Apple Motorsports driver Greg Hodnett and crew chief Lee Stauffer roared through Central Pennsylvania competition last weekend on Weld Racing Wheels, earning in excess of $13,000 for winning at Susquehanna Speedway Park and at the prestigious Tuscarora 50 at Port Royal Speedway.

Hodnett drove the Lee Stauffer-prepped Cars By Dealers Apple Motorsports MAXIM to a $3,500 victory at Susquehanna Speedway Park last Thursday, taking the regular $2,500 winner's share and a $1,000 bounty for beating the nation's winningest driver, Fred Rahmer. The team followed up with a huge win at Port Royal Speedway, taking home a $10,000 payday.

Stauffer has used Weld Racing Wheels exclusively for many years and offered some insight into his choice of race wheels saying "My father, Ed Stauffer ran a successful racing campaign with Weld Wheels back in the 70's. Since Kenny Weld and my father were good friends, we met at the PRI show at his CNC party and we were reacquainted with Weld Wheels in 1992."

"Everyone at Weld is easy to work with," continued Stauffer. "I can call anytime to obtain a quality piece of equipment."

Stauffer is known as an innovator and is not afraid to experiment. He admits he has applied that experimentation to his use of Weld Racing Wheels, adding "Yes, but I can't tell you, or I'd have to kill ya!"

Look for the Weld Racing Wheels-equipped Apple Motorsports Team to compete this weekend at Susquehanna Speedway Park, Williams Grove Speedway, and at Selinsgrove Speedway's National Open.
