Winters wins Hub City 100

Marvin Winters scored his second win in three years, both in the last five weeks, on Saturday with a flag-to-flag, 50-lap victory in the 35th Annual Hub City 100 at Hagerstown Speedway.

"This has to be my number one win," Winters said of his career 23rd win. "It's great to get a big win like this, especially driving Tex Shaffer's car. He's been a great guy to drive for."

Winters, of McConnellsburg, Pa., earned his 23rd career victory by holding off the challenges of Andy Anderson, Ronnie DeHaven Jr., and Dan Stone to maintain more than a one-second lead through three cautions and restarts through the first 25 laps.

Winters continued on to take the $5,000 win by .69 seconds over Stone.

Chad Criswell, of Martinsburg, W.Va., saved his best move for last as he gained the lead in the final two laps to win the 50-lap super sportsman race for his fourth victory of the season.

Criswell passed Jason Fry, who assumed the lead on lap 11, on the 48th lap to pave the way to the $2,000 win.
