AMSOIL USAC NON-WING SPRINTS & MACH 1 360/358 SPRINTS PREP FOR DOUBLE HEADER 4 FEATURE PROGRAM ON WEDNESDAY NIGHT, JUNE 3 AT LINCOLN SPEEDWAY, TIME TRIALS AT 7 PM

Abbottstown, PA . . . . . .. The second round of the Eastern Storm invades the Pigeon Hills on Wednesday, June 3 at 7:00 PM with the AMSOIL USAC National Sprint Car Series and the Mach 1 Chassis 360/358 Sprint Cars at the Lincoln Speedway. A big and exciting night of competition is planned with a full show for both the USAC and 360/358 MACH 1 Sprints plus the make-up features from the 2014 rain out. Gates will open at 5 PM.

Heading into the event, all eyes are on “The People’s Champ” Dave Darland as he chases his 100th USAC victory in the three national series, putting him in the history books with the likes of A.J. Foyt, Rich Vogler and Mel Kenyon as the only drivers to reach the coveted USAC 100 career win mark.

Darland, of Kokomo, IN -- currently sits third in the Series points standing behind Robert Ballou (Rocklin, CA) and Chase Stockon (Elizabethtown, IN) and holds two AMSOIL USAC National Sprint Car victories this season.

Prior to last year’s postponement Darland was awarded the fast qualifier award with a time of 15.174 – a new track record. An ultra-fast racing surface led to a lot of wheel standing down the Lincoln Speedway straight-a-ways and to the top-9 cars besting the previous Lincoln Speedway USAC track record.

A spectacular show is expected with the USAC wingless Sprints running a complete show plus a 25-lap make-up feature. The line-up for the make-up feature will be determined by inverting all cars on the lead lap from the first USAC feature of the night. This should guarantee plenty of passing as the top USAC stars make a second charge to the front of the pack. Nationally ranked drivers Jon Stanbrough, Kevin Thomas Jr., Tracy Hines, CJ Leary and 2014 Eastern Storm Champion, Brady Bacon will all be in attendance. While regional stars Brent Marks, Joe Biasi, Trevor Kobylarz, Brian Allman and Michael Hamer will all be searching for the top prize.

Rounding out the event will be a complete show for the Mach 1 Chassis 360/358 Winged Sprint Cars plus a 25-lap make-up feature and a postponed B-Main from 2014.

Seven-time USAC National Champion, Levi Jones was the winner both times the Eastern Storm invaded the Lincoln Speedway in 2010 and 2011.

HODNETT WIRES FIELD FOR $5,000 SPRINT CAR TILLEY CLASSIC VICTORY GEESEY & THOMPSON SCORE SPORTSMAN & 305 SPRINT WINS

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Greg Hodnett of Spring Grove scored a flag-to-flag victory in Sunday night’s 30-lap Ray Tilley Classic for 410 sprint cars at Selinsgrove Speedway by half of a second over 2013 race winner Brent Marks of Myerstown.

The $5,000 victory was Hodnett’s sixth win in central Pennsylvania and seventh overall this season driving the Heffner Enterprises/Lelands.com No. 27. It marked Hodnett’s 16th career victory at the speedway.

Members of Ray Tilley’s family were on hand to present Hodnett with a custom crystal cup trophy to commemorate the win in the tribute race, which was run to honor the memory of the late Hall of Famer who clinched four sprint car championships and recorded 69 victories at the track.

Lucas Wolfe of Mechanicsburg was the Fast Tees Fast Qualifier with a lap time of 16.907.

Scott Geesey of Dillsburg won his first super sportsman race at Selinsgrove Speedway in the division’s 20-lap feature, while Reese Thompson of Petersburg drove to his first-ever victory at the track in the 20-lap 305 sprint car feature.

Selinsgrove Speedway is back in action this Saturday, May 30, with a four division show of 360 sprint cars, super late models, pro stocks, and roadrunners at 7 p.m. The pro stocks will compete in the annual $1,000-to-win Pro Stock 20 championship race. Track gates will open at 5 p.m.

At the start of the Tilley Classic, Greg Hodnett stormed into the lead from his outside front row starting position and led polesitter Aaron Ott for most of the event. By lap five, Hodnett opened a comfortable lead over Ott, sixth-place starter Brock Zearfoss, 10th-place starter Brent Marks, and fourth-place starter Lucas Wolfe.

At the halfway point, Hodnett had stretched his lead to a straightaway over Ott. On the same lap, 14th-place starter Chase Dietz tagged the third turn wall and rolled to a stop in turn four, bringing out the race’s first caution flag.

When the race resumed, Hodnett completed lap 16 before the caution flag unfurled again when Zearfoss hit the second turn wall after his car reportedly had a rear axle break. On the restart, Marks moved into the second position as fifth-place starter TJ Stutts began to show a lot of speed and advanced to third.

The final caution flag waved on lap 22 for debris, setting up an eight-lap chase to the checkered flag. In the closing laps, Marks reeled in Hodnett to put in a bid for the lead but came up just half of a second short at the checkered flag. Hodnett was victorious over Marks, Stutts, Wolfe, and Ott.

In the super sportsman feature, second-place starter Chad Trout led the field to the green flag with third-place starter Paul Miller in pursuit. The race was slowed on lap seven when Kenny Edkin’s car rolled to a stop on the backstretch.

On the lap eight restart, Trout continued to set the pace with Miller and seventh-place starter Scott Geesey in close pursuit. On another restart, Geesey advanced to the second spot and began to pressure Trout for the lead.

Racing down the backstretch, Miller’s car went up in smoke on the 14th lap and brought out the race’s final caution flag. On the lap 15 restart, Geesey made the winning pass using a slider through the first and second turns. Geesey went on to take the checkered flag by two seconds over Trout, Scott Dellinger, Kevin Nouse, and Doug Dodson.

Reed Thompson started on the pole in the 305 sprint car feature and was chased by third-place starter Jordan Thomas for all 20 laps. Lap after lap, Thomas raced in Thompson’s shadow but never got the opportunity to make a pass for the lead. At the checkered flag, Thompson was victorious by just .92 of a second over Thomas, Bill Jones, Stephanie Stevens, and Erin Statler.

Rich Eichelberger, Gene Knaub and Greg Diehl Win Williams Grove Speedway Saturday Features

Mechanicsburg, PA May 24, 2015

Rich Eichelberger broke a string of mechanical issues by winning the Williams Grove Speedway Saturday Night Series Blazer’s Body Shop Super Sportsman feature. His $1,400 victory came in the 25-lap Bill Heckert Memorial championship.

Rich Eichelberger began the event on the outside of the front row. Cautions on laps one and two slowed the event’s pace. On the third lap contact with another car sent Scott Geesey’s machine, Geesey winner of the first two shows, into the third turn fencing. The contact eliminated Geesey from the race.

Rich Eichelberger, from York Springs, continued setting a fast pace. Kenny Edkins and Russ Mitten had a close fight for second. Mitten took control of second during the seventh circuit.

The race came to a halt in the 11th lap when Stan Wanner’s machine flipped in turn three. Wanner walked away from his spill.

Rich Eichelberger, following the restart, gained an eight-length lead over Russ Mitten. A second red flag occurred during the 15th circuit when oil from an expired engine in Mike Enders’ entry covered a wide area of racing surface.

Eichelberger continued his domination of the show. The battle was for third with Jay Fannasy, Doug Dodson and Frankie Herr in close battle. Rich Eichelberger won his 10th career Saturday Night Series feature by 50 yards over Russ Mitten. Jay Fannasy edged out Doug Dodson for fourth with Frankie Herr in fifth.

Heat wins for the 32 entries went to Scott Dellinger, Geesey, Enders, and Herr. Tony Jackson won the consolation. Steve Wilbur received the Sprint Aces Hard Charger award. The Hard Luck award went to Mike Enders.

Bernie Beard led the opening circuit of the 20-lap Credit Connection Auto Sales 358 Late Model feature. Pat Beard held second position with Sam Gallagher in third. Gene Knaub, the seventh-place starter, was in fourth.

Following a lap two restart, Knaub was in third behind Bernie Beard and Pat Beard. Gene Knaub swept by Pat Beard during the fifth lap. One lap later Knaub challenged leader Bernie Beard. The lead duo battled side-by-side for two laps before Knaub settled into second.

Gene Knaub, in the ninth circuit, used the low lane to pull even with Bernie Beard. After a one-lap duel, Knaub gained first position at the exit of the second turn.

Knaub’s comfortable lead disappeared on the final lap due to a red flag for a Cam Zeigler crash. Zeigler’s car crashed heavily into the back stretch fencing. Zeigler walked away from the incident.

Gene Knaub, from Dover, dominated the final lap, winning by 12 lengths over Bernie Beard. Knaub is the all-time leading Saturday Night Series feature winner and this is his 44th career triumph. Pat Beard was third with Ron Kline in fourth and Billy Wampler was fifth. Kline and Travis Mease won the preliminaries for the 20 cars. The Artwerks Hard Charger award went to Shaun Jones.

Eric Tripp shot into the lead at the start of the 15-lap Aquafun Pools Street Stock main. Steven Dove was second with Bob Scott in third. Greg Diehl advanced from his fifth-starting position into fourth.

Tripp, Dove and Diehl had a close fight for the lead. In the fifth pass of the oval the lead trio were door-to-door at the exit of turn two. There was contact resulting in a broken wheel on Dove’s machine. Chris Derr’s car made hard contact with Dove’s crippled machine triggering a large back stretch crash. Dove’s car rolled over in the melee. All drivers walked away from the wreck.

Eric Tripp, following the restart, continued to lead with Greg Diehl in second. One lap later Diehl went to the bottom of turns three and four to wrestle the lead from Tripp.

Diehl, from New Cumberland, set sail and had a large lead. Jason Geesaman advanced into second with two-time feature winner Jeff Haag in third. Geesaman and Haag narrowed the gap in the final laps. Greg Diehl won his 10th Saturday Night Series career feature by 15 lengths over Jason Geesaman, Jeff Haag, Craig Morgan, and Bob Scott.

KRIMES SURVIVES WILD LINCOLN HILLY RIFE MEMORIAL TO CLAIM $5,000 TOP PRIZE;

Cole Young scores first career sprint car win in 358’s; Bill Diehl comes from 12th to win Central PA Legends feature

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 5/23/2015 – Just another night of professional auto racing at the fabulous Lincoln Speedway.

Krimes capitalized on a late-race spin by leader Danny Dietrich to score his first win of the season in the 30-lap Hilly Rife Memorial on Saturday.

“I don’t know what to say,” said Krimes upon exiting the family-owned Kimmet Construction/Wayne Carini #87 in victory lane after scoring his first win of the season and claiming the $5,000 top prize, “I think Danny had it won there. He got around us early on and we were racing pretty hard. He got in front of us and don’t think I had anything for him. You don’t see that (Dietrich’s spin) very often. He and the 21 have been far and away the two fastest cars, and I think Brian was behind me…those two guys have been real fast and we just haven’t been able to keep up with them. But we were pretty good tonight.”

Krimes restarted ninth (up two spots) for a complete restart following a spectacular opening lap crash that saw the sprinters of fourth-starting Brandon Rahmer and 20th-starting Robbie Kendall flip in turn one. Also involved were Glenndon Forsythe and Gerard McIntyre, Jr. All four drivers were uninjured, but they were all done for the night.

Krimes moved into the top five on an 11th lap restart following a spin by fourth-place Matt Boland in turn four.

He caught Scott Fisher for fourth on lap 14, and was still running there when Dietrich spun and collected third-place Adam Wilt in turn four of lap 27. Glatfelter, who was running second, and Krimes assumed first and second, and Krimes wasted no time driving around Glatfelter for the lead in the first two turns of the restart.

“The track was a little wider tonight, and that played into our hand a little bit. Once I saw Danny spin out and collect Adam, I knew we were second at the time. I had about three more inches on my wing, so I pulled it the whole way back and just held on from there.”

Krimes’ final margin of victory was 1.53 seconds over Glatfelter, with 13th-starting Brian Montieth, Niki Young, and 17th-starting Tyler Ross completing the top five. Sixth through tenth were 23rd-starting Jim Siegel, Freddie Rahmer (who came from the rear after a mid-race spin), Steve Owings, 24th-starting Chase Dietz, and Cory Haas.

Heats for the 31 410 sprinters were won by Haas, Owings, and Young, with Tim Wagaman winning the consolation.

Cole Young, who just celebrated his 15th birthday in April, scored his first career sprint car win in the 20-lap “358” sprint car feature.

Young started on the outside of the front row, led the first two laps of the event, then yielded to sixth-starting Matt Campbell. Campbell quickly opened up a three second lead before being collected in a three-car crash at the back of the field in turn two of lap eight. Young assumed the lead for the restart, and dominated the rest of the way, crossing 2.10 seconds in front of Cody Fletcher, who registered his career best finish at Lincoln by holding off two-time track champ Jeff Rohrbaugh in the process. Fourth and fifth were Chandler Leiby and Matt Findley.

Lincoln Speedway and Central PA point series leader Doug Hammaker came from the back to finish tenth after a six-car crash on the front stretch of lap nine.

Heats for the 33 358 Sprinters were won by Brie Hershey, Leiby, Chris Arnold, and Hammaker, with Phil Walter winning the consolation.

Craley’s Bill Diehl drew the ‘12’ pill for the inversion and then promptly raced to the win in the 15-lap Central PA Legends feature. He took the lead from Joe Ehrisman on lap nine and held off a determined Bob Stough over the final five laps.

Chris Spidle, Ehrisman, and Shane Glatfelter completed the top five.

Jacob Feltch was transported to a nearby hospital after complaining of back pain following a hard crash on lap nine of the feature.

Heats for the 26 Legends were won by Diehl, Shane Glatfelter, and Chad Glatfelter.

Next Saturday night, May 30th, at 7:30 PM it will be APPLE AUTOMOTIVE NIGHT featuring the 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints, and All‐American Outlaws. Gates will open at 5:30 PM.

Port Royal Speedway

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

Buckwalter, Yoder & Reeser Score Port Royal Fallen Heroes Championships

85 Cars Take Part In Holiday Racing Program

5/23/15

Port Royal – Steve Buckwalter of Royersford drove to the $5,000 payday in Saturday night’s 25 lap Fallen Heroes Championship for 410 sprints at Port Royal Speedway to record his second oval victory of the 2015 season.

In the companion 25-lap Fallen Heroes Championship for super late models, Selinsgrove’s Jim Yoder wired the field for the $2,000 win, which was the fourth of his career at the oval.

And in the 305 sprint main, Tyler Reeser scored his second win in as many days on the 305 circuit.

Brock Zearfoss and Davey Sammons shared the front row for the start of the 410 sprint main with Zearfoss taking the lead at the start.

Third starter Buckwalter drove around Sammons and into second on the second tour and was stalking Zearfoss with Aaron Ott racing third when the races first caution unfurled with five laps completed.

Buckwalter challenged Zearfoss on the restart but the Jonestown driver was able to stay ahead for a little while longer.

Buckwalter was strong however and as the pair raced toward the completion of the seventh tour, he muscled his No. 17B to Zearfoss’ inside in the fourth corner to take control.

Eighth starter Greg Hodnett motored into fourth on the same lap as the lead change took place but the field was strung out around the track by that point.

With 10 laps down, 11th starter Brent Marks broke into the top five however he would not be a factor.

Another caution flag with nine laps to go regrouped the field with numerous lapped cars separating the front runners and Buckwalter rocketed away on the restart.

However Ott and Hodnett began biting into the lead with five laps to go and during the final pair of laps they drew to within the same set of turns but ran out of time.

Buckwalter took the victory by 1.023 seconds over Ott, Hodnett, Zearfoss and Marks.

Sixth through 10th went to Dylan Cisney, Lucas Wolfe, Doug Esh, Ryan Taylor and TJ Stutts.

Heats for the 28-car field went to Hodnett, Buckwalter and Ott with Rick Lafferty taking the consolation

Wolfe set fast time in group time trials with a lap of 15.773 seconds.

Jim Yoder rode his pole starting position all the way to the finish in a raced that was riddled with caution flags, taking place on laps three, six, 12 and 18.

Several heavy hitters fell out of contention during the event including Dylan Yoder, Tim Wilson and Dan Stone.

Wilson was running a challenging fourth, trying to take third from Trent Brenneman when the pair connected due to close quarters as they raced hard into the third corner for the spot.

Yoder sliced a tire and fell out of a surging top eight position and Stone likewise withdrew while racing fifth and moving forward.

With six laps to go in the 25-lapper, Greg Satterlee of Rochester Mills began blasting toward the front after starting 12th.

He circled the top of the track with lightning speed and took second from Justin Kann with two laps to go before rapidly closing on leader Yoder.

However the clock was not Saterlee’s friend as he ran out of time to produce a win, instead crossing the line just .958 seconds behind and closing at the finish.

Kann was third followed by Andy Haus and Derrick Casner.

After starting 22nd, Mike Lupfer clawed his way to the front to finish sixth followed by Nick Dickson, Mitch Hack, Coleby Frye and Dave Zona.

Heats went to Jim Yoder, Wilson and Dickson with Zona scoring the consolation for the 30 cars in action.

Matt Parks set quick time with a lap of 18.478 but failed to make the feature event.

Tyler Reeser led the entire way in the 25 lap main for the 305 sprints in another race that was hampered by cautions and a red flag on the 11th lap.

A six-car melee on the frontstretch brought out the red however there were no injuries.

Erin Statler gave up the second spot to Jeff Miller on the fourth lap but Miller ended up crashing out of the event when he plowed into a spun car on the ninth circuit.

Statler mounted a challenge on Reeser for the lead after the red flag but after that Reeser stretched it out to the checkers.

Nathan Gramley, Scott Ellerman and Zach Newlin rounded out the top five followed by Darren Miller, Ryan Lynn, Jon Haegele, Bill Jones Jr. and Tom Worrick.

Heats went to Miller, Haegele and Statler.

Montieth Wins Williams Grove Battle Of High Groove Titans For Third In Four

Reeser takes PASS 305s

5/22/15

Mechanicsburg – Brian Montieth and Danny Dietrich staged a battle of the high groove titans on Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway in the 25-lap sprint car feature with Montieth coming out on top.

For the Phoenixville flyer, it was his third win in four attempts at the track.

In the 20-lap 305 sprint main, Tyler Reeser took the lead, lost it and then reclaimed it late to pick up the victory.

Dietrich and Montieth started on the front row of the 410 sprint main with Dietrich leading the field down to the line before Montieth took control in the first corner.

Dietrich struggled to keep pace with Montieth after he took the lead as the pair entered the backmarkers on the sixth circuit.

But as traffic got heavier and heavier Dietrich was able to zone in on the leader and in fact drew onto this tail on a few occasions before finally taking a full blown stab for the win on the 19th lap with a low swoop into the first turn.

But Montieth one-upped his challenger and rode his momentum to reclaim control as the pair exited the second turn.

It took Dietrich several laps to make up the ground he had lost in the attempt but as the two to go sign appeared he was again ready to go for the checkers.

Only this time it was in the third and fourth turns that he pulled the trigger to slide up in front of Montieth for control as the duo raced to the white flag.

The pair then raced back to the stripe with Dietrich scored the leader as Montieth drew back to Dietrich’s inside.

And then as they raced into the first turn, Montieth turned the tables when Dietrich missed his entry, reclaiming the lead for good as they burst onto the backstretch for the $4,000 payday.

However Dietrich kept Montieth honest to the finish, dogging him across the line, finishing second by just .169 seconds.

Lucas Wolfe was third followed by Greg Hodnett and Aaron Ott.

Sixth through 10th went to Don Kreitz Jr., Stevie Smith, Alan Krimes, Steve Buckwalter and Lance Dewease.

Heats went to Hodnett, Buckwalter and Brock Zearfoss with Ryan Wilson taking the consolation.

Wolfe set quick time with a lap of 16.932 seconds.

James Pryde led on the first lap of the 305 sprint main before he lost the handle in the first corner as Tyler Reeser went for the lead.

After spinning out, Reeser assumed command and set the pace until after the halfway point when 10th starter Darren Miller came into the picture.

Miller made a two car, second turn pass on the 12th lap to take control, drving by Zach Newlin and Reeser to get command.

Miller looked invinceable after getting the lead but with a few laps to go he seemed to pick up a push as his car entered the first corner, allowing Reeser to drive back around to the victory.

Newlin rode home second with Steve Storrie finishing third followed by Ken Duke and a fading Miller.

Sixth through 10th went to Tom Worrick, Stephanie Stevens, Scott Ellerman, Colby Dice and John Martin.

Heats went to Pryde, Reeser and Newlin.

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY WILL PRESENT THE RAY TILLEY CLASSIC FOR 410 SPRINT CARS MAY 24 AS PART OF OPEN WHEEL TRIPLEHEADER

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Selinsgrove Speedway will honor the memory of one of Pennsylvania’s greatest open wheel racers with the running of the Ray Tilley Classic for 410 sprint cars at 7 p.m. Sunday, May 24.

Schatz Beats Hodnett In Battle Of Circuit Point Leaders For WoO Williams Grove Victory

5/15/15

Mechanicsburg – The World of Outlaws and the Williams Grove Speedway point leaders raced it out on Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway with Donny Schatz getting the upper hand over Greg Hodnett to take the victory in the 25-lap sprint car feature worth $8,000.

Schatz, the current outlaws point leader, started on the pole flanked by Hodnett, the current Williams Grove point leader.

Hodnett of Spring Grove earned the spot to start the feature after putting on an eye-opening display in the dash, driving from seventh to second in a lap and a half to secure the outside of the front row for the main.

And when the green flag dropped in the feature event it was indeed Hodnett who took the lead rather handily over Schatz although the outlaws winningest driver this season never allowed Hodnett to get out of reach.

The leaders entered traffic on the eighth tour and again Schatz stuck with Hodnett as he worked the backmarkers.

The pair crossed the line virtually nose to tail on the 11th circuit before Hodnett crept away just a bit but a few laps later and Schatz was again poised to pounce.

They were nose to tail again at the stripe as lap 17 was scored and Hodnett broke low into the first corner.

Schatz stuck his No. 15 to the top to roll the corner and that proved to be Hodnett’s undoing as the North Dakota driver drew to Hodnett’s outside as the pair shot onto the backstretch.

And by the time the pair reached the backstretch bridge Schatz surged into control and it was a lead he would never relinquish during the remaining seven tours.

Instead Schatz pulled away to his 19th career victory at the oval over Hodnett by 1.542 seconds with fifth starter Brian Montieth finishing third after taking the spot from Aaron Ott with five laps to go.

Ott rode home fourth followed by Paul McMahan.

Sixth through 10th went to Stevie Smith, Dave Blaney, Joey Saldana, Shane Stewart and Daryn Pittman.

“Greg was setting a pretty good pace. He got a good start on us,” Schatz said.

“You need traffic to be able to get by guys. He was moving all over the place and we were passing some really good cars there.”

Hodnett said, “We were just a tick off all night and it showed in traffic. Donny’s the best in the world for a reason.”

Heats for the 40-car field went to Hodnett, McMahan, Stevie Smith and Saldana with Schatz winning the dash.

Sheldon Haudenschild put on a good drive to win the B Main.

Aaron Ott set quick time with a lap of 16.611 seconds.

May 15, 2015 Feature Finishes:

410 sprints, 25 laps: 1. Donny Schatz, 2. Greg Hodnett, 3. Brian Montieth, 4. Aaron Ott, 5. Paul McMahan, 6. Stevie Smith, 7. Dave Blaney, 8. Joey Saldana, 9. Shane Stewart, 10. Daryn Pittman, 11. Danny Dietrich, 12. Kerry Madsen, 13. David Gravel, 14. Jason Sides, 15. Danny Holtgraver, 16. Cody Darrah, 17. Logan Schuchart, 18. Brent Marks, 19. Lucas Wolfe, 20. Brad Sweet, 21.

POSSE SWEEP IS OH SO SWEET AT LINCOLN SPEEDWAY;

Greg Hodnett leads PA Posse Charge to take home $10,000 win

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 5/13/2015 – Greg Hodnett almost made it look easy.

Hodnett set fast time over the 47-car field in time trials. Finished second in his heat. Led all six laps of the Dash to start on the pole of the 35-lap Gettysburg Clash. And then finished off his night by leading all 35-laps of the highly anticipated rematch against the World of Outlaws to pick up his 14th career Outlaw win and the $10,000 winners check that went with it.

“I’ve struggled here (Lincoln Speedway), said Hodnett in victory lane. “Getting a great draw in qualifying, taking advantage of it, and obviously getting a great draw in the Dash was huge. We were fortunate enough to take advantage of it and pull out a win.”

As proud as the PA Posse was to get the win against the Outlaws, it didn’t stop there. Outside frontrow starter Stevie Smith and third-starting Ryan Smith gave the Posse faithful even more bragging rights as they finished second and third respectively to give the PA Posse a podium sweep when the dust settled after 35 laps.

Fourth-starting Brad Sweet and seventh-starting Shane Stewart finally got the Outlaws on the board with a fourth and fifth place finish.

Completing the top-10 were Lucas Wolfe, defending Lincoln Speedway Champion Alan Krimes came from 13th to finish 7th, eighth-starting Brent Marks finished eighth, Outlaw Kerry Madsen was ninth, and local favorite Danny Dietrich earned a hard fought 10th place finished after starting 19th.

In all, three of the top-five and six of the top-10 spots were filled by the PA Posse.

Defending six-time World of Outlaw Champion Donny Schatz needed a provisional starting spot after failing to qualify for the feature and earned Hard-Charger honors by finishing 15th after starting 25th.

Fast time in time trials over the 47-car field was set by Hodnett with a one-lap time of 12.817-seconds. Heats for the 410 sprinters were won by Kerry Madsen, Shane Stewart, Brad Sweet, and Brent Marks, with Lance Dewease winning the B-Main and Jason Sides winning the C-Main. Greg Hodnett won the Dash.

This Saturday night, May 16th, there will be no racing at Lincoln Speedway as the PA Posse travels to Williams Grove to take on the World of Outlaws.

Then next Saturday night, May 16th, Lincoln hosts the ANNUAL HILLY RIFE MEMORIAL for 410 Sprints, plus 358 Sprints and Central PA Legends.

World Of Outlaws Race At Williams Grove Friday & Saturday, May 15 & 16

5/10/15

Mechanicsburg – The World of Outlaws will invade Williams Grove Speedway this Friday and Saturday night, May 15 and 16, at 7:30 pm.

The invasion by the traveling band will be the first of three clashes between the outlaws and the Pennsylvania Posse this year.

On Friday night, the 25-lap sprint car winner will receive $8,000 while Saturday’s champion of a 30-lap feature will walk away with $12,000 plus another $5,000 for being crowned the 2015 Morgan Cup champion.

The Morgan Cup title is bestowed in honor of late speedway owner Morgan Hughes and the winner’s side of the title will take ownership of the sterling Morgan Cup for another season.

The trophy will be kept at either World of Outlaws headquarters in Concord, NC., or at the offices of Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg.

Three charities will receive gift baskets during the weekend including the Williams Grove portions of the 50/50 drawing on both nights.

Recipients of the oval’s donations will be The Bethesda Project, the Kiwanis of Dillsburg and the Pennsylvania State Police CampCadet.

The Bethesda Project is located in Philadelphia and provides shelter, housing and programs reaching out to chronically homeless men and women.

Kiwanis is a service organization that helps local communities by raising money for people in need, providing volunteers for fundraisers and more.

At Camp Cadet, youngsters learn about law enforcement and the judiciary system as taught by the State Police at the weeklong camp.

Last year’s May WoO shows at Williams Grove saw circuit regular Daryn Pittman sweep the two-day stand while an outlaw in the form of David Gravel scored the National Open.

However the Summer Nationals in July were scored by a pair of PA Posse pilots in the form of Greg Hodnett and Lance Dewease.

Hodnett currently leads the Williams Grove Speedway point standings and by most accounts is “outlaw fast” at this point in the season.

The World of Outlaws series will hit town with Donny Schatz leading Shane Stewart and Brad Sweet in circuit points.

Adult general admission for both outlaws shows is $30 with youth admitted both nights for just $15.

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

Williams Grove Speedway

Scott Geesey, Dan Zechman and Jeff Haag Win Williams Grove Speedway Saturday Night Features

Mechanicsburg, PA, May 10, 2015

Dominating is the proper word describing Scott Geesey’s performance in the first two weeks of Williams Grove Speedway’s Saturday Night Series Blazer’s Body Shop Super Sportsman shows. The driver from Wellsville roared to the feature win on opening night. This week he returns and scores an easy victory.

Rich Eichelberger and Bobby Hockenberry paced the 25-car Super Sportsman field the opening circuit of their 20-lap main event. Scott Geesey, the sixth-place starter, was in third followed by Jay Fannasy and Mike Enders.

Following a second-lap restart, Rich Eichelberger gained a six-length advantage. Bobby Hockenberry, Scott Geesey and Jay Fannasy were in a close battle for second. In the seventh lap Geesey used slower traffic to wrestle second from Hockenberry.

At the race’s midway point leader Rich Eichelberger encountered heavy traffic allowing Scott Geesey to narrow the gap to two lengths. Two laps later Geesey went to the outside line in turns one and two to sweep by Eichelberger.

The second caution of the race came with five laps remaining. On the restart Rich Eichelberger’s second-place run came to an end when his car drifted to a stop in the fourth turn. After the restart Scott Geesey gained a comfortable lead. He won his 12th career Williams Grove Speedway Saturday Night Series Super Sportsman feature by a straightaway over Bobby Hockenberry, Jay Fannasy, Mike Enders, and Doug Dodson. Geesey’s victory places him second on the Saturday Night Series all-time feature winnner’s list.

Chad Criswell, Hockenberry and Geesey won the preliminary races for the 25 entries. Justin Foster received the Sprint Aces Hard Charger award.

Dan Zechman and Sam Gallagher started on the front row of the 20-lap Credit Connection Auto Sales 358 Late Model feature. Gallagher won the sprint into the first turn and led the first two laps with Zechman, Dave Lathsa, Sam Rial, and Al Cheney in pursuit.

The first of two cautions came at the completion of the second circuit. The duo of Gallagher and Zechman had an intense fight for the lead with both drivers taking the outside line. On the sixth lap Gallagher tried the lower line. One lap later Gallagher went to the bottom and Zechman made his successful pass on the outside.

The second and final caution came on lap 11. Through the final eight laps Dan Zechman and Sam Gallagher had a close competition for first while Sam Rial, Scott Richwine, Dave Latsha, and Billy Wampler were racing hard for third.

With two laps remaining Gallagher pulled even with Zechman on the back stretch. In turn four both cars slid sideways and the drivers gathered their machines. Dan Zechman exited the turn with a two-car length edge and held the advantage to the finish line. The Hanover driver won his second career Saturday Night Series feature ahead of Sam Gallagher, Sam Rial, Scott Richwine, and Billy Wampler.

Qualifying events for the 25-car field went to Wampler, Richwine and Rial. Shaun Jones won the Artwerks Hard Charger award.

Jeff Haag, the opening night feature winner, started on the pole in the 15-lap Aquafun Pools Street Stock main event. Haag led with Craig Morgan, Jason Geesaman, Doug Hoffman, and Kevin Sigler trailing. Geesaman advanced into second on the second lap.

The driver on the move was Mike Walls. The former Late Model driver started in 10th and rapidly progressed into third. Jeff Haag, Jason Geesaman and Mike Walls had an intense fight for the lead and several lengths to the rears was the pack of Craig Morgan, Doug Hoffman, Mike Buckley, Kevin Sigler, and Randy Zechman.

Haag and Geesaman were using the outside lane with Walls working the bottom. Walls edged his car ahead of Geesaman and pulled even with Haag. For three laps Walls would gain a slight lead in the turns but Haag had the momentum onto the straights. With three-laps remaining Walls’ car slipped in turn two allowing Geesaman to regain second.

Jeff Haag and Jason Geesaman raced within a car length through the final two circuits. Mike Walls caught the lead duo on the final pass of the oval. Jeff Hagg, from Mechanicsburg, won the thrilling race by a length over Jason Geeseman while Mike Walls was a length back in third. Craig Morgan was fourth and Doug Hoffman finished in fifth. Haag’s victory is his ninth with the Saturday Night Series tying him for fourth on the Street Stock all-time winner’s list.

Morgan and Haag won the heats for the 24 entries. Mike Walls received the Artwerks Hard Charger award.

The Williams Grove Speedway Saturday Night Series will not be in action next week. The series returns to the famed half-mile oval in two weeks featuring the Bill Heckert Memorial championship for the Blazer’s Body Shop Super Sportsman. Joining the Super Sportsman will be the Credit Connection Auto Sales 358 Late Models and Aquafun Pools Street Stocks. Racing begins at 7 PM.

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY

 9 May 2015 Contact: Steve Inch

TOMECEK, CAMPBELL, MITCH & FOWLER TAKE WINS IN FRONT OF PACKED HOUSE SATURAY NIGHT!

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Eric Tomecek of Abbottstown thrilled the huge crowd that was on hand Saturday at Selinsgrove Speedway for the Max Media Pack The Track Night with a convincing victory in the 25-lap 360 sprint car feature.

The $2,000 win in the Central Builders Supply Company No. 1W was Tomecek’s first since May 4, 2013, at the track. He became the third different winner in five races in 360 sprint car competition.

Steve Campbell of Danville made it two wins in a row in the 25-lap super late model feature. The victory was the 47th of Campbell’s career at the speedway.

Defending champion Brad Mitch of McClure won his first race of the season in the 15-lap pro stock feature, while John Fowler Jr. of Montandon became the first repeat roadrunner winner with a victory in the division’s 12-lap feature.

Selinsgrove Speedway will be back in action at 7 p.m. Saturday, May 17, with a $3,000-to-win 360 sprint car race sanctioned by the Empire Super Sprints (ESS) plus late models and pro stocks. Track gates will open at 5 p.m.

Fourth-place starter Cody Keller shot into the lead at the start of the sprint car feature and was chased by polesitter Mallie Shuster and third-place starter Michael Walter. On the third circuit, Walter moved into the second spot while eighth-place starter Mark Smith drove into third.

On lap four, the caution flag unfurled when Derek Steward crashed in turn one. For the lap five restart, Keller held off Smith, Walter, and sixth-place starter Colby Womer. The race was slowed again on lap seven when Jason Shultz slammed the second turn wall.

Smith drove around the outside of Keller for the lead in turn two on the lap eight restart. Another caution for a flat tire on TJ Stutts’ car regrouped the field. Racing back into turn one, Keller put in a bid to reclaim the lead, only to make contact with Smith’s car, which ended the three-time winner’s night. Keller was the pacesetter on the restart and was moving at a fast clip at the front of the pack until 11th-place starter Eric Tomecek became a threat.

Tomecek found lightning speed late in the race and drove by Keller in the second turn on the 16th circuit. From that point on, Tomecek blistered the speedway and went on to post a convincing 8.5-second margin of victory over Womer, fifth-place starter Derek Locke, Stutts, and Shuster. Keller dropped out of the race with mechanical issues with two laps remaining.

Second-place starter Tony Adams pulled into the lead at the start of the super late model feature. Adams was trailed by polesitter Danny Snyder for the first lap until fifth-place starter Jim Yoder took command of the field. Adams, Yoder, and fourth-place starter Chad Hollenbeck streaked away from the field early in the race.

On the seventh circuit, Yoder drove by Adams using the inside lane in turn three for the lead. A lap later, seventh-place starter Matt Cochran advanced to second. With 10 laps to race, eighth-place starter Steve Campbell surged his way to the front of the pack, passing Yoder on the 17th lap on the backstretch.

Campbell then opened up a lead late in the race and posted a five-second margin of victory over Yoder, Cochran, 15th-place starter Jeff Rine, and ninth-place starter Kenny Trevitz.

Polesitter Brad Mitch put his pro stock in front of the field at the drop of the green flag in the main event. A multi-car incident in turn three regrouped the field for a complete restart. When the race resumed, Mitch again darted into the lead.

For most of the race, second-place starter Dave Brouse Jr. kept Mitch in his sights, with sixth-place starter Adam Campbell racing in the third position. With two laps remaining, Campbell showed a lot of speed, passing Brouse for second and closing in on Mitch for the lead.

At the checkered flag, Mitch was victorious by one second over Campbell, Brouse, Nathan Long, and Matt Hornberger. Curtis Lawton, who crossed the line in the third position, was disqualified after failing a post-race inspection.

Fourth-place starter John Fowler Jr. powered into the lead at the start of the roadrunner feature and wired the field for his second win of the season. Fowler was closely chased by fifth-place starter Bob Bussy, who did a 360-degree spin in turn two early in the race and kept racing.

At the finish, Fowler was victorious by just .55 of a second over Bussey, Butch Shaffer, Ricky Buss, and Tom Underwood.

Port Royal Speedway

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

Hodnett And Parks Win Action-Packed Port Royal Features,

Irvin and Zook take econos and xtremes

5/9/15

Port Royal – Greg Hodnett became the third and final leader of the 25-lap 410 sprint car feature at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night to record his second oval win of the season worth $3,200 in what was an eventful feature.

In an action packed 22-lap super late model main Matt Parks of Three Springs emerged as the victor after a messy incident that netted him the top spot.

In the econo late model main point leader Eric Irvin of Petersburg scored his second win of the season in the division while Jason Zook scored the xtreme stock feature.

Brock Zearfoss and Dave Ely charged down the frontchute off of the front row when the green flag unfurled in the sprint car feature and by the time the pair got to the start finish line things were going awry.

Contact between the pair sent Zearfoss careening around in a ring and backwards in front of the field as the entire pack went scrambling and bolting into the first corner in an attempt to avoid what would be hard contact.

Zearfoss ended up sustaining relatively minor damage while the rest of the field wasn’t nearly as lucky.

A total of six cars were collected in the corner as the red flag flew with Tyler Bear, Trenton Schaeffer, Davey Sammons, Joey Hershey and Nate Snyder also involved.

Doug Esh restarted the race on the pole but it was Dave Ely who took control to lead the race with Esh following along with Hodnett and Brent Marks.

Ely would lead until the 11th tour when Esh finally powered around to take control after dogging Ely for numerous circuits.

Hodnett followed suit on the same lap and immediately began challenging the new leader.

But low or high, Esh’s car was working nearly to perfection and he repeatedly knocked back Hodnett’s advances using both sides of the speedway.

However with seven laps to go disaster struck Esh when he exploded a right rear tire as he raced down the front stretch, surrendering the point to Hodnett.

One lapped car separated Hodnett from Marks on the restart but Marks wasn’t able to muster any challenge as Hodnett instead powered to his 38th career victory at the historic oval.

And instead of Marks getting second, fifth starter Mike Wagner came on strong late in the race to blister by Marks on the inside to record the runner up finish.

Marks was third followed by point leader Lucas Wolfe and Dave Ely.

Sixth through 10th went to Steve Buckwalter, Kevin Nouse, Blane Heimbach, Kyle Reinhardt and Ryan Taylor.

Heats for the 26-car field went to Esh, Zearfoss and Ely with Taylor taking the consolation.

Local driver Trent Brenneman took control of the super late model feature at the start over third starter Matt Parks.

After winning the first three late model features of the season in a row, Mike Lupfer started fifth in the field and was working well to get himself up to third on the second lap.

And then on lap six Lupfer took second from Parks and immediately began gaining on the leader.

Lupfer cruised by Brenneman on the eighth lap with Parks following him into second.

And with Parks getting a huge run off of the fourth corner onto the frontstretch he was able to draw inside Lupfer as the pair raced into the first corner.

However Lupfer didn’t give an inch and when he turned the car to work into one the pair made hard and violent contact with Lupfer’s car careening head-on into the outside wall.

Parks never stopped and went on to assume command with veteran Gary Stuhler racing fifth for the restart.

Both Stuhler and last week’s winner Jason Schmidt were running well and Stuhler drove into third on the 17th lap with Schmidt working the outside lane behind him.

And then as the pair blasted onto the backchute on the 18th lap Schmidt drew to Stuhler’s outside and the pair made contact with Stuhler spinning backwards into the third turn before getting plowed by a surging Dylan Yoder who was taking a page out of Schmidt’s high line groove.

With both of those cars also out for the night, Parks went on to pick up the win over Mitch Hack, Schmidt, Brenneman and Bryan Bernheisel.

Sixth through 10th went to Tim Smith Jr., Brian Tavenner, Tim Wilson, Derrick Casner and Andy Haus.

Heats for the 29 cars in action went to Yoder, Parks and Hack.

Devin Hart started on the pole of the econo late model feature and held sway for the first 10 laps of the 18 lap main before giving up the point to point leader Eric Irvin.

Hart struggled late in the race and fell to third at the finish while Andrew Yoder was second.

Troy Miller and Tim Fedder completed the top five.

Heats went to Andrew Yoder and Shaun Miller.

Fourth starter Jason Zook drove into the lead of the 15-lap xtreme stock main at the start and was followed by Deron Henry.

But previous winner Jason Davis had designs on the victory and took over second on the fifth lap before pressuring for the win.

He fell short however with Pete Leister finishing third followed by Bill Powell and Henry.

DIETRICH PREPS FOR WORLD OF OUTLAWS, CATCHES MONTIETH FOR THRILLING LINCOLN WIN;

Halligan claims first career win in 358 sprints; Chad Earnst best of Central PA Legends

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 5/9/2015 – “Bring on the Outlaws next week!”

So exclaimed Danny Dietrich after claiming his first Lincoln win of the season in the 25-lap Prospect Metal and Used Auto Parts Night feature event at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

For the second straight week, Dietrich and points leader Brian Montieth thrilled the crowd with another wild ride through lapped traffic through the first 22 non-stop laps. But this time, it was Dietrich turning the tables on Montieth to score his 24th career Lincoln win.

Montieth started tenth and worked his way through the field to grab the lead from polesitter and race-long leader Steve Owings exiting turn two of lap 15. It looked like Montieth was en-route to his fourth win in as many races (counting Williams Grove the last two Fridays and Lincoln last Saturday), but Dietrich, who started 12th, reeled him in as the two raced through heavy lapped traffic with five laps to go.

At the start-finish line to complete lap 22, Dietrich pulled alongside the Premier Auto Works #21, with electronic scoring showing Dietrich with a .001-second lead. That’s when the event’s only caution came out for Cory Hass, who spun in turn two of lap 23.

“It didn’t really matter who was leading at the time,” said Dietrich, “I got really good through the middle down there and able to keep my drive off turn two. That’s where I made all my passes early because everyone is so fast around the top.”

On the final restart, Dietrich held off Montieth, crossing 1.19 seconds ahead at the checkered.

“We’re gonna try,” answered Dietrich when asked whether he and Montieth could beat the World of Outlaws when they invade Lincoln this coming Wednesday, “It’s been good to see the 48 or 21 sitting here...or anybody from this area. Right now, we’ve been so fast and consistent, the two of us. But I hope some of the other guys can get going because we’re going to need a little help I think.”

Owings hung on for third, with Niki Young and 11th-starting Lance Dewease completing the top five. Rounding out the top ten were Robbie Kendall, 22nd-starting Alan Krimes, Hunter Mackison, Austin Hogue, and 16th-starting Adam Wilt.

Heats for the 36 410 sprinters were won by Montieth, Kendall, Hogue, and Danny Dietrich, with Aaron Ott winning the consolation.

Jeff Halligan started on the pole and led every lap of the 20-lap 358 sprint car feature to score his first career sprint car win by 1.68 seconds over outside front row starter Lucas Montgomery, who ran second the entire way. Friday night Williams Grove winner Brie Hersey advancing from sixth starting spot to cross third at the end. Kyle Denmyer and Cole Young completed the top five.

Heats for the 25 358 Sprinters were won by Michael Hamer, Montgomery, and Young.

East Berlin’s Chad Earnst claimed his first career Lincoln win in the 15-lap Central PA Legends feature. He started fourth and assumed the outside front row when Chis Spidle spun in turn two of the initial start. He grabbed the lead on the restart from polesitter Jacob Feltch and was scored the leader of every lap.

Wild racing in behind saw Duane Watson cross second, but he was later disqualified after a post-race inspection, handing second to Feltch, with 14th-starting Mason Chaney credited with third, Bob Stough fourth, and Chad Glatfelter fifth.

Heats for the 28 Legends were won by Scott Haudeshell, Stough, and Earnst, with Rick Hartwig winning the consolation.

Montieth Wins Second In A Row In Williams Grove Outlaw Tune Up,

Hershey Wins Second Career In 358s

5/8/15

Mechanicsburg – Brian Montieth of Phoenixville won the Williams Grove Speedway 410 sprint car feature for the second week in a row on Friday night in what was a tune-up event for next week’s invasion by the World of Outlaws.

In the 20-lap 358 sprint main it was lady racer Brie Hershey that took the win after surviving a furious charge to steal the lead on a restart with two laps to go.

Don Kreitz Jr. and Montieth shared the front row for the start of the 410 sprint main and Kreitz took the lead immediately as the field raced out of the fourth corner to the green flag.

Kreitz was never able to shake Montieth in the early going and as he entered the backmarkers by lap five the man they call “The Edge” was living up to his name, tearing around the high cushion in pursuit of Kreitz.

The pair of leaders was nose to tail as they crossed the stripe to score lap six and the next time around the roles were reversed with Montieth ahead at the line.

Through heavy traffic the pair played a high-speed game of cat and mouse with Kreitz leading again as the eighth lap was scored.

Montieth settled back for a lap or two before mounting his final challenge and again the pair was racing nose to tail, working the backmarkers on the slickening track.

Montieth finally got the lead for good from Kreitz on the 11th tour and then he began pulling away in what was a non-stop event.

During the later stages Kreitz fell off the winning pace but did finish second while Montieth took the $4,000, 25-lap payday.

Brent Marks rode home third followed by Danny Dietrich and Jim Siegel.

Sixth through 10th went to Greg Hodnett, Tim Glatfelter, Kyle Reinhart, Cory Haas and fast timer Brock Zearfoss.

Heats went to Montieth, Reinhart and Kreitz who also earned the pole by winning the dash.

Austin Hogue took the B Main and Zearfoss set quick time over the 31 cars with a time of 17.445 seconds.

Hershey led all 20 laps of the 358 sprint main after the first and second rows were swapped after a failed initial start.

Hershey took the green that held from the second spot and saw Chase Dietz race into second on the third circuit.

It seemed Hershey was home free until a final caution flag with two laps to go regrouped the field, placing Dietz tight on her bumper with Amy Ott restarting third.

And when green reappeared Hershey had Dietz wedged to her inside while Ott blasted to the outside as the trio bolted into the first corner.

But Hershey proved unshakable and kept her line to hold off the challenges and pick up her second career Williams Grove Speedway limited sprint win.

Dietz ended up second followed by Matt Campbell, Adrian Shaffer and Ott, who slipped backward after her attempt at the win.

Heats went to Dietz, Matt Campbell and Adrian Shaffer.

Williams Grove Speedway Saturday Night Series Issues Math Fact Challenge To Local Students.

The future of automobile racing is with the youth of today. Williams Grove Speedway management is presenting a program to the students of Monroe and South Mountain elementary schools. This exciting series, named Math Fact Challenge, combines mathematics and racing.

The students at each school will complete 10 minutes of online math a night to complete one lap. Students up to second grade use www.coolmath.com for their challenge. Students in grades three through fifth will work with www.firstinmath.com.

After the students complete ten laps they will receive a $10 Williams Grove Speedway gift certificate for use on two Saturday Night Series dates. The main night will be June 6th for the School’s Out special. Families that cannot make the night can use their certificate on July 18th for the popular Kids Night. Children 12 and under are free at Williams Grove allowing parents to use the certificates for adult admission of just two dollars.

South Mountain Elementary recently completed their challenge with 45 students taking part. As part of their May Fair, Saturday Night Series 358 Late Model driver Daulton Bigler attended the festivities to hand out certificates to the students.

Monroe Elementary began their challenge in April with 410 Sprint Car driver Nicole Bower meeting with the students. Monroe is completing their Math Fact Challenge. On May 15th Super Sportsman driver Steve Wilbur will present the students with their certificates.

Williams Grove Speedway continues their support of bringing young families to racing through the Saturday Night Series. Each week adult admission remains at the affordable price of six dollars with children 12 and under free. Last week, on opening night, a large crowd was on hand, the majority consisting of families.

This Saturday the Saturday Night Series presents the Blazer’s Body Shop Super Sportsman, Credit Connection 358 Late Models and Aquafun Pools Street Stocks.

For Smith, the $3,500 win was his third at the track and fourth overall this season in 360 sprint car competition at the wheel of the Mach 1 Chassis No. 1. Aaron Ott of East Berlin was the night’s Fast Tees Fast Qualifier over the 32-car field with a lap time of 17.308.

Steve Campbell of Danville won his first race of the season in record-setting fashion in the 25-lap super late model feature. Campbell’s 46th career late model win at the speedway was a new track record for the distance in a time of 9:02.20.

Kyle Bachman and Nathan Long of Selinsgrove see-sawed for the lead for several laps before Bachman came away with his first win of the year in the 15-lap pro stock feature.

Selinsgrove Speedway will hold the Max Media Pack The Track Night this Saturday, May 9, featuring $5 general admission for adults and students for a four division racing show of 360 sprints, late models, pro stocks, and roadrunners at 7 p.m. Max Media will be hosting a tailgating party 4-6 p.m. at the main gate with music, games and prizes prior to the start of the racing program.

Second-place starter Robbie Stillwaggon drove into the lead at the start of the sprint car feature and was chased by third-place starter Josh Weller. Polesitter Mark Smith lost some ground on the start but kept the leaders in his sights.

The caution flag unfurled on lap four when Jason Shultz’s car developed a flat tire. On the restart, Stillwaggon continued to set the pace while Smith cleared Weller’s car for the second position. The race was stopped on lap eight for a four-car melee at the end of the backstretch in which Shultz’s car flipped over. Cody Keller, Ryan Kissinger, and Tyler Ross were also involved in the incident. All drivers escaped injury.

By the midway point of the race, Stillwaggon and Smith were setting a blistering pace through traffic with Weller, eighth-place starter Davie Franek, and fourth-place starter Aaron Ott in close pursuit.

With five laps to race, Stillwaggon and Smith diced their way through traffic. Entering turn one on the 27th circuit, Smith made the winning pass using the high line. Once in front of the pack, Smith cruised to a 1.4 second margin of victory over Stillwaggon, Ott, 22nd-place starter TJ Stutts, and Franek.

Outside front row starter Kenny Trevitz outdueled polesitter Tony Adams for the early lead in the super late model main event following three attempts to get the race started. On the second circuit, fourth-place starter Steve Campbell horsepowered his way into the second spot and started to reel in Trevitz.

Campbell made the winning pass by Trevitz using the inside lane coming off turn four on the fifth lap. By lap 10, however, sixth-place starter Matt Cochran advanced to second and started to show a lot of speed. Late in the race, Cochran closed in on Campbell at a brisk pace with last week’s winner and eighth-place starter Dave Zona racing third.

At the checkered flag, Campbell was victorious by just .96 of a second over Cochran, Zona, Trevitz, and fifth-place starter Jim Yoder. Following the two initial caution flags, the race went non-stop for 25 laps in a record time of 9:02.203.

In the pro stock feature, third-place starter Kyle Bachman darted into the lead and was chased by polesitter Dave Brouse Jr. for the first lap until fifth-place starter Nathan Long drove into the runner-up position. Long quickly caught Bachman and made a pass for the lead on lap five when Bachman’s car drifted high in turns one and two.

Long set the pace with Bachman in striking distance until Long’s car developed a mechanical issue and rolled to a stop in turn four. Bachman inherited the lead at this point and had to fend off two-time winner and sixth-place starter Andrew Shoop as the two see-sawed for the lead lap after lap.

Bachman narrowly held off Shoop for the win by a mere .20 of a second as the two drivers raced side-by-side coming off turn four for the checked flag. AJ Stroup, Derrick Garman, and Curtis Lawton rounded out the top five.

MONTIETH CARRIES STERNER CEMENT COLORS TO THRILLING WIN IN STERNER MEMORIAL;

Rohrbaugh holds off Hammaker in “358” sprint feature; Zimmerman tenth to first in All-American Outlaws

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 5/2/2015 – Intense. That was the operative word to describe the 33-lap, $6,900-to-win 12th Annual Weldon Sterner Memorial at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

And standing in victory lane for his third Lincoln win of the year and second win in two nights was Brian Montieth, who eats intensity for breakfast.

“There wasn’t’ much room anywhere, and we weren’t actually very good there at the end. I was worried, and tried looking at the scoreboard, but there was way too much stuff going on,” said Montieth after scoring his 47th career Lincoln win, “I was trying to run defensive and be offensive the whole time. Running first here sort-of sucks. It’s always better running second except when you get in that kind of lapped traffic.”

The win ended another storybook night for the Weldon Sterner Memorial, with the Jerry Parrish team carrying the Sterner Cement logo on the top wing of the car normally numbered 21.

Time trials and an inversion at the front of the field put Montieth seventh for the start alongside fast time trailer Greg Hodnett. Those two battled for position in the early stages of the race, with previous race winner and polesitter J.J. Grasso leading the first 14 laps.

The only caution of the race came out for Jim Siegel and Glenndon Forsythe, who got together in turn four of lap three.

The last 30 laps went non-stop, with the leaders racing through heavy lapped traffic from lap 11 on. That’s when things began to change. Danny Dietrich was the first to make his move, catching Robbie Kendall for second on lap 12, with Montieth following on his heels into third. On the next lap, Montieth got around Dietrich for the runner-up spot. Two laps later, Montieth took the lead for good. But Dietrich, who caught Grasso on lap 16, wouldn’t let Montieth get away.

“I have to say I don’t even remember it,” answered Montieth when asked about the pass for the lead, “I was too busy trying to hit marks and trying not to screw anybody up or wad myself up.”

Those two fought through lapped traffic the remainder of the race, with Dietrich closing on Montieth several times, only to have Montieth make slider after slider to put lapped cars in between. Despite 30 non-stop laps, Montieth’s final margin of victory was a mere half-second.

“Danny tried choosing a line and make that pass…toward the end there the middle had a lot of rubber, and it helps with some of those slide jobs driving through the corners,” said the Phoenixville points leader, “This is probably one of the harder intense races I’ve ever driven here.”

“Not much excites me, and my heart was beating,” said car owner Jerry Parrish, “Brian’s the most determined driver behind the wheel. I know Danny was back there licking his chops waiting for a lapped car to choke him up and take advantage. He ran good too. I’m glad we’re standing here. Honestly, this is what exciting racing is about right here at THIS track.”

Third through fifth were Grasso, Hodnett, and Kendall, with Brent Marks, Alan Krimes, Tim Glatfelter, Niki Young, and Freddie Rahmer completing the top ten.

Fast time in time trials over the 30-car field was set by Hodnett with a one-lap time of 13.164-seconds (102.552 MPH). Heats for the 410 sprinters were won by Glatfelter, Scott Fisher, and Grasso, with Nicole Bower winning the consolation.

Jeff Rohrbaugh moved into sole possession of second place on the all-time Lincoln 358 sprint car win list with his 12th career win in their 20-lap feature event.

Rohrbaugh started started eighth and found himself the leader after getting together with polesitter and race-long leader Kody Lehman on turn two of lap 17. Lehman spun out, collecting sixth-place Cody Fletcher and Dylan Welsh. Rohrbaugh never stopped, and assumed the race lead for the restart.

Rohrbaugh held off Lincoln and Central PA point series leader Doug Hammaker by 1.25 seconds at the end, with Matt Campbell, Chris Frank, and Ryan Wilson rounding out the top five.

Heats for the 30 358 Sprinters were won by Hammaker, Jordon Givler, and Frank, with Cody Fairchok winning the consolation.

Pasadena, Maryland’s Kurt Zimmerman came from tenth starting spot to score his fourth career Lincoln win in the 20-lap All-American Outlaw feature.

Fred and Justin Cullum crossed second and third, followed by Rick Hulson and Bryan Green.

Heats for the 17 All American Outlaws were won by Green and Justin Cullum.

Next Saturday night, May 9th, it will be PROSPECT METAL & USED AUTO PARTS NIGHT featuring the Lawrence Chevrolet 410 Sprints, Keizer Aluminum Wheels 358 Sprints, & Central PA Legends. In addition, it will be Dover Elementary Night.

PRS 2015 – Racing through a new decade with a new attitude! Port Royal Speedway

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

Buckwalter, Schmidt And Waters Claim Port Royal Features

5/2/15

Port Royal – Steve Buckwalter held off Lucas Wolfe to win the 410 sprint car feature Saturday night at Port Royal Speedway to score his second career victory at the oval.

In the 22-lap super late model main Jason Schmidt of Lewistown powered to his first ever division win at the track, holding off the furious charges of Matt Parks and Dylan Yoder.

And in the 18-lap 305 sprint feature local driver Jake Waters took the victory on his birthday.

Buckwalter started third in the 25-lap 410 sprint main and made quick work of the front row on the start, driving by Blane Heimbach and Rick Lafferty in the first and second turns to take the lead on the backstretch.

Lafferty tried coming back on Buckwalter after he got control but repeated low dives in the first turn proved unsuccessful for the defending track champion.

A restart on the fifth lap found Heimbach in third and eighth starter Lucas Wolfe up to fifth.

The running order was the same with nine away when another caution flag regrouped the field but this time Wolfe went to work when action resumed, as did Heimbach.

Both drivers advanced a spot at the front on the 10th circuit and Wolfe still wasn’t done.

He motored by Lafferty on the 11th tour and then went into second over Heimbach with 12 laps to go.

Wolfe methodically started cutting down Buckwalter’s advantage of some 2.5 seconds lap after lap after assuming second but after narrowing the margin to a half-second, he was no longer able to close.

Instead, Buckwalter maintained his lead and pulled it back out to one second before the finish.

Wolfe was second followed by Heimbach, Lafferty and Ryan Taylor.

Sixth through 10th went to Doug Esh, Logan Wagner, Dylan Cisney, Davey Sammons and Kevin Nouse.

Heats went to Taylor, Wolfe and Lafferty.

Jason Schmidt started second in the late model main and took the lead over Waylon Wagner at the start.

But back in the pack several heavy hitters were working their way to the front in an effort to battle for the victory.

Matt Parks began the race in sixth and blasted into second on the third tour before starting what would be a continuous pursuit of an unshakable Schmidt.

Parks just kept getting higher and higher around the track, at times glancing off the outside rail as he searched for a way around the leader.

And then on the 14th lap seventh starter Dylan Yoder took over third from Tim Wilson and he too began closing in for the front spots.

During the last eight laps the front four cars of Schmidt, Parks, Yoder and ninth starter Nick Dickson raced with the same straightaway of one another, working through traffic to the finish.

Schmidt persevered to take the win by. .663 seconds over Parks, Yoder, Dickson and Wilson.

Sixth through 10th went to Mike Lupfer, Tim Smith Jr., Derrick Casner, Trent Brenneman and Lindsay Barton.

Heats went to Wilson, Smith Jr. and Yoder.

Jake Waters drove to his birthday win in the 305 sprints for his second career triumph at the oval.

Waters was the class of the field throughout the affair, staying ahead of Bill Jones Jr. to the finish.

James Pryde, Zach Newlin and Randy Kaylor rounded out the top five.

Sixth through 10th went to Sean Kirkpatrick, Nathan Gramley, Jeff Miller, Marcus Defreitas and Reed Thompson.

Miller went to the rear after bringing out the caution flag while running sixth on the eighth tour and then came blasting back through the field to end up eighth at the finish.

Heats went to Erin Statler, Jones and Cale Reigle.

Montieth And Hammaker Split Williams Grove Sprint Mains

5/1/15

Mechanicsburg – Brian Montieth of Phoenixville won his first Williams Grove Speedway sprint car feature of the year on Friday night after taking the lead from Pat Cannon on the 10th lap.

Montieth then went on to lead the final 16 circuits to take home $3,600 plus another $160 in lap money for the victory.

Doug Hammaker became the third and final leader in the 358 sprint feature to take home the checkers in that division to close the night.

Second starter Cannon took the lead when action began in the 410 sprint main over Tim Glatfelter with fourth starter Montieth running third on the first lap.

Montieth and Glatfelter went back and forth in a spirited battle for second for a few laps before Montieth finally got the spot with five away.

And then he set his sights on Cannon, who began working the backmarkers on the seventh tour.

Cannon could only maintain staying ahead of Montieth until the fourth corner of the 10th lap when Montieth went out front for good.

Over the last half of the race, fifth starter Alan Krimes surged to the front, motoring by the competition while cruising around the bottom side of the speedway.

He took third with 11 laps to go and then got Cannon for second with seven remaining.

However he was far behind the leader at that point and failed to close the gap during the final stages and even a lone caution flag with two laps to go failed to produce a race for the win as Montieth streaked away for the victory.

Cannon ran a good race to finish third followed by 12th starter Greg Hodnett and eighth starter Brent Marks.

Sixth through 10th went to Lance Dewease, Lucas Wolfe, Glatfelter, Mark Smith and Brock Zearfoss.

Heats went to Marks, Krimes and Danny Dietrich.

Adrian Shaffer took the lead at the start of the 20-lap 358 sprint main and was holding a healthy lead on the 11th tour when disaster struck as he worked the backmarkers.

He had run up on Russell Hammaker and CJ Quirk who were jockeying for position on the backchute and when the pair couldn’t decide what lines they were taking Shaffer made contact as he tried to get around them, forcing him to spin the car against the inside wall.

That handed the lead to fourth starter Kevin Nouse who would lead until the 17th tour.

By that time Doug Hammaker had driven from fourth on the restart to second place using the inside lane and he went out front using the same lane to record the payday.

Nouse settled for second followed by Matt Campbell, Chandler Leiby and Brad McClelland.

Sixth through 10th went to Kody Lehman, Rich Eichelberger, Chase Dietz, Matt Findley and Scott Fisher.

Heats went to Lehman, McClelland and Shaffer.

Joining the 358-360 sprint cars on the racing card will be the super late models and pro stocks. Track gates will open at 5 p.m.

For the tenth consecutive year, the Gunn Memorial will feature a 30-lap race between the traveling URC 360 sprint cars and the track’s weekly Mach 1 Chassis 358-360 sprint cars. The race will pay $3,500 to win and $225 to start out of a $15,000-plus purse. Time trials, heats, and a B-Main will be the format for setting the 24-car starting field for the Gunn Memorial.

The tribute race is run each year to honor the memory of the late race track promoter Jack Gunn, who operated Selinsgrove, Williams Grove, Penn National, and Hagerstown Speedways during his career and brought mid-state dirt track racing to national prominence in the 1970’s.

The Gunn Memorial became a URC-sanctioned challenge race between 358 and 360 sprint car drivers in 2006, when Heimbach took the victory as well as in the 2008 and 2012 editions of the race. Calaman (2007); Trevor Lewis of Upper Black Eddy (2009, 2010); Shane Stewart of Indianapolis, Ind. (2011); JJ Grasso of Pedricktown, N.J.

Darrah Has Skills To Pay Bills For Whopping Weikert All Stars Port Royal Win!

4/25/15

Port Royal – Cody Darrah of Red Lion made a triumphant return to Port Royal Speedway on Saturday Night to claim nearly $20,000 in the 12th running of the prestigious All Star Circuit of Champions Sprints Bob Weikert Memorial.

In an emotional victory lane ceremony, the former Kasey Kahne Racing driver credited Tony Stewart for the initiative he is putting into the All Stars as the clubs new owner while he also noting his appreciation of winning in front of a Pennsylvania crowd again, with his family all around him after spending several seasons touring across the nation.

The victory was the third of Darrah’s career at the track and it came after several tense moments during the 40-lap Weikert A Main.

In taking the checkers, Darrah became just the second All Star touring driver to claim a win at the historic oval over the Pennsylvania Posse drivers in a history that dates back to 1981.

The initial start of the feature event was called back when Danny Dietrich got sideways in the first corner as the green flag unfurled, making contact with pre-race favorite Greg Hodnett.

Dietrich, aboard a replica Weikert’s Livestock No. 29 sprinter, and defending event winner Hodnett were done for the nigh.

When action resumed, second starter Darrah and polesitter Brent Marks displayed awesome high-speed acrobatics as they repeatedly pulled slide jobs on one another to gain control over the first two laps.

Marks would lead the first lap at the line with Darrah going out front at the line with two circuits completed after a daring and dangerous run at Marks as the pair shot through the fourth turn that saw the two drive toward the outside wall as they raced inches apart, both refusing to surrender the position.

Marks went back at Darrah in the first corner after crossing the line and swooped low to try a pass only to have Sheldon Haudenschild instead capitalize and motor by into second.

The front runners entered the backmarkers on the seventh loop and that’s when Marks reclaimed second with a big turn two slide job on Haudenschild that saw Sheldon give Marks a sender as the Myerstown driver slid up in front to take the line away.

From there Marks began trying to keep pace with Darrah as the leader continued to pile up lap money at the clip of $100 per lap.

During a caution for a stopped Steve Buckwalter on the 16th lap the race went red for a fuel stop and when action returned Marks took a shot at Darrah deep in the first turn.

But Darrah ran his momentum through the turns to pull back around Marks as the duo raced onto the backstretch before again entering traffic with 18 laps to go.

Darrah worked heavy and hectic lapped traffic during the last half of the race, pulling slide jobs on some and slingshots on others to work around the backmarkers and disaster nearly struck with four laps to go when he made heavy contact with Caleb Helms as the pair raced onto the frontstretch.

The contact send Helms hard into the outside wall although he escaped injury.

And then Darrah jetted away to the finish for the win that included the posted $15,000 winner’s share plus another $3,900 in lap money.

And when added in, an additional $100 for winning his heat race earlier in the night made his total event take an even $19,000.

Marks was happy with his second place run and said his race with Darrah early when the pair swapped the lead repeatedly was quite enjoyable.

After starting 12th, Dave Blaney blasted through the pack to pass his brother Dale for third on the 15th lap, where he would finish the night on the podium.

Dale Blaney ended up fourth with Ryan Smith finishing fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Aaron Ott, Lucas Wolfe, Brock Zearfoss and Lance Dewease.

Wolfe took home the $200 Hard Charger Award for his run from 19th to eighth.

Dave Blaney pocketed the $350 Raymond Jacobs Fast Time Award after turning in a lap of 15.909 seconds in time trials over the 44-car field.

Heats, worth $100 each, went to Ryan Smith, Marks, Dale Blaney, Dave Ely and Darrah,

Marks took another $100 for claiming the dash while Lance Dewease won the B Main.

Nate Snyder was honored with a $500 award in honor of late speedway president Gerald Clark as the first non-qualifer.

Tim Fedder of Newport won the first econo late model feature of his career in a crash-plagued event.

Eric Irvin was second followed by Andrew Yoder, Shaun Miller and Jared Fulkroad.

Twin heats went to Devin Hart and Troy Miller.

Jason Davis won the xtreme stock feature event to close the night over a hard charging Pete Leister with Jason Zook finishing third.

Port Royal Weikert Memorial Expands To Two-Day Show In 2016!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

4/25/15

Port Royal – The 2016 Bob Weikert Memorial at Port Royal Speedway will be bigger and better than ever in conjunction with the Weikert family.

Oval officials and the Weikert family announced an expanded version of the prestigious race at the 2015 event on Saturday night.

The new format and program is slated to take place over the Memorial Day holiday weekend next season, May 28 and 29, 2016.

“You all be here next year, pack your coolers and your campers and we’re gonna’ have some damn fun!”

Those were the words Todd Weikert exclaimed as he broke the news to the crowd on hand for the 12th running of the race on Saturday.

The new two-day format opens up significant possibilities for promotion of the event with details still to be determined.

But any way you look at it, the 2016 Bob Weikert Memorial is going to be the sprint car event of the holiday weekend and one of the biggest of the season anywhere and Port Royal will be the place to be.

“This expansion of dad’s race is just the logical next step that we wanted to take with Port Royal to honor my dad in a way that is most fitting,” said Todd Weikert Saturday night.

“My dad was always about doing things bigger and better and being proud of what you do in racing and in life and that’s what we are trying for with this big program.”

“My dad would love this,” Weikert said.

Details regarding this big event will be ironed out in the coming months and released upon their completion.

SMITH MAKES MID-PACK CHARGE FOR SECOND 360 SPRINT WIN; ZONA STOPS RINE’S WINNING STREAK IN LATE MODELS; SHOOP CRUISES TO SECOND PRO STOCK VICTORY; FOWLER BECOMES THIRD DIFFERENT ROADRUNNER WINNER

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Mark Smith of Sunbury started Saturday night’s 25-lap 360 sprint car feature at Selinsgrove Speedway in the 10th position and made a late-race pass by Jason Shultz of Carlisle for his second win of the season at the Snyder County oval.

The $2,000 victory at the wheel of the Mach 1 Chassis house car was Smith’s 13th career at the track in 358-360 sprint car competition.

Dave Zona of Montrose held off a last-ditch effort by two-time winner Jeff Rine of Danville for his first win of the season in the 25-lap super late model feature.

Andrew Shoop of Mifflintown won his second race of the year in the 15-lap pro stock feature, while John Fowler Jr. of Montandon scored his first win of the season in the 12-lap roadrunner race.

Selinsgrove Speedway will present the 35th annual Jack Gunn Memorial for 360 sprint cars sanctioned by the United Racing Club at 7 p.m. Saturday, May 2. The 30-lap tribute race will pay $3,500 to win and will include time trials as part of the qualifying format. The super late models and pro stocks will also be on the racing card. Track gates will open at 5 p.m.

At the start of the sprint car feature, third-place starter Michael Walter got turned sideways in turn four and collected 16th-place starter Mallie Shuster. When the race restarted, original fourth-place starter Jason Shultz drove into the lead with seventh-place starter TJ Stutts in pursuit.

With five laps completed, Shultz and Stutts led second-place starter Derek Locke, polesitter Ryan Kissinger, and sixth-place starter Larry Kelleher in the top five spots. At the lap eight marker, 10th-place starter Mark Smith dueled with Stutts for the runner-up position. Smith eventually secured second on the 12th lap.

In the final laps of the race, Smith caught Shultz in traffic and made the winning pass using the inside lane in turn one on the 20th circuit. Smith stretched his lead as Stutts began to pressure Shultz for the runner-up position. At the checkered flag, Smith was victorious by a mere second over Stutts, Shultz, 15th-place starter Chuck Hebing, and 12th-place starter Davie Franek.

Polesitter Chad Hollenbeck powered into the lead at the start of the late model feature. Hollenbeck was trailed by second-place starter Meade Hahn for the first two laps before third-place starter Dave Zona took over the runner-up position.

Hollenbeck continued to lead the race until the sixth lap when Zona made the winning pass on the backstretch. At the halfway point, Zona was setting the pace in front of sixth-place starter Jim Yoder, ninth-place starter Matt Cochran, 12th-place starter Jeff Rine, and 14th-place starter Kyle Harder.

With nine laps to race, Rine advanced to second and began to reel in Zona in traffic. Dylan Yoder, who started 13th, horsepowered his way into the third spot with five laps remaining. On the final circuit, Zona took the high line around lapped traffic and edged out Rine by just .28 of a second for the victory. D. Yoder, Hardy, and Cochran completed the top five.

Polesitter Matt Hornberger led the first lap of the pro stock feature until fourth-place starter Andrew Shoop made the winning pass in turn two on the second circuit. On the sixth circuit, third-place starter AJ Stroup advanced to second and set his sights on the leader. Despite several caution flags, Shoop kept his racer out in front of the pack and posted a .67 of a second margin of victory over Stroup, Nathan Long, Matt Hornberger, and Kyle Bachman.

Front row starter Ricky Buss escaped injury when his roadrunner went into a series of barrel rolls on the backstretch at the start of the main event. When the race resumed, third-place starter John Fowler Jr. pulled into the lead and held off fifth-place starter and last week’s winner Bob Bussey by .24 of a second for the victory. Dustin Snook, Jeremy Kline, and Brandon Shultz completed the top five.

J.J. GRASSO HOLDS OFF A CHARGING MONTIETH FOR SECOND CAREER LINCOLN 410 SPRINT WIN;

Shaffer makes another last turn pass for 358 sprint win; Chad Glatfelter best of Central PA Legends

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 4/25/2015 – A close call in turn four of lap 21 turned out to be the winning move for J.J. Grasso en route to his second Lincoln career win on Saturday night.

Grasso, who led every lap from his outside front row starting spot, was bogged down by side-by-side racing lapped traffic when he felt the heat from 11th-starting Lincoln points leader Brian Montieth.

“We had some tense moments there when I was getting to the lapped cars. I didn’t know how close anyone was getting to me, but I saw the 21 on the board and I had to make a move,” said Grasso in victory lane, “I had ‘em running two-wide in front of me and I couldn’t get by them.”

Grasso and Steve Owings actually made contact as Grasso was splitting lapped cars to stay in front. Owings saved it, but dropped to the infield with two laps to go.

“I feel a little bit bad for the 21A there, because I kind of scared him up. I was hoping I wasn’t gonna wreck, but I felt like I had to do it.”

“This is huge,” said Grasso, “I want to thank my dad. He’s put a lot of money in this, along with BK Trucking and C&B Mushrooms. This is unbelievable. We were quick from the get-go. We were terrible last week, but my dad and the crew worked on it hard, and again tonight in the pits.

Grasso’s final margin of victory was 1.53 seconds over Montieth, with Tyler Ross scoring his best-ever finish in third, Cory Haas fourth, and defending track champ Alan Krimes fifth. Rounding out the top ten were Freddie Rahmer, Adam Wilt, 16th-starting Jim Siegel, Kyle Moody, and 20th-starting Austin Hogue.

Heats for the 33 410 sprinters were won by Haas, Montieth, Grasso, and Freddie Rahmer, with Brandon Rahmer winning the consolation.

For the second time this season, Adrian Shaffer made a last turn pass to win a 358 sprint car feature.

Shaffer gave car owner Stewart Smith a 52nd birthday present by making a perfect last turn slider to get by Chris Arnold and score the win.

A disappointed Arnold crossed second, with tenth-starting Chandler Leiby, Doug Hammaker, and Kevin Nouse completing the top five. Sixth through tenth were Matt Campbell, 21st-starting Jeff Rohrbaugh, early race leader John Braim, 19th-starting Todd Rittenhouse, Jr., and Tyler Esh.

Heats for the 32 358 Sprinters were won by Esh, Leiby, Nouse, and Doug Hammaker, with Rohrbaugh winning the consolation.

Chad Glatfelter started on the outside front row, beat polesitter Harlon Leppo to the stripe to complete lap one, and led every lap of the 15-lap Central PA Legends feature. Leppo spun exiting turn four of the final lap, and was credited with a 17th place finish.

Taking advantage of Leppo’s bad luck was opening night winner Bob Stough, who ran third the entire race until Leppo’s final lap misfortune.

Third through fifth were Chad Earnst, Bill Diehl, and Mason Chaney.

Heats for the 23 Legends were won by Leppo, Chad Glatfelter, and Chaney.

Next Saturday night, April 25th, it is the 12TH ANNUAL WELDON STERNER MEMORIAL for 410 Sprints, plus 358 Sprints and All-American Outlaws Time trials get underway for the 410 sprinters at 7:30 PM, with gates opening at 5:30 PM and hot laps getting underway at 7 PM.

Hodnett Turns Back All Stars At Williams Grove

4/24/15

Mechanicsburg – Greg Hodnett scored for the Pennsylvania Posse against the All Star Circuit of Champions Sprints on Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway, taking his first oval win of the season worth $5,000.

Hodnett turned back a strong contingent of All Stars in an event that found circuit regular Danny Holtgraver holding the pole position for the start of the 30-lap feature.

Only two laps were scored with Holtgraver in control when the races first caution flag unfurled.

On the restart Holtgraver held off the advances of Brent Marks to surge out to a comfortable lead with Danny Dietrich, Cory Haas and Hodnett in tow.

Hodnett started third in the field but fell backward on the start and nearly spun out in the second turn before settling himself.

Holtgraver entered the backmarkers on the 10th circuit followed closely by Marks, Dietrich, Hodnett and now Dale Blaney.

And for the next five circuits the front five cars raced within the same set of turns, darting through hectic traffic before all heck broke loose at the halfway point.

Holtgraver began fading and Marks capitalized to lead the 15th tour and by lap 16 Holtgraver was back to fifth with Hodnett pouncing on Dietrich for second amid a dizzying pace.

Dietrich wasn’t done, instead livened-up by Hodnett’s pass and he pushed his car higher around the oval to reclaim second as the pair dueled for the spot before Hodnett really took hold of the surface in the bottom groove to drive into control over Marks with 12 laps to go.

On the 18th lap, the front four cars stacked up top to bottom, nearly four wide in the first corner as each driver fought for control with Hodnett coming out on top in an exciting display of speed and jockeying.

But once Hodnett got into clean air he was able to check out on the field, leaving the pack to scrap for what was left of the race.

After starting 10th, Ryan Smith bolted into the top five with 10 laps to go and made inroads along with Lance Dewease before the checkers.

Hodnett was ready to see the checkers with a lap to go when a final yellow regrouped the field, forcing a green-white-checker finish in which Hodnett took the victory by .683 seconds over Dietrich.

Dale Blaney rode home third for a podium finish by the All Stars, followed by Dewease and Smith.

Sixth through 10th went to Marks, Stevie Smith, Steve Buckwalter, Cory Haas and Brock Zearfoss.

Heats for the 39-car field went to Holtgraver, Haas, Marks and Smith with Gerard McIntyre Jr. taking the B Main.

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

Hodnett set overall fast time in qualifications with a lap of 16.152 seconds, which was the fastest lap turned at the oval since the imposition of a weight rule numerous years ago. The time was the fastest turned in at the track since Sammy Swindell came in with a time of 16.175 in October of 2011.

Les Hare wired the field for the win in the 358 limited late model main event to close the night.

Cam Zeigler, Shaun Jones, Justin Ehrhart and 16th starter Wes Alleman completed the top five.

Heats went to Sam Gallagher, Alan Sagi and Ehrhart.

CUNNINGHAM WINS SECOND TIME OUT IN 358 SPRINT FEATURE AT TRAIL-WAY

HANOVER, PA (4/24/2015) – The 19 cars finished at the front again Friday night at Trail-Way Speedway.

But this time, it was J.B. Cunningham standing in victory lane.

“I sold all my stuff last year, and if I wouldn’t have, I wouldn’t be here,” said Cunningham upon exiting the Your Auto Source/Bricker’s Famous French Fries/NAPA Auto Parts #19 in victory lane, “I want to thank Don Garrett for believing in me and his sponsorship support.”

After finishing second in their first race as a team last week, Cunningham was running only his second race since 2013.

“I’m worn out,” said Cunningham, “I need to get back in shape!”

“I should have won last week,” continued Cunningham, “Isaac (Sneeringer) if fast here.”

For his part, winner of the first two races Sneeringer started ninth out of ten cars and methodically worked his way through the field to pass 2014 Central PA rookie of-the-year Wyatt Hinkle for second on lap 14.

By then, Cunningham was a half-lap ahead. The only caution of the event came out on lap 16. A lapped car between the #19 and #19z gave Cunningham the room he needed to driver to a 2.44-second win.

Third through fifth were Jeff Halligan in his first appearance of the year, Cody Fletcher, and Bill Stine.

Heats for the 10 “358” sprint cars were won by Tyler Esh and Stine.

Once he got by front row starter Brian Marriott for the lead on lap six, Cory Myers dominated the 20-lap 270cc micro-sprint feature, crossing 9.75 seconds in front of second-place Steven Cox, who came from the back after an early-race incident.

Marriott ran second until dropping off the pace on the final lap and crossing sixth.

Billy Laughman, Tim McClelland, and Joe Long, Jr. rounded out the top five.

Heats for the 18 micros were won by Cox and Myers.

Dan Furman raced to his first win of the year in the 20-lap street stock feature. Furman crossed one car length in front of teammate Craig Wagaman, with Michael Goodwin, Jeremy Stremmel and Aaron Beard completing the top five.

Wagaman was challenging Furman for the lead on lap 13 when he was struck from behind by third-place Stremmel. Stremmel was sent to the rear with Wagaman and came back through the field to finish fourth.

The lone qualifier for the ten street stocks was also won by Furman.

Shannon Weaver ended a multi-year dry spell by crossing first in a wild 15-lap limited stock feature that saw the whole top five in contention until the very end. Kyle Rohrbaugh crossed a half car length behind in second, with Robbie Carroll, Kenny Startzman, and Robert Nicklow finishing third through fifth.

Robert Wellman led the first nine laps before polesitter Robbie Carroll took the lead. Weaver caught Carroll for the front spot on lap 14, and held off Kyle Rohrbaugh at the end. Rohrbaugh passed Carroll on the last lap.

Heats for the 14 limited stocks were won by Rohrbaugh and Terry Hartlaub.

Next Friday night, May 1st, the Limited Late Models will make their long-awaited return to the famed 1/3rd mile oval on the farm. Although the 358 Sprints will be taking the night off, the Limited Stocks, Central PA Legends, Sidewinders and Penn-Mar Vintage Cars will all be on the schedule. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. and heats begin at 7:45 p.m.

The following Friday, May 8th, the Hoosier Tire Mid-Atlantic 358 Sprints will be back in action along with the Limited Stocks, Street Stocks and 600cc Micro Sprints. It will also be “York County Racing Club Night.” All card holding club members will receive $2 off the admission fee. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. and heats begin at 7:45 p.m.

Port Royal Mourns Loss Of Former President Clark

4/23/15

Port Royal – Port Royal Speedway is mourning the loss of former speedway president Gerald “Jerry” Clark.

Mr. Clark passed away Thursday morning, April 23, 2015 at the age of 93.

Clark became a fairboard member of the Juniata County Agricultural Society in 1952 and while involved in the annual Juniata County Fair in that capacity, it wasn’t until the fairboard took over weekly operation of racing at the oval in 1962 that Clark became integrally involved in conducting and guiding the speedway.

Eventually Clark became the Ag Society Fairboard president in the 1970’s and 1980’s before stepping away late in the 80’s.

Clark’s name was one that was known and respected in the region for the way he conducted not only himself but the racing facility as well.

He guided the oval and competition through a tumultuous period in the mid 1970’s when other area tracks imposed engine limits on the sprint cars.

Clark felt that direction was improper for the division and Port Royal became the “lone ranger” of sorts, opting not to restrict cubic inches.

With time, the other area tracks reversed their restrictions late in the decade while Port Royal continued on just as it had been all along, showing the wisdom in Clark’s decision making.

It was during this time that Clark also maintained the integrity of the speedway’s stock car late model division and helped to grow it as the speedplant flourished.

With this Saturday’s annual Bob Weikert Memorial for sprint cars in the offing at Port Royal, Bob Weikert’s son Todd reflected on Gerald Clark and his tenure after learning of the loss early Thursday.

“He was a great friend of my dads. My dad had a lot of respect for Jerry,” Todd Weikert said.

In 2010 Clark’s son Donald returned the Clark name to prominence at the speedway when he became president of the organization.

And in 2012 the elder Clark and his son Don were feted at the track as the annual Butch Renninger Loyalty, Dedication & Determination Award honorees.

Gerald Clark’s grandson Curt spoke about him Thrusday afternoon.

“The last time I saw him was this past Sunday and he wanted to know how the races went Saturday night,” Curt Clark said.

“His love for that place was still as strong as ever on his last days here!”

A viewing will be held Sunday evening from 6 – 8 pm at the Brown Funeral Home in Mifflintown, 100 Bridge St., with the funeral on Monday at 10 am.

RACING XTRAVAGANZA TAKING SHAPE FOR 2016

By Brad Vores

While it might be the ten months away, race fans need to mark their calendars now for Racing Xtravaganza, your Prescription for Racing Xcitement, once the dust stops flying for the 2015 season in Central Pennsylvania.

Formerly known as the Central PA Dirt Trackin’ show, New Oxford’s Scott Gobrecht has purchased the rights and assets of the 33 year old show and has big plans for race fans in 2016.

It will be a new beginning, with a new name taking place on a new date inside a new venue.

But while there are plenty of “new” things, Gobrecht’s main plan is to bring the show back to what it used to be when race cars, exhibits, booths and so much more jammed packed the building, getting race fans an up close look at what was in store for the upcoming season.

Racing Xtravaganza will be held on Saturday and Sunday, February 6 and 7, 2016 and will take place in the state of the art Utz Arena on the grounds at the York Expo Center.

Gobrecht, along with Show Organizer John Krall are busy working on many new ideas for the show as well as working with potential sponsors who will be instrumental in the success for the new show.

Race fans will once again have something to look forward to before the start of the Central Pennsylvania racing season and both Gobrecht and Krall will be doing everything in their power to bring Xcitement back to wintertime for local race fans.

A new website is currently under construction and fans will be able to check out all breaking news at www.racingxtravanganza.com.

All Stars Return To Williams Grove Friday

358 lates also in action

4/19/15

Mechanicsburg – The All Star Circuit of Champions Sprints will compete at Williams Grove Speedway this Friday, April 24 at 7:30 pm.

The event will mark the first appearance at the oval of the revived traveling group now under the guiding hand and ownership of famed NASCAR and sprint car driver Tony Stewart.

Adult general admission for this weeks All Stars show is set at just $18 with youth ages 13 – 20 admitted for just $10 while ages 12 and under are always admitted for free at Williams Grove.

This week, the Williams Grove portion of the 50/50 drawing will be donated to Med Star Dirt Track Rescue.

Med Star travels the country, providing training and seminars to local dirt track rescue crews in an effort to have every track adequately staffed and prepared for emergency situations they may face on race nights.

The All Stars and the Posse will compete in a 30-lap main event paying $5,000 to win on Friday night.

The 358 limited late models are also on the racing card.

The race will be the second leg of the 2015 Diamond Series at the track after Stevie Smith took last week’s Tommy Hinnershitz Memorial Spring Classic event to kick off the series.

Greg Hodnett has established himself as the early season point leader at the track after Friday’s program.

Down through history, the Williams Grove regulars have remained stalwart defenders of any attack on the oval’s winner’s circle by the invaders.

No All Star has ever won an All Star sanctioned race at Williams Grove Speedway.

The first All Star event ever contested at the historic oval back in 1970 was won by Bobbie Adamson.

Two All Stars shows slated last year at the track fell victim to rain.

No driver has beaten the All Stars more often at the track over the decades than Lance Dewease, who has bested the band a total of five times.

Single wins of note through the years have come with an upset by Barry Camp, a close race to the finish for Jim Siegel and a romp by Steve Buckwalter.

Time trials will set the starting grids for the April 24 All Stars racing program.

Drivers frequenting the All Stars circuit this season include perennial champions Tim Shaffer and Dale Blaney along with Chad Kemenah, Randy Hannagan, Danny Smith, Danny Holtgraver, Ryan Smith and more.

The All Stars will return to the track for a second 2015 race date on June 12.

The kickoff of the 2015 Saturday Night Series featuring the super sportsman, 358 late models and street stocks is slated for Saturday, May 2.

Wolfe Claims Port Royal All Star Weikert Tune Up

Lupfer Continues Late Model Domination, Miller Wins In 305 Sprints Fans & Track Raise $1,550 For Cancer Society On Race To Cure Cancer Night

Port Royal – Lucas Wolfe held off the challenges of Greg Hodnett on Saturday night at Port Royal Speedway to pick up the 410 sprint win in the tune-up race for next week’s All Star Circuit of Champions Bob Weikert Memorial. Mike Lupfer continued his domination in the super late model ranks by winning his third race in a row in what was the third race of the year for the division at the oval. And in the 305 sprint main, defending oval series champion Jeff Miller claimed the feature for his first win of the year.

It was Race To Cure Cancer Night at the track with a total of $1,550 being raised for the American Cancer Society including $750 as the auction price of a special pink five-gallon fuel jug that was autographed by World of Outlaws and Pennsylvania sprint car drivers.

Hodnett won the dash to start the 25-lap 410 sprint main on the pole with Danny Dietrich flanking him on the outside.

Wolfe originally lined up third for the start but a false initial start swapped the first and second rows, placing Wolfe on the pole for the new attempt at a green flag.

Sixth starter Steve Buckwalter moved forward early, taking over the second spot with five laps down and making tracks after the leader.

With Hodnett up to third on the 10th circuit, Buckwalter made a jab at the lead in the first and second turns but Wolfe was up to the challenge and moved back in front to hold control.

Seconds later Buckwalter’s mount slowed to a stop on the backchute, taking him out of contention and placing Hodnett in second.

A lapped car separated leaders on the restart and Hodnett has just disposed of the traffic when the red flag appeared with 13 laps down for a frontstretch roll by Doug Esh that also collected Blane Heimbach.

No lapped cars were between the leaders for the new green and Hodnett made a bid when action resumed by Wolfe rode the cushion through the first and second turns to blast around the slide attempt onto the backchute.

A final yellow unfurled with three laps to go for fourth place runner Ryan Taylor and Wolfe then went uncontested to the victory, which was the second of his career at the oval, worth $3,500.

Hodnett rode home second followed by Dietrich, Dave Blaney and Brent Marks.

Sixth through 10th went to Davey Sammons, Aaron Ott, Rick Lafferty, Logan Wagner and Dave Ely.

Heats went to Dietrich, Ely and Blaney with Hodnett scoring the dash and Dylan Cisney taking the consolation. Fast time was set by Hodnett with a lap of 15.495 seconds.

Polesitter Waylon Wagner led the first four laps of the 22-lap late model main before Mike Lupfer took control.

Early in the race Lupfer went three wide in the second corner to move from his sixth starting spot into third before setting his sights on leader Wagner and Trent Brenneman.

Lupfer went to the outside of Wagner for the lead in the first and second turns to get control before settling into his favored inside line to cruise to the victory.

Brenneman rode home a career best super late model finish of second followed by a surging Mitch Hack who took the spot with four laps to go.

Andy Haus and Matt Parks completed the top five with sixth through 10th going to Tim Wilson, Derrick Casner, Wagner, Bryan Bernheisel and Jason Schmidt.

Heats went to Brenneman and Bernheisel.

Jeff Miller allowed Ken Duke to lead only the first lap of the 18-lap 305 sprint main before taking over after starting second.

Miller’s pace was slowed twice over the distance but to no avail for his challengers.

Scott Ellerman crossed the line second followed by Duke, Zach Newlin and Nathan Gramley.

Heats went to Erin Statler, Ellerman and Newlin.

FRANEK WINS SPRINT CAR THRILLER OVER STUTTS; RINE REPEATS IN SUPER LATE MODELS; LONG MAKES LAST-TURN PASS FOR PRO STOCK WIN; BUSSEY RETURNS TO ROADRUNNER WINNERS CIRCLE

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Davie “No Panic” Franek of Wantage, N.J., scored a thrilling victory over TJ Stutts of Liverpool in Saturday night’s 25-lap 360 sprint car feature at Selinsgrove Speedway.

Franek and Stutts see-sawed for the lead for the last 10 laps of the race with Franek taking his first checkered flag of the season in the Franek Auto Sales No. 28F. The $2,000 victory was Franek’s ninth career at the track.

"I hope you fans enjoyed that!” said Franek in Victory Lane. “It was exciting from my seat!”

Jeff Rine of Danville made it two wins in a row in the 25-lap super late model feature. The victory marked the 93rd of Rine’s career at the track.

Nathan Long of Selinsgrove made a last-lap, final-turn pass by Kyle Bachman of Selinsgrove for his first win of the season in the 15-lap pro stock feature, while Bob Bussey of Northumberland wired the field for his win in the 12-lap roadrunner race.

Selinsgrove Speedway returns with another four division racing card of 360 sprint cars, late models, pro stocks, and roadrunners at 6 p.m. Saturday, April 25. Track gates will open at 4 p.m.

Second-place starter Davie Franek and polesitter Troy Betts dueled for the lead at the start of the sprint car feature. Franek edged out Betts for the lead at the completion of the first lap, when the caution flag waved for a double spin involving Larry Kelleher and Brad Franks in turn four.

On the restart, Franek maintained the lead with fifth-place starter TJ Stutts making a breathtaking move against the guardrail in turn four to drive by both Betts and fourth-place starter Jason Shultz for the second spot! On a lap five restart, 11th-place starter Mark Smith powered into the top five.

At the halfway point, Stutts closed in on Franek in what would turn into a suspenseful race for the lead and win. Slider after slider through the turns, Franek would reclaim the lead from Stutts. While Stutts put his car in front of Franek’s at different times on the track he was never scored as the leader of the race at the start-finish line.

Racing off turn four for the checkered flag, Franek held off Stutts’ last-ditch effort to steal the win. Franek was victorious by just .59 of a second over Stutts, Smith, Betts, and 10th-place starter Colby Womer.

Jeff Rine started on the pole and edged out second-place starter Matt Cochran for the lead at the drop of the green flag in the late model feature. Rine blistered the speedway at the front of the pack while fourth-place starter Steve Campbell kept him in his sights.

A caution flag for Hayes Mattern regroup the field on lap five. When the race resumed, Rine distanced himself from the rest of the field with Campbell trailing in second. A torrid battle for the third spot unfolded between fifth-place starter Kenny Trevitz, third-place starter Dave Zona, and Cochran. At the checkered flag, Rine posted a convincing seven-second margin of victory over Campbell, Cochran, Trevitz, and Jim Yoder.

Derrick Garman pulled into the early lead from his pole starting position and led the first lap of the pro stock feature. On the second circuit, third-place starter Kyle Bachman made an inside pass in turn one to take command of the field.

With five laps remaining, fifth-place starter Nathan Long stormed into the runner up position. Long quickly reeled in Bachman in a race for the lead. On the 11th lap, the caution flag unfurled when Tommy Slanker’s car fell off the pace.

When the race resumed, Long pressured Bachman for the lead. On the final lap, exiting the final turn, Long pulled off the winning pass using the inside line. Long’s margin over victory was a mere .28 of a second over Bachman, Andrew Shoop, AJ Stroup, and Matt Hornberger.

Polesitter Bob Bussey wired the field for his win the roadrunner race. During the first half of the race, fourth-place starter John Fowler Jr. trailed Bussey until fifth-place starter Dustin Snook took over the runner-up position.

Snook put in a last-lap bid to steal the lead and victory away from Bussey to no avail. At the finish, Bussey was victorious by .63 of a second over Snook. After the post-race inspection, however, Snook’s car was disqualified over a technicality. Fowler was credited with the second position, followed by Jeremy Kline, Brandon Shultz, and Butch Shaffer.

FORSYTHE SCORES THIRD CAREER LINCOLN WIN ON JOHN H. MYERS & SON NIGHT;

Doug Hammaker claims second career Lincoln win in 358 sprints; Kyle Martin holds off Brian Walls in Street Stocks

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 4/18/2015 – Score one for the little guys in Saturday night’s thriller at Lincoln Speedway.

Glenndon Forsythe started on the pole and claimed his first Lincoln win in more than a year (8/13/13). But he didn’t lead every lap, as four cars were still in the hunt when the event’s only caution came out as the leaders headed into turns three and four on the last lap.

Forsythe led the first 18 non-stop laps before sixth-starting Austin Hogue, driving the other Livingston Lawn Car sprinter, raced down the York racer exiting turn four in heavy lapped traffic on lap 19. Hogue led the next two laps, but couldn’t get away from Forsythe, who reclaimed the lead exiting turn two of lap 22.

As those two raced for the lead, outside front row starter Mike Bittinger and ninth-starting Alan Krimes entered the battle, with all four cars still in the hunt when the event’s only caution came out for a slowing Billy Dietrich just in front the leaders in turn four.

Forsythe withstood the final one-lap dash to the checkered, crossing just in front of Hogue, with a hard-charging Jim Siegel catching both Krimes and Bittinger for third on the final lap. Bittinger and Krimes finished fourth and fifth.

Rounding out the top ten were 12th-starting Lance Dewease, 11th-starting Brian Montieth, Adam Wilt, Cory Haas, and Kyle Moody.

Heats for the 32 410 Sprinters were won by Wilt, Krimes, Siegel, and Moody, with Brandon Rahmer winning the consolation.

Freddie Rahmer was uninjured in a heat race flip that saw him bicycle and crash hard into the fourth turn wall. The car was done for the night

Carlisle’s Doug Hammaker held onto his Central PA point series lead by claiming his second Lincoln career win in the 20-lap 358 sprint car feature.

Hammaker started third and took the lead from lady driver Ashley Cappetta on lap five. Cappetta actually led the first four laps, but a slowly-deflating left rear tire forced her to stop while running fourth with three laps to go.

Once in front, Hammaker led the rest of the way, despite the challenges of bottom-feeder Jeff Rohrbaugh and 11th-starting rim-riding Kevin Nouse over the latter stages of the race. Hammaker’s final margin of victory was .38 seconds.

Crossing fourth and fifth were opening night winner Todd Rittenhouse, Jr. and Friday night Trail-Way winner Isaac Sneeringer. Sixth through tenth were 13th-staring Adrian Shaffer, 12th-starting Matt Campbell, Chandler Leiby, 16th-starting Cody Fletcher, and polesitter Kyle Denmyer.

Heats for the 37 358 Sprinters were won by Ryan Wilson, Rohrbaugh, Todd Reed, and Nouse, with Matt Findley winning the consolation.

Kyle Martin received a tire rub from good buddy Brian Walls while crossing the finish line to win the 20-lap street stock feature. The two leaders got caught up by a lapped car while racing for the win at the line, with Walls settling for second.

Third through fifth were Ryan Smith, early race leader Chris Derr, and 11th-starting Dustin Hollinger.

Heats for the 24 Street Stocks were won by Martin, Brian Walls, and Jason Gessaman.

Next Saturday night, April 25th, it is YORK COUNTY RACING CLUB (YCRC) NIGHT with all card-carry members receiving $2 off general admission. The 410 Sprints and 358 Sprints will be joined by the Central PA Legends in the 3-division show. Race time is 7 PM, with gates opening at 5 PM and hot laps getting underway at 6:30 PM.

Smith Takes Over For Marks To Win Williams Grove Tommy Spring Classic

Paul Miller wins first sportsman show of Grove season

4/17/15

Mechanicsburg – Stevie Smith took over when leader Brent Marks made a miscue in traffic to record the $6,000 payday in Williams Grove Speedway’s Tommy Hinnershitz Spring Classic for sprint cars on Friday night.

The victory was the second for Smith in the Williams Grove event having taken his first in 1998.

In the 20-lap super sportsman feature Paul Miller took the win in convincing style after getting by Russ Mitten early.

Smith started second in the 30-lap Tommy Classic main but couldn’t out pace polesitter Brent Marks when the race began.

Marks led the field into traffic with eight laps recorded and although Smith was able to keep the leader in sight he failed to make a bid for the lead.

The events first caution flag unfurled with 12 laps down when Brian Montieth rolled to a stop on the backchute and by that time sixth starter Greg Hodnett was up to fourth in the field.

Smith challenged Marks on the inside for the first lap when action resumed but after that the leader got away and again began working traffic as the race neared the 10 to go point.

Traffic proved to be Marks’ undoing with nine laps to go when as he tried to put last week’s winner Rodney Westhafer a lap down, the pair made contact in the third corner, resulting in Marks backing into the outside wall.

And with that, a total of three of the top five running cars were sidelined and the edge was taken off the race as Dietrich got caught up in the crunch-up along with Blaney.

Out of the fracas came Smith as the new leader with Hodnett now second followed by Aaron Ott, Lucas Wolfe and Alan Krimes.

Smith streaked away on the restart to cruise to big win over Hodnett, Ott, Krimes and Wolfe.

Sixth through 10th went to Lance Dewease, Cory Haas, Mark Smith, Steve Buckwalter and Pat Cannon.

Heats went to Austin Hogue, Smith and Rick Lafferty with Buckwalter taking the consolation race. Fast time was set by Hodnett with a lap of 16.730 seconds.

Mitten started on the pole of the super sportsman main and led when action began as fourth starter Paul Miller drove up to second.

It took Miller only two laps to muscle by Mitten and get the lead with three down.

And from there he had clear sailing although the race was marred by a red flag with six laps to go when rookie Nate Young vaulted out over the first and second turn fence, escaping injury.

Seventh starter Scott Geesey finished second followed by Mitten, Scott Dellinger and Chad Creswell.

Sixth through 10th went to Frankie Herr, Kenny Edkin, Mike Enders, Bobby Hockenberry and Chad Trout.

Heats went to Geesey, Mitten and Miller.

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

Hodnett Puts On Passing Clinic For Port Sprints Win, Lupfer 2 For 2 In Super Lates

Eric Irvin wins first in econo lates

4/5/15

Port Royal – Greg Hodnett of Thomasville put on a passing clinic on Saturday night at Port Royal Speedway to claim the 25-lap sprint car feature after starting in the 13th spot.

Hodnett became just the second driver in four years to claim posted bonus money for driving to a regular event win from a starting position behind the first five rows. The victory was his 37th at the oval.

Mike Lupfer of Shermansdale made it back-to-back wins in the super late model division by out-racing Dylan Yoder for the 22-lap victory for the second week in a row as well in what was an exciting stock car main.

In the 18-lap econo late model main Eric Irvin of Petersburg drove to his first victory in the division at the track in its two year history while Kurt Zimmeran of Pasadena, Md., won the all american outlaws feature event.

Lucas Wolfe started on the pole of the 410 sprint featur along side Blane Heimbach.

Wolfe took the lead at the start as fourth starter Aaron Ott zipped by Heimbach for second before an early red flag with just two laps completed for a frontstretch flip by Brock Zearfoss, who escaped injury.

Ott failed to challenge Wolfe on the restart with Heimbach, Mark Smith and Mike Wagner following.

The leader entered the rear of the field on the eighth tour of the event with 13th starter Hodnett now up to sixth.

And while Ott stuck with Wolfe without mounting a challenge Hodnett was just mowing down his adversaries as he marched to the front.

With 15 laps to go he had worked his way into fourth behind Smith and with 12 laps to go he was sitting in third but was still a good half-lap back of the leaders.

But that distance just steadily shrunk as Hodnett’s fleet running No. 27 blistered around the speedway and with sixth to go Hodnett was around Ott and closed in on Wolfe as he worked traffic.

Hodnett was scored the leader with five laps to go but Wolfe and he would exchange the lead in the first corner for split seconds as the pair perfected their slide job and recovery skills to see Hodnett go back out in front on the backstretch.

And then again in turn three Wolfe dove in on Hodnett who this time twitched on the cushion as the pair drove up on a lapped car with Wolfe coming away the leader this time only to see a caution flag before the lap could be scored, putting Hodnett back out in front for a restart.

And that clear track was eaten up by Hodnett when action resumed to become the pilots third overall win of the young 2015 season.

Wolfe was second with 10th starter Brent Marks finishing third followed by Ott and Smith.

Sixth through 10th went to Mike Wagner, Davey Sammons, Dylan Cisney, Heimbach and Doug Esh, who started 21st.

Heats went to Heimbach, TJ Stutts and Mike Wagner.

Lupfer started fourth in the late model main and watched as Dylan Yoder set the pace from the second starting position.

Third starter Matt Parks drove in to second at the start and was followed by Lupfer into third with four away.

And the trio then circled the smooth track with Yoder low, Parks up high and Lupfer on the bottom for virtually the remaining distance, each driver working their favored groove.

Slowly but surely Lupfer honed in on Parks, who kept testing the high side’s durability and with six laps to go as the race waged through traffic, he secured second spot to set his sights on the lead.

It took Lupfer three laps to drive down Yoder and make his race-winning pass using his low groove, locked down mastery to record the checkers.

Yoder was second followed by Parks, Mitch Hack and Coleby Frye.

Sixth through 10th went to Andy Haus, Jeff Miller, Tim Wilson, Jeff Rine and Tim Smith Jr.

Heats went to Yoder, Parks and Lupfer.

Todd Snook led the first nine laps of the 18-lap econo late model main before falling out of the event, handing the lead over to Eric Irvin, who had taken second from Jared Fulkroad on the fifth circuit.

Andrew Yoder rode home second in the event but never challenged Irvin for the win.

Ralph Morgan Jr., Shaun Miller and Fulkroad completed the top five with heats going to Morgan and Yoder.

DEWEASE HOLDS OFF ADAM WILT TO CLAIM 38TH CAREER WIN AT LINCOLN;

Steve Fannasy Scores First Lincoln Win in Super Sportsman; Jake Jones Best of 358 Late Models

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 4/11/2015 – “We were far from the best car. Starting position was everything tonight.”

So said former track champ Lance Dewease after claiming his 38th career win at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

Handicapping placed the C.C. Dietz/Conduit Connections/Hess Ornamental Iron Works #14 on the outside pole for the start, and Dewease followed polesitter Billy Dietrich for the first 17 laps before sliding under Dietrich for the lead in turn two of lap 18.

“Billy was better. I just said ‘the heck with it’ and yanked the wing back right before the (lap 17) caution came out and I felt like I got a little better,” said Dewease, “So when the caution came out I just put it all the way back and said ‘Wherever he goes, I’m going the opposite and see if we can get around him. We were fortunate enough to do it.”

The lone caution of the event came out when Danny Dietrich and Mike Bittinger got together on the backstretch while racing for fourth. Bittinger got backwards and came to a stop at the end of the backstretch.

Although he led the rest of the way, Dewease had to hold off a charging Adam Wilt at the end, crossing just .44 seconds ahead of the Pancho’s Racing Products/North York Auto Menders #15.

“I drove my butt off all night,” said Dewease, “We didn’t have a good race car. We keep trying things and can’t get this deal figured out this year.”

“It feels like we’ve run 20 races and ran bad in all of them,” continued Dewease, “But this is actually only our third race. We took advantage of a good starting spot from our misfortunes all year. We just need to get our race car better. But the team just keeps plugging away. We know we’re not good and we just need to keep going at it.”

Freddie Rahmer caught Danny Dietrich for third on the last turn, followed by 11th starting Dietrich and 12th-starting Brian Montieth. Sixth through tenth were early-race leader Billy Dietrich, Robbie Kendall, defending champ Alan Krimes, Cory Haas, and Kyle Moody.

Heats for the 30 410 Sprinters were won by Alan Krimes, Adam Wilt, and Robbie Kendall, with Glenndon Forsythe winning the consolation.

Steve Fannasy started on the outside pole and led every lap of the 25-lap super sportsman feature, becoming the first member of the Fannasy family to grace victory lane in the Pigeon Hills.

Second through fifth were Scott Geesey, Chad Trout, Chad Criswell, and Steve’s brother Jay Fannasy.

Polesitter Russ Mitten started on the pole and ran fourth from the second lap on until suffering mechanical problems on the backstretch of the final lap.

Heats for the 27 Super Sportsman were won by Jay Fannasy, Frankie Herr, and Kevin Nouse, with Eric Walker winning the consolation.

Shermansdale’s Jake Jones became the third driver in three divisions to start on the outside pole and win a feature event on the night, claiming the 20-lap Precise Racing Products Lincoln/Trail-Way season point series opener for the 358 late models.

His win established a new track record for the 358 late models with a time of 5 minutes, 59.65 seconds.

Crossing second .97 seconds behind was polesitter Sam Gallagher, with defending series champ and all-time Lincoln winner Gene Knaub third, Cam Zeigler fourth, and Alan Sagi fifth.

Heats for the 18 358 Late Models were won by Tyler Horst and Travis Mease.

Next Saturday night, April 18th, It will be JOHN H. MYERS & SONS BUILDING & REMODELING SUPPLIES NIGHT featuring the 410 Sprinters once again. The three-division show will also include the Super Sportsman and 358 late models. Race time is 7 PM, with gates opening at 5 PM and hot laps getting underway at 6:30 PM.

Westhafer And Shaffer Win In Williams Grove Sprints

4/10/15

Mechanicsburg – Rodney Westhafer of Mechanicsburg out raced Lucas Wolfe to win Friday night’s 25-lap 410 sprint car feature at Williams Grove Speedway while in the 358 sprint main Adrian Shaffer pulled a last lap pass on Phil Walter to take the victory.

Westhafer started second in the field with Wolfe on the Pole and as it would turn out, Westhafer would lead the entire way for the win, the second of his career at the oval.

The leaders entered the rear of the field with nine laps completed and at that time Wolfe was applying heavy pressure to Westhafer for the lead as Austin Hogue, Glenndon Forsythe and Aaron Ott stayed within striking distance.

But Westhafer, wrenched by Dave Brown Sr. this season and an understudy of Williams Grove veteran Don Kreitz Jr., was fully capable of fending off Wolfe’s tests in traffic.

The pace was hectic on a tacky and tricky surface and Westhafer was relieved to see the races only caution flag unfurl with seven laps to go, clearing his way from traffic.

And when action resumed, Westhafer pulled away on the open track to a convincing win over Wolfe aboard the Allebach No. 5W.

Hogue was third followed by Ott and Cory Haas. Forsythe fell out of the race with six laps to go.

Sixth through 10th went to Greg Hodnett, Brent Marks, Nicole Bower, Daryl Stimeling and Pat Cannon.

Heats went to Don Kreitz Jr. and Wolfe.

Walter and Kody Lehman held the front row for the start of the 358 sprint main and Walter took control at the start as fourth starter Adrian Shaffer zoomed into second.

Walter was up to the challenges of Shaffer on restarts of laps four and eight but when the final 12 laps went non-stop and the leader entered traffic the pressure took on a different tone.

On the fast surface, any cars were hard to pass including those at the rear of the field and when Watler got caught up behind traffic on the final lap, Shaffer capitalized in the second turn to take the victory.

The win was 10th of Shaffer’s career at the oval.

Walter settled for second followed by Kevin Nouse, Kody Lehman and Bill Stine.

Sixth through 10th went to Doug Hammaker, Rich Eichelberger, Scott Fisher, Brad McClelland and Chandler Leiby.

Heats went to Fisher, Lehman and Shaffer.

Food Challenge Event to Morgan Cup Weekend for National Open Benefit

Jakes Wayback Burger to host Outlaw vs. Posse event to raise money.

ST. LOUIS, Mo. – April 9, 2015 - Whether you consider yourself Outlaw or Posse, one thing that sprint car fans can agree on is that a good burger is hard to beat.

Jakes Wayback Burger in Mechanicsburg, serves up one of the best burgers in the area and will host a unique challenge that brings together rivals in the sprint car world. Two drivers from the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series will go head to head with two members of the vaunted Pennsylvania Posse in a knockdown, drag out eating challenge.

“Tim Benner from Jakes has been a great supporter of the Benefit in years past,” explains National Open Benefit event organizer Kolten Gouse. “This year, he wanted to go really big and have an event where fans can come to eat and watch some type of competition between Outlaw & Posse. We came up with this food eating challenge. It’ll take place at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, May 12th. The neat thing is that fans can come by Jakes from 4 until 8 and a portion of the proceeds will go towards the benefit. We’ll have t-shirts, raffle prizes and so much more. I can’t thank Tim and his crew enough for doing this for us.”

Benner is equally excitied.

“We’re looking forward to May 12th and kicking off this season for the National Open Benefit. It's always nice to see the fans and drivers support this wonderful event. Race fans are the best!”

Fans can stop by Jakes Wayback Burger in Mechanicsburg, Pa. at 25 Gateway Drive.

The event serves as a spring board for the Outlaws vs. Posse rivalry in 2015. The team competiting factions will go head to head at Lincoln Speedway on Wednesday, May 13th and then Williams Grove Speedway on Friday, May 15th, and Saturday May 16th. Lisa and Vince Magaro started the National Open Benefit in 2008 shortly after sprint car driver John Westbrook was involved in a vicious crash at Williams Grove Speedway. The proceeds went to help Westbrook and his family with medical expenses.

The money raised from this year’s extravaganza will go to the York County Racing Club Injured Driver's Fund, the World of Outlaws Benevolent Fund, Steve King Foundation, the Kevin Gobrecht Memorial Fund and the Eastern Museum of Motor Racing. Kolten Gouse became involved with the event in 2011.

Fred Rahmer Promotions Highlights Path Valley Speedway Sprint Car Event with Driver Bonuses and Unique Fan Experiences

SPRING RUN, Pa. (April 5, 2015) – Fred Rahmer Promotions brings the fastest cars on dirt—the 410 Sprint Cars—to Spring Run, Pennsylvania’s Path Valley Speedway, on Sunday, April 26th, giving drivers the opportunity to add to the already lucrative purse with paid qualifying events, bonus money and a unique contingency award program that allows fans to vote for the winner.

“We want to make this as exciting of an event as we can,” Rahmer explained. “I know when I raced, we pushed 100 percent all of the time – but if there was a little more of an incentive or a bonus we’d push 110 percent. It makes it more fun as a competitor and puts on a better show for the fans.”

Kicking off the ‘padding of the purse’ is a $500 bonus to the winner of each 410 Sprint Car qualifying heat event – as long as that winner comes from outside of the front row. If a driver from the front row picks up the victory they will receive $200 for their win, and the additional $300 will be added into the Lawrence Chevrolet Non-Qualifiers event jackpot.

Lawrence Chevrolet of Mechanicsburg, PA presents the Non-Qualifiers event with a guaranteed winner’s share of $500 – but that jackpot could reach as high as $1,700 depending on the results of the qualifying heat events. In 2014, 17-year-old second-generation driver Chandler Leiby earned $1,100 for his non-qualifiers win.

Hoosier Racing Tires gets involved with a 410 Sprint Car contingency bonus that sees six right rear Hoosier Tires being distributed to drivers based on a fan vote, as well as four right rear Hooser tires that will be distributed to 600cc Winged Micro Sprint drivers based on a random drawing.

With a $5,000 winner’s share up for grabs, a stellar field of the nation’s top 410 Sprint Car drivers have already confirmed their attendance, including Greg Hodnett, Lance Dewease, Danny Dietrich, Brent Marks, Cole Duncan, Chad Kemenah, Danny Smith, Greg Wilson, Travis Philo, Shane Helms, Tim Shaffer, and Cody Darrah.

Registration is limited for the 600cc Winged Micro Sprints and entry forms are flying in. Drivers are encouraged to visit www.fredrahmerpromotions.com to download the registration form.

All the action takes place on Sunday, April 26 with pit gates opening at 12:00 noon, grandstand gates opening at 2:00 PM, and hot laps beginning at 6:00 PM with time trials immediately following.

General Admission ticket prices are $20 and children under 12 are admitted FREE. NEW Grandstand Seating with Pit Access tickets are available for $30. General Pit Access is $30.

Series sponsors include: Meltzer’s Trailer Sales, J&S Fabrication, Buck Rubs Gentlemen's Club, C&B Mushrooms, Aran Trading, Lawrence Chevrolet of Mechanicsburg, Hoosier Racing Tire and Miller Brother's Chevrolet.

DEFENDING CHAMPIONS SMITH & RINE SCORE 360 SPRINT CAR & LATE MODEL OPENING DAY VICTORIES; SHOOP & SHULTZ TAKE PRO STOCK & ROADRUNNER WINS

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Defending champion Mark Smith of Sunbury drove to a convincing victory in Saturday’s night’s 25-lap 360 sprint car season opener at Selinsgrove Speedway.

Smith, who scored the prestigious “King of the 360s” victory at the East Bay Raceway in Florida earlier this year, was at the wheel of the Mach 1 Chassis No. 1 for his 11th career win in 358-360 sprint car competition at the track.

Former 10-time champion Jeff Rine of Danville wired the field for his 92nd career feature win at Selinsgrove in the 25-lap super late model feature.

Andrew Shoop of Mifflintown made a last-lap pass to score his second career pro stock win in the division’s 15-lap feature, while Brandon Shultz of Milton held off numerous challenges to record his first career win at the track in the 12-lap roadrunner race.

Selinsgrove Speedway will swing back into action at 6 p.m. Saturday, April 11, with the Empire Super Sprint (ESS) Mach 1 Chassis Spring Fling for 358 and 360 sprint cars paying $3,000 to win. Time Trials will be a part of the qualifying format for the 30-lap feature event. The super late models and pro stocks will also be on the racing card. Track gates will open at 4 p.m.

Polesitter Cody Keller drove into the lead at the start of the sprint car feature. Keller was chased by second-place starter Jason Shultz for the first six laps of the race. The red flag stopped the race on lap six when Mallie Shuster slammed the outside guardrail in turn four and flipped over in his sprint car. Shuster escaped injury.

On the restart, Shultz made a dive to the inside of Keller entering turn one and emerged the race’s new leader out of turn two. Meanwhile, a wheel-to-wheel race unfolded for the third position between fourth-place starter Robbie Stillwaggon and eighth-place starter Mark Smith, with Smith taking over the spot at the halfway point.

On the 17th circuit, a flat tire caused Shultz’s car to go into a wild spin in turn three, narrowly escaping serious damage with the outside wall. Keller inherited the lead again for the lap 18 restart in which Smith made the winning pass using the inside lane in turn three. Smith went on to cross the finish line 3.5 seconds ahead of Keller, Stillwaggon, Davie Franek, and Michael Walter.

Polesitter Jim Yoder and second-place starter Jeff Rine dueled for the lead at the start of the late model feature. Rine powered into the front spot and kept his 2J in front of the pack for the duration of the race even while navigating his way through slower traffic.

Yoder kept Rine in his sights for most of the race only to get held up by the same traffic that Rine was working his way through at breakneck speeds. By the halfway point, Rine stretched his lead to a straightaway. On the 19th circuit, the caution flag waved for a three-car tangle involving Jeremy Ohl, Steve Campbell and Chad Hollenbeck in turns three and four.

When the race resumed, Rine kept his distance from Yoder and the rest of the field as seventh-place starter Dave Zona advanced to third in the final laps. At the finish, Rine was victorious by 3.6 seconds over Yoder, Zona, Hayes Mattern, and Jason Smith.

Outside front row starter Nathan Long pulled into the lead at the start of the pro stock feature. Third-place starter Andrew Shoop held onto the second position for the first lap until polesitter Brad Mitch took over the spot. A torrid battle for the lead unfolded between the top three drivers until the first caution flag of the event unfurled on lap nine for Curtis Lawton.

When the race resumed, so did the war of wheels for the lead between Long, Mitch, and Shoop. On several circuits, the leaders were racing full-tilt and almost three-wide around the oval. The caution flag slowed the field again on lap 14, setting up a chase to the checkered flag. Exiting the final turn, Shoop pulled off a thrilling victory over Long and Mitch by just .22 of a second. Adam Campbell and AJ Stroup completed the top five.

In the night-cap roadrunner race, second-place starter Brandon Shultz, fourth-place starter John Fowler Jr. and third-place starter Bob Bussey put on a precision driving show for all 12 laps of the race. While Shultz edged out the field to lead most of the laps, Fowler was scored as the frontrunner for laps three and five.

Racing off turn four for the checkered flag, the leaders formed a three-wide formation as Shultz scored his first-ever win by the slimmest of margins over Bussey and Fowler. Jeremy Kline and Ed Capper completed the top five.

MONTIETH BLOWS AWAY FIELD IN LINCOLN 410 SPRINT SPRING CHAMPIONSHIP

Rittenhouse claims season opener for 358 sprints

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 4/4/2015 –Saturday night’s 410 Sprint Spring Championship was Brian Montieth’s 46th career Lincoln win, but it may have been the most impressive of them all.

Time trials and an inversion of four put Montieth on the pole for the 30-lap, $5,000-to-win championship event. By the time the first caution of the event came out for a spinning Kyle Moody in turn four of lap 18, there were eight lapped cars between Montieth and second-place Adam Wilt, and only 11 of the 24 starters were still on the lead lap.

“I hate starting up front,” said Montieth upon exiting his Jerry Parrish-owned Auto Locator/Premier Auto Works #21 in victory lane, “I’d rather be chasin’ ‘the rabbit than BE the rabbit.”

Wilt actually brought out the only other caution of the race on lap 28 when he hit the outside wall and spun on turn three.

There was plenty of discussion in the stands on whether, had no caution come out, Montieth would have lapped the entire field. His lead was more than six seconds when the 18th-lap caution flag came out.

The other star of the show was Danny Dietrich, who came from tenth starting spot to finish second at the end, 3.56 seconds behind the winner.

“Scott (Zeller) has this thing motivatin’,” said Montieth, “I can basically run this thing wherever we want. It’s easy when that happens.”

He certainly made it look easy in claiming his second Lincoln win in six days.

“I was watching the scoreboard. I didn’t know how far I was ahead,” continued Montieth, “The more sparks that come out of this thing, the harder I was running. It was just the brakes. I’m hard on them. Scott just laughs at me. I’m going to get in the fence at some point.”

Crossing third through fifth behind Dietrich were defending track champ Alan Krimes, seventh-starting Austin Hogue, and 12th-starting Brent Marks. Sixth through tenth were Cory Haas, Freddie Rahmer, Jimmy Siegel, Moody, and Robbie Kendall.

410 Sprint heats were won by Wilt, Hogue, and Moody. Fast time in time trials over the 25-car field was set by Niki Young with a 1-lap time of 13.421-seconds (100.589 MPH).

Young suffered mechanical problems when he came out for his qualifying event, and scratched for the evening.

Norristown’s Todd Rittenhouse, Jr. started on the outside of the front row and led every lap of the 20-lap season opener for 358 sprint cars.

Polesitter Matt Campbell ran second the first 13 laps before spinning in turn two, turning the runner-up spot over to eighth-starting Doug Hammaker.

A last-lap caution for a spinning Tyler Esh in turn four set up a one-lap dash to the finish, with Rittenhouse crossing .59-seconds ahead of Hammaker for his third career Lincoln 358 sprint car win.

Third through fifth were seventh-starting Jeff Rohrbaugh, lady driver Ashley Cappetta (her best career Lincoln finish), and Chandler Leiby. Brad McClelland came back from an opening lap crash to cross sixth.

Heats for the 31 358 Sprints on hand were won by Ryan Wilson (who dropped from the feature field while running third), Cappetta, and Leiby, with Cody Fairchok winning the consolation.

Lincoln Speedway will switch to night racing next Saturday, April 11th, with a triple-header program to include the 410 Sprints, Super Sportsman, and 358 late models. It will be ARCH Night, with card-carrying members of the Auto Racing Club of Hagerstown getting a $2 discount on admission. Race time will be 7 PM, with gates opening at 5 PM.

Ott, Lupfer And Gramley Open Port Royal Season With Wins

4/4/15

Port Royal – Aaron Ott of East Berlin etched his name in the Port Royal Speedway opening day record books as the sprint car winner on Saturday night, staying in front of Nate Snyder and Lucas Wolfe for the $3,600 payday.

In the super late model main it was defending super late model champion Mike Lupfer of Shermansdale taking a $2,500 victory as sponsored by G N R Excavating and S & R Towing.

And in the 305 sprint main Lewistown’s Nate Gramley won his first career Port Royal feature.

Three attempts at a start of the 410 sprint feature were turned back, first for a tangle between Brad Howard and Blane Heimbach that sent Heimbach backing into the outside second turn wall.

Next it was second starter Dave Ely forcing the start back when as he raced with Ott for the lead in the third corner he lost the handle on the car and spun.

And then Greg Hodnett forced a restart on the next attempt at green when he connected with Mike Wagner as they raced onto the backstretch and careened toward the outside wall.

Ott took control once the race finally got going and entered the rear of the field on the sixth lap with Snyder, Wolfe and Logan Wagner in pursuit.

As the race headed toward the halfway point of the 25 circuit main, the front three cars all drew within striking distance of one another when Wolfe pulled the trigger on Snyder for second deep in the first corner.

In a hair-raising move, Snyder squeezed between the outside turn two wall and the right side of Wolfe’s car in order to slingshot back into second but the fracas between the two allowed Ott to open up a little distance.

Just then, as Snyder and Wolfe began to again reel in Ott, the yellow flag unfurled for a three car incident involving Wayne Dadetto, Curt Stroup and Steve Buckwalter.

On the restart, Ott streaked away from the field and the race that most were expecting for the win disappeared and Ott took the victory by 1.654 seconds.

Snyder finished a career-best second followed by Wolfe, Doug Esh and Mike Wagner.

Sixth through 10th went to Logan Wagner, Ryan Taylor, Davey Sammons, Dylan Cisney and Buckwalter.

Heats went to Wolfe, Ely and Snyder.

Mike Lupfer drew the pole for the start of the 22-lap super late model main and outraced Coleby Frye for the lead as the pair ran down the backstretch to complete the first circuit.

Frye raced Lupfer hard back to the line but Lupfer had the lead and it was a control he would not relinquish for the rest of the distance as he pretty much annihilated the field in the non-stop affair that saw third starter Dylan Yoder finish second as Frye faded late in the event.

In fact, Matt Parks who started eighth got around Frye for third near the finish with Frye ending up fourth and Tim Wilson rounding out the top five.

Sixth through 10th went to Nick Dickson, Andy Haus, Tim Smith Jr., Patrick Bryner and Justin Kann.

Heats went to Yoder and Kann.

A stopped Sean Kirkpatrick stalled the initial start of the 18-lap 305 sprint feature before Gramley could start his run at the front.

On the second circuit Tyler Reaser drove around Gramley in the first corner only to have Gramley wrestle the lead away down the backchute to lead the field back to the stripe.

Shortly after, with four laps recorded, Reaser’s good run came to and end when he stopped on the track, placing Cory Thornton in second.

Gramley would go on to win while defending Port Royal 305 champion Jeff Miller worked the field, taking over second with six laps to go.

A restart with two laps to go bunched the field but Miller was no match for Gramley to the finish.

Third went to Thornton followed by Scott Ellerman and Bill Jones Jr..

Sixth through 10th went to Zach Newlin, Jake Waters, Ken Duke, Cale Reigle and James Pryde.

Heats went to Ellerman and Gramley.

Last year’s season opened March 23 with a 410 sprint car race that was won by Blane Heimbach of Selinsgrove. The first regular show of 2014 was held April 12 in which TJ Stutts of Liverpool (360 sprint cars), Jeff Rine of Danville (late models), Brad Mitch of McClure (pro stocks), and Keith Bissinger of Orangeville (roadrunners) took regular season opening day checkered flags.

BRIAN MONTIETH BLASTS TO THRILLING SUNDAY NIGHT WIN

Chad Criswell Scores Sportsman Win and Bob Stough Tops Legends

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 3/29/2015 - Brian Montieth lived up to his nickname “The Edge” as he blasted around the outside on the high-banks of Lincoln Speedway during the early stages of Sunday’s 25-lap 410 sprint car main and then used a slide job on Greg Hodnett to assume command with 16 laps complete. Montieth then had to fend off challenges from Hodnett following a late race restart before posting his 45th career Lincoln Speedway feature win.

It was the second Sunday program of the season after bad weather on Saturday forced track owners to utilize the Sunday raindate.

Montieth lined up fifth following a first lap lineup rework following a red flag for a multi car pileup in turn two after Robbie Kendall spun and collected Mike Bittinger, Glenndon Forsythe, Tyler Ross and Scott Fisher.

Polesitter Austin Hogue led lap one before third-starting Hodnett powered by off the second turn to take control.

Hodnett, who won the Icebreaker 30 season opener two weeks ago, set a torrid pace on the top side of the speedway as Hogue, Brent Marks and Montieth were locked in a tight battle for the runner-up spot.

Montieth rocketed from fourth spot into second during the 12th lap after driving by Marks in turn two and then blasting around Hogue to take second.

“I just got lucky,” said the Phoenixville driver after earning $3,200 for the Jerry Parrish owned team. “I knew Greg was going to be tough because he wasn’t happy about that restart lineup and neither was I.”

“The inside row isn’t where you wanted to be. I knew I had to do something. For what the weather is, Fred (Putney) did a good job with the race track. Those guys are working against the weather. If you work outside, you know what I’m talking about. They are doing their best and trying to give us something to race on.”

Hodnett was working heavy lapped traffic just past the midway point of the event as Montieth chewed into his lead lap after lap.

Montieth put the race winning move on Hodnett with a slide job in turn four and emerged as the race leader with 16 laps complete.

Disaster nearly struck Montieth after he made contact with Aaron Ott in turn three, resulting in a caution for Ott.

Montieth entered turn one on the restart low as Hodnett pounded the outside looking to regain the lead. Hodnett stayed with the leader and attempted to slide in front of Montieth’s Auto Locater No. 21 in turn two on lap 22 but Montieth had the momentum and drove off the corner ahead of Hodnett and held on for the feature win.

“It (the track) started to go away and I knew the rubber was going to go away so I was going to make Greg try and go around the outside of me, as weird as that sounds,” said Montieth about the late race restart. “We’re going to try to be better this year as far as my head wise and see what we can do with it.”

“I can’t say much more about this team. A couple of weeks ago was the first I’ve sat in this thing since we last raced in October and they’ve done their homework. They make my life fun.”

Following the top two finishers were Gerard McIntyre, Jr., Hogue and Marks with Freddie Rahmer, Jim Siegel, Niki Young, Mark Smith and Cory Haas completing the top 10 finishers.

Heats for the 32 410 Sprints were won by Brent Marks, Cory Haas, Austin Hogue and Robbie Kendall. The consolation was won by Shane Hoff.

Chad Criswell started on the pole of the 25-lap Super Sportsman feature and held off a hard charging Carmen Perigo, Jr. to score his first career Super Sportsman opening day win.

Criswell held the point early over Doug Dodson and Frankie Herr and held the point through several early race yellows.

Following a lap eight restart, Herr got into the back of Dodson, sending Dodson towards the back of the field and eventually to the pits.

Perigo started sixth and moved into the runner-up spot following the mid-way portion of the race but was unable make a pass on the Martinsburg, W.V. driver.

Perigo, Herr, Steve Wilbur and Scott Geesey finished in the top five followed by Kevin Nouse, Mike Enders, Scott Dellinger, Paul Miller and Bobby Hockenberry.

Mike Enders, Carmen Perigo, Jr. and Scott Geesey were heat race winners for the 27 Super Sportsman pitside. The consolation went to Tom Wyckoff.

Bob Stough came out on top of a thrilling 15-lap Central PA Legends feature after exchanging the top spot with Chad Earnst several times over the final five circuits.

Stough took the win over Earnst, 11th starting Lucas Montgomery, Bill Diehl and early race leader Justin Mitchell.

Mason Chaney and Lucas Montgomery were the two heat winners for the 24 Central PA Legends.

Lincoln Speedway returns to action Saturday night, April 4th with the Spring Championship for the 410 Sprints, paying $5,000 to win, $325 to start. Also on the program will be the 358 sprints. Race time will be 6 PM, with gates opening at 4 PM.

Dietrich Wins Second Williams Grove Opening Day Event, Dickson Wires Late Models

3/27/15

Mechanicsburg –Danny Dietrich of Gettysburg scored his second career Williams Grove Speedway Opening Day sprint car victory on Friday night, taking a $3,600 victory over Steve Buckwalter.

In the super late model main, Nick Dickson of McVeytown wired the field for a 20-lap victory over Gary Stuhler.

Polesitter Mark Smith took the lead over Aaron Ott at the start of the 25-lap 410 sprint main with Dietrich holding down third spot.

The first 20 laps of the race went non-stop with Ott withdrawing on the 15th circuit amid a hectic race at the front between Smith, Dietrich, Alan Krimes and Buckwalter

Dietrich was able to sneak into the lead at the line over Smith to score the 16th circuit before Smith stuffed his car back out in front in the first corner with Krimes in third.

Dietrich was one of the few cars making the outside groove work to his advantage and he used it to retake control with seven laps to go as Buckwalter got by Krimes for third.

Buckwalter motored by Smith on the 19th tour as 17th starter Brian Montieth entered the fray after catching the fan’s eyes with a ripping run around the topside from the rear.

The races only caution flag unfurled with four laps to go when Krimes fell out of contention, breaking in the second corner.

The race that many thought may develop between Montieth and the leaders on the restart never materialized over the final two miles as Dietrich drove away at the new green for his second lidlifter win having taken his first in 2012.

The victory was Dietrich’s 10th at the historic oval.

Buckwalter rode home second followed by Montieth, Mark Smith and 12th starter Greg Hodnett.

Sixth through 10th went to Lance Dewease, Brent Marks, Freddie Rahmer, Lucas Wolfe and Cory Haas.

Heats for the 23-car field went to Krimes, Dietrich and Wolfe.

Dickson etched his name in the Williams Grove super late model record books for the first time in his career by holding off Gary Stuhler the entire way in the late model main.

Jeff Rine rode third for the entire distance as did Jerry Bard in fourth.

York’s Rick Eckert started 10th in the field and drove up to fifth at the finish.

Sixth through 10th went to Jason Covert, Kyle Hardy, Dylan Yoder, Gene Knaub and Ross Robinson.

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

March 26 And 28 Port Royal Programs Cancelled, New Practice Slated April 1

Starting Times April 4 & 11 Moved To 5 PM

3/26/15

Port Royal – Impending afternoon rain has forced Port Royal Speedway to cancel the Thursday, March 26 practice session slated for tonight from 6 – 9 pm.

With afternoon and late day rains and a storm front predicted on a work night when the practice was slated, it seemed the most prudent move was to call off the practice in plenty of time for everyone involved to plan accordingly.

Beyond that, the extreme harsh winter temperatures expected Saturday in the area has also forced officials to again cancel the planned season opener slated for Saturday night, March 28.

Again, with nighttime lows both Friday and Saturday nights slated for around 20 and a high of 36 forecast for Saturday, prudence has dictated the move in an effort to protect the new racing surface, the racers and their equipment and the fans themselves.

Thus, the 2015 Port Royal season opener is now planned for next Saturday, April 4 with a moved up starting time of 5 pm.

And another attempt at a practice session will be made, next Wednesday night, April 1, from 6 – 9 pm. The practice will be open to any division slated to appear on the 2015 schedule of events.

On Saturday, April 4, racing action at 5 pm will include 410 sprints, super late models and the first appearance of the year by the River Valley Builders 305 sprints under the PASS banner.

March 26 And 28 Port Royal Programs Cancelled, New Practice Slated April 1

Starting Times April 4 & 11 Moved To 5 PM

3/26/15

Port Royal � Impending afternoon rain has forced Port Royal Speedway to cancel the Thursday, March 26 practice session slated for tonight from 6 � 9 pm.

With afternoon and late day rains and a storm front predicted on a work night when the practice was slated, it seemed the most prudent move was to call off the practice in plenty of time for everyone involved to plan accordingly.

Beyond that, the extreme harsh winter temperatures expected Saturday in the area has also forced officials to again cancel the planned season opener slated for Saturday night, March 28.

Again, with nighttime lows both Friday and Saturday nights slated for around 20 and a high of 36 forecast for Saturday, prudence has dictated the move in an effort to protect the new racing surface, the racers and their equipment and the fans themselves.

Thus, the 2015 Port Royal season opener is now planned for next Saturday, April 4 with a moved up starting time of 5 pm.

And another attempt at a practice session will be made, next Wednesday night, April 1, from 6 � 9 pm. The practice will be open to any division slated to appear on the 2015 schedule of events.

On Saturday, April 4, racing action at 5 pm will include 410 sprints, super late models and the first appearance of the year by the River Valley Builders 305 sprints under the PASS banner.

April 4 will be Easter Night at the speedway with the first 200 youth entering the main grandstand receiving a free chocolate Easter rabbit. In addition, a youth egg scramble will be held in the infield just prior to the heat races.

Also at the opener, the first 600 fans entering the main grandstand will receive a free 2015 schedule magnet courtesy of Juniata Beverage.

The 410 sprint winner�s share for the opener is $3,600 including $100 of which is posted in honor of late speedway champion Richard �Dick� �Pete� Swarmer as posted by his son Steve.

The super late models will compete for $2,000 to win in the opener.

All division�s heats and feature events will find starting grids set by draw.

The same starting time of 5 pm will again be used for the Saturday, April 11 program featuring the 410 sprints, super late models, Gray�s Auto & Towing 355 econo late models and the All American Outlaws.

April 11 will also be $1 Hot Dog Night at the track with limited admission Kids Bus Rides slated around the oval.

Williams Grove Opens with 410 Sprints And Super Late Models March 27

3/22/15

Mechanicsburg –Williams Grove Speedway will open the 2015 racing season this Friday night, March 27 at 7:30 pm with a good old fashioned Williams Grove twinbill of Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprints and super late models.

Fireworks will help bring in the season of professional, local dirt track auto racing at Williams Grove.

Full programs of heat races and features for each division is on the agenda with the 410 sprints racing for $3,600 to win.

Adult general admission for the prestigious season opener is set at just $15 with youth ages 12 – 20 admitted for just $10.

The Williams Grove portion of the 50/50 drawing on the night will be donated to Wounded Warriors.

Last year, Gerard McIntyre Jr. held off the furious charges of Stevie Smith and Brian Montieth to win the 2014 season opener for the 410 sprints on March 28.

Since 1939 when Tommy Hinnershitz won the inaugural race at the famed facility, so many highly recognized names and even some not so much have scored the prestigious first Williams Grove race of the year.

Well-knowns or on their way up the ladder at the time of their victories were the likes of Jan Opperman, AJ Foyt, Ted Horn and Hinnershitz.

Kasey Kahne, destined for bigger and better things in todays NASCAR arena, took the opener back in 2000.

But perhaps lesser-known at the time or even unique names like Kevin Collins, Brian Paulus, Marlett Naill and Gig Stephens have also taken that famous first checkered flag of the year at Williams Grove.

Since the dawning of the decade in 2010, opening day winners at Williams Grove have been: Fred Rahmer, 2010 and 2013; Stevie Smith, 2011; and Danny Dietirch, 2012.

Greg Hodnett, the defending Williams Grove track champion, has a pair of opening day victories to his credit at the track, coming back in 2002 and in 2004 and in fact the Thomasville speedster has already won in the area this season.

Williams Grove Speedway will return to action on April 3 at 7:30 pm with a program of 410 sprints and super sportsman.

The kickoff of the 2015 Saturday Night Series featuring the super sportsman is slated for Saturday, May 2.

FRED RAHMER BRINGS 410 SPRINT CAR RACING BACK TO PATH VALLEY SPEEDWAY FOR AN EXCITING THREE RACE SERIES

SPRING RUN, PA (March 15, 2015) – After an inaugural 2014 Pennsylvania Sprint Car Speed Week event that boasted a standing-room-only crowd and an equally impressive car count, Fred Rahmer Promotions returns to Spring Run, PA’s Path Valley Speedway, for an expanded three event series featuring 410 Sprint Cars and 600cc Micro Sprints.

With a $5,000 top prize up for grabs -- plus additional driver incentives and bonuses -- you can expect the area's best Sprint Car racers to be on hand when the first event of the 2015 season kicks off on Sunday, April 26.

The 25th running of Pennsylvania Sprint Car Speed Week stops at the Path Valley Speedway on Sunday, June 28 with the 410 Sprint Cars and 600cc Micro Sprints co-headlining the popular event. Close to the heart of Rahmer -- who holds 30 PA Speed Week victories and 13 PA Speed Week Championships -- this event will prove to be nothing short of spectacular.

The final event of the Fred Rahmer Promotions season takes place on Saturday, October 17. Along with a regular program of 410 Sprint Cars and 600cc Micro Sprints, a special “Fans Choice Feature” will take place where the winner will take home an additional $6,000 top prize. Drivers must compete in all three Fred Rahmer Promotion events to be eligible for the “Fans Choice Feature.”

Each event will follow a traditional Pennsylvania Speed Week event format and rules. Drivers will participate in time trials, in which a blind draw will determine the time trial order, followed by qualifying heat races and a B-Main event. The A-Main will be lined up by time trials with an inversion of four, six or eight.

While the racing will be hot and heavy on the 1/4-mile bullring, off-track accommodations have been greatly improved from the previous season. Rahmer, along with Perkasie, PA's Tru-Line Contractors, has spent much of the winter constructing new grandstands that include pit access and additional restrooms.

Steve Post, Motor Racing Network's NASCAR Pit Reporter and co-host of the popular Winged Nation radio program, will once again provide the call of the night's racing action with his ever entertaining play-by-play announcing, including various fan giveaways and prizes.

One of the more interesting incentives for the 600cc Micro Sprint competitors is the opportunity to win a test session aboard one of the Fred Rahmer-owned 410 Sprint Cars. Two opportunities will be available, one to the winner of the series Points Champion, and the second to a random driver who has participated in all three events in the series.

Registration is limited for the 600cc Micro Sprints. Drivers are encouraged to download the registration form on www.fredrahmerpromotions.com

It all starts on Sunday, April 26 with pit gates opening at 12:00 noon, grandstand gates opening at 2:00 PM, and hot laps beginning at 6:00 PM with time trials immediately following.

General Admission ticket prices are $20 and children under 12 are admitted FREE. NEW Reserved Grandstand Seating with Pit Access tickets are available for $30. General Pit Access is $30

Series sponsors include: Tru-Line Contracting, Buck Rubs Gentlemen's Club, C&B Mushrooms, Aran Trading, and Miller Brother's Chevrolet.

GREG HODNETT SCORES LINCOLN SPEEDWAY ICEBREAKER 30 SEASON OPENER Mar 15, 2015, 21:47 Email this article Printer friendly page

Hodnett Takes Home $4,000 payday in 2015 Season-Opener

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 3/15/2015 – After being forced to cancel its first three scheduled races of the 2015 racing season due to snow and cold weather, Lincoln Speedway officially kicked off the racing season Sunday afternoon, March 15th, with Greg Hodnett surviving a marathon Icebreaker 30 feature event to add his name to opening day winners at the Pigeon Hills oval.

Using the Sunday rain date after a Saturday rainout, a large crowd of fans came out to watch the 410 Sprinters in action as Hodnett missed several early crashes and held on to score the win in the 30 lap feature that took well over an hour to complete.

“I was just in survival mode,” stated the Spring Grove driver after earning $4,000 for his 28th career Lincoln Speedway feature win. “The track was very tricky, obviously due to circumstances…but the guys did a great job with the car.”

“They freed up it and I knew I was going to be free pretty much the whole race but that was the only way that I figured we could make any headway so it worked out for us.”

Hodnett’s win moved him into a tie with Van May for 10th place on Lincoln Speedway’s all-time track win list.

The first feature of 2015 took four starts to get an official lap in the books.

Niki Young flipped in turn one on the initial green flag. A second red flag came on the ensuing restart when front row starters Freddie Rahmer and Chase Dietz tangled on the frontstrech. Last year’s opening day winner Adam Wilt was also caught up in the crash.

Tim Glatfelter brought out the red flag on the third restart, flipping on the front stretch after contact with Chris Knopp and Scott Fisher.

Billy Dietrich finally grabbed the top spot when the first lap was scored, but, a yellow for Brian Montieth, who sat sideways off turn two slowed action with three laps complete.

Billy Dietrich continued to set the pace over Hodnett, who originally started sixth on the grid when another yellow for Rahmer slowed the pace once again after seven laps were scored.

Hodnett shot under Billy Dietrich entering turn one on the restart, emerging as the race leader before Aaron Ott hit the wall in turn two resulting in a fuel stop.

Billy Dietrich rolled to a stop on the restart as Hodnett continued to set the pace when another yellow flag appeared with 12 laps down for a stopped Fisher in turn four.

Montieth spun on the restart bringing out the final caution of the day.

The final 18 laps went non-stop as Hodnett drove the Mike Heffner owned, Lelands.com, Trone Outdoor, Eagle Steel No. 27 sprinter away from the field.

Hodnett was slowed up late in the event when he caught the rear of the field but maintained a near straightaway advantage when he crossed under the checkered flag to officially score the first win in Central Pennsylvania this season.

“The 51 (Rahmer) and 44 (Dietz) were kind of bouncing around jockeying for position even before we took off so it was inevitable to happen because it’s a pretty narrow race track down here on the front straightaway…unfortunately those guys got tied up in it and it worked out for us and moved us up a row,” said Hodnett. “It wasn’t the raciest I’ve ever been but we just kind of bided our time and made sure we didn’t do anything stupid to take ourselves out of contention.”

“Everyone that helps on this car did a nice job and I’m just fortunate to be standing here. Normally here I’m just not that good here. We just lucked out. Hopefully it’s not a bad omen because sometimes when you win early in the year, you get to struggling in the middle and end of the year. Hopefully that doesn’t happen and we can keep this thing going.”

Kyle Moody raced home in the runner-up spot ahead of Robbie Kendall, Brent Marks and 20th starting Cory Haas with defending track champion Alan Krimes sixth ahead of Montieth, Gerard McIntyre, Jr., Danny Dietrich and Cole Duncan.

Heat races for the 30 410 Sprints pitside were won by Mike Bittinger, Chris Knopp and Bill Dietrich. Last year’s opening day winner Adam Wilt won the consolation.

Lincoln Speedway will switch to night racing next Saturday, March 21st, with a 410 Sprint and 358 late model doubleheader. Race time will be 6 PM, with gates opening at 4 PM.

Port Royal Speedway

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

Port Royal Cancels March 20/21 Weekend

3/15/15

Port Royal – Port Royal Speedway has been forced to cancel its already pushed back season opening weekend slated for March 20 and 21.

Continued rock-hard frozen ground and extremely poor grounds and track surface conditions have made the cancellation of the Friday practice session and Saturday opener a necessity.

“It’s clear as we are now a week away from what we had hoped to be the opener that there is just no way we can even think about using the grounds or track in a week,” Port Royal Promoter Steve O’Neal said.

This means the season opener is now slated for Saturday evening, March 28 at 6 pm when the 410 sprints, super late models and the Gray’s Auto & Towing 355-econo late models are again on the schedule.

March 28 will also be Camera & Autograph Night at the track when the purchase of a general admission ticket will gain fans access to the pit area for a limited time prior to warm ups.

The 410 sprint winner’s share for the opener recently increased from $3,500 to $3,600 in honor of late speedway champion Richard “Dick” “Pete” Swarmer.

Swarmer’s son Steve, a former competitor himself, has posted the $100 increase in honor of the elder Swarmer’s opening day victory some 50 years ago, in 1965.

The super late models will also compete for an increased payday in the opener, set at $2,000 to win.

Adult general admission for the show will be $15 with students ages 12 – 18 admitted for just $7.

General admission gates will open at 4 pm.

The possibility of a practice session at the track is being evaluated for the week of March 30 with an announcement regarding a date and time in the offing.

Season seats and passes remain on sale at the speedway office as well. Office hours are held Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays with times available on the oval’s website.

TRAIL-WAY, “MOTORAMA” FOUNDER ARMIN H. HOSTETTER LEAVES LEGACY AFTER PASSING AT THE AGE OF 87

The Central Pennsylvania racing community lost an icon of the sport with the passing of Armin H. Hostetter at the age of 87 on Thursday, January 29th.

Best known as the founder of Trail-Way Speedway and the famous annual “Motorama” show in Harrisburg, Armin actually grew up as a multisport athlete that excelled in every sport.

As a baseball player, he was good enough to try out for the Pittsburgh Pirates. As a football player, he played semi-pro football with the York White Rose and Chambersburg Cardinals.

Despite his accomplishments in other sports, it was the motorcycles on the family farm that Armin loved the most. Following the footsteps of his two brothers, Armin took up motorcycle racing; He competed at such well-known tracks as Williams Grove and Langhorne, but among his career highlights was racing for the Norton factory on the beach at the Daytona 200.

His short racing career brought him back to the family farm just outside McSherrystown, which he bought from his parents and established a club for people who had their own off-road motorcycles. He built some tracks to give the club members a place to ride.

Originally cut out for sulky horse racing, one track was later made bigger for cycles and cars. It became what is now known as Trail-Way Speedway, which first starting racing programs in 1971.

There were weekly shows of A.M.A. motorcycle flat track and motocross racing. As the years progressed, Armin also promoted races ranging from go-karts and midgets to late models and 410 sprint cars. In recent years, Trail-Way has hosted the 358 sprint cars as its main division, along with regular appearances by 358 late models, three different divisions of micro-sprints, classic cars, limited stocks, and, of course, A.M.A. flat track racing.

The list of drivers who have learned to race at Trail-Way is a “Who’s Who” of eastern dirt track racing. In the sprint car division alone, Brad McClelland and rising stars Brent Marks, Danny Dietrich, Chad Criswell, Logan Schuchart, and Kyle Moody cut their racing teeth at Trail-Way. The careers of the late Kevin Gobrecht and Lucas Wolfe began at the track on “the farm.”

As if farming 500 acres and weekend racing wasn’t enough, Armin also founded the “Motorama,” now held every February at the Pennsylvania Farm Show complex. The event was first held in 1978, and has become one of the largest shows of its kind in the East. The show fills the entire one-million square feet of the complex with live indoor racing and several rooms of automotive show entertainment. The indoor racing, headlined by Arenacross, has become a “must see” event for racing fans.

Despite turning the bulk of promotional duties over to his sons Barry, Brad, and Perry in recent years, Armin remained active at the speedway until the time of his death. He especially enjoyed greeting people from the front porch of his house (located beside the pit entrance) as they arrived at the speedway.

Armin’s many accomplishments were recognized with induction into the York County Racing Club Hall of Fame in 2010.

But Armin’s accomplishments didn’t end there. He also organized the York Adams Elementary Football League (serving as its president and historian), was a past president of the Rotary Club International of Hanover, and served on the Littlestown School Board. Other community involvement included lifetime membership of the Hanover Church of the Brethren and membership in the McSherrystown Fish and Game and the Benevolent and Protective Order of the Elks.

Armin was the loving husband of Frances (Barnes) Hostetter, who passed in 1995, and is survived by companion Fern Hess; sons Barry (and wife Ella), Bradley (and his wife Cindy), and Perry

(and companion Mary Rickrode), all of Hanover; five grandchildren; and five great-grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his seven brothers and sisters.

Memorial contributions may be made to the York County Racing Club Injured Drivers Fund, 568 Yale Street, York, PA 17403; or to the York Adams Elementary Football League (Y.A.E.F.L.), P.O. Box 1254, Hanover, PA 17331.

Those who “believe” know that Armin Hostetter will continue to oversee the operation of “the farm.” He was laid to rest at Hostetter’s Meeting House Church Cemetery, located adjacent to the Hostetter farm and within sight of his beloved Trail-Way Speedway.

LINCOLN READY TO OPEN 2015 NORTHEAST OUTDOOR RACING SEASON FEBRUARY 21ST

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 2/8/13 – Only a two-inch coating of snow stands between Lincoln and opening day on Saturday afternoon, February 21st.

The “Icebreaker 30" for 410 Sprint Cars will kick off the 2015 outdoor racing season in the Northeast, and pay $4,000 to win. Action begins at 2:00 p.m., with gates opening at noon.

In fact, the “Icebreaker 30” is the first in a “Four for Four” series to open the season, with the first four Lincoln shows going 30 laps and paying $4,000 to win. All four programs begin at 2:00 p.m.

Celebrating its 63rd year, Lincoln Speedway continues a tradition of offering the world’s toughest, most competitive Saturday night sprint car racing. Super sprints have comprised the main class of racing at Lincoln Speedway since 1965, and the “410” sprints are featured in 29 of Lincoln's 35 race dates this year.

Exciting racing has become the trademark of Lincoln’s other “regular” division--the “358” sprint cars, which will be in action 19 times in 2015.

The super sportsman will make five appearances in the Pigeon Hills, culminating with the prestigious “Lawrence Chevrolet Sportsman 100” on Saturday, September 19th. The popular Central Pennsylvania Legends will make 11 stops in the Pigeon Hills this season. And the 358 late models will make three stops at Lincoln as part of a nine-race Trail-Way/Lincoln point series sponsored by Precise Racing Products.

In all, 14 different classes of race cars will dot the 2015 schedule, a season that is loaded with huge shows.

The famous World of Outlaws will return to Lincoln again this year for a special mid-week show on Wednesday, May 13th (a program which carries a rain date of 5/14).

Also making their return to Lincoln will be the Amsoil USAC wingless sprinters for a June 3rd mid-week show which will be part of that division’s “Eastern Storm” tour.

The National USAC Dirt Midget Series featuring upcoming driving sensation Rico Abreu will also make a stop at Lincoln on Wednesday, August 19th. The event is co-sanctioned by ARDC and marks the first time USAC’s National Midgets have competed in Pennsylvania in 26 years.

Lincoln will host two PENNSYLVANIA SPEEDWEEK shows on Saturday, June 27th (the 16th Annual Kevin Gobrecht Memorial paying $7,000 to win) and Thursday, July 2nd.

Among the other highlights of an historic season at Lincoln will be a “Dirt Classic Qualifier” (paying $7,000 to win) on Saturday, June 6th, the annual visit by the All-Star Circuit of Champions on Saturday, June 13th, and the 2015 editions of the annual Hilly Rife Memorial (May 23rd) and Hank Gentzler Memorial Manufacturers Appreciation Race (October 10th).

Topping off a spectacular 2015 season will be Lincoln’s Second Annual “Dirt Classic,” an event which will top last year’s record payout. That $20,000-to-win program will be run on Saturday, September 26th.

In addition, there will be special shows featuring kids “Big Wheel” racing, fireworks, and several auto racing “club” nights.

Because the Daytona 500 is scheduled for the next day, Lincoln will not have a rain/snow date for opening day. But Lincoln will utilize a Sunday rain/snow date for the next three shows (2/28, 3/7, and 3/14).

Lincoln switches to nighttime racing on March 21st, with the 358 late models joining the 410 sprint cars in a 6:00 p.m. start.

Port Royal – Bernheisel Race Components of Jonestown has announced its official product title sponsorship of the late model competition at Port Royal Speedway for the 2015 racing season.

Led by veteran late model racer and industry leader Jim Bernheisel, BRC will provide official product sponsorship for both the super late and econo late model classes at the track.

Bernheisel will host Manufacturer’s Appreciation Nights for both divisions during the season.

The 355-econo late models will have their special event on July 18 when they will compete in a 20-lap feature that also pays double points toward the season track title.

Each entrant in the race will receive a minimum value of $200 in racing components as part of the event.

For the super late models, August 1 will be BRC Manufacturer’s Night when the supers likewise will go extra distance for double points towards the title.

But also for the super late models BRC will offer up a FREE Lazer Chassis valued at $4,000 to the 2015 track champion if the driver who earns the crown does so aboard a Lazer machine.

And if the driver who claims the crown isn’t aboard a Lazer, Bernheisel will award the titlist a cool $1,000 for his efforts.

In total, Bernheisel Race Components will give away some $15,000 in component prizes to drivers in both late model divisions at Port Royal this season on top of the FREE Lazer Chassis or cash up for grabs.

“I believe that support needs to be given to local tracks, local drivers and local companies,” says Bernheisel of his decision to back efforts at Port Royal Speedway in 2015.

“And I’m stepping up to the plate and putting my money where my mouth is to do it.”

The super late models have just been inked for 22 appearances at Port Royal Speedway this season while the 355 econo late models will compete 14 times.
