HERMON - With $1,000 on the line at Speedway 95 Wednesday night, 41 drivers came out in droves to try to fight for the prize in the Nifty 50 Roadrunner race. There were plenty of stoppages, but one man ultimately stood tall to take home the prize.

 

Winterport's Jason Trundy, driving the No. 29 car, managed to outlast 40 others en route to the rare prize.
