LAWRENCEBURG – Beating local thunderstorms to the finish line Saturday, Lawrenceburg Speedway was able to complete all four race car classes on Budweiser Fan Appreciation Night.

Greenfield's CJ Leary, defending Lawrenceburg Chevrolet Sprint Car division track points champion, parked his car in victory lane for the first time this year.

Not running in the best of luck lately, Leary made it look like his fortunes may be changing in Saturday's 25-lap sprint feature.

Indy's Jarrett Andretti took the lead on the opening lap, before two-time track champion Joss Moffatt, of Columbus, assumed command on lap three.

RISING SUN – Hometown favorites always have played a big role in Southeast Indiana Racing Circuit's summer 5K series races.

Rising Sun's first annual Shiner Dash 5K Run/Walk Saturday -returning to the SIRC-it schedule for the first time since 2011 - witnessed the triumphant return of Ohio County native Laura Schweitzer Haefeli.

Reminiscent of the days when Rising Sun High School's Schweitzer twins dominated area girls distance running, Haefeli won the 3.1-mile women's title in a time of 19:06, finishing in front of her alma mater.

Now 46, married, with children, and a resident of Del Norte, Colorado – in picturesque Rio Grande County in the southwest region of the Centennial State – Haefeli was the USA Track & Field Mountain Runner of the Year in 2004 and 2005.
