Dewease Wins Port Royal $7,000 Speedweek Main For Third Of 2016 Series

Oval veteran notches 98th career Port Royal win while Hart claims second econo main

6/30/16

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Lance Dewease drove the Don Kreitz No. 69K sprint car to the $7,000 PA Speedweek victory at Port Royal Speedway on Thursday night, turning back Stevie Smith and Lucas Wolfe for the 98th win of his career at the oval.

In the 18-lap econo late model feature, Port Royal’s Devin Hart scored his second win of the season in the division, taking the lead late in the race.

Dewease started seventh in the 30-lap speedweek feature with Stevie Smith and James McFadden sharing the front row and when action began Dewease stuffed his racer up the inside and into fourth on the first lap, behind Greg Hodnett, McFadden and Smith.

McFadden and Hodnett were locked in a battle for second on the third lap when Hodnett tried to make a move on McFadden for the spot as the pair exited the fourth turn.

As Hodnett came up across the track he found McFadden to his outside and the pair made contact with McFadden biting the outside wall while Hodnett turned sideways and hopped up over the inside barrier, ending up with his nose pointed toward the sky, hanging on the barrier.

Dewease blasted the outside in the first and second turns on the restart to keep pace with Smith and then dropped down to the inside as the pair raced onto the backchute before blasting across the inside in the third corner to come up with the lead.

Smith was trying to keep pace with Dewease on the fifth circuit when the red flag unfurled for a third turn crash that saw Logan Wagner flipping after contact with Blane Heimbach as the pair vied for 15th.

Dewease was still leading over Smith and now Lucas Wolfe on the eighth tour when the pace was again slowed, this time for a spun Tyler Bear.

The next 14 laps clicked off non-stop with Dewease reaching the halfway point while holding a 1.835 second lead over Smith who was hounding to regain control.

Trey Starks, who was racing ninth in the field, stopped with eight laps to go, again slowing the race pace.

Wolfe darted under Smith for second when green replaced the yellow but saw Smith reclaim the spot with six laps to go.

A final caution flag with five laps to go for Bryan Clauson again bunched the field.

For Clauson, the yellow marked the end of an impressive run in the feature after he blew a tire and hit the outside fence while racing sixth.

Dewease pulled away over the final five laps to pick up his third win of the 2016 speedweek series and sixth of the season overall in just 11 starts to date.

His margin of victory was 1.950 seconds.

Wolfe finished third followed by Danny Dietrich and Brent Marks.

Sixth through 10th went to Dave Blaney, Doug Esh, Aaron Ott, Brock Zearfoss and Alan Krimes.

Heats for the 33-car field went to Clauson, Dewease, Dietrich and Steve Buckwalter with the consolation going to Tim Shaffer,

Wolfe set fast time in qualifications with a lap of 15.529 seconds.

Chase Bowsman nearly won the 18-lap econo late model main, leading all but the final quarter of a lap.

Bowsman held off Shaun Miller for the first 14 laps before Miller surrendered to pressure from Devin Hart.

Hart caught Bowsman on the final lap and got underneath him as the pair raced down the backchute into the third corner, heading to the checkers.

Bowsman threw his car into the turn trying to hold on for the win but instead lost control and the win went to Hart.

Tim Krape rode home second followed by Miller, Todd Snook and Tim Fedder.

Heats went to Miller and Krape.

Susquehanna Speedway to Thank Car Owners With Free Admission to Firecracker 40

PA Sprint Car News | Justin Snyder

York Haven, PA | June 30, 2016

Susquehanna Speedway has been the talk of the local racing scene since Scott Gobrecht took ownership last year and brought Kolten Gouse on to serve as promoter of the Newberrytown facility.

With cosmetic changes such as new barriers, upgraded bathrooms, new lights and more, fans and drivers have been treated to new and improved facilities throughout the 2016 season.

Hosting multiple series on a weekly basis, the racing has been top notch. Thanks to the addition of new clay and constant upkeep by track staff, the speedway has enjoyed resurgence with high car counts and extremely competitive events.

On top of providing an improved racing surface and first class facilities, the speedway team is looking to thank their support classes with various promotions throughout the season.

"We want to better connect with our drivers and have them feel apart of this speedway," said Gouse.

In late March, the speedway announced that they would honor various divisions with free pit passes on specified nights. This included Super Sportsman, Limited Late Model, Street Stock, Extreme Sreet Stocks and Road Warrior divisions.

Looking to expand on this promotion and as a way to give back to other divisions who support the track, they will be offering free admission to any driver from the Legends, Road Warriors, Extreme Stocks and Mini Vans for their Firecracker 40 event on July 2nd.

"I can't remember any track that has done this recently, if ever," said Gouse. "That's over 100 drivers that will be eligible for a free grandstand admission."

The spectacle, presented by Dellinger's Auto Body, Tyson Fence Co., Creekside Auto Sales and Morgan Paving Ic. , will feature the Super Sportsman, topless 358 Limited Late Models and Street Stocks. The Eastern Museum of Motor Racing will also be on hand.

Local musicians, The Colt WIlbur Band, will also perform at a pre-race party from 4-6 p.m as part of the weekly parking lot party outside the speedway.

"It's something small, but we really just wanted to show our drivers in these divisions that we really do care about them and that we appreciate all that they do for us as competitors," said Gouse, who added they will be doing more events like this in the future.

Drivers wishing to attend the racing program and cash in on the promotion can pick up their tickets at he grandstand window prior to the nights events.

RAIN STOPS THUNDER SERIES ON LAP FIFTEEN OF SPRINT FEATURE TUESDAY NIGHT AT GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY

BECHTELSVILLE, PA (June 28, 2016) – Rain has not been a friend to Thunder on the Hill and Tuesday night was no different as the Pennsylvania 410 Sprint Speed Week Series invaded the Grandview Speedway for event one-hundred and twenty of the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series presented by Pioneer Pole Buildings. Feature race leader Ryan Smith made contact with another car sending him spinning into the first turn infield on lap fifteen. At the same time, the light mist of rain opened to a down pour. The sprint cars returned to the pits to wait out the shower. The amount of rain that fell over the twenty-five minute delay, was just too much for even the Grandview Speedway track crew to correct. As a result, the event was postponed with the completion of this show to take place on the Tuesday night, July 26.

The remainder of the event – a 410 Sprint car feature starting at lap 16 and a 30-lap Modified feature will be run, along with a complete show for both divisions. The complete show, includes the 410 Sprint Cars in the 2nd Annual Thunder Cup, a 35-Lap, $5,000 to win feature plus a 30-lap, $3,000 to win NASCAR 358 Modified main event.

At the start of the 35 lap Speed Week feature, Brent Marks, of Myerstown, PA, jumped to the early lead with Ryan Smith and Freddie Rahmer following quickly. Darting around the quick 1/3-mile high-banks, Marks set a rapid pace but Smith challenged back sliding into the lead on the fourth circuit.

The yellow flag flew for the first time on the sixth lap for Sean Zemunik and Jevon Ahner who tangled in turn four.

On the restart, Smith charged forward, while eight-time Thunder on the Hill winner Greg Hodnett raced into the runner-up spot from the sixth place starting position. Smith, “The Kunkletown Kid” to his fans, powered forward before tangling with a lapped car on the fifteenth lap.

TJ Stutts set fast time with a lap of 11.763. For Stutts, this was his first visit to Grandview in a 410 sprint car. Sprint heat races were won by Bryan Clauson, Brent Marks and Ryan Smith. In the Modifieds, heat race events were won by Duane Howard and Ryan Grim

The next NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series event takes place on Thursday, July 14 when the Super DIRTCar Series Big-Block Modifieds compete at the 19th Annual Traffic Jam presented by Pioneer Pole Buildings. The Modifieds will compete in a 60-lap event paying $7,000 to win that pays $1,000 for 10th and $500 to Start a 30-car field. Also on the card is the Sportsman division participating in a 25-lap event.

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY HOSTS PA SPEEDWEEK FINALE OPPERMAN-BOGAR MEMORIAL FOR 410 SPRINT CARS THIS SUNDAY

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Selinsgrove Speedway will host the PA Speedweek Finale for 410 sprint cars at 7:30 p.m. this Sunday, July 3, honoring the memory of the late driver-car owner duo of Jan Opperman and Dick Bogar. The 30-lap 410 sprint car feature will pay $5,000 to win and $400 to start. Track gates will open at 5:30 p.m.

The 305 sprint cars and pro stocks will compete in 20-lap and 15-lap main events, respectively, to round out the three-division racing card this Sunday. The rain date, if needed, will be Monday, July 4 at 7 p.m.

Since 2005, the Opperman Memorial has been run in conjunction with the PA Speedweek Series for 410 sprint cars at Selinsgrove. The inaugural Opperman Memorial was won by Todd Hestor of Middleburg in 2002. Last year’s race and the PA Speedweek championship went to Stevie Smith of Broken Arrow, Okla.

Selinsgrove Speedway is where Opperman won the most races—19 in a sprint car—and where he clinched his only track championship in 1973. In 1974 and 1976 he qualified for the Indianapolis 500 and then returned to Pennsylvania to race sprint cars. He suffered a career-ending injury in a URC-sanctioned sprint car race in 1981 at the Jennerstown Speedway. Opperman died in 1997 at the age of 58.

Bogar is credited with recruiting Opperman to turn the wheel on what would be become one of the most famous sprint cars in the history of the sport – the Bogar No. 99. The Bogar family name has a long heritage with the historic Snyder County half-mile oval. It was the Bogar Lumber Company that supplied the lumber to build the track’s current covered grandstand. Bogar passed away in 2014 at the age of 86.

In April, Danny Dietrich of Gettysburg won the All Star Circuit of Champions Ray Tilley Classic and most recently Greg Hodnett of Spring Grove scored the win in the June Friday Night Lights 410 sprint car race at the Snyder County half-mile oval.

Selinsgrove Raceway Park will present the Firecracker Special for go karts at 7 p.m. this Friday, July 1. Track gates will open at 5:30 p.m.

THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES

NAPA AUTO PARTS & PIONEER POLE BUILDINGS PRESENT. . . . . .

IS A FIRST-TIME GRANDVIEW WINNER LIKELY TUESDAY, JUNE 28 DURING THUNDER ON THE HILL SPEEDWEEK EVENT ?

BECHTELSVILLE, PA (JUNE 27, 2016) – Winning at Grandview Speedway is no easy task -- especially when the 410 Sprint Cars invade the Berks County oval – but this year’s contingent of Pennsylvania Sprint Car Speed week competitors may be the strongest in years, and there is definitely opportunity to knock off two-time defending race winner Greg Hodnett.

The challenge takes place this Tuesday, June 28 at 7:30 PM when NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series showcases the 410 Sprint Cars in a 35-lap, $5,000-to-win event as the NASCAR 358 Modifieds battlein a 30-lap, $3,000-to-win feature presented by Pioneer Pole Buildings.

Leading the charge is Broken Arrow, Oklahoma’s Stevie Smith. A veteran of Sprint Car racing, Smith has claimed victories at almost every track he’s raced at. Of course, it was August 1990 when the Smith Family’s famed Black Bandit No. 19 sat in Thunder on the Hill victory lane. Steve Smith Sr. would pilot that machine to the inaugural NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series event win. Now, twenty-six years later the younger Smith – defending PA Speed Week Champion – searches for his first Thunder on the Hill win a Grandview Speedway.

Sitting second in PA Speed Week Series points is 31-year-old Lucas Wolfe, of Mechanicsburg, PA. Wolfe certainly knows the fast way around the Bechtelsville high-banks setting quick time at 2015’s Thunder Cup race. At the 2014, Speed Week event Wolfe pulled alongside eventual race winner Greg Hodnett, with two laps remaining only to be beaten by inches at the line – this wasn’t Wolfe’s first time as a bridesmaid, he finished second to Todd Shaffer at the 2007 Speed Week event.

Kunkletown, PA’s Ryan Smith claimed three victories in 2015, traveling with the All-Star Circuit of Champions and has solid finishes in just three 410 starts at Grandview Speedway with a sixth, fourth and seventh in respectively.

Ryan Taylor’s flashy No. 20 machine is a fan favorite at Grandview Speedway – probably because the 27-year-old racer credits the Bechtelsville clay for piquing his interest in racing action. Taylor is a proven winner, having claimed victories at the Port Royal Speedway.

Smith’s teammates, 20-year-old Sprint Car aces Brandon and Freddie Rahmer, out of Salfordville, PA, have both claimed home track victories this season – and Freddie has picked up a top-five finish at Grandview’s last two 410 Sprint races. The Rahmer name is no stranger to Grandview victory lane – Fred Rahmer holds 9 Thunder on the Hill Sprint Car wins and 45 Modified victories.

Other possible first-time winners include Brent Marks of Myerstown, PA; Alan Krimes of Denver, PA, JJ Grasso of Middletown, DE, and Aaron Ott of East Berlin, PA. Noblesville, IN’s Bryan Clauson has never claimed a winged Sprint Car victory at Grandview, but does hold two wingless Sprint Car wins.

A $200 bonus has been posted to the top 360 Sprint Car, with a $100 bonus to the second 360 Sprint Car.

The Grandview small-block Modified stars will be out in full force defending their home turf: Current weekly series point leader, Craig VonDohren; 10-time Track Champion, Jeff Strunk; two-time 2016 race winner, Duane Howard; and 4-time Thunder on the Hill winner, Doug Manmiller. Previous Thunder on the Hill modified winners Rick Laubach, Mike Gular, Ryan Godown, and Kevin Hirthler are all expected to be in attendance.

Advance tickets are on sale now and may be ordered by calling 443-513-4456. Please provide your name and the number of tickets requested. Tickets may be picked up and paid for on race night after 3:30 PM. Advance ticket holders may enter the grandstands at 4:30 PM, one half hour prior to the sale of General Admission tickets.

Celebrating the 27th season of racing action NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series always includes fun for the fans with activities such as Pre-Race Pit Tours, the Inside/Out Experience - where fans can sign-up to watch hot laps from the infield, JOE "THE PIZZA DUDE", giveaways, fireworks and appearances by the Thunder Girls.

The Low Down & Dirty Meet and Greet kicks off at 5 PM with drivers Ryan Smith and Ryan Taylor. Fans are encouraged to take photos and get autographs with these popular Sprint Car drivers.

WHEEL-TO-WHEEL: HODNETT HOLDS OFF CLAUSON AND MARKS FOR PARTY AT PATH VALLEY SPEEDWEEK VICTORY

SPRING RUN, PA (June 26, 2016) – Greg Hodnett picked up the 410 Sprint Car victory in the Fred Rahmer Promotions Harry Fletcher Memorial event at the Path Valley Speedway as part of Pennsylvania Sprint Car Speedweek.

Hodnett, of Thomasville, PA, started from the top spot but claiming the $6,600 top prize was no easy task as Hodnett battled with Noblesville, IN’s Bryan Clauson side-by-side for more than 30 circuits.

“Clauson is a fierce competitor. He wins in everything he drives, we raced very hard and very clean. I’m fortunate to compete with someone like him” Hodnett explained to MRN Radio’s Winged Nation host, Steve Post in Victory Lane. “I struggle with these smaller race tracks, I credit this win to my guys who do a great job on this car for these races.”

With Hodnett leading them down to the green flag, trouble brewed early. Rodney Westhafer lightly rolled over in turn 1 bringing the red flag out on the initial start and leading to a complete restart.

Hodnett bolted out in front of the 24-car field, while Lucas Wolfe overtook front-row starter Aaron Ott in the first corner and slide up in front of Hodnett exiting turn four one-lap later.

As the field approached lapped traffic on the sixth circuit, Wolfe and Hodnett would swap the top spot twice. Hodnett pulled inside Wolfe exiting turn two, followed by Wolfe performing a slide job on Hodnett exiting turn four.

Hodnett set steady in the top spot on the eighth lap. With heavy lapped traffic approaching, Clauson – who started in the fifth position – slipped passed Wolfe and into the second position.

Hodnett and Clauson fought wheel-to-wheel, using lapped traffic and crisscrossing grooves. On the 16th circuit Hodnett slid in front of Clauson exiting turn two, forcing Clauson to brake heavily. As Hodnett powered forward Clauson charged back, taking over the top spot briefly just passed the halfway mark, only to forfeit the lead back to Hodnett.

Weaving in and out of lapped traffic on the 27th lap, Hodnett powered off the top groove diving below the cars of Brock Zearfoss and Tyler Ross – a bold move that distanced him from Clauson. Almost simultaneously Brent Mark of Myerstown, PA, came out of nowhere to challenge for the second position.

The field slowed for the final time on lap 32, when Australian competitor Sean Zemunik rolled over in turn 4 forcing a red flag.

A single file restart sealed the deal as Hodnett held off Clauson and Marks to claim his 26th Pennsylvania Sprint Car Speedweek victory. Lucas Wolfe came home in fourth position, Ryan Smith of Kunkleton, PA finished in the fifth spot.

Danny Dietrich of Gettyburg, PA finished in sixth, Ohio invader Cole Duncan finished seventh, Alan Krimes in 8th, Aaron Ott in 9th and Mike Wagner rounded out the top ten.

Collecting $300 for their Heat race wins were Clauson, A.J. Flick, Marks, and Alan Krimes. Heat races were presented by Leffler Energy, Buck Rubs, Freedom Powersports and Emory Transmissions.

Smithburg, Maryland’s Kameron Morral claimed the $1,000 to win, 25 Lap 600cc Micro Sprint feature event. Defending three-time race winner Tyler Walton started on the pole of the event and jumped out front on the initial start, before looping his Juniata Beverage No. 14 T machine in turn four on the first lap and forcing Walton to the rear.

A complete restart handed the lead to Asbury, NJ’s Eric Bodine. Bodine shot out front at the drop of the green flag with Morral and Birdsboro, PA’s Aaron Bollinger right on his tail.

Morral would overtake the top spot on the 19th lap and set the cruise control claiming the victory. Bodine would settle for second, Bollinger in third, Heath Henly in fourth and Garret Bard in fifth.

600cc Micro Sprint heat races were won by Aaron Bollinger, Tyler Walton, Greg Stevens, and Luke Thomas – all collected an additional $100 for their efforts.

A standing room only crowd participated in a full-day of excitement, with the popular Party at the Path event and Truck and Tractor Pull at Hammond’s Grove picnic area.

Three race fans went home with 32” flatscreen televisions courtesy of Leffler Energy.

The next Party at the Path event takes place on Sunday, August 28 at the Path Valley Speedway and will feature the 410 Sprint Cars and the 600cc Micro Sprints.

FRANEK REPEATS IN FIRECRACKER FOR 360 SPRINT CARS;
RINE MAKES HISTORY WITH 100TH CAREER LATE MODEL VICTORY;
MITCH & LEISTER WIN PRO STOCKS & ROADRUNNERS

SELINSGROVE, Pa. -- The start was crucial according to winner Davie Franek, of Wantage, N.J., after the Newville Family of Companies 360 Sprint Car feature was over. Franek marked his second straight win at the speedway as well as his second Firecracker 30 win in a row Saturday night at Selinsgrove Speedway.

Franek went by Mark Smith in turn four on the first lap and never relinquished the race lead. A great battle for third between Larry Kelleher, Matt Campbell, and Derek Locke was interrupted by a yellow flag on lap 10. The field was brought back to Franek's rear bumper and Mark Smith pulled even with Franek on the restart, but quickly settled back into second. Smith would stay there until the checkered flag.

Locke worked by Kelleher for third. Eric Tomecek rounded out the top five finishers. Jason Schultz was sixth followed by the IBEW Local Union 1319 hard charger Nate Snyder. Matt Campbell took the top honors for the 358 engine competitors from Newville Family of Companies and Lelands.com. Campbell finished eighth with Michael Walter and Jim Shuster the top ten finishers.

Franek and Campbell were the sprint car heat race winners.

Coleby Frye picked a good number to allow the 0 car to start at the front. His goal was to stay there for the full 25 laps in the second race of the Moon Shine Camo Route 35 Challenge Series. Frye looked to be the car to beat while Bryan Bernheisel and Jeff Rine ran second and third.

Bernheisel kept Frye in his sights, but was not able to close in until a yellow flag on lap 15 changed the whole outlook on the race. Frye got out of shape on the restart and the top three drivers went three wide on the restart. Frye and Bernheisel made contact and Rine flew into the race lead.

Rine led a hard charging Chad Hollenbeck when another yellow flag bunched up the field on lap 23. Rine was in search of his 100th career Selinsgrove feature win when the green flag flew. Rine got away from Hollenback on the start and never looked back taking win 100. It was Rine's fourth win of the season.

Hollenbeck finished in second with Andy Haus rounding out the podium finishers. Bernheisel finished in fourth. Tim Wilson gained a bunch of spots at the end to finish in fifth. Danny Snyder, Steve Campbell, Coleby Frye, Dylan Yoder, and Mike Lupfer rounded out the top ten finisher. Heat race wins went to Frye, Snyder, and Rine. Jason Smith was the consolation winner.

Lori Croop led the A&A Auto Stores Pro Stocks to the green flag for the popular stock division’s feature event on Saturday night. Croop led the first two laps before ninth place starter Brad Mitch jumped to the inside on the home stretch to take the top spot. Mitch went much of the race unchallenged, but a late race restart gave the field a shot to take the race win away from Mitch.

Tommy Slanker restarted second with one lap to go after grabbing the spot from Matt Wilson. Slanker followed Mitch into turn one and used the inside to challenge Mitch coming to the checkered flag out of turn four. Mitch held on for his second win of the season and his 21st of his career at Selinsgrove Speedway.

Slanker finished in second followed by Wilson. Jason Zook drove the s8 to a fourth place finish after starting 11th. Jake Buck had a strong run to round out the top five finishers. The top ten finishers included Jim Payne, Matt Hornberger, Jeff Ceballa, Nate Herman, and Peanut Heintzelman. There was a pair of new heat race winners for the Pro Stocks on Saturday when Matt Wilson and John Troxell took checkered.

Ryan Leister was challenged for much of the Roadrunner feature by Keith Bissinger. Even on the final tour of the track Bissinger kept the pressure on Leister. Leister power around the final corner and grabbed the final checkered flag of the evening. Bissinger came home in second. Two-time winner this year Dustin Snook, Ray Zook, and Corey Kepner rounded out the five finishers.

There will be no racing next Saturday (July 2nd) at the Speedway. Sunday, July 3, will be race day at 7:30 p.m. with the 410 Sprint Car Speedweek Finale plus the 305 Sprint Cars and the Pro Stocks have been added in a non-point event. The race will pay tribute to Jan Opperman and Dick Bogar.

DEVIN BEIDEL CAPTURES FIRST CAREER SUPER SPORTSMAN WIN
Randy Stoudt Makes in Two Straight in Late Models and Alex Updegraff Takes Second Extreme Win

By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway
YORK HAVEN, PA 6/25/16

Devin Beidel raced to his first career win in Saturday night’s 25-lap Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman feature at Susquehanna Speedway.

Aboard the Reinford Landscapes, Country Butcher Shop/Weston’s Lawn Care/Pickney Racing Engines/Hilton Lock Service No. 19, the Newville, PA driver started fourth on the grid and raced past early race leader Lanny Hake with three laps complete.

Once taking the top spot, Beidel was able to keep the rest of the field at bay as he scored that elusive first career win.

Scott Dellinger came from his 10th starting spot to secure the runner-up finish ahead of Tom Wyckoff, point leader Scott Geesey who started 14th and Adam Wrey.

Completing the top ten finishers were Kenny Edkin, Jay Fannasy, Paul Miller, Russ Mitten and Tony Jackson. Mitten earned the Hard Charger award after starting 24th using his nephew Timmie Barrick’s race car. Mitten blew the motor in his own No. 77 during heat race action.

Heats for the 30 Super Sportsman were won by Rick Barr, Beidel and Davey Walsh.

In what was billed as one of the best races in history at the track, Boyertown, PA driver Randy Stoudt came away with the win in the 25-lap Precise Racing 358 Late Model feature.

Chase Billet led the first seven laps before Charlie Potts took over. Potts’ lead was short-lived as Billet regained the lead on lap 20 as 10th starting Stoudt and Randy Christine, Jr. went three wide for the top spot as the trio raced through the third and fourth corners during lap 20.

Stoudt gained control of the event with 21 laps complete and drove off from the field to post his second straight and third overall win of the year about the Leinbach Motorsports No. NINE machine.

Billet finished second ahead of Christine with 16th starting DJ Myers coming home fourth ahead of Potts with Steve Billet, Shaun Jones, Sam Gallagher, Travis Mease and Kyle Lear rounding out the top ten.

Potts, Lear and C. Billet won heats for the 25 late models. Jason Nace won the consolation.

Alex Updegraff came from his 11th starting spot to post the win in the 50-lap Xtreme Stock feature. Updegraff’s second win of the year came after taking the lead on lap 32 and driving to the win over Matt Wampler, Brian Rehbein, Michael Smith (who led the first 31 laps) and John Frye.

DEWEASE TAKES ROUND ONE OF 2016 PENNSYLVANIA SPEEDWEEK for 39TH CAREER LINCOLN WIN;

Bob Stough holds off Chaney and Montgomery for fifth Lincoln Central PA Legends victory

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 6/25/2016 – Lance Dewease was never really gone. But his performances in a limited number of appearances has amazed even the most doubting fans in 2016.

Dewease started on the pole, followed outside front row starter Lucas Wolfe for the first eight laps, drove by the Zemco #1 in heavy lapped traffic on lap eight to take the lead for good in claiming the $7,000 top prize on what turned out to be opening night of the 26th Annual Pennsylvania Speedweek Saturday night at Lincoln Speedway.

“It’s fun to be back,” said Dewease after scoring his 39th career Lincoln win in 17th Annual Kevin Gobrecht Memorial, “It’s been a long time since they’ve been here, and I haven’t raced here any this year.” It was the first Kreitz car win at Lincoln in ten years.

Once in the lead, Dewease pulled away from the field to a four-second advantage in heavy lapped traffic when the first caution of the event came out for Cory Haas, who made contact with Doug Esh and came to a stop sideways on the back stretch. Haas changed a flat tire and rejoined the race.

Fifth-starting Stevie Smith had worked his way into second for the restart, with Danny Dietrich third after a multi-lap battle with Greg Hodnett.

They were still running first through third when the red flag came out for Gerard McIntyre, who rolled onto his side after contact with Esh on turn four on lap 24.

“The surface is a little different,” said Dewease of his first Lincoln appearance of the year, “We struggled all night. We were pretty good there once we got going. But after that last caution I was just hanging on. I wasn’t that good, and I didn’t know where to run. I saw Stevie and kinda knew where he was probably going to be. When Danny popped to third…you know, he can run anywhere around this place.”

Dietrich found a burst of speed over the final laps to close within two car-lengths of Dewease at the finish, just .284 seconds behind the winner. Smith settled for third, with Hodnett and Wolfe rounding out the top five.

“It’s an honor for me to drive this for Donnie and with Davey working on it,” reflected Dewease, “The whole Kreitz family and the whole crew. We’re just here having fun. It is what it is. We may not have had the best race car we had all year, but we took advantage of a good starting spot here tonight.”

Dewease’s win in the Kevin Gobrecht Memorial gave him the early points lead in the Speedweek series (166), 15 points ahead of Danny Dietrich (151), followed by Hodnett (148), Stevie Smith (143), and Wolfe (135).

Sixth through tenth were 13th-starting Brent Marks, hard charger Aaron Ott (who came from 19th), Brian Montieth, Alan Krimes, and Robbie Kendall.

Fast time in time trials over the 40-car was set by Greg Hodnett with a one-lap time of 13.375-seconds (100.935 MPH). Heats for the sprints were won by Stevie Smith, Jim Siegel, Wolfe, and Krimes. Brock Zearfoss won the B-Main.

Bob Stough won his heat, drew a #6 pill for the feature inversion, and came from sixth to score his fifth career Lincoln win in the Central PA Legends feature.

Stough was the four different leader of the event. Scott Haudeshell led the first two laps from the pole before Lucas Montgomery took the lead on lap three. He led until Mason Chaney wrestled the lead away on lap 16. Stough caught Chaney for the top spot on a lap 19 restart and was scored the leader of the final two laps.

Second through fifth were Chaney, Montgomery, Australian invader Hayden Pascoe, and Travis Perry.

Heats for the 32 Legends were won by Stough, Perry, and Chaney, with Chris McKinney winning the consolation.

Lincoln swings back into action next Saturday night, July 2nd, with the Nouse Signs & Graphics Summer 358 Sprint Series event, PASS/IMCA (305) Sprints, and 600 Xcel Modifieds. Racing gets underway at 7:30 PM, with gates opening at 5:30 PM.

BITTINGER WINS FIRST OF YEAR IN TRAIL-WAY “358” SPRINTS;
Brian Walls takes street stock feature; Cox, Carroll, and Rickrode other TW winners

HANOVER, PA (6/24/2016) – “Where’s the full moon?”

So asked Abbottstown’s Mike Bittinger after scoring his first win of the year in the 25-lap “358” sprint car feature at Trail-Way Speedway Friday night.

Bittinger started on the outside of the front row, outran polesitter Seth Kearchner to the first turn, and led every lap of the event.

“I don’t really like running up front. I’d rather have someone to chase,” said Bittinger after exiting his Apple Automotive/Boulder Pools/Big Mike’s Crabhouse/Newman’s Racing Engines #12 in victory lane, “But I’m glad we started up there tonight because I’m not sure we would have passed anyone. We spun out lining up for the feature last time!”

Red flags marred the first two attempts to start the race. The first was for Dwight Leppo, who flipped in turn two, and the second was for David Holbrook, who turned over in turn three. Both drivers were uninjured, as was Isaac Sneeringer, who flipped hard into the second turn catch fence on lap 15.

“I put the wing back at the start and that was a mistake,” said Bittinger, “So I pushed it back up.”

Crossing second 1.34 seconds behind the winner was Kearchner, with hard charger Doug Hamaker (who came from seventh starting spot), Jeff Halligan, and Cody Fletcher rounding out the top five. Sixth through eighth were Zach Euculano, Kody Hartlaub, and Dalton Dietrich. Brandon Noel and Sneeringer were credited with ninth and tenth.

Qualifiers for the 15 “358” sprinters were won by Leppo and Fletcher.

Brian Walls came from tenth starting spot to win in his first appearance of the year in the 20-lap street stock feature.

Walls took the lead from outside front row starter and race-long leader Zach Myers when Myers got out of shape in turns three and four of lap 12 and drove away to a 1.44-second win.

Second through fifth were Mike Goodwin, ninth-starting Jeremy Stremmel, Doug Bennett, and 13th-starting Matt Wampler.

Heats for the 15 street stocks were won by Eric Johnson and Bennett.

Following a one-hour rain delay, Steven Cox took the lead from polesitter Nick Gower on lap 11 and claimed his first win of the year in the 20-lap Mason/Dixon 270cc micro-sprint feature.

Gower hung on for second, with Bill Laughman, Levi Peck, and Cory Myers completing the top five.

Qualifiers for the 17 micros were won by Peck and Cox.

Robbie Carroll scored his first win of the year in the 15-lap limited stock feature. He became the third leader of the race on lap seven. Julio Perez led the first two laps before Jason Chronister took over. Chronister dropped from the field three laps after Carroll took the lead.

Second through fifth were Matt Chronister (who came from the rear after diving to the pits to remove some debris from the driver’s side of his car on the initial start that led to a caution for debris that was also on the race track), Perez, Sarah Redmond, and Charles Millender.

Heats for the 17 limited stocks were won by Jason Chronister (seventh win in eight heat races this year) and Carroll.

Brothers Mark Rickrode, Jr. and Scott Rickrode finished one-two in the 20-lap Les Coghill Memorial for Vintage Cars. The field was cut in half when six race teams left during the rain delay. It was Mark Rickrode’s first-ever win in his 1874 AMC Gremlin designed to look like the old Kenny Weld modified.

Third through fifth behind the Rickrodes were Randy Minich, Gene Wrightstone, and Stew Wenrich.

Rickrode also won the lone heat for the 12 Vintage Cars.

Next Friday, July 1st, Trail-Way is back in action with the Hoosier Tire Mid-Atlantic 358 Sprint Cars. Joining the Sprints will be the 600 Micro Sprints, Mason Dixon 270 Micro Sprints and the Street Stocks. Gates open at 5:30 p.m., with heats scheduled to begin at 7:45 p.m.

The following day, Saturday, July 2nd, Trail-Way hosts the first of two Junk Car Demolitions of the 2016 season. Joining the “Kings of Crash” Junk Car Demo, will be the Figure 8 and Powder Puff classes. The Limited Stocks will participate in the Trail-Way/Susquehanna Shootout. Gates open at 4:00 p.m., with heats beginning at 6:00 p.m.

$10,000 To Win Williams Grove Speedweek Mitch Smith Memorial Is Friday

305 sprints also in action

6/26/16

Mechanicsburg –Williams Grove Speedway will host the biggest event of the 26th Pennsylvania Speedweek series this Friday, July 1 at 8 pm when it hosts the 28th annual Mitch Smith Memorial for sprint cars at 8 pm, paying a hefty $10,000 to win out of a purse worth over $30,000.

Friday’s Mitch Smith Memorial will use time trials to set the field as do all speedweek events and the feature will be 30 laps in distance.

The entire 2016 speedweek series is sponsored by Always Racing, a pastoral organization that ministers to the motorsports community during times of trauma and also in spiritual need.

A special holiday fireworks display is also slated during this Friday’s program.

The PASS/IMCA 305 sprints will also be on the holiday racing card.

The Mitch Smith Memorial began in honor of the late star in 1989.

Known affectionately to most as the “Linglestown Leadfoot,” Smith was one of the most electric sprint car stars to ever grace the Cumberland County oval and the Central PA region with his talents.

Perhaps his biggest claim to fame was his trumping of the world-renowned USAC sprint car stars when they came east to Williams Grove Speedway in 1971.

For comparison purposes, USAC was in 1971 what the World of Outlaws is to sprint car racing today.

They just simply didn’t get beat.

Except by Mitch Smith in Central Pa in 1971.

The USAC’ers were furious.

The PA drivers and fans were famous.

At the end of his four-decade career in 1978, Mitch Smith had amassed 179 overall total career feature wins including 27 in a sprint car and nine in a super modified at Williams Grove alone.

Smith drove for owners like Mary Flack in the Flying Tiger, John Regester, Gary Wasson and Al Hamilton in the famed No. 77.

After being felled by a massive heart attack in 1988, Smith was posthumously inducted into the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame in 1995.

Fred Rahmer and Lance Dewease have done the best in the Smith Memorial over the years, each owning four victories.

Doug Esh is the defending Smith Memorial champion.

Friday’s event will again be part of the 2016 Hoosier Diamond Series at the oval.

The Williams Grove portion of the 50/50 on the night will be donated the 4 Diamonds Fund.

The 4 Diamonds Fund is an organization set up through the Penn State Children's Hospital in Hershey to help fight childhood cancer.

Adult general admission for the show is $20 with youth ages 13 – 20 admitted for $10.

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

Keep up to date on all the latest speedway news and information by visiting the oval’s official website at www.williamsgrove.com or by keeping up with the oval on Facebook or Twitter.

MATT SHEPPARD WINS SUPER DIRTcar SERIES MODIFIEDS AT WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY
Greg Hodnett is URC Sprint car winner once again

MECHANICSBURG, PA – In the first visit in 10 years by the Super Dirtcar Series Modifieds to Williams Grove Speedway, it was Matt Sheppard taking the $6,000 win Wednesday night. It was the 36th career series win for the four-time champion.
Meanwhile, it was Greg Hodnett beating Mark Smith in the United Racing Club 360-Sprint car feature.
Tim Fuller started on the pole of the 100-lap modified feature and grabbed the early race lead over Ryan Watt and Sheppard. The first caution flew when Stewart Friesen slowed with seven laps completed.
Sheppard, of Waterloo, N.Y., would get by Watt for second on the restart as Fuller continued to lead. Billy Decker was running fourth and former World of Outlaws Sprint car champion Dave Blaney was up to fifth from eighth.
The caution flew when Eldon Payne’s tire shredded on the frontstretch with 19 laps completed. Watt would get back by Sheppard for second. Fuller led a freight train of modifiedS around the inside line of the speedway as the top groove went away.
Fuller held a comfortable lead as Sheppard would get back around Watt for second with a move off turn four and down the frontstretch. Fuller closed on the back of the field and Sheppard closed on him.
The leaders got a break with 37 laps completed when Danny Johnson slowed in turn four. The top three remained the same following the restart, but Blaney moved up to fourth.
Sheppard began to pressure Fuller for the lead. They made contact in turn four and Sheppard was the new leader as they completed lap 53. Watt slowed moving Blaney up to third and bringing out the caution flag.
The top three remained the same following the restart, but another caution flew with 61 completed. Two more cautions slowed the pace.
Blaney tried to take second but couldn’t quite make the pass as they raced into turn one. A third turn spin slowed the field again with 25 to go. Blaney was able to make the pass work this time.
Sheppard initially pulled away, but Blaney was there with 15 laps left. Blaney got to Sheppard’s bumper two times, but couldn’t get to his inside.
Blaney’s final shot came with seven laps to go as the caution flew.
Sheppard got a good restart and controlled the final laps to get the win by 2.702 seconds over Blaney, Fuller, Larry Wight and Decker. Friesen rebounded for sixth and Frank Cozze seventh and Mike Mahaney eighth. Brett Hearn came from the rear to ninth and Keith Flach rounded out the top 10.
“The track starting locking down a little bit early,” said Sheppard. “I decided to ride it out and drive the car nice and straight. On the long runs, it seemed like the guys in front of us would get slower and slower and we’d maintain. I think that’s what won the race for us tonight. I was able to keep the air in the right rear tire. Once we got out front, I wanted to hit my marks and take it easy and drive the thing straight and we were able to do that. To put a win at Williams Grove on my resume means a lot.”
Brett Hearn set overall quick time with a lap of 20.893 seconds. Heat races for the 34 modifieds were won by Hearn, Stewart Friesen, Frank Cozze and Matt Sheppard. Duane Howard won the consolation.
A three-car crash on the frontstretch involving Kody Lehman, Adam Carberry and Will Eggimann brought out the red flag on the initial start of the United Racing Club 360-Sprint car feature.
When the race resumed, Robbie Stillwaggon grabbed the race lead over Jason Shultz, Mark Smith and seventh starter Hodnett.
The caution flew with one lap completed for a spin by Chuck Hebing.
Hodnett had passed Smith before the caution and got Shultz with a pass off turn two. Hodnett was running the bottom and Stillwaggon pounding the top.
Smith moved by Shultz for second as Hodnett and Stillwaggon were about even at the backstretch bridge. They were still close at the flagstand with Stillwaggon leading to complete lap seven.
Hodnett finally made the bottom groove work off turn two to take the lead. Stillwaggon fought back entering turn three in traffic, but Hodnett got back by off turn four to complete lap 10 as the leader.
Smith passed Stillwaggon and had a run on Hodnett coming off the second turn, but the race was slowed when Jason Clauss slowed to a stop on the backstretch with 12 laps completed.
Hodnett pulled away from Smith on the restart. URC point leader Davie Franek passed Shultz and Stillwaggon and was up to third as Hodnett worked the bottom and Smith the top.
Hodnett closed on a group of lapped cars with three laps to go, but stayed smooth and straight on the bottom. Smith closed on the final lap, but Hodnett passed three slower cars in the final turn to keep Smith in second by 1.203 seconds at the checkers.
“The car has been really good,” said Hodnett. “Rider just built this motor this year. It runs really good. We’ve been fortunate to have great starting positions and able to move through the heat races. We were bad in one and two. I thought in three and four as long as we had track position, we’d be okay.”

QUEST FOR RECLAMATION: POSSE COMPETITORS BATTLE TO CLAIM PARTY AT THE PATH VICTORIES ON SUNDAY, JUNE 26

SPRING RUN, PA (June 22, 2016) – The kingpin of the Pennsylvania Posse clan of Sprint Car racers, Fred Rahmer, transitioned from full-time competitor to full-time promoter two years ago -- holding events at Path Valley Speedway in Spring Run, Pennsylvania.

Yet, despite Rahmer’s Posse allegiance, the greatest racers in Central Pennsylvania remain winless at ‘The Path.’

“These guys just can’t get it together enough to beat the outsiders,” Rahmer said of his cohorts. “It’s starting to feel like PA Posse versus the world.”

Outsiders Brady Bacon of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma and Chad Kemenah of Findlay, Ohio have claimed Path Valley victories. While, last year’s Speedweek event was won by Stevie Smith of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma – a de facto Posse victory aboard a Rahmer-owned machine.

Gettysburg, PA’s Danny Dietrich and Dillsburg, PA’s Aaron Ott maintain the highest average finishing positions of all competitors at Path Valley and either could claim victory. Dietrich finished in the runner-up spot in 2015, with TJ Stutts, Lance Dewease, Brent Marks, Ott, Lucas Wolfe, Ryan Taylor and Greg Hodnett all finishing in the top-10.

The Pennsylvania Posse quest for reclamation begins on Sunday, June 26 for the Third Annual Party at the Path 40-lap Harry Fletcher Memorial event paying $6,600 to win, $1,000 for tenth and $400 to take the green flag.

Bonus money for competitors is plentiful with a $500 Eagle Evergreens Quick Time Bonus, heat race wins will be rewarded with a $300 bonus courtesy of individual heat race sponsors: Freedom Power Sports, Buck Rubs, Emory Transmissions, and Pioneer Pole Buildings.

Racers competing in all three Fred Rahmer Promotions/Path Valley Speedway events this season, will be eligible for a random drawing to win a trip to Las Vegas. Airfare and accommodations for two people for three-days/four-nights.

Party at the Path marks the third event of the legendary Pennsylvania Sprint Car Speedweek, ironically enough it’s Rahmer that holds 30 Speedweek wins – the most of any other driver -- and 13 Speedweek Championships.

Also on the card is the popular 600cc Micro Sprints competing in a 25-lap event with $1,000 up for grabs. Micro Sprint heat races will offer an additional $100 to the winner.

600cc Micro Sprint competitor Perfect Attendance bonuses include random drawings for a XXX Micro Sprint Racing Chassis, a $500 Hyper Racing Gift Certificate, and a test session in one of Fred Rahmer’s RBR Racing 410 Sprint Cars. An additional test session will be awarded to the competitor that wins the season-long Micro Sprint Point Standings.

Race fans will be excited to hear that Leffler Energy, supporter of Fred Rahmer Promotions and RBR Racing, will offer up three flatscreen televisions to three lucky fans selected at random.

For the most excitement in all of Franklin County, Party at the Path provides a day chock-full of entertainment!

The event kicks off at 12 PM at Hammond’s Grove Picnic Area located at 19898 Hammond Road – approximate one mile from Path Valley Speedway. Fans will be treated to free food, games, give-a-ways and live music courtesy of popular rock band, Southern Edge. The RBR Racing Leffler Energy 410 Sprint Car will be on display, giving fans an intimate look at the powerful machines.

At 2 PM, Hammond’s Grove transforms into the ultimate display of power, as five-divisions of 1800 horsepower Mod Turbo Tractors competing in a Truck and Tractor Pull presented by Interstate Pullers. General admission Adult tickets for the Tractor Pull are $12 and Children 8-12 are $6.

The night concludes with the ever-exciting 410 Sprint Cars in the 40-Lap Harry Fletcher Tribute Race, as part of Pennsylvania Sprint Car Speedweek. Also on the card, the 600cc Micro Sprints. General Admission tickets at Path Valley Speedway are $20 and children under 12 are admitted FREE! General Pit Access is $30.

A discount of $2 is available for fans attending both events. Fans can purchase General Admission wristbands at the Path Valley Speedway Park starting at noon and can display that wristband at Hammond’s Grove to receive their discount. Fans can also display their Tractor Pull Admission wristband at the Path Valley Speedway and receive the same discount.

A shuttle will be available to transport fans to Hammond’s Grove from Path Valley Speedway and back. Tickets for the Path Valley Speedway event will be available for purchase at the Hammond’s Grove pre-race party.

NAPA AUTO PARTS THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES CONTINUES. . . .

NOW WITH WINGS, BRYAN CLAUSON EYES SECOND GRANDVIEW WIN THIS MONTH, 410 SPRINT SPEEDWEEK SET FOR TUESDAY, JUNE 28

BECHTELSVILLE, PA (June 20, 2016) – The ink is still fresh on the giant check that Bryan Clauson claimed earlier this month after winning the USAC non-wing sprint car feature at Grandview Speedway on June 7. Now, the Noblesville, IN native is Bechtelsville-bound once again to compete with the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series Pennsylvania Sprint Car Speed Week event at Grandview Speedway on Tuesday, June 28. But on this night, Clauson will be racing with a wing all the horsepower it provides. This event is presented by Pioneer Pole Buildings.

The 22nd Annual Speed Week event at the 1/3-mile clay oval features a 35-lap Sprint Car main event, the fourth race of a nine-race stretch for the winged 410 sprint cars. Drivers from across the region will compete for a $5,000 winner’s share. Tenth place will pay $1,000 with $400 just to start the main event.

Also on the card, Grandview’s own NASCAR 358 Modifieds battle in a 30-lap event, with $3,000 up for grabs. This event is a NASCAR point race for the always exciting 358 modifieds.

Time Trials for the 410 Sprint Cars will open the show on Tuesday, June 28 at 7:30 PM. The pit gates will open at 2:30 PM and the Grandstands will open at 5:00 PM.

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY

FRANEK HOLDS OFF KISSINGER FOR WHITCOMB MEMORIAL SPRINT CAR VICTORY;
RINE EDGES CLOSER TO 100TH CAREER SELINSGROVE LATE MODEL VICTORY;
HOFFMAN & SNOOK SCORE PRO STOCK & ROADRUNNER WINS

SELINSGROVE, Pa. -- Selinsgrove Speedway has been the Achilles heel for Davie Franek in 2016. He has been strong on the United Racing Club 360 sprint car tour all season but ironically it took a Patriot Sprint Tour event for him to really shine at the Snyder County half-mile oval Saturday night.

Franek, of Wantage, N.J., showed the way early on in the Newville Family of Companies 360 sprint car Joe Whitcomb Memorial with the night's quick timer and most recent feature winner Ryan Kissinger in chase. Kissinger made a move in lap traffic to pull even with Franek, but it was to no avail as Franek pulled away to the victory. It was Franek's first win of the year at Selinsgrove Speedway but the tenth of his career.

Jason Shultz ran by Kissinger on the closing laps to take the runner up spot. He never had a chance at the race lead though as the laps wound down. Mark Smith and Eric Tomecek finished out the top five starters.
Patriot Sprint Tour point leader Jared Zimbardi finished in sixth followed by Cody Keller, Derek Locke, Curt Michael, and Dane Lorenc.

360 sprint car heat races were taken by Ryan Kissinger, Joe Trenca, and Jason Schultz for the Patriot Sprint Tour. The night’s fast time award for the 360 Sprint Cars was presented by Fast Tees in memory of
Jim Nace. The award went to Ryan Kissinger with a time of 17.792 and an average speed of 107 mph.

Larry Kelleher was the IBEW Local 1319 Union Hard Charger.

Danny Snyder showed the way early on in the Jeff's Auto Body & Recycling Center Super Late Models. Snyder looked very strong before a yellow flag on lap seven evened things back up and Dave Zona began to shine. Zona made a bold move around the outside on a restart to grab second and then a timely yellow flag gave him an equalized restart.

A big wreck ensued on the restart taking out every car from sixth to tenth except Jeff Rine. Rine would use his second chance at life in this race to the best of his ability and shoot into third on the restart. Zona took the race lead away from Snyder on lap 11 before Rine wrestled it away on lap 13.

Zona kept pace with Rine for the next couple of laps before driving away on his way to his 99th career Selinsgrove feature win. The battle for second was a three car battle all the way to the checkered flag with Zona holding off Snyder and Matt Cochran.

Steve Campbell rounded out the top five starters followed by Bryan Bernheisel, Donnie Schick, Coleby Frye, Jason Smith, and Jim Yoder. Late Model heat races went to Bryan Bernheisel, Tony Adams, and Danny Snyder.

AJ Hoffman started from the pole of Saturday night's A&A Auto Stores Pro Stock feature and once he got in front he never looked back leading all 15 laps on his way to his 43rd career Selinsgrove Speedway win and his second win of the season. He is the divisions’ first repeat winner. Jake Buck and Tommy Slanker kept the pressure on Hoffman early in the event but as the feature ran through Hoffman pulled away. He said they made many changed to the car before the feature and the changes sure paid off. Buck held onto second before Brandon Moser darter by the battle for second to take the runner up spot. Buck held off Slaker for third at the line. Slanker and Kurt Wray rounded out the top five finishers.
Pro Stock heat races were won by Brad Mitch and AJ Hoffman.

The Roadrunners closed out the night’s racing action with a thriller of a feature event between Dustin Snook who was searching for his second win of the season and Keith Bissinger. Snook stayed loyal to the outside line for the whole race while Bissinger plugged away on the inside.

Bissinger pushed the issue a little too far just past halfway and his machine spun in the turn. Bissinger was not out of it though! He drove back through the field into second. The race was Snook's at that point though as he took his second win of the season.

Snook said in victory lane the track was tricky but he knew he needed to stay on the outside to claim the win. Bissinger was second followed by Butch Scaffer, Smith Cope, and Tom Underwood in the top five. Miranda Minium and Ken Schreffler rounded out the field.

Reeser, of Orwigsburg has been the dominant driver this season on the 305 Sprint car tour and he added another track to his season stats with his latest win at Susquehanna.

Zach Newlin came from his eighth starting spot to bring home the runner-up finish ahead of Mark Watkins, Grube and Colby Dice as Scott Lutz, Kyle Ganoe, Austin Burke, Billy Ney and Ken Duke completed the top ten finishers.

Dice, Lutz, Reeser and Burke won heats for the 34 PASS/IMCA Sprints while Andrew Hake was the consolation winner.

Stough started third and grabbed the top spot from Chad Earnst with three laps down and never looked back in an event that was stopped by two red flags for fires. There were no driver injuries.

Stough, who has two wins at other area speedways in 2016 was followed by Earnst, Scott Houdeshell, 15th starter Mason Chaney and 13th starter Travis Perry. Completing the top ten were Austin Bellemare, Greg Burd, Chris Transeau, Jason Gastley and Tony Markovich.

Bellemare, Reed Salony and Earnst were heat winers for the 27 cars pitside.

PRS 2016 – Racing through a new decade with a new attitude! Port Royal Speedway

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

Hollenbeck And Yoder Lock Together For Port Royal Late Model Thriller

Hodnett wins sprints, Fedder wins econo lates, Kepner takes xtreme stocks

6/19/16

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Greg Hodnett started eighth and drove through the field to win the 25-lap 410-sprint car feature at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night to record his sixth oval checkers of the season, worth $3,200.

In the 22-lap super late model feature, a wild and thrilling finish accentuated the suspenseful event with Chad Hollenbeck stealing the victory at the finish line over Dylan Yoder.

The 18-lap econo late main was taken by Tim Fedder while Corey Kepner took the win in the 15-lap xtreme stock feature.

Second starter Doug Esh took the lead at the start of the sprint car feature over Mike Erdley before the first caution flag unfurled with two laps in, finding Aaron Ott racing third with Hodnett already up to fourth.

Hodnett drove by Ott at the new green and took second from Erdley a lap later.

Esh entered the backmarkers with the lead on the eighth tour following closely by Hodnett before another yellow flag bunched the field with 15 laps to go.

Esh tried his best to hold off Hodnett, running the top line while Hodnett worked the middle and bottom lanes but it proved to be of no use as Hodnett easily drove right through the slick to power by Esh as the pair shot onto the backchute on lap 13.

Hodnett began driving away once in control but saw his pace slowed with nine laps to go for a stopped Esh on the frontchute.

Ott, ninth starter Brent Marks and seventh starter Lucas Wolfe followed for the restart and when action resumed Wolfe howled around the top lane to make a two-car pass, first getting Marks in the first corner before overtaking Ott in the third and fourth turns.

Once into second, Wolfe tried to close in on the distance between himself and the leader but couldn’t muster a challenge, instead crossing the finish line 1.763 seconds behind at the finish.

Ott rode home third followed by Marks and Mike Wagner.

Sixth through 10th went to Ryan Taylor, Blane Heimbach, Brock Zearfoss, Curt Stroup and Dylan Cisney.

Heats went to Marks, Hodnett and Wolfe with Scott Wilson scoring the consolation.

The spectacle that was the super late model main went non-stop with polesitter Dylan Yoder leading all but the final few yards.

Chad Hollenbeck started fourth in the field and overtook Tim Smith Jr. for second on the third tour while beginning to spew smoke from the rear of his racer.

Yoder raced into the rear of the field with 12 laps to go followed by Hollenbeck and as the race wore on it seemed that Hollenbeck was getting slightly stronger despite mechanical ills while running the inside lane while Yoder began to slip just slightly while using the high line.

On several occasions, as the smoke grew heavier out of Hollenbeck’s machine, the Montrose speedster was able to get underneath Yoder in the corners only to watch as Yoder mustered just enough strength to get back out in front.

With two laps to go, Hollenbeck took a serious shot as Yoder washed up the track in the second turn but again Yoder used a slingshot move on the cushion to pull back even and then drive ahead as the pair neared the third corner.

Working heavy traffic with two cars racing for position just ahead of him, Yoder took the white flag still in command with absolutely no breathing room over Hollenbeck.

The pair set their machines into the third turn using the same lines they had worked the entire distance but this time Yoder’s drift around the top got just far enough around to allow Hollenbeck to nose out in front as the pair came onto the frontstretch.

And then contact occurred as they approached the flagstand with Yoder getting turned somewhat left into the side of Hollenbecks’ racer.

This in turn forced Hollenbeck’s machine to turn somewhat right and into Yoder’s car and nearly sideways as the pair crossed the finish line locked against one another before Yoder bounced off of Hollenbeck’s car into the first turn, spinning in front of the rest of the field.

Hollenbeck’s nose got across the finish line first and he then pulled his smoke-laden machine into the winner’s circle to claim his second oval win of the year by a shocking .137 margin that left the fans and officials speechless.

Yoder was a disappointed second followed by Smith Jr., Jeff Miller and Andy Haus.

Sixth through 10th went to Tim Wilson, Mike Lupfer, Matt Parks, Billy Wampler and Kyle Hardy.

Heats went to Trent Brenneman, Scott Flickinger and Haus.

Tim Fedder took over the lead from Derrick Garman on the fourth tour of the econo late model feature.

Fedder was never challenged the rest of the distance as he drove away to a nearly two second victory, the third of his career at the track.

Jason Nace muscled second away from Garman on the seventh tour and finished with the spot followed by Devin Hart, Todd Snook and Garman.

Heats went to Hart and Tim Krape.

The xtreme stock main event to Corey Kepner but only after early leader Bill Powell spun while leading with four laps completed.

Kepner saw Kevin Imes take over second on the final lap with Charlie Bryner finishing third followed by a surging Powell and Tyler Amtower.

ANOTHER 410 SPRINT CAR THRILLER AT LINCOLN; HOGUE IN VICTORY LANE THIS TIME;

Shaffer ninth winner in 10 races in 358 sprint cars; Enders tracks down Criswell for super sportsman win

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 6/18/2016 – Dover’s Austin Hogue caught race-long leader Tyler Ross as the two leaders were crossing under the white flag to score his first win of the year in the 25-lap 410 sprint car feature at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

“I didn’t want to have to work that hard!” said Hogue upon exiting his BAPS Auto Paints and Supply/Livingston Lawn Care/Abe Service Company #52 in victory lane, “Tyler ran me clean and it was an awesome race. You feel bad taking ‘em on the last lap…I don’t know what to say I’m so excited because it’s been one of those years.”

“Fast cars, but just not able to get it accomplished here,” added Hogue after scoring his second Lincoln win, “It’s a huge weight off my shoulders. We’ve been on and off. This consistency thing has been a struggle for us, but luckily we got it done here tonight and I can’t thank the guys enough.”

Hogue, who started third, passed Gerard McIntyre, Jr. for second on a sixth-lap restart and chased outside front row starter Ross for the next 18 laps. The race-winning move came as the two leaders raced through lapped traffic exiting turn four of lap 24.

“I wasn’t catching him on the top and I knew Gerard was down there,” said Hogue, “It was worth the shot and I was hoping the rubber would come in. It did at the very end, and luckily it came in just in time.”

A disappointed Ross finished second, with McIntyre, ninth-starting Brian Montieth, and points leader Alan Krimes rounding out the top five. Sixth through tenth were Cory Haas, Jim Siegel, 14th-starting Chad Trout, Mike Bittinger, and Brandon Rahmer.

Heats for the 26 410 Sprints were won by Montieth, Freddie Rahmer, and Haas.

Adrian Shaffer came from eighth starting spot to score his first Lincoln win of the year in the 20-lap 358 sprint car feature. Shaffer was already in the top five by the end of the first lap and was running third by the end of lap three. He passed Tyler Esh for second on lap 11 and drove around Brie Hershey for the race lead on lap 15.

That was the last of four lead changes of the event. Friday night Williams Grove winner Brie Hershey led the first lap from her outside front row starting spot before fourth-starting Esh took over. He they led for the next five laps before Hershey reclaimed the lead on lap eight.

Tenth-starting Matt Campbell came on late to pressure Shaffer for the lead in lapped traffic over the final four laps of the non-stop event, timed at 5 minutes, 44.6 seconds. He settled for second, with Hershey, Doug Hammaker, and 12th-starting Jeff Halligan rounding out the top five.

Heats for the 28 358 Sprints were won by Dwight Leppo, Jeff Rohrbaugh, and Hammaker, with Chandler Leiby winning the consolation.

Mike Enders caught race-long leader Chad Criswell on lap 17 and drove away to his third career Lincoln win in the 25-lap super sportsman feature event. Criswell crossed second .62 seconds behind the winner, with polesitter Scott Dellinger, Paul Miller, and Timmie Barrick completing the top five.

Heats for the 18 Super Sportsman were won by Criswell and Doug Dodson, who dropped from the feature field while running third.

Lincoln swings back into action next Saturday night, June 25th the Annual Pennsylvania Speedweek 17th Annual Kevin Gobrecht Memorial for 410 sprints ($7,000 to win) plus Central PA Legends. Time trials get underway at 7:30 PM, with gates opening at 5:30 PM.

Buckwalter Wins Hotly Contested Williams Grove Speedway Sprints,

Lady Racer Hershey Kicks Off Nouse Summer Series For 358 Sprints With Win

6/17/16

Mechanicsburg – “The Royersford Rocket,” Steve Buckwalter won a thrilling and hotly contested sprint car event at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, holding off the furious challenges of Brian Montieth, Danny Dietrich and Greg Hodnett to pick up the victory.

Elsewhere, the kickoff of the 2016 Nouse Signs and Graphics 358 Sprint Summer Series saw the $1,000 victory go to lady racer Brie Hershey of Enola.

Buckwalter slid to the outside of the front row for the start of the 25-lap 410-sprint car main when Chad Trout failed to start the event.

However polesitter Rodney Westhafer had things well in hand when the race began and was leading over Buckwalter on the second tour when he spun his car in the fourth turn at the same time as Lucas Wolfe slowed with a flipped up front wing.

This handed control to Buckwalter who saw Aaron Ott blast from fourth to second on the restart and begin challenging for the lead.

Ott pulled a slider on Buckwalter in the fourth turn as the pair raced to complete lap nine only to see Buckwalter drop off of the cushion and reclaim command and all the while the front duo were racing one another, moving forward was Montieth from 12th starting spot, Danny Dietrich from ninth and Greg Hodnett from 11th.

Buckwalter was still doing his best to keep Ott at bay when the red flag appeared with 13 laps down for a frontstretch series of flips by Todd Allen.

It was Allen whom Buckwalter had just put a lap down as the pair exited the fourth turn that ended up biting the outside rail before catapaulting up and forward into the wall and catch fence.

Buckwalter had Ott, Montieth, Dietrich and Hodnett in tow for the new green and as the final 12 laps went non-stop, so was the action for the lead and win.

With five laps to go, the front four cars were under a blanket with no more than one car length between each of them as they sliced and diced high and low for the win.

Montieth threw down a major slide job in the second turn of the 21st lap only to see Buckwalter vault back out in front as the pair shot onto the backstretch and all the while both Dietrich and Hodnett were waiting to pounce.

Two laps later, Montieth layed down another huge slider in the second corner to gain command and again Buckwalter retook the top spot however this time as Montieth slid sideways Dietrich bit fast on the bottom and drove up off of the low groove into second as both he and Buckwalter overtook Montieth.

Dietrich then made his attempts for the win with Buckwalter on the high cushion however the Gettysburg driver came up just short at the finish with Buckwalter scoring the payday by a scant .164-second margin.

It was Buckwalter’s seventh career victory at the oval.

“I could hear them back there,” Buckwalter said of his three challengers.

“I don’t like winning that way. I played a lot of defense there but then a wins a win.”

Montieth was third followed by Hodnett and Freddie Rahmer.

Sixth through 10th went to Aaron Ott, Cory Haas, Alan Krimes, Doug Esh and Brock Zearfoss.

Heats went to Alan Krimes, Lucas Wolfe and Rodney Westhafer with Rick Lafferty claiming the consolation.

Beautiful lady racer Brie Hershey would end up leading all 25-laps of the 358 sprint main however to say she cruised to the win would be incorrect.

For most of the race she had the lead well in hand but a late race challenge developed from 12th starter Doug Hammaker.

On a lap 16 restart, Hammaker blasted from sixth to third, driving to the outside and around Kevin Nouse, Troy Wagaman Jr. and Kyle Denmyer.

And then with seven laps to go, Hammaker disposed of Nyle Berkes for second in order to have a clear shot at the leader when a final caution flag bunched the field on lap 19.

Hershey went for the low block when action resumed as Hammaker committed to the top and then as Hershey scrubbed speed while sliding up across the track, Hammaker shot into the lead however Hershey was stout enough to not led Hammaker get away and she motored back alongside and into control on the backchute.

This gave her the edge she needed to the finish to pick up the win, her third career Williams Grove checkers.

Hammker rode home second followed by Berkes, Nouse and Denmyer.

Sixth through 10th went to Wagaman, Matt Findley, Todd Rittenouse Jr., Glenndon Forsythe and David Holbrook.

Holbrook was the Consumer Insurance Agency Hard Charger for driving from 23rd spot up to 10th.

Heats went to Findley, Denmyer and Hammaker with Rich Eichelberger scoring the consolation.

THE CHANCE OF A LIFETIME: MICRO SPRINT RACERS CAN WIN A RAHMER 410 SPRINT CAR DRIVING EXPERIENCE

SPRING RUN, PA (JUNE 17, 2016) – They’re the fastest race cars on dirt – 410 Sprint Cars. The pinnacle of dirt track racing experiences, and there’s no better first-time teacher than Central Pennsylvania Sprint Car Legend, Fred Rahmer. That is exactly what Thomasville, Pa’s Micro Sprint racer, Brad Weber learned this past week after completing the 410 test session he won at Rahmer’s Party at the Path events.

Fred Rahmer Promotions offered up a 410 Sprint Car driving experience to two 600cc Micro Sprint competitors – one session for the series Champion, Tyler Walton and the second selected at random from the group of drivers that competed in all of the Rahmer/Path Valley Speedway events in 2015.

“This car has so much power,” Weber said after the test. “It’s so easy to break the tires loose, this was just awesome.”

Weber, a 29-year-old racer that competes regularly at Trailway and Path Valley Speedways, relished in the once-in-a-lifetime experience.

“This has been such a great experience,” Weber continued. “This is a $75,000 race car and for the Rahmer family to give me this opportunity is great. It’s probably the only time I’ll ever get behind the wheel of a 410.”

Fred Rahmer Promotions offers up multiple Perfect Attendance bonuses. Competitors that participate in all three of the Rahmer events at Path Valley Speedway will be eligible for perfect attendance bonuses. These bonuses include random drawings for a XXX Micro Sprint Racing Chassis, a $500 Hyper Racing gift certificate, and a test session in one of the Fred Rahmer’s RBR 410 Sprint Cars. An additional test session will be awarded to the 2016 Party at the Path 600cc Micro Sprint Champion.

“I’d recommend everyone take advantage of this opportunity,” Weber concluded. “Who better than Fred Rahmer to teach you how to drive a 410 Sprint Car?”

The 2016, Party at the Path season kicks off on Sunday, June 26, where 600cc winged Micro Sprint competitors can compete for a $1,000 top prize in their 25-lap main event. Along with the $1,000 jackpot, Micro Sprint heat races will pay $100.

RANDY STOUDT IMPRESSIVE IN CARL BILLET MEMORIAL WIN
Russ Mitten Gets First Super Sportsman Win while Chris Heller Tops Street Stocks

By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway
YORK HAVEN, PA 6/11/16

As the memory of all-time leading Susquehanna Speedway late model winner and track champion Carl Billet was being remembered, Randy Stoudt put on a performance that the late Billet did so many times during his illustrious racing career before his untimely death three years ago.

Piloting the famous Leinbach Motorsports No. NINE late model, Stoudt wheeled his machine from his 19th starting spot to claim the 40-lap Carl Billet Memorial Saturday night at the York Haven track.

The win was the second of the season for the Pottstown driver as he and his team earned the $1,500 payday following his impressive drive through the field.

Following a six car melee on the start, front row starter Brad Shank set the pace through the first 25 laps of the Billet Memorial before giving way to Randy Christine on the 26th circuit.

Christine led for three laps before turning the top spot over the Stoudt who then drove off from the field to score the win. Six cautions closed the field following the big lap one crash.

Christine settled for the runner-up spot followed by track point leader Jake Jones, Ralph Morgan and Billet’s son Steve who started 13th. Completing the top 10 finishers were Chris Knopp, Matt Nailor, Shaun Jones, Sam Rial and Matt Murphy.

Christine set a new one lap track record in time trials with a lap of 18.015 seconds.

Heats for the 30 cars were won by Jones, Jim Yoder and Chase Billet. Chase Billet also won the dash.

After several early season good runs, Russ Mitten finally visited victory lane in the 25-lap Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman feature.

Mitten had worked his way from 10th into second spot when race leader Kevin Nouse lost a motor on lap 23 turning the top spot over to Mitten.

Mitten, of Newville was able to keep his Newville Electric Services, RPM Chassis out front over the final circuit to score his first win of the year as he became the sixth different winner in seven Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman races this season.

Bruce Buckwalter, Jr led the first four laps before Nouse took the top spot. But Buckwalter raced back into the lead on lap six before Nouse returned to the top spot and led until his motor expired.

Chad Criswell finished in the runner-up spot ahead of Mike Enders, Hard Charger Scott Geesey up from the 15th starting spot and Doug Dodson as Scott Dellinger, Tony Jackson, Kenny Edkin, Buckwalter and Troy Rhome rounded out the top 10 finishers.

Nouse, Davey Walsh and Devin Beidel won heats for the 31 Super Sportsman with Rick Barr topping the consolation.

Chris Heller led all 20 laps of a caution-filled street stock feature to score his first win of the season.

Heller became the fourth winner in five races this season as he dominated the feature event.

Jasen Geesaman finished second but failed post race tech and was disqualified as Chris Derr, Mike Potts, Travis Horan and Eric Tripp finished in the top five.

Horan, Tripp, Cory Phillips and Geesaman won heats for the 36-car street stock field with Jason Townsend winning the consolation.

Susquehanna Speedway returns to action on Saturday June 18th as the PASS/IMCA 305 Sprints return to the track joined by the Street Stocks, Xtreme Stocks (which will be the Trail-Way Shootout), ServiceMaster Clean Central PA Legends and Mini Vans. .

Bryan Clauson’s Circular Insanity Tour Storms Port Royal For USAC Win

Miller and Irvin claim 305s and econos

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

6/11/16

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Noblesville, Indiana’s Bryan Clauson stormed into Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night on his 2016 circular insanity tour as part of the 10th annual USAC Eastern Storm tour itself and by the time the rowdy event had passed over, Clauson had etched his historic name in the record books of the historic oval.

Clauson stormed forward from deep in the pack to claim the 30-lap, $6,000 USAC National Sprint Series main event and become the 183rd different driver to win a sprint car main at Port Royal.

In the 305 sprint main two-time Port Royal series champion Jeff Miller drove to victory while Eric Irvin scored in the 355 econo late model championship.

A total of 26 USAC sprints entered Port Royal action with Chase Stockon of Fort Branch, Indiana, setting fast time over the field with a lap of 19.148 seconds.

USAC champions Dave Darland and Brady Bacon found themselves parked on the front row for the start of the feature event.

Darland darted into the lead over Bacon at the start with Clauson taking the green from the 11th hole on the grid.

A fierce battle for third developed between Stockon and California’s Thomas Meseraull a few laps into the race with the pair exchanging the spot back and forth before disaster struck on the fifth tour.

As Meseraull raced to the outside of Stockon in the fourth corner, his car kicked out and nailed the frontstretch wall, sending him into a violent series of frontstretch flips in front of the grandstand.

Meseraull vaulted up into the catch fence with enough altitude to allow defending Port Royal USAC winner Robert Ballou to blast underneath his careening car while it was up in the air.

Luckily, Meseraull escaped serious injury.

Darland had Bacon, Stockon and Ballou lined up behind for the new green and Darland continued to lead at first before Bacon started making stabs for control.

Oklahoma’s Bacon completed an outside sweep of the third and fourth turns to take command from Darland with eight away while Ballou pushed his way forward using the outside lane as well.

Ballou was up to second with Clauson still well out of the picture on the 11th tour.

A caution for Chris Windom at the halfway point bunched the field with California’s Ballou glued to Bacon’s bumper for the return to action and a slider in turns three and four netted him the lead with 17 complete and once in front Ballou rocketed away with the lead, looking assured of his second Port Royal USAC win in a row.

Another yellow flag with 12 laps to go now found Clauson just getting up to sixth spot.

Stockon was next to flex his muscle at the front, after chugging along in third all during the mid stages, he picked off Bacon with 10 laps to go and was poised to mount a challenge until a blown motor saw him slow with seven laps to go.

And that’s when things really went haywire as a bizarre and dramatic turn of events saw leader Ballou pit under caution due to a loosened power steering line.

This handed the lead back to Bacon and Clauson suddenly found himself second instead of fourth after really coming to life with 10 laps to go, having blasted from sixth to fourth behind Stockon.

And with that, Clauson was in his office behind the wheel for the restart and a big slider in the third corner saw him take command and begin to run away for what would be a 2.012 second margin over Bacon at the finish.

“This place is a little big for me to be winning,” Clauson exclaimed of his usual prowess on smaller, tighter bullring type tracks.

“I bet if you watched the first 10 laps of that race you didn’t think we’d be sittin’ here.”

Bacon rode home second followed by 12th starter Max McGhee of Camby, Indiana, Darland and CJ Leary of Greenfield, Indiana.

Sixth through 10th went to Jerry Coons Jr., Shane Golobic, a rebounding Ballou with fixed steering, Carmen Perigo and Isaac Chapple.

Heats went to Ballou, Leary and McGhee with Aaron Farney taking the B Main.

The first heat saw Ballou and Shane Cottle racing hard for the lead when Cottle flipped out over the third turn fence, escaping injury.

Huntingdon’s Jeff Miller wired the field for the 18-lap 305 sprint main, finishing ahead of Tyler Reeser, Dave Grube, point leader Nate Gramley and 20th starter Dave Brown Jr.

It was Miller’s first oval win of the season.

Heats went to Reeser, Grube and Miller with John Martin scoring the consolation.

Devin Hart looked like an early favorite for the econo late model main, jumping from his poled starting spot into the lead and pulling away.

Third starter Eric Irvin drove into second on the third lap but was unable to close any distance for the lead until suddenly with 10 laps completed he dramatically closed in.

Irvin then drove by and took the win, his first of the season, with Andrew Yoder getting by Hart for second.

Hart finished third, with no power steering since the eighth circuit.

Tim Fedder was third with Tim Krape finishing fifth.

Heats went to Fedder and Hart.

HODNETT QUALIFIES FOR SEPTEMBER LINCOLN DIRT CLASSIC WITH SATURDAY SHOWCASE WIN;

Scores $7,000 victory with last turn pass

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 6/11/2016 – The thrillers just keep coming at Lincoln Speedway.

This time it was Central PA point series leader Greg Hodnett who had the fans on their feet, sliding under race-long leader Lucas Wolfe exiting the final turn to claim his third win of the year in Saturday night’s 30-lap Leffler Energy Dirt Classic Showcase.

“We never touched,” said Hodnett over the din of boos which were there to meet him in victory lane, “I had to do what I had to do to win. I had a good car. They were out in front, and we chased him down and lucky enough to pass him on the last lap.”

The event included a last lap challenge which polesitter and outside front row starter Lucas Wolfe turned down to go for the top prize and an automatic qualifying spot for Lincoln’s September 24th Third Annual Dirt Classic.

Ryan Smith, who was slated to start third, accepted the last row challenge, and earned $2,050 by advancing from 24th staring spot to finish 15th.

Although he started on the pole, Hodnett lost the drag race to turn one and chased Wolfe the first 29 and three-quarter laps. When the two leaders first hit lapped traffic on lap ten, Wolfe had nearly a two-second lead. He increased the advantage to 2 and-a-half seconds with ten laps to go.

But heavy lapped traffic allowed Hodnett to close the gap as the laps wound down. He began peaking under the Zemco #1 in the turns with three laps to go.

“Lucas was having trouble getting through one and two. He wanted to be up top, and there were a couple of times he split it and went to the middle. That gave me a lot of momentum,” said Hodnett, “Heading into turn three I thought we were faster and we needed to get off turn four better. When he got caught behind the lapped cars, I made my move. I have watched Brian Montieth and Danny Dietrich and the guys that run good do it every time they come here. I’ve been on the receiving end of that slider, so we just put ourselves in a position to get in front of him and make him back off.”

As the two front-runners exited the final turn, Wolfe struck the outside guardrail and wrestled his sprinter home second.

Third through fifth were Stevie Smith, Brent Marks (who came from 14th starting spot), and Gerard McIntyre, Jr. Sixth through tenth were Danny Dietrich, Adam Wilt, Chase Dietz, Aaron Ott, and Brian Montieth.

Fast time in time trials over the 34-car field was set by Brandon Rahmer with a one-lap time of 13.706-seconds. Heats were won by Montieth, Wolfe, Stevie Smith, and Robbie Kendall, with Brandon Rahmer winning the B-Main. And, of course, Greg Hodnett won the Dash.

Lincoln swings back into action next Saturday night, June 18th, with a three-division show that includes the 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints, and Super Sportsman. Heats will get underway at 7:30 PM, with gates opening at 5:30 PM.

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Ten years passed since Selinsgrove Speedway ran a special Friday night 410 sprint car race, and the wait was worth it when the division took the spotlight in the 25-lap “Friday Night Lights” main event with no fewer than four different leaders taking a shot at the $3,500 win.

At the checkered flag, Greg Hodnett of York held off Brent Marks of Myerstown and Lucas Wolfe of Mechanicsburg by less than a one-second margin separating first from third. The victory was Hodnett’s 10th of the season and 17th career at Selinsgrove in 410 racing at the wheel of the Lelands.com No. 27.

Tommy Slanker also held off challenges to score his first career pro stock victory in the division’s 15-lap main event.

Selinsgrove Speedway will be in action at 7 p.m. this Sunday, June 12, with the Appalachian Mountain Late Model Speedweek Series Finale plus limited late models. Track gates will open at 5 p.m. There is no racing at the track Saturday, June 11.

Outside front row starter TJ Stutts pulled into the lead at the start of the 410 sprint car feature. On the first two circuits, Stutts and polesitter Brock Zearfoss dueled for the lead. Meanwhile fifth-place starter Brent Marks raced third as sixth-place starter Greg Hodnett advanced to fourth on the third circuit.

Stutts, who won back-to-back Friday night 410 sprint car races in March of 2006, saw his hopes of keeping his Friday night winning streak alive go away on lap six when his car lost power on the frontstretch and coasted into the pit area. Zearfoss took command of the field with Marks applying pressure in traffic.

On the 10th lap, Marks made an exciting dive to the inside of Zearfoss entering turn three for the lead only to have the red flag unfurl when Scott Wilson hit the fourth turn wall and roll over in front of the leaders. Wilson escaped injury.

When the race resumed, a three-car war on wheels unfolded for the lead entering turn one between Zearfoss, Marks, and Hodnett. Marks took the lead on lap 12 with a pass by Zearfoss in turn three. A lap later, Hodnett drove into second.

The final 10 laps produced some of the most intense sprint car racing of the season as ninth-place starter Lucas Wolfe showed some speed and made it a three-car battle to the finish. On the 18th circuit, Hodnett took the lead in turn four when Marks drifted high. However, Marks and now Wolfe closed in on Hodnett in lapped traffic. Both Marks and Wolfe took shots at Hodnett to no avail.

At the checkered flag, Hodnett was victorious by just .47 of a second over Marks with Wolfe crossing the line just .91 of a second behind Hodnett in third. Ryan Smith and Blane Heimbach completed the top five.

Second-place starter Matt Hornberger led the first lap of the pro stock feature after a lap one restart for a three-car tangle in turn two. Fifth-place starter Adam Campbell made a charge into second on the restart and came away with the lead on lap two.

By lap six, eighth-place starter Tommy Slanker made his way to the front of the pack and powered into the runner up spot. With five laps to race, Slanker moved into striking distance of Campbell, who spun a lap later on the backstretch.

Slanker inherited the lead and drove to a mere 1.28 second margin of victory over Kurt Wray, Brad Mitch, Curtis Lawton, and Matt Hornberger.

WINDOM WITHSTANDS CLAUSON'S CHARGE
IN HORN/SCHINDER MEMORIAL AT THE GROVE


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
6/10/16

Mechanicsburg, PA.........Chris Windom was able to fend off a furious late-race rally by Bryan Clauson to win in the return of champ car racing to Williams Grove Speedway after a 35-year hiatus in Friday night's "Horn/Schindler Memorial" 100-lap USAC Silver Crown race.

C.J. Leary was the first car to hit the track for ProSource Qualifying and the first to break Steve Kinser's long-standing one-lap track record from 1981 by three and a half seconds. None of the remaining drivers were able to reach the bar that the Greenfield, Indiana driver set, which placed him on the pole for the main event.

Leary and outside front row starter Justin Grant engaged in a side-by-side battle for the top spot on the opening lap with Leary assuming and maintaining control throughout the early stages. However, turn four proved to be a Bermuda Triangle of sorts in the first quarter of the race, plaguing a bevy of drivers that halted the action on four separate instances involving three different drivers.

Race leader Leary had seen nothing but daylight in front of him during the first several laps, but on the lap 29 restart, all Leary had was smoke in his eyes as a continuous plume billowed from the headers of the number 30. Leary began to slow dramatically, eventually coming to a stop in the first turn one lap later before being towed off to the pit area. The night for April's "Sumar Classic" winner at the Terre Haute Action Track was finished after such a strong performance in his first visit to the Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania track.

Justin Grant inherited the lead for the lap 35 restart, but, by lap 37, Windom had sliced into Grant's lead, setting Windom up for an outside turn four pass to take the top spot.
Meanwhile, Clauson was picking cars off at a rapid pace from his 16th starting position, crossing over from the topside to the inside of Mark Smith for fourth out of turn 4 on lap 39.

Windom sailed away on a comfort cruise after the race's final caution flew for the stopped car of Austin Nemire on lap 40. The Canton, llinois driver built his lead to a full-straightaway advantage with 35 laps to go.

Yet, Clauson was determined not to give in yet, taking third from Grant on lap 65 and sliding up in front of Brady Bacon for second on lap 69. However, Clauson still had a long row ahead of him to catch Windom who was on cruise control up front.

With 10 laps to go, some fans were seen leaving the grandstands with the feeling that the conclusion would be inevitable with Windom rolling to an easy victory. It appeared that Clauson would need a caution to close the gap on Windom's seemingly insurmountable lead, but with the pedigree that Clauson has attained over the last decade plus in the United States Auto Club, nothing was outside the realm of possibility.

Shot out of a cannon, Clauson continued to chop and slash the interval between him and leader Windom little-by-little, driving on the edge, appearing as if he was on a single-car qualifying run in the final laps.

With two laps to go, Windom jumped the skyscraper-high turn three cushion, allowing Clauson to close in right behind the tail tank of Windom's machine as the two exited turn four.

As the two sprinted down the front straightaway, Clauson got the bite off the bottom and was able to pull ahead by a car length inside of Windom at the exit of two on lap 99. Yet, Windom was able to find each and every morsel of horsepower to muscle his car back in front into turn three.

As Clauson and Windom ran Hoosier-to-Hoosier between turns three and four, the duo had to contend with the lapped car of David Byrne immediately after passing under the white flag indicating one more lap to go. The two split Byrne with Windom aiming for the topside and Clauson cutting to the low side. Clauson attempted to slide job Windom at the entrance to one by drifting up to the top line in front of Windom, but came up just shy, getting his car too far sideways and killing his momentum between turns one and two.

But, like Michael Myers in the "Halloween" movie series, Clauson would not go away, re-emerging yet again to make one last run at Windom into the final two turns. However, it was simply not enough as Windom led the final 63 laps to claim his third career USAC Silver Crown Series victory over Clauson, Kody Swanson, Bacon, Grant, Smith, Casey Shuman, Jerry Coons, Jr., Steve Buckwalter and Shane Cottle.

Like Kody Swanson's stranglehold on the dirt miles over the past few seasons, Windom appears to have taken a shine to the half-mile dirt tracks, previously taking victories at Eldora Speedway in Rossburg Ohio in 2013 and the Belleville (Kans.) High Banks in 2015. In those two races, Windom led a combined 97 of 100 laps. Friday night at Williams Grove, Windom led the final 63 laps of the contest, but putting his RPM-Fred Gormly/RPM Auto Enterprise/Maxim/J & D was no cinch as he had to hold off the hottest open-wheel driver in the nation, Bryan Clauson, in the closing laps.

"Holy cow," Windom exclaimed. "My guys came on the radio with about 10 (laps) to go and screamed at me to go. I saw that (number) 6 car down there and I knew Clauson was coming. What a hell of a race for these fans at the end!"

"I don't think it's really sunk in yet," Windom stated. "With all the history here, I can't believe we're here! This track was awesome. These guys did a great job of prepping it. It was superfast early on in practice and qualifying. It's probably my new favorite Silver Crown track. In the feature, it slicked off there. You just had to be very easy on the top because it built a big curb and it was very easy to jump over. I did it a few times and thought I was going to lose the lead there. At the end, it was just the lap cars that were running side-by-side in front of me and I didn't know what to do. I didn't want to completely come off the top and go to the bottom and have someone drive around me, so I just tried to use them as a pick, and then I saw the 6 car down there, so I had to start sliding, going as quickly as I could."

Noblesville, Indiana's Bryan Clauson hoped to become the first driver since Rodger Ward in 1959 to lead a lap at the Indianapolis 500 and win in a champ car at Williams Grove Speedway in the same season. Clauson came up just short despite a valiant effort after his car experienced mechanical problems during qualifying, finishing second while earning KSE Racing Products/Martens Machine Shop Hard Charger honors in his Klatt Enterprises/Cancer Treatment Centers of America - Jonathan Byrd's Hospitality & Restaurant Group/Beast/Ford.

"We had a tough night all the way around until the feature," Clauson reflected. "But these guys worked hard to get this car good for the feature. We were really strong, especially late. I got to him there and really wanted to run the bottom in (turns) one and two, but I kind of had a lapper pinning me down. I just decided to try and clear him and get up in front of him, but didn't get it done. We made up a lot of ground there late by just driving my butt off to try and get there; I just needed 105 (laps) or so. We dug out of a big hole there and it was a spectacular run there for sure."

Kody Swanson, of Kingsburg, California came home third in his DePalma Motorsports/Radio Hospital - Champion Oil/Maxim/Hampshire Chevy while maintaining his series point lead by 15 over Windom heading into the June 25 "St. Louis Silver Crown Showdown" at Gateway Motorsports Park in Madison, Illinois.

"What an honor it is to be here at Williams Grove and it's great to drive this DePalma family 63," Swanson said. "They're a great family to race for and a great group of people to work on it. They put a great racecar on the track for us every time. I always hate it when I can't win for them, but we gave it everything we had tonight. We struggled a little early, but as the track got a little wider and a little trickier, we were able to find something there late and battle our way up to third."

Contingency award winners at Williams Grove Speedway included C.J. Leary (ProSource Fast Qualifier), Bryan Clauson (KSE Racing Products/Martens Machine Shop Hard Charger) and David Byrne (Wilwood Brakes 13th Place Feature Finisher).

HOLBROOK CATCHES HINKLE LATE FOR TRAIL-WAY 358 SPRINT CAR WIN; RUTHERFORD, UPDEGRAFF, AND CHRONISTER OTHER FRIDAY NIGHT WINNERS

HANOVER, PA (6/10/2016) – David Holbrook sneaked under race-long leader Wyatt Hinkle in the midst of heavy lapped traffic on turn four of lap 22 and drove to his first win of the year in the 25-lap “358” sprint car feature at Trail-Way Speedway Friday night.

“I have to thank lapped cars for their help,” said the Parkton, MD driver upon exiting the Mike Parris-owned Baird Heating & Cooling/Turning Stone Resort & Casino #77 in victory lane, “I kinda lost my mind for a few laps there, and I’m glad I came around.”

Holbrook started fifth, caught Jeff Halligan for fourth on lap four, passed Austin Kirby for third on lap five, and took second from Seth Kearchner on lap 12. He chased polesitter Hinkle for the next ten laps until Hinkle got caught up behind lapped traffic with just over three laps to go.

“We learned some things tonight, and I told the guys I was going to win on turn four, and that’s where it happened,” said Holbrook, “We’ll be back again next time and try to do it again.”

The final margin of victory for Holbrook’s second career Trail-Way win was 2.91 seconds.

Hinkle settled for second, with 12th-starting Isaac Sneeringer third, hard charger Doug Hammaker (who started 16th) fourth, and Kearchner fifth. Completing the top ten were Halligan, Tyler Walton, Randy Whisler, Cody Fletcher, and Mike Bittinger (who came from the back after spinning out on the second lap).

Qualifiers for the 19 sprinters were won by Bittinger and Kearchner.

Mike Rutherford took home $1,250 in prize money after winning the 25-lap Gary Keifert Memorial for the Mason-Dixon 270cc micro sprints. Levi Peck, Nik Gower, Steven Cox, and Chad Myers crossed second through fifth.

Heats for the 31 270s were won by Chad Myers, Nicholas Skias, and Rutherford, with Toby Blumenshine winning the consolation event.

Alex Updegraff of Etters claimed his first career Trail-Way win in the 20-lap street stock feature. He was followed across the line by Jeremy Stremmel, Matt Wampler, Jim Jacobs, and Marshall McMullen.

Street stock heats were won by Aaron Beard and Updegraff.

It was another one-two finish for the Chronisters in the 15-lap limited stock feature. Jason Chronister ran to his second win of the year and 13th of his TW career, crossing .78 seconds ahead of brother Matt. Travis Brown, Charles Millender, and Sarah Redmond were third through fifth.

Julio Perez and Jason Chronister were the heat winners for the 19 limited stocks on hand.

Next Friday, June 17th, Trail-Way Speedway hosts the Precise Racing Products 358 Late Model Series along with the 600 Micro Sprints, ServiceMaster Clean Central PA Legends and the Vintage Cars. The Limited Stocks will have a championship race. This will be “Auto Racing Club of Hagerstown” night, where all card-holding club members will receive $3 off the price of admission.

USAC EASTERN STORM

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

CLAUSON WINS 77TH, SIMON FIRST IN USAC WINGLESS SPRINT MAINS AT LINCOLN;

Halligan holds off Leiby, Campbell in 358 sprint thriller

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 6/8/2016 – And the beat goes on for Bryan Clauson after the Noblesville, Indiana driver continued his fairytale season Wednesday night by picking up his fifth USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car feature victory of the season, and 11th overall USAC win, in the 2nd round of the Eastern Storm Tour at Lincoln Speedway.

Clauson ran down Chase Stockon for the lead with just six laps remaining in the caution-free affair to claim his 39th career USAC National Sprint Car victory, just one shy of the legendary Gary Bettenhausen for seventh on the all-time list.

“Chase was pretty good,” Clauson admitted. “He was moving around and I was moving around and we were just kind of staying even. It seemed like once he got to traffic, something happened and he couldn’t get into the corner quite as hard and we were able to track him down. I just kind of threw a half-hearted slider at him just to break his momentum and I don’t know if it surprised him or what, but I never saw him again after that. These races are tough. The competition is so deep in USAC right now. I just feel lucky to be able to drive a racecar as nice as this.”

Clauson lined up third behind front row starters Shane Golobic of California and Joey Biasi of Pennsylvania, but at the start, it was Biasi who took control as the field headed into turns one and two. As the two drag raced down the back straightaway, Golobic was able to mount a charge to grab the lead by a single car length at the line at the completion of lap one.

By lap four, third row starter and Fast Qualifier Chase Stockon began to charge to the front, maneuvering around the outside of Biasi for the second spot in turn one.

On lap six, Stockon had reeled in leader Golobic. The pair blasted side-by-side out of turn two, down the back straight without sparing an inch. As the two came wheel-to-wheel off of four, Stockon stole the leader’s lane, cutting across the nose of Golobic to assume the lead. One lap later, Clauson worked the middle and high grooves to take second away from Biasi with Stockon now his lone target.

Stockon took the high side of the 3/8-mile dirt oval after running low earlier while Clauson continued to search both high and low for the fastest way around. Meanwhile, Chris Windom took third from Golobic on the 12th lap.

Despite applying pressure throughout the middle portion of the 30-lapper, Stockon was able to gain a little breathing room as he distanced himself from Clauson a bit with 13 to go.

With 10 laps left, leader Stockon began to encounter lapped traffic, holding a roughly five-car-length advantage over Clauson in second.

Clauson began to creep ever closer to Stockon, foot-by-foot, inch-by-inch, reeling him in to within an arm’s length distance when Clauson (inside) and Stockon (outside) engaged in a fight that resulted in two near dead-heats at the line on laps 23 and 24, both officially credited to Stockon.

On the 25th lap, Clauson dove to the inside at the entrance of the first turn, pitching his machine sideways to slide up in front of Stockon in turn two, forcing him to slow his momentum, which allowed Clauson to pull away to a good-sized advantage down the back straightaway.

One lap later, when Stockon was still trying to settle back into a groove, Windom used a big run on Stockon heading into turn one, clearing Stockon for second as the duo exited turn two.

In the final laps, Clauson ran away from the pack, taking the victory by a half-straightaway over Windom, Stockon, Thomas Meseraull, Golobic, Ballou, Kevin Thomas, Jr., Biasi, Chad Boespflug and Jerry Coons, Jr.

Clauson has now won an astonishing seven of eight non-wing sprint car starts in the last 11 days.

Wednesday night’s second USAC feature, a 25-lap make-up feature from 2014, the lineup was determined by who finished on the lead lap during the first feature and then completely inverted. Nineteenth place finisher Carmen Perigo, the last driver on the lead lap in the first feature, would start from the pole alongside Landon Simon while first feature winner Clauson lined up 19th.

Perigo led the first two laps from the pole, but Simon would run him down to take the number one spot on lap three.

With five laps to go, it became a three-car race between Simon, Brady Bacon and Aaron Farney.

Bacon closed on Simon until he was right on Simon’s tail tank as the two headed for turn three. Bacon threw a Hail Mary to the treacherous high side in order to find a single ounce of moisture that would propel him past Simon. But it was not to be as Simon took his first career USAC-sanctioned victory and, in fact, Farney was able to make up the ground to beat Bacon to the checkered flag for the second spot.

Ephrata’s Jeff Halligan held off Chandler Leiby and Matt Campbell to score his third career Lincoln win in a thriller that saw all three leaders cross under the flagstand less than three carlengths apart.

Lady driver Brie Hershey led the first nine laps from the pole and was still leading when the Jeff Boll/Mike Miller #91 car went up in smoke entering turn one of lap ten. Halligan, who started eighth, assumed the lead for the restart and led the rest of the way despite heavy pressure from recent high school graduates Leiby and Campbell.

Outside front row starter Jordan Givler crossed fourth, followed by ninth-starting Doug Hammaker. Sixth through tenth were Ashley Cappetta, Brent Shearer, Jeff Rohrbaugh, Todd Rittenhouse, Jr., and Chris Frank.

Heats for the 29 358 sprinters were won by Campbell, Hammaker, and Rittenhouse, with Wyatt Hinkle winning the consolation.

This Saturday, June 11, it will be a special night with the LEFFLER ENERGY “DIRT CLASSIC SHOWCASE” for 410 Sprints (qualifier for 9/24; $7,000 to win). Time trials set for 7:30 PM, gates opening at 5:30 PM.

LINCOLN SPEEDWAY USAC EASTERN STORM

BRYAN CLAUSON NOW TWO FOR TWO IN EASTERN STORM, SIMON CLAIMS FIRST EVER USAC WIN ON THIRLLING NIGHT AT LINCOLN

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA (June 8, 2016) – Noblesville, IN’s Bryan Clauson claimed his second straight Eastern Storm victory in the non-stop 30 lap USAC AMSOIL National Non-Wing Sprint Car Championship event while Tipp City, OH’s Landon Simon picked up his first ever USAC victory in the 25 lap make-up feature. Jeff Halligan held off a determined Chandler Leiby to win the exciting twenty lap 358 Sprint car feature. Twenty-nine USAC sprint cars were on hand with thirty-one 358 sprints taking part in the Wednesday night show at the Lincoln Speedway.

In the first of two USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car Championship Series events, Fremont, CA’s Shane Golobic shot from the pole to take the early lead in the 30 lap A-main event, with Chase Stockon – rocketing on the high-side of the Speedway from the sixth starting position -- following right on his rear bumper. Stockon took the top spot from Golobic on the fifth circuit and pulled a five car lead.

With Stockon powering away, Bryan Clauson charged into 2nd place with his sights set on the leader. Stockon hammered away on the high side as Clauson began to close in just prior to the half way point. Chris Windom made his intentions known as he battled into the third position.

While at one time in Clauson’s sights, Stockon charged forward to an almost 10 car lead while Clauson fought to hold off third place runner, Chris Windom at the halfway point.

Stockon hit lapped traffic on the 18th circuit running in the middle of corners one and two, while Clauson – holding off a hard charging Windom – raced around the high side of the Speedway.

Clauson slid passed Stockon with five-laps remaining quickly pulling a strong lead and claiming his second straight Eastern Storm Victory in a caution free 30 lap event. Clauson earned $6,000 for the victory. Windom would pull by Stockon to claim second position, with Thomas Meseraull and Shane Golobic rounding out the top five finishers.

In the make-up USAC A-main, Landon Simon charged, from the front row, into the lead on the initial start while CJ Leary raced around just inches from the outside guardrail – powering from the sixth starting spot in 2nd position by the third circuit.

The first caution of the evening fell on the ninth lap with an incident that included earlier winner Bryan Clauson and retiring the cars of Thomas Meseraull, Tony DiMattia and Shane Cottle.

Simon launched away on the restart followed quickly by Brady Bacon and Aaron Farney. Switching from running the far top side to the bottom, Bacon closed on Simon running some of his fastest laps of the evening. Inch-by-inch Bacon closed on Simon and was within two car lengths with five laps to go, while Aaron Farney stayed right on their tail.

Bacon moved to the outside coming to the checkered flag but couldn’t make it all the way. Landon Simon would claim his first USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car Championship win. Simon earned $3,000 for the win. Brady Bacon would settle for second, Aaron Farney finished third, Kyle Moody was fourth and CJ Leary came home in fifth.

Ephrata, PA’s Jeff Halligan held off a hard charging Chandler Leiby to pick up the win in the 20 Lap 358 Sprint Car event and claim the $1,000 top prize. Brie Hersey jumped to the early lead before emitting a puff of smoke just prior to the halfway point sidelining the No. 91 machine. Halligan inherited the lead racing hard around the top side with Leiby closing on the bottom. The only other yellow flag flew on the eleventh circuit but that didn’t slow Halligan’s efforts. He ran away at the re-start and claiming his 3rd career Lincoln Speedway victory and his first of the season.

Leiby settled for second place, Matt Campbell finished in third, Jordan Givler in the fourth position and Doug Hammaker completed the top five.

USAC QUALIFYING RESULTS: 1. Chase Stockon, 32, - 15.730; 2. C.J. Leary, 17GP, - 15.891; 3. Chad Boespflug, 98E, - 16.051; 4. Chris Windom, 5, - 16.212; 5. Bryan Clauson, 63, - 16.290; 6.

TAYLOR PATIENTLY WAITING

Don Reem and Ryan Taylor Play The Waiting Game; Ensures They Are Still Going To Run

PA Sprint Car News | Justin Snyder

Perkasie, PA | June 8, 2016

Come October as races begin winding down and the cars are pushed into trailers for the final time, Central Pennsylvania sprint car fans are already churning the rumor mill and impatiently awaiting the start of the new season.

There are new paint schemes to see and driver changes aplenty. With every schedule announcement of a local track and every trade show debut, fans just can’t get enough! Sprint Car racing in Central Pennsylvania truly is a year long ordeal.

So when Ryan Taylor announced in mid January that he had teamed up with Don Reem, of Don’s Performance Corner Inc, to field a new 410 Sprint Car ride for Friday night shows at Williams Grove Speedway, fans were excited at the thought of another quality ride taking to the track weekly.

In a time when the cost of racing is at an all time high and weekly car counts often dominate headlines as much as the racing on the track, it was great news to fans and drivers alike to hear that an outsider was venturing into the Sprint Car world as an owner.

Reem, who comes from a drag racing background, was giving up that passion to become a J &J Chassis dealer. He also owns his own engine shop and was looking to create his own power-plant package for Sprint Cars. With Taylor already running J&J Chassis and looking to add to his racing schedule, it seemed like a match made in racing heaven.

However, while Taylor has been a regular at Port Royal Speedway in his family owned No.20 on Saturday nights, he has not been seen in the much talked about Friday night ride yet this season.

And the fans have started to ask questions.

Is the owner out of money already? Is he packing it up before ever getting started? Will this deal every come together? Taylor has heard it all.

“I appreciate the support and I understand the excitement of the fans,” said Taylor. “Trust me, I would love to be racing more and be honing my skills behind his Sprint Car.”

“But the truth is that it takes a lot of time and money to put these types of deals together and he’s just making sure to get things right before we hit the track,” added Taylor.

The car is sitting ready to be raced and Reem is putting together the final touches on the motor program. He also has been gutting and refurbishing a trailer that was purchased from the family of the late Kramer Williamson to be ready to head to the track.

While it has been a slow process, Taylor is staying upbeat and is ready whenever the final product is ready to hit the track.

“As of right now I’m just staying in touch with Don and trying to keep up with where things are at,” said Taylor. “He’s two hour away from me, so I can’t be at the shop as much as I’d like. He made a lot of progress in a small time and I’m just patiently waiting for the final product to be complete.”

When he’s not racing, Taylor letters Sprint Cars, signs and banners as owner of Ryan Taylor Graphics. Working for himself, along with driving a family owned machine on a regular basis, he can appreciate the time and effort it takes to get things off the ground from nothing.

“When we first talked I told him not to be in any rush to get things together as there are plenty of races in PA to race at,” said Taylor, a 6-time winner on the 410 circuit. “He wants things to look nice and be done right and I believe that’s a good way to go about it when you are starting new. It’s certainly been a process, but I hope we are out there sooner than later.”

Until then, Taylor will continue to pilot his Accelerated Surface Finishing, Evans Heat Treating machine at Port Royal. He had planned to run for points there throughout the season, but due to a lack of funding the team may pick and choose going forward where they run.

He has been really impressed with the improvements made at Susquehanna Speedway and enjoys racing on their surface. He also likes the Yellow Breeches 500 races being offered at Williams Grove Speedway, which pays $500 to start and is equivalent to that of Knoxville Raceway and is the highest of its kind in the central PA area.

“I think we are going to have to take a look and reevaluate where we are at on a weekly basis,” said Taylor. “We are really only budgeted for Port Royal every week, but if we can hit some of these other shows instead and make a little more money; it only makes sense from a business standpoint.”

The biggest problem they face is that their motor program does not stand up well against some of the other teams in the pits weekly. Because of that, they are attempting to make it through the season on one motor

“Motor builders tell you what you can do limit wise on these things and we are trying to make it last all year,” said Taylor. “Rider Racing Engines gives us great stuff, but we really are just hanging on and hoping for the best.”

As a result, he’ll continue to run as much as possible and hope for the best.

“I don’t do this for a living and I’m certainly not making any money off racing, “said Taylor. “I love racing Sprint Cars and being out there on the track. So I’m just going to stay optimistic and everything will come together in the end.”

THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES

NAPA AUTO PARTS THUNDER ON THE RACING SERIES OPENS 27TH SEASON AT GRANDVIEW. . . .

BRYAN CLAUSON TOPS USAC EASTERN STORM AS RICK LAUBACH WIN 30 LAP NASCAR 358 MODIFIED FEATURE TUESDAY NIGHT

BECHTELSVILLE, PA JUNE 7, 2016 . . . . . . Bryan Clauson of Noblesville, IN thrilled a big crowd winning the forty lap Jesse Hockett Classic AMSOIL USAC non-wing sprint car feature Tuesday night at the Grandview Speedway. Clauson won the feature that saw as many as five cars challenging for the win. At one point of the race, the leaders were four wide charging off of turn four. Clauson earned $6,000 for the win. In the thirty lap modified feature, Rick Laubach from Quakertown, PA led the entire distance after shaking off some challenges from Keith Hoffman and later in the race, Tim Buckwalter to earn the $3,000 first place prize. This event marked the 119th Thunder on the Hill Racing Series event presented by Pioneer Pole Buildings.

A field of thirty USAC non-wing sprint cars took part in the program with Bryan Clauson setting fast time, stopping the clock at 13.664. Four USAC heats races were presented with victories going to Chad Boespflug, Dave Darland, Chris Windom and Robert Ballou as Bryan Clauson won the “B” event.

Thirty-one modifieds took part in three qualifying events with victories going, Craig VonDohren, Tim Buckwalter and Ray Swinehart as John Willman won the modified consolation.

At the drop of the green in the 40 lap Jesse Hockett Classic, you could tell this was going to be a good one. Tony DiMattia set the early lead with Kevin Thomas and Jarett Andretti in the chase. Thomas took the lead on lap eight with Andretti now in second. The battle heated up on lap twelve as Andretti challenged Thomas for the lead. After a few slide jobs, Andretti moved into the lead. For at least six laps, Andretti and Thomas traded the lead with each corner. By lap seventeen, Thomas was back on top but just two laps later, Andretti was again the race leader.

With the cross flags showing on lap twenty, Andretti, Thomas, Chris Windom, Bryan Clauson and Robert Ballou were the top five and all in contention for the lead. On lap twenty-four, Clauson moved into the lead but Andretti refused to settle for second as he went back knocking on the door in search of the lead.

Kevin Thomas moved into second on lap twenty-eight and set his sights on the leading Clauson. Thomas Meseraulla advanced to fourth and Robert Ballou rounded out the top five. Clauson quickly established a solid lead but Kevin Thomas refused to settle for second and with each remaining lap, tried to reel in Clauson. The racing deep in the pack offered plenty of passing but back at the front of the pack, Chris Windom was on a charge now racing in third.

For the final laps, Clauson ran a flawless race to earn the victory followed by Kevin Thomas, Chris Windom and Thomas Meseraull.

The $3,000 to win 358 NASCAR Modified feature saw Rick Laubach lead the entire thirty lap distance. Early in the race Keith Hoffman put the pressure on followed by Tim Buckwalter. On lap seven, the caution was displayed for Hoffman who spun in turn two. This gave Buckwalter a shot to challenge Laubach but Buckwalter to settle into second to hold off a charging Ryan Godown.

At the halfway point of the race, Laubach, Buckwalter, Godown, Craig VonDohren and Brett Kressley made up the top five.

On lap twenty-two, Buckwalter started to trim down the big lead held by Laubach. Each lap, Buckwalter inched closer but a lapped car between Laubach and Buckwalter definitely played to the advantage of Laubach.

With the checker flag waiving, Laubach took the victory over Tim Buckwalter, Ryan Godown, Craig VonDohren and Brett Kressley.

40 Lap Jesse Hockett Classic USAC Feature Finish: Bryan Clauson, Kevin Thomas, Jr., Chris Windom, Thomas Meseraull, Jarett Andretti, Robert Ballou, Max McGhee, Brady Bacon, Tony DiMattia, Dave Darland, Shane Golobic, Chad Boespflug, C.J.

NEXT THUNDER EVENT:

Grandview Speedway

PA 410 Sprint Speed Week & 358 Modifieds*

 

 

SHOULD SUSQUEHANNA BE INCLUDED? DRIVERS AND FANS SOUND OFF

PA Sprint Car News | Justin Snyder

York Haven, PA | June 7, 2016

Central Pennsylvania racing is full of tradition. Some of the greatest drivers to ever strap into a 410 Sprint Car have run at the various speedways spread throughout the Keystone state.

Whether it’s taking on the World of Outlaws or Tony Stewart’s All Star Circuit of Champions or a regular point’s show at any of the local tracks, you can bet that the grandstands will be packed by loyal fans cheering on the drivers.

One of the biggest traditions and events that fans look forward to yearly is Pennsylvania Speedweek.
This year is the 25th Anniversary of the event and it features 9 races spread across 10 days at 7 different tracks from June, 24- July 3, 2016.
Williams Grove Speedway and Port Royal Speedway both will have 2 speedweek shows with single dates slotted for Lincoln Speedway, Path Valley, Grandview, Hagerstown and Selinsgrove.

With increased sponsorship and support, this year’s spectacle will offer the largest point fund in series history of $25,000, with $10,000 of that going to the series champion. A total of $250,000.00 will be given out in prize money throughout the 10 days.

However, with all the excitement building for the anniversary year event, one track is absent from the schedule and dominating headlines with a recent announcement.
Susquehanna Speedway, one of the pioneer tracks from the inaugural 1991 PA Speedweek series won by Steve Smith, was not included on the 2016 schedule.

As a result of sponsor commitments with BAPS and being left out, they decided to schedule a two-division 410 and 305 Sprint Car event June 23, that fans have dubbed the unofficial PA Speedweek opener due to it taking place the one day before the official kickoff.

Once considered a staple on the schedule, Susquehanna has not been a part of PA Speedweek since it last hosted an event in 2005.
However with new ownership by Scott Gobrecht and a complete new promotion team making huge improvements to the facility, many expected them to be a shoe-in for this year’s event.
“It’s awesome to see a track that’s putting money back into the speedway and you can see that it’s paying off by not only the car counts, but the amount of fans that are in the stands,” said Ryan Taylor, 410 sprint car driver of the No.20 Accelerated Surface Finishing, Evans Heat Treating. “I think it be awesome if they had a Speedweek date.”

Duane Marriot, a fan who has been visiting the track since the 80’s, agreed with Taylor and believes that the fans and drivers are missing out with the exclusion.
“Some things never change and Susquehanna is the raciest track in Pennsylvania in my opinion,” exclaimed Marriot. “The history of the place alone should reserve a Speedweek spot in itself.”

If it’s history that we are talking about, you can look no farther than local racing legend and recent Sprint Car Hall of Fame inductee Don Kreitz Jr. for support.
Kreitz, who retired from competition last year after dealing with concussion-like symptoms, has been one of the most successful drivers in the history of Susquehanna Speedway.

He appreciates the hard work the track team has put in and would like to see them once again be rewarded as part of Speedweek in an official status.
“With the improvements they made there, I think they deserve a spot in Speedweek,” said Kreitz, who scored PA Speedweek victories at Susquehanna Speedway in 1992, 1998 and 2001. “Plus it’s not a far tow for us.”

Travelling distance is important as he is now a car owner for fellow Central PA racing legend, Lance Dewease.

Dewease, who picked up Speedweek wins at the track in 1994 and 1997 and is among the most successful drivers in PA Speedweek history with 19 career wins and 3 Speedweek championships, agrees with his car owner. “They have been a part of Central PA sprint car racing for 30 plus years and with what the new owners have done with the place, it just makes sense. They should be able to have a Speedweek show.”

When fans heard of the announcement, many wondered why with Williams Grove and Port Royal getting two dates, that one of those extra nights could not have gone to accommodate Susquehanna.

“The fact that there are tracks with two races during that week means there is definitely a day for them,” said Karen Lavigna, a local fan. “Tracks only need one day. Hopefully this will happen and we’ll be there (in support).”

Brent Marks, driver of the M&M Painting & Construction, BAPS Auto Paint & Supply, No.19M, would also like to see Susquehanna included in Speedweek festivities and less tracks with multiple dates.

As a young driver gaining experience, he has opened up his schedule to include many different tracks throughout the country in the past few years. As a result, he believes it would only add to the challenge of competing in the series and make it more enjoyable for the fans and drivers.

“First off, I’m not a fan of the tracks getting multiple races,” said Marks, who will be searching for his first PA Speedweek victory in 2016. “I’d like to race a different track every night. I think it would be more fun and more challenging.”

“Even if it was on the Monday that we have off, the car count and the fan support is there for this race track. It’s a win-win for everyone,” Marks added.

With owner, driver and fan support, you can bet that Susquehanna Speedway will be in discussions for future Speedweek events at the track. Until then, you can support the track by attending the Thursday Night Thunder event June 23.

Mix the top open-wheel drivers in the country, the unpredictability of Grandview Speedway, with a $6,000 winner’s share and you have a battle like no other – a countless number of drivers could take home the victory.

Defending race winner, Chase Stockon of Fort Branch, Indiana currently sits third in the series points standings. The 28-year-old competitor has proven he knows the quick way around Grandview’s 1/3-mile – capturing the 2014 edition of the Hockett Classic besting a hard charging Jon Stanbrough.

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY
4 June 2016
By Michael Batz

CRASH ENDS SMITH’S WINNING STREAK, KISSINGER SOARS TO URC SPRINT CAR WIN;
STROUP SCORES SECOND RAIN-SHORTENED PRO STOCK 20 CHAMPIONSHIP;
RESSLER WINS IN 305 SPRINT CARS, DUSTIN SNOOK ROADRUNNERS

TWO-RACE WEEKEND COMING UP AT SELINSGROVE:
FRIDAY, JUNE 10: 410 Sprints & Pro Stocks
SUNDAY, JUNE 12: Late Model Speedweek & Limited Late Models

SELINSGROVE, Pa. -- Bad luck struck Mark Smith in a big way just past halfway of Saturday night's 25-lap 360 Sprint car feature at Selinsgrove Speedway. It was the fourth time in 2016 that the United Racing Club joined the Newville Family of Companies 360 Sprint cars at the Speedway.

Smith took the race lead on the start of the sprint car feature from the front row and led until lap 16 when his car made contact with a lapped car and then the wall before flipping on the fronstretch into turn one. When Smith's bad luck struck it quickly spread through the top three as second place Curt Michael and third place Jason Shultz were caught up in the accident as well. All drivers walked away from the scary incident unharmed.

Robbie Stillwaggon inherited the race lead sharing the front row for the restart with TJ Stutts. Stillwaggon and Stutts traded the race lead numerous times over the next couple of laps before Stutts took over. Lap 20 marked the second time the field would regroup, this time for a Jim Schuster yellow flag.

Ryan Kissinger was the fastest car on the track before the big wreck and remained the fastest car throughout the next couple of laps. Stutts showed the way after the yellow while Stillwaggon gave way to Kissinger in the race for second. Kissinger then began to reel in Stutts and on lap 22 completed the pass for the top spot from his seventh starting position.

Kissinger led the rest of the way ahead of Stutts and Stillwaggon. Kissinger's third career Selinsgrove feature win came at the wheel of a Ford-powered machine sponsored by Sunbury Motors and DMY Performance. Eric Tomecek and Larry Kelleher rounded out the top five finishers. Davie Franek was sixth followed by Derek Locke, Adam Carberry, Cody Keller, and Ed Aikin. Heat races for the 22 car field were won by Davie Franek, Curt Michael, and Mark Smith.

The IMCA PASS 305 Sprint Series invaded Selinsgrove Speedway on Saturday night. It looked like point leader Scott Lutz had everything under control when suddenly Tyler Reeser charged into the top spot. Reeser used the outside line early in the 20-lap event and lost a bunch of ground from his fourth starting spot while Lutz drove to a comfortable advantage.

Reeser quickly adjusted and was able to run down Lutz by lap 14 and make the pass for the race lead by lap 16. Reeser crossed the line in 6:50.613 for a new track record. Zach Newlin snuck by Lutz at the end for second. Lutz, John Martin, and Ken Duke rounded out the top five finishers. Cale Reigle, Kyle Ganoe, Dave Grube, Erin Statler, and Geoff Gill were the top ten finishers in the 305 Sprint Car feature event. Cale Reigle and Tyler Reeser were heat race winners.

The A&A Auto Stores Pro Stocks filled the pit area for their annual Pro Stock 20 Saturday night. The defending winner AJ Stroup has not made a start this year at the speedway but came out in style and showed the way early in the event.

Adam Campbell was begging to mount a charge at the top spot when rain his the speedway. Although Stroup was happy to see the rain on lap 15 that ended up finishing the Pro Stock 20 early, he admitted it would have been a good finish in victory lane. While Stroup and Campbell pulled away the field battled fiercely behind them for every spot. Brad Mitch held on for third with Brandon Moser and Jake Buck rounding out the top five finishers.

Andrew Shoop, AJ Hoffman, John Troxell, Curtis Lawton, and Jim Payne rounded out the top ten finishers in the 2016 Pro Stock 20. With his win, Stroup joins Kyle Bachman, Aj Hoffman, Jason Smith, and Gary Beward as repeat winners of the event. Matt Hornberger, Brandon Moser, and Brad Mitch were the heat race winners for a stellar 24 car field.

A make-up Roadrunner feature was run before the rain came. Dustin Snook held off Keith Bissinger for multiple laps for the victory. In victory lane Snook pulled his steering wheel off to come out of the car and the steering column came with it! Brian Johnson and Smith Cope
rounded out the field for the feature event.

A makeup date for the regularly scheduled 12-lap Roadrunner feature will be announced.

Selinsgrove Speedway will host a unique two-race weekend coming up June 10-12. The 410 sprint cars return for a special “Friday Night Lights” show at 8 p.m. Friday, June 10. The 25-lap main event will pay $3,500 to win. The pro stocks will join the 410 sprint cars on the first Friday night show at the track in 10 years.

The speedway will swing back into action at 7 p.m. Sunday, June 12, with the Appalachian Mountain Late Model Speedweek Finale plus limited late models. The 40-lap super late model main event will pay $4,000 to win. Track gates will open at 5 p.m.

BRANDON RAHMER SCORES SECOND CAREER WIN IN LINCOLN 410 SPRINT CAR FEATURE;

Wyatt Hinkle claims first career Lincoln win in 358 sprints;

Charles Potts wins first Lincoln feature in 358 late models

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 6/4/2016 –Brandon Rahmer turned around a tough start to the 2016 season by holding off a stellar field of sprint cars to claim his second career win in the 25-lap 410 sprint car feature at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

“This year’s kinda been rollin’ off a little tough, but I’ve been drawing bad and haven’t really been racing like myself,” said Rahmer after matching his brother with his first win of the season and becoming the ninth different winner in 11 races in the Pigeon Hills this year, “I was really good in the heat and finally put a whole night together…and I’m glad that I’m finally standing here.”

Handicapping placed Rahmer on the pole for the start, and despite challenges from two top-notch drivers, led every lap. Cory Haas started third and chased Rahmer for the first 16 laps.

“In the beginning there with Cory, I was a little worried because it was really dirty up top. I slid myself going into one because I knew he was going to come up and slide me, said Rahmer, “I can trust him when I’m racing beside him, but he didn’t clear me and I was able wiggle through there. I’m the one standing here. Just the way it happened.”

While Rahmer enjoying a 1.13-second lead, seventh-starting and Lincoln points leader Alan Krimes finally caught Haas for second on lap 17.

Krimes crossed 1.43 seconds behind the winner, with Haas, Brent Marks coming from ninth to finish fourth, and Freddie Rahmer fifth. Sixth through tenth were Danny Dietrich, Robbie Kendall, Austin Hogue, Brian Montieth, and Chase Dietz.

“I tried not to think about the drivers behind me or I’d get myself really worked up,” said Rahmer of Haas and the other big guns running in the top ten, “There’s some really good competition here, and my brother had a good night, too. Sometimes you come here and you run up front, and the next few weeks you might be rolling around the back, but you’re still with good cars. It’s difficult here.”

Heats for the 30 410 sprinters were won by Krimes, Hogue, and Billy Dietrich, who ended up scratching from the feature.

East Berlin’s Wyatt Hinkle claimed his first career Lincoln win in the 20-lap 358 sprint car feature.

Hinkle started on the outside of the front row and won the drag race to turn one over polesitter Jack Eldreth. From there, he led every lap, despite heavy pressure from both Chandler Leiby and Doug Hammaker over the final laps. In fact, the three drivers were nearly three-wide in turns three and four of the final lap when the caution unfurled for Ryan Higgins, who was backwards in turn four.

On the final restart, Hinkle went low to hold off Leiby, allowing Hammaker to drive around the outside to take second place. The three leaders were under a blanket as the crossed under the checkered flag.

Fourth and fifth behind Hinkle, Hammaker, and Leiby were Adrian Shaffer and Eldreth.

Heats for the 27 358 sprinters were won by Troy Wagaman, Jr., Dwight Leppo, and Kyle Denmyer, with Jordon Givler winning the consolation.

Wagaman crashed into the outside wall after contact with Hammaker while running third on turn two of lap 17, and was done for the night.

Charles Potts led every lap from the pole in scoring his first career Lincoln win in the 20-lap 358 Precise Racing Series 358 late model feature.

He crossed 2.36 seconds in front of Jake Jones, with Randy Christine, Jr., Bobby Beard, and Shaun Jones completing the top five.

Heats for the 17 358 Late Models were won by Brad Shank and Sam Gallagher.

This Wednesday, June 8, the Amsoil USAC Sprints will be at Lincoln Speedway for a 30 lap feature and a make-up 25-lap feature from 2014. The 358 Sprints will round out the evening’s action, which gets underway at 7 PM with time trials. Gates open at 5 PM.

Jonestown Jet Zearfoss Soars To Williams Grove Sprints Win, Lands In Victory Lane!

Greg Hodnett walks off with URC Sprints

6/3/16

Mechanicsburg – “The Jonestown Jet,” Brock Zearfoss wired the field for the first 410-sprint car victory of his career at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, walking away with $3,600 for his efforts.

In the 25-lap URC Sprint main, Greg Hodnett scored the $2,000 victory for the 360 c.i. powered division in the circuit’s first appearance of the season at the oval.

Zearfoss started third in the 25-lap 410 sprint main and zig-zagged into the lead as the field rushed through the first and second corners upon the initial green flag.

He swerved between and around both Nicole Bower and Troy Fraker to have the point as he raced down the backchute on his way to the victory in what would be a non-stop feature event.

With a straightaway lead by the fifth circuit over Austin Hogue, Zearfoss soon entered the rear of the field and by lap 10, he had built up a three second advantage with eighth starter Doug Esh up to third.

Esh drove into second late in the event but failed to close on Zearfoss who again was zig-zagging for the win, this time in and out of and through traffic to preserve his lead.

At the finish, Zearfoss was 4.566 seconds ahead of Esh with Hogue third followed by Cory Haas and 19th starter Greg Hodnett who took fifth from Danny Dietrich with five laps to go.

Sixth through 10th went to Dietrich, Ryan Smith, Freddie Rahmer, Brian Montieth and Rick Lafferty.

Heats went to Nicole Bower and Rahmer.

“It’s been way too long since I got to talk out here,” said Zearfoss from victory lane.

“I knew I definitely had a chance to win tonight. I just needed to get where we needed to be right away,” he said.

“I just went for the open racetrack.”

The Jonestown driver also owns two career 358-sprint victories at Williams Grove.

Hodnet started sixth in the URC Sprint main and watched as second starter Mark Smith took the lead over Davie Franek on the first lap.

The races first caution flag unfurled on the second tour with Hodnett up to third and he motored by Franek for second on the restart before another yellow bunched the field with three away.

The ensuing restart saw Hodnett power into the lead over Smith for a control he would not relinquish.

A final caution flag on the seventh tour again bunched the field and for a bit after the restart Smith kept Hodnett close and indeed closed in on him while riding on the high cushion but after Hodnett moved up to the cushion as well in the first and second corner, he was able to pull away from his pursuer.

Hodnett entered lapped traffic on the 17th tour but he was not to be denied what was the 62nd sprint car win of his career at Williams Grove.

He took the victory by 5.959 seconds over Smith.

Curt Michael was third followed by Robbie Stillwaggon and Josh Weller.

Sixth through 10th went to Franek, Derek Locke, Brian Carber, Eric Tomecek and Jason Shultz.

Heats went to Hodnett, Stillwaggon and Michael.

June 3, 2016 Feature Finishes:

410 sprints, 25 laps: 1. Brock Zearfoss, 2. Doug Esh, 3. Austin Hogue, 4. Cory Haas, 5. Greg Hodnett, 6. Danny Dietrich, 7. Ryan Smith, 8. Freddie Rahmer, 9. Brian Montieth, 10. Rick Lafferty, 11.

NOUSE SIGNS 358 SUMMER SERIES BIGGER & BETTER IN 2016

PA Sprint Car News | Mike Baker

Carlisle, PA | June 2, 2016


Kevin Nouse is bringing back his highly anticipated 358 sprint car point series for a second year, and with three months of racing already in the books, this season is about to heat up.

The idea behind the series was to not only benefit the weekly racer, but also the part time operations. "Williams Grove and Lincoln came up with the concept and approached me about it," said Nouse. It was a series that intrigued drivers, fans, and sponsors. Each race brought high anticipation and fierce competition. Doug Hammaker reigned supreme and went on to capture the inaugural championship.

"The competition in our series is incredible due to our handicapping procedures for our features. There is no penalty box for any of our events. That means a guy who has never raced at one of the tracks can come run our series race without being penalized, as long as they have raced in at least one 358 Sprint event this season" Nouse explained.

It's a fair, yet extremely challenging series. "It is by far the most fair way to do it, which makes the passing and competition great."
Drivers like Deitz, Hammaker, Shaffer, and Nouse have become household names due to the exposure the high competition brings. "I do it to bring some more attention to the 358 sprint car division and it's drivers. I also try to give the 358 drivers, who are mostly blue collar racers, some extra money in their pockets."

This is a series that gives back to the racer, whether it be money, parts, or gift certificates. This year it is back, and even bigger, with Freedom Powersports coming on as an official sponsor of the five race series which will now be known as "Nouse Signs & Graphics 358 Sprint Summer Series - Presented By Freedom Powersports." Based out of Everett, Pennsylvania, Freedom offers motorcycles, ATVs and side-by-sides at the best prices. They also have over 700 units in stock from the top leading brands like Polaris, Honda, Kawasaki, and Victory.

With Freedom coming on board as the presenting sponsor, the point fund has been boosted to $5000. An extra $2000 from last year's series will now be implemented which will increase the overall payout to the top 20 drivers in final points, doubling from only 10 last season.

The series kicks off June 17th at Williams Grove Speedway.

THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES

NAPA AUTO PARTS THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES CONTINUES. . . . . . .

USAC NON WING SPRINTS EASTERN STORM KICKS OFF AT GRANDVIEW TUESDAY, 7, LINCOLN SPEEDWAY WEDNESDAY, JUNE 8

Must See Event Brings USAC Amsoil National Sprint Car Series to the East Coast

BECHTELSVILLE, PA (June 2, 2016) – Three-wide racing action all the time, thrilling slide jobs plus rim-riding the guardrail and plenty of wheelie action is just a normal show for the USAC non-wing sprint cars and they will open the Eastern Storm at Grandview Speedway on Tuesday night, June 7. The leanest and meanest racers from USAC’s AMSOIL National Sprint Car Series – the nation’s largest group of non-wing open-wheel racers – make their annual stop on the east coast for the 2016 version of Eastern Storm, a five-race series touring through Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

Action kicks off on Tuesday, June 7 at Bechtelsville, PA’s Grandview Speedway as part of NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series. The Annual Jesse Hockett Classic includes a 40-lap, $6,000 to win USAC Wingless Sprint Car event along with the power NASCAR 358 Modifieds – a Grandview Speedway mainstay. Hockett, a two time USAC feature winner at Grandview, lost his life in a garage accident in 2010. Hockett was recognized as one of the top competitors in USAC and as a driver, he did not reach his full potential at the time of his death. Non wing or racing a sprint car with a wing, Jesse Hockett was a success. His style on the track and friendly smile will long be remembered. The Thunder on the Hill Racing Series salutes this legend to our sport.

The NASCAR 358 Modifieds will compete in a series of qualifying events leading up to a $3,000 to win 30 lap feature event.

Defending Jesse Hockett Classic winner, Chase Stockon of Fort Branch, Indiana currently sits third in the series points standings and has finished in the top-10 in eight of the twelve events completed. The 28-year-old driver has proven he knows the quick way around the Bechtelsville, PA 1/3-mile dirt oval – capturing the 2014 edition of the Jesse Hockett Classic besting a hard charging Jon Stanbrough and two rain delays.

The Eastern Storm Tour continues into Abbottstown, PA’s Lincoln Speedway on Wednesday, June 8 with a double header of USAC Wingless action. A full show is on the agenda, along with a make-up event from 2014. $6,000 is up for grabs in the first 30-lap feature event, while the second feature – with a full field invert – will offer an additional $3,000. The show also includes the Lincoln Speedway 358 Winged Sprint Cars in a full points event paying $1,000 to win the 20 lap feature.

In 2014, Dave Darland earned the fast qualifier award at Lincoln with a time of 15.174 – a new track record. An ultra-fast racing surface led to a lot of wheel standing down the Lincoln Speedway straight-a-ways with the top-9 cars besting the previous track record. Seven-time USAC National Champion, Levi Jones was the winner both times the Eastern Storm invaded the Lincoln Speedway in 2010 and 2011.

Current series points leader, Brady Bacon of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma leads the east coast charge with a streak of top-5 finishes that dates back six races. Bacon, the 2015 Eastern Storm series champion, holds a 17-point lead over California native Thomas Meseraull. ‘T-Mez’ claimed his first two career USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car feature victories in consecutive events near the end of the 2015 season and holds one win to date.

Nine different drivers hold wins in 2016 and with the variety of tracks that Eastern Storm brings anything is bound to happen.

General Admission ticket pricing for Tuesday, June 7 at Grandview Speedway are $30 for Adults, Children 6-11 are $10 and Kids 5 & under are FREE! Pit Admission pricing is $35.

Tickets for Wednesday, June 8 at Lincoln Speedway are $25 for Adults, Students 12-17 are $20, Children 6-11 are $10 and Kids 5 & Under are FREE! Pit Admission is $30.

Local Kids Race to Finish Williams Grove’s Math Fact Challenge

More than 400 area students accept the challenge for great prizes and School’s Out Night fun!

For the second year in a row, Williams Grove has sponsored the Math Fact Challenge. Elementary school children from three local schools (South Mountain Elementary, Monroe Elementary, and Newville Elementary) were challenged to race their way to excelling in math. By completing ten minutes of math problems, over ten days, they would receive two general admission tickets for their parents for School’s Out Night on June 17th, 3-D fireworks glasses, a mood changing pencil, and entry into a raffle for a free Kindle Fire (one given out at each school).

The response in 2016 has been incredible. Across the three schools, more than 400 students stepped up to the plate to race their way to improving their math skills, which more than doubles the response in the first season of the challenge. South Mountain Elementary principal Jeff Clifton was very excited about Williams Grove’s efforts to reach out to their students.

"When Kevin approached me about having SME participate in the Math Facts Challenge, I was thrilled! We are offered many chances to participate in Reading incentives each year, but this is the first Math incentive we have been offered. The kids were enthusiastic about logging their practice in order to earn a ticket to the races. The Kid's Night was a great night last year, and I saw many of our kids there having fun."

Even local drivers jumped in to get involved, visiting the local elementary schools with their cars to tell the kids a little more about racing in this area, and challenging their knowledge of numbers with talk about speeds and race laps. Of course, getting a photo in the racecar was the most popular attraction.

Williams Grove always offers free admission for kids 12 and under, so the free tickets for School’s Out Night are intended for parents to bring their kids out to the races with little cost to them. With free admission and tons of fun activities for the kids, June 17th is sure to be a great night to celebrate students and their accomplishments over the past year.

Williams Grove Speedway encourages all families to bring their kids out to celebrate another great year and kick off summer with a bang. Some of the activities will include bike and big wheel races, a driver autograph session, games, prizes, face painting, a bounce house and a grand fireworks display. Gates will open at 6:00 p.m. with racing kicking off at 8:00.

Congratulations to all of those students that completed the Math Fact Challenge this year

Hodnett Makes Late Race Restart Pass To Win Port Royal Weikert Series Second Round

Mark Smith takes $3,000 URC victory

5/29/16

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Greg Hodnett used a late race restart to make a two-car pass and sweep into the lead and win worth $10,000 in Sunday night’s second round of the 2016 Port Royal Speedway Bob Weikert Memorial Sprint Car Series.

The victory was the second for Hodnett at the speedplant in 24 hours after he took round on worth $5,000 on Saturday night to start the three-day show that ends on Memorial Day evening.

In the 25-lap URC sprint main, Sunbury’s Mark Smith powered to the victory worth $3,000.

Lucas Wolfe led the first lap of the 35-lap 410-sprint car main from the pole but couldn’t hold off second starter Steve Buckwalter who took command on the second tour as David Gravel, Lance Dewease and Hodnett raced in the top five.

Hodnett never advanced until the 12th lap when he worked by Dewease for fourth. He then overtook Gravel for third three laps later.

And just as Hodnett took over third, Wolfe pulled off an inside third turn pass in traffic to take over the helm of the event from Buckwalter.

Dewease saw a burst of speed develop at the halfway point of the 35-lapper as he again got in front of Hodnett, this time for third but Hodnett returned the favor with 15 laps to go to again claim the spot.

Hodnett was doing his best to stay ahead of Dewease as the latter worked the inside with Hodnett on top.

Meanwhile, leader Wolfe was working hectic traffic that allowed the top four cars to gather within striking distance of one another as the pace became dizzying and the leaders darted inside and out to clear the backmarkers.

Dewease appeared to be surging late in the event when he suddenly came up lame, dropping off of the pace and stopping on the backstretch, setting up a restart after the lone event caution period on lap 27.

Not within reach of the lead before the yellow, the restart played into Hodnett’s hands as he ducked under Buckwalter for second as the field blasted into the first corner.

Hodnett then raced with Buckwalter through turn two before pulling ahead on the backstretch only to close up on Wolfe for the lead.

The Memphis native then darted underneath Wolfe as the pair set their cars into the third turn to drive up out of the fourth corner with a command he wouldn’t relinquish after making a two-car pass during the lap to seal the deal.

Hodnett’s margin of victory was 1.420 seconds ahead of a surging Danny Dietrich who had started 12th.

Dietrich was up to fifth on the restart and drove by Gravel, Buckwalter and Wolfe during the closing circuits to finish a promising second.

Third went to Wolfe with Gravel taking fourth and 20th starter Brent Marks blasting home in fifth.

Marks earned the Hard Charger Award and a guaranteed starting spot in Monday’s finale.

Sixth through 10th went to Dale Blaney, Ryan Smith, Buckwalter, Doug Esh and Stevie Smith.

Heats for the 34-car field went to Hodnett, Gravel, Dewease and Dylan Cisney with Ryan Smith taking the consolation race.

Greg Hodnett leads the Weikert Memorial series points going into the final race on Monday with 350 points over Gravel, Wolfe, Dietrich and Esh.

Smith set fast time in qualifications with a lap of 16.639 seconds.

Josh Weller drove from fourth into the lead on the first lap of the URC sprint feature with ninth starter Mark Smith already up to second on the third lap.

Smith wasted little time getting the lead, overtaking Weller on the fifth tour for the point.

Doing double duty on the night as was several drivers, Greg Hodnett was up to third as the field worked through traffic when he blew a left rear tire on the 11th loop, slowing the pace.

Smith had Eric Tomecek in pursuit for the restart but the rest of the field was no match for Smith’s racer as he took the victory going away, winning by 4.740 seconds over Tomecek.

Matt Campbell was third followed by Adam Carberry and 17th starter Steve Buckwalter.

Sixth through 10th went to Davie Franek, Curt Michael, TJ Stutts, Robbie Stillwaggon and Lucas Wolfe.

Heats for the 39 URC sprints went to Stillwaggon, Hodnett, Tomecek and Franek with Aaron Ott scoring the consolation.

TOMECEK’S MISFORTUNE HANDS SMITH SPRINT CAR KRAMER CUP;
KNAUB & RINE SPLIT WINS IN DUAL LATE MODEL MAIN EVENTS;
HOFFMAN RETURNS TO PRO STOCK VICTORY LANE

STELLAR FIELD OF RACE CARS, THRILLING RACING ACTION & FIREWORKS
HIGHLIGHTED BIG HOLIDAY RACING PROGRAM!

SELINSGROVE, Pa. -- Selinsgrove Speedway presented the Third Annual Selinsgrove Ford/ United Racing Club Kramer Cup Saturday, May 28, to honor the memory of sprint car racing legend Kramer Williamson of Palmyra, who succumbed to injuries he sustained in a sprint car racing accident at the Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown in 2013. The tribute race marked the second event of the season at Selinsgrove sanctioned by the United Racing Club 360 sprint cars.

There is an old saying that sometimes it is better to be lucky than good. Saturday night's Newville Family of Companies/United Racing Club 360 Sprint Car Kramer Cup feature played out in a way similar to that saying. It was the misfortune of race-long leader Eric Tomecek, who hit the third turn wall with two to go, that handed the lead to Mark Smith. Smith had just finished a multi-lap side by side battle with TJ Stutts for the runner up spot when Tomecek wrecked.

Smith got a good start over Stutts on lap 28 and left Jason Shultz and Stutts in battle for second on his way to his second Kramer Cup win and his 17th career Selinsgrove Speedway win. Smith has won eight URC events at the track since 2012. Saturday night’s $2,573 victory was Smith’s second of the season at Selinsgrove driving the Mach 1 Chassis No. 1 entry.

Smith, Stutts, Shultz, Josh Weller, and Curt Michael were the top five finishers. URC point leader Davie Franek finished in sixth with Troy Betts seventh. Robbie Stillwaggon, Ed Aikin, and Adam Carberry rounded out the top ten finishers.

Josh Weller, Robbie Stillwagon, TJ Stutts, and Mark Smith won heat races for the 34 360 Sprint Car field with the B-Main being won by Nate Snyder. Selinsgrove Ford sponsored $73 to win all heat races in memory of Williamson. Jordan Thomas was the IBEW Local Electrical Union 1319 Hard Charger by advancing nine positions in the A-main.

Gene Knaub looked like a lock to win the feature that was being made up from April 30th for the Jeff's Auto Body & Recycling Late Models to kick off the night’s racing. Knaub began to have mechanical failure with three laps to go. A two-second lead vanished and Steve Campbell and Coleby Frye were on the leader's tail when the field saw two to go. Knaub withstood the late-race challenges to hang on and win his second career Selinsgrove feature and become the second different winner in the class this season.

Campbell settled for second and held off Frye who finished third. Jeff Rine finished in fourth with Chad Hollenbeck following in fifth. Tony Adams, Jim Yoder, Dave Zona, Matt Cochran, and Austin Berry rounded out the top ten finishers.

Jeff Rine started from the front row of the second Late Model feature of the night looking for his 98th career Selinsgrove Speedway feature win. By lap nine Rine was in lapped traffic while Steve Campbell worked his way to the front. Rine looked to have the field covered when a late race restart gave Campbell a shot at the leader. Campbell was unable to make the move around Rine on the restart and Rine drifted out of Campbell’s reach to the win.

Campbell was able to hold off pole setter Chris Casner for second. The second place finish was Campbell’s third runner-up finish in the three Late Model races this year at the track. Casner had to settle for third. Tony Adams and Bryan Bernheisel finished out the top five finishers. Jim Yoder came across the line in sixth followed by Chad Hollenback, Shawn Jones, Coleby Frye, and Hayes Mattern. Bryan Bernheisel, Chad Hollenbeck, and Shawn Jones won the heat races with Gene Knaub winning the consolation.

AJ Hoffman led the early stages of the A&A Auto Stores Pro Stock main event while Curtis Lawton hounded him for the race lead. Brandon Moser soon joined the duel at the front for the lead. As Lawton and Moser ran side-by-side Hoffman began to pull away. Opening night winner Andrew Shoop soon joined the race for second. On lap 7, just before halfway Shoop slid into second. Shoop closed a little bit on Hoffman, but could not reel in the race leader before the 15-lap feature ended.

Hoffman secured his first win at the track since 2012 saying he didn’t know if he would ever get back to victory lane. Shoop was second just ahead of Moser, Lawton, and Nate Stroup. John Troxell was sixth followed by Jim Payne, Dan Condo, Tommy Slanker, and Bill Conrad. Hoffman and Moser were heat race winners.

Next Saturday night, June 4, at Selinsgrove Speedway the United Racing Club 360 Sprint Cars will return to compete along with the 305 Sprints in an open wheel doubleheader. The rescheduled A&A Auto Stores Pro Stock 20 will also be on the racing card along with two roadrunner features. Gates will open at 5 pm with racing at 7pm.

Saturday night the Central PA 358 Point Series was back in Action at Lincoln Speedway and the series saw a new face in victory lane for the 2nd race in a row. CJ Tracey of York Pa would lead all 20 laps of the feature and old off Mike Bittinger, Chandler Leiby, Jeff Rohrbaugh and Jeff Halligan. With his win Tracey has become the 223 different driver to score a victory in the 358 division.

TONY JACKSON SCORES BIG WIN IN BUD BRICKER NATIONALS

Alex Bright Takes ARDC Win while Jason Townsend Earns Street Stock Win

By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway YORK HAVEN, PA 5/28/16

In what was billed as by far the best race of the season, Newville’s Tony Jackson scored his first career Susquehanna Speedway win in Saturday night’s Bud Bricker Nationals.

Jackson took the win in the 30-lap Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman feature after taking the lead on lap 19 and then holding on following a last lap restart.

New one lap track record holder and dash winner Scott Dellinger started on the pole and led the first three laps before giving way to fellow front row starter Scott Geesey.

Geesey held the point until lap 18 when third-starting Jackson drove his Clair Finkenbinder owned, McCoy Brothers General Contractors, Alvin Beam Painting, Liberator Performance #17J into the lead with 19 laps complete.

Jackson was headed to victory when a final lap caution for a stopped Timmie Barrick set up a one lap shootout. He then had to fend off eighth starting Kevin Nouse before earning the $2,000 payday. Jackson became the fifth different winner in six events this season.

Dellinger settled for the third spot ahead of Geesey and Chad Criswell with Mike Enders, Kenny Edkin, Rich Eichelberger, Doug Dodson and Paul Miller completing the top 10 finishers.

Dellinger set a new one lap track record in time trials with a lap of 17.086 seconds. He also won the Dash.

Heats for the 30 Super Sportsman were won by Dellinger, Geesey and Russ Mitten, who was running third on the final lap of the feature before suffering a flat tire. The consolation went to Gregg Foster.

Alex Bright earned the Hard Charger Award, coming from his ninth starting spot to win the 20-lap ARDC Midget feature. It was Bright’s first win of the year at Susquehanna.

Bright inherited the lead on lap nine after race leader Ryan Greth blew up while leading the event.

Bright took the win over Jim Radney, Brent Arndt, 11th starting Danny Stratton and Justin Grosz.

Trevor Kobylarz and Greth were heat winners for the 17 ARDC Midgets.

Jason Townsend came from his sixth starting spot to take the lead on lap four of the 20-lap Street Stock feature and never looked back in becoming the first repeat winner in the division this season.

Townsend held on through four cautions to score the win over Jim Palm, Hard Charger Randy Zech man (up from 12th), Bob Scott, Jr. and Chris Derr.

Thirty-seven street stocks signed in for action with heat race wins going to Sean Todd, Chad Stine, Jimmy Combs and Chris Heller. The consolation was won by Eric Tripp.

The night’s events were run in honor of Bud Bricker, the man who built Susquehanna Speedway back in 1954.

Susquehanna Speedway returns to action on June 4th on Tyson Fence Night as the Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman joined by the Xtreme Stocks, Road Warriors and PENMAR Cars. It will also be the Auto Racing Club of Hagerstown (ARCH) Night at the speedway. .Pits open at 4PM with grandstands opening at 5PM and racing beginning at 7PM.

MONTIETH COMES FROM 12TH TO WIN THRILLING NON-STOP LINCOLN HILLY RIFE MEMORIAL;

C.J. Tracy scores first career win in “358” sprints; Montgomery claims Central PA Legends feature

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 5/28/2016 – “Hero or zero, Baby!”

So exclaimed Brian Montieth in summarizing his twelfth-to-first run in a thrilling $5,000-to-win Hilly Rife Memorial non-stop 30 lap feature event at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

It was a run that saw Montieth advance from fifth to first over the final five laps.

He passed both Billy Dietrich and Jim Siegel on lap 27 to move into third, caught Cory Haas for second on lap 29, and drove around Glenndon Forsythe on the final turn to claim his 52nd career Lincoln win.

In the end, the race took just 8 minutes, 18.723 seconds, and the top three crossed the finish line just .777 seconds apart.

“Absolutely not. I had no idea,” reacted Montieth when asked if he knew where he was in the running order over the final laps, “I was trying to look at the board and make sure no one went to the top on me. I thought Glenndon was definitely going to the top on turns one and two of the last lap. I was better than him in one and two, but everyone was just holding their own in three and four.

“It just came alive toward the end,” continued Montieth, “At the beginning of the race, we struggled, and I thought we were just going to run around the rubber. That’s not me. Luckily, the top came in and I finally felt comfortable in the car. Here we stand.”

A disappointed Forsythe, who took the lead from Chad Trout on lap 19, crossed second, with Haas third.

Completing the top five were Billy Dietrich and Siegel. Sixth through tenth were Robbie Kendall, Alan Krimes, polesitter Chad Trout (who grabbed the lead on a second attempt to start the race and led the first 18 laps), Austin Hogue, and front row starter Frankie Herr.

Heats for the 28 410 sprinters were won by Montieth, Herr, and Haas, with Brandon Rahmer winning the consolation.

York’s C.J. Tracy claimed his first career win in the 20-lap 358 sprint car feature. Tracy started on the pole and was the class of the field. A last-lap spin by fifth-place Ryan Higgins set up the final lap restart, but it was to no avail, with Tracy crossing .75 seconds ahead of fellow front-row starter Mike Bittinger.

Chandler Leiby, Jeff Rohrbaugh, and Jeff Halligan completed the top five.

Heats for the 30 358 sprinters were won by Tyler Esh, Halligan, and Matt Campbell, with Chris Frank winning the consolation.

A wild, caution-filled 20-lap Central PA Legends feature saw York’s Lucas Montgomery score his fifth Lincoln career win. Despite several lead changes within laps, there were five official lead changes during the race. Between laps 13 and 16, there was a different leader each lap.

Bill Diehl led the first 12 laps, before things got interesting, with Harlon Leppo leading lap 13, Mason Chaney leading lap 14, Diehl back in front on lap 15, and Montgomery taking the lead for good on lap 16.

Second through fifth were Leppo, Diehl, Travis Perry, and Justice Forbes.

Heats for the 27 Central PA Legends were won by Chaney, Leppo, and Chad Earnst.

Next Saturday night, June 4th, at 7:30 PM, it will be APPLE CHRYSLER/DODGE/JEEP/RAM OF HANOVER NIGHT and York County Racing Club Night featuring the 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints, and 358 Late Models. Gates open at 5:30 PM.

Hodnett Class Of Saturday Weikert Memorial Sprint Field, Round Two Is Sunday

Dylan Yoder claims companion super late model main

5/28/16

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Greg Hodnett drove from the sixth starting spot to overtake Lucas Wolfe and win round one of the three-day Bob Weikert Memorial for sprint cars on Saturday night at Port Royal Speedway, taking a $5,000 victory in the Fallen Heroes Championship.

It was Hodnett’s third victory of the season at the track.

In the Fallen Heroe’s Championship for super late models, Dylan Yoder of Selinsgrove wired the field for a $2,000 victory, claiming the event a year after his father Jim won the race.

Only one caution flag slowed the 30-lap sprint car feature and that didn’t occur until lap 25.

However during the pace laps before the initial green, the red flag unfurled for Anthony Fiore who flipped in the first corner.

Wolfe rocketed into the lead from the pole when green flag action began, followed on the first lap by fourth starter Brock Zearfoss along with Danny Dietrich.

Hodnett began his advances early in the race, getting by Doug Esh for fourth on the third lap and then battling by Dietrich for third a lap later.

However Esh and Dietrich fought hard for the spots and both had again gotten back around Hodnett on lap five.

That only seemed to motivate Hodnett however as he would regroup to again march forward as the race continued with Wolfe having entered the backmarkers on the sixth tour.

Dietrich slipped backward on the eighth tour, giving way to invader David Gravel aboard the Clemens No. 5.

Meanwhile Hodnett was again up to fourth and he again got by Esh, this time for third on the 11th circuit.

Wolfe had built up a large lead at the front but Hodnett consistently cut into the advantages of the front duo to fly by Zearfoss for second with 16 laps to go.

Hodnett did his best work early in the night low off of the second turn but it was dives through the third turn that would net him second and the lead as he drove in and then across the track with 12 to go to get by Wolfe and take command.

Gravel started fifth in the event and steadily advanced to be running third as Hodnett took the lead.

He then got by Wolfe on the 19th tour and began a pursuit of the new leader.

Eighth starter Lance Dewease was the next driver to flex his muscle, beginning a march into contention around the halfway point to be sitting fifth with 10 laps to go.

Three laps later, just before the lone caution of the race, Dewease chugged into third behind Gravel.

The restart with five laps to go took place with a lapped car separating Hodnett and Gravel and another between Gravel and Dewease.

This prevented either challenger from getting a clear shot at Hodnett and that allowed Hodnett to get away and cruise unchallenged to the checkers.

Hodnett took the win by 1.023 seconds over Gravel with Dewease third followed by Wolfe and Esh.

Sixth through 10th went to Zearfoss, Dietrich, Ryan Smith, Aaron Ott and Pat Cannon.

Ott earned the $200 Hard Charger award for his drive from 23rd to ninth and also earned a guaranteed starting spot in Sunday nights second round of the three-race Weikert series.

Heats for the 34-car field went to Esh, Mike Wagner, Hodnett and Dietrich with the consolation race going to Joey Hershey.

Dylan Yoder used his pole position to take charge of the super late model main at the start however before a lap could be recorded Trent Brenneman spun at the front of the field, collecting several cars.

Yoder again took off when action resumed and entered the backmarkers on the fifth loop.

Another yellow flag bunched the field on the ninth circuit showing Yoder the leader over Mike Lupfer and Gary Stuhler.

Yoder wasn’t challenged on the restart nor was he challenged on a final restart with seven laps to go.

Lupfer ended up finishing second, 1.452 seconds behind at the end, followed by Stuhler, Scott Flickinger and Patrick Bryner.

Sixth through 10th went to Troy Swindell, Billy Wampler, Jeff Miller, Tim Wilson and Jason Schmidt.

Heats for the 27-car field went to Lupfer, Yoder and Andy Haus with the consolation going to Chad Myers.

Wolfe Wins Williams Grove Diamond Series 4K, Reeser Scores 305 Sprints

5/27/16

Mechanicsburg – Mechanicsburg’s Lucas Wolfe wired the field from the pole to take the $4,000 victory in Friday night’s Diamond Series event for sprint cars at Williams Grove Speedway.

The victory was the 14th of Wolfe’s career at the historic speedway, coming by 1.183 seconds over Brian Montieth.

In the 305-sprint main, Orwigsburg’s Tyler Reeser drove to victory, holding off Colby Dice for the win.

Wolfe was flanked by Ryan Smith on the front row for the start of the 25-lap sprint car main but third starter Brian Montieth motored into second on the start and would give chase of the leader the entire distance.

Wolfe entered the backmarkers on the sixth tour with Montieth in pursuit but it took until lap 11 for Montieth to even get close enough to even begin to think about making a move for control.

The leader worked traffic with relative ease aboard the Zemco No. 1 sprinter and was able to hold Montieth at a safe distance for the majority of the event.

The only caution flag of the event unfurled with five laps to go, wiping out a 1.082 second advantage that Wolfe had over the field at the time.

And the restart would prove to be Montieth’s only opportunity to grab the win as the Phoenixville flyer drove to Wolfe’s inside deep in the first corner with a bid only to fall short as the pair exited the second turn.

From there Wolfe cruised to the checkers, his first of the season at Williams Grove.

Smith ran third the entire distance to finish with the spot followed by fifth starter Greg Hodnett and Stevie Smith.

Sixth through 10th went to Pat Cannon, Doug Esh, Danny Dietrich, Austin Hogue and Brock Zearfoss.

Heats went to Esh, Dietrich and Cannon. Stevie Smith set quick time in qualifications with a lap of 16.363 seconds.

Donnie Hendershot led the first lap of the 305 sprint main before Tyler Reeser took over after a close race back to the line.

Reeser had just seen Colby Dice drive into second when the red flag appeared on the fourth lap for a second turn flip by Zach Newlin.

Dice challenged Reeser briefly when action resumed but Reeser was up to the challenge, opening up a near straightaway advantage at points to pick up the win.

Dice rode home second followed by Jaremi Hanson, Ken Duke and John Martin.

Sixth through 10th went to Stephanie Dodson, Kyle Ganoe, John Barnett, Cale Reigle and Scott Lutz.

John Barnett was the Wee Bee Audio and Video Hard Charger in the event, finishing eighth after starting 22nd in the feature.

Heats went to Reeser, Hendershot and Hanson.

The entire racing program was delayed in starting over an hour thanks to poorly timed light showers that persisted during the early evening.

May 27, 2016 Feature Finishes:

410 sprints, 25 laps: 1. Lucas Wolfe, 2. Brian Montieth, 3. Ryan Smith, 4. Greg Hodnett, 5. Stevie Smith, 6. Pat Cannon, 7. Doug Esh, 8. Danny Dietrich, 9. Austin Hogue, 10. Brock Zearfoss, 11.

Three-Day Port Royal Weikert Memorial Weekend Attracting The Stars

Haudenschild, Holtgraver, Shaffer, Starks & Dewease hope to compete

Weikert No. 29 Show Cars To Be Displayed

5/25/16

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – The big three-day Bob Weikert Memorial sprint car spectacular is set for this weekend, May 28, 29 and 30 at Port Royal Speedway.

And the prestigious, rich event is attracting various sprint car stars from outside the area to compete while also seducing one noted local new powerhouse team to toss its hat into the ring.

Just days after winning their first Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions features of the season on the road in Ohio, All Stars regulars Sheldon Haudenschild of Wooster, Oh., and Danny Holtgraver of Pittsburgh have confirmed their intent to compete in the Sunday and Monday legs of the Port Royal Weikert show.

Both pilots, who have experienced notable success at Port Royal although falling just short of a trip to the winner’s circle, have tentative plans in place to tow eastward to Port Royal for the second half of the weekend following their performances in All Stars circuit action on both Friday and Saturday.

Also announcing his plans to compete in all three events is four-time All Stars titlist Tim Shaffer of Aliquippa aboard the Tom Buch entry.

And Trey Starks of Puyallup, Washington, will also be on hand to race in the Sunday and Monday events.

Also confirming intent to compete at the oval on Saturday and Sunday is long time track favorite Lance Dewease.

And while Dewease’s attendance by itself may not be groundbreaking, the mount he will compete in is sure to rattle the earth as he pulls the Kreitz-owned No. 69K onto the Port Royal clay for the first time in his illustrious career.

The familiar blue Kreitz colors have not visited the track since Don Kreitz Jr. himself romped to victory in a thrilling Tuscarora 50 performance back in 2013 and the car has always been a force anytime it enters the Port Royal pit area.

And this time around should be no different as the team continues to be wrenched by renown mechanic Dave Brown Sr. and it is coming off a Dewease trouncing of the World of Outlaws at Williams Grove Speedway on May 20.

In fact, the car has won the last three times it has been in action.

Danny Dietrich of Gettysburg will be on hand for all three races, campaigning a replica No. 29 sprint car in honor of the late, great car owner Bob Weikert of Fairfield.

In addition, two No. 29 show cars will be on display during the weekend.

On hand for all three dates will be a 1971 Trevis Craft entry as piloted by Kenny Weld and on Monday only the oval will host a 1985 restored No. 29 as driven by the great Doug Wolfgang.

Gates for the Saturday and Sunday shows open at 4 pm with 7 pm racing slated while Monday’s finale gets underway at 5:30 pm with gates opening at 2:30 pm.

******

Plans are in place for pay-per-view live streaming of the upcoming three-day Bob Weikert Memorial Sprint Car Spectacular at Port Royal Speedway.

There of course will be no substitute for attending in person but the three-day Port Royal sprinting special in honor of Weikert will be hosted on www.dirtstation.com for those who just can’t attend.

The shows will be interspersed with vintage film and video clips of Port Royal action from days and years gone by as well as of event honoree, the late Bob Weikert as well as his famous No. 29 sprint cars.

Live streaming rates for the Saturday kickoff will be $20 as well as for the second round on Sunday while Monday’s show will be available for $15.

******

The three-day Weikert Memorial 410 sprints will compete in the now traditional Fallen Heroes Championship on Saturday featuring a 30-lap main paying $5,000 to win and $400 to start.

Passing points awarded from qualifying events will be used to align the main event starting grid.

The super late models will race in a 25-lap Fallen Heroes Championship as well, paying $2,000 to win and $200 to start.

Action then swings to Sunday night when the Weikert Memorial sprints spin off time trials to set heat grids before moving on to a 35-lap feature paying a whopping $10,000 to win and $500 just to start.

The URC Sprints will also be part of the Sunday program, competing in a 25-lap feature paying $3,000 to win and $250 to start thanks to Greencastle Livestock Market.

Special bonuses of $200 each will be paid to the three highest finishing 358 sprint cars that race in the URC main event thanks to Racers Used Parts Warehouse.

A day later the whole weekend of sprint car mania culminates with an early evening program for the Weikert Memorial sprints paying $5,000 to win in a 25-lap main.

And after the dust settles, the three-day Weikert Memorial Champion will be crowned and a five-position point fund worth nearly $9,000 will be paid out with the title holder himself going home with $3,000.

In the event of only two events being completed due to weather, a two-day point fund worth more than $6,000 will be distributed.

All three events have a posted $200 Hard Charger Award sponsored by Lone Dakota Acres of Stephenville, Tx., and The Beer Hill Gang up for grabs with the Saturday and Sunday Hard Charger earning a guaranteed starting spot in the following days main event.

******

FREE GIVEAWAYS will be the name of the game for the May 28 and 29 show dates of the Weikert Weekend with over 1,000 Weikert items alone to be given out between the two nights including mugs, hats, can coolers and more plus as Sunday is also Pepsi Night, another 200 Pepsi shirts and hats will be given out on Sunday.

All giveaways will take place at the main admission gate under the grandstand.

Along with the Pepsi shirts and hats on Sunday, numerous 12-packs of soda will be given away along with tickets to local amusement parks and more.

At both the Saturday and Sunday shows, five girls and five boys bicycles will be given away to kids ages 12 and under and one adult fan will go home with a large flat screen TV at each of the three shows.

Fireworks are part of the Saturday racing program

Adult general admission for Saturday is set at $20 with students ages 12 – 18 priced at $7 while Sunday is $25 with students priced at $10 while Monday’s adult admission is $15 with students set at $7.

Driver Forecast: Dirt Classic Showcase presented by Leffler Energy

(PETERSEN MEDIA)- In today’s world we often find ourselves trying to predict anything and everything. As a sports fan we often try to predict who our team is going to draft, as a racer or race fan we often find ourselves trying to determine what the weather is going to do on a weekly basis. Race fans are also always trying to figure out what drivers are going to be at their local track on any given night, which in this sport is sometimes rather difficult.

The team at the Dirt Classic has teamed up with resident experts from the areas of our upcoming races to try as best as we can to predict what drivers will be at each given event and place them on our event Big Board.

Dirt Classic Showcase presented by Leffler Energy is fast approaching, and with the event taking place at Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, PA, we teamed up with Lincoln Speedway feature writer, Anthony Corini to get his thoughts on the event and his ideas of who he would expect to check in on June 11th.

The Favorites: With the season off and running at Lincoln Speedway a driver always capable of taking home the checkered flag on any given night is ‘The Edge’ Brian Montieth. Montieth was the Dirt Classic Champion in 2015 and will be a huge threat to grab the second Golden Ticket into the event during Dirt Classic Showcase presented by Leffler Energy. “Montieth is one driver that always comes to mind when talking about Lincoln Speedway,” Corini noted. “He is the five time and defending track champion, and knows his way around the speedway.”

The two-time and defending winner of this Dirt Classic qualifier is none other than Danny Dietrich, and there is no way he wants someone to come in and break this streak as he looks for an early entry into the $20,000-To-Win, $1,000-to-start Dirt Classic once again. One of the most outspoken, and talented drivers in Central PA, Dietrich will be in the mix no matter where he starts. “Danny Dietrich has become a household name at the Lincoln Speedway, and will be a favorite to win the Dirt Classic Showcase presented by Leffler Energry,” Corini added. “He has countless wins at Lincoln Speedway and seems to show out when the stakes are raised.”

Another driver we think will have a say in the Dirt Classic Showcase presented by Leffler Energy is Stevie Smith. Having tremendous success over the course of his storied career, Smith has been a dominant force in since joining forces with Fred Rahmer and his RBM Motorsports team. Picking up a World of Outlaws win and the Inaugural Dirt Classic win both at Lincoln Speedway, we urge you to keep track of Stevie Smith.

Our last favorite would be none other than Greg Hodnett. Though not a Lincoln Speedway regular, Hodnett seems to have success with the Heffner Racing team each time he checks into the speedway, as he is the only repeat winner at the track in 2016. With a laundry list of accolades already on his resume, Hodnett will be in the hunt for the Golden Ticket on June 11th. “Hodnett currently leads the area in wins, and is racing really well right now,” Corini noted. “He just picked up another win at Lincoln recently and always seems to be good when he rolls through the pit gate.”

The Dark Horses: Hoping to not slight these two drivers, but Ryan Smith and Alan Krimes just may fly under the radar as this event gets closer. Both drivers are smooth, and have been getting stronger year after year. . “Both Ryan Smith and Alan Krimes are more than capable of pulling off a big win like this,” Corini added. “Though they do not quite have the star power of some of our odds on favorites, they have continued to show speed and the ability to compete up front.”

Most Likely To Take The Challenge: Aside from granting the race winner a Golden Ticket into the $20,000-To-Win $1,000-To-Start Dirt Classic in September, the Dirt Classic Showcase presented by Leffler Energy also features as ‘Pay to Pass Challenge’ where one driver will have the opportunity to go to the back of the pack and earn some serious cash for each car they pass. Heading into the June 11th event, Corini thinks Double-D, Danny Dietirch is the driver most likely to accept the task.

“Heading into this race, there are a few drivers that I think are capable of taking the challenge and having success with it, but with his flare for the dramatic Danny Dietrich would be my pick,” Corini explained. “Other candidates I could see taking it would be Brian Montieth because he is a threat to win from where against any group of cars, and Alan Krimes because he seems to get better as the race goes on and as the track slicks off.”

THIRD ANNUAL KRAMER CUP WILL HONOR MEMORY OF RACING LEGEND KRAMER WILLIAMSON THIS SATURDAY AT SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY; PRE-RACE SELINSGROVE FORD RACE CAR DISPLAY & MARKET STREET PARADE WILL HIGHLIGHT HOLIDAY WEEKEND OF MOTORSPORTS EVENTS!

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Selinsgrove Speedway will present the Third Annual Selinsgrove Ford/United Racing Club Kramer Cup at 7 p.m. this Saturday, May 28, to honor the memory of sprint car racing legend Kramer Williamson of Palmyra. The 30-lap 360 sprint car race will pay $2,573 to win and $273 to start.

Williamson succumbed to injuries he sustained in a sprint car racing accident at the Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown in August of 2013. The tribute race will mark the second event of the season at Selinsgrove Speedway sanctioned by the United Racing Club 360 sprint car contingent.

For most of his racing career, Williamson drove the famous “Pink Panther” No. 73 sprint car and won hundreds of races across the country as well as in Australia and Canada. He clinched sprint car track championships at Selinsgrove Speedway and Williams Grove Speedway, where he also was a former winner of the prestigious Williams Grove National Open. In 2008, Williamson was recognized for his incredible accomplishments in auto racing when he was inducted into the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame in Knoxville, Iowa.

At Selinsgrove Speedway, Williamson’s lone championship was in 1978. His first win in a super sprint car at the track was on Sept. 3, 1973, and his last was on Aug. 10, 1981. He is tied with Barry Camp of Beavertown for the ninth spot on the track’s all-time win list for super sprint cars with 25 career victories.

During the latter part of his career, Williamson had been touring on the URC circuit. He scored a single URC win at Selinsgrove on July 8, 1995, which was the last time he won a race at his former home track. In all, Williamson recorded 67 career wins and three championships with URC.

The qualifying format for the Kramer Cup will include heat races (draw for starting positions) and a B-main. The winner of the 30-lap feature will receive a custom pink trophy cup to commemorate the victory.

Joining the 360 sprint cars on the racing card will be the super late models and pro stocks. The super late models will have two features, including the April 30 makeup event. Track gates will open at 5 p.m.

Mark Smith of Sunbury won the inaugural Kramer Cup in 2014, with Robbie Stillwaggon of Burlington, N.J., scoring the prestigious victory in last year’s race.

Members of the Williamson family are expected to be in attendance with one of the Pink Panther No. 73 sprint cars on display at the track. Race fans and teams are invited to wear pink apparel to honor the memory of Williamson.

SELINSGROVE FORD PRE-RACE CAR DISPLAY & MARKET STREET PARADE!

>From 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday, there will be a race car display on the Selinsgrove Ford lot located at 10 North Susquehanna Trail in Selinsgrove that will be open to the public. In addition, there will be several prize raffles, games, a dunk tank, and a chicken bar-b-q benefitting the Dauntless Hook & Ladder Fire Co. throughout the afternoon courtesy of Selinsgrove Ford.

At 4 p.m., drivers will start their race cars and drive them in the Third Annual Selinsgrove Ford Market Street Race Car Parade that will start at the dealership, proceed through downtown Selinsgrove, and conclude at the speedway.

Race teams interested in participating in the parade need to register with Kelly Long at Selinsgrove Ford at 570.374.8131.

Capitol Renegade KING of the 358's Series

This week the Capitol Renegade KING of the 358's Series took center stage at Trail Way
Speedway as they hosted round 4 of the 8 race series. 22 cars jammed the pits, the highest
car count in many years at the Hanover bullring for the 1st of 2 races in the KING series.
Point leader Kevin Nouse and 2nd place in points Adrian Shaffer both in attendence looking
for the $2,000 top prize and the honor of being called the King of the 358 division.

Round 1 winner Doug Hammaker would use a late re start to take the lead from race long
leader Cody Fletcher and capture his 2nd win of the series. The win was Hammakers division
leading 4th win of the season but was not much help as King series leader Nouse would
charge from his 18th starting posistion to a very hard fought 5th place finish helping him
keep control of the point lead. Adrian Shaffer would battle back from an early spin in
turn 4 to finish 7th and keep pace with Nouse at the half way point of the series. Mike
Bittinger would finish 2nd in the 25 lap spring championship race which paid $1,200 to the
winner. Jeff Halligan would finish 3rd and 2015 358 point series rookie of the year Dave
Holbrook would finish 4th with Nouse rounding out the top 5.

The Capitol Renegade KING of the 358's series is now half over and we have seen 51
different drivers compete in the series. The drivers will get a week off before turning
their attention to Lincoln Speedway on June 4th for round 5 of the series. With Lincoln
Speedway getting the biggest car counts all season for the 358 division, it will be extra
hard for the leaders to maintain their lead.

The top 10 in points for the Capitol Renegade KING of the 358's Series look like this...

1. Kevin Nouse - 13 Pts.
2. Adrian Shaffer - 20 Pts.(1 win)

LANCE DEWEASE DOMINATES OPENING NIGHT OF MORGAN CUP WEEKEND BEATING WORLD OF OUTLAWS AT WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY

MECHANICSBURG, PA – Lance Dewease blasted by Greg Hodnett in turn three for the lead and then dominated the remaining 16 laps to win the Craftsman World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series feature Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway.

Dewease, of Fayetteville, earned $8,000 for his second straight Grove win driving for Donnie Kreitz. It was his 83rd career Grove win.

He was running third on lap seven behind Daryn Pittman and leader Greg Hodnett. He blasted under Pittman entering turn three to take second. He made the same impressive move the next time around to take the lead from Hodnett.

“I had to move up and that’s how I caught them,” said Dewease. “I actually wasn’t bad in the middle. I knew sooner or later it was going to rubber-up around the bottom, so I went back down and felt pretty good there. Greg was kind of just sitting there. When you’re leading, it’s so hard to move around, and the guy in second has all the advantage in the world. Greg was good all night and we just happened to get to him before it rubbered-up.”

Hodnett started on the pole and took the lead from Joey Saldana on the opening lap of the 25-lap main event. Dewease started third, but fell to fourth behind Pittman on the opening lap.

Pittman and Saldana raced hard for second with Pittman gaining the spot. Dewease passed Saldana on the frontstretch to take third with four laps completed.

Dewease was searching the track surface for speed and found some. He drove hard under Pittman into turn three and took the runner-up spot as lap eight was completed. He had Hodnett in his sights now and made the identical move the next lap to take the lead.

He caught lapped traffic with 13 laps completed, but the yellow flag flew for Tim Shaffer.

Dewease picked the bottom for the double-file restart and drove away from Hodnett on the restart. In only two laps, his lead was nearly three seconds.

The bottom lane became the preferred line over the final laps and Dewease was stuck behind slower cars allowing Hodnett to close.

Hodnett tried the outside lane in turn one on the final lap, but couldn’t make up any more ground.

Dewease scored the win by 0.843 seconds over Hodnett.

“At the end, I was struggling a little bit,” said Dewease. “I didn’t know if Greg could do anything outside the rubber. I made sure I didn’t get on anybody’s rear bumper.”

“He really hauled that thing in there,” said Kreitz of Dewease’s third turn passes. “He didn’t hesitate and I couldn’t believe how hard he hauled it in and got both those guys. They were both great moves.”

Defending and seven-time Outlaws champion Donny Schatz would finish third ahead of Pittman and Danny Dietrich.

Saldana, Doug Esh, Shane Stewart, Ryan Smith and T.J. Stutts rounded out the top 10.

Saldana set overall quick time with a lap of 17.186 seconds. He was in the first flight of cars. Hodnett had quick time in the second flight of cars with a lap of 17.524 seconds.

Eight-lap heat races for the 39-car field were won by Saldana, Dewease, Hodnett and Pittman. Hodnett won the dash and Outlaws point leader Brad Sweet won the Last Chance Showdown.

Weather permitting, the Grove returns to action Saturday night with The Morgan Cup sanctioned by the Outlaws.

HAMMAKER WINS INSINGER PERFORMANCE FUELS SPRING CHAMPIONSHIP THRILLER

HANOVER, PA (5/20/2016) – “This is the hardest place to race in Pennsylvania. Anyone who doesn’t believe it can come down here.”

So said Doug Hammaker after making it look easy in scoring his second win of the season in the Insinger Performance Fuels Sprint Championship for “358” sprint cars at Trail-Way Speedway Friday night.

A redraw by the top 12 drivers placed Hammaker fifth for the start. Hammaker methodically worked his way through the top five as Cody Fletcher was leading the first 23 laps from the pole. Hammaker caught Seth Kearchner for second on lap 17 and drove around Fletcher for the race lead in turn two of a 24th-lap restart.

Fletcher and Seth Kearchner got together on the final turn as the checkered was waving, leading to a mad scramble over the final quarter-lap which didn’t matter, because scoring reverted to the last completed lap for everyone but the winner.

Ninth-starting Mike Bittinger was credited with second, followed by Jeff Halligan, David Holbrook, and hard charger Kevin Nouse (who started 18th).

“I know the World of Outlaws are in town, but we have better racing and I want to thank the fans for coming out,” said Hammaker, “We’re just having fun right now.”

Qualifiers for the 22 “358” sprinters were won by Isaac Sneeringer, Fletcher, and Kearchner.

Brian Marriott assumed the race lead when Cory Myers ran out of fuel entering turn three of lap 17 and drove to the.91-seond win in the 20-lap Maxon-Dixon 270cc micro-sprint feature sponsored by Lucas Oil.

It was Marriott’s first Trail-Way win of the year and the fourth of his TW career.

Steven Cox, Joe Long, Jr., Levi Peck; and Zachary Glass completed the top five.

Polesitter Bill Laughman led the first 14 laps before pulling to the infield two laps later after handing the lead to Cory Myers. Laughman’s mechanical issues were caused by a hole in the radiator.

Heats for the 27 micros were won by Nik Gower, Steven Cox, and Brent Bull, with Levi Peck taking the consolation event.

Marshall McMullen held off Zach Myers for his first career win in the 20-lap street stock feature. The former three-time TW thundercar winner started on the pole but yielded the lead to Jeremy Stremmel for the first 16 laps. The two switched the lead several times over the final four laps, with McMullen scored the leader each time around. Zach Myers caught Stremmel for second in the last turns, with Stremmel, Matt Wampler, and Michael Smith rounding out the top five.

Dan Furman, Myers, and Wampler won qualifying events.

Furman was uninjured in a last-lap crash of the feature event and credited with an 11th-place finish.

Matt Chronister slid under Justin Wagaman in the final turns to score his second win of the year in the 15-lap limited stock feature. It was Chronister’s 34th career TW win, and the final margin of victory ws just .15 seconds. Shane Miller, Jason Chronister, and Chad Weaver crossed third through fifth.

Jason Chronister and Julio Perez were heat winners for the 17 limited stocks on hand.

Next Friday, May 27th, the Hoosier Tire Mid-Atlantic 358 Sprints are back in action at Trail-Way Speedway along with the 600 Micro Sprints, ServiceMaster Clean Central PA Legends and the Street Stocks. This will be “Camera & Autograph Night” along with “Armed Forces Appreciation Night.” All Armed Forces personnel will receive free general admission with ID.

Action then swings to Sunday night, May 29 when the Weikert Memorial sprints spin off time trials to set heat grids before moving on to a 35-lap feature paying a whopping $10,000 to win and $500 just to start.

The URC Sprints will also be part of the Sunday program, competing in a 25-lap feature paying $2,000 to win and $200 to start.

After Sunday, less than a day later, the whole weekend of sprint car mania culminates with an afternoon program for the Weikert Memorial sprints paying $5,000 to win in a 25-lap main.

And after the dust settles, the three-day Weikert Memorial Champion will be crowned and a five-position point fund worth nearly $9,000 will be paid out with the title holder himself going home with $3,000.

In the event of only two events being completed due to weather, a two-day point fund worth more than $6,000 will be distributed.

NAPA AUTO PARTS THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES. . . . . .

USAC NON-WING SPRINTS & THE EASTERN STORM TO KICKOFF AT GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY TUESDAY NIGHT, JUNE 7

Three abreast racing, a few slide jobs, a wheelie or two and an occasional bounce off the outside guardrail is just the norm when the USAC non-wing sprints invade Grandview Speedway, and it all takes place on Tuesday night, June 7. Joined by the 358 NASCAR Modifieds, the AMSOIL Non-Wing USAC Sprint cars will open the Eastern Storm on the high-banked one-third mile oval. This event is part of the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series at Grandview and presented by Pioneer Pole Buildings.

What are the USAC stars saying about their return to Grandview?

Two time Eastern Storm Champion and winner of three Eastern Storm features said, “I’m excited to be heading back east for Eastern Storm again this year. The fans out there always come out in large numbers when we’re in town, and the atmosphere at Grandview for the opener is as electric as we see all season. Grandview is also a place we’ve had some success, so I’m looking forward to getting the week kicked off on the right foot and continuing our early season momentum.”

In 2014, Chase Stockon won the Grandview USAC show. “I am really excited to get back to Grandview this year! After winning in 2014, my whole team and I were bummed that Mother Nature didn’t cooperate with us last year. Grandview is a really unique track, and I have always taken a liking to it. The fans out there don’t get to see us race much, so they are always fired up for that race and make it feel like a special race. I feel very fortunate to be a part of the USAC show coming into town and hope we put on another great race for them.”

Brady Bacon, the 2014 Eastern Storm and USAC National champion will be back in 2015. “The Eastern Storm always seems to be a pivotal point of the season every year. It challenges all of our teams with tracks we don’t visit often and typically the strong teams shine over the course of the week. The atmosphere and excitement of the fans is unrivaled, especially at Grandview’s opening night. Pennsylvania fans are some of the most enthusiastic in the country, and I always look forward to heading east for this swing.”

Time trials for the USAC non-wing sprints will open the June 7 program. Some say the USAC time trials are worth the price of admission. Heat race qualifying will take place for the USAC sprints as well as the 358 Modifieds leading up to the 40 lap $6,000 to win Jesse Hockett Classic as the 358 Modifieds battle for $3,000 to win in a 30 lap feature. Gates open at 5 PM with race time set for 7:30 PM.

Wednesday night, June 8 it’s off to the Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, PA where it is all about “rub rails and rooster tails” as USAC and the 358 Sprints team-up for big double header of wing and non-wing sprint cars. Along with qualifying for both divisions, the 358 Sprint will battle in a 20 lap feature event paying $1,000 to win and $150 to take the green. This is a full points event for the 358 Sprints. The USAC Sprints will chase $6,000 to win in the 30 lap feature followed by a second USAC feature that will go 25 laps paying $3,000 to win. One USAC driver could possibly earn $9,000. The make-up feature should be a crowd please as the line-up will be determined by inverting the finish from the 30 lap feature. Gates open at 5 PM with qualifying getting underway at 7 PM for the three feature race card.

The AMSOIL Eastern Storm will move to the New Egypt Speedway on Thursday night, June 9. Friday night will be an off night for the series but they will return to action on Saturday night, June 11 at the Port Royal Speedway and close out the tour on Sunday night, June 12 at the Susquehanna Speedway in York Haven, PA.

Capitol Renegade KING of the 358's Series

On Friday night the Capitol Renegade KING of the 358's Series moved to the historic Williams Grove Speedway for round number 3 of the 8 race series. Adrian Shaffer would become the 3rd different winner in 3 King Series races leading all 20 laps. The points had a major shake up on Friday night as the King Series point leader Doug Hammaker the winner of round 1 at Susquehanna Speedway and coming off a 2nd place finish in round 2 this past Sunday night would have his wing come apart and could not get the wing replaced before the race went back to green. Hammaker would finish 19th on Friday night handing the point lead over to Kevin Nouse who now has a 5 point lead over Adrian Shaffer and an 8 point lead over Glenndon Forsythe. Hammaker falls back to 4th 14 points back and Tyler Esh rounds out the top 5 18 points back.

This coming Friday night the only 358 action of the weekend will be at Trail Way Speedway which host round 4 of the Capitol Renegade KING of the 358's Series. This race will be the wildcard for the KING series as some of the top 5 in series points have little experience getting around the bullring. Kevin Nouse had a top 5 last season in his only start while Adrian Shaffer is making his 1st career 358 start at the track. Doug Hammaker will be back at the track he picked up 1 of his 3 wins so far in 2016 when he won opeing night at the track. Will Glenndon Forsythe and Tyler Esh the other 2 drivers in the top 5 make their first starts of the season at the bullring or will the other 3 pull away from the pack?

On Saturday night The Central PA 358 Point Series took center stage at Lincoln Speedway and saw it's first new face in victory lane in 2016. Dalton Dietrich would lead all 20 laps of the feature event. Chris Frank would score his best career feature finish with his 2nd place finish while Jeff Halligan would finish third. Rounding out the top 5 where 358 rookie of the year contender Brent Shearer and Ryan Higgins with his best career 358 finish.

The point leaders of the Central PA 358 Point Series had a bad night as series leader Adrian Shaffer,Jeff Rohrbaugh, Matt Campbell and Doug Hammaker would be involved in an early race caution with only Rohrbaugh charging back through the field on the hard to pass surface to slavage a top 10. Adrian Shaffer would be able to hold onto the point series lead but now only has a 14 point lead heading into this weekends off weekend for the Central PA 358 Point Series. The top 5 in the Central PA 358 Point Series point standings are seperated by a mear 29 points.

Also this past week the Central PA 358 Point Series crowned the 2016 358 Most Popular Driver. 358 rookie Trey Hivner would win the award and become the 7th different driver to win the award entirly voted on by the fans on the Central PA 358 Point Series Face Book page.

HODNETT TAKES $5,000 TOP PRIZE ON BAPS NIGHT AT LINCOLN SPEEDWAY;
Dalton Dietrich scores first career win in “358” sprints; Fred Cullum wins All-American Outlaw feature
ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 5/14/2016 – Central Pennsylvania “410” sprint car points leader Greg Hodnett took advantage of a unique qualifying format to advance nine spots before the race event started and score the win in the 25-lap BAPS Night feature at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.
Hodnett advanced from a handicapped 11th starting spot to second after winning a series of match races for the top 12 qualifiers. His only loss was to polesitter Stevie Smith when he ran out of fuel in the final match race.
“Yes, we did run out of fuel on the last match race,” confirmed Hodnett upon exiting the Mike Heffner Lelands.com/Trone Outdoor Adverting #27 in victory lane, “We just didn’t think we’d make it that far (through the challenge races), and we had 20 gallons in it. We ran 20 or 25 laps and it just wasn’t enough.”
Despite losing to Smith in the final match race, Hodnett still started beside him for the start of the feature. Smith grabbed the lead at the outset and had a 1.72-second lead when he and Hodnett entered lapped traffic at the mid-point of the race.
Hodnett made the race-winning pass on lap 16, crossing .72 seconds ahead of Smith at the finish.
“We were a little tight in the beginning with a full load of fuel, and I figured I’d just hang out and work it out to where I could run my race and let things happen. We got back into traffic and my car was pretty maneuverable, and we were able to do what we needed to do.”
Hodnett’s $5,000 payday (including $1,800 from BAPS) was the 31st of his Lincoln career, moving him into sole possession of 10th on the all-time Lincoln win list.
Third through fifth were Chase Dietz, seventh-starting Billy Dietrich, and eighth-starting Alan Krimes. Completing the top ten were Gerard McIntyre, Jr., Brent Marks, Freddie Rahmer, Steve Owings, and Robbie Kendall.
“Thanks to everybody for being here tonight. I know it was very questionable weather, but we really appreciate everyone coming out. Thankfully, we got the race in. We were debating on whether or not to come up…if they’d even be able to try. But Fred Putney always does a great job with the track under any circumstances, and he came through for us tonight and made it happen.“
Heats for the 33 410 sprinters on hand were won by Brian Montieth, Freddie Rahmer, Marks, and Owings, with Lucas Wolfe winning the consolation.
Tim Glatfelter was transported to the hospital for a check-up after flipping hard on the front stretch during his heat. Car owner John Trone said that Glatfelter sustained a possible concussion and arm injury in the crash.
York’s Dalton Dietrich scored his first career win in the 20-lap ”358” sprint car feature. Dietrich started outside polesitter Chris Frank, grabbed the lead entering the first turn, and led every lap.
Frank scored his best-ever Lincoln finish in second, with seventh-starting Jeff Halligan crossing third. Rounding out the top five were Brent Shearer and Ryan Higgins.
Heats for the 28 358 sprinters on hand were won by Jeff Rohrbaugh, Kevin Nouse, and Higgins, with Cody Fletcher winning the consolation.
Former Lincoln thundercar driver Fred Cullum outdueled Bryan Green in a race-long battle to claim the win in the 20-lap All-American Outlaw feature.
Green actually sneaked in front Cullum as the two raced through lapped traffic in turns one and two at the mid-way point, but Cullum reclaimed the lead before the lap was in the books.
Third behind Cullum and Green at the finish was Fred’s son Justin Cullum. Heats for the 13 All American Outlaws on hand were won by Brad Alexander and Fred Cullum.
This coming Wednesday night, May 18th, the World of Outlaws come to Lincoln Speedway to take on the Pennsylvania Posse in the “Gettysburg Clash”. Time trials get underway at 7:30 PM, with pit gates opening at 3:30 PM, advance ticket holders 3:45 PM, and general admission at 4 PM. Lincoln Speedway will then be dark next Saturday night, May 21st.

LANCE DEWEASE TUNES-UP FOR NEXT WEEK’S WORLD OF OUTLAWS VISIT WITH DOMINATING WILLIAMS GROVE WIN FRIDAY NIGHT

MECHANICSBURG, PA – Lance Dewease and Donnie Kreitz have both beaten the World of Outlaws at Williams Grove Speedway during their careers.

Could they do it as a team next weekend?

Dewease, of Fayetteville, drove Kreitz’s car to a dominating win Friday night at Williams Grove in a tune-up event for next weekend’s race.

The Craftsman World of Outlaws will be at Williams Grove next Friday and Saturday night for the Morgan Cup Weekend.

His win was worth $4,000, it was his 82nd career Grove win –second all-time – and first of the season.

Lucas Wolfe started on the pole and grabbed the lead over second starter Greg Hodnett and third starter Danny Dietrich.

Fifth starter Dewease drove by Aaron Ott and into fourth and nearly passed Dietrich for third off turn two.

The only yellow flag of the race flew with three laps completed for Rodney Westhafer in turn three.

From there, it was Dewease’s show.

Dewease and Dietrich raced hard again for third nearly making contact on the frontstretch. Dewease checked-up and actually fell back a spot. Ott got by Dietrich and then Dewease would finally make the pass as well.

Dewease – a six-time track champion - drove back by Ott on the backstretch and then began to close on Wolfe and Hodnett. He would get under Hodnett entering turn one on lap 12 and made the same move by Wolfe to take the lead on the following lap. He streaked away from there.

“This thing runs anywhere you want it,” said Dewease. “I had problems in the heat race and barely made it back out for the dash. We weren’t very good, but Davey (Brown) knows how to make them go fast and made the right adjustments. The first 15 laps, this thing was really good.”

Dewease and Kreitz got together over the winter to run select shows.

“It’s a pleasure; it’s an honor,” said Dewease about driving for Kreitz. “When this opportunity came, I jumped at it. We’re off to a good start. Everything was good tonight. It has been one of the best racecars around forever.”

Dewease’s thoughts then turned to the car owners (Walt and Marsha Dyer) that gave him his big break in the sport in early 1990’s. “Marsha (Dyer) –we laid her to rest last Friday and I dedicate this win to her,” he said. “The whole family is here and I hope they stick around for a victory lane photo with me.”

After taking the lead, Dewease sliced through lapped traffic over the final 10 laps and beat Wolfe by 5.501 seconds at the checkers. Hodnett, Ott and Dietrich completed the top five. Cory Haas, TJ Stutts, Brent Marks, Alan Krimes, and Stevie Smith rounded out the top 10.

Stutts set fast time over the 27-car field with a lap of 16.603 with Hodnett, Dietrich, Wolfe and Ott completing the top five in qualifying. Heat races were won by Wolfe, Hodnett and Dietrich. Wolfe won the dash and Pat Cannon the B-main.

After a false start swapped the front two rows of the 358 Sprint car feature, Adrian Shaffer grabbed the lead from his second starting spot. Following a lap nine caution, he got pressure from Kevin Nouse for the top spot.

Shaffer began to pull back away from Nouse over the final laps and scored his second straight Grove win after winning the opener last month. The event was a Capital Renegade King of the 358 Sprints Series race. Nouse, Chris Arnold, Chandler Leiby and Glenndon Forsythe completed the top five.

Chad Trout, David Holbrook, Brie Hershey, Jordan Givler and Nyle Berkes rounded out the top 10.

Heat races for the 358 Sprints were won by Nyle Berkes, Chandler Leiby and Kevin Nouse.

Extra $ Posted For 410 And 358 Sprints In Port Royal Three-Day Weikert Memorial Races

$200 Hard Chargers, Guaranteed Starting Spots And 358 Sprint Bonuses Offered

5/8/16

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – The upcoming three-day Bob Weikert Memorial sprint car spectacular at Port Royal Speedway on May 28, 29 and 30 has already been established as the richest “event” in the history of the track by virtue of its posted total of $110,000 in purse money for all divisions.

But even more money is on the line in different ways for some of the weekend competitors.

In all three of the Weikert Memorial 410 sprint events, a $200 Hard Charger Award will be handed out for the driver that advances the most positions from his original starting position.

And for the Hard Charger in both the Saturday and Sunday mains, that award will also be worth at least the posted money to start the next day’s event as the Hard Charger will earn a guaranteed starting spot for the following night’s feature.

That means for Saturday’s Hard Charger, the award will be worth the posted $200 plus a minimum of $500 to start the Sunday main. And Sunday’s Hard Charger will again get the posted $200 plus the minimum of start money on Monday valued at $350.

In addition, Sunday’s fast timer in qualifications will be able to earn $100 for quick time as posted by Packer’s Concessions.

Plus, tow money for all 410-sprint non-qualifiers in each of the three programs is also up for grabs in the amount of $100

For the URC 360 sprint portion of the Sunday Weikert Memorial weekend program, the 25-lap feature will pay $2,000 to win and $200 to start but a bonus has been posted for any 358 sprints that choose to compete.

The top three finishing 358 sprints in Sunday’s feature will be gain bonuses of $300, $200 and $100 respectively.

The 2016 Weikert Memorial 410 sprints will compete in the now traditional Fallen Heroes Championship on Saturday, May 28 featuring a 30-lap main paying $5,000 to win and $400 to start.

Passing points awarded from qualifying events will be used to align the main event starting grid.

The super late models will race in a 25-lap Fallen Heroes Championship as well on May 28, paying $2,000 to win and $200 to start.

Action then swings to Sunday night, May 29 when the Weikert Memorial sprints spin off time trials to set heat grids before moving on to a 35-lap feature paying a whopping $10,000 to win and $500 just to start.

And after Sunday, less than a day later, the whole weekend of sprint car mania culminates with an afternoon program for the Weikert Memorial sprints paying a minimum of $4,000 to win in a 25-lap main.

And after the dust settles, the three-day Weikert Memorial Champion will be crowned and a five-position point fund worth nearly $9,000 will be paid out with the title holder himself going home with $3,000.

In the event of only two events being completed due to weather, a two-day point fund worth more than $6,000 will be distributed.

SUNDAY M,AY 8, 2016 SUSQUEHANNA SPEEDWAY RACE RESULTS

LANCE DEWEASE TAKES KEVIN GOBRECHT CLASSIC WIN Chad Trout Earns 358 Sprint Car Win

By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway YORK HAVEN, PA 5/8/16

After coming up just short in the opener of the BAPS Coatings and Supplies 410 Sprint Series back in April, Lance Dewease turned the tables on Greg Hodnett Sunday night at Susquehanna Speedway.

Dewease drove around Hodnett on the 22nd lap and went onto score the win in the inaugural Hessiron.com Kevin Gobrecht Classic presented by Brickers Famous French Fries.

Aboard the Don Kreitz, Jr owned #69K, Dewease was fast all night, setting quick time over the 36-car field in time trials with a lap of 14.208 seconds then scoring the win in his heat race.

“I’m having a lot of fun,” the Fayetteville driver stated in victory lane after earning the $4,000 payday. “This is something way different than I’ve done my whole racing career. Donnie, Davey (Brown) and the whole crew are great. Before the races tonight, we were sitting there reminiscing about races that me and Donnie raced together and that’s what its all about. The last couple years have been down years and I’m real happy with what I’m doing this year.”

By virtue of his dash win, Hodnett, the winner of the April 10th BAPS 410 Sprint Series race at Susquehanna grabbed the early lead over Steve Buckwalter in the 30-lap Gobrecht Classic.

Hodnett drove away from the field during the early laps and had a near three second lead wiped out on lap seven when Cory Haas stopped on the track to bring out a caution.

Hodnett again opened up a lead following the restart as Dewease, who started fourth on the grid was looking for ways to get around Buckwalter for the runner-up spot.

Just past the mid-way mark of the race, Hodnett changed lines on the track which allowed Buckwalter and Dewease to close dramatically and once Dewease disposed of Buckwalter with 20 laps complete, he went after Hodnett and drove around the middle of turns three and four to take the lead with 22 laps in the books.

Hodnett faded after losing the lead but closed to within two car lengths of the leader on the final lap before Danny Dietrich’s flip in turn two brought out a red flag.

Dewease wasn’t to be denied the win, holding Hodnett off in the one lap shootout to take his first win since joining the team.

“I was trying to bid my time out there because I knew the longer we’d run the better we’d get,” stated the winner. “I was searching around for different lines , I found the middle then three quarters to the top you could really starting eating those guys up. We couldn’t run the bottom tonight. We pushed too hard off the corner and it just killed my momentum. I move up a couple of times and didn’t real special up there and I moved down a little bit and felt better. If you can shorten the race track up from where those guys are, you’ll be alright.”

Hodnett settled for the runner-up finish ahead of ninth starting Brent Marks, Aaron Ott and Buckwalter with Ryan Smith, Lucas Wolfe, Tim Shaffer, Bill Dietrich and Rodney Westhafer completing the top 10.

Dewease, R. Smith, Hodnett and Ott were heat race winners. The B-Main was won by Mike Bittinger.

Dover’s Chad Trout took the lead from Jordan Givler with five laps in and held off the late race challenges of Doug Hammaker and Kevin Nouse to win the 20-lap 358 Sprint car feature.

Following the top three were Givler, Dwight Leppo, Brent Shearer, Adrian Shaffer, jared Esh, Glenndon Forsythe and Dalton Dietrich.

Heats for the 30 358 Sprints were won by Forsythe, Esh and Chris Frank. Steve Drevicki won the consolation.

Susquehanna Speedway returns to action Saturday, May 14th on Tyson Fence Night as the Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman return to the track joined by the second Precise Racing Series event for the 358 Late Models and the Xtreme Stocks .Pits open at 4PM with grandstands opening at 5PM and Racing beginning at 7PM.

Time trials, heat races, a dash and a 25-lap feature paying $4,000 to win will take place in the tune up event.

Friday’ s show will be the second of the season in the Williams Grove Diamond Series for the 410 sprints.

Adult general admission for the show is $15 with youth ages 13 – 20 admitted for $10. Kids ages 12 and under are always admitted for free at Williams Grove Speedway.

The Williams Grove portion of the 50/50 ticket sales this week will be donated to Kickin It For Kids, a Cumberland County organization that works with local schools to help families with school age children when they run into financial issues so that the child doesn't have to change or miss school.

And then slated for May 20 and 21 at Williams Grove, it will be the 2016 World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series, with action taking place both Friday and Saturday evening at 7:30 pm for the Morgan Cup presented by NAPA/NGK Spark Plugs weekend.

Friday’s show will feature a Posse/Outlaws showdown going 25 laps in distance, paying $8,000 to the winner with the Saturday main stretched out to 30 laps with a healthy $17,000 posted to win that includes $5,000 earmarked as the Morgan Cup presented by NAPA/NGK Spark Plugs.

Saturday’s show will indeed offer the 2016 Morgan Cup itself, offering $5,000 of the posted $17,000 winner’s share to the feature victor in honor of late Williams Grove owner Mr. Morgan Hughes.

Cup bragging rights will go home for another season, either to the home of the PA Posse, at Williams Grove offices in Mechanicsburg, or to the corporate home of the World of Outlaws located in Concord, NC.

JAREMI HANSON SCORES SUSQUEHANNA 305 SPRINT VICTORY

 Gene Knaub Scores in Late Models while Boozel and Minnich also win

By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway YORK HAVEN, PA 5/8/16

Jaremi Hanson led flag to flag to capture his first win of the season in Saturday nighr’s 25-lap PASS/IMCA 305 Sprint car feature at Susquehanna Speedway.

The New Oxford racer started on the pole aboard the Ryan Slothower Motorsports #14 and never looked back in taking the win.

Zach Newlin rode home in the runner-up spot while Jared Esh put on a passing clinic after starting 24th and racing home in the third position ahead of Ken Duke, Jr., and Ryan Stillwaggon.

Completing the top 10 finishers were Billy Ney, Stephanie Dodson, Scott Lutz, John Martin and Cody Hackenberry.

Heats for the 29 305 Sprint cars were won by Newlin, Geoff Gill and Hanson. There was no consolation.

Gene Knaub was in the right place at the right time when race-long leader Chase Billet’s race car went up in smoke with 23 laps complete in the 25-lap 358 late model feature. Knaub, who had started 13th took over and led the final two laps to score his second win of the season at the track.

Following the Dover driver under the checkers were Charlie Potts, Ben Whittaker, Matt Nailor and Cameron Benyou with Jake Jones, Matt Murphy, Kyle Lear, Daulton Bigler and Sam Gallagher rounding out the top 10 finishers.

Thirty-four late models signed in for action with heat races going to Randy Stoudt (who scratched from the feature), Cody Kershner, Whittaker and Travis Mease. The consolation was won by Alan Sagi.

Eric Boozel led all 15 laps of the Road Warrior feature to become the third winner in as many events this season. He took the win over Christopher Anderson, 10th starting Tim O’Sheehan, Daryl Sipe and Travis Brown.

Anderson, O’Sheehan and Boozel won heats for the 27 Road Warriors.

Randy Minnich led the final two laps of the PENMAR Vintage Car feature to take that win over early leader Glenn Pobletts, Aaron Brommer, Gene Wrightstone and Scott Rickrode.

Susquehanna Speedway returns to action Saturday, May 14th on Tyson Fence Night as the Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman return to the track joined by the second Precise Racing Series event for the 358 Late Models and the Xtreme Stocks .Pits open at 4PM with grandstands opening at 5PM and Racing beginning at 7PM.

NAPA AUTO PARTS THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES

MS. MOTORSPORTS ARYNNE MOODY TO SING NATIONAL ANTHEM AT THUNDER SERIES OPENER, SUNDAY, MAY 29 AT GRANDVIEW

TRIPLE THUNDER THIRLLER PROGRAM TO INCLUDE BIG BLOCK VS 358 MODIFIEDS, SPORTSMAN & TSRS SPRINTS 7:30 PM

Ms. Motorsports Arynne Moody of Etters, PA will be part of the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series open set for Sunday, May 29. This Triple Thunder Thriller event, presented by Pioneer Pole Buildings will find the Big Block Modifieds challenge the weekly 358 Modifieds in a 40 lap main event that will pay $5,000 to the winner, $1,000 for tenth and a hefty $500 payoff just to start the main event.

As an added treat, the talented Ms. Motorsports will also sing the National Anthem in a salute to the red, white and blue on this Memorial Day weekend.

This big racing event will also find the Sportsman and the TSRS Sprints on the card competing in a series of heat race qualifying all leading up to the Triple Thunder Thriller “big 3” feature events. Craig VonDohren, Duane Howard, Jeff Strunk, Billy Pauch Jr, Ryan Watt and Rick Laubach are just a few drivers eyeing the $5,000 payoff. Gates will open at 5 PM with race time set for 7:30 PM.

The popular 2016 Thunder Series schedule has a lot to offer this year including the return of the USAC Non-Wing Sprints in the 10th Annual Eastern Storm. This year, the 358 NASCAR Modifieds will do double-duty with USAC on Tuesday night, June 7. If you have never seen the USAC Non-Wing Sprints at Grandview, this is a “must see” event. Some say watching the USAC time trials along is worth the price of admission. In any case, the norm for the USAC Non-Wing Sprints is plenty of side-by-side racing, numerous slide jobs, some wheelies, a little wheel banging and a bounce or two off the outside wall. So, if you are accustomed to single file races or winners from the pole, you will not see that type of show at Grandview Speedway on Tuesday night, June 7.

The Thunder on the Hill Racing Series mainstay activities and promotions, providing fun for the fans with elements such as: Pre-Race Pit Tours, the Inside/Out Experience - where fans can sign-up to watch hot laps from the infield, the Low Down & Dirty Radio Show pre-race Meet & Greet, JOE "THE PIZZA DUDE", giveaways, fireworks, and appearances by the Thunder Girls will all be part of the coming season, plus a few added surprises presented by GALCO Business Communications and Quaker Steak & Lube restaurants.

KYLE MOODY HOLDS OFF KENDALL FOR SECOND CAREER LINCOLN 410 SPRINT CAR WIN;

Rohrbaugh first repeat winner in 358 sprints; Ryan Smith best of 29-car street stock field

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 5/7/2016 – Things finally fell into place for Lewisberry’s Kyle Moody Saturday night, resulting his second career win in the “410” sprint feature at Lincoln Speedway.

“This season we have a new (Maxim) race car and had some motor issues early on,” said Moody upon exiting his Dynatech Controls/ISSC #99M in victory lane, “It’s funny, earlier in the night I told a couple people that in prior weeks, we’ve been building a notebook. But when the night hits and this thing’s fast, it will all come together in one night.”

Handicapping placed Moody fourth for the start. He was second behind polesitter Frankie Herr (subbing for Nicole Bower) by end of the first lap, and then slid under Herr to grab the race lead exiting turn two of lap five. From there, he drove out to a two and-a-half second lead by the time the first caution flag waved for Mike Bittinger, who came to a stop in turn three of lap 15.

Fifth-starting Robbie Kendall and eighth-starting Austin Hogue were second and third for the restart.

“I did see Kendall and Hogue behind me, and I know those guys are just as quick on any given night, so I tried to mix up my restarts,” commented Moody in the two cautions and one red flag over the remainder of the race, “Luckily, the restarts held up and we’re here.”

The red flag started as a caution, but racing was stopped to make sure Tim Glatfelter was okay after being shaken up after striking the inside guardrail on the front stretch of lap 20.

On the final restart, 17th-starting Brian Montieth passed Hogue for third place, and stayed there until the checkered flew, with Moody’s margin of victory over Kendall at 2.16 seconds.

“This was my type of race track tonight,” said Moody, “I love a heavy race track like this. It was just fun out there.”

Completing the top five were Hogue and Shane Hoff, with Billy Dietrich, 15th-starting Alan Krimes, Glenndon Forsythe, Scott Fisher, and Adam Wilt rounding out the top ten.

Heats for the 28 410 sprinters on hand were won by Kendall, Hoff, and Danny Dietrich, with Gerard McIntyre, Jr. winning the consolation.

Jeff Rohrbaugh became the first sprint car repeat winner of the year at Lincoln and claimed his division-leading 15th career win in the 20-lap “358” sprint car feature.

Rohrbaugh started tenth and inherited the lead when polesitter Kody Hartlaub slowed to a stop on the backstretch on lap six. From there, he held off the challenges of 12th-starting Matt Campbell and ninth-starting Jeff Halligan for the win.

Defending Lincoln champ Doug Hammaker came from 17th-starting spot to cross fourth, with Chandler Leiby fifth. Completing the top ten were Dalton Dietrich (best Lincoln career finish), Chris Arnold, Adrian Shaffer, Brent Shearer (who came back through the field after a fourth-lap spin), and Cody Fletcher.

Heats for the 25 358 sprinters on hand were won by Shearer, Shaffer, and Ryan Higgins.

Ryan Smith fulfilled a life-long dream by scoring the win in the 20-lap street stock feature.

Smith started fourth and took the lead from Jimmy Combs down the back stretch of lap eight. He led the rest of the way, with Chad Stine coming from 13th-starting spot to finish second.

Jim Palm, Jr., Josh Bloom, and Eddie Richards completed the top five.

Heats for the 26 street stock were won by Richards (who drew an inversion pill of 12 for the feature), Wayne Dutterer, and Chris Derr.

Next weekend, Saturday, May 14th, it will be BAPS NIGHT featuring the 410 Sprinters going after $5,000-to-win courtesy of BAPS plus 2-lap Challenge races to determine the top 12 starting positions for the feature. 358 Sprints and All-American Outlaws round out the auto racing portion of the show. It will also be the first race of the year for the York Flooring KIDS BIG WHEEL RACES. Racing gets underway at 7:30 PM, with gates opening at 5:30 PM.

Hodnett Soars Through Stout Port Royal Sprint Field For Win No. 45, Hollenbeck Earns Long Awaited Late Model Victory

Devin Hart and Pete Leister claim companion stock car mains, 105 cars pack track pits

5/7/16

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Greg Hodnett soared through the field at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night to notch his 45th career sprint car win at the oval after defeating a stout field from the ninth starting position.

Chad Hollenbeck of Montrose drove to victory in the super late model main, finally getting his first career win at the oval after years of trying.

Local driver Devin Hart took the victory in the econo late model feature while another local, Pete Leister picked up the checkers in the xtreme stock feature event.

A total of 105 cars including 36 410-sprints and 37 super late models packed the pits for at big night of racing at Port Royal and the main events didn’t disappoint.

Polesitter Lucas Wolfe jumped into the lead at the start of the 25-lap sprint car main with Mike Wagner racing second.

But by lap three, sixth starter Aaron Ott was in the picture up to third with Hodnett running sixth.

The races first caution flag unfurled with five laps away, finding Hodnett in fifth behind invader AJ Flick of Apollo.

Ott pounced on Wagner when action resumed with Hodnett motoring into fourth and then into third on the seventh tour, getting around Wagner for the spot.

Wolfe entered the rear of the field with 10 laps down and traffic closed up the advantage that Wolfe had built over the field.

Hodnett was surging at the mid point of the race, knifing through the traffic to blast to Ott’s outside in the fourth corner for second as the field raced to complete lap 12 and then after crossing over on the frontstretch as the lap got scored, Hodnett dove under Wolfe as the pair set their cars into the first turn to take the lead.

Hodnett had Wolfe, Ott and Doug Esh following when another caution flag regrouped the field with 10 laps to go.

Ott took a look at Hodnett at the new green but it took until lapped traffic with less than five laps to go for a massive battle for the lead to develop.

Getting blocked out by a pair of cars racing for position in front of him, Hodnett had nowhere to go as he tried to hold the lead and it was then that Ott drove to his inside in the second corner to make a bid for control as Esh took an outside route to do the same.

Both Ott and Esh were all over the leader as he shot onto the backstretch with a narrow advantage with two to go but just then a final yellow unfurled for a stopped Mike Wagner, ruining the match-up for the win.

Hodnett then jetted away over the final two circuits to pick up his victory, the third of the season for him at Port Royal which tied him with Pete Swarmer on the track all-time sprint car win list.

Hodnett took the win by 1.730 seconds over Ott with Esh, Wolfe and Mark Smith in the top five.

Sixth through 10th went to Brock Zearfoss, Ryan Smith, Ryan Taylor, Steve Buckwalter and Af Flick.

Heats went to Esh, Taylor, Hodnett and Smith while Justin Barger took the consolation. Hodnett set fast time with a lap of 16.500 in time trials.

A royal battle took place in the 22-lap super late model main with Hollenbeck leading all circuits but not before some tense moments in a contest for the win.

Tim Smith Jr. followed Hollenbeck for the first six laps before Kenny Moreland of Waldorf, Md., drove into second.

Coleby Frye blasted into third with a massive slide job on the ninth circuit and began his pursuit of the leaders as they entered the backmarkers on the 12th tour.

Moreland was breathing down Hollenbeck’s neck with five laps to go and Yoder now up to third and that’s when Hollenbeck again nearly lost his first career victory at the track.

Driving somewhat defensively with two to go, Hollenbeck slammed the door shut of Moreland as the pair sped through the third and fourth turns and that’s when Moreland made contact with Hollenbeck, turning him sideways.

But somehow Hollenbeck righted the car and Moreland backpedaled just enough to keep from plowing into him while allowing Hollenbeck to keep the lead while both drivers regained their composure with a quickening Dylan Yoder on their tail.

In the end, Hollenbeck took the victory by .548 seconds over Yoder, who got by Moreland at the finish.

Frye was fourth with Jim Yoder in fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Jeff Rine, Scott Palmer, Matt Parks, Tim Smith Jr., and Devin Friese.

Heats went to Smith, Hollenbeck, Frye and Moreland with Jeff Miller getting the consolation race. Dylan Yoder set quick time with a lap of 19.922

Harold Ranck led the first three laps of the econo late model main before contact put him into the frontstretch wall while the lead went to Tim Fedder.

However Fedder would only lead one lap before Devin Hart blistered into the lead and drove away for the victory.

It was Hart’s second career win in the division, coming over Tim Krape, Tim Fedder, Shaun Miller and Steve Lowery.

Twin heats went to Hart and Shaun Miller.

Pete Leister held sway for all 15 laps of the xtreme stock feature, chased early by Jason Zook and then late in the event by Bill Powell.

Powell finished second followed by Deron Henry, Mike Goodwin and Austin Johnson.

PACK THE TRACK POSTPONED DUE TO TRACK CONDITIONS; PRO STOCK 20, DOUBLE LATE MODEL FEATURES & 360 SPRINTS ON MAY 14 RACING CARD

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Selinsgrove Speedway officials postponed tonight’s PEPSI “Pack The Track” racing program due to extremely wet and unsuitable track conditions following four days of rain in the area. The cancellation was announced at 2:30 p.m. after the track crew worked on trouble spots to no avail.

“The decision to not race was out of safety for the drivers and everyone involved,” said general manager Steve Inch. “At 2:30 we were still not seeing the progress with the race track surface that was needed. We made the announcement early enough in the day to let teams and fans know who were traveling from outside of the area.”

The popular “Pack The Track” promotion will be rescheduled this season.

Selinsgrove Speedway will return to racing action at 7 p.m. Saturday, May 14, with the 15th annual A&A Auto Stores Pro Stock 20 plus double late model features (including the April 30 postponed race), 360 sprint cars, and roadrunners. Track gates will open at 5 p.m.

The Pro Stock 20 is the division’s annual 20-lap championship race paying $1,000 to win.

Selinsgrove Raceway Park, the one-fifth mile track located inside of Selinsgrove Speedway’s half-mile oval, will present a complete program of go kart and 125 micro sprint car racing at 7 p.m. Friday, May 13. Track gates will open at 5:30 p.m.

USAC NON-WING SPRINTS & THE EASTERN STORM TO KICKOFF AT GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY TUESDAY NIGHT, JUNE 7

There is a storm heading our way in early June, the AMSOIL Non-Wing Sprints Eastern Storm will make its tenth swing to Pennsylvania and New Jersey with opening night set for the Grandview Speedway on Tuesday night, June 7. The one-third mile high banked Grandview Speedway is the perfect venue for these non-wing 410 sprint cars. Three abreast racing, a few slide jobs, a wheelie or two and an occasional bounce off the outside guardrail is just the norm when the non-wing warriors invade the hill. The Tuesday, June 7 USAC sprint show will be part of the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series and the popular 358 Modifieds will be part of the wildly popular double header program.

Time trials for the USAC non-wing sprints will open the June 7 program. Some say the USAC time trials are worth the price of admission. Heat race qualifying will take place for the USAC sprints as well as the 358 Modifieds leading up to the 40 lap $6,000 to win Jesse Hockett Classic as the 358 Modifieds battle for $3,000 to win in a 30 lap feature. Gates open at 5 PM with race time set for 7:30 PM.

Wednesday night, June 8 it’s off to the Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, PA where it is all about “rub rails and rooster tails” as USAC and the 358 Sprints team-up for big double header of wing and non-wing sprint cars. Along with qualifying for both divisions, the 358 Sprint will battle in a 20 lap feature event paying $1,000 to win and $150 to take the green. This is a full points event for the 358 Sprints. The USAC Sprints will chase $6,000 to win in the 30 lap feature followed by a second USAC feature that will go 25 laps paying $3,000 to win. One USAC driver could possibly earn $9,000. The make-up feature should be a crowd please as the line-up will be determined by inverting the finish from the 30 lap feature. Gates open at 5 PM with qualifying getting underway at 7 PM for the three feature race card.

The AMSOIL Eastern Storm will move to the New Egypt Speedway on Thursday night, June 9. Friday night will be an off night for the series but they will return to action on Saturday night, June 11 at the Port Royal Speedway and close out the tour on Sunday night, June 12 at the Susquehanna Speedway in York Haven, PA.

May 28, 29 & 30 Port Royal Weikert Memorial Is Richest Event In Speedway History

Over $110,000 in total purse moneys on the line for all divisions!

5/1/16

The three-day total of all division purses and sprint car series point fund amounts to more than $110,000 slated to be paid out at the fabulous event.

This amazing dollar figure makes the Memorial Day holiday weekend program at Port Royal the most lucrative in the history of motorized racing at the facility dating back to 1938.

The three-day program for the 410 sprint cars will culminate on Monday afternoon when the Weikert Champion is crowned based on cumulative points accrued during the three-day event.

The weekend event is being run in honor of one of the greatest sprint car owners ever to be known across the nation and around the world, Mr. Bob Weikert of Fairfield.

The Weikert Memorial 410 sprints will compete in the now traditional Fallen Heroes Championship on Saturday, May 28 featuring a 30-lap main paying $5,000 to win and $400 to start.

Passing points awarded from qualifying events will be used to align the main event starting grid.

The super late models will race in a 25-lap Fallen Heroes Championship as well on May 28, paying $2,000 to win and $200 to start.

Action then swings to Sunday night, May 29 when the Weikert Memorial sprints spin off time trials to set heat grids before moving on to a 35-lap feature paying a whopping $10,000 to win and $500 just to start.

The URC Sprints will also be part of the Sunday program, competing in a 25-lap feature paying $2,000 to win and $200 to start.

Special bonuses of $300, $200 and $100 will be paid to the highest finishing 358 sprint cars that race in the URC main event.

And after Sunday, less than a day later, the whole weekend of sprint car mania culminates with an afternoon program for the Weikert Memorial sprints paying a minimum of $4,000 to win in a 25-lap main.

And after the dust settles, the three-day Weikert Memorial Champion will be crowned and a five-position point fund worth nearly $9,000 will be paid out with the title holder himself going home with $3,000.

In the event of only two events being completed due to weather, a two-day point fund worth more than $6,000 will be distributed.

All three events have a posted $200 Hard Charger Award up for grabs with the Saturday and Sunday Hard Charger earning a guaranteed starting spot in the following days main event.

Tow money for all 410-sprint non-qualifiers in each program is also up for grabs in the amount of $100.

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY

30 April 2016 By Michael Batz

SMITH WINS RAIN-SHORTENED SPRINT CAR GUNN MEMORIAL; MITCH POWERS TO FIRST PRO STOCK VICTORY OF SEASON; LATE MODEL MAKEUP FEATURE ADDED TO MAY 7 “PACK THE TRACK”

SELINSGROVE, Pa. - On the night of the 36th annual Jack Gunn Memorial there were two races going on at Selinsgrove Speedway. One race was on the track and the other was against mother nature and an impending storm Saturday evening.

Although the racing was fast paced all night and moved along quickly, mother nature still got the best of the 30-lap Gunn Memorial. The race was past halfway and considered complete on lap 18 with Mark Smith of Sunbury declared the winner for the second year in a row in the $2,200-to-win event. Brad Mitch of McClure also grabbed a Pro Stock win in the division’s 15-lap main before the rains came.

Robbie Stillwagon of Burlington, N.J., started the night off with the Fast Tees Fast Time Award (17.499) over the 28-car field for the Newville Family of Companies 360 Sprint Cars which were joined by the United Racing Club.

Rains hit before the Jeff’s Auto Body & Recycling Center Super Late Model feature was held. The makeup feature will be run during the May 7 “Pack the Track” night. Chad Hollenbeck, Tony Adams, and Coleby Frye won the heat races for the stout 27-car Late Model field.

The Roadrunner feature was also postponed to a later date to be announced.

This coming Saturday, May 7, will be the annual PEPSI “Pack the Track” night featuring $5 General Admission for all adults and students. Kids 11 years of age and younger will be admitted FREE. The May 7 racing card will include a full program of 360 Sprint Cars, Pro Stocks, Roadrunners and two late model features. Gates will open at 5 p.m. with racing at 7 p.m.

Once heat races and a B-main were completed the Sprint Car feature line up was set with Mark Smith bringing the field to the green flag as the defending winner of the race. A strong start for fourth-place starter Josh Weller shot him into the race lead. A lap six caution flag gave Smith a chance to regroup and take a shot to regain the top spot. By the time the field returned to the flag stand for lap seven Smith was again showing the way while being chased by Weller.

On lap 12 Smith began to work into lapped traffic and that allowed Weller to begin to close up the gap along with TJ Stutts. Stutts was all over Weller when the yellow flag flew again on lap 17 for Curt Michael slowing with a flat tire. The yellow was good for Smith again giving him the open track.

Stutts was on Weller when the green flew again allowing Smith to get away a little bit before the yellow was displayed for the final time. Jim Shuster was slowing on the backstretch as the rain began to fall on the speedway. Drivers gave officials the sign that the racing surface was not what it needed to be for them to compete any further and they were sent to the pits and the race was called official soon after.

The win is Smith’s 16th career victory at the speedway in 358-360 Sprint Car racing and his seventh in a URC sanctioned event at the track dating back to 2012. Weller came home in second followed by Stutts, Ryan Kissinger from the 13th starting spot, and Robbie Stillwagon. Jason Shultz, Cody Keller, Nate Snyder, Ed Aiken, and John Braim were the top ten in the rain-shortened event.

Joe Trenca, Josh Weller, Tj Stutts won the heat races with Colby Womer winning the B main.

Brad Mitch was on a mission to grab his 20th career Selinsgrove Speedway victory and he did just that in the A&A Auto Stores Pro Stock feature event. Mitch led early over opening night winner Andrew Shoop before Shoop went pitside with an issue. Kurt Wray became the runner up and put a ton of pressure on Mitch before he too had an issue that sidelined his car.

Brandon Moser kept Mitch honest the rest of the race by staying on his rear bumper, but was not able to complete the pass and had to settle for second. Matt Wilson, Curtis Lawton, and Jeff Ceballo rounded out the top five. Mitch and Shoop won heat races for the Pro Stocks.

SATURDAY, APRIL 30, 2016 SUSQUEHANNA SPEEDWAY RACE RESULTS

PAUL MILLER VISITS SUSQUEHANNA SPEEDWAY VICTORY LANE WITH SPORTSMAN WIN Brendon Bright, Alex Updegraff and Travis Brown also score feature wins

By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway YORK HAVEN, PA 4/30/16

With rain imminent at any time, Susquehanna Speedway pressed forward with Saturday night’s racing program and was the only track in the area to complete its entire show before Mother Nature set in.

After back to back top 10 finishes, Fawn Grove racer Paul Miller parked his family owned machine in victory lane after topping the 25-lap Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman feature.

Nicknamed “The Show,” Miller lined up sixth on the grid and arrived to challenge early race leader Troy Rhome by taking the top spot with 11 laps complete.

However, that lead would be shortlived as Rhome raced back around Miller on lap 14 to retake the top spot.

Not to be denied the win, Miller went back out front on lap 16 and never looked back, despite a lap 22 caution that bunched the field on his bumper.

Miller’s second career Susquehanna win came aboard the Miller & Sons, Inc., KramerKraft No. 58.

Defending Super Sportsman champ Frankie Herr, of Carlisle came from 11th to finish in the runner-up spot ahead of Halifax driver Mike Enders, 10th starting Rich Eichelberger of Dillsburg and current track point leader Russ Mitten of Newville. Mitten earned the Hard Charger after starting 22nd.

Doug Dodson came home sixth after starting 20th ahead of Rhome, Davey Walsh, Jay Fannasy and Bruce Buckwalter, Jr.

Heats for the 27 Super Sportsman were won by Steve Wilbur, Tom Wyckoff, and Herr with two time winner Gregg Foster topping the consolation.

The ARDC Midgets made their second appearance of the season and it was Brendon Bright scoring back to back wins in the 20-lap feature.

Bright took the lead on lap eight from Ryan Greth and drove to the win ahead of Greth, Brett Arndt, Alex Bright and Tommy Kunsman.

Danny Stratton and Ryan Wilson were heat winners for the 20 ARDC Midgets.

Alex Updegraff picked up his first win of the season in the 20-lap Extreme Stock car feature as he came from his fifth starting spot to take the lead with 10 laps complete. He took the win over Kyle Emig, Michael Smith, Kirby Sites and Ronnie Buck.

Johnny Palm and Updegraff were heat winners for the 20 Xtreme Stocks.

Only one caution slowed Travis Brown’s drive to victory lane in the 15-lap Road Warrior feature as he led the final four laps in his first win this season over Daryl Sipe, early race leader Robert Wellman, opening week winner Tim O’Sheehan and Christopher Anderson.

O’Sheehan and Wellman picked up heat race wins as 20 Road Warriors signed in for competition.

Susquehanna Speedway kicks off the month of May with a big doubleheader event beginning with a Saturday night, May 7 program of PASS/IMCA Sprints, 358 Late Models, Road Warriors and PenMar Vintage Cars. Pits open at 4PM with grandstands opening at 5PM and racing beginning at 7PM.

Then on Sunday night, it will be the second of seven BAPS Coatings and Supplies 410 Sprint Series events as the Hessiron.com Kevin Gobrecht Classic presented by Bricker’s Famous French Fries will headline the May 8 event on Mothers Day.. Joining the 410 Sprints will be the 358 sprint cars. Gates open at 4PM with racing slated for 7PM. Check out the separate press release for all of the information regarding this special event.

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

Heimbach Wins Bizarre Port Royal Sprint Main, Friese Gets Rain-Shortened Late Models

305 sprints to make up feature May 14

4/30/16

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Blane Heimbach of Selinsgrove won what was a bizarre sprint car feature on Saturday night at Port Royal Speedway, scoring the 11th oval victory of his career worth $3,200.

Devin Friese also proved victorious at Port Royal on Saturday, picking up the win in the rain-shortened super late model main with 20 laps completed.

Everett’s Wayne Dadetto blasted into the lead at the start of the 25-lap 410 sprint car main, holding control over polesitter Curt Stroup.

Logan Wagner started fourth in the field and got around Stroup for second on the second tour but Wagner wasn’t really able to run down the advantage between himself and Dadetto as the leader hit the backmarkers at the halfway point, holding a two second lead.

But past the halfway point, Dadetto started abruptly changing lanes around the speedway, forsaking the fast line that was working for him, instead choosing to run the bottom while at the same time eighth starter Doug Esh rolled into third spot.

Dadetto’s bid for a first-ever sprint car win went up in flames literally with 16 laps completed when he blew the motor on his mount at the end of the backchute, bringing out a red flag.

After clearing the track and cleaning the half-lap oil slick put down by the former leader, Logan Wagner assumed the lead however before action could resume, he pulled off the track with a flat tire, thus giving the lead to Esh for the restart.

Esh had Stroup following with Ryan Taylor third when the green reappeared and Stroup flexed a lot of muscle for the lead, driving underneath Esh for the lead for the next two laps before Esh suddenly blew a tire and backed hard into the outside third turn fence.

And with that, Richfield’s Stroup was the new leader with Ryan Taylor in second and now seventh starter Heimbach in third.

Heimbach powered around Taylor on the restart and then closed on leader Stroup.

The power that Stroup had shown a few laps earlier seemed to suddenly fail him with five laps to go as Heimbach made good time around the top side to blast into the lead with four laps to go to run to the win.

Stroup fell victim to Ryan Taylor in the last laps with Heimbach taking the win over Taylor by 1.316 seconds.

Stroup was third followed by Mike Wagner and Brock Zearfoss.

Sixth through 10th went to Aaron Ott,. Dylan Cisney, Kody Lehman, Darly Stimeling and Rodney Westhafer.

Heats went to Joey Hershey and Taylor.

Devin Friese took his pole position to the win in what was to be the 22-lap super late model main however rains with two laps to go cut the event short.

Friese raced with Tim Smith Jr. in second until Trent Brenneman took over the spot and began keeping pace with the leader.

Brenneman found point leader Andy Haus trailing him for a restart on the tenth lap but for the next six circuits Brenneman applied pressure for the lead, powering underneath Friese at one point only to see Friese hold command at the stripe.

In a quest for a first ever win, Brenneman fell victim to a flat tire on lap 16, handing over second to Billy Wampler as Haus fell backwards in the later stages with mechanical ills.

A three –car fracas on the frontstretch with two laps to go slowed the action and under the caution flag, the rains hit, stopping the racing program.

Wampler was second followed by Nick Dickson, Patrick Bryner and 21st starter Mike Lupfer.

Sixth through 10th went to Scott Flickinger, Andy Haus, Tim Wilson, Chad Myers and Matt Parks.

Heats went to Dave Brouse Jr., Dylan Yoder and Wampler.

Twin 305 sprint heats went to Jeff Miller and Nate Gramley.

The postponed 305 sprint main will be made up on Saturday, May 14.

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 4/30/2016 – The predicted rain arrived two hours early Saturday night, forcing “410” sprint cars running the consolation event off the track and forcing promoters to postpone the remainder of the 13th Annual Weldon Sterner Memorial until Tuesday, May 10th.

UNITED RACING CLUB JACK GUNN MEMORIAL FOR 360 SPRINT CARS THIS SATURDAY AT 7PM; LATE MODELS, PRO STOCKS & ROADRUNNERS ROUND OUT FIRST FOUR DIVISION RACING CARD OF SEASON!

SELINSGROVE, Pa. -- Selinsgrove Speedway will present the 36th running of the Jack Gunn Memorial for sprint cars at 7 p.m. this Saturday, April 30, sanctioned by the United Racing Club. Joining the 358-360 sprint cars on the racing card will be the super late models, pro stocks, and roadrunners for the first four division racing card of the season. Track gates will open at 5 p.m.

For the 11th consecutive year, the Gunn Memorial will feature a 30-lap race between the traveling URC 360 sprint cars and the track’s weekly Newville Family of Companies 358-360 sprint cars. The race will pay $2,200 to win, $500 for fifth, and $300 to start out of a $13,425 total 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.

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., are a few of the drivers who have won the race as a 410 sprint car event. In the track’s modern era, TJ Stutts of Liverpool, Chad Layton of Harrisburg, Blane Heimbach of Selinsgrove, and Dave Calaman of Carlisle took wins as a 358 sprint car race.

The Gunn Memorial became a URC-sanctioned challenge race between 358 and 360 sprint car drivers in 2006, when Heimbach took the victory as well as in the 2008 and 2012 editions of the race. Calaman (2007); Trevor Lewis of Upper Black Eddy (2009, 2010); Shane Stewart of Indianapolis, Ind. (2011); JJ Grasso of Pedricktown, N.J. (2013); Aaron Ott of East Berlin (2014); and defending winner Mark Smith of Sunbury have also won the Gunn Memorial as a URC-sanctioned event.

The super late models will compete in a 25-lap feature paying $1,500 to win, while the pro stocks will race in a 15-lap main event paying $400 to win. The roadrunners will round out the show with a 12-lap race.

Selinsgrove Raceway Park, the one-fifth mile track located inside of Selinsgrove Speedway’s half-mile oval, will present a complete program of go kart and 125 micro sprint car racing at 7 p.m. Friday, April 29. Track gates will open at 5:30 p.m.

DANNY DIETRICH MAKES LATE-RACE PASS BY DAVE BLANEY
TO WIN ALL STAR RAY TILLEY CLASSIC AT SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY

SELINSGROVE, Pa. -- Danny Dietrich of Gettysburg used a “never say die” attitude when the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions Sprint Car Series returned for the first time in 16 years to Selinsgrove Speedway Sunday night.

The $5,000 victory in the 30-lap Ray Tilley Classic was Dietrich’s second of the weekend in central Pennsylvania and second straight in 410 sprint car racing at Selinsgrove after having won last September’s National Open.

Dave Blaney and Dietrich raced side by side for the first lap of the dash before Blaney took control and it was for good. Blaney never looked back and led the whole way to gain the pole for the feature event.

At the drop of the green flag for the night's main event Blaney jumped out to the early lead before a red flag flew for Caleb Armstrong and Ryan Kissinger. Armstrong's ride went over, but he was ok. On the ensuing restart, the 1987 National Open winner again took a commanding lead while series point leader Chad Kemenah drove into second. Kemenah would stay there until he brought out the caution on lap four as his car slowed.

Blaney again bolted away from the rest of the field on the restart and pulled away from a great battle for second between Danny Dietrich and Kraig Kinser. Mark Smith soon joined that battle for the runner up spot. Blaney's straightaway lead was erased when Aaron Ott slowed on lap 12.

On this restart Smith would move around Kinser for third and close in on Dietrich for second. Dale Blaney also began to close in on the battle as he moved by Kinser for fourth. In the mean time Blaney had driven away again to a sizeable advantage.

The whole race changed when the yellow flag was thrown for Lee Jacobs slowing to a stop on the front stretch. Dietrich had a shot at the race lead and he would take advantage of it. Dietrich had a good start and hung right with Blaney on the inside line while Blaney sailed around the outside of the track. Dietrich was finally able to pull even with Blaney on lap 27 and at the line to score lap 28 Dietrich inched ahead. From that point Dietrich was on his way to his second career Selinsgrove win and his sixth win with the All Stars.

Dietrich followed up his first Selinsgrove Speedway win in the finale of 2015 with a win in the first 410 Sprint Car race of the season in 2016.

Blaney came home second with Mark Smith rounding out the top three. The previous night winner Dale Blaney came home fourth with Blane Heimbach coming home in fifth.

Kraig Kinser, Brent Marks, Lucas Wolfe, Sheldon Haudenschild, and Pat Cannon rounded out the top ten finishers. Haudenschild was the hard charger for the night after grabbing the final transfer spot in the B-Main.

Heat races for the 410 Sprint Cars were won by Mark Smith, Greg Hodnett, Dave Blaney, and Blane Heimbach . TJ Stutts took the B-Main.

The Saturday night race was run in honor of Ray Tilley who is the all time 410 Sprint Car feature winner at Selinsgrove Speedway.

The Fast Tees Fast Timer in memory of Jim Nace was Dietrich.

The remaining 410 Sprint Car races will be held on Friday, June 10 and Sunday, July 3 in the Speedweek finale in memory of Jan Opperman and Dick Boger. Then two Saturday night races on August 13 and September 17 with the Jim Nace Memorial National Open.

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

May 28, 29 & 30 Port Royal Weikert Memorial Money And Formats Announced ~

Sprint Car Extravaganza Offers Over $75,000 In 410-Sprint Purses Alone!

Super late models, URC Sprints and more also slated to take part in action

4/24/16

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – The upcoming three-day Bob Weikert Memorial sprint car racing extravaganza sponsored by Packer’s Concessions at Port Royal Speedway slated for May 28, 29 and 30 is now just over one month away!

And details regarding the highly-lucrative 2016 event for sprints, late models and URC Sprints that encompasses the Memorial Day holiday weekend has just been released.

The three-day program for the 410 sprint cars will culminate on Monday afternoon when the Weikert Champion is crowned based on cumulative points accrued during the three-day event.

But before any champion can be crowned, a ton of racing action will be spun off with an equally impressive ton of money up for grabs!

A conservative total of the three-day 410 sprint car main event purses alone has the prestigious event paying out over $75,000 to the open wheelers in honor of one of the greatest sprint car owners ever to be known across the nation and around the world.

The Weikert Memorial 410 sprints will compete in the now traditional Fallen Heroes Championship on Saturday, May 28 featuring a 30-lap main paying $5,000 to win and $400 to start.

Passing points awarded from qualifying events will be used to align the main event starting grid.

The super late models will race in a 25-lap Fallen Heroes Championship as well on May 28, paying $2,000 to win and $200 to start.

Action then swings to Sunday night, May 29 when the Weikert Memorial sprints spin off time trials to set heat grids before moving on to a 35-lap feature paying a whopping $10,000 to win and $500 just to start.

The URC Sprints will also be part of the Sunday program, competing in a 25-lap feature paying $2,000 to win and $200 to start.

Special bonuses of $300, $200 and $100 will be paid to the highest finishing 358 sprint cars that race in the URC main event.

And after Sunday, less than a day later, the whole weekend of sprint car mania culminates with an afternoon program for the Weikert Memorial sprints paying a minimum of $4,000 to win in a 25-lap main.

And after the dust settles, the three-day Weikert Memorial Champion will be crowned and a five-position point fund worth nearly $9,000 will be paid out with the title holder himself going home with $3,000.

In the event of only two events being completed due to weather, a two-day point fund worth more than $6,000 will be distributed.

All three events have a posted $200 Hard Charger Award up for grabs with the Saturday and Sunday Hard Charger earning a guaranteed starting spot in the following days main event.

Tow money for all 410-sprint non-qualifiers in each program is also up for grabs in the amount of $100.

Monday’s program also offers Central Pa Legends racing and action for the PA mini stocks.

More details about this exciting and growing event at Port Royal Speedway will be forthcoming.

Campsites are available for the huge weekend with information available at the speedway office and on the oval website.

SCOTT GEESEY DRIVES TO SUSQUEHANNA SUPER SPORTSMAN WIN
Jimmy Combs and Tim O’Sheehan Post Other Feature Wins

By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway
YORK HAVEN, PA 4/23/16
After sitting out much of the 2015 racing season after suffering a broken arm and elbow at another speedway, Wellsville racer Scott Geesey returned to winning form Saturday night at Susquehanna Speedway.

Geesey came from his ninth starting spot to earn his first win of the year in the 25-lap Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman feature. Geesey became the third different winner in four events this season at the speedway.

The 25 lap Sportsman event was marred by two separate multi-car crashes on the first lap. Seven cars were involved.

Troy Rhome led lap one before yielding to Chad Smith, who led the next two laps. Paul Miller became the next race leader, also leading two laps before Chad Smith took control and led for two more laps before Geesey arrived on the scene to make what turned out to be the race-winning pass on lap seven.

Geesey then held the point to take the checkered flag aboard his Credit Connection Auto Sales/Silver Lake Bistro and Tavern/Kreitzer Excavating/Thomans LLC/Shetron Equipment #41.

One -time season winner Rich Eichelberger, of Dillsburg came from 16th to finish in the runner-up spot with current point leader Russ Mitten of Newville earning the Hard Charger award after starting back in the 20th position and finishing third. Rounding out the top five were early racer leaders Smith and Miller as Scott Dellinger, Steve Wilbur, two-time winner Gregg Foster, Teddy Thomas and Rick Barr completed the top 10 finishers.

Doug Dodson, Chad Smith and Steve Wilbur won heats for the 29 Super Sportsman. Foster won the consolation. Dodson scratched from the feature event after his machine suffered mechanical woes.

Jimmy Combs grabbed the lead on the first lap of the 20-lap Street Stock feature and led the entire distance to post his first win of the season over Scott Thunberg, Eric Tripp, Bob Scott, Jr., and 11th starter Dalton Frye.

Walt Lemmon, Combs, Doug Hoffman and Craig Morgan were heat race winners for the 32-car field as Dustin Hollinger topped the consolation.

After scratching from his heat race, going home to retrieve a back-up car, Tim O’Sheehan started 17th and last in Road Warrior feature and blasted through the field, taking the lead with five laps complete and driving to the win over Daryl Sipe, Travis Brown, John Shorb, Jr. and Lee Redman.

Dennis Dorosz and Travis Brown were heat winners for the 17 Road Warriors pitside.

Susquehanna Speedway returns to action Saturday, April 30 for KIDS NIGHT. The Credit Connection Auto Sales will once again headline the four-division show which also includes the ARDC Midgets, Xtreme Stocks and Road Warriors. Pits open at 4PM, Grandstands open at 5PM with Racing beginning at 7PM.

Blaney Brothers Put On Port Royal Passing Clinic In Inaugural Kauffman Classic!

Dale claims victory with Dave running from 24th to fourth in 37-car field

Moon Shine Late Model Series Kicks Off With Moon Shine Driver Mattern The Winner

35 entries launch six-race, dual-track series

4/23/16

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – “The Low Rider,” Dale Blaney of Hartford, Oh., scored the big win in Saturday night’s inaugural Keith Kauffman Classic sanctioned by the All Star Circuit of Champions Sprints at Port Royal Speedway.

Blaney led all 30 laps of the special event, putting on a passing clinic with the lead while his brother Dave put on a clinic of his own from the 24th starting sport before finishing a challenging fourth.

In the kickoff race for the Port Royal/Selinsgrove Speedways Moon Shine Camo Rt. 35 Dirt Late Model Challenge Series, Beavertown’s Hayes Mattern piloted the Moon Shine car itself to a storybook victory in the 25-lap affair.

Some 37 All Star sprints vied in the Kauffman Classic on Saturday with the start of the feature itself getting slowed for a three-car tangle in the third corner involving Ohio’s Andrew Palker, Kody Lehman and TJ Stutts.

Dale Blaney zipped from the second starting spot to the lead when the first lap was recorded but was again slowed on the third lap thanks to another caution period.

On the restart, seventh runner Mike Wagner got a fantastic run around the topside of the second corner and blasted around Ryan Smith for sixth before drawing alongside Dylan Cisney for fifth.

And the pair saw close quarters on the backchute end in near disaster as they hooked up near the scoreboard to careen across the track in front of the field, somehow avoiding major contact with oncoming traffic, again slowing the pace and seeing a red flag unfurl for refueling.

Leader Blaney rocketed away at the new green with fourth starter Chad Kemenah of Findlay, Oh, in pursuit but Blaney entered the backmarkers on the 11th tour with plenty of breathing room over Kemenah.

Meanwhile, older brother Dave Blaney, who had started 24th, was rocketing his way around the track as well, running up to eighth by the halfway point while using the high groove.

With 10 laps to go, Dave Blaney was still on the move, now up to sixth after getting around Lucas Wolfe and Sheldon Haudenschild while Brent Marks now raced in eighth after taking the green from the 21st spot.

Dave Blaney had more moves to make as the race wore on into the final stages, running high around the speedway to get by Ryan Smith and then with five to go he blasted around polesitter Steve Buckwalter for fourth.

That put Dale Blaney in the lead and brother Dave solidly inside the top five, albeit a half lap behind.

Another driver surging over the remaining distance was TJ Michael of West Plano, Tx., who started 19th .

Michael worked into a ninth place before the end of the race.

In victory lane, after taking his third career Port Royal victory worth $5,000, Dale Blaney reflected on veteran Keith Kauffman as Kauffman presented the inaugural Kauffman Classic trophy.

The victory for Dale Blaney was the veterans 129th career checkers with the All Star Circuit of Champions Sprints tour that ironically is the same amount of wins that race namesake Kauffman ended his career with at Port Royal Speedway, as the winningest driver in oval history.

Dale Blaney took the win over Kemanah by 5.760 seconds with Greg Hodnett following in third.

Dave Blaney was fourth and Buckwalter completed the top five.

Sixth through 10th went to Brent Marks, Ryan Smith, Sheldon Haudenschild, TJ Michael and 17th starter Blane Heimbach.

Heats went to Kemehan, Smith, Dale Blaney and TJ Stutts with Marks taking the B Main.

Buckwalter started on the pole of the feature by virtue of winning the dash.

Lucas Wolfe set fast time over the field with a lap of 17.092 seconds.

A total of 35 super late models gathered to compete in the kickoff the dual track, six race Moon Shine Camo late model series.

Aboard the Moon Shine Camo No. 9 entry, Hayes Mattern started second in the field and was leading the way over Dave Zona when the races first caution flag unfurled on the third lap.

Zona tried to challenge on the restart but could only watch as Mattern entered the rear of the field on the 14th lap.

With four laps to go in the 25 lapper, 15th starter Andy Haus pulled the move of the race on a restart to go three wide with Zona and third runner Mike Lupfer and come up with the second spot before coming after Mattern for the $2,000 victory.

Haus closed on Mattern over the final four tours but up and comer Mattern was stout enough to preserve his lead for the victory, which was the first of his career at Port Royal Speedway.

Mattern took the win by .677 seconds over point leader Haus, 12th starter Jim Yoder, Lupfer and Zona.

Sixth through 10th went to Billy Wampler, Jeff Rine, Andrew Yoder, Tony Adams and Tim Wilson.

Heats went to Zona, Mattern, Steve Campbell and Lupfer with Chad Hollenbeck taking the consolation race.

The Moon Shine Camo series’ next race is at Selinsgrove Speedway on May 21.

DIETRICH SEVENTH DIFFERENT WINNER IN SEVEN 2016 “410” SPRINT RACES AT LINCOLN;

HAMMAKER TAKES HOLDS OFF HALLIGAN TO CLAIM “358” SPRINT CAR FEAURE

CHANEY, STOUGH WIN CENTRAL PA LEGENDS FEATURES

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 4/23/2016 – Danny Dietrich shook off some early season bad luck in scoring his first win of the year in the 25-lap “410” sprint car feature at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

“We’ve been pretty fast, we just haven’t had any luck. This (Lincoln) is where we’ve been struggling the most,” said Dietrich upon exiting his Sandoe’s Fruit Market/Hickory Run Orchards/Weikert’s Livestock #48 in victory lane, “We got lucky and started at a good spot. We were pretty good. I don’t know how fast we really were, because when you get out front like that…you just don’t know how fast Austin (Hogue) is. Austin has had a heck-of-a car all year here and he’s a contender every night we come here.”

Dietrich moved up a row and started fourth when outside polesitter J.J. Grosso was not able to fire the car for the feature.

Polesitter Kyle Moody to the lead at the start and led the first four laps before Dietrich drove by on the backstretch after a fifth-lap restart.

He led the rest of the way, but could never shake Hogue, crossing just .72 seconds ahead.

“The other guys are picking up the pace and getting fast and I just wasn’t real comfortable yet,” said Dietrich, “We’ve been hindered so much that I quit looking at the gauges. I’m just trying to put it all behind me and trying to get by. There’s been pretty much pressure on me here, and it’s really good for this team to finally park it on the front stretch.”

Third through fifth were Jim Siegel (who moved into the Lincoln points lead after advancing from seventh starting spot), Robbie Kendall, and tenth-starting Adam Wilt.

Completing the top ten were Gerard McIntyre, Jr., 13th-starting Freddie Rahmer, Moody, Tim Glatfelter, and 16th-starting Steve Owings.

Heats for the 30 410 sprints were won by Brian Montieth (who flipped in turn while running ninth on lap 12 of the feature and was credited with 23rd), Glatfelter, and Danny Dietrich, with Brandon Rahmer winning the consolation.

Last week’s winner Tyler Ross was the other feature flip victim, rolling over in turn four of lap 15.

Defending Central PA and Lincoln champion Doug Hammaker claimed his first Lincoln win of the year in the 20-lap “358” sprint car feature.

Hammaker started fifth and snatched the lead from Jeff Halligan in lapped traffic in turns three and four of lap 11, then held off a late-race charge by Halligan at the end. It was Hammaker’s fifth career Lincoln win, and he became the fourth winner in four 358 events this season.

Third through fifth were 11th-starting Jeff Rohrbaugh, 13th-starting Adrian Shaffer, and tenth-starting Chandler Leiby. Rounding out the top ten were polesitter C.J. Tracy (who led the first lap), Matt Findley, Matt Campbell, Cody Fletcher, and Phil Walter.

Heats for the 30 358 sprints were won by Halligan, Fletcher, and Campbell, with Tyler Esh winning the consolation.

Mason Chaney got what he always wanted, his first career Lincoln win, in the 20-lap make-up feature for the Central PA Legends, and event postponed by high winds and rain on April 2nd.

Outside front row starter Nathan Ottensmeyer led the first lap before fourth-starting Scott Houdeshell took over on lap two. Fifth-starting Chaney, who has been attending Lincoln events since childhood, took the lead from Houdeshell on lap 16 and took the checkered 2.8 seconds ahead of Houdeshell.

Third through fifth were 19th-starting Bill Diehl, Chad Earnst, and Chris Transeau.

In the regularly-scheduled feature, Bob Stough came out on top in a four-car battle for the lead to score his fourth career Lincoln win. One of the four, Lucas Montgomery, ran out of fuel on the final lap. The other two drivers were Earnst in second and Chaney in third.

Completing the top five were Bill Diehl and Houdeshell.

Heats for the 28 Legends were won by Mason Chaney (who established an 8-lap track record of 2:44.50 in his qualifier), Diehl, and Harlon Leppo.

Next weekend, Saturday, April 30th, Lincoln Speedway will host the 13TH ANNUAL WELDON STERNER MEMORIAL for 410 Sprints, plus 358 Sprints and All-American Outlaws. Time trials at 7:30 PM, with gates opening at 5:30 PM.

SNEERINGER RETURNS, CLAIMS 358 SPRINT CAR FEATURE; MILLER, CHANEY, CHRONISTER PICK UP DIVISION WINS

Trail-Way Speedway·Friday, April 22, 2016 HANOVER, PA (4/22/2016) – “I just love coming here to race. And it’s really great to be back.” So said defending track champ Isaac Sneeringer after scoring the 2.53-second win in the 25-lap “358” sprint car feature at Trail-Way Speedway Friday night. Sneeringer won on his first night out, just days after his crew picked up and dropped a new Don Ott motor into the DCI/D.E. Wildasin and Son #19Z. “We missed opening night because we didn’t have a motor for the car,” said Sneeringer, “I want to thank the crew for picking it up this week.” Sneeringer started sixth, took second from Seth Kearchner on lap seven, and chased down race-long leader Cody Fletcher over the next ten laps before passing the #66A on the backstretch of lap 18. From there, he drove away to his 13th career Trail-Way win, with Kearchner crossing second and hard charger Mike Bittinger (who started 15th) third. Completing the top five were 12th-starting Doug Hammaker and Fletcher. Rounding out the top ten were 11th-starting Randy Whisler, Chris Frank, Bobby Howard (racing at Trail-Way for the first time in 10 years), Brandon Noel, and Dave Thrush. Heats for the 16 “358” sprints were won by David Holbrook and Fletcher. Holbrook started on the pole but dropped to the infield in the back stretch of the first lap. Bernville’s Hayden Miller started on the pole and dominated the 20-lap 600cc micro-sprint feature, crossing 3.25 seconds in front of Travis Scott. Jim Young, 12th-starting Tyler Walton, and Bo Gordon finished third through fifth. Qualifiers for the 17 micros were won by Scott and Walton. Mason Chaney made a last-turn pass around Chad Ernst to score a thrilling first career win in the 20-lap ServiceMaster Clean Central PA Legends feature. Chris Transeau started on the outside pole and led the first eight laps. Chad Earnst, who started fourth, claimed the lead on lap nine. One lap later Transeau and Bill Diehl got together while racing for second in turn two. Transeau went to the rear and Diehl was cited for roughriding, also sending him to the rear. Travis McClelland assumed second and Chaney third for the restart. Chaney, who was losing his brakes, went to the top, drove around McClelland for second with one lap to go, and charged around Earnst on the final turn. Earnst settled for second, with McClelland third, Greg Burd fourth, and Austin Bellamare fifth. Heats for the 13 Legends were won by Bob Stough and Transeau. Matt Chronister became Trail-Way’s all-time winner in the 15-lap limited stock feature, claiming his 33rd career win by 3.91 seconds over points leader Justin Wagaman. Chronister started on the outside pole and led the first seven laps before yielding to brother Jason Chronister. The Chronister brothers split a lapped car coming off turn four of lap ten. Jason, who may have struck the outside wall, dropped to fourth moments later, handing the lead back to Matt. Matt led the rest of the way, with Wagaman, Ricky Weaver, Jr., 11th-starting Chad Weaver, and tenth starting Joseph Bowling (running in only the second race of his career) completing the top five. Heats for the 20 limited stocks were won by Wagaman and Robbie Carroll, who was unable to start the feature event. Next Friday, April 29, Trail-Way swings back into action with the Precise Racing Products 358 Late Models. Joining the Late Models will be the Limited Stocks, Vintage Cars, Street Stocks and the Mason-Dixon 270 Micro Sprints sponsored by Lucas Oil.

BRIAN MONTIETH DOMINATES TOMMY HINNERSHITZ MEMORIAL SPRING CLASSIC AT WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY

MECHANICSBURG, PA – Brian Montieth shot from fourth to first on the opening lap and went on to win the Tommy Hinnershitz Memorial Spring Classic Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway.

For Montieth, the driver of Jerry Parrish’s No. 21, the win was his 21st at the track and worth $6,000. It was his first Grove win of the season.

He started fourth, drove by Ryan Smith in turn two, and then by Danny Dietrich in turn four to take the lead on lap one of the 30-lapper.

With five laps completed, Montieth led Dietrich and Smith by 1.881 seconds as he reached the back of the field. Greg Hodnett had moved by Lucas Wolfe and into fourth.

“I got awful close to Ryan in that first corner,” said Montieth. “I beat him to the apex, but not by much. To me, I had to run there. That was the race for me. Other than that, just going out to time trial and not messing up. There’s too many good cars behind me. You mess up, you’re going to get passed.”

“We haven’t been good,” said Montieth. “My boys have spent a lot of time in the shop tearing this thing apart and putting it back together. I don’t think we’re good enough to win every night yet, but we’re making progress. We lucked out with (Dale) Blaney breaking. That moved us up. All the cards played the way they needed to play.”

Dietrich would close as Montieth negotiated lapped traffic. Montieth was racing hard and sliding by slower cars in the corners to keep Dietrich in second.

Montieth momentarily cleared traffic at the halfway point to give him some breathing room over Dietrich. Hodnett, meanwhile, raced around Smith for third.

With 10 laps to go, Montieth had a two-car cushion on Dietrich and was racing in clean air. Hodnett would pass Dietrich in turn two.

Hodnett’s pass by Dietrich wouldn’t count as the yellow flew as point leader Doug Esh did a 360-spin at the end of the frontstretch. He kept going, but the field was slowed with Montieth leading Dietrich and Hodnett with eight laps to go.

Hodnett looked low on Dietrich for a lap after the restart, but the outside groove was too fast and he moved back up to the cushion.

The final lap saw Montieth check-up entering turn three due to a lapped car. He moved low to block Dietrich’s attempt at a slider. The Phoenixville racer would get the win by 0.760 seconds. Dietrich, Hodnett, Stevie Smith and Ryan Smith completed the top five.

Esh, who got his spot back after the yellow, Alan Krimes, Freddie Rahmer, Lucas Wolfe and Cory Haas rounded out the top 10.

Hodnett set fast time over the 26-car field with a lap of 16.971 seconds. S. Smith, Montieth, Wolfe, and R. Smith completed the top five qualifiers. Drivers were given only one lap in time trials due to the impending weather.

The eight-lap heat races were won by Dietrich, Esh and Ott. No consolation was needed as Dale Blaney and Jay Galloway scratched for the night after mechanical problems in their heat races. The show was moved along fast as rain was in the area.

Mike Potts won the 15-lap street stock feature over Kory Sites, Craig Morgan, Chris Derr, Dalton Frye and Chris Heller.

The Grove returns to action next Friday night with the 410 and URC 360-Sprint cars on the schedule. In two weeks, the 358 Sprints return, along with the third Yellow Breeches 500 race for the 410 Sprints paying $500 to start a regular 25-lap feature.

Sprint Car Feature (30 laps): 1. Brian Montieth. 2. Danny Dietrich. 3. Greg Hodnett. 4. Stevie Smith. 5. Ryan Smith. 6. Doug Esh. 7. Alan Krimes. 8. Freddie Rahmer. 9. Lucas Wolfe. 10. Cory Haas. 11.

GREGG FOSTER REPEATS WITH SECOND SUPER SPORTSMAN WIN

Bright, Broderick and Derosz Score Other Feature wins

By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA 4/16/16 For the second time in three starts, “The Gasman” Gregg Foster visited Victory lane at Susquehanna Speedway after leading all 25 laps of Saturday night’s Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman feature.

The Harrisburg driver drew the pole position for the feature event and led flag to flag despite being challenged by eventual runner-up Scott Dellinger.

Foster had to withstand numerous yellow flags and two red flags before securing the win aboard his American Legion Dept. of Pennsylvania #32 RPM Chassis.

Six cautions slowed the race during the first half of the event, which include Tom Wyckoff’s stopped car on lap 4, a Devin Beidel spin on the lap four restart, a spin by Tony Jackson with eight laps complete, a tangle by Nate Young and Beidel with 10 laps down, Rick Barr’s stopped car on lap 12 and a Jay Fannasy caution with 13 laps down.

A red flag was needed for an medical emergency in the grandstands and a Frankie Herr/Davey Walsh crash on lap 14 which saw Walsh get upside down.

Foster scored the win ahead of sixth starting Dellinger, of Lewisberry with Wellsville’s Scott Geesey advancing from 10th to third ahead of Mechanicsburg’s Kevin Nouse and 14th starter Russ Mitten of Newville.

Completing the top 10 finishers were Mike Enders, Doug Dodson, 18th starting Paul Miller (Hard Charger), week two winner Rich Eichelberger and Chad Criswell.

Eichelberger, Nouse and Foster were heat winners for the 30 Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman while the consolation was won by Teddy Thomas.

Brendan Bright took the lead from Tommy Kunsman, Jr. on the 17th lap of the 20 lap ARDC Midget to feature and drove to the win.

Trevor Kobylarz rode home in the runner-up spot with Kunsman taking third ahead of Alex Bright and Nick Wean with Jim Radney, Brett Arndt, Ryan Wilson, Danny Stratton and Justin Grosz completing the top 10 finishers.

Heats for the 18 ARDC Midgets were won by Brendan Bright and Stratton.

Donnie Broderick started on the front row of the 20-lap Xtreme Stock Car feature and never looked back in scoring the victory over Alex Updegraff, Ronnie Buck, John Frye and Brian Rehbin.

Broderick and Davey Nestor won heats for the 18 Xtreme Stocks.

Dennis Derosz led all 15 laps to score the Mini Van win over Daryl Sipe, Thomas Thompson, Ken Boose and Joe Laclaire.

HOMETOWN DRIVER KELLER WINS SPRINT CAR
SPRING SHOWDOWN IN SELINSGROVE OPENER;
RINE & SHOOP OPEN TITLE DEFENSES WITH VICTORIES

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Hometown driver Cody Keller of Selinsgrove scored a popular win in the 30-lap Spring Showdown for 360 sprint cars in Saturday night’s season opener at Selinsgrove Speedway with the United Racing Club and Empire Super Sprints.

Keller’s fourth career sprint car victory at the wheel of the Keller’s Auto Body No. 99 was worth $2,200 and came over a stellar field of 33 360 sprint cars.

Jeff Rine opened his late model title defense with his 97th career win at the track in the 25-lap super late model feature, while Andrew Shoop of Mifflintown scored his second opening day win in a row in the 15-lap pro stock race.

Next Saturday the speedway will be dark to prepare for the first All Star Sprint Car race at the track in 16 years. The All Start Circuit of Champions Sprint Car series will be in action in a 30-lap A-main paying $5,000 to win for 410 sprint cars at 6 p.m. Sunday, April 24. Track gates will open at 4 p.m.

Front row starters Steve Collins and Cody Keller thrilled the fans trading the race lead on the opening lap of the sprint car feature before a red flag for a wild flip by Jordan Thomas. Thomas was ok and when the race restarted Collins and Keller picked up right where they had left off dueling for the top spot before Keller secured it on lap five.

The race would go through without another stoppage allowing the field to cover the whole speedway with cars. Robbie Stillwagon picked up the runner up spot from Collins as lap nine went onto the scoreboard. While things settled down in the front of the field Mark Smith was working his way from the 15th starting spot into the top five. Although Stillwagon closed in on the leader a few times, Keller began to open up a large lead by halfway at lap 15.

Smith had worked by Justin Barger for third on lap 15 and gave chase of Stillwagon for second. As the race wound down Keller continued to cut through lap traffic and grow his lead over now second spot Mark Smith. Although Smith persisted to charge toward the leader time was up and Cody Keller met the checkered flag for the opening night win which he dedicated to his grandfather who passed away over the offseason. It was Keller's fourth Selinsgrove win.

Smith finished in second with Stillwagon and Barger inside the top five with Jason Clauss. Davie Franek gained ten spots to finish sixth just ahead of Curt Michael, Derek Locke, Steve Collins, and Ryan Kissinger. Heat races for the Newville Family of Companies 360 Sprints went to Steve Collins, Cody Keller, Justin Hoffman, Robbie Stillwagon with the B-Main victory going to Jordan Thomas.

Jeff Rine used a great start and big move off turn four to power by early race leader Dave Zona while battling with Colby Frye in the Jeff's Auto Body & Recycling Center Super Late Model feature. Once out front Rine drove away from a fierce battle for second between Coleby Frye and Bryan Bernheisel.

Rine was in lap traffic by lap eight while Frye closed the gap for the race lead. A lap 11 restart saw Frye give his best effort for the lead on a restart, but Rine was able to fend him off. The race again heated up for the runner up spot as Steve Campbell challenged Frye and Bernheisel. Once Campbell was able to take second on lap 23 his only hope for a shot at the leader was a yellow. The green flag remained out and Jeff Rine claimed career win number 97 at the speedway in the season opener.

Campbell, Frye, Jim Yoder, and Bernheisel rounded out the top five. Dave Zona was the sixth car across the line with Hayne Mattern, Tony Adams, Larry Baer, and Luke Hoffer rounding out the top ten. Heat race winners went to Bryan Bernheisel, Steve Campbell, and Jeff Rine.

Andrew Shoop had no easy task to win the season opener in the A&A Auto Stores Pro Stock feature event. Shoop, who is coming off a Pro Stock title season, held off numerous attempts from fifth place starter Tommy Slanker and last year's big Pro Stock winner Brad Mitch.

On lap ten the top three closed to run all but nose to tail for the top spot as Shoop maneuvered around some of the lap traffic. Once clear Shoop drove away to the opening night win. The battle for second was settled with a slide job and cross over on the last corner with Slanker taking the spot over Mitch. Kurt Wray and John Troxell rounded out the top five finishers. Matt Hornberger, Nate Stroup, Dan Condo, John Bouse, and Peanut Heintzelman rounded out the top ten. Heat races were won by Brad Mitch, Tommy Slaker, and Kurt Wray.

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

Hodnett Wins 44th In Port Royal Sprints Crash Marred Main, Wampler Wins Port Royal First In Late Models, Gramley Sweeps 305s

4/16/16

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Greg Hodnett scored the 410 sprint car feature at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night to record his second oval win of the season in a race that was marred by a horrific opening lap frontstretch melee.

In the super late model main York Haven’s Billy Wampler won for the first time ever at the track, outrunning point leader Andy Haus for the victory.

Nate Gramley of Lewistown scored a clean sweep of both 305 sprint features on the night after running off with the April 2 make up event as well as the regularly scheduled main.

For the sixth consecutive year, Race To Cure Cancer Night proved to be successful at the track with a check for $1,218.50 being donated to the American Cancer Society as a result of proceeds from admissions as well as a special auction held early in the night.

The start of the 25-lap 410 sprint car main saw a massive, violent and scary crash take place on the frontstretch involving eight cars in front of the grandstand with four of them flipping.

After contact with Doug Esh as the field sped down the front chute, Lucas Wolfe careened across the track in front of the field, flipping while getting hit hard by oncoming traffic.

Other cars that flipped belonged to Curt Stroup, Joey Hershey and Cory Thornton with Thornton coming from 15th starting spot into the melee and catapulting through the carnage before slamming onto the track with the throttle stuck wide open as it vaulted back and forth before finally falling silent.

Additional cars involved included Ryan Taylor, Daryl Stimeling, Rick Lafferty and Kody Lehman.

While all drivers climbed from their racers, Thornton was transported to a local hospital.

Apparently thanks to the contact, Esh pulled pitside under the stoppage but would rejoin at the rear for the return to action that found Brock Zearfoss and Blane Heimbach on the front row.

The race did go non-stop following the opening lap fracas with Zearfoss touring around the oval with the lead for the first 10 laps before Hodnett took over.

After starting third, Hodnett got by Heimbach for second on the opening lap and then gradually ran down Zearfoss to make the pass and run away.

Hodnett’s margin of victory for his 44th career Port Royal checkers was 7.545 seconds.

The current point leader, Hodnett apologized repeatedly in victory lane, feeling responsible for prompting the opening lap crash that started when Esh had to slow up to keep from hitting Hodnett as he worked across the track to get to a higher line.

Zearfoss finished the feature in second followed by Heimbach, Dylan Cisney, Esh, Mike Wagner, Taylor, Tyler Bear, Wayne Dadetto and Lehman.

Heats went to Zearfoss and Heimbach.

Second starter Andrew Yoder took the lead at the start of the 22-lap super late model main with third starter Wampler in tow.

The yellow flag unfurled with four laps in the book when Mike Lupfer made contact with the inside backstretch fence as he raced hard with Andy Haus for fourth.

Wampler trailed Yoder and raced side by side with him for the top spot for several laps as the race headed toward the halfway point as Yoder buzzed around the top with Wampler to his inside.

Wampler finally made the inside work on the 13th tour, making the pass as the pair raced through the second corner and onto the backchute.

Yoder would eventually fall victim to Haus with six laps to go however that would be a far as Haus could advance while Yoder ended a fine third.

Chad Hollenbeck and Tim Smith Jr. completed the top five.

Sixth through 10th went to Lupfer, Scott Flickinger, Dave Brouse Jr., Tim Gray and Chad Julius.

Heats went to Lupfer and Wampler.

Gramley resumed the make up April 2 305 sprint main with the lead with two laps completed.

Defending Port Royal Champion Jeff Miller worked into second spot on the sixth loop and threatened to challenge for the lead.

The trio of Gramley, Miller and Zach Newlin staged a spirited battle for the lead at the halfway point but the race was then red flagged for a two-car tangle on the 14th circuit.

Miller began smoking shortly after the restart and eventually fell out of the race as Gramley went on to win over Newlin, Jake Waters, Ken Duke and Scott Lutz.

Gramley wired the field in the regularly slated 305 sprint main with Newlin racing second until lap 10 when Drew Ritchie took the spot.

Mark Watkins surged late in the race to end up third followed by Newlin and Waters.

Heats went to Mike Kiser, Gramley and Newlin.

TYLER ROSS SCORES CAREER FIRST IN LINCOLN 410 SPRINT CAR FEATURE;

Campbell comes from eighth to score first win of the year in 358 sprints;

Kyle Lear also wins first in 358 late models

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 4/16/2016 – “This is unbelievable. I need someone to pinch me right now.”

So said Tyler Ross after scoring his first career win in the 410 sprint car feature at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

Points handicapping placed Ross on the outside of the front row for the start, but he dropped to fourth by the end of the first lap. He recovered to pass Robbie Kendall for third on lap two, and then reclaimed second from Austin Hogue on a lap 11 restart, following a caution for Danny Dietrich, who stopped in turn four after bouncing off the wall in turns one and two.

He chased polesitter and race-long leader Tim Glatfelter for the next four laps before grabbing the lead from Trone Outdoor/Eagle Steel #39 on a lap 16 restart.

He led the rest of the way in non-stop racing over the final ten laps, crossing 1.87 seconds ahead of a closing Alan Krimes, who advanced from tenth starting spot to finish second.

“I wasn’t sure it was going to happen, especially this early in the season,” said Ross, “This is only our third time here this year, so to be this fast this early I’m excited to see how the rest of the season goes.”

Glatfelter, Hogue, and Kendall completed the top five, with Jim Siegel, Gerard McIntyre, Jr., Brian Montieth, Cory Haas, and Danny Dietrich rounding out the top ten.

“I gotta thank my dad (Sam). He works his tail off all week long in getting this thing ready,” added Ross, “We’ve got a lot of good help this year. I want to thank Rick Lefever from Lefever Electric (prime sponsor). He couldn’t make it tonight. We’ll have to give him a call here.”

“This is my third year here, and I finally learned to get the wing back,” added Ross, “I got a lot of bite coming off the bottom on the restarts, and that helped me get into the corners.

Heats for the 27 410 sprints were won by Danny Dietrich, McIntyre, and Ross, with Billy Dietrich winning the consolation.

Fawn Grove’s Matt Campbell came from eighth starting spot to claim the win in the 20-lap “358” sprint car feature.

Wyatt Hinkle led the first two laps from the pole before sixth-starting Tyler Esh drove around him into the race lead on lap three. Meanwhile, Campbell followed him into second on the fifth lap before running him down at the half-way point. Campbell led the rest of the way through heavy lapped traffic, crossing 1.47 seconds ahead of Esh, with tenth-starting Adrian Shaffer, Matt Findley, and Jeff Rohrbaugh completing the top five.

Heats for the 31 358 sprints were won by Shaffer, Brie Hershey, and Kyle Denmyer, with Chandler Leiby winning the consolation.

Kyle Lear scored his first career Lincoln win in the Precise Racing Products three-track series opener for 358 late models. Lear started on the pole and raced side-by-side with outside front row starter Sam Gallagher for the first two laps, with Gallagher leading lap one and Lear scored the leader of lap two.

Lear controlled the pace the rest of the way, despite late-race heat from Ralph Morgan, Jr., who pulled alongside Lear racing off the final turns to the checkered flag.

Third through fifth were Gallagher, Randy Christine, Jr., and Shaun Jones.

Heats for the 23 358 late models were won by Lear, Gallagher, and Christine.

Next weekend, Saturday, April 23rd, Lincoln Speedway will host the 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints, and Central PA Legends at 7 PM. That night the Legends will compete in a regularly scheduled racing program with 20-lap feature, along with the April 2nd rained-out 20-lap feature. Gates will open at 5 PM.

Friday April 15, 2016 Trail-Way Speedway Hanover, PA

UPCOMING EVENTS: Fri., April 22, 2016 – 358 Sprints, 600 Micros, Limited Stocks, Central PA Legends (Gates open at 5:30 p.m., Heats at 7:45 p.m.)

THREE FIRST-TIME WINNERS IN FOUR DIVISIONS AT TRAIL-WAY;

HANOVER, PA (4/15/2016) –For all he’s accomplished in 358 sprint car racing the past few years, including the 2015 Central PA Point Series championship, Carlisle’s Doug Hammaker had never won at Trail-Way Speedway. That is, until Friday night.

“This is the hardest place to win,” said Hammaker after driving the family Heavy Equipment Loaders and Parts/Hammaker’s Automotive #66 to his first career Trail-Way win in the season opener for 358 sprint cars, “I’ve been wanting to get one here, and quite frankly I have sucked here.”

An inversion of nine pulled by first heat winner Mike Bittinger put Hammaker on the pole for the start, and although he led every lap, he had to fight off the ongoing challenges of Dwight Leppo the entire race.

“I was trying to make my car as wide as I could, and Dwight kept trying to get around me,” said Hammaker, “The outside started working for him, so I decided to put on my big boy pants and move up a little.”

After drawing the highest possible inversion for the feature, Bittinger got together with Wyatt Hinkle and flipped exiting turn two of lap two. Bittinger was uninjured but done for the night.

Leppo started third when two drivers in front of him opted for the rear, got by Brandon Noel for second on lap two, and ran there the rest of the way.

Third through fifth were Jeff Halligan, hard charger Cody Fletcher (who started 11th), and Noel. Completing the top ten were Zach Euculano, Dave Thrush, Randy Whisler, Hinkle, and Steven Kisamore (in his first ever sprint car start). Heats for the 18 “358” sprint cars were won by Bittinger, Thrush, and Leppo.

It was also a first career Trail-Way win for Levi Peck of Orrstown in the 270c micro-sprint feature, which was shortened by three laps when the division reached its maximum number of cautions (eighth).

Bill Laughman, Cory Myers, Brian Marriott, and Chad Myers completed the top five.. Qualifiers for the 25 270s were won by Laughman, Cory Myers, and Peck.

Ron Grove made it three first-time winners on the night by claiming the shortened 15-lap feature for Classic Cars. Grove started on the pole and held off the constant challenges of Neal Reamer and Joe Brown for the win. Grove also won the lone heat for the nine Classic Cars in attendance.

Chad Weaver, who also raced in the 270 micros, picked up the win in the 15-lap limited stock feature. Weaver assumed the lead twice in the race when different drivers both suffered mechanical problems while leading. First it was polesitter Ricky Weaver, Jr. who slowed to a stop on lap eight. Matt Chronister caught Weaver one lap later, but then pulled up lame entering turn one of the final lap.

Weaver was there to take the win, followed by Justin Wagaman, Robbie Carroll, Shane Miller, and Travis Brown. Heats were won by Ricky Weaver, Jr., Chad Weaver, and Jason Chronister.

Next Friday, April 22, Trail-Way swings back into action with the Hoosier Tire Mid-Atlantic 358 Sprint Cars. Joining the 358’s will be the 600 Micro Sprints, Limited Stocks, and Central PA Legends. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. and heats begin at 7:45 p.m.

For all the latest news and related information from Trail-Way Speedway, fans are reminded to visit the speedway website at www.trail-wayspeedway.com. The complete story and agate from each race night is posted shortly after the final checkered flag.

Doug Esh Hammers Home To Win Williams Grove, Ellerman scores 305s

4/15/16

Mechanicsburg – Doug Esh of Lancaster put the hammer down to overtake Austin Hogue and go on to win the 410 sprint car feature at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night.

Elsewhere in the 20-lap 305 sprint main it was Landisburg’s Scott Ellerman taking the victory on his birthday.

The 25-lap sprint car main was red flagged on just the first lap when polesitter Matt Campbell cleared the outside turns three and four fence, flipping wildly but escaping injury.

Leader Austin Hogue continued on his way when action resumed with seventh starter Esh running third as the field entered the backmarkers on the eighth tour, just before a final caution flag unfuled with nine laps away.

Esh got around Brock Zearfoss for second on the restart and began chasing Hogue for the lead and win.

And of course Hogue again entered the backmarkers and it was at that point when Esh was able to more substantially close the gap between he and the leader.

But time was running out as the laps clicked off and it took until three laps to go for Esh to get around the fleet running Hogue.

Esh was able to throw his No. 07 in front of Hogue with a deep swoop into the third corner before driving up across the track to take control as lap 22 was scored.

The Lancaster driver then pulled away to a 1.699 second lead at the finish over Hogue.

It was Esh’s 23rd career win at the oval, worth $3,600.

As the race came to the checkers, Danny Dietrich pounced on Brian Montieth in the third corner for third after Montieth had driven from seventh into the spot.

Montieth ended up fourth followed by Greg Hodnett.

Sixth through 10th went to Lance Dewease in his first Williams Grove start of the season, Brock Zearfoss, Freddie Rahmer, Stevie Smith and Mark Smith.

Heats went to Rahmer, Mark Smith and Hogue with the consolation going to Lucas Wolfe.

Jaremi Hanson took the lead at the start of the 305 sprint main followed by Ellerman.

And just like in the 410 sprint car main, traffic would play a factor in the race for the lead.

Hanson struggled with the backmarkers giving Ellerman his chance and he made good on a run with three laps to go to steal the win.

Hanson then tried to come back on Ellerman for the victory but to no avail as a caution flag with two laps to go cleared the track, allowing Ellerman to drive away.

Mike Kiser was third followed by Zach Newlin and Jordan Thomas.

Sixth through 10th went to George Riden, Colby Dice, Dave Brown Jr., Ken Duke and Stephanie Dodson.

Jared Esh won the Wee Bee Audio and Video Hard Charger Award for driving from 23rd to 15th at the finish.

Heats went to Ellerman, Newlin and Riden with Rick Stief taking the consolation race.

NEWVILLE FAMILY OF COMPANIES ANNOUNCES TITLE SPONSORSHIP OF WEEKLY SPRINT CAR RACING AT SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY IN 2016!

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Selinsgrove Speedway welcomes the Newville Family of Companies as the title sponsor of the weekly 360 sprint car racing programs at the historic Snyder County oval in 2016. The sponsorship includes several incentive programs that are also designed to support 358 sprint car teams.

Owned and operated by veteran open wheel racer Jim Shuster, the Newville Family of Companies includes Newville Electric Services, Newville Construction Drilling & Blasting Specialists, Newville Mat Company, and Eleven Oaks Farms.

“We’re very grateful to Jim Shuster and his family for their generosity in putting together this major sponsorship of the sprint car racing programs at Selinsgrove Speedway,” said speedway General Manager Steve Inch. “Jim and his son Mallie have been avid supporters of the 360 sprint car program, and this sponsorship confirms their commitment to helping us make the division a success at Selinsgrove.”

In addition to co-sponsoring the $10,000 point fund for the 360 sprint cars with Hoosier Tire Mid-Atlantic, several incentive programs will also be in place this season courtesy of the Newville Family of Companies.

For the first time, the speedway will offer the Sprint Car Heat Race Victory Bonus for the driver who wins the most heat wins ($500), second most qualifiers ($250), and third most heat races ($100) at the conclusion of the season.

For 358 sprint car teams who compete with the 360 sprints at Selinsgrove, there is a competition bonus program and a separate $2,000 point fund for 358 sprint drivers who support the track this season.

The 358 competition bonus program will be in effect for non-sanctioned 358-360 sprint car races at the track this year, including May 7, May 14, June 25, July 9, July 16, July 23, Aug. 6, Aug. 20, and Aug. 27. The first 358 sprint car driver to cross the finish line will earn a $200 bonus in the main events on the aforementioned dates, with $125 and $100 bonuses being paid to 358 drivers who cross the finish line second and third, respectively.

A $1,000 bonus is being posted to the 358 sprint car point champion, with $500, $300, and $200 being paid to the top four 358 sprint car point finishers who compete in at least half of the designated race dates.

“We put some incentives in place to encourage 358 sprint car drivers to race Selinsgrove,” said Jim Shuster. “For 13 years the 358’s were the open wheel division before the track transitioned to the 360 sprints in 2014. Hopefully the bonus money helps out some of those teams that haven’t yet made the switch from 358’s to 360’s.”

Danny Dietrich, Ryan Smith, Brent Marks, Austin Hogue and 19th starter Doug Esh completed the top 10 finishers.

Ryan Smith, Anthony Fiore and Brent Marks were heat winners for the 29 BAPS 410 Sprint cars pitside. Doug Esh topped the consolation.

LINCOLN SPEEDWAY

Abbottstown, PA

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Saturday, April 9, 2016 (7 PM) - 410 Sprints, Super Sportsman, and Street Stocks

Saturday, April 16, 2016 (7 PM) – ARCH NIGHT - 410 Sprints, 358 Sprint, and 358 Late Models

FREDDIE RAHMER FIFTH WINNER IN FIVE ’16 RACES ON A BIZARRE NIGHT AT LINCOLN;

Rohrbaugh becomes all-time Lincoln 358 sprint winner in rain-shortened event

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 4/2/2016 – On a bizarre night that saw the three leaders all drop from the field on the same lap, Freddie Rahmer assumed the lead and held off Cory Haas and Gerard McIntyre for his second career win at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

Rahmer started eighth and was running fourth when brother Brandon and Adam Wilt got together and both spun in turn two of lap 20. At the same time, third-place Austin Hogue went up in smoke and headed to the infield, ending his night.

“I don’t know what happened to my brother there,” said Rahmer in victory lane, “It’s a shame for him…he was running good laps. I got into a rhythm there about half-way through. I got by Hogue and then messed up, got back by him….and that won the race because we lost those cars.”

Brandon Rahmer started on the pole and led every lap up until his misfortune on lap 20. Wilt had started tenth and was on Brandon’s bumper when the two leaders spun.

The anticipated drive from mid-pack up through the field by former champ Danny Dietrich and defending champ Brian Montieth ended abruptly on lap two when they were caught up in a chain-reaction crash which started with Brandon Rahmer almost into the wall while leading in turn two. Rahmer came down across the track and collected JJ Grasso, but Rahmer never stopped and, in the confusion, both Dietrich and Montieth tangled into the back stretch guardrail, ending both racers’ night.

“I’m glad to win, but I wish Brandon had a good finish,” said Rahmer, “I want to thank Moon (Byers) for getting the car really good and Don Ott for the good engines. Leffler Energy has come on board as a sponsor, and Miller Brothers and A.R.A.N. Trading are also good sponsors. I think these guys know they gotta race me now.”

Haas crossed 1.47 seconds behind Rahmer, with McIntyre third. Alan Krimes (who started 15th) and Glenndon Forsythe (who started 13th) completed the top five. Sixth through tenth were 16th-starting Robbie Kendall, 19th-starting Jim Siegel, Billy Dietrich, Scott Fisher, and 20th-starting Tyler Ross.

Both of Rahmer’s Lincoln wins came after advancing from fourth to first on the same lap. Last time, it was a late 2015 event in which Rahmer came from fourth to first in wild last-lap racing.

Heats for the 28 410 sprints were won by Grasso, Montieth, and Danny Dietrich, with Siegel winning the consolation.

The “358” sprint car feature was no less bizarre, with polesitter Adrian Shaffer leading the first 13 laps before spinning around exiting turn four, handing the lead over to Jeff Rohrbaugh. Despite the spin, Shaffer was able to complete the ‘360’ and hang on to second.

Four laps later, the predicted high winds and rain arrived, ending the event after 17 laps.

With his 14th career win, Rohrbaugh became the all-time winningest 358 driver at Lincoln.

Third through fifth behind runner-up Shaffer were Kyle Denmyer, Chandler Leiby, and Cody Fletcher.

Heats for the 31 358 sprints were won by Rohrbaugh, Leiby, and Wyatt Hinkle (who scratched from the feature event), with Troy Wagaman, Jr. winning the consolation.

The sudden wind and rain forced postponement of the 20-lap Central PA Legends feature. That event will be made up when the Legends return on April 23rd.

Heats for the 20 Legends were won by Harlon Leppo and Chad Earnst.

Next weekend, Saturday, April 9th, Lincoln Speedway will host another three-division show featuring the 410 Sprints, Super Sportsman, and Street Stocks at 7 PM. Gates will open at 5 PM.

PRS 2016 – Racing through a new decade with a new attitude! Port Royal Speedway

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

Buckwalter And Lupfer Win Port Royal Mains, Rain Halts 305 Sprints

4/2/16

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Steve Buckwalter and Mike Lupfer took wins in the 410 sprint and super late model mains at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night while rains halted the 305 sprint feature event with just two laps completed.

Buckwalter and Tyler Bear started on the front row of the 410 sprint car main but the first start was called back after a spin by Bear in front of the field sent cars scattering in the fourth turn.

While under the yellow a brief shower halted the event for approximately 20 minutes before action resumed.

With Bear now off of the front row, Logan Wagner started outside Buckwalter and took the lead quickly when the green flag unfurled.

A yellow flag again appeared with two laps recorded for a spin by Mike Wagner II., finding Lucas Wolfe racing third in the field.

Wagner jetted away on the restart and quickly ate up the distance between him and the rear of the field, entering the backmarkers on the seventh tour of the 25-lapper.

Working traffic, Buckwalter was able to close in on the leader enough to have him within striking distance at the halfway point and while Wagner worked to stay in front, Buckwalter got his first real opportunity with just over 10 laps to go.

As the pair of leaders raced off of the fourth corner, Buckwalter was able to get to Wagner’s outside as the leader struggled with a lapped car, and he was scored the leader with 15 laps away.

And just a few seconds later, Wagner suddenly spewed smoke and steam as he flung his mount around the first and second turns in pursuit of Buckwalter, only to see the motor lock up and pitch his car sideways at the top of the backchute, in front of the rest of the field.

Luckily, all others avoided contact with Wagner’s disabled racer but he was out for the night.

This placed Wolfe on Buckwalter’s tail for the new green and although he took a look to Buckwalter’s inside in the first corner, Buckwalter rocketed away from him onto the backstretch.

Wolfe took kept the leader within striking distance over the next several laps to the finish but was unable to mount another bid before the finish, crossing the line .865 seconds behind at the checkers.

The victory was the fifth of Buckwalter’s career at Port Royal.

Mike Wagner Sr. was third followed by Brent Marks and Mark Smith.

Sixth through 10th went to Greg Hodnett, Doug Esh, Ryan Taylor, TJ Stutts and Dylan Cisney.

Heats went to Bear, Wagner Sr. and Cisney.

Mike Lupfer started second in the 22-lap super late model main and led all circuits on his way to his first victory of the 2016 season, in defense of his track title.

Lupfer saw fourth starter Nick Dickson rocket into second on the first lap, getting by polesitter Billy Wampler for the spot.

The pace was then stopped with three laps away for a violent crash at the exit of the second turn between Matt Parks and Dylan Yoder with both drivers retiring for the night.

Lupfer saw Dickson challenge when action resumed but he was able to get away.

However Dickson would prove hard to shake, chasing Lupfer through traffic during the second half of the event.

Dickson was able to pull alongside Lupfer for the lead as the pair reached the six-to-go point but before he could pull off a pass, Dickson bit the outside frontstretch wall and fell backwards, allowing Lupfer to escape for the victory.

This allowed point leader Andy Haus to capitalize as he motored by Dickson for second with two laps to go.

Lupfer ended up taking his ninth career win at the track by 4.343 seconds ahead of Haus, Dickson, Wampler and Waylon Wagner.

Sixth through 10th went to Trent Brenneman, Devin Friese, Chad Hollenbeck, Justin Kaan and Scott Flickinger.

Heats went to Brenneman, Dickson and Friese.

The 18-lap 305 sprint main fell victim to rain on the second lap when a sudden downpour hit the oval, finding the field racing into the third turn as the rain hit.

Cale Reigel flipped outside the fourth turn fence and escaped injury. Earlier in the night in warm ups, contact between Jim Kennedy and Dave Guss Jr. found Guss also flipping outside the track in the third turn.

A make up date for the balance of the 305 sprint main will be announced in the coming weeks.

Cannon Wins Battle For Williams Grove Sprints Win, Adrian Shaffer Takes 358 Opener

4/1/16

Mechanicsburg – It was a battle of the No. 3’s Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway as Brock Zearfoss and Pat Cannon battled for the sprint car win with Cannon coming out on top for the $3,600 payday.

And in the season debut of the 358 sprints at the track it was Adrian Shaffer taking his third speedway season opener for the division in a row.

Zearfoss started the 25-lap 410 sprint car feature on the pole and led the first lap over Tim Glatfelter before fourth starter Cannon drove into second using the high groove.

Cannon would not abandon his top lane despite the majority of the field racing around the inside of the oval including leader Zearfoss and with nine laps completed the first caution flag appeared with Zearfoss still the leader despite Cannon racing on his bumper for several consecutive laps.

After the yellow for a flat tire on Danny Dietrich’s racer, the restart saw the war on wheels continue with Zearfoss hugging the inside and Cannon slinging his mount around the top side.

Cannon would get better runs around the top in the third and fourth corners but it was the first and second turns where he had to work harder to make time on the leader.

The Etters driver finally put it all together on the 13th tour when he was able to draw even with Zearfoss as the pair exited the second corner before taking command as they shot onto the backchute.

For the next few laps after getting the lead Cannon maintained his outside line but during the final several laps he would move to the bottom to preserve the victory.

A final restart with eight laps to go after a spin by Lucas Wolfe failed to produce any pressure on Cannon for the win.

However as the leader worked traffic as he neared the white flag, some careful moves to make his way around allowed Alan Krimes to get too close for comfort.

Krimes had taken second on the 18th loop and closed right up on Cannon’s bumper as they came to the white flag but that was as close as he would be able to get.

After clearing the backmarker Cannon pulled away on the final lap to get his first win of the year.

Krimes was second followed by Doug Esh, Zearfoss and Brian Montieth.

Sixth through 10th went to Freddie Rahmer, Glatfelter, Steve Buckwalter, Mark Smith and Danny Dietrich.

Heats went to Montieth, Dietrich and Greg Hodnett.

Chris Arnold led from the pole in the 358 sprint main with Matt Campbell giving chase.

However Campbell brought out a yellow flag with eight laps completed when he lost the handle in the fourth corner, placing sixth starter Adrian Shaffer in second for the restart.

Arnold was flawless until two laps to go when he allowed Shaffer an opening as the pair raced off of the second corner.

Arnold seemed to slip during the late stages, allowing Shaffer to get control and drive away.

Doug Hammaker got by Arnold as well during the final mile, relegating Arnold to third for the finish.

Kevin Nouse and Glenndon Forsythe completed the top five.

Sixth through 10th went to Chandler Leiby, Matt Findley, Jordan Givler, Nyle Berkes and David Holbrook.

Heats went to Findley, Campbell and Leiby.

GREGG FOSTER OPENS SUSQUEHANNA SEASON WITH SPORTSMAN WIN

Gene Knaub, Craig Morgan and Bill Diehl also score wins

YORK HAVEN, PA 3/26/16

Harrisburg’s Gregg Foster helped usher in a new season of racing at Susquehanna Speedway to become the first winner of the new era of racing under the Scott Gobrecht/Kolten Gouse banner.

Foster held off repeated challenges from Kevin Nouse to score the opening night 25-lap Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman feature win Saturday at the York Haven oval.

It marked the first competitive night of action at the York County track under the new management as a nice size crowd came out to see all of the off-season changes to the facility as well as all of the action on the new racing surface.

Other winners on opening night included Dover’s Gene Knaub in the 358 Late Models, Halifax’s Craig Morgan in the Street Stocks and defending series champ Bill Diehl of Craley, PA was the ServiceMaster Clean Central PA Legends winner.

Foster started on the front row of the 25-lap Super Sportsman feature and only momentarily lost the point during the early stages of the race despite battle throttle issues.

Foster was able to keep Mechanicsburg’s Kevin Nouse at bay to secure the win aboard his American Legion Dept. of Pennsylvania RPM Chassis No. 32.

Nouse came home in the runner-up spot with Newville’s Russ Mitten earning the Hard Charger award after starting back in the 15th spot and finishing third.

Fourth went to Newville’s Devin Beidel with Marysville’s Kenny Edkin rounding out the top five finishers.

Sixth through tenth were 18th starting Timmie Barrick, Rich Eichelberger, Scott Geesey, Jay Fannasy and Tony Jackson.

Heat races for the 31 Super Sportsman were won by Mike Enders, Scott Dellinger and Rick Barr with Davey Walsh topping the consolation.

Gene Knaub continued his domination in the 358 late model ranks as he opened the Susquehanna season with a victory in the 20-lap feature over Jake Jones, Steve Billet, Randy Christine, Jr. and Justin Ehrhart. Knaub started fourth and took control from Jones on the fifth lap.

Christine and Chase Billet were late model heat winners with 20 cars pitside.

Despite starting fourth, Craig Morgan led every lap to win the Street Stock feature, taking the checkered flag over Jasen Geesaman, Eddie Richards, Ryan Smith and Jim Palm.

Heats for the 28 cars were won by Jason Townsend, Eddie Richards and Ryan Smith.

Defending Central PA Legends champion Bill Diehl was back in winning form as he came away with the win in that division’s feature event, defeating Lucas Montgomery, Chad Earnst, Travis McClelland and Justin Mitchell. Diehl led laps 2 through 20 but his win came in a near photo finish over Montgomery.

Heats for the 23 Legends went to McClelland, Harlon Leppo and Mitchell.

Susquehanna Speedway returns to action Saturday, April 2 at 6PM with a three-division program of Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman, 358 Late Models and Street Stocks.

Aaron Ott Wires For Sprints, Garlock Claims UFO Semi-Lates

Port Royal pits packed with 102 cars

3/26/16

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Some 102 race cars jammed the Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night as the UFO Super Late Models kicked off their 2016 series in a clash of the late model titans that saw Rochester Mills’ Gregg Satterlee prevail in an action packed event for the $3,000 payday.

In the UFO Semi-Late Model main, Rance Garlock took the lead from Eric Irvin and then held off Kyle Lee for the $1,000 victory.

And East Berlin’s Aaron Ott wired the field for the victory going away in the 25-lap 410 sprint car main, leaving the rest of the field to fight for second place.

A star-laden field of 42 UFO Super Late Models entered action for the series kickoff with amazing drives to the front by the likes of Mason Zeigler, Jason Covert and Kyle Hardy turned in during the four heat races.

Dylan Yoder set a new 12-lap track record in the third heat only to have that mark eclipsed in the fourth qualifier by Gregg Satterlee.

And that set up the 35-lap UFO main event with Mike Altobelli and Satterlee drawing the front row for the start.

With Satterlee on the front row, the event could have threatened to be a run away but drivers like Zeigler, Covert, Andy Haus and Austin Hubbard had other ideas.

Satterlee took the lead at the beginning over Altobelli and saw his pace slowed for the first time on the eighth lap for debris with Covert and Zeigler in fourth and fifth.

Covert jumped to third on the restart and took second on the 10th tour and Zeigler followed into third on the 13th tour.

Zeigler got the better of Covert at the new green and was chasing Satterlee for the lead when Dylan Yoder came up with a flat tire with 18 laps recorded.

Satterlee was chased by Zeigler, Covert, Austin Hubbard and Haus for the return to action.

And it was action that ensued as Zeigler muscled into the lead over Satterlee as racing continued however once getting the lead Satterlee remained within striking distance and with 12 laps to go, Zeigler’s lead was just a scant .086 seconds as the fans rose to their feet.

On the ensuing lap, Satterlee dug himself into the lead again over Zeigler, having control at the line by a miniscule .026 seconds and shortly after regaining control, a two-car tangle at the end of the backchute between Matt Sponaugle and Tom Decker Jr. stopped the race with 11 laps to go.

Covert pounced on the restart, driving back around Zeigler for second as Hubbard, Zeigler and Haus raced hard for third.

And that race for third was so contentious that the pair of Zeigler and Haus made contact in the third corner with eight laps to go, ending with Zeigler withdrawing and Haus continuing as Hubbard took the spot.

That final restart yielded no changes as Satterlee pulled away to the finish to pick up his hard-fought third career win at the oval by 1.658 seconds ahead of Covert, Hubbard, 18th starter Dan Stone and 19th starter Jim Yoder.

Sixth through 10th went to Kyle Hardy, Don Lingo Jr., Chad Hollenbeck, Matt Parks and Mike Lupfer.

All three podium finishers praised the speedway surface for its top to bottom lanes producing an outstanding event with Covert proclaiming the speedway as the best on the East Coast while also noting that fans got the chance to see four or five of the best late model racers in the country all in the same race at the front during the exciting main event.

Four heats went to Covert, Haus, Dylan Yoder and Satterlee with twin B Mains going to Tim Wilson and Hollenbeck.

Aaron Ott led all 25 laps of the 410 sprint car main, entering the rear of the field on just the fourth circuit, chased by Logan Wagner and Ryan Taylor.

At the halfway point, Ott has a 2.004 second lead over Wagner and Doug Esh who was up to third.

With 10 to go Ott’s lead was 4.5 seconds and at the finish he had stretched his advantage to 7.426 seconds, having lapped up to seventh place by the finish.

Esh got by Wagner for second with six laps to go but was more than a half lap behind at the finish.

Wagner was third followed by Greg Hodnett and Taylor.

Sixth through 10th went to Brock Zearfoss, Mark Smith, Mike Wagner, Wayne Dadetto and Curt Stroup.

Heats went to Mike Wagner, Logan Wagner and Taylor.

Rance Garlock took the lead from Eric Irvin on the seventh lap of the 25-lap UFO semi late model main after losing control from the pole at the beginning.

Garlock saw the machine of eighth starter Kyle Lee drive into second with 11 laps to go and close in for the lead but Garlock was able to hold on for the win by .332 seconds.

Irvin settled for third followed by Ralph Morgan and Dillan Stake.

Sixth through 10th went to Todd Snook, Andy Friese, Tim Krape, Grant Adams and Nathan Lasalle.

Four heats were taken by Stake, Garlock, Lee and Morgan. Tom Krape took the consolation race.

LINCOLN SPEEDWAY

Abbottstown, PA

2016 SPRINT SPRING CHAMPIONSHIP

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Saturday, April 2, 2016 (7 PM) - 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints, and Central PA Legends

Saturday, April 9, 2016 (7 PM) - 410 Sprints, Super Sportsman, and Street Stocks

KAHNE SCORES FIRST CAREER LINCOLN WIN IN 410 SPRINT SPRING CHAMPIONSHIP;

Chris Arnold holds off Matt Campbell to claim season opener for 358 sprints

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 3/26/16 – NASCAR star Kasey Kahne showed ‘em how it’s done at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

Kahne, making a rare appearance in the Pigeon Hills, made the most of his weekend off by out-dragging Lincoln point leader and polesitter Brian Montieth to the first turn and leading every lap of Lincoln’s $5,000-to-win Spring Championship for 410 sprint cars.

Despite mid-race challenges from Montieth, Kahne crossed the finish line of the non-stop 30-lap race 1.25 seconds ahead of Lincoln’s point leader.

“I think I saw Montieth on the inside off of turn four lap about halfway, so I went to the bottom for a couple of laps. I just didn’t feel like I was slowing down quite enough on the exit of four, so I went back to the top and then cutting to the middle and I felt better doing that. The lapped cars were quick, too. They start them back there, but there was nowhere to go, and they’re tough to pass.”

Kahne drove flawlessly through lapped traffic from lap ten on, and the strong field of sprinters all finished the race.

“It feels good to get a win,” said Kahne in front of a delirious crowd, “Lincoln Speedway is a tough track and Pennsylvania is a tough group of racers. It’s a great crowd for early in the season. It’s great to be here Easter weekend.”

“We had a great car, and kept making it better. Factory Kahne shocks were really hooked up,” continued Kahne, “I don’t get a chance to thank the sponsors that support my World of Outlaw teams, but we have Great Clips, Sage Fruit, Ollie’s Bargain Outlet, and Razerback Professional Tools. Rob Cappetta right here in Pennsylvania builds the best engines, and Ti22 Chassis. It’s a big group that puts a lot into it. And Lee Stauffer from PA (crew chief for Brad Sweet) was here to help out tonight.”

“We picked up a lot of speed in the last six months. My car is set up similar to Sweet and Daryn Pittman’s cars, and it was pretty quick tonight. It’s great to be able to lean on those guys. I talked to Daryn on the phone today. He’s done really well at this place. I got a good group of guys and it’s really good to win.”

“It feels good to get a win,” said Kahne, “I’m really happy with the crowd that came out. What Lincoln does with the Dirt Classic each year is really cool.”

Kahne started on the outside pole after timing third fastest and Lucas Wolfe drew a number four pill for the inversion at the front of the field.

Montieth ran second the entire way, with Wolfe crossing third and seventh-starting Danny Dietrich and Ryan Smith completing the top five. Rounding out the top ten were Freddie Rahmer, Adam Wilt, Jim Siegel, Cory Haas, and 18th-starting JJ Grasso rounding out the top ten.

Fast time in time trials over the 29 sprinters was set by Wolfe with a one-lap time of 13.132 seconds (102.802 MPH). Heats for the 410 sprints were won by Montieth, Wilt, and Danny Dietrich, with Billy Dietrich winning the consolation.

Dillsburg’s Chris Arnold ended a battle royale with Matt Campbell to score the opening night win in the 358 sprint car feature.

Arnold started on the outside of the front row and led the firsts 13 laps before third-starting Matt Campbell took the lead in wheel-to-wheel racing from laps 14 to 17. But Arnold was not to be denied, dropping to the inside to reclaim the lead on turn four of lap 18. He held Campbell off over the final two laps to claim the win by a carlength.

Third through fifth were Adrian Shaffer, polesitter David Holbrook, and Troy Wagaman, Jr.

Heats for the 32 “358” sprints were won by Campbell, Doug Hammaker, and Arnold, with Tyler Esh winning the consolation.

Defending Lincoln champ Hammaker was caught up in a five-car front stretch crash in the third attempt to start the race, and was credited with a 21st place finish.

Lincoln Speedway switches to a 7 PM start time next weekend, Saturday, April 2nd, with the first three-division show of the season featuring the 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints, and Central PA Legends. Gates will open at 5 PM.

Hodnett Claims Redemption In Williams Grove Sprints, Cosner Scores Super Lates

3/25/16

Mechanicsburg – Greg Hodnett claimed redemption in a big way on Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway after losing the sprint car season opener last week due to mechanical difficulty.

And in the super late model feature Matt Cosner of Cumberland, Md., scored his first ever Williams Grove feature win worth $2,000 after holding off last week’s winners Gregg Satterlee.

Brock Zearfoss took the lead from the pole of the 25-lap sprint car main over Brent Marks.

The race pace was slowed only once, on the third lap for a stopped Dave Jones and Hodnett was fifth for the restart.

Marks steadily tracked down leader Zearfoss and got himself into a battle for the lead amid traffic as the race approached the halfway point.

And in the meantime, Hodnett got himself into the fray with a two-car pass of Ryan Smith and Aaron Ott on the fifth circuit.

So as the front duo raced each other for the lead, Hodnett was able to track them down and get by Marks for second with 10 away and then put Zearfoss away on the 12th lap.

A lap later however Zearfoss withdrew after getting passed by Marks and as Hodnett worked traffic, Marks began tracking him down, quickly taking a .721 second lead down to a .393 second advantage with nine laps to go.

And that .393 second advantage turned into the lead on the 17th tour as Marks flew to the the outside of Hodnett for the lead to pull down in front as the pair raced onto the backchute with a bit of contact that saw Hodnett wiggle after a swipe of his front wing.

But Hodnett was far from done as he was keeping Marks within reach at the five to go mark and then as Marks worked traffic with the lead, Hodnett pounced to his outside in the fourth corner to take a scant. 145 second lead on the 22nd tour only after the pair glanced off of one another as they neared the line.

And this time after Hodnett got the lead he opened up enough breathing room to seal the victory, his 61st at the historic oval, worth $3,800.

All the while during the final five laps, 14th starter Brian Montieth was challenging the pair of leaders making the race to the finish an electric one however Montieth would settle for third.

Aaron Ott was fourth followed by Ryan Smith.

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

Heats went to Mark Smith, Haas and Wolfe with Esh taking the consolation race.

Cosner took the lead from Bryan Bernheisel on the fifth tour of the 25-lap super late model main to run to the win but he had to do so while staying ahead of Gregg Satterlee.

After scoring a win last week during opening night, Satterlee started eighth in the field and was up to fourth with six away.

He got by Bernheisel for second on the eighth lap and then spent the remainder of the distance trying to figure out how to get by Cosner.

After running him down, Satterlee searched various lines repeatedly, trying to find an avenue to make a pass but Cosner was flawless to the checkered flag.

Bernheisel settled for third followed by Jim Yoder and Dylan Yoder.

Sixth through 10th went to Kenny Pettyjohn, Gene Knaub, Rick Singleton , Gary Stuhler and Mason Zeigler.

Heats went to Dylan Yoder and Singleton.

BRAD MCCLELLAND: A TRUE CHAMPION
McClelland Gives Back to Local Racing Community

HANOVER, PA (3/25/2016) – They say retirement is a time for reflection and relaxation. For Brad McClelland, part of that might be true, but the Westminster, Maryland, native isn’t ready to leave the racing world behind just yet. With thirty-four years of racing experience, ten championships, and one hundred thirty-three total wins, McClelland knew he had more to give to the local racing community. He decided to do so by helping other drivers.

McClelland, who is currently a welder and fabricator at the family owned and operated B&D Truck Hoist, communicated with Trail-Way Speedway owners and promoters Brad and Perry Hostetter during the winter months and came up with a great idea to give back to younger drivers and those new to the 358 Sprint Car division. McClelland will be available at Trail-Way Speedway for the April 3, 2016, open practice and also for a few of the 358 Sprint Car races at the beginning of the season. From set up, gearing, tires and general racing guidance, McClelland is open to any questions that race teams and drivers might have.

McClelland’s B&D Truck Hoist is also partnering with Trail-Way Speedway for the 2016 358 Sprint Car Shootout. B&D Truck Hoist will be sponsoring the “Hard Luck” and “Hard Charger” awards for the Lincoln/Trail-Way 358 Sprint Shootout.

Trail-Way Speedway is extremely grateful to Brad McClelland for supporting the 358 Sprint Car division for numerous years. His time behind the wheel, and now his guidance from outside of the race car, are invaluable, We’re proud to have McClelland and his family as part of our racing community.

Gates for the April 3 practice session will open at Noon with practice beginning at 1:00 p.m. The first 358 Sprint Car race of the season will be Friday, April 8. Gates for that event open at 5:30 p.m. with heats scheduled to begin at 7:45 p.m.

Marks Passes Cisney For Port Royal Sprints Win, Haus Goes Two For Two In Super Lates

3/19/16

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Brent Marks of Myerstown took the lead from Dylan Cisney late in the event to pick up the 410 sprint car feature Saturday night at Port Royal Speedway.

Elsewhere, in the 22-lap super late model main, Hamburg’s Andy Haus made it two in a row in the division to put his mark on the early season.

Cisney and Doug Esh started on the front row of the 25-lap sprint car main and Cisney jumped into the lead at the start.

The first 10 laps of the race went non-stop with Marks muscling by Esh for second on the sixth tour.

Just prior to that, Danny Dietrich pulled into the pit area under his own power and then just a lap before the lap 10 yellow, Aaron Ott also dropped out of the race.

Marks took a shot at Cisney on the restart while opening day winner Greg Hodnett tried to get under Esh for third but the running order was still the same with 12 down when a final caution regrouped the field for a stopped Ryan Taylor.

Marks again took a stab for the lead at the new green as did Hodnett for third and this time Hodnett came up with a run that would net him third spot with 10 laps to go.

As the race got to lapped traffic with five to go, Cisney found Marks close enough to make a bid and as the leader negotiated the backmarkers, Marks used a low move in the first corner to take control with three laps to go.

Cisney made a valiant effort to go back out in front by pulling alongside Marks as the pair shot onto the backchute but Marks was stronger, surging into firm command as the pair hit the third corner.

And from there, Marks took the win, the sixth of his career at the track by 1.507 seconds.

Hodnett was third followed by Esh and TJ Stutts.

Sixth through 10th went to Brock Zearfoss, Mike Wagner, Steve Buckwalter, Mark Smith and Logan Wagner.

Heats went to Cisney, Esh and Marks.

Haus started on the pole of the super late model main and wiped up the field for the victory worth $1,500.

Last week, Haus took the checkers in the season opener whiel racing to hold off a closing Gregg Satterlee but this week his win would come uncontested.

His pace was only slowed on the seventh tour and at that time he had built up a 3.6 second lead over Mike Altobelli.

Fifth starter Kyle Hardy took third from Tim Smith Jr. with a lap to go, forcing Smith to cross in fourth with Rick Singleton finishing fifth.

The victory was Haus’ sixth at the historic oval, coming by a margin of 7.782 seconds.

Sixth through 10th went to Tim Wilson, Jason Covert, Mike Lupfer, Dylan Yoder and Nick Dickson.

Heats went to Andrew Yoder, Hardy and Singleton.

Lafferty And Satterlee Open Williams Grove Speedway Season With Wins

3/18/16

Mechanicsburg – Rick Lafferty of Pennington, NJ., scored the opening day sprint car feature at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, scoring $3,800 for the payday after being pressured for the lead by Freddie Rahmer and having been passed for the win by Greg Hodnett.

In the super late model main, Gregg Satterlee of Rochester Mills etched his name in the Williams Grove record books for the first time as a winner in the division.

Lafferty started on the pole of the 25-lap 410 sprint car main and was followed by Rahmer for the first 16 laps before seventh starter Greg Hodnett took the second spot away.

The first 17 circuits of the event went non-stop before Lucas Wolfe, who had run third up until that point, rolled to a stop bringing out the races first caution flag period.

Brian Montieth had charged from 11th up to fifth for the restart and was in the middle of a hard battle with Danny Dietrich when he came up with a right rear flat on the 19th lap, slowing the pace again.

Hodnett then made good on his second restart chances by driving underneath Lafferty for the top spot in the first and second turns to take control with five laps to go.

But then seemingly as quickly as he took the lead, Hodnett suddenly slowed on the 21st lap and pulled pitside, turning the race back over to Lafferty.

By that time, Lafferty had just four laps to go to hold on to the win with Rahmer still chasing in second however Rahmer came up .899 seconds short of his first-ever Williams Grove win at the line.

Dietrich rode home third followed by Aaron Ott and Steve Buckwalter.

Sixth through 10th went to Cory Haas, Doug Esh, Brent Marks, Robbie Stillwaggon and Austin Hogue.

Heats went to Montieth, Buckwalter and Stillwaggon with Brock Zearfoss scoring the consolation race.

Huntingdon’s Rick Singleton took the lead at the start of the 25-lap super late model main over fourth starter Satterlee.

The pace was slowed with six laps down for a stopped Kyle Hardy and Satterlee applied pressure for control on the restart however Singleton proved hard to overtake.

It wasn’t until the ten-to-go point that Satterlee was finally able to find enough muscle to get by Singleton.

He went inside the veteran leader for control while racing through the third and fourth turns to get command but then found his pace slowed with four laps to go.

And Singleton stunned on the restart by pulling alongside Satterlee for the win as the pair crossed the line with three laps to go.

But Satterlee hung tough as the pair pulled into the first corner and drove back out in front for the victory worth $2,000.

Singleton settled for second followed by Gene Knaub.

Dylan Yoder started 18th in the field and motored to the front, getting by the cars of Matt Cosner and Bryan Bernheisel on the final restart to finish fourth with Cosner ending up fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Bryan Bernheisel, Gary Stuhler, Coleby Frye, Jim Bernheisel and Trent Brenneman.

Heats went to Gene Knaub and Bryan Bernheisel.

Williams Grove Opening Day Presented By Dieffenbach’s Potato Chips Is March 18

Prestigious season opener showcases 410 sprints and super late models

3/13/16

Mechanicsburg – Williams Grove Speedway is set to return to racing in just one week, on Friday March 18 at 7:30 pm when it hosts the Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint cars on Opening Day presented by Dieffenbach’s Potato Chips.

Opening Day presented by Dieffenbach’s Potato Chips will also include racing competition for the super late models.

The super stock cars rarely get to compete at Williams Grove these days and the show for the mighty super lates is highly anticipated.

Adult general admission for the prestigious season opener is set at just $15 with youth ages 13 – 20 admitted for just $10. Ages 12 and under are always admitted for FREE at Williams Grove Speedway.

Dieffenbach’s Potato Chips of Womelsdorf will be providing samples of their original kettle cook potato chips to opening day fans at their hospitality tent located in the infield.

Arynne Moody, the newly crowned Ms. Motorsports, will be on hand for the big season opener as well.

The Williams Grove portion of the 50/50 ticket sales will be donated to the Wounded Warrior Project.

Last season, Danny Dietrich claimed the March 27 opener for the 410 sprints at Williams Grove before going on to pick up three more checkered flags at the track during the season.

And in last year’s opening day super late model main, Nick Dickson of McVeytown wired the field for a 20-lap victory over Gary Stuhler.

Since 1939 when Tommy Hinnershitz won the inaugural race at the famed facility, so many highly recognized names and even some not so much have scored the prestigious first Williams Grove race of the year.

Well-knowns or on their way up the ladder at the time of their victories were the likes of Jan Opperman, AJ Foyt, Ted Horn and Hinnershitz.

Kasey Kahne, destined for bigger and better things in todays NASCAR arena, took the opener back in 2000.

But perhaps lesser-known at the time or even unique names like Kevin Collins, Brian Paulus, Marlett Naill and Gig Stephens have also taken that famous first checkered flag of the year at Williams Grove.

Williams Grove Speedway will return to action on March 25 at 7:30 pm with another program of 410 sprints and super late models with the late model show waged as a Late Model Speedweek qualifying event.

Adult general admission for the March 25 show is again set at just $15 with youth ages 13 – 20 admitted for just $10.

BILLY DIETRICH CLAIMS SECOND CAREER LINCOLN SPEEDWAY WIN IN FINAL AFTERNOON SHOW OF SEASON

Night Racing Begins Next Weekend, March 19th, with 410 Sprints & 358 Late Models

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 3/12/16 – It’s not uncommon for the name Dietrich to be in victory lane at Lincoln Speedway. But this time it was older brother Billy Dietrich who came out on top of the 25-lap 410 sprint car feature Saturday afternoon as his younger brother and former track champ Danny crossed under the checkered flag in fifth spot.

“Danny Who?,” said a jubilant Billy in victory lane after track announcer Wayne Harper mentioned he kicked his brothers butt. “I can say that because I work with him but it goes both ways, trust me.”

Dietrich also knows how to impress a new sponsor, Ramsey Construction who joined the team earlier in the week and was on hand to witness Dietrich’s second career Lincoln Speedway 410 Sprint car win.

“We didn’t even get the stickers on, which sucks, but he’s here today and at least he got to see it,” the Aspers driver said about his new sponsor. “We’re glad to have him on board with all of the other great sponsors we have on the car. “

Dietrich lined up third and quickly took the second spot as polesitter Glenndon Forsythe grabbed early lead. While Dietrich chased Forsythe, several great battles were taking shape between Shane Hoff and Kyle Moody and Danny Dietrich and Cory Haas.

Dietrich pulled alongside Forsythe going down the backstretch as the frontrunners split the lapped car of Brandon Noel in turn four with Dietrich emerging as the race leader.

The only red flag of the day came out on lap nine when Brandon Rahmer got into the second turn catch fence after contact with another car.

Billy Dietrich set the pace as 5-time defending track champion Brian Montieth, who started 13th, moved in to battle Danny Dietrich and Cory Haas with Montieth taking fifth place on lap 12 and moved into fourth a lap later.

Dietrich caught the rear of the field with about eight laps to go as Forsythe, Hoff and Montieth quickly closed.

Montieth continued his charge, taking third from Hoff with 20 laps complete and tried several times to get under Forsythe but was unable to make the pass.

Dietrich held on in traffic to capture the $3,200 payday to become the third different winner in as many races so far this season in the Pigeon Hills oval.

"I drove as hard as I could and under that red I thought I’m just gonna give it 16 more laps as hard as I can,” said the second generation driver and son of former Lincoln great and track champion Dan Dietrich. “I got burnt last year on the last lap so I’m not gonna lie, I caught the lapped cars and I thought I’ll be damned so I’m just gonna run into them if I have to.”

Dietrich took the win ahead of Forsythe, point leader Montieth with Shane Hoff crossing fourth for his career best finish. Fifth went to Danny Dietrich ahead of Cory Haas, Adam Wilt, Gerard McIntyre, Jr., Kyle Moody and Alan Krimes.

Heats for the 21 sprint cars on hand were won by Brandon Rahmer, Gerard McIntyre, Jr. and Austin Hogue.

Lincoln Speedway switches to evening racing next Saturday night, March 19th, at 6 PM with the 410 Sprints being joined by the 358 Late Models. Gates open at 4 PM.

Hodnett And Haus Open Port Royal Season With Wins

3/12/16

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Greg Hodnett inherited the lead from Lucas Wolfe with 11 laps to go to pick up the $3,500 payday in the Port Royal Speedway season opener for sprint cars on Saturday evening.

Hamburg’s Andy Haus proved victorious in the super late model main, holding off a surging Greg Satterlee to pick up the victory worth $2,000.

Second starter Danny Dietrich took the lead at the start of the 25-lap sprint car feature with polesitter Aaron Ott in tow.

But the first of numerous caution and red flags would slow the pace on just the second lap when Logan Wagner clouted the first turn wall. Under the yellow, Ott withdrew with a collapsing top wing.

Dietrich had Wolfe on his tail for the restart and gave way to the defending track champion on the fourth circuit as he began slipping backwards before blowing a right rear tire with six down, slowing the race for another yellow.

This placed Greg Hodnett on Wolfe’s tail but only a lap could again be scored before another yellow forced a red for refueling, resetting the field.

Hodnett was all over Wolfe during green flag action but would see his advance attempts continually held back by ensuing caution flags with eight down and then another red with 10 laps away.

The red unfurled for a violent and scary three-car crash as the trio of Brent Marks, Mike Erdley and Doug Esh all raced onto the frontstretch with Marks and Erdley vying for fifth.

Erdley’s car flipped into the outside fence before catching fire.

Fortunately, all three drivers avoided injury.

Wolfe pulled away from Hodnett when action resumed and appeared headed to the victory with 11 laps to go when he snapped the right rear wheel off of his car as he set it into the first corner, somehow saving the mount from disaster but giving up the victory.

Hodnett had TJ Stutts following in second but the Thomasville speedster pulled away for the 43rd win of his career at the oval and his second there in opening day action.

Stutts finished 6.124 seconds behind in second followed by Mike Wagner, Dylan Cisney and Curt Stroup.

Sixth through 10th went to Mark Smith, Wayne Dadetto, Ryan Taylor, Steve Buckwalter and Rick Lafferty.

Heats went to Wolfe, Stutts and Hodnett with Wolf setting a new eight-lap track record of 2:02.596.

Andy Haus muscled the lead away from Jim Yoder on the 19th tour of the super late model main after Yoder had led from the beginning of the event.

Haus got by Kyle Hard for second on the second tour and chased Yoder through traffic for the victory.

The races only caution flag unfurled with three laps to go for debris.

Greg Satterlee was on the move during the second half of the race, making a two car pass of Coleby Frye and Chad Hollenbeck on the 16th tour to set his sights on the leaders.

He then motored by Yoder for third on the 19th tour and Hardy for second with a lap to go but ran out of time to challenge Haus for the win, crossing .654 seconds behind at the finish.

Hardy was third followed by Frye and Yoder.

Sixth through 10th went to Hollenbeck, Gene Knaub, Greg Roberson, Dylan Yoder and Nick Dickson.

Heats went to Knaub, Dave Zona and Hollenbeck with Tim Gray taking the consolation race.

Port Royal Speedway returns to action on March 19 with another dual division card of 410 sprints and super late models at 6 pm before March 26 gives way to an early season late model lovers delight when the UFO Late Models hit town along with the 410 sprints on Kids Easter Night.

The UFO 358 late models are also on the agenda.

Port Royal Speedway Opens 2016 Season March 12, Super Sprints & Super Lates On Tap

Free schedule magnets to first 500 general admission fans!

3/6/16

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Port Royal Speedway will open the 2016 racing season this Saturday, March 12 at 6 pm with a twin bill of Weikert’s Livestock 410 sprints paying $3,500 to win and super late models paying $2,000 to win.

General admission gates will open at 4 pm with pit gates opening at 3 pm.

Adult general admission for the first show of the season is $15 with students ages 12 – 18 priced at JUST $7.

The first 500 fans through the general admission gate will receive a FREE 2016 schedule magnet, sponsored by Juniata Beverage.

In last year’s season lidlifer on April 4, East Berlin’s Aaron Ott won his first ever 410 sprint main at the historic oval while Mike Lupfer began what would be his domination of the early season by claiming the first three features in a row.

Ott stayed in front of Nate Snyder and Lucas Wolfe for the victory last year.

He entered the rear of the field on the sixth lap with Snyder, Wolfe and Logan Wagner in pursuit.

As the race headed toward the halfway point of the 25 circuit main, the front three cars all drew within striking distance of one another when Wolfe pulled the trigger on Snyder for second deep in the first corner.

In a hair-raising move, Snyder squeezed between the outside turn two wall and the right side of Wolfe’s car in order to slingshot back into second but the fracas between the two allowed Ott to open up a little distance to win by 1.654 seconds.

Mike Lupfer drew the pole for the start of the 22-lap super late model main and outraced Coleby Frye for the lead as the pair ran down the backstretch to complete the first circuit.

Frye raced Lupfer hard back to the line but Lupfer had the lead and it was a control he would not relinquish for the rest of the distance as he pretty much annihilated the field in the non-stop affair.

Lucas Wolfe and Lupfer are the defending division champions.

Rick Lafferty kicked off the decade at Port Royal in 2010 with an opening day sprint car victory followed by Blane Heimbach in 2011, Greg Hodnett in 2012, Dave Blaney in 2013 and Blane Heimbach again in 2014.

Port Royal Speedway returns to action on March 19 with another dual division card of 410 sprints and super late models at 6 pm before March 26 gives way to an early season late model lovers delight when the UFO Late Models hit town along with the 410 sprints on Kids Easter Night.

The UFO 358 late models are also on the agenda.

LINCOLN SPEEDWAY

Abbottstown, PA

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Saturday, March 19: 410 Sprints and 358 Late Models 6PM

BRIAN MONTIETH LEADS FLAG-TO-FLAG TO PICK UP LINCOLN CHECKERS;

One More Afternoon Sprint-only Show Next Saturday, March 12th, Before Night Racing Begins on March 19th

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 3/6/16 – Brian Montieth said he can’t wait for night racing. But the five-time defending track champion was near flawless in his flag-to-flag win in Sunday’s 25-lap 410 Sprint car feature at Lincoln Speedway.

It was the second straight week that Lincoln Speedway officials utilized a Sunday rain date, both in which Sunday was the better day for early season racing.

Most figured the race was won during the redraw for the feature and Montieth admitted he won the lottery.

“We won the lottery today, we started on the front row,” the Phoenixville driver stated after earning the $3,200 payday for the Jerry Parrish owned race team. “That was pretty much the deal today. I’ll be glad when we go night racing because the dirty air with these new wicker bills and stuff, it’s a mess. So I can’t wait for nights.”

Alan Krimes and Montieth led the field to the green flag as Montieth gained the edge exiting the fourth turn to lead the first lap.

Montieth’s Auto Locator No. 21 caught the rear of the field by the fifth lap as Krimes closed the gap and the two were actually side by side at the line on both laps eight and nine.

Adam Wilt got by opening day winner Greg Hodnett for third with 10 laps complete but Hodnett put an outside move on Wilt a lap later to regain the spot.

Montieth caught a break on lap 12 when seventh-running Billy Dietrich spun in turn two.

Hodnett got around Krimes for the runner-up spot on lap 17 and quickly ran down Montieth, who again, was working through traffic.

Hodnett was on Montieth’s bumper as the pair came down the front stretch to complete lap 22 when Cole Duncan’s car lost power directly in front of the leaders. Both drivers, along with two other cars running at the rear of the field, but just in front of the leaders, all took evasive action to miss Duncan.

“I shut my eyes and I came out of it,’ joked Montieth about the late race incident. “It was close. It was a lot closer than I wanted it to be.”

With an open track following the yellow, Montieth was home free as he drove away to capture his 51st career win in the Pigeon Hills and first of 2016.

“You can’t ever count Greg out,” he added. “That’s why when I was back in lapped traffic, I figured I’ll just drive around and hope for a caution. Everything fell into place for us tonight and that’s why we’re here.”

Hodnett settled for the runner-up spot trailed by Krimes, Freddie Rahmer and Wilt with Austin Hogue, Jim Siegel, Robbie Kendall, Danny Dietrich and Cory Haas completing the top 10 finishers.

Heats for the 26 410 Sprints were won by Freddie Rahmer, Billy Dietrich and Glenndon Forsythe. Mark Smith won the consolation.

Lincoln Speedway returns to action next Saturday, March 12th, with another 410 Sprints only program beginning at 2PM and gates opening at noon. There will be an open practice for other divisions following the feature event. And as has been the case for the first two races of the season, Lincoln Speedway will use a rain date the following day Sunday, March 13th if needed.

GREG HODNETT WIRES FIELD FOR SECOND CONSECUTIVE ICEBREAKER 30 WIN IN LINCOLN SPEEDWAY SEASON OPENER

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 2/28/16 - Six weeks removed from the largest snowstorm to hit Central Pennsylvania, Lincoln Speedway wasn’t fazed as the Icebreaker 30 for 410 Sprints officially kicked off the dirt track season Sunday afternoon in front of a very big crowd who enjoyed sunny skies and temperatures around 60 degrees.

And on the race track, it was Spring Grove racer Greg Hodnett leading all 30 laps to capture his second consecutive win in the Icebreaker 30.

Aboard the Heffner Racing Enterprises owned, No 27, Hodnett took advantage of good starting spots, kept out of trouble on the race track and earned the $4,000 payday for his 30th career win in the Pigeon Hills.

“I still really struggle here, we just took advantage of some good starting spots today,” said the 2015 Central Pennsylvania Sprint Car Champion. “We are very, very fortunate to be up here today because it’s a tough race track. There are a lot of good competitors here and it’s a very technical race track, which is why Fred (Rahmer) always went good here.”

While it may have looked easy for Hodnett out front, that wasn’t the case for many other drivers in the field as the event saw one red flag, seven cautions and a fuel stop.

Adam Wilt and Hodnett lined up on the front row and two straight times saw Hodnett grab the lead in turn one only to have cautions realign the field.

On the third restart, Aaron Ott and Bill Jones, Jr. both flipped in turn one, Neither driver was injured.

Hodnett once again outgunned Wilt on ensuing restart as Ohio invader Cole Duncan motored into the second spot.

Four cautions during laps three through seven kept the field slow but defending track champion Brian Montieth was blasting his way through the field after starting 11th.

A fuel stop was needed with nine laps complete as Danny Dietrich, Glenndon Forsythe and David Quackenbush crashed in turn three.

Following the fuel stop, Montieth took fourth spot as he continued his charge to the front as Hodnett worked through slower traffic at the rear of the field as Duncan, Wilt and Montieth were in a great battle.

Duncan lost the runner-up spot on a lap 20 restart as Wilt and Montieth drove by but Duncan’s great run ended with a spin on lap 22.

Hodnett was home free over the final eight laps as he picked up the win aboard the Lelands.com/Trone Outdoor/Eagle Steel sponsored sprint.

“I couldn’t run real hard because it would just spin but I figured it would be real tough for those guys to get around me,” Hodnett stated. “So I just kind of cruised and felt like I could go harder if I needed to or felt pressure. We came here way different than we would ever would have before. We wanted to try something totally different and it worked out okay.. I think we’ll come back with it next time.”

Wilt, of York settled for the runner-up spot trailed by Phoenixville’s Montieth with New Oxford racers Gerard McIntyre, Jr. and Jim Siegel completing the top five.

Rounding out the top 10 finishers were Alan Krimes, Chase Dietz, Freddie Rahmer, Danny Dietrich and Kyle Moody.

Heats for the 24 410 sprint cars were won by Scott Fisher, Brian Montieth and Gerard McIntyre, Jr.

Lincoln Speedway returns to action next Saturday, March 5th with another 410 Sprints only program beginning at 2PM. Gates open at noon. A Sunday, March 6th rain date will be used if needed.

RACING XTRAVAGANZA OVERFLOWS WITH SUCCESS; DATES ANNOUNCED FOR 2017

 By Brad Vores for Racing Xtravaganza

Race fans from all across the mid -state area filled the Utz Arena at the York Expo Center for the first annual BAPS Auto Paints and Supply Racing Xtravaganza show Saturday and Sunday, February 6-7.

The Expo Center was filled with 120 racing vehicles, ranging from 410 Sprints to go karts and 50 vendors lined the aisles of Racing Xtravaganza as the show rejuvenated the off season racing excitement in the hotbed for dirt track racing.

“I think it was fantastic that our whole sport rallied around this show,” Scott Gobrecht, owner of Racing Xtravaganza stated. “To fill the place with 120 race cars isn’t the easiest thing to do. It’s a testament to the car owners and drivers that were able to get their race cars ready in time for the show. The vendors did well and we were able to build a relationship with them going forward and the obvious turnout of fans shows just how passionate the fans are in this area for racing. Pretty much every aspect of the show was very positive and I cannot thank those that helped make the show a success enough.”

Spring Grove, Pennsylvania’s Tianna Weaver won the Charlie’s Repair Service Ms. Racing Xtravaganza Contest on the WeeBee Audio-Video main stage. Weaver is a York College graduate with a Bachelors in Criminal Justice, works full time at Tooling Dynamics and is a field hockey coach at New Oxford Middle School.

Bailey Kress, a 12 year old, sixth grade student won the Charlie’s Repair Service Jr. Miss Racing Xtravaganza contest, also held on the WeeBee Audio-Video main stage. Kress is a competitor in the Go-Karts at Hunterstown Speedway and finished runner--up the past two seasons in the Jr. Miss contest.

The ServiceMaster Clean People’s Choice Award went to the Gary Kauffman Racing owned #48 410 Sprint car driven by Danny Dietrich. The team was presented with the $1,000 top prize.

Judge-voted awards were also presented to a car in each division represented at the show. Awards went to: 410 Sprint--#48 Danny Dietrich; Other Open wheel (358 Sprint)--#4R Tyler Walton; Late Model--#112 owned by Dan Little; Legend Car--#93 Travis McClleland; Stock car--#FOUR Eddie Richards; Classic Car--#09 Ronnie Grove; Vintage Car--#21A Gary Stuhler Maverick; Micro Sprint/Midget--#21 Toby Blumeshine; Quarter Midget--#1M Morgan Miller; Go Karts--#29W Colton Campbell.

The Kids Zone was a huge hit for the future of the sport.

“The kids zone went over real well for kids to do their own thing,” Gobrecht stated. “We have to engage our young fans to get involved and I think we accomplished that as there were a lot of kids having a good time all weekend long.”

Dave Hare was the Meet and Greet emcee and did a great job getting many of the local drivers engaged in conversation during the weekend.

“I think Dave did an incredible job with the drivers that participated in the Meet and Greets and again, I think this really touched many of our young fans as they were able to meet the drivers, get their autographs and this created a lot of excitement for them as well,” Gobrecht added.

Five seminars were presented in the Tom Rumsey, Inc. Seminar Room and all were very well attended and all relevant to the sport.

Title sponsor BAPS Auto Paints and Supply has signed on as title sponsor once again for Racing Xtravaganza with 2017 dates being set as Saturday and Sunday, February 4-5 at the Utz Arena.

Fans can keep up to date with the show by visiting www.racingxtravangza.com.

CENTRAL PA “SHOOTOUT SERIES” TO EXPAND IN 2016

Hanover, PA (1/30/16) – It all began with two racetracks. Hanover’s Trail-Way Speedway and Abbottstown’s Lincoln Speedway decided several years ago to try a 358 Sprint Car Shootout. It was a program that was designed to help both tracks bring in higher car counts while racing for a series payout. The Shootout Series provided an opportunity for many race teams to visit other tracks that normally weren’t on their racing schedules, whether racing for points or just for fun. In an attempt to build on what these two tracks had started, Trail-Way Speedway owners and promoters Brad, Perry and Barry Hostetter have decided to extend the Shootout Series to several other Trail-Way divisions, including the 600 Micro Sprints, Street Stocks/Xtreme Stocks, Limited Stocks/Road Warriors, Hoosier Tire Mid-Atlantic 358 Sprint Cars and the return of the 410 Sprint Cars!

Newly appointed Shootout Series director, Jeremy Mehring, organized the 2015 600 Micro Shootout and was looking for a larger challenge in 2016 by expanding the series to other divisions. Mehring owned and raced a 600 Micro Sprint for several years and wanted to give back to the sport he loved so much.
“I knew the cost of the sport and how much time and effort it takes to race a car weekly, so I wanted to give back to the drivers and race teams that dedicate their time and efforts to our local race tracks.”
Mehring is currently in the process of ironing out sponsor deals and race-day specifics.
“I really thought this would be cool for the fans to see new drivers and also for drivers to travel to new tracks. This is really about expanding our divisions for the enjoyment of our race fans.”

The Shootout Series consists of two to three races per division, wherein each driver accumulates points from their feature finishes at each participating track. The highest point finisher will be crowned “Champion” of their Shootout. Special awards will also be given to other top finishers such as “Hard Charger” and “Hard Luck” awards. Each Shootout Series will award the top five finishers with a cash prize, including for some, sponsored product prizes!

The 2016 Shootout Series begins with the 600 Micro Sprints, who visit Linda’s Speedway on Friday, June 10, then travel to Trail-Way Speedway on Sunday, July 10 (with 410 Sprints), and complete their Shootout at Path Valley Speedway on Saturday, July 16. Trail-Way Speedway Street Stocks will be teaming up with the Susquehanna Speedway Xtreme Stocks for a Shootout Series, which will begin at Susquehanna on Saturday, June 18, and then travel to Trail-Way on Friday, August 12. The Trail-Way Limited Stocks and Susquehanna Road Warriors will also take part in their own Shootout Series, which will start at Trail-Way on Saturday, July 2 (Junk Car Demo), and will finish at Susquehanna on Saturday, July 9.

The Trail-Way Speedway Friday night headliner, Hoosier Tire Mid-Atlantic 358 Sprints, will continue their annual Trail-Way/Lincoln Shootout. Lincoln kicks off the two-race series on Saturday, August 27, and then completes the series at Trail-Way on Friday, September 2.

The 410 Sprint Cars will be returning to Trail-Way Speedway in a three-race Shootout Series with Susquehanna and Lincoln Speedways. The Series will start Saturday, July 9, at Lincoln Speedway and will continue the following night, Sunday, July 10, at Trail-Way Speedway for the 1st Annual Armin Hostetter Memorial. The 410 Shootout Series will conclude on Sunday, July 17, at Susquehanna Speedway.

The Shootout Series is currently looking for additional sponsors who are interested in participation with our Series. You can visit our website trail-wayspeedway.com and click the “Shootout” link on the right to view some of our sponsor ideas!

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Williams Grove, Selinsgrove, and Utica-Rome Speedways, in partnership with the United Racing Club (URC) and Empire Super Sprint (ESS) organizations, announced one of the biggest weekends for 360 sprint car racing in the United States July 29-31 with the inaugural Mid-Atlantic Crown.

More than $80,000 in prize money will be posted for three consecutive nights of 360 sprint car racing at the three aforementioned race tracks located in the northeast this summer. The “Weekend of Money” is expected to draw the best 360 sprint car drivers from all parts of the United States and Canada and will determine an overall champion.

The Mid-Atlantic Crown weekend will kick off Friday, July 29, at the historic Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa., with the annual 360 Nationals paying $4,000 to win. In addition to the special 360 sprint car event at the Grove, drivers will have the opportunity to compete double-duty in a full program of 410 sprint car racing.

Selinsgrove Speedway, located in Selinsgrove, Pa., where 360 sprint cars are the weekly headline open wheel division, will present the 16th Annual Mach 1 Chassis National Open paying $10,000 to win Saturday, July 30, on Night Two of the Mid-Atlantic Crown weekend.

Following the two events in central Pennsylvania, the Mid-Atlantic Crown moves north to the Empire State at the Utica-Rome Speedway in Vernon, N.Y., Sunday, July 31, for the $10,000-to-win Cole Cup, and where the overall Mid-Atlantic Crown championship will be determined.

"The Empire Super Sprints are honored to be a part of what we hope will be an historic and annual weekend,” said Dean Reynolds, Vice President of Empire Super Sprints. “Never before have you seen three tracks work together in putting on their biggest 360 events all in one weekend. Not only is there a lucrative amount of money to win at each but if a team just makes the three A-Mains they will take home well over $1,000. That just shows tremendous support from all three great facilities. We are very excited!"

“The United Racing Club is excited to be involved with the first Weekend of Money,” said Curt Michael, URC’s defending champion and booking agent. “It's a great thing for 360's when three awesome race tracks can work together along with URC and ESS to bring both the fans and the race teams a very unique high profile weekend. This is something new that hopefully continues to get bigger and better each year.”

A $2,000 point fund for the 360 sprint car weekend spectacular has already been established and is expected to grow in the coming months.

More details related to the first Mid-Atlantic Crown for 360 sprint cars will be released as they become available.

TRAIL-WAY SPEEDWAY GEARS UP FOR 2016 SEASON

Hanover, PA (1/18/16) – With the 2016 racing season around the corner, Hanover’s Trail-Way Speedway is excited to announce an action-packed schedule, a revamped track look, and the return of the 410 Sprint Cars! Trail-Way Speedway will open their 44th consecutive season on Saturday, March 19, with the 600 Micro Sprints, Mason Dixon 270 Micros Sponsored by Lucas Oil, and the Central PA Legends.

A significant change during the off-season was the widening of the speedway surface. This January, Trail-Way Speedway widened the turns and front stretch by several feet. Although each turn is slightly different than the other, all four turns were widened by nearly 10 feet. Turn 2 saw the most significant increase in space and was widened by 14 feet. These changes were made not only to make the track more driver-friendly, but also to give the fans a more exciting race by increasing the driver’s ability to pass.

The Shootout Series will be an exciting addition to the 2016 schedule. Trail-Way Speedway will team up with several different Pennsylvania race tracks to host a Shootout Series, which will tally feature finishing points from each track and offer an additional payout to the top five drivers at the end of the Series. The classes participating in the Shootout Series will be 410 Sprints (Trail-Way, Lincoln, Susquehanna), 358 Sprints (Trail-Way, Lincoln), 600 Micro Sprints (Trail-Way, Linda’s, Path Valley), Limited Stocks/Road Warriors (Trail-Way, Susquehanna), and the Street Stocks/Xtreme Stocks (Trail-Way, Susquehanna).

One of the most notable additions to the 2016 schedule is the first Annual Armin Hostetter Memorial race featuring the 410 Sprint Cars. Last run on July 16, 2006, the 410 Sprint Cars will be part of a three-race Shootout Series beginning at Lincoln Speedway on Saturday, July 9, and will travel a short distance to Trail-Way Speedway the following night, Sunday, July 10. The final race of the 410 Shootout Series will be held at Susquehanna Speedway on Sunday, July 17. Joining the 410 Sprint Cars at Trail-Way Speedway will be the 600 Micro Sprints, who will also be competing in their own Shootout Series. The 600 Micro Sprint Shootout Series will include races at Linda’s Speedway on Friday, June 10, Trail-Way Speedway on Sunday, July 10, and concludes at Path Valley Speedway on Saturday, July 16.

The Hoosier Tire Mid-Atlantic 358 Sprint Car Series will continue to headline Friday night racing at Trail-Way Speedway in 2016. The first of 16 scheduled races will be held on Friday, April 8.

KEVIN GOBRECHT CLASSIC SET FOR MAY 8, 2016 AT SUSQUEHANNA SPEEDWAY

By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

12/27/15 NEWBERRYTOWN, PA

There is no doubt that the 2016 season at Susquehanna Speedway will be one of the most talked about on the local racing scene.

And one of the events that will highlight the first year for new track owner Scott Gobrecht will be presented on Mothers Day, Sunday May 8, 2016 with a raindate of Sunday, May 15, 2016.

It will be the inaugural Kevin Gobrecht Classic for 410 Sprint Cars and will be a special night for not only the Gobrecht family but also for the legions of Kevin Gobrecht fans around Central Pennsylvania.

Affectionately known as the “G-Man”, Gobrecht’s life was cut way too short after sustaining fatal injuries in a sprint car crash in Greenwood, Nebraska on September 24, 1999. He would have been 47 years old on May 2,2016.

Kevin’s memory and legacy will always be remembered and the first annual Kevin Gobrecht Classic will be just another way for friends, family and race fans to do just that.

The event will also be on Mother’s Day and will be a special day for Kevin’s biggest fan, his mother Donna Gobrecht.

Exciting details will be announced leading up to this event but race fans are urged to mark their calendars now for this event which will be one of the highlights of the 2016 racing schedule.

Fans can visit www.sspracing.net for the latest news and upcoming events at the newly owned Susquehanna Speedway.

 

 

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY

ROB TREGO APPOINTED SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY LEAD TECH INSPECTOR

SELINSGROVE, Pa. -- Rob Trego of Mifflinburg has been appointed Selinsgrove Speedway’s lead technical inspector for the 2016 season. Trego will have responsibility for overseeing safety and technical inspections of the speedway’s weekly racing divisions.

“After meeting with Rob about the future of racing at Selinsgrove I was convinced he’s the right person for this job,” said speedway general manager Steve Inch. “He has a wealth of mechanical knowledge and is a good communicator.”

Trego has been involved in auto racing for more than 28 years, including about 20 years of experience as an engine builder. While many of his years in racing have been spent in the stock car pit area, he’s also had ample opportunity to turn the wrenches on sprint cars alongside his brother Rusty Trego, a noted central Pennsylvania sprint car mechanic.

A full-time mechanic by trade, Trego has also helped his sons Darian and Drew come through the go kart racing ranks.

Trego is currently reviewing the speedway’s rulebook with track officials and expects to release minor updates for the 2016 season shortly after January 1, when he will be available to field questions for next season.

The 360 sprint cars, super late models, pro stocks, and roadrunners will be return in 2016. Track officials are in the process of finalizing the 2016 schedule.

Selinsgrove Speedway is scheduled to open Saturday, March 19, with the Race of Champions Icebreaker for big block modifieds.

The All Star Circuit of Champions sprints will make just one appearance at the track next season, on August 19 for the Jack Gunn Memorial.

The United Racing Club 360 c.i. sprints have a healthy five dates inked on the 2016 schedule while the regular Williams Grove HJ Towing & Recovery 358 sprints enjoy 11 total shows on the agenda.

June 22 will find a rare show at the track as the historic oval hosts the return of the Super DIRTcar Series big block modifieds for the first time since 2006. The URC sprints will join the big blocks for the Thursday show.

Other divisions appearing on the 2016 schedule include ARDC Midgets, PASS IMCA 305 sprints, street stocks, super sportsman, limited late models and super late models.

The super lates join the 410 sprints for the season opener in March before returning twice more.

The regular Williams Grove 410 sprints cars, aside from competing in the season-long Lawrence Chevrolet point title chase, will also be taking part in two other series of races within the overall title chase.

The Hoosier Diamond Series will again be staged with a champion declared based on performances in select races during the year while a new series of sorts, the Yellow Breeches 500 races take place on April 1, April 15, May 6, July 8 and August 26.

In fact, Stutts won back-to-back Friday night 410 sprint car events that year with a victory the previous week on March 17 while driving Gary and Patti Beam’s No. 88.

The June 10 race will be the first of two special events at the historic Snyder County oval over the early June weekend. Selinsgrove will also host the finale to the Appalachian Mountain Late Model Speedweek Series on Sunday, June 12. There will be no racing on Saturday, June 11.

MONTIETH CLAIMS FIFTH TRACK CHAMPIONSHIP IN LINCOLN 410 SPRINTS;

Doug Hammaker edges Matt Campbell by five points to take first Lincoln title in 358 sprint division

YORK, PA, 11/21/15 - Lincoln Speedway track champions and special year-end awards were handed out at the Wyndham Garden York Hotel Saturday night, November 21st. The top ten finishers in the season-long point series for both sprint car divisions and special awards were distributed to rookies’ of-the-year and most improved driver.

MONTIETH WINS BIG RACES, INCLUDING “DIRT CLASSIC” TO CLAIM FIFTH LAWRENCE CHEVROLET TRACK CHAMPIONSHIP

Phoenixville’s Brian Montieth rode the strength of six wins and 21 top-ten finishes in 24 races to claim his fifth Lincoln track title. Among his wins were the Spring Championship, Sterner Memorial, All-Star Circuit of Champions show, and the biggest race in Lincoln history, the Second Annual “Dirt Classic.” Sixteen of those 21 top-ten finishes were actually top fives. Back-to-back victories on weeks two and three (the Spring Championship) vaulted Montieth into a points lead he never relinquished. Montieth’s other win came in a regular point show on May 30th. Montieth’s “Dirt Classic” win was a milestone 50th, sixth on all the all-time Lincoln win list. His fifth title is third to only Fred Rahmer (11) and Steve Smith (9). Montieth’s title also earned Scott Zellers Lincoln’s mechanic of-the-year award.

2014 track champ Alan Krimes won the Hilly Rife Memorial, scored nine top-five finishes and 18 top-ten finishes to a runner-up finish in season points.

2014 national and Lincoln rookie of-the-year Austin Hogue of Dover certainly didn’t suffer the dreaded sophomore jinx. Though he didn’t get a Lincoln win in ’15, he did score six top-five and 13 top-ten finishes in a competitive Lincoln field to finish third in season points. Hogue was also awarded the inaugural Harry Fletcher Sportsmanship Award.

Kyle Moody, voted by track officials as the most improved driver of the year, went winless at Lincoln in 2015, but did lead 36 laps during the season and contended for the win in several events. He registered two top-five and 10 top-ten finishes to end fourth in season points.

Rounding out the top five in the season point series was six-time winner Danny Dietrich. Though traveling a few times and missing races, Dietrich was able to garner 16 top-five finishes, trying champ Montieth for the series lead in that category. He also scored 18 top-ten finishes, meaning his was in the top five all but two races during the year. Among his wins were the John Gleim “Dirt Classic Qualifier,” first PA Speedweek show at Lincoln, and final Gohn Memorial.

Sixth through tenth in season points were Cory Haas, Jim Siegel, Robbie Kendall, Freddie Rahmer, and Gerard McIntyre, Jr. (whose lone win came in the season finale Hank Gentzler Memorial Manufacturers Night).

Brothers Brandon and Freddie Rahmer both scored their first-career 410 sprint wins during the season, and they came on back-to-back weeks August 29th and September 5th.

Other Lincoln wins in 2015 were recorded by Greg Hodnett (who won both the season opener and the World of Outlaws race on May 13th), and single-race winners J.J. Grasso, Glenndon Forsythe, Jim Siegel, Stevie Smith, Lance Dewease, and Chase Dietz, Lincoln’s rookie of-the-year who won on Premier Auto Works Night.

All told, there were 13 different winners in 24 races at Lincoln in 2015.

SPECIAL AWARDS WINNERS (410 Sprints)

Super Sprint Champion – Brian Montieth

Mechanic of the Year – Scott Zellers

Rookie of the Year – Chase Dietz

Harry Fletcher Sportsmanship Award – Austin Hogue

Most Improved Driver – Kyle Moody

DOUG HAMMAKER CLAIMS FIRST-EVER LINCOLN SPEEDWAY KEIZER ALUMINUM WHEELS TRACK CHAMPIONSHIP

Carlisle’s Doug Hammaker won three times during the season to edge Matt Campbell by a mere five points and claim his first track title in Lincoln’s 358 sprint car division. Despite a rainout on the final points race of the year, Hammaker came back to win the season finale on October 10th and put an exclamation point on a thrilling season-long points chase that saw several point leaders during the year. All told, Hammaker scored 11 top-five and 12 top-ten finishes in 16 events.

Fawn Grove’s Campbell won two races and finished second in season points. He challenged Hammaker down the stretch with six top-five and a series-leading 13 top-ten finishes.

Fellow two-time winner and former two-time track champ (2008 & 2011) Jeff Rohrbaugh finished third in season points. His two wins tied him with Cory Haas atop the all-time Lincoln career 358 sprint car win list with 13. He ended the season with seven top-five and 11 top-ten finishes and won the Trail-Way/Lincoln 358 “Shootout” on the strength of two second-place finishes.

Lady driver Brie Hershey of Dillsburg completed a solid year by finishing fourth in season points. She four top-five and nine top-ten finishes.

Cody Fletcher earned the most improved driver award on the strength of three top-five and nine top-ten finishes to finish fifth in the season point series. He also received the Harry Fletcher Memorial Sportsmanship Award, in honor of his grandfather, who passed away late in the 2015 season.

Sixth through tenth in season points were Matt Findley, rookie of-the-year Cole Young (who scored his first career win on May 23rd), Chandler Leiby (one win), Tyler Esh, and Kyle Denmyer.

Other drivers who picked up their first Lincoln career wins in 2015 were Kody Lehman, Davie Franek, Bill Stine, and Jeff Halligan (who won twice).

Other winners during the year were Todd Rittenhouse, Jr. (who won opening night) and Adrian Shaffer (who missed some races but finished 11th in the final point standings).

All told, there were 12 different winners in 16 events.
