Greg Hodnett, 49, died on Thursday, September 20, 2018 from injuries sustained in a sprint car crash at the BAPS Motor Speedway, the former Susquehanna Speedway, in Newberry Township, Pennsylvania.

Greg was a professional race car driver, competing with the World of Outlaws and a member of the Pennsylvania Posse for the past 19 years. He amassed over 250 career sprint car wins and won multiple championships.

“We lost a great racer and human being. The people who need the most support at this time are the Hodnett family,” said a spokesperson for Champion Racing Oil. “First and foremost, Greg was a beloved husband, son, brother, father, grandfather, and more. Please pray for his entire family and keep them in your thoughts and well wishes. All contributions will go directly to Greg’s family.” https://www.gofundme.com/hodnett27

Motorsports pros Rick Jones, Kevin Lawrence, Dave River, and Jeff Wick have announced the rebirth of the Midwest Pro Stock Association (MPSA), a drag racing series formed by Jim Wick in the late 1980s. The series folded following the passing of Wick in 2002. 

“A group of us were together at the World Series of Drag Racing at Cordova—which itself is an end-of-the-season match race—and we thought it would be a good deal to bring back match racing year-round like they used to. So I called [Jim’s son] Jeff Wick to see if we could use the MPSA name. He was on board and even wanted to help and compete, too,” Lawrence said to PRI. “Jeff will compete in the Matchmaker car they haven’t run since Jim’s passing.”
