Jensen, Hammer Double-Up in Jr. Dragster Classes at US 131 Motorsports Park

Clark Lake’s Donnie Hagar added a Sunday victory in Modified to the one he earned in on Saturday in the Street class to complete a dominating weekend in the Lane Automotive Bracket Series at US 131 Motorsports Park.

Hagar just missed a third win when he broke out by .004 of a second in Sunday’s Street final against Jeff Connor of Kalamazoo.  Nevertheless, Hagar wasn’t the only multiple winner.  Jr. Dragster drivers Connor Jensen of Vicksburg and Blayke Hammer of Belding both swept their classes with wins on both Saturday and Sunday.

Jensen beat Hunter Scholten of West Olive in both Advanced Jr. Dragster finals while Hammer owned the distinction of winning Saturday’s Beginner Jr. Dragster title with one of the worst reaction times imaginable and Sunday’s with the best in the history of the category at .001 of a second.

Other Sunday winners included Jeff Ledford of Stanton in Top ET, Bill Swain of Ionia in the Mojo Quick 16 and Maverick Green of Grand Haven in Master Jr. Dragster.
