Logan Winn proved true to his name, earning his first career victory at Weedsport Kartway last Thursday, July 16.
Winn came in first in the Super Heavy division's 10-kart field, which was part of the Short Port Shootout, a Kartway event that included more than 60 participants across seven different divisions.
After a spirited back-and-forth duel with track champion Nick McGill, Winn was able to edge Jason Moll right before the checkered flag. Winn is now the 29th different senior clone winner at Weedsport in 77 races.
Other senior clone winners included Thomas Montgomery and Dan Marsden. Montgomery was first place in the Clone Heavy, while Marsden crossed the finish line first in Clone Light.
Joey Williams returned to victory lane in the Jr. Red Clone, Levi Herriven won the Jr. Green Clone, and Parker Allen was victorious in Jr. Purple Clone. In the Jr. Unrestricted, Owen Bird earned his 13th win at Weedsport, more than any other driver.
Weedsport's Thursday Night Thunder returns Aug. 19.
