BEDFORD, PA -- A name that has certainly become synonymous with Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 victory lane, Dillsburg, Pennsylvania’s Anthony Macri, ace of the Sam McGhee Motorsports No. 11, powered his way back to the top of the running order Sunday night in Bedford Speedway’s Junior Ritchey Tribute, simultaneously concluding the inaugural Tri-State Summer Swing presented by Elliott’s Custom Trailers and Carts with his sixth Series triumph of the season. The 2022 Bob Weikert Memorial and Rayce Rudeen Foundation Race champion led all 30 circuits around Bedford’s half-mile, his second-ever All Star victory at the historic south-central Pennsylvania fairgrounds.

Although in charge the entire distance, Macri’s campaign at the front of the field did not go completely unchallenged. Justin Peck, who recently snagged his eighth All Star win of the year in Lincoln Speedway’s Kramer Klash, mounted some heavy pressure on the former Posse rep turned All Star, showing his nose on multiple occasions between laps 12 and 14. Heavy traffic helped Peck’s cause, but unfortunately, the pilot of the Buch Motorsports No. 13 suffered a flat on lap 24 forcing the All Star championship contender to go pit side.

Despite the caution, eventually resulting in an open red, Macri held strong, driving on to keep Tyler Courtney, Sye Lynch, Mike Wagner, and Gio Scelzi at bay.

“I think I’ve been to Bedford three times and I’ve won two of them…it’s a place that really fits my driving style,” Macri explained, who earned $2,225 in lap money on top of his $6,000 payday . “These guys gave me an awesome car tonight. They all work so well together and all know what they have to do. I just can’t thank Mike and Kathy McGhee enough for the opportunity to be a part of this race team…I really can’t thank them enough.”

The Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will continue competition with the two-day Sharon Nationals at Sharon Speedway in Hartford, Ohio, on Friday and Saturday, September 2-3. The Sharon double, headlined with the annual Lou Blaney Memorial, will award $6,000 and $12,000, respectively.
