Port Royal Sept. 7 & 8 Tuscarora 50 Races Could Establish 2018 All Stars Titlist

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

8/12/18

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Amid a torrid battle to be the 2018 Arctic Cat All Stars Circuit of Champions Sprint Cars series champion, the 51st annual, $51,000 to win All Stars Port Royal Speedway Tuscarora 50 stands in the way of a title.

For the big three of the All Stars this season battling for the crown, it will be no cakewalk for Aaron Reutzel, Carson Macedo and Chad Kemenah to navigate the two-day Tuscarora 50 All Stars stand at Port Royal.

Reutzel of Clute, Texas, is the current point leader by a fragile two-point margin over Lemoore, California’s Carson Macedo. And just 14 points back of Macedo is previous titlist Chad Kemenah of Findlay, Ohio.

Slated for September 7 and 8 at Port Royal Speedway, each of the All Stars Tuscarora 50 races will pay full points toward the 2018 All Stars championship standings but to get any of those valuable points during the coveted affair, Reutzel, Macedo and Kemenah will have to battle the entire Pennsylvania Posse not to mention some of the other shining sprint car stars the nation has to offer that will invade.

And if the fields for the shows are anything like the car counts that were in the 60s last year, it could be tough for any or all of the trio to even make the main events.

And that would spell disaster for any hopes of a series crown.

All eyes will undoubtedly be fixed on Port Royal Speedway when the two-day Tuscarora 50 affair blossoms into sprint car mania on September 7 and 8 and what they will be seeing will more than likely dictate just who becomes the 2018 All Stars champion.

The September 8 Tuscarora 50 race alone offers a total sprint car purse worth more than $105,000.

It will be a sprint car match up between the All Stars and the Pennsylvania Posse sprint cars spanning two days. It will be a sprint car spectacle. It will be the kind of event that makes or breaks a championship season.

And it will all be at the 164th annual Juniata County Fair and Port Royal Speedway in just under one month.

Presented by Ramsey’s Garage & Car Wash of Mifflintown as well as Packer’s Concessions of Centre Hall, the track marquee Tuscarora 50 event will conclude the weeklong Juniata County Fair that is held on the grounds surrounding the speedway.

The Night Before The 50 will be presented by former area promoter Tedd Reitz.

Advanced reserved admission seat tickets for the 51st annual Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions Sprints Tuscarora 50 at Port Royal Speedway are currently on sale.

Orders can be placed by phone during regular business hours by calling the speedway office at 717.527.4414. Walk-in orders will also be accepted.

Tickets for all phone order customers will be mailed via U.S. Mail.

Advanced reserved admission seat tickets are being offered for the Saturday night, September 8, 51st annual Tuscarora 50 event only.

The entirety of grandstand sections A – G (the original aluminum grandstand) will be reserved for the race along with rows 12 - 16 of sections H – O (the new aluminum grandstand).

This means that sections A – G will be reserved seating ONLY for the September 8, 51st annual Tuscarora 50, along with rows 12 – 16 in sections H - O. There will be NO general admission seating in these areas.

Rows 1 - 11 in sections H - O will be open general admission seating.

Advanced reserved admission seat price for September 8 is $40 for all seats, regardless of age.

The Tuscarora 50 raindate is Sunday, September 9 and as such THERE WILL BE NO REFUNDS of advanced ticket purchases should the raindate need to be utilized.

Day-of general admission prices for the huge All Stars Circuit Of Champions September 8 Tuscarora 50 event have been set at $35 for adults and $20 for students ages 12 - 18. Ages 11 and under will be free.

General admission prices for the Friday, September 7 All Stars Night Before The 50 are $30 for adults and $15 for students ages 12 – 18. Ages 11 and under will be free.

In addition to ongoing seat sales, reserved camping spots for fair week are also on sale.

Reservation cost for the entire week is $60.

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY BEATS THE RAIN SATURDAY: KELLER, FRYE, HULSON & LAWTON SCORE THRILLING VICTORIES!

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – When the skies cleared of rain and race cars hit the track Saturday at Selinsgrove Speedway, fans were on the edge of their seats from flag to flag in what was another exciting night of dirt track racing on the half-mile oval.

Cody Keller of Selinsgrove drove to his first win in two years in the 25-lap 360 sprint car feature. Keller earned $2,000 in a borrowed Mach 1 Chassis house car for his sixth career win in 358-360 sprint car competition at Selinsgrove.

Coleby Frye of Dover scored the win in the 25-lap Moon Shine Camo Route 35 Challenge Series for super late models after an intense wheel to wheel duel at the front the pack. The $2,200 victory was Frye’s second of the season and 19th career at Selinsgrove.

When the leaders tangled in the 15-lap pro stock feature, Shaun Lawton of Bloomsburg inherited the lead and went to win his fifth race of the year, while Rick Hulson of Millersville, Md., held off late-race challenges for the 20-lap Mid-Atlantic modified checkers.

Selinsgrove Speedway is back with another action-packed racing program at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 18, featuring the 360 sprint cars, limited late models, pro stocks, and roadrunners sponsored by Heller’s Gas. Track gates will open at 5 p.m.

Second-place starter Michael Walter drove around polesitter Ryan Higgins for the early lead in the sprint car feature. On the second circuit fourth-place starter Cody Keller pressured Higgins for the runner up position and took over the spot on lap four.

An intense battle for the third position unfolded between eighth-place starter Davie Franek and sixth-place starter Chad Layton. Steve Buckwalter, who started 11th, also joined the race for third.

The caution flag unfurled on lap 14 when Brandon McGough tagged the outside wall in turn four. When the race resumed, a war on wheels for the lead took place between Walter and Keller. The two young guns see-sawed for the lead until Keller secured the front spot on lap 15 with an inside pass in turns three and four.

With Keller leading and Walter holding down second, another torrid race for third between Franek, Layton and seventh-place Jason Shultz stole the show. At the finish, Keller was victorious over Walter, Layton, Franek, and Shultz.

In the super late model feature, polesitter Andy Haus pulled into the lead over front row starter Jerry Bard. Third-place starter Bryan Bernheisel made an inside pass in turn one by Bard to take over second.

The event’s first caution flag waved on lap two when Tim Wilson’s car came to a stop in turn two. On the lap three restart, Haus held the lead with Bernheisel, Bard, fourth-place starter Hayes Mattern and eighth-place starter Coleby Frye in pursuit.

At the halfway point, Dan Green spun in turn four and collected Jeff Rine, who was able to rejoin the race at the back of the pack. On the restart, Frye raced under Bernheisel for second in turn two when Bernheisel lost the handle and spun.

On the ensuing restart, Haus led Frye with fifth-place starter Dylan Yoder showing some speed in the third position. On lap 19, the caution flag waved again when last week’s winner Rance Garlock stopped on the backstretch.

On the lap 20 restart, Frye dived to the inside of Haus in turn one and drifted high only to have the leaders make contact. Haus’ car then rolled to a stop entering turn three ending his chances of a victory. Despite some damage to the back of Frye’s car, he held onto the lead and fended off Yoder in the final laps of the race for the win by the slimmest of margins.

Ninth-place starter Shaun Jones, Bard, and Rine completed the top five.

In the modified main event, polesitter Ray Kable grabbed the early lead and was challenged by fourth-place starter Rick Hulson. On the third circuit, Hulson took command of the field with an outside pass in turns three and four and opened up a comfortable lead.

On lap four, second-place starter Brad Kling raced in the runner up spot and attempted to reel in the leader. A lap later, third-place starter Mike Altobelli Jr drove by Kable for the third position.

With Hulson holding a good lead, a battle for the top five spots took place behind him also involving fifth-place starter Jim Bernheisel. Late-race cautions regrouped the field and set up a chase to the checkered between Hulson and Altobelli.

In the final laps, Hulson and Altobelli raced wheel to wheel for the lead and win. At the checkered flag, Hulson narrowly scored the win over Altobelli, Kling, eighth-place starter Mike Corbin, and 10th-place starter Alyssa Rove.

Polesitter Cory long led at the onset of the pro stock feature. The race was slowed on the first lap when Jake Buck and points leader Kyle Bachman collided in turn four with Bachman able to rejoin the race.

On the restart, fifth-place starter AJ Hoffman and fourth-place starter Brandon Moser dueled for the lead. Hoffman and Moser swapped the lead several times while third-place starter Shaun Lawton raced in their shadows in third.

Entering turn three on the 12th lap, Moser and Hoffman made contact and slid to a stop against the outside guardrail. Lawton inherited the lead and held off fifth-place starter AJ Stroup and Bachman for the win. Long and Brad Myers completed the top five.

FREDDIE RAHMER PICKS UP THIRD 410 SPRINT FEATURE WIN OF THE SEASON AT LINCOLN SPEEDWAY;

Tyler Ross Scores 358 Sprint Victory; Brett Peters Dominates Vintage Modified Shootout

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 8/11/2018 – Freddie Rahmer has beaten the best local talent, and the best in the nation. At 22 years old, the third generation racer continues to race beyond his years and out from under the shadow of his legendary father “Fast Freddie” Rahmer.

On a relatively normal Saturday night 410 sprint show at Lincoln Speedway Freddie Rahmer set fast time in time trials. Then started on the pole of the 25-lap feature by luck of the draw after finishing third in his heat. He grabbed the lead at the drop of the green over outside front row starter Chad Trout in the feature and led the entire distance to pick up his third win of the Year at the Fabulous Lincoln Speedway.

But the win wasn’t certain as the hectic non-stop laps wound down.

Trout was doing everything he could to keep pace with the leader. But at the halfway mark Trout bounced off the outside wall exiting the second turn. That opened the door for fourth-starting Brian Montieth.

Montieth took advantage of Trout’s miscue and drove by him into second place heading up the backstretch.

“I figured Montieth was coming,” said Rahmer matter-of-factly. “I seen on the board he was second and I wasn’t doing a very good job in lapped cars at one point…we got it done, but we’ve got to do better for next time if we want to win the big races here, even the normal nights.”

Rahmer, who had registered a magical win over the World of Outlaws a few weeks earlier at the Pigeon Hills oval, had opened up what may have seemed like a comfortable lead of almost three and a half seconds with 10 laps to go.

But as most Lincoln fans know, you never count out the four-time 2018 winner and six-time track champ Brian “The Edge” Montieth.

After 20 non-stop laps it was evident Montieth was closing. Closing fast.

But just as Montieth pulled up to Rahmer’s rear bumper heading down the front stretch completing the 22nd lap, disaster struck last week’s feature winner.

Rahmer and Montieth had to deal with a lapped car as they heading into the first turn. Rahmer did what he had done most of the race, he drove high onto the cushion. Montieth went low.

Montieth suddenly had the lapped car blocking his path and pitched his sprinter sideways to the inside to try and cut some speed. But it was not enough as the back end of his sprinter snapped around in his desperate attempt to avoid the lapped car and came to a stop. The race’s only caution waved. And just as quickly as Montieth’s charge begun, it was now over as he sat in the first turn.

Rahmer was free of lapped traffic, but now had Trout, Kyle Moody, Anthony Macri and Gerard McIntyre right on his bumper for a three-lap shootout.

Rahmer didn’t falter as the green waved and drove to the top of the track and raced unchallenged the final laps en route to his seventh career win at Lincoln Speedway.

“The way the track was there it was only really one choice,” said Rahmer on the 23rd lap restart. “I got the wing front and tried to make good laps on the top…I didn’t go through down here the last lap very good, but it worked out.”

“We’ll improve on that,” said Rahmer quickly added. “Our cars are where they need to be, I just need to be a little better there.”

Trout, who had bounced off the wall hard at mid-race, finished second, with Macri third, Moody fourth, and McIntyre fifth.

Completing the top-10 were 12th-starting Chase Dietz, Alan Krimes, Tim Glatfelter, Cory Haas, and Adam Wilt.

Amazingly Montieth rebounded from his 23rd lap miscue and was able to finish 11th as only the top-13 cars finished on the lead lap.

Heats for the 410 Sprints were won by McIntyre, Trout, and Macri, with Matt Campbell winning the consolation. Fast time in time trials over the 26-car field was set by Freddie Rahmer with a 1-lap time of 13.321-seconds (101.344 MPH).

Lincoln University’s Tyler Ross took advantage of race-leader Tyler Walton’s misfortune with three laps to go in the 20-lap 358 sprint feature to pick up his first Lincoln Speedway win of 2018.

Walton, who had picked up his first career win a few weeks earlier, had taken the lead from Ashley Cappetta on the seventh lap and appeared to be on his way for his second win of the year.

Just as Walton was about to get the two laps to go signal exiting the fourth turn he saddened caught the cushion and was sucked hard into the outside wall, nearly flipping.

At this point Ross, who had started 11th, had worked his way around Cappetta into second place with seven laps to go.

Ross now had the lead for the restart, and like the 410 sprint feature before him, had a three-lap shootout for the win, with Brent Shearer, Cappetta, Jeff Halligan and Matt Findley right behind.

Ross lead the final three laps for the win in his Dick Smith/Tom Rumsey General Contracting No.41B sprinter.

Halligan passed Cappetta and Shearer during the final laps to finish second, with Shearer, current point leader Troy Wagaman, Jr. and Cappetta rounding out the top-five.

Rounding out the top-10 were Findley, 16th-starting Kody Hartlaub, Cody Fletcher, Steve Wilbur, and 18th-starting Dylan Norris.

Heats for the 22 358 Sprints were won by Gregg Foster, Travis Scott, and Walton.

Landsdale’s Brett Peters took the lead from polesitter Todd Lapp on the third lap and never looked back en route to a convincing win in the 15-lap Vintage Modified Shootout feature.

Lapp settled for second, with Ricky Rutt third, Scott Rickrode fourth, and Flick fifth.

Completing the top-10 were Randy Minich, Travis McClelland, Jim Mintor, Danny Holmes, and Charlie Summers.

Heats for the 17 Vintage Modifieds were won by Peters and Flick.

Next Saturday night, August 18TH, it will be YORK COUNTY RACING (YCRC) CLUB NIGHT featuring the 410 Sprints in a “Shootout” series event and begins the final countdown in the season-long race for the Lawrence Chevrolet 410 Sprint Track Championship with only three (3) point races remaining (8/18, 8/25, 9/1). They will be joined by the 358 Sprints and Street Stocks. Competition Pit gates will open at 5 PM, Spectator Pit Admission & General Admission gates will open at 5:30 PM.

HEIMBACH, GARLOCK & LAWTON THRILL FANS
WITH WHEEL-TO-WHEEL RACING ON SUPER SELINSGROVE TRACK SURFACE!

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Blane Heimbach of Selinsgrove scored his second $5,000-to-win 360 sprint car race of the season at Selinsgrove Speedway in the 18th annual Mach 1 Chassis Open Saturday night.

The race was one of the most exciting of the year with the front runners exchanging the lead, pulling off slide jobs, and then having Heimbach make a late-race charge by Chad Layton of Harrisburg to take the win in the 30-lap main event.

Earlier this season Heimbach won $5,000 in the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series event at the track.

The win was Heimbach’s 38th career in 358-360 sprint car competition at the Snyder County oval at the wheel of the Creasy Signs/Goff Racing No. 12.

Rance Garlock of Three Springs held off multiple challenges for the lead and win for his $2,000 first career victory at Selinsgrove Speedway in the 25-lap super late model race, while Shaun Lauton of Bloomsburg fended off Brandon Moser of Middleburg for his fourth checkered flag of the year in the 15-lap pro stock race.

Selinsgrove Speedway is back in action at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 11, with the 360 sprint cars, super late models in a Moon Shine Camo Route 35 Challenge Series race, the Mid-Atlantic modifieds, and pro stocks. Track gates will open at 5 p.m.

Polesitter Chad Layton stormed into the lead at the start of the 360 sprint car feature and was chased by fourth-place starter Cody Keller. The caution flag regrouped the field on lap two when Derek Locke’s car lost a front wheel and spun in turn two.

When the race resumed, a torrid battle for the lead unfolded between Layton and Keller, with each driver pulling off slide jobs through the corners and swapping the lead. Racing a close third was front row starter Kyle Reinhardt.

Through lap 10, Layton and Keller see-sawed for the lead with Reinhardt in striking distance. Reinhardt made a move for second on the 10th circuit and set his sights on Layton. At the halfway point, Layton had another serious challenger for the lead in the form on Reinhardt.

With 10 laps to race, Layton led Reinhardt, eighth-place starter JJ Grasso, seventh-place starter Blane Heimbach, and Keller. An intense battle for the third position took place between Grasso and Heimbach until Heimbach secured the spot on lap 22. Two laps later Heimbach soared around Reinhardt and started to reel in Layton in the final laps.

Racing out of turn four on the 28th lap, Heimbach made the winning pass using the inside lane. Layton attempted to get the lead back to no avail. Heimbach was victorious by just 2.3 seconds over Layton, Grasso, 12th-place starter Davie Franek, and Reinhardt.

Front row starters Dan Green and Rance Garlock drag raced down the frontstretch at the start of the late model feature with Garlock pulling into the early lead. On the second circuit, third-place starter Jim Yoder drove by Green for the runner up position and closed in on Garlock.

At the completion of lap five, Garlock was leading fourth-place starter Hayes Mattern, Yoder, points leader and eighth-place starter Bryan Bernheisel, and sixth-place starter Kenny Trevitz.

The caution flag regrouped the field on lap eight when Randy Christine spun in turns three and four. At the halfway point, Garlock was being pressured by Berheisel and seventh-place starter Brett Schadel as he was also showing a lot of speed.

Mattern withdrew from the race on lap 15 as the race at the front of the pack got intense. Schadel passed Bernheisel for second and began challenging Garlock for the lead until the caution flag came out for Jim Yoder’s racer in turn four.

On a lap 18 restart, Schadel was able to get around Garlock for the lead only to have it called back due to another caution flag. With five laps to race, Bernheisel reclaimed second and threatened Garlock for the lead and win. At the checkered flag, Garlock took the win by a mere .28 of a second over Bernheisel, Schadel, Christine rebounded for fourth, and Trevitz.

Front row starters Shaun Lawton and Tommy Slanker dueled for the early lead until Lawton secured the front spot in the pro stock feature. Third-place starter Brandon Moser drove by Slanker on the second lap for the runner up position and started to gain real estate on Lawton.

By lap five, Lawton was leading Moser and Slanker while a close battle for fourth took place between fourth-place starter Kyle Bachman and fifth-place starter AJ Hoffman.

With five laps to race, a three-wide race took place for the third position between Slanker, Bachman and Hoffman. In the final laps, Moser made a last-ditch effort to get around Lawton for the lead and win but came up short by the slimmest of margins. Moser settled for second with Hoffman, Slanker, and Bachman rounding out the top five.

Logan Wagner Wins Second Of Season In Port Royal Sprints, Gene Knaub Wins Oval First In Late Models

Newlin Gets Season Second In 305s As Eric Irvin Gets First Of Year In Econos

8/4/18

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Logan Wagner scored his second win of the season for the Zemco stables at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night, taking the $3,600 sprint car main over Rick Lafferty.

The 22-lap super late model main saw Dover’s Gene Knaub record his first-ever oval division win for a $2,000 payday by holding off a surging Andy Haus.

The 18-lap 305 sprint car main was a thrilling event that went non stop with Newport’s Zach Newlin claiming his second oval checkers of the season while Eric Irvin claimed the econo late model main to close out the night.

Second starter Justin Whittal of Medford, New Jersey took the lead at the start of the 25-lap 410 sprint car main with Kody Lehman and Rick Lafferty giving chase.

The first 18 laps of the event would go non-stop before the only caution flag of the race unfurled.

And during those 18 laps, eighth starter Logan Wagner stormed to the front, up to third on the fourth circuit, behind Lafferty.

It took Wagner seven laps to muscle by Lafferty for second before making an attempt to steal the lead.

But a swoop into the third turn shortly after getting second failed to net him the top spot and instead it allowed Whittal to get away during the ensuing laps.

In fact, Whittal was comfortably in front of Wagner’s No. 1 when the aforementioned caution lights came on for a stopped Dylan Cisney on the frontstretch.

Cisney was running in fourth when he blew a right rear tire in front of a challenging Lucas Wolfe with Wolfe narrowly avoiding major contact.

The caution wiped out a more than one second lead held by Whittal and on the restart, instead of Wagner taking a shot for the win it was Lafferty blasting to the bottom in the first turn.

But Wagner was up to the challenge and held on to second while trying to keep the leader in his sights.

Whittal seemed to be struggling in the turns with five laps to go but still Wagner didn’t close dramatically but then as the pair raced toward the line for the two-to-go sign, Whittal seemed to slip high, allowing Wagner to zoom by for control in a sudden turn of events.

Whittal then zinged down across the track, grazing the inside frontstretch barrier as he worked to keep his wheels underneath all the while losing more spots, to both Lafferty and Wolfe.

Wagner then blasted to the win by 3.897 seconds over the final two laps, followed by Lafferty, Wolfe, Whittal and Jared Esh.

Sixth through 10th went to Tyler Reeser, Mike Wagner, Trenton Sheaffer, Kody Lehman and Joe Kata III.

Heats went to Cisney and Logan Wagner.

Gene Knaub would lead all 22 laps of the super late model main, most of it with Tim Wilson racing in second.

Three caution flags and a red flag hampered Knaub’s pace.

The red flag appeared on the seventh tour when the cars of Tim Smith Jr., Trent Brenneman and Dillan Stake connected in the third turn.

The final restart with two laps to go found Knaub and Wilson followed by Dylan Yoder, Andy Haus and Jeff Rine.

And when action resumed, Haus zoomed to the low side in the first and second turns to dig by both Yoder and Wilson to take over second with a lap to go.

Haus then shot across the bottom in the first and second turns on the final lap to try to steal the win but his car pushed up the track, allowing Knaub to get away to the victory by 1.060 seconds.

Wilson was third followed by Yoder and Rine.

Sixth through 10th went to Dan Stone, Kyle Lear, Roy Deese Jr., Andrew Yoder and Chad Myers.

Heats went to Deese, Rine and Wilson.

Zach Newlin would win the 18-lap 305 sprint main but only after a wild fracas for the win staged between he, Kyle Smith and Drew Ritchey.

Smith started 12th in the field and rolled around the top groove on the opening lap to be sitting fourth when it was completed.

He battled with Ritchey for the first half of the event for second before taking the spot with six laps to go.

Both he and Ritchey then closed on leader Newlin and raced just off of each others bumpers for the final six laps with Newlin outlasting repeated attempted passed for control by Smith with Ritchey waiting to pounce.

Newlin and Smith were side by side more than once including in the final turns but Newlin won the race back to the line for the victory by .172 seconds.

Ritchey was third followed by 16th starter Ken Duke Jr. and Ron Aurand.

Sixth through 10th went to Jonathan Jones, Jaremi Hanson, Nick Sweigart, Tyler Denochik and Austin Bishop.

Heats were won by Newlin, Hanson, Sweigart and Jeff Miller. John Scarborough won the consolation race.

Derick Garman led the first two circuits of the econo late model main before Tim Krape drove by for the lead.

A restart on lap seven saw Eric Irvin blast by Krape for the lead and win.

Irvin amassed a 2.023 second lead by the finish with Krape finishing second followed by Todd Snook, Tim Fedder and Kenny Yoder.

BRIAN MONTIETH WINS FOURTH LINCOLN SPEEDWAY 410 SPRINT FEATURE OF 2018;

Wyatt Hinkle earns second career 358 Sprint win; Joe Brown wins Classic Racing Series “Dizzy Dean” Memorial

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 8/4/2018 – Brian Montieth admits they really doesn’t think about the number of wins he has. All he does is think about the race in front of him each night. And for his legion of fans who call Lincoln Speedway home most Saturday nights, that’s just fine by them.

Montieth started on the pole, survived three stoppages of action due to red flags, and raced away to his fourth win of the year in the 25-lap 410 sprint feature Saturday night at Lincoln Speedway.

“The heat races were everything when they start like this (heads up from heat race finish),” said Montieth matter-of-factly standing next to his winning Premier Autoworks No.21 sprint car in victory lane. “The track was good, fast, and it was pretty even…the heat race (win) was everything.”

“We don’t even think about it…we just come out here to race,” said Montieth following his 59th career win when asked his thoughts on closing in on Kenny Weld for 4th place on Lincoln Speedway’s all time win list. “People ask me where I finished at a certain track, on a certain night and I honestly don’t know.”

“I only know what is in front of me while we’re sitting here on the front stretch. Last week we didn’t do well as a team and all we knew was we needed to step up our game this week.”

After what Montieth called a bad night of racing last week (7th place), all he and his Premier Autoworks team wanted to do was to do better. And that they did.

Starting 7th in the first heat of the night, Montieth simply did what he needed to do. Win his heat and start on the pole for the feature. So, he went out and won it.

Now it was a matter of putting together 25 laps better than the week before.

At the start Montieth jumped in front after a spirited opening lap duel with outside front row starter Tim Wagaman. After five laps, and starting to close on lapped traffic, the 1st of 3 red flags waved when Tyler Ross rolled in turn four.

The restart saw much of the same as he continued to lead the field and opened up over two seconds on second place Wagaman they headed into lapped traffic with 10 laps in the books.

Wagaman and third-starting Scott Fisher tried to chase down Montieth as the non-stop lapped traffic got heavier and heavier.

But suddenly on the 20th lap the racing stopped. Montieth’s teammate Austin Hogue, driver of the No.21X sprinter, appeared to lose his brakes heading into the first turn, slammed into the outer wall and flipped up into the catch fence. With his car resting on it’s side, the red flag waved, and emergency crews descended onto the accident scene.

After many agonizing minutes, Hogue was extricated from the car, placed onto a stretcher, and taken to a nearby hospital.

“We were just hoping everything was alright,” said Montieth when asked about the accident involving his teammate. “They said he was okay, knew where he was at, and was moving everything, so he’s pretty good.”

Other than talking and moving his extremities, no further information on Hogue’s condition was available at this time.

When they got back to racing Montieth continued where he left off with five laps to go and lead the field again until the final red flag of the night waved with only four laps to go when Cole Young rolled his sprinter in turns three and four. Young was okay.

But now Montieth had Glenndon Forsythe on his bumper for the restart after Forsythe got by Wagaman on the previous restart for the runner-up spot.

But the result was the same. With a clear track ahead, Montieth raced away to his fourth win of the year.

“It was a good race track but it took an hour and a half longer than I wanted it too,” said Montieth with a smile. “I was way better in clean air and when I started to get into lapped cars there we got way tight.”

“I didn’t want to see red (flags), but definitely yellows. It was going to get interesting with the traffic. There was no where to go in traffic in front of me when we got up to the middle of the pack. But everything played out the way it needed to today that’s for sure.”

Forsythe settled for second, with Cory Haas coming from his 12th starting spot to pass Wagaman in the closing laps for third.

“We wrecked that car with Danny (Dietrich) a few weeks ago, which was unfortunate,” added Montieth. “But I think it was the best thing to happen to us because this car is a heck of a lot better…”.

Wagaman and 13th-starting Anthony Macri finished fourth and fifth respectively.

Completing the top-10 were Chad Trout, Brandon Rahmer, Jim Siegel, 20th-starting Freddie Rahmer, and 15th-starting Kyle Moody.

Heats for the 24 410 Sprints on hand were won by Montieth, Wagaman, and Fisher.

East Berlin’s Wyatt Hinkle survived a caution with only two laps to go to hang on for his second career win in the 20-lap 358 sprint feature.

After losing the lead, and ultimately the race, under nearly the same circumstances a week ago to Tyler Walton, Hinkle now had the same or even harder of situation with only two laps to go.

A group of cars with late-race surges were now on his bumper. They included Steve Owings, Tyler Ross, and Scott Geesey.

But Hinkle was not to be denied this night as he held off the restart challenge of Owings and raced away to take the checkered .84-seconds ahead for his 2nd career win in the 358 Sprint feature.

Owings, Ross and Geesey followed with 11th-starting Troy Wagaman, Jr. finishing fifth.

Completing the top-10 were 14th-starting Brent Shearer, Cody Fletcher, Kyle Denmyer, 12th-starting Tyler Walton, and Matt Findley.

Heats for the 23 358 Sprints on hand were won by Trey Hivner, Walton, and Geesey.

Joe Brown passed Dylan Brown on the eighth lap and raced to the win in the 20-lap “Dizzy Dean” Renfro Memorial for the Classic Racing Series.

Neal Reamer finished second, Wes Brown third, Dylan Brown fourth, and Charlie Summers fifth.

Heats for the 13 Classic Racing Series cars on hand were won by Dylan Brown and Neal Reamer.

Next Saturday night, August 11th, Lincoln Speedway swings back into action with the special time trial 410 Sprint show, along with the 358 Sprinters and the Vintage Modified Shootout cars.

SMITH & SCARBOROUGH SPLIT OPEN WHEEL VICTORIES IN 360’s & 305’s;
BACHMAN & IMES WIN PRO STOCKS & ROADRUNNERS;
WATERS MAKES EMOTIONAL BEHIND-THE-WHEEL RETURN TO SELINSGROVE

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Mark Smith of Sunbury secured the lead in Saturday night’s 25-lap 360 sprint car feature at Selinsgrove Speedway on the fourth circuit and drove to his third win of the season at the track.

The $2,000 victory was Smith’s 25th career in 358-360 sprint car racing at the Snyder County oval at the wheel of the Mach 1 Chassis No. 1.

Johnny Scarborough made it two-for-two in the 305 sprint car division at Selinsgrove this season when the Bomoseen, Vermont, driver bested a strong 32-car field.

Kyle Bachman of Selinsgrove scored his fourth win of the season and 49th career in the 15-lap pro stock main event, while Kevin Imes of McCalisterville won $1,000 in the 15-lap roadrunner invitational.

Jake Waters of Mifflintown, who was seriously injured in racing accident at the track on July 3, 2016, made an emotional behind-the-wheel return to Selinsgrove in the 305 sprint car division and drove to a solid fifth-place finish.

Selinsgrove Speedway is back in action at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 4, with the 18th annual Mach 1 Chassis National Open for 360 sprint cars paying $5,000 to win and $300 to start out of the $17,000-plus purse. The super late models and pro stocks will also be on the racing card. The rain date, if needed, will be Sunday, Aug. 5, at 7 p.m.

Front row starters Colby Womer and Eddie Strada drag raced into the first turn for the early lead in the 360 sprint car main event. Womer emerged out of turn two with the race lead. Sxith-place starter Mark Smith quickly worked his way into the runner-up position.

Womer led through lap three, when Smith made the winning pass using the inside lane out of turn four. On the eighth lap, third-place starter Michael Walter showed some speed and drove into the runner up position.

The race’s first caution flag unfurled on lap 11 when Ryan Linder’s car rolled to a stop in turn turn. On the ensuing restart, Smith set the pace with eighth-place starter Jason Shultz on the move. Shultz got by Womer for second on lap 15 and set his sights on Smith.

The field was regrouped on lap 23 when Mike Koehler brought out the caution flag with a flat tire on his machine. Smith led the rest of the way and posted a 1.3-second margin of victory over Shultz. Derek Locke, Walter, and Davie Franek rounded out the top five.

In the 305 sprint car feature, polesitter Johnny Scarborough edged out front row starter Jake Waters for the lead. Waters chased Scarborough through lap nine when on a restart seventh-place starter Zach Newlin stormed around both Austin Bishop and Waters for the runner up position.

At the halfway point, Newlin was gaining on the leader and in slower traffic moved into striking distance. Newlin made a last ditch effort to snag the lead and win but came up a mere .28 of a second short at the finish line. Ken Duke, Bishop, and Waters rounded out the top five.

A multi-car tangle opened the pro stock race with most of the cars rejoining for the restart. Front row starter AJ Stroup pulled into the early lead until fifth-place starter Brandon Moser took command of the field.

Sixth-place starter Kyle Bachman reeled in Moser and dueled for the lead for several laps until Bachman gained control on lap six. Bachman stretched his lead in the final laps and posted a 1.3-second margin of victory over Moser. Tommy Slanker, Cory Long, and Shaun Lawton rounded out the top five.

Polesitter Dustin Hoffman powered into the early lead in the roadrunner race. On a lap two restart, fifth-place starter Ryan Leister made a pass for the front spot with Hoffman and Will Brunson racing for second.

On the fifth circuit, Brunson and Hoffman made contact in turn four, with both of their cars receiving damage. Ryan Zook also withdrew from the race. On the lap six restart, Kevin Imes took over the lead with Bob Bussey and Keith Bissinger in pursuit.

In a one-lap chase to the checkered, Imes held off Bussey by just .04 of a second for the win. Bissinger, Jake Jones, and Terry Kramer rounded out the top five.

CHASE DIETZ SCORES THIRD CAREER LINCOLN WIN IN 410 SPRINT FEATURE;

Tyler Walton Picks Up Career-first Lincoln Speedway 358 Sprint Win; Michael Altobelli, Jr. Dominates Mid-Atlantic Modifieds

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 7/28/2018 – York’s Chase Dietz survived 23 grueling non-stop laps through heavy lapped traffic and fought off the late-race challenges of Adam Wilt to record his third career win in the 25-lap 410 sprint feature Saturday night at the Fabulous Lincoln Speedway.

By virtue of his heat win earlier in the night, Dietz outraced fellow heat winner and polesitter Randy Baughman to lead the first lap at the start of the 25-lap feature. Fourth-starting Tim Glatfelter got by Baughman for the runner-up spot on the second lap, just before the only stoppage of action on the third.

Austin Hogue stopped in turn two on the third lap to bring out the caution. Little did anyone think at that time it was the last.

Dietz immediately went back to work on the top-side of the track on the restart and pulled away to nearly a one second lead over Glatfelter as the front-runners entered lapped traffic on the ninth lap.

With lapped cars battling for position all around the leaders, Dietz continued to make the high-groove work and opened up a one and a half second lead on Glatfelter with 10 laps to go.

Lapped cars started to became a serious issue as the laps wound down and forced Dietz off the top groove several occasions, allowing Glatfelter and sixth-starting Adam Wilt close the gap.

Wilt began to assert himself with five laps to go and got around Glatfelter for second in heavy lapped traffic with five laps to go. At the same time the race-leading Dietz got bottled up behind several lapped cars and suddenly saw Wilt to his inside with three laps to go.

And so the race was on to the checkered as Dietz and Wilt tried desperately to find an opening to get clear of the lapped cars.

Dietz found the opening he needed and slipped away over the final two laps to take the checkered .59-seconds ahead for his first 410 sprint win at Lincoln since July 16th 2016.

“I had lapped cars fighting for position and just did what I could to stay in front,” said a happy Dietz as he celebrated with family and friends in victory lane.

Wilt settled for a hard-fought second place finish, with Glatfelter finishing third.

Ninth-starting Alan Krimes and 10th-starting Jim Siegel finished fourth and fifth respectively.

Completing the top-10 were Matt Campbell, 15th-starting Brian Montieth, Tyler Ross, 21st-starting Brandon Rahmer, and 17th-starting Kyle Moody.

Heats for the 24 410 Sprints on hand were won by Scott Fisher, Baughman, and Dietz.

After winning nearly everything there was to win in micro-sprint racing, Mifflintown’s Tyler Walton had yet to win in a 358 sprinter at Lincoln Speedway. That was until Saturday night.

Just as it appeared Walton was going to settle for second behind Wyatt Hinkle in the 20-lap 358 sprint feature, a caution followed by a red flag for three flipping cars battling for top-five positions with five laps to go.

The restart gave Walton the opportunity he needed and immediately drove hard into the first turn as the race went back to green and slipped around Hinkle for the lead.

From there Walton drove away over the final five laps to record his first career Lincoln Speedway 358 Sprint win, and the second over his career since moving up from the micro-sprint sprint ranks a year ago.

Hinkle had to settle for second after leading the first 15 laps, with 12th-starting Troy Wagaman, Jr. finishing third, Dwight Leppo fourth, and Trey Hivner fifth.

Completing the top-10 were 14th-starting Kody Hartlaub, polesitter Jake Galloway, Dylan Norris, 16th-starting Kyle Denmyer, and 23rd-starting Tyler Ross.

Heats for the 26 358 Sprinters on hand were won by Walton, Galloway, and Brent Shearer.

Saxton’s Michael Altobelli, Jr. added to his great 2018 racing season with a dominating win in the 20-lap Mid-Atlantic Modified feature at Lincoln Speedway.

Altobelli grabbed the lead from outside front row starter Rick Hulson on the second lap and then put on a clinic the remaining 18 laps, surviving four cautions en route to the win.

A final caution with two laps to go set up a possible shootout with the veteran Hulson who had not given up after being passed for the lead on the second lap.

But Altobelli was not to be denied this night as he drove away the final laps for another convincing 2018 win.

Hulson settled for second, with polesitter James Sparks third, June 16th Lincoln winner Ray Kable fourth, and Justin Cullum fifth.

Completing the top-10 were Brent Hamilton, Mike Corbin, Ray Cicerrele, Josh Hughs, and Cody Oliver.

Heats for the 22 Mid-Atlantic Modifieds on hand were won by Brad Kling, Altobelli, and Rick Hulson.

Next Saturday night, August 4th, Lincoln Speedway swings back into action with the 410 Sprints and 358 Sprints being joined by the Classic Racing Series. In addition, the York Flooring KIDS BIG WHEEL RACES will be held for the final time in 2018.

Dewease Passes Dietrich For Port Royal Dream Race Victory, Pockets $12,450 Colton Flinner Wins Moon Shine Camo Super Late Model Main

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 7/28/18

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Lance Dewease of Fayetteville won the second Living Legend Dream Race of his career at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night to notch his 110th career oval victory, worth $10,000.

Dewease overtook Danny Dietrich in traffic on the 12th lap of the 35-lap maint to pick up the win after also claiming one of the semi-mains earlier in the night, worth $2,000.

In the 25-lap Moon Shine Camo Rt. 35 Series super late model main, it was Colton Flinner of Allison Park taking the $2,200 victory after dueling with Tim Wilson for his first career oval victory.

Dietrich drew the pole and Dewease the second starting spot for the 410 sprint car Dream Race and Dietrich rushed into the lead on the first lap although Dewease tried to sneak into control early.

Only three laps of the event were recorded before the only caution flag of the race unfurled for Dylan Cisney who was stopped on the backstretch after breaking a rear end on his car.

Dietrich chose the inside line for the double file restart and got away from Dewease’s No. 69K when green reappeared.

With 10 laps down, Dietrich held a .701 second lead over Dewease, just before he entered the rear of the field on the 11th tour.

And it was in that traffic that Dewease was able to snare control when Dietrich set his No. 48 into the first corner to work by a lapped car.

As Dietrich drove low to get by the car he also failed to hold a stead line, instead sliding up across the racetrack and as he was sliding, Dewease was biting fast on the low side through the turns.

The pair drag raced onto the backchute before Dewease blasted across the middle of the third corner to slide up in front of Dietrich for good as the pair raced off of the fourth corner.

The race for second heated up next as Brock Zearfoss caught Dietrich on the 19th tour and swapped the spot with him.

But Dietrich was up to the task and continued to hold the position until lap 24 when Zearfoss seized second, leaving Dietrich to content with Logan Schuchart.

Dewease had a straightaway lead with four laps to go as he continued to pull away, taking the eventual win by 5.398 seconds.

Dietrich regrouped late in the race and was able to sneak by Zearfoss and reclaim second on the final lap with Zearfoss settling for third.

After starting 13th, Freddie Rahmer put on a show from start to finish, motoring front to finish fourth and collect a $250 Hard Charger Award.

Schuchart finished where he started in fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Greg Hodnett, Lucas Wolfe, Mike Wagner, Jacob Allen and James McFadden.

Twin semi mains worth $2,000 each were taken earlier in the night by McFadden and Dewease.

McFadden out raced and held off Logan Wagner to win the first semi with Dietrich finishing third.

Wagner did get by McFadden for the lead briefly on the eighth tour.

Dewease took his semi main victory over Logan Schuchart and Brock Zearfoss with Schuchart blasting into second on the first lap.

Logan Wagner set overall fast time on the night with a lap of 16.250 seconds.

Dewease took home a total of $12,450 for his night’s work including $200 to lead lap 27 and $250 to lead lap 22.

It was his fourth win of the season at the track and moved him to within 19 of tying Keith Kauffman on the track all-time win list.

Gene Knaub looked shot out of a cannon when the 25-lap super late model main got started and was driving away from the field on the seventh lap when he blew a tire, surrendering the point to Tim Wilson.

Wilson had Colton Flinner and Matt Parks in pursuit after getting the lead and Flinner proved a challenge as the race wore on.

The front pair was racing closely, side by side on the 17th tour when they collided in the first corner with both drivers sustaining damage while continuing on only to collect fourth runner Andy Haus.

The restart for Haus saw the pair continue to duel while Tim Smith Jr. took a stab at the lead but Wilson soon began slipping backward and Flinner took control with six laps to go.

After starting 10th, Jason Covert came to second during the final few laps and tracked down the leader only to run out of time to mount a winning bid.

Flinner took the victory by .611 seconds over Covert, Smith Jr., Dylan Yoder and Wilson.

Sixth through 10th went to Mike Lupfer, Jeff Rine, Kenny Moreland, Chad Myers and Roy Deese Jr.

Heats for the 32-car field went to Shaun Jones, Smith Jr., Flinner and Lupfer with Billy Wampler claiming the consolation race.

THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES

LEVAN Machine & Truck Equipment present. . .

"SMOKE ON THE HILL 2" BACK TO GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY;

TONY STEWART & RICO ABREU JOIN ALL STAR SPRINTS IN THUNDER SHOW THURSDAY, AUGUST 23

BECHTELSVILLE, PA (July 24, 2018) - Two of the country's most popular drivers return to 'The Hill' in a special event of epic proportions.

When the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series heads to Grandview Speedway on Thursday, August 23, three-time NASCAR Cup Champion Tony Stewart and two-time Chili Bowl Nationals champion, Rico Abreu, will strap into a 410 sprint car and compete with the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions.

Brought to you by Levan Machine & Truck Equipment, you'll find "Smoke on the Hill 2" and Rico Abreu when the green flag falls for the fourth Annual Thunder Cup -- a 35 lap, $5,000 to win 410 sprint car special event. Also on the program will be the 358 NASCAR Modifieds competing in a series of qualifying events leading up to the 30 lap, $3,000 to win feature event. Jeff Strunk driving the Glenn Hyneman #126 won the previous Thunder modified feature, after stating last in the field of twenty-four starters.

Levan Machine & Truck Equipment located in Fleetwood, PA (just outside of Reading, PA) is part of the Thunder on the Hill family of sponsors. Levan Machine & Truck Equipment is a full-service machine shop and custom truck up-fitting center for Central Pennsylvania. Levan also provides a full line of truck bodies, van interiors, and utility and service bodies. They are the local Boss Snowplow distributor including snowplows and salt spreaders; a Knapheide retailer for truck bodies and lift gates, and a Weatherguard distributor for van and truck interior products. Levan Machine & Truck Equipment also provides repair as an ASE Blue Seal recognized service location. For full details on all of Levan Machine & Truck Equipment products and services log onto www.levanmachine.com

The Levan Machine & Truck Equipment Thunder Cup visit will mark Tony Stewart's third in-action racing appearance at the Grandview Speedway -- located about 50 miles south of NASCAR mainstay, Pocono Raceway. Back on July 3, Stewart rallied home with a solid fourth-place finish at Grandview, following Kyle Larson, Greg Hodnett and Kasey Kahne to the checkered flag.

"As a sprint car fan, Grandview is one of the most exciting tracks to watch a sprint car race. I cannot wait to get my [No.] 14 car unloaded on the Hill. The competition will be nothing short of spectacular. I hope we can have a good night and put ourselves in a position to compete for the win," said Stewart.

Dewease Puts Up Countless Special Event Wins And Titles On His Way To Top Of Williams Grove All-Time Sprints Win List

7/20/18 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Mechanicsburg – When 52-year old Lance Dewease made history at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night by earning his 91st career sprint car win at the track and becoming the winningest driver in the storied history of the Cumberland County oval, he took a position on the list that should stand for many years to come.

His closest pursuer on the list is Greg Hodnett, who currently ranks third with 73 victories.

Hodnett is the only other active driver currently in the top 10 on the all-time win list.

And with both drivers still fully viable in their careers, who knows just how many more wins are still to come.

Dewease could easily continue to increase his win total.

Behind Hodnett as active drivers go on the all-time win list is Brian Montieth, who ranks 16th with 24 wins.

And so Dewease has now set himself atop the win list, still appearing to be in his prime.

The Fayetteville flyer began his trek to the top of the list with his very first Williams Grove Speedway win in a Mitch Smith Memorial on July 10, 1992.

The Smith Memorial win would be his first of five in the prestigious event.

Dewease has accumulated a total of six Williams Grove track titles during his career, coming in 1994 and 1996 for Walter Dyer in the No. 461, in 2001 for Joe Harz in the No. 88H, in 2002 and 2003 for Al Hamilton in the No. 77 and again in 2011 for Don Owens in the No. 30C.

His best year at the track as wins go was 1995 when he put up 10 victories. He had nine in 1994.

Dewease has taken a total of three wins in the oval’s marquee event for sprint cars, the National Open, coming in 1996, 2001 and in 2002. He has also scored twice in the National Open Preliminary.

In total, he counts a total of 12 career World of Outlaws wins at the track and seven triumphs over the All Stars Circuit of Champions Sprints plus a lone victory over the World of Outlaws Division II.

In addition, Dewease has take a total of two URC Sprints checkers at Williams Grove, both of which are accounted for in his now list-topping 91 Williams Grove sprint car wins.

Other momentous Williams Grove victories accounted for in Lance Dewease’s all-time oval win total include two in the season opener, six in the Early Bird Championship turned Tommy Hinnershitz Classic, three in the Jack Gunn Memorial, three in speedweek action, and two in Summer Nationals finale races.

Plus, Dewease has been the Williams Grove Speedway Diamond Series champion once in his career. He holds 18 career Diamond Series wins to date.

So one might now question just what might be next for Dewease at Williams Grove Speedway.

The answer is simple.

Win number 92.

 

 

Dewease Whips Williams Grove Crowd Into Frenzy, Drives Past Schatz To Become Winningest Sprint Car Driver In Track History

7/20/18 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Mechanicsburg – Lance Dewease made Williams Grove Speedway history in the biggest and best way on Friday night by driving by nine-time World of Outlaws champion Donny Schatz in the Summer Nationals to become the winningest sprint car driver of all-time at the historic oval.

Dewease’s win mark now stands at 91 atop the track’s all-time win list.

He took his first victory at the speedway on July 10, 1992.

Dewease started fourth in the 25-lap World of Outlaws feature and drove into third on the opening lap while polesitter Schatz took the lead over Lucas Wolfe.

Only three circuits could be recorded before the first of several caution flags unfurled on the field.

Dewease got by Wolfe for second on the double-file restart and began trying to keep time with Schatz.

However he was only able to keep Schatz from slipping away over the ensuing laps as opposed to catching him and the frontrunners hit lapped traffic with 11 laps completed.

Another caution flag bunched the field and wiped out a near one-second lead held by Schatz and Dewease made an attempt when action resumed in double file style but the start was called back for a turn one tangle.

The ensuing restart was then single file and Dewease made a low side swoop in the first corner when action got restarted only to see Schatz ride the cushion back around and get away onto the backchute.

Just one lap was again completed before another yellow flag again slowed the field and forced a double file restart.

And again Dewease tried to sneak underneath but no dice.

Another one lap in the books and another caution on the 18th circuit bunched the field for what would be the final time and this time, after Dewease had been showing himself to the leader on the inside of the first and second turns previously, Schatz took the lane away.

And while Schatz motored low, Dewease rolled the top in turns one and two and was content to follow Schatz down the backstretch and also through turns three and four, building a full head of steam as the duo headed for the completion of lap 19.

Then with that full head of steam, Dewease broke off of Schatz’s tail as the pair set their cars into the first corner and made a low side swoop that ended with a slide job up to the second turn cushion, just ahead of Schatz’s No. 15.

Schatz had to hit the binders to avoid contact but was glued to Dewease’s tail as the pair raced underneath the backstretch bridge and then Dewease thumped through the third corner across the middle lane and caught the cushion in the fourth corner to drive off with control with five laps to go.

Frontstretch fans stood, waving and cheering for the final two circuits of the momentous event, routing Dewease on to the historic victory, which he took by 1.201 seconds over Schatz.

The win was worth $13,000 for the Fayetteville driver, which included laurels as the Morgan Cup winner.

“It feels great just to be in victory lane, to beat Schatz,” Dewease said.

“One of the reasons I’m at the top (of the win list) is because I raced against the guy that was ahead (Fred Rahmer).”

“And he’s one tough son-of-a-bitch around all these places,” Dewease said about overtaking Rahmer atop the Williams Grove all-time sprint car win list with the outlaws victory at hand.

To chants of Posse!, Posse!, Dewease spoke about passing Schatz.

“He’s one of the best that I ever seen race one of these things,” he said.

And Schatz returned the favor moments later, saying that he must be doing something right if he’s racing with Dewease when he’s at Williams Grove.

“It’s fun to race like that,” Schatz said.

Dewease’s car owner, Don Kreitz Jr., spoke about his driver snagging the momentous win.

“Lance continues to surprise us and amaze us. I just never figured he’d get Schatz,” Kreitz said.

Fast timer on the night, Brian Montieth rode home third followed by Greg Hodnett and Logan Schuchart.

Sixth through 10th went to Wolfe, David Gravel, Brad Sweet, Daryn Pittman and Shane Stewart.

Heats for the 31-car field went to Trey Starks, Dewease and Hodnett with Cory Haas taking the B Main.

Schatz earned the pole for the feature by winning the dash.

Montieth set fast time with a lap of 16.666 seconds.

Feature finish, 25 laps: 1. Lance Dewease, 2. Donny Schatz, 3. Brian Montieth, 4. Greg Hodnett, 5. Logan Schuchart, 6. Lucas Wolfe, 7. David Gravel, 8. Brad Sweet, 9. Daryn Pittman, 10.

Williams Grove Summer Nationals Celebrates 17th Running This Weekend Is An Outlaws Train Comin’ Down The Tracks To Reclaim Braggin’ Rights?

7/15/18

Mechanicsburg – The Champion Racing Oil Summer Nationals at Williams Grove Speedway, coming up this Friday and Saturday, July 20 and 21, will celebrate its 17th running when the gates swing open later this week.

The first edition of the current Summer Nationals was a three-day event back in 2002 with a pair of preliminary mains taken by Danny Lasoski and Joey Saldana while local driver Greg Hodentt upended the World of Outlaws for the big score on Saturday driving for the Apple Motorsports stables.

At the time, the three-day World of Outlaws show at Williams Grove was billed as the first of its kind since only one other previous three-day stand at the track in history, also billed as a Summer Nationals, in August 1984 when Sammy Swindell, Brad Doty and Steve Kinser took wins.

Current World of Outlaws kingpin Donny Schatz took two of three at the track in 2003 with Don Kreitz Jr. taking a preliminary night.

The 2004 version saw Lance Deweae and Lasoski split a pair of mains.

Another three-day format in 2005 saw Jason Johnson score a popular victory for local owners Jim and Sandy Kline while Paul McMahan scored another prelim with track powerhouse Fred Rahmer taking a raucous victory in the Saturday finale.

In 2006 outlaws invaders Terry McCarl, Craig Dollansky and Dary Pittman swept the three-day affair.

Donny Schatz bookended the three-day event with wins in 2007 while local Brian Leppo of Spring Grove was sandwiched in the middle with a win aboard the Swope No. 71 machine.

Becoming a two-day event in 2008, outlaws Donny Schatz and Daryn Pittman swept the shows but the following year belonged to local drivers Greg Hodnett in the Kline No. 22 and Cody Darrah with Darrah taking the win in a make-up feature held during National Open weekend in October.

The 2010 version was all Pennsylvania Posse as Lance Dewease took night one aboard the Don Owens No. 30C and Hodnett returning for another win for the Kline team.

Hodnett struck again in 2011, this time in the Trone Special No. 39, along with outlaw driver Jason Meyers.

Just one show was completed in 2013 with Darrah back for another win, this time aboard an outlaws mount owned by Kasey Kahne.

Again, one show was completed in 2013 with Schatz again a victor but the pendulum swung the other way again in 2014 when locals Hodnett and Dewease swept the two-day weekend show with Hodnett now driving for Michael Heffner and Dewease aboard the Conduit Connections No. 14.

The locals made it back-to-back sweeps of the event in 2015 when Danny Dietrich and Stevie Smith trounced the outlaws.

Pittman was back for a win in 2016 with Dewease, now aboard the Kreitz No. 69K, taking the Saturday finale.

The defending World of Outlaws Summer Nationals winners at Williams Grove Speedway are both locals in the form of Brock Zearfoss and Hodnett.

Zearfoss took the Friday feature last season in the Aaron Long No. 58 while the Saturday main was again completed during National Open weekend in September when Hodnett won again in the Heffner No. 27.

So, as the pendulum swings, could the 2018 version be in line for a trouncing display as put on by the World of Outlaws served up to the Pa Posse?

Time will tell but it would seem that an outlaws train is due to steam into the oval and take back Summer National laurels at Williams Grove Speedway this weekend.

Adult general admission for both shows is $30 with students ages 13-20 admitted for $15.

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

 

 

Champion Racing Oil World Of Outlaws Summer Nationals Hit Williams Grove Speedway
Friday & Saturday Outlaws/Posse Showdown Is First Of Season

7/15/18
Mechanicsburg – The World of Outlaws will invade Williams Grove Speedway for the annual Champion Racing Oil Summer Nationals coming up this Friday and Saturday, July 20 and 21, at 7:30 pm.

The Friday Summer Nationals program will feature the Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint cars in a match-up with the World of Outlaws, when the feature will be 25 laps in distance, paying $8,000 to win plus another $5,000 for Morgan Cup laurels.

Saturday’s racing program will offer the Champion Racing Oil Summer Nationals finale, going 30-laps for a $20,000 top prize.

Adult general admission for both shows is $30 with students ages 13-20 admitted for $15.

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

The World of Outlaws and Pennsylvania Posse clash will be the first of the season at Williams Grove Speedway after an initial visit to the track in May was rained out.

Thus, anticipation is high for the outlaws first apperance in the region this season.

Carrying the World of Outlaws banner into the speedway will be perennial series champion Donny Schatz, who already owns 15 wins on the circuit this season while holding the point lead.

Schatz just won his third consecutive Kings Royal at Eldora Speedway in Ohio.

Other series winners this year that will be in action include Brad Sweet, David Gravel, Daryn Pittman, Sheldon Haudenschild and Brent Marks.

Greg Hodnett is the current Lawrence Chevrolet sprint car series point leader at Williams Grove Speedway, being pursued by Lucas Wolfe.

Both Summer Nationals main events will pay full points toward the 2018 Williams Grove point title.

Lance Dewease and Lucas Wolfe are the only repeat winners this season in sprint car action at the track.

LOCKE EARNS FIRST SPRINT CAR WIN OF SEASON;
BERNHEISEL STRENGTHENS POINTS LEAD WITH FOURTH LATE MODEL VICTORY;
BACHMAN MAKES LATE-RACE PASS FOR PRO STOCK CHECKERS;
ZOOK SCORES ROADRUNNER 20 WIN

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Third generation race car driver Derek Locke of Mechanicsburg scored his first win of the season Saturday night at Selinsgrove Speedway in the 25-lap 360 sprint car main event.

The $2,000 victory was Locke’s second career at the track behind the wheel of the Dellinger’s Auto Body No. 77.

Points leader Bryan Bernheisel of Lebanon recorded his fourth super late model win of the season at the speedway in the division’s 25-lap feature. Bernheisel also collected $2,000 for the victory.

Kyle Bachman of Selinsgrove came away with his third win of the year in the 15-lap pro stock race, while Ryan Zook of Mifflintown took the checkers in the Collier Paving & Construction Roadrunner 20 for his fourth win of the year.

Selinsgrove Speedway will present a four division racing program at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, July 22, featuring the 360 sprint cars, super late models in a Moon Shine Camo Route 35 Challenge Series race, pro stocks, and roadrunners on Veterans Appreciation Night. Track gates will open at 5 p.m.

Third-place starter Derek Locke didn’t waste any time taking command of the field at the start of the sprint car main event. Locke blasted by front row starters Mallie Shuster and Kyle Reinhardt.

At the halfway point, Locke led the way over M. Shuster, Reinhardt, fourth place starter Chad Layton and sixth-place starter Davie Franek. On lap 16, Layton moved into the third spot and started to close in on M. Shuster in a race for second.

With two laps to race, Layton passed M. Shuster for second only to have Franek also get by the third spot. At the finish, Locke was victorious by a half straightaway over Layton, Franek, fifth-place starter Jason Shultz, and M. Shuster.

A three-car tangle in turn one at the start of the late model feature regrouped the field for a restart with polesitter Meade Hahn taking the early lead. Hahn was followed by third-place starter Jim Yoder until Yoder withdrew from the race on lap eight with mechanical issues.

Fifth-place starter Kenny Trevitz inherited the runner up position and set his sights on Hahn. Trevitz led lap nine when eighth-place starter Bryan Bernheisel horsepowered his way around the top of the track and into second.

Bernheisel made the winning pass using the high line around Trevitz in turns three and four on the 10th lap. Late in the race, 10th-place starter Brett Schadel came on strong and powered into the second position but ran out of time.

Bernheisel was victorious over Schadel, Trevitz, Hahn, and Randy Christine.

Second-place starter AJ Hoffman powered into the lead at the start of the pro stock feature. Hoffman was chased by polesitter Cory Long for the first lap until fourth-place starter Tommy Slanker advanced to second. Two laps later, fifth-place starter Kyle Bachman raced into the runner up position.

For the next several laps, Hoffman and Bachman dueled for the lead. On the ninth circuit, Bachman pulled into the lead with an inside pass at the line. He went on to take the checkered flag over Hoffman, sixth-place starter Brad Mitch, Slanker and Brandon Moser.

The early laps of the Roadrunner 20 produced a close five car battle for the lead until attrition took its toll. Front row starter Smith Cope led the first five laps until polesitter Ryan Zook took command of the field. A caution for Keith Bissinger and Bob Bussey put Cope back into the lead for the restart.

Zook secured the lead when the race resumed as fourth-place starter Will Brunson raced second and original sixth-place starter Bussey made a rebound into the third position after rejoining the race on the rear of the field.

The second half of the race went without incident and Zook took the checkered flag over Brunson, Bussey, Kevin Dobson, and Corey Collier.

Logan Wagner Drag Races Hodnett To Win At Port Royal, Claims First For Zemco Coleby Frye wins first late model feature of Port season, Garman and Powell also win

 7/14/18

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Logan Wagner scored his first win anywhere for the Zemco No. 1 racing team at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night by upending Greg Hodnett in thrilling and dramatic fashion for the $3,600 payday after drag racing him down the frontstretch to the finish line on the final lap.

In the 22-lap super late model main, Dover’s Coleby Frye took his first win of the year, holding off a charge by Andy Haus to pick up the win.

The 22-lap econo late model championship race was won by Derick Garman while Bill Powell won his third oval race of they year in the xtreme stock division.

Polesitter Jared Esh zoomed into the lead at the start of the 25-lap 410 sprint car main, circling the high side of the track ahead of Blane Heimbach.

With Heimbach in second, Esh entered lapped traffic on the eighth circuit while Wagner was racing third with Hodnett running fourth.

The first caution flag of the race appeared with 10 laps down when Cale Conley came up with a flat front tire, wiping out Esh’s lead of nearly two seconds.

Hodnett got under Wagner for third on the restart but another yellow bunched the field a lap later.

And on the restart, Wagner returned the favor and reclaimed third from Hodnett while Heimbach took his shots at the leader by throwing his machine deep into the third corner.

Esh was circling the track higher and higher each time and the line finally caught up with him with 11 laps to go when he took a bite into the outside first turn fence, taking himself out of the race.

This gave Heimbach the lead with Wagner and Hodnett following.

Heimbach held sway over the field for the next six laps until Wagner mustered enough speed to bolt by with five laps to go.

And then as Heimbach tried to come back on Wagner, Hodnett also got by for second.

Running the inside line, Hodnett tracked down Wagner with two laps to go and drove underneath for control and that seemed to put Wagner’s elbows up even higher, along with his car’s line on the track and the race was on to the finish.

Refusing to give up, Wagner thrust his No. 1 boldly around the ragged outside lip and just after the white flag, he was able to circle the outside lane and get back into a narrow lead as the pair shot down the backchute.

Hodnett then dove low into the third corner and as soon as he passed Wagner, Wagner abruptly lifted and turned the car dramatically off of the cushion before the pair hit the middle of the turns.

And then as Hodnett slid sideways up across the track to catch the cushion and try to run to the win, Wagner sped along side of him as they raced onto the frontchute through the middle of the fourth corner.

It was anybody’s race during the final few seconds as the pair drag raced down the straightaway with Hodnett outside and Wagner inside and at the line, Wagner nipped Hodnett by a scant .212-second advantage.

Heimbach rode home third followed by 11th starter Dylan Cisney and Mike Wagner.

Sixth through 10th went to Ryan Taylor, Cale Conley, Coleman Gulick, Kody Lehman and Joey Hershey.

Heats went to Conley and Steve Buckwalter.

Coleby Frye started second in the super late model main and ended up wiring the field for the victory that was the 11th of his career at Port Royal, tying him with Dale Kerstetter and Tim Wilson on the all-time win list.

Only one caution flag bunched the field, on the sixth lap, finding Nick Dickson in second and Andy Haus in third.

And while under the caution, Dickson slowed and withdrew from the event.

This put a challenging Haus in second for the restart and the Hamburg driver kept close to Frye for several laps before Frye started slipping away for the win.

Three cars raced for third for the second half of the race with Dylan Yoder, Mike Lupfer and Jeff Rine in the contest.

Yoder and Lupfer exchanged the spot several times before Yoder finally secured it for the finish.

Frye’s margin of victory was 1.727 seconds.

Rine rode home fourth followed by Lupfer, Dan Stone, Tim Wilson, Trent Brenneman, Scott Flickinger and Tim Smith Jr.

Heats went to Frye, Lufper and Ralph Morgan Jr. with Chad Myers taking the consolation event.

Derick Garman ended up wiring the field for the win in the econo late model main.

Eric Irvin gave chase until stopping on the sixth tour.

This placed Andrew Yoder in second however Yoder failed to challenge for the victory.

Tim Krape rode home third followed by Devin Hart and Craig Wagaman.

Heats went to Jeremy Ohl, Hart and Garman.

Bill Powell took the lead from Kevin Imes on lap 12 of the 15-lap xtreme stock main to pick up the win over Imes, Walt Peters, Corey Kepner and Josh Bender.

Matt Findley wins career first in 358 Sprints; Jeremy Ott victorious in Central PA Legends

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 7/14/2018 – Danny Dietrich took no prisoners in the first of two 410 sprint features at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

Dietrich charged from his 11th starting spot in the June 23rd Fallen Firefighters Memorial make-up race to catch and pass Brian Montieth in lapped traffic on the 21st lap and hold on the rest of the way to win his third 410 Sprint feature in-a-row in a non-stop 33-lap time of 8 minutes, 49.443 seconds.

A pair of No.21 cars controlled the top-spot for the first 20-laps of the rescheduled June 23rd Fallen Firefighters Memorial feature. First, polesitter Scott Fisher in the No.21T, grabbed the lead at the drop of the green and desperately tried to hold on to the top spot through the non-stop lapped traffic. Enter the No.21 of six-time track champ Brian Montieth. Montieth came charging to the front from his seventh starting spot to take the lead from Fisher on the 19th lap.

Then all eyes looked behind Montieth.

Dietrich was keeping pace with Montieth as he drove through the lapped traffic and was able to get by Fisher as well on the 19th lap to move into second. And the chase was on.

Dietrich and Montieth began to frantically weave in-and-out of the lapped cars over the next few laps. Dietrich got by Montieth on the 21st lap for the lead and was able keep it the rest of the way to take the checkered for his 5th win of the year at Lincoln.

It took Dietrich just under nine minutes of non-stop racing to pick up his 42nd career Lincoln win and pass Cris Eash to claim sole possession of seventh place on the all-time win list.

Montieth settled for second, with outside front row starter Anthony Macri finishing third, 13th starting Matt Campbell fourth, and Austin Hogue fifth.

Completing the top-10 were Chad Trout, 14th starting Freddie Rahmer, Lucas Wolfe, 15th starting Jim Siegel, and 20th starting Brandon Rahmer.

Of the original 24-starters from the June 23rd event, Greg Hodnett, Brock Zearfoss and Cole Young were not in attendance. They were replaced by alternates for the make-up feature.

ANTHONY MACRI VICTORIOUS IN REGULARLY SCHEDULE 410 SPRINT FEATURE

Anthony Macri backed up his strong third place in the make-up feature earlier in the evening by getting by polesitter and race-long leader Brett Michalski on a 14th lap restart to take the lead on the 14th lap.

The restart leading to the pass for the lead was set up by a wild crash on the 14th lap that saw Australian racer Jessie Attard, Brandon Rahmer, Freddie Rahmer, and Jim Siegel all crash while running 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 7th respectively. This put Macri on race-leader Michalski’s bumper on the restart. Macri wasted no time and got by Michalski for the lead on the 14th lap restart.

The remainder of the 25-lap feature excitement behind the leader as both Montieth and Dietrich were trying desperately to get to the front after failing to qualify in there heat races and were forced to start 22nd and 23rd respectively.

First, Dietrich hit the first and second turn wall and flipped on the 15th lap bringing out the red. Somehow he was able to make repairs and rejoined the field at the rear for the restart.

Then second place Michalski crashed on the subsequent restart, putting Tyler Ross and Chad Trout in second and third place for the restart.

Then the final stoppage of action came on the 16th lap as Dietrich and Montieth got tangled up entering the third and fourth turns, with Dietrich flipping again. This time Dietrich suffered severe damage, as did Montieth, ending both racers night.

The final nine laps saw Ross, Trout, and Lucas Wolfe try to catch the race-leading Macri to no avail.

Macri picked up his second career win after 25 laps with Ross, Trout, Lucas Wolfe, and 16th-starting Adam Wilt finish second through fifth respectively.

Completing the top-10 were 15th-starting Kyle Moody, 20th-starting Gerard McIntyre, Jr., 24th-starting Alan Krimes, 14th-starting Glenndon Forsythe, and 21st-starting Cory Haas.

All told, only 14 cars out of the 24 original starters completed the event.

Heats for the 34 410 Sprints were won by Myers, Brandon Rahmer, Attard, Scott Fisher, with Cory Haas winning the consolation.

MATT FINDLEY SCORES CAREER FIRST 358 SPRINT WIN

Matt Findley started on the pole and led all 20-laps en route to his first career win in the 358 Sprint feature.

Jeff Halligan, Cody Hartlaub, Dave Brown, Cody Fletcher, and Tyler Ross all chased Findley in that order through the entire second half of the race to no avail.

At the end of 20 laps Findley picked up his inaugural win over Halligan, Hartlaub, Brown, and Fletcher.

Completing the top-10 were Ross, Wyatt Hinkle, Tyler Walton, Kyle Denmyer, and Scott Geesey.

Heats for the 26 358 Sprints were won by Geesey, Hartlaub, and Hinkle, with Eric Parker winning the consolation.

Rahmer Wins Wheel Banging Battle With Hodnett In Williams Grove Sprints
Dave Brown Jr. gets first Grove 358 sprint win

7/13/18
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Mechanicsburg – Greg Hodnett and Freddie Rahmer staged a wheel-banging performance in Friday night’s sprint car feature at Williams Grove Speedway with Rahmer coming out on top in the battle.

The win was Rahmer’s first of the year at the track and was worth $4,000 in the outlaw tune-up event.

In other action, Dave Brown Jr. scored his first oval 358 sprint car win in the Mahoney’s Plumbing 358 Sprint Summer Series event, worth $1,500.

Lance Dewease earned the pole for the start of the 25-lap 410 sprint car main with Hodnett lining up to his outside and Dewease blasted into control when the green flag fell.

His run at the front was very short lived however because as the field thundered back to the start/finish line, Dewease’s mount suddenly slowed just shy of the line, handing control over to Hodnett.

Dewease then tagged onto the rear but soon again fell off the pace and withdrew with reports from the pits indicating that his car was jumping out of gear.

Hodnett was chased by Lucas Wolfe for the first lap restart and Wolfe would later give him a run for his money on a lap five restart by pulling right up on his back bumper only to see him jet away as they raced into the third turn.

Rahmer started seventh in the field and was up to third for the lap five restart and just after Wolfe took his shot at the lead, Rahmer drove by him for second and began reeling in Hodnett.

Rahmer took his first shot at control on the 12th tour only to see Hodnett go back in front and then with 9 laps to go the fireworks really got going when Rahmer was able to get to Hodnett’s inside as the pair raced onto the frontchute.

With Rahmer ready to go out front, Hodnett pulled his mount down across the track and the pair banged wheels and bounced back off of one another with Rahmer getting out of the pedal to save his car.

The next time around, the tables were turned and it was Rahmer on the outside as the pair shot onto the backchute with Hodnett dropping off of the cushion to rally back inside.

And this time Rahmer brought his car down across the track with contact turning the nose of Hodnetts car directly left for the flicker of an eye and then he too had to back out of the pedal to save his car.

This allowed Rahmer to get control but the pair was still close with five laps to go when Wolfe and Anthony Macri made contact in the third corner.

With Wolfe in third, Macri shot in on him in an effort to take the spot and the pair ended up spinning, bringing out a yellow flag.

The restart saw Rahmer jet away to the victory by 2.593 seconds over Hodnett, Cory Haas, Danny Dietrich and Brian Montieth.

Sixth through 10th went to Rick Lafferty, Jason Shultz, James McFAdden, Brandon Rahmer and Jimmy Siegel.

Heats went to Hodnett, McFadden and Wolfe with fast time being set by Hodnett with a lap of 17.371 seconds.

Dewease won the dash to put himself on the pole of the feature.

Wyatt Hinkle would lead the first 10 laps of the 25-lap 358 sprint main before fourth starter Dave Brown Jr. took over.

With Hinkle unable to hold his car down in the first and second turns, the door was open for Brown to drive into control.

Brown would lead the rest of the distance despite several restarts including one with four laps to go after a wild frontstretch flip by Kenny Kuhn.

Brown took his first oval 358 sprint win over 11th starter Doug Hammaker, Rodney Westhafer, 12th starter Kevin Nouse and 11th starter Jeff Halligan.

Sixth through 10th went to Todd Rittenhouse Jr., Troy Wagaman, Wyatt Hinkle, Hank Donovan Jr., and Scott Fisher.

Heats went to Nouse, Glenndon Forsythe, Chris Arnold and Hammaker. Brent Shearer won the consolation race.

WOLFE WINS SPECTACULAR SPEEDWEEK FINALE AFTER THRILLING
WHEEL-TO-WHEEL BATTLE WITH DIETRICH AT SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY SUNDAY NIGHT!
HODNETT CLINCHES PA SPEEDWEEK TITLE

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – It was a war on wheels Sunday night at Selinsgrove Speedway to decide the 29th Annual PA Speedweek title for 410 sprint cars.

Danny Dietrich of Gettysburg needed to win the 30-lap Opperman/Bogar Memorial in order to clinch the title but with two laps to race Lucas Wolfe of Mechanicsburg ripped the win and championship away after a thrilling wheel-to-wheel battle most of the race.

The $5,000 win was Wolfe’s fourth career at Selinsgrove and second of the 10-race PA Speedweek series.

Greg Hodnett of Spring Grove scored the PA Speedweek title by only two points over Dietrich.

Freddie Rahmer of Salfordville was the night’s Fast Tees fast qualifier with a lap time of 16.509.

Johnny Scarborough of Bomoseen, Vermont, won the 20-lap PASS 305 sprint car feature.

Selinsgrove Speedway is back in action at 7:30 p.m. this Saturday, July 14, with fan appreciation night featuring the 360 sprint cars, super late models, pro stocks, and roadrunners. Adult general admission for the four division show will be only $10 on July 14 with all general admission students ages 17 and under admitted FREE! Track gates will open at 5 p.m.

Outside front row starter Danny Dietrich pulled ahead of polesitter Freddie Rahmer exiting turn two at the start of the 410 sprint car main event. By lap six, Dietrich began to encounter slower traffic, allowing Rahmer and fourth-place starter Lucas Wolfe to close in.

On the 14th circuit, Wolfe passed Rahmer for the runner up position and set his sites on Dietrich. The race’s only caution flag unfurled on lap 15, at the halfway point, when Trey Stark’s lost the handle in turns three and four. Starks was able to rejoin the race.

When the green flag waved again, a war on wheels unfolded the entire second half of the race between Dietrich and Wolfe. Wolfe tried repeatedly using the inside line to get by Dietrich as the duo race side by side and had the fans on their feet.

With eight laps remaining, third-place starter Blane Heimbach showed a lot of speed and reeled in the leaders to make it a three-car battle at the front of the pack. On lap 28, Wolfe made the winning pass using the inside lane off turn two. Dietrich continued to race in his shadow and made a last-ditch effort to take the lead back.

At the checkered flag, Wolfe was victorious by a mere .86 of a second over Dietrich. Heimbach finished a a close third, followed by Rahmer and 13th-place starter Jason Shultz.

Polesitter Kyle Smith took the early lead in the 305 sprint car feature. Second-place starter Johnny Scarborough chased the leader for the first eight laps until making the winning pass using the inside line off turn four on lap nine.

A caution flag on lap 12 regrouped the field with Scarborough setting the pace on the restart. Fourth-place starter Ken Duke advanced to second on the restart and set his sights on the leader. A second and final caution flag on lap 18 put Duke right on Scarborough’s rear bumper for a restart.

At the finish, Scarborough took the checkered flag by five car lengths over Duke, Cale Reigle, Austin Bishop, and Nick Sweigart.

PRS 2018 – 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

Dietrich Win Port Royal Sprint Speedweek Thriller

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 7/7/18

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Danny Dietrich won a thrilling Pennsylvania Speedweek feature at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night, becoming the third and final leader in the 30-lap non-stop affair that saw the top five cars racing within a straightaway of one another for the second half of the rousing event.

In the 25-lap Moon Shine Camo Rt. 35 Dirt Late Model Challenge Series event, Ralph Morgan Jr. of Hill Valley scored the victory worth $2,200 and was also the third and final leader of a crowd-pleasing event.

Polesitter Brock Zearfoss blasted into control at the start of the speedweek feature with Anthony Macri and Greg Hodnett giving chase.

Macri struggled to keep pace with Zearfoss as the race entered traffic on the seventh tour and by lap 13, Hodnett was challenging Macri for the runnerup spot with Dietrich breathing down both of their necks and Lance Dewease lurking in fifth.

As traffic grew increasingly heavy, it became more challenging for Zearfoss and the front-runners to negotiate and the field bunched up while exchanging positions two through six with Ryan Smith now in the mix as well.

With 12 laps to go, Macri was still in second ahead of Dietrich, who had taken third from Hodnett a lap earlier, but the margin between the pair was the blink of an eye or .011 seconds.

Dietrich took second with 11 laps to go and began running down leader Zearfoss but by that time Dewease was biting into the front-runner’s advantages while also battling Hodnett for third.

Dewease finally got third while chugging around the inside and then while Dietrich battled Zearfoss for control in nose-to-tail fashion, Dewease used his favored low line to pass both drivers on the 25th lap.

But the race that most may have thought was then over after Dewease took the lead, then turned even more thrilling as the move by Dewease seemed to put Dietrich’s elbows up even higher as he flung his No. 48 higher and higher around the speedway.

Dewease was never able to open up any advantage over Zearfoss or Dietrich and finding remarkable bite against the outside fence in the second corner, Dietrich was able to burst back around Zearfoss and then Dewease and take control on the 28th tour.

The Gettysburg driver then went on to record his third win of the current series by 1.880 seconds while Zearfoss stung Dewease for second on the final tour.

Dewease rode home third followed by Hodnett and Smith.

Sixth through 10th went to Freddie Rahmer, Macri, Rico Abreu, Ryan Taylor and Lucas Wolfe.

“I was finally able to beat the 69K’s ass,” exclaimed Dietrich to a raucous crowd after he drove back by Dewease to get the victory.

Heats for the 31-cars went to Dietrich, Dewease, Taylor and Macri with the consolation going to Jared Esh.

Wolfe set quick time in time trials with a lap of 16.814 seconds.

Hodnett leads speedweek points heading into the final race of the 10-event series at Selinsgrove Speedway on Sunday, July 8.

Tim Wilson used the pole to take the lead in the 25-lap Moon Shine Camo Rt. 35 Dirt Late Model Challenge Series race over Morgan, who took second on the second tour.

Morgan soon gave way to Marvin Winters on the sixth tour however and then Winters began running down Wilson’s advantage.

Winters was challenging Wilson for the lead on the 11th lap when the caution flag appeared for a stopped Jason Schmidt.

The ensuing restart saw Wilson trip up over the cushion in the first corner and take himself out of contention, remanding control to Winters with Morgan second followed by Jeff Rine and Kyle Lee.

Lee and Rine staged a great battle for third for several laps before Rine finally began getting away with the spot.

Morgan then began challenging Winters for control and took the lead with 10 laps to go only to see Winters rally and reclaim the spot with six laps left.

Rine was then in the mix and working traffic as he pressured the leaders when he made contact with a slow car with five laps to go in the third turn while working to its inside.

The contact found Rine nearly flipping over as his car lifted up and came close to tipping over on the driver’s side.

That incident sent the lapped car up across the track with Kyle Lee than slamming into it and the outside wall.

While Winters restarted with the lead, he again found a challenge from Morgan who worked by for control by the time lap 21 could be scored.

And this time after getting the lead, Morgan held it to the finish.

Winters was second followed by 21st starter Andy Haus, Chad Myers and Matt Parks.

Sixth through 10th went to Dave Brouse Jr., Mike Lupfer, Roy Deese Jr., Colton Flinner and Nick Dickson.

Heats went to Winters, Lee and Rine with Haus taking the last chance race.

Drivers canvassed the crowd during the two-division event and collected over 5,000 to benefit injured sprint car driver TJ Stutts.

K1 RaceGear 358 Sprint Summer Series

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Sat., July 28, 2018 - 7:30 PM - PEPSI NIGHT/ARCH NIGHT - 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints, and Mid-Atlantic Modifieds

TROY WAGAMAN, JR. AND CJ TRACY EACH SCORE 2ND CAREER LINCOLN SPEEDWAY 358 SPRINT WINS;

Jason Geeseman Victorious in Street Stocks; Richie Hitzler Xcel Modified Winner;

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 7/7/2018 – Troy Wagaman, Jr. took advantage of a penalty to race-leader Chase Dietz with five laps to go to inherit the lead and then held off Dietz the remaining laps to pick up the win in the special 25-lap $1,500-to-win K1 RaceGear 358 Sprint Summer Series feature at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night. The win, Wagaman’s second career Lincoln win, win was over a year in the making since his inaugural win back on August 13th, 2016.

CJ Tracy then capped off his fourth-place run in the first feature of the night by leading every lap at the end of the night in the June 23rd make-up Fallen Firefighters Night in Memory of Brandon Little feature. Like Wagaman, Tracy’s win was the second of his career, backing up his first career win from May 28th, 2016.

1ST FEATURE - K1 RaceGear 358 Sprint Summer Series Feature

Wagaman, who has been searching for his second career 358 sprint win for over a year, started on the pole of the featured event of the night yet watched outside front row starter CJ Tracy grab the lead with fifth-starting Chase Dietz getting by for second at the outset of the 25-lap feature.

Dietz drove around Tracy on the fourth lap to take over the top spot with Wagaman still trailing in third place.

Wagaman got by Tracy on the 11th lap to take over the runner-up spot as race-leading Dietz continued to set the pace through lapped traffic during the hectic non-stop action.

Brett Shearer slowed the action on the 20th lap with the event’s only caution by spinning in the third and fourth turns.

It was at that point officials penalized race-leading Dietz two positions for jumping on the original start of the feature. This put

Dietz in third, handing the lead over to Wagaman and second place to Tracy.

Wagaman took full advantage of Dietz’s misfortune by leading the final five laps to pick up his second career 358 sprint win and take home the K1 RaceGear 358 Sprint Summer Series Feature $1,500 winner’s check.

Dietz tried in vain to get the lead back the final laps. Dietz got by Tracy on that final restart to move into second, but came up 1.03-seconds short of race-winner Wagaman at the checkered.

Tyler Ross culminated a good run from his 12th starting spot to finish third, Tracy fourth, and 11th-starting Doug Hammaker fifth.

Completing the top-10 were Hard Charger Award winner Chris Arnold who drove from his 22nd starting position to finish sixth, 15th-starting Jeff Halligan seventh, Kyle Denmyer eighth, Cody Hartlaub ninth, and Todd Rittenhouse, Jr. 10th.

Heats for the 37 358 Sprints on hand were won by Hank Donovan, Jr., Matt Findley, Denmyer, and Shearer, with Rodney Westhafer winning the consolation.

JUNE 23RD FALLEN FIREFIGHTERS NIGHT IN MEMORY OF BRANDON LITTLE MAKE-UP FEATURE

Tracy started on the pole of the June 23rd make-up Fallen Firefighters Night feature and led every lap to pick up the win in the 20-lap 358 Sprint feature in Memory of Brandon Little.

Outside front row starter Dalton Dietrich trailed Tracy the entire distance and settled for second, with third-starting Matt Findley doing the same by running third throughout and finished third. Fifth-starting Tyler Ross advanced one spot to finish fourth, with fourth-starting Ashley Cappetta losing that spot to Ross and settled for fifth.

Completing the top-10 were Trey Hivner, Scott Geesey, Hard Charger Cody Hartlaub (who originally was scheduled to start 24th), Dave Brown, and 14th-starting Tyler Walton.

GEESEMAN WIRES THE FIELD TO WIN STREET STOCK FEATURE

Second-starting Jason Geeseman grabbed the lead from polesitter Aaron Beard at the outset of the 20-lap Street Stock feature and led the entire way, holding off a fast-closing by a mere .60-seconds for the win.

Third-starting Cory Sites raced in the top-three the entire distance and settled for third, with Will Walls fourth, and 11th-starting Randy Zechman fifth.

Completing the top-10 were Chris Derr, Chad Smith, Wayne Dutterer, Sam Gallagher, and Kyle Sizemore.

Heats for the 24 Street Stocks on hand were won by Beard, Geeseman, and Sites.

HITZLER ENDURES TO WIN XCEL MODIFIED FEATURE

Richie Hitzler got by polesitter and race-long leader Michael Borrows just past the halfway mark of the 20-lap 600 Xcel Modified feature and held off eighth-starting Korey Inglin for the victory.

Burrows settled for third, with Matt Warner and Brian Blankenbillar finishing fourth and fifth respectively.

Completing the top-10 were DJ Hunt, Jarrett Sechrist, Travis Fichter, Hunter Diehl, and Robert Martin.

Heats for the 19 Xcel Modifieds on hand were won by Hitzler and Borrows.

Next Saturday night, July 14th, it will be JOHN GLEIM JR. EXCAVATING NIGHT featuring the 410 Sprinters in a regularly scheduled feature and a make-up feature from the rain-postponed June 23rd Fallen Firefighters Night event.

FROM WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY

JULY 6, 2018

LANCE DEWEASE WINS $12,000 IN 30th ANNUAL MITCH SMITH MEMORIAL AT WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY FRIDAY NIGHT IN ROUND EIGHT OF PENNSYLVANIA SPRINT CAR SPEEDWEEK

MECHANICSBURG, PA – Even with a top wing problem over the final two laps, Lance Dewease couldn’t be beat in the Mitch Smith Memorial Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway.

Dewease’s third Grove win of the season was the 90th of his career and tied him with Fred Rahmer for most wins all-time at the track. His victory was worth $12,000 in a car owned by Donnie Kreitz.

The left side board of Dewease’s wing began to pull away from the center section creating vision and handling problems, but he held on to his second straight Speedweek win and 26th of his career.

“It was a handful,” Dewease said. “I knew I had to run down around the bottom. I was going to use up whoever got along side of me. I was shocked it took that long for somebody to get along side of me. I wasn’t going to wreck them, but they were going to have to figure out a way by me. I couldn’t see out the right side at all. I was just listening for somebody and I knew I had to move up some and take the lane away from them and use up as much track as I could. Drive 100 miles per hour with three flat tires. That’s what it drove like. You’re just manhandling it. Using the brake, using the throttle.”

Two of Williams Grove’s best, Greg Hodnett and Dewease, shared the front row to start the 30-lap main event. It was Hodnett getting the best of Dewease blasting off the turn two cushion while Dewease was on the bottom.

The yellow flag flew with five laps completed.

Hodnett controlled the restart. Rico Abreu and defending track champion Freddie Rahmer raced hard for third. Rahmer took it in turn four, but Abreu returned the pass in turn two.

Hodnett was up by 1.141 with 10 laps completed.

The leaders reached a pack of slower cars on lap 13. Hodnett had to slow entering turn three and that’s all Dewease needed to drive by and into the lead as they raced off turn four.

Dewease was slicing through traffic now with 12 laps to go as Rahmer and Abreu continued their battle for third.

Rahmer eventually secured the spot and closed on Hodnett and slid in front of him off four taking second with six laps to go.

The yellow flew with five laps to go for Jared Esh in turn four. This erased Dewease’s two second lead.

Dewease controlled the restart and had the race under control until he was coming down for two to go when the top wing began shifting creating major handling issues.

Hodnett passed Rahmer on the restart and was all over Dewease for the lead, but Dewease made his car as wide as possible. Danny Dietrich drove by Rahmer for third. The top three were nose-to-tail, and sideways, as they raced off turn two on the final lap.

Dewease led them down the back stretch and through turns three and four. Dietrich went all the way to the bottom of turn four trying to get by, but Dewease beat them both back to the line winning by 0.140 over Hodnett and Dietrich.

“I saw Lance’s wing and he was having a hard time getting down the straight aways,” Hodnett said. “I know how that feels. It’s very difficult to keep a straight line. I got a couple runs on him, but if I would have pushed the issue, I would have probably crashed us both.”

“Nowhere to go,” Dietrich said. “I don’t know how Lance drove it like that. I tried everything I could do to get around Greg. I knew Lance would be coming up the race track to block. We came from eighth to third. I wish we could have started up front. We had a fast racecar.”

Rahmer and Abreu completed the top five. Lucas Wolfe, Anthony Macri, Tony Stewart, Trey Starks and Chad Trout rounded out the top 10.

Hodnett set fast time over the 35-car field with a lap 17.040. Rahmer, Dietrich, Trout and Starks won the heat races. Gerard McIntyre Jr. won the B-main.

Hodnett leads the Speedweek points by 64 over Rahmer, 65 over Wolfe, and 66 over Dietrich. Starks is fifth and 116 back of Hodnett.

In the 20-lap Mason Dixon Shootout Series event for the 358 late models, Shaun Jones started on the pole and drove into the lead. Justin Weaver raced from fifth to second.

Jones would go unchallenged to the win over Weaver and ninth starting Brad McGinnis. James Lichliter and Alan Sagi completed the top five. Dillan Stake, Craig Wagaman, Bryan Bernheisel, Randy Christine Jr. and Cam Ziegler rounded out the top 10.

Bernheisel, Jones and Stake won the heat races.

Dewease Wins Johnny Grum Memorial at Hagerstown

By Brett Rose

HAGERSTOWN, MD – For the third consecutive year, Lance Dewease drove the Davey Brown prepared, Don Kreitz, Jr. owned No.69k to victory lane at Hagerstown Speedway winning $5,000 in the 30 lap Johnny Grum Memorial in Round 7 of Pennsylvania Sprint Speedweek.

Dewease began the feature event from sixth on the grid and quickly moved into the top five by the fourth circuit and was running in fourth place when a caution flag waved for the spun car of Australian racer Jesse Attard on lap seven.

Pole starter Greg Hodnett led the way from the start and was followed by fellow front row starter Ryan Smith, with Freddie Rahmer in tow ahead of Dewease on the restart.

It took two laps for Dewease to move past Rahmer and Smith into the runner-up spot, albeit about a half-straightaway behind Hodnett. Hodnett held that advantage approximately three seconds ahead of Dewease at the halfway point of the contest.

Hodnett searched his way all over the track in the Mike Heffner No.27 through lapped traffic to keep Dewease at bay, but Dewease persevered along the bottom searching for a line that would allow him to reel in Hodnett’s lead.

As the laps wound down toward the end, Dewease pulled to within a couple car lengths of Hodnett. Dewease caught Hodnett with four laps to go, and then made the pass for the lead down low in turn three with three laps remaining.

Once out front, Dewease slightly pulled away to a .522 second advantage over a valiant effort by Hodnett to regain the top spot, but it wasn’t enough as Dewease drove to his 16th career win at the Hub City oval where he picked up his first career win 32 years ago in 1986.

“I was running as hard as I could, making sure I hit my marks. Greg (Hodnett) I think was a little better than us tonight, especially early in the feature. I just kept driving hard and found a line that I could get by those lapped cars. He got by those lapped cars earlier better than I could and I finally found a line in turn one and two to get by them a lot easier. I got at him and he stayed out there a little bit in three and I was going by him one way or the other. I didn’t know if I could hold him off or not and I just wanted to make sure I didn’t lose my pace after that.” said Dewease in victory lane.

Hodnett finished second, followed by Smith, Rahmer and Anthony Macri in the top five.

Spencer Bayston had quick time in time trials with a lap of 17.008 seconds, while Hodnett, Macri, and Dewease were heat race winners. Rico Abreu won the B-main.

Notes: 29 cars were pitside for the only 410 Sprint Car race of the season that included former NASCAR champion Tony Stewart in competition for his first ever start at Hagerstown, while former NASCAR driver and World of Outlaws champion Dave Blaney was also racing. Stewart finished 11th, while Blaney finished 17th.

Dewease’s win moves him into a three way tie for sixth on the all-time Sprint Car win list with Ray Dovel and Bobby Abel whom each won at Hagerstown for their 16th career wins in 1969.

It also marks the 16th career win at Hagerstown for Kreitz as a car owner including his 13 wins as a driver.

Lucas Wolfe Gets By Dietrich For Port Royal Speedway July 4 Speedweek Win Buckwalter drives by Michael and Layton for URC victory

 7/4/18

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Lucas Wolfe out-maneuvered Danny Dietrich to score a popular victory in Wednesday’s Pennsylvania Speedweek event at Port Royal Speedway, worth $7,000.

In the URC Sprint main, after a thrilling battle for the lead between Chad Layton, Curt Michael and Steve Buckwalter, Buckwalter came out on top for the $2,000 checkers.

Danny Dietrich drew the pole for the start of the 30-lap speedweek main for the 410 sprint cars with Greg Hodnett drawing the outside of the front row.

Dietrich got ahead of Hodnett when action began and was still in front on the sixth lap when a third turn flip by Gerard McIntyre Jr. brought out the red flag.

Dietrich continued to lead on the restart with Hodnett and Wolfe in tow and for a while the pair battled for second before Hodnett began tracking down the leader as the race reached the halfway point.

Hodnett darted to Dietrich’s outside as the pair exited the fourth turn to complete lap 16 and then appeared headed to the win while Wolfe began battling Dietrich for second.

But then suddenly Hodnett slowed with a flattened front wing with 11 laps to go, handing the point back over to Dietrich with Wolfe and now Trey Starks in a challenging position as well.

The new life for Dietrich lasted only two circuits before Wolfe, whose car was working flawlessly on both sides of the speedway, also drove by Dietrich in the fourth turn to take control with nine laps to go.

Once in control, Wolfe began blasting away from the field, turning the fastest laps of the race with two laps to go.

It was the defending speedweek champions first series win of 2018 and his second overall of the year at Port Royal Speedway while giving him a total of nine on the oval’s all time win list.

Wolfe stretched out his margin by the finish to take the win by 4.493 seconds over Dietrich with Trey Starks finishing third.

Fourth went to sixth starter Spencer Bayston of Indiana, who prior to the night had never set eyes on the historic oval.

Tony Stewart rode home fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Blane Heimbach, Lance Dewease, James McFadden, Freddie Rahmer and Jared Esh.

Heats went to Bayston, Wolfe, Dietrich and Stewart with the consolation going to Jared Esh.

Fast time was set by Hodnett with a lap of 15.352 seconds.

A 90-minute rain shower delayed the start of the program by approximately one hour while also producing lightning-quick speeds on the half-mile.

Chad Layton drew the pole for the start of the 25-lap URC Sprints main and took the lead at the start over Curt Michael.

Michael beat up on Layton repeatedly during the early going, taking the lead more than once only to see Layton dart back to his inside in the third turn and reclaim control.

A caution period on the fifth tour bunched the field and Michael again got the upper hand on Layton but Layton rallied back to reclaim control with eight away, again by executing massive dives low in to the third turn to come up across the track and make the pass.

And while all the racing for the lead was taking place, sixth starter Steve Buckwalter was making tracks to the front while blasting the outside lane and on the ninth tour he completed a two-car pass of both Michael and Layton to net command.

Layton again battled back to reclaim control on several occasions by Buckwalter’s high line momentum was always enough to allow him to ride back into the top sot.

Layton got another clear shot on a lap 17 restart with Buckwalter again using his momentum to get out in front, where he stayed for the win.

Layton finished second followed by Eddie Strada, Michael and Josh Weller.

Sixth through 10th went to Jason Shultz, Kyle Reinhardt, Eric Parker, Derek Locke and Kevin Nagy.

Heats went to Michael and Layton.

The race then entered traffic on the 12th tour

SMITH, BERNHEISEL & LAWTON SCORE TUESDAY NIGHT FIRECRACKER VICTORIES

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Mark Smith of Sunbury turned in a flag-to-flag victory in Tuesday night’s
Firecracker 30 for 360 sprint cars at Selinsgrove Speedway in front of a large crowd that was on hand for the special holiday racing program sponsored by Selinsgrove Ford.

The $3,000 win was Smith’s second of the season at Selinsgrove behind the wheel of the Mach 1 Chassis No. M1.

Bryan Bernheisel of Lebanon inherited the lead in the 30-lap super late model race and held off a late-race challenge for his third win of the year at the track also worth $3,000 over a stellar field of 30 entries.

Shaun Lawton of Bloomsburg drove to an exciting win in the 15-lap C.W. Smith Memorial pro stock race. Lawton collected $1,028 for his third win of the season.

Selinsgrove Speedway will present the Jan Opperman/Dick Bogar Memorial PA Speedweek Finale for 410 sprint cars plus PASS 305 sprint cars at 7:30 p.m. this Sunday, July 8. The 30-lap main event will pay $5,000 to win. Track gates will open at 5 p.m.

Blane Heimbach was scheduled to start on the pole for the 360 main event but a mechanical issue forced him to rejoin the field at the back of the pack after entering the pit area. The move shifted original third-place starter Mark Smith to the pole for the drop of the green flag.

Smith powered into the front spot and was chased by second-place starter Jason Shultz. By lap two a battle for third developed between fourth-place starter Davie Franek and fifth-place starter Chad Layton. Meanwhile, Heimbach began to work his way back through the field.

With only five laps completed, Smith began to encounter slower traffic with Shultz, Franek, Layton and sixth-place starter Kyle Reinhardt in pursuit.

The race’s second caution flag unfurled on lap 11 when Mallie Shuster’s car spun in turns three and four. On the lap 12 restart, ninth-place starter Derek Locke drove into the top five. The raced was slowed one more time when Reinhardt’s car rolled to a stop in turn two.

On the ensuing restart, Smith stretched his lead only to have Shultz attempt to close it up in the final five laps to no avail. Smith was victorious by 1.94 seconds over Shultz, Franek, Layton, and Locke.

In the late model feature, Jeff Rine started on the outside of the front row and beat polesitter Bryan Bernheisel out of the second turn to take the early lead. Fourth-place starter Dylan Yoder kept the leaders in his sites as they navigated their way through traffic by lap five.

The race’s first caution flag waved on lap 13 when Billy Wampler’s car developed a flat tire.
When the race resumed, Rine held a solid lead while Bernheisel and Yoder dueled for the runner up position.

On the 20th circuit, Colebry Frye, last Saturday’s feature winner, rolled to a stop in turn one after racing his way into the fourth position. On the lap 21 restart, 10th place starter Brett Schadel and 11th place starter Gene Knaub challenged for the fifth position.

Misfortune struck Rine on lap 24 when his car developed a flat tire. Bernheisel inherited the lead and fended off Yoder to the finish, posting a narrow .69 of a second margin of victory. Knaub, Schadel, and sixth-place starter Shaun Jones completed the top five.

Third-place starter Shaun Lawton powered into the lead at the start of the pro stock main event but had second-place starter Kyle Bachman racing in his shadow. On the third lap fourth-place starter AJ Hoffman took over the runner up position.

At the halfway point, Lawton was the leader by the slimmest of margins over Hoffman, fifth-place starter Brad Mitch, polesitter Brandon Moser and seventh-place starter Tommy Slanker.

A caution on lap 13 for Jake Buck’s disabled race car regrouped the field for a war on wheels to the finish. Lawton came out on top by just .67 of a second over Hoffman, Mitch, Bachman, and Moser.

THUNDER ON THE HILL RACE RESULTS

HOT SUMMER NIGHT LANDS KYLE LARSON IN GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY VICTORY LANE, POCKETS $7,000

JEFF STRUNK STUNS THE FIELD WINNING MODIFIED MAIN FROM 23RD PLACE STARTING SPOT

BECHTELSVILLE, PA (July 3, 2018) – It was an Independence Day celebration of speed as a capacity crowd witnessed the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series action at the Grandview Speedway will star filled field of local and national driving stars. NASCAR Cup Series driver Kyle Larson invaded to claim the Pennsylvania 410 Sprint Car Speedweek victory – round five of the 10-race stretch, while Jeff Strunk picked up the win in the NASCAR 358 Modified main event. The event was presented by Pioneer Pole Buildings as Larson collected $7,000 for his win and Strunk earned an attractive $3,000 first place prize in the modified feature.

“Such an awesome crowd tonight,” Larson said in Victory Lane celebrations. “It seemed like a pretty exciting race, at least from my seat, every time I went to the top I’d see Greg Hodnett pull to my inside.”

A blind re-draw put James McFadden and Greg Hodnett on the front row of the 35 lap main event. Hodnett – a 9-time Thunder on the Hill winner – quickly jumped to the lead. Larson, who started in the fourth position, moved into contention on the third circuit.

With a 24-car starting field on the one-third-mile, lapped traffic became a factor on the sixth lap, with Larson taking the low-groove and Hodnett taking the high-side to split a lapped car. Larson powered around the bottom claiming the top spot.

The race’s first caution flew on lap 9, while circling the track under yellow James McFadden – running in the third position – pulled pitside to change a right rear flat tire.

Larson took command on the restart with Hodnett giving chase, the two diced high-and-low ticking off laps one-by-one, with Larson riding right up against the outside wall.

“It was such a fine line running right up that high, there’s such a risk of getting into the wall. I was a little nervous,” Larson offered.

With Larson running an extreme outside groove, Hodnett peeked to the inside of Larson’s No. 57 machine – before the two swapped lanes with Larson moving to the bottom and Hodnett on the top.

Then came Christopher Bell.

The 23-year-old Sprint Car ace turned NASCAR driver, used momentum and lapped traffic to close on the leaders forming a three-car fight for the win – but ultimately Bell’s night would end drastically bunching up the field with a right rear flat and collecting Trey Starks.

Larson outgunned Hodnett on the Lap 32 restart leading the final three circuits and collecting a $7,000 payday and his second consecutive NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Series Speedweek victory.

Hodnett would finish in second position, followed by a pair of NASCAR Cup Series superstars Kasey Kahne and Tony Stewart in third and fourth respectively. Danny Dietrich finished in fifth moving from a 12th place starting position.

From a 23rd starting position, Jeff Strunk led the Glenn Hyneman-owned No. 126 to a $3,000 NASCAR 358 Modified payday.

Ryan Watt jumped to the early lead from his front row starting position followed closely by Jared Umbenhaue.. A lap 3 yellow flag slowed the field for the first time.

On the restart, Watt continued on in the top spot with Umbenhauer in second and Craig VonDohren moving into the third position.

The top-three competitors battled side-by-side for the lead, with Umbenhauer slipping past Watt on multiple occasions but unable to hold the top spot.

Lap-by-lap Watt maintained a command on the field with Umbenhauer and VonDohren forming a three car chase for the checkered.

A lap 21 restart offered Strunk an opportunity to pounce, first on VonDohren and then on Umbenhauer one lap later.

Strunk raced outside Watt’s No. 14W on the 23rd lap and finally completed the pass after multiple attempts. Strunk would go on to claim his 13th NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series win and his first since 2015.

DANNY DIETRICH BEATS KYLE LARSON FOR SECOND PENNSYLVANIA SPEEDWEEK WIN;

Steve Wilbur beats Billy Brian, Jr. for win in Wingless Super Sportsman Action

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 7/2/2018 – Danny Dietrich did it again.

Dietrich came from his 5th starting spot to race-down pole-sitter and race-long NASCAR racer Kyle Larson with 10 laps to go, took the lead, and won his 2nd 2018 Pennsylvania Sprint Speedweek show at Lincoln Speedway Monday night.

Larson, fresh off his wild 2nd place NASCAR run the day before at Chicagoland Speedway, started on the pole for the 30-lap feature after setting second-quick time in time trials and finished second in his heat. Larson took the lead at the drop of the green over outside frontrow starter Lucas Wolfe.

Larson maintained a two-second lead as he headed into lapped traffic on the eighth lap as Rico Abreu, who started fourth, got around Wolfe for the runner-up spot.

But Dietrich was on the move from his fifth-starting spot and got third place from Wolfe on lap 11 and then second place on lap 14 as they continued the non-stop hectic pace through lapped traffic.

Dietrich cut the lead to under one second by the 18th lap and closed on Larson’s Bumper as they completed the 19th lap.

Dietrich made his move on the 20th lap by slipping under Larson in the third and fourth turns and led the 20-lap.

Speedweek Series point leader suddenly stopped in turn two with frontend damage before Dietrich and Larson could complete the 21st lap.

Dietrich now led Larson, Abreu, Wolfe, and Ryan Smith for the restart with nine laps to go.

Then it was a battle of styles the rest of the way as Dietrich hugged the inside guardrail while Larson flirted with the outside guardrail.

Suddenly the action stopped with five laps to go as defend Lincoln Speedway Champion Brian Montieth, who was running close to the top-five most of the race, hit the wall in turns one and two and flipped to bring out the red flag on the 26th lap. Montieth was okay.

So now it was a five lap shootout. And the leaders continued where they left off with Larson high, and Dietrich low.

Dietrich held on the rest of the way to take the checkered 1.25-seconds ahead of Larson for his fourth Lincoln win of 2018, and the 42nd of his career to put him into a tie for seventh-place all time with Cris Eash.

Abreu held off Wolfe in a torrid battle for third place. Ryan Smith rounded out the top-five.

Completing the top-10 were Chad Trout, Gerard McIntyre, Jr., Cory Haas, Greg Hodnett, and Kasey Kahne.

Sprint heats were won by Dietrich, Abreu, Kahne, and Smith, with Jim Siegel winning the consolation.

Fast time in time trials for the 38-car 410 Sprint field was set by Chad Trout with a one-lap time of 13.922-seconds (96.969 MPH).

Steve Wilbur passed polesitter and race-long leader Billy Brian, Jr. on the 16 and raced away to the win in the 20-lap wingless super sportsman feature. Steve Drevicki finished third, Joey Biasi fourth, and Carmen Perigo fifth.

Heats for the 23 Wingless Super Sportsman on hand were won by Drevicki, Craig Perigo, and Biasi.

Lincoln Speedway back into action Saturday night, July 7th, with a special 358 Sprint event – the “K1 RaceGear 358 Sprint Summer Series” and the 6/23 Feature Make-up.

Cole Duncan Victorious at Path Valley Speedway

By TODD HEINTZELMAN

July 2, 2018 - SPRING RUN, Pa. – Fred Rahmer Promotions brought to you by Leffler Energy and Pioneer Pole Buildings put up $10,000 to win the Pennsylvania Sprint Car Speedweek race Sunday night at Path Valley Speedway and if not for Ohio’s Cole Duncan, it would have stayed in the Rahmer family.

But, Duncan used the middle groove, that Freddie Rahmer used to take the lead earlier in the 50-lap event, to drive back by him on a late-race restart.

Duncan, of Lockbourne, Ohio, controlled the final six laps scoring his second career Path Valley win and second $10,000 win in his last three races (Ohio Speedweek finale at Atomic).

“I don’t think I had anything if that last restart doesn’t happen,” Duncan said. “I knew we were running out of time. Everything fell our way late, but early I felt like I couldn’t make the right move in traffic and got shuffled back a little bit. Freddie kind of showed me the way around there. We were all bunched up around the bottom and he got to rolling right through the middle. I was a little surprised on that restart that he ducked back down to the bottom. He gave me a lane there and I made it stick. I had one opportunity. I knew if I showed my nose and didn’t make it stick, he was going to move up and block.”

Rahmer was disappointed, but satisfied, also, that he had a good run. He earned $3,500.

“The lapped car got me back on the bottom and I figured it was time to get back to the bottom,” Rahmer said. “If I would have run through the center down here, I don’t think he would have got me because once I moved up, I maintained. If I wasn’t going to win, I’m glad Cole did.”

The race was promoted by 13-time Speedweek champion Fred Rahmer, so the money almost stayed in the Rahmer family.

“That’s their deal and they do a great job on that,” said big Fred Rahmer. “We got beat by a better car. Freddie did a hell of a job for the amount of experience he has in those situations. I was really happy. He’ll be okay.”

Mike Wagner led the field down to start the 50-lap main event and controlled the opening laps which included two yellow flags.

Duncan was up to second and challenging Wagner for the lead by lap 12 as they raced in lapped traffic.

Cautions on lap 12 and 16 slowed the pace again.

Duncan once again challenged Wagner for the lead, but Brock Zearfoss got inside Duncan taking second. Rahmer, meanwhile, cracked the top five.

Zearfoss nipped Wagner for the lead at the flag stand on lap 25 and secured the top spot as they raced off turn two.

Duncan took third from Wagner as the caution flew again with 26 laps completed.

Following the restart, Rahmer used the middle groove blasting by Wagner, Duncan and eventually Zearfoss for the lead with 29 laps completed.

They were racing in heavy lapped traffic again and Duncan took second from Zearfoss.

The final caution flew and Duncan made his move on the restart for the lead and on to the win over Rahmer by .914.

Rahmer, Zearfoss, Wagner and Speedweek point leader, Trey Starks, completed the top five. Parker Price-Miller, Gerard McIntyre Jr., Ryan Smith, Logan Wagner, who started last, and Tim Shaffer rounded out the top 10.Logan Wagner earned the $500 hard charger award courtesy of Wayne S. Corini, Certified Public Accountant.

Last year’s NASCAR truck series champion and current Xfinity series driver Christopher Bell set fast time over the 32-car field with a lap of 10.456, earning him $500 courtesy of Emory’s Transmission. He finished 11th in the main event.

Starks, Wagner, Zearfoss and Price-Miller won the heats. Tyler Reeser won the B-main.

Unofficially, Starks leads the Speedweek points by 54 over Zearfoss and 55 over Rahmer.

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY

SHULTZ, FRYE, MITCH & COPE TAKE WINS ON SUCCESSFUL KIDS NIGHT

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – The intense summer heat wave was no match for some of the most intense racing of the season Saturday night at Selinsgrove Speedway.

Jason Shultz of Carlisle came away with his second win of the season in the 25-lap 360 sprint car main event at the wheel of the Horstcraft Millworks No. 29 entry. At one point in the race, the top five runners were racing under a blanket in traffic for the lead and ultimate victory.

The super late models also put on a suspenseful race with Coleby Frye of Dover scoring his first win of the year in the 25-lap feature over Hayes Mattern of Beavertown.

Brad Mitch of McClure made a last-lap pass by Shaun Lawton of Bloomsburg to win his second race of the season in the 15-lap pro stock main.

Smith Cope of Danville made it two in a row in the 12-lap roadrunner race after fending off three-time winner Ryan Zook of Mifflintown.

A large turnout of young fans took part in the track’s annual Kids Night in memory of life-long race fan Carol Stuck.

The speedway took a injured and benevolent drivers fund collection which netted $5,182 to benefit injured sprint car driver and former track champion TJ Stutts and the family of the late sprint car driver Jason Johnson. The fund was collected from a variety of sources including a helmet collection by the drivers, a t-shirt sale coordinated by Jim Shuster and a contribution by the speedway.

Selinsgrove Speedway will be back in action at 7:30 p.m. this Tuesday, July 3, with Firecracker 30-lap main events for the 360 sprint cars and super late models paying $3,000 to win and $275 to start. The pro stocks will run a 15-lap race in memory of former track champion C.W. Smith paying $1,028 to win. Tuesday’s race, sponsored by Selinsgrove Ford, will be highlighted by a professional fireworks display. Track gates will open at 5 p.m.

Fourth-place starter Jim Shuster led the first lap of the sprint car feature until sixth-place starter Derek Locke made an outside move in turns one and two for the front spot. On the third circuit, eighth-place starter Jason Shultz advanced to second and started to reel in Locke.

By lap five, Locke was leading Shultz, third-place starter Michael Walter, J. Shuster and 12th-place starter Chad Layton. Seventh-place starter Mark Smith moved into the top five as Shultz gained on Locke in the race for the lead.

With the leaders beginning to encounter slower traffic by lap 15, an intense five-car race for the lead put everyone in the house on the edge of their seats! Locke, Shultz, Walter, Layton, and Smith put on a breathtaking wheel-to-wheel battle.

On lap 19, Locke’s car bobbled in turn two, allowing Shultz to drive into the lead. A lap later, near-calamity struck when two cars spun in front of the leaders in turn four. All the drivers in the lead pack took evasive action and avoided a collision with the disabled race cars!

For the final restart, Shultz kept the field at bay and posted a mere 1.5 second margin of victory over Locke, Walter, Layton, and Smith.

In the super late model feature, third-place starter Jim Yoder powered into the early lead and was followed by fourth-place starter Coleby Frye into the runner-up position on lap one. On the third circuit Yoder and Frye drag raced down the backstretch with Frye taking command of the field coming out of turn four.

On lap eight, sixth-place starter Hayes Mattern drove by fifth-place starter Randy Christine for the third spot. At the halfway point, Frye was leading J. Yoder, Mattern, eighth-place starter Brett Schadel and ninth-place starter Gene Knaub.

Mattern showed a lot of speed the second half of the race and advanced to second on lap 14. In the final five laps Mattern moved within striking distance using the highline of the race track while Frye protected his lead along the bottom.

With two laps to race, Frye stretched his lead while an intense battle for second developed between Mattern, 10th place starter Bryan Bernheisel, and Schadel. At the finish, Frye took the win by 3.5 seconds over Mattern. Bernheisel, Schadel, and J. Yoder completed the top five.

Polesitter Shaun Lawton bolted into the lead at the start of the pro stock feature. Lawton was closely chased by fifth-place starter Brad Mitch and third-place starter Tommy Slanker. At the halfway point, the top five drivers—Lawton, Mitch, Slanker, fourth-place starter Kyle Bachman and second-place starter Brandon Moser—were racing nose to tail within seconds of each other.

On the 14th circuit, Mitch made the winning pass using the inside line through turns one and two by Lawton. Mitch went on to score the win by the slimmest of margins and set a new 15-lap track record in 6:02.789, eclipsing his own mark set in 2013.

Second-place starter Smith Cope wired the field for his second win in a row in the roadrunner race but not without a lot of pressure from polesitter Terry Kramer and seventh-place starter Ryan Zook. On a lap two restart, Zook passed Kramer for second and set his sites on Cope.

On a lap nine restart, Cope stayed in front of Zook while a torrid battle for third unfolded behind them between Kramer, fourth-place starter Jake Jones, and sixth-place starter Bob Bussey.

At the checkered flag, Cope was victorious in a close finish over Zook, Kramer, third-place starter Will Brunson, who had to rejoin the race on the back of the pack on lap two, and Jones.

Williams Grove Honors Career, Impact & Legacy Of Mitch Smith Friday 30th running of Mitch Smith Memorial on tap

7/1/18 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Mechanicsburg – When Williams Grove Speedway opens its gates this Friday night for racing action, it will do so for the 30th year in a row in honor of a famed sprint car great, the late Mitch Smith of Linglestown.

The oval will host the 30th annual Mitch Smith Memorial as part of Pennsylvania Speedweek on July 6 at 7:30 pm.

And the spectacle to honor Smith will pay a very hefty $10,000 to win out of the largest speedweek purse to be posted in all 10 series events.

Richard D. “Mitch” Smith was the original “Mr. Excitement” of Pennsylvania sprint car lore.

At Williams Grove Speedway alone he ended his four-decade long career in 1978 with 27 sprint car wins and nine super modified victories.

But overall on his career, his checkered flags added up to 179.

The name Mitch Smith became cemented nationally when in 1971 the “little guy” from Linglestown trounced the boasting stars of the United States Auto Club, not once, but three times when they towed into the region.

In 1971, USAC was to sprint car racing what the World of Outlaws is today.

USAC competition was the way to Indy. The USAC circuit groomed its drivers to sit on the Indy 500 starting grid.

And start they did.

But on June 19 and September 25 at Williams Grove Speedway in 1971 and again on July 17 at Selinsgrove Speedway, Mitch Smith used a rarely doled out temporary racing permit issued by USAC to just a few local drivers to beat the traveling band – badly.

The USAC stars were furious.

Protests were lodged and tear-downs were performed.

All was legal.

Smith had beaten the unquestionable best in the sprint car business not once, not twice but three times.

The word went out.

“The Linglestown Leadfoot,” Mitch Smith, had trounced USAC in Central Pennsylvania.

Smith retired from the sport in 1978 and in 1988 at the age of 58 was felled by a massive heart attack.

In 1995 Mitch Smith was inducted posthumously into the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame in Knoxville, Iowa.

It is the legacy left behind and the impact that Smith had on the sport in the region and at Williams Grove Speedway that the oval honors again this season with the running of the 30th annual Mitch Smith Memorial on Friday night.

Trey Starks is the defending Smith Memorial winner.

Lance Dewease and Fred Rahmer each count four Smith Memorial wins to their credit.

Stevie Smith won the inaugural event in 1989.

 

 

Williams Grove Hosts Biggest And Best Event Of Speedweek Friday ~
30th Annual Mitch Smith Memorial To Be Staged!

7/1/18
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Mechanicsburg – Still the biggest and the best of all Pennsylvania Speedweek events, the $10,000 to win Mitch Smith Memorial is on tap at Williams Grove Speedway coming up this Friday night, July 6 at 7:30 pm.

The 30th annual running of the Mitch Smith Memorial will take place on Dieffenbach’s Potato Chips Night at the speedway.


Run in honor of the famed late Linglestown racer and begun in 1989, the Mitch Smith Memorial will again be the crown jewel of the annual speedweek series, boasting the largest and most lucrative total purse of all 10 speedweek events, worth nearly $34,000.

And fans can take in the spectacle of sprint car technicians for just $20 while youth ages 13 - 20 can see the show for just $10.

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

Joining the Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprints on the big racing card will be the Mason Dixon Shootout Series for 358 limited late models.


The Mitch Smith Memorial main event for sprint cars will go 30 laps in distance.

A holiday fireworks display is also slated to take place during the night.

Puyallup, Washington's Trey Starks scored a popular victory in last year's Mitch Smith Memorial, claiming the first Williams Grove Speedway main event of his career while at the wheel of the Scott Gobrecht owned No. 44.

Starks has already announced that he will be returning to defend his win in the prestigious event.

This week's Mitch Smith Memorial will be another race in the 2018 Williams Grove Speedway Hoosier Diamond Series.

Jeff Halligan Wins Port Royal 358 Sprints, Devin Hart Sweeps Econo Late Mains
Rine Gets Fourth Of Year In Super Lates, Newlin And Smith Split 305s

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
6/30/18

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Port Royal Speedway welcomed back the 358 sprint cars on Saturday night after a six-year hiatus and it was Jeff Halligan knifing his way through the field to pick up the payday in the Mahoney’s Plumbing and Heating Summer Series event.

Halligan took home the posted $1,500 winner’s share plus another $440 in bonus money he was eligible for thanks to the Hoseheads.com gamblers draw.

Port Royals own Devin Hart turned in an impressive night of work by sweeping both econo late model mains in convincing style, making bold moves to get to the front in both events.

In the super late model main, Jeff Rine also worked forward from mid-pack to pick up a victory but only after seesawing back and forth for the lead in a thrilling battle with former track champion Tim Wilson.

A make-up 305 sprint main saw Zach Newlin pick up his first career Port Royal checkers while Kyle Smith claimed victory in the regular 305 sprint main to get his second oval win of the season.

A total of 105 race cars were in action on Saturday night with 225 laps of scored, green-flag competition put on the books.

Wyatt Hinkle led the first two laps of the 25-lap 358 sprint main before Eric Parker blasted by for the lead in what would be a non-stop feature.

Parker entered the backmarkers on the eighth lap and began working traffic and meanwhile, 10th starter Jeff Halligan was knifing through the field.


Halligan motored into third with 10 laps completed and then made quick work of Hinkle for second.

It took him a bit longer to run down Parker’s advantage but once he caught the pilot he was able to drive by for control with seven laps to go.

Parker waged a brief comeback, shooting under Halligan in an effort to regain the top spot with Halligan was up to the challenge and pulled away for a 2.369 second victory.


Steve Drevicki rode home third followed by Doug Hammaker and Troy Wagaman.

Heats went to Parker, Hammaker and Kyle Denmyer with Steve Wilbur taking the consolation race.

Chad Myers took the lead at the start of the 22-lap super late model main chased by Nick Dickson and Tim Wilson.

Wilson took second on the third lap and began his pursuit of the leader before finally muscling by for the point on a lap nine restart.

Wilson set a good pace once out front but eighth starter Jeff Rine was moving forward to challenge for the lead along with Tim Smith Jr.

Smith went into second on the 11th tour with Rine in third.

Rine raced into second on lap 14 and then ran down the leader with five laps to go and it was at that point that the front duo began performing swapping the lead at each end of the speedway.

Repeatedly, Rine would get in front using the low lane but Wilson would regain control using the high cushion to be scored the leader at the line.

Wilson made one miscue on the cushion with two laps to go and that secured Rine the win as he took advantage of the slip to race to his fourth win of the year at the track.

Wilson rode home second followed by 12th starter Dylan Yoder, Tim Smith J r. and Andy Haus.

Heats went to Rine, Roy Deese Jr., and Haus.

Zach Newlin restarted the make-up 305 sprint main held over from May 5 with six laps completed.

Newlin cruised around the track to pick up his first win at the track by 3.889 seconds over Jonathan Jones, Dylan Shatzer, Nick Sweigart and Drew Ritchey.

Kyle Ganoe led only the first two laps of the regularly slated 305 sprint feature before eighth starter Kyle Smith parted the waters from the fourth row for the lead and win.

Smith ripped around the speedway to record his second win of the year at the oval followed by Nick Sweigart, Ganoe, Ken Duke Jr. and Drew Ritchey.

Heats went to Sweigart, Jon Scarborough, Newlin and Ritchey with the consolation race going to Jimmy White.

In the make-up econo late model main from May 5, Devin Hart started on the pole and raced ahead of Eric Irvin until Irvin got by for control on lap five of the 18-lapper.

However Hart was not to be deterred or denied and he reclaimed the point from Irvin with seven laps to go before beginning to work traffic.

An impressive and slick moved on the backstretch to thread the needle between two backmarkers secured him the win late in the race.

Irvin was second followed by Derick Garman, Kenny Yoder and Tim Fedder.

Second starter Tim Fedder lead from the start in the regular econo late model main while Hart started out in eighth.

Hart was strong during the entire event and took fourth from Todd Snook with nine away and then third from Jared Fulkroad with eight laps to go in the 18 circuit feature.

Restarts on laps 12 and 14 gave Hart clear shots at the leading pair of Fedder and Irvin and the second restart saw him get by both drivers, first with a strong outside sweep in the first turn to get second before he dive-bombed under Fedder in the third turn seconds later to get control after passing both cars on the same lap.

Fedder was second followed by Irvin, Fulkroad and Snook.

Heats went to Hart and Irvin.

DANNY DIETRICH HOLDS OFF LANCE DEWEASE IN NON-STOP 30-LAP SPEEDWEEK THRILLER AT LINCOLN SPEEDWAY;

Travis Perry victorious in the 20-lap Central PA Legends Feature

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 6/30/2018 – In one of the best eight-minute shows a racing fan could ask for, Danny Dietrich fought off a Lance Dewease last-lap, last turn slider and out-raced him to the finish line to win the 19th Annual Kevin Gobrecht Memomrial on Night 2 of Pennsylvania Speedweek action at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

“Shout out to that guy there,” said Dietrich about Dewease following his emotional wing-dance in victory lane. “This feels good. I think you’re going to see a lot of good things between the 69K (Dewease) and 48 (Dietrich)…they have a fast car and so do we.”

“If we would have went another five laps I guess Lance would have been there. It would have been interesting because I was going to move down in turns one and two and I can’t image the bottom in three and four was where he wanted to be, where he was (on the last turns to the checkered), whatever though, that was impressive. I’m just glad to be standing here.”

To be precise, it took eight minutes 9.953 seconds to complete 30 laps. Every driver finished. It all came down to the final turns.

Outside front-row starter Chad Trout got the jump on pole-sitting Dietrich and led the charge for the first nine laps. Trout even fought off a Dietrich slider in turns three and four on lap eight to hang on to the top spot.

“I don’t like leading, I just wanted to feel it out,” said Dietrich on Trout getting the lead at the drop of the green to the 30-lap feature. “He just got around me and I thought I’d just let him go and keep him within reach.”

“Lapped traffic was going to come into play. We weren’t set up for the start. We were set up for the end of the race.”

But the lapped traffic came into play starting on the fifth lap allowing Dietrich to close the gap and eventually nipped Trout at the line to complete the 10th lap as the new leader.

Dietrich took charge at that point and was flying through lapped traffic and had opened up a four second lead after 20 laps were in the books.

All eyes began watching behind Dietrich the final 10 laps as fifth-starting Dewease was making his charge to the front with 10th-starting Brian Montieth in tow.

Dewease and Montieth were closing the gap fast the final five laps but it appeared that Dewease was going to run out of time.

Then on the final lap it appeared Dietrich got loose off the second turn. Dewease closed quickly on Dietrich as they headed up the backstretch and was in position to dive under the leader.

“I could see him in one and two on the bottom there, in the middle, where ever he was there,” said Dietrich on that final lap. “I could damn near see his front wheel.”

“There was rubber on the top of the track and there had to be rubber on the bottom. If I had another lap I would have went to the bottom because I saw Macri get his nose back under me there as I was lapping him. It’s got to be rubbered up. It was rubbered up on entry down there but you couldn’t get off pretty good.

And dive Dewease did.

Everyone stood as the pair raced off the final turns to the checkered. Dietrich had carried more speed through the turns and beat Dewease to the line for a wild non-stop 30-lap, $7,000-to-win Speedweek show.

“I just ran her into three hard,” said Dietrich on the final turns to the checkered. “I knew the slider was coming. I just had to beat him to the apex…that’s what it all came down to.”

Dietrich summed it up perfectly in the end, “That’s an exciting race.”

The win was Dietrich’s third of the year, and the 41st of his career at Lincoln Speedway. It was also his seventh career Pennsylvania Speedweek victory.

Montieth settled for third, with fast timer Lucas Wolfe, and Trout finishing fourth and fifth respectively. Completing the top-10 were Greg Hodnett, Freddie Rahmer, Jim Siegel, Trey Starks, and Alan Krimes.

Sprint heats were won by Dietrich, Freddie Rahmer, Dewease, and Jim Siegel, with Robbie Kendall winning the consolation. Fast time in time trials for the 39-car 410 Sprint field was set by Wolfe with a one-lap time of 14.149-seconds (95.413 MPH).

Travis Perry inherited the lead on the 18th lap when race-long leader Mason Chaney suddenly stopped in the fourth turn with mechanical problems.

Trey Starks Whips Speedweek Opener Field At Williams Grove Friday
Nouse scores third 358 sprint win of season

6/29/18
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Mechanicsburg – Trey Starks wiped up the field in the opener of the 28th annual Pennsylvania Speedweek Series for sprint cars at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, scoring a $5,000 victory over Greg Hodnett.

In the 358 sprint main it was Kevin Nouse of Mechanicsburg scoring for the third time this season while extending his season point lead.

Starks earned the pole for the 25-lap speedweek main for the 410 sprints and entered the rear of the field on the ninth circuit with a lead of over 2.5 seconds.

Chad Trout trailed Starks from the start with Greg Hodnett racing in third.

However after Starks entered traffic, his pace began to falter around the lightning-fast oval surface and both Trout and Hodnett were able to close in.

Trout took a stab at the lead on the 12th tour but Starks was able to recover and maintain control however he benefited from a caution flag that unfurled with 11 laps to go.

The caution was for a slowing Danny Dietrich on the backstretch and it cleared the track for Starks who shot out to a massive advantage when action restarted, turning the fastest laps of the race in the 16-second bracket.

The Washington state leader was way out in front, by more than three seconds when the red flag stopped his pace with four laps to go for a flipping Adrian Shaffer in the fourth corner.

Again Starks jetted away on the restart however this time Hodnett got by Trout for second.

Hodnett failed to close on the leader before the finish however as Starks drove the Scott Gobrecht-owned No. 44 machine across the finish line by a 1.124 second margin.

The victory was the second of Starks’ career at the oval as he also took the 2017 speedweek Mitch Smith Memorial, which is coming up next Friday at the track.

Starks admitted in victory lane that some miscues in traffic as he set the pace was what allowed both Trout and Hodnett to catch him before the lap 14 caution flag.

Trout held on for third followed by a stout James McFadden and Brock Zearfoss.

Sixth went to Rico Abreu who had started 17th in the field.

Abreu earned the Hard Charger Award.

Brian Montieth rode home seventh followed by Freddie Rahmer, Cory Haas and Gerard McIntyre Jr.

Heats went to Lance Dewease, McFadden and Trout with Jared Esh taking the consolation race.

Dewease withdrew from the main event near the halfway point.

Fast time was set by Starks with a lap of 16.603 seconds.

Cody Keller led the first 11 laps of the 20 lap main for 358 sprints before he spun in front of the field in the second turn.

This handed the lead to Scott Fisher with Glenndon Forsythe in second and Kevin Nouse running in third.

Shortly after Fisher crossed the stripe to record lap 13 as the leader, his mount came up lame in the first corner and he exited across the top of the second turn.

Not expecting the sudden slowing of Fisher’s pace, both Forsythe and Nouse blasted onto his tail and nearly collided.

However Nouse got the better of the deal and was able to squeeze by for the lead as Forsythe had to briefly hit the binders before continuing on.

Once at the front, Nouse was never challenged for the win.

Forsythe, Rodney Westhafer, Jeff Halligan and Troy Wagaman Jr. rounded out the top five finishers.

Heats went to Forsythe, Keller and Fisher.

Fred Rahmer Promotions to Award $10,000 at Path Valley for PA Speedweek

Spring Run, P.A. – June 25, 2018 - Fred Rahmer Promotions brought to you by Leffler Energy and Pioneer Pole Buildings returns to Path Valley Speedway Park during Pennsylvania Speedweek on Sunday, July 1st for the fifth annual Fred Rahmer Promotions event showcasing the heart pounding, breathtaking, 410 sprint cars.

“I feel very fortunate that we’re able to be a part of Pennsylvania Speedweek,” said promoter Fred Rahmer. “We only get to do one race a year. We thought a great way to give back to the racers would be to pay a bigger purse for this year’s event. It’s $7,000 to win at most shows that week but it was a no brainer for me to go to $10,000. Last year we had such a great show and turnout so we’re looking to make this year’s bigger and better for both the drivers and fans.”

After a successful career as a driver, Fred Rahmer hung up his helmet and pursued his career as a race promoter. After landing a date during Pennsylvania Sprint Car Speedweek back in 2014, one of the biggest events of the year, the 13x Pennsylvania Speedweek Champion’s business as a promoter skyrocketed.

This year’s fifth annual Fred Rahmer Promotions event of the Pennsylvania Sprint Car Speedweek swing is paying one of the highest purses of the week which is sure to attract some of the biggest names in sprint car racing to the fast ¼-mile, banked clay oval.

“We’re looking to give back to the racers with a better payout than years before and make sure the fans get what they want.”

The 2018 Pennsylvania Sprint Car Speedweek will feature ten straight nights of racing at seven different speedways beginning at Williams Grove on Friday, June 29th with the Fred Rahmer Promotions event at Path Valley Speedway being stop no.3 on Sunday, July 1st of the very popular summer tradition.

The ¼-mile dirt track, known for its high speed, multi-groove, racing will once again feature a spectacle with the fastest cars on dirt.

Headlining the night will be the 410 sprint cars in a full program of qualifying time trials, heat races, and a 50-lap main event.

“This year we’re going to have the sprint cars be the only division,” added Rahmer. “I’d like to try and get everyone in and out in a decent amount of time, so everyone can get home early enough to get to the next speed week show.”

The 50-lap main event will pay a hefty $10,000 to win, $3,500 for second and $400 to take the green.

Courtesy of Emory’s Transmission (Camp Hill, PA), there will be $500 up for grabs for the driver who sets quick time as well as a $500 bonus to the hard charger in the 50-lap feature event courtesy of Wayne S. Corini, Certified Public Accountant.

Last year saw the Elk Grove, C.A. native, Kyle Larson, cross a victory off of his bucket list against 43 other drivers by capturing the 40-lap main event in front of a standing room only crowd. Who will stand on top of the podium and take the checkers this year?

Both pit and grand stand gates will open for the Pennsylvania Speedweek show at 2pm. Time trials will get underway at 7:30pm.

Overnight camping will be available for those that would like the full experience.

The 1/4-mile, banked clay oval in Spring Run, PA may be small, but it is mighty. All fans will be guaranteed some of the tightest wheel-to-wheel action you’ll see during Pennsylvania Sprint Car Speedweek.

358 Late Model Make-up to be determined

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 6/23/2018 – After getting in all the qualifying for the 410 sprints, 358 sprints, and 358 late models, a late rain shower hit the speedway just as the 410 sprints were coming out to run the first of three features.

The rain stopped shortly afterwards. But the damage had been done. With standing water on the track, and high humidity in the air, it was determined it would take hours to get the track back into racing shape.

The 33-lap, $5,000-to-win 410 Sprint feature will be run in addition to the regularly scheduled show on July 14th.

The 20-lap 358 sprint feature will be run in addition to the regularly scheduled show on July 7th.

The 358 late model feature make-up has yet to be determined.

Heats for the 28 410 sprinters on hand were won by Lucas Wolfe, Chase Dietz, and Robbie Kendall, with Alan Krimes winning the consolation.

Heats for the 25 358 sprinters on hand were won by CJ Tracey, Troy Wagaman, Jr., and Dalton Dietrich.

Heats for the 22 358 Late Models on hand were won by Bobby Beard, Bernie Beard, and John Moser.

Next Saturday night, June 30th, Lincoln Speedway will host it ‘s first of two Pennsylvania Speedweek shows along with the 19th Annual Kevin Gobrecht Memorial for the 410 sprints paying $7,000-to-win.

Lucas Wolfe has overtaken Greg Hodnett for the season point lead at Williams Grove although he currently holds a scant 45-point margin.

Wolfe took the season opener at Williams Grove back in March and will be a threat to garner the 2018 PA Speedweek series title while trying to record the 2018 Williams Grove track crown as well.

With two consecutive weeks of 358 sprint racing coming up at the track, Kevin Nouse is locked in a tight battle with Jeff Halligan to claim the season crown.

Just 25 points separate the pair with Nouse leading over Halligan.

Chris Windom Makes It Back-To-Back USAC Eastern Storm Wins At Port Royal
Greg Hodnett Wires Field For Companion Victory In 410s

6/16/18

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Chris Windom of Canton, Illinois, scored the USAC Eastern Storm victory on Saturday night at Port Royal Speedway for the second year in a row, taking the $6,000 victory after exchanging the lead four times with Brady Bacon.

In the regular 25-lap 410 sprint car main, Greg Hodnett wired the field for the $4,000 payday in what was a crash-marred event.

The 30-lap USAC feature saw Windom and Bacon share the front row for the start with Bacon taking the lead over Windom during the early going before the red flag unfurled on just the third lap for a vicious front stretch crash by Trevor Kobylarz.

Kobylarz made contact with the outside wall and flipped in front of the grandstand but escaped injury.

Four more laps were recorded before a yellow flag bunched the field with Bacon still in control over Windom but it wasn’t until lap 12 that the front duo began battling fiercely for control.

Windom blasted under Bacon in the first turn on the 12th lap to slide up and snag the lead but just that quick Bacon dropped off of the cushion and rallied to Windom’s inside racing down the backstretch to regain control by bolting inside in the third turn and driving up to get the lead back.

The next time into turn one, Windom again pulled the same move for control and likewise Bacon again did the same thing as he had done the lap prior and he again dropped off of the cushion, drove a lane lower under Windom on the backstretch and blasted back into control entering the third turn.

After that Bacon stayed just far enough out of Windom’s reach to begin looking like he had a shot at the win only to suddenly slow with 13 laps to go, relinquishing control to Windom just as Jarrett Andretti hit the wall in the second turn.

Both Andretti and Bacon made repairs and tagged to the rear of the field for the restart.

Sixth starter Kevin Thomas Jr., the night’s fast timer in qualifications, tussled with Windom on the restart but gradually the smooth running Windom started to get away on the cushion.

Windom rode the cushion to the victory in the end by .698 seconds over Thomas with Tyler Courtney ending up third.

Robert Ballou and Dave Darland completed the top five.

Sixth through 10th went to Chase Stockon, Justin Grant, Chad Boespflug, Tim Buckwalter and CJ Leary.

Heats went to Zach Daum, Tony DiMattia and Courtney.

Kevin Thomas Jr. of Cullman, Alabama, set a new one-lap track record for wingless sprint cars in time trials with a lap of 18.583 seconds.

Greg Hodnett and AJ Flick started on the front row of the regular 410 sprint car main and Hodnett blasted into control over Flick when the green unfurled.

Hodnett hit traffic with Flick chasing him on the eighth tour and had built up a 3.352 second advantage by lap 10 when Kody Lehman lost power on his machine and rolled to a stop.

Flick got underneath Hodnett on the restart and for just a moment held the lead but Hodnett rode his momentum to regain control while Brock Zearfoss capitalized on on Flick’s move to snare second.

And then the first red flag of the race appeared with 10 laps to go when Trenton Sheaffer slammed into the first turn wall and recoiled back down onto the track.

Sheaffer escaped injury and Flick changed a tire under the red.

When action restarted, the machines of Zearfoss, Mike Wagner and Rick Lafferty dueled for second for several laps before Lafferty finally gained the position over Wagner with six laps to go.

Wagner and Zearfoss then continued to battle for third with contact between the pair ending up with Wagner spinning with two laps to go.

The restart saw a red flag period return when TJ Stutts blasted inside of Steve Buckwalter in the third turn only to make contact while trying to make the pass and flipping wildly into the fourth corner.

A lengthy red flag period followed while Stutts was extricated from the car before being transported to an area hospital to be checked out.

Hodnett drove away on the restart to record his second win of the year at the oval and the 52nd of his career in the facility.

Finishing second was Lafferty, .994 seconds behind, followed by 13th starter Dylan Cisney, Zearfoss and Ryan Taylor.

Sixth through 10th went to Logan Wagner, Jared Esh, Joey Hershey, Bradley Howard and Tyler Reaser.

Heats went to Flick and Hodnett.

MONTIETH WIRES THE FIELD IN PICKING UP HIS THIRD WIN OF THE YEAR IN WELDON STERNER MEMORIAL;

Chase Dietz Scores impressive win in June 2nd Make-up 358 Sprint feature

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 6/16/2018 – Brian Montieth has a knack for winning at the right time, especially at Lincoln Speedway.

Montieth, sporting the Sterner Cement Car Colors and number in honor of the race’s namesake, grabbed the lead from his outside frontrow starting position at the drop of the green and masterfully drove through lapped traffic most of the way to register his 58th career win in the $6,900-to-win 33-lap 15th Annual Weldon Sterner Memorial.

Only two stoppages of action during the course of the 33-lap affair kept the lead cars in heavy lapped traffic most of the way. Montieth was chased the entire distance by polesitter Cory Haas who got a chance with two laps to go. A spin by Chad Trout in turn 2 closed the field bumper-to-bumper, erasing the nearly 2-second advantage by the 6-time track champ.

Haas, Alan Krimes, and Lucas Wolfe tried to mount one last charge as the green flag waved with two laps to go.

But Montieth was, well, Montieth.

The Phoenixville racer got a good start and drove away over the final 2 laps to register a 1.91-second victory over Haas.

Earlier in the race, the first stoppage of the event occurred when a hard-charging Freddie Rahmer was trying to advance from third to second when he flipped in turns one and two, collecting a challenging Robbie Kendall who also flipped.

Heats for the sprinters were won by Robbie Kendall, Cory Haas, and Freddie Rahmer, with Chad Trout winning the consolation.

Fast time in time trials over the 27-car field was set by Anthony Macri with a one-lap time of 13.213-seconds (102.172 MPH).

Heat winners on the original June 2nd show for the 358 sprinters were won by Troy Wagaman, Jr., Tyler Ross, and Brie Hershey.

Heats for the 25 Mid-Atlantic Modifieds were won by Justin Cullum, Brad Kling, and Rick Hulson, with ?? winning the consolation.

Next Saturday night, June 23rd, it will be the FALLEN FIREFIGHTERS NIGHT IN MEMORY OF BRANDON LITTLE along with KIDS NIGHT with the 410 Sprints ($5,000 to win), 358 Sprints, and 358 Late Models in action.

CHRIS WINDOM WINS USAC EASTERN STORM STOP AT WILLIAMS GROVE AND LUCAS WOLFE WINS SPRINT CAR FEATURE

MECHANICSBURG, PA – Chris Windom took the lead from Brady Bacon with five laps to go and went on to win the USAC Sprint Car feature as part of the Eastern Storm Series Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway.

In the regular 25-lap sprint car feature, Lucas Wolfe scored his second win of the season.

Robert Ballou started second and grabbed the race lead at the start of the 30-lap Eastern Storm main event. Bacon passed C.J. Leary for second on the first lap. Windom started fifth and moved into fourth with a pass of Tim Buckwalter. Fast timer Kevin Thomas Jr. was also moving forward and into the top five.

Bacon caught Ballou, but couldn’t make a pass for the lead on a fast racing surface.

The leaders had a close call with a slower car on the front stretch while Windom raced by Leary and into third.

The first caution of the race flew with 13 laps completed.

Windom, the defending USAC sprint car champion, challenged Bacon for second following the restart as the top three raced under a blanket. Bacon took the lead from Ballou off turn two on lap 21.

Windom took second one lap later.

Windom closed on Bacon and took the lead on lap 26 off turn two.

A caution flag slowed the pace with two laps to go.

Windom, of Canton, Ill., controlled the final laps scoring the $6,000 win.

“This win means a lot,” Windom said. “It was so cool to get the first Silver Crown win here (last year). It’s an historical place to win at. This car was awesome.”

Bacon, Ballou, Thomas Jr. and Pennsylvania’s Buckwalter completed the top five. Dave Darland, Chase Stockon, Tyler Courtney, Justin Grant and Leary rounded out the top 10.

Thomas Jr. set fast time and a new track record during qualifying with a lap of 19.509. The top eight drivers all broke the previous record of 20.035. Zach Daum, Jerry Coons Jr. and Tony DiMattia won the heat races.

Matt Boland, Frankie Herr and Jordan Givler won the sprint car heats and started at the front of the 25-lap main event.

Boland led the opening five laps before Herr got by with defending track champion Freddie Rahmer in third.

Sixth starting Lucas Wolfe moved into third as Rahmer took the lead from Herr on lap 12. Wolfe nearly took the lead with one move, but instead only took second from Herr.

Wolfe, of Mechanicsburg, got another good run off the bottom of turn four and got next to Rahmer nipping him at the line for the lead by .030. Wolfe jumped the cushion in turn two giving the lead back to Rahmer, but the caution flag flew and Wolfe reassumed the lead for the restart with six laps to go.

Wolfe controlled the restart and dominated the final laps winning by 3.377 seconds over Rahmer. He earned $3,800 and a free tire.

“I was able to move around a little bit and I found the bottom was a little bit better than what Freddie was doing,” said Wolfe. “It wasn’t enough to get him, but he had a little wrinkle once in traffic and I thought I was going to split both of them, but that didn’t quite happen. I was able to get beside him and I was lucky to beat him back to the line.”

T.J. Stutts and Brian Montieth passed Herr finishing third and fourth. Herr finished fifth. Brock Zearfoss, Givler, Steve Buckwalter, Antony Macri and Cory Haas rounded out the top 10.

Eastern Storm continues Saturday night at Port Royal Speedway.

GONNA PARTY LIKE IT’S HIS BIRTHDAY: KEVIN THOMAS JR. SET FOR ASSAULT ON GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY, THURSDAY, JUNE 14 FOR USAC EASTERN STORM OPENER

BECHTELSVILLE, PA (June 12, 2018) –There will be plenty of reasons for Kevin Thomas, Jr. to celebrate heading into Thursday, June 14 and the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car Series Eastern Storm opener at Grandview Speedway.

Thomas currently sits atop the USAC series, holds three wins this season, and will spend his 27th birthday on ‘The Hill in Bechtelsville.’

“I can’t wait to get to the east coast,” Thomas said of the series’ only campaign in this region. “The tracks are a lot of fun, and the fans make us feel wanted. Grandview is on my birthday – and there’s no place I’d rather be.”

NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series brings the USAC stars to Grandview Speedway for the 12th consecutive event – the only track to be a part of the Eastern Storm since USAC's return to Pennsylvania in 2007 – on Thursday, June 14 with a 7:30 PM race time.

With three wins on the season, Thomas and the famed Hoffman Family No. 69 hold a 24-point advantage over Tyler ‘Sunshine’ Courtney – who picked up his fourth season win this past weekend at Knoxville Raceway.

“We’ve been running really strong so far,” Thomas said. “We had a little hiccup this past weekend at Knoxville, but we’re looking to getting back on track this week.”

Grandview Speedway’s $6,000-to-win, 40-Lap Jesse Hockett Classic – named after the 2009 race winner, who lost his life in a garage accident just before defending his win -- marks the first of a consecutive six race week for Thomas and his USAC brethren.

“An Eastern Storm Championship would be a great birthday present, and a nice addition to our resume,” Thomas admitted.

While Thomas holds 21 career USAC wins, only seven drivers have found Grandview Speedway Victory Lane. Previous event winners include Levi Jones (2007, 2010), Jesse Hockett (2009), Bobby East (2011), Bryan Clauson (2012, 2015), Daron Clayton (2013) Chase Stockon (2014), and Brady Bacon (2016).

Also on the agenda, the NASCAR 358 Modifieds compete in a 30-lap event with a $3,000 top prize. The event is open to all 358 Modified competitors that meet Grandview rule specifications. Competitors will draw for heat starting positions, where the top-12 qualified cars will re-draw for feature starting positions. The 30-lap event pays $1,000 for a fifth-place finish and $300 to start.

Top Modified combatants like Billy Pauch Sr., Ryan Watt, Jeff Strunk, Craig VonDohren, and current Grandview point leader, Brett Kressley aim to excite the greatest race fans in the area.

JIM SIEGEL ENDS YEAR-LONG WIN DROUGHT WITH A VICTORY AT LINCOLN SPEEDWAY;

Jeff Halligan puts Hammaker No.66 into Victory Lane in Winning 360/350 Sprint Challenge

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 6/9/2018 – Jim Siegel and the fans finally got a win Saturday night at Lincoln Speedway.

After six straight weeks of rain-outs the fans got a win by being treated to some good old racing Saturday night. And for New Oxford’s Jim Siegel, he finally got a win after a year-long drought by winning the 25-lap $4,000-to-win 410 sprint feature.

Fourth-starting Siegel chased down pole-sitter and race-long leader Landon Myers of York to be in position to take advantage of an eighth lap caution restart to take the lead. The third-generation racer then had six-time champ Brian Montieth get to second place just as he grabbed the lead and held him off through the first half the race.

But before Montieth could make a serious bid for the lead, along came seventh-starting Freddie Rahmer who passed Montieth for second just prior to the halfway mark.

Rahmer closed and began trying to slip under and then around Siegel while racing through lapped traffic as the laps wound down.

With five laps to go Rahmer got his nose under Siegel exiting the fourth turn. But Siegel held his ground and closed the door on Rahmer heading into the second turn.

Siegel then drove flawlessly through lapped traffic the final laps to record his first win anywhere since September 2016. Siegel took the checkered 1.22 seconds ahead of Rahmer for his 14th career win at the Pigeon Hills oval.

11th-starting Alan Krimes got by a failing Montieth sprinter on the final lap to finish third. Montieth held on for fourth, and Tim Glatfelter fifth.

Completing the top-10 were Cory Haas, 19th-starting Chad Trout, Kyle Moody, Glenndon Forsythe, and Anthony Macri.

Heats for the 27 410 Sprinters were won by Myers, Cole Young, and Dwayne Gutshall, with Trout winning the consolation.

Jeff Halligan represented the 358 sprint division well by leading all 25-lap of the special 360/358 Sprint Challenge. Halligan drove the Hammaker No.66 out front at the drop of the green from his outside front row starting spot and survived a crash-marred early portion of the event and then held off sprint car veteran Lucas Wolfe the final laps to record the win.

It was Halligan’s second win of the year at Lincoln and the seventh of his career.

Wolfe was second, followed by polesitter Chris Arnold, Troy Wagaman, Jr., and Chandler Leiby.

Completing the top-10 were Curt Michael, Cody Fletcher, Kevin Nagy, Ashley Cappetta, and Tyler Walton.

Heats for the 40 360/358 Challenge sprinters were won by Michael, Dylan Norris, Arnold, and Wagaman. Twin Consolations were won by Adam Carberry and Bryn Gohn.

Next Saturday night, June 16th, Lincoln Speedway will try again to run the 15TH ANNUAL WELDON STERNER MEMORIAL for the 410 Sprints ($3,500 to win), along with the 358 Sprints, and Mid-Atlantic Modifieds.

Competition Pit gates will open at 5 PM, Spectator Pit Admission & General Admission gates will open at 5:30 PM. Hot laps will get underway at 7 PM, with time trials getting underway at 7:30 PM.

Greg Hodnett Gets First 410 Sprint Win Of Williams Grove Season, Covert Survives First Lap Melee To Take Late Models

6/8/18

Mechanicsburg – Greg Hodnett won his first 410 sprint car feature of the season on Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway, driving by TJ Stutts on a restart to get the $3,800 victory.

The win was the 73rd of Hodnett’s career at Williams Grove.

The Tri-Track Challenge super late model main was taken by Jason Covert after a horrible opening lap backstretch crash that claimed some 10 cars out of the field.

TJ Stutts and Hodnett had the front row for the stat of the sprint car main and Hodnett dogged Stutts for the lead from the very start but couldn’t find a way around him despite relentless efforts to snag the top spot.

The first caution flag of the race appeared on the third lap, breaking up the battle and only one more lap could be completed before the red flag unfurled for a backstretch rollover by Jared Esh.

Hodnett again stalked Stutts when action resumed but no matter what the Spring Grove driver tried, Stutts was able to keep him at bay.

The leaders entered the backmarkers on the 12th tour, still with Hodnett hounding Stutts.

And then on lap 14 another red flag came out, this time for a first turn flip by Steve Buckwalter.

The ensuing restart saw a different stragegy unfold for Hodnett as instead of racing into the first turn a lane higher than Stutts, he entered way up top on the cushion and blasted the top to get a nice run off of the second corner.

This gave him a surge down the backchute that allowed him to bolt to Stutt’s inside in the third turn and take control of the event with 10 laps to go.

Hodnett never looked back after taking over the point while Lucas Wolfe took second away from Stutts with eight laps to go.

Wolfe was making good time around the track but Hodnett ended up taking the win by 2.650 seconds with Cory Haas crossing the line in third followed by Stutts and Freddie Rahmer.

Sixth through 10th went to Anthony Macri, Brandon Rahmer, Rodney Westhafer, Jimmy Siegel and Ryan Taylor.

Heats went to Stutts, Hodnett and Brandon Rahmer.

The 30-lap super late model main saw Rick Eckert and Coleby Frye start on the front row followed by Tyler Bare, Jason Covert, Jeff Rine and Bryan Bernheisel.

Frye got the drop on Eckert when action began but “the big one” was soon to follow as Jeff Rine, Tyler Bare and Covert went three-wide down the backstretch.

With Rine down low and Bare in the middle, Bare was the first to back out of the throttle as the trip approached the end of the backchute but as he did so, contact was made with both Covert and Rine.

And while Covert kept control, Rine got turned sideways and slammed head-on into the inside guardrail before careening back up across the track as the entire field bore down on him and the third corner.

Massive carnage and tremendous impacts ensued with 10 cars collected in the melee.

Involved was Rine along with Gary Stuhler, Billy Wampler, Bare, Mike Lupfer, Reese Masiello, Matt Nailor, Dave Brouse Jr., Jamie Lathroum and Jerry BArd.

Luckily, all drivers were reported to have escaped injury although several cars were totally destroyed.

Rick Eckert then beat Frye back to the line when the first lap was restarted with Covert up to third.

Covert took second from Frye on the third lap and gave chase of the leader from that point on.

Slowly but surely, Covert tracked down the pacesetter, racing to Eckert’s inside repeatedly in the third corner.

He finally made the move work on the 15th tour, edging to Eckert’s inside at the line and then seconds later, Eckert slowed to a stop with a blown left rear tire.

A final caution flag with nine laps to go produced an exciting three-car battle for second between Dylan Yoder, Frye and Bare who restarted at the rear after the opening lap carnage.

The trio swapped the spot several times over the final laps before Frye took it for good while Bare ended up third followed by Yoder and Matt Cosner.

Sixth through 10th went to Tyler Horst, Bryan Bernheisel, Danny Snyder, Dave Stamm and Larry Baer.

Heats went to Eckert, Rine and Frye.

Bernheisel set fast time with a lap of 20.800 seconds.

THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES

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

12TH ANNUAL EASTERN STORM BREWING AND HEADING TO GRANDVIEW WITH JESSE HOCKETT CLASSIC THURSDAY, JUNE 14

It's a phrase I hate to say, especially with all the rainy weather we've experienced this year. The EASTERN STORM is brewing and the thunder and lightning are heading east.

For the 12th consecutive year, the AMSOIL USAC Non-Wing Sprints EASTERN STORM will open at the Grandview Speedway on Thursday night, June 14. This wildly popular event is always a crowd pleaser as the nationally known stars rim-ride the outside boilerplate of the one-third mile Grandview Speedway in Bechtelsville, PA. The USAC Non-wing sprints will team up with the 358 NASCAR Modifieds with gates opening at 5:00 and qualifying taking the green flag at 7:30 PM.

With all the hype of this event, let's take a moment to remember Jesse Hockett, one of USAC's finest who lost his life in an electrical accident in 2010, preparing for the Eastern Storm. It was the prior year, 2009 when The "Rocket Man" swept the Twin 20's in the same night at Grandview Speedway. Hockett had one of the most exciting driving styles, a passion for the race fans and always a joy to hear when he was interviewed in victory lane. Hockett is certainly missed but he will always be remembered with the 40 lap, $6,000 to win Jesse Hockett Classic.

The RT Racing #14 USAC Sprint Car driven by Trevor Kobylarz is running the Berks County Animal Rescue League "Patriotic Paws" Logo during the 2018 season. Patriotic Paws is a program to save animals and to honor those who've bravely served our country. The team's goals are to raise awareness about the program and raise funds to support the program and the rescue league. There are two avenues to help the cause:

Kobylarz's RT Racing Team will be selling team t-shirts with an added twist. The cost for the shirt is $20 for Small through X-Large, $22 for 2X-Large, and $23 for 3X-Large. There are 3 colors available, Black, Grey, and Blue.

Trey Starks Strikes For First Career Port Royal Sprint Car Win

 Rine Holds Off Yoder For Tri-Track Late Model Challenge
Kevin Imes claims xtreme stocks

6/2/18

PORT ROYAL, Pa. –Trey Starks of Puyallup, Washington, struck of his first career Port Royal Speedway sprint car win on Saturday night, out-dueling Aaron Reutzel and Greg Hodnett for the victory, worth $3,600.

In the 30-lap Tri-Track Late Model Challenge event for super late models, Jeff Rine held off the advances of Dylan Yoder to pick up his third win of the season at the track, worth $3,000.

And the 15-lap xtreme stock main was taken by Kevin Imes to close out the night.

Jared Esh and Trey Starks began the 25-lap 410 sprint car main on the front row and Starks raced into control when action got underway with sixth starter Aaron Reutzel of Clute, Texas, blasting into second on the first lap.

Point leader Greg Hodnett started eighth in the field and followed Reutzel through on the opening lap to take over third.

But Hodnett would struggle to keep pace with leader Stars and Reutzel as the field strung out and the race entered traffic on the sixth tour.

While both leaders were slinging around the top, Reutzel gradually closed in on Starks and took his first stab at control on the 12th tour when he attempted a dive underneath in the third turn only to come up short and lose some ground to the leader.

Reutzel regrouped and again dialed in for the lead and took another shot in the third turn with 10 laps to go, again coming up short and losing ground.

It took two more laps for Reutzel again to catch the leader as he worked traffic and this time he put on a blast across the bottom that netted him control as he slid up to catch the cushion in turn four.

Not to be outdone, Starks turned the car and dropped off of the cushion to drag race Reutzel up the frontchute as the pair headed to the line.

Reutzel came down across the track in an attempt to thwart Starks but the Washington pilot reclaimed the lead at the stripe, albeit a narrow advantage.

Seconds later, Reutzel blew a left rear tire and clouted the third turn wall, ending his race.

The restart put Hodnett on Stark’s tail with Hodnett taking his shot in the first turn as he attempted a bottom groove move to take the lead but Starks rode his outside lane momentum to drive back around Hodnett and maintain control.

After the restart skirmish, Starks worked around the track to take the win aboard Scott Gobrecht’s No. 44 by 1.750 seconds ahead of Hodnett.

TJ Stutts was third followed by Brock Zearfoss and Jared Esh.

Sixth through 10th went to Anthony Macri, Blane Heimbach, Dylan Cisney, Gerard McIntyre Jr., and Mike Wagner.

Starks became the 190th different driver to win a sprint car race in the history of Port Royal Speedway.

Heats went to Paul McMAhan, Stutts and Starks with AJ Flick taking the consolation.

Dylan Yoder and Jeff Rine held the front row to start the 30-lap Tri-Track Challenge race for the super late models and Rine edged ahead of Yoder on the first lap.

Only the first five laps could be recorded before Andy Haus blew a rear tire, bunching the field for a restart.

Yoder worked the high line throughout the entire race, keeping pace with Rine during the first half of the event but failing to challenge.

A second caution flag unfurled with 14 laps to go and the restart again saw Yoder challenging Rine for command.

As the event wore on, Yoder’s outside runs seemed to be working better and with five laps to go, he was nose to tail with Rine in traffic.

It was then that both leaders nearly crashed out of the event as they raced behind a backmarker onto the frontstretch.

With the slow car in their line, Rine refused to yield the lane for another line and Yoder got a great run off of the fourth corner.

This bottled up the pair with Yoder getting into Rine’s rear deck and Rine wiggling, nearly getting out of control as he tried to avoid running into the slow car just in front.

Somehow, both drivers recovered to keep their cars straight and then Rine drove away during the final three laps for the win.

Yoder crossed the line 1.427 seconds behind while Kyle Lee finished third followed by Tyler Bare and Coleby Frye.

Sixth through 10th went to Matt Cosner, Jerry Bard, Tim Smith Jr., Mike Lupfer and Andy Haus.

Heats went to Rine, Frye and Yoder with Chris Casner winning the consolation.

Kyle Lee set quick time over the field with a lap of 19.292 seconds.

Kevin Imes led all 15 laps of the xtreme stock main to record his first win of the year and the second of his Port Royal career.

Josh Bender and Jeremy Stremmel rounded out the top three.

Danny Dietrich Wins First Of Williams Grove 410 Sprint Season Rich Eichelberger and Doug Hammaker split 358 sprint mains

6/1/18

Mechanicsburg – Danny Dietrich of Gettysburg scored his first Williams Grove Speedway sprint car win of the season on Friday night, taking home $4,100 for the victory that included a $500 bonus for winning from the fourth row.

Veteran Rich Eichelberger took the win in the make-up 358 sprint main, held over to be completed after rains hit with four laps completed on May 11.

The regularly slated 358 sprint main was taken by Doug Hammaker.

The 25-lap 410 sprint main was marred by a pair of red flags before the first lap could even be completed.

The first red flag came out when Adrian Shaffer slammed the inside frontstretch row and flipped over while Tyler Ross also flipped coming out of turn four.

The ensuing restart saw a five-car melee ensue on the frontstretch that involved TJ Stutts, Kody Lehman, Nicole Bower, Dwight Leppo and Jim Shuster.

On each attempted start including the one that saw the first lap able to be completed, Dover’s Landon Myers took the lead over Eric Tomecek.

Tomecek was soon overtaken by fourth starter Lucas Wolfe however although Wolfe was unable to close in on Myers for the lead.

Instead, he eventually had to contend with Danny Dietrich, who moved into third with six laps completed.

Dietrich chased down Wolfe and snared the spot narrowly on the ninth tour.

And by that time, Myers was far enough in front to lead another four laps before Dietrich could catch him.

His first attempt at taking the lead saw Myers fight back around the outside of the first and second turns to reclaim the spot but seconds later as the pair raced into the third turn, Dietrich shot low and came up with the lead before running away from the field to the finish.

Wolfe relegated Myers to third with three laps to go before Freddie Rahmer backed him up to fourth at the finish.

Cory Haas rode home fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Greg Hodnett, Steve Buckwalter, Rodney Westhafer, Anthony Macri and Mallie Shuster.

Heats went to Myers and Adrian Shaffer.

The victory was the 19th of Dietrich’s careeer at Williams Grove.

Doug Hammaker would end up leading all 20 laps of the regulary-slated 358 sprint main.

Brie Hershey raced a challenging second for the first three laps before Chase Dietz overtook her for the spot.

Dietz was riding Hammaker’s fuel cell, appearing ready to make a move for control when the red flag appeared with six laps to go when point leader Kevin Nouse flipped outside the first corner in wild fashion.

On the restart, Hammaker looked stronger and pulled away to the win, his first of the season at the track and sixth of his overall Williams Grove career.

Dietz settled for second followed by Troy Wagaman Jr., Hershey and Matt Findlay.

Sixth through 10th went to Todd Rittenhouse Jr., Jeff Halligan, Scott Fisher, Scott Arnold and Brent Shearer.

Heats went to Fisher, Hammaker and Hershey.

Rich Eichelberger of Dillsburg restarted second behind Todd Rittenhouse Jr. with four laps completed in the make-up 358 sprint main only after the slated leader took himself out during warm ups.

Cody Keller was leading the race on May 11 when the rains hit and was slated to restart with the lead only to flip in practice laps and sideline himself for the night.

Rittenhouse led until lap 14 when Eichelberger drove to his outside coming out of turn two to take command and the victory.

It was the third win of Eichelberger’s career at the track.

Troy Wagaman Jr. got by Rittenhouse for second with Dwight Leppo finishing fourth and Brie Hershey riding home fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Chase Dietz, Glenndon Forsythe, Brent Shearer, Kevin Nouse and Chris Frank.

THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES

AMSOIL USAC NON-WING SPRINTS 12TH ANNUAL EASTERN STORM TO OPEN AT GRANDVIEW THURSDAY, JUNE 14

BECHTELSVILLE, PA – If you have never seen the USAC non-wing sprint cars at Grandview, block the date of Thursday night, June 14 and plan to attend the Thunder on the Hill Racing Series event at the Grandview Speedway. The always exciting one-third mile high banked oval is the perfect venue for the exciting and well known USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car Series. The Eastern Storm, now in its’ twelfth season, and as tradition, will open at the Grandview Speedway.

The USAC non-wing sprints with a 410 motor have a reputation for wheel-banging, rooster tails and slide jobs and its’ all just part of the show. At Grandview Speedway, the USAC drivers are most comfortable grazing the outside boiler plate with their rear bumper taking the longest route around the track.

For all of the reasons mentioned, this event is one of the hottest tickets of the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series. Along with the nationally known USAC Stars, the local favorites of the 358 Modifieds will be on the racing program. Both divisions will compete in qualifying leading up to the 40 lap $6,000 to win Jesse Hockett USAC Non-Wing Classic and a 30 lap, $3,000 to win modified main event.

It all started In 2007 when Thunder on the Hill special events promoter, Bob Miller and the Rogers Family, brought the nation’s longest touring Sprint Car group back to Pennsylvania after a nearly 30-year absence from the region.

“I vividly remember USAC being such an integral part of the Reading Fairgrounds history,” Miller recollects. “In some ways, my love of Reading made me so passionate about bringing USAC back to the east coast and specifically back to Berks County at Grandview.”

USAC came back in full force and remains one of the must-see events of the racing season.

Forty Eastern Storm events have been held since the debut of the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car Championship in 2007. Levi Jones and Bryan Clauson are tied with the most wins of Eastern Storm history with six victories each. Five different drivers reached victory lane in 2017 – three for the first time in Storm history — while Chris Windom went on to win the Eastern Storm Championship.

Heading into the 12th Eastern Storm, the Bechtelsville, PA dirt track opens the tour with the Jesse Hockett Classic, a 40 lap battle for the non-wing 410 sprint cars joined by the 358 modifieds in this Double Header. Gates open at 5 PM with race time set or 7:30 PM. Grandview and Thunder on the Hill are the only facility to have held a USAC event in every year of Eastern Storm history. Defending winner of this event on the hill is Brady Bacon.

The series heads to Mechanicsburg, PA’s Williams Grove Speedway on Friday, June 15, while Port Royal Speedway brings the series into night number three on Saturday, June 16.

York Haven, PA’s Susquehanna Speedway lands on the schedule for the sixth consecutive year, on Sunday, June 17. For the first time, United States Auto Club drivers head to Bridgeport Speedway on Monday, June 18 and the Storm concludes on Tuesday, June 19 at Weedsport Speedway.

Past Eastern Storm winners like Robert Ballou – who swept all three 2015 events, Brady Bacon – who holds wins at Grandview Speedway and Port Royal Speedway, Chad Boespflug, and Chase Stockon are expected for competition.

The Eastern Storm kicks off on Thursday, June 14 with the Jesse Hockett Classic – dedicated to the memory of the 2009 Grandview race winner. On that night, Hockett thrilled the crowd winning both feature events in the same night.

Key sponsors are returning for the 29th season of the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series. Joining NAPA Auto Parts is Pioneer Pole Buildings, Levan Machine and Truck Equipment and GALCO Business Communications.

Lucas Wolfe Makes It Back-To-Back Port Royal Weikert Memorial Wins Rick Eckert Sweeps Super Late Model Port Royal Weekend

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 5/27/18

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Lucas Wolfe made it back to back triumphs in the Port Royal Speedway Bob Weikert Memorial for 410 sprint cars on Sunday night, scoring his second win in a row in the prestigious race, earning $10,000 for the big win.

In the Northeast Ultimate Super Late Model Series feature, York’s Rick Eckert completed a clean sweep of weekend late model action at the track, scoring a convincing win in the 35-lap main that paid $5,000 to win.

Polesitter Dylan Cisney jumped into the lead over second starter Logan Wagner at the start of the 30-lap Bob Weikert Memorial for the sprint cars and was holding sway on the lightning-fast track when the first caution flag of the race unfurled with four laps completed for the stopped racer of Anthony Macri.

The restart saw Cisney maintain control as he hooked the cushion in every turn to maintain his advantage.

With 10 laps in, Cisney was holding a .836 second lead over Wagner and Wolfe with Lance Dewease running fourth.

Cisney then hit traffic and that really bunched the front of the field up as Wagner narrowed the gap by lap 13 all the while having Wolfe, Dewease and David Gravel within one turn as all five cars battled for control at the same time.

Wagner was able to slip by Cisney in the second turn on the 14th tour but then Cisney attempted a comeback that also lost him second as Wagner crossed the stripe with a .194 second lead over Wolfe.

Cisney then regrouped and reclaimed second from Wolfe during the dizzying, high-speed dance at the front that was being spun off between all five front runners.

The breathtaking and dizzying pace between all five was slowed with 17 away when Cory Haas stopped on the backstretch.

The restart saw Wolfe dispose of Cisney for good and set his sights on Wagner who appeared to be ready to run to his first win aboard his new ride in the Zemco No. 1

But with eight laps to go, his dreams of victory went over a cliff when his left rear tire disintegrated, handing the lead to Wolfe with Cisney second followed by Dewease, Gravel and Brock Zearfoss.

Dewease pounced on the low side on the restart and set Cisney back a spot before trying just to keep the leader in sight.

And then Cisney burst a left rear with four laps to go, again bunching the field.

Dewease was never able to challenge over the final four circuits as Wolfe drove away on the restart.

Wolfe took his eighth career Port Royal win by 1.264 seconds over Dewease, Gravel, Zearfoss and Ryan Smith.

Sixth through 10th went to Danny Dietrich, Greg Hodnett, Trey Starks, Brent Marks and Freddie Rahmer.

Heats went to Mike Wagner, Cisney, Steve Buckwalter and Dietrich with Jared Esh taking the consolation.

Fast time was set by Greg Hodnett with a lap of 15.234 seconds, an average speed of 126.829 mph.

Rick Eckert would lead all 35 laps of the super late model main, chased by Jeff Rine throughout.

The race was riddled with caution flags including on laps one, three, nine, 14 and 16.

Eckert started second in the race with Rine starting third and Rine got around Gene Knaub for second on the lap one restart.

For the first half of the race, Rine seemed to have a chance at the win as Eckert allowed him to close in around the corners but during the second half of the race, especially through traffic starting on lap 25, Eckert poured on the power and speed to take his sixth career Port Royal win by seven seconds flat.

Ross Robinson and 20th starter Kyle Lee raced hard for third during the final 10 laps with Robinson holding on to the spot at the finish.

Lee’s massive run from the back netted him fourth with Donny Schatz finishing fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Matt Cosner, Dan Stone, Dylan Yoder, Gary Stuhler and Ryan Montgomery.

Heats went to Eckert, Rine and Robinson with Dan Stone winning the consolation race.

Fast time was set by Eckert with a lap of 17.677 seconds.

Lance Dewease Opens Port Royal Weikert Memorial Weekend With Win In 461 Rick Eckert Scores Northeast Ultimate Late Models

5/26/18

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Lance Dewease of Fayetteville picked up his 109th career Port Royal Speedway 410 sprint car win on Saturday night in the Bob Weikert Memorial weekend Fallen Heroes Championship at Port Royal speedway.

Dewease’s 30-lap win was worth $5,000 and it came aboard a Walt Dyer Masonry No. 461 throw-back car painted to mirror the mount he drove for Dyer decades ago.

York’s Rick Eckert took the win in the Fallen Heroes Championship for the Northeast Ultimate Super Late Model Series, pocketing $3,000 for his fifth career win at the oval.

Dewease started third in the sprint car field and would end up leading the first lap over David Gravel and Lucas Wolfe but not before exchanging the point twice.

As Wolfe and Gravel battled for control into the first turn as the green flag unfurled Dewease was stalking on the low side and drove right by both cars to get command but Gravel rode the top lane to get control back as the pair shot onto the backstretch.

Seconds later the trio blasted into the third turn and again Dewease stuck down low in his money lane and rode the line into the lead.

The first caution flag of the race came out with two laps in when Logan Wagner clouted the outside first and second turn wall before coming to a stop.

A double file restart saw Dewease choosing the inside line and he made it work over Gravel when action resumed.

Dewease entered traffic with eight laps away finding Gravel and eighth starter Greg Hodnett in tow.

The leader had a 3.930 second advantage when a red flag stopped action on the 13th tour after some hard contact in the first turn.

Danny Dietrich was running seventh in the field when he got out of shape in the first corner and spun.

Aaron Ott slammed into Dietrich’s mount and flipped, but escaped injury. Dylan Cisney was also involved.

The restart again saw Dewease choose the inside lane with Gravel flanking him and he drove away on the restart and over the final 17 laps to record the popular victory by 4.307 seconds.

It was his second consecutive victory in the Fallen Heroes Championship to open the Weikert Memorial weekend.

Gravel was second followed by Greg Hodnett, Lucas Wolfe and Brock Zearfoss.

Sixth through 10th went to TJ Stutts, Logan Schuchart, Brent Marks, Dylan Cisney and Trey Starks.

Heats for the 30-car field went to Joey Hershey, Blane Heimbach, Dewease and Jacob Allen with AJ Flick taking the consolation..

Wolfe set quick time with a lap of 16.490 seconds.

Eckert started second in the NUSLMS feature and took the lead over Jason Covert and Jeff Rine when action began.

Covert and Rine battled for second for the first one-third of the race before Rine took the spot as the leader entered traffic on the 12th lap.

A restart on the 17th lap saw Gary Stuhler work around Jeff Rine for second spot however Eckert was pulling away and he continued to do so to the finish.

Eckert’s margin of victory was 4.766 seconds over Stuhler, Dylan Yoder, Jeff Rine and Donny Schatz.

Sixth through 10th went to Jason Covert, Jared Miley, Dan Stone, Kyle Lee and Ross Robinson.

Heats for the 34-car field went to Rine, Eckert, Covert and Stuhler with twin consolations going to Trent Brenneman and Chris Casner.

Fast time over the late models was set by Covert with a lap of 19.609 seconds.

Buckwalter Claims Walt Dyer Tribute At Williams Grove Friday
Austin Bishop wins second 305 main of year at track

5/25/18
 

Mechanicsburg – Steve Buckwalter of Royersford wired the field to pick up the Walt Dyer Tribute Race at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, pocketing $4,610 for his ninth career sprint car win at the oval.

Austin Bishop likewise wired the field in the 305 sprint main to pick up his second 305 win of the season at Williams Grove Speedway.

Buckwalter started on the pole of the 25-lap 410 sprint car main with TJ Stutts to his outside.

The first start of the main was red flagged for a five-car tangle coming out of the third turn that collected Chad Trout, Mallie Shuster, Rodney Westhafer, Ryan Taylor and Danny Dietrich.

The ensuing restart saw Buckwalter take control over Stutts and Greg Hodnett in what would turn out to be a non-stop affair.

Campaigning a throw back paint scheme in honor of Dyer and his iconic No. 461 race car, Lance Dewease started fifth in the field and battled fourth starter Anthony Macri for the first half of the race in an effort to take the fourth spot.

Dewease was on a campaign to pick up the feature in honor of his former car owner Dyer however it was not to be as Buckwalter proved stout at the point.

Hodnett got by Stutts for second on the seventh tour and chased Buckwalter over the rest of the distance but was never able to get close enough to mount a challenge.

Buckwalter and his No. 17B ended up crossing the finish line .805 seconds ahead of Hodnett with Stutts riding hom third followed by Dewease and Macri.

Sixth through 10th went to Brock Zearfoss, Lucas Wolfe, Cory Haas, Aaron Ott and Brian Montieth.

Heats went to Montieth, Stutts and Macri with Alan Krimes taking the consolation race.

Lance Dewease set quick time with a lap of 16.556 seconds.

Prior to the races, Dyer drivers Dewease, Steve Siegel, Mike Wagner, Don Hill, Joey Allen, Paul Lotier, Jimmy Sheaffer, Van May, Tommy Beavers, Cliff Brian, Tom Stimely and Len Thompson all joined Dyer for a reunion and autograph session.

Bishop led all 20 l aps of the 305 sprint main to pick up his win.

Ken Duke Jr. lost second early in the race but then reclaimed the spot for the finish.

Jeff Geiges rode hom third followed by Scott Ellerman and Zach Newlin.

Heats for the 42 cars in action went to Rick Stief, Mike Alleman, Darren Miller and Jon Scarborough.

Twin consolations went to Jonathan Jones and Alex Potosky.

Williams Grove Dyer Tribute Night Brings Together Host Of No. 461 Drivers Friday Meet and greet, live Beer Hill Gang TV broadcast slated

5/20/18

Mechanicsburg – As part of this Friday’s Walt Dyer Tribute Race at Williams Grove Speedway honoring the former prolific car owner, the track will bring together several of Dyer’s drivers who campaigned his iconic No. 461 sprint car over the years.

Dewease Rockets To 89th Career Win In Williams Grove Sprints Rains halt 358 sprints

5/11/18

Mechanicsburg – Lance Dewease of Fayetteville rocketed to his 89th career Williams Grove Speedway sprint car win on Friday night, worth $4,000 in what was a tune up for the regulars as they prepare for next week’s invasion by the World of Outlaws.

The victory put Dewease just one back of tying Fred Rahmer for the most sprint car wins in history at the oval.

Steve Buckwalter and Dewease earned the pole for the 25-lap main event and Buckwalter beat Dewease off of the blocks when the green flag fell over the field.

However only one lap could be scored before Rodney Westhafer stopped on the track, slowing the pace.

The restart turned to a red flag when TJ Dehaven hopped a wheel in the first turn and flipped outside the track.

Buckwalter of Royersford got away from Dewease when action resumed but it only took a few laps for Dewease to get his No. 69K clicking and he began biting into Buckwalter’s advantage by lap seven.

For three consecutive laps Dewease drove down considerable chunks of the lead and as the pair crossed the stripe to complete lap nine, they were nose to tail.

A low swoop through the first and second turns just moments later netted Dewease the lead as he bit fast off of the inside of the second turn to blast into control.

And from there he worked traffic with ease, slicing through the field to have a full straightaway advantage over the field by lap 17.

With Dewease out front, Lucas Wolfe took second shortly after the halfway point and then he and Danny Dietrich battled for the spot late in the race.

Another yellow flag with four laps to go wiped out Dewease’s 4.3 second margin and on the restart Wolfe buzzed the top in the first and second turns in an effort to steal the win but Dewease’s low line was his money lane as he pulled away off of the second turn.

The battle for second between Wolfe and Dietrich then continued with Dietrich gaining the spot on lap 23 before a final caution flag with a lap to go again bunched the field.

Wolfe again buzzed the turns one and two top lane trying to regain second but Dietrich prevailed at the finish for second.

Dewease’s margin of victory was 1.157 seconds. It was his second oval win of the season.

Buckwalter finished fourth in the feature with James McFadden crossing the line in fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to TJ Stutts, Anthony Macri, 17th starter Brandon Rahmer, Greg Hodnett and Alan Krimes.

Heats went to Stutts, Dewease and Buckwalter with Buckwalter winning the dash.

Stutts set fast time with a lap of 16.521 seconds.

The 20-lap 358 sprint main was under caution on lap four when rains hit the track, forcing postponement of the balance of the feature.

A date to complete the event will be announced in the near future.

Heats for the 358 sprints went to Cody Keller, Todd Rittenhouse Jr., and Dwight Leppo.

Keller was leading the feature over Rittenhouse when the rains began to fall.

Feature Finishes 5/11/18

410 sprints: 1. Lance Dewease, 2. Danny Dietrich, 3. Lucas Wolfe, 4. Steve Buckwalter, 5. James McFadden, 6. TJ Stutts, 7. Anthony Macri, 8. Brandon Rahmer, 9. Greg Hodnett, 10. Alan Krimes, 11.

HEIMBACH SCORES POPULAR VICTORY IN INAUGURAL LUCAS OIL AMERICAN SPRINT CAR SERIES ELEVEN OAKS FARM/MACH 1 CHASSIS BATTLE OF THE GROVES IN FRONT OF LARGE HOMETOWN CROWD

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Selinsgrove’s Blane Heimbach returned to the track where he got his sprint car racing career started as a teenager and scored a popular victory in the inaugural Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series Eleven Oaks Farm/Mach 1 Chassis Battle of the Groves Saturday night at Selinsgrove Speedway.

The win in the 25-lap 360 sprint car feature was worth $5,500 for Heimbach, including $1,500 in bonus money from Mach 1 Chassis in Mechanicsburg, at the wheel of the Creasy Signs/Goff Racing No. 12. It was the former three-time champion’s 37th career win in 358-360 sprint car competition at the track.

A stellar field of 41 360 sprint car drivers representing various parts of the United States and Canada as part of the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour and in conjunction with the United Racing Club was on hand and completed the open wheel portion of the show in just two hours with impending inclement weather.

The race was Night 2 of the Battle of the Groves weekend with Greg Hodnett of York taking the win in Friday’s race at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg.

The 20-lap limited late model and 15-lap pro stock features were postponed due to rain that hit the speedway about 9:30 p.m. Track officials will announce the rescheduled dates for those events.

Selinsgrove Speedway, celebrating its historic #WideOpen2018 season, returns to action at 7 p.m. Saturday, May 12, featuring 360 sprint cars, PASS 305 sprint cars, super late models, and pro stocks. Grandstand gates open at 5 p.m.

Front row starter Blane Heimbach took the early lead at the start of the sprint car feature using the high line around turns one and two. On the second circuit, fourth-place starter Trey Starks passed polesitter Seth Bergman for second and set his sights on Heimbach.

The race’s only caution flag unfurled on lap three when Eric Tomacek spun in turn two and nearly collected Jason Shultz.

When the race resumed, Heimbach stormed around the top of the race track as seventh-place starter Mark Smith began to show some speed and moved into the fourth position on lap five. Davie Franek, who started tenth, entered the top five on the eighth circuit.

At the halfway point, Heimbach began to encounter slower traffic. With 10 laps to race, Franek powered into fourth and quickly caught Bergman in a race for third. In the final five laps, Starks cleared the slower traffic and made a last-ditch effort to reel in Heimbach but came up 1.96 seconds short at the checkered flag. Franek, Smith and Bergman rounded out the top five.

Within minutes after the checkered flag fell, heavier rain began to fall on the speedway, forcing the postponed of the limited late model and pro stock features.

Sprint car heat races were won by Ryan Kissinger, Seth Bergman, Mark Smith, Blake Heimbach, and Mike Walter. Three Hoosier Tire qualifiers went to Robbie Stillwaggon, Roger Crockett, and Eddie Strada. Ryan Smith and J.J. Grasso won the pair of BMRS B-Mains. One point-based provisional was used by Skylar Gee, with the promoter’s provisional awarded to Chad Layton.

Danny Dietrich And Dylan Yoder Outrun Port Royal Rain Saturday 305 sprint and econo late mains to be made up June 30 and May 12

 5/4/18

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Danny Dietrich bested TJ Stutts to claim his fourth career Port Royal Speedway 410 sprint car win on Saturday night worth $3,600, but his first under the lights at the historic track as all three of his previous wins had taken place under the Labor Day sunshine.

In the 22-lap super late model main, Dylan Yoder of Selinsgrove overtook Tim Smith Jr. for his second victory of the season at the track, worth $2,000.

Stutts and Dietrich earned the front row for the start of the 25-lap sprint car main and the pair immediately did battle when action began.

Dietrich passed Stutts a total three times during the first two laps before he could make it stick coming out of turn four to complete the second lap.

The pair exchanged the top spot on the opening lap in the first and second turns and again in turns three and four before a low swoop through three and four on the second tour netted him control.

Dietrich then went to the cushion to begin putting daylight between himself and the rest of the field, entering traffic on lap 10.

While Dietrich held sway well out in front, the race was hectic for second through fifth between Stutts, Mike Wagner, Logan Wagner and Greg Hodnett.

Both Wagners raced hard for third for several laps, exchanging the spot several times with Stutts just in front before Logan stepped up to the plate and took third long enough to begin challenging for second during the final laps.

Aboard the Zemco No. 1, Logan Wagner passed Stutts for second on laps 19 and 21 only to see Stutts change lanes and reclaim the spot, where he would finish albeit 3.280 seconds behind Dietrich.

Logan Wagner earned his second podium finish of the season in third while Mike Wagner was fourth with Hodnett finishing fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Lucas Wolfe, Brock Zearfoss, Freddie Rahmer, Steve Buckwalter and James McFadden. Heats went to Stutts, Wolfe and Zearfoss.

The super late model main went non-stop as well with Tim Smith Jr. and Trent Brenneman starting on the front row of the main.

Dylan Yoder started fourth in the field and drove into second on the opening lap behind Smith.

Yoder encircled the track running higher than Smith and consistently cut down his advantage during the first half of the race before overtaking the Long Hollow driver at the halfway point.

And once in front, Yoder cruised to the victory by 2.353 seconds over Smith, Mike Lupfer, Jeff Rine and Brenneman.

Sixth through 10th went to Dan Stone, Brett Schadel, Jerry Bard, Dave Brouse Jr. and Gene Knaub.

Heats went to Stone and Brenneman.

The win was the 14th of Yoder’s career at Port Royal.

The 305 sprint main was underway with six laps completed when a persistent light rain got heavy enough to knock out the rest of the night’s action.

With Zach Newlin leading, the balance of the 305 sprint main will be completed when the circuit returns to the track on June 30.

Heats for 305s were taken by Kyle Smith, Jeff Miller, Ken Duke and Nick Sweigart with Cale Reigle taking the consolation.

The econo late model main that was stymied by the rains will be run next week, May 12 when the econos return for another full program of action.

Econo heats on Saturday went to Tim Fedder and Devin Hart.

Immediately upon the completion of qualifying on Saturday, the light rains began falling, forcing a delay in getting the 410 sprint main started however after some 30 minutes of the sprinkles the cars were put on the track and both the 410 sprint and super late model mains were able to be completed amid the continuing light showers.

FROM WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY

MAY 4, 2018

AARON OTT WINS 410 SPRINT CAR FEATURE AT WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY WHILE GREG HODNETT WINS TRACK DEBUT OF AMERCIAN SPRINT CAR SERIES (ASCS)

MECHANICSBURG, PA – Aaron Ott held off a hard-charging Danny Dietrich to score the 410 Sprint car win Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway.

Meanwhile, in the first ASCS race ever held at the famed speedway, it was five-time Grove track champion Greg Hodnett starting on the pole and leading all 25 laps in night number one of the “Battle of the Groves.”

In the 410 feature, Anthony Marci started second and drove into the lead over Chad Trout and Ott, who advanced from his sixth starting spot in the opening lap.

Dietrich was quickly moving forward on a tricky racing surface from his 10th starting spot. He was into the top five by the third lap. Another pass moved Dietrich to fourth as the leaders reached lapped traffic.

With Macri in control, Ott drove by Trout and into second with 10 laps completed. Macri’s lead was around a second as they reached the half-way point.

Macri scraped the fence as he tried to lap a car. Ott drove by and into the lead. Macri’s great run came to an end with 14 laps completed when he stopped in turn four with a flat right rear tire.

“I was reeling him in,” Ott said. “He was running around the top. He was in the predicament that I was at the end of the race. You just don’t know where to go. If you’re not searching and moving around, you’re going to lose these races because there are too many good cars and too many good drivers here.”

“He might have had a tire going down. I crowded him off two, but I figured that was my only chance. I don’t know if he got sucked into the fence and that ultimately cut his tire. He’s been doing a tremendous job. We had a new car tonight and changed some things and I think we’re on to something. Circumstances certainly played in our favor.”

Ott controlled the restart. Dietrich blasted under Trout as they raced into turn three taking second with seven laps to go.

Ott reached slower cars with a few laps left allowing Dietrich to close. Dietrich drove as hard as he could trying the outside line, but fell a few car lengths short at the checkers.

“I could hear him out there,” Ott said. “I was just biding my time. I wasn’t really sure where to go in three and four. I was pretty good in one and two. At that point, it was my race to lose. Everybody knows Danny is going to do everything he can to put a show on and get the job done.”

Ott, of East Berlin, earned $4,000 for his eighth career Grove win.

Alan Krimes, Trout, and Rodney Westhafer completed the top five. James McFadden, Greg Hodnett, TJ Stutts, Lucas Wolfe and Brian Montieth rounded out the top 10.

Trout, Macri and Logan Wagner won the heat races.

In the ASCS feature, Greg Hodnett scored the most passing points during qualifying earning himself the pole.

He drove into the lead over Mark Smith, Steve Buckwalter, defending series champion Sam Hafertepe Jr. and Wayne Johnson.

Hodnett had a comfortable 1.210 second lead when he reached slower traffic with 10 laps completed. A caution flag then slowed the field.

Buckwalter briefly challenged Smith for second following the restart, but didn’t make the pass as Hodnett pulled away again.

A caution slowed the field again with 12 completed.

Hodnett once again controlled the restart and drove away. Lucas Wolfe battled Johnson for the fifth spot and then Chad Layton moved in on Wolfe.

Hodnett stretched his lead to 1.709 seconds as Wolfe made the pass of Johnson. Wolfe’s run came to an end when the inside wing panel of his sprinter came off.

Hodnett led the final laps scoring the win by 1.082.

“Anytime we can win is monumental at this point,” Hodnett said. “We’ve been struggling. These guys are the best in the business in this type of racing. We got lucky enough to start up front and take advantage of it. Everything went our way.”

Hodnett, of Spring Grove, earned $4,000 as well for his 72nd career Grove win.

Smith, Buckwalter, Hafertepe Jr., and Johnson completed the top five. Chad Layton, Jason Barney, Trey Starks, Johnny Herrera and Davie Franek rounded out the top 10.

Johnny Herrera, Mark Smith, Jason Barney, Ryan Smith and Chuck Hebing won the ASCS heat races. After the heat races, the top 30 in passing points moved on to three qualifiers. Defending series champion Sam Hafertepe Jr., Lucas Wolfe and Greg Hodnett won the qualifiers. Hebing and Seth Bergman won the B-mains.

SHULTZ HOLDS OFF FRANEK’S LATE-RACE CHARGE FOR 360 SPRINT WIN; BERNHEISEL SCORES LATE MODEL SEASON OPENER; MITCH BECOMES THREE-TIME PRO STOCK 20 CHAMPION; ZOOK MAKES LAST-LAP PASS FOR ROADRUNNER CHECKERS

SELINSGROVE, Pa. -- Selinsgrove Speedway officials waited out a few afternoon rain showers before race cars took to the smooth and fast racing surface Saturday evening and set several new track records.

Jason Shultz of Carlisle drove to his first win of the season in the 25-lap 360 sprint car feature, holding off a late-race charge by opening night winner Davie Franek of Wantage, N.J. The $2,000 victory was Shultz’s 16th career at Selinsgrove at the wheel of the Horstcraft Millworks No. 29.

In qualifying, Cody Keller of Selinsgrove set a new eight-lap track record for 360 sprint cars in 2:15.76.

Bryan Bernheisel of Jonestown shared the front row with his father Jim Bernheisel for the start of the 25-lap season opener for super late models and drove to his fifth career Selinsgrove victory worth $2,000.

Brad Mitch of McClure made his first start of the season in the pro stock division’s biggest race and became the third driver to win three A&A Auto Stores Pro Stock 20s. Mitch collected $1,000 for the win in the 17th annual race. Shaun Lawton of Bloomsburg set a new one-lap track record of 23.455.

Ryan Zook of Mifflintown made a thrilling last lap pass coming off the fourth turn for his second win of the season in the 12-lap roadrunner race.

Selinsgrove Speedway will present the highly-anticipated first-ever appearance by the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series (ASCS) National Tour at 7 p.m. Saturday, May 5, presented by Eleven Oaks Farm and Mach 1 Chassis. The race will pay $5,000 to win and $400 to start. The limited late models and pro stocks will share the racing card with the 360 sprint cars. Track gates will open at 4 p.m

Polesitter Jason Shultz bolted into the lead at the start of the 360 sprint car main event. Shultz had third-place starter Ryan Kissinger chasing him with second-place starter Kevin Nagy in the third position.

On the eighth lap, a three-car tangle involving Larry Kelleher, Mallie Shuster, and Chad Layton in turn four brought out the caution flag and regrouped the field for a lap nine restart. When the race resumed, Shultz held a commanding lead over Kissinger, third-place starter and defending champion Davie Franek, and sixth-place starter Curt Michael.

On the 15th circuit, Franek made an inside pass in turn one by Kissinger for the second position and set his sights on Shultz. In the final five laps, the leaders had to navigate their way through traffic, allowing Franek to gain real estate on Shultz.

Franek made a last-ditch effort to steal the lead and win away from Shultz on the final lap but came up just .49 of a second short at the finish line. Shultz was victorious over Franek, Kissinger, Michael, and fifth-place starter Derek Locke.

Jim Bernheisel started on the pole with his son Bryan Bernheisel sharing the front row for the drop of the green flag in the super late model opener. B. Bernheisel beat out of his father racing into the first turn for the early race lead. J. Bernheisel chased his son around the sweeping half-mile oval while defending champion and fourth-place starter Hayes Mattern raced in the third spot.

On the fifth circuit, a close battle for the third spot unfolded between Mattern and sixth-place starter Gene Knaub. The caution flag unfurled on lap six when Dan Green’s car spun in turn four. Green’s car later caught fire and rolled to a stop in the same turn on lap 23. He escaped injury.

At the halfway point, the Bernheisels raced in the first and second spots while Mattern, Knaub, and third-place starter Randy Christine held down top five positions. Mattern made several attempts to get around J. Bernheisel for second to no avail.

In the closing laps, Knaub showed some speed and advanced to second in heavy lapped traffic. At the checkered flag, B. Bernheisel was victorious by just .98 of a second over Knaub. J. Bernheisel, Mattern, and seventh-place starter Brett Schadel completed the top five.

Second-place starter Brad Mitch drove into the lead at the start of the Pro Stock 20 and never looked back. Mitch was trailed by fast qualifier Shaun Lawton for all 20 laps while third-place starter Brandon Moser held the position for the duration of the event.

The battle on the track was for the fourth and fifth positions between fourth-place starter Kyle Bachman and sixth-place starter AJ Hoffman. In the final two laps, Moser closed in on Lawton in a race for second while Mitch drove to a 1.2-second margin of victory.

Lawton finished second with Moser, Hoffman, and eighth-place starter Cory Long rounding out the top five.

The night-cap roadrunner feature produced the most exciting finish. Second-place starter Smith Cope powered into the lead and was closely chased by third-place starter Ryan Zook. At the halfway point, a duel for the lead unfolded between Smith and Zook as well as for the third position between fifth-place starter Bob Bussey and eighth-place starter Will Brunson.

On the final lap, Cope, who was seeking his first career win, slipped high in turn four and allowed Zook to make a dive to the bottom of the race track. Coming down the homestretch to the checkered flag, Zook edged out Cope by just .26 of a second for the win.

Cope settled for second followed by Bussey, Brunson, and sixth-place starter and one-time winner Keith Bissinger.

PRS 2018 – 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

Jason Covert Bests ULMS Late Model Field Of 42 For Port Royal $3,000 Win

Greg Hodnett gets first sprints wins of season, Yoder and Powell also win stock cars

 4/28/18

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Greg Hodnett won his first sprint car feature of the season at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night, taking the $3,600 win after getting by Rick Lafferty for the lead.

In the 30 lap ULMS Chiller Thriller for super late models, Jason Covert drove by Matt Cosner for the lead and $3,000 victory.

Andrew Yoder scored the econo late model main and Bill Powell took the xtreme stock feature.

Lafferty and fellow front row starter Blane Heimbach drag raced each other through the first and second turns when the green came out in the 25-lap 410 sprint car main with Lafferty surging ahead as the pair hit turn three.

The first caution flag of the race unfurled on the fifth lap finding sixth starter Hodnett racing fourth for the restart.

Hodnett rallied around Mike Wagner for third at the new green and then went to work on Heimbach, whom he motored by on the eighth tour just before another yellow flag regrouped the field.

Hodnett blasted around Lafferty on the restart to take the lead before beginning to pull away.

Lafferty was fighting a flattening nose wing prior to losing the lead and the problem persisted later in the race as Heimbach zeroed in for second as Hodnett began working the rear of the field on the 17th lap.

Heimbach took second from Lafferty with seven tours to go but was unable to run down Hodnett, who cruised to his 51st career oval win by 4.490 seconds.

Logan Wagner, who fell backward from his third starting spot when action began, climbed back into contention during the event, taking third from Lafferty with six laps left.

Wagner was in the process of running down Heimbach at the finish.

Mike Wagner finished fourth followed by Dylan Cisney.

Sixth through 10th went to Lafferty, TJ Stutts, AJ Flick, Steve Buckwalter and Tyler Reeser.

Heats went to Hodnett and Lafferty.

A field of 42 super late models competed in the 30-lap Chiller Thriller for the United Late Model Series drivers and the main event saw no less than three leaders.

Kenny Moreland and Boom Briggs started the feature on the front row with Briggs taking the lead over Moreland and Matt Cosner on the start.

A fast caution with only one lap completed bunched the field and Cosner motored by Moreland for second on the restart.

Another restart on lap seven saw Cosner battling Briggs for control with Cosner nipping him for the lead at the line as the ninth loop was scored just before Moreland spun his mount. Fifth starter Jason Covert lined up third for the restart and quickly dispatched Briggs for the runner up position before immediately challenging Cosner for the lead.

A swoop across the low side of the first and second turns netted Covert command on the 11th tour, leaving Briggs and Cosner to duke it out for second, which they did for several laps around the halfway point.

Briggs passed Cosner for the spot on more than one occasion only to see Cosner regain the position as now Jeff Rine entered the picture along with Mike Maresca.

Both Rine and Maresca came storming to the front, racing hard together as they got by Cosner with 10 laps go to.

The pair leaned on each other repeatedly for second while still keeping their mounts under control with Rine finally securing the spot with three laps to go.

It was however Covert’s event to win and the victory was his third at the historic Port Royal over, coming by 1.625 seconds over Rine.

Maresca earned a hard fought third followed by Max Blair and Cosner.

Sixth through 10th went to Andy Haus, Mike Lupfer, Kyle Lee, Briggs and Dave Hess.

Heats went to Maresca, Moreland, Rine and Covert with twin consolations going to Hess and Trent Brenneman.

Fast time was set by Rine with a lap of 18.213 seconds.

Andrew Yoder wired the field from the pole to win the 18-lap econo late model feature over Derick Garman.

Garman lost second to Devin Hart on lap 13 but came battling back to reclaim the spot at the finish as a wild three-car race for second unfolded between he, Hart and Jeremy Ohl.

Yoder’s advantage at the line was 1.357 seconds.

Hart ended up third with Ohl fourth and Tim Fedder finishing fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Eric Irvin, Kenny Yoder, Jared Fulkroad, JR Toner and Tim Krape.

Twin heats went to Toner and Yoder.

Bill Powell led all 15 laps of the xtreme stock main to win his second race of the season.

Kevin Imes was second followed by Walt Peters, Josh Bender and Patrick McClane.

Montieth Beaths Brandon Rahmer In Non-Stop Williams Grove Sprints Nouse gets second of season in 358s

4/27/18

Mechanicsburg – “The Edge,” Brian Montieth returned to Williams Grove Speedway victory lane on Friday night for the first time since August of 2016, scoring a popular win in the 410 sprint car main.

In the 358 sprint feature, Kevin Nouse pounced on a restart with two laps to go to steal the win from Jeff Halligan.

The 25-lap 410 sprint main went non-stop from start to finish, turning in a time of 7:45.367 and the entire event proved to be an exciting one.

Steve Buckwalter started on the pole of the feature flanked by Brandon Rahmer with Montieth lining up third and Buckwalter took the lead over a close Rahmer on the start.

From the get-go, Rahmer was forced to deal with a challenging Montieth as Buckwalter set the pace.

Montieth had Rahmer passed twice during the third and fourth laps only to watch as Rahmer drove back by him to reclaim the second spot.

The trio of leaders entered the backmarkers on the eighth lap with Rahmer having gotten away from Montieth just enough to be challenging Buckwalter for control with 10 in the books.

But just that quick, Montieth again caught up to Rahmer and blasted to his inside for second on the 11th tour.

Buckwalter was pounding the high cushion as the leader with both Rahmer and Montieth bearing down for control, darting in and out of traffic when one simple bobble on the cushion cost him the lead on the 13th tour.

As Buckwalter set the car into the third corner, it pitched sideways off of the cushion and came down across the track as Montieth zoomed by along with Rahmer who ended up just squeezing between Buckwalter’s faltering mount and the inside rail in the fourth turn.

Montieth then went to work threading his way around the big half-mile with Rahmer in tow.

At the end, Montieth took the 24th win of his career at the track by 3.755 seconds over Rahmer with Buckwalter, Freddie Rahmer and TJ Stutts completing the top five.

Sixth through 10th went to Bill Balog, Anthony Macri, Lucas Wolfe, Greg Hodnett and Aaron Ott.

Heats went to Buckwalter, Brandon Rahmer and Montieth.

Jeff Halligan took the lead from Chris Frank on the second lap of the 20-lap 358 sprint main and had point leaeder Kevin Nouse on his trail in second on the fourth circuit.

Nouse and Halligan then raced the next 14 laps challenging each other for the win as Knouse pulled even with Halligan to his inside more than once only to watch as Halligan clawed back into control.

Halligan changed lanes at will around the oval as he fought to hold onto the lead, keeping Nouse guessing in every turn while also working the backmarkers.

Through it all, Halligan was able to maintain his advantage over Nouse until a lone caution flag unfurled with two laps go to and that proved to be Halligan’s undoing.

The pacesetter set a slow gait back to the green flag and that allowed Nouse to climb all over him for the lead as the pair entered the first corner.

Nouse pushed his No. 11 to Halligan’s inside as the pair blasted into the turn and then drove off for the victory, his second of the season at the track and the 19th of is oval career.

Frank was third followed by Brett Wanner and Todd Rittenhouse Jr.

Sixth through 10th went to Scott Fisher, Matt Findley, Rich Eichelberger, Brie Hershey and Dwight Leppo.

Heats went to Frank, Gregg Foster and Findley.

SMITH HOLDS OFF RAHMER IN TILLEY CLASSIC 410 SPRINT CAR THRILLER
BACHMAN & BISSINGER TAKE FIRST STOCK CAR WINS OF SEASON

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Mark Smith of Sunbury held off the hard-charging Freddie Rahmer of Salfordville for the victory in Sunday night’s suspenseful 30-lap Ray Tilley Classic for 410 sprint cars at Selinsgrove Speedway.

For Smith, driving the Mach 1 Chassis/Optilumen No. 1M, the $4,088 win was his first of the season in central Pennsylvania and fourth overall. He was the fifth different driver to receive the custom crystal cup trophy presented by the Tilley family for winning the tribute race honoring the memory of the speedway’s former four-time sprint car champion.

The win was Smith’s first in a 410 sprint car at Selinsgrove since 2003. He holds the distinction as the only driver to have won in four different classes of open wheel cars at the track, including super sportsman, 358 sprint cars, 360 sprint cars, and 410 sprint cars.

Greg Hodnett of York was the night’s Fast Tees Fast Qualifier with a lap time of 15.849 (120 MPH average), nearly eclipsing Daryn Pittman’s 2011 track record of 15.810, on the track’s new red clay surface.

Kyle Bachman of Selinsgrove inherited the lead from opening night winner Tommy Slanker of York and went on to win the 15-lap pro stock main event.

Keith Bissinger of Orangeville scored his first win of the season in the 12-lap roadrunner feature by holding off last week’s winner Ryan Zook of Mifflintown.

Selinsgrove Speedway is back in action at 7 p.m. this Saturday, April 28, with the 360 sprint cars, super late models, pro stocks in the A&A Auto Stores Pro Stock 20, and roadrunners. Pit gates will open at 4 p.m. with grandstand gates at 5 p.m.

Polesitter Gerard McIntyre pulled into the lead at the start of the 410 sprint car feature and was chased by second-place starter TJ Stutts until third-place starter Steve Buckwalter advanced to second entering turn three.

On lap four, Buckwalter’s car blew a tire on the frontstretch, causing the Royersford driver to get sideways in turn one. When his car rolled over it was struck by Jason Shultz’s sprinter. Both drivers escaped injury.

When the race resumed on lap five, McIntyre held a solid lead over fifth-place starter Mark Smith, Stutts, and fourth-place starter Freddie Rahmer. The race was slowed again on lap 10 when Blane Heimbach’s car rolled to a stop on the backstretch with a flat tire. Heimbach rejoined the field.

Smith made the winning pass using the inside lane entering turn one on the lap 11 restart. A lap later Rahmer moved into second after getting by McIntyre in turn 3. On the 14th lap, Heimbach’s car stopped on the frontstretch with mechanical issues.

At the halfway point, an intense multi-car battle unfolded for positions in the top five between Stutts, Hodnett, McIntyre, and 12th place starter Brock Zearfoss. When Zearfoss drove to the outside in turns three and four his car got sideways and struck the outside guardrail, ending his drive to the front and chances of a three-win weekend.

The final 10 laps saw Smith set the pace in front of Rahmer, Stutts, Hodnett and ninth-place starter Lucas Wolfe. In the closing laps, the leaders began to encounter slower traffic, allowing Rahmer to reel in Smith. At the checkered flag, Smith was victorious by .51 of a second in a close finish with Rahmer. Stutts, Hodnett, and Wolfe rounded out the top five.

In the season’s second pro stock feature, polesitter Tommy Slanker powered into the early lead over fourth-place starter AJ Hoffman and second-place starter Brandon Moser. On the foreboding 13th circuit, misfortune struck Slanker’s racer and allowed by fourth-place starter AJ Hoffman to lead the next lap.

With two laps remaining, third-place starter Kyle Bachman made an inside pass by Hoffman on the frontstretch to take the lead. Bachman went on to win the race by just .57 of a second over Moser, Slanker, Andrew Shoop, and Shaun Lawton.

Defending co-champion Will Brunson started on the pole in the roadrunner feature and held off co-champion and sixth-place starter Keith Bissinger for the first five laps before Bissinger took command of the field during a three-wide race in turn two on the sixth circuit.

While Bissinger set the pace, third-place starter Ryan Zook and Brunson remained in striking distance. At the checkered flag, Bissinger was victorious by the slimmest of margins over Zook, Brunson, Smith Cope, and Jake Jones.

Zearfoss Outguns Hodnett To Win Port Royal Sprints, Wolfe Wins URC Nail Biter Kyle Smith claims 305s

 4/21/18

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Over 90 total sprint cars filled the pits at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night for Open Wheel Madness featuring action for the 410 sprints, URC Sprints and the 305 sprint cars.

Winners on the night were Brock Zearfoss in 410s, Kyle Smith in 305s and Lucas Wolfe in URC for what was a photo finish.

Greg Hodnett and Brock Zearfoss earned the front row for the 25-lap 410 sprint car main event and when the green flag came out, the pair immediately battled for control in the first corner.

Hodnett entered high in the turn but Zearfoss entered even higher and although Hodnett beat him to the center of the corner, Zearfoss beat him off of the turn with a sweep around the outside.

Zearfoss had Hodnett dogging as he entered the rear of the field on the seventh tour and as he worked traffic, slowly but surely Hodnett seemed to be closing the leader’s advantage.

With eight laps to go, Hodnett had caught Zearfoss for the lead as a three-car battle for third raged between Steve Buckwalter, Logan Wagner and Lucas Wolfe.

And with five to go, the race for third had caught the race for the lead and the finish was setting up to be a wild one when the only caution of the race came out with just three laps to go.

The restart proved anticlimactic as Zearfoss jetted away to pick up the $4,000 win over Hodnett by 1.705 seconds.

However the race for third battled to the finish with both Wolfe and Wagner getting by Buckwalter for the spot while Dylan Cisney raced home fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Buckwalter, TJ Stutts, Gerard McIntyre Jr., Mike Wagner and Anthony Macri.

Heats went to Cisney, Buckwalter and McIntyre Jr.

The 25-lap URC main saw polesitter Lucas Wolfe blast into the lead over Josh Weller when action began in what would turn out to be a non-stop affair that came right down to the wire.

Trey Starks started third in the field and got by Weller for second on the third circuit before giving chase of leader Wolfe.

Starks seemed stagnant for a while but eventually he was able to narrow the leader’s advantage as Wolfe worked through heavy lapped traffic.

Meanwhile, fifth starter Mark Smith had driven up to third with 10 laps to go as he began to set a blistering pace around the oval.

It took six laps to do it but Smith caught Starks for second and drove by for the spot with four to go before driving down the leader.

And over the final two laps, Smith and Wolfe exchanged the lead at least six times with Wolfe getting the better of Smith every time to reclaim control.

Smith’s last effort came in the third and fourth turns as the pair headed for the checkers as he blasted across the middle of the turns and put himself at the front, taking Wolfe’s line away.

At that point, Wolfe turned the car off the cushion and raced up the inside of Smith as the pair bore down on the finish line in a drag race to the finish.

The finish was so close that most in attendance had to wait for a check of the electronic timing system to determine who had actually taken the victory.

In the end, Wolfe scored the victory by .004 seconds, which was a margin that was nearly impossible to detect with the naked eye.

Trey Starks settled for third followed by Greg Hodnett and Brock Zearfoss.

Sixth through 10th went to Josh Weller, Ryan Kissinger, Jason Shultz, Eric Parker and Bill Balog.

Heats went to Zearfoss, Starks and Smith with the consolation race going to Derek Locke.

Dylan Shatzer led the first four laps of the 18-lap 305 sprint main before Christian Rumsey drove by for the lead.

A restart with seven laps completed placed fifth starter Kyle Smith on Rumsey’s tail and Smith took the lead from Rumsey in the first and second turns when action resumed.

Jeff Miller motored into second with two laps to go but ran out of time to challenge Smith for the win.

Darren Miller was third followed by Rumsey and Shatzer.

Sixth through 10th went to Zach Newlin, Ken Duke Jr., Jonathan Jones, Drew Ritchey and Kassidy Kreitz.

Heats were taken by Shatzer, Darren Miller, Jeff Miller and Smith with Stephanie Dodson taking the consolation race.

DANNY DIETRICH RETURNS HOME FOR SECOND WIN OF THE SEASON AT THE FABULOUS LINCOLN SPEEDWAY;

Dave Brown registers first career 358 sprint win, Shaun Jones wires the field in non-stop 358 late model feature

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 4/21/2018 – “It’s good to be back home here at Lincoln.”

So said Gettysburg’s Danny Dietrich after wiring the field, leading all 25 laps en route to his second win of the season at the Fabulous Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

Dietrich started outside the polesitter Glenndon Forsythe for the start of the 25-lap $3,500-to-win 410 Sprint feature, grabbed the lead at the drop of the green, and withstood the challenges of last week’s feature winner Freddie Rahmer for 24 laps to pick up his 40th career win at the Pigeon Hills oval, placing him in a tie with Lance Dewease for eighth all time.

“It feels good to come down here and get a win,” said Dietrich following his traditional wing-dance in victory lane. “We’ve been having trouble with getting to tracks that are (racey) to race on, and Lincoln’s always good…that’s why we decided to come here tonight.”

“It’s close to home,” Dietrich quickly added. “We’re kind of tired of the hour and a half drive in a sense and it’s gets kind of boring and lonely on the way home when you don’t run good.”

A caution on the third lap for a Zach Eucalano spin put third-starting Rahmer and fourth-starting Alan Krimes right behind him.

“The format they got is rewarding, said Dietrich on Lincoln’s qualifying format that places emphasis on the heat races as they line-up the feature field “heads-up from there finish. “I think it’s putting on a hell-of-a show for the fans in the heat races…I talked to Alan last year about doing this format and I think it pays off.”

“I was a little worried the first couple of laps in the heat race,” Dietrich reflected. “I wasn’t sure I could find a hole to get too but once everybody got single file I could pick and choose.”

Dietrich pulled away with a clear track in front of him and entered lapped traffic by the seventh lap.

Seventh-starting Brian Montieth had started to work his way to the front and passed Krimes for third in lapped traffic on the ninth lap.

“You’ve got to race pretty good through the feature to hold off the other guys that are fast up front,” said Dietrich. “I think it puts on a good show for everybody…that’s what is great about this format.”

“You get rewarded. But everybody is getting rewarded.”

At the halfway mark Tyler Ross encountered problems exiting the fourth turn, eventually flipping in the second turn to bring out the red flag with 12 laps officially in the books. Ross was okay.

So with 13 laps to go, Dietrich once again had a clear track ahead of him, with Rahmer, Montieth, and Krimes right behind.

And just as before, Dietrich controlled the restart and put daylight between himself and the field as they entered lapped traffic again with eight laps to go.

Montieth and Rahmer began battling for the runner-up spot with two laps to go, giving Dietrich some breathing room the final laps and took the checkered .93-seconds ahead for his third overall win of 2018.

“I like the time trial shows,” said Dietrich on his plans moving forward in 2018. “I like the shows that are rewarding for the heat races…we’re going to bounce around like today where we changed where we were going, this is going to happen a little more often.

“We’re going to Mansfield (OH) next weekend, but if Friday don’t go well, we’ll probably see you again next Saturday. We hope to be there for the big dance on Saturday (Mansfield Motor Speedway for the $100,000-to-win Sprint Car World Championship).

Rahmer held off Montieth in the battle for second, with Montieth settling for third, Krimes fourth, and ninth-starting Jim Siegel fifth.

Completing the top-10 were Forsythe, Chris Knopp, Tim Glatfelter, Scott Fisher, and 13th-starting Brandon Rahmer.

Heats for the 22 410 Sprinters on hand were won by Forsythe, Dietrich, and Rahmer.

Former Mid-Atlantic 305 Sprint Series standout, Dave Brown of Aston (PA) picked up his first career 358 Sprint Series win at Lincoln.

Brown followed polesitter Dalton Dietrich from his outside front row starting spot at the drop of the green of the 20-lap feature.

Brown slipped by Dietrich for the lead on the seventh lap and then held off Friday night Trail-Way Speedway winner Cody Fletcher in a one-lap dash to the checkered to register his inaugural 358 sprint victory.

Dietrich settled for third, Trey Hivner fourth, and Chase Dietz fifth.

Rounding out the top-10 were Troy Wagaman Jr., Jeff Halligan, Brie Hershey, Kody Hartlaub, and Kenny Kuhn.

Heats for the 22 358 Sprinters on hand were won by Halligan, Dylan Norris, and Brent Shearer.

Shaun Jones grabbed the lead from his pole starting position at the drop of the green of the 358 Late Model feature and drove non-stop for 5 minutes 57.58 seconds to take the checkered for the 2.47-second win over third starting Randy Christine, Jr.

Jones literally held off Christine and fifth-starting Wes Bonebrake the entire 20-lap distance.

Ninth-starting Gene Knaub and seventh-starting Devin Frey rounded out the top-five.

Completing the top-10 were 11th-starting Alan Sagi, Craig Wagaman, Bobby Beard, Bruce Kane, and Bernie Beard.

Heats for the 21 358 Late Models on hand were won by Bonebrake, Christine, and Sagi.

Lincoln Speedway is back in action next Saturday night, April 28st, with the running of the 15TH ANNUAL WELDON STERNER MEMORIAL for 410 Sprints (33 Laps/$6,900 to win), plus 358 Sprints and Street Stocks.

Zearfoss And Dietz Win Williams Grove Sprint Mains

4/20/18

Mechanicsburg – Brock Zearfoss of Jonestown pickeup his first win of the season Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway, claiming $3,600 in the 410 sprint car feature while Chase Dietz picked up the win in the 358 sprint main event.

Invader Bill Balog of Hartford, Wisconsin, earned the pole for the 25-lap main for the 410 sprints and zoomed into command when action began.

Balog proved untouchable as the early leader, holding off Rick Lafferty and Zearfoss while running the cushion.

Sixth starter Zearfoss would take second from Lafferty on the sixth tour and begin his pursuit of the leader.

While Balog pounded the cushion, Zearfoss experimented with both the low side and the high groove as he ran down the leader.

However Balog was up to the challenge under the long green flag run that lasted until lap 20, keeping Zearfoss at bay and preventing him from getting just close enough to take a jab at the lead while holding an advantage of just over or under a half second, dependent on the lap.

But when the caution flag unfurled with five laps to go, the advantage was gone adn the restart proved to be Balog’s undoing.

When action resumed, Zearfoss threw down a deep dive into the first turn as Balog set the car in on the cushion and with that, the race had a new pacesetter.

Zearfoss came up off of the second corner with the lead after the sweeping move before driving to an advantage of 3.690 seconds at the checkers.

“The main this was to go where he wasn’t,” Zearfoss said of his strategy for the lap 20 restart.

“I didn’t know if I was gonna’ get him if we didn’t have that caution.”

“I kinda’ searched the bottom there at the beginning and knew I had something,” he said.

The win was the fourth of Zearfoss’ career at Williams Grove Speedway.

After losing the lead, Balog lost second to Freddie Rahmer on the 22nd lap when Rahmer streaked underneath but Balog returned the favor in the first corner to reclaim the spot for the finish.

Rahmer was third followed by Lafferty and Brian Montieth.

Sixth through 10th went to Lucas Wolfe, Greg Hodnett, Danny Dietrich, TJ Stutts and Troy Fraker.

Twin heats went to Balog and Lafferty.

Dietz led all 20 laps of the 358 sprint main after starting on the pole.

But that’s not to say it was an easy win.

After starting fourth in the field, one time winner Kevin Nouse used a restart with two laps to go to blast from third to challenge for the win.

After wafting around Rich Eichelberger for second on the restart he immediately closed on Dietz as the pair shot down the backchute.

Nouse was able to shoot to Dietz’s inside as the pair raced through the third corner headed for the white flag but Dietz held firm on the outside and clawed his way back into control at the line.

Nouse set Dietz up for another identical move on the final lap but this time Dietz was ready and instead of entering on the cushion, Dietz set the car into the turn a lane lower, fowling up Nouse’s entry and preserving his sixth career win at the oval.

Following Dietz and Nouse across the line was Eichelberger, Jeff Halligan and Matt Findlay.

Sixth rhrough 10th went to Brett Wanner, Glenndon Forsythe, Todd Rittenhouse Jr., Nyle Berkes and Brie Hershey.

Twin heats went to Dietz and Eichelberger.

Dewease Nabs Port Royal Kauffman Classic Over All Stars, Rine Starts Moon Shine Late Model Series With Win

 4/14/18

PORT ROYAL, Pa. –Lance Dewease of Fayetteville made it back-to-back victories in the Port Royal Speedway Keith Kauffman Classic for the All Stars Sprint Cars on Saturday night, scoring $5,000 for the victory over the touring invaders.

For Dewease, at the wheel of the Kreitz No. 69K, the win marked his fifth in a row in All Star competition at Port Royal, dating back to September 10, 2016.

The win was also the 37th of Dewease’s career while racing with the All Stars as a series, tying him with Steve Kinser, Doug Wolfgang and Danny Lasoski on the All Stars all time win list.

Also at the track on Saturday night, in the 25-lap 2018 kickoff of the Moon Shine Camo Rt. 35 Dirt Late Model Challenge Series, Jeff Rine of Danville dominated to pick up the $2,200 payday which was his second of the year at the track.

The initial start of the 30-lap Kauffman Classic for sprint cars was red flagged when Dave Blaney spun in the third turn, collecting TJ Stutts, who flipped.

Prior to the stoppage, polesitter Steve Buckwalter had taken the lead.

On the ensuring restart, second starter Anthony Macri got the best of Buckwalter and took control.

Macri entered the backmarkers on the seventh tour with Buckwalter, Aaron Reutzel, Greg Hodnett and Dewease in tow.

Reutzel was blasting the top around the speedway and motored into second with nine away at the same time as Dewease began advancing, taking fourth from Hodnett on the 10th circuit.

A lap later and Dewease was up to third while Reutzel worked on Macri for the lead, which he took by .02 seconds at the line as the pair drag raced to the line on the 12th lap.

And then just as Dewease was along side Macri for second working on lap 13, Trey Starks came up with a flat right rear tire in the first turn, causing the caution flag to unfurl.

Reutzel blasted away on the restart as Dewease again worked on Macri for second but before he could get the spot, Dave Blaney spun in the first turn, forcing another yellow flag that turned red for refueling.

The stoppage and a chance to work on the car was all that Dewease’s team needed as he motored by Macri for second at the new green before giving chase of Reutzel.

Around the high side went Reutzel lap after lap as Dewease chugged the low line and worked his way up on to the leader with 10 laps to go.

With nine laps remaining, Dewease blasted the low line into the third turn and came up off of the fourth corner with the lead.

However Reutzel stayed close enough as the leaders worked traffic to be sure and keep Dewease honest to the finish.

The winning margin was 2.149 seconds for Dewease.

“If it wasn’t for the red, Aaron was gonna’ win that race,” said Dewease in victory lane.

“He was the best car at that point.”

Macri rode home third followed by Buckwalter and Hodnett.

Sixth through 10th went to Mike Wagner, Dylan Cisney, 20th starter Ryan Smith, Daryn Pittman and Ryan Taylor.

Heats for the 47 cars in action went to Hodnett, Cale Conley, Cisney, Wagner and Starks.

Twin dashes went to Buckwalter and Macri with Cole Duncan taking the C Main and Logan Wagner taking the B Main.

Fast time was set by Reutzel with a lap of 16.473 seconds.

Rine drew the second spot to start the Moon Shine Camo Rt. 35 Series main event and would lead all 25 laps of the event.

Only one caution flag, on the 10th tour, slowed his pace when Meade Hahn spun in the first corner.

Polesitter Gene Knaub chased Rine until lap 12 when Andy Haus got by for second.

Haus was unable to close on the leader however as Rine went on to post a 3.978 second victory.

The win was his 20th at the oval, tying him with Jim Nave on the oval all time late model win list.

Knaub rode home third followed by Dylan Yoder and Alex Feree.

Sixth through 10th went to Jason Schmidt, Colton Flinner, Matt Lux, Trent Brenneman and Mike Lupfer.

Heats went to Feree, Brenneman and Rine with 29 cars in action.

Steve Wilbur tops field in 358 sprint action while Korey Sites rolls to street stock win

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 4/14/2018 – Freddie Rahmer was the class of the field Saturday night as he chased down 2-time 2018 winner Brian Montieth and held off the six-time defending 2017 track champ en route to his first win of 2018 in the 25-lap 410 sprint feature at the Fabulous Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

“I’ll tell ya, this here really builds a lot of confidence to get this (win) out of the way,” said Rahmer on his first win of 2018 in victory lane. “I haven’t been doing a good job, and we’ve been sneaking in a few good runs”

“I was really good at the beginning of the race and I was good down here (turns 1 and 2),” said Rahmer on holding off Montieth in the closing laps. “But I knew down here (turns 3 and 4) I wasn’t getting through 3 so good so I knew Brian (Montieth) was going to be there…we still won so it don’t matter!”

Polesitter Dan Shetler grabbed the lead at the drop of the green with outside front row starter Montieth right behind. Then just as they got to lapped traffic on the ninth lap Montieth made his move to get around Shetler for the lead.

But right behind him was seventh-starting Freddie Rahmer who was quickly moving to the front and joined Montieth in getting around Shetler the same lap to move into second.

It was clear Rahmer was not content to follow Montieth. He drove around the Phoenixville racer the very next lap and had the lead with only nine laps in the books.

A new qualifying format this season is in effect that has featuring starting positions determined directly from the finish of their respective heat races. The “heads-up” feature line up put Montieth on the front row (2nd) after winning the second heat while Rahmer was relegated to inside the fourth row (7th) due to his second place finish in the first heat.

“With this new (qualifying) format, one position in a heat race could mean the difference between winning or running fifth,” said Rahmer on having to chase down Montieth in the feature. “With me starting seventh, and (Montieth) starting second I wasn’t going to give up…we had a good race car with a great start and it went nice.”

After a less than stellar start to the 2018 racing season, Rahmer was strong and was in the lead. But he now had to hold off Montieth for 16 laps.

It was quickly apparent that Rahmer had found his stride and was slowly pulling away in lapped traffic. But it wasn’t going to be that easy for Rahmer.

A TJ DeHaven flip in the first and second turns of the 15th lap put Montieth and fifth-starting Cory Haas on Rahmer’s bumper for the restart with a clear track ahead.

Rahmer weathered the initial challenges on the restart, only to have the red flag wave again, this time on the 18th lap for Dwayne Gutshall who flipped in turn 2. Now two-time track champ Alan Krimes joined the battle as he was charging up to the front from his eighth starting position and was in fourth place behind Montieth and Haas.

But Rahmer didn’t miss a beat on the restart and again pulled away. An ensuing battle between Montieth, Haas, and Krimes for 2nd through fourth place over the final five laps allowed Rahmer some breathing room as the laps wound down.

With two laps to go Montieth was clear of that battle and was able to focus on the leader. Montieth closed the gap with two laps to go and on the final lap was close enough heading up the backstretch to make a final dive to the inside of the final turns to the checkered.

But Montieth, the one they call “The Edge”, was a little dull this night as Rahmer calmly drove off the fourth turn strong to take the checkered .84-seconds ahead for his first 2018 Lincoln win of the season.

“He (Freddie) did really good,” said his father Fred in victory lane. “To beat Brian here…he’s a really good racer.

“We’ll just keep plugging away. This is going to be good for Freddy’s confidence. He’s been dragging his butt around a little bit so this will definitely help.”

Montieth settled for second, with Krimes, Haas, and fifth-starting Tyler Ross finishing third through fifth respectively.

“We really appreciate all Lincoln does and we wanted to support them tonight, said the winner. “I really want to thank all those that came out to watch us here and we’re looking forward to the next one (race).”

Completing the top-10 were Jim Siegel (started 10th), Kyle Moody (started 6th), Glenndon Forsythe (started 14th), Chad Trout (started 13th), and Brandon Rahmer (started 15th).

And then later his father added, “I wanted to dedicate this win to “Ozzy”. He was with Manheim Auto Auction for a lot of years and he just passed away. He was a great guy and will definitely be missed.”

“Heats for the 24 410 Sprinters on hand were won by Shetler, Montieth, and Cole Young.

Polesitter Steve Wilbur withstood a race-long challenge from Chase Dietz to pick up his first win of the year in the 20-lap 358 sprint feature.

Wilbur grabbed the lead at the outset with third-starting Ashley Cappetta and polesitter Kenny Kuhn in tow.

Seventh-starting Dietz was methodically working his way to the front and passed fifth-starting Trey Hivner for third place on the sixth lap. Dietz finally got by a strong Cappetta car for second place on the eighth lap and set his sights on race-long leader Wilbur.

Four separate cautions over the 2nd half of the race gave Dietz a chance to pass Wilbur for the lead, but, Wilbur maintained his line on each restart and weathered the storm to take the checkered .66-seconds ahead of Dietz for his second career win at Lincoln Speedway.

Cappetta settled for a hard-fought third place finish, with ninth-starting Jeff Halligan fourth, and eighth-starting Steven Drevicki fifth.

Completing the top-10 were sixth-starting Troy Wagaman, Jr., outside front row starter Kenny Kuhn, fourth-starting Brie Hershey, 10th-starting Steve Owings, and 13th-starting Chris Arnold.

Heats for the 26 358 Sprinters on hand were won by Owings, Chase Dietz, and Tracey, with Alyson Dietz winning the consolation.

Fourth-starting Korey Sites was in a league of his own in the 20-lap street stock feature as he drove from his fourth-starting spot to chase down polesitter Brian Walls by the second lap and made his race-winning pass on the fourth lap.

Sites comfortably led the rest of the way to take the checkered 3 seconds ahead of sixth-starting Randy Zechman for the win.

Ryan Smith settled for third, Josh Bloom fourth, Joey Hoffer fifth, Chad Smith sixth, Brad Bingaman seventh, hard-charger Wayne Dutterer eighth, and Bobby Meixsell ninth.

Heats for the 21 Street Stocks on hand were won by Jimmy Combs, Adams, Bobby Meixsell.

Lincoln Speedway is back in action next Saturday night, April 21st at 7 PM, for McSHERRYSTOWN MOOSE LODGE #720 NIGHT on AUTO RACING CLUB OF HAGERSTOWN (ARCH) NIGHT with the 410 Sprint and 358 Sprint regulars being joined by the 358 Late Models.

FROM WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY

APRIL 13, 2018

LANCE DEWEASE COMES FROM 13TH TO WIN TOMMY HINNERSHITZ MEMORIAL AT WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY

MECHANICSBURG, Pa. – Lance Dewease came from the 13th starting spot to win the Tommy Hinnershitz Memorial for the Sprint cars Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway.

For Dewease, of Fayetteville, his 88th career Grove win was worth $5,000 and it came against Tony Stewart’s All Star Circuit of Champions.

“We could put the car anywhere on the race track,” Dewease said. “We were really good in our heat race, but couldn’t show it. I’m fortunate to be involved with this deal. We’re having fun. That’s what it’s all about. They work hard at this.”

Brock Zearfoss started on the pole and took the lead on the opening lap of the 30-lap main event over six-time All Star Champion Chad Kemenah, who started second, and fourth starter Danny Dietrich.

Zearfoss built a big lead in the first five laps as Kemenah kept Dietrich at bay. Meanwhile, Dewease was racing forward from his 13th starting spot. He took sixth from Anthony Macri with seven laps completed as Zearfoss began lapping slower cars.

Dewease continued his march forward taking fifth from Mark Smith with 10 laps completed. Zearfoss continued to work traffic as Kemenah and Dietrich closed.

Also closing was Dewease as he took fourth from Chad Trout. Dietrich drove under Kemenah in turn two taking over second in lapped traffic. Zearfoss had one lapped car between himself and Dietrich. Dewease drove by Kemenah and into third by the half-way point.

Zearfoss worked the cushion as Dietrich and Dewease were on the bottom behind a lapped car. Dewease tried the top in turn one, but couldn’t make the pass. Dietrich went high in turn three to maintain the spot. They continued their battle for second for another lap racing close. Dietrich slipped high in turn two and Dewease drove by with 10 laps to go.

Zearfoss was racing the bottom now in lapped traffic with Dewease closing. Dewease used the middle groove to pass a slower car and was under Zearfoss in turn four, but Zearfoss led the lap. Dewease made the winning pass in turn two on lap 24.

“I didn’t even know I was leading,” Dewease said. “I was trying to pass every car I got to as quick as possible. They gave me the five to go and I was leading and I knew I had to slow down because I knew there wasn’t much rubber left on these tires.”

Dewease was in control, but the caution flew with two laps to go when Alan Krimes stopped in turn four. The caution flew again on the restart for Tim Shaffer.

Dewease controlled the restart again scoring his 88th career Grove win over Zearfoss, Dietrich, Trout, and Kemenah. Anthony Macri, Greg Hodnett, Jac Haudenschild, Mark Smith and Freddie Rahmer rounded out the top 10.

Jac Haudenschild set quick time over the 46-car field with a lap of 17.456. Paul McMahan, Chad Trout, Cory Haas, Mark Smith and Anthony Macri won the heat races. Bill Balog won the C-main. Brock Zearfoss came from the rear to win the first dash and Chad Kemenah won the second. Trey Starks won the B-main.

In the 20-lap main event for the PASS 305 Sprints, Austin Bishop took the early lead from Drew Ritchey and John Scarborough. Former PASS champion Ken Duke Jr. took third from Scarborough with three laps completed.

Bishop held a comfortable lead over Ritchey and Duke Jr. as they reached the half-way point and slower traffic.

Bishop got through traffic without much trouble scoring the win over Ritchey, Duke Jr., Zach Newlin and Darren Miller. The non-stop time was 7:15.72. Dave Grube, Scott Lutz, Jaremi Hanson, Kyle Smith and Kyle Ganoe rounded out the top 10.

Scott Lutz, John Scarborough and Zach Newlin won the heat races.

410 Sprint Car Feature Finish, 30 Laps: 1. Lance Dewease; 2. Brock Zearfoss; 3. Danny Dietrich; 4. Chad Trout; 5. Chad Kemenah; 6. Anthony Macri; 7. Greg Hodnett; 8. Jac Haudenschild; 9.

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY NAMES KYLE ALEXANDER TRACK CO-ANNOUNCER

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Selinsgrove Speedway named Kyle Alexander of Sunbury as the track’s co-announcer alongside long-time announcer and general manager Steve Inch of Lewisburg for the 2018 racing season.

Entering his third season as the voice of Selinsgrove Raceway Park, the one-fifth mile kart track located inside of Selinsgrove’s half-mile oval, Alexander will get the opportunity to call the action on the Superspeedway of Dirt Track Racing this year as well.

At 25 years old, Alexander is no stranger to lending his voice to local broadcasts. Before he graduated from Shikellamy Area High School in 2011, he was behind a microphone and pushing buttons during live radio broadcasts of sporting events. That experience eventually led to radio opportunities doing nights, afternoons, and a morning show.

Alexander also filled in as Inch’s co-host on the popular motorsports radio show “The Inside Lane” on the former ESPN 92.3 in 2014 and 2015.

In September of last year, Alexander joined Sunbury Broadcasting Co. as the midday jockey on 94KX and Program Director.

For the past two seasons, Mike Batz of Lebanon was the speedway’s co-announcer. Batz wanted to focus more of his efforts on his family’s Linda’s Speedway this year.

“Mike did a great job for us the last two seasons and we wish him all the best,” said Inch. “Kyle is excited about his new opportunity at the track where he grew up going to the races.”

Selinsgrove Speedway’s 2018 season opener will be this Saturday, April 14, at 6 p.m. featuring the 360 sprint cars, limited late models, pro stocks, roadrunners, and a special appearance by the Penn Mar Vintage Race Car Club. Pit gates will open at 3 p.m. with grandstand gates at 4 p.m.

Port Royal Has All Stars Kauffman Classic & Moon Shine Camo Series Kickoff Sat.
Stellar fields expected for both high profile events!

4/8/18

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Port Royal Speedway will honor its most successful driver in history coming up Saturday night, April 14 when Tony Stewart’s Arctic Cat All Stars Circuit of Champions Sprints invade for the annual Keith Kauffman Classic.

The Kauffman Classic will go 30 laps in distance and pay $5,000 to the winner.

Also on the card will be the kickoff of the 2018 Moon Shine Camo Rt. 35 Dirt Late Model Challenge Series, contested between both Port Royal and Selinsgrove Speedways.

The Moon Shine Camo Series kickoff will go 25 laps in distance and pay $2,200 to win.

Adult general admission for the show is set at $22 with students ages 12 – 18 admitted for $10.

All gates will open at 3 pm.

The event is presented by Locust Grove Retirement.

Kauffman, the Port Royal oval’s most prolific winner, owns a list-topping 129 career sprint car wins at the historic track along with a pair of late model victories.

His last Port Royal win occurred on June 11, 2011 after taking his first back in 1977. The veteran retired in 2013.

Invader Dale Blaney of Hartford, Ohio, won the inaugural Kauffman Classic in 2016 while Lance Dewease scored the 2017 version.

A deep field of All Stars is expected to enter the event as the circuit recently released a roster of 20 drivers that are expected to follow the series in 2018.

On hand will be time-tested, well-traveled, highly successful veterans such as Jac Haudenschild, Joey Saldana, Dave Blaney, Chad Kemenah and Paul McMahan.

And in fact, Blaney just scored at the track for his first win of the season anywhere in an unsanctioned event on April 7, to tune up for the big Kauffman Classic.

Other All Stars expected to compete include young guns like Parker Price-Miller, Max McGhee, Carson Macedo, Cale Conley, Aaron Reutzel and more.

With a total purse worth more than $12,000 up for grabs, the Moon Shine Camo Rt. 35 Series kickoff for late models is sure to attract all the biggest stars from across the region as the series boosts an increased total event purse payout this season.

Drivers will get $225 just to start the main event.

Several thousand additional dollars have been pumped into the event purses and series-end point payout for the 2018 version of the six-race series conducted between Port Royal and Selinsgrove Speedways.

The series is comprised of six races with three being held at each speedway during the season.

Williams Grove To Honor Acclaimed Wheeler Hinnershitz With Memorial Friday All Stars to help honor famed driver that won first-ever Williams Grove race in 1939

4/8/18

Mechanicsburg – When Williams Grove Speedway opens its gates on Friday night, April 13 to a contingent of All Stars and Pennsylvania Posse sprint car stars, it will do so in honor of one of the most recognizable names in motorsports history dating back to the 1930s.

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

Hinnershitz won the race in what was called a “hard and heady” event to best the famed Joie Chitwood.

Hinnershitz’s death in 1999 left behind an auto-racing legacy worthy of note by any standards.

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

He had garnered 103 total AAA/USAC feature wins with 19 taking place at Williams Grove.

Hinnershitz set 43 AAA track records during his tenure and would compete in three Indianapolis 500s.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Deep Field Of All Stars To Challenge Posse In Friday Williams Grove Tommy Memorial Locals hope to keep 32 & 0 record against invaders intact in honor of Hinnershitz

4/8/18

Mechanicsburg – Williams Grove Speedway will present the annual Tommy Hinnershitz Memorial coming up Friday, April 13 at 7:30 pm and for the first time in history, the special event will be sanctioned by a touring group.

The Arctic Cat All Stars Circuit of Champions Sprints will invade to compete for the $5,000 top prize and they will bring with them a deep contingent of competitors as the circuit recently announced a list of 20 touring drivers who will follow the series in 2018.

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

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

The PASS/IMCA 305 sprints are also on the special All Stars Tommy racing card.

Tommy Hinnershitz, known as “The Flying Dutchman,” from Oley, Pennsylvania, holds the distinction of winning the first ever race held at historic Williams Grove Speedway back on May 21, 1939.

After a 30-year career, spanning 1930-1960, Hinnershitz retired from the sport but stayed in touch with his legacy and motorsports until the time of his death in 1999.

And Williams Grove will honor his legacy with Friday’s Tommy Hinnershitz Memorial, pitting the All Stars traverlers against the Pennsylvania Posse for the first time this season.

Over the years since the All Stars first appeared at Williams Grove back in 1970, no bonafide touring All Star has ever won an All Stars race at Williams Grove Speedway.

Coming into 2018, the Pennsylvania Posse holds a perfect 32 and 0 record against the All Stars.

And they want to keep that record alive in the Tommy Memorial but a talent-laden field will be pulling pitside to challenge the Posse.

Expected to enter the event are time-tested, well-traveled, highly successful veterans such as Jac Haudenschild, Joey Saldana, Dave Blaney, Chad Kemenah and Paul McMahan.

And with a supporting All Stars cast of young guns like Parker Price-Miller, Max McGhee, Carson Macedo, Cale Conley and Aaron Reutzel among others, 2018 may just prove to be the season of the Possee’s undoing at Williams Grove.

Lance Dewease is the defending winner of the Tommy race and a two-time winner of the event since it took the Tommy name in 2007. Prior to that time the race was known as the Early Bird Championship, begun in 1983.

TYLER ESH SCORES CAREER FIRST 410 SPRINT WIN AT THE FABULOUS LINCOLN SPEEDWAY;

Brent Shearer and Bob Gutshall score wins in 358 sprint and wingless super sportsman action

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 4/7/2018 – 26 year old Tyler Esh of New Providence led all 25 laps from his pole position and held off 2-time 2018 winner Brian Montieth to pick up his first career 410 Sprint win at the Fabulous Lincoln Speedway Saturday afternoon.

Picking up a first-time win anywhere is special. For Esh, to pick up his inaugural win was even more special when considering he had six-time Lincoln Champ, and two-time 2018 winner Brian Montieth chasing him in a three-lap shootout to the checkers.

“With three (laps) to go I never prayed so hard in a race car in all my life,” said Esh following his first-ever wing-dance for winning the feature. “Just three more laps was all I needed…I saw him trying to come underneath me the last three laps and I was just hoping not to make a mistake and pull back around him every time and it worked out.”

And work out it did.

Esh started on the pole and grabbed the lead at the drop of the green with third-starting Glenndon Forsythe and outside frontrow starter Scott Fisher following. Friday night Williams Grove winner Cory Haas came charging from his sixth starting spot to grab third on the second lap and eventually got by Forsythe for the runner-up spot on the 13th lap.

As the non-stop laps wound down in the 25-lap feature ninth-starting Montieth and seventh-starting Freddie Rahmer were methodically working there way to the front as Esh cruised out it front, just out of reach of the back of the field.

Montieth started gaining on the leaders and moved around Forsythe for third on the 18th lap and then by Haas for the runner-up spot with five laps to go.

Just as it looked like Esh had the checkered in sight in the non-stop affair, disaster struck on the 23rd lap as Forsythe and Gerard McIntyre, Jr. tangled in turn two to bring out the caution.

“I really didn’t look at the leader board until the caution came out with three (laps) to go,” said Esh. “I was starting to catch lapped traffic and trying not to make a mistake. When I saw (Montieth) on the board I didn’t know what to do other than to not mess up and hope for the best.”

This set up a dramatic three-lap dash to the checkered with Esh being chased by Montieth (who had won the last two races at Lincoln), Haas, and Rahmer.

“When I seen the No.21 (Montieth) on the board I knew he could run top end on me so I figured as long as I didn’t mess up I was either going to win it or put it into the fence trying.”

Rahmer got by Haas for third on the restart with Esh now staring at Montieth and Rahmer chasing him with a clear track ahead and only two laps to go.

“I know we haven’t went out of here on four wheel too much, but this definitely feels good. I can’t thank my mom, Sue, and dad, Sam, and my brother Travis enough. And my wife Jessica for sticking behind me and letting me come back after getting hurt. My wife just lost her grandmother so I hope she was riding with me and helped us get here.”

Montieth started to show himself on the inside of each turn with Esh holding steady in his high line around each time. In the final turns to the checkered Montieth appeared to pull even on the inside but the Lancaster racer held steady and drove away on the exit of the turn to take the checkered for his first career 410 sprint win.

“I feel like I’m getting more-and-more comfortable (in the car). We had some bugs there the last couple of weeks. We just had to work through it. We’ll just give it all we got and keep going and keep this momentum going.”

Rahmer settled for third, Alan Krimes fourth, and Haas fifth.

“You’ve got to take advantage of your starting position and not make any mistakes. I owe this to everyone who helps me out Kevin Quirk from Racewear, Chad Baker from RRI Designs, Diversified Machine, RAYCO, my mom and dad, my brother.”

Rounding out the top-10 were Kyle Moody, Jim Siegel, Chad Trout, Brandon Rahmer, and Landon Myers.

Heats for the 17 410 Sprinters on hand were won by Esh and Fisher.

Manheim’s Brent Shearer started his No.12 sprinter on the pole and led forth-starting No.12B of Mike Bittinger all 20 laps en route to his first win of 2018, and the third of his career in the 358 sprint feature.

Shearer withstood a pair of cautions, one on the fourth lap for a slowing Greg Plank (who started outside Shearer on the frontrow), and another on the 12th lap for a spinning Cody Fletcher and Kenny Kuhn. Each time Shearer held off Bittinger and Troy Wagaman, Jr. (who started sixth) and raced away to a comfortable 2.53-second victory.

Bittinger and Wagaman settled for second and third respectively with last weeks’ 358 sprint season-opening winner and 13th-starting Jeff Halligan fourth, and 11th-starting Chase Dietz fifth.

Completing the top-10 were 14 year old Dylan Norris, Matt Findley, Dave Brown, Brie Hershey, and Fletcher.

Heats for the 19 358 Sprinters on hand were won by Dietz and Norris.

Bob Gutshall kicked off the super sportsman season with a win in the special 20-lap wingless super sportsman feature. Gutshall took the lead from his pole-starting position and held off veteran racer Billy Brian, Jr. to claim the victory by 1.41-seconds.

Fifth-starting Steve Wilbur, sixth-starting Carmen Perigo, Jr., and eighth-starting Craig Perigo completed the top-five.

Heats for the 15 Wingless Super Sportsman were won by Joey Biassi and Gutshall.

Lincoln Speedway is back in action next Saturday night, April 14th at 7 PM, with the 410 Sprints and 358 Sprints being joined by the street stocks. Gates will open at 5 PM, with hot laps getting underway at 6:30 PM, and heats at 7 PM.

Blaney Passes Hodnett & Out-Guns Wolfe To Win Port Royal Sprints Thriller Dylan Yoder Is Tops In Super Late Models While Miller Takes 305s

 4/7/18

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – It was a great night for the Blaney family in racing “circles” on Saturday as veteran sprint car driver Dave Blaney of Mooresville, NC., took his fourth career victory at Port Royal Speedway in Pennsylvania while his son Ryan Blaney scored the NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Texas Motor Speedway.

To get his fourth career win at Port Royal worth $3,600, “The Buckeye Bullet,” Dave Blaney had to drive by Greg Hodnett and then out-gun Lucas Wolfe to the checkers.

In the 22-lap super late model main, Selinsgrove’s Dylan Yoder took the $2,000 payday after a battle with Nick Dickson and an attempt at stealing the lead at the hands of Coleby Frye.

The 18-lap 305 sprint main was scored by Jeff Miller of Huntingdon after a crash in the final turn took out the leader.

Hodnett started second in the 25-lap 410 sprint car main with Blaney taking the green from the third position and Wolfe in 10th.

The caution appeared early in the event, with two laps scored when Parker Price-Miller spun high in the fourth turn and collected Jason Shultz and Joe Kata.

Hodnett held command for the restart with Kody Lehman and Blaney following.

Blaney snagged second from Lehman at the new green and then stuck with Hodnett, not allowing him to “check out” as the race entered the rear of the field with eight laps away.

Racing through traffic, Blaney was able to narrow Hodnett’s advantage before the second caution flag of the race unfurled with 11 laps to go for a spin by Aaron Reutzel who was up to sixth after starting the race in 14th.

Blaney blasted across the bottom and middle of the first corner on the restart to drive by Hodnett and take command of the event while Lucas Wolfe restarted third.

Wolfe was working well on both sides of the track and overtook Hodnett for second with nine laps to go.

Blaney then raced to stay ahead of Wolfe as he came up on the rear of the field during the final five laps but Wolfe was clearly closing as the two-to-go sign came out.

Wolfe had just one shot to steal the win and it came with a deep, third turn dive and swoop to come up off the bottom in the fourth turn with the lead, just in front of Blaney.

But Blaney turned the car down off of the cushion as the pair raced out of the fourth turn and drew back to Wolfe’s inside as they sped toward the checkers, mustering just enough power to retake command as the finish line neared, posting a .312 second margin of victory.

Hodnett rode home third followed by Anthony Macri and Dylan Cisney.

Sixth through 10th went to Brock Zearfoss, Danny Dietrich, Logan Wagner, Steve Buckwalter and Mike Wagner.

Heats went to Rick Lafferty, Jason Shultz and Joe Kata.

Second starter Nick Dickson would lead the first 10 laps of the super late model main before losing the lead to Dylan Yoder.

Yoder and Dickson waged a spirited battle for control for several laps before Yoder was finally able to muscle control away.

In fact, just before Yoder came up with the lead, he was wound up in a three-car battle for control, squeezed in between Dickson and an advancing Coleby Frye in the fourth corner.

And it was out of that squeeze play that Yoder took command, just before the first yellow flag of the race unfurled with 11 laps away.

Dickson failed to challenge on the restart and then ended up withdrawing from the event as Frye assumed second with Andy Haus in third.

Restarts with 14, 17 and 20 laps in the books found Haus challenging Frye for second but to no avail and each time Yoder was able to pull away.

It was the 13th win of Yoder’s Port Royal career, coming by 1.073 seconds over Frye, Haus, Andrew Yoder and Mike Lupfer.

Sixth through 10th went to Brett Schadel, Tim Smith Jr., Rance Garlock, Jason Schmidt and Larry Baer.

Heats went to Lupfer and Haus.

Nick Sweigart led all but the final lap of the 305 sprint main, falling victim to an increasingly ragged outside cushion.

Sweigart had Austin Bishop challenging during the first half of the race and then found Jeff Miller in pursuit during the second half.

With a few laps to go Sweigart clouted the outside first turn wall but saved the car and his lead as he appeared headed to a first ever Port Royal win.

But that outside wall bit again, this time as he sailed near it in the third and fourth turns where he ended up riding the wall before losing control and spinning as he headed to the checkers.

This handed the lead to Miller who made good on his fortunes to pick up the win.

Drew Ritchey was second followed by Kyle Smith, Jonathan Jones and Zach Newlin.

Three heats went to Smith, Miller and Dave Grube.

Haas Wins First For Trone At Williams Grove, Nouse Gets Careeer 18th In 358s

4/6/18
 

Mechanicsburg – Cory Haas of York drove the Trone’s Special No. 39 sprinter to the victory Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway, rocketing from his front row starting spot to pick up the win.

In the 358 sprint main, defending track champion Kevin Nouse took his first victory of the season.

The first start in the 25-lap 410 sprint main was red flagged when Kody Lehman spun in the first turn, collecting Brock Zearfoss and Anthony Macri.

The next attempt at a start saw Freddie Rahmer tangle with Steve Buckwalter in the same turn, forcing a yellow flag to unfurl.

Haas then sped away in the Trone’s Special on the third attempted start to lead the first circuit over Brian Montieth.

But the caution quickly unfuled again, with just two laps scored, this time for a slowing Adrian Shaffer in the third corner.

The rest of the distance would go non-stop with Montieth giving chase of Haas the entire distance.

On more than one occasion, Montieth appeared poised to take a stab at the leader only to scrub speed as he attempted to set his mount up for a run on the cushion.

Haas entered the rear of the field on the 13th lap, allowing Montieth to get his closest a few laps later.

As the pair headed to the stripe to record lap 16, Montieth was able to get under Haas for the lead in the third and fourth turns but Haas’ momentum kept him in control of the race.

With five laps to go, Haas struggled to get Tyler Eash one lap down and again Montieth had a chance to make the most of his chances but Haas was able to stay just out of striking distance on the cushion to preserve his lead.

Montieth took a final blast for the lead as the front duo shot into the third corner, but came up short at the finish line as Haas was not to be deterred, taking the seventh win of his career at the track by .329 seconds.

It was Haas’ first win at the track since September 6, 2015 and his first since taking over the seat of the Trone No. 39.

Rick Lafferty rode home third followed by Lucas Wolfe and Greg Hodnett.

After starting 14th, Parker Price-Miller rode home in sixth followed by Danny Dietrich, Chad Trout, TJ Stutts and Gerard McIntyre Jr.

Heats went to Matt Boland, Haas and Montieth.

Nouse started third in the 20-lap 358 sprint main and followed Hank Donovan Jr. for just the first lap before taking control of the event.

The entire race went non-stop with last week’s winner, Jeff Halligan motoring through the field from the seventh starting spot.

Halligan took fifth on the third lap, third on lap nine and drove into second with eight laps to go.

Halligan then cut Nouse’s advantage down from nearly half a lap to about a straightaway but ran out of time to gain any more ground.

The victory was the 18th of Nouse’s career at Williams Grove Speedway in the 358 division.

Brett Wanner was third followed by Donovan and Scott Fisher.

Sixth through 10th went to Todd Rittenhouse Jr., Troy Wagaman Jr., Matt Findley, Gregg Foster and Chris Frank.

Twin heats went to Nouse and Donovan.

The Eastern Museum of Motor Racing Opens For 2018 Season

York Springs, Pa. – The Eastern Museum of Motor Racing will host an open house on April 6 through April 8. The open house is the commencement of the museum’s 2018 spring through fall schedule.

Beginning this weekend, EMMR will be open from spring through fall on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Another 410 Sprint Yellow Breeches 500 & 358 Sprint Double At Williams Grove Friday
Deep All Stars Contingent Invades For Tommy Hinnershitz Classic April 6

4/1/18
 

Mechanicsburg – Another Yellow Breeches 500 Series event for the Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint cars is in the offing this Friday, April 6, as the oval moves to an 8 pm starting time.

Also appearing this Friday, for the second time this season, will be the HJ Towing & Recovery 358 sprints.

Adult general admission for the April 6 racing program is set at $15 with students ages 13-20 admitted for just $10.

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

The Yellow Breeches 500 Series for the 410 sprint cars is a series of races held each season that pays a hefty $500 to start the evening’s 25-lap main event.

Following this week’s Yellow Breeches race, Friday the 13th of April will present one lucky driver with the biggest payday of the young Williams Grove season when the great Tommy Hinnershitz is memorialized with the running of the Tommy Classic.

The Arctic Cat All Stars Circuit of Champions Sprints will invade the oval to compete for a $5,000 payday in the event.

The mid-April All Stars match up with the Pennsylvania Posse for the Tommy Classic comes with very few races having been completed in the region this season thanks to the elements.

That fact coupled with the recently released 2018 All Stars driver roster lays the groundwork for what should be a challenging and exciting Williams Grove event for all comers.

The All Stars traveling band this season includes some great depth including veterans like 30-time All Stars winner Jac Haudenschild, 74-time All Stars winner Joey Saldana, 48-time series winner Dave Blaney and returning series champion Chad Kemenah.

Of the promising young All Stars touring talent this season, drivers sure to put some spark in the contingent are Parker Price Miller, Kokomo, IN.; Aaron Reutzel, Clute, TX; and Cale Conley of Vienna, West Virginia.

Other regulars will include the likes of Max Stambaugh, Carl Bowser, Caleb Helms and Tyler Esh, to name a few.

This week’s Yellow Breeches race will be the last chance for any local drivers to get dialed into the Williams Grove surface before the All Stars invasion.

The PASS/IMCA 305 sprints are also on the April 13 racing card.

BRIAN MONTIETH CAPTURES $5,000 SPRINT SPRING CHAMPIONSHIP FOR SECOND STRAIGHT LINCOLN WIN;

Jeff Halligan wins 358 Sprint Season Opener

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 3/31/2018 – Brian Montieth charged from his sixth starting spot to chase down front row race-long leader Danny Dietrich while navigating lapped traffic on the seventh lap, grabbed the lead on the eighth lap, and drove away to his second win of 2018 in the 30-lap $5,000-to-win Sprint Spring Championship Saturday night at the Fabulous Lincoln Speedway.

In the 358 Sprint nightcap, sixth-starting Jeff Halligan passed front row starter and race-long leader Tyler Walton on the fifth lap for the lead, and then man-handled his sprinter over the final laps en route to the season-opening 20-lap feature win for the 358 sprints.

In the first time-trial, big-money, 410 Sprint event of 2018 at Lincoln Speedway, defending six-time track champion Brian Montieth left no doubt that he is once again ready for the challenge to defend his title with a convincing win in the 30-lap Spring Championship.

Outside front row starter Danny Dietrich of Gettysburg drove by polesitter Freddie Rahmer at the drop of he green to take the lead by the end of the opening lap. Dietrich quickly tried to put some distance between himself and the field while in the clean air in front of the field. His speed allowed him to catch the back of the field with only six laps down.

Meanwhile Montieth did what Montieth does best, charging hard and passing cars. Montieth got by third-starting Lucas Wolfe for fourth at the end of the second lap. He then drove around third-starting Alan Krimes for third on the third lap. And then finally passed polesitter Rahmer on the seventh as Dietrich entered lapped traffic.

Montieth didn’t waste time. He closed on Dietrich entering the first and second turns of the eighth lap and took the lead before the lap was complete.

From there Montieth used what the track gave him. A Trey Starks spin in the first and second turns with 10 laps in the books gave the challengers behind Montieth an opening. Dietrich, Rahmer, Krimes, and Wolfe all lined up behind Montieth on the restart with 20 laps to go and tried desperately to keep pace with the driver called, “The Edge”.

Montieth drove his Jerry Parrish-owned Premier Auto Works Racing No.21 hard at the drop of the green and continued his assault over the final 20 non-stop laps to record his 57th career win at the Pigeon Hills oval. The win moved him into sole possession of fifth place on the All time Lincoln Speedway winners list.

Dietrich, Rahmer, Wolfe and Krimes settled for second through fifth-place respectively.

Completing the top-10 were fifth-starting Corey Haas, seventh-starting Parker Price Miller, 15th-starting Kasey Kahne, 11th-starting Kyle Moody, and 10th-starting Jim Siegel.

NASCAR driver Kasey Kahne and NASCAR Truck Series Champion Christopher Bell were on hand to battle the Pennsylvania Posse this night. Kahne timed 18th quick in time trials, finished fifth in his heat, and finished eighth in the 30-lap feature after starting 15th. Bell timed 12th quick, finished third in his heat, but suffered mechanical problems in the feature after starting 12th and finished a distant 22nd.

Heats for the 410 Sprinters were won by Haas, Montieth, and Dietrich, with Tim Glatfelter winning the consolation.

Fast time in time trials over the 25-car field was set by Wolfe with a 1-lap time of 13.367-seconds (100.995 MPH).

Just like his 410 sprint counterpart, 358 Sprint driver started sixth in the 20-lap 358 sprint feature opener, quickly drove to the front and took the lead from second-starting race-long leader Tyler Walton by the fifth lap.

Halligan appeared to be dominant while racing out in front through heavy lapped traffic. But a stoppage of action on the 15th lap for a Brent Shearer flip in the second turn revealed a potential problem in he form of a broken power steering.

But Halligan didn’t allow it to derail his opening day drive. Halligan drove hard on the restart and through lapped traffic over the final 6 non-stop laps to take the checkered .88-seconds in front of third-starting Steve Drevicki and 11th-starting Chase Dietz for his sixth career Lincoln Speedway 358 sprint win.

Eighth-starting Kyle Denmyer finished fourth, with Walton settling for fifth.

Completing the top-10 were Eric Parker, Cody Fletcher, Trey Hivner, Ashley Cappetta, and Brie Hershey.

Heats for the 26 358 Sprinters were won by Chase Dietz, Shearer, and Parker.

Lincoln Speedway switches to night time racing next Saturday, March 24th at 6 PM, with the 410 Sprints being joined by the 358 Sprints. Gates will open at 4 PM, with hot laps getting underway at 5:30 PM, and heats at 6 PM.

Dewease, Rine, Weaver And Powell Open Port Royal Season With Wins

3/31/18

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Lance Dewease of Fayetteville scored the 2018 season opener for 410 sprint cars at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night, taking the lead from Jason Shultz to record the $4,000 victory which was the 107th of his career at the Juniata County oval.

Jeff Rine of Danville proved victorious in the super late model main to record his 19th career win at the oval. Rine took home $2,200 for the win.

In the Mason Dixon Shootout Series feature for limited late models, Justin Weaver took the lead from Tim Fedder to pick up the $1,000 payday and defending track champion Bill Powell scored the win in the xtreme stock main to close out the night.

Just over 100 total racecars packed the Port Royal pits for the show.

Shultz and Dewease earned the front row for the 25-lap sprint car main with the first start aborted when Mark Smith spun in the third turn, collecting Jared Esh and Vince Snyder.

Dewease had gotten the upper hand on that initial start but the next try saw Shultz keep his rear wheels underneath his mount and take the lead over Dewease.

Shultz could only outlast Dewease’s 69K for two laps however before Dewease drove to his inside in the first and second turns to take control on the third lap.

Meanwhile, sixth starter Dylan Cisney was blasting around the speedway and drove into third on the fifth tour as Dewease hit traffic with seven away.

Cisney had driven down Shultz and Dewease to be in a challenging position when the caution flag unfurled with 11 laps completed.

However after the restart Cisney failed to be able to mount a bid and instead Dewease went uncontested to the victory, which was his third career Port Royal opening day checkers.

Finishing second, 2.5 seconds behind was Shultz with Mike Wagner getting third followed by Greg Hodnett and Cisney who faded later in the event.

Sixth through 10th went to Brock Zearfoss, Carl Bowser, Dave Blaney, Steve Buckwalter and Ryan Taylor.

Heats for the 27 sprint cars went to Cisney, Hodnett and Bowser with TJ Stutts taking the consolation.

Rine started on the pole of the 22-lap super late model main and led every lap for the win.

His pace was slowed thanks to cautions on the fifth, eighth and ninth laps but no one could mount a challenge for the win.

Andy Haus chased Rine for the first nine laps before Coleby Frye took second on a restart.

Rine drove to the checkers with a 2.6 second margin over Frye, followed by Haus, Trent Brenneman and Tim Smith Jr.

Sixth through 10th went to Michael Maresca, Travis Stickley, Dylan Yoder, Hayes Mattern and Danny Snyder.

Heats for the 26 cars went to Rine, Haus and Stickley with the consolation going to Tyler Bare.

The 20-lap Mason Dixon limited late model feature saw Taylor Farling lead from the pole when action began with sixth starter Tim Fedder giving chase immediately from the start.

It took Fedder only six laps to circle outside for the lead however 13th starter Justin Weaver proved fleet as well and made his presence known by the halfway point.

Weaver took command from Fedder with just five laps to go to run to the win.

Jeremy Ohl got by Fedder in the final two laps to finish second with Fedder ending up third followed by Farling and Devin Frey.

Sixth through 10th went to Dillan Stake, Derick Garman, Chuck Shultz, Shaun Jones and Brad McGinnis.

Heats for the 38-car field went to Frey, Fedder, Craig Wagaman and Ohl. Ryan Walls won the consolation race.

Bill Powell led all 15 laps of the xtreme stock feature with Whelan Brunson racing up to second by the finish from the 11th starting spot.

However post race inspection found Brunson relegated to last, thus bumping original third finisher Kevin Imes up to second with Jason Zook credited with third.

Ryan Taylor Scores Career Second In Williams Grove Sprints
Jeff Halligan opens 358 season with victory

3/30/18
 

Mechanicsburg – Ryan Taylor dominated the 25-lap sprint car feature at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night to record his second career oval victory in 410 sprint car action.

The win was worth $3,600 for the Perkasie driver.

In the season debut of the 358 sprint car divison at the track, Jeff Halligan outran Kevin Nouse for the win.

The initial start of the 410 sprint car main was red flagged for a first turn flip by Brian Montieth, who had started fifth in the field.

Max McGhee clobbered Montieth after flipping however both drivers escaped injury.

Only the first lap of the main was completed before the first of four yellow flags unfurled on the field, this one for a slowing Greg Hodnett and Tyler Esh and Freddie Rahmer who withdrew from the race.

Taylor led Mark Smith for the restart as Lance Dewease got by Anthony Macri for third and set his sights on Smith.

The pair raced close for the second spot with Dewease moving to Smith’s inside on more than one occasion before the duo made contact with six away, finding Dewease spinning in the fourth turn while Smith continued on.

The restart saw fourth place runner Lucas Wolfe stop on the track.

The final caution flag of the race appeared with 12 laps down when Caleb Helms spun in the third turn and then Taylor’s pace went unhalted to the finish.

Smith was never able to mount a challenge for the win over the balance of the event, instead finishing 2.058 seconds behind at the finish.

Taylor noted that he knew he had a car that was good enough to win when on the initial start he set the car into the first turn, “and it stuck like glue.”

TJ Stutts rode home third followed by Macri and Trey Starks.

Sixth through 10th went to 16th starter Kasey Kahne, Parker Price Miller, Steve Buckwalter, Hodnett and Brock Zearfoss.

Heats for the 31 car field went to Tyler Esh, Stutts and Montieth with the consolation going to Danny Dietrich.

The first 12 laps of the 20 lap 358 sprint main went non-stop with original third starter Jeff Halligan leading from the start.

Halligan slid to the pole for the initial start after Phil Walter relinquished the spot before the green flag could drop.

Halligan’s pace was slowed with 12 down for a third turn spin by Brett Wanner.

The restart saw third runner Chase Dietz hop the cushion and spin in the first turn.

No further cautions would hinder the race after that point with Halligan holding off defending track champion Kevin Nouse for the victory on both of the restarts.

At the finish and for the final 10 laps, Halligan held a one-turn advantage over Nouse.

Matt Findley rode home third followed by Brent Shearer and Chris Frank.

Sixth through 10th went to Nyle Berkes, Brie Hershey, Todd Rittenhouse Jr., Glenndon Forsythe and Gregg Foster.

Heats went to Halligan, Foster and Shearer.

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY’S “WIDE OPEN” 2018 OPENER SET FOR APRIL 7; 360 SPRINT CARS & SUPER LATE MODELS WILL RACE FOR $2,000 TO WIN!

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – An exciting new era at Selinsgrove Speedway will begin at 6 p.m. Saturday, April 7, when the Snyder County oval swings open its gates for the “Wide Open 2018” Opener featuring 360 sprint cars and super late models in $2,000-to-win 25-lap main events. The pro stocks will round out the racing card in a $500-to-win 15-lap feature.

All the excitement and anticipation surrounding the upcoming season is being amplified by the biggest change in the speedway’s 72-year history with the pit area being moved outside the half-mile oval to provide fans with a wide-open view of the wheel-to-wheel racing action!

“Several crews are working hard to get the new pit area completed on time for the Opener,” said speedway General Manager Steve Inch. “Lighting, fencing, seating, public address additions, roads, a new concession stand and a lot more are close to being finished. As long as the weather cooperates we expect everything to be ready for the start of a historical season.”

Race fans are encouraged to use the Route 35 Entrance and race teams should plan to use the newly-widened Sand Hill Road Entrance to drive into the new pit area. The former Turn 4 Entrance will only be used to exit the new pit area at the conclusion of racing programs.

Selinsgrove Speedway will hold an open practice session 1-4 p.m. Saturday, March 31, for any division that will be competing at the track this year. Grandstand admission on practice day will be free and pit passes will be $20. Gates will open at 12 p.m.

The practice day will give race teams an opportunity to dial in their race cars, test out the speedway’s new red clay surface, and get familiar with the new pit area layout and procedures.

The speedway will showcase the 360 sprint cars, limited late models, pro stocks, and roadrunners at 6 p.m. Saturday, April 14. The Pen Mar Vintage Race Car Club will also be on hand April 14.

The 410 sprint cars will make their first stop at Selinsgrove Speedway this season Sunday, April 22, for the Ray Tilley Classic paying $4,088 to win.

Selinsgrove Raceway Park’s 2018 season opener for go karts will be held at 7 p.m. Friday, March 30. Track gates will open at 5 p.m. for the Good Friday program.

MONTIETH WINS LAST LAP THRILLER FOR 56TH CAREER WIN AT LINCOLN SPEEDWAY;

Jeremy Ott claims first career win in Central PA Legends season opener

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 3/17/2018 – Montieth drove under race-long leader Alan Krimes with the white flag waving entering the first and second turns, and raced away to his historic 56th career win in the 25-lap 410 sprint feature at the Fabulous Lincoln Speedway Saturday afternoon.

“That was my only shot,” said Montieth following his dramatic last lap pass for the win Saturday afternoon. “Alan (Krimes) was better than me in clean air…I was just hoping we’d get to lapped traffic sooner. (Krimes) had a 50-50 shot there on that one, and so did I, but we came out ahead.”

“I can’t say enough more about this Triple-X ride, Penske, and my boys. It’s going to be a long season I think for them because we might tear some stuff up. But it’s going to be fun.”

It looked like Alan Krimes had the field covered, leading the first 23 laps from his pole starting position. But then Montieth “happened”.

Montieth was charging through the field from his 9th starting position to move into second place by the 16th lap. But with Krimes effortlessly working through lapped traffic early on it didn’t appear Montieth would have a shot at the win.

A series of fortuitous cautions kept giving Krimes a clear track and clean air to remain in control as the laps wound down. Following the final caution restart with six laps to go Krimes finally caught lapped traffic with two laps to go. And Montieth was there.

“The track was a little narrow…I’ll be so glad when the lights are back on” reflected Montieth on his drive to the front in the final day race of the season at Lincoln Speedway. “There was a lot of passing out there and a lot of young guys out there holding there own for a long time. The track was demanding. It just shows you the competition that is here.”

With the white flag waving, Krimes got bottled up behind lapped cars entering the first and second turns. Montieth dove under Krimes and grabbed the lead exiting the second turn heading up the backstretch. Montieth held on through the final two turns to claim his first win of 2018.

“This is a new one,” said Montieth on this No.21 sprint car in victory lane after his crash the week before at Williams Grove. “That one got wrecked so they just put another one together…every week is a new week so we’ll see what happens.”

Krimes settled for the runner-up finish, with sixth-starting Cory Haas third, 10th-starting Kyle Moody fourth, and Jim Siegel fifth.

Completing the top-10 were Lucas Wolfe, Anthony Macri, Glenndon Forsythe, Greg Hodnett, and Caleb Helms

“It’s good to see the guys come in,” Montieth added about the teams who traveled to Lincoln to take advantage of the early-season racing. “It helps you gauge how you stack up against others around the country.”

Heats for the 27 410 Sprinters were won by Krimes, Brett Michalski, and Cole Young.

The fans who remained following the 410 sprint feature and braved the chilly afternoon weather got to see a great race-long battle in the season-opening 20-lap Central PA Legends feature. When the checkered flag waved, Carlisle’s Jeremy Ott was in front to notch his first career Legends victory.

Early race leader Donnie Leiby surrendered the top spot on lap nine to a charging Mason Chaney who was coming from his eighth starting position.

But Ott, who started ninth, kept pace with Chaney and made his race-winning pass on the 12th lap. Ott then held off Chaney the final eight laps to record his inaugural Legends victory.

10th-starting Travis McClelland finished third, fifth-starting Travis Perry finished fourth, and 19th-starting Lucas Montgomery finished a remarkable run in fifth.

Completing the top-10 were Leiby, Bill Diehl, 20th-starting Trent Yoder, 14th-starting Rick Hartwig, and 12th-starting Auston Bellemare.

Heats for the 30 Pizza Shop of Etters Central PA Legends were won by Chaney, Scott Haudeshell, and Perry, with Montgomery winning the consolation.

Lincoln Speedway switches to night time racing next Saturday, March 24th at 6 PM, with the 410 Sprints being joined by the 358 Sprints. Gates will open at 4 PM, with hot laps getting underway at 5:30 PM, and heats at 6 PM.

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY NAMES TODD PEIFER DIRECTOR OF FIRE & SAFETY SERVICES;
INTENSIVE HANDS-ON TRAINING HELD FOR TRACK SAFETY CREW MARCH 11

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Selinsgrove Speedway named Todd Peifer of Millersburg as the speedway’s Director of Fire & Safety Services for the upcoming 2018 season. Peifer, who owns and operates Peifer Fire Protection, Inc., is a veteran emergency medical technician (EMT) and expert in the field of fire suppression and safety.

For more than 27 years, Peifer Fire Protection is one of the leading fire suppression companies in the United States, and Peifer himself is one of a select few specially-trained industrial fire brigade instructors. His company provides fire suppression equipment to a number of regional and national motorsports venues.

“We are very pleased to have Todd take on this leadership position with the track,” said Selinsgrove Speedway General Manager Steve Inch. “Safety is the most important aspect of operating a race track, and Todd’s wealth of knowledge and expertise will complement one of the best-trained safety crews at any speedway in the country.”

Peifer will oversee the coordination and logistics of the speedway’s fire and safety program with the Dauntless Hook & Ladder Fire Company of Selinsgrove. A direct communication link with Central Susquehanna Communications (911 Unit) has been established for the speedway to dispatch additional emergency, aero-medical, and state police resources if needed.

“My parents were season ticket holders at Selinsgrove Speedway so I’ve had a connection to the track since I was a child,” said Peifer. “I enjoyed volunteering on the fire crew and wanted to share my experience in the industry to make the track’s safety crew the best it can be.”

“My goal is to pull the crew together, give them the tools and training they need to be prepared for any situation they might face, and take Selinsgrove Speedway’s safety program to the next level by using today’s technology to our advantage,” Peifer continued. “We want the drivers, crews, and fans to feel safe when they are at the track.”

For the 2018 season, the safety crew has been outfitted with new helmets purchased by the Selinsgrove Fair Association and a dedicated set of two-way radios provided by the speedway. The new radio system will allow safety crew members to communicate among themselves as well as with track officials.

Selinsgrove Speedway was one of the first dirt tracks in the country with a fully operational Purple-K fire response vehicle thanks to the contributions by Peifer Fire Protection. Purple-K is one of the most effective agents used to extinguish flammable liquid fires such as those that are prone to occur in auto racing.

FRP/Fire & Rescue Products of Harrisburg will continue to provide the speedway’s safety crew with a dedicated “Jaws of Life” unit in the event a driver needs to be extricated from a race car.

Hilly Ridge Sales & Service of Mt. Pleasant Mills provided the speedway with a 2018 Mahindra Retriever for the upcoming season. The all-terrain vehicle has been equipped to serve as an additional Purple-K mobile response unit.

INTENSIVE HANDS-ON FIRE & SAFETY TRAINING DAY CONDUCTED BY EXPERTS
FROM PEIFER FIRE PROTECTION, POCONO RACEWAY, NHRA, FIRE & RESCUE PRODUCTS

MILLERSBUG, Pa. – Todd Peifer, who was recently named Selinsgrove Speedway’s Director of Fire & Safety Services, conducted an intensive hands-on training day March 11 for more than 25 safety crew members at the Peifer Fire Protection, Inc. facility in Millersburg.

Peifer was joined by Dave Richards, Fire Chief at Pocono Raceway; Steve Jeffrey, Fire & Rescue at Pocono Raceway; Tino Gonzalez, Northeast Division Services Coordinator with the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA); and John Brownawell from FRP/Fire & Rescue Products.

The guest speakers gave lectures and provided hands-on training covering race track best practices for fire suppression, rescue equipment operation, extrication, emergency vehicle staging, personal protection and communication, to name a few.

Jim Bernheisel at Bernheisel Race Cars in Lebanon provided late model chassis and Ken Duke Racing of Selinsgrove provided a sprint car chassis for the various training exercises.

“On behalf of Selinsgrove Speedway, we would like to thank Todd and everyone who contributed time and resources to make this an effective and successful training day at Peifer Fire Protection,” said Inch.

Selinsgrove Speedway’s 2018 season opener is slated for 6 p.m. Saturday, April 7, featuring the Mach 1 Chassis 360 sprint cars, Jeff’s Auto Body & Recycling Center super late models, and A&A Auto Stores pro stocks.

Lucas Wolfe Scores First Career Williams Grove Season Opener Sunday

3/11/18

MECHANICSBURG - Lucas Wolfe of Mechanicsburg led from start to finish to pick up the prestigious Williams Grove Speedway season opener for sprint cars on Sunday afternoon.

Wolfe’s first victory in the oval opener was worth $3,600. It was the 18th overall victory of his Williams Grove Speedway career.

The initial start of the 25 lap main for the 410 sprints was red-flagged when Phoenixville’s Brian Montieth vaulted into a series of flips in the second corner after starting 10th.

Montieth escaped injury.

Wolfe then went to work from the pole position to take control in the event ahead of Ohio invader Caleb Helms.

The first 22 laps of the race went non-stop with Wolfe entering lapped traffic on the seventh tour while pulling away.

And by the time the caution flag unfurled with three laps to go, Wolfe had built up a 9.077 second lead over Helms.

The caution flag appeared for a spin in the third turn by Cory Haas, who was running in eighth spot at the time.

As Haas spun backward, defending opening day winner Danny Dietrich made contact with the spinner however he was able to stay under power.

On the restart, another red flag appeared for yet another series of flip, this time as executed by Anthony Macri in the first corner.

Again, there were no injuries.

Ninth starter Greg Hodnett made the most of the final three laps once action resumed, getting by Helms on the final circuit for second.

Hodnett had previously motored inside the top five by getting around Freddie Rahmer and Jason Shultz with five laps to go.

Wolfe took the win by 1.645 seconds over Hodnett with Helms in third followed by Rahmer and Brock Zearfoss.

Sixth through 10th went to Shultz, Danny Dietrich, TJ Stutts, Coleman Gulick and Gerard McIntyre Jr.

Twin heats went to Montieth and Zearfoss.

Feature finish: 1. Lucas Wolfe, 2. Greg Hodnett, 3. Caleb Helms, 4. Freddie Rahmer, 5. Brock Zearfoss, 6. Jason Shultz, 7. Danny Dietrich, 8. TJ Stutts, 9. Coleman Gulick, 10. Gerard McIntyre Jr., 11. Bradley Howard, 12. Troy Fraker, 13. Anthony Macri, 14. Cory Haas, 15. Rick Lafferty, 16. Kody Lehman, 17. Brandon Rahmer, 18. Brian Montieth, 19. Jared Esh

DANNY DIETRICH OUTDUALS WOLFE FOR 39TH CAREER LINCON WIN;

Central PA Legends to join 410 sprint cars for final afternoon show of the season next Saturday, March 17th

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 3/10/2018 – “I think I’d rather forget about last week,” said Danny Dietrich upon exiting his Weikert’s Livestock/Sandoe’s Fruit Market No.48 in victory lane. “It feels good to be standing here today.”

“These guys (crew) put in a lot of hard work over time and so did I. To be good and get a daytime win here (feels real good)…last year it wasn’t over until it was nighttime.”

Fourth-starting Dietrich of Gettysburg followed polesitter and race-long leader Lucas Wolfe through the first half of the 25-lap feature before edging by for the lead at the start-finish line of the 14th lap. The caution waved for a spinning Chris Prior just before they got into the first and second turns, making the pass official even though the lap didn’t count as half the field didn’t cross the line before the caution actually waved. From there Dietrich was able to keep Wolfe behind him the rest of the way to claim his first win of the year and the $3,500 top prize that went with it in the 25-lap 410 sprint car feature at the Fabulous Lincoln Speedway Saturday afternoon.

“His car was really good,” said Dietrich on battle with Lucas Wolfe for the second week in-a-row. “He could really drive through the middle and drive the top pretty good and be pretty stuck.”

“I just felt the bottom was a good place to be. I got down there and stuck to it and made it my preferred line. Down there (turns one and two) you could move around. You could get on top and on bottom. I was just trying to make some moves. He’s got a fast car and he been hard to pass. I really wasn’t sure (if he could pass him).”

For the second straight week, Wolfe started on the pole, and led the first 13 laps before yielding to Dietrich, who had caught second-starting Kyle Moody for the runner-up spot on lap nine. Dietrich chased Wolfe after moving into second place, but was waiting for the right moment to make a bid for the lead. Dietrich found the opportunity exiting the fourth turn on the 14th lap and edged by at the line to complete the lap.

“I knew I just had to get back out”, said Dietrich on trying to wrestle the lead from Wolfe. “At some point in time I knew I had to abort my line and get back out and disturb his air…I’m glad he didn’t get back in front of me. I wasn’t sure I could get back by him. The track was getting pretty narrow all around and I wasn’t sure I could get back around him.”

An 18th lap caution for a spinning Caleb Helms gave Wolfe one last opportunity to retake the lead from Dietrich. But Dietrich was up to the challenge and raced to a 1.215-seconds win in front of Wolfe for his 39th career win at the Pigeon Hills oval.

“I was pretty good before that last caution came out,” revealed Dietrich afterwards. “I didn’t feel like my car was as good after that caution and I wasn’t sure with all the (previous) cautions that my tires were sealing over a little bit or whatever.”

“I had him at the line (just before the caution came out) and who knows if I would have made it through one and two in front of him…I’m just glad to beat him.”

Wolfe settled for second, with third-starting Greg Hodnett finishing third, ninth-starting Brian Monteith fourth, and Moody settling for fifth. Sixth through tenth were tenth-starting Brandon Rahmer, 12th-starting Gerard McIntyre, Jr., 16th-starting Tim Glatfelter, 15th-starting Jim Siegel, and opening day winner Chad Trout.

Heats for the 25 410 Sprints were won by Wolfe, Caleb Helms (who was collected in Freddie Rahmer’s spin on lap 12 of the feature and then spun again in turn two of lap 19), and Cory Haas whose early season woes continued with a spin from his sixth-starting spot at the drop of the green in the first two turns of the feature. Haas did come back through the field to finish 11th.

Next Saturday, March 17th, Lincoln Speedway returns with its final afternoon show, but its first 2-division show, of 2018 with the 410 Sprints being joined by the Central PA Legends. Gates will open at noon, with heats beginning at 2 PM.

By virtue of a top-10 redraw for the feature, Trout started on the outside of the front row to Lucas Wolfe who started on the pole. Wolfe led the opening lap, but, disaster struck for three of the top drivers as Wolfe suddenly slowed in turn 2, leading to a Brian Montieth spin collecting Danny Dietrich in the process. Dietrich and Wolfe were done for the day, handing the lead over to Trout.

From there Trout led the field until second-place invader Cole Duncan ran into the spinning cars of Scott Fisher and Cory Haas in turns three and four of lap five.

Brandon Rahmer caught Kyle Moody for send on the restart and chased him the rest of the way. But Rahmer’s father, Fred, may have unknowingly helped Chad to his first win.

“I saw Fred (Rahmer) walk out on the track, commented Trout about the 21st lap caution. “I slowed up as much as I could, and I saw him motion to Brandon to move up in turn one, so I rolled around the corner and looked at the track, and it was black-slick from the bottom to the top, so I’m like ‘I think I know what he means.’ So I just rolled the outside.

With that, Trout surged out in front on the race’s final restart and led the final nine laps and took the checkered 1.731 seconds in front for his inaugural 410 sprint win.

“All these people back here standing behind the car believe in me,” said Trout upon exiting his Jiffy Lube/Egg Farm No.1X in victory lane. “They believe in me more than I do. I owe it all to them. Jim (Walker) passed away last year, and I wanted to win for him. Randy Oberlander and his wife Steph bought the team and I couldn’t ask for better owners. All the people back here deserve it as much as I do.

At the checkered, Brandon Rahmer settled for second, with Moody third, Gerard McIntyre Jr. fourth, and Greg Hodnett fifth. Sixth through 10th were Freddie Rahmer (Who flipped in warm-ups and made repairs for his heat), Jim Siegle, hard charger Alan Krimes (who started 20th), Tim Glatfelter, and Glenndon Forsythe.

Montieth ended up coming back following the 2nd lap mishap to finish 11th.

“Clean air made a huge difference. These cars handle so different when you’re in traffic. Once I got out there and wasn’t behind any cars, I could run in twice as hard as what I could run it when it was behind cars. If I’d have been in traffic another ten laps, I would have been in trouble.”

Heats for the 20 410 Sprints were won by Danny Dietrich and Greg Hodnett.

“This is a tough sport. Track conditions kinda played in my favor. The wind’s horrible. You drive both ends of the track differently. I’m sure it was hard to pass in traffic. You couldn’t get through lapped cars, and they’re doing what they have to do. If someone would have been right on me, they should have been able to pass me. My crew chief Brandon is doing a great job, and I owe it all to the whole team.

Next Saturday, March 10th, Lincoln Speedway returns with another single-division 410 sprint car show. Then immediately afterwards an open practice session will be held for all regularly-scheduled divisions. Gates open at noon, with qualifying to begin at 2 PM.

GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY TO OPEN. . .

12TH USAC AMSOIL NATIONAL SPRINT CAR SERIES EASTERN STORM THURSDAY, JUNE 14

BECHTELSVILLE, PA – One of the hottest tickets of the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill season, the wingless warriors of the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car Championship kick off their only East Coast tour at Grandview Speedway on Thursday night, June 14. The tradition continues as the Thunder Series opens this wildly popular annual tour.

In 2007, Thunder on the Hill special events promoter, Bob Miller and the Rogers Family, brought the nation’s longest touring Sprint Car group back to Pennsylvania after a nearly 30-year absence from the region.

“I vividly remember USAC being such an integral part of the Reading Fairgrounds history,” Miller recollects. “In some ways, my love of Reading made me so passionate about bringing USAC back to the east coast and specifically back to Berks County at Grandview.”

USAC came back in full force and remains one of the must-see events of the racing season.

Forty Eastern Storm events have been held since the debut of the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car Championship in 2007. Levi Jones and Bryan Clauson are tied with the most wins of Eastern Storm history with six victories each. Five different drivers reached victory lane in 2017 – three for the first time in Storm history -- while Chris Windom went on to win the Eastern Storm Championship.

Heading into the 12th Eastern Storm, the Bechtelsville, PA 1/3-mile dirt track opens the tour with the Jesse Hockett Classic, a 40 lap battle for the non-wing 410 sprint cars. Joining the program will be the popular 358 NASCAR Modifieds. Gates open at 5 PM wit race time set or 7:30 PM. Grandview and Thunder on the Hill are the only facility to have held a USAC event in every year of Eastern Storm history. Defending winner of this event on the hill is Brady Bacon.

The series heads to Mechanicsburg, PA’s Williams Grove Speedway on Friday, June 15, while Port Royal Speedway brings the series into night number three on Saturday, June 16.

York Haven, PA’s Susquehanna Speedway lands on the schedule for the sixth consecutive year, on Sunday, June 17. For the first time, United States Auto Club drivers head to Bridgeport Speedway on Monday, June 18 and the Storm concludes on Tuesday, June 19 at Weedsport Speedway.

Past Eastern Storm winners like Robert Ballou – who swept all three 2015 events, Brady Bacon – who holds wins at Grandview Speedway and Port Royal Speedway, Chad Boespflug, and Chase Stockon are expected for competition.

The Eastern Storm kicks off on Thursday, June 14 with the Jesse Hockett Classic – dedicated to the memory of the 2009 Grandview race winner. Joining the USAC non-wing Sprint Cars are Grandview’s popular 358 Modifieds.

Key sponsors are returning for the 29th season of the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series. Joining NAPA Auto Parts is Pioneer Pole Buildings, Levan Machine and Truck Equipment, Quaker Steak & Lube, GALCO Business Communications and Eli’s Auto Parts.

Advance tickets for the Grandview Speedway USAC/358 Modified event are available by calling 443-513-4456. Callers are required to leave their name, phone number, and the number of tickets requested. Callers can then pick-up and pay for their tickets at the Grandview Speedway’s Will-Call Window after 4 PM. Advance ticket holders may enter the grandstands at 4:30 PM – a full 30 minutes before tickets go on sale to the public.

Grandview Speedway is located at 43 Passmore Road, Bechtelsville, PA just minutes off Route 100.

Williams Grove Speedway to Hold Al Hamilton Tribute Race

Story BY: Justin Snyder

On August 31, 2018, Williams Grove Speedway will host a race honoring one of the area’s most successful owners in Al Hamilton. The Al Hamilton Tribute Race for the 410 Sprint Cars will pay $4770 to the night’s winner and $400 to start.

The event will be a Hoosier Racing Tire Diamond Series race and will feature an extended point fund for the top 5 finishing drivers. Also on the bill for the night will be the 360 Sprint Cars sanctioned by the United Racing Club Series and the Patriot Sprint Tour. The Eastern Museum of Motor Racing will host a display focusing on the many Hamilton owned cars, drivers and history with fans also being treaated to fireworks.

Past drivers will be on hand to honor the famed owner and sign autographs along with possible retro paint schemes to be run for the night’s event.

“As a track that prides ourselves in our history, we feel it very important to honor those who have played an instrumental part in making Williams Grove Speedway the track it is today,” said speedway general manager Justin Loh, “All Hamilton is the winningest car owner in the history of Williams Grove Speedway and it’s an honor to pass on his legacy to our fans and drivers for one night.”

A 2003 Inductee to the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame and Museum, Hamilton and his Red #77 were synonymous with Central PA Sprint Car racing. At Williams Grove specifically Hamilton captured 8 owner track championships, 4 National Open titles and over 80 race victories.

Hamilton first became a 410 Sprint Car owner during the 1967 season after a brief stint as a driver. His first driver was Mus Weyant.

For the next 40 plus season, Hamilton’s car was driven by the who’s who of sprint car racing. Notable drivers to find success in the car throughout the 70’s included Bobby Adamson, Smokey Snellbaker, Jan Opperman, Lynn Paxton, Kramer Williamson and Mitch Smith.

Hamilton stepped away from racing for 6 years in 1976 before returning in 1983 with Paxton at the helm. Paxton would go on to win the Williams Grove National Open that season before retiring. As an owner he finished out the 80’s with over 80 feature victories thanks to Keith Kauffman.

In 1989 Hamilton hired a young Stevie Smith and in 1990 the duo took to the World of Outlaws Tour for 4 ½ seasons, racking up over 40 feature wins and nearly winning the 1993 Knoxville Nationals. Future Outlaw standouts Danny Lasoski, Jeff Sheppard, Johnny Herrera and Joe Gaerte would take turns wheeling the car on the road before Hamilton returned to Central PA in 1996.

Dave Calaman picked up a victory for Hamilton in a brief stint in the car before Fred Rahmer was hired as the driver. Together they became one of the most consistent and powerful forces in Central PA until 2001 where Lance Dewease became his driver.

Current driver of the Heffner Motorsports #27, Greg Hodnett, piloted the #77 for two seasons in 2005 and 2006. After a successful few years in Central PA driving for Bob Stewart and a brief return to the World of Outlaws, it was with Hamilton that Hodnett, a Memphis native, became a full-fledged member of the PA Posse.

“It was a great opportunity to get to drive such a historic car that was not only a large fixture in Central PA racing, but Sprint Car racing as a whole,” said Hodnett. “Getting to be apart of the legacy that is Al Hamilton and strapping into his car, if I wasn’t already looked at as a PA Posse guy, I’d say that just about cemented me as a local. I’ve since made my home in PA and I guess in a way that’s thanks to Al and I’m really proud of my time in the car.”

While winning is always the goal each night Hodnett and his team pull into the pits, it would be an extra special moment if he were to capture the victory in this race.

“One of the coolest moments for me as a driver was driving the Hamilton #77 to victory lane at Williams Grove Speedway on Al’s 77th birthday,” said Hodnett. “His whole family was there and it was just a really special night to end up on the front stretch with that checkered flag and see Al beaming ear to ear.”

“I look back on that moment and how cool it was to be apart of that and it really be a cool moment to take home the victory in honor of him again in this special race.”

Aaron Ott most recently piloted a Hamilton sponsored red #77 car in the 2011 racing season.

General admission prices for the night’s event will be $18 for adults and $10 for youth. More details regarding potential tributes and drivers attending will be released in the near future.

 

 

Williams Grove to Hold Walt Dyer Tribute Race

Central Pennsylvania dirt racing is filled with a lot of history. The list of drivers who have ran a sprint car at one of the various tracks spread throughout the area is filled with the "who's who" of the sport.

Even more impressive is the listing of team owners who have provided the drivers the opportunity to race and the fans the opportunity to cheer on their favorite driver on any given night.

On May 25, 2018, Williams Grove Speedway will host a race honoring one of the area’s most successful owners in Walt Dyer. The Walt Dyer Tribute Race for the 410 Sprint Cars will pay $4610 to the night’s winner and $400 to start.

The event will be a Hoosier Diamond Series race and will feature an extended point fund for the top 5 finishing drivers. Also on the bill for the night will be the PASS IMCA 305 Sprint Cars along with a display from the Eastern Museum of Motor Racing focusing on the many “Brickmobile” cars, drivers and history.

Past drivers will be on hand to honor the famed owner and sign autographs along with possible retro paint schemes to be run for the night’s event.

“As a track that prides ourselves in our history, we feel it very important to honor those who have played an instrumental part in making Williams Grove Speedway the track it is today,” said speedway general manager Justin Loh, “Not only will this race allow us to celebrate what Walt Dyer and what his drivers brought to Central PA racing, but it will allow us to educate the younger generation as well. I think this is a great addition to the schedule for a very worthy man.”

Dyer began owning sprint cars in the area in 1967. His “Brickmobile” Dyer Masonry #461 is one of the most iconic paint schemes to ever run and played host to various drivers throughout a 30 plus year stint before retiring from full-time competition in 1998-99.

No driver accomplished more behind the wheel of the car as Fayetteville’s Lance Dewease. First teaming up in 1991 and racing together for 7 ½ years, Dewease and Dyer captured 132 feature victories. No bigger of a win came than the 1996 World of Outlaws sanctioned Williams Grove National Open where the duo became to only non-outlaw regular to sweep the Outlaws 2 nights that season.

Dewease currently drives the Don Kreitz Jr. owned 69k and has already penciled in the event for their 2018 schedule. He’s credits Dyer with jumpstarting his career and is looking forward to racing in honor of him.

“Walt deserves an event like this. He did a lot for our sport for many years and especially me as a driver,” said Dewease. “When I got in his car, he was taking a big chance on a young kid who didn’t have much of a resume at the time. Without him, I wouldn’t be where I am today.”

Dewease looks back fondly on his time racing for Dyer. With 87 career victories at “The Grove”, he’s 3 short of tying Fred Rahmer for first on the all-time 410 feature winner list. With many of them happening while driving the #461, Dewease would love nothing more than to move one step closer to that feat by taking home the checkered flag that night.

“We were always pretty good wherever we went, but we won a ton of races at Williams Grove during that time period,” said Dewease. “Walt was everything you could ask for in an owner and let me drive the way I wanted and always gave me the equipment I needed to be successful. “

“We were able to build ourselves into a pretty good team in 7 ½ years that I think we ranked among the best in the entire country during our time together. I’m extremely proud of our accomplishments and I’m looking forward to paying tribute that night to a great man. It be a pretty special moment to win that race and I’m really looking forward to the night.”

General admission prices for the night’s event will be $18 for adults and $10 for youth. More details regarding potential tributes and drivers attending will be released in the near future.

 

 

World Series of Dirt Racing Slated For October 11-14

One of the East Coast's Biggest Events - Ever - Coming to Selinsgrove Speedway

Myerstown, PA - The month of October is typically stocked with big, end of the season races. In 2018, there will be a new addition to the list of big money events...and this one will knock your socks off!

Action Track USA's Rich Tobias and Doug Rose are teaming up with Selinsgrove Speedway's Mike Heffner to present the first World Series of Dirt Track Racing from October 11 - 14, and it will be contested on the big, fast Selinsgrove half-mile as well as the smaller Selinsgrove Raceway Park.

This monster event will be a dirt racing fan's dream, as practically every division that competes on clay will be part of the World Series of Dirt Track Racing. Three different classes of Sprint Cars - 410's, 360's, and the 305's - will be on the docket along with the USAC All Pro SpeedSTRs, the 602 Modifieds, the Super Late Models, and Street Stocks. And, in an unprecedented venture, Tobias, Rose, and Heffner are also adding the AMA Flat Track Motorcycles to the mega-card of motorsports merriment.

While the big cars and bikes will do battle on the ultra fast half mile oval, the immensely popular small car divisions have not been forgotten by the organizers of the WSoDR. Friday and Saturday night, October 12 & 13, will see the Action Track USA Hyper Racing 600 Sprints, All Star Slingshots, and Junior Slingshots competing on the racey bullring known as Selinsgrove Raceway Park on the inside of the big track.

Tobias and Rose envision more than 300 cars in the pits and on the speedway's during the course of the weekend. The total purse will be well over $100,000, with big dollars on the line for each division. "With the money that will be up for grabs and all the different classes in action during the weekend, fans can expect to see many of the top names in local and national motorsports," said Rose. "And we're certain that several drivers will take advantage of this unique opportunity to enter multiple classes."

Enhancements to the facility are already underway, with many of the projects geared toward next October's World Series of Dirt Racing. For example, the infield will not only be ready to accept fans for the first time, but camping will also be permitted in the spacious infield during the weekend extravaganza.

The tentative schedule for the WSoDR will have various activities occurring day and night for fans' enjoyment. Thursday, October 11 is move-in day for campers and competitors. On Friday the 12th, the Super Late Models, 360 Sprints, and SpeedSTRs will qualify, as will the AMA Motorcycles. Those divisions will race on Saturday afternoon, as all of the weekend's activity on the half-mile oval will take place from noon to 5 p.m. One of Saturday's highlights will be the World Series 100 for the SpeedSTRs, featuring live pit stops and a $9,000 paycheck going to the winner.

Following Saturday afternoon's competition, the 602 Modifieds, Street Stocks, and 305 Sprint Cars will qualify. They will race, along with the 410 Sprint Cars, on Sunday afternoon.

As mentioned, the wingless 600 Sprints, All Star Slingshots, and Junior Slingshots will spray the clay on Friday and Saturday evening on the competitive Selinsgrove Raceway Park bullring. These events will permit fans and other racers to sit back and enjoy some intense wheel-to-wheel action presented by the stars of tomorrow and the very best throttle-jockeys in their respective divisions.

Additional information regarding this colossal event will be released in the coming weeks and months as details are finalized. Stay tuned to the Selinsgrove Speedway website and the World Series of Dirt Facebook page.

SELINSGROVE, Pa. -- Former late model champion Steve Campbell of Danville has been named Selinsgrove Speedway’s lead technical inspector, effective immediately, for the upcoming 2018 season.

“While we’re going to miss seeing Steve in weekly super late model competition we’re excited to have him and his wife Denise continue to be a part of the Selinsgrove Speedway family in this new capacity,” said track general manager Steve Inch. “Steve is one of the most knowledgeable people in the racing industry and he will do a great job as the track’s head tech inspector.”

For the past two seasons, Campbell has been the tech inspector at Clinton County Motor Speedway in Lock Haven.

The 2018 rules for the speedway’s weekly divisions—360 sprint cars, super late models, pro stocks, and roadrunners—have been posted to selinsgrovespeedway.com. To reach Campbell with questions, please email tech1@selinsgrovespeedway.com.

Campbell announced his semi-retirement from competition driving at the end of the 2017 season. He plans to compete periodically in limited late models next year.

One of the most accomplished stock car drivers in central Pennsylvania, Campbell’s racing career at Selinsgrove includes two super late model track championships in 1995 and 1999 plus a 1983 championship in limited late model racing. He’s ranked fourth on the speedway’s all-time super late model win list with 49 career victories and remains on top of the limited late model chart with 36 wins.

Selinsgrove Speedway is tentatively scheduled to open the 2018 season in early April.

MONTIETH CLAIMS SIXTH TRACK CHAMPIONSHIP IN LINCOLN 410 SPRINTS;

Adrian Shaffer earns first Lincoln title in 358 sprint division

YORK, PA, 11/18/17 - Lincoln Speedway track champions were recognized and special year-end awards were handed out at the Wyndham Garden York Hotel Saturday night, November 18th. The top ten finishers in the season-long point series for both sprint car divisions were recognized and special awards were distributed in the annual awards banquet, which officially closed the 2017 racing season.

MONTIETH WINS TWICE TO CLAIM SIXTH LAWRENCE CHEVROLET TRACK CHAMPIONSHIP

Phoenixville’s Brian Montieth rode the strength of two wins and 15 top-ten finishes in 21 races to claim his sixth Lincoln track title. His second win of the season came on July 29th, continuing his climb to legendary status, when he came from 12th starting spot to win the non-stop feature. In true Montieth fashion, it included a thrilling three-car pass from fourth to first in one lap.

When reminded that it was his 55th career Lincoln win, pulling him to within one of the great Bobby Abel for fifth on the all-time win list, Montieth said, “That something that 30 years ago, I would never even have thought of. Thirty-five years ago, I didn’t even know this place existed!”

Thirteen of those 15 top-ten finishes were actually top fives. Montieth is currently the winningest active driver at Lincoln. His sixth title is third to only Fred Rahmer (11) and Steve Smith (9). Montieth’s title also earned Scott Zellers Lincoln’s mechanic of-the-year award.

2014 and 2016 track champ Alan Krimes scored five top-five finishes and 12 top-ten finishes to stay close enough in points to take the season championship down to the final week and secure a runner-up finish.

Montieth and Krimes have traded track titles the past five years, and Krimes has finished second in season points several times.

It was quite a year for Dover’s Chad Trout, who was extremely consistent to finish third in season points. Despite losing popular car owner Jimmy Walker, who passed away during mid-season, Trout scored two top-five and 13 top-ten finishes to edge out Jim Siegel by a mere 20 points and Freddie Rahmer by 25 points at season’s end.

Though Trout and Siegel both went winless on the season, 2017 Williams Grove champ Freddie Rahmer won twice.

Sixth through tenth in season points were Cory Haas, Tim Glatfelter, Gerard McIntyre, Jr. (whose lone win came on April 8th), Glenndon Forsythe (who won on John Gleim Excavating Night July 15th and scored his first career All-Star win on August 19th), and Brandon Rahmer.

Lincoln’s winningest driver in 2017 was Danny Dietrich, who crossed under the checkers seven times, including the first two shows of the year, Weldon Sterner Memorial April 29th, National Fallen Firefighters Night June 10th, and Kevin Gobrecht Memorial Pennsylvania Speedweek show on July 1st.

Despite missing a few shows to do some traveling, Dietrich still finished 11th in season points.

First-time Lincoln winners during the 2017 season included David Gravel (World of Outlaw win on May 17th), Anthony Macri (June 3rd), and Kyle Larson (Pennsylvania Speedweek winner on July 3rd), who competed at Lincoln while leading the Monster Energy NASCAR point series at the time.

Other Lincoln wins in 2017 were recorded by Lucas Wolfe (two wins) and single-race winners Lance Dewease (who claimed the $20,000 top prize in the “Dirt Classic”) and J.J. Grasso (who won the season finale).

Anthony Macri was voted by track officials as the most improved driver for 2017, with Glenndon Forsythe awarded the annual Harry Fletcher Sportsmanship Award. Cole Young, who moved up to the 410 sprints from the 358s after a year off, received the rookie of-the-year award.

All told, there were 11 different winners in 21 races at Lincoln in 2017.

SPECIAL AWARDS WINNERS (410 Sprints)

Super Sprint Champion – Brian Montieth

Mechanic of the Year – Scott Zellers

Rookie of the Year – Cole Young

Most Improved Driver – Glenndon Forsythe

Harry Fletcher Sportsmanship Award – Anthony Macri

ADRIAN SHAFFER CLAIMS FIRST-EVER LINCOLN SPEEDWAY KEIZER ALUMINUM WHEELS TRACK CHAMPIONSHIP

Despite not winning a race, Hallam’s Adrian Shaffer claimed his first track title in Lincoln’s 358 sprint car division. Shaffer was consistent throughout the year, leading the division with 14 top-ten finishes and eight top-fives in 17 races.

An exciting season-long points chase would likely have gone down to the final week had Doug Hammaker not been injured in a post-race crash on the next-to-last event of the year, dropping him from a close second to sixth in the final points tally.

Single race winner Brent Shearer finished second in season points, with five top-five and nine top-ten finishes.

Third through fifth in season points were separated by only 30 points, with two of the drivers tied for fourth.

Finished third was Todd Rittenhouse, Jr., with Matt Findley and Cody Fletcher tied in fourth. None of the three won a race in 2017.

Doug Hammaker settled for sixth in season points. He was one of four drivers to win twice during the season.

He was followed by Dalton Dietrich, Harry Fletcher Sportsmanship Award winner Phil Walter (a one time winner), and lady drivers Brie Hershey (a one-time winner) and Ashley Cappetta (voted the 358 sprint most improved driver of the year).

Defending track champ Chandler Leiby missed a few weeks due to vacation and injury, did score one win during the year, and finished 11th in season points.

Drivers who picked up their first Lincoln career wins in 2017 were Jordan Givler and Lincoln rookie of-the-year Steve Wilbur.

Two-time winners included Chris Arnold (back-to-back wins in June), Jeff Halligan, and Todd Gracey. Other ’17 winners were Dwight Leppo, Kevin Nouse, and Chase Dietz (season finale).

All told, there were 13 different winners in 17 events. It took 11 shows for Lincoln to see its first repeat winner in 2017.

SPECIAL AWARDS WINNERS (358 Sprints)

358 Sprint Champion – Adrian Shaffer

Rookie of the Year – Steve Wilbur

Most Improved Driver – Ashley Cappetta

Harry Fletcher Sportsmanship Award – Phil Walter

In the Jeff’s Auto Body & Recycling Center super late models, Tony Adams of Sunbury and Hayes Mattern of Beavertown were named co-champions when they tied for the title in the final points race of the season Aug. 26

For Adams, the championship was the second of his career at Selinsgrove with one victory and 8 top five finishes. Mattern became the first driver to win a championship in karting at Selinsgrove Raceway Park and advance to Selinsgrove’s half-mile track and clinch a super late model title. Mattern had a break-out season with 7 top five finishes, including three feature wins.

Tommy Slanker of York clinched his first career A&A Auto Stores pro stock title with seven feature wins, the most of any driver in any division at the track this season. Slanker became the 13th different driver to win a championship in 20 years of pro stock racing at Selinsgrove.

Keith Bissinger of Orangeville and Will Brunson of Middleburg were also co-champions in the Collier Paving/A&A Auto Stores roadrunner division when they too tied in the final points race of the year. Bissinger clinched his fifth career title without a victory this season, while Brunson scored his first championship along with his first career win in his rookie season.

Michael Thomas of Emmaus clinched the 358 sprint car challenge series title.

Rookie of the Year awards went to Justin Whittall of Southampton Lane, N.J. (sprint cars); Nathan Long of Middleburg (late models); Shaun Lawton of Bloomsburg (pro stocks); and Will Brunson of Middleburg (roadrunners). Jim Collier of Shamokin received the Joe Whitcomb Memorial Sportsman of the Year award.

This year’s dual point championship ties marked only the fourth and fifth times for ties in Selinsgrove Speedway history. The last points championship tie at the track occurred in 2000 between 410 sprint car drivers Todd Shaffer and Keith Kauffman. The sprint car division also had a championship tie in 1964 between Dick Tobias and Leroy Felty. The late model division's only other title tie was in 1980 between Dale Kerstetter and Bob Smith.

On hand to accept a special recognition award in appreciation for his dedication to the future of auto racing at Selinsgrove Speedway was Gary Greiner, member of the Selinsgrove Fair Association.

LANCE DEWEASE WINS SPRINT SHOWDOWN AT SUSQUEHANNA

Chase Dietz Gets Second 358 Sprint Win By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA…10/28/17

Lance Dewease survived some mid-race drama with Logan Schuchart before capturing the big $5,000 payday in Saturday’s 30-lap BAPS Auto Paints and Supplies 410 Sprint Showdown at Susquehanna Speedway.

The event closed the curtain on the 2017 racing season at Susquehanna and in Central Pennsylvania.

Chase Dietz dominated the 25-lap 358 Sprint car feature for his second win of the season.

After setting quick time and winning the Dash, World of Outlaws regular Logan Schuchart took control of the 410 Sprint car feature as Joey Saldana settled into the runner-up spot.

As Schuchart set the pace, a lap four incident brought out a yellow flag when contact was made between Danny Dietrich and Greg Hodnett that also collected Freddie Rahmer and Cory Haas. Heavy damage to Hodnett’s car sidelined him for the day as was Dietrich and Rahmer.

On the restart, Anthony Fiore brought out a red flag after flipping.

Saldana got high on the restart allowing Lucas Wolfe and Dewease by as Dewease began his charge to the front after starting sixth.

Dewease made the race winning pass on Schuchart with 14 laps complete but action got heated when Schuchart attempted to get back around Dewease but ran over the front end causing front wing damage to the Kreitz Racing 69K machine. After some dramatics while the field was under caution, Schuchart pitted with a flat tire and rejoined the rear of the field.

Despite the damage, Dewease was able to keep Saldana at bay for the remainder of the event to score his 19th career Susquehanna win, 13th overall this season and second of the year at the York Haven oval.

Saldana finished second ahead of Wolfe, ninth starting Brock Zearfoss and 10th starting Brian Montieth with Mark Smith earning the Hard Charger coming from 18th to sixth ahead of Anthony Macri, Haas from the rear of the field, Brandon Rahmer and Schuchart.

Schuchart set fast time over the 30 car field with a lap of 15.655 seconds while heat races were won by Dewease, Ryan Smith and Dietrich. Brett Michalski won the consolation.

Dave Brown, Jr. led the first two laps of the 358 Sprint car main before Dietz took control and never looked back.

A late race red for a flip by Jake Eldreth would close the field on the Spring Grove racer but he was not to be denied the win as he took the checkered flag.

Brent Shearer raced by Kevin Nouse on the final turn to steal the runner-up finish with Nouse, who started 12th settling for third over Chris Frank and 10th starter Brett Wanner with Cody Fletcher earning the Hard Charger after starting 20th, Tyler Ross, Mike Bittinger, Troy Wagaman, Jr. and Brown completing the top ten.

Nouse, Wanner and Eldreth won heats for the 31 car field. CJ Tracy was the consolation race winner.

Zearfoss, Hodnett And Bishop Close Port Royal Season With Wins

10/21/17

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – With over 80 sprint cars in the pit area, Port Royal Speedway capped off the highly successful 2017 season on Saturday night with Brock Zearfoss, Greg Hodnett and Austin Bishop claiming the 410 sprint, URC sprint and 305 sprint mains, respectively.

In the 25-lap 410 sprint main, polesitter Dylan Cisney beat Brock Zearfoss into the first turn only to see Zearfoss take the lead as the pair shot onto the backchute.

The reigning 2017 track champion, Zearfoss of Jonestown set a blistering pace around the oval during the early going, entering the backmarkers on the seventh tour with Cisney and fourth starter Danny Dietrich in tow.

At the halfway point, Zearfoss had a 1.1 second lead over Cisney as the race for second heated up between Cisney and Dietrich.

After repeated attempts, Dietrich was able to secure second spot and complete lap 18 just before the only caution flag of the race unfurled for a stopped Kody Lehman.

Dietrich followed Zearfoss high into the first corner when action resumed and then made his swooping attempt for the lead as the pair shot into the third turn.

However the Gettysburg driver came up short of completing his slide job attempt in the fourth turn and instead settled into second, where he would finish.

The $4,000 victory was the fifth of the season at the Port Royal oval for Zearfoss who took the checkers by a 1.926 second advantage.

Anthony Macri of Dillsburg rode home a fine third followed by Cisney and Jason Shultz.

Sixth through 10th went to 18th starter Greg Hodnett, Lucas Wolfe, Steve Buckwalter, Davey Sammons and Cory Haas.

Heats went to Macri, Zearfoss, Justin Barger and Shultz in what was two rounds of heats for each of two heat groups.

Lucas Wolfe led the first lap of the 25-lap URC sprint main before fourth starter Chad Layton took over and entered lapped traffic on the sixth tour.

Greg Hodnett started seventh in the field and bolted to the front of the race with lightning speed during the early going, up to third with five laps recorded.

As Layton worked through traffic, Hodnett rapidly closed the gap on the two leaders before pulling off a high-flying two-car pass of both Wolfe and Layton for position plus at least one backmarker in the third and fourth turns of the ninth lap.

And once at the front, Hodnett drove off from the field only to be slowed by the caution flag with nine laps to go.

Wolfe got a clean shot on the restart only to see Hodnett drive off before another yellow with six laps to go again bunched the field.

Another restart produced the same result with Hodnett staying out front only this time 10th starter Brock Zearfoss motored by Wolfe into second before trying to run down the pacesetter.

Zearfoss did his best to close the gap but came up short at the finish by .537 seconds.

Wolfe was third followed by Curt Michael and Mark Smith.

Sixth through 10th went to Jason Shultz, Justin Barger, 21st starter Chuck Hebing, Layton and Josh Weller.

Heats went to Wolfe, Hodnett, Chris Coyle and Barger with Hebing scoring the consolation race.

With the win, Hodnett scored $2,000 and also swept both URC events held at Port Royal in 2017.

Austin Bishop of Elverson wired the 20-lap 305 sprint main with a flag to flag performance.

The only caution of the race took place with just one lap to go and it produced a wild final lap and a four-car race for the win back to the line.

Jeff Miller restarted second with Nate Gramley and 12th starter Kyle Smith following and Miller went for the lead when action resumed.

But Bishop moved down to block his advance on the backstretch and Miller climbed his tail tank before jerking sideways toward the inside fence and then somehow saving the car.

This bottled up Gramley and allowed Smith to motor by both he and Miller during the final half lap.

Miller crossed the line in third followed by Gramley and Cale Riegle.

Sixth through 10th went to Dylan Shatzer, Nick Sweigart, Kassidy Kreitz, Scott Lutz and Drew Ritchey.

Heats went to Miller, Shatzer and Smith with the consolation race going to Brad Mellott.

KYLE SMITH RECORDS FIRST SUSQUEHANNA 305 SPRINT WIN
Zechman, Beard, Powell and Carroll All Score First Wins of Season
By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA…10/14/17
It’s been a good two weeks in Central Pennsylvania for South Egremont, Massachusetts racer Kyle Smith.

The young driver dominated Saturday night’s 20-lap Freedmont® Mortgage Lending PASS/IMCA Sprint car feature at Susquehanna Speedway as he visited victory lane for the first time ever at the York Haven oval. Smith’s Susky win backs up his big win a week earlier in IMCA Sprint action at nearby Port Royal.

Four first time season winners also emerged Saturday night as Bobby Beard won the Bernheisel Race Cars 358 Late Models, Randy Zechman took the win in the Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stocks, Bill Powell won the Superior Homes Extreme Stocks and Robbie Carroll got the win in the Road Warriors.

Starting on the pole aboard his No. 17NY Sprint, Smith dominated the event that saw him pull away to a 2.765 margin of victory. Two early race cautions was all that kept the field close as Smith became the eighth different winner in the nine 305 Sprint car mains in 2017.

Darren Miller chased Smith the entire distance and settled for second over Dave Grube, Ken Duke, Jr. and Billy Ney with Jaremi Hanson, 2017 Susquehanna track champion Zach Newlin, Rick Stief, Colby Dice and Stephanie Dodson completing the top ten finishers.

Kyle Ganoe, Andrew Hake and Miller were heat winners for the 25 cars.

Donnie Hendershot was the Artwerks Hard Charger coming from 18th to 12th.

Brian Shuey led the first 11 laps of the 20-lap BRC 358 Late Model main when sixth-starting Bobby Beard took control.

Once out front, it was all Beard as he pulled away from the field to post his first win of the year by 2.968 seconds. He became the 11th different winner this season in late model action.

Shuey, Eric Hohol, 2017 track champion Randy Christine, Jr and Sean Merkel finished in the top five trailed by Steve Billet, Tim Murphy, Dan Zechman, Steve Todorow and Taylor Farlling. Murphy was Artwerks Hard Charger.

Hohol and Beard were heat winners for the 15-car field.

It was all Randy Zechman in the 20-lap Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Poos Street Stock feature after taking the lead with nine laps complete.

Mike Buckley led lap one before Kyle Saylor took the lead and held that point until fifth starting Zechman took over.

Zechman drove away taking checkered flag by 4.202 seconds for his first win of the year and 12th different division winner.

Jim Palm came from eighth to finish second ahead of Saylor, Mike Potts and Kevin Sigler with Jimmy Combs, Brad Bingaman, Elvin Brennan, Howard Williams and Matt Wampler completing the top ten.

With his 11th place finish, division sponsor Craig Morgan captured the 2017 Street Stock track championship.

Heats for the 19 cars were won by Buckley and Zechman.

Bill Powell emerged with his first career Susquehanna win and 100th career overall win as he was in the right place at the right time in the Superior Homes Extreme Stock feature.

Racing third as the white flag flew, Powell had a front row seat when 2017 track champion Alex Updegraff got into Kyle Emig, who led laps 2 through 19 and spun him. The two raced side by side for half of the race but the contact put both to the back as Powell held on for the win on the final lap over Patrick McClane, Travis Horan, 13th starting and Artwerks Hard Charger John Frye and Jeff Gill were the top five.

Johnny Palm and Emig won heats for the 19 Extreme Stocks.

Robbie Carroll led all 15 laps to win the Road Warrior feature over Travis Brown, Kyle Rohrbaugh, Ryan Underkoffler and Justin Dashler.

Schatz Tames Port Royal For 19th Outlaws Win Of Season, Second Career At Oval

10/14/17

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Eight-time World of Outlaws champion Donny Schatz of Fargo, Nd., tamed Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night, scoring his second career oval victory, worth $10,000 after holding off Lance Dewease to the finish.

In the 25-lap Mid Atlantic Modified main it was Mike Altobelli scoring the $1,000 victory.

Reigning 2017 track champion Brock Zearfoss started on the pole of the 30-lap World of Outlaws main for sprint cars flanked by Jason Sides with Schatz starting in third and Dewease starting in ninth spot.

Zearfoss of Jonestown took the lead at the start over Sides however Schatz motored into second on the third lap as Zearfoss held a 1.669 second lead.

Alone out front, Zearfoss was setting a blistering pace and entered the rear of the field on the seventh tour with Schatz in tow and Dewease up to fourth.

Zearfoss worked his way through traffic in fine fashion over the next seven laps and was keeping Schatz at bay, still holding a one second lead when the races first caution flag unfurled on the 14th tour for a stopped Logan Schuchart.

Zearfoss chose the inside lane for the double file restart with Schatz in second and Dewease restarting third with Brad Sweet in fourth.

And Zearfoss turned in a great restart when action resumed, outracing Schatz into the first corner and turning back a slide job attempt by Schatz for the lead.

However racing close with Schatz, nose to tail at times, proved hard to handle for Zearfoss as the pair raced into the second half of the race and on the 18th tour when Zearfoss entered in the middle in the first turn, leaving the top lane open, that was all Schatz needed to blast into control.

Moments after taking the lead, on the 19th lap, the second caution flag of the race appeared regrouping the pack, this time finding Schatz choosing the inside pin for the restart.

Dewease blasted into second on the restart, coming up .67 seconds behind Schatz at the line with 10 to go but was then outdistanced by Schatz during the waning laps before a final yellow flag set up a dramatic finish.

When green reappeared, Schatz went high into the first turn and Dewease blasted in low, going out in front briefly as he let the car slide up across the track to get command.

However Schatz would later credit Dewease with allowing just enough room for him to jet back by as the pair shot out of the second turn and that sealed the deal for Schatz, who went on to pick up his 19th overall checkers of the season by .792 seconds ahead of Dewease.

After starting 10th, Daryn Pittman finished on the podium in third followed by Sweet and Johnson.

Sixth through 10th went to Dave Blaney, Danny Dietrich, Sheldon Haudenschild, Jac Haudenschild and David Gravel.

Heats for the 40-car field went to Jason Johnson, Sheldon Haudenschild, Sweet and Schatz with Tony Stewart claiming the B Main and Zearfoss winning the dash.

Overall fast time in qualifications was set by Jason Johnson with a lap time of 15.704 seconds, an average speed of 114.162 mph.

Rick Hulson led the first six laps of the Mid Atlantic Modified main before Mike Altobelli took over to speed to the victory.

Hulson would finish second with Dan Davies ending up third.

By finishing fourth in the main, Brad Kling secured the 2017 Mid Atlantic Modified series title.

Heats for the mods went to Mike Corbin and Altobelli.

World Of Outlaws Sprints Invade Port Royal Speedway Saturday

Juniata County Duel At Port Royal To Close 2017 PA Posse Vs. Outlaws Rivalry

10/8/17

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Port Royal Speedway will present the World of Outlaws Craftsman sprint car series coming up this Saturday, October 14 at 5 pm.

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

The show will be the final appearance of the outlaws travelers in the Keystone State, pitting the locals known as the PA Posse against the World of Outlaws stars.

The Mid Atlantic Modifieds are also on the program, competing in a 25-lap, $1,000 to win feature event.

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

One year ago in World of Outlaws sprint car action at Port Royal Speedway, Pennsylvania outlaws driver Logan Schuchart took the lead on a lap two restart from Lucas Wolfe to pocket the $10,000 loot in front of his home state fans.

Greg Hodnett was second with Donny Schatz finishing third last year.

Lance Dewease has been the hottest driver of the year at Port Royal along with track champion Brock Zearfoss.

Dewease has invaded and won the biggest shows of the season at the track including the recently contested, prestigious $50,000 to win 50th Annual Tuscarora 50.

Dewease has taken six wins alone at Port Royal this year while track titlist Brock Zearfoss took four including a sweep of the month of August.

Zearfoss beat the outlaws at Williams Grove Speedway in July.

Connecticut’s David Gravel, who has been the winningest driver on the circuit of late, will lead the outlaws into Port Royal on Saturday.

On October 7, Gravel pocketed his 17th circuit win of the year for the CJB Motorsports No. 5 team.

Gravel recently took two of three events in the Williams Grove Speedway National Open including the 50K to win finale.

Of course perennial World of Outlaws series champion Donny Schatz is right up there this year, currently leading series points with 18 wins over Brad Sweet and Gravel, who is third in points.

Sweet was a Port Royal WoO victor in 2015.

Reserved seats for this year’s show are available for the price of $35, regardless of age, (which includes the price of general admission) in the following aluminum grandstand sections and rows:

Sections A – G, Rows 6 – 19

Freddie Rahmer And Kevin Nouse Earn Williams Grove Speedway Sprint Titles

10/8/17

Mechanicsburg – Williams Grove Speedway closed its 2017 racing season on October 6 having crowned its season champions in both the Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint car division and the HJ Towing & Recovery 358 sprint car division.

At the age of 21, young Freddie Rahmer of Salfordville became the youngest driver to claim a Williams Grove Speedway track title since Bobby Davis Jr. accomplished the feat at age 20 back in 1983 while driving for Bob Weikert.

It was Rahmer’s first ever title at the oval.

A three-time winner at the track in 2017, Freddie Rahmer now joins his father and car owner, Fred Rahmer on the prestigious Williams Grove Speedway all time championship win list.

The elder Rahmer earned nine career oval track titles as a pilot himself and now owns a total of 10 including his first as a car owner in 2017.

Rahmer and Dave Pritchard will share car owner laurels for 2017.

Freddie Rahmer also earned the 2017 Williams Grove Diamond Series title at the track, earning the most points in the oval series comprised of some of the most special events the track offers during the year.

His father was a two-time Diamond Series champion during his career.

In the 358 sprint division, Mechanicsburg’s Kevin Nouse recently wrapped up the 2017 track title.

The title was the fourth of Nouses’s career at the track after also taking titles in 2013, 2014 and in 2016.

The 2017 title puts Knouse in pretty elite company as only one other driver has won more Williams Grove titles with Pat Cannon having earned a total of five 358 sprint crowns.

Like Nouse, Cory Haas earned four during his tenure in the limited sprints.

Nouse took one oval victory in 2017.

Special awards in the 358 sprints went to Troy Wagaman Jr. as Most Improved Driver, Brie Hershey for Sportsmanship and Brett Wanner as Rookie of the Year.

In the 410 sprint ranks, special awards went to Anthony Macri as Rookie of the Year, Troy Fraker for Sportsmanship, Matt Campbell as Most Improved and Mechanic of the Year went to Freddie Rahmer for wrenching his own mount to the 2017 track title.

The 2018 season opener at Williams Grove Speedway has been determined to be a 410 sprints only program, taking place on a Sunday afternoon in March.

KENNY EDKIN DOMINATES FINAL SUPER SPORTSMAN RACE OF SEASON Potts, Dove and Montgomery All Get Second Susky Wins By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA…10/7/17 Kenny Edkin put an exclamation point on his breakout season by dominating Saturday night’s 40-lap Fall Harvest King of the Hill presented by Hessiron.com Super Sportsman feature at Susquehanna Speedway.

Edkin’s division leading sixth win of the season came in the season finale for the Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman

Other winners on the warm October race night included Charles Potts in the Bernheisel Race Cars 358 Late Models, Lucas Montgomery in the ServiceMaster Clean Central PA Legends and Steve Dove in the Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stocks. Dove was rewarded the street stock win after actual winner Randy Zechman was disqualified after failing post race inspection.

Veteran Rich Eichelberger set the pace for the first three laps of the Harvest Classic before slowing on the speedway to bring out the first of eight caution flags during the main event.

This turned the lead over to 2017 track champion Scott Dellinger who would hold the point until the 10th lap when eighth starting Edkin drove by to take the top spot.

Edkin, of Marysville, pulled away from Dellinger but was kept at bay with all of the yellows but each time, Edkin showed strength by extending his lead.

The final caution of the race flew on lap 32 as Edkin pulled away to a 2.320 second advantage at the checkered flag aboard his family owned No. 75.

Dellinger crossed second ahead of Sportsman 100 winner Frankie Herr, Chad Criswell and 11th starting Gregg Foster with Steve Fannasy, Chase Gutshall, Mike Enders, Garrett Williamson and Justin Foster completing the top ten.

Enders set fast time over the 27 car field in time trials with a lap of 18.656 while heats were won by Dellinger, Edkin and Fannasy. Justin Foster earned the Hard Charger after starting 17th.

Eric Hohol led the first two laps of the 20-lap BRC 358 Late Model feature before spinning out.

Charles Potts took command after starting second and would hold the lead but it was Dan Zechman who came on strong during the final laps to make this one a thriller as Potts raced around the inside of the track while Zechman pounded the top looking for the lead.

But Potts would prevail by a scant 0.169 of a second for his second win of the year over Zechman. Track point leader Randy Christine, Jr. crossed a distant third over Bryan Bernheisel, Brian Shuey, JR Rodriguez, Jake Moser, Steve Billet, Sean Merkel and Jed Latshaw, the race’s Hard Charger after lining up 20th.

Christine, Zechman and Shuey won heats for the 21 car field.

Randy Zechman dominated the caution-marred 20 lap Street stock main and crossed first but after failing post race inspection, Steve Dove was rewarded with his second feature win of the year.

Defending track champion Mike Potts was second over ninth starting Jimmy Combs, 12th starting Joey Hoffer and 15th starting and Hard Charger Kyle Saylor competing the top five. Rounding out the top 10 were Brandon Wanner, Kevin Sigler, Matt Adams, Brad Bingaman and Scott Thunberg.

Heats for the 21 street stocks were won by Mike Buckley and Zechman.

Ninth-starting Lucas Montgomery came away with the win in the thrilling 20-lap ServiceMaster Clean Central PA Legends feature.

Harlon Leppo led the first 13 laps before Montgomery took the lead as he then had to fend off late race challenges from Haydon Pascoe before taking the win, 0.214 seconds ahead of Pascoe with Leppo crossing just 0.428 seconds back in third. Fourth went to Scott Houdeshell over 12th starting Mason Chaney.

Susquehanna Speedway returns to action Saturday night, October 14 with final appearance of the season for the Freedmont® Mortgage Lending PASS/IMCA Sprints and the Bernheisel Race Cars 358 Late Models. Joining these two divisions will be the Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stocks, Superior Homes Extreme Stocks and the Road Warriors. Racee time is 6PM.

Kyle Smith Comes From Massachusetts For Port Royal 305 Blue Collar Classic Win

Stock cars go to Weaver, Renninger and Chronister

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

10/7/17

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Kyle Smith of South Egremont, Massachusetts, scored the big victory in the sixth annual Port Royal Speedway Blue Collar Classic for the IMCA Keystone RaceSaver 305 sprint cars on Saturday night.

Smith surged during the final five laps to drive down leader Tyler Reeser and swoop past for the $1,350 win in the final two turns of the 25-lap feature event.

The 20-lap Mason Dixon Shootout limited late model main was taken by Justin Weaver after Weaver also made a late race pass for the victory.

The make-up Butch Renninger Memorial for xtreme stocks went to local driver Herm Renninger after he led 17 laps of the main and the four cylinder main was scored by Matt Chronister.

Nearly 140 cars filled the pits for action in the big October event.

Polesitter Nick Sweigart led only the first lap of the Blue Collar Classic for the 305 sprint cars before Tyler Reeser took over.

In a race for the track title, Reeser tried pulling away after he got to the front while point leader Jeff Miller battled into third spot behind Darren Miller.

Reeser hit the halfway point of the race with a .7 second lead over Darren Miller and Jeff Miller and then just as Jeff Miller put a move on for second with 10 laps to go, he lost control and spun the car in the fourth corner, ending his title hopes.

The restart saw 12th starter Kyle Smith taking the green from fourth spot and Smith raced up to third when action resumed.

With five laps to go, Reeser still had a .898 second lead over Darren Miller however Smith was clearly getting faster during the final stages, using great runs off of the cushion on the second corner to gain ground.

He took second with three laps to go and then ran down the leader to duck to his inside in the third and fourth turns as the leaders headed toward the finish line.

Smith was able to come out of turn four as the leader with Reeser glued to his tail back to the checkers.

Smith’s margin of victory was a scant .080 seconds.

Reeser ended up second and recorded the 2017 Creasy Signs Port Royal 305 Sprint Series track title.

Darren Miller was third followed by Nick Sweigart and Ken Duke Jr.

Sixth through 10th went to Zach Newlin, Jeff Geiges, Drew Ritchey, Scott Lutz and Jeff Miller.

Heats for the 57-car field went to Reeser, Dylan Schatzer, Darren Miller, Kyle Smith, Sydney Prince and Jeff Miller.

Twin consolations went to Austin Bishop and Greg Dobrosky with Tim Tanner Jr. setting fast time with a lap of 18.307 seconds.

Kyle Ganoe led all 15 laps of the Founders Cup non-qualifiers race for the 305 sprints to earn a guaranteed starting spot in the 2018 Blue Collar Classic main.

James Lichliter led the first 16 laps of the limited late model main over fourth starter Justin Weaver.

But Weaver’s bottom groove came in as the race wore into the late stages and with three laps to go, Weaver drove into control for the $1,000 victory.

Lichliter rode home second followed by George Dixon, Derrick Garman and Jim Yoder.

Heats went to Lichliter, Garman, Dillan Stake and Dixon. Andrew Stotler took the consolation race.

Herm Renninger took control from Bob Bussey on the third lap to speed to the Renninger Memorial xtreme stock main.

Bill Powell raced into second on a lap four restart and ended up finishing second and scoring the 2017 Juniata Junction xtreme stock track title.

Kevin Imes rode home third followed by Mike Goodwin and Ryan Zook.

Heats went to Renninger, Josh Bender and Imes.

Polesitter Matt Chronister wired the field for the four cylinder feature win.

Chronister was challenged by Chris Anderson for the win but Anderson would finish second followed by Noah Swank, Tim Campbell and Tim Raup.

Twin heats went to Chris Anderson and Justin Williamson.

Feature finishes to follow Sunday.

J.J. GRASSO WINS LINCOLN SPEEDWAY 2017 SEASON FINALE;

Chase Dietz Wins 358 Sprint Finale, Adrian Shaffer Locks up 2017 358 Sprint Track Title

Travis McClelland Closes Out 2017 Season with All American Outlaw Win

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 10/7/2017 – JJ Grasso of Middletown, DE, drove his family-owned No.37 sprinter flawlessly through lapped traffic and held off 7-time 2017 winner Danny Dietrich and 2017 track champ Brian Montieth to pick up the win in the 30-lap $4,000-to-win 410 sprint season finale.

York’s Chase Dietz picked up the win in the 358 Sprint finale, while York’s Adrian Shaffer secured the 2017 track title with his fourth-place finish. Travis McClelland symbolically closed out the 2017 racing season at Lincoln Speedway with the win in the 20-lap All American Outlaw feature at the end of the night.

The 2017 finale was also a celebration of the lives of two special people involved in racing at the historic Pigeon Hills oval. Promotor and car-owner Bob Leiby was honored with the first annual memorial race in his honor after being rained out on September 2nd. This was coupled with the 29th running of the traditional Manufacturers Appreciation Night in honor of Hank Gentzler. 10’s of thousands of dollars in manufacturers goods were awarded in individual prize packages to the 410 sprint drivers starting the feature event. All this was made possible by the efforts of Pancho’s Racing Products.

Grasso, who started outside the front row, hooked onto the bumper of polesitter Eric Tomecek at the drop of the green and followed the Abbottstown racer into lapped traffic with Dietrich, Montieth, and Lucas Wolfe right behind through 10 laps.

At the beginning of lap 11, Grasso dove inside the leader entering turn 1 and slid up trying to secure the lead. Tomecek tried to hang onto the cushion and his lead, but slipped up off the cushion and into the outer wall, rolling his sprinter onto it’s side.

Grasso now had the lead. But right behind were Dietrich, Montieth, Wolfe and Greg Hodnett with 20 laps remaining. A daunting task for any driver.

Grasso went to work on the restart and used the clear track to his advantage, building a slight advantage as they entered lapped traffic once again on lap 17.

Both Dietrich and Montieth closed to gap on the leader and with 10 laps remaining the race was on through lapped traffic.

Then with five laps remaining Cole Young crashed on the frontstretch, bringing race’s final caution and set up a five-lap race to the checkered.

On the restart Grasso got up to speed flawlessly and never wavered as he took the checkered five laps later for the win over Dietrich, Montieth, Wolfe and Hodnett.

Completing the top-10 were 19th-starting Freddie Rahmer, Anthony Macri, 12th-starting Alan Krimes, 16th-starting Cory Haas, and 13th-starting Brandon Rahmer.

Heats for the 25 410 Sprinters were won by Matt Campbell, Hodnett, and Macri, with Freddie Rahmer winning the consolation.

8th-starting Chase Dietz passed race long leader Steve Drevicki on the sixth lap and raced away to his first 358 sprint win of the year at Lincoln in the finale.

Two cautions, both involving spin-outs by Brie Hershey on the eighth and 14th laps, allowed Drevicki to remain close to the leader throughout.

But Dietz was clearly the class of the field this night and easily took the checkered 1.93-seconds ahead of Drevicki for the win.

Cody Fletcher came out on top of a race-long battle with Adrian Shaffer for the third spot. Even though Shaffer had to settle for a fourth-place finish, it was enough to clinch the 2017 358 Sprint track title for the York racer.

12th-starting Brent Shearer completed the top-five.

Rounding out the top-10 were 13th-starting Troy Wagaman, Jr., 17th-starting Matt Findley, 18th-starting Tyler Ross, 20th-starting Chris Frank, and polesitter Jon Stewart.

Heats for the 33 358 Sprinters were won by Stewart, Shearer, Drevicki, and Kyle Denmyer with Chandler Leiby winning the consolation.

6th-starting Travis McClelland of Littlestown and polesitter Jim Minter of Sharpsburg, MD, waged a race-long battle in the 20-lap All American Outlaw feature with McClelland coming out on top by a mere .69-seconds in the 2017 finale at the Pigeon Hills oval.

Gary Moreland, Sr., Joe Davis, and Brad Alexander rounded out the top-five.

Heats for the All American Outlaws were won by Minter and McClelland.

This race closed out the 2017 racing season at Lincoln Speedway. The 2017 Lincoln Speedway Awards Banquet on Saturday, November 18th (6 PM-12:30 AM) will cap off the the season to honor the champions, top-10 in points, and give away the annual special awards in celebration of another successful season.

Promoters Don Leiby and Alan Kreitzer have announced that opening day for the 2018 season will be on Saturday, February 24th. Gates will open at noon with 410 sprint car racing to begin at 2:00 p.m.

Dietrich Swaps Lead With Campbell Seven Times In Final Laps To Close Grove Season With Sprints Win

10/6/17

Mechanicsburg – Danny Dietrich came out on top of a furious battle with Matt Campbell during the last few laps to pick up the victory in Friday night’s season ending sprint car main at Williams Grove Speedway.

And in the super late model main Bryan Bernheisel took the win over his father Jim Bernheisel to close out the season’s competition.

Trying to pick up his second win in under a month, Matt Campbell started on the pole of the 25-lap 410 sprint main and blasted into the lead over Dietrich when action began.

Campbell entered the rear of the field on just the fifth tour with Dietrich in tow however the Fawn Grove driver performed flawlessly in traffic to keep Dietrich at bay despite some intense battles as he worked through the back of the pack.

At the halfway point, Campbell was doing everything right to keep his lead over Dietrich with nearly a one second advantage.

With 10 laps to go, Campbell was still flawless, working both sides of the speedway as Dietrich and Brock Zearfoss kept pace although not able to make any bids for the win.

But with three laps to go, the races only caution flag unfurled, clearing the way for Campbell but also placing the second and third place cars directly on his tail.

And when action resumed for the final three laps, Dietrich went to work wrestling with Campbell for the win and during the final mile and a half, the pair swapped the lead no less than seven times as they see-sawed back and forth in every corner.

Campbell had a car that worked perfectly on both sides fo the track and if Dietirch went for the slider, Campbell simply backed off, turned the car and jetted back into the lead after dropping off of the cushion.

But Dietrich finally got the better of Campbell in the final turns, having beaten him into the third corner for the victory, which was his third of the year at the track.

Campbell then slipped just a bit in the final corner, allowing a close following Zearfoss to get by for second.

Dietrich’s margin of victory was .547 seconds over Zearfoss.

Fourth went to Greg Hodnett and fifth went to Lucas Wolfe.

Sixth through 10th went to Daryn Pittman, Freddie Rahmer, Chad Trout, Kody Lehman and Anthony Macri.

Heats went to Zearfoss, Tim Wagaman and Trout.

Bryan Bernheisel led ever lap of the 25-lap super late model main.

His pace was hampered by numerous caution flags including on the initial start and on laps seven, 10, 16 and 22.

But each time the field restarted the younger Bernheisel was able to pull away from the rest of the field.

Coleby Frye took second from Jim Bernheisel on the lap seven restart but Frye then withdrew from the race with 10 laps completed.

Third went to Gene Knaub followed by Tyler Horst and Matt Nailor.

Heats went to Frye and Jim Bernheisel.

The win was the second of Bryan Bernheisel’s career at the Williams Grove oval.

DAVID GRAVEL EARNS $50,000 FOR WIN IN 55TH ANNUAL CHAMPION RACING OIL NATIONAL OPEN AT WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY

MECHANICSBURG, PA – David Gravel took the lead from Donny Schatz and then took the lead back from James McFadden to win the 55th Annual Champion Racing Oil National Open Saturday night at Williams Grove Speedway.

Gravel’s second win in the National Open was worth $50,000 and was his second win of the weekend in a car owned by Pennsylvania’s Chad and Jenn Clemens. He also won the National Open in 2014.

“It’s crazy,” said Gravel, of Watertown, Conn. “I knew the track was going to end up doing that taking rubber and cleaning up around the bottom. I made a mistake on the restart and gave McFadden the bottom and was able to rail the top in three and four and get him back. I was really lucky that happened because if it didn’t I probably wouldn’t have won the race. I made a mistake, I was able to recover and able to hold on. There’s some cords showing from the tires. I didn’t want that last caution even though I was behind the lapped cars. I knew if I didn’t mess up it wouldn’t be an issue. I was worried about weight and blowing a tire. I’m happy to get another one here and solidify myself here. Three wins at the Grove in one year is pretty awesome.”

Schatz started second and drove into the race lead over polesitter Gravel and sixth starter McFadden on the opening lap.

Schatz built a quick one-second lead, but Gravel began to close passing Schatz with an inside move off turn four completing lap six as the leader.

Gravel reached slower traffic with a 1.359-second lead as McFadden challenged Schatz. Gravel was stuck behind Jac Haudenschild allowing Schatz and McFadden to close.

Schatz passed Gravel off turn two retaking the lead on lap 11, but Gravel took it back and passed Haudenschild and another car to give himself a two-car cushion.

McFadden passed Schatz in turn two taking over the second spot on lap 17.

Brian Montieth’s slower sprinter in turn two brought the field under caution with 18 laps completed. Gravel took the outside position for the double-file restart.

McFadden drove under him in turn two taking the lead. They were close at the line the next time by with McFadden leading.

Gravel took the lead back in turn four and they were nose-to-tail at the line completing lap 20.

Shane Stewart stopped in turn three on lap 21. Gravel went to the top again and maintained the lead as Schatz passed McFadden back for second.

By lap 26, the racing had shifted to the inside lane around the speedway. A crash off turn two brought out the red flag with 12 laps to go. Stewart was a flip victim. Brad Sweet, Kraig Kinser and Jason Johnson were also involved. Crews were allowed to refuel under an open red.

Gravel picked the inside for this restart, but the red flag came out again when Kinser flipped in turn one and Sweet was also involved again.

The restart was single-file this time.

Gravel controlled the pace as Logan Schuchart was the only driver trying the top in turn four. Schatz began to close with a few laps left and was on Gravel’s bumper in turns one and two and looked like he was about to try a move when the caution flew as Brian Brown slowed on the backstretch with two laps left.

Gravel didn’t make a mistake over the final laps and won by .683. Schatz, McFadden, 20th starter Schuchart and Pittman completed the top five. Ninth starter Greg Hodnett, Kerry Madsen, 11th starter Sheldon Haudenschild, 16th starter Brock Zearfoss and Jason Sides rounded out the top 10.

The mechanics of the top three finishers – Barry Jackson, Ricky Warner and Matt Highlands – all graduated from Big Spring High School in nearby Newville.

The top four drivers in total points from Thursday and Friday were locked into Saturday’s dash and included Schatz, Gravel, McFadden and Daryn Pittman. The heat races were lined up straight-up by points with Stewart, Kerry Madsen, Lucas Wolfe and Greg Hodnett winning those. Gravel won the dash and Sweet the Last Chance Showdown after a mechanical problem in his heat race.

McFadden Upends Field For First Outlaws & Williams Grove Win In Open Round 2

9/29/17

Mechanicsburg – Australian champion James McFadden won his first ever World of Outlaws sprint car feature on Friday night while also scoring his first ever win at Williams Grove Speedway, scoring $10,000 for the victory in night two of the 2017 Champion Racing Oil National Open.

Aboard the Highlands No. 3, McFadden earned the pole for the 25-lap main event by winning the dash.

The initial start of the feature saw Greg Hodnett take the lead from McFadden as the pair raced out of the fourth corner to complete lap one before a light rain shower hit the track, halting action.

A complete restart with no laps completed was ordered after a 20-minute delay.

And this time McFadden took a solid lead over Hodnett and he was trying to open up substantial distance when the red flag unfurled with just three laps recorded for a four car accident in the third turn.

The cars of Danny Dietrich, Trey Starks and Brian Montieth connected and saw Jac Haudenschild blast into the pile, getting the worst of the damage.

Haudenschild was escorted back to the pit area by ambulance.

The rest of the 22 laps would go non-stop with McFadden driving out to a near two second lead by lap 10 and he entered the backmarkers on lap 11.

But even lapped traffic didn’t allow Hodnett to close in as McFadden was still 1.85 seconds ahead with 10 laps to go.

However as traffic got heavier and the race went longer, Hodnett began to encroach and with four laps to go the leader’s advantage was down to .89 seconds, which put the front duo nearly nose to tail with Donny Schatz lurking in third.

With three laps to go McFadden had just .60 seconds between himself and Hodnett and that’s when he came up on the backmarkers of Alan Krimes and Brian Brown and Alan Krimes battling for position.

And when McFadden misjudged Brown’s entry into the first corner, the result saw him hard on the binders with all four wheels seemingly pointed every direction but straight as he tried to avoid catastrophy as he set the car into the corner.

This put Hodnett and Schatz in prime position to drive by but somehow McFadden emerged from turn two still the leader with second and third breathing down his neck.

And the lack of breathing room got even less on the final lap as .34 seconds was the advantage as the white flag waved.

Hodnett made a last turns move to steal the win as the pair headed through the fourth corner, dipping to McFadden’s inside as the pair swooped around the cushion but McFadden was able to beat Hodnett back to the stripe by just .24 seconds for the prestigious victory.

Schatz rode home a challenging third followed by Brad Sweet and Shane Stewart.

Sixth through 10th went to Jason Johnson, Ian Madsen, Lucas Wolfe, Kerry Madsen and David Gravel.

Heats for the 46-car field went to Johnson, McFadden, Wolfe and Hodnett with Cory Haas taking the C Main and Lance Dewease taking the B Main.

Dewease dropped out of second place in the second heat with motor ills but then climbed to 11th in the main event.

Overall fast time was set by Jason Sides with a lap of 16.976 seconds.

Freddie Rahmer finished 27th in the feature and needs only to take a green flag in Saturday night’s National Open itself to clinch the 2017 Williams Grove Speedway track title.

The top four in National Open points heading into the final night of competition on Saturday that are locked into the Open dash are: Donny Schatz, David Gravel, James McFadden and Daryn Pittman.

DAVID GRAVEL WINS OPENING NIGHT OF CHAMPION RACING OIL NATIONAL OPEN AT WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY

Greg Hodnett rebounds from crash in first feature to win postponed Summer Nationals feature worth $20,000

MECHANICSBURG, PA – David Gravel was racing third when leaders Greg Hodnett and Shane Stewart got together and spun in turn three.

Gravel missed the wreck, assumed the lead and controlled the final 15 laps scoring the opening night win for the 55th Annual Williams Grove National Open.

His 15th World of Outlaws win this season was worth $10,000. It was his second Grove win of the season.

“We’ve been fast here all year,” said Gravel, of Watertown, Conn. “Hopefully, we can keep it up all weekend. Obviously, it’s the start that we wanted. We’ll see what we can do. It has been a great year.”

Hodnett and Stewart shared the front row to start the 25-lap main event with Hodnett getting the lead. He led Stewart by 1.220 seconds as Gravel raced third in the early laps. Meanwhile, Donny Schatz and Lance Dewease battled for fourth.

Stewart was slowly closing on the leader. He drove off the bottom of turn four and Hodnett the top. The leaders made contact as they raced toward the flagstand. Hodnett spun, hit the fence, but kept going as the caution flew. Stewart officially completed the lap as the leader and Hodnett crossed the line second.

The restart saw close racing again between Hodnett and Stewart. Hodnett put a big slider on Stewart in turn one. They both slid to the fence with inches between the two. They made it off the second turn and down the backstretch. They raced into the third turn and made contact again. This time they both spun and slid across the track and into the fence. Stewart continued while Hodnett was towed to the pits.

Gravel just missed the wreck and assumed the lead.

“I don’t know how I didn’t crash there,” said Gravel. “It scared me a little bit. I got really lucky there.”

Gravel led Daryn Pittman and Dewease down for the restart. At the half-way point, Gravel led by 1.403 as Dewease challenged Pittman for second, but couldn’t make the pass.

Gravel controlled the remaining laps, but did have a brief challenge from Pittman on the inside of turn one with a few laps to go.

“I just had to hang on there,” said Gravel. “I knew Daryn was all over me. To get our 15th win and third win in Pa. this year is pretty amazing.”

Gravel won by 0.445 over Pittman. Dewease, Schatz and Cory Haas completed the top five. Sheldon Haudenschild, Kerry Madsen, Grove point leader Freddie Rahmer, Brian Brown and Brad Sweet rounded out the top 10.

The 48-car field was split into two groups for qualifying time trials. Greg Hodnett set fast time in the first group with a lap of 16.702. Shane Stewart set fast time in the second with a lap of 17.055. Hodnett, Pittman, Stewart and Dewease won the eight-lap heat races. Jason Johnson won the C-main, Hodnett won the dash and

Hodnett started on the pole in the postponed Summer Nationals feature and grabbed the race lead over Gravel and Sweet.

Danny Dietrich charged into third and then drove by Gravel off turn two taking second.

Hodnett reached traffic with a 2.285 second lead. The preferred line was the bottom and Hodnett stayed down and couldn’t lap a slower car.

Dietrich got another great run off turn two. Hodnett tried to lap the car on the backstretch with Dietrich coming on the top. Dietrich jammed it into the third turn and they made contact with Dietrich spinning out and collecting Brian Montieth.

Hodnett kept going and controlled the ensuing restart. Eighth starting Lucas Wolfe was up to fourth passing two cars on the restart then taking second as the caution flew again for spinning cars in turn three.

Another caution on the restart as Dietrich crashed in between turn one and two. A single-file restart ensued.

Hodnett kept Wolfe at bay on the lap 15 restart as Schatz passed Gravel through the middle of turn two. Pittman also passed Gravel taking fourth.

Racing moved to the inside groove over the final 10 laps. Hodnett caught traffic with five laps to go. Wolfe closed on Hodnett late but everybody stayed in line.

Hodnett won by .340 over Wolfe with Schatz, Pittman and Gravel completing the top five. Sweet, Stewart, Dewease, Schuchart and Sheldon Haudenschild rounded out the top 10.

Hodnett’s 71st career Grove win -fourth this year – was worth $20,000.

Williams Grove Champion Racing Oil National Open Is This Week

Prestigious event offers long and storied history

9/24/17

Mechanicsburg – Sprint car fans in the East will gather this Saturday night to see the 55th running of the Williams Grove Speedway Champion Racing Oil National Open for sprint cars sanctioned by the World of Outlaws Craftsman sprint car series, going 40-laps in distance and paying $50,000 to the winner.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Schatz was again the winner in 2007.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

An uncanny three more days of rain and raw weather wiped out a second attempt at a three-day nationals in 2016.

A make up two weeks later found Danny Dietrich taking the lead from Joey Saldana with two laps to go in the 40-lap affair to score a wildly popluar win for the Pennsylvania Posse. Brad Sweet also took a turn at leading the main.

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

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

LANCE DEWEASE EARNS FIRST DIRT CLASSIC WIN AND COLLECTS $20,000 PRIZE

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 9/23/2017 – In his victory lane interview, Lance Dewease mentioned he hadn’t been good all night. Turns out he was good enough to win his first Dirt Classic and take home $20,000 on Saturday Night at Lincoln Speedway.

Winner of the 2nd Dirt Classic, Brian Montieth, started on the pole of the main event with Gerard McIntyre Jr. on the outside. Montieth took the lead on the start with McIntyre settled in second.

The leaders hit lapped traffic on lap 7. As Montieth worked his way through lapped traffic he hit the wall on lap 10 opening the door for McIntyre to take the lead.

Montieth caught a break when Tyler Ross spun out in turn 4 on lap 11 bringing out the caution. McIntyre was able to hold off Montieth on the restart and held the lead until Cory Haas got turned around on lap 15 in turn 1 bringing out another caution. McIntyre couldn’t hold off Montieth on the restart and Montieth took the lead back on lap 16.

Anthony Macri flipped in turns 1 and 2 bringing out the red flag on lap 26. As the field was lining up for the restart, the right rear on the leader’s car was going flat. Montieth took the green flag for the restart but his tire did not hold up allowing eighth place starter Lance Dewease to take the lead passing both Montieth and McIntyre.

Montieth pulled off the track on lap 27, ending his night and his attempt at being the second repeat winner of the Dirt Classic.

After some contact with Danny Dietrich on the front stretch, Freddie Rahmer brought out the caution on lap 32 with a flat tire.

Dewease held onto his lead on the restart with McIntyre in second and a charging Dietrich in third. Dietrich got around McIntyre on lap 37 and had his eyes set on Dewease. Three laps were not enough for Dietrich to catch him and Dewease took the checkered flag with a 1.05 second advantage over Dietrich.

Lucas Wolfe crossed the line third, Gerard McIntyre held on to finish fourth and James McFadden completed the top 5.

Hard charger of the night, JJ Grasso finished sixth from his 20th starting spot. Greg Hodnett, Chad Trout, Kerry Madsen and Matt Campbell rounded out the top 10.

The Dirt Classic brings a unique race format to Central Pennsylvania. Points are awarded for time trials and two sets of heat races.

The top 20 drivers in points after time trials and heat races were locked into the main event. The remaining cars ran a B-main with the top 4 tagging the rear of the A-main.

Thirty-seven cars were on hand at Lincoln Speedway for the 4th Dirt Classic on Saturday Night. Drivers of the 37-car field represented 11 states and Australia.

TJ Stutts set fast time with a lap of 13.547 seconds averaging 99.653mph around the 3/8-mile oval.

The first set of heat races were won by TJ Stutts, Brian Brown, Lucas Wolfe, Gerard McIntyre and Freddie Rahmer. When the field was set up in reverse the heat winners were Tim Wagaman, Danny Dietrich, Brock Zearfoss, Kerry Madsen and JJ Grasso.

Tyler Ross, Alan Krimes, Brock Zearfoss and Matt Campbell transferred out of the B-main to complete the 24-car field for the main event.

FRANKIE HERR TAKES BACK TO BACK WINS; SCOTT DELLINGER CAPTURES POINT TITLE
Latshaw Wins First while Morgan and Horan Get Second Season Wins
By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA…9/23/17
After dominating the Sportsman 100 just seven days prior, Carlisle, PA racer Frankie Herr came back to score his second straight win in Saturday night’s Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman feature at Susquehanna Speedway.

While Herr was dominating the late stages of the 25-lap feature, Lewisberry driver Scott Dellinger’s eighth place finish clinched his first career Super Sportsman track championship. Dellinger will be honored the track banquet later this year.

It appeared a first career winner would come away with the win in the Super Sportsman main as Nate Young set the pace during the first 14 laps but Garrett Williamson used a restart to take the lead and was looking for his first win as he led until lap 18.

That was when Herr, who had lined up 10th on the grid, arrived at the front of the field after methodically working his way forward. Herr drove by Williamson on the 19th lap as Williamson attempted to stay close but Herr’s Devine Motorsports No. 70D was too much once again for the rest of the field as he posted his second win of the season in the final points race for the year.

Williamson settled for a season best runner-up finish with Mike Enders coming home third as Young held on for a fourth place finish with Matt Ondek completing the top five.

Sixth through 10th were Timmie Barrick, Jay Fannasy, Scott Dellinger, Gregg Foster and last year’s track champion Russ Mitten.

Mitten was the Hard Charger for the race after starting 19th. He flipped during his heat race then worked his way forward in the feature only to stop on lap 15. He restarted at the rear and came back for the top ten finish as he finished runner-up in season points.

Herr and Ondek were heat race winners for the 20 car field.

Jed Latshaw raced to his first career win in the 25-lap Bernheisel Race Cars 358 Late Model feature.

Starting sixth, Latshaw made his race winning pass on Joe Lusk with eight laps complete and then kept defending track champion and current point leader Randy Christine, Jr. at bay before securing the win. Latshaw became the 10th different winner in Susquehanna late model competition this season.

Christine finished 2.675 seconds back in the runner-up spot trailed by Lusk, Brian Shuey and Eric Hohol with Sam Rial, Charles Potts, Bobby Beard, Devin Frey and Tim Murphy completing the top ten.

Shuey and Lusk were heat winners for the 17 car field.

Craig Morgan turned in an impressive effort in his second win of the year in the Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stock feature.

Morgan started back in the 13th spot and went out front with 16 laps in the books to capture the win. Morgan took the lead from Bob Scott, Jr. who had led the first eight laps and then again on the 15th lap. Morgan withstood ten caution flags during the 20-lap event.

Morgan crossed under the checkered flag 2.877 seconds ahead of Scott Thunberg with Jim Palm earning the Hard Charger after starting 14th. Fourth went to Joey Hoffer followed by Jimmy Combs, Brandon Wanner, Steve Dove, Eric Tripp, Matt Adams and Scott.

Kyle Saylor and Randy Zechman won heats for the 19 street stock field.

Travis Horan led laps three through 18 of the Superior Homes Extreme Stock feature but gave the lead up to point leader Alex Updegraff on the 19th circuit.

But Horan battled back and used a thrilling final lap pass to score the win, his second of the year over Updegraff, Bill Powell, Patrick McClane and Jeff Gill.

McClane and Michael Smith won heats for the 17 Extreme Stocks.

Susquehanna Speedway returns to action Saturday night, October 7 for the Harvest Classic King of the Hill presented by Hessiron.com featuring the Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman, Bernheisel Race Cars 358 Late Models, Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stocks and ServiceMaster Clean Central PA Legends.

GREG HODNETT WINS NATIONAL OPEN TUNE-UP RACE FRIDAY NIGHT AT WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY

$50,000 to win National Open Next Saturday

MECHANICSBURG, PA – Greg Hodnett is ready for the World of Outlaws-sanctioned Williams Grove National Open next weekend after picking up his 70th career Sprint car win at the Grove Friday night.

Hodnett’s third Grove win of the season was worth $4,000 in the Mike Heffner-owned No. 27, but it wasn’t easy as he had constant pressure from Lance Dewease over the final half of the 25-lap main event.

“I could hear him pushing us around,” said Hodnett about Dewease. “I wasn’t very good off of two no matter what I was doing. In three and four, I couldn’t get stuck again to either go across or hit the bottom. He almost drove by me in three and four the one time. I figured I’d better get going and see if I could hold him off for a couple laps.”

Hodnett, of Spring Grove, started on the pole and beat Brian Brown into the first turn on the opening lap to take the lead. Dewease started fourth and passed Brown taking second on the second lap.

As Dewease stalked Hodnett, Brown and James McFadden traded the third spot and eighth starter Lucas Wolfe passed Matt Campbell taking fifth.

Hodnett’s lead was 1.903 when they reached slower traffic at the back of the field with seven laps completed.

The heavy lapped traffic helped Dewease cut Hodnett’s lead in half in only one lap. Dewease ducked low on Hodnett, but Hodnett maintained the lead by about a half-second.

Dewease took another shot at Hodnett, but wasn’t able to seal the deal as the drivers ranked second and third on the all-time Grove win list continued to battle for the win.

“If he could have beat me to the cushion it would have been his easily,” said Hodnett, who starts on the pole of the postponed Summer Nationals feature Thursday night. “Lance is not going to crash himself or me because we know we’ve got to race tomorrow and race next week. This is more of an organized hot lap session than anything for us. Although it’s nice to win and be competitive. We also know there’s bigger fish to fry here in the next couple weeks. He had a huge run coming off four and tried to take that shot. Honestly, if he would have been about two feet in front of us then I would have backed off and let him go, but fortunately we had a lot of momentum coming off the top.”

Hodnett stayed in front of Dewease as they both switched lanes working through lapped traffic. The last five laps saw Dewease challenge Hodnett again on the low side, but Hodnett switched to the bottom groove to take away Dewease’s preferred line.

Hodnett cleared one final lapped car off turn two on the last lap securing the win by 0.803 over Dewease.

“It’s a good thing it wasn’t 30 laps that’s all I can say,” said Hodnett.

Wolfe passed Brown to finish third. Point leader Freddie Rahmer raced from 10th to fifth. McFadden, Campbell, Kerry Madsen, Brian Montieth and 20th starter Danny Dietrich rounded out the top 10. The non-stop time was 8:34.

TJ Stutts set fast time over the 29-car field with a lap of 16.941. Stutts, Hodnett and James McFadden won the eight-lap heat races. Hodnett passed Brown on the final lap to win the dash. Anthony Macri won the B-main.

Scott Fisher led all 20 laps winning the 358-Sprint feature. Track champion Kevin Nouse started 12th and finished a close second. Kyle Denmyer, Chris Frank and Chase Dietz completed the top five. Steve Owings, Brett Wanner, Nyle Berkes, Troy Wagaman Jr. and Steve Drevicki rounded out the top 10.

“The way this year went, we really, really needed this,” said Fisher.

Kyle Denmyer, Brett Wanner and Kevin Nouse won the 358 heats.

DANNY DIETRICH TAKES THURSDAY NIGHT THUNDER WIN

Hayden Pascoe Wins Legends Feature By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA…9/21/17 Danny Dietrich used a bold move on a lap 12 restart and never looked back as he raced to his first win of the season at Susquehanna Speedway in Thursday night’s BAPS Auto Paints and Supplies 410 Sprint Series feature.

Dietrich’s ninth career Susquehanna win was worth $4,000 to the Gary Kauffman owned, Weikert’s Livestock, Sandoe’s Fruit Market team. He became the fifth different winner in six BAPS events this season.

It was an eventful night for Dietrich, who ran out of fuel during his time trial laps resulting in a fifth place start in his heat race. With the top two finishers in the heat going to the dash, Dietrich blew through the field in the heat to finish second and put himself into position to capitalize in the dash.

He lined out fourth for the 30-lap feature as Missouri driver Brian Brown grabbed the lead from his front row starting spot.

Brown, who won both events he competed in last weekend in Central PA, was looking to make it three straight but his run out front ended on lap 11 with a right rear flat tire.

This turned the lead over to fellow starter Brian Montieth, who led lap 12 before a red for Mike Walter halted action.

Dietrich was ready on the ensuing restart, using every inch of turn two to sneak by Montieth and take the lead but the race quickly returned to red after James McFadden’s attempted slide job resulted in a hard crash in turn four that also collected Greg Hodnett, who had worked his way up from his 12th starting spot.

With an open red flag, Hodnett’s team changed the top wing and he lined up third on the restart behind Dietrich and Montieth.

Hodnett disposed of Montieth on the restart and set his sights on Dietrich, who had opened a near three second lead at one point.

Hodnett began to close the gap on the fast running Dietrich and was running about two seconds off the pace when the Mike Heffner owned car went up in smoke with 20 laps down.

It was all Dietrich over the final laps but the action for the runner-up spot was fierce as Montieth, Tim Kaeding and Brock Zearfoss traded sliders several times before the checkered flag.

Dietrich crossed 1.321 seconds ahead of Montieth for his 11th win of the season with Kaeding third, Zearfoss fourth and Lucas Wolfe fifth.

Rounding out the top ten finishers were 14th starter Trey Starks, Kyle Reinhardt, Dale Blaney, Gerard McIntyre, Jr. and Mark Smith.

Brown paced the 21 car field in time trials with a lap of 15.272 seconds as heats were won by Kaeding, Wolfe and Walter. Montieth won the Dash.

Hayden Pascoe raced to his first win of the season in the 20-lap ServiceMaster Clean Central PA Legends feature.

Pascoe started fourth and dominated much of the event as he picked up the win over Travis Perry, eighth starting Bob Stough, 17th starting Don Leiby and Trent Yoder.

Harlon Leppo, Scott Houdeshell and Hayden Pascoe won heats for the 22 Central PA Legends.

The seventh and final BAPS 410 Sprint Series event will close out the season at Susquehanna Speedway on Saturday, October 28 when the Sprint Showdown for 410 Sprints will highlight the action. Joining the 410’s that day will be the 358 Sprints. Race time will be 4PM.

Susquehanna returns to action this coming Saturday night September 23rd on Hanover Auto Team Night featuring the Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman, Bernheisel Race Cars 358 Late Models, Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stocks and Superior Homes Extreme stocks. Racing begins at 7PM which will be the final race for the month of September.

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY

 16 September 2017 By Michael Batz

BROWN WINS ASCoC JIM NACE MEMORIAL NATIONAL OPEN IN FIRST CAREER SPRINT CAR START AT SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY SATURDAY

SELINSGROVE, Pa. -- Although Brian Brown of Grain Valley, Mo., had never been to Selinsgrove Speedway before, he had a connection to the speedway and the final race of the season that was run Saturday. The Jim Nace Memorial 35th Annual National Open was special to Brown because his engine builder, Charlie Garrett, had built engines for Nace’s sprint cars as well.

At the start of the 30-lap, $8,000-to-win All Star Circuit of Champions 410 sprint car main event, outside front row start Brown outran polesitter James McFadden into turn one. Brown led the field until a red flag on lap three was displayed for Caleb Armstrong who flipped on the back stretch.

The field restarted, but then TJ Stutts flipped in turn four to bring out the red flag again on lap four. No driver injuries were reported.

Third-place starter Brock Zearfoss was the car on the move when the green flag came back out. Zearfoss was soon third closing in on James McFadden.

McFadden began to close a straight-away down to car lengths as Brown tried to work through the lap traffic. Brown negotiated the lap cars cautiously while McFadden and Zearfoss pushed as hard as they could to close the gap. Zearfoss made the pass of McFadden for second before McFadden slowed.

McFadden’s car stopped on the front stretch with mechanical issues to bring out the caution on lap 12. The opportunity for Brown to have an open race track on lap 12 was just what he needed. Brown pulled away to a large lead over Zearfoss while Zearfoss battled with fifth-place starter Greg Hodnett.

Trey Starks started 21st after breaking in his heat race. By the half way mark, Starks, had driven into the seventh spot.

Brown was just catching the tail of the field again when the yellow flag was presented on lap 21 for the All Star point leader Chad Kemenah when his car came to a stop in turn two.

Zearfoss knew with only ten laps remaining he would need to make his move on the restart. Zearfoss dove to the inside of Brown in turn one, but Brown was too strong off the outside of the speedway taking the race lead back.

Brown did catch lap traffic with two laps to go, but this time Zearfoss gained no ground.

Brown led the remaining laps on his way to his first All Star win in the National Open.

In victory lane Brown credited his crew with their hard work and his sponsors for their support to allow him to come to Pennsylvania to compete.

“I guess a half mile is to my liking. It’s not the same exact layout as Knoxville, but it has its similarities. I never seen the place before tonight and we were quickest in hot laps here tonight,” said Brown in Victory Lane. “Open air was so important, as it is anywhere, and we were able to take advantage of it tonight.”

Brown, Zearfoss, and Hodnett were the podium finishers. Anthony Macri finished fourth ahead of Trey Starks. Starks, the night’s Fast Tees Fast Timer over the 40-car field, was the hard charger gaining 16 spots.

Lucas Wolfe finished in sixth followed Danny Dietrich, Ryan Smith, Jason Schultz, and Tony Stewart.

Heat race wins went to Tim Kaeding, Blane Heimbach, Ryan Smith, Anthony Macri, while Trey Starks won the B-Main.

McFadden and Brown won the Dash’s.

Tommy Slanker led every lap of the Pro Stock season finale. Slanker, the 2017 track champion, took the lead right at the drop of the green flag. Shaun Lawton spent the race chasing Slanker but had to settle for second. Dustin Snook was third.

Cory Long and Brandon Moser were the remaining cars in the top five. Sixth through tenth finishing spots were taken by Kurt Wray, John Troxell, Noah Jenson, Matt Hornberger, and Bill Conrad.

Kyle Bachman and Shaun Lawton won the heat races.

The speedway was battling the threat of fog for much of the main events after an early evening rain shower. The fog got too thick to complete the night’s 305 Sprint Car feature in a safe manner.

FRANKIE HERR DOMINATES SPORTSMAN 100 Geesaman Takes Street Stocks while Updegraff Gets Extreme Stock Win By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA…9/16/17 Heading into Saturday night’s 43rd annual Credit Connection Auto Sales Gary Wolford Sportsman 100 at Susquehanna Speedway, Frankie Herr had just four top ten finishes on the season. And none of those finishes were inside the top five.

But when the big money and all the laurels was on the line, it was the Carlisle, PA driver who made a snoozer out of the legendary race putting on a flag to flag dominating performance to capture his eighth career win in the biggest race of the season for the Super Sportsman.

After timing fourth, Herr lined up on the pole for the 100 lap test and would never look back but had plenty of cautions to keep the field on his bumper throughout the feature.

Twelve yellows and two red flags slowed the pace of the 100 lapper.

A three car crash on the start involving Rich Eichelberger, Dave Conrad, Jr. and Mike Enders quickly brought out the first yellow. Various single car incidents slowed action up through lap 73 when a red for a crash involving Justin Williams, Timmie Barrick and Chad Criswell.

Herr enjoyed big leads throughout the event and held a four second advantage when a lap 91 caution flew to close point leader Scott Dellinger on his bumper.

Dellinger, who started 11th didn’t have anything for Herr and then lost the runner-up spot to leading feature winner Kenny Edkin in the late laps but it was all Herr out front in his Devine Motorsports owned, Victory Lane Construction, Dirty Deeds Repair and Fabrication No. 70D.

Herr’s winnings included a $4,000 payday for the 100 lapper and another $3,419 in lap money for a big night of winnings totaling $7,419 for his first win of the season at Susquehanna. He also became the ninth different winner in the Sportsman this year. Edkin, who started fourth finished second with Dellinger, 15th starter Steve Fannasy and 10th starter Jay Fannasy competing the top five finishers.

Crossing sixth was Garrett Williamson trailed by Matt Ondek, Davey Walsh, 22na and Hard Charger Chad Smith and Nate Young.

Edkin paced the 27-car field in time trials with a lap of 17.287 seconds while the two qualifiers were won by Mike Enders and Davey Walsh.

Jonestown’s Jasen Geesaman raced to his second win of the season in the Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stock feature.

Bob Scott, Jr. set the pace during the first six laps before giving way to Geesaman who drove off from the field to post the win ahead of Scott, Chris Derr, Jim Palm and Craig Morgan with Jimmy Combs, Mike Potts, Matt Adams, Steve Dove and Joey Hoffer completing the top ten.

Geesaman and Adams won heats for the 20 street stock field.

Defending champion and current point leader Alex Updegraff continued his winning ways in Superior Homes Extreme Stock action taking his 11th win of the season.

Updegraff took control with eight laps complete and never looked back in the win over Michael Smith, Jeff Gill, Kyle Emig and Donnie Broderick. There were 10 Extreme Stocks pitside.

Susquehanna Speedway returns to action two times this week with the big Thursday night Thunder BAPS Auto Paints and Supplies 410 Sprint Series event Thursday night, September 21. It will be the sixth race in the seven race BAPS series . The ServiceMaster Clean Central PA Legends join the racing card beginning at 7PM.

CURT MICHAEL WINS LAST LAP THRILLER IN URC/358 SPRINT CHALLENGE;

Bryan Bernheisel wires the field to win the Precise Racing Products 358 Late Model Feature

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 9/16/2017 - Ocean View, DE driver Curt Michael showed why he is a nine-time URC champion Saturday night at Lincoln Speedway as he took advantage of a last lap restart to slide under race-leader Doug Hammaker in the final turns to the checkered and hang on to win the special 25-lap MACH 1 Trailer Services URC/358 Sprint Challenge. In the process Michael not only collected the $3,000 winners’ purse, but the bragging rights for winning the URC/358 Sprint Challenge.

“I’m sure glad to win and take home MACH 1 Trailer Services $1,000…I appreciate it!, “said a jubilant Curt Michael in regards to the added race sponsorship money which raised the winner’s purse to $3,000 for the night.

The final lap drama was set up when a caution for debris was thrown as the leaders took the white flag with one lap to go. Sixth-starting Hammaker had taken the lead from polesitter and race-long leader Chris Coyle on the 15th lap and appeared to be on his way to the 25-lap feature win.

Seventh-starting Michael was frantically trying to keep pace with the leaders and got by Coyle for the runner-up spot a lap later on lap 16.

Michael got his first chance to challenge Hammaker for the top spot with a caution restart with three laps to go. But Hammaker got a good restart and easily kept Michael behind him.

Debris in turns one and two brought out the caution just as the leaders got the white flag signaling one lap to go, giving Michael one more shot at the win.

Michael was able to keep pace with Hammaker as they took the green in one-lap shoot-out to the checkers. Heading into the final turns to the checkered Michael dove to the bottom of turns three and four and was able to slide up in front of Hammaker as they exited the turn with the checkered flag waving. Hammaker tried to dive under Michael exiting the final turn and outrace him to the checkered. But he didn’t have enough speed to get it done as Michael edged out Hammaker for the win.

But the excitement didn’t end there.

As Michael and Hammaker took the checkered, Michael took his foot off the throttle and slowed. Hammaker appeared to still be at full throttle as they approached turn one and caught the right-front wheel Michaels. Hammaker then was launched into a series of violent end-over-end flips and came to a rest along the outer concrete wall with Michaels spinning on three wheels also sliding into the wall backwards.

After picking up the pieces of his damaged winning sprint car, Michaels’ Bill Gallagher-owned GEI/Valley Forge, Inc./Kruger Trailers/Lelands.com/BK Trucking was towed to the post-race scales and then finally to victory lane.

“I got a read on how (Hammaker) was restarting the race on the restart before that last one,” said Michael on his final lap restart strategy. “He got me on that restart before (lap 22), he caught me sleeping. That next one (the final lap) I stayed on him. I wasn’t sure if I could get a good enough run on him to slide him and win the race.”

Meanwhile Hammaker slowly got out of his destroyed car and was eventually transported to a local hospital where it was it later reported he had a fractured right leg, a very bruised left leg, and a sore right hand/wrist.

The enormity of the moment was not lost on Michael in victory lane.

“I can’t thank these guys enough who showed up,” exclaimed Michael when asked about the huge turn-out for the special URC/358 Challenge. “54 cars! URC winning the thing! I couldn’t thank them (racers) enough for showing up…we could have a real nice rivalry between URC and the 358s here. I also want to thank these fans for showing up. I know we’re up against the Selinsgrove National Open tonight but I think we put on a pretty good show for the fans that did show up.”

And the show didn’t stop with just the first and second place cars of Michael and Hammaker. 23rd-starting Tyler Ross advanced 20 positions after 25 laps to finish third. Early-race leader Coyle settled for fourth and 12th-starting Josh Weller fifth.

Completing the top-10 were 21st-starting Todd Gracey, Scott Fisher, 15th-starting Brent Shearer, Bryn Gohn, and 16th-starting Ashley Cappetta.

Heats for the 54 sprinters were won by Chris Allen, Jr., Chandler Leiby, Jeff Halligan, Gohn, and Hammaker. Twin consolation were won by Gracey and Steve Drevicki.

Jonestown’s Bryan Bernheisel was the class of the Precise Racing Products 358 Late Model field as he led all 20 laps from his pole position to pick-up his first career Lincoln Speedway win.

But the win was not easy as he had to hold off Gene Kanub, Bobby Beard, Cam Zeigler, and Robbie Emory over the closing laps for the win.

Completing the top-10 were Ryan Walls, Alan Sagi, Precise Racing Products Series point leader Travis Mease, Sean Merkel, and Bryon Sipe.

Heats for the 24 358 Late Models on hand were won by Bryan Bernheisel, Cam Zeigler and Bobby Beard.

Next Saturday, Saturday, September 23rd, Lincoln will hosts its’ biggest race of the year with the FOURTH ANNUAL “DIRT CLASSIC” for the 410 Sprints ($20,000 to win) PLUS FIREWORKS. Time trials are scheduled for 7:30 PM. Pit gates will open at 3:30 PM, admission for advanced ticket holders 3:45 PM, with race night tickets going on sale at 4 PM.
