Matt Hirschman won his fourth Turkey Derby XLVI on Saturday at Wall Stadium in Wall, New Jersey. This was his first win since the 2016 event.
Hirschman also won in 2012 and 2013. He completed the 100 lap race in an hour and 27 minutes.
Hirschman won the $5,000 prize for winning the race.
Those in attendance saw a wild ending. There was a wreck near the finish.
The promoter decided to end the race like that instead of doing a restart. Those in attendance were chanting for a restart.
He beat Zack Alspach, who finished second. Alspach was 1.865 seconds behind the winner.
Eddie McCarthy was the third place finisher. He was nearly three seconds off of the leader when he finished the race.
