Danny Dietrich Wins Williams Grove Diamond Series 4K Friday, Watkins claims 305s

5/26/17

Mechanicsburg – Gettysburg’s Danny Dietrich piloted Gary Kauffman’s No. 48 sprint car to his first win of the Williams Grove Speedway season on Friday night, pocketing $4,000 for the victory in the second leg of the 2017 Diamond Series.

In the 20-lap PASS 305 sprint main, Mark Watkins took the win after Ian Detweiler spun out of the lead with four laps to go.

For Dietrich, it was a flag to flag victory in the 410 sprint main, with his pace slowed only once, on the second lap.

The caution period was for the stopped cars of Brock Zearfoss and Jay Galloway in the second turn. The incident began when TJ Stutts nearly spun his mount before continuing on while the other two cars got collected.

Dietrich entered traffic on the eighth lap with Freddie Rahmer and Dale Blaney chasing him for the lead as they had since the drop of the green flag.

With 15 laps to go in the 25-lap feature, Lance Dewease got around Blaney for third while trying to catch Rahmer.

However neither Rahmer nor Dewease was able to close on the leader as all of the front-runners worked through traffic.

Dewease made a few attempts at an outside fourth turn pass of Rahmer for second but saw little results for his efforts.

Dietrich cruised unscathed to the victory by .393 seconds over Rahmer with Dewease finishing third followed by Blaney and Greg Hodnett.

Sixth through 10th went to Aaron Ott, Brian Montieth, Lucas Wolfe, Brandon Rahmer and Alan Krimes.

Heats went to Brandon Rahmer, Montieth and Dietrich.

The win was the 16th of Dietrich’s career at Williams Grove.

After two attempts at a start of the 305 sprint main, Ian Detweiler took the lead and had Mark Watkins chasing him in second when a caution flag unfurled with nine laps completed.

On the restart, Stephanie Dodson got around Watkins for second and again swapped the spot in the fourth corner before the lap could be completed.

And as it would turn out, that flip flop for second on the restart ended up being the race for the lead as Detweiler spun in front of the field while in command on the 16th tour, causing another yellow flag period and handing the lead to Watkins.

Dodson was unable to challenge on the lap 16 restart and it was Watkins taking advantage of the spin for the win.

Dodson was second followed by Scott Ellerman, Colby Dice and Cale Reigle.

Sixth through 10th went to Kyle Ganoe, Dave Brown Jr., Ken Duke Jr., Tommy Carberry and Darren Miller.

Heats went to Detweiler, Kyle Craker and Miller.

SNEERINGER CLAIMS FIRST OF THE YEAR IN TRAIL-WAY 358 SPRINTS;

Young pulls double in 600cc & 270cc micros; Walls dominates street stocks; Chronister takes limited stocks

HANOVER, PA (5/26/2017) – Isaac Sneeringer inched ahead of race-long leader Dwight Leppo moments before a 17th-lap red flag and held off Leppo the rest of the way to score his first win of the year in the 25-lap Insinger Performance Fuels Spring Championship for 358 sprint cars at Trail-Way Speedway Friday night.

“I needed the lapped traffic, and got him right at the line before that red,” said Sneeringer upon exiting his TE Racing #19Z in victory lane, “She took off like a rocket after the red. The first three weeks we had a vibration, and tonight it was better. We have a baby boy on the way in a couple of weeks, and this money will probably go toward that!”

A 12-car redraw placed Leppo on the outside of the front row for the start, and he grabbed the lead from polesitter Joe Trone, Jr. at the outset and led the first 16 laps. Sneeringer, who started fourth, caught Leppo at the line to complete lap 17. They were the only two cars to pass under the flagstand before a red flag came out for a flipping Chris Priar in turn two.

Sneeringer assumed the lead for the restart, and crossed .84 seconds ahead of Leppo at the finish to claim the $1,200 top prize. Big Mike’s Crabhouse hard charger Steve Owings came from 11th starting spot to finish third, with Jeff Halligan and J.B. Cunningham completing the top five.

Sixth through tenth were Cody Fletcher, David Holbrook, T.J. DeHaven, Steve Kisamore, and Trone completing the top ten.

Qualifiers for the 16 sprint cars were won by Sneeringer and Todd Gracey.

For the first time in his career, Jim Young was a double winner in the micro-sprint divisions, claiming both the 600cc micro-sprint and Mason-Dixon 270cc micro-sprint features.

In the 600s, Young bested Bradley Weber by .44 seconds. Travis Keiser, Jesse Snyder, and hard charger Kameron Morral (who started 12th, completed the top five.

In the 270, Young crossed .75 seconds ahead of Brian Marriott, with Mike Rutherford, Joe Long Jr. and Billy Logeman rounding out the top five.

Heats for the 600s were won by Young and Jesse Snyder.

Qualifiers for the 270s were claimed by Levi Peck, Cory Myers, and Rutherford.

Brian Walls blew away the field in the 20-lap street stock feature, ending his race 8.47 seconds ahead of Matt Wampler, with Aaron Beard, Cory Weishaar, and Dalton Myers finishing third through fifth.

Walls was also the event’s hard charger, coming from 11th starting spot to catch Wampler following a fourth-lap caution for Zach Myers, who was running second at the time. Walls actually advanced from 11th to fifth after two failed attempts to start the race resulting in cautions on lap one.

Matt Chronister came from 11th-starting spot to score his first win of the year in the 15-lap limited stock feature. Brother Jason Chronister (who started 12th) finished second, with Robbie Carroll, Terry Hartlaub, and Justin Wagaman crossing third through fifth.

Heats were won by Matt Chronister and Terry Hartlaub.

PAUL MILLER CHARGES TO FIRST SUSQUEHANNA WIN

Dave Brown, Ryan Greth and Alex Updegraff Visit Victory Lane By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA…5/20/17 Paul Miller not only earned the Hard Charger award Saturday night at Susquehanna Speedway but the Fawn Grove., PA driver’s impressive charge resulted in his first win of the season in the 25-lap Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman feature.

Starting deep in the field in the 18th starting spot, Miller’s charge to the front was impressive as he took the lead with ten laps complete and then held off a feisty Kenny Edkin before securing the win.

Following two yellows before a lap could be completed, Devin Beidel led the first six laps before giving way to Tom Wyckoff who led laps seven and eight.

Beidel went back out front on the ninth lap but Miller drove by for the race lead, a lead he would never relinquish but had to fend off the challenges of Edkin, the feature winner the last time the Super Sportsman were in action.

Miller became the fourth different winner in as many races this season.

Edkin, who started 10th, settled for the runner-up spot trailed by 12th starter Scott Dellinger, Russ Miller and Tony Jackson with 19th starting Scott Geesey coming home sixth ahead of 21st starter Doug Dodson, Beidel, 20th starter Chase Gutshall and Jay Fannasy.

Jackson, Mitten and Justin Foster won heats for the 31-car field with Geesey taking the consolation win.

Cale Reigle led the first 11 laps of the 20-lap PASS/IMCA 305 Sprint car main before fourth-starting Dave Brown took control.

Brown would never look back as he became the third different winner in as many 305 Sprint mains this season at the track.

Tyler Reeser raced home second ahead of Reigle, 14th starter Darren Miller and Kyle Ganoe as Colby Dice, Austin Bishop, 19th starter Kyle Craker, Stefanie Carberry and Ken Duke, Jr. completed the top ten. Craker was named the Hard Charger.

Brown, Reeser, Dave Grube and Ganoe won heats for the 34-car field. Nick Sweigart won the consolation.

Ryan Greth led all 20 laps to score the win in the ARDC Midget feature over Alex Bright, Brendon Bright, Bret Arndt and Tommy Kunsman.

The race was red flagged on the third lap for a violent series of flips on the front stretch by Trevor Kobylarz. He was not injured.

Arndt and Kunsman won heats for the 13 cars.

Continuing his domination over the division this year, defending track champion Alex Updegraff took the win in the Extreme Stock 50 lapper.

Updegraff started third and went out front with ten laps in the books and went onto dominate the remainder of the event for his fourth win of the season. He was followed by Jeff Gill, Michael Smith, Donnie Broderick and Jeff Waltz.

Heats for the 12 cars were won by Patrick McClane and Don Murphy.

Susquehanna Speedway returns to action Saturday night, May 27 as the Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman compete in the Blazers Body Shop Bud Bricker Nationals presented by Sutliff Chevrolet/PA Veterans Foundation. The Bernheisel Race Cars 358 Late Models, Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stocks and Superior Homes Extreme Stocks are also on the racing card. Race time is 7PM.

There will also be a Test ‘N’ Tune on Wednesday night, May 24 from 6-9PM at the Speedway.

SHANE STEWART’S FIRST WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY VICTORY COMES IN MORGAN CUP WORTH $17,000

MECHANICSBURG, PA – Shane Stewart earned a total of $17,000 for his first career Williams Grove Speedway win in the Morgan Cup Saturday night sanctioned by the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series.

For the driver from Bixby, Okla., it was also his first series win of the season in the Larson Marks No. 2.

“If you would have told me my first win of this season was going to be at this racetrack, I wouldn’t have put all of Donald Trump’s money on that one,” said Stewart.

“Track position was everything. This place gets really, really dirty and as I came up on the lapped traffic, I was more or less stuck. Typically, you do see two grooves here, but tonight it just wasn’t there. The dash draw really helped put us out front. You don’t even know what it means to me to finally get to victory lane here. The East Coast isn’t always kind to me. I’m going to cherish this win for sure.”

Stewart and T.J. Stutts shared the front row for the 30-lap main event and nearly main contact as they raced down the frontstretch on the initial start. Stutts secured the lead in turns one and two. Stewart looked to the middle of the corners, but couldn’t pass the leader.

He began to pull away with three laps completed. Third place Sheldon Haudenschild did a 360-spin in turn two. He kept racing and no caution flag was thrown.

Stewart began to close as they reached lapped traffic and blasted under Stutts as they raced into turn three and would slide in front of him. Stutts drove back under him and they were side-by-side down the frontstretch.

Haudenschild spun again and stopped in turn three interrupting the lead battle with 11 laps completed.

Stewart grabbed the lead on the double-file restart. Stutts tried to take it back, but couldn’t off turn two. Logan Schuchart passed Tim Shaffer for third and Lance Dewease was up to fifth following the restart.

“I didn’t get a good initial start to the feature,” said Stewart. “I told myself that if TJ picked the bottom that I actually thought the top was going to be a better starting spot. It worked out really good for us. Clean air makes a big difference. My guys have worked really hard this year. We haven’t had very good finishes. We’ve had some races that we should have won and I’ve either screwed up or we’ve had crazy stuff happen to us.”

A second turn crash involving Brian Montieth and Brent Marks slowed the pace with 15 laps completed.

Stewart picked the outside lane for the double-file restart and got a good one as he drove away from Stutts unchallenged. Daryn Pittman moved to fourth on the restart as Dewease lost some spots.

Stewart was in control as Shaffer got back by Schuchart on the restart and then pressured Stutts for second. Stewart had a 2.935 second lead when the caution flew with nine laps to go when Kraig Kinser stopped on the frontstretch.

Pittman blasted by two cars and into second on the restart and Shaffer drove by Stutts into third. Dewease was passing cars again with five laps remaining as he drove by Schuchart and into fourth.

Stewart controlled the final laps winning by 2.049 seconds over Pittman and Shaffer.

“I don’t think I’ve ever seen this place like this tonight,” said Pittman. “It was definitely different. Toward the end of the race it got more like normal Williams Grove. We had a good car on restarts and I could get by a couple guys each time. We’ve been working hard on this car. Shane was quite a bit faster than we were in clean air.”

“Tonight, we did the right things, put ourselves in position, and we’re on the frontstretch,” said Shaffer.

Dewease and Schuchart completed the top five and banged wheels on the backstretch following the checkers.

Stutts, Ryan Taylor, David Gravel, Jason Johnson and Brad Sweet rounded out the top 10.

Johnson set quick time over the 37-car field with a lap of 16.402. Dewease, Sides, Schuchart and Shaffer followed Johnson in qualifying. Haudenschild, Stutts, Stewart, Taylor and Dale Blaney rounded out the top 10 in qualifying.

The eight-lap heat races were won by Johnson, Dewease, Sides and Schuchart. Stewart won the dash and Brent Marks won the Last Chance Showdown.

Sprint Car Feature (30 laps): 1. Shane Stewart. 2. Daryn Pittman. 3. Tim Shaffer. 4. Lance Dewease. 5. Logan Schuchart. 6. TJ Stutts. 7. Ryan Taylor. 8. David Gravel. 9. Jason Johnson. 10.

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – After three weeks off, two due to inclement weather, Selinsgrove Speedway pulled off an exciting three division show despite another serious effort to dampen the action by Mother Nature.

The Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprint series sanctioned the Mach 1 Chassis 360 Sprint Car Spectacular at on Reinhart Food Service Night Saturday with a strong 30-car field.

A multi-car incident on the start of the 25-lap main event in turns one and two resulted in Adam Carberry’s sprint car flipping over. All drivers escaped injury. At the drop of the green flag to restart the A-Main Jason Barney showed the way with Ryan Kissinger in pursuit.

Derek Locke drove into the top spot on the following lap with Kissinger in chase. Kissinger then closed in on Locke quickly in lap traffic. Kissinger's car developed mechanical problems on lap 11 and slowed to bring out a yellow flag.

A restart on lap 12 gave the field a shot at Locke after he led the race early. The double file restart brought Robbie Stillwaggon and Mark Smith to Locke, but a yellow put the field back to single file. Smith took advantage of the restart to take the top spots with a sweeping move around both Stillwaggon and then Locke. Once out front Smith drove away from the field.

The yellow flew on lap 20 to bunch the field up once more. On the restart, Chad Layton would take over second from Locke but as the two drivers battled Smith would drive away to his first win of the season at Selinsgrove and collect $2,000. Locke would secure the second spot before the drop of the checkered flag and Layton would round out the podium. Barney and Davie Franek were the top five finishers.

Heat races for the 360 Sprint Cars were won by Jeff Cook, Robbie Stillwaggon, and Davie Franek. The B-Main was won by Jason Shultz and the dash went to Michael Walter.

Track records were falling on a fast Selinsgrove Speedway. Michael Walter has the new track record in the 4 lap dash. Davie Franek now owns the track record for the 10-lap distance for sprint cars.

Bryan Bernheisel showed the field to the green flag in round two of the Moon Shine Camo Route 35 Late Model Challenge series. Bernheisel led early holding off the advances of a hard charging Jeff Rine.

Various yellow flags throughout the event allowed Rine to get close, but he was never able to make the pass of Bernheisel. In the final corner Rine made one final bid but was unable to get by.

The Delaware double file restarts definitely made things challenging said Bernheisel in victory Lane. He continued by saying, “I was trying to do something a little different and diamond them on the starts so that Rine wasn't able to get by me as easy on the inside.”

It all paid off for the 119 with "Kid Lazer" taking his first win of the season worth $2,000. Rine and 10th place starter Coleby Frye rounded out the podium. Chad Hollenbeck came from 19th to finish fourth followed by Jim Yoder.

Steve Campbell, Rick Singleton, and Tony Adams were the heat race winners for the Jeff's Auto Body Late Models.

AJ Stroup battled Dustin Snook early on in the pro stock feature event. The race was the final time for the drivers to tuneup for the rescheduled Pro Stock 20 next weekend.

Tommy Slanker showed he will be a force to be reckoned with driving from the 10th spot up into the top three before lap three ever went on the board. On lap six Slanker dove to the inside and made the pass of Stroup for the race lead. Soon Shawn Lawton would move into the runner-up spot and by lap 12 the lead was shrinking.

Lawton put all of his eggs in the basket going into turn three coming to the white flag when he went to the inside of the race leader Slanker. Lawton pushed up the track and Slanker was able to get away for his second win of the season.

Lawton crossed the line in second but was penalized at the end for passing before the cone. Stroup moved to second followed by Snook, Lawton, and Brandon Moser.

Heat races for the Pro Stocks were won by Shawn Lawton and AJ Stroup.

Next Saturday night, May 27, Selinsgrove Speedway is back in action on Pepsi Night over the Memorial Day weekend. Racing on May 27 will feature the 360 Sprint Cars plus Late Models, the rescheduled A&A Auto Stores Pro Stock 20, and Roadrunners plus Fireworks! Racing will kick off at 7pm. Track gates will open at 5 p.m.

DAVID GRAVEL WINS WORLD OF OUTLAWS MORGAN CUP WEEKEND OPENER FRIDAY NIGHT AT WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY

MECHANICSBURG, PA – David Gravel held off Donny Schatz over the final laps to win the Morgan Cup weekend opener Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway in a 25-lap main event sanctioned by the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series.

His seventh series win of the season, and second straight in Pennsylvania after winning Wednesday at Lincoln, was worth $8,000.

“I’m with a great team with great crew guys,” said Gravel, of Watertown, Conn. “We just keep getting better and better. I got lucky with the dash draw again. When it goes your way; it goes your way. I guess it’s our time right now. The last restart, I didn’t feel that great, and I screwed up on the last corner on the last lap and I’m sure (Schatz) got pretty close. I had just enough to hold on.”

After winning the dash, Gravel started on the pole and grabbed the race lead over Brad Sweet as Greg Hodnett and Daryn Pittman raced hard for third with Hodnett getting the spot. Schatz started fifth and passed Pittman as well and then swapped third with Hodnett on lap two.

The caution flag flew with three laps completed for a third turn incident involving Lucas Wolfe and Joey Saldana.

Gravel extended his lead to about half a straightaway with 10 laps completed. He led by 1.3 seconds with 13 laps completed as he reached slower traffic.

This allowed Sweet to close as Gravel began to try the bottom groove to lap cars. Schatz drove by Hodnett and into third with seven laps to go and closed on the leaders.

They were having trouble passing the lapped cars and Schatz took advantage moving by Sweet and into second with four to go. Jason Sides, who was lapped and in the middle of the leaders, ended up into the inside backstretch fence with four laps to go bringing out the caution flag. A single-file restart ensued.

Rahmer would drive by Sweet and into third on the restart as Schatz stayed right with Gravel. The caution flew again with three laps to go.

Gravel controlled the restart, but Schatz stayed within striking distance trying to make the bottom groove work as did Rahmer over the final laps. Gravel stayed on the cushion and had a miscue in turn four as Schatz closed even more finishing 0.380 behind Gravel. Rahmer finished a close third.

“You have to qualify good here,” said Gravel. “It’s huge. We did that tonight and keep putting ourselves in good positions.”

“You’re not going to get him in open race track,” said Schatz. “We had to stay in traffic. That’s the way it goes some days. I had a great car. You have to make things happen off the cushion.”

“It means a lot to be able to race with these guys,” said Rahmer. “We put the whole night together. I’m pretty happy with this. We run our car to get faster at the end of the race. I needed to maintain early so I could get good at the end. I was really good in one and two. I just need to work on three and four for tomorrow night. “

Sweet and Hodnett completed the top five.

Pittman, Brian Montieth, Lance Dewease, Sheldon Haudenschild and Brent Marks rounded out the top 10.

Saldana set overall fast time with a lap of 16.639 in the second qualifying flight. Grove point leader Rahmer set fast time in the first flight of qualifying with a lap of 16.818. A total of 41 cars were in the pits.

Rahmer, Schatz, Saldana and Pittman won the eight-lap heat races. Greg Wilson won the C-main, Gravel won the dash and Trey Starks won the Last Chance Showdown.

The Morgan Cup concludes Saturday night with the Morgan Cup and $17,000 going to the winner and the Morgan Cup trophy either staying at Williams Grove or Outlaws headquarters in Charlotte, N.C.

OWINGS MAKES LATE-RACE PASS TO CLAIM 358 SPRINT WIN AT TRAIL-WAY; BRAD SHANK WINS FIRST IN 358 LATE MODELS; TRANSEAU TAKES LEGENDS; JASON CHRONISTER DOMINATES LIMITED STOCKS

HANOVER, PA (5/19/2017) – Steve Owings caught race-long leader Cody Fletcher in heavy lapped traffic to score his second win of the year in Friday night’s 25-lap 358 sprint car feature at Trail-Way Speedway.

“I hated to see Cody lose that race,” said Owings after exiting the Westminster Transmission/Westminster Lawn/Valentine Motorsports #35 in victory lane, “I want to thank the crew. A monkey could drive this car.”

“There were a lot of lapped cars, but everyone held their line and nobody did anything stupid,” continued Owings, “This is a good place to run. I don’t understand why more cars don’t come here to race.”

Actually, Friday night’s field of 19 cars was the biggest of the year. Owings started eighth and was also the event’s Big Mike Crabhouse hard charger. Owings was fifth by the end of the first lap, advanced to third by the fifth lap, drove around Todd Gracey for second on lap seven, and spent the next 17 laps tracking down Fletcher before making the race-winning pass exiting turn two of lap 24.

Sixth-starting Isaac Sneeringer crossed third, followed by Gracey and 12th-starting Dwight Leppo. Sixth through tenth were David Holbrook, T.J. DeHaven, Joe Trone, Jr., Landon Myers, and Austin Kirby.

Heats for the 358 sprint cars were won by Sneeringer, Holbrook, and Gracey.

The start of the feature events was delayed one-half hour by a shower that hit the speedway.

Brad Shank scored his first career win in the 25-lap feature for 358 late models. Shank started fourth out of the five cars that were able to report out for the feature. Travis Mease and Shank ran first and second the entire way until Shank took the lead on lap 13 as the two made contact on the front stretch and Mease spun into the infield. Bobby Beard assumed second for the restart and ran there the rest of the way, crossing .63 seconds behind the winner. Tommy Slaker finished third, followed by Mease and Larry Neiderer.

The lone heat for the eight 358 late models was won by Bobby Beard.

Chris Transeau raced to his first win of the year and the third of his TW career in the 20-lap Central PA Legends feature. Bill Diehl led the first 15 laps from the pole before yielding to Transeau. One lap later, Diehl dropped from the field with damage from an earlier incident with a lapped car during a caution period.

Australian Hayden Pascoe finished second, followed by Justin Mitchell, Jeff Herbst, and 12th-startingMason Chaney.

Heats for the 26 Legends were won by Diehl, Transeau, and Scott Houdeshell. Alex Schmidel was the consolation winner.

Jason Chronister drove away from the field to score his second win of the year and career 16th in the 15-lap limited stock feature. Chronister started fourth, crossed second behind polesitter Robbie Carroll at the end of the first lap, and took the lead from Carroll on lap two. Shannon Weaver, Travis Brown, Julio Perez, and 12th-starting Justin Wagaman finished second through fifth.

Heats for the 23 limited stocks were won by Weaver, Chronister, and Brown.

Next Friday, May 19, 2017, Trail-Way Speedway hosts the rescheduled Insinger Fuels 358 Sprint Car Spring Championship, paying $1,200 to win. Joining the Sprint Cars will be the Street Stocks, Limited Stocks, Mason-Dixon 270 Micro Sprints and the 600 Micro Sprints. Gates open at 5:30 p.m., with heats beginning at 7:45 p.m.

5/14/17

Mechanicsburg – Williams Grove Speedway will present the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series this Friday and Saturday, May 19 and 20 with time trials getting underway both nights at 7:30 pm.

Gates for each day of the affair will open at 5 pm with fireworks included in both programs.

Adult general admission tickets are $30 each night with youth ages 13 – 20 admitted for $15 and ages 12 and under admitted to the shows for free.

The Williams Grove campground will open at noon on Wednesday for those wishing to stay the weekend at the historic oval with spots priced at just $30.

The Williams Grove Speedway portion of the 50/50 during both weekend shows will be given to a collection of charities including: Kickin For Kids, Kids Camp Cadet, Kiwanis and the Bethesda Project.

The May 19 and 20 outlaws stand at Williams Grove will be the first match up of the season by the circuit against the Pennsylvania Posse sprint car stars as both groups meet to compete in The Morgan Cup weekend presented by NAPA/NGK Spark Plugs.

Friday’s show will feature a showdown going 25 laps in distance, paying $8,000 to the winner.

Saturday’s feature will be 30 laps with $12,000 posted as the regular winner’s share plus another $5,000 to win the Morgan Cup presented by NAPA/NGK Spark Plugs, making the Saturday grand total $17,000 for the checkered flag.

The Saturday 2017 Morgan Cup event honors late Williams Grove owner Morgan Hughes with not only cash but bragging rights also up for grabs.

The Morgan Cup trophy itself will go home for another season to the circuit headquarters of whoever wins the race, either to the home of the PA Posse at the offices of Williams Grove Speedway or to the corporate home of the World of Outlaws in North Carolina.

Already a winner at the track this season as well as elsewhere in the region, Lance Dewease of Fayetteville won the only May outlaws program completed at Williams Grove last season with the other falling victim to rain.

Still early in the 2017 season, Freddie Rahmer of Salfordville has established himself atop the Lawrence Chevrolet

Williams Grove Speedway point standings and he could very easily be a contender for a win during the upcoming outlaws two-day stand along with Dewease.

Perennial World of Outlaws point champion Donny Schatz of North Dakota and Connecticut’s David Gravel currently sit atop the outlaws point standings with Schatz having established himself as the leading circuit winner to date while actually holding the point lead.

Mark Smith Wires For First Port Royal Sprints Win In Eight Years

5/13/17

Port Royal – Former track champion Mark Smith of Sunbury wired the field for the 25-lap 410 sprint car win at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night, taking $3,200 for the 33rd win of his career at the track.

The win marked the end of an eight-year absence for Smith from 410-sprint victory lane at the oval.

Rick Singleton of Huntingdon took the win in the 22-lap super late model main after being the benefactor of the leader’s misfortune twice in the event.

In the econo late model main it was Andrew Shoop scoring his first ever win in the division while Dave Grube took his first career win in 305-sprint action at the track.

Smith’s run to the win in the 410-sprint main saw him enter lapped traffic on the eighth lap with Steve Buckwalter in tow from the fourth starting spot.

Eighth starter Dave Blaney blasted into fourth on the first circuit but would get no higher in the running order, instead slipping backward as the race continued.

Smith worked with the lead as sixth starter Rick Lafferty eventually came to third with 17th starter Greg Hodnett on his heels.

Buckwalter was able to challenge Smith for the lead during the mid-stages but Smith was strong enough to stay out front, choosing his lines through traffic carefully to preserve control.

The race nearly went non-stop until a lone yellow flag unfurled for a stopped Chad Trout as the field was headed to the checkers on the final lap.

The final lap restart proved uneventful with Smith ending up taking the win by .864 seconds over Buckwalter with Lafferty third followed by Hodnett and Tyler Bear.

Bear gave up third to both Lafferty and then Hodnett with four laps to go.

Sixth through 10th went to Aaron Ott, Dave Blaney, Mike Wagner, Logan Wagner and Brock Zearfoss.

Heats went to Smith, Bear and Buckwalter.

The super late model main was a harrowing affair with no less than seven caution flags and three leaders, two of which fell out of the top spot.

When the race began, polesitter Matt Parks got crossed up in front of the field in the first turn, nearly collecting Tim Smith Jr. while third starter Andy Haus blasted by on the inside lane to take command.

Haus was running away with the lead on the fourth tour when he slammed into the outside first turn wall to bring out the first of the numerous cautions.

This handed fifth starter Rick Singleton the lead with Tim Smith Jr. restarting second and Smith challenged Singleton for the lead when action resumed.

Meanwhile, after starting 16th in the field, Chad Hollenbeck was working the pack and was scored sixth on a lap six restart and ensuing restarts worked in his favor to make sweeping outside passes in order to blast to the front.

On the 11th tour, Hollenbeck worked the outside lane beautifully to make a two-car pass of both Smith and Singleton to take the lead and never look back.

Hollenbeck withstood restarts just after completing the 11th lap and again on lap 15 with no issues but then when another yellow flag appeared for a stopped Mike Lupfer with four laps to go, Hollenbeck withdrew from the event, again handing Singleton control of the event.

And this time Singleton would not again relinquish control even with a final restart on lap 19 and a final lap challenge by Smith.

Singleton took third win of his career at the track by .117 seconds ahead of Smith, followed by Matt Parks, Austin Berry and Dylan Yoder.

Sixth through 10th went to Jim Yoder, Rance Garlock, Tim Wilson, Nick Dickson and Bryan Bernheisel.

Heats went to Parks, Jeff Rine and Wilson.

Rine set a new one-lap and eight-lap track record in the second heat race, setting a new single lap mark of 17.470 seconds and a new eight-lap mark of 2:22.094.

Andrew Shoop took the lead from JR Toner on a lap six restart to speed to his first career checkers in the division at the track.

Eric Irvin drove into second for the finish followed by Tim Fedder, Todd Snook and Toner.

Sixth through 10th went to Harold Ranck, Derrick Garman, Curt Dunn, Garrett Gray and Tim Krape.

Heats went to Fedder and Krape.

Fedder set new one-lap and eight-lap records in his heat race, establishing the single lap mark at 19.718 seconds and the eight-lap record at 2.39:710.

Drew Ritchey led the first lap of the 305-sprint main before Jeff Miller took over.

However Miller’s night would end abruptly three laps shy of the finish when he slammed the outside second turn wall after opening up a huge lead in what was a foggy feature event.

Miller’s calamity with the wall handed the lead to Grube who went on to win over Tyler Reeser, Ritchey, Ron Aurand and Cale Reigle.

Heats went to Stephanie Dodson and Aurand.

LANCE DEWEASE DEFENDS GOBRECHT CLASSIC WIN
Doug Hammaker Gets Second Win in 358's
By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA…5/7/17

Anytime Lance Dewease and the Don Kreitz Racing team hit the race track, odds are high that they will be standing in victory lane at the end of the night.

Dewease successfully defended his win in Sunday night’s Select Collision Kevin Gobrecht Classic presented by Hessiron.com at Susquehanna Speedway.

Dewease’s win came in the second of seven BAPS Auto Paints and Supplies 410 Sprint Series events at the York Haven oval and was worth $5,760 to the Fayetteville veteran.

Dewease’s winnings included a $4,800 base pay for the 30-lap event plus $480 from Emory Transmissions for setting fast time and another $480 for the ServiceMaster “Clean Sweep” for quick time, winning his heat and winning the feature.

Dewease lined up fifth on the starting grid as polesitter and dash winner Greg Hodnett set the early pace through the first four laps before a caution for Bradley Howard closed the field.

Brian Montieth drove around Hodnett on the restart and immediately pulled away, opening up a four-second advantage when disaster struck with 15 laps complete when Trey Starks spun as Montieth was coming up to lap him and had no where to go and hit Starks to bring out the red flag.

This put Dewease on the point and he would never look back in scoring his fourth win in five starts this season and first win at Susquehanna in 2017.

Hodnett finished in the runner-up spot trailed by Aaron Ott, ninth-starting Lucas Wolfe and 13th starting Brock Zearfoss with Brandon Rahmer, Kyle Moody, Ryan Smith, Kyle Reinhardt and Tyler Ross completing the top ten finishers. Reinhardt took the $480 bonus for Brown and Miller Racing Solutions for the Hard Charger Award..

Dewease’s lap of 15.241 seconds paced the 27-car BAPS 410 Sprint field while heat races were won by Dewease, Starks and Moody. Freddie Rahmer was the consolation winner.

Doug Hammaker took his second straight win in the 25-lap 358 Sprint car feature, which was the Grantville drivers third overall win in 2017.

Brent Shearer led the first three circuits before giving way to Hammaker who then the on during the marathon feature, that saw seven cautions and one red flag slow the pace.

Hammaker was strong throughout the event to bring home the checkered flag over Dwight Leppo, Jordan Givler, Troy Wagaman, Jr. and Brett Wanner with TJ DeHaven, Cody Fletcher, Jared Esh, Chris Frank and Wyatt Hinkle rounding out the top ten.

Kevin Nouse, Jared Esh and Givler were heat race winners for the 28 car field as Jeff Halligan won the consolation.

Next up for the BAPS Auto Paints and Supplies 410 Sprint Series will be a special Thursday night program on Thursday, June 8 as the 410 Sprints will be joined by the PASS/IMCA 305 Sprints on Sprintcarunlimited.com Night. Racing will begin at 7 PM.

SATURDAY, APRIL 29, 2017 SUSQUEHANNA SPEEDWAY RACE RESULTS

TYLER REESER WINS JIM STRAUSBAUGH BALD HILL SHOOTOUT Kobylarz, Updegraff and Sigler Also Take Checkered Flags By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA…4/29/17

Tyler Reeser came away with the big win in Saturday night’s Jim Strausbaugh Memorial Bald Hill Shootout for the Freedmont ® Mortgage Lending PASS IMCA 305 Sprints at Susquehanna Speedway.

The Orwigsburg driver assumed control of the event on lap 12 when leader Cale Reigle slowed on the speedway while leading.

Reigle, who started on the pole took the lead on lap eight from Stephanie Dodson but mechanical woes sidelined him shortly after taking the point.

Reeser, who had lined up sixth on the starting grid would go unchallenged to his first win of the season at Susquehanna aboard his MAS Trucking No. 5T. The win was worth $1,000 to Reeser in a race run in memory of Strausbaugh, a noted mechanic and car owner who passed away last year.

Following the Orwigsburg racer under the checkered flag were Rick Stief, Kyle Ganoe, 12th starting Zach Newlin and Dodson with Dave Brown, Jaremi Hanson, Greg Dobrosky, Mark Watkins and Drew Ritchey completing the top ten.

In victory lane, Reeser chose two random envelopes for $500 bonuses from Wintermyers Auto Salvage. Brown and Dodson were the recipients.

Brown, Reeser and Dodson were heat race winners for the 26 305 Sprints. Nick Sweigart won the consolation.

Trevor Kobylarz led all 20 laps to pick up the win in the Autobahn Indoor Speedway ARDC Midget feature over Brendon Bright, Ryan Greth, Alex Bright and Adam Pierson.

Both Bright brothers were heat race winners for the 15 car field.

Defending track champion and current point leader, Alex Updegraff came from his 10th starting spot to post his third win in four starts in the 20-lap Superior Homes Extreme Stock feature.

Not even a late race yellow with two laps remaining could slow Updegraff who posted the win over Patrick McClane, Travis Horan, Jeff Gill and Kyle Emig.

McClane won the heat for the 11 Extreme stocks.

Kevin Sigler became the fourth different winner in as many races this season as he came away with the win in the 20-lap Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stock feature.

Sigler started second and led flag to flag but his domination out front was slowed on lap 12 for a red flag that saw Chad Stine flip his car.

Trailing Sigler at the finish were Eric Tripp, Craig Morgan, 10th starting Mike Potts and Scott Thunberg as Jimmy Combs, Bobby Kupp, Matt Adams, Dalton Frye and Joey Hoffer rounded out the top ten.

Hoffer, Sigler and Potts were heat winners for the 22-car field.

The first weekend of May will see another double-header at the York Haven facility as the Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman return to action on Saturday, May 8 joined by the BRC 358 Late Models, Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stocks and Pennmar Cars. Race time is 7PM.

Then on Sunday, May 9, the BAPS 410 Sprint Series returns for its second of seven events with the Select Collision Kevin Gobrecht Classis presented by Hessiron.com. Joining the 410 Sprints on this big program will be the 358 Sprints and it will also be ARCH Night. Race Time is 7PM.

Lance Dewease Wires Port Royal All Stars Keith Kauffman Classic

Dylan Yoder Claims Moon Shine Rt. 35 Late Model Series Kickoff

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

4/29/17

Port Royal – Lance Dewease wired the field from the pole for an impressive victory in Saturday’s 30-lap All Star Circuit of Champions Sprints Keith Kauffman Classic at Port Royal Speedway.

The win, behind the wheel of the Don Kreitz Jr. owned, Dave Brown Sr. wrenched No. 69, was the 101st of his career at the Port Royal oval and was worth $5,000.

In the kickoff to the Rt. 35 Moon Shine Camo Dirt Late Model Challenge Series, Dylan Yoder of Selinsgrove scored the $2,000 victory after getting the lead late when leader Jeff Rine’s motor expired.

The 30-lap Kauffman Classic, honoring the tracks most prolific sprint car winner and champion in history, went non-stop with Dewease leading every circuit while putting on an impressive show in traffic while also narrowly avoiding disaster on two occasions.

Dewease entered the rear of the field on the sixth circuit of the feature and at times made three-wide passes to continue moving forward in traffic.

At the halfway point, Dewease had a 4.760 second lead that grew to 6.748 seconds at the finish.

In the first half of the event, Dewease slammed into the inside first turn retaining barrier and glanced back out onto the track but continued on with the lead.

And then late in the event, hard contact with the lapped car of Doug Esh in the third turn proved to nearly be his undoing.

In victory lane, the right front tire of his machine was spewing air from the contact with the wheel bent away from the tire.

Ryan Smith started third in the event and motored by second-starter Blane Heimbach on the start to chase Dewease the entire distance while also fending off challenges, first from Steve Buckwalter and later from defending Kauffman Classic champion Dale Blaney.

Blaney got around Buckwalter for third on the 12th lap and reeled in Smith but repeated attempts to get by for second were unsuccessful.

During the final stages of the race Blaney’s run stabilized.

Dylan Cisney raced consistently throughout to ride home fourth with Heimbach slipping to fifth at the finish.

Sixth through 10th went to Buckwalter, Chad Kemenah, Brock Zearfoss, TJ Stutts and Mike Wagner.

Heats for the 42 cars went to Cisney, Blaney, Kemenah and Buckwalter.

The C Main was taken by Brandon Spithaler while Aaron Ott scored the B Main.

Twin dashes went to Dewease and Heimbach.

Fast time in time trials was set by Dewease with a lap of 17.559 seconds.

The Moon Shine Camo Series kickoff super late model feature was a drawn-out affair with numerous cautions and a red flag hampering the event.

On the initial lap, polesitter Matt Parks spun in front of the field in the second turn.

Tim Smith Jr. then took the lead when the first lap was completed bu fourth starter Jeff Rine was quick to motor by Smith for the lead.

And once in front, Rine jetted away from the field, entering the rear of the field on the seventh tour.

A yellow flag with eight away bunched the field finding Dylan Yoder up to second but unable to challenge on the restart with Smith instead reclaiming second.

Another yellow flag with 10 laps down again forced a restart and a red flag ensued when three cars tangled in the fourth corner that found Dave Brouse Jr. ramping up and over two cars, flipping in the process and landing upside down.

Luckily, there were no injuries reported.

Two more cautions on lap 11 and on the restart regrouped the field again but Rine was too stout for all challengers on restarts.

And then just after lap 20 was scored, leader Rine spewed smoke from his machine as his engine expired, handing the lead to Rine.

Ironically, Yoder was leading the first three late model mains of the year at the track only to lose them when mechanical ills forced him to withdraw from the races.

Chad Hollenbeck took second spot at the finish followed by Coleby Frye, Tim Wilson and Nick Dickson.

Sixth through 10th went to Mike Lupfer, 24th starter Trent Brenneman, Rick Singleton, Chad Myers and Austin Berry.

Heats went to Smith Jr., Wilson and Yoder.

DIETRICH SETS NEW RECORD IN CLAIMING $6,900 TOP PRIZE IN LINCOLN WELDON STERNER MEMORIAL;

Defending champ Leiby scores 5th career win in 358 sprints; Dellinger also gets 5th career win in super sportsman

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 4/29/2017 – “This is a fast race car.”

That understatement was delivered by Danny Dietrich after claiming his third win of the year in the 33-lap, $6,900-to-win 14th Annual Weldon Sterner Memorial for 410 sprint cars at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

Time trials, qualifying, and an inversion at the front of the field placed Dietrich on the outside of the front row for the start. He grabbed the lead from polesitter Jim Siegel at the outset and dominated the rest of the way.

His lead was 1.16 seconds when he hit lapped traffic on lap nine. He increased it to over three seconds as he raced through heavy lapped traffic at the half-way point, and crossed 6.72 seconds ahead of Alan Krimes, setting a new 33-lap record in the process (8 minutes, 53.171 seconds).

Krimes started sixth and came on strong at the end, passing Gerard McIntyre, Jr. for the runner-up spot with seven laps to go. Third through fifth were Lucas Wolfe (who passed McIntyre for third laps to go), 13th starting and hard charger Brian Montieth, and McIntyre.

Sixth through tenth were Siegel, Cory Haas, Chad Trout, Freddie Rahmer, and Billy Dietrich.

410 Sprint heats were won by Krimes, Freddie Rahmer, and Billy Dietrich, with Brandon Rahmer winning the consolation. Fast time in time trials over the 29-car field was set by Lucas Wolfe with a 1-lap time of 13.229-seconds (102.049 MPH).

Chandler Leiby survived a hard double-whammy with the outside wall in turns one and two with five laps to go to score his fifth career win in the 20-lap 358 sprint car feature. Leiby sustained no damage on impact, and although he slowed momentarily to recover, his lead was big enough to stay in front and claim the $1,200 top prize.

His final margin of victory was 1.06 seconds over David Hobrook, with Todd Rittenhouse, Jr., Dalton Dietrich, and Adrian Shaffer completing the top five. Brie Hershey ended a great run by coming from 17th starting spot to finish sixth, with Kyle Denmyer, Chris Arnold, Chris Frank, and Jeff Halligan rounding out the top five.

So far, there have been five different winners in five races in the 358 division at Lincoln this season.

Heats for the 30 358 Sprints were won by Holbrook, Matt Findley, and Shaffer, with Phil Walter winning the consolation.

Like Leiby, Scott Dellinger scored his fifth career win in 25-lap super sportman feature. That event also went non-stop, with Dellinger crossing under the checkered in a time of 7 minutes, 22.30 seconds. His final margin of victory was 1.66 second over Mike Enders, with Chad Criswell, Frankie Herr, and Kenny Edkin finishing third through fifth.

Herr led the first ten laps from the pole, with outside front row starter Dellinger close behind. Dellinger caught Herr on lap 11 and withstood challenges from Enders and Criswell over the second half of the race. A dive through lapped cars in turns three and four with two laps to sealed the $1,200 win.

Heats for the 24 Super Sportsman were won by Criswell, Edkin, and Garrett Williamson.

Next Saturday night, May 6th, it will be York County Racing Club (YCRC) Night with 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints, and Central PA Legends at 7:30 PM. Gates open at 5:30 PM.

Dewease Notches No. 87 At Williams Grove In All Stars Tommy Classic

Tyler Reeser claims 305 sprints

4/28/17

Mechanicsburg – It’s win number 87 and counting for Lance Dewease in the sprint car record books at Williams Grove Speedway after his defeat of Freddie Rahmer and the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions Sprints in the annual Tommy Hinnershitz Classic on Friday night.

Now at 87 wins on his career at the oval, Dewease of Fayetteville needs just three more victories to tie Fred Rahmer Sr. on the all-time Williams Grove win list and four more to become the all-time win leader.

Tim Shaffer and Freddie Rahmer comprised the front row for the start of the 30-lap Tommy Classic with Rahmer going for all the marbles in the first and second turns on the green flag lap but Dewease stuck his nose into the mix on the low side and came out with second as the trio raced onto the backchute.

Shaffer held a small lead over Dewease during the opening laps but by lap four Dewease was reeling in the leader and it took just two more laps for him to catch Shaffer and make a low side pass in the third and fourth corner to take command of the field with six away.

Dewease then entered the backmarkers on the ninth tour as Rahmer finally got around Shaffer for second just shy of the halfway point.

The only caution flag of the race unfurled 14 laps to go for a stopped Steve Buckwalter, erasing a .921 second lead that Dewease had over Rahmer.

Rahmer proved a stout challenger on the restart and over the entire ramining distance, consistenly rolling the outside lane in the first and second turns to try and gain valuable ground in an effort to net the top spot.

Dewease again entered traffic with six laps to go and Rahmer was close enough the whole time to keep Dewease honest but he was never as close as he was on the final lap in the second corner.

As it happened, Dewease and Rahmer took the white flag with backmarker of Anthony Macri just in front and when Dewease chose low to enter turn one, so did Macri with Rahmer blasting the outside lane.

Rahmer drove up and around Macri with Dewease seemingly boxed out until at the last possible moment Macri slipped up off of the bottom just enough in the middle of the turn to set up a breath taking three-wide situation as Dewease nudged by both Macri and Rahmer to burst onto the backstretch still the leader.

The surge that Dewease got off of the bottom groove in the second turn allowed him to hold onto the victory, taking his second win of the year at the track by .814 seconds at the finish.

The $5,000 win was the sixth All Stars victory of Dewease’s career at Williams Grove Speedway alone and the 32nd of his career overall on the series circuit.

Shaffer held on for second followed by Aaron Ott and Danny Dietrich.

Sixth through 10th went to Trey Starks, Brian Montieth, Lucas Wolfe, TJ Stutts and Tony Stewart.

Heats went to Rahmer, Montieth, Wolfe and Stewart with twin dashes going to Shaffer and Rahmer.

Steve Buckwalter took the B Main and Rodney Westhafer took the C Main.

Dewease set fast time over the 45-car field with a lap of 16.446 seconds.

Jay Krout led on the first circuit of the 20-lap PASS 305 sprint main before Tyler Reeser took over the lead and headed to victory.

A lengthy red flag period on the third lap took place for a four-car tangle in the fourth turn.

The final 17 laps of the race went nonstop witih Reeser winning over Zach Newlin, Ken Duke Jr., Krout and Rick Stief.

Heats went to Colby Dice, Kyle Ganoe and Cale Reigle.

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY

22 April 2017 By Michael Batz

FRANEK HOLDS OFF HODNETT FOR SPRINT CAR GUNN MEMORIAL VICTORY; MATTERN POWERS TO FIRST LATE MODEL WIN OF SEASON; MITCH REPEATS IN ANOTHER CLOSE PRO STOCK FINISH

SELINSGROVE, Pa. -- Davie Franek of Sussex, N.J., scored the $2,500 win over a talented 360 sprint car field in the 30-lap 37th annual Jack Gunn Memorial Saturday night at Selinsgrove Speedway. The victory was Franek’s second in a row at the track this season, 13th career, and first in the Gunn race.

Brad Mitch of McClure joined Franek as repeat winners from last week by taking another close win in the 15-lap pro stock feature. It was Mitch’s 24th career pro stock win.

Hayes Mattern of Beavertown powered to a convincing win in the 25-lap super late model feature. The win was Mattern’s first of the season and third career in super late model racing at Selinsgrove.

Chris Coyle led the field in the early laps of the Jack Gunn Memorial sprint car race. Coyle soon had some pretty strong company with last week’s winner, Davie Franek, and Greg Hodnett closing in. A yellow flag put Coyle back in front of Franek as the field had not completed a lap with Franek at the front.

Franek took advantage of the restart to take the helm while Hodnett followed him through into the second spot on lap eight. A fuel stop was called when Chad Layton and Mark Smith got together in turn two while racing for the fifth spot. Franek paced the field for the next ten laps after the fuel stop before he got into lap traffic. Hodnett quickly closed the gap that Franek had opened up.

Hodnett's opportunity quickly dwindled away as the laps counted down and Franek began to drive away again in traffic. Franek crossed the line to claim his first Jack Gunn Memorial race. Franek said in victory lane he was not sure what to expect after the fuel stop because he didn't feel his car was good on a full fuel load. It made no difference on this night though with Franek winning for the second week in a row.

Hodnett, Curt Michael, Robbie Stillwagon, and Adam Carberry were the top five across the line. Kevin Nagy led the charge for sixth through tenth ahead of Coyle, Josh Weller, Derek Locke, and Larry Kelleher.

Nate Snyder took the Fast Tees Fast Time Award in Memory of Jim Nace. Franek, Stillwagon, Coyle, and Carberry won heat races while Troy Betts took the checkered flag in the consolation event.

Hayes Mattern must have learned from Jeff Rine when Rine used the outside to pass him for the race lead on Saturday in the Jeff's Auto Body and Recycling super model feature event. Rine's car slowed on lap five and Mattern went back to the race lead.

Mattern had moved to the top side of the race track even though Mattern's crew encouraged him to run the inside line in the feature event. But as the race went on it appeared Mattern had made the right choice to stay loyal to the outside line. Mattern fended off challenges from Tony Adams and maneuvered through lap traffic without losing any distance of his lead.

The only moment when the race lead seemed in jeopardy was when Mattern tried to cross over to a clear race track and caught the tail of one of the cars going down a lap. Both drivers recovered quickly allowing Mattern to finish off his bid for his first win of the season. Adams followed Mattern to the checkered flag ahead of Dylan Yoder and a hard charging Kyle Hardy. Chad Hollenbeck rounded out the five finishers. Andy Haus, Steve Campbell, Bryan Bernheisel, Jim Yoder, and Andrew Yoder finished out the top ten. Hollenbeck, Adams, and Rine were heat winners.

Brad Mitch took the race lead away from Dustin Snook with a slide job in turn one on lap two. From that point, it looked like Mitch was locked and loaded for this second straight win heading into the Pro Stock 20 on May 6.

Mitch commanded the field until lap 13 when opening night winner Tommy Slanker pulled to his rear bumper. Slanker hounded Mitch the last two laps of the race, but never could work by the 10m. Mitch, who was under the weather much of the week, claimed the victory over Slanker and John Fowler. Strong runs for AJ Stroup and Dustin Snook were rewarded with top five finishes. AJ Hoffman came from 14th to finish sixth followed by Shawn Lawton, Brandon Moser, Kurt Wray, and Curtis Lawton. Shawn Lawton and Dustin Snook were heat race winners for the Pro Stock field.

There will be no racing next Saturday night April 29th. Selinsgrove Speedway returns at 7 p.m. Saturday, May 6, with the annual Pro Stock 20 presented by A&A Auto Stores. The 360 sprint cars, super late models, and roadrunners will be in action as well. Track gates will open at 5 p.m.

All Stars Invade Port Royal Saturday For Keith Kauffman Classic

Moon Shine Camo® Rt. 35 Dirt Late Model Challenge Series Kicks Off

4/23/17

Port Royal - Tony Stewart’s Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions Sprint Cars will invade Port Royal Speedway on Saturday, April 29 to compete in the Keith Kauffman Classic at 6 pm, presented by Locust Grove Retirement Community.

The Kauffman Classic, honoring the oval’s all time winningest driver in both victories and track titles, will go 30 laps in distance, paying $5,000 to win.

Equally as impressive on April 22 will be the kickoff of the Moon Shine Camo® Rt. 35 Port Royal and Selinsgrove Speedways Dirt Late Model Challenge Series.

The super late models will race in a 25 lap main event paying $2,000 to win and $200 to start.

Both the sprint cars and the super late models will be competing for points in the season-long Weikert’s Livestock sprint car and River Valley Builders late model chase for the Port Royal track title.

General admission gates open at 3 pm for the big event with adult general admission set at $22 and students ages 12 – 18 priced at $10.

The six-race, dual track Moon Shine series has posted a $3,500 guaranteed point fund for the top-five in series points with other prizes posted for the top ten in points.

In addition this year, Moon Shine has posted a $250 award for every driver who enters every series event contested in 2017 that fails to finish in the top ten in series points after the final event in September.

A stellar field of both super late models and super sprint cars is expected.

The All Stars alone will bring touring drivers such as series titlist Chad Kemenah, who already has a win this season, along with Caleb Armstrong, Caleb Helms, Max Stambaugh and many more.

In addition, Dave Blaney has confirmed his entry into the event along with track favorite Lance Dewease.

Dale Blaney is the defending Kauffman Classic winner while Hayes Mattern was victorious in the kickoff of the Moon Shine Series for late models last year.

Packer's Concessions of Centre Hall will pay $100 to set fast time in sprint car time trials.

Kauffman will take part in the event throughout the night on the public address system with commentary and memories, etc.

Marks Comes Off Outlaws Trail To Win Port Royal, Sets New 25-lap Track Record

Jeff Miller becomes first repeat winner of Keystone RaceSaver Challenge for 305s

4/22/17

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Brent Marks of Myerstown took advantage of an unexpected break in his World of Outlaws sprint car schedule to invade Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night and ended up pealing some seven seconds off of the 25-lap track record on his way to a $3,200 payday.

In the 25-lap make-up 2016 RaceSaver Challenge for IMCA 305 sprint cars, Jeff Miller of Huntingdon became the first driver to repeat in the history of the event, dating back to its inception in 2012.

And in the xtreme stock main, Herm Renninger made it two wins in a row.

Nicole Bower jumped from the pole to lead the 410 sprint car feature at the start chased by Curt Stroup and TJ Stutts.

Dale Blaney started seventh in the field and blistered into third on the second tour while Bower streaked away from the field, entering the backmarkers on the sixth circuit.

Blaney was on the move early, working the top and bottom of the track, but made his moves to get into control using the bottom groove.

He got by Stroup for second low in the first and second turns of lap nine and then deep in the third corner was where he overtook Bower for the lead as she worked traffic.

However Blaney wasn’t the only man on the move in what turned out to be a dizzying event that went non-stop as eighth starter Marks took the third spot from Bower on lap 12.

Marks was slinging his No. 19M all around the speedway, working traffic and the leaders at will and drove around Stroup for second with 10 laps to go.

He then spent the next five laps running down leader Blaney before blasting by for control and the victory with five laps left.

Marks then pulled away to the eighth win of his career at the track, taking the checkers 1.266 seconds ahead of Blaney to set a new 25-lap track record of 7:32.949, overtaking the old mark held by Lance Dewease since 1992.

Stroup held on for third followed by TJ Stutts and Ryan Taylor.

Sixth through 10th went to Brock Zearfoss, Doug Esh, Danny Dietrich, Dylan Cisney and Lucas Wolfe.

Heats went to Taylor, Stutts and Bower.

Polesitter Ken Duke Jr. would lead the first 11 laps of the 25-lap Keystone RaceSaver Challenge for 305 sprints before surrendering to Jeff Miller.

Miller started sixth in the main and followed Duke, Zach Newlin and Scott Ellerman for the first nine laps before beginning his march through the top three.

After getting around Ellerman for third with 15 laps to go, he made a sweeping two-car pass of Newlin and Duke to move into the lead with 13 laps to go and then checked out on the field for the victory, worth $1,000.

Following Miller across the line for second, 4.502 seconds behind, was Duke with Ellerman finishing third followed by Newlin and Kyle Ganoe.

Sixth through 10th went to Mark Watkins, Tim Tanner, Dave Brown Jr., Dave Grube and Dylan Shatzer.

Heats went to Ganoe, Tyler Reeser, Miller and Grube with Cale Reigle taking the consolation race.

Fast time was set by Miller with a lap of 17.840 seconds.

Kassidy Kreitz won the eight lap non-qualifiers Founder’s Cup race for the IMCA 305 sprints, earning a guaranteed starting spot in the upcoming 2017 RaceSaver Challenge in October.

Herm Renninger took his second xtreme stock main of the year, driving by Kevin Imes for the victory on the second tour of the 15-lap feature.

Imes held on for second followed by Mike Goodwin, Pete Leister and Bill Powell.

Freddie Rahmer Impresses With Come-From-Behind Williams Grove Sprints Win

Nouse grabs 358 main

4/21/17

Mechanicsburg – Freddie Rahmer stole the show late on Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway, coming forward from the ninth starting spot to record the 410 sprint car win over Cory Haas, who led all but the final two laps.

And in the 358 sprint car main, Kevin Nouse pulled off the same feat, leading only the last two laps, to pick up the feature event.

Cory Haas and Matt Campbell started on the front row of the 410 sprint car feature and Haas took the lead at the start, chased closely by Campbell.

Only one caution flag on the final lap would slow the hectic pace in the feature and before that, both Campbell and Lucas Wolfe took their shots at the win.

Campbell got around Haas for the lead on the third lap only to see Haas reclaim control on the next circuit.

Wolfe meanwhile had started fifth in the field and raced into third on the fifth lap just as Campbell was again mounting a bid for the lead.

But Haas would be up to the challenge and Wolfe then began working on Campbell for second.

It took several laps for Wolfe to get around Campbell for the spot, which he finally did with 11 laps to go thanks to a run in the fourth turn.

Wolfe then set his sights on leader Haas who had been unable to get away from the pack and on the 19th lap Wolfe briefly surged into the lead in the first and second turns only to watch as Haas reclaimed narrow command on the backchute.

And it was then that Rahmer entered the picture, up to fifth and mowing down the field at will.

He took fourth from Rick Lafferty with four to go and at the same time Campbell overtook Wolfe to again run second.

On the 23rd lap, Rahmer blasted from fourth to second, passing by both Campbell and a faltering Wolfe before darting around Haas for the lead in stunning fashion as the white flag unfurled.

But just then Wolfe blew a right rear tire and spun backwards on the frontstretch, causing the lone caution period of the race.

Any potential bid by Haas to regain control proved fruitless on the restart as Rahmer easily drove to the win on the final lap, taking the checkers by .334 seconds.

Campbell rode home third followed by Lafferty and 11th starter Brian Montieth.

Sixth through 10th went to Danny Dietrich, Brock Zearfoss, Greg Hodnett, Doug Esh and Alan Krimes.

Heats went to Campbell, Dietrich and Hodnett with Eric Riggins Jr. taking the consolation.

The win was the seocond of young Rahmer’s career at the oval and it was worth $4,100 including a $500 bonus for winning from the fifth row.

The 358 sprint main saw polesitter Phil Walter take the lead when the green flag came out chased by second starter Eric Parker.

Parker tried his best to get around Walter but Walter was able to thwart his advances and keep a narrow lead even as the race hit the halfway point and worked through traffic.

However third starter Kevin Nouse was racing third and began finding speed in his machine with eight laps to go, racing to the inside of Parker for second with four laps left.

As leader Walter worked traffic, Nouse drew even with him for the lead as the pair crossed the line with two laps to go and together they boldly raced side by side into the first corner, displaying great skill in not colliding.

Walter tried to use the inside lane to seize slight control as the pair raced out of the second turn and again the pair shot into a corner, this time the third turn, side by side but this time Nouse got the upper hand and took the lead with one to go.

Shortly after taking the white flag, the races only caution unfurled, clearing the track for Nouse who was able to pull away on the final lap for his first win of the year at the track.

Parker got by Walter for second on the final lap.

Jared Esh and Doug Hammaker completed the top five

Sixth through 10th went to Brie Hershey, Adrian Shaffer, Scott Fisher, Jordan Givler and Dave Thrush rounded out the top 10.

Heats went to Parker and Shaffer.

LEPPO CLAIMS THIRD CAREER TRAIL-WAY WIN IN 358 SPRINTS;

 Kameron Morral, Eric Johnson, Jason Chronister other Friday night winners

HANOVER, PA (4/21/2017) – Dwight Leppo was in the right place at the right time to win the 358 sprint car feature at Trail-Way Speedway Friday night.

Leppo, who finished second to Steve Owings on opening night, started fourth and was running second when third-starting J.B. Cunningham pulled up lame while leading in turn four of lap 16. He assumed the lead for the restart and led the rest of the way, crossing 1.25 seconds ahead of fifth-starting and defending track champ David Holbrook at the finish.

“It felt pretty good tonight,” said Leppo upon exiting his family-owned Belmit Engineering Development/Joe Mssinger Home Improvements/Auchey Body Shop #4 in victory lane, “It felt good last week, too, but this week worked out better. I like lapped traffic, but it was nice to run where you want to for once.”

Owings, who lost a rear end in his qualifying event and lost several spots when he got out of shape and ran through the infield in the feature, came back to finish third and was named the event’s hard charger after starting ninth. Isaac Sneeringer and Wyatt Hinkle completed the top five.

Sixth through eighth were Joe Trone, Jr., Colt White, and Landon Myers. They were the only cars that finished the race.

Heats for the 16 sprint cars were won by Sneeringer and Holbrook.

Kameron Morral started on the pole and led every lap of the 20-lap 600cc micro-sprint feature for his second career Trail-Way win. Jesse Snyder, Tyler Walton, Nash Ely, and Hannah Riser completed the top five.

Qualifiers for the 17 micros were won by Walton and Snyder.

Eric Johnson started on the outside of the front row and led whole way in the 20-lap season opener for the street stocks. It was Johnson’s fourth career TW win. Michael Goodwin, Brian Walls, Zach Myers, and G.S.B. Asphalt hard charger Travis Leh (who started ninth) rounded out the top five.

Heats for the 12 street stocks were won by Brian Walls and Jeremy Stremmel.

Jason Chronister held off the late race challenges of Justin Wagaman to claim his 15th career Trail-Way win in the 15-lap limited stock feature. Chronister’s final margin of victory was a scant .25 seconds. Terry Hartlaub, Travis Brown, and Justin Oberlin finished third through fifth.

Heats for the 20 limited stocks were won by Wagaman and Chronister.

Next Friday, April 21, 2017, Trail-Way Speedway hosts the Precise Racing Products 358 Late Model Series, along with Mason-Dixon 270 Micro Sprints, Limited Stocks, Vintage Cars and Classic Cars. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. with heats beginning at 7:45 p.m.

UNITED RACING CLUB JACK GUNN MEMORIAL FOR 360 SPRINT CARS THIS SATURDAY AT 7PM; SUPER LATE MODELS & PRO STOCKS ROUND OUT RACING CARD

SELINSGROVE, Pa. -- Selinsgrove Speedway will present the 37th running of the Jack Gunn Memorial for sprint cars at 7 p.m. this Saturday, April 22, sanctioned by the United Racing Club. Joining the 358-360 sprint cars on the racing card will be the super late models and pro stocks. Track gates will open at 5 p.m.

For the 12th consecutive year, the Gunn Memorial will feature a 30-lap race between the traveling URC 360 sprint cars and the track’s weekly 358-360 sprint cars. The race will pay $2,500 to win and $300 to start. Time trials, heats, and a B-Main will be the format for setting the 24-car starting field for the Gunn Memorial.

The tribute race is run each year to honor the memory of the late race track promoter Jack Gunn, who operated Selinsgrove, Williams Grove, Penn National, and Hagerstown Speedways during his career and brought mid-state dirt track racing to national prominence in the 1970’s. Gunn was inducted posthumously into the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame (Knoxville, Iowa) in 1990.

Some of the biggest names in sprint car racing have won the prestigious Jack Gunn Memorial at Selinsgrove Speedway. Lynn Paxton of Dillsburg; Steve Kinser of Bloomington, Ind.; Doug Wolfgang of Sioux Falls, S.D., are a few of the drivers who have won the race as a 410 sprint car event. In the track’s modern era, TJ Stutts of Liverpool, Chad Layton of Harrisburg, Blane Heimbach of Selinsgrove, and Dave Calaman of Carlisle took wins as a 358 sprint car race.

The Gunn Memorial became a URC-sanctioned challenge race between 358 and 360 sprint car drivers in 2006, when Heimbach took the victory as well as in the 2008 and 2012 editions of the race. Calaman (2007); Trevor Lewis of Upper Black Eddy (2009, 2010); Shane Stewart of Indianapolis, Ind. (2011); JJ Grasso of Pedricktown, N.J. (2013); Aaron Ott of East Berlin (2014); and two-time defending winner Mark Smith of Sunbury have also won the Gunn Memorial as a URC-sanctioned event.

While Heimbach and Todd Shaffer of Millerstown are the only two drivers who have won the Gunn Memorial four times at Selinsgrove, Smith will attempt to become the first to win the race three years in a row.

The Middleburg IGA is sponsoring the Gunn Memorial championship trophy.

The super late models will compete in a 20-lap feature paying $1,500 to win, while the pro stocks will race in a 15-lap main event paying $400 to win.

Selinsgrove Raceway Park, the one-fifth mile track located inside of Selinsgrove Speedway’s half-mile oval, will present a complete program of go kart racing at 7 p.m. Friday, April 21. Track gates will open at 5:30 p.m. The second Burris Money Series go kart race of the year will be held at 9:30 a.m. Sunday, April 23.

FRANEK, SCHICK & MITCH TAKE EXCITING SELINSGROVE WINS
SATURDAY ON SUPER RACING SURFACE

SELINSGROVE, Pa. Davie Franek of Wantage, N.J.; Donnie Schick of Middleburg; and Brad Mitch of McClure gave the fans their money's worth in feature racing Saturday at Selinsgrove Speedway. The night’s racing provided stiff battles for the top spots and valued trips to victory lane for each of the winners.

A collective groan went through the Selinsgrove crowd when Mark Smith's name was announced as the polesitter for the 25 lap 360 Sprint Car feature event. It's not that Smith isn't popular among fans, it’s merely the fact that when the fast guy starts up front there is usually little to no chance there will be a pass for the win. That wasn’t the case Saturday night.

Smith bolted to the race lead while second-place starter Davie Franek gave chase. A mid-race yellow proved valuable for Franek as he pulled to the rear bumper of Smith's m1 machine for the restart. Franek rolled around the outside on the restart and challenged Smith before the yellow flag flew when Chad Layton crashed in turn four.

Franek again used the outside on the restart. This time it would pay off with a successful slide job in turn three. Franek was now the race leader with Smith in chase. As Franek closed in on lap traffic in the final stages on the race, Smith would close slightly but not enough as Franek picked up his first win of the season.

“It's rare you pass Mark Smith for a win,” Franek said in victory lane afterward, thanking his crew for their many hours in the shop to help them get the win. Smith crossed the line second ahead of opening night winner Jason Shultz. Mallie Shuster and Michael Walter completed the top five finishers. Layton and Shultz took heat races.

Donnie Schick has not been to victory lane at Selinsgrove since 2011 in the Jeff's Auto Body Super Late Models. In the opening night feature event Schick looked like he might end that streak before a misjudged lap car took him out of the race lead. Schick came back this weekend and was out for redemption for himself, his race team, and his legion of fans.

Schick had challenges from Tony Adams and Danny Snyder, but neither ever posed a real threat to Schick. Schick crossed the line for the win in what he called an unbelievable moment. Adams and Snyder closed out the podium finishers. Jim Bernheisel made a rare Late Model start and drove to fourth with Dave Zona closing out the top five. Danny Snyder was the heat race winner.

The A&A Auto Stores Pro Stocks usually roll off as the first feature of the night. On this night, they made for a hard act to follow. Tommy Slanker was carrying all the momentum in the class after winning the season opener and jumping to the early race lead Saturday. On a lap four restart defending champion Brad Mitch, making his season debut, made a big move to slide into the race lead. Slanker crossed Mitch over and took the top spot back as the two continued the exchange.

Mitch would come away with the top spot after the two leaders "traded some paint" in the battle. Slanker lost some ground on lap 12 after slipping above the racing groove. Slanker quickly recovered and closed the gap with one lap to go. Even with Slanker's advances Mitch held on for his first win of the season. Slanker was second ahead of John Fowler, Brandon Moser, and Kyle Bachman. Fowler and Mitch came across the line first in heat races.

Selinsgrove Speedway will sanction the first race of the season with the United Racing Club next Saturday, April 22. The 360 Sprint Cars will compete in the 37th annual Jack Gunn Memorial race. The Super Late Models and Pro Stocks will also be on the racing card. There has been a start time change with the racing rolling off at 7pm rather than the original 6pm scheduled time. Track gates will open at 5pm.

KENNY EDKIN SCORES FIRST CAREER SPORTSMAN WIN Charles Potts, Alex Updegraff and Mike Potts Visit Victory Lane By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA…4/15/17 Kenny Edkin turned a late race pass into his first career Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman feature win Saturday night at Susquehanna Speedway.

Edkin threw everything he had at leader Doug Dodson during the 25-lap Super Sportsman feature but a late race caution put the field in a double file restart and Edkin was able to make the race winning pass on the 24th lap for that first career win.

Veteran Rich Eichelberger led the first three laps before giving way to Dodson, who started alongside Eichelberger on the front row.

Dodson maintained the top spot during several yellows as Edkin, who started 11th had worked his way into contention and was running second with defending champion Russ Mitten brought out a yellow flag on lap 22 when his car suffered a blown motor.

This set up the thrilling finish that saw Edkin drive his Edkin’s Towing, Marysville MotorCars, Carlisle Auto Salvage, King Spin Pizza and Subs, Rich Valley Black Walnuts No. 75 to victory lane for the first time ever.

Dodson settled for the runner-up finish ahead of 19th starting Scott Dellinger (Artwerks, Thompson Lawn Car, Brown & Miller Racing Solutions HardCharger), 15th starting Mike Enders and Davey Walsh as Garrett Williamson came from 22nd to sixth ahead of Eichelberger, Jay Fannasy, Timmie Barrick and Chad Smith.

Gregg Foster, Mitten, Edkin and Tony Jackson won heats for the 33 Super Sportsman. Nate Young won the consolation. Jackson’s heat race win was a New Track Record.

Charles Potts passed Steve Billet on the 10th lap and drove away from the field to post the win in the 25-lap Bernheisel Race Cars 358 Late Model feature.

Potts, who became the fourth different winner in four events, dedicated his win to his sister Victoria, who passed away two weeks ago.

Billet rode home second trailed by point leader Brad Shank, Justin Ehrhart and Ben Whitaker with Cameron Benyou, Steve Billet, Sean Merkel, Eric Hohol and Cory Merkel completing the top ten.

Steve Billet and Whitaker won heats for the 14-car field.

Not to be outdone by his nephew, Mike Potts raced home with the win in the 20-lap Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stock feature.

Starting eighth, the defending street stock champ ran second until using a final lap pass on leader Scott Thunberg. Potts became the third different winner in three races this season.

Thunberg, Jim Palm, Matt Adams and 10th starting Dalton Frye completed the top five finishers followed by Kevin Sigler, Joey Hoffer, Chris Derr, Craig Morgan and Sam Leonard, Jr.

Chris Derr and Eddie Richards won heats for the 20 street stocks.

Alex Updegraff became the first repeat winner in Susquehanna action this season as the defending champion took the checkered flag in the 20-lap Superior Homes Extreme Stock feature.

Updegraff led the final seven laps to pick up his second win of the season over Patrick McClane, early leader Kyle Emig, Brandon Staccone and Ronnie Buck.

Updegraff and Emig were heat winners for the 12-car field.

Susquehanna Speedway returns to action Saturday night, April 22 on R.E. Fink & Son Night as the Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman, Bernheisel Race Cars 358 Late Models and Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stocks will see action. The EMMR cars will also on hand. Race time is 7PM.

Brenneman Out Duels Rine For Impressive Port Royal Late Model Win

Zearfoss wires for win in 410 sprints, Shaun Miller takes econo late models

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

4/15/17

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Upstart driver Trent Brenneman of Port Royal turned in an impressive performance resembling that of a seasoned veteran in the 22-lap super late model main at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night, out-dueling late model star Jeff Rine for the first victory of his career at the historic oval where his grandfather Butch Renninger drove to numerous wins and track titles.

In the 25-lap 410 sprint car main, Brock Zearfoss of Jonestown held off TJ Stutts to record his first win of the year at the track while Tower City’s Shaun Miller won the econo late model main to close the night.

Both Brenneman and Rine started on the front row of the super late model main and the pair spent the first five laps exchanging the lead at will with each set of turns.

Rine would repeatedly overtake Brenneman for control in the second corner while Brenneman would use the bottom to perfection in the fourth turn to lead the majority of the laps at the line with the exception of the third circuit when Rine’s nose was ahead at the stripe.

Only a caution flag broke up the neck and neck action just before lap six could be scored but the battle continued when action resumed.

Brenneman was holding a .367 advantage over Rine on the ninth tour when another caution bunched the field.

And again a war on wheels was waged when action resumed with Brenneman holding his low line to keep control despite constant powering blasts on the top side by Rine and then finally on the 11th tour Rine was able to take the lead by a scant .014 seconds at the stripe.

After that Brenneman kept trying to work his bottom groove but with time he strayed to the topside trying to find more speed and that he did as lap after lap he pulled closer to pacesetter Rine’s rear deck lid.

Brenneman was clearly gaining significant ground as he blasted off of the cushion in the fourth turn and when the pair shot onto the frontstretch on the 19th lap Brenneman crossed over in the middle of the straightaway, pulling off of Rine’s bumper to use a lapped car as a pick as he entered the first corner.

When Brenneman went low on the backmarker, he pushed that car up the track in front of Rine and that allowed him to secure control once more, this time again scored the leader with just two laps to go.

Brenneman was then able to put enough daylight between himself and Rine to focus on two smooth laps and while that was happening, Coleby Frye came blasting under Rine for second with a lap to go while also closing on Brenneman.

But the win went to Brenneman by .813 seconds and a joyous victory lane erupted for the ever-improving local driver with deep ties to the oval.

Rine and Frye were the first people into victory lane to congratulate Brenneman on his victory.

Dan Stone rode home fourth followed by Nick Dickson, Andy Haus, 20th starter Mason Zeigler, Devin Friese, Mike Lupfer and Dave Brouse Jr.

Heats for the 23 late models went to Dickson, Frye and Friese with Chris Casner setting fast time in time trials with a lap of 18.804 seconds.

Zearfoss saw two red flags and two yellows slow his race winning pace in the 410 sprint car main.

The first caution flag unfurled with three laps recorded when Doug Esh looped his car in the fourth corner while trying to avoid a collision with Mike Wagner as the pair raced for fifth.

Esh rejoined at the rear and eventually came back to finish eighth.

The ensuing restart saw Aaron Ott get sideways in the second turn, collecting Jimmy Seger who turned over as Ott righted his car and drove away.

TJ Stutts took second from Tyler Bear on the restart and would follow Zearfoss the rest of the distance.

At the halfway point Zearfoss held a 4.858 second lead over Stutts however a red with three laps to go stopped the pace again, this time for Curt Stroup who turned over after slamming into the inside first turn barrier.

The restart gave Stutts a chance at a flyer but Zearfoss was just too far around to complete the slider, instead forcing Stutts to ride home second by .449 seconds.

Rick Lafferty took third from Mike Wagner on that final restart with Wagner ending up fourth and Aaron Ott fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Tyler Bear, Blane Heimbach, Doug Esh, Logan Wagner and Kevin Nouse.

Heats went to Steve Buckwalter, Esh and Zearfoss.

Shaun Miller started second in the 18-lap econo late model main and held off Eric Irvin for the win after Irvin chased him for the entire distance.

Todd Snook took third at the finish after moving into the spot with three laps to go.

Tim Fedder and JR Toner completed the top five while sixth through 10th went to Derrick Garman, Tim Krape, Andrew Shoop, Garrett Gray and Jason Davis.

Twin heats went to Miller and Krape.

LUCAS WOLFE CLAIMS $5,000 TOP PRIZE IN LEFFLER ENERGY 410 SPRINT CAR SPRING CHAMPIONSHIP;

Halligan holds off Shearer for 358 sprint car win

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 4/15/2017 –Lucas Wolfe grabbed the lead at the outset from polesitter Greg Hodnett and led every lap to claim the $5,000 top prize in Saturday’s Leffler Energy Spring Championship for 410 sprint cars at Lincoln Speedway.

Despite torrid racing in behind, none of the heavy hitters were able to catch the Michael Barshinger-owned Embee & Son #24 as Wolfe claimed his fourth career Lincoln win.

Time trials, qualifying, and an inversion draw put Hodnett and Wolfe on the front row, with last week’s winner Gerard McIntyre, Jr. and Billy Dietrich on row two, and Danny Dietrich and five-time champ Brian Montieth on row three. Row four was just as impressive, with defending champ Alan Krimes and Chad Trout.

Montieth was the hard charger through the mid stages of the race, getting around Danny Dietrich with six laps to go and closing on the winner in lapped traffic at the end.

“It’s certainly important we have a good opportunity to start way up,” said Wolfe in victory lane, “These time trial races normally play into my hands and give me a good opportunity. I’ve been able to capitalize on them the last couple of years. It’s fortunate to start the season here this way.”

“We’ve been pretty competitive I thought, but things just haven’t gone right,” said Wolfe, “It was good to put a whole night together. Obviously, there’s tremendous competition there at the front on these types of races, so the start was certainly critical. Both Brian and Danny have been good here all year, and have a lot of laps and wins here, so I’m enjoying the opportunity to run here a little more and hopefully, be able to keep this amount of competitiveness going and move forward and be strong all year.”

Third through fifth behind Wolfe and Montieth were Danny Dietrich, Hodnett, and Krimes. Sixth through tenth were McIntyre, 13th-starting Tyler Ross, Trout, Robbie Kendall, and 18th-starting Kyle Moody.

Heats for the 410 Sprints were won by Montieth, Krimes, and Trout, with Freddie Rahmer winning the consolation after failing to qualify in his heat and missed the inversion. Fast time in time trials over the 28-car field was set by Freddie Rahmer with a one-lap time of 13.391-seconds (100.814 MPH).

Like Wolfe, Jeff Halligan drove to his fourth career Lincoln win in the 20-lap “358” sprint car feature.

The event included an 11-car melee in turn two of lap seven when Wyatt Hinkle and Adrian Shaffer made contact, sending Hinkle into a spin and collecting ten other cars. Shaffer was able to keep moving and was placed third for the restart. While he had his hands full over the remainder of the event with tenth-starting and defending champ Chandler Leiby, Halligan was busy trying to hold off the race-long challenges of early race leader Brent Shearer.

Shearer started fourth and led the first two laps before Halligan claimed the lead on a lap three restart. Though Halligan led the rest of the way, Shearer wouldn’t go away, and crossed a close second.

Third through fifth were Shaffer, Leiby, and Cody Fletcher. Sixth through tenth were 14th-starting Kyle Denmyer, Matt Findley, Ashley Cappetta, Todd Rittenhouse, Jr., and Steve Wilbur.

Heats for the 26 358 Sprints were won by Shaffer, Phil Walter, and Halligan, with Trey Hivner winning the consolation.

Next Saturday, April 22nd, Lincoln Speedway will hold a 3-division show featuring the 410 Sprints, 358 sprints, and Central PA Legends at 7 PM. Gates open at 5 PM.

PRS 2017 – Racing through a new decade with a new attitude! Port Royal Speedway

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

MRN's Winged Nation To Broadcast Live At Port Royal Weikert Memorial Weekend May 27/28

4/15/17

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Motor Racing Network’s hit TV show and podcast Winged Nation is headed to historic Port Royal Speedway on May 27 and 28 as part of the Bob Weikert Memorial race weekend.

Co-hosts Steve Post and Ashley Stremme will be on location at “The Speed Palace” in Central Pennsylvania broadcasting two shows on stage behind the grandstands from 5-6pm ET prior to each night’s races.

Winged Nation will not only be seen by the live racing audience, but can also be heard anywhere around the world on MRN.com and the free MRN App.

“Memorial Day weekend has the Indianapolis 500 and the Coca Cola 600”, said Post.

“But if you’re a dirt track or sprint car fan, the Bob Weikert Memorial is the event you want to attend. Ashley and I can’t wait to bring Winged Nation to Port Royal Speedway. There is nothing like doing the show in front of passionate race fans.”

For co-host Ashley Stremme the trip means heading back to place she calls home.

The current Mrs. United States is from Mifflintown, PA, just a couple miles away from the historic Juniata County Fairgrounds, home to Port Royal Speedway. She grew up watching her Dad race sprint cars around the famous half-mile dirt track

“I am so happy to be heading home and bringing Winged Nation to the great Port Royal fans”, said Stremme.

“The Bob Weikert Memorial is one of the premiere sprint car races in the world and to be a part of it is going to be so much fun.”

Winged Nation, now in its sixth season, is streamed live each Tuesday from 12 to 12:30 p.m. (EDT) exclusively at www.MRN.com. It also can be seen Saturdays at 9:30 a.m. (EDT) on MAVTV Motorsports Network.

The show was voted 2017 Media Member of the Year award by the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame, an honor they have won for five straight years.

 

 

Dewease Scores 86th Win In Williams Grove Sprints,

Shaffer gets fourth 358 opener in a row

4/14/17

Mechanicsburg – Lance Dewease scored big on Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway, taking the 25-lap 410 sprint car main in his first appearance of the year at the track to boost his career win total there to 86 which is just four wins shy of the all time win mark at the historic oval.

In the 358 sprint main it was Adrian Shaffer taking the season opener for the division at the track which turned out to be his fourth victory in a row in the Williams Grove lidlifter for the 358s.

Danny Dietrich drew the pole to start the 410 sprint car main and after a strong showing in his heat, Dietrich may have been poised to run off with the victory but Dewease had other thoughts.

After starting fourth in the field, Dewease streaked around the cars of Steve Buckwalter and Alan Krimes in the first corner of the opening lap to be along side Dietrich for control in the second corner.

Dietrich tried to hold Dewease back and pulled ahead for a lap or so but to no avail as the Fayetteville flyer drove through the middle of the turns to net control on the third circuit.

After getting control, Dewease pulled away from Dietrich and was just entering the backmarkers on the ninth tour when the races first caution flag unfurled.

Dewease got away again on the restart and was again poised to enter traffic with eight laps to go when TJ Stutts brought out the red flag after a tumble on the backstretch.

Dietrich could do nothing with Dewease at the new green as he again jetted away, this time to the victory that he took by 2.457 seconds at the finish.

With his eyes set on the top prize of becoming the all time Williams Grove Speedway winner, Dewease said in victory lane that his next try at a Williams Grove win will be in two weeks when the All Stars invade for the running of the Tommy Hinnershitz Classic.

Following Dietrich across the line at the finish was a very competitive Freddie Rahmer, Alan Krimes and Steve Buckwalter.

Sixth through 10th went to Mark Smith, Doug Esh, Chad Trout, Lucas Wolfe and Greg Hodnett

Heats for the 36 cars in action went to Krimes, Rahmer, Dietrich and Esh with the consolation going to Matt Campbell.

Shaffer wired the field for the win in the 358 sprint car main to open the class’ season at the track.

Matt Findley trailed Shaffer for the entire distance but was never able to challenge.

Eric Parker moved from 10th starting spot to finish third followed by Brie Hershey and Doug Hammaker.

Sixth thorugh 10th went to Jared Esh, Kevin Nouse, Jordan Givler, Chris Frank and Nyle Berkes.

Heats went to Troy Wagaman Jr. and Doug Hammaker.

OWINGS TAKES TRAIL-WAY SEASON OPENER FOR 358 SPRINTS; MARRIOTT WINS 270 MICRO FEATURE; CHANEY HOLDS OFF PASCOE IN CENTRAL PA LEGENDS; CARROLL TAKES LEAD ON FINAL TURN TO CLAIM LIMITED STOCK MAIN

HANOVER, PA (4/14/2017) – “It’s nice to win the first time out.”

So said Steve Owings after claiming the opening night win in Friday’s 25-lap “358” sprint car feature.

Owings started third, slid under race-long leader Dwight Leppo for the front spot exiting turn two of lap 20, and scored his 11th career Trail-Way win in a non-stop time of six minutes, seven seconds.

“Dwight drove a hell-of-a race,” said Owings upon exiting the Rodney Valentine Westminster Lawn/B&D Truck Hoist #35 in victory lane, “Thank goodness for lapped traffic. I don’t think I could have caught him without it.”

Leppo, who led the first 19 laps, crossed second, followed by fifth-starting Isaac Sneeringer, J.B. Cunningham, and polesitter Cody Fletcher, who drew a “0” pill for the inversion after winning the first heat.

Sixth through tenth were defending track champ and hard charger David Holbrook (who started 11th), Steve Storrie, Wyatt Hinkle, Joe Trone, Jr., and Austin Kirby.

“We’re going to be back in the 410’s tomorrow night (at Lincoln), but we’ll be back here as much as we can,” said Owings, “I love Trail-Way. If didn’t like this, you shouldn’t be here.”

Heats for the 14 “358” sprint cars were won by Fletcher and Leppo.

Brian Marriott came from tenth starting spot to win the Mason Dixon 270cc micro-sprint feature. It was Marriott’s sixth career Trail-Way win.

Joe Long, Jr. started on the pole and led the first nine laps before Marriott made the race-winning pass on a tenth-lap restart. Jim Young, Michael Boer, and Mike Rutherford rounded out the top five.

Qualifiers for the 18 micros were won by Marriott and Rutherford.

Mason Chaney scored the win in a wild 20-lap Central PA Legends feature that saw him lead laps two through four, and lap six through 20. Polesitter Bill Diehl led the fist lap and Hayden Pascoe led lap five in a multi-car battle at the front of the field. In the end, Chaney crossed .34 seconds ahead of Pascoe, with Diehl, Justice Forbes, and Chad Earnst rounding out the top five.

Stephen Wurtzer received the Legends hard charger award ($50 gift card to Advanced Auto Parts) provided by Brian Blank. Wurtzer started 21st and finished 12th. Heats for the 23 Legends were won by Chaney, Pascoe, and Diehl.

The 15-lap limited stock feature was also a wild one, with Matt Chronister dropping from the field while leading on lap 11 and brother Jason Chronister slowing while leading on the final turn.

Picking up his ninth career win was Robbie Carroll, who also won by .34 seconds. Chronister was able to hang on to second, with Justin Wagaman, Charles Millender, and Terry Hartlaub completing the top five.

Qualifiers for the 20 limited stocks were won by Chad Weaver and Jason Chronister.

Next Friday, April 21, 2017, Trail-Way Speedway hosts the Hoosier Tire Mid-Atlantic 358 Sprint Cars along with the Limited Stocks, Street Stocks and 600 Micro Sprints. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. with heats beginning at 7:45 p.m. It will be the first of two consecutive “Student Night’s.” Present your student identification at the admission gate to receive free general admission.

LOGAN WAGNER UPSET WINNER IN BAPS 410 OPENER! Doug Hammaker Impressive in 358's

By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA…4/9/17

It’s no secret that Logan Wagner hasn’t had much success at Susquehanna Speedway in a 410 Sprint car.

So what does a driver do about that? Go back and put on a show.

And that’s exactly what the young Harrisonville, PA driver did in Sunday night’s 30-lap BAPS Auto Paints and Supplies 410 Sprint Series feature.

“First race here last year, I wadded it up on the opening going into one and the last time we were here, we dumped it in three and ended up wadding it up again and everybody said why are you going back to Susky, every time you go there you wreck and I said I’m going there to win and we did, it was badass man,” stated Wagner after his popular upset win and first ever 410 sprint car win at the York Haven oval.

Not only did Wagner win, but he made a move on a lap 16 restart that saw him drive by both leader Doug Esh and runner-up Greg Hodnett as the trio raced into the first turn. That move was the race winning move and Wagner would never look back enroute to the $3,200 payday.

Kyle Reinhardt grabbed the lead early in the event and held the point until a lap five restart, when Esh got into him in turn two sending Reinhardt’s No. 91 into a series of flips.

Esh would leave until the lap 16 restart when Wagner took the lead as eighth starting Greg Hodnett moved by Esh on lap 17 and was racing a car length behind Wagner when his right rear tire exploded with 23 laps in.

Wagner again held the point on the restart, keeping Esh and Lance Dewease at bay and as Esh and Dewease battled, Wagner drove off aboard his All Things Automotive #7W sprinter to score the win.

“We’re negative five grand in the bank account for racing and the only option is to win,” Wagner said.

Wagner drew the #1 envelope in victory lane and was presented another $500 bonus from race sponsor Wintermyers Auto Salvage. Wagner donated half of that bonus to Reinhardt for his “bad luck.”

Esh finished second ahead of Dewease, Brock Zearfoss and Freddie Rahmer with Aaron Ott, 21st starter Lucas Wolfe, Brian Montieth, Alan Krimes and Chad Trout.

Ott, Krimes and Dewease won heats for the 28 410 Sprints. Tyler Ross was the consolation winner.

Doug Hammaker muscled his way around leader Chandler Leiby on a lap 14 restart and drove to the win in the 25-lap 358 Sprint car feature.

Leiby led the first 13 laps from his pole starting spot but Hammaker, who started third got the upper hand on the restart for the race winning move.

Leiby settled for the runner-up finish ahead of Kevin Nouse, Steve Owings and 13th starting Brent Shearer with Todd Gracey, Cody Fletcher, Chris Frank, Jeff Halligan and Dwight Leppo completing the top ten.

Heats for the 29 358 Sprints were won by Gracey, Steven Drevicki and Nouse with JB Cunningham winning the consolation.

Next up on the BAPS Auto Paints and Supplies 410 Sprint Series event will be the Select Collision Kevin Gobrecht Classic presented by Hessiron.com on Sunday, May 7 honoring the life of the late 410 Sprint car star and brother of Susquehanna Speedway track owner Scott Gobrecht. Racing will begin at 7 PM.

SHULTZ WIRES FIELD FOR OPENING DAY 360 SPRINT CAR VICTORY; RINE SHINES IN LATE MODEL OPENER;SLANKER SCORES PRO STOCK THRILLER

SELINSGROVE, Pa. -- The gates swung open for the 55th consecutive season opener at Selinsgrove Speedway Saturday night presented by Insinger Performance Sunoco Race Fuels/Stinger Racing Alcohol.

Carlise native Jason Shultz took the $2,500-to-win opening 360 Sprint Car Spring Showdown event that was co-sanctioned with Empire Super Sprints. Danville’s Jeff Rine claimed his second opening night win in a row in the Late Model main event and Tommy Slanker of York was the Pro Stock winner.

Shultz led the field for the first 16 laps under the green flag while trying to maneuver around lap traffic. Schultz had his hands full when he came upon two lap cars battling side by side while Davie Franek closed in from the second spot. Franek wasn’t the only one closing in on the leaders. Chad Layton had moved into third and was also closing in on the lead duo. A yellow flag flew on Lap 16 that settled the action. Shultz used the open race track to open the lead back up on the field before action slowed again for a lap 19 yellow flag.

At that point in the race Nate Snyder was running the quickest laps in the field and was into the fourth spot. Franek was stout on the next restart staying right with Shultz into turn one. Snyder also continued his charge moving into third spot.Although Shultz was challenged, he was able to pull away in the final two laps to secure the victory over Franek and Snyder. Layton was fourth and Larry Kelleher finished out the top five. Steve Collins, Derek Locke, Colby Womer, Troy Betts, and Ryan Kissinger rounded out the top ten finishers. Heat races went to Larry Kelleher and Nate Snyder for the Sprint Cars.

Bryan Bernheisel won the heat race for the Late Models. The redraw did not fall into Bernheisel’s favor with a draw of four. Donnie Schick benefited by starting on the pole and leading the race early. Schick was using a different line on the outside of the speedway than the drivers chasing him, Steve Campbell and Jeff Rine.

As Schick came upon lap traffic he had to make a quick decision that paid off by clearing the first lap car. He would not fair as well on the second car to go a lap down. Schick used the inside line along with Campbell. As if Rine could see the future he slid to the outside of the race track to go by the top two into the top spot. Rine struggled a little in dirty air as he dealt with some lap traffic which allowed Campbell to again close, but Rine would clear the lap car and drive to his second opening night win in a row.

Campbell, Bernheisel, Tony Adams, and Hayes Mattern made up the top five across the line. Meade Hahn, Dan Green, Schick, Ernie Millon, and Nate Long crossed the line as the top ten.

Brandon Moser brought the field to the green flag in the A&A Auto Stores season opener before his car stumbled and handed the race lead over to Shawn Lawton. Lawton raced in the lead just ahead of Tommy Slanker. Slanker closed the point paying races out with a victory last season and looked to carry that momentum into victory lane in the season opener for 2017.

Slanker made his move on lap five on the outside of the race leader Lawton. Lawton stayed in hot pursuit of the race leader until the closing laps when Lawton began to reel the leader back in. As the white flag flew Lawton had pulled even with the race leader before a red flag flew for John Shock who had an engine fire on the backstretch. Shock was okay.

Slanker sat ten feet shy of the finish line, but now he had to hold off the field in a one lap shootout. On the restart, third place running Kyle Bachman drove to the inside of Lawton and Slanker drifted away. Lawton made his final bid out of turn four, but fell just short as Slanker claimed the opening night win after finishing second in the opening event a year ago. Lawton came home in second followed by Bachman, John Fowler, and Moser. Dustin Snook came from last to finish sixth just ahead of Bill Conrad, Nate Stroup, Curtis Lawton, and John Shock. AJ Hoffman and Kyle Bachman won heat races for the Pro Stocks.

In memory of late Pro Stock driver Jim Payne the leader on the fourth lap of the feature, Shawn Lawton, and fourth place finisher John Fowler received bonus money. Payne raced the number 4 for many years at the speedway and passed away last fall.

Cold temperatures kept a few teams hibernating at the Season Opener. Next week at Selinsgrove Speedway the 360 Sprint Cars will be back in action along with the Super Late Models and the Pro Stocks. Start time will remain at 6 p.m.

GENE KNAUBS DOMINATES FOR 358 LATE MODEL WIN Newlin takes 305 Sprints, McClane Gets Extreme Stocks and Chaney is Legends Winner By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA…4/8/17

Put Gene Knaub on the pole of any race and nine chances out of ten, the race will be for the runner-up spot.

That’s exactly what happened in Saturday night’s Bernheisel Race Cars 358 Late Model main at Susquehanna Speedway as the Dover driver drew the pole position for the 25-lap feature and led green to checkered to pick up his first win of the season. It was also Knaub’s first start of the year at the York Haven track.

Knaub was slowed by six cautions during the event, including a late race yellow with 19 laps complete but that didn’t slow him down from becoming the third different winner in as many races this season, driving under the checkered flag ahead of point leader and defending track champ Randy Christine, Jr. who started eighth. Chase Billet moved up from 10th to finish third with Daulton Bigler earning the ArtWerks Hard Charger Award after advancing from 15th to fourth. Fifth went to Sean Merkel followed by Justin Ehrhart, Sam Rial, Cory Merkel, Dave Latsha and Matt Murphy.

Heats winners for the 18 car field were Taylor Farlling and Knaub.

Zach Newlin picked up the season opening win for the Freedmont® Mortgage Lending PASS IMCA Sprints.

Mark Watkins set the early pace, leading until a lap seven red flag for Nick Sweigart, who flipped.

Under the red flag, Watkins’ team made a wing adjustment and was disqualified from the race by PA Sprint Club officials.

Newlin assumed command held on despite many more caution flags during the 20 lap feature.

Tyler Reeser came from his 19th staring spot to finish second earning the Artwerks Hard Charger with Ken Duke, Jr., Kyle Ganoe and Stephanie Dodson completing the top five finishers. Sixth through tenth were Dave Brown, Scott Ellerman, Alex Potosky, Billy Ney and Jaremi Hanson.

Rick Stief, Darren Miller and Ellerman won heats for the 27 305 Sprints. Reeser was the consolation winner.

Patrick McClane and defending track champ Alex Updegraff exchanged the top spot several times before McClane got the upper hand with 11 laps complete and drove to his first win of the year in thee 20-lap Superior Homes Extreme Stock feature. Updegraff settled for the runner-up finish ahead of Keith Bissinger, Kyle Emig and Ronnie Buck.

Michael Smith was the single heat winner for the 11 car field.

Mason Chaney took the lead from Harlon Leppo on lap four of the 20-lap ServiceMaster Clean Central PA Legends feature and never looked back in taking his first win of the season.

Chaney survived five caution periods before the win over Scott Houdeshell, Jeff Herbst, 15th starting Rick Hartwig and 11th starting Chris Transeau with 24th starting Chandler Pagotta, Scott Smith, Justin Mitchell, Bill Diehl and Leppo completing the top ten finishers.

Hayden Pascoe, Travis McClelland, Bob Stough and Travis Perry won heats for the 35 Legends with Trent Yoder winning the consolation.

Susquehanna Speedway returns to action Saturday, April 15 on Legends of Susquehanna Night presented by Hanover Auto Team.

Esh Goes Two For Two In Port Royal Sprints, Lupfer Wins Late Models

Snook and Renninger split support stock cars

4/8/17

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Doug Esh went two for two on Saturday night at Port Royal Speedway, claiming his second sprint car win in as many weeks at the track, besting Greg Hodnett both times for the victory.

Elsewhere, Mike Lupfer was in the right place at the right time to go on and record his first win of the season in the super late model main after having raced his way into second behind leader Dylan Yoder.

And in the econo late model main it was Todd Snook taking the win while Herm Renninger made a return to racing after several years off the track to take the xtreme stock main.

Fourth starter Esh of Lancaster blasted right through the middle of the front row when the green flag appeared in the 410 sprint car main to blister by Ryan Taylor and Dale Blaney for immediate control.

Esh then just rocketed away with the lead, entering the backmarkers on the fifth tour.

Blaney settled into second with Hodnett third during the early going but the pace was slowed with 10 laps away for a stopped Logan Wagner, who had been running in fifth.

Hodnett finally muscled his way around Blaney with 13 laps to go and set his sights on leader Esh but Esh again was way out in front and again working the rear of the field.

However Esh’s fortunes changed a bit with seven laps to go when he slammed the frontstretch wall, allowing Hodnett to gain some ground.

With his mount still underneath him, Esh did his best to stay ahead of Hodnett during the late stages albeit a faltering advantage as the laps ticked down.

In the end, Hodnett was 1.469 seconds behind as the pair crossed the finish line. The win was the ninth of Esh’s career at the Port Royal oval.

Blaney rode home third followed by Ryan Taylor, Dylan Cisney, TJ Stutts, Steve Buckwalter, Aaron Ott, Mike Wagner and AJ Flick.

Heats for the 30 sprint cars went to Hodnett, Blaney and Taylor with Kody Lehman taking the consolation race. Fast time in time trials went to Stutts with a lap of 16.561 seconds.

Matt Parks took the lead from the pole in the 22-lap super late model main followed by Dylan Yoder on the first lap.

Yoder immediately challenged for the lead and raced back and forth with Parks for control before finally securing the spot on the sixth tour and driving away from the rest of the pack.

For the third week in a row Yoder was leading the late model main, looking as if he was headed to the win and for the third week in a row, mechanical failure ended his bid for a victory.

The red flag appeared on the 12th circuit when flames erupted under Yoder’s hood, handing the lead over to Mike Lupfer.

Lupfer had started sixth in the field and raced his way to the front, taking second from Parks with 12 laps to go.

Parks tried to challenge for the win on the restart but with time, Lupfer was able to pull away for the checkers by .248 seconds over Parks.

Trent Brenneman rode home third followed by Coleby Frye, Andy Haus, Devin Friese, Tim Wilson, Chad Hollenbeck, Dave Brouse Jr., and Tim Smith Jr.

Heats for the 20 late models went to Frye and Brenneman.

Todd Snook wired the field for the win in the 18-lap econo late model feature.

Defending division champion Devin Hart challenged early and late for the win but Snook proved up to the challenge.

After surrendering second to Andrew Yoder, who also challenged Snook for the win, Hart reclaimed the spot during the last several laps only to lose it on the final lap as he made a bid for the lead.

Yoder ended up second followed by Hart, Shaun Miller, Eric Irvin, Tim Krape, Tim Fedder, Derrick Garman, Harold Ranck Jr., and Jared Fulkroad.

Heats went to Hart and Tim Krape.

Herm Renninger took the lead from Daren Rice on the second lap of the 15-lap xtreme stock feature to record the victory over Bill Powell.

The 2004 enduro dash champion at the track, Renninger was away from racing for years before making a comeback in 2017 to win in his debut.

Smith Cope, Walt Peters and Darren Rice rounded out the top five.

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Sat., April 15, 2017 - LEFFLER ENERGY NIGHT: 410 Sprint SPRING CHAMPIONSHIP and 358 Sprints (Time Trials @ 7 PM)

Sat., April 22, 2017 - 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints, and Central PA Legends (Racing @ 7 PM)

MCINTYRE SCORES FIRST LINCOLN WIN SINCE 2015 IN “410” SPRINT CAR MAIN;

Gracey in victory lane for the first time in 19 years; Wayne Dutterer tops street stock field

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 4/8/2017 – Sometimes you have to slow down to go fast. And that’s exactly what Gerard McIntyre, Jr. did to claim his first win of the year in the 25-lap “410” sprint car feature at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

“I wasn’t here (victory lane) at all last year,” reflected McIntyre upon exiting his Weaver’s Body Shop #16 in victory lane, “It make it a lot easier when you have a real good car. And that’s what Dad gave me here tonight. He just did a phenomenal job. I didn’t really have to drive the thing. Anywhere I wanted to go I just kinda’ drove around them.

Handicapping put McIntyre on the outside of row three for the start. Outside front row starter Scott Fisher led the first two laps before fourth-starting Brandon Rahmer took the lead on lap three. McIntyre caught Rahmer for the top spot on lap 16 and led the rest of the way, crossing 2.72 seconds in front of Rahmer.

“Brandon was there on the top where I wanted to be, and I went to the bottom and saw the rubber there,” said the New Oxford driver, “Once I got around him, I slowed down enough to stay on the rubber. I figured that was the best place to be. I was complacent anyway.”

Third through fifth were Matt Campbell (who returned from a vicious crash the week before), 11th-starting Danny Dietrich, and Brian Montieth, who came from 20th starting spot. Fisher settled for sixth, and was followed by Tyler Ross, Jim Siegel, Alan Krimes, and 16th-starting Lucas Wolfe.

“I can’t tell you how much this win means,” said McIntyre in victory lane, “My dad did a really great job tonight. I thought he really screwed it up, but apparently not, huh?”

Heats for the 28 410 Sprints were won by Chase Dietz, Krimes, and Danny Dietrich, with Ryan Smith winning the consolation.

Former 410 sprint car regular and six-time career winner Todd Gracey scored his first Lincoln win in 19 years in the 20-lap 358 sprint car feature. In only his second time out in Evan Taylor’s Blue Ribbon Exteriors #19G, Gracey inherited the lead when polesitter and race-long leader Brie Hershey came to a stop with motor problems in turn two of lap 11.

Gracey was challenged by Troy Wagaman, Jr. on the restart, but eventually pulled away for his first-ever 358 sprint car win. Wagaman settled for second, with Jared Esh, Steve Wilbur, and Cody Fletcher rounding out the top five.

Doug Hammaker, Adrian Shaffer, Todd Rittenhouse, Jr., Phil Walter, and Brent Shearer completed the top ten.

Heats for the 26 358 Sprints were won by Hammaker, Gracey, and Rittenhouse, with Ashley Cappetta winning the consolation.

Wayne Dutterer, who had one career win in the Lincoln thundercars of yesteryear, scored the win in the 20-lap street stock feature. Dutterer, who started fifth, led the first four laps before Mike Potts came from his ninth starting spot to take the lead. Like Hershey in the 358 sprints, Potts dropped from the field while leading, handing the top spot back to Dutterer on lap 10.

JIM STRAUSBAUGH MEMORIAL RACE PLANNED AT SUSQUEHANNA SPEEDWAY

By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA ..4/4/17 Jim Strausbaugh was a longtime staple around the Central Pennsylvania sprint car world.

The noted mechanic and car owner passed away late last year and his memory will live on thanks to Susquehanna Speedway.

Susquehanna Speedway will honor Strausbaugh on Saturday, April 29 when the PASS/IMCA 305 Sprints will compete in the Jim Strausbaugh Bald Hill Shootout.

The race will also serve as an extra paying event for the Freedmont® Mortgage Lending PASS/IMCA 305 Sprint cars at the York Haven oval as drivers will go after a $1,000 to win top prize with $300 going to just start the feature event.

“The PASS/IMCA series has been a great cornerstone of Susquehanna Speedway the last couple years and we wanted to put together a big race for these guys to shoot for,” stated track General Manager Kolten Gouse.

Not only will event feature a larger purse posted for the feature, two drivers that finish inside the top ten in the feature will have a chance to go home with an extra $500 each, courtesy of Wintermyer’s Auto Salvage. The winner of the feature event will draw two random positions and those drivers will each receive the bonus money. So there is even extra incentive for drivers to put their race car inside the top ten in this big event!

Ray Heller will have two legendary cars that will be displayed for race fans to view. The cars account for many wins at Susquehanna Speedway and surrounding tracks in the area.

Joining the 305 Sprint cars on the April 29 program will be the ARDC Midgets, Street Stocks and Extreme Stocks.

SCOTT DELLINGER RETURNS TO SUSQUEHANNA VICTORY LANE Garlock Takes Mason Dixon 358’s, Diehl Scores in Street Stocks and Updegraff Wins Extreme Stocks By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA…4/1/17 Last season, Scott Dellinger only visited victory lane one time at Susquehanna Speedway. That win came late in the season in the Sportsman 100.

Dellinger isn’t waiting that long this season as the Lewisberry driver tracked down week one winner Scott Geesey during the late laps to win Saturday night’s Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman feature.

Aboard his Dellinger Auto Body, AAI Recycling, Reeser’s Soft Serve Ice Cream, G.A. Smith Towing No. 30 machine, Dellinger started 10th on the grid and worked this way to the front, coming on strong in the waning laps of the 25-lap feature. Dellinger tracked down leader Geesey and after several attempts to take the lead, Dellinger made the race winning move with 23 laps complete and drove away for the win.

Jay Fannasy led the first seven laps before giving way to Geesey, who held the point until lap 22 when Dellinger took over.

Geesey settled for the runner-up finish trailed by Fannasy, ninth starting and defending track champion Russ Mitten and Mike Enders with 20th starting Doug Dodson, Paul Miller, Kenny Edkin, Gregg Foster and Troy Hockenberry completing the top ten finishers.

Geesey, Davey Walsh and Fannasy won heats for the 28-car field while Edkin was the consolation winner.

. Three Springs’ racer Rance Garlock led flag to flag to post the win in the Bernheisel Race Cars Mason Dixon Shootout Series 358 Late Model feature.

Starting on the pole, Garlock was never seriously challenged in his No. 19 late model and defeated Brad Shank, who finished in the runner-up spot for the second consecutive week. Andrew Yoder raced home third ahead of Robbie Black and Eric Irvin.

Rounding out the top ten were Justin Ehrhart, Brian Shuey, ArtWerks Hard Charger Derrik Quade up from 23rd starting spot, Cameron Benyou and Devin Frey.

Shank, Shuey, Garlock and Black were heat winners for the strong field of of 34 cars for the Mason Dixon Shootout. Todd Snook won the consolation.

Greg Diehl became the third and final leader in the 20-lap Morgan Paving Aqua Fun Pools Street Stock feature to pick up his first win of the season.

Defending champ Mike Potts led the first 10 laps before suffering a flat tire and having to pit. That turned the lead over to Dalton Frye who held the point until lap 16 when Diehl, who started 10th took command of the event and raced to the win ahead of Frye (best career finish), Artwerks Hard Charger Eric Tripp up from 15th, Jim Jacobs and Matt Adams.

Scott Thunberg, Diehl and Kevin Sigler won heats for the 25 street stocks.

In defense of his 2016 track championship, Alex Updegraff led all 20 laps of the Superior Homes Extreme Stock feature to take the first checkered flag of the season.

He defeated Patrick McClane, Ronnie Buck, Kyle Emig and Keith Bissinger.

McClane was the lone heat race winner for the 12 car field.

Esh, Rine And Reeser Win At Port Royal As Track Records Fall

4/1/17

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Doug Esh outran Greg Hodnett to win the 25-lap sprint car feature at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night, holding Hodnett off as the pair raced in and out of traffic at lightning fast speeds.

In the 22-lap super late model main it was Danville’s Jeff Rine taking the 14th victory of his career at the track, overtaking Devin Friese for the win.

And the 18-lap 305 sprint main went to Tyler Reeser in what was a crash-filled event.

Esh’s run to victory was anything but easy from his pole starting spot as no less than three restarts took place with Hodnett glued to his tail on the extremely fast speedway surface.

The leader hit the backmarkers on the fourth lap of the main just before the first caution flag unfurled and after the restart Esh again hit traffic on the 10th tour.

And the two leaders were darting through traffic when Esh narrowly avoided disaster in the fourth corner when he came up on a suddenly slowing Eric Tomecek, all but looping the car in evasive action.

Another restart with 11 laps to go after Ryan Smith stopped on the track set up the final run to the checkers with Hodnett leaving absolutely no breathing room for Esh.

The pair again entered lapped traffic with five laps to go with Esh holding just a few tenths of a second advantage over Hodnett.

At no time during the race was Esh’s advantage more than .7 seconds over Hodnett and even those few tenths evaporated as the pair shot off of the fourth corner for the checkers when Esh swung wide in traffic allowing Hodnett to close to within .101 seconds as the pair crossed the finish line.

The win was the eighth of Esh’s career at the track.

Rick Lafferty rode home third followed by Aaron Ott and Steve Buckwalter.

Sixth through 10th went to Ryan Taylor, Cole Duncan, Brock Zearfoss, Logan Wagner and Dylan Cisney.

Heats went to Esh, Smith and Hodnett.

Esh set a new one-lap track record in the first heat race with a mark of 15.011 seconds while Hodnett set a new eight-lap track record in his heat with a time of 2:02.587.

Devin Friese took the lead at the start of the super late model main over Tim Wilson while eventual winner Rine started fifth in the field.

The pace was slowed for the first time with three laps away finding Rick Singleton now up to second with Wilson and Rine following.

Singleton briefly challenged for the lead on the restart but when he brushed across Friese’s rear bumper, destroying his momentum, Rine motored by on the inside for second on the sixth tour.

Friese held Rine at bay for several laps from that point on as Rine consistently took jabs for the top spot to Friese’s inside.

But then in his first and only attempt at an outside pass for the lead, Rine easily zoomed into control in the third turn to check out on the rest of the field.

He took the win by 3.329 seconds over Friese followed by Singleton, Darryl Hills and Coleby Frye.

Sixth through 10th went to Wilson, Justin Kann, Mike Lupfer, Steve Campbell and Andy Haus.

Heats went to Singleton, Wilson and Friese with Singleton setting a new one-lap track record in his qualifier with a lap of 17.728 seconds.

The crash-laden 305 sprint main saw Tyler Reeser wire the field after starting the race in fourth.

Cale Reigle took second spot on the third lap but failed to snare the lead despite several attempts at gaining the top spot.

Red flag stoppages marred the event on the second, fifth and 10th lap.

Reeser took the win by 3.229 seconds over Reigle, Mark Watkins, Drew Ritchey and Colby Dice.

Sixth through 10th went to Zach Newlin, Reed Thompson, Kassidy Kreitz, Andrew Hake and Fred Arnold with only those 10 cars finishing the event.

Heats went to Jeff Miller, Nathan Gramley and Thompson.

Reeser set a new one-lap track record in the feature with a lap of 17.583 seconds, overtaking a new mark set by Miller in the first heat race.

Hammaker catches Denmyer to claim 7th career Lincoln 358 sprint victory; Justin Cullum scores first in All-American Outlaws

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 4/1/2017 – When Brian Montieth became the third leader of the race on lap 21 Saturday, everyone figured that would be game over in the 25-lap 410 sprint car feature at Lincoln Speedway.

But Chase Dietz didn’t get the memo. Dietz, who started seventh two rows behind third-starting Montieth, caught Robbie Kendall for second a lap later, and drove around Montieth for the lead several times in mid-lap, but couldn’t make it stick at the line each time by. On the final lap coming off turn four, Dietz went to the top and pulled alongside the Jerry Parrish-owned #21, but couldn’t make the pass, crossing a foot (.029 seconds) beside him at the checkered.

“He was better than me on the bottom, and that was my only shot,” said Montieth in victory lane, “If he held the bottom there in three and four when I got under him, HE would be sitting here now. It was fun!”

“I tried not to dirty him too bad there in three and four and made it as wide as I could,” continued Montieth, “He had to run up there in that little bit of dirtiness, and it was just a drag race. I knew it was gonna be close.”

Handicapping placed Tim Glatfelter on the pole for the start and he led the first eight laps. Second-starting Kendall chased him throughout the early stages and got by into the lead on lap nine. Montieth ran third the whole way until Cory Haas spun on lap 17. Over the next four laps, Montieth began to kick in, putting pressure on Glatfelter for second and then after leader Kendall.

“Scott was telling me to get up on the wheel there,” said Montieth, “With the amount of rain we had yesterday, I expected this track to be choppier than what it is,” said Montieth, “It’s actually pretty racey. The older I get…it’s getting more tough.”

Third through fifth were Kendall, 11th-starting Lucas Wolfe, and Glatfelter. Sixth through tenth were Alan Krimes, Danny Dietrich, Jim Siegel, Billy Dietrich, and 18th-starting Bill Balog.

Heats for the 25 410 Sprints were won by Montieth, Krimes, and Siegel, with Kyle Reinhardt winning the consolation.

Carlisle’s Doug Hammaker followed up his second-place finish from opening night with a win in the 20-lap 358 sprint car feature. That moved him one win past his dad Dale on the all-time Lincoln win list.

Kyle Denmyer, who started fourth, drove around everyone (including polesitter Hammaker) on the opening lap and led the first three circuits. Hammaker regrouped and claimed the lead on lap four, leading the rest of the way for the 1.91-second victory over Denmyer, with Chandler Leiby, opening night winner Kevin Nouse, and Cody Fletcher completing the top five.

Heats for the 30 358 Sprints were won by David Holbrook, Denmyer, and Jared Esh, with Shane Smith winning the consolation.

Justin Cullum scored his first career Lincoln win in the 20-lap All-American Outlaw season opener.

Travis McClelland started on the pole and led the first ten laps before Cullum took over and led the rest of the way.

McClelland settled for second, with Jim Minter, Tim Fake, and Jeff McCauley rounding out the top five.

Heats for the 13 All American Outlaws were won by McClelland and Cullum.

Next Saturday, April 8th, Lincoln Speedway continues 6 PM starts and with another 3-division racing program as the 410 Sprints and 358 Sprints are joined by the Street Stocks. Gates open at 4 PM, with hot laps getting underway at 5:30 PM.

SCOTT GEESEY OPENS 2017 SEASON WITH IMPRESSIVE SUPER SPORTSMAN WIN Randy Christine, Jr., Eddie Richards and Scott Houdeshell Share Opening Night Laurels By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA…3/25/17 Scott Geesey made a strong statement in Saturday night’s season opener at Susquehanna Speedway.

After finishing in a tie with Russ Mitten for the 2016 track championship (Mitten was champ based on wins), Geesey drove through the field from his 15th starting spot to secure the opening night win in the 25-lap Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman feature.

Aboard his Kreitzer Excavating, Crredit Connection Auto Sales, Silver Lake Inn, Rumbergers Automotive Service Center No. 41, the Wellsville driver worked his way past leader Paul Miller on the 19th lap and drove off for the feature win.

Miller led first three laps of the feature before giving way to defending track champ Mitten, who led until lap 11 when Miller regained the top spot.

Miller settled for the runner-up finish with Gregg Foster taking third, 19th starting and B-Main winner Scott Dellinger coming through for an impressive fourth with 12th starter Davey Walsh rounding out the top five.

Rich Eichelberger was sixth trailed by Doug Dodson, Mike Enders, Tony Jackson and Kenny Edkin.

Eichelberger, Frankie Herr and Devin Beidel were heat race winners for the 29 Super Sportsman. Dellinger was the B-Main winner.

Herr was a flip victim late in the feature while Beidel saw his race car go up in flames early in the feature. Neither driver was injured.

Randy Christine, Jr. took a big step in defending his 2016 track championship by wiring the field in the 25-lap Bernheisel Race Cars 358 Late Model feature.

By virtue of drawing the pole for the feature, the Manchester driver was never seriously challenged in scoring the opening night win in his No. 74 machine.

Brad Shank ran second the entire distance while Sean Merkel finished third over ninth starter Brian Shuey and Justin Ehrhart.

Chase Billet came home sixth over 18th starter Randy Stroudt, 23rd starter and ArtWerks Hard Charger Cam Zeigler, Charles Potts and Matt Murphy.

Harlon Leppo, Chaney and Stough were Legend heat winners. There were 24 cars pitside.

The 20-lap Morgan Paving./Aqua Fun Pools Street Stock feature had all kinds of action at the front as defending champion Mike Potts led the first 11 laps before pitting with a flat tire.

This turned the lead to Kevin Sigler but Sigler and two more frontrunners were involved in crashes before a lap could be complete.

Eddie Richards, who started eighth assumed command of the feature and would score the win ahead of Potts, who drove back through the field.

Jim Palm started 23rd and finished third earning the ArtWerks Hard Charger ahead of Ryan Smith and Matt Adams with Chad Stine, Doug Barber, Craig Morgan, Daren Rice and David Dietz completing the top ten finishers.

Lynton Jeffrey Invades For Port Royal Sprint Opener Victory

Jason Covert Stuns For Last Lap Late Model Upset, Andrew Yoder Wins Mason Dixon Shootout

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

3/25/17

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Lynton Jeffrey of Prairie City, Iowa, held off Dale Blaney to win Saturday’s 2017 season opener for sprint cars at Port Royal Speedway.

Jeffrey took home $3,500 for the victory after taking the lead early from Rick Lafferty.

In the 35-lap blastoff for super late models, Jason Covert of York pulled off a last lap, last corner stunner to take the $3,000 victory.

And Andrew Yoder of Middleburg scored the $1,000 Mason Dixon Shootout Series event for limited late models to round out the program.

Lafferty and Jeffrey started on the front row of the 410 sprint car main with Lafferty leading the first lap and Jeffrey in his shadow.

Jeffrey pulled the trigger on the second tour to grab command of the field before entering the backmarkers on the ninth lap.

Lafferty chased him into traffic, trying to keep pace before third starter Dale Blaney got around for second on the 17th tour.

Blaney then began slowly reeling in leader Jeffrey and with three to go he took his shot for the win.

He stuffed the Zemco No. 1 sprinter deep into the first corner and briefly took the lead before Jeffrey used the cushion to slingshot back around for the lead as the pair shot onto the backstretch.

And that took the wind out of Blaney’s sails as Jeffrey pulled out to a 1.025 second advantage at the finish to become the 188th different winner of a sprint car main in Port Royal history.

Greg Hodnett got by Lafferty for third with two laps to go, forcing Lafferty to finish fourth with Mike Wagner ending up fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Doug Esh, Brock Zearfoss, Dylan Cisney, Mark Smith and TJ Stutts.

Heats went to Zearfoss and Stutts.

Polesitter Jason Covert took the lead at the start of the super late model main trailed by fourth starter Dylan Yoder on the first lap after Yoder made a two-car pass to get the spot.

Covert held sway with Yoder trying time after time to get into a position that could net him control but it took a restart on the 13th lap to get him the point.

He used the restart to bolt around Covert and take control before getting away with the lead.

However his mount began puffing smoke of some sort as he held the lead and that smoke turned terminal with nine laps to go when it forced him to roll to a stop on the track, wiping out a 2.119 second lead and handing over the point to third starter Kenny Moreland.

Moreland had wrestled second from Gary Stuhler on the 23rd lap with Covert having fallen back to fourth.

Covert got around Stuhler for second as he began to rebound with eight laps to go but as the race wore on to the finish it seemed that Covert was just too far away to make a serious bid for the win.

With two laps to go it still looked that way but just after taking the white flag Covert found enough muscle to pull alongside Moreland as the pair hit the first corner however Moreland had enough momentum to roll back into weak control in the second corner.

But Covert wasn’t done yet and he used the last two corners to race to Moreland’s inside again and the pair exited the fourth corner in a furious race to the finish with Covert edging ahead to the line, taking the win by an amazing .182 seconds.

Moreleand was second followed by Stuhler, Mike Lupfer and Gregg Satterlee.

Sixth through 10th went to Coleby Frye, Rick Singleton, Nick Dickson, Jeff Rine and Trent Brenneman.

Heats for the 32 late models went to Covert, Stuhler, Moreland in a last to first performance, and Yoder. Tim Wilson scored the consolation race.

Tim Krape led the first 10 laps of the 20-lap limited late model main before Andrew Yoder took over after starting third in the field.

Yoder was never challenged for the win after taking control as he ran to a 1.931 second win.

DIETRICH MAKES IT TWO-FOR-TWO IN LINCOLN 410 SPRINTS;

Nouse takes season opener for “358” sprints

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 3/25/2017 – Danny Dietrich held off Jim Siegel and Lucas Wolfe to score his second win in two Lincoln races in Saturday’s 25-lap “410” sprint car feature.

It was a classic final turn slidefest that saw Siegel reclaim the lead momentarily exiting turn four as his slid in front of Dietrich. But “Double D” drove to the bottom exiting turn four and outraced Siegel to the checkered flag.

“I could hear him. I kinda’ saw him I think off of two there on that last lap, and I didn’t think I could go to the bottom there in turns three and four, so I just went to the top. I figured that he would slide me and I needed to get down in the moisture with him going the wrong way. I got to the moisture off of four just in time,” said Dietrich upon exiting his Gary Kauffman-owned Weikert’s Livestock/Sandoe’s Fruit Market #48 in victory lane, “I don’t want to rough nobody up. I think we raced really hard and really clean. With lapped cars, there just wasn’t anywhere to go, so you make the most of what you can with your race car and that’s all you can do.”

Siegel grabbed the lead from invading polesitter Coleman Gulick of Binghamton, New York at the outset and led the first 11 laps until a caution came out for Shane Hoff, who came to stop in turn four while running fourth.

On the subsequent restart, fifth-starting Dietrich passed Gulick for second on the back stretch and tracked down Siegel over the next ten laps, passed the Mason-Dixon Vault Company #59 in lapped traffic of lap 22. Siegel never went away, and took a last-turn shot for the win, coming up just short.

“I can’t thank this crew enough,” said Dietrich, “We had a bad night last night, and we just want to win all year long. It’s as simple as that. I’ll do whatever it takes to win.”

Quietly, Lucas Wolfe entered the picture with just a few laps to go, and crossed a close third. Crossing fourth and fifth were Gulick and the winner’s brother Billy. Sixth through tenth were defending track champ Alan Krimes, Kyle Moody, 18th-starting Cory Haas, 17th-starting Chase Dietz, and Brian Montieth, who sustained front wing damage in a early-race incident involving invader Billy Bulog.

Heats for the 34 410 Sprints were won by Danny Dietrich, Siegel, Wolfe, and Freddie Rahmer, with Chad Trout winning the consolation.

Mechanicsburg’s Kevin Nouse scored the win in the season opener for “358” sprint cars. He started eighth and took the lead from Doug Hammaker in lapped traffic on lap 13 of 20. He held on for the 1.06-second win, the eighth of his career in the Pigeon Hills.

Hammaker, who took the lead from polesitter Todd Rittenhouse, Jr. on lap seven, led the next six laps before Nouse took the lead for good.

Hammaker settled for second, with Rittenhouse third, Adrian Shaffer fourth, and defending champ Chandler Leiby fifth.

Sixth through tenth were Kyle Denmyer, Matt Findley, Todd Gracey, Ashley Cappetta, and Wyatt Hinkle.

Heats for the 25 358 Sprints were won by Hammaker, Brent Shearer, and Phil Walter.

Next Saturdy, April 1st, Lincoln Speedway moves to 6 PM starts and will run off its’ first 3-division racing program of 2017 with the 410 Sprint and 358 Sprints being joined by the All-American Outlaws. Gates open at 4 PM, with hot laps getting underway at 5:30 PM.

Hodnett And Satterlee Open Williams Grove Season With Wins

3/24/17

Mechanicsburg – Greg Hodnett of Thomasville opened up the 2017 Williams Grove Speedway sprint car season on Friday night with a flag to flag victory worth $3,800 over Brian Montieth.

Elsewhere, Gregg Satterlee of Rochester Mills socred the victory in the 25-lap super late model main to record his second career victory at the oval one year after claiming a late model main at the track on the same weekend.

Hodnett drew the second starting spot to begin the 25-lap 410 sprint car feature and outgunned Steve Buckwalter from the pole when the race began.

The first caution flag of the race unfuled with six laps away finding fifth starter Brian Montieth up to third.

Hodnett pulled away on the restart by using the top groove after racing early around the inside lane.

However Hodnett did see his lead shrink with 10 laps to go as Montieth was able to run him down.

Montieth was beginning to take some stabs for the lead on the low side on the 17th tour when another caution flag slowed the pace, this time for a stopped Buckwalter.

The new green allowed Hodnett to pull away once again with Montieth left to try and keep pace.

But while able to keep Hodnett in sight, Montieth was never again able to get close enough to make a bid for the win.

Hodnett instead cruised uncontested to the 67th win of his career at the track with Montieth finishing second followed by Brock Zearfoss, Mark Smith and 15th starter Doug Esh.

Sixth through 10th went to Freddie Rahmer, who earned hard charger laurels; TJ Stutts, Dale Blaney, Lucas Wolfe and Brandon Rahmer.

Heats went to Eric Tomecek, Hodnett and Blaney.

Veteran Gary Stuhler jumped from the pole into the lead at the start of the super late model main over Matt Cosner who pounced from fifth to second.

Cosner was racing with Stuhler on the sixth tour when the second caution flag of the race appeared with Satterlee up to third.

Satterlee blasted by Cosner when action resumed and began his pursuit of the leader.

For several laps prior to a final caution flag with 12 laps to go, Satterlee tried his best to get by Stuhler, using both sides of the track to no avail as Stuhler worked the surface to perfection to hold him back.

But that final restart with 12 to go proved to be his undoing as a slow pace back to the restart by Stuhler allowed Satterlee to power underneath as the pair motored into the first corner.

Satterlee blasted low across the track and bolted into control rather handily and after doing so he began stretching out an advantage that he would hold to the final corner when a wide swing around the cushion allowed Stuhler to close back in just before the checkers.

Satterlee took the $2,000 payday ahead of Stuhler, Cosner, Coleby Frye and Tyler Horst.

Sixth through 10th went to Trent Brenneman, Matt Sponaugle, Bryan Bernheisel, Andy Haus and Jeff Rine.

Heats went to Justin Kann and Satterlee.

‘DOUBLE-D’ DANNY DIETRICH ENTERS USAC NON-WING EASTERN STORM, SERIES OPENS AT GRANDVIEW ON TUESDAY, JUNE 13

BECHTELSVILLE, PA (MARCH 19, 2017) – 410 Sprint Car ace, Danny Dietrich has thrown his name into the hat of local competitors that will ‘Chase the Storm’ when the USAC National Wingless Sprint Car Championship Eastern Storm rolls into town for a week of ultra-exciting racing action, beginning on Tuesday, June 13 at Grandview Speedway.

Dietrich will strap into the Tom Buch-owned/APEX/DKW Transport No. 13 machine for action at Grandview Speedway (June 13), Lincoln Speedway (June 14), Williams Grove Speedway (June 15), and Port Royal Speedway (June 17) before the team heads west to compete with the All-Star Circuit of Champions at Waynesfield Raceway (June 18).

“Tom has given me a great opportunity to run these wingless races and I’m looking forward to going out and trying something different,” Dietrich explained. “It’s going to be tough because we’re out of our element, but I think I can adapt and I believe we have a chance of winning at any of these tracks.”

‘Double-D’ certainly isn’t a stranger to victory lane in Central Pennsylvania, having claimed winged 410 victories at Lincoln, Williams Grove, and Port Royal Speedway in the 2016 season – including the $25,000 Williams Grove National Open victory against the World of Outlaws. Dietrich first found victory lane at the Berks County Grandview Speedway in the inaugural Thunder Cup event in 2015.

But all bets are off with this being Dietrich’s first foray into wingless Sprint Car racing.

“With a wing on we’re used to running really hard on entry,” the 28-year-old racer explained. “I think there’s going to be a learning curve, but this is going to make me a more versatile racer.”

“Danny Dietrich is one of the sport’s most popular racers on and off the race track,” Bob Miller co-promoter of the USAC events at Grandview Speedway and Lincoln Speedway stated. “Having someone of his caliber compete against the USAC drivers adds another layer to the excitement of the Eastern Storm.”

The leanest and meanest racers from USAC’s AMSOIL National Sprint Car Series – the nation’s largest group of non-wing open-wheel racers – make their annual stop on the east coast for a five-race series touring through Central Pennsylvania.

The 11th year of the ‘Eastern Storm’ kicks off on Tuesday, June 13 at Grandview Speedway; followed by Lincoln Speedway on Wednesday, June 14; Williams Grove Speedway on Thursday, June 15; Port Royal Speedway on Saturday, June 17; and rounding out the series on Sunday, June 18 at Susquehanna Speedway.

Williams Grove Opens Season Friday With 410 Sprints & Super Late Models

3/19/17

Mechanicsburg – Williams Grove Speedway will try for a third time to get the 2017 racing seaon off of the ground when it hosts the season opener this Friday night, March 24 at 7:30 pm, featuring the Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint cars and the super late models.

The rescheduled season opener will feature the Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprints in a 25-lap feature paying $3,800 to win.

The super late models will race for a $2,000 to win payday while the winner also earns a guaranteed starting spot in the upcoming June Late Model Speedweek event at Williams Grove Speedway.

A banner field of late models should be expected considering the event will be the first of the year in the region for the full-body stock cars.

Adult general admission for the prestigious season opener is set at just $16 with youth ages 13 – 20 admitted for just $10. Ages 12 and under are always admitted for FREE at Williams Grove Speedway.

The Williams Grove portion of opening day 50/50 ticket sales will be donated to the Wounded Warrior Project.

The sprint car drivers will be competing to win the Williams Grove opening day Hard Charger Award, presented by PAPosseRacing.com.

The hard charger of the race will earn $300 for his efforts.

Last season it was Rick Lafferty of Pennington, NJ., scoring the opening day sprint car feature at Williams Grove Speedway on a Friday night after being pressured for the lead by Freddie Rahmer and having been passed for the win by Greg Hodnett.

Since 1939 when Tommy Hinnershitz won the inaugural race at the famed facility, so many highly recognized names and even some not so much have scored the prestigious first Williams Grove race of the year.

Well-knowns or on their way up the ladder at the time of their victories were the likes of Jan Opperman, AJ Foyt, Ted Horn and Hinnershitz.

Kasey Kahne, destined for bigger and better things in todays NASCAR arena, took the opener back in 2000.

But perhaps lesser-known at the time or even unique names like Kevin Collins, Brian Paulus, Marlett Naill and Gig Stephens have also taken that famous first checkered flag of the year at Williams Grove.

Williams Grove Speedway will close out the month of March on Friday, March 31 with the first Yellow Breeches 500 event for the 410 sprints and the first event of the season for the HJ Towing and Recovery 358 sprints.

The Yellow Breeches 500 is a series of events for 410 sprints on the 2017 schedule that pays $500 just to start the 25-lap feature.

Williams Grove Plans New Season Opener Friday, March 17

Lidlifter now offers 410 sprints and super late models

3/12/17

Mechanicsburg – After losing the March 12 season opener to weather, Williams Grove Speedway is slated to open the 2017 racing season coming up Friday, March 17 at 7:30 pm.

Presented by Dieffenbach’s Potato Chips of Lebanon, the rescheduled season opener will feature the Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprints in a 25-lap feature paying $3,600 to win.

The super late models will race for a $2,000 to win payday.

Adult general admission for the prestigious season opener is set at just $16 with youth ages 13 – 20 admitted for just $10. Ages 12 and under are always admitted for FREE at Williams Grove Speedway.

The Williams Grove portion of opening day 50/50 ticket sales will be donated to the Wounded Warrior Project.

The sprint car drivers will be competing to win the Williams Grove opening day Hard Charger Award, presented by PAPosseRacing.com.

The hard charger of the race will earn $300 for his efforts.

Last season it was Rick Lafferty of Pennington, NJ., scoring the opening day sprint car feature at Williams Grove Speedway on a Friday night after being pressured for the lead by Freddie Rahmer and having been passed for the win by Greg Hodnett.

Since 1939 when Tommy Hinnershitz won the inaugural race at the famed facility, so many highly recognized names and even some not so much have scored the prestigious first Williams Grove race of the year.

Well-knowns or on their way up the ladder at the time of their victories were the likes of Jan Opperman, AJ Foyt, Ted Horn and Hinnershitz.

Kasey Kahne, destined for bigger and better things in todays NASCAR arena, took the opener back in 2000.

But perhaps lesser-known at the time or even unique names like Kevin Collins, Brian Paulus, Marlett Naill and Gig Stephens have also taken that famous first checkered flag of the year at Williams Grove.

Williams Grove Speedway will return to action on March 24 at 7:30 pm with another 410 sprint and super late model doubleheader.

The super late model winner on March 24 will earn $2,000 for the win but he will actually earn more than that.

The March 24 event will serve as a Late Model Speedweek qualifer for the stock cars at Williams Grove, meaning the winner on March 24 is guaranteed a starting position in the Williams Grove Late Model Speedweek event coming up at the track on June 9.

The sprints will be racing for $3,500 to win and the late models will be racing for $2,000 to win.

Hodnett would go on to post a division high total of seven wins on the season at Port Royal while Haus took the track title and a pair of wins, coming back to back in the first two shows of the year.

Port Royal Speedway returns to action on March 25 with another two-division card of 410 sprints and super late models at 5 pm.

FREEZING TEMPS FORCE LINCOLN SPEEDWAY CANCELATION;

410 Sprints & Open Practice on tap March 11th

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 3/5/2017 – Overnight freezing temperatures led to a frozen racing surface. And with a forecast of freezing temperatures to linger through the morning into the afternoon, Lincoln Speedway promoters regretfully were forced to cancel this weekends’ second racing program of the 2017.

Last weekend Danny Dietrich survived a marathon day to pick-up the 2017 season-opening Ice Breaker 30. It was a day that initially greeted fans with spring-like conditions until violent thunderstorms delayed the program. After several hours and drastically lower temperatures, Fred Putney and his track prep team got the racing surface back to race-ready conditions allowing the hearty fans in attendance to witness the Abbottstown ovals’ 2017 season-opener.

This weekend overnight temperatures in the teens froze the 3/8th-mile high-banked ovals’ racing surface. Even after waiting an additional day, it was apparent there would be no above freezing temperatures to thaw the racing surface, forcing the promoters to cancel this weekend’s 2nd racing program of 2017.

Next Saturday, March 11th, Lincoln Speedway will try again with another single-division 410 sprint car show. Additionally, there will be an open practice session following the scheduled racing program. Once again, gates open at noon, with qualifying to begin at 2:00 PM.

DANNY DIETRICH WAITS OUT STORM DELAY, NURSES MOTOR TO CLAIM “ICEBREAKER 30” SEASON OPENER

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 2/25/2017 – Fans saw it all at Lincoln Speedway Saturday.

They were greeted with cloudy skies and temperatures exceeding 70 degrees at the outset, cleared the stands when a tornado warning was issued at 2:20 p.m., waited out a four-hour, forty-minute rain and hail storm delay, returned to the stands to a 20-degree temperature drop, and then withstood heavy winds to see Danny Dietrich score his 32nd career win and claim the $4,000 top prize in Saturday “Icebreaker 30” season opener for 410 sprint cars.

A redraw placed Dietrich sixth for the start. A second lap yellow for eighth-starting Bradley Howard, who came to a stop in turn three was the only caution of the event. At the time, Jim Siegel dropped into the pits and did not return.

Dietrich was running fifth when polesitter and race-long leader Tim Glatfelter hit lapped traffic on lap six.

Five laps later, fifth-starting Brian Montieth took the lead from Glatfelter on the backstretch, only to slow suddenly three laps later with mechanical issues, turning the lead back over to Glatfelter. Dietrich inherited fourth when Montieth dropped from the field, behind Glatfelter, front row starter Campbell, and Kyle Moody.

Dietrich caught Moody for third on lap 17 and passed both Campbell for second and Glatfelter on the back stretch of lap 20. From there, he checked out on the field until developing motor problems of his own with just a few laps to go. He was able to nurse it home and cross 297 seconds ahead of runner-up Moody at the finish.

I think it was a valve spring that went,” said Dietrich upon exiting the Gary Kauffman-owned Weikert’s Livestock/Sandoe’s Fruit Market #48 in victory lane, “But as Bob Weikert would have said, we have more back in the shop.”

“I told these guys all week we were gonna race. I expected to be done by 3:00, but we missed that by about a half-hour, said Dietrich tongue in cheek, “It was just another day.”

Crossing third through fifth behind Dietrich and Moody were Cory Haas in new Trone Outdoor Advertising #39 ride, 11th-starting Gerard McIntyre, Jr., and Freddie Rahmer. Sixth through tenth were Campbell, 26th-starting and hard-charger Chase Dietz, Chad Trout, Shane Hoff, and 16th-starting Billy Dietrich.

All told, there were four lead changes among three drivers over the 30 laps.

Heats for the 27 410 Sprints were won by McIntyre, Moody, and Trout.

The temperature dropped from 71 degrees during warm-ups to 46 degrees when the “Icebreaker” ended at 7:48 p.m.

Next Saturday, March 4th, Lincoln Speedway returns with another single-division 410 sprint car show. Gates open at noon, with qualifying to begin at 2:00 p.m.

Port Royal Practices March 4 & 9, Season Opener Is March 11

Andy Haus To Open Late Model Title Defense Aboard New Zerby Ride

2/25/17

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Port Royal Speedway is prepped and ready to begin the 2017 racing season with a pair of upcoming practice sessions on March 4 and 9 before the Season Opener is staged on Saturday, March 11 at 5 pm.

Practice on March 4 runs from 1 – 4 pm while the March 9 session takes place from 6 – 9 pm. Both practices are open to any division on the 2017 schedule of events.

And then the gates will swing open on March 11 for the annual lidlifter with the Weikert’s Livestock 410 sprints and River Valley Builders super late models in the spotlight.

However upon seeing the first green lights of the season, fans will also see defending super late model track champion Andy Haus aboard a new ride.

Set to take to the track in the opener in defense of his track title is 31-year old Haus of Hamburg.

And Haus has reason to be excited about his new season as he recently moved into the seat of a new ride for the 2017 Port Royal campaign.

Haus will be piloting for Shamokin-area owner Vern Zerby, who himself spent 2016 getting his feet wet behind the wheel after never racing in circles before.

Zerby is however an accomplished titlist in tractor pulling in the east, having taken several titles with the Interstate pulling circuit in recent years.

“There was discussion last year about me hot lapping the car but I never did,” said Haus recently about getting linked up with Zerby.

“About two months ago Vern decided to scale back his driving and reached out.”

As it turns out, Zerby’s cars were exact twins to the “house” chassis’ that Haus already had in his own shop, making the transition into his new Saturday night ride somewhat easier to handle.

“Overall, the equipment is excellent,” Haus says.

Haus will campaign Zerby’s No. 29Z on Saturday’s at Port Royal while running his own familiar No. 76 at Bedford Speedway on Friday nights while keeping his No. 76 as a Saturday backup car as well.

Zerby will also continue to field a car at Port Royal for 2016 Rookie Of The Year Dave Brouse Jr. of Beavertown.

Brouse and Zerby joined up for the driver and team’s first year on the track in 2016 with Brouse showing steady improvement as the season wore on.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

LINCOLN SPEEDWAY

Abbottstown, PA

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The regular Lawrence Chevrolet Williams Grove 410 sprints cars, aside from competing in the season-long point title chase, will also be taking part in two other series of races within the overall title chase.

The Hoosier Diamond Series will again be staged with a champion declared based on performances in select increased purse races during the year while the Yellow Breeches 500 races take place as well, dotting the schedule during the season from March through August.

The Yellow Breeches 500 races will be handicapped races paying a healthy increase of $500 to start each feature.

The Diamond Series will be highlighted by the September 1 Van May/Kramer Williamson Tribute Race for the 410 sprints and URC Sprints.

By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA 12/7/16

Susquehanna Speedway will once again be part of the two big weeks of Amsoil USAC Racing in Central Pennsylvania in 2017.

The AMSOIL National USAC Sprint Cars will bring the Eastern Storm to Susquehanna Speedway on Sunday, June 11.

The second big USAC date will be the AMSOIL National Midget Series where Susquehanna’s Sunday August 13 date will kick off the annual Midget Week at area speedways.

“We are thrilled to have the USAC Sprint cars and USAC Midgets back at Susquehanna Speedway in 2017,” said General Manager Kolten Gouse. “We had a great show this past year and we’re looking forward to having this traveling series come back against the locals.”

Chris Windom won the Sprint Car event in 2016 while the Midget race was lost to the weather.

The Extreme Stocks will join USAC on both shows while the 600cc Micro Sprints will also be a part of the August 13 Midget program.

Both events will see green flag action at 7pm with pit gates opening at 4pm and grandstands at 5pm. Admission for both events will be $20 for Adults; $15 for Students and Seniors with Kids 12 and Under Free.
