Like and follow www.vintagesprintcars.com for the live stream of Greg Hodnett’s funeral service in PA.  Please keep the Hodnett family and their extended family in your thoughts and prayers.  Greg and Clayton were inseparable for 49 years.  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  on Sept. 21. a Thursday night.  Greg was a 2nd generation sprint car racer, a veteran sprint car driver and a member of the PA posse.  His sprint car career started in the Memphis area with his father Hoyette Hodnettwho died in 2012 after cancer.  Greg was tragically killed in a sprint car accident Thursday night at BAPS when he hit a guard rail head on and it is believed he died instantly.  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, 49, of Spring Grove, PA, passed away following a crash at BAPS Motor Speedway September 21.  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.  Greg's last tweet was Sept 14 on his father's birthday where he said "Wishing my father in Heaven a Happy Birthday.  Sure do miss him." He leaves behind his loving wife, Sherry, their children and grandchildren as well as his Loving mother Jean Hodnett, and his loving sisters Donna and Sheila and their families.  He leaves behind friends such as Clayton Allen, his friend for 49 Years and many more.
