Seventeen cars raced in the Hornets 15 lap main event. #7 Ridge Oien crossed the finish line first but Brandon Olson in the blue #36 car was declared the winner after Oien did not pass tech. Olson was in a furious three-way battle much of the race with #55 Brandon Plekkenpol who finished second and #41 Ashley Bell who finished third. The racing in the Hornet division is intense and the number of fast cars is impressive, four different drivers have won the four feature events so far in 2017.
Justin Schelitzche #14 has not won a race yet this year at ELKO but he is the point leader by 3 over Brandon Olson with Ashley Bell and Brandon Plekkenpol tied for third and Michael Wachs Jr #3 currently fifth in the point standings.
