“I had a great time this weekend. I’m very grateful for Jake (Whitehead) asking me to drive his racecar at I-75 (Raceway) on Friday night, and it was cool to get the win for the team,” Hedgecock said. “Then on Monday night we had a great race with some top-notch drivers at 411 (Motor Speedway) and came away with a fourth-place finish. Top-to-bottom it was a good Memorial Day weekend of racing.”
He added a fourth-place finish to his weekend accomplishments on Monday night at 411 Motor Speedway in his E-Z-GO / Noble Knights Construction Services No. 23 Budget Transmission / K&P Used Cars / Black Diamond Race Car / Eagle Racing Engine Super Late Model.
