What won the race: Winning the Delaware State Dirt Track Championship for the first time, polesitter Austin Hubbard of Seaford, Del., returned to the track for a $7,885 payday at Delaware International Speedway.

Quotable: “I’ve led 49 laps a couple of times and 48 laps once,” the 24-year-old Hubbard said. “It is really great to finally win this one.”

Donald Lingo Jr. and Robbie Emory tangled for a lap-14 caution; Emory recovered to finish fifth. ... Kerry King Jr. spun for another caution. ...
