HERMON, Maine — J.R. Robinson of Steuben solidified his lead in the Hopkin’s Landscaping and Paving series for the Dysart’s Late Models at Speedway 95 Saturday night when he won his second 75-lap feature of the four-race series.

Robinson started third and took the lead from Hermon’s John Curtis Jr. on the third lap, leading the rest of the way to the checkers. Brenton Parritt of Steuben closed in on Robinson as the laps ran down, but was still four-tenths of a second behind Robinson as they crossed the finish line.

Parritt took second, with Skowhegan’s Kris Matchett finishing third, two seconds behind Parritt. Asa Jones of Sullivan and Deane Smart of Bradley rounded out the top five.

The race went the entire 75-lap distance under green, with no caution flags. Parritt won the only qualifier for the division.
