​​*******************************************************************************Please keep the Hodnett family and their extended family in your thoughts and prayers.  Greg and Clayton were inseparable in the early years of Greg's racing locally.  Clayton and Greg campaigned a sprint car and were close friends and that friendship continued even though Greg was living in Pennsylvania.  Greg was tragically killed in a sprint car race in Pennsylvania Thursday night.  Greg whose sprint car career started in the Memphis area with his father Hoyt Hodnett was killed in a sprint car accident Thursday night.  Quoting from the World of Outlaws news release:  "It is with heavy hearts that we express our deepest condolences to the family and friends of sprint car driver Greg Hodnett and the Heffner Racing Team.  Hodnett, 48, of spring Grove, PA, passed away following a crash during a sprint car race Thursday night at BAPS Motor Speedway.  Greg was a member of the Pennsylvania Posse.  The racing family will miss his relentless passion and insight, and especially the ease with which he could talk about sprint car racing with his unique perspective on its  history."  "To me. Greg represented the true gentleman competitor in the pit area," World of Outlaws CEO Brian Carter.
