Chris Windom Makes It Back-To-Back USAC Eastern Storm Wins At Port Royal
Greg Hodnett Wires Field For Companion Victory In 410s

6/16/18

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Chris Windom of Canton, Illinois, scored the USAC Eastern Storm victory on Saturday night at Port Royal Speedway for the second year in a row, taking the $6,000 victory after exchanging the lead four times with Brady Bacon.

In the regular 25-lap 410 sprint car main, Greg Hodnett wired the field for the $4,000 payday in what was a crash-marred event.

The 30-lap USAC feature saw Windom and Bacon share the front row for the start with Bacon taking the lead over Windom during the early going before the red flag unfurled on just the third lap for a vicious front stretch crash by Trevor Kobylarz.

Kobylarz made contact with the outside wall and flipped in front of the grandstand but escaped injury.

Four more laps were recorded before a yellow flag bunched the field with Bacon still in control over Windom but it wasn’t until lap 12 that the front duo began battling fiercely for control.

Windom blasted under Bacon in the first turn on the 12th lap to slide up and snag the lead but just that quick Bacon dropped off of the cushion and rallied to Windom’s inside racing down the backstretch to regain control by bolting inside in the third turn and driving up to get the lead back.

The next time into turn one, Windom again pulled the same move for control and likewise Bacon again did the same thing as he had done the lap prior and he again dropped off of the cushion, drove a lane lower under Windom on the backstretch and blasted back into control entering the third turn.

After that Bacon stayed just far enough out of Windom’s reach to begin looking like he had a shot at the win only to suddenly slow with 13 laps to go, relinquishing control to Windom just as Jarrett Andretti hit the wall in the second turn.

Both Andretti and Bacon made repairs and tagged to the rear of the field for the restart.

Sixth starter Kevin Thomas Jr., the night’s fast timer in qualifications, tussled with Windom on the restart but gradually the smooth running Windom started to get away on the cushion.

Windom rode the cushion to the victory in the end by .698 seconds over Thomas with Tyler Courtney ending up third.

Robert Ballou and Dave Darland completed the top five.

Sixth through 10th went to Chase Stockon, Justin Grant, Chad Boespflug, Tim Buckwalter and CJ Leary.

Heats went to Zach Daum, Tony DiMattia and Courtney.

Kevin Thomas Jr. of Cullman, Alabama, set a new one-lap track record for wingless sprint cars in time trials with a lap of 18.583 seconds.

Greg Hodnett and AJ Flick started on the front row of the regular 410 sprint car main and Hodnett blasted into control over Flick when the green unfurled.

Hodnett hit traffic with Flick chasing him on the eighth tour and had built up a 3.352 second advantage by lap 10 when Kody Lehman lost power on his machine and rolled to a stop.

Flick got underneath Hodnett on the restart and for just a moment held the lead but Hodnett rode his momentum to regain control while Brock Zearfoss capitalized on on Flick’s move to snare second.

And then the first red flag of the race appeared with 10 laps to go when Trenton Sheaffer slammed into the first turn wall and recoiled back down onto the track.

Sheaffer escaped injury and Flick changed a tire under the red.

When action restarted, the machines of Zearfoss, Mike Wagner and Rick Lafferty dueled for second for several laps before Lafferty finally gained the position over Wagner with six laps to go.

Wagner and Zearfoss then continued to battle for third with contact between the pair ending up with Wagner spinning with two laps to go.

The restart saw a red flag period return when TJ Stutts blasted inside of Steve Buckwalter in the third turn only to make contact while trying to make the pass and flipping wildly into the fourth corner.

A lengthy red flag period followed while Stutts was extricated from the car before being transported to an area hospital to be checked out.

Hodnett drove away on the restart to record his second win of the year at the oval and the 52nd of his career in the facility.

Finishing second was Lafferty, .994 seconds behind, followed by 13th starter Dylan Cisney, Zearfoss and Ryan Taylor.

Sixth through 10th went to Logan Wagner, Jared Esh, Joey Hershey, Bradley Howard and Tyler Reaser.

Heats went to Flick and Hodnett.

MONTIETH WIRES THE FIELD IN PICKING UP HIS THIRD WIN OF THE YEAR IN WELDON STERNER MEMORIAL;

Chase Dietz Scores impressive win in June 2nd Make-up 358 Sprint feature

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 6/16/2018 – Brian Montieth has a knack for winning at the right time, especially at Lincoln Speedway.

Montieth, sporting the Sterner Cement Car Colors and number in honor of the race’s namesake, grabbed the lead from his outside frontrow starting position at the drop of the green and masterfully drove through lapped traffic most of the way to register his 58th career win in the $6,900-to-win 33-lap 15th Annual Weldon Sterner Memorial.

Only two stoppages of action during the course of the 33-lap affair kept the lead cars in heavy lapped traffic most of the way. Montieth was chased the entire distance by polesitter Cory Haas who got a chance with two laps to go. A spin by Chad Trout in turn 2 closed the field bumper-to-bumper, erasing the nearly 2-second advantage by the 6-time track champ.

Haas, Alan Krimes, and Lucas Wolfe tried to mount one last charge as the green flag waved with two laps to go.

But Montieth was, well, Montieth.

The Phoenixville racer got a good start and drove away over the final 2 laps to register a 1.91-second victory over Haas.

Earlier in the race, the first stoppage of the event occurred when a hard-charging Freddie Rahmer was trying to advance from third to second when he flipped in turns one and two, collecting a challenging Robbie Kendall who also flipped.

Heats for the sprinters were won by Robbie Kendall, Cory Haas, and Freddie Rahmer, with Chad Trout winning the consolation.

Fast time in time trials over the 27-car field was set by Anthony Macri with a one-lap time of 13.213-seconds (102.172 MPH).

Heat winners on the original June 2nd show for the 358 sprinters were won by Troy Wagaman, Jr., Tyler Ross, and Brie Hershey.

Heats for the 25 Mid-Atlantic Modifieds were won by Justin Cullum, Brad Kling, and Rick Hulson, with ?? winning the consolation.

Next Saturday night, June 23rd, it will be the FALLEN FIREFIGHTERS NIGHT IN MEMORY OF BRANDON LITTLE along with KIDS NIGHT with the 410 Sprints ($5,000 to win), 358 Sprints, and 358 Late Models in action.

CHRIS WINDOM WINS USAC EASTERN STORM STOP AT WILLIAMS GROVE AND LUCAS WOLFE WINS SPRINT CAR FEATURE

MECHANICSBURG, PA – Chris Windom took the lead from Brady Bacon with five laps to go and went on to win the USAC Sprint Car feature as part of the Eastern Storm Series Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway.

In the regular 25-lap sprint car feature, Lucas Wolfe scored his second win of the season.

Robert Ballou started second and grabbed the race lead at the start of the 30-lap Eastern Storm main event. Bacon passed C.J. Leary for second on the first lap. Windom started fifth and moved into fourth with a pass of Tim Buckwalter. Fast timer Kevin Thomas Jr. was also moving forward and into the top five.

Bacon caught Ballou, but couldn’t make a pass for the lead on a fast racing surface.

The leaders had a close call with a slower car on the front stretch while Windom raced by Leary and into third.

The first caution of the race flew with 13 laps completed.

Windom, the defending USAC sprint car champion, challenged Bacon for second following the restart as the top three raced under a blanket. Bacon took the lead from Ballou off turn two on lap 21.

Windom took second one lap later.

Windom closed on Bacon and took the lead on lap 26 off turn two.

A caution flag slowed the pace with two laps to go.

Windom, of Canton, Ill., controlled the final laps scoring the $6,000 win.

“This win means a lot,” Windom said. “It was so cool to get the first Silver Crown win here (last year). It’s an historical place to win at. This car was awesome.”

Bacon, Ballou, Thomas Jr. and Pennsylvania’s Buckwalter completed the top five. Dave Darland, Chase Stockon, Tyler Courtney, Justin Grant and Leary rounded out the top 10.

Thomas Jr. set fast time and a new track record during qualifying with a lap of 19.509. The top eight drivers all broke the previous record of 20.035. Zach Daum, Jerry Coons Jr. and Tony DiMattia won the heat races.

Matt Boland, Frankie Herr and Jordan Givler won the sprint car heats and started at the front of the 25-lap main event.

Boland led the opening five laps before Herr got by with defending track champion Freddie Rahmer in third.

Sixth starting Lucas Wolfe moved into third as Rahmer took the lead from Herr on lap 12. Wolfe nearly took the lead with one move, but instead only took second from Herr.

Wolfe, of Mechanicsburg, got another good run off the bottom of turn four and got next to Rahmer nipping him at the line for the lead by .030. Wolfe jumped the cushion in turn two giving the lead back to Rahmer, but the caution flag flew and Wolfe reassumed the lead for the restart with six laps to go.

Wolfe controlled the restart and dominated the final laps winning by 3.377 seconds over Rahmer. He earned $3,800 and a free tire.

“I was able to move around a little bit and I found the bottom was a little bit better than what Freddie was doing,” said Wolfe. “It wasn’t enough to get him, but he had a little wrinkle once in traffic and I thought I was going to split both of them, but that didn’t quite happen. I was able to get beside him and I was lucky to beat him back to the line.”

T.J. Stutts and Brian Montieth passed Herr finishing third and fourth. Herr finished fifth. Brock Zearfoss, Givler, Steve Buckwalter, Antony Macri and Cory Haas rounded out the top 10.

Eastern Storm continues Saturday night at Port Royal Speedway.

THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES

NAPA AUTO PARTS THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES PRESENTS….

GONNA PARTY LIKE IT’S HIS BIRTHDAY: KEVIN THOMAS JR. SET FOR ASSAULT ON GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY, THURSDAY, JUNE 14 FOR USAC EASTERN STORM OPENER

BECHTELSVILLE, PA (June 12, 2018) –There will be plenty of reasons for Kevin Thomas, Jr. to celebrate heading into Thursday, June 14 and the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car Series Eastern Storm opener at Grandview Speedway.

Thomas currently sits atop the USAC series, holds three wins this season, and will spend his 27th birthday on ‘The Hill in Bechtelsville.’

“I can’t wait to get to the east coast,” Thomas said of the series’ only campaign in this region. “The tracks are a lot of fun, and the fans make us feel wanted. Grandview is on my birthday – and there’s no place I’d rather be.”

NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series brings the USAC stars to Grandview Speedway for the 12th consecutive event – the only track to be a part of the Eastern Storm since USAC's return to Pennsylvania in 2007 – on Thursday, June 14 with a 7:30 PM race time.

With three wins on the season, Thomas and the famed Hoffman Family No. 69 hold a 24-point advantage over Tyler ‘Sunshine’ Courtney – who picked up his fourth season win this past weekend at Knoxville Raceway.

“We’ve been running really strong so far,” Thomas said. “We had a little hiccup this past weekend at Knoxville, but we’re looking to getting back on track this week.”

Grandview Speedway’s $6,000-to-win, 40-Lap Jesse Hockett Classic – named after the 2009 race winner, who lost his life in a garage accident just before defending his win -- marks the first of a consecutive six race week for Thomas and his USAC brethren.

“An Eastern Storm Championship would be a great birthday present, and a nice addition to our resume,” Thomas admitted.

While Thomas holds 21 career USAC wins, only seven drivers have found Grandview Speedway Victory Lane. Previous event winners include Levi Jones (2007, 2010), Jesse Hockett (2009), Bobby East (2011), Bryan Clauson (2012, 2015), Daron Clayton (2013) Chase Stockon (2014), and Brady Bacon (2016).

Also on the agenda, the NASCAR 358 Modifieds compete in a 30-lap event with a $3,000 top prize. The event is open to all 358 Modified competitors that meet Grandview rule specifications. Competitors will draw for heat starting positions, where the top-12 qualified cars will re-draw for feature starting positions. The 30-lap event pays $1,000 for a fifth-place finish and $300 to start.

Top Modified combatants like Billy Pauch Sr., Ryan Watt, Jeff Strunk, Craig VonDohren, and current Grandview point leader, Brett Kressley aim to excite the greatest race fans in the area.

General Admission ticket pricing for Thursday, June 14 is $30 for Adults, Children 6-11 are $10, and Kids 5 & under are FREE! Pit Admission pricing is $35.

Advance tickets are available now and may be ordered by calling 443-513-4456. Please provide your name and the number of tickets requested. Tickets may be picked up and paid for on race night after 3:30 PM. Advance ticket holders may enter the grandstands at 4:30 PM, one-half hour before the sale of General Admission tickets.

JIM SIEGEL ENDS YEAR-LONG WIN DROUGHT WITH A VICTORY AT LINCOLN SPEEDWAY;

Jeff Halligan puts Hammaker No.66 into Victory Lane in Winning 360/350 Sprint Challenge

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 6/9/2018 – Jim Siegel and the fans finally got a win Saturday night at Lincoln Speedway.

After six straight weeks of rain-outs the fans got a win by being treated to some good old racing Saturday night. And for New Oxford’s Jim Siegel, he finally got a win after a year-long drought by winning the 25-lap $4,000-to-win 410 sprint feature.

Fourth-starting Siegel chased down pole-sitter and race-long leader Landon Myers of York to be in position to take advantage of an eighth lap caution restart to take the lead. The third-generation racer then had six-time champ Brian Montieth get to second place just as he grabbed the lead and held him off through the first half the race.

But before Montieth could make a serious bid for the lead, along came seventh-starting Freddie Rahmer who passed Montieth for second just prior to the halfway mark.

Rahmer closed and began trying to slip under and then around Siegel while racing through lapped traffic as the laps wound down.

With five laps to go Rahmer got his nose under Siegel exiting the fourth turn. But Siegel held his ground and closed the door on Rahmer heading into the second turn.

Siegel then drove flawlessly through lapped traffic the final laps to record his first win anywhere since September 2016. Siegel took the checkered 1.22 seconds ahead of Rahmer for his 14th career win at the Pigeon Hills oval.

11th-starting Alan Krimes got by a failing Montieth sprinter on the final lap to finish third. Montieth held on for fourth, and Tim Glatfelter fifth.

Completing the top-10 were Cory Haas, 19th-starting Chad Trout, Kyle Moody, Glenndon Forsythe, and Anthony Macri.

Heats for the 27 410 Sprinters were won by Myers, Cole Young, and Dwayne Gutshall, with Trout winning the consolation.

Jeff Halligan represented the 358 sprint division well by leading all 25-lap of the special 360/358 Sprint Challenge. Halligan drove the Hammaker No.66 out front at the drop of the green from his outside front row starting spot and survived a crash-marred early portion of the event and then held off sprint car veteran Lucas Wolfe the final laps to record the win.

It was Halligan’s second win of the year at Lincoln and the seventh of his career.

Wolfe was second, followed by polesitter Chris Arnold, Troy Wagaman, Jr., and Chandler Leiby.

Completing the top-10 were Curt Michael, Cody Fletcher, Kevin Nagy, Ashley Cappetta, and Tyler Walton.

Heats for the 40 360/358 Challenge sprinters were won by Michael, Dylan Norris, Arnold, and Wagaman. Twin Consolations were won by Adam Carberry and Bryn Gohn.

Next Saturday night, June 16th, Lincoln Speedway will try again to run the 15TH ANNUAL WELDON STERNER MEMORIAL for the 410 Sprints ($3,500 to win), along with the 358 Sprints, and Mid-Atlantic Modifieds.

Competition Pit gates will open at 5 PM, Spectator Pit Admission & General Admission gates will open at 5:30 PM. Hot laps will get underway at 7 PM, with time trials getting underway at 7:30 PM.

Greg Hodnett Gets First 410 Sprint Win Of Williams Grove Season, Covert Survives First Lap Melee To Take Late Models

6/8/18

Mechanicsburg – Greg Hodnett won his first 410 sprint car feature of the season on Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway, driving by TJ Stutts on a restart to get the $3,800 victory.

The win was the 73rd of Hodnett’s career at Williams Grove.

The Tri-Track Challenge super late model main was taken by Jason Covert after a horrible opening lap backstretch crash that claimed some 10 cars out of the field.

TJ Stutts and Hodnett had the front row for the stat of the sprint car main and Hodnett dogged Stutts for the lead from the very start but couldn’t find a way around him despite relentless efforts to snag the top spot.

The first caution flag of the race appeared on the third lap, breaking up the battle and only one more lap could be completed before the red flag unfurled for a backstretch rollover by Jared Esh.

Hodnett again stalked Stutts when action resumed but no matter what the Spring Grove driver tried, Stutts was able to keep him at bay.

The leaders entered the backmarkers on the 12th tour, still with Hodnett hounding Stutts.

And then on lap 14 another red flag came out, this time for a first turn flip by Steve Buckwalter.

The ensuing restart saw a different stragegy unfold for Hodnett as instead of racing into the first turn a lane higher than Stutts, he entered way up top on the cushion and blasted the top to get a nice run off of the second corner.

This gave him a surge down the backchute that allowed him to bolt to Stutt’s inside in the third turn and take control of the event with 10 laps to go.

Hodnett never looked back after taking over the point while Lucas Wolfe took second away from Stutts with eight laps to go.

Wolfe was making good time around the track but Hodnett ended up taking the win by 2.650 seconds with Cory Haas crossing the line in third followed by Stutts and Freddie Rahmer.

Sixth through 10th went to Anthony Macri, Brandon Rahmer, Rodney Westhafer, Jimmy Siegel and Ryan Taylor.

Heats went to Stutts, Hodnett and Brandon Rahmer.

The 30-lap super late model main saw Rick Eckert and Coleby Frye start on the front row followed by Tyler Bare, Jason Covert, Jeff Rine and Bryan Bernheisel.

Frye got the drop on Eckert when action began but “the big one” was soon to follow as Jeff Rine, Tyler Bare and Covert went three-wide down the backstretch.

With Rine down low and Bare in the middle, Bare was the first to back out of the throttle as the trip approached the end of the backchute but as he did so, contact was made with both Covert and Rine.

And while Covert kept control, Rine got turned sideways and slammed head-on into the inside guardrail before careening back up across the track as the entire field bore down on him and the third corner.

Massive carnage and tremendous impacts ensued with 10 cars collected in the melee.

Involved was Rine along with Gary Stuhler, Billy Wampler, Bare, Mike Lupfer, Reese Masiello, Matt Nailor, Dave Brouse Jr., Jamie Lathroum and Jerry BArd.

Luckily, all drivers were reported to have escaped injury although several cars were totally destroyed.

Rick Eckert then beat Frye back to the line when the first lap was restarted with Covert up to third.

Covert took second from Frye on the third lap and gave chase of the leader from that point on.

Slowly but surely, Covert tracked down the pacesetter, racing to Eckert’s inside repeatedly in the third corner.

He finally made the move work on the 15th tour, edging to Eckert’s inside at the line and then seconds later, Eckert slowed to a stop with a blown left rear tire.

A final caution flag with nine laps to go produced an exciting three-car battle for second between Dylan Yoder, Frye and Bare who restarted at the rear after the opening lap carnage.

The trio swapped the spot several times over the final laps before Frye took it for good while Bare ended up third followed by Yoder and Matt Cosner.

Sixth through 10th went to Tyler Horst, Bryan Bernheisel, Danny Snyder, Dave Stamm and Larry Baer.

Heats went to Eckert, Rine and Frye.

Bernheisel set fast time with a lap of 20.800 seconds.

THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES

NAPA AUTO PARTS THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES PRESENTS. . . .

12TH ANNUAL EASTERN STORM BREWING AND HEADING TO GRANDVIEW WITH JESSE HOCKETT CLASSIC THURSDAY, JUNE 14

It's a phrase I hate to say, especially with all the rainy weather we've experienced this year. The EASTERN STORM is brewing and the thunder and lightning are heading east.

For the 12th consecutive year, the AMSOIL USAC Non-Wing Sprints EASTERN STORM will open at the Grandview Speedway on Thursday night, June 14. This wildly popular event is always a crowd pleaser as the nationally known stars rim-ride the outside boilerplate of the one-third mile Grandview Speedway in Bechtelsville, PA. The USAC Non-wing sprints will team up with the 358 NASCAR Modifieds with gates opening at 5:00 and qualifying taking the green flag at 7:30 PM.

With all the hype of this event, let's take a moment to remember Jesse Hockett, one of USAC's finest who lost his life in an electrical accident in 2010, preparing for the Eastern Storm. It was the prior year, 2009 when The "Rocket Man" swept the Twin 20's in the same night at Grandview Speedway. Hockett had one of the most exciting driving styles, a passion for the race fans and always a joy to hear when he was interviewed in victory lane. Hockett is certainly missed but he will always be remembered with the 40 lap, $6,000 to win Jesse Hockett Classic.

The RT Racing #14 USAC Sprint Car driven by Trevor Kobylarz is running the Berks County Animal Rescue League "Patriotic Paws" Logo during the 2018 season. Patriotic Paws is a program to save animals and to honor those who've bravely served our country. The team's goals are to raise awareness about the program and raise funds to support the program and the rescue league. There are two avenues to help the cause:

Kobylarz's RT Racing Team will be selling team t-shirts with an added twist. The cost for the shirt is $20 for Small through X-Large, $22 for 2X-Large, and $23 for 3X-Large. There are 3 colors available, Black, Grey, and Blue.

Second is to bring pet food to Round 1 of the Eastern Storm at Grandview Speedway. Donators will receive a complimentary special edition Patriotic Paws Trevor Kobylarz Eastern Storm Shirt. We are encouraging people to donate a 10+LB Bag. People are also encouraged to bring blankets and toys to be donated as well. You are also encourage to donate blankets and Toys as well. The proceeds will go to supporting the Rescue League.

USAC will bring their absolute best to Grandview Speedway on Thursday, June 14 to include the People's Champion Dave Darland of Lincoln, IN, Tyler "Sunshine" Courtney from Indianapolis, IN, "The Mad Man" Robert Ballou of Rocklin, CA, Isaac Chapple from Willow Branch, IN, Justin Grant of Ione, CA and Brady Bacon of Broken Arrow, OK . Bacon is the defending winner of the Jesse Hockett Classic "on the hill".

In the 358 Modifieds, the locals always put on a show in chase of the $3,000 win in the 30 lap feature. Craig VonDohren, Brett Kressley, Jeff Strunk, Ryan Godown and Rick Laubach are some of the expected entries. Fifth in the feature will pay $1,000 and $300 is offered just to take the green flag. This event will be a NASCAR point race.

General Admission ticket pricing for Thursday, June 14 is $30 for Adults, Children 6-11 are $10 and Kids 5 & under are FREE! Pit Admission pricing is $35.

Advance tickets are on sale now and may be ordered by calling 443-513-4456. Please provide your name and the number of tickets requested.

Trey Starks Strikes For First Career Port Royal Sprint Car Win

 Rine Holds Off Yoder For Tri-Track Late Model Challenge
Kevin Imes claims xtreme stocks

6/2/18

PORT ROYAL, Pa. –Trey Starks of Puyallup, Washington, struck of his first career Port Royal Speedway sprint car win on Saturday night, out-dueling Aaron Reutzel and Greg Hodnett for the victory, worth $3,600.

In the 30-lap Tri-Track Late Model Challenge event for super late models, Jeff Rine held off the advances of Dylan Yoder to pick up his third win of the season at the track, worth $3,000.

And the 15-lap xtreme stock main was taken by Kevin Imes to close out the night.

Jared Esh and Trey Starks began the 25-lap 410 sprint car main on the front row and Starks raced into control when action got underway with sixth starter Aaron Reutzel of Clute, Texas, blasting into second on the first lap.

Point leader Greg Hodnett started eighth in the field and followed Reutzel through on the opening lap to take over third.

But Hodnett would struggle to keep pace with leader Stars and Reutzel as the field strung out and the race entered traffic on the sixth tour.

While both leaders were slinging around the top, Reutzel gradually closed in on Starks and took his first stab at control on the 12th tour when he attempted a dive underneath in the third turn only to come up short and lose some ground to the leader.

Reutzel regrouped and again dialed in for the lead and took another shot in the third turn with 10 laps to go, again coming up short and losing ground.

It took two more laps for Reutzel again to catch the leader as he worked traffic and this time he put on a blast across the bottom that netted him control as he slid up to catch the cushion in turn four.

Not to be outdone, Starks turned the car and dropped off of the cushion to drag race Reutzel up the frontchute as the pair headed to the line.

Reutzel came down across the track in an attempt to thwart Starks but the Washington pilot reclaimed the lead at the stripe, albeit a narrow advantage.

Seconds later, Reutzel blew a left rear tire and clouted the third turn wall, ending his race.

The restart put Hodnett on Stark’s tail with Hodnett taking his shot in the first turn as he attempted a bottom groove move to take the lead but Starks rode his outside lane momentum to drive back around Hodnett and maintain control.

After the restart skirmish, Starks worked around the track to take the win aboard Scott Gobrecht’s No. 44 by 1.750 seconds ahead of Hodnett.

TJ Stutts was third followed by Brock Zearfoss and Jared Esh.

Sixth through 10th went to Anthony Macri, Blane Heimbach, Dylan Cisney, Gerard McIntyre Jr., and Mike Wagner.

Starks became the 190th different driver to win a sprint car race in the history of Port Royal Speedway.

Heats went to Paul McMAhan, Stutts and Starks with AJ Flick taking the consolation.

Dylan Yoder and Jeff Rine held the front row to start the 30-lap Tri-Track Challenge race for the super late models and Rine edged ahead of Yoder on the first lap.

Only the first five laps could be recorded before Andy Haus blew a rear tire, bunching the field for a restart.

Yoder worked the high line throughout the entire race, keeping pace with Rine during the first half of the event but failing to challenge.

A second caution flag unfurled with 14 laps to go and the restart again saw Yoder challenging Rine for command.

As the event wore on, Yoder’s outside runs seemed to be working better and with five laps to go, he was nose to tail with Rine in traffic.

It was then that both leaders nearly crashed out of the event as they raced behind a backmarker onto the frontstretch.

With the slow car in their line, Rine refused to yield the lane for another line and Yoder got a great run off of the fourth corner.

This bottled up the pair with Yoder getting into Rine’s rear deck and Rine wiggling, nearly getting out of control as he tried to avoid running into the slow car just in front.

Somehow, both drivers recovered to keep their cars straight and then Rine drove away during the final three laps for the win.

Yoder crossed the line 1.427 seconds behind while Kyle Lee finished third followed by Tyler Bare and Coleby Frye.

Sixth through 10th went to Matt Cosner, Jerry Bard, Tim Smith Jr., Mike Lupfer and Andy Haus.

Heats went to Rine, Frye and Yoder with Chris Casner winning the consolation.

Kyle Lee set quick time over the field with a lap of 19.292 seconds.

Kevin Imes led all 15 laps of the xtreme stock main to record his first win of the year and the second of his Port Royal career.

Josh Bender and Jeremy Stremmel rounded out the top three.

Danny Dietrich Wins First Of Williams Grove 410 Sprint Season Rich Eichelberger and Doug Hammaker split 358 sprint mains

6/1/18

Mechanicsburg – Danny Dietrich of Gettysburg scored his first Williams Grove Speedway sprint car win of the season on Friday night, taking home $4,100 for the victory that included a $500 bonus for winning from the fourth row.

Veteran Rich Eichelberger took the win in the make-up 358 sprint main, held over to be completed after rains hit with four laps completed on May 11.

The regularly slated 358 sprint main was taken by Doug Hammaker.

The 25-lap 410 sprint main was marred by a pair of red flags before the first lap could even be completed.

The first red flag came out when Adrian Shaffer slammed the inside frontstretch row and flipped over while Tyler Ross also flipped coming out of turn four.

The ensuing restart saw a five-car melee ensue on the frontstretch that involved TJ Stutts, Kody Lehman, Nicole Bower, Dwight Leppo and Jim Shuster.

On each attempted start including the one that saw the first lap able to be completed, Dover’s Landon Myers took the lead over Eric Tomecek.

Tomecek was soon overtaken by fourth starter Lucas Wolfe however although Wolfe was unable to close in on Myers for the lead.

Instead, he eventually had to contend with Danny Dietrich, who moved into third with six laps completed.

Dietrich chased down Wolfe and snared the spot narrowly on the ninth tour.

And by that time, Myers was far enough in front to lead another four laps before Dietrich could catch him.

His first attempt at taking the lead saw Myers fight back around the outside of the first and second turns to reclaim the spot but seconds later as the pair raced into the third turn, Dietrich shot low and came up with the lead before running away from the field to the finish.

Wolfe relegated Myers to third with three laps to go before Freddie Rahmer backed him up to fourth at the finish.

Cory Haas rode home fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Greg Hodnett, Steve Buckwalter, Rodney Westhafer, Anthony Macri and Mallie Shuster.

Heats went to Myers and Adrian Shaffer.

The victory was the 19th of Dietrich’s careeer at Williams Grove.

Doug Hammaker would end up leading all 20 laps of the regulary-slated 358 sprint main.

Brie Hershey raced a challenging second for the first three laps before Chase Dietz overtook her for the spot.

Dietz was riding Hammaker’s fuel cell, appearing ready to make a move for control when the red flag appeared with six laps to go when point leader Kevin Nouse flipped outside the first corner in wild fashion.

On the restart, Hammaker looked stronger and pulled away to the win, his first of the season at the track and sixth of his overall Williams Grove career.

Dietz settled for second followed by Troy Wagaman Jr., Hershey and Matt Findlay.

Sixth through 10th went to Todd Rittenhouse Jr., Jeff Halligan, Scott Fisher, Scott Arnold and Brent Shearer.

Heats went to Fisher, Hammaker and Hershey.

Rich Eichelberger of Dillsburg restarted second behind Todd Rittenhouse Jr. with four laps completed in the make-up 358 sprint main only after the slated leader took himself out during warm ups.

Cody Keller was leading the race on May 11 when the rains hit and was slated to restart with the lead only to flip in practice laps and sideline himself for the night.

Rittenhouse led until lap 14 when Eichelberger drove to his outside coming out of turn two to take command and the victory.

It was the third win of Eichelberger’s career at the track.

Troy Wagaman Jr. got by Rittenhouse for second with Dwight Leppo finishing fourth and Brie Hershey riding home fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Chase Dietz, Glenndon Forsythe, Brent Shearer, Kevin Nouse and Chris Frank.

THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES

AMSOIL USAC NON-WING SPRINTS 12TH ANNUAL EASTERN STORM TO OPEN AT GRANDVIEW THURSDAY, JUNE 14

BECHTELSVILLE, PA – If you have never seen the USAC non-wing sprint cars at Grandview, block the date of Thursday night, June 14 and plan to attend the Thunder on the Hill Racing Series event at the Grandview Speedway. The always exciting one-third mile high banked oval is the perfect venue for the exciting and well known USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car Series. The Eastern Storm, now in its’ twelfth season, and as tradition, will open at the Grandview Speedway.

The USAC non-wing sprints with a 410 motor have a reputation for wheel-banging, rooster tails and slide jobs and its’ all just part of the show. At Grandview Speedway, the USAC drivers are most comfortable grazing the outside boiler plate with their rear bumper taking the longest route around the track.

For all of the reasons mentioned, this event is one of the hottest tickets of the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series. Along with the nationally known USAC Stars, the local favorites of the 358 Modifieds will be on the racing program. Both divisions will compete in qualifying leading up to the 40 lap $6,000 to win Jesse Hockett USAC Non-Wing Classic and a 30 lap, $3,000 to win modified main event.

It all started In 2007 when Thunder on the Hill special events promoter, Bob Miller and the Rogers Family, brought the nation’s longest touring Sprint Car group back to Pennsylvania after a nearly 30-year absence from the region.

“I vividly remember USAC being such an integral part of the Reading Fairgrounds history,” Miller recollects. “In some ways, my love of Reading made me so passionate about bringing USAC back to the east coast and specifically back to Berks County at Grandview.”

USAC came back in full force and remains one of the must-see events of the racing season.

Forty Eastern Storm events have been held since the debut of the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car Championship in 2007. Levi Jones and Bryan Clauson are tied with the most wins of Eastern Storm history with six victories each. Five different drivers reached victory lane in 2017 – three for the first time in Storm history — while Chris Windom went on to win the Eastern Storm Championship.

Heading into the 12th Eastern Storm, the Bechtelsville, PA dirt track opens the tour with the Jesse Hockett Classic, a 40 lap battle for the non-wing 410 sprint cars joined by the 358 modifieds in this Double Header. Gates open at 5 PM with race time set or 7:30 PM. Grandview and Thunder on the Hill are the only facility to have held a USAC event in every year of Eastern Storm history. Defending winner of this event on the hill is Brady Bacon.

The series heads to Mechanicsburg, PA’s Williams Grove Speedway on Friday, June 15, while Port Royal Speedway brings the series into night number three on Saturday, June 16.

York Haven, PA’s Susquehanna Speedway lands on the schedule for the sixth consecutive year, on Sunday, June 17. For the first time, United States Auto Club drivers head to Bridgeport Speedway on Monday, June 18 and the Storm concludes on Tuesday, June 19 at Weedsport Speedway.

Past Eastern Storm winners like Robert Ballou – who swept all three 2015 events, Brady Bacon – who holds wins at Grandview Speedway and Port Royal Speedway, Chad Boespflug, and Chase Stockon are expected for competition.

The Eastern Storm kicks off on Thursday, June 14 with the Jesse Hockett Classic – dedicated to the memory of the 2009 Grandview race winner. On that night, Hockett thrilled the crowd winning both feature events in the same night.

Key sponsors are returning for the 29th season of the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series. Joining NAPA Auto Parts is Pioneer Pole Buildings, Levan Machine and Truck Equipment and GALCO Business Communications.

Advance tickets for the Grandview Speedway USAC/358 Modified event are available by calling 443-513-4456. Callers are required to leave their name, phone number, and the number of tickets requested. We will call you back only if we have questions. Callers may then pick-up and pay for their tickets at the Grandview Speedway’s Will-Call Window after 4 PM.

Lucas Wolfe Makes It Back-To-Back Port Royal Weikert Memorial Wins Rick Eckert Sweeps Super Late Model Port Royal Weekend

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 5/27/18

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Lucas Wolfe made it back to back triumphs in the Port Royal Speedway Bob Weikert Memorial for 410 sprint cars on Sunday night, scoring his second win in a row in the prestigious race, earning $10,000 for the big win.

In the Northeast Ultimate Super Late Model Series feature, York’s Rick Eckert completed a clean sweep of weekend late model action at the track, scoring a convincing win in the 35-lap main that paid $5,000 to win.

Polesitter Dylan Cisney jumped into the lead over second starter Logan Wagner at the start of the 30-lap Bob Weikert Memorial for the sprint cars and was holding sway on the lightning-fast track when the first caution flag of the race unfurled with four laps completed for the stopped racer of Anthony Macri.

The restart saw Cisney maintain control as he hooked the cushion in every turn to maintain his advantage.

With 10 laps in, Cisney was holding a .836 second lead over Wagner and Wolfe with Lance Dewease running fourth.

Cisney then hit traffic and that really bunched the front of the field up as Wagner narrowed the gap by lap 13 all the while having Wolfe, Dewease and David Gravel within one turn as all five cars battled for control at the same time.

Wagner was able to slip by Cisney in the second turn on the 14th tour but then Cisney attempted a comeback that also lost him second as Wagner crossed the stripe with a .194 second lead over Wolfe.

Cisney then regrouped and reclaimed second from Wolfe during the dizzying, high-speed dance at the front that was being spun off between all five front runners.

The breathtaking and dizzying pace between all five was slowed with 17 away when Cory Haas stopped on the backstretch.

The restart saw Wolfe dispose of Cisney for good and set his sights on Wagner who appeared to be ready to run to his first win aboard his new ride in the Zemco No. 1

But with eight laps to go, his dreams of victory went over a cliff when his left rear tire disintegrated, handing the lead to Wolfe with Cisney second followed by Dewease, Gravel and Brock Zearfoss.

Dewease pounced on the low side on the restart and set Cisney back a spot before trying just to keep the leader in sight.

And then Cisney burst a left rear with four laps to go, again bunching the field.

Dewease was never able to challenge over the final four circuits as Wolfe drove away on the restart.

Wolfe took his eighth career Port Royal win by 1.264 seconds over Dewease, Gravel, Zearfoss and Ryan Smith.

Sixth through 10th went to Danny Dietrich, Greg Hodnett, Trey Starks, Brent Marks and Freddie Rahmer.

Heats went to Mike Wagner, Cisney, Steve Buckwalter and Dietrich with Jared Esh taking the consolation.

Fast time was set by Greg Hodnett with a lap of 15.234 seconds, an average speed of 126.829 mph.

Rick Eckert would lead all 35 laps of the super late model main, chased by Jeff Rine throughout.

The race was riddled with caution flags including on laps one, three, nine, 14 and 16.

Eckert started second in the race with Rine starting third and Rine got around Gene Knaub for second on the lap one restart.

For the first half of the race, Rine seemed to have a chance at the win as Eckert allowed him to close in around the corners but during the second half of the race, especially through traffic starting on lap 25, Eckert poured on the power and speed to take his sixth career Port Royal win by seven seconds flat.

Ross Robinson and 20th starter Kyle Lee raced hard for third during the final 10 laps with Robinson holding on to the spot at the finish.

Lee’s massive run from the back netted him fourth with Donny Schatz finishing fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Matt Cosner, Dan Stone, Dylan Yoder, Gary Stuhler and Ryan Montgomery.

Heats went to Eckert, Rine and Robinson with Dan Stone winning the consolation race.

Fast time was set by Eckert with a lap of 17.677 seconds.

Lance Dewease Opens Port Royal Weikert Memorial Weekend With Win In 461 Rick Eckert Scores Northeast Ultimate Late Models

5/26/18

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Lance Dewease of Fayetteville picked up his 109th career Port Royal Speedway 410 sprint car win on Saturday night in the Bob Weikert Memorial weekend Fallen Heroes Championship at Port Royal speedway.

Dewease’s 30-lap win was worth $5,000 and it came aboard a Walt Dyer Masonry No. 461 throw-back car painted to mirror the mount he drove for Dyer decades ago.

York’s Rick Eckert took the win in the Fallen Heroes Championship for the Northeast Ultimate Super Late Model Series, pocketing $3,000 for his fifth career win at the oval.

Dewease started third in the sprint car field and would end up leading the first lap over David Gravel and Lucas Wolfe but not before exchanging the point twice.

As Wolfe and Gravel battled for control into the first turn as the green flag unfurled Dewease was stalking on the low side and drove right by both cars to get command but Gravel rode the top lane to get control back as the pair shot onto the backstretch.

Seconds later the trio blasted into the third turn and again Dewease stuck down low in his money lane and rode the line into the lead.

The first caution flag of the race came out with two laps in when Logan Wagner clouted the outside first and second turn wall before coming to a stop.

A double file restart saw Dewease choosing the inside line and he made it work over Gravel when action resumed.

Dewease entered traffic with eight laps away finding Gravel and eighth starter Greg Hodnett in tow.

The leader had a 3.930 second advantage when a red flag stopped action on the 13th tour after some hard contact in the first turn.

Danny Dietrich was running seventh in the field when he got out of shape in the first corner and spun.

Aaron Ott slammed into Dietrich’s mount and flipped, but escaped injury. Dylan Cisney was also involved.

The restart again saw Dewease choose the inside lane with Gravel flanking him and he drove away on the restart and over the final 17 laps to record the popular victory by 4.307 seconds.

It was his second consecutive victory in the Fallen Heroes Championship to open the Weikert Memorial weekend.

Gravel was second followed by Greg Hodnett, Lucas Wolfe and Brock Zearfoss.

Sixth through 10th went to TJ Stutts, Logan Schuchart, Brent Marks, Dylan Cisney and Trey Starks.

Buckwalter Claims Walt Dyer Tribute At Williams Grove Friday
Austin Bishop wins second 305 main of year at track

5/25/18
 

Mechanicsburg – Steve Buckwalter of Royersford wired the field to pick up the Walt Dyer Tribute Race at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, pocketing $4,610 for his ninth career sprint car win at the oval.

Austin Bishop likewise wired the field in the 305 sprint main to pick up his second 305 win of the season at Williams Grove Speedway.

Buckwalter started on the pole of the 25-lap 410 sprint car main with TJ Stutts to his outside.

The first start of the main was red flagged for a five-car tangle coming out of the third turn that collected Chad Trout, Mallie Shuster, Rodney Westhafer, Ryan Taylor and Danny Dietrich.

The ensuing restart saw Buckwalter take control over Stutts and Greg Hodnett in what would turn out to be a non-stop affair.

Campaigning a throw back paint scheme in honor of Dyer and his iconic No. 461 race car, Lance Dewease started fifth in the field and battled fourth starter Anthony Macri for the first half of the race in an effort to take the fourth spot.

Dewease was on a campaign to pick up the feature in honor of his former car owner Dyer however it was not to be as Buckwalter proved stout at the point.

Hodnett got by Stutts for second on the seventh tour and chased Buckwalter over the rest of the distance but was never able to get close enough to mount a challenge.

Buckwalter and his No. 17B ended up crossing the finish line .805 seconds ahead of Hodnett with Stutts riding hom third followed by Dewease and Macri.

Sixth through 10th went to Brock Zearfoss, Lucas Wolfe, Cory Haas, Aaron Ott and Brian Montieth.

Heats went to Montieth, Stutts and Macri with Alan Krimes taking the consolation race.

Lance Dewease set quick time with a lap of 16.556 seconds.

Prior to the races, Dyer drivers Dewease, Steve Siegel, Mike Wagner, Don Hill, Joey Allen, Paul Lotier, Jimmy Sheaffer, Van May, Tommy Beavers, Cliff Brian, Tom Stimely and Len Thompson all joined Dyer for a reunion and autograph session.

Bishop led all 20 l aps of the 305 sprint main to pick up his win.

Ken Duke Jr. lost second early in the race but then reclaimed the spot for the finish.

Jeff Geiges rode hom third followed by Scott Ellerman and Zach Newlin.

Heats for the 42 cars in action went to Rick Stief, Mike Alleman, Darren Miller and Jon Scarborough.

Twin consolations went to Jonathan Jones and Alex Potosky.

Dewease Rockets To 89th Career Win In Williams Grove Sprints Rains halt 358 sprints

5/11/18

Mechanicsburg – Lance Dewease of Fayetteville rocketed to his 89th career Williams Grove Speedway sprint car win on Friday night, worth $4,000 in what was a tune up for the regulars as they prepare for next week’s invasion by the World of Outlaws.

The victory put Dewease just one back of tying Fred Rahmer for the most sprint car wins in history at the oval.

Steve Buckwalter and Dewease earned the pole for the 25-lap main event and Buckwalter beat Dewease off of the blocks when the green flag fell over the field.

However only one lap could be scored before Rodney Westhafer stopped on the track, slowing the pace.

The restart turned to a red flag when TJ Dehaven hopped a wheel in the first turn and flipped outside the track.

Buckwalter of Royersford got away from Dewease when action resumed but it only took a few laps for Dewease to get his No. 69K clicking and he began biting into Buckwalter’s advantage by lap seven.

For three consecutive laps Dewease drove down considerable chunks of the lead and as the pair crossed the stripe to complete lap nine, they were nose to tail.

A low swoop through the first and second turns just moments later netted Dewease the lead as he bit fast off of the inside of the second turn to blast into control.

And from there he worked traffic with ease, slicing through the field to have a full straightaway advantage over the field by lap 17.

With Dewease out front, Lucas Wolfe took second shortly after the halfway point and then he and Danny Dietrich battled for the spot late in the race.

Another yellow flag with four laps to go wiped out Dewease’s 4.3 second margin and on the restart Wolfe buzzed the top in the first and second turns in an effort to steal the win but Dewease’s low line was his money lane as he pulled away off of the second turn.

The battle for second between Wolfe and Dietrich then continued with Dietrich gaining the spot on lap 23 before a final caution flag with a lap to go again bunched the field.

Wolfe again buzzed the turns one and two top lane trying to regain second but Dietrich prevailed at the finish for second.

Dewease’s margin of victory was 1.157 seconds. It was his second oval win of the season.

Buckwalter finished fourth in the feature with James McFadden crossing the line in fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to TJ Stutts, Anthony Macri, 17th starter Brandon Rahmer, Greg Hodnett and Alan Krimes.

Heats went to Stutts, Dewease and Buckwalter with Buckwalter winning the dash.

Stutts set fast time with a lap of 16.521 seconds.

The 20-lap 358 sprint main was under caution on lap four when rains hit the track, forcing postponement of the balance of the feature.

A date to complete the event will be announced in the near future.

Heats for the 358 sprints went to Cody Keller, Todd Rittenhouse Jr., and Dwight Leppo.

Keller was leading the feature over Rittenhouse when the rains began to fall.

Feature Finishes 5/11/18

410 sprints: 1. Lance Dewease, 2. Danny Dietrich, 3. Lucas Wolfe, 4. Steve Buckwalter, 5. James McFadden, 6. TJ Stutts, 7. Anthony Macri, 8. Brandon Rahmer, 9. Greg Hodnett, 10. Alan Krimes, 11.

HEIMBACH SCORES POPULAR VICTORY IN INAUGURAL LUCAS OIL AMERICAN SPRINT CAR SERIES ELEVEN OAKS FARM/MACH 1 CHASSIS BATTLE OF THE GROVES IN FRONT OF LARGE HOMETOWN CROWD

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Selinsgrove’s Blane Heimbach returned to the track where he got his sprint car racing career started as a teenager and scored a popular victory in the inaugural Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series Eleven Oaks Farm/Mach 1 Chassis Battle of the Groves Saturday night at Selinsgrove Speedway.

The win in the 25-lap 360 sprint car feature was worth $5,500 for Heimbach, including $1,500 in bonus money from Mach 1 Chassis in Mechanicsburg, at the wheel of the Creasy Signs/Goff Racing No. 12. It was the former three-time champion’s 37th career win in 358-360 sprint car competition at the track.

A stellar field of 41 360 sprint car drivers representing various parts of the United States and Canada as part of the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour and in conjunction with the United Racing Club was on hand and completed the open wheel portion of the show in just two hours with impending inclement weather.

The race was Night 2 of the Battle of the Groves weekend with Greg Hodnett of York taking the win in Friday’s race at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg.

The 20-lap limited late model and 15-lap pro stock features were postponed due to rain that hit the speedway about 9:30 p.m. Track officials will announce the rescheduled dates for those events.

Selinsgrove Speedway, celebrating its historic #WideOpen2018 season, returns to action at 7 p.m. Saturday, May 12, featuring 360 sprint cars, PASS 305 sprint cars, super late models, and pro stocks. Grandstand gates open at 5 p.m.

Front row starter Blane Heimbach took the early lead at the start of the sprint car feature using the high line around turns one and two. On the second circuit, fourth-place starter Trey Starks passed polesitter Seth Bergman for second and set his sights on Heimbach.

The race’s only caution flag unfurled on lap three when Eric Tomacek spun in turn two and nearly collected Jason Shultz.

When the race resumed, Heimbach stormed around the top of the race track as seventh-place starter Mark Smith began to show some speed and moved into the fourth position on lap five. Davie Franek, who started tenth, entered the top five on the eighth circuit.

At the halfway point, Heimbach began to encounter slower traffic. With 10 laps to race, Franek powered into fourth and quickly caught Bergman in a race for third. In the final five laps, Starks cleared the slower traffic and made a last-ditch effort to reel in Heimbach but came up 1.96 seconds short at the checkered flag. Franek, Smith and Bergman rounded out the top five.

Within minutes after the checkered flag fell, heavier rain began to fall on the speedway, forcing the postponed of the limited late model and pro stock features.

Sprint car heat races were won by Ryan Kissinger, Seth Bergman, Mark Smith, Blake Heimbach, and Mike Walter. Three Hoosier Tire qualifiers went to Robbie Stillwaggon, Roger Crockett, and Eddie Strada. Ryan Smith and J.J. Grasso won the pair of BMRS B-Mains. One point-based provisional was used by Skylar Gee, with the promoter’s provisional awarded to Chad Layton.

Danny Dietrich And Dylan Yoder Outrun Port Royal Rain Saturday 305 sprint and econo late mains to be made up June 30 and May 12

 5/4/18

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Danny Dietrich bested TJ Stutts to claim his fourth career Port Royal Speedway 410 sprint car win on Saturday night worth $3,600, but his first under the lights at the historic track as all three of his previous wins had taken place under the Labor Day sunshine.

In the 22-lap super late model main, Dylan Yoder of Selinsgrove overtook Tim Smith Jr. for his second victory of the season at the track, worth $2,000.

Stutts and Dietrich earned the front row for the start of the 25-lap sprint car main and the pair immediately did battle when action began.

Dietrich passed Stutts a total three times during the first two laps before he could make it stick coming out of turn four to complete the second lap.

The pair exchanged the top spot on the opening lap in the first and second turns and again in turns three and four before a low swoop through three and four on the second tour netted him control.

Dietrich then went to the cushion to begin putting daylight between himself and the rest of the field, entering traffic on lap 10.

While Dietrich held sway well out in front, the race was hectic for second through fifth between Stutts, Mike Wagner, Logan Wagner and Greg Hodnett.

Both Wagners raced hard for third for several laps, exchanging the spot several times with Stutts just in front before Logan stepped up to the plate and took third long enough to begin challenging for second during the final laps.

Aboard the Zemco No. 1, Logan Wagner passed Stutts for second on laps 19 and 21 only to see Stutts change lanes and reclaim the spot, where he would finish albeit 3.280 seconds behind Dietrich.

Logan Wagner earned his second podium finish of the season in third while Mike Wagner was fourth with Hodnett finishing fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Lucas Wolfe, Brock Zearfoss, Freddie Rahmer, Steve Buckwalter and James McFadden. Heats went to Stutts, Wolfe and Zearfoss.

The super late model main went non-stop as well with Tim Smith Jr. and Trent Brenneman starting on the front row of the main.

Dylan Yoder started fourth in the field and drove into second on the opening lap behind Smith.

Yoder encircled the track running higher than Smith and consistently cut down his advantage during the first half of the race before overtaking the Long Hollow driver at the halfway point.

And once in front, Yoder cruised to the victory by 2.353 seconds over Smith, Mike Lupfer, Jeff Rine and Brenneman.

Sixth through 10th went to Dan Stone, Brett Schadel, Jerry Bard, Dave Brouse Jr. and Gene Knaub.

Heats went to Stone and Brenneman.

The win was the 14th of Yoder’s career at Port Royal.

The 305 sprint main was underway with six laps completed when a persistent light rain got heavy enough to knock out the rest of the night’s action.

With Zach Newlin leading, the balance of the 305 sprint main will be completed when the circuit returns to the track on June 30.

Heats for 305s were taken by Kyle Smith, Jeff Miller, Ken Duke and Nick Sweigart with Cale Reigle taking the consolation.

The econo late model main that was stymied by the rains will be run next week, May 12 when the econos return for another full program of action.

Econo heats on Saturday went to Tim Fedder and Devin Hart.

Immediately upon the completion of qualifying on Saturday, the light rains began falling, forcing a delay in getting the 410 sprint main started however after some 30 minutes of the sprinkles the cars were put on the track and both the 410 sprint and super late model mains were able to be completed amid the continuing light showers.

FROM WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY

MAY 4, 2018

AARON OTT WINS 410 SPRINT CAR FEATURE AT WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY WHILE GREG HODNETT WINS TRACK DEBUT OF AMERCIAN SPRINT CAR SERIES (ASCS)

MECHANICSBURG, PA – Aaron Ott held off a hard-charging Danny Dietrich to score the 410 Sprint car win Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway.

Meanwhile, in the first ASCS race ever held at the famed speedway, it was five-time Grove track champion Greg Hodnett starting on the pole and leading all 25 laps in night number one of the “Battle of the Groves.”

In the 410 feature, Anthony Marci started second and drove into the lead over Chad Trout and Ott, who advanced from his sixth starting spot in the opening lap.

Dietrich was quickly moving forward on a tricky racing surface from his 10th starting spot. He was into the top five by the third lap. Another pass moved Dietrich to fourth as the leaders reached lapped traffic.

With Macri in control, Ott drove by Trout and into second with 10 laps completed. Macri’s lead was around a second as they reached the half-way point.

Macri scraped the fence as he tried to lap a car. Ott drove by and into the lead. Macri’s great run came to an end with 14 laps completed when he stopped in turn four with a flat right rear tire.

“I was reeling him in,” Ott said. “He was running around the top. He was in the predicament that I was at the end of the race. You just don’t know where to go. If you’re not searching and moving around, you’re going to lose these races because there are too many good cars and too many good drivers here.”

“He might have had a tire going down. I crowded him off two, but I figured that was my only chance. I don’t know if he got sucked into the fence and that ultimately cut his tire. He’s been doing a tremendous job. We had a new car tonight and changed some things and I think we’re on to something. Circumstances certainly played in our favor.”

Ott controlled the restart. Dietrich blasted under Trout as they raced into turn three taking second with seven laps to go.

Ott reached slower cars with a few laps left allowing Dietrich to close. Dietrich drove as hard as he could trying the outside line, but fell a few car lengths short at the checkers.

“I could hear him out there,” Ott said. “I was just biding my time. I wasn’t really sure where to go in three and four. I was pretty good in one and two. At that point, it was my race to lose. Everybody knows Danny is going to do everything he can to put a show on and get the job done.”

Ott, of East Berlin, earned $4,000 for his eighth career Grove win.

Alan Krimes, Trout, and Rodney Westhafer completed the top five. James McFadden, Greg Hodnett, TJ Stutts, Lucas Wolfe and Brian Montieth rounded out the top 10.

Trout, Macri and Logan Wagner won the heat races.

In the ASCS feature, Greg Hodnett scored the most passing points during qualifying earning himself the pole.

He drove into the lead over Mark Smith, Steve Buckwalter, defending series champion Sam Hafertepe Jr. and Wayne Johnson.

Hodnett had a comfortable 1.210 second lead when he reached slower traffic with 10 laps completed. A caution flag then slowed the field.

Buckwalter briefly challenged Smith for second following the restart, but didn’t make the pass as Hodnett pulled away again.

A caution slowed the field again with 12 completed.

Hodnett once again controlled the restart and drove away. Lucas Wolfe battled Johnson for the fifth spot and then Chad Layton moved in on Wolfe.

Hodnett stretched his lead to 1.709 seconds as Wolfe made the pass of Johnson. Wolfe’s run came to an end when the inside wing panel of his sprinter came off.

Hodnett led the final laps scoring the win by 1.082.

“Anytime we can win is monumental at this point,” Hodnett said. “We’ve been struggling. These guys are the best in the business in this type of racing. We got lucky enough to start up front and take advantage of it. Everything went our way.”

Hodnett, of Spring Grove, earned $4,000 as well for his 72nd career Grove win.

Smith, Buckwalter, Hafertepe Jr., and Johnson completed the top five. Chad Layton, Jason Barney, Trey Starks, Johnny Herrera and Davie Franek rounded out the top 10.

Johnny Herrera, Mark Smith, Jason Barney, Ryan Smith and Chuck Hebing won the ASCS heat races. After the heat races, the top 30 in passing points moved on to three qualifiers. Defending series champion Sam Hafertepe Jr., Lucas Wolfe and Greg Hodnett won the qualifiers. Hebing and Seth Bergman won the B-mains.

SHULTZ HOLDS OFF FRANEK’S LATE-RACE CHARGE FOR 360 SPRINT WIN; BERNHEISEL SCORES LATE MODEL SEASON OPENER; MITCH BECOMES THREE-TIME PRO STOCK 20 CHAMPION; ZOOK MAKES LAST-LAP PASS FOR ROADRUNNER CHECKERS

SELINSGROVE, Pa. -- Selinsgrove Speedway officials waited out a few afternoon rain showers before race cars took to the smooth and fast racing surface Saturday evening and set several new track records.

Jason Shultz of Carlisle drove to his first win of the season in the 25-lap 360 sprint car feature, holding off a late-race charge by opening night winner Davie Franek of Wantage, N.J. The $2,000 victory was Shultz’s 16th career at Selinsgrove at the wheel of the Horstcraft Millworks No. 29.

In qualifying, Cody Keller of Selinsgrove set a new eight-lap track record for 360 sprint cars in 2:15.76.

Bryan Bernheisel of Jonestown shared the front row with his father Jim Bernheisel for the start of the 25-lap season opener for super late models and drove to his fifth career Selinsgrove victory worth $2,000.

Brad Mitch of McClure made his first start of the season in the pro stock division’s biggest race and became the third driver to win three A&A Auto Stores Pro Stock 20s. Mitch collected $1,000 for the win in the 17th annual race. Shaun Lawton of Bloomsburg set a new one-lap track record of 23.455.

Ryan Zook of Mifflintown made a thrilling last lap pass coming off the fourth turn for his second win of the season in the 12-lap roadrunner race.

Selinsgrove Speedway will present the highly-anticipated first-ever appearance by the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series (ASCS) National Tour at 7 p.m. Saturday, May 5, presented by Eleven Oaks Farm and Mach 1 Chassis. The race will pay $5,000 to win and $400 to start. The limited late models and pro stocks will share the racing card with the 360 sprint cars. Track gates will open at 4 p.m

Polesitter Jason Shultz bolted into the lead at the start of the 360 sprint car main event. Shultz had third-place starter Ryan Kissinger chasing him with second-place starter Kevin Nagy in the third position.

On the eighth lap, a three-car tangle involving Larry Kelleher, Mallie Shuster, and Chad Layton in turn four brought out the caution flag and regrouped the field for a lap nine restart. When the race resumed, Shultz held a commanding lead over Kissinger, third-place starter and defending champion Davie Franek, and sixth-place starter Curt Michael.

On the 15th circuit, Franek made an inside pass in turn one by Kissinger for the second position and set his sights on Shultz. In the final five laps, the leaders had to navigate their way through traffic, allowing Franek to gain real estate on Shultz.

Franek made a last-ditch effort to steal the lead and win away from Shultz on the final lap but came up just .49 of a second short at the finish line. Shultz was victorious over Franek, Kissinger, Michael, and fifth-place starter Derek Locke.

Jim Bernheisel started on the pole with his son Bryan Bernheisel sharing the front row for the drop of the green flag in the super late model opener. B. Bernheisel beat out of his father racing into the first turn for the early race lead. J. Bernheisel chased his son around the sweeping half-mile oval while defending champion and fourth-place starter Hayes Mattern raced in the third spot.

On the fifth circuit, a close battle for the third spot unfolded between Mattern and sixth-place starter Gene Knaub. The caution flag unfurled on lap six when Dan Green’s car spun in turn four. Green’s car later caught fire and rolled to a stop in the same turn on lap 23. He escaped injury.

At the halfway point, the Bernheisels raced in the first and second spots while Mattern, Knaub, and third-place starter Randy Christine held down top five positions. Mattern made several attempts to get around J. Bernheisel for second to no avail.

In the closing laps, Knaub showed some speed and advanced to second in heavy lapped traffic. At the checkered flag, B. Bernheisel was victorious by just .98 of a second over Knaub. J. Bernheisel, Mattern, and seventh-place starter Brett Schadel completed the top five.

Second-place starter Brad Mitch drove into the lead at the start of the Pro Stock 20 and never looked back. Mitch was trailed by fast qualifier Shaun Lawton for all 20 laps while third-place starter Brandon Moser held the position for the duration of the event.

The battle on the track was for the fourth and fifth positions between fourth-place starter Kyle Bachman and sixth-place starter AJ Hoffman. In the final two laps, Moser closed in on Lawton in a race for second while Mitch drove to a 1.2-second margin of victory.

Lawton finished second with Moser, Hoffman, and eighth-place starter Cory Long rounding out the top five.

The night-cap roadrunner feature produced the most exciting finish. Second-place starter Smith Cope powered into the lead and was closely chased by third-place starter Ryan Zook. At the halfway point, a duel for the lead unfolded between Smith and Zook as well as for the third position between fifth-place starter Bob Bussey and eighth-place starter Will Brunson.

On the final lap, Cope, who was seeking his first career win, slipped high in turn four and allowed Zook to make a dive to the bottom of the race track. Coming down the homestretch to the checkered flag, Zook edged out Cope by just .26 of a second for the win.

Cope settled for second followed by Bussey, Brunson, and sixth-place starter and one-time winner Keith Bissinger.

PRS 2018 – Racing through a new decade with a new attitude! Port Royal Speedway The Only Place To See Super Sprints And Super Lates Every Saturday Night

Jason Covert Bests ULMS Late Model Field Of 42 For Port Royal $3,000 Win

Greg Hodnett gets first sprints wins of season, Yoder and Powell also win stock cars

 4/28/18

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Greg Hodnett won his first sprint car feature of the season at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night, taking the $3,600 win after getting by Rick Lafferty for the lead.

In the 30 lap ULMS Chiller Thriller for super late models, Jason Covert drove by Matt Cosner for the lead and $3,000 victory.

Andrew Yoder scored the econo late model main and Bill Powell took the xtreme stock feature.

Lafferty and fellow front row starter Blane Heimbach drag raced each other through the first and second turns when the green came out in the 25-lap 410 sprint car main with Lafferty surging ahead as the pair hit turn three.

The first caution flag of the race unfurled on the fifth lap finding sixth starter Hodnett racing fourth for the restart.

Hodnett rallied around Mike Wagner for third at the new green and then went to work on Heimbach, whom he motored by on the eighth tour just before another yellow flag regrouped the field.

Hodnett blasted around Lafferty on the restart to take the lead before beginning to pull away.

Lafferty was fighting a flattening nose wing prior to losing the lead and the problem persisted later in the race as Heimbach zeroed in for second as Hodnett began working the rear of the field on the 17th lap.

Heimbach took second from Lafferty with seven tours to go but was unable to run down Hodnett, who cruised to his 51st career oval win by 4.490 seconds.

Logan Wagner, who fell backward from his third starting spot when action began, climbed back into contention during the event, taking third from Lafferty with six laps left.

Wagner was in the process of running down Heimbach at the finish.

Mike Wagner finished fourth followed by Dylan Cisney.

Sixth through 10th went to Lafferty, TJ Stutts, AJ Flick, Steve Buckwalter and Tyler Reeser.

Heats went to Hodnett and Lafferty.

A field of 42 super late models competed in the 30-lap Chiller Thriller for the United Late Model Series drivers and the main event saw no less than three leaders.

Kenny Moreland and Boom Briggs started the feature on the front row with Briggs taking the lead over Moreland and Matt Cosner on the start.

A fast caution with only one lap completed bunched the field and Cosner motored by Moreland for second on the restart.

Another restart on lap seven saw Cosner battling Briggs for control with Cosner nipping him for the lead at the line as the ninth loop was scored just before Moreland spun his mount. Fifth starter Jason Covert lined up third for the restart and quickly dispatched Briggs for the runner up position before immediately challenging Cosner for the lead.

A swoop across the low side of the first and second turns netted Covert command on the 11th tour, leaving Briggs and Cosner to duke it out for second, which they did for several laps around the halfway point.

Briggs passed Cosner for the spot on more than one occasion only to see Cosner regain the position as now Jeff Rine entered the picture along with Mike Maresca.

Both Rine and Maresca came storming to the front, racing hard together as they got by Cosner with 10 laps go to.

The pair leaned on each other repeatedly for second while still keeping their mounts under control with Rine finally securing the spot with three laps to go.

It was however Covert’s event to win and the victory was his third at the historic Port Royal over, coming by 1.625 seconds over Rine.

Maresca earned a hard fought third followed by Max Blair and Cosner.

Sixth through 10th went to Andy Haus, Mike Lupfer, Kyle Lee, Briggs and Dave Hess.

Heats went to Maresca, Moreland, Rine and Covert with twin consolations going to Hess and Trent Brenneman.

Fast time was set by Rine with a lap of 18.213 seconds.

Andrew Yoder wired the field from the pole to win the 18-lap econo late model feature over Derick Garman.

Garman lost second to Devin Hart on lap 13 but came battling back to reclaim the spot at the finish as a wild three-car race for second unfolded between he, Hart and Jeremy Ohl.

Yoder’s advantage at the line was 1.357 seconds.

Hart ended up third with Ohl fourth and Tim Fedder finishing fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Eric Irvin, Kenny Yoder, Jared Fulkroad, JR Toner and Tim Krape.

Twin heats went to Toner and Yoder.

Bill Powell led all 15 laps of the xtreme stock main to win his second race of the season.

Kevin Imes was second followed by Walt Peters, Josh Bender and Patrick McClane.

Montieth Beaths Brandon Rahmer In Non-Stop Williams Grove Sprints Nouse gets second of season in 358s

4/27/18

Mechanicsburg – “The Edge,” Brian Montieth returned to Williams Grove Speedway victory lane on Friday night for the first time since August of 2016, scoring a popular win in the 410 sprint car main.

In the 358 sprint feature, Kevin Nouse pounced on a restart with two laps to go to steal the win from Jeff Halligan.

The 25-lap 410 sprint main went non-stop from start to finish, turning in a time of 7:45.367 and the entire event proved to be an exciting one.

Steve Buckwalter started on the pole of the feature flanked by Brandon Rahmer with Montieth lining up third and Buckwalter took the lead over a close Rahmer on the start.

From the get-go, Rahmer was forced to deal with a challenging Montieth as Buckwalter set the pace.

Montieth had Rahmer passed twice during the third and fourth laps only to watch as Rahmer drove back by him to reclaim the second spot.

The trio of leaders entered the backmarkers on the eighth lap with Rahmer having gotten away from Montieth just enough to be challenging Buckwalter for control with 10 in the books.

But just that quick, Montieth again caught up to Rahmer and blasted to his inside for second on the 11th tour.

Buckwalter was pounding the high cushion as the leader with both Rahmer and Montieth bearing down for control, darting in and out of traffic when one simple bobble on the cushion cost him the lead on the 13th tour.

As Buckwalter set the car into the third corner, it pitched sideways off of the cushion and came down across the track as Montieth zoomed by along with Rahmer who ended up just squeezing between Buckwalter’s faltering mount and the inside rail in the fourth turn.

Montieth then went to work threading his way around the big half-mile with Rahmer in tow.

At the end, Montieth took the 24th win of his career at the track by 3.755 seconds over Rahmer with Buckwalter, Freddie Rahmer and TJ Stutts completing the top five.

Sixth through 10th went to Bill Balog, Anthony Macri, Lucas Wolfe, Greg Hodnett and Aaron Ott.

Heats went to Buckwalter, Brandon Rahmer and Montieth.

Jeff Halligan took the lead from Chris Frank on the second lap of the 20-lap 358 sprint main and had point leaeder Kevin Nouse on his trail in second on the fourth circuit.

Nouse and Halligan then raced the next 14 laps challenging each other for the win as Knouse pulled even with Halligan to his inside more than once only to watch as Halligan clawed back into control.

Halligan changed lanes at will around the oval as he fought to hold onto the lead, keeping Nouse guessing in every turn while also working the backmarkers.

Through it all, Halligan was able to maintain his advantage over Nouse until a lone caution flag unfurled with two laps go to and that proved to be Halligan’s undoing.

The pacesetter set a slow gait back to the green flag and that allowed Nouse to climb all over him for the lead as the pair entered the first corner.

Nouse pushed his No. 11 to Halligan’s inside as the pair blasted into the turn and then drove off for the victory, his second of the season at the track and the 19th of is oval career.

Frank was third followed by Brett Wanner and Todd Rittenhouse Jr.

Sixth through 10th went to Scott Fisher, Matt Findley, Rich Eichelberger, Brie Hershey and Dwight Leppo.

Heats went to Frank, Gregg Foster and Findley.

SMITH HOLDS OFF RAHMER IN TILLEY CLASSIC 410 SPRINT CAR THRILLER
BACHMAN & BISSINGER TAKE FIRST STOCK CAR WINS OF SEASON

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Mark Smith of Sunbury held off the hard-charging Freddie Rahmer of Salfordville for the victory in Sunday night’s suspenseful 30-lap Ray Tilley Classic for 410 sprint cars at Selinsgrove Speedway.

For Smith, driving the Mach 1 Chassis/Optilumen No. 1M, the $4,088 win was his first of the season in central Pennsylvania and fourth overall. He was the fifth different driver to receive the custom crystal cup trophy presented by the Tilley family for winning the tribute race honoring the memory of the speedway’s former four-time sprint car champion.

The win was Smith’s first in a 410 sprint car at Selinsgrove since 2003. He holds the distinction as the only driver to have won in four different classes of open wheel cars at the track, including super sportsman, 358 sprint cars, 360 sprint cars, and 410 sprint cars.

Greg Hodnett of York was the night’s Fast Tees Fast Qualifier with a lap time of 15.849 (120 MPH average), nearly eclipsing Daryn Pittman’s 2011 track record of 15.810, on the track’s new red clay surface.

Kyle Bachman of Selinsgrove inherited the lead from opening night winner Tommy Slanker of York and went on to win the 15-lap pro stock main event.

Keith Bissinger of Orangeville scored his first win of the season in the 12-lap roadrunner feature by holding off last week’s winner Ryan Zook of Mifflintown.

Selinsgrove Speedway is back in action at 7 p.m. this Saturday, April 28, with the 360 sprint cars, super late models, pro stocks in the A&A Auto Stores Pro Stock 20, and roadrunners. Pit gates will open at 4 p.m. with grandstand gates at 5 p.m.

Polesitter Gerard McIntyre pulled into the lead at the start of the 410 sprint car feature and was chased by second-place starter TJ Stutts until third-place starter Steve Buckwalter advanced to second entering turn three.

On lap four, Buckwalter’s car blew a tire on the frontstretch, causing the Royersford driver to get sideways in turn one. When his car rolled over it was struck by Jason Shultz’s sprinter. Both drivers escaped injury.

When the race resumed on lap five, McIntyre held a solid lead over fifth-place starter Mark Smith, Stutts, and fourth-place starter Freddie Rahmer. The race was slowed again on lap 10 when Blane Heimbach’s car rolled to a stop on the backstretch with a flat tire. Heimbach rejoined the field.

Smith made the winning pass using the inside lane entering turn one on the lap 11 restart. A lap later Rahmer moved into second after getting by McIntyre in turn 3. On the 14th lap, Heimbach’s car stopped on the frontstretch with mechanical issues.

At the halfway point, an intense multi-car battle unfolded for positions in the top five between Stutts, Hodnett, McIntyre, and 12th place starter Brock Zearfoss. When Zearfoss drove to the outside in turns three and four his car got sideways and struck the outside guardrail, ending his drive to the front and chances of a three-win weekend.

The final 10 laps saw Smith set the pace in front of Rahmer, Stutts, Hodnett and ninth-place starter Lucas Wolfe. In the closing laps, the leaders began to encounter slower traffic, allowing Rahmer to reel in Smith. At the checkered flag, Smith was victorious by .51 of a second in a close finish with Rahmer. Stutts, Hodnett, and Wolfe rounded out the top five.

In the season’s second pro stock feature, polesitter Tommy Slanker powered into the early lead over fourth-place starter AJ Hoffman and second-place starter Brandon Moser. On the foreboding 13th circuit, misfortune struck Slanker’s racer and allowed by fourth-place starter AJ Hoffman to lead the next lap.

With two laps remaining, third-place starter Kyle Bachman made an inside pass by Hoffman on the frontstretch to take the lead. Bachman went on to win the race by just .57 of a second over Moser, Slanker, Andrew Shoop, and Shaun Lawton.

Defending co-champion Will Brunson started on the pole in the roadrunner feature and held off co-champion and sixth-place starter Keith Bissinger for the first five laps before Bissinger took command of the field during a three-wide race in turn two on the sixth circuit.

While Bissinger set the pace, third-place starter Ryan Zook and Brunson remained in striking distance. At the checkered flag, Bissinger was victorious by the slimmest of margins over Zook, Brunson, Smith Cope, and Jake Jones.

Zearfoss Outguns Hodnett To Win Port Royal Sprints, Wolfe Wins URC Nail Biter Kyle Smith claims 305s

 4/21/18

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Over 90 total sprint cars filled the pits at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night for Open Wheel Madness featuring action for the 410 sprints, URC Sprints and the 305 sprint cars.

Winners on the night were Brock Zearfoss in 410s, Kyle Smith in 305s and Lucas Wolfe in URC for what was a photo finish.

Greg Hodnett and Brock Zearfoss earned the front row for the 25-lap 410 sprint car main event and when the green flag came out, the pair immediately battled for control in the first corner.

Hodnett entered high in the turn but Zearfoss entered even higher and although Hodnett beat him to the center of the corner, Zearfoss beat him off of the turn with a sweep around the outside.

Zearfoss had Hodnett dogging as he entered the rear of the field on the seventh tour and as he worked traffic, slowly but surely Hodnett seemed to be closing the leader’s advantage.

With eight laps to go, Hodnett had caught Zearfoss for the lead as a three-car battle for third raged between Steve Buckwalter, Logan Wagner and Lucas Wolfe.

And with five to go, the race for third had caught the race for the lead and the finish was setting up to be a wild one when the only caution of the race came out with just three laps to go.

The restart proved anticlimactic as Zearfoss jetted away to pick up the $4,000 win over Hodnett by 1.705 seconds.

However the race for third battled to the finish with both Wolfe and Wagner getting by Buckwalter for the spot while Dylan Cisney raced home fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Buckwalter, TJ Stutts, Gerard McIntyre Jr., Mike Wagner and Anthony Macri.

Heats went to Cisney, Buckwalter and McIntyre Jr.

The 25-lap URC main saw polesitter Lucas Wolfe blast into the lead over Josh Weller when action began in what would turn out to be a non-stop affair that came right down to the wire.

Trey Starks started third in the field and got by Weller for second on the third circuit before giving chase of leader Wolfe.

Starks seemed stagnant for a while but eventually he was able to narrow the leader’s advantage as Wolfe worked through heavy lapped traffic.

Meanwhile, fifth starter Mark Smith had driven up to third with 10 laps to go as he began to set a blistering pace around the oval.

It took six laps to do it but Smith caught Starks for second and drove by for the spot with four to go before driving down the leader.

And over the final two laps, Smith and Wolfe exchanged the lead at least six times with Wolfe getting the better of Smith every time to reclaim control.

Smith’s last effort came in the third and fourth turns as the pair headed for the checkers as he blasted across the middle of the turns and put himself at the front, taking Wolfe’s line away.

At that point, Wolfe turned the car off the cushion and raced up the inside of Smith as the pair bore down on the finish line in a drag race to the finish.

The finish was so close that most in attendance had to wait for a check of the electronic timing system to determine who had actually taken the victory.

In the end, Wolfe scored the victory by .004 seconds, which was a margin that was nearly impossible to detect with the naked eye.

Trey Starks settled for third followed by Greg Hodnett and Brock Zearfoss.

Sixth through 10th went to Josh Weller, Ryan Kissinger, Jason Shultz, Eric Parker and Bill Balog.

Heats went to Zearfoss, Starks and Smith with the consolation race going to Derek Locke.

Dylan Shatzer led the first four laps of the 18-lap 305 sprint main before Christian Rumsey drove by for the lead.

A restart with seven laps completed placed fifth starter Kyle Smith on Rumsey’s tail and Smith took the lead from Rumsey in the first and second turns when action resumed.

Jeff Miller motored into second with two laps to go but ran out of time to challenge Smith for the win.

Darren Miller was third followed by Rumsey and Shatzer.

Sixth through 10th went to Zach Newlin, Ken Duke Jr., Jonathan Jones, Drew Ritchey and Kassidy Kreitz.

Heats were taken by Shatzer, Darren Miller, Jeff Miller and Smith with Stephanie Dodson taking the consolation race.

DANNY DIETRICH RETURNS HOME FOR SECOND WIN OF THE SEASON AT THE FABULOUS LINCOLN SPEEDWAY;

Dave Brown registers first career 358 sprint win, Shaun Jones wires the field in non-stop 358 late model feature

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 4/21/2018 – “It’s good to be back home here at Lincoln.”

So said Gettysburg’s Danny Dietrich after wiring the field, leading all 25 laps en route to his second win of the season at the Fabulous Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

Dietrich started outside the polesitter Glenndon Forsythe for the start of the 25-lap $3,500-to-win 410 Sprint feature, grabbed the lead at the drop of the green, and withstood the challenges of last week’s feature winner Freddie Rahmer for 24 laps to pick up his 40th career win at the Pigeon Hills oval, placing him in a tie with Lance Dewease for eighth all time.

“It feels good to come down here and get a win,” said Dietrich following his traditional wing-dance in victory lane. “We’ve been having trouble with getting to tracks that are (racey) to race on, and Lincoln’s always good…that’s why we decided to come here tonight.”

“It’s close to home,” Dietrich quickly added. “We’re kind of tired of the hour and a half drive in a sense and it’s gets kind of boring and lonely on the way home when you don’t run good.”

A caution on the third lap for a Zach Eucalano spin put third-starting Rahmer and fourth-starting Alan Krimes right behind him.

“The format they got is rewarding, said Dietrich on Lincoln’s qualifying format that places emphasis on the heat races as they line-up the feature field “heads-up from there finish. “I think it’s putting on a hell-of-a show for the fans in the heat races…I talked to Alan last year about doing this format and I think it pays off.”

“I was a little worried the first couple of laps in the heat race,” Dietrich reflected. “I wasn’t sure I could find a hole to get too but once everybody got single file I could pick and choose.”

Dietrich pulled away with a clear track in front of him and entered lapped traffic by the seventh lap.

Seventh-starting Brian Montieth had started to work his way to the front and passed Krimes for third in lapped traffic on the ninth lap.

“You’ve got to race pretty good through the feature to hold off the other guys that are fast up front,” said Dietrich. “I think it puts on a good show for everybody…that’s what is great about this format.”

“You get rewarded. But everybody is getting rewarded.”

At the halfway mark Tyler Ross encountered problems exiting the fourth turn, eventually flipping in the second turn to bring out the red flag with 12 laps officially in the books. Ross was okay.

So with 13 laps to go, Dietrich once again had a clear track ahead of him, with Rahmer, Montieth, and Krimes right behind.

And just as before, Dietrich controlled the restart and put daylight between himself and the field as they entered lapped traffic again with eight laps to go.

Montieth and Rahmer began battling for the runner-up spot with two laps to go, giving Dietrich some breathing room the final laps and took the checkered .93-seconds ahead for his third overall win of 2018.

“I like the time trial shows,” said Dietrich on his plans moving forward in 2018. “I like the shows that are rewarding for the heat races…we’re going to bounce around like today where we changed where we were going, this is going to happen a little more often.

“We’re going to Mansfield (OH) next weekend, but if Friday don’t go well, we’ll probably see you again next Saturday. We hope to be there for the big dance on Saturday (Mansfield Motor Speedway for the $100,000-to-win Sprint Car World Championship).

Rahmer held off Montieth in the battle for second, with Montieth settling for third, Krimes fourth, and ninth-starting Jim Siegel fifth.

Completing the top-10 were Forsythe, Chris Knopp, Tim Glatfelter, Scott Fisher, and 13th-starting Brandon Rahmer.

Heats for the 22 410 Sprinters on hand were won by Forsythe, Dietrich, and Rahmer.

Former Mid-Atlantic 305 Sprint Series standout, Dave Brown of Aston (PA) picked up his first career 358 Sprint Series win at Lincoln.

Brown followed polesitter Dalton Dietrich from his outside front row starting spot at the drop of the green of the 20-lap feature.

Brown slipped by Dietrich for the lead on the seventh lap and then held off Friday night Trail-Way Speedway winner Cody Fletcher in a one-lap dash to the checkered to register his inaugural 358 sprint victory.

Dietrich settled for third, Trey Hivner fourth, and Chase Dietz fifth.

Rounding out the top-10 were Troy Wagaman Jr., Jeff Halligan, Brie Hershey, Kody Hartlaub, and Kenny Kuhn.

Heats for the 22 358 Sprinters on hand were won by Halligan, Dylan Norris, and Brent Shearer.

Shaun Jones grabbed the lead from his pole starting position at the drop of the green of the 358 Late Model feature and drove non-stop for 5 minutes 57.58 seconds to take the checkered for the 2.47-second win over third starting Randy Christine, Jr.

Jones literally held off Christine and fifth-starting Wes Bonebrake the entire 20-lap distance.

Ninth-starting Gene Knaub and seventh-starting Devin Frey rounded out the top-five.

Completing the top-10 were 11th-starting Alan Sagi, Craig Wagaman, Bobby Beard, Bruce Kane, and Bernie Beard.

Heats for the 21 358 Late Models on hand were won by Bonebrake, Christine, and Sagi.

Lincoln Speedway is back in action next Saturday night, April 28st, with the running of the 15TH ANNUAL WELDON STERNER MEMORIAL for 410 Sprints (33 Laps/$6,900 to win), plus 358 Sprints and Street Stocks.

Zearfoss And Dietz Win Williams Grove Sprint Mains

4/20/18

Mechanicsburg – Brock Zearfoss of Jonestown pickeup his first win of the season Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway, claiming $3,600 in the 410 sprint car feature while Chase Dietz picked up the win in the 358 sprint main event.

Invader Bill Balog of Hartford, Wisconsin, earned the pole for the 25-lap main for the 410 sprints and zoomed into command when action began.

Balog proved untouchable as the early leader, holding off Rick Lafferty and Zearfoss while running the cushion.

Sixth starter Zearfoss would take second from Lafferty on the sixth tour and begin his pursuit of the leader.

While Balog pounded the cushion, Zearfoss experimented with both the low side and the high groove as he ran down the leader.

However Balog was up to the challenge under the long green flag run that lasted until lap 20, keeping Zearfoss at bay and preventing him from getting just close enough to take a jab at the lead while holding an advantage of just over or under a half second, dependent on the lap.

But when the caution flag unfurled with five laps to go, the advantage was gone adn the restart proved to be Balog’s undoing.

When action resumed, Zearfoss threw down a deep dive into the first turn as Balog set the car in on the cushion and with that, the race had a new pacesetter.

Zearfoss came up off of the second corner with the lead after the sweeping move before driving to an advantage of 3.690 seconds at the checkers.

“The main this was to go where he wasn’t,” Zearfoss said of his strategy for the lap 20 restart.

“I didn’t know if I was gonna’ get him if we didn’t have that caution.”

“I kinda’ searched the bottom there at the beginning and knew I had something,” he said.

The win was the fourth of Zearfoss’ career at Williams Grove Speedway.

After losing the lead, Balog lost second to Freddie Rahmer on the 22nd lap when Rahmer streaked underneath but Balog returned the favor in the first corner to reclaim the spot for the finish.

Rahmer was third followed by Lafferty and Brian Montieth.

Sixth through 10th went to Lucas Wolfe, Greg Hodnett, Danny Dietrich, TJ Stutts and Troy Fraker.

Twin heats went to Balog and Lafferty.

Dietz led all 20 laps of the 358 sprint main after starting on the pole.

But that’s not to say it was an easy win.

After starting fourth in the field, one time winner Kevin Nouse used a restart with two laps to go to blast from third to challenge for the win.

After wafting around Rich Eichelberger for second on the restart he immediately closed on Dietz as the pair shot down the backchute.

Nouse was able to shoot to Dietz’s inside as the pair raced through the third corner headed for the white flag but Dietz held firm on the outside and clawed his way back into control at the line.

Nouse set Dietz up for another identical move on the final lap but this time Dietz was ready and instead of entering on the cushion, Dietz set the car into the turn a lane lower, fowling up Nouse’s entry and preserving his sixth career win at the oval.

Following Dietz and Nouse across the line was Eichelberger, Jeff Halligan and Matt Findlay.

Sixth rhrough 10th went to Brett Wanner, Glenndon Forsythe, Todd Rittenhouse Jr., Nyle Berkes and Brie Hershey.

Twin heats went to Dietz and Eichelberger.

Dewease Nabs Port Royal Kauffman Classic Over All Stars, Rine Starts Moon Shine Late Model Series With Win

 4/14/18

PORT ROYAL, Pa. –Lance Dewease of Fayetteville made it back-to-back victories in the Port Royal Speedway Keith Kauffman Classic for the All Stars Sprint Cars on Saturday night, scoring $5,000 for the victory over the touring invaders.

For Dewease, at the wheel of the Kreitz No. 69K, the win marked his fifth in a row in All Star competition at Port Royal, dating back to September 10, 2016.

The win was also the 37th of Dewease’s career while racing with the All Stars as a series, tying him with Steve Kinser, Doug Wolfgang and Danny Lasoski on the All Stars all time win list.

Also at the track on Saturday night, in the 25-lap 2018 kickoff of the Moon Shine Camo Rt. 35 Dirt Late Model Challenge Series, Jeff Rine of Danville dominated to pick up the $2,200 payday which was his second of the year at the track.

The initial start of the 30-lap Kauffman Classic for sprint cars was red flagged when Dave Blaney spun in the third turn, collecting TJ Stutts, who flipped.

Prior to the stoppage, polesitter Steve Buckwalter had taken the lead.

On the ensuring restart, second starter Anthony Macri got the best of Buckwalter and took control.

Macri entered the backmarkers on the seventh tour with Buckwalter, Aaron Reutzel, Greg Hodnett and Dewease in tow.

Reutzel was blasting the top around the speedway and motored into second with nine away at the same time as Dewease began advancing, taking fourth from Hodnett on the 10th circuit.

A lap later and Dewease was up to third while Reutzel worked on Macri for the lead, which he took by .02 seconds at the line as the pair drag raced to the line on the 12th lap.

And then just as Dewease was along side Macri for second working on lap 13, Trey Starks came up with a flat right rear tire in the first turn, causing the caution flag to unfurl.

Reutzel blasted away on the restart as Dewease again worked on Macri for second but before he could get the spot, Dave Blaney spun in the first turn, forcing another yellow flag that turned red for refueling.

The stoppage and a chance to work on the car was all that Dewease’s team needed as he motored by Macri for second at the new green before giving chase of Reutzel.

Around the high side went Reutzel lap after lap as Dewease chugged the low line and worked his way up on to the leader with 10 laps to go.

With nine laps remaining, Dewease blasted the low line into the third turn and came up off of the fourth corner with the lead.

However Reutzel stayed close enough as the leaders worked traffic to be sure and keep Dewease honest to the finish.

The winning margin was 2.149 seconds for Dewease.

“If it wasn’t for the red, Aaron was gonna’ win that race,” said Dewease in victory lane.

“He was the best car at that point.”

Macri rode home third followed by Buckwalter and Hodnett.

Sixth through 10th went to Mike Wagner, Dylan Cisney, 20th starter Ryan Smith, Daryn Pittman and Ryan Taylor.

Heats for the 47 cars in action went to Hodnett, Cale Conley, Cisney, Wagner and Starks.

Twin dashes went to Buckwalter and Macri with Cole Duncan taking the C Main and Logan Wagner taking the B Main.

Fast time was set by Reutzel with a lap of 16.473 seconds.

Rine drew the second spot to start the Moon Shine Camo Rt. 35 Series main event and would lead all 25 laps of the event.

Only one caution flag, on the 10th tour, slowed his pace when Meade Hahn spun in the first corner.

Polesitter Gene Knaub chased Rine until lap 12 when Andy Haus got by for second.

Haus was unable to close on the leader however as Rine went on to post a 3.978 second victory.

The win was his 20th at the oval, tying him with Jim Nave on the oval all time late model win list.

Knaub rode home third followed by Dylan Yoder and Alex Feree.

Sixth through 10th went to Jason Schmidt, Colton Flinner, Matt Lux, Trent Brenneman and Mike Lupfer.

Heats went to Feree, Brenneman and Rine with 29 cars in action.

Steve Wilbur tops field in 358 sprint action while Korey Sites rolls to street stock win

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 4/14/2018 – Freddie Rahmer was the class of the field Saturday night as he chased down 2-time 2018 winner Brian Montieth and held off the six-time defending 2017 track champ en route to his first win of 2018 in the 25-lap 410 sprint feature at the Fabulous Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

“I’ll tell ya, this here really builds a lot of confidence to get this (win) out of the way,” said Rahmer on his first win of 2018 in victory lane. “I haven’t been doing a good job, and we’ve been sneaking in a few good runs”

“I was really good at the beginning of the race and I was good down here (turns 1 and 2),” said Rahmer on holding off Montieth in the closing laps. “But I knew down here (turns 3 and 4) I wasn’t getting through 3 so good so I knew Brian (Montieth) was going to be there…we still won so it don’t matter!”

Polesitter Dan Shetler grabbed the lead at the drop of the green with outside front row starter Montieth right behind. Then just as they got to lapped traffic on the ninth lap Montieth made his move to get around Shetler for the lead.

But right behind him was seventh-starting Freddie Rahmer who was quickly moving to the front and joined Montieth in getting around Shetler the same lap to move into second.

It was clear Rahmer was not content to follow Montieth. He drove around the Phoenixville racer the very next lap and had the lead with only nine laps in the books.

A new qualifying format this season is in effect that has featuring starting positions determined directly from the finish of their respective heat races. The “heads-up” feature line up put Montieth on the front row (2nd) after winning the second heat while Rahmer was relegated to inside the fourth row (7th) due to his second place finish in the first heat.

“With this new (qualifying) format, one position in a heat race could mean the difference between winning or running fifth,” said Rahmer on having to chase down Montieth in the feature. “With me starting seventh, and (Montieth) starting second I wasn’t going to give up…we had a good race car with a great start and it went nice.”

After a less than stellar start to the 2018 racing season, Rahmer was strong and was in the lead. But he now had to hold off Montieth for 16 laps.

It was quickly apparent that Rahmer had found his stride and was slowly pulling away in lapped traffic. But it wasn’t going to be that easy for Rahmer.

A TJ DeHaven flip in the first and second turns of the 15th lap put Montieth and fifth-starting Cory Haas on Rahmer’s bumper for the restart with a clear track ahead.

Rahmer weathered the initial challenges on the restart, only to have the red flag wave again, this time on the 18th lap for Dwayne Gutshall who flipped in turn 2. Now two-time track champ Alan Krimes joined the battle as he was charging up to the front from his eighth starting position and was in fourth place behind Montieth and Haas.

But Rahmer didn’t miss a beat on the restart and again pulled away. An ensuing battle between Montieth, Haas, and Krimes for 2nd through fourth place over the final five laps allowed Rahmer some breathing room as the laps wound down.

With two laps to go Montieth was clear of that battle and was able to focus on the leader. Montieth closed the gap with two laps to go and on the final lap was close enough heading up the backstretch to make a final dive to the inside of the final turns to the checkered.

But Montieth, the one they call “The Edge”, was a little dull this night as Rahmer calmly drove off the fourth turn strong to take the checkered .84-seconds ahead for his first 2018 Lincoln win of the season.

“He (Freddie) did really good,” said his father Fred in victory lane. “To beat Brian here…he’s a really good racer.

“We’ll just keep plugging away. This is going to be good for Freddy’s confidence. He’s been dragging his butt around a little bit so this will definitely help.”

Montieth settled for second, with Krimes, Haas, and fifth-starting Tyler Ross finishing third through fifth respectively.

“We really appreciate all Lincoln does and we wanted to support them tonight, said the winner. “I really want to thank all those that came out to watch us here and we’re looking forward to the next one (race).”

Completing the top-10 were Jim Siegel (started 10th), Kyle Moody (started 6th), Glenndon Forsythe (started 14th), Chad Trout (started 13th), and Brandon Rahmer (started 15th).

And then later his father added, “I wanted to dedicate this win to “Ozzy”. He was with Manheim Auto Auction for a lot of years and he just passed away. He was a great guy and will definitely be missed.”

“Heats for the 24 410 Sprinters on hand were won by Shetler, Montieth, and Cole Young.

Polesitter Steve Wilbur withstood a race-long challenge from Chase Dietz to pick up his first win of the year in the 20-lap 358 sprint feature.

Wilbur grabbed the lead at the outset with third-starting Ashley Cappetta and polesitter Kenny Kuhn in tow.

Seventh-starting Dietz was methodically working his way to the front and passed fifth-starting Trey Hivner for third place on the sixth lap. Dietz finally got by a strong Cappetta car for second place on the eighth lap and set his sights on race-long leader Wilbur.

Four separate cautions over the 2nd half of the race gave Dietz a chance to pass Wilbur for the lead, but, Wilbur maintained his line on each restart and weathered the storm to take the checkered .66-seconds ahead of Dietz for his second career win at Lincoln Speedway.

Cappetta settled for a hard-fought third place finish, with ninth-starting Jeff Halligan fourth, and eighth-starting Steven Drevicki fifth.

Completing the top-10 were sixth-starting Troy Wagaman, Jr., outside front row starter Kenny Kuhn, fourth-starting Brie Hershey, 10th-starting Steve Owings, and 13th-starting Chris Arnold.

Heats for the 26 358 Sprinters on hand were won by Owings, Chase Dietz, and Tracey, with Alyson Dietz winning the consolation.

Fourth-starting Korey Sites was in a league of his own in the 20-lap street stock feature as he drove from his fourth-starting spot to chase down polesitter Brian Walls by the second lap and made his race-winning pass on the fourth lap.

Sites comfortably led the rest of the way to take the checkered 3 seconds ahead of sixth-starting Randy Zechman for the win.

Ryan Smith settled for third, Josh Bloom fourth, Joey Hoffer fifth, Chad Smith sixth, Brad Bingaman seventh, hard-charger Wayne Dutterer eighth, and Bobby Meixsell ninth.

Heats for the 21 Street Stocks on hand were won by Jimmy Combs, Adams, Bobby Meixsell.

Lincoln Speedway is back in action next Saturday night, April 21st at 7 PM, for McSHERRYSTOWN MOOSE LODGE #720 NIGHT on AUTO RACING CLUB OF HAGERSTOWN (ARCH) NIGHT with the 410 Sprint and 358 Sprint regulars being joined by the 358 Late Models.

FROM WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY

APRIL 13, 2018

LANCE DEWEASE COMES FROM 13TH TO WIN TOMMY HINNERSHITZ MEMORIAL AT WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY

MECHANICSBURG, Pa. – Lance Dewease came from the 13th starting spot to win the Tommy Hinnershitz Memorial for the Sprint cars Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway.

For Dewease, of Fayetteville, his 88th career Grove win was worth $5,000 and it came against Tony Stewart’s All Star Circuit of Champions.

“We could put the car anywhere on the race track,” Dewease said. “We were really good in our heat race, but couldn’t show it. I’m fortunate to be involved with this deal. We’re having fun. That’s what it’s all about. They work hard at this.”

Brock Zearfoss started on the pole and took the lead on the opening lap of the 30-lap main event over six-time All Star Champion Chad Kemenah, who started second, and fourth starter Danny Dietrich.

Zearfoss built a big lead in the first five laps as Kemenah kept Dietrich at bay. Meanwhile, Dewease was racing forward from his 13th starting spot. He took sixth from Anthony Macri with seven laps completed as Zearfoss began lapping slower cars.

Dewease continued his march forward taking fifth from Mark Smith with 10 laps completed. Zearfoss continued to work traffic as Kemenah and Dietrich closed.

Also closing was Dewease as he took fourth from Chad Trout. Dietrich drove under Kemenah in turn two taking over second in lapped traffic. Zearfoss had one lapped car between himself and Dietrich. Dewease drove by Kemenah and into third by the half-way point.

Zearfoss worked the cushion as Dietrich and Dewease were on the bottom behind a lapped car. Dewease tried the top in turn one, but couldn’t make the pass. Dietrich went high in turn three to maintain the spot. They continued their battle for second for another lap racing close. Dietrich slipped high in turn two and Dewease drove by with 10 laps to go.

Zearfoss was racing the bottom now in lapped traffic with Dewease closing. Dewease used the middle groove to pass a slower car and was under Zearfoss in turn four, but Zearfoss led the lap. Dewease made the winning pass in turn two on lap 24.

“I didn’t even know I was leading,” Dewease said. “I was trying to pass every car I got to as quick as possible. They gave me the five to go and I was leading and I knew I had to slow down because I knew there wasn’t much rubber left on these tires.”

Dewease was in control, but the caution flew with two laps to go when Alan Krimes stopped in turn four. The caution flew again on the restart for Tim Shaffer.

Dewease controlled the restart again scoring his 88th career Grove win over Zearfoss, Dietrich, Trout, and Kemenah. Anthony Macri, Greg Hodnett, Jac Haudenschild, Mark Smith and Freddie Rahmer rounded out the top 10.

Jac Haudenschild set quick time over the 46-car field with a lap of 17.456. Paul McMahan, Chad Trout, Cory Haas, Mark Smith and Anthony Macri won the heat races. Bill Balog won the C-main. Brock Zearfoss came from the rear to win the first dash and Chad Kemenah won the second. Trey Starks won the B-main.

In the 20-lap main event for the PASS 305 Sprints, Austin Bishop took the early lead from Drew Ritchey and John Scarborough. Former PASS champion Ken Duke Jr. took third from Scarborough with three laps completed.

Bishop held a comfortable lead over Ritchey and Duke Jr. as they reached the half-way point and slower traffic.

Bishop got through traffic without much trouble scoring the win over Ritchey, Duke Jr., Zach Newlin and Darren Miller. The non-stop time was 7:15.72. Dave Grube, Scott Lutz, Jaremi Hanson, Kyle Smith and Kyle Ganoe rounded out the top 10.

Scott Lutz, John Scarborough and Zach Newlin won the heat races.

410 Sprint Car Feature Finish, 30 Laps: 1. Lance Dewease; 2. Brock Zearfoss; 3. Danny Dietrich; 4. Chad Trout; 5. Chad Kemenah; 6. Anthony Macri; 7. Greg Hodnett; 8. Jac Haudenschild; 9.

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY NAMES KYLE ALEXANDER TRACK CO-ANNOUNCER

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Selinsgrove Speedway named Kyle Alexander of Sunbury as the track’s co-announcer alongside long-time announcer and general manager Steve Inch of Lewisburg for the 2018 racing season.

Entering his third season as the voice of Selinsgrove Raceway Park, the one-fifth mile kart track located inside of Selinsgrove’s half-mile oval, Alexander will get the opportunity to call the action on the Superspeedway of Dirt Track Racing this year as well.

At 25 years old, Alexander is no stranger to lending his voice to local broadcasts. Before he graduated from Shikellamy Area High School in 2011, he was behind a microphone and pushing buttons during live radio broadcasts of sporting events. That experience eventually led to radio opportunities doing nights, afternoons, and a morning show.

Alexander also filled in as Inch’s co-host on the popular motorsports radio show “The Inside Lane” on the former ESPN 92.3 in 2014 and 2015.

In September of last year, Alexander joined Sunbury Broadcasting Co. as the midday jockey on 94KX and Program Director.

For the past two seasons, Mike Batz of Lebanon was the speedway’s co-announcer. Batz wanted to focus more of his efforts on his family’s Linda’s Speedway this year.

“Mike did a great job for us the last two seasons and we wish him all the best,” said Inch. “Kyle is excited about his new opportunity at the track where he grew up going to the races.”

Selinsgrove Speedway’s 2018 season opener will be this Saturday, April 14, at 6 p.m. featuring the 360 sprint cars, limited late models, pro stocks, roadrunners, and a special appearance by the Penn Mar Vintage Race Car Club. Pit gates will open at 3 p.m. with grandstand gates at 4 p.m.

PRS 2018 – Racing through a new decade with a new attitude!
Port Royal Speedway
The Only Place To See Super Sprints And Super Lates Every Saturday Night

Port Royal Has All Stars Kauffman Classic & Moon Shine Camo Series Kickoff Sat.
Stellar fields expected for both high profile events!

4/8/18

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Port Royal Speedway will honor its most successful driver in history coming up Saturday night, April 14 when Tony Stewart’s Arctic Cat All Stars Circuit of Champions Sprints invade for the annual Keith Kauffman Classic.

The Kauffman Classic will go 30 laps in distance and pay $5,000 to the winner.

Also on the card will be the kickoff of the 2018 Moon Shine Camo Rt. 35 Dirt Late Model Challenge Series, contested between both Port Royal and Selinsgrove Speedways.

The Moon Shine Camo Series kickoff will go 25 laps in distance and pay $2,200 to win.

Adult general admission for the show is set at $22 with students ages 12 – 18 admitted for $10.

All gates will open at 3 pm.

The event is presented by Locust Grove Retirement.

Kauffman, the Port Royal oval’s most prolific winner, owns a list-topping 129 career sprint car wins at the historic track along with a pair of late model victories.

His last Port Royal win occurred on June 11, 2011 after taking his first back in 1977. The veteran retired in 2013.

Invader Dale Blaney of Hartford, Ohio, won the inaugural Kauffman Classic in 2016 while Lance Dewease scored the 2017 version.

A deep field of All Stars is expected to enter the event as the circuit recently released a roster of 20 drivers that are expected to follow the series in 2018.

On hand will be time-tested, well-traveled, highly successful veterans such as Jac Haudenschild, Joey Saldana, Dave Blaney, Chad Kemenah and Paul McMahan.

And in fact, Blaney just scored at the track for his first win of the season anywhere in an unsanctioned event on April 7, to tune up for the big Kauffman Classic.

Other All Stars expected to compete include young guns like Parker Price-Miller, Max McGhee, Carson Macedo, Cale Conley, Aaron Reutzel and more.

With a total purse worth more than $12,000 up for grabs, the Moon Shine Camo Rt. 35 Series kickoff for late models is sure to attract all the biggest stars from across the region as the series boosts an increased total event purse payout this season.

Drivers will get $225 just to start the main event.

Several thousand additional dollars have been pumped into the event purses and series-end point payout for the 2018 version of the six-race series conducted between Port Royal and Selinsgrove Speedways.

The series is comprised of six races with three being held at each speedway during the season.

Williams Grove To Honor Acclaimed Wheeler Hinnershitz With Memorial Friday All Stars to help honor famed driver that won first-ever Williams Grove race in 1939

4/8/18

Mechanicsburg – When Williams Grove Speedway opens its gates on Friday night, April 13 to a contingent of All Stars and Pennsylvania Posse sprint car stars, it will do so in honor of one of the most recognizable names in motorsports history dating back to the 1930s.

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

Hinnershitz won the race in what was called a “hard and heady” event to best the famed Joie Chitwood.

Hinnershitz’s death in 1999 left behind an auto-racing legacy worthy of note by any standards.

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

He had garnered 103 total AAA/USAC feature wins with 19 taking place at Williams Grove.

Hinnershitz set 43 AAA track records during his tenure and would compete in three Indianapolis 500s.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Deep Field Of All Stars To Challenge Posse In Friday Williams Grove Tommy Memorial Locals hope to keep 32 & 0 record against invaders intact in honor of Hinnershitz

4/8/18

Mechanicsburg – Williams Grove Speedway will present the annual Tommy Hinnershitz Memorial coming up Friday, April 13 at 7:30 pm and for the first time in history, the special event will be sanctioned by a touring group.

The Arctic Cat All Stars Circuit of Champions Sprints will invade to compete for the $5,000 top prize and they will bring with them a deep contingent of competitors as the circuit recently announced a list of 20 touring drivers who will follow the series in 2018.

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

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

The PASS/IMCA 305 sprints are also on the special All Stars Tommy racing card.

Tommy Hinnershitz, known as “The Flying Dutchman,” from Oley, Pennsylvania, holds the distinction of winning the first ever race held at historic Williams Grove Speedway back on May 21, 1939.

After a 30-year career, spanning 1930-1960, Hinnershitz retired from the sport but stayed in touch with his legacy and motorsports until the time of his death in 1999.

And Williams Grove will honor his legacy with Friday’s Tommy Hinnershitz Memorial, pitting the All Stars traverlers against the Pennsylvania Posse for the first time this season.

Over the years since the All Stars first appeared at Williams Grove back in 1970, no bonafide touring All Star has ever won an All Stars race at Williams Grove Speedway.

Coming into 2018, the Pennsylvania Posse holds a perfect 32 and 0 record against the All Stars.

And they want to keep that record alive in the Tommy Memorial but a talent-laden field will be pulling pitside to challenge the Posse.

Expected to enter the event are time-tested, well-traveled, highly successful veterans such as Jac Haudenschild, Joey Saldana, Dave Blaney, Chad Kemenah and Paul McMahan.

And with a supporting All Stars cast of young guns like Parker Price-Miller, Max McGhee, Carson Macedo, Cale Conley and Aaron Reutzel among others, 2018 may just prove to be the season of the Possee’s undoing at Williams Grove.

Lance Dewease is the defending winner of the Tommy race and a two-time winner of the event since it took the Tommy name in 2007. Prior to that time the race was known as the Early Bird Championship, begun in 1983.

TYLER ESH SCORES CAREER FIRST 410 SPRINT WIN AT THE FABULOUS LINCOLN SPEEDWAY;

Brent Shearer and Bob Gutshall score wins in 358 sprint and wingless super sportsman action

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 4/7/2018 – 26 year old Tyler Esh of New Providence led all 25 laps from his pole position and held off 2-time 2018 winner Brian Montieth to pick up his first career 410 Sprint win at the Fabulous Lincoln Speedway Saturday afternoon.

Picking up a first-time win anywhere is special. For Esh, to pick up his inaugural win was even more special when considering he had six-time Lincoln Champ, and two-time 2018 winner Brian Montieth chasing him in a three-lap shootout to the checkers.

“With three (laps) to go I never prayed so hard in a race car in all my life,” said Esh following his first-ever wing-dance for winning the feature. “Just three more laps was all I needed…I saw him trying to come underneath me the last three laps and I was just hoping not to make a mistake and pull back around him every time and it worked out.”

And work out it did.

Esh started on the pole and grabbed the lead at the drop of the green with third-starting Glenndon Forsythe and outside frontrow starter Scott Fisher following. Friday night Williams Grove winner Cory Haas came charging from his sixth starting spot to grab third on the second lap and eventually got by Forsythe for the runner-up spot on the 13th lap.

As the non-stop laps wound down in the 25-lap feature ninth-starting Montieth and seventh-starting Freddie Rahmer were methodically working there way to the front as Esh cruised out it front, just out of reach of the back of the field.

Montieth started gaining on the leaders and moved around Forsythe for third on the 18th lap and then by Haas for the runner-up spot with five laps to go.

Just as it looked like Esh had the checkered in sight in the non-stop affair, disaster struck on the 23rd lap as Forsythe and Gerard McIntyre, Jr. tangled in turn two to bring out the caution.

“I really didn’t look at the leader board until the caution came out with three (laps) to go,” said Esh. “I was starting to catch lapped traffic and trying not to make a mistake. When I saw (Montieth) on the board I didn’t know what to do other than to not mess up and hope for the best.”

This set up a dramatic three-lap dash to the checkered with Esh being chased by Montieth (who had won the last two races at Lincoln), Haas, and Rahmer.

“When I seen the No.21 (Montieth) on the board I knew he could run top end on me so I figured as long as I didn’t mess up I was either going to win it or put it into the fence trying.”

Rahmer got by Haas for third on the restart with Esh now staring at Montieth and Rahmer chasing him with a clear track ahead and only two laps to go.

“I know we haven’t went out of here on four wheel too much, but this definitely feels good. I can’t thank my mom, Sue, and dad, Sam, and my brother Travis enough. And my wife Jessica for sticking behind me and letting me come back after getting hurt. My wife just lost her grandmother so I hope she was riding with me and helped us get here.”

Montieth started to show himself on the inside of each turn with Esh holding steady in his high line around each time. In the final turns to the checkered Montieth appeared to pull even on the inside but the Lancaster racer held steady and drove away on the exit of the turn to take the checkered for his first career 410 sprint win.

“I feel like I’m getting more-and-more comfortable (in the car). We had some bugs there the last couple of weeks. We just had to work through it. We’ll just give it all we got and keep going and keep this momentum going.”

Rahmer settled for third, Alan Krimes fourth, and Haas fifth.

“You’ve got to take advantage of your starting position and not make any mistakes. I owe this to everyone who helps me out Kevin Quirk from Racewear, Chad Baker from RRI Designs, Diversified Machine, RAYCO, my mom and dad, my brother.”

Rounding out the top-10 were Kyle Moody, Jim Siegel, Chad Trout, Brandon Rahmer, and Landon Myers.

Heats for the 17 410 Sprinters on hand were won by Esh and Fisher.

Manheim’s Brent Shearer started his No.12 sprinter on the pole and led forth-starting No.12B of Mike Bittinger all 20 laps en route to his first win of 2018, and the third of his career in the 358 sprint feature.

Shearer withstood a pair of cautions, one on the fourth lap for a slowing Greg Plank (who started outside Shearer on the frontrow), and another on the 12th lap for a spinning Cody Fletcher and Kenny Kuhn. Each time Shearer held off Bittinger and Troy Wagaman, Jr. (who started sixth) and raced away to a comfortable 2.53-second victory.

Bittinger and Wagaman settled for second and third respectively with last weeks’ 358 sprint season-opening winner and 13th-starting Jeff Halligan fourth, and 11th-starting Chase Dietz fifth.

Completing the top-10 were 14 year old Dylan Norris, Matt Findley, Dave Brown, Brie Hershey, and Fletcher.

Heats for the 19 358 Sprinters on hand were won by Dietz and Norris.

Bob Gutshall kicked off the super sportsman season with a win in the special 20-lap wingless super sportsman feature. Gutshall took the lead from his pole-starting position and held off veteran racer Billy Brian, Jr. to claim the victory by 1.41-seconds.

Fifth-starting Steve Wilbur, sixth-starting Carmen Perigo, Jr., and eighth-starting Craig Perigo completed the top-five.

Heats for the 15 Wingless Super Sportsman were won by Joey Biassi and Gutshall.

Lincoln Speedway is back in action next Saturday night, April 14th at 7 PM, with the 410 Sprints and 358 Sprints being joined by the street stocks. Gates will open at 5 PM, with hot laps getting underway at 6:30 PM, and heats at 7 PM.

Blaney Passes Hodnett & Out-Guns Wolfe To Win Port Royal Sprints Thriller Dylan Yoder Is Tops In Super Late Models While Miller Takes 305s

 4/7/18

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – It was a great night for the Blaney family in racing “circles” on Saturday as veteran sprint car driver Dave Blaney of Mooresville, NC., took his fourth career victory at Port Royal Speedway in Pennsylvania while his son Ryan Blaney scored the NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Texas Motor Speedway.

To get his fourth career win at Port Royal worth $3,600, “The Buckeye Bullet,” Dave Blaney had to drive by Greg Hodnett and then out-gun Lucas Wolfe to the checkers.

In the 22-lap super late model main, Selinsgrove’s Dylan Yoder took the $2,000 payday after a battle with Nick Dickson and an attempt at stealing the lead at the hands of Coleby Frye.

The 18-lap 305 sprint main was scored by Jeff Miller of Huntingdon after a crash in the final turn took out the leader.

Hodnett started second in the 25-lap 410 sprint car main with Blaney taking the green from the third position and Wolfe in 10th.

The caution appeared early in the event, with two laps scored when Parker Price-Miller spun high in the fourth turn and collected Jason Shultz and Joe Kata.

Hodnett held command for the restart with Kody Lehman and Blaney following.

Blaney snagged second from Lehman at the new green and then stuck with Hodnett, not allowing him to “check out” as the race entered the rear of the field with eight laps away.

Racing through traffic, Blaney was able to narrow Hodnett’s advantage before the second caution flag of the race unfurled with 11 laps to go for a spin by Aaron Reutzel who was up to sixth after starting the race in 14th.

Blaney blasted across the bottom and middle of the first corner on the restart to drive by Hodnett and take command of the event while Lucas Wolfe restarted third.

Wolfe was working well on both sides of the track and overtook Hodnett for second with nine laps to go.

Blaney then raced to stay ahead of Wolfe as he came up on the rear of the field during the final five laps but Wolfe was clearly closing as the two-to-go sign came out.

Wolfe had just one shot to steal the win and it came with a deep, third turn dive and swoop to come up off the bottom in the fourth turn with the lead, just in front of Blaney.

But Blaney turned the car down off of the cushion as the pair raced out of the fourth turn and drew back to Wolfe’s inside as they sped toward the checkers, mustering just enough power to retake command as the finish line neared, posting a .312 second margin of victory.

Hodnett rode home third followed by Anthony Macri and Dylan Cisney.

Sixth through 10th went to Brock Zearfoss, Danny Dietrich, Logan Wagner, Steve Buckwalter and Mike Wagner.

Heats went to Rick Lafferty, Jason Shultz and Joe Kata.

Second starter Nick Dickson would lead the first 10 laps of the super late model main before losing the lead to Dylan Yoder.

Yoder and Dickson waged a spirited battle for control for several laps before Yoder was finally able to muscle control away.

In fact, just before Yoder came up with the lead, he was wound up in a three-car battle for control, squeezed in between Dickson and an advancing Coleby Frye in the fourth corner.

And it was out of that squeeze play that Yoder took command, just before the first yellow flag of the race unfurled with 11 laps away.

Dickson failed to challenge on the restart and then ended up withdrawing from the event as Frye assumed second with Andy Haus in third.

Restarts with 14, 17 and 20 laps in the books found Haus challenging Frye for second but to no avail and each time Yoder was able to pull away.

It was the 13th win of Yoder’s Port Royal career, coming by 1.073 seconds over Frye, Haus, Andrew Yoder and Mike Lupfer.

Sixth through 10th went to Brett Schadel, Tim Smith Jr., Rance Garlock, Jason Schmidt and Larry Baer.

Heats went to Lupfer and Haus.

Nick Sweigart led all but the final lap of the 305 sprint main, falling victim to an increasingly ragged outside cushion.

Sweigart had Austin Bishop challenging during the first half of the race and then found Jeff Miller in pursuit during the second half.

With a few laps to go Sweigart clouted the outside first turn wall but saved the car and his lead as he appeared headed to a first ever Port Royal win.

But that outside wall bit again, this time as he sailed near it in the third and fourth turns where he ended up riding the wall before losing control and spinning as he headed to the checkers.

This handed the lead to Miller who made good on his fortunes to pick up the win.

Drew Ritchey was second followed by Kyle Smith, Jonathan Jones and Zach Newlin.

Three heats went to Smith, Miller and Dave Grube.

Haas Wins First For Trone At Williams Grove, Nouse Gets Careeer 18th In 358s

4/6/18
 

Mechanicsburg – Cory Haas of York drove the Trone’s Special No. 39 sprinter to the victory Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway, rocketing from his front row starting spot to pick up the win.

In the 358 sprint main, defending track champion Kevin Nouse took his first victory of the season.

The first start in the 25-lap 410 sprint main was red flagged when Kody Lehman spun in the first turn, collecting Brock Zearfoss and Anthony Macri.

The next attempt at a start saw Freddie Rahmer tangle with Steve Buckwalter in the same turn, forcing a yellow flag to unfurl.

Haas then sped away in the Trone’s Special on the third attempted start to lead the first circuit over Brian Montieth.

But the caution quickly unfuled again, with just two laps scored, this time for a slowing Adrian Shaffer in the third corner.

The rest of the distance would go non-stop with Montieth giving chase of Haas the entire distance.

On more than one occasion, Montieth appeared poised to take a stab at the leader only to scrub speed as he attempted to set his mount up for a run on the cushion.

Haas entered the rear of the field on the 13th lap, allowing Montieth to get his closest a few laps later.

As the pair headed to the stripe to record lap 16, Montieth was able to get under Haas for the lead in the third and fourth turns but Haas’ momentum kept him in control of the race.

With five laps to go, Haas struggled to get Tyler Eash one lap down and again Montieth had a chance to make the most of his chances but Haas was able to stay just out of striking distance on the cushion to preserve his lead.

Montieth took a final blast for the lead as the front duo shot into the third corner, but came up short at the finish line as Haas was not to be deterred, taking the seventh win of his career at the track by .329 seconds.

It was Haas’ first win at the track since September 6, 2015 and his first since taking over the seat of the Trone No. 39.

Rick Lafferty rode home third followed by Lucas Wolfe and Greg Hodnett.

After starting 14th, Parker Price-Miller rode home in sixth followed by Danny Dietrich, Chad Trout, TJ Stutts and Gerard McIntyre Jr.

Heats went to Matt Boland, Haas and Montieth.

Nouse started third in the 20-lap 358 sprint main and followed Hank Donovan Jr. for just the first lap before taking control of the event.

The entire race went non-stop with last week’s winner, Jeff Halligan motoring through the field from the seventh starting spot.

Halligan took fifth on the third lap, third on lap nine and drove into second with eight laps to go.

Halligan then cut Nouse’s advantage down from nearly half a lap to about a straightaway but ran out of time to gain any more ground.

The victory was the 18th of Nouse’s career at Williams Grove Speedway in the 358 division.

Brett Wanner was third followed by Donovan and Scott Fisher.

Sixth through 10th went to Todd Rittenhouse Jr., Troy Wagaman Jr., Matt Findley, Gregg Foster and Chris Frank.

Twin heats went to Nouse and Donovan.

Another 410 Sprint Yellow Breeches 500 & 358 Sprint Double At Williams Grove Friday
Deep All Stars Contingent Invades For Tommy Hinnershitz Classic April 6

4/1/18
 

Mechanicsburg – Another Yellow Breeches 500 Series event for the Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint cars is in the offing this Friday, April 6, as the oval moves to an 8 pm starting time.

Also appearing this Friday, for the second time this season, will be the HJ Towing & Recovery 358 sprints.

Adult general admission for the April 6 racing program is set at $15 with students ages 13-20 admitted for just $10.

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

The Yellow Breeches 500 Series for the 410 sprint cars is a series of races held each season that pays a hefty $500 to start the evening’s 25-lap main event.

Following this week’s Yellow Breeches race, Friday the 13th of April will present one lucky driver with the biggest payday of the young Williams Grove season when the great Tommy Hinnershitz is memorialized with the running of the Tommy Classic.

The Arctic Cat All Stars Circuit of Champions Sprints will invade the oval to compete for a $5,000 payday in the event.

The mid-April All Stars match up with the Pennsylvania Posse for the Tommy Classic comes with very few races having been completed in the region this season thanks to the elements.

That fact coupled with the recently released 2018 All Stars driver roster lays the groundwork for what should be a challenging and exciting Williams Grove event for all comers.

The All Stars traveling band this season includes some great depth including veterans like 30-time All Stars winner Jac Haudenschild, 74-time All Stars winner Joey Saldana, 48-time series winner Dave Blaney and returning series champion Chad Kemenah.

Of the promising young All Stars touring talent this season, drivers sure to put some spark in the contingent are Parker Price Miller, Kokomo, IN.; Aaron Reutzel, Clute, TX; and Cale Conley of Vienna, West Virginia.

Other regulars will include the likes of Max Stambaugh, Carl Bowser, Caleb Helms and Tyler Esh, to name a few.

This week’s Yellow Breeches race will be the last chance for any local drivers to get dialed into the Williams Grove surface before the All Stars invasion.

The PASS/IMCA 305 sprints are also on the April 13 racing card.

BRIAN MONTIETH CAPTURES $5,000 SPRINT SPRING CHAMPIONSHIP FOR SECOND STRAIGHT LINCOLN WIN;

Jeff Halligan wins 358 Sprint Season Opener

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 3/31/2018 – Brian Montieth charged from his sixth starting spot to chase down front row race-long leader Danny Dietrich while navigating lapped traffic on the seventh lap, grabbed the lead on the eighth lap, and drove away to his second win of 2018 in the 30-lap $5,000-to-win Sprint Spring Championship Saturday night at the Fabulous Lincoln Speedway.

In the 358 Sprint nightcap, sixth-starting Jeff Halligan passed front row starter and race-long leader Tyler Walton on the fifth lap for the lead, and then man-handled his sprinter over the final laps en route to the season-opening 20-lap feature win for the 358 sprints.

In the first time-trial, big-money, 410 Sprint event of 2018 at Lincoln Speedway, defending six-time track champion Brian Montieth left no doubt that he is once again ready for the challenge to defend his title with a convincing win in the 30-lap Spring Championship.

Outside front row starter Danny Dietrich of Gettysburg drove by polesitter Freddie Rahmer at the drop of he green to take the lead by the end of the opening lap. Dietrich quickly tried to put some distance between himself and the field while in the clean air in front of the field. His speed allowed him to catch the back of the field with only six laps down.

Meanwhile Montieth did what Montieth does best, charging hard and passing cars. Montieth got by third-starting Lucas Wolfe for fourth at the end of the second lap. He then drove around third-starting Alan Krimes for third on the third lap. And then finally passed polesitter Rahmer on the seventh as Dietrich entered lapped traffic.

Montieth didn’t waste time. He closed on Dietrich entering the first and second turns of the eighth lap and took the lead before the lap was complete.

From there Montieth used what the track gave him. A Trey Starks spin in the first and second turns with 10 laps in the books gave the challengers behind Montieth an opening. Dietrich, Rahmer, Krimes, and Wolfe all lined up behind Montieth on the restart with 20 laps to go and tried desperately to keep pace with the driver called, “The Edge”.

Montieth drove his Jerry Parrish-owned Premier Auto Works Racing No.21 hard at the drop of the green and continued his assault over the final 20 non-stop laps to record his 57th career win at the Pigeon Hills oval. The win moved him into sole possession of fifth place on the All time Lincoln Speedway winners list.

Dietrich, Rahmer, Wolfe and Krimes settled for second through fifth-place respectively.

Completing the top-10 were fifth-starting Corey Haas, seventh-starting Parker Price Miller, 15th-starting Kasey Kahne, 11th-starting Kyle Moody, and 10th-starting Jim Siegel.

NASCAR driver Kasey Kahne and NASCAR Truck Series Champion Christopher Bell were on hand to battle the Pennsylvania Posse this night. Kahne timed 18th quick in time trials, finished fifth in his heat, and finished eighth in the 30-lap feature after starting 15th. Bell timed 12th quick, finished third in his heat, but suffered mechanical problems in the feature after starting 12th and finished a distant 22nd.

Heats for the 410 Sprinters were won by Haas, Montieth, and Dietrich, with Tim Glatfelter winning the consolation.

Fast time in time trials over the 25-car field was set by Wolfe with a 1-lap time of 13.367-seconds (100.995 MPH).

Just like his 410 sprint counterpart, 358 Sprint driver started sixth in the 20-lap 358 sprint feature opener, quickly drove to the front and took the lead from second-starting race-long leader Tyler Walton by the fifth lap.

Halligan appeared to be dominant while racing out in front through heavy lapped traffic. But a stoppage of action on the 15th lap for a Brent Shearer flip in the second turn revealed a potential problem in he form of a broken power steering.

But Halligan didn’t allow it to derail his opening day drive. Halligan drove hard on the restart and through lapped traffic over the final 6 non-stop laps to take the checkered .88-seconds in front of third-starting Steve Drevicki and 11th-starting Chase Dietz for his sixth career Lincoln Speedway 358 sprint win.

Eighth-starting Kyle Denmyer finished fourth, with Walton settling for fifth.

Completing the top-10 were Eric Parker, Cody Fletcher, Trey Hivner, Ashley Cappetta, and Brie Hershey.

Heats for the 26 358 Sprinters were won by Chase Dietz, Shearer, and Parker.

Lincoln Speedway switches to night time racing next Saturday, March 24th at 6 PM, with the 410 Sprints being joined by the 358 Sprints. Gates will open at 4 PM, with hot laps getting underway at 5:30 PM, and heats at 6 PM.

Dewease, Rine, Weaver And Powell Open Port Royal Season With Wins

3/31/18

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Lance Dewease of Fayetteville scored the 2018 season opener for 410 sprint cars at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night, taking the lead from Jason Shultz to record the $4,000 victory which was the 107th of his career at the Juniata County oval.

Jeff Rine of Danville proved victorious in the super late model main to record his 19th career win at the oval. Rine took home $2,200 for the win.

In the Mason Dixon Shootout Series feature for limited late models, Justin Weaver took the lead from Tim Fedder to pick up the $1,000 payday and defending track champion Bill Powell scored the win in the xtreme stock main to close out the night.

Just over 100 total racecars packed the Port Royal pits for the show.

Shultz and Dewease earned the front row for the 25-lap sprint car main with the first start aborted when Mark Smith spun in the third turn, collecting Jared Esh and Vince Snyder.

Dewease had gotten the upper hand on that initial start but the next try saw Shultz keep his rear wheels underneath his mount and take the lead over Dewease.

Shultz could only outlast Dewease’s 69K for two laps however before Dewease drove to his inside in the first and second turns to take control on the third lap.

Meanwhile, sixth starter Dylan Cisney was blasting around the speedway and drove into third on the fifth tour as Dewease hit traffic with seven away.

Cisney had driven down Shultz and Dewease to be in a challenging position when the caution flag unfurled with 11 laps completed.

However after the restart Cisney failed to be able to mount a bid and instead Dewease went uncontested to the victory, which was his third career Port Royal opening day checkers.

Finishing second, 2.5 seconds behind was Shultz with Mike Wagner getting third followed by Greg Hodnett and Cisney who faded later in the event.

Sixth through 10th went to Brock Zearfoss, Carl Bowser, Dave Blaney, Steve Buckwalter and Ryan Taylor.

Heats for the 27 sprint cars went to Cisney, Hodnett and Bowser with TJ Stutts taking the consolation.

Rine started on the pole of the 22-lap super late model main and led every lap for the win.

His pace was slowed thanks to cautions on the fifth, eighth and ninth laps but no one could mount a challenge for the win.

Andy Haus chased Rine for the first nine laps before Coleby Frye took second on a restart.

Rine drove to the checkers with a 2.6 second margin over Frye, followed by Haus, Trent Brenneman and Tim Smith Jr.

Sixth through 10th went to Michael Maresca, Travis Stickley, Dylan Yoder, Hayes Mattern and Danny Snyder.

Heats for the 26 cars went to Rine, Haus and Stickley with the consolation going to Tyler Bare.

The 20-lap Mason Dixon limited late model feature saw Taylor Farling lead from the pole when action began with sixth starter Tim Fedder giving chase immediately from the start.

It took Fedder only six laps to circle outside for the lead however 13th starter Justin Weaver proved fleet as well and made his presence known by the halfway point.

Weaver took command from Fedder with just five laps to go to run to the win.

Jeremy Ohl got by Fedder in the final two laps to finish second with Fedder ending up third followed by Farling and Devin Frey.

Sixth through 10th went to Dillan Stake, Derick Garman, Chuck Shultz, Shaun Jones and Brad McGinnis.

Heats for the 38-car field went to Frey, Fedder, Craig Wagaman and Ohl. Ryan Walls won the consolation race.

Bill Powell led all 15 laps of the xtreme stock feature with Whelan Brunson racing up to second by the finish from the 11th starting spot.

However post race inspection found Brunson relegated to last, thus bumping original third finisher Kevin Imes up to second with Jason Zook credited with third.

Ryan Taylor Scores Career Second In Williams Grove Sprints
Jeff Halligan opens 358 season with victory

3/30/18
 

Mechanicsburg – Ryan Taylor dominated the 25-lap sprint car feature at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night to record his second career oval victory in 410 sprint car action.

The win was worth $3,600 for the Perkasie driver.

In the season debut of the 358 sprint car divison at the track, Jeff Halligan outran Kevin Nouse for the win.

The initial start of the 410 sprint car main was red flagged for a first turn flip by Brian Montieth, who had started fifth in the field.

Max McGhee clobbered Montieth after flipping however both drivers escaped injury.

Only the first lap of the main was completed before the first of four yellow flags unfurled on the field, this one for a slowing Greg Hodnett and Tyler Esh and Freddie Rahmer who withdrew from the race.

Taylor led Mark Smith for the restart as Lance Dewease got by Anthony Macri for third and set his sights on Smith.

The pair raced close for the second spot with Dewease moving to Smith’s inside on more than one occasion before the duo made contact with six away, finding Dewease spinning in the fourth turn while Smith continued on.

The restart saw fourth place runner Lucas Wolfe stop on the track.

The final caution flag of the race appeared with 12 laps down when Caleb Helms spun in the third turn and then Taylor’s pace went unhalted to the finish.

Smith was never able to mount a challenge for the win over the balance of the event, instead finishing 2.058 seconds behind at the finish.

Taylor noted that he knew he had a car that was good enough to win when on the initial start he set the car into the first turn, “and it stuck like glue.”

TJ Stutts rode home third followed by Macri and Trey Starks.

Sixth through 10th went to 16th starter Kasey Kahne, Parker Price Miller, Steve Buckwalter, Hodnett and Brock Zearfoss.

Heats for the 31 car field went to Tyler Esh, Stutts and Montieth with the consolation going to Danny Dietrich.

The first 12 laps of the 20 lap 358 sprint main went non-stop with original third starter Jeff Halligan leading from the start.

Halligan slid to the pole for the initial start after Phil Walter relinquished the spot before the green flag could drop.

Halligan’s pace was slowed with 12 down for a third turn spin by Brett Wanner.

The restart saw third runner Chase Dietz hop the cushion and spin in the first turn.

No further cautions would hinder the race after that point with Halligan holding off defending track champion Kevin Nouse for the victory on both of the restarts.

At the finish and for the final 10 laps, Halligan held a one-turn advantage over Nouse.

Matt Findley rode home third followed by Brent Shearer and Chris Frank.

Sixth through 10th went to Nyle Berkes, Brie Hershey, Todd Rittenhouse Jr., Glenndon Forsythe and Gregg Foster.

Heats went to Halligan, Foster and Shearer.

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – An exciting new era at Selinsgrove Speedway will begin at 6 p.m. Saturday, April 7, when the Snyder County oval swings open its gates for the “Wide Open 2018” Opener featuring 360 sprint cars and super late models in $2,000-to-win 25-lap main events. The pro stocks will round out the racing card in a $500-to-win 15-lap feature.

All the excitement and anticipation surrounding the upcoming season is being amplified by the biggest change in the speedway’s 72-year history with the pit area being moved outside the half-mile oval to provide fans with a wide-open view of the wheel-to-wheel racing action!

As long as the weather cooperates we expect everything to be ready for the start of a historical season.”

Race fans are encouraged to use the Route 35 Entrance and race teams should plan to use the newly-widened Sand Hill Road Entrance to drive into the new pit area. The former Turn 4 Entrance will only be used to exit the new pit area at the conclusion of racing programs.

Selinsgrove Speedway will hold an open practice session 1-4 p.m. Saturday, March 31, for any division that will be competing at the track this year. Grandstand admission on practice day will be free and pit passes will be $20. Gates will open at 12 p.m.

The practice day will give race teams an opportunity to dial in their race cars, test out the speedway’s new red clay surface, and get familiar with the new pit area layout and procedures.

The speedway will showcase the 360 sprint cars, limited late models, pro stocks, and roadrunners at 6 p.m. Saturday, April 14. The Pen Mar Vintage Race Car Club will also be on hand April 14.

The 410 sprint cars will make their first stop at Selinsgrove Speedway this season Sunday, April 22, for the Ray Tilley Classic paying $4,088 to win.

MONTIETH WINS LAST LAP THRILLER FOR 56TH CAREER WIN AT LINCOLN SPEEDWAY;

Jeremy Ott claims first career win in Central PA Legends season opener

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 3/17/2018 – Montieth drove under race-long leader Alan Krimes with the white flag waving entering the first and second turns, and raced away to his historic 56th career win in the 25-lap 410 sprint feature at the Fabulous Lincoln Speedway Saturday afternoon.

“That was my only shot,” said Montieth following his dramatic last lap pass for the win Saturday afternoon. “Alan (Krimes) was better than me in clean air…I was just hoping we’d get to lapped traffic sooner. (Krimes) had a 50-50 shot there on that one, and so did I, but we came out ahead.”

“I can’t say enough more about this Triple-X ride, Penske, and my boys. It’s going to be a long season I think for them because we might tear some stuff up. But it’s going to be fun.”

It looked like Alan Krimes had the field covered, leading the first 23 laps from his pole starting position. But then Montieth “happened”.

Montieth was charging through the field from his 9th starting position to move into second place by the 16th lap. But with Krimes effortlessly working through lapped traffic early on it didn’t appear Montieth would have a shot at the win.

A series of fortuitous cautions kept giving Krimes a clear track and clean air to remain in control as the laps wound down. Following the final caution restart with six laps to go Krimes finally caught lapped traffic with two laps to go. And Montieth was there.

“The track was a little narrow…I’ll be so glad when the lights are back on” reflected Montieth on his drive to the front in the final day race of the season at Lincoln Speedway. “There was a lot of passing out there and a lot of young guys out there holding there own for a long time. The track was demanding. It just shows you the competition that is here.”

With the white flag waving, Krimes got bottled up behind lapped cars entering the first and second turns. Montieth dove under Krimes and grabbed the lead exiting the second turn heading up the backstretch. Montieth held on through the final two turns to claim his first win of 2018.

“This is a new one,” said Montieth on this No.21 sprint car in victory lane after his crash the week before at Williams Grove. “That one got wrecked so they just put another one together…every week is a new week so we’ll see what happens.”

Krimes settled for the runner-up finish, with sixth-starting Cory Haas third, 10th-starting Kyle Moody fourth, and Jim Siegel fifth.

Completing the top-10 were Lucas Wolfe, Anthony Macri, Glenndon Forsythe, Greg Hodnett, and Caleb Helms

“It’s good to see the guys come in,” Montieth added about the teams who traveled to Lincoln to take advantage of the early-season racing. “It helps you gauge how you stack up against others around the country.”

Heats for the 27 410 Sprinters were won by Krimes, Brett Michalski, and Cole Young.

The fans who remained following the 410 sprint feature and braved the chilly afternoon weather got to see a great race-long battle in the season-opening 20-lap Central PA Legends feature. When the checkered flag waved, Carlisle’s Jeremy Ott was in front to notch his first career Legends victory.

Early race leader Donnie Leiby surrendered the top spot on lap nine to a charging Mason Chaney who was coming from his eighth starting position.

But Ott, who started ninth, kept pace with Chaney and made his race-winning pass on the 12th lap. Ott then held off Chaney the final eight laps to record his inaugural Legends victory.

10th-starting Travis McClelland finished third, fifth-starting Travis Perry finished fourth, and 19th-starting Lucas Montgomery finished a remarkable run in fifth.

Completing the top-10 were Leiby, Bill Diehl, 20th-starting Trent Yoder, 14th-starting Rick Hartwig, and 12th-starting Auston Bellemare.

Heats for the 30 Pizza Shop of Etters Central PA Legends were won by Chaney, Scott Haudeshell, and Perry, with Montgomery winning the consolation.

Lincoln Speedway switches to night time racing next Saturday, March 24th at 6 PM, with the 410 Sprints being joined by the 358 Sprints. Gates will open at 4 PM, with hot laps getting underway at 5:30 PM, and heats at 6 PM.

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY NAMES TODD PEIFER DIRECTOR OF FIRE & SAFETY SERVICES;
INTENSIVE HANDS-ON TRAINING HELD FOR TRACK SAFETY CREW MARCH 11

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Selinsgrove Speedway named Todd Peifer of Millersburg as the speedway’s Director of Fire & Safety Services for the upcoming 2018 season. Peifer, who owns and operates Peifer Fire Protection, Inc., is a veteran emergency medical technician (EMT) and expert in the field of fire suppression and safety.

For more than 27 years, Peifer Fire Protection is one of the leading fire suppression companies in the United States, and Peifer himself is one of a select few specially-trained industrial fire brigade instructors. His company provides fire suppression equipment to a number of regional and national motorsports venues.

“We are very pleased to have Todd take on this leadership position with the track,” said Selinsgrove Speedway General Manager Steve Inch. “Safety is the most important aspect of operating a race track, and Todd’s wealth of knowledge and expertise will complement one of the best-trained safety crews at any speedway in the country.”

Peifer will oversee the coordination and logistics of the speedway’s fire and safety program with the Dauntless Hook & Ladder Fire Company of Selinsgrove. A direct communication link with Central Susquehanna Communications (911 Unit) has been established for the speedway to dispatch additional emergency, aero-medical, and state police resources if needed.

“My parents were season ticket holders at Selinsgrove Speedway so I’ve had a connection to the track since I was a child,” said Peifer. “I enjoyed volunteering on the fire crew and wanted to share my experience in the industry to make the track’s safety crew the best it can be.”

“My goal is to pull the crew together, give them the tools and training they need to be prepared for any situation they might face, and take Selinsgrove Speedway’s safety program to the next level by using today’s technology to our advantage,” Peifer continued. “We want the drivers, crews, and fans to feel safe when they are at the track.”

For the 2018 season, the safety crew has been outfitted with new helmets purchased by the Selinsgrove Fair Association and a dedicated set of two-way radios provided by the speedway. The new radio system will allow safety crew members to communicate among themselves as well as with track officials.

Selinsgrove Speedway was one of the first dirt tracks in the country with a fully operational Purple-K fire response vehicle thanks to the contributions by Peifer Fire Protection. Purple-K is one of the most effective agents used to extinguish flammable liquid fires such as those that are prone to occur in auto racing.

FRP/Fire & Rescue Products of Harrisburg will continue to provide the speedway’s safety crew with a dedicated “Jaws of Life” unit in the event a driver needs to be extricated from a race car.

Hilly Ridge Sales & Service of Mt. Pleasant Mills provided the speedway with a 2018 Mahindra Retriever for the upcoming season. The all-terrain vehicle has been equipped to serve as an additional Purple-K mobile response unit.

INTENSIVE HANDS-ON FIRE & SAFETY TRAINING DAY CONDUCTED BY EXPERTS
FROM PEIFER FIRE PROTECTION, POCONO RACEWAY, NHRA, FIRE & RESCUE PRODUCTS

MILLERSBUG, Pa. – Todd Peifer, who was recently named Selinsgrove Speedway’s Director of Fire & Safety Services, conducted an intensive hands-on training day March 11 for more than 25 safety crew members at the Peifer Fire Protection, Inc. facility in Millersburg.

Peifer was joined by Dave Richards, Fire Chief at Pocono Raceway; Steve Jeffrey, Fire & Rescue at Pocono Raceway; Tino Gonzalez, Northeast Division Services Coordinator with the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA); and John Brownawell from FRP/Fire & Rescue Products.

The guest speakers gave lectures and provided hands-on training covering race track best practices for fire suppression, rescue equipment operation, extrication, emergency vehicle staging, personal protection and communication, to name a few.

Jim Bernheisel at Bernheisel Race Cars in Lebanon provided late model chassis and Ken Duke Racing of Selinsgrove provided a sprint car chassis for the various training exercises.

“On behalf of Selinsgrove Speedway, we would like to thank Todd and everyone who contributed time and resources to make this an effective and successful training day at Peifer Fire Protection,” said Inch.

Selinsgrove Speedway’s 2018 season opener is slated for 6 p.m. Saturday, April 7, featuring the Mach 1 Chassis 360 sprint cars, Jeff’s Auto Body & Recycling Center super late models, and A&A Auto Stores pro stocks.

Lucas Wolfe Scores First Career Williams Grove Season Opener Sunday

3/11/18

MECHANICSBURG - Lucas Wolfe of Mechanicsburg led from start to finish to pick up the prestigious Williams Grove Speedway season opener for sprint cars on Sunday afternoon.

Wolfe’s first victory in the oval opener was worth $3,600. It was the 18th overall victory of his Williams Grove Speedway career.

The initial start of the 25 lap main for the 410 sprints was red-flagged when Phoenixville’s Brian Montieth vaulted into a series of flips in the second corner after starting 10th.

Montieth escaped injury.

Wolfe then went to work from the pole position to take control in the event ahead of Ohio invader Caleb Helms.

The first 22 laps of the race went non-stop with Wolfe entering lapped traffic on the seventh tour while pulling away.

And by the time the caution flag unfurled with three laps to go, Wolfe had built up a 9.077 second lead over Helms.

The caution flag appeared for a spin in the third turn by Cory Haas, who was running in eighth spot at the time.

As Haas spun backward, defending opening day winner Danny Dietrich made contact with the spinner however he was able to stay under power.

On the restart, another red flag appeared for yet another series of flip, this time as executed by Anthony Macri in the first corner.

Again, there were no injuries.

Ninth starter Greg Hodnett made the most of the final three laps once action resumed, getting by Helms on the final circuit for second.

Hodnett had previously motored inside the top five by getting around Freddie Rahmer and Jason Shultz with five laps to go.

Wolfe took the win by 1.645 seconds over Hodnett with Helms in third followed by Rahmer and Brock Zearfoss.

Sixth through 10th went to Shultz, Danny Dietrich, TJ Stutts, Coleman Gulick and Gerard McIntyre Jr.

Twin heats went to Montieth and Zearfoss.

Feature finish: 1. Lucas Wolfe, 2. Greg Hodnett, 3. Caleb Helms, 4. Freddie Rahmer, 5. Brock Zearfoss, 6. Jason Shultz, 7. Danny Dietrich, 8. TJ Stutts, 9. Coleman Gulick, 10. Gerard McIntyre Jr., 11. Bradley Howard, 12. Troy Fraker, 13. Anthony Macri, 14. Cory Haas, 15. Rick Lafferty, 16. Kody Lehman, 17. Brandon Rahmer, 18. Brian Montieth, 19. Jared Esh

DANNY DIETRICH OUTDUALS WOLFE FOR 39TH CAREER LINCON WIN;

Central PA Legends to join 410 sprint cars for final afternoon show of the season next Saturday, March 17th

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 3/10/2018 – “I think I’d rather forget about last week,” said Danny Dietrich upon exiting his Weikert’s Livestock/Sandoe’s Fruit Market No.48 in victory lane. “It feels good to be standing here today.”

“These guys (crew) put in a lot of hard work over time and so did I. To be good and get a daytime win here (feels real good)…last year it wasn’t over until it was nighttime.”

Fourth-starting Dietrich of Gettysburg followed polesitter and race-long leader Lucas Wolfe through the first half of the 25-lap feature before edging by for the lead at the start-finish line of the 14th lap. The caution waved for a spinning Chris Prior just before they got into the first and second turns, making the pass official even though the lap didn’t count as half the field didn’t cross the line before the caution actually waved. From there Dietrich was able to keep Wolfe behind him the rest of the way to claim his first win of the year and the $3,500 top prize that went with it in the 25-lap 410 sprint car feature at the Fabulous Lincoln Speedway Saturday afternoon.

“His car was really good,” said Dietrich on battle with Lucas Wolfe for the second week in-a-row. “He could really drive through the middle and drive the top pretty good and be pretty stuck.”

“I just felt the bottom was a good place to be. I got down there and stuck to it and made it my preferred line. Down there (turns one and two) you could move around. You could get on top and on bottom. I was just trying to make some moves. He’s got a fast car and he been hard to pass. I really wasn’t sure (if he could pass him).”

For the second straight week, Wolfe started on the pole, and led the first 13 laps before yielding to Dietrich, who had caught second-starting Kyle Moody for the runner-up spot on lap nine. Dietrich chased Wolfe after moving into second place, but was waiting for the right moment to make a bid for the lead. Dietrich found the opportunity exiting the fourth turn on the 14th lap and edged by at the line to complete the lap.

“I knew I just had to get back out”, said Dietrich on trying to wrestle the lead from Wolfe. “At some point in time I knew I had to abort my line and get back out and disturb his air…I’m glad he didn’t get back in front of me. I wasn’t sure I could get back by him. The track was getting pretty narrow all around and I wasn’t sure I could get back around him.”

An 18th lap caution for a spinning Caleb Helms gave Wolfe one last opportunity to retake the lead from Dietrich. But Dietrich was up to the challenge and raced to a 1.215-seconds win in front of Wolfe for his 39th career win at the Pigeon Hills oval.

“I was pretty good before that last caution came out,” revealed Dietrich afterwards. “I didn’t feel like my car was as good after that caution and I wasn’t sure with all the (previous) cautions that my tires were sealing over a little bit or whatever.”

“I had him at the line (just before the caution came out) and who knows if I would have made it through one and two in front of him…I’m just glad to beat him.”

Wolfe settled for second, with third-starting Greg Hodnett finishing third, ninth-starting Brian Monteith fourth, and Moody settling for fifth. Sixth through tenth were tenth-starting Brandon Rahmer, 12th-starting Gerard McIntyre, Jr., 16th-starting Tim Glatfelter, 15th-starting Jim Siegel, and opening day winner Chad Trout.

Heats for the 25 410 Sprints were won by Wolfe, Caleb Helms (who was collected in Freddie Rahmer’s spin on lap 12 of the feature and then spun again in turn two of lap 19), and Cory Haas whose early season woes continued with a spin from his sixth-starting spot at the drop of the green in the first two turns of the feature. Haas did come back through the field to finish 11th.

Next Saturday, March 17th, Lincoln Speedway returns with its final afternoon show, but its first 2-division show, of 2018 with the 410 Sprints being joined by the Central PA Legends. Gates will open at noon, with heats beginning at 2 PM.

On the opening day racing card will be the Weikert’s Livestock 410 sprints and the River Valley Builders super late models.

The super sprint cars will race in a 25-lap main paying $4,000 to win while the super lates compete for $2,200 to win.

If able to be staged, the March 10, 2018, Port Royal Opener will place it in a tie to be the second earliest track event in recorded history.

Port Royal returns to action on Saturday, March 17 at 5 pm with another two-division program of 410 sprints and super late models before the late models compete in their first big event of the season, the ULMS Chiller Thriller on March 24.

Abbottstown, PA

2018 SEASON OPENING ICE BREAKER 30

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Sat., March 10, 2018 (2 PM) 410 Sprints plus open practice session for other divisions

Sat., March 17, 2018 (2 PM) 410 Sprints and Central PA Legends

Sat., March 24, 2018 (6 PM) 410 Sprints and 358 Sprints

CHAD TROUT SCORES CAREER FIRST IN “ICEBREAKER 30” SEASON OPENER AT LINCOLN SPEEDWAY;

410 SPRINTS, OPEN PRACTICE FOR OTHER DIVISIONS NEXT SATURDAY AFTERNOON

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 3/3/2018 – He’s won in super sportsman and 358 sprint cars, but Dover’s Chad Trout raced to his first career 410 sprint car win in Saturday’s season-opening $4,000-to-win “Icebreaker 30” at Lincoln Speedway.

By virtue of a top-10 redraw for the feature, Trout started on the outside of the front row to Lucas Wolfe who started on the pole. Wolfe led the opening lap, but, disaster struck for three of the top drivers as Wolfe suddenly slowed in turn 2, leading to a Brian Montieth spin collecting Danny Dietrich in the process. Dietrich and Wolfe were done for the day, handing the lead over to Trout.

From there Trout led the field until second-place invader Cole Duncan ran into the spinning cars of Scott Fisher and Cory Haas in turns three and four of lap five.

Brandon Rahmer caught Kyle Moody for send on the restart and chased him the rest of the way. But Rahmer’s father, Fred, may have unknowingly helped Chad to his first win.

“I saw Fred (Rahmer) walk out on the track, commented Trout about the 21st lap caution. “I slowed up as much as I could, and I saw him motion to Brandon to move up in turn one, so I rolled around the corner and looked at the track, and it was black-slick from the bottom to the top, so I’m like ‘I think I know what he means.’ So I just rolled the outside.

With that, Trout surged out in front on the race’s final restart and led the final nine laps and took the checkered 1.731 seconds in front for his inaugural 410 sprint win.

“All these people back here standing behind the car believe in me,” said Trout upon exiting his Jiffy Lube/Egg Farm No.1X in victory lane. “They believe in me more than I do. I owe it all to them. Jim (Walker) passed away last year, and I wanted to win for him. Randy Oberlander and his wife Steph bought the team and I couldn’t ask for better owners. All the people back here deserve it as much as I do.

At the checkered, Brandon Rahmer settled for second, with Moody third, Gerard McIntyre Jr. fourth, and Greg Hodnett fifth. Sixth through 10th were Freddie Rahmer (Who flipped in warm-ups and made repairs for his heat), Jim Siegle, hard charger Alan Krimes (who started 20th), Tim Glatfelter, and Glenndon Forsythe.

Montieth ended up coming back following the 2nd lap mishap to finish 11th.

“Clean air made a huge difference. These cars handle so different when you’re in traffic. Once I got out there and wasn’t behind any cars, I could run in twice as hard as what I could run it when it was behind cars. If I’d have been in traffic another ten laps, I would have been in trouble.”

Heats for the 20 410 Sprints were won by Danny Dietrich and Greg Hodnett.

“This is a tough sport. Track conditions kinda played in my favor. The wind’s horrible. You drive both ends of the track differently. I’m sure it was hard to pass in traffic. You couldn’t get through lapped cars, and they’re doing what they have to do. If someone would have been right on me, they should have been able to pass me. My crew chief Brandon is doing a great job, and I owe it all to the whole team.

Next Saturday, March 10th, Lincoln Speedway returns with another single-division 410 sprint car show. Then immediately afterwards an open practice session will be held for all regularly-scheduled divisions. Gates open at noon, with qualifying to begin at 2 PM.

In 2017, fans who purchased season general admission at the track saved a total of $147 over the actual day-of admission ticket prices.

And on the season pit admission side of the coin, purchasers in 2017 saved a whopping $372 over actual day-of admission prices!

Obviously, the purchase of a season pass can save fans and drivers a substantial amount of money and are well worth the purchase.

Orders may be placed by phone between the hours of 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays by contacting the speedway office at 717.527.2303.

Orders for 2018 season passes and seats may also be submitted by mail by sending a check or money order made payable to Port Royal Speedway, to: Port Royal Speedway, 308 W. Eighth Street, Port Royal, PA, 17082.

Regular weekly fanfare featuring the popular 410 sprints and the super late models will again be the norm next season with the season opener slated for Saturday, March 10 featuring both the 410 sprints and super late models in $4,000 to win and $2,200 to win features, respectively.

GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY TO OPEN. . .

12TH USAC AMSOIL NATIONAL SPRINT CAR SERIES EASTERN STORM THURSDAY, JUNE 14

BECHTELSVILLE, PA – One of the hottest tickets of the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill season, the wingless warriors of the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car Championship kick off their only East Coast tour at Grandview Speedway on Thursday night, June 14. The tradition continues as the Thunder Series opens this wildly popular annual tour.

In 2007, Thunder on the Hill special events promoter, Bob Miller and the Rogers Family, brought the nation’s longest touring Sprint Car group back to Pennsylvania after a nearly 30-year absence from the region.

“I vividly remember USAC being such an integral part of the Reading Fairgrounds history,” Miller recollects. “In some ways, my love of Reading made me so passionate about bringing USAC back to the east coast and specifically back to Berks County at Grandview.”

USAC came back in full force and remains one of the must-see events of the racing season.

Forty Eastern Storm events have been held since the debut of the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car Championship in 2007. Levi Jones and Bryan Clauson are tied with the most wins of Eastern Storm history with six victories each. Five different drivers reached victory lane in 2017 – three for the first time in Storm history -- while Chris Windom went on to win the Eastern Storm Championship.

Heading into the 12th Eastern Storm, the Bechtelsville, PA 1/3-mile dirt track opens the tour with the Jesse Hockett Classic, a 40 lap battle for the non-wing 410 sprint cars. Joining the program will be the popular 358 NASCAR Modifieds. Gates open at 5 PM wit race time set or 7:30 PM. Grandview and Thunder on the Hill are the only facility to have held a USAC event in every year of Eastern Storm history. Defending winner of this event on the hill is Brady Bacon.

The series heads to Mechanicsburg, PA’s Williams Grove Speedway on Friday, June 15, while Port Royal Speedway brings the series into night number three on Saturday, June 16.

York Haven, PA’s Susquehanna Speedway lands on the schedule for the sixth consecutive year, on Sunday, June 17. For the first time, United States Auto Club drivers head to Bridgeport Speedway on Monday, June 18 and the Storm concludes on Tuesday, June 19 at Weedsport Speedway.

Past Eastern Storm winners like Robert Ballou – who swept all three 2015 events, Brady Bacon – who holds wins at Grandview Speedway and Port Royal Speedway, Chad Boespflug, and Chase Stockon are expected for competition.

The Eastern Storm kicks off on Thursday, June 14 with the Jesse Hockett Classic – dedicated to the memory of the 2009 Grandview race winner. Joining the USAC non-wing Sprint Cars are Grandview’s popular 358 Modifieds.

Key sponsors are returning for the 29th season of the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series. Joining NAPA Auto Parts is Pioneer Pole Buildings, Levan Machine and Truck Equipment, Quaker Steak & Lube, GALCO Business Communications and Eli’s Auto Parts.

Advance tickets for the Grandview Speedway USAC/358 Modified event are available by calling 443-513-4456. Callers are required to leave their name, phone number, and the number of tickets requested. Callers can then pick-up and pay for their tickets at the Grandview Speedway’s Will-Call Window after 4 PM. Advance ticket holders may enter the grandstands at 4:30 PM – a full 30 minutes before tickets go on sale to the public.

Grandview Speedway is located at 43 Passmore Road, Bechtelsville, PA just minutes off Route 100.

Several crews continue to work through the winter months installing guardrail, fencing, bleachers, lighting, public address system and infrastructure additions along with renovating buildings, parking lots, and access roads.

We would like to thank all of the contractors and volunteers who have been working through the winter months to complete this exciting project for 2018.”

Grandstand gates on Opening Day will open at 4 p.m. with pit gates at 3 p.m. Race time will be 6 p.m.

Officials scheduled a pre-season practice day for any division of race car that will be competing at the track in 2018 Saturday, March 31, from 1-4 p.m.

The annual Motorsports Show at the Susquehanna Valley Mall is slated for Sunday, Feb. 25 through Friday, March 2. Teams can register their race cars for the show starting after Jan. 1 by emailing publicrelations@selinsgrovespeedway.com or calling 570.523.8420.

Williams Grove Speedway to Hold Al Hamilton Tribute Race

Story BY: Justin Snyder

On August 31, 2018, Williams Grove Speedway will host a race honoring one of the area’s most successful owners in Al Hamilton. The Al Hamilton Tribute Race for the 410 Sprint Cars will pay $4770 to the night’s winner and $400 to start.

The event will be a Hoosier Racing Tire Diamond Series race and will feature an extended point fund for the top 5 finishing drivers. Also on the bill for the night will be the 360 Sprint Cars sanctioned by the United Racing Club Series and the Patriot Sprint Tour. The Eastern Museum of Motor Racing will host a display focusing on the many Hamilton owned cars, drivers and history with fans also being treaated to fireworks.

Past drivers will be on hand to honor the famed owner and sign autographs along with possible retro paint schemes to be run for the night’s event.

“As a track that prides ourselves in our history, we feel it very important to honor those who have played an instrumental part in making Williams Grove Speedway the track it is today,” said speedway general manager Justin Loh, “All Hamilton is the winningest car owner in the history of Williams Grove Speedway and it’s an honor to pass on his legacy to our fans and drivers for one night.”

A 2003 Inductee to the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame and Museum, Hamilton and his Red #77 were synonymous with Central PA Sprint Car racing. At Williams Grove specifically Hamilton captured 8 owner track championships, 4 National Open titles and over 80 race victories.

Hamilton first became a 410 Sprint Car owner during the 1967 season after a brief stint as a driver. His first driver was Mus Weyant.

For the next 40 plus season, Hamilton’s car was driven by the who’s who of sprint car racing. Notable drivers to find success in the car throughout the 70’s included Bobby Adamson, Smokey Snellbaker, Jan Opperman, Lynn Paxton, Kramer Williamson and Mitch Smith.

Hamilton stepped away from racing for 6 years in 1976 before returning in 1983 with Paxton at the helm. Paxton would go on to win the Williams Grove National Open that season before retiring. As an owner he finished out the 80’s with over 80 feature victories thanks to Keith Kauffman.

In 1989 Hamilton hired a young Stevie Smith and in 1990 the duo took to the World of Outlaws Tour for 4 ½ seasons, racking up over 40 feature wins and nearly winning the 1993 Knoxville Nationals. Future Outlaw standouts Danny Lasoski, Jeff Sheppard, Johnny Herrera and Joe Gaerte would take turns wheeling the car on the road before Hamilton returned to Central PA in 1996.

Dave Calaman picked up a victory for Hamilton in a brief stint in the car before Fred Rahmer was hired as the driver. Together they became one of the most consistent and powerful forces in Central PA until 2001 where Lance Dewease became his driver.

Current driver of the Heffner Motorsports #27, Greg Hodnett, piloted the #77 for two seasons in 2005 and 2006. After a successful few years in Central PA driving for Bob Stewart and a brief return to the World of Outlaws, it was with Hamilton that Hodnett, a Memphis native, became a full-fledged member of the PA Posse.

“It was a great opportunity to get to drive such a historic car that was not only a large fixture in Central PA racing, but Sprint Car racing as a whole,” said Hodnett. “Getting to be apart of the legacy that is Al Hamilton and strapping into his car, if I wasn’t already looked at as a PA Posse guy, I’d say that just about cemented me as a local. I’ve since made my home in PA and I guess in a way that’s thanks to Al and I’m really proud of my time in the car.”

While winning is always the goal each night Hodnett and his team pull into the pits, it would be an extra special moment if he were to capture the victory in this race.

“One of the coolest moments for me as a driver was driving the Hamilton #77 to victory lane at Williams Grove Speedway on Al’s 77th birthday,” said Hodnett. “His whole family was there and it was just a really special night to end up on the front stretch with that checkered flag and see Al beaming ear to ear.”

“I look back on that moment and how cool it was to be apart of that and it really be a cool moment to take home the victory in honor of him again in this special race.”

Aaron Ott most recently piloted a Hamilton sponsored red #77 car in the 2011 racing season.

General admission prices for the night’s event will be $18 for adults and $10 for youth. More details regarding potential tributes and drivers attending will be released in the near future.

 

 

Williams Grove to Hold Walt Dyer Tribute Race

Central Pennsylvania dirt racing is filled with a lot of history. The list of drivers who have ran a sprint car at one of the various tracks spread throughout the area is filled with the "who's who" of the sport.

Even more impressive is the listing of team owners who have provided the drivers the opportunity to race and the fans the opportunity to cheer on their favorite driver on any given night.

On May 25, 2018, Williams Grove Speedway will host a race honoring one of the area’s most successful owners in Walt Dyer. The Walt Dyer Tribute Race for the 410 Sprint Cars will pay $4610 to the night’s winner and $400 to start.

The event will be a Hoosier Diamond Series race and will feature an extended point fund for the top 5 finishing drivers. Also on the bill for the night will be the PASS IMCA 305 Sprint Cars along with a display from the Eastern Museum of Motor Racing focusing on the many “Brickmobile” cars, drivers and history.

Past drivers will be on hand to honor the famed owner and sign autographs along with possible retro paint schemes to be run for the night’s event.

“As a track that prides ourselves in our history, we feel it very important to honor those who have played an instrumental part in making Williams Grove Speedway the track it is today,” said speedway general manager Justin Loh, “Not only will this race allow us to celebrate what Walt Dyer and what his drivers brought to Central PA racing, but it will allow us to educate the younger generation as well. I think this is a great addition to the schedule for a very worthy man.”

Dyer began owning sprint cars in the area in 1967. His “Brickmobile” Dyer Masonry #461 is one of the most iconic paint schemes to ever run and played host to various drivers throughout a 30 plus year stint before retiring from full-time competition in 1998-99.

No driver accomplished more behind the wheel of the car as Fayetteville’s Lance Dewease. First teaming up in 1991 and racing together for 7 ½ years, Dewease and Dyer captured 132 feature victories. No bigger of a win came than the 1996 World of Outlaws sanctioned Williams Grove National Open where the duo became to only non-outlaw regular to sweep the Outlaws 2 nights that season.

Dewease currently drives the Don Kreitz Jr. owned 69k and has already penciled in the event for their 2018 schedule. He’s credits Dyer with jumpstarting his career and is looking forward to racing in honor of him.

“Walt deserves an event like this. He did a lot for our sport for many years and especially me as a driver,” said Dewease. “When I got in his car, he was taking a big chance on a young kid who didn’t have much of a resume at the time. Without him, I wouldn’t be where I am today.”

Dewease looks back fondly on his time racing for Dyer. With 87 career victories at “The Grove”, he’s 3 short of tying Fred Rahmer for first on the all-time 410 feature winner list. With many of them happening while driving the #461, Dewease would love nothing more than to move one step closer to that feat by taking home the checkered flag that night.

“We were always pretty good wherever we went, but we won a ton of races at Williams Grove during that time period,” said Dewease. “Walt was everything you could ask for in an owner and let me drive the way I wanted and always gave me the equipment I needed to be successful. “

“We were able to build ourselves into a pretty good team in 7 ½ years that I think we ranked among the best in the entire country during our time together. I’m extremely proud of our accomplishments and I’m looking forward to paying tribute that night to a great man. It be a pretty special moment to win that race and I’m really looking forward to the night.”

General admission prices for the night’s event will be $18 for adults and $10 for youth. More details regarding potential tributes and drivers attending will be released in the near future.

 

 

World Series of Dirt Racing Slated For October 11-14

One of the East Coast's Biggest Events - Ever - Coming to Selinsgrove Speedway

Myerstown, PA - The month of October is typically stocked with big, end of the season races. In 2018, there will be a new addition to the list of big money events...and this one will knock your socks off!

Action Track USA's Rich Tobias and Doug Rose are teaming up with Selinsgrove Speedway's Mike Heffner to present the first World Series of Dirt Track Racing from October 11 - 14, and it will be contested on the big, fast Selinsgrove half-mile as well as the smaller Selinsgrove Raceway Park.

This monster event will be a dirt racing fan's dream, as practically every division that competes on clay will be part of the World Series of Dirt Track Racing. Three different classes of Sprint Cars - 410's, 360's, and the 305's - will be on the docket along with the USAC All Pro SpeedSTRs, the 602 Modifieds, the Super Late Models, and Street Stocks. And, in an unprecedented venture, Tobias, Rose, and Heffner are also adding the AMA Flat Track Motorcycles to the mega-card of motorsports merriment.

While the big cars and bikes will do battle on the ultra fast half mile oval, the immensely popular small car divisions have not been forgotten by the organizers of the WSoDR. Friday and Saturday night, October 12 & 13, will see the Action Track USA Hyper Racing 600 Sprints, All Star Slingshots, and Junior Slingshots competing on the racey bullring known as Selinsgrove Raceway Park on the inside of the big track.

Tobias and Rose envision more than 300 cars in the pits and on the speedway's during the course of the weekend. The total purse will be well over $100,000, with big dollars on the line for each division. "With the money that will be up for grabs and all the different classes in action during the weekend, fans can expect to see many of the top names in local and national motorsports," said Rose. "And we're certain that several drivers will take advantage of this unique opportunity to enter multiple classes."

Enhancements to the facility are already underway, with many of the projects geared toward next October's World Series of Dirt Racing. For example, the infield will not only be ready to accept fans for the first time, but camping will also be permitted in the spacious infield during the weekend extravaganza.

The tentative schedule for the WSoDR will have various activities occurring day and night for fans' enjoyment. Thursday, October 11 is move-in day for campers and competitors. On Friday the 12th, the Super Late Models, 360 Sprints, and SpeedSTRs will qualify, as will the AMA Motorcycles. Those divisions will race on Saturday afternoon, as all of the weekend's activity on the half-mile oval will take place from noon to 5 p.m. One of Saturday's highlights will be the World Series 100 for the SpeedSTRs, featuring live pit stops and a $9,000 paycheck going to the winner.

Following Saturday afternoon's competition, the 602 Modifieds, Street Stocks, and 305 Sprint Cars will qualify. They will race, along with the 410 Sprint Cars, on Sunday afternoon.

As mentioned, the wingless 600 Sprints, All Star Slingshots, and Junior Slingshots will spray the clay on Friday and Saturday evening on the competitive Selinsgrove Raceway Park bullring. These events will permit fans and other racers to sit back and enjoy some intense wheel-to-wheel action presented by the stars of tomorrow and the very best throttle-jockeys in their respective divisions.

Additional information regarding this colossal event will be released in the coming weeks and months as details are finalized. Stay tuned to the Selinsgrove Speedway website and the World Series of Dirt Facebook page.

Williams Grove Speedway, located in Mechanicsburg, Pa. will host its maiden ASCS National Tour event in conjunction with the United Racing Club (URC) plus a complete program of 410 Sprint Car racing on Friday, May 4.

“This will be a great opportunity for our fans to see one of the nation’s top touring Sprint Car groups at Williams Grove and Selinsgrove,” said Williams Grove general manager Justin Loh. “This will be one of the must-see weekends of racing with URC’s participation and several of our weekly 410 sprint drivers expected to compete in both divisions.”

“We’re excited to bring the ASCS to two historic tracks for one blockbuster weekend of Sprint Car racing,” said Selinsgrove Speedway general manager Steve Inch. “Selinsgrove is the only track in Pennsylvania that features weekly 360 Sprint Car racing and hosting the ASCS National Tour will be one of the highlights of the 2018 season.”

Sam Hafertepe Jr., of Sunnyvale, Texas, is the two-time defending Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour champion. He scored 15 A-main feature wins this year and collected $60,000 for his second career title. Hafertepe is expected to return to the series next year and chase the three-peat.

Just as the last several seasons, all season admission passes and season seats are only good for circle-track auto racing events again in 2018 at Port Royal Speedway. Any other grandstand events such as tractor pulls and demolition derbies are not included.

In 2017, fans who purchased season general admission at the track saved a total of $147 over the actual day-of admission ticket prices.

And on the season pit admission side of the coin, purchasers in 2017 saved a whopping $372 over actual day-of admission prices!

Obviously, the purchase of a season pass can save fans and drivers a substantial amount of money and are well worth the purchase.

Orders may be placed by phone between the hours of 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays by contacting the speedway office at 717.527.2303.

Orders for 2018 season passes and seats may also be submitted by mail by sending a check or money order made payable to Port Royal Speedway, to: Port Royal Speedway, 308 W. Eighth Street, Port Royal, PA, 17082.

Regular weekly fanfare featuring the popular 410 sprints and the super late models will again be the norm next season with the season opener slated for Saturday, March 10 featuring both classes.

Season seats will again be priced at just $50 for the 2018 season.

Current seat holders will have until February 1, 2018 to renew their existing seats for the new season before those seats are put up for sale upon non-renewal. .

MONTIETH CLAIMS SIXTH TRACK CHAMPIONSHIP IN LINCOLN 410 SPRINTS;

Adrian Shaffer earns first Lincoln title in 358 sprint division

YORK, PA, 11/18/17 - Lincoln Speedway track champions were recognized and special year-end awards were handed out at the Wyndham Garden York Hotel Saturday night, November 18th. The top ten finishers in the season-long point series for both sprint car divisions were recognized and special awards were distributed in the annual awards banquet, which officially closed the 2017 racing season.

MONTIETH WINS TWICE TO CLAIM SIXTH LAWRENCE CHEVROLET TRACK CHAMPIONSHIP

Phoenixville’s Brian Montieth rode the strength of two wins and 15 top-ten finishes in 21 races to claim his sixth Lincoln track title. His second win of the season came on July 29th, continuing his climb to legendary status, when he came from 12th starting spot to win the non-stop feature. In true Montieth fashion, it included a thrilling three-car pass from fourth to first in one lap.

When reminded that it was his 55th career Lincoln win, pulling him to within one of the great Bobby Abel for fifth on the all-time win list, Montieth said, “That something that 30 years ago, I would never even have thought of. Thirty-five years ago, I didn’t even know this place existed!”

Thirteen of those 15 top-ten finishes were actually top fives. Montieth is currently the winningest active driver at Lincoln. His sixth title is third to only Fred Rahmer (11) and Steve Smith (9). Montieth’s title also earned Scott Zellers Lincoln’s mechanic of-the-year award.

2014 and 2016 track champ Alan Krimes scored five top-five finishes and 12 top-ten finishes to stay close enough in points to take the season championship down to the final week and secure a runner-up finish.

Montieth and Krimes have traded track titles the past five years, and Krimes has finished second in season points several times.

It was quite a year for Dover’s Chad Trout, who was extremely consistent to finish third in season points. Despite losing popular car owner Jimmy Walker, who passed away during mid-season, Trout scored two top-five and 13 top-ten finishes to edge out Jim Siegel by a mere 20 points and Freddie Rahmer by 25 points at season’s end.

Though Trout and Siegel both went winless on the season, 2017 Williams Grove champ Freddie Rahmer won twice.

Sixth through tenth in season points were Cory Haas, Tim Glatfelter, Gerard McIntyre, Jr. (whose lone win came on April 8th), Glenndon Forsythe (who won on John Gleim Excavating Night July 15th and scored his first career All-Star win on August 19th), and Brandon Rahmer.

Lincoln’s winningest driver in 2017 was Danny Dietrich, who crossed under the checkers seven times, including the first two shows of the year, Weldon Sterner Memorial April 29th, National Fallen Firefighters Night June 10th, and Kevin Gobrecht Memorial Pennsylvania Speedweek show on July 1st.

Despite missing a few shows to do some traveling, Dietrich still finished 11th in season points.

First-time Lincoln winners during the 2017 season included David Gravel (World of Outlaw win on May 17th), Anthony Macri (June 3rd), and Kyle Larson (Pennsylvania Speedweek winner on July 3rd), who competed at Lincoln while leading the Monster Energy NASCAR point series at the time.

Other Lincoln wins in 2017 were recorded by Lucas Wolfe (two wins) and single-race winners Lance Dewease (who claimed the $20,000 top prize in the “Dirt Classic”) and J.J. Grasso (who won the season finale).

Anthony Macri was voted by track officials as the most improved driver for 2017, with Glenndon Forsythe awarded the annual Harry Fletcher Sportsmanship Award. Cole Young, who moved up to the 410 sprints from the 358s after a year off, received the rookie of-the-year award.

All told, there were 11 different winners in 21 races at Lincoln in 2017.

SPECIAL AWARDS WINNERS (410 Sprints)

Super Sprint Champion – Brian Montieth

Mechanic of the Year – Scott Zellers

Rookie of the Year – Cole Young

Most Improved Driver – Glenndon Forsythe

Harry Fletcher Sportsmanship Award – Anthony Macri

ADRIAN SHAFFER CLAIMS FIRST-EVER LINCOLN SPEEDWAY KEIZER ALUMINUM WHEELS TRACK CHAMPIONSHIP

Despite not winning a race, Hallam’s Adrian Shaffer claimed his first track title in Lincoln’s 358 sprint car division. Shaffer was consistent throughout the year, leading the division with 14 top-ten finishes and eight top-fives in 17 races.

An exciting season-long points chase would likely have gone down to the final week had Doug Hammaker not been injured in a post-race crash on the next-to-last event of the year, dropping him from a close second to sixth in the final points tally.

Single race winner Brent Shearer finished second in season points, with five top-five and nine top-ten finishes.

Third through fifth in season points were separated by only 30 points, with two of the drivers tied for fourth.

Finished third was Todd Rittenhouse, Jr., with Matt Findley and Cody Fletcher tied in fourth. None of the three won a race in 2017.

Doug Hammaker settled for sixth in season points. He was one of four drivers to win twice during the season.

He was followed by Dalton Dietrich, Harry Fletcher Sportsmanship Award winner Phil Walter (a one time winner), and lady drivers Brie Hershey (a one-time winner) and Ashley Cappetta (voted the 358 sprint most improved driver of the year).

Defending track champ Chandler Leiby missed a few weeks due to vacation and injury, did score one win during the year, and finished 11th in season points.

Drivers who picked up their first Lincoln career wins in 2017 were Jordan Givler and Lincoln rookie of-the-year Steve Wilbur.

Two-time winners included Chris Arnold (back-to-back wins in June), Jeff Halligan, and Todd Gracey. Other ’17 winners were Dwight Leppo, Kevin Nouse, and Chase Dietz (season finale).

All told, there were 13 different winners in 17 events. It took 11 shows for Lincoln to see its first repeat winner in 2017.

SPECIAL AWARDS WINNERS (358 Sprints)

358 Sprint Champion – Adrian Shaffer

Rookie of the Year – Steve Wilbur

Most Improved Driver – Ashley Cappetta

Harry Fletcher Sportsmanship Award – Phil Walter

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY AWARDS BANQUET HONORED YEAR’S TOP PERFORMING RACE TEAMS SATURDAY

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Selinsgrove Speedway & Raceway Park closed out the 2017 season Saturday evening, Nov. 11, with the awards banquet at the historic Genetti Hotel in Williamsport for about 250 guests representing the 360 sprint car, super late model, pro stock, roadrunner, and go kart divisions.

This year’s top performing drivers received trophies, jackets, commemorative championship rings sponsored by Foss Jewelers, and shared a $25,000-plus point fund.

Davie Franek of Wantage, N.J., clinched his first career Mach 1 Chassis 360 sprint car track championship with 12 top five finishes including three feature wins at Selinsgrove. He became the ninth different sprint car champion since the speedway switched to weekly 358-360 sprint car competition in 2001. Franek is also a former two-time United Racing Club champion.

In the Jeff’s Auto Body & Recycling Center super late models, Tony Adams of Sunbury and Hayes Mattern of Beavertown were named co-champions when they tied for the title in the final points race of the season Aug. 26

For Adams, the championship was the second of his career at Selinsgrove with one victory and 8 top five finishes. Mattern became the first driver to win a championship in karting at Selinsgrove Raceway Park and advance to Selinsgrove’s half-mile track and clinch a super late model title. Mattern had a break-out season with 7 top five finishes, including three feature wins.

Tommy Slanker of York clinched his first career A&A Auto Stores pro stock title with seven feature wins, the most of any driver in any division at the track this season. Slanker became the 13th different driver to win a championship in 20 years of pro stock racing at Selinsgrove.

Keith Bissinger of Orangeville and Will Brunson of Middleburg were also co-champions in the Collier Paving/A&A Auto Stores roadrunner division when they too tied in the final points race of the year. Bissinger clinched his fifth career title without a victory this season, while Brunson scored his first championship along with his first career win in his rookie season.

Michael Thomas of Emmaus clinched the 358 sprint car challenge series title.

Rookie of the Year awards went to Justin Whittall of Southampton Lane, N.J. (sprint cars); Nathan Long of Middleburg (late models); Shaun Lawton of Bloomsburg (pro stocks); and Will Brunson of Middleburg (roadrunners). Jim Collier of Shamokin received the Joe Whitcomb Memorial Sportsman of the Year award.

This year’s dual point championship ties marked only the fourth and fifth times for ties in Selinsgrove Speedway history. The last points championship tie at the track occurred in 2000 between 410 sprint car drivers Todd Shaffer and Keith Kauffman. The sprint car division also had a championship tie in 1964 between Dick Tobias and Leroy Felty. The late model division's only other title tie was in 1980 between Dale Kerstetter and Bob Smith.

On hand to accept a special recognition award in appreciation for his dedication to the future of auto racing at Selinsgrove Speedway was Gary Greiner, member of the Selinsgrove Fair Association.

The 2017 Selinsgrove Raceway Park go kart champions were Wyatt Tressler (kid karts), Dalton Bachman (rookies I cage), Ashton Gonder (rookies II cage), Brooklynn Peters (rookies I), Pat Romig (adult cage animal), Chase Keister (jr. cage), Trevor Teats (clone 375s), Kruz Kepner (jr. restricted), Brandon Haines (adult cage flat), Steve Kerstetter (mediums), Dennis Tanner (extra heavies), and Adam Barge (flat 350s), Mariah Romig (senior clone cage), Todd Benny (clone 340s), and Kaiden Goshorn (red clone cage).

Off-season improvements include moving the pit area outside of the half-mile track and adding screened clay to the turns.

LANCE DEWEASE WINS SPRINT SHOWDOWN AT SUSQUEHANNA

Chase Dietz Gets Second 358 Sprint Win By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA…10/28/17

Lance Dewease survived some mid-race drama with Logan Schuchart before capturing the big $5,000 payday in Saturday’s 30-lap BAPS Auto Paints and Supplies 410 Sprint Showdown at Susquehanna Speedway.

The event closed the curtain on the 2017 racing season at Susquehanna and in Central Pennsylvania.

Chase Dietz dominated the 25-lap 358 Sprint car feature for his second win of the season.

After setting quick time and winning the Dash, World of Outlaws regular Logan Schuchart took control of the 410 Sprint car feature as Joey Saldana settled into the runner-up spot.

As Schuchart set the pace, a lap four incident brought out a yellow flag when contact was made between Danny Dietrich and Greg Hodnett that also collected Freddie Rahmer and Cory Haas. Heavy damage to Hodnett’s car sidelined him for the day as was Dietrich and Rahmer.

On the restart, Anthony Fiore brought out a red flag after flipping.

Saldana got high on the restart allowing Lucas Wolfe and Dewease by as Dewease began his charge to the front after starting sixth.

Dewease made the race winning pass on Schuchart with 14 laps complete but action got heated when Schuchart attempted to get back around Dewease but ran over the front end causing front wing damage to the Kreitz Racing 69K machine. After some dramatics while the field was under caution, Schuchart pitted with a flat tire and rejoined the rear of the field.

Despite the damage, Dewease was able to keep Saldana at bay for the remainder of the event to score his 19th career Susquehanna win, 13th overall this season and second of the year at the York Haven oval.

Saldana finished second ahead of Wolfe, ninth starting Brock Zearfoss and 10th starting Brian Montieth with Mark Smith earning the Hard Charger coming from 18th to sixth ahead of Anthony Macri, Haas from the rear of the field, Brandon Rahmer and Schuchart.

Schuchart set fast time over the 30 car field with a lap of 15.655 seconds while heat races were won by Dewease, Ryan Smith and Dietrich. Brett Michalski won the consolation.

Dave Brown, Jr. led the first two laps of the 358 Sprint car main before Dietz took control and never looked back.

A late race red for a flip by Jake Eldreth would close the field on the Spring Grove racer but he was not to be denied the win as he took the checkered flag.

Brent Shearer raced by Kevin Nouse on the final turn to steal the runner-up finish with Nouse, who started 12th settling for third over Chris Frank and 10th starter Brett Wanner with Cody Fletcher earning the Hard Charger after starting 20th, Tyler Ross, Mike Bittinger, Troy Wagaman, Jr. and Brown completing the top ten.

Nouse, Wanner and Eldreth won heats for the 31 car field. CJ Tracy was the consolation race winner.

Zearfoss, Hodnett And Bishop Close Port Royal Season With Wins

10/21/17

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – With over 80 sprint cars in the pit area, Port Royal Speedway capped off the highly successful 2017 season on Saturday night with Brock Zearfoss, Greg Hodnett and Austin Bishop claiming the 410 sprint, URC sprint and 305 sprint mains, respectively.

In the 25-lap 410 sprint main, polesitter Dylan Cisney beat Brock Zearfoss into the first turn only to see Zearfoss take the lead as the pair shot onto the backchute.

The reigning 2017 track champion, Zearfoss of Jonestown set a blistering pace around the oval during the early going, entering the backmarkers on the seventh tour with Cisney and fourth starter Danny Dietrich in tow.

At the halfway point, Zearfoss had a 1.1 second lead over Cisney as the race for second heated up between Cisney and Dietrich.

After repeated attempts, Dietrich was able to secure second spot and complete lap 18 just before the only caution flag of the race unfurled for a stopped Kody Lehman.

Dietrich followed Zearfoss high into the first corner when action resumed and then made his swooping attempt for the lead as the pair shot into the third turn.

However the Gettysburg driver came up short of completing his slide job attempt in the fourth turn and instead settled into second, where he would finish.

The $4,000 victory was the fifth of the season at the Port Royal oval for Zearfoss who took the checkers by a 1.926 second advantage.

Anthony Macri of Dillsburg rode home a fine third followed by Cisney and Jason Shultz.

Sixth through 10th went to 18th starter Greg Hodnett, Lucas Wolfe, Steve Buckwalter, Davey Sammons and Cory Haas.

Heats went to Macri, Zearfoss, Justin Barger and Shultz in what was two rounds of heats for each of two heat groups.

Lucas Wolfe led the first lap of the 25-lap URC sprint main before fourth starter Chad Layton took over and entered lapped traffic on the sixth tour.

Greg Hodnett started seventh in the field and bolted to the front of the race with lightning speed during the early going, up to third with five laps recorded.

As Layton worked through traffic, Hodnett rapidly closed the gap on the two leaders before pulling off a high-flying two-car pass of both Wolfe and Layton for position plus at least one backmarker in the third and fourth turns of the ninth lap.

And once at the front, Hodnett drove off from the field only to be slowed by the caution flag with nine laps to go.

Wolfe got a clean shot on the restart only to see Hodnett drive off before another yellow with six laps to go again bunched the field.

Another restart produced the same result with Hodnett staying out front only this time 10th starter Brock Zearfoss motored by Wolfe into second before trying to run down the pacesetter.

Zearfoss did his best to close the gap but came up short at the finish by .537 seconds.

Wolfe was third followed by Curt Michael and Mark Smith.

Sixth through 10th went to Jason Shultz, Justin Barger, 21st starter Chuck Hebing, Layton and Josh Weller.

Heats went to Wolfe, Hodnett, Chris Coyle and Barger with Hebing scoring the consolation race.

With the win, Hodnett scored $2,000 and also swept both URC events held at Port Royal in 2017.

Austin Bishop of Elverson wired the 20-lap 305 sprint main with a flag to flag performance.

The only caution of the race took place with just one lap to go and it produced a wild final lap and a four-car race for the win back to the line.

Jeff Miller restarted second with Nate Gramley and 12th starter Kyle Smith following and Miller went for the lead when action resumed.

But Bishop moved down to block his advance on the backstretch and Miller climbed his tail tank before jerking sideways toward the inside fence and then somehow saving the car.

This bottled up Gramley and allowed Smith to motor by both he and Miller during the final half lap.

Miller crossed the line in third followed by Gramley and Cale Riegle.

Sixth through 10th went to Dylan Shatzer, Nick Sweigart, Kassidy Kreitz, Scott Lutz and Drew Ritchey.

Heats went to Miller, Shatzer and Smith with the consolation race going to Brad Mellott.

Smith’s Susky win backs up his big win a week earlier in IMCA Sprint action at nearby Port Royal.

Four first time season winners also emerged Saturday night as Bobby Beard won the Bernheisel Race Cars 358 Late Models, Randy Zechman took the win in the Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stocks, Bill Powell won the Superior Homes Extreme Stocks and Robbie Carroll got the win in the Road Warriors.

Starting on the pole aboard his No. 17NY Sprint, Smith dominated the event that saw him pull away to a 2.765 margin of victory. Two early race cautions was all that kept the field close as Smith became the eighth different winner in the nine 305 Sprint car mains in 2017.

Darren Miller chased Smith the entire distance and settled for second over Dave Grube, Ken Duke, Jr. and Billy Ney with Jaremi Hanson, 2017 Susquehanna track champion Zach Newlin, Rick Stief, Colby Dice and Stephanie Dodson completing the top ten finishers.

Kyle Ganoe, Andrew Hake and Miller were heat winners for the 25 cars.

Donnie Hendershot was the Artwerks Hard Charger coming from 18th to 12th.

Brian Shuey led the first 11 laps of the 20-lap BRC 358 Late Model main when sixth-starting Bobby Beard took control.

Once out front, it was all Beard as he pulled away from the field to post his first win of the year by 2.968 seconds. He became the 11th different winner this season in late model action.

Shuey, Eric Hohol, 2017 track champion Randy Christine, Jr and Sean Merkel finished in the top five trailed by Steve Billet, Tim Murphy, Dan Zechman, Steve Todorow and Taylor Farlling. Murphy was Artwerks Hard Charger.

Hohol and Beard were heat winners for the 15-car field.

It was all Randy Zechman in the 20-lap Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Poos Street Stock feature after taking the lead with nine laps complete.

Mike Buckley led lap one before Kyle Saylor took the lead and held that point until fifth starting Zechman took over.

Zechman drove away taking checkered flag by 4.202 seconds for his first win of the year and 12th different division winner.

Jim Palm came from eighth to finish second ahead of Saylor, Mike Potts and Kevin Sigler with Jimmy Combs, Brad Bingaman, Elvin Brennan, Howard Williams and Matt Wampler completing the top ten.

With his 11th place finish, division sponsor Craig Morgan captured the 2017 Street Stock track championship.

Heats for the 19 cars were won by Buckley and Zechman.

Bill Powell emerged with his first career Susquehanna win and 100th career overall win as he was in the right place at the right time in the Superior Homes Extreme Stock feature.

Racing third as the white flag flew, Powell had a front row seat when 2017 track champion Alex Updegraff got into Kyle Emig, who led laps 2 through 19 and spun him. The two raced side by side for half of the race but the contact put both to the back as Powell held on for the win on the final lap over Patrick McClane, Travis Horan, 13th starting and Artwerks Hard Charger John Frye and Jeff Gill were the top five.

Johnny Palm and Emig won heats for the 19 Extreme Stocks.

Robbie Carroll led all 15 laps to win the Road Warrior feature over Travis Brown, Kyle Rohrbaugh, Ryan Underkoffler and Justin Dashler.

Susquehanna Speedway returns to action this weekend with a big two day show in the 14th annual Sunoco/Insinger Performance Nationals fueled by Millers Racing Parts.

Friday night, October 20 will feature qualifying for the Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stocks along with complete shows for the Extreme Stocks, Road Warriors, Central PA Legends, Stock 600CC Micro Sprints and Penmar Cars. Friday race time is 6:30PM.

Saturday night will be highlighted with the Street Stock 50 along with complete programs for the Extreme stocks, Road Warriors, Central PA Legends, Stock 600 CC Micro Sprints, Sportsman Modifieds, E-Mods and BFTP Cars. Racing Saturday begins at 5PM.

Schatz Tames Port Royal For 19th Outlaws Win Of Season, Second Career At Oval

10/14/17

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Eight-time World of Outlaws champion Donny Schatz of Fargo, Nd., tamed Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night, scoring his second career oval victory, worth $10,000 after holding off Lance Dewease to the finish.

In the 25-lap Mid Atlantic Modified main it was Mike Altobelli scoring the $1,000 victory.

Reigning 2017 track champion Brock Zearfoss started on the pole of the 30-lap World of Outlaws main for sprint cars flanked by Jason Sides with Schatz starting in third and Dewease starting in ninth spot.

Zearfoss of Jonestown took the lead at the start over Sides however Schatz motored into second on the third lap as Zearfoss held a 1.669 second lead.

Alone out front, Zearfoss was setting a blistering pace and entered the rear of the field on the seventh tour with Schatz in tow and Dewease up to fourth.

Zearfoss worked his way through traffic in fine fashion over the next seven laps and was keeping Schatz at bay, still holding a one second lead when the races first caution flag unfurled on the 14th tour for a stopped Logan Schuchart.

Zearfoss chose the inside lane for the double file restart with Schatz in second and Dewease restarting third with Brad Sweet in fourth.

And Zearfoss turned in a great restart when action resumed, outracing Schatz into the first corner and turning back a slide job attempt by Schatz for the lead.

However racing close with Schatz, nose to tail at times, proved hard to handle for Zearfoss as the pair raced into the second half of the race and on the 18th tour when Zearfoss entered in the middle in the first turn, leaving the top lane open, that was all Schatz needed to blast into control.

Moments after taking the lead, on the 19th lap, the second caution flag of the race appeared regrouping the pack, this time finding Schatz choosing the inside pin for the restart.

Dewease blasted into second on the restart, coming up .67 seconds behind Schatz at the line with 10 to go but was then outdistanced by Schatz during the waning laps before a final yellow flag set up a dramatic finish.

When green reappeared, Schatz went high into the first turn and Dewease blasted in low, going out in front briefly as he let the car slide up across the track to get command.

However Schatz would later credit Dewease with allowing just enough room for him to jet back by as the pair shot out of the second turn and that sealed the deal for Schatz, who went on to pick up his 19th overall checkers of the season by .792 seconds ahead of Dewease.

After starting 10th, Daryn Pittman finished on the podium in third followed by Sweet and Johnson.

Sixth through 10th went to Dave Blaney, Danny Dietrich, Sheldon Haudenschild, Jac Haudenschild and David Gravel.

Heats for the 40-car field went to Jason Johnson, Sheldon Haudenschild, Sweet and Schatz with Tony Stewart claiming the B Main and Zearfoss winning the dash.

Overall fast time in qualifications was set by Jason Johnson with a lap time of 15.704 seconds, an average speed of 114.162 mph.

Rick Hulson led the first six laps of the Mid Atlantic Modified main before Mike Altobelli took over to speed to the victory.

Hulson would finish second with Dan Davies ending up third.

By finishing fourth in the main, Brad Kling secured the 2017 Mid Atlantic Modified series title.

Heats for the mods went to Mike Corbin and Altobelli.

Freddie Rahmer And Kevin Nouse Earn Williams Grove Speedway Sprint Titles

10/8/17

Mechanicsburg – Williams Grove Speedway closed its 2017 racing season on October 6 having crowned its season champions in both the Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint car division and the HJ Towing & Recovery 358 sprint car division.

At the age of 21, young Freddie Rahmer of Salfordville became the youngest driver to claim a Williams Grove Speedway track title since Bobby Davis Jr. accomplished the feat at age 20 back in 1983 while driving for Bob Weikert.

It was Rahmer’s first ever title at the oval.

A three-time winner at the track in 2017, Freddie Rahmer now joins his father and car owner, Fred Rahmer on the prestigious Williams Grove Speedway all time championship win list.

The elder Rahmer earned nine career oval track titles as a pilot himself and now owns a total of 10 including his first as a car owner in 2017.

Rahmer and Dave Pritchard will share car owner laurels for 2017.

Freddie Rahmer also earned the 2017 Williams Grove Diamond Series title at the track, earning the most points in the oval series comprised of some of the most special events the track offers during the year.

His father was a two-time Diamond Series champion during his career.

In the 358 sprint division, Mechanicsburg’s Kevin Nouse recently wrapped up the 2017 track title.

The title was the fourth of Nouses’s career at the track after also taking titles in 2013, 2014 and in 2016.

The 2017 title puts Knouse in pretty elite company as only one other driver has won more Williams Grove titles with Pat Cannon having earned a total of five 358 sprint crowns.

Like Nouse, Cory Haas earned four during his tenure in the limited sprints.

Nouse took one oval victory in 2017.

Special awards in the 358 sprints went to Troy Wagaman Jr. as Most Improved Driver, Brie Hershey for Sportsmanship and Brett Wanner as Rookie of the Year.

In the 410 sprint ranks, special awards went to Anthony Macri as Rookie of the Year, Troy Fraker for Sportsmanship, Matt Campbell as Most Improved and Mechanic of the Year went to Freddie Rahmer for wrenching his own mount to the 2017 track title.

The 2018 season opener at Williams Grove Speedway has been determined to be a 410 sprints only program, taking place on a Sunday afternoon in March.

KENNY EDKIN DOMINATES FINAL SUPER SPORTSMAN RACE OF SEASON Potts, Dove and Montgomery All Get Second Susky Wins By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA…10/7/17 Kenny Edkin put an exclamation point on his breakout season by dominating Saturday night’s 40-lap Fall Harvest King of the Hill presented by Hessiron.com Super Sportsman feature at Susquehanna Speedway.

Edkin’s division leading sixth win of the season came in the season finale for the Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman

Other winners on the warm October race night included Charles Potts in the Bernheisel Race Cars 358 Late Models, Lucas Montgomery in the ServiceMaster Clean Central PA Legends and Steve Dove in the Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stocks. Dove was rewarded the street stock win after actual winner Randy Zechman was disqualified after failing post race inspection.

Veteran Rich Eichelberger set the pace for the first three laps of the Harvest Classic before slowing on the speedway to bring out the first of eight caution flags during the main event.

This turned the lead over to 2017 track champion Scott Dellinger who would hold the point until the 10th lap when eighth starting Edkin drove by to take the top spot.

Edkin, of Marysville, pulled away from Dellinger but was kept at bay with all of the yellows but each time, Edkin showed strength by extending his lead.

The final caution of the race flew on lap 32 as Edkin pulled away to a 2.320 second advantage at the checkered flag aboard his family owned No. 75.

Dellinger crossed second ahead of Sportsman 100 winner Frankie Herr, Chad Criswell and 11th starting Gregg Foster with Steve Fannasy, Chase Gutshall, Mike Enders, Garrett Williamson and Justin Foster completing the top ten.

Enders set fast time over the 27 car field in time trials with a lap of 18.656 while heats were won by Dellinger, Edkin and Fannasy. Justin Foster earned the Hard Charger after starting 17th.

Eric Hohol led the first two laps of the 20-lap BRC 358 Late Model feature before spinning out.

Charles Potts took command after starting second and would hold the lead but it was Dan Zechman who came on strong during the final laps to make this one a thriller as Potts raced around the inside of the track while Zechman pounded the top looking for the lead.

But Potts would prevail by a scant 0.169 of a second for his second win of the year over Zechman. Track point leader Randy Christine, Jr. crossed a distant third over Bryan Bernheisel, Brian Shuey, JR Rodriguez, Jake Moser, Steve Billet, Sean Merkel and Jed Latshaw, the race’s Hard Charger after lining up 20th.

Christine, Zechman and Shuey won heats for the 21 car field.

Randy Zechman dominated the caution-marred 20 lap Street stock main and crossed first but after failing post race inspection, Steve Dove was rewarded with his second feature win of the year.

Defending track champion Mike Potts was second over ninth starting Jimmy Combs, 12th starting Joey Hoffer and 15th starting and Hard Charger Kyle Saylor competing the top five. Rounding out the top 10 were Brandon Wanner, Kevin Sigler, Matt Adams, Brad Bingaman and Scott Thunberg.

Heats for the 21 street stocks were won by Mike Buckley and Zechman.

Ninth-starting Lucas Montgomery came away with the win in the thrilling 20-lap ServiceMaster Clean Central PA Legends feature.

Harlon Leppo led the first 13 laps before Montgomery took the lead as he then had to fend off late race challenges from Haydon Pascoe before taking the win, 0.214 seconds ahead of Pascoe with Leppo crossing just 0.428 seconds back in third. Fourth went to Scott Houdeshell over 12th starting Mason Chaney.

Susquehanna Speedway returns to action Saturday night, October 14 with final appearance of the season for the Freedmont® Mortgage Lending PASS/IMCA Sprints and the Bernheisel Race Cars 358 Late Models. Joining these two divisions will be the Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stocks, Superior Homes Extreme Stocks and the Road Warriors. Racee time is 6PM.

Smith surged during the final five laps to drive down leader Tyler Reeser and swoop past for the $1,350 win in the final two turns of the 25-lap feature event.

The 20-lap Mason Dixon Shootout limited late model main was taken by Justin Weaver after Weaver also made a late race pass for the victory.

The make-up Butch Renninger Memorial for xtreme stocks went to local driver Herm Renninger after he led 17 laps of the main and the four cylinder main was scored by Matt Chronister.

Nearly 140 cars filled the pits for action in the big October event.

Polesitter Nick Sweigart led only the first lap of the Blue Collar Classic for the 305 sprint cars before Tyler Reeser took over.

In a race for the track title, Reeser tried pulling away after he got to the front while point leader Jeff Miller battled into third spot behind Darren Miller.

Reeser hit the halfway point of the race with a .7 second lead over Darren Miller and Jeff Miller and then just as Jeff Miller put a move on for second with 10 laps to go, he lost control and spun the car in the fourth corner, ending his title hopes.

The restart saw 12th starter Kyle Smith taking the green from fourth spot and Smith raced up to third when action resumed.

With five laps to go, Reeser still had a .898 second lead over Darren Miller however Smith was clearly getting faster during the final stages, using great runs off of the cushion on the second corner to gain ground.

He took second with three laps to go and then ran down the leader to duck to his inside in the third and fourth turns as the leaders headed toward the finish line.

Smith was able to come out of turn four as the leader with Reeser glued to his tail back to the checkers.

Smith’s margin of victory was a scant .080 seconds.

Reeser ended up second and recorded the 2017 Creasy Signs Port Royal 305 Sprint Series track title.

Darren Miller was third followed by Nick Sweigart and Ken Duke Jr.

Sixth through 10th went to Zach Newlin, Jeff Geiges, Drew Ritchey, Scott Lutz and Jeff Miller.

Heats for the 57-car field went to Reeser, Dylan Schatzer, Darren Miller, Kyle Smith, Sydney Prince and Jeff Miller.

Twin consolations went to Austin Bishop and Greg Dobrosky with Tim Tanner Jr. setting fast time with a lap of 18.307 seconds.

Kyle Ganoe led all 15 laps of the Founders Cup non-qualifiers race for the 305 sprints to earn a guaranteed starting spot in the 2018 Blue Collar Classic main.

James Lichliter led the first 16 laps of the limited late model main over fourth starter Justin Weaver.

But Weaver’s bottom groove came in as the race wore into the late stages and with three laps to go, Weaver drove into control for the $1,000 victory.

Lichliter rode home second followed by George Dixon, Derrick Garman and Jim Yoder.

Heats went to Lichliter, Garman, Dillan Stake and Dixon. Andrew Stotler took the consolation race.

Herm Renninger took control from Bob Bussey on the third lap to speed to the Renninger Memorial xtreme stock main.

Bill Powell raced into second on a lap four restart and ended up finishing second and scoring the 2017 Juniata Junction xtreme stock track title.

Kevin Imes rode home third followed by Mike Goodwin and Ryan Zook.

Heats went to Renninger, Josh Bender and Imes.

Polesitter Matt Chronister wired the field for the four cylinder feature win.

Chronister was challenged by Chris Anderson for the win but Anderson would finish second followed by Noah Swank, Tim Campbell and Tim Raup.

Twin heats went to Chris Anderson and Justin Williamson.

Feature finishes to follow Sunday.

J.J. GRASSO WINS LINCOLN SPEEDWAY 2017 SEASON FINALE;

Chase Dietz Wins 358 Sprint Finale, Adrian Shaffer Locks up 2017 358 Sprint Track Title

Travis McClelland Closes Out 2017 Season with All American Outlaw Win

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 10/7/2017 – JJ Grasso of Middletown, DE, drove his family-owned No.37 sprinter flawlessly through lapped traffic and held off 7-time 2017 winner Danny Dietrich and 2017 track champ Brian Montieth to pick up the win in the 30-lap $4,000-to-win 410 sprint season finale.

York’s Chase Dietz picked up the win in the 358 Sprint finale, while York’s Adrian Shaffer secured the 2017 track title with his fourth-place finish. Travis McClelland symbolically closed out the 2017 racing season at Lincoln Speedway with the win in the 20-lap All American Outlaw feature at the end of the night.

The 2017 finale was also a celebration of the lives of two special people involved in racing at the historic Pigeon Hills oval. Promotor and car-owner Bob Leiby was honored with the first annual memorial race in his honor after being rained out on September 2nd. This was coupled with the 29th running of the traditional Manufacturers Appreciation Night in honor of Hank Gentzler. 10’s of thousands of dollars in manufacturers goods were awarded in individual prize packages to the 410 sprint drivers starting the feature event. All this was made possible by the efforts of Pancho’s Racing Products.

Grasso, who started outside the front row, hooked onto the bumper of polesitter Eric Tomecek at the drop of the green and followed the Abbottstown racer into lapped traffic with Dietrich, Montieth, and Lucas Wolfe right behind through 10 laps.

At the beginning of lap 11, Grasso dove inside the leader entering turn 1 and slid up trying to secure the lead. Tomecek tried to hang onto the cushion and his lead, but slipped up off the cushion and into the outer wall, rolling his sprinter onto it’s side.

Grasso now had the lead. But right behind were Dietrich, Montieth, Wolfe and Greg Hodnett with 20 laps remaining. A daunting task for any driver.

Grasso went to work on the restart and used the clear track to his advantage, building a slight advantage as they entered lapped traffic once again on lap 17.

Both Dietrich and Montieth closed to gap on the leader and with 10 laps remaining the race was on through lapped traffic.

Then with five laps remaining Cole Young crashed on the frontstretch, bringing race’s final caution and set up a five-lap race to the checkered.

On the restart Grasso got up to speed flawlessly and never wavered as he took the checkered five laps later for the win over Dietrich, Montieth, Wolfe and Hodnett.

Completing the top-10 were 19th-starting Freddie Rahmer, Anthony Macri, 12th-starting Alan Krimes, 16th-starting Cory Haas, and 13th-starting Brandon Rahmer.

Heats for the 25 410 Sprinters were won by Matt Campbell, Hodnett, and Macri, with Freddie Rahmer winning the consolation.

8th-starting Chase Dietz passed race long leader Steve Drevicki on the sixth lap and raced away to his first 358 sprint win of the year at Lincoln in the finale.

Two cautions, both involving spin-outs by Brie Hershey on the eighth and 14th laps, allowed Drevicki to remain close to the leader throughout.

But Dietz was clearly the class of the field this night and easily took the checkered 1.93-seconds ahead of Drevicki for the win.

Cody Fletcher came out on top of a race-long battle with Adrian Shaffer for the third spot. Even though Shaffer had to settle for a fourth-place finish, it was enough to clinch the 2017 358 Sprint track title for the York racer.

12th-starting Brent Shearer completed the top-five.

Rounding out the top-10 were 13th-starting Troy Wagaman, Jr., 17th-starting Matt Findley, 18th-starting Tyler Ross, 20th-starting Chris Frank, and polesitter Jon Stewart.

Heats for the 33 358 Sprinters were won by Stewart, Shearer, Drevicki, and Kyle Denmyer with Chandler Leiby winning the consolation.

6th-starting Travis McClelland of Littlestown and polesitter Jim Minter of Sharpsburg, MD, waged a race-long battle in the 20-lap All American Outlaw feature with McClelland coming out on top by a mere .69-seconds in the 2017 finale at the Pigeon Hills oval.

Gary Moreland, Sr., Joe Davis, and Brad Alexander rounded out the top-five.

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

This race closed out the 2017 racing season at Lincoln Speedway. The 2017 Lincoln Speedway Awards Banquet on Saturday, November 18th (6 PM-12:30 AM) will cap off the the season to honor the champions, top-10 in points, and give away the annual special awards in celebration of another successful season.

Promoters Don Leiby and Alan Kreitzer have announced that opening day for the 2018 season will be on Saturday, February 24th. Gates will open at noon with 410 sprint car racing to begin at 2:00 p.m.

So the countdown begins, 140 days, to the begin the 66th chapter of racing at the historic “Fabulous Lincoln Speedway”!

Dietrich Swaps Lead With Campbell Seven Times In Final Laps To Close Grove Season With Sprints Win

10/6/17

Mechanicsburg – Danny Dietrich came out on top of a furious battle with Matt Campbell during the last few laps to pick up the victory in Friday night’s season ending sprint car main at Williams Grove Speedway.

And in the super late model main Bryan Bernheisel took the win over his father Jim Bernheisel to close out the season’s competition.

Trying to pick up his second win in under a month, Matt Campbell started on the pole of the 25-lap 410 sprint main and blasted into the lead over Dietrich when action began.

Campbell entered the rear of the field on just the fifth tour with Dietrich in tow however the Fawn Grove driver performed flawlessly in traffic to keep Dietrich at bay despite some intense battles as he worked through the back of the pack.

At the halfway point, Campbell was doing everything right to keep his lead over Dietrich with nearly a one second advantage.

With 10 laps to go, Campbell was still flawless, working both sides of the speedway as Dietrich and Brock Zearfoss kept pace although not able to make any bids for the win.

But with three laps to go, the races only caution flag unfurled, clearing the way for Campbell but also placing the second and third place cars directly on his tail.

And when action resumed for the final three laps, Dietrich went to work wrestling with Campbell for the win and during the final mile and a half, the pair swapped the lead no less than seven times as they see-sawed back and forth in every corner.

Campbell had a car that worked perfectly on both sides fo the track and if Dietirch went for the slider, Campbell simply backed off, turned the car and jetted back into the lead after dropping off of the cushion.

But Dietrich finally got the better of Campbell in the final turns, having beaten him into the third corner for the victory, which was his third of the year at the track.

Campbell then slipped just a bit in the final corner, allowing a close following Zearfoss to get by for second.

Dietrich’s margin of victory was .547 seconds over Zearfoss.

Fourth went to Greg Hodnett and fifth went to Lucas Wolfe.

Sixth through 10th went to Daryn Pittman, Freddie Rahmer, Chad Trout, Kody Lehman and Anthony Macri.

Heats went to Zearfoss, Tim Wagaman and Trout.

Bryan Bernheisel led ever lap of the 25-lap super late model main.

His pace was hampered by numerous caution flags including on the initial start and on laps seven, 10, 16 and 22.

But each time the field restarted the younger Bernheisel was able to pull away from the rest of the field.

Coleby Frye took second from Jim Bernheisel on the lap seven restart but Frye then withdrew from the race with 10 laps completed.

Third went to Gene Knaub followed by Tyler Horst and Matt Nailor.

Heats went to Frye and Jim Bernheisel.

The win was the second of Bryan Bernheisel’s career at the Williams Grove oval.

FROM WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY

SEPTEMBER 30, 2017

DAVID GRAVEL EARNS $50,000 FOR WIN IN 55TH ANNUAL CHAMPION RACING OIL NATIONAL OPEN AT WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY

MECHANICSBURG, PA – David Gravel took the lead from Donny Schatz and then took the lead back from James McFadden to win the 55th Annual Champion Racing Oil National Open Saturday night at Williams Grove Speedway.

Gravel’s second win in the National Open was worth $50,000 and was his second win of the weekend in a car owned by Pennsylvania’s Chad and Jenn Clemens. He also won the National Open in 2014.

“It’s crazy,” said Gravel, of Watertown, Conn. “I knew the track was going to end up doing that taking rubber and cleaning up around the bottom. I made a mistake on the restart and gave McFadden the bottom and was able to rail the top in three and four and get him back. I was really lucky that happened because if it didn’t I probably wouldn’t have won the race. I made a mistake, I was able to recover and able to hold on. There’s some cords showing from the tires. I didn’t want that last caution even though I was behind the lapped cars. I knew if I didn’t mess up it wouldn’t be an issue. I was worried about weight and blowing a tire. I’m happy to get another one here and solidify myself here. Three wins at the Grove in one year is pretty awesome.”

Schatz started second and drove into the race lead over polesitter Gravel and sixth starter McFadden on the opening lap.

Schatz built a quick one-second lead, but Gravel began to close passing Schatz with an inside move off turn four completing lap six as the leader.

Gravel reached slower traffic with a 1.359-second lead as McFadden challenged Schatz. Gravel was stuck behind Jac Haudenschild allowing Schatz and McFadden to close.

Schatz passed Gravel off turn two retaking the lead on lap 11, but Gravel took it back and passed Haudenschild and another car to give himself a two-car cushion.

McFadden passed Schatz in turn two taking over the second spot on lap 17.

Brian Montieth’s slower sprinter in turn two brought the field under caution with 18 laps completed. Gravel took the outside position for the double-file restart.

McFadden drove under him in turn two taking the lead. They were close at the line the next time by with McFadden leading.

Gravel took the lead back in turn four and they were nose-to-tail at the line completing lap 20.

Shane Stewart stopped in turn three on lap 21. Gravel went to the top again and maintained the lead as Schatz passed McFadden back for second.

By lap 26, the racing had shifted to the inside lane around the speedway. A crash off turn two brought out the red flag with 12 laps to go. Stewart was a flip victim. Brad Sweet, Kraig Kinser and Jason Johnson were also involved. Crews were allowed to refuel under an open red.

Gravel picked the inside for this restart, but the red flag came out again when Kinser flipped in turn one and Sweet was also involved again.

The restart was single-file this time.

Gravel controlled the pace as Logan Schuchart was the only driver trying the top in turn four. Schatz began to close with a few laps left and was on Gravel’s bumper in turns one and two and looked like he was about to try a move when the caution flew as Brian Brown slowed on the backstretch with two laps left.

Gravel didn’t make a mistake over the final laps and won by .683. Schatz, McFadden, 20th starter Schuchart and Pittman completed the top five. Ninth starter Greg Hodnett, Kerry Madsen, 11th starter Sheldon Haudenschild, 16th starter Brock Zearfoss and Jason Sides rounded out the top 10.

The mechanics of the top three finishers – Barry Jackson, Ricky Warner and Matt Highlands – all graduated from Big Spring High School in nearby Newville.

The top four drivers in total points from Thursday and Friday were locked into Saturday’s dash and included Schatz, Gravel, McFadden and Daryn Pittman. The heat races were lined up straight-up by points with Stewart, Kerry Madsen, Lucas Wolfe and Greg Hodnett winning those. Gravel won the dash and Sweet the Last Chance Showdown after a mechanical problem in his heat race.

McFadden Upends Field For First Outlaws & Williams Grove Win In Open Round 2

9/29/17

Mechanicsburg – Australian champion James McFadden won his first ever World of Outlaws sprint car feature on Friday night while also scoring his first ever win at Williams Grove Speedway, scoring $10,000 for the victory in night two of the 2017 Champion Racing Oil National Open.

Aboard the Highlands No. 3, McFadden earned the pole for the 25-lap main event by winning the dash.

The initial start of the feature saw Greg Hodnett take the lead from McFadden as the pair raced out of the fourth corner to complete lap one before a light rain shower hit the track, halting action.

A complete restart with no laps completed was ordered after a 20-minute delay.

And this time McFadden took a solid lead over Hodnett and he was trying to open up substantial distance when the red flag unfurled with just three laps recorded for a four car accident in the third turn.

The cars of Danny Dietrich, Trey Starks and Brian Montieth connected and saw Jac Haudenschild blast into the pile, getting the worst of the damage.

Haudenschild was escorted back to the pit area by ambulance.

The rest of the 22 laps would go non-stop with McFadden driving out to a near two second lead by lap 10 and he entered the backmarkers on lap 11.

But even lapped traffic didn’t allow Hodnett to close in as McFadden was still 1.85 seconds ahead with 10 laps to go.

However as traffic got heavier and the race went longer, Hodnett began to encroach and with four laps to go the leader’s advantage was down to .89 seconds, which put the front duo nearly nose to tail with Donny Schatz lurking in third.

With three laps to go McFadden had just .60 seconds between himself and Hodnett and that’s when he came up on the backmarkers of Alan Krimes and Brian Brown and Alan Krimes battling for position.

And when McFadden misjudged Brown’s entry into the first corner, the result saw him hard on the binders with all four wheels seemingly pointed every direction but straight as he tried to avoid catastrophy as he set the car into the corner.

This put Hodnett and Schatz in prime position to drive by but somehow McFadden emerged from turn two still the leader with second and third breathing down his neck.

And the lack of breathing room got even less on the final lap as .34 seconds was the advantage as the white flag waved.

Hodnett made a last turns move to steal the win as the pair headed through the fourth corner, dipping to McFadden’s inside as the pair swooped around the cushion but McFadden was able to beat Hodnett back to the stripe by just .24 seconds for the prestigious victory.

Schatz rode home a challenging third followed by Brad Sweet and Shane Stewart.

Sixth through 10th went to Jason Johnson, Ian Madsen, Lucas Wolfe, Kerry Madsen and David Gravel.

Heats for the 46-car field went to Johnson, McFadden, Wolfe and Hodnett with Cory Haas taking the C Main and Lance Dewease taking the B Main.

Dewease dropped out of second place in the second heat with motor ills but then climbed to 11th in the main event.

Overall fast time was set by Jason Sides with a lap of 16.976 seconds.

Freddie Rahmer finished 27th in the feature and needs only to take a green flag in Saturday night’s National Open itself to clinch the 2017 Williams Grove Speedway track title.

The top four in National Open points heading into the final night of competition on Saturday that are locked into the Open dash are: Donny Schatz, David Gravel, James McFadden and Daryn Pittman.

SEPTEMBER 28, 2017

DAVID GRAVEL WINS OPENING NIGHT OF CHAMPION RACING OIL NATIONAL OPEN AT WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY

Greg Hodnett rebounds from crash in first feature to win postponed Summer Nationals feature worth $20,000

MECHANICSBURG, PA – David Gravel was racing third when leaders Greg Hodnett and Shane Stewart got together and spun in turn three.

Gravel missed the wreck, assumed the lead and controlled the final 15 laps scoring the opening night win for the 55th Annual Williams Grove National Open.

His 15th World of Outlaws win this season was worth $10,000. It was his second Grove win of the season.

“We’ve been fast here all year,” said Gravel, of Watertown, Conn. “Hopefully, we can keep it up all weekend. Obviously, it’s the start that we wanted. We’ll see what we can do. It has been a great year.”

Hodnett and Stewart shared the front row to start the 25-lap main event with Hodnett getting the lead. He led Stewart by 1.220 seconds as Gravel raced third in the early laps. Meanwhile, Donny Schatz and Lance Dewease battled for fourth.

Stewart was slowly closing on the leader. He drove off the bottom of turn four and Hodnett the top. The leaders made contact as they raced toward the flagstand. Hodnett spun, hit the fence, but kept going as the caution flew. Stewart officially completed the lap as the leader and Hodnett crossed the line second.

The restart saw close racing again between Hodnett and Stewart. Hodnett put a big slider on Stewart in turn one. They both slid to the fence with inches between the two. They made it off the second turn and down the backstretch. They raced into the third turn and made contact again. This time they both spun and slid across the track and into the fence. Stewart continued while Hodnett was towed to the pits.

Gravel just missed the wreck and assumed the lead.

“I don’t know how I didn’t crash there,” said Gravel. “It scared me a little bit. I got really lucky there.”

Gravel led Daryn Pittman and Dewease down for the restart. At the half-way point, Gravel led by 1.403 as Dewease challenged Pittman for second, but couldn’t make the pass.

Gravel controlled the remaining laps, but did have a brief challenge from Pittman on the inside of turn one with a few laps to go.

“I just had to hang on there,” said Gravel. “I knew Daryn was all over me. To get our 15th win and third win in Pa. this year is pretty amazing.”

Gravel won by 0.445 over Pittman. Dewease, Schatz and Cory Haas completed the top five. Sheldon Haudenschild, Kerry Madsen, Grove point leader Freddie Rahmer, Brian Brown and Brad Sweet rounded out the top 10.

The 48-car field was split into two groups for qualifying time trials. Greg Hodnett set fast time in the first group with a lap of 16.702. Shane Stewart set fast time in the second with a lap of 17.055. Hodnett, Pittman, Stewart and Dewease won the eight-lap heat races. Jason Johnson won the C-main, Hodnett won the dash and

Hodnett started on the pole in the postponed Summer Nationals feature and grabbed the race lead over Gravel and Sweet.

Danny Dietrich charged into third and then drove by Gravel off turn two taking second.

Hodnett reached traffic with a 2.285 second lead. The preferred line was the bottom and Hodnett stayed down and couldn’t lap a slower car.

Dietrich got another great run off turn two. Hodnett tried to lap the car on the backstretch with Dietrich coming on the top. Dietrich jammed it into the third turn and they made contact with Dietrich spinning out and collecting Brian Montieth.

Hodnett kept going and controlled the ensuing restart. Eighth starting Lucas Wolfe was up to fourth passing two cars on the restart then taking second as the caution flew again for spinning cars in turn three.

Another caution on the restart as Dietrich crashed in between turn one and two. A single-file restart ensued.

Hodnett kept Wolfe at bay on the lap 15 restart as Schatz passed Gravel through the middle of turn two. Pittman also passed Gravel taking fourth.

Racing moved to the inside groove over the final 10 laps. Hodnett caught traffic with five laps to go. Wolfe closed on Hodnett late but everybody stayed in line.

Hodnett won by .340 over Wolfe with Schatz, Pittman and Gravel completing the top five. Sweet, Stewart, Dewease, Schuchart and Sheldon Haudenschild rounded out the top 10.

Hodnett’s 71st career Grove win -fourth this year – was worth $20,000.

Williams Grove Champion Racing Oil National Open Is This Week

Prestigious event offers long and storied history

9/24/17

Mechanicsburg – Sprint car fans in the East will gather this Saturday night to see the 55th running of the Williams Grove Speedway Champion Racing Oil National Open for sprint cars sanctioned by the World of Outlaws Craftsman sprint car series, going 40-laps in distance and paying $50,000 to the winner.

The National Open has a grand history that dates back to its inception and first champion in 1963.

Eventual Indianapolis 500 champion Gordon Johncock of Hastings, Mich., won the 100-lap affair in a contraption that had what looked like a wing atop its roll cage.

And this too would soon come to pass, as sprint cars would begin taking over dirt tracks in the east, including Williams Grove Speedway.

Ohio USAC standout Larry Dickson scored Open round two in 1964. Western Pennsylvania invader Henry Jacoby of Franklin took 1965.

The name of Blaney graced the National Open winner’s circle in 1966 as family patriarch Lou took Open laurels decades before his sons Dave and Dale would compete on the scene.

Bobbie Adamson, becoming a region name, took back-to-back victories in 1967 and 1968 before a virtual unknown named Gene Varner from Selinsgrove drove a back-up Gary Wasson No. 5 to an upset win in 1969 after a distance of 150 laps.

The decade of the 1970’s dawned with Altoona flyer Johnny Grum picking up the Open win.

The first of three consecutive wins by Midwest transplant Kenny Weld took place in 1971. All three of Weld’s wins came aboard the Bob Weikert No. 29.

Another transplant, The Bandit, Steve Smith Sr., took wins in 1974 and again in a rain-shortened 122-lap race in 1976 while The Original Outlaw, Bobby Allen drove to a win in 1975.

Texas native racing brother Van May took the 1977 version of the National Open before the Pink Panther struck in 1978 with a Kramer Williamson 100-lap win.

Smokey Snellbaker drove to victory for Charlie Lloyd in 1979 before the grandson of a coal miner named Lucas, Allen Klinger of Hegins kicked off the 1980’s with a 40-lap victory.

Steve Smith Sr. returned for a third Open triumph in 1981.

Lynn Paxton went back-to-back in 1982 and 1983 and stunned the racing world after his second 75-lap win by announcing his early retirement from the sport in victory lane.

Three more in a row for owner Bob Weikert came at the hands of South Dakota driver Doug Wolfgang from 1984 – 1986.

Wolfgang got stunned, denied and passed by Joey Allen for the victory in 1987.

The Mouse, Kenny Jacobs of Holmesville, Ohio, took another win for Weikert in 1988.

The year 1989 found the first true World of Outlaws National Open contested as the yearly sanctioning began with Stevie Smith taking a victory to carry on his father’s tradition.

Technically, the 1978 National Open was considered an outlaws race as well although no outlaws drivers competed in the event.

One of if not the greatest sprint car driver(s) of all time, Hoosier Steve Kinser took his first National Open checkers in 1990.

Stevie Smith returned for another Open win, both for car owner Al Hamilton, in 1991, and now at a distance of 50 laps.

Kinser was again the champion in 1992 before daytime specialist Don Kreitz Jr. drove to victory under the Sunday sun in 1993 after 40 laps of action.

Steve Kinser was again the winner in 1994 before outlaw cousin Mark Kinser took 1995.

The locals went back in front in 1996 with Lance Dewease and No. 461 car owner Walt Dyer.

Sammy Swindell won his first National Open in 1997 on a night that had fans returning to frozen windshields on their cars by the time the race ended.

Persistent rain forced a non-sanctioned event in 1998, won by modified turned sprint star Billy Pauch in a mount owned by John Zemaitis.

Mark Kinser returned for victory in 1999 before one of today’s outlaws stars and champions, Donny Schatz took his first win in 2000 as part of what would become a historic record in National Open competition in another 13 years.

Dewease returned the laurels to the PA Posse turf with back-to-back wins in 2001 and 2002, for car owners Joe Harz and Al Hamilton, taking $25,000 and $30,000, respectively on both accounts.

Steve Kinser was again the winner in 2003 before Schatz returned for two in a row in 2004 and 2005.

The first $50,000 to win National Open was scored by Lancaster’s Doug Esh in 2006 and as it turned out it was the richest and shortest Open in history when rains hit on lap 26 of 40.

Schatz was again the winner in 2007.

Thanks to more persistent rain, another unsanctioned event in 2008 saw future outlaws and All Stars star Cody Darrah drive to victory.

Greg Hodnett took a hugely popular National Open victory for the PA Posse in 2009 driving the Jim and Sandy Kline No. 22.

Sammy Swindell got the second Open win of his career in 2010.

West coast flyer Jason Meyers took the 40-lap, $50,000 laurels in 2011.

The 2012 version saw North Dakota’s Schatz surge for an unprecedented fifth career win in the prestigious classic National Open.

With the $50,000, 40-lap victory, Schatz became the winningest driver in National Open history, breaking a four-win tie with Steve Kinser.

In 2013, the grand career of local driver Fred Rahmer of Salfordville was capped off at Williams Grove with his first and only triumph in the lucrative, prestigious National Open as Rahmer led the final 31 laps of the 40-lap feature before the veteran retired from the sport at the close of the season.

Connecticut driver David Gravel took the $50,000 win in 2014 but not without controversy.

The outlaws flyer was overtaken by local favorite Stevie Smith during the last half of the race before the slightest of contact from a closely following Gravel found Smith spinning in the first turn with six laps to go while Gravel retook command for the victory.

And then Stevie Smith got redemption in what was to be the first three-day National Open in history in 2015.

After three consecutive days of rain stopped the event dead in its tracks, a break with the weather on Sunday allowed a raindated Open to be completed with Smith taking the lead from Danny Dietrich on the ninth tour to lead the final 31 circuits and beat Schatz to the line for victory.

An uncanny three more days of rain and raw weather wiped out a second attempt at a three-day nationals in 2016.

A make up two weeks later found Danny Dietrich taking the lead from Joey Saldana with two laps to go in the 40-lap affair to score a wildly popluar win for the Pennsylvania Posse. Brad Sweet also took a turn at leading the main.

Admission prices for Saturday’s National Open are $35 for adults and $20 for youth.

And please remember, kids ages 12 and under are always admitted free at Williams Grove Speedway.

LANCE DEWEASE EARNS FIRST DIRT CLASSIC WIN AND COLLECTS $20,000 PRIZE

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 9/23/2017 – In his victory lane interview, Lance Dewease mentioned he hadn’t been good all night. Turns out he was good enough to win his first Dirt Classic and take home $20,000 on Saturday Night at Lincoln Speedway.

Winner of the 2nd Dirt Classic, Brian Montieth, started on the pole of the main event with Gerard McIntyre Jr. on the outside. Montieth took the lead on the start with McIntyre settled in second.

The leaders hit lapped traffic on lap 7. As Montieth worked his way through lapped traffic he hit the wall on lap 10 opening the door for McIntyre to take the lead.

Montieth caught a break when Tyler Ross spun out in turn 4 on lap 11 bringing out the caution. McIntyre was able to hold off Montieth on the restart and held the lead until Cory Haas got turned around on lap 15 in turn 1 bringing out another caution. McIntyre couldn’t hold off Montieth on the restart and Montieth took the lead back on lap 16.

Anthony Macri flipped in turns 1 and 2 bringing out the red flag on lap 26. As the field was lining up for the restart, the right rear on the leader’s car was going flat. Montieth took the green flag for the restart but his tire did not hold up allowing eighth place starter Lance Dewease to take the lead passing both Montieth and McIntyre.

Montieth pulled off the track on lap 27, ending his night and his attempt at being the second repeat winner of the Dirt Classic.

After some contact with Danny Dietrich on the front stretch, Freddie Rahmer brought out the caution on lap 32 with a flat tire.

Dewease held onto his lead on the restart with McIntyre in second and a charging Dietrich in third. Dietrich got around McIntyre on lap 37 and had his eyes set on Dewease. Three laps were not enough for Dietrich to catch him and Dewease took the checkered flag with a 1.05 second advantage over Dietrich.

Lucas Wolfe crossed the line third, Gerard McIntyre held on to finish fourth and James McFadden completed the top 5.

Hard charger of the night, JJ Grasso finished sixth from his 20th starting spot. Greg Hodnett, Chad Trout, Kerry Madsen and Matt Campbell rounded out the top 10.

The Dirt Classic brings a unique race format to Central Pennsylvania. Points are awarded for time trials and two sets of heat races. The cars run the first set of heat races lined up based on time trial results and the second set is lined up in reverse. The top 20 drivers in points after time trials and heat races were locked into the main event. The remaining cars ran a B-main with the top 4 tagging the rear of the A-main.

Thirty-seven cars were on hand at Lincoln Speedway for the 4th Dirt Classic on Saturday Night. Drivers of the 37-car field represented 11 states and Australia.

TJ Stutts set fast time with a lap of 13.547 seconds averaging 99.653mph around the 3/8-mile oval.

The first set of heat races were won by TJ Stutts, Brian Brown, Lucas Wolfe, Gerard McIntyre and Freddie Rahmer. When the field was set up in reverse the heat winners were Tim Wagaman, Danny Dietrich, Brock Zearfoss, Kerry Madsen and JJ Grasso.

Tyler Ross, Alan Krimes, Brock Zearfoss and Matt Campbell transferred out of the B-main to complete the 24-car field for the main event.

During the driver’s meeting, it was announced that the 2018 Dirt Classic will pay $25,000 to win and $1,500 to start the main event.

Next Saturday, Saturday, September 30th, Lincoln Speedway will be idle to allow drivers and fans to attend other local big season-ending big races.

In two weeks, Saturday, October 7th, at 6 PM, Lincoln Speedway will run its final race of 2017 with the running of the BOB LEIBY MEMORIAL (Rescheduled from Sept. 2nd) along with the HANK GENTZLER MEMORIAL MANUFACTURERS APPRECIATION RACE PRESENTED BY PANCHO’S RACING PRODUCTS featuring the 410 Sprinters, along with the 358 Sprints who will go one last time for points in the season-long battle for the Lincoln Speedway 358 Sprint track championship. The All-American Outlaws will round out the 2017 season finale. Gates will open at 4 PM.

FRANKIE HERR TAKES BACK TO BACK WINS; SCOTT DELLINGER CAPTURES POINT TITLE
Latshaw Wins First while Morgan and Horan Get Second Season Wins
By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA…9/23/17
After dominating the Sportsman 100 just seven days prior, Carlisle, PA racer Frankie Herr came back to score his second straight win in Saturday night’s Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman feature at Susquehanna Speedway.

While Herr was dominating the late stages of the 25-lap feature, Lewisberry driver Scott Dellinger’s eighth place finish clinched his first career Super Sportsman track championship. Dellinger will be honored the track banquet later this year.

It appeared a first career winner would come away with the win in the Super Sportsman main as Nate Young set the pace during the first 14 laps but Garrett Williamson used a restart to take the lead and was looking for his first win as he led until lap 18.

That was when Herr, who had lined up 10th on the grid, arrived at the front of the field after methodically working his way forward. Herr drove by Williamson on the 19th lap as Williamson attempted to stay close but Herr’s Devine Motorsports No. 70D was too much once again for the rest of the field as he posted his second win of the season in the final points race for the year.

Williamson settled for a season best runner-up finish with Mike Enders coming home third as Young held on for a fourth place finish with Matt Ondek completing the top five.

Sixth through 10th were Timmie Barrick, Jay Fannasy, Scott Dellinger, Gregg Foster and last year’s track champion Russ Mitten.

Mitten was the Hard Charger for the race after starting 19th. He flipped during his heat race then worked his way forward in the feature only to stop on lap 15. He restarted at the rear and came back for the top ten finish as he finished runner-up in season points.

Herr and Ondek were heat race winners for the 20 car field.

Jed Latshaw raced to his first career win in the 25-lap Bernheisel Race Cars 358 Late Model feature.

Starting sixth, Latshaw made his race winning pass on Joe Lusk with eight laps complete and then kept defending track champion and current point leader Randy Christine, Jr. at bay before securing the win. Latshaw became the 10th different winner in Susquehanna late model competition this season.

Christine finished 2.675 seconds back in the runner-up spot trailed by Lusk, Brian Shuey and Eric Hohol with Sam Rial, Charles Potts, Bobby Beard, Devin Frey and Tim Murphy completing the top ten.

Shuey and Lusk were heat winners for the 17 car field.

Craig Morgan turned in an impressive effort in his second win of the year in the Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stock feature.

Morgan started back in the 13th spot and went out front with 16 laps in the books to capture the win. Morgan took the lead from Bob Scott, Jr. who had led the first eight laps and then again on the 15th lap. Morgan withstood ten caution flags during the 20-lap event.

Morgan crossed under the checkered flag 2.877 seconds ahead of Scott Thunberg with Jim Palm earning the Hard Charger after starting 14th. Fourth went to Joey Hoffer followed by Jimmy Combs, Brandon Wanner, Steve Dove, Eric Tripp, Matt Adams and Scott.

Kyle Saylor and Randy Zechman won heats for the 19 street stock field.

Travis Horan led laps three through 18 of the Superior Homes Extreme Stock feature but gave the lead up to point leader Alex Updegraff on the 19th circuit.

But Horan battled back and used a thrilling final lap pass to score the win, his second of the year over Updegraff, Bill Powell, Patrick McClane and Jeff Gill.

McClane and Michael Smith won heats for the 17 Extreme Stocks.

Susquehanna Speedway returns to action Saturday night, October 7 for the Harvest Classic King of the Hill presented by Hessiron.com featuring the Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman, Bernheisel Race Cars 358 Late Models, Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stocks and ServiceMaster Clean Central PA Legends.

FROM WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY

SEPTEMBER 22, 2017

GREG HODNETT WINS NATIONAL OPEN TUNE-UP RACE FRIDAY NIGHT AT WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY

$50,000 to win National Open Next Saturday

MECHANICSBURG, PA – Greg Hodnett is ready for the World of Outlaws-sanctioned Williams Grove National Open next weekend after picking up his 70th career Sprint car win at the Grove Friday night.

Hodnett’s third Grove win of the season was worth $4,000 in the Mike Heffner-owned No. 27, but it wasn’t easy as he had constant pressure from Lance Dewease over the final half of the 25-lap main event.

“I could hear him pushing us around,” said Hodnett about Dewease. “I wasn’t very good off of two no matter what I was doing. In three and four, I couldn’t get stuck again to either go across or hit the bottom. He almost drove by me in three and four the one time. I figured I’d better get going and see if I could hold him off for a couple laps.”

Hodnett, of Spring Grove, started on the pole and beat Brian Brown into the first turn on the opening lap to take the lead. Dewease started fourth and passed Brown taking second on the second lap.

As Dewease stalked Hodnett, Brown and James McFadden traded the third spot and eighth starter Lucas Wolfe passed Matt Campbell taking fifth.

Hodnett’s lead was 1.903 when they reached slower traffic at the back of the field with seven laps completed.

The heavy lapped traffic helped Dewease cut Hodnett’s lead in half in only one lap. Dewease ducked low on Hodnett, but Hodnett maintained the lead by about a half-second.

Dewease took another shot at Hodnett, but wasn’t able to seal the deal as the drivers ranked second and third on the all-time Grove win list continued to battle for the win.

“If he could have beat me to the cushion it would have been his easily,” said Hodnett, who starts on the pole of the postponed Summer Nationals feature Thursday night. “Lance is not going to crash himself or me because we know we’ve got to race tomorrow and race next week. This is more of an organized hot lap session than anything for us. Although it’s nice to win and be competitive. We also know there’s bigger fish to fry here in the next couple weeks. He had a huge run coming off four and tried to take that shot. Honestly, if he would have been about two feet in front of us then I would have backed off and let him go, but fortunately we had a lot of momentum coming off the top.”

Hodnett stayed in front of Dewease as they both switched lanes working through lapped traffic. The last five laps saw Dewease challenge Hodnett again on the low side, but Hodnett switched to the bottom groove to take away Dewease’s preferred line.

Hodnett cleared one final lapped car off turn two on the last lap securing the win by 0.803 over Dewease.

“It’s a good thing it wasn’t 30 laps that’s all I can say,” said Hodnett.

Wolfe passed Brown to finish third. Point leader Freddie Rahmer raced from 10th to fifth. McFadden, Campbell, Kerry Madsen, Brian Montieth and 20th starter Danny Dietrich rounded out the top 10. The non-stop time was 8:34.

TJ Stutts set fast time over the 29-car field with a lap of 16.941. Stutts, Hodnett and James McFadden won the eight-lap heat races. Hodnett passed Brown on the final lap to win the dash. Anthony Macri won the B-main.

Scott Fisher led all 20 laps winning the 358-Sprint feature. Track champion Kevin Nouse started 12th and finished a close second. Kyle Denmyer, Chris Frank and Chase Dietz completed the top five. Steve Owings, Brett Wanner, Nyle Berkes, Troy Wagaman Jr. and Steve Drevicki rounded out the top 10.

“The way this year went, we really, really needed this,” said Fisher.

Kyle Denmyer, Brett Wanner and Kevin Nouse won the 358 heats.

DANNY DIETRICH TAKES THURSDAY NIGHT THUNDER WIN

Hayden Pascoe Wins Legends Feature By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA…9/21/17 Danny Dietrich used a bold move on a lap 12 restart and never looked back as he raced to his first win of the season at Susquehanna Speedway in Thursday night’s BAPS Auto Paints and Supplies 410 Sprint Series feature.

Dietrich’s ninth career Susquehanna win was worth $4,000 to the Gary Kauffman owned, Weikert’s Livestock, Sandoe’s Fruit Market team. He became the fifth different winner in six BAPS events this season.

It was an eventful night for Dietrich, who ran out of fuel during his time trial laps resulting in a fifth place start in his heat race. With the top two finishers in the heat going to the dash, Dietrich blew through the field in the heat to finish second and put himself into position to capitalize in the dash.

He lined out fourth for the 30-lap feature as Missouri driver Brian Brown grabbed the lead from his front row starting spot.

Brown, who won both events he competed in last weekend in Central PA, was looking to make it three straight but his run out front ended on lap 11 with a right rear flat tire.

This turned the lead over to fellow starter Brian Montieth, who led lap 12 before a red for Mike Walter halted action.

Dietrich was ready on the ensuing restart, using every inch of turn two to sneak by Montieth and take the lead but the race quickly returned to red after James McFadden’s attempted slide job resulted in a hard crash in turn four that also collected Greg Hodnett, who had worked his way up from his 12th starting spot.

With an open red flag, Hodnett’s team changed the top wing and he lined up third on the restart behind Dietrich and Montieth.

Hodnett disposed of Montieth on the restart and set his sights on Dietrich, who had opened a near three second lead at one point.

Hodnett began to close the gap on the fast running Dietrich and was running about two seconds off the pace when the Mike Heffner owned car went up in smoke with 20 laps down.

It was all Dietrich over the final laps but the action for the runner-up spot was fierce as Montieth, Tim Kaeding and Brock Zearfoss traded sliders several times before the checkered flag.

Dietrich crossed 1.321 seconds ahead of Montieth for his 11th win of the season with Kaeding third, Zearfoss fourth and Lucas Wolfe fifth.

Rounding out the top ten finishers were 14th starter Trey Starks, Kyle Reinhardt, Dale Blaney, Gerard McIntyre, Jr. and Mark Smith.

Brown paced the 21 car field in time trials with a lap of 15.272 seconds as heats were won by Kaeding, Wolfe and Walter. Montieth won the Dash.

Hayden Pascoe raced to his first win of the season in the 20-lap ServiceMaster Clean Central PA Legends feature.

Pascoe started fourth and dominated much of the event as he picked up the win over Travis Perry, eighth starting Bob Stough, 17th starting Don Leiby and Trent Yoder.

Harlon Leppo, Scott Houdeshell and Hayden Pascoe won heats for the 22 Central PA Legends.

The seventh and final BAPS 410 Sprint Series event will close out the season at Susquehanna Speedway on Saturday, October 28 when the Sprint Showdown for 410 Sprints will highlight the action. Joining the 410’s that day will be the 358 Sprints. Race time will be 4PM.

Susquehanna returns to action this coming Saturday night September 23rd on Hanover Auto Team Night featuring the Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman, Bernheisel Race Cars 358 Late Models, Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stocks and Superior Homes Extreme stocks. Racing begins at 7PM which will be the final race for the month of September.

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY

 16 September 2017 By Michael Batz

BROWN WINS ASCoC JIM NACE MEMORIAL NATIONAL OPEN IN FIRST CAREER SPRINT CAR START AT SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY SATURDAY

SELINSGROVE, Pa. -- Although Brian Brown of Grain Valley, Mo., had never been to Selinsgrove Speedway before, he had a connection to the speedway and the final race of the season that was run Saturday. The Jim Nace Memorial 35th Annual National Open was special to Brown because his engine builder, Charlie Garrett, had built engines for Nace’s sprint cars as well.

At the start of the 30-lap, $8,000-to-win All Star Circuit of Champions 410 sprint car main event, outside front row start Brown outran polesitter James McFadden into turn one. Brown led the field until a red flag on lap three was displayed for Caleb Armstrong who flipped on the back stretch.

The field restarted, but then TJ Stutts flipped in turn four to bring out the red flag again on lap four. No driver injuries were reported.

Third-place starter Brock Zearfoss was the car on the move when the green flag came back out. Zearfoss was soon third closing in on James McFadden.

McFadden began to close a straight-away down to car lengths as Brown tried to work through the lap traffic. Brown negotiated the lap cars cautiously while McFadden and Zearfoss pushed as hard as they could to close the gap. Zearfoss made the pass of McFadden for second before McFadden slowed.

McFadden’s car stopped on the front stretch with mechanical issues to bring out the caution on lap 12. The opportunity for Brown to have an open race track on lap 12 was just what he needed. Brown pulled away to a large lead over Zearfoss while Zearfoss battled with fifth-place starter Greg Hodnett.

Trey Starks started 21st after breaking in his heat race. By the half way mark, Starks, had driven into the seventh spot.

Brown was just catching the tail of the field again when the yellow flag was presented on lap 21 for the All Star point leader Chad Kemenah when his car came to a stop in turn two.

Zearfoss knew with only ten laps remaining he would need to make his move on the restart. Zearfoss dove to the inside of Brown in turn one, but Brown was too strong off the outside of the speedway taking the race lead back.

Brown did catch lap traffic with two laps to go, but this time Zearfoss gained no ground.

Brown led the remaining laps on his way to his first All Star win in the National Open.

In victory lane Brown credited his crew with their hard work and his sponsors for their support to allow him to come to Pennsylvania to compete.

“I guess a half mile is to my liking. It’s not the same exact layout as Knoxville, but it has its similarities. I never seen the place before tonight and we were quickest in hot laps here tonight,” said Brown in Victory Lane. “Open air was so important, as it is anywhere, and we were able to take advantage of it tonight.”

Brown, Zearfoss, and Hodnett were the podium finishers. Anthony Macri finished fourth ahead of Trey Starks. Starks, the night’s Fast Tees Fast Timer over the 40-car field, was the hard charger gaining 16 spots.

Lucas Wolfe finished in sixth followed Danny Dietrich, Ryan Smith, Jason Schultz, and Tony Stewart.

Heat race wins went to Tim Kaeding, Blane Heimbach, Ryan Smith, Anthony Macri, while Trey Starks won the B-Main.

McFadden and Brown won the Dash’s.

Tommy Slanker led every lap of the Pro Stock season finale. Slanker, the 2017 track champion, took the lead right at the drop of the green flag. Shaun Lawton spent the race chasing Slanker but had to settle for second. Dustin Snook was third.

Cory Long and Brandon Moser were the remaining cars in the top five. Sixth through tenth finishing spots were taken by Kurt Wray, John Troxell, Noah Jenson, Matt Hornberger, and Bill Conrad.

Kyle Bachman and Shaun Lawton won the heat races.

The speedway was battling the threat of fog for much of the main events after an early evening rain shower. The fog got too thick to complete the night’s 305 Sprint Car feature in a safe manner. The cars were on the track, but then sent to the pit area. The purse was split equally between the drivers in the feature event.

Tyler Reeser, Tyler Denochick, and Dave Grube won the heat races for the 305 Sprint Cars.

FRANKIE HERR DOMINATES SPORTSMAN 100 Geesaman Takes Street Stocks while Updegraff Gets Extreme Stock Win By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA…9/16/17 Heading into Saturday night’s 43rd annual Credit Connection Auto Sales Gary Wolford Sportsman 100 at Susquehanna Speedway, Frankie Herr had just four top ten finishes on the season. And none of those finishes were inside the top five.

But when the big money and all the laurels was on the line, it was the Carlisle, PA driver who made a snoozer out of the legendary race putting on a flag to flag dominating performance to capture his eighth career win in the biggest race of the season for the Super Sportsman.

After timing fourth, Herr lined up on the pole for the 100 lap test and would never look back but had plenty of cautions to keep the field on his bumper throughout the feature.

Twelve yellows and two red flags slowed the pace of the 100 lapper.

A three car crash on the start involving Rich Eichelberger, Dave Conrad, Jr. and Mike Enders quickly brought out the first yellow. Various single car incidents slowed action up through lap 73 when a red for a crash involving Justin Williams, Timmie Barrick and Chad Criswell.

Herr enjoyed big leads throughout the event and held a four second advantage when a lap 91 caution flew to close point leader Scott Dellinger on his bumper.

Dellinger, who started 11th didn’t have anything for Herr and then lost the runner-up spot to leading feature winner Kenny Edkin in the late laps but it was all Herr out front in his Devine Motorsports owned, Victory Lane Construction, Dirty Deeds Repair and Fabrication No. 70D.

Herr’s winnings included a $4,000 payday for the 100 lapper and another $3,419 in lap money for a big night of winnings totaling $7,419 for his first win of the season at Susquehanna. He also became the ninth different winner in the Sportsman this year. Edkin, who started fourth finished second with Dellinger, 15th starter Steve Fannasy and 10th starter Jay Fannasy competing the top five finishers.

Crossing sixth was Garrett Williamson trailed by Matt Ondek, Davey Walsh, 22na and Hard Charger Chad Smith and Nate Young.

Edkin paced the 27-car field in time trials with a lap of 17.287 seconds while the two qualifiers were won by Mike Enders and Davey Walsh.

Jonestown’s Jasen Geesaman raced to his second win of the season in the Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stock feature.

Bob Scott, Jr. set the pace during the first six laps before giving way to Geesaman who drove off from the field to post the win ahead of Scott, Chris Derr, Jim Palm and Craig Morgan with Jimmy Combs, Mike Potts, Matt Adams, Steve Dove and Joey Hoffer completing the top ten.

Geesaman and Adams won heats for the 20 street stock field.

Defending champion and current point leader Alex Updegraff continued his winning ways in Superior Homes Extreme Stock action taking his 11th win of the season.

Updegraff took control with eight laps complete and never looked back in the win over Michael Smith, Jeff Gill, Kyle Emig and Donnie Broderick. There were 10 Extreme Stocks pitside.

Susquehanna Speedway returns to action two times this week with the big Thursday night Thunder BAPS Auto Paints and Supplies 410 Sprint Series event Thursday night, September 21. It will be the sixth race in the seven race BAPS series . The ServiceMaster Clean Central PA Legends join the racing card beginning at 7PM.

Susquehanna then returns Saturday night September 23rd on Hanover Auto Team Night featuring the Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman, Bernheisel Race Cars 358 Late Models, Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stocks and Superior Homes Extreme stocks.

CURT MICHAEL WINS LAST LAP THRILLER IN URC/358 SPRINT CHALLENGE;

Bryan Bernheisel wires the field to win the Precise Racing Products 358 Late Model Feature

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 9/16/2017 - Ocean View, DE driver Curt Michael showed why he is a nine-time URC champion Saturday night at Lincoln Speedway as he took advantage of a last lap restart to slide under race-leader Doug Hammaker in the final turns to the checkered and hang on to win the special 25-lap MACH 1 Trailer Services URC/358 Sprint Challenge. In the process Michael not only collected the $3,000 winners’ purse, but the bragging rights for winning the URC/358 Sprint Challenge.

“I’m sure glad to win and take home MACH 1 Trailer Services $1,000…I appreciate it!, “said a jubilant Curt Michael in regards to the added race sponsorship money which raised the winner’s purse to $3,000 for the night.

The final lap drama was set up when a caution for debris was thrown as the leaders took the white flag with one lap to go. Sixth-starting Hammaker had taken the lead from polesitter and race-long leader Chris Coyle on the 15th lap and appeared to be on his way to the 25-lap feature win.

Seventh-starting Michael was frantically trying to keep pace with the leaders and got by Coyle for the runner-up spot a lap later on lap 16.

Michael got his first chance to challenge Hammaker for the top spot with a caution restart with three laps to go. But Hammaker got a good restart and easily kept Michael behind him.

Debris in turns one and two brought out the caution just as the leaders got the white flag signaling one lap to go, giving Michael one more shot at the win.

Michael was able to keep pace with Hammaker as they took the green in one-lap shoot-out to the checkers. Heading into the final turns to the checkered Michael dove to the bottom of turns three and four and was able to slide up in front of Hammaker as they exited the turn with the checkered flag waving. Hammaker tried to dive under Michael exiting the final turn and outrace him to the checkered. But he didn’t have enough speed to get it done as Michael edged out Hammaker for the win.

But the excitement didn’t end there.

As Michael and Hammaker took the checkered, Michael took his foot off the throttle and slowed. Hammaker appeared to still be at full throttle as they approached turn one and caught the right-front wheel Michaels. Hammaker then was launched into a series of violent end-over-end flips and came to a rest along the outer concrete wall with Michaels spinning on three wheels also sliding into the wall backwards.

After picking up the pieces of his damaged winning sprint car, Michaels’ Bill Gallagher-owned GEI/Valley Forge, Inc./Kruger Trailers/Lelands.com/BK Trucking was towed to the post-race scales and then finally to victory lane.

“I got a read on how (Hammaker) was restarting the race on the restart before that last one,” said Michael on his final lap restart strategy. “He got me on that restart before (lap 22), he caught me sleeping. That next one (the final lap) I stayed on him. I wasn’t sure if I could get a good enough run on him to slide him and win the race.”

Meanwhile Hammaker slowly got out of his destroyed car and was eventually transported to a local hospital where it was it later reported he had a fractured right leg, a very bruised left leg, and a sore right hand/wrist.

The enormity of the moment was not lost on Michael in victory lane.

“I can’t thank these guys enough who showed up,” exclaimed Michael when asked about the huge turn-out for the special URC/358 Challenge. “54 cars! URC winning the thing! I couldn’t thank them (racers) enough for showing up…we could have a real nice rivalry between URC and the 358s here. I also want to thank these fans for showing up. I know we’re up against the Selinsgrove National Open tonight but I think we put on a pretty good show for the fans that did show up.”

And the show didn’t stop with just the first and second place cars of Michael and Hammaker. 23rd-starting Tyler Ross advanced 20 positions after 25 laps to finish third. Early-race leader Coyle settled for fourth and 12th-starting Josh Weller fifth.

Completing the top-10 were 21st-starting Todd Gracey, Scott Fisher, 15th-starting Brent Shearer, Bryn Gohn, and 16th-starting Ashley Cappetta.

Heats for the 54 sprinters were won by Chris Allen, Jr., Chandler Leiby, Jeff Halligan, Gohn, and Hammaker. Twin consolation were won by Gracey and Steve Drevicki.

Jonestown’s Bryan Bernheisel was the class of the Precise Racing Products 358 Late Model field as he led all 20 laps from his pole position to pick-up his first career Lincoln Speedway win.

But the win was not easy as he had to hold off Gene Kanub, Bobby Beard, Cam Zeigler, and Robbie Emory over the closing laps for the win.

Completing the top-10 were Ryan Walls, Alan Sagi, Precise Racing Products Series point leader Travis Mease, Sean Merkel, and Bryon Sipe.

Heats for the 24 358 Late Models on hand were won by Bryan Bernheisel, Cam Zeigler and Bobby Beard.

Next Saturday, Saturday, September 23rd, Lincoln will hosts its’ biggest race of the year with the FOURTH ANNUAL “DIRT CLASSIC” for the 410 Sprints ($20,000 to win) PLUS FIREWORKS. Time trials are scheduled for 7:30 PM. Pit gates will open at 3:30 PM, admission for advanced ticket holders 3:45 PM, with race night tickets going on sale at 4 PM.

Matt Campbell Gets First Career Grove Sprint Car Win, Hammaker Wins 358s

9/15/17

Mechanicsburg – Matt Campbell of Fawn Grove picked up his first career 410 Sprint car win Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway, taking the lead from Tim Wagaman on the 10th tour of the 25-lap feature.

.

The 19-year-old from Fawn Grove, a co-National 410 Rookie-of-the-Year last year, has been fast at the Grove before, and finally put together a complete performance earning $3,600 for the win.

Wagaman started on the pole and led the opening two circuits of the 25-lap main event while racing fiercely with Jared Esh, who started second.

The pair see-sawed for the lead repeatedly before Esh crossed the line with three laps complete as the leader by just a few feet over Wagaman.

Wagaman then passed Esh back in the first and second turns but Esh battled back to the inside on the backchute and the pair raced wheel to wheel and wing to wing into the third turn with neither pilot giving an inch.

The end result found Esh backing his car up across the racetrack in the third corner before bringing out the red flag after massive contact with the outside rail.

Esh was transported by ambulance complaining of neck and back pain.

Anthony Macri, who was running third at the time, spun to avoid the crash. Under the red flag, Brian Montieth, who would have restarted fourth, was pushed to the pits.

Wagaman controlled the restart with sixth starter Campbell now in second and Wagaman was running the cushion as Campbell made the inside groove work to close in on the leader lap after lap, especially right through the middle of the second corner.

An inside move off the second corner got Campbell by Wagaman for the lead and Campbell completed lap 10 as the leader just before the caution flew for a stopped Steve Buckwalter on the front chute.

Campbell stretched out his lead over Wagaman and Rick Lafferty on the restart as the race raged behind them between Lucas Wolfe, James McFadden, Freddie Rahmer and Brock Zearfoss who were all battling for a top five finish.

Campbell drove around slower cars with ease during the last half of the race, cruising to his first career Grove 410 win after scoring three in the 358 sprint division.

His final margin of victory was 4.578.

Wagaman scored his best career Grove finish in second. Lafferty finished third and Wolfe took fourth back from McFadden on the final lap.

Point leader Freddie Rahmer started 14th and finished sixth. Danny Dietrich, Brock Zearfoss, 17th starter Greg Hodnett and 22nd starter Alan Krimes rounded out the top 10.

Campbell, Wagaman and Lafferty won heat races for the 26-car field.

Doug Hammaker of Grantville took the lead from Jordan Givler following a lap eight restart and drove away top win the 358-sprint feature.

The restart occurred after Brie Hershey flipped in the first corner.

Hammaker earned $1,500 for the fifth victory of his career in the division at the track.

Givler, Kevin Nouse, Chase Dietz and Rich Eichelberger completed the top five.

Kevin Nouse, Cody Keller and Brett Wanner won the 358 sprint heats for the 24-car field.

YORK HAVEN, PA…9/9/17 . Anytime Gene Knaub enters a 358 late model race, it’s a good bet that he will be in the hunt when the checkered flag falls.

Case in point for the 7th annual Creekside Auto Sales Topless 50 presented by Bernheisel Race Cars Saturday night at Susquehanna Speedway where the Dover driver dominated the marquee event, leading all 50 laps to post the huge $5,000 payday.

9/9/17

Port Royal – Aboard the Don Kreitz Jr. owned No. 69K, Lance Dewease of Fayetteville rode to victory in the 50th annual Tuscarora 50 for sprint cars at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night, recording triumph in the richest event held in oval history.

With the victory, Dewease completed a clean sweep of the weekend’s Tuscarora 50 races sanctioned by the All Star Circuit of Champions Sprints at Port Royal.

After claiming Friday’s Night Before The 50 checkers worth $5,000, Dewease took home $51,350 including lap money for his run in Saturday’s Tuscarora 50 itself, to push his weekend earnings to $56,350.

The victory was the Fayetteville flyers unprecedented sixth tally in the prestigious event, with no other pilot owning more than four wins and it gave car owner Don Kreitz Jr. of Sinking Spring his record-tying fifth win in the race as an owner.

Dewease won the race last year for Kreitz and Kreitz himself drove his own machine to three wins, thus tying Al Hamilton and Bob Weikert, who also own five Tuscarora checkers.

Without questions, Dewease’s most important race of the night occurred in his running of the events fourth heat race.

Having started second in the eight-lap affair, Dewease had to contend with Mark Smith and Greg Hodnett to earn the sixth starting spot in the main event.

A win in his heat would give him that starting spot and on the start Dewease fell back to third, behind Smith and third starter Hodnett.

Dewease brought the fans to their feet as he rallied from behind to dig past Hodnett for second, commanding his car to maneuver to the front in a race-long battle to get the top spot.

After battling hard for the win, he was able to get by Smith with a rousing pass for control and those heat race battles set the pilot up for his good fortunes in the feature although he destroyed his tires in the process of digging to get the heat victory.

In the 25-mile, 50-lap, 50th annual Tuscarora 50 feature, polesitter Ryan Smith of Kunkletown took the lead when action began over Danny Dietirch and Dewease on the first lap, who had gotten a great start.

Dewease made relatively quick work of Dietrich for second, motoring into the spot while using the low groove on just the third tour.

It then took Dewease only three circuits to run down Smith’s No. 94 and drive by for control on the seventh tour.

From there, the leader worked lapped traffic for the balance of the non-stop first 25-lap segment of the race and by the time the mandatory red flag for refueling appeared on lap 25, Dewease held a 3.762 second advantage over Smith.

Ninth starter Brock Zearfoss drove into contention while also battling for the track title on the 19th tour, getting by Dietrich for third, where he would restart after the refueling period.

Dietrich restarted with the fourth spot and Joey Saldana restarted fifth.

The second non-stop, 25-lap segment would prove to be all Dewease on the restart and for the duration as with 20 laps to go the gap between first and second was 2.886 seconds.

Dewease was able to work the bottom, middle and high grooves whenever needed to hold onto firm command of the race and ended up taking his 106th career Port Royal sprint car win by 3.948 seconds ahead of Ryan Smith.

Zearfoss would cross the finish line in third and in doing so the Jonestown pilot pushed himself into a scant point lead that netted him the 2017 Weikert’s Livestock Port Royal Speedway track championship over Dylan Cisney of Port Royal.

Friday, September 8, 2017 Trail-Way Speedway Hanover, PA For Immediate Release

UPCOMING EVENTS: Fri., September 16, 2017 – AMA Motorcycle Short Track (Gates open at 3:00 p.m., Racing begins at 6:00 p.m.) Sat., September 23, 2017 – Kevin Gobrecht Memorial/National Open – 270 & 600 Micro Sprints, Central PA Legends (Gates open at 3:00 p.m., Racing begins at 6:00 p.m.)

TYLER ROSS, GARRETT BARD, CHRIS TRANSEAU, & BRIAN WALLS RACE WINNERS, STEVE OWINGS, BRAD WEBER, & BRIAN WALLS TRACK CHAMPS AT TRAIL-WAY

HANOVER, PA (9/8/2017) – Lincoln University’s Tyler Ross showed them how it’s done at Trail-Way Speedway Friday night.

Ross stepped away from the 410 sprint division to pilot the Dick Smith-owned, Tom Rumsey Incorporated #41B to the win in his first Trail-Way appearance of the year.

Hard charger Steve Owings, who started ninth, finished second and claimed his first “358” sprint car track title in the process.

“Steve was definitely better than me,” said Ross after scoring his first Trail-Way win, “Steve got by me square and fair but the caution saved me. This is the same right rear tire that Jeff Halligan won with last week, and it’s pretty well worn out.”

Owings actually slid under Ross for the race lead in turns one and two of the final lap, but the caution came out for Andrew Frye, who came to a stop after striking the wall just in front of the leaders. That gave the lead back to Ross for the restart, and he held off Owings by two carlengths at the end.

“I tried, but yellow flag kept coming out,” said Owings when interviewed about his track title, “We were counting cars for a while until they got down to 14. We didn’t win the fight, but we won the war. We’ve been racing here a long time…back to motorcycles and micro-sprints…and I’m honored to be track champ. This is a great track, and it’s fun to race here.”

Third through fifth were Dwight Leppo, Mike Bittinger, and 12th-starting Isaac Sneeringer, who began the night with a shot at the track title.

Qualifiers for the 20 “358” sprinters were won by Bittinger, Owings, and Leppo.

Garrett Bard made a last-lap pass over Zane Rudisill in turns one and two following a restart to claim the win in the 20-lap 600cc micro-sprint feature. Jim Young also got by Rudisill in the final turns to finish second, with Rudisill settling for third, Kameron Morral fourth, and 12th-starting Bradley Weber fifth. Weber was the event’s hard charger and also earned the 2017 track title.

Heats for the 15 micros were won by Young and Hannah Riser, who was uninjured in a 19th-lap flip in the feature.

Chris Transeau picked up his third win of the year in the 20-lap Central PA Legends feature, holding off Australian Hayden Pascoe, with Travis Mc Clelland, Chandler Pagnotta, and 11th-starting Rick Hartwig rounding out the top five.

Heats for the 16 Legends were won by Trent Yoder and Scott Smith, who was unable to start the feature.

Brian Walls ended the night as the race winner, hard charger, and track champ in the street stock division. Walls started eighth in the eight-car field and had the lead by the end of the third lap. He led the rest of the way, with Travis Leh, Jeremy Stremmel, Gene Miller, and Kenny Startzman completing the top five.

Walls also won the lone qualifier for the eight street stocks on hand.

Next Saturday, September 16, Trail-Way is back in action with the final AMA Motorcycle Short Track event of the 2017 racing season. Gates open at 3:00 p.m. with racing scheduled to begin at 7:45 p.m.

The following Saturday, September 23, Trail-Way hosts the Kevin Gobrecht Memorial/National Open featuring the 270 and 600 Micro Sprints. The Central PA Legends are also scheduled to compete. Pre entry forms are available on the Trail-Way Speedway website (trail-wayspeedway.com).

Dewease Beats Brown For Port Royal Night Before The 50 Laurels In 65-car Field

Rine Wins Renninger Memorial Moon Shine Late Model Series Finale

Coleby Frye claims Moon Shine series title, Mike Lupfer take Port Royal late model crown

9/8/17

Port Royal – Lance Dewease of Fayetteville claimed Friday night’s 30-lap Night Before The Tuscarora 50 All Star Circuit of Champions Sprint Cars feature at Port Royal Speedway, taking home $5,000 for his third win in the history of the event after out dueling Missouri’s Brian Brown for the victory.

An amazing 65-car field of sprint cars entered competition for the event with the 50th annual Tuscarora 50 paying $50,000 to win looms on Saturday night.

In the 33-lap Butch Renninger Memorial Moon Shine Camo Rt. 35 Challenge Series finale, Danville’s Jeff Rine pocketed the winner’s loot while Coleby Frye of Dover took home the Moon Shine Camo Series title.

The first lap of the Night Before the 50 was slowed when point leader Dylan Cisney came up with a busted racer on the frontstretch.

And then the second lap was also slowed when Tony Stewart rolled to a stop with a blown motor, also on the frontstretch.

Brown of Grain Valley, Missouri, started on the pole in the event and was leading early over Mike Wagner, who took second from second-starter TJ Stutts on the second tour.

After a brief challenge from Wagner on the lap two restart, Brown was able to pull away with the lead while Dewease worked his way into contention.

He was able to get by Stutts for third with five away and then overtook Wagner for second on the 10th tour as the leaders entered the rear of the field.

With the lead, Brown worked his way through traffic at a dizzying pace while Dewease methodically closed down the distance between himself and the leader.

Brown made his best time buzzing around the top side while Dewease proved to work best when he ran the middle to bottom groove and as Brown worked traffic on the high side, Dewease would use that bottom groove to take control with five laps to go.

After a skirmish a few laps earlier during which time Dewease was able to get under Brown for control, the Midwest driver was able to slingshot back into control, leaving Dewease to lick his wounds and run him down again.

And then as the pair raced to the five-to-go mark, Brown got bottled up in traffic in the fourth corner and that was all Dewease needed to drive underneath for control.

Brown kept it close for a lap or two after giving up the lead before loosing ground at the finish.

TJ Stutts rode home a solid third followed by Greg Hodnett and Kerry Madsen, who started 10th.

Sixth through 10th went to Danny Dietrich, Mike Wagner, Dale Blaney, Danny Holtgraver and Ryan Smith.

The victory was the 105th of Dewease’s career at the oval and his fifth of the season at the track.

Heats for the 65-car field went to Trenton Sheaffer, Brady Bacon, TJ Stutts, Greg Hodnett and Brian Brown.

The C Main was won by Brandon Matus with Caleb Armstrong taking the D Main. Trey Starks copped the B Main.

Twin four-lap dashes went to Brown and Stutts with Brown setting a new four-lap track record of 1:04.111 seconds, eclipsing the old mark set by Dale Blaney in 1996.

Kerry Madsen set fast time with a lap of 15. 443 seconds.

Polesitter Jason Covert led from the start of the 33-lap Butch Renninger Memorial for super late models with Jeff Miller following.

A restart with two laps completed found sixth starter Jeff Rine already up to third.

Rine used the outside lane to blast around Miller on the restart and set his sights on Covert.

Covert entered traffic with the lead on the 11th tour and was heavily pressured by Rine over the ensuing laps before Rine got control on the 15th tour.

The pair actually swapped the lead twice on the lap with Covert going back out in front on the backchute only to again succumb to Rine as the pair traversed the third and fourth corner.

Once in front, Rine went unheeded to the victory that was worth $3,952 including lap money.

Ninth starter Coleby Frye worked the field to drive into second on the 21st tour however Frye was unable to challenge for the win, instead finishing 1.716 second behind at the finish.

Covert rode home third followed by Chad Hollenbeck and 25th starter Andy Haus.

Sixth through 10th went to Gary Stuhler, Mike Lupfer, Jeff Miller, Tim Wilson and Marvin Winters.

Heats went to Lupfer, Miller, Frye and Hollenbeck with Matt Sponaugle taking the consolation race.

Lupfer wrapped up the 2017 Port Royal track title with his run.

Frye claimed the Moon Shine Camo Rt. 35 Challenge Series title over Hollenbeck, Rine, Lupfer and Dylan Yoder.

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY JIM NACE MEMORIAL 35th ANNUAL NATIONAL OPEN FOR 410 SPRINT CARS WILL CLOSE OUT 2017 RACING SEASON SEPTEMBER 16

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Selinsgrove Speedway will present its crown jewel open wheel event, the Jim Nace Memorial 35th Annual National Open for 410 sprint cars sanctioned by the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions, at 7 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 16.

The Nace Memorial National Open will be a 30-lap tribute race paying $8,000 to win and $500 to start out of the $30,000 event. The Fast Tees Fast Time Award will pay $300. Time trials, heat races, and a B-main will be the qualifying format.

Joining the 410 sprint cars on the Sept. 16 racing card will be the 305 sprint cars in a 20-lap main event. Track gates will open at 4 p.m. and qualifying will start at 7 p.m.

For the eighth straight year, the 410 Open will honor the life and racing career of Nace, the track’s only five-time sprint car champion who died in November 2009 following a seven-year battle with cancer.

In last year’s race, Lucas Wolfe of Mechanicsburg scored his second career victory in the Open and set a new 30-lap track record for 410 sprint cars at the Superspeedway of Dirt Track Racing. Wolfe was also an Open winner in 2005.

Fred Rahmer, of Salfordville, is the track’s only five-time winner of the Open with victories in 1995, 1996, 1997, 1999, and 2000.

In 2014, Greg Hodnett of Spring Grove became the third driver to win the Open four times. Hodnett’s other Open victories came in 1998, 2004, and 2007. Todd Shaffer of Millerstown is the other driver on the Open career win list with four championships in 1993, 1994, 2001, and 2008.

In 2013, Pat Cannon of Etters joined the late Maynard Yingst of Linglestown and Rahmer as only the third driver to win three consecutive National Opens. Cannon also won in 2012 and 2011. Yingst’s wins in the Open occurred in 1983, 1984, and 1985.

Other past repeat winners include Lance Dewease of Fayetteville (2002, 2009, 2010) and Don Kreitz Jr. of Sinking Spring (1986 and 1992).

Single-time winners of the Open include Dave Blaney of Cortland, Ohio (1987); Keith Kauffman of Mifflintown (1988); Doug Wolfgang of Sioux Falls, S.D. (1989); Sammy Swindell of Bartlett, Tenn. (1990); Johnny Mackison Jr. of York (1991); Stevie Smith of Broken Arrow, Okla. (2003); Chad Layton of Harrisburg (2006); and Danny Dietrich of Gettysburg (2015).

The National Open will mark the third and final appearance of the season by the 410 sprint cars at Selinsgrove Speedway. Wolfe won the Ray Tilley Classic on June 16 and Rico Abreau of California scored the PA Speedweek Finale on July 9.

The All Star sanction of the track’s National Open will be a first since 1991 when Mackison Jr. scored the victory over Kenny Jacobs in one of the closest finishes in sprint car racing history at the speedway.

In the 15 All Star-sanctioned sprint car races that have been held at Selinsgrove Speedway, there has never been a repeat winner. Previous All Star winners at the track include Bobbie Adamson (1970), Mike Lloyd (1973), Randy Wolfe (1982), Len Krautheim (1986), Doug Wolfgang (1987), Kenny Jacobs (1990), Frankie Kerr (1991), Cris Eash (1991), Johnny Mackison Jr. (1991), Dale Blaney (1996), Keith Kauffman (1997), Greg Hodnett (1998), Fred Rahmer (1999), Todd Shaffer (2000), and Danny Dietrich (2016).

Dietrich Stuns Port Royal Crowd And Zearfoss For Labor Day Classic Win

Gettysburg driver wins third career Classic and second in a row

Stock cars go to Eric Irvin and Eric Boozel

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

9/4/17

Port Royal – For the third year in a row, the Port Royal Speedway Labor Day Classic for sprint cars was a true classic with multiple leaders and action at the front that kept the fans guessing all the way to the finish.

In the end on Monday afternoon, it was Gettysburg’s Danny Dietrich taking his third career Labor Day checkers and second in a row in a rousing finish that even surprised Brock Zearfoss, who exited turn four thinking he was going to win the race along with the throng of fans in attendance.

The 66th annual running of the prestigious event, sponsored by Foss Jewelers of Lewistown, saw Dietrich take home $4,000 for the payday and primed him with confidence for this weekends two-day, 50th annual Tuscarora 50 races.

In the 355 econo-late model main it was Petersburg’s Eric Irvin taking the victory while Eric Boozel took the four cylinder main.

Dietrich started the 66th annual Port Royal Labor Day Classic from the 10th spot while second starter Dale Blaney took command at the start.

Blaney was leading with five laps down when the caution flag unfurled for a stopped Vince Snyder.

At that time Brock Zearfoss was hounding Blaney for the lead while Dietrich raced sixth.

The last 20 laps went non-stop in what turned into a hair raising affair with Zearfoss ducking under Blaney for control on a few occasions before finally getting the top spot with a low swoop in the first turn with 14 away.

Meanwhile, the cars of Lucas Wolfe, Dylan Cisney and Dietrich were working forward, battling between themselves for position under a blanket while gaining on the leader.

Dietrich made his presence known for sure at the front on the 18th lap when he made a bold two-car pass of both Wolfe and Blaney to blast from fifth into second.

And with that the race was on as Zearfoss worked traffic and Dietrich cut into his advantage.

Still, Zearfoss looked relatively safe at the front as he rode the cushion nearly flawlessly as the race neared its finish.

However Dietrich was like a lion stalking his prey, repeatedly swooping across the third and fourth turns to catch the cushion while trying to cut down the leader’s advantage.

And by the time the white flag unfurled, Dietrich was within striking distance but still in need of a fantastic move in order to steal the win with another final, last turns swoop in the third and fourth corners.

However Zearfoss slammed the door in turn three and thwarted what may have been Dietrich’s swoop.

And with that, Dietrich rode the cushion through the turns as Zearfoss slid up and caught the cushion off of the fourth corner in order to jet toward the finish line.

Zearfoss then shot onto the frontchute headed for the checkers and in fact was seen pumping his fist out of the cockpit as he sped toward the checkers.

And just then, a little slip by Zearfoss and a tremendous bite by Dietrich off of turn four as he turned the car down across the frontstrech stunned the fans and Zearfoss as Dietrich drove by for the payday as the cars got to the edge of the stage, just feet from the finish line.

The margin of victory for Dietrich was a scant .111 seconds.

Dietrich went to victory lane, the fans were left speechless and Zearfoss was relegated to bridesmaid.

Dylan Cisney kept his title hopes alive with just two races to go this weekend by driving his way into third at the finish although his margin in the points is now shrunk to 85 markers over Zearfoss.

Lucas Wolfe was fourth followed by Blaney.

Sixth through 10th went to Mike Wagner, Mike Walter II., Kody Lehman, Greg Hodnett and TJ Stutts.

Heats went to Wolfe, Cisney and Wagner.

Eric Irvin led all 18 laps in the econo late model main to pick up the victory by 2.421 seconds over Ryan Walls.

Irvin started sixth in the field for the victory.

Third was Shaun Miller with Tim Krape in fourth and Tim Fedder finishing fifth.

Heats went to Shaun Miller, Irvin and Tim Krape.

Eric Boozel led all 15 laps of the four cylinder main for the win over Kent Leonard, Travis Brown, Matt Worley and Justin Williamson.

BROCK ZEARFOSS WINS BILLY KIMMEL MEMORIAL AND BRIE HERSHEY TAKES K1 SUMMER SERIES FINALE FOR 358’S

MECHANICSBURG, PA – Brock Zearfoss’ late-summer hot streak continued Sunday night at Williams Grove Speedway as he scored the Billy Kimmel Memorial win for the Sprint cars.

He earned $3,800 for his second Grove win of the season and fifth overall since beating the Outlaws at Williams Grove in July.

Meanwhile, in the K1 Summer Series finale for the 358 Sprints, it was Brie Hershey scoring the win earning $1,500 and Chase Dietz earning the series championship.

It was the second Grove win of the season for “The Jonestown Jet” in the Aaron Long No. 58.

“We had a heck of a car tonight,” said Zearfoss. “Aaron and the boys have been working hard. We’ve been trying some stuff after the Outlaw race. Friday night we weren’t so good. Tonight, we came back with basic stuff and here we stand.”

His first Grove win came in July against the Outlaws.

“My confidence is sky high right now,” said Zearfoss. “Once you beat the best in the world, you feel like you can do anything. My crew gives me great cars week-in and week-out, I just get to drive the thing. It’s a great feeling. A few years ago, I was down in the dumps wondering if I could even do this anymore. This sport will really drag you down and it will really get you high. When you get on them highs, you have to ride them the best you can.”

Chad Trout slowed on the backstretch on the opening lap bringing out the caution flag.

Polesitter Eric Tomecek led the first lap over Matt Campbell as sixth starter Zearfoss blasted into third.

The red flag flew with two laps completed when Chris Arnold and Kody Lehman crashed in turn three. They were okay.

Tomecek controlled the restart as Zearfoss blasted around Campbell for second. Zearfoss couldn’t get to the leader as Brian Montieth passed Brandon Rahmer and then Rodney Westhafer moving into fourth.

The top three were close as they raced down the frontstretch completing lap eight.

Tomecek blew an engine coming off turn two. Zearfoss took evasive active driving inside of him. Campbell also moved to miss Zearfoss and hit the inside fence, but continued. The red flag stopped the race. Tomecek was okay.

“I was lucky enough to get below him and hold on to second at the moment and assume the lead,” said Zearfoss.

Zearfoss led the field down for the restart. Montieth went after Campbell, but couldn’t make the pass.

Zearfoss led by 1.476 seconds at the half-way point. Montieth passed Campbell with eight to go and then Rahmer did as well.

Montieth blew a tire and hit the third turn fence giving up second with six to go. Campbell pitted under caution with a flat tire giving up fourth.

Zearfoss led Rahmer and Rodney Westhafer, who was driving a Billy Kimmel tribute car No.47, for the lap 19 restart.

Rahmer tried a third turn slider on the leader following the restart. He could only get next to Zearfoss, who then pulled away over the final laps winning the Kimmel Memorial by 1.345.

“It’s a great feeling to win a memorial race,” said Zearfoss. “I didn’t get to race with Billy, but I knew of him. He was definitely one of those up and comers. It’s a shame his life got cut short, but he was doing what he loved. I can’t thank the family enough for sticking with it in the sport and doing everything that they do. It’s greatly appreciated.”

B. Rahmer’s runner-up was his best-ever Grove finish. Westhafer, 13th starter TJ Stutts and Cory Haas completed the top five. Lucas Wolfe, Danny Dietrich, Alan Krimes, point leader Freddie Rahmer and Greg Hodnett rounded out the top 10. Stutts earned a $500 Hard Charger Award from the Beerhill Gang.

Eight-lap heat races for the 22 cars in the 410 Sprints were won by Westhafer, Dietrich and Hodnett.

Shai Morris started on the pole and grabbed the lead of the 358 feature that was marred by two red flags in the first five laps. A third red flag occurred on the lap five restart in turn one involving Rich Eichelberger and TJ DeHaven. No injuries were reported.

Morris led until lap 20 when Nyle Berkes used an inside move off turn four to take the top spot. The caution flew setting up a five-lap dash to the finish.

Fifth starter Brie Hershey of Dillsburg moved to second on the restart and stalked the leader. With the white flag waving, Hershey raced to the outside of Berkes coming off turn four. She squeezed between him and the wall taking the lead.

She controlled the final lap picking up the win over Berkes, 16th starter Chase Dietz, 12th starter Doug Hammaker and 11th starter Kevin Nouse. Morris, Cody Keller, Jared Esh, Chris Frank and Chad Trout rounded out the top 10. Dietz was named the series champion.

“I tried to keep my momentum up,” said Hershey. “I knew everybody was behind me. I thought if I could keep my speed up I’d be okay. That’s the most fun race I’ve run in a while. I’m still processing it.”

Eight-lap heat races for the 28 cars in the 358 Sprints were won by Kody Hartlaub, Rich Eichelberger and Hershey. Matt Findley won the consolation.

FROM WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY

SEPTEMBER 1, 2017

GREG HODNETT SWEEPS WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY WINNING VAN MAY TRIBUTE FOR 410’S AND KRAMER WILLIAMSON MEMORIAL FOR URC AND PATRIOT 360 SPRINTS

MECHANICSBURG, PA – Greg Hodnett won the season opener at Williams Grove Speedway in March, but had been held out of 410 Sprint car victory lane since then.

Hodnett, of Spring Grove, changed that Friday night as he drove to victory in the 25-lap Van May Tribute race paying $4,069 to win. He returned to win the 360- Sprint car portion of the program as well earning $3,000.

“We came out and won the first night, but since that time it has been pretty few and far between as far as good runs,” said Hodnett. “We had a good run going at the Outlaw show and got rained out, unfortunately. It has been about a month since we’ve been here, but fortunately for us, we got a great starting spot and took advantage of it.”

Hodnett started second in Mike Heffner’s 27 and took the lead over Brian Montieth and TJ Stutts to start the 410 feature. He built a 1.654 second lead in five laps.

He reached lapped traffic with eight laps completed. Montieth began to close and Hodnett’s lead was down to under one second.

They were out of lapped traffic, but the caution flew on lap nine when Troy Fraker stopped on the backstretch.

Hodnett controlled the restart as point leader Freddie Rahmer drove by Stutts and into third. Hodnett increased his lead to over two seconds. Rahmer was racing well along the inside groove taking second from Montieth with 11 to go.

He closed quickly on Hodnett and was right there as they completed lap 19. Hodnett went low into turn three blocking Rahmer’s line as they raced around lapped cars.

“I knew he got into second and I figured he was running the middle bottom, so I decided to change lanes,” said Hodnett. “He has been really good and I figured I’d better try it. I was having a tough time getting by lapped cars off the corners up high.”

That was as close as Rahmer would get as Hodnett pulled away again over the final laps winning by 1.230 seconds over Rahmer. Montieth, Lucas Wolfe, and Stutts completed the top five. Danny Dietrich, Alan Krimes, Steve Buckwalter, Cory Haas and Matt Campbell rounded out the top 10.

Stutts set fast time over the 21-car field with a lap of 16.465. Buckwalter, Chad Trout and Krimes won the heat races.

In the Kramer Williamson Memorial for the United Racing Club and Patriot 360 Sprints, Mark Smith grabbed the lead from Trey Starks as they raced down the frontstretch to complete lap three.

The red flag stopped the race for a backstretch crash including Eddie Strada and JJ Grasso. No drivers were hurt.

On the restart, Jared Zimbardi hit the inside turn one fence and crashed hard. He was removed from the car and transported to the hospital for observation. He was talking to emergency workers.

Hodnett drove by Starks and into second on the restart. He went after Smith taking the lead in turn two the next time around.

Another caution slowed the pace on lap seven. Hodnett controlled the restart and drove away.

The caution flew with six laps to go, but Hodnett was not to be denied as he got a good restart again and led the final laps to score the win over Smith. Lucas Wolfe raced to the third over the final laps. Jason Shultz and Starks completed the top five. Steve Buckwalter, Kevin Nagy, Curt Michael, Josh Weller and Robbie Stillwaggon rounded out the top 10.

The 360 heats for the 42 cars went to JJ Grasso, Robbie Stillwaggon, Lucas Wolfe, Mark Smith and Trey Starks. Cody Keller and Adam Carberry won the B-mains.

HALLIGAN WINS TRAIL-WAY FEATURE FOR CLEAN SWEEP OF LINCOLN/TRAILWAY “SHOOTOUT”;

HANOVER, PA (9/1/2017) – Jeff Halligan won both the battle and the war at Trail-Way Speedway Friday night.

A re-draw placed Halligan on the pole for the 25-lap feature, and the Ephrata driver led every lap to score his second career win at Trail-Way. He also became the first driver in the history of the event to win both ends of the Lincoln/Trail-Way “Shootout.”

“It’s awesome to win both races,” said Halligan upon exiting the Tom Rumsey-owned Dixon Heating & Plumbing/Creekside Auto Sales #41 in victory lane, “It’s hard to win here. The track’s always the same, but some nights we’re a rocket and some nights we’re junk.”

“The lapped cars did a heck-of-a job,” said Halligan, “I was one of those cars in the past, and they were racing for position and I had to wait for the right time to get by. I love to race here.”

While Halligan dominated the event, the battle for second was torrid. Steve Owings made contact with Joe Trone, Jr. on turns one and two of the final lap as the two raced for second, with both cars spinning out. That handed second over to Mike Bittinger, who finished there. Isaac Sneeringer, who did a “360” in turn four earlier in the event, came back to finish third, with 11th-starting Dwight Leppo and 13th-starting Colt White crossing fourth and fifth.

Owings and Trone finished 10th and 11th.

Finishing second through eighth in the Lincoln/Trail-Way “Shootout” were Dalton Dietrich, Owings, Leppo, Ashley Cappetta, Cody Fletcher, Austen Treuchet, and Trone.

Brian Marriott claimed the Mason-Dixon title by picking up his second win of the year in the 270cc micro-sprint feature. He entered the event second in points behind Levi Peck, but Peck was involved in a lap nine spin with Joe Long, Jr., and was credited with a 15th-place finish, handing the championship to Marriott. Michael Boer came from 15th starting spot to cross second, with Shannon Weaver, 12th-starting Zachary Cool and Steven Cox, completing the top five.

Heats for the 19 micros were won by Marriott and Peck.

Brian Walls came from last to first to win the street stock feature and claim the 2017 track title. Travis Leh, Dalton Myers, Gene Miller, and Cory Weishaar finished second through fifth.

Heats for the 12 street stocks were won by Walls and Mike Goodwin, whose car was heavily damaged on the front stretch in the feature.

Robbie Carroll raced to his fourth win of the year in the 15-lap limited stock feature. Carroll started ninth and took the lead from race long leader Cody Klinedinst on lap five. He led the rest of the way, with 10th-starting Terry Hartlaub second and Klinedinst third.

With his fourth-place finish, Jason Chronister claimed his first-ever track championship. Jeff Foster rounded out the top five.

Heats for the 26 limited stocks were won by Foster, Kyle Rohrbaugh, and Hartlaub.

Next Friday, September 8, Trail-Way returns with the final appearance in 2017 for the Hoosier Tire Mid Atlantic 358 Sprint Cars. The 600 Micro Sprints, Street Stocks and Central PA Legends will also be in action. This will be the final point race for those Trail-Way divisions. Gates open at 5:30 p.m., with heats scheduled to begin at 7:45 p.m.

SHOCK & AWE FROM BRIAN MONTIETH IN NON-STOP 410 FEATURE AT TRAIL-WAY; Brad Weber holds off Tyler Walton in 600cc micro-spints

HANOVER, PA (8/27/2017) – Phoenixville’s Brian Montieth took home all the marbles in Sunday night’s Second Annual Armin Hostetter Memorial for 410 sprint cars at Trail-Way Speedway.

In addition to claiming the $3,500 top prize, Montieth also won the Beer Hill Gang’s $350 bonus as the event’s hard charger and the $1,000 bonus for winning the Lincoln/Susquehanna/Trail-Way tri-track “Shootout” for 410 sprint cars, a total of $4,850 in prize money for the night.

“I didn’t see this place ‘til a little while ago,” said Montieth upon exiting the Jerry Parrish owned Premier Auto Works/Auto Locator/Beer Hill Gang #21 in victory lane, “and it’s a racey little place.”

It was Montieth’s second-ever run at Trail-Way, finishing one position better than his runner-up finish to Brent Marks last year.

Young upstart Landon Myers of York drew the pole for the 29-lap event run in memory of the late Bob Weikert, and led the first eight laps before third-starting Danny Dietrich took the lead on lap nine. Montieth, who started sixth, drove under Myers for second on lap ten and quickly closed on Dietrich as they raced through heavy lapped traffic.

Montieth then drove around both a lapped car and low-riding Dietrich to take the lead in turns three and four of lap 13, and led the rest of the way for his first career Trail-Way win.

“It’s a lot of fun here, and it’s easy to drive when the car is right,” said Montieth, “It’s a lot of fun here.”

Dietrich settled for second, with Lucas Wolfe third, Myers holding on for fourth, and Dwayne Gutshall fifth. They were the only five cars on lead lap at the end of the non-stop event.

Sixth through tenth were Cory Haas, Zach Euculano, Gerard McIntyre, Jr., Dwight Leppo, and Glenndon Forsythe.

The entire night was caution-free for the super sprints, with McIntyre, Forsythe, and Dietrich winning the qualifying events for the 19 cars in attendance. McIntyre’s heat win established a new 10-lap track record of 2 minutes, 17.75 seconds, breaking the old track record held by Fred Rahmer (2:18.96). Two of the three heats were faster than the previous track record.

With the win, Montieth also claimed the Lincoln/Susquehanna/Trail-Way tri-track “Shootout,” with Cory Haas, Glenndon Forsythe, and Kyle Moody finishing second through fourth in the three-track series.

Bradley Weber withstood heavy late-race pressure from Tyler Walton to win the 20-lap 600cc micro-sprint feature. Garrett Bard, Kameron Morral and Zane Rudisill completed the top five.

Weber started sixth and grabbed the lead from polesitter and race-long leader Jim Radney on lap six and led the rest of the way. Walton moved into second when Radney dropped from the field on lap eight, and pulled onto Weber’s back bumper when the caution flew for Darren Kauffman, who came to a stop with two laps to go.

The two were side-by-side as they raced under the white flag, but Weber was able to hold Walton off over the final lap for the two-carlength win.

Heat winners for the 18 micros were Walton and Jesse Snyder.

This Friday, September 1, Trail-Way returns with the 358 Sprint Cars in the conclusion of the Trail-Way/Lincoln Shootout. Also on the schedule will be the Mason Dixon 270 Micro Sprints, Street Stocks and Limited Stocks. This will be the final point race of the 2017 racing season for the Limited Stocks. Gates open at 5:30 p.m., with heats scheduled to begin at 7:45 p.m.

For all the latest news and related information from Trail-Way Speedway, fans are reminded to visit the speedway website at www.trail-wayspeedway.com. The complete story and agate from each race night is posted shortly after the final checkered flag.

The Port Royal Speedway Tuscarora 50

 

 

Saturday, Sept. 21, 1968: The original Mr. Excitement, Mitch Smith of Linglestown scored the inaugural running of the Tuscarora 50 in an outstanding performance aboard the Garys Auto Wreckers No. 5. The race required one restart on the 39th lap for Sam Yoder.  Johnny Grum, who finished second, started closing the gap Smith had built on the 30th lap and was on Smiths bumper when the caution appeared.  Grum had the lead coming up the frontstetch on the restart but Smith got through the first turn and held the lead the rest of the way.  Yoder had led from the drop of the green until John Ebersole took over on lap four. Then Junior Ritchey took over on lap six and held sway until Smith powered to the head of the field.  Heats went to Lynn Paxton, Jim Kennedy and Smith with Ritchey taking the consolation.

Saturday, Oct. 3, 1969: Delayed by rain from Sept. 27, Mitch Smith roared to his second consecutive Tuscarora title in the second running of the race.  Smith took $1,000 for the win with Elmer Ruby taking home $800 for second and Steve Ungar scoring $600 for third.   Jim Kennedy had the lead at the end of the first lap and would hold it for ten until his car went sour and Smith took over. Kennedy had set a new one-lap track record of 22.05 seconds before dropping out.  Smith then broke the record three more times before the checkers to record a 21.57, breaking the 22-second mark for the first time in oval history.  Heats went to Dan Miller, Kennedy and Ruby with Tommie Spriggle taking the consolation in a new 10-lap record time of 3:45.15.


Friday, Sept. 11, 1970: Mitch Smith went three-for-three in the Tuscarora 50 in 1970, yet again aboard the Garys Auto Wreckers No. 5 owned by Gary Wasson.  Smith took the 50 after also winning the Labor Day Classic a few days earlier. The $1,000 50 victory was Smiths 32nd career win at Port Royal where he also won the 1970 season lidlifter. It turned into a big weekend for The Linglestown Leadfoot, as Smith towed to Selinsgrove Speedway the next night and romped to a win in the Selinsgrove 70, worth $1,095. 

Saturday, Sept. 11, 1971: Smokey Snellbaker blew the engine in his regular sprint, the Roy Morral 880, climbed into the Al Hamilton 77, and drove like he owned it and won the fourth annual Tuscarora 50 to give Hamilton his first event victory of what would end up being five in his illustrious ownership career.  Snellbaker pocketed $1,000 for the win. It was a big night for car owner Hamilton as his other driver, Billy Cassella, finished second and it was the first time that Hamiltons cars ever finished one-two in a race. Track champion Elmer Ruby blew his engine while running second and Johnny Grum went out with front-end troubles.  Lynn Paxton was without a ride. Heats went to Paul Ober, Jim Kennedy and Snellbaker with Barry Camp taking the consolation. 


Friday, Sept. 8, 1972: Lynn Paxton of Mechanicsburg captured the 1972 Tuscarora 50 aboard the Emrich Chevrolet No. 1, pocketing $1,200 for the checkers.  Johnny Grum led throughout most of the event and at times had a full straightaway spread over Paxton but Grum seemed to have trouble getting through lapped cars and Paxton kept closing the gap. On the 37th tour Paxton took over for the win. Heats went to Bobby Allen, Rick Ferkle and Jan Opperman.  Smokey Snellbaker won the consolation and set a new eight-lap track record of three minutes flat.  Officials estimated event attendance at 15,000.

Friday, Sept. 7, 1973: Midwest transplant Kenny Weld scored his second career Port Royal victory in the 1973 Tuscarora, giving No. 29 car owner Bob Weikert his first of what would end up being five total checkers in the event.  Weld won the 50 just a few days after claiming the annual Labor Day Classic, which was his first career win at Port Royal in his 17th recorded oval start.  Reports had Weld winning the 50 after another exciting battle with an all-star field.  The caution was out only once during the 50-lap event, on the 18th loop.  Jimmy Boyd and Weld took heats with Jim Edwards winning the consolation.  Weld set a new one-lap track record in his heat with a time of 20.82 seconds. 

 
Saturday, Sept. 7, 1974: Again in the Emrich No. 1, Lynn Paxton won the seventh running of the Tuscarora for his second oval win of the year in the season-ending event after also winning the season opener. The exciting 50-lap event saw Van May take the lead at the start and hold it for the first seven laps when Bobby Weaver flipped in the first turn.  On the restart Rick Schmelyun grabbed the lead and held it until the 19th lap when track champion Smokey Snellbaker took over. Snellbaker led until the 37th lap when his rear end went out.  Meanwhile, Paxton, who had went to the rear after pitting under caution on lap 14, had worked his way back up to second and took over the lead. Heats went to Paul Pitzer, Paxton and Jimmy Boyd with Dub May winning the consolation.

 

Friday, Sept. 12, 1975: Aboard the O.J. Myers No. 19, Steve Smith Sr. of New Oxford made his first-ever win at Port Royal Speedway a big one by scoring the 1975 Tuscarora 50 worth $1,200.  Buck Buckly led the first 15 laps from the pole before pulling pitside, handing the lead over to three-time 50 winner Mitch Smith.  Smith led for the next 10 circuits until a sour motor sidelined him, giving Lincoln Speedway powerhouse Steve Smith control all the way to the finish.  Although never credited with leading a lap, Smokey Snellbaker actually got the lead twice in the race.  Snellbaker first took the lead when he blew under Buckly for the lead on the 14th lap only to blow a tire and tag to the rear for a restart.  Snellbaker then motored back to the front and moved into the lead around Smith with 23 laps to go but couldnt hold the line.  After a side-by-side race with Smith for several laps, Snellbaker pitted with 11 to go with a broken radius rod.  Heats went to Keith Kauffman and Jim Sheaffer with Jimmy Nace winning the consolation.  The original race date of Sept. 5 was rained out.  


Friday, Sept. 10, 1976: McAlisterville driver Jim Nace scored the bicentennial Tuscarora 50 edition aboard his No. 44.  Nace watched as Lynn Paxton and Jay Myers, the two top ranked Port Royal drivers during the season, both got knocked out, and then he took the lead with 19 laps left. Paxton the point champion was knocked out before the first lap was completed as a spectacular crack-up in the first turn took out four cars including Paxton, Gary Howsare, Chris Crisswell and Dave Reigle.  Then Myers became the new favorite from the ninth starting spot and when green reappeared he shot into third where he stayed until lap 25 when he made his move and began pulling away from Barry Camp, the leader of the first 24 laps. Myers had a commanding lead by lap 27 but soon withdrew under caution on lap 28 with a broken rear end. Camp inherited the lead back and built a sizeable margin but Nace, now up to second, found the door open on lap 32 and squeezed past Camp coming off the second turn to pull away.  Only six cars completed the entire 50 laps of the race and only eight were running at the finish.  The win was Naces first ever in his own car.  

Saturday, Sept. 17, 1977: Again delayed a week by rain, Tuscarora 50 laurels went to Everetts Gary Howsare in 1977.  Howsare was at the wheel of the Boops Aluminum Special No. 1 machine during what car owner Maynard Boop dubbed the Boops Rent-A-Racer season due to having no long-term, fixed driver for the year.  Howsare claimed the 50-lap special by out-dueling Steve Smith in the late stages.  The early leader, Howsare surrendered the number one spot to Mitch Smith on the 17th lap but regained it eight laps later and then stayed in front the rest of the way.  Heats for 43 cars went to Jay Myers, Howsare and Mitch Smith with Jim Sheaffer taking the consolation. 

Friday, Sept. 8, 1978: The driver who would become the all-time track favorite and winningest driver, Keith Kauffman of Mifflintown won the 78 Tuscarora in what was an odyssey voyage for his first event victory. Battling his way from the rear of the pack, Kauffman caught Steve Smith in the final turn on the final lap to claim the checkers.  During warm-ups, Kauffman found his machine spewing oil so he returned the car to his shop and changed engines only to return to the track with heats finished and just the consolation race remaining before the 50.  An initial consolation red flag gave Kauffman enough time to get into the pits and unload and tag the consy field in which he raced up to second for a spot in the 50.  Bill Stevick led the first lap of the main before Smokey Snellbaker took over before blowing his engine on lap 22.  That pushed Steve Smith into the lead but with five laps to go Smith began struggling with lapped cars and Kauffman rode his tail before using the high line to steal the win in the final turn.  A field of 35 cars competed.

 

Friday, Sept. 7, 1979: Veteran Smokey Snellbaker took his second career 50 in 1979 from the eighth starting spot aboard the Lloyd No. 56.  Tom Bryner led the first two laps of the race from the pole before a restart saw Keith Kauffman take over.  Snellbaker chased Kauffman from the third lap until the 14th lap when he slid into the lead as the cars came around for lap 15.  Lynn Paxton began to challenge for the win on the second restart of the race on the 18th lap through lap 31 when he suddenly pitted.  The race went non-stop from lap 33 to the finish.  The race marked the end of a quarter-century run by Leroy Felty who for the first time in 26 years went through an entire season without competing in any feature at Port Royal Speedway. 

Friday, Sept. 5, 1980: A crowd estimated at over 10,000 people saw Lynn Paxton of York Springs win the 13th annual 50, his career third and final in the event, coming aboard the Boops No. 1. Paxton took command of the race after early leader Randy Wolfe blew a tire while leading.  Paxtons winning margin was about 20 lengths over Keith Kauffman. Kauffman blew a tire mid-race and had to come back from the rear.

Friday, Sept. 11, 1981: George Ferguson Jr. of Fort Washington scored his first ever sprint car win by becoming the ninth different winner of the Tuscarora 50, beating a field of 37 sprint cars.  Aboard the Ferguson No. 52, Ferguson saw early leaders fall out of the event.  Steve Siegel, the early leader, brought out the caution flag on lap eight with a broken driveline.  Smokey Snellbaker then inherited the lead for laps nine through 36 with Ferguson and Billy Stief close behind.  On lap 36 Snellbaker got a flat tire, causing another yellow flag and handing the lead to Ferguson.  On the restart Stief passed Ferguson for the win and led laps 37 to 42 before retiring with engine woes. A final yellow with two laps to go found Ferguson unheeded for the victory. 

 

Friday, Sept. 10, 1982: One of the original outlaws, Hanovers Bobby Allen dropped off of the outlaws trail, invaded and walked off with the 1982 Tuscarora crown to pick up his 18th overall win of the season while it was the first of his career at Port Royal.  Allen passed 1982 track champion Randy Wolfe on the 42nd lap to get the win.  Van May led the first 16 laps while Wolfe headed the pack from laps 17 to 41. Allen started 19th and motored into second at the halfway point.  Allen then dropped back to third before retaking second with 14 laps to go before moving in on Wolfe for the victory.  Allen was credited with a new 25-lap track record after running the final 25 non-stop in a time of 8:22.56. Heats went to May and Wolfe.

Friday, Sept. 9, 1983: Dave Blaney of Hartford, Ohio, made his third Port Royal appearance of the 1983 season a profitable one by claiming the Tuscarora 50.  Blaney inherited the lead from Bobby Davis on the 36th lap when Davis car caught fire while under caution. At the lap 25 mandatory break in the action, 15th starter Blaney had Davis leading with Bobby Allen in second and Keith Kauffman in third.  Kauffman dropped out with engine woes on lap 32 and Allen went to the rear after replacing a flat tire on lap 35.  Heats went to Davis, Kauffman and Lynn Paxton.  The start of the racing program was delayed to allow a large crowd time to enter the speedway. 


Friday, Sept. 7, 1984: South Dakotas Doug Wolfgang won his first Tuscarora 50 of what would be four in a row in 1984 at the wheel of the Weikerts Livestock No. 29 machine.  Wolfgang inherited the lead and $4,000 win from Van May on the 31st lap when May pitted with a flat tire.  Jim Nace took home $3,000 for second place. The race was red flagged on the initial start for a Keith Kauffman frontstretch accident.  Kauffman climbed Paul Lotiers wheel sending his Hamilton machine out of control and into the wall.  The last place car came onto the scene seconds later and broadsided Kauffman who was waving his arms trying to get the car to stop before the collision.  The impact sent Kauffmans car some 60 feet sideways.  Then Billy Howard flipped in the first turn after hitting Randy Wolfe while trying to avoid Kauffman. Heats went to Lotier, Maynard Yingst and Dave Wickham.


Friday, Sept. 6, 1985: In the midst of an unprecedented season at the wheel of the Weikert No. 29, Doug Wolfgang won his second 50 in a row in 1985, taking over $4,000 for the win that was his 44th overall on the season.  Wolfgang passed Jim Nace off of the second turn to take the lead and win on the 15th lap. The race was marred by a terrible accident on the 26th lap that injured drivers Van May, Kenny Smith and flagman Bob Hockenberry.  When Smith lost power on the frontstretch, may climbed his rear wheel and nearly flipped onto the stage before vaulting into the starters stand, destroying it and knocking Hockenberry to the ground while continuing to flip toward the first turn. After being cut from the car, May was airlifted to a hospital. In trying to avoid Mays flipping sprinter, the cars of Keith Kauffman and Smokey Snellbaker were destroyed as they flipped into turn one with the fuel cell of Smith being impacted and bursting into flames. Also enveloped in the fire were Joey Gravino and Jerry Stone.  Heats went to Randy Wolfe, Kauffman and May with Snellbaker claiming the consolation.

Friday, Sept. 5, 1986: Doug Wolfgang took the lead from Cris Eash on the ninth lap going down the backchute and then held off Dave Kelly mid-race to easily claim his third 50 in a row for Bob Weikert, worth $7,785. Jerry Stone overtook Maynard Yingst for third on the final lap.  Heats were won by Keith Kauffman, Wolfgang and Darren Eash with Gary Gollub taking the consolation. 

Friday, Sept. 25, 1987: Doug Wolfgang surged from the eighth restarting spot at the mandatory lap 25 restart to get his record-setting fourth Tuscarora 50 in a row in 1986 while also scoring an unprecedented fifth event win for car owner Bob Weikert. During the lap 25 stoppage for refueling, Wolfgang changed gears, tires and torsion bars on his car, allowing it to hook up to the smooth track. Todd Shaffer led the first six laps before Bobby Weaver drove by in lapped traffic.  Shaffer retook command from Weaver with a daring inside move in traffic on the 23rd circuit.  Wolfgang got by Paul Lotier for fourth on lap 35 and Dave Kelly for third a lap later.  With 37 laps down, leader Shaffer spun to bring out the yellow flag and Joey Allen moved from fifth to third on the restart and then closed in on Wolfgang and new leader Weaver. With 10 laps to go, Allen drove by Wolfgang and then took the lead from Weaver with eight laps to go.  A lap later, Weaver broke a spindle, forcing a caution and Wolfgang used the restart to get around Allen before Allen lost his motor while racing close for the win on the 45th tour.  Wolfgang pocketed over $6,000 for his night of work that included another victory on the night, in the Miller Winners Classic.

 

Friday, Sept. 9, 1988: Some 13 years after his father took a Tuscarora 50 win, Stevie Smith of New Oxford scored in 1988 to etch the first and only father/son winners in 50 record books. Aboard the Creasy Signs No. 19, Smith was billed as an easy winner in a race that took place before the largest crowd in speedway history.  Smith took the lead on the fourth lap from Fred Rahmer and pocketed $12,000 in cash for the triumph.  After getting the lead, Smith ran away with it, lapping up to eighth place by the finish.  His pace was halted for a flip by Ricky Hood aboard the Weikert sprinter when Hood flipped over the first turn fence after climbing the wheel of Bobby Landis.  Track big guns Keith Kauffman and Paul Lotier failed to qualify for the event.  Heats for 48 cars went to Frankie Kerr, Dave Kelly, Allen Ruth and Landis with consolations going to Roger Fickett and Lance Dewease.  Smith also won the Miller Beer Dash later in the night from 14th starting spot for another $2,000 and then scored at Lincoln Speedway a night later to pocket another 10K. 


Friday, Sept. 8, 1989: Bobby Allen won the second 50 of his career in the 22nd running of the event, inheriting the lead and win on the final lap when Doug Wolfgang coasted to a stop with a blown motor.  Tim Dietz led laps one through 19 before being passed by 1989 track champion Dave Kelly. Dietz and Kelly raced side by side for 10 laps before Kelly finally got the lead.  Kelly held sway until lap 31 when Wolfgang used the high groove to pass him on a restart caused by Dietzs stopped machine.  Once in front, Wolfgang built a big lead with Allen passing Kelly for second with nine laps to go but failing to close on the leader.  Heats went to Bobby Landis, Bobby Weaver, Dietz and Kelly with Lance Dewease winning the consolation.


Friday, Sept. 7, 1990: An emerging Todd Shaffer of Millerstown struck for his first Tuscarora win in 1989 in an event delayed four hours by rain. The victory was the biggest in Shaffers young career to date. The pilot started fourth in the main and passed Tim Dietz going into the first turn on the ninth lap for the lead.  Shaffer pulled away from the field until a lap 15 flip by Bobby Strawser caused a red flag.  Shaffer opened up a half-lap lead after the restart, before the mandatory lap 25 stoppage.  The second half of the race saw very little passing although second runner Dave Kelly was able to close on Shaffer between laps 40 and 45 in traffic before a caution for a stopped Lance Dewease cleared the way.  Heats went to Shaffer, Kelly, Dan Dietrich and Strawser with Paul Lotier and Judd Shepard claiming the consolations.  


Friday, Sept. 6, 1991: Again aboard his familiar Turnbaugh No. 11, Todd Shaffer made it back to back 50 wins in 1991 with the victory being his 21st overall of the season.  Shaffer started sixth and moved into third at the halfway point of the first segment before taking the lead with 18 laps to go.  His margin of victory was 15 car lengths and was worth over $8,200, capping off a week in which the car earned over $20,000.  Barry Camp was a flip victim in the feature with three laps to go. 


Friday, Sept. 11, 1992: Len Krautheim III., of Penns Creek, scored one for the Selinsgrove Speedway fans in the Silver Anniversary Tuscarora as the Selinsgrove oval 92 track champion invaded Port Royal and walked away with the $7,500 loot from the pole, leading all 50 laps.   Numerous caution and red flag periods hampered the race including for flips by Bobby Weaver, Bobby Strawser and Billy Crawford and for a nine-car pileup with 16 laps to go. Aboard the Steve Kemble, KNK Motorsports No. 3K, Krautheim outran another Selinsgrove regular, Chuck Reinert, for the win although Reinert was quickly tracking him down on the high side at the finish before running out of laps.  Interestingly, Krautheims mechanic Rob Peters discovered under a red flag period that his car had lost its right front torsion bar and arm and under another red flag, Peters discovered that the motor had lost its lower radiator hose.  Both times, Peters was able to mend the issues, allowing Krautheim to preserve the win.  Heats went to Lance Dewease, Keith Kauffman, Bobby Strawser and Krautheim with consolations going to Glen Fitzcharles and Troy Camp.

 

Friday, Sept. 10, 1993: Alan Cole led the first five laps of the 1993 50 before track champion Lance Dewease took the lead in the Dyer No. 461.  Dewease checked out on the field during the mid-stages but following a lap 33 restart, No. 69K Don Kreitz Jr. raced with Fred Rahmer for second before securing the spot with nine laps to go.  Kreitz then quickly closed in on Dewease and took the lead with a fourth turn pass on lap 43 before pulling away to his first-ever Tuscarora 50 checkers.  Heats for 43 cars went to Todd Shaffer, Keith Kauffman, Dewease and Dan Dietrich with twin consolations going to Bill Brian Jr. and Jim Nace.

 

Friday, Sept. 9, 1994: A year after nearly getting his first-ever win in the 50, Lance Dewease put it all together for that elusive first 50 triumph in 1994 aboard the Walt Dyer No. 461.  The Waynesboro driver took the lead on the 14th circuit from Todd Gracey and then held off Fred Rahmer in the middle of the race and Billy Pauch near the end.  Heats for 35 cars went to Dan Dietrich, Craig Eshenaur and Dewease with Todd Shaffer taking the consolation race. 

                               

Friday, Sept. 8, 1995: Millerstowns Todd Shaffer led all 50 laps in a romp to record his third event victory in the 1995 installment of the 50, aboard the Beam No. 88 sprinter.  Shaffer had three lapped cars separating himself from Fred Rahmer on a restart with five laps to go, taking the edge off of any potential final lap moves for a late upset.  Heats for 39 cars went to Mark Richard, Len Krautheim III., Shaffer and Craig Eshenaur.  Twin consolations went to Alan Cole and Tim Kuhn. 

 

Friday, Sept. 20, 1996: After leading the first 25 laps and appearing headed to his second Tuscarora win, Lance Dewease came up lame with a flat rear tire and surrendered the lead at the halfway break to Salfordvilles Fred Rahmer aboard the Hamilton No. 77.  Todd Shaffer came to second during the last 15 laps but failed to steal the win as Rahmer went on to seal up his first-ever 50 triumph with three more to come in his career.  Heats for 41 cars went to Shaffer, Mike Wagner, Alan Cole and Kevin Gobrecht with consolations going to Jeff Thompson and Will Cramer.  

 

Friday, Sept. 5, 1997: No. 69K Don Kreitz Jr. led the race early from the second starting spot as invader Dale Blaney in the Hughes Wheel & Axle No. 94 raced in second and got around Kreitz during the second half only to see Kreitz reclaim the point.  Aboard the Hamilton Motorsports No. 77, Salfordvilles Fred Rahmer, who started 12th in the field, got around Kreitz for the lead during the last six circuits for his second victory in a row in the prestigious event.  Heats for 38 cars went to Todd Shaffer, Lance Dewease, Kreitz and Cris Eash with twin consolations going to Dave Ely and Jeff Rohrbaugh.

 

Saturday, Sept. 12, 1998: Carrying a sanction for the first time in its 31-year history and expanded to a two-day show for the first time ever as well, the 1998 Tuscarora 50 would belong to Memphis, Tennessee, pilot Greg Hodnett aboard the Apple Chevrolet, Bob Stewart-owned No. 12.  Making his first starts ever as a Pennsylvania regular in the races sanctioned by the All Star Circuit of Champions Sprints, Hodnett took the lead from Fred Rahmer on lap 13 of 30 on Friday night, taking the $4,000 victory by a half lap.  In Saturday nights 50, Lance Dewease led the first 41 circuits with Kenny Jacobs and Hodnett lurking before Hodnett took over and Dewease blew a tire shortly after. The $10,000 event win was the first of Hodnetts career.   Some 42 cars were in action for the 50 with Jeff Shepard setting quick time with a lap of 16.554 seconds.  Heats went to Cris Eash, Johnny Mackison Jr., Dean Jacobs and Hodnett with James Chesson taking the B Main. 

 

Saturday, Sept. 11, 1999: Aboard his No. 69K, Don Kreitz Jr. of Sinking Spring started second in the race and destroyed a stellar field of sprints, taking his second career Tuscarora 50, worth more than $10,000.  A total of 42 cars were in action in a race sanctioned by the All Star Circuit of Champions Sprints with Joey Saldana setting fast time in qualifications with a lap of 16.353 seconds.  Heat races went to Shawn Keen, Johnny Mackison Jr., Greg Hodnett and Jeff Shepard with Paul McMahan taking the B Main.  A second sprint car main staged following the 50 highlighted the night as the make-up Labor Day Classic was spun off after rain postponed it earlier in the week.  Jeff Shepard took that victory with Kreitz finishing second.  The Friday night 50 preliminary was scored by No. 77E Dave Ely in what was his first-ever win in a sprint car anywhere with 43 cars in action. 

 

Saturday, Sept. 9, 2000: Fred Rahmer took his third victory in the Tuscarora 50 in 2000, taking home $10,000 for the win while leading 39 laps of the contest that was back to being an unsanctioned event.  Amid lapped traffic, Lance Dewease scooted by Rahmer for the lead on the seventh tour but found Rahmer wrestling to regain command, which he took on the 18th lap.  A volley of flat tires with 20 laps to go sidelined the likes of second runner Dewease and third runner Jeff Shepard along with Mark Richard and Keith Kauffman, placing Todd Shaffer in second and although Shaffer gave it a run during the final stages, Rahmer streaked under the checkers for the win.  Heats for the 32-car field went to Cris Eash, Mark Richard, Brian Gobrecht and Kauffman with Tim Kuhn scoring the consolation race.  Lance Dewease won the Friday preliminary race in what would be his first of two in a row.  The win was also the first of four career in the precursor for car owner Joe Harz. 

 

Saturday, Sept. 8, 2001: Lance Dewease took home over $12,000 for his second 50 win in 2001, aboard the Joe Harz No. 88H and pulled off the same feat as Greg Hodnett did in 1998 by sweeping both Tuscarora races, on Friday and Saturday night.  In the Saturday 50, Dewease led early from the pole before Todd Shaffer used a lap 16 restart to motor by for control but Dewease then came back and drove by Shaffer on the backstretch with 11 laps to go after getting a great run off of the top-side of the second turn.  Heats for the 34-car field were taken by Keith Kauffman, Greg Hodnett, Don Kreitz Jr. and Fred Rahmer with Alan Cole scoring the consolation race.  Dewease took the lead late from a faltering Todd Hestor to pick up the Friday win.

 

Saturday, Sept. 7, 2002: Six-time track champion Lance Dewease of Fayetteville took his third career win in Port Royals most illustrious race in 2002, and for as many different car owners to boot.  Aboard the Hamilton No. 77, Dewease bided his time early and then began moving forward near the halfway point.  Meanwhile, early leader Sean Michael and challenger Fred Rahmer staged a spirited duel for control during the first 25 laps with Rahmer at the halfway helm and Dewease restarting second. Dewease squeezed between the inside rail and Rahmer to take the lead with 22 laps to go.  The win for car owner Al Hamilton gave him a total of five in the event, tying him with Bob Weikert at the top of the all-time event win list for car owners.  Heats for 32 cars went to Mark Smith, Michael, Todd Hestor and Rahmer with Kevin Frey taking the consolation. Don Kreitz Jr. led the first several laps of the Friday preliminary night before Greg Hodnett took over for the win.  

 

Saturday, Sept. 6, 2003: With the race well in hand and threatening to sweep the weekend for the second time in six years, leader Greg Hodnett came up with a souring motor with 13 laps to go in the 50 and nursed his car and engine all the way to lap 48 when it finally quit spewing white smoke and he handed the lead over to 53-year old veteran Keith Kauffman aboard the Middleswarth No. 7.  Kauffman then took the win, his second in the event and first in the race since 1978, pocketing $10,000 after moving into the second spot with nine laps completed.  Heats for a 40-car field went to Mike Walter, Fred Rahmer, Stevie Smith and Lynton Jeffrey with Don Kreitz Jr. taking the last chance race.  Hodnett took the lead from Todd Shaffer to win on Friday night.

 

Saturday, Sept. 11, 2004: Now a Central Pa regular for several years since his first 50 win in 1998, Greg Hodnett returned for a second event victory in 2004 aboard the Bob Stewart, Apple Motorsports No. 12.  Hodnett started 12th in the field and drove by Don Kreitz Jr. for second on a lap 12 restart before dusting off early leader Todd Shaffer on lap 14 to take control.  Mark Smith came to second with 33 laps to go but failed to challenge for the win.  Heats for 33 cars went to Hodnett, Rick Lafferty, Kreitz and Darren Eash.  Craig Keel won the consolation race.  Fred Rahmer took his first of two consecutive wins in the preliminary race on Friday night.   

 

Saturday, Sept. 10, 2005: Fred Rahmer became the third driver to complete a sweep of the Tuscarora weekend races when he pulled off the feat in 2005.  On Friday the Salfordville speedster started 11th and was up to fourth by lap five before taking control from Chad Layton.  In Saturdays 50 itself, Rahmer started on the pole in the seat of the Harz No. 88H and led all 50 laps for the $10,000 victory, cruising through traffic during the final non-stop 25 laps to record his fourth win in the prestigious event and his last while joining Doug Wolfgang in history as just the second driver ever to win four Tuscaroras.  Heats for the 36-car field went to Craig Keel, Lucas Wolfe, Justin Collett and TJ Stutts with twin consolations going to Mike Wagner and Lance Dewease.

 

Saturday, Sept. 9, 2006: Seven-time 2006 oval winner Mark Smith led by a straightaway early in the 50 over Fred Rahmer but third starter Lance Dewease was lurking aboard the Postupack No. 25.  He moved into second, getting around Fred Rahmer on lap 14 and then mixed it up with Smith and challenger Doug Esh from laps 35  41 as the trio exchanged the front spots at will with Dewease first being scored the leader on lap 40.  Esh took second with five to go and challenged for the win but Dewease ended up winning his fourth career Tuscarora 50 for his fourth different car owner, worth $10,000.  Heats for the 35-car field went to Todd Shaffer, Dewease, Mark Coldren and Alan Cole with Kenny Jacobs scoring the consolation.  Keith Kauffman led every lap to win Fridays feature event. 

 

Saturday, Sept. 8, 2007: Lincoln Speedway invader Doug Esh would pick up his first of two career Tuscarora triumphs in 2007 aboard the Leach No. 30.  Esh of Lancaster started third in the field and followed early leader Sean Michael before pulling the trigger on the seventh lap.  Aboard the Brian Golden No. 12, Kevin Nouse followed Esh and took second spot a lap later but gave way to Keith Kauffman for the spot during the final three laps.  Esh took $11,000 for the victory, which was also his first career checkers at the oval. Todd Shaffer took his first of two in a row in the event in the Friday night preliminary.

 

Sunday, Sept. 7, 2008: After a Saturday rain out, the Sunday make-up date found Elizabethvilles Mike Erdley scoring the big victory in the 50, worth over $10,700.  Aboard the Lisi No. 11, Erdley trailed polesitter Brian Leppo for the first 20 laps before biting fast to the bottom groove off of the second turn to drive by for the lead.  After taking the lead, Erdley had to hold off a charging Greg Hodnett who was going for his third career 50 win.  Heats for 34 cars went to Blane Heimbach, Dave Hahn, Cliff Brian and Brian Montieth with Chad Layton taking the consolation race.  Erdley had a pair of good runs on the weekend, finishing second on Friday to preliminary winner Todd Shaffer. 

 

Saturday, Sept. 12, 2009: Aboard the Kline No. 22, Greg Hodnett won his third career Tuscarora 50 in a flag to flag performance from the pole of the event.  The Thomasville speedster took home $12,750 for the win.  Third starter Daryn Pittman came to second early and trailed Hodnett as he entered traffic on the ninth loop.  Pittman and Stevie Smith battled for second as the race waned, swapping the spot a few times before Smith took it for good with six laps to go.  Heats for 42 cars went to Keith Kauffman, Pittman, Hodnett and Todd Shaffer.  Twin consolations went to Kerry Madsen and Dave Ely.  The Friday night preliminary race was rained out. 

 

Saturday, Sept. 11, 2010: Lincoln Speedway track champion Brian Montieth of Phoenixville won the 2010 version of the 50 after swapping the lead for several laps mid-race with 21st starter Fred Rahmer.  Aboard the Parrish No. 21, Montieth started on the pole and led until lap 26 when Rahmer took over but Montieth then used the top lane to track down Rahmer in a rousing run to go back out front on lap 32 for his first ever Port Royal win.  A close three-car race for second that wasnt far behind the leader was destroyed on the 11th lap when the second, third and fourth place cars of Lance Dewease, Stevie Smith and Greg Hodnett crashed out.  Heats went to Rick Lafferty, Danny Dietrich, Mike Erdley and Greg Hodnett with Rahmer taking the consolation race.  Stevie Smith drove the Zemco No. 1 to his first of three career wins in the preliminary race on Friday night.

 

Saturday, Sept. 10, 2011: Stevie Smith of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, scored his second career Tuscarora 50 in the 44th annual running of the event with a flag to flag run aboard the Zemco No. 1 in 2011.  Smith scored a clean sweep of the night by winning his heat race, worth $300, the dash, worth $100 and the feature worth, $11,000 and adding lap money on top of that, Smith had earned nearly $13,000 by the end of the night.  Justin Henderson chased Smith for the first 46 laps before a surging Danny Dietrich blasted into second before running down Smith only to run out of laps in an effort to get the victory.  Heats for a 45-car field went to Smith, Todd Shaffer, TJ Winegardner, Mike Wagner and Doug Esh.  Brent Marks took the B Main.  The Friday preliminary was rained out thanks to a relentless monsoon-like thunderstorm during the event. 

 

Saturday, Sept. 8, 2012: With the All Stars again sanctioning the big event, Lancasters Doug Esh struck for second blood in the 2012 50, staging a come-from-behind victory aboard the Leach No. 30 to pocket $11,450 for the win.  Trying to claim his first ever 50, Mike Wagner stretched out a big lead early while Brent Marks raced into second.  In traffic, Marks tracked down Wagner and took the lead with 18 completed.  Meanwhile, a fierce battle between the surging cars of Danny Dietrich and Lance Dewease ended in disaster when contact sent them into the outside first turn wall on the 24th lap while vying for sixth.  On the restart, Esh began blasting forward, making a two car pass using the ragged outside edge with 22 to go and he used that edge to take third a lap later.  Esh finally ran down Mike Erdley for second with 18 laps left and then on lap 35 he went out front for the win.  Heats for the 40-car field went to Keith Kauffman, Cap Henry, Erdley and Dewease with Blane Heimbach scoring the B Main.  Quick time was set by Daryn Pittman with a lap of 17.343.  In the Friday, Night Before The 50 race, Ohios Dale Blaney became the first bona-fide card-carrying All Star to ever win an All Stars event at the track since the series first visited the oval in 1981.   

 

Saturday, Sept. 7, 2013: A field of 40 All Stars and Pennsylvania sprint cars contested the 46th annual Tuscarora 50 with Sinking Springs Don Kreitz Jr. taking his third career victory in the event, worth $13,200, after having not laid eyes on the track in four years.  Kreitz never even intended to enter the event until he was at the track for the Friday night precursor to help teammate Ryan Smith and found the surface to his liking.  And both Smith and Kreitz started on the front row for the 50 with Kreitz taking control and entering traffic on the sixth lap.  Meanwhile, 24th starter Brian Montieth was blasting to the front, using the outside rail as a stabilizer, moving into fourth on just the 18th circuit.  Just before the lap 25 stoppage, Monteith got by Tim Shaffer to score third and on the restart both he and 15th starter Danny Dietrich set sail after Kreitz from third and sixth respectively.  The pair whizzed into second and third with 18 to go and Montieth would overtake Kreitz for control with 13 laps to go.  That move forced Kreitz to move up a lane in an effort to come back and the lane choice worked as he was able to split a lapped car to his inside and Montieth to his outside to regain the lead in wild fashion with just 10 laps remaining.  Heats went to Adam Wilt, Stevie Smith, Lance Dewease and Mike Wagner with the consolation going to Brian Leppo.  Tim Shaffer set quick time with a lap of 16.827.  Greg Hodnett led all 30 laps to win the Friday night All Stars race.  

 

Saturday, Sept. 6, 2014: Greg Hodnett of Thomasville made a bold first lap, thread-the-needle move to take the lead in the 47th annual event to trump the field for the fourth 50 checkers of his career worth over $13,000 in the 2014 All Stars event.  Fourth starter Hodnett got by front row starters Lynton Jeffrey and Danny Holtgraver on the first lap for the lead.  Hodnett restarted after the lap 25 break with two lapped cars between himself and Stevie Smith in second and Dale Blaney in third.  The final half of the event proved anti-climactic and Hodnett earned the checkers, giving a first-ever triumph in the race to No. 27 car owner Mike Heffner.   The fourth career 50 win for Hodnett moved him into a four-way tie to be the winningest 50 driver in history with Lance Dewease, Fred Rahmer and Doug Wolfgang.  Heats for a 41-car field went to Hodnett, Rick Lafferty, Jeffrey and Lance Dewease with Rodney Westhafer taking the B Main.  Dale Blaney set quick time with a lap of 16.776 seconds.  Stevie Smith won Friday nights All Stars Night Before The 50 aboard Fred Rahmers No. 51 machine, overtaking Doug Esh on the 11th lap of the non-stop 30 lap main.

 

 

Sunday, Sept. 13, 2015: Capping off an amazing week of competition at Port Royal, No. 19M Brent Marks of Myerstown won the 48th annual Tuscarora to record his third oval win in the four races held at the track during the 2015 Juniata County Fair.  After winning the Friday night preliminary event, he also became the fourth driver in history to sweep the Tuscarora weekend, joining Greg Hodnett, Lance Dewease and Fred Rahmer in the feat.  The 50 itself was delayed a day due to Saturday rain but it was worth the wait with the first 25 laps proving electrifying with multiple lead changes.  Ryan Taylor led lap one before Doug Esh took over.  Esh nearly lost the lead on the seventh lap when he had to spin his car to avoid hitting a crashed Dylan Cisney however he kept going and retained it.  But the restart saw Danny Dietrich power by for control however Esh was up to the challenge and tried to reclaim the helm and the two ended up colliding, taking themselves out of the race.  This handed the lead to Mike Wagner under caution however Wagner never got to be scored the leader as the restart saw Ohio youngster Sheldon Haudenschild make a two-car pass and blast from third to the lead on lap nine.  Marks moved into second with 12 away and restarted there after the lap 25 stoppage.  Haudenschild erred on the restart, entering the first turn in the middle, allowing Marks to blast the top and take control.  And once at the front, Marks turned on the afterburners to drive off from the field for the rest of the nonstop distance, pocketing $12,625 for the laurels.  Sanctioned again by the All Stars, heats in the 41-car event went to Esh, Rodney Westhafer, Wagner and Lance Dewease.  Twin B Mains went to Greg Wilson and Todd Shaffer with Greg Hodnett setting quick time of 18.138. 

 

Saturday, Sept. 10, 2016: The 49th running of the Tuscarora 50 proved to be record breaking when six-time track champion Lance Dewease of Fayetteville became the first five-time event winner, putting himself at the top of the all-time event win list while also scoring his 100th career victory at the Port Royal Speedway while aboard Don Kreitz Jrs No. 69K.  Dewease started eighth in the All Stars field and took the lead on the 12th circuit when leader Greg Hodnett broke the rear end on his machine.  Hodnett too was vying to win his fifth 50.  Deweases 2016 50 win was also his fifth for as many car owners, with prior wins coming for Walt Dyer in the 461 in 1994, for Joe Harz in the 88H 2001, for Al Hamilton in the 77 in 2002 and for Pete Postupack in the 25 in 2006.  Dewease restarted sixth in the field with eight laps down and poured on the power to move into second with 11 down.  Stevie Smith raced into second before the lap 25 stoppage and at the new green, he kept pace with Dewease in the first and second turns while Dewease would regain the ground he lost in the fourth corner on every lap.  A final caution with 19 to go reset the field but Dewease would again get away to take the $12,975 win, in fact checking out over the final circuits to win by nearly eight seconds.  Heats for the 41-car field went to Blane Heimbach, Dale Blaney, Sheldon Haudenschild and TJ Stutts with Mike Wagner winning the B Main.  Danny Dietrich set fast time with a lap of 16.479.  Smith won his third Night Before The 50 event on Friday but only after Greg Hodnett and Dewease both took turns leading.

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY

 26 August 2017 By Michael Batz

CARBERRY, FRYE, HOFFMAN & BUSSEY TAKE WINS ON FOSS JEWELERS CHAMPIONSHIP NIGHT

SELINSGROVE, Pa. -- Foss Jewelers Championship Night at Selinsgrove Speedway Saturday produced some of the most exciting racing of the season, and the night was a roller coaster ride for several drivers in the hunt for track titles in the final points races of the season for the 360 sprint cars, super late models, pro stocks, and roadrunners.

Adam Carberry had a heartbreak moment a few weeks ago when a part broke while he was leading the 360 Sprint Car feature event. Carberry worked into lap traffic on lap eight while Michael Walter closed in on Carberry’s rear bumper in Saturday night’s 25-lap main event.

Carberry received an open race track when the yellow flag came out for Justin Whittall on lap nine. Carberry again broke away from the field while Walter and Cody Keller battled for the runner up spot.

Keller made a split-second decision to dive to the inside when Walter got stuck behind a lap car and grabbed the second spot. Keller began to close in on Carberry over the next few laps. Keller made up a lot of ground when Carberry got stuck behind a lap car with two to go.

Keller never got close enough to make the move as Carberry crossed the line for his first win at Selinsgrove Speedway and his first 360 Sprint Car win.

Carberry, Keller, Walter, Jason Shultz, and Eric Tomecek were the top five. Chad Layton, 2017 Mach 1 Chassis 360 sprint car points champion Davie Franek, Ryan Kissinger, Derek Locke, and Colby Womer rounded out the top ten.

Carberry and Kissinger were heat race winners for the 360 Sprinters.

Coleby Frye dominated the 25-lap Super Late Model feature event. Frye led from the front row while Jeff Rine charged from eighth to run second.

Rine closed in on Frye while he tried to make his way through lap traffic. Frye made the winning move in turns one and two when he made a three-wide pass in heavy traffic that Rine wasn’t able to make to remain in striking distance.

Once Frye cleared the traffic he was on track for the victory. At the finish, he crossed the line ahead of Rine, Dylan Yoder, Chad Hollenback, and Tony Adams.

Hayes Mattern finished sixth ahead of Dave Stamm, Kenny Trevitz, Kyle Rhoads, and Patrick Bryner.

Tony Adams was running fourth when the white flag was displayed. The spot was enough for him to win the championship. Hollenback passed Adams on the final corner to finish fourth and push Adams to fifth. With Mattern’s sixth-place finish he and Adams tied for the Jeff’s Auto Body & Recycling Center late model points championship.

AJ Hoffman and Brad Mitch gave the fans a thrilling end to the points paying season in the 15-lap A&A Auto Stores Pro Stock feature event. Hoffman led the feature race while Mitch pressured him. On one restart Hoffman got out of shape, but made a fantastic save.

On the next restart Mitch again began to challenge the leader. Hoffman, this time, would hang on to the top spot and start to pull away. Point leader Tommy Slanker moved into third and settled there over the final few laps allowing Mitch to continue his focus on the race leader.

Hoffman held on to grab his 48th career Selinsgrove Speedway win came over Mitch, Slanker, AJ Stroup, and Matt Hornberger.

Noah Jenson was sixth across the checkered flag ahead of Jake Buck, John Troxell, Wayne Shaffer, and Nick Gentile.

John Troxell, Kurt Wray, and Kyle Bachman won the heat races for the Pro Stocks.

The Collier Paving and Construction Roadrunner 20 led things off in the feature race line up on Saturday. Bob Bussey led much of the event while Keith Bissinger challenged him. Both drivers were previous winners of the big event. No one had ever won the race two times.

Bissinger put it all on the line on lap 14 when he dove to the inside of Bussey trying to take the victory. Bissinger slid up and tagged Bussey then spun to the inside of the track.

On the first lap point leader Will Bruson was involved in a wreck in turn one taking him out of the event. The fate of the championship sat in the hands of the now spun Bissinger who came into the night second in points.

Bussey’s race wasn’t over because Bissinger had to tag the back of the pack. Ryan Zook kept Bussey honest of the last six laps. Bussey held on to become the first two-time winner of the Roadrunner 20 that was worth $1,000. Zook was second followed by Brian Johnson, Michael Smith, and Tyler Amtower.

Bissinger finished sixth with Butch Shaffer, Tom Underwood, Dennis Conrad, and Brian Mabus in the top ten.

SUSQUEHANNA SPEEDWAY RACE RESULTS

SCOTT DELLINGER PULLS AWAY FOR THIRD SUSKY WIN Bllet First Time Winner while Hoffer and McClane Repeat Winners By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA…8/26/17

Scott Dellinger made it look relatively easy as he drove to his third win of the season in Saturday night’s 25-lap Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman feature at Susquehanna Speedway.

Aboard his Dellinger Auto Body, Reesers Soft Serve Ice Cream, AAI Recycling, G. A Smith Towing No. 30, the Lewisberry driver came from his eighth starting spot and held on during numerous cautions and a long red flag to take the win. Dellinger’s second win in the last month also put him on top of the track point lead as the series heads into the final stretch of the season.

Eight time champion Frankie Herr set the pace from his pole starting spot and would hold the lead until his bid for his first win ended when he slowed on the speedway with five laps complete.

Jay Fannasy and Dellinger both got around Nate Young on the restart as Fannasy led lap six before Dellinger made a bold move to take the top spot with seven laps in the books.

As Dellinger pulled away, last week’s winner Russ Mitten and five time track winner Kenny Edkin were working their way to the front.

The race was halted on a lap 14 restart as five cars crashed on the front stretch. The cars of Garrett Williamson and Tom Wyckoff both flipped while Gregg Foster walked to the ambulance after taking a hard hit.

Dellinger quickly pulled away on the restart as Mitten pulled a slider to steal second spot from Fannasy with 16 laps in and attempted to track down the leader. But it was all Dellinger over the final nine circuits as he cruised to a 3.026 margin of victory for his fifth career Susquehanna win.

Mitten held off Edkin for the runner-up finish with Doug Dodson coming from 13th to finish fourth to earn the Artwerks Hard Charger over Fannasy with Paul Miller crossing sixth ahead of Chris Meleason, Mike Enders, Rich Eichelberger and Davey Walsh.

Heats for the 26 Super Sportsman were won by Herr, Young and Miller.

The 25-lap Bernheisel Race Cars 358 Late Model main got off to a rough start as a five car pileup, which saw the car of JR Rodriguez land on its side quickly brought out a red flag.

After the cleanup, front row starter Chase Billet grabbed the lead and would never look back in capturing his first win of the season and becoming the ninth different winner this year.

Justin Weaver chased Billet the entire distance but was unable to make the pass and settled for second ahead of Randy Stoudt, point leader and 10th starter Randy Christine, Jr. and 12th starter Sam Rial.

Matt Murphy earned the Artwerks Hard Charger award coming from 14th to sixth ahead of Eric Hohol, Sean Merkel, Jake Moser and Tim Murphy.

Stoudt and Weaver were heat race winners for the 17 BRC 358 Late models.

Joey Hoffer led flag to flag to pick up his division leading third win of the season in the Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stock feature.

Despite six cautions, including one on the final lap, Hoffer prevailed over ninth starter Craig Morgan, Randy Zechman, Ryan Smith and Jim Palm with Matt Adams, Jimmy Combs, Brandon Wanner, Scott Thunberg and Carl Graves. Graves won the Artwerks/Ricky Bobby Hard Charger after lining up 20th.

Hoffer, Mike Buckley and Zechman won heats for the 28 Street Stocks.

Patrick McClane took the lead on the third lap of the 20-lap Superior Homes Extreme Stock feature and raced to his fourth win of the year and second straight checkered flag.

Early leader Donnie Broderick was second over Travis Horan, point leader Alex Updegraff and John Frye. Updgraff was the Artwerks Hard Charger after starting seventh.

Broderick was the lone heat race winner for the 11 Extreme Stocks.

Susquehanna Speedway kicks off the month of September with a Saturday September 2nd show on Tyson Fence Night as the Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman, Freedmont® Mortgage Lending PASS/IMCA 305 Sprints, Bernheisel Race Cars 358 Late Models (Precise Series), Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stocks and the PENNMAR Cars make up the racing card. Race time is 7PM.

Jonestown Jet Zearfoss Sets 25-lap Track Record, Takes Third Port Main In A Row

Andy Haus scores first late model win of season, Garman and Miller also win

8/26/17

Port Royal – In track record time, Brock Zearfoss of Jonestown completed a sweep of the month of August at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night by claiming his third 410 sprint car main in a row.

Zearfoss started eighth in the field to record the $3,200 payday and set himself up to launch into the most lucrative week of the season at the track as the Juniata County Fair Races loom.

In the 22-lap super late model main, defending track champion Andy Haus of Hamburg scored his first win of the season after early leader Austin Berry was sidelined.

Derrick Garman took the win in the 18-lap econo late model main and Jeff Miller scored the 305 sprint feature to close out the night.

Polesitter Jared Esh blasted into the lead at the start of what would be the non-stop, 25-lap 410 sprint car feature, chased by Daryl Stimeling and fifth starter Blane Heimbach.

Esh was blistering the track early in the Ehrenzeller No. 33 and was way ahead of Heimbach when the Selinsgrove pilot drove into second on the second tour.

It took until lap four for Zearfoss to blast into third and begin racing for the top spots.

With a 2.819 second lead, Esh of Lancaster entered the backmarkers on the eighth tour as he circled the outside of the speedway with Heimbach and Zearfoss in pursuit.

By lap 11, Heimbach had cut Esh’s lead down to 1.156 seconds as both he and Zearfoss battled for the second spot.

With 10 laps to go, Esh’s advantage had all but evaporated, now down to .48 seconds amid traffic and a lap later, Zearfoss pulled the trigger on Heimbach for second with a move in the third and fourth turns.

It took Zearfoss just two more laps to run down Esh and bolt into the lead before driving away and Heimbach then took the second spot with five laps to go.

Indeed the front trio was fleet in command of the field with three-quarters of a lap separating the third place car of Esh from the fourth place machine of Daryl Stimeling during the final circuits.

Zearfoss’ margin of victory over Heimbach was 1.069 seconds, followed by a career best third place finish for Esh.

Daryl Stimeling was fourth followed by Carl Bowser,

Sixth through 10th went to Lucas Wolfe, AJ Flick, TJ Stutts, Dylan Cisney and Trenton Sheaffer.

Heats went to Sheaffer and Zearfoss.

With the non-stop run, Zearfoss set a new 25-lap track record of 7:22.973, shaving some 10 seconds off of the old mark held by Brent Marks.

Second starter Austin Berry of Nook took the lead at the beginning of the super late model main with Chris Casner giving chase while Andy Haus started sixth in the field.

Devin Friese, who started fourth, motored into second with four laps away but Haus was close behind.

Haus made his move of the race on the 11th lap when he threaded the needle entering the third corner to get by Friese for the second spot.

Meanwhile, Berry was running the ragged cushion and after a clout of the outside second turn wall a few laps earlier, a second hit of the wall at the same spot cost him control on the 13th tour as he pulled pitside.

This handed control to Haus who drove away easily to the victory, taking the checkers by 4.344 seconds over Friese.

Third place went to Tim Wilson, followed by Gene Knaub and Mike Lupfer.

Sixth through 10th went to Matt Parks, Chris Casner, Jason Schmidt, Tim Smith Jr. and Scott Flickinger.

Heats went to Haus and Smith Jr.

Shaun Miller of Tower City led the first two laps of the econo late model main before fifth starter Derrick Garman took the lead that he would hold to the finish.

Miller eventually faded to finish fourth while Tim Fedder advanced to finish second after starting in the fifth spot.

Andrew Stotler was third with JR Toner rounding out the top five finishers.

Heats went to Harold Ranck Jr. and Fedder.

Jeff Miller took the lead from Scott Ellerman on the sixth lap of the 18 lap 305 sprint main but Ellerman refused to give up, challenging Miller all the way to the finish.

Ellerman repeatedly stabbed at the lead with low side moves, sometimes even taking control only to see Miller use his cushion groove to blast back around and reclaim command.

Miller ended up with this third oval win of the season, taking the win by a small margin of .613 seconds over Ellerman.

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

Heats went to Miller, Reigle and Dave Grube.

DIETRICH EDGES MONTEITH IN ANOTHER LINCOLN 410 SPRINT CAR CLASSIC;

Doug Hammaker makes last-lap pass for 358 sprint win; Bob Stough claims Central PA Legends feature win

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA – August 26, 2017 – It was another race for the ages at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

Danny Dietrich looked like he was on his way to a convincing win from his 11th starting spot after grabbing lead from polesitter and race-long leader Scott Fisher on the backstretch of lap 12 and dominating the next seven laps.

But enter 12th-starting and Lincoln points leader Brian Montieth.

A lap 19 red flag for a flipping Robbie Kendall, who turned over while trying to avoid a spinning Fisher in turns three and four Matt Campbell and Montieth in second and third for the restart and erased a three-second lead by Dietrich.

Montieth took the runner-up spot immediately after the restart, and set his sights on Dietrich with five laps to go.

He chased the seven-time Lincoln winner into lapped traffic with two laps to go, and actually drove around Dietrich for the lead in turns one and two of the last lap. Dietrich returned the favor the final turns for his 38th career Lincoln win and $3,769 top prize, which included a $200 bonus and a $200 hard-charger award from race sponsors McSherrystown Moose Lodge #720 and Lawrence’s Body Shop, and a $169 bonus in memory of Chris Glatfelter on the anniversary of his passing.

“I knew I wasn’t very good. It seemed like after the red…we ran a right rear that we ran 10 or 14 laps in the feature at the Grove last night,” said Dietrich in victory lane, “It just felt like it was going away. I kept getting tight in the left rear and was just overdriving the car. I reached for the wing trying to move it forward and there was no more ‘forward’ to go, so I knew I was going to be in trouble and it was a matter of hanging on.”

“I made a bad move there going into one and he drove around me and I just thought I’d better go to the top because I didn’t figure he was going to follow anybody on the top going into three,” said Dietrich in describing the final lap, “I figured I’d take my shot and go there. I ran front bumper into (Dwayne) Gutshall just to make sure there wasn’t any gap for him to get into.”

“Sometimes you’re that good that early that you worry that maybe you’re too good too early,” continued Dietrich, “I think that was the case tonight. Brian’s car came in good and he’s always tough, especially when you get to racing hard like we did there that last lap. I knew he had to be on me before that, but I couldn’t roll the cushion with the left rear too tight and I had to roll out of the throttle. Glad to be standing here to get a win for this team.”

Campbell settled for third, with defending track champ Alan Krimes and Freddie Rahmer fifth. Sixth through tenth were Brandon Rahmer, Cory Haas, Chad Trout, Tim Wagaman, and Gerard McIntyre, Jr.

Heats for the 25 “410” Sprints on hand were won by Montieth, Glenndon Forsythe, and McIntyre.

Doug Hammaker came from ninth starting spot to make a last-lap pass and score the win in the fourth leg of the five-race K1 Race Gear 358 Sprint Car Summer Series event.

It looked like 12th-starting Chase Dietz, who had a four-second lead with five laps to go, was well on his way to the win before he suddenly slowed on the front stretch with a flat tire, as did third-place Jack Eldreth at the same time, bringing out the caution on lap 24. That handed the lead over to Troy Wagaman, Jr., who came from 17th starting spot, with Hammaker right behind.

On the restart, Wagaman held Hammaker off on lap 24, but Hammaker made the race-winning pass going into turns one and two of the final lap. Jeff Halligan, who came from the rear after an early-race spin, also drove under Wagaman in turn two of the final lap and finished second, with Wagaman settling for third, Tyler Ross fourth, and Cody Fletcher fifth.

Sixth through tenth were 21st-starting Kyle Denmyer, 23rd-starting Chris Frank (the hard charger), 22nd-starting Steve Drevicki, 24th-starting Trey Hivner, and point leader Adrian Shaffer, who came back through the field following a 13th-lap spin.

Heats for the 34 “358” Sprints on hand were won by Jake Eldreth, Jon Stewart, Kody Hartlaub, and Nyle Berkes, with Kyle Denmyer winning the consolation.

Bob Stough out-dueled three-time winner Mason Chaney to score his first win of the year in the 20-lap Central PA Legends feature. Stough took advantage of a 12-car inversion to start fourth in the feature, and wrestled the lead away from Chaney on lap 13. He led the rest of the way, with Lucas Montgomery catching Chaney on the final lap to finish second. Fourth and fifth behind Chaney were Travis McClelland and Donnie Leiby, in his best-ever Lincoln finish.

Stough’s win completed his return from an early-second injury (broken wrist). It was his eighth career Lincoln Legends win.

Heats for the 31 Central PA Legends were won by Hayden Pascoe, Chad Earnst, and Montgomery, with Scott Smith winning the consolation.

Next Saturday September 2nd at 7:30 PM Lincoln Speedway will hold the BOB LEIBY MEMORIAL for the 410 Sprints paying $4,000 to win in their final point race for the 2017 racing season. The 358 Sprints and Central PA Legends will round out the evening’s racing action and capped-off with a spectacular FIREWORKS display. Gates will open at 5:30 PM.

Buckwalter And Keller Wire Williams Grove Sprint Fields For Wins

8/25/17

Mechanicsburg – Steve Buckwalter and Cody Keller wired the sprint car fields for victories on Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway, in the 410 and 358 sprint car divisions, respectively.

Buckwalter started second in the field to lead every lap of the 25-circuit main event for the 410 sprint cars.

His pace was slowed only once, on the fifth lap when the red flag appeared for a fire on the machine of Eric Tomecek.

For the restart, Kody Lehman chased Buckwalter but fifth starter Cory Haas moved into the second spot on the 13th tour just as the leader entered the backmarkers.

Eighth starter Brock Zearfoss followed Haas and took third one lap later.

Although Zearfoss took his shots at Haas, it was Haas who tried to spoil Buckwalter’s party late in the race.

Haas steadily drove down Buckwalter’s advantage, shaving a full second off of his lead from lap 17 to lap 20.

However during the final circuits, Buckwalter was again able to stretch out his advantage to 1.277 seconds at the finish.

Haas shot low across the third and fourth turns repeatedly during the late going trying to stick with Buckwalter but instead rode home second.

The victory was the eighth of Buckwalter’s career at Williams Grove Speedway.

Zearfoss crossed the line in third followed by Lucas Wolfe and Freddie Rahmer.

Sixth through 10th went to Alan Krimes, Kody Lehman, Anthony Macri, Brian Montieth and Rick Lafferty.

Heats went to Nicole Bower, Lafferty and Wolfe.

Keller of Selinsgrove ran the ragged edge and sometimes over it to pick up his first career 358-sprint victory at the speedway.

After starting second in the field, Keller would lead all 25 laps of the K1 RaceGear Summer Series main event to take home a $1,500 payday.

However the Snyder County pilot nearly gave the win away on several occasions when he jumpsed the cusion at both ends of the speedway.

The initial lap of the 358 sprint main was halted for an eight-car melee in the third turn that saw at least two cars flip.

No injuries were reported however.

Keller entered the backmarkers on the ninth tour of the event, chased by Brett Wanner and Phil Walter.

However one-time 2017 winner Kevin Nouse was on the move through the top-five and eventually worked his way into second with a pair of laps to go.

And by that time, Keller was losing ground and hopping the cushion repeatedly, creating a closer finish at the end than perhaps would have developed otherwise.

Nouse rode home second behing an exciting performance by Keller, followed by Wanner, Chad Trout and Troy Wagaman Jr.

Sixth through 10th went to Steve Owings, Chase Dietz, Phil Walter, Chris Frank and Brent Shearer.

Heats went to Walter, Keller, Nouse and Nyle Berkes with Denny Gross scoring the consolation race.

NEW EGYPT SPEEDWAY PIONEER POLE BUILDINGS JERSEY RUSH VII. . . . .

JJ GRASSO GRABS THIRD 410 SPRINT JERSEY RUSH WIN; PAUCH JR. POWERS TO MODIFIED VICTORY

NEW EGYPT, NJ (August 23, 2017) – Two of the region’s most popular racing divisions converged on New Egypt Speedway, this past Wednesday, for Jersey Rush VII presented by Pioneer Pole Buildings. JJ Grasso of Middletown, DE scored the win – and the $5,000 prize money -- in the 410 Sprint Car portion of the event, while Billy Pauch Jr. of Frenchtown, NJ was victorious in an action-packed Modified feature.

“The set-up on this car was perfect tonight,” Grasso gushed in victory lane. “All I had to do is get behind the wheel and drive – it couldn’t have been more perfect.”

Robbie Stillwaggon and Kyle Reinhardt led the field to the green flag, and kicked off the 30-lap A-Main in fine fashion charging hard on the topside of the 7/16-mile dirt track – it was short lived as Danny Dietrich spun on the second circuit bringing the yellow out for the first time.

Stillwaggon powered ahead on the start, with Grasso moving into the second position. Grasso slid inside Stillwaggon on lap four, with Kyle Reinhardt moving into the second position. The caution flew for the second time on the lap 15 when Mark Bitner’s No. 15 slowed on the front stretch.

It was all Grasso on the restart, pulling away from the field and maintaining a sizable advantage as laps clicked down. Grasso and the No.37 BK Trucking machine would roll on for the win with Kyle Reinhardt coming home in the second position. Lucas Wolfe finished in the third position after an exciting battle with Davey Sammons – who settled for fourth and Ryan Smith rounded out the top-five finishers.

The big-block of three-time defending New Egypt Speedway track champion, Ryan Godown led the field to the start of the 30-lap modified feature event with Danny Bouc on his outside. Godown took the lead on the initial start, but a lap two caution slowed the field.

On the restart, Bouc took the lead with Pauch Jr. following into the second position. Action slowed for the second time on the third circuit.

Pauch Jr. took the lead on the restart with Duane Howard powering the Norm’s Save Station No. 357 into the second spot.

At the halfway point, Pauch Jr. maintained control, while all eyes were fixated on the four-car battle for the second position – with Howard holding off challenges from Bouc, Jeff Strunk, and Brandon Grosso.

Pauch would weave through heavy lapped traffic, maintaining a sizable advantage over the battle for second place, and collecting the $3,000 Jersey Rush VII victory. Howard held on to the runner-up position, while Danny Bouc finished third, Brandon Grosso in fourth, and Jeff Strunk rounded out the top five.

Danny Dietrich claimed the CnB Chubby Quick Time Award with a fast lap of 13.944 in 410 Sprint Car Time Trials.

Oliver Communications Group Heat Race Bonuses went to Robbie Stillwaggon and Davey Sammons in the 410 Sprint Cars and Danny Bouc and Brandon Grosso in the Modifieds.

Pioneer Pole Buildings Jersey Rush VII is a co-promotion between Lenny, Danny, and Davey Sammons along with special events promoter, Bob Miller.

SUNDAY, AUGUST 20, 2017 SUSQUEHANNA SPEEDWAY RACE RESULTS

GREG HODNETT DOMINATES ALL STARS AT SUSQUEHANNA Nick Sweigart Takes PASS IMCA 305 Sprint Win By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA…8/20/17 It had the makings of the last time the BAPS Coatings and Supplies 410 Sprint Series competed at Susquehanna Speedway when Greg Hodnett led all but the lap that counted.

Hodnett made sure that wasn’t the case in Sunday night’s Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions Justin Snyder Salute to the Troops event as he dominated all 30 laps of the A-Main to close out the four-race All Star swing through Central Pennsylvania.

Hodnett’s win also gave the PA Posse four straight weekend wins over the All Stars but the win was the Spring Grove drivers first All Star triumph since June 2015.

Hodnett won the first Dash that put him on the pole for the $5,000 to win event but a quick caution for a multi car pileup on the second lap slowed the pace.

When the green replaced the yellow, Hodnett immediately pulled away from the field as fourth starting Lucas Wolfe moved into the runner-up spot.

Wolfe stayed within striking distance of Hodnett who worked his way through heavy lapped traffic starting on lap eight as the race stayed green until the 25th lap when officials thought Tyler Esh was going to stop and threw the yellow flag.

The yellow wiped out a near six-second advantage Hodnett had over the field and put Wolfe on his bumper for the restart.

Like the July race, Wolfe chased Hodnett until the final lap when he stole the win but Hodnett wasn’t able to let that happen this time as he pulled away from Wolfe over the final five circuits to become the first repeat winner in BAPS 410 Sprint action this season at Susquehanna.

Hodnett’s win in the Mike Heffner owned #27 was his fifth of the year in Central PA and came over Wolfe by nearly two seconds.

Lance Dewease finished third ahead of Anthony Macri and Brock Zearfoss with Tim Shaffer, Mark Smith, Danny Dietrich, Dale Blaney and Max Stambaugh completing the top ten finishers.

Ryan Smith paced the 36-car All Star field in time trials with a lap of 15.317 seconds to earn the $500 bonus from Emory Transmissions.

All Star heat races were won by Dewease, Zearfoss, Macri and Hodnett while Hodnett and Macri were the two Dash winners. Sammy Swindell won the B-Main.

Trey Starks picked up the $500 bonus from Brown and Miller Race Solutions for the Hard Charger. Starks started 23rd and finished 14th.

Like Hodnett, Nick Sweigart wired the field to post the win in the 20-lap Freedmont® Mortgage PASS/IMCA 305 Sprint car feature.

Starting on the pole, Sweigart dominated the event but two late race cautions kept things interesting at the front but it was Sweigart scoring his first win at the track ahead of Kyle Smith, Darren Miller, Austin Bishop and Kassidy Kreitz with 16th starter Dave Brown coming home sixth over Eddie Wagner, Zach Newlin, 21st starter Ken Duke, Jr. and John Scarborough.

Drew Ritchey, Scott Ellerman, Ian Detweiler and Darren Miller were heat race winners for the 37 Freedmont® Mortgage 305 Sprints. Ken Duke, Jr. and Greg Dobrosky were double consolation winners.

The next BAPS 410 Sprint Series event will be on Thursday night, September 21 when the 410 Sprints will be joined by the Central PA Legends. Race time will be 7PM.

Susquehanna Speedway returns to action Saturday night, August 26 on Hanover Auto Team Night featuring the Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman, Bernheisel Race Cars 358 Late Models, Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stocks and Superior Homes Extreme Stocks. Race time is 7PM.

SATURDAY, AUGUST 19, 2017 SUSQUEHANNA SPEEDWAY RACE RESULTS

RUSS MITTEN GETS THIRD WIN AT SUSQUEHANNA Christine Scores Fourth LM Win While McClane Gets Third Extreme Win By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA…8/19/17

Russ Mitten’s third win of the season in Saturday’s 25-lap Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman feature at Susquehanna Speedway has turned the point battle heading into the final stretch of the season into a barnburner.

With Mitten’s win and Scott Dellinger’s runner-up finish coupled with leading winner Kenny Edkin’s first DNF of the season, the battle at the top is intense with 45 points separating the top three and just 150 separating the fourth place driver.

Mitten started ninth aboard his Newville Electrical Services, RPM Chassis and wasted little time in moving to the front as Tom Wyckoff led the first four laps before Timmie Barrick took over with five laps complete.

Barrick held the point until lap 10 when a caution flew.

On the restart, contact was made by Gregg Foster with Barrick, who then got into Tony Jackson, ending both of their good runs at the front.

Foster then took over before Mitten grabbed the top spot on lap 15 and then had to hold on through three yellows, including one with three laps to go before taking the checkered flag.

Mitten’s win, his 10th straight top 10 finish, moved him into a tie for the track point lead with Dellinger, who started 10th and finished in the runner-up spot Saturday night with Foster taking third ahead of Doug Dodson and 21st starter and Artwerks/Team 14 Hard Charger Paul Miller.

Completing the top ten finishers were Frankie Herr, Wyckoff, 15th starter Davey Walsh, Chad Smith and 18th starter Bruce Buckwalter, Jr.

Garrett Williamson, Foster and Wyckoff won heats for the 26 Super Sportsman.

It was all Randy Christine, Jr. in the 20-lap Bernheisel Race Cars 358 Late Model feature as he led flag to flag for his fourth feature win of the year.

Christine started third and drove to the front at the start and drove off from the field to post the win over Chase Billet, Drew Weisser, ninth starter and ArtwerksHard Charger Sam Rial and Cory Merkel.

Heats for the 11 late models went to Cameron Benyou and Cory Merkel.

Patrick McClane came out on top of a side by side battle to capture his third win of the year in the 20-lap Superior Homes Extreme Stock feature.

McClane started fifth, took the lead from Alex Updegraff on lap 11 and held off last week’s winner Travis Horan for the win with Updegraff third over 12th starter and Artwerks Hard Charger Kyle Emig and Jeff Gill.

Brandon Staccone and Johnny Palm won heats for the 14 cars.

Roland Brown was the winner of the Classic Car Club feature over Neal Reamer, Steve Clemo, Ron Grove and Chad Stine.

Susquehanna Speedway returns to action Saturday night, August 26 on Hanover Auto Team Night featuring the Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman, Bernheisel Race Cars 358 Late Models, Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stocks and Superior Homes Extreme Stocks. Race time is 7PM.

World of Outlaws Star Sheppard Wires For Port Royal Late Model Win

Zearfoss Races From 11th Spot In Sprints To Win Third Of Port Season

8/19/17

Port Royal – World of Outlaws Late Model star Brandon Sheppart of New Berlin, Illinois, wired the field for a 40-lap, $10,000 victory at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night in the series first return to the track since 2008.

In the 410 sprint car main, Brock Zearfoss of Jonestown started 11th and weaved through the field in front to pick up his third oval win of the season.

Zearfoss took home $3,500 including a $300 bonus for winning from the 11th starting spot.

The racing program was delayed more than three hours thanks to rains that hit the track just as initial warm ups were being held at 6:30 pm.

Brandon Sheppard claimed his 13th win of the season with the World of Outlaws Craftsman Late Model Series at Port Royal.

"Hats off to my guys," said Sheppard. "They work really hard on this thing to give me a good car. It started getting black there in the groove and we stayed a little bit freed up in the cushion there, so I think a little bit of an adjustment would've been better.”

“It was a little treacherous out there but nothing fell off of the car so good job to the team. I owe it all to them guys."

Sheppard started on the outside of pole sitter, Tyler Erb, for the feature but quickly found his way around his fellow Rocket Chassis XR1 driver on the first lap.

A total of four caution flags and one red flag hampered Sheppard’s pace throughout the distance on the tacky track as the cushion built all around the oval.

Erb was able to hold on to second for a few laps early before a caution fell on lap 3 for Matt Cosner who slowed on the track. The dixie double-file restart placed Jason Covert, who was running in third at the time, on the bottom and Erb on the top of the half-mile speedway as the field went back to green.

Covert then made his move and successfully claimed second from the Outlaw young gun.

Erb was holding a steady third position on the track while fending off charges from Devin Moran and Chris Madden for multiple laps. Unfortunately, bad luck continued to follow the No. 91 First Class Septic machine as he shredded his right rear tire on lap 26 which sidelined him for the remainder of the show.

Due to Erb's retirement from the shootout, Madden inherited the final podium position and began to work on catching Covert and Sheppard.

During the last 10 laps of the feature, things began heating up between Sheppard and Covert as Sheppard’s advantage of 1.336 seconds was cut down to half a car length by lap 36.

In fact, every time the pair would compete under extended green flag runs, Covert would steadily narrow the gap only to see his progress set back by another caution flag.

On lap 37 as Covert honed in on Sheppard amid lapped traffic on the frontchute, the machine of Nick Dickson became collateral damage in the race while going a lap down.

With Covert to his inside and Sheppard just ahead, Dickson was sent careening up and over the cushion in the first turn where he promptly dug in and flipped completely over before coming to rest against the top side guardrail.

Although his ride took a toll, Dickson walked away uninjured from the red flag incident.

After the restart, Sheppard pulled away from Covert and Madden's grasp as he created a 1.836 difference between himself and the field before the finish.

"Half-miles haven't been my best tracks but my team has stuck behind me and they are really good support for me," said Sheppard.

"They put it all on me to get the job done and it's been a big learning curve this year. I feel like we have made leaps and bounds on the half-miles so that's good for me. Josh [Richards] was always good at [half-miles] so I had some big shoes to fill but I am getting better and I am hoping for a good rest of the season."

Heats went to Jeff Rine, Chris Madden, Sheppard and Covert with twin consolations going to Jared Miley and Dan Stone.

Overall fast time in the 36-car field was set by Sheppard with a time of 17.589 seconds.

Jeff Rine lowered the eight-lap track record in the first heat race before Chris Madden lowered his mark in the second heat, setting the new mark at 2:21.563.

Although some drivers chose to give up on the sprint car event before it got started, Brock Zearfoss proved that passing was no problem in the 25-lap sprint car feature as he zipped from his sixth row starting spot to the win.

Second starter Daryl Stimeling took the lead at the start as Nicole Bower gave chase with both Mike Wagner and Zearfoss moving through the field.

Wagner raced into third from the ninth starting spot with eight laps complete but Zearfoss overtook him for the position just two laps later.

With 13 tours completed Zearfoss blasted around Bower for second and set his sights on leader Stimeling and the battle for the lead unfolded.

Zearfoss made an attempt underneath Stimeling in the first and second turns with 11 laps to go but Stimeling was stout on the cushion and pulled back in front as the pair raced onto the backchute.

Zearfoss was regrouping for another stab at the lead with 10 to go when Sammy Swindell stopped on the frontstretch, bringing out the races only caution flag.

“The Jonestown Jet,” Zearfoss struck for the lead on the restart when he blasted the bottom as the leaders entered the first corner to come up with control as the field shot off of the second corner.

And then once in front, Zearfoss checked out on the field, opening up a half-lap advantage of 6.671 seconds over Stimeling by the finish.

Mike Wagner wrestled third away from Bower during the last two laps with Bower settling for fourth and 16th starter and point leader Dylan Cisney finishing in fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Logan Wagner, Blane Heimbach, TJ Stutts, Joey Hershey and Trenton Sheaffer.

Heats went to AJ Flick, Jared Esh and Stimeling.

Abbottstown, PA

ALL-STAR CIRCUIT OF CHAMPIONS

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Saturday, August 26, 2017 (7:30 PM) – YORK COUNTY RACING CLUB NIGHT - 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints (“K1 RaceGear 358 Sprint Summer Series” finale), and Central PA Legends

Saturday, September 2, 2017 (7:30 PM) - BOB LEIBY MEMORIAL - 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints, and Central PA Legends, plus FIREWORKS [***Final points race for 410 Sprints***]

FORSYTHE SCORES FIRST ARTIC CAT ALL-STAR WIN AT LINCOLN;

CHANEY MAKES LAST TURN PASS TO EDGE MONTGOMERY IN CENTRAL PA LEGENDS

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA – August 19, 2017 – One thing can be said about Glenndon Forsythe’s first career All-Star Circuit of Champions win at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night. He earned it.

Forsythe joined Cory Haas on the front row of the 30-lap $5,000 to win feature by virtue of winning their respective dashes. Haas led the first lap, but Forsythe led the rest, holding several challengers through heavy lapped traffic, including a breathtaking move through three lapped cars to hold off Haas and Danny Dietrich through turns and four of lap 28.

“That’s Lincoln. If you race enough green flag laps here, you’re going to get to lapped traffic,” said a jubilant Forsythe in victory lane, “I need to get better at it, but I did enough to stay out front, and I still can’t believe we’re here tonight.”

The race-saving move came just before a caution for a stopped Tim Wagaman in turn four of lap 29, setting up a green-white-checkered finish. On the subsequent restart, Dietrich spun in turn two while trying to slide under Haas for second, with All-Star points leader Chad Kemenah assuming for the final restart.

“I saw the scoreboard there with Cory (Haas) and Danny (Dietrich)there. Cory had been there the whole race, so he wasn’t slackin’, and I was happy to see that yellow come out. I was terrible in lapped traffic, and I was falling out of the seat and needed break. I got the break when I needed it,” said Forsythe, “I can’t be happier for (car owner) Norm Wisner and this whole team. Sponsor Dynatech Controls had its company picnic out in the parking lot this afternoon, so I’m happy for that.”

Kemenah did catch Haas for second on the final restart when Haas slid high trying to get by Forsythe for the race lead and crossed a close second, with Haas settling for third, Freddie Rahmer fourth, and Matt Campbell fifth.

Sixth through tenth were 13th-starting Alan Krimes, Tim Shaffer, 18th-starting Robbie Kendall, Brian Montieth (who came from the rear after an early-race spin), and 21st-starting Anthony Macri.

Sprint heats were won by Shaffer, Ryan Smith, Dietrich, and Kemenah, with Chad Trout winning the B-Main. A pair of dashes were won by Haas and Forsythe, and fast time in time trials over the 40-car All Star Sprint field was set by Caleb Helms with a 1-lap time of 13.401-seconds (100.739 MPH).

Littlestown’s Mason Chaney made a last-turn pass on Lucas Montgomery and led the final 100 yards to score his third Lincoln win of the year and the fourth of his Lincoln career in the 20-lap Central PA Legends feature,

Chaney, who was credited with a win in his heat despite crossing backwards after tangling with Harlon Leppo at the end, started third. Scott Smith led the first four laps before yielding to fifth-starting Montgomery, who led until the final turn.

Chaney, who spun but kept going when Leppo again made contact with him in turns three and four of lap 13, assumed second for the restart and dogged Montgomery the rest of the way.

The race for the lead became a three-car battle when Hayden Pascoe joined the chase with four laps to go.

Chaney drove under Montgomery on the final turn to the checkered, with Montgomery settling for second and Pascoe third. 15-starting Bob Stough came on late to finish fourth, with Bill Diehl fifth.

Heats for the 28 Central PA Legends were won by Travis Perry, Smith, and Leppo, with Zachary Settle winning the consolation.

Next Saturday, August 26th, it will be the rescheduled McSherrystown Moose Lodge #720 Night and the second of two York County Racing Club Nights on the year. The 410 Sprints will be joined by the 358 Sprints in a “K1 RaceGear 358 Sprint Summer Series” event and the Central PA Legends. Gates open at 5:30 p.m., with racing action to get underway at 7:30 p.m

FROM WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY

AUGUST 18, 2017

DANNY DIETRICH WINS JACK GUNN MEMORIAL AT WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY

MECHANCISBURG, PA – Danny Dietrich inherited the lead when Rico Abreu blew a tire and went on to win the Jack Gunn Memorial Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway beating the All Star Circuit of Champions Sprint cars.

His win in the Gary Kauffman sprinter was worth $5,000.

“It’s great,” said Dietrich. “I’m proud of my guys. It’s great to be standing here again. We’ve had a rough season here and this might turn it around. This isn’t my kind of race track, but we had a fast car all night long. We were pretty good on the bottom.”

Lucas Wolfe and Abreu shared the front row to start the 30-lap main event. They raced side-by-side down the frontstretch and into turn one. Abreu secured the lead as they raced off turn two.

Anthony Macri got high in turn four and Danny Dietrich drove into third and Sammy Swindell into fourth.

Abreu reached slower traffic with six laps completed.

The heavy lapped traffic allowed Wolfe and Dietrich to close on the leader. They were all over him, but couldn’t make the pass.

Abreu squeezed in between a lapped car and the fence off turn two to maintain some space between himself and second.

Dietrich, who started third, used an inside move off turn four to take second from Wolfe with nine laps completed.

Abreu continued to work by traffic eventually finding clear track again. Dietrich was slowly closing on the leader.

Abreu blew a left rear tire in turn two and spun bringing out the caution with 18 laps completed.

“I was lucky enough to see it and get ready for it,” said Dietrich. “I wasn’t sure which way he was going to go. I’m glad I saw him when I did and I didn’t get into him and we were able to escape that.”

Dietrich assumed the lead and controlled the restart. Wolfe was running third, but had a left front flat tire as Greg Hodnett drove by.

Macri spun in turn one bringing out another caution with 11 to go. The red flag flew allowing crews to refuel.

Dietrich drove away on the restart. He reached slower traffic and Swindell closed. He jumped the cushion in turn four trying to lap Caleb Helms. He was able to make the pass and gain some distance again.

Swindell took a lap or so to pass Helms and finished 1.726 seconds back of Dietrich. Hodnett, 11th starter Lance Dewease and Wolfe completed the top five. All Star point leader Chad Kemenah, 22nd starter Brian Montieth, 13th starter Tim Shaffer, Mark Smith and Trey Starks rounded out the top 10.

Trey Starks set overall fast time with a lap of 16.515. Heat races for the 37-car field were won by Rico Abreu, Sammy Swindell, Anthony Macri and Mark Smith. Tyler Esh won the B-main. Wolfe won the first dash and Abreu the second.

Scott Ellerman won the 305 Sprint car feature over Austin Bishop, Bobby Butler, Jaremi Hanson, and Zach Newlin. Ellerman took the lead early from Butler and then held him off over the second half of the race. Dave Brown, Tyler Reeser, Eddie Wagner, Colby Dice and Darren Miller rounded out the top 10. Ellerman also clinched the Beerhill Cup Series for the 305's. A field off 45 cars were on hand.

Levan Machine & Truck Equipment Smoke on the Hill was a Huge Success. . . . .

LIKE FATHER, LIKE SON: FREDDIE RAHMER COLLECTS GRANDVIEW THUNDER CUP ALL STAR VICTORY

BECHTESLVILLE, PA (August 17, 2017) – In front of a jam-packed NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series crowd, Freddie Rahmer of Salfordville, PA became a third-generation winner at Grandview Speedway collecting the victory in the 3rd Annual Thunder Cup presented by Levan Machine and Truck Equipment.

“My Dad won here, My Grandfather won here, I can’t begin to tell you how much it means to win here,” an elated Freddie Rahmer said in victory lane.

Mark Smith of Sunbury, PA and Ryan Smith of Kunkletown, PA led the 26 car field to the green flag. Mark Smith pulled to the lead quickly with Ryan Smith close in tow, and Freddie Rahmer powering past Swindell into the third spot.

The leaders hit heavy lapped traffic on the sixth circuit around the one-third mile – with Mark Smith weaving in and out of cars, extending his lead over the pack. Smith’s sizable lead was short lived as traffic closed the gap between the top runners giving Ryan Smith the opportunity to pounce on Mark Smith.

A Lap 13 red flag flew for Hunter Mackison, who got upside down in turn 2, clearing the boiler plate and landing off the race track. The incident that retired Mackison and Brandon Rahmer.

Mark Smith charged back to the top spot when the race resumed, while Ryan Smith fought hard for the second spot with Freddie Rahmer. Rahmer dove to the inside of the race track crossing under Ryan Smith, but Smith battled back on the inside.

The yellow flag flew on lap 21 for Brandon Spithaler. During the yellow flag, the right rear tire of leader, Mark Smith’s machine went flat sending the No. M1 pit side. Fortunately for Smith, a caution on the restart allowed him to change the tire and rejoin the field.

Ryan Smith inherited the lead and charged to the top side of turn one on the restart, maintaining control on the top side of the one-third-mile speedway. Smith held the top spot for four circuits before Rahmer was able to shoot toward the inside of the race track completing the pass on lap 25.

It was all Rahmer for the balance of the 35-lap feature event, maintaining a lead of five-car-lengths when the checkered flag flew.

Ryan Smith would settle for the second position, Spring Grove, PA’s Greg Hodnett in the third spot, St. Helena, CA’s Rico Abreu in fourth, and Phoenixville, PA’s Brian Montieth rounding out the top five.

Alan Krimes of Denver, PA took home a $150 hard-charger bonus. Chad Kemenah set Quick time of the evening with a lap of 11.545. Heat races were won by Sammy Swindell, Dale Blaney, Ryan Smith, and Mark Smith.

Minersville, PA’s Mike Lisowski scored a hard fought victory in the 25-lap Sportsman feature, collecting a $1,300 winner’s share.

Nathan Mohr and Jack Butler led the 24-car field to the green flag with Butler jumping out to the early lead and dominating the first-half of the racing event. Lisowski – from a fifth place starting position – moved into third in the early stages of the event, and despite multi-car battles took the lead just passed the halfway point.

Lisowski’s main challenge came mid-way through the race when Jordan Henn powered from a 12th place starting position to battle for the top spot. No one could dethrone Lisowski, who claimed the victory.

Ryan Higgs came home in the second position, Louden Reimert in third, Joe Funk in fourth, and current Grandview weekly point leader, Brian Hirthler.

The NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series returns on Saturday, October 14 for Mods at the Madhouse. A Big-Block vs. Small-Block challenge event that also includes Sportsman, and MASS 305 Sprint Cars.

Round 3 of PA Midget Week: Thorson Repeats At The Clyde

Tim Buckwalter Makes Late Race Charge To Win 600 Speedweek Opener

By Barry Angstadt

Newmanstown, PA - Tanner Thorson proved once again that he is a master at negotiating the tight bullring known as Lanco's Clyde Martin Memorial Speedway. But it was flip by one of his rivals that may have provided the key to his victory in Tuesday night's USAC National Midget Championship event at the Newmanstown, Pa. oval.

In Round Three of PA Midget Week, Tyler Courtney and Justin Grant lined up on the front row for the start of the 40-lap A-Main. They went side by side through turns one and two, where Grant got so much bite that his right side grabbed the clay and the left side of his Clauson-Marshall No. 39 launched skyward. Grant twirled in mid air before coming back down on all four wheels and bringing out an immediate red flag.

That incident moved Thorson, the Minden, Nevada racer, up to the front row alongside Courtney. When the second attempt at a start went green, Thorson throttled his Keith Kunz-Curb-Agajanian Motorsports, JBL Audio No. 67 into the lead with teammate Spencer Bayston charging past Courtney and into the runner-up spot.

Broken Arrow, Oklahoma's Brady Bacon looked to have the fastest car in the first quarter of the race. Bacon sizzled by Courtney for third, then slipped past Bayston for second on lap five. Courtney, Bayston, and Shane Golobic swapped second, third, and fourth positions for the next several circuits as Bacon tried his best to cut into the sizeable lead built by Thorson. He was closing on the leader as they approached the back of the field, where traffic would have no doubt played into Bacon's favor, but a timely yellow with 17 tours complete worked to Thorson's advantage.

The caution cleared the track in front of the leaders, and Thorson took off once more as the green reappeared. While Bacon remained within striking distance, Thorson was definitely in control. On a restart with 19 to go, Courtney dashed past Bayston, the National Midget tour's point leader, to take over third position.

Thorson worked lapped traffic flawlessly over the final laps to produce a sequel to his 2016 victory at Clyde Martin. After a couple of near misses in the first two rounds of PA Midget Week, Thorson finally scored the "W", giving Keith Kunz and Toyota their 150th triumph together.

Bacon, Courtney, Bayston, and Golobic made up the rest of the top five as the checkered waved, with Path Valley winner Chad Boat finishing sixth. Tim Buckwalter was the best of the locals with a seventh place effort, while Tanner Carrick, Tony DiMattia, and Landon Simon completed the top ten.

Golobic recorded the Pro Source quick time of the night at 10.554-seconds in USAC Midget time trials. With 23 Midgets entering the event, qualifying heat victories went to Grant, Buckwalter, and Alex Bright.

Tuesday also served as opening night for the Hyper Racing 600 Sprint Speedweek series presented by SmallCarWeekly.com. And Tim Buckwalter showed everyone that he will be a force in the four-race Speedweek tour.

Jarid Kunkle grabbed the early lead over pole sitter Heath Hehnly on a restart with one lap in the books. Kunkle set the pace through lap 19 with Hehnly nipping at his heels and Buckwalter challenging a strong running Ryan Groff for third.

On a restart with 11 to go, Hehnly forged back in front of Kunkle as Buckwalter secured third and Bradley Brown ducked under Groff for the fourth spot. Another caution period with nine revolutions remaining provided the opportunity for Buckwalter to muscle his way past Kunkle for second as the race went back to green.

Buckwalter began hounding Hehnly for the top spot, pulling even with the leader on several occasions. Hehnly fended off the attacks until they headed off turn four with the white flag waving, when Buckwalter fired off the bottom of the corner to move in front.

Tanner Thorson led the first five laps of the USAC feature before Brady Bacon assumed the top spot and continued to set the pace until lap 22 when his great run came to an end after slowing on the speedway.

This turned the lead back to Thorson who had Bayston on his tailtank. Thorson would hold the lead until lap 28 when Bayston drove into the lead as the white flag flew but Grant would steal the win away on the final lap when Bayston and Thorson nearly took each other out while battling for the win.

It has been since 2008 that the World of Outlaws Late Models competed at historic Port Royal, when Clint Smith of Senoia, Georgia, took the victory.

Prior to that, Darrell Lanigan of Union, Kentucky, took a win in the only other Port Royal circuit visit in 2007.

All Stars Return To Williams Grove For 35th Jack Gunn Memorial Friday

305 sprints also in action August 18

8/13/17

Mechanicsburg – The second appearance of the season at Williams Grove Speedway by the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions Sprint Cars is on tap this Friday night, August 18 for the 35th annual Jack Gunn Memorial.

Presented by Superior Plus Energy Services, the All Stars Gunn Memorial will offer the sprint car stars a $5,000 to win payday with a 30-lap feature.

The IMCA/PASS 305 sprints will share the card with the All Stars featuring a 7:30 start time this week.

Adult general admission is $20 for the racing program with youth ages 13 – 20 priced at $10.

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

The Williams Grove portion of the weekly 50/50 drawing will be donated to the RAACE Foundation.

Findlay, Ohio’s Chad Kemenah will lead the All Stars band into Williams Grove as the circuit point leader. Pennsylvania’s own Ryan Smith is chasing Kemenah for the title.

The All Stars will also bring names likeCaleb Armstrong, Max Stambaugh, Caleb Helms and others to the track to compete in a showdown with the Pennsylvania Posse sprint car stars.

Earlier this season at Williams Grove, Lance Dewease won an April visit by the All Stars to contest the Tommy Hinnershitz Classic.

In the years since the first All Stars show at Williams Grove back in 1970, the local drivers have never allowed a touring All Star to claim victory at Williams Grove.

And they are hoping to keep that record intact yet again when the rivalry renews on Friday night.

If the Posse stars can again successfully defend their turf against the All Stars in 2017, they will have pushed their record to a perfect 32 and 0.

The Jack Gunn Memorial has been run in honor of the late Promoter Of The Year every year since 1983.

Gunn was nationally recognized in 1979 as Promoter Of The Year and not only guided ovals like Williams Grove to worldwide fame but who also at times during his career held the reigns of tracks like Penn National, Selinsgrove and Hagerstown, Md.

Over the years only the sports most elite drivers have driven to victory in the prestigious event.

Names like Bobby Allen, Doug Wolfgang, Dave Blaney, Kenny Jacobs, Don Kreitz Jr., Frankie Kerr, Lance Dewease, Stevie Smith, Fred Rahmer, Greg Hodnett and Daryn Pittman all dot the event win list.

Brian Montieth is the defending Gunn Memorial champion.

This week’s race will be another date in the 2017 Hoosier Diamond Series.

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY

12 August 2017 By Michael Batz

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY WINS RACE WITH WEATHER SATURDAY! TOMECECK, BERNHEISEL, SLANKER AND ZOOK SCORE VICTORIES AND SELINSGROVE FORD BONUS MONEY!

SELINSGROVE, Pa. -- The Super Late Models were competing in two different championship races on Saturday night at Selinsgrove Speedway. Drivers were challenging for the Jeff’s Auto Body and Recycling Selinsgrove Speedway title as well as continuing the charge for the Moon Shine Camo Route 35 challenge series. Neither championship was separated by more 25 points in the top three spots going into the night.

Bryan Bernheisel started from the front row and although he was challenged a few times throughout the event, it was a second straight victory for “Kid Lazer”.

Moon Shine Camo Route 35 challenge series point leader Colby Frye worked through lap traffic well gaining a couple spots to second, but never got in a position to challenge the race leader before a caution flag was thrown on lap 14.

The restart allowed Bernheisel to show some strength as he broke away from second place Frye and third place Chad Hollenbeck.

The yellow flag was back out a few laps later and this time Hollenbeck was able to take second from Frye. Bernheisel used that opportunity to pull away again.

The yellow was thrown for the final time on lap 20. Hollenbeck and Frye waged another battle for the second spot, but Frye slid back outside the top three. Bernheisel had set sail to his second win in a row in the 25-lap, $2,500-to-win feature followed by Hollenbeck and Dylan Yoder. Hayes Mattern and Frye crossed the line fourth and fifth.

Tony Adams recovered from an early race accident to run sixth followed by Steve Campbell, Meade Hahn, Kenny Trevitz, and Dave Stamm.

Heat races for the Late Models were won by Bernheisel, Frye, and Adams.

Eric Tomecek started from the pole position and admitted that a good starting spot in the Untied Racing Club’s appearance at Selinsgrove Speedway on Saturday played a part in a victory; however, it was not all an easy drive. A tricky race track pushed Tomecek to his limits as he raced the speedway and cut his way through lap traffic for the $2,500 win.

The battling was behind Tomecek for the second and third spots. Adam Carberry, Cody Keller, and Curt Michael traded the second spot at times over the 25-lap feature before Keller grabbed it for good. Jason Shultz rounded out the top three finishers from his 18th starting spot. Michael and Carberry were fourth and fifth.

Sixth through tenth in the finishing order were Derek Locke, Larry Kelleher, Davie Franek, Chad Layton, and Josh Weller.

Tomecek, Layton, and Nate Snyder won the heat races for the 360 Sprint Cars.

In an effort to take a big step toward his first Selinsgrove Speedway championship, Tommy Slanker was cautiously aggressive on Saturday night. Slanker made the pass of race leader Brandon Moser on lap five.

Slanker led the rest of the way to lock down his sixth win of the season. Moser, Kyle Bachman, Dustin Snook, and Shaun Lawton were the top five finishers. AJ Hoffman, Cory Long, John Schoch, Johnny Bouse, and Bill Conrad were the top ten finishers.

Bachman and Slanker crossed the line first in heat races on Saturday night.

Keith Bissinger led the early laps of the Roadrunner feature event before Ryan Zook made a late race pass to win his first Roadrunner feature at the track.

Zook had to maneuver around some lap traffic before the checkered flag. Bissinger got close but settled for a second place finish. Brian Johnson closed out the podium finishers.

Bob Bussey and Will Brunson were the top five.

Tom Underwood led the sixth through tenth place finishers. Behind Underwood were Chase Kapner, Tom Brunson, Brian Mabus, and Kyle Kissinger.

Roadrunner heats were won by Brian Johnson and Keith Bissinger.

Saturday night’s racing program was sponsored by Selinsgrove Ford.

Next Saturday, Aug. 19, Selinsgrove Speedway will offer racing from the 360 Sprint Cars, 305 Sprint Cars, Pro Stocks, and the rescheduled Collier Paving and Construction Roadrunner 20. The Penn Mar Vintage Race Cars will also be on hand.

ALL STAR SPRINTS SET FOR JUSTIN SNYDER SALUTE TO THE TROOPS AT SUSQUEHANNA
By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA 8/11/17

Late last fall, Tony Stewart’s Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions announced it would make its first ever appearance at Susquehanna Speedway during the 2017 season.

And that date is just a week away when the traveling series invades the York Haven oval to do battle with the Pennsylvania Posse in the Justin Snyder Salute to the Troops race on Sunday night, August 20.

The race will also serve as the fifth race in the BAPS Coatings and Supplies 410 Sprint Series, where four different winners have visited victory lane in the first four events this season.

Point leader Chad Kemenah will lead the All Stars into Central Pennsylvania along with a contingent of other drivers that will face stiff challenges from the Posse on the racy red clay oval.

The race is run in honor of Justin Snyder, who was a huge race fan and proud retired combat veteran of the U.S. Army. Snyder lost his life in April 2016.

The All Star main will pay $5,000 to win with $500 going to the driver who sets fast time during time trials courtesy of Emory Transmissions. Brown & Miller Racing Solutions will offer a $200 award for the Hard Charger in the main event.

Prior to the season, BAPS announced a unique bonus award for the 410 Sprint Series that will reward three different drivers that support all seven events in 2017. Heading into the fifth event, ten drivers remain on the bonus eligibility list that include 2017 winners Greg Hodnett and Lucas Wolfe as well as Brock Zearfoss, Aaron Ott, Brian Montieth, Kyle Moody, Anthony Macri, Glenndon Forsythe, Kyle Reinhart and Bradley Howard. At the end of the year, $1,000 will go to three drivers for their season-long support of the series.

The Freedmont® Mortgage PASS/IMCA Sprints will join the BAPS 410 Sprints series on the Sunday night racing card.

Pit Gates open at 4:30PM, Grandstands at 5PM with Hot Laps on the track at 6:15PM and time trials beginning at 7PM.

Admission for the All Star Justin Snyder Salute to the Troops will be $20 for Adults, $15 for Seniors and Students with Kids 12 and Under admitted Free. Pit admission will be $35.

LEVAN MACHINE & TRUCK EQUIPMENT PRESENT SMOKE ON THE HILL AT GRANDVIEW THURSDAY, AUGUST 17

RYAN SMITH STILL SEARCHING FOR FIRST THUNDER ON THE HILL WIN, JOINED BY TONY STEWART & RICO ABREU

BECTHELSVILLE, PA (August 8, 2017) – The old saying goes ‘there are plenty of fish in the sea’ – but for 29-year-old 410 Sprint Car ace, Ryan Smith, Grandview Speedway is the one that continues to get away.

Smith’s next shot comes on Thursday, August 17 when NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series presents Tony Stewart’s Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions 410 Sprint Cars at Grandview Speedway. The nationally touring series will join Grandview’s popular Sportsman division for a full night of racing excitement at the 3rd Annual Thunder Cup presented by Levan Machine and Equipment.

“We got lucky, Ryan Smith had a better car than I did,” Speedweek event winner and NASCAR driver Kyle Larson explained in victory lane. Larson dominated the early part of Speedweek competition, but it was Smith who stole the lead – much to the delight of the jam-packed Grandview Speedway – before clipping the outside wall and violently flipping into turn 3.

The PA Speedweek event marked the third consecutive NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill event that saw Smith suffer misfortune while leading.

“The Kunkletown Kid” comes back into Grandview Speedway stronger than ever. He currently sits second in the Arctic Cat All-Star Circuit of Champions series standings and is fresh off a victory at the All Stars event at New York’s Outlaw Speedway.

The best-of-the-best of competition will be on hand on Thursday, August 17 with drivers like Greg Hodnett, Danny Dietrich, Lucas Wolfe, Dale Blaney and Freddie Rahmer – all winners at area race tracks this season; along with All Star standouts Chad Kemenah, Tim Shaffer, Cole Duncan, and Carson Macedo all expected to be on hand; throw in one of the nation’s most popular drivers with Rutherford, CA’s Rico Abreu and action from three-time NASCAR Champion Tony Stewart – and you have one of the strongest fields of the All-Star season.

Grandview’s popular Sportsman division joins the card with a 25-Lap, $1,300-to-win event that will entice racers from all over the region. Some of the pre-entries include Brad Grim, Matt Stangle, Craig Whitmoyer, Mike Lisowski, Kenny Gilmore, Brian Hirthler, TJ Lilly, Brad Arnold and Ken Eckert Jr just to name a few.

Time Trials for the 410 Sprint Cars will open the show on Thursday, August 17 at 7:30 PM. The pit gates will open at 2:30 PM and the Grandstands will open at 5:00 PM. Fans can get up-close to the drivers and their mighty machines with the Low Down and Dirty Meet and Greet kicking off at 5:00 PM.

General Admission Adult tickets are $30, Children ages 6-11 are $10, and Kids under 6 are Free of charge! Pit admission is $35, and no license is required.

Advance tickets are available until Wednesday, August 16 by calling 443-513-4456. Please provide your name, phone number and the number of tickets you will need. Tickets may be paid for and picked up on race night at the Will-Call window after 4 PM. Advance ticket holders may enter the grandstands at 4:30 PM, 30 minutes before the opening of the box office.

SATURDAY, AUGUST 5, 2017 SUSQUEHANNA SPEEDWAY RACE RESULTS

SCOTT DELLINGER RACES TO SECOND SUSQUEHANNA WIN Weaver and Merkel Double Late Model Winners; Geesaman Gets Street Stock Win By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA…8/5/17 Scott Dellinger held off several late race challenges from Russ Mitten to capture his second win of the season in the 25-lap Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman feature Saturday night at Susquehanna Speedway.

Sean Merkel and Justin Weaver both recorded first career Susquehanna wins in the double Bernheisel Race Cars 358 Late Model features while Jasen Geesaman raced to his first win of the season in Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stock action.

Gregg Foster shot from his fifth starting spot to take command of the Super Sportsman feature with one lap complete.

While Foster checked out from the field, Davey Walsh, eighth starting Dellinger and seventh starting Mitten were working their way to the front.

Foster’s bid for a win ended when his car went up in smoke to bring out the caution with ten laps complete.

Walsh would lead the next lap but it was Dellinger pushing his Dellinger Auto Body, Reesers Soft Serve Ice Cream, AAI Recycling, G.A. Smith Towing No. 30 past Walsh to lead lap 12.

While Dellinger began to stretch his lead, Walsh, Mitten, Mike Enders and 13th starter Jay Fannasy were in a heated battle for top five spots.

A caution on lap 18 for a spin by Nate Young set up another battle for the lead as Mitten hung tough with Dellinger for several laps before Dellinger would drive off only to see a caution wave on the final lap for a spin by Justin Williams.

Dellinger, of Lewisberry was up to the challenge on the restart keeping Mitten at bay to pick up his fourth career Susquehanna win and moved to within 95 points of Kenny Edkin for the point lead.

Mitten held on for second with 12th starter and last week’s winner Tony Jackson coming home third ahead of Enders and Fannasy with Miller racing back to sixth over Frankie Herr, Rich Eichelberger, Walsh and Edkin, who was driving the Russ Lebo owned car after his own No. 75 suffered mechanical issues during his heat race.

Miller earned the Artwerks Hard Charger award after starting 21st.

Heats for the 22 Sportsman were won by Timmie Barrick, Tom Wyckoff and Foster.

Williamsport, MD driver Justin Weaver invaded Susquehanna for Bernheisel Race Cars 358 Late Model competition and left with his first career win after winning the regularly scheduled 25 lap feature.

Weaver started fifth and took control on lap nine and drove away from the field to become the eighth different winner this season.
