HEARN WINS 358-MODIFIED SKOAL BANDIT RACING sm SUPER DIRT SERIES POINT TITLE WEEDSPORT, NY...Brett Hearn took the point title in this year's Skoal Bandit Racing sm Super DIRT Series for 358-Modifieds. Hearn, driving his Auto Zone sponsored Teo chassised racer, won three of the 12 races in this year's series, with wins coming at Brockville, Can Am and at the series finale at Rolling Wheels this past Saturday. Hearn pocketed $21,900 in purse earnings during this year's 12 race series. Hearn's closest competitor was Alan Johnson, as the points battle developed into a two man race late in the series. Johnson, winner of five series races, lost ground to Hearn after a post race inspection at Frogtown concerning engine heads. Johnson, the 1998 track champion at Merrittville Speedway in the 358-Modified division, finished second in points to Hearn, and earned $19,050 in purses earnings during the 12 race series. The top twelve in series points will split nearly $30,000 in point fund money at this year's annual DIRT Awards Banquet in Alexandria Bay, NY, on November 7. These twelve drivers also receive provisional starter status at 358-Modified Series races in 1999, along with any driver to have won a 358-Modified series race in 1998.
