Night 2 (Saturday Portion) of Nationals Winner is Steven Shebester

by Greg Soukup

Just as night 2 of the 2018 Racesaver Sprint Nationals began, that fictional deity Mother Nature came calling again. Evidently, since she couldn’t wipe out night one, she made a stronger try. After the third heat started the rains came; and they stayed! All together Saturday the track received 5 inches of liquid sunshine, and then another 2 inches on Sunday morning!!
