The week before defending his HEMI Challenge at The Dutch championship, Jim Daniels took a hunting trip to Wyoming.

“It was neat, I went out there with a buddy I went to grad school with,” said Daniels, who bagged an elk. “It was beautiful. It’s so relaxing out there.”

Refreshed from the trip out West, Daniels then took his 1968 Dart back to Victory Lane at Maple Grove Raceway, winning the HEMI Challenge for a third consecutive year.

The race, which features 1968 Darts and Barracudas, is run annually in conjunction with the Pennsylvania Dutch Classic.
