Just as Anderson pulled alongside on the final lap, Jackson got a breath of fresh air when the caution came out setting up a one lap shootout with Jackson taking the win by .519 seconds over Anderson.

July 5th, 2015
HAGERSTOWN, MD – When Gregg Satterlee shows up, other drivers need to have everything in order as he’s likely going to be the driver to beat that night. Such was the case Saturday at Hagerstown Speedway /Dirt Capitol for the Firecracker 40 by the Appalachian Mountain Late Model Speedweek crew as Indiana, PA.s Satterlee took advantage of a lap 29 restart to pass Brad Omps who had enjoyed a more than four second lead and several lapped car advantage. Satterlee sped away to a nearly three second lead to make it a $4,000 payday.
“We really had a good car,” Satterlee said. ”We had to make some changes tonight than what we normally do as the track was a little bit different. Brad had a really good car. I was trying to find him out there when I was racing with Austin (Hubbard) and Keith (Jackson) and I couldn’t see him. I knew he checked out and was gone, so I was lucky to get the caution when we did. I got a really good restart and was able to go around him and on a clean race track was able to run my line, keep my speed up and get going a little bit better. The track was awesome tonight.” Read more »
