Williams Grove World Of Outlaws 54th Annual Champion Racing Oil National Open This Week Has Storied & Historic Past

Saturday Open pays $50,000 to win!

9/25/16

Mechanicsburg – Sprint car fans in the East will gather this Saturday night to see the 54th running of the Williams Grove Speedway Champion Racing Oil National Open for sprint cars sanctioned by the World of Outlaws Craftsman sprint car series, going 40-laps in distance and paying $50,000 to the winner.

The National Open has a grand history that dates back to its inception and first champion in 1963.

Eventual Indianapolis 500 champion Gordon Johncock of Hastings, Mich., won the 100-lap affair in a contraption that had what looked like a wing atop its roll cage.

And this too would soon come to pass, as sprint cars would begin taking over dirt tracks in the east, including Williams Grove Speedway.

Ohio USAC standout Larry Dickson scored Open round two in 1964. Western Pennsylvania invader Henry Jacoby of Franklin took 1965.

The name of Blaney graced the National Open winner’s circle in 1966 as family patriarch Lou took Open laurels decades before his sons Dave and Dale would compete on the scene.

Bobbie Adamson, becoming a region name, took back-to-back victories in 1967 and 1968 before a virtual unknown named Gene Varner from Selinsgrove drove a back-up Gary Wasson No. 5 to an upset win in 1969 after a distance of 150 laps.

The decade of the 1970’s dawned with Altoona flyer Johnny Grum picking up the Open win.

The first of three consecutive wins by Midwest transplant Kenny Weld took place in 1971. All three of Weld’s wins came aboard the Bob Weikert No. 29.

Another transplant, The Bandit, Steve Smith Sr., took wins in 1974 and again in a rain-shortened 122-lap race in 1976 while The Original Outlaw, Bobby Allen drove to a win in 1975.

Texas native racing brother Van May took the 1977 version of the National Open before the Pink Panther struck in 1978 with a Kramer Williamson 100-lap win.

Smokey Snellbaker drove to victory for Charlie Lloyd in 1979 before the grandson of a coal miner named Lucas, Allen Klinger of Hegins kicked off the 1980’s with a 40-lap victory.

Steve Smith Sr. returned for a third Open triumph in 1981.

Lynn Paxton went back-to-back in 1982 and 1983 and stunned the racing world after his second 75-lap win by announcing his early retirement from the sport in victory lane.

Three more in a row for owner Bob Weikert came at the hands of South Dakota driver Doug Wolfgang from 1984 – 1986.

Wolfgang got stunned, denied and passed by Joey Allen for the victory in 1987.

The Mouse, Kenny Jacobs of Holmesville, Ohio, took another win for Weikert in 1988.

The year 1989 found the first true World of Outlaws National Open contested as the yearly sanctioning began with Stevie Smith taking a victory to carry on his father’s tradition.

Technically, the 1978 National Open was considered an outlaws race as well although no outlaws drivers competed in the event.

One of if not the greatest sprint car driver(s) of all time, Hoosier Steve Kinser took his first National Open checkers in 1990.

Stevie Smith returned for another Open win, both for car owner Al Hamilton, in 1991, and now at a distance of 50 laps.

Kinser was again the champion in 1992 before daytime specialist Don Kreitz Jr. drove to victory under the Sunday sun in 1993 after 40 laps of action.

Steve Kinser was again the winner in 1994 before outlaw cousin Mark Kinser took 1995.

The locals went back in front in 1996 with Lance Dewease and No. 461 car owner Walt Dyer.

Sammy Swindell won his first National Open in 1997 on a night that had fans returning to frozen windshields on their cars by the time the race ended.

Persistent rain forced a non-sanctioned event in 1998, won by modified turned sprint star Billy Pauch in a mount owned by John Zemaitis.

Mark Kinser returned for victory in 1999 before one of today’s outlaws stars and champions, Donny Schatz took his first win in 2000 as part of what would become a historic record in National Open competition in another 13 years.

Dewease returned the laurels to the PA Posse turf with back-to-back wins in 2001 and 2002, for car owners Joe Harz and Al Hamilton, taking $25,000 and $30,000, respectively on both accounts.

Steve Kinser was again the winner in 2003 before Schatz returned for two in a row in 2004 and 2005.

The first $50,000 to win National Open was scored by Lancaster’s Doug Esh in 2006 and as it turned out it was the richest and shortest Open in history when rains hit on lap 26 of 40.

Schatz was again the winner in 2007.

Thanks to more persistent rain, another unsanctioned event in 2008 saw future outlaws and All Stars star Cody Darrah drive to victory.

Greg Hodnett took a hugely popular National Open victory for the PA Posse in 2009 driving the Jim and Sandy Kline No. 22.

Sammy Swindell got the second Open win of his career in 2010.

West coast flyer Jason Meyers took the 40-lap, $50,000 laurels in 2011.

The 2012 version saw North Dakota’s Schatz surge for an unprecedented fifth career win in the prestigious classic National Open.

With the $50,000, 40-lap victory, Schatz became the winningest driver in National Open history, breaking a four-win tie with Steve Kinser.

In 2013, the grand career of local driver Fred Rahmer of Salfordville was capped off at Williams Grove with his first and only triumph in the lucrative, prestigious National Open as Rahmer led the final 31 laps of the 40-lap feature before the veteran retired from the sport at the close of the season.

Connecticut driver David Gravel took the $50,000 win in 2014 but not without controversy.

The outlaws flyer was overtaken by local favorite Stevie Smith during the last half of the race before the slightest of contact from a closely following Gravel found Smith spinning in the first turn with six laps to go while Gravel retook command for the victory.

And then Stevie Smith got redemption in what was to be the first three-day National Open in history in 2015.

After three consecutive days of rain stopped the event dead in its tracks, a break with the weather on Sunday allowed a raindated Open to be completed with Smith taking the lead from Danny Dietrich on the ninth tour to lead the final 31 circuits and beat Schatz to the line for victory.

Saturdays National Open action begins at 6:30 pm.

Admission prices for Saturday’s National Open are $35 for adults and $20 for youth.

And please remember, kids ages 12 and under are always admitted free at Williams Grove Speedway.

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 24, 2016 SUSQUEHANNA SPEEDWAY RACE RESULTS

FRANKIE HERR TAKES SECOND WIN/RUSS MITTEN CAPTURES CHAMPIONSHIP Randy Stoudt (358 LM), Eddie Richards (Street Stock) and Travis Brown(Road Warriors) also take Wins

By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway YORK HAVEN, PA 9/24/16

For the second time in a month, veteran racer Frankie Herr raced to the win in Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman competition at Susquehanna Speedway.

The Carlisle, PA drivers win came in Saturday night’s 25-lap feature event, which was the final regular season point race.

While Herr was dominating out front, Newville, PA driver Russ Mitten was carving his way through the field after lining up 16th on the grid. Mitten advanced to the fifth position which coupled with Scott Geesey’s fourth place finish, put him in a tie for the 2016 Credit Connection Auto Sales track championship.

The tiebreaker for the track championship went to the driver with the most wins during the season, in which Mitten visited victory lane three times, which gives him the championship in the first season of the Scott Gobrecht/Kolten Gouse era at Susquehanna.

Both drivers finished with 2,810 total points. Geesey had two wins this season. Sportsman 100 winner Scott Dellinger finished third in points (2,730) followed by Tony Jackson (2,490) and Mike Enders (2,350).

Herr lined up 12th as Chase Gutshall led the first five laps of the Super Sportsman feature before heading to the pit area.

Rich Eichelberger took over but his lead was short-lived as Herr drove into the lead with seven laps complete and never looked back in taking his second win of the season the Bill Devine owned car.

Eichelberger held on for the runner-up spot ahead of ninth-starting Tony Jackson, 11th starting Scott Geesey and 16th starting Russ Mitten.

Completing the top ten finishers were Scott Dellinger, Jay Fannasy, Kenny Edkin, Mike Enders and Timmie Barrick.

Nate Young, Herr and Justin Foster were heat race winners for the 29-car field with Edkin winning the consolation.

Manchester, PA’s Eddie Richards became the ninth different winner in the caution-filled 20-lap Street Stock feature.

Richards started second and went out front on lap three and drove to his first win of the season over ninth starter and current point leader Mike Potts, Ryan Smith, Craig Morgan and Bob Scott, Jr.

Doug Hoffman raced home sixth over Paul Morgan, Joey Hoffer, Kevin Sigler and Walt Lemmon.

Heats for the 25 Street Stocks were won by Smith, Potts and Jim Palm.

Randy Stoudt outraced point leader Randy Christine, Jr. to secure his fifth win of the season in the 25-lap Precise Racing 358 Late Model feature.

Stoudt led laps nine through 19 before giving way to Christine on the 20th lap. But Stoudt wold regain the lead on the next circuit as the two drivers put on a side by side show.

A caution on lap 23 ended the great race as Stoudt drove off to the win over the final laps over Christine, lap one leader Daulton Bigler, 10th starting Cam Zeigler and Charles Potts with Steve Billet, Shaun Jones, Ron Kline, Jake Jones and Chase Billet completing the top ten finishers.

Chase Billet, Steve Billet and Christine were heat winners for the 23 cars.

Travis Brown led all 15 laps of the Road Warrior feature to capture his third win of the season and strengthened his track point lead.

Brown took the checkered flag over Daryl Sipe, Justin Cardasso, Robbie Carroll and Lee Redman.

Brown and Redman were heat winners with 17 cars pitside.

Susquehanna Speedway will be dark on October 1 but returns to action on Saturday, October 8 with the final appearance of the season for the Super Sportsman. They will go in the Hess Ornamental Iron Harvest Classic, a 40-lap feature paying $2,000 to win. The Street Stocks and Xtreme Stocks are also on the program. Pits open at 3PM, Grandstands at 4PM with Racing at 6PM.

LINCOLN SPEEDWAY

Abbottstown, PA

THIRD ANNUAL “DIRT CLASSIC”

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Sat., Oct. 1, 2016 - NO RACING

Sat., Oct. 8, 2016 (6 PM) - HANK GENTZLER MEMORIAL MANUFACTURERS APPRECIATION RACE Presented by Panchos Racing Products - FINAL RACE OF SEASON - 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints & All-American Outlaws [Rain date Sunday, 10/9 @ 6 PM]

STEVIE SMITH CLAIMS $20,000 TOP PRIZE IN LINCOLN SPEEDWAY “DIRT CLASSIC”

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 9/24/2016 – “I said at the beginning of the night that the only thing better than winning a Lincoln Dirt Classic was winning two of them.”

So said Stevie Smith after claiming his second win in three years in the 40-lap $20,000-to-win “Dirt Classic” in the Pigeon Hills Saturday night.

Smith, who started third after setting third-fast time and gathering the third-most points in time trials and qualifying, followed front row starters Lucas Wolfe and James McFadden the first two laps before catching the Kasey Kahne Racing #4 in turns three and four of lap three.

One lap later saw the “Dirt Classic” lose its front row, with McFadden turning over in turn four to bring out the red, and then Wolfe going to the pits with an oil leak during the red flag. Smith assumed the lead for the restart, with Danny Dietrich, Gerard McIntyre, and Matt Campbell in tow.

But it was only the first time he led the race, as Dietrich closed on the leader in lapped traffic. Smith, who admitted having trouble with the lapped traffic, lost the lead to Dietrich on turn four of lap 30. One lap later, Adam Wilt flipped in turn four, leading to a fuel stop. At the time, 11th-starting and rapidly closing Greg Hodnett was about to make it a three-car battle for the lead.

And that’s exactly what it became on the restart with nine laps to go. Smith and Dietrich both bounced off the walls on subsequent slide jobs, with Smith coming out with the lead on lap 35. A lap later, the final caution of the event came out for Cory Haas, who spun in turn one.

That set up a dramatic three-car battle between Smith, Dietrich, and Hodnett for the win over the final five laps.

“I told Fred (Rahmer) during the red that Danny’s going to go to the top, so we’re going to have to run the bottom,” said Smith in victory lane, “When I saw him peel down to the bottom, I knew that was my chance to go back around him on the top. We finished second last year and we didn’t wait to finish second again this year. We ran our tail off. Danny did a nice job, but when you get out there in the lead, you’re not sure which way to go. He’s been really fast this year. I think being in second may have won us that race.”

“All these guys are tough in my book,” concluded Smith when reflecting on a talent-laden 48-car field, “The older I get the better they look!”

In the end, Smith pulled away to a 1.03-second win over Dietrich, with Hodnett settling for third. Lance Dewease received the $700 bonus ($500 from the Beer Hill Gang and $200 from Winebrenner Harley in Hanover) as hard charger for coming from 14th starting spot to finish fourth, with Brian Montieth coming from 15th starting spot to finish fifth.

Sixth through tenth were McIntyre, Tim Wagaman, Jim Siegel, Campbell, and Ryan Smith.

The final transfer spot of the night went to J.J. Grasso, as he and track champ Alan Krimes got together just before the finish line in the B main, with Krimes crossing sideways at the finish line to cross fifth.

Fast time in time trials over the 48-car field was set by Matt Campbell, running his first-ever Lincoln 410 sprint car race, with a one-lap time of 13.182-seconds (102.412 MPH).

Two rounds of heats were won by James McFadden, Lucas Wolfe, Bill Balog, Danny Dietrich, Ryan Smith, Terry McCarl, JJ Grasso, Greg Hodnett, Brent Marks, and Adam Wilt. Tyler Esh won the C-Main and Freddie Rahmer won the B-Main.

Next Saturday night, Oct. 1st, Lincoln will be dark to allow its drivers to compete in the Williams Grove National Open.

Lincoln returns to action for its season finale on Saturday, October 8th with the annual Hank Gentzler Memorial Manufacturers Appreciation Night presented by Panchos Racing Products featuring the 410 and 358 sprint cars, along with the All American Outlaws. Gates for that show open at 4:00 p.m. with the first qualifier scheduled for 6:00 p.m.

FROM WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY
SEPTEMBER 23, 2016
GREG HODNETT TUNES UP FOR CHAMPION RACING OIL NATIONAL OPEN WITH SPRINT CAR FEATURE WIN

Phil Walter beats track champion Kevin Nouse at the line for 358 sprint win
MECHANICSBURG, PA – Greg Hodnett went into the night as the Williams Grove Speedway point leader, but hadn’t won a 410 sprint car feature at the track since the end of March.
He changed that stat Friday night as he took the lead from Lucas Wolfe in lapped traffic and controlled the final 14 laps to win his first 410 feature at the track since the second race of the season. He did win three features in the 360 sprints over the course of the summer.
Things were going Hodnett’s way, but a header pipe broke off with three laps to go affecting the car’s performance.
“We lost a lot of horsepower, but being out in front we had a huge advantage to dictate when to take off and how hard I could run,” said Hodnett, of Spring Grove. “We had a lot of things go our way. We were lucky to finish and had a pretty good car. We are pretty happy going into next week.”
Wolfe started on the pole and drove into the lead over Hodnett to start the final 25-lap main event before next weekend’s Champion Racing Oil National Open.
Wolfe led by about a half-straightaway with five laps completed as they raced around a fast cushion.
As Wolfe closed on the back of the field, Hodnett closed on him with 10 laps completed. Hodnett made an inside move off turn four to take the lead the next time around.
“We caught two guys that were running the top in lapped traffic,” said Hodnett. “Lucas had to momentarily check-up getting into turn three. I shot to the bottom and waited to hit the moisture coming down the straightaway and it worked out for us. Sometimes, it’s better to run second in those situations.”
The red flag stopped the race with 14 laps completed for a hard third turn crash by Danny Dietrich, who walked back to the pit area. A major clean-up was needed as Dietrich’s sprinter leaked fuel across the third turn.
Hodnett led the field down for the double-file restart as the Grove used the World of Outlaws format for the race. Lance Dewease pitted from the fifth spot before the restart.
Wolfe tried to take the lead back, but Hodnett slammed the door as they raced into turn three. Stevie Smith and Wolfe raced hard for second as Hodnett pulled away. Cory Haas drove by Aaron Ott and into fifth.
Hodnett streaked away from the field as Wolfe secured second from Smith. The race was slowed with three laps to go for debris on the race track (Hodnett’s header). It was a single-file restart because it was less than five to go.
Wolfe stayed with Hodnett following the restart, but it was the Williams Grove point leader picking up his first win since the end of March over Wolfe, Smith, Rahmer and Haas. Doug Esh, who helped assist Dietrich from his crashed car, finished sixth. Alan Krimes, Ott, James McFadden in Kasey Kahne’s sprinter and Brent Marks rounded out the top 10.
Dewease set fast time over the 30-car field with a lap of 16.532 seconds. Smith, Hodnett, Wolfe and Rahmer completed the top five qualifiers. Dewease, Smith and Hodnett won the heat races. Wolfe won the dash. Bill Balog won the B-main.
In the 358 sprint feature, it was Phil Walter of Beavertown grabbing the race lead from Dave Thrush with nine laps completed. Walter streaked away from the field and had a 2.5 second lead with two laps remaining when the red flag stopped the race for Eric Parker in turn three. He was okay.
Jordan Givler worked on Walter for the lead as track champion Kevin Nouse made it a three-car race for the win. Nouse got by Givler in turn one and put a last lap slider on Walter in turns three and four. Walter turned his car back under Nouse and just beat him back to the checkers to get the win.
Givler, Chandler Leiby and Adrian Shaffer completed the top five. Thrush, Jared Esh, Nyle Berkes, Todd Reed and Brie Hershey rounded out the top 10.
Shaffer, Nouse and Matt Findley won the 358 sprint heat races.
The three-day Champion Racing Oil Williams Grove National Open sanctioned by the World of Outlaws begins Thursday night with a $10,000 to win main event. An identical program will be run Friday night. The 40-lap National Open will pay $50,000 to win on Saturday night.

SUSQUEHANNA SPEEDWAY RACE RESULTS THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 2016

DANNY DIETRICH TAKES HOME EXCITING SUSQUEHANNA WIN

Bob Stough Wins Legends Feature

By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA 9/22/16

Danny Dietrich tweeted “it will be a win it or wear it kind of night” Thursday afternoon in reference to Thursday night’s BAPS Coatings & Supplies 410 Sprint Series Justin Snyder “Salute to the Troops” event at Susquehanna Speedway. And he wasn’t kidding.

While he nearly “wore it” on several occasions during the 30-lap feature event, the Gettysburg driver remained relentless, pounding the top of the speedway and then “won it” when race-long leader Aaron Ott caught a rut on the final on the final lap exiting the second corner.

Ott’s bobble was just what Dietrich needed to blast into the lead and lead the final half lap to become the first repeat winner in BAPS 410 Sprint Series competition this season. It was his eighth career Susquehanna win.

“I was sitting there catching my breath because my arms are just pumping right now,” Dietrich stated in victory lane following the intense high speed battle on the tricky track. “I had a death grip on the steering wheel. I thought I was gonna crash three or four times down there in one and two and lost a lot of ground and had to catch back up.”

By virtue of his dash win, Ott grabbed the lead at the start followed by Greg Hodnett and Dietrich.

It didn’t take Ott long to catch the rear of the field and was racing in heavy traffic on lap nine when Trey Starks stopped in turn one to bring out the caution.

The race went red on lap 10 when Davey Sammons flipped hard in turn three as Australia’s Lynton Jeffrey also turned over. Neither driver was injured.

Ott again stormed into the lead but Hodnett was making some challenges before Ott began to open some distance at the halfway mark of the race.

Hodnett and Dietrich battled hard for the runner-up spot in heavy traffic on lap 18 as Hodnett closed on Ott as they continued to race through traffic as the laps clicked off.

Ott maintained a slight lead with five laps to go as Dietrich used a lapped car to make a move for second spot on Hodnett with three laps remaining.

Dietrich closed on Ott and was right on Ott’s bumper when the East Berlin driver caught the turn two rut, just turning his car enough to allow Dietrich to drive by and score the win.

“I wasn’t following him through one and two and I knew the only way would be around the top,” said Dietrich about his last lap plan to win the race. “I thought maybe he’d baby it but then he hit that rut the wrong way and I knew if I could beat him off the corner, we’d be okay.”

Dietrich’s win was worth $5,000 and was the eighth of the season for the Gary Kauffman Racing owned team. The win came in a race dedicated to the memory of Justin Snyder, a huge race fan and retired combat veteran of the U.S. Army, whose life was cut short earlier this year.

Ott settled for the runner-up spot ahead of Hodnett with California driver Tim Kaeding fourth and North Carolina’s Dave Blaney fifth.

Completing the top 10 finishers were Australian invader James McFadden driving for NASCAR driver Kasey Kahne, Lucas Wolfe, Ryan Smith, Brent Marks and Brian Montieth.

Smith earned $500 from the Beer Hill Gang for his fast time in time trials over the 30-car field.

Sprint car heats were won by Kaeding, Wolfe and Hodnett with Starks winning the consolation.

Tyler Esh earned the Hard Charger award after starting 24th and finishing 18th. He took home $500 courtesy of the McSherrystown’s Moose Lodge 720 along with a $400 gift certificate from Brown and Miller Racing Solutions.

East Berlin’s Bob Stough came home with the win in the 20-lap Servicemasters Clean Central PA Legends feature over Mason Chaney, Scott Houdeshell, Travis Perry and Jeff Herbst.

Heats for the 24 Legends were won by Harlon Leppo, Reed Salony and Chad Earnst.

Susquehanna Speedway returns to action this Saturday, September 24 with the return of the Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman joined by the 358 Late Models, Street Stocks and Road Warriors. Pits open at 4pm, Grandstands at 5pm with racing at 7pm.

Port Royal Keystone RaceSaver Challenge Adds Jake Waters As Guest Announcer

Event Set For October 8

9/18/2016

Port Royal - The fifth annual Keystone RaceSaver Challenge at Port Royal Speedway has added a familiar name to the event. Former KRC champ Jake Waters of Mifflintown will join as guest announcer for the event, offering color commentary during the evening.

Waters has also agreed to serve as Master of Ceremonies and host the PASS series banquet on January 17, 2017.

“Jake is an articulate and energetic personality” stated series director Rod Ort.

“We would love to have a full time announcer traveling with the series and while Jake is physically unable to race we’re excited to have him try out the announcing duties."

Waters was badly burned in a crash at Selinsgrove Speedway on July 3 and continues a full recovery.

Hosted by the PA Sprint Series (PASS), the Port Royal Keystone RaceSaver Challenge is the series' biggest race and the interregional race invites RaceSaver teams from everywhere to compete for a purse exceeding $10,000 in a fun and friendly environment.

Over its four-year history at Port Royal, the car count has exceeded 50 cars each year.

Waters won the event in 2013, picking up his first ever win in the affair and has been a factor in every race run to date with two other top-five finishes while dropping out while running well in the third annual event.

“Jake knows all of these guys and can do a great job telling fans about the teams and their sponsors” continued Ort.

“This race and our banquet will be a celebration of what Jake has overcome this year and Jake is pumped to help showcase this event at his home track of Port Royal with his fellow racers and fans.”

Jake’s father Curt is a well-known wrench at the speedway and the Waters family has roots deep in the history of the oval.

The series has presented the father/son team with an affordable way to stay competitive.

RaceSaver is an affordable sprint car series and has exploded in popularity throughout the country.

This year’s recent RaceSaver®/IMCA nationals in Nebraska had 119 cars in attendance and was the largest car count for one division of sprint cars since the Knoxville nationals in 1979.

PASS is among the largest regions in the country.

Several former drivers have seen success in 410, 358 and 360-sprint action such as previous champions Logan Wagner, Tyler Bear and 2015 Selinsgrove champion Eric Parker but many talented drivers are choosing to stick with the series as it continues to garner national attention.

The 2015 PASS series champ, Zach Newlin finished fourth nationally in 2015 RaceSaver ranking and while locked in a tight race for the 2016 PASS title both Newlin and Ken Duke Jr. are in the top 15 nationally this year along with rookie Scott Lutz.

Several teams that will be at the Port Royal race were among the 119 at the recent nationals, making an impressive debut in their first appearance. Mark Watkins topped the group finishing 12th overall.

The PA Sprint Series is a RaceSaver ® regional series sanctioned by IMCA.

Teams from TSRS (Tri State RaceSaver Series), LHSS (Laurel Highlands Sprint Series), VSS Virginia Sprint Series) and CRSA (Capitol Region Sprint Association) are among those registered for the Port Royal October 8 race while any RaceSaver® registered team throughout the country is invited to compete.

Visitors picked up victories in the first and third installment with locals winning the other two events run to date.

The series is looking for lap sponsors for the Port Royal event at $100 each as well as a fan participation prize sponsors and pre-registration contingencies for the first 50 teams that register. Race Sponsors will begin to appear on the event web site at keystoneracesaverchallenge.com within the next week.

A complete itinerary is being developed as sponsors sign on.

Interested parties can contact webmaster@pasprintseries.com or call Christi Baker at 717-648-7483.

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY

17 September 2016 By Michael Batz

WOLFE CLOSES OUT SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY SEASON IN RECORD-SETTING PACE WITH NACE MEMORIAL NATIONAL OPEN SPRINT CAR VICTORY; YODER WINS LATE MODEL FINALE FROM 13th STARTING POSITION!

SELINSGROVE, Pa. -- Lucas Wolfe of Mechananicsburg entered Selinsgrove Speedway Saturday for time trials and laid down the quickest lap of the night at 16.353 seconds. That would be an indication of what was to come for the 410 Sprint Car field in attendance for the Jim Nace Memorial 34th Annual National Open.

Wolfe, the 2005 winner of the event, qualified from his heat race to lock into the main event, and he would lead the field to the green flag for 30 laps and go on to set a new track record for the distance in 9:21.300, eclipsing the record held by Doug Wolfgang since 1985.

By lap five Wolfe was already catching the tail of the field and began to maneuver through lap traffic. Wolfe showed the way over Hodnett, Ryan Smith, Blane Heimbach, and TJ Stutts as lap sixth flashed onto the score board.

The distance between Wolfe and Hodnett shrunk and grew over the first 15 laps of the race as the field took half way. Brent Marks worked his way into the top five on lap 18 as he drove by Stutts.

By lap 20, Wolfe was into the thicker lap traffic and Hodnett began to cut into what was almost a three second lead. Only three laps later Hodnett was within a second of the race leader and continuing to close in.

Wolfe worked into the top ten running cars putting cars a lap down at a rapid pace as the race wound down. As the cars got more competitive going a lap down Hodnett chose his spot to attack.

Hodnett pulled within ten car lengths of Wolfe with the two to go sign displayed, but never got close enough to seriously challenge Wolfe as he drove to his second National Open win in record-setting time.

"We were good all night long," said Wolfe in victory lane. "You know you had a good car when you're lapping that far into the field. Danny (Dietrich) has two wins here this season and we were catching him to lap at the end."

Wolfe's first win of the season at the Super Speedway of Dirt Track Racing came on an $8,000 pay day. Hodnett, Smith, Marks, and Heimbach were the top five finishers. Doug Esh was sixth followed by TJ Stutts, Aaron Ott, Jason Shultz, and Danny Dietrich.

Heat races for the 22 car field were won by Dietrich, Marks, and Stutts.

It's not often that a winner in the Jeff's Auto Body and Recycling Center Late Models comes from outside the top ten. Dylan Yoder did just that in the final race of the 2016 season. Yoder came from the 13th starting spot to claim the victory.

Mike Lupfer led the race early on before being passed by Donnie Schick. Schick led until a lap five restart when Andy Haus went by. Haus set the pace on the outside of the race track for the next ten laps. The outside line proved to be tricky when Haus made contact with the third turn wall allowing Lupfer, Kyle Hardy, and a hard charging Yoder to move to his rear bumper.

A caution flag came out for a Kyle Rhoads tire blow out to stop the battle right as Yoder pulled even with the race leader after passing Lupfer for second the corner before.

On the restart, Haus slide high and that allowed Yoder to bolt into the race lead for good. Any doubt about whether or not Yoder had anything left to offer the front runners after charging through the field was gone as Yoder pulled away to the win.

MITTEN DOMINATES LAWRENCE CHEVOLET KEYSTONE 50 FOR SUPER SPORTSMAN;

Montgomery, Geeseman only lead last lap in winning Central PA Legends, street stock thrillers

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 9/17/2016 – Russ Mitten raced to his biggest payday of the year in Saturday night’s Lawrence Chevrolet Keystone 50 for super sportsman at Lincoln Speedway.

The Newville veteran started on the outside of the front row and led every lap of the extra-distance race, picking up all the lap money and $100 bonus for the leading the most laps for a total payday of $3,190 in scoring his fifth career win in the Pigeon Hills.

“I don’t know. I had a game plan when we went on the race track, and that was to run the cushion no matter what unless we got into lapped cars, which I did heavily,” said Mitten in victory lane, “I about crashed a couple of times behind them, but just trying to be as fast as you can and be cautious at the same time is tough to do.”

“I knew Frank was back there,” continued Mitten, “On the fuel stop, the guys asked if I wanted to make any changes. I said not to touch it…just put fuel in it. The car’s good, I could maneuver through traffic decent, and I didn’t want to mess it up. But when they put fuel in it, it really changed the car for about five or six laps. The car got tight on me, but as soon as the fuel burned off it came back around and got going good again. That last caution, I was sweating bullets because I knew Frank was back there. Anyone who follows sportman racing knows that Frank’s a killer and restarts, so I knew I had to hit my marks perfect on the restarts. I pretty much figured once I got through turns one and two and didn’t see anyone, I was going to be okay because three and four were my better turns.”

Mitten had nearly a two-second lead when heavy lapped traffic allowed all-time Lincoln super sportsman winner Frankie Herr to close in. But a caution with three laps to go gave Mitten a clear track, and he drove away to a 1.09 second win.

Herr settled for second, with fast time timer and fourth-starting Kenny Edkin third. Completing the top five were Doug Dodson and 11th-starting Rich Eichelberger. Rounding out the top ten were 15th-starting Mike Enders, 14th-starting Tony Jackson, Steve Fannasy, Timmie Barrick, and 18th-starting Devin Beidel.

Todd Leonard received the $100 hard charger bonus after starting 23rd and finishing 12th. Jay Fannasy received the hard luck award when he broke and dropped from the field while running fifth with three laps to go.

Fast time in time trials over the 28-car Super Sportsman field was set by Edkin with a 1-lap time of 15.314-seconds (88.155 MPH). Qualifying races were won by Scott Dellinger (who spun on the front stretch of lap five and dropped out) and Jackson.

Both support division features saw the winners lead only the final lap after racing-winning passes exiting turn four.

York’s Lucas Montgomery went from third to first when race leaders Harlon Leppo and Bob Stough got together in the final turns to the checkered. It was Montgomery’s fifth career Lincoln win. Leppo recovered to finish second, with Stough (who had started 11th) dropping to fifth. Crossing third and fourth were early race leader Jeff Herbst and Chad Earnst.

Heats for the 30 Central PA were won by Tony Mracovich, Stough, and Reed Saloney (who came from 10th starting spot and dropped from the field while leading on lap 13), with Greg Burd winning the consolation.

Jason Geeseman drove under Ryan Smith to win the 20-lap street stock feature by a half-carlength. Smith, who started fourth, took the lead from Sean Todd on lap five and led going into the final turns. He settled for second, with Jimmy Combs, Greg Diehl, and Todd completing the top five.

Heats for the 24 Street Stocks were won by Tyler Stump, Diehl, and Kyle Martin, who was involved in a three-car front stretch crash, ending his night, on lap five of the feature.

Next Saturday night, September 24th, at 7:30 PM, Lincoln Speedway will host the THIRD ANNUAL “DIRT CLASSIC” for 410 Sprints ($20,000 to win). Pit gates will open at 4 PM, admission for advance ticket holders 4:15 PM, and then regular admission at 4:30 PM. Time trials get underway at 7:30 PM.

Nouse Claims Williams Grove 358 Sprint Championship Race, Ryan Smith Wires For First Grove Victory Of Career

9/16/16

Mechanicsburg – Kevin Nouse scored the 358 sprint car championship event at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, taking $2,500 for the lucrative victory, his second of the year at the track and 16th overall of his career.

In the 25-lap 410 sprint car main, it was Ryan Smith who scored for the first time ever in his career at Williams Grove Speedway, leading all 25 circuits to pick up the $3,600 victory.

Jared Esh took the lead from the pole of the 25-lap 358 sprint championship race with Phil Walter and Eric Parker trailing early while Nouse worked from the 12th starting spot.

Parker bolted around Walter for second on the ninth lap and tried to run down the leader as traffic entered the picture but Nouse was quickly on the scene and was up to third with 11 laps completed.

Nouse overtook Parker for the second spot with nine laps to go and then moments later drove into the lead with eight laps left.

Shortly after being scored the leader, the races first caution flag unfurled, giving Esh and Parker new life.

However the restart saw Nouse pull away when action resumed as he did again on a final restart with a lap to go.

After starting 15th, Adrian Shaffer made his way up to fourth before the finish but failed to challenge for a podium finish.

Phil Walter ended the race in fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Tyler Esh, Chandler Leiby, Chris Arnold, Jordan Givler and Brent Shearer.

Heats went to Walter, Nouse and Arnold.

Nouse was the Wee Bee Audio and Video Hard Charger.

Ryan Smith started fourth in the 410 sprint main and made a big move on the initial start to take over the lead on the first lap from TJ Stutts, who started second.

Brent Marks began the race in third and took second on the second lap as Smith held the lead.

Lap after lap, Marks tried to gain on the leader but Smith was flawless on the slick surface, running the middle of the track to perfection.

Smith entered the rear of the field on the ninth lap with Marks in tow but even in traffic Smith was able to maintain his advantage over Marks.

A lone restart on the 12th lap gave Marks a clear shot at the lead but Smith was again flawless through the middle of the first and second turns to pull away on the backchute while Marks slid sideways after trying to pull a flyer for control.

After starting eighth, Alan Krimes took third from Stutts on the 12th lap and got by Marks for second with six laps to go.

Krimes then consistently ran down Smith over the final laps to have in within striking distance amid traffic at the finish, crossing the line .625 seconds behind as runner up.

Marks was third followed by Stutts and Austin Hogue.

Sixth through 10th went to Lucas Wolfe, Cory Haas, Freddie Rahmer, Danny Dietrich and Doug Esh.

Heats went to Brian Montieth, Nicole Bower and Esh with Matt Campbell taking the consolation race.

The Nace Memorial National Open will be a 30-lap tribute race paying $8,000 to win and $600 to start out of the $32,000 purse. In an effort to avoid having to take a fuel stop, the race’s distance was changed from 35 to 30 laps.

The Fast Tees Fast Time Award will pay $300. Time trials, heat races, and a B-main will be the qualifying format.

The purse for this year’s race was also restructured to pay more money through the starting field, including an increase to $600 to start the main event. For the fans, speedway management reduced adult general admission to $25 and student admission to $10 for the Nace Memorial National Open.

Joining the 410 sprint cars on the Sept. 17 racing card will be the super late models in a 25-lap main event paying $2,000 to win. Track gates will open at 5 p.m. and qualifying will start at 7 p.m. The rain date, if needed, will be Sunday, Sept. 18, at 6 p.m.

For the seventh straight year, the 410 Open will honor the life and racing career of Nace, the track’s only five-time sprint car champion who died in November 2009 following a seven-year battle with cancer.

In last year’s race, Danny Dietrich scored his first ever sprint car victory at the famed half-mile oval. Since then, Dietrich has won two more races at the track this season in the April All Star Circuit of Champions Ray Tilley Classic and in the July Jan Opperman/PA Speedweek Finale.

Fred Rahmer, of Salfordville, is the track’s only five-time winner of the Open with victories in 1995, 1996, 1997, 1999, and 2000. Todd Shaffer of Millerstown is the other driver on the Open career win list with four championships in 1993, 1994, 2001, and 2008.

In 2014, Greg Hodnett of Spring Grove became the third driver to win the Open four times. Hodnett’s other Open victories came in 1998, 2004, and 2007.

In 2013, Pat Cannon of Etters joined the late Maynard Yingst of Linglestown and Rahmer as only the third driver to win three consecutive National Opens. Cannon also won in 2012 and 2011. Yingst’s wins in the Open occurred in 1983, 1984, and 1985.

Other past repeat winners include Lance Dewease of Fayetteville (2002, 2009, 2010) and Don Kreitz Jr. of Sinking Spring (1986 and 1992).

Single-time winners of the Open include Dave Blaney of Cortland, Ohio (1987); Keith Kauffman of Mifflintown (1988); Doug Wolfgang of Sioux Falls, S.D. (1989); Sammy Swindell of Bartlett, Tenn. (1990); Johnny Mackison Jr. of York (1991); Stevie Smith of Broken Arrow, Okla. (2003); Lucas Wolfe of Mechanicsburg (2005); and Chad Layton of Harrisburg (2006).

The National Open will mark the fourth and final appearance of the season by the 410 sprint cars at Selinsgrove Speedway. In addition to Deitrich’s two wins this year, Hodnett was the winner of a special Friday night sprint car races in June.

Lance Dewease Marches To Record Fifth Port Royal Tuscarora 50 Win

Fayetteville driver gets fifth win for as many car owners, triumphs over All Stars

Devin Hart wins econo late model title by five points over Krape

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

9/10/16

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Lance Dewease of Fayetteville marched to the front to record a historic, milestone victory at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night, becoming the first ever five-time winner of the prestigious Tuscarora 50 for sprint cars while also recording his 100th career checkered flag at the historic oval.

Dewease started eighth in the stellar sprint car field sanctioned by the All Star Circuit of Champions and took the lead on the 12th circuit when leader Greg Hodnett broke the rear on his machine.

Both drivers were vying to make history by becoming the first ever five-time Tuscarora 50 champion.

A previous Tuscarora 50 winner in 1994 for Walt Dyer, in 2001 for Joe Harz, in 2002 for Al Hamilton and in 2006 for Pete Postupack, Dewease’s fifth win in the event came for his fifth different Tuscarora champion car owner in the form of Don Kreitz Jr., who himself owns three career event wins as a driver.

In the 22-lap econo late model main, Tim Krape of Bellefonte won the final point race of the season while Port Royal’s Devin Hart finished second and scored the 2016 track title by just five points over Krape.

In the sprint car division, Lancaster’s Doug Esh secured the 2016 crown as well, his first at Port Royal Speedway.

Greg Hodnett drew the pole for the start of the 49th annual running of the Tuscarora 50 flanked by TJ Stutts.

And Hodnett took control over third starter Dale Blaney and Sheldon Haudenschild when action began.

The races first caution flag unfurled with eight laps complete and the top three unchanged while Dewease restarted sixth.

And the next four laps found Dewease simply pouring on the power as he darted by the cars in front of him with ease, up to fifth on lap nine and up to third on lap 10.

On the next lap, Dewease blasted by Dale Blaney to be sitting in second and closing on leader Hodnett when Hodnett puffed blue smoke out of his car on the backstretch and coasted to a stop as Dewease drove by as the new leader with 12 away.

But the caution unfurled due to debris from Hodnett’s busted rear end, regrouping the field with 13 laps to go before the mandatory stoppage on lap 25.

The next driver to turn up the wick was 10th starter and Friday night winner Stevie Smith as the Broken Arrow, Oklahoma driver took fifth on the restart.

He got by Cap Henry for fourth on the 14th tour and then worked on Haudenschild and Blaney during the final stages of the first half to muscle into second, far behind Dewease with five laps to go until the break.

Blaney, Haudenschild and Henry chased the lead duo on the restart.

Henry surprised many by racing with Blaney for third when action resumed but all eyes were on Smith as he attempted to pass Dewease for the lead.

For the first several laps after the restart, Smith stayed within striking distance as Dewease struggled to navigate the first and second turns but turns three and four were his savior as his mount traversed the low side of those turns perfectly, allowing him to make up the ground he lost to Smith at the other end of the track on every circuit.

A final caution with 19 laps to go for a flat right rear tire on Aaron Ott’s racer set up a final restart with 13th starter Lucas Wolfe now up to fifth.

Again Smith stayed close to Dewease for the next several laps but after numerous back to back laps, Dewease’s advantage to grow and grow as he checked out over the final 15 laps to record the victory by nearly eight seconds over the rest of the field.

Dale Blaney rode home third followed by an impressive run by Cap Henry and Danny Dietrich, who started the race ninth.

Sixth through 10th went to Wolfe, Haudenschild, defending event winner Brent Marks, Blane Heimbach and Chad Kemenah.

Heats for the 41 cars went to Heimbach, Blaney, Haudenschild and Stutts with Mike Wagner scoring the B Main.

Fast time was set by Danny Dietrich with a lap of 16.479 seconds.

Dewease took home $12, 975 for the victory including lap money.

“This feels great. It’s an honor to do it for these guys,” Dewease said on the Port Royal Speedway victory lane stage.

“I think I may have won this race with five different car owners, too, so that makes it pretty special. I wanted this one so bad all year for these guys. We’ve been really good everywhere we’ve went. We had a really good racecar last night, but had some mechanical problems that were nobody’s fault. I’m having a lot of fun driving for this race team. We are all really enjoying this limited schedule. We savor every one of these things.”

“That first 25 laps, I didn’t run that hard,” Dewease explained.

“I knew we could go pretty soft on tires because I’m not that hard on tires. We came in during that red and my guys said my tires were still really good. So, I knew I could get going then. I just wanted to get inside the top-four before the break. I just found a line and was able to reel those guys in. You have to be there in the end in this deal. That’s what it’s all about. ”

Hart started second in the 22-lap econo late model main to record the title and he finished there with Krape taking the win.

Andrew Yoder rode home third followed by Harold Ranck Jr., and Ryan Walls.

Twin heats went to Krape and Hart.

SHEARER WINS CAREER FIRST, LEIBY CLAIMS TRACK TITLE IN LINCOLN “358” SPRINTS;

Cam Zeigler dominates 358 late models; Hanson wins for the second time this season in PASS/IMCA sprints

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 9/10/2016 – The youth movement continued in the final points race of the season for “”358” sprint cars at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

Rookie Brent Shearer of Manheim became the sixth different first-time winner in the 20-lap feature event. Shearer, who came from 19th to fourth a week ago, started fourth and finished the job this week, holding off two-time track champ Jeff Rohrbaugh at the end.

It was not without drama, as front row starter Tyler Walton grabbed the lead from polesitter Ashley Cappetta and led the first 14 laps. Shearer took the lead from Walton at the line to complete lap 15, and Walton drove up over Shearer’s right rear entering turn one. Walton flipped, and Shearer drove out of a 360 spin and never stopped, giving him the lead for the restart with five laps to go.

The final five laps saw eighth-starting Rohrbaugh charge into the runner-up spot, but he could never catch Shearer.

Rohrbaugh settled for second, with 10th-starting Jeff Halligan third, 11th-starting Matt Campbell fourth, and Matt Findley fifth. Completing the top ten were Adrian Shaffer, Chris Arnold, Chandler Leiby, Cody Fletcher, and C.J. Tracey.

Leiby’s eight-place finish clinched the 2016 Keiser Aluminum Wheels 358 sprint car championship for the Carlisle teenager who just graduated from high school a few months ago. Campbell finished second in season points for the second straight year, with Shaffer a close third. Both drivers entered the evening trailing Leiby by just 55 points.

Heats for the 30 358 Sprints were won by Halligan, Arnold, and Campbell, with Mike Bittinger winning the consolation.

Cam Zeigler took advantage of a crash involving the front row at the outset, and drove the Walls family #98W away to a 5.87-second win over Brad Shank in the 20-lap “358” late model feature event.

Front row starters Travis Mease and Randy Stoudt smacked together in turn two of lap one, ending both of their nights. Precise Racing Products point series leader Sam Gallagher drove into the pits during the caution to change a flat tire, but then dropped out later in the event.

Zeigler and Shank assumed the front row for the complete restart, and ran first and second the entire way.

Third through fifth were Shaun Jones, Jake Jones, and Randy Christine, Jr., who came from 12th starting spot.

Heats for the 20 358 Late Models were won by Shank and Zeigler.

Jeremi Hanson started on the pole and led all 20 non-stop laps for his second consecutive Lincoln win in the PASS/IMCA 305 sprint car feature. His 20-lap time was 5:42.18, good enough to hold off a closing 11th-starting John Barnett at the finish. Third through fifth were Tyler Reeser, Colby Dice, and Rick Stief.

Heats for the 29 PASS/IMCA (305) Sprints were won by Drew Ritchey, Reeser, and Ron Aurand, with Kyle Ganoe winning the consolation.

Next Saturday night, September 17th, at 7:30 PM, Lincoln Speedway will host the first-ever LAWRENCE CHEVROLET SPORTSMAN KEYSTONE 50 for the Super Sportsman. Rounding out the show will be the Central PA Legends and Street Stocks. Gates will open at 5:30 PM.

GROSSO AND STRADA CLAIM SPORTSMAN AND SPRINT VICTORIES AT GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY IN FRIDAY NIGHT RACING ACTION

BECHTELSVILLE, PA SEPTEMBER 10, 2016 . . . Rising young racing talent Brandon Grosso hung on for an exciting Sportsman victory, Friday night at Grandview Speedway, while Eddie Strada blew the doors off the competition to take home the dominating win in the TSRS 305 Sprint Car main event, as part of the third annual Night Before the Freedom 76’er events at the high-banked third-mile dirt track in Bechtelsville, PA. For both it was their first career victory at the track.

With his win Friday night, Grosso now has 16 victories in 2016 at five different tracks, as he enjoys a tremendous campaign.

With the displaying of the green in the annual Sportsman 38’er, pole sitter B.J. Joly vaulted out immediately into the lead over Mike Koffel. On Lap 2, Brad Arnold, who started third, moved into second spot and Grosso, who picked fifth to start in the prerace draw, was fourth. After three circuits it was Joly in front of Arnold and Grosso as the top three.

Exiting Turn 4 on the high outside on Lap 5 it was Arnold going around Joly to become the new race leader. Two tours later Grosso advanced into the runner-up role.

A caution on Lap 12 regrouped the field after Todd Huffman spun in Turn 4 all alone.

Green again and it was Grosso surging ahead off Turn 2 running on the high outside, dropping Arnold to second, with Grandview 2016 Sportsman track Champion Jordan Henn, who started in twelfth, now up to third. Craig Whitmoyer of Hamburg, PA was running a solid fourth. Another yellow after 15-laps for a spinning Brad Roberts slowed things.

“I had to chase down that 830 car (Arnold) for a while to get out in front,” explained Grosso, 16, of Montgomery, N.J. “The track was great, though. You could run up on top or low down on the bottom and it produced great racing all-around tonight.”

The Lap 16 restart showed Grosso again out in front over Henn of Kutztown, PA and Whitmoyer, with Arnold now falling back into fourth-place. By Lap 21, Grosso started to stretch out his advantage, as he got into lapped traffic. The lapped traffic actually allowed Henn to start to close in again by Lap 30.

With two to go, Grosso was caught up in heavy traffic, with Henn and Whitmoyer right on his tailpipe.

The final go-round had a thrilling three-car battle to the checkered, with Whitmoyer ducking underneath Henn to steal second. Whitmoyer actually inched in front of Grosso at one point, but Grosso won the race to the flagstand over Whitmoyer, Henn, Arnold and Jim Housworth.

“I didn’t know which way to go those final 5-laps,” revealed Grosso, a third generation racer. “The lapped cars seemed to be all over there at the end and it made us really have to work hard to win this one tonight. I got stuck, there, for a while behind the lapped cars and it sure made it exciting at the end.”

Grosso took home $1,500 for his triumph and earned the Dan’s Deli Halfway Hoagie award as the race leader at the crossed flags.

Heat winners included Grosso, Roberts, Mike Lisowski and Huffman. The consolation races were won by Ryan Lilick and Brian Papiez.

The 25-lap TSRS 305 Sprint Cars feature showed Joe Kay jumping out in front from the pole over Scott Frack and Bryant Davis. A red on Lap 3 stopped the event after Chris Allen rolled it over in Turn 4.

With the restart it was Kay again on top over Frack and Scott Lutz, with Davis now fourth. On Lap 5 Davis advanced into third. By Lap 8 Davis was on the move taking second spot and on Lap 10 Davis roared by Kay to become the new race leader.

Strada started from eighth spot and was also advancing into third-place with 10 circuits in the books. Lap 11 saw Strada, a third generation racer, climb to second, as he slipped by Kay and on Lap 12 it was Strada using the high outside lane to race around Davis and become the new leader, as the yellow was waved for Davis spinning out all alone in Turn 4.

“I saw I had a shot going for the lead, there, and the car just stuck on the top,” explained Strada, 19, of Lake Ariel, PA. “First I thought that 15 car (Davis) was going to slide up and pull a slide job on me, but I hit the gas and the car just got away. Later, once I came around under yellow, I saw he was up near the wall and he had just spun out.”

With the new green Strada was off to the races, as he quickly advanced to a full straight-away lead by Lap 16. Three tours later Strada was a full straight-away plus out in front and by Lap 22 he had a full half-lap advantage over the competition. Strada easily won his first career TSRS 305 Sprint Car main over Lutz, Mike Haggenbottom, Tim Tanner Jr. and Tommy Carberry.

Heat races were won by Allen, Haggenbottom and Strada. No consolation was needed.

“Once I got out in front I thought I’d just hit the gas and run the hell out of it,” commented Strada. “I had a shot at racing another race tonight and winning a championship, but I thought coming to run at Grandview Speedway and winning here would mean a lot more.”

Bandit Smith Steals Port Royal All Star Night Before The 50

Jeremy Miller wins Moon Shine Camo Series finale, Jeff Rine Claims Series Title

9/9/16

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Stevie Smith took advantage of the chances he was given on Friday night to score victory in the All Star Circuit of Champions Night Before the Tuscarora 50 at Port Royal Speedway, taking $5,000 for the win, his third in the history of the event.

Smith previously took wins in The Night Before the 50 in 2010 and in 2014.

In the 25-lap Rt. 35 Moon Shine Camo Dirt Late Model Challenge Series finale, Jeremy Miller of Gettysburg scored the $2,000 payday while Danville’s Jeff Rine walked away with the inaugural series championship title and Hamburg’s Andy Haus wrapped up the 2016 Port Royal track title.

Greg Hodnett earned the pole for the 30-lap Night Before the 50 feature event and took the lead on the first lap over Brock Zearfoss an sixth starter Lance Dewease.

Dewease drove by Zearfoss on the third lap, showing strength early as Hodnett began running down the rear of the field.

The leader entered the backmarkers on the seventh circuit and at the same time Dewease had caught him for control.

Running the low side of the speedway, Dewease drove into the lead on the ninth lap and began jetting away, leaving the rest of the field to scrap for second.

And then just as suddenly as he took control and was already out to a near one second advantage, he slowed to a stop on the backchute with 20 laps to go, handing control back to Hodnett with third starter Stevie Smith now in second.

Hodnett was only able to hold Smith off for one lap after action resumed as the Oklahoma driver blasted the top to take control on the backstretch on the 12th circuit.

Smith then was able to creep just far enough ahead to keep Hodnett from making any bids for control however he failed to drive away from the field.

With six laps to go, the pace was slowed when Danny Holtgraver and Brent Marks connected in the first corner however the final restart failed to produce a contest for the lead as Smith again kept Hodnett just far enough behind to prevent a stab for the lead.

Seventh starter Lucas Wolfe ended a race long battle with Dale Blaney for third with the spot, followed by Blaney and Danny Dietrich.

Sixth through 10th went to Dave Blaney, Zearfoss, Aaron Ott, Sheldon Haudenschild and Doug Esh.

Heats went to Haudenschild, Wolfe, Zearfoss and Dave Blaney. Hodnett won the dash and Mike Wagner took the B Main.

Wolfe set fast time over the 41-car field with a lap of 16.202 seconds.

Trent Brenneman started second in the 25-lap late model main and drove into control when the green flag unfurled, chased early by Hayes Mattern.

Fourth starter Kyle Hardy took the second spot away on the sixth lap and began to challenge Brenneman for control with eight laps in the book.

Hardy was able to get alongside Brenneman and nose into the lead at times using the outside lane but a smooth Brenneman on the low side maintained his composure to thwart the bids and indeed drive out to a lead of over two seconds as Jeremy Miller took second from Hardy with 10 laps to go.

But Brenneman’s 2.3-second lead was erased with seven laps to go thanks to a final caution flag and that’s when Miller took his shot.

Using the outside lane, Miller applied heavy pressure for control when action resumed and he made it back to the stripe to be scored the leader with six laps to go.

Brenneman attempted a comeback for the win but Miller was too tough to be caught, taking his second career victory at the oval.

Brenneman was second followed by Jeff Miller, Matt Cosner and Mike Lupfer.

Sixth through 10th went to Hayes Mattern, Rick Singleton, Jeff Rine, Andy Haus and Tim Smith Jr.

Heats for the 33 cars went to Haus, Justin Kann, Rine and Cosner. Singleton took the consolation race.

Andy Haus scored the track title with his run while also finishing second in the Moon Shine Camo Dirt Late Model Challenge Series.

Jeff Rine took home the inaugural series title over Haus with Lupfer finishing third in the standings followed by Mattern, Andrew Yoder, Chad Hollenbeck, Danny Snyder, Dave Brouse Jr., Coleby Frye and Tim Wilson.

Friday, September 9, 2016 Trail-Way Speedway Hanover, PA

UPCOMING EVENTS: Sat., September 10, 2016 – AMA Motorcycle Short Track (Gates open at 3:00 p.m., Heats at 6:00 p.m.) Sat., September 24, 2016 – 27th Annual Kevin Gobrecht Memorial, 270 & 600 Micro Sprints, Legends (Gates open at 4:00 p.m., Heats at 6:00 p.m.) Sat., October 1, 2016 – 18th Annual Thunder on the Farm, 358 Late Models, Street Stocks, Limited Stocks (Gates open at 4:00 p.m., Heats at 6:00 p.m.)

BITTINGER HOLDS OFF TRACK CHAMP HOLBROOK FOR “358” TRAIL-WAY SPRINT WIN; ONE MYERS WINS RACE, ANOTHER MYERS WINS TITLE IN 270CC MICROS; GOODWIN WINS FEATURE & TITLE IN STREET STOCKS; LIMITED STOCK FEATURE FALLS TO RAIN, WITH WAGAMAN DECLARED TRACK CHAMP

HANOVER, PA (9/9/2016) – After two unsuccessful attempts to start the race, Abbottstown’s Mike Bittinger outran polesitter Wyatt Hinkle to the first turn and led every lap of the non-stop 25-lap feature for 358 sprint cars at Trail-Way Speedway Friday night.

“I’m an old man,” said Bittinger upon exiting his Apple Automotive/Boulder Pools #12 in victory lane, “They really made me feel old in the heat and knocked me all around.”

“Starting position helped tonight,” added Bittinger, “I’ve been down on myself that past few months, and tonight was a great way to end the year. I started paying attention to the scoreboard there toward the end. I wasn’t going full-bore until the 77 stuck his nose under me, and decided I’d step it up and give it everything I had.”

Bittinger’s second win of the year came one week after picking up the hard luck bonus in the Lincoln/Trail-Way two night “Shootout.” The non-stop 25-lap time was six minutes, 10.06 seconds.

David Holbrook’s second-place finish was good enough to lock up the 2016 Trail-Way track title.

“We came up short tonight, and that was driver error,” said Holbrook during a brief interview in victory lane, “I want to thank (car owner) Mike Parris and the crew for a great job this season. We’ll be back next year and be better than ever.”

Holbrook started third and drove around Hinkle for the runner-up spot on lap 14. Fourth-starting caught Hinkle for third on lap 14 and finished there, with TW rookie of-the-year Tyler Walton and Hinkle rounding out the top five. Sixth through ninth were Zach Euculano, Dave Thrush, Cody Fletcher, and hard charger Shane Yost, who started 14th. Dan Richcreek was a DNF but credited with tenth.

One of the two unsuccessful attempts to start the race was marred by a five-car crash that involved heat winners Cody Fletcher and Dwight Leppo, Seth Kearchner, Randy Whisler, and Brody Treaster. The cars of Kearchner and Leppo flipped, and both driver were uninjured but done for the night. The other three were able to continue.

2015 track champ Cory Myers raced to his first win of the year in the 20-lap Mason-Dixon 270cc micro-sprint feature. He held of the race-long challenges of Bill Laughman for the win, with Chad Myers, Brian Marriott, and Jim Still rounding out the top five.

Chad’s third-place finish secured the 2016 track title.

The purse for this year’s race was restructured to pay more money through the starting field, including an increase to $600 to start the main event. For the fans, speedway management reduced adult general admission to $25 and student admission to $10 for the Nace Memorial National Open.

Danny Dietrich Scores Second Port Royal Labor Day Classic

9/5/16

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Danny Dietrich of Gettysburg won the 65th annual Labor Day Classic for sprint cars on Monday afternoon at Port Royal Speedway, taking his second victory in the oval event after taking his first in 2014.

Ironically, both wins came aboard a replica Weikert’s Livestock No. 29 sprint car are his only career victories at the track.

Monday’s win was worth $4,000.

Elsewhere, Ryan Peer won the 15-lap four cylinder main event while Bob Stough took the Central Pa Legends feature.

Port Royal driver Dylan Cisney had the pole for the 25-lap Labor Day Classic for sprints and took the lead on the first lap ahead of Dietrich and defending event winner Brent Marks.

Marks got by Dietrich for second on the second tour and quickly ran down Cisney to make a pass for the lead with four away.

Once in front, Marks began driving away from the field, jetting around the first and second turns using a narrowing topside moisture strip that got a bit too narrow on the 10th tour when he hopped up over it and slammed the outside turn two wall.

That misfortune sidelined him for the rest of the event and handed the lead to Dietrich with Cisney now second and ninth starter Greg Hodnett up to third.

Hodnett got around Cisney for second with 11 laps to go but had to run down Dietrich who had built up over a straightaway lead by that point.

But steadily Hodnett did cut away the advantage to be caught up with the leader with a lap to go.

However a final lap clash never materialized as Dietrich stayed just far enough out of reach to prevent a last ditch, final turn effort by Hodnett to steal the win.

The victory was Dietrich’s seventh overall this season in area action.

Point leader Doug Esh, who started 12th ended up a challenging third followed by Ryan Smith and Brock Zearfoss.

Sixth through 10th went to Lucas Wolfe, Aaron Ott, Cisney, TJ Stutts and Joey Hershey.

Heats went to Marks, Dietrich and Smith.

Some 38 four cylinder pure stocks entered competition and 36 of them started the 15-lap feature with Ryan Peer, who started 37th, taking the lead with four laps to go to seal the win.

Second went to Chris Anderson followed by Tom Brady, Justin Williamson and Darren Howsare.

Heats went to Robert Wellman, Anderson and Jeff Foster.

Bob Stough won the legends feature over Harold Leppo and Chad Earnst.

Demolition derby wins went to Alex Keaton and John Miller.

FROM WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY
SEPTEMBER 4, 2016
STEVIE SMITH WINS BILLY KIMMEL MEMORIAL AT WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY
Frankie Herr Wins 28th Career Super Sportsman Feature at WG.
MECHANICSBURG, PA – Stevie Smith doesn’t visit Williams Grove Speedway too often for regular handicap shows, but he was in the field Sunday night for the Billy Kimmel Memorial and he made the most of it by picking up the $4,300 win in Fred Rahmer’s No. 51.
“It has been tough this year,” said Smith. “We just haven’t been able to get out here (victory lane). It feels good to get back to victory lane. Fred is a great car owner. It’s nice to be a part of this.”
Rodney Westhafer –who had his sprinter painted like the Kimmel No. 47 – started on the pole and drove into the lead to start the 25-lap main event over Cory Haas, who slid to second starting spot after Eric Tomecek failed to start.
Westhafer reached lapped traffic with seven laps completed and a 1.198 second lead. He slipped a little on the cushion in turn two allowing Haas to close. Westhafer and Haas would get by the lapped car and Haas challenged for the lead once again.
Smith was originally scheduled to start eighth, but moved up to sixth. He’d take third from Ryan Smith just before the first caution flag of the event on lap 11 for a slowing Austin Burke in turn four.
Westhafer pulled away as Smith worked Haas for second. An inside move off turn two got Smith the spot on lap 13. He was 1.701 seconds behind.
He slowly gained on the leader, but when Westhafer tried to duck low on a lapped car, Smith closed dramatically.
Westhafer went low off turn two to lap Nicole Bower as Smith worked the top groove. The next time through the turns, Smith went low and drove by off the corner to take the lead with three laps to go.
“When you’re running second or third, you just go the opposite direction or take a chance, but when you’re leading you’re trying to hold onto the lead and sometimes that’s a disadvantage,” said Smith. “The caution came out and bunched us first three up. I had just passed two in the same corner. It was a good night tonight.”
Westhafer tried to get under a lapped car in turn three and lost control spinning across the track collecting fourth running Ryan Smith and fifth running Brock Zearfoss with three laps to go. Nobody was hurt.
Smith controlled the restart although Haas stayed with him. As they headed for the checkers, the yellow flag flew instead for Zearfoss who spun in turn two.
An uneventful final lap saw Smith take the win over Haas, Hodnett, Lincoln track champion Alan Krimes and Doug Esh. Lucas Wolfe, Brian Montieth, Danny Dietrich, Freddie Rahmer and Tim Glatfelter rounded out the top 10.
Dietrich, Hodnett and Montieth won the sprint car heats.
In the companion 20-lap super sportsman feature, it was Kenny Edkin starting on the pole grabbing the early race lead. Nine time track champion Frankie Herr moved into second with 10 laps to go. Herr would pass Edkin on the frontstretch with six laps to go. He would go on to pick up his 28th career super sportsman win at the Grove.
Edkin, Scott Dellinger, Scott Geesey and Jay Fannasy completed the top five. Paul Miller, Russ Mitten, Rich Eichelberger, Davey Walsh and Steve Fannasy rounded out the top 10.
Herr, Dellinger and Geesey won the super sportsman heats.
Sprint Car Feature (25 laps): 1. Stevie Smith. 2. Cory Haas. 3. Greg Hodnett. 4. Alan Krimes. 5. Doug Esh. 6. Lucas Wolfe. 7. Brian Montieth. 8. Danny Dietrich. 9. Freddie Rahmer. 10.

KEN DUKE SCORES IN SUSQUEHANNA 305 SPRINTS

Third win for Randy Christine, Jr. in LM while Mike Potts Gets Second Street Stock Win

By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway YORK HAVEN, PA 9/3/16

Ken Duke appeared to be headed for a runner-up finish in Saturday night’s 25-lap PASS/IMCA 305 Sprint car event at Susquehanna Speedway.

Duke, of Selinsgrove, PA had led laps six through 16 but gave way to multi-time winner Tyler Reeser on the 17th lap and was riding in the runner-up spot when Reeser made contact while putting a slower car a lap down and spun out.

This put Duke back out front and he was able to keep the field at bay over the final three circuits to score his first win of the season at Susquehanna.

Jay Krout led the first four laps before blowing a tire and hitting the wall which put Dave Grube out front. Grube led only lap five before fourth-starting Duke took the lead.

Rick Stief came from his 11th starting spot to finish in the runner-up position trailed by 10th starting Johnny Martin, eighth-starting George Riden as Grube completed the top five.

Sixth through 10th were Randy Kaylor, Scott Ellerman, Stephanie Dodson, Greg Dobrosky and Colby Dice.

Donnie Hendershot, Stief and Kaylor won heats for the 26 305 Sprints pitside.

Mike Potts raced from his 10th starting spot and drove to his second win of the season in the 20-lap street stock feature.

LeRoy Long and Jim Palm led early before Potts arrived on the scene, taking control with eight laps down and never looking back in taking the win as he looks to capture the 2016 street stock title with a handful of races remaining.

Palm settled for second spot ahead of Eric Tripp, 14th starting Josh Bloom and 20th starter Randy Zechman taking the Hard Charger award.

Walt Lemmon, Ryan Smith, Scott Thunberg, Travis Horan and Chad Stine completed the top ten finishers.

Long, Chris Derr and Horan won heats for the 26 cars. Eddie Richards was the consolation winner.

Manchester, PA racer Randy Christine, Jr. dominated the 25-lap 358 Late Model feature as he visited victory lane for the third time this season.

Starting sixth, Christine used a lap six restart to take the top spot and drove away for the win and strengthened his track point lead.

Gene Knaub made a rare start and finished in the runner-up spot after starting 10th as Jake Jones took the third spot. Shaun Jones earned the Hard Charger award after climbing into the Donnie Broderick owned late model, starting 20th and driving up to fourth with Matt Murphy taking the fifth spot ahead of early race leader Dave Latsha, Sam Gallagher, Travis Mease, Steve Billet and Chase Billet.

Knaub and Jones won heats for the 20-car field.

Next up on the schedule, Saturday night September10 will be the marquee event of the season for Super Sportsman as the Credit Connection Auto Sales Gary Wolford Sportsman 100 takes center stage. The Sportsman 100 lineup will be set by time trials. Joining on the card will be the Road Warriors, Extreme Stocks and EMMR. It will also be Kids Night. Pits open at 2PM, Grandstands at 5PM and Racing at 7PM.

There will be another Test & Tune on Wednesday night, September 7 beginning at 6PM.

SHULTZ, MATTERN, SLANKER, HOFFMAN & BISSINGER CLOSE OUT SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY REGULAR SEASON POINTS RACING IN SATURDAY NIGHT FEATURES ONLY PROGRAM

WORLD OF OUTLAWS LATE MODEL SERIES SUNDAY NIGHT (SEPT. 4) IN NATIONAL OPEN 410 SPRINT CARS TO CLOSE OUT SEASON SEPT. 17 IN JIM NACE MEMORIAL NATIONAL OPEN

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – The 360 sprint cars, super late models, pro stocks, and roadrunners returned to Selinsgrove Speedway Saturday night to complete the Aug. 27 features that were postponed due to a power outage that affected area communities and the speedway.

The features completed the regular points racing season at the Snyder County oval for 2016 with Mark Smith of Sunbury clinching the 360 sprint car title, Jeff Rine of Danville the super late model championship, Brad Mitch of McClure winning the pro stock division crown, and Keith Bissinger of Orangeville wrapping up the roadrunner title.

Jason Shultz of Carlisle and Hayes Mattern of Beavertown were first-time winners this season at the track in the 25-lap 360 sprint car and super late model main events, respectively. Tommy Slanker and AJ Hoffman of Richfield split the wins in the 15-lap pro stock races, while Keith Bissinger closed out the roadrunner racing season with a victory in the 12-lap main event.

Selinsgrove Speedway will be right back in action Sunday night over the Labor Day holiday (Sept. 4) with the Craftsman World of Outlaw Late Model series in the Jeff's Auto Body and Recycling Center Late Model National Open. The track’s crown jewel event for the super Late Models will pay $8,000 to win and run 40 laps. The Limited Late Models will also be on the night’s racing card. Darrell Lanigan is the defending winner of the event and will look to extend his three-race winning streak in the Open.

Track gates open at 4p.m. for the Sept. 4 race. Adult admission to the grandstands will be $30, students (12-17) $10, and 11 and under are free. Pit Passes will be $40.

The 2016 season will close out Saturday, Sept. 17, with the Jim Nace Memorial 34th Annual National Open for the 410 Sprint Cars. The Late Models will join the 410 Sprinters in the season finale at 7p.m.

The Selinsgrove Speedway season awards banquet will be held November 5 at the Genetti Hotel in Williamsport. Tickets will go on sale in September.

Colby Womer jumped into the race lead at the drop of the green flag in the 25-lap Newville Family of Companies 360 Sprint Car main event while Jason Shultz charged from his eighth starting spot. Eric Tomecek was quickly into second and Shultz had moved to third on lap four. Tomecek and Shutlz made up a lot of ground on Womer as they approached lap traffic. Tomecek was the first to go by Womer followed quickly by Shultz, who on the next lap, would go by Tomecek to secure the top spot. A red flag on lap 18 was the first time the race lost green flag status as Ryan Kissinger flipped. He escaped injury. With the field bunched up for the restart, Tomecek used the restart to challenge Shultz a few times, but never more than in turns 3&4 on the final lap. Shultz got the run he needed to drive away to pick up his first win at the track in over two years. The checkered flag came over Tomecek, Derek Locke, Colby Womer, and Mike Walter. Michael Walter II recovered from an early race flat tire to finish in sixth. He raced across the line ahead of Eric Parker, Larry Kelleher, Darren Schott, and Charlie Anderson. Heat race wins on Aug. 27 went to Womer and Walter.

The Jeff's Auto Body and Recycling Center Super Late Model feature race was the last chance for teams to tune up leading into the Sunday’s World of Outlaw race. Hayes Mattern looked to kick the monkey off his back and take his first win of the season. Mattern jumped to the race lead from his front row starting spot. Bryan Bernheisel quickly looked to be the car to beat as he raced into the second position from his seventh starting spot. By lap 20 Bernheisel had pulled to the rear bumper of Mattern's number 9.

Soon the race for the lead was into lap traffic and Bernheisel really put the pressure on Mattern. With two to go Mattern made a bold move around two lap cars that left a gap between he and Bernheisel. Bernheisel was not done yet. He closed the lead up enough that in the final corner he could pull even with Mattern coming to the checkered flag. The two made contact out of turn four as the drag race to the finish began. Mattern held on by just .025 seconds for the win. Bernheisel earned a hard fought second place. Tony Adams closed out the podium finishers ahead of Jeff Rine and Steve Campbell. Matt Cochran, Luke Hoffner, Jim Yoder, Dave Zona, and Save Stamm made up the rest of the top ten finishers. Bernheisel and Cochran were the heat race winners on Aug. 27.

When the green flag came out in the A&A Auto Stores Pro Stock main event, Brad Mitch locked up the 2016 Pro Stock points' championship. Mitch looked to end the championship bid with a victory when he took the race lead away from Brandon Moser on lap 5. Tommy Slanker had other ideas of how the season would end. Slanker used an inside line to go by Mitch on a lap 11 restart and opened up a lead. A yellow flag came out again on laps 14 setting up a one lap shootout for the win. Slanker showed the way into turn three when Mitch threw a big slide job going for the win. Slanker was able to make the move back into the race lead to grab his second win of the season. Moser was actually able to sneak under Mitch for second while Mitch settled for the third spot. AJ Hoffman and Curtis Lawton were the rest of the drivers in the top five. Nate Herman finished sixth followed by Shaun Lawton, Lori Croop, Matt Wilson, and John Troxell. Hoffman and Stroup were winners in the heat races.

Keith Bissinger has claimed all but three wins this year in the A&A Auto Stores Roadrunners. Saturday night he hoped to celebrate his championship run with a victory. Bissinger led much of the feature event, but a late race yellow gave runner up Brian Johnson a chance to grab the race lead away. Bissinger admitted he was running lower on the speedway thinking the inside was faster, but Johnson was making the outside line work. Johnson pulled even with Bissinger going into turn one of the final lap and then crossed over the race leader coming to the checkered flag. At the flag stand the drag race finish went in favor of Bissinger. Johnson was second ahead of early race leader Will Brunson. Tom Underwood and Smith cope were fourth and fifth. Butch Shaffer, Cory Collier, Dustin Snook, Miranada Minium, and Jim Collier rounded out the top ten finishers.

In the night cap the Pro Stocks returned to complete a feature event from July 3rd. AJ Hoffman took the race lead early and dominated the 15 lap feature. The win moved him into sole possession of the number one slot of the Pro Stock win list. The win was Hoffman's 46th career victory. Matt Wilson followed him across the line along with Nate Stroup, Peanut Heintzelman, and Bill Conrad.

Greg Hodnett claims seventh oval sprints win, Ranck scores second econo late win

9/3/16

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Gregg Satterlee of Rochester Mills became the first repeat winner of the prestigious Butch Renninger Memorial at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night, taking home $4,290 (including lap money) for his 33-lap run in the UFO Late Model-sanctioned event.

Satterlee put on a sterling performance over the 38 cars in competition, fighting it out with Keith Barbara and Coelby Frye for the victory, which was also the second of the season for him at the speedway.

In the 25-lap 410 sprint car main, Greg Hodnett of Spring Grove claimed his seventh oval win of the season, using the bottom groove to perfection to get by Aaron Ott for the win.

The econo late model main went to Harold Ranck Jr. for his second checkers of the season while Pete Leister of Port Royal fulfilled a lifelong dream of becoming an oval titlist by wrapping up the xtreme stock championship with a win.

Satterlee started on the pole of the 33-lap Butch Renninger Memorial and was chased early by Nick Dickson.

The smooth running Satterlee entered the rear of the field with 10 laps down and by lap 12 found seventh starter Keith Barbara of South Park up to second and running down his advantage.

But Barbara’s job was made easier on the 15th tour when the races first caution flag unfurled for Mason Zeigler.

Satterlee chose the inside lane for the restart and had Barbara in his shadow when action resumed and when the leader missed his entrance on the low side in the first corner on the 22nd lap, Barbara throttled into the lead on the backstretch.

But that move only served to put Satterlee’s elbows up as it forced him higher around the speedway in the ensuing laps, with Coleby Frye up to third from eighth starting spot.

Barbara held command until the 25th circuit when Satterlee used an outside run off of the second corner to blast across the track on the backstretch and bolt to Barbara’s extreme inside as the pair rushed into the third corner.

Satterlee had no choice but to then blast up across the track in the third turn, hoping to catch the car on the cushion and be able to point it down the front stretch, which he did.

Barbara was still running second with Frye a challenging third with four laps to go when the races final caution flag unfurled and Satterlee chose the inside lane for the restart.

When action resumed, sparks flew, literally, when Frye got to Barbara’s inside as the pair crossed underneath the green flag.

A hard hit between the two found each of them leaning on one another for the hotly-contested spot as they raced hooked together in the first corner with Barbara and Frye driving up across the track only to see Barbara slam the outside wall and come to a stop as Frye got away from any accident.

This set up another restart now with Frye to Satterlee’s outside and Frye drove into the lead on the backstretch using his outside momentum.

But Satterlee was not to be outdone nor denied as he put a massive flyer on Frye in the third corner to regain control and bring the fans to their feet as he raced back down the frontstretch, still the leader.

From that point on he pulled away to the win to take the checkers by 1.918 seconds over Frye, 16th starter Dylan Yoder, Chad Hollenbeck and Dan Stone.

Sixth through 10th went to Kenny Moreland, Trent Brenneman, Jeremy Miller, Mike Lupfer and Tim Smith Jr.

Heats went to Lupfer, Zeigler, Barbara and Waylon Wagner with twin consolations going to Brenneman and Andy Haus.

Lupfer set at new 10-lap track record in his head with a time of 3:08.316.

Rick Lafferty led the first four laps of the sprint car main before fourth starter Aaron Ott took over at the front.

Ott was in control over Lafferty, Lucas Wolfe and Greg Hodnett on the eighth tour when TJ Stutts spun, causing a caution flag period.

That running order remained the same until the 11th lap when Hodnett began coming on to get by Wolfe for third and then Lafferty for second on lap 13.

It took Hodnett only two more laps to run down leader Ott and easily drive into the lead using the smooth bottom lane.

He then pulled away to a 4.283 second win over sixth starter Danny Dietrich who was gaining speed with every lap.

Ott finished third followed by Wolfe and Dylan Cisney.

Sixth through 10th went to Brock Zearfoss, Lafferty, Doug Esh, Curt Stroup and Blane Heimbach.

Heats went to Cisney, Hodnett and Ott.

The econo late model main saw Harold Ranck Jr. wire the field for the victory with the race within the race finding Devin Hart riding home third to reclaim the point lead in the chase for the track title with just one race to go.

Hart now leads the chase by 20 points over Tim Krape.

Todd Snook was second in the feature followed by Hart, Eric Irvin and Trent Brenneman, who raced in both the super late and econo late model divisions on the night.

Heats went to Irvin and Ranck.

Pete Leister started seventh in the 15-lap xtreme stock feature and took the lead from Ryan Zook with four laps to go.

Leister went on to win and claim the 2016 xtreme stock track title.

Mike Goodwin, Kevin Imes and Bill Powell rounded out the top five.

2ND ANNUAL J.L. HOWARD MEMORIAL

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Sat., September 24, 2016 (Time Trials @ 7:30 PM) - THIRD ANNUAL “DIRT CLASSIC” for 410 Sprints ($20,000 to win)

ALAN KRIMES WINS FEATURE, CLAIMS SECOND TRACK TITLE AT LINCOLN SPEEDWAY;

Chandler Leiby keeps points lead with first win of the year in “358” sprints; Dellinger dominates super sportsman

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 9/3/2016 – Denver’s Alan Krimes added an exclamation point to his second track title in three years by claiming the 25-lap “410” sprint car feature win at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

And he did it in dramatic fashion, coming from 11th starting spot through a stacked field to take the lead from Brandon Rahmer with two laps to go.

Polesitter Matt Boland led the first 13 laps from the pole before fifth-starting Brandon Rahmer took the lead on a 14th-lap restart. Meanwhile, Krimes was methodically working through the field and was running fourth at the time. He moved past Boland into the runner-up spot on lap 17.

“We got going real good there on the bottom at one point in the race, and it seemed like we picked off a bunch of them,” said Krimes in victory lane, “Then we had that yellow and I restarted fourth, and I thought with those guys running the top I should go to the bottom and drive through there. But on the bottom for the restart I was junk. Then another yellow came out and I rolled the wing back a little bit. Then the car was pretty good around the bottom and I got into second.”

“I was gaining on Brandon a little bit and I was trying to watch the scoreboard because I knew the laps were winding down,” continued Krimes, “I thought I might get one shot at him. When we came up on the lapped car I think Brandon got up over the cushion or something and I was able to slip between him and the lapped car coming off turn four. It’s not a move you can pull off very often, but that was all it took.”

Once in front, Krimes took the checkered two laps later by 1.25 seconds over Rahmer, with 10th-starting Brian Montieth, Austin Hogue, and Gerard McIntyre, Jr. completing the top five. Sixth through tenth were Jim Siegel, Kyle Moody, 14th-starting Cory Haas, Freddie Rahmer, and Tim Wagaman.

Heats for the 25 410 Sprints were won by Glenndon Forsythe, Billy Dietrich, and Montieth.

Chandler Leiby, involved in a tight season points battle with Matt Campbell and Adrian Shaffer, picked up a much-needed first win of the season in the 20-lap “358” sprint car feature.

Leiby started fifth after polesitter Kyle Abrahims came to a stop during one of four attempts to start the race, and took the lead from Matt Findley (who ended up on the pole) on lap seven. He fought off repeated challenges from Kyle Denmyer, who actually led laps 13 ad 14 before Leiby moved back in front.

Denmyer settled for second, with Findley, 19th-starting Brent Shearer, and Shaffer crossing third through fifth.

Doug Hammaker plowed into the third-turn wall while running fourth on lap 13. He was taken to Hershey Medical Center by his family after complaining of a headache, dilated pupils, and general disorientation after the crash, which collected sixth-place Matt Campbell. Campbell came from the back over the final eight laps to cross eighth behind Dalton Dietrich and Phil Walter, remaining alive in the points battle with one points race to go.

Heats for the 31 358 Sprints were won by Findley, Hammaker, and Shaffer, with Shearer winning the consolation.

Scott Dellinger picked up his fourth career Lincoln win in the 25-lap super sportsman feature. He started on the outside of the front row and followed polesitter Russ Mitten for the first laps before making the race-winning pass. He dominated the rest of the way, crossing 1.53 seconds ahead of Mitten at the end. Third through fifth were Doug Dodson, Steve Wilbur, and Kenny Edkin.

Chad Criswell was uninjured in a spectacular end-over-end flip on the backstretch of lap five. That multi-car crash also ended the night for Rich Eichelberger and Jay Fannasy. Fannasy lost a wheel, which Criswell hopped over, leading to the flip.

Heats for the 21 Super Sportsman were won by Fannasy, Dellinger, and Davey Walsh.

Next Saturday night, September 10th, at 7 PM, Lincoln Speedway will host ARCH NIGHT featuring the the 358 Sprints, which will race in their final Keizer Aluminum Wheels points race in the season-long battle for the 2016 track title. Rounding out the evening’s 3-division show will be the 358 Late Models & PASS/IMCA (305) Sprints. Gates will open at 5 PM, with heats set to get underway at 7 PM.

OWINGS MAKES LAST-LAP PASS TO SCORE FOURTH TRAIL-WAY WIN OF THE YEAR; FLETCHER LINCOLN/TRAIL-WAY “SHOOTOUT” CHAMP; HOUDESHELL LEGENDS WINNER; ZACH MYERS WINS FIRST EVER IN STREET STOCKS; MILLENDER TAKES LIMITED STOCKS

HANOVER, PA (9/2/2016) –It was another sprint car thriller at Trail-Way Speedway Friday night.

In the end, it was Steve Owings making the last-lap pass over race-long leader and Trail-Way points leader David Holbrook to score his fourth win of the year in the 25-lap “358” sprint car feature.

“That was tight. I hated to get into Dave there at the end, but it was for the win,” said Owings upon exiting his Westminster Transmission/Valentine Motorsports #35 in victory lane, “There’ll be another winner next week. We’re going on vacation, but this place is really fun!”

Holbrook took the lead at the outset from his outside front-row starting spot and led until ninth-starting Owings pulled alongside him as the two crossed under the white flag. The two touched in turns one and two, and Holbrook drove out of a near spin to recover and finish second .31 seconds behind the winner.

Isaac Sneeringer, Cody Fletcher, and Central PA point series leader Jeff Halligan completed the top five.

Fletcher and Halligan tied for the Lincoln/Trail-Way “Shootout” championship, with Fletcher taking the title worth $500 in a tiebreaker for having the best Trail-Way finish.

In addition the $1,000 winner’s share, Owings also received a $150 bonus from B&D Truck Hoist, one of his own sponsors, for being the event’s hard charger. Mike Bittinger, involved in two early-race incidents, received $50 from B&D Truck Hoist as the event’s hard luck driver.

Sixth through tenth were Dwight Leppo, Tyler Walton, Rick Horn, Seth Kearchner, and Dalton Dietrich.

Qualifiers for the 18 “358” sprint cars were won by Sneeringer, Owings, and Kearchner.

Scott Houdeshell raced to his second straight win in the 20-lap Central PA Legends feature, crossing .37 seconds ahead of Bill Diehl. Chad Earnst, Greg Burd, and Jeff Herbst finished third through fifth.

Heats for the 17 Legends were won by Chris Transeau and Bob Stough. Both drivers were involved in crashes in the feature and failed to finish.

Fairfield’s Zach Myers claimed his first career win in a wild 20-lap street stock feature that saw only five cars finish on the lead lap. Michael Goodwin, Joey Harrison, Marshall McMullen, and Jeremy Stremmel rounded out the top five.

Zach Myers and Matt Wampler were heat winners for the 10 street stocks on hand.

Charles Millender scored his second win of the year in the 15-lap non-stop limited stock feature. Points leader Justin Wagaman, Matt Chronister, Jason Chronister, and Robbie Carroll completed the top five.

The Chronister brothers won heats for the 15 limited stocks.

Next Friday, September 9th, Trail-Way hosts the Hoosier Tire Mid-Atlantic 358 Sprint Cars. Also on the schedule will be the Limited Stocks, Mason-Dixon 270 Micro Sprints and the Street Stocks. This will be the final points race for all four divisions. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. with heats scheduled to begin at 7:45 p.m.

DOUG ESH WINS INAUGURAL GARY BEAM TRIBUTE RACE FRIDAY NIGHT AT WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY
Randy Stoudt wins 358 late model feature.
MECHANICSBURG, PA – It was all Doug Esh in the inaugural running of the Gary Beam Tribute Race for the sprint cars Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway as “The Hammer” led all 25 laps and was never challenged.
The race was run in honor of the late car owner that had three track championships at the Grove, along with wins and other championships throughout central Pennsylvania.
His wife, Patty, former driver Todd Shaffer and former mechanic Jimmy Russell were all on hand. T.J. Stutts had his sprinter painted like the old Beam 88 for the event.
Esh, of Lancaster, earned $4,088 for his second win of the season at the Grove in a car owned by Mark Coldren.
“The car was pretty easy to drive actually,” said Esh. “The guys have the car working really good. We’ve got Factory Kahne Shocks on and that has turned our program around a little bit and HP Engines gives us the horsepower we need. It’s a special night. I didn’t know Gary and Patty as well as some of the other guys, but I knew Todd (Shaffer) and Allison real well. It was a fun night and a great race to win.”
Esh started on the pole and drove into the race lead over Stevie Smith, second place point man Brian Montieth and point leader Greg Hodnett.
Esh built a big 2.55 second lead over the opening laps as he quickly reached slower traffic.
Montieth tried to slide Smith in turn three, but Smith maintained the spot. Hodnett then tried to get by Montieth, but couldn’t make the move. They traded sliders again as they race for the track championship.
Esh was able to get through traffic better than the others and maintained his lead.
“TJ (Stutts) is a good racer and I knew if I could get him behind me he would hold up the cars because it took me a little while to get by him,” said Esh. “We got lucky and the seas parted at the right time. The car was really good. Starting position is everything. We didn’t pass a car tonight, but we still won.”
Hodnett eventually got by Montieth for third. Esh led by 3.25 seconds when Brent Marks had an engine blow and stopped on the frontstretch with 19 laps completed.
Two lapped cars were between Esh and Smith for the restart with six laps remaining.
Smith eventually cleared the lapped cars and closed over the final laps, but it was Esh getting the win by 0.938 seconds over Smith and Hodnett. Lance Dewease raced from 15th to fourth and eighth starter Brock Zearfoss completed the top five. Montieth, Alan Krimes, Lucas Wolfe, Danny Dietrich and Cory Haas rounded out the top 10.
Esh was joined in victory lane by former members of the Beam Team.
“It was good to see the 88, but not good to be watching,” said Shaffer. “I’m not a very good fan. It was good to see TJ (Stutts) and I appreciate him and his family doing this for Gary and Patty.”
Hodnett set fast time over the 25-car field with a lap of 16.773. Stevie Smith, Lance Dewease, Lucas Wolfe and Freddie Rahmer completed the top five in qualifying. Doug Esh, Smith and Eric Tomecek won the eight-lap heat races.
In the limited late model feature, it was Randy Stoudt leading all 20 laps to get the win. Dan Zechman, Cam Zeigler, Chase Billet and Bobby Beard completed the top five. Shaun Jones, Jake Jones, Alan Sagi, Jed Latshaw and Daulton Bigler rounded out the top 10.
Latshaw and Zeigler won the heat races.
Williams Grove will be back in action Sunday night with the Billy Kimmel Memorial for the Sprint cars, plus the super sportsman.

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – The 65th annual Labor Day Fair Classic for sprint cars is set to be staged coming up on Labor Day afternoon, September 5 at Port Royal Speedway as part of the ongoing 162nd annual Juniata County Fair.

Brent Marks is the defending Labor Day Classic sprint champion as he came out on top of a wild three-car skirmish for the win during the final laps.

On the final lap of last year’s race, leader Dylan Cisney pushed his car into the first corner trying to get around a backmarker when Aaron Ott blasted the top into the corner and took the lead. At the same time Brent Marks surged as low as he could go into the turns and got by Cisney as well.

And then as they split the backmarker exiting the second turn, Marks drew even with Ott and then shot into weak control on the backstretch with Ott following directly behind him through the final turns to come up short by less than a second at the finish.

Monday’s Labor Day Classic for sprint cars sets the stage for the September 9 and 10 Tuscarora 50 races sanctioned by Tony Stewart’s Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions Sprint Cars.

8/28/16

Mechanicsburg – As part of the Friday, September 2 Gary Beam Tribute Race for 410 sprints at Williams Grove Speedway, the car’s most prolific pilot Todd Shaffer of Millerstown will be signing autographs in the infield prior to the event.

Known as “Mr. Excitement,” Shaffer garnered Gary Beam and his wife Patty a trio of track titles at Williams Grove Speedway in 1995, 2007 and in 2009 to go along with a total.

Shaffer has been retired from the sport for several years but will return to the track on Friday for the special event.

In addition, numerous pieces of historical Beam team memorabilia will be on display for the night in the infield.

But the biggest news of the night will be the reemergence of the Beam No. 88 colors for the special race.

However just who will pilot the famed Beam machine is yet to be announced.

Williams Grove Honors Late Car Owner With Gary Beam Sprint Tribute Friday

385 late models on card, sprints race for $4,088 to win!

8/28/16

Mechanicsburg – Williams Grove Speedway will host the first-ever Gary Beam Tribute Race in honor of the late Williams Grove track champion car owner coming up this Friday, September 2 at 8 pm.

The Beam Tribute will showcase the Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint cars in a 25-lap main event paying a hefty $4,088 to win in honor of Beam’s famed No. 88 sprint car.

Time trials will be used to set the sprint car lineups for the night.

The 358 late models will join the 410 sprints for the show with $800 posted to win the limited late model main.

Fireworks will also help kickoff the holiday weekend.

Kids ages 12 and under are always admitted for free at Williams Grove Speedway!

Friday’s posthumous honoree, Gary Beam of Gardners owned and fielded his famous No. 88 sprint car for decades going back to the early 1980s with drivers in his seat including Joey Gravino, Larry Jackson, Scott Gesford, Chuck Reinert, Barry Camp, TJ Stutts and Kevin Nouse but undoubtedly his most prolific drivers were Maynard Yingst and Todd Shaffer.

Shaffer himself garnered Williams Grove Speedway track titles for Beam and his co-owner wife Patty Beam in 1995, 2007 and in 2009.

As owners, Beam and his wife Patty scored a total of 37 sprint car wins during their ownership career at Williams Grove Speedway.

Yingst drove Beam’s No. 88 to a win at Williams Grove over the All Star sprints in the National Open Prelminary back in 1986 while other Grove All Star wins for the team came at the hands of Shaffer in 1997 and in 2009.

The car beat the Division II World of Outlaws with Shaffer wheeling at the Grove in 2002.

The team of Beam and Shaffer scored the Williams Grove Diamond Series title in 2009, won the prestigious Williams Grove season opener in 2009, claimed the Jack Gunn Memorial in 2000 and in 2001, took the Mitch Smith Memorial in 1998, walked away with a speedweek main in 1998 and finished a best of second in the Williams Grove National Open in 2007.

With a track record like that, it’s easy to see why Beam will be honored this week at Williams Grove Speedway.

SATURDAY, AUGUST 27, 2016 SUSQUEHANNA SPEEDWAY RACE RESULTS

FRANKIE HERR SCORES FIRST SUSQUEHANNA WIN OF THE SEASON Johnny Palm, Travis Brown and Ryan Greth also Visit Victory Lane

By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway YORK HAVEN, PA 8/27/16

Winning Super Sportsman features was a common occurrence for Frankie Herr for many years.

However, when Herr sold his operation several seasons ago and went part-time in the division with car owner Bill Devine, the starts and wins were few and far between.

The Carlisle, PA driver returned to victory lane in Saturday night’s 25-lap Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman feature at Susquehanna Speedway. The win was the first of the season for Herr as he became the ninth different winner in Super Sportsman competition this season. It was his fifth start of the 2016 season.

Aboard the Dirty Deeds Repair and Fabrication, Victory Lane Construction & Home Improvement, Fastener Specialties No. 70D2, Herr led flag to flag and withstood a caution-laded feature event to capture his 10th career Susquehanna Super Sportsman feature win.

Herr lined up third and immediately drove into the top spot and would never look back despite the seven cautions (including one on the final lap) and a fuel stop.

Russ Mitten started 13th to raced his way into the runner-up spot at the checkered flag, after moving past Scott Geesey following the lap 24 restart with Geesey, who started 12th settling for the third spot.

Completing the top five were Chad Smith and ninth starting Kenny Edkin as 15th starter Gregg Foster crossed in sixth over Scott Dellinger, 20th starting Doug Dodson, Rich Eichelberger and Tony Jackson, who earned the Hard Charger after starting 24th.

Heats for the 31 Super Sportsman were won by Jake Miller, Herr and Edkin with Chad Criswell winning the consolation.

Kirby Sites led the first 18 laps of the 20-lap Extreme Stock feature before Johnny Palm took the lead and held on to capture his first win of the season.

Palm became the fifth different Xtreme Stock winner as Sites, Alex Updegraff, John Frye and 13th starting Ronnie Buck rounded out the top five finishers.

Mallory Duvall won the lone heat for the 14 Xtreme Stocks.

Travis Brown became the first repeat winner in Road Warrior action as he scored the 15-lap feature win and added to his track point lead.

Brown took the lead on lap five and drove off to score the win over Daryl Sipe, Thomas Thompson, Brandon Hedstrom and Robbie Carroll.

Lee Redman actually crossed second but was disqualified after failing post race tech.

Justin Cardasso was the heat winner for the 13 Road Warriors.

Ryan Greth led all 20 laps to win the ARDC Midget feature over Alex Bright, Trevor Kobylarz, Brett Arndt and Tommy Kunsman,.

Brendon Bright was the ARDC heat winner with 10 cars pitside.

The month of September will kick off with a Saturday night, September 3 racing program featuring the PASS/IMCA 305 sprints with the 358 Late Models returning to the track after a few week absense. The Street Stocks and PENMAR Cars will round out the racing card Saturday night. Pits open at 4PM, Grandstands at 5PM and Racing at 7PM.

Brent Marks Wipes Up Port Royal Sprint Field, Calls Track “Premier Facility In Pennsylvania.”

Frye goes back to back in late models, Reeser scores second 305 win, Goodwin gets second xtreme main

8/27/16

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – One week after the Jonestown Jet Brock Zearfoss won the sprint car main at Port Royal Speedway, the Myerstown Missile Brent Marks came in for a landing in victory lane, scoring his second oval checkers of the year, worth $3,200 in a flag to flag performance.

Elsewhere, Dover’s Coleby Frye made it back-to-back wins in the super late model division, holding off Mike Lupfer for the hard-fought victory amid a stellar field.

In the 305 sprint main, Tyler Reeser won his second of the season at the track as did Mike Goodwin in the xtreme stock divisions.

A total of 102 race cars jammed the Port Royal pit area for the night of action.

Ryan Taylor and Marks shared the front row for the 25-lap 410 sprint car feature and Marks took command at the drop of the green.

Taylor trailed Marks for just the first lap before point leader Doug Esh motored into second spot.

A caution flag on the fourth circuit wiped out a two second lead built up by Marks but Esh could not contend on the restart.

Marks entered the rear of the field with 10 laps away chased by Esh and although the rest of the event was fought through traffic, Esh was never really able to get close enough to attempt any sort of challenge.

But even with firm command, Marks weaved through traffic during the final five laps, making some daring and breathtaking moves that could have saved his win or ended his run, depending on pure fate.

Marks took the victory, the seventh of his overall career at Port Royal Speedway by 1.714 seconds.

In victory lane Marks praised speedway track crews for the surface that has produced excellent racing all season long and went on to proclaim the oval, “The premier track in Pennsylvania.”

Ryan Taylor finished third, nearly seven seconds back of the winner followed by Brock Zearfoss and Dylan Cisney.

Both Zearfoss and Cisney drove by Greg Hodnett to secure their spots.

Hodnett rode home sixth followed by Logan Wagner, Lucas Wolfe, Mike Wagner and Joey Hershey.

Heats went to Taylor, Marks and Esh. Kody Lehman won the consolation race. Hodnett set fast time in group time trials.

Gene Knaub took control of the 22-lap super late model main when action began, trailed by defending track champion Mike Lupfer.

Lupfer pounded his patented low groove the entire distance of the event and wrestled the lead away from Knaub on the sixth tour.

But third starter Frye was running as high around the track as Lupfer was low and he used the groove to get by Knaub for second with eight laps in the book.

Once he got cooking around the top side, Frye was able to vault around Lupfer for the lead on the ninth lap however Lupfer kept Frye in his sights for the rest of the race.

One miscue by Frye would have netted Lupfer the lead again and at times Lupfer was able to get inside Frye but his bottom lane just never quite came in good enough to put him back out in front.

Frye was victorious by 1.363 seconds over Lupfer, Dan Stone, Knaub and Chad Hollenbeck.

Sixth through 10th went to Tim Smith Jr., Tim Wilson, Andy Haus, Waylon Wagner and Gary Stuhler.

Heats went to Jeremy Miller, Stone and Waylon Wagner with Tim Wilson scoring the consolation. Frye set fast time in qualifications.

Drew Ritchey drove from his fourth starting spot into the lead on the fourth lap of the 18 lap 305 sprint main, overtaking Scott Ellerman for control.

The first 11 laps of the feature threatened to allow Ritchey to get away for his first ever oval victory but a caution flag bunched the field and placed Jeff Miller and Tyler Reeser on his tail for the restart.

Reeser pounced on Miller for second at the new green and then blasted past Ritchey for control a lap later.

Once in front Reeser pulled away to his second win of the year at the track.

Miller then also got around Ritchey for second, where he would finish.

Ritchey rode home third followed by Scott Ellerman and Cale Reigel.

Heats went to Ellerman, Derrick Bowersox, Miller and Ritchey with Danny Stratton scoring the consolation race.

After a first lap red flag in the xtreme stock feature for some hard backstretch contact, Mike Goodwin led all 15 laps of the feature to win over Pete Leister.

Leister started 12th in the field and raced his way to the front while Bill Powell ended the race in third followed by Kevin Imes and Jason Zook.

SIEGEL 15TH DIFFERENT WINNER OF THE SEASON IN LINCOLN 410 SPRINT CAR FEATURE;

BRIE HERSHEY SCORES SECOND CAREER WIN IN 358” SPRINTS; JOSH BLOOM WINS FIRST EVER IN STREET STOCKS

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 8/27/2016 – Jim Siegel picked up his first win of the year and became the 15th different winner in 20 races in the 25-lap feature at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

Handicapping placed Siegel fourth for the start and he drove into the runner-up spot by the end of the first lap.

From there, he chased down outside front row starter and race-long leader Tim Wagaman to make the race-winning pass on lap nine, one lap after the event’s only caution came out for Adam Wilt, who oiled the front stretch after getting a hole in the oil pan.

“Timmy was rolling in the beginning and I didn’t know if I was going to be able get him,” said Siegel in victory lane, “That caution was a welcome sight. My intent was to do it in one and two, but he got a better restart than me and caught me sleeping. I knew there was a big strip of moisture off of two, and I got a good run and almost got to him. I knew he was going to get it back. I didn’t get a real good drive off four, so I just sped up to hit that moisture strip again and once we got out front, lapped cars did a good job of using their heads, and we just got to picking them off one at a time.”

Siegel drove away from the field for his 13th career win in the Pigeon Hills, moving him alongside Neil Haight and Steve Stambaugh for 24th on the all-time Lincoln win list.

Wagaman settled for second, crossing 4.16 seconds behind the winner, with defending track champ and hard charger Brian Montieth advancing from tenth to finish third. Keeping pace and holding on the Lincoln points lead with one point race remaining was Alan Krimes, who came from 11th starting spot. Rounding out the top five was Gerard McIntyre, Jr.

Completing the top ten were Danny Dietrich, Cory Haas, Robbie Kendall, Austin Hogue, and 16th-starting Chase Dietz.

“We’ve been getting better. We had a decent start to the beginning of the year and then we just started struggling,” said Siegel, “We made gains and then struggle and make gains and struggle. About the last month here, we put a Maxim together and we’re back on Pro Shocks and started from scratch. We’ve been getting better every week. Starting spot helped”.

Heats for the 28 410 Sprints were won by Krimes, Montieth, and Danny Dietrich, with Kevin Nagy winning the consolation.

Lady driver Brie Hershey of Dillsburg led every lap in claiming her second career Lincoln win in the 25-lap “358” sprint car feature. Hersey dominated the entire way in the finale of the Nouse Signs and Graphics “358” Sprint Car Summer Series, crossing 1.19 seconds in front under the checkered.

Doug Hammaker finished fourth and took home the $1,000 top prize in the Summer Series after coming into the final race with a slim one-point lead over Kevin Nouse.

Starting on the outside of the front row and crossing second was Phil Walter, who raced with Matt Campbell for the runner-up spot over the final laps, with Campbell picking up the hard charger award for coming 16th starting spot to finish third. Behind Hammaker in fifth was Kyle Denmyer, who finish third behind Nouse overall summer series points.

Sixth through tenth were Adrian Shaffer, Nouse, Tyler Esh, Jeff Halligan (who came from the back after a multi-car incident on lap four), and Matt Findley, who came from 21st starting spot.

Points leader Chandler Leiby was involved in a turn two crash on lap four, ending his night. His 22nd-place finish, combined with Campbell’s third-place finish closed Campbell to within 15 points unofficially with two point races remaining.

Heats for the 38 358 Sprints were won by Hershey, Walter, Dwight Leppo, and Jeff Rohrbaugh, with Findley winning the consolation.

East Earl’s Josh Bloom started on the pole, led every lap, and claimed his first career win in the 20-lap street stock feature.

The win came by 1.16 seconds over third-starting Randy Zechman, with Greg Diehl, Jamie Zentmyer, and hard charger Jimmy Combs, who came from 15th starting spot.

Heats for the 28 Street Stocks were won by Zentmyer, Mike Potts, and Kyle Martin, with with Josh’s dad Ryan Bloom winning the consolation.

Will Alan Krimes hang on to claim his 2nd track title in three years, or can four-time defending track champion Brian Montieth overcome Krimes’ sizeable point lead to record yet another track title? The 358 Sprints will also be competing in their next-to-last Keizer Aluminum Wheels point race, along with the Super Sportsman who will be competing in their final tune-up before their big Keystone 50 race on September 17th.

Aaron Ott Wires For Williams Grove Sprints Win, Campbell claims 358s

8/26/16

Mechanicsburg – Aaron Ott wired the field from the pole for the 410 sprint car feature win at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, holding off Danny Dietrich for the victory in a fast paced 25-lap main event.

In the 358 sprint main it was Matt Campbell claiming his first feature win of the season and third overall of his career at the oval.

The 410 sprint main took four tries at a start before the first lap could be recorded but once it was the following 24 clicked off non-stop.

One of the initial start stoppages was for a turn over by Doug Esh who had connected with Lucas Wolfe.

Brent Marks started second in the race but got passed by Cory Haas when the first lap was completed while Marks maintained the third spot.

Leader Ott hit lapped traffic on the 12th tour with Brock Zearfoss and Danny Dietrich in the top five.

A hectic pace on a quickening cushion really shook up the front runners during the final 10 laps as the race waged through heavy traffic.

Eleventh starter Brian Montieth had worked his way up to sixth with 10 laps to go and went for a big slide job on Danny Dietrich and Brock Zearfoss that backfired with him loosing spots instead while Dietrich capitalized on the skirmish to bolt into third from fifth.

With Montieth left to regroup, Dietrich set his sights on the rest of the front runners and overtook Haas for second with six laps to go.

With four to go Dietrich was clearly poised to take a stab at the win and the pair crossed the stripe on lap 22 nose to tail.

At first upon entering the first corner, Dietrich faked to the outside then quickly swerved left and under Aott for the lead, which he grabbed momentarily until his car caught the cushion and bicycled, allowing Ott to zoom back by just underneath.

The bicycle by Dietrich gave Ott enough breathing room afterward to run to the win, although only taking the checkers by .554 seconds.

Marks was third with a recovering Montieth fourth and Haas in fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Greg Hodnett, Zearfoss, Freddie Rahmer, Alan Krimes and Steve Buckwalter.

Heats went to Lucas Wolfe, Hodnett and Marks.

Cody Keller led from the start of the 20-lap 358 sprint main with Brent Shearer in tow and saw the pace slowed for the first time with 12 laps to go.

The caution flag erased a nice advantage built by Keller over the field and placed Matt Campbell, who had just taken second on the eighth tour, in a challenging position for the resart.

Keller held Campbell off for two more laps before another yellow flag bunched the field and Keller again held sway for four more laps before succumbing from pressure from Cambpell.

And once Campbell was able to slip by Keller for the lead, he drove away for the checkered flag.

Kevin Nouse got around Keller for second in the final turns with Keller holding on for third followed by Doug Hammaker and Adrian Shaffer.

Shaffer was the Wee Bee Audio And Video Hard Charger, driving from 18th to fifth at the finish.

Heats went to Brie Hershey, Nouse and Kyle Denmyer with Tyler Esh taking the consolation race.

HANOVER, PA (8/26/2016) – Steve Owings made a late-race pass under Seth Kearchner to score his third win of the year in Friday night’s 25-lap “358” sprint car feature at Trail-Way Speedway.

“They made me work for this one,” said Owings upon exiting the Valentine Motorsports/Westminster Transmission/B&D Truck Hoist #35 in victory lane, “They were running fast up front. Lapped cars and driver experience made the difference tonight.”

An inversion draw of four put Owings on the inside of row two for the start.

Seth Kearchner started second and led the first 23 laps before Owings slid under Kearchner as the two leaders passed under the white flag. Two turns later, disaster struck for Kearchner, who hit the lapped car of Steve Kisamore, bringing out the caution and ending the night for both drivers.

Owings led the final lap to claim his tenth career Trail-Way win, with Jeff Halligan, polesitter Kody Hartlaub, Tyler Walton, and Isaac Sneeringer completing the top five.

“If it weren’t for Steve Rucker, we would be here,” said Owings, “We’ve been running here since motorcycles in 80’s. It’s just a lot of fun here.”

Sixth through tenth were Cody Fletcher, points leader David Holbrook, Dwight Leppo, Mike Bittinger, and J.B. Cunningham.

Qualifiers for the 16 “358” sprints were won by Walton and Owings.

Johnstown’s Jim Young added an exclamation point to his second Trail-Way track title by winning the 20-lap 600cc micro-sprint feature. It was Young’s third TW win of the year and 10th of his Trail-Way career. Second through fifth were Brad Weber, Mike Rynard, Zane Rudisill, and Hannah Riser.

Heats for the 18 micros were won by Darren Kauffman and Young.

Travis Leh was declared the winner of the 25-lap street stock championship when apparent winner Brian Walls was disqualified following a refusal by his car owner to a requested post-race inspection. It was Leh’s first career street stock win.

Michael Goodwin, Jeremy Stremmel, Dalton Myers and Pat Meadowcroft were credited with second through fifth. Heats for the street stocks were won by Zach Myers and Leh.

Jim Rost won the 20-lap Lyle Adcock Memorial for Classic Cars.

His margin of victory was a half-lap after Joe Brown and Ron Grove got together while racing for second with two laps to go. Both drivers recovered, and Brown crossed second followed by Grove. Tim Fake and Neal Reamer completed the top five.

Heats for the nine Classic Cars were won by Reamer and Rost.

Tomorrow, Saturday, August 27th, Trail-Wasy hosts the “Kings of Crash” Junk Car Demolition. Also in action will be the Figure 8, Powder Puff and the Limited Stocks in a Championship race. Gates open at 4:00 p.m., with the “Best Appearing Junk Car Contest” beginning at 6:00 p.m.

HODNETT AND GODOWN CLAIM JERSEY RUSH VI VICTORIES TUESDAY NIGHT AT NEW EGYPT SPEEDWAY

NEW EGYPT, NJ (August 23, 2016) – Greg Hodnett of Thomasville, PA and Ryan Godown of Ringoes, NJ felt the RUSH of victory at New Egypt Speedway this past Tuesday Night, as NAPA Auto Parts and Pioneer Pole Building presented JERSEY RUSH VI – a thrilling doubleheader of racing action featuring the 410 Sprint Cars and a Big-Block vs. Small-Block Modified Challenge.

Davey Sammons of Burlington, NJ selected the first starting position in a blind draw by the top qualifiers with Hodnett starting on the outside of the front row. Hodnett shot to the top spot on the first circuit with Sammons, and Ryan Smith pulling away from the remainder of the field.

The action slowed for the first time on lap 3 for Ryan Godown – the only competitor to compete in both the 410 Sprint and Modified Jersey Rush feature events.

The line-up remained unchanged after the single-file restart with Hodnett leading Sammons and Smith. With the race leaders setting a rapid pace, all eyes were on the fourth position where Kevin Nagy, Lucas Wolfe, and Kyle Reinhardt battled three-wide.

Hodnett weaved in-and-out of lapped traffic on the seventh circuit as Sammons closed on the race leader.

The red flag flew on lap ten as Mechanicsburg, PA’s Lucas Wolfe got the Allebach Racing No. 5w upside down while running fifth.

Hodnett remained in control on the restart with Sammons and Smith in tow. Kyle Reinhardt made a bold move to claim the fourth position, taking the McClaren Motorsports No. 21 three-wide to take the spot.

The Lealands.com No. 27 machine of Hodnett was well in control when the action slowed for the final time on lap 21.

It was all Hodnett on the restart coasting around lapped traffic and claiming the $5,000 Jersey Rush VI top prize. Tuesday's event marks Hodnett’s second consecutive Jersey Rush victory.

Sammons finished a strong second as Ryan Smith came home in the third spot, recovering from a wild ride at this event in 2015; JJ Grasso finished in fourth, after a late race charge; and Kyle Reinhardt finished in the fifth position.

“The Ringoes Rocket” Ryan Godown claimed his third New Egypt Speedway Modified victory of the season after starting on the outside of the first row. Bechtelsville, PA’s Jeff Strunk led his No. 126 machine to the initial green flag, leading the early portion of the event.

Strunk held off challenges from track regulars including Godown, Dominick Buffalino, and Billy Pauch. But ultimately it was Godown claiming the top spot at the 8th circuit around the Ocean County d-shaped dirt track.

The yellow flag slowed the action on lap 17 for Chris Grbac who slowed and eventually stopped outside turn two.

Strunk overtook the top spot on the restart before another caution flew high above New Egypt Speedway. While under yellow flag conditions, New Egypt Speedway officials docked Strunk two positions for jumping the earlier restart.

Godown inherited the lead with Frenchtown, NJ’s Billy Pauch running in the second position and Dominick Buffalino in third.

The action slowed on lap 21 for a multi-car tangle in the fourth turn.

Godown took control on the restart and sailed to victory holding off all-time New Egypt Speedway Modified feature winner Billy Pauch. Jeff Strunk rebounded for a third place finish; Dominick Buffalino finished in fourth, and Billy Pauch Jr. charged from the 24th starting position to finish in the top five.

Greg Hodnett claimed the CnB Chubby Quick Time Award with a lap of 14.139.

Collecting $200 in the Oliver Communications Group 410 Sprint Car Heat Races was Kevin Nagy and Joe Kata. Kata also collected $300 for winning the Oliver Communications Dash for Cash. Modified Heat Races were won by John McClelland, Billy Pauch, and Frank Cozze – all of which collected $200 from Oliver Communications Group.

JJ Grasso won the Thayer Performance Burning Rubber Bonus Hard Charger Award picking up a free right rear Hoosier Racing Tire courtesy of Thayer Performance.

Art Leidl was awarded a $300 bonus for being the highest finishing 360 Sprint Car.

Central PA 358 Point Series

Effective at the end of the 2016 racing season the Central PA 358 Point Series will be shutting down. We will honor the rest of the 2016 racing season and we will crown a champion in the division and with that the $1,000 top prize to the best 358 driver in Central PA. We will also be crowning the 2016 Central PA 358 Point Series Rookie of the Year.

The reason for me not continuing the point series after 2016 is I am having a hard time balancing my commitments to the 358 race teams and car owners while also trying to be a father to my two children. My kids who are now 13 and almost 10 are involved with school sports and I just cant find enough hours in the week to fully commit to both the 358 division and my family.

The 358 division is in a great place right now with higher paying shows for them as well as special series races like the Nouse Signs and Graphics 358 Summer Series presented by Freedom Powersports. Last Friday night saw a $2,000 to win race at Trail Way Speedway and in the coming weeks Williams Grove Speedway will play host to a $2,500 to win race on September 16th.

The Central PA 358 Point Series started 8 years ago with the sole purpose of bringing more attention to the drivers and teams of the 358 division. In those 8 years we have seen numerous rookies start in the division and become household names in Central PA 410 racing. We have watched youngsters become National 410 Sprint Car Rookie of the Year as well as be featured on numerous podcast like Winged Nation.

The Series along the way has paid out close to $95,000 in cash to the great teams of the 358 division. With great sponsors like Capitol Renegade, HTMA, Hoseheads.com and all the smaller associate sponsors like the Jager Hill we were able to give back to the teams in ways never seen before in 358 racing. To sweeten the pot we also saw the running of the Capitol Renegade KING of the 358's Series this season which gave out another $4,800 to race teams.

All great things come to an end, and while I am going to miss all the 358 teams and the fun times we have shared in the pits before and after the races, it is time for me to move on. I do this with a heavy heart but I know the division will be stronger and continue to produce the great racing action the division has come to be known for. I want to wish everyone good luck as they finish off the rest of the 2016 racing season and beyond.

Bill McIntyre, Central PA 358 Point Series creator and operator

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY

20 August 2016 By Michael Batz

STUTTS POWERS TO FIFTH CAREER MACH 1 CHASSIS 358-360 SPRINT CAR OPEN VICTORY; YODER HOLDS OFF RINE FOR LATE MODEL WIN; MITCH & HOFFMAN SPLIT WINS IN PRO STOCKS; BISSINGER SWEEPS TWIN ROADRUNNER RACES

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – TJ Stutts of Liverpool drove to an unprecedented fifth career victory in Saturday night’s 30-lap 16th Annual Mach 1 Chassis National Open for 360 sprint cars at Selinsgrove Speedway.

Stutts’ 25th career victory at the track in 358-360 sprint car racing was worth $4,000 at the wheel of the family owned No. 23M.

Jim Yoder of Selinsgrove held off Jeff Rine of Danville for his first win of the season at the track in the 25-lap super late model main event. The win was the 13th of Yoder’s late model racing career at Selinsgrove.

Brad Mitch of McClure and AJ Hoffman of Richfield each took a win in the twin 15-lap pro stock races, while Keith Bissinger of Orangeville swept the dual 12-lap roadrunner features.

Selinsgrove Speedway will be back in action at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, August 27, with the final points race of the season for the four weekly classes. Foss Jewelers Night will feature the 360 sprint cars, super late models, pro stocks, and roadrunners. There will also be a non-point makeup feature for the pro stocks from July 3.

The Craftsman World of Outlaws Late Model Series returns to Selinsgrove Speedway for the 18th Annual Jeff’s Auto Body & Recycling Center Late Model National Open Sunday, Sept. 4. The 40-lap A-Main will pay $8,000 to win. The limited late models will compete in a 20-lap feature paying $1,000 to win over the Labor Day Holiday weekend.

Eric Tomecek took the race lead from Colby Wolmer on lap two and led the way early in the Mach 1 Chassis Open for the Newville Family of Companies 360 Sprint Cars. Tomecek was soon joined at the front by the four-time and defending winner of the event TJ Stutts. Stutts followed Tomecek until lap 13 when the race leader slowed to the infield with a problem. Stutts took over the top spot in a good position ahead of Josh Weller.

His lead would soon be erased as Cody Keller slowed. Weller dove to the inside of Stutts on the start, but settled back into second as Stutts opened up his advantage again. Stutts had to make some late race moves around lap traffic, but held on after a tough season for his first Selinsgrove Speedway checkered flag of the year.

"After the year we had, I was just waiting for something to go wrong. Our confidence levels were so low coming into this race," said Stutts in Victory Lane. Stutts took the win over Weller, Mark Smith, Aaron Ott, and Jason Shultz. Womer, Derek Locke, Ryan Kissinger, Larry Kelleher, and Michael Walter were the top ten finishers. Heat race wins for the 22 car field went to Tomecek, Weller, and Michael Walter.

Derek Locke and Aaron Ott shared the IBEW Local Union 1319 Hard Charger for passing the same number of cars in the sprint car feature.

Jim Yoder drove away from the field after passing Meade Hahn got the top spot in Saturday's Jeff’s Auto Body Super Late Model feature. Yoder showed the way for the rest of the race before he had to negotiate through lap traffic in the closing laps. Jeff Rine had a problem in the heat races and had to start last. Rine had driven to second and was catching Yoder.

Yoder made a very bold outside move to go by not one lap car but both of the lap cars in front of him. That move put the lap traffic between Yoder and Rine for good as Yoder drove to his first checkered flag of the season and the 13th of his career. Rine’s charge came to an end with a second place run from 17th. Bryan Bernheisel charged into the top three late in the race from his mid-pack starting spot and finished third. Meade Hahn and Chris Casner also enjoyed top five finishes.

Donnie Schick, Danny Snyder, Steve Campbell, Matt Cochran, and Tony Adams finished out the top ten finishers. Heat race wins went to Yoder and Snyder.

Point leader Brad Mitch was not going to play it safe in the make-up feature for the A&A Auto Stores Pro Stocks to start the racing action on Saturday night. Mitch said he was here to win and win he did leading much of the 15 lap event. Mitch was not pressured after a big wreck on lap one produced the races only yellow flag.

Mitch enjoyed a three second plus lead over a tight battle for second between AJ Hoffman and John Troxell. The three would stay that way coming to the checkered flag. Joing Mitch, Hoffman, and Troxell in the top five were Matt Wilson and Brandon Moser.

In the regularly scheduled Pro Stock feature, John Troxell was thinking about his first win of the season as he led the early laps. Troxell was passed by AJ Hoffman on lap three, but that didn't change Troxell's plans. He continued to keep the pressure on the race leader for the next 10 laps before Brad Mitch took over second.

Mitch missed his heat race and had to start at the back but rebounded to run second. Hoffman's lead was too much for Mitch to overcome. Hoffman climbs back into a tie for the most Pro Stock wins ever at the track with 45.

"I don't think about it much, I'm just here to have fun," said Hoffman after climbing from his Pro Stock following his fourth win of the season. Mitch, Troxell, Kurt Wray, and Shaun Lawton completed the top five finishers. Nate Herman, Brandon Moser, Matt Wilson, Andrew Shoop, and Tommy Slanker filled in the top ten finishers. Brandon Moser and Tommy Slanker were heat race winners.

Keith Bissinger and Ryan Leister ran side by side for much of the make-up Roadrunner feature. Bissinger fended off the late race challenges of Leister for the win. Leister was second followed by Jason Zook. Will Brunson and Dustin Snook rounded out the top five finish.

In the second roadrunner feature, Bissinger hit a slick spot in turn three on lap two and his car turned sideways in front of the A&A Auto Store Roadrunner field. Bissinger could not save his car before contact was made with another car. Bissinger was able to continue, but fell to the tail of the field.

Ryan Leister moved into the top spot and showed the way with Brian Johnson closing. By lap nine it was a three car battle at the front for the win between Leister, Johnson, and Bissinger. On lap nine all three drivers saw the front of the field before Bissinger moved ahead for good.

Bissinger saw the checkered flag first for his second win of the night ahead of Leister. Johnson had a tire go down on the final corner. Charlie Bryner, Deron Henry, and Daren Rice were the top five finishers. Johnson limped across the line in sixth followed by Ken Schreffler, Tom Underwood, Butch Shaffer, and Will Brunson. Keith Bissinger and Daren Rice were heat race victors.

Brock Zearfoss Wins Port Royal Sprint Car First In Flying Performance

Coleby Frye Wins Super Late Models, Tim Krape Sweeps Econo Late Twin 15s

8/21/16

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Brock Zearfoss of Jonestown scorched the Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night to notch his first career sprint car win at the historic oval, worth $3,200 while becoming the 185th driver in history to take a checkered flag at the track.

Coleby Frye of Dover ran the ragged cushion to perfection to pick up the win in the 22-lap super late model main, coming out on top in a battle with Jeff Miller and Tim Wilson.

And in twin 15-lap mains for the econo late models, Bellefonte’s Tim Krape swept the night to take over the season point lead with just two events left on the season.

Justin Cullum won the all american outlaws main.

Polesitter Tyler Bear took the lead at the start of the 25-lap sprint car main followed by Mike Erdley.

However Zearfoss was a man on a mission from the drop of the green flag, after starting in the sixth spot he blasted forward when action began.

Up to fourth at the completion of the first circuit, Zearfoss made a lightning-fast two-car pass of Logan Wagner and Erdley to zoom from fourth to second in the second turn.

Zearfoss then made quick work of leader Bear, running down his lead with five away before darting underneath him in the third corner to take a command he would never leave in doubt.

Also blasting forward from the start was point leader Doug Esh, who was racing third behind Bear when the red flag unfurled on the ninth tour.

The slow car of James Pryde had spun in the third turn and Esh squeezed between he and the outside wall although making contact but just as he cleared the car, fourth runner Ryan Taylor clipped Pryde and flipped to stop the race.

Erdley ducked under Bear on the restart to briefly claim second before Bear muscled back into the spot.

Zearfoss had a 4.9 second lead with 11 laps to go over Bear, Logan Wagner, Dylan Cisney and Erdley.

A second red flag unfurled with six laps to go when Curt Stroup turned over on the backchute, wiping out a 5.280 second advantage held by Zearfoss.

And Zearfoss then blasted away when action resumed as Esh again caught everyone’s attention by entering the top five after restarting at the rear due to his brush with the fence earlier.

Zearfoss took the win by 1.938 seconds over Logan Wagner, Dylan Cisney, Blane Heimbach and Esh.

Sixth through 10th went to Bear, Mike Wagner, Erdley, Wayne Dadetto and Rick Lafferty.

Heats went to Taylor, Heimbach and Esh.

Second starter Jeff Miller took the lead when action started in the super late model main followed by Scott Flickinger but sixth starter Coleby Frye had intentions for the win.

He was up to third behind Miller and Tim Smith Jr. on the third lap before taking second with four laps away.

Leader Miller entered the rear of the field on the 11th tour with Frye ripping around the top side, pitching his car around the high cushion to steadily reel in the pacesetter.

It was with six laps to go in the 22-lapper that Frye finally pulled off the pass for the lead and win before the races only caution flag dropped with three laps to go.

Frye blasted away at the new green to pick up the win over Miller by 3.646 seconds.

The race for second was a close one to the finish with Miller taking the spot by just four one-thousandths of a second ahead of Tim Wilson.

Andy Haus rode home fourth followed by Trent Brenneman.

Sixth through 10th went to Tim Smith Jr., Mike Lupfer, Dave Brouse Jr., Waylon Wagner and Jerry Bard.

Heats went to Wilson, Brenneman and Flickinger.

Todd Snook led the first two laps of the first 15-lap econo late model main before fourth starter Tim Krape took over for the win.

Snook trailed in second for the remainder of the event.

Krape won by 3.930 seconds with Ryan Walls finishing third, Devin Hart in fourth and Eric Summey in fifth.

Eric Summey led from the start until lap 12 of the second econo late model main when Krape again drove into the lead.

Krapes line was high, wide and handsome during both econo mains to pocket the victories.

Summey proved challenging to catch and pass but once in front Krape pulled away for the second win.

Summey was second followed by Todd Snook, Devin Hart and Tim Fedder.

Heats went to Hart and Harold Ranck Jr.

Justin Cullum won the all American outlaws main over Bryan Green, Jim Minter, Fred Cullum and Gary Moreland.

DANNY DIETRICH LEADS POSSE PODIUM SWEEP IN LINCOLN ARCTIC CAT ALL-STAR “A” MAIN;

Stough comes from eighth to claim seventh career Lincoln win in Central PA Legends

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 8/20/2016 – Danny Dietrich took home the $5,000 top prize and led a PA Posse sweep on the podium and Saturday night’s Arctic Cat All-Star 30-lap feature event at Lincoln Speedway.

Dietrich was 11th fastest in time trials, won his heat, and finished second in the dash to start alongside polesitter Lucas Wolfe in the “A Main.” He followed Wolfe for the first 16 laps before making the race-winning pass exiting turn two of lap 17. He then drove away to a 2.81-second win over Lincoln point leader Alan Krimes, who caught Wolfe for the runner-up spot as the leaders raced through heavy lapped traffic on lap 20.

It's was Dietrich’s second All-Star win of the year, the seventh All-Star win of his career, fourth Lincoln All-Star win, and 31st overall Lincoln career win.

“I couldn’t be more excited to be back at Lincoln Speedway,” said Dietrich after exiting his Sandoe’s Fruit Market/Hickory Run Orchards/Weikert’s Livestock #48 in victory lane, “It feels like we haven’t been here for a long time. Last time we were here we were pretty good, but it was a handicapped show and we had to come from 12th. Not that it couldn’t have been done.”

“We went back to some old notes,” continued Dietrich, “I’m proud of our guys who have been working their butts off. I want to thank Gary (Kauffman) and everyone who sponsors this thing. I was trying to stay with Lucas and thought I would be better at the end. I was definitely tight at the beginning of the race. I was trying to play my cards right. I thought I could use lapped traffic and was waiting for the bottom to come in on turn four and it was pretty wide out of three and four. I was pretty good up there. After I got the lead, I think I saw Lucas’ front bumper underneath me once, so I just kinda put my turn signal on. That’s what we do to win these races.”

Above all, Dietrich said he was glad to be back home.

“I’m glad to be back. This is my home track. I’m glad to see all these fans at this place again, and I couldn’t be happier to be back.”

Wolfe settled for third, with top finishing All-Star Dale Blaney fourth and Freddie Rahmer completing the top five. Sixth through tenth were Brandon Rahmer, Ryan Smith, Gerard McIntyre, Jr., Austin Hogue, and Stevie Smith (the third Rahmer car in the top ten).

Sprint heats were won by Andrew Palker, Cap Henry, Danny Dietrich, and Chad Kemenah, with Jim Siegel winning the B-Main and Wolfe winning the Dash. Fast time in time trials over the 41-car All Star Sprint field was set by Dale Blaney with a 1-lap time of 13.168-seconds (102.521 MPH).

Bob Stough came from eighth starting spot to win the 20-lap Central PA Legends feature.

It was an unexpected win, as polesitter Harlan Leppo led the first 18 laps before slowing in turn two of lap 19. At the time, Stough was racing with Mason Chaney for the runner-up spot, which turned into a battle for the lead. Stough took control later in the lap, and edged Chaney at the line for his seventh career Lincoln win (second behind Jason Rochelle’s 10 wins).

Chaney crossed less than a car length behind in second, with Chad Earnst, Lucas Montgomery, and Reed Saloney (who came from 18th starting spot and failing to start his heat).

Heats for the 21 Central PA Legends were won by Leppo and Chaney.

It will be a BIG night at Lincoln as they swing back into action next Saturday night, August 27th with McSHERRYSTOWN MOOSE LODGE #720 NIGHT and the “Nouse Signs & Graphics 358 Sprint Summer Series” Finale. The Lawrence Chevrolet 410 Sprinters will be racing in their next-to-last 2016 point race for the coveted 2016 Lincoln Speedway track championship. Not to be outdone, the 358 Sprinters, in addition to the 358 Sprint Summer Series finale, will also be competing the 1st night of another Lincoln Speedway / Trail-Way Speedway 358 Sprint Car “Shootout.” Rounding out the full night of racing will be the Street Stocks & York Flooring KIDS BIG WHEEL RACES. Gates will open at 5:30 PM, with racing action getting underway at 7:30 PM.

CUNNINGHAM CLAIMS TRAIL-WAY TRONE OUTDOOR ADVERTISING CHAMPIONSHIP; HAMMAKER CROWNED “KING OF THE 358’S”; MILLER, STILL WIN MICRO FEATURES; ROBBIE CARROLL BEST OF LIMITED STOCKS

HANOVER, PA (8/19/2016) – J.B. Cunningham claimed the $2,000 top prize in Friday night’s Trone Outdoor Advertising 358 championship event at Trail-Way Speedway.

“How about that!” exclaimed Cunningham upon exiting the Jason Bulick #39 sponsored by Log Cabin Inn and K&C Enterprises in victory lane, “All the good guys kept falling out. We busted our butts the last two weeks. This is a new frame because we thought the other one was junk. I can’t thank Jason and the rest of the crew enough for their hard work. This win was on our bucket list.”

Cunningham started on the outside pole and led every lap, holding off several different challengers during the race. Four different drivers dropped from the field during the event. Cody Fletcher spun and collected fifth-place Kevin Nouse on turn two of lap nine. Two laps later, points leader David Holbrook collided with a lapped car in turn two. On that caution, Dwight Leppo, who inherited second for the restart, stopped on the back stretch. Then on lap 21, Doug Hammaker ended up on the outside wall while trying to chase down Cunningham.

Hammaker was done for the night and credited with an 11th-place finish, good enough to claim the four-track, eight race Capitol Renegage “King of the 358’s” point series by a mere five points over Nouse, who came back through the field to finish third.

“We got lucky with those cars dropping out,” said Hammaker on his eight-race series win, “My old man’s ticked because he though my crash was a bonehead move.” Hammaker’s series title was worth $2,000.

Second through fifth in the Trone Championship event were 12th-starting Isaac Sneeringer, Nouse, polesitter Dave Thrush, and hard charger Mike Bittinger, who started 17th.

Completing the top ten were Rick Horn, Wyatt Hinkle, Zach Euculano, Kody Hartlaub, and Dan Richcreek.

Qualifiers for the 20 “358” sprints were won by Seth Kearchner, Hammaker, and Leppo.

Hayden Miller claimed his third win of the year in the 20-lap 600cc micro-sprint feature.

Miller was running second when leader Jim Young spun in turn four of lap eight and led the next nine laps before 12th-starting Brad Weber got by on lap 17. Weber’s motor went sour, and Miller reclaimed the lead on lap 19. Weber dove to the infield during a last-lap caution, and Anthony Macri crossed second at the end. Dylan Norris, Darren Kauffman, and Daniel Bair finished third through fifth.

Heats for the 16 600s were won by Young and Miller.

Jim Still, who announced in victory lane that this will be his final season, scored his first win of the year and the 18th of his Trail-Way career in the Mason Dixon 270cc micro-sprint feature event. Brian Marriott, Mike Rutherford; Chad Myers, and Cory Myers completed the top five.

Heats for the 20 270s were won by Marriott and Steven Cox.

Robbie Carroll scored his third win of the year and seventh of his TW career in the 15-lap limited stock feature. Shane Miller, Jason Chronister, Justin Wagaman, and Matt Chronister rounded out the top five.

Carroll and Charles Millender were heat winners for the 17 limited stocks.

Next Friday, August 26th, Trail-Way swings back into action with the 358 Sprints, 600 Micro Sprints, Street Stocks in a Championship race and the Classic Cars, who will be competing in the Lyle Adcock Memorial. Gates open at 5:30 p.m., with heats beginning at 7:45 p.m.

Montieth Takes Lead From Dewease On Final Lap To Win All Stars Gunn Memorial At Williams Grove Speedway

Darren Miller claims 305 sprints

8/19/16

Mechanicsburg – What looked like Lance Dewease’s race turned out to be Brian Montieth’s victory in the All Star Circuit of Champions Sprints Jack Gunn Memorial at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night.

A week after Montieth’s second victory of the season, he scored his third with a last lap pass of Dewease after losing the top spot to him earlier on the 13th circuit in the 30-lap main.

In the 20-lap 305 sprint feature, Darren Miller of Mount Joy took the win for his first of the season anywhere in the division.

Montieth jumped from his pole position to the lead over second starter Dewease at the start of the Gunn Memorial All Stars main and hit traffic on the eighth tour with Dewease in tow.

It was about that time that Dewease began really biting into Montieth’s advantage, cutting it down to .132 seconds as the pair crossed the stripe to complete lap 12.

During the ensuing tour, Dewease motored into the lead as most had been expecting while Tim Shaffer raced a close third on the track.

Once in front Dewease drove away from the field, building nearly a two second lead over Montieth with eight laps to go.

But during the final five circuits, Dewease’s car began to seemingly struggle as it traversed the straightaways, allowing Montieth to close as he hooked the cushion for closing power every lap.

And with three laps to go, it was clear the race was going to be contested again before the finish and indeed it was as the pair shot for the white flag.

They crossed under the one-to-go mark nose to tail before Montieth bolted to Dewease’s inside in the first corner to make a last lap pass for the win.

Dewease tried to turn the car off of the second turn and get back underneath Montieth as the pair blasted onto the backchute but Montieth was clearly superior at that point as he pulled away onto the backchute for the $5,000 victory plus another $250 for making a last lap pass for the checkers.

“Once he got by it was hero or zero,” said Montieth of getting passed by Dewease for the lead.

“Without the curb I don’t think I woulda caught them. We were gonna win this thing or ball it up.”

By claiming the victory, Montieth pushed the score by the locals known as the Pennsylvania Posse to 30 and 0 over the All Stars in their 30 appearances to date at he track since 1970.

Dewease commented on what he felt lost him the race late.

“We were kinda hangining on there at the end. I made my big mistake up there in three and four on the last lap.”

“I was gonna fly Lucas and he moved down so I went to the top and I just didn’t carry any momentum down the frontstretch,” Dewease said.

Tim Shaffer rode home third followed by Stevie Smith and Greg Hodnett.

Sixth through 10th went to Danny Dietrich, Dale Blaney, Brent Marks, Doug Esh and Freddie Rahmer.

Heats went to Tim Wagaman, Stevie Smith, Cory Haas and Danny Holtgraver. Aaron Ott won the B Main and Montieth won the dash to earn the pole for the feature event.

Fast time of 16.748 seconds was set by Tim Shaffer.

Darren Miller led all 20 laps of the 305 sprint main to take the victory over Colby Dice.

Dice started sixth and took over second on the third lap but could never challenge for the win.

Mike Kiser took third followed by Ken Duke Jr. and Tyler Reeser.

Heats went to Miller, Zach Newlin, and Mike Kiser. Jay Krout scored the consolation race.

THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES

DALE BLANEY FINDS $5,000 PAYOFF AND FIRST CAREER THUNDER ON THE HILL VICTORY THURSDAY NIGHT AT GRANDVIEW

BECHTELSVILLE, PA (August 18, 2016) – Hartford, OH’s Dale Blaney claimed his first Grandview Speedway win when Tony Stewart’s Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions 410 Sprint Car Series returned to the Grandview Speedway for the first time in sixteen years this past Thursday night for the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series. This event was presented by Pioneer Pole Buildings and represented the 123rd Thunder Series event since it started in 1990.

Blaney netted himself a cool $5,000 for his efforts in a thrilling 35 lap A-Main that included plenty of side-by-side racing action.

Lucas Wolfe, aboard the Zemco No. 1z car, bolted from the front row starting position with the pair of black-and-orange No. 1 machines of Dale Blaney and Sammy Swindell following close behind. Wolfe set a rapid pace from the get go – so rapid that the leaders hit lapped traffic at their fifth circuit around the one-third-mile track.

Blaney powered outside Wolfe as the two split lapped cars and swapped the lead just inching passed each other as the laps seven and eight clicked away. Blaney overtook the top spot on the 10th lap.

The first caution of the evening flew on the 11th circuit when Stevie Smith – running in the third position – clipped the lapped car of Kenny Jacobs sending both machines spinning. Smith was able to recover unscathed and unstopped, continuing after doing a complete 360-degree spin with the rest of the field dodging him.

Blaney charged away on the restart followed by Wolfe, Smith, and Swindell.

The action slowed for the second time on the 15th lap for Freddie Rahmer, with a right-rear flat tire while running within the top 10.

On the restart, Blaney raced away as Stevie Smith shot outside Wolfe claiming the second spot.

The red flag flew on lap 17 after the cars of Greg Hodnett, Danny Dietrich, and Kraig Kinser – all running just outside the top five – made contact on the front stretch sending all three machines upside-down. The drivers walked away unscathed.

Blaney dominated the restart with Smith right on his tail. Smith, the 2016 Thunder Cup Champion, took the lead on the 23rd lap, with Blaney claiming the top spot on the next go-around.

The two leaders hit lapped traffic with three laps remaining closing the battle for the top position and allowing a four-car battle for the victory with Stevie Smith, Sammy Swindell, and Ryan Smith all challenging for the $5,000 winner’s share.

Blaney would go on to claim the victory, Swindell moved inside Smith for the second position, The Leffler Energy No. 51s machine of Stevie Smith finished in third, followed by Ryan Smith in the Warko Group No.94 and Sheldon Haudenschild in the fifth position.

This marks Blaney’s seventh All Star Circuit of Champions win of the season, and his first Thunder on the Hill victory.

Blaney also claimed the $100 Quick Time Award. Heat Races were won by Lucas Wolfe, Ryan Smith and Sheldon Haudenschild. Wolfe grabbed the top spot in the Dash, and Tim Shaffer won the B-Main.

John Barnett claimed his first TSRS victory after starting on the front row of the 25-lap feature event. A multi-car incident brought out the red on the initial start retiring four cars – including that of current TSRS point leader, Mike Haggenbottom. Barnett took over on the restart holding off a hard charging Dave Brown and leading all of the 25-laps. Brown – who has won the past three TSRS feature events at Grandview – settled for second place, but certainly didn’t make it easy for Barnett. Tim Tanner Jr. came home in the third position, Tommy Carberry in fourth and Jon Haegele in the fifth spot.

The NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Racing Series returns to Grandview Speedway on Saturday, October 15 for the 2nd Annual Mods at the Madhouse event featuring the Big-Block and Small-Block Modifieds, Sportsman and TSRS Sprint Cars.

Best Appearing Car Award added to the 54th annual Champion Racing Oil Williams Grove National Open.

(Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania) With the 2016 racing season heading towards the fall of the year, fans start to turn their thoughts and excitement towards the biggest event for sprint car racing on the east coast. Spectators and competitors from all over the world will converge on the historic Williams Grove Speedway during the September 29th, 30th and October 1st weekend for the 54th edition of the Williams Grove National Open presented again this year by Champion Racing Oil. If you have never attended the National Open at Williams Grove, you’re missing much more than the country’s best sprint car pilots battling side by side for three straight nights, all vying for the east coast’s best 3-day purse. The Williams Grove National Open is an event that just happens to include all of the above racing and so much more.

Added to this year’s event will be the very first Williams Grove National Open Best Appearing Car Award presented by Williams Grove Speedway, BMJ Property Management, K.R.S. Graphics and Miller’s Racing Parts. Up for grabs to the team that wins this year’s best appearing car award will be a cool $1,000 with a twist. The twist is that the winning team will receive $500 plus a new set of front Hoosier tires and in addition, the winning car’s graphic designer receives an additional $500 in recognition of their craft. Trophies and mock checks will also be provided to both.

“It was something Brad (BMJ Management Company) and I wanted to do to add an additional event within this year’s National Open” said KRS Graphics owner Kurt Smith. “Michael Rigsby and Dirt-on-Dirt does this best appearing format for a big late model race every September and we thought it would be cool to bring it to sprint car racing. We got to talking and Jake (Jones) Miller’s Racing Parts jumped in and offered the tires to bolster the deal. On top of that, once it was presented to Kathy (Hughes) she graciously said she would match the $500 cash we had put up towards the award. The winning team will receive their awards prior to the start of racing on Saturday. We are looking for teams that will debut something different then what they have run all year. We also wanted to include the graphic designers in this award. I know firsthand just how much time and effort is put into the design and we wanted to give something back to them also. Hopefully, it will also add a new element of excitement for the National Open fans as they get to be one of the first to view a new design from their favorite driver” added Smith.

The whole weekend should be a great event, with a total 3 day purse of over $275,000 all climaxing with Saturday’s $50,000 to win National Open. On top of all of that, Saturday is also the final Lawrence Chevrolet Williams Grove point race and the championship team will be awarded an additional $16,000 to be split between the championship driver and car owner. Make you plans now to be at Williams Grove Speedway for this spectacular event.

PENNSYLVANIA MIDGET WEEK ENDS WITH RAIN ON LAP SEVEN OF LINCOLN USAC/ARDC FEATURE;

ALL-STARS UP NEXT THIS SATURDAY

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 8/17/2016 – A surprise rainfall on lap seven of Lincoln Speedway’s USAC/ARDC feature event brought a disappointing end to an abbreviated Pennsylvania Midget Week Wednesday night.

Nevada’s Tanner Thorson set fast time for the 20 midgets on hand, and took the lead from USAC points leader Spencer Bayston on a third-lap restart. He, Brayston, and Brady Bacon were running first through third when Steve Buckwalter brought out the caution flag after stopping in turn two.

As track crews were tending to Buckwalter, the rains arrived. Track preparer Fred Putney and his crew went to work, and the track was minutes from being race-ready when the rains returned.

Lincoln and USAC officials were forced to throw in the towel, and the remainder of the program was cancelled. Lincoln announced that rain checks from the show will be honored for the next three shows, and anyone who cannot return to the track during that time period can receive a full reimbursement by sending rainchecks to Lincoln via regular mail.

Lincoln had skirted other pop-up showers earlier in the evening, and it appeared that the track was in the clear.

Heats for the 20 USAC Midgets were won by Trevor Kobylarz, Chad Boat, and Alex Bright.

Fast time in time trials over the 20-car USAC Midget field was set by Thorson with a 1-lap time of 15.942-seconds (84.682 MPH).

Lincoln is back in action this Saturday night, August 20th, with Pepsi Night along with York County Racing Club (YCRC) Night as the ALL-STAR CIRCUIT OF CHAMPIONS come to Lincoln Speedway to take on the Pennsylvania Posse. Central PA Legends will round out the night’s racing action. Gates will open at 5:30 PM, followed by time trials at 7:30 PM.

Twin 15-lap mains carrying full points for the econo lates and an xtreme stock main have been added to the August 20 and 27 racing programs, respectively, due to several rain outs for the divisions this season.

This Saturday will also be Food Pantry/Church Youth Group Night at Port Royal Speedway. A donation of non-perishable food items to the Juniata County Food Pantry up until 7 pm will net a discount coupon for use on general admission to the races.

A kids candy scramble will also take place in the infield following warm ups on Saturday night.

Heading into the homestretch of the season, Lancaster’s Doug Esh is on top the season sprint car point standings with a total of six point events remaining.

Driving for Mark Coldren, Esh is in a quest for a first ever Port Royal track title while Mike Wagner, who trails by 120 markes in second spot, is looking to garner a third.

Andy Haus seems to have the super late model title well under his care at this point, holding a 320 point tally on top, with a total of five point races to go.

Haus and the rest of the Port Royal faithful have their eyes set on the looming September 3 UFO-sanctioned Butch Renninger Memorial 33.

The UFO Butch Renninger Memorial 33 will go 33-laps in distance and pay $3,300 to start on September 3 as part of the kickoff races to the 162nd annual Juniata County Fair.

Port Royal driver Devin Hart is locked into a heated battle for the 2016 econo late model point title with challengers Tim Fedder and Tim Krape.

Fedder trails Hard by a scant 20 points while Krape sits just 35 points back in third spot.

The econo late models have a total of three point race dates to go on the season including this week’s twin 15s.

All Stars Storm Williams Grove For 34th Jack Gunn Memorial Friday Night

Only oval appearance of the season by All Stars highlights annual event!

8/14/16

Mechanicsburg – The one and only appearance of the season at Williams Grove Speedway by the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions Sprint Cars is coming up this Friday night, August 19 for the 34th annual Jack Gunn Memorial.

The All Stars Gunn Memorial will offer the sprint car stars a $5,000 to win payday with a 30-lap feature.

The IMCA/PASS 305 sprints will share the card with the All Stars featuring a 7:30 start time this week.

Adult general admission is $20 for the racing program with youth ages 13 – 20 priced at $10.

Kids ages 12 and under are always admitted for free at Williams Grove Speedway!

The Williams Grove portion of the weekly 50/50 drawing will be donated to the Marysville Lion’s Club.

The race is on to be the 2016 All Stars titlist between Findlay, Ohio’s Chad Kemenah and Fowler, Ohio’s Dale Blaney as the circuit heads into the Williams Grove Gunn Memorial.

The All Stars will also bring names like Sheldon Haudenschild, Cap Henry, Lee Jacobs, Danny Holtgraver, Andrew Palker, Kraig Kinser and others to the oval for a showdown with the Pennsylvania Posse sprint car stars.

Greg Hodnett won the only All Stars show at Williams Grove last season and is the current Williams Grove Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint car point leader.

In the years since the first All Stars show at Williams Grove back in 1970, the local drivers have never allowed a touring All Star to claim victory at Williams Grove.

If the Posse stars can again successfully defend their turf against the All Stars in 2016, they will have pushed their record to a perfect 30 and 0.

The Jack Gunn Memorial has been run in honor of the late Promoter Of The Year every year since 1983.

Gunn was nationally recognized in 1979 as Promoter Of The Year and not only guided ovals like Williams Grove to worldwide fame but who also at times during his career held the reigns of tracks like Penn National, Selinsgrove and Hagerstown, Md.

Over the years only the sports most elite drivers have driven to victory in the prestigious event.

Names like Bobby Allen, Doug Wolfgang, Dave Blaney, Kenny Jacobs, Don Kreitz Jr., Frankie Kerr, Lance Dewease, Stevie Smith, Fred Rahmer, Greg Hodnett and Daryn Pittman all dot the event win list.

Aaron Ott is the defending Gunn Memorial champion.

This week’s race will be another date in the 2016 Hoosier Diamond Series.

J.J. GRASSO EDGES 12TH-STARTING MONTIETH IN FALLEN FIREFIGHTERS NIGHT AT LINCOLN SPEEDWAY;

Troy Wagaman, Jr. scores first career win in “358” sprints; Fred Cullum makes late-race pass to win All-American Outlaws

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 8/13/2016 –J.J. Grasso started on the front row and held off 12th-starting Brian Montieth at the end to score his third career Lincoln win in Saturday night’s 33-lap National Fallen Firefighters feature event in memory of Brandon Little.

Grasso dominated most of the race from the pole, leading by as much as a straightaway with five laps to go. But Montieth fought his way through lapped traffic to close onto Grasso’s bumper on the final lap, crossing just 11-hundreths of a second behind the Middletown, DE winner. The two cars nearly touched at the finish line as they crossed with a lapped car.

“I thought Brian was going to get me sooner,” said Grasso after claiming the $5,000 top prize in his family-owned BK Trucking/Betts Garage #37, “I was running as hard as I could and was trying not to get over a lapped car or do anything stupid. That rain delay helped. I had a little problem and was able to fix the front end during that delay. I’m just glad Brian Montieth didn’t get by.”

The event actually began with a first-lap flip by Cory Haas just before the rains came, resulting in an hour and-a-half delay. Haas was able to make repairs during the delay and restart at the rear, coming back through to finish 13th.

“I’m having a little trouble catching my breath and I’m a little emotional,” said Grasso, “This one is for Bryan Clauson and Kramer Williamson. Those guys taught everyone so much, and they were such good racers. It feels so good to be here. I guess I’m a little out of shape after going 33 laps non-stop.”

Montieth made Grasso work hard over the final five laps as he closed the gap dramatically, setting up the final front stretch thriller to the checkered.

Third through fifth were points leader Alan Krimes, Tyler Ross, and Kyle Moody. Rounding out the top ten were Billy Dietrich, Jim Siegel, Austin Hogue, Adam Wilt, and Robbie Kendall.

Heats for the 24 410 Sprints were won by Tim Glatfelter, Dietrich, and Montieth.

Hanover’s Troy Wagaman, Jr. took the lead at the outset and led them all in the 20-lap “358” sprint car feature. But the last seven laps were tough, as tenth-starting Jeff Halligan moved into the runner-up spot, closed on Wagaman, and took the lead from Wagaman with a slider in turn two late in the race, only to have Wagaman race back by Halligan down the backstretch.

Halligan settled for second, with 12th-starting Matt Campbell, point leader Chandler Leiby, and Jeff Rohrbaugh completing the top five.

Heats for the 28 358 sprints were won by Nick Palmerino, Adrian Shaffer, and Tyler Walton.

Fred Cullum took the lead from polesitter and race-long leader Randy Doty with two laps to go and scored the win in the 20-lap All-American Outlaw feature.

Doty, Bryan Green, Fred’s son Justin Cullum, and Gary Moreland, Sr. crossed second through fifth.

Heats for the 11 All American Outlaws were won by Fred Cullum and Green.

Lincoln Speedway swings back into action this Wednesday night, August 17th, with a special mid-week show featuring the USAC DIRT MIDGET SERIES (co-sanctioned by ARDC) plus an EMMR Exhibition. Gates will open at 5:30 PM, and time trials getting underway at 7:30 PM.

Montieth Scores Second Williams Grove Win Of Season, Franek Scores URC

8/12/16

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Mechanicsburg – Brian Montieth of Phoenixville outraced Fawn Grove’s Matt Campbell to pick up his second Williams Grove Speedway sprint car victory of the season on Friday night.

Campbell led untl the final lap and a half when Montieth got by for the win.

In the URC Sprint main, URC point leader Davie Franek proved victorious, scoring in 360 action for the first time at the track although he already owned a pair of 358 sprint car wins at the oval.

Rodney Westhafer led only the first lap of the 25-lap sprint car main before the red flag unfurled for a flip in the first turn that saw Nicole Bower leave the speedway.

Bower was uninjured.

Westhafer started on the pole of the main and Campbell flanked him and the pair ran one-two until the halfway point when Cambpell was able to slice across the turns for the lead.

But all the while Cambpell was working on Westhafer, 10th starter Montieth was moving forward, up to fifth on the eighth lap and then fourth over Cory Haas on the same lap as Cambpell took the lead.

After getting control, Cambpell at times struggled with lapped cars as Montieth continued his march, taking second from Westhafer with eight laps to go.

Witih four laps to go, Montieth had caught Cambpell for the lead but just then Cambpell made some great moves in traffic that proved to buy him some time and that coupled with a Montieth miscue in the second turn with three to go, again gave Campbell some breathing room.

But with two to go Montieth had made up for his mistake and the then followed Cambpell down the backchute with a run before blasting to the inside in the third and fourth turns to take command for the win, his first since April 22 at the track.

Westhafer was third followed by Brock Zearfoss and Austin Hogue.

Sixth through 10th went to Cory Haas, Alan Krimes, Doug Esh, Tim Glatfelter and Rick Lafferty.

Heats went to Esh, Krimes and Zearfoss.

Montieth walked away with $4,300 for his win including a $500 bonus for winning from the fifth row. His winning margin was .085 seconds.

Doug Esh won the Jim Campbell Jr. Hard Charger worth $300 while Glenndon Forsythe was the lucky driver picked to win $500 also in honor of Campbell.

The URC main had Justin Whittall leading the first 11 laps before third starter Franek went out front off of turn four.

But Whittall proved tough to pass for Franek as he bolted back into control as the pair hit the first corner but then Franek himself came back after Whittall to make the pass stick in the next set of turns before pulling away.

Fifth starter Chuck Hebing mixed it up throughout the event, eventually ending up second, 1.754 seconds behind at the finish.

Finishing third was Eric Tomecek followed by Jason Schultz and Josh Weller, who completed a whale of a run from the 18th starting spot.

Sixth through 10th went to Derek Locke, Whittall who faded late, Jimmy Stitzel, Curt Michael and Glenndon Forsythe.

Heats went to Robbie Stillwaggon, Hebing and Chris Coyle.

THUNDER ON THE HILL CONTINUES THURSDAY NIGHT, AUGUST 18. . .

STEVE KINSER, SAMMY SWINDELL & KENNY JACOBS HEADLINE RETURN OF THE ALL STAR 410 SPRINTS TO GRANDVIEW

BECHTELSVILLE, PA (AUGUST 11, 2016) – After a sixteen-year hiatus, the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series brings Tony Stewart’s Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions back to the Berks County high banked Grandview Speedway on Thursday, August 18. This huge 410 sprint show is presented by Pioneer Pole Buildings.

Anticipation is at a pinnacle as this event marks the first and only 2016 appearance of the Arctic Cat All Stars. Competitors from across Pennsylvania are looking to lay claim to the $5,000 winner's share and defend the home turf against the All Star invaders. A hefty $500 is paid just to take the green in the 35 lap feature event. Name recognition is huge for this event with the talents of Steve Kinser, Sammy Swindell and Kenny Jacobs giving the nod that they will be in the field

Leading the charge for the Pennsylvania Posse is 9-time Thunder on the Hill winner Greg Hodnett of Thomasville, PA. Hodnett is a threat to win at any race track and has bested the All Stars on 21 occasions. Other expected Pennsylvania entrants include Danny Dietrich, winner of the 2015 Thunder Cup and winner of the 2016 All Star event at Selinsgrove Speedway; Stevie Smith, winner of the 2016 Thunder Cup at Grandview; and 11-time Thunder on the Hill feature winner Lance Dewease.

Fierce competitors like Ryan Smith of Kunkletown, PA, and Brent Marks of Myerstown, PA have taken multiple All Star wins – three for Smith and two for Marks, both in 2015 -- however, despite great runs both search for their first Thunder on the Hill victory.

While the series schedule for the All Stars winds down, the battle for the Championship heats up. Chad Kemenah, a previous winner at Grandview Speedway; leads Dale Blaney, who claimed the most wins of any driver this season; and Sheldon Haudenschild, a 22-year-old third-generation racer from Wooster, Ohio.

Entrants for Thursday, August 18 is ‘The King’ Steve Kinser, a 4-time Thunder on the Hill winner, 20-time Outlaw series champion, and National Sprint Car Hall of Fame driver. In his only Pennsylvania appearance this year, Kinser pulls no punches -- he is coming to Grandview to win.

Also in competition is three-time Outlaw champion and five-time Chili Bowl Midget race winner Sammy Swindell.

Previous All Star winners at Grandview include Cris Eash (2000), Jeff Sheppard (1999), Fred Rahmer (1999), Billy Pauch (May 1998, August 1998), Donnie Kreitz (1997, 1986), Jimmy Horton (1982), and Steve Smith Sr. (1982).

The 410 Sprint Car competitors will chase a $5,000 winner’s share for 35 laps of action on the famed 1/3 mile Grandview Speedway. The tenth position pays $1,000 with $500 to start the A-Main. A $100 Quick Time bonus is up for grabs, along with a $200 bonus to the first 360/358 Sprint Car and a $100 bonus to the second 360/358 Sprint Car.

TSRS likely competitors include Mike Haggenbottom, Jeff Geiges, Tim Tanner, Jr., Samantha Lieberman, Ryan Stillwaggon, Dave Bonner, Mark Bitner, Dave Brown, Jon Haegel, Tim Smolenyak and Jeff Taylor just to name a few.

SMITH ROCKETS TO FOURTH 360 SPRINT CAR WIN; RINE & CAMPBELL SPLIT TWIN LATE MODEL VICTORIES; HOFFMAN & BISSINGER SCORE STOCK CAR WINS; 410 SPRINT CARS RETURN SATURDAY, AUGUST 13

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Mark Smith of Sunbury scored his fourth win of the season in Saturday night’s 25-lap 360 sprint car feature at Selinsgrove Speedway driving Canada’s Patrick Vegneault’s No. 55 entry.

Danville drivers Jeff Rine and Steve Campbell each scored a win in the twin 25-lap features for the super late models.

AJ Hoffman of Richfield took the checkered flag in the 15-lap pro stock feature, while Keith Bissinger of Orangeville won the 12-lap roadrunner race.

Selinsgrove Speedway swings back into action with a rare Saturday night 410 sprint car race this coming weekend, Aug. 13, plus super late models, pro stocks, and roadrunners at 7:30 p.m. Track gates will open at 5:30 p.m.

Mallie Shuster looked like a winner for the second race in a row in the 360 Sprint Car feature event presented by the Newville Family of Companies. Shuster led right out of the gate after passing Brett Michalski as the field jockeyed for positions. A lap five restart saw Nate Snyder throw a slide job on Shuster for the race lead before Shuster drove back into the top spot.

At the half way mark, Davie Franek and Mark Smith had worked into the thick of the battle coming into the top three. Franek started to develop a damaged wing, which allowed Smith to take second. Smith then used lap traffic to work by Shuster into the top spot for good.

Smith collected his fourth win of the year. This win came in the car Smith usually races with the Empire Sprint Series in New York and Canada after his weekly ride needed an engine change. With the win, Smith adds to his point lead after wondering if he would even compete Saturday night. Franek, Shuster, Derek Lock, and last place starter Jason Shultz rounded out the top five.

Shultz was credited with the night's IBEW hard charger award. Larry Kelleher, Nate Syder, Eric Tomecek, Ryan Kissinger, and Mike Walter were the top ten across the line. Cody Keller and Mallie Shuster won heat races for the 360 Sprint Cars.

Jeff Rine returned from a rained out event last week to kick off the night's Late Model racing with a win. Rine shook off any rust he had very quickly in the makeup feature from July 16's Jeff's Auto Body and Recycling Center fan appreciation night. Dave Stamm showed the way early on until a mid race yellow flag bunched the field back up. Jason Smith worked by Stamm while Rine used a battle between Gene Knaub and Stamm to go by both drivers for second.

Once in second Rine was able to catch and pass Smith for the race lead before Smith retired later in the event with an apparent engine issue. Rine had some excitement at the end of the event with a caution flag that put Knaub and Bryan Bernheisel on his rear bumper. Rine ran his best laps of the race after the yellow driving to his sixth win of the season. Knaub was second and Bernheisel was third.

In the regularly scheduled late model feature later in the night, a big wreck shuffled the starting line up in a big way for the feature restart. Hayes Mattern led the first five laps before his car broke at the end of the back stretch and hit the outside wall destroying his car. He was ok.

The wreck handed the lead over to Donnie Schick who led Steve Campbell until a lap 14 yellow flag. The yellow flag interrupted a battle for the lead as Campbell had just pulled out to pass Schick. Campbell wasn't going to settle for second on this night as he drove by Schick into the race lead on lap 16. Campbell finished second three times to start the season, but on Saturday night he was able to hold off the field to the checkered flag.

Jeff Rine ran second until the final lap when he broke. Luke Hoffner quickly drove into second holding off a hard charging Dave Stamm. Matt Cochran and Dave Zona rounded out the top five. Jason Smith came from deep in the field to finish sixth followed by Rine, Dick Houtz, Donnie Schick, and Danny Snyder. Heat races for the Late Models were won by Snyder, Rine, and Gene Knaub.

John Schreffler was the early race leader in the A&A Auto Store Pro Stock feature event. AJ Hoffman climbed into the top spot on lap two in search of his 44th career Selinsgrove win which would put him just one out of a tie for being on top of the list. Early season point leader Brandon Moser had other ideas as he moved into second and started to pressure the race leader. Moser bid for the top spot came to an end on lap eight when he made contact with the backstretch wall.

Third place Brad Mitch moved into second and began to challenge Hoffman as soon as the green flag was displayed. Tommy Slanker quickly joined the race for the win. Mitch was able to pull beside Hoffman, but was never able to move past the race leader. Hoffman claimed his third win of the season holding off Mitch, Slanker, Schreffler, and Andrew Shoop. Matt Hornberger, Kurt Wray, Matt Wilson, Jeremy Kline, and Bill Conrad were the top ten finishers. Two Pro Stock heat races went to Schreffler and Wray.

Keith Bissinger started ninth in the Roadrunner feature, but wasted little time picking his way to the front. Bissinger took the race lead away from Ryan Zook on the fourth circuit and once Bissinger was out front he drove to his third win of the season. Zook finished in second just ahead of Walt Peters, Dustin Snook, and Kevin Imes. Michael Smith, Brian Johnson, Butch Shaffer, Smith Cope, and Will Brunson were the top ten finishers.

Nearly 30 restored race cars from the Eastern Museum of Motor Racing were on display for fans and the cars took to the speedway at the intermission time.

Living Legend Dewease Out Duels Bandit Smith For Port Royal Dream Win

Dylan Yoder scores four super late win of season

8/6/16

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Lance Dewease of Fayetteville became the first proclaimed Living Legend himself to claim victory in the prestigious Living Legends Dream Race itself at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night.

Dewease dueled with Stevie Smith throughout the 35-lap main to pick up the payday that in total on the night netted him $12,510 for his efforts work.

Dewease won the first 16-lap semi main of the night, taking the lead from Mike Wagner on the sixth tour of the semi to claim that victory worth $2,000 plus $160 in lap money. .

Smith likewise won his semi going away, claiming $2,000 for the win plus $160 in lap money and then pulled a 0 inversion to place himself and Dewease on the front row for the start of the Dream A Main.

Smith bolted into the lead over Dewease and Ryan Taylor at the start with Lucas Wolfe driving up to third before the red flag unfurled on the third lap for a third turn crash between Cale Grubb and AJ Flick.

Dewease screamed underneath Smith for the lead when action resumed but Smith would have none of laying off as he immediately scrambled to catch back up to Dewease.

And catch up he did on the tenth lap when he blasted underneath Dewease to regain control but then Dewease put his elbows up as well and came back into contention.

The front runners were working traffic on the 12th circuit when Smith left a lane open low around the inside of the third corner and that was Dewease’s chance to pounce for another run at the lead.

And the pounce proved worthwhile as he motored up off of the bottom groove to edge ahead of Smith at the line for another stint at the front of the field.

Ninth starter Danny Dietrich rolled into third, getting by Lucas Wolfe on the 17th lap as Dewease held sway and began putting distance between himself and the rest of the field.

A final caution flag slowed the pace and bunched the field with seven laps to go, giving Smith new life.

And Smith nearly made good on the chance, running in the leader’s shadow through the dead slick of the oval however as the race came to three to go, leader Dewease began gaining just enough increased traction to pull just far enough ahead to prevent Smith from completing a pass.

The victory was the 99th of Dewease’s career at Port Royal and second of the season. It was also his first ever win in the Port Royal Dream Race, worth $10,000 plus $350 in lap money to bring his event total to the aforementioned $12,510.

Smith rode home second in the Dream, finishing some 1.195 seconds behind and ending up with a night total take of $7,500.

Danny Dietrich finished third after starting ninth in the field, claiming a $500 hard charger bonus to go along with the rest of his night’s purse money and lap money, giving him a total of $3,190.

Defending Dream winner Greg Hodnett finished fourth in the Dream A, ending his night with a total of $2,660 in the bank including $100 for fast time and lap moneys.

Lucas Wolfe ended up fifth, taking home $2,400 in total including purses and lap money.

Ryan Taylor finished the Dream in sixth spot, pocketing $2,590 including purses and lap money.

Aaron Ott was sixth in the feature and claimed a $350 hard charger bonus in his semi to end the night with a take of $2,250 including lap money.

Ryan Smith was eighth, taking home $1,600, followed by Dylan Cisney, $1,450; and Blane Heimbach, $1,900 including lap money and hard charger in his semi main.

Overall fast time was set by Brock Zearfoss with a lap of 16.385 seconds.

The B Main was won by Cale Grubb. Mike Wagner II., won the fan vote to become the 25th feature starter.

Non qualifier Kody Lehman won a free set of Penske Shocks for attending the most races to date of all the non qualifiers.

Dylan Yoder came out on top of a spirited and exciting 25-lap super late model main after dueling with defending track titlist Mike Lupfer and Coleby Frye.

Tim Smith Jr. led the first three circuits of the feature before Lupfer took over with Yoder racing into second on the sixth lap.

Yoder overtook Lupfer on the eighth tour but then had to fend off repeated challenges of Lupfer to reclaim the top spot.

Coleby Frye took a shot at the lead and briefly took command with five laps to go only to see Yoder go back out in front for his fourth oval win of the season.

Frye was a respectable second, finishing just .846 seconds behind at the line, followed by Lupfer, Tim Wilson and Tim Smith Jr.

Sixth through 10th went to Waylon Wagner , Patrick Bryner, Jason Schmidt, Andrew Yoder and Andy Haus.

Heats went to Frye, Dylan Yoder and Chad Hollenbeck with the consolation going to Jeff Miller.

NOUSE MAKES LAST LAP PASS TO WIN “358” SPRINT FEATURE AT LINCOLN;

Reed Saloney scores career first in Central PA Legends; Steve Clemo takes Dizzy Dean Memorial for Classic Cars; Justin Wagaman wins in first-ever Lincoln appearance in 4-cylinder stocks

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 8/6/2016 –Kevin Nouse took his second lead of the race on the last lap to score a thrilling seventh career Lincoln win over Tyler Walton in the 20-lap 358 sprint car feature Saturday night.

The win kept him in the running with one race remaining in the Capitol Renegade “King of the 358’s” eight-race point series.

“Boy, if you don’t like that one, you don’t like racing!” exclaimed Nouse after climbing from the Jake Raudabaugh Bulls-Eye Express #1J in victory lane, “Tyler made a mistake in lapped traffic, and I was able to get by him, and there they were (the lapped cars) in front of me, and I didn’t know what the hell to do. They were keeping a good enough pace that I couldn’t get by ‘em on the bottom, but they were going slow enough that they were holding me up.”

Walton, a one-time winner at Trail-Way Speedway this year, took the lead from his outside front row starting spot at the drop of the green and led the first 11 laps before seventh-starting Nouse slid under him in lapped traffic exiting turn two of lap 12.

For the next four laps, it looked like Nouse was on his way to his second win in two nights (after winning the Nouse Signs & Graphics Summer Series event at Williams Grove on Friday night). But Walton came roaring back to drive around Nouse in lapped traffic exiting turn number four of lap 17.

Walton then looked like the apparent winner until he hopped the cushion trying to slide under a lapped car in turn two of the last lap. Nouse drove under both the leader and lapped car and drove to his first Lincoln win of the year, becoming the 11th different winner in 13 races in the Pigeon Hills this year.

“My hat’s off to Tyler. He’s a rookie, and drove a helluva race,” said Nouse, “He just made one mistake there at the end, but he didn’t have a choice. Whoever was running second in traffic had the advantage, and we were just able to take advantage. Winning two nights in a row is extra special, and I’m just thrilled to death.”

Central PA 358 points leader Jeff Halligan started tenth and finished third, with Tyler Esh and 11th-starting Matt Campbell rounding out the top five. Sixth through tenth were Troy Wagaman, Jr., Brie Hershey, 15th-starting Doug Hammaker, David Holbrook, and 18th-starting Lincoln points leader Chandler Leiby.

Heats for the 34 358 sprints were won by Nouse, Walton, Hershey, and Halligan, with CJ Tracy winning the consolation.

Seven Valleys’ Reed Saloney raced to his first career Lincoln Central PA Legends win. Saloney started seventh and took the race lead from Lucas Montgomery on lap eight. Polesitter Chris Transeau led the first five laps before handing the lead over to Montgomery. Once ahead, Saloney led the rest of the way, taking the checkered 1.03 seconds ahead of Harlon Leppo, who came from 18th starting spot to score the runner-up finish.

Third through fifth were Montgomery, Bob Stough, and Mason Chaney.

Heats for the 26 Legends were won by Chris McKinney, Scott Haudeshell, and Saloney, with Chad Earnst winning the consolation.

Justin Wagaman claimed the win in his first-ever Lincoln appearance in the 15-lap 4-cylinder stock car feature. Wagaman started on the pole, followed outside front row starter Matt Chronister for the first lap, then led the rest of the way in the non-stop race that lasted five minutes, 20.31 seconds, establishing a track record in the process.

Second through fifth were Chris Anderson, Justin Williamson, Chronister, and Julio Perez.

Heats for the 16 4-cylinder stocks were won by Jeff Foster and Anderson.

Steve Clemo took the checkered flag in the 20-lap Dizzy Dean Memorial for Classic Cars. Clemo started on the pole but was relegated to the second row after a false start at the beginning. Dorsey Weaver then led the first four laps before Clemo claimed the lead. Clemo led the rest of the way, with Joe Brown (who came from the rear twice after starting there and then spinning with season-long points leader Neal Reamer in mid-race) crossing second and Reamer coming back to finish third.

Heats for the 11 Classic cars were won by Clemo and Reamer.

Next weekend, Saturday, August 13th, Lincoln Speedway will hold the NATIONAL FALLEN FIREFIGHTERS NIGHT IN MEMORY OF BRANDON LITTLE on KIDS NIGHT featuring the 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints, and All-American Outlaws. The 33-lap 410 sprint car feature will pay $5,000 to win, and the 20-lap 358 sprint feature will pay $1,333 to the winner. Gates open at 5:30 PM, with racing getting underway at 7:30 PM.

IT IS A WINNING TRADITION

John and Pee Wee Zemaitis Continue Winning Ways

PA Sprint Car News | Justin Snyder

Tower City, PA | August 5, 2016

Central Pennsylvania dirt racing is filled with a lot of history. The list of drivers who have ran a sprint car at one of the various tracks spread throughout the area is filled with the "who's who" of the sport.

Even more impressive is the listing of team owners who have provided the drivers the opportunity to race and the fans the opportunity to cheer on a favorite on any given night.

From Al Hamilton and the red No.77, Walt Dyer's Brickmobile No.461, Bob Stewart's Apple Chevrolet No.12 to Bob Weikert and his famous No.29, Don Krietz Jr.'s baby blue No.69K, Mike Heffner's No.27... Car owners have become just as well known as the driver who races for them. However, as the sport has progressed and the times have changed, many of these owners and cars have faded into the history books of Central PA lore while others still thrive.

Among them all, one still remains a fixture at the track on a weekly basis thanks to John and Pee Wee Zemaitis of Tower City, Pennsylvania.

Whether it was painted black, white, or silver, their Zemco Racing #1Z has circled the various Pennsylvania tracks for multiple decades, being a home of sorts to some of the best drivers to come to the area. With past drivers including Bobby Weaver, Billy Pauch, the late Kevin Gobrecht, Jeff Shepard, Sean Michael, Mark Smith, Danny Lasoski, Sam Hafertepe Jr., Stevie Smith, Brian Leppo, Skip Jackson, and a young Kasey Kahne, it is easy to see why the Zemco #1Z is still a strong running team today.

As a result of their continued dedication the sport, the car owners will be honored alongside Randy Wolfe as part of the 2016 Port Royal Living Legends Dream Race on Saturday, August 6th.

Many of their past drivers will be on-hand to show there thanks to the longtime car owners and to meet with fans and reminisce. Jeff Shepard will be in attendance Saturday night. He wheeled the famous car on two separate occasions in 1999 and again from 2007-08, capturing multiple victories to become a definite threat to win anytime they unloaded at a track.

He believes that John and Pee Wee are well deserving of this honor and is excited for the chance to say thank you.

"John and Pee Wee have been long outstanding car owners and always provided me as their driver with the tools we needed to get the job done," said Shepard of his time in the car. "It's not often that car owners stay involved to the degree that they have been over the years, and I think it speaks volumes to their character and personal commitment to racing."

With 87 career feature victories on his resume, 35 of which came at local standpoints Williams Grove, Lincoln, Port Royal and Selinsgrove Speedway, Shepard has driven for many of owners. However it was driving the Zemco car that he picked up arguably his biggest career victory when he captured a Knoxville Nationals preliminary night victory in 2007.

While that moment reigns supreme for him in his experience of driving the famed sprinter, it was the personal connection built with the owners that he will remember the most.

"John and Pee Wee always stayed focused on driver safety and supporting the community and I always felt encouraged to fulfill my goals. But most importantly, they have always supported their drivers through the rough times as much as the good," said Shepard, who was seriously injured in a career ending accident driving for them in 2008.

"To this day it is a pleasure for me and my wife to visit with them every chance we get to see them. They have been extremely supportive of their drivers and their lives outside of racing and I think that's what stands out the most to me. I would rank them as some of the best car owners this sport can provide."

Another driver who will be attending the Living Legends Dream Race to honor the car owners will be Stevie Smith of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. Smith currently races for National Sprint Car Hall of Famer, Fred Rahmer and has seen his career jump-started in the past few season running a part-time schedule. However, he credits John and Pee Wee for getting his confidence back behind a sprint car.

In 2009, Smith was hired to race the famed machine on a part-time schedule after years of struggling to find funding in his family owned #19.

"At the time the opportunity came up to drive for them, I really had nothing going on and nothing to look forward to," said Smith who piloted the Zemco car from 2009-2011. "They really put me back on the map and boosted my career and my confidence."

He echoed Shepard's statements and believes that the racing couple is very deserving of being recognized. "Some of my best years in racing were driving for John and Pee Wee," said Smith. "You won't find a more laid back, yet hard working team. They were extremely supportive and easy on me as the driver and it made the experience driving for them positive and was one of my favorites."

One driver who will not be in attendance for the evening festivities is Australian standout and Knoxville Speedway legend Skip Jackson. After many years of success racing, Jackson came to Pennsylvania in 2000 to pilot the famed Zemco ride. While his time behind the car was short lived, Jackson is thankful for the owners taking a shot on him and giving him the opportunity to race in PA.

"When that deal came together and I got the opportunity to drive their car in Pennsylvania I was truly thrilled to death," said Jackson, who captured his only career PA victory driving their car at Port Royal that season.

"They have had a lot of great drivers over the years and I was honored to be able say I was part of such a great Central PA racing tradition that the Zemco car is."

Jackson was thrilled for the long-time car owners to hear that they were being honored and is forever grateful for their friendship and dedication to the sport he loves.

"They are the type of people that no matter how long it has been since you've seen them, they come at you with the same smile and greeting, and I just can't say enough about the people they are," said Jackson, who has since retired from racing.

"I've been lucky to drive for some great car owners and accomplish a lot in this sport, but looking back it is easy to say that they are some of the greatest people I have ever met and I'm honored to call them my friends. They deserve every honor they get."

While being honored, the car owners will be looking on as the current Zemco driver, Lucas Wolfe, looks to capture the $10,000 pay day for the 35-lap A-Main event. Wolfe captured the Port Royal track championship last season and will be looking to make the night even sweeter for the night's honorees!

 

 

Friday August 5, 2016 Trail-Way Speedway Hanover, PA

UPCOMING EVENTS: Fri., August 12, 2016 – 358 Late Models, Limited Stocks, Street Stock Shootout, Central PA Legends, Large Tire Street Stocks (Gates open at 5:30 p.m., Heats at 7:45 p.m.)

HOLBROOK TAKES POINTS LEAD WITH SECOND TRAIL-WAY WIN OF THE YEAR; Weber, Wampler break into victory lane in 600 micros, street stocks; Carroll takes limited stocks

HANOVER, PA (8/5/2016) – David Holbrook took over the season-long points lead by scoring his second win of the year in the 25-lap “358” sprint car feature at Trail-Way Speedway Friday night.

“This feels really good after last week,” said Holbrook upon exiting the Mike Parris-owned Turning Stone Resort & Casino/Baird Heating & Cooling/SCC Trucking #77 in victory lane.

Holbrook spun while racing with the leaders in last Friday’s feature. But there was no such bad luck this week, as Holbrook started fifth and took the lead from Mike Bittinger in turns three and four of lap ten.

Holbrook was the third leader of the race. Outside front row starter Kody Hartlaub took the lead from polesitter Isaac Sneeringer at the start and led the first six laps before he got sideways and collected Sneeringer in turn two of the seventh lap. Bittinger was running third at the time and assumed the lead for the restart. He led the next two laps before Holbrook made the race-winning pass.

“I don’t know what happened to Mike coming off turn two,” said Holbrook. On the final lap, Bittinger hit the wall and suffered a flat tire, bringing out the checkered and caution simultaneously. He was scored 13th at the end.

“We’re taking a lot of notes and getting better,” said Holbrook, “These Steve Rucker motors (which have won for the third week in a row) have been working great, and I want to thank the crew.”

Holbrook’s win vaulted him into the points lead by ten points over Seth Kearchner and 26 points over the absent Doug Hammaker.

Second through fifth were eighth-starting Dwight Leppo, tenth-starting Jeff Halligan, 12th-starting and hard charger Steve Owings (who has two wins and a fourth in his three TW races this year), and Kearchner. Sixth through tenth were Tyler Walton, Rick Horn, Zach Euculano, Brandon Noel, and J.B. Cunningham.

Qualifiers for the 17 “358” sprinters were won by Sneeringer and Hartlaub.

Brad Weber scored his first win of the year and ninth or his Trail-Way career in the 20-lap 600cc micro-sprint feature, crossing 3.32 seconds ahead of Jake Frye. Hannah Riser, Garrett Bard, and Christian Reed completed the top five.

Heats for the 13 micros were won by points leader Jim Young and Frye.

Matt Wampler was the winner of a wild 20-lap street stock feature that saw six cars finish the 18-car event. Wampler was pressured by Marshall McMullen for several laps before McMullen got out of shape trying to make the race-winning pass on the final t[urn. McMullen crossed .94 seconds behind the winner, with Brian Walls, Jeremy Stremmel, and Will Walls finishing third through fifth.

McMullen and Wampler were heat winners.

Robbie Carroll raced to his second win of the year in the 15-lap limited stock feature. Matt Chronister, Justin Wagaman, Justin Oberlin and Travis Brown rounded out the top five.

Julio Perez and Carroll were heat winners for the 18 limited stocks.

Next Friday, August 12th, Trail-Way hosts a jam-packed schedule featuring the Precise Racing Products 358 Late Model Series along with the Limited Stocks and ServiceMaster Clean Central PA Legends. The Street Stocks will participate in the second leg of the Susquehanna/Trail-Way Street Stock/Xtreme Stock Shootout. The Large Tire Street Stocks will make their first appearance since 2013 at Trail-Way in a 25-lap, $600 to win Showdown, featuring racecars from Susquehanna, Big Diamond, Hagerstown and Winchester Speedways. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. with heats beginning at 7:45 p.m.

LUCAS WOLFE WINS WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY SPRINT CAR FEATURE IN DOMINATING FASHION
Kevin Nouse wins Nouse Signs and Graphics Summer Series Feature for 358 Sprints
MECHANICSBURG, PA - Lucas Wolfe usually only drives the Zemco sprinter in time trial races at Williams Grove Speedway.
But, Friday night, Wolfe was there for a regular show in the John and Pee Wee Zemaitis-owned Zemco No. 1 in preparation for next week’s Knoxville Nationals.
He made it pay off, too, as he dominated the Lawrence Chevrolet Sprint car feature for his 15th career Grove win and second of the season earning $3,600.
“We were getting tight on time with Knoxville coming up next week and we never had the opportunity to run the car that we plan on running there,” said Wolfe. “We have a car and an engine that we think will be our best option to run there and we wanted to get some laps with it and make sure it was okay.”
It was more than okay as it was fast right out of the box.
“The car felt good all night right from the first lap in warm-ups,” said Wolfe. “It has been tricky here. It has been hard to get a good feel even if you’re really quick. Tonight, I was good right from the start. In the feature, the closer you get to the front, generally you feel better.”
Rodney Westhafer started on the pole and got the jump on Aaron Ott to start the 25-lap main event. A first turn crash involving Frankie Herr and Jim Shuster stopped the race with one lap completed.
Westhafer got a good restart as Doug Esh passed two cars moving into fifth. Fifth starter Wolfe used an inside move in turn four and drove by Cory Haas and into third.
Last week’s feature winner Freddie Rahmer spun in turn three and collected Kody Lehman, who flipped bringing out another red flag. Ott pitted out of second spot as the cars were lining back up for the restart.
Wolfe ducked under Westhafer for the lead in turn one and would take it. Westhafer’s inside top wing panel came off in turn one bringing out the caution. Westhafer pitted and Wolfe was the leader for the lap three restart.
Brian Montieth drove by Alan Krimes and Esh to take third on the restart. Krimes passed Esh and was up to fourth as Wolfe streaked away from Haas.
Wolfe reached slower traffic with a three second lead. Haas and Montieth split two lapped cars as they raced into turn three as they tried to keep pace with Wolfe.
Montieth would take second from Haas in turns three and four with eight laps to go, but was 4.2 seconds behind the leader. Krimes would grab third from Haas over the final laps.
Wolfe scored the win by 2.981 seconds over Montieth. Krimes, Esh and Haas completed the top five.
“I was concerned when some of those yellows came out because I was close to advancing some spots, but those guys had their own misfortunes and it worked out okay for me anyway,” said Wolfe. “We were fortunate to take advantage of a good opportunity tonight.”
Point leader Greg Hodnett, second place point man Danny Dietrich, Chase Dietz, Matt Campbell and Steve Buckwalter rounded out the top 10.
Heat races for the 26 cars were won by Dietrich, Hodnett and Rahmer.
In the Nouse Signs and Graphics Summer Series for the 358 Sprints, it was Kevin Nouse taking the lead on lap 11 and going on to score the victory.
Todd Reed led the first four laps of the 25-lap main event before Matt Findley drove by. Kevin Nouse was up to second from ninth and Eric Parker into third. A red flag stopped the race for Cody Keller’s second turn flip with seven completed.
Findley was able to maintain his lead, but a five-car crash in turn three brought the red flag out again with nine laps completed.
Nouse and Findley swapped the lead in turns three and four on the restart. They did again in turns one and two, but this time Nouse drove into the lead off the inside of turn two.
Nouse had a comfortable lead in lapped traffic when the caution flag flew with three laps to go giving him a clear track to the finish. Parker took second from Findley on the restart. Doug Hammaker raced from the 16th starting spot to finish fourth and 11th starter Chandler Leiby completed the top five. Matt Campbell, Rich Eichelberger, Nyle Berkes, Tyler Esh and Jordan Givler rounded out the top 10.

Sprint Car Feature (25 laps): 1. Lucas Wolfe. 2. Brian Montieth. 3. Alan Krimes. 4. Doug Esh. 5. Cory Haas. 6. Greg Hodnett. 7. Danny Dietrich. 8. Chase Dietz. 9. Matt Campbell. 10.

Port Royal Dream Race Fast Timers Can “Stay, OR Play For Pay” To Start Semis

Inversion gamble offers front row, third row and fourth row starts for cash up front!

8/1/16

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – The top two fast timers in qualifying at this Saturday’s Living Legends Dream Race at Port Royal Speedway will have the chance to “Stay OR Play For Pay,” in order to start the twin 16-lap semi mains.

As has been customary after time trials, the entire field will be split into odd and even groups based on their overall finish order in the time trial results.

The first semi will be made up of the odd timers (1, 3, 5, etc.) while the second semi will be comprised of the even timers (2, 4, 6, etc.) and both the odd and even fast timer will be in line for $100 fast time awards plus a weighty decision.

To begin with, the speedway is offering an inversion of four to start the semis, which means that the fast timer can start fourth in his semi. He can choose to accept that option and be on his way back to the pits.

However, the two top time trialers will also be offered a gamble, to “Stay, OR Play For Pay,” offering them the chance to either better their starting position or perhaps worsen it and earn some cash in the process if they opt to give up their already offered inversion of four.

If the duo of fast timers chooses to do so, they can take the gamble and “Play For Pay,” by reaching into a bag to pick an alternate inversion pill.

Inversion options in the “Play For Pay,” gamble will be 0, 6 and 8.

If the 0 pill is pulled, the semis will begin with a heads up start and each of the fast timers will earn $100 for placing themselves on the pole to start AND if they can go on to win the semi, they will earn an additional $400 each, on top of the already posted $2,000 winner’s share.

In total, if he wins, this could net either driver a total of $2,600 for his 16-lap effort.

If the 6 inversion pill is pulled, the fast timers will set themselves on the third row to start their respective semis and each driver will walk away with $350 just for pulling the pill on top of the money they earn racing in the semi.

And if the 8 pill is pulled, the fast timers will set themselves in the fourth row to start and each driver will walk away with $500 just for pulling the pill on top of the money they earn racing in the semi.

The top three finishers in the semis will advance to an inversion draw to start the 35-lap Dream A Main with inversion possibilities of 0, 4 and 6 being offered for the A.

The balance of the Dream A Main starting grid will be filled via a heads up start based on finishing position in each semi with the top 10 from each semi filling the first 20 starting positions in the A.

A B Main will fill out the final four Dream starting spots.

At the conclusion of the B Main, a lucky 25th feature starter will be chosen by a fan vote from all the remaining cars that complete the B.

STEVE OWINGS CLAIMS SECOND CONSECUTIVE TRAIL-WAY 358 SPRINT CAR WIN Montgomery, Walls & Foster Other Friday Night Winners

HANOVER, PA (7/29/2016) – The saying goes, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”

Westminster, Maryland’s Steve Owings, along with the Westminster Transmission/Valentine Motorsports #35 crew are pondering that very quote after claiming their second consecutive Hoosier Tire Mid-Atlantic 358 Sprint Car win, Friday night at Trail-Way Speedway.

An inversion draw placed Cody Fletcher on the pole for the start, and despite leading the first eleven laps while holding off eighth starting David Holbrook, who made several attempts for the lead, Owings raced his way around both drivers by lap 12 and never looked back.

“I don’t know about Groundhog’s Day… but I did feel a lot better being third with the #77 (David Holbrook) and the #66A (Cody Fletcher) ahead of me to see what they were doing. I just waited and finally had the opportunity to make my move.”

Owings mentioned in victory lane that he and his crew plan to race at Trail-Way in the 358 Sprint Car division next Friday night.

“It had been a while since I had been in victory lane… this feels good!”

Fletcher crossed the line second followed by the Big Mike’s Crabhouse Hard Charger, Jeff Halligan, who started 17th in the 25-lap feature and finished third. Dale Hammaker and Holbrook completed the top five.

Rounding out the top ten were JB Cunningham, Jr., Zach Euculano, Shane Smith, Randy Whisler and Seth Kearchner.

Qualifiers for the 18 “358” Sprints were won by Holbrook, Tyler Walton and Kearchner.

Ninth starting, Lucas Montgomery, won by the length of a bumper at the line, beating race-long leader Mason Chaney, for his ninth career Trail-Way win and first of the year.

Chaney joined Montgomery in victory lane following the close call at the flag stand. Trail-Way Speedway announcer, Scott Hockensmith, told Chaney he had only lost by the length of a bumper. Chaney’s response to Montgomery was to “take off his bumper.”

Following Montgomery and Chaney across the line were Chad Earnst, Bill Diehl and Justice Forbes, completing the top five.

Qualifiers for the 21 Legends were won by Chris McKinney and Montgomery.

Brian Walls raced from last place (13th starting position) to win his fourth career 20-lap Street Stock feature, and second of the 2016 racing season.

Outside polesitter, Aaron Beard, led from the drop of the green until a lap four restart saw polesitter Zach Myers take over the top spot. Walls moved into second on lap eleven and claimed the lead only three laps later.

Second through fifth were Marshall McMullen, Zach Myers, Beard and Alex Updegraff.

Heats for the 13 Street Stocks were won by Zach Myers and Michael Goodwin.

Jeff Foster held off the charges of Julio Perez and Justin Oberlin to claim the 15-lap Limited Stock win. Perez and Oberlin attempted several passes throughout the feature, almost succeeding on lap ten when the lapped car driven by Creden Sponseller, Jr. became a factor. Sponseller nearly collected Foster, but Foster never stopped his car, which allowed him to restart in the lead.

Foster held on to claim his second career Trail-Way Limited Stock win and first of 2016, followed by Rohrbaugh in second, and Robbie Carroll, who came back from restarting in the rear after a caution on the initial green to finish third. Fourth and fifth went to Perez and Oberlin.

Heats for the 20 Limited Stocks were won by Oberlin and Matt Chronister.

Next Friday, August 5th, Trail-Way hosts the 358 Sprints along with the Limited Stocks, Street Stocks and 600 Micro Sprints. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. with heats beginning at 7:45 p.m.

The following Friday, August 12th, Trail-Way hosts a jam-packed schedule featuring the Precise Racing Products 358 Late Model Series along with the Limited Stocks and ServiceMaster Clean Central PA Legends. The Street Stocks will participate in the second leg of the Susquehanna/Trail-Way Street Stock/Xtreme Stock Shootout. The Large Tire Street Stocks will make their first appearance since 2013 at Trail-Way in a 25-lap, $600 to win Showdown, featuring racecars from Susquehanna, Big Diamond, Hagerstown and Winchester Speedways. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. with heats beginning at 7:45 p.m.

For all the latest news and related information from Trail-Way Speedway, fans are reminded to visit the speedway website at www.trail-wayspeedway.com. The complete story and agate from each race night is posted shortly after the final checkered flag.

Freddie Rahmer Claims First Victory At Williams Grove Speedway Friday

URC/ESS 360 Sprint Nationals To Hodnett

7/29/16

Mechanicsburg – Freddie Rahmer scored his first ever Williams Grove Speedway sprint car win on Friday night, racing ahead of Alan Krimes and Greg Hodnett to the win as he etched another Rahmer name on the historic oval’s all time win list.

In the $4,000 to win, 25-lap URC/ESS 360 sprint car nationals, Greg Hodnett wired the field from the pole for the victory to record a hat track in 360 action at the track to date this season.

Matt Campbell took the lead from the pole at the start of the 410-sprint car main followed by Steve Buckwalter and Rahmer, who started sixth.

Rahmer wasted very little time putting himself into contention, blasting by Buckwalter for second on the second tour only to see Buckwalter reclaim the spot.

Rahmer finally completed the pass on the fifth circuit with a low side move in the third corner and Campbell and Rahmer entered the backmarkers on the eighth lap.

Campbell held a good lead and ran a good line while blasting around the top of the speedway and forced Rahmer to track him down in order to get his shot at the victory.

With 12 laps to go, the Salfordville 20-year old pilot was poised to begin challenging for the top spot and after three laps of trying Rahmer again blasted low into the third turn, underneath Campbell this time, to take control.

However at the same time as Rahmer was going out front, tenth starter Greg Hodnett was motoring into the top spots as well along with Alan Krimes.

Hodnett took second on the 17th tour and was chasing Rahmer through heavy traffic, trying to take the win away.

But strong, deliberate moves by Rahmer in traffic kept him comfortably ahead of Hodnett and then just when he appeared home free, a caution flag with two laps to go slowed the pace, now finding Krimes in second for the restart.

Rahmer would drive uncontested over the final mile of competition to take the payday by .953 seconds over Krimes, Hodnett, Campbell and Buckwalter.

Sixth through 10th went to Brian Montieth, Danny Dietrich, Brock Zearfoss, Lucas Wolfe and Mark Smith.

Heats went to Wolfe, Hodnett and Doug Esh with the consolation going to Brandon Rahmer.

The initial start of the 410 sprint main was red flagged when Lancaster’s Doug Esh flipped on the frontstretch after starting eighth.

Hodnett would cruise to victory in the 25-lap URC/ESS 360 sprint main, finding his pace slowed only twice but both times he was able to pull away with the lead.

Aaron Ott got by Davie Franek for second on the third tour and tried to chase Hodnett but keeping him in sight was a challenge.

Ott instead was challenged on a lap 12 restart by New York’s Chuck Hebing, who bolted to his outside in the first and second turns to take over the second position.

But Hebing too was unable to keep pace with Hodnett although on just one occasion Hodnett did get held up in traffic for a few laps to allow Hebing to close the gap slightly.

However Hodnett still picked up the win, his third this season at the track in 360 sprint action, by 3.174 seconds over Hebing followed by Ott, Robbie Stillwaggon and Franek.

Sixth through 10th went to Josh Weller, Lucas Wolfe, Curt Michael, Kyle Reinhardt and Jason Schultz.

Heats for the 34 cars in action went to Hodnett, Franek, Adam Carberry and Ott with the consolation going to Jordan Thomas.

STEVE KINSER & SAMMY SWINDELL TO RACE AT GRANDVIEW. . . . .

NAPA AUTO PARTS THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES PRESENTED BY PIONEER POLE BUILDINGS PREPS FOR THE RETURN OF THE 410 SPRINT ALL STARS, THURSDAY NIGHT AUGUST 18

BECHTELSVILLE, PA (July 27, 2016) – The top drivers from Tony Stewart’s Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions nationally touring 410 sprint car series races into Grandview Speedway on Thursday, August 18 as part of the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series presented by Pioneer Pole Buildings.

This marks the first appearance of the All Stars since 2000 when Cris Eash claimed the victory and the final 410 sprint car race of the 2016 Grandview Speedway racing season.

The Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions competitors challenge the central Pennsylvania Sprint Car mainstays in a 35 Lap event paying $5,000 to the winner -- $1,000 for 10th and $500 to start. With no regular weekly 410 sprint car competition, Grandview Speedway gives competitors an even playing field – leading to unpredictable finishes and exciting racing action.

Expected entrants include current All Stars point leader Chad Kemenah, who holds a single Thunder on the Hill win in June of 2009; Dale Blaney, searching for his first Grandview Speedway win; Sheldon Haudenschild, who holds 5 All Star wins this season; Danny Holtgraver, 2-time winner this season; and Kraig Kinser of Bloomington, Indiana

Two legendary sprint car drivers join the ranks as Steve Kinser, a 4-time Thunder on the Hill race winner, and Sammy Swindell chase the $5,000 winner’s share. For Kinser, this will be his first and only race in the state of Pennsylvania for over two years. Kinser is excited to make the return to the “hill”, a track where has enjoyed great success and continues to have a huge fan base. And let’s be clear, “the King” is coming to win, as this visit is far more than an autograph signing opportunity. The same can be said for the somewhat controversial Sammy Swindell.

Pennsylvania mainstays expected to compete include passed Thunder on the Hill winners: Lance Dewease, an 11-time winner; Greg Hodnett, an 8-time winner; and Danny Dietrich, winner of the Inaugural Thunder Cup. The “Kunkletown Kid” Ryan Smith is looking to shake the Grandview bad luck. Smith is determined to find that first Thunder on the Hill 410 sprint victory.

Previous All Star Circuit of Champions winners at Grandview include Jeff Shepard (1999), Fred Rahmer (1999), Billy Pauch (May 1998, August 1998), Donnie Kreitz (1997, 1986), Jimmy Horton (1982), and Steve Smith Sr. (1982).

Also on the card is the popular TSRS Sprint Cars competing in heat race events all leading up to a 25 lap event.

For the All Star Sprints, a $100 Quick Time Bonus will be offered along with a $200 bonus for the top 360/358 Sprint Car, and a $100 bonus to the second place 360/358 Sprint Car.

General Admission tickets for Thursday, August 18 are $30 for adults, $10 for children (6-11), and children under 6 are FREE!

Guy Webb then purchased the series from Emick in the summer of 2002 and served as the series President for the next 12 years. Motorsports entrepreneur Tony Stewart agreed to terms with Guy Webb to become the sole owner of the original winged sprint car tour in January of 2015.

STEVIE SMITH CLAIMS THUNDER CUP AND FIRST GRANDVIEW WIN; HODNETT, HOWARD, AND VONDOHREN GRAB WINS IN 4 FEATURE SHOW TUESDAY NIGHT

BECHTELSVILLE, PA (July 26, 2016) – Broken Arrow, Oklahoma’s Stevie Smith captured the 410 Sprint Car Thunder Cup trophy, the $5,000 top-prize, and his first career Grandview Speedway win this past Tuesday Night when the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series presented the 2nd Annual 410 Sprint Thunder Cup event at the Berks County dirt track. The race night sponsor was Pioneer Pole Buildings.

Greg Hodnett picked up the win in the 410 Sprint car make-up feature event, rain halted from PA Sprint Car Speedway. Duane Howard claimed the 30 Lap, $3,000 NASCAR 358 Modfied main event while Craig VonDohren picked up the win in the 358 make-up feature event.

Kunkletown, PA’s Ryan Smith started on the pole of the 35 lap Thunder Cup main event setting a rapid pace and hitting lapped traffic by the fourth circuit. Smith aboard the Warko No. 94 swapped grooves dodging lapped cars with Stevie Smith in the second position. Stevie Smith – the veteran – made his move on the fourth circuit pulling outside the ‘Kunkletown Kid’ – but it was the younger Smith making a bold move dodging between lapped cars to hold on to the top spot.

A lap 10 red flag for Freddie Rahmer – who got upside down after contact with a lapped car – halted the action for the only time of the race.

During the red flag, Ryan Smith discovered an issue with the radiator hose on his No. 94 machine draining the water out of his sprint car, handing the lead over to ‘The Black Bandit’ Stevie Smith.

On the restart, Stevie Smith powered away while Tim Shaffer battled Danny Dietrich and Greg Hodnett for the second spot.

With Smith at the helm at the halfway point, all eyes were on Myerstown, PA’s Brent Marks moving forward from the 11th starting position into the fifth spot. Smith held a full straight-a-way lead while Shaffer, Hodnett, Dietrich and Marks battled for the runner-up position.

Dietrich would overtake the second spot and close on Smith through the later portion of the event but it was ‘The Black Bandit’ maintaining the lead and rolling under the checkered flag in first position. Danny Dietrich finished in second, Greg Hodnett in third, Tim Shaffer in fourth and Brent Marks in fifth.

Tim Shaffer set the Quick Time with a lap of 12.603, Qualifying Heat Races were won Lucas Wolfe, Alan Krimes and Davey Sammons.

Thomasville, PA’s Greg Hodnett claimed his ninth Thunder on the Hill victory dominating the final 20 laps of the rain-delayed 35 lap PA Speedweek feature event. Hodnett set a rapid pace from the get go, pulling away from the lead with Brent Marks in tow. Hodnett weaved in and out of heavy lapped traffic holding off Brent Marks – who was closing on the leader. Hodnett picked up the $5,000 winner’s share, Marks settled for second, Lucas Wolfe in third, Aaron Ott in fourth and Stevie Smith rounding out the top five finishers.

Duane Howard, of Oley, PA, led the Mike Petruska Racing No. 66 to victory in the 30 lap NASCAR 358 Modified feature event. Howard started on the front row with Brett Kressley and charged to the front from the opening green flag. Howard switched lanes from the middle to the top spot holding off Kressley’s No. 357 machine.

A lap 10 yellow for Boyertown, PA’s Ryan Watt slowed the field for the only caution of the evening.

On the restart, Howard held on to the top spot with Kressley in second, while a three-car battle for the third spot developed between Craig VonDohren, Jeff Strunk and Modified rookie Mike Lisowski – with Craig VonDohren getting the best of the war.

With Howard setting the pace, VonDohren charged around the outside of Kressley for the second position and set his sights on the leader, closing with five laps remaining.

Howard would go on to pick up the win, VonDohren settling for second, Modified rookie Brett Kressley in third aboard the Norm’s Save Station No. 357, Jeff Strunk in fourth and Mike Lisowski in fifth – in less than half a dozen Modified starts.

Modified Heat Races were won by Jeff Strunk and Rick Laubach.

Oley, PA’s Craig VonDohren launched from his second place starting spot in the 30 lap make-up feature event, setting a rapid pace early on with Duane Howard, Rick Laubach and Jeff Strunk right on his tail. A bold three-wide maneuver around Howard and Strunk moved Laubach into the second spot setting his sights on VonDohren. Howard would pull pitside a lap later. Laubach closed the gap on the 12th circuit pulling alongside the race leader before retiring just two laps later. Strunk inherited the second place position and challenged VonDohren for the lead with five laps remaing. VonDohren would claim the $3,000 top prize, Strunk would settle for second, Jimmy Horton in third, Brian Hirthler in fourth, and Brett Kressley in fifth.

Thunder Notes

The four feature show was completed by 10:30 PM, the track was groomed twice throughout the night to ensure optimal racing conditions.

Davey Sammons pulled off early in the make-up feature event, the team went to work changing the motor prior to the heat race – which Sammons claimed the win over Brent Marks and Stevie Smith. Sammons finished 9th in the A-Main.

Stevie Smith picked up his first ever Grandview Speedway victory – his father, Steve Smith Sr. won the first Thunder on the Hill event in August 1990.

SUSQUEHANNA SPEEDWAY RACE RESULTS

STEVE FANNASY BECOMES EIGHTH DIFFERENT SUPER SPORTSMAN WINNER WITH SUSQUEHANNA WIN

Randy Christine, Jr. Repeats in 358 LM; Travis McClelland Legends Winner and Chris Anderson Tops Road Warriors

By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway YORK HAVEN, PA 7/23/16

Steve Fannasy added his name to the list of winners this season in Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman competition at Susquehanna Speedway.

The Dauphin, PA racer became the eighth different winner in ten Super Sportsman features this year after leading the second half of Saturday night’s 25-lap feature.

Fannasy and Justin Foster led the Sportsman field to the green as Foster grabbed early control of the event. Foster would lead the first 11 circuits before encountering trouble on the 12th lap when he hit the fourth turn wall to bring out a caution.

That turned the lead over to Fannasy, who then kept the field at bay over the final 13 laps to take his first win of the season aboard his own No. 11.

New Jersey racer Tom Wyckoff started fourth and finished in the runner-up spot ahead of sixth starting Chad Smith, 11th starting Scott Dellinger and fifth starting Rick Barr.

Chad Criswell crossed sixth after starting 14th with Tony Jackson seventh ahead of 16th starter Russ Mitten, Doug Dodson and Jay Fannasy.

Heats for the 28 Super Sportsman were won by Teddy Thomas, Steve Fannasy and Justin Foster.

Manchester’s Randy Christine, Jr. made it two straight wins in 358 Late Model action as he sped to the win in the 25 lap event.

Christine started third but led flag to flag and held on through five caution periods during the feature.

Following Christine under the checkers were Dave Latsha, 13th starter Chase Billet, 18th starting Randy Stoudt and 12th starting Troy Miller with Travis Mease, Sam Gallagher, Matt Murphy, Patrick McClane and Steve Billet rounding out the top 10 finishers.

Donnie Farlling, Gallagher and Latsha were heat race winners. Farlling turned the wheel of his late model over to Jake Jones for the feature event.

Travis McClelland took the lead on lap three of the ServiceMaster Clean Central PA Legends 20 lap feature and scored the feature win over Hayden Pascoe, Scott Houdeshell, Reed Salony and Rick Hartwig.

Salony and Mason Chaney won heats for the 18 car field.

Chris Anderson led all 15 laps of the non stop Road Warrior feature to become the fourth different winner in as many races. He was followed by Justin Wagaman, Travis Brown, Robbie Carroll and Jeff Skenosen.

Anderson and Carroll won heats for the 16 Road Warriors.

Eric Tomacek of Abbottstown and Mark Smith of Sunbury split the victories in the 25-lap sprint car races, while Coleby Frye of Dover won his first race of the year in the 25-lap Moon Shine Camo Route 35 Late Model Challenge Series. NASCAR veteran David Stremme of Davidson, N.C., drove to a victory in the first-ever 20-lap Mid-Atlantic modified series race, with Kurt Wray of Beavertown posting his first career pro stock win in the division’s 15-lap feature.

Selinsgrove Speedway will present the 16th Annual Mach 1 Chassis National Open for 360 sprint cars Saturday, July 30, paying $10,000 to win as part of the inaugural Mid-Atlantic Crown Series “Weekend of Money” that includes the Lelands.com 360 Nationals at Williams Grove Speedway Friday, July 29, and concludes with the Cole Cup at the Utica Rome Speedway in New York Sunday, July 31. The super late models and pro stocks will also be on the July 30 racing card at Selinsgrove Speedway.

Eric Parker took the lead early in the makeup feature for the 360 Sprint Cars. The race was being run from the Jeff's Auto Body & Recycling Center Driver & Fan Appreciation Night July 16th. Michael Walter wrestled the top spot away from Parker on lap six. Eric Tomecek also moved by Parker for the second spot a few laps later. Mark Smith was in a battle for the third spot when his engine left go setting up a lap 17 restart.

Just before the yellow flag Tomecek used the inside line to drive into the top spot. Robbie Stillwagon took over the second spot in a short run before another yellow flag was needed. Stillwagon tried the inside line on the restart, but Tomecek drove back into the race lead on the outside to stay for good. Davie Franek moved past Stillwagon for second at the end of the event. Jason Shultz and Walter rounded out the top five finishers.

Sixth through tenth place spots went to TJ Stutts, Adam Carberry, Derek Locke, Ryan Kissinger, and Eric Parker. Ryan Kissinger was the race’s IBEW hard charger. Kissinger went from 22nd to finish in ninth.

The 360 Sprint cars competed in a full show after the makeup feature was completed. The Newville Family of Companies bonus was again on the line for 358 Sprint Car teams going into the night as well. Mallie Shuster started from the front row and showed the way early on. Adam Carberry reeled in the race leader in lap traffic, but then tangled with a lap car ending his bid for the win.

Eric Parker had his 358 engine in on Saturday night and Parker was in a battle for the lead with Mallie Shuster on lap 13 when Shuster was in lap traffic. Parker slide a little too high on the race track and Davie Franek slid by. Franek's time in the podium spot was short lived as his right rear tire blew out.

Shuster continued to show the way with Parker and 11th place starter Mark Smith now in the mix. Smith worked by Parker and looked like he was out of time to take the race lead away until a lap 22 yellow flag was thrown. Smith used a swooping move on the front stretch to take away the top spot from Shuster on the restart and drive to his third win of the season. This was the final race before next weekend’s $10,000-to-win National Open for the 360 Sprint Cars. Shuster, Derek Locke, Larry Kelleher, and TJ Stutts were the top five finishers.

Jason Shultz, Eric Parker, Robbie Stillwagon, Mike Walter, and Ryan Kissinger rounded out the top ten. Eric Tomecek, Ryan Kissinger, and Mallie Shuster were the heat race winners for the 27 car field. The IBEW hard charger for the second feature was Phil Walter.

Coleby Frye had revenge on his mind when he pulled into Selinsgrove Speedway on Saturday night in round four of the Moon Shine Camo Route 35 Challenge Series. Frye almost grabbed a win the last time the Late Models had a Route 35 Challenge Series ace at the track, but fell a little short. The story was written a little different on Saturday night.

Frye made a big move on the outside early and began chase of race leader Tony Adams. Adams led until lap 18 when Frye made a move on what he called in victory lane the only mistake Tony Adams made all night. Once out front Frye fended off all challengers including a late race charge from Andrew Yoder. Jeff Rine got to the third spot, but could only watch the leaders drive away as he lost a right rear tire at the end of the feature running third. Frye, Yoder, Donnie Schick, Adams, and Mike Lupfer were the top five finishers.

Bryan Bernheisel came across in sixth just ahead of Rine who entered the night the Moon Shine Camo Route 35 points leader. Steve Campbell, Dave Brouse Jr, and Chad Hollenback were the top ten across the finish line. Andrew Yoder, Donnie Schick, and Tony Adams won heat races for the field with Derrick Casner the consolation winner.

David Stemme used a dominate run to claim the first checkered flag for the Mid Atlantic Modifieds ever at Selinsgrove Speedway. Stremme started in the eighth spot and charged into the race lead on lap four. A caution flag on lap seven reset the field, but Stremme pulled away again when the green flag was thrown. Modified point leader Mike Potosky pulled into second before the yellow flew again on lap 15. Potosky slowed and dropped out on lap 18 as Stremme drove to the win. Rick Hulson was second followed by Dan Davies, Gary Long, and Mike Reynolds. Heat races for the 18 car field went to Hulson and Long.

Brandon Moser had mechanical issues in last week's A&A Auto Stores Pro Stock competition. This week he wasted no time bolting into the race lead when the green flag was thrown on the feature event. Moser slide a little too high after a few laps of leading and the lead fell into the hands of Matt Hornberger. Hornberger did not hold the hot potato long before Tommy Slanker took over. Slanker did all he could to run the inside line, but Brad Mitch was able to drive by into the top spot.

Mitch was in a good spot until the yellow flew on the last lap, setting up a one lap shootout. Mitch didn't get the start he needed and Kurt Wray drove by to lead the event. Wray was looking for his career Selinsgrove Speedway win. Although the record book will show he only led one lap, it was the most important one. Wray made the inside move by Mitch for the win. Slanker, Hornberger, Nate Stroup, and Jeff Ceballo were the top five. Mitch was sixth. He was trailed by Matt Wilson, Jeremy Kline, Lori Croop, and John Troxell. Slanker and Mitch took heat race checkered flags. 17 Pro Stocks were in completion.

Lawrence Chevrolet 410 Sprints and 360 Sprint Nationals Share Huge July 29 Card

7/24/16

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Mechanicsburg – Williams Grove Speedway will kickoff the first ever Mid Atlantic Crown for URC and ESS 360 c.i. powered sprint cars this Friday night, July 29 at 8 pm when it stages its annual 360 Sprint Nationals.

Joining the exciting 360 sprints on the Williams Grove Friday card will be the Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint cars for a 25-lap, $3,800 to win main event.

The Mid Atlantic Crown for 360 sprints is a series of three races spun off in Pennsylvania and New York that is co-sanctioned by both the URC and ESS circuits at not only Williams Grove but also at Selinsrove and Utica-Rome Speedways.

Williams Grove will kickoff the three-race, three-day series for URC/ESS on Friday night with a $4,000 to win, 25-lap main event.

There will be no time trials for the 360 sprint cars.

The appearance by the Empire Super Sprints at Williams Grove on Friday will be the first time in history that ESS has competed at the speedplant.

A display of restored racecars from the Eastern Museum of Motor Racing will be held in the infield during the night with the EMMR taking home the Williams Grove portion of the 50/50 on the night.

It is expected that a number of area 410 sprint pilots will compete in at least some if not all of the Mid Atlantic Crown series events.

At Williams Grove of course, this means that fans will get the chance to see those pilots in action twice on the same night as they also compete in Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint car action as well.

WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY
July 23, 2016
LANCE DEWEASE WINS $25,000 IN CHAMPION RACING OIL SUMMER NATIONALS AT WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY
Dewease also keeps Morgan Cup in Pennsylvania with win.
MECHANICSBURG, PA – Lance Dewease survived a caution-filled main event and running out of fuel under caution to win the Summer Nationals sanctioned by the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series at Williams Grove Speedway Saturday night.
His eighth overall win of the season in Donnie Kreitz’s No. 69K was worth $25,000, including a $5,000 bonus for the Morgan Cup held over from a rainout in May. It was his 85th career Grove win and fourth this year.
Dewease, of Fayetteville, had the race under control, but was getting low on fuel. As he was racing toward the checkered flag, a frontstretch crash brought out the caution instead. As they paced around under yellow, Dewease stopped in turn one. Officials, however, had already called for a fuel stop and Dewease maintained his lead.
“I was out of fuel six laps before that,” said Dewease. “It kept shutting off going down the straightaway. I slowed way out of the throttle to try and make it to the end. I took the white. It sputtered a little bit going up the backstretch and I thought ‘I’m good.’ We come off four for the checkered and the yellow comes out and I thought ‘man, we’re done.’”
They weren’t done, however, as they were permitted to refuel.
“I thought they’d open it up for the fuel stop the caution before that, but they didn’t,” he said. “We got it here and everything went out way tonight. This is for Davey Brown. Somebody had the nerve to act like Davey didn’t know what he was doing after the dash. I think we proved he knows what he’s doing. He’s 82 and as sharp as anybody. He works his butt off on this car.”
Daryn Pittman grabbed the lead over Joey Saldana on the initial start, but Kerry Madsen stopped on the frontstretch before a lap was completed.
On the second start, it was Saldana getting the lead over Pittman. Dewease and Greg Hodnett raced hard for third swapping the spot before Dewease secured it.
Saldana’s lead was up over two seconds with three laps completed as he closed on the back of the field.
David Gravel passed Donny Schatz and Hodnett to move into fourth as Doug Esh spun in front of the leaders in turn one with 11 laps completed.
Saldana pulled away on the restart as Dewease would take second from Pittman as they raced off turn four.
Saldana led by nearly a straightaway at the half-way point. The caution flew with 15 laps completed when Jacob Allen spun in turn three.
Saldana picked the inside for the restart and just got in front of Dewease coming off turn four. Dewease tried the bottom in turn one, but couldn’t get in front of Saldana as he blasted off the cushion. He tried a slider in turn three again, but Saldana maintained the lead.
The caution flew again on lap 17 when Paul McMahan slowed on the backstretch erasing Saldana’s 1.367 lead.
Saldana controlled the restart once again as Dewease couldn’t stay close enough to make a move for the lead.
Danny Dietrich brought out the caution flag with a frontstretch accident with 19 laps completed. Saldana led Dewease, Pittman and Hodnett for the restart.
This time, Dewease was able to get the jump on Saldana on the restart and led into turn one as other cars scrambled inside the top five, but the caution flag flew for debris.
Saldana got the jump, but Dewease stayed close as they raced into turn one. He couldn’t make the pass there, but used a third turn slider to get the lead on lap 20.
Dewease had a 1.871 second lead when Hodnett’s right rear tire blew and he stopped on the frontstretch with eight laps to go. Dewease picked the outside lane for the restart, got the jump again and began to pull away.
“I had Joey two different times almost on the top and then I did get him on the top,” explained Dewease. “I was stunned when he stayed down again. He got a little bit better run that time, but I got such a run at him I just flew him down in one and two. The car was so good in clean air. I could shorten up one and two. I didn’t need to be up on the curb getting in.”
The drama wasn’t over, however.
Saldana began to fade through the field appearing to be running out of fuel. Brent Marks got into him on the frontstretch and moved up into Aaron Ott who spun and brought out the caution as Dewease was coming for the checkered flag.
Officials decided to stop the field to refuel for a green-white-checkered finish. Dewease ran out of fuel and stopped in turn one, but since the decision had already been made to have the fuel stop, he was the leader as they went back to green for the single-file restart.
Pittman took a shot at Dewease on the restart and was under him in turn one, but couldn’t complete the slider and Dewease led off turn two.
Dewease controlled the final lap to win by 0.867 over Pittman.
“We got beat by a better car,” said Pittman. “That car has been hard to beat all year. We got one on him last night starting in front of him. He was pretty good. I finally found a decent line at the end and felt like I could at least maintain with him.”
Stevie Smith came from the 15th starting spot to finish third. David Gravel and Donny Schatz completed the top five. Alan Krimes, Brad Sweet, Freddie Rahmer, Kerry Madsen and Cory Haas rounded out the top 10.
The 38-car field was split into two qualifying flights. Pittman set fast time in the first flight and overall with a lap of 17.542. Saldana set fast time in the second flight at 17.557. Pittman, Hodnett, Saldana and Dewease won the eight-lap heat races. Pittman won the dash. Doug Esh won the Last Chance Showdown.

DARYN PITTMAN WINS OPENING NIGHT OF WORLD OF OUTLAWS CHAMPION RACING OIL SUMMER NATIONALS AT WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY

MECHANICSBURG, PA – From beginning to end, Daryn Pittman controlled the Sprint car racing Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway.

He set quick time, finished second in his heat race, won the dash and then led all 25 laps to score the $8,000 win in the Summer Nationals opener. It was his seventh World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series win this season and 17th of his career at the Grove.

“I got tighter as the race went on,” said Pittman. “I don’t think I’ve ever run a curb this big at Williams Grove. I was really good for two or three laps and then I would start to feel it go away and I’d start to get tight.”

Pittman, of Owasso, Okla., started on the pole and drove into the lead. Greg Hodnett got by Aaron Ott and into second as Stevie Smith drove by Joey Saldana and into fourth.

Hodnett was closing as Pittman approached lapped traffic with seven laps completed, but the red flag stopped the race when Brad Sweet tipped over in the fourth turn. His crew made repairs and he was able to restart with top wing damage.

Pittman controlled the double-file restart as Jason Johnson shot from sixth to third. The yellow flew when Brock Zearfoss stopped on the backstretch with nine laps completed.

Hodnett looked under Pittman in turn one on the restart, but couldn’t make the pass. Lance Dewease, who started 10th, drove into the top five and moved up another spot when Ott fell off the pace and pitted.

Pittman had a comfortable lead when Williams Grove point leader Danny Dietrich slowed on lap 14 bringing out another caution.

Hodnett went after Pittman again and was inside of him in turn one on the restart. He couldn’t make the pass however as Dewease rocketed off the bottom and into third. Dewease put a big slider on Hodnett to take second as they completed lap 15.

Outlaws point leader Donny Schatz had raced into the top five from his 16th starting spot by this point. He and Johnson then made hard contact in turn four resulting in Johnson flipping and collecting Tim Shaffer. Schatz also suffered top wing damage, but never stopped and continued to race.

Dewease couldn’t make a move on Pittman on the restart and Pittman simply drove away over the final 10 laps to score the win by 0.685 over Dewease, Hodnett, Smith and Schatz. Freddie Rahmer, David Gravel, Kerry Madsen, James McFadden and Doug Esh rounded out the top 10.

“I don’t know if I’m more nervous with the 27 (Hodnett) behind me or the 69K (Dewease),” said Pittman. “Neither one of them you really want to see on the scoreboard.”

“We were really good on restarts,” said Dewease. “The top was so fast and we lost air in the right rear under that red and that got me real tight.”

The 38-car field was split into two flights for qualifying. Joey Saldana set fast time in the first flight with a lap of 17.368 seconds. Pittman set fast time in the second flight, and overall, with a lap of 17.187.

Saldana, Hodnett, Johnson and Jacob Allen won the eight-lap heat races. Pittman won the dash and Paul McMahan won the Chance Showdown.

The Summer Nationals conclude Saturday night with a 30-lap main event paying a total of $25,000 to win – including a $5,000 Morgan Cup bonus held over from the rainout in May. The Morgan Cup trophy will reside in the office of either the Outlaws or Williams Grove until next season.

OWINGS TEAM DROPS IN 358 MOTOR, WINS TRAIL-WAY SPRINT CAR FEATURE

 Miller & Marriott micro-sprint winners; Jason Chronister wins limited stocks after brother crashes; Crocker takes Classic Car feature

HANOVER, PA (7/22/2016) – Steve Owings, who has spent the entire season running a 410 sprint car, dropped a 358 cubic inch engine in the team sprint car and drove to the win in his first 2016 appearance at Trail-Way Speedway Friday night.

“I have to thank Steve Rucker for the motor and the crew for its hard work in switching this car around this week,” said Owings upon exiting his Westminster Transmission/Valentine Motorsports #35 in victory lane, “We got a lucky draw. That was a long 25 laps. I had the top wing the whole way back in the trunk, we were pushing, and I wasn’t quick enough on the restarts.”

“With my crew and Brad McClelland wrenching, any monkey could have driven this thing tonight,” continued Owings, “We love this place!”

An inversion draw put Owings on the pole for the start, and he led every lap. He crossed .81 seconds ahead of fifth-starting David Holbrook, with Dwight Leppo, 11th-starting hard charger Jeff Halligan, and Zach Euculano completing the top five. While Owings was driving away to nearly a half-lap lead by the mid-race point, five cars raced wheel-to-wheel for second through sixth.

SUNDAY, JULY 17, 2016 SUSQUEHANNA SPEEDWAY RACE RESULTS

DANNY DIETRICH SCORES THRILLING SUNDAY NIGHT SUSQUEHANNA WIN

John Barnett Notches First 305 Sprint Win

By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway YORK HAVEN, PA 7/17/16

Danny Dietrich did something no one has been able to do this season. And that was pass Lance Dewease while he was leading a feature event.

After leading the first 16 laps of Sunday nights, BAPS Coatings & Supplies 410 Sprint car feature at Susquehanna Speedway, Dietrich lost the top spot to Dewease-Central PA’s hottest driver and it would appear that Dewease would drive to yet another win aboard the Kreitz Racing sprint.

But Dietrich had other ideas.

He stayed close to Dewease as the pair worked lapped traffic and was able to pounce on the veteran driver in lapped traffic to take the lead on lap 29 and held onto to pick up his first win of the season in the BAPS series at Susquehanna aboard the Gary Kauffman Racing, Sandoes Fruit Market #48.

Dietrich, who recently captured his first career Pennsylvania Sprint Speedweek championship drew the number two starting spot after an impressive heat race effort, where he drove from 10th to second to put himself into the redraw.

After polesitter, Kyle Reinhardt spun on the opening lap, that moved Dewease to the point alongside Dietrich and the fans were in for 30 laps of entertainment from that point on.

Dietrich scored the win over Dewease with Brent Marks coming home third after driving all day after competing in the Kings Royal the night before. Lucas Wolfe finished fourth ahead of Brandon Rahmer as Brian Montieth came home sixth after starting 11th ahead of 14th starter Adam Wilt, Brock Zearfoss, Davey Sammons and Reinhardt. The top 10 cars were the only cars remaining on the lead lap.

Reinhardt, Wolfe and Marks were BAPS 410 Sprint car heat winners for the 31 car field. The consolation was won by Kyle Moody.

John Barnett led flag to flag to capture his first ever win in the PASS/IMCA 305 Sprint car 25-lap feature.

Barnett started second and held the point through the duration of the feature, despite a lap 23 yellow flag that bunched the field and put multi-time winner Tyler Reeser on his bumper.

But Barnett was able to keep Reeser at bay to score the win with Reeser, Dave Brown, Billy Ney and John Martin completing the top five finishers.

Sixth through 10th were Ryan Stillwaggon, Ken Duke, Jay Krout, Kyle Ganoe and Zach Newling.

Ney, Martin and Stillwaggon were heat race winners for the 31 305 Sprint cars while Kassidy Kreitz was the consolation winner.

Susquehanna Speedway returns to action Saturday, July 23 on Sutliff Chevrolet Night as the Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman return to the track joined by another Precise Racing Series event for the 358 Late Models, ServiceMaster Clean Central PA Legends and Road Warriors .Pits open at 4PM with grandstands opening at 5PM and Racing beginning at 7PM.

The next BAPS Coatings & Supplies 410 Sprint Car Series event will take place on Sunday night, August 21st in the Justin Snyder Salute to The Troops 30-lap, $5,000 to win event.

7/17/16

RAIN PUTS DAMPER ON DRIVER & FAN APPRECIATION NIGHT AT SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY SATURDAY

SELINSGROVE, Pa. Saturday Night marked the eighth time Jeff and Cathy Kurtz of Jeff’s Auto Body & Recycling Center in Paxinos along with Selinsgrove Speedway hosted Driver & Fan and Appreciation Night.

After all the qualifying was completed for a strong field of 360 sprint cars, super late models, pro stocks, and a makeup feature for the roadrunners from June 4, a surprise rain shower hit the speedway and halted the action at about 9:30 p.m.

Right as the track was ready for racing to continue, a second rain storm hit the speedway and the call was made to cancel the event. Then a third, much harder, rain storm hit soon after. With all the qualifying completed and the fields set to run the feature races, rain checks will not be honored. The four features will be rescheduled over the next couple of weeks. .

Saturday night’s 360 sprint car feature will be the first to get rescheduled for this coming Saturday, July 23, as part of a special night of racing that will also be highlighted by a regularly scheduled 360 sprint car race on Sunbury Eagles Club Night, plus the Moon Shine Camo Route 35 Challenge Series for super late models, the first-ever appearance by the Mid-Atlantic modifieds, and pro stocks at 7:30 p.m. Track gates will open at 5:30 p.m.

In the makeup feature for the A&A Auto Stores Roadrunners, Keith Bissinger used a late race restart to go by race long leader Ryan Leister to take the top spot. Bissinger held off Leister in a last corner battle for the win. It is his second win in a row. Leister came home in the second spot just ahead of Jason Zook. Smith Cope and Miranda Minium rounded out the top five finishers.

Heats for the 24 360 sprint cars were won by Mallie Shuster, Eric Parker, and Eric Tomecek. Qualifiers for the 20 super late models went to Tony Adams, Danny Snyder, and Gene Knaub The pro stock heats were won by Jake Buck and Matt Wilson.

Thanks to Jeff’s Auto Body & Recycling Center, ten lucky fans left with $100 cash prizes, kids participated in a Chinese auction with many great giveaways, and the first 100 fans that entered the grandstands received a free concession item. A total of $2,500 in additional purse money was sponsored for the night’s four divisions of racing by Jeff’s Auto Body & Recycling Center.

Saturday, July 30, will be the 16th annual Mach 1 Chassis 360 Sprint Car National Open plus the late models and pro stocks. The National Open is part of a big weekend of racing for the 360 sprint cars with stops at Williams Grove on Friday, July 29, and the Utica Rome Speedway on Sunday, July 31.

PRS 2016 – Racing through a new decade with a new attitude! Port Royal Speedway

The Only Place To See Super Sprints And Super Lates Every Saturday Night

Joey Hershey Gets Job Done For First Port Royal Sprints Win, Yoder Comes Out On Top In Epic Late Model Championship Battle

Twin 305 sprint mains to Miller and Reeser

7/16/16

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Joey Hershey of Chambersburg was able to hold off the advances of Mike Erdley and then stay out front of Greg Hodnett just long enough to record his first ever Port Royal Speedway 410 sprint car win on Saturday night after years of trying to pick up a checkered flag.

In the special 30-lap Summer Championship for super late models, an epic battle throughout saw Selinsgrove’s Dylan Yoder score the $3,000 payday for his second Port win of the season, in as many weeks.

Twin 305 sprint mains were taken by Jeff Miller in a make-up main held over from May while Tyler Reeser won the regularly slated main.

In other news, an open bid auction of racing memorabilia and items along with spontaneous donations to benefit recently injured driver Jake Waters netted the local pilot over $11,000.

Hershey started on the pole of the 25-lap sprint car main and took the lead on the first lap over Mike Erdley before the races only caution flag unfurled.

Erdley chased Hershey into traffic several laps later and that’s when Erdley was able to close in however he was never able to get quite close enough to complete a pass.

Hershey blasted the top groove of the track with the lead while Erdley took his stabs on the low side and with 10 laps to go, Hershey appeared headed to his first victory.

However Hodnett gained speed as the race went on after starting eighth in the field and overtook Mike Wagner for third with eight laps to go.

Steadily over the final few laps, Hodnett ran down and caught Erdley, who at the same time was keeping Hershey in sight.

Hodnett motored by on the bottom for second with under two laps to go but by that time the white flag was waving and a smart move by Hershey in traffic as he entered the first corner on the final lap sealed the deal for the quiet pilot to become the 184th driver in history to win a super sprint car main at the historic oval.

Hodnett was second followed by Erdley, Brock Zearfoss and Doug Esh.

Sixth through 10th went to Lucas Wolfe, Curt Stroup, Mike Wagner, Ryan Taylor and Dylan Cisney.

Twin heats went to Cale Grubb and Hershey.

Andy Haus started on the pole of the 30-lap super late model main and threatened to make the race a yawner during the early going, pulling away with the lead.

However a number of cautions helped keep the field bunched and allowed the cream to rise to the top.

For the first nine laps Kyle Hardy chased leader Haus before succumbing to sixth starter Dylan Yoder for the spot.

By lap 11 Yoder had run down Haus’ advantage and for the next 11 laps the pair ran virtually side by side for the lead with Haus using the top groove, forcing Yoder to work underneath.

For many laps, Yoder raced just a lane lower than Haus around the slickening oval with Haus always having just enough horsepower to keep a nose out front.

However as each lap clicked off, Yoder was able to get a little further around on Haus as the cushion kept working up the corners.

And that’s when Yoder was able to finally get the job done with seven laps to go, pulling the trigger with a low side blast into the third corner that saw him beat Haus off of the fourth corner to take the lead at the stripe.

Meanwhile, seventh starting veteran Gary Stuhler played the race slow and steady using his favored inside lane and during the final five circuits, Stuhler flexed his muscle, biting fast to get ahead of Haus for second.

However Yoder was by then pulling away for the victory to take the win by 4.163 seconds.

Haus held on for third followed by Kyle Hardy and Kenny Moreland.

Sixth through 10th went to Coleby Frye, Billy Wampler, Nick Dickson, Trent Brenneman and Patrick Bryner.

Heats for the 31-car field went to Mike Lupfer, Stuhler, Yoder and Troy Swindell. Bryner scored the consolation event.

Jeff Miller of Huntingdon led flag to flag to win the make up 305 sprint feature.

Mark Watkins moved up from fourth starting spot to claim second followed by point leader Nate Gramley, John Martin and Drew Ritchie.

The regularly slated 305 sprint main saw Tyler Reeser take the lead from Ken Duke Jr. on the fourth lap to run to the win.

Mike Kiser secured second from Duke on the eighth tour while Duke raced third to the finish line.

Jeff Miller and John Martin completed the top five.

Heats went to Miller, Duke and Mike Alleman.

DIETZ OUTRUNS DIETRICHS FOR SECOND CAREER LINCOLN 410 SPRINT CAR WIN;

Mitten claims fourth career Lincoln Super Sportsman victory; Stough comes from 12th to win Central PA Legends

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 7/16/2016 –Chase Dietz outran the Dietrichs to pick up his first win of the year in his family-owned #2D in 25 laps of torrid 410 sprint car racing at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

“I’m out of breath. Holy crap!” exclaimed Dietz after exiting the Haas Shocks/Godfrey Racing sprinter in victory lane, “We were okay. We weren’t the fastest, but the way the track was, we just had to be up there and wheel it.”

Dietz started third and ran there behind leader Billy Dietrich and polesitter Tim Wagaman for the first eight laps. The lone red then came out for Dwayne Gutshall, who did a soft roll after getting sideways in turn two.

“It just worked out for us. I got by Timmy and that red came out,” said Dietz, “I didn’t get a good restart, and Robbie (Kendall) got me and I got him back. I was like ‘Man, I gotta get back up the wheel real quick.’

“I was staying with Bill. I would gain and then lose and I figured once we got to lapped traffic it was time to get going and make my move. It worked out to our favor. I knew from Billy’s standpoint I wouldn’t want to be in the same position because you’re kinda vulnerable out there. He had a good run and has had some bad luck. It was a fun race for sure.”

Dietz finally drove around Dietrich exiting turn two in heavy lapped traffic of lap 21. The two were side-by-side at the end of the lap, but Dietz didn’t take control until exiting turn two of lap 22. From there, he drove away to his second career Lincoln win, with Billy and 12th-starting Danny Dietrich crossing second and third. Completing the top five were Kendall and Tyler Ross.

“This has been a really tough season for us. We get here when we can,” said Dietz, “It’s a family-owned team and there are a ton of people I can’t thank enough that even allow me to be here. Troy Godfrey has poured his heart and soul into me right now and supplies the car for me to even be able to get out here. My grandpa has given us a motor to run. What we have sitting here is what we got, and that’s it. But we come here to win.”

Sixth through tenth were Gerard McIntyre, Jr., Freddie Rahmer, points leader Alan Krimes, Brian Montieth, and Adam Wilt.

Heats for the 34 410 Sprints were won by McIntyre, Dietz, Cory Haas, and Billy Dietrich, with Frankie Herr winning the consolation.

Newville’s Russ Mitten, now in his 27th year of racing, ended a month-long dry spell by claiming his fourth career Lincoln win in the 25-lap super sportsman feature. Mitten started third and took the top spot away from polesitter and race-long leader Gregg Foster on lap seven. He dominated the rest of the way, taking the checkered 2.15 seconds ahead of Foster, with Doug Dodson, 11th-starting Mike Enders, and Scott Geesey rounding out the top five.

Heats for the 25 Super Sportsman were won by Dodson, Kenny Edkin, and Scott Dellinger.

Bob Stough came from 12th starting spot to score his sixth career Lincoln win in the 20-lap main event for the Central PA Legends. Stough was passing a car a lap in the late going, and drove around both Lucas Montgomery and leader Mason Chaney as the three crossed under the flag stand with two laps to go. Chaney settled for second, with Chad Earnst, Montgomery, and Harlon Leppo completing the top five.

Heats for the 30 Central PA Legends were won by Leppo, Justin Mitchell, and Reed Salony, with Tony Mrakovich winning the consolation.

Next Saturday night, July 23rd, Lincoln Speedway will be dark as the headline 410 Sprint division will be off racing the World of Outlaws at area tracks.

Then in 2 weeks, Saturday, July 30th, Lincoln will be back in action with PEPSI NIGHT on York County Racing Club Night featuring the 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints, and 358 Late Models. Gates will open at 5:30 PM, with racing getting underway at 7:30 PM.

Dewease Primed Again For Outlaws Invasion, Claims 4K Williams Grove Outlaws Tune Up

Doug Hammaker wins 358 sprints from 10th

7/15/16

Mechanicsburg – Lance Dewease served notice he is as ready now as he was in May for the impending invasion by the World of Outlaws sprint cars at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night by claiming another tune up event just one week before the outlaws hit town for the Summer Nationals.

In May, Dewease won the tune up and returned a week later to thwart the outlaws at the Grove and he’s now set to defend the local turf again after his flag to flag performance on Friday night to record a $4,000 payday, the 85th victory of his career at the oval.

In the 358 sprint main, Doug Hammaker came forwart from 10th starting spot to claim his first victory of the season at the track.

Dewease earned the pole for the start of the 25-lap sprint car feature and was never tested for the victory.

The Fayetteville flyer took off when the green flag dropped with second starter Stevie Smith in tow.

The leaders hit the backmarkers on the sixth tour and Dewease moved freely around the speedway to work the traffic including an electric move on the 11th tour when he blasted right between Frankie Herr and Joe Trenca upon entering the third turn while never skipping a beat with his thread-the-needle move.

The races only caution flag unfurled with 11 laps to go, wiping out a 2.6 second lead built by Dewease over Smith.

Smith tried to stay close to Dewease on the restart but the six-time track champion steadily pulled away lap after lap to run to the win, taking the checkers by 1.4 seconds while working traffic.

Smith held off a few challenges by Greg Hodnett for the second spot with Hodnett settling for third.

Freddie Rahmer and Danny Dietrich rounded out the top five finishers.

Sixth through 10th went to Alan Krimes, Lucas Wolfe, Doug Esh, Cory Haas and Aaron Ott.

Heats went to Dewease, Wolfe and Ott.

Dewease set the fast time with a lap of 16.865 seconds and earned the pole for the main by winning the dash.

Eric Parker led from the start of the 20-lap 358 sprint main with Rich Eichelberger chasing him for the win.

Parker was stout for the first dozen laps of the race, getting away from the field before beginning to struggle in the corners during the later stages.

After starting outside the fifth row, Doug Hammaker moved into fourth with six laps to go before moving by Matt Findlay and Eichelberger for second with four laps to go.

Hammaker was running well around the inside of the speedway and used that lane to net the lead and win with three laps to go.

Parker held on for a career best Grove finish of second followed by Findlay, Chandler Leiby and Adrian Shaffer.

Sixth through 10th went to Eichelberger, Phil Walter, Kevin Nouse, Chad Trout and David Holbrook.

Heats went to Parker, Leiby and Nouse with Jared Esh taking the consolation race.

BRENT MARKS RACES TO VICTORY AT TRAIL-WAY SPEEDWAY
Track Hosts First 410 Sprint Car Show in a Decade
PA Sprint Car News | Justin Snyder
Hanover, PA| July 11, 2016

After a decade away from 410 Sprint car racing, Trail-Way Speedway returned Sunday night with one of the most exciting shows of the 2016 season. The Hanover, PA bull ring stood as the second stop of the 410 Sprint Car Shootout Series and hosted 23 contenders for the Armin Hostetter Memorial, which paid out $3500 to the winner, Brent Marks.
The Myerstown, PA native started ninth and held off a surging Brian Montieth to capture the night's "Hard Charger" Award and the 25-lap feature's checkered flag in front of a packed grandstand for his second victory of 2016.
“This race was awesome. I hope we get to run here more than once next year,” said Marks, referring to the decade-long absence of 410 racing at the track.
Tyler Ross and Justin Barger held the front row at the drop of the green flag with Barger taking an early lead, but a multi-car accident in turns one and two slowed the field before any laps were completed and brought everyone back to their original starting spots for a full restart.
Barger, who was running a cylinder down after engine issues in his heat race, took the early lead again, and Marks began his trek to the front by moving into sixth place by the completion of lap one and into the top-five the following circuit.
Another multi-car accident slowed the field with two laps completed and after the restart, Marks, driving the BAPS Auto Paints and Supply/M&M Painting and Construction #19M, used the outside line in turns three and four to pass Kyle Moody and Rodney Westhafer for the third position. Six laps later, still riding the cushion, he overtook Ross for second and began to set his sights on the leader.
Barger, making only his second career trip to the speedway since he captured the inaugural Kevin Gobrecht Memorial in 1999, began to catch lap traffic and withstood Marks attempts to pass over the next few laps before the field slowed for a caution for debris.
Barger once again got out to a quick start following the restart and set the pace over the next several laps. Meanwhile, Montieth began making his march to the front by passing Westhafer for fourth on lap 12 and getting by Ross on lap 16 for third. On lap 20, with the top three all under a blanket, Marks used a lap car to get by Barger exiting turn two to take the lead. Montieth took the runner-up spot three laps later and set up a shootout over the final two laps to the checkered flag.
Marks, who cut his teeth running micro-sprints at the 1/3 mile dirt track, was able to position a slower lap traffic car between himself and Montieth to thwart off any attempt at a pass on the final lap and capture the victory. He also took home an extra 300 dollars as the night's hard charger with the bonus check being presented by the Beer Hill Gang.
“I’m 25 and still learning, “said Marks, who recently switched to running Maxim Chassis. “I’m learning more about the car, but more importantly I’m learning more about myself.”
Barger held on for third, while Danny Dietrich charged from 11th to finish fourth, and Ross completed the top five.
The 410 Sprint Car Shootout series will conclude July 17th at Susquehanna Speedway. Coming off a 2016 Pennsylvania Speedweek championship victory, Danny Dietrich will enter the final event as the Shootout series points leader.

Marks also received the $300 hard charger bonus from the Beer Hill Gang after coming from ninth starting spot to catch race-long leader Justin Barger exiting turn two of lap 20 and holding off eighth-starting Brian Montieth by five carlengths at the end.

“I’m 25 and still learning,” added Marks after exiting his BAPS Auto Paints & Supply/M&M Painting & Construction #19M in victory lane, “I’m learning more about the car…but more importantly, I’m learning more about myself.”

A redraw for the first four finishers of each heat put Marks on the inside of row five for the start. He advanced past Montieth for sixth by the end of the first lap, drove around both Kyle Moody and Rodney Westhafer for third on lap three, took second from Tyler Ross on lap eight, and then tracked down Barger for the lead 12 laps later.

Montieth took the runner-up spot from Barger on lap 23 and quickly closed on Marks. But the former micro-sprint driver with Trail-Way experience used a lapped car to block the lap 24 challenge of Montieth, scoring his first career Trail-Way 410 sprint win.

Third through fifth were Barger (who had won in his only other Trail-Way appearance in the inaugural Kevin Gobrecht Memorial 17 years ago), 11th-starting Danny Dietrich, and Ross. Sixth through tenth were Westhafer, J.B. Cunningham (in a 358 sprint car), Kyle Moody, Gerard McIntyre, Jr., and Glenndon Forsythe.

“This race was awesome,” said Marks of the 410 sprinters’ first appearance at Trail-Way since July 16, 2006, “I hope they run here more than once next year.”

Qualifiers for the 23 “410” sprint cars were won by Steve Owings, Marks, and Westhafer.

Mike Bittinger was the Hoosier Tire hard luck award winner when he spun on the back stretch and dropped from the field on lap nine of the feature.

The 410 Sprint Car “Shootout” series concludes next Sunday night, July 17th, at Susquehanna Speedway. Danny Dietrich will enter the final “Shootout” race as the series points leader.

Garrett Bard of Wells Tannery, PA drove to the win in night number two of the 600cc micro-sprint Linda’s Speedway/Trail-Way/Path Valley Shootout series.

Bard started eighth and took the lead from Travis Scott on a lap nine restart, driving away to a 3.12-second win. Scott, Brad Weber, hard charger Hayden Miller (who came from 21st starting spot), and Trail-Way points leader Jim Young completed the top five.

Heats for the micros were won by Young, Scott, and Dylan Norris (his first ever TW checkered flag).

The 600 micro “Shootout” series ends at Path Valley Speedway this coming Saturday night.

Next Friday, July 15th, Trail-Way is back in action with the 358 Late Models. Joining the Late Models will be the Limited Stocks, Street Stocks, Mason-Dixon 270 Micro Sprints and the PAMS Mini Stocks. Gates open at 5:30 p.m., with heats beginning at 7:45 p.m.

The following Friday night, July 22nd, Trail-Way Speedway will host the Hoosier Tire Mid-Atlantic 358 Sprint Cars along with the Limited Stocks, Mason-Dixon 270 Micro Sprints, 600 Micro Sprints and Classic Cars. Gates open at 5:30 p.m., with heats beginning at 7:45 p.m.

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY

 9 July 2016 By Michael Batz

KELLER SCORES SECOND 360 SPRINT CAR WIN OF SEASON; RINE NOTCHES 101st CAREER LATE MODEL VICTORY; SHOOP & BISSINGER TAKE PRO STOCK & ROADRUNNER CHECKERS

SELINSGROVE, Pa. -- Cody Keller of Selinsgrove has had a roller coaster of a season in the Newville Family of Companies 360 Sprint Cars. Keller won the season opener at Selinsgrove Speedway in April, but has been plagued with mechanical issues since that victory.

Keller changed all that Saturday night and took advantage of his fifth-place starting spot to get to second in a hurry at the start of the 25-lap feature at the wheel of the Keller’s Auto Body No. 99.

Colby Womer had driven to a two second lead in the time it took Keller to get to second. Womer, who was running a 358 engine in search of the 358 bonus money led until lap 13 when Keller was able to make the winning pass.

Keller immediately began to pull away from what quickly developed into a battle for second between Womer and TJ Stutts. Stutts and Mark Smith moved into podium positions as lap 20 went onto the board. Both began to reel in the race leader Keller.

Keller started to catch lap traffic on lap 22 and Stutts drove almost to his rear bumper. Both were clear of the traffic on the start of lap 24 when the white flag was in the air. Stutts made one last run deep into turn three, but Keller used the momentum off the high side of the race track to take the win in the non-stop feature event.

Stutts was second followed by the point leader Mark Smith. Womer was the highest finishing 358 Sprint in fourth with Troy Betts rounding out the top five. Jason Shultz was sixth followed by Michael Walter, Derek Locke, Davie Franek, and Ryan Kissinger. Colby Womer, Michael Walter, and Mallie Shuster were all first time heat winners for the 2016 season for the 360 Sprinters. The night’s IBEW Local 1319 Electrical Union hard charger was Smith.

Hayes Mattern looked to be a lock for the win in the Jeff's Auto Body and Recycling Center 25-lap Late Model feature as he had a five second lead on lap 20. Mattern got into the second turn wall and his race ended on lap 21 handing the race lead over to Derrick Casner.

Casner was in search of his first win in the Late Models while the new runner up Jeff Rine looked for his 101st victory at the speedway. Casner run the inside line for all its worth on the remaining laps but opened the door for Rine off of turn four coming to the white flag.

Rine grabbed the first spot and held it for the final trip leading only one full lap the entire race. Rine took the win over Luke Hoffner, Chad Hollenbeck, Jason Smith, and Steve Campbell. Danny Snyder was sixth followed by Donnie Schick, Matt Cochran, Tim Wilson, and Austin Berry. Danny Snyder, Tony Adams, and Jeff Rine all claimed heat race wins.

Bill Conrad took the lead early in the A&A Auto Stores Pro Stock feature race. Conrad led until Andrew Shoop snuck by out of turn four to take the race lead for good. Two-time winner AJ Hoffman worked his way into the runner up spot but never caught the race leader and eventual winner Shoop of Mifflintown.

Tommy Slanker took over third on lap nine and stayed there until the checkered flag. Brad Mitch and John Troxell rounded out the top five finishers. Sixth through tenth went to Conrad, Nate Stroup, Matt Wilson, Brandon Moser, and Matt Hornberger. Heat race wins were taken by Slanker, Mitch, and Hoffman.

Keith Bissinger of Orangeville returned to victory lane at Selinsgrove Speedway in the A&A Auto Stores Roadrunners. It was Bissinger's first win of the season while point leader and two-time winner Dustin Snook kept him honest coming to the checkered flag.

Snook dove under Bissinger in the final corner coming to the checkered flag. Bissinger had just enough to hold off Snook who finished in second. Brian Johnson was third and right on the leader's heels coming to the checkered flag. Tom Underwood and Butch Shaffer finished inside the top five as well.

Selinsgrove Speedway will present the annual Jeff’s Auto Body & Recycling Center Driver & Fan Appreciation Night at 7:30 Saturday, July 16, featuring the 360 sprint cars, super late models, pro stocks, and roadrunners. Track gates will open at 5:30 p.m. The roadrunners will also run the makeup feature from June 4.

SATURDAY, JULY 9, 2016 SUSQUEHANNA SPEEDWAY RACE RESULTS

TYLER REESER SCORES SECOND SUSQUEHANNA 305 SPRINT CAR WIN Randy Christine, Jr. Gets First LM win: Road Warrior Finish Unofficial

By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway YORK HAVEN, PA 7/9/16

Putting yourself into the right position to take advantage is a big part of racing.

Tyler Reeser was in the right place at the right time in Saturday night’s PASS/IMCA 305 Sprint car feature at Susquehanna Speedway and parked his No. 5T sprint car in victory lane.

As the 305 Sprint cars lined up for a last lap restart, leader Dave Brown’s race car did not come up to power as Reeser and two other cars drove by and it was Reeser who was able to bring it under the checkered flag for his second win of the season at the York Haven oval.

Stephanie Dodson led the first lap of the 25-lap 305 Sprint car main before giving way to fellow front row starter Brown. Brown held the point through numerous caution periods and was the leader when the field went under yellow on the 24th lap.

Unfortunately for Brown, the win wasn’t meant to be following the restart as he faded to fourth behind winner Reeser, of Orwigsburg, runner-up John Martin and third place finisher Ken Duke. Kyle Ganoe completed the top five finishers after starting 12th.

Rounding out the top ten were 13th starting Drew Ritchey, John Barnett, one-time winner Jaremi Hanson, Colby Dice and 20th starter Cale Reigle.

Heats for the 31 305 Sprint cars were won by Dave Grube, Hanson and Dice while Scott Lutz was the consolation winner.

Polesitter Dan Zechman led the first 21 laps of the 358 Late Model feature before giving way to Manchester’s Randy Christine, Jr. on lap 22.

Once out front, Christine, who started seventh, was never seriously challenged as he picked up his first win of the 2016 season over Zechman, Steve Billet, Travis Mease and Jake Jones as Ralph Morgan, Jr., Dave Latsha, Cameron Benyou, Sam Rial and Daulton Bigler completed the top ten finishers.

Billet, Benyou and Morgan were heat race winners for the 22 cars pitside.

The Road Warrior feature was under review with final results expected to be released on Monday.

The track was hit by a hard rain shower during hot laps, resulting in a one hour delay.

Drivers went through the stands to collect money for injured 305 Sprint car driver Jake Waters and were able to collect $2,056 from the Susquehanna Speedway crowd. Waters was critically burned last weekend at a race at another area speedway and has undergone several skin grafts.

Susquehanna Speedway will return to action Sunday night, July 17 as the BAPS Auto Paints and Coatings 410 Sprint Series returns for its fourth event of the season on Eichelbergers U-Pull-It Night. The 410 Sprint car event will also be the final leg in the Lincoln/Trailway/Susquehanna Shootout. Joining the 410 Sprints will be the PASS/IMCA 305 Sprints. Pits open at 4PM with grandstands opening at 5PM and racing beginning at 7PM. There will be No Racing on Saturday, July 16.

Fans are reminded to check out www.susquehannaspeedway.net for the latest news and results and follow Susquehanna Speedway on Twitter and Facebook.

HODNETT CLAIMS 13TH ANNUAL WELDON STERNER MEMORIAL, KRIMES WINS FIRST NIGHT OF LINCOLN/TRAIL-WAY/SUSQUEHANNA 410 SPRNT SHOOTOUT;

Trey Hivner scores first career 358 sprint car win; Fred Cullum All-American Outlaw victor

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 7/9/2016 – Greg Hodnett added to his Central PA point series lead with his fourth Lincoln of the year and Alan Krimes scored his first checkered flag of the year and 17th career Lincoln win in the high-paying Pigeon Hills sprint car double features Saturday night.

STERNER MEMORIAL COMPLETION

Hodnett picked up where he left off back on April 30th in claiming the $6,900 top prize in the 33-lap Weldon Sterner Memorial for 410 sprinters. The northeast’s leading feature winner started fourth after drawing the four-pill for the inversion at the front of the field.

Polesitter Danny Dietrich led the first 16 laps from the pole before his motor went sour. Hodnett slid under the Sandoe’s Fruit Market/Hickory Run Orchards/Weikert’s Livestock #48 exiting turn four of lap 17, and drove away to a 1.34-second win.

“We knew that with Danny starting up front, he was going to be really tough. He’s been tough here all year. We were just fortunate enough to squeak on by,” said Hodnett after scoring his 17th overall win of 2016, “We can’t complain at all about this year. We come out and do the best we can every night, and fortunately for us, the crew keeps plugging away and giving me really good race cars. Again, I’m not the most comfortable here at Lincoln, but they give me really good race cars and even I can win I guess.”

Dietrich crossed second, followed by Alan Krimes, Freddie Rahmer, and Lucas Wolfe. Sixth through tenth were 11th-starting Brian Montieth, Ryan Smith, Brandon Rahmer, Jim Siegel, and Robbie Kendall.

Heats for the originally scheduled April 30th Sterner Memorial were won by Hodnett, Siegel, and Kendall. Fast time in time trials over the 29-car field on April 30th was Hodnett in the lelands.com/Trone Outdoor Advertising #27, who set a new one-lap track record time of 12.577-seconds (107.339 MPH). That same April 30th night, the fastest three cars had eclipsed the old track record of 12.719 seconds held by Lucas Wolfe from 2015.

REGULARLY SCHEDULED SHOW

Alan Krimes took home the $4,000 winner’s share after winning the regularly-scheduled show, which was night number-one of the Lincoln/Trail-Way/Susquehanna 410 Sprint Car Shootout.

Ryan led the first 23 laps from his pole position, before the Wayne Corini CPA/Abe Service Company #87 slid under Smith for the race-winning pass in heavy lapped traffic exiting turns three and four of the 24th lap.

“I saw Hodnett was making up ground on the bottom, and I figured it was going to lay rubber sometime during the feature,” said the 2014 Lincoln champ and current points leader in victory lane, “It was just a matter of moving down at the right time and finding it. Adam was down there, too, and we were running the 94 down. Those two guys got to racing and that’s what I needed. They slid each other and I could really gain on them when they were doing that. I finally got him after the caution came out.”

“Ryan’s a good racer and he moved down and got away from me a little bit,” said Krimes, “But when we got lapped cars, he tried to go around one of them and I was close enough with a real small strip of rubber there. He missed it and started humming, and that was opening I needed to sneak back by him.”

Krimes pulled away from Smith to take the checkered flag 1.44 seconds ahead of the Warko #94. Third through fifth were Hodnett, Adam Wilt, and Danny Dietrich.

Rounding out the top ten were Cory Haas, Tim Wagaman, Freddie Rahmer, Jim Siegel, and Scott Fisher.

Heats for the 32 410 Sprints on hand for the regularly scheduled show were won by Haas, Smith, Krimes, and Gerard McIntyre, Jr. winning the consolation.

Fast time in time trials for the regularly scheduled show was set again by Hodnett with a one-lap time of 13.433-seconds (100.499 MPH).

358 SPRINTS

For the fourth time this year, Lincoln saw a first-time 358 sprint car career winner, as rookie Trey Hivner of Hanover grabbed the lead from polesitter and race-long leader Brian Allman on lap 15 and score the 1.69-second win.

Third through fifth behind Hivner and Allman were Tyler Esh, Dalton Dietrich, and 11th-starting Matt Campbell.

Heats for the 34 358 Sprints on hand were won by CJ Tracy, Esh, Chris Arnold, and Adrian Shaffer, with Doug Hammaker winning the consolation.

ALL AMERICAN OUTLAWS

Fred Cullum took advantage of an 18th-lap caution to close onto the back bumper of race-long leader Bryan Green and make the race-winning pass on the restart following the event’s only caution flag.

Green settled for second, with Justin Cullum, Jim Minter, and Tim Fake completing the top five.

Heats for the 13 All American Outlaws were won by Green and Fred Cullum.

Esh Wins Port Royal Sprint Car Barnburner Over Marks, Yoder Wires For Late Models

Ranck and Zook win stock cars

Sprint Drivers Swing For Fences In Thrilling Event!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

7/9/16

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Doug Esh of Lancaster turned back the challenges of Brent Marks to win the 25-lap sprint car feature at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night in a high-wire performance that found the front runners bouncing off of the fences to pick up the payday.

Dylan Yoder of Selinsgrove wired the field for a win in the 22-lap super late model main, besting point leader Andy Haus for his second oval win of the season.

Elsewhere, Harold Ranck Jr. scored his first ever win in the econo late model division while Jason Zook won his first of the season in the xtreme stock division.

The barnburner of a sprint car feature found Esh and Marks sharing the front row for the start of the main event and Esh took command when the green unfurled.

On a lightning-fast extreme top groove, the front-runners of Esh, Marks, Ryan Taylor and James McFadden entered the rear of the field on just the fourth lap before the races first caution flag fell with six laps completed.

Another yellow flag with nine laps away again bunched the field however the final 16 laps would go non-stop with thrilling moves and saves the name of the game by Esh, Marks, Taylor and McFadden.

With the circling of every tour both Esh and Marks tried to go higher and higher around the speedplant only to each spend their fair share of time meeting the outside wall in the first and second turns.

Esh was first to clout the outside wall in the second turn and ride it just briefly before regaining his composure.

Marks took his shot at the outside fence next but perhaps Taylor got he biggest chunk of the steel as he hopped along the biggest part of the fence in the same corners before dropping back down to stay under power.

Meanwhile McFadden was swooping high and low around the track, pulling what he later described as “quarter-mile moves on a half-mile racetrack,” to contend for the top spots.

Esh was the class of the field despite his brushes with defeat and that included three stabs by Marks for the win.

With under 10 laps to go, Marks got close enough to pull a daring slide job attempt in the first and second turns only to see Esh overcome using his momentum.

But not to be outdone, Marks came down off of the top as he blasted onto the backchute and while Esh went to the outside of a lapped car, Marks swerved left and went three-wide with Esh and the backmarker as the trio raced past the scoreboard.

Marks tried to beat Esh into the corner on the low side heading into turn three but Esh slammed into the corner first to thwart the effort.

Moments later, Esh nearly crashed out while putting Trenton Schaeffer a lap down in the first turn after the pair made contact with Esh hopping over Schaeffer’s left front.

All the top drivers raced on the ragged edge all the way to the finish with McFadden perhaps pulling off the most brazen moves during the last eight laps to finally get by Taylor for third and his first podium finish since taking over the reigns of the Highland’s No. 3 machine.

Esh’s margin of victory for his first oval win of the season was .652 seconds over Marks, McFadden, Taylor and Brock Zearfoss.

Sixth through 10th went to Curt Stroup, Dylan Cisney, Blane Heimbach, Mike Wagner and Kody Lehman.

Heats went to Stroup and Taylor with Cisney setting overall fast time with a lap of 17.466 seconds.

Dylan Yoder took the lead from the second starting spot when the super late model main began and he would drive uncontested to the win going away.

Trent Brenneman chased Yoder in second for the first 11 laps before fifth starter Haus was able to drive by for the spot.

But Brenneman did challenge to reclaim the position only to later finish a solid third.

Yoder pulled away consistently during all 22 laps, pulling out to a final margin of 8.402 seconds at the finish while lapping up to 10th place on the field.

Coleby Frye was fourth at the finish followed by Dan Stone, who started on the pole.

Sixth through 10th went to Billy Wampler, Gary Stuhler, Mike Lupfer, Jason Schmidt and Rick Singleton.

Heats went to Frye, Yoder and Stone with Dave Brouse Jr. claiming the consolation race.

Brenneman set fast time with a lap of 19.008 seconds.

Harold Ranck Jr. would lead all 15 laps of the econo late model main to win over Ryan Walls.

Walls got around Chase Bowsman for second on the ninth tour.

Tim Krape finished third, taking the spot on the 10th tour.

Shaun Miller and Tim Fedder completed the top five.

Heats went to Fedder and Bowsman.

Jason Zook scored his first xtreme stock feature of the season, wiring the field for his win.

Bill Powell started fifth and took second from Deron Henry on the 11th circuit.

Kevin Imes finished third followed by Austin Johnson and Charlie Bryner.

DIETRICH CLINCHES FIRST PA SPEEDWEEK SPRINT CAR TITLE WITH SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY VICTORY SUNDAY NIGHT

SELINSGROVE, Pa. -- Danny Dietrich of Gettysburg started from the front row looking to claim his first PA Speedweek title in Sunday's 30-lap Jan Opperman/Dick Bogar Memorial Speedweek finale at Selinsgrove Speedway. Dietrich and second-place points driver Greg Hodnett traded off six point advantages after time trials and heat races were completed going into the championship race.

Dave Blaney was the night's Fast Tees Fast Qualifier and led the field to the green flag in the night's $5,000-to-win feature event. Dietrich wasted no time jumping into the race lead from his second starting spot and led lap one. Greg Hodnett quickly worked his way back into the thick of the battle going by Blaney for the second spot on a lap three restart.

Brent Marks was also on the move working into the top five on the restart and soon passed Blaney for the third spot. Lucas Wolfe mounted a charge back to the front of the field during the green flag run. Dietrich was soon in lap traffic and his challenge grew as his throttle spring broke on his car. Hodnett began to close in on the leader on lap 19 as Dietrich tried to maneuver around the tail end of the lead lap cars.

Wolfe went by Marks on lap 20 and closed in on Hodnett on lap 21. At that point in the race the top four on the speedway were the top four in PA Speedweek points with Dietrich leading Hodnett, Wolfe, and Marks. Then Marks blew a tire on lap 22 to bring out the yellow flag. Hondett would get the restart he was hoping for behind Dietrich. Hodnett began to apply pressure right away on Dietrich, but Dietrich remained unshaken and began to drive away as Blane Heimbach drove by Wolfe into the top three.

Dietrich pulled away to the win. Much like Stevie Smith did a year ago, Dietrich clinched the Speedweek crown with a win in the finale. Hodnett was second followed by Heimbach. Wolfe and 13th place starter Aaron Ott were the top five finishers. Blaney came across the line in sixth followed by Ryan Smith, Doug Esh, Steve Buckwalter, and Tim Shaffer.

The Pa Sprint Series 305 Sprint Car feature was to follow the 410 Sprint race. Dave Brown took the race lead at the start and was leading when driver Jake Waters was involved in a wreck in turn one that resulted in a fire. Waters was extricated from his car and transported to the Lehigh Valley Medical Center with undisclosed injuries.

Because the Purple K extinguisher formula used to put out the fire was nearly depleted and with the speedway surface saturated with racing fuel, the balance of the racing program was ended by track and safety officials.

The 15-lap Pro Stock feature will be made up at a later date.

This Saturday, July 9, Selinsgrove Speedway will present the rescheduled PEPSI Pack The Track Night featuring $5 general admission for a four division racing program of 360 sprint cars, super late models, pro stocks, and roadrunners at 7:30 p.m. This Saturday will also be Kids Night with a kids carnival and bicycle, big wheels, and power wheels racing on the front stretch.

 DJ Myers wires Topless 40 Late Model Main while Mike Potts Scores Street Stock Win

By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway YORK HAVEN, PA 7/2/16

Scott Geesey was the class of the field in Saturday night’s Super Sportsman Firecracker 40 presented by Dellingers Auto Body at Susquehanna Speedway.

By virtue of a four car invert from time trials, Scott Dellinger lined up on the pole for the 40 lap event and set the pace through the first 25 laps.

Geesey, of Wellsville, PA grabbed the top spot with 26 laps complete and was able to keep the field at bay to score his second win of the season and also strengthened his track point lead aboard his Credit Connection Auto Sales/Silver Lake Inn/Kreitzer Excavating/Thomans LLC/Sprint Aces #41.

Chad Criswell, who lined up alongside Dellinger on the front row came home in the runner-up position with Dellinger settling for third spot over eighth starting Frankie Herr and 12th starting Rich Eichelberger.

Completing the top ten finishers were Mike Enders, Tony Jackson, Gregg Foster, Chad Smith and last week’s winner Devin Beidel. Smith earned the Hard Charger Award for advancing from 18th starting spot.

Gregg Foster set a new one lap track record in time trials with a lap of 16.712 seconds.

Twin qualifying races were won by Russ Mitten and Beidel. There were 31 Super Sportsman in competition.

Myers dominated the 40 lap main event, leading flag to flag to take home the $2,000 payday in his first ever Susquehanna feature win. He became the third different late model winner this season.

Randy Christine, Jr. finished second ahead of eighth starting Gene Knaub, Shaun Jones and Sam Gallagher with Derike Quade, Bobby Beard, Dan Zechman, Charlie Potts and Kyle Lear rounding out the top ten finishers. Jakes Jones was the Hard Charger from 24th to 13th.

Three-time winner Randy Stoudt paced the 29-car field in time trials with a lap of 18.049 seconds.

Late Models heats were won by Myers, Knaub and Lear with Matt Nailor taking ths consolation.

Four different drivers held the lead during the 20-lap street stock feature and it was Mike Potts coming out on top for his first win of the year at the track. He became the sixth street stock winner in 2016.

Matt Adams led the first two laps before giving way to Chad Stine who led until Josh Bloom took over with ten laps complete. Bloom would pull pitside during a lap 16 caution period, turning the lead back to Stine.

Potts, who started seventh took the lead on lap 18 and took the checkers over Scott Thunberg, Kevin Sigler, Stine and Ryan Smith, who started 19th.

Sean Todd finished sixth with Jimmy Combs earning the Hard Charger from from 22nd to finish seventh over Bob Scott, Jr., Steve Dove and Eric Tripp.

Wolfe Runs Middle Lane For Port Royal Speedweek Win, Dietrich Hold Series Lead

Jeff Rine Wins Moon Shine Camo Rt. 35 Series Late Models, takes second of series

Mike Goodwin claims xtreme stocks

7/2/16

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Lucas Wolfe used the middle groove to drive by leader Tim Shaffer and claim the PA Speedweek feature at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night, worth $5,000.

In the Moon Shine Camo Rt. 35 Dirt Late Model Challenge Series, Jeff Rine motored to his second win in a row in the series after taking a series event last week at Selinsgrove Speedway.

The victory was the 13th of Rine’s career at Port Royal.

Mike Goodwin won the xtreme stock feature to close out the night.

Four-time All Star titlist Tim Shaffer of Aliquippa jumped into the lead at the start of the non-stop 30-lap PA Speedweek feature over polesitter James McFadden.

Third starter Stevie Smith drove by McFadden for second on the fourth tour with fourth starter Wolfe following suit a lap later.

Shaffer approached the rear of the field by lap seven and at the same time Wolfe began slicing down the advantage that Smith had for second.

He muscled around Smith for the spot with 11 laps completed and quickly closed in on Shaffer and rather easily drove into the lead while pounding the middle lane through the first and second turns.

After getting the point in the event, no one could get close enough to challenge Wolfe for control.

Smith overtook Shaffer for second at the halfway point while eighth starter Brent Marks entered the picture at the front of the field simultaneously.

Marks took third at the same time Smith raced into second with Greg Hodnett up to fourth with 12 laps to go.

Blistering around the extreme top of the speedway, Marks was able to get by Smith for second with 10 laps to go but that’s as far as he would go in his advance.

Hodnett got by Smith for third with seven laps left but he too would advance no further at the front.

Wolfe took the checkers with a 1.373 second lead over Marks and Hodnett followed by Stevie Smith and Ryan Smith.

Sixth through 10th went to Danny Dietrich, Aaron Ott, James McFadden, Tim Shaffer and Doug Esh.

Dietrich left the event as the speedweek point leader with a 13 point lead over Hodnett for the title with just one event remaining.

Heats went to Dietrich, Marks and Hodnett with Steve Buckwalter taking the consolation.

Wolfe set quick time in time trials with a lap of 15.919 seconds.

Two-time Port Royal winner Chad Hollenbeck powered into the lead over Jeff Rine at the start of the 25-lap Moon Shine Camo Rt. 35 Dirt Late Model Challenge Series feature event.

But Hollenbeck’s pace was slowed just two laps into the race due to a spun car in the fourth turn.

Rine, Mason Ziegler, Andy Haus and Danny Snyder chased the leader on the restart.

Hollenbeck simply pulled away from Rine when action resumed and by lap nine Hollenbeck had built a 2.2 second lead over Rine as he neared the backmarkers.

With traffic in his path, Rine was able to close in on Hollenbeck on the 13th tour and just as Rine moved underneath to challenge for the lead, Hollenbeck’s motor expired, handing control to Rine.

And from that point on Rine was in control despite a brief challenge from Zeigler on the restart.

Zeigler got under Rine in the second turn and raced him onto the backchute but Rine jetted ahead into the third corner.

The pace was slowed a final time with 11 laps to go, putting Zeigler and now Dylan Yoder on the leader’s tail.

Yoder pushed by Zeigler on the restart and tried to run down Rine but some brushes with the outside wall cost Yoder late in the event as Rine took the win by 2.843 seconds over Zeigler.

Andy Haus finished third followed by Tim Wilson and Danny Snyder.

Sixth through 10th went to Dylan Yoder, Billy Wampler, Tim Smith Jr., Gary Stuhler and Hayes Mattern.

Heats went to Rine, Hollenbeck and Zeigler with Scott Flickinger claiming the consolation race.

Mike Goodwin took the lead from Pete Leister on the third lap to drive to the xtreme stock victory going.

Leister held on for second followed by Jason Zook, Corey Kepner and Bill Powell.

Nouse Signs & Graphics Summer Series

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Sat., July 9, 2016 (7:00 PM) - 13TH ANNUAL WELDON STERNER MEMORIAL for 410 Sprints, plus regular show of 410 sprints ($4,000 to win), 358 Sprints and All-American Outlaws

Sat., July 16, 2016 (7:30 PM) - JOHN GLEIM JR. EXCAVATING NIGHT: 410 Sprints, Super Sportsman, and Central PA Legends

HAMMAKER COMES FROM 19TH TO WIN NOUSE SIGNS & GRAPHICS SERIES EVENT AT LINCOLN; HANSON OUTDUELS DICE IN PASS/IMCA SPRINT FEATURE; BOWES BESTS POINTS LEADER INGLIN IN 600 XCEL MODIFIEDS

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 7/2/2016 –Social media discord and a family feud may have been among the things that inspired Doug Hammaker to score his second Lincoln win of the year in the second leg of the Nouse Signs & Graphics 358 Summer Series event on Saturday night.

“I won the Nouse series without a win last year, and I wanted one of those (tiki warrior) trophies,” said Hammaker upon exiting his Heavy Equipment Loaders & Parts #66 in victory lane, “I’ve been getting bashed pretty hard on social media that I can’t pass cars clean. I just came from 19th and I don’t think I hit anybody. Coming back from that far, you have to tip-toe, but I got my mind set.”

“We don’t run this car a lot, continued Hammaker, “Last night at Trail-Way we hurt the motor in the red car, so we changed the car around at 1:00 this afternoon. The old man ain’t here, so I kinda set it up myself…so I might have bragging rights this week.

“Dad had a family altercation today at the shop, and he decided he wasn’t coming tonight,” said Hammaker when pressed about Dale’s absence, “Hopefully, he got the grumpy pants off and got his happy face on now.”

A tenth-lap crash involving the second, third, and fourth-place cars was the only race stoppage in the 25 laps. Jake Eldreth, who was running second made contact with Matt Campbell and flew into the fourth turn catch fence. Collected in the incident was fourth-place Chris Arnold. Eldreth received a check-up from the track EMTs after complaining of head pain.

Hammaker was placed fourth for the restart, moved past Kyle Denmyer into third on lap 18, and then drove under both Kevin Nouse and race-long leader Steve Drevicki entering turn three of lap 22.

From there, he drove away to his sixth career win and the $1,200 top prize.

Second through fifth were Drevicki (in his best ever Lincoln finish), Nouse, Adrian Shaffer, and Denmyer.

Heats for the 41 358’s on hand were won by Denmyer, Jordan Givler, Shaffer, and Brent Shearer, with Phil Walter winning the consolation.

In another late-race pass for the win, Jaremi Hanson drove under Colby Dice exiting turn two of the next-to-last lap to score his first Lincoln win in the 20-lap PA Sprint Series feature event.

Hanson actually started on the pole, but yielded the top spot to fourth-starting Dice at the outset. He chased Dice the entire way before making the race-winning pass. Dice settled for second, with Rick Stief, Dave Brown, Jr., and Drew Ritchey completing the top five.

Heats for the 29 PASS/IMCA (305) Sprints on hand were won by Hanson, Zach Burd, and Stephanie Dodson.

Aaron Bowes celebrated his 23rd birthday by holding off point series leader Korey Inglin in the 20-lao Xcel Modified feature. Bowes started on the pole and led in the early going before Inglin took the lead. Bowes reclaimed the top spot at mid-race in the caution-marred event. Inglin crossed second, with Nate Brinker coming from the back after an early race spin to finish third. Richie Hitzler and Tyler Bartik rounded out the top five.

Heats for the 31 600 Xcel Modifieds on hand were won by Bowes, Brinker, and Inglin, with Bartik winning the consolation.

Next Saturday night, July 9th, Lincoln Speedway will complete the originally scheduled April 30th 13TH ANNUAL WELDON STERNER MEMORIAL for 410 Sprints, plus a complete regular show of 410 sprints, 358 Sprints and All-American Outlaws. The regular portion of the 410 show will be opening night of the 410 sprint car “Shootout,” with the other two legs to be run at Trail-Way Speedway on Sunday night (7/10) and at Susquehanna Speedway the following Sunday, 7/17.

Dietrich Pounces On Hodnett For 10K Williams Grove Mitch Smith Speedweek Win

7/1/16

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Mechanicsburg – Danny Dietrich pounced on the slightest of openings left by Greg Hodnett to steal the victory in Friday night’s PA Speedweek Mitch Smith Memorial for sprint cars at Williams Grove Speedway, worth $10,000.

Elsewhere in the PASS 305 sprint main, Aston’s Dave Brown went wire to wire for the 20-lap victory.

Greg Hodnett and James McFadden started on the front row of the 30-lap speedweek Mitch Smith Memorial with McFadden holding off Hodnett only two laps before the Spring Grove driver got by for the lead.

McFadden proved a staunch competitor however as he briefly reclaimed the lead in the first corner before pinching Hodnett down hard in the third turn in an attempt to reclaim and maintain control.

Hodnett was not to be held back however as he firmly took control with five away with fourth starter Dietrich racing third behind McFadden.

With Hodnett running the top groove, Dietrich blasted by McFadden for second on the ninth tour and then drove down Hodnett to get underneath for the lead on the first occasion as the pair raced through the first and second turns on the 11th tour.

Dietrich’s attempt on the low side however simply prompted Hodnett to move down on the racetrack and take his line away and this forced Dietrich to follow the leader as the pair hit lapped traffic with 13 laps recorded.

At the halfway point of the 30-lapper, Hodnett held sway over Dietrich, Doug Esh and McFadden.

Dietrich chased Hodnett through traffic, keeping pace with the leader as the race hit the ten to go mark and shortly thereafter, Dietrich saw an opportunity to seize command and took it with a low side dart in the third corner when Hodnett surprisingly seemed to falter or hesitate just the slightest bit.

And in the blink of an eye, Dietrich pushed his No. 48 through the opening left between Hodnett and the inside rail to drive into command and then drive away once at the front.

The races only caution flag unfurled with three laps to go for a flat right rear tire on Esh.

Dietrich drove off to the win when action resumed to take the victory, his first of the season at the oval, by 2.522 seconds.

“It was an easy decision for me,” said Dietrich to push through the hole that opened up.

“I don’t evern know if he (Hodntt) left the whole lane open but I took it,” Dietrich said.

Eighth starter Brian Montieth rode home third followed by Alan Krimes and a strong performance by McFadden.

Sixth through 10th went to Ryan Smith, Lance Dewease, Dave Blaney, Stevie Smith and Freddie Rahmer.

Heast for the 32-car field went to McFadden, Hodnett, Montieth and Dylan Cisney with Steve Buckwalter taking the consolation race.

Ryan Smith set fast time over the field with a lap of 17.603 seconds.

Dietrich leads the PA Speedweek points over Hodnett, Lance Dewease, Brent Marks and Alan Krimes with just two races left in the 2016 series.

Dave Brown wired the field for the PASS 305 sprint feature victory, his second of the season overall on the circuit.

Scott Ellerman rode home second followed by Drew Ritchie, Scott Frack and Zach Newlin.

Heats went to John Martin, Newlin, Alex Potosky and Colby Dice with Jaremi Hanson taking the consolation race.

WALTON SCORES FIRST 358 SPRINT CAR WIN AT TRAIL-WAY; Hannah Riser, Joe Long, Jr., and Mike Goodwin all claim first of-the-year wins

HANOVER, PA (7/1/2016) –Tyler Walton has ten career wins, including one this season, in the micro-sprints at Trail-Way Speedway.

But on Friday night, he scored his first career win in the 358 sprint car division.

“Wow! I don’t know what to say,” said Walton after exiting the Roger McKeehan #4R in victory lane, “We got off to such a terrible start that I thought Roger was going to get rid of me. The car has been fast. It was just waiting on the driver.”

Walton started on the outside of the front row, beat polesitter Austin Kirby to the first turn, and drove flawlessly through lapped traffic to lead every lap. Seth Kearchner ran second every lap, actually pulling alongside Walton in lapped traffic a few times. He crossed .86 seconds behind the winner, with Doug Hammaker, David Holbrook, and Jeff Halligan rounding out the top five.

Sixth through tenth were J.B. Cunningham, Dwight Leppo (who actually tipped onto his side and brought out the red flag in turn two of lap 12, but changed a flat tire and returned to the track for the restart), Kirby, hard charger Zach Euculano (who started 15th), and Dan Richcreek.

Qualifiers for the 15 sprint cars were won by Leppo and Halligan.

Lady driver Hannah Riser started on the pole and led all 20 laps of the 600cc micro-sprint feature. It was her first Trail-Way win of the year and the third of her TW career. Brad Weber crossed second, followed by Danny Jones, Jim Still, and Nash Ely.

Heats for the 14 600’s were won by Still and Travis Scott, who was among four drivers involved in a backstretch melee on lap 13 and was done for the night. Zane Rudisill, Jake Frye, and Hayden Miller were the other cars involved. Frye received medical attention from track EMTs after complaining of neck pain after the crash.

Joe Long, Jr. claimed his first Trail-Way win since June of 2000 in the 20-lap Mason/Dixon 270cc micro-sprint feature. Long’s 4T4 started on the outside pole and led every lap. Polesitter Levi Peck crossed second, followed by 12th starting Cory Myers, 17th starting Bill Laughman, and 15th starting Chad Myers.

Heats for the 25 270’s were won by Tim McClelland, Steven Cox, and Jim Young.

Mike Goodwin started sixth and raced to his first win of the year in the 20-lap street stock feature. It was Goodwin’s eighth career win at Trail-Way. Aaron Beard led the first lap from his second starting spot before Goodwin took over. Goodwin was unchallenged the rest of the way, with Matt Wampler crossing 1.43 seconds behind. Third through fifth were Dalton Myers, Marshall McMullen, and 12th-starting Alex Updegraff.

Qualifiers for the 14 street stocks were won by McMullen and Goodwin.

Tomorrow, Saturday, July 2nd, Trail-Way hosts the first of two Junk Car Demolitions of the 2016 season. Joining the “Kings of Crash” Junk Car Demo, will be the Figure 8 and Powder Puff classes. The Limited Stocks will participate in the Trail-Way/Susquehanna Shootout. Gates open at 4:00 p.m., with heats beginning at 6:00 p.m.

Dewease Wins Port Royal $7,000 Speedweek Main For Third Of 2016 Series

Oval veteran notches 98th career Port Royal win while Hart claims second econo main

6/30/16

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Lance Dewease drove the Don Kreitz No. 69K sprint car to the $7,000 PA Speedweek victory at Port Royal Speedway on Thursday night, turning back Stevie Smith and Lucas Wolfe for the 98th win of his career at the oval.

In the 18-lap econo late model feature, Port Royal’s Devin Hart scored his second win of the season in the division, taking the lead late in the race.

Dewease started seventh in the 30-lap speedweek feature with Stevie Smith and James McFadden sharing the front row and when action began Dewease stuffed his racer up the inside and into fourth on the first lap, behind Greg Hodnett, McFadden and Smith.

McFadden and Hodnett were locked in a battle for second on the third lap when Hodnett tried to make a move on McFadden for the spot as the pair exited the fourth turn.

As Hodnett came up across the track he found McFadden to his outside and the pair made contact with McFadden biting the outside wall while Hodnett turned sideways and hopped up over the inside barrier, ending up with his nose pointed toward the sky, hanging on the barrier.

Dewease blasted the outside in the first and second turns on the restart to keep pace with Smith and then dropped down to the inside as the pair raced onto the backchute before blasting across the inside in the third corner to come up with the lead.

Smith was trying to keep pace with Dewease on the fifth circuit when the red flag unfurled for a third turn crash that saw Logan Wagner flipping after contact with Blane Heimbach as the pair vied for 15th.

Dewease was still leading over Smith and now Lucas Wolfe on the eighth tour when the pace was again slowed, this time for a spun Tyler Bear.

The next 14 laps clicked off non-stop with Dewease reaching the halfway point while holding a 1.835 second lead over Smith who was hounding to regain control.

Trey Starks, who was racing ninth in the field, stopped with eight laps to go, again slowing the race pace.

Wolfe darted under Smith for second when green replaced the yellow but saw Smith reclaim the spot with six laps to go.

A final caution flag with five laps to go for Bryan Clauson again bunched the field.

For Clauson, the yellow marked the end of an impressive run in the feature after he blew a tire and hit the outside fence while racing sixth.

Dewease pulled away over the final five laps to pick up his third win of the 2016 speedweek series and sixth of the season overall in just 11 starts to date.

His margin of victory was 1.950 seconds.

Wolfe finished third followed by Danny Dietrich and Brent Marks.

Sixth through 10th went to Dave Blaney, Doug Esh, Aaron Ott, Brock Zearfoss and Alan Krimes.

Heats for the 33-car field went to Clauson, Dewease, Dietrich and Steve Buckwalter with the consolation going to Tim Shaffer,

Wolfe set fast time in qualifications with a lap of 15.529 seconds.

Chase Bowsman nearly won the 18-lap econo late model main, leading all but the final quarter of a lap.

Bowsman held off Shaun Miller for the first 14 laps before Miller surrendered to pressure from Devin Hart.

Hart caught Bowsman on the final lap and got underneath him as the pair raced down the backchute into the third corner, heading to the checkers.

Bowsman threw his car into the turn trying to hold on for the win but instead lost control and the win went to Hart.

Tim Krape rode home second followed by Miller, Todd Snook and Tim Fedder.

Heats went to Miller and Krape.

Susquehanna Speedway to Thank Car Owners With Free Admission to Firecracker 40

PA Sprint Car News | Justin Snyder

York Haven, PA | June 30, 2016

Susquehanna Speedway has been the talk of the local racing scene since Scott Gobrecht took ownership last year and brought Kolten Gouse on to serve as promoter of the Newberrytown facility.

With cosmetic changes such as new barriers, upgraded bathrooms, new lights and more, fans and drivers have been treated to new and improved facilities throughout the 2016 season.

Hosting multiple series on a weekly basis, the racing has been top notch. Thanks to the addition of new clay and constant upkeep by track staff, the speedway has enjoyed resurgence with high car counts and extremely competitive events.

On top of providing an improved racing surface and first class facilities, the speedway team is looking to thank their support classes with various promotions throughout the season.

"We want to better connect with our drivers and have them feel apart of this speedway," said Gouse.

In late March, the speedway announced that they would honor various divisions with free pit passes on specified nights. This included Super Sportsman, Limited Late Model, Street Stock, Extreme Sreet Stocks and Road Warrior divisions.

Looking to expand on this promotion and as a way to give back to other divisions who support the track, they will be offering free admission to any driver from the Legends, Road Warriors, Extreme Stocks and Mini Vans for their Firecracker 40 event on July 2nd.

"I can't remember any track that has done this recently, if ever," said Gouse. "That's over 100 drivers that will be eligible for a free grandstand admission."

The spectacle, presented by Dellinger's Auto Body, Tyson Fence Co., Creekside Auto Sales and Morgan Paving Ic. , will feature the Super Sportsman, topless 358 Limited Late Models and Street Stocks. The Eastern Museum of Motor Racing will also be on hand.

Local musicians, The Colt WIlbur Band, will also perform at a pre-race party from 4-6 p.m as part of the weekly parking lot party outside the speedway.

"It's something small, but we really just wanted to show our drivers in these divisions that we really do care about them and that we appreciate all that they do for us as competitors," said Gouse, who added they will be doing more events like this in the future.

Drivers wishing to attend the racing program and cash in on the promotion can pick up their tickets at he grandstand window prior to the nights events.

RAIN STOPS THUNDER SERIES ON LAP FIFTEEN OF SPRINT FEATURE TUESDAY NIGHT AT GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY

BECHTELSVILLE, PA (June 28, 2016) – Rain has not been a friend to Thunder on the Hill and Tuesday night was no different as the Pennsylvania 410 Sprint Speed Week Series invaded the Grandview Speedway for event one-hundred and twenty of the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series presented by Pioneer Pole Buildings. Feature race leader Ryan Smith made contact with another car sending him spinning into the first turn infield on lap fifteen. At the same time, the light mist of rain opened to a down pour. The sprint cars returned to the pits to wait out the shower. The amount of rain that fell over the twenty-five minute delay, was just too much for even the Grandview Speedway track crew to correct. As a result, the event was postponed with the completion of this show to take place on the Tuesday night, July 26.

The remainder of the event – a 410 Sprint car feature starting at lap 16 and a 30-lap Modified feature will be run, along with a complete show for both divisions. The complete show, includes the 410 Sprint Cars in the 2nd Annual Thunder Cup, a 35-Lap, $5,000 to win feature plus a 30-lap, $3,000 to win NASCAR 358 Modified main event.

At the start of the 35 lap Speed Week feature, Brent Marks, of Myerstown, PA, jumped to the early lead with Ryan Smith and Freddie Rahmer following quickly. Darting around the quick 1/3-mile high-banks, Marks set a rapid pace but Smith challenged back sliding into the lead on the fourth circuit.

The yellow flag flew for the first time on the sixth lap for Sean Zemunik and Jevon Ahner who tangled in turn four.

On the restart, Smith charged forward, while eight-time Thunder on the Hill winner Greg Hodnett raced into the runner-up spot from the sixth place starting position. Smith, “The Kunkletown Kid” to his fans, powered forward before tangling with a lapped car on the fifteenth lap.

TJ Stutts set fast time with a lap of 11.763. For Stutts, this was his first visit to Grandview in a 410 sprint car. Sprint heat races were won by Bryan Clauson, Brent Marks and Ryan Smith. In the Modifieds, heat race events were won by Duane Howard and Ryan Grim

The next NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series event takes place on Thursday, July 14 when the Super DIRTCar Series Big-Block Modifieds compete at the 19th Annual Traffic Jam presented by Pioneer Pole Buildings.

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY HOSTS PA SPEEDWEEK FINALE OPPERMAN-BOGAR MEMORIAL FOR 410 SPRINT CARS THIS SUNDAY

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Selinsgrove Speedway will host the PA Speedweek Finale for 410 sprint cars at 7:30 p.m. this Sunday, July 3, honoring the memory of the late driver-car owner duo of Jan Opperman and Dick Bogar. The 30-lap 410 sprint car feature will pay $5,000 to win and $400 to start. Track gates will open at 5:30 p.m.

The 305 sprint cars and pro stocks will compete in 20-lap and 15-lap main events, respectively, to round out the three-division racing card this Sunday. The rain date, if needed, will be Monday, July 4 at 7 p.m.

Since 2005, the Opperman Memorial has been run in conjunction with the PA Speedweek Series for 410 sprint cars at Selinsgrove. The inaugural Opperman Memorial was won by Todd Hestor of Middleburg in 2002. Last year’s race and the PA Speedweek championship went to Stevie Smith of Broken Arrow, Okla.

Selinsgrove Speedway is where Opperman won the most races—19 in a sprint car—and where he clinched his only track championship in 1973. In 1974 and 1976 he qualified for the Indianapolis 500 and then returned to Pennsylvania to race sprint cars. He suffered a career-ending injury in a URC-sanctioned sprint car race in 1981 at the Jennerstown Speedway. Opperman died in 1997 at the age of 58.

Bogar is credited with recruiting Opperman to turn the wheel on what would be become one of the most famous sprint cars in the history of the sport – the Bogar No. 99. The Bogar family name has a long heritage with the historic Snyder County half-mile oval. It was the Bogar Lumber Company that supplied the lumber to build the track’s current covered grandstand. Bogar passed away in 2014 at the age of 86.

In April, Danny Dietrich of Gettysburg won the All Star Circuit of Champions Ray Tilley Classic and most recently Greg Hodnett of Spring Grove scored the win in the June Friday Night Lights 410 sprint car race at the Snyder County half-mile oval.

Selinsgrove Raceway Park will present the Firecracker Special for go karts at 7 p.m. this Friday, July 1. Track gates will open at 5:30 p.m.

THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES

NAPA AUTO PARTS & PIONEER POLE BUILDINGS PRESENT. . . . . .

IS A FIRST-TIME GRANDVIEW WINNER LIKELY TUESDAY, JUNE 28 DURING THUNDER ON THE HILL SPEEDWEEK EVENT ?

BECHTELSVILLE, PA (JUNE 27, 2016) – Winning at Grandview Speedway is no easy task -- especially when the 410 Sprint Cars invade the Berks County oval – but this year’s contingent of Pennsylvania Sprint Car Speed week competitors may be the strongest in years, and there is definitely opportunity to knock off two-time defending race winner Greg Hodnett.

The challenge takes place this Tuesday, June 28 at 7:30 PM when NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series showcases the 410 Sprint Cars in a 35-lap, $5,000-to-win event as the NASCAR 358 Modifieds battlein a 30-lap, $3,000-to-win feature presented by Pioneer Pole Buildings.

Leading the charge is Broken Arrow, Oklahoma’s Stevie Smith. A veteran of Sprint Car racing, Smith has claimed victories at almost every track he’s raced at. Of course, it was August 1990 when the Smith Family’s famed Black Bandit No. 19 sat in Thunder on the Hill victory lane. Steve Smith Sr. would pilot that machine to the inaugural NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series event win. Now, twenty-six years later the younger Smith – defending PA Speed Week Champion – searches for his first Thunder on the Hill win a Grandview Speedway.

Sitting second in PA Speed Week Series points is 31-year-old Lucas Wolfe, of Mechanicsburg, PA. Wolfe certainly knows the fast way around the Bechtelsville high-banks setting quick time at 2015’s Thunder Cup race. At the 2014, Speed Week event Wolfe pulled alongside eventual race winner Greg Hodnett, with two laps remaining only to be beaten by inches at the line – this wasn’t Wolfe’s first time as a bridesmaid, he finished second to Todd Shaffer at the 2007 Speed Week event.

Kunkletown, PA’s Ryan Smith claimed three victories in 2015, traveling with the All-Star Circuit of Champions and has solid finishes in just three 410 starts at Grandview Speedway with a sixth, fourth and seventh in respectively.

Ryan Taylor’s flashy No. 20 machine is a fan favorite at Grandview Speedway – probably because the 27-year-old racer credits the Bechtelsville clay for piquing his interest in racing action. Taylor is a proven winner, having claimed victories at the Port Royal Speedway.

Smith’s teammates, 20-year-old Sprint Car aces Brandon and Freddie Rahmer, out of Salfordville, PA, have both claimed home track victories this season – and Freddie has picked up a top-five finish at Grandview’s last two 410 Sprint races. The Rahmer name is no stranger to Grandview victory lane – Fred Rahmer holds 9 Thunder on the Hill Sprint Car wins and 45 Modified victories.

Other possible first-time winners include Brent Marks of Myerstown, PA; Alan Krimes of Denver, PA, JJ Grasso of Middletown, DE, and Aaron Ott of East Berlin, PA. Noblesville, IN’s Bryan Clauson has never claimed a winged Sprint Car victory at Grandview, but does hold two wingless Sprint Car wins.

A $200 bonus has been posted to the top 360 Sprint Car, with a $100 bonus to the second 360 Sprint Car.

The Grandview small-block Modified stars will be out in full force defending their home turf: Current weekly series point leader, Craig VonDohren; 10-time Track Champion, Jeff Strunk; two-time 2016 race winner, Duane Howard; and 4-time Thunder on the Hill winner, Doug Manmiller. Previous Thunder on the Hill modified winners Rick Laubach, Mike Gular, Ryan Godown, and Kevin Hirthler are all expected to be in attendance.

Advance tickets are on sale now and may be ordered by calling 443-513-4456. Please provide your name and the number of tickets requested. Tickets may be picked up and paid for on race night after 3:30 PM. Advance ticket holders may enter the grandstands at 4:30 PM, one half hour prior to the sale of General Admission tickets.

Celebrating the 27th season of racing action NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series always includes fun for the fans with activities such as Pre-Race Pit Tours, the Inside/Out Experience - where fans can sign-up to watch hot laps from the infield, JOE "THE PIZZA DUDE", giveaways, fireworks and appearances by the Thunder Girls.

The Low Down & Dirty Meet and Greet kicks off at 5 PM with drivers Ryan Smith and Ryan Taylor. Fans are encouraged to take photos and get autographs with these popular Sprint Car drivers.

WHEEL-TO-WHEEL: HODNETT HOLDS OFF CLAUSON AND MARKS FOR PARTY AT PATH VALLEY SPEEDWEEK VICTORY

SPRING RUN, PA (June 26, 2016) – Greg Hodnett picked up the 410 Sprint Car victory in the Fred Rahmer Promotions Harry Fletcher Memorial event at the Path Valley Speedway as part of Pennsylvania Sprint Car Speedweek.

Hodnett, of Thomasville, PA, started from the top spot but claiming the $6,600 top prize was no easy task as Hodnett battled with Noblesville, IN’s Bryan Clauson side-by-side for more than 30 circuits.

“Clauson is a fierce competitor. He wins in everything he drives, we raced very hard and very clean. I’m fortunate to compete with someone like him” Hodnett explained to MRN Radio’s Winged Nation host, Steve Post in Victory Lane. “I struggle with these smaller race tracks, I credit this win to my guys who do a great job on this car for these races.”

With Hodnett leading them down to the green flag, trouble brewed early. Rodney Westhafer lightly rolled over in turn 1 bringing the red flag out on the initial start and leading to a complete restart.

Hodnett bolted out in front of the 24-car field, while Lucas Wolfe overtook front-row starter Aaron Ott in the first corner and slide up in front of Hodnett exiting turn four one-lap later.

As the field approached lapped traffic on the sixth circuit, Wolfe and Hodnett would swap the top spot twice. Hodnett pulled inside Wolfe exiting turn two, followed by Wolfe performing a slide job on Hodnett exiting turn four.

Hodnett set steady in the top spot on the eighth lap. With heavy lapped traffic approaching, Clauson – who started in the fifth position – slipped passed Wolfe and into the second position.

Hodnett and Clauson fought wheel-to-wheel, using lapped traffic and crisscrossing grooves. On the 16th circuit Hodnett slid in front of Clauson exiting turn two, forcing Clauson to brake heavily. As Hodnett powered forward Clauson charged back, taking over the top spot briefly just passed the halfway mark, only to forfeit the lead back to Hodnett.

Weaving in and out of lapped traffic on the 27th lap, Hodnett powered off the top groove diving below the cars of Brock Zearfoss and Tyler Ross – a bold move that distanced him from Clauson. Almost simultaneously Brent Mark of Myerstown, PA, came out of nowhere to challenge for the second position.

The field slowed for the final time on lap 32, when Australian competitor Sean Zemunik rolled over in turn 4 forcing a red flag.

A single file restart sealed the deal as Hodnett held off Clauson and Marks to claim his 26th Pennsylvania Sprint Car Speedweek victory. Lucas Wolfe came home in fourth position, Ryan Smith of Kunkleton, PA finished in the fifth spot.

Danny Dietrich of Gettyburg, PA finished in sixth, Ohio invader Cole Duncan finished seventh, Alan Krimes in 8th, Aaron Ott in 9th and Mike Wagner rounded out the top ten.

Collecting $300 for their Heat race wins were Clauson, A.J. Flick, Marks, and Alan Krimes. Heat races were presented by Leffler Energy, Buck Rubs, Freedom Powersports and Emory Transmissions.

Smithburg, Maryland’s Kameron Morral claimed the $1,000 to win, 25 Lap 600cc Micro Sprint feature event. Defending three-time race winner Tyler Walton started on the pole of the event and jumped out front on the initial start, before looping his Juniata Beverage No. 14 T machine in turn four on the first lap and forcing Walton to the rear.

A complete restart handed the lead to Asbury, NJ’s Eric Bodine. Bodine shot out front at the drop of the green flag with Morral and Birdsboro, PA’s Aaron Bollinger right on his tail.

Morral would overtake the top spot on the 19th lap and set the cruise control claiming the victory. Bodine would settle for second, Bollinger in third, Heath Henly in fourth and Garret Bard in fifth.

600cc Micro Sprint heat races were won by Aaron Bollinger, Tyler Walton, Greg Stevens, and Luke Thomas – all collected an additional $100 for their efforts.

A standing room only crowd participated in a full-day of excitement, with the popular Party at the Path event and Truck and Tractor Pull at Hammond’s Grove picnic area.

Three race fans went home with 32” flatscreen televisions courtesy of Leffler Energy.

The next Party at the Path event takes place on Sunday, August 28 at the Path Valley Speedway and will feature the 410 Sprint Cars and the 600cc Micro Sprints.

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY
By Michael Batz

FRANEK REPEATS IN FIRECRACKER FOR 360 SPRINT CARS;
RINE MAKES HISTORY WITH 100TH CAREER LATE MODEL VICTORY;
MITCH & LEISTER WIN PRO STOCKS & ROADRUNNERS

SELINSGROVE, Pa. -- The start was crucial according to winner Davie Franek, of Wantage, N.J., after the Newville Family of Companies 360 Sprint Car feature was over. Franek marked his second straight win at the speedway as well as his second Firecracker 30 win in a row Saturday night at Selinsgrove Speedway.

Franek went by Mark Smith in turn four on the first lap and never relinquished the race lead. A great battle for third between Larry Kelleher, Matt Campbell, and Derek Locke was interrupted by a yellow flag on lap 10. The field was brought back to Franek's rear bumper and Mark Smith pulled even with Franek on the restart, but quickly settled back into second. Smith would stay there until the checkered flag.

Locke worked by Kelleher for third. Eric Tomecek rounded out the top five finishers. Jason Schultz was sixth followed by the IBEW Local Union 1319 hard charger Nate Snyder. Matt Campbell took the top honors for the 358 engine competitors from Newville Family of Companies and Lelands.com. Campbell finished eighth with Michael Walter and Jim Shuster the top ten finishers.

Franek and Campbell were the sprint car heat race winners.

Coleby Frye picked a good number to allow the 0 car to start at the front. His goal was to stay there for the full 25 laps in the second race of the Moon Shine Camo Route 35 Challenge Series. Frye looked to be the car to beat while Bryan Bernheisel and Jeff Rine ran second and third.

Bernheisel kept Frye in his sights, but was not able to close in until a yellow flag on lap 15 changed the whole outlook on the race. Frye got out of shape on the restart and the top three drivers went three wide on the restart. Frye and Bernheisel made contact and Rine flew into the race lead.

Rine led a hard charging Chad Hollenbeck when another yellow flag bunched up the field on lap 23. Rine was in search of his 100th career Selinsgrove feature win when the green flag flew. Rine got away from Hollenback on the start and never looked back taking win 100. It was Rine's fourth win of the season.

Hollenbeck finished in second with Andy Haus rounding out the podium finishers. Bernheisel finished in fourth. Tim Wilson gained a bunch of spots at the end to finish in fifth. Danny Snyder, Steve Campbell, Coleby Frye, Dylan Yoder, and Mike Lupfer rounded out the top ten finisher. Heat race wins went to Frye, Snyder, and Rine. Jason Smith was the consolation winner.

Lori Croop led the A&A Auto Stores Pro Stocks to the green flag for the popular stock division’s feature event on Saturday night. Croop led the first two laps before ninth place starter Brad Mitch jumped to the inside on the home stretch to take the top spot. Mitch went much of the race unchallenged, but a late race restart gave the field a shot to take the race win away from Mitch.

Tommy Slanker restarted second with one lap to go after grabbing the spot from Matt Wilson. Slanker followed Mitch into turn one and used the inside to challenge Mitch coming to the checkered flag out of turn four. Mitch held on for his second win of the season and his 21st of his career at Selinsgrove Speedway.

Slanker finished in second followed by Wilson. Jason Zook drove the s8 to a fourth place finish after starting 11th. Jake Buck had a strong run to round out the top five finishers. The top ten finishers included Jim Payne, Matt Hornberger, Jeff Ceballa, Nate Herman, and Peanut Heintzelman. There was a pair of new heat race winners for the Pro Stocks on Saturday when Matt Wilson and John Troxell took checkered.

Ryan Leister was challenged for much of the Roadrunner feature by Keith Bissinger. Even on the final tour of the track Bissinger kept the pressure on Leister. Leister power around the final corner and grabbed the final checkered flag of the evening. Bissinger came home in second. Two-time winner this year Dustin Snook, Ray Zook, and Corey Kepner rounded out the five finishers.

There will be no racing next Saturday (July 2nd) at the Speedway. Sunday, July 3, will be race day at 7:30 p.m. with the 410 Sprint Car Speedweek Finale plus the 305 Sprint Cars and the Pro Stocks have been added in a non-point event. The race will pay tribute to Jan Opperman and Dick Bogar.

Saturday, July 9th, is the rescheduled PEPSI Pack the Track night $5 general admission plus Kids Night featuring the 360 Sprint Cars, Late Models, Pro Stocks, and Roadrunners. There will also be kids bike, big wheel, and power wheels races.

DEVIN BEIDEL CAPTURES FIRST CAREER SUPER SPORTSMAN WIN
Randy Stoudt Makes in Two Straight in Late Models and Alex Updegraff Takes Second Extreme Win

By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway
YORK HAVEN, PA 6/25/16

Devin Beidel raced to his first career win in Saturday night’s 25-lap Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman feature at Susquehanna Speedway.

Aboard the Reinford Landscapes, Country Butcher Shop/Weston’s Lawn Care/Pickney Racing Engines/Hilton Lock Service No. 19, the Newville, PA driver started fourth on the grid and raced past early race leader Lanny Hake with three laps complete.

Once taking the top spot, Beidel was able to keep the rest of the field at bay as he scored that elusive first career win.

Scott Dellinger came from his 10th starting spot to secure the runner-up finish ahead of Tom Wyckoff, point leader Scott Geesey who started 14th and Adam Wrey.

Completing the top ten finishers were Kenny Edkin, Jay Fannasy, Paul Miller, Russ Mitten and Tony Jackson. Mitten earned the Hard Charger award after starting 24th using his nephew Timmie Barrick’s race car. Mitten blew the motor in his own No. 77 during heat race action.

Heats for the 30 Super Sportsman were won by Rick Barr, Beidel and Davey Walsh.

In what was billed as one of the best races in history at the track, Boyertown, PA driver Randy Stoudt came away with the win in the 25-lap Precise Racing 358 Late Model feature.

Chase Billet led the first seven laps before Charlie Potts took over. Potts’ lead was short-lived as Billet regained the lead on lap 20 as 10th starting Stoudt and Randy Christine, Jr. went three wide for the top spot as the trio raced through the third and fourth corners during lap 20.

Stoudt gained control of the event with 21 laps complete and drove off from the field to post his second straight and third overall win of the year about the Leinbach Motorsports No. NINE machine.

Billet finished second ahead of Christine with 16th starting DJ Myers coming home fourth ahead of Potts with Steve Billet, Shaun Jones, Sam Gallagher, Travis Mease and Kyle Lear rounding out the top ten.

Potts, Lear and C. Billet won heats for the 25 late models. Jason Nace won the consolation.

Alex Updegraff came from his 11th starting spot to post the win in the 50-lap Xtreme Stock feature. Updegraff’s second win of the year came after taking the lead on lap 32 and driving to the win over Matt Wampler, Brian Rehbein, Michael Smith (who led the first 31 laps) and John Frye.

Susquehanna Speedway returns to action on Saturday July 2 with a huge racing program highlighted by the Firecracker 40 presented by Dellingers Auto Body for the Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman and the Topless 40 for Late Models sponsored by Harbaugh Amusement Machine and Creekside Auto Sales.

DEWEASE TAKES ROUND ONE OF 2016 PENNSYLVANIA SPEEDWEEK for 39TH CAREER LINCOLN WIN;

Bob Stough holds off Chaney and Montgomery for fifth Lincoln Central PA Legends victory

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 6/25/2016 – Lance Dewease was never really gone. But his performances in a limited number of appearances has amazed even the most doubting fans in 2016.

Dewease started on the pole, followed outside front row starter Lucas Wolfe for the first eight laps, drove by the Zemco #1 in heavy lapped traffic on lap eight to take the lead for good in claiming the $7,000 top prize on what turned out to be opening night of the 26th Annual Pennsylvania Speedweek Saturday night at Lincoln Speedway.

“It’s fun to be back,” said Dewease after scoring his 39th career Lincoln win in 17th Annual Kevin Gobrecht Memorial, “It’s been a long time since they’ve been here, and I haven’t raced here any this year.” It was the first Kreitz car win at Lincoln in ten years.

Once in the lead, Dewease pulled away from the field to a four-second advantage in heavy lapped traffic when the first caution of the event came out for Cory Haas, who made contact with Doug Esh and came to a stop sideways on the back stretch. Haas changed a flat tire and rejoined the race.

Fifth-starting Stevie Smith had worked his way into second for the restart, with Danny Dietrich third after a multi-lap battle with Greg Hodnett.

They were still running first through third when the red flag came out for Gerard McIntyre, who rolled onto his side after contact with Esh on turn four on lap 24.

“The surface is a little different,” said Dewease of his first Lincoln appearance of the year, “We struggled all night. We were pretty good there once we got going. But after that last caution I was just hanging on. I wasn’t that good, and I didn’t know where to run. I saw Stevie and kinda knew where he was probably going to be. When Danny popped to third…you know, he can run anywhere around this place.”

Dietrich found a burst of speed over the final laps to close within two car-lengths of Dewease at the finish, just .284 seconds behind the winner. Smith settled for third, with Hodnett and Wolfe rounding out the top five.

“It’s an honor for me to drive this for Donnie and with Davey working on it,” reflected Dewease, “The whole Kreitz family and the whole crew. We’re just here having fun. It is what it is. We may not have had the best race car we had all year, but we took advantage of a good starting spot here tonight.”

Dewease’s win in the Kevin Gobrecht Memorial gave him the early points lead in the Speedweek series (166), 15 points ahead of Danny Dietrich (151), followed by Hodnett (148), Stevie Smith (143), and Wolfe (135).

Sixth through tenth were 13th-starting Brent Marks, hard charger Aaron Ott (who came from 19th), Brian Montieth, Alan Krimes, and Robbie Kendall.

Fast time in time trials over the 40-car was set by Greg Hodnett with a one-lap time of 13.375-seconds (100.935 MPH). Heats for the sprints were won by Stevie Smith, Jim Siegel, Wolfe, and Krimes. Brock Zearfoss won the B-Main.

Bob Stough won his heat, drew a #6 pill for the feature inversion, and came from sixth to score his fifth career Lincoln win in the Central PA Legends feature.

Stough was the four different leader of the event. Scott Haudeshell led the first two laps from the pole before Lucas Montgomery took the lead on lap three. He led until Mason Chaney wrestled the lead away on lap 16. Stough caught Chaney for the top spot on a lap 19 restart and was scored the leader of the final two laps.

Second through fifth were Chaney, Montgomery, Australian invader Hayden Pascoe, and Travis Perry.

Heats for the 32 Legends were won by Stough, Perry, and Chaney, with Chris McKinney winning the consolation.

Lincoln swings back into action next Saturday night, July 2nd, with the Nouse Signs & Graphics Summer 358 Sprint Series event, PASS/IMCA (305) Sprints, and 600 Xcel Modifieds. Racing gets underway at 7:30 PM, with gates opening at 5:30 PM.

BITTINGER WINS FIRST OF YEAR IN TRAIL-WAY “358” SPRINTS;
Brian Walls takes street stock feature; Cox, Carroll, and Rickrode other TW winners

HANOVER, PA (6/24/2016) – “Where’s the full moon?”

So asked Abbottstown’s Mike Bittinger after scoring his first win of the year in the 25-lap “358” sprint car feature at Trail-Way Speedway Friday night.

Bittinger started on the outside of the front row, outran polesitter Seth Kearchner to the first turn, and led every lap of the event.

“I don’t really like running up front. I’d rather have someone to chase,” said Bittinger after exiting his Apple Automotive/Boulder Pools/Big Mike’s Crabhouse/Newman’s Racing Engines #12 in victory lane, “But I’m glad we started up there tonight because I’m not sure we would have passed anyone. We spun out lining up for the feature last time!”

Red flags marred the first two attempts to start the race. The first was for Dwight Leppo, who flipped in turn two, and the second was for David Holbrook, who turned over in turn three. Both drivers were uninjured, as was Isaac Sneeringer, who flipped hard into the second turn catch fence on lap 15.

“I put the wing back at the start and that was a mistake,” said Bittinger, “So I pushed it back up.”

Crossing second 1.34 seconds behind the winner was Kearchner, with hard charger Doug Hamaker (who came from seventh starting spot), Jeff Halligan, and Cody Fletcher rounding out the top five. Sixth through eighth were Zach Euculano, Kody Hartlaub, and Dalton Dietrich. Brandon Noel and Sneeringer were credited with ninth and tenth.

Qualifiers for the 15 “358” sprinters were won by Leppo and Fletcher.

Brian Walls came from tenth starting spot to win in his first appearance of the year in the 20-lap street stock feature.

Walls took the lead from outside front row starter and race-long leader Zach Myers when Myers got out of shape in turns three and four of lap 12 and drove away to a 1.44-second win.

Second through fifth were Mike Goodwin, ninth-starting Jeremy Stremmel, Doug Bennett, and 13th-starting Matt Wampler.

Heats for the 15 street stocks were won by Eric Johnson and Bennett.

Following a one-hour rain delay, Steven Cox took the lead from polesitter Nick Gower on lap 11 and claimed his first win of the year in the 20-lap Mason/Dixon 270cc micro-sprint feature.

Gower hung on for second, with Bill Laughman, Levi Peck, and Cory Myers completing the top five.

Qualifiers for the 17 micros were won by Peck and Cox.

Robbie Carroll scored his first win of the year in the 15-lap limited stock feature. He became the third leader of the race on lap seven. Julio Perez led the first two laps before Jason Chronister took over. Chronister dropped from the field three laps after Carroll took the lead.

Second through fifth were Matt Chronister (who came from the rear after diving to the pits to remove some debris from the driver’s side of his car on the initial start that led to a caution for debris that was also on the race track), Perez, Sarah Redmond, and Charles Millender.

Heats for the 17 limited stocks were won by Jason Chronister (seventh win in eight heat races this year) and Carroll.

Brothers Mark Rickrode, Jr. and Scott Rickrode finished one-two in the 20-lap Les Coghill Memorial for Vintage Cars. The field was cut in half when six race teams left during the rain delay. It was Mark Rickrode’s first-ever win in his 1874 AMC Gremlin designed to look like the old Kenny Weld modified.

Third through fifth behind the Rickrodes were Randy Minich, Gene Wrightstone, and Stew Wenrich.

Moon Shine Camo Rt. 35 Dirt Late Model Challenge Series Highlights Saturday Card

6/26/16

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Port Royal Speedway will be in action twice during the week coming up as two big PA Speedweek shows hit the track, first on Thursday, June 30 and again on Saturday, July 2.

Both shows begin at 7:30 pm.

The entire 2016 speedweek series is sponsored by Always Racing, a pastoral organization that ministers to the motorsports community during times of trauma and also in spiritual need.

The June 30 program features the PA Speedweek sprint cars in a 30-lap main paying $7,000 to win.

The Gray’s Auto and Towing econo late models are also on the program.

Saturday’s show features the speedweek sprints in another 30-lap main, paying $5,000 to the victor.

The second Port Royal race in the inaugural Moon Shine Camo Rt. 35 Dirt Late Model Challenge Series with Selinsgrove Speedway is also slated for the holiday weekend card.

The Moon Shine Camo Series event will pay $2,000 to win and $200 to start the 25-lap main event for the super late models.

Beavertown’s Hayes Mattern kicked off the series at Port Royal on April 23.

Gates for the Thursday special open at 5:30 pm with Saturday gates opening at 4:30 pm.

Adult general admission Thursday is $20 with students ages 12 – 18 admitted for $7.

Saturday adult admission is $22 with $7 admission for students.

Already a one-time winner at the track this season, Royersford’s Steve Buckwalter is the defending Port Royal speedweek winner.

The last and only other time that the track has been able to complete two speedweek events in one year was in 2011 when Greg Hodnett and Justin Henderson split a pair of Port Royal features.

Hodnett has been by far the big winner at the track this season, recently recording his sixth oval triumph of the year to increase his point lead in a quest for a first-ever Port Royal track title.

Stevie Smith is the defending overall PA Speedweek series titlist.

Hodnett will be trying to net car owner Michael Heffner his first series title in 2016 aboard Heffner’s famed No. 27.

$10,000 To Win Williams Grove Speedweek Mitch Smith Memorial Is Friday

305 sprints also in action

6/26/16

Mechanicsburg –Williams Grove Speedway will host the biggest event of the 26th Pennsylvania Speedweek series this Friday, July 1 at 8 pm when it hosts the 28th annual Mitch Smith Memorial for sprint cars at 8 pm, paying a hefty $10,000 to win out of a purse worth over $30,000.

Friday’s Mitch Smith Memorial will use time trials to set the field as do all speedweek events and the feature will be 30 laps in distance.

The entire 2016 speedweek series is sponsored by Always Racing, a pastoral organization that ministers to the motorsports community during times of trauma and also in spiritual need.

A special holiday fireworks display is also slated during this Friday’s program.

The PASS/IMCA 305 sprints will also be on the holiday racing card.

The Mitch Smith Memorial began in honor of the late star in 1989.

Known affectionately to most as the “Linglestown Leadfoot,” Smith was one of the most electric sprint car stars to ever grace the Cumberland County oval and the Central PA region with his talents.

Perhaps his biggest claim to fame was his trumping of the world-renowned USAC sprint car stars when they came east to Williams Grove Speedway in 1971.

For comparison purposes, USAC was in 1971 what the World of Outlaws is to sprint car racing today.

They just simply didn’t get beat.

Except by Mitch Smith in Central Pa in 1971.

The USAC’ers were furious.

The PA drivers and fans were famous.

At the end of his four-decade career in 1978, Mitch Smith had amassed 179 overall total career feature wins including 27 in a sprint car and nine in a super modified at Williams Grove alone.

Smith drove for owners like Mary Flack in the Flying Tiger, John Regester, Gary Wasson and Al Hamilton in the famed No. 77.

After being felled by a massive heart attack in 1988, Smith was posthumously inducted into the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame in 1995.

Fred Rahmer and Lance Dewease have done the best in the Smith Memorial over the years, each owning four victories.

Doug Esh is the defending Smith Memorial champion.

Friday’s event will again be part of the 2016 Hoosier Diamond Series at the oval.

The Williams Grove portion of the 50/50 on the night will be donated the 4 Diamonds Fund.

The 4 Diamonds Fund is an organization set up through the Penn State Children's Hospital in Hershey to help fight childhood cancer.

Adult general admission for the show is $20 with youth ages 13 – 20 admitted for $10.

Kids ages 12 and under are always admitted free at Williams Grove Speedway!

MATT SHEPPARD WINS SUPER DIRTcar SERIES MODIFIEDS AT WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY
Greg Hodnett is URC Sprint car winner once again

MECHANICSBURG, PA – In the first visit in 10 years by the Super Dirtcar Series Modifieds to Williams Grove Speedway, it was Matt Sheppard taking the $6,000 win Wednesday night. It was the 36th career series win for the four-time champion.
Meanwhile, it was Greg Hodnett beating Mark Smith in the United Racing Club 360-Sprint car feature.
Tim Fuller started on the pole of the 100-lap modified feature and grabbed the early race lead over Ryan Watt and Sheppard. The first caution flew when Stewart Friesen slowed with seven laps completed.
Sheppard, of Waterloo, N.Y., would get by Watt for second on the restart as Fuller continued to lead. Billy Decker was running fourth and former World of Outlaws Sprint car champion Dave Blaney was up to fifth from eighth.
The caution flew when Eldon Payne’s tire shredded on the frontstretch with 19 laps completed. Watt would get back by Sheppard for second. Fuller led a freight train of modifiedS around the inside line of the speedway as the top groove went away.
Fuller held a comfortable lead as Sheppard would get back around Watt for second with a move off turn four and down the frontstretch. Fuller closed on the back of the field and Sheppard closed on him.
The leaders got a break with 37 laps completed when Danny Johnson slowed in turn four. The top three remained the same following the restart, but Blaney moved up to fourth.
Sheppard began to pressure Fuller for the lead. They made contact in turn four and Sheppard was the new leader as they completed lap 53. Watt slowed moving Blaney up to third and bringing out the caution flag.
The top three remained the same following the restart, but another caution flew with 61 completed. Two more cautions slowed the pace.
Blaney tried to take second but couldn’t quite make the pass as they raced into turn one. A third turn spin slowed the field again with 25 to go. Blaney was able to make the pass work this time.
Sheppard initially pulled away, but Blaney was there with 15 laps left. Blaney got to Sheppard’s bumper two times, but couldn’t get to his inside.
Blaney’s final shot came with seven laps to go as the caution flew.
Sheppard got a good restart and controlled the final laps to get the win by 2.702 seconds over Blaney, Fuller, Larry Wight and Decker. Friesen rebounded for sixth and Frank Cozze seventh and Mike Mahaney eighth. Brett Hearn came from the rear to ninth and Keith Flach rounded out the top 10.
“The track starting locking down a little bit early,” said Sheppard. “I decided to ride it out and drive the car nice and straight. On the long runs, it seemed like the guys in front of us would get slower and slower and we’d maintain. I think that’s what won the race for us tonight. I was able to keep the air in the right rear tire. Once we got out front, I wanted to hit my marks and take it easy and drive the thing straight and we were able to do that. To put a win at Williams Grove on my resume means a lot.”
Brett Hearn set overall quick time with a lap of 20.893 seconds. Heat races for the 34 modifieds were won by Hearn, Stewart Friesen, Frank Cozze and Matt Sheppard. Duane Howard won the consolation.
A three-car crash on the frontstretch involving Kody Lehman, Adam Carberry and Will Eggimann brought out the red flag on the initial start of the United Racing Club 360-Sprint car feature.
When the race resumed, Robbie Stillwaggon grabbed the race lead over Jason Shultz, Mark Smith and seventh starter Hodnett.
The caution flew with one lap completed for a spin by Chuck Hebing.
Hodnett had passed Smith before the caution and got Shultz with a pass off turn two. Hodnett was running the bottom and Stillwaggon pounding the top.
Smith moved by Shultz for second as Hodnett and Stillwaggon were about even at the backstretch bridge. They were still close at the flagstand with Stillwaggon leading to complete lap seven.
Hodnett finally made the bottom groove work off turn two to take the lead. Stillwaggon fought back entering turn three in traffic, but Hodnett got back by off turn four to complete lap 10 as the leader.
Smith passed Stillwaggon and had a run on Hodnett coming off the second turn, but the race was slowed when Jason Clauss slowed to a stop on the backstretch with 12 laps completed.
Hodnett pulled away from Smith on the restart. URC point leader Davie Franek passed Shultz and Stillwaggon and was up to third as Hodnett worked the bottom and Smith the top.
Hodnett closed on a group of lapped cars with three laps to go, but stayed smooth and straight on the bottom. Smith closed on the final lap, but Hodnett passed three slower cars in the final turn to keep Smith in second by 1.203 seconds at the checkers.
“The car has been really good,” said Hodnett. “Rider just built this motor this year. It runs really good. We’ve been fortunate to have great starting positions and able to move through the heat races. We were bad in one and two. I thought in three and four as long as we had track position, we’d be okay.”
Smith, Franek, Stillwaggon and Shultz completed the top five. Curt Michael, Lucas Wolfe, Josh Weller, Glenndon Forsythe and Chris Arnold rounded out the top 10.
Heat races for the 24 URC Sprints were won by Franek, Hebing and Hodnett.

QUEST FOR RECLAMATION: POSSE COMPETITORS BATTLE TO CLAIM PARTY AT THE PATH VICTORIES ON SUNDAY, JUNE 26

SPRING RUN, PA (June 22, 2016) – The kingpin of the Pennsylvania Posse clan of Sprint Car racers, Fred Rahmer, transitioned from full-time competitor to full-time promoter two years ago -- holding events at Path Valley Speedway in Spring Run, Pennsylvania.

Yet, despite Rahmer’s Posse allegiance, the greatest racers in Central Pennsylvania remain winless at ‘The Path.’

“These guys just can’t get it together enough to beat the outsiders,” Rahmer said of his cohorts. “It’s starting to feel like PA Posse versus the world.”

Outsiders Brady Bacon of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma and Chad Kemenah of Findlay, Ohio have claimed Path Valley victories. While, last year’s Speedweek event was won by Stevie Smith of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma – a de facto Posse victory aboard a Rahmer-owned machine.

Gettysburg, PA’s Danny Dietrich and Dillsburg, PA’s Aaron Ott maintain the highest average finishing positions of all competitors at Path Valley and either could claim victory. Dietrich finished in the runner-up spot in 2015, with TJ Stutts, Lance Dewease, Brent Marks, Ott, Lucas Wolfe, Ryan Taylor and Greg Hodnett all finishing in the top-10.

The Pennsylvania Posse quest for reclamation begins on Sunday, June 26 for the Third Annual Party at the Path 40-lap Harry Fletcher Memorial event paying $6,600 to win, $1,000 for tenth and $400 to take the green flag.

Bonus money for competitors is plentiful with a $500 Eagle Evergreens Quick Time Bonus, heat race wins will be rewarded with a $300 bonus courtesy of individual heat race sponsors: Freedom Power Sports, Buck Rubs, Emory Transmissions, and Pioneer Pole Buildings.

Racers competing in all three Fred Rahmer Promotions/Path Valley Speedway events this season, will be eligible for a random drawing to win a trip to Las Vegas. Airfare and accommodations for two people for three-days/four-nights.

Party at the Path marks the third event of the legendary Pennsylvania Sprint Car Speedweek, ironically enough it’s Rahmer that holds 30 Speedweek wins – the most of any other driver -- and 13 Speedweek Championships.

Also on the card is the popular 600cc Micro Sprints competing in a 25-lap event with $1,000 up for grabs. Micro Sprint heat races will offer an additional $100 to the winner.

600cc Micro Sprint competitor Perfect Attendance bonuses include random drawings for a XXX Micro Sprint Racing Chassis, a $500 Hyper Racing Gift Certificate, and a test session in one of Fred Rahmer’s RBR Racing 410 Sprint Cars. An additional test session will be awarded to the competitor that wins the season-long Micro Sprint Point Standings.

Race fans will be excited to hear that Leffler Energy, supporter of Fred Rahmer Promotions and RBR Racing, will offer up three flatscreen televisions to three lucky fans selected at random.

For the most excitement in all of Franklin County, Party at the Path provides a day chock-full of entertainment!

The event kicks off at 12 PM at Hammond’s Grove Picnic Area located at 19898 Hammond Road – approximate one mile from Path Valley Speedway. Fans will be treated to free food, games, give-a-ways and live music courtesy of popular rock band, Southern Edge. The RBR Racing Leffler Energy 410 Sprint Car will be on display, giving fans an intimate look at the powerful machines.

At 2 PM, Hammond’s Grove transforms into the ultimate display of power, as five-divisions of 1800 horsepower Mod Turbo Tractors competing in a Truck and Tractor Pull presented by Interstate Pullers. General admission Adult tickets for the Tractor Pull are $12 and Children 8-12 are $6.

The night concludes with the ever-exciting 410 Sprint Cars in the 40-Lap Harry Fletcher Tribute Race, as part of Pennsylvania Sprint Car Speedweek. Also on the card, the 600cc Micro Sprints. General Admission tickets at Path Valley Speedway are $20 and children under 12 are admitted FREE! General Pit Access is $30.

A discount of $2 is available for fans attending both events. Fans can purchase General Admission wristbands at the Path Valley Speedway Park starting at noon and can display that wristband at Hammond’s Grove to receive their discount. Fans can also display their Tractor Pull Admission wristband at the Path Valley Speedway and receive the same discount.

A shuttle will be available to transport fans to Hammond’s Grove from Path Valley Speedway and back. Tickets for the Path Valley Speedway event will be available for purchase at the Hammond’s Grove pre-race party.

NAPA AUTO PARTS THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES CONTINUES. . . .

NOW WITH WINGS, BRYAN CLAUSON EYES SECOND GRANDVIEW WIN THIS MONTH, 410 SPRINT SPEEDWEEK SET FOR TUESDAY, JUNE 28

BECHTELSVILLE, PA (June 20, 2016) – The ink is still fresh on the giant check that Bryan Clauson claimed earlier this month after winning the USAC non-wing sprint car feature at Grandview Speedway on June 7. Now, the Noblesville, IN native is Bechtelsville-bound once again to compete with the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series Pennsylvania Sprint Car Speed Week event at Grandview Speedway on Tuesday, June 28. But on this night, Clauson will be racing with a wing all the horsepower it provides. This event is presented by Pioneer Pole Buildings.

The 22nd Annual Speed Week event at the 1/3-mile clay oval features a 35-lap Sprint Car main event, the fourth race of a nine-race stretch for the winged 410 sprint cars. Drivers from across the region will compete for a $5,000 winner’s share. Tenth place will pay $1,000 with $400 just to start the main event.

Also on the card, Grandview’s own NASCAR 358 Modifieds battle in a 30-lap event, with $3,000 up for grabs. This event is a NASCAR point race for the always exciting 358 modifieds.

Time Trials for the 410 Sprint Cars will open the show on Tuesday, June 28 at 7:30 PM. The pit gates will open at 2:30 PM and the Grandstands will open at 5:00 PM. Fans can get up-close to the drivers and their mighty machines with the Low, Down and Dirty Meet and Greet kicking off at 5:00 PM. If you would like to visit the pits, sign up for the free pre-race pit tours.

General Admission Adult tickets are $25, Children ages 6-11 are $10, and Under 6 is Free of charge. Pit admission is $35, and no license is required.

Clauson, who’s ‘Circular Insanity’ tour will see him chase 200 events this year, has picked up two USAC non-wing victories, but this marks his first venture to Grandview Speedway in a winged Sprint Car. Clauson’s, with several starts in the Indianapolis 500, loves to get dirty in sprint car racing and will certainly add to the show. Some early pre-entries include Lucas Wolfe, Danny Dietrich, Ryan Smith, Brent Marks, Aaron Krimes, Freddie Rahmer, 8 time winner at Grandview Greg Hodnett, Brandon Rahmer and Stevie Smith just to offer a sampling of the quality of the field.

Last July, in the Inaugural Thunder Cup 410 Sprint Car race it was Gettysburg, PA’s Danny Dietrich, breaking Greg Hodnett’s four-race Grandview win streak to claim the $5,000 top prize. Alan Krimes finished in third in the July 2015 event and he has been so close to scoring that Grandview victory. It could just happen on Tuesday night, July 28.

A $200 bonus has been posted to the top 360 Sprint Car, with a $100 bonus to the second 360 Sprint Car.

The Grandview small-block Modified stars will be out in full force defending their home turf: Current weekly series point leader, Craig VonDohren; 10-time Track Champion, Jeff Strunk; two-time 2016 race winner, Duane Howard; and 4-time Thunder on the Hill winner, Doug Manmiller.

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY
 

 18 June 2016
By Michael Batz

FRANEK HOLDS OFF KISSINGER FOR WHITCOMB MEMORIAL SPRINT CAR VICTORY;
RINE EDGES CLOSER TO 100TH CAREER SELINSGROVE LATE MODEL VICTORY;
HOFFMAN & SNOOK SCORE PRO STOCK & ROADRUNNER WINS

SELINSGROVE, Pa. -- Selinsgrove Speedway has been the Achilles heel for Davie Franek in 2016. He has been strong on the United Racing Club 360 sprint car tour all season but ironically it took a Patriot Sprint Tour event for him to really shine at the Snyder County half-mile oval Saturday night.

Franek, of Wantage, N.J., showed the way early on in the Newville Family of Companies 360 sprint car Joe Whitcomb Memorial with the night's quick timer and most recent feature winner Ryan Kissinger in chase. Kissinger made a move in lap traffic to pull even with Franek, but it was to no avail as Franek pulled away to the victory. It was Franek's first win of the year at Selinsgrove Speedway but the tenth of his career.

Jason Shultz ran by Kissinger on the closing laps to take the runner up spot. He never had a chance at the race lead though as the laps wound down. Mark Smith and Eric Tomecek finished out the top five starters.
Patriot Sprint Tour point leader Jared Zimbardi finished in sixth followed by Cody Keller, Derek Locke, Curt Michael, and Dane Lorenc.

360 sprint car heat races were taken by Ryan Kissinger, Joe Trenca, and Jason Schultz for the Patriot Sprint Tour. The night’s fast time award for the 360 Sprint Cars was presented by Fast Tees in memory of
Jim Nace. The award went to Ryan Kissinger with a time of 17.792 and an average speed of 107 mph.

Larry Kelleher was the IBEW Local 1319 Union Hard Charger.

Danny Snyder showed the way early on in the Jeff's Auto Body & Recycling Center Super Late Models. Snyder looked very strong before a yellow flag on lap seven evened things back up and Dave Zona began to shine. Zona made a bold move around the outside on a restart to grab second and then a timely yellow flag gave him an equalized restart.

A big wreck ensued on the restart taking out every car from sixth to tenth except Jeff Rine. Rine would use his second chance at life in this race to the best of his ability and shoot into third on the restart. Zona took the race lead away from Snyder on lap 11 before Rine wrestled it away on lap 13.

Zona kept pace with Rine for the next couple of laps before driving away on his way to his 99th career Selinsgrove feature win. The battle for second was a three car battle all the way to the checkered flag with Zona holding off Snyder and Matt Cochran.

Steve Campbell rounded out the top five starters followed by Bryan Bernheisel, Donnie Schick, Coleby Frye, Jason Smith, and Jim Yoder. Late Model heat races went to Bryan Bernheisel, Tony Adams, and Danny Snyder.

AJ Hoffman started from the pole of Saturday night's A&A Auto Stores Pro Stock feature and once he got in front he never looked back leading all 15 laps on his way to his 43rd career Selinsgrove Speedway win and his second win of the season. He is the divisions’ first repeat winner. Jake Buck and Tommy Slanker kept the pressure on Hoffman early in the event but as the feature ran through Hoffman pulled away. He said they made many changed to the car before the feature and the changes sure paid off. Buck held onto second before Brandon Moser darter by the battle for second to take the runner up spot. Buck held off Slaker for third at the line. Slanker and Kurt Wray rounded out the top five finishers.
Pro Stock heat races were won by Brad Mitch and AJ Hoffman.

The Roadrunners closed out the night’s racing action with a thriller of a feature event between Dustin Snook who was searching for his second win of the season and Keith Bissinger. Snook stayed loyal to the outside line for the whole race while Bissinger plugged away on the inside.

Bissinger pushed the issue a little too far just past halfway and his machine spun in the turn. Bissinger was not out of it though! He drove back through the field into second. The race was Snook's at that point though as he took his second win of the season.

Snook said in victory lane the track was tricky but he knew he needed to stay on the outside to claim the win. Bissinger was second followed by Butch Scaffer, Smith Cope, and Tom Underwood in the top five. Miranda Minium and Ken Schreffler rounded out the field.

PRS 2016 – Racing through a new decade with a new attitude! Port Royal Speedway

The Only Place To See Super Sprints And Super Lates Every Saturday Night

Hollenbeck And Yoder Lock Together For Port Royal Late Model Thriller

Hodnett wins sprints, Fedder wins econo lates, Kepner takes xtreme stocks

6/19/16

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Greg Hodnett started eighth and drove through the field to win the 25-lap 410-sprint car feature at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night to record his sixth oval checkers of the season, worth $3,200.

In the 22-lap super late model feature, a wild and thrilling finish accentuated the suspenseful event with Chad Hollenbeck stealing the victory at the finish line over Dylan Yoder.

The 18-lap econo late main was taken by Tim Fedder while Corey Kepner took the win in the 15-lap xtreme stock feature.

Second starter Doug Esh took the lead at the start of the sprint car feature over Mike Erdley before the first caution flag unfurled with two laps in, finding Aaron Ott racing third with Hodnett already up to fourth.

Hodnett drove by Ott at the new green and took second from Erdley a lap later.

Esh entered the backmarkers with the lead on the eighth tour following closely by Hodnett before another yellow flag bunched the field with 15 laps to go.

Esh tried his best to hold off Hodnett, running the top line while Hodnett worked the middle and bottom lanes but it proved to be of no use as Hodnett easily drove right through the slick to power by Esh as the pair shot onto the backchute on lap 13.

Hodnett began driving away once in control but saw his pace slowed with nine laps to go for a stopped Esh on the frontchute.

Ott, ninth starter Brent Marks and seventh starter Lucas Wolfe followed for the restart and when action resumed Wolfe howled around the top lane to make a two-car pass, first getting Marks in the first corner before overtaking Ott in the third and fourth turns.

Once into second, Wolfe tried to close in on the distance between himself and the leader but couldn’t muster a challenge, instead crossing the finish line 1.763 seconds behind at the finish.

Ott rode home third followed by Marks and Mike Wagner.

Sixth through 10th went to Ryan Taylor, Blane Heimbach, Brock Zearfoss, Curt Stroup and Dylan Cisney.

Heats went to Marks, Hodnett and Wolfe with Scott Wilson scoring the consolation.

The spectacle that was the super late model main went non-stop with polesitter Dylan Yoder leading all but the final few yards.

Chad Hollenbeck started fourth in the field and overtook Tim Smith Jr. for second on the third tour while beginning to spew smoke from the rear of his racer.

Yoder raced into the rear of the field with 12 laps to go followed by Hollenbeck and as the race wore on it seemed that Hollenbeck was getting slightly stronger despite mechanical ills while running the inside lane while Yoder began to slip just slightly while using the high line.

On several occasions, as the smoke grew heavier out of Hollenbeck’s machine, the Montrose speedster was able to get underneath Yoder in the corners only to watch as Yoder mustered just enough strength to get back out in front.

With two laps to go, Hollenbeck took a serious shot as Yoder washed up the track in the second turn but again Yoder used a slingshot move on the cushion to pull back even and then drive ahead as the pair neared the third corner.

Working heavy traffic with two cars racing for position just ahead of him, Yoder took the white flag still in command with absolutely no breathing room over Hollenbeck.

The pair set their machines into the third turn using the same lines they had worked the entire distance but this time Yoder’s drift around the top got just far enough around to allow Hollenbeck to nose out in front as the pair came onto the frontstretch.

And then contact occurred as they approached the flagstand with Yoder getting turned somewhat left into the side of Hollenbecks’ racer.

This in turn forced Hollenbeck’s machine to turn somewhat right and into Yoder’s car and nearly sideways as the pair crossed the finish line locked against one another before Yoder bounced off of Hollenbeck’s car into the first turn, spinning in front of the rest of the field.

Hollenbeck’s nose got across the finish line first and he then pulled his smoke-laden machine into the winner’s circle to claim his second oval win of the year by a shocking .137 margin that left the fans and officials speechless.

Yoder was a disappointed second followed by Smith Jr., Jeff Miller and Andy Haus.

Sixth through 10th went to Tim Wilson, Mike Lupfer, Matt Parks, Billy Wampler and Kyle Hardy.

Heats went to Trent Brenneman, Scott Flickinger and Haus.

Tim Fedder took over the lead from Derrick Garman on the fourth tour of the econo late model feature.

Fedder was never challenged the rest of the distance as he drove away to a nearly two second victory, the third of his career at the track.

Jason Nace muscled second away from Garman on the seventh tour and finished with the spot followed by Devin Hart, Todd Snook and Garman.

Heats went to Hart and Tim Krape.

The xtreme stock main event to Corey Kepner but only after early leader Bill Powell spun while leading with four laps completed.

Kepner saw Kevin Imes take over second on the final lap with Charlie Bryner finishing third followed by a surging Powell and Tyler Amtower.

ANOTHER 410 SPRINT CAR THRILLER AT LINCOLN; HOGUE IN VICTORY LANE THIS TIME;

Shaffer ninth winner in 10 races in 358 sprint cars; Enders tracks down Criswell for super sportsman win

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 6/18/2016 – Dover’s Austin Hogue caught race-long leader Tyler Ross as the two leaders were crossing under the white flag to score his first win of the year in the 25-lap 410 sprint car feature at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

“I didn’t want to have to work that hard!” said Hogue upon exiting his BAPS Auto Paints and Supply/Livingston Lawn Care/Abe Service Company #52 in victory lane, “Tyler ran me clean and it was an awesome race. You feel bad taking ‘em on the last lap…I don’t know what to say I’m so excited because it’s been one of those years.”

“Fast cars, but just not able to get it accomplished here,” added Hogue after scoring his second Lincoln win, “It’s a huge weight off my shoulders. We’ve been on and off. This consistency thing has been a struggle for us, but luckily we got it done here tonight and I can’t thank the guys enough.”

Hogue, who started third, passed Gerard McIntyre, Jr. for second on a sixth-lap restart and chased outside front row starter Ross for the next 18 laps. The race-winning move came as the two leaders raced through lapped traffic exiting turn four of lap 24.

“I wasn’t catching him on the top and I knew Gerard was down there,” said Hogue, “It was worth the shot and I was hoping the rubber would come in. It did at the very end, and luckily it came in just in time.”

A disappointed Ross finished second, with McIntyre, ninth-starting Brian Montieth, and points leader Alan Krimes rounding out the top five. Sixth through tenth were Cory Haas, Jim Siegel, 14th-starting Chad Trout, Mike Bittinger, and Brandon Rahmer.

Heats for the 26 410 Sprints were won by Montieth, Freddie Rahmer, and Haas.

Adrian Shaffer came from eighth starting spot to score his first Lincoln win of the year in the 20-lap 358 sprint car feature. Shaffer was already in the top five by the end of the first lap and was running third by the end of lap three. He passed Tyler Esh for second on lap 11 and drove around Brie Hershey for the race lead on lap 15.

That was the last of four lead changes of the event. Friday night Williams Grove winner Brie Hershey led the first lap from her outside front row starting spot before fourth-starting Esh took over. He they led for the next five laps before Hershey reclaimed the lead on lap eight.

Tenth-starting Matt Campbell came on late to pressure Shaffer for the lead in lapped traffic over the final four laps of the non-stop event, timed at 5 minutes, 44.6 seconds. He settled for second, with Hershey, Doug Hammaker, and 12th-starting Jeff Halligan rounding out the top five.

Heats for the 28 358 Sprints were won by Dwight Leppo, Jeff Rohrbaugh, and Hammaker, with Chandler Leiby winning the consolation.

Mike Enders caught race-long leader Chad Criswell on lap 17 and drove away to his third career Lincoln win in the 25-lap super sportsman feature event. Criswell crossed second .62 seconds behind the winner, with polesitter Scott Dellinger, Paul Miller, and Timmie Barrick completing the top five.

Heats for the 18 Super Sportsman were won by Criswell and Doug Dodson, who dropped from the feature field while running third.

Lincoln swings back into action next Saturday night, June 25th the Annual Pennsylvania Speedweek 17th Annual Kevin Gobrecht Memorial for 410 sprints ($7,000 to win) plus Central PA Legends. Time trials get underway at 7:30 PM, with gates opening at 5:30 PM.

Buckwalter Wins Hotly Contested Williams Grove Speedway Sprints,

Lady Racer Hershey Kicks Off Nouse Summer Series For 358 Sprints With Win

6/17/16

Mechanicsburg – “The Royersford Rocket,” Steve Buckwalter won a thrilling and hotly contested sprint car event at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, holding off the furious challenges of Brian Montieth, Danny Dietrich and Greg Hodnett to pick up the victory.

Elsewhere, the kickoff of the 2016 Nouse Signs and Graphics 358 Sprint Summer Series saw the $1,000 victory go to lady racer Brie Hershey of Enola.

Buckwalter slid to the outside of the front row for the start of the 25-lap 410-sprint car main when Chad Trout failed to start the event.

However polesitter Rodney Westhafer had things well in hand when the race began and was leading over Buckwalter on the second tour when he spun his car in the fourth turn at the same time as Lucas Wolfe slowed with a flipped up front wing.

This handed control to Buckwalter who saw Aaron Ott blast from fourth to second on the restart and begin challenging for the lead.

Ott pulled a slider on Buckwalter in the fourth turn as the pair raced to complete lap nine only to see Buckwalter drop off of the cushion and reclaim command and all the while the front duo were racing one another, moving forward was Montieth from 12th starting spot, Danny Dietrich from ninth and Greg Hodnett from 11th.

Buckwalter was still doing his best to keep Ott at bay when the red flag appeared with 13 laps down for a frontstretch series of flips by Todd Allen.

It was Allen whom Buckwalter had just put a lap down as the pair exited the fourth turn that ended up biting the outside rail before catapaulting up and forward into the wall and catch fence.

Buckwalter had Ott, Montieth, Dietrich and Hodnett in tow for the new green and as the final 12 laps went non-stop, so was the action for the lead and win.

With five laps to go, the front four cars were under a blanket with no more than one car length between each of them as they sliced and diced high and low for the win.

Montieth threw down a major slide job in the second turn of the 21st lap only to see Buckwalter vault back out in front as the pair shot onto the backstretch and all the while both Dietrich and Hodnett were waiting to pounce.

Two laps later, Montieth layed down another huge slider in the second corner to gain command and again Buckwalter retook the top spot however this time as Montieth slid sideways Dietrich bit fast on the bottom and drove up off of the low groove into second as both he and Buckwalter overtook Montieth.

Dietrich then made his attempts for the win with Buckwalter on the high cushion however the Gettysburg driver came up just short at the finish with Buckwalter scoring the payday by a scant .164-second margin.

It was Buckwalter’s seventh career victory at the oval.

“I could hear them back there,” Buckwalter said of his three challengers.

“I don’t like winning that way. I played a lot of defense there but then a wins a win.”

Montieth was third followed by Hodnett and Freddie Rahmer.

Sixth through 10th went to Aaron Ott, Cory Haas, Alan Krimes, Doug Esh and Brock Zearfoss.

Heats went to Alan Krimes, Lucas Wolfe and Rodney Westhafer with Rick Lafferty claiming the consolation.

Beautiful lady racer Brie Hershey would end up leading all 25-laps of the 358 sprint main however to say she cruised to the win would be incorrect.

For most of the race she had the lead well in hand but a late race challenge developed from 12th starter Doug Hammaker.

On a lap 16 restart, Hammaker blasted from sixth to third, driving to the outside and around Kevin Nouse, Troy Wagaman Jr. and Kyle Denmyer.

And then with seven laps to go, Hammaker disposed of Nyle Berkes for second in order to have a clear shot at the leader when a final caution flag bunched the field on lap 19.

Hershey went for the low block when action resumed as Hammaker committed to the top and then as Hershey scrubbed speed while sliding up across the track, Hammaker shot into the lead however Hershey was stout enough to not led Hammaker get away and she motored back alongside and into control on the backchute.

This gave her the edge she needed to the finish to pick up the win, her third career Williams Grove checkers.

Hammker rode home second followed by Berkes, Nouse and Denmyer.

Sixth through 10th went to Wagaman, Matt Findley, Todd Rittenouse Jr., Glenndon Forsythe and David Holbrook.

Holbrook was the Consumer Insurance Agency Hard Charger for driving from 23rd spot up to 10th.

Heats went to Findley, Denmyer and Hammaker with Rich Eichelberger scoring the consolation.

THE CHANCE OF A LIFETIME: MICRO SPRINT RACERS CAN WIN A RAHMER 410 SPRINT CAR DRIVING EXPERIENCE

Brad Weber Won a Randomly Selected Test Session; Party at the Path Micro Sprint Bonuses set for Sunday, June 26 Speedweek Kick-Off

SPRING RUN, PA (JUNE 17, 2016) – They’re the fastest race cars on dirt – 410 Sprint Cars. The pinnacle of dirt track racing experiences, and there’s no better first-time teacher than Central Pennsylvania Sprint Car Legend, Fred Rahmer. That is exactly what Thomasville, Pa’s Micro Sprint racer, Brad Weber learned this past week after completing the 410 test session he won at Rahmer’s Party at the Path events.

Fred Rahmer Promotions offered up a 410 Sprint Car driving experience to two 600cc Micro Sprint competitors – one session for the series Champion, Tyler Walton and the second selected at random from the group of drivers that competed in all of the Rahmer/Path Valley Speedway events in 2015.

“This car has so much power,” Weber said after the test. “It’s so easy to break the tires loose, this was just awesome.”

Weber, a 29-year-old racer that competes regularly at Trailway and Path Valley Speedways, relished in the once-in-a-lifetime experience.

“This has been such a great experience,” Weber continued. “This is a $75,000 race car and for the Rahmer family to give me this opportunity is great. It’s probably the only time I’ll ever get behind the wheel of a 410.”

Fred Rahmer Promotions offers up multiple Perfect Attendance bonuses. Competitors that participate in all three of the Rahmer events at Path Valley Speedway will be eligible for perfect attendance bonuses. These bonuses include random drawings for a XXX Micro Sprint Racing Chassis, a $500 Hyper Racing gift certificate, and a test session in one of the Fred Rahmer’s RBR 410 Sprint Cars. An additional test session will be awarded to the 2016 Party at the Path 600cc Micro Sprint Champion.

“I’d recommend everyone take advantage of this opportunity,” Weber concluded. “Who better than Fred Rahmer to teach you how to drive a 410 Sprint Car?”

The 2016, Party at the Path season kicks off on Sunday, June 26, where 600cc winged Micro Sprint competitors can compete for a $1,000 top prize in their 25-lap main event. Along with the $1,000 jackpot, Micro Sprint heat races will pay $100.

RANDY STOUDT IMPRESSIVE IN CARL BILLET MEMORIAL WIN
Russ Mitten Gets First Super Sportsman Win while Chris Heller Tops Street Stocks

By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway
YORK HAVEN, PA 6/11/16

As the memory of all-time leading Susquehanna Speedway late model winner and track champion Carl Billet was being remembered, Randy Stoudt put on a performance that the late Billet did so many times during his illustrious racing career before his untimely death three years ago.

Piloting the famous Leinbach Motorsports No. NINE late model, Stoudt wheeled his machine from his 19th starting spot to claim the 40-lap Carl Billet Memorial Saturday night at the York Haven track.

The win was the second of the season for the Pottstown driver as he and his team earned the $1,500 payday following his impressive drive through the field.

Following a six car melee on the start, front row starter Brad Shank set the pace through the first 25 laps of the Billet Memorial before giving way to Randy Christine on the 26th circuit.

Christine led for three laps before turning the top spot over the Stoudt who then drove off from the field to score the win. Six cautions closed the field following the big lap one crash.

Christine settled for the runner-up spot followed by track point leader Jake Jones, Ralph Morgan and Billet’s son Steve who started 13th. Completing the top 10 finishers were Chris Knopp, Matt Nailor, Shaun Jones, Sam Rial and Matt Murphy.

Christine set a new one lap track record in time trials with a lap of 18.015 seconds.

Heats for the 30 cars were won by Jones, Jim Yoder and Chase Billet. Chase Billet also won the dash.

After several early season good runs, Russ Mitten finally visited victory lane in the 25-lap Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman feature.

Mitten had worked his way from 10th into second spot when race leader Kevin Nouse lost a motor on lap 23 turning the top spot over to Mitten.

Mitten, of Newville was able to keep his Newville Electric Services, RPM Chassis out front over the final circuit to score his first win of the year as he became the sixth different winner in seven Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman races this season.

Bruce Buckwalter, Jr led the first four laps before Nouse took the top spot. But Buckwalter raced back into the lead on lap six before Nouse returned to the top spot and led until his motor expired.

Chad Criswell finished in the runner-up spot ahead of Mike Enders, Hard Charger Scott Geesey up from the 15th starting spot and Doug Dodson as Scott Dellinger, Tony Jackson, Kenny Edkin, Buckwalter and Troy Rhome rounded out the top 10 finishers.

Nouse, Davey Walsh and Devin Beidel won heats for the 31 Super Sportsman with Rick Barr topping the consolation.

Chris Heller led all 20 laps of a caution-filled street stock feature to score his first win of the season.

Heller became the fourth winner in five races this season as he dominated the feature event.

Jasen Geesaman finished second but failed post race tech and was disqualified as Chris Derr, Mike Potts, Travis Horan and Eric Tripp finished in the top five.

Horan, Tripp, Cory Phillips and Geesaman won heats for the 36-car street stock field with Jason Townsend winning the consolation.

Susquehanna Speedway returns to action on Saturday June 18th as the PASS/IMCA 305 Sprints return to the track joined by the Street Stocks, Xtreme Stocks (which will be the Trail-Way Shootout), ServiceMaster Clean Central PA Legends and Mini Vans. . It will also be the York County Racing Club Night at the speedway. .Pits open at 4PM with grandstands opening at 5PM and racing beginning at 7PM.

Bryan Clauson’s Circular Insanity Tour Storms Port Royal For USAC Win

Miller and Irvin claim 305s and econos

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

6/11/16

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Noblesville, Indiana’s Bryan Clauson stormed into Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night on his 2016 circular insanity tour as part of the 10th annual USAC Eastern Storm tour itself and by the time the rowdy event had passed over, Clauson had etched his historic name in the record books of the historic oval.

Clauson stormed forward from deep in the pack to claim the 30-lap, $6,000 USAC National Sprint Series main event and become the 183rd different driver to win a sprint car main at Port Royal.

In the 305 sprint main two-time Port Royal series champion Jeff Miller drove to victory while Eric Irvin scored in the 355 econo late model championship.

A total of 26 USAC sprints entered Port Royal action with Chase Stockon of Fort Branch, Indiana, setting fast time over the field with a lap of 19.148 seconds.

USAC champions Dave Darland and Brady Bacon found themselves parked on the front row for the start of the feature event.

Darland darted into the lead over Bacon at the start with Clauson taking the green from the 11th hole on the grid.

A fierce battle for third developed between Stockon and California’s Thomas Meseraull a few laps into the race with the pair exchanging the spot back and forth before disaster struck on the fifth tour.

As Meseraull raced to the outside of Stockon in the fourth corner, his car kicked out and nailed the frontstretch wall, sending him into a violent series of frontstretch flips in front of the grandstand.

Meseraull vaulted up into the catch fence with enough altitude to allow defending Port Royal USAC winner Robert Ballou to blast underneath his careening car while it was up in the air.

Luckily, Meseraull escaped serious injury.

Darland had Bacon, Stockon and Ballou lined up behind for the new green and Darland continued to lead at first before Bacon started making stabs for control.

Oklahoma’s Bacon completed an outside sweep of the third and fourth turns to take command from Darland with eight away while Ballou pushed his way forward using the outside lane as well.

Ballou was up to second with Clauson still well out of the picture on the 11th tour.

A caution for Chris Windom at the halfway point bunched the field with California’s Ballou glued to Bacon’s bumper for the return to action and a slider in turns three and four netted him the lead with 17 complete and once in front Ballou rocketed away with the lead, looking assured of his second Port Royal USAC win in a row.

Another yellow flag with 12 laps to go now found Clauson just getting up to sixth spot.

Stockon was next to flex his muscle at the front, after chugging along in third all during the mid stages, he picked off Bacon with 10 laps to go and was poised to mount a challenge until a blown motor saw him slow with seven laps to go.

And that’s when things really went haywire as a bizarre and dramatic turn of events saw leader Ballou pit under caution due to a loosened power steering line.

This handed the lead back to Bacon and Clauson suddenly found himself second instead of fourth after really coming to life with 10 laps to go, having blasted from sixth to fourth behind Stockon.

And with that, Clauson was in his office behind the wheel for the restart and a big slider in the third corner saw him take command and begin to run away for what would be a 2.012 second margin over Bacon at the finish.

“This place is a little big for me to be winning,” Clauson exclaimed of his usual prowess on smaller, tighter bullring type tracks.

“I bet if you watched the first 10 laps of that race you didn’t think we’d be sittin’ here.”

Bacon rode home second followed by 12th starter Max McGhee of Camby, Indiana, Darland and CJ Leary of Greenfield, Indiana.

Sixth through 10th went to Jerry Coons Jr., Shane Golobic, a rebounding Ballou with fixed steering, Carmen Perigo and Isaac Chapple.

Heats went to Ballou, Leary and McGhee with Aaron Farney taking the B Main.

The first heat saw Ballou and Shane Cottle racing hard for the lead when Cottle flipped out over the third turn fence, escaping injury.

Huntingdon’s Jeff Miller wired the field for the 18-lap 305 sprint main, finishing ahead of Tyler Reeser, Dave Grube, point leader Nate Gramley and 20th starter Dave Brown Jr.

It was Miller’s first oval win of the season.

Heats went to Reeser, Grube and Miller with John Martin scoring the consolation.

Devin Hart looked like an early favorite for the econo late model main, jumping from his poled starting spot into the lead and pulling away.

Third starter Eric Irvin drove into second on the third lap but was unable to close any distance for the lead until suddenly with 10 laps completed he dramatically closed in.

Irvin then drove by and took the win, his first of the season, with Andrew Yoder getting by Hart for second.

Hart finished third, with no power steering since the eighth circuit.

Tim Fedder was third with Tim Krape finishing fifth.

Heats went to Fedder and Hart.

HODNETT QUALIFIES FOR SEPTEMBER LINCOLN DIRT CLASSIC WITH SATURDAY SHOWCASE WIN;

Scores $7,000 victory with last turn pass

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 6/11/2016 – The thrillers just keep coming at Lincoln Speedway.

This time it was Central PA point series leader Greg Hodnett who had the fans on their feet, sliding under race-long leader Lucas Wolfe exiting the final turn to claim his third win of the year in Saturday night’s 30-lap Leffler Energy Dirt Classic Showcase.

“We never touched,” said Hodnett over the din of boos which were there to meet him in victory lane, “I had to do what I had to do to win. I had a good car. They were out in front, and we chased him down and lucky enough to pass him on the last lap.”

The event included a last lap challenge which polesitter and outside front row starter Lucas Wolfe turned down to go for the top prize and an automatic qualifying spot for Lincoln’s September 24th Third Annual Dirt Classic.

Ryan Smith, who was slated to start third, accepted the last row challenge, and earned $2,050 by advancing from 24th staring spot to finish 15th.

Although he started on the pole, Hodnett lost the drag race to turn one and chased Wolfe the first 29 and three-quarter laps. When the two leaders first hit lapped traffic on lap ten, Wolfe had nearly a two-second lead. He increased the advantage to 2 and-a-half seconds with ten laps to go.

But heavy lapped traffic allowed Hodnett to close the gap as the laps wound down. He began peaking under the Zemco #1 in the turns with three laps to go.

“Lucas was having trouble getting through one and two. He wanted to be up top, and there were a couple of times he split it and went to the middle. That gave me a lot of momentum,” said Hodnett, “Heading into turn three I thought we were faster and we needed to get off turn four better. When he got caught behind the lapped cars, I made my move. I have watched Brian Montieth and Danny Dietrich and the guys that run good do it every time they come here. I’ve been on the receiving end of that slider, so we just put ourselves in a position to get in front of him and make him back off.”

As the two front-runners exited the final turn, Wolfe struck the outside guardrail and wrestled his sprinter home second.

Third through fifth were Stevie Smith, Brent Marks (who came from 14th starting spot), and Gerard McIntyre, Jr. Sixth through tenth were Danny Dietrich, Adam Wilt, Chase Dietz, Aaron Ott, and Brian Montieth.

Fast time in time trials over the 34-car field was set by Brandon Rahmer with a one-lap time of 13.706-seconds. Heats were won by Montieth, Wolfe, Stevie Smith, and Robbie Kendall, with Brandon Rahmer winning the B-Main. And, of course, Greg Hodnett won the Dash.

Lincoln swings back into action next Saturday night, June 18th, with a three-division show that includes the 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints, and Super Sportsman. Heats will get underway at 7:30 PM, with gates opening at 5:30 PM.

HODNETT SHINES IN SELINSGROVE 410 SPRINT CAR FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS SPECIAL!
RACE PRODUCES FOUR DIFFERENT LEADERS, INTENSE WHEEL-TO-WHEEL RACING!
SLANKER SCORED FIRST CAREER PRO STOCK VICTORY!

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Ten years passed since Selinsgrove Speedway ran a special Friday night 410 sprint car race, and the wait was worth it when the division took the spotlight in the 25-lap “Friday Night Lights” main event with no fewer than four different leaders taking a shot at the $3,500 win.

At the checkered flag, Greg Hodnett of York held off Brent Marks of Myerstown and Lucas Wolfe of Mechanicsburg by less than a one-second margin separating first from third. The victory was Hodnett’s 10th of the season and 17th career at Selinsgrove in 410 racing at the wheel of the Lelands.com No. 27.

Tommy Slanker also held off challenges to score his first career pro stock victory in the division’s 15-lap main event.

Selinsgrove Speedway will be in action at 7 p.m. this Sunday, June 12, with the Appalachian Mountain Late Model Speedweek Series Finale plus limited late models. Track gates will open at 5 p.m. There is no racing at the track Saturday, June 11.

Outside front row starter TJ Stutts pulled into the lead at the start of the 410 sprint car feature. On the first two circuits, Stutts and polesitter Brock Zearfoss dueled for the lead. Meanwhile fifth-place starter Brent Marks raced third as sixth-place starter Greg Hodnett advanced to fourth on the third circuit.

Stutts, who won back-to-back Friday night 410 sprint car races in March of 2006, saw his hopes of keeping his Friday night winning streak alive go away on lap six when his car lost power on the frontstretch and coasted into the pit area. Zearfoss took command of the field with Marks applying pressure in traffic.

On the 10th lap, Marks made an exciting dive to the inside of Zearfoss entering turn three for the lead only to have the red flag unfurl when Scott Wilson hit the fourth turn wall and roll over in front of the leaders. Wilson escaped injury.

When the race resumed, a three-car war on wheels unfolded for the lead entering turn one between Zearfoss, Marks, and Hodnett. Marks took the lead on lap 12 with a pass by Zearfoss in turn three. A lap later, Hodnett drove into second.

The final 10 laps produced some of the most intense sprint car racing of the season as ninth-place starter Lucas Wolfe showed some speed and made it a three-car battle to the finish. On the 18th circuit, Hodnett took the lead in turn four when Marks drifted high. However, Marks and now Wolfe closed in on Hodnett in lapped traffic. Both Marks and Wolfe took shots at Hodnett to no avail.

At the checkered flag, Hodnett was victorious by just .47 of a second over Marks with Wolfe crossing the line just .91 of a second behind Hodnett in third. Ryan Smith and Blane Heimbach completed the top five.

Second-place starter Matt Hornberger led the first lap of the pro stock feature after a lap one restart for a three-car tangle in turn two. Fifth-place starter Adam Campbell made a charge into second on the restart and came away with the lead on lap two.

By lap six, eighth-place starter Tommy Slanker made his way to the front of the pack and powered into the runner up spot. With five laps to race, Slanker moved into striking distance of Campbell, who spun a lap later on the backstretch.

Slanker inherited the lead and drove to a mere 1.28 second margin of victory over Kurt Wray, Brad Mitch, Curtis Lawton, and Matt Hornberger.

WINDOM WITHSTANDS CLAUSON'S CHARGE
IN HORN/SCHINDER MEMORIAL AT THE GROVE


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
6/10/16

Mechanicsburg, PA.........Chris Windom was able to fend off a furious late-race rally by Bryan Clauson to win in the return of champ car racing to Williams Grove Speedway after a 35-year hiatus in Friday night's "Horn/Schindler Memorial" 100-lap USAC Silver Crown race.

C.J. Leary was the first car to hit the track for ProSource Qualifying and the first to break Steve Kinser's long-standing one-lap track record from 1981 by three and a half seconds. None of the remaining drivers were able to reach the bar that the Greenfield, Indiana driver set, which placed him on the pole for the main event.

Leary and outside front row starter Justin Grant engaged in a side-by-side battle for the top spot on the opening lap with Leary assuming and maintaining control throughout the early stages. However, turn four proved to be a Bermuda Triangle of sorts in the first quarter of the race, plaguing a bevy of drivers that halted the action on four separate instances involving three different drivers.

Race leader Leary had seen nothing but daylight in front of him during the first several laps, but on the lap 29 restart, all Leary had was smoke in his eyes as a continuous plume billowed from the headers of the number 30. Leary began to slow dramatically, eventually coming to a stop in the first turn one lap later before being towed off to the pit area. The night for April's "Sumar Classic" winner at the Terre Haute Action Track was finished after such a strong performance in his first visit to the Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania track.

Justin Grant inherited the lead for the lap 35 restart, but, by lap 37, Windom had sliced into Grant's lead, setting Windom up for an outside turn four pass to take the top spot.
Meanwhile, Clauson was picking cars off at a rapid pace from his 16th starting position, crossing over from the topside to the inside of Mark Smith for fourth out of turn 4 on lap 39.

Windom sailed away on a comfort cruise after the race's final caution flew for the stopped car of Austin Nemire on lap 40. The Canton, llinois driver built his lead to a full-straightaway advantage with 35 laps to go.

Yet, Clauson was determined not to give in yet, taking third from Grant on lap 65 and sliding up in front of Brady Bacon for second on lap 69. However, Clauson still had a long row ahead of him to catch Windom who was on cruise control up front.

With 10 laps to go, some fans were seen leaving the grandstands with the feeling that the conclusion would be inevitable with Windom rolling to an easy victory. It appeared that Clauson would need a caution to close the gap on Windom's seemingly insurmountable lead, but with the pedigree that Clauson has attained over the last decade plus in the United States Auto Club, nothing was outside the realm of possibility.

Shot out of a cannon, Clauson continued to chop and slash the interval between him and leader Windom little-by-little, driving on the edge, appearing as if he was on a single-car qualifying run in the final laps.

With two laps to go, Windom jumped the skyscraper-high turn three cushion, allowing Clauson to close in right behind the tail tank of Windom's machine as the two exited turn four.

As the two sprinted down the front straightaway, Clauson got the bite off the bottom and was able to pull ahead by a car length inside of Windom at the exit of two on lap 99. Yet, Windom was able to find each and every morsel of horsepower to muscle his car back in front into turn three.

As Clauson and Windom ran Hoosier-to-Hoosier between turns three and four, the duo had to contend with the lapped car of David Byrne immediately after passing under the white flag indicating one more lap to go. The two split Byrne with Windom aiming for the topside and Clauson cutting to the low side. Clauson attempted to slide job Windom at the entrance to one by drifting up to the top line in front of Windom, but came up just shy, getting his car too far sideways and killing his momentum between turns one and two.

But, like Michael Myers in the "Halloween" movie series, Clauson would not go away, re-emerging yet again to make one last run at Windom into the final two turns. However, it was simply not enough as Windom led the final 63 laps to claim his third career USAC Silver Crown Series victory over Clauson, Kody Swanson, Bacon, Grant, Smith, Casey Shuman, Jerry Coons, Jr., Steve Buckwalter and Shane Cottle.

Like Kody Swanson's stranglehold on the dirt miles over the past few seasons, Windom appears to have taken a shine to the half-mile dirt tracks, previously taking victories at Eldora Speedway in Rossburg Ohio in 2013 and the Belleville (Kans.) High Banks in 2015. In those two races, Windom led a combined 97 of 100 laps. Friday night at Williams Grove, Windom led the final 63 laps of the contest, but putting his RPM-Fred Gormly/RPM Auto Enterprise/Maxim/J & D was no cinch as he had to hold off the hottest open-wheel driver in the nation, Bryan Clauson, in the closing laps.

"Holy cow," Windom exclaimed. "My guys came on the radio with about 10 (laps) to go and screamed at me to go. I saw that (number) 6 car down there and I knew Clauson was coming. What a hell of a race for these fans at the end!"

"I don't think it's really sunk in yet," Windom stated. "With all the history here, I can't believe we're here! This track was awesome. These guys did a great job of prepping it. It was superfast early on in practice and qualifying. It's probably my new favorite Silver Crown track. In the feature, it slicked off there. You just had to be very easy on the top because it built a big curb and it was very easy to jump over. I did it a few times and thought I was going to lose the lead there. At the end, it was just the lap cars that were running side-by-side in front of me and I didn't know what to do. I didn't want to completely come off the top and go to the bottom and have someone drive around me, so I just tried to use them as a pick, and then I saw the 6 car down there, so I had to start sliding, going as quickly as I could."

Noblesville, Indiana's Bryan Clauson hoped to become the first driver since Rodger Ward in 1959 to lead a lap at the Indianapolis 500 and win in a champ car at Williams Grove Speedway in the same season. Clauson came up just short despite a valiant effort after his car experienced mechanical problems during qualifying, finishing second while earning KSE Racing Products/Martens Machine Shop Hard Charger honors in his Klatt Enterprises/Cancer Treatment Centers of America - Jonathan Byrd's Hospitality & Restaurant Group/Beast/Ford.

"We had a tough night all the way around until the feature," Clauson reflected. "But these guys worked hard to get this car good for the feature. We were really strong, especially late. I got to him there and really wanted to run the bottom in (turns) one and two, but I kind of had a lapper pinning me down. I just decided to try and clear him and get up in front of him, but didn't get it done. We made up a lot of ground there late by just driving my butt off to try and get there; I just needed 105 (laps) or so. We dug out of a big hole there and it was a spectacular run there for sure."

Kody Swanson, of Kingsburg, California came home third in his DePalma Motorsports/Radio Hospital - Champion Oil/Maxim/Hampshire Chevy while maintaining his series point lead by 15 over Windom heading into the June 25 "St. Louis Silver Crown Showdown" at Gateway Motorsports Park in Madison, Illinois.

"What an honor it is to be here at Williams Grove and it's great to drive this DePalma family 63," Swanson said. "They're a great family to race for and a great group of people to work on it. They put a great racecar on the track for us every time. I always hate it when I can't win for them, but we gave it everything we had tonight. We struggled a little early, but as the track got a little wider and a little trickier, we were able to find something there late and battle our way up to third."

Contingency award winners at Williams Grove Speedway included C.J. Leary (ProSource Fast Qualifier), Bryan Clauson (KSE Racing Products/Martens Machine Shop Hard Charger) and David Byrne (Wilwood Brakes 13th Place Feature Finisher).

HOLBROOK CATCHES HINKLE LATE FOR TRAIL-WAY 358 SPRINT CAR WIN; RUTHERFORD, UPDEGRAFF, AND CHRONISTER OTHER FRIDAY NIGHT WINNERS

HANOVER, PA (6/10/2016) – David Holbrook sneaked under race-long leader Wyatt Hinkle in the midst of heavy lapped traffic on turn four of lap 22 and drove to his first win of the year in the 25-lap “358” sprint car feature at Trail-Way Speedway Friday night.

“I have to thank lapped cars for their help,” said the Parkton, MD driver upon exiting the Mike Parris-owned Baird Heating & Cooling/Turning Stone Resort & Casino #77 in victory lane, “I kinda lost my mind for a few laps there, and I’m glad I came around.”

Holbrook started fifth, caught Jeff Halligan for fourth on lap four, passed Austin Kirby for third on lap five, and took second from Seth Kearchner on lap 12. He chased polesitter Hinkle for the next ten laps until Hinkle got caught up behind lapped traffic with just over three laps to go.

“We learned some things tonight, and I told the guys I was going to win on turn four, and that’s where it happened,” said Holbrook, “We’ll be back again next time and try to do it again.”

The final margin of victory for Holbrook’s second career Trail-Way win was 2.91 seconds.

Hinkle settled for second, with 12th-starting Isaac Sneeringer third, hard charger Doug Hammaker (who started 16th) fourth, and Kearchner fifth. Completing the top ten were Halligan, Tyler Walton, Randy Whisler, Cody Fletcher, and Mike Bittinger (who came from the back after spinning out on the second lap).

Qualifiers for the 19 sprinters were won by Bittinger and Kearchner.

Mike Rutherford took home $1,250 in prize money after winning the 25-lap Gary Keifert Memorial for the Mason-Dixon 270cc micro sprints. Levi Peck, Nik Gower, Steven Cox, and Chad Myers crossed second through fifth.

Heats for the 31 270s were won by Chad Myers, Nicholas Skias, and Rutherford, with Toby Blumenshine winning the consolation event.

Alex Updegraff of Etters claimed his first career Trail-Way win in the 20-lap street stock feature. He was followed across the line by Jeremy Stremmel, Matt Wampler, Jim Jacobs, and Marshall McMullen.

Street stock heats were won by Aaron Beard and Updegraff.

It was another one-two finish for the Chronisters in the 15-lap limited stock feature. Jason Chronister ran to his second win of the year and 13th of his TW career, crossing .78 seconds ahead of brother Matt. Travis Brown, Charles Millender, and Sarah Redmond were third through fifth.

Julio Perez and Jason Chronister were the heat winners for the 19 limited stocks on hand.

Next Friday, June 17th, Trail-Way Speedway hosts the Precise Racing Products 358 Late Model Series along with the 600 Micro Sprints, ServiceMaster Clean Central PA Legends and the Vintage Cars.

LINCOLN SPEEDWAY

Abbottstown, PA

USAC EASTERN STORM

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Saturday, June 11, 2016 (Time trials @ 7:30 PM) - LEFFLER ENERGY NIGHT/“DIRT CLASSIC” SHOWCASE for 410 Sprints (qualifier for 9/24; $7,000 to win)

CLAUSON WINS 77TH, SIMON FIRST IN USAC WINGLESS SPRINT MAINS AT LINCOLN;

Halligan holds off Leiby, Campbell in 358 sprint thriller

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 6/8/2016 – And the beat goes on for Bryan Clauson after the Noblesville, Indiana driver continued his fairytale season Wednesday night by picking up his fifth USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car feature victory of the season, and 11th overall USAC win, in the 2nd round of the Eastern Storm Tour at Lincoln Speedway.

Clauson ran down Chase Stockon for the lead with just six laps remaining in the caution-free affair to claim his 39th career USAC National Sprint Car victory, just one shy of the legendary Gary Bettenhausen for seventh on the all-time list.

“Chase was pretty good,” Clauson admitted. “He was moving around and I was moving around and we were just kind of staying even. It seemed like once he got to traffic, something happened and he couldn’t get into the corner quite as hard and we were able to track him down. I just kind of threw a half-hearted slider at him just to break his momentum and I don’t know if it surprised him or what, but I never saw him again after that. These races are tough. The competition is so deep in USAC right now. I just feel lucky to be able to drive a racecar as nice as this.”

Clauson lined up third behind front row starters Shane Golobic of California and Joey Biasi of Pennsylvania, but at the start, it was Biasi who took control as the field headed into turns one and two. As the two drag raced down the back straightaway, Golobic was able to mount a charge to grab the lead by a single car length at the line at the completion of lap one.

By lap four, third row starter and Fast Qualifier Chase Stockon began to charge to the front, maneuvering around the outside of Biasi for the second spot in turn one.

On lap six, Stockon had reeled in leader Golobic. The pair blasted side-by-side out of turn two, down the back straight without sparing an inch. As the two came wheel-to-wheel off of four, Stockon stole the leader’s lane, cutting across the nose of Golobic to assume the lead. One lap later, Clauson worked the middle and high grooves to take second away from Biasi with Stockon now his lone target.

Stockon took the high side of the 3/8-mile dirt oval after running low earlier while Clauson continued to search both high and low for the fastest way around. Meanwhile, Chris Windom took third from Golobic on the 12th lap.

Despite applying pressure throughout the middle portion of the 30-lapper, Stockon was able to gain a little breathing room as he distanced himself from Clauson a bit with 13 to go.

With 10 laps left, leader Stockon began to encounter lapped traffic, holding a roughly five-car-length advantage over Clauson in second.

Clauson began to creep ever closer to Stockon, foot-by-foot, inch-by-inch, reeling him in to within an arm’s length distance when Clauson (inside) and Stockon (outside) engaged in a fight that resulted in two near dead-heats at the line on laps 23 and 24, both officially credited to Stockon.

On the 25th lap, Clauson dove to the inside at the entrance of the first turn, pitching his machine sideways to slide up in front of Stockon in turn two, forcing him to slow his momentum, which allowed Clauson to pull away to a good-sized advantage down the back straightaway.

One lap later, when Stockon was still trying to settle back into a groove, Windom used a big run on Stockon heading into turn one, clearing Stockon for second as the duo exited turn two.

In the final laps, Clauson ran away from the pack, taking the victory by a half-straightaway over Windom, Stockon, Thomas Meseraull, Golobic, Ballou, Kevin Thomas, Jr., Biasi, Chad Boespflug and Jerry Coons, Jr.

Clauson has now won an astonishing seven of eight non-wing sprint car starts in the last 11 days.

Wednesday night’s second USAC feature, a 25-lap make-up feature from 2014, the lineup was determined by who finished on the lead lap during the first feature and then completely inverted. Nineteenth place finisher Carmen Perigo, the last driver on the lead lap in the first feature, would start from the pole alongside Landon Simon while first feature winner Clauson lined up 19th.

Perigo led the first two laps from the pole, but Simon would run him down to take the number one spot on lap three.

With five laps to go, it became a three-car race between Simon, Brady Bacon and Aaron Farney.

Bacon closed on Simon until he was right on Simon’s tail tank as the two headed for turn three. Bacon threw a Hail Mary to the treacherous high side in order to find a single ounce of moisture that would propel him past Simon. But it was not to be as Simon took his first career USAC-sanctioned victory and, in fact, Farney was able to make up the ground to beat Bacon to the checkered flag for the second spot.

Ephrata’s Jeff Halligan held off Chandler Leiby and Matt Campbell to score his third career Lincoln win in a thriller that saw all three leaders cross under the flagstand less than three carlengths apart.

Lady driver Brie Hershey led the first nine laps from the pole and was still leading when the Jeff Boll/Mike Miller #91 car went up in smoke entering turn one of lap ten. Halligan, who started eighth, assumed the lead for the restart and led the rest of the way despite heavy pressure from recent high school graduates Leiby and Campbell.

Outside front row starter Jordan Givler crossed fourth, followed by ninth-starting Doug Hammaker. Sixth through tenth were Ashley Cappetta, Brent Shearer, Jeff Rohrbaugh, Todd Rittenhouse, Jr., and Chris Frank.

Heats for the 29 358 sprinters were won by Campbell, Hammaker, and Rittenhouse, with Wyatt Hinkle winning the consolation.

This Saturday, June 11, it will be a special night with the LEFFLER ENERGY “DIRT CLASSIC SHOWCASE” for 410 Sprints (qualifier for 9/24; $7,000 to win). Time trials set for 7:30 PM, gates opening at 5:30 PM.

LINCOLN SPEEDWAY USAC EASTERN STORM

BRYAN CLAUSON NOW TWO FOR TWO IN EASTERN STORM, SIMON CLAIMS FIRST EVER USAC WIN ON THIRLLING NIGHT AT LINCOLN

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA (June 8, 2016) – Noblesville, IN’s Bryan Clauson claimed his second straight Eastern Storm victory in the non-stop 30 lap USAC AMSOIL National Non-Wing Sprint Car Championship event while Tipp City, OH’s Landon Simon picked up his first ever USAC victory in the 25 lap make-up feature. Jeff Halligan held off a determined Chandler Leiby to win the exciting twenty lap 358 Sprint car feature. Twenty-nine USAC sprint cars were on hand with thirty-one 358 sprints taking part in the Wednesday night show at the Lincoln Speedway.

In the first of two USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car Championship Series events, Fremont, CA’s Shane Golobic shot from the pole to take the early lead in the 30 lap A-main event, with Chase Stockon – rocketing on the high-side of the Speedway from the sixth starting position -- following right on his rear bumper. Stockon took the top spot from Golobic on the fifth circuit and pulled a five car lead.

With Stockon powering away, Bryan Clauson charged into 2nd place with his sights set on the leader. Stockon hammered away on the high side as Clauson began to close in just prior to the half way point. Chris Windom made his intentions known as he battled into the third position.

While at one time in Clauson’s sights, Stockon charged forward to an almost 10 car lead while Clauson fought to hold off third place runner, Chris Windom at the halfway point.

Stockon hit lapped traffic on the 18th circuit running in the middle of corners one and two, while Clauson – holding off a hard charging Windom – raced around the high side of the Speedway.

Clauson slid passed Stockon with five-laps remaining quickly pulling a strong lead and claiming his second straight Eastern Storm Victory in a caution free 30 lap event. Clauson earned $6,000 for the victory. Windom would pull by Stockon to claim second position, with Thomas Meseraull and Shane Golobic rounding out the top five finishers.

In the make-up USAC A-main, Landon Simon charged, from the front row, into the lead on the initial start while CJ Leary raced around just inches from the outside guardrail – powering from the sixth starting spot in 2nd position by the third circuit.

The first caution of the evening fell on the ninth lap with an incident that included earlier winner Bryan Clauson and retiring the cars of Thomas Meseraull, Tony DiMattia and Shane Cottle.

Simon launched away on the restart followed quickly by Brady Bacon and Aaron Farney. Switching from running the far top side to the bottom, Bacon closed on Simon running some of his fastest laps of the evening. Inch-by-inch Bacon closed on Simon and was within two car lengths with five laps to go, while Aaron Farney stayed right on their tail.

Bacon moved to the outside coming to the checkered flag but couldn’t make it all the way. Landon Simon would claim his first USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car Championship win. Simon earned $3,000 for the win. Brady Bacon would settle for second, Aaron Farney finished third, Kyle Moody was fourth and CJ Leary came home in fifth.

Ephrata, PA’s Jeff Halligan held off a hard charging Chandler Leiby to pick up the win in the 20 Lap 358 Sprint Car event and claim the $1,000 top prize. Brie Hersey jumped to the early lead before emitting a puff of smoke just prior to the halfway point sidelining the No. 91 machine. Halligan inherited the lead racing hard around the top side with Leiby closing on the bottom. The only other yellow flag flew on the eleventh circuit but that didn’t slow Halligan’s efforts. He ran away at the re-start and claiming his 3rd career Lincoln Speedway victory and his first of the season.

Leiby settled for second place, Matt Campbell finished in third, Jordan Givler in the fourth position and Doug Hammaker completed the top five.

TAYLOR PATIENTLY WAITING

Don Reem and Ryan Taylor Play The Waiting Game; Ensures They Are Still Going To Run

PA Sprint Car News | Justin Snyder

Perkasie, PA | June 8, 2016

Come October as races begin winding down and the cars are pushed into trailers for the final time, Central Pennsylvania sprint car fans are already churning the rumor mill and impatiently awaiting the start of the new season.

There are new paint schemes to see and driver changes aplenty. With every schedule announcement of a local track and every trade show debut, fans just can’t get enough! Sprint Car racing in Central Pennsylvania truly is a year long ordeal.

So when Ryan Taylor announced in mid January that he had teamed up with Don Reem, of Don’s Performance Corner Inc, to field a new 410 Sprint Car ride for Friday night shows at Williams Grove Speedway, fans were excited at the thought of another quality ride taking to the track weekly.

In a time when the cost of racing is at an all time high and weekly car counts often dominate headlines as much as the racing on the track, it was great news to fans and drivers alike to hear that an outsider was venturing into the Sprint Car world as an owner.

Reem, who comes from a drag racing background, was giving up that passion to become a J &J Chassis dealer. He also owns his own engine shop and was looking to create his own power-plant package for Sprint Cars. With Taylor already running J&J Chassis and looking to add to his racing schedule, it seemed like a match made in racing heaven.

However, while Taylor has been a regular at Port Royal Speedway in his family owned No.20 on Saturday nights, he has not been seen in the much talked about Friday night ride yet this season.

And the fans have started to ask questions.

Is the owner out of money already? Is he packing it up before ever getting started? Will this deal every come together? Taylor has heard it all.

“I appreciate the support and I understand the excitement of the fans,” said Taylor. “Trust me, I would love to be racing more and be honing my skills behind his Sprint Car.”

“But the truth is that it takes a lot of time and money to put these types of deals together and he’s just making sure to get things right before we hit the track,” added Taylor.

The car is sitting ready to be raced and Reem is putting together the final touches on the motor program. He also has been gutting and refurbishing a trailer that was purchased from the family of the late Kramer Williamson to be ready to head to the track.

While it has been a slow process, Taylor is staying upbeat and is ready whenever the final product is ready to hit the track.

“As of right now I’m just staying in touch with Don and trying to keep up with where things are at,” said Taylor. “He’s two hour away from me, so I can’t be at the shop as much as I’d like. He made a lot of progress in a small time and I’m just patiently waiting for the final product to be complete.”

When he’s not racing, Taylor letters Sprint Cars, signs and banners as owner of Ryan Taylor Graphics. Working for himself, along with driving a family owned machine on a regular basis, he can appreciate the time and effort it takes to get things off the ground from nothing.

“When we first talked I told him not to be in any rush to get things together as there are plenty of races in PA to race at,” said Taylor, a 6-time winner on the 410 circuit. “He wants things to look nice and be done right and I believe that’s a good way to go about it when you are starting new. It’s certainly been a process, but I hope we are out there sooner than later.”

Until then, Taylor will continue to pilot his Accelerated Surface Finishing, Evans Heat Treating machine at Port Royal. He had planned to run for points there throughout the season, but due to a lack of funding the team may pick and choose going forward where they run.

He has been really impressed with the improvements made at Susquehanna Speedway and enjoys racing on their surface. He also likes the Yellow Breeches 500 races being offered at Williams Grove Speedway, which pays $500 to start and is equivalent to that of Knoxville Raceway and is the highest of its kind in the central PA area.

“I think we are going to have to take a look and reevaluate where we are at on a weekly basis,” said Taylor. “We are really only budgeted for Port Royal every week, but if we can hit some of these other shows instead and make a little more money; it only makes sense from a business standpoint.”

The biggest problem they face is that their motor program does not stand up well against some of the other teams in the pits weekly. Because of that, they are attempting to make it through the season on one motor

“Motor builders tell you what you can do limit wise on these things and we are trying to make it last all year,” said Taylor. “Rider Racing Engines gives us great stuff, but we really are just hanging on and hoping for the best.”

As a result, he’ll continue to run as much as possible and hope for the best.

“I don’t do this for a living and I’m certainly not making any money off racing, “said Taylor. “I love racing Sprint Cars and being out there on the track. So I’m just going to stay optimistic and everything will come together in the end.”

THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES

NAPA AUTO PARTS THUNDER ON THE RACING SERIES OPENS 27TH SEASON AT GRANDVIEW. . . .

BRYAN CLAUSON TOPS USAC EASTERN STORM AS RICK LAUBACH WIN 30 LAP NASCAR 358 MODIFIED FEATURE TUESDAY NIGHT

BECHTELSVILLE, PA JUNE 7, 2016 . . . . . . Bryan Clauson of Noblesville, IN thrilled a big crowd winning the forty lap Jesse Hockett Classic AMSOIL USAC non-wing sprint car feature Tuesday night at the Grandview Speedway. Clauson won the feature that saw as many as five cars challenging for the win. At one point of the race, the leaders were four wide charging off of turn four. Clauson earned $6,000 for the win. In the thirty lap modified feature, Rick Laubach from Quakertown, PA led the entire distance after shaking off some challenges from Keith Hoffman and later in the race, Tim Buckwalter to earn the $3,000 first place prize. This event marked the 119th Thunder on the Hill Racing Series event presented by Pioneer Pole Buildings.

A field of thirty USAC non-wing sprint cars took part in the program with Bryan Clauson setting fast time, stopping the clock at 13.664. Four USAC heats races were presented with victories going to Chad Boespflug, Dave Darland, Chris Windom and Robert Ballou as Bryan Clauson won the “B” event.

Thirty-one modifieds took part in three qualifying events with victories going, Craig VonDohren, Tim Buckwalter and Ray Swinehart as John Willman won the modified consolation.

At the drop of the green in the 40 lap Jesse Hockett Classic, you could tell this was going to be a good one. Tony DiMattia set the early lead with Kevin Thomas and Jarett Andretti in the chase. Thomas took the lead on lap eight with Andretti now in second. The battle heated up on lap twelve as Andretti challenged Thomas for the lead. After a few slide jobs, Andretti moved into the lead. For at least six laps, Andretti and Thomas traded the lead with each corner. By lap seventeen, Thomas was back on top but just two laps later, Andretti was again the race leader.

With the cross flags showing on lap twenty, Andretti, Thomas, Chris Windom, Bryan Clauson and Robert Ballou were the top five and all in contention for the lead. On lap twenty-four, Clauson moved into the lead but Andretti refused to settle for second as he went back knocking on the door in search of the lead.

Kevin Thomas moved into second on lap twenty-eight and set his sights on the leading Clauson. Thomas Meseraulla advanced to fourth and Robert Ballou rounded out the top five. Clauson quickly established a solid lead but Kevin Thomas refused to settle for second and with each remaining lap, tried to reel in Clauson. The racing deep in the pack offered plenty of passing but back at the front of the pack, Chris Windom was on a charge now racing in third.

For the final laps, Clauson ran a flawless race to earn the victory followed by Kevin Thomas, Chris Windom and Thomas Meseraull.

The $3,000 to win 358 NASCAR Modified feature saw Rick Laubach lead the entire thirty lap distance. Early in the race Keith Hoffman put the pressure on followed by Tim Buckwalter. On lap seven, the caution was displayed for Hoffman who spun in turn two. This gave Buckwalter a shot to challenge Laubach but Buckwalter to settle into second to hold off a charging Ryan Godown.

At the halfway point of the race, Laubach, Buckwalter, Godown, Craig VonDohren and Brett Kressley made up the top five.

On lap twenty-two, Buckwalter started to trim down the big lead held by Laubach. Each lap, Buckwalter inched closer but a lapped car between Laubach and Buckwalter definitely played to the advantage of Laubach.

With the checker flag waiving, Laubach took the victory over Tim Buckwalter, Ryan Godown, Craig VonDohren and Brett Kressley.

40 Lap Jesse Hockett Classic USAC Feature Finish: Bryan Clauson, Kevin Thomas, Jr., Chris Windom, Thomas Meseraull, Jarett Andretti, Robert Ballou, Max McGhee, Brady Bacon, Tony DiMattia, Dave Darland, Shane Golobic, Chad Boespflug, C.J.

SHOULD SUSQUEHANNA BE INCLUDED? DRIVERS AND FANS SOUND OFF

PA Sprint Car News | Justin Snyder

York Haven, PA | June 7, 2016

Central Pennsylvania racing is full of tradition. Some of the greatest drivers to ever strap into a 410 Sprint Car have run at the various speedways spread throughout the Keystone state.

Whether it’s taking on the World of Outlaws or Tony Stewart’s All Star Circuit of Champions or a regular point’s show at any of the local tracks, you can bet that the grandstands will be packed by loyal fans cheering on the drivers.

One of the biggest traditions and events that fans look forward to yearly is Pennsylvania Speedweek.
This year is the 25th Anniversary of the event and it features 9 races spread across 10 days at 7 different tracks from June, 24- July 3, 2016.
Williams Grove Speedway and Port Royal Speedway both will have 2 speedweek shows with single dates slotted for Lincoln Speedway, Path Valley, Grandview, Hagerstown and Selinsgrove.

With increased sponsorship and support, this year’s spectacle will offer the largest point fund in series history of $25,000, with $10,000 of that going to the series champion. A total of $250,000.00 will be given out in prize money throughout the 10 days.

However, with all the excitement building for the anniversary year event, one track is absent from the schedule and dominating headlines with a recent announcement.
Susquehanna Speedway, one of the pioneer tracks from the inaugural 1991 PA Speedweek series won by Steve Smith, was not included on the 2016 schedule.

As a result of sponsor commitments with BAPS and being left out, they decided to schedule a two-division 410 and 305 Sprint Car event June 23, that fans have dubbed the unofficial PA Speedweek opener due to it taking place the one day before the official kickoff.

Once considered a staple on the schedule, Susquehanna has not been a part of PA Speedweek since it last hosted an event in 2005.
However with new ownership by Scott Gobrecht and a complete new promotion team making huge improvements to the facility, many expected them to be a shoe-in for this year’s event.
“It’s awesome to see a track that’s putting money back into the speedway and you can see that it’s paying off by not only the car counts, but the amount of fans that are in the stands,” said Ryan Taylor, 410 sprint car driver of the No.20 Accelerated Surface Finishing, Evans Heat Treating. “I think it be awesome if they had a Speedweek date.”

Duane Marriot, a fan who has been visiting the track since the 80’s, agreed with Taylor and believes that the fans and drivers are missing out with the exclusion.
“Some things never change and Susquehanna is the raciest track in Pennsylvania in my opinion,” exclaimed Marriot. “The history of the place alone should reserve a Speedweek spot in itself.”

If it’s history that we are talking about, you can look no farther than local racing legend and recent Sprint Car Hall of Fame inductee Don Kreitz Jr. for support.
Kreitz, who retired from competition last year after dealing with concussion-like symptoms, has been one of the most successful drivers in the history of Susquehanna Speedway.

He appreciates the hard work the track team has put in and would like to see them once again be rewarded as part of Speedweek in an official status.
“With the improvements they made there, I think they deserve a spot in Speedweek,” said Kreitz, who scored PA Speedweek victories at Susquehanna Speedway in 1992, 1998 and 2001. “Plus it’s not a far tow for us.”

Travelling distance is important as he is now a car owner for fellow Central PA racing legend, Lance Dewease.

Dewease, who picked up Speedweek wins at the track in 1994 and 1997 and is among the most successful drivers in PA Speedweek history with 19 career wins and 3 Speedweek championships, agrees with his car owner. “They have been a part of Central PA sprint car racing for 30 plus years and with what the new owners have done with the place, it just makes sense. They should be able to have a Speedweek show.”

When fans heard of the announcement, many wondered why with Williams Grove and Port Royal getting two dates, that one of those extra nights could not have gone to accommodate Susquehanna.

“The fact that there are tracks with two races during that week means there is definitely a day for them,” said Karen Lavigna, a local fan. “Tracks only need one day. Hopefully this will happen and we’ll be there (in support).”

Brent Marks, driver of the M&M Painting & Construction, BAPS Auto Paint & Supply, No.19M, would also like to see Susquehanna included in Speedweek festivities and less tracks with multiple dates.

As a young driver gaining experience, he has opened up his schedule to include many different tracks throughout the country in the past few years. As a result, he believes it would only add to the challenge of competing in the series and make it more enjoyable for the fans and drivers.

“First off, I’m not a fan of the tracks getting multiple races,” said Marks, who will be searching for his first PA Speedweek victory in 2016. “I’d like to race a different track every night. I think it would be more fun and more challenging.”

“Even if it was on the Monday that we have off, the car count and the fan support is there for this race track. It’s a win-win for everyone,” Marks added.

With owner, driver and fan support, you can bet that Susquehanna Speedway will be in discussions for future Speedweek events at the track. Until then, you can support the track by attending the Thursday Night Thunder event June 23.

THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES

NAPA AUTO PARTS THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES PRESENTS. . . .

COUNTLESS CONTENDERS MAKE USAC EASTERN STORM AT GRANDVIEW A MUST-SEE EVENT TUESDAY NIGHT JUNE 7 AT 7:30 PM

BECHTELSVILLE, PA (June 5, 2016) – Lightning fast, bouncing-off-the-cushion, wheelie-popping, barely completing a slide-job action – a staple event for any true race fan.

That’s what the ultra-exciting USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car Series brings to Grandview Speedway this Tuesday, June 7 for NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series. The 10th Annual Eastern Storm, featuring a double-header of non-wing sprint car drivers from all over the country – in their only east coast tour -- plus action from the exciting NASCAR 358 Modifieds, the premiere weekly division at the Bechtelsville high-banks. Gates open at 5 PM with race time set for 7:30 PM.

Mix the top open-wheel drivers in the country, the unpredictability of Grandview Speedway, with a $6,000 winner’s share and you have a battle like no other – a countless number of drivers could take home the victory.

Defending race winner, Chase Stockon of Fort Branch, Indiana currently sits third in the series points standings. The 28-year-old competitor has proven he knows the quick way around Grandview’s 1/3-mile – capturing the 2014 edition of the Hockett Classic besting a hard charging Jon Stanbrough.

Standing in Stockon’s path is 2015 USAC National Series Champion and 2015 Eastern Storm Champion, Robert Ballou. It’s been nearly two weeks since the USAC National Sprint Series took to the track at Terre Haute Action Track – where Ballou took home the victory. The Rocklin, California native is an easy favorite after claiming a near-record 13 series victories in 2015.

2014 Eastern Storm Champion, Brady Bacon charges into Grandview with the current series point lead over Thomas Meseraull – both contenders in the 40-lap Jesse Hockett Classic. On a chase to complete 200-races this season -- and fresh off a start in the 100th running of the Indianapolis 500 -- 2-time Eastern Storm champion Bryan Clauson has had previous success at Grandview Speedway, winning the 2012 event.

Series regulars Dave Darland, C.J. Leary, Kyle Cummins and Chad Boespflug are all expected in attendance. While local drivers from a variety of divisions are planning on competing including Kyle Moody, Tony DiMattia, Trevor Kobylarz, and Mark Smith.

The 358 Modifieds compete in a 30-lap event with a $3,000 top prize. The event is open to all 358 Modified competitors that meet Grandview rule specifications. Competitors will draw for heat starting positions, where the top-12 qualified cars will re-draw for feature starting positions. The 30-lap event pays $1,000 for a fifth-place finish and $300 to start.

Grandview Speedway kicked off the initial Eastern Storm swing of USAC National Sprint Car Series events in June of 2007, at its inception and has remained one of the most popular events of the week.
