MCKENNA CELEBRATES BIRTHDAY WITH WIN!

Posted July 14, 2019
Charlie McKenna celebrated his birthday in style by picking up his second victory of the 2019 racing season on Saturday evening, July 13 at Hamilton County Speedway in Webster City, Iowa! After placing third in his heat race, but experiencing rocker arm trouble while doing so, Charlie jumped behind the wheel of his son Maxwell's car and rolled off from the tail end of the feature field. The Clear Lake, Iowa ace then streaked to the front of the pack, grabbed the point on lap six, and led the remainder of the distance to pocket the $600 top prize over Darrell DeFrance, Ryan Griffith, Gabe Umbarger, and Jason Hahne!
