Several Brown drivers including Cris Eash, Billy Pauch Sr., Lynn Paxton, Lance Dewease, Don Kreitz Jr. and brothers PJ and James Chesson will gather to honor Brown during a special pre-race broadcast in the infield.

TAYLOR WINS SELINSGROVE FIRST IN 360 SPRINT CAR WHITCOMB MEMORIAL;
 

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Ryan Taylor of Mertztown drove to his first career win at Selinsgrove Speedway in convincing fashion in Saturday night’s Patriot Sprint Tour Joe Whitcomb Memorial for 360 sprint cars.

Taylor’s win in the 25-lap tribute race was worth $2,571, and he became the third different winner in as many 360 sprint car races at the track this season.

Adam Carberry Levittown earned the pole for the start of the sprint car feature by winning $500 in the 10-lap Lil’ Bob’s Dash for Cash sponsored by the Walter family in memory of race fan Robert Walter Jr. of Selinsgrove.

Devin Hart of Port Royal powered to his second win of the season at Selinsgrove and eighth overall this year in the 20-lap limited late model main event.

Keith Bissinger of Orangeville held off two-time defending champion Jake Jones of Hunlock Creek for his fourth win of the season in the 12-lap roadrunner race.

Selinsgrove Speedway will be in action two times this coming week with national motorsports events featuring the AMSOIL USAC National Sprint Car Series Thursday, June 17, followed by the World of Outlaws Late Model Series Saturday, June 19. Both shows start at 7:30 p.m. Race information is available on selinsgrovespeedway.com.

Polesitter Adam Carberry charged into the sprint car lead at the drop of the green flag. For the first two laps Carberry and second-place starter Davie Franek dueled for the front spot.

On lap two Colby Womer caught the cushion high in turn two and flipped his sprint car. He was not injured.

When the race resumed, Carberry continued to set the pace until a caution flag for Mike Koehler and Jason Wagner in turn two slowed the pace. At the same time, Franek’s car developed a flat tire and was forced to restart on the rear of the field, moving Ryan Taylor into the runner-up position.

Taylor challenged Carberry for the lead and made the winning pass using the inside line off turn four on lap four. He then opened up a lead over Carberry.

At the halfway point, Taylor led Carberry, fourth-place starter Derek Locke, sixth-place starter Jason Shultz, and fifth-place starter Andy Best.

On the final lap, Locke got by Carberry for second and set his sites on Taylor. At the checkered flag, Taylor was victorious by 1.9 seconds over Locke, Carberry, Shultz, and Best.

Polesitter Chaz Buchinsky pulled into the early lead in the limited late model feature and was chased by second-place starter Jim Yoder for the first lap until sixth-place starter Devin Hart advanced to the runner-up position.

On the fourth lap Buchinsky got sideways in turn four and collected Steve Todorow who was racing in the fourth position. Hart inherited the lead and battled with Yoder for a few laps before stretching his lead in the second half of the race.

Hart won by more than a straightaway over Yoder, Casey Steinhoff, Todd Snook, and Ethan Beasom.

Polesitter Jake Jones led the start of the roadrunner feature with fourth-place starter Keith Bissinger in close pursuit. On the fifth lap, Bissinger made the winning pass using the inside lane through turns three and four.

On a lap seven restart, Jones challenged Bissinger for the lead to no avail, although he continued to race in the leader’s shadow to the finish. Bissinger took the checkered flag over Jake Jones, Terry Kramer, Nate Romig, and Adam Campbell.

Drama Of USAC Silver Crown Series Coming Back To Williams Grove June 18

6/6/21

Mechanicsburg – The national USAC Silver Crown Series will return to Williams Grove Speedway coming up in just two weeks, on Friday, June 18 for a big sprint car show that also includes the Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint cars.

Presented by KRS Graphics, the USAC Silver Crown Series will invade the track for the first time since 2019 to compete in a 100-lap main event paying $8,000 to win.

Action gets underway at 7:30 pm.

The June 18 USAC Silver Crown appearance at Williams Grove will be just the second date on the 2021 schedule for the monsters of the United States Auto Club.

The last time that Silver Crown was in action at Williams Grove it was Oklahoma’s Brady Bacon taking his first-ever Silver Crown Series win after what was a late-race bout of drama that saw one leader taken out of the event by his challenger from behind

Illinois driver Chris Windom was the early leader off of the front row as Steve Buckwalter of Royersford motored into second on lap 38 after starting in eighth spot.

Buckwalter followed Windom until a lap 47 restart when he was able to bolt underneath for control.

After a restart with 11 laps to go, Kody Swanson made a bid for the win only to come up short while also jumbling the field in the second turn that saw Brady Bacon zip through the cluster for the second spot while Windom got by Swanson for third.

Windom then jumped past Bacon to apply pressure to the leader.

However Windom proved rather ungraceful in his bid to steal the win with under a lap to go and the result saw Buckwalter spin out, forcing a green-white-checker run to the finish in which Windom ended up popping a tire just after taking the white flag.

Coming into this year’s Williams Grove show, Swanson has won the only event completed on the tour, at Terre Haute, Indiana.

In recent years, both Windom and Swanson have taken Silver Crown events at Williams Grove while other winners at the track dating back to 1980 include Sheldon Kinser and Eddie Leavitt.

Adult general admission for the June 18 racing program is set at $30 with students ages 13-20 admitted for just $10.

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

Saturday, June 26 (7:30 p.m.) PA SPEEDWEEK: 22nd Annual Kevin Gobrecht Memorial for 410 Sprints plus Extreme Stocks
Abbottstown, PA (June 5, 2021) – Aaron Bollinger has been turning heads since his debut in the 410 sprint division last year. The young driver put together a solid night to park his family owned #16A sprint car in victory lane for the first time on Saturday night. An emotional Bollinger was at a loss for words, “I don’t even know what to say. We just won a feature with the baddest race cars on the planet.”
Making his first victory even sweeter is that it came on his father’s birthday. Bolling shared, “It’s just me and Dad in the garage. It’s tough.” Bollinger held true to the promise he made to his dad, that he would win the race for his birthday.
Bollinger won the race without brakes, “About five to go we blew every single brake pad out of this thing. Yeah, they blew out, I was nervous. We got it done and that’s all that matters.”
Brie Hershey started on the pole of the 30-lap feature with Chris Arnold lined up second.

Like Father, Like Son - Jared Esh Scores Popular Victory In Same Car as Father; Jason Covert, Devin Hart and Shawn Shoemaker Win in Late Model Competition.

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway – PORT ROYAL, Penn. (June 6, 2021) – Jared Esh capitalized on a front row startiing spot to score his second career Port Royal Speedway Weikert's Livestock 410 Sprint Car victory during Bobby Rahal Toyota of Lewistown night on Saturday.

The win was his first at the helm of the Golden Flavor Sesame Sticks No. 98 since taking over the reigns of the sprinter last season and achieved a personal goal for Esh in scoring a win in the same car his father Doug drove years ago to victory at the Juniata County oval as well.

"When I got in this car last season I made it a goal to get a win in this car as I don't know if any father and son have ever won races in the same car at the same track before," said Esh. "This is a pretty cool deal for me and I'm just really happy to be sitting in victory lane again."

Esh lined up on the front row alongside of Tyler Bear for the 25-lap feature and jumped out to the early lead over fourth-place starter Justin Whittall.

Sixth-place starter and early season winner Jeff Halligan was an early mover as he moved into the fourth position on lap two and two laps later he cracked the podium. One lap prior, track points leader and eigth-place starter Logan Wagner moved into the top-five.

Esh was setting sail on the field and was in heavy lapped traffic by lap 8. One lap later Halligan got by Whittall for the runner up spot and two laps later Wagner dispatched of Whittall for the third spot.

With 12 laps remaining, Esh held a neatly 3 second advantage over the field but as lapped cars battled in front of the leaders Halligan cut two seconds off the lead with 10 to go.

"I kept a good pace there in lapped traffic and I felt like we were checked out pretty good," said Esh. "I really just needed to stay in a rhythym and not give it away. I got in the fence there a couple times running the top and I was just trying to stay patient. They were going to have to slide me to get by me."

Esh was able to to put a few lapped cars in between him and Halligan, which allowed him to extend his advantage to nearly two seconds with six laps to go. However, the advantage was wiped out two laps later when Whittall, who was running fourth at the time, blew a tire on the frontstretch and brought out the caution.

Halligan tried a slider in turn's one and two on the restart, but Esh was too good on the top and drove away.He tried the move again in turn's three and four, but again Esh pulled away to lead the lap. One lap later the final caution of the event flew when Trenton Sheaffer got turned around in turn one.

Halligan again tried the bottom on the restart and the move opened the door for Wagner to pull alongside of him for the runner up spot down the backstretch. The battle for secone was just what Esh needed as he pulled away with ease.

Esh would go on to take the checkered flag by an dvantage of 2.430 seconds over Wagner, Halligan, Mike Wagner and Dylan Cisney.

"This has been about the most trying season of my career and we pulled out a new car ladt week and found some speed and ended up hitting the wall and my guys worked up to 2am last night to get this car ready to race," said Esh. "This means so much to me to see the hard work pay off and I just can't thank my guys enough for giving me the opportunity and helping to make this a reality."

For Wagner, it was another runner-up finish for the points leader and his third consecutive at the Speedway. Wagner has been a mark of consistancy this season with 10 total top-five finishes in 11 starts this season.

"I'm really happy for our Zemco team as it's always good to be on the podium and here standing on the frontstretch at the end of the night," said Wagner.

"Our car is so good right now, but ultimately Jared had the best car and we just needed to get up there earlier to have a shot at the win.”

Gerrard McIntyre, Tyler Reeser, Mike Walter II, Lucas Wolfe and Bear rounded out the top-ten.

Reeser earned the Valley Supply Hard Charger award by passing seven cars and 14th-place finish Tyler Walton earned the $1000 Warrior Award courtesy of J&S Fabrication by random draw as well.

Super Late Models

Jason Covert used a first turn slidejob to go from third to first and led all 25 lap to earn his fifth career River Valley Builders Super Late Model victory at the Port Royl Speedway.

"As bad as we've been the last year and a half, it;s so nice to be in victory lane," said Covert. "We've been struggling so much lately and it's just a relief to put a solid night together and get a win."

Jami Lathroum and Dan Stone led the field to the green flag and the two were side by siude exiting turn two. Third-place starter Covert pulled alongside both cars entering the backstretch and he slid up ahead of Stone to take the lead. Both cars made brief contact with Covert holding on to lead lap one.

Stone was all over Covert with 20 laps to go and fourth-place starter Jeff Rine had moved into the third position. Three laps later after multiple attempts, Stone took the lead by a nose at the line form Covert.

Covert stayed on the bottom of the track and didn;t divert from his plan and five laps later he took the lead back exiting turn four.

"Once Dan (Stone) got by me I knewq it was time to go and I needed to really get up on the wheel and get my tires hot," said Covert. "I didn;t really want to change what I was doing behind the wheel and I jut tiried to keep my tires straight and stay smooth."

Stone’s hopes for a win came to a close when he got into the outside guardrail exiting turn four and slowed in turn one with a right rear flat tire. That moved fifth-place starter Colton Flinner into the runner-up spot and again Covert jumped out to the lead at a return to gree-flag racing.

Covert stayed glued to the bottom of the speedway and rolled the middle in turn's three and four, while Flinner was ripping his patented outside line at both ends of the Speedway. Flinner stayed close enough that any mistake he could capitalize on, but Covert was consistent as they closed on lapped traffic.

Jeff Rine brought out the caution with eight to go as he came to a slow on the frontstretch. On the restart Flinner again tried the top, but it opened up the door for seventh-place starter Gary Stuhler to take the runner up spot. Flinner took the spot back a few laps later, but the battle enable Covert to cruise to the victory.

He crossed under the checkered flag by 2.016 seconds over Flinner, Stuhler, Dylan Yoder and Ross Robinson. Dillan Stake earned the hard charger presented by Geroge's Used Cars by advancing 10 positions to finish in sixth.

Jim Bernheisel, Lathroum, Nick Dickson and Marvin Winters completed the top ten.

"We've really just been off this year and that was about as good as we've felt car wise all season," said Covert. "We felt really good in warm ups and in the heat race and I knew if we stayed tue to the plan we were going to be tough to beat."

Hart started eighth on the grid for the first feature and by lap two he was already up to second. With 10 laps to go, he was all over the leader, Jared Fulkroad, and the top three were under a blanket on the backstretch.

SHULTZ HOLDS OFF SMITH FOR FIRST KRAMER CUP VICTORY;
SWEIGART STORMS TO 305 SPRINT CAR FEATURE WIN;
 

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Jason Shultz of Carlisle became the fourth and final leader before taking the checkered flag in Saturday night’s exciting 25-lap United Racing Club Kramer Cup for 360 sprint cars.

The $2,573 win at the wheel of the Ritter Racing/Selinsgrove Ford No. 35 was his first in the Kramer Cup, third of the season in URC competition, and 22nd of his 358-360 racing career at the track.

Mark Smith of Sunbury, a five-time winner of the Kramer Cup, finished a close second in the race honoring the late track champion and Hall of Famer Kramer Williamson.

Nick Sweigart of Manheim wired the field for his victory in the 25-lap 305 sprint car main event.

Keith Bissinger of Orangeville became the first three-time roadrunner winner of the season in the division’s 12-lap main event.

Selinsgrove Speedway will present the 18th annual Joe Whitcomb Memorial for 360 sprint cars sanctioned by the Patriot Sprint Tour at 7 p.m. Saturday, June 12, plus limited late models and roadrunners on Advanced Concrete Systems/Eastern Museum of Motor Racing Night.

Polesitter Troy Betts out-raced front row starter Dallas Schott into the first turn for the early lead in the sprint car Kramer Cup. Schott chased Betts for the first lap until sixth-place starter Davie Franek stormed into second.

On the sixth circuit, Franek took the lead with an outside pass by Betts in turn two. The race’s first caution flag unfurled on lap nine for debri in the third turn. On the lap 10 restart, original eighth-place starter Mark Smith restarted in the third position and made a dive into the first turn to emerge the new race leader coming out of turn two.

At the halfway point, Smith led Franek, seventh-place starter Jason Shultz, Betts and fifth-place starter Derek Locke. A two-car tangle in turns three and four involving Ryan Stillwaggon and Dave Brown brought out the caution flag.

On the restart, Shultz carbon-copied Smith’s previous dive into turn one to take the race lead. While Shultz showed the way Smith kept him in his sights. In the final laps of the race, Smith closed in on Shultz in a last-ditch effort to reclaim the lead and take the win.

The final caution flag waved on lap 19, setting up a double-file restart with Shultz and Smith side-by-side. Shultz used his momentum to stay in front of the pack and take the checked flag by less than a second over Smith, Franek, Josh Weller, and Schott.

Front row starters Doug Dodson and Nick Sweigart see-sawed for the lead at the start of the 305 sprint car feature. The race was stopped on lap three when a multi-car tangle off the second turn blocked most of the track. On the ensuing restart, Derek Hauck flipped his sprint car in turn two.

Whittall Whips Williams Grove Sprints, Drevicki Battles For USAC East Win

6/4/21

Mechanicsburg – Justin Whittall of Vincentown, New Jersey, led from flag to flag to pick up the win in the 25-lap sprint car feature at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night.

Whittall pocketed $6,000 for the win including a $500 bonus from event sponsor H & N Landscaping.

It was his first ever Williams Grove Speedway win.

The 25-lap USAC East 360 sprint main went to Steve Drevicki after a furious late race charge by challengers Briggs Danner and Alex Bright.

Whittall started his No. 67 on the pole of the 410 sprint main and took control over Kyle Moody at the start.

The only caution flag of the race appeared with eight laps completed when the top wing on Dylan Norris’ machine collapsed, causing him to stop on the speedway.

Moody made an attempt to challenge Whittall on the restart but after a few laps, Whittall began steadily pulling away from the field, opening up a nearly two-second advantage by the halfway point.

Danny Dietrich started seventh in the field and was up to third at the halfway point.

Whittall continue to hold a nice lead until the five-to-go point when both Moody and Dietrich began to close as the leader bore down on the backmarkers.

With three laps to go both Moody and Dietrich were on the leaders tail and Dietrich nearly got by Moody for second with a low run through the fourth turn.

That triggered Moody to move down in the fourth corner as well for the final two laps and as the leaders headed to the checkers the Lewisberry driver nearly pulled off the late upset as he drew to Whittall’s inside down the frontchute.

However Whittall was able to race back to the line and edge ahead of Moody back to the checkers, taking his win by a scant .107 seconds.

“This is a dream come true right now,” Whittall said. “I figured they were catching me, but I held my own tonight. I started falling off when I saw the lapped cars. I started getting nervous.”

“ I didn’t know how big my lead was. I thought I could lay back a little and save my tires and fuel. Towards the end, I started hearing Kyle behind me. I knew I had to step my game up, but I pushed a little too hard.”

Dietrich crossed the finish line in third followed by Steve Buckwalter and Alan Krimes.

Sixth through 10th went to Lance Dewease, Doug Hammaker, Brandon Rahmer, Freddie Rahmer and TJ Stutts.

Heats went to Whittall and Brent Shearer.

Carmen Perigo Jr. led the first 14 laps of the USAC East sprint car main, followed early by Steve Buckwalter before Steve sixth starter Steve Drevicki took the spot away on lap three.

Perigo held and commanding lead during the early going but little by little Drevicki of Reading was able to bite into his advantage.

With 10 laps to go, Drevicki was able to take command as Perigo began slipping backward while Alex Bright, Kenny Miller and Briggs Danner started moving to the front.

Drevicki was forced to contend with lapped traffic all the way to the finish of the non-stop event and that gave his trio of challengers all the chances they needed to not only catch the leader but also to attempt to pass him.

The final five laps of the race were wild all the way to the finish with Danner eventually knocking Bright back to third while Drevicki worked the cushion.

Danner was all over Drevicki during the final two circuits, drawing even for the lead and taking it more than once only to see Drevicki reclaim the spot.

A tight finish found Drevicki holding off his pursuers by .193 seconds with Danner ending up second followed by Alex Bright, Perigo and Tommy Kunsman.

Drevicki also took a USAC East win at the track last season.

Heats went to Perigo, Buckwalter and Kunsman.

PATRIOT SPRINT TOUR WHITCOMB MEMORIAL FOR 360 SPRINTS, LIMITED LATE MODELS, ROADRUNNERS ON ADVANCED CONCRETE SYSTEMS/EMMR NIGHT JUNE 12

SELINSGROVE, Pa. -- The Patriot Sprint Tour will sanction the 18th Annual Joe Whitcomb Memorial for 360 sprint cars at Selinsgrove Speedway at 7 p.m. Saturday, June 12. The tribute race will honor the memory of the late open wheel racer from Millersburg who succumbed to injuries sustained in a sprint car racing accident at the track on June 21, 2003.

Saturday night’s racing program will be sponsored by Advanced Concrete Systems of Middleburg and will also feature the limited late models, roadrunners, and exhibition laps for the Eastern Museum of Motor Racing vintage cars.

Pit gates will open at 4 p.m. with grandstand gates at 5 p.m.
The 25-lap Whitcomb Memorial will pay $2,571 to win and $271 to start. Time trials, heat races, dash, and B-main will be the tentative qualifying format. The $2,000 dash purse for the 360 sprint cars, the Lil’ Bob’s Dash for Cash, is being sponsored by the family of former race fan Robert Walter Jr. of Selinsgrove, with $500 going to the winner!

Previous winners of the Whitcomb Memorial include Nate Snyder of Halifax (2004, 2017); Kevin Nagy of East Brunswick, N.J. (2005); Blane Heimbach of Selinsgrove (2006, 2007, 2008, 2020); Pat Cannon of Etters (2009, 2010, 2013); TJ Stutts of Liverpool (2011, 2012, 2014, 2015); Davie Franek of Wantage, N.J. (2016); Chad Layton of Harrisburg (2018); and Jason Shultz of Carlisle (2019).

Whitcomb, a dedicated racer most of his life, began his career in go-karts at the age of seven. He won hundreds of races in karting and was a three-time national karting champion. A highlight during his karting career was an appearance on ESPN.

In 2001, Whitcomb became a regular competitor at Selinsgrove in the 358 sprint car, driving his trademark blue and yellow number 71 racer. That year, Whitcomb became Selinsgrove Speedway’s Sportsman of the Year.

Whitcomb won his first sprint car race at Selinsgrove on June 8, 2002, ending the five-race winning streak of champion Chad Layton. Whitcomb also won sprint car races at Williams Grove and Bridgeport Speedways during his racing career.

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY: A Motorsports Tradition for Generations

Selinsgrove Speedway’s grand motorsports tradition began July 20, 1946, when Bill Holland of Philadelphia won the first race. Since that historic day, Holland went on to win the 1949 Indy 500, and many of motorsports’ most famous drivers have turned laps at the iconic half-mile dirt track designed by legendary Hollywood stuntman and race car driver Joie Chitwood. The speedway, celebrating its momentous 75th anniversary in 2021, will continue its legacy of rip-roaring open wheel and stock car racing this season and for future generations!

Port Royal Speedway to Open June Schedule with Three-Division Bobby Rahal Lexus of Lewistown Night

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Penn (June 3, 2021)- For the first time in the month of June, Port Royal Speedway will host three divisions of racing as part of Camera & Autograph Night presented by Bobby Rahal Lexus of Lewistown this Saturday, June 5th.

As customary, it’ll be the Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Cars joined by the River Valley Builders Super Late Models. Also, on the card will be a special “Twin 18’s” event for the Selinsgrove Ford Limited Late Model division.

For fans wishing to participate in Camera & Autograph Night, the pits will be open free of charge to all fans with a general admission wrist band from 5-5:45pm.

Gates will open at 4pm with racing set to kick off at 7pm. General Admission- $20, Students- $10, Pits- $30

In Weikert’s Livestock 410 action, Lance Dewease was the most recent winner in the division as he knocked off the FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 for a $29,000 payday. Dewease held off Logan Wagner, Tyler Courtney, Danny Dietrich and Mike Wagner for his 118th career triumph at the Juniata County oval.

Logan Wagner enters the weekend on top of the series standings with a 220-point advantage over second place Dylan Cisney in search of his fourth consecutive track championship. The elder Wagner, Mike, sits in third (-225) followed by Jeff Halligan (-340) and Anthon Macri (-500).

This weekend marks a return to the Speed Palace for the Super Late Models following a week absence. The World of Outlaws Dirt Late Model series were in town the last time they raced and it was Chris Madden sweeping the weekend and the $25,000 that came with it.

Delaware native Ross Robinson sits atop the series standings with a mere 5-point advantage over Dylan Yoder. Gary Stuhler (-65), Tyler Bare (-130) and Colton Flinner (-165) round out the top five. There have been seven different winners in the division in nine races this season, with none of them coming from the top-five drivers in the series standings.

This will be a unique event for the Limited Late Models as they participate in a regular handicapped show featuring a pair of 18-lap features. The winner of the first feature will draw either a 6, 8 or 10 to invert the lineup for the second 18-lap feature.

Devin Hart was the most recent feature winner at the Speedway and he has three total victories in the 2021 season along with a commanding 125-point lead in the series standings over Andrew Yoder. Derick Garman (-125), Shawn Shoemaker (-140) and Bob Dunn (-305) round out the top five.

PORT ROYAL, Pa. (May 31, 2021) - It was a special day in Port Royal for Fayetteville, Pennsylvania’s Lance Dewease, as the National Sprint Car Hall of Famer not only secured the 2021 Bob Weikert Memorial title for a 42nd-career FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 victory, a 13th Series win at the Port Royal “Speed Palace,” but the pilot of the ever-familiar Kreitz Racing No. 69K accomplished his first All Star triumph of season on Davey Brown’s 87th birthday; one of Central Pennsylvania’s legendary mechanics and the head wrench for Kreitz Racing. Dewease scored a $29,000 payday for his efforts, as well as the coveted bull trophy.

Three-time Port Royal Speedway track champion, Logan Wagner, finished second on Monday evening, followed by leading All Star Circuit of Champions title contender, Tyler Courtney, a hard-charging Danny Dietrich, and Mike Wagner.

“He didn’t come to victory lane at my 100th victory at Williams Grove. He was there, but left, so I told him we had to win this so he could be in victory lane with me because that’s what it’s all about,” Lance Dewease said in Port Royal Speedway victory lane. “He is 87 years old. Just think about that. And he still works on this race car and he is the drive behind this race car, working to make it go as fast as it can. If I get to that age and have that level of desire and dedication, I’ll be happy.”

Although Dewease, who started from eighth on the grid via top-ten redraw, led the majority of the 30-lap program, his march to Bob Weikert Memorial victory lane was full of challenges, as well as a few lucky breaks. In fact, a caution on lap seven for a slowing Brent Marks initiated Dewease’s first challenge for the top spot. Marks, who started fourth, had just slid early race leader, Hunter Schuerenberg, for the lead, but hard contact with the turn one and two wall forced the “Myerstown Missile” to retire. The ensuing restart saw Dewease power to the front, utilizing the low line through turns three and four to take command before crossing back under the flagstand.

Meanwhile, Anthony Macri, a 2021 All Star winner at Bedford who started tenth on the Weikert lineup, was on the move, using a caution on lap 10 to power by two cars in a single circuit to claim second. Another caution on lap 12 allowed Macri to restart on the tailtank of the Hall of Famer.

Laps 15 through 20 resulted in an all-out war between Macri and Dewease. Attempting slider after slider, Macri eventually made a move stick, barely edging out Dewease in a drag race back to the start/finish line to complete lap 20. All momentum would halt the following lap, as a caution would set up an open red.

On the ensuing restart, Dewease charged back by Macri, utilizing the lowline through turns one and two to reclaim the point over the Dillsburg-native. Refusing to give up, Macri hounded Dewease yet again, returning to the cushion with hopes of powering around the Kreitz Racing entry. Unfortunately for Macri, massive contact with the turn three wall ended his efforts on lap 26; he would be forced to leave on the hook.

Without further challenges, Lance Dewease drove on to claim the five-figure payday.

“Anthony is really good here. He pounds the wall hard,” Lance Dewease continued. “He was going to have to really earn it to get back by me. I guess he hit the wall too many times. We were really good on restarts. I could get into the corner flat out. I knew Anthony wasn’t going to go down to block me. He probably thought he wasn’t going to have to worry about me.

“It’s great to be here racing in the sunshine. Port Royal does such a fantastic job. I’m just really happy to be here.”

The All Star Circuit of Champions will continue their 2021 campaign with a four-pack in the Midwest, kicking-off the long weekend with a visit to Fairbury American Legion Speedway in Fairbury, Illinois, on Thursday, June 3, followed by a Wisconsin tripleheader at Wilmot Raceway, Plymouth Dirt Track, and Angell Park Speedway on Friday through Sunday, June 4-6.

LINCOLN SPEEDWAY

Abbottstown, PA

FREDDIE RAHMER SCORES $5,000 HANK GENTLZER MEMORIAL VICTORY

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Saturday, June 5 (7:30 p.m.) 410 Sprints, USAC East Coast Sprints, and ARDC Midgets

Saturday, June 12 (7:30 p.m.) FALLEN FIREFIGHTERS NIGHT IN MEMORY OF BRANDON LITTLE: 410 Sprints ($5,000 to win w/ TT) and 358 Sprints (also KIDS NIGHT)

Saturday, June 19 (7:30 p.m.) 410 Sprints, Super Sportsman (Tour Series event), and Late Models (ARCH Night)

Abbottstown, PA (May 31, 2021) – It had been over a month since Freddie Rahmer last stood in victory lane at Lincoln Speedway. Since his win in April Rahmer had only finished outside the top five once. Despite the solid finishes Rahmer shows up every week wanting a win, “It feels really good to win again, it feels like it’s been a while” he shared in victory lane. Saturday night’s win was special as it was the Hank Gentzler Memorial. Gentzler was a staple in racing and his legacy continues on with the annual running of his memorial race. When asked in victory lane about Gentzler Rahmer said, ““He supported racing in a lot of different ways. I’ve never won this race before, so it was pretty cool to do that.” Freddie’s win was his 16th at Lincoln and ties him with Steve Kinser on the all-time win list.

Ryan Smith, the winner of the 2019 Hank Gentzler Memorial, started on the pole of the 35-lap feature.

Smith led the field into turn 1 with Aaron Bollinger, Freddie and Brandon Rahmer battling for position behind him.

Freddie drove to the outside of Bollinger coming out of turn 4 and took second at the line.

The first caution of the race came on lap 3 when Bollinger got turned around in turn 2. Bollinger had been running third and was able to rejoin the field.

Smith led Freddie, Brandon, Dylan Norris and Chad Trout to the cone for the single-file restart.

Freddie looked to the inside of Smith into turn 1 and took the lead coming out of turn 2. Trout was also on the move and got by Norris for fourth.

Brandon was working the bottom trying to reel in Smith for second. Brandon took the spot at the line on lap 9.

Freddie entered lapped traffic on lap 10.

As the leaders worked through heavy lapped traffic Trout was closing in on Smith for third as Smith was battling to take second back from Brandon. The three-car battle was put to a halt when the yellow flag waved on lap 20 for Bradley Howard who got spun around in turn 2.

The Rahmer brothers, Freddie and Brandon, paced the field ahead of Smith, Trout and Tyler Ross for the restart.

Smith got by Brandon in lapped traffic for second on lap 31 and Trout followed on the next lap taking third.

Freddie got to the checkered flag 4.741 seconds ahead of Smith. Trout was closing in on Smith but ran out of laps and settled for third. Brandon crossed the line fourth and Ross completed the top five.

The 25-lap 360 sprint car race will pay $2,573 to win and $273 to start.

Keller’s Auto Body & Towing of Selinsgrove finished the beautiful custom pink trophy cup that will be presented to the winner of this weekend’s Kramer Cup memorial race.

Kramer Williamson succumbed to injuries he sustained in a sprint car racing accident at the Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown in August of 2013.

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.

Mark Smith of Sunbury has won five of the seven Kramer Cups, with victories in last year’s race along with checkered flags in 2014, 2016, 2017, and 2018. Robbie Stillwaggon of Burlington, N.J., scored the prestigious win in 2015 and Ryan Smith of Kunkletown was the 2019 winner.

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 SPEEDWAY: A Motorsports Tradition for Generations

Selinsgrove Speedway’s grand motorsports tradition began July 20, 1946, when Bill Holland of Philadelphia won the first race. Since that historic day, Holland went on to win the 1949 Indy 500, and many of motorsports’ most famous drivers have turned laps at the iconic half-mile dirt track designed by legendary Hollywood stuntman and race car driver Joie Chitwood. The speedway, celebrating its momentous 75th anniversary in 2021, will continue its legacy of rip-roaring open wheel and stock car racing this season and for future generations!

Stars Coming Out To Honor Legendary Mechanic Davey Brown Friday At Williams Grove

All Stars Circuit of Champions Sprints 10K to Win Brown Tribute Race slated!

Special pre-race ceremonies with Brown drivers, owners planned for infield prior to action

5/23/21

Mechanicsburg – The stars are lining up to come out and celebrate the career of 86-year old legendary mechanic Davey Brown Sr. coming up this Friday night, May 28 at Williams Grove Speedway when the oval hosts the All Stars Circuit of Champions Sprints $10,000-to-win Davey Brown Tribute Race.

Racing action on the track with the All Stars will begin at 7:30 pm but the pre-race action to honor Brown and his career will begin in the infield at 5:45with a special presentation planned for intermission.

Slated to be on hand for a one hour live Facebook broadcast on Beer Hill Gang TV and the meet and greet session starting at 5:45 are some of the sports biggest drivers, car owners and mechanics that have come to know and work with Brown best.

Elite sprint car and modified driver Billy Pauch, who wheeled the John Zemaitis No. 1 sprint car for Brown in the 1990s, has confirmed his attendance along with Zemaitis himself.

Racing brothers James and PJ Chesson are also slated to appear along with Lynn Paxton as drivers that worked Brown’s steering wheels during their careers spanning the 1970’s, 1980’s, 1990’s and 2000’s.

Others expected to be on hand include mechanics Dave Yingst and Lee Stauffer along with the sons of Bobby Gearhart Sr. and Bob Weikert.

Brown wrenched for driver Gearhart to much success in the 1960s and for owner Weikert with driver Doug Wolfgang in the 1980s when the sky was the limit for the legendary team.

More recently, Brown has been wrenching for Lance Dewease since 2016 and for driver/car owner Don Kreitz Jr. since 1999 and both men will be on hand to celebrate as well along with Dewease’s Kreitz-owned No. 69K machine until 6:30.

And, in celebration of Brown’s upcoming 87th birthday on May 31, fans are invited to help celebrate in the infield with free birthday cake beginning at 5:45.

Davey Brown Sr. began his racing career as a mechanic and a driver in jalopies along with his friend Johnny Mackison Sr. in 1953.

Brown soon dropped the driving career and went on to build engines, fabricate and turn wrenches for many of the sports elite drivers throughout history including but not limited to Johnny Mackison Sr., Bobby Gearhart Sr., Paul Pitzer, Toby Tobias, Mitch Smith, Kramer Williamson, Doug Wolfgang, Kenny Jacobs, Lynn Paxton, Cris Eash,. Billy Pauch, the Chesson brothers, Don Kreitz Jr. and Lance Dewease.

Perhaps only the great Karl Kinser commands the respect and notoriety that Brown does within the sprint car community and racing annals and it’s that contribution to the sport and his legacy that Williams Grove Speedway will honor this Friday.

Led by Ian Madsen, Cory Eliason, Justin Peck, Tyler Courtney and others, the All Stars Sprint Cars drivers will be out in full force to claim the Brown Tribute Race laurels and the cool 10K that will come with the 30-lap victory.

The holiday weekend kickoff racing special will be a “sprints only” racing program complete with a fireworks display.

Race time is set for 7:30 pm with gates opening at 5:30.

Adult general admission for the May 28 racing program is set at $25 with students ages 13-20 admitted for just $10.

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

LINCOLN SPEEDWAY

Abbottstown, PA

CHASE DIETZ EDGES DIETRICH FOR FIRST WIN OF SEASON; Cody Fletcher Wires Field for Victory

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Saturday, May 29 (7:30PM) HANK GENTZLER MEMORIAL: 410 Sprints + 358 Sprints + Central PA Legends

Saturday, June 5 (7:30PM) 410 Sprints + USAC East Coast + ARDC Midgets

Saturday, June 12 (7:30PM) FALLEN FIREFIGHTERS NIGHT IN MEMORY OF BRANDON LITTLE: 410 Sprints (TT/$5,000 to win) + 358 Sprints plus Kids Night

Abbottstown, PA (May 22, 2021) – Chase Dietz had been knocking on victory lane’s door all season long. Going into Saturday night’s racing action Dietz had seven top 10 finishes, including two seconds, two thirds a fourth and a fifth. Dietz finally cashed in on the speed he and the Trone team have found this season with a late race pass for the win Saturday night.

Dietz spoke to the success the team has had in victory lane, “We’ve been good here about every race. We got a lot better tonight and were in the right spot at the right time.”

Billy Dietrich started on the front row and led the first 26 laps of the 30-lap feature. Dietz lined up ninth and ran down Dietrich in lapped traffic. “Billy was running a good race and I figured it was going to come down to the lapped cars,” said Dietz.

It was a close finish, with Dietz getting to the checkered flag .123 seconds ahead of Dietrich. Dietz knew it was going to be a close finish in the final turns, “Like the rest of them it came down to the end and we ended up on top.”

Dave Brown started on the pole. Dietrich and Tim Glatfelter raced three-wide with Brown at the start with Dietrich taking the lead and Glatfelter moving up to second. Landon Myers was running fourth and got under Brown for third in turns 1 and 2 on lap 2.

Dietz and Tyler Ross each took a side to get around Brown for fourth and fifth. Myers got by Glatfelter for second on lap 3. Glatfelter stayed close and was using the high line to try and take second back. Glatfelter took the runner-up spot back at the line on lap 6.

Dietz drove by Myers coming out of turn 2 for third on lap 9.

Dietrich had racked up a 2 second lead over Glatfelter and the rest of the field as he approached lapped traffic a third of the way through the race.

Dietz was reeling in Glatfelter to challenge for second when the caution came out on lap 12 for Aaron Bollinger who stopped on the front stretch.

Glatfelter, Dietz, Myers and Ross lined up behind Dietrich for the restart.

A four-car battle was on for second between Glatfelter, Dietz, Myers and Ross. Dietz won the battle and took second on lap 13. Glatfelter and Myers continued to battle for third. Ross fell back and was being challenged by Freddie Rahmer for fifth.

Myers got by Glatfelter to take the third spot back on lap 14. Ross challenged Glatfelter for fourth with Rahmer joining to make it a three-car battle. Rahmer tried a slider in turns 1 and 2 to get by both Ross and Glatfelter. Rahmer only managed to get by Glatfelter to move up to fifth.

Dietrich entered lapped traffic on lap 18 with Dietz closing in. Dietrich made quick work of the first lapped car and started to pull away, taking his lead back up to over one second. As the leaders worked through lapped traffic Dietz had whittled Dietrich’s lead back down to under a second.

Dietz took the lead at the line with three laps to go. Dietrich took the lead back in turns 1 and 2 with Dietz taking over the top spot down the back stretch.

A lapped car loomed ahead of Dietz when the white flag waved. Dietz got hung up behind the lapped car in turns 3 and 4 allowing Dietrich to make one last attempt for the win. Dietz won a close one over Dietrich with Rahmer crossing the line third. Ross finished fourth and Myers held on to finish fifth. Rahmer was the hard charger advancing 12 positions, from 15th to 3rd.

410 sprint heat race winners were Billy Dietrich, Troy Wagaman and Chase Dietz.

Cody Fletcher Wires Field for Victory

Hayden Miller and Cody Fletcher, both having wins under their belts already this season, shared the front row for the 20-lap feature on Saturday night.

Fletcher and Miller made contact in turn 1 on the initial start with Miller spinning and Fletcher continuing on. Miller was not the only one with issues in turns 1 and 2 at the start. Jon Stewart and Justice Forbes got together in turn 1. Bruce Garner was turned around in turn 1 and Brett Strickler was stopped coming out of turn 2. Kody Hartlaub sustained damage and headed to the pits for repairs.

Miller, Stewart, Garner, Strickler and Hartlaub rejoined the field for the complete restart.

Fletcher shared the front row with Matt Findley as the field lined up side by side.

Fletcher took the lead with Steve Owings driving by Findley to take second. Findley and Cappetta raced side by side for third with Cappetta taking the spot. Before the lap was completed the caution waved again. Tony Hippensteel, Kyle Rohrbaugh and Zachary Cool were all stopped in turn 4.

The field lined up for their third attempt at starting the race. The third time was a charm as Fletcher once again took the lead.

Owings went to the top but could not get by Findley this time for second in turns 1 and 2. Owings took the spot in turns 3 and 4.

It didn’t take long for Owings to track down Fletcher and the two raced wheel to wheel for the lead on lap 2. Fletcher held on to the top spot as the caution flag flew again. Garner was stopped on the inside of turn 4.

Owings ran the top looking to take the lead from Fletcher. When the top did not prove fruitful, Owings moved to the bottom of turns 3 and 4 nearly taking the lead at the line. Owings took the top spot on lap 6. Fletcher stayed close and took the lead back on lap 7.

The caution flag waved on lap 7 when Justin Foster fell off the pace on the front stretch.

Fletcher led Owings, Findley, Rohrbaugh and Adrian Shaffer to the cone for the restart.

Once again Owings went to the top while Fletcher stuck to the bottom. Owings got a good run coming out of turn 2 on lap 12 to reel Fletcher in, but Hartlaub brought out the caution in turn 1 before the lap was completed.

Another caution on the restart came when Garner and Hippensteel got spun around in turn 2.

The field got one lap in on the restart before yet another caution on lap 13. Garner, Strickler, David Holbrook, Hippensteel, Zach Euculano and Shane Yost got together in turn 4.

Yet again Fletcher held off Owings on the restart and yet again the yellow flag flew on lap 14. Garner spun out in turn 4. The yellow turned into an open red for teams to refuel.

Fletcher held off Owings on the restart and the field completed the final six laps incident free.

Fletcher took the checkered flag .645 seconds ahead of Owings. With his second place finish Owings captured the Trail-Way/Lincoln Shootout Championship. Findley finished third with Jeff Rohrbaugh crossing the line fourth. Shaffer completed the top five.

358 Sprint heat race winners were Steve Owings, Tyler Esh and Ashley Cappetta.

SELINSGROVE FANS TREATED TO FOUR FANTASTIC FINISHES:
BRIGHT, YODER, BARD & BISSINGER TAKE CHECKERED FLAGS

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – A packed pit area of race cars produced the most exciting finishes of Selinsgrove Speedway’s early 75th anniversary season Saturday night with Alex Bright of Collegeville making a thrilling late-race pass by Briggs Danner of Allentown to score the victory in the 25-lap USAC East Coast 360 wingless sprint car main event.

Andrew Yoder of Middleburg reeled in JR Toner of Bellefonte late in the 20-lap limited late model feature to record his second win of the season at Selinsgrove and 50th of his young late model racing career.

Garrett Bard of Wells Tannery passed Kenny Heffner of Watsontown with three laps to go in the 20-lap main event for his win in the PASS/IMCA 305 sprint car race.

Keith Bissinger of Orangeville held off several challenges for his second win of the season in the 12-lap roadrunner race.

Selinsgrove Speedway will host two Renegade Monster Truck Tour shows over the upcoming Memorial Day holiday weekend Saturday and Sunday, May 29-30. The Saturday show is sold out and tickets for the Sunday afternoon event can be purchased on monstersinselinsgrove.com.

The speedway’s next race is slated for 7 p.m. Saturday, June 5, featuring the United Racing Club 360 sprint cars in the Kramer Cup plus PASS/IMCA 305 sprint cars and roadrunners. Grandstand gates will open at 5 p.m.

Front-row starters Nash Ely and Briggs Danner brought the wingless sprint cars to the green flag in the main event with Danner pulling into the early lead. Alex Bright, who started fifth, advanced to third on the third circuit and then moved by fourth-place starter Kenny Miller for second on lap five.

Early in the race, Danner opened up a sizeable lead while the race for the top five positions intensified. The race’s first caution flag unfurled on lap 10 when Jason Cherry stopped in turn four. On the lap 11 restart, ninth-place starter Carmen Perigo showed some speed and challenged Bright for second to no avail.

At the halfway point, Danner led Bright, Perigo, third-place starter Mark Smith, and sixth-place starter Steve Drevicki. In the final 10 laps of the race, Bright had Danner in his sights in lapped traffic. While Danner raced the inside line, Bright stormed around the top the race track.

The second and final caution flag waved on lap 22 for Colby Womer in turn two. On the restart with three laps to go, Bright made a dive to the inside of turn one and pulled off a thrilling slider by Danner to take the lead. Danner tried to return the slider in turns three and four but Bright outraced him.

At the finish, Bright was victorious by a mere one-second margin of victory over Danner, Perigo, Smith, and Miller.

Polesitter JR Toner beat out front row starter Drew Weisser for the early lead in the limited late model feature. Toner led Weisser for the first two laps until fifth-place starter Jared Fulkroad battled into the runner-up position.

Eighth-place starter Andrew Yoder quickly made his way into the top five and took over the third spot from sixth-place starter Todd Snook on the seventh lap. At the halfway point, Fulkroad was in striking distance of Toner.

Yoder powered into the second spot on the 14th lap as last week’s winner and 15th-place starter Devin Hart raced into the top five. On a lap 17 restart, Yoder made the winning pass in turns three and four and went on to post a 1.8-second margin of victory over Snook, Hart, third-place starter Casey Steinhoff, and Fulkroad.

In the 305 sprint car feature, second-place starter Kenny Heffner stormed into the early lead with fourth-place starter Austin Reed in pursuit. On a lap three restart, sixth-place starter Garrett Bard drove into the third position.

At the completion of lap five, Heffner was leading Bard, Reed, 10th-place starter Ken Duke, and original polesitter John Walp. On a lap 11 restart, Bard put in a bid for the lead but Heffner held control. Through most of the event, the top five drivers raced under a blanket.

Late in the race, Bard was tormenting Heffner for the lead and with two laps remaining made the winning pass using the inside lane off turn four. Bard went on to take the checkered flag by just .73 of a second over Heffner, Duke, Reed and sixth-place starter George Riden.

Front row starters Keith Bissinger and Smith Cope dueled for the lead at the start of the roadrunner race. While Bissinger edged out Cope for the front spot for the flag-to-flag victory he was closely followed for all 12 laps.

Fourth-place starter Curtis Lawton was Bissinger’s most serious challenger as Cope, sixth-place starter Nate Romig, and third-place starter Adam Campbell competed in the top five.

Jake Jones, who originally started 10th, moved into contention late in the race after an altercation earlier in the event. At one point, Jones challenged Lawton for the second spot. At the checkered flag, Bissinger held on for his second win of the season over Lawton, Jones, Campbell and 14th-place starter Brad Mitch.

Dewease Dominates For Williams Grove 100th Sprint Win

Locke goes 3 for 3on the season in 358s

5/21/21

Mechanicsburg – Lance Dewease dominated at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night to score his unprecedented 100th career oval sprint car victory, a goal he never really thought about until just the last few seasons after becoming the track’s all-time win leader.

“It’s a number that this speedways never seen,” he said.

“I just thought if I could race long enough I could get here. I love racing at this place, I always have.”

And he got there in style after starting fourth in the 25-lap feature and jetting into the lead in the second corner after the green flag came out.

With one swoop through the middle in turn one and then to the outside in the second corner, Dewease swept his No. 69K past front row starters Jeff Halligan and Danny Dietrich.

After being scored the leader, Dewease had to deal with six restarts thanks to numerous cautions that plagued the first 12 circuits of the race.

Dietrich tried a slider for control on a lap eight restart and got alongside the leader but Dewease held his ground and maintained control.

And then when Dietrich tried it again on a lap 12 restart, Dewease made sure to hold him down low as the pair set their cars into the first corner, preventing his challenger from setting up another attempted flyer.

During the second half, non-stop part of the feature, Dewease poured on the speed and blasted to more than a straightaway advantage before entering lapped traffic with four laps to go.

The traffic forced Dewease to back down on his pace before taking the win by .912 seconds over Dietrich and Jeff Halligan.

“My old body don’t like sittin’ in that seat that long, my back hurts,” Dewease said of the lengthy event and enduring all the restarts.

“We’re not done, we’re just getting’ started,” he said when asked about reaching the 100 Williams Grove win milestone.

With the win, Dewease took the season point lead in the chase for the track title.

It was the Fayetteville drivers first victory at the oval since scoring his 99th on June 26 of last season.

Dewease won for the very first time at Williams Grove Speedway in the Mitch Smith Memorial on July 10, 1992 while wheeling the Walt Dyer Masonry No. 461 sprinter.

Alan Krimes finished fourth in the main event followed by Devon Borden, who was as high as third at one point.

Sixth through 10th went to Brad Howard, Landon Myers, Brandon Rahmer, Dylan Norris and Kyle Moody.

Heats went to Halligan, Dietrich and Howard.

Derek Locke led all 20 laps of the 358 sprint main to continue his domination of the class at the track this season.

Lock has now won all three events contested at the track this season, pushing his career win total at Williams Grove to six.

Chad Criswell followed Locke to the finish followed by Brett Wanner, Kyle Denmyer and Chris Frank.

Sixth through 10th went to Cody Fletcher, Colby Womer, Tyler Brehm, John Stehman and Matt Findley.

Heats went to Locke, Criswell and Wanner.

Aaron Reutzel Claims 15K Williams Grove World Of Outlaws Morgan Cup

5/15/21

Mechanicsburg – Aaron Reutzel of Clute, Texas, swept to the $15,000 World of Outlaws sprint car victory in the running of the Morgan Cup at Williams Grove Speedway on Saturday night.

At the wheel of the Dennis Roth-owned No. 83, Reutzel would lead all 30 laps of the contest from the pole although both Gio Scelzi and Lance Dewease would make their presence known.

The pair of Reutzel and Scelzi share the front row for the start of the sprint car main with Reutzel jetting out from the inside pin to take control when action began.

Meanwhile, after starting 10th, Dewease stormed forward to fifth on the first circuit before taking fourth from Anthony Macri on the third lap.

With Reutzel in command, the race entered the backmarkers on the eighth tour and it would run the remaining 22 laps with the leaders working the at times challenging traffic.

By the halfway point, Dewease was challenging Kerry Madsen for third before finally taking the spot with 13 laps to go.

This then set up the front trio of Reutzel, Scelzi and Dewease to fight out the race to the finish.

With 10 laps go to it was clear that Reutzel was beginning to struggle with the lapped cars as he worked the outside and that was the chance that both Scelzi and Dewease were waiting for.

Scelzi got the closest to Reutzel during the closing laps but traffic would prove very tough to tame for all three men, especially for Dewease who found a slow car repeatedly racing just in front and preventing him from hitting his marks in the corners.

But the traffic did end up helping Reutzel during the final few laps when he was able to surmise that the bottom lane had come in after the lappers began getting harder to pass.

This gave the signal to Reutzel to move down on the track and take the bottom lane instead of his favored cushion line, ultimately preserving the lead and win while Scelzi and Dewease continued to labor to clear the slower cars.

“I was going by lapped cars pretty easy up there,” Reutzel said of his top groove success during the early and mid stages before making his decision to drop low late in the event.

“It’s good to be in lapped traffic and judge your speed off of the lapped cars,” he said, noting that when he saw the lapped cars keeping his pace it was then that he decided to drop to the bottom groove.

Reutzel took the win, the fourth overall of his career at the track, by 2.190 seconds over Scelzi.

It was also his second of the year on the outlaws tour.

Dewease crossed the line in third, also claiming the hard charger laurels.

Antohny Macri and Madsen rounded out the top five.

Sixth through 10th went to Kyle Larson, James McFadden, Donny Schatz, Logan Schuchart and TJ Stutts.

Heats went to McFadden, Macri, Reutzel and Larson with Ryan Smith scoring the B Main and Reutzel taking the dash to earn the pole position.

Overall fast time was set by Fresno, California’s Scelzi with a lap of 17.624 seconds.

Macedo Holds Off Dewease For Outlaws Win At Williams Grove Friday

5/14/21

Mechanicsburg – Carson Macedo held off Lance Dewease to pick up the $10,000 win in Friday night’s World of Outlaws sprint car feature at Williams Grove Speedway.

But Macedo was holding on for dear life at the finish to record his second career oval win.

“I never thought I’d win an outlaw show here,” Macedo said after the checkers.

And Dewease did all he could to see that Macedo wouldn’t but it just wasn’t quite enough.

The pair started the 25-lap main on the front row with Macedo on the inside pin and when action began it was Macedo getting the jump on Dewease as eighth starter Brent Marks bolted up to fourth on just the first lap.

The leaders entered the rear of the field on lap seven and that allowed Dewease to close the gap on Macedo and by lap 10 Macedo had his Jason Johnson No. 41 just under a straightaway ahead.

With Dewease in search of his 100th career oval victory, the pressure was on both drivers at the front and tied up in traffic, Fayetteville’s Dewease took his first shot at Macedo on lap 14.

Dewease drew even with the leader in the second turn, drawing to his inside, but Macedo’s momentum carried him off of the corner with control as Dewease fell back in line.

During the mid-stages, Macedo was able to pull back away from his challenger but as the laps wore down, Dewease again started closing in thanks to some massive blasts into the third turn that helped slice down the advantage.

And by the time that the white flag flashed over the field, Dewease was ready to pull a last turn upset and it nearly worked.

As the pair set their mounts into the third turn, Dewease shot in low once again and blasted across the bottom lane as he tried to dig into the lead.

The move failed however although the pair raced out to the wall before Macedo edged ahead, maintaining his control back to the checkers.

“I honestly thought when we went into three, I thought I was going to get in front of him but when we went in I clipped the berm on the bottom and it shot the nose across the track or I think I could have been in front of him,” Dewease said of his last ditch, final turn shot at taking the win.

Macedo said he was struggling the longer the race wore on.

“At the end I didn’t know where to be,” he said.

“It seemed like the harder I drove, the slower I went.”

Macedo’s margin of victory was .361 seconds.

The Lemoore, California, driver won the season opener at the track in 2020.

Marks got by James McFadden to ride home third with McFadden in fourth and Aaron Reutzel completing the top five.

Sixth through 10th went to Kerry Madsen, David Gravel, Donny Schatz, Sheldon Haudenschild and Kyle Larson.

Heats went to Dewease, Madsen, Macedo and Reutzel with Kraig Kinser taking the B Main.

Macedo won the dash to earn the pole for the feature event.

Fast time was set by Sheldon Haudenschild with a lap of 16.599 seconds.

Abbottstown, PA (May 12, 2021) – The 2021 battle between the PA Posse and the World of Outlaws kicked-off at Lincoln Speedway Wednesday night with the Gettysburg Clash. The most exciting rivalry in sprint car racing did not disappoint in front of a packed house in the pigeon hills. Despite starting on the front row of the 35-lap feature, it was not an easy path to victory for Brad Sweet. Sweet settled in behind Donny Schatz on the start and fell back to third mid-race before avoiding a miscue by a lapped car that held up the leader, Brent Marks. Sweet’s victory was his first at Lincoln.

Looking to score his 300th World of Outlaws win, Donny Schatz started on the pole for the Gettysburg Clash. Sweet made it an all-Outlaw front row. Lance Dewease and Anthony Macri represented the PA Posse in row 2.

Schatz had the advantage over Sweet going into turn 1. Sweet had to hold off Dewease who was challenging for second. Sweet pulled away leaving Dewease to fend off a charge by Macri for third. Macri took the spot before the red flag came out on lap 3 for Chad Trout.

Schatz elected to restart on the inside for the double-file restart. Robbie Kendall spun in turn 2 bringing out the yellow on the restart.

The field lined-up single file behind Schatz for the restart. Schatz got a good jump on the start. Dewease raced side-by-side with Marci to get third back. Macri had his sights set on Sweet for second though. Sweet moved up the track to use the high side to keep Macri at bay and Dewease used the bottom in turns 3 and 4 to get back by Macri for third. As Dewease was reeling in Sweet smoke started to pour out of the blue and orange #69K. Dewease stopped on the track bringing out the yellow flag on lap 8.

Once again Schatz elected to restart on the inside. Carson Macedo made a move to get by Marci on the restart and Brent Marks made a charge to the front of the field as well. Macri got back by Macedo and Marks before the caution came out to hold onto third. The lap 9 caution was for Jacob Allen.

Macri looked to the inside of Sweet for second as Marks got by both of them to move into third. Sweet reeled in Schatz to take the lead coming out turn 4 on lap 12. Schatz battled back to take the lead back at the line on lap 13.

Lapped traffic loomed ahead of the leaders at the half-way point of the race. The top three, Schatz, Sweet and Marks, were racing under a blanket for the lead as they caught the tail end of the field.

Marks took second from Sweet coming out of turn 2 and quickly went to work on Schatz in traffic for the lead. He took the top spot with ten laps to go. Schatz stayed close and battled hard with Marks to try and get the lead back to score his 300th Outlaw win. As Sweet was looking to take second from Schatz, a lapped car bobbled in front of Marks. Marks avoided the lapped car, but in doing so fell back to fourth. Sweet took advantage of the situation and darted to the lead ahead of both Schatz and Marks. Macri also capitalized on the situation, making his way to second.

Marks charged back to the front of the field as the laps wound down and was back to second with three laps to go. Marks reeled in Sweet using the bottom but ran out of time to reclaim the lead.

Sweet claimed his first Lincoln Speedway win .251 seconds ahead of Marks. Macri finished third and David Gravel crossed the line fourth. Schatz completed the top five.

Sweet might have had the second-best car but as he shared in victory lane, “A wins a win, especially in Central Pennsylvania.” Receiving both cheers and jeers from the crowd Sweet also had this to say after his Outlaw win, “That’s what it’s all about it’s about these crowds, putting on a show for these fans we appreciate them whether they’re cheering or booing.”

Abbottstown, PA (May 8, 2021) – In victory lane TJ Stutts was not shy about sharing that the World of Outlaws format is his favorite as a driver. The format worked in Stutts’ favor on Saturday night in Lincoln Speedway’s Outlaw Tune-up. Stutts timed third quick against a field of 37 cars, won his heat, the dash and the $4,000 to win feature. Stutts’ win was his first 410 victory at Lincoln, he has three wins in the 358 division at the track.

After winning the 6-lap dash, Stutts started on the pole. Current point leader, Alan Krimes, lined up second for the start of the 30-lap feature.

Stutts led the field into turn 1 with Krimes, Chase Dietz and Jim Siegel racing behind him.

Anthony Macri got by Dylan Cisney on the start to get into the top five. Macri got under Siegel in turns 1 and 2 on lap 4 for fourth. Freddie Rahmer went to work on Siegel for fifth.

Lapped traffic loomed ahead of Stutts on lap 6 as Krimes and Dietz battled for second. Dietz took the runner-up spot coming out of turn 4 on lap 7.

Dietz was using the high line leaving the bottom open for Krimes to stay close. Macri closed in on the top three as they worked their way through lapped traffic.

The first caution of the race came on lap 15 for Matt Campbell when he was sitting backwards in turns 1 and 2.

Stutts led Dietz, Krimes, Rahmer and Macri to the cone for the restart.

Dietz got a good run on Stutts and looked to the inside of the leader in turns 1 and 2. Dietz tried a slider in turns 3 and 4 and had the lead for a moment before Stutts took it back coming out of turn 4.

Macri got fourth back from Rahmer but Rahmer took the spot back at the line. Macri and Rahmer continued to battle as the two swapped positions multiple times each lap.

Stutts was pulling away from Dietz and the rest of the field as he caught lapped traffic again with seven laps to go.

The battle for fourth and fifth between Rahmer and Macri was still hot as the laps wound down.

Dietz closed in on Stutts with two laps to go. Dietz was all over Stutts on the last lap and gave it all he had as they raced to the checkered flag. Stutts crossed the line .064 ahead of Dietz. Krimes finished third. Rahmer got back by Macri one last time to take fourth by .001 seconds at the line.

Stutts’ win was his first in the 410 division since 2019 and he shared in victory lane, “If you would have asked me two week ago, I was ready to retire and put someone else in.” Next up at Lincoln is the first round of the PA Posse vs. World of Outlaws battle in the Gettysburg Clash on Wednesday.

Heat race winners were Anthony Macri, Dylan Cisney, TJ Stutts and Alan Krimes.

Mike Enders Victorious in Super Sportsman Tour Series

The second race of the Super Sportsman Touring Series went to Mike Enders on Saturday night at Lincoln Speedway.

Enders lined up on the outside of pole-sitter Dave Hollar for the start of the 25-lap feature.

Enders led the field into turn 1 with Chase Gutshall and Jay Fannasy battling for third and fourth behind Hollar.

Gutshall took third and left Fannasy to hold off Scott Dellinger as he battled Fannasy for fourth.

As the top five raced for position behind him, Enders pulled away from the field.

Fannasy got by Hollar Gutshall to move into third. Dellinger followed moving up to fourth and sending Gutshall back to fifth.

Gutshall was faced with holding off Kenny Edkin, the winner of the first Touring event of 2021, as he challenged Gutshall to get into the top five.

Enders entered lapped traffic on lap 10.

Edkin got by Gutshall and started working on Dellinger for fourth. Dellinger had his eyes on third as he worked on Fannasy. Dellinger took the spot on lap 12 at the line and then brought out the caution on lap 12 as he spun out in turn 1. Matt Ondek was also collected in turn 1.

Enders led Hollar, Fannasy, Edkin and Gutshall to the cone for the single-file restart.

Russ Mitten got under Gutshall on the restart to enter the top five. Frankie Herr followed sending Gutshall back to seventh.

Edkin was working on Fannasy for third when the caution came out on lap 14. Rich Eichelberger and Luke Deatrick got together in turn 4.

The top five for the restart were Enders, Hollar, Fannasy, Edkin and Mitten.

A four car battle for second was under way between Hollar, Edkin, Fannasy and Mitten. Fannasy took the runner-up spot on lap 17.

The yellow flag waved again on lap 18 when Dellinger stopped on the front stretch.

Fannasy restarted second behind Enders and was closing in on the leader. Mitten got by Hollar for third. Edkin got by Hollar on lap 21 to take fourth and Herr followed on the next lap.

Enders won his fourth Lincoln feature .787 seconds ahead of Fannasy. Mitten crossed the line third and Edkin finished fourth. Herr completed the top five.

Patrick McClane Wins Extreme Stock Feature

Johnny Palm and Patrick McClane shared the front row for the 20 lap Extreme Stock feature on Saturday night.

McClane led the field into turn 1 with Palm in second and Donnie Broderick in third.

The yellow came out for Chase Rehbein before a lap was in the books when he got turned around in turn 4.

The field lined up for a complete restart. Once again McClane took the lead when the green flag dropped. Broderick used the outside to get by Palm for second.

Jeremy Stremmel, Michael Goodwin and Hunter Fulton raced in a three-car battle for fourth behind the leaders.

World Of Outlaws Morgan Cup This Weekend At Williams Grove Speedway

Sweet, Gravel, Reutzel & Marks Enter As Favorites In May 14/15 Action

5/9/21

Mechanicsburg – The World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Cars Series is set to assault Williams Grove Speedway coming up this weekend, Friday and Saturday, May 14 and 15 for the running of the Morgan Cup.

Slated for May 14 and 15 at 7:30 pm each night, H & N Landscaping of Mechanicsburg will present the two-day outlaws stand at Williams Grove.

Adult general admission for each night of the Williams Grove outlaws stand is set at $30 with youth ages 13 –20 admitted for $15.

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

Both of the weekend’s racing programs will pay $10,000 to win with Friday’s main event going 25 laps while the Saturday feature will go for 30.

Saturday’s winner will receive an additional 5K to be declared the 2021 Morgan Cup Champion to go along with bragging rights as Morgan Cup Champion for a year of either the World of Outlaws series stars or those of the Pennsylvania Posse.

Outlaws champion Brad Sweet continues to control the World of Outlaws season point standings as he vies for his third series title in a row at the wheel of Kasey Kahne’s No. 49.

California’s Sweet has pushed his season win total to eight wins on the outlaws season to date including just sweeping three events in a row in the state of Missouri.

Clearly with the point lead and his early season win percentage having won eight of a total 20 races fought on the series tour so far this season, Sweet has to be viewed as a favorite coming into this weeks Williams Grove Morgan Cup action.

However Sweet has yet to master the Williams Grove paper clip oval in his accomplished career and while this trip into Posse country may prove to be the one when he finally breaks through, his outlaws nemesis David Gravel will enter the weekend as a favorite.

Connecticut’s Gravel has really taken a liking to Williams Grove during the last few seasons and indeed scored two of four events held at the track last season while also taking a pair in 2019.

The two-time Williams Grove National Open champion has three wins on the outlaws tour this season and currently sits second to Sweet in the point standings aboard Todd Quiring’s Big Game Motorsports No. 2.

Additional drivers to score on the outlaws tour to date this season include Sheldon Haudenschild, Logan Schuchart, James McFadden, Carson Macedo, Aaron Reutzel and Brent Marks.

Reutzel, aboard the Roth No. 83, may also be one to watch with the outlaws when he gets back to Williams Grove as the Texas native has really learned his way around the big half-mile in recent seasons as well.

With one win on the Williams Grove season, Freddie Rahmer is the current oval point leader.

Perennial outlaws killer at Williams Grove, posse pilot Lance Dewease seems poised to score his elusive 100th career speedway win and nothing would please the Fayetteville flyer more than to do so over the outlaws big dogs this weekend.

Other members of the Pennsylvania Posse poised to make a run at the outlaws this weekend include Anthony Macri, Brent Marks and Danny Dietrich.

Marks, who recently moved back into the seat of his family-owned No. 19M, has proven to be on a hot streak of late, scoring three of six since returning to the car.

He’s won against the outlaws on the road at Eldora on Saturday and against the Posse here in the region and may indeed be the best bet for a local driver to get a win at Williams Grove this weekend.

A premier residential and commercial landscaping company in the region, H & N Landscaping will present the entire weekend of World of Outlaws/Pennsylvania Posse racing action.

H & N Landscaping, located at 675 Williams Grove Road in Mechanicsburg, has been serving the region for over 35 years.

Diamond Series Outlaws Tune Up This Week At Williams Grove With 6K To Win

Macri and Marks will use race to prepare, 358 sprints also in action

5/2/21

Mechanicsburg – Williams Grove Speedway will allow the sprint car teams to prepare for next week’s World of Outlaws invasion coming up this Friday night, May 7 at 7:30 pm when it hosts a Hoosier Diamond Series World of Outlaws Tune Up event.

The special tune up for the Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint cars will pay $6,000 to the 25-lap winner with time trials setting the heat lineups.

May 7 will be VP Racing Fuels Night at the track with the HJ Towing and Recovery 358 sprint cars also on the racing program for their third race of the young season.

Gates will open at 5:30 pm.

Adult general admission for the May 7 racing program is set at $20 with students ages 13-20 admitted for just $10.

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

So far this season at Williams Grove Speedway no driver has been able to repeat in 410 sprint car action while Derek Locke has copped both 358 sprint main events contested.

The $6,000 top prize for the sprint cars on Friday night is sure to be very attractive to the Williams Grove teams as they prepare for the outlaws next week.

Anthony Macri and Brent Marks are surely top contenders to park in victory lane in the tune up race and when the outlaws show up the next week.

Macri of Dillsburg will use the event to work on his qualifying game for the May 14/15 outlaws stand.

“We use the tune ups for practicing time trials because with WoO shows time trials are everything and it sets the tone for the rest of the night,” Macri says.

“Time trial good and you have a shot at a win but not time trial well and it feels like you’re digging yourself out of a hole for the rest of the night.”

Marks of Myerstown says the tune up race benefits all the locals.

“We use the tune up and treat it like any other World of Outlaw race. It’s nice for the local guys to run their format and just get that extra week to get comfortable with how the program runs,” Marks says.

Advanced reserved seat tickets for all 2021 Williams Grove Speedway and the NOS Energy Drink World of Outlaws Sprint Cars Series events are available exclusively through the NOS Energy Drink World of Outlaws.

Fans who wish to obtain any reserved seats for any of the six outlaws events at the track in 2021 can purchase tickets via the official outlaws official website located at www.worldofoutlaws.com/tix or by calling 1.844.DIRT.TIX.

Anthony Macri Holds on For Second Port Royal Win of the Season; Eckert and Grube Get First Wins of 2021

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Penn. (May 2, 2021)- Anthony Macri charged forward from the sixth starting spot and held off a hard charging Brent Marks to earn his second victory of the season at Port Royal Speedway.

"I knew it was between me, Brent and Lance and whoever got out front was probably going to win it," said Macri. "We didn’t have the best car and I really had to adjust me driving to keep the pace up."

Michael Walter and Jeff Miller led the field to the green flag of the 25-lap Weikert's Livestock 410 Sprint Car event and it was Walter getting out to the early lead as he slipped around Miller exiting turn two to lead the first circuit.

Meanwhile, Macri was on the move early as he went form sixth to third on the opening lap. One lap later Macri made everyone in attendance rise to their feet as he cut through the middle of Walter and Miller exiting turn two with a daring move to take the lead.

"I knew those guys were going to wear each other trying to get the lead as everyone wants to win when you start up there," he said. "It was a bit aggressive, but I had to get there and start building a lead as I knew those other guys would be back there."

Marks, who started fourth, moved into third on the following lap and after a multi-lap battle with Miller he took over the runner-up spot on lap five.

Two laps later, Macri was in heavy lapped traffic and on the same circuit eight starter Lance Dewease moved into a podium spot past Miller. Macri was cruising through the lappers with ease and held nearly a 3.5 second advantage over Marks when the red flag came out for a crash involving Miller in turn two.

Miller rode the outside guardrail all the way to the exit of the turn and put a small hole in the fence before flipping wildly and briefly catching fire. He was able to escape with no injuries, but the break allowed Marks the opportunity to close in and make his move.

Using the extreme high side, Macri jumped out to the lead when the field returned to green, while Dewease poked his nose under Marks for the runner-up spot. Marks rocketed back by on the outside and began to plot his move for the lead. Meanwhile, series points leader Logan Wagner was up form seventh to fourth and closing fast.

With seven laps remaining, Macri was again in heavy lapped traffic and this time Marks was within striking distance. With five laps to go Marks was all over the leader's tail-tank and with three laps to go he was set to pull a slider entering turn one for the lead when he had to get off the gas to avoid a lapper, which allowed Macri the momentum to pull away.

That was all Macri needed to cruise home for the win and he took the checkered flag by an advantage of 1.2 over Marks. Dewease, Wagner and Ryan Smith filled out the top-five. Dylan Cisney, Jeff Halligan, Mike Wagner, Walter and Gerard McIntyre rounded out the top-ten. Halligan earned the night's $300 hard charger courtesy of Valley Supply and LandPro Equipment of Mifflintown by advancing 13 positions. He also scored the random draw J &S Fabrication Warrior Award worth $1000 with the finishing number of 7.

"I was struggling really bad and I was worrying myself as I could hear back there," said Macri of Marks. "Going down the frontstretch I seen Brent show his nose and I knew I had to make something happen. I split those two cars getting into one and two and after that I drove as hard as I could without blazing the tires off it."

For Marks, he knew his best chance was late in the race and felt his car got better after the red flag.

"Once we got into lapped traffic I was starting to run him down and I could see him getting closer and closer," said Marks. "We got that red flag and I made a few adjustments and it helped me out a little. I was trying to use that lapped car as a pinch for him, but and he cleared that and it just didn't work out for me. All in all it was a good run for us."

410 Sprint Car Feature Finish, 25 Laps: 1. Anthony Macri; 2. Brent Marks; 3. Lance Dewease; 4. Logan Wagner; 5. Ryan Smith; 6. Dylan Cisney; 7. Jeff Halligan; 8. Mike Wagner; 9. Mike Walter II; 10. Gerard McIntyre Jr.; 11. Jared Esh; 12. A.J. Flick; 13. Justin Whittall; 14. Kerry Madsen; 15. Tyler Bear; 16. Trenton Sheaffer; 17. Curt Stroup; 18. Tyler Reeser; 19. Kody Lehman; 20. Jeff Miller.

Super Late Models

Rick Eckert capitalized on a front row starting position to earn his 11th career Port Royal Speedway River Valley Builders Super Late Model feature win. The win came after the series participated in dual heats earlier in the night with earned passing points.

" I don't think we had the best car, but we definitely had the best starting spot," said Eckert. "We've been working hard here all year and we keep getting better and hopefully this is the first of many wins this year."

Dan Stone and Eckert led the field to the field to the green flag and Eckert jumped out to early lead. Fourth starter Gary Stuhler moved into the runner-up position and set his eyes on the lead. Eckert found himself buried in lapped traffic with 13 laps to go and one lap later Stuhler was all over his rear-end for the lead.

With 10 laps to go, the top-five were all under a blanket and entering turn three Stuhler was primed to take the lead when Stone and fourth-place runner Colton Flinner got collected and brought out the caution.

Third-place starter Ross Robinson moved into the runner-up position on the restart and 15th starter Dylan Yoder moved into the third spot the following lap.

A pair of cautions halted action over the next several laps with the final one occurring with five-to-go. Over the final five circuits, Robinson was all over Eckert for the point. Robinson stayed glued to the bottom, while Eckert drove his car hard into the turn and drifted towards the top to gain the momentum.

Robinson was better in turn's one and two while Eckert was stronger at the other end of the track. The two battled side by side for the final laps, but Eckert was able to hold on to take the win byb.565 seconds at the checkered flag.

Robinson, Yoder, Tyler Bare and Stuhler rounded out the top-five while Jeff Rine, Marvin Winters, Austin Berry, Jason Covert and Hayes Mattern completed the top-ten. Yoder earned the $300 hard charger courtesy of George's Used Cars and LandPro by advancing 12 positions.

"If he was going to keep running that thing so hard on the bottom, I was going to run it just as hard on the top," said Eckert. "That was really the only thing I could do. I just kept going higher and harder and I guess I was doing my best Macri impression banging the board. I'm thankful to finally get that monkey off my back and get a win."

For Robinson, it was another runner-up position in search of his first victory at the Speedway.

"I want to win at this place so badly and we're so dang close that I can taste it," he said. "I felt like we were better entering the turn's, but he just kept getting stronger off the top exiting and that was the name of the game."

PA Sprint Series 305 Sprint Cars

Dave was the man to beat during a three car battle with Ken Duke Jr. and Kenny Heffer and he earned his second career Penns Valley Meat Market PA Sprint Series 305 Sprint Car victory at Port Royal Speedway Saturday night.

Grube and Duke shared the front row and it was Grube getting the early jump on the field using the high line of the Spedway. Duke was all over the leader in the early goings of the race, but the caution flew with 12 laps to go for a slowing Kassidy Kreitz.

Third-place starter Kenny Heffer lasted around the top of Duke on the restart and he set his sights on Grube for the lead. With nine to go Heffner made contact with the outside guardrail in turn four trying to get around Grube and opened the door again for Duke.

The three swapped positions multiple time over the next five laps and with four to go it appeared Heffner was destined to take the point when he and Grube made contact on the backstretch. Heffner saved the car and fell to third, while Duke capitalized to gain on first.

Grube would hold on for the final remaining laps to score the victory by an advantage of .970 seconds over Duke, Heffner, Devin Adams and Justin Mills. Garrett Bard earned the hard charger award by finishing in sixth from 17th followed by Drew Young, Erin Statler, Austin Reed and Dakota Schweikart.

"We were kind of set up to run the top and I ended up getting into the 97 car there which was unfortunate," said Grube. "I was just trying to hold my line as good as I could and it happened. This team has been so fast lately and we needed this win. I'm so happy for my guys."

305 Sprint Car Feature Finish, 20 Laps: 1. Dave Grube; 2. Ken Duke Jr.; 3. Kenny Heffner; 4. Devin Adams; 5. Justin Mills; 6. Garrett Bard; 7. Drew Young; 8. Erin Statler; 9. Austin Reed; 10.

MARKS RETURNS IN HIS OWN SPRINT CAR TO WIN SECOND CAREER
RAY TILLEY CLASSIC SUNDAY AT SELINSGROVE;
 

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – In only his second race back behind the wheel of his own sprint car, Brent Marks of Myerstown scored a convincing victory in Sunday night’s 30-lap Ray Tilley Classic for 410 sprint cars at Selinsgrove Speedway.

Marks first won the Tilley Classic in 2013 and became the first repeat winner of the event held in honor of the speedway’s all-time career leading sprint car winner on Icon Legacy Custom Modular Homes Night. He earned $5,088 for the win in the No. 19M in the first race of the season for the Lelands.com 410 sprint cars.

Danny Dietrich of Gettysburg was the Fast Tees Fast Qualifier with a lap time of 16.692.

Dan Stone of Thompson dueled with Andrew Yoder of Selinsgrove for the first half of the 25-lap super late model feature before driving to his first victory of the season and eight career at Selinsgrove worth $3,000.

Selinsgrove Speedway is back in action at 6 p.m. this Saturday, May 1, with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series in the Riteway Sealing & Paving “Battle of the Groves” for 360 sprint cars plus limited late models, and roadrunners. Pit gates open at 3 p.m. with grandstand gates at 4 p.m.

Polesitter Anthony Macri pulled into the lead at the start of the 410 sprint car feature. Macri was chased by second-place starter Brent Marks and third-place starter Danny Dietrich.

By lap six, Marks began to pressure Macri for the lead and exchanged the front spot several times with sliders through the turns. On the eighth lap, Marks took the lead with an inside pass in turn three.

At the halfway point, Dietrich got by Macri for second in turn two. With 10 laps to race, Marks led Dietrich, Macri, fourth-place starter Justin Peck, and fifth-place starter Chase Dietz.

The race’s first and only caution unfurled on lap 23 when Tyler Ross’ sprint car fell off the pace on the frontstretch. On the ensuing restart, Dietrich tried to slide underneath Marks for the lead but lost the runner-up position to Macri. On the 27th circuit, Peck got by Dietrich for the third position.

While Marks and Macri were setting a blistering pace, 10th-place starter Dylan Cisney made a last-lap pass by Dietz for the fifth position. Marks took the checkered flag by 1.6 seconds over Macri, Peck, Dietrich, and Cisney.

Front row starters Dan Stone and Andrew Yoder dueled for the early lead for several laps until A. Yoder pulled ahead. While running the highline, A. Yoder kept his racer in the lead with Stone drawing a bead on the bottom of the race track.

On the 11th circuit, Stone got a good run off turn two and pulled alongside A. Yoder again in turns three and four. While drag racing for the lead, Stone secured the front spot with an inside pass in turn three on lap 12.

With 10 laps remaining, sixth-place starter Jeff Rine began to show speed and advanced to the second position. In the final five laps, Rine attempted to reel in Stone to no avail. At the checkered flag, Stone’s margin of victory was 2.5 seconds over Rine, third-place starter Dylan Yoder, fourth-place starter Gene Knaub and A. Yoder.

Steve Buckwalter Makes Late Decsion to Head to Port Royal Pay Off With Sixth Career Win; Ken Duke Jr. and Jason Shultz also Win During Open Wheel Madness 1
April 25th, 2021

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Penn. (April 25, 2021)- Steve Buckwalter didn’t plan to be at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday. However, when incoming rain forced the start time to move two hours up and with his shop close by, they made the decision to press their luck and head to Juniata County.

Buckwalter made the decision pay off with his sixth career trip to victory lane at the Speedway as he held off a hard charging Dylan Cisney to bank the $4000 payday by a margin of .70 seconds.

“We were supposed to be at Lincoln, but with the time change we were not going to make it in time,” said Buckwalter. “So we made the decision to shoot on over to Port and I guess it was the right move.”

Tyler Reeser and Kody Lehman led the Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Car field to the green flag with Reeser getting the early jump to lead the opening circuit. Sixth starter Buckwalter was already up to fourth at the completion of lap one.

Buckwalter got by Lehman for third on lap three and five laps later he disposed of second place Justin Whittall five laps later and set his sights on the point. One lap later the Royersford Rocket used a slide job entering turn three to take the lead on lap nine.

Whittall got by Reeser for the runner up spot with 12 laps to go and eighth-starter Cisney used a two-for-one move in turn’s three and four to go form fifth to third. Cisney moved into the runner-up spot and Tyler Bear slid into third and was heavy in pursuit of Cisney.

However, Buckwalter was in control and at one point he held a near three-second advantage on the field as he entered lapped traffic. Glued to the bottom, Buckwalter was struggling to pass the lapped cars and it allowed Cisney to close over the final handful of circuits.

However Buckwalter was not to be denied as he crossed under the checkered flag for his first win of the season. Cisney took second followed by Whittal, Bear and 11th-place starter Danny Dietrich.

“This is why I’m hired and that’s to win races,” said Buckwalter. “I feeel like we should be winning more than we are. It’s tough up here and It’s just so damn slick. We had some motor issues here the past few weeks and I talked to Tim at HP and we worked through it and got it running now.”

For Cisney he felt he needed to get to the front earlier as he knew the bottom would be the place to be and it would be tough to make a move later.

“I was trying to get to the front early as I knew with the way the track was it was really my only shot to maybe get a win,” he said. “We struggled pretty badly last week, so to come out of here with a second is something we’ll take and try and get better.”

Anthony Macri finished sixth with a charge from the 14th starting spot to earn the $200 Valley Supply Hard Charger Award. Blaine Heimbach, Logan Wagner, Gerrard McIntyre and Lehman rounded out the top-ten. Ryan Smith earned the $1000 Warrior Award courtesy of J&S Fabrication after finishing 24th and a random draw in victory lane drew number 24.

Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Car Feature Finish, 25 Laps: 1. Steve Buckwalter; 2. Dylan Cisney; 3. Justin Whittall; 4. Tyler Bear; 5. Danny Dietrich; 6. Anthony Macri; 7. Blane Heimbach; 8.

Penns Valley Meat Market PA Sprint Series 305 Sprint Cars

Ken Duke Jr. lead wire to wire to collect the Penns Valley Meat Market PA Sprint Series 305 Sprint Car victory for his first Port Royal Speedway victory of the season. The win was Duke’s third career Speedway triumph and moved him into a four-way tie for 9th all-time on the Speedway winners list..

Lining up from the outside front row, Duke blasted out to the early lead in the 20-lap race. However it was 14th starter Kassidy Kreitz that had the fans on their feet as she raced into the top-five by lap three.

Kreitz took second on lap five and stayed glued to the bottom of the Speedway in chase of Duke. With 12 laps to go, Duke was in heavy lapped traffic and two laps later Kreitz was all over the tail tank of the savvy veteran.

Coming out of turn two with eights laps to go, Kreitz streaked under Duke down the backstretch, only for the pass to be negated as a car caught fire in turn two to bring out the red flag. The restart gave Duke the clean air he desperately needed and he went on the lead the final eight laps to score the victory by a margin of 2.760 seconds over Kreitz.

Dave Grube, Garrett Bard and Austin Reed rounded out the rest of the top-five. Doug Dodson, pole sitter Rowdy Heffner, Mikkell McGee, Nick Sweigart and hard charger Jeff Weaver completed the top ten. Weaver earned an additional $100 courtesy of Penns Valley Meat Market as he went 25th to 10th and was the biggest mover,

“It seems like forever since we won a race and the track was really to our liking,” said Duke. “We got lucky and got started on the front row, but lapped traffic was hurting us. Kassidy has us beat and luckily that caution came out and we got clean air and we were good from there.”

305 Sprint Car Feature Finish, 20 Laps: 1. Ken Duke; 2. Kassidy Kreitz; 3. Dave Grube; 4. Garrett Bard; 5. Austin Reed; 6. Doug Dodson; 7. Rowdy Heffner; 8. Mikell McGee; 9. Nick Sweigart; 10.

URC 360 Sprint Cars

Jason Shultz charged from the sixth starting position to overtake Anthony Macri and Ryan Smith to score the $2000 Port Royal Speedway victory. The win continued a trend of 410 Sprint Car drivers winning in the division at ‘The Speed Palace’ and came by 1.187 seconds.

“There was a little bit of rubber down there and usually Macri is beating down the outside fence, so we were beating down the inside fence,” said Shultz. “Macri tried the outside there, but ultimately the bottom was the place to be and we ended up here tonight.”

Smith and Macri both pulled double duty for the night and they led the field to the green flag. Macri got the jump form the outside front row and he led the opening 10 laps of the race. However he struggled in lapped traffic and allowed Smith to sneak under him exiting turn two to take the lead and lead lap 11.

The caution flew for a car slowing in turn four and Macri tried to use the outside during a double wide restart to take point, but couldn’t complete the pass. Shultz capitalized and was able to go from fourth to second and set his sights on Smith.

With six laps to go, Shultz was all over the tail tank of Smith and the following lap he snuck under the leader to grab the point with five laps to go. A caution with three laps to go set up a late dash for the win, however Shultz was not to be denied as he cruised home to the victory aboard the Ritter Racing No. 35.

Smith, Macri, Adam Carberry and Micheal Walter rounded out the top-five while Robbie Kendall, Andy Best, Kyle Smith, Pauly Colagiovanni and Jordan Thomas completed the top-ten.

“We havn’t won too many times and with my kids here I guess this is a good time to win,” said Shultz. “There is a lot of people here tonight and it looked like it was going to rain, so I just got to thank everyone for sticking it out and making this happen.”

URC 360 Sprint Car Feature Finish, 25 Laps: 1. Jason Shultz; 2. Ryan Smith; 3. Anthony Macri; 4. Adam Carberry; 5. Michael Walter II; 6. Robbie Kendall; 7. Andy Best; 8. Kyle Smith; 9. Paulie Colagiovanni; 10. Jordan Thomas; 11. Joe Kata; 12. Shawn Donath; 13. Derek Locke; 14. Connor Leoffler; 15. Tyler Denochick; 16. Brian Carber; 17. Cody Fletcher; 18. Denny Pebbles; 19.

First Williams Grove World Of Outlaws Invasion Of 2021 Just Two Weeks Away

Can Brad Sweet Overcome In Morgan Cup Weekend To Claim First Grove Win?

4/25/21

Mechanicsburg – The first assault of the season by the NOS Energy Drink World of Outlaws Sprint Cars Series on the Pennsylvania Posse is just two weeks away at Williams Grove Speedway.

Slated for May 14 and 15, H & N Landscaping of Mechanicsburg will present a two-day outlaws stand at Williams Grove.

Adult general admission for each night of the Williams Grove outlaws stand is set at $30 with youth ages 13 –20 admitted for $15.

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

Both of the weekend’s racing programs will pay $10,000 to win with Friday’s main event going 25 laps while the Saturday feature will go for 30.

Saturday’s winner will receive an additional 5K to be declared the 2021 Morgan Cup Champion to go along with bragging rights as Morgan Cup Champion for a year of either the World of Outlaws series stars or those of the Pennsylvania Posse.

Outlaws champion Brad Sweet, “The Big Cat,” of Grass Valley California will enter the fracas in firm control of the World of Outlaws season point standings as he vies for his third series title in a row at the wheel of Kasey Kahne’s No. 49.

Sweet has five wins on the outlaws season to date although several other drivers have scored including Sheldon Haudenschild, David Gravel, Logan Schuchart, James McFadden, Carson Macedo and Aaron Reutzel.

However Williams Grove Speedway hasn’t exactly been kind to Sweet over the years as the Californian has yet to crack the winner’s circle despite making it onto the podium on a few occasions.

Sweet will be trying to change that during the May 14/15 outlaws and posse match-up.

Aaron Reutzel, aboard the Roth No. 83, may be one to watch with the outlaws when he gets back to Williams Grove in two weeks as the Texas native has really learned his way around the big half-mile in recent seasons.

Reutzel became the first and remains the only All Stars driver to take an All Stars win at the oval since he took his first track chckers back in 2019 before going on to claim two more.

At Williams Grove, no driver has been dominant with four main events to date producing four different winners including Freddie Rahmer, Justin Peck Kyle Larson and Lucas Wolfe.

Rahmer is the current oval point leader.

Perennial outlaws killer at Williams Grove, posse pilot Lance Dewease seems poised to score his elusive 100th career speedway win and nothing would please the Fayetteville flyer more than to do so over the outlaws big dogs.

Advanced reserved seat tickets for all 2021 Williams Grove Speedway and the NOS Energy Drink World of Outlaws Sprint Cars Series events are available exclusively through the NOS Energy Drink World of Outlaws.

Fans who wish to obtain any reserved seats for any of the six outlaws events at the track in 2021 can purchase tickets via the official outlaws official website located at www.worldofoutlaws.com/tix or by calling 1.844.DIRT.TIX.

Wednesday, May 12 (7:30PM) World of Outlaws Gettysburg Clash [rain date: Thursday, May 13]

Abbottstown, PA (April 24, 2021) – Going into Saturday night’s racing competition Tyler Ross had one career 410 win at Lincoln and that came almost exactly 5 years and 1 week ago on April 16, 2016. Ross teamed up with car owner Rick Lefever for 2021 after an off-season that saw Ross put in a lot of work physically and mentally to prepare for the upcoming season. All of Ross’s hard work paid off on Saturday when he charged from his twelfth place starting spot to victory lane.

Dwight Leppo started on the pole of the 30-lap feature with Scott Fisher lined up on the outside of the front row.

Fisher used the top or turns 1 and 2 to lead down the back stretch. Jim Siegel got under Leppo as they drove into turn 3 to take second.

Ross used the high line around the track to drive from twelfth to fourth in two laps.

Siegel was closing in on Fisher as they approached lapped traffic when the yellow flag came out on lap 9. Tim Glatfelter was sitting in turns 3 and 4 facing traffic. Glatfelter rejoined the field.

Fisher led Siegel, Ross, Matt Campbell and Alan Krimes on the restart.

Siegel looked to the inside of Fisher for the lead which left the door open for Ross to drive by Siegel for second. Siegel slide Ross back in an attempt to reclaim second, but Ross held on.

Campbell closed in on Ross and Siegel as they battled for position and drove by Siegel for third coming out of turn 4 on lap 11.

Campbell was all over Ross trying to take over second when the yellow came out on lap 12. Billy Dietrich did a 360 spin in turn 1. Dietrich kept going, but Kerry Madsen got collected in the spin ending his night.

The top five for the restart were Fisher, Ross, Campbell, Siegel and Krimes. Ross tried the bottom on the restart in an attempt to take the lead while also holding off Campbell as he made a run for second.

Ross was closing in on Fisher at the halfway point and pulled a slide job in turns 3 and 4 on lap 16 and took the lead at the line by inches. Campbell followed and took over the second spot.

Ross and Campbell were both riding the wall around the track as they caught the tail end of the field on lap 22. Just as the leaders started to work their way through lapped traffic, the caution came out on lap 23 for Austin Bishop who slowed on the back stretch. Bishop came to a stop in turn 4 after having lost his brakes.

With seven laps to go Ross led Campbell, Krimes, Fisher and Chase Dietz to the cone for the restart. Both Ross and Campbell were looking to score career win number two at Lincoln in the 410 division.

Ross scored his first win of 2021 by .954 seconds over Campbell. Krimes crossed the line third and Freddie Rahmer finished fourth. Dietz completed the top five.

Heat race winners were Dwight Leppo, Glenndon Forsythe and Scott Fisher.

Bob Stough Best in Thrilling Legends Feature Finish

Bob Stough started on the pole for the 20-lap feature on Saturday night with young-gun, Stephen Wurtzer lined up on his outside. Despite the pole position, the win for Stough was not a walk in the park as he won a thrilling three-car battle that came down to the final turn.

When the green flag dropped on the field Wurtzer used the outside to lead the field out of turn 2. Stough was running second with Shaun Abney in third. Chris Transeau, who had won Friday night at Trail-Way Speedway to take the first race in the Wurtzer Garage Shoot Out, found himself in fourth place.

Wurtzer and Stough were pulling away from Abney and the rest of the field.

Stough had a solid run in the turns and was right on Wurtzer’s bumper.

Jeremy Ott was up to fifth from his ninth starting spot on lap 4. Stough looked to the outside of Wurtzer on the back stretch with Wurtzer holding onto the lead.

Lap 6 was an exciting one as Ott drove by Transeau for fourth and Stough looked to the outside of Wurtzer going into turn 3 to take the lead.

Wurtzer did not let Stough get far, and Ott was reeling them in as the laps ticked down.

Wurtzer was all over Stough at the halfway point trying to find a way to take back the lead. The two raced side by side at the line on lap 11 with Stough holding the advantage.

Ott caught up with Stough and Wurtzer to make it a three-car battle for the lead. Ott looked for a way under Wurtzer on lap 13 with Wurtzer holding the spot by a nose at the line. Only .163 seconds separated first and third.

Ott got by Wurtzer for second at the line with five laps to go. Wurtzer had the spot back by a nose on the following lap, now with only .149 seconds separating the top three cars.

A caution on lap 17 cooled down the action on the track momentarily. Choya Young stopped on the track coming out of turn 4.

With only three laps remaining Stough had to hold off Ott, Wurtzer, Transeau and his teammate Travis Perry on the restart.

Ott showed his nose under Stough in turns 1 and 2 with Wurtzer right behind him.

Stough had the lead when the white flag waved. Wurtzer got by Ott coming out of turn 2 and coming out of turn 4 it was a fierce battle to the checkered flag.

Stough won the race by .165 seconds over Ott. Wurtzer crossed the line third only .207 seconds behind Stough. Transeau finished fourth to claim the Wurtzer Garage Shoot Out Championship. Perry finished fifth, crossing the line under a second behind Stough.

Central PA Legends heat winners were Josh Schrum, Travis Perry, Bob Stough and Stephen Wurtzer.

Michael Altobelli Continues to Dominate in Mid Atlantic Modifieds

Michael Altobelli came into Saturday night’s competition having gone three for three in Mid Atlantic Modified races so far in 2021. With his $1,000 win at Lincoln, he made it four wins in four races on the season.

Steve Axtell started on the pole of the 25-lap feature and took the lead going into turn 1 with Jared Spalding racing him wheel-to-wheel down the back stretch. Spalding had the lead at the line with sixth starting Altobelli already working his way into second.

Jimmy Jesmer and Brandon Householder battled for fourth with Jesmer taking the spot.

Altobelli was reeling in Spalding and showed his nose to the leader on lap 5. The two raced side by side coming out of turn 4 with Spalding holding onto the top spot.

The yellow flag came out on lap 6 for TJ DeHaven who got spun around in turn 4.

The field lined up for a Delaware style restart, with the leader, Spalding, out front and the rest of the field side by side behind him.

Spalding continued to hold off Altobelli until lap 9 when Altobelli took the lead coming out of turn 4.

Cody Oliver raced his way to fourth from his 11th starting spot and Mike Franklin was up to fifth after starting 13th.

Altobelli was pulling away from Spalding and the rest of the field at the halfway point of the race when the caution came out on lap 16 for Spalding who came to a stop in turn 4.

Altobelli led the field for the Delaware style restart with Axtell and Oliver lined up behind him.

Oliver got by Axtell for second and it did not take long for Franklin to take third from Axtell.

Jesmer got high in turn 4 and ended up turned around bringing out the caution on lap 18.

Franklin got by Oliver for second on the restart. The top four were pulling away from the rest of the field as the laps wound down.

Altobelli got to the checkered flag first ahead of Franklin. Oliver finished third and Axtell held on to cross the line fourth. Brandon Householder completed the top five.

Next Saturday, May 1, Lincoln Speedway is back in action with 410 Sprint Cars, 358 Sprints (Summer Series) and Penn-Mar Vintage. Racing starts at 7:30PM with pit gates opening at 5PM and grandstand gates opening at 5:30PM.

Lucas Wolfe Wins First In Williams Grove Sprints Since 2019, Locke Repeats In 358s

Mechanicsburg – Lucas Wolfe wired the field for the 25-lap sprint car victory at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, taking his first oval win since July of 2019.

Wolfe started on the pole of the feature aboard the Allebach No. 5W and never looked back to record his 22nd career speedway win.

In the 20-lap 358 sprint main, Derek Locke won for the second week in a row to notch his fifth career Williams Grove Speedway victory and tie his father Howie on the all-time win list.

Wolfe was chased by Kyle Moody when the 410 sprint feature got underway and caution flags with two and four laps completed forced restarts.

Moody failed to produce a challenge on either of those restarts and was trailing along with Chad Trout and Alan Krimes when another yellow flag bunched the field with nine laps away.

For the restart, 15th starter Anthony Macri lined up sixth followed by 14th starter Justin Peck.

And Peck was the man on the move during the second half of the event as Wolfe led the pack.

Peck, of Monrovia, Indiana, got by Alan Krimes for fifth with 11 laps to go and then pulled up on Dylan Cisney for fourth with nine to go.

One by one Peck blasted by both Trout and then Moody to race into second, overtaking Trout on a restart with six laps to go.

But that final restart killed the momentum that Peck had going before the yellow and it cleared and cleaned the track for Wolfe’s drive to the finish.

With open track, Wolfe was able to maintain control during the final five laps to get the win with hard charging Peck finishing second aboard the Tom Buch No. 13.

Freddie Rahmer, who started 13th in the field, came on strong during the second half as well, driving up to third for the finish.

Dylan Cisney was fourth and Moody was fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Krimes, Macri, Troy Wagaman Jr., Chad Trout and Chase Dietz.

Heats went to Wolfe, Moody and Trout with Lance Dewease taking the consolation race before scratching for the main event.

Matt Findley grabbed the early lead in the 20-lap main event for the 358 Sprints while Zach Newlin trailed.

Findley began lapping slower cars as Locke challenged Newlin for second at the halfway point.

A yellow flag interrupted the battle with 10 laps to go and Locke used the middle groove of turn one to pass Newlin on the restart.

Another yellow slowed the pace before Locke again used the middle on the restart to stay with Findley.

The pair was nose-to-tail off the second turn and around the track as action resumed before Locke got next to Findley and pulled even with him down the backchute .

Locke then took the lead by a nose at the flagstand with six laps to go before pulling away.

Findley, Newlin, Steve Owings and Zachary Cool completed the top five.

Scott Fisher, Chris Frank, Cody Fletcher, Chad Criswell and Devin Adams rounded out the top ten.

Heat races for the 22 cars were won by Fletcher, Newlin and Owings

BRADY BACON MAKES IT FOUR USAC WINS IN A ROW AT GRANDVIEW, CRAIG VONDOHREN TOPS MODIFIED FEATURE IN THUNDER ON THE HILL SERIES OPENER

BECHTELSVILLE, PA (April 22, 2021) – The NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series kicked off their 32nd season of racing action at Grandview Speedway with an exciting doubleheader that found Brady Bacon claim the USAC National Sprint Car Series 40-lap event and Craig VonDohren win the 358 Modified portion of the program. It was a chilly night on the hill but a speedy and efficiently run show was completed by 9:45 PM.

Two years have passed since the USAC National Sprint Car Series has taken laps at Grandview Speedway, but the result hasn’t changed as ‘The Macho Man’ Brady Bacon claimed his fourth consecutive USAC win.

“Grandview has quickly become one of my favorite tracks, and I look forward to coming here every year,” Bacon said in USAC Victory lane. “I knew if I could get to second, I’d be in a good position to get the win.”

Kevin Thomas Jr. jumped to the front of the pack at the drop of the green flag with Brandon Mattox, Tim Buckwalter, and Bacon in hot pursuit. Thomas gained a full-straight-a-way lead in the initial circuits while the battle for second heated up.

Bacon charged into third position on the sixth lap, and powered outside of Mattox coming out of turn two, moving into the second position just two laps later. The yellow flew for sixth-place competitor, Chris Windom, who spun after contact slowing the action for the first time of the night.

Losing his sizable lead, Thomas maintained the top spot on the restart with Bacon on his tail. The two diced around the topside of the one-third mile high banks, and battled side-by-side down the straightaways, working their way through heavy lapped traffic.

As the scoreboard ticked passed lap 20, Bacon slid high in turn four and dove to the inside of Thomas to complete the pass for the lead, quickly pulling a full 1 second advantage over Thomas.

The red flag flew on lap 29 for Steven Drevicki, who tagged the wall and flipped between turns 3 and 4.

Bacon continued his quest for four in-a-row on the restart, but Thomas wasn’t done, closing in during the later stages of the event, rapidly switching lanes but unable to make a move on Bacon, who scored the win and the $6,000 payday.

Kevin Thomas Jr. settled for second, Robert Ballou in third from the 13th starting position, Tanner Thorson finished in fourth and Jake Swanson rounded out the top five.

Bacon’s win tied him for the most consecutive Thunder on the Hill Racing Series wins, a record held by Greg Hodnett.

Boyertown, Pennsylvania’s Craig Von Dohren picked up the win in the 30-lap 358 Modified portion of the event scoring the $3,000 top prize.

“The thing about Grandview is that you never know how close someone is, so you always have to be prepared and stay up on the wheel,” Von Dohren said in NAPA Auto Parts Victory Lane.

Alex Yankowski started on the pole position and led the first two circuits with heavy pressure from two of Grandview’s winningest drivers, Von Dohren and Duane Howard .

Von Dohren powered passed Yankowski exiting turn two and charged to a sizable lead, with Howard moving into the second position.

The only challenge came when CVD battled through lapped traffic at the mid-way point of the event, but a caution with five laps to go offered up an open track and the ability to coast onto victory.

Duane Howard finished in the second position, Alex Yankowski in third, Jeff Strunk in fourth and Doug Manmiller in fifth.

ZEMCO Headers presented $50 Gift Certificates the USAC Heat Race and Semi Winners: Alex Bright, Joey Biasi, Chris Windom, and Briggs Danner and one to the worst 358 Modified starting line-up draw car won by Rick Laubach.

Modified Heat Race Winners Duane Howard, Jared Umbenhauer, and Doug Manmiller were presented with $100 courtesy of Harry & George Turner of GT Automotive & GT Radiator Repairs. $100 was also presented to both the USAC Sprint Car and 358 Modified winning Crew Chief courtesy of Robert Altman.

Robert Altman, who always has the Thunder on the Hill fans in mind, said ‘Thank You’ by presenting lucky fans with $10 WAWA gift cards.

The NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series returns to Grandview Speedway on Sunday, May 30 with the ‘Roaring Triple 20s’ event featuring three 20-lap feature events for the Big-Block and 358 Modifieds, along with the Sportsman, and Outlaw Racing Series Vintage cars.

PORT ROYAL, Pa. (April 17, 2021) - It was a dogfight to the end, but three-time Port Royal Speedway track champion, Logan Wagner, stood his ground and prevailed on Saturday evening at the “Speed Palace,” eventually capping the annual Keith Kauffman Classic featuring the FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 as the main attraction on the Port Royal victory lane platform. Forced to outduel Clauson Marshall Racing’s Tyler Courtney, as well as a hard-charging Anthony Macri, Wagner’s Keith Kauffman Classic victory allowed the Harrisonville-native to bump his All Star win total to two, earning a cool $10,000 in the process. Wagner’s last visit to All Star victory lane occurred at Lernerville Speedway in 2017.

“This is a weight lifted off of my shoulders for the whole year,” Logan Wagner said in victory lane. “I mean, we won against the All Stars. I just can’t thank everyone enough who helps get this car to the track. We’ve been really fast lately, just haven’t been able to get that first win until now. What a way to do it.”

Lining up fourth on the main event grid, Wagner’s march to the front initiated quickly. A move around Jeff Halligan on lap five maneuvered Wagner to third, picking off Outlaw invader, Jacob Allen, for second just two circuits later. In the meantime, 2021 All Star Rookie of the Year contender, Tyler Courtney, was the man in charge, utilizing his pole position to score the early advantage.

Although Courtney was able to stretch his legs and create some space between himself and the rest of the field, a run-in with traffic on lap ten would create the negative momentum shift that Wagner benefited from. By lap 14, Wagner was all over the back bumper of Courtney, applying pressure lap after lap and nearly getting by the Indianapolis-native with four consecutive slide job attempts at the exit of turn four. Despite Wagner’s persistence, Courtney held strong, keeping the Zemco Speed Equipment/Zemco Tool and Die/Zemco Headers/No. 1 at bay.

His ability to hold off Wagner was impressive, banging the boards all the way around Port Royal Speedway, but lap 22 would prove to be the end of Courtney’s reign. In an attempt to split a pair of lappers, Courtney’s momentum faded, ultimately slipping up the surface which opened the door for Wagner to sneak through. Wagner would go on to lead the circuit, now with Courtney, Jacob Allen, and Anthony Macri in tow.

Macri started 21st, forced to do so after a heat race incident left him to participate in the evening's B-Main.

A two position jump over Allen and Courtney propelled Macri to second on lap 28, next setting aim on Wagner. Just what the “Concrete Kid” needed, caution flags appeared on the final circuit setting up what would be back-to-back green-white-checkered restarts. The first restart attempt was called back due to another caution, but the second restart went off as planned. Macri did his best to overtake Wagner, even attempting a slider between turns one and two, but a drag race down the backstretch, and a quick chop into three, would go in Wagner’s favor.

“I had to chop him a little bit, but that’s just the way it goes,” Wagner added. “We were banging wheels a little bit racing down the backstretch. It was a pretty exciting last two laps.”

Anthony Macri held on to finish second, followed by Ian Madsen, Jacob Allen, and Lance Dewease.

Moving ahead, the All Star Circuit of Champions will conclude their four-race stretch with the $6,000-to-win Johnny Grum Classic at Bedford Speedway on Sunday, April 18.

EXCITEMENT FILLED WELDON STERNER MEMORIAL GOES TO FREDDIE RAHMER; Ashley Cappetta Wires Field for Second Career Victory

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Saturday, April 24, 2021 (7:30PM) 410 Sprints + Central PA Legends and Mid-Atlantic Modifieds (York County Racing Club Night)

Saturday, May 1 (7:30PM) 410 Sprints + 358 Sprints (Summer Series) and Penn-Mar Vintage

Saturday, May 8 (7:30PM) 410 Sprints + Super Sportsman (Tour Series) and Extreme Stocks

Abbottstown, PA (April 17, 2021) – The 18th Annual Weldon Sterner Memorial was one for the ages with three different leaders on the final lap. In the end Freddie Rahmer came out on top winning the $6,900 in his first win of the season at Lincoln.

The night started with Bradley Howard setting quick time over the 32 car field, with a lap of 13.276 seconds. The Pennsylvania Speedweek format was followed and a redraw was held for the first eight spots in the feature starting line-up.

Tim Shaffer drew the number 1 pill to start on the pole of the 33-lap feature. Matt Campbell, who was running a #69 Sterner Cement wing for the memorial race, lined up second.

Shaffer took the lead when the green flag dropped with Austin Bishop moving into second. Campbell went to the top in turns 1 and 2 and took second back and Freddie Rahmer followed, taking third coming out of turn 4.

Rahmer drove under Campbell in turns 3 and 4 to take second on lap 2. Chase Dietz went to work on Campbell for third and the two battled for the position with Campbell having the better run in turns 1 and 2 and Dietz holding the advantage in 3 and 4.

Just as Shaffer had started to work his way through lapped traffic, the yellow flag came out on lap 8 for Cory Haas who came to a stop on the front stretch.

Shaffer led Freddie, Campbell, Dietz and Bishop for the single-file restart. Shaffer went to the bottom in turns 1 and 2 with Rahmer opting for the middle line. Dietz got by Campbell for third.

Shaffer was getting a great run off of turn 2 and Dietz was closing in on Rahmer for third as the leaders caught the tail-end of the field on lap 15.

You could throw a blanket over the top three, Shaffer, Rahmer and Dietz as they all raced for the lead. Dietz slid Rahmer on lap 15 for second, but Rahmer slid him right back on the next lap to reclaim the runner-up spot. Despite lapped traffic the battle for second continued to rage on.

Dietz was back in second on lap 19 and made a move for the lead in turn 4 to no avail. Two laps later, Rahmer was back in second and the battle for second was halted by a red flag on lap 22 when Tyler Ross flipped in turn 4.

The top five for the restart were Shaffer, Freddie, Dietz, Campbell and Troy Wagaman.

Rahmer looked to the outside of Shaffer in turns 1 and 2 for the lead but could not complete the pass.

Tim Wagaman was working on Troy Wagaman to get into the top five and took the spot on lap 25.

Rahmer was able to stay within striking distance of Shaffer by using the high line around the track.

Lapped traffic was looming in front of the leaders as the laps wound down. Dietz was closing in on Rahmer and both Dietz and Rahmer were closing in on the leader, Shaffer. Rahmer and Dietz were wheel-to-wheel at the line when the white flag waved.

Rahmer passed Shaffer and had the lead coming out of turn 2. Dietz had a great run down the back stretch and got his nose under Rahmer for the lead for a brief moment in turns 3 and 4. As the top three came out of turn 4 for the checkered flag, it was anyone’s race.

Rahmer held on to win his first Weldon Sterner Memorial. Shaffer edged by Dietz for second. Only .306 seconds separated the top three at the line. Campbell finished fourth and Tim Wagaman, the hard charger of the race, finished fifth advancing eight spots after lining up 13th.

Heat race winners were Austin Bishop, Glenndon Forsythe, Tim Shaffer and Chase Dietz.

Ashley Cappetta Wires Field for Second Career Victory

Ashley Cappetta and Wyatt Hinkle shared the front row for the 20-lap feature on Saturday night.

Cappetta led the field into turn 1 with cars racing nearly three wide behind her for second.

Hinkle and Findley were wheel to wheel at the line with Findley claiming the second spot. Justin Foster entered the mix to make it a three car battle for second.

Foster got by Hinkle for third on lap 4 before the yellow flew on lap 5 when Brett Strickler and David Holbrook got together in turn 4. Both Strickler and Holbrook rejoined the field.

Cappetta let Findley, Foster, Hinkle and Tyler Esh on the restart.

Findley was all over Cappetta on the restart searching for a way into the top spot. Foster reeled in Findley and used the outside to claim second but another caution came before the lap was completed.

Both Jordan Strickler and Zachary Allman were stopped on the track and both drivers were able to rejoin the field.

Once again Findley was searching the track for a way to get by Cappetta on the restart. While Findley was searing Foster got by him by second and this time the pass was official. Foster showed his nose under Cappetta at the line, but she held on to the lead.

The yellow flag flew again on lap 7 when Cody Fletcher got turned around in turn 4 and Austen Treuchet was stopped in turn 3. Fletcher and Treuchet rejoined.

Foster looked to the outside of Cappetta on the restart and the two drag raced down the back stretch with Cappetta holding onto the lead.

Jeff Rohrbaugh entered the top five on lap 8 after lining up 14th for the start of the 20-lap feature.

Foster was still on Cappetta’s bumper and the two raced wheel-to-wheel at the line on lap 13.

Lap 14 saw the yellow flag wave when Dylan Orwig, Treuchet and Allman got together in turns 1 and 2.

The top five for the final restart of the race were Cappetta, Foster, Findley, Hinkle and Rohrbaugh.

Foster tried the outside again but Cappetta held him off in turns 3 and 4. As the laps wound down Foster fell back allowing Cappetta to gain a significant lead.

Cappetta took the checkered flag for her second career feature win 1.570 seconds ahead of Foster. Findley held on to finish third. Hinkle crossed the line fourth and Rohrbaugh completed the top five.

358 sprint car heat winners were Hayden Miller, Tyler Esh and Mason Chaney.

“I Just Like Racin’ Race Cars,” says Kyle Larson Before Wiping Up Williams Grove All Stars Tommy Classic Field

Derek Locke Wins First Race Of Season For 358 Sprints

4/16/21

Mechanicsburg – Kyle Larson took his first 410-sprint car start of the year and wiped up the field at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night for a $6,000 payday in the All Stars Tommy Hinnershitz Classic.

It was his second win in a row in one of the track’s marquee events for the big sprint cars after also scoring the race last season.

“It’s cool to get a win our first night out,” Larson said after trouncing Lance Dewease in the 30-lap contest as Dewease was trying to get his elusive 100th career speedway victory.

Larson recently scored a huge win in dirt late model action in Bristol, Tennessee, and prior to that he scored his first NASCAR Sprint Series checkers of the season on the tour while wheeling for Rick Hendrick.

And on Friday night he overtook good friend Lance Dewease on lap 10 to drive away to a popular win aboard Paul Silva’s No. 57 in the All Stars Circuit of Champions Sprints event.

“I used to hate this place. Once I came here with Paul I don’t know if we’ve been outside the top three or four,” Larson said in victory lane.

“Now that I’m fast, I love this place!”

Dewease and Larson shared the front row for the start of the big event with Dewease getting the jump on Larson at the beginning.

The red flag then appeared with three laps down for a turned over TJ Stutts on the backstretch.

Larson stuck with Dewease when action resumed, not letting him get away and as the leaders came up on traffic, Larson took his first swipe at Dewease in the third and fourth corners on lap nine and quickly closed the gap on the pacesetter.

That gave Larson the run he wanted down the frontchute and when Dewease dropped off of the cushion and set the car in low in the first turn, Larson just blew by him around the top to get the lead on lap 10.

“I could close on Lance no matter where I ran in one and two so I knew I had a better car,” Larson said.

And he took Dewease by surprise.

“ I really didn’t think he was that close to me,” Dewease said.

Shortly after being scored the leader, a final caution flag unfurled and Larson simply walked off when action resumed.

He entered the rear of the field on lap 17 which allowed Dewease to close the gap somewhat but Larson was flawless in traffic and pulled away to the finish, taking the win while going away by 2.707 seconds.

Freddie Rahmer rode home third followed by Ian Maadsen and Anthony Macri.

Sixth through 10th went to Tony Stewart, Tim Shaffer, Kerry Madsen, Tyler Courtney and Paul McMahan.

Heats went to Ian Madsen, Stewart, Kerry Madsen and Shaffer with Brent Shearer taking the B Main.

Dewease and Larson won the dashes to earn the feature front row.

Dewease set fast time over the 35 car field with a lap of 16.315 seconds.

Wyatt Hinkle led the first lap of the 20-lap 358 sprint main before Tyler Breahm drove into the lead.

Defending track champion Derek Locke started eighth in the field and he was already up to second behind Brehm on lap four.

Brehm drove a stout race and forced Locke to wrestle him for the lead before the Carlisle driver got around for control with eight laps to go.

It was Locke’s fourth career oval victory.

Brehm rode home second followed by Chris Frank, Cody Fletcher and Kyle Denmyer.

Heats went to Brett Wanner, Brehm and Denmyer.

APRIL 25 TILLEY CLASSIC FOR 410 SPRINT CARS & SUPER LATE MODELS NEXT ON SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY’S 75th ANNIVERSARY SCHEDULE!

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Selinsgrove Speedway will honor the memory of the track’s all-time career leading sprint car feature winner with the running of the Icon Legacy Custom Modular Homes Ray Tilley Classic for the Lelands.com 410 sprint cars at 6 p.m. Sunday, April 25.

Joining the 410 sprint cars on the special Sunday night racing card will be the Jeff’s Auto Body & Recycling Center super late models. Track gates will open at 4 p.m.

The 30-lap Tilley tribute race will pay $5,088 to win and $400 to start out of a total purse of $19,888. Time trials, heat races, and a B-main will be the qualifying format. The April 25 race will be the first of the season for the Lelands.com 410 sprint cars.

The super late models will compete in a 25-lap race paying $3,000 to win and $300 to start. Gregg Satterlee of Rochester Mills scored the late model season opener at the track on April 10.

For fans who cannot attend the race, the event can be purchased as a live streaming broadcast on sprintcarunlimited.tv.

The late Ray Tilley of Pine Grove clinched four career sprint car titles (1965-66 and 1968-69) at Selinsgrove Speedway at the wheel of the Bud Grimm Special No. 88 and remains on top of the track’s all-time sprint car win list with 69 career victories. Tilley passed away on Aug. 9, 2011, from complications of a stroke at the age of 77.

The Tilley Classics in 2012, 2014, and 2019 were cancelled due to weather. Last year’s race fell victim to the COVID-19 pandemic shutdown. The 2013 race was won by Brent Marks of Myerstown.

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY: A Motorsports Tradition for Generations

Selinsgrove Speedway’s grand motorsports tradition began July 20, 1946, when Bill Holland of Philadelphia won the first race. Since that historic day, Holland went on to win the 1949 Indy 500, and many of motorsports’ most famous drivers have turned laps at the iconic half-mile dirt track designed by legendary Hollywood stuntman and race car driver Joie Chitwood. The speedway, celebrating its momentous 75th anniversary in 2021, will continue its legacy of rip-roaring open wheel and stock car racing this season and for future generations!

Port Royal Set For Huge Weekend Doubleheader Featuring the All Star Circuit of Champions Sprint Cars and Lucas Oil Dirt Late Model Series

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Penn. (April 12, 20201)- Port Royal Speedway is gearing up for one of the biggest weekends of the entire season as both the FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 and the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series are coming to the speedway for a weekend doubleheader April 17-18.

The All Stars will kick off the action with the highly anticipated sixth annual Keith Kauffman Classic presented by Valley Supply Inc. on Saturday, April 17th. The drivers will be vying for a $10,000 prize, which is a $4000 increase from last year’s race.

This is the first of six scheduled events for the All Stars at Port Royal Speedway in 2021. Unique to this season though will be an increased purse for all events highlighted by the Bob Weikert Memorial paying $29,000 to win for the finale and the 54th annual Tuscarora 50 paying a record $54,000 to win. These two races are the highest paying winner’s shares on the 2021 All Star schedule at the moment.

Formed in 1970 as the first ‘Outlaw’ Sprint Car organization of the modern era, the All Stars series has been a staple in the Central Pa. region for decades past. In its current form, the series is owned by motorsports legend Tony Stewart (since 2015) and features some of the best drivers in winged sprint car action that the sport has to offer.

The event honors National Sprint Car Hall of Fame driver Kauffman, a 24-time winner with the All Stars and the winningest driver in the history of Port Royal Speedway. Along with the Sprint Cars, the Selinsgrove Ford Limited Late Models will be on the card competing for an increased $1500 to win.

Anthony Macri picked up the win during last year's event, which was postponed as a result of Covid-19 and held later in the season. Lance Dewease has won the event an unprecedented three times (2017-2019), while Dale Blaney was the winner of the race during its inaugural event in 2016.

Logan Wagner enters the weekend as the current Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Car points leader in search of his fourth consecutive track title/ Wagner leads Dylan Cisney by a mere 20 markers with Jeff Halligan (-70), Macri (-85) and Mike Wagner (-135) rounding out the rest of the top-five.

On the All Star side, Justin Peck enters the weekend as the points leader over Zeb Wise, Hunter Schuerenberg, Brent Marks and Cory Eliason.

Gates will open at 3pm with racing scheduled to begin at 6pm. General Admission is $25, Students are $10 and Pit Admission is $35.

Sunday April 18 will be the Lucas Oil Late Model Series first of four visits to the speedway in 2021 for the “River Valley 40” presented by River Valley Builders Modular Home Sales.

Series drivers like Brandon Sheppard, Devin Moran, and Hudson O’Neal will look to take on River Valley Builders Port Royal regulars like Gregg Satterlee, Jeff Rine, Andy Haus and all-time great Rick Eckert. All in quest of the $10,000 winners share!

Last year's event was cancelled as a result of Covid-19, but held later in the season as part of a three-day ‘Rumble By the River’ event. Past winners at the Speedway with the series are Kyle Larson, Tim McCreadie, Scott Bloomquist and Eckert.

O'Neal enters the weekend holding a 45-points lead in the Lucas Oil standings over Devin Moran. McCreadie is in third (-60), followed by Kyle Bronson (-120) and Brandon Sheppard (-125).

As far as the River Valley Builders Super Late Model competitors, Dylan Yoder holds a narrow 5-point advantage in the Port Royal track standings over Delaware native Ross Robinson. Gary Stuhler (-50), Colton Flinner (-80) and Trevor Feathers (-90) round out the top-five.

The Selinsgrove Ford Limited Late Models will compete on the card as well as part of a weekend doubleheader for the series. They will again be racing for an increased $1500 to win.

Devin Hart has won the last two Selinsgrove Ford Limited Late Model features at the Speedway and currently holds an 85-points advantage in the standings over Derrick Garman. Kenny Yoder (-90), Andrew Yoder (-95) and Shawn Shoemaker (-110) rounds out the top-five.

All gates will open at 2pm with racing scheduled to begin at 6pm. General admission is $25, students are $10 with pits costing $40.

 

 

Hinnershitz Legacy Honored Friday At Williams Grove

4/11/21

Mechanicsburg – This Friday’s All Stars sprint car show at Williams Grove Speedway is meant to honor its original winner. He was the first. He had one of the most recognizable names in motorsports history dating back to the 1930s.

On tap at Williams Grove on Friday will be the annual Tommy Hinnershitz Memorial Spring Classic, honoring the late, great racer from Oley that holds the distinction of winning the first ever race held at the brand new Williams Grove Speedway back on Sunday, May 21, 1939.

Hinnershitz won the race in what was called a “hard and heady” event to best the famed Joie Chitwood. Hinnershitz’s death in 1999 left behind an auto-racing legacy worthy of note by any standards.

During his 30-year career spanning 1930-1960, “The Fying Dutchman,” as he was known, amassed seven AAA/USAC Eastern Big Car Championships, taking titles in 1949, 1950, 1951, 1952, 1955, 1956 and in 1959.

He had garnered 103 total AAA/USAC feature wins with 19 taking place at Williams Grove. Hinnershitz set 43 AAA track records during his tenure and would compete in three Indianapolis 500s.

At the time of his death, the 87-year old was ranked second behind Steve Kinser on the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame’s Top Sprint Car Drivers of All Time list.

Back in 1939, when Hinnershitz passed Chitwood for the lead in that maiden race at Williams Grove, the duel was billed as “one of the most thrilling bits of driving ever witnessed on a Pennsylvania speedway.”

It was said that when Hinnershitz passed Chitwood, “the Big Chief was met with acclaim from the crowd.”

And Williams Grove will bestow even more worthy acclaim in the Big Chief’s honor this Friday night.

Adult general admission for the April 16 racing program is set at $25 with students ages 13-20 admitted for just $10.

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

Saturday, May 1 (7:30PM) 410 Sprints + 358 Sprints (Summer Series) and Penn-Mar Vintage

Abbottstown, PA (April 10, 2021) – After starting the season with six different winners in six races, Tim Shaffer became the first repeat winner of 2021 at Lincoln Speedway on Saturday night. Shaffer lined up sixth and avoided a late race mishap to take the checkered flag and the $4,000 prize.

Scott Fisher and Aaron Bollinger shared the front row for the start of the 30-lap feature. Bollinger, who is in his sophomore 410 season and just turned 21 last week, had the lead coming out of turn 2. Fisher was in second and Dylan Norris was running third down the back stretch. Shaffer got by both Fisher and Norris in turn 4 to drive from sixth to second on the first lap.

The yellow flag came out on lap 2 for Matt Campbell who got turned around in turn 1. Campbell went to the pits and the team made repairs in the two-minute work time to get the car back out on the track.

Bollinger led Shaffer, Norris, Tim Glatfelter and Fisher to the cone for the single-file restart.

Shaffer hung with Bollinger on the start and was using the bottom with Bollinger ripping the high line around the track. Chase Dietz entered the top 5 on lap 3.

Bollinger continued to dominate on the high side as he approached lapped traffic on lap 6. As Bollinger worked his way by lapped cars, he was able to maneuver anywhere on the track.

Shaffer stuck with Bollinger and was on his bumper on lap 10. Dietz moved up to third on lap 11 from his eighth place starting spot.

Bollinger put two lapped cars between him and Shaffer on lap 15, allowing Dietz to close in on Shaffer for second.

Bollinger and Dietz got together in turn 4 on lap 22 bringing out the red flag. Bollinger jumped the cushion in turn three, slowing him down. Dietz had already committed to a slider and collected Bollinger as he slid back up the track.

Shaffer inherited the lead and led Glatfelter, Norris, Tim Wagaman and Freddie Rahmer on the restart.

Wagaman was working the top to try and take third from Norris. While the two battled, Freddie got by Wagaman for fourth. Tyler Ross followed making his way into the top five after starting tenth.

The white flag waved just as Shaffer was catching the tail end of the field. Shaffer won his second feature of the season by 2.561 seconds over Glatfelter. Norris held on for a season best third place finish. Freddie finished fourth and Ross completed the top five.

Heat race winners were Glenndon Forsythe, Dylan Norris and Aaron Bollinger. Three cars advanced 11 positions in the feature, Freddie Rahmer (15th to 4th), Billy Dietrich (20th to 9th) and Alan Krimes (24th to 13th). Danny Dietrich, who pulled a double, racing at both Port Royal and Lincoln on Saturday, advanced 10 positions from 21st to 11th.

Hayden Miller Scores First Career 358 Sprint Victory

Hayden Miller is in the midst of his second season running 358 sprint cars after making the jump from micros. Not only did Miller win his first feature in the division, he wired the field leading from the drop of the green to the checkered flag.

Miller shared the front row with veteran racer, and last week’s winner, Jeff Rohrbaugh. Kody Hartlaub got by Rohrbaugh on the start to take second with Miller holding on to the lead. Steve Owings got by Hartlaub at the line to take second on the first lap.

The caution came out on lap 1 when Tyler Esh spun out in turn 2 nearly landing on his side. Esh collected Ashley Cappetta. Cappetta used her two minutes of work time and rejoined the field.

Miller led Owings, Hartlaub, Rohrbaugh and Cody Fletcher on the restart. Miller got a good jump on the restart and then the red flag came out on lap 2. Brett Strickler took a wild ride in turn 4.

Fletcher and Zane Rudisill battled for fifth as they swapped fifth and sixth back and forth multiple times each lap.

Owings was closing in on Miller as they approached lapped traffic when Brett Wanner brought out the yellow flag on lap 8. Wanner was trying to exit the track in turn 2, but stopped on the edge of the ramp.

Miller paced the field ahead of Owings, Hartlaub, Rohrbaugh and Rudisill for the restart.

Owings tried to get his nose under Miller in turn 1 but Miller held the top spot.

The red flag flew again on lap 10 when Jon Stewart got upside down in turns 3 and 4. It was a rough night for Stewart. In addition to flipping in the feature, Stewart caught on fire due to a loose fuel line during hot laps.

Once again Owings looked to the inside of Miller on the restart to no avail.

Rudisill passed Rohrbaugh and Hartlaub on the back stretch to get to move from fifth to third in one lap.

Rudisill used the top to reel in Owings. Owings hit the guardrail on the inside of turn 2 allowing Rudisill to close in for the pass. The two raced side-by-side at the line with Owings holding the slight advantage. Rudisill was better in turns 1 and 2 while Owing’s car was better in 3 and 4.

Dylan Orwig brought out the yellow flag on lap 17 when he spun out in turn 4.

The top five for the restart were Miller, Rudisill, Owings, Hartlaub and Fletcher.

Rudisill looked to the outside of Miller but he took the line away to hold the lead. Rudisill was on Miller’s bumper with two laps to go but couldn’t make the pass.

Miller won his first 358 sprint car feature by .264 seconds over Rudisill. Owings crossed the line third and Hartlaub finished fourth. Fletcher completed the top five.

358 sprint car heat races were won by Jeff Rohrbaugh, Kody Hartlaub and Jordan Strickler.

Scott Schaffer Wins Outlaw Vintage Feature

Wes Cassel and Dave Dissinger started on the front row of the 20-lap feature for the Outlaw Vintage Racing Series. Cassel took the lead when the green flag dropped.

Mark Hahn and Dissinger raced side-by-side for second with Hahn taking the spot. Hahn stayed with Cassel as they closed in on lapped traffic.

Scott Schaffer made his way to third from his eighth starting spot and was closing in on the leaders when the caution came out on lap 6 when Jeff Paulson got backwards in turn 2.

Cassel led Hahn, Schaffer, Dissinger and Dingo Kirkwood on the restart. Kirkwood and Dissinger battled for fourth with Kirkwood taking the spot.

Schaffer worked his way by Hahn for second. Lapped traffic came into play allowing Schaffer to get by Cassel for the lead. Schaffer pulled away and parked his #77s in victory lane. Cassel crossed the line second and Hahn finished third. Kirkwood was fourth and Paulson rebounded from his early race spin to complete the top five.

Next Saturday, April 17, Lincoln Speedway is back in action with 410 Sprint Cars (time trials) and 358 Sprint Cars for the 18th Annual Weldon Sterner Memorial. Racing starts at 7PM with pit gates opening at 4:30PM and grandstand gates opening at 5PM.

SATTERLEEE WINS ULMS LATE MODELS ON RECORD-BREAKING NIGHT;
MILLS OUTDRIVES 40-CAR FIELD FOR 305 SPRINT CAR THRILLER;
 

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Gregg Satterlee of Rochester Mills scored the super late model season opener at Selinsgrove Speedway in Saturday night’s high-speed 30-lap United Late Model Series-sanctioned event on Performance Food Group Night.

The $3,000 victory was the third of Satterlee’s career at the Snyder County half-mile oval and third overall this season at the wheel of the Keyser Manufacturing No. 22.

Defending track champion Jeff Rine of Danville set a new one-lap late model track record in qualifying with a 18.536 lap time.

Justin Mills of Bloomingburg, N.Y., came out the victor of a multi-car duel in the 20-lap Apache Tree Service PASS/IMCA 305 sprint car main event.

After being shut out of Victory Lane last year, Keith Bissinger of Orangeville scored his 58th career roadrunner feature in the division’s 12-lap season opening race.

The amount of $2,308 was raised from a driver helmet collection Saturday night to benefit driver Bryan Bernheisel who was injured in a late model accident at Williams Grove Speedway March 26.

Next on Selinsgrove Speedway’s 75th anniversary schedule will be the Ray Tilley Classic for the Lelands.com 410 sprint cars and super late models at 6 p.m. Sunday, April 25. The 30-lap sprint car tribute race sponsored by Icon Legacy Custom Modular Homes will pay $5,088 to win. The super late models will compete in a 25-lap main event paying $3,000 to win. Track gates will open at 4 p.m.

Front row starters Max Blair and Gregg Satterlee, both late model feature winners in central Pennsylvania this season, drag raced for the lead into the turn one with Satterlee getting the edge. Fourth-place starter Jeff Rine closely trailed the leaders in third.

The first caution flag waved on lap 11 when Larry Neiderer’s machine fell off the pace. On the ensuing restart, several cars collided in turns one and two but were able to restart.

Satterlee held the lead while storming around the smooth, fast half-mile in the 18-second lap bracket. For most of the race, Blair kept the leader in his sites while Rine struggled to catch them in third.

On a lap 14 restart, Rine, eighth-place starter Dylan Yoder, and sixth-place starter Mason Zeigler raced three-wide for the third spot while Satterlee and Blair continued to lead the way at the halfway point.

D. Yoder eventually settled into the third position after a spirited battle with Rine and Zeigler. The final caution flag regrouped the field on lap 23 when Kenny Trevitz fell off the pace.

At the finish, Satterlee was victorious over Blair, D. Yoder, Rine, and seventh-place starter Dan stone.

Polesitter Christian Rumset powered into the lead at the start of the 305 sprint car feature. Rumset was chased by third-place starter Justin Mills and second-place starter Dakota Sweigart.

The race was stopped on lap six when 19th-place starter Kassidy Kreitz hit the frontsretch wall and rolled over in her 69K. Kreitz was not injured. When the race resumed, a duel for the lead unfolded between Rumsey and Mills for several laps.

On the 13th circuit, Mills made the winning pass using the inside lane off turn four but not without being challenged the rest of the way. On the final lap, the red flag unfurled when Jared Zionkowski’s car burst into flames. Zionkowski escaped without injury.

For the one-lap chase to the checkered flag, Rumsey made a last-ditch effort to pass Mills for the lead and win to no avail. Mills scored a narrow victory over Rumsey, sixth-place starter Doug Dodson, seventh-place starter Ken Duke, and Sweigart.

Outside front row starter Keith Bissinger took the lead on the initial start of the roadrunner feature. On a second attempt Bissinger led original third-place starter Jake Jones at the drop of the green flag.

On each subsequent restart, Bissinger and Jones pulled away from the field in a showdown of past champions. The race was stopped on lap seven when Scott Dunham struck the inside backstretch guardrail. He was not injured.

When the race restarted, Bissinger kept Jones at bay for the victory. Seventh-place starter Nate Romig finished in third with a strong showing, followed by Terry Kramer and Adam Campbell in the top five.

Anthony Macri Earns First Win of 2021; Bright goes two in a row as does Hart

PORT ROYAL, PA – Anthony Macri grabbed the lead early and drove off
from there winning the 25-lap Sprint car feature in dominating fashion
Saturday night at Port Royal Speedway.

In other action, it was Alex Bright winning the USAC East Coast 360
Sprint feature, and Devin Hart scoring his second straight limited
late model feature win.

Macri, of Dillsburg, earned $4,000 for his first win of the season
that came by an impressive 7.4-seconds in the non-stop main event for
the Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Cars.

“I was getting worried in lapped traffic,” Macri said. “They were
starting to not play as nice. The first five or six lapped cars just
fell my way. They went the other way and I was able to stay on the
top.”

Macri was Port Royal’s leading feature winner last year, but was
looking for a little more speed so far this season.

“The car hasn’t felt like it was last year in the first couple of
races,” Macri said. “We just kept working and working. I’d say
tonight’s the first night where I felt we were as good as we were last
year.”

Macri is primed for next week’s Keith Kauffman Classic paying $10K
sanctioned by the All Stars.

“It’s definitely a confidence boost going into next week,” Macri said.
“When we first got here, I seen the track wasn’t dug up as much as it
was the weeks before. I knew it would eventually come back to this,
but I didn’t think it would be that close to the wall. It played into
my favor. I like this kind of track. Anybody can go around here in 15
seconds. This is the Port Royal I like.”

“I have all the confidence in the world in Jim (Shuttlesworth) and my
guys. I just have to do my job. I’d say we can beat them.”

Gerard McIntyre Jr. started on the pole and grabbed the lead as Blane
Heimbach took second. Macri started sixth, but was up to third in no
time.

He shot by Heimbach in turns three and four, but Heimbach returned the
pass as they raced down the frontstretch. Macri worked the very top of
the speedway and passed Heimbach off turn two with 18 to go.

Macri caught the leader and shot under him entering turn three. He
slid up in front of him as they raced off turn four taking the lead
with 15 to go.

From there, Macri blasted away from the field increasing his lead even
as he raced up against the fence by slower traffic.

Heimbach looked inside of McIntyre for the runner-up spot, but
couldn’t make it work.

Three-time and defending track champion Logan Wagner had raced into
the top five from the 18th starting spot.

Marci led by 4-seconds with 10 laps to go.

It was Wagner making moves by Heimbach and then McIntyre for the
runner-up spot with five to go. Jeff Halligan and 14th starter Danny
Dietrich also raced into the top five late in the race.

But up front it was all Macri as he cruised to his eighth career Port
Royal win by 7.4 seconds over Wagner and 9-seconds over McIntyre.

“I knew we were pretty good early,” Wagner said. “The guys worked
really hard on this car. It was a disappointment in the heat race for
me personally. We bounced back in the A-main. I was picking cars off.
I didn’t know where I was or who I was racing or what I was going for.
After the checkered, I thought I might have won that, I don’t know.
Then I looked up and seen second. Hats off to those guys, I know they
work really hard. The car was really good, I just positioned myself
bad in the heat race.”

“We’re real happy,” McIntyre said. “We got beat by two of the best
cars at Port Royal, so there’s nothing to hang our heads about. Dennis
gave me a really good car, and sooner or later, I’ll figure out how to
drive it. At the beginning of the race, it really felt good. I have to
figure out what I need to do as a driver at the end of the race to
close them out. I don’t think we were going to beat the 39 and the 1
was fast, too, but I’d like to be able to race with them a little
more. That’s on me. We’ll get it figured out. We’ve had a lot of bad
luck. This is refreshing and hopefully more of these to come.”

Dietrich and Halligan completed the top five. Dylan Cisney, Heimbach,
A.J. Flick, Jason Shultz and Kerry Madsen rounded out the top 10.

Shultz earned the $1,000 J&S Fabrication Warrior Award. Wagner was the
Hard Charger. McIntyre earned $103 from the Port Royal Race Chasers.

Heats for the 36 Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Cars were won by Dylan
Cisney, Anthony Macri, Kerry Madsen and Jeff Halligan. TJ Stutts won
the B Main.

In the USAC East Coast 360 Sprint main event, Alex Bright led Carmen
Perigo Jr. and Colin White on the opening lap. Defending series
champion Steve Drevicki quickly raced into third after starting sixth.
Drevicki took the runner-up spot from Perigo with a pass off turn
four.

As Bright and Drevicki streaked away from the field, a great race for
third developed between five cars.

With 12 laps to go, the leaders were 8-seconds ahead of third place.
They raced in heavy lapped traffic as Drevicki tried to take the lead.
Meanwhile, the battle for third was between Briggs Danner and B-main
winner Kenny Miller Jr.

Miller Jr.’s great run came to an end with a second turn flip with
seven laps to go. He was okay.

Bright, of Collegeville, Pa., controlled the restart pulling away from
Drevicki as the race for third, fourth and fifth continued to be
close.

Colin White’s top five run came to an end as well with a fourth turn
flip with four to go. He was also okay.

The final laps saw Bright leading Drevicki with Joey Biasi challenging
Danner for third.

Bright’s second straight series win at Port Royal came by 4.2-seconds
over Drevicki

“When Drevicki showed his nose, that made me get on it a little bit
harder,” Bright said. “He showed his nose a couple times. I didn’t
completely leave him. I knew I had to stay on it. Right up against the
wall with these non-wing cars is fun. When you’re out in the lead like
that, you don’t know how hard you need to drive or I could have picked
it up and starting making mistakes. The car was underneath me. We were
along the same set-up tonight as last year. We tweaked a couple
things. This car was on rails. I can’t wait to come back here.”

“I felt like I was better than him and could run him down,” Drevicki
said. “It’s hard to pick that spot to be able to clear him with the
momentum we’re carrying around the top. I tried to make a hero out of
myself over here and bent the front axle back and I don’t know what
else. At that point, I had to settle in for second. It’s a good start
to the season and we’ll keep working hard to get that first win. I
felt like I had a good car, but it screwed up my entry when I did
that. I had to be really careful.”

Danner held off Biasi for third. Chris Allen Jr. completed the top
five. Perigo Jr., Damon Paul, Tommy Kunsman, Ed Aiken and Mike
Thompson rounded out the top 10.

Heats for the USAC East Coast 360 sprints were won by Briggs Danner,
Chris Allen Jr and Alex Bright. Kenny Miller III won the B Main.

Kenny Yoder and Donnie Farlling raced side-by-side for the lead on the
opening lap of the Selinsgrove Ford Limited Late Model feature.

A quick yellow with one lap completed slowed the pace.

Port Royal’s Devin Hart was already up to fourth. He took third on the
restart and nearly had second spot before another yellow flew.

Hart passed Farlling down the frontstretch for second following the
restart. He trailed Yoder for a few laps before switching lanes off
turn four making an inside pass for the lead with 13 laps to go.

He survived several restarts from there keeping Yoder behind him.
Defending track champion Andrew Yoder was into third and Todd Snook
moved into the top five during the final laps of the 20-lap main
event.

Hart’s fourth career Port Royal win, and second straight, came by 1.4-seconds.

“You’ve got to ride it while it’s up because it can go down real
quick, I found that out in 2019,” Hart said. “Last year, we struggled
some. I felt like we were good, we just weren’t where we needed to be.
That first race this year, we didn’t run as good as I thought we
would. We went back to our normal last week, and been really good
since, I want to keep it rolling as long as we can.”

K. Yoder, A. Yoder, Snook and Shaun Miller completed the top five.
Troy Miller, Derick Garman, Donnie Farlling, Shawn Shoemaker and Matt
Murphy rounded out the top 10.

Heats for the 32 Selinsgrove Ford Limited Late Models were won by
Donnie Farlling, Devin Hart, Kenny Yoder and Andrew Yoder. JR Toner
won the B Main.

Lance Dewease Continues March Toward History With Win Number 117; Mason Zeigler and Nick Sweigart Score Big As Well

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Penn. (April 4, 2021)- Lance Dewease celebrated Easter a day early by picking up his 117th career Weikert's Livestock 410 Sprint Car victory Saturday night at Port Royal Speedway after starting from the fourth starting position.

The win was Dewease's second of the season at the Juniata County oval and came over a hard charging Logan Wagner and Anthony Macri. Dewease's triumph was worth $4000 and moved him within 12 of all-time track winner Keith Kauffman on the all-time win list.

"I honestly didn't realize I had won that many races here, but it means the everything to me," said Dewease. "We're here to win races and we're not here to run 10th or fifth. We were kind of doing some R&D earlier this year and we're done with that, so we're back to working on our racecar and making it fast to win races."

Jeff Miller and Lynton Jeffrey led the field to the green-flag and it was Miller getting the early jump. However it was Macri on the move early as he used a great start to go from fifth to second on the opening circuit.

One lap later Dewease used the bottom in one and two to overtake Jeffrey for third and carried that momentum into turn three where he slid under Macri for second. It only took two more turn's for Dewease to track down Miller for the lead as he pulled alongside the young gun on the backstretch to take the top spot to lead lap three.

Macri got by Miller for second using the extreme top of the Speedway two laps later and set his sights on Dewease, while eighth-place starter Logan Wagner entered the podium one lap later. Chicora, Pa. native George Hobaugh followed suit into fourth as well.

With clean air in front of him, Dewease was cruising up front. But as he entered lapped traffic on lap eight, Macri and Wagner began closing in on the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame driver. Three laps later Macri had cut the distance in half and Wagner was lurking not far behind.

However the caution flew three laps later when Matt Farnham blew a tire on the Speedway and again gave Dewease open air in front of him. Dewease capitalized on the restart and again took off. Four laps later the final caution of the event flew when TJ Stutts blew a right-rear tire and set up a seven lap dash for the win.

"Anthony and Logan, those guys are pretty quick and they've been really good here all season," said Dewease. "But when the track get slick like this, I just feel really good out there and I felt pretty good about my chances with clean air."

Dewease was flawless on the restart and he again controlled the pace, but Wagner was all over Macri for second as he slid under him for the runner-up position exiting turn two. Macri used a run entering turn three to take the position back headed to the start-finish line and the two drivers swapped positions multiple times over the next two laps. Wagner was finally able to edge ahead to take the runner-up spot with four to go, but the battling allowed Dewease to be in cruise control out front.

All Wagner could do was hope for an Easter miracle, but it wasn't in the cards as Dewease crossed under the line by an advantage of 1.654 seconds to take the checkers. Behind Wagner and Macri, Hobaugh and Jeffrey rounded out the top five.

Mike Wagner, last week's winner Dylan Cisney, Ryan Smith, Jeff Halligan and Kerry Madsen finished out the top-ten. Halligan earned the Valley Supply $200 Hard Charger Award by advancing 13 positions after he was forced to qualify for the feature via the B-main after he broke a left front wheel earlier in the night during a heat race. Justin Whittal earned the $1000 J&S Fabrication Warrior Award presented by Jim & Sandy Kline after Dewease drew the number 17 in victory lane and Macri earned an addition $103 for his third-place finish courtesy of the Port Royal Race Chasers.

"We were pretty good here opening day and last week I put us in a bad position and bent a car up, so this is a new car and it's just been perfect since we rolled it out," said Dewease. "We got ourselves a new Rider engine in the car and it’s ran flawless and it's just been a great start to the year already winning two races and I can't wait for the All Stars here in a couple weeks."

410 Sprint Car Feature Results: 1. Lance Dewease; 2. Logan Wagner; 3. Anthony Macri; 4. George Hobaugh; 5. Lynton Jeffrey; 6. Mike Wagner; 7. Dylan Cisney; 8. Ryan Smith; 9. Jeff Halligan; 10. Kerry Madsen; 11. Jason Shultz; 12. AJ Flick; 13. Jeff Miller; 14. Blane Heimbach; 15. Jared Esh; 16. TJ Stutts; 17. Justin Whittall; 18. Rick Lafferty; 19. Pat Cannon; 20. Michael Bauer; 21. Drew Ritchey; 22. Curt Stroup; 23. Kody Lehman; 24. Matt Farnham.

River Valley Builders Super Late Models

Mason Zeigler scored his fourth career River Valley Builders Super Late Model triumph at the Port Royal Speedway during a caution free feature event over Colton Flinner and Ross Robinson. The win was worth $3000 for the Chalkhill, Pa. native.

"We didn't get a really good start and actually fell back to like fourth on that opening turn, but coming out of two we were in the lead so we have a pretty good piece here," said Zeigler. "We're still real tight and can’t really get around the middle and bottom like we need to, but luckily we were able to get around the top like we need to and here we are."

Austin Berry and Scott Flickinger led the field to the green-flag, but after a chaotic scramble it was Zeigler coming from the third starting spot to lead lap one. By lap five Zeigler held slightly over a two second advantage over fourth starter Mike Lupfer and he looked to be in control of the race.

Last year's track champion, Andy Haus, moved by Lupfer for the runner-up spot one lap later, while seventh start Flinner was on the move and slid into third on lap six. Two laps later Flinner got by Haus for second, but by lap ten Zeigler still held a 2.259 second advantage.

With Zeigler struggling in heavy lapped traffic, Flinner was able to close the gap quickly and with ten laps to go in the 25-lap A-main he ducked under Zeigler and briefly took the lead exiting turn two. However Zeigler used a head of steam down the backstretch to gain momentum in turn's three and four to re-take the lead at the line.

"My guys were signaling to me that I had a nice lead and out of nowhere I saw Colton there under me and he definitely made me pick up the pace there late," said Zeigler. "Luckily we still had a little bit left there in the tank and we were able to fight back and hold him off."

Over the final 10 circuits, Zeigler would again stretch his lead, but with a handful of laps remaining he was buried deep in two-wide lapped traffic. Flinner stayed patient on the bottom of the track and again tried to reel him in. He made several attempts in the middle of turn's one and two to pull even with Zeigler, but Zeigler was too good on the top and powered away.

When he crossed under the checkered flag, he held a .612 advantage. Behind Flinner and Robinson, Dylan Yoder and two-time 2021 winner Gregg Satterlee rounded out the top-five. Tyler Bare, Jeff Rine, Haus, Opening Day winner Trevor Feathers and Nick Dickson finished up the top-ten.

"I was just trying to conserve and keep my tires under me there for a while, but once I caught those lapped cars they were battling hard in front of me and I didn’t want to push the issue if I didn’t need to," said Zeigler. "I just had to just get up and defend around the top and hopefully lapped traffic would play into our favor once Colton showed us his nose.

Penns Valley Meat Market PA Sprint Series 305 Sprint Cars

Nick Sweigart powered forward from the fifth starting position to claim his fifth career Penns Valley Meat Market PA Sprint Series 305 Sprint Car victory at Port Royal Speedway Saturday night.

The win moved him into a five-driver tie for fourth all-time on the win list at the Speedway in the division with Logan Wagner, Mark Watkins, Mike Wagner II and Tyler Reeser.

"It was a lot of fun out there racing with those guys," said Sweigart. "It was hard racing, but it was good racing and we put it all together."

Austin Reed and last year's track champion Garrett Bard led the field to the green flag with Bard jumping out to the early lead. Third-place starter Dave Grube moved into second on the opening circuit and exiting turn two it appeared he was going to overtake Bard for the top-spot when two cars got together on the frontstretch and brought out the red-flag to negate the pass.

Bard set the pace on the restart and on lap five, Grube again pulled alongside of the leader and this time was able to pull ahead slightly at the line to lead the lap. However, it was short lived up top for Grube as Sweigart was in heavy pursuit on the top of the track and he got around Bard for second on lap seven and then cruised around Grube for the lead on lap eight.

Grube fought back on the inside to lead lap nine, but again Sweigart used momentum on the top side to exit turn four the following circuit to lead lap 10. One lap later the leaders hit lapped traffic and from there all Sweigart had to do was stay patient.

Grube tried his hardest, but the night belonged to Sweigart as he crossed under the checkered flag by an advantage of 3.679 seconds. After Grube and Bard, Justin Clark and Ken Duke rounded out the top-five. Devin Adams, Reed, Nick Tucker, Drew Young and Doug Dodson completed the top-ten.

"We had some issues earlier in the night with the fuel pump and we kind overcame that to get here," said Sweigart. "We've come so close these last few years to coming out and winning our first night out and I just said this is going to be the year and I'm thrilled."

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Saturday, April 10, 2021 (7PM) 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints and Outlaw Vintage

Saturday, April 24, 2021 (7:30PM) 410 Sprints, Central PA Legends, and Mid-Atlantic Modifieds (York County Racing Club Night)

Abbottstown, PA (April 3, 2021) – Going into Saturday night, Billy Dietrich’s last win at Lincoln came in 2016, so to say he was hungry for a win would have been an understatement. Billy jumped out to the lead at the start and as the laps wound down it looked like he would wire the field in a non-stop race, but debris on the track brought out a caution with 8 laps to go. Billy crossed the line ahead of his younger brother, Danny, with the fans on their feet to claim his third career win at the track.

The night started with time trials for the Gene Latta Ford 410 Sprint Cars with Robbie Kendall setting quick time putting down a lap of 13.409 seconds. The PA Speedweek format was followed, lining up the fastest car in each heat fourth. From each heat race, the winner and the fastest car that qualified made the redraw for the 30-lap feature.

Chad Trout picked the number one pill to start on the pole with Billy lined up to his outside. Danny and Troy Wagaman shared the second row for the feature start.

Trout and Billy raced side-by-side into turn 3 with Trout on the bottom. Billy took the lead coming out turn 4 using the high line. Wagaman was running third and set his sight on Trout.

Danny was running fourth and Chase Dietz worked his way into the top five after starting eighth.

Billy had a 3.113 second lead on lap 7 as he closed in on lapped traffic. Danny had reeled in Wagaman and was battling hard for third. Danny slid Wagaman in turns 3 and 4 to take the spot on lap 9.

Troy got him back coming out of turn 2 and Dietz was there to battle Dietrich for fourth. Dietz got by Danny on lap 13 to claim the fourth spot.

Dietz then got by Wagaman coming out of turn 2. Wagaman battled back but Dietz held the third spot at the line.

Danny got by Wagaman for fourth on lap 17 and made quick work of Dietz taking third on the next lap.

Danny was hunting down Trout for second when the yellow flag came out on lap 22 for debris on the track.

Billy paced the field slowly, ahead of Trout, Danny, Dietz and Wagaman for the restart.

All of the leaders went to the bottom in turn 1 except Danny, who got by Trout for second.

Danny tried a middle line in turns 1 and 2 on lap 26 to try and take the lead from his brother but could not make the pass. Danny was trying everything to get by Billy and tried a slider in turns 3 and 4 but still couldn’t get around Billy. As the laps wound down, Danny was making contact with the wall in turn 2, allowing Billy to pull away ever so slightly.

Billy got to the checkered flag 1.123 seconds ahead of Danny. Trout held on to finish third and Dietz crossed the line fourth. Wagaman completed the top five.

Heat race winners were Danny Dietrich, Tim Shaffer and Troy Wagaman. Chase Dietz was the hard charger, driving from his 10th starting spot to a fourth place finish.

Jeff Rohrbaugh Adds to 358 Win Record

Jeff Rohrbaugh added to his already impressive 358 sprint win total on Saturday night, making it 17 wins for the leader of the all-time win list.

Rookie-driver, Riley Emig sat on the pole for the 20-lap feature with defending champion Cody Fletcher lined up second.

From his fourth starting spot, Rohrbaugh got up to second with a strong start. Emig led the field with Rohrbaugh getting a nose under Emig in turn 3. Emig used the outside to hold the lead at the line. Fletcher and Jon Stewart battled for fourth and were side-by-side at the line with Fletcher having the slight advantage.

Emig used a higher line around the track to hold off the veteran driver, Rohrbaugh. Rohrbaugh took the lead from the rookie by a nose at the line on lap 4. Emig stayed within striking distance of Rohrbaugh with Brett Strickler running in third.

The caution flag waved on lap 6 for Cody Fletcher. Fletcher had fire shooting out from under his car the previous lap and dropped oil on the track. Fletcher remained running and held on to his fourth spot.

Rohrbaugh led Emig, Brett, Fletcher and Stewart to the cone for the restart.

Rohrbaugh used the bottom of turns 1 and 2 to pull away from the field. Brett held off Fletcher as he challenged for third. The yellow flag came out again on lap 9 when Emig spun in turn 2. Emig had been running second.

Brett, Fletcher, Stewart and Jordan Strickler lined up behind Rohrbaugh for the single-file restart.

Brett tried to get a run on Rohrbaugh in turns 3 and 4 to no avail. Rohrbaugh entered lapped traffic with five laps to go. Brett was closing in on the leader until lapped traffic took away the high line in turns 3 and 4 where Brett was getting a good run.

Rohrbaugh crossed the line 1.117 ahead of Brett for his 17th career Lincoln Speedway win. Fletcher finished third and Stewart crossed the line fourth. Jordan completed the top five.

358 sprint car heat races were won by Jon Stewart, Jordan Strickler and Jeff Rohrbaugh. Justin Foster was the hard charger advancing from his 20th starting spot to a 14th place finish.

Next Saturday, April 10, Lincoln Speedway is back in action with 410 Sprint Cars, 358 Sprint Cars and the Outlaw Vintage Series. Racing starts at 7PM with pit gates opening at 4:30PM and grandstand gates opening at 5PM.

Dueces Wild! Cisney and Rine Score Victories in Sprint Car and Super Late Model Competition; Devin Hart Wins Limited Late Model Feature

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Penn. (March 28, 2021)- Dylan Cisney has been knocking on the door of a win all season at Port Royal Speedway. After a third on Opening Day and a fourth last week, Cisney finally kicked down the down the door as he claimed the victory Saturday night over Jeff Halligan and Danny Dietrich.

The win was worth $4000 and was Cisney's fifth of his career at the Juniata County oval that sits only a few blocks from his home. Logan Wagner and Mike Wagner rounded out the rest of the top five.

"I wasn't sure how this thing was going to play out as it was really fast when we first got here," said Cisney. "The track was really in between during the heat races and luckily it slicked off. I don't know how good we were, but ultimately we were good enough to end up in victory lane and I just love this place so much."

Cisney, driving a number two sprinter owned by Scott Cowman instead of his family owned number five, lined up from the pole position alongside of Jeff Miller and got the early jump to lead lap one.

Seventh-place starter AJ Flick was on the move early as he moved into fifth on the first lap and two laps later he slid into fourth. Ninth-place starter Danny Dietrich also was on the move early as he entered the top-five on lap four.

After dropping back on the initial start, Anthony Macri got hooked up on the top of the speedway and he moved into fourth on lap eight. The following lap he cruised around Flick for third exiting turn two, but he lost a right wheel due to a mechanical issue and spun and collected Flick to bring out the red flag. Flick tipped over on his side as a result of the contact, but was ok. Neither driver would return.

Gerrard McIntyre Jr. slowed on the backstretch on the restart, which caused Blane Heimbach and Tyler Bear to spin in turn in turn two to bring out the second caution. All three drivers returned to action at the rear of the field.

Cisney again jumped out to a lead at the return to green-flag action, while Pat Cannon overtook Miller for the runner up spot down the backstretch. Cisney was pulling away from the field when a third caution flew on lap 11 when Miller made contact made contact with the outside guardrail in turn four and hit Kerry Madsen's right rear, causing the Australian to lose a tire as well. Madsen had moved from his 13th starting spot to the top-five before the incident and would rejoin the field.

Cisney again got a great jump on the restart and it was 11th-place starter Halligan making his move as he entered the top-five for the first time. Two laps later he moved past TJ Stutts for fourth and the following circuit he used the bottom of turn four to pass Dietrich for third. All momentum was halted the following lap when McIntyre slowed on the front stretch to bring out the final caution of the race.

Continuing to show his dominance, Cisney again took off on the restart, while Halligan cruised around Cannon to move into the runner-up position. Halligan was closing in on Cisney, but with five laps to go Cisney still held a nearly 1.5 second advantage. Dietrich and Halligan soon were battling it out for the second spot, allowing Cisney to stretch his lead over the remaining laps.

When the checkered flag flew, Cisney held a 1.5554 second advantage as he made it three different winners in three consecutive weeks to being the season at the Juniata County oval.

"This is really good, especially getting Scott Cowman a win here in Pennsylvania," said Cisney. "We can check that off the bucket list. Hopefully he keeps me as a driver and doesn't retire and say the heck with it because we got him a win too early."

For Halligan, he believes his team just needs to get more consistent to be sitting in victory lane,

"I'm pretty pleased somewhat, but I just feel like we could be a lot better," said Halligan. "We're hitting here, missing there, and just haven’t put a whole night together. We got lucky with a few crashes that put us in position and we took advantage of it."

Last weeks winner Justin Peck finished sixth, while Cannon, Madsen, Lucas Wolfe and Stutts rounded out the top ten. Logan Wagner earned a $500 hard charger bonus courtesy of Valley Supply Inc. and Mike Cleck paving by advancing 13 positions in the feature while Stutts earned the $1000 Warrior Award bonus courtesy of Jim and Sandy Kline and J&S Fabrication with the ransom draw number coming up 10.

Jeff Rine capitalized on a lap nine restart to take the lead and claim the $3000 to win River Valley Builders Super Late Model feature over Rick Eckert and Gary Stuhler. The win was Rine's 26th of his career at the Speedway.

"This is one of the first races that my dad missed and I know he's watching at home but it’s not the same without him here," said Rine. "We had some issues in warm ups, but we got it figured out and we beat one of the best late model drivers in Rick, so this is pretty cool."

Dave Brouse Jr. and Nick Dickson led the field to the green flag and it was Dickson getting the early jump. He was leading comfortably when Ross Robinson slowed on the backstretch to bring out the caution on lap eight.

One the restart, Rine, who started fourth, got underneath Dickson and he took the lead. Sixth=place starter Eckert edged ahead of Dickson for second at the line as well. However, the field was bunched up after a six-car pile up exiting turn two brought out the caution.

With Rine running the middle of the track and Eckert running the top, Eckert was slowly closing in on the leader. He tried the bottom of the speedway in turn's one and two to pull alongside of Rine, but Rine pulled away down the backstrech.

With five to go, Rine entered lap traffic and Eckert was again trying to mount a comeback. With two laps remaining, Eckert was all over the leader. However Rine remained steady and held off the veteran by an advantage of .438 seconds for the victory. Behind Eckert and Stuhler, who started 10th, Dylan Yoder and Trevor Feathers rounded out the top-five.

"If Rick had gotten to the lead first I don’t know if I'd have passed him honestly," said Rine. "This surface is just phenomenal and we were able to kind of search around and I'm just glad to be able to hold him off and get the win."

Max Blair finish in sixth and he also earned the $300 hard charger award courtesy of George's Used Cars Inc. Colton Flinner, Jason Covert, Robinson and Dickson rounded out the top-ten.

Justin Clark was running third and using the highline around the track when he got a little too high in turns 1 and 2 bringing out the red flag on lap 4.

McGee led Hanson. Dave Grube, Daren Bolac and Domenic Melair to the cone for the single-file restart.

Peck And Blair Wire For Williams Grove Wins As Both Drivers Net Career Firsts At Track

3/26/21

Mechanicsburg – Justin Peck of Mooresville, Indiana, wired the field for the 410 sprint car victory at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, taking a $5,500 score for his first ever oval victory.

At the wheel of the Buch No. 13, Peck withstood three restarts with TJ Stutts on his tail to pick up the victory.

In the 30-lap ULMS Super Late Model main, Max Blair of Centerville took the win, likewise to record his first ever oval checkers as well.

Peck drew the number two pill to start the 25-lap sprint car main and jetted out to the lead when action began, already entering the rear of the field with just five laps in the book.

The pace was lightning-quick on the early season surface and Peck had a three-second lead over Stutts when Tyler Courtney spun in the second corner one lap shy of the halfway point.

Another caution flag bunched the field a lap later, this time for a stopped Robbie Kendall on the frontstretch.

Peck then hit traffic again with three laps to go but had the field covered and he was racing onto the frontstretch for the checkers when instead he saw the yellow flag flash over the field, setting up a one-lap dash to the finish.

Peck drove easily to the win by 1.337 seconds over Stutts while 14th starter Tim Shaffer tried for third on the final restart.

Shaffer tried to bolt outside of Chase Dietz in the first corner when green replaced the yellow but despite a blistering effort, he failed to gain the spot.

Steve Buckwalter finished fifth after riding inside the top five during the entire event.

Sixth through 10th went to Freddie Rahmer, Kyle Reinhardt, Ryan Taylor, Danny Dietrich and Kerry Madsen.

Heats went to Peck, Stutts and Anthony Macri with the consolation going to Lucas Wolfe.

“My guys had this 13 rolling,” said Peck.

We seem to hit it pretty well lately. Every time we hit the track, it’s fast and moving forward.”

“It feels good to be standing on the frontstretch here,” Peck said.

In the 30-lap main event for ULMS late models, it was Blair who grabbed the lead over Andy Haus and Coleby Frye.

The first yellow flag flew with 14 laps completed, erasing Blair’s 1.284-second lead.

Blair controlled the restart as Frye challenged Haus for second with Kyle Lee not far behind.

The yellow flew again with 12 laps to go.

Jason Covert then grabbed fourth on the restart from Lee as Blair pulled away.

Frye finally grabbed second from Haus with 2 laps to go before Covert also passed Haus.

Blair’s $3,000 win came by 1.769 over Frye, Covert, Haus and Dylan Yoder. Lee, Shaun Jones, Gene Knaub, Justin Weaver and Ryan Scott rounded out the top 10.

Bryan Bernheisel set quick time over the 22-car field with a lap of 20.105 seconds however at the start of the first heat race he barrel rolled his No. 119 through the first corner and out over the guardrail, to exit the speedway.

Mike Lupfer, Blair and Dylan Yoder won the heat races.

In late model action in 2020, Jeff Rine picked up a trio of checkered flags with single wins going to Brett Schadel, Andy Haus, Gregg Satterlee and Rick Eckert.

Throughout history, no driver has ever taken more full-blown opening day sprint car wins at Selinsgrove Speedway than the late Ray Tilley of Pine Grove.

Tilley’s run of four in a row spanned both the sprint car precursor “super modified” era as well as that of the evolved sprints, from 1965 – 1968.

April will offer a pair of big 75th anniversary season shows at Selinsgrove Speedway.

The Track hosts the April Attack for ULMS super late models on Saturday, April 10 and the return of the 410 sprints for the Ray Tilley Classic on Sunday, April 25.

April 10 will also showcase the season debut of the Apache Tree Service 305 sprints and the A & A Auto Stores roadrunner division with racing slated for 6 pm.

The super late models will fill out the special 6 pm Sunday card along with the Tilley Classic on April 25.

Abbottstown, PA

FLETCHER SCORES FIRST CAREER LINCOLN 358 SPRINT TITLE

Abbottstown, PA (Saturday, March 20, 2021) – The 2021 358 Sprint Car season started on a beautiful Saturday afternoon in the pigeon hills. Prior to the features the 2020 358 Sprint Car Champion and Special Award Honorees were honored in front of the crowd in place of the usual banquet.

Cody Fletcher earned his first track championship in 2020 in a battle that went down to the wire. Four drivers were eligible to claim the track title going into the final race of the season, Fletcher, Todd Rittenhouse Jr., Brett Wanner and Steve Owings. Fletcher’s 8th place finish in the final race of the season secured him his first championship.

The 358 sprints got off to a late start in 2020 due to the shutdown. When the 358s first hit the track on May 30, Fletcher finished 11th, just outside of the top-10. Cody followed up with back-to-back fifth place runs in June.

On July 4th Cody finished 12th. He rebounded on July 11th with a fifth place finish. August started with a rainout. The first race of the month Fletcher earned a top 10. The night of the make-up feature, Fletcher finished fourth in the regularly scheduled program but had a DNF in the make-up event.

Fletcher had another DNF to start off the month of September but finished out the season with two top-10s. Cody’s third place finish in the final race of the season was enough for him to claim the track championship.

Without the shutdown due to the pandemic, the season might have ended with a different champion. Todd Ritthenhouse Jr. started off the season with back-to-back wins, but the first two races after the shutdown were not points races for the division. Rittenhouse ended up second in the point standings for the season with 7 top-10s and 4 top-5s.

Brett Wanner also scored two wins during the 2020 season on his way to a third place finish in the point standings. Wanner also claimed the Summer Series title. Wanner finished the season with 7 top-10s and 5 top-5s.

Rounding out the top five in points were Scott Fisher who scored a win and 5 top-10s and 2 top-5s and Steve Owings (7 top-10s/5 top-5s).

Completing the top 10 in points were Brett Strickler with 1 win and 3 top-5 and 3 top-10 finishes; Chris Frank 7 top-10s; Jordan Strickler 1 top-5/2 top-10; Chris Arnold had 1 win and 3 top-5 and 5 top-10 finishes and Justin Foster 1 top-5/3 top-10.

There were 11 races run by the 358 sprints in 2020 with 8 different winners including one first-time winner, Brett Strickler.

Justin Foster earned Rookie of the Year honors in the 358 sprint division. Foster placed in the top-10 three times in his rookie campaign in 2020, including one top-5.

The Most Improved Driver in 358 sprint competition during 2020 was awarded to Brett Wanner.

 Justin Peck Earns First Career Port Royal Sprint Car Victory; Satterlee and Parks Score Big in Late Model Competition

 

 By- Justin Snyder

 

 Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Penn. (March 21, 2021)- Justin Peck capitalized on a front row starting spot to lead all 25 laps and picked up his first career Weikert's Livestock 410 Sprint Car victory over a hard charging Anthony Macri Saturday at Port Royal Speedway.

 

 The Indiana native will be a regular on the FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions tour this season behind the wheel of the Tom Buch No. 13. Originally the team planned to follow the World of Outlaws tour to start the season, but looking to capitalize on an opportunity to gain more laps in the Central Pennsylvania area, Peck is making the best of the opportunity.

 

 "There's no denying the 13 car has speed right now," said Peck, "We came here last week and had nowhere near the car we had tonight. I didn’t win a race all last year, so it's nice to have one checked off in March this year."

 

 Dylan Cisney and Peck lined up on the front row and it was Cisney getting the early jump. However, last week's winner Lance Dewease and Pat Cannon got together on the backstretch to bring out the caution before a lap could be completed. Cannon would rejoin the field.

 

 On the restart, Peck got the run exiting turn two and pulled even with Cisney on the backstretch. With a head of steam entering turn three, Peck exited the turn with the lead to lead lap one. By lap five, Peck had already caught the tail end of the field and began to maneuver through lap traffic.

 

 Three laps later the top four cars were all under a blanket on the backstretch in heavy lap traffic, but the caution would fly when Tyler Reeser and Jason Schultz got together in turn two. The halt in action gave Peck the clean air he needed to feel good in his car.

 

 "I might have been looking at on lap car rather than trying to look forward and pick and choose my lines where I needed to be," said Peck. "I couldn't get off the top in one and two, but I saw Anthony sticking his nose under me there and I knew I had to stay up top and bang the board to hold on."

 

 Peck raced out at the return to green flag action, while last year's leading feature winner at the Speedway, Macri, made his move for second on the inside of turn's three and four the following circuit. Defending track champion Logan Wagner followed suit and slid into the third position on lap 10.

 

 Four laps later Peck again closed in on the tail end of the field and Macri was all over him for the lead. He tried the bottom of the speedway on multiple occasions, but Peck was too strong off the top of the Speedway.

 

 With Wagner lurking behind them both, Macri continued to gain ground on the backstretch and was throwing everything he had at Peck in heavy lapped traffic. Macri was better in turn's one and two, but Peck had the momentum in three and four.

 

 With five to go, Macri had his best opportunity as Peck was struggling to pick his line to pass the lappers. He dove to the bottom of him entering turn three, but Peck was able to position a lapped car between himself and Macri heading to the flag stand.

 

 Macri would make one last dive-bomb effort on the final circuit entering turn three, but ultimately Peck was too strong and cruised home to his first career Port Royal triumph by a total of 1.316 seconds over Macri, Wagner, Cisney and Mike Wagner.

 

 The win was worth $4000 and was Peck's first since stepping behind the wheel of the Tom Buch machine.

 

 "This is pretty cool as I grew up watching the Pennsylvania Posse and these guys are always tough no matter what night it is," said Peck. "Tom Buch and all the guys that work on this car have me an awesome piece. It’s so much fun to be able to come out here and compete like we have been and we'll keep plugging forward and see if we can’t get ourselves a couple more this year."

 

 For Macri, it was a struggle in turn's three and four and he believed that was the difference between first and second.

 

 "I knew they would be hard to beat off the front row as those guys have been really impressive since they got together," said Macri. "We'd get a good run on Justin down the backstretch, but couldn’t capitalize in three and four. They had the best car tonight and we'll keep working at it for next week."

 

 Blane Heimbach, Ryan Taylor, George Hobaugh, Jeff Halliagn and Mike Walter II rounded out the top ten. Hobaugh earned the $500 hard charger award courtesy of Valley Supply and Mike Cleck Paving by advancing a total of 13 positions. Tyler Reeser earned the $1000 Warrior Award courtesy of Jim and Sandy Kline and J & S Fabrication after a random draw selected the 22nd position. Logan Wagner also earned an additional $103 courtesy of the Port Royal Race Chasers for finishing in third.

Tyler Reeser ($1400), 23. Pat Cannon ($400), 24. Lance Dewease ($400)

 

 ULMS Super Late Models

 

 Gregg Satterlee picked right up where he left off last season by picking up the $3000 win during the Zimmer's Service Center ULMS Racing Series feature event. The win moved Satterlee into a tie for 26th all-time at Port Royal Speedway and was his tenth career triumph at the Juniata County oval.

 

 Satterlee bested Michael Norris, Max Blair, Rick Eckert and Tyler Bare by 3.526 seconds to earn the victory.

 

 "I just love coming to this place so much and it doesn't matter how many divisions are here the track is just perfect," said Satterlee. "It's easy to be happy when you're in victory lane and our car was just so good tonight."

 

 Norris and Satterlee led the field to the green flag and it was Norris getting the early jump. Third starter Blair moved into second initially while Satterlee settled into third.

 

 Norris opened up an early lead and he hit happed traffic on lap eight. One lap later Satterlee slid under Blair for the runner up spot and he set his sights on the leader. Three laps later Satterlee was all over Norris and he tried unsuccessfully to take the lead for two laps.

 

 Finally on lap 14 Satterlee used a head of steam entering turn three to slide up in front of Norris to lead heading to the flag stand.

 

 The caution flew the following lap for a slowing Mason Zeigler, but with clean air ahead of him Satterlee cruised ahead at the return to green flag action.

 

 Norris and Blair battled side by side for most of the remaining laps, but neither had anything for Satterlee as he checked out to score the victory.

 

 Dylan Yoder, Ross Robinson, Jared Miley, Colton Flinner and Gary Stuhler made up the rest of the top ten.

 

 "It just seems this track really suits our program here lately and we've been good just about everytime out," said Satterlee. "With how much they're paying and the fields and track conditions, it’s safe to say we'll be visiting Port Royal a time or two this season."

 

 For Norris, he knew that once Satterlee got by him it was going to be tough to track him back down.

 

 "I knew we needed to get out front early and go if we wanted a chance," said Norris. "Gregg is so good here and once I saw him get by I think we were pretty much racing for second. It was a lot of fun out there and I hope the fans enjoyed it."

 

 Kyle Knapp earned the hard charger award worth $200 courtesy of Georges Used Cars Inc. by advancing nine positions from 27th to 18th.

 Limited Late Models

 

 Matt Parks led all 20 laps to score his first career Selinsgrove Ford Limited Late Model feature event at the Port Royal Speedway. Andrew Yoder, Dillan Stake, Logan Robinson and Donnie Farling rounded out the top five.

 

 The win was worth $1300, which was a $100 increase on the regular purse thanks to a fan, Zachary Knepp.

 

 Parks outlasted a seven car pileup on lap four and late charge from Yoder and Stake to score the victory. Yoder started 12th on the grid while Stake started 13th.

 

 A caution with four laps to go bunched up the field and Yoder and Stake both moved into their respective positions with two laps remaining, Yoder was closing the distance but simply ran out of laps as Parks won by a .694 second advantage.

 

 "You know this car is two years old and we've just kind of been trying to get by and working hard for a few years now," said Parks. "I was beginning to wonder if maybe I should give it up, but to be sitting here tells me I still have something to give and we'll keep trying our hardest."

 

 Devin Hart, Derick Garman, Shawn Shoemaker, Mike Smith and Taylor Farling rounded out the top ten.

Abbottstown, PA (March 20, 2021) – Alan Krimes lined up sixth for the start of the 30-lap feature on Saturday afternoon. Krimes rolled around the bottom of the track to work his way to the front of the field. With five laps to go, Krimes got by defending track champion, Freddie Rahmer, for the lead and never looked back, claiming the $4,000 prize and his 22nd career win at the track.

Dylan Norris and Freddie Rahmer shared the front row for the start of the feature. Norris got in front of Rahmer on the start and led the field coming out of turn 2. Rahmer tried to slide in front of Norris in turns 3 and 4, but Norris held the lead at the line.

Freddie got by Norris coming out of turn 2 to take the lead.

Brandon Rahmer was running the bottom line trying to get a run on Dietz who was running third.

Freddie had a three-second lead as he approached lapped traffic on lap 6. The first yellow flag of the race came on lap 7 when Bradley Howard stopped on the front stretch.

Freddie led Norris, Dietz, Brandon and Krimes to the cone for the single-file restart. Dietz got under Norris to move into second and Krimes got by Brandon for fourth, but the yellow came out before the lap was completed, negating both passes. Aaron Bollinger and Ricky Dieva got together in turns 1 and 2 and brought out the caution.

On the restart Dietz got to the outside of Norris in turns 1 and 2 but couldn’t make the pass for second. Dietz stuck with Norris though and took the runner-up spot in turns 3 and 4.

Krimes was battling Brandon for fourth and took the spot at the line on lap 9. Krimes then went to work on Norris and made the pass for third on the next lap.

Further back in the field Tim Shaffer and Danny Dietrich were raging a fierce battle for seventh and Billy Dietrich and Brandon were racing for fifth.

As the leaders were catching the tail-end of the field the caution came out on lap 14 for Jordan Givler. Givler came to a stop on the front stretch with a flat right rear tire. Givler went to the work area and his team changed the tire for him to rejoin the field.

Dietz, Krimes, Norris and Brandon lined up behind Freddie for the restart. Krimes was using the bottom of the track to close in on Dietz and got by him for the second spot on lap 17.

Lap 17 also saw Danny Dietrich make his way into the top five after lining up 12th for the start of the race.

Freddie was back in lapped traffic with 10 laps to go and his advantage over Krimes was down to less than one second.

Krimes caught Freddie with 8 laps to go with Krimes rolling around the bottom and Freddie opting for the high line around the track.

Krimes was getting a good run out of turn 4 and dove under Rahmer going into turn 3 on lap 24. Krimes beat Rahmer back to the line to take the lead with the crowd on their feet and five laps to go.

Freddie tried to get the lead back in turns 1 and 2 to no avail. Krimes’ win was his 22nd at the track. Dietz got by Freddie for second on the last lap. Danny Dietrich finished fourth and Brandon completed the top five. Krimes was the fourth different winner in as many weeks at Lincoln this year.

Heat race winners were Freddie Rahmer, Tyler Ross and Dylan Norris. For the second week in a row Danny Dietrich was the hard charger driving from his 12th starting spot to a 4th place finish.

Cody Fletcher Defends Track Title with Season Opener Win

Defending track champion, Cody Fletcher, received his 2020 championship trophy and recognition in front of the crowd Saturday afternoon before strapping in for the 20-lap feature. Fletcher found himself back in victory lane for his second career win at the track later in the afternoon.

Zachary Allman and Dylan Orwig shared the front row for the first 358 sprint car race of the season. Orwig spun out on the first lap in turn 1 and landed on his side bringing out the red flag. Steve Owings hit the wall getting by Orwig and ended up with a flat tire. Owings was able to change the tire and rejoin. Orwig also rejoined the field after getting upright.

The field lined up for a complete restart with Allman and Mason Chaney on the front row. Owings had more trouble in turn 1 on the restart bringing out the yellow flag when he got turned around.

The third time was the charm for the start of the first 358 sprint car feature of the 2021 season. Chaney had the lead coming out of turn 2 and led lap 1 with Allman in second and Zane Rudisill and Fletcher battling for third.

Rudisill and Fletcher caught Allman making it a three-car battle for second. Rudisill took the runner-up spot on lap 3. The yellow flag waved again on lap 4 for a six car pile-up in turns 1 and 2. The cars involved, Chad Criswell, Orwig, Ashley Cappetta, Zachary Cool, Owings and David Holbrook, nearly blocked the track.

Chaney paced the field for the restart ahead of Rudisill, Fletcher, Allman and Riley Emig.

Rudisill looked to the outside of Chaney on the restart but the red flag came out for Emig in turn 1. Emig was making his debut in the 358 sprint division on Saturday and had lined up 12th for the feature. Emig had raced his way up to fifth before his misfortune.

Rudisill tried the outside again on the restart but could not get by Chaney. The top three, Chaney, Rudisill and Fletcher, were pulling way from the rest of the field. Rudisill was trying everything to get by Chaney which allowed Fletcher to close in. Fletcher got by Rudisill for second on lap 12 right before the caution came out for Orwig in turn 4.

Chaney led Fletcher, Rudisill, Allman and Brett Wanner on the restart. Wanner had made his way into the top five from his 16th starting spot.

Fletcher looked to the outside of Chaney and made the pass for the lead coming out of turn 2. Wanner was working on Allman for the fourth spot.

Fletcher was pulling away and had a nearly two-second lead with five laps to go. Allman was still holding off Allman but with two laps to go Wanner made the pass for fourth in turns 1 and 2. Wanner wasn’t done though as he passed Rudisill for third in turns 3 and 4, advancing two spots in one lap.

Fletcher got to the checkered flag 2.248 seconds ahead of Chaney. Wanner earned the hard charger award with his third place finish, having advanced 13 spots in the feature. Rudisill held on for a fourth place finish and Allman completed the top five.

358 sprint car heat races were won by Dylan Orwig, Cody Fletcher and Kody Hartlaub.

Rahmer pocketed $5,500 for his opening day payday. It was his first-ever victory in a Williams Grove lidlifter.

His father, Fred Rahmer, scored six times in the prestigious event during his storied career.

Harsh winds blew Rahmer to his victory after starting out on the pole alongside his brother Brandon.

The first caution flag of the race appeared with three laps down when Kerry Madsen spun in the second turn marbles.

Third starter Justin Peck nudged under Brandon Rahmer for second in the third turn on the 16th tour but until then the front three had run in line.

Sixth starter Lance Dewease moved into fourth on the lap three restart and had followed the front trio.

Dewease got by Brandon Rahmer for third in the first and second turns with seven laps to go.

Rahmer ran up on traffic with 10 laps to go but preferred to keep the backmarkers at arm’s length rather than to begin working the pack on the tricky surface.

A yellow flag with two laps to go cleared the way for Rahmer after Alan Krimes limped to a stop with a flat tire.

Rahmer then had the checkers in sight a few minutes later only to again see a yellow flag slow his pace before he could get to the finish line.

The one-lap sprint to the finish produced no changes as Rahmer took the win by .37 seconds over Peck.

Dewease was third followed by Brandon Rahmer and 10th starter Dylan Cisney.

“The wind was the whole thing today,” Rahmer said.

”At one end it puts you down and on one end it puts you out.”

Rahmer said he was happy to stay out of traffic.

“I wasn’t gonna’ push the issue,” he said.

Sixth through 10th went to Rick Lafferty, Hunter Schurenberg, Chad Trout, Brent Shearer and Danny Dietrich.

Heats went to TJ Stutts, Dewease, Trout and Peck with Alan Krimes taking the consolation race.

Lance Dewease Earns Fourth Career Opening Day Triumph, Feathers Earns Second Consecutive Opening Day Late Model Win

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway, PORT ROYAL, Penn. (March 14, 20210- Lance Dewease entered the 2021 racing season 14 wins behind Keith Kauffman for the all-time winningest driver in the history of the Port Royal Speedway.

With only 12 races at the historic Juniata County oval currently on Dewease and his Don Kreitz Jr. racing team's schedule, the likelihood that Dewease catches 'The Man from Mifflintown' this season was highly unlikely.

However, after Saturday night's performance during the 79th annual Opening Day presented by Packer's Concessions Dewease's imagination may be starting wonder just a bit. Dewease capitalized on a pole position starting spot to claim his fourth career Opening Day triumph over Kerry Madsen, Dylan Cisney, Jeff Halligan and Logan Wagner.

The win was worth $5000 and was a reminder that even with a limited schedule, Dewease is a threat every time his team pulls into the pits.

"The car was really good all night and the team did a great job," said Dewease. "My son made up for his poor draw earlier in the night to get us the pole position for the feature. It's a whole team effort and I'm just fortunate enough to drive the car."

Dewease and FloRacing All Stars Circuit of Champions contender Hunter Schuerenberg lined up on the front row for the 25-lap A-main and it was Dewease getting the early jump before the start was called off due to some shuffling mid-pack. However, on the restart it was fourth starting Madsen using the highline to go to the front and he led lap one over Dewease.

Dewease started reeling in Madsen and was all over the Austalian invader for the lead when Kody Lehman got turned around in turn two and collected Jared Esh to bring out the red flag. Both drivers were ok.

Both Madsen and Dewease hugged the bottom of the speedway on the restart, but Dewease was able to take his car even lower exiting turn four. The two cars battled side by side on lap 8 and Dewease was able to use a slide job entering turn one to muscle ahead to lead lap nine.

"You know Kerry kind of surprised me early as I knew he wasn't starting beside me and he must've gotten one heck of a start," said Dewease. "I was really chasing him there and that restart was my chance. I got a couple good runs at him and was able to make the bottom stick and we just kind of took off."

Dewease stretched his lead to nearly a full straightaway with 12 laps remaining, while the battle behind him was getting intense. Mike Wagner, Logan Wagner and Anthony Macri all swapped the sixth position multiple times and the battle came to a close with 11 to go when the younger Wagner made incidental contact with his dad and sent him spinning on the front stretch to bring out the caution.

Cisney entered the picture with nine to go as he moved past Schuerenberg for a podium spot and he set his sights on Madsen. Meanwhile, Dewease was checking out. With clean air in front of him and heavy battling throughout the pack, Dewease stretched his lead to nearly five seconds as he took the checkered flag by 4.858 seconds for his 116th career Port Royal triumph.

"We came out here and practiced last night and the guys worked really hard to get us where we needed to be as we rolled off the truck and just didn’t feel very good," said Dewease. "Donny, Davey and the whole team just gave me a great car and I just had to be smart and make my moves and here we are."

For Madsen, in only his second start behind the wheel of the Mike Barshinger Racing No. 24, he was thrilled to be in contention so early in the season and believes it was Dewease's experience that played a factor.

"We have not been working together for too long but this Barshinger car is really fast and this gives us something to build on going forward," said Madsen. "I felt really good in turn's one and two, but I just never quite could figure out three and four. I must've tried every line out there and ultimately Lance just was better than us."

Anthony Macri picked up the $200 Hard Charger Award courtesy of Valley Supply Inc. by advancing eight positions to finish sixth, while Blane Heimbach, Schuerenberg, Lynton Jeffrey and Justin Peck rounded out the top ten. Lucas Wolfe scored an extra $1000 courtesy of J&S Fabrication by finishing 19th as a result of the random draw Warrior Award. Cisney also earned an additional $104 courtesy of the Port Royal Race Chasers.

Trevor Feathers backed up his 2020 Opening Day triumph by picking up his second consecutive victory on Opening Day by holding off a hard charging Tyler Bare and Ross Robinson. The win was Feathers second of his career at the speedway and was worth a whopping $3000.

"This place is premier around our area and there's not really anything else like this place where you can have these kind of fields on a colder opening day," said Feathers. "I was really good out in clean air and I just had to stay up top and really hit my marks. It's great to start the season off with a win."

Colton Flinner and Dan Stone rounded out the rest of the top-five.

Jason Miller and Feathers led the River Valley Builders Super Late Model field to the green flag with Feathers getting the early jump on the high side of the speedway. Fourth starter Bare established himself in the runner up position at the completion of lap one followed by Kanub and sixth starter Rick Eckert.

Feathers was setting a fast pace, but it was Eckert on the move. He moved into a podium spot on lap five and got by Bare for second on lap 10. As Feathers was struggling with lap traffic, it appeared Eckert was going to challenge for the lead, but he slowed off the pace with driveline issues the following lap and pulled off the speedway.

"I knew the top was the place to be if I wanted to be fast and I was kind of committed to staying up there," said Feathers. "I don’t know what happened to Rick but I knew he was coming and I just tried to stay focused on the task at hand and keep driving hard as I could."

Feathers stretched his lead in lap traffic the next five laps, but his tired were starring to go away and that allowed Bare to cut the distance in half. With five to go, Bare was within striking distance. With three laps to go, Bare had cut the distance to less than three car lengths.

Bare was using a unique 'Diamond" line in turn three and four to try and get a run down the backstretch, but Feathers was able to position himself and the lap cars in the perfect position to hold off the challenge.

The Virginia native crossed under the checkers by a margin of .282 seconds to claim the victory. After starting off last season with high expectations, Feathers struggled the rest of the year. He's hoping this year will be full of consistency.

"You know after we won last year it seemed we were constantly chasing the car and we just really struggled," said Feathers. "We were able to come out here and start off 2021 with a win again and I'm we can sustain this success and be in contention for a title at the end of the year."

For Bare, he felt like he missed an opportunity earlier in the race to be closer at the end and needed more laps to track down Feathers.

"I messed up going into turn one earlier in the race in lap traffic and I let Eckert get by me and I really knew I messed up," said Bare. "He dropped out and were able to get ourselves going again. I actually thought we had a few more laps and when I saw the white flag come out I knew we were just going to be a second place car. This is a great start to our year and I'm looking forward to the rest of the year."

Gregg Satterlee, Knaub, Jim Bernheisel, Gary Stuhler and Trent Brenneman rounded out the top ten. Dylan Yoder finished 11th and earned the $200 hard charger courtesy of George's Used Cars Inc.

Saturday, April 13, 2021 (7PM) 410 Sprints + 358 Sprints

Abbottstown, PA (March 13, 2021) – After surviving early race cautions, Danny Dietrich started his charge to the front of the field from 11th. Dietrich worked his way into the top five and was running third when the leader, Chase Dietz, had a mechanical issue ending his afternoon. Danny squeezed by Chad Trout for the lead with five laps to go and earned his 55th career win at Lincoln.

Freddie Rahmer started on the pole of the 30-lap feature and shared the front row with Bradley Howard. Rahmer led the field into turn 1 but the caution came out for Kyle Moody who got turned around in the first turn. Moody had lined up third for the start of the feature.

The field lined up for a complete restart with Rahmer and Howard getting together at the end of the front stretch. Rahmer took a wild ride bringing out the red flag. The melee at the front of the field caused a 10-car pile-up including Tim Wagaman, Brandon Rahmer, Scott Fisher, Steve Buckwalter, Rickey Peterson, Jordan Givler, Aaron Bollinger, Dylan Norris, Greg Plank and Troy Wagaman. In addition to Freddie and Howard not being able to rejoin the field, Brandon was also done for the afternoon.

Chase Dietz inherited the lead and led the field alongside Chad Trout for another complete restart. Dietz led the field into turn 1 with Billy Dietrich and Matt Campbell battling for third behind him. Billy took the spot at the line.

Jim Siegel was tracking down Campbell for fourth and took the spot at the line on lap 3.

Dietz entered lapped traffic on lap 5 with a 4.6 second lead over Trout.

Trout had Dietz’s lead down to 1.6 seconds by lap 10 as they worked through lapped traffic.

Danny was reeling in Campbell to work his way into the top 5 and took the spot on lap 11.

Billy had caught Trout and wanted second. Billy got a good look under Trout in turn 3 but a lapped car kept him from making the pass.

A three-car battle for third was on between Billy, Siegel and Dietrich. The Dietrich brothers split Siegel with Danny taking third, Billy falling to fourth and Siegel in fifth.

Campbell got by Siegel for fifth and then took fourth from Billy on lap 17.

The yellow flag flew on lap 18 for Greg Plank in turn 2. Plank collected Alan Krimes and Glenndon Forsythe.

Dietz led Trout, Danny, Campbell and Siegel on the restart. Dietz hung onto the lead and pulled away from the field while Campbell tried the inside of Danny and took third. Danny took the spot back with a slider in turn 4 before the caution came out on lap 20 for the leader, Dietz. Dietz appeared to have a mechanical failure when he hit the wall in turn 4.

Trout inherited the lead with Danny, Campbell, Siegel and Tim Shaffer lined up behind him for the restart. Campbell was the only driver to opt for the top in turns 1 and 2 on the restart. Siegel got a nose under Campbell, but he kept the spot.

Danny was all over Trout's back bumper on lap 22 and tried a slider for the lead in turns 3 and 4 to no avail.

Campbell was still using the top in turns 1 and 2 to reel in the leaders while Danny was using the top of turns 3 and 4 to hunt down Trout.

Danny squeezed by Trout coming out of turn 4 to take the lead with 5 laps to go. Now in second Trout was holding off Campbell. Campbell looked to the inside of Trout after getting a solid run out of turn 4 but couldn’t make the pass.

Danny got to the checkered flag 2.898 seconds ahead of Trout to take home $4,000. Campbell held on to third and Siegel finished fourth. Last week’s winner, Tim Shaffer, completed the top five.

Heat race winners were Tim Shaffer, Bradley Howard and Billy Dietrich. In addition to winning the feature Danny Dietrich was also the hard charger driving from his 15th starting spot to a 1st place finish.

Next Saturday, March 20, Lincoln Speedway is back in action with 410 Sprint Cars and 358 Sprint Cars. Racing starts at 6PM with pit gates opening at 3:30PM and grandstand gates opening at 4PM.

Port Royal Speedway Set to Try Again for 79th Annual Port Royal Speedway Opening Day on Saturday

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Penn. (March 1, 2021)- Racing is set to return to the Port Royal Speedway this Saturday, March 13th, as the Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Cars and the River Valley Builders Super Late Models take to the track for the 79th Annual Port Royal Speedway Opening Day presented by Packer's Concessions, LLC.

Originally scheduled to kick off the 2021 racing season last weekend, speedway officials and the track promotion team decided that with cold weather and high winds in the forecast that it would be in the best interest of all parties involved to delay the opener until this weekend in hopes of better weather conditions.

The 410 Sprint Cars will again be vying for a $5000 winner’s share, while the Super Late Models will duke it out for a $3000 prize to the victor.

All gates open at 1 P.M while racing is set to kick off at 4 P.M. Adult admission is $20, while students are $10. Pit admission is $30.

Last year, All Star Circuit of Champions invader Cory Eliason bested 45 other competitors to score his first career opening day triumph. Brent Marks, Logan Wagner, Lance Dewease and Anthony Macri rounded out the top-five.

Wagner is the series defending champion and is looking to join rare air in becoming only the second driver to ever win four consecutive track points championships. All-time winningest driver, Keith Kauffman, is the only other driver to accomplish the feat as he did so from 1978-1981. Speaking of Kauffman, Dewease sits 14 back of the ‘Man from Mifflintown’ on the career winns list with 115 victories and will be looking to chip away at that total for his fourth career opening day trophy.

Last year’s winningest sprint car driver at the speedway, Macri, will be searching for his first career opening day triumph along with a who’s-who list of regular competitors and expected invaders searching for the $5000 prize.

The last driver to triumph on opening day and go on to claim the season ending track points title was Todd Shaffer in 2008.

Valley Supply will again serve as the series hard charger presenter and there will be $200 on the line for the driver who passes the most cars. This will also be the debut of their fan incentive program where the fans will have the opportunity to bring home various Valley Supply swag and possibly $30 cash and tickets the following week’s racing event.

Also new to this season is the Jim and Sandy Kline J&S Fabrication Warrior Award where one lucky driver will earn $1000 extra as a result of a random draw. This award is designed specifically to benefit those who finish farther back in the field and drivers eligible will be position’s 7-24.

In Super Late Model competition, Virginia’s Trevor Feathers scored the opening day triumph last season over Dan Stone, Jason Covert, Andy Haus and Ross Robinson. Haus went on to score the season ending points championship for the second time in his career. He bested Dylan Yoder, Colton Flinner, Mike Lupfer and Gary Stuhler.

The Super Late Models have been a part of opening day festivities yearly since 2013 and both Haus and Covert have two career triumphs in the event. Other drivers to claim victory in the division on opening day are Tim Wilson, Lupfer and Jeff Rine. Rine turned his triumph into a track championship in 2018.

New to this season, the series will race for a minimum of $3000 to win and $300 to start. This is a $500 increase on last year’s winner’s share and will be the standard for all races in 2021 for the division. Geroge’s Used Cars Inc. Will serve as the presenter of the series hard charger award with the driver passing the most cars at the end of the night earning a cool $200 in cash. Driver’s must be carrying a decal that will be passed around earlier in the night to be eligible.

For fans choosing to watch from home, racing activities will again be available via PPV streaming on FloRacing and information regarding purchase can be found at ww.floracing.com.

Weather permitting, there will also be an open practice at the Speedway Friday March 12th from 6-9pm. The session is open to any division cars participating at the Speedway in 2021 and grandstand admission is free for any fans wishing to catch a glimpse of the facilities/cars.

3/7/21

Mechanicsburg - Williams Grove Speedway will drop the green flag on the 2021 racing season coming up this Sunday, March 14 at 2 pm when it hosts the Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint cars for a $5,500 payday.

Presented by Hoosier, gates for the first event of the season will open at noon with warm ups slated for 1:30 pm.

The Sunday afternoon season lidlifter will feature the 410 sprints only in heat races and a 25-lap feature event.

Outlaws invader Carson Macedo of Lemoore, California, powered to the opening day sprint car victory at Williams Grove last March.

And there is already one invader slated to enter this week’s opener as Justin Henderson of Tea, South Dakota, a former regular at the track, has announced his plans to enter the fray of opening day.

The 2021 opener will also mark the return of Aliquippa’s Tim Shaffer to Williams Grove as a speedway regular when he rolls onto the track for the first time aboard the Mike Heffner No. 72 machine.

Shaffer was a regular at the track for one season in the early 2000s aboard the Apple Motorsports No. 12 sprinter.

Another new regular planning on making his debut on Sunday is Australian Kerry Madsen.

Madsen was named the new driver of the Michael Barshinger No. 24 in December and plans a full campaign at Williams Grove in 2021.

Macedo started third in the 25-lap opening day main last March and briefly fell backward during the early laps but managed to stay in the game behind leader Ryan Smith.

Danny Dietrich was chomping into Smith’s lead on the 16th tour when Macedo blasted to his outside in the first corner to steal second away before running down a struggling Smith to net command with 17 laps away.

Adult general admission for the 2021 season opener is set at $15 with youth ages 13-20 admitted for just $10. Youth ages 12 and under are always admitted for FREE at Williams Grove Speedway.

Williams Grove Season Opener Win List Full Of Standouts And Surprises

2021 Opener Is March 14

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

3/7/21

Mechanicsburg - Opening day at Williams Grove Speedway is a tradition that dates back to the maiden season in 1939 when The Flying Dutchman, Tommy Hinnershitz of Oley claimed the very first race held at the track.

And another chapter in Williams Grove lidlifter history is set to unfold this Sunday, March 14 at 2 pm when the 2021 season opener is spun off featuring the Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint cars.

Presented by Hoosier, gates for Opening Day 2020 will open at noon with the sprint cars racing for a $5,500 payday in a 25-lap main event.

Adult general admission is set at $15 with youth ages 13-20 admitted for just $10 while kids ages 12 and under are always admitted for FREE at Williams Grove Speedway.

A host of prominent and some not so well known names dot the opening day win list at Williams Grove Speedway.

Hinnershitz, a AAA East champion in his career, claimed a total of three openers.

Other top names of the 1940s and 1950s that scored the Williams Grove opener included Ted Horn, Jimmy Bryan, Johnny Mackison Sr. and more.

On his way to immortality for fans of the 1960s and 1970s, Leroy Felty scored the opener twice in his career, in 1961 and 1966.

A Texan destined for greatness by the name of AJ Foyt took the victory in 1964.

Another man on his way to racing immortality, Jan Opperman hit the local scene for his first of three Williams Grove opening day wins in 1970.

Other popular winners of the 1960s and 1970s included Kenny Weld, Dick Tobias, Kramer Williamson, Smokey Snellbaker, Ray Tilley and Bobby Allen.

The duo of Lynn Paxton and Keith Kauffman struck for a total of five lidlifter wins in the decade of the 1980s while a virtual unknown in sprint cars, Kevin Collins, upended the field in 1983.

The 1990s dawned with Kenny Adams scoring a victory before Don Kreitz Jr. and Fred Rahmer each took a pair of opener wins.

Brian Paulus closed the decade with what was perhaps considered an upset win before a youngster from Enumclaw, Washington, began the 2000s with an undisputed upset, coming at the hands of a pre-Nascar Kasey Kahne.

Greg Hodnett would etch his name on the historical first race win list twice during the 2000s while familiar names like Lance Dewease, Crish Eash, Kreitz and Rahmer would return along with a popular win for underdog Mike Erdley of Elizabethville.

Rahmer and Hodnett continued winning into the 2010s while first time checkers went to Danny Dietrich and Lucas Wolfe of Mechanicsburg.

By far, the upset of the decade of the 2010s came at the hands of New Oxford’s Gerard McIntyre Jr. in 2014.

Last year, California invader Carson Macedo took the victory for his first career oval victory.

SHAFFER AND HEFFNER TEAM GEL EARLY AND SCORE FIRST 410 WIN

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Saturday, March 13, 2021 (2PM) 410 Sprints + Central PA Legends

Saturday, March 20, 2021 (6PM) 410 Sprints + 358 Sprints

Saturday, March 27, 2021 (6PM) 410 Sprints + PASS/IMCA 305 Sprints

Abbottstown, PA (March 6, 2021) – Tim Shaffer has found success with car owner Mike Heffner early in the 2021 season. Shaffer followed up his impressive hard charger finish at last week’s Ice Breaker with a win on Saturday afternoon. Shaffer took the lead on lap 26 to earn his second career victory at the track.

Glenndon Forsythe started on the pole of the 30-lap feature. Missouri driver, Hunter Schuerenberg lined up second. Schuerenberg was one of two invaders to make the trip to race against the PA Posse despite the chilly weather. The second driver was Ohio-native Ricky Peterson.

After taking the green flag at the Mike Yeaple Starting Line Schuerenberg took the lead going into turn 1. Billy Dietrich used the outside line to get by Shaffer on the start for third.

The first caution of the race came on lap 1 when Chad Trout came to a stop on the front stretch. Trout stopped to alert track officials about a potential safety issue with Brandon Rahmer’s #88 machine. It appeared that the tail tank of Rahmer’s car was coming loose. Rahmer went to the pits and after assessing the situation the team decided to park the car. Trout rejoined the field.

Schuerenberg led Forsythe, Dietrich, Shaffer and Kyle Moody to the cone for the single-file restart. Hunter had a solid restart and caught the tail end of the field by lap 6.

The yellow flag waved again on lap 7 when Chad Trout had a right rear tire blow. Trout slowed on the front stretch in front of the leader, Schuerenberg, and the two made contact. Hunter had visible front wing damage but opted to stay out on the track.

Dietrich got to the inside of Forsythe for second on the restart, but the red flag came out for Steve Buckwalter who got upside-down in turns 1 and 2, in almost the same exact spot as he did last week.

Shaffer looked to the outside of Dietrich on the restart to try and take third while Forsythe looked to the outside of Schuerenberg for the lead. Neither could make the pass.

On the next lap Shaffer got by Dietrich for third off the bottom of turn 2 and started reeling in Forsythe.

With significant damage to the front of Schuerenberg’s car, his lead was dwindling as the battle for second continued behind him.

Shaffer and Forsythe crossed the line side by side on lap 17 with Shaffer having the slight advantage to take second place.

Dietrich followed and took third from Forsythe as the two raced down the back stretch.

Shaffer caught the leader, Schuerenberg, as they approached lapped traffic with 10 laps to go. Dietrich caught the leaders to make it a three-way battle for the lead.

Shaffer was using the bottom line around the 3/8-mile oval with Hunter running one groove up above Shaffer’s line.

Shaffer took the lead by a nose at the line on lap 26. Dietrich once again tried to follow, but the lapped car of Dylan Norris kept him from taking second.

Shaffer crossed the line 2.409 seconds ahead of Schuerenberg for his second career win at Lincoln. Schuerenberg had a broken left front shock in addition to the damage to his front wing. Despite the damage Hunter held on to finish second. Dietrich finished third and Forsythe was fourth. Moody rounded out the top five.

Heat race winners were Tim Shaffer, Tim Glatfelter and Glenndon Forsythe. Danny Dietrich was the hard charger driving from his 15th starting spot to a 6th place finish.

Next Saturday, March 13, Lincoln Speedway is back in action with 410 Sprint Cars and Central PA Legends. Racing starts at 2PM with pit gates opening at 11:30AM and grandstand gates opening at noon.

Port Royal Speedway to Postpone 79th Annual Opening Day Until Saturday March 13th

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Penn. (March 5, 2021)- As a result of the feedback we have been receiving from the drivers, owners and motor manufacturers and taking into consideration the fans, we have made the decision to cancel this weekend’s Sunday, March 7, 79th annual opening day racing activities at Port Royal Speedway, due to anticipated cold weather and high winds.

Speedway officials and the track promotion team have been monitoring the weather throughout the week and after much deliberation, decided it was in the best intertest of all parties involved to delay racing for another week.

As a result, we will hold a test and tune session on Friday, March 12, that is open to all divisions. It will be from 6-9pm EST and is $25 for pit passes with free general admission for fans.

Opening day will now be held on Saturday, March 13, and it will again feature the Weikert's Livestock 410 sprint cars racing for $5000 to win and the river Valley Builders super late models racing for $3000 to win.

General Admission will again be $20, Students will be $10 and Pit Admission will be $30.

~ Selinsgrove Speedway ~ A New Identity In The Twenty-Twenty’s

Local Businessman Todd Benner Joins Mike Heffner, Brian Scandle To Promote Selinsgrove Speedway

3/1/21

Selinsgrove, Pa. – As a new season of auto racing dawns at Selinsgrove Speedway, a fresh face has joined the promotional and management team at Selinsgrove Speedway as Selinsgrove businessman Todd Benner has joined Speedway Management Group LLC, the management team that currently heralds the historic oval’s efforts.

Benner, owner of nearby Selinsgrove Ford, has been involved in local sprint car racing on a sponsorship level for over a decade and has supplied the speedway’s pace truck for some 20 years while supporting the oval with other sponsorship efforts.

At the same time, fellow local business leader Brian Scandle of NRG Controls North, who has been part of the management team since its inception in 2016, will be increasing his role at the facility.

Both Scandle, of Sunbury, and Benner plan on taking active roles in not only speedway promotion but in race night activity as well.

“I'm excited to have Todd join our team as we work to make Selinsgrove Speedway a premium race track in central PA,” Scandle said.

General Manager Steve Inch of Lewisburg and majority partner Mike Heffner of Hellertown will continue their roles as lead members of the Selinsgrove management team.

Mike Heffner, well known as a successful sprint car owner and businessman, has been the driving force in the promotion of the speedway since Speedway Management Group LLC. was formed five years ago.

"I look forward to working with both Todd and Brian,” says Heffner.

“Together, their involvement will add to the success of the speedway not only this year but into the future as well.”

His move into the role of promoter at the speedway for the new season comes naturally to the fifty-five year old Benner, now a third-generation owner of Selinsgrove Ford.

“I guess racing has always been in my blood,” says Benner of his move into promoter.

“My dad (Ray) took me to the track when he owned the Selinsgrove Motors #63 late model driven by Paul Long in the 70’s and as I started to get more involved at Selinsgrove Ford, I wanted to have a relationship with Selinsgrove Speedway.”

Benner views his personal step up at Selinsgrove Speedway as a continuation of Selinsgrove Ford’s mission to be supportive of the community.

“Helping out in our community is what Selinsgrove Ford is all about,” Benner says.

“My passion for the track has only grown stronger. So I’m looking forward to working with all the Selinsgrove Speedway team members to continue to improve the track, to have great communication with the owners and drivers, and to have exciting racing for our growing fan base!”

Alan Kreitzer, an original member of the Selinsgrove Speedway promotional team, will now step back from active management of the speedway.

"The team of Mike Heffner, Brian Scandle and Todd Benner gives Selinsgrove a great management team moving forward", said Kreitzer "and I am very optimistic about the future of Selinsgrove Speedway.”

"We would like to thank Alan for all of his efforts in helping with the improvements at Selinsgrove Speedway since our group took over promotional duties in 2016,” noted Heffner.

"While we started as partners, we have also become good friends and I am happy that Alan will continue to be part of our team in an advisory capacity.”

General Manager Inch, who has been involved in the operations of the speedway for more than 30 years, echoes Heffner’s thoughts, “I’d like to thank Alan for his guidance over the last five years to keep Selinsgrove’s racing tradition alive and well,” he said.

“I look forward to Todd joining our promotional team for the track’s 75th anniversary. The Benner family is very generous in supporting community organizations and the speedway has been a beneficiary of their support for many years.”

Benner and Selinsgrove Ford will host Race Day At The Dealership coming up this Saturday from 10 am – 2 pm, offering season schedules and seat sales.

Selinsgrove Speedway will host a practice session, open to any division on the 2021 schedule, one week later on March 13 from 1 – 4 pm.

And then the track will open the 2021 season coming up on March 20 at 2 pm with the Short Track Super Series Northeast Modified Icebreaker 40 and the Crate 602 Sportsman Modifieds.

Sprint Cars and Super Late Models to Headline 79thAnnual Port Royal Speedway Opening Day on Sunday

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Penn. (March 1, 2021)- The sounds of roaring engines are set to return to the Port Royal Speedway this Sunday, March 7th, as the Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Cars and the River Valley Builders Super Late Models take to the track for the 79th Annual Port Royal Speedway Opening Day presented by Packer’s Concessions LLC.

In what has been a recent tradition, the Speedway will again utilize a Sunday opener where the Sprint Cars will compete for a $5000 winner’s share while the Super Late Models will race for an increased $3000 to win prize.

All gates open at 11A.M while racing is set to kick off at 2 P.M. Adult admission is $20, while students are $10. Pit admission is $30.

Last year, All Star Circuit of Champions invader Cory Eliason bested 45 other competitors to score his first career opening day triumph. Brent Marks, Logan Wagner, Lance Dewease and Anthony Macri rounded out the top-five.

Wagner is the series defending champion and is looking to join rare air in becoming only the second driver to ever win four consecutive track points championships. All-time winningest driver, Keith Kauffman, is the only other driver to accomplish the feat as he did so from 1978-1981. Speaking of Kauffman, Dewease sits 14 back of the ‘Man from Mifflintown’ on the career winns list with 115 victories and will be looking to chip away at that total for his fourth career opening day trophy.

Last year’s winningest sprint car driver at the speedway, Macri, will be searching for his first career opening day triumph along with a who’s-who list of regular competitors and expected invaders searching for the $5000 prize.

The last driver to triumph on opening day and go on to claim the season ending track points title was Todd Shaffer in 2008.

Valley Supply will again serve as the series hard charger presenter and there will be $200 on the line for the driver who passes the most cars. This will also be the debut of their fan incentive program where the fans will have the opportunity to bring home various Valley Supply swag and possibly $30 cash and tickets the following week’s racing event.

Also new to this season is the Jim and Sandy Kline J&S Fabrication Warrior Award where one lucky driver will earn $1000 extra as a result of a random draw. This award is designed specifically to benefit those who finish farther back in the field and drivers eligible will be positions 7-24.

In Super Late Model competition, Virginia’s Trevor Feathers scored the opening day triumph last season over Dan Stone, Jason Covert, Andy Haus and Ross Robinson. Haus went on to score the season ending points championship for the second time in his career. He bested Dylan Yoder, Colton Flinner, Mike Lupfer and Gary Stuhler.

The Super Late Models have been a part of opening day festivities yearly since 2013 and both Haus and Covert have two career triumphs in the event. Other drivers to claim victory in the division on opening day are Tim Wilson, Lupfer and Jeff Rine. Rine turned his triumph into a track championship in 2018.

New to this season, the series will race for a minimum of $3000 to win and $300 to start. This is a $500 increase on last year’s winner’s share and will be the standard for all races in 2021 for the division. Geroge’s Used Cars Inc. Will serve as the presenter of the series hard charger award with the driver passing the most cars at the end of the night earning a cool $200 in cash. Driver’s must be carrying a decal that will be passed around earlier in the night to be eligible.

For fans choosing to watch from home, racing activities will again be available via PPV streaming on FloRacing and information regarding purchase can be found at ww.floracing.com.

Weather permitting, there will also be an open practice at the Speedway March 6th from 1-4pm. The session is open to any division cars participating at the Speedway in 2021 and grandstand admission is free for any fans wishing to catch a glimpse of the facilities/cars.

Mechanicsburg - Reigning Williams Grove Speedway track champion Freddie Rahmer may only be 25 years old as he embarks on the 2021 racing season, but he has the perspective of a driver twenty years his elder as he eyes the oval’s season opener coming up in just two weeks.

The Cumberland County track will open the new season with a 410 sprint car only racing program coming up on on Sunday afternoon, March 14 at 2 pm.

The Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprints will race in a $5,500 to win, 25-lap main event to cap off the afternoon, presented by Hoosier Tire.

Rahmer and his RBR Racing No. 51 sprint car team are ready to defend his 2020 track title when they hit the clay at Williams Grove in two weeks.

“I think we are in good shape. We might be a little more prepared than we’ve been the last couple years,” Rahmer says of his team’s readiness for another assault on the prestigious track laurels.

“We work as hard as you can all winter. We don’t take too much time off at all. If we don’t start off good, we’ll work at it and make it good.”

“We are gonna’ shoot for that,” Rahmer says of his intentions to put up back to back track crowns during the new season ahead.

“We’re gonna’ try to win races first but that’s a goal. We’re gonna’ try again for sure.”

Rahmer also took a track crown in 2017, his first in the sport.

“I don’t think I’ve shown what we’re capable of yet and hopefully this year me and my dad and everyone else can just break through and show what we’re capable of really,” he says of his past performances and how they might stack up against the races to come.

“ I think we’ve been close in the last couple years, I know we’re capable of going to the next step up.”

Rahmer says mostly he thinks it all will come down to him, personally, as he sits in the race car, at speed.

“I don’t think we’re missing anything equipment-wise or anything you can purchase,” Rahmer says.

“I’m always focused when we’re there but to try to get the best we can out of every lap - I think things build on each other but I think It’s mostly me, being in a good mental spot at the race track and I think we’re in a good position to do that.”

And according to Rahmer, all the extra purse money that Williams Grove announced for the 2021 season in December made it a, “no-brainer,” to decide to stay at Williams Grove on Fridays for the new season when the team was making its plans during the winter months.

“It’s a no-brainer. We’re 100 miles from the track. They didn’t have to do it and they did and it’s the best paying local track and one of the best in the whole country so we’re definitely gonna’ support them,” Rahmer noted.

“We’re lucky to race there.”

Fans will be treated to a pleasing $15 adult general admission price for what is sure to be a great field of sprinters on hand for the lidlifter.

Youth ages 13 – 20 will be admitted for $10 while kids ages 12 and under are always FREE at Williams Grove Speedway.

TIM WAGAMAN WINS ICEBREAKER 30

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Saturday, March 13, 2021 (2PM) 410 Sprints + Central PA Legends

Saturday, March 20, 2021 (6PM) 410 Sprints + 358 Sprints

Abbottstown, PA (February 27, 2021) – Tim Wagaman followed up his 2020 Most Improved Driver award with an Ice Breaker win on Saturday. Wagaman accepted his award on the front stretch right before buckling in for the 30-lap feature. Saturday’s win was Wagaman’s first since 2014.

Wagaman lined up on the outside of the front row, next to pole-sitter, Kyle Moody. Moody took the lead when the green flag dropped to kick-off the 2021 season.

Defending track champion Freddie Rahmer pulled off after the first lap along with Steve Buckwalter.

Moody had just caught the tail end of the field when the yellow came out on lap 5 for Jordan Mackison who had come to a stop in turn 4.

Glenndon Forsythe went to the pits during the caution, ending his day. He had been running 19th. Before the green flag waved for the restart, Greg Plank came to a stop in turn 1. Plank got a push back to the pits and parked his #11P for the day.

Moody led Wagaman, Matt Campbell, Tim Glatfelter, and Chase Dietz to the cone for the restart.

Wagaman got to the outside of Moody going into turn 1 and the two drag raced down the back stretch. Wagaman got by Moody going into turn 3 to take the lead.

While the battle for the lead was underway, both Justin Peck and Tim Shaffer were making their way through the field. Peck was running ninth and battling Macri for eighth after starting 18th in the main event. Shaffer was up to 14th from his 24th starting spot.

The defending Ice Breaker winner, Danny Dietrich pulled off the track on lap, he had been running 19th.

Wagaman entered lapped traffic on lap 11 while Campbell challenged Moody for second.

Another caution came out on lap 12 when Scott Fisher fell off the pace on the back stretch.

This time the field was chasing Wagaman on the restart. Chase Dietz and Jordan Givler got spun around in turns 1 and 2 on the restart bringing out the caution.

Wagaman paced the field ahead of Moody, Campbell, Glatfelter, and Alan Krimes for another restart.

Tim had a solid start and got a good jump on Moody. Dylan Cisney restarted sixth and had a rough restart, but the field avoided him for a clean start.

The top three, Wagaman, Moody and Campbell were pulling away as they caught the tail end of the field once again.

As Wagaman tried to get by the lapped car of Rick Lafferty, Moody was able to close the gap. It also opened the door for Campbell to challenge Moody for second. Campbell got under Moody in turns 1 and 2 and took the second spot on lap 20.

A three car battle for the lead was well underway when Campbell got sideways at the end of the front stretch nearly taking out Moody and himself. Moody kept his composure and held on to second. Campbell’s misstep sent him back to fourth. K

Moody was within striking distance of Wagaman when the white flag waved but could not find a way by Wagaman.

Wagaman crossed the line .257 seconds ahead of Moody for his first win since 2014. Glatfelter finished third and Krimes was fourth. Campbell completed the top five.

Heat race winners were Dylan Cisney, Alan Krimes and Dylan Norris. Tim Shaffer was the hard charger driving from his 24th starting spot to a 12th place finish.

Next Saturday, March 6, Lincoln Speedway is back in action with 410 Sprint Cars and open practice. Racing starts at 2PM with pit gates opening at 11:30AM and grandstand gates opening at noon. The open practice is open to divisions on the 2021 Lincoln Speedway schedule.

Selinsgrove Speedway Season Laced With 75th Anniversary Events

2/21/21

Selinsgrove, Pa. – The 75th anniversary season of auto racing at Selinsgrove Speedway is set to get underway in one month when the Short Track Super Series modified circuit hits the track for the oval opener on March 20.

And the entire season at Selinsgrove Speedway will be laced with special events that give a shout out to the commemorative 75th milestone.

The first such event comes up on Saturday, May 15 with the running of the Super Late Model 46er.

The super lates will compete in the 46-lap event meant to represent the opening year of Selinsgrove Speedway, 1946.

Next up, the Modern Heritage 410 sprint cars will gather to compete in the Pennsylvania Speedweek Finale on Sunday, July 4 paying $7,500 to win.

And then a pair of special 75th anniversary races for the Modern Heritage 410s and the super late models will be staged coming up Tuesday night, July 20 at 7:30 pm.

The rare mid-week event at Selinsgrove Speedway will take place exactly 75 years to the date that the very first race ever to be contested at the track was staged back on July 20, 1946.

A few weeks later the second running of the Bill Holland Classic for USAC Silver Crown Champ Cars will take center stage.

The Holland Classic will honor the very first winner at the track on that day back in 1946, and it will again go 75-laps in distance while paying $8,075 to the winner in keeping with the 75th anniversary theme.

It will be a season-long celebration at Selinsgrove Speedway in 2021 as the half-mile facility remembers its roots with big races, big purses and big names in local and national dirt track racing.

To get the season started, the STSS Modifieds will race 40 laps for $5,000 to win, $1,000 for 10th and $400 to take the green flag from a purse totaling more than $25,570 on March 20. STSS Crate 602 Sportsman will take part in a 25-lap feature with $1,500 going to the winner and $100 to take the green flag.

The speedway will return a week later, on Sunday, March 28 at 2 pm with March Madness for the Modern Heritage 410 sprint cars and the super late models.

The oval and Selinsgrove Ford in Selinsgrove will host Race Day At The Dealership from 10 am – 2 pm on Saturday, March 6 featuring season schedules and seat sales.

Selinsgrove Speedway will host a practice session one week later on March 13 from 1 – 4 pm.

“We’re really happy to partner with Jeremy Elliott and Mike Mallett and SprintCarUnlimited.TV to broadcast so many of our biggest races to audiences all around the world during the 2021 season,” said Selinsgrove promoter Mike Heffner of the broadcast deal.

“This deal really is so versatile and viewer and track friendly that it just made a lot of sense to us to showcase our varied schedule to all walks of dirt track fans through SprintCarUnlimited.TV. We hope that the fans who can’t make it to Selinsgrove this year give our broadcasts a look.”

SprintCarUnlimited.TV will broadcast its first race of the 2021 Selinsgrove Speedway season coming up on Sunday afternoon, March 28 when the oval presents March Madness for the Modern Heritage 410 sprints and the super late models at 2 pm.

Pay-Per-View purchase prices will always be posted in advance on SprintCarUnlimited.TV and pre-purchases will be available.

Lincoln Speedway’s Ice Breaker Foiled by Mother Nature, Postponed to February 27

Abbottstown, PA (February 17, 2021) – Lincoln Speedway was forced to postpone their annual Ice Breaker due to the forces of Mother Nature. With the low temperatures and snow already on the ground with more forecasted to come, track officials made the decision to delay racing at the speedway until next weekend.

“We know that fans and race teams look forward to the Ice Breaker all off-season, there’s nothing better than seeing the shiny new racecars on the track for the first time.” said General Manager, Jerry Parrish. “Everyone at Lincoln Speedway is excited to get the season started, and we look forward to getting the Ice Breaker in as soon as Mother Nature cooperates.”

The Ice Breaker is now scheduled for Saturday, February 27 at 2:00pm. Last year the Ice Breaker was a huge success with a great turn out of fans and race cars with Danny Dietrich earning his second career Opening Day victory. The Ice Breaker has only been run in February 14 of the last 25 years. The first attempt at a February race came in 1994. That year the race was pushed back four weeks and a day due to weather. Following the first attempt the track ran successfully in February for six years. If Lincoln would have been able to get the race in this coming Saturday, they would join 1999 as the earliest the track has opened. In 1999 Lincoln Speedway held their opener on February 20, which is the earliest the track has opened. Fred Rahmer sits atop the win list of Opening Day wins at Lincoln with seven.

Located in Abbottstown, PA, the 3/8th-mile high-banked clay oval has been a staple in professional auto racing for over 60 years. The Pigeon Hills oval is one of several famed Central Pennsylvania race tracks which represent the toughest, most competitive weekly sprint car racing in the nation.

Parrish continued, “Hopefully fans will want to make the trip to watch a race live after seeing the consistently great racing we have at our weekly shows on FloRacing.”

USAC NON-WING SPRINTS, RICH IN HISTORY IN BERKS COUNTY, RETURN WITH TWO STOPS AT GRANDVIEW IN 2021, THURSDAY, APRIL 22 & TUESDAY, JUNE 15

BECHTELSVILLE, PA . . . . . Way back in 1956, Oley, PA sprint car driver Tommy Hinnershitz mastered the Reading Fairgrounds Speedway to win the first ever USAC Sprint car show in Berks County. He not only won the first race, but repeated again in 1957 and 1958. Since that time, seventy-two USAC events graced Berks County, taking place at Reading as well as the Grandview Speedway. The USAC history at Reading continued until 1979 when the track closed. The roster of USAC winners at Reading is legendary and to name just a few who join Hinnershitz on the win list include A.J. Foyt, Johnny Thomson, Eddie Sachs, Jim Hurtibise, Roger McCluskey, Bobby Unser, Johnny Rutherford, Red Riegel, Greg Weld, Bruce Walkup, Larry Dickson, Gary Bettenhausen, Toby Tobias, Pancho Carter, Larry “Boom Boom” Cannon, Lee Osborne and Ronnie Shuman. Paul Pitzer won the USAC finale at Reading in 1979.

Twenty-eight years later, the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series led by Bruce Rogers and Bob Miller, re-introduced USAC non-wing sprint car racing to Berks and other surrounding counties with the birth of the USAC Eastern Storm in 2007, that opened at the one-third mile Grandview Speedway in Bechtelsville, PA. The USAC Eastern Storm has been growing in this area ever since that first race.

This was the start of another tradition that brought nationally recognized sprint car drivers back to Berks County. The current day USAC stars and feature winners include Jesse Hockett, Bryan Clauson, Levi Jones, “Macho Man Brady Bacon”, Cole Whitt, “The Mad Man” Robert Ballou, Chris Windom, “The Modern Day Cowboy” Daron Clayton and C.J. Leary. This is a traveling organization certainly strong with drivers who have strong and defining personalities

Another piece of interesting history is that in 8 of the first 12 Eastern Storm Series, the driver who claimed the annual Eastern Storm title in June, translated that success to become the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car champion later that same year. So there is a correlation between the Eastern Storm and the USAC season long title winner of that same year.

In 2021, the Thunder on the Hill Racing Series at Grandview Speedway will host two USAC Amsoil National Non-Wing Sprint Tour events. The “Rub Rails & Rooster Tails” 40 is set for Thursday night, April 22 with $6,000 going to the winner . Broken Arrow, Oklahoma driver Brady Bacon will be looking to make it four wins in a row at Grandview. The record for most consecutive Thunder on the Hill victories is held by Greg Hodnett, with four wins coming on July 3, 2012, July 30, 2013, July 1, 2014 and July 29, 2014. Winning on this tricky and very demanding one third mile speedway is a challenge on any given night so winning three or even four in a row is quite an accomplishment.

Jim and Sandy Kline to Support Port Royal Speedway Sprint Car Drivers with Weekly $1000 Warrior Award

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Penn. (Jan 25, 2021)- Longtime car owners and supporters of the Central Pennsylvania race scene, Jim and Sandy Kline will be the official sponsors of the J & S Fabrication “Warrior Award” for the 2021 race season at Port Royal Speedway.

The “Warrior Award” will allow some lucky sprint car driver each week to pocket a cool $1000 in cash and will benefit those who finish farther back in the field. Beginning March 7th with the 79th annual Port Royal Speedway Opening Day kickoff and running through the Sept. 11th 54th annual Tuscarora 50, a winner will be drawn weekly in victory lane to receive the first-year award and the money.

For all regular weekly 410 Sprint Car Weikert’s Livestock events, the numbers eligible will be from seven to 24 and whoever finishes in the position number drawn will receive $1000 as that week’s winner. For all six of the Ollie’s Bargain Outlets All Star Circuit of Champions events and the two PA Speedweek shows the numbers will represent positions 11 to 24.

“Being a part of this sport for so long as we have, we are well aware how tough it can be on a driver to compete and run well week in and week out,” said Jim Kline, owner of J&S Fabrication. “Only one driver comes home the winner each night and we want to make sure the guys who are working just as hard to compete and don’t win can be rewarded as well.

“Maybe it goes to a guy who gets caught up in a wreck and tears of equipment or maybe it goes to a low buck guy that’s just making ends meet? Everybody in the field works their tail off to go out there and put on a show and this is just our way of spreading the love and further giving back to the sport we love,” he added.

J & S Fabrication is located in Grantville, Pa and has been in operation since 1990. They are a commercial industrial HVAC contractor and can be reached at 717-469-1409 for all your needs. Kline noted that it was the desire to go racing at a high level that inspired him and his wife to start up the business and without racing they wouldn’t be as successful.

“It’s wild to think, but I actually started J&S Fabrication with the thought that if we could be successful enough as a business, we could fund a racing team and further support the sport even more,” said Kline. “I met my wife at a racetrack many years ago and some of the best times of our lives have been spent sprint car racing. So, we’re excited to do this for the drivers and teams and hopefully it’ll become a yearly deal.”

He added that he appreciates all the hard work that Port Royal Speedway has put into making it a premier racing destination and he wanted to reward that hard work by being part of the 2021 race season.

“Back when we raced at Port Royal years ago, everybody from the officials to the workers always treated us with respect and love and we’ve never forgotten that,” said Kline. “Now as I look around and see how much work they are doing to make their facility great and special; I want to reward that effort and I’m proud to be a part of a track like Port Royal Speedway.”

Speedway head promoter Steve O’Neal added that he appreciates everything Jim & Sandy Kline has done for the sport and is looking forward to continuing to build on a relationship that goes back decades.

“You can’t talk about Central PA racing and car owners without adding Jim and Sandy Kline to the mix and we are incredibly proud and happy to present this Warrior Award from J&S Fabrication in 2021,” said O’Neal. “This is a huge deal for our drivers and we could not do it without the support of the Kline’s. I can’t thank them enough for choosing Port Royal Speedway and I’m excited for 2021.”

Valley Supply Stepping Up Big in 2021 for Port Royal Speedway Drivers and Fans

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Penn. (Dec. 21, 2020) Less than a month ago, Port Royal Speedway announced an increase on the winner’s share for all of the Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 races for the 2021 season. Thanks to one of our valued partners, the Saturday night April 17th event just got even bigger.

Valley Supply has come on board as the presenting sponsor for the sixth annual Keith Kauffman Classic and the winner will now receive $10,000 to win. Originally announced as paying $8000 to the winner for this season, the $10,000 marks a $4000 dollar increase from last year’s amount. The event honors Kauffman, a 24-time winner with the All Stars and the winningest driver in the history of Port Royal Speedway.

Joining the 410 Sprint Cars on the schedule for the night will be the Limited Late Models racing for a $1500 winner’s share.

Valley Supply driver Anthony Macri picked up the win during last years event. The company also serves as a sponsor for Dylan Cisney.

“To be affiliated with a legend like Keith Kauffman can only help our company and we see this is a great opportunity and an honor” said Harvey Sipe, owner of Valley Supply. “Sponsoring Port Royal Speedway and big events like the All Star Circuit of Champions will do great things for our company and we love supporting a sport whose fans are so passionate and deserving.”

For the 2021 race season at the Speedway, Valley Supply will also be offering a $200 Hard Charger award weekly to the night’s biggest mover in 410 Sprint Car competition. This marks the second year in a row they will be offering the bonus.

“The hard charger sometimes is the best race on the track and it’s something we really love doing,” said Sipe. “And sometimes that money can go to a smaller team who is deserving and every little bit can go a long way in helping those teams.”

Bob Weikert Memorial to Pay a Record 29k To Win as Part of Increased Winner’s Share for All Star Circuit of Champions Visits to Port Royal Speedway in 2021

 
 By-Justin Snyder

 
 Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Pa. (Dec. 4, 2020) Continuing a tradition that began in 1981, when Lynn Paxton won the first ever All Star Circuit of Champions sanctioned event at 'The Speed Palace', Port Royal Speedway is proud to once again host the Ollie's Bargain Outlets All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 during the 2021 race season.

 

 The series will visit the Juniata County oval three times in 2021 for a combined six nights of racing action. Unique to this season though will be an increased purse for all events highlighted by the Bob Weikert Memorial paying $29,000 to win for the finale and the 54th annual Tuscarora 50 paying a record $54,000 to win. These two races are the highest paying winner's shares on the 2021 All Star schedule at the moment.

 

 Formed in 1970 as the first 'Outlaw' Sprint Car organization of the modern era, the All Stars series has been a staple in the Central Pa. region for decades past. In its current form, the series is owned by motorsports legend Tony Stewart (since 2015) and features some of the best drivers in winged sprint car action that the sport has to offer.

 

 As customary, the series first visit to the speedway will occur Saturday, April 17th, with the sixth annual Keith Kauffman Classic paying $8000 to win for the sprint cars. This is a $2000 increase on last year's race, which was postponed until June as a result of Covid-19. The event honors Kauffman, a 24-time All Star winner and the Port Royal Speedway all-time leading feature winner.

 

 Joining the 410 Sprint Cars on the schedule for the night will be the Limited Late Models racing for a $1500 winner's share.

 

 Dale Blaney picked up the first ever event checkered flag in 2016, followed by three straight victories for local legend Lance Dewease from 2017-2019. Last season Anthony Macri broke Dewease's stranglehold on the event as he scored his first career series victory over a charging Kyle Larson and Danny Dietrich.

 

 A little over a month later, the series will return as the speedway will hold the annual Bob Weikert Memorial. The two-day event will occur May 29-30 and will pay $10,000 to win for the first night, followed by a race-record $29,000 on Saturday. This is an increase of $19,000 from last year's winner's share, with the 29 representing the famed Weikert sprint car's number. Night one will feature the PA Sprint Series 305 Sprint Cars also on the card while the Wingless Super Sportsman will tag along for the night two finale.

 

 The annual red, white and blue event has been held since 2003 and is a Memorial Day weekend staple that honors the legendary car owner, Bob Weikert. Last year's event was moved to mid-July as a result of Covid-19. The event first became a two-day spectacle in 2016 and the coveted 'Steer Head' trophy is one of the most sought-after trophies for drivers. Last year served as a return to the event for the All Stars after most recently sanctioning it in 2015 and the purse increase only guarantees that the race will remain a premier event in the area.

 

 Last year Kyle Larson swept the weekend to earn the overall championship and the trophies. Fred Rahmer (2), Todd Shaffer, Lance Dewease, Greg Hodnett (6), Jeff Shepard, Stevie Smith, Doug Esh, Cody Darrah, Lucas Wolfe (2), Danny Dietrich and Logan Wagner have all earned victories in the event.

 

 Lastly, the crown jewel event of the season, the 54th Annual Tuscarora 50, will once again be All Star sanctioned and will be held Sept 9-11th. This will be the second consecutive season that the event will be three days and is one of the most tradition-laden races in the Keystone state. Thursday night's preliminary will pay $8000 to win, which is a $2000 increase form 2020. The Pa Sprint Series 305 Sprint Cars will also be on the card. Friday night's 'Night Before the 50' will pay $10,000 to win, which is also an $4000 increase from 2020. The Super Late Models will also be on the card. Finally, representing the 54th annual running of the event, the Saturday night finale will pay a whopping $54,000 to the winner, which is a $1000 increase from last year. As customary there will be a non-qualifiers feature that night as well.

 

 Last year Cory Eliason and Lance Dewease (Night Before the 50) scored preliminary victories before Dewease etched his name further in the record books with his seventh career triumph in the event. The win gave Dewease an unprecedented win in the event in four consecutive decades.

 

 Other past winners of the event are Mitch Smith (3), Smokey Snellbaker (2), Lynn Paxton (3), Kenny Weld, Steve Smith, Jim Nace, Gary Howsare, Keith Kauffman (2), George Ferguson Jr, Bobby Allen (2), Dave Blaney, Doug Wolfgang (4), Stevie Smith (2), Todd Shaffer (3), Len Krautheim III, Don Kreitz Jr. (3), Fred Rahmer (4), Greg Hodnett (4), Doug Esh (2), Mike Erdley, Brian Montieth, Brent Marks, Donny Schatz and Aaron Reutzel.

 

 Stay tuned to our various social media outlets and visit our website www.portroyalspeedway.com for more information regarding the events and look for a full schedule shortly. We thank you for supporting the speedway and look forward to seeing you in 2021!

 

 

 

Port Royal Speedway Pays Out More Than 1.5 Million to Drivers During Record 2020 Season, 2021 Opening Day Announcement

By-Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Pa. (Dec. 2, 2020) With less than 30 days remaining in the year, the Juniata County Fair Board and track promotional staff at Port Royal Speedway are working extremely hard behind the scenes in preparation for the 2021 race season.

Before you know it, the sounds of race cars will again take center stage on the weekends in Juniata County and fans will again gather in the grandstands anxiously awaiting the call to 'Light the Fires and Kick the Tires' at the Speed Palace.

The speedway will officially kick off 2021 with a Test & Tune session from 1-4 PM on Saturday, March 6th. All Port Royal Speedway participating divisions are welcome to attend and this will serve as the lead up for the 79th Port Royal Speedway Opening Day the following day on Sunday, March 7th at 2:00 PM.

This will be the third consecutive season that the speedway will attempt a Sunday opener and will feature the 410 Sprint Cars and the Super Late Models in full programs of racing. The sprint cars will compete for a $5000 winners share while the super late models will by vying for $3000.

However, we would be remise if we didn't first take a look back on a 2020 season that was extremely successful and challenging all at the same time.

Facing multiple obstacles as a result of the global pandemic and Covid-19, Port Royal Speedway persevered to hold 28 races in 2020. While short of the originally scheduled 34 nights of racing, this came after a three-month hiatus due to the affects of the virus and includes the addition of several unplanned races to the schedule.

After all was said and done, the Speedway paid out over 1.5 million dollars to race teams across all divisions in total purse and point fund money. This is the most in the history of the speedway.

We'd like to thank all of the great car owners, drivers and sponsors who called Port Royal Speedway home in 2020 and it is because of your continued dedication, efforts and teamwork that we can reach numbers such as this.

The season kicked off on March 8th in front of a record-breaking crowd on hand for the 78th annual Port Royal Speedway opening day. A pair of first time winners visited victory lane that night as All Star Circuit of Champions invader Cory Eliason scored the $5000 Weikert's Livestock 410 Sprint Car victory and Virginia's Trevor Feathers earned the $2500 River Valley Builders Super Late Model triumph.

One week later Lance Dewease added to his historic total by picking up his 113th career Port Royal Speedway victory and Delaware's Scott Lingo capped the night by picking up his first career speedway triumph in super late model action.

This also served as the debut of the newly constructed infield access tunnel and new infield bathrooms/concessions. The offseason project aimed at increasing in handicap accessibility and fairground infrastructure was one of the most highly anticipated projects by fans and was met with high approval.

Covid-19 took center stage the following week and it would be 91 days in total before racing would return to 'The Speed Palace'. With completed pit grandstands and a newly constructed victory lane awaiting a winner, Mike Wagner turned back the clock to score his first 410 sprint car victory at the speedway since 2104 in what the track promotion team deemed 'Opening Day 2.0.' Gregg Satterlee won in super late model competition and Andrew Yoder won in Limited Late Model competition.

Entering the season with only one Port Royal Speedway career victory, Anthony Macri left his mark on the history books beginning the following week. Macri won the next four 410 sprint car events at the speedway and ran his streak to five when he pulled double duty during the Round 6 PA Speedweek event to also capture the URC 360 Sprint Car feature victory. This included picking up the 5th annual Keith Kauffman Classic against the All Star Circuit of Champions worth $6000. In total Macri scored seven total wins in 2020 to include the Labor Day Classic and the 14th annual Living Legends Dream Race worth $10,000.

Sticking to the trend of repeat winners, Satterlee also picked up another super late model victory to go back-to-back. This was part of a career season for Satterlee at the Speed Palace as he won five total features to increase his total from five to 10. He was also the lone local representative on the podium during the Lucas Oil Late Model finale.

With the Kyle Larson show dominating the headlines across the country, Port Royal Speedway was not immune from the California kid's dominance. Larson picked up his first career victory at the speedway during the Greg Hodnett Memorial finale of PA Speedweek worth $10,027 enroot to being crowned as the 2020 PA Speedweek champion.

He followed that up by sweeping the All Star Circuit of Champions Bob Weikert Memorial weekend and he also swept the World of Outlaws Nittany Showdown weekend in October for five total sprint car victories at the Juniata County oval. However, it was behind the wheel of a Late Model that Larson made the biggest splash when he defeated the Lucas Oil Late Model Series in only his second career start in a late model to win the Rumble by the River finale worth $15,000.

Tim Mcreadie won the opener for the series at the speedway, with rain cancelling the second of night of racing. The event was the largest paying late model race in the history of the speedway.

Brent Marks scored two 410 sprint car victories in 2020 to include the Curt Hershey tribute race and the 166th annual Juniata County Fair opener, while Jeff Halligan entered the record books with his first career win at the speedway in mid-July. Other winners in 410 Sprint Car competition was Blaine Heimbach and Logan Wagner, who also claimed the track championship for the third consecutive season.

The crown jewel of the season was the three-day Tuscarora 50. Cory Eliason and Lance Dewease (Night Before the 50) picked up preliminary victories and Dewease captured the $53,000 finale for a record seventh time. The win gave him wins in the event in an unrivaled four-consecutive decades.

In super late model competition, Mason Zeigler scored the win during the 16th annual Butch Renninger Memorial worth $5333 for his third career triumph at the speedway. Rick Eckert and Jeff Rine also scored wins for the year, but it was Andy Haus coming out on top as track champion in a battle that came down to the final night over Dylan Yoder and Colton Flinner.

Garrett Bard picked up on his winning ways from 2019 to score five victories in Penns Valley Meat Market PASS/IMCA 305 Sprint Series competition. He closed the season out by getting the win in the 9th annual Keystone RaceSaver Challenge. Other winners in the series were Nick Sweigart (2) and Derek Hauck.

Andrew Yoder picked up his second consecutive Selinsgrove Ford Limited Late Model championship on the strength of four series victories in 2020. The series raced 8 times in 2020 with Dillan Stake, Jared Fulkroad, Todd Snook and Marvin Winter also scoring wins.

Other winners at the track included Alex Bright in USAC East Coast 360 Sprint Car competition, Billy Brian Jr and Joey Biasi in wingless super sportsman competition and Travis Brown and Eric Boozel in the 4-cylinders.

In a late addition to the schedule due to Covid-19 restrictions in New York, the Speedway hosted the richest 2020 event for the Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series for three nights of racing as part of the first annual Speed Showcase 200. Matt Sheppard picked up the win during the night one preliminary, while Danny Bouc, Mike Gular, Billy Pauch Jr., Eric Rudulph and Max McLaughlin scored qualifier wins on night two. Mat Williamsom shocked everybody by scoring the night three finale win worth a whopping $53,000!

In closing we want to thank all of the fans for their continued dedication during a season that was challenging, ever-changing and sometimes frustrating. We know without you that we can't be successful and we are anxiously looking forward to building on last year's triumph to be even better.

Please stay tuned to our website and various social media outlets for updates regarding to the speedway and schedule! We'll see you all in 2021!

Garrett Bard Closes out Big Season With 9th Annual Keystone RaceSaver Challenge Victory and PA Sprint Series Championship

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Pa. (Oct. 24, 2020) Garrett Bard locked up the 2020 Penns Valley Meat Market PA Sprint Series 305 Sprint Car championships Saturday night after picking up the win in the 9th Annual Keystone RaceSaver Challenge at Port Royal Speedway,

The win was Bard's fifth of the 2020 race season at the Juniata County oval and came during the premier event for the affordable, recreational series.

"When we put this car together our goal was just to make the race as I was focused on winning the title here," said Bard, who crashed a car two weeks ago at Port Royal Speedway. "When I went into that first turn during group hot laps the car didn't turn at all and the set up was just way off to what I'm used to. To be standing here tonight is pretty special knowing all we went through to be here."

After a red flag halted the initial start, Bard used the outside line to pass pole sitter Robbie Batchy at the drop of the green flag and he immediately set sail on the field. Fourth starter Christian Rumsey settled into second, while fifth starter Justin Clark moved into fourth.

With Bard setting a torrid pace, Clark was on the move. On lap six he used the bottom of the speedway in turn's one and two to take the runner up position and he set his sights on Bard.

Bard entered lap traffic on lap seven and he was struggling to dispatch the slower cars initially, which allowed Clark to cut the distance in half by lap 10. Two laps later Clark was within two car-lengths of the leader and with 11 to go Clark was right on the tail tank of the leader heading to the start/finish line.

However, any chance at making a pass was halted when Jason Roush got turned around directly in front of the leaders in turn two to bring out the caution.

"When I got to traffic I was having all sorts of trouble with the car and I was having trouble getting on the brakes," said Bard. "We had that caution and I knew Justin was right there. I knew though with only 11 to go I likely wasn't going to get back into traffic and I was great in clean air."

Another caution halted racing action two laps later, but Bard was not to be denied as he again jumped out to a lengthy lead during a return to green. With four laps to go, Clark was chipping away at the leader and with two laps remaining Bard was closing on lap cars.

Clark made a last lap effort to go to the bottom in turn's three and four, but it wasn't enough to pass Bard, who took the checkered flag by a margin of .882 seconds over Clark, Rumsey, Jared Zionkowski and Ken Duke Jr.

Devin Adams finished sixth and was the night's hard charger by gaining 10 positions. Barthcy, Doug Dodson, Greg Dabrosky and Nick Sweigart rounded out the top-ten.

"I know starting second made things easier, but it was by no means an easy night," said Bard. "I have to thank my dad for busting his butt to get this car together and my whole team for getting us this far. This has been a special season and I'm thankful to be in victory lane."

For Clark, he thought he needed more laps and was surprised to be as close as he was at the finish.

"I knew that starting position was going to be prime to win this race, but maybe with two more laps we'd have had something for him," said Clark. "It's never easy coming up one spot short, but this is a good way to end the season and we'll try again next year."

Following the feature, there was the annual Founder's Cup for all non-qualifier drivers and Will Brunson picked up the win over Jeff Geiges, Mike Alleman, Colton Hoover and Dustin Young.

Branston Shue started on the pole for the event and looked to be in control for the first two laps when the caution flew for an two-car incident in turn two. Shue was forced to the pit area under caution though after a right-rear tire went flat from contact made with the outside guardrail.

Brunson inherited the lead and held on to lead the final 13 laps to pick up the victory by 2.089 seconds.

Tyler Cochran, Erin Statler, Kristina Pratt, Jimmy White and Reed Thompson rounded out the top ten.

"It's not real easy to get here in victory lane, even if it is a non qualifier race," said Brunson, who earned a guaranteed starting spot in next year's event as a result of winning. "This is crazy and I can't thank everyone enough for getting me to this point."

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Saturday, February 27, 2021 (2:00PM) Ice Breaker 30

Abbottstown, PA (October 17, 2020) – The 2020 season came to a close at Lincoln Speedway with the Night of Champions presented by Turner Automotive on Saturday night. Two first time track champions were crowned, and the night was filled with exciting action on the track.

Freddie Rahmer went into the night 180 points ahead of Danny Dietrich in the standings for the track championship. Rahmer was chasing his first championship at the track with Dietrich eyeing his second.

Bradley Howard and Jordan Givler shared the front row of the 30-lap feature with Dietrich lined up twelfth and Rahmer starting sixteenth.

Howard led the field into turn 1 with Adam Wilt threading the needle to get to second. Tyler Ross was working on Givler for third took the spot on lap 4.

Danny was working his way to the front of the field and was running in the top 10 when the yellow flag came out on lap 6 when Jim Siegel came to a stop on the front stretch.

Wilt headed to the pits with front wing damage. Wilt rejoined the field but had to give up his second place spot. Siegel also rejoined.

Howard led Ross, Givler, Chase Dietz and Tim Wagaman to the cone for the single file restart.

Howard paced the field slowly into turn 4 and launched to the lead at the cone. Ross hung with Howard on the restart with Dietz getting by Givler for third. Wagaman followed taking fourth.

Dietrich continued his charge to the front challenging Givler for fifth and taking the spot on lap 13.

Howard entered lapped traffic on lap 14 allowing the rest of the field to reel him in.

On lap 17 Dietrich had moved into third went to work on Ross for second. Dietrich made the pass for second on lap 19 coming out of turn 4. The pass for the lead came on the back stretch on the next lap.

With Dietrich in the lead Rahmer needed to finish seventeenth or better to claim the track championship. On lap 20 Rahmer was running eighth but he was not going to settle for a top 10. Freddie continued his charge to the front from his sixteenth starting spot and was in the top five with four laps to go.

Dietz was battling Ross, who was in the #75 car that Dietz had run most of the year, for third late in the race.

Dietrich got to the checkered flag to claim his eighth win of the year at Lincoln. Behind Dietrich the last lap was filled with excitement as Dietz beat Howard to the line by .003 seconds in a photo finish for second. Rahmer made a last lap pass on Ross to take fourth.

The 410 sprint heats were won by Bradley Howard, Troy Wagaman Jr., Jordan Givler and Tyler Ross.

Matt Findley Wins and Cody Fletcher Claims Title

Going into the final race of the season, four drivers were mathematically eligible to claim the track championship. Todd Rittenhouse Jr. had a 75 point lead over Cody Fletcher. Brett Wanner and Steve Owings were also in the running.

Matt Findley and CJ Tracy made up the front row for the 20-lap feature with Rittenhouse and Fletcher lined up side-by-side in row three.

Findley led the field into turn 1 but the red flag waved before a lap was completed. Zachary Cool got upside down in turn 4. Zachary Allman, Mark VanVorst, and Jeff Paulson were also collected. Allman and VanVorst rejoined the field for a complete restart.

Once again Findley led the field into turn 1. Another red flag came on lap 1 when Chris Arnold got upside down in turn 2. Travis Scott and Alyson Dietz were also involved but both were able to rejoin.

Findley led Tracy, Fletcher, Chris Frank, and Zane Rudisill to the cone, but the yellow flag waved on the restart when Kyle Rohrbaugh hit the wall in turn.

Paulson rejoined the field under caution and restarted a lap down.

The field continued to struggle in getting laps completed as another caution came on lap 2. This time it was for Jacob Balliett who got spun around in turn 4. Balliett rejoined the field.

Red flag conditions on the track came again on the restart when Travis Scott landed on his side coming out of turn 2.

Officials opened the red for fuel.

Once the field was underway Findley pulled away. Rudisill was challenging Frank for fourth and took the spot on lap 6.

The yellow came out on lap 8 when Justin Foster fell off the pace on the back stretch.

Findley led Tracy, Fletcher, Rudisill and Frank to the cone for the restart.

The final caution of the night came on lap 10 when Jordan Strickler and Todd Rittenhouse Jr. got together going into turn 1. Jacob Balliett was also collected. Rittenhouse had extensive damage to the front of the car and was not able to rejoin the field ending his hopes at the championship.

Fletcher looked to the inside of Tracy for second but could not make the pass on the restart.

Findley beat Tracy to the checkers by 1.001 seconds for the win. Fletcher finished third, solidifying his first track championship. Rudisill crossed the line fourth and in his Lincoln Speedway debut, Cody Phillips finished fifth.

Larson Makes It a Clean Sweep During Port Royal Speedway Nittany Showdown

Port Royal Speedway

- PORT ROYAL, Pa. (10/10/20) The ink hadn’t even dried on the page before Kyle Larson had another accomplishment to be written in his 2020 book of dirt racing records.

Less than 24 hours after winning the opening night of the Nittany Showdown at Port Royal Speedway on Friday, Larson, of Elk Grove, CA, swept the weekend by winning Saturday night’s $15,000-to-win finale, earning his 20th career World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series victory – tying him with Greg Hodnett for 27th on the Series all-time wins list. It was also the third time he’s swept a doubleheader weekend with the Series in 2020.

“Another awesome race car,” Larson said. “Can’t thank everybody enough. There’s a lot of people that help (owner and crew chief) Paul’s (Silva) team do what we do, and we can’t do it without them.”

His victory didn’t come without a pinch of luck, though. While Larson had the dominate car Friday night, Brent Marks, of Myerstown, PA, did what few have been able to do all year during Saturday night’s race; he passed Larson for the lead.

It first took 27 laps of eye widening racing to get to the point.

PA Posse members Lance Dewease, of Fayetteville, PA, and Anthony Macri, of Dillsburg, PA, lined up on the front row, poised to end the Posse’s losing streak against the Outlaws this year and not be shutout of a win for the first time since 2008.

When the 30-lap Feature commenced, Dewease pulled ahead with the lead and Larson wasted little time to catapult himself from fourth to second on the opening lap. Dewease used the clean air to his advantage and gapped Larson by about a second in the opening laps. However, he almost lost everything when he hit the wall in Turn 2.

Keeping his throttle control and steering in line, Dewease was able to recover from his mistake and continue with no issues. The only problem it presented for him was it allowed Larson to close in. And once Larson had Dewease within reach, his charge was imminent.

Larson and Dewease waged a two-lap war for the lead on Laps 9 and 10 before the Finley Farms #57 prevailed as the victor. The race was now Larson’s to lose.

On a restart with 14 laps to go, Marks was poised to be the one to make Larson lose it. He powered around the outside of Sheldon Haudenschild to take third and then made quick work of Dewease to steal second. Larson pulled away to about a second lead, but Marks had the high side mastered and cut a tenth of a second off Larson’s lead each lap. And once lap traffic came into play, Larson’s reign at the front started crumpling.

Marks, a Posse member that used to be a full-time Outlaw, was on the hunt for his first Series win in 2020 and to end that Posse losing streak. With three laps to go, he held the key to accomplish both feats. But before he could get a grip on it, a caution took it away.

Larson got held up by the lap car of Spencer Bayston while trying to pass him around the bottom, giving Marks a surprising run around the top to power around Larson for the lead down the backstretch. Seconds later, yellow lights flashed around the track for Kerry Madsen, who stopped on the track with a right front issue. With the lap no completed, Larson was able to keep the lead for the restart.

“I’m a little disappointed but it’s hard to be disappointed with second with the World of Outlaws, especially against Kyle,” Marks said. “For once we had a better car than he did. It just didn’t work out. It’s all good. I’m really proud of our team.”

When the green flag waved for the final time Saturday night, Larson launched ahead of Marks on the start and pulled away to his 12th Series victory of the season in 24 starts and 41st dirt racing victory in 81 starts this year.

“I definitely got really lucky there,” Larson said. “Marks surprised me when he ripped around me. Honestly, I thought Lance (Dewease) would be the guy coming. I peeked back and I could see someone was running the middle and I thought it was Lance. I should’ve peeked at the board I guess and seen the 5 (car of Marks) was coming and I would’ve known where he was running. I would’ve been more aggressive when I got to traffic. I got lucky and I’ll take it.”

Dewease rounded out the podium and championship contender Logan Schuchart finished fourth – earning the KSE Racing Hard Charger Award with his run from 12th to fourth. Schuchart’s finish also helped him chip away at reigning champion Brad Sweet’s points lead. He’s now 32 points behind Sweet – who finished eighth.

“It’s nice just to go forward,” said Schuchart, of Hanover, PA. “We’ve been so consistent for so long. And to be at the front of the points, you have to be consistent to be up there. Just says how are team is running. For the last few weeks, for whatever reason, we’ve been struggling a little bit. But these Drydene guys they keep working hard and we just keeping working at it. You’re going to have good nights and bad nights. Hopefully more good than bad.”

Sweet’s eighth-place finish was good enough to help his Kasey Kahne Racing team reclaim the points lead for the team championship from Jason Johnson Racing. David Gravel, driving the JJR #41, finished 21st, allowing KKR to move to a 12-point lead ahead of JJR.

Kyle Larson Claims Night One of the Nittany Showdown with World of Outlaws at Port Royal Speedway

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Pa. (Oct. 9, 2020)- Kyle Larson has made Port Royal Speedway his personal playground in 2020. He's beat the PA Posse during Pennsylvania Speedway at the track. He's beaten the Ollie's Bargain Outlets All Star Circuit of Champions as well. Heck, he even beat the Lucas Oil Dirt Late Model Series at the Juniata County oval.

Well, Larson checked another series off the Port Royal bucket list as he went wire-to-wire to defeat the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Cars during night one of the Nittany Showdown Friday night.

The win was worth $8000 and put Larson at 40 wins on the season. More remarkable is the fact that he's done so in only 80 starts for an incredible %50 win-rate for the season.

"I've gotten to 30 wins before, but 40 seems a little unrealistic when you really think about it," said Larson. "In the past we have only raced maybe 20 or 30 races on dirt and this year we've gotten to do it a lot more and this just shows how good we can be when we get out more. I don’t know that I could've ever dreamed up this year if I tried."

Larson earned the pole position courtesy of winning the dash and got the early jump on outside front row starter, Danny Dietrich, at the drop of the green flag. Dietrich tried to slide under Larson as the two entered turn one, but it would be as close as the Gettysburg, Pa. native would get.

Fourth starting Brock Zearfoss moved into the third spot on the opening lap while Sheldon Haudenschild and Gio Scelzi made up the top-five.

Larson was setting a blistering pace as he cruised around the top of the Juniata County oval and he entered lap traffic with a nearly 2.0 second advantage on lap six. If Dietrich was hoping the lap cars would slow the California native down, he was mistaken as Larson stretched his lead to nearly 2.6 seconds by lap 10.

Knifing in and out of the lap cars with ease, Larson stretched his lead to nearly 3.7 seconds by lap 15. The caution would fly one lap later when Brent Marks got into the turn four guardrail and collected James McFadden, Outlaw points leader Brad Sweet, Carson Macedo and Lance Dewease.

Sweet would tag the rear of the field and salvage what could've been a big hit in the points battle. McFadden and Marks was able to return as well.

Dietrich once again tried a slider attempt on the restart, but it was all Larson again as he rocketed off the top of the cushion to lead. Haudenschild moved into the third position on lap 20, while Scelzi moved to fourth on lap 23.

Meanwhile Larson was back in lap traffic and was continuing his domination of the event. Dietrich was able to close slightly over the final three circuits but when the checkered flag flew, it was Larson by an advantage of 1.606 second.

Dietrich, Haudenschild, Scelzi and Zearfoss made up the top-five while Anthony Macri, Donny Schatz, David Gravel, Freddie Rahmer and Kerry Madsen completed the top five. Rahmer was the night's hard charger by gaining 11 positions form the 20 starting spot.

Sweet was able to salvage and 11th place finish, which was one better then second in points Logan Schuchart and allowed him to further stretch his points lead to 40 points. Schatz, who's third in series standings, was able to close to within 62-points as the season winds down.

However, the night belonged to Larson and his team.

"I felt really good in the Dash and I fellt like the car was maybe a little different in the feature," said Larson. "I could slide lappers and not really lose momentum and I knew that be important with Danny behind us. The car was just so good and I can’t thank these guys working on it enough ads they are the ones making this all happen."

For Dietrich, he knew the restarts were pivotal for him to pass Larson but felt his car wasn't good enough on the bottom to really catch him.

"Kyle is really good on restarts and going to the bottom wasn't ideal or the place to be," said Dietrich. "It was really the only option though to pass him, but overall I'm really happy with the car and this is a huge improvement on the last few weeks."

NOS Energy Drink Feature (25 Laps) – 1. 57-Kyle Larson [1][$8,000]; 2. 48-Danny Dietrich [2][$4,000]; 3. 17-Sheldon Haudenschild [3][$2,500]; 4. 18-Gio Scelzi [6][$2,200]; 5. 3Z-Brock Zearfoss [4][$2,100]; 6. 39M-Anthony Macri [8][$2,000]; 7. 15-Donny Schatz [5][$1,800]; 8. 41-David Gravel [7][$1,600]; 9. 51-Freddie Rahmer [20][$1,500]; 10. 2M-Kerry Madsen [10][$1,300]; 11. 49-Brad Sweet [15][$1,200]; 12. 1S-Logan Schuchart [21][$1,100]; 13. 14S-Tony Stewart [9][$1,000]; 14. 9-James McFadden [11][$700]; 15. 5-Brent Marks [13][$600]; 16. 11-T.J.

Port Royal Speedway Set for Annual Nittany Showdown Featuring the World of Outlaw Sprint Cars

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Pa- (Oct. 5, 2020) After a month-long break, Port Royal Speedway will continue with their 2020 racing season with a two-day visit by the NOS Energy Drink World of Outlaws Sprint Cars Series Friday and Saturday October 9-10 for the Nittany Showdown.

This will be the third consecutive season where the Outlaws will attempt to visit for a two-day event and it’s expected that a large field of cars will trek to Juniata County for a chance to take home the victory and the bragging rights against the best the sport has to offer.

Last year’s event saw Outlaw mainstay Donny Schatz pick up the win on Friday night, while Saturday night’s racing activities were cancelled due to rain. For Schatz, the win was his third consecutive feature victory at ‘The Speed Palace’ and he will be looking to make it four in a row in 2020.

Past winners in Outlaw competition along with Schatz (4) are Logan Shuchart, Brad Sweet, Ryan Smith, Jason Meyers, Brad Furr, Danny Wood, Doug Wolfgang, Don Kreitz Jr. and Lynn Paxton won the very first visit in July of 1979.

Logan Wagner already locked up the Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Car track championship at the speedway and he will be looking for his first career Outlaw triumph. Anthony Macri currently leads the division in wins at the Speedway in 2020 with six wins to his credit. He will be looking to defend the local turf along with Lance Dewease (115 career speedway victories), Danny Dietrich, Lucas Wolfe, Brent Marks, Dylan Cisney and many more.

It is also expected that several other outsiders will make the trek to the Juniata County oval such as Brian Brown (Knoxville Track Champion), Gio Scelzi and many others as well. Kyle Larson has picked up three victories at the Speedway this season and may also attend.

To go along with the PA Posse vs the Outlaws rivalry, the Outlaws points battle is also up for grabs entering the weekend. Currently Brad Sweet holds a 38-point advantage in the standings over Schuchart and a -70 advantage over Schatz. Sheldon Haudenschild (-150) and Carson Macedo (-188) make up the top five.

David Gravel, Daryn Pittman, Jacob Allen, Parker Price-Miller and Kraig Kinser complete the top ten. Pittman recently hooked back up with local car owner Mike Heffner to finish off the 2020 campaign together. Pittman has two career victories at the speedway.

This would be the second career championship for Sweet if he is to hold on. A strong run in Central Pa. would do wonders in his quest as the field will be as tough as anywhere and points are crucial.

Friday’s Preliminary event will pay $8000 to win and Saturday’s finale will pay $15,000 to win. Both races are 30 laps in distance.

Saturday’s finale will also feature the PASS/IMCA PA Sprint Series 305 Sprint Cars competing in a 24-car invitational (Top 24 in points) feature event.

Schatz Holds Off Larson, Wins Williams Grove 75K National Open

Freddie Rahmer Is 2020 Track Champion

10/3/20

Mechanicsburg – Donny Schatz won the biggest sprint car race in the nation on Saturday night, taking the 58th annual, $75,000 to win World of Outlaws Champion Racing Oil National Open at Williams Grove Speedway.

It was the North Dakota driver’s unrivaled sixth career win in the oval’s marquee event.

Schatz was the third and final leader in the hotly contested 40-lap event with Pennsylvania’s own Logan Schuchart leading at the start with Friday night winner and Saturday polesitter David Gravel falling into second.

Schuchart was lightning fast at the start of the race, bolting out to a two-turn lead in the early going before a caution flag for a stopped Brock Zearfoss slowed the pace on the fourth lap.

Gravel kept Schuchart a bit closer on the restart, not letting him get quite as far away.

Then with nine laps down another caution flag bunched the field with Gravel and Schatz restarting second and third.

However the ensuing restart turned yellow again for a blown tire on Danny Dietrich’s racer.

Dietrich was up to eighth in the field when the tire let go after starting 14th.

Only another three laps were completed before another caution flag unfurled, this time for a slowing Aaron Reutzel.

And on each of the prior double file restarts, Gravel was able to successfully jump in line directly behind Schuchart with Schatz following suit.

But on this restart, Gravel pulled the trigger for control as he raced off of the second turn cushion by ducking to the inside lane on the backstretch to blast under the leader in turn three and take over as the pacesetter.

And again, Schatz followed suit.

As it would turn out that Schatz was the man to beat as he began locking down to the low side in the third and fourth turns to reel in Gravel by lap 18.

The pair raced by the flag stand with Schatz nipping at Gravel’s heals on laps 18 and 19 and all the while the duo was closing in on the rear of the field.

And that’s when Schatz made his winning move, just as Gravel entered traffic on lap 21.

As two-time National Open champion Gravel entered the first turn with a bit of room to spare on the bottom side, Schatz motored by using that spare room to net the lead.

Schatz had a 1.171 second lead over Gravel when the race was halted for a scheduled fuel stop on lap 25.

The restart saw fifth starter Kyle Larson come to life as the final 15 laps would go non-stop.

Larson disposed of third running Schuchart when action restarted and he then drove past Gravel with 13 laps to go.

Schatz then entered lapped traffic with seven laps remaining, allowing Larson to close in for the win.

It took until the final lap for Larson to pull up on leader Schatz before going for a banzai run through the third and fourth corners as the pair raced to the checkers.

Larson blasted the outside line as he entered turn three and pulled to Schatz’s outside but just as it appeared that he might edge in front to take the 75K, his mount jumped the cushion in turn four, allowing the victory and Schatz to slip away.

“Before that race I was the only five-time National Open winner, now I’m a six-time National Open winner,” Schatz said.

“We just kept our speed up and kept rollin’. It feels great, it’s been a trying year,” the winner stated.

The victory was just the fifth of the season for the ten-time World of Outlaws champion on the 2020 series tour.

“The restarts early weren’t really working in our favor,” Kyle Larson commented after finishing second.

“We made the car better under the red and gave it all we had. I feel like we had a good car, definitely a car capable to win but just came up short,” Larson said.

Larson finished just .579 seconds behind Schatz at the finish line.

Schuchart was third followed by Gravel and Sheldon Haudenschild.

Sixth through 10th went to Daryn Pittman, Jacob Allen, Anthony Macri, defending National Open winner Brent Marks and Brad Sweet.

Heats went to Larson, Allen, Schatz and Gravel with Shane Stewart taking the B Main.

Spencer Bayston won the C Main and Chad Trout won the non-qualifiers race.

Troy Wagaman won the D Main.

Gravel earned the pole for the main event by winning the dash.

Sheldon Haudenschild set fast time over the field of 54 cars with a lap of 16.685 seconds.

Lance Dewease was the hard charger in the feature event.

Freddie Rahmer finished 12 in the feature and officially became the 2020 Williams Grove Speedway track champion.

The title is the second of the young Rahmer’s career.

David Gravel Scores Night One Of Williams Grove National Open,

Shane Stewart Busts 18-Year Old One-Lap Track Record With 16.111 Lap

9/25/20

Mechanicsburg – David Gravel won opening night of the Champion Racing Oil National Open for World of Outlaws Sprint Cars at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, taking $10,000 for his second oval win of the season with the circuit.

The track returns to action Saturday night with the 58th annual Champion Racing Oil National Open paying $75,000 to win as the biggest sprint car race in the nation unfolds beginning at 7:30 pm.

Freddie Rahmer and Gravel shared the front row for the start of Friday night’s 25-lap main event and Gravel took the lead over Rahmer at the start, chased by Shane Stewart and Kyle Larson.

By lap five Gravel had a half straightaway lead over the field with Larson now up to third.

A fleet-running Gravel entered the backmarkers already on lap seven as the cars of Rahmer, Larson and Stewart all raced together for second.

Stewart took a stab at Larson to reclaim third on lap 11 but by that time Larson was honing in on Rahmer for what would be repeated passes for the spot only to see Rahmer blister back into the position.

With leader Gravel now a straightaway ahead, Larson took his first shot at second on lap 18 by laying a slider on Rahmer in the first turn only to see Rahmer drop underneath and reclaim the spot in turn two.

Two laps later, Larson repeated the feat in the first turn and again Rahmer dropped below in the middle of the corner and rallied back to second.

However by that time Larson’s machine was really coming on and he shot low into the third turn for the runner-up spot with four laps to go and secured second.

But then a lap and a half later an uncharacteristic flub on the turn two cushion saw him nearly loop the car with Rahmer hot on his heels.

Rahmer went hard on the binders to narrowly avoid broad siding Larson as Larson also straightened the car to get out of the corner still running second.

And by that time the race was all but over as Gravel sped to the victory by 2.505 seconds.

“I got clear of Freddie but then overdrove one and two, high centered on the cushion, and it turned me sideways,” Larson said of his miscue with two laps to go.

Gravel commented on his strategy in the event.

“I knew I just had to attack, attack, attack,” the Connecticut pilot said.

Rahmer followed Larson in third followed by Aaron Reutzel and Anthony Macri.

Sixth through 10th went to Shane Stewart, Donny Schatz, Lance Dewease, James McFadden and Kerry Madsen.

Shane Stewart busted the 18-year old one lap track record in qualifying by turning a lap of 16.111 seconds over the field of 57 cars.

Heats went to Stewart, Reutzel, Gravel and Larson with Rahmer claiming the dash.

Brent Shearer won the non-qualifiers race with Wayne Johnson taking the D Main.

Kyle Moody won the C Main and Parker Price-Miller took the B Main.

Brad Sweet was the RV Four Wheel Drive and Performance Automotive Hard Charger.

Feature Finish, 10/2/20:

410 sprints, 25 laps: 1. David Gravel, 2. Kyle Larson, 3. Freddie Rahmer, 4. Aaron Reutzel, 5. Anthony Macri, 6. Shane Stewart, 7. Donny Schatz, 8. Lance Dewease, 9. James McFadden, 10. Kerry Madsen, 11. Brad Sweet, 12. Brent Marks, 13. Sheldon Haudenschild, 14. Gio Scelzi, 15. Brian Montieth, 16. Carson Macedo, 17. Logan Schuchart, 18. Danny Dietrich, 19. Cory Eliason, 20.

58th Annual Williams Grove Champion Racing Oil National Open Is This Week

Outlaws vs Posse $75,000 Match-Up Puts Focus Of Sprint Car World On Williams Grove October 2 & 3 As Contenders Gear Up Anticipated Contest!

9/27/20

Mechanicsburg – The biggest and richest sprint car race in the East and in the history of Williams Grove Speedway is at hand as the 58th annual Champion Racing Oil National Open looms this weekend at the Cumberland County oval.

Sanctioned by the World of Outalws Sprint Cars Series, the two-day affair on October 2 and 3 will put the eyes of the sprint car world on Williams Grove Speedway.

Slated for October 2, the National Open Preliminary will feature a 25-lap main paying $10,000 to the winner on Friday night.

Then on Saturday, October 3, the 2020 Champion Racing Oil National Open will again offer the biggest winner’s share ever in the history of the oval and in the East, at $75,000 for 40-laps of work.

Besting all other sprint car events this year, the widely acclaimed race will go down in history as the richest one-day event and biggest payday in sprint car racing across the nation, with Saturday’s A-Main total purse alone eclipsing $130,000!

The World of Outlaws drivers will enter the meet with Californian Brad Sweet atop the series point standings to go along with eight wins on the season.

But just 40 points back of Sweet is home state native Logan Schuchart of Hanover aboard his grandfather Bobby Allen’s No. 1S.

Schuchart has six wins this season and may be primed for his first ever Williams Grove Open win.

However lurking just behind Schuchart, third in series points although perhaps a bit off of his feed this year, is the winningest driver in National Open history, perennial WoO champion Donny Schatz who has taken the prestigious affair an unprecedented five times. .

A two-time Open winner, David Gravel has been strong this season on the outlaws tour and could also be a contender along with Oklahoma’s Daryn Pittman who has finished second on five occasions in the National Open.

Pittman is due for a win in the race and this year could do the trick now that he has reunited with former local car owner Mike Heffner who likewise is overdue for a victory in the historic spectacle.

Freddie Rahmer enters the final two races of the year in the Open as the Williams Grove point leader by 145 points over defending National Open winner Brent Marks.

Rahmer has never won the Open although his father Fred does own one win and could certainly guide his son to his first triumph.

One-time Open champion Danny Dietrich is currently third in points.

Local Lance Dewease, a four-time Open winner himself, could also be considered a favorite by the PA Posse faithful as he looks for his 100th career Williams Grove Speedway victory with the talents of former driver/car owner Don Kreitz Jr. and mechanic Davey Brown Sr. turning the wrenches.

The National Open will see the 2020 Williams Grove Speedway Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint car series champion crowned at the conclusion of Saturday’s Open.

Adult general admission for October 2 is set at $30 with youth ages 13 – 20 priced at $15. Adult admission for October 3 is $35 with youth priced at $20.

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

Both nights of action are slated to get underway at 7:30 pm.

58th Champion Racing Oil Williams Grove National Open Adds To History This Week With Record Breaking $75,000 Top Prize, Oct. 3 Winner’s Share Largest Sprint Car Payout In State, East And Nation In 2020

Another Chapter In Tremendous History Of Event To Be Written Saturday

9/27/20

Mechanicsburg – Sprint car fans in the East will assemble Saturday night to see the 58th running of the Williams Grove Speedway Champion Racing Oil National Open for sprint cars sanctioned by the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Cars Series, going 40-laps in distance and paying a gigantic $75,000 to the winner.

This year’s event will again be momentous, as the champion will pocket the biggest cash payday ever in the history of the oval and in the East, at $75,000.

And this season, the widely acclaimed event will go down in history as the richest one-day event and biggest payday in sprint car racing across the nation, with Saturday’s A-Main total purse alone eclipsing $130,000!

The National Open has a grand history that dates back to its inception and first champion in 1963. It is a history that pre-dates all other season-finale races held anywhere in the East.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Lynn Paxton went back-to-back in 1982 and 1983 and stunned the racing world after his second 75-lap win by going into retirement during the off-season.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Schatz was again the winner in 2007.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

An uncanny three more days of rain and raw weather wiped out a second attempt at a three-day nationals in 2016.

An outlaws make up two weeks later found Danny Dietrich taking the lead from Joey Saldana with two laps to go in the 40-lap affair to score a wildly popular win for the Pennsylvania Posse. Brad Sweet also took a turn at leading the main.

Connecticut’s David Gravel struck for his second $50,000 score in the 2017 National Open. Gravel took the lead from Donny Schatz and then took the lead back from James McFadden to win the 55th Annual affair.

An emotional 2018 event held just days after the tragic death of 2009 National Open champion Greg Hodnett saw local driver Lance Dewease win his fourth career nationals for his fourth different car owner.

Driving for Don Kreitz Jr. in the No. 69K, Dewease wrestled the lead away from Brock Zearfoss with a three-wide move in the second turn on lap 24 to seal the 40-lap deal, worth $56,000. A tearful Dewease dedicated the victory to Hodnett.

Brent Marks of Myerstown won the richest sprint car race in the history of Williams Grove Speedway and the largest cash payoff ever for a sprint car race in the Eastern United States by claiming a $65,000 victory in 2019.

A former regular at the track before going on the road with the World of Outlaws Sprint Cars Series a few years prior, Marks scored the WoO victory by turning back challenges from both Brian Brown who took the lead for a time early and from Daryn Pittman on a last lap restart in the 40-lap affair.

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

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

Anthony Macri Wins $20,000 In 38th Running Of Selinsgrove Nace National Open

Garrett Bard gets 305 sprints to close season

9/26/20

Selinsgrove, Pa. – Anthony Macri of Dillsburg romped to the biggest win of his sprint car career on Saturday night at Selinsgrove Speedway, scoring $20,000 in the prestigious 38th annual Jim Nace Memorial National Open for 410 sprint cars.

The win was the second of the year for Macri at Selinsgrove Speedway aboard his No. 39 and his 10th overall of the season.

Macri started out the night by setting a new track record in qualifications, turning a lap of 15.544 seconds around the big half-mile, breaking the one-year old record of 15.694 set at last years event by Kerry Madsen.

In total, nine different drivers timed in under the old track record.

Macri then drew the pole for the 40-lap Nace National Open with Missouri’s Brian Brown lining up second.

When action began Brown beat Macri into the first turn but Macri swept around the outside to take control onto the backchute.

A blistering pace found the leader entering the backmarkers on just the fifth tour with Brown in tow and as he negotiated traffic, Brown was able to close a bit the leader’s advantage.

The first caution flag of the race appeared on lap 10 for a stopped Trenton Sheaffer, wiping out a 2.163 second lead built up by Macri.

Brown dove under Macri on the restart only to see Macri sweep around the top and again net control.

Macri again entered the rear of the field on lap 16 before the race was halted for a scheduled fuel stop at the halfway point, with Macri again ahead by 2.058 seconds before the stoppage.

Unfortunately, a rules infraction by Brown’s team under the scheduled stoppage would cost him the runner-up spot for the restart.

Brown was placed to the rear of the field for the return to action but instead he withdrew from the event.

This placed Freddie Rahmer on Macri’s tail for the restart but Macri got away when green replaced the yellow before again entering the rear of the field with 12 laps to go.

Rahmer tried to keep Macri close as they raced through traffic but to no avail and by the time a final caution flag appeared with just four laps to go, the leader had amassed a 3.994 second lead.

The yellow flag appeared for a stopped Brent Marks who was running fourth before blowing a tire.

Rahmer tried a low move into the first corner when action returned but Macri again got away, this time to take the win by 3.031 seconds during the final two miles.

Rahmer finished second in the race for the third year in a row aboard his father’s No. 51.

Sixth starter Dylan Cisney rode home a stout third followed by Lance Dewease and Brock Zearfoss.

Sixth through 10th went to Danny Dietrich, Brian Montieth, a rebounding Marks, Blane Heimbach and defending event champion Logan Wagner.

Montieth scored the Hard Charger award worth $400 after starting 13th in the field.

Heats went to Brown, TJ Stutts and Zearfoss with Steve Buckwalter scoring the last chance race.

Macri became the 20th different winner of the Selinsgrove Open in 38 years.

Garrett Bard would lead all 20 laps of the 305 sprint main to close out the night and the season at the track.

Bard blasted to the win from the pole although 10th starter Derek Hauck came to the front to challenge.

Hauck blasted across the bottom lane in the third and fourth turns as the pair headed to the checkers but instead he came up just shy by .312 seconds.

Ken Duke Jr. finished third in the race followed by Doug Dodson and Jaremi Hanson.

Sixth through 10th went to Dominic Melair, Mikell McGhee, Austin Grabey, Kassidy Kreitz and Cruz Kepner.

Austin Grabey was awarded Hard Charger laurels after advancing 16 spots in the field.

Heats went to Jared Zionkowski, Devin Adams, Dodson and Duke with the consolation going to McGhee.

The win was the third of the year by Bard at the Snyder County oval.

Selinsgrove Speedway will open the 2021 season with combined competition for modified stock cars on Saturday afternoon, March 20 before returning with an afternoon program featuring the 410 sprint cars one week later on Saturday, March 27.

Saturday, October 24 Monster Trucks promoted by Renegade Monster Truck Tour

Abbottstown, PA (September 26, 2020) – The final night of the 2020 Dirt Nationals featured the “Crowning of Champions” in each division. The Young Lions, Semi-Pro, Masters and Pro divisions all competed in 30-lap feature events to crown a champion.

First up was the Young Lions division which consists of drivers between the ages of 12-15 and is considered the most novice Legend Car division.

Daniel Adam, from North Carolina, and Florida-driver, Nikita Johnson made up the front row of the Young Lions feature event.

Adam and Johnson raced side by side into turn 1 with Johnson coming out of turn 2 with the lead. Tommie Quenzer, the national point leader in the division, settled into third as Adam stayed with Johnson to battle for the lead.

Johnson, Adam and Quenzer were pulling away from the rest of the field as Taylor

Adam was searching for a way around Johnson for the lead and got his nose under Johnson in turn 4 on lap 3 but couldn’t make the pass. The following lap he looked to the outside, again to no avail.

Johnson and Adam raced door to door down the back stretch on lap 5 with Johnson once again holding onto the lead.

Johnson’s teammate, Jaiden Reyna who had fallen back to seventh after starting fourth, made his way back to fourth on lap 8.

As Johnson and Adam pulled away from third place Quenzer, the battle for the lead didn’t cool down. Adam was still searching the track for a way around Johnson for the top spot.

The two leaders raced side by side down the front stretch on lap 11 with Adam finally making the pass for the lead coming out of turn 2.

Reyna was working on Quenzer for third at the halfway point of the race and made the pass coming out of turn 4.

Adam made contact with the wall on the backstretch on lap 15 allowing Johnson to take the lead back.

Reyna was reeling in Adam and Johnson and made it a three-car battle for the lead on lap 17. Adam and Reyna both got by Johnson in turn 4 on lap 18. Reyna took the lead at the line on lap 20. Adam continued to battle for the lead with Adam taking back the top spot on the following lap.

The first caution and only caution of the race came on lap 22 for Jonathan Robinson whose car was on fire.

Adam led Reyna, Johnson, Quenzer and Payton Jones to the cone for the single-file restart. Reyna got a great run to the cone nearly causing a pile-up, but he was able to pull back just in time to avert disaster.

Reyna got another great run down the back stretch and was on Adam' bumper. Adam got high in turn 4 allowing both Reyna and Johnson to get by.

Reyna beat his teammate, Johnson to the checkered flag by .267 seconds for the win. Adam crossed the line third and Quenzer finished fourth. Jones rounded out the top five.

Landon Lewis Edges Out Teammate in Photo Finish for Semi-Pro Championship

Teammates Billy Workman Jr. and Landon Lewis shared the front row of the Semi-Pro main event. The two raced side by side when the green flag dropped with Workman having the slight advantage into turn 1. Ohio-driver, Steven Partin, made it a three-way battle for the lead as Alex Robinson sat back and watched the battle in fourth.

Partin looked to the inside of Lewis to take second on lap 5. Lewis then got out of shape falling back to fifth.

The first caution came on lap 7 when Kevin Oliver got spun around in turn 4. It was Oliver’s second time racing on dirt in his career.

Workman led Partin, Robinson, Stephen Wurtzer and Lewis to the cone for the single-file restart. The yellow flag flew again on the restart when Oliver lost his hood. Despite the loss of his hood Oliver was permitted to keep running. Yet another caution came on the following restart when Cory Phillips stopped in turn 3.

On the next attempt to go green Lewis was racing door to door with Wurtzer for fourth and took the spot on lap 9.

Partin was all over Workman for the lead when the yellow came out on lap 10. Oliver continued to have issues with turn 4.

Joseph Sanoske had hit the cone on the previous restart sending him back two spots when the field lined up yet again.

Workman paced the field ahead of Partin, Robinson, Lewis and Wurtzer.

Lewis drove under Robinson for third on lap 11 as the race for the lead between Workman and Partin continued.

The leaders raced door to door at the line on lap 13 with Workman having the slight advantage.

The yellow flag flew on lap 14 for Joseph Sanoske who stopped in turn 4 after contact with Aaron Updegraff.

The top five for the restart were Workman, Partin, Lewis, Robinson and Jacob Owens.

The caution came again on the restart when Seth Kearchner, Owens, Josh Sanoske and Ryan Shabram piled up in turn 4. The four-car pile-up was a reaction to Partin getting sideways in turn 4. Partin kept the #51 moving keeping his second place spot for the restart.

Lewis was on Partin's bumper for second and Robinson and Wurtzer battled door to door for fourth.

Jorjie Sweger got by Wurtzer and moved into fourth down the back stretch on lap 16. Wurtzer wanted the spot back but the caution came out again on lap 17 before he could make the pass. The yellow was for Quinn Trimmer who spun out in turn 2. Parker Jones also came to a stop in turn 1.

Ron Little and Joseph Sanoske got together coming out of turn 4 on the restart bringing out another caution.

Nate Tretow entered the top five from his eighteenth starting spot, as Sweger and Lewis battled in front of him for third. Sweger fell back sending Tretow to work on her for the fourth spot.

Oliver brought out his third and final caution on lap 21 when he spun out in turn 2.

Workman led Partin, Lewis, Sweger and Tretow for the restart.

Sweger and Tretow were door to door again at the line. The two continued to battle down the back stretch. Contact was made sending Tretow for a wild ride into turn 3 bringing out the red flag lap 22.

Sweger was sent to the rear for the restart after officials reviewed the incident.

Chris Transeau restarted fifth behind Workman, Partin, Lewis and Wurtzer. Transeau started the race in twenty-second after qualifying through his consy.

Lewis stuck his nose under Partin in turn 1 for second on lap 26 but Partin held the spot. Later that lap Lewis edged Partin at the line for the runner-up position.

The final caution of the race came on lap 29 when Cody Atland and Tyler Garretson got together in turn 4.

The field lined up for a green, white, checkered finish behind Workman, Lewis, Partin Wurtzer and Transeau. Lewis looked to the inside of Workman on the restart and battled for the lead the entire white flag lap.

Lewis beat his teammate, Workman to the checkered flag by .001 seconds in an exciting photo finish. Partin held on to finish third and Wurtzer crossed the line fourth. Transeau completed the top five.

Joey Clanton Makes Triumphant Return with Masters Victory

The Masters division features drivers 40 years old. The Dirt Nationals grouped the Golden Masters, drivers over 50, with the Masters for the event.

After nearly three decades away from the wheel of a Legend Car, Joey Clanton lined up on the pole for the Masters feature event. Central PA Legend regular, Travis Perry, lined up second.

Perry stayed with Clanton into turn 1 and took the lead coming out of turn 2.

Clanton was left to hold of Scott Houdeshell who was challenging him for the runner-up spot.

The yellow flag flew on lap 3 when Scott Spidle, Dwyane Holder and Choya Young got together in turns 3 and 4.

Perry led Clanton, Houdeshell, Blaine Leppo and John Gutman for the single-file restart.

Clanton was able to get a nose under Perry coming out of the turns, but it wasn’t enough to make a move for the lead.

On lap 6 Clanton had enough momentum out of turn 2 to take the top spot. Perry stayed close and was on his bumper wanting the position back.

Clanton was pulling away from Perry and the field when the yellow came out on lap 13 for debris in turn 4.

The top five for the restart were Clanton, Perry, Houdeshell, Leppo and Joe Adam.

Adam got under Leppo down the back stretch but couldn’t make the pass. Perry continued to challenge Clanton for the lead.

Adam got by Leppo on lap 17 for fourth. The yellow flag flew again on lap 19 when Rob Blizzard got turned around in turns 3 and 4.

Clanton pulled away down the back stretch as Perry held off a charge from Houdeshell for second.

Top 4 were evenly spaced ahead of Leppo as he held off Gutman and Dawson in a three-car battle for fifth.

Perry used lapped traffic to take the lead back going into turn 3 on lap 25. A three-car battle for the lead between Perry, Clanton and Houdeshell was brewing when the caution came out on lap 27 for Joseph Plunkett in turn 4.

Perry was doing whatever he could to hold off Clanton, but Joey took the lead back at the line with one lap to go.

In the second photo finish of the night Clanton beat Perry to the checkered flag for the win. Houdeshell held on to finish third and Adam crossed the line fourth. Dawson rounded out the top five.

Central PA Legend Driver Jeremy Ott Best in Pro Division

Central Pennsylvania driver, Jeremey Ott shared the front row of the Pro feature with North Carolina-native, Jake Tretow.

Tretow took the lead going in to turn 1 but the caution came out before a lap was in the book for Chuck Dell and Nathan Skaggs who got together in turn 2.

The field lined up for a complete restart. Tretow shot out to the lead once again with Eddie Daniels into second and Ott running third.

Daniels got out of shape challenging Tretow for the lead allowing Ott to take second.

Casey Traxler brought out the yellow flag on lap 3 when he got spun around in turn 4.

Tretow paced the field ahead of Ott, Daniels, Joe Ryan Osborne and Christopher Clanton for the restart.

Daniels wanted second back form Ott on the restart, but he also had to hold off a determined Osborne behind him.

Ott was all over Tretow’s bumper with a good run out of turn 2 but it still wasn’t enough to make a pass for the lead.

Bill Diehl used the outside of turn 4 to get by Osborne for fourth. Clanton followed sending Osborne back to the sixth spot.

Tretow and Ott were still running bumper to bumper when the yellow flag came out on lap 14 for debris in turns 3 and 4.

Daniels lined up third for the restart but was soon black flagged for his rear bumper as it was dragging behind the car.

Tretow and Ott raced door to door on lap 18 with Ott on the inside and Tretow holding on to the lead.

Ott was still using the inside to his advantage and made the pass for the lead coming out of turn 4 on lap 22.

Tretow stayed close and was on Ott's bumper wanting the lead back when a caution came on lap 23. Daniels finally lost his bumper and was sent to the pits ending his night.

Ott led Tretow, Clanton, Diehl and Osborne to the cone for the single-file restart.

Tretow went to the inside of Ott in turns 1 and 2 to take the lead but Ott got him back at the line by a nose to maintain the top spot by .012 seconds.

Casey Traxler spun out in turn 4 bringing out the caution.

Tretow went to the inside once again but Ott held him off in the turns. Clanton entered the picture challenging Tretow for second.

The final caution came on lap 26 when Chuck Dell stopped in turn 3 after a billow of smoke came from the car.

Tretow tried the bottom again on the restart but Ott was able to pull away. Clanton got under Tretow in turns 1 and 2 for second and then got sideways in the final turn of the race collecting Steve Duderstadt.

Ott crossed the line 1.002 ahead of Osborne who made it through the turn 4 melee to finish second. Clanton crossed the line third and Diehl was fourth. Travis McClelland completed the top five.

Wyatt Hinkle Scores 358 Sprint Victory

With only two races for the 358 sprints left on the schedule, including Saturday night, only 65 points separated the top three in the standings, Todd Rittenhouse Jr., Brett Wanner and Cody Fletcher.

Cameron Burke and Jordan Strickler lined up on the front row of the 20-lap feature event. Strickler took the lead at the green flag with Travis Scott up to second from his fourth starting spot. The red flag came out before a lap was completed when Steven Kisamore got upside down after contact with Mason Chaney who got sideways going into turn 1.

As Scott slowed for the red in turn 3 pole-sitter Burke drove up over the tire of Scott and flipped into turn 3.

Chaney and Scott were both able to rejoin the field for the complete restart. Strickler and Jeff Paulson shared the front row for the restart with Wyatt Hinkle and Rittenhouse lined up behind them.

Transeau was on Sweger's bumper for second but Sweger still had her site set on the lead. Wurtzer, Sweger and Transeau battled for the lead as the laps wound down with Sweger finally taking the top spot on lap 16 right before the caution came out for Trimmer.

Sweger held the lead on the restart and drove to her first win of 2020 over Wurtzer, Transeau, Carbaugh and Chuck Dell.

Abbottstown, PA (September 25, 2020) –

Garrett Bard Charges to 305 Victory

Garret Bard lined up fourth for the 20-lap feature on Friday night. Bard charged to the front early in the race to complete the sweep of the 305 feature events at Lincoln in 2020. Bard also won in the 305 sprint series’ visit to the track in July. Bard’s win on Friday was his eighth with the PASS series this year.

Ken Duke and Devin Adams shared the front row for the feature event with Dave Grubell and Bard lined up in row 2.

Duke led the field into turn 1 with Adams going to the high side to challenge Duke for the lead. Duke held the top spot while Bard moved his way to third.

Bard used the outside of turns 1 and 2 to get by Adams for the second spot.

The yellow flag flew on lap 2 for Dave Wickham and Andrew Boyer who got together at the end of the front stretch.

Duke led Bard, Adams, Grubell and Justin Mills to the cone for the restart.

Bard went to the top in turn 1 and Duke slid up in turn 2 to take away his line. Bard dove into turn 3 to take lead at the line right before the red came out on lap 3. Jake Frye jumped the cushion and got upside down in turns 3 and 4.

This time Bard paced the field ahead of Duke, Adams, Grubell and Mills for the restart.

Bard shot out to a commanding lead on the restart. Mills got by Grubell for fourth but Grubell took the spot back at the line on lap 4. The two continued to battle with Mills solidly taking the position on lap 5.

Bard used the high line around the track as he caught the tail end of the field with a 1.5 second lead.

Adams found some speed and was all over Duke for second. The two raced side by side into turn 3 on lap 10 with Adams having the slight advantage at the line.

Adams went to work tracking down Bard for the lead in lapped traffic. Adams closed the gap in lapped traffic with 5 laps to go.

Bard forced to the bottom as he worked through lapped traffic allowing Adams to gain some ground. Bard was able to put a lapped car between him and Adams to create some distance but Adams made quick work of it.

Adams made one last effort for the lead in turns 3 and 4 and raced with Bard to the checkered flag down the front stretch. Bard beat Adams to the line by .137 seconds. Duke finished third and Mills crossed the line fourth. Darek Hauck completed the top five.

305 Sprint heat races were won by Garrett Bard, Ken Duke Jr. and Jake Frye.

Freddie Rahmer Wins Third Of Williams Grove Season Friday,

Derek Locke Claims 358 Sprint Main And 2020 Track Title

9/25/20

Mechanicsburg – Freddie Rahmer won his third sprint car feature of the season at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night in the National Open Tune Up race and in doing so the Salfordville speedster expanded his lead in the season-long point standings with just two races to go in the season.

In the 358 sprint main, Derek Locke of Carlisle drove by point challenger Kevin Nouse to score the win and the track title in the division. The victory was also his third of the season at the track.

The 25-lap 410 sprint car main would go non-stop with Rahmer leading flag to flag.

On the opening lap with Rahmer at the helm, TJ Stutts, Anthony Macri and Robbie Kendall raced three-wide through the second corner for the second spot with Kendall coming away with the position.

Kendall would then chase Rahmer as he drew up on the rear of the field and by lap nine the leaders had traffic running directly in front of them.

The high line was the lane of choice on this night and Rahmer refused to drop off of the cushion to get around traffic.

This allowed the front four of Rahmer, Kendall, Macri and Stutts to bunch up and pull within half a straight away of each other while all the pilots waited for someone to pull the trigger and drop to the bottom lane.

Rahmer finally put himself into traffic on the 12th tour, bulling his way into the back of the pack and it was then that Kendall made his first bid for control although Rahmer was up to the task.

With 11 laps to go Rahmer made contact with the backmarker of Tim Glatfelter at the flagstand as he raced to stay at the front.

Moments later Lance Dewease slowed and pulled pitside while racing inside the top ten after also dropping out of the dash earlier in the night.

Kendall took a second stab at the lead, more contentious this time on the 17th tour when he dipped under Rahmer in the third and fourth turns only to come up short as Rahmer continued to refuse to forsake his cushion line around the oval.

After that Rahmer began to snake his way through the field and get away from Kendall as Anthony Macri and Brent Marks made moved in to overtake him.

In the end Rahmer took the win by 1.104 seconds over Macri, Marks, Kendall and Brian Montieth.

Sixth through 10th went to Stutts, Brian Brown, Matt Campbell, Danny Dietrich and Kyle Reinhardt.

With three laps to go, Stutts nearly spun on the turn two cushion but recovered while Danny Dietrich did spin to avoid direct contact before continuing on. At the time, both drivers were vying for a top-five finish.

Heats went to Rahmer, Dewease and Macri with Jeff Halligan scoring the consolation and Rahmer winning the dash to earn the pole for the main event.

Stutts set fast time with a lap of 16.629 seconds.

Kevin Nouse took the lead at the start of the 358 sprint main with the track title awaiting at the end of the 20-lap distance.

Derek Locke started the race in third and watched as Nouse took the lead when action began.

The red flag appeared with two laps recorded for a six-car pile up in the second turn.

When action resumed Locke lined up second and immediately went to work on Nouse for the lead.

He worked either side of the speedway with smooth precision to draw even with Nouse more than once before finally driving by with an outside move in the second turn on lap six.

Once at the front, Locke drove away to the third oval win of his career and of the season while also wrapping up the 2020 track title over Nouse.

Nouse was second in the race followed by Brett Wanner, Steve Owings and Alyson Dietz.

Heats went to Dietz, Nouse and Locke with the last chance race going to Scott Fisher.

The Jim Nace Memorial National Open At Selinsgrove Speedway

Prestigious Oval Event Brings 37 Years Of History Into 38th Running Saturday

9/20/20

Selinsgrove, Pa – This Saturday’s 38th annual Icon Legacy Homes Jim Nace Memorial National Open at Selinsgrove Speedway will find the race entering its fifth different decade since beginning in 1983.

Along the way the prestigious Selinsgrove event has seen a total of 19 different drivers win the contest since the late Maynard Yingst of Linglestown swept the first three in a row in 1983, 1984 and in 1985.

But the now fall classic at Selinsgrove Speedway was originally a summer sizzler with the first four taking place in either June or July.

It wasn’t until 1987 when Ohio’s Dave Blaney got the win that the race was moved into the autumn of the year, taking place on October 3 before it settled into September in 1989 as Midwestern star Doug Wolfgang scored a 75-lap United Sprint Association sanctioned Open worth over $51,000.

The event domination of Fred Rahmer took center stage during the second half of the 1990s as the Salfordville speedster scored five of six races between 1995 and 2000.

In fact, to date no other driver has been as successful in the Selinsgrove Nationals as the retired Rahmer.

His closest pursuers on the all-time Open win list are the late Greg Hodnett and retiree Todd Shaffer, both of whom each counted four checkered flags in the race.

Following the untimely death of five-time Selinsgrove Speedway sprint car track titlist Jim Nace in 2009, the race format was expanded into two segments in 2010 and was now run as the Jim Nace Memorial National Open.

The race used the twin segment format for a total of three years before again becoming a single event in 2013.

Interestingly enough, Thompsontown’s Nace only ever recorded one top-five finish in the Open and never scored the big payday but his Selinsgrove record of five track titles and 46 super sprint car wins certainly cements him as the affair’s namesake.

The Jim Nace Memorial National Open was expanded financially in 2019 to post $20,000 to the winner of a 40-lap contest, billed as the biggest unsanctioned sprint car payday to be posted in the state of Pennsylvania and in the East.

Over the years the most successful drivers in the race that haven’t been able to score a win include four-time Open top-five finishers Paul Lotier and Crish Eash along with three-time top-fivers Randy Wolfe, Joey Borich, Sean Michael, TJ Stutts, Mark Smith and Brent Marks.

On the car owner side of the event, no entry has been driven to National Open victory more than the famed Hamilton Motorsports No. 77 machine, having made the victory lane trip some six times.

Keith Kauffman scored for owner Al Hamilton in 1988 with Lance Dewease taking the W in 2002 while Fred Rahmer sandwiched four wins in between.

Bob Stewart, proprietor of the No. 12 Apple Motorsports sprinter, owns four race triumphs with one belonging to Rahmer, two to Hodnett and one to Chad Layton in 2006.

Three time ownership winners have been Maynard Yingst, Gary and Patty Beam and Zane Highlands.

Saturday’s $20,000 to win 38th annual Jim Nace Memorial National Open gets underway at 7 pm. The race carries a raindate of Sunday, September 27 at 6 pm.

Saturday gates open at 4:30 pm.

Adult general admission for the season finale is set at $30 with students ages 12- 17 priced at $15. Kids ages 11 and under are always admitted for FREE at Selinsgrove Speedway.

Reserved seats can be purchased at an additional price of $2 for all ages. Pit admission is set at $40.

Advanced general admission tickets and reserved seats are available by emailing contact information to: promoter@selinsgrovespeedway.com.

Abbottstown, PA (September 19, 2020) – Kyle Larson’s 39th win of the 2020 season came on Saturday night in the $20,000 to win Dirt Classic 7 at Lincoln Speedway. Larson added his name to the prestigious list of Dirt Classic champions that includes Stevie Smith, Lance Dewease, Tim Shaffer, and Brian Montieth.

The Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions 39th visit to Lincoln Speedway brought a solid field of 53-cars to vie for a spot in the $20,000 to win, $1,000 to start 40-lap feature.

Following the unique format of the Dirt Classic, that includes points for time trials and two rounds of heats, Kyle Larson lined up on the pole having the highest point total of the night. Rico Abreu was second and the lone member of the PA Posse in the top five was Anthony Macri who lined up third.

Larson held the lead going into turn 1 as he went to the bottom and Rico went high.

Brian Brown bobbled and fell off the pace and Brandon Rahmer pulled off the track, but the green flag stayed out.

Abreu got into the wall in turn 4 allowing Macri to get by for second on lap 2. Aaron Reutzel also capitalized on Abreu’s mishap getting by him to move into third.

Brent Marks used a slider in turn 2 to take fourth from Rico on lap 6.

As Larson approached lapped traffic on lap 10 the tail end of the field was battling three wide for position.

Reutzel was closing in on Macri for second as Marks held off a charge from his cousin, Brock Zearfoss for fourth. Zearfoss took the spot on lap 14.

Larson held a 2.326 second lead over Marci as they worked through lapped traffic at the half-way point.

The first caution of the race came on lap 25 for Danny Dietrich who got spun around in turn 4. While the yellow was still out, Tim Glatfelter came to a stop on the front stretch with a flat front tire.

Larson led Macri, Reutzel, Zearfoss and Marks to the cone for the single-file restart. With the leaders mostly using the bottom line around the track Cory Eliason went to the top to pass cars on the restart, driving from tenth to eighth in one lap. Marks used the top as well to get by Zearfoss and take back the fourth spot.

The yellow flag flew again on lap 30 when Chad Trout, who had set quick time in time trials, got into the inside wall in turn 2. The caution with 10 laps to go erased a 3.172 second lead for Larson.

Once again Larson paced the field for the restart. Reutzel drove under Macri in turns 1 and 2 to take second on the restart. Marks was right there to challenge Macri for third and made the pass.

Abreu made his way back into the top five after getting by Zearfoss.

The red flag flew on lap 34 when Paul McMahan and Dietrich got together in turn 3 sending Dietrich on a wild ride.

Larson led Reutzel, Marks, Macri and Abreu for the final restart of the race with six laps to go.

Eliason used the top once again on the restart, this time to take sixth from Zearfoss. Marks also went high trying to close the gap on Reutzel.

Larson got his fourteenth All Star win of the season beating Reutzel to the checkered flag by 3.165 seconds. Marks crossed the line third and Abreu was fourth. Macri held on to finish fifth.

This Friday and Saturday, September 25 & 26, Lincoln Speedway is hosting the Dirt Nationals for the Central PA Legends.

Reutzel Gets Third Grove Win In All Stars Gunn Memorial Dirt Classic Qualifier

Hanson claims 305s

9/18/20

Mechanicsburg – All Stars point leader Aaron Reutzel of Clute, Texas, scored the $5,000 victory in the Jack Gunn Memorial Dirt Classic Qualifier for sprint cars on Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway.

Reutzel took the lead from Gio Scelzi one lap shy of the halfway point in the 30-lap main event to notch his third career victory at the famed oval where he became the first-ever All Stars circuit regular to win a sanctioned event last season.

With the win Reutzel continues to be the only All Stars driver to ever win at the track after what was the 40th outing for the circuit at Williams Grove on Friday night.

Fresno, California’s Gio Scelzi started second in the field and nabbed the lead with a massive slider over polesitter Brian Brown on the initial green when the field roared into the first corner.

Scelzi was then off and running with the lead as Brown raced second until lap six when fourth starter Reutzel made his first bid for the runner up spot with an attempted slider in the first and second turns.

However Brown rallied back to reclaim the spot only to again fall victim two laps later and this time Reutzel made the move stick.

Leader Scelzi entered the rear of the field on lap 10 of the contest and then lost significant ground to Reutzel on lap 13 when he lost the handle on the cushion in turn two and nearly spun out.

This allowed Reutzel to close drastically before he was able to drive under Scelzi for control on lap 14.

With Scelzi on the cushion, Reutzel took the low line through the first and second turns and then drag raced Scelzi onto the backstretch to emerge with control.

Once Reutzel was at the front, attention shifted to the battle for third between Brown and fifth starter Kyle Larson.

The pair raced hard for the spot with Larson working the top before he took the position only to see Brown work his magic and drive back by with 12 laps to go.

Larson refused to give up his runs on the high side until late in the race, continuing to rally for third to no avail.

A lone caution flag with two laps to go settled the non-stop pace when fifth runner Zeb Wise slowed in the second corner.

Reutzel walked off on the restart for the win by 1.514 seconds over Scelzi.

Brown blew a right rear on the final circuit, falling off of the pace.

Larson rode home third followed by Paul McMahan and Brent Marks.

Sixth through 10th went to Anthony Macri, Danny Dietrich, Kerry Madsen, Freddie Rahmer and Dylan Cisney.

The win was Reutzel’s 10th on the All Stars tour this season and his 14th overall in 2020 competition.

“Our car was phenomenal tonight,” Reutzel said.

“I could blow in on the top, move through the middle and run the bottom.”

Heats went to Brown, Wise, McMahan and Reutzel with twin dashes going to Brown and Scelzi.

Chat Trout won the B Main.

Scelzi set quick time over the field with a lap of 16.742 seconds.

Jaremi Hanson started on the pole and won the 20-lap 305 sprint main to close the night.

Eighth starter Ken Duke Jr. rode home second followed by John Walp, Derek Hauck and Dave Brown Jr.

Heats went to Jake McLain, Jared Zienkoaski, Kirsten Hess and Duke with twin consolations going to Dominic Melair and Landon Price.

Feature Finishes, 9/18/20:

LINCOLN SPEEDWAY

Abbottstown, PA

KYLE LARSON BACK IN VICTORY LANE WITH $6,900 WELDON STERNER WIN

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Saturday, September 19 (7:00pm) ALL STAR CIRCUIT OF CHAMPIONS | $20,000 to WIN DIRT CLASSIC VII for 410 Sprints (TT) [rain date: Sun, Sept. 20]

Thursday, September 24 (6:00pm) Open practice for all divisions

Friday, September 25 (6:00pm) DIRT NATIONALS for Central PA Legends + 305 Sprints

Saturday, September 26 (6:00pm) DIRT NATIONALS for Central PA Legends + 358 Sprints

Abbottstown, PA (September 16, 2020) – Kyle Larson was shut out of victory lane at Lincoln earlier in the year when he made the trip to Central PA for Speedweek. On Wednesday night Larson was back on top of his short-track game when he wired the field in the 33-lap Weldon Sterner Memorial feature to score a $6,900 payday. Larson’s win also earned him a guaranteed starting spot in Saturday’s Dirt Classic VII.

Larson shared the front row with pole-sitter Rico Abreu. With invaders making up the front row, the PA Posse was represented by Anthony Macri and TJ Stutts in row two for the start of the main event.

When the green flag flew Larson and Abreu were racing door to door with Larson having the slight advantage at the flag stand. Larson held on to the lead with Abreu in second, Stutts in third, Lance Dewease in fourth and Macri in fifth.

The first caution of the race came on lap 2 when Brian Brown came to a stop on the front stretch. Brian Montieth, who was sporting the Sterner Cement #69 wing for the night’s memorial race, had just passed Macri to enter into the top five when the yellow came out, sending him back to sixth for the restart.

Larson paced the field ahead of Abreu, Stutts, Dewease and Macri for the single-file restart. Larson and Abreu both opted to run the top in turns 1 and 2 while Dewease used the bottom to get by Stutts for third.

The yellow came out again on lap 4 when Brian Montieth got turned around in turn 4. Montieth nearly got upside-down with a front right flat tire. Montieth’s team changed the tire and he rejoined the field for the restart.

The running order of the top five for the restart was Larson, Abreu, Dewease, Stutts and Macri.

The All Star Circuit of Champion point leader, Aaron Reutzel, was a rocket on the restart, getting by Macri on the top of turn 4 for fifth and then beating Stutts to the line to take fourth. Reutzel went to work on reeling in Dewease.

Larson entered lapped traffic on lap 9 and it wasn’t long before he was in heavy traffic allowing Abreu to close in.

After making his way through the heavy traffic Larson pulled away from Abreu. While Larson and Abreu were running the top, Dewease was using the bottom line around the track to reel in Rico. Abreu tried to take Dewease’s line away by going to the bottom in turn 1 on lap 20, but Abreu’s car slid up the track allowing Dewease to make the pass for second.

Danny Dietrich brought out the caution on lap 23 when he got turned around in turn 1. Dietrich rejoined the field.

Larson went high and Dewease opted to go low into turn 1 on the restart. Abreu used the top to close in on Dewease as Macri and Stutts battled for fifth.

Another caution came on lap 29 when Ian Madsen got into the wall in turn 2.

Larson led Dewease, Abreu, Reutzel and Stutts to the cone for the final restart of the race.

Once again Larson went high and Dewease went low. Rico got by Dewease using the top of the track. Lance went to the top to hold off a late race charge from Reutzel.

Larson took the checkered flag .746 seconds ahead of Abreu. Dewease finished third and Reutzel crossed the line fourth. Macri held off Stutts for a fifth place finish.

Dewease Earns Record Seventh Tuscarora 50 Win in Front of Record Crowd at Port Royal Speedway

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Penn. (Sept. 12, 2020) In the world of sports, the number seven is entrenched with greatness.

Richard Petty, Dale Earnhardt and Jimmie Johnson all won seven championships to cement their legacy as NASCAR's greatest drivers.

In football, seven is what everyone is aiming for in terms of scoring touchdowns. In baseball and basketball, game seven is when all the chips are on the line and the stars come out and legends are made.

On Saturday night, Lance Dewease further entrenched his name in the history books of sprint car racing and Port Royal Speedway as he bested Anthony Macri and Dylan Cisney and the Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 to pick up his record breaking seventh Tuscarora 50 presented by Packer's Concessions and Ramsey's Car Wash of Mifflintown title at the Juniata County oval.

Even more impressive, Dewease has now won Tuscarora 50 titles in four separate decades (90's, 00's, 2010's and 2020). Oh yea, the win was worth an all-time high $53,000 plus $1275 in lap money.

"Honestly, I always just wanted to race and I never dreamed of winning seven or anything really," said Dewease. "I've had some great teams over the years and some great wins, but this team here is so much fun and this is just really cool."

Dewease and Rico Abreu led the field to the green flag and it was Dewease jumping out to the early lead. Abreu was right on his tail at the flagstand. Two laps later Macri, who started sixth, got by TJ Stutts for third.

Two laps later Stutts slowed on the track to bring out the first caution with motor issues. Meanwhile Kyle Larson, who started 22nd on the grid, was already up to 11th. When the field went back to green-flag action Larson broke inside the top-10, but Dewease was in command up front.

Over the next seven laps, Abreu kept Dewease within striking distance and he was slowly reeling in the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame driver. He tried on lap 13 to slide him for the lead entering turn 1 and he briefly held the lead, but Dewease powered back under him down the backstretch.

Buried heavy a lapped traffic, five laps later, Abreu once again reeled in the leader and this time he used a head of steam off the outside of turn three and four to lead lap 19.

"It was getting interesting there in lap traffic and I think I was maybe a little too relaxed," said Dewease. "He got by me there and I was definitely a little upset with myself, but I wasn't about to push it that early in the race."

Abreu didn’t have a lot of time to open up a lead though as the caution flew one lap later when Brian Brown came to a stop on the backstretch. Abreu led the next five laps with limited movement throughout the field before a competition yellow flew at halfway that allowed teams to make adjustments and fuel up.

Once the field went back to green flag action, Abreu jumped out to the lead and by lap 30 he held nearly a 1.0 second advantage. Dewease was searching around the speedway for a way to make up ground and by lap 37 he had cut the distance slightly.

Meanwhile, Larson was running in seventh and newly crowned track champion Logan Wagner was running in 9th from his 19th starting spot.

Fan's dreams for a late race battle between Abreu and Dewease were shattered though on lap 37 when Abreu slowed on the backstretch with mechanical issues to hand the lead back to Dewease.

"We made a few changes there at the halfway point and I think we were going to have something for him anyways, but it's a shame we didn’t get to find out," said Dewease. "Rico is a class act and you hate to see that for him, but I wasn't going to be upset about leading the race as 50 laps is the name of the game."

Dewease commanded the field on the restart and jumped out to a 1.5 second advantage by lap 40, Meanwhile Macri and Cisney were putting on a show behind him for the second position as the two traded sliders at both ends of the track.

One lap later it was last year's Tuscarora 50 winner, Aaron Reutzel, slowing with rear end damage after contact with the outside guardrail to bring out the caution. Meanwhile Larson had cracked the top five.

With everyone wondering if Yung Money had one last charge in him, Dewease jumped out to a 2.3 second advantage over the next five laps. Macri and Cisney continued to go after the second positon, with Macri finally clearing Cisney on lap 45. Larson moved into fourth as well.

Macri cut the distance in half over the final handful of laps, but Dewease was just too far ahead to catch and the Fayetteville, Pa. legend brought the record-setting crowd to it’s feet as he crossed the checkered flag on top for the second consecutive night.

Maxcri, Cisney, Larson and Thursday's winner Cory Eliason completed the top five while Wagner, Tyler Courtney, Spencer Bayston, Kerry Madsen and Freddie Rahmer made up the rest of the top- 10.

"Sometimes you have the best car and don't win and sometimes things fall your way and it seemed tonight it was just meant to be," said Dewease. "We haven't had a season up to our standards this year and it just seems we haven't been real good. I think people maybe underestimated us a bit and I this is just a really special night."

For Macri, he thought that he wasted too much time battling with Cisney for second and that if he'd cleared him earlier he may have had a shot.

"We were good all night, but I think I used up my stuff a bit trying to hold off Dylan," said Macri, who also earned $300 for setting quick time earlier in the night. "This is the second night in a row we're sitting here second to that 69k car, so maybe we're just a second-place car this weekend."\

Earlier in the night Lucas Wolfe picked up $2000 during a non-qualifier feature event that lasted 20 laps. Wolfe also earned a guaranteed spot in next years Tuscarora 50, which speedway official announced will once again be a three-day show in 2021 with an increased purse and feature the All Stars again.

Brett Michalski, Tyler Walton, Curt Stroup and Tyler Bear completed the top-five.

The top five for the restart were Bryan, Jim, Horst, Jones and Covert.

Once again Bryan pulled away from the field on the restart. Jones and Horst raced door to door down the back stretch for third.

Covert joined the battle for third making it a three-car battle at the line on lap 13. Jones got by Horst at the line to take third. Two laps later Covert followed taking fourth from Horst.

Jones didn’t let Covert pull away and the two raced side by side for position allowing Dylan Yoder to catch them. Yoder, who started fifteenth in the main event, got by Jones for fourth on lap 19.

Covert got by Jim for second with 10 laps to go. Jim hit the wall and lost some ground falling to fifth but the caution came out allowing Jim to salvage his third place spot.

Pole-sitter Horst pulled in right before the yellow. The caution on lap 21 was for Kyle Martin.

Covert stayed with Bryan going into turn 1 on the restart while Jim, Jones and Yoder battled for third. Jones got the spot by a nose over Jim at the line on lap 26 as the two were door to door.

Bernheisel got to the checkered flag 1.250 seconds ahead of Covert. Jones held on to finish third and Knaub crossed the line fourth. Jim salvaged a fifth place finish.

Jim Bernheisel, Bernie Beard and Chad Myers won the super late model heat races.

Brett Wanner Wins and Claims Summer Series Championship

Not only did Brett Wanner win his second feature event of the season at Lincoln on Saturday night, with the win Wanner also claimed the 358 Sprint Summer Series Championship.

Wanner shared the front row with Dylan Norris for the 25-lap feature. Wanner led the field into turn 1. Norris opted for the low line through the turns to hold onto second.

Fourth-place starter, Cameron Burke slowed after making contact with Cody Fletcher in turn 4. Burke was able to make it off the track before the yellow flag flew.

Shortly after Burke exited the track the caution did come out on lap 3 for a four-car pile up in turns 3 and 4. Zane Rudisill, CJ Tracy, Travis Scott and Jordan Strikler were involved. All four cars rejoined the field.

Wanner paced the field ahead of Norris, Fletcher, Jordan Givler and Chad Criswell for the restart.

Norris continued to use the bottom line around the track to stick with Wanner who was running the high line. Givler was working on Fletcher for third when the yellow came out again on lap 6. Kyle Rohrbaugh ended up nosed into the inside wall on the back stretch.

Givler made the pass for third before the caution came out. The top five for the restart were Wanner, Norris, Givler, Fletcher and Criswell.

Going into Saturday night’s feature, Todd Rittenhouse Jr. had a 65 point advantage over Fletcher in the season point standings for first. Fletcher fell off the pace on lap 7 bringing out the caution. Not what Fletcher wanted to have happen with the point battle so tight with only two races remaining after Saturday.

With the loss of Fletcher, Steve Owings made his way into the top 5 for the restart.

Chris Frank had his eyes set on getting into the top 5 and battled side by side with Owings at the line on lap 8. Owings edged out Frank by inches to hold onto fifth.

The point battle took another interesting turn when Todd Rittenhouse Jr. brought out the red flag on lap 11. Rittenhouse took a wild ride in turns 3 and 4.

Criswell battled Givler for third down the front stretch on the restart as Wanner drove away from the rest of the field.

Givler got away from Criswell’s challenge and used the top line around the track to hunt down Norris for second.

Norris was closing in on Wanner as the laps wound down. Dylan made a pass for the lead down the back stretch and the two crossed the line side by side on lap 23 with Norris having the advantage.

Wanner reclaimed the lead coming out of turn 4 with white flag waving and beat Norris back to the checkered flag by .186 seconds. Givler finished a close third and Criswell crossed the line fourth. Owings completed the top five.

358 Sprint heats were won by Brett Wanner, Dylan Norris, Jordan Givler and Cody Fletcher.

Scott Shaffer Best in Vintage Outlaw Series

Gene Wrightstone started on the pole of the 20-lap Vintage Outlaw Racing Series feature. Wrightstone led the field into turn 1 with Mark Hahn and Jeff Paulson in tow. Paulson got by Hahn for second and Mike Stofflet followed taking third.

Paulson caught Wrightstone and was challenging him for the lead when the caution came out on lap 4. Stofflet, who had been running third, got turned around in turn 2.

Paulson took a look to the inside of Wrightstone on the restart but couldn’t make the pass. Paulson took the lead down the back stretch on lap 6 right before the caution came out for Hahn. Hahn had been running third and got backwards in turn 4.

Scott Shaffer was closing in on Wrightstone for second as Paulson entered lapped traffic.

Shaffer got by Wrightstone and went to work reeling in Paulson. Shaffer got by Paulson for the lead on the back stretch as the two navigated lapped traffic.

After spinning out early, Stofflet had made his way back up through the field and into the top five. Stofflet got by Wrightstone for third on lap 15 as the two raced down the back stretch.

Lance Dewease Takes the Night Before the 50 With the All Star Circuit of Champions at Port Royal Speedway

Jeff Rine Wins Super Late Model Feature While Logan Wagner and Andy Haus Wrap Up Points Titles

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Penn. (Sept. 11, 2020)- Lance Dewease outdueled Anthony Macri and Kyle Larson to pick up the Night Before the 50 victory with the Ollie's Bargain Outlets All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1Friday night during the 166th Annual Juniata County Fair at the Port Royal Speedway.

The win was the 40th career All Star triumph for the Keystone state favorite and the 114th all-time victory for Dewease at the Juniata County oval. Courtesy of Ted Reitz, the triumph paid $6000 to win and leaves Dewease as favorite as he heads into Saturday night's $53,000 finale looking for his record seventh Tuscarora 50 title.

"We were really good all night. We needed that to get our confidence going as we havn't had the best of seasons up until now," said Dewease. "The race is 30 laps and we just wanted to get to the end. I knew if I could get to them they might slip up and I was just waiting my time for an opportunity."

Australian invader Kerry Madsen and Larson lined up on the front row for the 30-lap affair and Madsen pulled a slider on Larson entering turn one to go to the point. However, the former NASCAR star showed why he's been so successful at the speedway by ducking back under him to take the lead exiting turn four and led lap one.

Macri, who started third threaded the needle between Dewease and Madsen on the frontstretch the following lap. Dewease moved into third as well. One lap later the only caution of the night flew when Paul McMahan stopped on the backstretch.

As he has so many times already this season, Larson blasted out to a half straightaway lead following the restart. By lap 10, Dewease was all over Macri for the runner-up position and he was working the bottom of the speedway with perfection.

"Anthony has been so good here this year and he really knows how to get around this place up top," said Dewease. "I was trying a few things and he was pulling away form me so I knew I had to get back to the bottom and just be patient."

Lapped traffic entered the picture on lap 12 and that allowed both Macri and Dewease to start chipping away at Larson's advantage. With 15 laps to go, the top three were all under a blanket and Macri took his shot by throwing a slider entering turn three to briefly take the lead, but Larson again powered under to hold the lead heading to the flagstand.

Larson briefly went to the bottom of the track in an effort to protect his lead, but found that he was better up top and opened back up a near 1.0 second advantage two laps later. Macri again closed the distance on lap 18 and he tried the same move again in turn's three and four, which Larson held on by a nose to lead the lap.

With 10 laps to go, Macri tried again in turn one and two, but Larson again ducked under him coming down the backstretch to stay up front.

"I think as a driver if I had been a little smarter I might have held up a bit," said Macri. "He was right in my sights and I got a little excited and I think we needed to wait just a little bit."

With the leaders throwing haymakers at each other, Dewease saw his opportunity he'd been patiently waiting for. With all three podium drivers within a few car-lengths, Dewease made his move on lap 25 as he shot past Macri in turn's one and two and he slid under Larson entering turn three to take the lead coming off four.

"I actually thought Kyle was going to come down and take my momentum and he never did," said Dewease. "I don’t know if he expected me to make that move, but we got past him and that's an accomplishment in itself."

Dewease searched the track throughout the final five laps to find the best way around in clean air, but nobody was going to touch him as he cruised home to the checkered flag by a margin of 2.484 seconds.

"You know Kyle beat me once earlier this year and he waved at me when he passed me at Williams Grove," said Dewease. "I wasn't going to let that happen again. Those guys were both going really hard and you have to on a track like this. But I don’t get passed too often once I get the lead and here we are tonight."

Macri was able to get by Larson on the white flag lap to secure the second spot and believes he has a car capable of finishing one spot higher Saturday night.

"To run second to Lance and to finish ahead of Kyle, we are definitely doing something right," said Macri. "We'll do our homework a little and scratch our heads and see if we can be sitting one better tomorrow night."

Larson, Dylan Cisney and Rico Abreu made up the top five, while Madsen, Thursday's winner Cory Eliason, Brent Marks, Danny Dietrich and Ian Madesn filled out the top-10. Brock Zearfodss finished 11th and gained 15 positions to earn the $500 hard charger courtesy of Valley Supply Inc.

Logan Wagner finished 16th to lock up his third consecutive Weikert's Livestock 410 Sprint Car championship at the speedway as well.

"It's been a sort of up and down season and it was soo cool to race down to the end with my dad for a point championship," said Wagner. "I'm glad we could come out on top, but now we turn our focus to the Tuscarora 50 and see if we can’t cap off this weekend with some more success."

Super Late Models

Jeff Rine capitalized on a front row starting spot to pick up the River Valley Builders Super Late Model feature win over pole sitter Trent Brenneman and Gary Stuhler.

The feature event win was worth $3000 courtesy of Ted Reitz and moved Rine solely into 10th all time on the wins list of the speedway in late model competition with 25

"Finally we got one here this year. Starting position means so much at this place," said Rine. "That last restart saved us as my tires needed cooled off and we were able to make it work."

Trent Brenneman led the majority of the race from the pole position, but Rine and Colton Flinner were hot in pursuit for the first half of the race.

Rine was closing rapidly on the bottom of the speedway, but a three car incident with 10 laps to go gave Brenneman clean air and a clean start.

When the field returned to green flag action, Rine got a run on the outside of turn one and exited turn two with the lead. Stuhler also dispatched of Flinner on the restart to move into the podium position and was all over Brenneman for second.

Brenneman rebounded over the next several laps and was closing on Rine with three to go. However, Rine was too good in clean air and took the checkers by a 2.027 advantage.

Brenneman, Stuher, Ross Robinson and Dylan Yoder rounded out the top five. Flinner, Dan Stone, Andy Haus, Brett Schadel and Jim Yoder made up the top ten.

"I was getting signals that Flinner was on the top back there and I knew Trent was going to be tough form the front row, but we found something here recently and this car was just great," said Rine. "I wish we'd been a little better earlier this year, but it’s nice to close out the year in this new victory lane."

With his seventh-place finish, Haus wrapped up the track championship in the Super Late Model division as well.

"It's been a short season, but we spent a lot of long nights working in the garage to get to this point," said Haus. "We were way off tonight and we went through a lot of equipment to get to this point. The competition here is as good as it gets and it’s unbelievable to be sitting here as a champion."

Cory Eliason Strikes First During Night One of Tuscarora 50 Opener with All Star Circuit of Champions

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Pa. (Sept 10, 2020)- Cory Eliason kicked off the 2020 racing season at Port Royal Speedway with a victory during opening day back in March. If Thursday night’s performance is a sign of things to come, he just may end the season in victory lane at the Juniata County oval as well.

Eliason bested Australian invader Kerry Madsen and the legendary Tony Stewart to pick up the Ollie’s Bargain Outlets All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 night one opener presented by Ted Reitz of the 53rd Annual Tuscarora 50 at Port Royal Speedway during the 166th Annual Juniata County Fair.

The win was worth $6000 and came on an incredibly fast racetrack that saw a handful of drivers get upside down and suffer flat tires throughout the duration of the feature.

“They don’t call this place ‘The Speed Palace’ for nothing,” exclaimed Eliason. “It was a blast here tonight and definitely a lot different than what we saw on Monday during the Labor Day Classic. The kind of track we had here tonight is kind of my forte and we were fast right out the gate tonight.”

After a pair of red flag incidents for James McFadden and Kyle Larson halted racing action without the completion of a lap, Stewart and weekend invader Brian Brown led the field to the green flag, with Stewart getting the jump and leading lap one.

Eliason, who started third, dropped to fourth on the opening lap but he quickly regained the position a lap later by getting around Madsen and he slipped under Brown entering turn 1 on lap three to move into the runner-up position.

By lap five, Eliason was all over the rear bumper of Stewart and two laps later he shot under underneath the leader to take the point entering turn one. However, the pass was negated when third place running Brown blew a right-rear tire and got into the outside guardrail to bring out the caution.

On the return to green, Stewart got a great restart and jumped back out to the lead but Eliason quickly showed he was to be denied. On lap 10 he closed to the bumper of Stewart again and the two raced side by side heading to the flag stand two laps later with Stewart holding the narrowest of advantages.

However, the momentum was enough for Eliason to pounce as he slid under Stewart to take the top spot and lead lap 13.

“You could get a good run and roll the bottom and that curb up top in three and four was very much like Tulare in California and that’s where I could make up my ground early,” said Eliason. “Tony kind of was showing me the way out there in three and four and I knew I had to lock it in and get him where I could as soon as possible.”

Eliason hit lap traffic at the halfway point and with a commanding lead of 2.345 seconds, he had nearly got tangled up in a wreck when track point leader Logan Wagner got into the fence exiting turn 2 and got upside down. He collected Spencer Bayston and Tyler Bear, but Eliason was able to evade any contact to stay in front.

On the restart, Stewart showed his nose through the middle in turn’s one and two, but Eliason was just too strong as he blasted off the cushion to lead the way once again.

Seventh place start Gio Scelzi had found something on the top of the speedway and after cracking the top-five earlier, he moved past Lance Dewease for fourth with 11 laps remaining. Three laps later Rico Abreu was bitten by the tire bug though as he slowed with a flat left-rear to bring out the caution.

Stewart tried the bottom again on the restart, but Eliason again powered off the top of the track to blast out to a hefty advantage. It looked like he was going to coast home to a commanding victory, but Brock Zearfoss slowed after he blew a right-rear tire in turn three and nearly collected Eliason as he was coming around for the checkered flag.

“You know I thought we were going to lose one there as I came around and saw Brock right in the middle of the track and I had nowhere to go,” said Eliason. “I just turned the car sideways and hoped there’d be enough room to get by and thankfully there was.”

The late caution set up a green-white-checkered finish, but Eliason was not going to be denied as he cruised home to the checkered flag by a 2.114 second advantage. Madsen was able to slide past Stewart for second on the white flag lap, while Scelzi and Tyler Courtney filled out the top-five.

Aaron Reutzel, Ian Madsen, Anthony Macri, Brent Marks and Dewease made up the top-10. Ian Madsen earned $500 as the hard charger (+17) courtesy of Valley Supply Inc.

“We worked on a few things tonight, but nothing major,” said Eliason. “Obviously our main focus is Saturday night as that’s where the big money Is on the line, but this is a nice way to start the weekend and I’m looking forward to two more nights here at Port Royal.”

For Madsen, he knew in clean air Eliason would be hard to catch and was just happy to escape night one with a podium finish. He also set quick time earlier in the night and received $200 courtesy of Packer’s Concessions.

“I don’t know that we could’ve done much different as Cory was just really good and tough to pass,” said Madsen. “I was just kind of biding my time out there and luckily I got a late restart to get by Tony and I just needed more time and help if we wanted to get Cory.”

Heat races were won by Brown, Eliason, Dewease, Stewart and Christopher Bell, while Stewart and Brown won dash races. Freddie Rahmer picked up the B-main victory.

Anthony Macri Continues Winning Ways at Port Royal With 68th Annual Labor Day Classic Triumph

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Pa. (Sept. 7, 2020)- Anthony Macri capitalized on a front row starting spot and held off Brock Zearfoss and Logan Wagner to claim the 68th Annual Foss Jewelers Labor Day Classic Monday evening at Port Royal Speedway.

The victory was Macri’s sixth Port Royal Speedway triumph of the season and was worth $4000 for his efforts.

“I feel like we are clicking on all cylinders right now,” said Macri. “My confidence is obviously pretty good right now and I’m just glad we held on for the win.”

Macri lined up on the front row alongside of one-time winner on the season, Jeff Halligan, and after the first green flag was called back by track officials, he used momentum exiting turn two to slide under Halligan to lead lap one.

Zearfoss, who started fifth, was on the move early on as he moved to fourth on lap two and third the following circuit.

With the track taking rubber early, Halligan capitalized on Macri running the top of the Speedway and he used the bottom of the speedway in turn’s one and two to take the lead on lap five.

However, with lap traffic entering the picture only a few laps later, Macri capitalized on a rookie mistake by Halligan to lcose the gap significantly on lap eight.

Now glued to the bottom of the track, Macri regained the lead on lap nine and he started to stretch his advantage when the caution flew on lap 12 for a flat tire for Ian Madsen. By then, Zearfoss had disposed of Halligan as well and was lurking in the rearview.

“Jim and I talked before the feature and he told ne to run the top until we got passed and we got passed early,” said Macri, referring to his crew chief Jim Shuttlesworth. “He passed me, and I went into maintaining mode and getting into lapped traffic he made a mistake and I just snuck under him and started saving my stuff.”

Zearfoss had an opportunity on the restart to challenge Macri, but the caution again flew one lap later for a spinning Kyle Smith in turn one. Macri opened a half second advantage within three laps after a return to green, but the caution flew again on lap 18 for debris.

One more caution flew on lap 21 for a slowing Brent Marks, but for the rest of the race the name of the game was staying on the bottom and not missing your marks. Track point leader Logan Wagner was able to sneak into a podium position as well, but neither him or Zearfoss was able to capitalize as Macri hit all of his marks and crossed under the checkered flag by an advantage of 1.644 seconds.

Stutts and Halligan finished up the top-five, while Danny Dietrich, Mike Wagner, AJ Flick, Dylan Cisney and Justin Peck rounded out the top-ten.

Zach Newlin earned $400 courtesy of Valley Supply and Mike Cleck Paving as race’s hard charger by going 23rd to 13th.

“I was happy with the cautions, because it was keeping me out of lap traffic,” said Macri. “I knew lapped traffic would open the door for someone to make a ballsy move, so I was happy to see the cautions.

“At the same time, I was nervous because I was seeing all those right rear tires blowing and we had a soft right rear on so it was definitely nerve wracking. I was happy to see it end because those last five laps the tires were vibrating pretty bad and I knew it was only a matter of time before one went.”

For Zearfoss, who blew a right rear tire heading to the scales after the race, he knew without lapped traffic he’d have to rely on a mistake if he wanted to come home first.

“It was rubber racing, but our car was good enough to make a move,” said Zearfoss. “He had clean air the entire time basically. I noticed when he got to lapped traffic, he got really tight and we were still really good.

“I tried to get him one there and the caution came out and I was just hoping another chance would come around. We never got that chance unfortunately, but we’ll take second and keep plugging away.”

Wingless Super Sportsman

Billy Brian Jr. and Joey Biasi won a pair of Wingless Super Sportsman feature events Monday evening at Port Royal Speedway.

In their first feature event, Brian Jr. came form the fourth position to win over Kevin Gutshall, Biasi, Craig Perigo and Cliff Brian Jr.

Brian Jr. moved into second on the opening circuit and to the lead using the bottom of the speedway to pass Brian Hartzell in turn one and two with 18 to go.

Eric Jennings tried multiple times over the next dozen laps to get around Brian Jr, but he couldn’t get enough momentum to pull off a pass.

A late caution with three laps remaining set up a late-race shootout, however Brian Jr. was just too good on the bottom and he cruised home to the victory by 1.097 seconds.

“I’m old enough and ran enough labor day shows in my career to know if you don’t get up off the rubber it’s going to be hard for them to pass you,” said Brian Jr. who noted he last won a limited late model race at the speedway in 1989. “I’m dating myself a bit, but we just had to our marks and we were able to do that.”

Biasi capitalized on a front row starting spot to claim the second feature, which was a rain postponement make-up from earlier this season. He took the checkered flag by a margin of 1.147 seconds over Jennings, Steve Wilbur, Steve Whary and Brian Hartzell.

Biasi fell back to third early in the race, but with 15 to go he moved back into the runner up spot when Derek Sheaffer slid up in turn one. He quickly was all over Wharry and he used a slide job entering turn one with 13 to go to take the lead for good.

A late race caution with four laps to go had Jennings all over the back end of Biasi, but with cars battling hard behind him for the runner-up spot, Biasi cruised home to the victory.

“I’m not a very good leader and I’m not good on dry and slick so when it took rubber, I was happy,” said Biasi. “I just tried to stay on the bottom and not miss my mark and this is just really cool.”

Limited Late Models

Todd Snook led every lap of the Selinsgrove Limited Late Model feature event to bring home his second career feature event in the division at the speedway. Snook also owns four feature wins previously in the Econo Late Model division.

Snook won by an advantage of 1.085 seconds over Dillan Stake, Devin Hart, Donnie Farling and Andrew Yoder.

Snook and Curt Dunn led the field to the green flag and Snook got the early jump form the bottom of the speedway.

A handful of cautions plagued the race for the first half of the event and by lap seven, Hart was all over Snook for the lead. The two made brief contact on the backstretch with seven laps to go, but the contact halted the momentum of Stake and allowed Snook to pull away.

A multi-car caution once again set up a six-lap dash for the checkered flag, but with Stake and Hart doing battle for second, Snook was able to pull away to earn his first victory of the season.

“I don’t know if all those cautions helped me or hurt me, but I was starting to get comfortable there late,” said Snook. “We were lucky enough to draw the pole and that’s probably what won it for us, but I’d rather be lucky than good.”

4 Cylinders

Eric Boozel won the 4-cylinder feature event Monday evening at Port Royal Speedway. The division started 43 cars for the 15-lap race and with five laps remaining, only 20 cars remained.

Boozel started on the pole and fell back to fifth on the opening turn. He regained his composure though and advanced to second at the completion of lap one. After multiple cautions, Boozel took the lead when Adam Campbell got sideways while leading on a lap nine restart and he went untouched the rest of the way.

“I had a good car, but Adam had a better car and that was his race to win,” said Boozel. “I was waiting on him to slip off and I could see he had an issue and I just tried not to get caught up in a wreck.”

A New Identity In Twenty-Twenty

Macri And Marks Thrill In Selinsgrove Sprint Battle Sunday, Rine Gets 112th Oval Win In ULMS Late Model Main, Jones Scores In Roadrunners

9/6/20

Selinsgrove, Pa. – Anthony Macri picked up the 30-lap National Open Qualifier for 410 sprints at Selinsgrove Speedway on Sunday night, besting Brent Marks after a battle for the lead with nine circuits to go.

Macri’s first career oval win was worth $5,000 and it earned him a guaranteed starting spot in the September 26, $20,000 to win National Open Jim Nace Memorial.

Danville’s Jeff Rine drove around Pittsburgh’s Jared Miley to pick up the 30-lap ULMS super late model feature worth $4,000.

The victory was Rine’s 112th at the track and it saw him record the Civil War Super Late Model Series title as waged between Selinsgrove and Williams Grove Speedways.

Jake Jones took the lead on a final lap restart to pick up the 12-lap roadrunner feature to close out the night.

AJ Flick had the pole flanked by Anthony Macri for the start of the 410 sprint feature.

The first lap was halted before it could be completed for a violent backstretch crash that saw Indiana’s Justin Peck and Port Royal’s Dylan Cisney flip hard.

Cisney was transported to a nearby hospital for tests and was released very early Monday morning with no injuries.

Macri soared into control over third starter Brent Marks on the first completed circuit with Flick running third.

Leader Macri entered the rear of the field on lap eight with sixth starter Brock Zearfoss now up to third and ready to challenge.

In what would turn out to be a non-stop event, the pace became dizzying by the halfway point as 10th starter Brian Brown drove up to fourth.

But it was the front trio that would settle the event while racing through traffic and with 10 laps to go, all three drivers were running under a blanket within one turn of each other, contesting for the to spot.

Marks blasted under Macri to take the lead deep in the first corner on lap 20 before sliding up in front to take Macri’s line.

Macri then dropped off of the cushion and raced back to Marks’ inside as the pair shot down the backstretch and into the third turn, still side by side.

Macri bolted low through turns three and four and was able to reclaim command back to the stripe with nine laps to go.

The leader then dropped to the low side in the first and second turns to regroup as Zearfoss raced with Marks for the runner-up spot.

With four laps to go, Zearfoss was able to secure second and start tracking down leader Macri but he failed to get quite close enough to make a bid for control.

Macri took the victory by .915 seconds with Brown riding home third followed by Marks and 17th starter Danny Dietrich, who earned the hard charger award worth $200.

Sixth through 10th went to Blane Heimbach, Freddie Rahmer, AJ Flick, Brian Montieth and TJ Stutts.

Heats went to Marks, Lucas Wolfe and Heimbach with Cisney scoring the consolation race.

Pittsburgh’s Jared Miley took the early lead from the outside of the front row in the 30-lap ULMS late model main and was leading over Jim Bernheisel with a 2.7 second advantage when the pace was slowed with seven laps in the book.

Running third for the restart, Centerville’s Max Blair took second on the restart and closed in on Miley while 10th starter Jeff Rine motored up to third.

Working the outside lane using maximum horsepower, Rine overtook Blair for second on lap 14 and then went to work on Miley to be scored the leader of lap 15.

The pace was then again slowed with 14 laps to go but Rine proved in control for the balance of the race.

Blair got by Miley for second with 10 laps to go but failed to get to Rine before the finish although he kept him honest the entire distance.

Rine’s margin of victory was .602 seconds with Miley finishing third followed by 16th starter Gregg Satterlee and Jim Bernheisel.

Sixth through 10th went to Jim Yoder, Shaun Jones, Mike Lupfer, Brett Schadel and Nathan Long.

Heats went to Blair, Kyle Knapp and Hayes Matter.

Fast time over the 26 car field was set by Blair with a lap of 18.870 seconds.

Scott Dunham Jr. led all but the final lap of the 12-lap roadrunner main.

Early in the race Will Brunson pressured Dunham for the lead but late in the event Jake Jones proved to be the challenger.

Jones got by Brunson and into second with two laps to go but then actually had to take the lead three times before he could be scored the official pacesetter as it took three different attempts to get the final lap recorded.

The victory was Jones’ fourth of the year at the track.

Brunson ended up second followed by Nathan Romig, Tom Brunson and Jimmy Kessler.

Heats went to Will Brunson and Dunham.

Mason Zeigler Earns 16th Annual Butch Renninger Victory for Super Late Models During 166th Annual Juniata County Fair Kick-Off

 

Brent Marks, Jared Fulkroad and Gregg Satterlee Claim Victories as Well

 

By- Justin Snyder

 

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Pa. (Sept. 5, 2020) Mason Zeigler held off Trevor Feathers and Gregg Satterlee to pick up the win in the 16th Annual Butch Renninger Memorial featuring the ULMS Super Late Models by a margin of 1.415 seconds.

 

The win was worth $5333 and was Zeigler's third career triumph at the Port Royal Speedway.

 

"We were good early on and I just gave it all I had out there to win this race," said Zeigler. "I never got to meet Butch, but I know he meant a lot to this place and was a great guy and it's an honor to be standing here carrying on that legacy."

 

Zeigler and Feathers led the field to the green flag for the 33-lap A-main and Zeigler jumped out to the early lead. However, it was third-place starter Satterlee and sixth-place starter Michael Norris on the move as the duo moved into second and third respectively at the completion of lap one.

 

Satterlee peaked under the leader entering turn three and pulled alongside of Zeigler coming to the line, but couldn’t make the pass. However, he was able to use that momentum to get under Zeigler in turn's one and two and pulled ahead down the backstretch to lead lap two.

 

By lap six Satterlee held a commanding lead in lap traffic, while Zeigler and Norris were battling side by side to track him down.

 

By lap 13 the two cars were closing rapidly and three laps later all three were nose to tail coming to the flag stand. Zeigler used the bottom of the speedway in one and two to regain the lead. Satterlee would fall back to third three laps later, but he put his car in overdrive and began marching back towards the front.

 

With ten laps remaining, Zeigler came off the top of the speedway and dove to the bottom of a lap car in turn three, allowing Satterlee to close to his bumper exiting turn four. Three laps later, Satterlee was all over Zeigler's bumper and Feathers had found something up top and regrouped to move back into third.

 

However the caution would fly for a slowing car on the backstretch. With the series utilizing Delaware restarts, Zeigler got a great jump on the field at the return to green-flag action and blasted out to a near 1.0 second advantage. Feathers capitalized on getting to start on the high-side and moved into second.

 

However Zeigler would not be denied and he took the checkered flag convincingly over Feathers, Satterlee, Norris and Kyle Lee.

 

"I would've have liked to have been a little better earlier, but ultimately we were good when we needed to be and capitalized on clean air," said Zeigler. "It’s been a pretty good weekend so far for us and hopefully this leads to even more wins."

 

For Feathers, he wasn't good enough early on and knew it be tough to catch Zeigler in clean air.

 

"Last time we had this car here we finished third, but we hadn't used it in a while and really had no notes to work off of coming in tonight," said Feathers. "We were pretty good there late and I hated to see that caution because who knows what we could've done in lap traffic. But second is not a bad showing at all."

 

Heat races earlier in the night paid $333 courtesy of Ted Reitz, while second place finishers paid $50 courtesy of David Bower. There was also a $133 hard luck award for the first non-qualifier courtesy of Pellman Trade and Gullwing Aviation and Reitz offered up $33 to the B-Main winner. Gene Knaub earned the $333 hard charger award courtesy of Brown's Automotive. Norris set quick time earlier in the night and earned $466 courtesy of Barron's Racing Engines and Del Shank.

 

There was a second ULMS Late Model feature  event that was a make-up feature from earlier this season and Gregg Satterlee led all 25 laps from the pole to earn the victory for his fifth Port Royal Speedway victory of the season.

 

Satterlee bested Michael Norris, Mason Zeigler, Max Blair and Andy Huas. The win was worth $3000 and came by an advantage of 1.102 seconds.

 

"I knew after that first feature that I'd need to be really aggressive in lap traffic as I felt being patient cost us a bit in the first one," said Satterlee. "It's always great to be in victory lane and two podiums on one night is pretty good."

Sprint Cars

 

Brent Marks held off a hard charging Anthony Macri and Lance Dewease to pick up his second win of the season during the 166th Annual Juniata County Fair opener at Port Royal Speedway.

 

The win was worth $4000 and required a little luck. Macri passed Marks in lap traffic coming to the flagstand, only for the pass to be negated as the caution flag waved before the lap could be completed.

 

"We were pretty fortunate to get that caution just in time or I don’t know if we'd have been able to get Anthony back," said Marks. "That allowed us to get back in clean air and out there I felt like we had the best car and that definitely helped us."

 

Western Pa. invader Sye Lynch and Justin Whittall led the field to the green flag and Whittall got the early jump on the field to lead lap one. George Hobaugh settled into second, while Ryan Smith moved into the third spot as well.

 

By lap five, Whittall was cruising as he held a nearly 1.1 second advantage over the field, but Marks, who started ninth, was coming fast. He got by Smith exiting turn four on lap six and three laps later he used a run coming off the top of the speedway exiting turn two to get by Hobaugh for second.

 

One lap later Dewease followed suit by taking the third spot and with Whittall in heavy lap traffic, Marks was gaining fast and he made his move for the lead with a slider in turn's three and four to take the top spot with 11 to go. 

 

"I knew we had to get to the front as quick as possible as those guys behind me were coming fast as well," said Marks. "Sometimes running second is better then running out front, but I knew with how it's been here this year and I knew I wanted the field chasing me."

 

Meanwhile, Anthony Macri was making his presence known as he screamed around the top of turn's one and two to move into the third spot. One lap later he disposed of Whittall for the runner up position and he brought Dewease along as well.

 

Macri was all over Marks on lap 17 and the two swapped positions in turn's three and four. Marks led by  mere inches the following circuit, while Dewease was lurking on the bottom waiting for either driver to make a mistake. 

 

With Macri running the top, Marks positioned firmly in the middle and Dewease on the bottom, the three drivers raced to the start/finish line the following lap and it appeared Macri had the momentum as he inched ahead coming to the line, but the caution flew just in the nick of time when Logan Wagner got into the inside gaurdrail on the backstretch to negate the pass.

 

"It was a hard to know where to go as I know how good Lance is on the bottom and Anthony was great up top, so I tried to go to the bottom there  exiting four to try and get a run on Macri," said Marks. "Ultimately he beat me off the corner, but luckily that caution came out and it definitely saved me."

 

With clean air ahead of him, Marks blasted out to the lead at the return to green-flag racing and he held a nearly 1.5 second advantage with five laps remaining. However the red flag flew on lap 22 for a multi-car incident in which Tyler Reeser needed to be transported to the hospital. He was alert and is currently being treated for multiple injuries.

 

The final restart was all Marks and he again blasted out to a nearly 1.2 second lead and he took the checkered flag by a 1.173 advantage over Macri, Dewease, Mike Wagner and Whittall.

 

"I just felt really comfortable in clean air and I think we had a great car all race long," said Marks. "I was trying to do some different stuff on the restarts to keep them guessing and it seemed to work tonight."

 

For Macri, he knew his best opportunity was in lap traffic and he felt like one may have gotten away from him with that late caution.

 

"We got behind at the start and let Brent and Lance get by us and I started driving harder than I really should have," said Macri. "That caution came out about two seconds too early and I knew we weren't going to catch Brent in clean air. We'll take what we got and move onto the next one."

 

Jeff Halligan, Smith, Brian Brown, Blane Heimbach and AJ Flick rounded out the top ten. Heimbach was the night's hard charger award winner courtesy of Valley Supply.

Limited Late Models

 

Jared Fulkroad bested Devin Hart and Devin Weyandt to pick up the Selinsgrove Ford Limited Late Model portion of the 16th Annual Butch Renninger Memorial to claim his first career victory at the Port Royal Speedway.

 

The win was worth $1333 and came after a late race pass with nine laps to go.

 

"My tires really starting coming in there late and I just committed to the bottom and figured if they were going to get around me, it need to be up top," said Fulkroad. "The track was awesome and we had an awesome car and I can’t thank everyone enough for getting me here."

 

It was a pair of 88's on the front row as Weyandt and Madeline Miller led the field to the green flag with Weyandt getting the early jump. Fulkroad was on the move early, moving from third to second on the opening lap as well.

 

He tried a slider in turn's one and two to take the lead on lap two, but couldn't make it stick. However, he used the momentum to pull under Weyandt exiting turn four and led lap two by a nose. Weyandt wouldn’t go away though and he used the outside of the track to pullback ahead the following circuit to lead lap three.

 

With ten laps to go, Fulkroad was all over Weyandt and using the bottom of the speedway he pulled ahead of him the following lap to lead lap 16.

 

Using the extreme high side of the track, sixth-place starter Matt Cochran suddenly entered the picture and he moved to fourth with seven laps to go and second with five to go. With Fulkroad struggling in lap traffic, Cochran pulled to his tail. 

 

However, he wasn't able to capitalize and Fulkroad pulled away to take the checkered flag. Hart made a last lap move form fourth to second to finish in the runner-up spot followed by Weyandt, Todd Snook and Cochran.

 

"This is just really cool and I don’t really know what to say," said Fulkroad. "I just have to thank my family and sponsors for sticking by me and this will always be a special night."

 

For Hart, who also earned the hard charger award, it was just an example of too little, too late.

 

"We were pretty good there, but it just took us too long to get to second," said Hart. "One of these years we'll end up in victory lane, but tonight we'll just be happy with second."

 

Heat winners earned $100 earlier in the night courtesy of Garman Concrete & Construction, while second earned $33 courtesy of Bill and Kay Weimer.

Abbottstown, PA (September 5, 2020) – Danny Dietrich inked his name in Lincoln history with a sweep of the Twin 20 features during the Bob Leiby Memorial on Saturday night. The only other driver to accomplish this feat in Lincoln history was Steve Smith in 1992. It had been eight years since Twin 20 features were on the card at Lincoln. Brian Montieth and Dietrich split the last Twin 20 event held in 2012.

Brie Hershey and Brett Michalski made up the front row for the night’s first Twin 20 feature.

Michalski led the field into turn 1 with Hershey, Alan Krimes, Glenndon Forsythe and Adam Wilt making up the top five.

Wilt got by Forsythe for fourth, but the caution came out on lap 1 before the pass was official. The yellow was for Brie Hershey who go turned around in turns 3 and 4. Hershey rejoined the field.

Michalski led Krimes, Forsythe, Wilt and Brian Montieth to the cone for the single-file restart.

Michalski rolled through the top of turns 1 and 2 to maintain the lead on the restart as a three-car battle for third between Forsythe, Wilt and Montieth waged behind him.

The second caution of the race came on lap 4 when Hershey tried to exit the track out of turn 2 but stopped on the ramp.

Krimes went to the bottom of turn 1 on the restart to challenge Michalski for the lead but Michalski held on to the top spot.

Matt Campbell was working on Tim Glatfelter for fifth and took the position coming out of turn 2 on lap 5.

Montieth had caught Wilt and was on his bumper for third.

As the halfway point approached Michalski was closing in on lapped traffic. Krimes reeled in the leader as they worked through heavy lapped traffic.

Wilt moved into second on lap 13. As Michalski worked his way through lapped traffic, he was holding off Wilt, Montieth and Danny Dietrich as they all challenged him for the lead.

Wilt dove into turn 3 to try and take the lead and made contact with the leader Michalski as he attempted a slide job. Michalksi never stopped as Wilt sat in turn 2 backed into the outside wall to bring out the caution on lap 16.

Michalski maintained the lead as no cars had passed the flag stand before the yellow flag came out.

Michalski paced the field ahead of Montieth, Dietrich, Campbell and Krimes for the restart.

Michalski went high and Montieth went low going into turn 1. The bottom served Montieth well as he took the lead coming out of turn 2. Dietrich followed and took second coming out of turn 4.

The yellow flag flew on lap 18 for Brandon Rahmer who got spun around in turn 4.

With two laps to go Montieth led Dietrich, Campbell, Michalski and Krimes on the restart.

Dietrich drove to the top of turn 1 on the restart and took the lead coming out of turn 2 and held off Monteith down the back stretch.

The first Twin 20 of the night went to Dietrich who crossed the line 1.308 seconds ahead of Montieth. Campbell finished third and Krimes was fourth. Jim Siegel completed the top five.

After winning the first Twin 20 feature after starting 14th, Dietrich pulled the 8 pill for the inversion. The lined up Tim Glatfelter on the pole and Dietrich eighth for the start of the second feature.

Glatfelter led the field into turn 1 on the start with Justin Peck using the top to settle into second.

Michalski and Siegel battled for third with Siegel taking the spot on lap 2.

After Siegel got by Michalski, he had to fend off Dietrich and Montieth as they both tried to get into the top five. Dietrich took fifth coming out of turn 2 on lap 5. Montieth followed on the next lap, taking sixth from Michalski.

Lapped traffic came into play for Glatfelter on lap 6.

The caution flag flew on lap 7 for Glenndon Forsythe who fell off the pace and headed to the pits.

Glatfelter led Peck, Siegel, Campbell and Dietrich on the restart. Peck used the top of the turns on the restart as Glatfelter rolled through the bottom of turns 1 and 2.

Peck tried a slider on Glatfelter for the lead, but it didn’t stick.

Dietrich and Campbell drag raced down the back stretch for fourth with Dietrich taking the spot. Once again Montieth followed getting by Campbell as well.

The yellow came out again on lap 9 when Brandon Rahmer got out of sorts in turns 1 and 2.

Both Glatfelter and Peck went to the top on the restart allowing Glatfelter to pull away. Siegel tried to slide Peck for second but to no avail. Dietrich closed in and was up beside Siegel for third and took the spot on lap 11.

Again, Montieth followed Dietrich and took fourth after getting by Siegel. Montieth got high in turns 1 and 2 on the next lap allowing Siegel to take the spot back.

Dietrich was searching the track to try and make up some ground on the leaders.

Glatfelter entered lapped traffic with five laps to go. As the leaders worked their way through lapped traffic you could throw a blanket over the top three.

Dietrich and Peck were side by side at the line with two to go. Peck had the advantage at the line, but Dietrich took the spot going into turn 1.

Dietrich didn’t have much time to track down Glatfelter, but he caught the leader on the last lap and threw a slider in turn 4 winning the second Twin 20 feature in exciting fashion.

Glatfelter held on to finish second and Peck crossed the line third. Siegel finished fourth and Matt Campbell completed the top five.

With his sweep of both features, Dietrich earned a $750 Clean Sweep Bonus. $500 of the bonus was from Brooks Graphix and the Leiby family with Mamma’s Pizza of Wellsville putting up the additional $250.

Sprint car heat race winners were Scott Fisher, Brie Hershey and Brett Michalksi.

The young gun was impressive all night and capped off his trip north with a victory.

Billy Workman Jr. drove by Chris Transeau and Reyna from third to take the lead on the start. The caution came out on lap 1 for Richie Dobson who got spun around coming out of turn 4.

Transeau and Reyna raced side by side on lap 11 for second. Transeau held the spot by a nose at the line on lap 12.

Reyna took the second spot using the top side of the track coming out of turn 2. Johnson followed also getting by Transeau. Transeau didn’t go quietly and took the spot back. Johnson stuck around and took third back from Transeau as Reyna caught Workman at the front of the field.

The caution came out on lap 15 as Workman and Reyna made contact as they battled for the lead. Workman ended up backwards in turn 3 as Reyna drove away from the incident without coming to a stop.

After inheriting the lead, Reyna led Johnson, Transeau, Kearchner and McClelland on the restart.

Johnson got his nose under Reyna as they drag raced down the back stretch side by side. Reyna held the lead by a nose on lap 16. The two continued to battle and Reyna’s advantage was even smaller on lap 17 at the line.

The battle at the front of the field allowed Transeau to move within striking distance making it a three way battle for the top spot.

Transeau got his nose under Johnson in an attempt to take second but couldn’t hold the advantage as they crossed the line as the laps wound down.

Reyna got to the checkered flag .743 seconds ahead of Johnson. Transeau held on to finish third with Kearchner crossing the line fourth. McClelland completed the top five.
