Aug. 9-10 Sunoco Race Fuels Money Trail results: Worner wins twice in ATI Stock-Super Stock

Lightning — red lightning, in the form of Byron Worner’s crimson VEGASFUEL Camaro — struck twice this weekend at Maple Grove Raceway. Worner, of Duncannon, Pa., won both rounds of final eliminations on Saturday and Sunday in the ATI Stock-Super Stock class. This was the final weekend for points in that division and Mark Petitdemange of Oxford, Pa., earned enough points to claim the championship. The championship is unofficial until points are verified, but Petitdemange had a substantial lead over second place driver Tony Curcio of West Chester, Pa.
