Shortly after wrapping up his time trial session, wet weather and an unfavorable forecast forced officials to cancel the remainder of Thursday’s prelim.
On Friday, Hedgecock followed up the 18th-fastest time in his group with a seventh-place finish in his heat. With $5,000 on the line in his preliminary feature, Cory marched forward nine spots in the 25-lapper to register a 12th-place finish.
For the finale on Saturday, Cory secured his spot into the $75,000-to-win North-South 100 with a runner-up finish in his B-Main after finishing fourth in his heat. Starting in 22nd, Hedgecock improved five spots in the talent-laden field to finish 17th.
