The 43rd Eastern Museum of Motor Racing Convention Begins On August 11

York Springs, Pa. – The 43rd Eastern Museum of Motor Racing Annual Convention is August 11th through 13th, 2017. This year’s convention will honor the late Harry Fletcher. Harry had many notable drivers throughout his racing career; Diz Dean, Johnny Grum, Stevie Smith, Sr., Harry’s son, Bobby Fletcher, and grandson, Cody. In 1997, he was named Adams County Farmer of the Year. Harry and his family shared their love of racing and farming with their friends and community. He was one of a kind.

Friday, from 1 to 3 p.m. there will be a roundtable discussion with our Grand Marshalls, Joe Heisler, Jr. and Joe Heisler, III. The topic will be “Racing in the 40s and 50s”. Both the Heislers served on the EMMR Board and still contribute to the organization.

On Saturday and Sunday afternoon you can see the restored cars do exhibition racing around the historic Latimore Valley Speedway. The Inliners International will also have a display.

Sunday morning will be the membership meeting, and the introduction of our Grand Marshalls followed by a tribute to Harry Fletcher and his family.

Saturday, August 12th, is our annual Cruise-In Night at the museum from 3 to 8 p.m. We will be having food, music, raffles, special games, awards, and a cash award. There will be a plaque given to the first 100 participants. There is a registration fee of $10.00 and pre-registration fee of $8.00. There will be a Grand Door prize drawing worth $100 sponsored by Credit Connection Auto Sales for the pre-registered cars. The museum will be open. It’s free admission and you will be very surprised at the history that it holds. Rain date for the cruise will be on Sunday, Aug 13th from 3-8 p.m.

We hope you can join us on this weekend. For more information and tours contact us at eaglespoint97@yahoo.com.

EMMR is open to the public from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

The Eastern Museum of Motor Racing is a non-profit organization founded in 1975, dedicated to the preservation of America’s great motor racing history.

SUSQUEHANNA SPEEDWAY RACE RESULTS

KENNY EDKIN JUST KEEPS WINNING AT SUSQUEHANNA
Dietz, Sites and Upegraff also Take Checkered Flags
By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA…7/22/17
Kenny Edkin just isn’t letting up.

The young Marysville, PA racer stormed from his 12th starting spot to capture his second consecutive and fifth overall Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman feature Saturday at Susquehanna Speedway.

Chase Dietz raced to his first career Susquehanna Speedway win in the K1 RaceGear 358 Sprint Summer Series feature while Kory Sites ended the streak of first time winners in Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stock action, becoming the first repeat winner this season.

Alex Updegraff continued his winning ways in the Superior Homes Extreme Stocks with his eighth win of the year.

After Garrett Williamson and Matt Ondek traded the lead during the first eight laps of the 25-lap Super Sportsman feature, Edkin made the race winning move with nine laps complete after lining up on the sixth row.

Edkin pulled away from the field once again as he continued his summer hot streak and padded his track points lead with his eighth straight top five finish aboard his family owned Edkin’s Towing, Carlisle Auto Salvage, Marysville Motorcars, King Spin Pizza, Rich Valley Black Walnuts No. 75.

Mike Enders came from eighth to finish in the runner-up spot followed by 10th starter Paul Miller, Ondek and 11th starter Scott Dellinger with Russ Mitten, Doug Dodson, Rich Eichelberger, Chase Gutshall and 23rd starter and ArtWerks Hard Charger Davey Walsh completing the top ten.

Heats for the 23 Super Sportsman were won by Gutshall, Edkin and Tony Jackson.

Troy Wagaman, Jr. led the first ten laps of the 25-lap K1 RaceGear 358 Sprint Summer Series feature before fourth-starting Chase Dietz took over and would never look back in scoring his first win for the R & R Motorsports/Roger McGeehan owned team.

Dietz, who earned $1,500 for the win took the checkered flag ahead of Steven Drevicki, Wagaman, Brent Shearer and Jordan Givler.

Rounding out the top ten were 22nd starter and Hard Charger Chris Frank, Mike Bittinger, Chris Arnold, Chandler Leiby and TJ DeHaven.

The 358 Sprint car main was stopped twice with red flags involving top challengers Chad Trout, who set fast time and multi-time Central PA winner Doug Hammaker.

Drevecki, Wagaman, Givler and Dietz were heat winners for the 38-car field while Todd Gracey won the consolation. Trout paced time trials with a fast lap of 16.672 seconds.

Veteran driver Kory Sites became the first repeat winner in ten races this season as he picked up his second win in the Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stock feature.

Sites started third and wasted little time in taking control, gaining the lead on lap two and holding on despite six caution periods during the 20 lap event.

Sites took the win over Craig Morgan, 10th starter Michael Walls, Mike Potts and Scott Strickler as Dalton Frye, 16th starter Randy Zechman, Kevin Heckman, 19th starter and Artwerks Hard Charger Jimmy Combs and Jim Palm were the top ten finishers.

Joey Hoffer and Kevin Sigler won heats for the 19 Street Stocks.

It was win number eight for Alex Updegraff in the Superioer Homes Extreme Stock feature as he led the final 12 laps to pick up the win over Patrick McClane, Michael Smith, Travis Horan and Donnie Broderick. Updegraff also won the single heat race for the 12 car field.

Susquehanna Speedway will close out the month of July with a big double-header weekend with the 16th annual York County Nationals. Saturday night, July 29 will feature the Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman, ARDC Midgets, Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stocks and the Superior Homes Extreme Stocks. The Extreme Stocks will also have a makeup feature that was lost to curfew back on July 8. Then on Sunday night, July 30, the Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series will invade Susquehanna for a $10,000 to win 50-lap event for the Open Modifieds.

BITTINGER HOLDS OFF KODY HARTLAUB FOR TRAIL-WAY 358 SPRINT CAR WIN; CHANEY BEST OF CENTRAL PA LEGENDS; PECK, COX 270 MICRO WINNERS; CARROLL TAKES LIMITED STOCKS; RICKRODE WINS COGHILL MEMORIAL FOR VINTAGE CARS

HANOVER, PA (7/21/2017) – Mike Bittinger raced to his second win of the season in the 25-lap 358 sprint car feature at Trail-Way Speedway Friday night.

“It’s warm out, but I’m not quite as warm as I was the last time I was here,” quipped the Abbottstown driver after exiting his Apple Automotive/Big Mike’s Crabhouse/Three Hogs Barbecue #12 in victory lane.

The last time Bittinger raced at Trail-Way, he dove to the infield with his car on fire. He jumped from the car and rolled on the ground.

“My daughter told me I looked like Ricky Bobby,” joked Bittinger, “Next time I’ll have to rip my suit off and run down the track!”

Not only was Bittinger hot, but he was tired, too.

“I felt good for 20 laps, and then I don’t know what happened. I guess the Geratol wore off. I ended up bouncing off the curb a time or two, but it didn’t hurt us,” said Bittinger, “Without my crew and sponsors, I wouldn’t be standing here.”

His final margin of victory was a half-second over Kody Hartlaub, who completed his best-ever TW finish. Isaac Sneeringer crossed third, followed by hard charger Steve Owings, who started 12th and went into the pits for some adjustments after sustaining some damage in a four-car crash that resulted in a Cody Fletcher flip on turn one of lap two. Joe Trone, Jr. rounded out the top five.

Qualifiers for the 14 sprint cars were won by Hartlaub and David Holbrook.

The Mason Dixon 270cc micro-sprints ran two feature events.

In the make-up feature rained delayed from a few weeks ago, Levi Peck was declared the winner when Mike Rutherford was penalized two spots for passing before the cone on a restart. Chad Myers finished second and Rutherford was credited with third. Jeff Arigo and Joe Long Jr. completed the top five.

In the regularly-scheduled feature, Steven Cox won his first Trail-Way race of the year, crossing ahead of Peck, with Brent Bull, Chad Myers and Tim Mc Clelland rounding out the top five.

Bull land Cory Myers won heats for the 19 micros on hand.

Mason Chaney raced to his second Trail-Way win of the year and his sixth 2017 win overall in dthe Service Master Clean Central PA Legends feature.

Chris Transeau, 11th-starting Bill Diehl, Justin Mitchell, and Scott Houdeshell crossed second through fifth. Houdeshell actually came from the back twice after early-race incidents.

Heats for the 20 Legends were won by Rick Hartwig and Hayden Pascoe.

Scott Rickrode claimed the win in the 20-lap Les Coghill Memorial for the Penn Mar Vintage cars, a race made up from a June 23rrd rainout.

Randy Minich, Glenn Pobbletts, John Marks, and Mark Rickrode, Jr. rounded out the top five.

Robbie Carroll inherited the lead when Shannon Weaver made contact with a lapped car and struck the outside backstretch wall on lap nine, then went on to win his second TW race of the year n the 15-lap limited stock feature.

Terry Hartlaub, Kyle Rohrbaugh, Jason Chronister, and Jeff Foster crossed second through fifth.

Next Friday, July 28th, Trail-Way swings back into action with the 358 Sprints, along with the 600 Micro Sprints, Limited Stocks, Street Stocks and the Classic Cars competing in the 20-lap “Lyle Adcock Memorial.” Gates open at 5:30 p.m., with heats scheduled to begin at 7:45 p.m.

FROM WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY
JULY 21, 2017
BROCK ZEARFOSS WINS NIGHT NUMBER ONE OF CHAMPION RACING OIL SUMMER NATIONALS AT WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY FOR FIRST CAREER WORLD OF OUTLAWS VICTORY
MECHANICSBURG, Pa. – When Brock Zearfoss first drove Aaron Long’s No. 58, he didn’t qualify for the World of Outlaws race at Williams Grove Speedway in May.
But, it was a much different outcome Friday night as Zearfoss steered the car to victory in a wild 25-lap main event.
His first career series victory was worth $8,000 as he held off some of the Outlaws best.
“I was either going out of the park or winning this,” said Zearfoss in victory lane. “Our car was really good all night long. They’ve been working so hard. We debuted this at the first Outlaw race and weren’t good at all. To go from not making the show to standing on the frontstretch at an Outlaw race says something about these guys. I wasn’t lifting. I probably should have because I was banging off that cushion pretty hard, but how many times do you get to win an Outlaw race? This is a dream come true.”
“Our notebook isn’t very big,” said Long. “People can say what they want, but I think this guy is the most under-rated driver in the state. He gets better every week.”
Daryn Pittman and Lance Dewease swapped the lead in turns one and two on the initial start. Pittman officially led the first lap, but it was Dewease getting by for the lead off turn two.
Zearfoss, of Jonestown, passed Donny Schatz for the third spot as they raced off turn four. Zearfoss nearly passed Pittman for second as well. Dewease had a two-second lead when he reached the back of the field with eight laps completed.
Pittman caught the fence coming off turn four and Zearfoss got by. David Gravel passed Schatz and then Pittman to move into third.
The red flag flew with 16 laps completed. Sheldon Haudenschild flipped in turn one. He was okay. Danny Dietrich was also involved. Dewease had a 2.194 second lead.
Gravel passed Zearfoss down the frontstretch and then threw a huge slider at Dewease in turn one on the restart. Dewease was at the cushion as Gravel slid across the corner. Dewease jumped the cushion resulting in the car flipping several times along the top of turn two. A video replay showed no contact was made between the two cars. Dewease climbed out and walked away from the Donnie Kreitz-owned car.
Zearfoss and Gravel led the field down for the double-file restart with 16 laps completed.
Race officials called a jump start on Gravel on the restart.
“This motor was stumbling all night,” said Zearfoss. “I got it to go a couple of times. David didn’t jump me. It just didn’t go. I got lucky there.”
This put Gravel back one row and Schatz up to second. Zearfoss held Schatz back on the restart.
“I got it to go on that restart, but I didn’t want to see another caution because I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to do it again,” said Zearfoss. “Luckily, I got a good restart and was able to hold him off.”
Gravel got back by Pittman and then went after Schatz. They traded sliders and raced side-by-side before Gravel secured the spot off turn four just as the caution flew with 19 laps completed.
Gravel threw a slider at Zearfoss in turn one on the restart, but couldn’t clear the pass as Zearfoss blasted off the cushion.
Schatz got back by Gravel in turn four, but Gravel returned the pass in turn two as Zearfoss motored away.
His final margin of victory was 1.384 seconds over Gravel.
“I never touched him,” said Gravel referring to Dewease. “Lance probably had a pretty tight racecar and flipped over on the curb. I honestly didn’t want to slide him. I checked-up.

SUSQUEHANNA SPEEDWAY RACE RESULTS

LUCAS WOLFE MAKES LAST LAP PASS FOR WIN IN BAPS 410 SPRINTS
Kenny Edkin Continues Dream Season in Sportsman
By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA…7/16/17
Lucas Wolfe used a last lap, turn two pass to capture the win in Sunday night’s 30-lap BAPS Auto Paints and Supplies 410 Sprint Series feature at Susquehanna Speedway.

Kenny Edkin continued his dream season in the Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman as he turned an impressive run into his series leading fourth feature win of the season.

With 18 410 Sprints taking the green flag, Greg Hodnett outgunned fellow front row starter Tyler Walker to take control of the feature event.

Hodnett caught the rear of the field with nine laps in as sixth-starting Danny Dietrich moved into third behind Hodnett and third-starting Lucas Wolfe.

Dietrich got around Wolfe on lap 23 and was pounding the top of the speedway when the leaders encountered a pack of four slower cars. Hodnett was able to work through them but Dietrich jumped the wheel of Jim Shuster entering the third turn and drove into the wall, ending his night.

Hodnett held control on the double file restart but went on defense over the final laps as Wolfe continued to pound the top of the track looking for every inch of momentum.

As the white flag waved, he got a great bite off turn two, sliding by Hodnett and driving to the checkered flag. It was his eighth overall win this season in the Michael Barshinger owned No. 24 and he became the fourth different winner in as many BAPS events this season.

Following the top two were Brock Zearfoss, Brian Montieth and Walker with Adrian Shaffer earning the Hard Charger Award coming from 16th to sixth over Kyle Reinhardt, Mark Smith, Kyle Moody and Glenndon Forsythe.

Heats were won by Dietrich and Hodnett.

Edkin lined up 11th on the grid for the Super Sportsman main as Steve Fannasy held the point during the early laps.

Edkin’s march through the field was impressive, moving into the top five by the completion of lap two and was racing third with six laps complete.

Following a lap six restart, Chris Meleason and Edkin drove by Fannasy while Edkin made the race winning move on lap nine, driving under Meleason exiting the fourth turn.

Tony Jackson took second with 12 laps complete and appeared to have something for Edkin but after packing a wheel with mud, he never could mount a serious bid as Edkin drove off to score his fourth win of the year and strengthened his track point lead.

Jackson settled for the runner-up spot ahead of Scott Dellinger, Fannasy and Doug Dodson with Paul Miller coming from 19th to sixth ahead of Meleason, Russ Mitten, Hard Charger Mike Enders who started 24th and Gregg Foster.

Dellinger, Jackson and Dodson were heat winners for the 26-car field.

The next BAPS 410 Sprint Series event will be on Sunday, August 20 when the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions invade the York Haven oval for the Justin Snyder Salute to the Troops event. The PA Sprint Series/IMCA Sprints will join the All Stars on the fifth event of the season for the BAPS Sprint Series.

Susquehanna Speedway returns to action this Saturday, July 22 with the K1 Race Gear Summer Series for the 358 Sprint cars. The Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stocks and Superior Homes Extreme Stocks fill out the racing program which will also be ARCH (Auto Racing Club of Hagerstown) Night. Race time is 7PM.

SMITH, MATTERN, SNOOK & BUSSEY TAKE WINS ON JEFF’S AUTO BODY & RECYCLING DRIVER & FAN APPRECIATION NIGHT!

BIG PROMOTIONAL NIGHT MET WITH GREAT CROWD, RACING & RECORD-SETTING TRACK SURFACE!

SELINSGROVE, Pa. -- The ninth annual Jeff’s Auto Body & Recycling Center Driver & Fan Appreciation Night Saturday at Selinsgrove Speedway offered plenty of giveaways for race fans, FREE child and student general admission plus bonus money for the top three finishers in the 360 sprint cars, late models, pro stocks, and roadrunners.

The special night did not disappoint. A large crowd witnessed some of the best racing of the season on a great racing surface that produced plenty of wheel-to-wheel racing and a new 25-lap track record by Hayes Mattern of Beavertown in the super late model main event.

In the thrilling 360 sprint car main event, Adam Carberry was trading slidejobs in lap traffic with Mark Smith with Eric Tomecek lurking in the wings. Young Carberry had just secured the top spot with four to go from Smith off turn two when his car made hard contact with the outside wall ending his bid for his first Selinsgrove Speedway win.

Smith, who started tenth, timed his restart perfect to break away from Tomecek on his was to his third win of the season. Tomecek was second followed by point leader Davie Franek who started 12th on the racy half-mile surface.

Chad Layton earned a hard fought fourth place run after being involved in an early race accident. Nate Snyder came from 18th to finish fifth. Kevin Nouse was sixth across the line followed by Larry Kelleher, Ryan Higgins, Nyle Berkes, and Ryan Kissinger.

Brett Michalski, Adam Carberry, and Eric Tomecek won Sprint Car heat races.

In your best Tom Carnegie voice, "It's a new track record!" for Hayes Mattern in the Jeff's Auto body Super Late Models. It was Kenny Trevitz out front for the first half of the feature before Mattern moved to the lead on lap 11. Mattern had to maneuver through lap traffic while Trevitz and Jeff Rine dueled for the second spot. Rine soon secured the second spot and began to catch Mattern for the lead.

Mattern kept the advantage over one second for the remainder of the event on his way to his third win of the season in the Late Models. Rine was second followed by Trevitz, 11th starting Gene Knaub, and Bryan Bernheisel.

Steve Campbell, Tony Adams, Donnie Schick, Dave Stamm, and Meade Hahn were the top ten finishers.

Late Model heat races were won by Kenny Trevitz and Steve Campbell.

Kurt Wray broke away from a six car, race long battle for the second spot. Wray went unchallenged for much of the A&A Auto Stores Pro Stock feature. Curtis Lawton held second for a majority of the race before Dustin Snook snuck by. Snook started in 16th.

Tommy Slanker moved into third when Curtis Lawton and Shaun Lawton both made contact with the outside wall on the final laps of the race. AJ Hoffman was also able to get by for fourth.

After post race inspection was complete Wray's car was deemed illegal and Snook was awarded the victory. It was his first in the Pro Stock class.

Slanker was second followed by Hoffman, Shaun Lawton, and Curtis Lawton. Peanut Heintzelman finished in sixth. Seventh through tenth spots went too Bill Conrad, John Troxell, Wayne Shaffer, and Jake Buck.

Pro Stock heat winners were Shaun Lawton and Kyle Bachman.

Bob Bussey led the whole race for the Roadrunners on Saturday night on his way to his third win of the season. Bussey held off point leader Will Brunson just past half way. Bussey's win came over Ken Scheffler, Smith Cope, Tom Underwood, and Kyle Kissinger.

Will Brunson and Keith Bissinger took checkered flags in Roadrunner heats.

Next Saturday night the 360 Sprints will be joined by the Pro Stocks, Roadrunners, and the Moonshine Camo Route 35 Challenge Series for the Super Late Models. It is also Sunbury Eagle Club night. Racing begins at 7:30.

Wagner will meet and greet fans behind the grandstand from 5 – 6 pm on the night of the race and several car owners whose seat he was able to grace during his 30-plus year career will join him.

Joining Wagner for the autograph session will be Joe Harz of Elmer, New Jersey, who fielded the familiar Joe Harz No. 88H for many years that counts Wagner among its pilots.

Also on hand will be John Zemaitis, owner of the famed Zemco No. 1. Wagner at one point piloted the car for a stint in Florida.

Wagner also was behind the wheel of the Bill and Kay Tanger No. 07 in the late 1990s and while the Tangers have long since retired from the sport, both car owners will come back to the race track for the big event on September 9.

On his first night behind the wheel of the Walt Dyer No. 461 in 1999 Wagner piloted the car to a victory at Williams Grove Speedway before going on to pick up a win for the Dyer stables at Port Royal and Dyer too will be on hand for the pre-race activities on July 29.

Both Zemaitis and Dyer themselves have been honored previously with Port Royal Living Legend Awards.

Port Royal Speedway will present the 11th installment of the Living Legends Dream Race for 410 sprint cars coming up on Saturday night, July 29 at 7 pm.

The 410 sprint car drivers that enter the program are in line to receive thousands of dollars in contingency cash and prizes to go along with the more than $55,000 in purse money that is posted for the prestigious and lucrative event.

The super late models are also on the program and will race in a 25-lap, $2,000 to win, $200 to start main event.

The 2017 version of the Dream Race will honor two-time Port Royal Speedway track champion Mike Wagner, who has spent over 30 years of his life racing sprint cars, most prominently at Port Royal.

Over $2,500 in contingency cash will be given away to the sprint car drivers on the night in the forms of lap money, hard charger awards, fast time awards and more.

The Dream Race will again consist of time trials and a pair of 16-lap semi-main events that carry full purses worth nearly $10,000 alone before the big 35-lap Dream main brings more than $30,000 to the table.

Champion Racing Oil World Of Outlaws Summer Nationals This Week At Williams Grove

Two-Day Outlaws VS Posse Showdown Slated July 21 & 22

7/16/17

Mechanicsburg – Williams Grove Speedway will present the two-day Champion Racing Oil World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series Summer Nationals this Friday and Saturday night, July 21 and 22, at 7:30 pm.

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

Saturday’s 30-lap Summer Nationals finale will pay a hefty $20,000 to the victor.

The Williams Grove portion of the 50/50 on Friday and Saturday will be split between the local Kiwanis Club, The Bethesda Project and the Williams Grove Steam Engine Association.

Adult general admission for both shows is $30 with youth ages 13 – 20 priced at $15.

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

The mid-summer outlaws invasion for the Champion Racing Oil Summer Nationals will again stage a battle between the sprint car warring factions known as the Pennsylvania Posse and the World of Outlaws travelers.

Back in May when the outlaws made their first stop of the season at Williams Grove, outlaws pilots David Gravel and Shane Stewart turned back their posse counterparts and the locals will be looking for some redemption in this July invasion.

In last year’s Summer Nationals, the final score ended up somewhat of a tie, with the outlaws taking night number one at the hands of Daryn Pittman while local favorite and perennial track champion Lance Dewease took the 20K finale.

Dewease enters this week’s events with a pair of 2017 Williams Grove wins under his belt while Freddie Rahmer leads the track point standings over Danny Dietrich.

Fresh off of a strong Pennsylvania Speedweek Series, Rahmer counts three Williams Grove wins to his credit this year while Dietrich owns one.

Over the years, Posse stars Greg Hodnett, Dewease, Don Kreitz Jr., Fred Rahmer, Brian Leppo, Jason Johnson and Cody Darrah have taken victories in Summer Nationals action.

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

The current outlaws point leader, Schatz enters the 2017 Champion Racing Oil Summer Nationals at Williams Grove Speedway with not only the most series points to date but also the most wins.

With an 80-point lead over pursuer Brad Sweet, Schatz will be carrying 14 season checkers with him to the Cumberland County oval.

Other top outlaws winners this season include Gravel with nine while Sweet, Shane Stewart and Kerry Madsen have four each.

Dirt Track Legends Dewease And Stuhler Take Port Royal Mains

Sprint car top five finishers start ninth, eighth, 10th, 11th and 19th

Eric Irvin claims Kepner tribute for econo late models, Powell gets third in xtremes

7/9/17

Port Royal – A couple of dirt track racing legends scored the 410 sprint and super late model mains at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night, with Lance Dewease taking the sprint main and Gary Stuhler scoring the late model feature.

Impressively in the sprint car main, the top five finishers of Dewease, Greg Hodnett, Lucas Wolfe, Dylan Cisney and Blane Heimbach started ninth, eighth, 10th, 11th and 19th, respectively.

In the 25-lap Dave Kepner Tribute for econo late models, Eric Irvin proved victorious over a banner field of econos.

And in the xtreme stocks Bill Powell won his third race of the year.

Polesitter Anthony Fiore led the first lap of the 25-lap sprint car main before second starter Tyler Walker took over on the second tour with Kody Lehman in third and Dewease already up to fourth after a mile of racing.

Dewease motored into third with five away while Lehman too advanced to be up to second.

Lehman caught Walker for the lead on the sixth tour and took a stab at control only to see Walker’s momentum carry him back into the lead as Dewease took advantage and then relegated Lehman to third.

And then in the blink of an eye Dewease threw his No. 69K to the inside of Walker in the first and second turns to simply jet away with the lead on the backstretch.

The pace was slowed after the seventh lap was completed when Steve Buckwalter stopped on the frontchute and Dewease was back up to speed on the restart, motoring out to a 5.4 second lead by the halfway point.

Another restart just after halfway found Greg Hodnett up to second with a clear shot at Dewease but to no avail.

Dewease pulled away over the ensuing laps and had a 1.9 second lead with 10 laps to go.

With five laps to go Dewease was again into the backmarkers, with a 2.3 second lead but during those final laps the leader would start “hanging” in the corners, allowing Hodnett to dramatically slice into his advantage.

Hodnett would indeed run down Dewease for the win but time ran out with Dewease taking his fourth win of the year at the track and 104th of his career by .537 seconds at the finish.

Lucas Wolfe got around Dylan Cisney for third in the final two laps with Cisney ending up fourth and a passing clinic by Blane Heimbach placing him fifth at the finish.

Sixth through 10th went to Walker, Carl Bowser, Brock Zearfoss, Lehman and TJ Stutts.

Heats went to Fiore, Buckwalter and Zearfoss with Heimbach taking the consolation race.

Stuhler started on the pole of the 22-lap super late model main and wired the field for the victory that surprisingly was just the second of the veteran’s career.

Matt Parks chased Stuhler early and by the time that Stuhler entered lapped traffic on the eighth tour he had amassed a 4.11 second lead.

A caution flag bunched the field with 12 laps to go, finding Andy Haus up to second after starting sixth in the field.

Stuhler pulled away on the restart as he did no another with four laps to go but a final restart with two laps to go found Haus sticking with the leader and getting his nose to Stuhlers inside as the pair headed to the white flag.

But Stuhler proved too stout for Haus, taking the win by 1.306 seconds with Tim Smith Jr. finishing third followed by Mike Lupfer and Rance Garlock.

Sixth through 10th went to Nick Dickson, Matt Parks, Dylan Yoder, Jason Schmidt and Chris Casner.

Heats went to Dickson, Scott Flickinger and Haus.

JR Toner started on the pole of the 25-lap Kepner Tribute for econo late models and led the way over Dillan Stake for numerous laps with Stake chasing him into traffic with 13 laps to go.

Irvin started ninth in the main and methodically worked his way through the front-runners, racing into second on the 17th tour.

Using the top groove, Irvin quickly ran down the leader and marched into control with four laps to go.

Toner ended up second by 2.145 seconds, followed by Stake, Derrick Garman and 26th starter Andrew Yoder.

Sixth through 10th went to Tim Krape, Tim Fedder, Devin Hart, Alan Sagi and Jared Fulkroad.

Heats went to Garman, Hart and Krape.

Bill Powell took the lead from Kevin Imes on the sixth tour before speeding to the checkers, his third of the year at the oval.

Imes chased Powell all the way to the finish with Jason Zook crossing the line third followed by Pete Leister and Keith Strummel.

JOHN GLEIM JR. EXCAVATING NIGHT

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Saturday, July 22, 2017 - NO RACING

Saturday, July 29, 2017 (7:30 PM) - David Webb Tool Company Night - 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints, and 358 Late Models (ARCH Night)(Night #1 of Lincoln/Trail-Way 358 Sprint Car “Shootout” [finale on Fri, 8/4 @ Trail-Way])

Saturday, August 5, 2017 (7:30 PM) - DCS School of Driving Night - 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints, Classic Racing Series, & York Flooring KIDS BIG WHEEL RACES (Night #1 of three-track “Shootout” series for 410 sprints)

FORSYTHE PILOTS WISNER FAMILY #2W TO FOURTH CAREER WIN IN LINCOLN 410 SPRINTS;

Criswell cruises to super sportsman win; Chaney wins second straight in Central PA Legends

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA – July 15, 2017 – York’s Glenndon Forsythe added his name to the 2017 Lincoln winner’s list by claiming the John Gleim Excavating 25-lap feature for 410 sprint cars on Saturday night. Handicapping placed Forsythe on the outside of Dwayne Gutshall on the front row for the start. He grabbed the lead entering the first turn and led every lap.

“Obviously, starting spot means a lot, but this is a brand new chassis tonight,” said Forsythe upon exiting the Wisner family Dynatech Controls/Livingston Lawn Care #2W in victory lane, “We struggled and struggled with the other one. Art’s not with us anymore, but we’re still using his set-ups. We appreciate everything he’s done for us. I want to dedicate this one to my buddy Jimmy Walker. We weren’t able to get it done in his car, but this one’s for you, buddy.”

Though he led the entire way, lapped traffic and handicapped cars coming up through the field closed the gap over the final laps. A lead of 5.63 seconds on lap 10 was cut to 2.06 seconds at the end. Steve Owings ran second the entire way.

“I knew we were setting a pretty good pace. I hooked the wall going into one the one lap, and struggled getting around the 69 car. Tim Glatfelter was getting around good, and I knew those other guys were going pretty good. Our pace was good, and I didn’t want to get too crazy and out of shape unless I saw somebody. I just needed to get back to the top and roll around there.”

Eleventh-starting Brian Montieth finished third after a lengthy battle with Cory Haas and Danny Dietrich over the second half of the race. Those three swapped spots several times, with Dietrich crossing fourth and Haas settling for fifth.

Sixth through tenth were Freddie Rahmer, Jim Siegel, Chase Dietz, Gerard McIntyre, Jr., and Gutshall.

Heats for the 24 “410” Sprinters were won by Dietz, McIntyre, and Forsythe.

Martinsville, West Virginia’s Chad Criswell raced to his third career Lincoln win in the 25-lap super sportsman feature. Criswell started fifth and got around Rich Eichelberger on lap three. He caught polesitter and race-long leader Frankie Herr for the lead on lap 11 and dominated the rest of the way, crossing 2.94 seconds ahead of Mike Enders, who got by Herr on lap 18.

Herr, Kenny Edkin, and Paul Miller completed the top five.

Heats for the 18 Super Sportsman were won by Russ Mitten and Criswell.

Mason Chaney started on the pole and led every lap of the 20-lap Central PA Legends feature despite race-long pressure from Bob Stough and late-race pressure from Scott Houdeshell and Harlon Leppo, who joined the chase but settled for third and fourth. Lucas Montgomery finished fifth.

It was Chaney’s second straight Lincoln win and the third of his Lincoln career.

Heats for the 30 Central PA Legends were won by Chaney, Stough, and Cody Haines, with Alex Robinson winning the consolation.

Lincoln Speedway will be dark next Saturday night, July 22nd with Williams Grove headlining the weekend action with the Annual Summer Nationals.

Lincoln will be back in action the following Saturday night, July 29th, with David Webb Tool Company Night AND ARCH Night featuring the 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints, and 358 Late Models.

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Second-place starter Rico Abreu of St. Helena, Calif., led polesitter Anthony Macri at the start of the Jan Opperman/Dick Bogar Memorial Sunday in the PA Sprint Car Speedweek finale presented by Middleswarth Potato Chips at Selinsgrove Speedway.

Macri, running his first full Speedweek, pulled to Abreu's rear bumper on lap 11 while Abreu, an established nationwide star also running his first full Speedweek and making his first career start at Selinsgrove, negotiated his way through lap traffic before Marci's car slowed to a stop after losing an engine on the home stretch.

Once the green flag came back out Abreu drove away from third-place starter Danny Dietrich who had climbed to second.

Dietrich needed to win and to have sixth-place starter Lucas Wolfe finish eighth or worse to claim his second Speedweek title in a row. Wolfe was in search of his third title.

As Dietrich kept close tabs on race leader Abreu, Wolfe battled just outside the top five in sixth.

The car on the move after the restart for the Macri issue was Blane Heimbach. Heimbach raced his way into the top five and then grabbed fourth from Greg Hodnett on lap 16.

By the lap 20 mark, Abreu had opened a three second lead. Dietrich started to make up ground, cutting the lead down to one second, while Abreu again began to tip toe through lap traffic. This time the story was different though as Dietrich never got close enough to challenge Abreu.

At the end of the 30 lap feature, Abreu was the driver out front claiming the $5,000 in his first central Pennsylvania 410 sprint car win in the Always Racing Speedweek finale.

In victory lane Abreu said he was pacing himself through traffic knowing he could only go as fast as the cars in front of him. He added that one of his biggest support groups is in central Pennsylvnia and he thanked the fans for their support of not only him, but the week in general. Abreu showed his appreciation by joining fans after the race in the grandstand area at his merchandise trailer to sign autographs.

Danny Dietrich’s second place effort was not enough to net last year’s Speedweek winner and champion a second title. Lucas Wolfe crossed the line in seventh adding his third Spedweek crown (2007, 14, 17). Wolfe credited his team and their efforts all week, but admitted he was a little disappointed the team didn’t get a victory considering how strong they were leading into the week. This is Wolfe’s third title with three different teams. Wolfe won the Ray Tilly Classic at Selinsgrove Speedway in June.

Abreu, Dietrich, Dale Blaney, Heimbach, and Greg Hodnett were the top five. It was Blaney’s third third- place finish of the week.

Former 358 Sprint Car winner at Selinsgrove Speedway Brock Zearfoss was sixth followed by Wolfe, TJ Stutts, James McFadden, and Ryan Smith.

The SprintCarUnlimited.com fast time award was presented to Trey Starks. Fast Tees also put up a bonus that was presented to George Streaker.

Heat races went to Hodnett, Blaney, and Dietrich and the B-main was won by Tyler Walker.

In the 305 Sprint Car feature Kyle Ganoe was running third when the top two tangled in turns three and four and Ganoe inherited the race lead. The old adage that sometimes it’s better to be lucky than good came to mind, although Ganoe was running strong. Anytime a driver can jump from third to first is a good break.

Austin Bishop led early before he and Tyler Reeser got together on lap nine. Both drivers were out of the event. Reeser was running the high side of the speedway and Ganoe did the same the rest of the event getting away from any challenges from second place Jaremi Hanson for the win.

Hanson, Zach Newlin, Nathan Gramley, and Dave Grube were the top five finishers. Cale Reigle, Mike Alleman, George Riden, Erin Statlern, and Jared Sionkowski made up the top ten finishers.

Hanson and Ganoe were heat race winners.

The A&A Pro Stocks were on the card as the night cap and gave the fans a thriller as Shaun Lawton made a bold outside move to pass Kyle Bachman for second and then race leader AJ Hoffman as well for the lead.

Hoffman led the field, which predominantly ran the inside line, for the first nine laps of the 15 lap feature. Lawton was able to make the move on the outside line on lap ten and never looked back on his way to his second win of the season.

Dustin Snook recovered from an early race accident to finish second followed by Bachman, Tommy Slanker, and Hoffman. Jake Buck, Bill Conrad, Nick Gentile, Lori Croop, and AJ Stroup finished out the top ten.

Bachman won the heat race for the Pro Stocks.

The ninth annual Jeff’s Auto Body & Recycling Center Driver & Fan Appreciation Night Saturday, July 15, at Selinsgrove Speedway will offer plenty of giveaways for race fans, FREE child and student general admission for ages 17 and younger, plus bonus money for the top three finishers in the 360 sprint car, late model, pro stock, and roadrunner feature events. Race time is 7:30 p.m.

MITTEN GETS BIRTHDAY WIN IN SUPER SPORTSMAN Craker Wins 305s, Houdeshell Scores in Legends

By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA…7/8/17 After a tough early season, defending track champion Russ Mitten appears to be headed in the right direction.

The Newville, PA veteran gave himself a great Birthday gift Saturday night at Susquehanna Speedway as he raced to his second win of the season in the 25-lap Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman feature.

The win was his sixth straight top five finish at the York Haven oval as he now has climbed into third spot in the season long point battle.

Front row starter Steve Fannasy grabbed the early lead and led through lap 10 when Mitten, who started eighth made the race winning pass to be scored the leader with eleven laps complete.

The race was marred by four red flags-lap one for Lanny Hake, lap four for Greg Foster, lap 14 for Troy Hockenberry and a fire on lap 21 for Doug Dodson. There were no driver injuries.

Mitten was able to keep his Newville Electrical Services, RPM Chassis No. 77 out front after taking the lead and was able to keep Scott Dellinger at bay following the final restart.

Fannasy held on for third place over Devin Beidel and current track point leader and 18th starter Kenny Edkin coming home fifth.

Sixth through 10th were 17th starter Jay Fannasy, 23rd starter and Hard Charger Mike Enders, Chris Meleason, Timmie Barrick and Tom Wyckoff.

Heats for the 30 Super Sportsman were won by Frankie Herr (who scratched from the feature), Wyckoff and Hake. Edkin won the consolation.

Red Land High School student Kyle Craker scored an impressive first career win in the 20-lap Freedmont® Mortgage Lending PASS/IMCA Sprint car feature.

After Drew Ritchey led lap one and stopped on the track to bring out a caution, Craker stormed from his fifth starting spot to take the lead with two laps complete and drove off from the field to post the win in just his eighth start in the 305 Sprint car at the young age of 16.

Ken Duke, Jr. was second trailed by Kyle Ganoe, 15th starter and Hard Charger Zach Newlin and Stephanie Dodson with Darren Miller, Billy Ney, Kyle Smith, Jay Krout and Jaremi Hanson the top ten finishers.

Erin Statler, Tyler Reeser and Ganoe won heats for the 30 305 Sprints.

After leading the first 13 laps then losing it on lap 14, Scott Houdeshell used a final lap pass on Mason Chaney to score his second win of the year in the ServiceMaster Clean Central PA Legends feature. The feature was shortened to 15 laps due to curfew.

Houdeshell led laps one through 13 before Chaney took the lead for a lap only to have Houdeshell take the lead and win with Chaney, Bob Stough, Hayden Pascoe, Lucas Montgomery, Liam Heaton, Tim O’Sheehan, Scott Smith, Travis Perry and Chandler Pagnotta completing the top ten finishers.

Chaney and Pascoe won heats for the 22 Legends.

The 25-lap Bernheisel Race Cars 358 Late Model Feature and 20-lap Superior Homes Extreme Stock Feature were both postponed due to curfew. Rains hit the track just as gates opened, delaying the racing program. The Extreme Stock feature will be made up on July 29th while the Late Model feature will be completed on August 5th.

Dave Latsha and Ben Whitaker won heats for the 18 late models while Donnie Broderick and Michael Smith won heats for the 15 Extreme Stocks.

Dewease Wins Port Royal 103rd In 7K Speedweek Event

7/8/17

Port Royal – Lance Dewease scored the 103rd sprint car victory of his career at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night, taking $7,000 in the 27th annual Pennsylvania Speedweek 30-lap event for 410 sprint cars.

In the 25-lap Moon Shine Camo Rt. 35 Dirt Late Model Challenge Series, Danville’s Jeff Rine pulled out a squeaker after a duel with Coleby Frye.

Only the first lap of the 30-lap speedweek feature for sprint cars was completed when Matt Campbell stopped on the frontchute with rear end issued on his machine.

Polesitter Dale Blaney led the first lap over fourth starter Dewease of Fayetteville.

On the restart, Blaney tried hard to hold off Dewease’s challenge but he could only control the event for one more lap before Dewease rode the inside lane in the first and second turns to take control.

And when he got to the front, he began pulling away, entering the rear of the field on the eighth lap to start working traffic while holding a 2.38 second lead with 10 laps completed.

At the halfway point, Dewease had built his advantage to 4.02 seconds with Lucas Wolfe chasing him in second spot.

Wolfe started second in the field and took second from Blaney on the eighth tour as Dewease entered traffic.

With 12 laps to go, another caution flag regrouped the field, wiping out what was by that time a 6.06 second lead for Dewease.

The caution flag appeared after 11th runner Danny Dietrich hit the outside first turn wall and developed a right rear flat tire.

Blaney, Trey Starks and Greg Hodnett followed the lead pair when action resumed.

Wolfe was unable to mount a challenge on the restart and Dewease drove off, headed to the victory but a final caution flag with two laps to go for a stopped Rico Abreu slowed his pace again.

Abreu started 10th in the field and was racing seventh at the time.

Dewease again got away on the final restart, taking his second win of this speedweek by 1.856 seconds, ahead of Wolfe, Blaney, Starks and Hodnett.

Sixth through 10th went to Blane Heimbach, Freddie Rahmer, Brock Zearfoss, Mike Wagner and Dylan Cisney.

The mid and late stages of the race showcased a spirited and hectic five-car battle for fourth between Starks, Hodnett, Heimbach, Zearfoss and James McFadden.

McFadden ended up with a left front flat tire on the 18th lap and had to rejoin at the rear of the field.

Heats for the 38-car field went to Danny Dietrich, James McFadden, Greg Hodnett and Brock Zearfoss with Matt Campbell taking the consolation race.

Fast time was set by Dewease with a lap of 16.153 seconds.

After Port Royal, Wolfe took the speedweek point lead going into the final race of the series on Sunday night at Selinsgrove Speedway.

The 25-lap Rt. 35 Late Model Challenge event saw Chad Hollenbeck lead from the pole for the first seven laps before Coleby Frye, who started fourth, powered around the outside and into control.

And while Frye was advancing into the lead, eighth starter Jeff Rine was flexing his muscle, working through the top five cars.

Rine Took second away from Hollenbeck on the ninth circuit and then saw the field bunched up a lap later when the first caution flag of the race appeared.

Running the cushion with Rine using low side, the pair spent the next 15 laps racing one another for the lead with Rine edging ahead in turns one and two while Frye powered around the top through turns three and four.

At times Frye, was able to sneak away from Rine when he took his bottom groove away in the first and second turns by Rine was always there and as the leaders entered the rear of the field with five laps to go it was either driver’s race to win.

Meanwhile, 20th starter Dylan Yoder was using a rail to run through the field, getting by Andy Haus for third with four laps to go while chasing down the leaders.

Rine used lapped traffic to his advantage to get ahead of Frye for the lead as the pair raced to the two-to-go sign and Yoder was there for the lead as well.

Rine beat Frye back to the line to lead lap 24 with Yoder all over the pair.

Rine ended up scoring the event, his second of the year at the track, while Yoder took second from Frye on the final turn.

With the win, Rine took a one point lead in the 2017 Moon Shine Camo Rt. 35 Challenge Series point standings.

Frye ended up third followed by Andy Haus and Nick Dickson.

Sixth through 10th went to Mike Lupfer, Jim Yoder, Chad Hollenbeck, Matt Parks and Trent Brenneman.

Heats went to Steve Campbell, Brenneman and Hollenbeck while Matt Parks took the consolation race.

TODD GRACEY CLAIMS FIRST K1 RACE GEAR 358 SUMMER SERIES EVENT WITH LINCOLN WIN;
Travis McClelland wins All-American Outlaws feature; Richie Hitzler best of 600 Xcel Modifieds
ABBOTTSTOWN, PA – July 8, 2017 – Todd Gracey was hoping to win one more race while he was still in his 40’s.
And he did, with just two days to spare.
And he picked a good one to win; the first K1 Race Gear Summer Series event of the year in Saturday’s 25-lap, $1,500 to win 358 sprint car feature at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.
For most of the race, it looked like fifth-starting Jeff Halligan was going to run away from the field. Polesitter Kody Hartlaub paced the field for the first six laps. Halligan methodically worked his way to the front, driving around Gracey for third on the fifth lap, got by Kyle Abrahims for second on the sixth lap, and took the lead from Hartlaub on lap seven.
From there, Halligan was the class of the field, and opened up a straightaway lead before he caught lapped traffic on lap 11. He was working his way through heavy lapped traffic when disaster struck on lap 19. Brent Shearer and Kevin Nouse got together in turns one and two, with Shearer flipping and collecting Halligan in the process.
Hartlaub assumed the race lead for the restart, but a double-file restart put Gracey alongside Hartlaub. He took the lead at the drop of the green and led the rest of the way.
“Jeff (Halligan)’s bad luck turned the race over to me. I definitely wouldn’t have caught him,” said Gracey upon exiting the Evan Taylor/Blue Ribbon Exteriors #19G in victory lane, “I was trying to get to second, and I didn’t think I was going to get that far. With these double-file restarts, it’s actually benefits you if you’re running second or third. This is a 2004 car that we put back together. Seems like it works.”
A hard charging tenth-starting Chandler Leiby closed the gap over the final laps, but settled for second .68 seconds behind. Third through fifth were Tyler Ross (Halligan’s teammate for the night), 12th-starting Chase Dietz, and Scott Fisher.
Heats for the 41 “358” Sprints were won by Fisher, Hartlaub, Doug Hammaker, and Ross, with hard charger Adrian Shaffer (who advanced from 21st stating spot to finish tenth in the feature) winning the consolation.
Lebanon’s Richie Hirtzler held off Aaron Bowes to win the 20-lap feature for the visiting 600 Xcel modifieds. His final margin of victory over the only driver to ever win an Xcel race at Lincoln was .44 seconds, with Korey Inglin, early race leader Jon Josko (who led laps 2-16), and Steve Sterner completing the top five in a tightly-contested event between the top four.
Heats for the 21 600 Xcel Modifieds were won by Josko and Nathan Brinker.
Travis McClelland completed a perfect night by racing to the win in the 20-lap All-American Outlaw feature.
McClelland led the first lap from the pole, yielded to outside front row starter Tim Fake for the next seven laps, then reclaimed the top spot for good on lap nine. Fake settled for second, with Jeff McCauley, Jim Minter, and Danny Holmes rounding out the top five.
Heats for the 11 All-American Outlaws were won by McClelland and Gary Moreland, Sr.

LEVAN MACHINE AND TRUCK EQUIPMENT present SMOKE ON THE HILL. . . . . . .

TONY STEWART & RICO ABREU TO RACE WITH ALL STAR SPRINTS AT GRANDVIEW THURSDAY, AUGUST 17

https://i1.wp.com/www.tothracing.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/ts-headshot-black.jpg?resize=225%2C300https://i2.wp.com/www.tothracing.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/Rico2.jpg?resize=214%2C300

BECHTELSVILLE, PA (July 7, 2017) – It all goes down at sundown, Thursday night, August 17 when two of the country’s most popular drivers head towards ‘The Hill’ in a special event of epic proportions as the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series continues at the Grandview Speedway. And yes, there will be, Smoke on the Hill.

This event, presented by Levan Machine and Truck Equipment set for Thursday, August 17, will find three-time NASCAR Cup Champion Tony Stewart and two-time Chili Bowl Nationals champion, Rico Abreu, strapping into a 410 sprint car to compete with the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions. Also on the program is a series of qualifying events leading up to a 25 lap Sportsman feature event.

Advance tickets are available through the website at www.thunderonthehillracingseries.com or, just call 443 513 4456. It’s this easy. Please leave your name and phone number and the number of tickets you will need. You may pay for your tickets and pick them up on race night, Thursday, August 17 at the Will Call Window after 4 PM. This will entitle you to enter the grandstands at 4:30 PM. General admission tickets go on sale at 5 PM. Advance tickets will only be sold up to 9 PM on Wednesday night, August 16. Adult admission prices are $30, Children 6-11 are $10, Children 5 and under will be admitted Free. The pit fee is $35 and a license is not required.

Brought to you by Levan Machine & Truck Equipment, you’ll find “Smoke on the Hill” and Rico Abreu when the green flag falls for the third Annual Thunder Cup — a 30 lap, $5,000 to win 410 sprint car special event.

Levan Machine & Truck Equipment located in Fleetwood, PA (just outside of Reading, PA) is part of the Thunder on the Hill family of sponsors. Levan Machine & Truck Equipment is a full-service machine shop and custom truck up-fitting center for Central Pennsylvania. Levan also provides a full line of truck bodies, van interiors, and utility and service bodies.

The Levan Machine & Truck Equipment visit will mark Tony Stewart’s first in action racing appearance at the Grandview Speedway located about 50 miles south of NASCAR mainstay, Pocono Raceway.

“Grandview was one of the first events I added to my schedule this year,” Tony Stewart explained. “After attending the race last year as a spectator and owner of the All Stars, I knew I had to participate in the race this year. As a sprint car fan, it is one of the most exciting tracks to watch a sprint car race. I cannot wait to get my [No.] 14 car unloaded on the Hill. The competition will be nothing short of spectacular. I hope we can have a good night and put ourselves in a position to compete for the win.”

Abreu, one of the most exciting and most popular Sprint Car drivers in the country is anxious to get back to the Berks County dirt track. Abreu raced in the July 4th PA Sprint Speed Week event and was in contention from the outset but an early race tangle took him out of the run for the win. Abreu stated. “I’ve got a lot of fans in Pennsylvania and I don’t get to race that far east too much, but definitely look forward to that night with the All Stars and all the tough Pennsylvania cars. It’s always fun going to different tracks especially in an area known for some of the best sprint car drivers in the country.”

Stewart and Abreu join more many full-time Arctic Cat All Stars competitors, but while the All Stars bring an elite group of drivers, a battalion of Central Pennsylvania’s top stars are prepared to defend their home turf – and when the greatest Sprint Car drivers in the world do battle it is sure to be unpredictable, especially “on the hill”.

Expected top guns include nine-time Grandview 410 Sprint Car winner and six-time Thunder on the Hill Champion, Greg Hodnett; along with past Thunder Cup winner Danny Dietrich, Lucas Wolfe, Freddie Rahmer, Alan Krimes, Brandon Rahmer, Ryan Taylor and Ryan Smith. While series regulars include Chad Kemenah, Caleb Armstrong, Max Stambaugh, T.J. Michael and Caleb Helms.

Additional news and updates about this event will be available on all of the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series social media channels.

NAPA Auto Parts continues their long run with the Thunder on the Hill Racing Series as the title sponsor joined by Pioneer Pole Buildings, Levan Machine and Truck Equipment, Quaker Steak & Lube, and GALCO Business Communications.

Trey Starks Scores Big At Williams Grove In Speedweek Mitch Smith Memorial

Washington pilot etches name in oval records for first time

Justin Weaver steals limited late models in final corner

7/7/17

Mechanicsburg – West Coast talent met East Coast history and prestige on Friday night as Puyallup, Washington’s Trey Starks picked up the $10,000 to win Mitch Smith Memorial for sprint cars at Williams Grove Speedway in a dominating performance.

Starks wired the field for his first career Williams Grove victory that came in the biggest race to be run in the 27th annual Pennsylvania Speedweek Series for 410 sprint cars.

Originally slated to start third in the field, Starks slid to the pole in the 30-lap Smith Memorial when the initial start was called back and the first and second rows were swapped for the next attempted start.

Only one caution period slowed the race pace, after just the first lap was completed, when Rodney Westhafer stopped in the fourth turn.

The final 29 circuits went non-stop at a dizzying pace on the lightning-fast surface that was wetted by a late day shower.

Aboard Scott Gobrecht’s No. 44 machine, Starks had amassed a straightaway lead over the field by the seventh circuit and he entered the backmarkers just one tour later.

Matt Campbell tried to keep Starks in sight during the early going but it took traffic for Campbell to narrow the gap, which he did to a one-turn advantage with one-third of the race completed.

But Campbell would succumb to the advances of Brock Zearfoss at the halfway point and then Zearfoss gave Starks his only challenge of the event when he was able to sneak in amid heavy and hectic traffic with 11 laps to go.

Zearfoss had been able to dial in the leader as Starks tried repeatedly to work the outside lane to put cars a lap down but after nearly flipping his sprinter on more than one occasion as he thundered through the corners, Starks pulled back to the inside and instead chose to bide his time, looking for opportunities to move forward on the low side.

And that strategy proved to be a winning one for Starks who then was able to open up another sizeable lead during the final eight laps, pulling out to another straightaway advantage at the finish.

Starks’ win came by 4.148 seconds over Zearfoss, Aaron Ott, Campbell and Lucas Wolfe.

Ott moved into third with nine laps to go but failed to mount any further challenges.

Sixth through 10th went to Ryan Smith, James McFadden, Lance Dewease, Danny Dietrich and Greg Hodnett.

Heats went to Ott, Zearfoss, Eric Tomecek and McFadden with Cory Haas taking the consolation race.

Fast time was set by Ryan Smith with a lap of 16.648 seconds.

Justin Weaver of Williamsport, Md., was able to pull off a last lap, last corner pass for the win in the Mason Dixon Shootout feature for limited late models.

Weaver moved into second on the fourth lap of the 20-lap main and raced door to door with leader Derrick Quade for the final 10 laps of the event.

Quade was scored the leader from the beginning thorugh the 11th lap before Weaver nosed ahead at the line with eight laps to go.

But the next time around Quade had turned the tables and had the lead again at the line but it was a hard fought lead that Quade was holding onto.

Weaver repeatedly got to Quade’s inside in the corners and at times would nose ahead only to have Quade be scored the leader at the line.

But on the final corner of the final lap, Quade bucked just enough on the cushion to allow Weaver enough room to pull ahead to a narrow victory as the pair crossed the finish line side by side with Weaver’s nose first to hit the finish line.

Quade was second followed by Ralph Morgan Jr., Eric Irvin and Dan Zechman.

Sixth through 10th went to Randy Christine, Todd Snook, Devin Frey, Devin Hart and Frankie Gordon.

Heats went to Bryan Bernheisel, Daulton Bigler and Alan Sagi.

OWINGS CELEBRATES 50TH BIRTHDAY WITH FOURTH TRAIL-WAY WIN OF THE YEAR; WEBER, STREMMEL, JASON CHRONISTER OTHER FRIDAY NIGHT WINNER

HANOVER, PA (6/30/2017) – “They certainly didn’t make it easy. I guess they don’t care it’s my 50th!”

So said Steve Owings after giving himself a 50th birthday present in Friday night’s 358 sprint car feature at Trail-Way Speedway.

Owings started third, dropped to fourth behind fourth-starting Isaac Sneeringer on the first lap, and was running there when polesitter Wyatt Hinkle and sixth-starting David Holbrook made contact and brought out the caution flag on turn two of lap two. Holbrook never stopped, but the yellow flag turned into a red when Hinkle complained of pain between his shoulders. He was treated at the track by emergency personnel and released.

Owings drove back around Sneeringer for second on the restart, and drove under outside front row starter and race-long leader Cody Fletcher for the top spot on turn four of lap ten. From there, he dominated the rest of the way, crossing 1.75 seconds ahead of Sneeringer, who took second from Fletcher on lap 12.

Fletcher, Holbrook, and Joe Trone, Jr. completed the top five.

“Hopefully, we’re making these guys faster,” said Owings, “It sure helps me getting this seat time.”

“This is a great racing surface,” continued Owings, “Some of those guys from Lincoln ought to come here.”

Qualifiers for the ten sprint cars were won by Mike Bittinger and Owings. Bittinger jumped from his car and rolled onto the ground after experiencing a fire in his race car during a 16th-lap caution. He was uninjured.

Bradley Weber raced to his second win of the year and the 11th win of his Trail-Way career in the 20-lap 600cc micro-sprint feature. His margin of victory was 2.16 seconds over Jim Young, with Steven Bull (who led the first 11 laps) third, hard charger Jesse Snyder (who started 12th) fourth, and Tyler Leese fifth.

Young and Leese were the heat winners for the 15 micros on hand.

Jeremy Stremmel, started second and led every lap of the 20-lap street stock feature. It was was also Stremmel’s second win of the year and the ninth of his TW career. Zach Myers finished second, with Michael Goodwin and Travis Leh the only other two cars running at the end. Dalton Myers was credited with fifth.

Stremmel also won the lone heat for the seven street stocks in attendance.

Jason Chronister started on the outside of the front row and led every lap of the 15-lap main for limited stocks.

It was Chronister’s third win of the year and the 17th win of his career at Trail-Way. He crossed .43 seconds ahead of polesitter Robbie Carroll, who held off 17th-starting Terry Hartlaub and Justin Wagaman in a wild three-car race for the runner-up spot. Roy Denike was fifth.

Carroll and Jason Chronister were heat winners for the 20 limited stocks.

Next Friday, July 14th, Trail-Way swings back into action with the 358 Late Models, the Big Wheel Street Stocks, Trail-Way Street Stocks, and Limited Stocks. The Auto Racing Club of Hagerstown will be in attendance for “ARCH Night,” and will be offering $3 off general admission with proof of membership. Gates open at 5:30 p.m., with heats scheduled to 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.

THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES

KYLE LARSON HOLDS OFF THE PENNSYLVANIA POSSE’S FINEST. . . .

WINS THUNDER SERIES PA SPRINT FEATURE AS DUANE HOWARD TOPS 43 CAR MODIFIED FIELD

BECHTELSVILLE, PA (July 4, 2017) -- On a Fourth of July celebration of speed, Kyle Larson wowed a jam-packed NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series crowd and claimed his third straight Pennsylvania 410 Sprint Car Speedweek victory, while Duane Howard scored the win in the NASCAR Modified 30-lap event at the Grandview Speedway on Tuesday Night in an event presented by Pioneer Pole Buildings at the Grandview Speedway.

Larson may have taken the checkered flag, but the region’s top Sprint Car aces – dubbed the Pennsylvania Posse – didn’t take it easy on the current NASCAR Cup Series Point Leader.

“I felt like I was playing defense all night, tonight,” Larson said in Victory Lane. “Ryan Smith had a great car. I definitely got a little lucky.”

Ryan Taylor and Greg Hodnett led the field to the drop of the fireworks filled 410 Sprint Car A-Main. On the initial start, Larson – who started in the third position – shot inside Taylor in a three-wide battle for the lead. Hodnett and Larson engaged in an expert duel for the top spot, until contact between the two sent Hodnett’s No. 27 machine spinning towards the outside guardrail.

Larson set a rapid pace on the restart, with TJ Stutts challenging for the lead. A lap 8 caution stacked the field, and a three-wide battle for the second spot ensued with Stutts holding off Taylor and Rico Abreu. It would be Abreu and Stutts with the short straw after contact between the two left both cars spinning.

Maintaining the lead through consecutive yellows, Larson pulled away from the pack at Lap 11 with Taylor battling Ryan Smith for second place. The red flag flew for the first time on the 12th circuit when, three-time Thunder on the Hill winner, Tyler Walker got upside down in spectacular fashion, collecting Brandon Rahmer in the process.

While Larson held a comfortable lead on the restart, Ryan Smith began closing in – looking to end Larson’s five-race Sprint Car win streak.

A full-house of race fans leaped to their feet when Smith muscled around Larson exiting turn 2, carrying that momentum into turn 3 before clipping the wall, sending The Warko Group No. 94 of Smith flipping wildly into the third turn. A dejected – but unscathed -- Smith exited the car to a standing ovation from race fans.

Inaugural Thunder Cup winner, Danny Dietrich would restart in the second position – but Larson was too quick for ‘Double D’. Aside from the leader, Dietrich had his hands full with third-place runner Freddie Rahmer who maneuvered his way into the second spot with five laps remaining.

Larson held the lead for the remaining five circuits claiming his third consecutive Pennsylvania Speedweek win – and his first NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series victory. Freddie Rahmer finished in second – from an 18th-place starting position, Danny Dietrich in third, Ryan Taylor in fourth and Alan Krimes fifth.

Oley, PA’s Duane Howard claimed his second consecutive NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series win steering the Norm’s Save Station No. 357 machine. Howard – who started in the fourth position – powered around the outside of Craig VonDohren on the 15th lap and went unchallenged throughout the remainder of the 30-lap NASCAR 358 Modified feature event.

VonDohren brought the Dick Biever-owned No. 14s home in the second position, Ryan Godown of Ringoes, NJ finished in third from a 12th-place starting position, popular NY Modified driver Anthony Perrego finished in the fourth spot, and Mike Gular rounded out the top five.

The next NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series event at Grandview Speedway takes place on Thursday, August 17. The 3rd Annual Thunder Cup event features the Arctic All Star Circuit of Champions – with 3-time NASCAR Cup Series Champion, Tony Stewart and popular dirt-track driver, Rico Abreu competing in action.

NAPA Auto Parts continues their long run with the Thunder on the Hill Racing Series as the title sponsor joined by Pioneer Pole Buildings, Levan Machine and Truck Equipment and GALCO Business Communications.

Notes: 25 410 Sprint Cars and 43 Modifieds were signed in for Thunder on the Hill Action

NASCAR drivers Kyle Larson and Kasey Kahne greeted fans and signed autographs throughout the evening while competing in the 410 Sprint Car division.

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 9, 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 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.

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 Danny Dietrich of Gettysburg.

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 original covered grandstand that is still in use today. Bogar passed away in 2014 at the age of 86.

In June, Lucas Wolfe of Mechanicsburg won the Ray Tilley Classic for 410 sprint cars at the track. The 410 sprint cars are also slated to compete at Selinsgrove in the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions Jim Nace Memorial 35th National Open Sept. 16. Selinsgrove Raceway Park will present a program of go kart racing including a $200-to-win pro series race for the adult cage animal class at 7 p.m. this Friday, July 7. Track gates will open at 5:30 p.m.

LARSON WOWS HUGE CROWD WITH “BAD ASS WIN” IN PENNSYLVANIA SPEEDWEEK SHOW AT LINCOLN SPEEDWAY;

Steve Wilbur claims first sprint car win in 358s, becomes 11th winner in 12 races so far this year

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA – July 3, 2017 – NASCAR Monster Energy points leader Kyle Larson made it official in Monday night’s Pennsylvania Speedweek show at Lincoln Speedway. There is NOTHING he can’t do in a race car.

“I’ve now won in Central PA! This is bad ass!!” exclaimed Larson following a wing dance in victory lane, “Last night (at Path Valley) was my style of track and tonight wasn’t, so this is awesome to get the win in front of a huge crowd here. I thank all of you for coming out.”

Time trials and a four-car inversion for the feature placed NASCAR stars Kasey Kahne and Larson beside each other on row five for the start. Larson quickly went to the top and to the front, advancing to fourth by the end of the third lap.

He caught Trey Starks for third a lap later, took second from third-starting Alan Krimes on lap six, and then made his race-winning move around polesitter and race-long leader Lucas Wolfe.

“I couldn’t believe the top was that good. I’ve watched so many videos of Krimes here cruising around the bottom, so I knew I was going to have move down eventually,” said Larson, “I wasn’t very good down there, and I could hear him right behind me. I had to make sure I didn’t miss my marks too bad and slip up off the bottom for him to get underneath me.”

Krimes, who pressured Larson over the second half of the race after catching Wolfe for second on lap 14, settled for second, .34-seconds behind the winner. Third through fifth were outside front row starter Dale Blaney, Wolfe, and Starks. Sixth through tenth were 13th-starting Danny Dietrich, PA Speedweek points leader Freddie Rahmer (who came from 17th), Tim Glatfelter, Gerard McIntyre, Jr., and 19th-starting Cory Haas.

“It’s been a heck of-a-year for me. Every time I get on the track on Sundays I feel like I have a shot to win. This is five winged sprint car wins in a row. And especially a win here at Lincoln. This is a tough place. They kicked my butt here the couple times I’ve been here. I’m really excited to win for all you fans.”

“I wish we could go full-time racing, but Sundays kinda take up my time,” quipped Larson, “Someday we’ll do this again full time and I’m looking forward to it!”

Heats for the sprints were won by Starks, Wolfe, Brian Montieth (who spun out while running fifth on lap 17 of the feature and was scored 24th), Glatfelter, with Ryan Smith (subbing for Doug Esh in the Mark Coldren #07) winning the B-Main.

Fast time in time trials was set by TJ Stutts over the 42-car field with a one-lap time of 13.684-seconds (98.655 MPH).

Steve Wilbur started on the front row and led every lap for his first Lincoln “358”sprint car win. He became the 11th different winner in 12 races in the Pigeon Hills this year.

Ryan Higgins and C.J. Tracy ran second and third the entire way, with Jeff Halligan and Doug Hammaker completing the top five. Brie Hershey slowed to a stop on the backstretch while running fourth on lap 11.

Heats for the 31 358 Sprints were won by Trey Hivner, Kyle Abrahims, Wilbur, and Troy Wagaman, Jr., with Phil Walter winning the consolation.

Lincoln Speedway is back in action this Saturday, July 8, 2017, with a “K1 RaceGear Sprint Summer Series” event for the 358 sprint cars. Also on the schedule are the 600 Xcel Modifieds and All-American Outlaws. Gates will open at 5:30 PM, with racing scheduled to begin at 7:30 PM.

HOT LAPS: NAPA AUTO PARTS THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES PRESENTS PA SPRINT CAR SPEEDWEEK ACTION ON TUESDAY, JULY 4 AT GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY

BECHTELSVILLE, PA (July 4, 2017) – NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series brings the twenty-third running of Pennsylvania Sprint Car Speed week to Grandview Speedway on Tuesday, July 4.

To put some heat in your motors, here are the top stories heading into the Grandview Speedweek event.

THE ACTION -- The 35-lap, $5,000-to-win 410 Sprint Car event is the fifth of a ten-race stretch for competitors, while the 358 NASCAR Modified’s $3,000-to-win race allows Grandview’s premier weekly division to show off their action-enticing style.

Both divisions will participate in a full qualifying program. The 410s will time trial, to set up heat race line-ups, and then compete in a B-Main to line up the A-Main. Inversions will mix the line-ups throughout the night.

For the Modifieds, a blind draw will set the heat race line-ups, and a top-12 redraw will set the feature event, with the consolations filling in the remaining qualifying spots.

NEUTRAL GROUND – This Season, Pennsylvania Sprint Car Speedweek makes up the first of two 410 Sprint Car events at Grandview Speedway. Without weekly 410 competition, Grandview becomes a level playing field for all competitors – which means anything can happen on the one-third mile.

FROM DAYTONA TO DIRT – Race fans are buzzing with excitement for NASCAR Cup Series competitors Kyle Larson and Kasey Kahne. Both drivers competed Saturday night at Daytona International Speedway before heading out to start their Pennsylvania Speedweek.

Larson claimed Sunday’s win at Path Valley Speedway – his first in Central Pennsylvania. With two Cup Series victories, Larson currently leads the NASCAR Cup Series Championship Standings. Larson’s previous Grandview Speedway start resulted in a third-place finish in 2012.

In 2003, Kahne finished in 13th position at Grandview Speedway.

PERFECT 10 – Greg Hodnett has dominated at Grandview Speedway the past few years, claiming five of the past nine 410 Sprint Car main events. A win in Tuesday’s Speedweek event will mark Hodnett’s tenth Thunder on the Hill victory, leaving him tied for second place on the All-Time Sprint Car win list. Billy Pauch is the winningest Sprint Car driver with 11 victories.

ALL EYES ON DOUBLE D – Danny Dietrich’s 2015 win in the Inaugural Thunder Cup ended Greg Hodnett’s 5-Race win streak, Dietrich became the first driver since 2011 to beat Hodnett. Dietrich will be one to watch on Tuesday.

WALKER SPRINT CAR RANGER – Before Dietrich ended Hodnett’s win streak, it was California-native Tyler Walker who picked up two consecutive PA Speedweek wins in 2010 and 2011. Walker returns to the Bechtelsville oval for the first time in five years.

FAST FREDDIE REDUX – His last name is Rahmer, his first name is Freddie, but he doesn’t have 30 Speedweek wins -- He’s the 21-year-old son of the Sprint Car legend, and he picked up the opening night Speedweek win at Williams Grove Speedway. Dubbed ‘Faster Freddie’ by race fans, Rahmer leads the PA Speedweek Championship standings heading into Monday’s Lincoln Speedway event.

THUNDER FROM DOWN UNDER – When you think Pennsylvania Speedweek at Grandview your first thought isn’t James McFadden – but in his only Grandview Speedway start (2012) McFadden brought home an impressive second-place finish. Such a strong run on ‘The Hill’ makes you a threat for the $5,000 Speedweek win.

FAN INFORMATION – General Admission gates open at 5 PM on Tuesday, July 4. The Low Down and Dirty Radio Show Driver Meet and Greet will take place from 5-6 PM and feature the popular driver of The Warko Group No. 94, Ryan Smith. Warm-Ups will start at 6:45 PM, with 410 Sprint Car Time Trials at 7:30 PM.

General Admission tickets are $25 for Adults, $10 for Children (6-11), and Kids under 6 are always FREE! Pit Admission is $35, and no license is required.

Fans may camp out at the Speedway for the ultimate Speedweek experience. Campers are asked to park in the turn 4 parking area, there are no hook-ups available, and no box camping allowed. Track officials ask that all fires be contained. There is no fee for camping.

THUNDER ON THE HILL FAN FUN – Fans are encouraged to sign-up for the Inside-Out Program, a free fan experience that allows you to watch 410 Sprint Car and Modified Warm-Ups from the infield of Grandview Speedway.

Along with Inside-Out fans are encouraged to sign-up for free tours of the jam-packed pit area. Sign Ups are available inside the main gate with the Thunder Girls.

JOE THE PIZZA DUDE – Joe ‘The Pizza Dude’ will offer up delicious (and Free!) pizzas to the rowdiest of race fans. Keep an eye out after the National Anthem, when Kressley Auto and Truck Center, along with Harry’s U-Pull-It and Northern Valley Erectors present Joe ‘The Pizza Dude’.

PRS 2017 ? 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

Port Royal Has Two Big PA Speedweek Shows This Week

Moon Shine Camo Rt. 35 Late Model Challenge Series Returns Saturday

7/2/17

Port Royal ? Port Royal Speedway hosts a pair of Pennsylvania Speedweek races for the Weikert?s Livestock 410 sprint cars coming up this week, on Thursday, July 6 and on Saturday, July 8.

Celebrating its 27th year with the running of the 2017 series, PA Speedweek has become a can?t miss series of races and the events slated for Port Royal are sure to fit that bill.

Racing both nights begins at 7 pm.

Thursday?s show features the Speedweek sprint cars in a 30-lap main paying $7,000 to win.

The Gray?s Auto and Towing econo late models are also on the Thursday card, competing in the Dave Kepner Tribute paying $1,200 to win.

Kepner was the 1978 and 1979 Port Royal Hobby Stock track champion, recording 29 feature wins in the division.

Kepner fielded stock cars for decades at the track for not only himself but for his son Corey and was a former member of the Juniata County Agricultural Society Board of Directors.

Saturday?s racing action features not only the Speedweek sprint cars but also the River Valley Builders Super Late Models in another Moon Shine Camo Rt. 35 Challenge Series event.

While the Speedweek sprints race in another 30-lap main, this time paying $5,000 to win, the Moon Shine Camo Challenge Series late models will compete in a 25-lap feature paying $2,000 to the winner.

After two events having been completed in the 2017 Moon Shine Camo Series, one each at Port Royal and Selinsgrove Speedway, Coleby Frye currently leads Chad Hollenbeck in Moon Shine Series points with Jeff Rine holding down the third spot.

Adult general admission for the Saturday show is $22 with students ages 12 ? 18 admitted for $10.

Thursday admission is set at $20 for adults and $10 for students.

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

Prestigious event is biggest race of sprint car speedweek series, 358 late models also race

7/2/17

Mechanicsburg –Williams Grove Speedway will host the largest event of the 27th annual Pennsylvania Speedweek series this Friday, July 7 at 8 pm when it hosts the 29th annual Mitch Smith Memorial for sprint cars, paying a lucrative $10,000 to win out of a purse worth nearly $35,000.

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 2017 speedweek series is sponsored by Always Racing Ministries, 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 along with racing action for 358 limited late models.

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.

Danny Dietrich is the defending Smith Memorial champion after taking his second career checkers in the race last season.

Friday’s event will again be part of the 2017 Hoosier Diamond Series at the oval.

The Williams Grove portion of the 50/50 on the night will be donated to Always Racing Ministries.

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!

July 14 offers a World of Outlaws tune-up event for the 410 sprints along with the 358 sprint cars in action.

The K1 RaceGear Summer Series event for 358 sprints that was rained out on June 23 has been rescheduled for the July 14 racing program.

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.

Dover’s JR Rodriguez took the lead from Cameron Benyou on lap six and drove to his first win of the year in the 25-lap Bernheisel Race Cars 358 Late Model feature.

Rodriguez pulled away from the field about his Superior Homes No. 97 to become the sixth different late model winner this season. He took the win over Sean Merkel, Benyou, Sam Rial and last week’s winner Matt Murphy.

Rounding out the top ten were Ben Whitaker, DJ Groft, John Moser, Terry Gingerich and Justin Ehrhart.

Heats for the 13 car field went to Benyou and Rodriguez.

Time trials, qualifying, and an inversion of “6” for the feature placed Dietrich alongside Freddie Rahmer on the outside of of row two for the start.

Outside front row starter Trey Starks led the first ten laps before polesitter Rico Abreu took over on lap 11. Dietrich charged by both Starks and Abreu for the lead on lap 12. Though he led the rest of the way in the non-stop 30 lap feature, he had to deal with a closing Lance Dewease over the final eight laps. Dewease, who started sixth, moved into second with eight laps to go, and actually pulled inside Dietrich in heavy lapped traffic on turns three and four of lap 24. But Dietrich shut the door exiting the turn and pulled away to a .75-second victory at the end, his second win in a row, sixth Lincoln win of the year, and 37th of his career in the Pigeon Hills.

“That was pretty good show,” said Dietrich in victory lane after completing the 30-lap event in eight minutes, 10.303 seconds, “I wasn’t really good there at the end. I thought Lance was definitely going to catch me. I think I saw him one time. I started to play defense. I don’t like playing defense, but I’m glad to be standing here.”

“Hats off to this crew back here…Tony, Jake, Jordan, and Tyler…they bust their butts all week long,” continued Dietrich, “I wasn’t in the shop much with other things going on, and it feels good to be standing here again. I’m not sure I had a fast car at the end. We have to get working on the end of the race a little bit.”

Dewease settled for second, with Abreu, James McFadden, and Speedweek point leader Freddie Rahmer rounding out the top five. Sixth through tenth were 11th-starting Alan Krimes, 13th-starting Brandon Rahmer, Lucas Wolfe, Matt Campbell, and Starks.

Heats for the sprints were won by Dewease, Starks, Abreu, and Greg Hodnett, with Chad Trout winning the B-Main. Fast time in time trials was set by Dewease over the 42-car field with a one-lap time of 13.468-seconds (100.238 MPH).

Mason Chaney held off Lucas Montgomery by a half car-length to score his second career Lincoln win in the 20-lap Central PA Legends feature. Chaney started third and grabbed the lead from polesitter and race-long leader Chris Transeau on lap three. He led the rest of the way despite heavy late-race pressure from Montgomery, crossing .19 seconds ahead of Montgomery at the finish.

Third through fifth were Hayden Pascoe, Transeau, and Travis Perry.

Heats for the 31 Central PA Legends were won by Transeau, Perry, and Chaney, with Scott Haudeshell winning the consolation.

Lincoln Speedway is back in action this Monday night, July 3rd, with night 4 of the scheduled Speedweek series. Night 4 of the series will have the 410 sprinters going after the $5,000 winner’s check. The 358 Sprinters will round out the evening’s action. Gates will open at 5:30 PM, with time trials scheduled to begin at 7:30 PM.

THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES

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

RYAN SMITH RACES FOR THUNDER SERIES PA SPEEDWEEK REDEMPTION, TUESDAY, JULY 4 AT GRANDVIEW

BECHTELSVILLE, PA (July 1, 2017) – There are no handouts in Sprint Car Racing, everything is earned and even more so fought for, especially on “The Hill” of Grandview Speedway where anything can happen.

But, if one driver is owed anything from the one-third-mile Grandview Speedway high banks, that driver is Kunkletown, PA’s Ryan Smith.

Smith gets his opportunity for redemption this Tuesday, July 4 when NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series brings the 410 Sprint Cars and 358 Modifieds to Grandview Speedway as part of the 27th Annual Pennsylvania Sprint Car Speedweek event presented by Pioneer Pole Buildings.

After three seasons of consistent top-10 finishes, Smith found himself charging to the lead of the 2016 Pennsylvania Sprint Car Speedweek race at the Bechtelsville oval. Gaining a solid lead over 9-time Grandview winner, Greg Hodnett – Smith wove in and out of lapped traffic presumably on his way to his first Thunder on the Hill victory. But it was contact with a lapped car that sent Smith spinning to the infield.

“I’ve never been aggressive enough,” Smith said recounting the incident. “It’s just one of those racing deals -- obviously with it behind me there are things I would’ve done differently.”

Smith rebounded at the Grandview’s July ‘Thunder Cup’ event. It was déjà vu with Smith leading a pack of the strongest Sprint Car drivers in the nation – hitting lapped traffic by the fourth circuit and holding the lead, despite heavy competition. The red flag flew and cars came to a stop – under red, a radiator hose split on the Warko No. 94 draining all of the water out of the powerful 410 cubic inch engine and ending his night.

“The radiator hose was another bad deal. We know we can be fast at Grandview. We just really need to put it all together. This year, we’re coming out of the box fast.”

Smith comes to Grandview with The Warko Group No. 94, the same machine that led both of those previous Thunder on the Hill races and is hoping to really entertain his hometown crowd.

“Running these 410 Sprint Cars, Grandview is one of the closest places we race,” Smith says. “Grandview is 20 minutes from where I live now, so I’m excited because all of my friends and family are going to be there on Tuesday.”

Smith is easily a favorite heading into Tuesday’s 35-Lap, $5,000 to win event, but the field is filled with potentially the most challenging combination of drivers ever. Previous Grandview winners like Greg Hodnett, Danny Dietrich, and Tyler Walker all know the fast way around the Berks County dirt track and top-notch invading drivers like Kyle Larson, Kasey Kahne, and Rico Abreu are searching for their first Grandview win.

Smith is no slouch though, sitting second in Tony Stewart’s Arctic Cat All-Star Circuit of Champions Point Standings – and hungry for his first 410 Sprint Car win of the 2017 season.

The NASCAR 358 Modifieds will join the action competing in a 30-lap, $3,000 to win main event. Modified competitors from all over the region are anticipated for competition. Modified hot shoes like Jeff Strunk, Craig VonDohren, Duane Howard, Billy Pauch Jr., Doug Manmiller, Rick Laubach, Ryan Godown, and Anthony Perrego are pre-entered for this Independence Day event.

Time Trials for the 410 Sprint Cars will open the show on Tuesday, July 4 at 7:30 PM. The pit gates will open at 2:30 PM and the Grandstands will open at 5:00 PM. Fans can up-close to the drivers and their mighty machines with the Low Down and Dirty Meet and Greet kicking off at 5:00 PM.

General Admission Adult tickets are $25, Children ages 6-11 are $10, and Under 6 is Free of charge! Pit admission is $35, and no license is required.

Advanced tickets may be reserved by calling 443-513-4456. Please provide your name, phone number and the number of tickets you will need. Tickets may be paid for and picked up on race night at the Will Call Window after 4 PM. Advanced ticket holders may enter the grandstands at 4:30 PM.

Plan to see Joe the Pizza Dude make his special appearance at Thunder on the Hill Tuesday, July 4. The Pizza Dude is being sponsored by Kressley Auto and Truck Sales and Harry’s U-Pull It and Northern Valley Erectors.

Fans may camp out at the Speedway for the ultimate Speedweek experience. Campers are asked to park in the turn 4 parking area, there are no hook-ups available, and no box camping allowed. Track officials ask that all fires be contained. There is no fee for camping.

NAPA Auto Parts continues their long run with the Thunder on the Hill Racing Series as the title sponsor joined by Pioneer Pole Buildings, Levan Machine and Truck Equipment, and GALCO Business Communications.

FROM WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY

JUNE 30, 2017
FREDDIE RAHMER OPENS PENNSYLVANIA SPRINT CAR SPEEDWEEK WITH WILLIAMS GROVE VICTORY
MECHANICSBURG, PA – Freddie Rahmer grabbed the lead from TJ Stutts on lap 14 and went on to win the Pennsylvania Sprint Car Speedweek opener Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway. 
Rahmer, 21, of Salfordville, earned $5,000 for his third Grove win of the season. It was his first career Speedweek win. His dad has the most Speedweek wins with 30.  He also extended his point lead as he’s finished in the top three in eight of 10 races run. 
“The track threw me off all night long,” said Rahmer. “There was a big, chunky curb all night. I didn’t do a good job until the feature. They ran the track in and the bottom came in a little bit. We were pretty good.”
Lance Dewease was scheduled to start second, but pitted as the field was lining up. T.J Stutts started on the pole and took the lead. Rahmer moved up to the fourth starting spot and took second from fast timer Trey Starks. Lucas Wolfe and Starks traded sliders in the first and second turns as Stutts continued to lead. 
The red flag flew with four laps completed for a hard backstretch crash by Matt Campbell.
Rahmer went after the lead on the restart and the racing was very close in the second corner with Stutts maintaining the top spot. More close racing on the frontstretch as James McFadden got by Wolfe for fourth. 
The caution flew with six laps completed when Cory Haas stopped in turn four. McFadden and Wolfe went after each other again on the restart. 
Rahmer stayed with Stutts for a few laps, but then began to lose some ground.
By lap 11, Rahmer began to close again. He drove under Stutts in turn three and slid in front of him completing lap 14 as the race leader. 
“I knew I had to bide my time for our racecar,” said Rahmer. “TJ was exceptional at the beginning, but he got a little loose. I couldn’t keep up with him early.”
As Rahmer secured the lead, McFadden and Wolfe passed Starks. . 
Rahmer’s lead was 2.4 seconds with five laps to go. 
A slowing sprinter on the frontstretch brought the field under caution with two laps remaining. 
Rahmer controlled the restart as Wolfe once again tried to take third from McFadden, but couldn’t safely get by.
Rahmer scored his third Grove win of the season by 0.986 and extended his point lead. 
“It’s my mom’s birthday on July 1st so this one’s for her,” said Rahmer. “I’m happy with where we’re at so far and I think we can keep digging here.”
Stutts, McFadden, Wolfe and Brian Montieth completed the top five. Starks, Dale Blaney, Greg Hodnett, Aaron Ott and Danny Dietrich rounded out the top 10. 
Starks set fast time over the 31-car field with a lap of 16.708. Wolfe, Dewease, Stutts and Zearfoss followed Starks in qualifying time trials. 
Stutts, Zearfoss and Freddie Rahmer won the eight-lap heat races. Jordan Givler won the consolation. 
Speedweek continues Saturday night at Lincoln Speedway. 
In the 358 Sprint feature, Troy Wagaman Jr. grabbed the lead at the start and led all 20 laps to score the win. 
The first caution flag flew on lap five. Phil Walter took the runner-up spot on the restart, but couldn’t close on the leader. Adrian Shaffer and Kevin Nouse also moved up.
The caution flew again on lap 13 and Wagaman controlled the restart. Shaffer and Nouse passed Walter to move up a spot.
Shaffer couldn’t catch Wagaman as he continued to blast the cushion and scored the win. Shaffer, Nouse, Walter, and Brie Hershey completed the top five. Chad Trout, DJ DeHaven, Chris Frank, Jared Esh and Brett Wanner rounded out the top 10. 
Hershey, Matt Findley and Franks won the heat races.

BITTINGER CLAIMS FIRST WIN OF THE YEAR IN TRAIL-WAY “358” SPRINTS

HANOVER, PA (6/30/2017) – Mike Bittinger started on the pole and led every lap en route to his first win of the year in the 25-lap “358” sprint car feature at Trail-Way Speedway Friday night.

It was quite the turnaround for the Abbottstown driver, who has been experiencing mechanical woes over the past few weeks. He told one track official earlier in the evening that he changed everything but the tail tank over the past few weeks, so this week he changed that too.

“I’m glad to be back out,” said Bittinger upon exiting his Apple Automotive/Boulder Pools/Three Hogs Barbecue/Big Mike’s Crabhouse #12 in victory lane, “I saw the 35 car (Steve Owings) back up to third, but I thought I’d be okay without cautions.”

“(David) Holbrook showed me his nose on the restart, and I moved around a little bit and found something down low,” continued Bittinger after his 16th career Trail-Way win.

Holbrook started second and finished there, with Owings coming from the back after dropping into the pits and returning to the track during an opening lap caution. Isaac Sneeringer and Joe Trone, Jr. completed the top five.

Qualifiers for the 12 sprint cars were won by Bittinger and Holbrook.

Jesse Snyder raced to his first win of the year and sixth of his Trail-Way career in the 20-lap 600cc micro-sprint feature. He started on the outside of the front row and led every lap, with Garrett Bard, hard charger Bradley Weber (who started 11th), Christian Reed and Zane Rudisill rounding out the top five.

Heats for the 17 micros were won by Jim Young and Weber.

Chris Transeau took the checkered flag in a wild 20-lap Central PA Legends feature that saw two leaders crash out during the event. Polesitter Greg Burd took the lead from the outset and paced the field the first 13 laps. Following a 14th-lap restart, Burd and third-place Hayden Pascoe made contact in turn four, with both cars ending up in the infield and Burd taken to the pits. Mason Chaney, who was running second at the time, assumed the lead for the restart, but he spun following contact with Travis McClelland. Transeau became the third leader of the event, and raced to his second win of the year. Chris Mc Kinney, Tim O Sheehan, Jason Gastley, and Rick Hartwig crossed second through fifth.

Heats for the 18 Legends were won by Scott Houdeshell and Transeau. Brian Walls came back from early-race spin to win his second race of the year in the 20-lap street stock feature. Walls, who brought out the caution with a spin in turns three and four of lap two, slid under race-long leader Michael Goodwin on the fourth turn of lap 11 to take the lead and score his eighth career Trail-Way win. Goodwin settled for second, with hard charger Jeremy Stremmel (who started ninth), Dalton Myers, and Zach Myers finishing third through fifth.

The lone qualifier for the nine street stocks was won by Goodwin.

Coming close to their first Grandview win are Mechanicsburg, PA’s Lucas Wolfe; Kunkletown, PA’s Ryan Smith; Salfordville, PA’s Freddie Rahmer; and Denver, PA’s Alan Krimes.

Aboard his American Legion Department of Pennsylvania No. 32, the Harrisburg, PA racer powered from his fourth starting spot into the lead on the first lap and never looked back in becoming the sixth different winner in seven events this season.

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY

 24 June 2017 By Michael Batz

FRANEK STORMS FROM 12th STARTING POSITION TO WIN THIRD 360 SPRINT RACE; ADAMS, HOFFMAN & JOHNSON ALL SCORE FIRST STOCK CAR WINS OF SEASON

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – The 360 Sprint cars had one week left to prepare before the big Firecracker 30 race at Selinsgrove Speedway coming up on July 1. Davie Franek of Wantage, N.J., proved he is more than ready. Franek charged from his 12th starting spot to pass race leader Eric Tomecek on lap 19 and go onto his third win of the season in the 25-lap 360 Sprint Car main event.

Tomecek passed race-long leader Ryan Kissinger on lap 11 after a restart. Once out front Tomecek led until a lap 15 caution flag which gave Franek the opportunity to be on the race leader’s rear bumper for the restart. Ryan Kissinger continued to struggle as Jason Shultz went past while in a battle with Justin Whittall. Whittall also completed the pass and then Derek Locke went by to fifth from his 14th starting spot.

As Franek crossed the line he was chased by Tomecek, Shultz, Whittall, and Locke. Franek mentioned in victory lane that the yellow flags fell his way during the event allowing him to come from his 12th starting spot. He also said he was better in traffic than he was once he was out front which also helped his cause.

Kissinger, Nate Snyder, Larry Kelleher, Colby Womer, and Nyle Berkes completed the top ten finishers. Justin Whittall, Eric Tomecek, and Jim Shuster won the heat races for the 360 Sprinters.

Tony Adams was the fastest car for much of the night in the Jeff’s Auto Body and Recycling Late Models. Adams started sixth and picked his way to the front to take the race lead away from Dave Zona on lap 11.

Once out front Adams looked to be a lock for his first win in five years at the speedway. A yellow flag on lap 21 changed everything. The yellow flag put Steve Campbell on his tail for the restart. Adams, who was concerned his tire might have gone away under the yellow flag was able to fend off the challenge of Campbell and pulled away to his first win since 2012.

Campbell came home second followed by Tim Wilson, Donnie Schick, and Hayes Mattern. Kenny Trevitz came across the line in sixth ahead of Nathan Long, Dave Stamm, Dave Zona, and Luke Hoffner. Wilson and Adams won heat races for the Super Late Models on Kids’ Night at the speedway.

The A&A Auto Store Pro Stock feature race had point imprecations the whole way through it. AJ Hoffman was in search of his first win of the season after winning five times a year ago. Hoffman is not in the top of the point battle so his main focus was a trip to victory lane.

On the other hand Shaun Lawton charged to the front of the field Saturday night hoping to better his point race counterpart Tommy Slanker. Slanker, the point leader, was caught up in an accident on lap five.

>From that point on Lawton did all he could to work to the front and take a victory. Hoffman had other ideas while in a battle with Lawton, Kyle Bachman, and AJ Stroup. Hoffman and Lawton were left to settle the race for the win on the final lap.

Lawton led lap 14 of the 15 lap race. Hoffman came back and took the race lead back as the duo raced down the back stretch for the final time. In turns three and four Hoffman inched ahead and held on by just inches for the win over Lawton. Bachman, Stroup, and Dustin Snook competed the top five finishers.

Slanker recovered to run sixth, Jake Buck, Noah Jenson, John Fowler, and John Schreffler joined him in the top ten. Hoffman and Lawton were the heat race winners for the Pro Stocks.

The Roadrunners raced for the $400 payday on Saturday night. Daren Rice lead the way early in a tight battle with Keith Bissinger and Will Brunson. Bissinger lost his left front tire and that took him out of contention. On the restart, Brian Johnson made an attempt to slide in front of the leaders going into turn one and two after charging into the battle for the lead from his 15th starting spot.

Johnson made contact with Rice and Brunson took the lead. A yellow flag disregarded the pass for the lead. Rice held the lead until lap ten when Johnson made the winning pass. Johnson crossed the checkered flag ahead of Rice, Tom Brunson, Ken Schreffler, and Tom Underwood. Ricky Buss, Butch Shaffer, Will Bruson, Brandon Shultz, and Brian Mabus.

Smith Cope and Keith Bissinger won heat races for the Roadrunners.

Saturday July 1st is the Firecracker 30 at Selinsgrove Speedway. The prelude to the night’s racing will be the annual Selinsgrove Ford Market Street Race Car Parade at 4 p.m. The 360 Sprint cars will compete to be the winner of the 15th running of the Firecracker 30 paying $3,000 to win plus the Late Models, Pro Stocks, and Roadrunners.

Thanks to Todd Benner of Selinsgrove Ford there will be added purse money in each class. The winner of the Late Models will receive a $2,000. The Pro Stock ($650) and the Roadrunner ($450) winners will also receive extra money as well as the top three finishers in each class.

Saturday night was Kids’ Night at the speedway. A big thank you to all the fans that came out to take part in the events and also to the drivers and business’s that donated items for the kids.

Wolfe Comes Back From Rollover And 16th Starting Spot For Impressive Port Royal Sprints Victory

Jim Yoder scores super lates, Darren Miller in 305s and Powell in xtremes

6/24/17

Port Royal – Lucas Wolfe of Mechanicsburg came back from an opening lap rollover and a restart position of 16th to blast to his third 410 sprint car victory of the season at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night, taking $3,200 for the win.

In the 22-lap super late model main, Jim Yoder took the win aboard a car normally run by his son Dylan Yoder.

In the 305 sprint main Darren Miller was the winner and Bill Powell scored the xtreme stock feature to close out the night.

The opening lap of the 25-lap 410 sprint car main was marred by a third turn 11-car melee that saw Wolfe turn over to begin the incident that ended up collecting 10 more machines with some cars flipping through the corner.

The incident began when second starter Curt Stroup suddenly lost power as he traversed the backchute, sending the rest of the field scrambling to avoid him.

Wolfe turned into the first victim but others involved included TJ Stutts, Jordan Givler, Ryan Taylor, Davey Sammons, Kody Lehman, AJ Flick, Dale Blaney, Cale Grubb and Blane Heimbach.

After the lengthy red flag period for clean up, all but four cars were able to rejoin with Wolfe restarting 16th in the field.

Once the race got going, new second starter Steve Buckwalter took the lead aboard the Wilson No. 38 with new fourth starter Dylan Cisney blasting into second on the second tour.

Buckwalter was fleet at the front and Cisney was having trouble closing any distance but when Buckwalter suddenly lost power on the 10th lap, just after entering the backmarkers, Cisney inherited control with Greg Hodnett now in second.

Hodnett would jab at the lead with Cisney reclaiming the spot thanks to impressive rallies in turn two.

Using the top groove, the leaders displayed fantastic bursts of speed as they hit the mid-point of the second turn and that sent them careening onto the straightaway with the power to dart by traffic and each other with ease.

Chasing the front pair at the halfway point was Brock Zeafoss and Lance Dewease as the front four all kept a torrid and hectic pace around the oval, jetting off of the second turn.

Dewease struck next on the 14th lap when he made a two-car low side pass to blast by Zearfoss and Hodnett to go from fourth to second.

And shortly after the lap was scored, Joey Hershey slowed to a stop on the backchute, setting up a restart with Wolfe up to fifth.

Dewease bolted low and into the lead in the first corner when action resumed with Cisney dropping off of the cushion as the pair ran onto the backstretch to pull back inside Dewease for control.

Cisney beat Dewease into the third corner to reclaim the lead but suddenly Wolfe was on the scene.

Using a lightning-fast burst of speed off of the second turn cushion to annihilate Zearfoss, Hodnett and Dewease in the blink of an eye, Wolfe crossed the line as the pacesetter with nine laps to go.

And that was the end of the story as Wolfe blistered the speedway to the finish line to record the win going away with a 2.819 second advantage over point leader Cisney.

Dewease was third followed by Hodnett and Zearfoss.

Sixth through 10th went to Mike Wagner, James McFadden, Blane Heimbach, AJ Flick and Carl Bowser.

Heats went to Heimbach, Wolfe and Blaney with Jordan Givler taking the consolation race.

Polesitter Jason Schmidt led the first lap of the super late model main before Jim Yoder got the lead, crossing the line on lap two with a .015 second advantage.

But Yoder would steadily extend that lead over the ensuing laps as seventh starter Coleby Frye raced in to second on the ninth tour.

Frye tried to close in for the win to no avail but then his race ended with two laps go to when he slowed to a stop.

Schmidt failed to challenge on the restart, settling for second by 1.003 seconds, followed by Andy Haus, Nick Dickson and Trent Brenneman.

Sixth through 10th went to Dave Brouse Jr., Mike Lupfer, Dylan Yoder, Chris Casner and Tim Smith Jr.

Heats went to Frye and Smith Jr.

Darren Miller wired the field in the 18-lap 305 sprint main for the first win of his career at Port Royal Speedway.

Jeff Miller raced into second early from the sixth starting spot and kept leader Darren Miller honest for the entire distance.

Only on the final lap however as the pair headed to the checkered flag and Darren Miller got bottled up by traffic was Jeff Miller able to challenge for the victory.

Tyler Reeser rode home third followed by Cale Reigle and Ken Duke Jr.

Heats went to Kyle Ganoe, Duke Jr. and Drew Ritchey with the consolation race going to Tyler Denochik.

Josh Bender led the first two circuits of the xtreme stock main before Kevin Imes took over.

But Imes fell victim to one-time winner Bill Powell on the fifth tour.

Powell was chased to the finish by two-time winner Herm Renninger, who took over second on the seventh loop.

Ryan Zook, Walt Peters and Pete Leister completed the top five.

DIETRICHS FINISH ONE, TWO IN LINCOLN 410 SPRINT CAR THRILLER
Lincoln Speedway·Saturday, June 24, 2017

Saturday, June 24, 2017
LINCOLN SPEEDWAY
Abbottstown, PA
PEPSI NIGHT
UPCOMING SCHEDULE:
Saturday, July 1, 2017 (Time Trials @ 7:30 PM) - PA SPEEDWEEK Show [18th Annual Kevin Gobrecht Memorial] for 410 sprints ($7,000 to win) plus Central PA Legends

DIETRICHS FINISH ONE, TWO IN LINCOLN 410 SPRINT CAR THRILLER;
Arnold first repeat winner in “358” sprints; Cullum two-for-two in All American Outlaws
ABBOTTSTOWN, PA – June 24, 2017 – It was a big night for the Dietrich family in a thriller Saturday at Lincoln Speedway.
In the end, Danny Dietrich claimed his fifth win of the year over brother Billy and Freddie Rahmer in a three-car battle that went down to the finish.
“That was freakin’ awesome! That’s some good racing there, ain’t it?,” said Dietrich after scoring his 36th career Lincoln win, “I used the wall to not run into somebody else, so we’re glad to be standing here.”
The winner started ninth, with brother Billy starting fourth, and Freddie Rahmer starting sixth. Polesitter Tim Glatfelter grabbed the lead at the drop of the green was immediately challenged by Billy.
The red flag came out on lap five when points leader Brian Montieth spun in turns three and four, collecting Jim Siegel and Matt Campbell, who rolled onto his side. Those three were battling for seventh place at the time. That was the only break in the 25-lap event, with Billy Dietrich claiming the lead from Glatfelter on the restart.
Freddie Rahmer got by Glatfelter for second on lap eight, and Danny Dietrich moved past Glatfelter to enter the top three on lap ten. That set up a 15-lap battle for the lead through lapped traffic which saw Rahmer and Danny swap second several times. Danny officially took over the runner-up spot on lap 15, with Rahmer reclaiming second on lap 17. Danny reclaimed second on 19, and began to pressure brother Billy.
He drove around Billy with a slider on lap 22, and led the rest of the way, finishing 1.47 seconds ahead of Billy, with Freddie crossing a close third.
“I drove harder than everybody else,” said Dietrich, “My brother ran hard, too. It looked like he just went away at the end. He was so good early and took the lead from Freddie. We just caught up the last five laps. The car got free and we could run the top. I was running the bottom early on, and thought I was pretty good around there. I was hoping it was still there at the end, and it was. Once I got the lead, I moved back to the bottom and was hoping that no one could take the long way around me.”
11th-starting Kyle Moody finished fourth, and Cory Haas completed a spectacular run to come from 22nd starting spot to finish fifth. Sixth through tenth were Glatfelter, Campbell (returning from the early-race crash), Gerard McIntyre, Jr., Tyler Ross, and Chad Trout.
Heats for the 23 “410” Sprints were won by Campbell, Montieth, and Glatfelter.
Dillsburg’s Chris Arnold came from 12th starting spot to score his second win in a row and become the first repeat winner in 11 feature events in the 20-lap “358” sprint car feature.
Arnold was already up to fifth by the end of the fourth lap, got around both Todd Gracey and Brie Hershey to move into third on lap eight, caught Matt Findley for second on lap 11, and then took the lead from polesitter and race-long leader Jake Eldreth on lap 12. Brie Hershey and Findley got together while battling for third on lap 15, but Eldreth couldn’t catch Arnold over the final six laps, crossing one full second behind for the runner-up spot.
In a late-race charge, Chase Dietz (driving the Roger McKeehan #4R) advanced to third at the finish, with C.J. Tracy and Ashley Cappetta crossing fourth and fifth.
Heats for the 30 “358” Sprints were won by Findley, Tracy, and Gracey, with Troy Wagaman, Jr. winning the consolation.
Justin Cullum came from ninth starting spot to win the 20-lap All American Outlaw feature event. He advanced quickly through the field and caught race-long leader Jim Minter for the lead on lap nine. He crossed 1.03 seconds ahead of eventual runner-up Jeff McCauley, with Randy Doty, John Holmes, and Joe Davis rounding out the top five.
Minter pulled up lame late in the race, ending his night.
Heats for the 11 All American Outlaws were won by Cullum and Minter.

OWINGS CLAIMS THIRD WIN OF THE YEAR IN TRAIL-WAY 358 SPRINTS;
Weber wins 600cc micros; Rain forces postponement of 270cc micros, vintage cars, & limited stocks

HANOVER, PA (6/23/2017) – Steve Owings padded his points win by claiming his third win of the year in the 25-lap “358” sprint car feature at Trail-Way Speedway Friday night.

“We’ve got a fast car once we get going,” said Owings upon exiting the Westminster Transmission/Westminster Lawn/Valentine Motorsports #35 in victory lane, “But we’ve been stumbling on the starts. We weren’t fast on the initial start. But that red flag on the first lap gave us a second chance.”

An inversion draw put Owings on the pole for the start. Owings appeared to have trouble getting up to speed on the starts and lone restart once the race got underway. Owings followed outside front row starter David Holbrook on the first lap, but a Chris Priar flip in turns three and four forced a complete restart.

Owings was able to hold off Holbrook on the second attempt to start the race and was scored the leader of every lap, despite stumbling again on the lone restart after that (a lap 17 caution for an Isaac Sneeringer spin on turn two).

His final margin of victory over Holbrook was 2.03 seconds, with Dwight Leppo, Cody Fletcher, and Joe Trone, Jr. completing the top five.

“I don’t know why we don’t get more cars,” said Owings of the thin field of nine, “We’ve been tearing some cars up in the heats, and maybe that’s why guys don’t come. It’s a lot of fun here.”

The lone qualifier for 358’s was won by Sneeringer, who was credited with a sixth-place finish after spinning again on the final lap of the feature.

Brad Weber scored the win in the 20-lap 600cc micro-sprint feature after starting on the pole and leading every lap. It was Weber’s first win of the year and the 10th of his Trail-Way career, moving him into a three-way tie with Dwayne Gutshall and Tyler Walton on the all-time TW win list. His final margin of victory over Steven Bull was 3.22 seconds.

Darren Kauffman, Zane Rudisill, and Hannah Riser rounded out the top five.

Heats for the 13 600cc micros were won by Weber and Kauffman.

Predicted rains arrived during the Mason Dixon 270cc micro-sprint feature, forcing postponement of the remainder of the event, which will be completed on Friday, July 21st.

Also postponed by rain were the limited stock and vintage car features. The limited stock feature will be made up next Saturday, July 1st, and the make-up date for the Les Coghill Memorial for vintage cars is still to be determined.

Next Friday, June 30, 2017, Trail-Way Speedway will be back in action with the 358 Sprints, 600 Micro Sprints, Central PA Legends and Street Stocks. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. and racing begins at 7:45 p.m.

The following day, Saturday, July 1, Trail-Way hosts the “Kings of Crash” Junk Car Demolition. Also in action will be the Limited Stocks, Figure 8 and Ladies Powder Puff. Gates open at 4:00 p.m. with heats scheduled to begin at 6:00 p.m.

SNYDER WINS WHITCOMB SPRINT CAR THRILLER BY HALF CAR-LENGTH;

RINE SMASHES LATE MODEL TRACK RECORD FOR 105th CAREER WIN; SLANKER’S FOURTH PRO STOCK WIN STRENGTHEN POINTS LEAD; BRUNSON WINS FIRST CAREER ROADRUNNER RACE

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Selinsgrove Speedway capped off a big two-race weekend Saturday night in thrilling and record-breaking fashion with a strong field of race cars and another super racing surface.

The Patriot Sprint Tour invaded as part of the 14th Annual Joe Whitcomb Memorial for 360 sprint cars to honor the memory of the late Millersburg driver who lost his life in a racing accident at the track in 2003.

Nate Snyder led early in the 25-lap Sprint Car event showing the way over defending Patriot Sprint Tour champion Jarrid Zimbardi. Cody Keller quickly broke into the top three in the early laps.

The caution flag flew on lap 11 for a slowing Jordan Thomas and interrupted a great battle for second between Zimbardi and Keller.

On the restart Jason Shultz threw a slider on Keller to take over the third spot and soon worked his way by Zimbardi into second. Shultz began to close in on the race leader after securing second. Soon Chad Layton and Davie Franek charged to third and fourth.

Over the next few laps the top four closed up and with three to go Snyder led Shultz, Layton, and Franek in a tight high speed chase with no lap cars between them.

Shultz pulled the last corner slide job on Snyder and looked like he might have stolen the victory away. Snyder turned down the speedway and crossed Shultz over coming to the line for the win. Snyder's victory was by just .052, or half of a car-length, over Shultz. Franek ended up third followed by Layton and Makr Smith.

Jared Zimbardi, Robbie Stillwagon, Derek Locke, Larry Kelleher, and Eric Tomecek made up the top ten finishers.

360 Sprint Car heat race winners were Justin Whittall, Eric Tomecek, and Jason Shultz. George Suprick won the B-Main for the 29 car field.

The Fast Tees Fast Time award was taken by Mark Smith with a time of 17.577.

Tommy Slanker isn't the current A&A Auto Store Pro Stock point leader for nothing. Slanker drove from his eighth starting spot to make the pass of Dustin Snook for the race lead on lap 9. Snook, the race long leader, tried to come back and challenge Slanker but spun on lap 12 to bring out a caution flag.

John Fowler took over the second spot and gave Slanker headaches over the next two corners before AJ Stroup moved into the runner up spot. Stroup was out of time by the time he got to second as Slanker was crossing the line for his fourth win of the season.

Slanker dedicated the win to his dad and grandfathers on Father's Day weekend. His grandfather is the reason he runs the number 40. Stroup was second followed by Fower, Brandon Moser, and Lori Croop.

Heat races for the Pro Stocks went to Tommy Slanker and Dustin Snook.

Jeff Rine started in the eighth spot but wasted little time taking the race lead on lap eight from the race leader Tim Wilson.

Rine would pull away from the field and go on to win and set a new track record. Rine shattered the old record (9:02.203) by 17 seconds setting a new time of 8:45.459. Rine dedicated the win to the Eckert family and Rick Eckert who lost his dad Junior earlier in the day.

The battle everyone was watching on the track were for spots two through six. Tim Wilson spent the second half of the race trying to hold off a hard charging Dylan Yoder. Yoder caught Wilson on lap 17 and the two raced side by side for the next five laps before Yoder secured the spot pushing Wilson back to third.

Behind the battle for second was a tight race between Gene Knaub, Steve Campbell, and Hayes Mattern. Mattern held the spot before getting passed by Campbell. Once Campbell went to fourth Knaub followed him by. Knaub then made the pass of Campbell to take the fourth spot.

Rine, Yoder, Wilson, Knaub, and Campbell were the top five followed by Mattern, Dave Brouse Jr., Kenny Trevitz, Donnie Schick, and Jason Schmidt.

Late Model heat winners were Jeff Rine and Gene Knaub.

In a thrilling Roadrunner feature event Will Brunson passed Ryan Leister on the last lap to claim the checkered flag. Brandon Shultz finished third followed by Ryan Zook and Michael Smith.

Smith Cope, Butch Shaffer, Dennis Conrad, Bob Bussey, and Kevin Dobson finished out the top ten in the feature event.

Tom Underwood and Bob Bussey won Roadrunner heat races.

PRS 2017 – 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

Chris Windom Scores Port Royal USAC Eastern Storm, Blane Heimbach Gets Career Win No. 12

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

6/17/17

Port Royal – Chris Windom of Canton, Illinois, scored the 30-lap USAC sprint car main event at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night, spoiling the party for Robert Ballou after the California driver led nearly all 30 laps of the feature.

In the regular 25-lap 410 sprint car main, Blane Heimbach of Selinsgrove overtook Ryan Taylor with two laps to go to notch his 12th career victory at Port Royal.

A one-time winner in his career at Port Royal, Ballou started second in the Eastern Storm USAC feature for the wingless sprint cars and outpaced polesitter Chad Boespflug from the beginning.

Windom started third in the field and maintained that spot for the first five laps before Boespflug started slipping.

A caution flag for debris regrouped the field and wiped out a 2.1 second lead that Ballou had built over Windom and sixth starter Thomas Meseraull.

Ballou got away again when action resumed and had a 1.15 second lead at the halfway point that was extended to 2.813 by the time that a second caution flag unfurled with four laps to go.

And that was the break that Windom needed to get the lead.

When the green flag came back out, Windom pounced to Ballou’s inside as the pair raced into the first corner and with that Windom slid up to the cushion just in front of Ballou to begin his run at the front.

Windom was seemingly home free, headed for the checkers but the race for second and third really intensified during the final four laps and with Ballou trying to hang on to second, both he and Justin Grant collided.

The night’s fast timer, Grant and Ballou exchanged second twice before racing into the third turn on the final lap with Grant on defense having secured the spot.

Ballou however went for a big slide job as the pair entered the third turn only to find Grant blocking and that sent Ballou up to the fence and flipping, bringing out the red flag.

Ballou escaped uninjured and Grant kept going however Aaron Farney piled into the scene, sustaining damage.

Grant restarted second for the final lap and tried to challenge Windom but Windom kept to the low side to block Grant in each turn, preserving his first ever Port Royal victory, worth $6,000.

Grant rode home second, .371 seconds behind, followed by Brady Bacon, Tyler Courtney and Dave Darland.

Sixth through 10th went to Thomas Meseraull, Chase Stockon, Kevin Thomas Jr., Shane Golobic and Jerry Coons Jr.

Heats for the 28 USAC sprints went to Ballou, Meseraull and Golobic with Darland scoring the B Main.

Grant set fast time with a lap of 19.019 seconds.

Ryan Taylor started on the pole of the regular 25-lap 410-sprint car main with Blane Heimbach starting second.

The initial start was red-flagged when Joey Hershey turned over in the third turn, collecting Curt Stroup and TJ Stutts.

After the stoppage, the event went non-stop to the finish with leader Taylor entering the backmarkers with 15 laps to go.

Taylor kept nearly a straightaway between himself and pursuer Heimbach for most of the event but with less than 10 laps to go, Heimbach began chewing into the lead.

It was clear with five laps to go that Taylor was losing speed in the third and fourth turns while Heimbach was gaining with every tour.

It took until lap 23 for Heimbach to finally take advantage of a slipping Taylor when he was able to ride the inside lane underneath Taylor for the lead as the pair headed for the two-to-go sign.

Taylor came back for a brief moment in the first turn as Heimbach rolled the top and Taylor tried getting back by with an low side move.

But Heimbach dropped off of the cushion to again take control and run to the finish by .944 seconds, worth $3,200.

Taylor settled for second followed by Trey Starks, Dylan Cisney and Trenton Sheaffer.

Sixth through 10th went to Mike Wagner, Justin Barger, Brock Zearfoss, Steve Buckwalter and TJ Stutts.

Heats went to Stutts and Heimbach.

WOLFE MAKES LATE-RACE PASS TO WIN BAPS NIGHT FEATURE AT LINCOLN SPEEDWAY;

Chris Arnold becomes 10th different winner in 10 races in 358 sprints

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA – June 17, 2017 – Lucas Wolfe took advantage of one of his few opportunities in lapped traffic with just over a lap to go to score the $4,200 top prize in Saturday’s BAPS Night 410 sprint car feature at Lincoln Speedway.

Wolfe, who picked up the $1,000 bonus from BAPS with the win, set fast time on the night and started fourth. He quickly advanced to second at the start and chased polesitter and race-long leader Gerard McIntyre, Jr. the entire way, pulling onto McIntyre’s bumper for restart following the event’s only caution for a spinning Anthony Macri in turn two of lap 16.

By that time, Brian Montieth had come from his 14th starting spot to pass Danny Dietrich and move into fifth just before the caution.

Wolfe was unable to stay with McIntyre for the next several laps until the leaders hit lapped traffic with five laps to go.

“Gerard was very good…way better…especially off of two. I thought I might get some opportunities and was fortunate to get a good start and get by Freddie. I was never able to close seriously on McIntyre,” said Wolfe in victory lane, “He was able to navigate traffic pretty well. So after the restart, I thought I might have to try and find something that was a little different.”

“I was pretty good on the bottom down there off of two. I could never make anything work in three and four, and just kept trying. I was really overdriving trying to keep up with him,” said Wolfe, “Fortunately, once we got to traffic, it all played out correct for me. It slowed him up enough to give me a few shots at him, and was finally able to make one stick there at the end.”

Wolfe’s race-winning pass came in the midst of lapped traffic while exiting turn four with the white flag waving.

McIntyre tried his best to reclaim the lead in turns one of two of lap 25, but settled for second, with Brian Montieth making a late-race pass to get by Freddie Rahmer for third. Rahmer and Cory Haas completed the top five.

Sixth through tenth were Danny Dietrich, Chad Trout, Tim Glatfelter, Billy Dietrich, and Robbie Kendall.

Heats for the “410” Sprints were won by Kendall, Billy Dietrich, and Haas. Fast time in time trials over the 21-car 410 sprint field was set by Wolfe with a one-lap time of 13.624-seconds (99.090 MPH).

Dillsburg’s Chris Arnold became the tenth different winner in ten 2017 “358” sprint car events after starting eighth and taking the race lead from outside front row starter and race-long leader Mike Bittinger following a lap four restart.

Arnold picked up a $300 bonus from BAPS to round out his $1,300 win, the third of his career at Lincoln.

Points leader Adrian Shaffer continued his streak of top five finishes by crossing second. Third through fifth were 11th-starting Doug Hammaker, Cody Fletcher, and Bittinger. Sixth through tenth were polesitter Landon Myers, Todd Rittenhouse, Jr., Matt Findley, Brie Hershey, and Brent Shearer.

Heats for the 23 “358” Sprints were won by Chris Frank, Shaffer, and Fletcher.

Lincoln Speedway is back in action next Saturday night, June 24th, with PEPSI NIGHT featuring the 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints, and All-American Outlaws. Gates open at 5:30 PM, with racing action getting underway at 7:30 PM.

SELINSGROVE BEATS RAIN, WOLFE WIRES FIELD FOR TILLEY CLASSIC SPRINT VICTORY; ANDREW YODER REPEATS IN ECONO LATE MODELS

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Selinsgrove Speedway fended off the rain while Lucas Wolfe of Mechanicsburg fended off Brock Zearfoss of Jonestown for the victory in Friday night’s 30-lap Ray Tilley Classic for 410 sprint cars.

It was Wolfe’s second win in a row at the track in 410 sprint car competition after having won the National Open last September, the last time the 410 sprints competed at the track.

The victory, Wolfe’s third career at Selinsgrove and fifth overall this season, was worth $4,088 plus the custom crystal trophy cup from the Tilley family.

Andrew Yoder of Middleburg won his second straight 355 econo late model race at the track in the division’s 15-lap main event.

TJ Stutts and Lucas Wolfe shared the front row for the start of the sprint car main event with Wolfe grabbing the lead down the backstretch. Fourth-place starter Brock Zearfoss raced underneath Stutts at the same time and began his pursuit of the leader.

By lap six, Wolfe began to encounter slower traffic as Zearfoss raced second, followed by Stutts, and third-place starter Danny Dietrich. At the halfway point, Zearfoss began to close in on Wolfe in a high-speed chase around the Superspeedway of Dirt Track Racing.

With eight laps to go, Zearfoss almost got within striking distance in traffic. The race’s first and only caution flag unfurled on lap 25 when fifth-place runner Jason Shultz blew a tire and parked his sprinter sideways in turns one and two.

When the race resumed, Wolfe maintained the front spot with Zeafoss in tow. The final two laps saw Dietrich power by Stutts for the third position. At the checkered flag, Wolfe was victorious by just two seconds over Zearfoss, Deitrch, Stutts, and Aaron Ott.

Polesitter Tim Fedder led the start of the econo late model main event. A close battle unfolded at the front of the pack between Fedder, Todd Snook, and Shaun Miller. On the second circuit, second-place starter Andrew Yoder reclaimed the position and set his sights on the leader.

On a lap five restart, Yoder took the lead from Fedder with an inside through turn two. Fedder later brought out the caution flag for a flat tire and rejoined the race. Yoder continued to set the pace and posted a mere 1.39 second margin of victory over Miller, Fedder, Devin Hart, and Jared Fulkroad.

WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY
JUNE 16, 2017
KODY SWANSON’S LATE RACE PASS NETS HIM HORN-SCHINDLER MEMORIAL FRIDAY NIGHT AT WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY
MECHANICSBURG, PA – Kody Swanson didn’t lead the most laps in the Horn-Schindler Memorial for the USAC Silver Crown cars Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway, but he led when it counted the most.
Swanson, of Carmel, Ind., drove by race-long leader Damion Gardner with 16 laps to go in the 100-lap main event and scored his 17th career Silver Crown win tying him for second all-time. The win was worth $8,000.
“I’m so grateful to have the opportunities that I do to run for the DePalma Family number 63,” said an emotional Swanson in victory lane. “What an historic race track at Williams Grove. Last year, we weren’t even in the picture, but I felt like we did some things really well. These guys never quit and I’m never going to quit on them. I screwed up qualifying. It was my job to make it up to them.”
California’s Gardner started on the pole and quickly began to build a lead. With 10 laps completed, Gardner’s lead was 4.30 seconds over Justin Grant and Jerry Coons Jr.
Two-time Silver Crown champion and current series point leader Swanson grabbed third from Coons as Gardner’s lead was now 6 seconds.
Gardner continued to blast through the field building a 9.29 second lead by the 30-lap mark. Swanson closed the gap on Grant for second.
The first caution flag flew with 31 laps completed as C.J. Leary stopped in turn two.
Gardner controlled the restart and pulled away from Grant, Swanson and Coons.
At the 50-lap mark, it was Gardner by 3.30 seconds with no changes behind him. Grant began to slowly close on the leader as they reached 60 laps completed.
Swanson, who started seventh, used an inside pass of Grant to take over the runner-up spot on lap 62.
“Starting seventh, you’re going to have to have a few battles if you’re going to make it up through there,” said Swanson. “I’m thankful to get it done tonight.”
The caution flag erased Gardner’s lead with 35 laps to go. Grant pitted under the caution giving up the third spot. Only eight cars remained on the track.
With 25 laps go, Swanson was only a few car lengths behind Gardner. Swanson continued to pressure Gardner, but jumped the first turn cushion and lost some ground with 20 laps left.
He got a great run at the leader off turn two and was back within striking distance with 18 laps to go. The lead was only about two car lengths the next time by the frontstretch. Swanson drove next to him down the backstretch. They race side-by-side through the third and fourth turns and down the frontstretch with Swanson scored the leader with 16 laps to go. He secured the lead off turn two and began to pull away.
A caution for debris with 12 to go erased a 1.332 second lead for Swanson.
Swanson was quickly back up to speed on the restart and was pulling away again with five laps to go. Chris Windom raced by Brady Bacon and into fourth over the final laps.
Swanson scored the win by 2.155 seconds over Gardner and Coons.
“My car was great all night,” said Gardner. “Kody came on late and that’s his specialty. We need to be about 10 laps better.”
“To come here and run third, I’m pretty happy with that,” said Coons.
Windom and Bacon completed the top five. Joe Liguori, Patrick Bruns, Austin Nemire, Grant, and Shane Cockrum rounded out the top 10.
Pennsylvania drivers Mark Smith, Steve Buckwalter and Dave Berkheimer participated in the event. Smith finished 11th, Buckwalter 13th and Berkheimer 18th.
Gardner set quick time with a lap of 20.430. It was close, but not a track record which was set last year at 20.379. Windom, Cockrum, Grant and Leary followed Gardner in qualifying results.
Joss Moffatt flipped over the first turn fence and through a billboard during the opening lap of warm ups. He was okay, but done for the night. Johnny Petrozelle flipped during his time trial lap in the third turn. He was also okay and the car was actually pushed back to the pit area.
In the 20-lap USAC/ARDC Midget feature, it was Bacon and Tanner Carrick racing hard for the lead in the early laps before Bacon secured it.
A lap eight caution flag slowed the pace.
Bacon blasted away from the field after the restart as the fleet of Keith Kunz midgets battled for top five spots behind him.
Bacon’s 5.427-second lead was erased by a caution with two laps to go.
It didn’t matter as Bacon controlled the restart as the Kunz midgets continued their battle. Carrick, Tanner Thorson, Spencer Bayston and Ryan Robinson completed the top five. Holly Shelton, Ryan Greth, PJ Garguilo, Shawn Jackson and Kenny Miller rounded out the top 10.
Robinson and Bacon won the heat races.

UPCOMING EVENTS: Fri., June 23, 2017 – 358 Sprints, Mason Dixon 270 Micro Sprints, 600 Micro Sprints, Limited Stocks, Vintage Cars (Les Coghill Memorial) (Gates open at 5:30 p.m., Heats begin at 7:45 p.m.)

SNEERINGER CLAIMS SECOND ’17 WIN IN TRAIL-WAY 358 SPRINTS; Pascoe best in Central PA Legends feature; Stremmel, Hartlaub other TW winners

HANOVER, PA (6/16/2017) – Spring Grove’s Isaac Sneeringer took the lead from his fourth starting spot in the opening lap and led every lap of Friday night’s 25-lap “358” sprint car feature at Trail-Way Speedway.

And he did it in impressive fashion, crossing in a non-stop time of six minutes, seven point 94 seconds and lapping all but two other cars in the process.

“When you have good cars behind you, you can’t let up,” said Sneeringer upon exiting the ATI Worldwide Logistics #19Z in victory lane, “But she started overheating and I don’ know how many more laps it would have gone.”

Once it got started, the race went non-stop. But there were two earlier attempts to start the race. On the initial start, Dwight Leppo (driving the Shai Morris #15s) and Cody Fletcher made contact in turns one and two, with Fletcher taken off on the stretcher. Last week’s winner David Holbrook also pulled into the infield and retired for the night. On the second attempt to start the race, T.J. DeHaven flipped exiting turn two but was unimjured.

Although Sneeringer led every lap, there was a race-long battle for second between J.B. Cunningham and Steve Owings, with Owings nipping Cunningham at the line. In the end, they were the only three cars to finish on the lead lap.

Crossing fourth and fifth one lap down were Joe Trone, Jr. and Zach Euculano.

Heats for the 11 sprint cars were won by Leppo and Hobrook.

Australia’s Hayden Pascoe scored his first Trail-Way win in the 20-lap Central PA Legends feature. He started on the pole, led the first lap, then chased Scott Houdeshell for the next 13 laps before reclaiming the lead for good on lap 15. Houdeshell settled for second a half-carlength behind, with Bill Diehl, Travis Mc Clelland, and 12th-starting Mason Chaney rounding out the top five.

Qualifiers for the 18 Legends were won by Diehl and the other Australian in the field Dan Morris. Morris spun the backstretch of lap 13 while running third in the feature and finished 11th.

Jeremy Stremmel won both the heat race and feature event for the eight street stocks on hand.

Mike Walls led the first lap but came to a stop in turn four of lap two, handing the lead to Stremmel. Shortly thereafter, Brian Walls joined the chase, and was actually scored the leader of laps 13 through 15. Stremmel reclaimed the lead on lap 16, and the two got together while racing for the lead in turn two of lap 17. Walls suffered a flat tire and dropped from the field.

In the end, only three cars finished the race, with last week’s winner Michael Goodwin piloting an ill-handling race car to second and Aaron Beard third. Terry Hartlaub won his first of the year in the non-stop 15-lap limited stock feature. Cody Klinedinst led the first two laps and finished a close second, with Jason Chronister, Robbie Carroll, and Jeff Foster completing the top five.

Heats for the 22 limited stocks were won by Roy Denike, Klinedinst, and Justin Wagaman.

Next Friday, June 23, 2017, Trail-Way Speedway will be back in action with the 358 Sprints, Mason Dixon 270 Micro Sprints, 600 Micro Sprints, Limited Stocks and Vintage Cars (Les Coghill Memorial). Gates open at 5:30 p.m. and racing begins at 7:45 p.m.

KEVIN THOMAS JR TURNS BACK CHRIS WINDOM TO WIN USAC SPRINT CAR RETURN TO WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY

MECHANICSBURG, PA – Kevin Thomas Jr. took the lead back from Chris Windom and then took his inside line away over the second half of the USAC Sprint Car Feature Thursday night at Williams Grove Speedway.

From there, Thomas cruised to victory in the first USAC Sprint car race completed at the Grove since 1996.

It was the opening night of the Grove’s USAC Triple Crown Showdown and the third night of the annual Eastern Storm for the USAC Sprint cars.

For Thomas, who celebrated his birthday Wednesday night, his 13th career USAC Sprint car win was worth $6,000.

“This place has so much history,” said Thomas Jr. “Windom showed me the bottom in three and four. It was getting pretty hairy up there. It was getting thin and right next to the wall and you couldn’t carry a lot of speed. There was a little bit of moisture and rubber along the bottom of three and four. I had to get back in front of him. It was a fun race. I’m pumped to win at Williams Grove.”

Windom eventually settled for third.

“We were really good the first half of the race, but I think I burned off my tires too much,” said Windom. “We were a little too good, too early. He was better late. I wish I could have cleared him when I got to him and took his line away.”

Thomas Jr. started second and grabbed the early race lead over USAC National point leader Justin Grant and polesitter Jarett Andretti.

Windom and Chase Stockon moved by Andretti and into third and fourth.

A red flag stopped the race with three laps completed when Robert Ballou crashed in turn three. He was able to return to the race.

Grant got high off turn four allowing Windom and Stockon to drive by as Thomas continued to lead with five laps completed. Grant got back on the gas and raced back by Stockon and into third.

Thomas led Windom by 1.664 seconds with nine laps completed as Stockon passed Grant again.

Windom began to close on the leader as he worked the inside groove and Thomas was up on the cushion. At the half-way point, his lead was down to 0.564.

Windom was inside of the leader as they raced off turn four. They were side-by-side as they raced down the frontstretch. They swapped the lead in between turns one and two. Thomas led off the second turn and switched to the bottom groove entering turn three.

With 10 laps to go, Thomas was able to pull away from Windom. Thomas continued to work the cushion in turns one and two, but stayed low in three and four over the final five laps.

He would win by 2.362 seconds as Stockon took second from Windom. Grant and Brady Bacon completed the top five. Shane Golobic, Thomas Meseraull, Andretti, Jerry Coons Jr. and former Williams Grove super sportsman winner Carmen Perigo Jr. rounded out the top 10 after starting 20th.

Stockon set fast time over the 32-car field with a lap of 20.035 seconds. It was a track record.

Williams Grove regulars Danny Dietrich and Mark Smith both won a heat race as did fellow Pennsylvania driver Joey Biasi. Brady Bacon was the only USAC driver to win a heat race.

In the 20-lap USAC/ARDC midget feature, Ryan Greth grabbed the early race lead before a first lap caution flag slowed the pace.

Greth controlled the restart as Steve Buckwalter tried to take second from Ryan Robinson.

Another yellow slowed the field on lap two.

Spencer Bayston drove by two cars and into second on the restart. Bayston got inside Greth off turn four to take the lead with three laps completed.

Robinson moved inside Greth taking second as Brady Bacon raced into fourth.

The race was slowed again on lap seven.

One night after crashing on the final lap at Grandview Speedway, San Jose, California’s Thomas Meseraull claimed the $6,000 top prize in race #2 of the Amsoil USAC wingless sprint car Eastern Storm tour at Lincoln Speedway Wednesday night.

It was Meseraull’s second overall win of the year and fifth USAC win of his career.

Sixth through tenth were Tyler Courtney, Shane Golobic, C.J. Leary, Kyle Robbins, and Jerry Coons, Sr. Alex Bright was the hard charger after coming from 22nd staring spot to finish 11th.

THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES

NAPA AUTO PARTS NIGHT ON THE HILL. . . . .

BRADY BACON SIZZLES ON HOT THUNDER ON THE HILL NIGHT; DUANE HOWARD TOPS GRANDVIEW MODS; EASTERN STORM ROLLS ONTO LINCOLN SPEEDWAY WEDNESDAY NIGHT, JUNE 14

BECHTELSVILLE, PA (JUNE 13, 2017) – It was a hot NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series night at Grandview Speedway and a packed house witnessed Broken Arrow, Oklahoma’s Brady Bacon collecting the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car Series win, claiming the $6,000 to win Jesse Hockett Classic. Oley, PA’s Duane Howard claimed the win in the 30 lap $3,000 to win NASCAR 358 Modified feature, an event presented by Pioneer Pole Buildings.

This year’s Jesse Hockett Classic marked Bacon’s 18th career USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car Series and his first NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series win. A field of thirty-two USAC sprints cars and thirty-two 358 Modifieds took part in the program. Even with extremely warm temperatures and a 50% chance of rain, the show did go on.

Greenfield, IN’s CJ Leary charged from the top starting spot battling with current USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car Series Point Leader, Justin Grant. Leary and Grant pulled away from the 23-car starting field gaining a sizable advantage before a lap 7 yellow.

Leary maintained control on the restart, with Grant hot on his heels and Chad Boespflug close for third. But as the leaders pulled away from the pack, a three-car battle for fourth-place ensued as Bacon challenged Dave Darland and Kevin Thomas, Jr.

Just prior to half-way a turn-1 flip ended Carlisle, PA’s Chandler Leiby run. The red flag for Leiby, and an incident grandstand side halted the action for a lengthy period of time.

The open red, allowed crews to adjust their cars moving furiously around the open-wheel beasts and preparing for the second half of the feature event.

On the restart, Leary held the top spot, but all eyes were on Brady Bacon. Bacon charged three-wide with Grant and Kevin Thomas, Jr.

Bacon overtook Leary holding the inside line on lap 24 but Leary held on rim-riding the top side. Bacon charged alongside Leary as the two diced side-by-side for nearly 10 laps. Leary overtook Bacon with four-laps remaining, but an altercation with a lapped car slowed Leary and gave Bacon the opportunity to pounce forward for the $6,000 victory. Leary settled for second, Chris Windom finished in a hard-fought third place, Kevin Thomas Jr. came home in fourth and Justin Grant finished fifth.

The Eastern Storm continues on Wednesday at the Lincoln Speedway featuring the USAC Non-wing sprints cars and the 358 wing sprint cars. Gates open at 5 PM with race time set for 7:30 PM.

Oley, PA’s Duane Howard claimed his 10th Thunder on the Hill Racing Series win leading the Norm’s Save Station No. 357 to the checkered flag in the non-stop 30-lap 358 Modified feature event.

Mike Gular quickly took the lead from his front row starting position and battled back-and-forth with John Willman. Howard moved into the second-position on lap nine with Craig VonDohren and Jeff Strunk quickly on his tail.

The leaders hit lapped traffic on the 14th circuit, and Howard closed quickly on Gular as VonDohren hammerd the cushion around the top side. Howard’s No. 357 slipped inside Gular with 10-laps remaining and VonDohren followed closely winding up the top side of the 1/3-mile oval.

Howard held on for the win, VonDohren came home second, Gular third, Jeff Strunk in the fourth position and Ryan Godown rounded out the top five finishers.

The NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series returns to action on Tuesday, July 4 for Pennsylvania Sprint Car Speedweek. The 410 Sprint Cars compete in a double header with the NASCAR 358 Modifieds. Gates open at 4 PM with race time set for 7:30 PM.

RINE’S 104th CAREER SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY LATE MODEL VICTORY WORTH $4,000
& APPALACHIAN MOUNTIAN DIRT LATE MODEL SPEEDWEEK SERIES TITLE;
OUT-RUNS ECKERT IN INTENSE A-MAIN ON SUPER RACING SURFACE!
TOMACEK SCORES FIRST OF SEASON IN 360 SPRINTS;
SLANKER DUELS WITH MITCH FOR PRO STOCK VICTORY

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Jeff Rine’s 104th career super late model victory at Selinsgrove Speedway Saturday night was worth $4,000 and the Appalachian Mountain Dirt Late Model Series title. The Danville driver didn’t take the lead until lap 30 in the intense 40-lap thriller and held off Rick Eckert of York for the prestigious win.

Rine came into the event trailing series leader Jason Covert of York Haven by only 27 points and bested a stellar field of 32 super late model drivers. Covert finished second in the series points with last year’s champion Kenny Pettyjohn of Millboro, Del., rounding out the top three.

Eric Tomacek of Abbottstown put on a show around the top of the race track to score his first win of the season in the 25-lap 360 sprint car main event, while Tommy Slanker of York out-dueled Brad Mitch of McClure for this third victory of the year in the 15-lap pro stock main event.

Selinsgrove Speedway will present a two-race weekend Friday, June 16 and Saturday, June 17. Friday night’s race at 8 p.m. will feature the first appearance of the season by the 410 sprint cars in the 30-lap, $4,000-to-win Ray Tilley Classic plus 355 econo late models. Track gates on Friday will open at 6 p.m.

Saturday night’s racing card will showcase the 360 sprint cars in the Patriot Sprint Tour-sanctioned Joe Whitcomb Memorial plus super late models, pro stocks, and roadrunners at 7:30 p.m. Track gates will open at 5 p.m.

Polesitter Matt Cosner and second-place starter Rick Eckert drag raced around the half-mile oval at the start of the late model main event. Eckert had a slight lead until Cosner pulled in front on lap three. By lap seven, fourth-place starter Jeff Rine and Eckert were dueling for second as Cosner led the way.

At the lap nine marker, Cosner began to encounter slower traffic. Kyle Hardy, who started twelfth, showed a lot of speed around the top of the race track and stormed into the fourth spot on lap 12. He then passed Rine for third on the 17th circuit. At the halfway point, Cosner led Eckert, Rine, and Hardy.

Hardy eventually moved into second and began to reel in Cosner. The race’s first caution flag unfurled on lap 28 when Austin Hubbard’s car rolled to a stop. When the race resumed, Hardy drifted too high and lost spots as a war on wheels unfolded at the front of the pack. On the 30th circuit, Rine took the lead from Cosner with an outside pass in turn four.

Despite two more restarts, Rine held off Eckert for the checkered flag by just .89 of second. Cosner, Hardy, and Steve Campbell rounded out the top five.

Outside front row starter Eric Tomacek powered into the lead at the start of the 360 sprint car feature over polesitter Derek Steward. Fourth-place starter Michael Walter drove into the second spot on lap three and began to close in on Tomacek. By lap five, Tomacek was the pacesetter over Walter, fifth-place starter Cody Keller, Steward, and third-place starter Justin Whittal.

Chad Layton, who started seventh, advanced to fourth on lap nine. At the halfway point, Walter was in striking distance in slower traffic. The first caution flag unfurled at halfway for Michael Thomas who was able to rejoin the race.

When the race resumed, 11th-place starter and current points leader Davie Franek stormed into the top five. With 10 laps remaining, a close three-car battle unfolded between Walter, Keller, and Layton for the runner-up spot.

In the final laps, Layton posed a threat to Walter for the second spot as Tomacek drove to victory. Walter finished a strong second with Layton, Keller, and Franek rounding out the top five.

Second-place starter AJ Hoffman took the lead at the start of the pro stock feature. Fourth-place starter AJ Stroup quickly took over the runner-up spot. On lap four, the caution flag unfurled when Hoffman’s car developed a flat tire.

GENE KNAUB CAPTURES CARL BILLET MEMORIAL Mitten Takes Sportsman First while Hoffer Takes Street Stock 40 By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA…6/10/17 Gene Knaub showed the fast way around Susquehanna Speedway Saturday night as he captured the 30-lap FK Rod Ends Carl Billet Memorial for the Bernheisel Race Cars 358 Late Models.

Knaub’s win was his second of the season at the speedway and came with a $1,500 payday for his Superior Homes, 382 Auto Sales, Route 30 Seafood sponsored No. 1 team. Knaub’s win came in a race run in memory of one of the all time greats in 358 late model racing in Central Pennsylvania, Carl Billet-who passed in early 2013, just after claiming his seventh and final Susquehanna track championship.

Sean Merkel led the first six circuits before giving way to Knaub on the seventh lap. Knaub, who started fourth on the grid maintained the top spot as defending track champion Randy Christine, Jr. kept pace with the leader and had a lap 25 caution put him right on Knaub’s bumper. But Knaub, of Dover wasn’t to be denied the big win as he took the checkered flag ahead of Christine with ninth starting Shaun Jones, 10th starting Charles Potts and JR Rodriquez completing the top five finishers.

Sixth through tenth were Sam Gallagher, Travis Mease, 17th starter Steve Billet, 18th starter Sam Rial and Merkel.

Ralph Morgan,Jr. and Christine were heat winners for the 19 late models. Knaub was quick time during time trials with a lap of 19.023.

It’s been tough going for defending track champion Russ Mitten so far this season but the Newville racer came away with his first win of the season in the 25-lap Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman feature.

Mitten, who led the division with three wins and of course the track title last season has been hindered by all sorts of issues this season but that first win came in impressive fashion, coming from his ninth starting to claim the lead ith eight laps complete. Mitten never looked back as he drove away from the field to post the win in his Newville Electrical Services/RPM Chassis.

Kenny Edkin followed Mitten from the fifth row to finish in the runner-up spot over 16th starting Paul Miller, Devin Beidel and 19th starter Mike Enders as Gregg Foster, early race leader Bruce Buckwalter, Jr., Scott Dellinger, Jay Fannasy and Garrett Williamson rounded out the top ten finishers.

Steve Storrie, Frankie Herr and Chad Smith won heats for the 28 car field. Enders won the consolation.

In what turned out to be quite a marathon, Joey Hoffer scored the big win in the Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stock 40.

The 40 lap feature saw 11 cautions and one red, lots of crashed race cars but in the end it was Hoffer who led from the 12th lap take the win.

Hoffer became the sixth different winner in as many races this season and he took the win over Jasen Geesaman, early leader Craig Morgan, Jimmy Combs and Jim Palm.

Sixth went to Dalton Frye over Kevin Sigler, Jim Jacobs, David Dietz and Butch Helsel. Kory Sites crossed third but failed post race inspection.

Heats for the 33 street stocks were won by Ryan Smith, Kory Sites and Hoffer.

Morgan paced time trials with a lap of 21.565.

The Superior Homes Extreme Stock feature was postponed due to curfew. It will be made up on June 24.

Susquehanna Speedway returns to action Saturday, June 17th on Newberry Township EMS/Fire/Police Night at the speedway as the Freedmont® Mortgage Lending PASS/IMCA 305 Sprints headline a four-division program joined by the Bernheisel Race Cars 358 Late Models, Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stocks and the ServiceMaster Clean Central PA Legends.

Williams Grove Honors Legacy of Horn & Schindler With USAC Silver Crown Memorial Friday

Williams Grove Speedway will continue the revival of a decades long event this Friday night, June 16 at 7:30 pm when for the second year in a row it brings back the Ted Horn/Bill Schindler Memorial race, sanctioned by the USAC Silver Crown Series.

The event was discontinued after the 1974 race that was won by Bruce Walkup of Downey, California.

And then last season, USAC and Silver Crown returned to the oval in a much-heralded apperance to revive the race and the Silver Crown stars and the race did not disappoint with Chris Windom of Cantonville, Ill., taking the prestigious championship event chased by the furious charge of Indiana’s Bryan Clauson.

First run in 1939 and known at Williams Grove as the “Sweepstakes Race,” the maiden winner was Vic Nauman of Lebanaon, Pennsylvania.

Over the years various circuits including AAA from 1939-1941 and again from 1946 – 1955 sanctioned the race.

CSRA sanctioned the race in 1945. The USAC East Series conducted the event from 1956-1960 and then the USAC National Sprint Series sanctioned the event until it was discontinued in 1974.

The race first took on the Memorial theme after Ted Horn of Cincinnati, Ohio, was killed in a racing accident at the Duquoin Illinois State Fairgrounds in October of 1948.

Bill Schindler’s name was then added after Schindlers untimely demise in a racing accident at Allentown, Pennsylvania, in 1952.

Schindler, a native of Middletown, New York, competed in the Indianapolis 500 during his career and scored a pair of victories at Williams Grove Speedway.

Horn, also an Indy 500 racer and a AAA circuit champion, was a 14-time Williams Grove winner during his career.

The USAC/ARDC Midgets will compete at Williams Grove on Friday night along with the USAC Silver Crown Series.

Schindler was the very first ARDC Midget Series president when it was founded in 1939 and he held the position through the 1946 season.

The USAC Silver Crown cars will compete in the 100-lap Horn/Schindler Memorial paying $8,000 to win out of a $34,000 purse, in honor of the late racing greats.

Prior to 2016, Silver Crown itself last competed at Williams Grove Speedway back in July, 1981, when Eddie Leavitt of Kearney, Missouri, scored the win.

Adult general admission tickets are $30 with youth ages 13 – 20 admitted for $10 and ages 12 and under admitted for free.

 

 

USAC Triple Crown Showdown To Be Staged At Williams Grove June 15 & 16

Thursday offers return of USAC 410 sprints for first show since 1996, Friday boasts USAC Silver Crown big cars in 100-lap Horn/Schindler Memorial!

Locals Smith, Buckwalter, Dietrich and Bright to compete

6/11/17

Mechanicsburg – Williams Grove Speedway will host two huge nights of USAC sprint car and midget competition coming up on Thursday, June 15 and again on Friday, June 16 as the historic oval stages the USAC Triple Crown Showdown.

The USAC Triple Crown Showdown will showcase all three forms of USAC competition on the big half-mile clay oval at Williams Grove.

Both racing programs begin at 7:30 pm.

On Thursday night, the wingless USAC 410 sprint cars and stars of the United States Auto Club will compete in the third leg of the 2017 USAC Eastern Storm tour that visits several area tracks.

Thursday’s main event will pay $6,000 to win the 30-lap feature event while the USAC/ARDC midgets are also on the program.

If completed, the June 15 USAC sprint car event at Williams Grove Speedway will be the first held at the track in some 21 years, dating back to 1996 when Billy Pauch took a win for the locals aboard the Zemco No. 1 sprinter.

Slated USAC appearances since that time have fallen victim to rain.

For this USAC 410 sprint swing, Gettysburg’s Danny Dietrich is expected to be in action along with Sunbury’s Mark Smith and midget driver Alex Bright.

And then on Friday night, June 16 the USAC Silver Crown champ cars will compete in the 100-lap Ted Horn/Bill Schindler Memorial boasting a $34,000 purse paying $8,000 to win, along with USAC/ARDC Midgets.

The Friday Williams Grove show will continue the revival of a decades long event when for the second year in a row the Ted Horn/Bill Schindler Memorial race is staged, sanctioned by the USAC Silver Crown Series.

The event was discontinued after the 1974 race that was won by Bruce Walkup of Downey, California.

But in 2016, USAC and Silver Crown returned to Williams Grove in a much-heralded apperance to revive the race and the Silver Crown stars and the race did not disappoint as Chris Windom of Cantonville, Ill., took the prestigious championship event chased by the charge of Indiana’s Bryan Clauson.

For the 2017 version, local drivers Dave Berkheimer, Steve Buckwalter and Mark Smith re expected to compete with the traveling big car stars.

Adult general admission for Friday’s show is $30 with youth ages 13 – 20 admitted for $10. Thursday adult general admission is priced at $25 with youth again set at $10.

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

The Williams Grove portion of the 50/50 drawing on Thursday will be donated to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network while the Friday recipient will be the Eastern Museum of Motor Racing.

There will be no regular Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint car competition at Williams Grove Speedway on either night of the USAC Triple Crown Showdown.

DIETRICH CLAIMS NATIONAL FALLEN FIREFIGHTERS NIGHT WIN FOR 4TH OF THE YEAR IN LINCOLN 410 SPRINTS;

Givler gives celebrates birthday with first-ever Lincoln 358 sprint victory; Australian Morris wins Legends feature

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA – June 10, 2017 –“It’s fun to be fast here! They’ve got a heck-of-a race track here.”

So said Danny Dietrich after scoring his fourth win of the year in the 33-lap National Fallen Firefighters Night 410 sprint car feature in memory of Lincoln neighbor Brandon Little at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

“You try to be smart there at the end. I don’t know if anybody was there, but we’re just trying to finish off the races and put ourselves in a position to win,” said Dietrich in victory lane, “We’ve run second a few times here lately. Second is good. But running second is like going to a championship game and always be runner-up, so it feels good to finally be sitting here.”

A unique 12-car redraw among the handicapped cars placed Dietrich fifth for the start with brother Billy on the pole. Billy led the first four laps before third-starting Jim Siegel drove around him exiting turn two of lap five.

Siegel led the next 14 laps through heavy lapped traffic and two red flags (Chase Dietz in a turn two flip on lap 11 and Cole Young with a turn one flip on lap 12, both drivers who were uninjured.

Danny got around brother Billy for second on lap ten, just before the first red flag. Billy saw his night end with a spinout in turn two of lap 15.

That allowed Danny to close on Siegel’s back bumper with 13 laps to go. Defending champ Alan Krimes entered the picture by challenging Robbie Kendall for third on lap 16. Four laps later, Danny pulled a slider in turns three and four following a 20th-lap restart following a spin by Tyler Ross in turn four while running in the top ten.

Siegel lost power steering midway through the race, and Krimes worked into the runner-up spot around Siegel on the 24th lap. Points leader Brian Montieth, who started 12th, got by the fading Siegel for third a lap later, and Krimes and Montieth battled for the runner-up spot the rest of the way, with Dietrich easily pulling away to a 3.275 second win, the 35th of his Lincoln career, moving him into a ninth-place tie with Johnny Mackison, Sr. on the all-time Lincoln win list.

“I told (crew chief) Jake (Hinkle) we to set up for the end of this race. We had to maintain early, get up front, and be good at the end. I figured as long as I didn’t see that 21 get to second I was okay to run the top…until I saw the 87 under me…and I thought I did,” said Dietrich, “I felt too good up top. Jake kept telling me to run the bottom and I wouldn’t do it. I just did feel good and couldn’t carry speed down there. I knew with Jim behind me…I was trying to play the dirty air game and take the line from him. It all worked out in the end.”

Krimes crossed second, with Montieth third. 14th-starting Cory Haas and tenth-starting Matt Campbell rounded out the top five. Sixth through tenth were Chad Trout, 13th-starting Brandon Rahmer, Siegel, Kendall, and 17th-starting Gerard McIntyre, Jr.

Heats for the 25 “410” Sprints were won by Krimes, Montieth, and Siegel, with Freddie Rahmer winning the consolation.

Freddie Rahmer’s included an engine change after his car went up in flames in his heat and an early race spin that ended his night with a 24th place finish.

Jordan Givler celebrated his 27th birthday (Sunday) by claiming his first career Lincoln win in the 20-lap 358 sprint car feature. Givler started on the pole, yielded to third-starting Ashley Cappetta for the first two laps, then reclaimed the lead on lap three and led the rest of the way.

Doug Hammaker started 11th and was already up to second by the end of the fifth lap. But even he could not catch Givler through heavy lapped traffic over the final 15 non-stop laps.

Cappetta held on for a career best third-place finish, with fellow female driver Brie Hershey crossing fourth and Troy Wagaman, Jr. fifth. Sixth through tenth were Matt Findley, points leader Adrian Shaffer, Kevin Nouse, Cody Fletcher, and Kyle Denmyer.

Heats for the 31 “358” Sprints were won by Denmyer, Hammaker, and Chandler Leiby, with Steve Drevicki winning the consolation.

Australian invader Dan Morris outran fellow Aussie Heyden Pascoe and Lucas Montgomery to win the 20-lap Central PA Legends feature. Morris, in the states for a series of four-races as teammate to Chad Earnst, chased race-long leader Pascoe from lap six to 19 before making the race-winning pass at the line with the white flag flying. Montgomery caught Pascoe for second and Mason Chaney squeezed into third on the final lap as the four leaders raced off turn four to the checkered flag. Travis Perry came from 15th-starting spot to finish fifth.

Heats for the 40 Central PA Legends were won by Morris, Scott Haudeshell, Justin Mitchell, and Scott Smith. Twin consolation races were won by Trent Yoder and Rocky Maggaro.

Lincoln Speedway is back in action this coming Wednesday night with the annual appearance of the traveling Amsoil USAC Sprint cars (Wingless). They will be joined by the 358 Sprints with time trials getting underway at 7 PM, and gates opening at 5 PM.

Then next Saturday night, June 17th, it will be BAPS NIGHT featuring the 410 Sprints and 358 Sprints. In addition, there it will be York Flooring Kids Big Wheel Races. Gates open at 5:30 PM, with racing action getting underway at 7:30 PM.

Hodnett Gets Career 50th In Port Royal Sprints, Takes First Oval Checkers Of 2017

Drew Ritchey Brings Family Name Back To Port Royal Victory Lane In 305s

Irvin edges for econo late model checkers

6/10/17

Port Royal – Greg Hodnett won his first Port Royal Speedway 410 sprint car main of the year on Saturday night, passing Aaron Ott for the lead and then outrunning Dylan Cisney to the finish for a $4,000 payday.

In the 305 sprint main, Drew Ritchey of Everett scored a popular win in the footsteps of his grandfather, Junior Ritchey, who made his mark on the speedway in the 1960s, notching 20 full-size sprint car wins during his tenure.

And in the econo late model main, a door to door finish found Eric Irvin edging out Derrick Garman for the victory.

Third starter Aaron Ott pounced at the start of the 410 sprint main and took the early lead with second starter Mike Wagner giving chase.

Hodnett, who won a URC sprint feature at the track a few weeks ago, started fourth in the field and took third from Joey Hershey on the second lap.

Ott entered the backmarkers on the sixth tour and that’s when Hodnett was able to race around Wagner for second.

Ott had a decent lead over Hodnett until a brush with disaster in the second turn helped Hodnett close the gap when he clouted the outside wall but kept going.

This allowed Hodnett to close some distance but a caution flag unfurling with nine laps completed in the 25-lapper for debris was just what Hodnett needed.

The Spring Grove driver blasted by Ott on the restart as the pair raced into and through the first and second turns.

Cisney then got by Ott for second with 12 laps to go and threatened to run down Hodnett in traffic.

The front duo was pretty equally matched for speed as Cisney would close in for the lead on some laps and then Hodnett would again sneak away subsequently and the pair continued that trend all the way to the finish.

Meanwhile, Ott, Lucas Wolfe and Blane Heimbach waged war for third, fourth and fifth spots during the final half of the race, exchanging the positions repeatedly with Heimbach using the bottom groove while the others worked the topside.

Heimbach was as high as third at one point only to surrender to Ott late in the event as well as to Wolfe, placing him fifth at the finish.

Sixth through 10th went to TJ Stutts, Mike Wagner, Doug Esh, Brock Zearfoss and Joey Hershey.

Hodnett’s win was the 50th of his Port Royal career and third overall of the season, coming by 2.195 seconds over Cisney.

With a scant point lead over Doug Esh entering the event, Cisney gained some valuable points with his finish in the chase for the season title.

Heats went to Cisney, Wolfe and Hodnett. Wolfe set fast time with a lap of 16.727 seconds.

Polesitter Cale Reigle would lead the first seven laps of the 18-lap 305-sprint car main before Drew Ritchey would take over.

After starting eighth in the field, Ritchey was taking no prisoners in the non-stop affair, cruising as high around the speedway as he could possibly get while flirting with disaster aboard his No. 880.

On more than one occasion Ritchey slammed the outside walls and even rode the first turn rail at one point but kept going to get the win, sometimes passing two cars at a time to advance through the field.

Ritchey took the win in exciting style and was greeted by his veteran grandfather, Junior Ritchey in victory lane for a special family victory lane celebration.

Reigle ended up 1.861 seconds behind at the finish with Scott Ellerman in third followed by Tyler Reeser and Roger Irvine.

Sixth through 10th went to Ken Duke Jr., Dave Grube, Zach Newlin, Kyle Ganoe and Kassidy Kreitz.

Heats went to Jaremi Hanson, Ganoe and Reeser with Nate Gramley taking the consolation race.

Jared Fulkroad led the first four circuits of the 18-lap econo late model main before polesitter Curt Dunn took over at the front.

Working through lapped traffic, Dunn collided with a slow car on the 14th lap and ended up crashing in the first corner, handing the lead over to Derrick Garman.

Garman started fourth in the field and raced into second on the eighth tour but found eighth starter Eric Irving knocking on the door over the final laps.

Irvin applied heavy pressure to the finish, drawing even with Garman as the pair raced off of the fourth turn for the checkers and edged Garman for the win by .305 seconds at the finish for the victory.

Garman was denied the win, instead getting second, followed by JR Toner, Andrew Shoop and Tim Fedder.

Sixth through 10th went to Shaun Miller, Chase Bowsman, Kenny Yoder, Ryan Walls and Harold Ranck Jr.

Heats went to Tim Krape and Irvin.

THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES

AMSOIL USAC NON-WING SPRINT EASTERN STORM HEADING EAST,

GRANDVIEW & LINCOLN TO OPEN SERIES TUESDAY, JUNE 13 AND WEDNESDAY, JUNE 14

USAC DRIVER NICKNAMES, DO THEY TELL A STORY ABOUT THE DRIVERS?

We’re just days away from the arrival of USAC drivers from California to Pennsylvania, heading east to open the 11th Annual Eastern Storm, getting underway at the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series event at the Grandview Speedway on Tuesday night, June 13. The following night, Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, PA will showcase this traveling series of non-wing 410 sprint cars joined by the 358 wing sprint cars. Both nights of racing will get underway at 7:30 PM.

The Eastern Storm will continue on Thursday night, June 15 at Williams Grove then close out the weekend on Saturday night, June 17 at Port Royal and Sunday night, June 18 at the Susquehanna Speedway. This will mark the eleventh annual swing of USAC here in the east, a tour organized by local special events organizer Bob Miller.

Nationally known drivers from numerous states are heading east for this five race series offering over $135,000 in prize money. Many of these drivers are heading to town with a nickname attached to them for one reason or another. But what do these nicknames tell us about these drivers?

We can start with Chris Windom from Canton, IL who is known as “The Bear”. There is also Robert Ballou from Rocklin, CA who earned the nickname “The Madman”, certainly explainable if you watched him power his way through Pennsylvania on previous Eastern Storms. One other point, Ballou sustained injuries last year in a crash that put him on the sidelines the balance of the year. In just his second start since the crash, “The Madman” was a feature winner. Is that mad or what?

Carmen Perigo of Stoystown, PA is labeled with, “Wind it Up and Watch Him Go”, not much to explain on this one. Now a little more interesting is Tyler Courtney of Indianapolis, IN who is known as “Sunshine”. What’s the story on that one?

Driver’s names also have something to do with those labels or nicknames. For example, Thomas Meseraull of San Jose, CA goes by “T-Mez”, the very popular Jerry Coons, Jr of Tucson, AZ known as “Coon Dog” as Kevin Thomas Jr of Cullman, AL goes by “KTJ”.

Perhaps your hometown has something to do with your nickname, like Chad Boespflug of Hanford, CA. Chad is well recognized as the “Hanford Hornet”, known for stinging the competition and stirring a buzz with the crowd. There is also Tony Dimattia of Malvern, PA, known as the “Malvern Missile”.

Now there are still two drivers that you might want to ask about their nicknames. First, Brady Bacon of Broken Arrow, CA who goes by, “The Macho Man” and local favorite Danny Dietrich is “Double D”. How did those nicknames come about?

Last but certainly not least, one of the most recognized USAC drivers, Dave Darland of Lincoln, IN was named by the race fans, “The People’s Champ”.

The Amsoil USAC Non-Wing Sprints Eastern Storm will open at the Grandview Speedway on Tuesday, June 13. This will also mark the opening event of the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series presented by Pioneer Pole Buildings. If you have never seen a non-wing 410 sprint car race (especially at Grandview Speedway) this is the show to see.

The Tuesday, June 13 event at Grandview Speedway will get underway at 7:30 PM. Joining the USAC non-wing sprints on the program will be the 358 Modifieds chasing a $3,000 payday for the 30 lap run. Craig VonDohren, Duane Howard, Jeff Strunk, Ryan Godown, Billy Pauch Jr., Ryan Watt, Rick Laubach and Frank Cozze, are some of the expected modified entries. Qualifying will take place for both divisions.

Other USAC entries to expect include Fort Branch, Indiana’s Chase Stockon, Kokomo, IN driver Shane Cottle, Sikeston, MO favorite Hunter Schuerenberg, and Landon Simon of Tipp City Ohio. I’m sure we all remember the 2016 Grandview performance by Mooresville, North Carolina’s driver Jarett Andretti, almost taking the win. Tyler Courtney of Indianapolis, IN, and Greenfield, IN driver C.J. Leary are hoping to break through for an Eastern Storm taste of victory.

On the local scene, Danny Dietrich a 410 sprint car feature winner at Grandview and the winner of the 2016 National Open at Williams Grove, plans to make his initial foray into USAC for Eastern Storm on the “hill” at Grandview. Defending ARDC Midget champion and 2016 Chili Bowl Midget Nationals preliminary feature winner Alex Bright, is a regular in USAC’s midget division, and will try his hand for the first time in a USAC Sprint Car.

Advance tickets for the Grandview USAC/358 Modified events are available by calling 443 513 4456. Please leave your name, phone number and the number of tickets you need. You may pay for and pick-up your tickets on race night at the Grandview Speedway WILL CALL window after 4 PM.

Rahmer Wins Second Of Williams Grove Sprint Car Season, Eckert Gets Late Model Speedweek

6/9/17

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Mechanicsburg – Freddie Rahmer Jr. won the third 410-sprint car feature of his young career at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, stealing the lead on the last lap from Alan Krimes to get his second checkers of the year that totaled $4,550.

Rahmer’s winner’s take of $4,550 included a $500 bonus for winning from the fifth row plus another $250 from WC Eshenaur for making a last lap pass.

In the 40-lap Late Model Speedweek feature, York’s Rick Eckert took the show and the $4,000 payday.

After receiving a gift of the pole position following a false initial start that called for swapped first and second rows, Alan Krimes used the inside pin to take the lead when the first lap was completed.

Aaron Ott came to second early and trailed Krimes into traffic on the eighth circuit with Rahmer up to fourth, racing ahead of 10th starter Lance Dewease.

A caution flag with nine laps completed for the stopped cars of TJ Stutts and Doug Esh regrouped the field and found Krimes streaking away from the pack on open track.

Ott, Anthony Macri, Rahmer and Dewease were battling for position by the halfway point of the 25-lapper with Krimes well out in front.

Rahmer began strengthening with 10 laps to go and was up to third but still a long way behind the leader when the red flag appeared with four laps left for Brock Zearfoss who found himself hung up on the outside first turn fence, facing the stars.

Rahmer blasted past Ott on the restart but was still well back of the leader, headed for the checkers when Rodney Westhafer stopped on the final lap, causing a caution period instead of the finish of the race.

And the final lap restart proved to be Krimes’ undoing as Rahmer got far enough around in the first and second turns to lead down the backchute and into the third turn.

And with the lead pair bunched up in the final turns, Lance Dewease blasted across the middle of the track to steal second in the final moments, relegating Krimes to third for the end of a fine run.

Rahmer’s margin of victory over Dewease was .193 seconds.

Greg Hodnett finished fourth followed by Aaron Ott.

Sixth through 10th went to Anthony Macri, Danny Dietrich, Mark Smith, Brian Montieth and Cory Haas.

Heats went to Haas, Chad Trout and Hodnett with the consolation going to Rick Lafferty.

Polesitter Gary Stuhler would lead from the beginning of the 40-lap main for the super late models chased by Jason Covert.

Fifth starter Gene Knaub was strong early, getting by Covert for second on the second lap as seventh starter Rick Eckert raced his way into the top five.

Eckert was up to third, chasing Knaub on the fourth lap, eventually winning the battle to be runner up with 16 tours recorded.

Shortly afterward, Knaub withdrew from the event but by that time Eckert was challenging Stuhler for control and with the narrowest of gaps opening up at the end of the backstretch with 22 laps to go, Eckert squeezed by Stuhler on the inside to get control.

A caution flag regrouped the field with 21 laps left and eyes would turn to Jeff Rine during the ensuing laps as the Danville driver made good time blasting the top of turnts three and four to work his way up to second, getting by Jamie Lathroum, Kyle Hardy, Covert and Stuhler.

And then it seemed just when Rine needed a caution for a close restart and a shot at the lead and win, he got one with eight laps to go but the race that might have been expected never materialized as Rine instead followed Eckert through the turns for the final loops.

The victory was the sixth of Eckert’s career at the oval, coming by 3.009 seconds over Rine, followed by Covert, Hardy and Stuhler.

Sixth through 10th went to Kenny Pettyjohn, Jamie Lathroum, Coleby Frye, Matt Cosner and Bryan Bernheisel.

Heats went to Covert, Stuhler and Pettyjohn with Covert setting fast time with a lap of 19.5 seconds.

HOLBROOK CLAIMS FIRST OF THE YEAR IN TRAIL-WAY 358 SPRINTS

HANOVER, PA (6/9/2017) – Defending track champ David Holbrook scored his first win of the year in the 25-lap “358” sprint car feature at Trail-Way Speedway. And, according to him, it was all car.

“The crew gave me one helluva race car tonight,” said Holbrook upon exiting the Mike Parris-owned Turner Stone Casino and Resort/Baird Heating and Cooling/SCC Trucking #77 in victory lane, “A monkey could have driven this thing. It could run anywhere. It was really hooked up.”

Holbrook’s final margin of victory over 12th starting and hard charger Steve Owings was exactly one second.

“Whenever Steve’s back there, you have to be up on the wheel,” said Holbrook, “We have a new Don Ott motor in this car. Let’s do this again!”

Polesitter Brody Treaster led the first four laps from the pole before fifth-starting Holbrook drove around him in turn four of lap five. Holbrook led the rest of the way, but Owings took the runner-up spot from Joe Trone, Jr. on lap seven. Owings pulled onto Holbrook’s back bumper following a tenth-lap caution for Treaster, but was unable to catch Holbrook over the final 15 laps.

It was a long night for Dwight Leppo, who spun and collected Zach Euculano and Isaac Sneeringer on turn two of lap four, and then was uninjured in a violent turn one flip on lap six.

Third through fifth were Trone, Mike Bittinger, and J.B. Cunningham.

Heats for the 12 ‘358” sprint cars were won by Owings and Holbrook.

Mike Rutherford was the winner of the Third Annual Gary Kiefert Memorial for the Mason-Dixon 270cc micro-sprints. The event was also the second and final race of the Path Valley/Trail-Way micro-sprint Shootout Series, which was won by Brian Marriott for third-place finishes in both events.

Crossing second behind Rutherford was Levi Peck, with hard-charger Cory Myers (who started 16th) and Jim Young completing the top five.

Qualifiers for the 30 micros were won by Quinn Roberts, Joe Long, Jr., and Marriott, with Chad Myers winning the consolation event.

Outside polesitter Michael Goodwin led all 20-laps of a wild street stock feature, holding off the ongoing challenges of Brian Walls over the latter stages of an event which saw only four cars running at the end.

Walls spun on an 18th-lap restart, but reclaimed the runner-up spot from Dalton Myers on the final lap.

Heats for the 12 street stocks were won by Jeremy Stremmel and Mike Walls.

Defending track champ Justin Wagaman claimed the win in the 15-lap limited stock feature. Charles Millender led the first four laps from the pole before Wagaman took the lead for good on lap five. Millender ran into steering issues a few laps later and dropped from the field.

Roy Denike crossed a distant second 4.22 seconds behind the winner, followed by Travis Brown, 15th-starting Matt Worley, and 14th-starting Shawn Snell. Only nine of the 20 limited stocks finished the race.

Heats were won by Jason Chronister and Terry Hartlaub, both of which dropped from the feature field.

Next Friday, June 16, 2017, Trail-Way Speedway will be back in action with the 358 Sprints, Central PA Legends, Street Stocks and Limited Stocks. Trail-Way will also feature the first of two scheduled, “Kids Race Car Rides.” Gates open at 5:30 p.m. and racing begins at 7:45 p.m.

THURSDAY, JUNE 8, 2017 SUSQUEHANNA SPEEDWAY RACE RESULTS

GREG HODNETT RETURNS TO SUSQUEHANNA VICTORY LANE

Scott Ellerman Wins PASS / IMCA Sprints By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA…6/8/17

To say that Greg Hodnett and the Mike Heffner owned sprint car are having an off season, would be the understatement of the year.

The area’s winningest driver over the past three seasons has struggled to find speed all season long in Central Pennsylvania but Hodnett appeared to have found a little of that speed Thursday night as he took the checkered flag in the 30-lap BAPS Auto Paints and Supplies 410 Sprint car feature at Susquehanna Speedway on www.sprintcarunlimited.com night.

The Spring Grove racer was the fourth and final leader in the thrilling feature as he became the third different winner in as many BAPS 410 Sprint Series events this season at the York Haven oval.

Hodnett, who had led laps 18 through 21 before giving way to Danny Dietrich, was able to get back around Dietrich on the 26th lap and was able to keep Dietrich at bay over the final laps to pick up his first win since opening night at Williams Grove back in mid-March. The win was worth $3,200 to Hodnett and the Lelands.com, Trone Outdoor, Eagle Steel team.

“We had a decent run kind of off this right rear and had a decent run down the front straightaway and just enough to stay close enough down the back straightaway to put us into position to drive under him in four,” Hodnett said about his race-winning pass. “We had gotten the lead early and got by just because I was trying to his the bottom perfect and was slowing down too much and he got momentum and got back by us. But when we got the lead back, obviously I didn’t want to make the same mistake and I stayed on top of it a little harder and made sure I ran a little harder to let him not get the momentum.”

Ryan Taylor grabbed the early lead as second-row starters Dietrich and Hodnett took the next two spots. Hodnett ran third until lap 11 when he drove by Dietrich to take the second spot and tracked down Taylor.

Hodnett took the top spot from Taylor coming out of turn four to lead lap 18 just as the caution flew.

Dietrich shot by Taylor on the restart and then was able to drive around Hodnett off the second corner to lead the 22nd lap but Hodnett was able to use a lap 25 to his advantage and score the win after his lap 26 pass.

Dietrich rode home in the runner-up spot with eighth starter Lance Dewease third followed by Taylor and 12th starting Lucas Wolfe.

Rounding out the top ten finishers were Brock Zearfoss, Brian Montieth,Cory Haas, Anthony Macri and Eric Riggins, Jr.

Kyle Reinhardt and Dietrich were heat winners for the 20 BAPS 410 Sprints pitside.

Scott Ellerman became the fourth different winner in as many races this year as he claimed the win in the 20-lap Freedmont® Mortgage Lending PASS /IMCA 305 Sprint car main.

Ellerman started fifth but didn’t assume command until lap 13 when he drove by leader Colby Dice and was able to maintain the top spot for the win.

Ken Duke, Jr. led the first two laps before Dice took over and led until lap 12.

Tyler Reeser spun on the fifth lap but kept going and finished second in the 20-lap feature with Dice, 10th starting Kyle Craker and Darren Miller the top five finishers.

Sixth through tenth were Dae Brown, Jaremi Hanson, Cale Reigle, Duke and John Haegele.

Cale Reigle, Billy Ney and Kyle Craker won heat races for the 28 PASS 305 Sprints. The consolation was won by Kyle Ganoe, whose car went up in smoke just after taking the checkered flag, forcing him to scratch from the feature.

The next BAPS 410 Sprint Series event will be on Sunday, July 20th when the Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman share the racing card.

Susquehanna Speedway returns to action this Saturday, June 10, with the FK Rod Ends Carl Billet Memorial for the Bernheisel Race Cars 358 Late Models. The Billet Memorial will pay $1,500 to win for the 30-lap event. The Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman, Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stocks and Superior Homes Extreme Stocks fill out the racing program. Race time is 7PM.

THE EASTERN STORM OPENS AT GRANDVIEW TUESDAY NIGHT, JUNE 13

LOCAL OWNER ASSISTS THREE TEAMS WITH RUN IN 11TH ANNUAL EASTERN STORM USAC SWING

EXPECTED USAC EASTERN STORM DRIVER ENTRY LIST BELOW

The Amsoil USAC Eastern Storm will bring the always exciting non-wing sprint cars to Pennsylvania and it all gets underway on Tuesday night, June 13 at the Grandview Speedway. The Eastern Storm will continue on Wednesday night, June 14 at the Lincoln Speedway, Thursday night, June 15 at Williams Grove then close out the weekend on Saturday night, June 17 at Port Royal and Sunday night, June 18 at the Susquehanna Speedway. This will mark the eleventh annual swing of USAC here in the east.

One local car owner has been a behind the scene advocate of non-wing racing and to have it return to the east. Reading, PA businessman Gene Franckowiak is so committed to the success of the Eastern Storm, he is involved with at least three teams that will be racing in the Amsoil USAC non-wing sprint events kicking off Tuesday night at Grandview. On race night, look for Franckowiak to be somewhere around the sprint cars of Shane Golobic, Thomas (T-Mez) Meseraull and Kyle Moody, as he has some involvement with each car.

Gene Franckowiak’s ties go back to the Reading Fairgrounds, working as a crew member in 1970 and he drove a sprint car for the first time in 1974. Very few know that Gene was a driver, until he suffered serious injuries in a crash at Reading in 1976. Gene drove a few more years before making a transition to being a car owner. He seemed to enjoy the car owner role as he loved working on cars, the friendships, traveling and the competition that comes out of racing.

If you know Gene, he is never short on words and always has strong opinions, especially when it comes to capping the cost of sprint car racing. “I have a love of sprint car racing and fought hard over the years to keep costs down and the racing competitive for everyone, not just the fortunate few”, said Franckowiak.

“I was fortunate to have some great mentors in this sport like Lee Kunzman, Steve Chassey, Gary Bettenhausen, Rich Leavell, Larry Dickson, among others”. Franckowiak added, “I can honestly say that I cherish each and every friendship I have made past and present in my association with USAC and look forward to the Eastern Storm”.

Gene is known today for having very good equipment, but that was not always the case, in fact, his nickname at one time was “Junkyard Gene”.

“I was not always in a position to have the best and I struggled for many years using other people’s cast off parts”. Franckowiak continued, “I was forced to leave the sport because of high costs and I vowed to work really hard in my career to make sure that doesn’t happen to more people”. Gene is a believer that non-wing sprint car racing is an affordable way to go racing.

Ironically, it was Gene Franckowiak who brought together USAC Race Director Greg Staab and local special events promoter Bob Miller in 2005. Miller, who also has ties back to the Reading Fairgrounds and had a passion to bring USAC back to the east. In 2007, the Eastern Storm invaded Grandview Speedway and introduced the return of USAC to Berks County, the first event since 1979 at Reading.

Looking to the Eastern Storm 2017, Gene is fielding a car for California driver Shane Golobic that will be maintained by Dave and Mike Ely. Gene, along with Mike Heffner and mechanic Sean Michael will have a car for T-Mez, Thomas Meseraull also a California resident. Gene is also helping local Pennsylvania driver Kyle Moody in his efforts in the Eastern Storm.

The Amsoil USAC Non-wing Sprints Eastern Storm will open at the Grandview Speedway on Tuesday, June 13. This will also mark the opening event of the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series presented by Pioneer Pole Buildings. If you have never seen a non-wing 410 sprint car race (especially at Grandview Speedway) this is the show to see.

The Tuesday, June 13 event at Grandview Speedway will get underway at 7:30 PM. Joining the USAC non-wing sprints on the program will be the 358 Modifieds chasing a $3,000 payday for the 30 lap run. Craig VonDohren, Duane Howard, Jeff Strunk, Ryan Godown, Billy Pauch Jr., Ryan Watt and Rick Laubach are some of the expected modified entries. Qualifying will take place for both divisions.

The Amsoil Eastern Storm continues.

It’s off to Abbottstown, PA for a stop at the Lincoln Speedway, an Eastern Storm staple since 2010 bringing the series into night two on Wednesday, June 14. The 358 Sprints will be part of this double header event that will carry a 7:30 PM starting time with gates opening at 5 PM.

Other USAC entries to expect include Fort Branch, Indiana’s Chase Stockon, Kokomo, IN driver Shane Cottle, Sikeston, MO favorite Hunter Schuerenberg, USAC’s Triple Crown champion Dave Darland of Lincoln, IN and Landon Simon of Tipp City Ohio. I’m sure we all remember the 2016 Grandview performance by Mooresville, North Carolina’s driver Jarett Andretti, almost taking the win. Tyler Courtney of Indianapolis, IN, and Greenfield, IN driver C.J. Leary are hoping to break through for an Eastern Storm taste of victory.

On the local scene, Danny Dietrich a 410 sprint car feature winner at Grandview and the winner of the 2016 National Open at Williams Grove, plans to make his initial foray into USAC for Eastern Storm on the “hill” at Grandview. Defending ARDC Midget champion and 2016 Chili Bowl Midget Nationals preliminary feature winner Alex Bright, is a regular in USAC’s midget division, and will try his hand for the first time in a USAC Sprint Car.

PRS 2017 – 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

Port Royal Sprint Cars To Race For $4,000 To Win Saturday In Honor Of Swarmer

6/7/17

Port Royal – In honor of Saturday night’s Port Royal Speedway Founder’s Award posthumous honoree, the late Richard “Dick” “Pete” Swarmer of Lewistown, various local businesses have chipped in to raise the 410-sprint car purse to the tune of $1,500.

In honor of the late, great Swarmer, who passed away in 2000, Saturday’s sprint cars will now race for a total purse worth nearly $17,000 including $4,000 to win the 25-lap main event.

Swarmer was one of the two most identifiable names on the Port Royal Penn Central racing circuit during its formative years in the 1950s and 1960s, the other being Eddie McCardle.

Swarmer retired from the sport in 1975 but not before amassing a huge fan following and recording four sprint car track title and 45 career oval wins in the division along with a pair of late model track titles and 15 late model victories.

Along with the Weikert’s Livestock 410 sprints, also on the 7 pm racing card is the Creasy Signs 305 sprints and the Gray’s Auto and Towing econo late models.

In other speedway news, the Juniata Junction xtreme stocks have been added to a late June program.

The xtreme stocks have been added to the Saturday, June 24.

The event also includes the 410 sprints, super late models and the 305 sprint cars.

Stay up to date with all the latest Port Royal news and information by visiting the oval’s official website at www.portroyalspeedway.com or by following the track on Facebook or Twitter.

 

 

AMSOIL USAC NON-WING SPRINTS HEADING EAST ON NAPA AUTO PARTS NIGHT. . . .

BRADY BACON, ROBERT BALL0U, CHAD BOESPFLUG HEADLINE ENTRIES FOR OPENER AT GRANDVIEW

The Amsoil USAC Non-wing Sprints Eastern Storm is heading east with the opening set for the Grandview Speedway on Tuesday, June 13. This will also mark the opening event of the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series presented by Pioneer Pole Buildings. If you have never seen a non-wing 410 sprint car race (especially at Grandview Speedway) this is the show to see.

From wheelies to roster-tails, a little wheel banging and always a bounce or two off the outside boiler-plate, USAC non-wing sprint car racing on the “hill” at Grandview Speedway is always a thrill, especially with talent like Brady Bacon from Broken Arrow, OK, Robert Ballou from Rocklin, CA and Chad Boespflug from Handford, CA. Plus a long list of other invaders and local talent chasing the win in the 40 lap $6,000 to win Jesse Hockett Classic.

The Tuesday, June 13 event at Grandview Speedway will get underway at 7:30 PM. Joining the USAC non-wing sprints on the program will be the 358 Modifieds chasing a $3,000 payday for the 30 lap run. Qualifying will take place for both divisions.

Brady Bacon has one career win on the Amsoil Eastern Storm and in 2014 he was the Eastern Storm Champion. It was the same year that Bacon won his first USAC Sprint Car National Championship, repeating again in 2016. Over the 2016 season, Bacon delivered twenty-two top-five finishes and 36 top ten finishes in forty-one starts. He also qualified for the pole at the “Hoosier Hundred” at the Indiana State Fairgrounds in May and finished fourth in this prestigious event. Bacon is the only driver to set fast time in all three USAC national series. And another point, Brady Bacon loves racing at Grandview.

Another favorite of the Eastern Storm is Robert Ballou. To date, he has three career Eastern Storm victories all coming in 2015 with wins at New Egypt, Port Royal and the Susquehanna Speedway. In 2016, Ballou won four USAC National Sprint features at Ocala, Fl, Terre Haute, IN, Kansas City, KS and Putnamville, IN on his way to an eight place finish in the standings. His 2016 season was cut short due to injuries suffered in a sprint car crash in Calistoga, CA in September. Ballou owns twenty-six USAC victories and is nicknamed “The Madman”, after winning in just his second start after returning from the injury, that win coming at the Eldora Speedway in May of 2017.

Last, but certainly not least is Chad Boespflug, a native of California. He won the USAC show at New Egypt in 2016 and was USAC’s Most Improved Driver in 2016 after a break out year in the USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship. Chad enjoyed a big two day weekend at Badlands Motor Speedway in Brandon, South Dakota that netted him a grand total of $60,000! He was first among all drivers, leading a total of 145 laps over the season. Boespflug is known in the racing circles as the “Hanford Hornet”, and he’ll be the buzz when he enters the pits at Grandview on Tuesday night, June 13.

Advance tickets for the Grandview USAC/358 Modified events are available by calling 443 513 4456. Please leave your name, phone number and the number of tickets you need. You may pay for and pick-up your tickets on race night at the Grandview Speedway WILL CALL window after 4 PM.

The Eastern Storm continues at Williams Grove on Thursday night, June 15 followed by a stop at the Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night, June 17. The venerable Susquehanna Speedway has taken a new look over the past couple of years with upgrades continually being made to the facility, but for the fifth consecutive year, remains in its familiar spot as the host of the series-ender on Sunday night, June 18.

Other USAC entries to expect include Fort Branch, Indiana’s Chase Stockon, Kokomo, IN driver Shane Cottle, Sikeston, MO favorite Hunter Schuerenberg, USAC’s Triple Crown champion Dave Darland of Lincoln, IN and Landon Simon of Tipp City Ohio.

SMITH WINS THIRD URC 360 SPRINT CAR KRAMER CUP; LAWTON DRIVES TO FIRST CAREER PRO STOCK VICTORY; YODER TAKES CHECKERS IN 355 ECONO LATE MODELS

SELINSGROVE, PA. – Saturday night marked the fourth annual running of the Kramer Cup at Selinsgrove Speedway. The Kramer Cup, a literal pink cup presented to the winner each year, went home with Sunbury’s Mark Smith for the third time out of the four tribute races in memory of sprint car driver Kramer Williamson.

Williamson was the 2008 Knoxville Sprint Car Hall of Fame driver Kramer who lost his life in a racing accident in 2013. He is a former track champion a Selinsgrove Speedway and had unmeasured success and impact on central PA Sprint Car racing.

Timed hot laps set heat races with inversions. When everything was said and done Smith was on the pole of the 30-lap main event in search of Kramer Cup number three. Derek Locke was the first challenger for Smith, and Locke was the only driver other than Smith to see the daylight of the race lead in the early laps. Locke took advantage of a restart and led the field into turn one before his car turned sideways and Smith went back into the lead. Cody Keller took advantage of the sideways Locke to take second.

On lap 11 the race leader was into traffic, but Keller could not make up ground as Smith sliced his way through the back of the field. A caution flag flew at half way that put Keller aside of the Smith for the double file restart with new challenger Greg Hodnett joining the front duo. Derek Locke climbed back into the race for second with Keller and Hodnett while Smith started to drift away. Keller’s strong run came to an end when he lost his right rear tire on lap 18. Hodnett was the challenger to Smith on the restart before Selinsgrove point leader Davie Franek moved into second. Franek closed on Smith initially after taking the spot, but never got close enough to challenge Smith for the win.

Smith crossed the line ahead of Franek, Hodnett, Locke, and Jason Shultz, who started 19th. Robbie Stillwagon, 2015 winner of the event, Josh Weller, Chad Layton, Chris Coyle, and Mallie Shuster were the top ten finishers. Heat races were won by Franek, Weller, and Nate Snyder. Shultz won the B-Main.

Kramer Williamson’s daughter, Felecia Williamson, paced the field in the “Pink Panther” number 73 before the feature event. The Williamson family also joined Mark Smith in victory lane with the 73 at the conclusion of the feature race. The beautiful Kramer Cup was custom finished by Keller’s Auto Body in Selinsgrove.

Last lap heroics were written all over the first ever Econo Late Model feature at Selinsgrove Speedway on Saturday night. Shaun Miller led the whole feature event with Andrew Yoder in chase. Miller ran the middle of the track, while Yoder peddled around the bottom of the race track. Yoder kept constant pressure on Miller the whole race.

On lap 12 the front runner began to catch lap traffic and soon Tim Fedder had joined the duo at the front. Miller’s line around the outside allowed him to move past the traffic until the white flag was given. Miller tried to pass a lap car around the outside and although he completed the pass, it was not before Yoder turned down across the speedway to pull even with the leader.

As they drove under the white flag Yoder began to inch ahead securing the race leader in turn two. Yoder made a bold move on the back stretch and into turn three splitting some laps cars leaving Miller and Fedder behind on his way to the win. The feature ran green to checkered. Yoder, Fedder, and Miller led Todd Snook and Tim Krape across the line. Sixth through tenth finishing positions went to Kenny Yoder, Ander Shoop, Troy Miller, Jared Fulkroad, and Chase Bowsman. Miller and Yoder won heat races.

There is an old saying that if you continue to put yourself in good spots, good things will happen. That was the case for the A&A Auto Store Pro Stock winner. Shawn Lawton has been in contention all season long and finally overcame the challenges to pick up his first win on Saturday night. Lawton dominated the feature event running through mostly unchallenged.

AJ Hoffman and Dustin Snook waged a tight battle for second while Lawton drove away. Hoffman won out on that battle to finish in the runner up spot.

It was Lawton’s first career Selinsgrove Speedway win. Hoffman, Snook, Jake Buck, and AJ Stroup were the top five finishers. John Fowler, Brandon Moser, Bill Conrad, Nate Stroup, and Nick Gentile made up the top ten finishers in the feature event.

Lawton and Hoffman were heat race winners.

Selinsgrove Speedway returns to racing action at 7 p.m. Saturday, June 10, hosting the finale to the Appalachian Mountain Late Model Speedweek Series plus 360 sprint cars and pro stocks. Track gates will open at 5 p.m. The 40-lap super late model main event will pay $4,000 to win.

Wolfe Wires For Second In A Row In Port Sprints, Rine Wins Late Model 4K Loot

6/3/17

Port Royal – Lucas Wolfe of Mechanicsburg wired the field to record his second Port Royal Speedway sprint car win in six days on Saturday night, taking $3,200 for the victory.

The win was Wolfe’s second in as many days after having also won on Friday night at Williams Grove Speeedway and accounting for his win last Monday at Port Royal in the Bob Weikert Memorial, the win at Williams Grove and again at Port Royal on Saturday, Wolfe pushed his six-day accumulated total earnings to $17,000 in 85 total feature laps.

In the 40-lap super late model speedweek main, Jeff Rine of Danville notched the victory after overpowering a 39-car field for the $4,000 victory.

To close out the night, Bill Powell claimed the xtreme stock main event.

Wolfe started second in the 410 sprint car main and was trailed by polesitter Blane Heimbach early as he entered the backmarkers on the eighth lap.

Setting a blistering pace around the big half-mile, Wolfe was annihilating the field, a bit more than a half lap ahead of second place Brock Zearfoss on lap 12 when the only caution flag of the race unfurled.

Prior to the caution, Wolfe had a whopping 7.1 second lead over Zearfoss.

Zearfoss took second from Heimbach on the 10th tour but hadn’t been able to close on Wolfe at all.

The restart saw eighth starter Danny Dietrich up to fourth and Dietrich continued his march forward, taking third on the restart and second from a rebounding Heimbach with nine laps to go.

Wolfe didn’t check out nearly as much during the final stages as Dietrich was at least able to keep him in sight, finishing 3.212 seconds behind at the finish.

A fantastic run from the 14th starting spot for Dylan Cisney excited the fans as the Port Royal driver mustered up to third before the checkers could fall.

Zearfoss was fourth followed by Doug Esh.

Sixth through 10th went to Mike Wagner, Heimbach, TJ Stutts, Rick Lafferty and Joey Hershey.

With the finish, Cisney took a narrow lead in the season point standings over Esh.

Heats went to Stutts and Dietrich.

Rine took the lead from Coleby Frye with a two-car pass on the 14th lap of the super late model feature.

Polesitter Coleby Frye took the lead when the feature bean over Kyle Hardy with fourth starter Rine running third on the first lap.

Hardy made a brief charge for the lead on the ninth tour, getting around for the top spot in the middle of the fourth corner before Frye used his momentum to reclaim the lead as the pair crossed the stripe.

On the 12th tour, Frye brushed the outside wall but stayed under power with the lead and by that time, in heavy traffic, Rine was knocking on Hardy’s door for second.

Rine briefly got second on the 13th tour only to see Hardy race back in front but as both Frye and Hardy got jammed up in traffic trying to pick their way through, Rine stuck his No. 2J low through the third and fourth turns and made a two-car pass of both drivers to net control with 26 laps to go.

The leader saw a 1.3 second lead erased on the 22nd lap with Jason Covert now up to third and with the track cleared, Rine jetted away on the restart leaving everyone else to battle for the top five.

Seventh starter Mason Zeigler blasted from fourth to second for a short time with 11 laps to go only to find Covert, Frye and Kenny Pettyjohn battling him for the spot.

Zeigler was in a solid third with 10 laps to go and although he threw everything he had at Covert for second he couldn’t quite take the spot.

Covert finished 6.139 seconds behind at the finish followed by Zeigler, Pettyjohn and Frye.

Sixth through 10th went to Dan Stone, Dylan Yoder, Mike Lupfer, Rance Garlock and Andy Haus.

Heats went to Frye, Hardy, Zeigler and Garlock.

Twin consolations went to Scott Flickinger and Haus with Frye setting fast time with a lap of 19.229 seconds.

Rine likened the victory in the speedweek main equal to any of his biggest wins at any track, taking note of the quality field in attendance.

Bill Powell took the win in the 15-lap xtreme stock main over Will Brunson, Ryan Zook, Pete Leister and Walt Peters.

Powell started seventh in the field and took the lead on the fifth lap.

It was Powell’s 25th career win in the division.

ANTHONY MACRI RACES TO FIRST CAREER WIN IN THRILLING 410 SPRINT CAR FEATURE AT LINCOLN;

Dwight Leppo, Shaun Jones score second career Lincoln wins in 358 sprints, 358 late models

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA – June 3, 2017 – A childhood dream came true for 17-year-old Anthony Macri at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

And the Dillsburg youngster’s first win couldn’t have been more exciting.

In a thriller that saw five lead changes between front row starters Macri and Glenndon Forsythe, Marci reclaimed the lead for the third time and final time on lap 15.

“To be honest with you, when Forsythe got by me, I thought that was pretty much the end, said Macri after doing a wing dance on his Fastenal/Macri Concrete #39 in victory lane, “But Moon Byers taught me one thing, and that’s to be patient and things will come back to you. And that’s pretty much what happened.”

When asked about putting his first career sprint car win into words, Macri said “I can’t explain it. I never thought this day would come. Sitting up in the stands as a little kid, I never thought this would have happened, but here we are.”

“To be honest with you, at the first caution, I thought there were more than six laps,” said Macri, “It felt like the longest race of my life. When he got by me, I can’t really say what I was thinking.”

That caution, the first of two during the event, involved Jeff Rohrbaugh, Gerard McIntyre, Jr., and defending track champ Alan Krimes, who tangled in turn number one. Krimes was the only driver able to continue, as McIntyre ended up on top of Rohrbaugh’s car. The only other caution came out when Robbie Kendall spun in turn four of lap 18.

Macri led the first eight laps before Forsythe drove by on the backstretch of lap nine. Macri returned the favor, and the two swapped the lead on consecutive laps through lap 15.

Macri withstood additional challenges from Forsythe over the next several laps, but drove away to a 2.31-second win over Jim Siegel, who caught Forsythe for the runner-up spot with three laps to go. Also getting around Forsythe were Billy Dietrich, 11th-starting Brian Montieth, and Cory Haas, who crossed third through fifth.

Forsythe settled for sixth, followed by Freddie and Brandon Rahmer, Scott Fisher, and Chad Trout, who started 19th.

Heats for the 22 “410” Sprints were won by Krimes and the Rahmers.

New Oxford’s Dwight Leppo led every a lap of a wild 20-lap “358” sprint car feature to score his second career Lincoln win. Though he was never passed for the lead, there was torrid racing in behind, with Brent Shearer and Trey Hiver finishing second and third. Doug Hammaker and Kevin Nouse rounded out the top five.

Sixth through tenth were Troy Wagaman, Jr., 14th-starting Ashley Cappetta, Cody Fletcher, Phil Walter, and Steve Wilbur.

Heats for the 32 “358” Sprints were won by Leppo, Nouse, Hammaker, and Adrian Shaffer, with Ryan Quackenbush winning the consolation.

Shaun Jones led every lap from the pole in the 20-lap “358” Precise Racing Products series late model feature, surviving a late-race scare from Randy Christine, Jr. after getting caught behind heavy lapped traffic racing for position over the final three laps. It was Jones’ second career Lincoln win.

Christine traded second place with Bobby Beard in the early stages of the race and crossed in the runner-up spot 1.10 seconds behind Jones. Travis Mease, Beard, and Derick Quade rounded out the top five.

Heats for the 19 “358” Late Models were won by Quade and Christine.

Next Saturday night, June 10th, it will be the annual NATIONAL FALLEN FIREFIGHTERS NIGHT IN MEMORY OF BRANDON LITTLE along with KIDS NIGHT featuring the 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints, and Central PA Legends. Gates open at 5:00 PM, with racing action getting underway at 7:30 PM.

EASTERN STORM HEADING TO PENNSYLVANIA IN 11TH ANNUAL AMSOIL USAC NON-WING SPRINT TOUR

Here they come. The USAC Amsoil Non-Wing sprint cars are heading east for the eleventh annual Eastern Storm that will kick off at the Grandview Speedway on Tuesday night, June 13 with the 40 lap $6,000 to win Jesse Hockett Classic. This event is part of the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series. These non-win heroes of the United States Auto Club invade the state of Pennsylvania for a highly-anticipated week of open-wheel dirt-track racing across the Keystone State.

Grandview Speedway and the Thunder on the Hill Racing Series is the only track to have been a part of every Eastern Storm since its debut in 2007. The wildly competitive and always exciting Grandview 1/3-mile track opens the five-race series on Tuesday, June 13 in a double header program with the NASCAR 358 Modifieds. PA Posse hot shoe Danny “Double D” Dietrich will attempt to chase down his first ever USAC non-wing sprint car victory. Time trials will get underway at 7:30 PM.

Over the past winter, the Grandview Speedway took on a new surface and so far this season, the feedback is that the track is heavy right through the feature and extremely fast. In five events, there has been five different feature winners in the weekly 358 Modified division. The layout of the track on the “hill” always provides wheelies, some roster-tails a little wheel banging and you just can’t help but to see someone glaze the often non-forgiving outside boiler-plate wall. Non-wing sprints at Grandview is second to none.

Advance tickets for the Grandview USAC/358 Modified events are available by calling 443 513 4456. Please leave your name, phone number and the number of tickets you need. You may pay for and pick-up your tickets on race night at the Grandview Speedway WILL CALL window after 4 PM. Advance ticket holders may enter the grandstand at 4:30 PM with General Admission tickets going on sale at 5 PM.

It’s off to Abbottstown, PA for a stop at the Lincoln Speedway, an Eastern Storm staple since 2010, bringing the series into night two on Wednesday, June 14. The 358 Sprints will be part of this double header event that will carry a 7:30 PM starting time.

The Eastern Storm continues at Williams Grove on Thursday night, June 15 followed by a stop at the Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night, June 17. The venerable Susquehanna Speedway has taken a new look over the past couple of years with upgrades continually being made to the facility, but for the fifth consecutive year, remains in its familiar spot as the host of the series-ender on Sunday night, June 18.

Thirty-four Eastern Storm events have been contested since the series’ inception in 2007 when Bob Miller reached out to the USAC organization to entice them to travel back east. “Growing up at the Reading Fairgrounds, the USAC events were always a key show at the famed half-mile oval”. Miller continued, “I’ve seen some of the all-time greats in auto racing compete with USAC and the ability to re-kindle the return of USAC to Berks County is something I am very proud to be a part of”.

Levi Jones and Bryan Clauson are tied atop the leaderboard as winningest drivers in the series with six wins apiece. Clauson was the champion in 2016 after three stirring performances at Grandview, Lincoln and Port Royal in which he took the lead late in the going in each.

Chris Windom and Robert Ballou are the active drivers with the most Eastern Storm wins at three each. Windom, of Canton, Illinois won his first all the way back in 2010 at Big Diamond Speedway in Minersville, PA and his most recent in the last season’s finale at Susquehanna. Ballou, of Rocklin, California, earned all three of his Eastern Storm victories in one magical weekend back in 2015, when he ran away with the series title.

USAC entries to expect include Hanford, CA driver Chad Boespflug, Fort Branch, Indiana’s Chase Stockon, Kokomo, IN driver Shane Cottle, Sikeston, MO favorite Hunter Schuerenberg, USAC’s Triple Crown champion Dave Darland of Lincoln, IN and Landon Simon of Tipp City Ohio. I’m sure we all remember the 2016 Grandview performance by Mooresville, North Carolina’s driver Jarett Andretti, almost taking the win. Tyler Courtney of Indianapolis, IN, and Greenfield, IN driver C.J. Leary are hoping to break through for an Eastern Storm taste of victory.

On the local scene, Danny Dietrich a 410 sprint car feature winner at Grandview and the winner of the 2016 National Open at Williams Grove, plans to make his initial foray into USAC for Eastern Storm on the “hill” at Grandview. Defending ARDC Midget champion and 2016 Chili Bowl Midget Nationals preliminary feature winner Alex Bright, is a regular in USAC’s midget division, and will try his hand for the first time in a USAC Sprint Car.

Eastern Storm has been a harbinger of good fortune when it comes to its champions’ future success. In seven of its ten years of existence, the champion of Eastern Storm has gone on to win the USAC National Sprint Car title in the same season: Levi Jones (2007, 2010 & 2011), Bryan Clauson (2012 & 2013), Brady Bacon (2014) and Robert Ballou (2015).

Additional Eastern Storm champs include Cole Whitt (2008 & 2009) and Clauson (2016), who became the second three-time titlist alongside Jones just one year ago.

Lucas Wolfe Gets First Of Year In Williams Grove Sprints, Mark Smith Wins URC

6/2/17

Mechanicsburg – Lucas Wolfe of Mechanicsburg scored his first win of the season at Williams Grove Speedway in the 410-sprint car feature on Friday night, taking home $3,800 for his victory.

In the 25-lap URC Sprint main, Mark Smith scored the victory worth $2,000, his second of the year on the URC circuit.

Wolfe would drive to his 16th career win at Williams Grove from the fifth starting spot in the 25-lap sprint car main.

He was fourth behind leader Rodney Westhafer on the first lap with Brandon Rahmer and TJ Stutts also ahead of him filling the top spots.

Wolfe waged a spirited battle with Stutts for second, exchanging the spot a few times during the early going before settling in, regrouping and swooping by for the position with 10 laps recorded.

Once around Stutts, Wolfe made quick work of Rahmer to take second a lap later before tracking down Westhafer.

Another swoop netted Wolfe the lead in the third and fourth corners as he raced to the completion of lap 15.

Last week’s winner, Danny Dietrich of Gettysburg came alive with 12 laps to go and as Wolfe was taking control, Dietrich raced into third.

Moments later, Dietrich took second from Westhafer to begin a pursuit of Wolfe for his second win in a row.

Wolfe saw a 1.010 second lead over Dietrich erased with three laps to go when the yellow flag unfurled for debris on the track.

Dietrich kept Wolfe close on the restart but Wolfe was able to sneak away just far enough to prevent a last lap effort by Dietrich to steal the win, taking the checkers by .684 seconds.

Dietrich settled for second followed by 10th starter Freddie Rahmer, Stutts and 11th starter Lance Dewease.

Sixth through 10th went to Brian Montieth, Westhafer, Greg Hodnett, Anthony Macri and Mark Smith.

Heats went to Freddie Rahmer, Dewease and Macri.

Davie Franek started on the pole of the URC Sprint main with Curt Michael to his outside and Franek took the lead when action began.

Mark Smith started third in the field and got around Michael for second the first time on the eighth tour but Michael proved hard to shake and again took the spot back moments later.

Smith was finally able to dust off Michael with 11 laps away as the front runners all worked traffic and in fact, leader Franek was close enough to Smith after he got to second that it took only another lap for him to catch and pass him for control.

Once at the helm Smith got away from the field only to see his winning pace slowed with five to go when the caution flag appeared.

A lap later, a slow roll over by Davey Sammons in the second turn brought out the red flag.

Greg Hodnett got around Chad Layton for third on the restart but another restart a lap later with three to go proved to change nothing at the front with Smith taking the win by 2.214 seconds over Franek and Hodnett.

Layton was fourth followed by Michael.

Sixth through 10th went to Lucas Wolfe, Chuck Hebing, Derek Locke, Jason Shultz and Josh Weller.

Heats went to Eric Tomecek, Ed Aiken, Curt Michael and Greg Hodnett with Kevin Nagy taking the consolation.

NAPA AUTO PARTS THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES

LEVAN Machine & Truck Equipment bring

“SMOKE ON THE HILL” TO GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY;

TONY STEWART & RICO ABREU JOIN ALL STAR SPRINTS IN THUNDER SHOW THURSDAY, AUGUST 17

BECHTELSVILLE, PA (June 1, 2017) – Two of the country’s most popular drivers head towards ‘The Hill’ in a special event of epic proportions.

When the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series heads to Grandview Speedway on Thursday, August 17, three-time NASCAR Cup Champion Tony Stewart and two-time Chili Bowl Nationals champion, Rico Abreu, will strap into a 410 sprint car and compete with the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions.

Brought to you by Levan Machine & Truck Equipment, you’ll find “Smoke on the Hill” and Rico Abreu when the green flag falls for the third Annual Thunder Cup -- a 30 lap, $5,000 to win 410 sprint car special event.

Levan Machine & Truck Equipment located in Fleetwood, PA (just outside of Reading, PA) is part of the Thunder on the Hill family of sponsors. Levan Machine & Truck Equipment is a full-service machine shop and custom truck up-fitting center for Central Pennsylvania. Levan also provides a full line of truck bodies, van interiors, and utility and service bodies.

The Levan Machine & Truck Equipment visit will mark Tony Stewart’s first in action racing appearance at the Grandview Speedway located about 50 miles south of NASCAR mainstay, Pocono Raceway.

"Grandview was one of the first events I added to my schedule this year,” Tony Stewart explained. “After attending the race last year as a spectator and owner of the All Stars, I knew I had to participate in the race this year. As a sprint car fan, it is one of the most exciting tracks to watch a sprint car race. I cannot wait to get my [No.] 14 car unloaded on the Hill. The competition will be nothing short of spectacular. I hope we can have a good night and put ourselves in a position to compete for the win.”

Abreu, one of the most exciting and most popular Sprint Car drivers in the country is anxious to get to the Berks County dirt track.

“I’m really excited to get to Grandview, I've heard a lot of great things about the track,” Abreu stated. “I've got a lot of fans in Pennsylvania and I don't get to race that far east too much, but definitely look forward to that night with the All Stars and all the tough Pennsylvania cars. It's always fun going to new tracks especially in an area known for some of the best sprint car drivers in the country."

Stewart and Abreu join more than 15 full-time Arctic Cat All Stars competitors, but while the All Stars bring an elite group of drivers, a battalion of Central Pennsylvania’s top stars are prepared to defend their home turf – and when the greatest Sprint Car drivers in the world do battle it is sure to be unpredictable, especially “on the hill”.

Expected top guns include nine-time Grandview 410 Sprint Car winner and six-time Thunder on the Hill Champion, Greg Hodnett; along with past Thunder Cup winner Danny Dietrich, Lucas Wolfe, Freddie Rahmer, Alan Krimes, Brandon Rahmer. While series regulars include Chad Kemenah, Caleb Armstrong, Ryan Smith, Max Stambaugh, T.J. Michael and Caleb Helms.

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

Lucas Wolfe Wins 10K In Port Royal Bob Weikert Memorial, Hodnett Gets URCs

Dewease & Michael win $12,000 twin 15-lap dashes for cash added to program

5/29/17

Port Royal – Lucas Wolfe of Mechanicsburg turned in a rousing performance aboard Michael Barshinger’s No. 24 sprint car to claim the prestigious $10,000 Bob Weikert Memorial for 410 sprint cars at Port Royal Speedway on Monday night.

The feature was held over and completed on Monday evening after rains on Sunday night postponed the event mid-race.

In the 25-lap URC Sprint feature, it was Greg Hodnett getting by Aaron Ott during a late race restart to claim the $2,000 to prize.

Additionally, after the Sunday postponement, a pair of 15-lap dash races were held for both sprint car divisions, in order to reward all drivers and fans for returning to the track for a third night in a row.

A total of $12,000 in additional purse money for the dashes was added to the already posted $90,000 weekend payout that found Lance Dewease scoring the 410-sprint dash and Curt Michael claiming the URC dash.

Second starter Trey Starks of Washington state got the jump on polesitter Greg Hodnett to take the lead at the start of the 35-lap Bob Weikert Memorial.

Hodnett dropped backwards during the first several laps as both Dylan Cisney and Aaron Ott overtook him after starting in the second row.

Ott made his first attempted pass on Cisney for second on the fifth tour but Cisney returned the favor and a lap later the leader entered the backmarkers with eighth starter Wolfe up to fourth, ahead of Danny Dietrich.

Wolfe was howling at the heels of both Ott and Cisney on the 12th tour and got around Ott for third two laps later.

Starks was still way out in front however with Cisney running him down in traffic when the lone caution of the race unfurled with 19 laps to go for a stopped George Streaker Jr. in the second turn, wiping out a more than three second lead he had amassed over the field. .

Cisney and Wolfe kept Starks much closer when action resumed and as the race wore on, they were clearly gaining on the leader while also battling one another for second.

Amid heavy traffic, Wolfe pulled the trigger on Cisney for second while hanging onto the narrowest strip of outside rough to gain momentum around the extreme top of the first and second turns.

But Cisney fought back and raced wheel to wheel with Wolfe all the way up to the fence as the pair dueled for the spot, somehow avoiding collision at the exit of the second corner.

Wolfe was scored as second with six laps to go and continuing to ride his high side rough patch through the first and second turns, he closed the gap on Starks for the win.

Starks meanwhile was running the wheels off of his No. 44 but Wolfe was surging during the final laps.

Wolfe used a run off the outside of the fourth corner to draw to Starks inside as the pair raced into the first corner with four laps to go, catching Starks by surprise while squeezing his car into the narrowest of spaces remaining to the leader’s inside.

Wolfe’s turn one move caused Starks to twitch as he set his car into the corner in order to avoid what could have been another potential catastrophe in the event while it also allowed Wolfe to shoot through the hole he had created going into the corner and head to the victory.

Through traffic to the finish, Wolfe took his fifth career victory at the oval by 2.112 seconds.

The victory was also the biggest in decades for car owner Michael Barshinger who formerly had fielded cars for Cory Haas, Johnny Mackison Jr., and others.

Barshinger equated the win to his 1991 victory in the Selinsgrove Speedway National Open.

Starks held on for second over Dylan Cisney, Danny Dietrich and Aaron Ott.

Sixth through 10th went to 19th starter Lance Dewease, TJ Stutts, Greg Hodnett, Dale Blaney and Logan Wagner.

Dewease earned the $229 Hard Charger Award sponsored by The Beer Hill Gang.

Heats run on Sunday for the event went to Lucas Wolfe, Danny Dietrich and Dylan Cisney with Dale Blaney setting fast time on Sunday with a lap of 16.270 seconds.

Hodnett won the dash to earn the pole for the feature event.

Dewease started sixth in the seventh in the 15-lap 410 sprint dash with second starter Mike Wagner taking the lead at the start.

Dewease steadily marched through the field to take third behind Greg Hodnett on the fifth tour before muscling by Wagner for second with five laps to go.

Saturday night’s feature winner at the track, Dewease ran down leader Wagner and took over control with two laps to go to pick up the $1,500 winner’s share while also establishing a new 15-lap track record in the process.

Dewease set the new mark at 4:59.441, eclipsing the old record set by Randy Ruth in 1976.

Wagner rode home second followed by Hodnett, Cisney, Dietrich, Ott, Blaney, Stutts, Ryan Taylor, Starks, Logan Wagner and Wolfe.

Doug Esh led the first three laps of the 25-lap URC Sprint feature before fourth starter Aaron Ott drove by for control.

Greg Hodnett started seventh in the field and drove up to third on the first lap before getting around Esh for second with 10 laps to go.

But by that time, Ott was well ahead of the field and ready to take the win however a yellow flag with six laps to go changed the race via a double file restart with Hodnett lining up to Ott’s inside.

Hodnett go the jump on Ott when action returned and jetted away with control to pick up his first ever URC win at the track while 10th starter Chuck Hebing of New York worked through the field to garner a fine second.

Ott was third with Esh fourth and Davie Franek finishing fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Lucas Wolfe, Curt Michael, Doug Hammaker, Nate Snyder and Derek Locke.

Heats went to Michael Walter, Ott, Franek and Hodnett with Derek Locke taking the consolation race.

Doug Hammaker earned a $500 bonus as the highest finishing 358 sprint in the race, sponsored by Racers Used Parts Warehouse.

The URC dash found second starter Curt Michael leading all 15 laps to pick up the $1,000 paycheck.

Doug Hammaker chased him throughout while Chuck Hebing put on a show from the seventh starting spot.

He got as high in the field as second at one point but Hammaker was up to the challenge, forcing him to take a third place finish.

Hodnett was fourth followed by Ott, Wolfe, Stutts, Franek, Josh Weller, Locke, Justin Whittal and Nate Snyder.

FOURTH ANNUAL KRAMER CUP WILL HONOR MEMORY OF RACING LEGEND KRAMER WILLIAMSON THIS SATURDAY AT SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY; PRO STOCKS, 355 ECONO LATES & MID-ATLANTIC MODIFIEDS ROUND OUT RACING CARD

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Selinsgrove Speedway will present the Fourth Annual United Racing Club Kramer Cup at 7 p.m. Saturday, June 3, 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.

Joining the 360 sprint cars on the racing card will be the pro stocks, 355 econo late models, and Mid-Atlantic modifieds. Track gates will open at 5 p.m.

This Saturday will mark the first-ever appearance by the 355 econo late model division at Selinsgrove. The 15-lap main event will pay $650 to win and $75 to start. For the Mid-Atlantic modifieds, Saturday will be only the second-ever race for the division at the Snyder County oval. In last year’s 20-lap race, former NASCAR regular David Stremme took the modified victory. The pro stocks will compete in a 15-lap feature.

Kramer 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 third 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.

Mark Smith of Sunbury won the inaugural Kramer Cup in 2014 and took the victory again in 2016. Robbie Stillwaggon scored the prestigious win in 2015.

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 Raceway Park will run a complete program of go kart racing at 7 p.m. Friday, June 2. Track gates will open at 5:30 p.m.

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY

SNYDER RETURNS TO SELINSGROVE SPRINT CAR VICTORY LANE; MATTERN BECOMES FIRST REPEAT LATE MODEL FEATURE WINNER; MITCH SCORES SECOND CAREER PRO STOCK 20; BUSSEY WINS ROADRUNNER SEASON OPENER

SELINSGROVE, Pa. -- The sun shined for one of the first times on a Saturday night all year as Selinsgrove Speedway offered one of its most exciting weekends in racing. PEPSI Night at the track saw the second appearance of the season by the United Racing Club 360 sprint cars plus the Pro Stock 20, Late Models, and season opener for the Roadrunners.

Eddie Strada showed the way early before he had car problems taking him out of contention on lap number seven of the 25-lap URC 360 sprint car main event. Nate Snyder was in search of his first win at the track since 2011. Numerous restarts gave Derek Locke and Cody Keller opportunities to try to go by the race leader. Snyder held tough at the front.

On lap 17 Locke made his best attempt to take the race lead after reeling in Snyder in lap traffic. Locke pulled even with Snyder, but Snyder fended off the challenge and got away from Locke on his way to the checkered flag. Locke finished in second just ahead of Mallie Shuster.

Jason Shultz gave the fans a thrill coming from the 19th starting spot to finish in fourth in front of Keller. Larry Kelleher, Chad Layton, Chris Coyle, Curt Michael, and Troy Betts completed the top ten finishers.

Heat races for the 360 Sprint Cars were won by Jason Clauss, Eric Tomecek, and Brett Michalski.

Hayes Mattern looked like a lock to be the Late Model feature winner on Saturday night as he drove away from the field in the 20-lap feature. A lap eight yellow flag would change the whole complexion of the race. Mattern did not get a good restart and Danny Snyder took advantage of it racing into the top spot. Snyder led the way until lap 12 when Mattern would get the top spot back and bring Steve Campbell with him.

Campbell followed Mattern closely for the next few laps before pulling to the inside on lap 19 to try to grab the win away. Campbell's car spun at the exit of turn two during the battle on the final lap.

The spin set up a one lap shootout that saw Mattern hold off a pretty tough charge from Donnie Schick who finished second. Snyder was third across the line followed by Tony Adams and Gene Knaub.

Luke Hoffner finished sixth with Dave Stamm, Nate Long, Zach Kauffman, and Meade Hahn crossing the line as the top ten.

Late model heat wins went to Meade Hahn and Danny Snyder.

Brad Mitch can recall a lap 12 caution flag as one of the crucial moments in his quest to be a two time winner of the A&A Auto Stores Pro Stock 20. Mitch slid up the race track and allowed Tommy Slanker to take the race lead, but a yellow flag negated the pass and Mitch was placed back in first spot.

Slanker spent the rest of the race tailing Mitch at the front with Shawn Lawton hanging in the shadows running third. On the final lap Slanker dove to the inside of Mitch setting up a drag race finish. The finish became very melodramatic when Slanker's car began dumping fluid and his car slowed off turn 4 allowing Mitch to pull away to the win over Shawn Lawton.

AJ Stroup, Slanker, and John Fowler were the top five finishers. Johnny Bouse finished in sixth with Brandon Moser, Peanut Heintzelman, Noah Jensen, and John Schoch rounding out the top ten finishers.

Tommy Slanker, Shawn Lawton, and Brad Mitch won heat races with Lawton winning the cash dash. Each heat race winner received $40 from the family of Jim Payne as well a dash payout.

The night cap run by the Roadrunners kept the fans on the edge of their seat. Keith Bissinger, the defending champion, flipped in his heat and was starting deep in the field. A returning Bob Bussey grabbed the lead away from Ryan Leister early on. Brian Johnson got into the outside wall on a restart that saw he and Bissinger run a lane higher than what the track had to offer. It was at that point that Bussey realized he needed to move up to the high side of the track before he got passed.

Bussey did just that and won the Roadrunner season opening event. Bissinger finished second ahead of Will Brunson, Smith Cope, and Leister.

Roadrunner heat race wins were captured by Ryan Leister and Darren Rice.

For the second week in a row the speedway had many of the standing track records broken. Meade Hahn broke the track record In the Late Models after the first heat race of the night before Danny Snyder broke it again in the second one.

Next Saturday will mark the third race of the season at Selinsgrove Speedway for the united racing club in the annual Kramer Cup in memory of former champion Kramer Williamson. The Race will run 30 laps and pay $2,573 to win.

The Mid Atlantic Modifieds and Econo Late Models will also join the Sprint Car teams as well as the Pro Stocks.

Track gates will open at 5 p.m. Racing will start at 7 p.m.

SATURDAY, MAY 27, 2017 SUSQUEHANNA SPEEDWAY RACE RESULTS

KENNY EDKIN TAKES BUD BRICKER NATIONALS

Christine and Updegraff Repeat Winners; Combs New Winner

By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA…5/27/17 After claiming his first career win in exciting fashion just over a month ago, Kenny Edkin backed that up with an impressive win in Saturday night’s Blazers Body Shop Bud Bricker Nationals presented by Sutliff Chevrolet at Susquehanna Speedway.

The Marysville, PA racer started on the outside front row of the 40 lap feature along Scott Dellinger but it would be Dellinger who would gain control at the onset and held the point through numerous early and mid-race cautions.

Edkin stayed in Dellinger’s tracks and made a bid for the lead with 29 laps complete to take the top spot. Like Edkin, Dellinger stayed close and made another bid for the top spot with five laps to go but jumped the cushion. That was enough to give Edkin some breathing room as he sped away to his second win of the season and the first repeat winner in the division this season.

The win was worth $2,500 to Edkin and his Edkins Towing, Marysville Motorcars, Carlisle Auto Salvage, King Spin Pizza, Rich Valley Black Walnuts sponsored team.

Dellinger, who set fast time over the 31-car field and won the Dash settled for the runner-up spot over Tony Jackson, Russ Mitten and 11th starting Paul Miller with Rich Eichelberger earning the Brown and Miller Race Solutions Hard Charger coming from 15th to sixth trailed by Jay Fannasy, Mike Enders, Gregg Foster and Devin Beidel.

Dellinger’s time trial lap was 17.303 while heats were won by Troy Hockenberry, Mitten and Jackson. Bruce Buckwalter, Jr. won the consolation.

Defending track champion Randy Christine, Jr., also became the first repeat winner in the Bernheisel Race Cars 358 Late Model feature as he came from his fifth starting spot to claim his second season win.

Ben Whitaker led the first 11 laps before Sean Merkel took over until lap 15 when Christine powered into the top spot and never looked back as he took the checkered flag over ninth starting and Artwerks by Jeff Jacobs Hard Charger winner Charles Potts. Third went to to Chase Billet over Brad Shank and Whitaker with Andrew Stotler, Sam Rial, Merkel, JR Rodriquez and Drew Weisser completing the top ten.

Whitaker and Merkel were heat winners for the 17 late models.

Jimmy Combs came out on top of a wild finish in the 20-lap Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stock feature to become the fifth different winner in as many races.

A final lap double file restart set up the last lap dramatics as Matt Adams got the jump on leader Eddie Richards going into the first and second turns. As the duo entered turn three, Richards got into Adams, sending both spinning as Combs drove by for the win over Mike Potts, Craig Morgan, 11th starting Scott Thunberg and 16th starter Jasen Geesaman, the Artwerks Hard Charger winner.

Mike Buckely and Thunberg won heats for the 19 car field.

For the fifth time this season, defending track champion Alex Updegraff led the way to the checkers in the Superior Homes Extreme Stocks as he dominated the 20 lap main for the win over Patrick McClane, Jeff Gill, Donnie Broderick and Kyle Emig.

Updegraff was also the heat winner for the 11 car field.

Susquehanna Speedway returns to action Thursday night, June 1 with the first ever appearance of the Ernie D’s Appalachian Mountain Late Model Speedweek presented by DirtonDirt.com at the speedway. The high flying super late models will take to the Susky red clay in the second night of the 2017 Speedweek series.

Dewease And Hubbard Win Port Royal Fallen Heroes Championships Saturday

Twin 30-lap Mains Thrill Fans With No Less Than Seven Different Leaders

5/27/17

Port Royal – Lance Dewease of Fayetteville and Austin Hubbard of Seaford, Del., picked up the prestigious Fallen Heroes Championships for 410 sprints and super late models at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night in what was a pair of thrilling, multiple leader 30-lap main events run as part of the Bob Weikert Memorial weekend at the oval.

The $5,000 win for Dewease, his second of the year at the track and 102nd of his career there, came only after he overtook three earlier leaders in Trey Starks, Dale Blaney and Danny Dietrich.

Blaney won the dash to earn the pole for the 410 sprint car feature event with Starks starting the event in second spot.

Starks got the drop on Blaney when the green flag unfurled but only the first lap could be recorded before Trenton Sheaffer brought out the red flag with what was a vicious crash in the first turn that annihilated his car after contact with the outside fence.

Sheaffer flipped wildly into the first turn collecting Carl Bowser in the destruction although both escaped injury.

Starks had Blaney, Steve Buckwalter, Danny Dietrich and Brock Zearfoss chasing for the restart.

Blaney dug hard on the restart and for the next three laps before he was able to muscle underneath Starks for the lead in the fourth corner and take command.

Meanwhile, eighth starter Dewease seemed to be rather stagnant and when a three-car tangle brought out another yellow flag on the eighth tour, the running order was Blaney, Starks, Buckwalter, Dietrich, Zearfoss and Dewease.

Starks took a few jabs for control on the restart but Blaney pulled away as Dietrich flexed his muscle to work into third and then into second on the 12th tour.

Dietrich was very fast during the mid-stages using the topside of the speedway and he was able to catch Blaney at the halfway point as Dewease began gaining speed around the bottom groove.

Gettysburg’s Dietrich, flying the Weikert’s Livestock No. 29 colors as part of the Bob Weikert Memorial weekend races at the track, took the lead from Blaney with 14 laps to go but soon found he couldn’t get away from the field.

By this time Dewease was mowing down his foes around the inside of the speedway, motoring into a challenging third on the 17th lap.

Working through traffic with 10 laps to go, Dietrich did his best to open up an advantage as the leader but Dewease came to second with seven laps to go and then chugged by for control and the win with five laps to go.

Dietrich and Dewease exchanged the lead in the first and second turns on the 25th lap before Dewease went back out in front for good in the third turn to run to the win by 1.259 seconds.

The win puts Dewease just 27 back of Port Royal all time sprint car winner Keith Kauffman on the oval all time win list.

Dietrich rode home second followed by Blaney, Starks and Doug Esh.

Sixth through 10th went to Dylan Cisney, Brock Zearfoss, Greg Hodnett, Aaron Ott and TJ Stutts.

After motoring from 22nd to 11th at the finish, Brent Marks earned the Beer Hill Hard Charger award worth $229 and earned a guaranteed starting spot in the Sunday Weikert Memorial itself.

Heats went to Buckwalter, Starks, Zearfoss and Ott with the consolation going to Tyler Walker while Blaney won the dash.

Dietrich set Packer’s Concession fast time worth $100 with a lap of 15.884 seconds.

An equally thrilling super late model main unfolded following the sprint car feature with no less than three leaders throughout.

Matt Cosner took the lead from the second starting spot over Coleby Frye when action began with Jeff Rine moving into third on the second lap.

Cosner entered lapped traffic on the 11th tour as both Frye and Rine battled relentlessly for second while both drivers gained on the leader.

Rine briefly and barely secured second on lap 16 but by that time Cosner was in heavy traffic and Frye used the traffic to his advantage to set up a thrilling, extremely rare three-wide move for control.

Headed through the fourth turn on the 17th lap with Rine on the inside and alongside Cosner for the lead, Frye went way high and wide to make it three-wide for the lead as the trio raced onto the frontstretch.

Frye upended the pair at the line to take control but by that time eyes turned to sixth starter Austin Hubbard who was clearly on the move.

Hubbard got by Cosner for third with 11 laps to go and then worked on Rine for several laps before getting second with five laps to go.

Just two laps later, Hubbard had run down leader Frye and in rather typical Coleby Frye fashion, Hubbard powered to the deep inside of the third turn to pull a slide job on Frye himself for the lead.

Hubbard crossed the line as the leader with three to go before another caution flag bunched the field.

The restart saw Hubbard pull away as Frye worked to hold off Rine.

Hubbard then sped to the finish and took the $3,000 checkered flag simultaneously as a caution was required for a spin on the backstretch.

Frye ended up second followed by Rine, Cosner and Andy Haus.

Heats for the 35 late models in action went to Rine, Chad Hollenbeck and Frye with Devin Friese taking the consolation.

Fast time worth $200 from Ernie D’s went to Rine with a lap of 18.689 seconds.

FREDDIE RAHMER CLAIMS CAREER THIRD IN LINCOLN 410 SPRINT CAR FEATURE;

Phil Walter sixth winner in six races in 358 sprints; Lucas Montgomery best of 38 Central PA Legends

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA – May 27, 2017 – “Spank” no more for Freddie Rahmer at Lincoln Speedway.

Rahmer has built up a solid points lead at Williams Grove Speedway, but has had his problems at Lincoln this season.

“We’ve been good since last Wednesday, when we changed one or two things, and it looks like I can race out here,” said Rahmer upon exiting his Leffler Energy/Miller Brothers Chevrolet #51 in victory lane, “This whole year out here I’ve been a spank. I thing we have something now.”

“Tonight’s one night, but it’s definitely a confidence builder for me, said Rahmer, “That was a tricky race track tonight. The curb was chunky and there were so many lapped cars. I wasn’t falling out of the seat, but it was getting all l could do, I’ll tell you that.”

Rahmer started inside his brother on row two and held his own while polesitter Tim Wagaman led the first nine laps. Rahmer drove around both Jay Galloway and Wagaman to take the race lead in turns one and two of lap 10 and led the rest of the way, many times in heavy lapped traffic.

Wagaman broke and spun in turn three of lap 25, the only caution of the event. That put eighth-starting Cory Haas and Chad Trout on his back bumper for the restart, with Chase Dietz and 13th-starting Brian Montieth in fourth and fifth.

Rahmer, however, had little trouble with a clear track ahead, and crossed under the checkered with a sizeable lead for his first Lincoln win of the year.

Haas, Dietz, Trout, and Montieth rounded out the top five, with Robbie Kendall, Galloway, 14th-starting Tyler Ross, Billy Dietrich, and Gerard McIntyre, Jr. completing the top ten.

Heats for the 23 “410” Sprints were won by Haas, Kendall, and Trout.

McClure’s Phil Walter dominated the 20-lap “358” sprint car feature, starting on the outside pole and leading every lap for his second career Lincoln 358 win.

Polesitter Trey Hivner chased Walter for the first 14 laps before seventh-starting Todd Gracey took over the runner-up spot. Hivner crossed third, followed by Dalton Dietrich (who ran in the top five the entire race) and Matt Findley.

Sixth through tenth were Steve Wilbur, 18th-starting Doug Hammaker, Chandler Leiby, Jeff Halligan, and Troy Wagaman, Jr.

Heats for the 29 “358” Sprints were won by Findley, Adrian Shaffer, and Hivner, with Chris Frank winning the consolation.

York’s Lucas Montgomery raced to his seventh career Lincoln win the first appearance of the season for the Central PA Legends. Montgomery started fifth and was in the midst of a multi-car battle for the race lead the entire event.

He finally wrestled the lead from Scott Haudeshell on lap nine, two laps after leader Scott Smith spun exiting turn four.

Travis Perry came from seventh starting spot to challenge Montgomery on a last lap restart following a red flag for a flipping Rick Hartwig in a four-car crash on turns three and four, but wasn’t able to make the pass and settled for second. Third through fifth were Harlon Leppo, Hayden Pascoe, and Haudeshell.

Heats for the 39 Central PA Legends were won by Leppo, Perry, Jason Gastley, and Montgomery, with Alex Schmidel and Donnie Leiby winning the twin consolations.

Next Saturday night, June 3rd, at 7:30 PM it will be John H. Myers Night and ARCH Night featuring the 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints, and 358 Late Models. Gates will open at 5:30 PM, with racing action getting underway at 7:30 PM.

Danny Dietrich Wins Williams Grove Diamond Series 4K Friday, Watkins claims 305s

5/26/17

Mechanicsburg – Gettysburg’s Danny Dietrich piloted Gary Kauffman’s No. 48 sprint car to his first win of the Williams Grove Speedway season on Friday night, pocketing $4,000 for the victory in the second leg of the 2017 Diamond Series.

In the 20-lap PASS 305 sprint main, Mark Watkins took the win after Ian Detweiler spun out of the lead with four laps to go.

For Dietrich, it was a flag to flag victory in the 410 sprint main, with his pace slowed only once, on the second lap.

The caution period was for the stopped cars of Brock Zearfoss and Jay Galloway in the second turn. The incident began when TJ Stutts nearly spun his mount before continuing on while the other two cars got collected.

Dietrich entered traffic on the eighth lap with Freddie Rahmer and Dale Blaney chasing him for the lead as they had since the drop of the green flag.

With 15 laps to go in the 25-lap feature, Lance Dewease got around Blaney for third while trying to catch Rahmer.

However neither Rahmer nor Dewease was able to close on the leader as all of the front-runners worked through traffic.

Dewease made a few attempts at an outside fourth turn pass of Rahmer for second but saw little results for his efforts.

Dietrich cruised unscathed to the victory by .393 seconds over Rahmer with Dewease finishing third followed by Blaney and Greg Hodnett.

Sixth through 10th went to Aaron Ott, Brian Montieth, Lucas Wolfe, Brandon Rahmer and Alan Krimes.

Heats went to Brandon Rahmer, Montieth and Dietrich.

The win was the 16th of Dietrich’s career at Williams Grove.

After two attempts at a start of the 305 sprint main, Ian Detweiler took the lead and had Mark Watkins chasing him in second when a caution flag unfurled with nine laps completed.

On the restart, Stephanie Dodson got around Watkins for second and again swapped the spot in the fourth corner before the lap could be completed.

And as it would turn out, that flip flop for second on the restart ended up being the race for the lead as Detweiler spun in front of the field while in command on the 16th tour, causing another yellow flag period and handing the lead to Watkins.

Dodson was unable to challenge on the lap 16 restart and it was Watkins taking advantage of the spin for the win.

Dodson was second followed by Scott Ellerman, Colby Dice and Cale Reigle.

Sixth through 10th went to Kyle Ganoe, Dave Brown Jr., Ken Duke Jr., Tommy Carberry and Darren Miller.

Heats went to Detweiler, Kyle Craker and Miller.

SNEERINGER CLAIMS FIRST OF THE YEAR IN TRAIL-WAY 358 SPRINTS;

Young pulls double in 600cc & 270cc micros; Walls dominates street stocks; Chronister takes limited stocks

HANOVER, PA (5/26/2017) – Isaac Sneeringer inched ahead of race-long leader Dwight Leppo moments before a 17th-lap red flag and held off Leppo the rest of the way to score his first win of the year in the 25-lap Insinger Performance Fuels Spring Championship for 358 sprint cars at Trail-Way Speedway Friday night.

“I needed the lapped traffic, and got him right at the line before that red,” said Sneeringer upon exiting his TE Racing #19Z in victory lane, “She took off like a rocket after the red. The first three weeks we had a vibration, and tonight it was better. We have a baby boy on the way in a couple of weeks, and this money will probably go toward that!”

A 12-car redraw placed Leppo on the outside of the front row for the start, and he grabbed the lead from polesitter Joe Trone, Jr. at the outset and led the first 16 laps. Sneeringer, who started fourth, caught Leppo at the line to complete lap 17. They were the only two cars to pass under the flagstand before a red flag came out for a flipping Chris Priar in turn two.

Sneeringer assumed the lead for the restart, and crossed .84 seconds ahead of Leppo at the finish to claim the $1,200 top prize. Big Mike’s Crabhouse hard charger Steve Owings came from 11th starting spot to finish third, with Jeff Halligan and J.B. Cunningham completing the top five.

Sixth through tenth were Cody Fletcher, David Holbrook, T.J. DeHaven, Steve Kisamore, and Trone completing the top ten.

Qualifiers for the 16 sprint cars were won by Sneeringer and Todd Gracey.

For the first time in his career, Jim Young was a double winner in the micro-sprint divisions, claiming both the 600cc micro-sprint and Mason-Dixon 270cc micro-sprint features.

In the 600s, Young bested Bradley Weber by .44 seconds. Travis Keiser, Jesse Snyder, and hard charger Kameron Morral (who started 12th, completed the top five.

In the 270, Young crossed .75 seconds ahead of Brian Marriott, with Mike Rutherford, Joe Long Jr. and Billy Logeman rounding out the top five.

Heats for the 600s were won by Young and Jesse Snyder.

Qualifiers for the 270s were claimed by Levi Peck, Cory Myers, and Rutherford.

Brian Walls blew away the field in the 20-lap street stock feature, ending his race 8.47 seconds ahead of Matt Wampler, with Aaron Beard, Cory Weishaar, and Dalton Myers finishing third through fifth.

Walls was also the event’s hard charger, coming from 11th starting spot to catch Wampler following a fourth-lap caution for Zach Myers, who was running second at the time. Walls actually advanced from 11th to fifth after two failed attempts to start the race resulting in cautions on lap one.

Matt Chronister came from 11th-starting spot to score his first win of the year in the 15-lap limited stock feature. Brother Jason Chronister (who started 12th) finished second, with Robbie Carroll, Terry Hartlaub, and Justin Wagaman crossing third through fifth.

Heats were won by Matt Chronister and Terry Hartlaub.

Next Friday, June 2, 2017, Trail-Way Speedway will be dark. However, the following day, Saturday, June 3, 2017, Trail-Way will feature the 6th Annual “Armin Hostetter Classic,” for the AMA Short Track series. Gates open at 3:00 p.m. and racing begins at 6:00 p.m.

PAUL MILLER CHARGES TO FIRST SUSQUEHANNA WIN

Dave Brown, Ryan Greth and Alex Updegraff Visit Victory Lane By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA…5/20/17 Paul Miller not only earned the Hard Charger award Saturday night at Susquehanna Speedway but the Fawn Grove., PA driver’s impressive charge resulted in his first win of the season in the 25-lap Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman feature.

Starting deep in the field in the 18th starting spot, Miller’s charge to the front was impressive as he took the lead with ten laps complete and then held off a feisty Kenny Edkin before securing the win.

Following two yellows before a lap could be completed, Devin Beidel led the first six laps before giving way to Tom Wyckoff who led laps seven and eight.

Beidel went back out front on the ninth lap but Miller drove by for the race lead, a lead he would never relinquish but had to fend off the challenges of Edkin, the feature winner the last time the Super Sportsman were in action.

Miller became the fourth different winner in as many races this season.

Edkin, who started 10th, settled for the runner-up spot trailed by 12th starter Scott Dellinger, Russ Miller and Tony Jackson with 19th starting Scott Geesey coming home sixth ahead of 21st starter Doug Dodson, Beidel, 20th starter Chase Gutshall and Jay Fannasy.

Jackson, Mitten and Justin Foster won heats for the 31-car field with Geesey taking the consolation win.

Cale Reigle led the first 11 laps of the 20-lap PASS/IMCA 305 Sprint car main before fourth-starting Dave Brown took control.

Brown would never look back as he became the third different winner in as many 305 Sprint mains this season at the track.

Tyler Reeser raced home second ahead of Reigle, 14th starter Darren Miller and Kyle Ganoe as Colby Dice, Austin Bishop, 19th starter Kyle Craker, Stefanie Carberry and Ken Duke, Jr. completed the top ten. Craker was named the Hard Charger.

Brown, Reeser, Dave Grube and Ganoe won heats for the 34-car field. Nick Sweigart won the consolation.

Ryan Greth led all 20 laps to score the win in the ARDC Midget feature over Alex Bright, Brendon Bright, Bret Arndt and Tommy Kunsman.

The race was red flagged on the third lap for a violent series of flips on the front stretch by Trevor Kobylarz. He was not injured.

Arndt and Kunsman won heats for the 13 cars.

Continuing his domination over the division this year, defending track champion Alex Updegraff took the win in the Extreme Stock 50 lapper.

Updegraff started third and went out front with ten laps in the books and went onto dominate the remainder of the event for his fourth win of the season. He was followed by Jeff Gill, Michael Smith, Donnie Broderick and Jeff Waltz.

Heats for the 12 cars were won by Patrick McClane and Don Murphy.

Susquehanna Speedway returns to action Saturday night, May 27 as the Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman compete in the Blazers Body Shop Bud Bricker Nationals presented by Sutliff Chevrolet/PA Veterans Foundation. The Bernheisel Race Cars 358 Late Models, Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stocks and Superior Homes Extreme Stocks are also on the racing card. Race time is 7PM.

There will also be a Test ‘N’ Tune on Wednesday night, May 24 from 6-9PM at the Speedway.

SHANE STEWART’S FIRST WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY VICTORY COMES IN MORGAN CUP WORTH $17,000

MECHANICSBURG, PA – Shane Stewart earned a total of $17,000 for his first career Williams Grove Speedway win in the Morgan Cup Saturday night sanctioned by the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series.

For the driver from Bixby, Okla., it was also his first series win of the season in the Larson Marks No. 2.

“If you would have told me my first win of this season was going to be at this racetrack, I wouldn’t have put all of Donald Trump’s money on that one,” said Stewart.

“Track position was everything. This place gets really, really dirty and as I came up on the lapped traffic, I was more or less stuck. Typically, you do see two grooves here, but tonight it just wasn’t there. The dash draw really helped put us out front. You don’t even know what it means to me to finally get to victory lane here. The East Coast isn’t always kind to me. I’m going to cherish this win for sure.”

Stewart and T.J. Stutts shared the front row for the 30-lap main event and nearly main contact as they raced down the frontstretch on the initial start. Stutts secured the lead in turns one and two. Stewart looked to the middle of the corners, but couldn’t pass the leader.

He began to pull away with three laps completed. Third place Sheldon Haudenschild did a 360-spin in turn two. He kept racing and no caution flag was thrown.

Stewart began to close as they reached lapped traffic and blasted under Stutts as they raced into turn three and would slide in front of him. Stutts drove back under him and they were side-by-side down the frontstretch.

Haudenschild spun again and stopped in turn three interrupting the lead battle with 11 laps completed.

Stewart grabbed the lead on the double-file restart. Stutts tried to take it back, but couldn’t off turn two. Logan Schuchart passed Tim Shaffer for third and Lance Dewease was up to fifth following the restart.

“I didn’t get a good initial start to the feature,” said Stewart. “I told myself that if TJ picked the bottom that I actually thought the top was going to be a better starting spot. It worked out really good for us. Clean air makes a big difference. My guys have worked really hard this year. We haven’t had very good finishes. We’ve had some races that we should have won and I’ve either screwed up or we’ve had crazy stuff happen to us.”

A second turn crash involving Brian Montieth and Brent Marks slowed the pace with 15 laps completed.

Stewart picked the outside lane for the double-file restart and got a good one as he drove away from Stutts unchallenged. Daryn Pittman moved to fourth on the restart as Dewease lost some spots.

Stewart was in control as Shaffer got back by Schuchart on the restart and then pressured Stutts for second. Stewart had a 2.935 second lead when the caution flew with nine laps to go when Kraig Kinser stopped on the frontstretch.

Pittman blasted by two cars and into second on the restart and Shaffer drove by Stutts into third. Dewease was passing cars again with five laps remaining as he drove by Schuchart and into fourth.

Stewart controlled the final laps winning by 2.049 seconds over Pittman and Shaffer.

“I don’t think I’ve ever seen this place like this tonight,” said Pittman. “It was definitely different. Toward the end of the race it got more like normal Williams Grove. We had a good car on restarts and I could get by a couple guys each time. We’ve been working hard on this car. Shane was quite a bit faster than we were in clean air.”

“Tonight, we did the right things, put ourselves in position, and we’re on the frontstretch,” said Shaffer.

Dewease and Schuchart completed the top five and banged wheels on the backstretch following the checkers.

Stutts, Ryan Taylor, David Gravel, Jason Johnson and Brad Sweet rounded out the top 10.

Johnson set quick time over the 37-car field with a lap of 16.402. Dewease, Sides, Schuchart and Shaffer followed Johnson in qualifying. Haudenschild, Stutts, Stewart, Taylor and Dale Blaney rounded out the top 10 in qualifying.

The eight-lap heat races were won by Johnson, Dewease, Sides and Schuchart. Stewart won the dash and Brent Marks won the Last Chance Showdown.

Sprint Car Feature (30 laps): 1. Shane Stewart. 2. Daryn Pittman. 3. Tim Shaffer. 4. Lance Dewease. 5. Logan Schuchart. 6. TJ Stutts. 7. Ryan Taylor. 8. David Gravel. 9. Jason Johnson. 10.

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY FINALLY BEATS THE WEATHER SATURDAY NIGHT: SMITH (360 SPRINTS), BERNHEISEL (LATE MODELS) & SLANKER (PRO STOCKS) ALSO VICTORIOUS!

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – After three weeks off, two due to inclement weather, Selinsgrove Speedway pulled off an exciting three division show despite another serious effort to dampen the action by Mother Nature.

The Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprint series sanctioned the Mach 1 Chassis 360 Sprint Car Spectacular at on Reinhart Food Service Night Saturday with a strong 30-car field.

A multi-car incident on the start of the 25-lap main event in turns one and two resulted in Adam Carberry’s sprint car flipping over. All drivers escaped injury. At the drop of the green flag to restart the A-Main Jason Barney showed the way with Ryan Kissinger in pursuit.

Derek Locke drove into the top spot on the following lap with Kissinger in chase. Kissinger then closed in on Locke quickly in lap traffic. Kissinger's car developed mechanical problems on lap 11 and slowed to bring out a yellow flag.

A restart on lap 12 gave the field a shot at Locke after he led the race early. The double file restart brought Robbie Stillwaggon and Mark Smith to Locke, but a yellow put the field back to single file. Smith took advantage of the restart to take the top spots with a sweeping move around both Stillwaggon and then Locke. Once out front Smith drove away from the field.

The yellow flew on lap 20 to bunch the field up once more. On the restart, Chad Layton would take over second from Locke but as the two drivers battled Smith would drive away to his first win of the season at Selinsgrove and collect $2,000. Locke would secure the second spot before the drop of the checkered flag and Layton would round out the podium. Barney and Davie Franek were the top five finishers.

Heat races for the 360 Sprint Cars were won by Jeff Cook, Robbie Stillwaggon, and Davie Franek. The B-Main was won by Jason Shultz and the dash went to Michael Walter.

Track records were falling on a fast Selinsgrove Speedway. Michael Walter has the new track record in the 4 lap dash. Davie Franek now owns the track record for the 10-lap distance for sprint cars.

Bryan Bernheisel showed the field to the green flag in round two of the Moon Shine Camo Route 35 Late Model Challenge series. Bernheisel led early holding off the advances of a hard charging Jeff Rine.

Various yellow flags throughout the event allowed Rine to get close, but he was never able to make the pass of Bernheisel. In the final corner Rine made one final bid but was unable to get by.

The Delaware double file restarts definitely made things challenging said Bernheisel in victory Lane. He continued by saying, “I was trying to do something a little different and diamond them on the starts so that Rine wasn't able to get by me as easy on the inside.”

It all paid off for the 119 with "Kid Lazer" taking his first win of the season worth $2,000. Rine and 10th place starter Coleby Frye rounded out the podium. Chad Hollenbeck came from 19th to finish fourth followed by Jim Yoder.

Steve Campbell, Rick Singleton, and Tony Adams were the heat race winners for the Jeff's Auto Body Late Models.

AJ Stroup battled Dustin Snook early on in the pro stock feature event. The race was the final time for the drivers to tuneup for the rescheduled Pro Stock 20 next weekend.

Tommy Slanker showed he will be a force to be reckoned with driving from the 10th spot up into the top three before lap three ever went on the board. On lap six Slanker dove to the inside and made the pass of Stroup for the race lead. Soon Shawn Lawton would move into the runner-up spot and by lap 12 the lead was shrinking.

Lawton put all of his eggs in the basket going into turn three coming to the white flag when he went to the inside of the race leader Slanker. Lawton pushed up the track and Slanker was able to get away for his second win of the season.

Lawton crossed the line in second but was penalized at the end for passing before the cone. Stroup moved to second followed by Snook, Lawton, and Brandon Moser.

Heat races for the Pro Stocks were won by Shawn Lawton and AJ Stroup.

Next Saturday night, May 27, Selinsgrove Speedway is back in action on Pepsi Night over the Memorial Day weekend. Racing on May 27 will feature the 360 Sprint Cars plus Late Models, the rescheduled A&A Auto Stores Pro Stock 20, and Roadrunners plus Fireworks! Racing will kick off at 7pm. Track gates will open at 5 p.m.

DAVID GRAVEL WINS WORLD OF OUTLAWS MORGAN CUP WEEKEND OPENER FRIDAY NIGHT AT WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY

MECHANICSBURG, PA – David Gravel held off Donny Schatz over the final laps to win the Morgan Cup weekend opener Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway in a 25-lap main event sanctioned by the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series.

His seventh series win of the season, and second straight in Pennsylvania after winning Wednesday at Lincoln, was worth $8,000.

“I’m with a great team with great crew guys,” said Gravel, of Watertown, Conn. “We just keep getting better and better. I got lucky with the dash draw again. When it goes your way; it goes your way. I guess it’s our time right now. The last restart, I didn’t feel that great, and I screwed up on the last corner on the last lap and I’m sure (Schatz) got pretty close. I had just enough to hold on.”

After winning the dash, Gravel started on the pole and grabbed the race lead over Brad Sweet as Greg Hodnett and Daryn Pittman raced hard for third with Hodnett getting the spot. Schatz started fifth and passed Pittman as well and then swapped third with Hodnett on lap two.

The caution flag flew with three laps completed for a third turn incident involving Lucas Wolfe and Joey Saldana.

Gravel extended his lead to about half a straightaway with 10 laps completed. He led by 1.3 seconds with 13 laps completed as he reached slower traffic.

This allowed Sweet to close as Gravel began to try the bottom groove to lap cars. Schatz drove by Hodnett and into third with seven laps to go and closed on the leaders.

They were having trouble passing the lapped cars and Schatz took advantage moving by Sweet and into second with four to go. Jason Sides, who was lapped and in the middle of the leaders, ended up into the inside backstretch fence with four laps to go bringing out the caution flag. A single-file restart ensued.

Rahmer would drive by Sweet and into third on the restart as Schatz stayed right with Gravel. The caution flew again with three laps to go.

Gravel controlled the restart, but Schatz stayed within striking distance trying to make the bottom groove work as did Rahmer over the final laps. Gravel stayed on the cushion and had a miscue in turn four as Schatz closed even more finishing 0.380 behind Gravel. Rahmer finished a close third.

“You have to qualify good here,” said Gravel. “It’s huge. We did that tonight and keep putting ourselves in good positions.”

“You’re not going to get him in open race track,” said Schatz. “We had to stay in traffic. That’s the way it goes some days. I had a great car. You have to make things happen off the cushion.”

“It means a lot to be able to race with these guys,” said Rahmer. “We put the whole night together. I’m pretty happy with this. We run our car to get faster at the end of the race. I needed to maintain early so I could get good at the end. I was really good in one and two. I just need to work on three and four for tomorrow night. “

Sweet and Hodnett completed the top five.

Pittman, Brian Montieth, Lance Dewease, Sheldon Haudenschild and Brent Marks rounded out the top 10.

Saldana set overall fast time with a lap of 16.639 in the second qualifying flight. Grove point leader Rahmer set fast time in the first flight of qualifying with a lap of 16.818. A total of 41 cars were in the pits.

Rahmer, Schatz, Saldana and Pittman won the eight-lap heat races. Greg Wilson won the C-main, Gravel won the dash and Trey Starks won the Last Chance Showdown.

The Morgan Cup concludes Saturday night with the Morgan Cup and $17,000 going to the winner and the Morgan Cup trophy either staying at Williams Grove or Outlaws headquarters in Charlotte, N.C.

OWINGS MAKES LATE-RACE PASS TO CLAIM 358 SPRINT WIN AT TRAIL-WAY; BRAD SHANK WINS FIRST IN 358 LATE MODELS; TRANSEAU TAKES LEGENDS; JASON CHRONISTER DOMINATES LIMITED STOCKS

HANOVER, PA (5/19/2017) – Steve Owings caught race-long leader Cody Fletcher in heavy lapped traffic to score his second win of the year in Friday night’s 25-lap 358 sprint car feature at Trail-Way Speedway.

“I hated to see Cody lose that race,” said Owings after exiting the Westminster Transmission/Westminster Lawn/Valentine Motorsports #35 in victory lane, “I want to thank the crew. A monkey could drive this car.”

“There were a lot of lapped cars, but everyone held their line and nobody did anything stupid,” continued Owings, “This is a good place to run. I don’t understand why more cars don’t come here to race.”

Actually, Friday night’s field of 19 cars was the biggest of the year. Owings started eighth and was also the event’s Big Mike Crabhouse hard charger. Owings was fifth by the end of the first lap, advanced to third by the fifth lap, drove around Todd Gracey for second on lap seven, and spent the next 17 laps tracking down Fletcher before making the race-winning pass exiting turn two of lap 24.

Sixth-starting Isaac Sneeringer crossed third, followed by Gracey and 12th-starting Dwight Leppo. Sixth through tenth were David Holbrook, T.J. DeHaven, Joe Trone, Jr., Landon Myers, and Austin Kirby.

Heats for the 358 sprint cars were won by Sneeringer, Holbrook, and Gracey.

The start of the feature events was delayed one-half hour by a shower that hit the speedway.

Brad Shank scored his first career win in the 25-lap feature for 358 late models. Shank started fourth out of the five cars that were able to report out for the feature. Travis Mease and Shank ran first and second the entire way until Shank took the lead on lap 13 as the two made contact on the front stretch and Mease spun into the infield. Bobby Beard assumed second for the restart and ran there the rest of the way, crossing .63 seconds behind the winner. Tommy Slaker finished third, followed by Mease and Larry Neiderer.

The lone heat for the eight 358 late models was won by Bobby Beard.

Chris Transeau raced to his first win of the year and the third of his TW career in the 20-lap Central PA Legends feature. Bill Diehl led the first 15 laps from the pole before yielding to Transeau. One lap later, Diehl dropped from the field with damage from an earlier incident with a lapped car during a caution period.

Australian Hayden Pascoe finished second, followed by Justin Mitchell, Jeff Herbst, and 12th-startingMason Chaney.

Heats for the 26 Legends were won by Diehl, Transeau, and Scott Houdeshell. Alex Schmidel was the consolation winner.

Jason Chronister drove away from the field to score his second win of the year and career 16th in the 15-lap limited stock feature. Chronister started fourth, crossed second behind polesitter Robbie Carroll at the end of the first lap, and took the lead from Carroll on lap two. Shannon Weaver, Travis Brown, Julio Perez, and 12th-starting Justin Wagaman finished second through fifth.

Heats for the 23 limited stocks were won by Weaver, Chronister, and Brown.

Next Friday, May 19, 2017, Trail-Way Speedway hosts the rescheduled Insinger Fuels 358 Sprint Car Spring Championship, paying $1,200 to win. Joining the Sprint Cars will be the Street Stocks, Limited Stocks, Mason-Dixon 270 Micro Sprints and the 600 Micro Sprints. Gates open at 5:30 p.m., with heats beginning at 7:45 p.m.

5/14/17

Mechanicsburg – Williams Grove Speedway will present the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series this Friday and Saturday, May 19 and 20 with time trials getting underway both nights at 7:30 pm.

Gates for each day of the affair will open at 5 pm with fireworks included in both programs.

Adult general admission tickets are $30 each night with youth ages 13 – 20 admitted for $15 and ages 12 and under admitted to the shows for free.

The Williams Grove campground will open at noon on Wednesday for those wishing to stay the weekend at the historic oval with spots priced at just $30.

The Williams Grove Speedway portion of the 50/50 during both weekend shows will be given to a collection of charities including: Kickin For Kids, Kids Camp Cadet, Kiwanis and the Bethesda Project.

The May 19 and 20 outlaws stand at Williams Grove will be the first match up of the season by the circuit against the Pennsylvania Posse sprint car stars as both groups meet to compete in The Morgan Cup weekend presented by NAPA/NGK Spark Plugs.

Friday’s show will feature a showdown going 25 laps in distance, paying $8,000 to the winner.

Saturday’s feature will be 30 laps with $12,000 posted as the regular winner’s share plus another $5,000 to win the Morgan Cup presented by NAPA/NGK Spark Plugs, making the Saturday grand total $17,000 for the checkered flag.

The Saturday 2017 Morgan Cup event honors late Williams Grove owner Morgan Hughes with not only cash but bragging rights also up for grabs.

The Morgan Cup trophy itself will go home for another season to the circuit headquarters of whoever wins the race, either to the home of the PA Posse at the offices of Williams Grove Speedway or to the corporate home of the World of Outlaws in North Carolina.

Already a winner at the track this season as well as elsewhere in the region, Lance Dewease of Fayetteville won the only May outlaws program completed at Williams Grove last season with the other falling victim to rain.

Still early in the 2017 season, Freddie Rahmer of Salfordville has established himself atop the Lawrence Chevrolet

Williams Grove Speedway point standings and he could very easily be a contender for a win during the upcoming outlaws two-day stand along with Dewease.

Perennial World of Outlaws point champion Donny Schatz of North Dakota and Connecticut’s David Gravel currently sit atop the outlaws point standings with Schatz having established himself as the leading circuit winner to date while actually holding the point lead.

Mark Smith Wires For First Port Royal Sprints Win In Eight Years

5/13/17

Port Royal – Former track champion Mark Smith of Sunbury wired the field for the 25-lap 410 sprint car win at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night, taking $3,200 for the 33rd win of his career at the track.

The win marked the end of an eight-year absence for Smith from 410-sprint victory lane at the oval.

Rick Singleton of Huntingdon took the win in the 22-lap super late model main after being the benefactor of the leader’s misfortune twice in the event.

In the econo late model main it was Andrew Shoop scoring his first ever win in the division while Dave Grube took his first career win in 305-sprint action at the track.

Smith’s run to the win in the 410-sprint main saw him enter lapped traffic on the eighth lap with Steve Buckwalter in tow from the fourth starting spot.

Eighth starter Dave Blaney blasted into fourth on the first circuit but would get no higher in the running order, instead slipping backward as the race continued.

Smith worked with the lead as sixth starter Rick Lafferty eventually came to third with 17th starter Greg Hodnett on his heels.

Buckwalter was able to challenge Smith for the lead during the mid-stages but Smith was strong enough to stay out front, choosing his lines through traffic carefully to preserve control.

The race nearly went non-stop until a lone yellow flag unfurled for a stopped Chad Trout as the field was headed to the checkers on the final lap.

The final lap restart proved uneventful with Smith ending up taking the win by .864 seconds over Buckwalter with Lafferty third followed by Hodnett and Tyler Bear.

Bear gave up third to both Lafferty and then Hodnett with four laps to go.

Sixth through 10th went to Aaron Ott, Dave Blaney, Mike Wagner, Logan Wagner and Brock Zearfoss.

Heats went to Smith, Bear and Buckwalter.

The super late model main was a harrowing affair with no less than seven caution flags and three leaders, two of which fell out of the top spot.

When the race began, polesitter Matt Parks got crossed up in front of the field in the first turn, nearly collecting Tim Smith Jr. while third starter Andy Haus blasted by on the inside lane to take command.

Haus was running away with the lead on the fourth tour when he slammed into the outside first turn wall to bring out the first of the numerous cautions.

This handed fifth starter Rick Singleton the lead with Tim Smith Jr. restarting second and Smith challenged Singleton for the lead when action resumed.

Meanwhile, after starting 16th in the field, Chad Hollenbeck was working the pack and was scored sixth on a lap six restart and ensuing restarts worked in his favor to make sweeping outside passes in order to blast to the front.

On the 11th tour, Hollenbeck worked the outside lane beautifully to make a two-car pass of both Smith and Singleton to take the lead and never look back.

Hollenbeck withstood restarts just after completing the 11th lap and again on lap 15 with no issues but then when another yellow flag appeared for a stopped Mike Lupfer with four laps to go, Hollenbeck withdrew from the event, again handing Singleton control of the event.

And this time Singleton would not again relinquish control even with a final restart on lap 19 and a final lap challenge by Smith.

Singleton took third win of his career at the track by .117 seconds ahead of Smith, followed by Matt Parks, Austin Berry and Dylan Yoder.

Sixth through 10th went to Jim Yoder, Rance Garlock, Tim Wilson, Nick Dickson and Bryan Bernheisel.

Heats went to Parks, Jeff Rine and Wilson.

Rine set a new one-lap and eight-lap track record in the second heat race, setting a new single lap mark of 17.470 seconds and a new eight-lap mark of 2:22.094.

Andrew Shoop took the lead from JR Toner on a lap six restart to speed to his first career checkers in the division at the track.

Eric Irvin drove into second for the finish followed by Tim Fedder, Todd Snook and Toner.

Sixth through 10th went to Harold Ranck, Derrick Garman, Curt Dunn, Garrett Gray and Tim Krape.

Heats went to Fedder and Krape.

Fedder set new one-lap and eight-lap records in his heat race, establishing the single lap mark at 19.718 seconds and the eight-lap record at 2.39:710.

Drew Ritchey led the first lap of the 305-sprint main before Jeff Miller took over.

However Miller’s night would end abruptly three laps shy of the finish when he slammed the outside second turn wall after opening up a huge lead in what was a foggy feature event.

Miller’s calamity with the wall handed the lead to Grube who went on to win over Tyler Reeser, Ritchey, Ron Aurand and Cale Reigle.

Heats went to Stephanie Dodson and Aurand.

SUSQUEHANNA SPEEDWAY RACE RESULTS

LANCE DEWEASE DEFENDS GOBRECHT CLASSIC WIN
Doug Hammaker Gets Second Win in 358's
By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA…5/7/17

Anytime Lance Dewease and the Don Kreitz Racing team hit the race track, odds are high that they will be standing in victory lane at the end of the night.

Dewease successfully defended his win in Sunday night’s Select Collision Kevin Gobrecht Classic presented by Hessiron.com at Susquehanna Speedway.

Dewease’s win came in the second of seven BAPS Auto Paints and Supplies 410 Sprint Series events at the York Haven oval and was worth $5,760 to the Fayetteville veteran.

Dewease’s winnings included a $4,800 base pay for the 30-lap event plus $480 from Emory Transmissions for setting fast time and another $480 for the ServiceMaster “Clean Sweep” for quick time, winning his heat and winning the feature.

Dewease lined up fifth on the starting grid as polesitter and dash winner Greg Hodnett set the early pace through the first four laps before a caution for Bradley Howard closed the field.

Brian Montieth drove around Hodnett on the restart and immediately pulled away, opening up a four-second advantage when disaster struck with 15 laps complete when Trey Starks spun as Montieth was coming up to lap him and had no where to go and hit Starks to bring out the red flag.

This put Dewease on the point and he would never look back in scoring his fourth win in five starts this season and first win at Susquehanna in 2017.

Hodnett finished in the runner-up spot trailed by Aaron Ott, ninth-starting Lucas Wolfe and 13th starting Brock Zearfoss with Brandon Rahmer, Kyle Moody, Ryan Smith, Kyle Reinhardt and Tyler Ross completing the top ten finishers. Reinhardt took the $480 bonus for Brown and Miller Racing Solutions for the Hard Charger Award..

Dewease’s lap of 15.241 seconds paced the 27-car BAPS 410 Sprint field while heat races were won by Dewease, Starks and Moody. Freddie Rahmer was the consolation winner.

Doug Hammaker took his second straight win in the 25-lap 358 Sprint car feature, which was the Grantville drivers third overall win in 2017.

Brent Shearer led the first three circuits before giving way to Hammaker who then the on during the marathon feature, that saw seven cautions and one red flag slow the pace.

Hammaker was strong throughout the event to bring home the checkered flag over Dwight Leppo, Jordan Givler, Troy Wagaman, Jr. and Brett Wanner with TJ DeHaven, Cody Fletcher, Jared Esh, Chris Frank and Wyatt Hinkle rounding out the top ten.

Kevin Nouse, Jared Esh and Givler were heat race winners for the 28 car field as Jeff Halligan won the consolation.

Next up for the BAPS Auto Paints and Supplies 410 Sprint Series will be a special Thursday night program on Thursday, June 8 as the 410 Sprints will be joined by the PASS/IMCA 305 Sprints on Sprintcarunlimited.com Night. Racing will begin at 7 PM.

With two great nights of racing, plan on spending your weekend with us at Port Royal Speedway.

“I really want to thank Steve (O’Neal) and Todd (Weikert) for asking us to be a part of this historic weekend” said Appalachian Mountain Speedweek Co-Promoter, Kurt Smith.

“With our speedweek starting the following Wednesday and this race being exactly one week before Port Royal’s speedweek date on June 3, this is a perfect opportunity for the Late Model teams to get dialed in by running the exact speedweek format under the speedweek rules.”

TYLER REESER WINS JIM STRAUSBAUGH BALD HILL SHOOTOUT Kobylarz, Updegraff and Sigler Also Take Checkered Flags By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA…4/29/17

Tyler Reeser came away with the big win in Saturday night’s Jim Strausbaugh Memorial Bald Hill Shootout for the Freedmont ® Mortgage Lending PASS IMCA 305 Sprints at Susquehanna Speedway.

The Orwigsburg driver assumed control of the event on lap 12 when leader Cale Reigle slowed on the speedway while leading.

Reigle, who started on the pole took the lead on lap eight from Stephanie Dodson but mechanical woes sidelined him shortly after taking the point.

Reeser, who had lined up sixth on the starting grid would go unchallenged to his first win of the season at Susquehanna aboard his MAS Trucking No. 5T. The win was worth $1,000 to Reeser in a race run in memory of Strausbaugh, a noted mechanic and car owner who passed away last year.

Following the Orwigsburg racer under the checkered flag were Rick Stief, Kyle Ganoe, 12th starting Zach Newlin and Dodson with Dave Brown, Jaremi Hanson, Greg Dobrosky, Mark Watkins and Drew Ritchey completing the top ten.

In victory lane, Reeser chose two random envelopes for $500 bonuses from Wintermyers Auto Salvage. Brown and Dodson were the recipients.

Brown, Reeser and Dodson were heat race winners for the 26 305 Sprints. Nick Sweigart won the consolation.

Trevor Kobylarz led all 20 laps to pick up the win in the Autobahn Indoor Speedway ARDC Midget feature over Brendon Bright, Ryan Greth, Alex Bright and Adam Pierson.

Both Bright brothers were heat race winners for the 15 car field.

Defending track champion and current point leader, Alex Updegraff came from his 10th starting spot to post his third win in four starts in the 20-lap Superior Homes Extreme Stock feature.

Not even a late race yellow with two laps remaining could slow Updegraff who posted the win over Patrick McClane, Travis Horan, Jeff Gill and Kyle Emig.

McClane won the heat for the 11 Extreme stocks.

Kevin Sigler became the fourth different winner in as many races this season as he came away with the win in the 20-lap Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stock feature.

Sigler started second and led flag to flag but his domination out front was slowed on lap 12 for a red flag that saw Chad Stine flip his car.

Trailing Sigler at the finish were Eric Tripp, Craig Morgan, 10th starting Mike Potts and Scott Thunberg as Jimmy Combs, Bobby Kupp, Matt Adams, Dalton Frye and Joey Hoffer rounded out the top ten.

Hoffer, Sigler and Potts were heat winners for the 22-car field.

The first weekend of May will see another double-header at the York Haven facility as the Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman return to action on Saturday, May 8 joined by the BRC 358 Late Models, Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stocks and Pennmar Cars. Race time is 7PM.

Then on Sunday, May 9, the BAPS 410 Sprint Series returns for its second of seven events with the Select Collision Kevin Gobrecht Classis presented by Hessiron.com. Joining the 410 Sprints on this big program will be the 358 Sprints and it will also be ARCH Night. Race Time is 7PM.

Lance Dewease Wires Port Royal All Stars Keith Kauffman Classic

Dylan Yoder Claims Moon Shine Rt. 35 Late Model Series Kickoff

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

4/29/17

Port Royal – Lance Dewease wired the field from the pole for an impressive victory in Saturday’s 30-lap All Star Circuit of Champions Sprints Keith Kauffman Classic at Port Royal Speedway.

The win, behind the wheel of the Don Kreitz Jr. owned, Dave Brown Sr. wrenched No. 69, was the 101st of his career at the Port Royal oval and was worth $5,000.

In the kickoff to the Rt. 35 Moon Shine Camo Dirt Late Model Challenge Series, Dylan Yoder of Selinsgrove scored the $2,000 victory after getting the lead late when leader Jeff Rine’s motor expired.

The 30-lap Kauffman Classic, honoring the tracks most prolific sprint car winner and champion in history, went non-stop with Dewease leading every circuit while putting on an impressive show in traffic while also narrowly avoiding disaster on two occasions.

Dewease entered the rear of the field on the sixth circuit of the feature and at times made three-wide passes to continue moving forward in traffic.

At the halfway point, Dewease had a 4.760 second lead that grew to 6.748 seconds at the finish.

In the first half of the event, Dewease slammed into the inside first turn retaining barrier and glanced back out onto the track but continued on with the lead.

And then late in the event, hard contact with the lapped car of Doug Esh in the third turn proved to nearly be his undoing.

In victory lane, the right front tire of his machine was spewing air from the contact with the wheel bent away from the tire.

Ryan Smith started third in the event and motored by second-starter Blane Heimbach on the start to chase Dewease the entire distance while also fending off challenges, first from Steve Buckwalter and later from defending Kauffman Classic champion Dale Blaney.

Blaney got around Buckwalter for third on the 12th lap and reeled in Smith but repeated attempts to get by for second were unsuccessful.

During the final stages of the race Blaney’s run stabilized.

Dylan Cisney raced consistently throughout to ride home fourth with Heimbach slipping to fifth at the finish.

Sixth through 10th went to Buckwalter, Chad Kemenah, Brock Zearfoss, TJ Stutts and Mike Wagner.

Heats for the 42 cars went to Cisney, Blaney, Kemenah and Buckwalter.

The C Main was taken by Brandon Spithaler while Aaron Ott scored the B Main.

Twin dashes went to Dewease and Heimbach.

Fast time in time trials was set by Dewease with a lap of 17.559 seconds.

The Moon Shine Camo Series kickoff super late model feature was a drawn-out affair with numerous cautions and a red flag hampering the event.

On the initial lap, polesitter Matt Parks spun in front of the field in the second turn.

Tim Smith Jr. then took the lead when the first lap was completed bu fourth starter Jeff Rine was quick to motor by Smith for the lead.

And once in front, Rine jetted away from the field, entering the rear of the field on the seventh tour.

A yellow flag with eight away bunched the field finding Dylan Yoder up to second but unable to challenge on the restart with Smith instead reclaiming second.

Another yellow flag with 10 laps down again forced a restart and a red flag ensued when three cars tangled in the fourth corner that found Dave Brouse Jr. ramping up and over two cars, flipping in the process and landing upside down.

Luckily, there were no injuries reported.

Two more cautions on lap 11 and on the restart regrouped the field again but Rine was too stout for all challengers on restarts.

And then just after lap 20 was scored, leader Rine spewed smoke from his machine as his engine expired, handing the lead to Rine.

Ironically, Yoder was leading the first three late model mains of the year at the track only to lose them when mechanical ills forced him to withdraw from the races.

Chad Hollenbeck took second spot at the finish followed by Coleby Frye, Tim Wilson and Nick Dickson.

Sixth through 10th went to Mike Lupfer, 24th starter Trent Brenneman, Rick Singleton, Chad Myers and Austin Berry.

Heats went to Smith Jr., Wilson and Yoder.

DIETRICH SETS NEW RECORD IN CLAIMING $6,900 TOP PRIZE IN LINCOLN WELDON STERNER MEMORIAL;

Defending champ Leiby scores 5th career win in 358 sprints; Dellinger also gets 5th career win in super sportsman

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 4/29/2017 – “This is a fast race car.”

That understatement was delivered by Danny Dietrich after claiming his third win of the year in the 33-lap, $6,900-to-win 14th Annual Weldon Sterner Memorial for 410 sprint cars at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

Time trials, qualifying, and an inversion at the front of the field placed Dietrich on the outside of the front row for the start. He grabbed the lead from polesitter Jim Siegel at the outset and dominated the rest of the way.

His lead was 1.16 seconds when he hit lapped traffic on lap nine. He increased it to over three seconds as he raced through heavy lapped traffic at the half-way point, and crossed 6.72 seconds ahead of Alan Krimes, setting a new 33-lap record in the process (8 minutes, 53.171 seconds).

Krimes started sixth and came on strong at the end, passing Gerard McIntyre, Jr. for the runner-up spot with seven laps to go. Third through fifth were Lucas Wolfe (who passed McIntyre for third laps to go), 13th starting and hard charger Brian Montieth, and McIntyre.

Sixth through tenth were Siegel, Cory Haas, Chad Trout, Freddie Rahmer, and Billy Dietrich.

410 Sprint heats were won by Krimes, Freddie Rahmer, and Billy Dietrich, with Brandon Rahmer winning the consolation. Fast time in time trials over the 29-car field was set by Lucas Wolfe with a 1-lap time of 13.229-seconds (102.049 MPH).

Chandler Leiby survived a hard double-whammy with the outside wall in turns one and two with five laps to go to score his fifth career win in the 20-lap 358 sprint car feature. Leiby sustained no damage on impact, and although he slowed momentarily to recover, his lead was big enough to stay in front and claim the $1,200 top prize.

His final margin of victory was 1.06 seconds over David Hobrook, with Todd Rittenhouse, Jr., Dalton Dietrich, and Adrian Shaffer completing the top five. Brie Hershey ended a great run by coming from 17th starting spot to finish sixth, with Kyle Denmyer, Chris Arnold, Chris Frank, and Jeff Halligan rounding out the top five.

So far, there have been five different winners in five races in the 358 division at Lincoln this season.

Heats for the 30 358 Sprints were won by Holbrook, Matt Findley, and Shaffer, with Phil Walter winning the consolation.

Like Leiby, Scott Dellinger scored his fifth career win in 25-lap super sportman feature. That event also went non-stop, with Dellinger crossing under the checkered in a time of 7 minutes, 22.30 seconds. His final margin of victory was 1.66 second over Mike Enders, with Chad Criswell, Frankie Herr, and Kenny Edkin finishing third through fifth.

Herr led the first ten laps from the pole, with outside front row starter Dellinger close behind. Dellinger caught Herr on lap 11 and withstood challenges from Enders and Criswell over the second half of the race. A dive through lapped cars in turns three and four with two laps to sealed the $1,200 win.

Heats for the 24 Super Sportsman were won by Criswell, Edkin, and Garrett Williamson.

Next Saturday night, May 6th, it will be York County Racing Club (YCRC) Night with 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints, and Central PA Legends at 7:30 PM. Gates open at 5:30 PM.

Dewease Notches No. 87 At Williams Grove In All Stars Tommy Classic

Tyler Reeser claims 305 sprints

4/28/17

Mechanicsburg – It’s win number 87 and counting for Lance Dewease in the sprint car record books at Williams Grove Speedway after his defeat of Freddie Rahmer and the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions Sprints in the annual Tommy Hinnershitz Classic on Friday night.

Now at 87 wins on his career at the oval, Dewease of Fayetteville needs just three more victories to tie Fred Rahmer Sr. on the all-time Williams Grove win list and four more to become the all-time win leader.

Tim Shaffer and Freddie Rahmer comprised the front row for the start of the 30-lap Tommy Classic with Rahmer going for all the marbles in the first and second turns on the green flag lap but Dewease stuck his nose into the mix on the low side and came out with second as the trio raced onto the backchute.

Shaffer held a small lead over Dewease during the opening laps but by lap four Dewease was reeling in the leader and it took just two more laps for him to catch Shaffer and make a low side pass in the third and fourth corner to take command of the field with six away.

Dewease then entered the backmarkers on the ninth tour as Rahmer finally got around Shaffer for second just shy of the halfway point.

The only caution flag of the race unfurled 14 laps to go for a stopped Steve Buckwalter, erasing a .921 second lead that Dewease had over Rahmer.

Rahmer proved a stout challenger on the restart and over the entire ramining distance, consistenly rolling the outside lane in the first and second turns to try and gain valuable ground in an effort to net the top spot.

Dewease again entered traffic with six laps to go and Rahmer was close enough the whole time to keep Dewease honest but he was never as close as he was on the final lap in the second corner.

As it happened, Dewease and Rahmer took the white flag with backmarker of Anthony Macri just in front and when Dewease chose low to enter turn one, so did Macri with Rahmer blasting the outside lane.

Rahmer drove up and around Macri with Dewease seemingly boxed out until at the last possible moment Macri slipped up off of the bottom just enough in the middle of the turn to set up a breath taking three-wide situation as Dewease nudged by both Macri and Rahmer to burst onto the backstretch still the leader.

The surge that Dewease got off of the bottom groove in the second turn allowed him to hold onto the victory, taking his second win of the year at the track by .814 seconds at the finish.

The $5,000 win was the sixth All Stars victory of Dewease’s career at Williams Grove Speedway alone and the 32nd of his career overall on the series circuit.

Shaffer held on for second followed by Aaron Ott and Danny Dietrich.

Sixth through 10th went to Trey Starks, Brian Montieth, Lucas Wolfe, TJ Stutts and Tony Stewart.

Heats went to Rahmer, Montieth, Wolfe and Stewart with twin dashes going to Shaffer and Rahmer.

Steve Buckwalter took the B Main and Rodney Westhafer took the C Main.

Dewease set fast time over the 45-car field with a lap of 16.446 seconds.

Jay Krout led on the first circuit of the 20-lap PASS 305 sprint main before Tyler Reeser took over the lead and headed to victory.

A lengthy red flag period on the third lap took place for a four-car tangle in the fourth turn.

The final 17 laps of the race went nonstop witih Reeser winning over Zach Newlin, Ken Duke Jr., Krout and Rick Stief.

Heats went to Colby Dice, Kyle Ganoe and Cale Reigle.

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY

22 April 2017 By Michael Batz

FRANEK HOLDS OFF HODNETT FOR SPRINT CAR GUNN MEMORIAL VICTORY; MATTERN POWERS TO FIRST LATE MODEL WIN OF SEASON; MITCH REPEATS IN ANOTHER CLOSE PRO STOCK FINISH

SELINSGROVE, Pa. -- Davie Franek of Sussex, N.J., scored the $2,500 win over a talented 360 sprint car field in the 30-lap 37th annual Jack Gunn Memorial Saturday night at Selinsgrove Speedway. The victory was Franek’s second in a row at the track this season, 13th career, and first in the Gunn race.

Brad Mitch of McClure joined Franek as repeat winners from last week by taking another close win in the 15-lap pro stock feature. It was Mitch’s 24th career pro stock win.

Hayes Mattern of Beavertown powered to a convincing win in the 25-lap super late model feature. The win was Mattern’s first of the season and third career in super late model racing at Selinsgrove.

Chris Coyle led the field in the early laps of the Jack Gunn Memorial sprint car race. Coyle soon had some pretty strong company with last week’s winner, Davie Franek, and Greg Hodnett closing in. A yellow flag put Coyle back in front of Franek as the field had not completed a lap with Franek at the front.

Franek took advantage of the restart to take the helm while Hodnett followed him through into the second spot on lap eight. A fuel stop was called when Chad Layton and Mark Smith got together in turn two while racing for the fifth spot. Franek paced the field for the next ten laps after the fuel stop before he got into lap traffic. Hodnett quickly closed the gap that Franek had opened up.

Hodnett's opportunity quickly dwindled away as the laps counted down and Franek began to drive away again in traffic. Franek crossed the line to claim his first Jack Gunn Memorial race. Franek said in victory lane he was not sure what to expect after the fuel stop because he didn't feel his car was good on a full fuel load. It made no difference on this night though with Franek winning for the second week in a row.

Hodnett, Curt Michael, Robbie Stillwagon, and Adam Carberry were the top five across the line. Kevin Nagy led the charge for sixth through tenth ahead of Coyle, Josh Weller, Derek Locke, and Larry Kelleher.

Nate Snyder took the Fast Tees Fast Time Award in Memory of Jim Nace. Franek, Stillwagon, Coyle, and Carberry won heat races while Troy Betts took the checkered flag in the consolation event.

Hayes Mattern must have learned from Jeff Rine when Rine used the outside to pass him for the race lead on Saturday in the Jeff's Auto Body and Recycling super model feature event. Rine's car slowed on lap five and Mattern went back to the race lead.

Mattern had moved to the top side of the race track even though Mattern's crew encouraged him to run the inside line in the feature event. But as the race went on it appeared Mattern had made the right choice to stay loyal to the outside line. Mattern fended off challenges from Tony Adams and maneuvered through lap traffic without losing any distance of his lead.

The only moment when the race lead seemed in jeopardy was when Mattern tried to cross over to a clear race track and caught the tail of one of the cars going down a lap. Both drivers recovered quickly allowing Mattern to finish off his bid for his first win of the season. Adams followed Mattern to the checkered flag ahead of Dylan Yoder and a hard charging Kyle Hardy. Chad Hollenbeck rounded out the five finishers. Andy Haus, Steve Campbell, Bryan Bernheisel, Jim Yoder, and Andrew Yoder finished out the top ten. Hollenbeck, Adams, and Rine were heat winners.

Brad Mitch took the race lead away from Dustin Snook with a slide job in turn one on lap two. From that point, it looked like Mitch was locked and loaded for this second straight win heading into the Pro Stock 20 on May 6.

Mitch commanded the field until lap 13 when opening night winner Tommy Slanker pulled to his rear bumper. Slanker hounded Mitch the last two laps of the race, but never could work by the 10m. Mitch, who was under the weather much of the week, claimed the victory over Slanker and John Fowler. Strong runs for AJ Stroup and Dustin Snook were rewarded with top five finishes. AJ Hoffman came from 14th to finish sixth followed by Shawn Lawton, Brandon Moser, Kurt Wray, and Curtis Lawton. Shawn Lawton and Dustin Snook were heat race winners for the Pro Stock field.

There will be no racing next Saturday night April 29th. Selinsgrove Speedway returns at 7 p.m. Saturday, May 6, with the annual Pro Stock 20 presented by A&A Auto Stores. The 360 sprint cars, super late models, and roadrunners will be in action as well. Track gates will open at 5 p.m.

The six-race, dual track Moon Shine series has posted a $3,500 guaranteed point fund for the top-five in series points with other prizes posted for the top ten in points.

In addition this year, Moon Shine has posted a $250 award for every driver who enters every series event contested in 2017 that fails to finish in the top ten in series points after the final event in September.

A stellar field of both super late models and super sprint cars is expected.

The high flying BAPS 410 Sprints will be featured on the big night honoring the life of the up coming driver, whose life was taken way too soon in a sprint car crash in Nebraska.

The event will also signify the 48th birthday of the late New Oxford star as the Gobrecht Classic will pay $4,800 to win the 30-lap event with $480 just to start the main event.

Time trials will set the stage for the race with $480 going to the driver who sets quick time from Emory Transmissions and another $480 going to the Hard Charger from Brown & Miller Racing Solutions.

The “Servicemaster Clean Sweep” will pay a bonus of $480 if a driver sets fast time, wins the heat race and the Kevin Gobrecht Classic.

Lance Dewease won the inaugural Gobrecht Classic in 2016 and will be back to defend that title once again in two weeks.

The Select Collision Kevin Gobrecht Classic is the second race in the BAPS Auto Paints and Supplies 410 Sprint Series at the York Haven track in which three drivers who have supported all seven BAPS Sprint Series events will be eligible for a $1,000 cash bonus.

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

Marks Comes Off Outlaws Trail To Win Port Royal, Sets New 25-lap Track Record

Jeff Miller becomes first repeat winner of Keystone RaceSaver Challenge for 305s

4/22/17

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Brent Marks of Myerstown took advantage of an unexpected break in his World of Outlaws sprint car schedule to invade Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night and ended up pealing some seven seconds off of the 25-lap track record on his way to a $3,200 payday.

In the 25-lap make-up 2016 RaceSaver Challenge for IMCA 305 sprint cars, Jeff Miller of Huntingdon became the first driver to repeat in the history of the event, dating back to its inception in 2012.

And in the xtreme stock main, Herm Renninger made it two wins in a row.

Nicole Bower jumped from the pole to lead the 410 sprint car feature at the start chased by Curt Stroup and TJ Stutts.

Dale Blaney started seventh in the field and blistered into third on the second tour while Bower streaked away from the field, entering the backmarkers on the sixth circuit.

Blaney was on the move early, working the top and bottom of the track, but made his moves to get into control using the bottom groove.

He got by Stroup for second low in the first and second turns of lap nine and then deep in the third corner was where he overtook Bower for the lead as she worked traffic.

However Blaney wasn’t the only man on the move in what turned out to be a dizzying event that went non-stop as eighth starter Marks took the third spot from Bower on lap 12.

Marks was slinging his No. 19M all around the speedway, working traffic and the leaders at will and drove around Stroup for second with 10 laps to go.

He then spent the next five laps running down leader Blaney before blasting by for control and the victory with five laps left.

Marks then pulled away to the eighth win of his career at the track, taking the checkers 1.266 seconds ahead of Blaney to set a new 25-lap track record of 7:32.949, overtaking the old mark held by Lance Dewease since 1992.

Stroup held on for third followed by TJ Stutts and Ryan Taylor.

Sixth through 10th went to Brock Zearfoss, Doug Esh, Danny Dietrich, Dylan Cisney and Lucas Wolfe.

Heats went to Taylor, Stutts and Bower.

Polesitter Ken Duke Jr. would lead the first 11 laps of the 25-lap Keystone RaceSaver Challenge for 305 sprints before surrendering to Jeff Miller.

Miller started sixth in the main and followed Duke, Zach Newlin and Scott Ellerman for the first nine laps before beginning his march through the top three.

After getting around Ellerman for third with 15 laps to go, he made a sweeping two-car pass of Newlin and Duke to move into the lead with 13 laps to go and then checked out on the field for the victory, worth $1,000.

Following Miller across the line for second, 4.502 seconds behind, was Duke with Ellerman finishing third followed by Newlin and Kyle Ganoe.

Sixth through 10th went to Mark Watkins, Tim Tanner, Dave Brown Jr., Dave Grube and Dylan Shatzer.

Heats went to Ganoe, Tyler Reeser, Miller and Grube with Cale Reigle taking the consolation race.

Fast time was set by Miller with a lap of 17.840 seconds.

Kassidy Kreitz won the eight lap non-qualifiers Founder’s Cup race for the IMCA 305 sprints, earning a guaranteed starting spot in the upcoming 2017 RaceSaver Challenge in October.

Herm Renninger took his second xtreme stock main of the year, driving by Kevin Imes for the victory on the second tour of the 15-lap feature.

Imes held on for second followed by Mike Goodwin, Pete Leister and Bill Powell.

Freddie Rahmer Impresses With Come-From-Behind Williams Grove Sprints Win

Nouse grabs 358 main

4/21/17

Mechanicsburg – Freddie Rahmer stole the show late on Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway, coming forward from the ninth starting spot to record the 410 sprint car win over Cory Haas, who led all but the final two laps.

And in the 358 sprint car main, Kevin Nouse pulled off the same feat, leading only the last two laps, to pick up the feature event.

Cory Haas and Matt Campbell started on the front row of the 410 sprint car feature and Haas took the lead at the start, chased closely by Campbell.

Only one caution flag on the final lap would slow the hectic pace in the feature and before that, both Campbell and Lucas Wolfe took their shots at the win.

Campbell got around Haas for the lead on the third lap only to see Haas reclaim control on the next circuit.

Wolfe meanwhile had started fifth in the field and raced into third on the fifth lap just as Campbell was again mounting a bid for the lead.

But Haas would be up to the challenge and Wolfe then began working on Campbell for second.

It took several laps for Wolfe to get around Campbell for the spot, which he finally did with 11 laps to go thanks to a run in the fourth turn.

Wolfe then set his sights on leader Haas who had been unable to get away from the pack and on the 19th lap Wolfe briefly surged into the lead in the first and second turns only to watch as Haas reclaimed narrow command on the backchute.

And it was then that Rahmer entered the picture, up to fifth and mowing down the field at will.

He took fourth from Rick Lafferty with four to go and at the same time Campbell overtook Wolfe to again run second.

On the 23rd lap, Rahmer blasted from fourth to second, passing by both Campbell and a faltering Wolfe before darting around Haas for the lead in stunning fashion as the white flag unfurled.

But just then Wolfe blew a right rear tire and spun backwards on the frontstretch, causing the lone caution period of the race.

Any potential bid by Haas to regain control proved fruitless on the restart as Rahmer easily drove to the win on the final lap, taking the checkers by .334 seconds.

Campbell rode home third followed by Lafferty and 11th starter Brian Montieth.

Sixth through 10th went to Danny Dietrich, Brock Zearfoss, Greg Hodnett, Doug Esh and Alan Krimes.

Heats went to Campbell, Dietrich and Hodnett with Eric Riggins Jr. taking the consolation.

The win was the seocond of young Rahmer’s career at the oval and it was worth $4,100 including a $500 bonus for winning from the fifth row.

The 358 sprint main saw polesitter Phil Walter take the lead when the green flag came out chased by second starter Eric Parker.

Parker tried his best to get around Walter but Walter was able to thwart his advances and keep a narrow lead even as the race hit the halfway point and worked through traffic.

However third starter Kevin Nouse was racing third and began finding speed in his machine with eight laps to go, racing to the inside of Parker for second with four laps left.

As leader Walter worked traffic, Nouse drew even with him for the lead as the pair crossed the line with two laps to go and together they boldly raced side by side into the first corner, displaying great skill in not colliding.

Walter tried to use the inside lane to seize slight control as the pair raced out of the second turn and again the pair shot into a corner, this time the third turn, side by side but this time Nouse got the upper hand and took the lead with one to go.

Shortly after taking the white flag, the races only caution unfurled, clearing the track for Nouse who was able to pull away on the final lap for his first win of the year at the track.

Parker got by Walter for second on the final lap.

Jared Esh and Doug Hammaker completed the top five

Sixth through 10th went to Brie Hershey, Adrian Shaffer, Scott Fisher, Jordan Givler and Dave Thrush rounded out the top 10.

Heats went to Parker and Shaffer.

LEPPO CLAIMS THIRD CAREER TRAIL-WAY WIN IN 358 SPRINTS;

 Kameron Morral, Eric Johnson, Jason Chronister other Friday night winners

HANOVER, PA (4/21/2017) – Dwight Leppo was in the right place at the right time to win the 358 sprint car feature at Trail-Way Speedway Friday night.

Leppo, who finished second to Steve Owings on opening night, started fourth and was running second when third-starting J.B. Cunningham pulled up lame while leading in turn four of lap 16. He assumed the lead for the restart and led the rest of the way, crossing 1.25 seconds ahead of fifth-starting and defending track champ David Holbrook at the finish.

“It felt pretty good tonight,” said Leppo upon exiting his family-owned Belmit Engineering Development/Joe Mssinger Home Improvements/Auchey Body Shop #4 in victory lane, “It felt good last week, too, but this week worked out better. I like lapped traffic, but it was nice to run where you want to for once.”

Owings, who lost a rear end in his qualifying event and lost several spots when he got out of shape and ran through the infield in the feature, came back to finish third and was named the event’s hard charger after starting ninth. Isaac Sneeringer and Wyatt Hinkle completed the top five.

Sixth through eighth were Joe Trone, Jr., Colt White, and Landon Myers. They were the only cars that finished the race.

Heats for the 16 sprint cars were won by Sneeringer and Holbrook.

Kameron Morral started on the pole and led every lap of the 20-lap 600cc micro-sprint feature for his second career Trail-Way win. Jesse Snyder, Tyler Walton, Nash Ely, and Hannah Riser completed the top five.

Qualifiers for the 17 micros were won by Walton and Snyder.

Eric Johnson started on the outside of the front row and led whole way in the 20-lap season opener for the street stocks. It was Johnson’s fourth career TW win. Michael Goodwin, Brian Walls, Zach Myers, and G.S.B. Asphalt hard charger Travis Leh (who started ninth) rounded out the top five.

Heats for the 12 street stocks were won by Brian Walls and Jeremy Stremmel.

Jason Chronister held off the late race challenges of Justin Wagaman to claim his 15th career Trail-Way win in the 15-lap limited stock feature. Chronister’s final margin of victory was a scant .25 seconds. Terry Hartlaub, Travis Brown, and Justin Oberlin finished third through fifth.

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

Next Friday, April 21, 2017, Trail-Way Speedway hosts the Precise Racing Products 358 Late Model Series, along with Mason-Dixon 270 Micro Sprints, Limited Stocks, Vintage Cars and Classic Cars. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. with heats beginning at 7:45 p.m.

UNITED RACING CLUB JACK GUNN MEMORIAL FOR 360 SPRINT CARS THIS SATURDAY AT 7PM; SUPER LATE MODELS & PRO STOCKS ROUND OUT RACING CARD

SELINSGROVE, Pa. -- Selinsgrove Speedway will present the 37th running of the Jack Gunn Memorial for sprint cars at 7 p.m. this Saturday, April 22, sanctioned by the United Racing Club. Joining the 358-360 sprint cars on the racing card will be the super late models and pro stocks. Track gates will open at 5 p.m.

For the 12th consecutive year, the Gunn Memorial will feature a 30-lap race between the traveling URC 360 sprint cars and the track’s weekly 358-360 sprint cars. The race will pay $2,500 to win and $300 to start. 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 two-time defending winner Mark Smith of Sunbury have also won the Gunn Memorial as a URC-sanctioned event.

While Heimbach and Todd Shaffer of Millerstown are the only two drivers who have won the Gunn Memorial four times at Selinsgrove, Smith will attempt to become the first to win the race three years in a row.

The Middleburg IGA is sponsoring the Gunn Memorial championship trophy.

The super late models will compete in a 20-lap feature paying $1,500 to win, while the pro stocks will race in a 15-lap main event paying $400 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 racing at 7 p.m. Friday, April 21. Track gates will open at 5:30 p.m. The second Burris Money Series go kart race of the year will be held at 9:30 a.m. Sunday, April 23.

SATURDAY ON SUPER RACING SURFACE

SELINSGROVE, Pa. Davie Franek of Wantage, N.J.; Donnie Schick of Middleburg; and Brad Mitch of McClure gave the fans their money's worth in feature racing Saturday at Selinsgrove Speedway. The night’s racing provided stiff battles for the top spots and valued trips to victory lane for each of the winners.

A collective groan went through the Selinsgrove crowd when Mark Smith's name was announced as the polesitter for the 25 lap 360 Sprint Car feature event. It's not that Smith isn't popular among fans, it’s merely the fact that when the fast guy starts up front there is usually little to no chance there will be a pass for the win. That wasn’t the case Saturday night.

Smith bolted to the race lead while second-place starter Davie Franek gave chase. A mid-race yellow proved valuable for Franek as he pulled to the rear bumper of Smith's m1 machine for the restart. Franek rolled around the outside on the restart and challenged Smith before the yellow flag flew when Chad Layton crashed in turn four.

Franek again used the outside on the restart. This time it would pay off with a successful slide job in turn three. Franek was now the race leader with Smith in chase. As Franek closed in on lap traffic in the final stages on the race, Smith would close slightly but not enough as Franek picked up his first win of the season.

“It's rare you pass Mark Smith for a win,” Franek said in victory lane afterward, thanking his crew for their many hours in the shop to help them get the win. Smith crossed the line second ahead of opening night winner Jason Shultz. Mallie Shuster and Michael Walter completed the top five finishers. Layton and Shultz took heat races.

Donnie Schick has not been to victory lane at Selinsgrove since 2011 in the Jeff's Auto Body Super Late Models. In the opening night feature event Schick looked like he might end that streak before a misjudged lap car took him out of the race lead. Schick came back this weekend and was out for redemption for himself, his race team, and his legion of fans.

Schick had challenges from Tony Adams and Danny Snyder, but neither ever posed a real threat to Schick. Schick crossed the line for the win in what he called an unbelievable moment. Adams and Snyder closed out the podium finishers. Jim Bernheisel made a rare Late Model start and drove to fourth with Dave Zona closing out the top five. Danny Snyder was the heat race winner.

The A&A Auto Stores Pro Stocks usually roll off as the first feature of the night. On this night, they made for a hard act to follow. Tommy Slanker was carrying all the momentum in the class after winning the season opener and jumping to the early race lead Saturday. On a lap four restart defending champion Brad Mitch, making his season debut, made a big move to slide into the race lead. Slanker crossed Mitch over and took the top spot back as the two continued the exchange.

Mitch would come away with the top spot after the two leaders "traded some paint" in the battle. Slanker lost some ground on lap 12 after slipping above the racing groove. Slanker quickly recovered and closed the gap with one lap to go. Even with Slanker's advances Mitch held on for his first win of the season. Slanker was second ahead of John Fowler, Brandon Moser, and Kyle Bachman. Fowler and Mitch came across the line first in heat races.

Selinsgrove Speedway will sanction the first race of the season with the United Racing Club next Saturday, April 22. The 360 Sprint Cars will compete in the 37th annual Jack Gunn Memorial race. The Super Late Models and Pro Stocks will also be on the racing card. There has been a start time change with the racing rolling off at 7pm rather than the original 6pm scheduled time. Track gates will open at 5pm.

KENNY EDKIN SCORES FIRST CAREER SPORTSMAN WIN Charles Potts, Alex Updegraff and Mike Potts Visit Victory Lane By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA…4/15/17 Kenny Edkin turned a late race pass into his first career Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman feature win Saturday night at Susquehanna Speedway.

Edkin threw everything he had at leader Doug Dodson during the 25-lap Super Sportsman feature but a late race caution put the field in a double file restart and Edkin was able to make the race winning pass on the 24th lap for that first career win.

Veteran Rich Eichelberger led the first three laps before giving way to Dodson, who started alongside Eichelberger on the front row.

Dodson maintained the top spot during several yellows as Edkin, who started 11th had worked his way into contention and was running second with defending champion Russ Mitten brought out a yellow flag on lap 22 when his car suffered a blown motor.

This set up the thrilling finish that saw Edkin drive his Edkin’s Towing, Marysville MotorCars, Carlisle Auto Salvage, King Spin Pizza and Subs, Rich Valley Black Walnuts No. 75 to victory lane for the first time ever.

Dodson settled for the runner-up finish ahead of 19th starting Scott Dellinger (Artwerks, Thompson Lawn Car, Brown & Miller Racing Solutions HardCharger), 15th starting Mike Enders and Davey Walsh as Garrett Williamson came from 22nd to sixth ahead of Eichelberger, Jay Fannasy, Timmie Barrick and Chad Smith.

Gregg Foster, Mitten, Edkin and Tony Jackson won heats for the 33 Super Sportsman. Nate Young won the consolation. Jackson’s heat race win was a New Track Record.

Charles Potts passed Steve Billet on the 10th lap and drove away from the field to post the win in the 25-lap Bernheisel Race Cars 358 Late Model feature.

Potts, who became the fourth different winner in four events, dedicated his win to his sister Victoria, who passed away two weeks ago.

Billet rode home second trailed by point leader Brad Shank, Justin Ehrhart and Ben Whitaker with Cameron Benyou, Steve Billet, Sean Merkel, Eric Hohol and Cory Merkel completing the top ten.

Steve Billet and Whitaker won heats for the 14-car field.

Not to be outdone by his nephew, Mike Potts raced home with the win in the 20-lap Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stock feature.

Starting eighth, the defending street stock champ ran second until using a final lap pass on leader Scott Thunberg. Potts became the third different winner in three races this season.

Thunberg, Jim Palm, Matt Adams and 10th starting Dalton Frye completed the top five finishers followed by Kevin Sigler, Joey Hoffer, Chris Derr, Craig Morgan and Sam Leonard, Jr.

Chris Derr and Eddie Richards won heats for the 20 street stocks.

Alex Updegraff became the first repeat winner in Susquehanna action this season as the defending champion took the checkered flag in the 20-lap Superior Homes Extreme Stock feature.

Updegraff led the final seven laps to pick up his second win of the season over Patrick McClane, early leader Kyle Emig, Brandon Staccone and Ronnie Buck.

Updegraff and Emig were heat winners for the 12-car field.

Susquehanna Speedway returns to action Saturday night, April 22 on R.E. Fink & Son Night as the Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman, Bernheisel Race Cars 358 Late Models and Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stocks will see action. The EMMR cars will also on hand. Race time is 7PM.

Brenneman Out Duels Rine For Impressive Port Royal Late Model Win

Zearfoss wires for win in 410 sprints, Shaun Miller takes econo late models

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

4/15/17

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Upstart driver Trent Brenneman of Port Royal turned in an impressive performance resembling that of a seasoned veteran in the 22-lap super late model main at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night, out-dueling late model star Jeff Rine for the first victory of his career at the historic oval where his grandfather Butch Renninger drove to numerous wins and track titles.

In the 25-lap 410 sprint car main, Brock Zearfoss of Jonestown held off TJ Stutts to record his first win of the year at the track while Tower City’s Shaun Miller won the econo late model main to close the night.

Both Brenneman and Rine started on the front row of the super late model main and the pair spent the first five laps exchanging the lead at will with each set of turns.

Rine would repeatedly overtake Brenneman for control in the second corner while Brenneman would use the bottom to perfection in the fourth turn to lead the majority of the laps at the line with the exception of the third circuit when Rine’s nose was ahead at the stripe.

Only a caution flag broke up the neck and neck action just before lap six could be scored but the battle continued when action resumed.

Brenneman was holding a .367 advantage over Rine on the ninth tour when another caution bunched the field.

And again a war on wheels was waged when action resumed with Brenneman holding his low line to keep control despite constant powering blasts on the top side by Rine and then finally on the 11th tour Rine was able to take the lead by a scant .014 seconds at the stripe.

After that Brenneman kept trying to work his bottom groove but with time he strayed to the topside trying to find more speed and that he did as lap after lap he pulled closer to pacesetter Rine’s rear deck lid.

Brenneman was clearly gaining significant ground as he blasted off of the cushion in the fourth turn and when the pair shot onto the frontstretch on the 19th lap Brenneman crossed over in the middle of the straightaway, pulling off of Rine’s bumper to use a lapped car as a pick as he entered the first corner.

When Brenneman went low on the backmarker, he pushed that car up the track in front of Rine and that allowed him to secure control once more, this time again scored the leader with just two laps to go.

Brenneman was then able to put enough daylight between himself and Rine to focus on two smooth laps and while that was happening, Coleby Frye came blasting under Rine for second with a lap to go while also closing on Brenneman.

But the win went to Brenneman by .813 seconds and a joyous victory lane erupted for the ever-improving local driver with deep ties to the oval.

Rine and Frye were the first people into victory lane to congratulate Brenneman on his victory.

Dan Stone rode home fourth followed by Nick Dickson, Andy Haus, 20th starter Mason Zeigler, Devin Friese, Mike Lupfer and Dave Brouse Jr.

Heats for the 23 late models went to Dickson, Frye and Friese with Chris Casner setting fast time in time trials with a lap of 18.804 seconds.

Zearfoss saw two red flags and two yellows slow his race winning pace in the 410 sprint car main.

The first caution flag unfurled with three laps recorded when Doug Esh looped his car in the fourth corner while trying to avoid a collision with Mike Wagner as the pair raced for fifth.

Esh rejoined at the rear and eventually came back to finish eighth.

The ensuing restart saw Aaron Ott get sideways in the second turn, collecting Jimmy Seger who turned over as Ott righted his car and drove away.

TJ Stutts took second from Tyler Bear on the restart and would follow Zearfoss the rest of the distance.

At the halfway point Zearfoss held a 4.858 second lead over Stutts however a red with three laps to go stopped the pace again, this time for Curt Stroup who turned over after slamming into the inside first turn barrier.

The restart gave Stutts a chance at a flyer but Zearfoss was just too far around to complete the slider, instead forcing Stutts to ride home second by .449 seconds.

Rick Lafferty took third from Mike Wagner on that final restart with Wagner ending up fourth and Aaron Ott fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Tyler Bear, Blane Heimbach, Doug Esh, Logan Wagner and Kevin Nouse.

Heats went to Steve Buckwalter, Esh and Zearfoss.

Shaun Miller started second in the 18-lap econo late model main and held off Eric Irvin for the win after Irvin chased him for the entire distance.

Todd Snook took third at the finish after moving into the spot with three laps to go.

Tim Fedder and JR Toner completed the top five while sixth through 10th went to Derrick Garman, Tim Krape, Andrew Shoop, Garrett Gray and Jason Davis.

Twin heats went to Miller and Krape.

LUCAS WOLFE CLAIMS $5,000 TOP PRIZE IN LEFFLER ENERGY 410 SPRINT CAR SPRING CHAMPIONSHIP;

Halligan holds off Shearer for 358 sprint car win

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 4/15/2017 –Lucas Wolfe grabbed the lead at the outset from polesitter Greg Hodnett and led every lap to claim the $5,000 top prize in Saturday’s Leffler Energy Spring Championship for 410 sprint cars at Lincoln Speedway.

Despite torrid racing in behind, none of the heavy hitters were able to catch the Michael Barshinger-owned Embee & Son #24 as Wolfe claimed his fourth career Lincoln win.

Time trials, qualifying, and an inversion draw put Hodnett and Wolfe on the front row, with last week’s winner Gerard McIntyre, Jr. and Billy Dietrich on row two, and Danny Dietrich and five-time champ Brian Montieth on row three. Row four was just as impressive, with defending champ Alan Krimes and Chad Trout.

Montieth was the hard charger through the mid stages of the race, getting around Danny Dietrich with six laps to go and closing on the winner in lapped traffic at the end.

“It’s certainly important we have a good opportunity to start way up,” said Wolfe in victory lane, “These time trial races normally play into my hands and give me a good opportunity. I’ve been able to capitalize on them the last couple of years. It’s fortunate to start the season here this way.”

“We’ve been pretty competitive I thought, but things just haven’t gone right,” said Wolfe, “It was good to put a whole night together. Obviously, there’s tremendous competition there at the front on these types of races, so the start was certainly critical. Both Brian and Danny have been good here all year, and have a lot of laps and wins here, so I’m enjoying the opportunity to run here a little more and hopefully, be able to keep this amount of competitiveness going and move forward and be strong all year.”

Third through fifth behind Wolfe and Montieth were Danny Dietrich, Hodnett, and Krimes. Sixth through tenth were McIntyre, 13th-starting Tyler Ross, Trout, Robbie Kendall, and 18th-starting Kyle Moody.

Heats for the 410 Sprints were won by Montieth, Krimes, and Trout, with Freddie Rahmer winning the consolation after failing to qualify in his heat and missed the inversion. Fast time in time trials over the 28-car field was set by Freddie Rahmer with a one-lap time of 13.391-seconds (100.814 MPH).

Like Wolfe, Jeff Halligan drove to his fourth career Lincoln win in the 20-lap “358” sprint car feature.

The event included an 11-car melee in turn two of lap seven when Wyatt Hinkle and Adrian Shaffer made contact, sending Hinkle into a spin and collecting ten other cars. Shaffer was able to keep moving and was placed third for the restart. While he had his hands full over the remainder of the event with tenth-starting and defending champ Chandler Leiby, Halligan was busy trying to hold off the race-long challenges of early race leader Brent Shearer.

Shearer started fourth and led the first two laps before Halligan claimed the lead on a lap three restart. Though Halligan led the rest of the way, Shearer wouldn’t go away, and crossed a close second.

Third through fifth were Shaffer, Leiby, and Cody Fletcher. Sixth through tenth were 14th-starting Kyle Denmyer, Matt Findley, Ashley Cappetta, Todd Rittenhouse, Jr., and Steve Wilbur.

Heats for the 26 358 Sprints were won by Shaffer, Phil Walter, and Halligan, with Trey Hivner winning the consolation.

Next Saturday, April 22nd, Lincoln Speedway will hold a 3-division show featuring the 410 Sprints, 358 sprints, and Central PA Legends at 7 PM. Gates open at 5 PM.

PRS 2017 – 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

MRN's Winged Nation To Broadcast Live At Port Royal Weikert Memorial Weekend May 27/28

4/15/17

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Motor Racing Network’s hit TV show and podcast Winged Nation is headed to historic Port Royal Speedway on May 27 and 28 as part of the Bob Weikert Memorial race weekend.

Co-hosts Steve Post and Ashley Stremme will be on location at “The Speed Palace” in Central Pennsylvania broadcasting two shows on stage behind the grandstands from 5-6pm ET prior to each night’s races.

Winged Nation will not only be seen by the live racing audience, but can also be heard anywhere around the world on MRN.com and the free MRN App.

“Memorial Day weekend has the Indianapolis 500 and the Coca Cola 600”, said Post.

“But if you’re a dirt track or sprint car fan, the Bob Weikert Memorial is the event you want to attend. Ashley and I can’t wait to bring Winged Nation to Port Royal Speedway. There is nothing like doing the show in front of passionate race fans.”

For co-host Ashley Stremme the trip means heading back to place she calls home.

The current Mrs. United States is from Mifflintown, PA, just a couple miles away from the historic Juniata County Fairgrounds, home to Port Royal Speedway. She grew up watching her Dad race sprint cars around the famous half-mile dirt track

“I am so happy to be heading home and bringing Winged Nation to the great Port Royal fans”, said Stremme.

“The Bob Weikert Memorial is one of the premiere sprint car races in the world and to be a part of it is going to be so much fun.”

Winged Nation, now in its sixth season, is streamed live each Tuesday from 12 to 12:30 p.m. (EDT) exclusively at www.MRN.com. It also can be seen Saturdays at 9:30 a.m. (EDT) on MAVTV Motorsports Network.

The show was voted 2017 Media Member of the Year award by the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame, an honor they have won for five straight years.

 

 

Dewease Scores 86th Win In Williams Grove Sprints,

Shaffer gets fourth 358 opener in a row

4/14/17

Mechanicsburg – Lance Dewease scored big on Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway, taking the 25-lap 410 sprint car main in his first appearance of the year at the track to boost his career win total there to 86 which is just four wins shy of the all time win mark at the historic oval.

In the 358 sprint main it was Adrian Shaffer taking the season opener for the division at the track which turned out to be his fourth victory in a row in the Williams Grove lidlifter for the 358s.

Danny Dietrich drew the pole to start the 410 sprint car main and after a strong showing in his heat, Dietrich may have been poised to run off with the victory but Dewease had other thoughts.

After starting fourth in the field, Dewease streaked around the cars of Steve Buckwalter and Alan Krimes in the first corner of the opening lap to be along side Dietrich for control in the second corner.

Dietrich tried to hold Dewease back and pulled ahead for a lap or so but to no avail as the Fayetteville flyer drove through the middle of the turns to net control on the third circuit.

After getting control, Dewease pulled away from Dietrich and was just entering the backmarkers on the ninth tour when the races first caution flag unfurled.

Dewease got away again on the restart and was again poised to enter traffic with eight laps to go when TJ Stutts brought out the red flag after a tumble on the backstretch.

Dietrich could do nothing with Dewease at the new green as he again jetted away, this time to the victory that he took by 2.457 seconds at the finish.

With his eyes set on the top prize of becoming the all time Williams Grove Speedway winner, Dewease said in victory lane that his next try at a Williams Grove win will be in two weeks when the All Stars invade for the running of the Tommy Hinnershitz Classic.

Following Dietrich across the line at the finish was a very competitive Freddie Rahmer, Alan Krimes and Steve Buckwalter.

Sixth through 10th went to Mark Smith, Doug Esh, Chad Trout, Lucas Wolfe and Greg Hodnett

Heats for the 36 cars in action went to Krimes, Rahmer, Dietrich and Esh with the consolation going to Matt Campbell.

Shaffer wired the field for the win in the 358 sprint car main to open the class’ season at the track.

Matt Findley trailed Shaffer for the entire distance but was never able to challenge.

Eric Parker moved from 10th starting spot to finish third followed by Brie Hershey and Doug Hammaker.

Sixth thorugh 10th went to Jared Esh, Kevin Nouse, Jordan Givler, Chris Frank and Nyle Berkes.

Heats went to Troy Wagaman Jr. and Doug Hammaker.

OWINGS TAKES TRAIL-WAY SEASON OPENER FOR 358 SPRINTS; MARRIOTT WINS 270 MICRO FEATURE; CHANEY HOLDS OFF PASCOE IN CENTRAL PA LEGENDS; CARROLL TAKES LEAD ON FINAL TURN TO CLAIM LIMITED STOCK MAIN

HANOVER, PA (4/14/2017) – “It’s nice to win the first time out.”

So said Steve Owings after claiming the opening night win in Friday’s 25-lap “358” sprint car feature.

Owings started third, slid under race-long leader Dwight Leppo for the front spot exiting turn two of lap 20, and scored his 11th career Trail-Way win in a non-stop time of six minutes, seven seconds.

“Dwight drove a hell-of-a race,” said Owings upon exiting the Rodney Valentine Westminster Lawn/B&D Truck Hoist #35 in victory lane, “Thank goodness for lapped traffic. I don’t think I could have caught him without it.”

Leppo, who led the first 19 laps, crossed second, followed by fifth-starting Isaac Sneeringer, J.B. Cunningham, and polesitter Cody Fletcher, who drew a “0” pill for the inversion after winning the first heat.

Sixth through tenth were defending track champ and hard charger David Holbrook (who started 11th), Steve Storrie, Wyatt Hinkle, Joe Trone, Jr., and Austin Kirby.

“We’re going to be back in the 410’s tomorrow night (at Lincoln), but we’ll be back here as much as we can,” said Owings, “I love Trail-Way. If didn’t like this, you shouldn’t be here.”

Heats for the 14 “358” sprint cars were won by Fletcher and Leppo.

Brian Marriott came from tenth starting spot to win the Mason Dixon 270cc micro-sprint feature. It was Marriott’s sixth career Trail-Way win.

Joe Long, Jr. started on the pole and led the first nine laps before Marriott made the race-winning pass on a tenth-lap restart. Jim Young, Michael Boer, and Mike Rutherford rounded out the top five.

Qualifiers for the 18 micros were won by Marriott and Rutherford.

Mason Chaney scored the win in a wild 20-lap Central PA Legends feature that saw him lead laps two through four, and lap six through 20. Polesitter Bill Diehl led the fist lap and Hayden Pascoe led lap five in a multi-car battle at the front of the field. In the end, Chaney crossed .34 seconds ahead of Pascoe, with Diehl, Justice Forbes, and Chad Earnst rounding out the top five.

Stephen Wurtzer received the Legends hard charger award ($50 gift card to Advanced Auto Parts) provided by Brian Blank. Wurtzer started 21st and finished 12th. Heats for the 23 Legends were won by Chaney, Pascoe, and Diehl.

The 15-lap limited stock feature was also a wild one, with Matt Chronister dropping from the field while leading on lap 11 and brother Jason Chronister slowing while leading on the final turn.

Picking up his ninth career win was Robbie Carroll, who also won by .34 seconds. Chronister was able to hang on to second, with Justin Wagaman, Charles Millender, and Terry Hartlaub completing the top five.

Qualifiers for the 20 limited stocks were won by Chad Weaver and Jason Chronister.

Next Friday, April 21, 2017, Trail-Way Speedway hosts the Hoosier Tire Mid-Atlantic 358 Sprint Cars along with the Limited Stocks, Street Stocks and 600 Micro Sprints. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. with heats beginning at 7:45 p.m. It will be the first of two consecutive “Student Night’s.” Present your student identification at the admission gate to receive free general admission.

SUNDAY, APRIL 9, 2017 SUSQUEHANNA SPEEDWAY RACE RESULTS

LOGAN WAGNER UPSET WINNER IN BAPS 410 OPENER! Doug Hammaker Impressive in 358's

By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA…4/9/17

It’s no secret that Logan Wagner hasn’t had much success at Susquehanna Speedway in a 410 Sprint car.

So what does a driver do about that? Go back and put on a show.

And that’s exactly what the young Harrisonville, PA driver did in Sunday night’s 30-lap BAPS Auto Paints and Supplies 410 Sprint Series feature.

“First race here last year, I wadded it up on the opening going into one and the last time we were here, we dumped it in three and ended up wadding it up again and everybody said why are you going back to Susky, every time you go there you wreck and I said I’m going there to win and we did, it was badass man,” stated Wagner after his popular upset win and first ever 410 sprint car win at the York Haven oval.

Not only did Wagner win, but he made a move on a lap 16 restart that saw him drive by both leader Doug Esh and runner-up Greg Hodnett as the trio raced into the first turn. That move was the race winning move and Wagner would never look back enroute to the $3,200 payday.

Kyle Reinhardt grabbed the lead early in the event and held the point until a lap five restart, when Esh got into him in turn two sending Reinhardt’s No. 91 into a series of flips.

Esh would leave until the lap 16 restart when Wagner took the lead as eighth starting Greg Hodnett moved by Esh on lap 17 and was racing a car length behind Wagner when his right rear tire exploded with 23 laps in.

Wagner again held the point on the restart, keeping Esh and Lance Dewease at bay and as Esh and Dewease battled, Wagner drove off aboard his All Things Automotive #7W sprinter to score the win.

“We’re negative five grand in the bank account for racing and the only option is to win,” Wagner said.

Wagner drew the #1 envelope in victory lane and was presented another $500 bonus from race sponsor Wintermyers Auto Salvage. Wagner donated half of that bonus to Reinhardt for his “bad luck.”

Esh finished second ahead of Dewease, Brock Zearfoss and Freddie Rahmer with Aaron Ott, 21st starter Lucas Wolfe, Brian Montieth, Alan Krimes and Chad Trout.

Ott, Krimes and Dewease won heats for the 28 410 Sprints. Tyler Ross was the consolation winner.

Doug Hammaker muscled his way around leader Chandler Leiby on a lap 14 restart and drove to the win in the 25-lap 358 Sprint car feature.

Leiby led the first 13 laps from his pole starting spot but Hammaker, who started third got the upper hand on the restart for the race winning move.

Leiby settled for the runner-up finish ahead of Kevin Nouse, Steve Owings and 13th starting Brent Shearer with Todd Gracey, Cody Fletcher, Chris Frank, Jeff Halligan and Dwight Leppo completing the top ten.

Heats for the 29 358 Sprints were won by Gracey, Steven Drevicki and Nouse with JB Cunningham winning the consolation.

SHULTZ WIRES FIELD FOR OPENING DAY 360 SPRINT CAR VICTORY; RINE SHINES IN LATE MODEL OPENER;SLANKER SCORES PRO STOCK THRILLER

SELINSGROVE, Pa. -- The gates swung open for the 55th consecutive season opener at Selinsgrove Speedway Saturday night presented by Insinger Performance Sunoco Race Fuels/Stinger Racing Alcohol.

Carlise native Jason Shultz took the $2,500-to-win opening 360 Sprint Car Spring Showdown event that was co-sanctioned with Empire Super Sprints. Danville’s Jeff Rine claimed his second opening night win in a row in the Late Model main event and Tommy Slanker of York was the Pro Stock winner.

Shultz led the field for the first 16 laps under the green flag while trying to maneuver around lap traffic. Schultz had his hands full when he came upon two lap cars battling side by side while Davie Franek closed in from the second spot. Franek wasn’t the only one closing in on the leaders. Chad Layton had moved into third and was also closing in on the lead duo. A yellow flag flew on Lap 16 that settled the action. Shultz used the open race track to open the lead back up on the field before action slowed again for a lap 19 yellow flag.

At that point in the race Nate Snyder was running the quickest laps in the field and was into the fourth spot. Franek was stout on the next restart staying right with Shultz into turn one. Snyder also continued his charge moving into third spot.Although Shultz was challenged, he was able to pull away in the final two laps to secure the victory over Franek and Snyder. Layton was fourth and Larry Kelleher finished out the top five. Steve Collins, Derek Locke, Colby Womer, Troy Betts, and Ryan Kissinger rounded out the top ten finishers. Heat races went to Larry Kelleher and Nate Snyder for the Sprint Cars.

Bryan Bernheisel won the heat race for the Late Models. The redraw did not fall into Bernheisel’s favor with a draw of four. Donnie Schick benefited by starting on the pole and leading the race early. Schick was using a different line on the outside of the speedway than the drivers chasing him, Steve Campbell and Jeff Rine.

As Schick came upon lap traffic he had to make a quick decision that paid off by clearing the first lap car. He would not fair as well on the second car to go a lap down. Schick used the inside line along with Campbell. As if Rine could see the future he slid to the outside of the race track to go by the top two into the top spot. Rine struggled a little in dirty air as he dealt with some lap traffic which allowed Campbell to again close, but Rine would clear the lap car and drive to his second opening night win in a row.

Campbell, Bernheisel, Tony Adams, and Hayes Mattern made up the top five across the line. Meade Hahn, Dan Green, Schick, Ernie Millon, and Nate Long crossed the line as the top ten.

Brandon Moser brought the field to the green flag in the A&A Auto Stores season opener before his car stumbled and handed the race lead over to Shawn Lawton. Lawton raced in the lead just ahead of Tommy Slanker. Slanker closed the point paying races out with a victory last season and looked to carry that momentum into victory lane in the season opener for 2017.

Slanker made his move on lap five on the outside of the race leader Lawton. Lawton stayed in hot pursuit of the race leader until the closing laps when Lawton began to reel the leader back in. As the white flag flew Lawton had pulled even with the race leader before a red flag flew for John Shock who had an engine fire on the backstretch. Shock was okay.

Slanker sat ten feet shy of the finish line, but now he had to hold off the field in a one lap shootout. On the restart, third place running Kyle Bachman drove to the inside of Lawton and Slanker drifted away. Lawton made his final bid out of turn four, but fell just short as Slanker claimed the opening night win after finishing second in the opening event a year ago. Lawton came home in second followed by Bachman, John Fowler, and Moser. Dustin Snook came from last to finish sixth just ahead of Bill Conrad, Nate Stroup, Curtis Lawton, and John Shock. AJ Hoffman and Kyle Bachman won heat races for the Pro Stocks.

In memory of late Pro Stock driver Jim Payne the leader on the fourth lap of the feature, Shawn Lawton, and fourth place finisher John Fowler received bonus money. Payne raced the number 4 for many years at the speedway and passed away last fall.

Cold temperatures kept a few teams hibernating at the Season Opener. Next week at Selinsgrove Speedway the 360 Sprint Cars will be back in action along with the Super Late Models and the Pro Stocks. Start time will remain at 6 p.m.

GENE KNAUBS DOMINATES FOR 358 LATE MODEL WIN Newlin takes 305 Sprints, McClane Gets Extreme Stocks and Chaney is Legends Winner By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA…4/8/17

Put Gene Knaub on the pole of any race and nine chances out of ten, the race will be for the runner-up spot.

That’s exactly what happened in Saturday night’s Bernheisel Race Cars 358 Late Model main at Susquehanna Speedway as the Dover driver drew the pole position for the 25-lap feature and led green to checkered to pick up his first win of the season. It was also Knaub’s first start of the year at the York Haven track.

Knaub was slowed by six cautions during the event, including a late race yellow with 19 laps complete but that didn’t slow him down from becoming the third different winner in as many races this season, driving under the checkered flag ahead of point leader and defending track champ Randy Christine, Jr. who started eighth. Chase Billet moved up from 10th to finish third with Daulton Bigler earning the ArtWerks Hard Charger Award after advancing from 15th to fourth. Fifth went to Sean Merkel followed by Justin Ehrhart, Sam Rial, Cory Merkel, Dave Latsha and Matt Murphy.

Heats winners for the 18 car field were Taylor Farlling and Knaub.

Zach Newlin picked up the season opening win for the Freedmont® Mortgage Lending PASS IMCA Sprints.

Mark Watkins set the early pace, leading until a lap seven red flag for Nick Sweigart, who flipped.

Under the red flag, Watkins’ team made a wing adjustment and was disqualified from the race by PA Sprint Club officials.

Newlin assumed command held on despite many more caution flags during the 20 lap feature.

Tyler Reeser came from his 19th staring spot to finish second earning the Artwerks Hard Charger with Ken Duke, Jr., Kyle Ganoe and Stephanie Dodson completing the top five finishers. Sixth through tenth were Dave Brown, Scott Ellerman, Alex Potosky, Billy Ney and Jaremi Hanson.

Rick Stief, Darren Miller and Ellerman won heats for the 27 305 Sprints. Reeser was the consolation winner.

Patrick McClane and defending track champ Alex Updegraff exchanged the top spot several times before McClane got the upper hand with 11 laps complete and drove to his first win of the year in thee 20-lap Superior Homes Extreme Stock feature. Updegraff settled for the runner-up finish ahead of Keith Bissinger, Kyle Emig and Ronnie Buck.

Michael Smith was the single heat winner for the 11 car field.

Mason Chaney took the lead from Harlon Leppo on lap four of the 20-lap ServiceMaster Clean Central PA Legends feature and never looked back in taking his first win of the season.

Chaney survived five caution periods before the win over Scott Houdeshell, Jeff Herbst, 15th starting Rick Hartwig and 11th starting Chris Transeau with 24th starting Chandler Pagotta, Scott Smith, Justin Mitchell, Bill Diehl and Leppo completing the top ten finishers.

Hayden Pascoe, Travis McClelland, Bob Stough and Travis Perry won heats for the 35 Legends with Trent Yoder winning the consolation.

Esh Goes Two For Two In Port Royal Sprints, Lupfer Wins Late Models

Snook and Renninger split support stock cars

4/8/17

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Doug Esh went two for two on Saturday night at Port Royal Speedway, claiming his second sprint car win in as many weeks at the track, besting Greg Hodnett both times for the victory.

Elsewhere, Mike Lupfer was in the right place at the right time to go on and record his first win of the season in the super late model main after having raced his way into second behind leader Dylan Yoder.

And in the econo late model main it was Todd Snook taking the win while Herm Renninger made a return to racing after several years off the track to take the xtreme stock main.

Fourth starter Esh of Lancaster blasted right through the middle of the front row when the green flag appeared in the 410 sprint car main to blister by Ryan Taylor and Dale Blaney for immediate control.

Esh then just rocketed away with the lead, entering the backmarkers on the fifth tour.

Blaney settled into second with Hodnett third during the early going but the pace was slowed with 10 laps away for a stopped Logan Wagner, who had been running in fifth.

Hodnett finally muscled his way around Blaney with 13 laps to go and set his sights on leader Esh but Esh again was way out in front and again working the rear of the field.

However Esh’s fortunes changed a bit with seven laps to go when he slammed the frontstretch wall, allowing Hodnett to gain some ground.

With his mount still underneath him, Esh did his best to stay ahead of Hodnett during the late stages albeit a faltering advantage as the laps ticked down.

In the end, Hodnett was 1.469 seconds behind as the pair crossed the finish line. The win was the ninth of Esh’s career at the Port Royal oval.

Blaney rode home third followed by Ryan Taylor, Dylan Cisney, TJ Stutts, Steve Buckwalter, Aaron Ott, Mike Wagner and AJ Flick.

Heats for the 30 sprint cars went to Hodnett, Blaney and Taylor with Kody Lehman taking the consolation race. Fast time in time trials went to Stutts with a lap of 16.561 seconds.

Matt Parks took the lead from the pole in the 22-lap super late model main followed by Dylan Yoder on the first lap.

Yoder immediately challenged for the lead and raced back and forth with Parks for control before finally securing the spot on the sixth tour and driving away from the rest of the pack.

For the third week in a row Yoder was leading the late model main, looking as if he was headed to the win and for the third week in a row, mechanical failure ended his bid for a victory.

The red flag appeared on the 12th circuit when flames erupted under Yoder’s hood, handing the lead over to Mike Lupfer.

Lupfer had started sixth in the field and raced his way to the front, taking second from Parks with 12 laps to go.

Parks tried to challenge for the win on the restart but with time, Lupfer was able to pull away for the checkers by .248 seconds over Parks.

Trent Brenneman rode home third followed by Coleby Frye, Andy Haus, Devin Friese, Tim Wilson, Chad Hollenbeck, Dave Brouse Jr., and Tim Smith Jr.

Heats for the 20 late models went to Frye and Brenneman.

Todd Snook wired the field for the win in the 18-lap econo late model feature.

Defending division champion Devin Hart challenged early and late for the win but Snook proved up to the challenge.

After surrendering second to Andrew Yoder, who also challenged Snook for the win, Hart reclaimed the spot during the last several laps only to lose it on the final lap as he made a bid for the lead.

Yoder ended up second followed by Hart, Shaun Miller, Eric Irvin, Tim Krape, Tim Fedder, Derrick Garman, Harold Ranck Jr., and Jared Fulkroad.

Heats went to Hart and Tim Krape.

Herm Renninger took the lead from Daren Rice on the second lap of the 15-lap xtreme stock feature to record the victory over Bill Powell.

The 2004 enduro dash champion at the track, Renninger was away from racing for years before making a comeback in 2017 to win in his debut.

Smith Cope, Walt Peters and Darren Rice rounded out the top five.

MCINTYRE SCORES FIRST LINCOLN WIN SINCE 2015 IN “410” SPRINT CAR MAIN;

Gracey in victory lane for the first time in 19 years; Wayne Dutterer tops street stock field

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 4/8/2017 – Sometimes you have to slow down to go fast. And that’s exactly what Gerard McIntyre, Jr. did to claim his first win of the year in the 25-lap “410” sprint car feature at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

“I wasn’t here (victory lane) at all last year,” reflected McIntyre upon exiting his Weaver’s Body Shop #16 in victory lane, “It make it a lot easier when you have a real good car. And that’s what Dad gave me here tonight. He just did a phenomenal job. I didn’t really have to drive the thing. Anywhere I wanted to go I just kinda’ drove around them.

Handicapping put McIntyre on the outside of row three for the start. Outside front row starter Scott Fisher led the first two laps before fourth-starting Brandon Rahmer took the lead on lap three. McIntyre caught Rahmer for the top spot on lap 16 and led the rest of the way, crossing 2.72 seconds in front of Rahmer.

“Brandon was there on the top where I wanted to be, and I went to the bottom and saw the rubber there,” said the New Oxford driver, “Once I got around him, I slowed down enough to stay on the rubber. I figured that was the best place to be. I was complacent anyway.”

Third through fifth were Matt Campbell (who returned from a vicious crash the week before), 11th-starting Danny Dietrich, and Brian Montieth, who came from 20th starting spot. Fisher settled for sixth, and was followed by Tyler Ross, Jim Siegel, Alan Krimes, and 16th-starting Lucas Wolfe.

“I can’t tell you how much this win means,” said McIntyre in victory lane, “My dad did a really great job tonight. I thought he really screwed it up, but apparently not, huh?”

Heats for the 28 410 Sprints were won by Chase Dietz, Krimes, and Danny Dietrich, with Ryan Smith winning the consolation.

Former 410 sprint car regular and six-time career winner Todd Gracey scored his first Lincoln win in 19 years in the 20-lap 358 sprint car feature. In only his second time out in Evan Taylor’s Blue Ribbon Exteriors #19G, Gracey inherited the lead when polesitter and race-long leader Brie Hershey came to a stop with motor problems in turn two of lap 11.

Gracey was challenged by Troy Wagaman, Jr. on the restart, but eventually pulled away for his first-ever 358 sprint car win. Wagaman settled for second, with Jared Esh, Steve Wilbur, and Cody Fletcher rounding out the top five.

Doug Hammaker, Adrian Shaffer, Todd Rittenhouse, Jr., Phil Walter, and Brent Shearer completed the top ten.

Heats for the 26 358 Sprints were won by Hammaker, Gracey, and Rittenhouse, with Ashley Cappetta winning the consolation.

Wayne Dutterer, who had one career win in the Lincoln thundercars of yesteryear, scored the win in the 20-lap street stock feature. Dutterer, who started fifth, led the first four laps before Mike Potts came from his ninth starting spot to take the lead. Like Hershey in the 358 sprints, Potts dropped from the field while leading, handing the top spot back to Dutterer on lap 10.

Dutterer held off Danny Beard and Joey Hoffer over the second half of the race to score his first Lincoln street stock win. Fourth and fifth behind Beard and Hoffer were Jim Rost and 12th-starting Chris Heller.

Heats for the 24 Street Stocks were won by Heller, Hoffer, and Danny Beard.

Next Saturday, April 15th, Lincoln Speedway moves to 7 PM start-time with LEFFLER ENERGY NIGHT featuring the 410 Sprint Spring Championship, paying $5,000 to win and $400 to start, and a regular program of 358 sprints. Time Trials will be held for the 410 sprints starting at 7 PM. Gates open at 5 PM.

JIM STRAUSBAUGH MEMORIAL RACE PLANNED AT SUSQUEHANNA SPEEDWAY

By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA ..4/4/17 Jim Strausbaugh was a longtime staple around the Central Pennsylvania sprint car world.

The noted mechanic and car owner passed away late last year and his memory will live on thanks to Susquehanna Speedway.

Susquehanna Speedway will honor Strausbaugh on Saturday, April 29 when the PASS/IMCA 305 Sprints will compete in the Jim Strausbaugh Bald Hill Shootout.

The race will also serve as an extra paying event for the Freedmont® Mortgage Lending PASS/IMCA 305 Sprint cars at the York Haven oval as drivers will go after a $1,000 to win top prize with $300 going to just start the feature event.

“The PASS/IMCA series has been a great cornerstone of Susquehanna Speedway the last couple years and we wanted to put together a big race for these guys to shoot for,” stated track General Manager Kolten Gouse.

Not only will event feature a larger purse posted for the feature, two drivers that finish inside the top ten in the feature will have a chance to go home with an extra $500 each, courtesy of Wintermyer’s Auto Salvage. The winner of the feature event will draw two random positions and those drivers will each receive the bonus money. So there is even extra incentive for drivers to put their race car inside the top ten in this big event!

Ray Heller will have two legendary cars that will be displayed for race fans to view. The cars account for many wins at Susquehanna Speedway and surrounding tracks in the area.

Joining the 305 Sprint cars on the April 29 program will be the ARDC Midgets, Street Stocks and Extreme Stocks.

SATURDAY, APRIL 1, 2017 SUSQUEHANNA SPEEDWAY RACE RESULTS

SCOTT DELLINGER RETURNS TO SUSQUEHANNA VICTORY LANE Garlock Takes Mason Dixon 358’s, Diehl Scores in Street Stocks and Updegraff Wins Extreme Stocks By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA…4/1/17 Last season, Scott Dellinger only visited victory lane one time at Susquehanna Speedway. That win came late in the season in the Sportsman 100.

Dellinger isn’t waiting that long this season as the Lewisberry driver tracked down week one winner Scott Geesey during the late laps to win Saturday night’s Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman feature.

Aboard his Dellinger Auto Body, AAI Recycling, Reeser’s Soft Serve Ice Cream, G.A. Smith Towing No. 30 machine, Dellinger started 10th on the grid and worked this way to the front, coming on strong in the waning laps of the 25-lap feature. Dellinger tracked down leader Geesey and after several attempts to take the lead, Dellinger made the race winning move with 23 laps complete and drove away for the win.

Jay Fannasy led the first seven laps before giving way to Geesey, who held the point until lap 22 when Dellinger took over.

Geesey settled for the runner-up finish trailed by Fannasy, ninth starting and defending track champion Russ Mitten and Mike Enders with 20th starting Doug Dodson, Paul Miller, Kenny Edkin, Gregg Foster and Troy Hockenberry completing the top ten finishers.

Geesey, Davey Walsh and Fannasy won heats for the 28-car field while Edkin was the consolation winner.

. Three Springs’ racer Rance Garlock led flag to flag to post the win in the Bernheisel Race Cars Mason Dixon Shootout Series 358 Late Model feature.

Starting on the pole, Garlock was never seriously challenged in his No. 19 late model and defeated Brad Shank, who finished in the runner-up spot for the second consecutive week. Andrew Yoder raced home third ahead of Robbie Black and Eric Irvin.

Rounding out the top ten were Justin Ehrhart, Brian Shuey, ArtWerks Hard Charger Derrik Quade up from 23rd starting spot, Cameron Benyou and Devin Frey.

Shank, Shuey, Garlock and Black were heat winners for the strong field of of 34 cars for the Mason Dixon Shootout. Todd Snook won the consolation.

Greg Diehl became the third and final leader in the 20-lap Morgan Paving Aqua Fun Pools Street Stock feature to pick up his first win of the season.

Defending champ Mike Potts led the first 10 laps before suffering a flat tire and having to pit. That turned the lead over to Dalton Frye who held the point until lap 16 when Diehl, who started 10th took command of the event and raced to the win ahead of Frye (best career finish), Artwerks Hard Charger Eric Tripp up from 15th, Jim Jacobs and Matt Adams.

Scott Thunberg, Diehl and Kevin Sigler won heats for the 25 street stocks.

In defense of his 2016 track championship, Alex Updegraff led all 20 laps of the Superior Homes Extreme Stock feature to take the first checkered flag of the season.

He defeated Patrick McClane, Ronnie Buck, Kyle Emig and Keith Bissinger.

McClane was the lone heat race winner for the 12 car field.

Susquehanna Speedway will see action two times this coming weekend with two racing shows.

Saturday, April 8 will feature the first appearance of the season for the Freedmont® Mortgage Funding PASS/IMCA 305 Sprints, along with the Precise Racing 358 Late Models, Superior Homes Xtreme Stocks and ServiceMaster Clean Central PA Legends. Racing begins at 6PM.

Esh, Rine And Reeser Win At Port Royal As Track Records Fall

4/1/17

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Doug Esh outran Greg Hodnett to win the 25-lap sprint car feature at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night, holding Hodnett off as the pair raced in and out of traffic at lightning fast speeds.

In the 22-lap super late model main it was Danville’s Jeff Rine taking the 14th victory of his career at the track, overtaking Devin Friese for the win.

And the 18-lap 305 sprint main went to Tyler Reeser in what was a crash-filled event.

Esh’s run to victory was anything but easy from his pole starting spot as no less than three restarts took place with Hodnett glued to his tail on the extremely fast speedway surface.

The leader hit the backmarkers on the fourth lap of the main just before the first caution flag unfurled and after the restart Esh again hit traffic on the 10th tour.

And the two leaders were darting through traffic when Esh narrowly avoided disaster in the fourth corner when he came up on a suddenly slowing Eric Tomecek, all but looping the car in evasive action.

Another restart with 11 laps to go after Ryan Smith stopped on the track set up the final run to the checkers with Hodnett leaving absolutely no breathing room for Esh.

The pair again entered lapped traffic with five laps to go with Esh holding just a few tenths of a second advantage over Hodnett.

At no time during the race was Esh’s advantage more than .7 seconds over Hodnett and even those few tenths evaporated as the pair shot off of the fourth corner for the checkers when Esh swung wide in traffic allowing Hodnett to close to within .101 seconds as the pair crossed the finish line.

The win was the eighth of Esh’s career at the track.

Rick Lafferty rode home third followed by Aaron Ott and Steve Buckwalter.

Sixth through 10th went to Ryan Taylor, Cole Duncan, Brock Zearfoss, Logan Wagner and Dylan Cisney.

Heats went to Esh, Smith and Hodnett.

Esh set a new one-lap track record in the first heat race with a mark of 15.011 seconds while Hodnett set a new eight-lap track record in his heat with a time of 2:02.587.

Devin Friese took the lead at the start of the super late model main over Tim Wilson while eventual winner Rine started fifth in the field.

The pace was slowed for the first time with three laps away finding Rick Singleton now up to second with Wilson and Rine following.

Singleton briefly challenged for the lead on the restart but when he brushed across Friese’s rear bumper, destroying his momentum, Rine motored by on the inside for second on the sixth tour.

Friese held Rine at bay for several laps from that point on as Rine consistently took jabs for the top spot to Friese’s inside.

But then in his first and only attempt at an outside pass for the lead, Rine easily zoomed into control in the third turn to check out on the rest of the field.

He took the win by 3.329 seconds over Friese followed by Singleton, Darryl Hills and Coleby Frye.

Sixth through 10th went to Wilson, Justin Kann, Mike Lupfer, Steve Campbell and Andy Haus.

Heats went to Singleton, Wilson and Friese with Singleton setting a new one-lap track record in his qualifier with a lap of 17.728 seconds.

The crash-laden 305 sprint main saw Tyler Reeser wire the field after starting the race in fourth.

Cale Reigle took second spot on the third lap but failed to snare the lead despite several attempts at gaining the top spot.

Red flag stoppages marred the event on the second, fifth and 10th lap.

Reeser took the win by 3.229 seconds over Reigle, Mark Watkins, Drew Ritchey and Colby Dice.

Sixth through 10th went to Zach Newlin, Reed Thompson, Kassidy Kreitz, Andrew Hake and Fred Arnold with only those 10 cars finishing the event.

Heats went to Jeff Miller, Nathan Gramley and Thompson.

Reeser set a new one-lap track record in the feature with a lap of 17.583 seconds, overtaking a new mark set by Miller in the first heat race.

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Sat., April 8, 2017 - 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints, and Street Stocks (Racing @ 6 PM)

Sat., April 15, 2017 - LEFFLER ENERGY NIGHT: 410 Sprint SPRING CHAMPIONSHIP and 358 Sprints (Time Trials @ 7 PM)

MONTIETH EDGES DIETZ IN WILD FINAL LAPS BATTLE TO CLAIM LINCOLN WIN;

Hammaker catches Denmyer to claim 7th career Lincoln 358 sprint victory; Justin Cullum scores first in All-American Outlaws

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 4/1/2017 – When Brian Montieth became the third leader of the race on lap 21 Saturday, everyone figured that would be game over in the 25-lap 410 sprint car feature at Lincoln Speedway.

But Chase Dietz didn’t get the memo. Dietz, who started seventh two rows behind third-starting Montieth, caught Robbie Kendall for second a lap later, and drove around Montieth for the lead several times in mid-lap, but couldn’t make it stick at the line each time by. On the final lap coming off turn four, Dietz went to the top and pulled alongside the Jerry Parrish-owned #21, but couldn’t make the pass, crossing a foot (.029 seconds) beside him at the checkered.

“He was better than me on the bottom, and that was my only shot,” said Montieth in victory lane, “If he held the bottom there in three and four when I got under him, HE would be sitting here now. It was fun!”

“I tried not to dirty him too bad there in three and four and made it as wide as I could,” continued Montieth, “He had to run up there in that little bit of dirtiness, and it was just a drag race. I knew it was gonna be close.”

Handicapping placed Tim Glatfelter on the pole for the start and he led the first eight laps. Second-starting Kendall chased him throughout the early stages and got by into the lead on lap nine. Montieth ran third the whole way until Cory Haas spun on lap 17. Over the next four laps, Montieth began to kick in, putting pressure on Glatfelter for second and then after leader Kendall.

“Scott was telling me to get up on the wheel there,” said Montieth, “With the amount of rain we had yesterday, I expected this track to be choppier than what it is,” said Montieth, “It’s actually pretty racey. The older I get…it’s getting more tough.”

Third through fifth were Kendall, 11th-starting Lucas Wolfe, and Glatfelter. Sixth through tenth were Alan Krimes, Danny Dietrich, Jim Siegel, Billy Dietrich, and 18th-starting Bill Balog.

Heats for the 25 410 Sprints were won by Montieth, Krimes, and Siegel, with Kyle Reinhardt winning the consolation.

SCOTT GEESEY OPENS 2017 SEASON WITH IMPRESSIVE SUPER SPORTSMAN WIN Randy Christine, Jr., Eddie Richards and Scott Houdeshell Share Opening Night Laurels By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA…3/25/17 Scott Geesey made a strong statement in Saturday night’s season opener at Susquehanna Speedway.

After finishing in a tie with Russ Mitten for the 2016 track championship (Mitten was champ based on wins), Geesey drove through the field from his 15th starting spot to secure the opening night win in the 25-lap Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman feature.

Aboard his Kreitzer Excavating, Crredit Connection Auto Sales, Silver Lake Inn, Rumbergers Automotive Service Center No. 41, the Wellsville driver worked his way past leader Paul Miller on the 19th lap and drove off for the feature win.

Miller led first three laps of the feature before giving way to defending track champ Mitten, who led until lap 11 when Miller regained the top spot.

Miller settled for the runner-up finish with Gregg Foster taking third, 19th starting and B-Main winner Scott Dellinger coming through for an impressive fourth with 12th starter Davey Walsh rounding out the top five.

Rich Eichelberger was sixth trailed by Doug Dodson, Mike Enders, Tony Jackson and Kenny Edkin.

Eichelberger, Frankie Herr and Devin Beidel were heat race winners for the 29 Super Sportsman. Dellinger was the B-Main winner.

Herr was a flip victim late in the feature while Beidel saw his race car go up in flames early in the feature. Neither driver was injured.

Randy Christine, Jr. took a big step in defending his 2016 track championship by wiring the field in the 25-lap Bernheisel Race Cars 358 Late Model feature.

By virtue of drawing the pole for the feature, the Manchester driver was never seriously challenged in scoring the opening night win in his No. 74 machine.

Brad Shank ran second the entire distance while Sean Merkel finished third over ninth starter Brian Shuey and Justin Ehrhart.

Chase Billet came home sixth over 18th starter Randy Stroudt, 23rd starter and ArtWerks Hard Charger Cam Zeigler, Charles Potts and Matt Murphy.

Harlon Leppo, Chaney and Stough were Legend heat winners. There were 24 cars pitside.

The 20-lap Morgan Paving./Aqua Fun Pools Street Stock feature had all kinds of action at the front as defending champion Mike Potts led the first 11 laps before pitting with a flat tire.

This turned the lead to Kevin Sigler but Sigler and two more frontrunners were involved in crashes before a lap could be complete.

Eddie Richards, who started eighth assumed command of the feature and would score the win ahead of Potts, who drove back through the field.

Jim Palm started 23rd and finished third earning the ArtWerks Hard Charger ahead of Ryan Smith and Matt Adams with Chad Stine, Doug Barber, Craig Morgan, Daren Rice and David Dietz completing the top ten finishers.

Lynton Jeffrey Invades For Port Royal Sprint Opener Victory

Jason Covert Stuns For Last Lap Late Model Upset, Andrew Yoder Wins Mason Dixon Shootout

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

3/25/17

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Lynton Jeffrey of Prairie City, Iowa, held off Dale Blaney to win Saturday’s 2017 season opener for sprint cars at Port Royal Speedway.

Jeffrey took home $3,500 for the victory after taking the lead early from Rick Lafferty.

In the 35-lap blastoff for super late models, Jason Covert of York pulled off a last lap, last corner stunner to take the $3,000 victory.

And Andrew Yoder of Middleburg scored the $1,000 Mason Dixon Shootout Series event for limited late models to round out the program.

Lafferty and Jeffrey started on the front row of the 410 sprint car main with Lafferty leading the first lap and Jeffrey in his shadow.

Jeffrey pulled the trigger on the second tour to grab command of the field before entering the backmarkers on the ninth lap.

Lafferty chased him into traffic, trying to keep pace before third starter Dale Blaney got around for second on the 17th tour.

Blaney then began slowly reeling in leader Jeffrey and with three to go he took his shot for the win.

He stuffed the Zemco No. 1 sprinter deep into the first corner and briefly took the lead before Jeffrey used the cushion to slingshot back around for the lead as the pair shot onto the backstretch.

And that took the wind out of Blaney’s sails as Jeffrey pulled out to a 1.025 second advantage at the finish to become the 188th different winner of a sprint car main in Port Royal history.

Greg Hodnett got by Lafferty for third with two laps to go, forcing Lafferty to finish fourth with Mike Wagner ending up fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Doug Esh, Brock Zearfoss, Dylan Cisney, Mark Smith and TJ Stutts.

Heats went to Zearfoss and Stutts.

Polesitter Jason Covert took the lead at the start of the super late model main trailed by fourth starter Dylan Yoder on the first lap after Yoder made a two-car pass to get the spot.

Covert held sway with Yoder trying time after time to get into a position that could net him control but it took a restart on the 13th lap to get him the point.

He used the restart to bolt around Covert and take control before getting away with the lead.

However his mount began puffing smoke of some sort as he held the lead and that smoke turned terminal with nine laps to go when it forced him to roll to a stop on the track, wiping out a 2.119 second lead and handing over the point to third starter Kenny Moreland.

Moreland had wrestled second from Gary Stuhler on the 23rd lap with Covert having fallen back to fourth.

Covert got around Stuhler for second as he began to rebound with eight laps to go but as the race wore on to the finish it seemed that Covert was just too far away to make a serious bid for the win.

With two laps to go it still looked that way but just after taking the white flag Covert found enough muscle to pull alongside Moreland as the pair hit the first corner however Moreland had enough momentum to roll back into weak control in the second corner.

But Covert wasn’t done yet and he used the last two corners to race to Moreland’s inside again and the pair exited the fourth corner in a furious race to the finish with Covert edging ahead to the line, taking the win by an amazing .182 seconds.

Moreleand was second followed by Stuhler, Mike Lupfer and Gregg Satterlee.

Sixth through 10th went to Coleby Frye, Rick Singleton, Nick Dickson, Jeff Rine and Trent Brenneman.

Heats for the 32 late models went to Covert, Stuhler, Moreland in a last to first performance, and Yoder. Tim Wilson scored the consolation race.

Tim Krape led the first 10 laps of the 20-lap limited late model main before Andrew Yoder took over after starting third in the field.

Yoder was never challenged for the win after taking control as he ran to a 1.931 second win.

Rance Garlock took second from Krape with five laps to go.

Robbie Black rode home third followed by Krape and Mike Walls.

Sixth through 10th went to Justin Weaver, Shaun Miller, Jim Yoder, Derrick Quade and Devin Hart.

Heats went to Dillan Stake, JR Toner and Garlock with the consolation going to Todd Snook.

DIETRICH MAKES IT TWO-FOR-TWO IN LINCOLN 410 SPRINTS;

Nouse takes season opener for “358” sprints

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 3/25/2017 – Danny Dietrich held off Jim Siegel and Lucas Wolfe to score his second win in two Lincoln races in Saturday’s 25-lap “410” sprint car feature.

It was a classic final turn slidefest that saw Siegel reclaim the lead momentarily exiting turn four as his slid in front of Dietrich. But “Double D” drove to the bottom exiting turn four and outraced Siegel to the checkered flag.

“I could hear him. I kinda’ saw him I think off of two there on that last lap, and I didn’t think I could go to the bottom there in turns three and four, so I just went to the top. I figured that he would slide me and I needed to get down in the moisture with him going the wrong way. I got to the moisture off of four just in time,” said Dietrich upon exiting his Gary Kauffman-owned Weikert’s Livestock/Sandoe’s Fruit Market #48 in victory lane, “I don’t want to rough nobody up. I think we raced really hard and really clean. With lapped cars, there just wasn’t anywhere to go, so you make the most of what you can with your race car and that’s all you can do.”

Siegel grabbed the lead from invading polesitter Coleman Gulick of Binghamton, New York at the outset and led the first 11 laps until a caution came out for Shane Hoff, who came to stop in turn four while running fourth.

On the subsequent restart, fifth-starting Dietrich passed Gulick for second on the back stretch and tracked down Siegel over the next ten laps, passed the Mason-Dixon Vault Company #59 in lapped traffic of lap 22. Siegel never went away, and took a last-turn shot for the win, coming up just short.

“I can’t thank this crew enough,” said Dietrich, “We had a bad night last night, and we just want to win all year long. It’s as simple as that. I’ll do whatever it takes to win.”

Quietly, Lucas Wolfe entered the picture with just a few laps to go, and crossed a close third. Crossing fourth and fifth were Gulick and the winner’s brother Billy. Sixth through tenth were defending track champ Alan Krimes, Kyle Moody, 18th-starting Cory Haas, 17th-starting Chase Dietz, and Brian Montieth, who sustained front wing damage in a early-race incident involving invader Billy Bulog.

Heats for the 34 410 Sprints were won by Danny Dietrich, Siegel, Wolfe, and Freddie Rahmer, with Chad Trout winning the consolation.

Mechanicsburg’s Kevin Nouse scored the win in the season opener for “358” sprint cars. He started eighth and took the lead from Doug Hammaker in lapped traffic on lap 13 of 20. He held on for the 1.06-second win, the eighth of his career in the Pigeon Hills.

Hammaker, who took the lead from polesitter Todd Rittenhouse, Jr. on lap seven, led the next six laps before Nouse took the lead for good.

Hammaker settled for second, with Rittenhouse third, Adrian Shaffer fourth, and defending champ Chandler Leiby fifth.

Sixth through tenth were Kyle Denmyer, Matt Findley, Todd Gracey, Ashley Cappetta, and Wyatt Hinkle.

Heats for the 25 358 Sprints were won by Hammaker, Brent Shearer, and Phil Walter.

Next Saturdy, April 1st, Lincoln Speedway moves to 6 PM starts and will run off its’ first 3-division racing program of 2017 with the 410 Sprint and 358 Sprints being joined by the All-American Outlaws. Gates open at 4 PM, with hot laps getting underway at 5:30 PM.

Hodnett And Satterlee Open Williams Grove Season With Wins

3/24/17

Mechanicsburg – Greg Hodnett of Thomasville opened up the 2017 Williams Grove Speedway sprint car season on Friday night with a flag to flag victory worth $3,800 over Brian Montieth.

Elsewhere, Gregg Satterlee of Rochester Mills socred the victory in the 25-lap super late model main to record his second career victory at the oval one year after claiming a late model main at the track on the same weekend.

Hodnett drew the second starting spot to begin the 25-lap 410 sprint car feature and outgunned Steve Buckwalter from the pole when the race began.

The first caution flag of the race unfuled with six laps away finding fifth starter Brian Montieth up to third.

Hodnett pulled away on the restart by using the top groove after racing early around the inside lane.

However Hodnett did see his lead shrink with 10 laps to go as Montieth was able to run him down.

Montieth was beginning to take some stabs for the lead on the low side on the 17th tour when another caution flag slowed the pace, this time for a stopped Buckwalter.

The new green allowed Hodnett to pull away once again with Montieth left to try and keep pace.

But while able to keep Hodnett in sight, Montieth was never again able to get close enough to make a bid for the win.

Hodnett instead cruised uncontested to the 67th win of his career at the track with Montieth finishing second followed by Brock Zearfoss, Mark Smith and 15th starter Doug Esh.

Sixth through 10th went to Freddie Rahmer, who earned hard charger laurels; TJ Stutts, Dale Blaney, Lucas Wolfe and Brandon Rahmer.

Heats went to Eric Tomecek, Hodnett and Blaney.

Veteran Gary Stuhler jumped from the pole into the lead at the start of the super late model main over Matt Cosner who pounced from fifth to second.

Cosner was racing with Stuhler on the sixth tour when the second caution flag of the race appeared with Satterlee up to third.

Satterlee blasted by Cosner when action resumed and began his pursuit of the leader.

For several laps prior to a final caution flag with 12 laps to go, Satterlee tried his best to get by Stuhler, using both sides of the track to no avail as Stuhler worked the surface to perfection to hold him back.

But that final restart with 12 to go proved to be his undoing as a slow pace back to the restart by Stuhler allowed Satterlee to power underneath as the pair motored into the first corner.

Satterlee blasted low across the track and bolted into control rather handily and after doing so he began stretching out an advantage that he would hold to the final corner when a wide swing around the cushion allowed Stuhler to close back in just before the checkers.

Satterlee took the $2,000 payday ahead of Stuhler, Cosner, Coleby Frye and Tyler Horst.

Sixth through 10th went to Trent Brenneman, Matt Sponaugle, Bryan Bernheisel, Andy Haus and Jeff Rine.

Heats went to Justin Kann and Satterlee.

‘DOUBLE-D’ DANNY DIETRICH ENTERS USAC NON-WING EASTERN STORM, SERIES OPENS AT GRANDVIEW ON TUESDAY, JUNE 13

BECHTELSVILLE, PA (MARCH 19, 2017) – 410 Sprint Car ace, Danny Dietrich has thrown his name into the hat of local competitors that will ‘Chase the Storm’ when the USAC National Wingless Sprint Car Championship Eastern Storm rolls into town for a week of ultra-exciting racing action, beginning on Tuesday, June 13 at Grandview Speedway.

Dietrich will strap into the Tom Buch-owned/APEX/DKW Transport No. 13 machine for action at Grandview Speedway (June 13), Lincoln Speedway (June 14), Williams Grove Speedway (June 15), and Port Royal Speedway (June 17) before the team heads west to compete with the All-Star Circuit of Champions at Waynesfield Raceway (June 18).

“Tom has given me a great opportunity to run these wingless races and I’m looking forward to going out and trying something different,” Dietrich explained. “It’s going to be tough because we’re out of our element, but I think I can adapt and I believe we have a chance of winning at any of these tracks.”

‘Double-D’ certainly isn’t a stranger to victory lane in Central Pennsylvania, having claimed winged 410 victories at Lincoln, Williams Grove, and Port Royal Speedway in the 2016 season – including the $25,000 Williams Grove National Open victory against the World of Outlaws. Dietrich first found victory lane at the Berks County Grandview Speedway in the inaugural Thunder Cup event in 2015.

But all bets are off with this being Dietrich’s first foray into wingless Sprint Car racing.

“With a wing on we’re used to running really hard on entry,” the 28-year-old racer explained. “I think there’s going to be a learning curve, but this is going to make me a more versatile racer.”

“Danny Dietrich is one of the sport’s most popular racers on and off the race track,” Bob Miller co-promoter of the USAC events at Grandview Speedway and Lincoln Speedway stated. “Having someone of his caliber compete against the USAC drivers adds another layer to the excitement of the Eastern Storm.”

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 a five-race series touring through Central Pennsylvania.

The 11th year of the ‘Eastern Storm’ kicks off on Tuesday, June 13 at Grandview Speedway; followed by Lincoln Speedway on Wednesday, June 14; Williams Grove Speedway on Thursday, June 15; Port Royal Speedway on Saturday, June 17; and rounding out the series on Sunday, June 18 at Susquehanna Speedway.

Williams Grove Opens Season Friday With 410 Sprints & Super Late Models

3/19/17

Mechanicsburg – Williams Grove Speedway will try for a third time to get the 2017 racing seaon off of the ground when it hosts the season opener this Friday night, March 24 at 7:30 pm, featuring the Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint cars and the super late models.

The rescheduled season opener will feature the Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprints in a 25-lap feature paying $3,800 to win.

The super late models will race for a $2,000 to win payday while the winner also earns a guaranteed starting spot in the upcoming June Late Model Speedweek event at Williams Grove Speedway.

A banner field of late models should be expected considering the event will be the first of the year in the region for the full-body stock cars.

Adult general admission for the prestigious season opener is set at just $16 with youth ages 13 – 20 admitted for just $10. Ages 12 and under are always admitted for FREE at Williams Grove Speedway.

The Williams Grove portion of opening day 50/50 ticket sales will be donated to the Wounded Warrior Project.

The sprint car drivers will be competing to win the Williams Grove opening day Hard Charger Award, presented by PAPosseRacing.com.

The hard charger of the race will earn $300 for his efforts.

Last season it was Rick Lafferty of Pennington, NJ., scoring the opening day sprint car feature at Williams Grove Speedway on a Friday night after being pressured for the lead by Freddie Rahmer and having been passed for the win by Greg Hodnett.

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 close out the month of March on Friday, March 31 with the first Yellow Breeches 500 event for the 410 sprints and the first event of the season for the HJ Towing and Recovery 358 sprints.

The Yellow Breeches 500 is a series of events for 410 sprints on the 2017 schedule that pays $500 just to start the 25-lap feature.

Williams Grove Plans New Season Opener Friday, March 17

Lidlifter now offers 410 sprints and super late models

3/12/17

Mechanicsburg – After losing the March 12 season opener to weather, Williams Grove Speedway is slated to open the 2017 racing season coming up Friday, March 17 at 7:30 pm.

Presented by Dieffenbach’s Potato Chips of Lebanon, the rescheduled season opener will feature the Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprints in a 25-lap feature paying $3,600 to win.

The super late models will race for a $2,000 to win payday.

Adult general admission for the prestigious season opener is set at just $16 with youth ages 13 – 20 admitted for just $10. Ages 12 and under are always admitted for FREE at Williams Grove Speedway.

The Williams Grove portion of opening day 50/50 ticket sales will be donated to the Wounded Warrior Project.

The sprint car drivers will be competing to win the Williams Grove opening day Hard Charger Award, presented by PAPosseRacing.com.

The hard charger of the race will earn $300 for his efforts.

Last season it was Rick Lafferty of Pennington, NJ., scoring the opening day sprint car feature at Williams Grove Speedway on a Friday night after being pressured for the lead by Freddie Rahmer and having been passed for the win by Greg Hodnett.

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 24 at 7:30 pm with another 410 sprint and super late model doubleheader.

The super late model winner on March 24 will earn $2,000 for the win but he will actually earn more than that.

The March 24 event will serve as a Late Model Speedweek qualifer for the stock cars at Williams Grove, meaning the winner on March 24 is guaranteed a starting position in the Williams Grove Late Model Speedweek event coming up at the track on June 9.

FREEZING TEMPS FORCE LINCOLN SPEEDWAY CANCELATION;

410 Sprints & Open Practice on tap March 11th

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 3/5/2017 – Overnight freezing temperatures led to a frozen racing surface. And with a forecast of freezing temperatures to linger through the morning into the afternoon, Lincoln Speedway promoters regretfully were forced to cancel this weekends’ second racing program of the 2017.

Last weekend Danny Dietrich survived a marathon day to pick-up the 2017 season-opening Ice Breaker 30. It was a day that initially greeted fans with spring-like conditions until violent thunderstorms delayed the program. After several hours and drastically lower temperatures, Fred Putney and his track prep team got the racing surface back to race-ready conditions allowing the hearty fans in attendance to witness the Abbottstown ovals’ 2017 season-opener.

This weekend overnight temperatures in the teens froze the 3/8th-mile high-banked ovals’ racing surface. Even after waiting an additional day, it was apparent there would be no above freezing temperatures to thaw the racing surface, forcing the promoters to cancel this weekend’s 2nd racing program of 2017.

Next Saturday, March 11th, Lincoln Speedway will try again with another single-division 410 sprint car show. Additionally, there will be an open practice session following the scheduled racing program. Once again, gates open at noon, with qualifying to begin at 2:00 PM.

DANNY DIETRICH WAITS OUT STORM DELAY, NURSES MOTOR TO CLAIM “ICEBREAKER 30” SEASON OPENER

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 2/25/2017 – Fans saw it all at Lincoln Speedway Saturday.

They were greeted with cloudy skies and temperatures exceeding 70 degrees at the outset, cleared the stands when a tornado warning was issued at 2:20 p.m., waited out a four-hour, forty-minute rain and hail storm delay, returned to the stands to a 20-degree temperature drop, and then withstood heavy winds to see Danny Dietrich score his 32nd career win and claim the $4,000 top prize in Saturday “Icebreaker 30” season opener for 410 sprint cars.

A redraw placed Dietrich sixth for the start. A second lap yellow for eighth-starting Bradley Howard, who came to a stop in turn three was the only caution of the event. At the time, Jim Siegel dropped into the pits and did not return.

Dietrich was running fifth when polesitter and race-long leader Tim Glatfelter hit lapped traffic on lap six.

Five laps later, fifth-starting Brian Montieth took the lead from Glatfelter on the backstretch, only to slow suddenly three laps later with mechanical issues, turning the lead back over to Glatfelter. Dietrich inherited fourth when Montieth dropped from the field, behind Glatfelter, front row starter Campbell, and Kyle Moody.

Dietrich caught Moody for third on lap 17 and passed both Campbell for second and Glatfelter on the back stretch of lap 20. From there, he checked out on the field until developing motor problems of his own with just a few laps to go. He was able to nurse it home and cross 297 seconds ahead of runner-up Moody at the finish.

I think it was a valve spring that went,” said Dietrich upon exiting the Gary Kauffman-owned Weikert’s Livestock/Sandoe’s Fruit Market #48 in victory lane, “But as Bob Weikert would have said, we have more back in the shop.”

“I told these guys all week we were gonna race. I expected to be done by 3:00, but we missed that by about a half-hour, said Dietrich tongue in cheek, “It was just another day.”

Crossing third through fifth behind Dietrich and Moody were Cory Haas in new Trone Outdoor Advertising #39 ride, 11th-starting Gerard McIntyre, Jr., and Freddie Rahmer. Sixth through tenth were Campbell, 26th-starting and hard-charger Chase Dietz, Chad Trout, Shane Hoff, and 16th-starting Billy Dietrich.

All told, there were four lead changes among three drivers over the 30 laps.

Heats for the 27 410 Sprints were won by McIntyre, Moody, and Trout.

The temperature dropped from 71 degrees during warm-ups to 46 degrees when the “Icebreaker” ended at 7:48 p.m.

Next Saturday, March 4th, Lincoln Speedway returns with another single-division 410 sprint car show. Gates open at noon, with qualifying to begin at 2:00 p.m.

Port Royal Practices March 4 & 9, Season Opener Is March 11

Andy Haus To Open Late Model Title Defense Aboard New Zerby Ride

2/25/17

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Port Royal Speedway is prepped and ready to begin the 2017 racing season with a pair of upcoming practice sessions on March 4 and 9 before the Season Opener is staged on Saturday, March 11 at 5 pm.

Practice on March 4 runs from 1 – 4 pm while the March 9 session takes place from 6 – 9 pm. Both practices are open to any division on the 2017 schedule of events.

And then the gates will swing open on March 11 for the annual lidlifter with the Weikert’s Livestock 410 sprints and River Valley Builders super late models in the spotlight.

However upon seeing the first green lights of the season, fans will also see defending super late model track champion Andy Haus aboard a new ride.

Set to take to the track in the opener in defense of his track title is 31-year old Haus of Hamburg.

And Haus has reason to be excited about his new season as he recently moved into the seat of a new ride for the 2017 Port Royal campaign.

Haus will be piloting for Shamokin-area owner Vern Zerby, who himself spent 2016 getting his feet wet behind the wheel after never racing in circles before.

Zerby is however an accomplished titlist in tractor pulling in the east, having taken several titles with the Interstate pulling circuit in recent years.

“There was discussion last year about me hot lapping the car but I never did,” said Haus recently about getting linked up with Zerby.

“About two months ago Vern decided to scale back his driving and reached out.”

As it turns out, Zerby’s cars were exact twins to the “house” chassis’ that Haus already had in his own shop, making the transition into his new Saturday night ride somewhat easier to handle.

“Overall, the equipment is excellent,” Haus says.

Haus will campaign Zerby’s No. 29Z on Saturday’s at Port Royal while running his own familiar No. 76 at Bedford Speedway on Friday nights while keeping his No. 76 as a Saturday backup car as well.

Zerby will also continue to field a car at Port Royal for 2016 Rookie Of The Year Dave Brouse Jr. of Beavertown.

Brouse and Zerby joined up for the driver and team’s first year on the track in 2016 with Brouse showing steady improvement as the season wore on.

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.

Chris Windom won the Sprint Car event in 2016 while the Midget race was lost to the weather.

The Extreme Stocks will join USAC on both shows while the 600cc Micro Sprints will also be a part of the August 13 Midget program.

Both events will see green flag action at 7pm with pit gates opening at 4pm and grandstands at 5pm. Admission for both events will be $20 for Adults; $15 for Students and Seniors with Kids 12 and Under Free.
