HERMON — Fourteen-year-old Emma Libby of Glenburn led from the drop of the green flag to the checkers in the Ladies Division at Speedway 95 Wednesday night and also won the 25-lap, three-race series.

Danielle Beal of Hampden led briefly on the restart after a lap 3 caution, but quickly relinquished the lead to Libby. Beal eventually was knocked out of the race when a broken wheel sent her car onto its roof. She was unhurt.

Amy Hood of West Enfield took the second spot with Winterport’s Chelsea Young finishing third. Fourth went to Angela Davis of Frankfort with Becky Elston Burns of Carmel fifth.
