George Brennan drove his 8,000th winner Friday night, guiding Pass the Deck to victory in Yonkers Raceway's $11,000 pacing opener.
The 46-year-old Brennan, from Monticello, N.Y., won his first race behind Rob Ron Romper at his hometown track as a high school junior in 1982.
''Every number is special, and I think each one defines a stable career,'' Brennan said. ''When I first started driving in this area, I didn't even have a thousand wins. I reached that number at Freehold, so I've won nearly all of my races competing against the sport's elite drivers. I think that says something.''
