Port Royal Speedway The Only Place To See Super Sprints And Super Lates Every Saturday Night

A Capsule Look At Port Royal Dream Race 2014

7/28/14

What, Where, When: The Port Royal Speedway Living Legends Dream Race honoring Lance Dewease and Maynard Boop is this Saturday, August 2 at 7 pm. Gates will open at 4 pm. The adult general admission price is $27 with students ages 12 – 18 admitted for JUST $5.

What’s It About: The Living Legends Dream Race was begun at Port Royal Speedway in 2007 as a way to post a lucrative payoff for Pennsylvania’s 410 sprint car stars that didn’t force them to compete against an outside sanctioning body for the money. It also includes a boatload of free contingency prizes and cash, this year amounting to over $10,000 in value. In short, it’s a way to give back to all the local drivers in a special way.

Special This Year: As part of honoring Lance Dewease and Maynard Boop as Living Legends this year, a group of former Boop drivers and Dewease owners will be on hand for autographs under the grandstand from 5 to 6 pm. Aside from Dewease and Boop, those taking part in the meet and greet are Boop drivers Lynn Paxton, Randy Wolfe and Ed Zirkle along with Boop mechanics Dave Brown Sr. and Ralph Heintzelman Sr. For Dewease the list includes owners Joe Templin, Harry Earnest, Walt Dyer, Al Hamilton, Pete Postupack, Donny Owens and Scott and Chris Dietz. Honors will be bestowed upon Dewease and Boop during the racing program. Several restored and replica Boops No. 1 and Dewease mounts will be on display behind the grandstand along with Dewease’s current No. 14 mount.

How It Works: Sprint car teams will time trial and then those in even qualifying spots and those in odd qualifying spots will be split into respective groups. Each of those batches of cars will compete in a 16-lap semi-main event that pays a full purse of nearly $10,000 each with $2,000 to the winner. The semis will be lined up with an invert of four however the fast timer in each semi will have the option to reach into a bag for a 50/50 shot at pulling out a 0 or a 6 for the invert. The top 10 finishers from each semi advance to a 35-lap A Main paying $10,000 to win. The top three finishers from each semi will revenge draw against each other to establish the front three rows of the Dream starting grid while all others line up according to their finishing position in the semis. Each lap of the semis and the A Main pays $20 to lead. After the A feature a non-qualifiers race will be run paying $500 to win and $150 to start. A B Main will fill out the A field plus a fan voted 25th starter will be added to the field.

On The Line: With the addition of a non-qualifiers race last season, the total purse money posted for this year’s dream race is again over $55,000. The contingency cash up for grabs on the night is worth over $3,000 and the contingency prizes have reached a value of about $10,000. The minimum prize value is $50 so that value coupled with last place pay in a semi of $200 and starting money in the non-qualifiers race of $150 means that no car should leave the track after entering with less than $400 in accrued earnings on the night.

What Fans Can Expect: Extremely competitive racing action will unfold for the Dream event as no heat races are conducted but instead the twin semi mains will advance drivers to the big dance while also paying handsomely. How each driver finishes the semis will determine where they start in the Dream feature. And then nearly $35,000 alone is up for grabs in the Dream A feature which promises to be highly rewarding both in stature and finances. There is no opportunity for teams and drivers to skip a beat, miss a step or lay back for a second chance as they try to come away big winners.

Marks Scores First Port Royal Win Against Strong Field, Smith Gets First In Lates

Tyler Bear becomes first repeat winner in Port 305 action

7/26/14

Port Royal ? Brent Marks beat a highly competitive field of 410 sprints to record his first ever Port Royal Speedway victory on Saturday night, taking $3,000 for the win while becoming the 11th different winner in 12 events held at the track so far this season.

In the super late model main Tim Smith Jr. continued the trend of no repeat winners in the division by becoming the 10th different pilot to visit victory lane in as many races this season while also setting a new 20-lap track record in the affair.

And in the 305 sprint main Tyler Bear became the first repeat winner of the year in the class.

Marks started second in the 25-lap 410 sprint main and took the lead when the race began over Ryan Taylor and Doug Esh.

Fifth starter Rick Lafferty had no problem passing in the event and drove up to second with three away in the race before the first caution flag of the event unfurled with five in the book.

The restart placed Lafferty, Esh, Taylor and Mike Wagner in line behind the leader.

Greg Hodnett blasted from sixth to fourth when action resumed while eighth starter Blane Heimbach also began a march into contention.

A second and final caution period regrouped the field with 12 laps to go, finding Heimbach up to fifth by that point.

Hodnett jumped into third on the restart and as the race wound down Lafferty began significantly biting into Marks? advantage.

With five to go the front four cars of Marks, Lafferty, Heimbach now up to third and Hodnett were within a half straightaway of each other, working through traffic to finish the race.

With less than three laps to go Lafferty made his move for the win, taking the lead underneath Marks in the second corner but when Marks saw his challenger it seemed to hoist his elbows up just a bit.

The Myerstown driver moved down as the pair raced onto the backstretch and got enough of a run to pinch Lafferty off and slip back into the lead just before the scoreboard.

From that point on Marks went into defense, protecting the bottom groove to hold onto the win by .572 seconds at the finish.

Lafferty was second with Heimbach third followed by Hodnett and 10th starter Lance Dewease.

Sixth through 10th went to Mike Wagner, Esh, Dave Ely, Aaron Ott and Taylor.

Heats for the 25-car field went to Wagner, Hodnett and Taylor.

Derrick Casner led only the first lap of the 20-lap late model main before Tim Smith Jr. took over at the helm.

Rance Garlock motored by Casner for second with five laps in the book but failed to close on Smith for the lead, instead being forced to contend with point leader Mike Lupfer.

Lupfer wrestled second from Garlock with 12 laps to go and was able to close in on Smith but he couldn?t get close enough to mount a challenge.

Smith ended up taking two seconds off of the 20-lap track record, establishing a new mark at 7:14.004.

Matt Parks blasted into third, getting around Garlock with a third turn flyer after starting seventh in the field.

Garlock was fourth and Tim Wilson was fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Mitch Hack, Nick Dickson, Casner, Scott Flickinger and Brett Schadel.

Heats for the 17-car field went to Schadel and Garlock.

Erin Statler led the first 12 laps of the 20-lap 305 sprint feature before Tyler Bear got to the front to take control.

Wayne Dadetto trailed Statler early on before Bear entered the mix, shuffling him to third at the finish.

Paul Snyder rode home fourth with Eric Parker finishing fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Jeff Miller Jr., Jake Waters, Scott Ellerman, John Braim and Mike Wagner II.

Heats for the 21-car field went to Statler, Wagner II., and Parker.

MONTIETH SCORES CAREER 43RD IN LINCOLN PEPSI NIGHT 410 SPRINT CAR FEATURE;

Chase Dietz pads points lead with second 2014 “358” sprint car win; Aaron Bowes wins 600 Modified special

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 7/26/2014 – Brian Montieth said it was tough, but the four-time track champ made it look easy in scoring his second win of the year and 43rd victory of his career at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

“I knew it was going to be tough. Luckily, we all started back there,” said Montieth upon exiting the Jerry Parrish-owned Auto Locator/Premier Auto Works #21 in victory lane, “I thought Alan (Krimes) was gone. I’m trying to put the pressure on him because he can’t tear the car up. He HAS to finish races to try and win this championship, and I can ball one up. I’d love see him win it, but I’d like to come from that far behind to take this thing, too.”

Montieth, who missed a race while vacationing earlier in the year, moved into second in points behind Krimes with the 4.25-second win over Krimes.

Montieth started tenth and caught Krimes for fifth on lap six. He got buy Billy Dietrich to move into fourth a lap later, took third from Matt Boland (with Dietrich and Krimes following him through) on lap nine, and moved around early-race leader Tim Wagaman on lap 13.

At the time, race leader Ryan Wilson (who started second and took the lead from polesitter Wagaman on lap eight) enjoyed a 3.85-second lead.

Montieth reduced Wilson’s lead to 1.5 seconds by the time the only caution of the race came out for Bradley Howard’s spin in turn two of lap 19. Howard collected Gerard McIntyre in the spin, and the yellow put Montieth on Wilson’s tail for the restart.

“He (Wilson) was getting into that dirty air there in lapped traffic. He was starting to have to make choices what he wanted to do when he got to those care, and it’s always better running second than running first.”

Montieth made short work of Wilson, sliding in front of him through turns one and two of the restart. Krimes caught Wilson a lap later, but had nothing for the four-time track champ.

“I enjoy coming to this place versus everywhere else,” said Montieth, “I’m a short track guy and I just love this.”

Danny Dietrich came from 12th starting spot to catch Wilson for third with two laps to go. Wilson settled for fourth with Billy Dietrich fifth. Sixth through tenth were Cory Haas, 15th-starting Adam Wilt, Wagaman, Freddie Rahmer, and Jim Siegel.

Heats for the 22 410 sprinters were won by Krimes, Billy Dietrich, and Montieth.

York’s Chase Dietz padded his points lead by winning his second of the year and third of his Lincoln career in the non-stop “358” sprint car feature.

Dietz, scheduled to start ninth, moved up one row when Phil Walter lost his brakes and stopped on the backstretch of the first lap. He came from seventh-starting spot to catch polesitter and race-long leader Chris Arnold on lap six. Dietz was actually running third by the end of the first lap. From there, he navigated methodically through lapped traffic as the non-stop laps clicked off. He took the checkered flag in front of eighth-starting Jeff Rohrbaugh in a time of 5 minutes, 47 seconds.

Third through fifth were Matt Campbell, 11th-starting Tyler Ross, and Chandler Leiby.

Defending track champ Niki Young, second in 2014 points, finished seventh.

Heats for the 28 358 sprinters were won by Walter, Leiby, and Mike Bittinger, with Cody Fletcher winning the consolation.

Nazareth’s Aaron Bowes took the $3,000 top prize in the highest-paying Xcel Chassis 600 Modified Tour event ever held over the 10-year history of the division. It was Bowes’ four straight Tour win.

Because he won the last event, Bowes was forced to start ninth in the event. He proceeded to pass a car a lap to take the lead from polesitter and race-long leader Ian Williamson on the ninth lap. Bowes led the rest of the way, crossing a half-second in front of Richie Hitzler, with Jonathan Pepe, Cody Coons, and 15th-starting Jason Dunkleberger rounding out the top five.

Heats for the 35 600 Modifieds were won by Abbey Price, Bowes, Hitzler, and Jonathon Pepe, with Kyle Fallis winning the consolation.

Next Saturday night, Sat., August 2nd, the 358 Sprinters headline the evening’s racing action with the 358 SPRINT CAR CHAMPIONSHIP. They will be joined by the Central PA Legends, 600cc Micro-Sprints, & All-American Outlaws. Gates will open at 5:50 PM, with heats taking the green at 7:30 PM.

McCLELLAND MANEUVERS FIELD FOR 5TH 358 SPRINT WIN AT T-W;

LAUGHMAN HOLDS OFF TRONE FOR 270 MICRO WIN;

MONTGOMERY WINS CENTRAL PA LEGENDS BATTLE;

CHRONISTER DOMINATES LIMITED STOCK FEATURE

Hanover, PA (07/25/14) – Points leader Brad McClelland and Robbie Kendall battled with each other and lapped traffic for the better part of the 25-lap 358 Sprint Car feature. McClelland made the race wining pass when Kendall slid high in turns 1 and 2 of lap 15.

“I kind of messed up right behind [Kendall],” said McClelland in victory lane, but McClelland was able to save the car and battle lapped traffic to claim his 5th win of the season.

But prior to that, polesitter Zach Euculano paced the field for the first 8 laps before getting out of shape exiting turn 4 and allowing Kendall to sneak by to take the lead.

McClelland also got by Euculano to take the second spot and closed on the new leader. McClelland followed Kendall for 6 laps until Kendall got out of shape as the duo caught the end of the field.

“[Kendall] was on the top, and I was on the bottom,” explained McClelland of the lapped traffic in which he passed Kendall for the lead, “I got a good run and it helped me out. But hey, it was fun.”

Five laps after taking the lead and 4 lapped cars later, McClelland finally saw open track in front of him. However, he nearly caught the tail-end of the field again as the checkered flag waved.

Kendall crossed 2.12 seconds behind McClelland and was awarded second. Third through fifth were Dwight Leppo, Euculano, and Shane Smith. Cody Fairchok, Tyler Buchenauer, Seth Kearchner, Isaac Sneeringer, and Randy Whisler completed the top ten.

McClelland was also presented with the Hard Charger Award as he came from 6th-starting spot to win.

Heat winners for the 15 358 Sprint Cars were won by Tyler Buchenauer and McClelland.

Bill Laughman started 6th for 270cc Micro Sprint feature, but found his way to the front to lead every lap of the 20-lap event. Joe Trone, Jr., who started outside the front row, followed Laughman for the entire race. Trone attempted to take the lead as the leaders closed on lapped traffic, but Laughman skillfully maneuvered around the slower cars to maintain the lead.

With Laughman and Trone approaching the checkered flag, the only caution of the event flew for Steven Cox who came to a stop in turn 1.

On the restart, Laughman pulled away from Trone and secured the victory. Trone crossed second with Joey Long, Cory Myers, and Brian Marriott rounding out the top five.

Qualifier winners for the 15 270cc Micro Sprints were Long and Laughman.

Lucas Montgomery fought his way from 10th-starting spot to claim the 20-lap Central PA Legends Car feature. But it didn’t come easily.

Montgomery became the fourth leader in the event when he went around Bill Diehl to take the lead on the 14th lap.

The race began with 2nd-starting Chris Transeau leading the first 2 laps. But then second place runner Chris Spidle and Transeau made contact exiting turn 2. The caution came out for a spin by Transeau and resulted in a rough-riding call on Spidle, sending both to the rear. Scott Gobrecht, who had been running 3rd, assumed the lead.

Gobrecht only led 1 lap before Diehl dove to the inside to take away the lead. The drivers running 2nd through 5th shuffled positions multiple times until Montgomery found his way to second on lap 13. It was the next lap that Montgomery made the pass on Diehl.

Diehl settled for second with Jacob Feltch, Bill Foster, and 17th-starting Bob Stough completing the top five.

Central PA Legends Car heats for the 18 cars were won by Spidle and Diehl.

Matt Chronister came from 9th-starting spot to claim his 5th win of the season in the 15-lap Limited Stock feature. Fourth-starting Terry Hartlaub stole the lead from outside front row starter Kenny Startzman on the second lap. Hartlaub led 6 laps until Chronister made a bold move for the top spot.

Chronister and Kyle Rohrbaugh (running 4th and 3rd respectively) split the 2nd place car of Shannon Weaver. Chronister took the high side and came across the line to lead lap 8.

From there, Points leader Chronister pulled away to a 4.84 second victory over Hartlaub, who finished second. Third through fifth were Rohrbaugh, 14th- starting Tom Senseney, and 11th-starting Cory Weishaar.

Matt Chronister and Startzman picked up the heat wins for the 19 Limited Stocks on hand.

Next Friday (8/1), Trail-Way will host the 358 Sprint Cars, Limited Stocks, Central PA Legends, and Street Stocks. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. and racing begins at 7:30 p.m.

Brent Marks Turns Tables On Hodnett For Williams Grove Sprints Win

Doug Hammaker scores for first time ever in 358 sprints

7/25/14

Mechanicsburg ? Brent Marks turned the tables on Greg Hodnett at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night and instead of chasing him to the checkers in the 410 sprint feature as he did a week earlier he took the win ahead of the oval point leader for his first Grove victory of the season.

In the 358 sprint main it was Doug Hammaker taking his first career win at the oval while becoming just the fourth driver to take a checkered flag in the division at the track this season.

Kyle Reinhardt started second in the 25 lap 410 sprint feature and took the lead at the start over Ryan Bohlke while Marks started in the sixth spot and drove to third on just the first lap.

Reinhardt would prove a formidable foe with the lead however as even on a restart after a flip by Danny Dietrich with six laps down Marks? failed to net the lead.

Instead Reinhardt thwarted Marks? advances in the corners however his entry into the backmarkers for the leader proved even more challenging and that?s where Marks was able to make his move.

Once working traffic Reinhardt suffered with being forced out of his rhythym and Marks drove low to take control with a third turn move with nine laps to go.

After falling to second Reinhardt suffered in traffic and contact with a lapped car the next time around sent him into the outside wall, setting up a final restart, still with nine laps to go.

Doug Esh lined up second ahead of Hodnett and Don Kreitz Jr. for the restart and when action resumed Esh got held up by a lapped car allowing Myers to drive away while Hodnett and Kreitz pounced for second.

Hodnett got the spot on the restart but failed to close on Marks, instead being forced to deal with Kreitz.

The pair waged a spirited battle over the final five laps with Hodnett holding on for the spot.

Kreitz was third followed by Esh and Aaron Ott.

Sixth through 10th went to Brian Montieth, Steve Buckwalter, Ryan Bohlke, Justin Barger and Alan Krimes.

Heats for the 29-car field went to Kreitz, Barger and Lance Dewease with Rick Lafferty taking the consolation.

Leah Starner led the first four laps of the 20-lap 358 sprint main before sixth starter Doug Hammaker took control of the race.

His pace was halted twice during the rest of his run at the front, once at the halfway point and again a lap later.

But both times Hammaker was able to get away from the field all the while point leader Kevin Nouse worked his way forward.

Nouse took second with five laps to go but failed to drive down any distance on Hammaker, who took the win by a straightaway.

Starner held on for third followed by Chris Arnold and Chandler Leiby.

Heats for the 17-car field went to Adrian Shaffer and Phil Walter.

July 25, 2014 Feature Finish:

410 sprints, 25 laps: 1. Brent Marks, 2. Greg Hodnett, 3. Don Kreitz Jr., 4. Doug Esh, 5. Aaron Ott, 6. Brian Montieth, 7. Steve Buckwalter, 8. Ryan Bohlke, 9. Justin Barger, 10. Alan Krimes, 11.

The NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series returns to the “hill” on Tuesday night, July 29 with round two, a spectacular double-header that will find the 410 Sprints and Race of Champions Modifieds on the same program.

As a special thank you to our competitors, the back gate will be $30 and a license is not required. All this racing with a purse of nearly $50,000 will take place at the Grandview Speedway in Bechtelsville, PA on Tuesday night, July 29. Gates will open at 5 PM with race time set for 7:30 PM.

In the July 2013 running of this event, Greg Hodnett won the 410 sprint feature as Duane Howard charged home the winner of the sixty lap Race of Champions Modified feature. On July 1 of 2014, this same event was presented and Hodnett and Howard once again earned their place in the Grandview Speedway victory lane. So the question remains, can Hodnett and Howard make it three in a row?

SNEERINGER BREAKS OWN TRACK RECORD IN WINNING TRAIL-WAY 358 SPRINTS;

GALLAGHER HOLDS OFF KNAUB FOR 358 LATE MODEL WIN;

FURMAN NOW FOUR-FOR-EIGHT IN STREET STOCKS;

JASON CHRONISTER HOLDS OFF BROTHER IN LIMITED STOCKS

Hanover, PA (07/18/14) –Hanover’s Isaac Sneeringer set a new track record in winning his second race of the season in the 25-lap “358” sprint car feature at Trail-Way Speedway Friday night.

He had to.

Four-time winner Brad McClelland was hot on his tail.

“I knew if I made one mistake it was all over,” said Sneeringer upon exiting his DCI/Todd A. Gosnell Paving #19Z, “I’m exhausted.”

Sneeringer started fourth and grabbed the lead from outside front row starter Randy Whisler on lap three. Sixth-starting McClelland took second from Whisler on lap four and tracked down the leader as the two raced through lapped traffic in the non-stop feature. Though he challenged several times, McClelland was unable to make the pass.

“I was so hard on the brakes my left leg is killing me right now,” said Sneeringer, “I need to get a membership at Gold’s Gym because my arms are worn out.”

Sneeringer’s 25-lap time was 6:01.32, breaking his own 2012 record of 6:03.94.

Trail-Way points leader McClelland settled his second straight second-place finish, with Jeff Halligan, Whisler, and 12th-starting hard charger Dwight Leppo (last week’s winner) completing the top five.

Heats for the 13 “358” sprint cars were won by McClelland and Cody Fletcher.

Sam Gallagher started on the outside of the front row and led every lap of the 25-lap Precise Racing Products “358” late model feature. But his win didn’t come easy either, holding off sixth-starting Gene Knaub over the final 15 laps for his first career Trail-Way late model win.

Knaub tried to make the pass each time the leaders went through turns one and two, but was never able to get the upper hand and settled for second. Third through fifth were Cam Zeigler, Bobby Beard, and Pat Beard.

Heats for the 18 “358” late models were won by Knaub, Pat Beard, and Zeigler.

Dan Furman raced to his fourth win in eight events in the 20-lap street stock feature.

Furman started eighth and climbed through the field to grab the race lead from Pat McClane on lap ten.

He led the second half of the race despite heavy pressure from Michael Goodwin and McClane the rest of the way.

Goodwin finished second, followed by McClane, Cory Weishaar, and Joey Harrison.

Qualifiers for the 14 street stocks were won by McClane and Goodwin

The Chronisters finished first and second again in the 15-lap limited stock feature.

But this time, it was Jason holding off Matt for the win, his second of the year to go along with points leader Matt’s four wins on the year.

Jason started sixth and took the lead from Kenny Startzman on the second lap. Matt started tenth and took second from Ricky Weaver, Jr. on lap six. But Matt was never able to pass his brother, and settled for the runner-up spot.

Third through fifth were Ricky Weaver, Tom Senseney, and 12th-starting Kyle Rohrbaugh.

Heats for the 18 limited stocks were won by Cody Klinedinst and Startzman.

Next Friday (7/25), Trail-Way will host the 358 Sprint Cars, Limited Stocks, 270cc Micro Sprints, and Central Pa Legends. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. and racing begins at 7:30 p.m.

7/14/14

Port Royal  A host of notables will be turning out to honor sprint car driver Lance Dewease and car owner Maynard Boop at the Living Legends Dream Race at Port Royal Speedway slated for August 2.

And a host of their cars will be on hand for the celebratory event as well.

Now just one win shy of the 300 victory mark overall in 410 sprints with 96 of them having come at Port Royal alone, Dewease has driven for the most prolific car owners the region has hosted over the years.

So far on the list to gather and celebrate his career and sign autographs before the race at Port Royal is owners Al Hamilton, Pete Postupack, Donny Owens, Walt Dyer, Mike Heffner and Chris Dietz along with the owners that started the veteran out as a hired gun, Mr. Harry Earnest and Mr. Joe Templin.

Dyer himself will pull an as-is Dewease-driven No. 461 out of his private museum to put on display at the Dream Race while a version of the famed red ?Brickmobile? from the 1994 season will also be on display.

No less than four restored Boop?s Aluminum Special No. 1 sprint cars will be on display at the event to help celebrate 93-year old Maynard Boops anointment as a Port Royal Legend. The possibility of two additional restored cars being added to the lineup is currently on the table as well for what could be a total of six cars on display.

Lined up to appear and sign autographs in honor of Boop for the night are several of his drivers including his most prolific, Lynn Paxton, along with Randy Wolfe, Ed Zirkle and Keith Kauffman.

Also showing up in honor of Boop will be his two prized mechanics from the car?s tenure from 1976- 1982, Mr. Davey Brown Sr. and Mr. Ralph Heintzelman Sr.

The Boop?s car raced to nearly 30 feature event wins at Port Royal and a total of 111 overall during its seven year hitch on area speedways.

Lance Dewease and Maynard Boop themselves will join all the special guests to sign autographs behind the grandstand from 5 until 6 pm on race night with gates for the big affair opening at 4 pm and racing at 7.

The 35-lap Living Legends A Main for 410 sprints will pay out over $30,000 in purse money alone for the third year in a row with a pair of 16-lap semi-features offering full payouts worth nearly $10,000 each.

In total, the night?s purse money alone eclipses $50,000 and with thousands of additional money pumped into the show via contingency prizes and cash, the total take on the night for sprint car drivers is already approaching $60,000.

Time trials will set the starting lineups for the 16-lap twin semi-features that will each pay a minimum of $2,000 to win as well as the A Main that will pay a minimum of $10,000 to the winner.

Title and contingency sponsors of the 2014 Living Legends Dream Race are: Slivinski Law Offices, Selinsgrove; Lelands.com; Packer?s Concessions; Hoosier Tires; York County Racing Club; Hoseheads.com; DMI; CRANKWERKZ; Rider Racing Engines; Don Ott Racing Engines; Penske Shocks; Wings Unlimited; Goshorn Racing Supplies; Zemco Speed Equipment; Leach Automotive Service; VRP Shocks; Smith Tire; RE Davidson & Son; Boulevard Car Wash; Moose Blocks; Rebecca Kerstetter Agency and Bryan Imes Auctioneer.

STP World Of Outlaws Summer Nationals Hit Williams Grove This Week

July 18 & 19 stand pits outlaws vs. posse, two-day sweep worth nearly 30K

7/13/14

Mechanicsburg – Williams Grove Speedway will present the two-day World of Outlaws Summer Nationals for sprint cars this Friday and Saturday, July 18 and 19.

Racing on both nights will begin at 7:30 pm.

Lineups both nights will be set using time trials with Friday’s feature going 25-laps in distance while paying $8,000 to win.

If one driver can sweep the weekend he will pocket nearly $30,000.

The mid-summer outlaws invasion will continue the rivalry between the locals known as the Pennsylvania Posse and the World of Outlaws travelers.

Back in May when the outlaws made their first stop of the season at Williams Grove, traveler Daryn Pittman swept both days of action aboard a mount owned by Kasey Kahne.

Donny Schatz is the defending Williams Grove Summer Nationals champion.

Pittman won the Summer Nationals finale back in 2006 and again took a win in 2008.

The annual July Summer Nationals began at Williams Grove in 2002 as a three-day event before becoming a two-day affair in 2008.

Likewise, outlaws pilots Danny Lasoski, Joey Saldana, Paul McMahan, Craig Dollansky, Terry McCarl and Jason Meyers have also taken event wins along with Schatz and Darrah as a card carrier.

Schatz, Pittman, McMahan and Saldana all currently rank within the top five in the World of Outlaws point standings.

Aside from Friday programs at the oval, the Williams Grove Speedway Saturday Series, offering racing action with the Super Sportsman, 358 late models and street stocks at 6:30 pm is in full swing.

Saturday Series adult admission is JUST $5. And please remember, kids ages 12 and under are always admitted free at Williams Grove Speedway!

Layton Gets First Of Year In Port Royal Sprints,

Rine Invades For Late Model Chship, Tim Krape Wins First In Econo Lates

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

7/7/14

Port Royal ? Chad Layton finally put a bright spot into his season of struggles aboard the Middleswarth No. 7 sprint car when he found his way to victory lane at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night to claim his first win of the year anywhere.

In the 25-lap late model championship event Jeff Rine invaded and picked up the $2,000 win after trailing Port Royal point leader Mike Lupfer for the first half of the race.

And in the 355 econo late model main Tim Krape picked up his first-ever win in the new division at the track.

Polesitter Mike Wagner held off Layton?s attempt at taking control on the start of the 25-lap 410 sprint car main and pulled away early with Layton falling in line second.

Harrisonville?s Wagner, in a fight for his third career track title, entered the backmarkers on the sixth tour with Layton in tow and Curt Stroup in third.

Sixth starter Greg Hodnett pushed his way into third just shy of the halfway point and that?s about the same time that Layton began closing on the leader.

Wagner struggled with lapped traffic at times as a hectic pace was set around the track and Layton put on a dive deep in the third corner that netted the lead as he slid up and caught to cushion to get control.

The race went nearly non-stop but a caution flag unfurled with just two laps to go for a four-car tangle in the third and fourth turns that saw point leader Blane Heimbach sitting against the outside rail albeit minus a front wheel. Also involved was Scott Wilson, Ryan Taylor and Dylan Cisney.

Wagner tried a slider for the lead on the restart but a clean race between he and Layton allowed Layton to claw his way back in front as the pair raced toward the white flag.

Layton ended up taking the checkers by 1.110 seconds ahead of Wagner with Hodnett crossing third followed by Doug Esh and Stroup.

Sixth through 10th went to Mike Erdley, Rick Lafferty, Davey Sammons, Cisney and Taylor.

Heats for the 20-car field went to Hodnett and Stroup. Hodnett set a new 10-lap track record with his run of 2:39.221.

Rine started on the pole of the late model championship and tried to edge out Mike Lupfer for the lead at the start but Lupfer came out on top of a squeeze play by Rine as the pair raced into the first corner to take narrow control of the event.

Running around the cushion, although a change of lane for Lupfer, proved to be working for the Shermansdale speedster as he kept Rine at bay before the caution flag appeared with five laps recorded.

Matt Parks raced third behind the pair for the restart and when action resumed Lupfer continued to keep Rine at bay but during the second half of the event Lupfer began to search around the track looking for a better-suited groove for this yellow racer and a try at the bottom groove was all it took for Rine to blast the top in the second corner and take control with seven laps to go.

A final yellow set up a two lap dash to the finish but Rine went homefree to the victory by 1.466 seconds ahead of Lupfer, eighth starter Brett Schadel, Parks and 10th starter Coleby Frye.

Sixth through 10th went to Tim Wilson, Patrick Bryner, Rance Garlock, Nick Dickson and Scott Flickinger.

Heats for the 32-car field went to Wilson, Parks, Flickinger and Rine with Mitch Hack claiming the consolation race.

Fast time was set by Rine with a lap of 18.412 seconds.

Krape wired the field for the 15-lap econo late victory and took over the point lead in the division with the scratch of three-time winner Andrew Yoder from the event.

The Bellefonte driver withstook a trio of restarts to keep the win.

Todd Snook advanced from mid pack to finish second with Eric Irvin in third followed by Troy Miller and Jared Fulkroad.

Sixth through 10th went to Lucas Bryner, Brett Hockenberry, Devin Hart, Shaun Miller and Scott Daniels.

Heats for the 23-car field went to Lucas Bryner, Snook and Krape.

UPCOMING SHOW:

Sat., July 19, 2014 – NO RACING

DEWEASE PREPARES FOR WORLD OF OUTLAWS WITH 37TH LINCOLN WIN;

Tyler Ross drives Eldreth #23J to second Lincoln win in “358” sprints; Zimmerman wins All-American Outlaw feature

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 7/12/2014 – Former champ Lance Dewease sounded like the 299-time sprint car winner that he is after scoring his 37th career win at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

“When we start where we did here tonight, we’d better win that thing!” said Dewease after exiting the C.C. Dietz/Conduit Connections/Hess Ornamental Iron Works #14 in victory lane, “You know Brian (Montieth) is coming on a track like this. I knew I had to get to the top and not come off of it. I also saw the 55 come up there. Robbie (Kendall) has been really fast here lately. He has my old mechanic working on that thing, and they have that car running around here really nice right now.

Handicapping placed Dewease fifth for the start. Matt Boland led the first 14 laps from his outside front row starting spot, before giving way to Dewease on lap 15. Dewease caught polesitter Nathan Berwager for fourth following a third-lap caution restart, got by Billy Dietrich for third on lap 12, and then moved past fourth-starting Tim Glatfelter for the runner-up spot on lap 14.

One lap later, Dewease made his race-winning move exiting turn four.

Meanwhile, Montieth, who started tenth, made his usual high-side charge to the front and caught Robbie Kendall for second on lap 19. Montieth tried the slider in turn four of the final lap, but wasn’t able to hold it and settled for second, 1.16 seconds behind Dewease.

“It’s not the year we’ve wanted, but we’re getting better on the short tracks, and we’re here in victory lane. That’s all that matters,” said Dewease, “We’ve had our ups and downs this year. When we think we’re getting better, we take a couple steps back. Then we come back forward a little bit. But that’s all part of growing with a new team. Different parts…different pieces…different year. We’re slowly getting on it. Our Speedweek was really good at the short tracks and really bad at the big tracks, which is kinda’ opposite for me.”

Third through fifth were seventh-starting Kendall, Dietrich, and Boland. Sixth through tenth were 13th-starting Cory Haas, points leader Alan Krimes, Glatfelter, J.J. Grasso, and Gerard McIntyre, Jr.

Heats for the 24 410 sprinters were won by Boland, Bill Stine, and Kendall.

Tyler Ross won in only his second appearance of the year in the 20-lap “358” sprint car feature. Ross, now driving the Tim Eldreth #23J, started sixth and took just six laps to catch polesitter and race-long leader Isaac Sneeringer for the lead.

He led the rest of the way despite a late-race challenge of seventh-starting Chandler Leiby, taking the checkered flag just six-tenths of-a-second in front of Leiby at the end for his second career Lincoln win.

Third through fifth were 11th-starting Niki Young, Jeff Halligan, and Matt Campbell. Sixth through tenth were “358” sprint championship winner Doug Hammaker, Sneeringer, Matt Findley, Jeff Rohrbaugh, and points leader Chase Dietz.

Heats for the 28 358 sprinters were won by Ross, Cody Fletcher, and Hammaker, with Chris Frank winning the consolation.

Pasadena, MD’s Kurt Zimmerman took advantage of a crash that involved the top three drivers to come from the back after an early-race spin and win the 20-lap All-American Outlaw feature.

Zimmerman started eighth after winning at Lincoln the last time out, and was running sixth behind Fred and Justin Cullum when leaders Hunter Nester, Randy Doty, and Dylan Keim all got together while racing for the lead on the front stretch of the 13th lap.

Nester and Doty both went to the pits, Keim joined the rear of the field and roared back for a fourth-place finish.

Zimmerman got by Justin Cullum on the restart, and then took the lead from Fred Cullum on lap 16, just before a caution came out for a spinning Jim Minter in turns three and four.

Zimmerman was never challenged the rest of the way for his second consecutive Lincoln win, crossing one second ahead of Fred Cullum, with Justin Cullum third, Keim fourth, and Carney Fryfogle completing the top five.

Heats for the 17 All American Outlaws were won by Nester and Zimmerman.

The WORLD OF OUTLAWS visit Lincoln Speedway this Thursday night, July 17th , for their second and final visit to the Pigeon Hills oval. Time Trials will get underway at 7:30 PM, with pits gates opening at 3 PM and general admission opening at 4 PM. There is no rain date for this show.

DWIGHT LEPPO SCORES FIRST CAREER WIN IN TRAIL-WAY 358 SPRINTS;

Hanover, PA (07/11/14) –Everyone could see it coming. And it finally did for New Oxford’s Dwight Leppo, who held off the repeated challenges of all-time Trail-Way winner Brad McClelland to claim his first career “358” sprint car victory in the 25-lap feature Friday night.

“It feels good to finally be here!” exclaimed Leppo upon exiting his family-owned Auchey Body Shop/Leppo’s Garage #4 in victory lane, “I knew Brad would be right there. I’m glad he didn’t get me this time.”

Leppo started beside polesitter Denny Gross and led every lap.

Gross brought out the red flag when he flipped in turn two of lap four.

McClelland had some problems of his own, bouncing several times and losing third place to Seth Kearchner in turn four of the second lap. Once the race restarted after the Gross flip, McClelland reclaimed third from Kearchner on lap six, and then passed Isaac Sneeringer on turn two of an 11th-lap restart.

McClelland closed quickly on Leppo and was challenging for the lead by lap 15. Over the next five laps, the two leaders pulled away from the rest of the field. They actually made contact on the backstretch of lap 20, sending McClelland into the infield, but McClelland saved it and hung onto to the runner-up spot. Though he closed on the leader again, he was not able to make the pass.

Sneeringer hung on for third, with hard charger Robbie Kendall from 12th starting spot to cross fourth and Cody Fletcher fifth.

Heats for the 12 “358” sprinters were won by McClelland and Gross.

Travis Scott came from sixth starting spot to inherit the lead when Bo Gordon lost a chain on a 15th-lap restart and led the rest of the way in the 20-lap 600cc micro-sprint feature.

Jim Young started third and crossed second, with tenth-starting Brad Weber, ninth-starting David Holbrook, and 11th-starting Hannah Riser completing the top five.

Qualifiers for the 15 micros were won by Holbrook and Weber.

Logan Jones started on the pole and led every lap of the 15-lap ACMS 600cc stock micro-sprint feature event. It was a perfect night for the 14-year-old, who also won the lone heat for the six stock micros on hand.

Gunnar Layton, Drew Ritchey, Justin Whittail were the other cars that finished, crossing second through fourth.

Kyle Rohrbaugh, running a limited schedule this year, won his first race of the year in the 15-lap limited stock main event.

Rohrbaugh started sixth and took the lead from polesitter Mike Wolf on the second lap. He led the rest of the way, with 12th-starting Jason Chronister, Tom Senseney, Cody Klinedinst, and Matt Chronister completing the top five.

Heats for the 20 limited stocks were won by Wolf and Jason Chronister.

Jeremy Stremmel took to the top side to drive around both a lapped car and leader Dan Furman on the final turn to claim a thrilling win in the 20-lap street stock feature.

Furman came from 12th starting spot to claim the lead from Stremmel on lap 18. But Stremmel never gave up, and used the heavy lapped traffic to his advantage in making the last-turn pass.

Furman crossed less than a carlength behind in second, with Larry Landis, Michel Goodwin (who came from the back after replacing a flat tire), and Chad Stine rounding out the top five.

Heats for the 13 street stocks were won by Stremmel and Goodwin.

Next Friday (7/18), Trail-Way Speedway will host the 358 Sprint Cars, 358 Late Models, Limited Stocks, and Street Stocks. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. and racing begins at 7:30 p.m.

Stevie Smith Is Ready For Outlaws With Williams Grove 410 Sprint Victory

Kevin Nouse gets third in 358s

7/11/14

Mechanicsburg  Stevie Smith drove to his third 410 sprint car win of the season on Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway as he tuned up for next week?s World of Outlaws Summer Nationals with a victory worth $4,000.

In 358 sprint action it was Kevin Nouse of Lewisberry taking his third win of the season at the track as well.

Second starter Ryan Smith tried to lead the first lap but polesitter Cory Haas nipped him at the line to be scored in control.

Stevie Smith started fourth in the field and was third behind the pair almost immediately.

The eventual winner got around Ryan Smith for second on the third circuit and chased Haas for the lead for six tours before driving by for command as the pair raced out of the second corner.

Eyes then turned to ninth starter Brian Montieth who was up to fifth as Stevie Smith took the lead.

Montieth had worked his way up to third behind the leader and Haas by the time the races only caution flag unfurled with 10 laps to go in the 25 lap main for the stopped racers of Doug Esh and sixth runner Don Kreitz Jr.

Montieth overtook Haas on the restart and began his attempts at racing with the leader.

The Phoenixville flyer had closed right up on the leader?s bumper as the pair raced into the third corner headed for the two-to-go sign but when Smith hesitated as he worked traffic entering the turn, Montieth nearly crashed into him and was forced to lay on the brakes and turn the car partially sideways to avoid collision.

This in turn allowed Stevie Smith to drive away as Montieth tried to recover and Smith took the checkers by .441 seconds.

?This one?s just as fun as the first one, that?ll never wear off,? Smith said of taking the victory.

Car owner Fred Rahmer expressed his pleasure with the team?s third win of the year at the oval.

?I knew that Stevie was the best driver there is and he?s provin? it,? Rahmer said.

Lucas Wolfe drove from sixth starting spot to finish third followed by Ryan Smith and Gerard McIntyre Jr.

Sixth through 10th went to Steve Buckwalter, Greg Hodnett, Pat Cannon, Alan Krimes and Tim Glatfelter.

Heats for the 23 cars went to Wolfe, Ryan Smith and Haas. Haas won the dash to earn the pole for the feature.

Wolfe set his fifth quick time of the season in time trials with a lap of 17.077 seconds.

Brie Hershey lead the first four circuits of the 20-lap 358 sprint main before 10th starter Adrian Shaffer took over.

Shaffer appeared headed for his third win of the season while running on the cushion but with eight laps to go he jumped the cushion in the second corner, allowing Knouse to erase nearly all of the two-turn lead he had amassed at the front.

And then when Shaffer seemed to miss his entry with five to go in the third corner that was all it took for Knouse to drive across the middle of the track to take control.

A caution flag with a lap to go appeared for a tangle in the fourth corner that took out top five runners Ryan Wilson and Brock Zearfoss but Shaffer was helpless on the restart, instead settling for second.

Doug Hammaker was third followed by Rich Eichelberger and Hershey.

Heats for the 15-car field went to Shaffer and Brock Zearfoss.

July 11, 2014 Feature Finish:

410 sprints, 25 laps: 1. Stevie Smith, 2. Brian Montieth, 3. Lucas Wolfe, 4. Ryan Smith, 5. Gerard McIntyre Jr., 6. Steve Buckwalter, 7. Greg Hodnett, 8. Pat Cannon, 9. Alan Krimes, 10.

Lucas Wolfe Wins Port Royal First In PA Speedweek Action,

Matt Parks and Bill Powell take stock car mains

7/5/14

Port Royal – Lucas Wolfe of Mechanicsburg drove from sixth starting spot to win Saturday night’s PA Speedweek sprint car feature event at Port Royal Speedway worth $5,000, recording his elusive first every victory at the track as well as in the speedweek series itself anywhere by taking the checkers.

It was also Wolfe’s first win for his car owner’s John and Pee Wee Zemaitis since joining the team this season.

Wolfe started out the night by setting a new one-lap track record in qualifying over the 34-car field in attendance, setting the mark at 15.168 seconds, an average speed of 127.381 mph.

Matt Parks of Three Springs won for the first time this season in super late model action while Bill Powell took his third xtreme stock main of the year to close out the night.

With Wolfe aboard the potent Zemco No. 1 sprinter, his starting spot of sixth would prove to be the deepest of any of the 2014 speedweek winners to date.

Dave Blaney started the 30-lap main on the pole and took the lead over second starter Doug Esh when the race began.

The first 20 laps would go non-stop with Blaney entering the rear of the field on the eighth tour with Esh giving chase followed by Logan Wagner and Wolfe.

Wolfe advanced to third on the 13th lap and then riding the rail down low he drove by Esh with 12 laps to go.

Wolfe had run down leader Blaney by the time two-thirds of the race was completed as the Ohio driver worked his way flawlessly to that point through heavy and hectic lapped traffic.

And then with 10 laps to go the caution flag unfurled when Blaney gave up the lead after shredding a right rear tire as he raced down the frontstretch.

Only one more lap could be completed before Logan Wagner’s fine run came to and end when he coasted down the backchute.

Smith had taken second from Esh just before the yellow, thus forcing him back to third when action again began with nine laps left.

Smith got around Esh for second with four laps remaining and although he was able to close in on the leader by the finish Wolfe took the checkers by .588 seconds.

The victory put Wolfe in a tie with Greg Hodnett for the speedweek series title as both drivers ended the night with 895 points and just one show to go on the series schedule.

Esh settled for third followed by 10th starter Hodnett and Curt Michael.

Sixth through 10th went to 13th starter Mike Erdley, Brent Marks, Blane Heimbach, 23rd starter Danny Dietrich and Kyle Reinhardt.

Heats went to Blaney, Kyle Moody, Esh and Nate Snyder with Reinhardt taking the consolation race.

Newport’s Tim Fedder led the first eight laps of the 20-lap late model feature before Parks took control on a lap eight restart.

Parks was in third for that restart, having just lost the spot to Mike Lupfer before the caution, but when action resumed Parks made up for his loss of the second spot by blasting by both the second and first place cars to take the lead with 11 laps to go.

Once in front Parks pulled away to his seventh career checkers at the track by .599 second ahead of Lupfer, who took the spot with six laps to go.

Mitch Hack rode home third followed by Tim Smith Jr. and Justin Kann.

Brett Schadel went to the rear on the first lap and rebounded to cross the line sixth at the finish followed by Fedder, Lindsay Barton, Scott Flickinger and Eric Zembower.

Heats went to Parks, Nick Dickson and Hack.

Powell led all 15 laps of the xtreme stock feature.

He held off Bob Bussey for the entire distance to pick up the win with Bussey staging a final lap charge to steal the victory.

Jason Zook, Mike Goodwin and Craig Dodson rounded out the top five finishers.

DOUG HAMMAKER SCORES FIRST CAREER WIN IN LINCOLN 358 SPRINT CAR CHAMPIONSHIP;

MIKE WAGNER TAKES PASS RACESAVER 305 SPRINT FEATURE; CHRIS SPIDLE WINS LEGENDS FEATURE

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 7/5/2014 – Doug Hammaker took advantage of a lucky break on the final lap to score his first career win in the 25-lap “358” sprint car championship at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

Points handicapping placed Hammaker fourth for the start, and he was third behind pole sitter Troy Wagaman, Jr. and front row starter Brie Hershey at the end of the first lap. He drove around Hershey for the runner-up spot on a second-lap restart and then caught Wagaman for the lead on lap three. Though he led the rest of the way, he had to hold ninth-starting Kevin Nouse from the fourth lap on.

Nouse actually took the lead from the Delco Designs/Farnsworth Used Auto Parts #66 in heavy lapped traffic heading up the backstretch of the final lap, only to have the caution come out for Chris Arnold, who came to a stop in turn two. That gave the lead and a clear track back to Hammaker for the one-lap dash to the finish, and Hammaker hung on for a .65-second win over the Central PA Point Series leader and claim the $1,500 top prize.

Ryan Wilson came from 15th starting spot to pass Lincoln points leader Chase Dietz on the final lap and cross third, with Dietz settling for fourth and Nike Young completing the top five. Sixth through tenth were Chandler Leiby, Wagaman, Jay Galloway, Hershey, and Tyler Ross, who came from the back after a 15th-lap spin on the backstretch.

Ross’s spin came on a restart which followed a collision between Dietz and Robbie Kendall, who got together while racing for third. That ended Kendall’s night. Dietz kept going and was awarded third for the restart.

Heats for the 30 358 sprinters were won by Ross, Leiby, and Hammaker, with Brian Allman winning the consolation.

Harrisonville’s Mike Wagner II won his second career Lincoln race in the 20-lap Pennsylvania Sprint Series RaceSaver 305 sprint car feature. An inversion of three put Wagner on the pole, and, despite late-race pressure from Kody Lehman and another one-lap shootout, Wagner led every lap, crossing 2.81 seconds ahead of Lehman.

Third through fifth were John Braim, Mark Watkins, and Colby Dice.

Heats for the 25 PASS RaceSaver 305 Sprints were won by Ian Detweiler, Erin Statler, and Wagner.

Marysville’s Chris Spidle started on the pole and led every lap of the 15-lap Central PA Legends feature.

Like Wagner in the PASS sprints, he started on the pole by virtue of an inversion draw of three. And like Wagner, Spidle received heavy pressure from Lucas Montgomery and tenth-starting Bob Stough and had to hold them off over a final-lap shootout.

It was Spidle’s first career Lincoln win and third career win overall.

Montgomery and Stough finished second and third, with Bill Diehl and Chad Earnst completing the top five.

Heats for the 30 Central PA Legends were won by Montgomery, Diehl, and Chris Spidle, with Rick Hartwig winning the consolation.

Next Saturday, July 12th at 7:30 PM, it will be KIDS NIGHT! The 410 sprinters will be joined by the 358 Sprints and All American Outlaws. Gates open at 5:30 p.m., with heat racing getting underway at 7:30 p.m.

Kendall started on the pole and drove away from the field in the 25-lap “358” sprint car feature, crossing under the checkered flag less than a half-second off the track record in a non-stop time of 6 minutes, 4.47 seconds for his third win of the year at the McSherrystown oval.

“These guys had this thing hooked up tonight,” said Kendall upon exiting the Mike Parris-owned Turning Stone Resort & Casino/Vermeer Mid-Atlantic/Wurtzer’s Garage #55 in victory lane, “We tore cars up the last two times out, and it’s just a pleasure to finish one.”

The Auto Racing Club of Hagerstown night feature saw Kendall and Ryan Wilson start on the front row. Kendall grabbed the lead at the outset and never looked back.

“We caught lapped cars at the right time tonight,” said Kendall.

And lapped cars there were, with only six of the 16 sprinters finishing on the lead lap.

Wilson ran second until slipping in turns one and two and losing the runner-up spot to third-starting Dwight Leppo, who finished a career-best second at the finish.

Four-time winner and Trail-Way points leader Brad McClelland started sixth and was challenging Leppo for second when he dove into the infield on lap 21.

That put Wilson back in third, and that’s where he finished, with Jeff Rohrbaugh crossing fourth in the Shane Smith #00 and last week’s winner Isaac Sneeringer rounding out the top five. The other car on the lead lap was Seth Kearchner.

Heats for the “358” sprint cars were won by McClelland and Sneeringer.

Dan Furman raced to his third win of the year in the 20-lap street stock feature.

Furman started seventh and took the lead from outside front row starter David Johnson on lap four.

Last week’s winner Michael Goodwin started last in the 11-car field and caught Larry Landis for second on the ninth lap. Pat McClane moved past Landis for third on the same lap, but then lost an axle and wheel on lap 16, handing the spot back over to Landis, who held the spot the rest of the way.

Fourth and fifth were ninth-starting Chad Stine and Joey Harrison.

Qualifiers for the street stocks were won by Landis and Jeremy Stremmel.

Scott Rickrode started on the pole and led every lap of the 15-lap Penn-Mar Vintage Race Car Club’s Scott Coghill Memorial.

Curt Neiman, Rick Pastor, Pete Cobb, and Mark Rickrode rounded out the top five.

It was a perfect night for Rickrode, who also won the lone qualifier for the eight vintage cars.

Brothers Jason and Matt Chronister finished first and second in the 15-lap limited stock feature.

It was Jason’s first win of the year. He started sixth and took the lead from outside front row starter Justin Oberlin on lap three. Brother Matt started 12th and took second from Cody Klinedinst on the next-to-last lap. Klinedinst, with heavy smoke pouring from the car, faded to fifth at the end.

Ricky Weaver, Jr. crossed third, with Tom Senseney, Jr. fourth.

Heats for the 18 limited stocks were won by Senseney and Aaron Levin.

Next Friday (7/11), Trail-Way Speedway will host the 358 Sprint Cars, Limited Stocks, Street Stocks, 600cc Micros and ACMS 600 Micros. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. and racing begins at 7:30 p.m.

Stevie Smith Trumps In Williams Grove Speedweek Mitch Smith Memorial

7/4/14

MECHANICSBURG, PA – Stevie Smith chased Brian Montieth through lapped traffic for the first 26 laps of the Mitch Smith Memorial Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway.

Smith then drove under Montieth in turn three and emerged the leader on lap 27 and would control the final three laps to take home the $10,000 paycheck in the sixth race of Pennsylvania Sprint Car Speedweek.

Montieth and Smith shared the front row for the start of the 30-lap main event and Montieth grabbed the lead off turn two.

“Fred and I talked about it and he said if Montieth gets the lead, just run your groove and get with him and we did and we were able to slide by him,” said Smith. “It was a really good night. These guys are good with the set-ups and they do a really good job with the car. I’m getting more and more confident and it feels really good.”

Brent Marks drove by Chad Layton and into third. Montieth was racing around heavy lapped traffic and Smith was able to close.

Montieth momentarily cleared traffic and so did Smith, who was now about 10 car lengths back. Montieth didn’t have clear track very long as he caught traffic again with 10 laps completed

Montieth cleared three lapped cars and had a clear track again on lap 13. Smith and Marks were still caught behind a few lapped cars.

Montieth had an open track and then Smith cleared traffic as well. Marks was up to third and Donnie Kreitz moved by Layton and into fourth. Lucas Wolfe also drove by Layton and into the top five.

Montieth continued to hammer the cushion and Smith was checking out the bottom just a few car lengths back in lapped traffic.

Montieth slid by rookie Austin Hogue in turn one and scrubbed some speed. Smith was right there and as they raced into turn three, he was able to slide in front of him and take the lead with 27 laps completed. Smith maintained the lead through the first and second turns and down the backstretch.

Montieth blasted under Smith entering turn three and they traded the lead. Smith led Montieth at the line. Behind the race for the lead was Grove point leader Donnie Kreitz closing in.

Very heavy traffic was in front of the leaders, but the first caution flag of the race flew with two laps remaining for Mike Wagner who blew a right rear tire and stopped on the frontstretch.

Smith got a good restart and no slider came from Montieth as he and Kreitz went to the bottom.

Smith led under the white flag and rolled right through the middle of the turns. He would score the win as Montieth just held off Kreitz for second. Brent Marks and Lucas Wolfe were in the top five.

“We were too good, too early,” said Montieth. “I knew we were going to be in trouble. The car was really good the first 10 laps. I was trying to get as many lapped cars between us as I could. We should have started with the car tighter.”

Greg Hodnett, Cory Haas, Dave Blaney, Chad Layton and Doug Esh completed the top 10.

Wolfe set fast time over the 39-car field with a lap of 16.811 seconds. It was Wolfe’s fourth fast time during Speedweek competition. Kreitz, Layton, Marks and Montieth were the top five qualifiers.

The 10-lap heat races were won by Blaney, Haas, S. Smith and Marks. T.J. Stutts won the B-main.

Port Royal July 3 Speedweek Falls To Rain, Speedweek Returns July 5

7/3/14

Port Royal – With nearly 30 sprint cars signed in for PA Speedweek action on Thursday night at Port Royal Speedway, a relentless rain forced cancellation of the program at approximately 8:15 pm.

A torrent of rains and high winds pelted the speedway around 3 pm with sporadic rainfall lasting until 6 pm however oval officials opened the gates and pressed on, preparing the track in an effort to get the show underway and completed.

And considerable progress had been made with thoughts turning to engine starts when a few quick downbursts of rain in the very humid air ruined any chances of reclaiming the already saturated surface.

Rainchecks will be good for the PA Speedweek event coming up at Port Royal in just two days, on Saturday, July 5 at 7:30 pm. Gates will open at 4 pm.

Those adult general admission fans who wish to redeem their Thursday rainchecks for Saturday’s races will simply have to pay the $2 up charge between the face value of the $20 raincheck from Thursday and Saturday’s price of $22.

The entire Port Royal raincheck policy can be found on portroyalspeedway.com.

Saturday’s speedweek show on July 5 also includes the Enviroman Products/Jake’s Carts super late models plus a feature for the Len Krautheim Auto Sales xtreme stocks to close out the night.

Saturday’s speedweek winner will garner $5,000 for a 30-lap victory and $100 is up for grabs to the fast timer, courtesy of Packer’s Concessions of Centre Hall.

Prior to the races on Saturday, a free performance by Last Men Standing will take place on the stage behind the grandstand.

Last Men Standing is a local band that showcases rock music spanning from the 1950’s to now.

Adult admission Saturday for the super sprint/super late model show is JUST $22 and students are priced at JUST $5.

 

 

HAGERSTOWN SPEEDWEEK TRIUMPH FOR HODNETT MAKES IT TWO IN A ROW

HAGERSTOWN, MD – Scoring the triumph in Tuesday’s 24th Annual PA Sprint Car Speedweek event at Grandview, Greg Hodnett headed South of The Border to Hagerstown Speedway on Wednesday for night five of the series and ended the night in victory lane for the second consecutive night.

Hodnett was sixth quick in time trials and sat on the pole for the inverted six car field. Trailing Donnie Kreitz Jr. for the first 20 laps, he pulled the trigger on a lap 20 restart and that was all it took as he went the rest of the way to beat Lucas Wolfe by 1.75 seconds for the $5,000 victory and increased his series point lead.

“We just got really lucky on starting position and was able to take advantage of it,” Hodnett said. ”We brought out a new car Friday and have been struggling with it and struggling with it. We brought this one here today and we’re trying to figure it out. It’s a little different, but hopefully we can gain on it by the end of the week.”

Lucas Wolfe was the fast timer with a lap around the half mile oval in 15.208, short of the 14.945 record set by Mark Kinser in 1999.

Heat wins went to Hodnett, Brent Marks and night three Path Valley winner Brady Bacon while Danny Dietrich was the consolation winner.

When the green flag waved, Kreitz was like a rocket off the outside row as he exited the second turn hammer down with Hodnett, Mike Wagner and Wolfe beginning to give chase. As the field stretched out, Kreitz was to the rear by lap eight with a caution two laps later when Aaron Ott came to a stop.

Kreitz maintained control on the restart and pulled away but Hodnett began to close in when Kreitz was to the rear cars again on the 18th lap and Hodnett was to his back bumper. While they were working through several cars on the tail end, the yellow again waved when Wagner suffered a flat and was sitting in the third turn.

When the green put the field in motion this time, Hodnett charged under and quickly sped from the second turn and was stretching his lead while Wolfe ducked under for the runner up spot on the 22nd lap.

Hodnett was in total control the final ten circuits as Wolfe was not close enough to mount a challenge with Kreitz and Stevie Smith in the next positions while fifth place went to night one winner at Williams Grove, Danny Dietrich who came all the way from 19th starting position.

“Donnie had the wing back and was having problems keeping the front end off that curb,” Hodnett said. “From about laps 15 to 20 when we got into traffic, he had his wing back and was trying to run underneath it but his car wasn’t sticking quite as good and I think he was a little hesitant of getting in. I think his car couldn’t steer to be honest. He looked like he had to get the front end back down and I figured if I stayed close enough on the front straightaway, I was going to try it and if it worked, it worked and if it didn’t, I was going to run second, third, fourth, it didn’t really matter. So it just happened to stick and I blew across there and had enough momentum and came out the other side.”

Brent Marks finished sixth with Alan Krimes, Bacon, defending race winner Dave Blaney and Blane Heimbach completing the top ten.

NAPA AUTO PARTS THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES

NAPA AUTO PARTS THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES EVENT 112 WAS A THRILLER FOR FANS. . . . . . . . GREG HODNETT WINS MACH 1 CHASSIS SPRINT FEATURE AS DUANE HOWARD TOPS ALL IN PPB RACE OF CHAMPIONS MODIFIED FEATURE TUESDAY AT GRANDVIEW

It could very well go down as one of best nights of racing in 2014!

The large crowd on hand was thriller with two spectacular feature events Tuesday night at the Grandview Speedway as the Thunder on the Hill Racing Series celebrated their twenty-fifth season. Greg Hodnett won the 35 lap Pennsylvania Sprint Speed Week 410 sprint feature event presented by MACH1 Chassis as Duane Howard rebounded after a wild crash Saturday night to win the Pioneer Pole Buildings Race of Champions 60 lap feature event. Both feature events were spectacular with the feature winners in both events being decided on the final laps. For the one-hundred and twelfth event in Thunder on the Hill Racing, a total purse in excess of $50,000 was paid to the two divisions.

The NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing welcomed a big turnout of racing fans as the event opened with the CnB Mushrooms 410 sprint time trials. Lucas Wolfe driving the ZEMCO sprint car set fast time, turning the one lap with a time of 12.032. The three 410 sprint qualifying events were won by Brent Marks, Austin Wheatley and Kyle Reinhardt.

The Modified Race of Champions qualifying event winners were Rick Laubach, Stew Friesen, Craig VonDohren and Duane Howard with the consolation victory going to John McClelland.

Both fields were set and the fast moving show was now ready to present the MACH 1 Chassis 35 lap sprint feature.

Greg Hodnett, driving the Mike Heffner sprint car set the early pace followed by Darren Mollenoyux and Lucas Wolfe. By lap seven Wolfe was second and chasing down Hodnett. Alan Krimes and Danny Dietrich were on their way to the front of the pack. On lap fourteen, Wolfe caught Hodnett and staged the first challenge for the lead with Alan Krimes racing in third.

As the halfway point of the race, Hodnett, Wolfe, Danny Dietrich, Krimes and Mollenoyux were the top five. On lap nineteen, Dietrich, using the outside lane, moved into second and he began to chase down the leader. On lap twenty-four, there were three cars racing under a blanket for the lead with Hodnett, Dietrich and Dewease in a battle. Lap after lap Dietrich rode the outside boiler-plate as he challenged Hodnett for the lead.

On lap twenty-four, Lucas Wolfe now joined the battle for the lead with Brent Marks just outside the top five. Hodnett, Dietrich and Wolfe were no in a three way battle for the lead. Dietrich made a challenge for the lead lap after lap then on lap twenty-eight, Lucas Wolfe moved into second. Wolfe now challenged for the lead and with just two laps to go, Hodnett and Wolfe crossed the line side-by-side. Hodnett held off the challenges of Wolfe to score his seventh career Thunder on the Hill victory and collected $5,000.

In the sixty lap PPB Race of Champions feature, pole sitter Stew Friesen led the first lap with Rick Laubach taking the top spot on lap two. The one and only caution flag of the race came out on lap two for Craig VonDohren who had a flat tire. On the restart, Friesen remained the leader with Laubach in the hunt. MeMe DeSantis passed Laubach for second on lap five, but one lap later, Laubach returned to second. Duane Howard, who flipped violently on Saturday night was in the hunt and running third.

On lap fifteen, a three car battle for the lead was unfolding between Friesen, Laubach and Howard. As the leaders approached lapped traffic, Friesen appeared to have an edge, pulling away from the rest of the field. As the field approached the halfway point of the race, Jeff Strunk was now reeling in the leaders, making it a four car race for win. As the field passed on lap thirty-eight, Friesen, Laubach, Howard and Strunk were now surrounded by slower traffic as the four drivers began to duke it out for the lead. Howard moved into second and began his job to reel in the leader.

It was a new race on lap forty as Rick Laubach became the new leader and by lap forty-two, Howard was second with Friesen third and hard charging Jeff Strunk was now running in fourth. With just ten laps to go, the race became more interesting as Laubach, Howard and Strunk were in the chase for the lead. Howard regained the lead on lap fifty-two and by lap fifty-six, Laubach was again back on top.

With three laps to go, Laubach, Howard and Strunk were not only dodging each other but a list of slower cars just ahead of the leaders. On lap fifty-eight, Howard took the lead with Laubach and Strunk side-by-side for second. With the checker flag waiving, Duane Howard took the victory to collect the $5,000 first place prize. Rick Laubach finished second followed by Jeff Strunk, Stewart Friesen and Keith Hoffman.

Williams Grove Is July 4th PA Speedweek Stop, 10G To Win Mitch Smith Memorial Slated

6/29/14

Mechanicsburg ? Williams Grove Speedway will host the biggest event of the 24th Pennsylvania Speedweek series this Independence Day, Friday, July 4 at 7:30 pm when it hosts the 26th annual Mitch Smith Memorial for sprint cars, paying a hefty $10,000 to win out of a purse worth over $30,000.

The Mitch Smith Memorial will be the second 2014 speedweek date slated for the track after Williams Grove began this year?s speedweek on June 27 when Danny Dietrich took an exciting victory worth $5,000.

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.

A special holiday fireworks display is also slated during the program.

The Saturday Series 358 late models will also be on the July 4 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.

Already a winner at the track this season on two occasions including just last week, Danny Dietirch is the defending winner of the Mitch Smith Memorial.

Aside from Friday programs at the oval, the Williams Grove Speedway Saturday Series, offering racing action with the Super Sportsman, 358 late models and street stocks at 6:30 pm is in full swing.

Saturday Series adult admission is JUST $5. And please remember, kids ages 12 and under are always admitted free at Williams Grove Speedway!

MOODY HOLDS OFF USAC INVADER BACON FOR FIRST CAREER WIN IN LINCOLN PA SPEEDWEEK SHOW;

Bob Stough scores first career Lincoln win in Central PA Legends

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 6/28/2014 – Kyle Moody recovered from a rough start to come back in claim his first career 410 sprint car feature win and the $7,000 top prize in night #2 of PA Speedweek at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

After dropping to fifth on the first lap, Moody passed both USAC invader Brady Bacon and Tim Glatfelter on laps eight and nine to climb to his original starting spot.

While running third, Moody saw second-place Glenndon Forsythe bring out the red flag with a 360 airborne spin in turns three and four of lap 18. During the race stoppage, race-long leader Adam Wilt went to the pits with a flat right rear, placing Moody in the lead for the restart.

“God works in mysterious ways, doesn’t he?” said a jubilant Moody after his wing dance in victory lane, “What are the chances of losing both cars running in front of me? And not getting caught up in it was just amazing!.”

“On the start I totally fumbled up, and all those cars got by me…and I thought ‘Shoot, I don’t think I’m going to be able to get back up there,” said Moody, “There were a lot of good cars up there and I knew I had to bide my time. I knew I had a good car all night tonight. We were fighting some engine problems that were unknown, and I decided to put my head down and not worry about it…and keep running like we did.”

On his tail for the restart were Glatfelter and Bacon. Bacon caught Glatfelter for the runner-up spot with nine laps to go, and closed on the leader. But it was Moody’s night, as the ISSC/Kanson Electronics/Keener Coatings #99M crossed .72 seconds in front at the finish.

“It means everything,” said Moody of his Lincoln win, “This has been my dream since I was eight years old when I started coming here and this is it right here. A big thanks to Cory Laucks, who has made this thing a rocket ship this year. And thanks to my mom and dad and girlfriend for their support, and to a great crew. This is amazing!”

“It was great racing with Brady. He has a lot more seat time than I do. I saw him creep up to third and then second. I was watching for him. I was trying to stay smooth. That curb was crazy tonight. You could overdrive it in a heartbeat. I was watching the guys in front of me. It was slick. I just buckled down and held on.”

Seventh-starting Ryan Smith caught Glatfelter for third with two laps to go, and 23rd-starting Brian Montieth passed Glatfelter on the last lap for fourth. Sixth through tenth behind Glatfelter were Austin Hogue, 20th-starting Brent Marks, Lance Dewease, 22nd-starting Alan Krimes, and Gerard McIntyre, Jr.

A slowing track during time trials forced several top drivers to the rear of the feature field after coming out late for time trials.

Heats for the 410 sprinters were won by Wilt, Glatfelter, Moody, and Forsythe, with Steve Owings winning the B-Main. McIntyre set fast time over the 34-car field with a one lap time of 13.508 seconds (99.941 MPH).

Brian Montieth’s amazing run from 23rd to fourth put him in the PA Speedweek points lead after two shows with 259 points. The remainder of the top ten after night #2 are: 2. Alan Krimes (226), 3. Ryan Smith (216), 4. Brent Marks (205), 5. Greg Hodnett (199), 6. Danny Dietrich (196), 7. Lance Dewease (191), 8. Cory Haas (188), 9. Brady Bacon (176), 10. Kyle Moody (167).

After numerous second-place finishes, defending series champ Bob Stough of East Berlin scored his first career Lincoln win in the 15-lap Central PA Legends feature. Stough started third, led the first lap, yielded to fourth-starting Harlon Leppo on laps two and three, reclaimed the lead for good on lap four.

A race-long multi-car battle for the top spot ended with Jason Rochelle crossing second, with Lucas Montgomery, Bill Diehl, and Leppo rounding out the top five.

Heats for the 32 Central PA Legends were won by Diehl, Montgomery, and Leppo, with Travis McClelland winning the consolation.

Next Saturday, July 5th, with the 410 sprinters traveling for PA Speedweek activities, the 358 Sprints will headline the evening’s activities with their annual 358 SPRINT CAR CHAMPIONSHIP, a 25-lapper paying $1,500 to win. Also on the card are the Central PA Legends and PASS RaceSaver (305) Sprints. Gates open at 5:30 p.m., with racing action getting underway at 7:30 p.m.

SNEERINGER WINS FIRST OF THE YEAR IN TRAIL-WAY 358S;

CRONRATH BEST OF 600CC MICROS;

GOODWIN TAKES STREET STOCKS; WES BROWN CLASSIC CAR WINNER;

MATT CHRONISTER SCORES FOURTH WIN IN LIMITED STOCKS

Hanover, PA (06/27/14) – The honeymoon continues for Hanover’s Isaac Sneeringer.

Just a few weeks back from his marriage to Monica, Sneeringer claimed his first win of the year in the “358” sprint car feature at Trail-Way Speedway Friday night.

“It’s been a while, and great to get to victory lane,” said Sneeringer upon exiting his DCI Racing/Todd A. Gosnell Paving #19Z, “That 6R is a helluva racer. I was happy to stay in front.”

Sneeringer started third and assumed the front spot when race leader Dwight Leppo spun in turn two of lap 14. He led the rest of the way, with four-time winner and points leader Brad McClelland crossing second.

Third through fifth were Seth Kearchner, 12th starting and hard charger Jeff Rohrbaugh (driving the Shane Smith #00), and Randy Whisler.

It was the fifth appearance of the year for Sneeringer, who thanked father Dave (car owner) and his crew in victory lane.

Tyler Buchenauer was uninjured in a turn two flip on lap three.

Heats for the 13 “358” sprinters were won by Rohrbaugh and McClelland.

Bret Cronrath started on the pole and led every lap of the 20-lap 600cc micro-sprint feature.

The race was red-flagged for a five-car crash that resulted in a turn four flip by Travis Scott on the first lap. Scott was uninjured, but was unable to continue.

Dwayne Gutshall started third and chased Cronrath the entire way to finish second.

Third through fifth were seventh-starting Jim Young, 16th-starting Shawn Seifert, and 14th-starting David Holbrook, who took the points lead after the early departure of Brad Weber (who was involved in the first-lap crash and dropped from the field on lap six when he lost a wheel).

Qualifiers for the 17 micros were won by Scott and Gutshall.

Michael Goodwin claimed the win in a wild 20-lap street stock event that saw the Miner’s Machine cars of Dan Furman and Craig Wagaman battling with him for the top spot.

Wagaman came from the back twice in the event, moving up to third by lap five before suffering a flat tire on lap eight, going to the pits during his own caution, returning to advance to third by lap 14, and then sustaining another flat tire and hitting the turn two wall, ending his night on lap 16.

Furman started sixth and took the lead from polesitter David Johnson on lap two. He led four laps before Goodwin got by on lap six.

Furman settled for second, with Larry Landis, Johnson and Brian Blank, Jr. rounding out the top five. They were the only cars that finished the race.

Heats for the 12 street stocks were won by Furman and Todd Miller.

Brothers Wes and Roland Brown finished first and second in the 20-lap Classic Car feature.

Wes, from Manchester, MD, started sixth and took the lead from outside front row starter Matt Wallace on lap 10. Roland caught Wallace for the runner-up spot two laps later, with Wallace hanging on for third. Ron Grove and Steve Cantwell completed the top five.

Qualifiers for the 12 Classic Cars were claimed by Grove and Wallace.

Matt Chronister raced to his fourth win of the year in the 15-lap limited stock main event.

Chronister started ninth and became the fifth different leader of the race.

Robert Wellman led the first two laps from his outside front row starting spot before Kenny Startzman grabbed the lead. Wellman reclaimed the lead for laps five and six, then yielded to Shannon Weaver.

Weaver led through two cautions and two laps until Chronister took the lead for good on lap nine.

Eleventh-starting Cory Weishaar crossed second, followed by seventh-starting Ricky Weaver, Jr., tenth-starting Tom Senseney, and 12th-starting Chad Weaver, who recently returned from another tour in Afghanistan.

Heats for the 19 limited stocks were won by Matt Chronister and Mike Wolf.

Next Friday (7/4), it will be Camera & Autograph night as Trail-Way hosts the 358 Sprint Cars, Limited Stocks, Street Stocks, and Penn Mar Vintage Race Car Club for the Les Coghill Memorial. It will also be ARCH Night, with card-carrying members of the Auto Racing Club of Hagerstown receiving $2 off admission at the gate. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. and racing begins at 7:30 p.m.

Mechanicsburg – Danny Dietrich pulled out the opening night Pennsylvania Speedweek victory at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, holding off the furious charges of Brian Montieth to pick up the $5,000 sprint car payday.

Rick Lafferty led the opening laps from the second starting spot over polesitter Dietrich, Alan Krimes, Doug Esh and Montieth.

The races first caution flag unfurled on the fourth lap for a spin by Adrian Shaffer.

The restart turned to a red flag for Australian Darren Mollenoyux who barrel rolled onto the backstretch from the second corner, however escaping injury.

Montieth surely hated to see the start get called back by the red given the fact that he zoomed from fourth to second on the restart before the red unfurled.

Lafferty went back to work leading when action resumed following the red and held sway over the field until lap 14 when Dietrich went outside his black No. 0 in the third and fourth corner to take the lead with 11 laps to go in the 25 lapper.

Two laps later Montieth followed the Gettysburg driver into second and began driving down his advantage.

As the front duo began battling for control so to was there a battle for third between Lafferty and Esh.

But just as Esh was poised to take the spot on the 18th tour, he slipped over the cushion in the second turn, nearly looping his car while falling from a challenging fourth back to eighth, where he would finish.

In the meantime, Montieth was all over leader Dietrich and just after the pair crossed the stripe to record lap 24, Montieth put on a monstrous dive and slide job in the first corner that netted him the lead for the blink of an eye before Dietrich burst back around him on the cushion as the pair shot onto the backchute.

Montieth settled in for another run in the final corners but Dietrich rode into the turns in the middle groove before sliding up to the cushion to race to the checkers.

But just as Dietrich caught the turn four rough to drive off, his car twitched on the edge of the cushion allowing Montieth to drop underneath for a drag race to the checkers.

In the end Dietrich held on for the victory by .190 seconds.

“Now that’s exciting,” Dietrich said before exiting his sprinter.

“I knew Brian was there. I could hear him. I knew I was gonna’ get slid in one and two,” he said.

“You just drive in wide and high,” Dietrich said of knowing when there is a slide job coming like the kind Montieth attempted on the final lap.

“And then while he’s sliding you are driving forward.”

Montieth was second followed by Krimes, Don Kreitz Jr. and Greg Hodnett.

Sixth through 10th went to Lafferty, Lucas Wolfe, Esh, Cory Haas and Brent Marks.

Heats for the 34-car field went to Lafferty, Krimes, Esh and Dietrich with Ryan Smith taking the consolation race.

Wolfe set fast time with a quick lap of 16.687 seconds.

The feature was delayed in starting an hour by a power outage on the frontstretch that occurred just as the field was firing off.

June 27, 2014 Feature Finish:

410 sprints, 25 laps: 1. Danny Dietrich, 2. Brian Montieth, 3. Alan Krimes, 4. Don Kreitz Jr., 5. Greg Hodnett. 6. Rick Lafferty, 7. Lucas Wolfe, 8. Doug Esh, 9. Cory Haas, 10. Brent Marks, 11.

ZEARFROSS THRILLS CROWD WITH FIRST SELINSGROVE SPRINT WIN OF 2014

RINE MAKES LATE-RACE PASS FOR THIRD LATE MODEL WIN; GARMAN SCORES FIRST CAREER PRO STOCK VICTORY; BISSINGER RETURNS TO WINNERS CIRCLE IN ROADRUNNERS

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – In an exciting race that at one point produced a three-wide battle for the lead, Brock Zearfoss of Jonestown secured the front spot on lap 11 in Saturday night's 25-lap 360 sprint car feature at Selinsgrove Speedway and drove to his first win of the season.

The win for Zearfoss, at the wheel of the Central Builders Supply No. 1-W, was his second career at the track and was worth $2,000.

Jeff Rine of Danville made a late-race pass for the lead in the 25-lap super late model feature for his third win of the year and 88th career at the track.

Derrick Garman of Loysville held off multiple challenges for the lead and scored his first career win at Selinsgrove Speedway in the 15-lap pro stock feature, while Keith Bissinger of Orangeville powered to his fourth win of the season in the 12-lap roadrunner race.

Selinsgrove Speedway will present the URC-sanctioned Middleswarth Potato Chips Firecracker 30 for 358-360 sprint cars paying $2,500 to win plus super late models and pro stocks at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, June 28.

Polesitter Bobby Parrow took the early in the sprint car feature and was chased by fourth-place starter Ryan Kissinger. Kissinger and second-place starter Michael Walter II dueled for the runner-up position for several laps while sixth-place starter Brock Zearfoss joined the battle at the front of the pack.

On the sixth circuit, a three-wide race for the lead between Parrow, Kissinger, and Zearfoss unfolded through turns one and two. On a lap seven restart, Kissinger made a pass underneath Parrow in turn one to take the lead. Another torrid battle for the lead developed between Kissinger and Zearfoss, while an exciting wheel-to-wheel race was taking place for the top five positions between eighth-place starter TJ Stutts, fifth-place starter Derek Locke,and 10th-place starter Mark Smith.

On the 11th lap, Zearfoss attempted a pass on the low side through turns one and two but had to wait until turn four to make the winning pass using the outside line by Kissinger. Zearfoss then opened up a lead only to have Stutts make a spectacular effort to catch him in the final laps.

At the finish, Zearfoss was victorious by just 1.5 seconds over Stutts, Smith, Locke, and seventh-place starter Pat Cannon.

Front-row starter Hayes Mattern led the first lap of the late model feature over polesitter Pancho Lawler. On the second circuit, fourth-place starter Jerry Bard moved into the second position and started to reel in Mattern. With five laps completed, Mattern was leading Bard, third-place starter Matt Cochran, Lawler, and sixth-place starter Donnie Schick.

On the ninth circuit, Bard was in striking distance and made a pass for the lead by Mattern using the outside lane in turn two. At the halfway point, Bard had a solid lead over Mattern, ninth-place starter Jeff Rine, Cochran, and fifth-place starter Tony Adams. With 10 laps to race, Rine advanced to second and quickly gained real estate on Bard.

Rine made the winning pass by Bard using the inside groove racing off turn four on lap 22. Once in front of the pack, Rine stretched his lead and posted a 2.2-second margin of victory over Bard, seventh-place starter Jim Yoder, Adams, and Schick.

Second-place starter Kurt Wray powered into the lead at the start of the pro stock feature. Wray was trailed by fourth-place starter AJ Stroup for the first two laps until both AJ and his teammate and polesitter Nate Stroup withdrew from the race. Sixth-place starte Derrick Garman took over the second position and set his sights on Wray while 10th-place starter Nathan Long advanced to third.

On the sixth circuit, Wray's car bobbled off the fourth turn and allowed Garman and eighth-place starter Brad Mitch to race by. The final laps produced another suspenseful finish as Mitch pulled alongside of Garman for the lead and win in turn three on the final lap only to have a caution flag break up the battle. For the one-lap chase to the checkered flag, Garman won by just .44 of a second over Mitch, Andrew Shoop, Jamin Chapmin, and Jake Buck.

In the roadrunner feature, second-place starter Curtis Lawton led the first lap, only to bobble in the second turn and lose the spot to fifth-place starter Keith Bissinger on the second circuit. Bissinger set the pace the rest of the event while being chased by third-place starter John Fowler Jr. At the finish, Bissinger was victorious by 2.2 seconds over Fowler, Bob Bussey, Brian Johnson, and Butch Shaffer.

Central PA 358 Point Series presented by Capitol Renegade

The Central PA 358 Point Series presented by Capitol Renegade kicked off the summer with all three tracks that host the 358 division in action this weekend. Friday night saw Robbie Kendall and Adrian Shaffer both score their 2nd wins of the season at Trail Way and Williams Grove Speedway's. Series point leader Kevin Nouse would score another top 3 finish at Williams Grove Speedway while Brad McClelland who has been keeping pace with Nouse for the Championship stormed through the field at Trail Way to score a runner Up finish. Nouse who scored a big win Sunday night at Susquehanna Speedway lost only 10 points this week to McClelland in the season long points chase. With the wins on Friday night both drivers moved back into the top 10 in points. Saturday night one of the young rising stars of Central PA sprint car racing Matt Campbell would pick up his 2nd win of the season in a thrilling feature at Lincoln Speedway. The win also helped Matt climb closer to the point leaders who have been in control of the series standings most of the season. The big gainer this week was 2009 Series Champion Jeff Rohrbaugh who since coming back after early season troubles has 2 wins (on the same weekend) and a string of top 5 finishes to help him climb to just outside the top 10 with a lot of racing yet to go in 2014. Jeff along with youngsters Chase Dietz (a 2 time winner in 2014), and Chandler Leiby are going to make it tough on the point leaders in the summer months.

The top 10 in points for the Central PA 358 Point Series presented by Capitol Renegade looks like this ...

1. Kevin Nouse -515 Pts. (5 Win) 2. Brad McClelland - 439 Pts. (4 Win) 3. Chase Dietz -355 Pts. (2 win) 4. Matt Campbell -337 Pts. (2 win) 5. Chandler Leiby -315 Pts. 6. Niki Young -274 Pts.

PRS 2014 – 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

Fuller Wins Port Royal NDRL Northeast Late Model Cash, Cisney Wins One For Juniata County Fans In Sprints, Snook Gets Econos

6/21/14

Port Royal – Tim Fuller of Watertown, Ny., scored a rich payday at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night, besting a stellar 35-car NDRL Late Model field with a powerful move by Mason Zeigler for the lead and victory, worth $3,000.

In the 25-lap 410 sprint car feature, Dylan Cisney poured some local flavor into victory lane by holding off Doug Esh for the win as a hometown favorite.

And in the 355 econo late model division Todd Snook took his first checkers of the season.

Fuller started fifth in the 30-lap NDRL Northeast late model field as Mason Zeigler started on the pole.

Zeigler, a 21-year old gasser from Chalk Hill who set a new one-lap track record for late models earlier in the night, took control when the race got underway over fourth starter Jared Miley of South Park.

The only caution flag of the race unfurled with five laps in the book and the restart saw NDRL Northeast point leader Keith Barbara of South Park race into second but fail to challenge Zeigler for the lead.

Fuller began coming to life near the halfway point of the race, using the high groove to complete his advances, taking over third from Miley on the 14th tour.

He got by Barbara with 14 laps to go and set his sights on leader Zeigler who was blasting around the bottom of the track.

Zeigler then moved up to the top groove as Fuller pulled up on this back bumper but by that time Fuller was into his rhythm and there was only one more spot for him to conquer.

Fuller pulled the trigger on Zeigler with a low dive in the third corner before pulling a slide job to complete the pass after catching the cushion in the fourth turn with 11 laps left.

Once in front Fuller entered the backmarkers with seven laps to go and only once did Zeigler get close enough to think about mounting a challenge but after the lapped traffic separated Fuller was again able to jet away, taking his first career Port Royal victory by 1.658 seconds.

Zeigler finished second followed by Miley, Barbara and Dan Stone of Thompson.

Sixth through 10th went to Jamie Lathroum, Mechanicsville, Md.; Jason Cover, York Haven; Mike Lupfer, Shermansdale; Tim Wilson, McClure; and Max Blair, Centerville.

Heats went to Blair, Lathroum, Wilson and Zeigler with Jason Schmidt taking the B Main.

Zeigler set a new one lap track record in qualifications with a time of 18.072 seconds.

Perhaps picking up where Keith Kauffman’s retirement left off in exciting the hometown fans, hometown driver Dylan Cisney started on the pole of the 410 sprint main with Dave Ely chasing him in second when the race began.

This race too was only slowed by one caution flag, just shy of the halfway point with 12 laps completed.

Curt Stroup held third spot early before sixth starter Doug Esh took the position with three away.

The leaders entered the backmarkers on the eighth lap with Cisney circling the high side of the speedway in near flawless form.

At the restart on lap 12, eighth starter Rick Lafferty was sitting fourth with fifth starter Blane Heimbach still in fifth spot.

Cisney pulled away from Ely when action resumed as Esh labored for second, finally getting the spot with three laps to go after the race again entered lapped traffic with five laps remaining.

Heimbach followed Esh through for position with three laps to go and the pair rapidly began closing on Cisney.

As the leader crossed the stripe for the white flag, Esh was poised to make a strong move for control but a small slip on the cushion in the second turn cost him just enough momentum entering the third corner to prevent a pass for the win.

Cisney instead enthralled the local supporters from Juniata County when he took the win by .491 seconds with Esh a challenging second followed by Heimbach, Ely and ninth starter Mike Wagner.

Sixth through 10th went to Lafferty, Greg Hodnett, 13th starter Mike Erdley, Curt Stroup and fourth starter Chad Layton.

Heats went to Layton and Stroup.

Todd Snook took the lead during the mid stages of the 15-lap econo late model main to record his first win of the season at the track in the new division.

Tim Krape came to second but failed to challenge for the win.

Newcomer Curtis Heath finished third followed by Eric Irvin and Cody Butterbaugh.

Sixth through 10th went to Harold Ranck, Jared Fulkroad, Shaun Miller, Lucas Bryner and Danny Sollers.

Matt Campbell gets pole in revenge draw, wins second of the year in “358” sprints;

Montgomery, Leppo both pick up their fourth Lincoln wins in Central PA Legends

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 6/21/2014 – Some people go to Disney World after a major sports accomplishment. Robbie Kendall is going to Cancun.

A day before leaving to celebrate his sister’s 21st birthday, Kendall scored his first career win in Saturday night’s BAPS Auto Paints and Supply Night 25-lap feature at Lincoln Speedway.

“It’s about time!” exclaimed Kendall upon exiting his family-owned Falter Fundraising/Crenshaw’s Auto Repair #55K in victory lane, “I can’t believe I’m here! If it wouldn’t be for my parents and our sponsors, I wouldn’t be.”

Time trials and an eight-car inversion put Kendall on the pole. He led every lap, despite late-race pressure from sixth-starting Brian Montieth over the second half of the event.

“I saw the ‘21’ on board early, and I just tried to focus on hitting my marks,” said Kendall.

Montieth drove between both Brent Marks and then Cory Haas to take second on lap three. At the time, Kendall enjoyed a 2.22-second lead. Montieth closed to within a second with five laps to go, one lap before Gerard McIntyre, Jr. flipped in turn three of lap 21. Until the red, the race had gone non-stop, and leaders were driving through heavy lapped traffic from lap nine on.

McIntyre was uninjured, but his flip while racing the Rahmer brothers for fifth place was the only stoppage of the event.

Kendall restarted in front of one lapped car, and held off Montieth by .65 seconds at the end, with Haas, BAPS driver Brent Marks, and Freddie Rahmer completing the top five. Sixth through tenth were Brandon Rahmer, Lance Dewease, Jim Siegel, Aaron Ott, and Billy Dietrich.

It was actually Kendall’s second win in two nights after taking the checkered flag in Mike Parris’ “358” sprint car at Trail-Way Speedway on Friday night. He was the first driver to ever win in two “main” divisions on successive nights at the two tracks.

It was a long night for points leader Alan Krimes, who made the show through the consolation event, started 23rd, and finished 14th.

Heats for the 410 sprinters were won by Kendall, Marks, and Haas, with Matt Boland winning the consolation. Gerard McIntyre, Jr. set fast time over the 30-car field with a one lap time of 13.276 seconds (101.687 MPH).

A revenge draw for the top three finishers of each of the heats put Matt Campbell on the pole, and the Fawn Grove 16-year-old took advantage to score his second win of the year in the 20-lap “358” sprint car feature.

But it wasn’t easy. Campbell followed fellow front-row starter Chris Arnold for the first eight laps before taking the lead on lap nine. He was actually scored third behind four-starting Isaac Sneering on lap two before reclaiming the runner-up spot.

Although he was scored the leader every lap thereafter, Campbell and Arnold swapped the lead several times over the next four laps before 11th-starting Chandler Leiby grabbed the runner-up spot from Arnold with five laps to go.

A 20th-lap caution gave Campbell the space he needed for the one-lap shootout, with Leiby settling for second, and late-charging Jeff Rohrbaugh (who started ninth) crossing third. Chase Dietz and Arnold completed the top five.

Points leader Niki Young sustained a flat-tire in the 20th-lap caution, brought out for spins by Sneeringer and Hammaker. He finished 17th in the end.

Heats for the 20 “358” sprinters were won by Jeff Halligan, Sneeringer, and Dietz.

Lucas Montgomery and Harlon Leppo each scored their fourth career Lincoln wins in the Central PA Legends features.

Montgomery won his second Lincoln race in a row in the 15-lap make-up feature from May 24th. Montgomery started on the outside of the front row and held off polesitter Chris Spidle for the victory. Harlon Leppo came from 12th starting spot to cross third, with Bob Stough and Bill Diehl completing the top five.

In the regularly-scheduled feature, Leppo started on the pole and led every lap. In behind, four drivers battled for the runner-up spot throughout the race, with Stough closing to within a half-carlength of Leppo at the checkered flag, Diehl crossing third, and Montgomery and Jacob Feltch rounding out the top five.

Heats for the 36 Central PA Legends were won by Leppo, Diehl, Stough, and Joe Ehrsman, with Vern Houseman winning the consolation.

BAPS Auto Paints and Supply added $300 to the winner’s share, a $200 bonus to the second-place finisher, and an extra $100 to the third-place finisher in each of the sprint car features and an extra $150, $100, and $50 to the top three finishers in the Legends main.

Next Saturday, June 28th, Lincoln Speedway hosts 2014 Pennsylvania Speedweek activities with the 15TH ANNUAL KEVIN GOBRECHT MEMORIAL featuring the 410 Sprints in a $7,000-to-win event. Joining them will be the Central PA Legends. Time trials will get underway at 7:30 PM. Gates open at 5:30 PM.

KENDALL HOLDS OFF McCLELLAND FOR SECOND TRAIL-WAY WIN OF THE YEAR;

LUCAS MONTGOMERY TAKES CENTRAL PA LEGENDS FEATURE;

JEFF FOSTER LIMITED STOCK WINNER;

CRAIG WAGAMAN HOLDS OFF TEAMMATE FOR STREET STOCK WIN

Hanover, PA (06/20/14) – Robbie Kendall held off a charging Brad McClelland to score his second win of the year in the 25-lap “358” sprint car feature at Trail-Way Speedway Friday night.

Kendall took the lead from his outside front row starting spot and led every lap of the race, despite late-race pressure from four-time winner McClelland, who closed in when Kendall got boxed in behind lapped traffic in the closing stages.

“I got behind those lapped cars, and didn’t know where they were going,” said the Catonsville, MD driver upon exiting his Turning Stone Resort & Casino/Vermeer Mid-Atlantic/Wurtzer’s Garage #55 in victory lane, “I knew Brad was coming. I looked up at the scoreboard and saw he was second by lap six, and I thought here he comes.”

McClelland, who was scheduled to start 12th but started eighth when a few cars opted for the rear, was the event’s hard charger, passing Denny Gross for second on the sixth lap.

By that time, McClelland was quarter-lap behind the leader, and closed within a few carlengths by the checkered flag.

“We destroyed one last week,” said Kendall, “It was just a racing incident. But it’s great to come back from that.”

The official time in the non-stop race was 6 minutes, 11 seconds.

Isaac Sneeringer came from sixth starting spot to finish third, with Gross and Dwight Leppo completing the top five.

Heats for the 12 “358” sprinters were won by McClelland and Sneeringer.

Lucas Montgomery made a late-race pass to score his second Trail-Way win in a row in the 20-lap Central PA Legends feature.

Montgomery started eighth, was third by lap five, moved into second when race-long leader Scott Houdeshell dropped from the field while leading on lap ten, and drove under Bill Diehl to lead lap 19.

Diehl settled for a close second, with Bob Stough, Chris Transeau, and Travis McClelland rounding out the top five.

Heats for the 20 Legends were won by Stough and Chris Spidle.

Jeff Foster claimed his first career win in the 15-lap limited stock feature.

Foster started fifth and took the lead from Jason Chronister on lap six. From there, he led the rest of the way despite repeated challenges from second-place finisher Ricky Weaver, Jr.

Third through fifth were 12th-starting Tom Senseney, tenth-starting Kyle Rohrbaugh, and Jason Chronister.

Qualifiers for the 18 limited stocks were won by Shannon Weaver and Ricky Weaver.

Craig Wagaman came from sixth starting spot to win the 20-lap street stock feature.

He grabbed the lead from Jed Latshaw on the fifth lap, and, like the other winners Friday night, had to hold off 13th-starting Dan Furman over the final seven laps. His Miner’s Machine teammate was on his back bumper as they crossed the finish line, with Pat McClane, Chad Stine, and Latshaw third through fifth.

Heats for the 15 street stocks were won by Latshaw and McClane.

Tomorrow (6/21), Trail-Way Speedway will host the 3rd Annual Armin Hostetter Classic East Coast Flat Track Series for A.M.A. Motorcycle Short Track. Gates open at 3:00 p.m. with racing at 6:00 p.m.

Next Friday (6/27), Trail-Way will host the 358 Sprint Cars, Limited Stocks, 600cc Micro Sprints, Street Stocks, and Classic Cars. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. and racing begins at 7:30 p.m.

Montieth Breaks Through For Williams Grove 410 Sprint Win,

Adrian Shaffer takes 358 sprint championship

6/20/14

Mechanicsburg – Brian Montieth of Phoenixville finally broke through for this first 410 sprint win of the Williams Grove Speedway season on Friday night, taking the lead from Alan Krimes with 13 laps down in the 25-lap main event.

In the special 25-lap championship race for the 358 sprints, Adrian Shaffer drove to his second oval win of the season after an exciting four-car race for the lead was contested.

Montieth started fourth in the 410 sprint main and drove up to second on the first circuit as Krimes took control of the race.

Krimes entered traffic with eight away as Montieth kept drawing closer and closer and then when Krimes made a misstep while trying to negotiate traffic in the second corner, Montieth used the outside cushion to breeze by into the lead with 12 laps to go.

The races only caution flag then unfurled for a slowing Austin Hogue.

Montieth streaked away when action resumed and had a straightaway advantage over Krimes with seven laps to go.

He took the win by 2.546 seconds after losing a win two weeks ago by .01 at the finish line.

“We was either gonna’ win or take it out of the place tonight,” Montieth said in victory lane after claiming what was the 16th triumph of his Williams Grove career.

After starting eighth, Greg Hodnett took third before the halfway point but would fail to advance any further.

Fifth starter Lance Dewease challenged Hodnett for third on the restart but ended up fourth with ninth starter Doug Esh racing home in fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Gerard McIntyre Jr., Don Kreitz Jr., Ryan Smith, Cory Haas and Steve Buckwalter.

Heats went to McIntyre, Hodnett and Mark Smith.

Jordan Givler tried to lead the first lap of the championshp for the 358 sprints but fell off the pace as the field completed lap one.

That gave Chris Arnold the lead but he soon surrendered that on the third lap when on a restart he hit the outside backstretch wall, handing control over to Matt Campbell.

Campbell then led until the 14th circuit when Shaffer finally prevailed in what had developed as a four-car race for the win between Campbell, Jay Galloway, Brock Zearfoss and Shaffer.

After Shaffer got the lead he tried to pull away to the win but Zearfoss took second with four laps to go and threatened to make a race of it near the end.

Time ran out for Zearfoss however as Shaffer took his ninth career oval victory and second of the season.

Kevin Nouse rode home third followed by Campbell and Phil Walter.

Sixth through 10th went to Chandler Leiby, Kody Lehman, Rich Eichelberger, DJ Montgomery and Brie Hershey.

Heats went to Tyler Esh and Shaffer.

Port Royal Speedway The Only Place To See Super Sprints And Super Lates Every Saturday Night

Erdley, Esh, Frye, Lupfer, Watkins, Parker And Powell Get Port Royal Wins.

Capacity crowd gives biggest payday of night worth over $5,600 to 50/50 winner!

Free Fan Appreciation Night Hugely Attended

6/14/14

Port Royal – Of all the big winners at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night including Mike Erdley and Doug Esh in 410 sprints and Coleby Frye and Mike Lupfer in late models, nobody took more money home from the track than the winner of the 50/50 from Middletown, Pennsylvania, who pocketed over $5,600 as his take.

Including the grandstands and infield areas, a near capacity crowd of thousands crowded into the speedway on Free Fan Appreciation Night, backing up traffic along access routes into the borough of Port Royal upon their arrival to watch seven exciting features that also saw Mark Watkins and Eric Parker split 305 sprint features and Bill Powell claim xtreme stocks.

Erdley ended up winning the make-up Fallen Heroes Championship 410 sprint feature worth $5,000 after the race restarted with nine laps recorded, picking up where it was rained out back on May 24.

But his victory was a hard fought and exciting one as the Elizabethville driver was passed early after the resumption of action by Rick Lafferty only to reclaim the spot with a crossover lane change in the fourth corner as the pair raced back to the stripe.

And then Erdley began opening up a comfortable advantage in the affair as eyes turned to Lucas Wolfe, who restarted fourth in the field but came to life as the race got to the halfway point.

Wolfe took second from Lafferty with seven laps to go in the 25-lapper and ran down Erdley’s lead by the final lap in order to raise the fans that could find a seat onto their feat for the checkers.

Wolfe raced just off Erdley’s rear bumper down the backchute on the final circuit before putting on a swoop deep in the third corner that netted him the lead.

But just as he had done early after the restart with Lafferty, as Wolfe slid up the track and took the lead, Erdley hit the binders and turned the car off of the cushion to drive back underneath Wolfe as the pair headed for the checkers in order to reclaim control and the victory by a scant .24 second margin.

Wolfe, Lafferty, Blane Heimbach and Davey Sammons rounded out the top five.

The May 3 410 sprint make up went to the line with Rodney Westhafer and Justin Barger on the front row and when the green flag dropped fourth starter Davey Sammons put on a run out of the second corner that saw him blast underneath Westhafer in the third turn only to loose control of the car and back it into the outside fence before turning over.

Westhafer took command when action resumed with sixth starter Curt Stroup muscling to the front early, taking second immediately ahead of Barger.

Meanwhile, seventh starter Esh went to the outside cushion and rocketed through the field and was up to fourth with five down in the race as fifth starter Mike Wagner honed in for the lead.

Wagner took control of the event on the seventh tour as Esh continued his assault on the pack, taking third with eight in the books and then second a lap later.

But Wagner proved to be tougher to handle for Esh, who dogged the Port Royal veteran for numerous laps as the race waged through the backmarkers.

With eight laps to go Esh finally caught Wagner and using his skillful prowess around the outside of the track he blasted in to the lead on the 18th tour to never look back enroute to the popular win worth $3,000.

Wagner settled for second followed by Lafferty, 16th starter Blane Heimbach and Stroup.

Frye led every lap of the 25-lap Fallen Heroes Championship for the super late models after starting second on the field.

He entered the back of the pack on the eighth lap and worked through traffic easily.

Andy Haus was running second when the first of two caution flags fell on the field with 17 laps down.

Another restart with just two laps to go regrouped the field but Frye was too stout for the field, taking the $2,000 victory for his second in a row in the Fallen Heroes race for the late models.

Haus rode home second with a fine run for Dave Zona placing him third followed by 10th starter Tim Wilson and Nick Dickson.

Matt Parks threatened to dominate the May 3 make up late model main, starting second in the field but point leader Mike Lupfer had other ideas.

Although Parks got away during the first half of the 20-lap race, Lupfer took second with five in the books and then slowly and steadily reeled him in to contest for the lead.

It took until there were just six laps left for the Shermansdale driver to get inside Parks in the second turn.

And once the bottom was cleared for Lupfer he rode the money lane down low to the victory, pulling away to the finish over Parks.

After starting 18th in the field, Tim Smith Jr. put on a clinic to finish a stout third followed by polesitter Mitch Hack and Tim Fedder.

Mark Watkins wired the field for the victory in the Fallen Heroes Championship for the 305 sprints, withstanding a pounding assault from Tyler Bear for the lead.

Bear took second with 11 laps to go and threw everything but the kitchen sink at Watkins, who proved to be unshakable to the finish.

Bear, Anthony Fiore, Jeff Miller Jr. and 22nd starter Mike Wagner II., completed the top five.

Eric Parker wired for his 305 feature win as well.

Tyler Bear started eighth in the main and drove into second with six laps left in the 20 lapper but soon withdrew from the event, letting Parker have it all his way to the finish.

Jeff Miller Jr. was second followed by Nathan Gramley, Ken Duke and 10th starter Mark Watkins.

The 15-lap xtreme stock feature closed the night with Bill Powell taking his second win of the season in the division but only after a volley of misfortunes altered the outcome of the race.

Early leader Deron Henry fell back on the sixth lap when Matt Wampler took over at the helm but then along came 11th starter Corey Kepner, who stormed to the front, taking the lead with only two laps to go.

But just after Kepner was scored the leader the red flag appeared for Henry, who flipped his car in the second turn.

And then under the stoppage, Kepner withdrew from the race, handing the lead and eventual win over to Powell with Wampler ending up second followed by Bob Bussey, Mike Goodwin and Tyler Amtower.

A power outage effecting the frontstretch and first turn lighting delayed the show after the first three features were completed, forcing an approximate one hour delay before the final four main events could be completed.

DIETRICH CLAIMS $5,000 WIN IN LINCOLN ALL-STAR CIRCUIT OF CHAMPIONS “A” MAIN;

Phil Walter claims first Lincoln victory in 22 years in “358” sprint car feature

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 6/14/2014 – Danny Dietrich is making it a habit of winning big shows at Lincoln Speedway.

The 2012 Lincoln track champ had a perfect night, setting fast time, winning the dash, and claiming this third win in the last four years in the annual All-Star Circuit of Champions show in the Pigeon Hills Saturday night, starting on the pole and leading every lap.

“It doesn’t get much better than this!” exclaimed Dietrich upon exiting his Gary Kauffman-owned Sandoe’s Fruit Market/Weikert’s Livestock #48 in victory lane, “We have a lot of sponsors here tonight. It’s great to do this for them. It’s gonna be one heck-of-a celebration in the pits.”

“We just get lucky,” said Dietrich of drawing the pole for the feature event, “We come here to win every night, and the last two weeks we’ve had tough luck. I think we’re back on track.”

“I don’t know what happened to Brian (Montieth),” said Dietrich, “He was little better than I was tonight on the cushion. I wasn’t bad, but it was his kind of race track.”

What happened to Montieth, who started fourth, was contact with a lapped car while running second on the frontstretch of lap 14, the only caution of the 30-lap event.

Former track champ Lance Dewease started on the front row and actually ran second every lap of the race except laps 11-13, when he gave way to Montieth. Dewease assumed second for the restart and ran there the rest of the way, holding off Tim Shaffer, Jac Haudenschild, and Jim Siegel, who finished third through fifth.

Siegel moved into the top five when All-Star points leader Dale Blaney dropped to the infield on lap 15.

Dietrich’s win was dominant. He had more than a two-second lead when the mid-race caution flag came out, three second lead by lap 19, and final margin of victory of 2.84 seconds over Dewease.

Sixth through tenth were 12th-starting Gerard McIntyre, Jr., Aaron Ott, Steve Owings, Greg Hodnett, and Brent Marks.

Cory Haas came from 24th-starting spot to finish 13th.

When asked about the lapped traffic that’s always a factor at Lincoln, Dietrich summed it up by saying “…I try to take my time without wasting time.”

Heats for the 410 sprinters were won by Ryan Smith, Ryan Bohlke, Freddie Rahmer, and Robbie Kendall, with McIntyre winning the B-Main. Danny Dietrich won the Dash and set fast time over the 40-car field with a one lap time of 13.310 seconds (101.427 MPH).

McClure’s Phil Walter started on the pole and led every lap of the 20-lap “358” sprint car feature, holding off the late challenges Jeff Rohrbaugh and Chase Dietz for his first Lincoln win in 22 years. Walter, who won a 410 sprint car feature at Lincoln in 1992, crossed .31 seconds in front of Rohrbaugh, who started ninth and caught 10th-starting Dietz for second with two laps to go.

Dietz settled for third, with Tyler Esh and 14th-starting Chandler Leiby completing the top five.

Sixth through tenth were polesitter Jeff Halligan, lady driver Brie Hershey, Niki Young, Troy Wagaman, Jr., and Matt Campbell.

Heats for the 28 358 sprinters were won by Campbell, Dietz, and Isaac Sneeringer, with Ashley Cappetta winning the consolation.

Next Saturday, June 21, it will be BAPS NIGHT with the 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints & Central PA Legends (Regular & 5/24 Make-up Feature). Time trials will get underway at 7:30 PM. Gates open at 5:30 PM.

OTT & WILSON SCORE FIRST SELINSGROVE WINS IN SPRINTS & LATE MODELS; BACHMAN WINS PRO STOCK THRILLER

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Aaron Ott of East Berlin chased down Davie Franek of Wantage, N.J., in the first half of Saturday night's 34th running of the Jack Gunn Memorial for 360 sprint cars before securing the lead and rocketing to his first career win at the historic Snyder County half-mile oval.

Ott earned $3,500 for his victory in the 30-lap United Racing Company-sanctioned tribute race to the late Hall of Fame promoter Jack Gunn at the wheel of the Don Ott Racing Engines No. 25. Ott, who also won the URC 360 sprint car race Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway, became the fourth different 360 sprint car feature winner this season at Selinsgrove.

"I wanted to win here for so long," said Ott in Victory Lane. "My hat's off to my crew and the racetrack. This was an absolutely awesome racetrack tonight on both the top and bottom. I'm just ecstatic to be here. I can't say enough about this weekend."

Derek Locke of Mechanicsburg was the night's Fast Tees Fast Qualifier over a stellar field of 358-360 sprint cars with a lap time of 17.287.

Tim Wilson of Port Royal also earned his first career win at the track in the 25-lap super late model feature. Wilson became the division's sixth different winner in seven races this season.

The suspenseful, wheel-to-wheel battle in the 15-lap pro stock feature went to Kyle Bachman of Selinsgrove. The win was Bachman's second of the season.

Selinsgrove Speedway will present the first-ever Patriot Sprint Tour-sanctioned event plus late models and pro stocks at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, June 14. The sprint cars will compete for $2,571 to win in the Joe Whitcomb Memorial. Gates will open at 5 p.m.

Polesitter Robbie Stillwaggon took the early lead in the sprint car feature over second-place starter Davie Franek. On the third circuit, however, Stillwaggon's car developed mechanical problems and he was forced to withdraw from the race. Franek inherited the lead and was chased by fourth-place starter Greg Hodnett.

A battle for third ensued between third-place starter TJ Stutts and sixth-place starter Aaron Ott. Ott eventually advanced to third and quickly reeled in Hodnett in a race for the second position. On lap 10, Ott drew a bead on the bottom of the racetrack through turns one and two and took over the second position.

At the halfway point in the 30-lap contest, Ott made the winning pass using the inside lane off turn two following a wheel-to-wheel battle with Franek. Once he got the lead, Ott started to stretch his lead in traffic as Stutts powered into second on lap 22.

With five laps remaining, Ott was navigating his way through heavy lapped traffic. At the finish, Ott scored an impressive 3.8-second margin of victory over Stutts, 15th-place starter Mark Smith, Hodnett, and 20th-place starter Pat Cannon.

Second-place starter Tim Wilson led the first lap of the late model feature. On the second circuit, second-place runner Harry Miller spun in turn and collected five other cars in the incident. When the race resumed, Wilson set the pace in front of sixth-place starter Donnie Schick while a race for third unfolded between eighth-place starter Jeff Rine and ninth-place starter Jim Yoder.

On a lap 11 restart, Bryan Bernheisel and Austin Berry made contact on the backstretch, resulting in an 11-car melee that brought out the red flag. There were no driver injuries reported. When the race restarted, Yoder's car developed a flat tire on lap 12.

In the second half of the race, Wilson streaked away from the field and posted a straightaway victory over Schick, Rine, last week's winner Dave Zona, and Bryan Bernheisel.

Fourth-place starter Nathan Long charged into the lead at the start of the pro stock feature. Long was pressured by polesitter Jake Buck and then fifth-place starter Kyle Bachman. Long and Bachman see-sawed for the lead several times and an all-out war on wheels unfolded at the front of the pack.

Bachman eventually secured the lead with an inside pass racing off turn four. In the final laps 11th-place starter Brad Mitch stormed into the second spot and put in a bid for the lead. On the final lap, no less than five cars were racing under a blanket to determine the winner of the suspenseful feature.

When the checkered flag waved, it was Bachman taking the win by the slimmest of margins over Mitch, 10th-place starter Andrew Shoop, Buck, and ninth-place starter AJ Stroup.

Bacon Sizzles For USAC Eastern Storm Port Royal Victory

Trent Brenneman subs and wins Port first in stock cars, Drevicki takes ARDC Midgets

6/7/14

Port Royal –Brady Bacon of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, took the $6,000 USAC Eastern Storm sprint car feature event at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night, putting on an exciting show for the fans for his first ever oval victory.

For Bacon, aboard the Hoffman Racing No. 69, the victory helped widen his advantage in the Eastern Storm series that concludes on Sunday night.

In the 15-lap econo late model feature event, super sub Trent Brenneman upset the field while filling in for regular driver Todd Snook to etch his name in the Port Royal history books where his grandfather Butch Renninger owns countless stock car wins and titles.

The 20-lap ARDC Midget feature went to Steve Drevicki in a flag to flag performance.

The start of the 30-lap USAC sprint car feature event got off to a rocky start when the yellow flag unfurled for a false start.

As the yellow fell over the field, seventh starter Tracy Hines of New Castle, Indiana, snap rolled in the second corner, turning the yellow to red.

Hines was uninjured but two other cars involved including Robert Ballou had to tag the rear of the field for the restart.

Second starter Jon Stanbrough of Avon, Indiana, took control of the main when action did get started with polesitter Kevin Thomas Jr. of Cullman, Alabama, following in second and third starter Bacon running in third.

During the early going Stanbrough and Thomas got away from Bacon and raced back and forth for control before Thomas finally seized the spot on the fourth tour.

But one lap later Bacon surged into second while touring around the inside groove and as leader Thomas entered the backmarkers on the 10th circuit, Bacon was knocking on the door for the lead.

It took a few attempts for Bacon to gain control as he pushed his racer underneath Stewart in the first and second turns repeatedly only to see Thomas regain the lead as he jetted off of the cushion onto the backstretch.

But finally with 12 laps to go Bacon was able to take the spot for good before beginning to get away from the field.

Meanwhile, having restarted at the rear of the field, Robert Ballou was stirring the fans with an impressive march into the front of the field.

And by the time that Bacon took the checkers with Thomas and Stanbrough following, Ballou was knocking on the door for third.

Last year’s Port Royal USAC winner, Dave Darland crossed the finish line in fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Chase Stockon, Justin Grant, Bryan Clauson, Shane Cockrum and Hunter Schuerenberg.

Heats for the 23 cars went to Hines, Cockrum and Ballou.

Fast time, worth $100 from Packers Concessions, was set by Justin Grant of Ione, California, with a lap of 19.247 seconds.

Brenneman started second in the 15-lap econo late model feature event but found third starter Jason Nace taking the lead at the start.

Brenneman stuck close to leader Nace during the first 10 laps before pulling the trigger for the lead with just five laps to go.

Once in command, Brenneman pulled away from the field as a four car race for second unfolded between Nace, Eric Irvin, Tim Krape and three time winner Andrew Yoder.

Racing through traffic, Yoder bulled his way into second with a pair of laps left but failed to close on Brenneman.

Irvin was third followed by Krape and Nace.

Twin heats for the 16 cars went to Yoder and Nace.

Drevicki started on the pole of the ARDC Midget main and led all 20 laps of the race.

A lone caution flag at the halfway point regrouped the field but no one could challenge Drevicki.

Instead attention turned to eighth starter Steve Buckwalter who moved into second with a pair of laps to go.

Tim Buckwalter, who took second with nine laps to go, ended up falling to third at the finish.

Brenden Bright ended fourth and Bruce Buckwalter Jr. rode home fifth.

Heats went to Steve Buckwalter and Drevicki.

GRASSO SCORES FIRST CAREER LINCOLN WIN IN ANNUAL GOHN MEMORIAL FOR 410 SPRINTS;

Dietz, Bittinger claim 358 sprint wins; Zimmerman first-time Lincoln winner in All-American Outlaws

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 6/7/2014 – “Is this for real?”

So asked J.J. Grasso after holding off Danny Dietrich and then points leader Alan Krimes to claim his first career Lincoln Speedway 410 sprint car feature win in the Annual Daryl Gohn/Glenn Gohn, Sr. Memorial Saturday night.

Time trials and four-car inversions for the qualifiers placed Grasso on the outside of the front row for the 25-lapper. Grasso followed polesitter Steve Owings for a lap before making what turned out to be the race-winning pass on lap two. Despite leading the rest of the way, Grasso had to withstand the mid-race challenges of fourth-starting Dietrich and then the late-race charge of sixth-starting Krimes.

Grasso stayed on the top side for entire race, despite a disappearing cushion in the top of the turns. He actually bounced off the wall in turns three and four late in the race.

“It didn’t seem like that bottom was there in one and two,” said Grasso, “When I caught lapped traffic, those guys were running pretty equal. But I kept getting higher and higher off of two, and I wasn’t sure if I should try to maybe diamond it off a little bit or what.”

“You could see there’s just nothing there, said the driver of the BK Trucking #37, “It was nerve-racking, and I was holding my breath for every lap of it. I can’t believe this!”

Grasso’s final margin of victory was 1.94 seconds, and his total winnings (counting Gohn family and sponsor contingency prizes) was $4,600.

Krimes held onto the Lincoln points lead with his second-place finish, followed by Dietrich (who finished with a damaged front wing), Cory Haas, and Owings. Sixth through tenth were 11th-starting Brian Montieth, 13th-starting Lance Dewease, Ryan Smith, Jim Siegel, and Gerard McIntyre, Jr.

Heats for the 410 sprinters were won by Danny Dietrich, Haas, Grasso, and Owings, with Brandon Rahmer winning the consolation. Jim Siegel sets fast time over the 32-car field with a one lap time of 13.623 seconds (99.097 MPH).

In the 358 sprint division, Chase Dietz started the night off by scoring his second career win in the make-up feature from May 24th. Mike Bittinger held off Jeff Rohrbaugh and C.J. Tracey to win the regularly-scheduled event.

In the make-up feature, Dietz started eighth and passed sixth-starting Bittinger for the lead on lap seven. Bittinger faded to sixth at the end, with ninth-starting Niki Young, 11th-starting Kevin Nouse, Doug Hammaker, and Chandler Leiby completing the top five.

In the regularly-scheduled event, Bittinger drove the Michael Markey #31 to his fourth career Lincoln win. Bittinger again started sixth, and grabbed the lead from C.J. Tracy with two laps to go. Tracy, who passed polesitter Chris Frank on for the lead on lap four, finally gave up second to Jeff Rohrbaugh on lap 19. Tracy, Nouse, and 15th-starting Young (who flipped in his heat), rounded out the top five.

Heats for the 26 358 sprinters were won by Bittinger, Nouse, and Tracy.

Kurt Zimmerman won his first-ever Lincoln feature in the 20-lap All-American Outlaw event, a race which saw five lead changes among three drivers.

Zimmerman, from Pasadena, MD, crossed 1.41 seconds in front of Dylan Keim, who was not one of the drivers to lead the race.

Randy Doty led the first three laps before Justin Cullum and Zimmerman swapped the lead twice, with Zimmerman taking the lead for good on lap 11. Cullum, Steve Jorda, and Doty completed the top five.

Heats for the All American Outlaws were won by Doty and Zimmerman.

Next Saturday, June 14, it will be PROSPECT METAL & USED AUTO PARTS NIGHT featuring the ALL STAR CIRCUIT OF CHAMPIONS for 410 Sprints. They will be joined by the 358 Sprints plus KIDS BIG WHEELS races! Time trials will get underway at 7:30 PM. Gates open at 5:30 PM.

McCLELLAND MAKES IT FOUR OUT OF SEVEN IN TRAIL-WAY 358 SPRINTS;

Hanover, PA (06/06/14) –“I don’t know what to say about this race, but a win is a win.”

So said Brad McClelland after scoring his fourth win of the year in a bizarre 358 sprint car feature at Trail-Way Speedway Friday night.

“I nearly spun a few times myself,” said McClelland upon exiting his Littlestown Auto Care/Rucker Computer Solutions/Hoosier Tire #6R in victory lane, “Guess I was trying to make a race of it. I thought I’d better take it easy.”

McClelland drew the number-four pill for the start, but ended up on the front row after a first-lap crash which resulted in a flip by fifth-starting Robbie Kendall on the backstretch. Kendall made contact with a spinning Tyler Buchenauer exiting turn two, with Buchenauer sliding into the infield. One-time winner Kendall was uninjured.

After the red flag, McClelland started beside polesitter Seth Kearchner and took the lead at the drop of the green. He ran away from the field en route to a non-stop time of 6:07.31, crossing a quarter of-a-lap ahead of Kearchner, with hard charger Randy Whisler (who came from ninth starting spot), Isaac Sneeringer (who changed a flat tire during the first-lap red and came from the rear), and rookie Wyatt Hinkle rounding out the top five.

They were the only cars that finished the event, with several cars dropping to the infield during the non-stop race, and only the top four cars running on the lead lap at the checkered.

It was McClelland’s division-leading 37th Trail-Way sprint car win.

Heats for the 12 “358” sprint cars on hand were won by McClelland and Kendall.

Brian Marriott scored the win in the 20-lap Mason/Dixon 270cc micro-sprint feature.

Marriott started on the outside of the front row, but chased polesitter and leader Bill Laughman for the first three laps before Laughman stopped on the track during a fourth-lap caution.

Laughman restarted at the rear and came back through the field to finish fifth.

Marriott led the rest of the way, with Steven Cox, Cory Myers, and Jim Still crossing second through fourth.

Heats for the 19 micros were won by Still and Brent Bull, who was among the cars that brought out the fourth-lap caution and was not able to continue.

Dan Furman claimed his second win of the year and the 13th of his Trail-Way career in the 20-lap street stock feature.

Furman started sixth and took the lead from Jim Jacobs on lap three. Two laps later, third-starting Craig Wagaman took the lead, and he paced the field for the next six laps before losing front left tire pressure and turning the lead back over to Furman on lap 11. Wagaman eventually brought out the caution when his tire went flat and he didn’t finish.

Patrick McClane came from eighth starting spot to finish second, with Michael Goodwin, ninth-starting Matt Wampler, and Chad Stine completing the top five.

Heats for the 16 street stocks were won by Wagaman and Jacobs.

Kenny Startzman picked up his first career win in the 15-lap limited stock feature.

Startzman started third and took the lead from polesitter Rick Hopkins on lap three. He led the rest of the way, with a wild battle for the runner-up spot going to tenth-starting Ricky Weaver, Jr.

Third through fifth were 15th-starting Kyle Rohrbaugh, 12th-starting Matt Chronister, and Jeff Foster.

Qualifiers for the 17 limited stocks were won by Startzman and Robert Wellman.

Next Friday (6/13), Trail-Way will host the Precise Racing Products 358 Late Models, 358 Sprint Cars, 600cc Micro Sprints, and Limited Stocks. It is also “Camera and Autograph Night,” where the fans will have an opportunity to meet drivers and get autographs and take photos.

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 falls.

Kreitz Runs Down 7-second Montieth Lead For .010-second Williams Grove Win

Ott takes URC feature event

6/6/14

Mechanicsburg – Donnie Kreitz turned in a finish for the 410 sprint ages Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway, staging an eye-opening run for victory that saw him erase a more than seven-second lead by Brian Montieth to nip him by .010 seconds at the finish line.

Including bonus and lap monies, Kreitz pocketed well over $4,500 for the regular, 25-lap win, which was the 59th of his Williams Grove career.

Aaron Ott was the winner of the 25-lap URC sprint main, taking over $2,000 for his convincing victory.

Montieth started second and Kreitz seventh in the 410 sprint field and as could have been predicted Montieth took command at the start and went to work running down the rear of the field.

Cory Haas got by Justin Barger for second on the third lap as Kreitz ran sixth.

Montieth was into traffic already on the sixth lap with Kreitz now fifth and as Montieth streaked away by the halfway point, Kreitz was still only up to the fourth position.

However Kreitz continued his forward march and took third with 10 laps to go and then ran down Haas for second with six laps left.

But even by that time, Montieth was nearly still a half lap ahead and Kreitz couldn’t even see him but the Sinking Spring veteran just poured it on during the final two and a half miles as Montieth just beat the top groove into submission.

And that’s how Kreitz ran him down by the finish, with continual bite all the way around the speedway as Montieth scrubbed speed in the middle of the corners while running the cushion.

The finish was that close as the pair came down to the stripe for the final time with Kreitz just to Montieth’s inside at the flagstand that the track scoreboard was made blank until an official determination of who got to the finish first was made.

And after a check of the electronic scoring and timing it was concluded that Kreitz got the win by an amazing .010 seconds as the Montieth fans stood stunned.

“I thought I was passing him for third coming to the line,” Kreitz admitted while seemingly amazed at himself.

“I’m shocked. We’re just so happy to win. Just to get one. That’s too close.”

Montieth ended up second with last week’s winner, Steve Buckwalter in third followed by Haas and Justin Barger.

Sixth through 10th went to Ryan Smith, Greg Hodnett, Rick Lafferty, Lance Dewease and Doug Esh.

Heats for the 28 cars went to Buckwalter, Lafferty and Kreitz.

Glenndon Forsythe led the first three laps fo the URC main before fifth starter Ott got by for the lead.

Mark Smith was the next driver to advance substantially, moving into second on the 11th lap after beginning the race in ninth spot.

Smith had a few clear shots at Ott on restarts but failed to muster any challenges for the win.

A red flag for a six-car pileup on the frontstretch with seven laps to go marred the event but there were no injuries.

Ott was victorious over Smith, Robbie Stillwaggon, Howie Locke and Curt Michael.

Sixth through 10th went to Josh Weller, Glenndon Forsythe, Brock Zearfoss, Davie Franek and Kody Lehman.

Heats for the 34-car URC field went to Chad Trout, Randy West and Zearfoss with Michael taking the consolation.

RAIN FORCES POSTPONEMENT OF LINCOLN USAC EASTERN STORM FEATURE UNTIL 2015

URC 360-358 Super Series consolation and "A" Main to also be made up as part of the 2015 show

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 6/4/2014 – An early evening shower hit the speedway just as the USAC Sprinters were lining up for their 30-lap, $6,000-to-win feature at Lincoln Speedway Wednesday night. After waiting it out two hours, race promoters Bob Miller and Ray Herold and USAC Officials were forced to throw in the towel on the special mid-week show.

Due to contractual obligations with USAC and URC to pay the purse for make-up features to be run at Lincoln next year, the event was considered to be a complete show and rain checks will not be honored.

"Because 50% of the show was completed, we are required to pay the full and complete purses to both USAC and URC, said event co-coordinators Bob Miller and Ray Herold in a joint statement, "With USAC only coming east once per year, the only option is to reschedule the event in 2015. USAC will run a complete show plus the make-up feature. URC will again be part of the program and run two features as well in 2015. We greatly regret the decision."

"We started the show tonight ahead of the scheduled starting time, and moved the show along without delay," said Miller and Herold, "The rain began at 8:50 PM and continue to fall at this time. We apologize and like you, we wish we could have completed the show tonight."

Before the rain arrived, heats for the USAC sprinters were won by Hunter Schuerberg, CJ Leary, and Jon Stanbrough, with Daron Clayton winning the consolation. New wingless track records were set for one lap, 8-laps, and 12-laps.

Fast time in time trials over the 25-car field was set by Dave Darland in a new 1-lap track record time of 15.174-seconds (88.968 MPH). In all, the fastest nine cars broke the existing record.

RESCHEDULED URC GUNN MEMORIAL CHALLENGE FOR 358-360 SPRINT CARS THIS SATURDAY AT SELINSGROVE

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Selinsgrove Speedway will present the rescheduled 34th running of the Jack Gunn Memorial for sprint cars at 7 p.m. this Saturday, June 7, sanctioned by the United Racing Company (URC) and sponsored by PEPSI.

Inclement weather on May 10 forced racing officials to postpone the annual tribute race to the late Hall of Fame promoter until this Saturday. Joining the 358-360 sprint cars on the racing card will be the super late models and pro stocks. Track gates will open at 5 p.m.

For the ninth consecutive year, the Gunn Memorial will feature a 30-lap race between the traveling United Racing Company (URC) 360 sprint cars and the track's weekly A&A Auto Stores 358-360 sprint cars. The race will pay $3,500 to win and $225 to start out of a $15,000-plus purse. Time trials, heats, and a B-Main will be the format for setting the 24-car starting field for the Gunn Memorial.

The tribute race is run each year to honor the memory of the late race track promoter Jack Gunn, who operated Selinsgrove, Williams Grove, Penn National, and Hagerstown Speedways during his career and brought mid-state dirt track racing to national prominence in the 1970's. Gunn was inducted posthumously into the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame (Knoxville, Iowa) in 1990.

Over the years, some of the biggest names in sprint car racing have won the prestigious Jack Gunn Memorial at Selinsgrove Speedway. Lynn Paxton of Dillsburg; Steve Kinser of Bloomington, Ind.; Doug Wolfgang of Sioux Falls, S.D.; and most recently, as 358 sprint car drivers, TJ Stutts of Liverpool; Chad Layton of Harrisburg; Blane Heimbach of Selinsgrove; and Dave Calaman of Carlisle are a few of the past winners of the Gunn Memorial.

The Gunn Memorial became a challenge race between 358 and 360 sprint car drivers beginning in 2006, when Heimbach took the popular victory as well as in the 2008 and 2012 editions of the race. Dave Calaman of Carlisle (2007), Trevor Lewis of Upper Black Eddy (2009, 2010), and Shane Stewart of Indianapolis, Ind. (2011) have also won the Gunn Memorial as a challenge event. JJ Grasso of Pedricktown, N.J., is the defending winner of the race.

Entering this weekend's action, six races have produced three different winners in 358-360 sprint car competition at the track. Mark Smith of Sunbury leads the division with three feature wins, while TJ Stutts of Liverpool scored his second win of the season May 31. Davie Franek of Wantage, N.J., also won a race April 26.

In the late model division, six races have produced five different winners. Jeff Rine of Danville is the only repeat winner to date, while single wins have gone to Steve Campbell of Danville, Jim Yoder of Selinsgrove, Dan Stone of Thompson, and most recently Dave Zona of Montrose.

Selinsgrove Raceway Park will present a program of go karts and micro sprint cars at 7 p.m. Friday, June 6. Track gates will open at 5:30 p.m.

Street Stocks In The Spotlight Saturday At Williams Grove Speedway

Mechanicsburg, PA June 2, 2014

The Williams Grove Speedway Saturday Night Series returns to action this week featuring two 15-lap main events for the Aquafun Pools Street Stocks. Joining the Street Stocks will be the Blazer’s Body Shop Super Sportsman and Credit Connection Auto Sales 358 Late Models.

The Street Stock division does not have a repeat winner. Jeff Haag and Kevin Sigler claimed the first two shows. Last week Greg Diehl topped the 18-car field. Walt Lemmon, Kevin Sigler, Jeff Haag and Doug Hoffman trailed the winner. Haag won the Artwerks Hard Charger award.

The 358 Late Models are equally competitive with no repeat winners. Kyle Lee and Matt Nailor each won their first at the Grove in the opening two events. Last week veteran Jake Jones was in victory lane after defeating Alan Sagi, Gene Knaub, Bobby Beard and Chad Julius. Knaub won the Artwerks Hard Charger money. Nineteen cars were in the pits.

Scott Geesey captured his second Super Sportsman tour win. Geesey, the two previous races, was a victim of racing woes. His car rolled over in the second race and caught on fire a week later. Scott Geesey finished ahead of Rich Eichelberger, Scott Dellinger, Chad Criswell, and Russ Mitten. Geesey was the winner of the Sprint Aces Hard Charger award. Thirty-one cars signed in for the race.

This Saturday the racing begins at 6:30 PM. Adult admission remains at five dollars with children 12 and under free.

 

 

Central PA 358 Point Series presented by Capitol Renegade

The Central PA 358 Point Series presented by Capitol Renegade kicked into high gear this weekend with all 3 tracks hosting the division. Friday night at Trail Way Speedway Jeff Rohrbaugh would find victory lane for the first time in 2014 while at Williams Grove Speedway Brock Zearfoss would dominate the racing action in the John Westbrook 1w for his 1st win of the season. Saturday night at Lincoln Speedway Jeff Rohrbaugh would pull a career first and sweep the weekend by winning the 20 lap feature event at Lincoln Speedway. The CPA358PS leader Kevin Nouse continues to lead after another strong 4th place finish Friday night. He has pulled out to a 86 point over Brad McClelland heading into this weeks races but because of the postponement of the feature last weekend at Lincoln Speedway (which is being run on June 7th) the points from last weekends races have not been added in to the total. Brad won last weekend at Trail Way for his 3rd feature win of the season, so Nouse has his work cut out for him at Lincoln Saturday night to keep his point lead.

Port Royal Speedway The Only Place To See Super Sprints And Super Lates Every Saturday Night

Hodnett, Yoder, Powell, Zimmerman Take Port Royal Mains To End May

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

5/31/14

Port Royal – Greg Hodnett of Thomasville wired the field for the 25-lap 410 sprint car feature at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night while the stock cars staged exciting racing in the 355 econo late model, xtreme stock and all american outlaw divisions.

Andrew Yoder of Middleburg overcame from the ninth starting spot to continue his strangle hold on the econo late model division, now having scored all three of the mains contested for the class to date.

In the xtreme stocks Bill Powell exchanged the lead with Bob Bussey over the final five laps to come out on top at the finish.

In the all american outlaws main Kurt Zimmerman came forward from the ninth spot to take the checkers.

Hodnett drew the pole for the start of the 410 sprint car feature and set sail on the field when the green flag unfurled.

He entered the backmarkers on the fifth circuit chased by Curt Stroup and Dave Ely.

Meanwhile, having started ninth in the field, Blane Heimbach was blistering around the bottom groove of the track to be sitting in third when the red flag came out with nine laps scored for a crash by Doug Esh and Logan Wagner.

The pair was battling for the fourth spot when they collided and flipped in the fourth turn, escaping injury.

Hodnett had four lapped cars as a buffer between himself and Stroup for the restart and when action resumed he picked up his previous pace at the front.

Mike Wagner got by Heimbach and Stroup in one outside swoop on the 11th tour but then began fading as Heimbach took third on lap 12 and then overtook Wagner for second with 12 laps to go.

By that time Hodnett had a half track lead on Heimbach but with the final 16 laps going non stop to the finish Heimbach had to settle for second at the end, some 4.492 seconds behind the winner after driving down the margin to a straightaway at the finish.

Wagner was third followed by 10th starter Rick Lafferty and Dave Ely.

Sixth through 10th went to Ryan Taylor, Mike Erdley, Nate Snyder, Steve Buckwalter and Chad Layton.

Heats for the 26-car field went to Dave Hahn, Ely and Wagner with Brock Zearfoss taking the consolation race.

Polesitter Tim Krape led the first seven laps of the 15-lap econo late model feature before succumbing to the pressure of Eric Irvin.

Irvin drove into the lead just before the caution flag came out with nine away.

Yoder was up to third for the restart and got by Krape at the new green before closing in on Irvin.

Then another caution bunched the field with four laps to go at which time Yoder first drove into control only to see Irvin battle back in the third corner to pull the field back to the stripe with three to go.

But then with two to go in the event Yoder took the lead again and this time he wouldn’t relinquish it.

Irvin ended up 1.156 seconds behind in second followed by Todd Snook, Krape and Bill Henney.

Sixth through 10th went to Devin Hart, Lloyd Hockenberry, Lucas Bryner, Troy Miller and Danny Sollers.

Twin heats went to Troy Miller and Snook. ‘

The xtreme stock main saw Bill Powell lead from the pole in the 15-lapper only to find the yellow flag unfurling with four laps down for a tangle that took out the second, third and fourth place cars.

That advanced Bob Bussey into second after starting seventh and Bussey hounded Powell for the balance of the race, taking the lead on the eighth tour only to then be hounded by Powell.

The all time win leader in the division, Powell pressured to regain the lead and slipped by with one lap to go to end up taking the hard fought victory.

Bussey was second followed by Darian Trego, Mike Goodwin and Tyler Amtower.

Polesitter Bryan Green led until the seventh lap of the 20-lap all american outlaws main when ninth starter Kurt Zimmerman of Pasadena, Md., took a lead he wouldn’t surrender to the finish although the front four cars raced together under a blanket all the way to the end.

Green held second to the end after losing the lead while Dylan Keim took third with Randy Doty fourth and Jim Chenoweth finishing in fifth.

Twin heats went to Zimmerman and Doty.

AUSTIN HOGUE SCORES FIRST CAREER 410 SPRINT CAR WIN; MONTIETH CLAIMS HILLY RIFE MEMORIAL; ROHRBAUGH COMPLETES FIRST CAREER TWO-WIN WEEKEND IN 358 SPRINTS;

Kevin Thomas 4-cylinder stock car winner

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 5/31/2014 – Rookie Austin Hogue ran a great race and got a late-race break to score his first career win in the Delco Designs Night 410 sprint car feature at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

“When it’s you day, it’s your day,” said Hogue upon exiting the family BAPS Auto Paints and Supply/Livingston Lawn Care/Zirkle’s Garage #52 in victory lane, “I’m sure Danny (Dietrich) was all over me the whole time. It basically got rubber-down and I should have just stuck with it, but I tried to get greedy and get by Billy (Dietrich) in the middle and I lost it off turn two. The Lord was looking after me today, because the yellow came out and I was back in front. I won’t do that again.”

The mistake Hogue was referring to was an attempt to drive around Billy Dietrich while Danny Dietrich was closing in. Dietrich, who started tenth, drove under both his brother and Hogue to take lead, only to have pass negated by a caution flag for third-place Aaron Ott, who spun at the entrance to turn three.

“I’m shaking, I can’t believe it! This is just amazing!” said Hogue, “We struggled here all year, but this is my favorite track. It’s a taken a while to get a hold of it with the 410. This was like a 358 track tonight, and it was nice to get on a track I’m used to.”

“It’s a whole ‘nother world with these 410 sprints,” continued Hogue, “Everybody is so close, and anytime you’re off, it makes it really tough to stay with the guys that have been doing this as long as I’ve been alive.”

Dietrich settled for second, with Tyler Ross (another Lincoln 410 rookie), Robbie Kendall, and Brian Montieth rounding out the top five. Sixth through tenth were Adam Wilt, Ryan Wilson, Gerard McIntyre, Jr., Ryan Bohlke, and Freddie Rahmer.

Wilson started on the pole and led the first 12 laps before sixth-starting Hogue took over. The race went non-stop until Ott’s spin on lap 24, setting up the two-lap dash to the checkered.

Heats for the 34 sprinters were won by Kendall, Hogue, McIntyre, and Freddie Rahmer, with Jim Siegel winning the consolation.

Brian Montieth shook off a personal and team dry spell in claiming the 30-lap, $5,000-to-win Hilly Rife Memorial make-up feature earlier in the evening. Montieth started fifth and grabbed the race lead from polesitter and race-long leader Ryan Bohlke in heavy lapped traffic on the 17th lap. He drove away to a three-second win over Steve Owings to score his 42nd career Lincoln win, but his first of the season in the Pigeon Hills.

Bohlke crossed third, followed by McIntyre and 13th-starting Danny Dietrich.

Jeff Rohrbaugh started on the pole and brought another Delco Designs car to victory lane after leading every lap to cap off a career-first two-win weekend in the 358 sprint car feature. The final margin of victory in Rohrbaugh’s tenth career Lincoln win was 1.25 seconds.

Doug Hammaker ran second to Rohrbaugh the entire race, with 11th-starting Niki Young, Chandler Leiby, and Chase Dietz completing the top five.

Heats for the 29 358 sprinters were won by Matt Campbell, Jordon Givler, and Young, with Ashley Cappetta winning the consolation.

Kevin Thomas of St. Thomas claimed his first career Lincoln win in his final year of racing in the 4-cylinder stock car feature. Thomas won the first heat and drew a zero pill for the inversion, placing him on the pole for the event.

He led every lap, crossing 2.5 seconds ahead of Frankie Gordon, with Chris Anderson, Gary Newell, and Jeremy Ott finishing third through fifth.

Heats for the 24 4-Cylinder Stocks were won by Thomas, Shane Sixeas, and Ott.

Lincoln swings back into action with a special mid-week show on Wednesday, June 4th, featuring the second stop on USAC’s annual Eastern Storm swing.

FLYING WINGLESS THURSDAY NIGHT, JUNE 5 AT NEW EGYPT SPEEDWAY AMSOILS NON-WING USAC NATIONAL SPRINT TOUR TO MAKE ONLY NEW JERSEY APPEARANCE THURSDAY NIGHT, JUNE 5

USAC, rich in history in the state of New Jersey, has been absent in recent years, that is until 2010 when USAC returned to New Jersey after thirty-two years. It was June of 1978 when legendary Tom Bigelow won that event at the Flemington Fair Speedway. USAC made their first appearance at New Egypt in 2010, returned in 2011 and 2012 then missed in 2013. Special events promoter Bob Miller organized that historic return of USAC in 2010.

But have no fear, USAC is back in 2014. New Egypt Speedway will be “Flying Wingless” on Thursday night, June 5 when the AMSOIL USAC National Non-Wing Sprints team up with the ARDC Non-Wing Midgets in an open wheel double-header. Previous USAC winners at New Egypt Speedway include Levi Jones in 2010, Hunter Schuerenberg in 2011 and Bryan Clauson was the winner in 2012.

The nation’s best non-wing sprint car drivers will be in the mix. Drivers like Jarrett Andretti of Indianapolis, IN, Shane Cottle of Kokomo, IN, the “ Modern Day Cowboy” Daron Clayton of Sikeston, MO, Dave Darland, Lincoln, IN, Tracy Hines of New Castle, IN, Kevin Thomas, Jr. of Cullman, AL, Robert Ballou of Rocklin, CA, Nathan Moore of Tyler, TX, Chad Boespflug of Hanford, CA and Brady Bacon of Broken Arrow, OK are some of the expected entries. Look for ARDC defending champion Trevor Kobylarz of Birdsboro, PA to do double-duty and watch for some other locals to include Billy Pauch Jr, Mark Bitner of Trenton, NJ and Central PA driver Mark Smith.

ARDC driver roster will include Alex Bright, Bruce Buckwalter Jr., Brenden Bright, Steven Drevicki, Kyle Lick, PJ Gargiulo, defending champion Trevor Kobylarz, Ryan Greth, Nick Wean and Billy Pauch Jr to name a few.

The USAC Non-Wing sprints will compete in time trials, a series of qualifying events all leading up to a 30 lap feature. For the ARDC Midgets, they will compete in a heat races and a 25 lap feature.

MACH 1 CHASSIS presents. . . . . FIRST TIME EVER. . . . . USAC NON-WING SPRINTS & URC 360 SPRINTS TOGETHER AT LINCOLN SPEEDWAY ON WEDNESDAY NIGHT, JUNE 4 7:30 PM

On this very special night in the “pigeon hills”, the two oldest traveling sprint car organizations will come together for a spectacular double header racing program of non-wing and winged sprint car racing at the Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, PA on Wednesday night, June 4. This first in a lifetime event is presented by MACH 1 Chassis and will get underway at 7:30 PM.

After a two year absence, the Amsoil USAC Non-Wing Sprint Cars return to the famed Lincoln Speedway in what will be the second stop of their eighth annual Eastern Storm tour. In the last AMSOIL USAC Sprint Car event at Lincoln Speedway, Levi Jones, who retired from racing in June 2013, held off a late race charge by Bryan Clauson to claim the victory. Wednesday night, June 4 on the 3/8 mile dirt oval, Clauson, Brady Bacon, Dave Darland, Tracy Hines ,Jarrett Andretti, Mark Smith and a host of other non-wing hot shoes will do battle in a 30-lap main paying $6,000 to win.

The exciting two-division show also includes the Rislone URC Sprint Cars in a 360/358 Super Series contest. The stars of the URC traveling series will be joined by many of the top wheelmen from the 358 Sprint Car circuit in Central Pennsylvania for a 25-lap feature, paying $2,200 to win. Curt Michael, URC’s eight time champion is a previous feature winner in a 410 sprint at Lincoln, so he’s expected to be a top contender for the win along with Josh Weller, Robbie Stillwaggon, Davie Franek, Ed Aikin along with Mark Smith and his MACH 1 Chassis expected to do double duty. 358 drivers with interest in running the event include Kevin Nouse, Matt Campbell, Jay Galloway, Cody Fletcher, Doug Hammaker, Niki Young, Tyler Ross, Zach Eucalano, Ryan Wilson and Mark Strickler to name a few.

The USAC organization was founded in 1955 by Indianapolis Motor Speedway owner Tony Hulman after the (AAA) American Automobile Association withdrew from auto racing. The USAC history as an open-wheel sanctioning body continues today as drivers like Jeff Gordon, Tony Stewart, Kasey Kahne, Kyle Larson, Ricky Stenhouse Jr., and Cole Whitt honed their skills and captured championships while competing in various USAC series.

URC, now presenting their sixty-seventh season of auto racing, remains the nation’s oldest traveling sprint car organization. URC, sponsored by Rislone is a regional organization, competing mainly in the Northeast. They do travel as far south as the Carolina’s and have competed in Canada. URC did compete a few times at the Knoxville, IA Speedway. URC competes as a 360 sprint car organization and races with wings. Curt Michael of Ocean View, DE is an eight time URC Champion and a winner of forty-seven career victories. The top winning drivers in URC history include Glenn Fitzcharles (81), Dave Kelly (76), Kramer Williamson (67), Buck Buckley (60), Curt Michael and Greg Coverdale (47 wins).

On Wednesday, June 4, all gates open at 5:00 PM with racing getting underway at 7:30 PM. Grandstand admission is $25 for adults , $20 for Students 12 -17, $10 for children 6-11 and children under the age of 6 will be admitted free. The pit fee will be $30 and a pit license will not be required.

Lincoln Speedway is a very popular and "fan friendly" track in the tri-state area, offering great unobstructed viewing from every seat in the grandstands. The infield is open for watching the races by entering through the fourth turn tunnel. The slightly elevated asphalt pits have great lighting which allows the fans to watch all of the pit action as well. The three-eighth mile Lincoln Speedway offers it all, the high speeds that you would see at the "big tracks" with the flair and excitement of the short track "bull rings".

NAPA AUTO PARTS THUNDER ON THE HILL CONTINUES WITH JESSE HOCKETT CLASSIC presented by WINDOW WORLD THE SHOW OF ALL SHOW’S. . . .TAKE OFF THE WINGS, STAND ON THE THROTTLE, HERE THEY COME. . .USAC NON-WING SPRINTS AT GRANDVIEW TUESDAY JUNE 3RD

If you have never seen a non-wing sprint car race, you don’t know what you’re missing.

So plan to be at the Grandview Speedway Tuesday night, June 3 when the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series continues with the Jesse Hockett Classic for the USAC non-wing sprint cars and ARDC non-wing midgets presented by Window World. Race time is 7:30 PM.

The nation’s best non-wing sprint car drivers from around the county will gather on the “hill” Tuesday night. Drivers like Jarrett Andretti of Indianapolis, IN, Shane Cottle of Kokomo, IN, the “ Modern Day Cowboy” Daron Clayton of Sikeston, MO, Dave Darland, Lincoln, IN, Tracy Hines of New Castle, IN, Kevin Thomas, Jr. of Cullman, AL, Robert Ballou of Rocklin, CA, Nathan Moore of Tyler, TX, Chad Boespflug of Hanford, CA and Brady Bacon of Broken Arrow, OK are some of the expected entries. Look for ARDC defending champion Trevor Kobylarz of Birdsboro, PA to make his initial non-wing sprint car outing at Grandview and some other locals to include Billy Pauch Jr and Central PA driver Mark Smith.

Non-wing sprint car racing is not for the “faint of heart”. This is as extreme as dirt track racing gets.

In many forms of racing, time trials can be a yawner, but not when the USAC cars take to Grandview Speedway. Some say, USAC time trials along are worth the price of admission. Well, have no fear, there is much more to the show then just time trials.

These non-wing sprint car drivers use the outside boiler-plate as a way to slow down. There is always wheel rubbing, countless slide-jobs and racing in a pack is just the norm. In the 2013 running of the Jesse Hockett Classic, Daron Clayton did it all to win the $6,000 first place prize. In a three car battle for the win, Clayton, Levi Jones and Bryan Clauson were on the inside berm, glazing the boiler-plate and offered a three car battle for the lead for the final fifteen laps. Daron Clayton may have failed trying to move the outside boiler-plate at Grandview, but he did win the prestigious event.

Gates will open at 5 PM and for advance ticket holders, you may enter the grandstands at 4:30 PM. Warm-ups will begin at 6:45 with time trials getting underway at 7:30 PM. USAC time trials, heat races and the 40 lap Jesse Hockett Classic are on the program along with the ARDC non-wing midgets, competing in a series of heat races all leading up to a 25 lap feature event. On May 25 at Grandview, ARDC put on the best show of the night, with Alex Bright taking the win in the non-stop 25 lap feature with Bright starting twenty-first. . . It was an awesome race!

The popular pre-race pit tours introduced at the May 25 Thunder on the Hill event will be offered on Tuesday night as well as the Inside/Out Promotion where fans may watch the warm-ups from inside turn four. What a treat with USAC on the hill.

ROHRBAUGH WINS FIRST TIME OUT IN TRAIL-WAY 358’S;

Hanover, PA (05/3014) –It didn’t take Jeff Rohrbaugh long to find victory lane at Trail-Way Speedway.

Making his first Trail-Way start of the season, Rohrbaugh drew the pole and led every lap of the 25-lap “358” sprint car feature.

“You’re the tenth person that told me you were glad to see me, so there are at least ten liars here tonight!” quipped Rohrbaugh to track announcer Scott Hockensmith upon exiting his Travis Racing Engines/Brother’s Pizza #45 in victory lane.

“We weren’t planning to run here this year, but we missed some races and wanted to give our sponsors some exposure,” said Rohrbaugh, “We’re going to pick up some races, so hopefully we’ll be back here.”

Though he led every lap, Rohrbaugh received pressure from both Robbie Kendall and Brad McClelland during the race. First it was Kendall, who started fifth and assumed second when Dwight Leppo and Cody Fletcher made contact and spun on the backstretch of the first lap. Leppo chased Rohrbaugh for 14 laps before ninth-starting McClelland caught Kendall for second on lap 15.

But four laps later, McClelland dropped off the pace with motor problems, brought out the caution, and went to the pits, handing second back over to Kendall.

“I got a little lazy there and had the wing too far back,” said Rohrbaugh, “It’s good we got a caution so I could move the wing up. I don’t know if I would have passed anyone, but they didn’t pass me, either.”

Randy Whisler, Seth Kearchner, and Denny Gross completed the top five.

Rohrbaugh also won the lone qualifier for the nine sprint cars on hand.

Lady driver Hannah Riser drove to her second career Trail-Way win in the 600cc micro-sprint feature. She started on the pole and also led every lap, but had to withstand heavy late-race pressure from 17th-starting Tyler Walton, who actually pushed her across the finish line.

Walton missed his qualifying event with his car torn down, and put on the show of the night in advancing to second at the end. Third through fifth were 12th-starting Brad Weber, Timmie Barrick, and David Holbrook.

Heats for the 18 micros were won by Jeremy Glass and Shawn Seifert.

Blaine Leppo came from sixth starting spot to win the 20-lap Central PA Legend feature.

Chris McKinney led the first eight laps from the pole, but dropped from the field while leading during a ninth-lap caution. Jacob Feltch assumed the lead for the next six laps before Leppo wrestled the lead in a multi-car battle for the top spot.

Leppo led the rest of the way, with Bill Diehl, Feltch, and Lucas Montgomery completing the top five.

Qualifiers for the 24 Central PA Legends cars were won by Leppo and Bob Stough.

Matt Chronister scored his third win of the year in the 15-lap championship event for the limited stocks. Chronister drew the pole and was never headed.

Cory Weishaar, Ricky Weaver, Jr., Tom Senseney, Jr., and Robbie Carroll rounded out the top five.

Heats for the 18 limited stocks were won by Ricky Weaver, Jr. and Rob Nicklow.

Next Friday (6/6), Trail-Way will host the 358 Sprint Cars, Limited Stocks, Street Stocks, and 270cc Micro Sprints. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. and racing begins at 7:30 p.m.

Friday June 13, Trail-Way will host the 358 Late Models sponsored by Precise Racing Products. Also on the schedule are the 358 Sprint Cars, 600cc Micro Sprints, and Limited Stocks. It is also Camera and Autograph night where the fans will have an opportunity to meet drivers and get autographs and take photos.

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 falls.

Buckwalter And Zearfoss Wire For Williams Grove Sprint Wins

5/30/14

Mechanicsburg – Steve Buckwalter and Brock Zearfoss wired the sprint car fields for the paydays at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, taking the 410 sprint and the 358 sprint feature events, respectively.

The start of the 410 sprint main got off to a rocky start when the red flag unfurled on the opening lap as the field roared down the frontchute only to find Chad Layton catapulting past the flag stand after starting 19th.

Layton escaped injury although portions of the front end of his car were lodged in the frontstretch retaining fence.

Buckwalter rode the second starting spot into the lead when action resumed with Cory Haas racing second.

Fourth starter Brian Montieth moved into third at the start and the top three were still in that order when the caution flag unfurled with 12 laps down in the 25-lap feature.

Montieth finally muscled by Haas for second with 10 laps to go but watched as his victory hopes went down the drain on the 19th lap when he withdrew from the event with motor problems.

That put generous distance between Buckwalter and his next closest pursuer Haas that locked up Buckwalter’s sixth career victory at the track worth $3,600 plus $250 in lap money.

After starting 12th, Greg Hodnett rode home third followed by Don Kreitz Jr. and Ryan Wilson.

Kreitz took over the season point lead in an unofficial tally following the event.

Sixth through 10th went to Austin Hogue, Lance Dewease, Doug Esh, Gerard McIntyre Jr. and Alan Krimes.

Heats for the 23 car field went to Kreitz, Krimes and Rick Lafferty.

Zearfoss started fourth in the 20-lap 358 sprint feature and drove alongside DJ Montgomery at the stripe to lead the first lap narrowly.

The Jonestown driver withstood four restarts with Montgomery in second to pick up his second career divison win at the oval by a straightaway margin.

Fifth starter Kody Lehman advanced during the race to end up second with Doug Hammaker finishing third.

Kevin Nouse was fourth and Montgomery faded to fifth at the finish.

Sixth through 10th went to Scott Fisher, Matt Campbell, Jay Galloway, Adrian Shaffer and Chandler Leiby.

Heats for the 19 cars went to Brie Hershey and Phil Walter.

Chad Trout, Matt Nailor, and Kevin Sigler Win Williams Grove Speedway Saturday Features

Mechanicsburg, PA May 25, 2014

With lightening slicing through the skies, Chad Trout stormed to the victory in the Williams Grove Speedway Bill Heckert Memorial Super Sportsman 25-lap championship. Trout had a thrilling battle with Frankie Herr on the way to his second Blazer’s Body Shop Super Sportsman tour triumph.

Kenny Edkin, from his second starting position, was the immediate leader. Chad Trout started fourth and was second by the completion of the opening lap. The battle for the lead became a three-car fight between Edkin, Trout and Scott Geesey,

The race came to a halt on lap five when Rich Eichelberger’s car rolled over in turn two. Moments later there was a fire in Scott Geesey’s car. Geesey received a minor burn to his ankle while Rich Eichelberger, after a pit stop, returned to the race.

Edkin, following the restart, led the way with Frankie Herr in second and Geesey was third. Herr, after a lap nine caution, became the new leader. One lap later Trout took possession of second.

Herr’s lead slowly disappeared and by lap 16 Trout was three-lengths behind. One lap later, using slower traffic, Trout passed Herr in turns three and four. Trout masterfully drove through slower traffic. The Felton, PA driver won by 15 lengths over Herr, Gregg Foster, Mike Enders, and Chad Criswell.

Williams Grove Speedway’s technical crew began a brand new inspection policy with this race. Chad Trout’s machine went to the new technical inspection building for an engine check. The car passed the inspection.

Enders, Steve Wilbur, and Herr won the preliminaries for the 28-car field. Eichelberger was the consolation victor. Russ Mitten won the Sprint Aces Hard Charger Award.

Matt Nailor started first in the 20 lap Credit Connection Auto Sales 358 Late Model main. Nailor led the way with Dan Zechman, Sam Rial, Travis Mease, and Roy Miller trailing.

The top five remained the same through the first six laps. On lap seven rain began creating a caution. After a short wait the racing resumed with Nailor leading.

There was a shuffling of positions behind the leader. Travis Mease advanced into second with Dan Zechman, Roy Miller, Sam Rial and Scott Richwine in a battle for third. Nailor had a 20-length advantage when the caution came out on lap 15 for a tangle between Miller and Richwine.

Alan Sagi made a big move on the restart, the veteran driver charging into second. Nailor, from Shermansdale, led the remaining laps to win his first feature by ten lengths over Sagi. Zechman was third, with Wes Alleman finishing fourth and Mease was fifth.

The heat wins for the 23 cars went to Pat Beard, Sagi, Chad Julius. Shaun Jones was the winner of the Artwerks Hard Charger Award.

The 15-lap Aquafun Pools Street Stock feature began with a massive front stretch crash. Fifteen of the 21 starters were in the melee.

Kevin Sigler started on the outside of the front row and sprinted into the lead. Charlie Pensinger’s new car had a spectacular front stretch flip on the second circuit. Pensinger walked away from the crash.

Sigler, a York resident, continued to lead the way. Nick Bloom, Mike Buckley, and Doug Hoffman had a spirited contest for second. Buckley captured second in the sixth lap and was trailing the leader by four lengths.

There was a caution with four laps remaining. Sigler’s Camaro led with Buckley, Hoffman, Jeff Haag, Steve Hastings and Craig Morgan in close pursuit. Kevin Sigler won his first of 2014 by five lengths over Buckley, Hoffman, Haag, and Hastings.

Sigler and Hoffman were the heat winners for the 21 entries. Mike Nickel, making his first start, won the Artwerks Hard Charger Award.

The Williams Grove Speedway Saturday Night Series returns to action this weekend. The Blazer’s Body Shop Super Sportsman, Credit Connection Auto Sales 358 late Models, and Aquafun Pools Street Stocks will headline the show. Racing begins at 6:30.

RAIN WIPES OUT LINCOLN FEATURES AFTER ALL QUALIFYING COMPLETE;

Make-up feature dates set, with 410 Sprint Car feature to be run next Saturday, May 31st

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 5/24/2014 – Rain storms which narrowly missed Lincoln Speedway several times Saturday night finally hit the speedway as the cars were being summoned for the 410 sprint car feature, forcing promoters to postpone the three feature events to future racing programs.

Rain arrived in the Pigeon Hills a few minutes before 10:00 p.m. Track preparer Fred Putney and his crew went to work, but 11:50 p.m. hot laps by the two sprint divisions confirmed that the track was too narrow. When the drivers told the promoters that they felt it was unsafe, promoters decided to postpone the three features.

It turned out to be the right decision, as rain hit the speedway again shortly after the postponement was announced.

The first make-up feature will be for the 410 sprinters as part of Delco Designs Night this coming Saturday, May 31st.

The 358 sprint car feature will be made up on Saturday, June 7th, as part of the annual Daryl Gohn/Glenn Gohn, Sr. Memorial.

The Central PA Legends feature will be made up the next time the Legends are at Lincoln on BAPS Night Saturday, June 21st.

Before the rains came, heats for the 410 sprinters were won by Brian Montieth, Freddie Rahmer, and Ryan Bohlke, with Glenndon Forsythe winning the consolation. Fast time in time trials over the 29-car field was set by Gerard McIntyre, Jr. with a one-lap time of 13.066-seconds (103.322 MPH).

Heats for the 31 358 sprinters were won by Tyler Esh, Chase Dietz, and Kevin Nouse, with Jeff Rohrbaugh winning the consolation.

Heats for the 28 Legends were won by Chris Spidle, Lucas Montgomery, and Bob Stough, with Vern Houseman winning the consolation.

Next Saturday, Lincoln will host Delco Designs Night featuring a double-feature for the 410 sprints, 358 sprints, and 4-cylinder stock cars. Racing will begin at 7:30 p.m., with gates opening at 5:30 p.m.

Smith Gives Rahmer First Williams Grove Win As Car Owner, Parker Gets PASS 305s

5/23/14

Mechanicsburg – Stevie Smith gave Fred Rahmer his first win as a car owner at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, scoring for the first time in track history for the retired racer turned sprint car owner.

Smith led 24 of 25-laps of the main event to pocket the $4,000 payday, which was the 26th win of his career at the oval.

In the PASS 305 sprint series it was Eric Parker who took the win, holding off Mark Watkins for the victory.

Smith started second in the 410-sprint feature field and took the lead from Gerard McIntyre Jr. on the second lap to gain control.

During the first few laps, sixth starter Lance Dewease made quick moves to the front to be running third as Smith took command.

Dewease got by McIntyre for second on the third circuit and fifth starter Don Kreitz Jr. advanced to third place a lap later.

The pair of Dewease and Kreitz was trying to run down the leader when the races only caution unfurled on the eighth tour for a stopped Brock Zearfoss.

Dewease took a shot at Smith on the restart but Smith led back to the line only to then have Kreitz get by Dewease for position on the 11th tour.

Kreitz then began biting into Smith’s lead as the race reached the halfway point but as soon as Kreitz showed Smith the bottom lane in the first and second corners Smith then changed lanes to the bottom and that served to protect his lead and win.

Smith was able to easily stay ahead of Kreitz the rest of the distance.

“It’s so nice to be able to win races again,” Smith said.

“I think this is the best idea Fred’s ever came up with,” he said of Rahmer’s idea to put him in a car for the 2014 season.

“It’s just a really good opportunity and I’m just happy to be a part of it.”

Rahmer talked about his choice of Smith for a driver.

“Puttin’ Stevie in was a no brainer,” Rahmer commented.

“I knew there was no other choice.”

“I don’t miss drivin’ at all.”

McCLELLAND SCORES THIRD WIN IN TRAIL-WAY 358 SPRINTS; SALONY & ZIELONIS TAKE SIDEWINDER MICRO-SPRINT FEATURES; TOM SENSENEY CLAIMS LIMITED STOCK MAIN; JEREMY STREMMEL STREET STOCK WINNER

Hanover, PA (05/23/14) – Brad McClelland added another notch to his belt in the “358” sprint car feature at Trail-Way Speedway Friday night. “The track was a little weird tonight, and I’m glad I started up front,” said McClelland upon exiting the Baird Heating & Cooling/Littlestown Auto Care/Rucker Computer Solutions #6R in victory lane, “We put a used tire on tonight because we were starting second. That was a mistake.” That was his only mistake, as McClelland won his heat and led every lap of the feature from his outside front row starting spot. McClelland was never seriously challenged despite six caution flags over the first nine laps. From there, the race went non-stop, with McClelland scoring his third win in five races so far this year. Matt Campbell caught polesitter Seth Kearchner for second lap 15, and was closing at the end. Robbie Kendall, Kearchner, and Cody Fletcher completed the top five. The other qualifier for the 10 “358” sprinters was won by Kendall.

Reed Salony and Mike Zielonis were winners of the double 15-lap1000cc Sidewinder micro-sprint features. Salony actually finished third in the opener, but was credited with the win when apparent winner Jim Young and second-place finisher Brad Weber both failed post-race inspections. Brandon Yarlett and Rich Halter were awarded second and third in the first feature. In the second Sidewinder feature, Zielonis started on the pole and led every lap. Closing rapidly at the end was Salony, who ended up with a first and second on the night. Completing the top three in the second feature was Yarlett.

Tom Senseney came from tenth starting spot to claim the win in the 15-lap limited stock feature. Senseney drove under Robbie Carroll for the lead with a low move in turn four of lap 14. Carroll, who started third, led laps three through 13. With the win, Senseney moved into a first-place tie with Matt Chronister (262 points) in the season-long point series. Chronister dropped to the infield while running fourth on lap 11. Second through fifth were Carroll, Cody Klinedinst, Shannon Weaver, and Terry Hartlaub. Heats for the 21 limited stocks were won by Kory Shorb and Kenny Startzman.

Jeremy Stremmel scored the win in the 20-lap street stock feature. Stremmel started on the outside of the front row and led every lap but one. Previous winner Dan Furman started 12th and passed Stremmel for the lead on lap 13, only to suffer a flat tire and slow to a stop on lap 14. Stremmel assumed the lead for the restart and led the rest of the way, with Larry Landis coming from eighth to finish second. Third through fifth were Chad Stine, Pat McClane, and Jed Latshaw. Furman’s teammate Craig Wagaman also suffered a flat tire while running fourth on lap seven and came to a stop in turn two of lap nine, ending his night. Qualifiers for the 15 street stocks were won by Stremmel and Wagaman.

Next Friday (5/30), Trail-Way Speedway will host the Limited Stock Championship race. Also on the schedule are the 358 Sprints, Central PA Legends and 600cc Micro Sprints. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. and racing begins at 7:30 p.m.

SMITH CAPTURES ESS 360 SPRINT CAR RACE

Selinsgrove, PA — (May 18, 2014) — Mark Smith powered to a convincing win in Saturday night’s 25-lap Mach 1 Chassis Empire Super Sprint (ESS) 360 sprint car feature over defending champion Jason Shultz of Carlisle. The $3,000 win was Smith’s third of the season and eighth career in 358-360 sprint car competition at the track.

The race was marred by a serious crash on lap three involving three drivers at the end of the backstretch. Duane Mausteller of Bloomsburg and Jamie Collard of Burford, Ont., were transported to the Geisinger Medical Center in Danville with undisclosed injuries. Also involved in the incident was Shawn Donath of South Onondaga, N.Y., who escaped injury.

Jeff Rine of Danville returned to Victory Lane for his second win of the season in the 25-lap late model feature. The win also marked Rine’s second of the weekend, having picked up the win Friday night at the Bedford Speedway, and 87th career at Selinsgrove.

Kyle Bachman of Selinsgrove drove to his first win of the season in the 15-lap pro stock feature, while defending champion Brian Johnson of Ashland won his second 12-lap roadrunner race.

The next race at Selinsgrove Speedway will be the Ray Tilley Classic for 410 sprint cars at 7 p.m. Sunday, May 25. The super sportsman and 305 sprint cars will join the 410 sprint cars for the open wheel tripleheader. Track gates will open at 5 p.m.

Outside front row starter TJ Stutts took the lead at the start of the sprint car feature and was chased by fourth-place starter Cody Keller. The race was halted on the third circuit for a backstretch crash involving eighth-place starter Jamie Collard, 10th-place starter Shawn Donath, and 18th-place starter Duane Mausteller. Mausteller was air-lifted to the Geisinger Medical Center in Danville and Collard was transported by ambulance with undisclosed injuries. Donath was not injured in the crash.

When the race resumed, Stutts continued to lead over Keller, seventh-place starter Mark Smith, 12th-place starter Pat Cannon, and sixth-place starter Jason Barney. On a lap 10 restart, Smith and Cannon drove by Keller for the second and third positions. Stutts and Smith then dueled for the lead only to make contact on the frontstretch, which sent Stutts into a wild spin into the first turn.

On the lap 12 retart, 14th-place starter Jason Shultz showed a lot of speed and stormed into second. Shultz and Cannon then dueled for the position while Keller remained a close fourth. With five laps remaining, Keller took third away from Cannon. At the finish, Smith was victorious by 2.2 seconds over Shultz, Keller, Cannon, and 17th-place starter Steve Poirier. Second-place starter Dave Zona powered into the lead at the start of the late model feature over polesitter Tim Wilson and sixth-place starter Jim Bernheisel. On the fourth circuit, seventh-place starter Jeff Rine advanced to the fourth position.

The caution flag unfurled on lap nine when Jim Yoder’s car rolled to a stop in turn four. On the lap 10 restart, Bernheisel passed Wilson for the runner up spot. Wilson, however, stopped in turn two on the next lap. A multi-car pileup unfolded in turn four on lap 12; all drivers escaped injury. Then Bernheisel dropped out of the race on the restart.

With 10 laps to go, Zona was leading Rine, ninth-place starter Bryan Bernheisel, and 10th-place starter Andy Haus. Rine made the winning pass using the outside lane coming off turn on the 18th lap. He went on to win the race by five seconds over Zona, B. Bernheisel, Haus, and 11th-place starter Steve Campbell.

Polesitter Kyle Bachman wired the field for his first win of the season in the pro stock feature. Bachman was chased by second-place starter Jake Buck and third-place starter Adam Campbell. Campbell took over second for several laps. The race saw a caution flag on lap five when Nathan Long’s car rolled to a stop.

When the race resumed, Bachman stretched his lead over the field. In the final laps of the race, three-time winner and 11th-place starter Brad Mitch made a last-ditch effort to catch Bachman and keep his winning streak alive. At the finish, Bachman was victorious by 2.6 seconds over Mitch, Campbell, Buck, and Andrew Shoop.

Polesitter Brandon Shultz led the first two laps of the roadrunner feature. Sixth-place starter John Fowler Jr. took over the lead on lap three and also led for two laps. Eighth-place starter Keith Bissinger kept his racer at the front of the pack through lap eight, when fifth-place starter Brian Johnson made the winning pass. Johnson was victorious over Bissinger, Fowler, Butch Shaffer, and Ed Capper.

Daryn Pittman Completes Two-Day Outlaws Sweep At Williams Grove Speedway,

Pushes combined two-day total to $25,000 for KKR team

5/17/14

Mechanicsburg – Daryn Pittman of Owasso, Okla., put together a two-day sweep of World of Outlaws sprint car action at Williams Grove Speedway on Saturday night, wiring the field for the second night in a row at the track to record victory.

His win on Friday was worth $8,000 but his Saturday triumph was worth $17,000 in total, boosting his two-day total to a cool $25,000.

Pittman earned the pole by winning the dash and was flanked by Don Kreitz Jr. for the start of the 30-lap main. Donny Schatz and Lucas Wolfe lined up in the second row.

And the race would be settled between, Pittman, Kreitz and Wolfe as the case would be with the duo of Kreitz and Wolfe dueling for second repeatedly during the mid stages as Pittman edged out to just enough of a lead as the pair scrapped.

Kreitz gave close chase of Pittman when action got started and as it would turn out the race would go nonstop to the finish.

Pittman took a page out of Kreitz’s book from the start when he glued himself to the inside groove as Wolfe thrusted around the outside cushion.

Wolfe pushed his Zemco No. 1 into second for the first time with nine laps away and it was then that Pittman would feel the most pressure for control.

On two different occasions Wolfe drew directly up on Pittmans bumper as the pair crossed underneath the historic backstretch bridge but both times Wolfe fell just short of pulling the trigger for the lead.

Kreitz came back on Wolfe for second on the 16th circuit only to give it up on the next lap to Wolfe again.

With 10 to go Kreitz was back into second, still trying to close on Pittman as the race worked through traffic.

With nine laps to go Wolf was back in the runner up position only to see Kreitz again secure the spot shortly before the final lap.

Pittman meanwhile took advantage of the race for second between the pair to slowly edge out to about a one-turn margin at the finish.

“It couldn’t get any better than that,” Pittman said of his two-day Williams Grove sweep for the outlaws over the locals known as the Pennsylvania Posse.

“This is a big weekend for this team. I’m just a lucky guy getting’ to run this thing.”

“I pretty much made up my mind I was gonna’ run the bottom and make them go around me on the outside,” Pittman said.

“When you beat Donnie Kreitz here on the bottom you’ve done something.”

Pittman’s win also secured the Morgan Cup trophy for another season for the World of Outlaws circuit. The trophy will be put on display at outlaws headquarters in Concord, North Carolina until the cup contest is run again at next May’s Williams Grove event.

Kreitz finished second in the Saturday feature.

“A couple times I ran in over the berm down there,” Kreitz said.

“We did the best we could. Sorry to let the Posse fans down.”

Wolfe was third followed by Stevie Smith and Schatz.

Sixth through 10th went to Dave Blaney, Paul McMahan, Shane Stewart, Kerry Madsen and Alan Krimes.

Heats for the 45-car field went to Wolfe, Joey Saldana, Kreitz and Pittman.

Jacob Allen took the C Main and Sammy Swindell took the B Main.

McMahan set quick time with a lap of 16.889 seconds.

Two violent crashes took place in the qualifying heat races.

Twenty-time World of Outlaws champion Steve Kinser destroyed his car in the third heat after contact with a right rear sent him careening into the outside first turn wall which sent him into a vicious series of rolls after hard contact.

Dueling with Stevie Smith in the fourth heat to hold onto the second spot, Greg Hodnett destroyed his car as the pair raced onto the backstretch from the second corner.

When Hodnett came back on Smith for the second spot from the inside, he swiped the front of Smith’s car which turned him right and into the outside wall before flipping back across the track and stopping just short of the backstretch cross over.

May 17, 2014 Feature Finish:

410 sprints, 25 laps: 1. Daryn Pittman, 2. Don Kreitz Jr., 3. Lucas Wolfe, 4. Stevie Smith, 5. Donny Schatz, 6. Dave Blaney, 7. Paul McMahan, 8. Shane Stewart, 9. Kerry Madsen, 10. Alan Krimes, 11.

Pittman Wires For Williams Grove World Of Outlaws Win Friday

5/16/14

Mechanicsburg ?Defending World of Outlaws point champion Daryn Pittman drove Kasey Kahne?s No. 9 to the outlaws victory at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, wiring the field from the pole for the $8,000 win.

The triumph for Pittman was the 15th of Pittmans overall career at Williams Grove but it was his first in outlaws competition at the oval since May of 2011.

The initial start of the 25-lap sprint main was called back when Steve Buckwalter spun his car.

With Pittman in control followed by Joey Saldana, the next caution of the race unfurled with four laps recorded for a stopped Logan Schuchart on the backstretch.

Pittman chose the inside lane for the ensuing double file restart but the yellow again quickly came back out when action resumed for a three car tangle in the first corner involving Donnie Kreitz, Pat Cannon and Paul McMahan, who had been running sixth.

After the restart the balance of the event did go non-stop with Pittman Leading Saldana, Steve Kinser, Donny Schatz and David Gravel toward the rear of the field as the race neared the halfway point.

But rather than begin taking chances by trying to navigate through the traffic and forsake the inside line that was being favored by virtually the entire field, Pittman was content to back off on his progression toward the backmarkers and instead was content to chase the tail for the final 14 laps.

This strategy did allow his pursuers to creep directly in on his back bumper but with the field locked down to the inside lane there was no chance for anyone else to make any progress for position.

Kinser lost the motor on his mount and dropped out of third with 12 laps to go, elevating those behind him forward one position.

With five laps to go the front six and eight cars were under a blanket racing through the same set of turns at one time headed for the checkered flag.

Pittman took the win with confidence for his fourth World of Outlaws tour victory of the 2014 season.

?I started on the pole three times this year and didn?t win one of them,? said Pittman of his front row luck to date this season.

One of the cars that Pittman watched just ahead of him as part of the rear of the field for the final half of the race was Grove regular Brian Montieth, whom he mentioned in victory lane.

?When you can see Montieth running the top and not passing anybody you know you don?t wanna move off the bottom,? he commented of his strategy to settle in and hug the inside lane.

Saldana rode home second followed by Schatz, Gravel and Stevie Smith.

Sixth through 10th went to Alan Krimes, Justin Barger, Danny Dietrich, Brent Marks and Aaron Ott.

Heats for the 43 car field went to Barger, Gravel, McMahan and Smith.

Pittman won the dash with Austin Hogue taking the C Main and Montieth claiming the B Main.

Fast time was set by Saldana with a lap of 17.765 seconds.

May 16, 2014 Feature Finishes:

410 sprints, 25 laps: 1. Daryn Pittman, 2. Joey Saldana, 3. Donny Schatz, 4. David Gravel, 5. Stevie Smith, 6. Alan Krimes, 7. Justin Barger, 8. Danny Dietrich, 9. Brent Marks, 10. Aaron Ott, 11.

KENDALL EDGES McCLELLAND IN TRAIL-WAY 358 SPRINT INSINGER FUELS CHAMPIONSHIP;

ZEIGLER TAKES 358 LATE MODEL MAIN;

GARMAN HOLDS OFF LAYTON FOR ACMS 600 STOCK MICRO SPRINT WIN;

WEAVER TAKES FIRST LIMITED STOCK WIN IN TWO YEARS

Hanover, PA (05/16/14) – Robbie Kendall got the monkey off his back at Trail-Way Speedway Friday night, holding off all-time winner Brad McClelland by a scant .22 seconds to score his first win of the year in the 25-lap Insinger Fuels “358” championship and the $1,200 that went with it.

“My guys needed this one,” said Kendall upon exiting the Mike Paris-owned Turning Stone Resort & Casino/Wurtzer’s Garage/Travis Racing Engines #55 in victory lane, “We lost a motor one week and a drive shaft the next week…and we should have had two wins already this year. But it’s good to be back.”

Kendall started on the outside of row two and took the lead on the first lap. He was scored the leader of every lap despite heavy late-race pressure from McClelland, who started sixth and crossed under the checkered flag less than a carlength behind.

“He’s always fast here,” said Kendall of McClelland, “And we’re here to beat him.”

Cody Fletcher started eighth and caught outside front-row starter Denny Gross for third on lap 20. Gross crossed fourth, and Wyatt Hinkle, running only his second sprint car race, rounded out the top five.

Heat wins went to Kendall and Gross.

Cam Zeigler ended an eventful Precise Racing Products/Hoosier Tire Mid-Atlantic 25-lap “358” late model feature, scoring his first win as part of the Leinbach race team.

Zeigler started seventh, hit the tractor tire while racing with Travis Mease for fourth on lap three, went to the back after a collision with Kyle Lear on lap 14, and came back through the field to catch Tyler Horst for the race lead on lap 21. From there, he drove away to a 1.37-second win over Horst, who actually took the Precise points lead with the runner-up finish.

Third through fifth were James Jesmer, Jr., Mease, and Jeffrey King.

Qualifiers were won by Zeigler and Lear.

Sean Garman took the ACMS 600 stock micro-sprint division point series lead with his win in the 15-lap feature event.

Garman started on the outside of the front row and led every lap, even though Gunner Layton was on his back bumper at the end. Garman’s 15-lap time of 4:18.16 established an ACMS track record.

Third through fifth were Justin Whittail, Lance Yeager, and Logan Jones.

The lone qualifier was won by Layton.

Ricky Weaver, Jr. won his first race in two years in the 15-lap limited stock feature. Weaver started fifth and took the lead from Robbie Carroll on the second lap.

Again, it was close at the end, with Weaver’s margin of victory just .47-seconds ahead of 12th-starting Matt Chronister.

Third through fifth were Tom Senseney, Jr., Cody Klinedinst, and Jeff Foster.

Heats were won by Matt Chronister and Kenny Startzman.

Next Friday (5/23), Trail-Way will host the 358 Sprint Cars, Limited Stocks, Street Stocks and 1000cc Sidewinder Sprints. Service men and women can receive $4 off admission with a Service ID Card for “Armed Services Appreciation Day”. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. and racing begins at 7:30 p.m.

STP World Of Outlaws To Take On Williams Grove PA Posse This Week, May 16 & 17

5/11/14

Mechanicsburg – Williams Grove Speedway will present the STP World of Outlaws Sprint Cars this Friday and Saturday night, May 16 and 17, at 7:30 pm.

The invasion by the traveling band will be the first of three slated match ups between the outlaws and the Pennsylvania Posse this season.

On Friday night, the 25-lap sprint car winner will receive $8,000 while Saturday’s champion of a 30-lap feature will walk away with $12,000 plus another $5,000 for being crowned the 2014 Morgan Cup victor.

The Morgan Cup title is bestowed in honor of late speedway owner Morgan Hughes and the winner’s side of the title will take ownership of the sterling Morgan Cup for another season.

The trophy will be kept at either World of Outlaws headquarters in Concord, NC., or at the offices of Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg.

The May 2014 outlaws vs. posse clash will find the Williams Grove posse trying to keep its head up high after a sweep of the most recent challenges by the outlaws in last October’s National Open races when Don Kreitz Jr. and Fred Rahmer swept the two-day stand.

Prior to the National Open events, the STP World of Outlaws had swept the posse at Williams Grove during the circuit’s previous six appearances dating back to May of 2012.

Winners during that time included Donny Schatz, 3; Paul McMahan, Cody Darrah and Steve Kinser.

The outlaws invasion will also mark the return to Williams Grove of posse turned outlaws in 2014, Logan Schuchart and Jacob Allen, both of Hanover.

The circuit will hit town with Joey Saldana leading tour points along with other up front drivers Paul McMahan, defending champion Daryn Pittman and Donny Schatz.

Williams Grove returns to action on May 23 with a Diamond Series event for the 410 sprints along with action including the PASS 305 sprints and fireworks.

Aside from the Friday programs at the oval, the Williams Grove Speedway Saturday Series, offering racing action with the Super Sportsman, 358 late models and street stocks at 6:30 pm is currently underway, resuming May 24.

Saturday Series adult admission is JUST $5. And please remember, kids ages 12 and under are always admitted free at Williams Grove Speedway!

EARLY-EVENING SHOWERS FORCE LINCOLN TO CANCEL SATURDAY PROGRAM;

World of Outlaws to invade Pigeon Hills this Wednesday night

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 5/10/2014 – Persistent rain showers into the evening forced Lincoln Speedway promoters to cancel Saturday evening’s May 10th racing program of 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints, and Central PA Legends.

And the showers never arrived until the worst possible time. Despite a forecast for morning and afternoon showers, it didn’t rain a drop until Fred Putney and his crew had the track run in and ready for hotlaps.

Thirty-seven “410” sprint cars, 21 “358” sprinters, and 27 Central PA Legends were in the pits for a World of Outlaw tune-up that was going to pay $4,000 to win.

Putney and the track crew ran the track in a second time after the first shower hit the track during the driver’s meeting at 6:15 p.m. Light rain began to fall again when the first group of 358’s were on the track for warm-ups. The second group was never called out, and promoters through in the towel when radar showed another hour to two hours of on-and-off rain at 8:00 p.m.

This coming Wednesday, May 14th, the WORLD OF OUTLAWS will be invading the Pigeon Hills oval. Time trials will get underway at 7:30 PM. Special Pit gates open at 3 PM, with general admission gates opening at 4 PM.

FORECAST FOR RAIN & THUNDERSTORMS POSTPONES JACK GUNN MEMORIAL FOR SPRINT CARS UNTIL JUNE 7

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – A forecast for rain and thunderstorms to move into central Pennsylvania this afternoon and evening prompted Selinsgrove Speedway officials to postpone tonight’s Jack Gunn Memorial for 358-360 sprint cars until Saturday, June 7, at 7 p.m.

The makeup date for the 34th running of the Gunn Memorial will be sanctioned by the United Racing Company (URC) and will also include the super late models and pro stocks sponsored by PEPSI.

“We would have had a lot of fans and teams traveling from outside of Pennsylvania for tonight’s URC race, so as a courtesy to everyone we wanted to make a decision early this afternoon,” said promoter Charlie Paige. “The June 7 date worked out to reschedule the Jack Gunn Memorial with URC officials.”

The Empire Super Sprints (ESS) will return to Selinsgrove Speedway at 7 p.m. Saturday, May 17, in a full-point 360 sprint car race sponsored by Mach 1 Chassis. The super late models, pro stocks, and roadrunners will also be on the racing card. Track gates will open at 5 p.m.

SCHEDULE CHANGE: There will be no racing on the half-mile track Saturday, May 24. The Maxxis Mid-Atlantic Dirt Series event for go karts that was originally scheduled for March 28-29 has been rescheduled for Friday, May 23, and Saturday, May 24, on the speedway’s one-fifth mile track. Saturday’s go kart race will feature a $10,000-to-win event.

 

 

Hodnett Preps For Outlaws With Williams Grove Win, Nouse 2 In A Row In 358s

5/9/14

Mechanicsburg – Greg Hodnett wrestled the lead away from invader Shane Stewart to win Friday night’s 410 sprint car feature at Williams Grove Speedway, worth $4,000 to the winner of the tune up race meant to prepare the Williams Grove regulars for next week’s World of Outlaws invasion.

In the 358 sprint car feature, for the second week in a row Phil Walter led over half of the race and also just like last week, it was Kevin Nouse who ended up winning the race.

Hodnett started third in the 25-lap 410 sprint main with Stewart flanking polesitter Don Kreitz Jr. for the start.

The first five laps found Stewart firmly in control with Kreitz and Hodnett in tow when the races first yellow flag unfurled for a stopped Brian Montieth.

Hodnett had just blistered around Kreitz for the second spot when the red flag appeared next with eight laps recorded for a two-car tangle between Rick Lafferty and Gerard McIntyre Jr.

Hodnett began directly applying pressure for the lead on the restart but it took until the 14th lap for him to take his first real swipe at the lead.

The Thomasville flyer drove deep into the first corner to pull a massive slider for the lead but Stewart promptly turned the car off of the cushion and reclaimed control as the pair raced onto the backstretch.

Hodnett then regrouped and was nose to tail with Stewart for the lead as they raced across the stripe with 10 laps to go.

The next time by the order would be reversed at the line as Hodnett was able to drive around Stewart as the pair raced off of the fourth corner.

And once out front he began pulling away for the win while Stewart seemed left to battle an ill handling racer.

With seven laps to go he jumped the cushion in the first turn allowing both Doug Esh and Kreitz to race by and then with four laps to go he nearly pounded the outside rail in the third turn only to again regain control of his white racer.

The victory was the first of the year for Hodnett at Williams Grove and the 54th of his oval career.

Esh was second at the finish followed by Kreitz, Ryan Smith and Lance Dewease.

Sixth through 10th went to Danny Dietrich, Stewart, Mark Smith, Adam Wilt and Lucas Wolfe.

Heats for the 31-car field went to Kreitz, Dewease and Rodney Westhafer.

Kreitz won the dash and Rick Lafferty took the B Main.

Fast time was set by Lucas Wolfe with a lap of 16.728 seconds.

Phil Walter started on the pole of the 358 sprint main and was leading over Matt Campbell and Kody Lehman when the races first caution flag fell with four laps away.

Nouse, who started 11th in the field, was racing fifth for the restart and found himself up to second at the halfway point when another yellow flag unfurled.

Walter withstood the challenges of Nouse until lap 14 when the Lewisberry driver finally was able to make his bottom groove work and drive into the lead over the cushion running Walter.

A final caution with five laps to go again regrouped the field and although Walter was able to stay close enough that Nouse could hear him over the final stages he was never able to push back into the lead.

Walter rode home second followed by Campbell, Adrian Shaffer and Kody Lehman.

Sixth through 10th went to Tyler Esh, Jay Galloway, Brie Hershey, Scott Fisher and DJ Montgomery.

Heats for the 22-car field went to Nouse, Doug Hammaker and Campbell.

May 9, 2014 Feature Finishes:

410 sprints, 25 laps: 1. Greg Hodnett, 2. Doug Esh, 3. Don Kreitz Jr., 4. Ryan Smith, 5. Lance Dewease, 6. Danny Dietrich, 7. Shane Stewart, 8. Mark Smith, 9. Adam Wilt, 10. Lucas Wolfe, 11.

DIETZ PICKS UP WIN IN FIRST-EVER TRAIL-WAY 358 SPRINT CAR RUN;

Hanover, PA (05/09/14) – York’s Chase Dietz hasn’t forgotten how to win at Trail-Way Speedway.

Making his first-ever “358” sprint car start at Trail-Way and first run the Michael Markey #31, the 2012 Trail-Way 600cc micro-sprint champ started on the front row and led every lap of the 25-lap feature Friday night.

“This is a heck-of-a way to get back to victory lane,” said the sprint car sophomore, “This is the first time I’ve raced at Trail-Way since 2012.”

“I thought Chase was the best driver to put in the car,” said car owner Markey, “Looks like I was right.”

“We weren’t very good in the heat race,” said Dietz, “but we pulled the wing back and it ran great in the feature.”

Touche.

Dietz grabbed the lead from polesitter Cody Fletcher at the outset, and despite mid-race pressure from third-starting Isaac Sneeringer, he was never headed.

Sneeringer held off a late charge from Robbie Kendall to finish second, with Brad McCelland and Seth Kearchner completing the top five.

Heats for the 11 “358” sprint cars were won by Jeff Halligan (who flipped and brought out the only red or yellow flag of the feature) and Dwight Leppo.

Brad Weber claimed the win in the 20-lap 600cc micro-sprint feature. Weber started fourth and caught lady driver Cheyenne Topper for the lead on lap 12, one lap before Topper spun after contact with David Holbrook while battling for second in turns three and four.

Holbrook chased Weber the rest of the way and finished second, with Jim Young, Shawn Seifert, and Alyson Dietz (sister to 358 sprint winner Chase) completing the top five.

Qualifiers for the 17 micros were won by Young and Bret Cronrath.

Dan Furman came from eighth starting spot to win the 20-lap street stock feature.

Furman took the lead from polesitter Jeremy Stremmel on lap 12 and led the rest of the way.

Ninth-starting Patrick McClane, Stremmel, Craig Wagaman, and Michael Goodwin rounded out the top five.

Wagaman came from the back after losing his steering wheel and drifting to the infield while running second on lap seven.

Kyle Emig and Todd Miller uninjured in a spectacular crash on the front stretch of lap 12. The two got together at the flagstand, sending Emig onto the front stretch wall, damaging the catch fence, and leading to a brief fire.

Heats for the 14 street stocks were won by Wagaman and Stremmel.

Matt Chronister won for the second straight week in the 15-lap limited stock feature.

Chronister started 11th, was in the top five by the end of the second lap, and caught brother Jason for the lead on lap 11.

Robbie Carroll led the first eight laps from the outside of the front row before dropping off the pace while leading with a flat right front tire, handing the lead over to Jason Chronister.

Jason Chronister completed the family sweep with a second-place finish, followed by Ricky Weaver, Jr., 12th-starting Cory Weishaar, and Shannon Weaver.

Qualifiers for the 21 limited stocks were won by Matt Chroniser and Weishaar.

Next Friday (5/16), Trail-Way will host the Insinger Fuels Spring Championship for the 358 Sprint Cars. Also on the schedule are the 358 Late Models, Limited Stocks, and ACMS 600cc Stock Sprints. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. and racing begins at 7:30 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 falls.

Dewease Wins Sunday Night Sprint Car Special at SSP

Wednesday Night Test & Tune Up Next on May 7

Newberrytown, PA (May 4, 2014) � Lance Dewease of Fayetteville took the victory in the Sunday Night Sprint Car at the Susquehanna Speedway Park. It was Dewease�s 16th career SSP victory, tying for 13fh with Van May with Super 410 Sprint Car victories at SSP. Gene Knaub of Dover collected the Late Model 25 lapper. Mike Zelionis and Rohan Bealsey split the Sidewinder Sprint Car dual features.

Blaine Heimbach started the 410 Sprint Car 25-lapper from the pole position, but it was Brandon Rahmer taking the early lead at the start. Rahmer led the first nine circuits until Lance Dewease made the veteran move to pass Rahmer going into turn one on the tenth circuit of the race. The next lap, Danny Dietrich made his way by Rahmer to move into the runner-up spot and setting his sights on the leader. Dietrich came close a few times, but was never able to make the complete pass for the lead. Dewease held on for the win, followed by Dietrich. Donnie Kreitz made a late race charge to finish in third with Greg Hodnett finishing fourth. Heimbach rounded out a solid fifth place finish. Heat race wins went to Dewease, Rick Lafferty and Aaron Ott.

In the Late Model 25-lap feature event, Ben Whitaker grabbed the early lead and set the pace for the first seven laps as Gene Knaub and J.R. Rodriguez battled for the second place position. Once Knaub made it by Rodriguez on lap seven, he took control of the top spot on the next circuit and never looked back to take the victory. On the last lap, Chase Billet scooted by Rodriguez to take the runner-up spot with Rodriguez finishing third. Randy Christine Jr. finished fourth with Kyle Martin in fifth. Whitaker�s strong run came to an end when he retired from the race on lap 19. Matt Adams, Knaub and Rodriguez were all heat race winners.

$3,500-TO-WIN GUNN MEMORIAL CHALLENGE FOR 358-360 SPRINT CARS THIS SATURDAY AT SELINSGROVE

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Selinsgrove Speedway will present the 34th running of the Jack Gunn Memorial for sprint cars, one of the most popular open wheel races of the season at the historic Snyder County half-mile oval, at 7 p.m. this Saturday, May 10, sanctioned by the United Racing Company (URC).

Joining the 358-360 sprint cars on this Saturday's racing card will be the super late models and pro stocks. Track gates will open at 5 p.m.

For the ninth consecutive year, the Gunn Memorial will feature a 30-lap race between the traveling United Racing Company (URC) 360 sprint cars and the track's weekly A&A Auto Stores 358-360 sprint cars. The race will pay $3,500 to win and $225 to start out of a $15,000-plus purse. Time trials, heats, and a B-Main will be the format for setting the 24-car starting field for the Gunn Memorial.

The tribute race is run each year to honor the memory of the late Hall-of-Fame race track promoter Jack Gunn, who operated Selinsgrove, Williams Grove, Penn National, and Hagerstown Speedways during his career and brought mid-state dirt track racing to national prominence in the 1970's. Gunn was inducted posthumously into the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame (Knoxville, Iowa) in 1990.

Over the years, some of the biggest names in sprint car racing have won the prestigious Jack Gunn Memorial at Selinsgrove Speedway. Lynn Paxton of Dillsburg; Steve Kinser of Bloomington, Ind.; Doug Wolfgang of Sioux Falls, S.D.; and most recently, as 358 sprint car drivers, TJ Stutts of Liverpool; Chad Layton of Harrisburg; Blane Heimbach of Selinsgrove; and Dave Calaman of Carlisle are a few of the past winners of the Gunn Memorial.

The Gunn Memorial became a challenge race between 358 and 360 sprint car drivers beginning in 2006, when Heimbach took the popular victory as well as in the 2008 and 2012 editions of the race. Dave Calaman of Carlisle (2007), Trevor Lewis of Upper Black Eddy (2009, 2010), and Shane Stewart of Indianapolis, Ind. (2011) have also won the Gunn Memorial as a challenge event. JJ Grasso of Pedricktown, N.J., is the defending winner of the race.

Entering this weekend's action, four races have produced three different winners in 358-360 sprint car competition at the track. Mark Smith of Sunbury became the first repeat feature winner of the season in the May 3 show. TJ Stutts of Liverpool and Davie Franek of Wantage, N.J., have also won sprint car races this season.

In the late model division, four races have produced four different winners. Single wins have gone to Danville drivers Jeff Rine and Steve Campbell, Jim Yoder of Selinsgrove, and Dan Stone of Thompson.

Selinsgrove Raceway Park will present a program of go karts and micro sprint cars at 7 p.m. Friday, May 9, plus a $200-to-win pro series race for the animal 375 lb. class. Track gates will open at 5:30 p.m.

Late Rain Forces Port Royal Make Ups For 410 Sprints, Super Lates and 305s

Port Royal – The 410 sprints were on the track, formed up and ready for the feature green flag when a second bout of rain on the night struck Port Royal Speedway on Saturday evening, forcing postponement of the main events. Postponed along with the 410 sprint feature were mains for the super late models and the 305 sprint cars. Make up dates for the three feature events will be announced in the near future.

Nine quick heats were spun off after early evening rain pushed the start of the show until nearly 8:30pm. Heats for the 22 410 sprints on hand went to Davey Sammons, Curt Stroup and Mike Wagner. Wagner set a new eight-lap track record in his qualifier with a time of 2:06.260, eclipsing the old mark set by Mark Coldren last season. Super late heats for the 21-car field on hand went to Mitch Hack, Mike Lupfer and Bud Phillips. And a trio of 305 sprint qualifiers for a 27-car field went to Kody Lehman, Eric Parker and Anthony Fiore.

Upon a make up date, the 410 sprint main will go to the post with Rodney Westhafer and Justin Barger on the front row.

Mitch Hack and Matt Parks will share the front row for the super late model make up and Eric Parker and Kyle Lloyd will have the front row for the 305 feature. Port Royal Speedway will present Lake Chevrolet Mother's Night next Saturday, May 10 at 7 pm featuring a program of 410 sprints, super late models and 355 econo late models. General admission for all mothers attending the program will be priced at just $10.

STONE WIRES FIELD FOR THREE STATE FLYERS LATE MODEL VICTORY; SMITH BECOMES FIRST REPEAT SPRINT CAR WINNER OF SEASON

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Mark Smith of Sunbury became the first repeat sprint car winner of the season in the 25-lap 358-360 sprint car feature Saturday night at Selinsgrove Speedway. Smith, driving the Mach 1 Chassis No. 1, took home $2,000 for his seventh career win in 358-360 sprint car racing at the half-mile oval.

Dan Stone of Thompson wired the field for his first win of the season in the first-ever Three State Flyers Late Model Series 35-lap feature. Stone earned $3,000 for his sixth career super late model victory at the track.

Despite a one-hour rain delay, the speedway was in excellent condition for the competitive field of 25 sprint car and 24 late model drivers on Jeff's Auto Body & Recycling Night.

Selinsgrove Speedway will present the Mach 1 Chassis Jack Gunn Memorial for 358-360 sprint cars sanctioned by the United Racing Company (URC) at 7 p.m. Saturday, May 10. The 30-lap tribute race will pay $3,500 to win. Joining the sprint cars on the racing card will be the super late models and pro stocks. Track gates will open at 5 p.m.

Second-place starter Colby Womer powered into the lead at the start of the sprint car feature. Womer was chased by polesitter Cody Keller. The race's first caution flag unfurled on lap four when Scott Lutz's car stopped on the backstretch.

When the race resumed, Keller challenged Womer for the lead and made a successful pass using the inside lane in turn two on lap five. A lap later, eighth-place starter Mark Smith advanced to second. At the halfway point, Keller had a strong lead over Smith until his car lost power on the frontstretch.

Smith inherited the lead with Womer, seventh-place starter Pat Cannon, fifth-place starter Ryan Kissinger, and 12th-place starter Davie Franek competing in the top five. Then the red flag stopped the race on lap 13 when Matt Horst and Mark Bittner crashed in turn two. Both drivers escaped injury.

On the restart, Smith opened up a lead while an intense battle unfolded for second between Womer and Cannon. A wheel-to-wheel race also unfolded for the fourth position between fourth-place starter Jason Shultz and 11th-place starter Davie Franek.

Cannon took over second when Womer's car bobbled in turn four on lap 22. With two laps remaining, Franek stormed into third. At the checkered flag, Smith was victorious by 2.5 seconds over Cannon, Franek, Shultz, and Womer.

The late model feature started with a two-car tangle in turn two before a rain delay stopped the race for about one hour. When the race restarted, polesitter Dan Stone stormed into the lead over second-place starter Andy Haus. On the second circuit, Haus and third-place starter Matt Cochran see-sawed for the runner-up position.

Cochran took over second and set his sites on Stone as fourth-place starter Steve Campbell powered into the third position. By lap 14, Cochran was beginning to reel in Stone in slower traffic. On a lap 17 restart, Cochran's car was glued to Stone's around the lightning-fast half mile oval. Meanwhile, an intense race for third unfolded between Campbell and sixth-place starter Jeff Rine.

Misfortune struck Cochran on lap 26 when his front fender came off and a tire went flat. On the lap 27 restart, the top four drivers pulled away from the pack with Stone now fending off Campbell for the lead. With two laps remaining, Rine's car fell off the pace and 12th-place starter Kenny Pettyjohn took over the third position.

At the finish, Stone was victorious by just 1.3 seconds over Campbell, Haus, Pettyjohn, and 18th-place starter Dylan Yoder.

SIEGEL WINS SECOND OF YEAR IN 11TH ANNUAL WELDON STERNER MEMORIAL;

Campbell wins second of Lincoln career in 358 sprints; Hunter Nester scores first Lincoln win in All-American Outlaws

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 5/3/2014 – Jim Siegel collected the $7,000 top prize in claiming the 33-lap 410 sprint car feature win in the 11th Annual Weldon Sterner memorial at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

A heavy and tacky track resulting from a 45-minute rain delay made for super-fast speeds, and the last 25 laps went non-stop.

“Oh, man…I’m whipped. It was a tough race track. It was fast all night and pretty demanding,” said Siegel upon exiting the Mason-Dixon Vault Company #59 in victory lane.

Siegel started on the front row beside polesitter Brian Leppo, who was subbing for vacationing Brian Montieth and the Jerry Parrish #21, which carried the Sterner Cement #69 logo on the top wing.

Leppo grabbed the lead at the outset and led the first seven laps before bobbling in turn two and opening the door for Siegel’s race-winning move.

“Brian got up front there and I didn’t know if I’d catch him. I think he was pushing real hard,” said Siegel, “It was only the second time he was in the car, so he was trying to feel things out a little bit and got over the cushion and I got by him.”

Siegel led the rest of the way, despite late-race pressure from Greg Hodnett, who set fast time on the night, started sixth and caught Leppo for second on lap 11. Leppo settled for third, with Kyle Moody and Gerard McIntyre, Jr. completing the top five. Moody and McIntyre both finished where they started.

“With all those (early) cautions, I was worried about my tire bleeding down. But we got going there,” said Siegel, “I got to lapped traffic, and they’re tough. (Fred) Rahmer’s boys ran 13.4’s in time trials and it’s, like, they’re sixth race! There’s a lot of good competition out here, and the race seemed to last forever. We put a fresh Don Ott engine in tonight, and it just ripped all night.”

Sixth through tenth were 21st-starting and hard-charger Danny Dietrich (who actually went to the pits and made repairs after losing a front wing in a multi-car crash in turn two of lap three), Robbie Kendall, Alan Krimes, Cory Haas, and 18th-starting Lance Dewease.

Heats for the 410 sprinters were won by Kendall, Siegel, Freddie Rahmer, and Leppo, with Glenndon Forsythe winning the consolation. Fast time in time trials over the 34-car field was set by Greg Hodnett with a one-lap time of 13.156 seconds (102.615 MPH).

16-year-old Matt Campbell, still on his six-month learning permit to drive a car in Pennsylvania, came from eighth starting spot to grab the lead from polesitter Ryan Higgins on lap four and drove to a convincing 2.97-second win in the 20-lap 358 sprint car feature.

It was Campbell’s second career Lincoln win and third career win overall.

12th-starting Niki Young reclaimed the points lead with a second-place finish, followed by Tyler Esh, Chandler Leiby, and Mike Bittinger in the Michael Markey #31.

Heats for the 24 358 sprinters were won by Brie Hershey, Esh, and Leiby.

Hunter Nester claimed his first career Lincoln win in the 20-lap All-American Outlaw feature. Nester started beside polesitter Randy Doty and followed Doty the first lap before Doty suddenly slowed on the back stretch and came to a stop on lap two.

Nester received race-long pressure from Tim Fake, who was actually scored the leader in side-by-side racing on laps 14 and 15. Nester reclaimed the lead from Fake on lap 16, and led the rest of the way, with Fake fading to fourth at the end.

Dylan Keim made a late-race charge to cross second, with Kurt Zimmerman coming from 15th-starting spot to finish third.

Rounding out the top five was Jim Minter.

Heats for the 20 All American Outlaws were won by Doty and Nester.

Next Saturday, May 10th, it will be PROSPECT METAL & USED AUTO PARTS NIGHT along with Dover Elementary Night as the 410 Sprinters will be tuning up for the invading World of Outlaw show coming up on Wed., May 14th. Time trials will get underway at 7:30 PM. Joining them will be the 358 Sprints & Central PA Legends. Gates open at 5:30 PM.

Dietrich And Knouse Take First Williams Grove Sprint Wins Of Season

by Shawn Brouse

Mechanicsburg – Danny Dietrich was the third and final leader of Friday night's 25-lap 410 sprint car feature at Williams Grove Speedway, taking his first win of the season at the track. Likewise in the 358 sprint main it was Kevin Nouse becoming the third and final leader to record his first of the season.

Polesitter Austin Hogue took the lead in the 410 sprint main when action began with Ryan Wilson in tow. The first seven laps went non-stop before a caution slowed the pace for a spin in the fourth turn. A total of three attempts at the restart were needed before one more lap was recorded and another yellow flag bunched the field.

And then the final 17 laps clicked off when action resumed with Wilson applying heavy pressure for control on the restart. Wilson kept going higher around the speedway until he finally pulled off a pass of Hogue using the rough cushion in the second turn on the 12th lap. But following him quickly into second was Dietrich a lap later.

Wilson was flying high for the next several laps, outdistancing Dietrich easily until the rear of the field came into play with seven laps to go.

It was then that the backmarker of Brock Zearfoss was in the line of Wilson's race that forced him off of his rhythym and that's all it took for Dietrich to pounce, also with a second turn move.

The Gettysburg driver then pulled away to his eighth career win at the oval, which matches his father Dan on the oval's all time win list.

Wilson finished a robust second followed by Mark Smith, Lance Dewease and Hogue. Sixth through 10th went to Alan Krimes, Adam Wilt, Brian Leppo, Chad Layton and Greg Hodnett. Heats for the 24-car field went to Hodnett, Wilt and Layton.

Second starter Scott Fisher led the first five laps of the 20-lap 358 sprint main before he succumbed to Phil Walter's high-wire act around the speedway that netted him control of the event. And then Walter began getting away from the field in a search for his first ever Williams Grove victory. Adrian Shaffer motored into second on the 13th tour with Walter well out in front but it was just then that Walter's mount suddenly slowed with an overheating engine.

Shaffer then assumed control but would soon find defending track champion Kevin Nouse, who started 12th, contending for the top spot.

Knouse crossed the line with a lap to go just far enough to Shaffer's inside to edge him off of the bottom groove as the pair raced into the first corner. And that proved to be the winning move for Knouse who went on to take the ninth Williams Grove checkers of his career in the division.

Shaffer finished second followed by 10th starter Brock Zearfoss, Fisher and Tyler Esh. Sixth through 10th went to Jay Galloway, Chandler Leiby, Doug Hammaker, Tony Smolenyak and Nyle Berkes. Heats for the 21 cars went to Shaffer, Duane Watson and Nouse.

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Selinsgrove Speedway will host the Three State Flyers Late Model Series for the first time in series history at 7 p.m. this Saturday, May 3. The super late models will be joined by the 358-360 sprint cars on the two-division racing card sponsored by Jeff’s Auto Body & Recycling Center. Track gates will open at 5 p.m.

The 35-lap super late model A-Main will pay $3,000 to win and $300 to start out of the $14,345 purse. Time trials, heat races, and a B-main will be the qualifying format for the division’s fourth race of the season at the Snyder County half-mile oval.

The 2014 11-race Three State Flyers series will kick off this Friday at the Bedford Speedway before coming to Selinsgrove for Race #2 on Saturday. Mark Pettyjohn of Milton, Del., won last year’s series opener at the Winchester Speedway and went on to clinch the 2013 title over Jason Covert of York Haven, who is a former three-time Three State Flyers champion.

Covert is expected to be in the field for this Saturday’s race at Selinsgrove and has one win already this season at the Potomac Speedway in Maryland. The win on April 4 was Covert’s first career at Potomac and first for his new car owners Pete Cameron and Roland Mann. Covert, who has more than 100 career victories, owns a single late model win at Selinsgrove from 2006.

In late model racing this season at Selinsgrove, three races have produced three different winners. All-time win leader and defending champion Jeff Rine of Danville scored the season opener on April 12. Veteran racers Steve Campbell of Danville and Jim Yoder of Selinsgrove took checkered flags on April 19 and April 26, respectively.

The 360 sprint car racing era was ushered in during the month of April with three different winners in as many races. TJ Stutts of Liverpool (April 12); Mark Smith of Sunbury (April 19); and most recently Davie Franek of Wantage, N.J., (April 26) have taken wins in 360 sprint car racing action at the track. This Saturday the 358-360 sprint cars will compete in a 25-lap feature paying $2,000 to win and $200 to start.

An open practice session will be held on the half-mile track this Wednesday, April 30, from 6:30-9 p.m. General admission for the practice night is free; the entry fee per race car is $100.

Selinsgrove Raceway Park will present a complete program of go kart and micro sprint car racing at 7 p.m. Friday, May 2.

In the 15-lap pro stock feature, Brad Mitch of McClure pulled off the “hat trick” with his third straight win, while defending roadrunner champion Brian Johnson of Ashland won his first 12-lap race of the year.

Selinsgrove Speedway will present the first-ever appearance by the Three State Flyers Late Model Series plus 358-360 sprint cars at 7 p.m. Saturday, May 3. The late models will compete in a 30-lap feature paying $3,000 to win. Track gates will open at 5 p.m.

Polesitter Cody Keller charged into the lead at the start of the sprint car feature. Fourth-place starter and defending champion Jason Shultz powered by Keller for the early lead entering the third turn on the second lap. By the third circuit, seventh-place starter Davie Franek motored his way into the third position. Two laps later, fifth-place starter Brock Zearfoss advanced to third and a close battle unfolded at the front of the pack.

On the 10th lap, the race for the lead heated up, and Franek got underneath Shultz in turn two and then made the winning pass using the outside lane racing off turn four. At the halfway point, Franek was leading Shultz and Zearfoss as ninth-place starter TJ Stutts and 10th-place starter Mark Smith raced into the top five.

With five laps to go, an exciting battle for second took place between Zearfoss and Shultz, with Zearfoss winning out the position on lap 21. At the finish, Franek was victorious by 3.3 seconds over Zearfoss, Stutts, Shultz, and Smith.

A multi-car crash in turns three and four opened the late model feature. When the race restarted, second-place starter Jim Bernheisel pulled into the lead over polesitter Chad Hollenbeck. On the third circuit, ninth-place starter Jim Yoder used the inside lane through turns three and four to pass Hollenbeck for second.

Yoder made the winning pass by Bernheisel in turn four on lap six. A caution flag on lap nine regrouped the field with Yoder leading Bernheisel, Hollenbeck, seventh-place starter Kenny Trevitz, and 10th-place starter Andy Haus. With 10 laps to race, Yoder started to stretch his lead over Bernheisel as Trevitz showed a lot of speed and moved into the third position.

At the checkered flag, Yoder took the win by 1.6 seconds over Bernheisel, Trevitz, Haus, and 14th-place starter Dylan Yoder.

Following multiple melees that hindered the start of the pro stock feature, original seventh-place starter Brad Mitch horsepowered his way into the early lead and kept his 10M out in front for the distance. Mitch was closely trailed by 14th-place starter AJ Stroup for most of the event.

Fifth-place starter Nathan Long, who was involved in one of the early-race incidents, rebounded into a solid third-place run after a long battle with third-place starter Tommy Slanker. At the finish, Mitch took the checkered flag over Stroup by just one second. Stroup, however, was disqualified in the post-race inspection due to a malfunctioning rev-limiter box.

Long was then credited with second, followed by ninth-place starter Jamin Chapmin, 18th-place starter Kurt Wray, and fourth-place starter Peanut Heintzelman.

Third-place starter Curtis Lawton drove into the lead on the second attempt to start the roadrunner feature. Lawton was chased by eighth-place starter and defending champion Brian Johnson for the first half of the race until Johnson took over the front spot on lap seven.

Johnson won his first race of the season by 2.1 seconds over Lawton, fifth-place starter Keith Bissinger, sixth-place starter Butch Shaffer, and fourth-place starter John Fowler Jr.

Rich Eichelberger, Kyle Lee, and Jeff Haag Win Williams Grove Speedway Saturday Features

Mechanicsburg, PA. April 27

Williams Grove Speedway began the 2014 campaign Saturday night. On a blustery night, Rich Eichelberger won the Blazer’s Body Shop Super Sportsman 20-lap feature. Kyle Lee made his initial start at Williams Grove and captured his career first Credit Connection Car Sales 20-lap 358 Late Model feature. Veteran Jeff Haag held off a final-lap challenge to score the victory in the 15 lap Aquafun Pools Street Stock main.

Rich Eichelberger entered the evening’s racing with a heavy heart. The day prior his father passed away. The York Springs driver started in second position. He was the immediate leader, gaining a 12-length advantage by the second lap. Lanny Hake, Gregg Foster, Scott Dellinger, Steve Wilbur and Chad Criswell were in pursuit of the leader.

The race came to a halt on lap three when Rick Barr, Scott Geesey, and Dave Berkheimer tangled in turn one, sending the Geesey car into a flip. Geesey walked away from his spill.

Eichelberger continued his assault of the half-mile oval, gaining a 6.9 second lead when the caution came out on lap 15.

The caution did not deter Eichelberger. He won his first of the year by 2.2 seconds over Foster, Dellinger, Wilbur, and Criswell. The victory is the 84th of Eichelberger’s career moving him into second place of the all-time leading Super Sportsman feature winners.

The qualifying wins for the 28 cars went to Frankie Herr, Dellinger, and Eichelberger.

Kyle Lee, a 15-year old student at James Buchannon High School, started the 358 Late Model feature in second place. Lee was in front by the completion of the opening circuit. Shaun Jones was in hot pursuit, lurking two lengths behind the leader.

Caution flags on laps seven and 11 did not hamper the young leader. He continued his flawless race, not allowing Jones an opportunity to strike. The battle was for third between Wes Alleman and Gene Knaub. Knaub made countless challenges, Alleman turning back each attempt.

Kyle Lee did not falter and he crossed the finish line four lengths ahead of Jones, Alleman, Knaub, and Travis Mease.

Chris Fletcher, Cam Zeigler, and Jones won the heats for the 29-car field. The consolation goes to Jared Miller.

Steve Hastings led the first lap of the Street Stock feature. Jeff Haag, the third-place starter, became the new leader in the second circuit.

Following a lap-five restart, Mike Buckley gained second place. Buckley began a relentless chase of the leader. Buckley would attempt passes on the outside, later moving to the inside. Haag had the momentum off the turns to turn back the challenges.

Buckley tested the outside line during the final three laps. On the final lap he switched lanes dropping to the inside. He pulled even with Haag in turns three and four. The two veteran drivers had a sprint to the finish line. Haag’s Camaro won by a length over Buckley. Steven Dove was third, with Hastings in fourth, and Brett Pickell was fifth.

The preliminaries for the 23 entries went to Dove and Pickell.

Chad Trout received the Sprint Aces Super Sportsman Hard Charger award. The Artwerks 358 Hard Charger Award went to Pat Beard and Charles Ruppert passed 13 cars to claim the Street Stock Artwerks Hard Charger money.

The Williams Grove Speedway Saturday Night Series returns to action this Saturday at 6:30. The racing will feature the Blazer’s Body Shop Super Sportsman, Credit Connection Car Sales 358 Late Models, and the Aquafun Pools Street Stocks. Adult admission remains at the low price of five dollars with children 12 and under free.

PRS 2014 – 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

Hodnett Takes $13,400 In ASCoC Port Royal Bob Weikert Memorial

2015 event will go 40 laps, Pay $15,000 to win!

4/26/14

Port Royal – Greg Hodnett of Thomasville pocketed a total of $13,400 for his victory in the All Star Circuit of Champions Sprints Bob Weikert Memorial at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night in a race that saw the front four cars contend for the lead at one point during the mid stages.

It was the fourth victory of Hodnett’s career in the prestigious event and his first of the season anywhere as well as for his new team owned by Mike Heffner.

Just before the feature began, the Weikert family announced in conjunction with oval officials that the 2015 installment of the event will be expanded to a 40-lap feature that will pay a minimum of $15,000 to the winner.

Some 36-cars competed in the 2014 event with Hodnett setting fast time over the field and garnering $500 for his efforts in honor of late fan Raymond Jacobs.

Chad Layton then won the dash to earn the pole for the 29-lap Weikert main while also pocketing $300 for the dash victory. Hodnett started second in the feature via a second in the dash.

But when Layton jumped the gun to start the Weikert feature, All Stars rules forced him back a row for the restart, which in turn moved All Star Dale Blaney to the pole for the new green.

Blaney and Hodnett dueled when the feature began with Blaney leading the field through the first and second turns only to see Hodnett take control narrowly as the pair traversed through the fourth turn, leading back to the stripe in side by side fashion with Blaney.

A yellow flag for Weikert No. 29 driver Danny Dietrich regrouped the field for the only time during the affair as the final 26 laps would go non-stop.

Blaney shot underneath Hodnett for the lead on the restart but as would be the case numerous times over the next 20 laps or so Hodnett would slingshot off of the cushion in the second corner to drive back into control on the backchute.

Seventh starter Brent Marks and sixth starter Shane Stewart began bolting to the front during the ensuing laps and by the time the leaders entered the backmarkers on the tenth tour they were in contention for the win.

With the four lined up under a blanket within a half straightaway of one another, Blaney blasted underneath Hodnett in the first and second turns to take control on the 15th lap as the pair raced down the backstretch.

But Hodnett changed him up as they headed into the third corner and reclaimed the top spot to again be in front at the line.

Blaney continued his assault for the lead during the next three miles of racing before Hodnett began slowly sneaking out of sight in traffic.

The pair of Marks and Stewart by then began exchanging the third spot with Stewart taking the position with 11 laps to go before blasting by Blaney for second with eight laps left.

Both Blaney and Marks then surged back around Stewart during intense racing in traffic with four laps to go.

Marks, then surging late motored by Blaney for second with a pair of laps left but Blaney fought back to cross the finish line in the end as runner up.

Marks was third followed by Stewart and 10th starter Danny Holtgraver.

Chad Layton rode home sixth followed by Lucas Wolfe, Mike Wagner, Ryan Smith and Logan Wagner.

Hodnett’s total of $13,400 included the posted $10,000 for the victory, $2,900 in lap money at $100 per lap and the $500 for fast time.

The winning driver, car owner and mechanic received certificates for personalized embroidered jackets from the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame.

After starting 24th in the field, Aaron Ott earned the Hard Charger award of $300 for finishing 11th in the feature.

Heats worth $150 to each winner courtesy of Packers Concessions and the Weikert family went to Logan Wagner, Tim Shaffer, Pat Cannon and Mike Wagner.

Layton won the dash and Danny Dietrich took the B Main.

Andrew Yoder wired the field for his second victory in a row in the 355 econo late model division.

Yoder started second in the field and after a rough start to the 15-lap main that saw several caution flags unfurl early, he pulled away to a large margin for the win.

Eric Irving rode home second followed by Ralph Morgan Jr., Tim Krape and Troy Miller.

Twin heats went to Bill Henney and Yoder.

Defending track champion Jason Zook held off the charges of Deron Henry to claim the xtreme stock feature event race.

Henry started seventh but could only advance to second.

Bob Bussey raced home third followed by Craig Dodson and Pete Leister.

McINTYRE SCORES CAREER THIRD IN LINCOLN 410 SPRINT CAR MAIN;

Strickler claims first career 358 sprint car win; Montgomery picks up third career Lincoln win in Central PA Legends

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 4/26/2014 – Gerard McIntyre, Jr. came from seventh starting spot to claim the 25-lap 410 sprint car feature win at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

McIntyre, who was timed fastest in warm-ups and won the first heat, was fast all night, advancing to fourth by the end of the third lap and grabbed the race lead from polesitter and race-long leader Matt Boland as the two passed under the flagstand to complete lap eight.

“We were real good, said McIntyre upon exiting his Weaver’s Body Shop/NAPA Auto Parts #16 in victory lane, “I want to say thanks to Fred (Putney) for watering the top there…and I want to thank everyone else for not going there.”

The $3,200 win was McIntyre’s second of the season, and first of the year in the Pigeon Hills. And was quite a turnaround from the week before.

“We had some motor problems last week, and Dad worked real hard on the car all week and got it figured out,” said McIntyre, “We had a real good race car there at the beginning, and it started to get a little loose toward the end. The track got rubbered up. I don’t know if anyone was still up top, but I couldn’t run up there anymore.

Actually, Brian Montieth was, putting on his normal charge late to come from 16th starting spot to finish third. With only one caution flag (for Mike Bittinger, who slowed to a stop on lap 18), Montieth simply ran out of time. He was on the back bumper of second-place Steve Owings at the checkered.

“I felt pretty secure there at the end. I was probably being a little conservative. We have a small motor in the car tonight, and it just hooks up real well here,” said McIntyre, “I can’t ask for anything better than this. Coming off the year we had last year…to start to year like this…I never thought we’d be working on win number three already.”

It’s was McIntyre’s third career win at Lincoln, and he became the fifth different winner in six events in the Pigeon Hills this year.

Round out the top five were Tyler Ross and Boland. Sixth through tenth were Freddie Rahmer, Billy Dietrich, Kevin Nagy, Austin Hogue, and Jim Siegel.

Heats for the 28 410 sprinters were won by McIntyre, Siegel, and Nagy, with Shane Hoff winning the consolation.

West York’s Mark Strickler started third and was scored the leader of every lap in claiming his first career 358 sprint car win.

Although he dominated the first 19 laps, a last-lap caution put 11th starting and 2013 track champ Niki Young on his back bumper for a one-lap shootout. Strickler stuck to the bottom and Young bobbled in turn two, ensuring Strickler’s .91-second win.

Young, Mike Bittinger (driving the Michael Markey #31), rookie Tyler Esh, and Chandler Leiby completed the top five, with Chase Dietz, C.J. Tracy, Doug Hammaker, Matt Findley, and 19th-starting Jeff Halligan rounding out the top ten.

Heats for the 26 358 sprinters were won by Bittinger, Dietz, and Young, with Halligan winning the consolation.

York’s Lucas Montgomery scored his third career Lincoln win in the 15-lap Central PA Legends feature. Montgomery started fourth and was scored the leader of a three-wide battle on the first lap. He led every lap thereafter, despite race-long pressure from 2013 Legends tour champion Bob Stough, who challenged the Impressive Signs #15 in every set of turns.

Montgomery’s win came on his own sponsor’s night. Stough settled for second, with Scott Haudeshell catching Scott Gobrecht on the final straightaway for third. Completing the top five was Mason Chaney.

Heats for the 28 Legends were won by Blaine Leppo, Haudeshell, and Montgomery, with Chad Ernst winning the consolation.

Next Saturday, Lincoln will host the 11th Annual Weldon Sterner Memorial for 410 sprint cars, along with the 358 sprints and All-American Outlaws. Time trials will begin at 7:30 p.m., with gates opening at 5:30 p.m.

Invaders on hand to battle will be travelers like Dale Blaney, Tim Shaffer, Danny Holtgraver, Chad Kemenah and Jac Haudenshild to battle the likes of locals Lance Dewease, Doug Esh, Greg Hodnett, Danny Dietrich and more.

The event will pit the local 410 sprint stars known as the Pennsylvania Posse against the All Stars Circuit of Champions Sprints drivers in a 29-lap, $10,000 to win, $100 to lead a lap main event that even pays $500 to start.

Adult general admission for the show is set at just $22 with students ages 12 – 18 admitted for JUST $5.

Fans attending will have a fleeting opportunity to purchase a special commemorative Bob Weikert Memorial Port Royal Speedway shirt as produced by the Weikert family.

The shirts will be available on speedway grounds during the night in a very limited quantity.

Weikerts Livestock will be giving the first 400 fans entering the grandstand a free Weikert hat or can cooler. PLUS, 20 five-pound packages of prime beef will also be given away to general admission fans and five girls and five boys bicycles will be given away to kids ages 11 and under.

Each lap of the Weikert feature will pay $100 to lead with heats paying $50 to win courtesy of Packers Concessions and fast time will pay at least $400 in memory of Port Royal Weikert fan Raymond Jacobs.

Bob Weikert was one of the most prosperous and prolific sprint car owners to ever grace the sport at Port Royal, in the region and across the nation and the Port Royal Weikert Memorial has become a keystone of the Port Royal and Central Pennsylvania yearly schedule.

Last year thousands flocked to the speedway to witness the event that saw three race leaders including Brad Sweet, Tim Shaffer and finally Doug Esh who took the victory.

Williams Grove Hosts All Stars Sprints And ARDC Midgets This Week

4/20/14

Mechanicsburg – The All Star Circuit of Champions Sprints are set to compete at Williams Grove Speedway this Friday, April 25 at 7:30 pm.

The event will be the first attack of the year on the track by an invading circuit set to do battle with the Pennsylvania Posse sprint stars.

The All Stars and the Posse will compete in a 30-lap main event paying $5,000 to win.

The ARDC Midgets are also on the card.

The race will be the second leg of the 2014 Diamond Series at the track after xxx took last week’s Tommy Hinnershitz Memorial Spring Classic event to kick off this year’s series.

Down through history, the Williams Grove regulars have remained stalwart defenders of any attack on the oval’s winner’s circle by the invaders.

No All Star has ever won an All Star sanctioned race at Williams Grove Speedway.

The first All Star event ever contested at the historic oval back in 1970 was won by Bobbie Adamson.

Last year’s All Stars shows at the track were taken by Posse drivers Don Kreitz Jr and Danny Dietrich.

No driver has beaten the All Stars more often at the track over the decades than Lance Dewease, who has bested the band a total of five times.

Single wins of note through the years have come with an upset by Barry Camp, a close race to the finish for Jim Siegel and a romp by Steve Buckwalter.

Time trials will set the starting grids for the April 25 All Stars racing program.

Drivers frequenting the All Stars circuit this season include perennial champions Tim Shaffer and Dale Blaney, Jac Haudenschild, Chad Kemenah, Caleb Helms, Trey Gustin and Danny Holtgraver.

The All Stars will return to the track for a second 2014 race date on June 13.

The Williams Grove Speedway Saturday Series races begin on April 26 with the Super Sportsman, 358 late models and street stocks on the program at 6:30 pm.

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

UPCOMING SHOW:

Sat., April 26, 2014 (7 PM) - 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints, and Central PA Legends

ALAN KRIMES WINS SPRINT SPRING CHAMPIONSHIP AT LINCOLN SPEEDWAY FOR SECOND WIN IN-A-ROW;

Kevin Nouse Wins Second In-a-row in 358 Sprints;

15 Year Old Female Racer Michelle Walls Wins Career First in Street Stocks

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 4/19/2014 – Alan Krimes summed it up best in victory lane Saturday night at Lincoln Speedway.

“I don’t know if I won that race or just didn’t lose it,” said Krimes after climbing from his Midnight Antiques, Conestoga Valley Garage, Krimes Racing Engines No. 87. Sprinter in victory lane following his win in the 30-lap 410 Sprint car Spring Championship.

It was a race that saw several red flags and in one lap that saw nine of the top 10 running cars dropping from contention due to various reasons. But Krimes missed all of the crashes and won the battle of attrition to score his second straight victory in as many weeks and upped his career total to 15 in the Pigeon Hills.

“I thought it was going to be pretty tough starting back there tonight because I knew the best we could start was 12th and ended up starting 13tth,” said Krimes. “Then everybody started dropping out and I thought we might not have to pass any cars tonight if they all keep dropping out.”

All of the craziness started on lap five when Steve Owings spun, collecting Nathan Berwager, and Brian Montieth who flipped. Aaron Ott also flipped in turn three after a reported stuck throttle.

On the restart, Tim Wagaman and Adam Wilt tangled collecting point leader Danny Dietrich, who did everything but flip on the front stretch.

Second-place running Billy Dietrich then stopped on the next restart which made him the ninth car inside the top 10 to drop out. That left only Will Rose, who had led the race from the green flag, the lone top 10 car on the track.

When the dust settled, Krimes, Jim Siegel, Brent Marks and Robbie Kendall all entered the top five with Krimes storming by Rose to take the lead with six laps complete.

Krimes continued to lead Siegel as the pair closed on lapped traffic when Tyler Ross and Wilt tangled in turn three right in front of the leaders. Siegel took evasive action to miss the incident but Marks wasn’t as lucky and spun into Wilt.

Montieth advanced through the field after his flip to move into the top five on lap 18 and then took fourth on the next circuit. But that would be as far as Montieth, the four-time track champion, would make it as Krimes held off Siegel in heavy lapped traffic over the final few laps to pick up the win.

“We made a few changes under that one red and freed the car up a little bit but we could have been better,” said the Denver driver after earning the $4,000 paycheck. “Our car has been real good every time out it seems so we’re hoping for a good season. I don’t know that I’ve ever won two in-a-row, and like I said, I don’t know that we would have won tonight if everyone wouldn’t have had problems so we got lucky.”

Siegel finished in the runner-up spot ahead of Kendall, Montieth and Gerard McIntyre, Jr.

Kevin Nagy crossed in sixth with Freddie Rahmer getting his best career finish in seventh over Danny Dietrich, Austin Hogue and Cory Haas.

Sprint car heat races were won by Siegel, Dietrich and Ott with Marks topping the consolation for the 29 car field.

Kevin Nouse raced his way from his 12th starting spot to score an impressive win in the 20-lap feature for his second win in-a-row at Lincoln in 358 Sprint car action.

The Mechanicsburg driver worked his way into second spot by lap eight and made the race winning move by Jay Galloway on the 15th lap. From there Nouse drove away to fourth career win in the Pigeon Hills.

Nouse did have several close calls during the feature before bringing his Bulls-Eye Express, McKeehan Motorsports No. 4R sprinter to victory lane.

Galloway finished second followed by Brian Allman, Chase Dietz and Chandler Leiby with Matt Campbell, Matt Findley, Brie Hershey, Mike Bittinger and Zach Eucalano rounding out the top 10 finishers.

Heats for the 27 358 sprint cars were won by Rick Horn, Nouse and Dietz with Tyler Esh topping the consolation.

At the age of just 15, lady racer Michelle Walls captured his first ever street stock feature win in the only appearance of the season by the division this season at Lincoln.

The Gettysburg driver started fourth and took the lead on the 12th lap from Gary Potts and held on over the final eight laps in the win over Potts, Walt Lemmon, Bob Scott, Jr. and Chris Heller.

Street stock heat wins went to Gary Potts and Bob Scott, Jr.. There were 12 cars pitside.

Next Saturday, April 26th, it will be another three-division show as the Lawrence Chevrolet 410 Sprinters will be joined by the 358 Sprints, and Central PA Legends. Racing gets underway at 7 PM, with gates opening at 5 PM.

MARK SMITH DOMINATES IN 67TH URC SPRINT CAR SEASON OPENER; CAMPBELL “COMES HOME” FOR 45TH CAREER LATE MODEL VICTORY; MITCH & BISSINGER REPEAT IN PRO STOCKS & ROADRUNNERS

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Mark Smith of Sunbury took advantage of his pole starting position by wiring the field for his first victory of the season in Saturday night’s 67th United Racing Company (URC) 360 sprint car season opener at Selinsgrove Speedway.

Smith was awarded the pole position in the 25-lap feature by Mike Walter of Selinsgrove in the “revenge draw,” which determined the first nine starting positions in the 24-car field. Smith was behind the wheel of the Mach 1 Chassis house-car for the $2,500 win, which was his sixth career in 358-360 sprint car competition at the track.

Saturday night was the first of six race dates that will be sanctioned by URC at Selinsgrove in 2014. The next URC race at the track will be the Jack Gunn Memorial Challenge Race at 7 p.m. Saturday, May 10.

Steve Campbell of Danville inherited the lead on lap seven from Jeff Rine of Danville and drove to his first win of the season and the 45th of his career in the 25-lap super late model feature. Campbell, who referred to Selinsgrove Speedway as his “home track” in Victory Lane, owns a combined 81 career victories at the speedway.

Brad Mitch of McClure and Keith Bissinger of Orangeville repeated wins in the 15-lap pro stock and 12-lap roadrunner features, respectively.

Selinsgrove Speedway will present a four division show of 358-360 sprint cars, late models, pro stocks, and roadrunners at 7 p.m. Saturday, April 26, on Family Night, featuring $20 general admission for immediate families (which will include parents and students ages 17 and under with student IDs).

On the initial start of the sprint car feature, 14th-place starter Colby Womer slammed the second turn wall and escaped injury. When the race restarted, polesitter Mark Smith powered into the lead with third-place starter Josh Weller racing in second.

After five laps, Smith held a sizeable lead over Weller, second-place starter Ryan Kissinger, eighth-place starter Davie Franek, and 10th-place starter Robbie Stillwaggon. By lap 10, Smith began to encounter slower traffic as the race for third intensified between Kissinger and Stillwaggon. Two laps later, after securing third, Stillwaggon rocketed by Weller for the runner-up position.

A double-file restart on lap 18 placed Smith and Stillwaggon side-by-side on the front row. When the race resumed, Smith was challenged by Stillwaggon for the lead to no avail. At the checkered flag, Smith won the race by just .91 of a second over Stillwaggon, Kissinger, Franek, and 11th-place starter Larry Kelleher.

Jeff Rine started on the front row for the late model feature and steered into the early lead over polesitter Bryan Bernheisel. At the completion of the first lap, fourth-place starter Steve Campbell horsepowered his way into the runner-up position.

With a commanding lead, Rine was forced to withdraw from the race on lap six when his car reportedly developed driveline issues. Campbell inherited the lead at Rine’s expense and never looked back.

On a lap 12 restart, Campbell set the pace while a torrid battle for second unfolded behind him between Bernheisel, third-place starter Ken Trevitz, sixth-place starter Jim Yoder, and fifth-place starter Chad Hollenbeck.

With five laps remaining, 11th-place starter Hayes Mattern advanced to fifth. In the final laps, Trevitz and Yoder began to erase Campbell’s lead margin. At the checkered flag, Campbell was victorious by just 1.06 seconds over Trevitz, Bernheisel, Yoder, and Mattern.

Polesitter Andrew Shoop led the first four laps of the pro stock feature until he drifted into the high lane in turn two and allowed third-place starter Brad Mitch to power underneath him for the lead. Mitch quickly opened up a comfortable lead over Shoop, second-place starter Brandon Moser, and fourth-place starter Derrick Garman.

At the midway point, Garman began to show a lot of speed and soon powered into the runner-up position with his sights set on Mitch. In the final laps of the race, Garman began to close in on Mitch but ran out of the time. At the finish, Mitch was victorious by one second over Garman, Shoop, eighth-place starter Nathan Long, and sixth-place starter Kyle Bachman.

Outside front row starter John Schoch stormed into the lead in the roadrunner feature with fourth-place starter and the previous week’s winner Keith Bissinger in pursuit. On the second circuit, Bissinger took command of the field with an inside pass in turn two. At the same time, eighth-place starter John Fowler Jr. advanced to third.

Bissinger held a strong lead until a last-lap chase to the checkered flag when he reportedly started to sense mechanical issues with his race car. At the finish, Bissinger was victorious by a mere .69 of a second over Schoch, Fowler, Curtis Lawton, and defending champion Brian Johnson.

Port Royal Speedway The Only Place To See Super Sprints And Super Lates Every Saturday Night

Blaney Invades And Wins Port Royal, Preps For Weikert Memorial Next Week

Schadel Breaks Late Model Dry Spell, Braim Gets 305 Sprints

4/19/14

Port Royal – There’s something about Easter Saturday at Port Royal Speedway that suits the racing Blaney brothers.

Last year on Easter eve it was Dave Blaney invading and winning in the 410-sprint division at the oval and this year it was his brother Dale who pulled of the same feat, taking Saturday night’s 25-lap sprint main with an impressive performance through traffic.

Herndon’s Brett Schadel broke a more than year long dry spell in the late model division by beating Mike Lupfer to the finish line while Turbotville’s John Braim scored his first career win at Port Royal in the 305 sprint division.

Blaney of Hartford, Oh., who recently notched his 100th career All Star Circuit of Champions sprint car circuit victory, showed up at Port Royal Saturday night in order to prepare for next Saturday’s ASCoC Bob Weikert Memorial and he couldn’t get more prepared.

He lined up on the pole for the start of the 25-lap feature and watched as Justin Barger of Montrose, Ny., led the first circuit before he took over.

And from there Blaney began an assault on the field in the non-stop event that saw him move into lapped traffic on the seventh tour.

Greg Hodnett, who started eighth in the field, would eventually end up second, taking over the spot from Barger with five laps to go.

But by the time he had secured the spot, Blaney was in the middle of the backstretch as he crossed the start -finish line on the frontstretch.

Hodnett was unable to bite into Blaney’s massive lead before the finish however, instead riding home second by 6.392 seconds.

Barger finished a solid third.

Sixth starter Lucas Wolfe gained late in the race to end up fourth with Mike Wagner finishing fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to 12th starter Rick Lafferty, Doug Esh, Blane Heimbach, Dave Blaney and Chad Layton

The win was the second of Blaney’s career at Port Royal.

Heats for the 25-car field went to Barger, Layton and Wagner.

Schadel had the pole for the 20-lap late model main and allowed Matt Parks to lead the first lap before driving into command.

Shortly after getting the lead his pace was slowed however with two laps down.

Another caution flag with five down found Mike Lupfer restarting second.

Schadel was unshakable during the balance of the event, even upon entering lapped traffic with three laps to go.

It was about the same time that he was forced to forsake his chosen bottom groove as he worked around the backmarkers but even then Lupfer was unable to close for the win.

Schadel scored his fourth career victory at Port Royal and his first since September, 2012.

Lupfer got second by .841 seconds.

Justin Kann drove from seventh to third at the finish followed by Eric Zembower and Parks.

Sixth through 10th went to Rance Garlock, Tim Smith Jr., Scott Haus, Mitch Hack and Nick Dickson.

Heats for the 23-car field went to Dustin Hoffman, Kann and Parks.

Braim wired the field for the 20-lap 305 sprint feature win and the third of his overall career.

A restart on the eighth lap placed prior winner Tyler Bear on Braim’s tail for the return to action but a battle never developed with Braim instead pulling away during the late stages.

Bear was second with seventh starter Kody Lehman finishing in third followed by Jeff Miller Jr., and 16th starter Mike Wagner II.

Sixth through 10th went to Erin Statler, Jake Waters, Scott Ellerman, Eric Parker and Reed Thompson.

Heats for the 32 cars in attendance were taken by Lehman, Miller Jr., Brandon Hetrick and Bear.

The consolation went to Wayne Dadetto.

Esh Wins Williams Grove Tommy Classic For Heckman, Herr Steals Sportsman

4/18/14

Mechanicsburg – Doug Esh of Lancaster wired the field for a $7,500 payday in Friday night’s 30-lap Tommy Hinnershitz Memorial Spring Classic for sprint cars at Williams Grove Speedway.

But his flag to flag performance wasn’t quite as easy as it may sound.

Esh started second in the event that saw only one caution period, on just the second lap.

Esh outgunned polesitter Pat Cannon to lead the first lap before the yellow appeared and a torrid pace unfolded on the restart.

During the first 10 laps, 10th starter Dave Blaney surged forward, taking over fourth on the fourth tour before moving into third with 12 laps down.

Esh entered the rear of the field with 11 laps away and found fifth starter Brian Montieth chasing him in second after finally getting by Cannon for the spot a lap earlier.

Through heavy lapped traffic Esh preserved his lead all the while with Montieth bearing down on him for the win as the race moved past the halfway point.

Esh escaped disaster on the 16th tour and again on the 18th lap after contact with lapped cars, Chad Layton first and then Brent Marks.

And then just as he settled down after the Marks incident, Montieth pounced to Esh’s inside as the pair entered the first corner.

But just as Montieth went for the kill and massive slider to briefly take control, his No. 21 mount puffed a cloud of blue smoke and with that the Phoenixville racers chances were over for the victory.

Montieth then pulled pitside and Esh streaked away to the victory, his first in the prestigious event and first at the track since August, 2011.

His margin was that of some six seconds over the rest of the field.

The win was also a Williams Grove career first for car owner Gary and Linda Heckman.

Cannon was second followed by Stevie Smith, Greg Hodnett and Dave Blaney.

Sixth through 10th went to Lucas Wolfe, Alan Krimes, Trey Starks, Adam Wilt and Curt Michael.

Heats for the 32-car field went to Esh, Lance Dewease, Brent Marks and Gerard McIntyre Jr.

The consolation went to Hodnett, who also set fast time in qualification with a lap of 16.488 seconds.

Frankie Herr finally wrestled the lead away from Duaine Smith as the pair raced through the second corner on the final lap of the 20-lap super sportsman feature event.

Smith had led from the outset with Herr moving into second on the eighth tour.

During the final 10 laps, Herr relentlesstly pursued Smith for the lead with Smith performing flawlessly and holding Herr at bay despite repeated attempts by the champion to take control.

But the pressure was too much on the final lap as Herr made an outside whip past Smith as the pair raced onto the backstretch for the final time.

Smith settled for second followed by Scott Geesey, Chad Criswell and Dave Berkheimer.

McCLELLAND GOES FROM LAST TO FIRST TO TAKE TRAIL-WAY 358 SPRINT OPENER;

GENE KNAUB MAKES LAST LAP PASS TO CLAIM 358 LATE MODEL WIN;

BILL DIEHL, MATT CHRONISTER BEST OF LEGENDS, LIMITED STOCKS

Hanover, PA (04/18/14) – Brad McClelland showed everyone Friday night why he’s the all-time winner at Trail-Way Speedway, coming from the back to win the season opener for 358 sprint cars.

McClelland scratched from his qualifying event after blowing a motor in warm-ups. His team returned home to grab a second car, and returned in time for McClelland to tag the rear of the 10-car field for the start of the feature.

It took him just 11 laps to take the lead, sliding under Randy Whisler for the front spot in turn four.

“I want to praise the crew for getting the car ready,” said McClelland in victory lane, “They got it back together just in time. I don’t know what happened to Robbie (Kendall). He would have been hard to beat.”

Kendall led the first nine laps from his outside front row starting spot before he dove to the infield with motor problems during a caution flag for Brent Rumberger, who spun into the infield after contact with Matt Campbell on the backstretch.

Whisler assumed the lead for the restart and led one lap before yielding to McClelland.

Once in front, the Don Beard Racing Engines/Rucker Computer Solutions/Littlestown Auto Care drove away from the field to a 5.82-second win over Whisler, with Seth Kearchner, Campbell, and Zach Euculano completing the top five.

Heats for the ten 358 sprinters were won by Kendall and Dwight Leppo.

Dover’s Gene Knaub drove under polesitter Kyle Lear in turn two of the final lap to claim the win in the Precise Racing Products/Hoosier Tire Mid-Atlantic 358 late model feature.

Although Lear started on the pole, outside front row starter Travis Mease led the first four laps before Lear took the lead. Lear led until Knaub’s last-lap pass.

Lear settled for second, with Mease, Cam Ziegler, and hard-charger Dominic Defino (who started 10th) completing the top five.

Heats for the 13 “358” late models were won by Knaub and Lear.

Tenth-starting Bill Diehl became the fourth different leader by passing Lucas Montgomery on lap 13 to score the win in the 20-lap Central PA Legends feature.

Chad Earnst started outside row one and led the first three laps before Scott Gobrecht took the lead on lap four.

Montgomery caught Gobrecht on lap seven, just before Gobrecht was involved in a tangle with Earnst while for second in turns one and two, ending the night for both drivers.

Three laps after Diehl took the lead, Montgomery was rear-ended by C.J. Quirk. Montgomery did a “360” and kept going, but lost several spots. Quirk was penalized for rough-riding at the end of the event, and was placed behind Montgomery at the finish.

Bob Stough ran near the front the entire way and finished second, with Chris McKinney, Jacob Feltch, and Richard Miller rounding out the top five. Final scoring placed Montgomery and Quirk sixth and seventh.

Heats for the 23 Legends were won by Diehl, Travis McClelland, and Richard Miller.

Matt Chronister took the lead from polesitter Ricky Weaver, Jr. on lap three and won the non-stop 15-lap limited stock feature.

Tom Senseney started second and ran there every lap but the second. After losing the second spot to Chronister on lap two, he caught Weaver for the runner-up spot on lap three.

Jeff Foster, Terry Hartlaub, and Cory Weishaar completed the top five.

Heats for the 17 limited stocks were won by Robert Nicklow and Foster.

Next Friday (4/25), Trail-Way will host the 358 Sprint Cars, Limited Stocks, Street Stocks, and 600cc Micro Sprints. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. and racing begins at 7:30 p.m.

Kreitz Returns to Victory at SSP on Sunday Night

Newberrytown, PA (April 13, 2014) – Donnie Kreitz of Sinking Springs took the victory in the 5th Annual Sprint Car Spring Classic at the Susquehanna Speedway Park on Sunday night. Tyler Ross of Lincoln University collected the 358 Sprint Car 20 lapper.

By virtue of winning his heat race and pulling the “no inversion” pill, Blaine Heimbach took the early lead of the 410 Sprint Car 25-lapper. As Heimbach set the pace of the race, with Lance Dewease and Danny Hotgraver in tow, Donnie Kreitz bagan picking of positions from his seventh place starting spot. On lap 7, Kreitz moved past Holtgraver to claim third. At the midway point, Kreitz moved past Dewease to claim the runner-up spot. A caution flag on lap 14 negated the lead that Heimbach had built. With Krietz restarting on Heimbach’s rear bumper, Heimbach took off as the green flag flew.

On lap 18, Kreitz slid in front of Heimbach coming out of turn 4 to take the lead. However, Heimbach would not go away as he pursued Kreitz into lap traffic as the laps wound down. With two laps to go, Heimbach made his move going into three and four but was unable to complete the pass as the lapped car slid up in front of him, blocking him from making the pass. Kreitz went on to take the victory over Heimbach with Lance Dewease finishing third. This was Kreitz’s 30th career SSP victory putting him five wins away from all-time open wheel SSP feature win leader Johnny Mackison Sr. at 35 wins. Out-of-staters Trey Starks and Danny Holtgraver finished fourth and fifth respectively. Heat race wins went to Heimbach, Dewease and Zearfoss.

In the 358 Sprint Car night cap, Chandler Leiby took the lead from the front row. Kevin Nouse immediately began to challenge from the runner-up spot after starting fourth. Nouse took over the top spot on the third circuit. As a wild battle ensued for the lead, Leiby regained the lead with Brad McClelland close behind. Nouse retired from the race on lap 11 when the caution flag flew. Tyler Ross made it a three car battle for the lead midway through the race. With five to go, Ross claimed the runner-up spot and passed Leiby with two to go to take the lead. Ross went on to collect the feature victory over McClelland in second and Leiby had to settle for a strong third place finish. Brock Zerafoss, who finished 7th in the 410 Sprint Car main event, came home fourth in the 358 Sprint Car feature. Scott Fisher rounded out the top five. McClelland and Nouse were the heat race winners.

Racing action returns to the Big Track at SSP on Sunday night, April 19 when Figure 8 Racing returns to SSP along with the Late Models, Street Stocks, Xtreme Stocks, Road Warriors, Mini Vans/Jr. Road Warriors and the PENNMAR Vintage Cars. The start time for racing is 6:00 p.m.

The 410 Sprint Cars will return to SSP on Sunday, May 4 along with the Late Models and Sidewinder Sprint Cars. The start time is 7:00 p.m. for the event.

Weikert Pilots Dietrich, Pitzer And Krautheim Greet Fans At Weikert Race, No. 29 Cars Also On Display At Port Royal April 26 All Stars Event

4/13/14

Port Royal – Fans arriving for the April 26 Bob Weikert Memorial at Port Royal Speedway will be able to meet and greet a trio of Weikert No. 29 pilots both past and present and also take in a piece of history on display.

Signing autographs from approximately 5 pm until 6:15 pm behind the grandstand will be Danny Dietrich, Paul Pitzer and Len Krautheim III.

On display with the drivers will be Dietrich’s replica Weikert’s Livestock No. 29 sprint car, which he will campaign in the prestigious event.

Also on display will be a restored No. 29 sprinter as throttled by Pitzer in the 1970’s known as “Old Blue.”

Affectionately known to many as “Captain Crunch” during his career, a moniker earned by his win-it or wreck-it driving approach, Pitzer is a four –time Port Royal winner in his career and he was the pilot of the restored mount at its retirement.

But the Trevis-built car is the same Weikert machine that famed pilot Kenny Weld used to claim Weikert victory in both the 1972 and 1973 Knoxville Nationals.

Krautheim holds the distinction of being the final driver to pilot the Weikert No. 29 to a Port Royal victory.

He led all 25 laps on May 21, 1994 to record the checkered flag.

General admission gates for the 2014 All Star Bob Weikert Memorial at Port Royal Speedway will open at 4 pm on April 26 with racing slated for 7 pm.

Adult general admission will be just $22 with youth ages 12 – 18 priced at JUST $5.

April 26 Port All Star Weikert Memorial Offers $34,000 Purse And Plenty More!

Over $3,000 in contingency cash up for grabs to fast timer, lap leaders, heat winners.

NSCHoF awards jackets to winners

4/13/14

Port Royal –Not only will the April 26 Bob Weikert Memorial at Port Royal speedway boast a feature purse in excess of $34,000, but it has plenty of contingency cash to go around as well.

Sanctioned by the All Stars Circuit of Champions Sprints, the 29-lap main event will pay $10,000 to win and $500 just to start.

However each lap of the 29-lapper, the distance in honor of the famed Weikert’s Livestock No. 29 sprint car, will pay $100 to lead courtesy of the Weikert’s family of lap sponsors.

Fast time of the night will receive a minimum of $300 in honor of late Port Royal and Weikert fan Raymond Jacobs. Jacobs’ son will present the award.

And each heat will pay $50 to win as sponsored by Packers Concessions.

The memorial winner himself, the winning car owner and mechanic will receive certificates for beautifully embroidered National Sprint Car Hall of Fame jackets courtesy of the NSCHoF of which Bob Weikert was an inductee.

Run in honor of late hall of fame sprint car owner, the Weikert Memorial is one of the shining lights of both the Port Royal and All Stars seasons.

The 2014 race was taken by Doug Esh of Lancaster who totaled up some $12,200 for his night of effort.

Esh’s run to the win was far from easy, needing first to pass a pair of previous race leaders, Brad Sweet of Grass Valley, Calif., and Tim Shaffer of Aliquippa, before he got control for the victory.

Driving a replica Weikert No. 29 sprint car, Logan Schuchart set a new one-lap track record in last year’s event.

The Weikert Memorial Port Royal All Star invasion promises to be and in fact will be one of the richest events the circuit offers throughout its 2014 campaign.

The All Stars return to Port Royal Speedway again in early September for the two-day, 47th annual Tuscarora 50 races as part of the Juniata County Fair.

General admission gates for the 2014 All Star Bob Weikert Memorial at Port Royal Speedway will open at 4 pm on April 26 with racing slated for 7 pm.

Big Money Tommy Hinnershitz Spring Classic For Sprints This Week At Williams Grove

Memorial event now pays $7,500 to win with purse of over $30,000 up for grabs

4/13/14

Mechanicsburg – The Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint cars will compete in their first big event of the season at Williams Grove Speedway this Friday, April 18 at 7:30 pm when the 2014 Diamond Series kicks off with the running of the high-dollar Tommy Hinnershitz Memorial Spring Classic.

Fireworks celebrating the oval’s 75th season of existence will also be on the card along with racing action featuring the super sportsman.

The prestigious 30-lap Tommy Classic event will pay $7,500 to win out of a total purse of more than $30,000 with time trials setting the heat and feature starting grids.

The winners share has been increased from $6,000 to $7,500 for the Tommy race thanks to a generous sponsor and historian from the Eastern Museum of Motor Racing who intends the contribution to honor Hinnershitz, the man who won the first auto race at the track in 1939 during this 75th anniversary season at Williams Grove.

Formerly known as the Early Bird Championship, The Tommy Spring Classic took its name in 2007, now run in honor of the winner of the first ever motor racing main event at Williams Grove Speedway back in 1939.

An eventual Hall of Fame driver, Hinnershitz of Oley went on to win the track title that year and again in 1949 and 1952.

Winners of the event since taking the Hinnershitz name have been: Craig Keel, 2007; Brian Leppo, 2008; Lance Dewease, 2009; and Layton, 2010, 2012.

The event was lost to rain in 2011 and last season, thus making Layton the reigning Tommy champion.

The Tommy Classic is also the first date of the 2014 Diamond Series at Williams Grove.

Don Kreitz Jr. is the defending series champion over the batch of races that carries its own point standings and season payoff.

Another Diamond Series event comes up the following week, April 25 with the first appearance of the season by the All Star Circuit of Champions Sprints at Williams Grove Speedway.

The Williams Grove Speedway Saturday Series races begin on April 26 with the Super Sportsman, 358 late models and street stocks on the program at 6:30 pm.

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

STUTTS HOLDS OFF CHALLENGES FOR ESS 360 SPRINT CAR SEASON OPENER; RINE, MITCH & BISSINGER TAKE STOCK CAR VICTORIES

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – TJ Stutts of Liverpool held off numerous challenges to score the 30-lap Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprint (ESS) season opener for 360 sprint cars sponsored by Mach 1 Chassis Saturday night at Selinsgrove Speedway.

Stutts, who has won three of the last four ESS-sanctioned races at Selinsgrove, collected $3,000 for his 18th career victory at the track in 358-360 sprint car competition driving the Mountain View Travel/Mach 1 Chassis No. 23.

Steve Poirier of Quebec was the night’s Fast Tees Fast Qualifier over the 26-car field with a lap time of 17.384 seconds.

Defending champion Jeff Rine of Danville wired the field for his 86th career feature win at Selinsgrove in the 25-lap late model season opener.

Brad Mitch of McClure, last year’s leading pro stock feature winner, scored his 10th career victory in the division’s 15-lap main event, while Keith Bissinger of Orangeville returned to the roadrunner class and scored his 41st career victory in the 12-lap feature.

Selinsgrove Speedway will present the first of six races this season sanctioned by the United Racing Company (URC) 360 sprint cars plus late models, pro stocks, and roadrunners at 6 p.m. Saturday, April 19. Track gates will open at 4 p.m.

The first lap of the 360 sprint car feature produced a few hair-raising moments as polesitter Mike Walter took the lead and fourth-place starter TJ Stutts and sixth-place starter Mark Smith stormed into the second and third positions, respectively. Pat Cannon, who started second, held down the fourth position for most of the event.

The race’s first caution flag unfurled on lap four when Brian Carber’s No. 8C sprinter spun in turn two. On the lap five restart, Walter and Stutts see-sawed for the front spot on the first of several occasions during the 30-lap contest, but it was Stutts who came away with the lead using the inside lane off turn four.

On a lap six restart, ninth-place starter Derek Locke advanced to fifth behind Stutts, Walter, Smith, and Cannon. On lap eight, the red flag waved when Steve Collins and Ryan Kissinger crashed in turn three. Both drivers walked away without injury.

When the race resumed, a war on wheels unfolded at the front of the pack. By the midway point, the race for the lead heated up between Stutts and Walter while the battle for third also escalated between Smith and Cannon.

Davie Franek, who started 12th, showed a lot of speed in the second half of the race and was racing eighth when his car rolled to a stop on lap 19. On the final restart on lap 22, Smith secured the second position and started to track down Stutts at the front the pack. At the checkered flag, Stutts was victorious by three seconds over Smith, Walter, Cannon, and 10th-place starter Brock Zearfoss.

Jeff Rine drew the pole position for the start the late model main event and powered into the lead at the drop of the green flag. The race was stopped on the first lap for a hard crash on the backstretch involving Chad Davis, Eric Hons, Dave Brouse Sr., and Chad Hollenbeck, whose car flipped upside down. All drivers escaped injury.

When the race resumed, Rine quickly checked out from the field despite the subsequent restarts. Second-place starter Tony Adams held down the runner up position while fourth-place starter Steve Campbell raced fourth. In the early laps of the race, fifth-place starter Jim Yoder closed in on Campbell in a race for the third spot.

On the eighth circuit, Yoder advanced to third and started to reel in Adams in the race for second. At the halfway point, Rine was leading Adams, Yoder, ninth-place starter Jim Bernheisel, and Campbell. Yoder powered into the runner up position on lap 17 and attempted to catch Rine.

The final caution flag unfurled on lap 18, regrouping the field for a seven-lap shootout. Rine held the field at bay and posted a convincing 4.9-second margin of victory over Yoder, eighth-place starter Bryan Bernheisel, Adams, and J. Bernheisel.

Third-place starter Brad Mitch rocketed into the lead at the start of the pro stock feature. Mitch was followed by last year’s pro stock Rookie of the Year and second-place starter Brandon Moser for the first two laps until Moser’s strong run came to an end on lap three.

Polesitter Peanut Heintzelman inherited the runner-up position with 11th-place starter Kyle Bachman in the third spot for the restart. Bachman took over second on lap five and attempted to reel in Mitch to no avail. At the finish, Mitch took the checkered flag over Bachman. In the post-race inspection, however, Bachman’s and Nathan Long’s cars were disqualified for rev-limiter infractions. Those penalties placed Heintzelman, Tommy Slanker, Adam Campbell, and Andrew Shoop in the top five spots behind Mitch.

Second-place starter Bob Bussey took the early lead in the roadrunner feature and was chased by fourth-place starter Keith Bissinger for the first four laps. On the fifth circuit, Bissinger made the winning pass by Bussey in the second turn.

Late in the race, polesitter John Fowler Jr. made a charge into second as sixth-place starter Curtis Lawton pulled into the third position. At the finish, Bissinger was victorious by a mere .61 of a second over Fowler, Lawton, Dave Kamp, and Jeremy Kline.

Port Royal Speedway The Only Place To See Super Sprints And Super Lates Every Saturday Night

Lafferty, Dickson And Yoder Claim Port Royal Features

Over $1,000 raised for American Cancer Society on Race To Cure Cancer Night

4/12/14

Port Royal – Rick Lafferty, 410 sprints; Nick Dickson, super late models; and Andrew Yoder, Middleburg; scored the main events on Race To Cure Cancer Night at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday.

During intermission, the speedway presented the American Cancer Society with a check for $682 comprised of contributions from the night’s ticket sales while another $300 was raised from the auction of an autographed five-gallon fuel jug as donated by B and R Farm Equipment.

Along with some other spontaneous donations, nearly $1,100 was totaled up on the night for the ACS chapter of State College.

Lafferty scored his 10th career Aumiller Insurance 410 sprint feature at the track after taking over from Brent Marks on the eighth tour.

Up until that time Marks of Myerstown held convincing sway over the field after starting on the pole for the 25-lap main event.

Marks entered the backmarkers on the sixth lap and it was that traffic that proved to be his undoing.

While setting a fleet pace, he went to the outside of Davey Sammons on the backchute to put him a lap down when the pair collided, resulting in a flip by Sammons and obvious broken rear suspension for Marks.

Lafferty had raced into second on the opening lap after starting third and was the new leader when action resumed.

Invader Lynton Jeffrey chased Lafferty on the restart with Mike Wagner racing third and the field again entered lapped traffic on the 13th tour.

Lafferty was flawless in traffic but took advantage of a final caution flag with nine laps to go to cruise to the victory on open track over the final several circuits.

Jeffrey finished a solid second followed by Wagner, Dave Ely and Curt Michael.

Sixth through 10th went to Chad Layton, 20th starter Greg Hodnett, Mike Erdley, Doug Esh and 22nd starter Danny Holtgraver.

Heats for the 26-car field went to Esh, Curt Stroup and Lafferty. The consolation went to Blane Heimbach.

Dickson took the Jakes Carts super late model main after wrestling the lead away from Eric Zembower.

Bedford’s Zembower took the lead from the second starting position as Waylon Wagner gave chase.

But Dickson was on the move and drove into third with three laps down.

He had closed in on Zembower by lap eight and after pressuring for the next three laps Dickson got under Zembower off of the fourth corner to take the lead and begin driving away.

Zembower rode home second followed by Andy Haus, who took third with seven laps to go.

Wagner was fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Trent Brenneman, Brett Schadel, Randy Burkholder, Mike Lupfer and Scott Haus.

Heats for the 21-car field went to Dickson, Tim Wilson and Mitch Hack.

The debut of the all-new Gray’s Auto and Towing 355 econo late model class was a good one with a healthy 16 entries.

The 15-lap main event was wired by 19-year old Andrew Yoder of Middleburg who withstood several caution flag restarts.

Tim Krape started fourth in the field and took over second spot with six laps down but was never able to seriously challenge for the win.

Instead, Krape had his hands full with Todd Snook for second before the pair made contact, forcing Snook from the race.

Krape ended up second followed by Bill Henney, Devin Hart and Jared Fulkroad.

Sixth through 10th went to Harold Ranck, Troy Miller, Cody Butterbaugh, Chase Bowsman and Danny Sollers.

Twin heats went to Krape and Yoder

KRIMES TEAM CHANGES “EVERYTHING BUT THE DRIVER,” WINS LINCOLN 410 SPRINT CAR MAIN

Perigo takes Super Sportsman feature; Knaub class of the field in Precise Racing Products 358 late model event

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 4/12/2014 – He gone! That’s the catch phrase Alan Krimes and his followers use when Alan Krimes starts putting his competitors behind him. And he did it short order in Saturday’s ARCH Night 25-lap 410 sprint car feature.

“I have to thank Dennis Kohler,” said Krimes upon exiting his Midnight Antiques/Conestoga Valley Garage/Krimes Racing Engines #87 in victory lane, “He changed everything but the driver there before the feature, and he must have found something.”

Touché. Krimes started ninth, crossed fifth at the end of the first lap, and passed outside front row started Kevin Nagy for second on lap three. At the time, polesitter Tyler Ross held a 1.16-second lead, which was quickly erased by Krimes over the next three laps.

“I knew starting on the bottom was going to be the key,” said Krimes,” The top was real dirty and it was hard to run up there. I got a real good start and I thought we’d be in pretty good shape. I got up to second there pretty quick. The 92 was going pretty good, and he just slipped in turn four and allowed me to sneak underneath him.”

Krimes caught Ross in turns one and two of the sixth lap, and led until eighth-starting Brian Montieth passed him in lapped traffic exiting turn four of lap 22. Heading into the very next turns, Montieth lost the handle and spun out, handing the lead back over to Krimes. No one was more surprised than Krimes himself.

“We came up on a lapped car running on the bottom, and I made up my mind to go to the top to get around him,” said Krimes, “I almost spun out, and Brian got back by me and I turned and got back underneath him going into one, and the yellow came out. I thought ‘Dang it!’ He had me at the line and they’re going to put him back in front of me. I came back around, and he was sitting there, so we lucked out. He would’ve been tough to get by.”

Robbie Kendall inherited second for the restart, but was never able to challenge Krimes, who crossed 1.34 second in front for his 14th career Lincoln win. In doing so, he became the fourth winner in as many races in 2014.

Danny Dietrich came from tenth starting spot to catch last week’s feature winner Jimmy Siegel for third with a lap to go. Siegel, who started 12th, settled for fourth, with Nagy fifth. Sixth through tenth were hard charger Cory Hass (who started 15th), Glenndon Forsythe, Lance Dewease, Ross, and Adam Wilt.

Heats for the 29 410 sprinters were won by Nagy, Austin Hogue, and Forsythe, with Gerard McIntyre, Jr. winning the consolation.

Carmen Perigo, Jr. dominated the 25-lap super sportsman feature, starting third and leading every lap, to score his fifth career Lincoln win. Defending tour champ Frankie Herr was involved in a multi-car crash in turns three and four of lap three to end his night.

After setting a new 10-lap track record in his heat, Scott Geesey advanced from fifth to second on the first lap and ran there the rest of the way, with Russ Mitten coming from 14th starting spot to finish third. Rounding out the top five were Mike Enders and Rick Barr.

Heats for the 32 Super Sportsman were won by Joey Biasi, Geesey, Perigo, and Chad Trout, with Rich Eichelberger winning the consolation. Geesey’s 10-lap track record was 2 minutes, 31.44 seconds.

Dover’s Gene Knaub drove away from the field to score his 15th career win in the 20-lap Precise Racing Products 358 late model feature. Knaub started fourth and took the lead from polesitter Travis Mease on lap four. He led the rest of the way, with outside front row starter Tyler Horst crossing second. Third through fifth were hard charger Kyle Lear (who started ninth), Mease, and Alan Sagi.

Heats for the 19 358 Late Models were won by Knaub and Bobby Beard, who dropped from the field while running third in the feature.

Next Saturday, April 19, it’ll be JOHN H. MYERS & SON BUILDING & REMODELING SUPPLIES NIGHT, featuring a spring championship event paying for $4,000 to win the 410 sprint car feature, plus 358 Sprints and Street Stocks. Gates open at 5 p.m., with racing to begin at 7:00 p.m.

Abbottstown, PA

RECORD-BREAKING NIGHT AT LINCOLN

Ryan Wilson & Kevin Nouse Celebrate Track Prep Man Fred Putney’s Birthday with Records

Abbottstown, PA - 4/7/2014 – Saturday night April 5th Master Track preparer Fred Putney celebrated his 61st birthday by giving the drivers and teams a dream track that saw not one, but two 10-lap track records broken.

In the 410 Sprints, Ryan Wilson ran the fastest 10 laps in Lincoln Speedway history in two minutes 9.444 seconds in the first heat. That not only broke only the current weight-rule record of two minutes 12.817 seconds set by Brent Marks last year on 3/2/2013, but broke the pre-weight rule record of two minutes 12.905 seconds held by Brian Leppo from 3/14/2009.

And then in the 358 Sprints, Kevin Nouse set the tone early on his feature-winning night by recording the fastest 10 laps in 358 Sprint history in 2 minutes 19.97 seconds to break Mark Smith’s two minute 23.41 second record from 6/22/2013.

It was a big night for all, especially for the fans as they saw:

Ryan Wilson record the fastest 10 laps in Lincoln Speedway history in 410 Sprints. Jim Siegel pick up his 10th career win at the Pigeon Hills oval and became the third different winner in three events this season. Kevin Nouse record the fastest 10 laps in 358 Sprint history. Kevin Nouse pick up his third career Lincoln win and became the second different winner in two events. Scott Jorda claimed his first career win in the 20-lap All-American Outlaw feature. And Master Track preparer Fred Putney celebrated his 61st birthday by giving the fans a track to produce all of the above.

It was a great night for all with many more to come in 2014. This Saturday, April 12th, it’ll be ARCH NIGHT in the Pigeon Hills, featuring the 410 Sprints, Super Sportsman, and 358 Late Models. As part of ARCH’s “Cars and Guitars Tour,” the rock band “Seventh Tower” will perform in a special concert in the infield from 5-5:45 PM. Gates will open at 5 PM, with the first green flag scheduled for 7 PM.

Port Royal Big $ All Star Bob Weikert Memorial Is Three Weeks, April 26

All Stars event again pays $10,000 to win, $500 to start out of $34,000 purse!

4/7/14

Port Royal – The 2014 Bob Weikert Memorial sanctioned by the All Star Circuit of Champions Sprints at Port Royal Speedway on April 26 will be the richest, most lucrative event for sprint cars contested to date in the east.

The Bob Weikert Memorial will again pay $10,000 to win this season out of a total purse of over $34,000 that also pays a hefty $500 just to start.

In addition, over $3,000 in contingency cash will be distributed via lap money, fast time award and more.

Run in honor of late hall of fame sprint car owner Bob Weikert, the Weikert Memorial is one of the shining lights of both the Port Royal and All Stars seasons.

The 2014 race was taken by Doug Esh of Lancaster who totaled up some $12,200 for his night of effort.

Esh’s run to the win was far from easy, needing first to pass a pair of previous race leaders, Brad Sweet of Grass Valley, Calif., and Tim Shaffer of Aliquippa, before he got control for the victory.

Driving a replica Weikert No. 29 sprint car, Logan Schuchart set a new one-lap track record in last year’s event.

Again this year, each lap of the 30-lap Weikert feature will pay $100 to lead. Fast time will be worth at least $300.

The Weikert Memorial Port Royal All Star invasion promises to be and in fact will be one of the richest events the circuit offers throughout its 2014 campaign.

The All Stars return to Port Royal Speedway again in early September for the two-day, 47th annual Tuscarora 50 races as part of the Juniata County Fair.

General admission gates for the 2014 All Star Bob Weikert Memorial at Port Royal Speedway will open at 4 pm on April 26 with racing slated for 7 pm.

Adult general admission will be just $22 with youth ages 12 – 18 priced at JUST $5.

More news about the 2014 installment of the prestigious Bob Weikert Memorial at Port Royal Speedway is in the offing as details become confirmed.

Williams Grove Speedway Saturday Night Series Admission remains At Five Dollars

Williams Grove Speedway management will retain the five-dollar admission for the 2014 Saturday Night Series. The ticket price will continue to be the lowest in local racing.

Speedway owner Kathy Hughes established the five-dollar admission several years ago. Hughes is marketing the Saturday night racing towards families that are seeking a night of entertainment.

The Saturday Night Series attendance is increasing, thanks to the low-ticket price. Hughes also established a three-division show featuring the Blazer’s Body Shop Super Sportsman, Credit Connection Auto Sales 358 Late Models, and the Aquafun Pools Street Stocks.

Williams Grove Speedway offers families a first-class facility. The front and back stretch have high-rise grandstands that allow families a safe, modern place to watch the races. For those with active children there is the infield area, allowing children to run, toss a football while enjoying an evening of racing.

Several of the family-fun activities will return in 2014. The Meet and Greet will be back allowing young fans to meet the drivers and see the racecars. Meet the Young Fans, held at intermission, will be back; a program that interviews the children. Several other new programs are in the works.

Williams Grove Speedway is celebrating 75 years of racing. The Saturday Night Series is proud to be a part of this historic year.

The Saturday Night Series will begin racing on Saturday, April 26. Racing action begins at 6:30.

 

 

Rodriguez Victorious at SSP’s Opening Night on Saturday

Next Wednesday Test & Tune on April 9

Newberrytown, PA (April 5, 2014) – The Susquehanna Speedway Park opened up on Saturday night for the 60th season with four exciting divisions on a cold and frigid night. Dover’s J.R. Rodriguez took the victory in the Late Model 25 lapper on opening night. Mt. Wolf’s Gary Potts took the win by leading the final three laps of the Street Stock 20 lapper. Scott Geesey of Wellsville took the win in the 25-lap Super Sportsman tour race. Harlon Leppo won the Legends Cars 20-lap feature event.

Devin Frey started on the pole position with J.R. Rodriguez starting beside him at the green of the 25-lap Late Model feature event. Rodriguez grabbed the early lead and set the pace. Billy Wampler started in fourth and made his way to the rear bumper of the leader by the midway point. A few caution flag periods bunched up the field but Wampler was unable to make the pass for the lead. Rodriguez took the checkers over Wampler with Matt Murphy finishing strong in third. Devin Frey finished fourth with Scott Richwine rounding out the top five. Chase Billet and Steve Billet were the heat race winners.

Danny Beard grabbed the early lead of the 20-lap Street Stock feature, however on lap 3 Jasen Geesaman took over the spot. Geesaman held off Gary Potts and Beard until mechanical failure forced him from the race on lap 18. On the restart, Potts set the pace up front and went on to win the season opener for the Street Stocks. Jim Palm Jr. made a last lap pass to finish second with Beard settling for third. Scott Thunberg and Aaron Beard finished fourth and fifth places respectively. Danny Beards and Potts were heat race victors.

Scott Geesey took the early lead of the 25-lap Super Sportsman feature from the pole position. Frankie Herr quickly grabbed the runner-up spot with Chad Trout close in top. The top three battle for the top spot with Herr taking the lead on lap 13. Geesey wrestled the lead back on lap 17 until lap 21 when Chad Trout took the top spot to set the pace. A caution with one lap remaining made it a one lap shoot-out for the victory. On the restart, Geesey blasted back into the lead. In the middle of turn 3 and 4 on the final circuit, Trout made one last attempt to regain the top spot. Trout spun in front of the field, sending Frankie Herr flipping. After a brief red flag, Geesey went on to take the win over Mike Enders and Scott Dellinger. Chris Meleason and Russ Mitten rounded out the top five. Heat race wins went to Jaremi Hanson, Meleason, Trout and Geesey. Bobby Hockenberry was the consolation winner.

In the 20-lap Legends Car feature, Harlon Leppo held off a late race challenge from Lucas Montgomery to take the victory. Montgomery failed to finish the race as he spun just short of the finish line at the end. Bill Diehl came across the line in second, followed by Jacob Feltch, Bob Stough and C.J. Quirk. Scott Houdeshell, Diehl and Leppo were heat race winners.

Heimbach And Wilson Score Hot Port Royal Wins In Cold Opener

Tyler Bear wires in 305 sprints

4/5/14

Port Royal – The air might have been cold but the racing action was hot at the Port Royal Speedway season opener on Saturday night as both the sprint car and late model mains dished out exciting battles for the lidlifter victories with Blane Heimbach scoring in sprints and Tim Wilson scoring in late models.

In the River Valley Builders 305 sprint main, Tyler Bear wired the field for a 20-lap victory.

The Aumiller’s Insurance 410 sprint main found Trey Starks of Puyallup, WA., and Harrisburg’s Chad Layton on the front row with Heimbach lining up fourth for the start.

Layton jumped out to the lead immediately when the race got underway with Heimbach moving into third behind Starks.

Cautions regrouped the field on the first and third laps before a longer green flag run took the field up to the seventh circuit with Heimbach moving by Starks for the runner up spot on the restart.

And by the time the yellow flag again appeared with seven laps down, Heimbach had begun challenging Layton for control.

Mike Erdley lined up third for the restart but was unable to challenge for the lead as this race was to be decided between Layton and Heimbach.

The pair ran closely together for the next few laps, changing lanes at will in each corner as each driver tried to outfox the other and come away with firm control.

Heimbach finally got the run he needed with nine away to drive into control and immediately begin pulling away before entering traffic with 11 laps to go in the 25 tour main event.

The mid stages of the race was all Heimbach as Layton tried to just keep him in sight but after the five lap sign had been displayed Layton began reeling in the pacesetter.

And with two laps to go it appeared the finish would be close as Layton consistently gained valuable ground each time the pair raced off of the second corner.

Going down the backchute for the final time, Layton was close enough to try a last corner swoop around the top to try and come up with the victory however he came up short at the line and instead finished a challenging second.

Heimbach’s $3,300 win was the ninth of his Port Royal career, tying him with Jan Opperman and Rick Lafferty on the all time win list.

Erdley rode home third followed by a close race for fourth that saw 12th starter Brent Marks secure the spot with 15th starter Greg Hodnett coming home fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Justin Barger, 18th starter Nate Snyder, Trey Starks, Steve Buckwalter and Mike Wagner.

Heats for the 25-car field went to Buckwalter, Heimbach and Erdley.

Andy Haus started on the pole of the Jakes Golf Carts late model main and led the first three circuits before fourth starter Brett Schadel took control.

Tim Wilson started second in the field and although he was passed by Schadel early, he refused to fall off the pace and once able to heat up his tires he began pressuring for the win.

He got by Haus for second with nine laps to go and quickly closed in on leader Schadel.

The leader entered the rear of the field on the 12th tour and was a comfortable distance out in front when a caution regrouped the field with four laps to go.

And that started a string of three yellow flags on consecutive laps that allowed Wilson to work on Schadel for the win.

Wilson drew alongside Schadel and sometimes nosed ahead in the corners during the final two miles only to see Schadel lead at the stripe.

But as the pair headed for the final corners, Wilson set up for a final attempt at the lead entering the third corner and he made good on the effort by bolting underneath Schadel deep in the third turn to steal the victory by .142 seconds at the finish.

Haus was third with Matt Parks fourth and Scott Haus in fifth.

SIEGEL CLAIMS CAREER TENTH IN LINCOLN “410” SPRINT FEATURE

Nouse comes from seventh to win “358” main; Scott Jorda scores first career win in All-American Outlaws

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 4/5/2014 –New Oxford’s Jim Siegel started on the pole and led them all in picking up his tenth career Lincoln win in the 25-lap “410” sprint car feature Saturday night.

“The track was super-fast and hard to pass on tonight, said Siegel upon exiting his Mason-Dixon Vault Company #59 in victory lane, “It was a good night to have a little luck and draw a good number for the heat race. Of course, we’ve had bad luck all year and started up front. That was definitely the difference. There wasn’t much passing.”

Actually, there was, but Siegel never saw it.

Cory Haas came from seventh starting spot to actually challenge Siegel in lapped traffic after passing outside front row starter Tim Wagaman on the 17th lap. And third-place finisher Brian Montieth lived on the edge all night and came from 18th starting spot.

“I don’t know where Cory started. I thought I heard him a couple times, I wasn’t really sure,” said Siegel after becoming the third different winner in as many races in the Pigeon Hills this season, “I was trying to take my time with lapped cars, because we tore this thing up on opening day and I don’t want to go through that again. This is the only car we have.”

The last 16 laps went non-stop, with the leaders dicing through the field.

“I knew they (lapped cars) were holding me up, so I thought ‘It’s time to sit up in the seat and go.’ The car was a lot faster than what I was pushing it, but when the track’s like this and there’s not much passing, you have to just make it wide and go as fast as you need to, and that’s what I tried to do.”

Wagaman hung on for fourth, with 15th-starting Danny Dietrich coming home fifth. Sixth through tenth were Steve Owings, Robbie Kendall, Glenndon Forsythe, Mike Bittinger, and 21st-starting Billy Dietrich.

When asked about the early-race challenges of rookie 410 racer Tim Wagaman, Siegel pointed out the abundance of young talent now racing weekly at Lincoln.

“There’s a lot of new faces this year, and it’s going to make it tough until you learn everyone’s tendencies,” said Siegel, “There are a lot of talented young guys out here, and it’s going to be tough here by the end of the year.”

Heats for the 29 410 sprinters were won by Ryan Wilson, Derek Sell, and Siegel, with Freddie Rahmer winning the consolation.

Mechanicsburg’s Kevin Nouse prevailed in a late-race battle with Chase Dietz to score the win in the 20-lap “358” sprint car feature. Nouse started seventh and grabbed the runner-up spot from polesitter and early-race leader Tyler Esh on lap 10. From there, he tracked down fourth-starting Dietz, who had taken the lead from Esh on lap five.

Nouse was on Dietz’s back bumper as the two navigated through lapped traffic with two laps to go. That’s when disaster nearly struck for both leaders, with Dietz getting crossed up by a lapped car in turn four and both cars bouncing off each other exiting the turn. Nouse nipped Dietz at the line with the white flag waving, and held on for his third career Lincoln win.

Dietz settled for second, with opening day winner Niki Young coming from eighth to cross third. Competing the top five were Esh and Matt Campbell. Rounding out the top ten were Duane Watson, Zach Eucalano, Brie Hershey, Chandler Leiby, and Jay Galloway.

Heats for the 19 358 sprinters were won by Watson and Nouse.

Westminster, Maryland’s Scott Jorda claimed his first career win in the 20-lap All-American Outlaw feature event, after finding himself the leader on an 18th-lap incident involving leader Randy Doty and second-place Hunter Nester.

Nester got into the back of race-long leader Doty in turn four, resulting in a Doty spin and a roughriding call against Nester, sending him to the rear.

Jorda led the final three laps, holding off Justin Cullum for the win. Third through fifth were Al Daniels, Jim Minter, and Doty.

Heats for the 20 All American Outlaws were won by Doty and Bryan Green, who pulled into the infield just before the start of the feature event.

Next Saturday, April 12th, it’ll be ARCH NIGHT in the Pigeon Hills, featuring the 410 Sprints, Super Sportsman, and 358 Late Models. As part of ARCH’s “Cars and Guitars Tour,” the rock band “Seventh Tower” will perform in a special concert in the infield from 5:00-5:45 p.m. Gates open at 5:00, with the first green flag scheduled for 7:00 p.m.

McIntyre And Shaffer Open Williams Grove Season With Wins

3/28/14

Mechanicsburg – Gerard McIntyre Jr. held off the furious charges of Stevie Smith and Brian Montieth to win the 2014 season opener for sprint cars at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night.

In the 358 sprint main it was frontrow starter Adrian Shaffer who wired the field for the 20-lap victory.

Cory Haas held sway from the start in the 410 sprint feature over McIntyre with Greg Hodnett running third.

The pace was slowed on the second circuit for a stopped Doug Esh on the backstretch and Haas had the field firmly under his control when action resumed.

Hodnett was really coming after McIntyre for second with repeated attempts in the turns when he came up lame, with failed brakes with 11 laps in the book.

On the restart Haas looked good-to-go but his run at the front would only last for another lap as engine woes forced him to stop on the frontstretch, turning the helm over to McIntyre.

The final 13 circuits would go nonstop with all eyes turning to 14th starter Brian Montieth who was up to fifth by the time Haas lost his engine.

Montieth pounced on Rick Lafferty for fourth on the restart and then got by Ryan Smith for third with 14 down.

The front trio remained comfortable distances apart until the five to go point when the rear of the field came into play just ahead of leader McIntyre.

Both Montieth and Smith swarmed all over one another during the late going while the pair as a whole drilled down on McIntyre only to cross the finish line under a blanket with the winner, all three drivers separated by no more than .948 seconds.

Ryan Smith crossed the line in fourth with Lafferty fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Trey Starks, Robbie Stillwaggon, Kyle Reinhardt, Chad Layton and Don Kreitz Jr.

Heats for the 30-car field went to Lafferty, Stillwaggon and McIntyre with the consolation going to Dave Ely.

Adrian Shaffer led all 20 laps of the 358 sprint main for his eighth career victory in the division at the track.

Chandler Leiby wrestled his way up to second by the halfway point but there was no closing on Shaffer at the front.

Kevin Nouse dueled with Brad McClelland early to advance into third for the finish.

McClelland was fourth with Jay Galloway finishing fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Kody Lehman, Brock Zearfoss, Brie Hershey, Duane Watson and Matt Campbell.

Heats went to Shaffer and Leiby.

Thunder on the Hill Welcomes USAC Eastern Storm. . . . .

CALIFORNIA RACER CHAD BOESPFLUG READIES FOR 8TH ANNUAL EASTERN STORM TO OPEN AT GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY TUESDAY, JUNE 3RD

The 8th Annual USAC Eastern Storm is fast approaching with the opener set for the Grandview Speedway on Tuesday night, June 3. Grandview Speedway and the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series is pleased to host the opener. Grandview has been part of the Eastern Storm every year since the Series started in 2007. Five race dates make-up the Eastern Storm with additional stops at the Lincoln Speedway on Wednesday, June 4, New Egypt Speedway on Thursday, June 5, Port Royal Speedway on Saturday, June 7 with the series closing at the Susquehanna Speedway on Sunday, June 8.

One driver looking forward to the Eastern Storm is twenty-six year old Chad Boespflug of Handford, CA. Boespflug’s credentials include winning the 2005 SCRA 360 sprint championship as well as the 2011 Lawrenceburg Speedway track championship.

Chad Boespflug was born in 1988 in Carmichael, California. Shortly after, his parents and he moved to Hanford, California. Growing up in a Hanford, Chad graduated from Hanford high school in 2006. After graduating, He made the move back to Indiana to pursue his dream of being a top ranked sprint car driver. He went to college at IUPUC for two years studying business marketing.

Always up for a challenge and willing to race anything with wheels, Chad lives to race. He has been racing every summer since 1998 winning races and championships from coast to coast. The Hanford, California native grew up racing in California and made the move to the Midwest in 2007. In the first two seasons in the Midwest Chad faced two nearly career ending crashes in 2007 and 2008 but since has been able to bounce back and continue to win on any given night.

“Non-wing sprint car racing is like nothing else, pitching the car at some tracks long before the corner even starts, but staying in control, it’s just such an adrenaline rush”, said Chad.

“The plan right now is for me to bring my personal car out and run the entire USAC Eastern Swing. My car is the #98 that I ran in seasons past. I will be bringing my car with the help of my grandfather and possibly one other person to help wrench the entire week”. Chad continued to say, “We will have some help from some local PA friends and I will be bringing shirts and other merchandise items with me as well”. You can visit Chad’s online store at: www.chadboespflugracing.com

For Chad Boespflug, the Eastern Storm will bring him to five tracks he has not previously seen. “As for Grandview, I’ve heard very little although I’ve watched races from there online. Lincoln is a top notch facility and has a great track prep program and I just can’t wait to get there and see the place for myself”. Boespflug continued, “As for New Egypt Speedway, I’ve heard it is a fun place to race. I’m looking forward to race at all the tracks and to meet new fans”.

“Since some PA fans have heard I will be coming east, I have received several messages about how excited they are that I will be coming to the Eastern Storm. I’ve heard great things of how supportive and passionate the Pennsylvania fans are about sprint cars”, said Chad.

By trade, Chad is a Project Supervisor for Dalton Luebbert Groups, managing the utility and piping fabrication and installation. Racing is an important part of his life and being successful is a career aspiration. “I have to thank all of my sponsors of my sprint car to include Midwest Shades, Bell Helmets, Hinchman, ButlerBuilt Seats, Shaws Vintage Hot Rods, Manvel Motorsports, Creative Finishing, Claxton Engines, and Indy Race Parts”, said Chad.

Get ready for the always exciting USAC non-wing sprint car Easter Storm. They only come east one time a year so block out June 3 to June 8 and check it out.

HEIMBACH SCORES FIRST SELINSGROVE 410 SPRINT CAR WIN IN SEASON OPENER

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Blane Heimbach of Selinsgrove, a 36-time 358-360 sprint car winner at Selinsgrove Speedway, scored the one victory that has eluded him for nearly a decade: His first career win in a 410 sprint car at Selinsgrove in the track’s 52nd consecutive season opener Sunday afternoon.

Heimbach’s $4,000 victory in the 25-lap feature came from the seventh starting position at the wheel of the Goff Racing/Creasy Signs No. 12.

Lucas Wolfe of Mechanicsburg and JJ Grasso of Pedricktown, N.J., won the eight-lap heat races.

On the initial start of the feature, second-place starter Greg Hodnett powered into the early lead over polesitter Justin Barger. However, a caution flag for 13th-place starter Pat Cannon, who made contact with the second-turn guardrail, regrouped the field for the second attempt to start the race.

When the race resumed, Barger pulled into a solid lead and held Hodnett at bay. Sixth-place starter Chad Layton quickly advanced to third while fourth-place starter JJ Grasso and seventh-place starter Heimbach dueled for the fourth spot.

A close battle unfolded for the third position between Layton and Heimbach as the race drew close to the halfway point. On lap 12, Heimbach powered by Layton for third and began to reel in the leaders. Less than a lap later, misfortune struck Barger as his car developed a flat tire, ending his hopes of an opening day win.

The race stayed under green flag conditions and Hodnett inherited the lead at Barger’s expense. Heimbach quickly reeled in the new pacesetter and then made the winning pass by diving inside of Hodnett entering turn one on the 15th circuit. Three laps later, Hodnett’s car went up in smoke and rolled to a stop in turn two.

On the subsequent restarts, Layton challenged Heimbach for the lead to no avail. At the checkered flag, Heimbach scored an impressive victory by two seconds over Layton, eighth-place starter Mike Erdley, third-place starter Lucas Wolfe, and 16th-place starter Steve Buckwalter.

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY RACE SUMMARY – 23 March 2014 410 Sprint Cars – 16 Entries 25-Lap A-Main: 1) 12 Blane Heimbach 2) 7M Chad Layton 3) 11 Mike Erdley 4) 1 Lucas Wolfe 5) 17B Steve Buckwalter 6) 89 Robbie Stillwagon 7) 0 Rick Lafferty 8) 63 Chad Kemenah 9) 28F Davey Franek 10) 29 Ryan Wilson 11) 37 JJ Grasso 12) 10H Danny Holtgraver 13) 27 Greg Hodnett 14) 5 Justin Barger 15) 19M Brent Marks 16) 3 Pat Cannon Heat Winners: Lucas Wolfe, JJ Grasso
