Inside Line Promotions – ELDON, Mo. (Sept. 5, 2017) – Derek Hagar scored a pair of podium finishes last weekend during the 8th annual 360 Nationals at Lake Ozark Speedway.

Hagar kicked off the ASCS Warrior Region doubleheader on Saturday by finishing where he started – third – in a heat race. That ranked 15th best in heat race points and locked him into the 15th starting position for the main event.

“The race track was one lane in the heat races,” he said. “We barely made it in without having to run a B Main. The race track played into our favor in the feature. We came up through there. We were within the top 10 in the first eight laps. Toward the end I noticed I was catching Jonathan Cornell and Terry McCarl. We got up to third and was making a run at them. Lapped traffic was just fast enough in the line I was wanting to run so it stalled me out. We settled for third and locked ourselves into Sunday’s feature redraw. I didn’t want to do anything crazy and knock ourselves out.”

Hagar, who also netted a $200 bonus for winning the dash, finished third and earned a spot in Sunday’s feature redraw. He pulled the No. 3 during the random redraw to start the main event on the inside of the second row.

“We got up to second right off the bat and was underneath (Brian) Brown,” he said. “Cornell got around me up top. I moved up there and followed him for a while. I made a couple of runs through the middle. I think I showed my cards too early. He moved down and we rode in third for the longest time. We hung with them. I just couldn’t make a move.”

Hagar placed third, which was his 24th top five of the season.

Hagar will compete in both his sprint car and midget this Saturday at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark., with the ASCS Mid-South Region and POWRi Lucas Oil West Midget Series.

“I’m pretty excited about doing double duty,” he said. “It’s always exciting to get back in a midget. I’m looking forward to it. We’ve had some good runs at I-30 this year with the sprint car so hopefully we can contend for another win.”

Saturday will mark Hagar’s third start of the season in a midget. He has earned a win and a runner-up result during two sprint car starts at the quarter-mile track this season.
