Driver Tony Morgan won seven races on the card, while celebrating his 50th birthday Thursday at Harrington Raceway. Also on the program, driver Jim King Jr. suffered a back injury in a stretch mishap.
Only Morgan, Brad Hanners and Brandon Givens have won seven races on a card at Harrington. Morgan is the only driver to achieve the feat twice on Delaware\'s half mile racetrack. Morgan currently has 119 wins at the current meet and 437 for the year, second most in the country behind Tim Tetrick.
King suffered a back injury while driving All American Wolf in the first race. The pacer broke stride while on the lead in the stretch and caused Mabaron Hanover, who was tailing closely, to run into the back of King, who remained seated throughout the mishap. He was taken to nearby Milford Memorial Hospital for further evaluation. His injuries were not believed to be serious at the time of this release. (Harrington)
