After almost 30 years in the USAC Sprint Car Series, it seems Jack Hewitt would get bored, lose his passion or just tire of the short-track scene.

Not so. In fact, Hewitt may have a big reason to remain in the Sprint ranks for the foreseeable future. The 50-year-old veteran is within striking distance of the all-time Sprint win record set by Tom Bigelow, who has 52 career wins.

With his win in the third installment of Indiana Sprint Week on Tuesday night at Twin Cities Raceway Park in North Vernon, Ind., Hewitt now has 44 career wins. Hewitt already owns the Silver Crown win record with 23 trips to victory lane.

Hewitt’s win Tuesday night was his second of the season, (He won at Angell Park Speedway on June 10.) and it was never in question.

Hewitt led from start to finish to beat J.J. Yeley, Kevin Briscoe, Terry Pletch, Brian Tyler, Dickie Gaines, Levi Jones, Bud Kaeding, Tony Elliott and Dave Darland to the finish line.

With his 10th-place finish, Darland stretched his Sprint points lead over Jay Drake to 41 points. Drake, the winner Sunday night at Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt, Ind., was unable to qualify for the feature event.

Other winners at Twin Cities on Tuesday night included Eric Shively and Jerry Coons Jr. in the qualifying races; Shively, Tony Elliott, Dickie Gaines and Derek Scheffel in the heat races; and J.J. Yeley in the semi-feature. Tracy Hines was the fast qualifier.
