SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY/SUSQUEHANNA VALLEY MALL MOTORSPORTS SHOW RUNS FEB. 26 – MARCH 3

FORMER CHAMPION CHAD LAYTON SET TO RETURN IN KIRK RITTER-OWNED 360 SPRINT CAR

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – The annual Selinsgrove Speedway Motorsports Show at the Susquehanna Valley Mall will run Sunday, Feb. 26 through Friday, March 3.

More than 30 full-size race cars, including sprint cars, late models, pro stocks, and roadrunners, are tentatively scheduled to appear in this year’s show along with go karts and micro sprint cars. The track will hold its annual season kick-off ceremony in the mall’s center court at 7:30 p.m. Friday.

Among the entries for the show is a new 360 sprint car team set to make its debut at Selinsgrove Speedway this season with a familiar name behind the wheel. The speedway’s former three-time 358 sprint car champion Chad Layton of Harrisburg will be returning to the Snyder County half-mile oval in a 360 sprint car owned by Kirk Ritter of Middleburg.

For Ritter, fielding his own sprint car team has been a life-long dream. Making the venture even more exciting is the opportunity to reunite with Layton. Ritter turned the wrenches on the Middleswarth Potato Chips 410 sprint car that was piloted by Layton for several seasons in central Pennsylvania.

“I had been talking for three years about putting together a team that I could organize and work out of my own shop near my family,” said Ritter. “During the off-season I made a few phone calls and confirmed I would have some partners with similar interests in forming a new team. I then called Chad Layton and asked him if he was ready to go racing again.”

Layton’s last full season of competition was in 2014 when he was driving the Middleswarth Potato Chips sprint car.

Ritter is the sole owner of the No. 35 sprint car team and will also serve as crew chief. Major sponsors of the team are Selinsgrove Ford and Allen A. Shaffer Jr. & Son Insurance Agency LLC. Additional partners include Greber Racing Components, Don Ott Racing Engines, Engler Machine & Tool, HorstCraft Millworks, and Bud Godek Auto Body.

“The team’s goal is to show up every week fully prepared and with equipment capable of winning that night,” said Ritter. “My goal as a car owner is to build this team to attract sponsors who share our passion and want to grow the team’s competitiveness with an understanding of family.”

Layton, now 42, took Selinsgrove Speedway by storm in his 20’s when the track made the switch from weekly 410 sprint car competition to 358 sprint car racing in 2001. Layton clinched three consecutive titles 2001-2003 and won 25 races at Selinsgrove in his family’s popular U-1 358 sprint car. During this time he also won two Williams Grove Speedway 358 sprint car titles.

Layton eventually moved into 410 sprint car racing where he continued to enjoy much success. In his 410 sprint car racing career he won 33 races, including World of Outlaws, All Star, and National Sprint Tour events. He scored 410 titles at Port Royal Speedway in 2010 and 2012 and won Selinsgrove Speedway’s 410 National Open in 2006.

Crew members on the No. 35 360 sprint car team include Chris Stake, Eric Naylor, David Bodmer, and Lauren Weikel.

Selinsgrove Speedway’s 2017 season opener is slated for 6 p.m. Saturday, April 8, featuring the 360 sprint cars in the Spring Showdown with the Empire Super Sprints, late models, and pro stocks. Track gates will open at 4 p.m.

LINCOLN SPEEDWAY

Abbottstown, PA

Abbottstown, PA – 2/13/2017 - "And, once again, all is right in the world."

So says Wayne Harper, voice of Lincoln Speedway, each year following the first hot lap session of Lincoln Speedway's “Icebreaker 30,” the 410 sprint car opener in the Northeast region of the United States. And after a long off-season filled with changes on and off the track, the 2017 season will take the green flag on Saturday, February 25th at 2:00 p.m. Gates will open at noon.

New bleachers in the general admission grandstands will greet spectators entering the speedway as the cement seating on the front stretch has been upgraded to traditional bleacher seats. Reserved season ticket holders will now have individual seats at the top of the grandstands as well.

As for the drivers, much will remain the same. Five-time track champion Brian Montieth and the Jerry Parrish owned, Premier AutoWorks #21 will return as well as the two-time and defending track champion Alan Krimes in his family-owned and operated #87. 2012 track champion and two-time World of Outlaw winner at Lincoln Danny Dietrich plans on running a heavily Lincoln based schedule in 2017 aboard his Weikert’s Livestock Gary Kauffman-owned #48. Four-time feature winner at Lincoln in 2017 Greg Hodnett, who won last year’s “Icebreaker 30,” will be a force to be reckoned with in his Michael Heffner-owned #27 entry.

There will also be some changes in the pits to open the 2017 season. Cory Haas, fourth in the 2016 Lawrence Chevrolet point standings, will be aboard the John Trone #39 in 2017, while Lucas Wolfe will jump into the Michael Barshinger entry, previously occupied by Haas the past decade. 2015 National Sprint Car Rookie of the Year Chase Dietz will pursue his first Lincoln track championship in his first full season with the Godfrey motorsports team. 2016 National Sprint Car Rookie of the Year Matt Campbell will be running 410's full-time in 2017 and will be looking to improve on his eye-opening top ten finish at September's “Dirt Classic.”

Expect 2016 Lincoln Speedway Rookie of the Year Joe Kata III to make the eight-hour round-trip down from New York as he did so many times last year. Frequent Lincoln afternoon show visitor Ohio's Cole Duncan and Western Pennsylvania's 2015 Lernerville track champion AJ Flick have both expressed interested in attending the season opener weather-permitting.

Staples in the Lincoln Speedway pits such as Jim Siegel, Brandon and Freddie Rahmer, Kyle Moody, Tyler Ross and Billy Dietrich are expected to be in attendance as well. All of the above recorded wins in the 2016 campaign.

The “Icebreaker 30” pays $4,000 to win and 410 sprint cars are the only racing on the card.

Leiby takes 2016 track title in Lincoln 358 sprint division

YORK, PA, 11/19/16 - Lincoln Speedway track champions and special year-end awards were handed out at the Wyndham Garden York Hotel Saturday night, November 19th. 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.

KRIMES SCORES SECOND LAWRENCE CHEVROLET TRACK CHAMPIONSHIP IN THREE YEARS

Denver’s Alan Krimes rode the strength of two wins and consistent top finishes to his second track title in three years in the 410 sprint car division. Ironically, Krimes’ second win came in the final points race of the year to clinch the track title. Capping off a strong second half of the season, Krimes dethroned five-time and defending track champ Brian Montieth with 13 top-five and a division-leading 19 top-ten finishes in 23 events. Krimes’ two wins in the Wayne Corini CPA/Abe Service Company/Krimes Racing Engines/Conestoga Valley Garage #87 moved into sole possession of 20th place on the all-time Lincoln win list with 18 career wins. Krimes title also earned his father Larry Lincoln’s mechanic of-the-year award.

Five-time track champ Brian Montieth rode the strength of three wins, 12 top-five finishes and 18 top tens to second in season points. His three wins kept him in sole possession of sixth place on the all-time Lincoln win list with 53, three wins behind Bobby Able.

New Oxford’s Jim Siegel won once and scored four top-five and 15 top-tens to finish third in season points. His win came in August on McSherrystown Moose Lodge #720 Night.

Dallastown’s Cory Haas went winless at Lincoln in 2016, but did register three top-five and 11 top ten finishes to end fourth in season points.

Rounding out the top five in the season point series was Gerard McIntyre, Jr., who finished in the top-five six times and in the top ten 13 times.

Sixth through tenth in season points were Harry Fletcher Sportsmanship Award winner Austin Hogue, Glenndon Forsythe, Robbie Kendall, Freddie Rahmer, and Adam Wilt.

Kasey Kahne and most improved driver Tyler Ross both scored their first-career Lincoln 410 sprint wins during the season. Kahne’s win came in the March 26th Spring Championship.

There were a host of one-time winners who scored their second career Lincoln win, including Chase Dietz, Hogue, Brandon Rahmer, Freddie Rahmer, Kyle Moody, and Billy Dietrich.

Greg Hodnett, who set a new one-lap track record and set fast time in three of the eight time trial events and won the season-opening “Icebreaker 30,” “Dirt Classic Showcase” in June and the Annual Weldon Sterner Memorial in July, was the leading feature winner on the season with four, followed by Montieth’s three wins.

Other Lincoln wins in 2016 were recorded by Danny Dietrich (two, including the annual Lincoln All-Star show), J.J. Grasso (National Fallen Firefighters Night in August), Lance Dewease (who won the Gobrecht Memorial Lincoln PA Speedweek opener), and Stevie Smith (whose lone victory came in the $20,000-to-win Third Annual “Dirt Classic”).

Carlisle’s Chandler Leiby scored his first win of the year in the next-to-last points race and went on to claim his first track title in Lincoln’s 358 sprint car division. It was especially gratifying for Chandler to pick up the win and, ultimately, the track championship on the following week in the presence of his late grandfather and Lincoln co-promoter Bob Leiby, who passed away shortly thereafter. All told, Leiby scored eight top-five and a division-leading 14 top-ten finishes in 18 events, which gave him a slim 35-point lead Matt Campbell and 45-point lead over Adrian Shaffer, who were all vying for the track title entering the final points race of the year.

Campbell won the third race of the year and finished second in season points. He challenged Leiby down the stretch with ten top-five and 13 top-ten finishes.

Shaffer finished an impressive third in season points. He claimed his 11th career Lincoln and moved alongside Cris Eash and Doug Esh on the all-time win list with his victory on April 18th, and ended the season with eight top-five and 13 top-ten finishes.

Rookie of-the-year Brent Shearer was fourth in season points. Shearer scored his first career win on September 10th and ended the season with three top-five and nine top-ten finishes.

Former track champ and two-time winner Jeff Rohrbaugh rounded out the top five in season points. Despite an abbreviate schedule, Rohrbaugh scored seven top-five and 12 top-ten finishes.

Sixth through tenth in season points were Central PA point series champ Jeff Halligan, most improved driver Tyler Esh, Matt Findley, and two-time winners Doug Hammaker and Brie Hershey.

SUSQUEHANNA SPEEDWAY RACE RESULTS SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 5, 2016

JACOB ALLEN GETS FIRST CAREER WIN IN SPRINT SHOWDOWN Kevin Nouse Scores in 358 Sprints

By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA 11/5/16

The Wintermyer Auto Salvage Sprint Showdown presented by Rock-It Pizza brought closed the curtain on the 2016 Susquehanna Speedway.

And it brought a little of everything.

Hanover’s Jacob Allen gave the largest crowd of the season a thrill has he led all 30-laps to capture his first career 410 Sprint car win. Allen’s win came in the final BAPS Coatings & Supplies race of 2016.

After winning the dash, Allen, who recently completed his third full season on the World of Outlaws tour lined up on the pole and would keep Lance Dewease at bay during the entire 30 lap distance as he became the fourth different winner in five BAPS events this season.

With Delaware style restarts the theme for the day, Allen was able to stay out front and was never seriously challenged as he brought home the big $5,000 check for the Shark Racing Team, owned by his father, Bobby Allen.

Allen controlled the event as only one caution slowed the pace during the first 21 laps.

But two straight reds, one for Kyle Reinhardt and then another for Logan Wagner on the restart slowed the pace. The third and final red came out with four laps to go when Tyler Reeser flipped.

Second-starting Dewease finished second with Greg Hodnett winning the torried battle for third over Brent Marks. Fifth went to Ryan Smith, who earned $500 from Emory Transmissions and a $400 gift certificate from Brown & Miller Racing Solutions for setting fast time.

Completing the top ten finishers were Freddie Rahmer, Hard Charger Brandon Rahmer, Glenn Forsythe, Caleb Armstrong and Mike Mahaney. Rahmer earned a $400 gift certificate from Brown & Miller Racing Solutions.

Smith’s fast lap of 14.918 seconds during time trials came over a field of 35 410 Sprints.

Heats were won by Kyle Reinhardt, Allen, Dewease and Wagner with Brandon Rahmer taking the consolation win.

Kevin Nouse started second in the 25-lap 358 Sprint car feature and led flag to flag to score the $1,000 payday.

Numerous yellows slowed Nouse’s pace and a close call when Shane Yost spun directly in front of him with 22 laps complete, but it was all Nouse out front in taking the win over sixth-starting Steve Owings, 14th starter Kyle Denmyer, 10th starting Brie Hershey and 18th starting Cody Flecher.

Rounding out the top ten finishers were Dwight Leppo, Steven Drevicki, Todd Gracey, Jeff Halligan and Jordan Givler.

Heats for the 24 358 Sprints were won by Nouse, Doug Hammaker and Drevecki.

The 2016 awards banquet is up next for Susquehanna Speedway and it will be held on Saturday, December 17th at the Wyndham Gettysburg. The deadline to register is December 2nd. Tickets are $50 per person. Cocktail hour begins at 5pm with the banquet beginning at 6pm. The Colt Wilbur Band will be the featured entertainment.

Port Royal Speedway, URC & PASS Cancel Oct. 22 Open Wheel Madness

10/21/16

Port Royal Speedway has canceled its October 22 Open Wheel Madness racing program due to inclement weather for late season racing. With a forecast for lingering rains early on Saturday giving way to an intense, biting wind and temperatures expected to top out around 50, the reluctant decision to cancel was made late Friday afternoon.

Port Royal Speedway officials consulted with the National Weather Service in State College late on Friday afternoon and after receiving information that winds are predicted to be sustained at 20 mph, gusting to as high as 30 and 40 mph, and not expected to subside into Saturday evening, officials with URC and the PASS along with oval officials decided the best decision was to call off the event.

The timely decision to cancel will allow fans and teams traveling from afar to make other plans to attend other races occurring in New York, Ohio and North Carolina while also preventing them from incurring any of the expenses involved with trekking to Port Royal.

The annual Port Royal Foliage Days event, a craft, food and flea market held around the speedway this weekend will go on as slated.

The season is now concluded at Port Royal Speedway with the annual banquet slated for Saturday, November 19 at 5 pm at the Port Royal Community Building.

Schuchart Scores Popular Port Royal World Of Outlaws Victory Saturday

Hanover driver gets second tour win of year in front of home state fans

10/15/16

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Hanover’s Logan Schuchart scored a convincing win in Saturday night’s 30-lap World of Outlaws sprint car feature at Port Royal Speedway, taking $10,000 for the victory in front of his home state fans.

The victory was Schuchart’s second career checkers at the Port Royal oval and it was also his second of the season with the World of Outlaws sprint car circuit after recording his first-ever with the group earlier this year in the Midwest.

The 25-lap xtreme stock main was taken by Curtis Lawton who scored $1,000 for the checkers.

A stellar 46-car field of World of Outlaws sprint cars signed in for action with Lucas Wolfe setting the overall fast time in time trials with a lap of 15.258 while Schuchart was second quick.

Wolfe started on the pole of the sprint car feature flanked by Schuchart with Donny Schatz and Greg Hodnett in row two.

Wolfe bolted into control when action began but only two laps could be completed before the first caution flag of the race appeared for a spun Brock Zearfoss in the third turn.

Wolfe chose the inside for the double file restart and Schuchart blasted in front of Wolfe for the lead when the field took the green off of the fourth corner.

The restart also allowed Schatz to get by Hodnett for third.

Schuchart entered the rear of the field on the eighth lap and by lap 10 he had built up a 2.177 second lead over Wolfe.

TJ Stutts spun in the second turn with 11 laps down, setting up another restart with Schuchart choosing the inside lane for the new green.

And this time Hodnett one-upped Schatz for third, taking the spot away while Schuchart drove away from Wolfe and 10th starter starter Brian Brown got by Daryn Pittman for fifth.

At the halfway point Schuchart again had a healthy lead, this time 2.372 seconds.

In firm control, Schuchart again hit the backmarkers with 10 laps to go, finding Brown relegating Schatz to fifth as the Missouri driver impressed the fans on his first ever visit to the track.

With six laps to go Schuchart was hiding from the field out front as Hodnett rolled to the bottom side and began making time on Wolfe.

Simultaneously, 12th starter Lance Dewease was knifing through the field, up to seventh during his assault on the field.

Both Hodnett and Schatz surged during the final laps, with Hodnett motoring by Wolfe into second with Schatz following suit for third.

Dewease meanwhile tracked down and drove by David Gravel and Brown in the final laps to be alongside Wolfe for fourth on the final lap as the pair raced down the backchute.

Aboard a mount owned by his famous grandfather Bobby Allen, Logan Schuchart took the win by 4.705 seconds at the finish over Hodnett, Schatz, Wolfe and Dewease.

Sixth through 10th went to Brown, Gravel, Pittman, Brad Sweet and Joey Saldana.

Heats went to Schuchart, Schatz, Wolfe and Pittman with the C Main going to Zearfoss and Jacob Allen scoring the B Main.

Wolfe won the six-lap dash, setting a new track record with a time of 1:30.002.

Brian Walls started on the pole of the xtreme stock main and led the first 18 laps before sixth starter Curtis Lawton muscled into control.

Reigning track champion Pete Leister pressured Walls for control after starting eighth but instead, Lawton surged during the second half of the race to use a fast outside lane to get control, passing both leaders at once with six laps to go for the win.

Walls was second followed by Leister, Alex Boozel and Deron Henry.

Heats went to Mike Goodwin and Lawton

FROM WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY
OCTOBER 14, 2016
DANNY DIETRICH WINS CHAMPION RACING OIL NATIONAL OPEN AT WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY
MECHANICSBURG, PA – Danny Dietrich grabbed the lead from Joey Saldana with two laps to go and would go on to win the 54th Annual Williams Grove National Open Friday night.
Dietrich, of Gettysburg, earned $25,000 in the car owned by Gary Kauffman. It was his first career National Open win.
“This is incredible,” said Dietrich. “That might have been one of the toughest races I’ve run. They were setting one heck of a pace. I kept working the bottom off of four and I thought if we got to traffic, I’d be alright and sure enough we got to it. These are the toughest guys to race against and to be able to win against these guys and race that hard- it was no easy win.”
Saldana started on the pole and grabbed the early race lead over Brad Sweet and Donny Schatz. David Gravel and Dietrich, who started sixth, swapped the fourth spot.
Saldana reached lapped traffic with six laps completed on a very fast racing surface. Saldana struggled to lap some cars allowing Sweet and Schatz to close. Saldana would finally lap Danny Holtgraver leaving the battle for second.
Sweet would close again and grab the lead off turn two with 14 laps completed. Sweet got held up by a lapped car entering turn one and Saldana blasted around the cushion to retake the lead. Schatz drove under Sweet off turn four to take second.
Saldana led by 1.180 seconds at the half-way point of the 40-lap National Open. Dietrich passed Gravel and then Sweet to move into third.
The first caution flag flew with 23 laps completed when Doug Esh stopped at the end of the backstretch. The field was then stopped to allow teams to refuel.
Saldana picked the inside lane on Schatz for the double-file restart
Dietrich threw a big slider at Schatz in turn three to take the second spot. Schatz fought back, but Dietrich drove off the cushion in turn two to secure second.
Shane Stewart stopped on the frontstretch with 24 laps completed. Saldana and Dietrich now shared the front row for the restart.
Saldana would keep Dietrich behind him following the restart as Schatz and Sweet raced hard for third.
Dave Blaney spun in turn two with 26 laps completed.
Dietrich went after Saldana in turn one on the restart and grabbed the lead. Saldana drove back under him to retake the lead as they race down the backstretch. Saldana took the cushion in turn three, but Dietrich drove to the bottom and had the lead coming off turn four, but the caution flew before they completed the lap.
A single-file restart ensued with Saldana leading Dietrich.
Saldana kept Dietrich about a second behind him until they reached lapped traffic. Dietrich tried to take the lead with seven laps to go, but couldn’t make the pass in turn four.
Saldana continued to lead, but Dietrich wasn’t done. Saldana checked up hard entering turn one behind Shane Stewart. Dietrich was there and nearly got into the back of Saldana in turn two.
Both drivers maintained their spots as they straightened out off turn two and raced down the backstretch. Saldana led with two laps to go, but Dietrich drove by him in turns one and two. Dietrich led into turn three and as they took the white flag.
“I lost that ground, but made it right back up,” said Dietrich. “I really thought without the lapped cars I’d be able to pull back to his bumper and it was going to have to be a big slide-job to get by him.”
Dietrich controlled the final lap to score the win by 1.127 over Saldana.
“If you would have told me on lap 10 that I’d be standing here, I would have laughed,” said Dietrich. “But, the track came to us a little bit and 40 laps is a long race. We were set-up for the last 20 and it played out in our favor.”
Saldana was forced to settle for a disappointing runner-up.
“He’s really good,” said Saldana. “These guys out here are very good and to be able to be on the frontstretch with them is a huge accomplishment. But, obviously, you want to win this race and I didn’t get it done. It sucks to be two laps short.”
Sweet, Schatz and Gravel completed the top five. Track champion Greg Hodnett, Daryn Pittman, Logan Schuchart, Lance Dewease and Jason Sides rounded out the top 10.
Tim Wagaman set overall fast time with a lap of 16.314 seconds. Schuchart was just a tick slower with a lap of 16.316 in the second flight of qualifying. A total of 48 cars were in the pits.
Blaney, Sweet, Gravel and Saldana won the eight-lap heat races. Saldana won the dash. Tim Shaffer won the C-main. T.J. Stutts won the B-main.

Brie Hershey only the third repeat winner of the year in 358’s; Fred Cullum stays undefeated in 2016 Lincoln All-American Outlaws

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 10/9/2016 – Brian Montieth took advantage of a front-row starting position to score the 53rd win of his Lincoln career in Sunday night’s Hank Gentzler Memorial Manufacturers Appreciation Race sponsored by Pancho’s Racing Products.

“Starting up front and leading helped us out,” said Montieth upon exiting the Jerry Parrish #21 in victory lane, “I’m sure Danny (Dietrich) was better than me, because I saw him come up on the board there pretty quick. I didn’t know what he was going to do. I was trying to use every block I could with the lapped cars. Tonight, it worked out to be the leader.”

Montieth grabbed the lead from polesitter Austin Hogue at the outset and led every lap. Dietrich, who started sixth, was already up to second by the end of the second lap, setting up the anticipated race-long battle between the two dominant racers at the Pigeon Hills oval in 2016.

The only break in action during the 25-lap event was a sixth-lap caution for Bill Jones, Jr., who came to a stop in turn one.

Dietrich chased Montieth the whole way, pulling alongside the leader several times over the second half of the race.

“I could hear him back there the whole time, and I was just basically trying to not mess up,” said Montieth, “The car drag-raced pretty good down the chute, but didn’t get through the corners well, at least to my liking. But we’re sitting here for the last race of the season, and I can’t say much more about these guys. The season’s long, and I’m glad to see it’s over.”

Montieth’s final margin of victory was a carlength, with Alan Krimes making a late-race pass over Lucas Wolfe to finish third. Wolfe and World of Outlaw invader Jacob Allen crossed fourth and fifth. Sixth through tenth were Brent Marks, Jim Siegel, Greg Hodnett, Logan Schuhart, and Hogue.

Heats for the 29 410 sprints on hand were won by Wolfe, Siegel, and Hogue, with Brandon Rahmer winning the consolation.

Lady driver Brie Hershey won a race-long battle with Brent Shearer and survived a last-lap shootout to score her second win of the year in the 20-lap “358” sprint car feature.

Like Montieth, Hershey started on the outside of the front row alongside Jake Eldreth. But unlike Montieth, she did not lead every lap. She momentarily lost the lead to Shearer, who was scored the leader in heavy lapped traffic on lap 10. But Hershey made the bottom groove work to perfection and got back around Shearer on lap 11.

She joined Doug Hammaker and Jeff Rohrbaugh as the only repeat winners in the 358 division this season.

Shearer settled for second, with 11th-starting Doug Hammaker, 2016 track champ Chandler Leiby, and 12th-starting Tyler Esh rounding out the top five. Sixth through tenth were Eldreth, Todd Rittenhouse, Jr., Ashley Cappetta, 19th-starting Kyle Denmyer, and Cody Fletcher.

Heats for the 28 358 sprints on hand were won by Dwight Leppo (who flipped on lap 19 of the feature), Shearer, and CJ Tracy, with Kyle Denmyer winning the consolation.

Fred Cullum won again in the All-American Outlaw feature, remaining undefeated at Lincoln in 2016. And he did it in dramatic fashion, catching race-long leader Bryan Green coming down to the checkered flag on the last lap.

For the second straight time, Green lost to Cullum on the final turns to the checkered.

Third through fifth were Justin Cullum, Randy Doty, and Danny Holmes.

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

The All-American Outlaw feature ended the 2016 Lincoln racing season.

The Lincoln Speedway Awards Banquet will close out 2016 speedway activities on Saturday, November 19th (6 PM-12:30 AM).

Port Royal Hosts World Of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Cars This Week, Oct. 15

Premier sprint car stars in world to compete for 10K in 30-lap main!

Xtreme stocks race for $1,000 to win

Event Presented By Nittany Media

10/9/16

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Presented by Nittany Media, Port Royal Speedway will present the World of Outlaws Craftsman sprint car series coming up this Saturday, October 15 at 5 pm.

The World of Outlaws sprint cars and stars will race in a 30-lap main paying $10,000 to win.

The xtreme stocks are also on the program, competing in a $1,000 to win feature event.

Gates for Saturday’s World of Outlaws program open at 2 pm.

The race is raindated for Sunday, October 16 at 4 pm.

Event sponsor Nittany Media has been Driving Technology Home in the region since 1957 and is proud to present the 2016 World of Outlaws sprint car show at Port Royal Speedway.

Featuring Advantage Cable TV with all your favorite channels, Nmax Wideband Internet with 50 megabit service everywhere and Keystone Digital Voice phone service with unlimited calling as low as $14.99 a month, Nittany Media is an area leader in the telecommunications and cable/internet access industry.

Reach Nittany Media at 1-800-692-7401.

One year ago in World of Outlaws sprint car action at Port Royal Speedway, California’s Brad Sweet took home the victory after taking the lead from Lucas Wolfe on lap 14.

Sweet then saw Daryn Pittman get by for the lead in traffic with eight laps to go before a restart two laps later gave Sweet a second chance for the win, which he made good on for a .455 second victory over Pittman and Donny Schatz.

The question this year will be to what extent can Greg Hodnett and Lance Dewease defend Pennsylvania Posse turf at Port Royal as both drivers have been the hottest in the area and at the track this season.

Hodnett scored seven times alone at Port Royal this year and is the winningest driver in the east aboard Mike Heffner’s No. 27 machine while Dewease himself scored the two biggest races of the year at the track by taking the Dream Race and the Tuscarora 50, driving for Don Kreitz Jr. in the No. 69K.

Ironically, Kreitz’s car beat the outlaws once before at Port Royal with Kreitz himself behind the wheel in 1986.

Schatz enters the race again this season atop the outlaws win list with 24 to date while also again leading points. Other top circuit winners this season are David Gravel, 9; Shane Stewart, 8; and Sweet and Pittman, 7.

Reserved seats for this year’s Port Royal show are available in rows 11 – 19 of the original aluminum grandstand, sections a – g, priced at $35 each, regardless of age.

Rows 1 – 10 in sections a - g of the original aluminum grandstand will be open, first-come, first-serve, general admission seating for the big race this year along with all other facility seating including those seats in the newly installed grandstand for 2016.

General admission prices for the October 15 event are as follows: Ages 0 - 11, Free; Ages 12 - 18, $20; Adults, $30.

General admission seats will be offered on a first come, first serve basis on the day of the show.

In order to purchase reserved seats, fans can visit www.worldofoutlaws.com/tickets or call the ticket hotline at 844 DIRT TIX (347-8849).

Pit Admission will be $40.

Rescheduled World Of Outlaws Champion Racing Oil 54th National Open Closes Williams Grove Speedway Season Friday With $25,000 Payday!

Oval Champion To Be Crowned With Checkered Flag

10/9/16

Mechanicsburg – The rescheduled Williams Grove Speedway Champion Racing Oil 54th annual National Open for sprint cars sanctioned by the World of Outlaws Craftsman Series will close the oval’s season this Friday night, October 14 at 7:30 pm.

After being lost to rain two weeks ago, the make-up Champion Racing Oil National Open will be a stand-alone program, paying $25,000 to win and $1,000 to start the 40-lap World of Outlaws main event.

The conclusion of the Open will also crown the 2016 Williams Grove Speedway Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint car champion as the Open pits the Pennsylvania Posse sprint car stars against the World of Outlaws stars.

Greg Hodnett is the current Williams Grove point leader going into the prestigious race.

Adult general admission for Friday’s Champion Racing Oil National Open is $35 with youth ages 13 – 20 admitted for $20 while kids ages 12 and under are always free. Season reserved seats will be honored for the event.

Advanced tickets for the big event are currently being offered during business hours.

Rainchecks from the original dates of September 29, 30 and October 1 can be used in the speedway office to purchase tickets for October 14.

The Williams Grove Speedway campground will open on Friday, October 14 at noon and remain open until Saturday, October 15 at 5 pm.

All camping passes and reserved spots purchased for September 27-October 3 will be honored on October 14. New camping passes will be sold in advance or upon arrival for $10.

Throughout history, no other driver has ever won the Williams Grove National Open as many times as outlaws warrior Donny Schatz who put himself on top of the event win list by claiming his fifth Nationals in 2012.

Schatz will enter the Williams Grove Champion Racing Oil National Open weekend leading the outlaws point standings, racing well ahead of Daryn Pittman, while also having accrued the most wins of any circuit driver this season.

Hanover native Stevie Smith scored redemption after a heartbreak a year earlier to record his third career triumph in the Williams Grove marquee event in 2015.

Smith took the lead from Danny Dietrich on the ninth tour last year to lead the final 31 circuits and beat Schatz to the line for victory aboard Fred Rahmer’s No. 51.

The Williams Grove portion of the 50/50 drawing on Friday will be split between the Bethesda Project and the Dillsburg Kiwanis Club.

Port Royal Cancels Oct. 8 Races Due To Rain

Keystone RaceSaver 305 Sprint Challenge Added To Oct. 22 Open Wheel Madness

Xtreme Stocks to be run Oct. 15

10/8/16

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – The October 8 Blue Collar Classic race at Port Royal Speedway has been canceled due to rain and varying forecasts that conflict regarding the amount of projected and impacting rainfall throughout Saturday.

With teams and fans traveling from states away for the big 305 sprint show, the decision was made at 9:30 am in order to safeguard the travels and resulting expenses that could be incurred by teams and fans alike.

The October 8 cancellation has set up the following schedule changes for October 15 and October 22 events, finding the xtreme stocks and RaceSaver 305 Challenge rescheduled.

The Keystone RaceSaver 305 Sprint Challenge has now been added to the October 22 Open Wheel Madness program of 410 sprints and URC sprints.

The same program and purse that was slated for the 305 sprints on October 8 will now be run on October 22. However there will be no time trials for 305 sprints.

Starting time for October 22 has been moved to 3 pm.

The 410 and URC sprints will still compete in their regularly scheduled 30-lap main events on October 22. The 410 sprints will race for $5,000 to win.

The xtreme stock program slated for October 8 has been added to the October 15 racing program. It too will be run with the same format and purse in place as was originally slated.

Greg Hodnett Wins Third Of Williams Grove Season Friday, B. Bernheisel Takes Lates

10/7/16

Mechanicsburg – Greg Hodnett won his third sprint car feature of the season at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, scoring $3,800 for the 25-lap victory that was the 66th of his career to date at the oval.

In the 15-lap super late model main, Bryan Bernheisel of Lebanon scored a $2,000 win in a special “Run What Ya’ Brung” event.

Cory Haas started on the pole of the 410-sprint car main and led only the first two laps before Hodnett took over for what would be the win.

A volley of caution flags on laps three, four, seven and eight would hamper Hodnett’s pace at the front and repeatedly give Haas a second chance at the lead but Hodnett was up to the challenge each and every time.

Finally after the lap nine restart, the final circuits went non-stop with Hodnett amassing a 3.6 second lead by the halfway point while racing through traffic.

Invader Logan Schuchart was the show of the race after starting 24th in the field.

The World of Outlaws regular was already up to 12th on the fourth lap.

On the lap eight restart, Schuchart blasted to the outside of Tim Wagaman and Lance Dewease to take over eighth before further advancing his cause.

At the halfway point he was up to seventh and with 10 laps to go, he was sitting sixth.

And he would not stop there as he rallied into the top five, getting around Brian Montieth with seven laps to go.

But that would be the end of his advances as he then fell backward and off the pace during the final four laps.

In the end, Hodnett took the checkers 5.584 seconds ahead of closest pursuer Freddie Rahmer, who took the spot on the 12th lap.

Third went to Haas followed by Danny Dietrich and Brent Marks.

Sixth through 10th went to Lucas Wolfe, Brian Montieth, Lance Dewease, TJ Stutts and Rodney Westhafer.

Heats went to Montieth, Wolfe and Westhafer with Dan Shetler scoring the consolation race.

Bernheisel led all 15 laps of the super late model main with Coleby Frye racing in second for the majority of the event before withdrawing during the final few laps, handing second to Gene Knaub.

Tyler Horst, Frye, Sam Rial and Matt Murphy followed Bernheisel to the finish.

With what amounted to a sail mounted atop his late model machine, Bernheisel was turning laps in the 17-second bracket during the main event, which was within the same bracket as sprint car winner Hodnett during the sprint car main.

Frye also had the sail-like feature atop his mount.

Williams Grove Speedway closes the season next Friday, October 14 at 7:30 pm with the running of the 54th annual Champion Racing Oil National Open, sanctioned by the World of Outlaws Craftsman Series sprint cars.

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

Saturday Open pays $50,000 to win!

9/25/16

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Schatz was again the winner in 2007.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Saturdays National Open action begins at 6:30 pm.

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

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

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 24, 2016 SUSQUEHANNA SPEEDWAY RACE RESULTS

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Brown and Redman were heat winners with 17 cars pitside.

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

LINCOLN SPEEDWAY

Abbottstown, PA

THIRD ANNUAL “DIRT CLASSIC”

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Sat., Oct. 1, 2016 - NO RACING

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

SUSQUEHANNA SPEEDWAY RACE RESULTS THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 2016

DANNY DIETRICH TAKES HOME EXCITING SUSQUEHANNA WIN

Bob Stough Wins Legends Feature

By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA 9/22/16

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Port Royal Keystone RaceSaver Challenge Adds Jake Waters As Guest Announcer

Event Set For October 8

9/18/2016

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

PASS is among the largest regions in the country.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

A complete itinerary is being developed as sponsors sign on.

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

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY

17 September 2016 By Michael Batz

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Yoder's win came over Lupfer, Hardy, Haus, and Brian Bernheisel. Schick crossed the line sixth followed by Tim Wilson, Jeff Rine, Hayes Mattern, and Jeremy Miller.

Andy Haus, Hayes Mattern, and Danny Snyder took heat races wins in the racing for 24 cars.

MITTEN DOMINATES LAWRENCE CHEVOLET KEYSTONE 50 FOR SUPER SPORTSMAN;

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

9/16/16

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Phil Walter ended the race in fifth.

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

Heats went to Walter, Nouse and Arnold.

Nouse was the Wee Bee Audio and Video Hard Charger.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Marks was third followed by Stutts and Austin Hogue.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Lance Dewease Marches To Record Fifth Port Royal Tuscarora 50 Win

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

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

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

9/10/16

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Twin heats went to Krape and Hart.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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