All Stars Return To Williams Grove Friday

358 lates also in action

4/19/15

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Wolfe Claims Port Royal All Star Weikert Tune Up

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Heats went to Brenneman and Bernheisel.

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

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

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

Heats went to Erin Statler, Ellerman and Newlin.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Paul Miller wins first sportsman show of Grove season

4/17/15

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Heats went to Geesey, Mitten and Miller.

April 17, 2015 Feature Finishes:

410 sprints, 25 laps: 1. Stevie Smith, 2. Greg Hodnett, 3. Aaron Ott, 4. Alan Krimes, 5. Lucas Wolfe, 6. Lance Dewease, 7. Cory Haas, 8. Mark Smith, 9. Steve Buckwalter, 10. Pat Cannon, 11.

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

Eric Irvin wins first in econo lates

4/5/15

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Heats went to Heimbach, TJ Stutts and Mike Wagner.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Heats went to Yoder, Parks and Lupfer.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Westhafer And Shaffer Win In Williams Grove Sprints

4/10/15

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Heats went to Don Kreitz Jr. and Wolfe.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Heats went to Fisher, Lehman and Shaffer.

Food Challenge Event to Morgan Cup Weekend for National Open Benefit

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

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

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

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

Benner is equally excitied.

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

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

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

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

The NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series will present season twenty-six at the Grandview Speedway in 2015 and it all gets underway on Sunday night, May 24 with the Grandview Thunder 5-25’s. This feature only program is a fan favorite and will showcase the 358 NASCAR Modifieds, ARDC Non-Wing Midgets, TSRS Sprint Cars, Sportsman and Legend cars. Five divisions, five twenty-lap features all for an adult admission price of $20

Thunder on the Hill has developed a reputation of presenting unique and different racing events that incorporate different divisions of dirt track racing from near and far. Thunder on the Hill is anything but, the same old thing. The coming season will be no different!

The Sunday, May 24 Grandview Thunder 5-25’s will mark the 115th Thunder event, since the series started way back in August of 1990.

This “rub rails and rooster tails” show is always a crowd pleasing event as the USAC stars are not afraid of the Grandview Speedway outside boiler-plate. If you have not seen a USAC show at Grandview, it’s a show you will want to see.

The third Thunder event will showcase the return of the DIRTCar Modifieds joined by a complete show of the Grandview 358 Modifieds making up the 18th Annual Traffic Jam on Tuesday night, June 16. This is a first time ever presentation of these two premier divisions coming together on the “hill”. The DIRTCar Modifies will battle 60 laps for $6,000 to win as the 358 Modified chase a $3,000 payday in a 30 lap feature. It’s a Double Down for Modifieds Night with an added $1,000 Bonus from Pioneer Pole Buildings for any driver who can Double Down and with both features. It’s a possible $10,000 payday if one driver wins both feature events.

Always a popular show is the Pennsylvania Sprint Speed Week Series when the 410 Sprints and the Modifieds team up on Tuesday night, June 30.

The 410 Sprints will return in the THUNDER CUP for the 410 sprints joined by the 358 Modifieds on Tuesday night, July 28.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

MONTIETH BLOWS AWAY FIELD IN LINCOLN 410 SPRINT SPRING CHAMPIONSHIP

Rittenhouse claims season opener for 358 sprints

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Ott, Lupfer And Gramley Open Port Royal Season With Wins

4/4/15

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Heats went to Wolfe, Ely and Snyder.

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

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

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

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

Heats went to Yoder and Kann.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Heats went to Ellerman and Gramley.

BRIAN MONTIETH BLASTS TO THRILLING SUNDAY NIGHT WIN

Chad Criswell Scores Sportsman Win and Bob Stough Tops Legends

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

3/27/15

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Heats for 17 cars in action went to Dickson and Eckert.

Port Royal Speedway

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

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

Starting Times April 4 & 11 Moved To 5 PM

3/26/15

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

April 4 will be Easter Night at the speedway with the first 200 youth entering the main grandstand receiving a free chocolate Easter rabbit. In addition, a youth egg scramble will be held in the infield just prior to the heat races.

Also at the opener, the first 600 fans entering the main grandstand will receive a free 2015 schedule magnet courtesy of Juniata Beverage.

The 410 sprint winner’s share for the opener is $3,600 including $100 of which is posted in honor of late speedway champion Richard “Dick” “Pete” Swarmer as posted by his son Steve.

The super late models will compete for $2,000 to win in the opener.

Williams Grove Opens with 410 Sprints And Super Late Models March 27

3/22/15

Mechanicsburg –Williams Grove Speedway will open the 2015 racing season this Friday night, March 27 at 7:30 pm with a good old fashioned Williams Grove twinbill of Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprints and super late models.

Fireworks will help bring in the season of professional, local dirt track auto racing at Williams Grove.

Full programs of heat races and features for each division is on the agenda with the 410 sprints racing for $3,600 to win.

Adult general admission for the prestigious season opener is set at just $15 with youth ages 12 – 20 admitted for just $10.

The Williams Grove portion of the 50/50 drawing on the night will be donated to Wounded Warriors.

Last year, Gerard McIntyre Jr. held off the furious charges of Stevie Smith and Brian Montieth to win the 2014 season opener for the 410 sprints on March 28.

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

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

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

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

Since the dawning of the decade in 2010, opening day winners at Williams Grove have been: Fred Rahmer, 2010 and 2013; Stevie Smith, 2011; and Danny Dietirch, 2012.

Greg Hodnett, the defending Williams Grove track champion, has a pair of opening day victories to his credit at the track, coming back in 2002 and in 2004 and in fact the Thomasville speedster has already won in the area this season.

Williams Grove Speedway will return to action on April 3 at 7:30 pm with a program of 410 sprints and super sportsman.

The kickoff of the 2015 Saturday Night Series featuring the super sportsman is slated for Saturday, May 2.

FRED RAHMER BRINGS 410 SPRINT CAR RACING BACK TO PATH VALLEY SPEEDWAY FOR AN EXCITING THREE RACE SERIES

SPRING RUN, PA (March 15, 2015) – After an inaugural 2014 Pennsylvania Sprint Car Speed Week event that boasted a standing-room-only crowd and an equally impressive car count, Fred Rahmer Promotions returns to Spring Run, PA’s Path Valley Speedway, for an expanded three event series featuring 410 Sprint Cars and 600cc Micro Sprints.

With a $5,000 top prize up for grabs -- plus additional driver incentives and bonuses -- you can expect the area's best Sprint Car racers to be on hand when the first event of the 2015 season kicks off on Sunday, April 26.

The 25th running of Pennsylvania Sprint Car Speed Week stops at the Path Valley Speedway on Sunday, June 28 with the 410 Sprint Cars and 600cc Micro Sprints co-headlining the popular event. Close to the heart of Rahmer -- who holds 30 PA Speed Week victories and 13 PA Speed Week Championships -- this event will prove to be nothing short of spectacular.

The final event of the Fred Rahmer Promotions season takes place on Saturday, October 17. Along with a regular program of 410 Sprint Cars and 600cc Micro Sprints, a special “Fans Choice Feature” will take place where the winner will take home an additional $6,000 top prize. Drivers must compete in all three Fred Rahmer Promotion events to be eligible for the “Fans Choice Feature.”

Each event will follow a traditional Pennsylvania Speed Week event format and rules. Drivers will participate in time trials, in which a blind draw will determine the time trial order, followed by qualifying heat races and a B-Main event. The A-Main will be lined up by time trials with an inversion of four, six or eight.

While the racing will be hot and heavy on the 1/4-mile bullring, off-track accommodations have been greatly improved from the previous season. Rahmer, along with Perkasie, PA's Tru-Line Contractors, has spent much of the winter constructing new grandstands that include pit access and additional restrooms.

Steve Post, Motor Racing Network's NASCAR Pit Reporter and co-host of the popular Winged Nation radio program, will once again provide the call of the night's racing action with his ever entertaining play-by-play announcing, including various fan giveaways and prizes.

One of the more interesting incentives for the 600cc Micro Sprint competitors is the opportunity to win a test session aboard one of the Fred Rahmer-owned 410 Sprint Cars. Two opportunities will be available, one to the winner of the series Points Champion, and the second to a random driver who has participated in all three events in the series.

Registration is limited for the 600cc Micro Sprints. Drivers are encouraged to download the registration form on www.fredrahmerpromotions.com

It all starts on Sunday, April 26 with pit gates opening at 12:00 noon, grandstand gates opening at 2:00 PM, and hot laps beginning at 6:00 PM with time trials immediately following.

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

Series sponsors include: Tru-Line Contracting, Buck Rubs Gentlemen's Club, C&B Mushrooms, Aran Trading, and Miller Brother's Chevrolet.

GREG HODNETT SCORES LINCOLN SPEEDWAY ICEBREAKER 30 SEASON OPENER Mar 15, 2015, 21:47 Email this article Printer friendly page

Hodnett Takes Home $4,000 payday in 2015 Season-Opener

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 3/15/2015 – After being forced to cancel its first three scheduled races of the 2015 racing season due to snow and cold weather, Lincoln Speedway officially kicked off the racing season Sunday afternoon, March 15th, with Greg Hodnett surviving a marathon Icebreaker 30 feature event to add his name to opening day winners at the Pigeon Hills oval.

Using the Sunday rain date after a Saturday rainout, a large crowd of fans came out to watch the 410 Sprinters in action as Hodnett missed several early crashes and held on to score the win in the 30 lap feature that took well over an hour to complete.

“I was just in survival mode,” stated the Spring Grove driver after earning $4,000 for his 28th career Lincoln Speedway feature win. “The track was very tricky, obviously due to circumstances…but the guys did a great job with the car.”

“They freed up it and I knew I was going to be free pretty much the whole race but that was the only way that I figured we could make any headway so it worked out for us.”

Hodnett’s win moved him into a tie with Van May for 10th place on Lincoln Speedway’s all-time track win list.

The first feature of 2015 took four starts to get an official lap in the books.

Niki Young flipped in turn one on the initial green flag. A second red flag came on the ensuing restart when front row starters Freddie Rahmer and Chase Dietz tangled on the frontstrech. Last year’s opening day winner Adam Wilt was also caught up in the crash.

Tim Glatfelter brought out the red flag on the third restart, flipping on the front stretch after contact with Chris Knopp and Scott Fisher.

Billy Dietrich finally grabbed the top spot when the first lap was scored, but, a yellow for Brian Montieth, who sat sideways off turn two slowed action with three laps complete.

Billy Dietrich continued to set the pace over Hodnett, who originally started sixth on the grid when another yellow for Rahmer slowed the pace once again after seven laps were scored.

Hodnett shot under Billy Dietrich entering turn one on the restart, emerging as the race leader before Aaron Ott hit the wall in turn two resulting in a fuel stop.

Billy Dietrich rolled to a stop on the restart as Hodnett continued to set the pace when another yellow flag appeared with 12 laps down for a stopped Fisher in turn four.

Montieth spun on the restart bringing out the final caution of the day.

The final 18 laps went non-stop as Hodnett drove the Mike Heffner owned, Lelands.com, Trone Outdoor, Eagle Steel No. 27 sprinter away from the field.

Hodnett was slowed up late in the event when he caught the rear of the field but maintained a near straightaway advantage when he crossed under the checkered flag to officially score the first win in Central Pennsylvania this season.

“The 51 (Rahmer) and 44 (Dietz) were kind of bouncing around jockeying for position even before we took off so it was inevitable to happen because it’s a pretty narrow race track down here on the front straightaway…unfortunately those guys got tied up in it and it worked out for us and moved us up a row,” said Hodnett. “It wasn’t the raciest I’ve ever been but we just kind of bided our time and made sure we didn’t do anything stupid to take ourselves out of contention.”

“Everyone that helps on this car did a nice job and I’m just fortunate to be standing here. Normally here I’m just not that good here. We just lucked out. Hopefully it’s not a bad omen because sometimes when you win early in the year, you get to struggling in the middle and end of the year. Hopefully that doesn’t happen and we can keep this thing going.”

Kyle Moody raced home in the runner-up spot ahead of Robbie Kendall, Brent Marks and 20th starting Cory Haas with defending track champion Alan Krimes sixth ahead of Montieth, Gerard McIntyre, Jr., Danny Dietrich and Cole Duncan.

Heat races for the 30 410 Sprints pitside were won by Mike Bittinger, Chris Knopp and Bill Dietrich. Last year’s opening day winner Adam Wilt won the consolation.

Lincoln Speedway will switch to night racing next Saturday, March 21st, with a 410 Sprint and 358 late model doubleheader. Race time will be 6 PM, with gates opening at 4 PM.

Port Royal Speedway

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

Port Royal Cancels March 20/21 Weekend

3/15/15

Port Royal – Port Royal Speedway has been forced to cancel its already pushed back season opening weekend slated for March 20 and 21.

Continued rock-hard frozen ground and extremely poor grounds and track surface conditions have made the cancellation of the Friday practice session and Saturday opener a necessity.

“It’s clear as we are now a week away from what we had hoped to be the opener that there is just no way we can even think about using the grounds or track in a week,” Port Royal Promoter Steve O’Neal said.

This means the season opener is now slated for Saturday evening, March 28 at 6 pm when the 410 sprints, super late models and the Gray’s Auto & Towing 355-econo late models are again on the schedule.

March 28 will also be Camera & Autograph Night at the track when the purchase of a general admission ticket will gain fans access to the pit area for a limited time prior to warm ups.

The 410 sprint winner’s share for the opener recently increased from $3,500 to $3,600 in honor of late speedway champion Richard “Dick” “Pete” Swarmer.

Swarmer’s son Steve, a former competitor himself, has posted the $100 increase in honor of the elder Swarmer’s opening day victory some 50 years ago, in 1965.

The super late models will also compete for an increased payday in the opener, set at $2,000 to win.

Adult general admission for the show will be $15 with students ages 12 – 18 admitted for just $7.

General admission gates will open at 4 pm.

The possibility of a practice session at the track is being evaluated for the week of March 30 with an announcement regarding a date and time in the offing.

Season seats and passes remain on sale at the speedway office as well. Office hours are held Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays with times available on the oval’s website.

TRAIL-WAY, “MOTORAMA” FOUNDER ARMIN H. HOSTETTER LEAVES LEGACY AFTER PASSING AT THE AGE OF 87

The Central Pennsylvania racing community lost an icon of the sport with the passing of Armin H. Hostetter at the age of 87 on Thursday, January 29th.

Best known as the founder of Trail-Way Speedway and the famous annual “Motorama” show in Harrisburg, Armin actually grew up as a multisport athlete that excelled in every sport.

As a baseball player, he was good enough to try out for the Pittsburgh Pirates. As a football player, he played semi-pro football with the York White Rose and Chambersburg Cardinals.

Despite his accomplishments in other sports, it was the motorcycles on the family farm that Armin loved the most. Following the footsteps of his two brothers, Armin took up motorcycle racing; He competed at such well-known tracks as Williams Grove and Langhorne, but among his career highlights was racing for the Norton factory on the beach at the Daytona 200.

His short racing career brought him back to the family farm just outside McSherrystown, which he bought from his parents and established a club for people who had their own off-road motorcycles. He built some tracks to give the club members a place to ride.

Originally cut out for sulky horse racing, one track was later made bigger for cycles and cars. It became what is now known as Trail-Way Speedway, which first starting racing programs in 1971.

There were weekly shows of A.M.A. motorcycle flat track and motocross racing. As the years progressed, Armin also promoted races ranging from go-karts and midgets to late models and 410 sprint cars. In recent years, Trail-Way has hosted the 358 sprint cars as its main division, along with regular appearances by 358 late models, three different divisions of micro-sprints, classic cars, limited stocks, and, of course, A.M.A. flat track racing.

The list of drivers who have learned to race at Trail-Way is a “Who’s Who” of eastern dirt track racing. In the sprint car division alone, Brad McClelland and rising stars Brent Marks, Danny Dietrich, Chad Criswell, Logan Schuchart, and Kyle Moody cut their racing teeth at Trail-Way. The careers of the late Kevin Gobrecht and Lucas Wolfe began at the track on “the farm.”

As if farming 500 acres and weekend racing wasn’t enough, Armin also founded the “Motorama,” now held every February at the Pennsylvania Farm Show complex. The event was first held in 1978, and has become one of the largest shows of its kind in the East. The show fills the entire one-million square feet of the complex with live indoor racing and several rooms of automotive show entertainment. The indoor racing, headlined by Arenacross, has become a “must see” event for racing fans.

Despite turning the bulk of promotional duties over to his sons Barry, Brad, and Perry in recent years, Armin remained active at the speedway until the time of his death. He especially enjoyed greeting people from the front porch of his house (located beside the pit entrance) as they arrived at the speedway.

Armin’s many accomplishments were recognized with induction into the York County Racing Club Hall of Fame in 2010.

But Armin’s accomplishments didn’t end there. He also organized the York Adams Elementary Football League (serving as its president and historian), was a past president of the Rotary Club International of Hanover, and served on the Littlestown School Board. Other community involvement included lifetime membership of the Hanover Church of the Brethren and membership in the McSherrystown Fish and Game and the Benevolent and Protective Order of the Elks.

Armin was the loving husband of Frances (Barnes) Hostetter, who passed in 1995, and is survived by companion Fern Hess; sons Barry (and wife Ella), Bradley (and his wife Cindy), and Perry

(and companion Mary Rickrode), all of Hanover; five grandchildren; and five great-grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his seven brothers and sisters.

Memorial contributions may be made to the York County Racing Club Injured Drivers Fund, 568 Yale Street, York, PA 17403; or to the York Adams Elementary Football League (Y.A.E.F.L.), P.O. Box 1254, Hanover, PA 17331.

Those who “believe” know that Armin Hostetter will continue to oversee the operation of “the farm.” He was laid to rest at Hostetter’s Meeting House Church Cemetery, located adjacent to the Hostetter farm and within sight of his beloved Trail-Way Speedway.

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 2/8/13 – Only a two-inch coating of snow stands between Lincoln and opening day on Saturday afternoon, February 21st.

The “Icebreaker 30" for 410 Sprint Cars will kick off the 2015 outdoor racing season in the Northeast, and pay $4,000 to win. Action begins at 2:00 p.m., with gates opening at noon.

In fact, the “Icebreaker 30” is the first in a “Four for Four” series to open the season, with the first four Lincoln shows going 30 laps and paying $4,000 to win. All four programs begin at 2:00 p.m.

Celebrating its 63rd year, Lincoln Speedway continues a tradition of offering the world’s toughest, most competitive Saturday night sprint car racing. Super sprints have comprised the main class of racing at Lincoln Speedway since 1965, and the “410” sprints are featured in 29 of Lincoln's 35 race dates this year.

Exciting racing has become the trademark of Lincoln’s other “regular” division--the “358” sprint cars, which will be in action 19 times in 2015.

The super sportsman will make five appearances in the Pigeon Hills, culminating with the prestigious “Lawrence Chevrolet Sportsman 100” on Saturday, September 19th. The popular Central Pennsylvania Legends will make 11 stops in the Pigeon Hills this season. And the 358 late models will make three stops at Lincoln as part of a nine-race Trail-Way/Lincoln point series sponsored by Precise Racing Products.

Schedule Provides Most Variety in Speedway’s 60+ Year History

Newberrytown, PA (January 7, 2015) – Entering the 12th year of ownership under Todd and Rhonda Fisher, the 2015 season opener at the Susquehanna Speedway Park will be on Saturday, April 4, with the Late Models, Street Stocks, Super Sportsman and Legends Cars. The pit gates will open at 3:30 p.m. for the season opener. Grandstand gates will open at 4:00 p.m. Warm-ups begin at 5:30 p.m. with qualifying races at 6:00 p.m. followed by consolation races and feature events.

Now in its seventh decade of operation, the 4/10 mile Newberrytown oval, sees its most diverse schedule ever since its opening in May, 1954. Many popular events return along with a few exciting additions.

SSP will begin its pre-season with four open practice sessions for any type of racecar on Saturday, March 21; Wednesday, March 25; Saturday, March 28 and Wednesday, April 1. The gates will open at 5:00 p.m. with practice sessions rotating for each class from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. During the season, SSP will also host sixteen more Wednesday Night Test & Tune Sessions through Wednesday, October 28.

Fuel pumps will only be open for the first two Saturday Test & Tunes of the season,

Last season, Dover’s J.R. Rodriguez claimed his first SSP track championship over Randy Christine Jr. Rodriguez had four feature victories and 15 Top 10 finishes in 2014 as Christine claimed five wins and 14 Top 10 finishes. Track championships are based on classes with a minimum of three races per season.

The final leg of the USAC Eastern Storm championship featuring the National USAC Non-Wing Sprint Cars will be on Sunday, June 7.

Once a month, the 410 Sprint Cars will be featured from April through October on selected Sunday nights. On Sunday night, April 12, the Super Sprint Cars will return to SSP for the 6th Annual Sprint Car Spring Classic. They 410 cubic inch powered cars will be joined by the 358 Sprint Cars that currently compete at Williams Grove, Lincoln and Trailways Speedway. The pit gates will open 3:30 p.m. Grandstand gates will open at 4:00 p.m. Warm-ups begin at 5:30 p.m. with qualifying races at 6:00 p.m. followed by consolation races and feature events.

The 6th Annual Final Showdown pays $10,000 to the 410 Sprint Car winner on Saturday, November 14.

The 358/360 Sprint Car Challenge races will partner with the 410 Sprints on the four remaining Sunday shows on May 3; July 19; September 20 and October 18. Track champions will be declared for the 410 Sprint Cars, 358 Sprint Cars and the 358/360 Sprint Cars separately.

For the second year, the Jr. Road Warrior class for all drivers ages 14 to 18 years of ages will join the Mini Vans in a feature only event. This will allow younger drivers to develop their talents without competing against veterans in the division.

The SSP Outback Track will open with a Test & Tune on Friday night, April 10. The first event of the

Spring Shoot-Out Series on the 1/9 mile oval will be Friday, April 17. The 10 race Spring Series ends on Friday, June 19. The 10-race Summer Shoot-Out Series runs from Friday, June 26 to Friday, September 24.

Each division of Quarter Midgets, Karts and adult Speedcars will have two features (with only one entry fee). There will be no heat races. The first 15-lap feature will be lined up by a blind draw. The second 15-lap feature starting lineup will be an inversion of all the cars on the lead lap with lapped cars and cars that did not finish starting behind the cars on the lead lap.

The second type of special night will be “Track Records Night” on May 22 and August 7. At “Track Records Night,” each competitor will have a chance to break the existing one-lap track record for their class at the Outback Track. Time trials (3 laps per competitor) will replace heat racing for the night. Drivers will have the chance to put their name in the record book as the one-lap record holder for their class. Qualifying times will also be used to determine the feature starting lineup (Inversion of top 4 times).

The Susquehanna Speedway Park is located off I-83 to exit 32, then 1.4 miles NW on SR382 to York Road, then 1.3 miles south.

Dirt Classic Announces 2015 Schedule and Payout Increases Advanced Tickets available at DirtClassic.com

Abbottstown, PA (December 16, 2014) – After a stunningly successful event in 2014, it should come as no surprise that The Dirt Classic will be returning to Lincoln Speedway in 2015. The marquee event has been scheduled for Saturday, September 26, 2015 with a rain date of Sunday, September 27th.

“The success of the inaugural Dirt Classic had quite a bit to do with Alan Kreitzer and the entire Lincoln Speedway team,” Jarrod Adams said. “That’s why we’re really excited to return to Lincoln in 2015, and announce some exciting improvements to the event.”

The Dirt Classic team, including Jarrod Adams of Adams Investing, and Alan Kreitzer, Don Leiby and Bob Leiby of Lincoln Speedway, have also announced an exciting change for 2015: a single qualifier event at Lincoln Speedway on June 6, 2015 with an increased payout from 2014 qualifiers.

In addition to adding extending The Dirt Classic’s event schedule into June, the team has also announced an increase in the payout for 2015. The event will continue to pay $20,000 to the winner, with an increase being distributed throughout the field.

“When we started this event we had a plan to bump the payout up each year,” Adams said. “We’re happy to announce that it makes sense for us to do that in 2015 and continue with our mission to invest in the future of sprint car racing in Pennsylvania.”

Further details about The Dirt Classic and The Dirt Classic Qualifier will be released at a later date.

Advanced tickets are now available for purchase at DirtClassic.com. In addition to saving $5.00 by purchasing advanced tickets, The Dirt Classic is offering fee-free order processing on General Admission ticket purchases in 2015.

About The Dirt Classic: The Dirt Classic is a marquee 410 sprint car event held annually in Central Pennsylvania. The second annual $20,000-to-win race, held on Saturday, September 26th at Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, PA, boasts the largest single-race payout in the track’s legendary history. The race was won by Steve Smith in 2014. An additional Qualifier race will be held at Lincoln Speedway on June 6, 2015.

Ironically, Krimes’ wins came back-to-back with an ARCH Night win on April 12th and a 410 Sprint Spring Championship victory on April 19th. Although he didn’t win the rest of the year, he did score ten top-five and 16 top-ten finishes in 23 races to claim the $10,000 championship. Krimes’ two wins in the John Alexander’s Midnight Express/Conestoga Valley Garage #87 moved him alongside Junie Taylor and Bobby Weaver on the all-time Lincoln win list with 15 career wins.

Selinsgrove Speedway Promoter Charlie Paige Honored As World of Outlaws Late Model Series 2014 Promoter of the Year

CONCORD, N.C. - Nov. 18, 2014 - In his 14 years at the helm of Selinsgrove Speedway, Charlie Paige has helped elevate the historic half-mile dirt track to one of Pennsylvania's premier race facilities and has brought the track national spotlight by hosting the World of Outlaws Late Model Series.

Paige's commitment and hard work at the 68-year-old race track earned him national recognition this season as the recipient of the WoO LMS Promoter of the Year Award. Paige, 59, of Selinsgrove, was announced as the winner of this year's award at the annual World of Outlaws Night of Champions awards banquet on Nov. 9 at the Great Wolf Lodge in Concord, N.C.

Paige was unable to attend the banquet to accept the award in person, but when informed of his honor, he was quick to recognize the Selinsgrove Speedway staff, officials and sponsors for their help in the success of the track.

"It's very honoring," said Paige, who enters his 15th season as promoter of the fairgrounds oval in 2015. "I'm a behind the scenes type of guy. I'm just humbled to be a part of this and to have such a great racing series come to our track. To be honest, it's really easy to do the job that I'm doing because I have such a great staff and great sponsors. It's a team effort to keep a track running and I know our team is really good at it."

A lifelong resident of the Selinsgrove area, Paige has worked at Selinsgrove Speedway for more than 35 years. He took over as promoter at the track in 2001 and has steadily improved the track and its facility during his time in charge.

Paige drew national attention to the speedway in 2012 when he scheduled the track's first-ever WoO LMS event. The race was unfortunately rained out, but Paige was undeterred. Selinsgrove not only returned to the tour's schedule for 2013 but also added a second event as part of a blockbuster Labor Day weekend doubleheader featuring the Showdown On Sand Hill and the National Late Model Open Presented by Jeff's Auto Body & Recycling Center.

Poor weather again threatened Selinsgrove's WoO LMS debut in 2012 with forecasts calling for more than a 60 percent chance of rain on both race nights. But Paige and his staff stuck with their plans and successfully ran both programs as storms held off just long enough for both race nights to be completed.

The WoO LMS again visited Selinsgrove for a pair of races over Labor Day weekend this season, and again the event faced unfavorable weather forecasts. Despite persistent rain on the morning of Selinsgrove's first event and threatening skies throughout the afternoon, Paige once again remained committed to completing the race and held out until the weather cleared for race time.

Paige's dedication to the speedway and commitment to completing a show is what led him to standout to WoO LMS officials in the process of determining the Promoter of the Year Award recipient.

"We are pleased to recognize Charlie Paige as our 2014 Promoter of the Year," said WoO LMS director Tim Christman. "Charlie and his staff are a pleasure to work with and he has shown an amazing commitment to putting on a great show for fans and providing a great racetrack for drivers.

"Charlie has unfortunately faced poor weather at his World of Outlaws events, but he has always done everything within his power to get the shows in. In situations where many track promoters would cancel a program, Charlie has pushed forward in the interest of fans, race teams and the series. Such an effort deserves recognition."

Paige cited his desire to make sure race teams get the most out of their travels and fans get to see the racing they were promised as his drive to do all he can to avoid canceling a race night.

"When you have a high-profile race like the World of Outlaws it just really wouldn't be good for the drivers or fans for a promoter to just pull the plug when it's convenient for him," Paige said. "You have the racers that drive rigs a lot of miles to come to race and your fans wait all year to see those big shows. If there's any way possible I think you have to try to get the race in for the fans and the drivers."

Selinsgrove Speedway will once again feature as part of the WoO LMS schedule in 2015 with the Showdown On Sand Hill and the National Late Model Open Presented by Jeff's Auto Body & Recycling Center once again making up a huge Labor Day weekend doubleheader.

"You always get excited in the offseason as you get ready to start the next season and get everything planned out," Paige said. "What I'm hoping for most in 2015 is finally getting good weather for the World of Outlaws weekend. We've had the World of Outlaws three years now and not one of them yet has been under 60 percent (chance of) rain. I hope Mother Nature can help us out this year so we can have an even better weekend."

Hodnett Passes Kreitz to Win $10,060 at the Final Showdown at SSP on Saturday

Newberrytown, PA (November 15, 2014) – The Final Showdown for the 410 Sprint Cars at the Susquehanna Speedway Park on Saturday afternoon, November 15 went to Greg Hodnett of Thomasville. The victory for Hodnett was worth $10,060, the highest paying race ever held at SSP in its 60-year history. York’s Chase Dietz took the 358 Sprint Car portion as well claiming the 20-lap feature event.

By virtue of qualifying sixth in time trials, Freddie Rahmer started in the pole position of the 30-lap 410 Sprint Car feature event. At the green, outside polesitter Don Kreitz Jr. grabbed the early lead. By lap 6, Kreitz entered lapped traffic as he set a blistering pace with Rahmer and Greg Hodnett following behind him. A caution flag just one lap past the halfway point closed up the field behind Kreitz. On the restart, Kreitz continued to protect the bottom side of the track. On the 17th circuit, Hodnett moved to the outside and drove by Kreitz coming off turn 2. Another caution with 5 laps to go gave Kreitz one more shot to regain the lead. However, Hodnett was flawless and went on to claim the 30-lap and the $10,060 first prize. Kreitz settled for second with Rahmer capturing the final podium spot in third. Lance Dewease ran strong in fourth with Ryan Smith rounding out the top five.

Heat race wins went to Daryn Pittman, Justin Barger and Danny Dietirch. Kyle Reinhart won the consolation event. Ryan Smith was the fast qualifier in time trials and broke the existing one-lap track record with a time of 14.256 seconds (0.125 seconds faster than the prior 10-year old track record held by Brian Leppo).

In the 20-lap 358 Sprint Car feature, Kody Lehman took the lead from the outside the front row. Fourth place starter Chase Dietz immediately challenged Lehman and took the top spot on lap 3. Lehman never gave up easily and stayed very close to Dietz over the entire race. Making an unsuccessful late race challenge for the lead, Lehman fell back to about five car lengths at the ned to finish second behind Dietz. Matt Campbell finished very strong in third. Brad McClelland and Doug Hammaker finished fourth and fifth places respectively. Qualifying heat race winners were Campbell, Kody Lehman and Chris Frank.

The Susquehanna Speedway Park is located midway between Harrisburg and York off I-83 to exit 32, then 1.4 miles NW on SR382 to York Road, then 1.3 miles south.

PRS 2014 – 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

Ryan Smith Beats Schatz For Port Royal Outlaws Loot, Climbs From Racer To Chants Of “Poss-E, Poss-E” In Thrilling Outlaws Port Season Finale!

10/25/14

Port Royal – It was a performance that the Pennsylvania Posse sprint car fans thundered in approval of and even the World of Outlaws faithful had to respect as Posse circuit driver Ryan Smith of Kunkletown beat the traveling STP World of Outlaws sprint cars at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night to claim his first ever oval and outlaws victory, worth $10,000.

Outlaws champion Donny Schatz of Minot, North Dakota, who by virtue of entering the night’s activities clinched the 2014 outlaws series title, chased Smith to the line at the finish.

Early in the night, 20-time outlaws champion Steve Kinser of Bloomington, Indiana, was presented a commemorative plaque for his unparalleled accomplishments in the sport and in recognition of his final race in Pennsylvania as a full time outlaws driver.

Retiring car owner Randy Lisi was also recognized with a plaque for his dedication to the speedway over the better part of two decades.

Only two circuits of the 30-lap World of Outlaws, Port Royal Speedway season finale feature had been put in the books when the races only caution flag regrouped the field.

Australian native Kerry Madsen started on the pole and beat Mechanicsburg’s Lucas Wolfe down the frontchute to take the lead at the start and it was Wolfe in second and fourth starter Smith in third when the yellow appeared for a stopped Brad Sweet in the third corner.

A double file restart with Madsen choosing the outside row for the new green found Wolfe aboard the Zemco No. 1 taking control with a strong move to complete the third circuit with third starter Schatz running fourth.

Just shy of the halfway point, on lap 11, Smith muscled by Madsen for second and set his sights on leader Wolfe and in virtually no time at all Smith was all over him for control.

Smith took the lead for the first time in the fourth turn of the 12th circuit but Wolfe surged ahead by a whisker in a side-by-side battle back to the line to be scored the official pacesetter.

Smith then regrouped with Madsen and Schatz lurking to take another run at the leader with 15 away and again the same moves saw him get control in the fourth corner only to have Wolfe nose into the lead at the line.

Two laps later, Smith was at it again, and again the same moves saw him take the lead and lose it to Wolfe back at the stripe by a nearly invisible margin of 14-one thousandths of a second.

But then Smith went out front for good aboard the Warko No. 94 with 12 laps to go, this time firmly grasping the lead as Schatz motored into second while closing Smith’s advantage as well.

Schatz and Smith roused the fans over the final five miles of the event as they raced within two to four car lengths back of one another for the majority of the time, especially during the last five laps.

Smith bought himself a little breathing room for about three circuits just after the ten-to-go point when he put a lapped car between himself and Schatz but as soon as Schatz was able to clear the lapped machine, he again zeroed directly in on Smith, running the bottom and middle grooves around the speedway.

A roar that could be heard throughout the Juniata Valley and Central Pennsylvania went up when Smith crossed under the checkered flag and the massive chants of “Poss-e, Poss-e,” went up as Smith climbed from his neon racer into the winner’s circle.

The fans rattled the historic oval with screams and roars of support and approval as Smith tried to conduct his victory lane interview.

He became the 178th driver to record a sprint car victory at Port Royal Speedway and he closed the Port Royal season as the 17th different 410 sprint winner at the oval in 2014.

Schatz crossed the line a very challenging second, just .655 seconds back of the winner.

Eighth starter Daryn Pittman of Owasso, Oklahoma, crossed the line third followed by Madsen and 10th starter Cody Darrah of Red Lion.

Sixth through 10th went to Wolfe, Mechanicsburg; 12th starter Brent Marks, Myerstown; Shane Stewart, Bixby, Oklahoma; Danny Dietrich, Gettysburg; and Paul McMahan, Nashville, Tennessee.

Smith’s win of and outlaws event at Port Royal tied the score at the track of the eight events contested by the outlaws at the track since it first hosted an outlaws event there in 1979.

Locals Lynn Paxton, Don Kreitz Jr., Doug Wolfgang and now Smith have scored four of the races while outlaws Danny Wood, Brad Furr, Jason Sides and Schatz have taken the other four.

Wolfe set fast time in qualifications for the 40-car field with a quick lap of 16.012 seconds.

Heats went to Smith, Ryan Taylor, McMahan and Steve Buckwalter.

Wolfe won the dash for the pole of the feature event and Kyle Reinhardt scored the B Main.

World Of Outlaws Invade Port Royal Speedway For Oval Finale This Saturday

Outlaws VS. Posse showdown begins at 5 pm October 25!

10/19/14

Port Royal – It has been a decade since the STP World of Outlaws Sprint cars last raced at the historic Port Royal Speedway. And now the wait is over!

The cars and stars of the World of Outlaws circuit will return to Port Royal Speedway this Saturday night, October 25 for a 5 pm showdown with the Pennsylvania Posse stars to close out the 2014 Port Royal Season.

Purely sprint car racing is on the agenda that climaxes with a $10,000 to win, 30-lap feature event.

Gates open at 3 pm for the races and beginning at the same time will be the Nittany Media Penn State Football Tailgate party in the speedway commercial building.

Nittany Media of Lewistown will be hosting the event complete with a pair of 8 x 8 projection screens to help get action started for the evening kickoff of the Penn State/Ohio State match up.

The tailgate will continue through the racing program and until the conclusion of the game if fans remain in attendance.

The World of Outlaws have contested a total of seven events at Port Royal Speedway over the years, staging their first in 1979 when local Lynn Paxton scored the victory aboard the Boops Special No. 1 over Sammy Swindell.

As his career was still on the rise, Don Kreitz Jr. trumped the outlaws in his No. 69 at Port Royal in 1986 over Doug Wolfgang.

Wolfgang came back with a win for Bob Weikert over the band in 1987 with Steve Kinser finishing second.

And then a 14-year hiatus for the series at the track took place before Oklahoma’s Danny Wood won in his No. 21 over Mark Kinser in 2001.

The year 2002 found Californian Brad Furr pilot his No. 2 to a victory ahead of Mark Kinser.

A pair of future outlaws series champions in the making; Jason Meyers took a win over Daryn Pittman in 2003.

And current outlaws powerhouse Donny Schatz scored the most recent outlaws show at the track in 2004 over Pittman.

Ticket sales are ongoing for the upcoming invasion by the STP World of Outlaws and with contingency plans put in place to protect from a loss of the program due to inclement weather, fans can purchase tickets with confidence.

Seat tickets for the highly anticipated return of the World of Outlaws to Port Royal Speedway can be purchased now at the World of Outlaws official website, located at www.worldofoutlaws.com/tickets.

Track Title Laurels Bestowed Upon Hodnett, Heffner & Nouse

10/18/14

Mechanicsburg – Cory Haas won the season finale 410 sprint car main as part of Fall Fest 2014 on Saturday night at Williams Grove Speedway while other winners in the features-only program were Rich Eichelberger, 358 sprints; Gregg Foster, super sportsman; and Ron Kline, 358 late models.

Following the racing program, track title laurels were handed out to the champion sprint car teams including Greg Hodnett and car owner Mike Heffner in the 410 division and Kevin Nouse in the 358 division.

The top teams in both divisions also received their trophies and point fund payoffs.

Special awards in the 410 sprint class went to: Austin Hogue, Rookie of the Year; Ryan Smith, Most Improved Driver; Ryan Hand, Mechanic of the Year; and Don Kreitz Jr., Sportsmanship.

Special awards in the 358 sprints class went to: Matt Campbell, Rookie of the Year; and Adrian Shaffer, Sportsmanship.

Haas and Brent Marks started on the front row of the 25-lap 410 sprint feature and Marks took the lead at the beginning over Haas and Ryan Smith.

In a race riddled with caution flags, Marks looked convincingly strong early before suddenly slowing and pulling pitside on the fourth circuit, giving way to Haas just before a yellow flag unfurled.

Under the caution period, Marks rejoined at the rear.

Smith made attempts to snare the lead on restarts on laps four, six and 12 but despite challenging when action restarted each time, Haas was clearly stronger as the field strung out after each restart, pulling away over Smith repeatedly.

Eighth starter Steve Buckwalter drove into the top five on the first lap but would give way to seventh starter Danny Dietrich for third with nine laps to go.

However that was as far as Dietrich would advance before the finish with Buckwalter riding home fourth followed by Brian Montiech.

Sixth through 10th went to Greg Hodnett, Lance Dewease, Alan Krimes, Don Kreitz Jr. and Gerard McIntyre Jr.

Buckwalter finished a strong fourth followed by

Polesitter Jay Galloway took the lead when action began in the 20-lap 358 sprint main but gave way to seventh starter Doug Hammaker on the 11th tour.

Hammaker appearead home free, headed for his second oval win of the season when as he drove toward the white flag, his car slowed around the inside of the track, allowing veteran Rich Eichelberger to drive into control.

Eichelberger had taken over second from Galloway with five laps to go and made good on his opportunity for the victory.

After starting 11th, Kevin Nouse finished second followed by Adrian Shaffer, final starter Jason Shultz and Galloway.

Sixth through 10th went to Chandler Leiby, Chris Arnold, Brie Hershey, DJ Montgomery and Matt Findley.

Bobby Hockenberry led the first two tours of the 20-lap super sportsman feature before sixth starter Gregg Foster used the outside groove to take command for a lead he would never relinquish to the end.

It was Foster’s second victory of the season at the track coming over Hockenberry, Chad Criswell, Scott Dellinger and Frankie Herr.

Sixth through 10th went to Russ Mitten, Rich Eichelberger, Tom Wyckoff, Steve Fannasy and Mike Enders.

Ron Kline wired the field from the pole to win the 20-lap 358 limited late model feature over Alan Sagi.

Sagi started 10th in the field and took second on the final lap from Travis Mease, who would finish third, followed by Randy Croop and Shaun Jones.

Sixth through 10th went to Sam Gallagher, Cam Zeigler, Zach Kauffman, Al Chaney and Chad Julius

PRS 2014 – 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

Will 2014 Be The Year King Steve Kinser Gets A Victory At Port Royal Speedway?

10/12/14

Port Royal – Could 2014 be the year that Steve Kinser gets a sprint car win at Port Royal Speedway?

Believe it or not, the 20-time World of Outlaws sprint car champion has never taken a victory at the historic oval but another chance is on the horizon coming up on October 25 when the STP World of Outlaws series invades the oval.

Racing is slated to get underway at 5 pm with gates opening at 3 pm.

Kinser turned 60 years old a few months ago and has put together a driving legacy that can be rivaled by no other however he has yet to notch a W at The Port.

In total the Bloomington, Ind., native owns 577 career World of Outlaws A Main wins at 142 different tracks and he wouldn’t mind making it 578 at 143 when the 30-lap, $10,000 to win outlaws show is spun off in two weeks.

Kinser does have a legacy at Port Royal during his driving career, finishing fourth in 1979, second in 1987, third in 2001, third in 2003 and fourth during the most recent WoO show at the track in 2004.

The undisputed King of the Outlaws announced his farewell tour last December and is nearly at the end of his final run through a season as a full-time WoO racer.

And as such, his Salute To The King 2014 campaign will bring him to Port Royal Speedway on October 25 along with a host of other outlaws drivers to battle the Pennsylvania Posse.

The Saturday, October 25 show at Port Royal Speedway will be Kinser’s last stand in the state of Pennsylvania as a full-time, card carrying World of Outlaws pilot and he will want to make good on his last chance at PA clay.

Ticket sales are ongoing for the upcoming invasion by the STP World of Outlaws and with contingency plans put in place to protect from a loss of the program due to inclement weather, fans can purchase tickets with confidence.

Seat tickets for the highly anticipated return of the World of Outlaws to Port Royal Speedway can be purchased now at the World of Outlaws official website, located at www.worldofoutlaws.com/tickets.

Reserve seating admission tickets, available in rows 7 – 19 of the aluminum grandstand, are set at $35 with adult general “day of” prices set at $30.

General admission prices for students ages 12 – 18 for the outlaws show will be just $20. Ages 0 – 11 will be admitted for free to general admission areas.

Rows 1 – 6 of the aluminum grandstand will be open to general admission ticket holders.

A reserved seat/ticket, in rows 7 – 19 if desired, for ages 0 – 11 and for students will be the aforementioned $35.

DIETRICH INHERITS LEAD, CLAIMS WIN IN LINCOLN 410 SPRINT CAR SEASON FINALE;

Dwight Leppo claims first Lincoln win in 358 sprints; Harlon Leppo wins for retiring cousin Brian in Central PA Legends;

Randy Doty takes All-American Outlaw main

10/11/2014, ABBOTTSTOWN, PA –Danny Dietrich found himself the leader when Brian Montieth and Glenndon Forsythe crashed into lapped cars on the fifth lap and held off repeated challenges of rookie Austin Hogue over the next 20 laps to score his fifth win of the year in the season finale at Lincoln Speedway on Saturday night.

“It was a crazy race,” said Dietrich after scoring his third win in the last four Lincoln races in the Sandoe’s Fruit Market/Hickory Run Orchards/Weikert’s Livestock #48, “My brakes were so hot from running so hard. My hat’s off to Austin. He drove a hell-of-a race and kept pressure on me the whole time. That’s impressive for a kid in his first year of 410 racing on a track like this. This is a pretty tough track to be good on. He raced me real clean.”

A redraw for the feature placed Dietrich fourth for the start. Outside front-row starter Glenndon Forsythe held off polesitter Brian Montieth over the first three laps. Montieth took the lead on lap four, but then disaster struck for the two leaders when spinning lapped traffic led to a Montieth flip and Forsythe spin in turn four.

Dietrich, who running third at the time, inherited the lead and paced the field the rest of the way, but Hogue gave him everything he could handle through heavy lapped traffic.

“That one lap I got into (turn) one there, and I decided to go to the top at the last minute and he was on the outside of me,” said Dietrich, “I thought ‘Oh, man.’ I had a really had a hard time pitching my car down and I was going his direction. He did a good job moving a little bit and I did a good job of trying to keep the car down. There were a couple of moments there that I’m not sure how we made it through. Lapped traffic was tough tonight. It’s unfortunate for the 2W and the 21. There were pretty fast. I wasn’t up on the wheel yet, but those two definitely had good cars there, and it a shame for them.”

The last laps of the race were run with Hogue on Dietrich’s back bumper behind heavy lapped traffic racing for position.

The margin of victory for Dietrich’s 23rd career Lincoln win was a scant .65 seconds.

Third through fifth were eighth-starting Cory Haas, 2014 track champ Alan Krimes (who came from 12th starting spot), and Matt Boland. Sixth through tenth were Adam Wilt, Jim Siegel, 14th-starting Tyler Ross, John Rudisill, and 18th-starting Kevin Nagy.

Rookie Brandon Rahmer was uninjured in a spectacular opening lap flip up the back stretch while battling a pack of cars, eventually landing on the outside guardrail after damaging the Prospect Auto Parts billboard.

410 Sprint heats were won by Boland, Nicole Bower, and Wilt, with 358 point series champ Chase Dietz winning the consolation.

The 20-lap “358” sprint thriller saw 305 sprint car veteran John Braim lead every lap until he was caught by Dwight Leppo coming off the final turn. For Leppo, it was his first career Lincoln win, not counting his big wheel race victory several years ago as a kid.

Leppo started on the pole and chased Braim the entire way before making the race-winning pass and crossing a half car-length ahead of Braim at the end.

Third through fifth were ninth-starting Matt Campbell, seventh-starting Brad McClelland, and lady driver Brie Hershey.

358 Sprint heats were won by Jason Schultz, Kevin Nouse, and McClelland. Nouse dropped from the feature field while running third early in the race.

Harlon Leppo recognized the sprint car career of his retiring cousin Brian by changing the number of his car to 71 and then going on to win the 15-lap Central PA Legends feature.

Leppo started sixth and wrestled the lead from Lucas Montgomery in the first two turns of the final lap to claim the win in the non-stop event (timed at 5 minutes, 4.53 seconds).

Montgomery settled for second in a race that saw three different leaders in the first three laps. Polesitter Travis McClelland led the first lap, followed by third-starting Chris McKinney on lap two, and then fifth-starting Montgomery, who led until the final lap.

Third through fifth were Jason Rochelle, McKinney, and Bill Diehl.

Legend heats were won by Leppo, Montgomery, and Bob Stough, with Tim Henry winning the consolation.

Randy Doty led every lap of the non-stop 25-lap All-American Outlaw feature, crossing in 8 minutes, 15.56 seconds.

Justin Cullum, Brian Green, Dylan Keim, and Rick Hulson (who started 17th) completed the top five.

Lincoln Speedway will once again host its annual Lincoln Race Car Flea Market on Saturday, November 15th from 6 AM to 2 PM followed by the annual Lincoln Speedway Awards Banquet on Saturday, November 22nd from 6 PM to 12:30 AM.

Geiges Claims Port Royal Blue Collar Classic 305 Sprints, Miller Steals 2014 Crown

Mike Erdley Gives Retiring Car Owner Randy Lisi One More Win In 410 Sprints

10/11/14

Port Royal – Jeff Geiges of Hamilton, New Jersey, bested a 48-car field of RaceSaver 305 sprints to pick up the $1,000 victory in Saturday’s third annual Keystone RaceSaver Blue Collar Classic at Port Royal Speedway.

In the 410 sprint feature, Mike Erdley put an exclamation point on the end of his season as his car owner’s retirement nears with his second victory of the season at the track.

And in the xtreme stock main it was Todd Snook scoring the victory.

Tyler Bear of Elliottsburg, who entered the night tied with Jeff Miller Jr. for the point lead in the track 305 sprint series, started second and led the first lap of the Blue Collar Classic for the 305 sprints over fourth starter Adam Carberry of Bensalem. A slowing car on the frontstretch brought out the caution flag just as the first lap was put in the books. .

Carberry stayed right with Bear following the restart but as the laps started to click off, Bear began to pull away. A lap six caution flag brought Carberry back to Bear’s bumper.

Sixth starter Jeff Geiges powered under Carberry to take second on the restart. Logan Wagner –a 410 sprint car regular this season – passed Carberry for third as well during a rare 305 sprint start since moving out of the ranks for the bigger 410 sprint cars. .

The caution flag flew on lap 12 for a two-car crash in turn four, placing Geiges right on leader Bear’s bumper for the new green.

Geiges got a good restart and drove under Bear in bold style for the lead entering turn one . Wagner followed him by and into second but once in front, Geiges began to build a big lead.

After starting 14th in the field with his 2014 title hopes handing by a thread as Bear began at the front of the event, Jeff Miller Jr. raced into the top five with 10 laps to go as Geiges was in command of the field.

As Geiges raced under the white flag, the caution flag flew when defending Blue Collar Classic champion Jake Waters slowed to a stop entering the third turn.

On the restart, Geiges went low and Wagner went high in turn one, but then the red flag flew for a hard frontstretch crash involving Eric Parker and Roger Irvine. Both men were transported to a local hospital for evaluation.

Wagner put the pressure on Geiges on the final lap, but the New Jersey driver would hold on for the $1,000 win.

“I can’t believe it; this is huge,” said Geiges.

“To come out to central Pennsylvania and to be able to compete and beat these guys; this is legendary country. We had some problems Friday night, but we fixed it. Today, everything went perfect. My crew worked their butts off this weekend to get it faster and faster. The set-up was right, the motor was just struggling. I tried to be as smooth as I could. I’m going to relish this. It’s awesome.”

Wagner settled for second.

“There’s a lot of tough guys here tonight,” said Wagner. “My car came in a little bit too late. I’ve got to thank Rod Ort for letting me run this deal.”

Miller Jr. put on a terrific drive on the final lap after restarting two spots back of Bear to get by Carberry for fourth and then to nip Bear at the line for third, thus giving himself the 2014 track crown by the narrowest of margins, just five points and .17 seconds.

“I was a little scared starting 14th, but I knew we had a good car,” said Miller.

“Last night didn’t go the way I wanted it to, but we worked all night and got it done. This thing came on at the end. This is all I ever wanted to do was win a championship in a sprint car especially at Port Royal Speedway.”

Bear and Tyler Reeser completed the top five. Carberry, Shawn Kirkpatrick, Ken Duke Jr., Jordan Thomas and Cliff Brian rounded out the top 10.

Heat races for the 48-car field of 305 sprint cars were won by Anthony Fiore, Bear, Carberry, Geiges, Ryan Stillwaggon and Kirkpatrick. Colby Dice and Brian won the consolations.

Derrick Bowersox of Milton won the non-qualifiers Founder’s Cup race for the 305’s and is a guaranteed starter for next year’s event Classic a main. Cale Reigle, Reed Thompson, Erin Statler and Scott Ellerman were in the top five

Randy Lisi has owned the No. 11 super sprint car that Mike Erdley drove to victory for 15 years and will retire from the sport at the end of the year.

Erdley’s second Port Royal win of the season on Saturday night and seventh of his career at the track was worth $3,500.

“This win is for him,” said Erdley. “He gave me 15 really good years. I couldn’t ask for anything more.”

Erdley started on the pole in his second-to last race in the Lisi No. 11 and got the jump on Greg Hodnett in the Mike Heffner No. 27.

“I knew if he got out front it was probably going to be trouble,” said Erdley of Hodnett. “We kept our car a little free hoping we could roll the corners good the first 10 laps and hope to get the lead.”

Nate Snyder was racing third as Blane Heimbach drove inside of Australian Lynton Jeffrey to take fourth in turns one and two.

Erdley had a 1.645 second lead as they reached lapped traffic before the first caution flag of the race flew with seven laps completed when Joey Hershey slowed to a stop on the frontstretch.

Heimbach drove by Snyder off turn two to take over the third spot on the restart as Erdley streaked away from Hodnett on a fast racing surface and Brent Marks passed Snyder for the fourth spot.

By the halfway point, Erdley was racing through lapped traffic, but was able to maintain a comfortable lead over Hodnett.

The leaders were able to clear traffic momentarily with 17 laps completed as Hodnett began to close on Erdley during the waning laps.

Hodnett was about 10 car lengths back with six laps to go as Erdley approached two lapped cars and the next time by, Hodnett was on Erdley’s bumper as they crossed under the flagstand. Erdley entered turn one low and Hodnett on the top.

Erdley couldn’t clear the two lapped cars and Hodnett had nowhere to go as well and this allowed Heimbach and Marks to close on the pair with two laps left. Marks then passed Heimbach off turn two for third .

Erdley cleared one lapped car on the white flag lap and that was enough to secure his second Port Royal win of the season and the seventh of his career by 1.055 seconds over Hodnett. Heimbach passed Marks back to finish third on the final lap. Snyder completed the top five.

“We were a little too free at the end, but that doesn’t matter,” said Erdley. “I need to thank my guys for working hard all year and my kid - he drew the number one and that made the night a whole lot better.”

“It was a great win,” said Lisi. “It would be nice in two weeks if we could get another one (against the World of Outlaws).”

“We weren’t as good as Mike,” said Hodnett. “He did a nice job and could roll the center good.”

“We’ve struggled a lot this year, but that was a really fun race,” said Heimbach. “We had a really good buggy. It was working good.”

Brock Zearfoss, Jeffrey, Davey Sammons, Curt Stroup and Ryan Taylor rounded out the top 10. Heats for the 20-car field of 410 sprinters were won by Heimbach and Marks.

Todd Snook took the lead from Keith Bissinger on the third circuit of the 15-lap xtreme stock main to pick up that victory.

Bissinger fell out of the race mid-stream, giving way to Mike Goodwin however Goodwin failed to challenge for the victory.

Jason Zook was third followed by Deron Henry and Matt Wampler.

Twin heats went to Snook and Zook.

Mike Wagner II Wins Kickoff To Port Royal Blue Collar Classic Weekend Friday,

Grant Adams takes limited lates

10/10/14

Port Royal – Mike Wagner II of Harrisonville kicked off the 305 sprint Blue Collar Classic weekend at Port Royal Speedway with a win on Friday night

It was Wagner’s first Port Royal win of the season and the fifth overall of his career at the track.

He nearly gave the win away when he lost the lead to Jeff Miller Jr. on the ninth tour of the 20-lap main.

“I was just flirting with the inside wall a little bit and it gave me a bite,” said Wagner referring to contact with the wall when he lost the lead mid-race.

“The track was fast. I made a small mistake and it cost me the lead for a little bit.”

Shortly after track point leader Miller took the lead he took a dramatic ride up and over the right rear tire of Mifflintown’s Jake Waters, somehow landing on four wheels on the backchute but ending Waters’ night.

“There was a scuffle in front of me and Jeff Miller got into it, but he kept going. He had a really fast car as he always does. He probably deserved to win. I got pretty lucky,” Wagner said in victory lane.

“I started up front and the car was fast. This is my win at Port this year, so I’m happy about that.”

Wagner started on the pole and drove into the lead to start the 20-lap main event for the RaceSaver 305 sprints.

Zach Newlin of Millerstown drove by Brad Franks of Collegeville and into second at the start

Jeff Miller Jr. also drove by Franks and into third as Newlin looked under Wagner in turn four for the lead, but couldn’t make the pass. Miller would take second from Newlin shortly thereafter.

Miller drove by Wagner as they raced down the backchute to take the lead on lap eight after Wagner clipped the inside fence off turn two, dramatically slowing his momentum.

Waters slowed on the backstretch the next lap and Miller jumped his tire and got airborne but somehow came down and didn’t stop, allowing him to maintain the lead.

Miller’s luck came to an end on the restart however as he slowed to a stop in turn four with a blown tire.

“I almost got into him when his car broke,” said Wagner.

“It was really close. I’m glad it all worked out for me tonight.”

Wagner controlled the final 11 laps to score the win over Franks, Matt Heimbach, Paul Snyder and Tyler Bear. Bill Jones Jr., Jordan Thomas, Scott Frack, Scott Ellerman and Roger Irvine completed the top 10.

The 305 sprint heats for the 34 cars were won by Mike Esposito, Wagner II, Shawn Kirkpatrick and Miller Jr. The consolation was won by Nathan Gramley.

Grant Adams of Grantville grabbed the early race lead in the 20-lap main event for the limited late models before the caution flew with one lap completed. Rick Singleton drove by Todd Snook and into second on the restart.

Division kingpin Gene Knaub was making his way through the field from the seventh starting spot and he moved to fourth on the restart and a pass of Snook got him into third.

Singleton took a shot under the leader in turn two in lapped traffic but Adams held on. The caution flew on lap eight and then another yellow for a frontstretch crash on the restart again bunched the field.

Singleton went after Adams hard on the restart as the pair nearly made contact off of turn two. They were close again down the backstretch and into the third turn seconds later when they made contact again with Singleton slipping high off turn four allowing Knaub to take over second.

Singleton then stopped on the backstretch with 10 laps completed.

Adams, of Grantville, would hold off the challenges of Knaub over the final eight laps to score the $1,000 win.

Knaub settled for second ahead of Snook, J.R. Rodriguez and Brad Kling. Dave Leidy, Nathan Lasalle, Chad Latshaw, Ken Yoder and Dave Stamm completed the top 10.

“That was exciting,” said Adams. “We didn’t get to race much this year so to end the season with a win is good for us. It was a good race. I’m glad I came out on top.”

The limited late model heats for the 25 cars went to Knaub, Rodriguez and Adams.

The Blue Collar Classic concludes at Port Royal Saturday with a 25-lap, $1,000-to win feature for the 305 sprints, along with the final tune-up for the 410-sprints prior to the World of Outlaws sprint cars coming up Saturday. Oct. 25.

Miller Jr. and Bear are tied for the point lead heading into Saturday’s 305 sprint Port Royal finale.

New Englander David Gravel Wins 52nd Williams Grove Speedway National Open

Connecticut driver nets $50,000 with prestigious, first ever Grove win over outlaws!

10/4/14

Mechanicsburg – Williams Grove Speedway graduate David Gravel scored the biggest win of his career on Saturday night at the track when he took victory in the 52nd annual World of Outlaws National Open for sprint cars, worth $50,000.

The Connecticut native started on the pole of the field for the 40-lap National Open after the 55-car field was narrowed down to 28 starters.

Lucas Wolfe flanked Gravel for the start.

Sixth starter Stevie Smith moved into fourth with five laps down while Gravel held sway followed by Wolfe and Dale Blaney.

Blaney was applying heavy pressure to Wolfe for second and the pair was racing closely together for the spot when Smith locked fast to the inside lane and made an exciting two car pass in the second turn to blast from fourth to second.

Smith was closing in on Gravel as both men worked lapped traffic when the races first caution flag unfurled with 15 laps away, slowing the pace for the first time.

Gravel chose the inside lane for the double file restart and beat Smith off of the bottom to lead the field down the frontchute followed by Wolfe, Blaney and defending outlaws champion Daryn Pittman.

Smith raced in the leader’s shadow for the next several laps, unable to get enough drive to complete a pass of Gravel and the front runners again entered the backmarkers with 15 laps to go.

Then a final yellow flag bunched the field with 13 laps to go as Greg Hodnett rolled to a stop in the first corner, slowing the pace for the caution before the yellow turned to red for refueling.

Gravel again chose the inside groove for the restart with Smith on the outside in second, Blaney in third and five-time Open winner Donny Schatz, who started seventh, now up to fourth.

Smith pounced on the restart, following Gravel thorugh the first and second turns before diving low in turns three and four to drive up off of the fourth corner with the lead as lap 28 was scored.

And then just as Smith had done earlier in the race, chasing Gravel virtually nose to tail around the track, Gravel did the same thing with Smith.

Lap after lap and inside the final 10 circuits, Smith crossed the finish line with Gravel glued to his rear bumper, trying to make his way to the $50,000 checkered flag.

But disaster struck Smith just after the pair completed the 33rd tour as the leaders set their mounts into the first turn.

Smith seemingly spun his car in front of the field as he broke low to run across the bottom of the track while Gravel broke high, wide and handsome up against the fence for a run through the turns.

But Smith never stopped his car, instead completing a 360-degree spin as the field took evasive action to avoid contact.

As such with Smith moving away although getting passed by numerous cars, a yellow flag was avoided and the benefactor of Smith’s spin was Schatz, who had been racing third since the last restart.

Schatz took over second by virtue of the Smith spin and began chomping into Gravel’s advantage.

However lapped cars during the races final three circuits helped keep Schatz at bay as the North Dakota pilot needed a clear inside lane in order to make his attempts at snaring the top spot from Gravel work.

With Schatz’s runs somewhat thwarted by the slower traffic running the middle to bottom grooves, Gravel was able to sneak away to the prestigious victory, which turned out to also be his first ever at the historic Cumberland County oval.

Immediately upon climbing out of his Roth No. 83 sprint car, Gravel began apologizing to Smith.

“It really sucks that I got into the back of Stevie,” Gravel revealed of apparent contact with leader Smith.

“I feel really, really bad, it takes away (from) the win.”

“I just got him good enough and got him sideways. I’m sorry to all you fans.”

“I wished we coulda’ raced it out,” Gravel said.

“I’m just ashamed that I hit him.”

Then along came second place finisher Schatz to the microphone, who put a different spin on the situation when asked what he saw of the contact and what he thought when he saw it.

“I probably shouldn’t say,” Schatz said.

“You have that racin’ with the 83 I guess from time to time. He came out on the good side tonight.”

Pittman rode home third at the finish, noting that he didn’t feel bad behind the wheel but that he struggled to make anything happen during the entire event.

Blaney finished fourth with eighth starter Lance Dewease driving up to fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Shane Stewart, Danny Dietrich, Brad Sweet, Stevie Smith and Alan Krimes, who started 28th.

Heats went to Stewart, Dewease, Schatz, Craig Dollansky and Danny Holtgraver,

Curt Michael claimed the C Main, Doug Esh took the B Main and Gravel won the dash to earn the pole for the Open.

Fast time was set by Pittman with a lap of 16.883 seconds.

The highly anticipated Port Royal program will be the last chance for area fans to see multi-time outlaws champion Steve Kinser of Bloomington, IN., compete in the state of Pennsylvania as a full-time outlaws pilot.

And the opportunity should not be missed by anyone to send Kinser out of the state with a classic outlaws vs. posse duel at “The Port.”

The October 25 show will be just the eighth appearance in history of the World of Outlaws at the theater of speed, Port Royal Speedway.

And the show will mark the first visit by the band to Port Royal since its last visit back in 2004.

Reserve seats are now on sale for the big show at www.worldofoutlaws.com/tickets.

Reserve seating admission tickets, available in rows 7 – 19 of the aluminum grandstand, are set at $35 with adult general “day of” prices set at $30.

Selinsgrove Speedway

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Aaron Ott of East Berlin made a late-race pass by Justin Barger of Montose, N.Y., to score the $10,000 victory in Saturday night's 14th Annual Mach 1 Chassis National Open for 358-360 sprint cars at Selinsgrove Speedway.

For Ott, driving the Don Ott Racing Engines No. 25 entry, the win in the 35-lap main event was his second career at the track, having also won the June 7 Jack Gunn Memorial. He became the ninth different driver to win the 358-360 sprint car Open since its inception in 2001.

The $10,000 first-place prize marked a record winner's share for 358-360 sprint cars in the track's history. Barger collected $5,000 for finishing in the runner-up position.

Jason Shultz of Carlisle was the night's fast qualifier with a lap time of 17.444 over the 34-car field.

Saturday night's race concluded the 2014 season at the Snyder County half-mile oval. Promoter Charlie Paige announced the 360 sprint cars, late models, pro stocks, and roadrunners would return for the 2015 season.

The DH&L Fire Co. will hold its annual Race Car Flea Market on the speedway grounds on Saturday, Oct. 25.

Front-row starters Davie Franek and Justin Barger dueled for the lead entering turn one on the start of the main event. Franek pulled into the early lead racing off turn two as Barger, sixth-place starter Chuck Hebing, and fourth-place starter Aaron Ott were in close pursuit.

On the seventh circuit, Barger started to gain real estate on Franek while Ott powered by Hebing for the third position. The race was stopped on lap nine when Parker Evans struck the fourth-turn wall and flipped over in his sprint car. Evans escaped injury.

When the race resumed, Barger put in a bid for the lead only to fall in line behind Franek. By lap 13, eighth-place starter Mark Smith advanced to fourth. A hard crash in turn three involving Hebing and seventh-place starter Cody Keller on lap 16 halted the race again. Both drivers walked away from the incident uninjured.

On the push-off to restart the race, Franek's car developed a serious mechanical issue, forcing the race leader to withdraw from the event. Barger inherited the lead for the lap 17 restart with Ott, Smith, fifth-place starter Jason Shultz, and third-place starter Robbie Stillwaggon racing in the top five. On the restart, 10th-place starter TJ Stutts stormed around the outside line and entered the top five.

With 15 laps remaining, a war on wheels unfolded at the front of the pack as Ott pressured Barger for the lead. On the 25th circuit, Stutts advanced to third and closed in on the leaders in a three-car battle for the lead in lapped traffic. On the 28th lap, misfortune nearly struck Ott when Shannon Fisher's car fell off the pace on the backstretch, forcing Ott to take evasive action.

On the 31st circuit, Ott made the winning pass by Barger using the inside lane off turn four. For the final laps, Barger kept Ott in his sights as Shultz rebounded into the third position. At the checkered flag, Ott was victorious by just two seconds over Barger, Shultz, Stutts, and Smith.

Historic Williams Grove Speedway National Open Celebrates 52 Years October 3 & 4

9/29/14

Mechanicsburg – Sprint car fans in the East will gather this Saturday night to see the 52nd running of the Williams Grove Speedway National Open for sprint cars sanctioned by the STP World of Outlaws, 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’s 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 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.

Saturdays National Open action begins at 7:30 pm. Friday night's preliminary action starts at 7:30 as well.

Fireworks displays will be a part of both National Open races this weekend.

Adult general admission for Friday is $30 with youth admitted for just $15.

Admission prices for Saturday’s National Open are $35 for adults and $15 for youth.

And please remember, kids ages 12 and under are always admitted free at Williams Grove Speedway.

Gates open at 5 pm both nights.

Williams Grove World Of Outlaws 52nd Annual National Open Races This Week

Friday & Saturday World of Outlaws Fall Classic is October 3 & 4

Saturday Open pays $50,000 to win!

9/28/14

Mechanicsburg – Williams Grove Speedway will present the premier sprint car event of the season in the east this Friday and Saturday, October 3 and 4, when it hosts the 52nd annual STP World of Outlaws National Open races.

Friday will find the historic oval hosting a full program of World of Outlaws sprint car racing complete with a 25-lap main event paying $8,000 to win before the big one takes center stage on Saturday.

Saturday’s 52nd annual World of Outlaws National Open will go the customary 40 laps with the winner going home with $50,000 in his coffers.

Qualifying time trials for both events will begin at 7:30 pm.

The two-day Williams Grove World of Outlaws vs. PA Posse stand will be the third match-up of the season at the oval between the two factions.

So far this season, it’s a tie game in outlaws vs. posse action at Williams Grove Speedway as circuit favorite Daryn Pittman swept a two-day stand in May before locals Greg Hodnett and Lance Dewease flew the posse colors high with a two-day sweep in July.

Local driver Fred Rahmer of Salfordville capped off his stellar career with his first and only win in the prestigious Williams Grove National Open main last October before retiring from the sport to become a car owner.

Rahmer’s mount will be in the Open field this season with veteran Stevie Smith at the wheel.

Throughout history, no other driver has ever won the Williams Grove National Open as many times as outlaws warrior Donny Schatz who put himself on top of the event win list by claiming the 2012 running of the classic event.

Schatz will enter the Williams Grove National Open weekend stand as the hottest driver on the outlaws tour in 2014, leading the point standings by a wide margin while also having accrued the most wins of any circuit driver this season.

Schatz is currently at 24 outlaws season wins and holding over his closest pursuer, Pittman who has 13 victories on the trail.

Schatz’s season win total of 24 to date is the most that the Midwest flyer has ever accumulated in one season during his illustrious career.

The local PA Posse drivers scored a sweep of National Open weekend action last season when Don Kreitz Jr. scored a popular defeat of the outlaws travelers in the Friday night National Open Preliminary before turning over bragging rights to Rahmer on Saturday for the big score.

Fireworks displays will be a part of both National Open races this weekend.

The National Open itself carries a raindate of October 5.

Adult general admission for Friday is $30 with youth admitted for just $15.

Admission prices for Saturday’s National Open are $35 for adults and $15 for youth.

And please remember, kids ages 12 and under are always admitted free at Williams Grove Speedway.

Gates open at 5 pm both nights.

He followed outside front row starter Lance Dewease for one lap before making the race-winning pass in the first two turns of lap two. From there, he held off Dewease and the rest of the field through heavy lapped traffic over the second half of the race to score his second win of the year and 26th career win the Pigeon Hills.

“It’s the position they put me in,” said Smith upon exiting his Fred Rahmer and David Pritchard-owned, Miller Brothers Chevrolet/A.R.A.N. Limited #51s in victory lane, “Fred, Moon (Byers), Freddie, and Dave…all the sponsors…they put me here. I’m having a hell-of-a-time doing it. It’s been fun.”

In addition to the all-time Lincoln record $20,000 top prize, the driver and owner each received specially designed giant plates produced by Moose Blocks.

“I want to see if Fred wants to trade me $20,000 for this plaque,” quipped Smith, “But he had three cars out here tonight, and he needs about $40,000!”

Smith had a comfortable 1.85-second lead with ten laps to go, but it quickly evaporated as Dewease closed onto his back bumper when the two heavy lapped traffic with eight to go. Third-place Shane Stewart (driving the Kyle Larson/Justin Marks #2) and fourth-place Alan Krimes were the others to close on the battle for the lead, as Smith tried to safely navigate the lapped traffic in the waning laps.

Those four crossed nearly nose-to-tail at the finish, with Smith’s margin of victory a scant quarter of-a-second. Central PA Point Series champ Greg Hodnett finished fifth, with All-Star points champion Dale Blaney, Danny Dietrich, NASCAR star Dave Blaney, and rookies Austin Hogue and Tim Wagaman (who started 17th) completing the top ten.

Brent Marks came from 21st after an engine fire in his first heat to win his second heat and finish 11th in the feature.

“I’m really happy to be a part of this deal, and we’re going to focus now on Williams Grove (next week’s National Open),” said Smith, “This win means a lot. Of course, Fred’s the all-time winner here, and my dad’s right there, and I’m a lot of wins behind them. They’re the best drivers ever to come to this track. But we took $20,000 out of here. I want to thank Kasey Kahne and Jarrod and Shannon Adams (Kasey’s sister and brother-in-law) for all their work on putting this together. And I want to thank Lincoln Speedway, Alan Kreitzer and the Leibys. The Leibys have done a lot for me and my racing career, and they helped me get here, too.

Coming from NASCAR competition to Lincoln with Kahne was Kyle Larson, both of which addressed the record-setting crowd during course of the evening. 1st Round Heats were won by Dewease, Stevie Smith, Dave Blaney, Gerard McIntyre, Jr., and Danny Dietrich. 2nd Round Heats were won by Adam Wilt, Hodnett, Steve Owings, Marks, and Stewart. C-Main was won by Brian Carber and the B-Main was won by Marks. Fast time in time trials over the 52-car field was set by Dewease with one-lap time of 13.329-seconds (101.283 mph).

Lincoln will remain dark next Saturday (10/4), as Williams Grove runs its annual National Open, and then return to action for its final show of the season on Saturday, October 11th. The event will include the 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints & Central PA Legends, with the All-American Outlaws added as a fourth division in a feature-only program for them. Gates open at 4:00 PM, with the first green flag waving at 6:00 PM.

Stevie Smith Claims Battle With Hodnett To Win Williams Grove Open Tune Up

Nouse gets sixth in 358 sprints

9/26/14

Mechanicsburg – Stevie Smith and Greg Hodnett battled like the professionals that they are, putting on an impressive display of skill for the victory in Friday night’s 25-lap National Open tune up event for 410 sprints at Williams Grove Speedway with Smith coming out on top for his fourth oval win of the season.

In the 20-lap 358 sprint main Kevin Nouse took the lead at the halfway point to record his sixth Williams Grove checkers of the year.

The start of the 410 sprint feature was red flagged for a backstretch flip by Pat Cannon, who escaped injury.

Hodnett had the pole to start the race with Smith to his outside and the race was decided between the pair with Smith at first getting the lead on the start that was red flagged before Hodnett got the drop on the second attempt.

An early caution flag bunched the field with three laps down and Hodnett leading and when action resumed Smith drove deep into the third corner to take the lead.

Hodnett fought back seconds later however and drove even deeper into the first corner to get back around Smith and again hold control.

But he had his hands full with Smith, who gave him absolutely no breathing room lap after lap and as the race entered lapped traffic it was beginning to seem inevitable that Smith would again get the lead at some point.

Smith literally raced less than a half car length from Hodnett’s bumper, relentlessly stalking him as each lap clicked off until he was finally able to beat him to the center of the first corner with a gutsy move to Hodnett’s inside.

In the blink of an eye Smith beat Hodnett to the center of the turn and then he twitched the car for a lane change of just one car width to set his No. 51 on the cushion directly in front of Hodnett’s planned swoop around the outsider of the corners.

And then with Hodnett forced to backpedal to prevent contact Smith jetted away down the backchute.

A final caution flag regouped the field on the 17th tour and on the restart 12th starter Doug Esh earned attention with his run inside the top five.

He moved from fifth to blast by Lance Dewease and Craig Dollansky over the final seven laps to finish third.

Meanwhile, while Esh was performing, Hodnett tracked Smith back down over the final four laps and excited the fans again by driving to Smith’s inside off of the turns.

But after Smith saw Hodnett getting that far around while running the bottom, the veteran moved down on the track to preserve the $4,000 victory.

“It was a ball, I’ll tell ya’,” Smith said of his contest with Hodnett.

“It was a hell of a race!”

Car owner Fred Rahmer gave his take on the display of skill for the win.

“He’s one hell of a driver,” Rahmer said.

“Last year I was too old or we could of won a lot of races. He makes me look like a genius,” he said of Smith.

Invader Dollansky rode home fourth followed by Dewease.

Sixth through 10th went to Danny Dietrich, Lucas Wolfe, Don Kreitz Jr., Brian Montieth and Curt Michael.

Heats for the 34 car field went to Lynton Jeffrey, Kreitz, Dollansky and Dewease.

Hodnett claimed the dash and Adam Wilt scored the B Main.

Dietrich set fast time with a lap of 16.498 seconds.

Unofficially, Hodnett took over the season point lead from Kreitz by 50 markers.

Nouse started 10th in the 358 sprint main and got by leader Jordan Givler at the halfway point to get his win.

The victory unofficially sealed up bragging rights for Nouse in the 2014 title chase.

Second in points to date on the season, Adrian Shaffer was involved in a lap seven incident on the backstretch that brought out the red flag.

Givler finished a solid second in the feature followed by Chris Arnold, Scott Fisher and Brad McClelland.

Heats for the 22 car field went to Matt Findley, Arnold and McClelland.

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY / MACH 1 CHASSIS 360 SPRINT CAR NATIONAL OPEN SEPTEMBER 27 $10,000 TO WIN - $500 TO START

2013 National Open Winner TJ Stutts SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Selinsgrove Speedway will present its first-ever $10,000-to-win race for 358-360 sprint cars at 7 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 27, as part of the 14th Annual Mach 1 Chassis National Open. Sprint car teams from the United Racing Company (URC) and Empire Super Sprint (ESS) traveling groups are expected to join the central Pennsylvania regulars to vie for the lucrative winner’s share.

The purse for this year’s 358-360 sprint car Open will exceed $35,000, with $5,000 being posted to finish second, $1,000 for a 10th-place finish, and $500 just to start the race.

To date, 16 races have produced eight different feature winners. Points leader Mark Smith of Sunbury leads the win column with six victories at the track, followed by three-time winner TJ Stutts of Liverpool.

2014 360 Sprint Car Champion Mark Smith Davie Franek of Wantage, N.J., is the only other repeat winner with two checkered flags.

Heimbach won the 2005 Open and the rain-postponed 2009 edition of the Open that was run in the spring of 2010. Adrian Shaffer of Hallam was the Open champion in 2002, while Nate Snyder of Halifax took the victory in the 2004 race. Phil Walter of McClure took home the trophy in 2006.

Dietrich Runs High Line to Win Inaugural Sprint Car Fall Classic on Sunday Night at SSP

Next Wednesday Night Test & Tune on October 1

Newberrytown, PA (September 21, 2014) – Gettysburg’s Danny Dietrich won his first SSP 410 Sprint Carl feature race of the season at the Susquehanna Speedway Park on Sunday Night. Curt Michael of Ocean View, Delaware bested the field in the 358/360 Sprint Car Challenge race presented by www.shetronequipment.com and Newville Construction Services. Zach Overmiller and Mike Zelionis each took victories in the two 8-lap Sidewinder Sprint Car features.

In the 25-lap 410 Sprint Car feature event, Greg Hodnett took the early lead over Freddie Rahmer. Rahmer stayed close and within striking distance as the duo entered lapped traffic midway through the race. A caution on lap 13 closed up the field and gave Hodnett smooth waters in front of him. On the restart, Danny Dietrich moved around Rahmer to take the runner-up spot and set his sites on Hodnett.

World Of Outlaws Storm Port Royal Speedway In 34 Days!

9/21/14

Port Royal – Just 34 days remain until the heralded return of the STP World of Outlaws sprint cars to Port Royal Speedway, on Saturday, October 25 at 5 pm.

The October 25 show will be the first of its kind at the track in a decade for the national touring band.

The Port Royal event will be the final appearance on Pennsylvania clay by perennial outlaws champion Steve Kinser of Bloomington, Ind., as a full time touring professional with the outlaws.

“Port Royal has the greatest fans anywhere and they’ve really supported us and come back to us over the last three years as we all have worked together to make Port Royal the kind of venue that can now host the World of Outlaws again,” noted Port Royal promoter Steve O’Neal earlier this season.

The World of Outlaws too are excited to be getting back to Port Royal.

“Some of the most passionate sprint car fans anywhere in the world are in Pennsylvania, so we’re looking forward to bringing the Outlaws back to Port Royal for the first time in 10 years,” said World of Outlaws CEO Brian Carter just after finalizing the date on paper.

“The fans have been asking to see the Outlaws at Port Royal for a long time. We’re very excited to return and expand our schedule in Pennsylvania.”

The most recent World of Outlaws show at the track took place back in 2004 when Donny Schatz took the win over Daryn Pittman, Lucas Wolfe, Steve Kinser and Kraig Kinser.

To date in Port Royal and World of Outlaws history there has been a total of seven World of Outlaws events held at Port Royal Speedway.

It wasn’t until 2001 that an outlaws pilot graced the Port Royal winner’s circle when Danny Wood took the victory.

Local Lynn Paxton took the first ever outlaws show held at the track back in 1979.

Other Port Royal World of Outlaws winners have been Jason Meyers, Brad Furr, Doug Wolfgang and Don Kreitz Jr.

Reserve seats are now on sale at www.worldofoutlaws.com/tickets.

SCHULTZ EARNS FIRST SPRINT CAR WIN OF SEASON

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Jason Shultz of Carlisle finally made a break-through and scored his first win of the season in Saturday night's 25-lap 360 sprint car main event at Selinsgrove Speedway. Shultz, who won four races and the track championship last year, was at the wheel of the Horstcraft Millworks No. 29 for his 13th career win at the track. Tim Wilson of McClure held off late-race challenges for his second win of the season at Selinsgrove in the 25-lap super late model feature. In the 15-lap pro stock feature, Adam Campbell of Danville earned his first career win, while Keith Bissinger of Orangeville won his eighth race of the season in the 12-lap roadrunner feature.

The 2014 track championships were clinched by Mark Smith of Sunbury (360 sprint cars), Jeff Rine of Danville (late models), Brad Mitch of McClure (pro stocks), and Keith Bissinger of Orangeville (roadrunners).

Selinsgrove Speedway will conclude the season with the 14th annual Mach 1 Chassis National Open for 358-360 sprint cars at 7 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 27. The 35-lap Open will pay $10,000 to win out of the $35,000-plus purse. Track gates will open at 5 p.m.

Second-place starter Michael Walter II stormed into the lead at the drop of the green flag in the sprint car feature. Walter was chased by fourth-place starter Colby Womer, third-place starter Cody Keller, and eighth-place starter Jason Shultz, and by lap five the leaders began to encounter slower traffic.

By lap 10, Walter stretched his lead to a straightaway over Womer as Shultz advanced to third. The race's first caution flag unfurled on lap 11 when Bill Sherman spun his car in turn four. When the race resumed, Walter continued to lead with Shultz moving into the second position.

Another caution flag for Mallie Shuster in turn four regrouped the field. On the lap 14 restart, Shultz made the winning pass using the inside lane entering turn one. The final caution flag waved on lap 20 when Pat Cannon's car rolled to a stop on the frontstretch.

Racing into turn one, Keller made an exciting pass to take away the second position with 12th-place starter TJ Stutts streaking into the third position. At the finish, Shultz was victorious by just .92 of a second over Keller, Stutts, 10th-place starter Davie Franek, and Walter.

Second-place starter Meade Hahn and third-place starter Tim Wilson dueled for the lead in the late model feature for 11 laps before Wilson secured the front spot with an inside pass in turn four on the 12th circuit. By the 14th lap, Wilson began to open up a comfortable lead over polesitter Danny Snyder and fifth-place starter Jason Schmidt.

With 10 laps to go, 11th-place starter Jim Yoder began to show a lot of speed and advanced to the second spot with 20th-place starter Jeff Rine in tow. The final caution flag unfurled on lap 22 for Jim Bernheisel, setting up a chase to the checkered flag between Wilson, Yoder, and Rine.

Yoder and Rine pressured Wilson during the final three laps of the race but it was Wilson taking the checkered flag by a mere .54 of a second over Yoder. Rine, 16th-place starter Chad Hollenbeck, and 10th-place starter Bryan Bernheisel completed the top five.

Polesitter Matt Wilson powered into the early lead in the pro stock feature. On the fourth circuit, Wilson's car bobbled in turn two, allowing third-place starter Brandon Moser to take command of the field. Fifth-place starter AJ Stroup raced a close second but was forced to withdraw from the race when his car developed mechanical problems on lap eight while pacing under caution.

Moser led through the 10th lap, when sixth-place starter Adam Campbell made a pass for the lead. A lap later, Moser spun in turn four, setting up a four-car battle between Campbell, fourth-place starter Nathan Long, eighth-place starter Kyle Bachman, and ninth-place starter Andrew Shoop.

At the checkered flag, Campbell was victorious by just .49 of a second over Long, Bachman, Shoop, and 19th-place starter Jake Buck.

Second-place starter Brandon Shultz led the first lap of the roadrunner race until eighth-place starter Keith Bissinger stormed to the front of the pack with a pass in turn four. Late in the race, third-place starter Bob Bussey reeled in Bissinger and was the leader's most serious challenger. At the finish line, Bissinger was victorious by 2.7 seconds over Bussey, John Fowler Jr., Shultz, and Toby Chase.

Central PA 358 Point Series presented by Capitol Renegade

Once again the Central PA 358 Point Series presented by Capitol Renegade saw the completion of three point races with 3 different winners. Friday night at Trail Way Speedway 14 year old Wyatt Hinkle found victory lane leading all 25 laps of the season finally at the bullring. Hinkle became the only rookie in 2014 to visit victory lane with the win and jumped to the lead in the 2014 Rookie of the Year standings. 1 time winner this season Seth Kearchner would come up just short in snatching the victory from Hinkle while Randy Whisler would come home in 3rd place. At Williams Grove Speedway Chad Trout would score his 1st 358 feature victory since 2010 by leading all 20 laps. Kevin Nouse would score a close second place finish just coming up short in his bid to win his 9th feature event of the season at the historic half mile. Saturday night was a different story as Nouse would take the lead late in the race from Doug Hammaker to score that 9th victory of the season, but also Kevin's 100th career victory. Hammaker would hold on to 2nd place over rookie CJ Tracey, Jeff Rohrbaugh and Matt Campberll.

With his win on Saturday night Kevin Nouse has closed to within 31 points of series leader Brad McClelland with just 4 point series races left in the season. Nouse has won at all three of the tracks this season that still host a series race, so Brad is going to have to race hard to keep Nouse from reclaiming the points lead that he held for most of the 2014 racing season.

1. Brad McClelland 961 Pts.(10 Win) 2. Kevin Nouse -930 Pts. (9 Win) 3. Matt Campbell -578 Pts. (3 win) 4. Chase Dietz -567 Pts. (4 win) 5. Chandler Leiby -538 Pts. (1 win) 6. Dwight Leppo - 535 Pts.

Nouse wins feature, Rohrbaugh claims Trail-Way/Lincoln Shootout in 358 sprints;

Dalton Dietrich wins first of career in PASS Racesaver Sprints

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 9/20/14 – “That’s was pretty exciting.”

That understatement of the night was delivered by Danny Dietrich after scoring his fourth win of the year in the 25-lap Hank Gentzler Memorial Manufacturers Appreciation Night feature at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

The thriller saw Dietrich and Montieth throw slide jobs at each other in every turn over the final five laps.

“I wasn’t sure who was going to win. He got to second and I was kinda biding my time there in lapped traffic,” said Dietrich upon exiting his Sandoe’s Fruit Market/Weikert’s Livestock #48 in victory lane.

Time trials and an inversion of eight put Dietrich on the front row with polesitter Brandon Rahmer for the start. Dietrich wasted no time in grabbing the front spot in the first two turns, holding off fourth-starting Cory Haas through the middle stages of the race as Montieth was working his way to the front from sixth starting spot.

Montieth took second from Haas with five laps to go, and slid under Dietrich for the race lead exiting turn four of lap 21. But a caution for a four-car spin involving Jim Siegel, Bill Stine, Shane Hoff, and Aaron Ott in turns one and two negated the pass.

“He caught me by surprise,” said Dietrich, “I thought he was racing Cory (for second). Dietrich assumed the lead for the final restart, with Haas back in second and Montieth third.

Montieth drove around Haas immediately and started the late-race duel, taking the lead by the completion of lap 21.

From there, it was slide job heaven on each turn. Montieth was actually scored the leader of laps 21 and 22.

“It was definitely elbows up. I’m not sure who had the best line but I knew I could stick the bottom and through the middle pretty good,” said Dietrich, “The last lap I blew it into one and I figured I just needed to get to the cushion first and drive off. If I sat too long in the middle, he’d be standing here. It was good, clean, hard, fun racing. It doesn’t get any more exciting than that. My hat’s off to Montieth for a hell of-a-run he put on.”

Montieth settled for a close second .256 seconds behind Dietrich, with Haas, Austin Hogue, and Brandon Rahmer.

Sixth through tenth were Greg Hodnett, Lance Dewease, track champ Alan Krimes, Adam Wilt, and Gerard McIntyre, Jr.

Sprint heats were won by Danny Dietrich, Haas, Dewease, and Montieth, with Jordan Mackison winning the consolation. Fast time in time trials over the 45-car field was set by Krimes with one-lap time of 13.388-seconds (100.837 MPH).

More than $42,000 in manufacturers’ products and services were distributed to the 24 race teams that qualified for the feature. Thanks to the efforts of Denise Gentzler and Hank’s Performance Products, every driver received a prize package worth at least $1,600 at intermission. Bonus money was also provided to the first two alternates and the hard charger.

Mechanicsburg’s Kevin Nouse came from sixth starting spot to claim his 100th career win in the 20-lap “358” sprint car feature. Nouse took the lead from Doug Hammaker in heavy lapped traffic as the leaders came down the front stretch to begin lap 18.

Hammaker settled for second, with C.J. Tracey, Jeff Rohrbaugh, and Matt Campbell completing the top five.

Rohrbaugh’s fourth-place finish coupled with his fourth-place finish at Trail-Way back on September 5th was good enough to claim the 2014 Trail-Way/Lincoln Shootout bonus of $500, edging Mike Bittinger in a tie-breaker for having the better Lincoln finish.

Heats for the 358 Sprints were won by Bittinger, Hammaker, and Jeff Halligan, with Brad McClelland winning the consolation, and finishing third in the two-race Shootout.

Dalton Dietrich assumed the lead when Colby Dice lost a drive line on lap six, and went on to score his first career win in the PASS Racesaver 305 Sprint Car 20-lap feature event.

Scott Ellerman, 11th-starting Paul Snyder, Cale Griffin, and Mark Watkins finished second through fifth.

Heats for the 21 PASS Sprints were won by Erin Statler and Watkins.

Next Saturday night, September 27th, Lincoln will host the $20,000-to-win “DIRT CLASSIC PRESENTED BY KASEY KAHNE” for the 410 Sprints. Time trials will start at 7:00 PM, with gates opening at 4:00 PM.

Marks Steals Wilson's Williams Grove Win, Chad Trout Scores 358 Sprints

MECHANICSBURG, PA – Brent Marks executed a fourth turn pass of Ryan Wilson racing to the white flag and led the final lap to win the 25-lap 410 sprint car feature Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway.

In the 358 sprint main it was Chad Trout outrunning Kevin Nouse to pick up the victory.

Marks, of Myerstown, earned $4,120 for his third Grove win of the season and his sixth overall win in the Jeff Marks No. 19M.

The caution flag flew on the opening lap when Danny Dietrich hit the frontstretch wall and stopped. Steve Buckwalter gave up the sixth starting spot and pitted under the same caution.

Aaron Ott grabbed the early race lead when action got going, but blew an engine racing down the backstretch with one lap completed.

Wilson inherited the lead for the restart and saw Austin Hogue drive under Rick Lafferty to take the runner-up spot.

The caution flag flew again with three laps completed as Pat Cannon slid backwards and hit the inside frontstretch fence.

Marks was in fourth on the restart and would get by Lafferty and into third while Brian Montieth was up to fifth from the 11th starting spot.

Wilson built a big lead as everybody raced around a very fast top groove. He began to lap slower cars at the half-way point.

Marks put a slider on Hogue to take the runner-up spot and close in on the leader.

Montieth and Greg Hodnett passed Hogue to move up in the top five shortly thereafter.

Marks and Montieth both began to close on the leader at that point as well.

All three drivers ended up clearing the lapped cars for the final five laps.

They were close as they raced under the two-lap sign from the flagman and then Marks pulled the trigger for the slider in turn three, clearing Wilson as they raced off turn four to the white flag.

“The track was just so fast tonight,” said Marks.

“It was racy, but it was fast and it took a lot of patience. I couldn’t get by Austin and I seen Ryan pulling away from us. Finally, I pulled a slider down here in three and cleared him."

"I beat the crap out of my car to catch him. I’m up to 290 degrees on my engine and that’s not good. Hopefully, we didn’t hurt that."

"I was just close enough to complete the pass. I knew I had him cleared, I figured he had to get out of it. I’m excited to get our sixth win of the year. It means a lot. This is a great year for us.”

It was Wilson’s second runner-up this season.

“We’re getting closer,” said Wilson. “Brent knows how to pull a slide-job better than I do and he knows how to turn back under somebody better than I do. I’m still in that learning curve.”

He controlled the final lap to score the win over Wilson, Montieth, Hodnett and Lance Dewease. Hogue, Alan Krimes, Lafferty, point leader Don Kreitz Jr. and Danny Dietrich completed the top 10.

Marks, Hodnett and Dewease won the 10-lap heat races for the 28-car field. Cory Haas won the consolation.

In the 358 sprint feature, Chad Trout grabbed the early race lead and built a comfortable lead. Point leader Kevin Nouse started 13th and was quickly into the top five.

Chandler Leiby took second spot from Jordan Givler with 10 laps to go and began to close on Trout.

The caution flag flew with six laps to go in the 20 lap feature. Nouse would slide by Leiby on the restart, but couldn’t catch Trout as he scored his first win of the season.

Doug Hammaker passed Leiby for third. Adrian Shaffer came from last to fifth.

Jordan Givler, Tony Smolenyak, Chris Arnold, Matt Findley and Scott Fisher completed the top 10.

Shaffer and Tony Smolenyak won the eight-lap heat races for the 20-car field.

ROOKIE OF-THE-YEAR WYATT HINKLE WINS FIRST CAREER 358 SPRINT FEATURE;

Hanover, PA (09/19/14) – Remember the name Wyatt Hinkle.

The 14-year-old from East Berlin entered the season planning to just run test and tune nights at area tracks and get prepared for 2015. He made a last minute decision to compete as a rookie at Trail-Way Speedway, and was among the lapped cars in the first several events.

Hinkle got better every week, and locked up rookie of-the-year honors last time out.

On Friday, he added the exclamation point, taking the lead from the pole and leading every lap for his first career sprint car win. And he did it in dramatic fashion, with his smoking Triple A Transport/Stoney Point Farm Market #19D holding off Seth Kearchner and Randy Whisler over the final five laps. His margin of victory in the thriller was a half car length over Kearchner.

“I started seeing Kearchner with three to go,” said a jubilant Hinkle in victory lane, “and not to mention that my motor was blowing up…”

Hinkle no doubt received another incentive to stay out front when he saw the #6R of track champ Brad McClelland pull into the infield on the first lap.

The race went non-stop in a time of 6 minutes, 11.94 seconds.

Another car length behind Kearchner was Whisler in third, with Dwight Leppo (season points runner-up) and Brian Eichelberger completing the top five.

Heats for the 11 “358” sprinters were won by McClelland and Leppo.

Mike Zielonis and Jim Young were winners in the double features for 1000cc “Sidewinder” micro-sprints.

Zielonis started second and led every lap of the non-stop first feature, establishing a new track record for 12 laps at 3 minutes, 14.03 seconds. Young came from seventh and last starting spot to pass both Brandon Yarlett and Rohan Beasley to advance from fourth to second on lap seven and finish in the runner-up spot, with Yarlett holding onto third.

Young came back to start on the pole and lead every lap of the second feature in a non-stop time of 3 minutes, 18.84 seconds. Beasley and Zach Overmiller rounded out the top three.

The 21-lap Lyle Adcock Memorial for Classic Cars went to first-time winner Steve Clemo.

Clemo started on the pole and led the first four laps before yielding to Ron Grove. Grove led the next five laps before spinning out in turn two, handing the lead back over to Clemo.

Clemo led the rest of the way, followed at the finish by Neal Reamer, Grove, Dorsey Weaver, and Vincent Crocker. They were the only cars running at the end.

Qualifiers for the nine Classic Cars were won by Matt Wallace and Clemo.

Cory Weishaar advanced from 11th to sixth following an opening lap melee, and went on to win the 15-lap limited stock feature.

Weishaar snatched the lead from Ricky Weaver, Jr. to become the fifth different leader of the event on lap six, and ran away to a 4.28-second win over Weaver, with Matt Chronister coming from the back after a first-lap spin to cross third. Terry Hartlaub (who started 14th) and Tom Senseney, Jr. rounded out the top five.

Heats for the 18 limited stocks were won by Robbie Carroll and Ricky Weaver, Jr.

Tomorrow (9/20), Trail-Way will host the Kevin Gobrecht Memorial race for the 600cc Micro Sprints, Mason-Dixon 270cc Micro Sprints, Central PA Legends, and ACMS 600 Stock Micro Sprints.

On Friday, October 3rd, Trail-Way will host the 16th Annual “Thunder on the Farm” featuring the 358 Late Models, Limited Stocks, and Street Stocks. The raindate will be the next day, Saturday, Oct. 4th.

FINAL POINTS RACE THIS SATURDAY, SEPT. 20

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Selinsgrove Speedway will present its first-ever $10,000-to-win race for 358-360 sprint cars at 7 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 27, as part of the 14th Annual Mach 1 Chassis National Open. Sprint car teams from the United Racing Company (URC) and Empire Super Sprint (ESS) traveling groups are expected to join the central Pennsylvania regulars to vie for the lucrative winner's share.

The purse for this year's 358-360 sprint car Open will exceed $35,000, with $5,000 being posted to finish second, $1,000 for a 10th-place finish, and $500 just to start the race. Time trials, double heats (points will be awarded), and B-mains will be the qualifying format for the A-main. Track gates will open at 5 p.m.

The rain date, if needed, will be Sunday, Sept. 28, with the time to be determined.

The 360 sprint car Open will conclude the track's 2014 racing season, which marked the inaugural year for the 360 sprint cars as the weekly headline open wheel division. To date, 16 races have produced eight different feature winners. Points leader Mark Smith of Sunbury leads the win column with six victories at the track, followed by three-time winner TJ Stutts of Liverpool.

Davie Franek of Wantage, N.J., is the only other repeat winner with two checkered flags. Single wins this season in 360 sprint car action include Aaron Ott of East Berlin; Brock Zearfoss of Jonestown; Ryan Kissinger of Bloomsburg; Cody Keller of Selinsgrove; and Robbie Stillwaggon of Burlington, N.J.

In 358-360 sprint car Open history at Selinsgrove Speedway, 13 races have produced eight different winners since 2001.

In 2012, Pat Cannon of Etters became the first three-time winner of the 358-360 sprint car Open. Cannon also scored victories in 2007 and 2008.

Logan Schuchart of Hanover drove to an impressive victory in the 2011 race. In 2010, Daryn Pittman of Owasso, Okla., was awarded the win when Cannon's race car was under the legal weight during the post-race inspection.

Heimbach won the 2005 Open and the rain-postponed 2009 edition of the Open that was run in the spring of 2010. Adrian Shaffer of Hallam was the Open champion in 2002, while Nate Snyder of Halifax took the victory in the 2004 race. Phil Walter of McClure took home the trophy in 2006.

FRANKIE HERR RECORDS 7TH LAWRENCE CHEVROLET SPORTSMAN 100 WIN;

Gene Knaub Dominates Again in 358 Late Model Action

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 9/13/14 – Frankie Herr continues to rewrite the super sportsman record books. From his fourth starting spot, Herr led 32 laps early, and then led the final 39 to record his seventh win in the prestigious 40th Annual Lawrence Chevrolet Sportsman 100 at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

Herr chased down outside frontrow starter and race long leader Mike Enders to take his first lead on lap 16 and paced the field through lap 48. Polesitter Gregg Foster had stayed with the leaders, Herr and Enders, through the first half of the 100 lap event and raced by Enders for second on lap 48 and then by Herr for the lead a lap later on lap 49.

Herr and Enders stayed with the race-leading Foster as the top-three raced though lapped traffic just past the halfway point of the 100-lap marathon. Herr got back around Foster for the lead on lap 61 and paced the field to the 70-lap break with Enders and 17th-starting Russ Mitten both keeping pace as the 70th-lap caution, signaled the break in the action.

All teams then headed to the pits for 10 minutes to work on their cars at the 70th lap break in the action’

But nobody had anything for Herr over the final 30-laps as he extended a 3-second lead to 9.53 seconds over the final 10 laps and took the checkered over eighth-starting Chad Criswell and Mitten for his second consecutive Sportsman 100 victory.

Enders, and 20th-starting Carmen Perigo, Jr. completed the top-five.

Rounding out the top10 were Doug Dodson, Bobby Hockenberry, Chad Smith, Paul Miller and Leroy Martin.

Early race contender Scott Geesey was running third when it appeared something broke on his can and turned hard into the third and fourth turn wall on lap 39 and flipped. Geesey was uninjured .

Including lap money, Herr took home $5,138 for his dominating performance which saw him lead 71 of the 100 laps run.

Super Sportsman qualifiers were won by Chad Smith and Tom Wykoff, with Devin Beidel winning the last chance race. Fast time in time trials over the 36-car field was Chad Criswell with a new one-lap track record time of 15.083-seconds (89.209 MPH).

For the second year in-a-row, Dover’s Gene Knaub followed up Frankie Herr’s Sportsman 100 win with his own in the 20-lap 358 Late Model feature.

Knaub, who started fourth, grabbed the lead from outside frontrow starting Kyle Martin on the second lap and never looked back en route to the 2.94-second win over Sam Gallagher, Martin, Ron Kline, and Charlie Schaffer.

Completing the top-10 were Les Hare, Travis Mease, Cam Zeigler, Tyler Horst, and Chaz Walls.

Heats for the “358" Late Models were won by Charlie Schaffer, Cam Zeigler, and Sam Gallagher

Lincoln will return to action next Saturday night, September 20th with the annual HANK GENTZLER MEMORIAL/MANUFACTURERS APPRECIATION RACE for the 410 Sprints. Rounding out the two division show will be the 358 Sprints. Time trials at 7 PM, with gates opening at 5 PM.

Hodnett Wires Field For 410 National Open Victory Cannon's Chase Falls Short, Finishes Second

SELINSGROVE, Pa. -- Fourth-place starter Greg Hodnett of Thomasville stormed into the lead at the drop of the green flag and wired the field for a convincing victory in Saturday night’s 44-lap Jim Nace Memorial 32nd Annual National Open for 410 sprint cars at Selinsgrove Speedway.

The $12,000 flag-to-flag win at the wheel of the Lelands.com No. 27 was Hodnett’s first of the year and 15th career at Selinsgrove and 10th overall this season in 410 sprint car racing. Hodnett joins Todd Shaffer of Millerstown as four-time winners of the Open.

Pat Cannon of Etters, who was attempting to become the first driver to win the Open four years in a row, finished in the second position.

Danny Holtgraver of Pittsburgh was the night’s Fast Tees Fast Qualifier with a lap time of 15.991 over the 28-car field.

Jeff Rine of Danville scored his sixth win of the season in the 25-lap super late model feature. The victory was Rine’s 91st career at the track and strengthens his points lead over Steve Campbell of Danville in the close chase for the championship.

The start of the racing program was delayed by 90 minutes while the track crew prepped the saturated speedway surface from rain showers that ended about 2:30 p.m.

Selinsgrove Speedway will present the final points race of the season for the 360 sprint cars, late models, pro stocks, and roadrunners at 7 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 20. The 14th Annual Mach 1 Chassis National Open for 360 sprint cars will close out the season at 7 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 27.

On the start of the sprint car feature, fourth-place starter Greg Hodnett pulled off a breathtaking move using the highline off turn four to take the early lead while second-place starter Justin Barger and polesitter Danny Holtgraver held down the top three positions.

By lap five, Hodnett was already beginning to encounter slower traffic as he soared around the half-mile oval at breakneck speeds. A lap seven caution flag for a flat tire on Steve Buckwalter’s car regrouped the field.

On the ensuing restart, Hodnett quickly stretched his lead again over the field. On the ninth circuit, 16th-place starter TJ Stutts flipped wildly out over the fourth turn guardrail. Stutts escaped injury.

When the race resumed, seventh-place starter Pat Cannon made an exciting drive around the top of the track in turns one and two to take over the third position. A lap later, Cannon stormed into the second spot and started gaining real estate on the leader. The caution flag unfurled again on lap 16 when Aaron Ott’s car blew a tire in turn four.

On the lap 17 restart, 18th-place starter Lucas Wolfe powered into the top five and showed a lot of speed. The race was halted on lap 22 for a scheduled fuel stop.

At the start of the second half of the race, Hodnett continued his dominating performance while Cannon struggled with lapped traffic. With 10 laps remaining, however, Cannon started to reel in Hodnett and at one point closed the gap to nearly 1.5 seconds. The final caution flag waved on lap 40 when Wolfe’s car rolled to a stop in turn four with a broken nose wing, ending an impressive drive from deep in the field.

For the final four laps, Hodnett streaked around the oval and posted a 5.6 second margin of victory over Cannon, Holtgraver, Barger, and ninth-place starter Brent Marks.

Second-place starter Tim Wilson powered into the lead at the start of the super late model feature. On the first circuit, sixth-place starter Tony Adams horsepowered his way into the runner-up position and set his sights on Wilson.

The race’s first caution flag unfurled on lap nine when Jim Bernheisel’s car stopped in the second turn. On the lap 10 restart, 10th-place starter Jeff Rine advanced to second and chased Wilson for the lead. On the 15th circuit, Wilson’s car blew an engine and rolled to a stop in turn four.

For the restart, Rine inherited the lead with Adams in tow. In the final laps of the race, Rine stretched his lead and posted a five-second margin of victory over Adams, polesitter Pancho Lawler, eighth-place starter Andy Haus, and seventh-place starter Bryan Bernheisel.

McCLELLAND WINS FEATURE AND TRACK TITLE IN TRAIL-WAY 358’S;

Hanover, PA (09/12/14) – Brad McClelland took home all the prizes in Friday night’s 30-lap Trone Outdoor Advertising “358” sprint car championship at Trail-Way Speedway.

The Westminster, MD superstar came from eighth starting spot to claim the hard-charger award, win his ninth race of the year, and claim another Trail-Way track title.

And again, the McClelland driving clinic made it look much easier than it was.

“I was getting loose and the car was bottoming out,” said McClelland in victory lane.

Not to mention the fact that he got together with Isaac Sneeringer while racing for the lead in turn two of lap 21, rolling over the right rear wheel of Sneeringer and bouncing off the wall.

Sneeringer came to a stop in turn three with a flat right rear, bringing out the only caution flag of the event. But Sneeringer’s throttle was also stuck, and he dropped from the event.

Sneeringer’s misfortune ended a night which saw him come from sixth starting spot to the lead by lap two. He was nearly a half-lap ahead of the rest of the field by the time he reached lapped traffic on lap eight.

Though McClelland saved it and assumed the lead for the lap 21 restart, his right rear tire went down in victory lane, and needed towed back to the pits.

“I knew lapped traffic would be a factor,” said McClelland, “But I was happy to chase him down. Heck, at one point I didn’t even see him!”

“I want to thank John Trone for sponsoring this race,” McClelland continued, “He’s sponsored a big race every year since the 358’s started running here.”

Dwight Leppo started fifth and crossed second, with seventh-starting Jeff Rohrbaugh, Cody Fletcher, and rookie Tyler Buchenauer rounding out the top five.

Heats for the 15 “358” sprint cars were won by Rohrbaugh and McClelland.

Steve Cox came also came from eighth starting spot to win in the 20-lap 270cc micro-sprint feature. And, like McClelland, he claimed the track title with the win.

But Cox’s championship was a little more dramatic. He was fourth in a close points chase heading into the race, and his win combined with Brian Marriot’s fourth-place finish gave Cox the title by a single point over Marriott. Marriott actually returned from the rear after tipping onto his side while racing for second in turn two of lap ten. Jim Still and Cory Myers were second and third in points. Still started near the back and finished sixth. Myers was running second when he slowed to a stop on lap 18, ending his night.

Twelfth-starting Joe Trone, Jr. and Bill Laughman crossed second and third, with Michael Boer finishing fifth.

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

Not to be outdone, Dan Furman also won both the feature and track title in the street stocks.

And to add drama, he started last and took the lead in a wild three-car battle for the front spot on lap 11. Just after Furman took the lead, Jeremy Stremmel and Michael Goodwin collided while racing for second, with Stremmel heading to the pits and Goodwin (who led laps six through ten) rejoining at the rear.

Furman’s final margin of victory was a whopping 5.82 seconds over Goodwin, with Brian Blank, Jr., Joey Harrison, and Kelly Seal III the only other cars running at the end.

Heats for the 11 street stocks were won by Stremmel and Goodwin.

Terry Hartlaub broke the night’s pattern by claiming his first win of the year in the 15-lap limited stock feature. Hartlaub started fourth and led every lap.

Shane Miller, Tom Senseney, Cody Klinedinst, and Ricky Weaver, Jr. completed the top five.

Heats for the 24 limited stocks were won by Julio Perez, Hartlaub, and Shane Miller.

Hartlaub won his heat after passing turn three inspection of his rear hood, when his car entered the track carrying half of a hotdog and a piece of pizza.

Tomorrow (9/20), Trail-Way will host a A.M.A. Motorcycle short-track event. Gates open at 3 p.m. with racing beginning at 6 p.m.

Next Friday (9/19), Trail-Way will host the 358 Sprint Cars, 1000cc Sidewinder Sprints, Limited Stocks, and the Classic Cars will be here for the Lyle Adcock Memorial. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. and racing begins at 7:30 p.m.

Saturday (9/20), Trail-Way will host the Kevin Gobrecht Memorial race for the 600cc Micro Sprints, Mason-Dixon 270cc Micro Sprints, Central PA Legends, and ACMS 600 Stock Micro Sprints.

The 16th Annual “Thunder on the Farm” event has been moved from its originally scheduled date to Friday, October 3rd to eliminate a conflict with Susquehanna Speedway Park. The event will still feature the 358 Late Models, Limited Stocks, and Street Stocks.

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 falls.

Westhafer & Montieth Win Williams Grove Super Sprints, Nouse Gets Fifth In 358s

9/12/14

Mechanicsburg – Rodney Westhafer of Mechanicsburg held off Lance Dewease to win the make up Billy Kimmel Memorial for 410 sprints at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, scoring his first ever 410 sprint main at the track.

In the regularly slated 410 sprint main, Brian Montieth got around Westhafer to prevent him from making a clean sweep of the night’s features while Kevin Nouse won his fifth 358 sprint main of the season at the track.

Westhafer led from the outset of the Kimmel feature, run as the first event on the program.

Cory Haas gave chase early with Alan Krimes and Ryan Smith in tow as Westhafer began working lapped traffic on the 12th tour.

Smith was up to third with 10 laps to go when a yellow flag regrouped the field, finding Montieth and Dewease rounding out the top five.

Dewease shot around Montieth on the restart and then Smith with eight laps to go before taking over second with five laps to go.

The Fayetteville flyer then drove down Westhafer’s advantage but seemingly had run out of time to take over the lead when instead of the checkered flag the yellow flag unfurled again with less than a lap to go for debris on the backstretch.

Westhafer held his line in the first and second turns on the restart, keeping Dewease at bay but as the pair shot toward the third corner Dewease was poised for a move.

But Westhafer shot across the bottom of the track to protect from a deep flyer, which proved to be a winning move as he thwarted Dewease’s attempt and pulled up out of the corner to take the hard fought victory by .148 seconds over Dewease.

Greg Hodnett rode home third followed by Smith and Brent Marks.

Sixth through 10th went to Don Kreitz Jr., Haas, Krimes, Nicole Bower and Brian Montieth.

Glenndon Forsythe took the lead at the start of the regularly slated 410 sprint feature and saw Westhafer drive into second on the second tour.

With Forsythe running the top, Westhafer pounded his bottom groove, keeping pace with Forsythe but struggling to complete a pass.

Meanwhile, ninth starter Montieth was working forward, zooming around the cushion and took over third on the ninth tour.

The rapid race pace was slowed on the 11th lap for a stopped Brock Zearfoss and the restart saw a wild three-car race for control take place.

As the leaders headed for the completion of the 14th lap, Westhafer finally got the run off of the bottom out of the second turn that he was looking for and he drove by Forsythe for control but at the same time, Montieth likewise got a run he needed and he drove even lower on the track as the trio entered the third corner, trying to take the lead with a two car pass.

But the near three wide move for control saw Forsythe shoot toward the top of the track in front of the field, losing control and causing another yellow flag to unfurl.

This gave the lead to Westhafer who just like before over Dewease held his ground over Montieth this time in the first and second turns.

But the third and fourth turns would be a different story this time as Montieth overtook the leader to gain control with 10 laps to go and cruise to this second Williams Grove win of the season.

Westhafer settled for a fine second followed by Alan Krimes, Haas and Dewease.

Sixth through 10th went to Don Kreitz Jr., Ryan Smith, Greg Hodnett, Brent Marks and Austin Hogue.

Heats for the 31-car field went to Smith, Dewease, Krimes and Westhafer with Brock Zearfoss claiming the consolation race.

Kevin Nouse motored from the ninth starting spot in the 20-lap 358 sprint main up to fourth on the first lap as Scott Fisher took control.

Nouse moved into third on the second circuit and then was forced to watch veteran Rich Eichelberger try to overtake Fisher for the lead.

It took until the halfway point for Nouse to finally find an opening to weave through in order to put Eichelberger behind him and after getting by for second he made quick work of Fisher for the lead with seven laps to go.

Adrian Shaffer took over second from Fisher with three to go.

Doug Hammaker got around Fisher for third at the finish with Fisher ending up fourth and Eichelberger fading to fifth.

Heats for the 21-car field went to Nouse, Chandler Leiby and Shaffer.

32ND ANNUAL NATIONAL OPEN FOR 410 SPRINT CARS HONORS THE MEMORY OF SPRINT CAR CHAMPION JIM NACE

Late Models Also Scheduled To Compete

Selinsgrove Speedway will honor the memory of the track’s only five-time sprint car champion Jim Nace with the running of this Saturday’s (Sept. 13) 32nd Annual National Open for 410 sprint cars sponsored by Selinsgrove Ford. Track gates will open at 5 p.m. and qualifying is slated to begin at 7 p.m.

The Nace Memorial National Open will be a 44-lap tribute race paying $12,000 to win and $500 to start out of a total purse in excess of $40,000. The Fast Tees Fast Time Award will pay $300.

Joining the 410 sprint cars on this Saturday’s racing card will be the super late models in a 25-lap main event paying $1,500 to win. The rain date, if needed, will be 6 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 14, for sprint cars only.

A special edition National Open t-shirt, produced by Fast Tees, will be on sale this weekend. The Nace family will have various memorabilia from Jim Nace’s racing career on display inside the main gate. An autograph session including many of central Pennsylvania’s top sprint car drivers is also scheduled to take place behind the covered grandstand 5:30-6 p.m.

In recent years, race fans, teams, and officials have come to call the National Open “The Nace Race.” The 2014 edition marks the fifth straight year the race is named in memory of Nace, who died in November 2009 following a seven-year battle with cancer.

Pat Cannon of Etters, who joined the late Maynard Yingst of Linglestown as only the second driver to win three consecutive National Opens with a victory in last year’s race, will be seeking his first win of 2014 in the Sept. 13 event.

Fred Rahmer of Salfordville, who turned in a thrilling second-place finish in last year’s race before retiring from driving at the end of the season, is the track’s only five-time winner of the Open. Rahmer’s victories in the Open occurred in 1995, 1996, 1997, 1999 and 2000. Todd Shaffer of Millerstown is second on the Open career win list with four championships in 1993, 1994, 2001 and 2008.

Yingst’s wins in the Open occurred in 1983, 1984, and 1985. Other past repeat winners include Greg Hodnett of Thomasville (1998, 2004, 2007), 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); Lucas Wolfe of Mechanicsburg (2005); and Chad Layton of Harrisburg (2006).

The National Open will mark the third appearance of the season by the 410 sprint cars at Selinsgrove Speedway. This year’s previous races were won by Blane Heimbach of Selinsgrove (March 23 Season Opener) and Brent Marks of Myerstown (July 6 PA Speedweek Finale).

Hodnett Wins Fourth Port Royal Tuscarora 50, Lafferty Earns Port Track Title

Dave Leidy gets econo late main

9/6/14

Port Royal – Greg Hodnett of Thomasville made a bold first lap, thread the needle move to take the lead in Saturday’s 47th annual Tuscarora 50 for 410 sprints at Port Royal Speedway to trump the field for the fourth 50 checkers of his career worth over $13,000.

Hodnett started fourth in the deep field that was whittled down from 41 entries in the All Stars event, with Danny Holtgraver and Lynton Jeffrey on the front row for the green flag.

And when the field roared down the frontchute into the first turn, Hodnett hung with his high line around the top and blasted to the outside of Pittsburgh’s Holtgraver as he came off of the second corner.

With Holtgraver racing just a car length or so behind pacesetter Jeffrey, Hodnett first got alongside Holtgraver and then weaved his No. 27 through the hole between the pair of leaders to drop to the inside of Jeffrey as the pair raced toward the backstretch scoreboard.

A battle of wills then found Hodnett throttling deep under Jeffrey as the pair entered the third turn to force Jeffrey up the track and give himself control of the event as the first lap was recorded.

A yellow flag regrouped the field with six laps down for debris on the backstretch, finding Hodnett holding sway over Jeffrey, Holtgraver, sixth starter Dale Blaney and eighth starter Dave Blaney.

The Blaney brothers prior to that time had blasted with relative ease into the top five while slinging around the top of the track.

The restart saw Dale Blaney overtake Holtgraver and then Jeffrey with eight down to take over second while brother Dave worked into third on the same circuit with 10th starter Stevie Smith now up to fourth.

Hodnett entered the rear of the field with 11 laps completed chased by Dale Blaney and Smith who was up to third.

It took until the 20th circuit for Smith to motor by Dale Blaney for second as the field negotiated heavy lapped traffic and shortly thereafter the lap 25 mandatory break for refueling reset the field.

However by this time, the track had begun to develop a strip laden with rubber around the inside of the oval due to tire wear, taking the edge off of the final 25 tours of the event.

Hodnett restarted with a pair of lapped cars separating himself from Smith, Dale Blaney, ninth starter Lance Dewease and Holtgraver.

The top five would continue running in that order until very near the end of the event when Dale Blaney’s motor began to sour, dropping him backward dramatically.

It was at that point that Dewease took over third, where he would finish, followed by Holtgraver and Lucas Wolfe.

Hodnett’s margin of victory in the prestigious event was 2.053 seconds over Friday night winner Stevie Smith.

The Thomasville speedster previously scored Tuscarora 50 laurels in 1998 and 2004 while driving for Bob Stewart in the No. 12 and again in 2009 while at the wheel of the No. 22 for Jim and Sandy Kline.

His 2014 victory tied him atop the Tuscarora 50 all time win list with four victories, joining other four time champions Dewease, Fred Rahmer and Doug Wolfgang.

The victory was a career first in the event for Hodnett’s current car owner Mike Heffner, who called the Tuscarora 50 checkers the biggest of his car ownership career.

Sixth through 10th in the event went to Ryan Smith, Blane Heimbach, Mike Erdley, Rick Lafferty and Brent Marks.

Lafferty closed the night by claiming the 2014 sprint car track title by a scant 10-point margin over Erdley.

Heats for the field went to Hodnett, Lafferty, Jeffrey and Dewease with Rodney Westhafer scoring the B Main.

Chad Layton earned a provisional starting spot in the event as the highest driver in Port Royal points who was running at the end of the B Main but who failed to qualify.

As the highest finishing Port Royal regular who failed to qualify in the B, Logan Wagner earned the $500 16th annual Will Gamble Memorial Determination Award in honor of the late speedway enthusiast.

Joey Hershey earned over $350 in honor of late speedway supporter Al Battista for crossing the feature finish line as the lowest finishing Port Royal regular in the 50 field.

Dale Blaney earned $300 for the Packer’s Concessions Fast Time Award after positing a lap in time trials of 16.776 seconds.

Dave Leidy led all 15 laps of the 355 econo late model feature with Andrew Yoder finishing second.

Trent Brenneman trailed Leidy for nearly the entire race before close racing quarters on the final lap found him yielding to Yoder for the second spot.

Brenneman rode home third followed by Eric Irvin and Tim Krape.

Krape sealed the 2014, inaugural track title for the new division.

Heats for the econos went to Krape and Shaun Miller.

LINCOLN SPEEDWAY

Abbottstown, PA

UPCOMING SHOWS:

Sat., September 13, 2014 (Time Trials @ 7 PM) – 40TH ANNUAL LAWRENCE CHEVROLET SPORTSMAN 100 for Super Sportsman, plus 358 Late Models

LINCOLN LOSES TO RAIN; CHASE DIETZ CLAIMS FIRST TRACK TITLE IN 358 SPRINTS;

Night #2 of Trail-Way/Lincoln 358 Sprint Shootout postponed to September 2oth;

PASS Racesaver 305 Sprints added to September 20th show

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 9/6/2014 – Lincoln Speedway gave it the ole’ college try Saturday, running in the track after a mid-afternoon rainfall and sitting through a lightning delay as the three divisions of race cars were getting ready to come out for warm-ups.

But persistent rainfall coupled with another band of rain off to the west forced promoters to cancel Saturday’s program shortly after 7:00 p.m.

Because Saturday’s event was to be the final points race of the season, Chase Dietz locked up his first-ever 358 sprint car track title over 2013 track champ Niki Young, who finished 95 points behind. Had the race been run, Dietz would have had to finish 18th or better to claim the title. Third through fifth in season points were Chandler Leiby, Matt Campbell, and lady driver Brie Hershey. Another female driver, Ashley Cappetta, finished the season sixth in points.

The second leg of the Trail-Way/Lincoln Shootout was postponed to the next 358 sprint car show on September 20th, and the PA Sprint Series Racesaver 305 sprints will make up their portion of the program on the same date (9/20).

Lincoln swings back in action next Saturday night, September 13th, with the 40TH ANNUAL LAWRENCE CHEVROLET SPORTSMAN 100 for the Super Sportsman, plus 358 Late Models. Gates will open at 5 PM, with super sportsman time trials scheduled to start at 7 PM.

McCLELLAND SCORES EIGHTH TRAIL-WAY WIN OF THE YEAR IN 358 SPRINTS;

Hanover, PA (09/05/14) – “We got lucky again.”

So say a lot of winners in victory lane. But Brad McClelland was right.

McClelland drew the pole for the first leg of the Trail-Way/Lincoln 358 Shootout, and led every lap of Friday night’s 25-lap feature event.

“The track was outstanding…the best it’s been all year,” said the Central PA 358 point series leader after scoring his eighth Trail-Way win of the year, “We’ve had a real good season, and my crew always has an awesome car for me to race.”

The only issue McClelland had to deal with was lapped traffic through the first 18 non-stop laps, and even they didn’t seem to bother him.

“The lapped cars were real good,” said McClelland, “This one was easy tonight.”

McClelland’s final margin of victory over second-place Mike Bittinger was 2.69 seconds.

Cody Fletcher, ninth-starting Jeff Rohrbaugh (hard charger), and Jeff Halligan completed the top five.

The only caution of the event came out on lap 19 for Shane Smith, who slowed on the front stretch and came to a stop in turn one. During the caution, Isaac Sneeringer pulled to the infield.

Heats for the 16 “358” sprinters were won by Zach Euculano and Randy Whisler.

Picking up his fifth straight personal win, Tyler Walton came from eighth starting spot to win both the 600cc micro-sprint feature and the Path Valley/Trail-Way Mid-Summer Shootout.

Walton, who also won the Path Valley event last Saturday night, took the lead from Arron Spahr on lap 15 and led the rest of the way, crossing 1.97 seconds ahead of Spahr at the finish.

Third through fifth were Travis Scott, ninth-starting Brad Weber, and Bo Gordon.

Weber’s fourth-place finish was good enough to earn the 2014 Trail-Way 600cc micro-sprint title and second place overall in the Shootout.

Third through fifth in the Shootout itself were Anthony Macri, Jim Young, and Spahr.

Qualifiers for the 21 micros were won by Young, David Holbrook, and Alyson Dietz.

Harlon Leppo, in his first Trail-Way appearance of the year, started on the pole and led every lap of the 20-lap Central PA Legends feature.

Hard charger Lucas Montgomery came from tenth starting spot to finish second, with Chris McKinney, Travis McClelland, and Bob Stough rounding out the top five.

Heats for the 18 Legends were won by McClelland and Montgomery.

Kyle Rohrbaugh claimed his second win of the year in the 15-lap limited stock feature.

Rohrbaugh started tenth, took the lead from Justin Oberlin in a three-wide battle for the lead in turn four of lap seven, and held off Kenny Startzman by 1.06 seconds at the finish.

Third through fifth were 12th-starting Matt Chronister, 14th-starting Shane Miller, and Oberlin.

Qualifiers for the 18 limited stocks were won by Shannon Weaver and Jeff Foster.

Next Friday (9/12), Trail-Way will host the 358 Sprint Cars for the $2,000 to win Trone Outdoor Championship. Also on the schedule are the Limited Stocks, Street Stocks, and Mason-Dixon 270cc Micro Sprints. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. and racing begins at 7:30 p.m.

Stevie Smith Claims Port Royal All Star Night Before The Tuscarora 50

Point Chase Tighter Than Ever For Lafferty, Erdley, Layton And Heimbach

9/5/14

Port Royal – Stevie Smith overtook Doug Esh and drove to his second career Night Before The Tuscarora 50 sprint car victory on Friday night at Port Royal Speedway, worth $5,000.

A native of Hanover, Smith’s first win in the event was back in 2010 while his All Stars win on Friday night gave him an even dozen in the all time Port Royal record books.

In the 20-lap super late model main, Selinsgrove’s Dylan Yoder became the first repeat winner of the season in the division, scoring the victory in the final show of the year at the track for the super stock cars.

Doug Esh and Danny Holtgraver took the All Star Circuit of Champions Sprints feature green from the front row in what would end up being a 30-lap non-stop feature event.

Esh was holding sway over the field when Smith got by Holtgraver for second on the eighth tour as the front-runners negotiated heavy traffic at the rear of the field.

Lancaster’s Esh, in his first night back after a nasty crash last Saturday night at the track, began struggling with the lapped traffic and that’s all it took for Smith to go out in front with 11 laps completed.

As Esh began slipping backward, Holtgraver went into second on the 13th tour and began giving chase of the new leader.

With Smith on the bottom and middle grooves, Holtgraver began slinging his No. 10H around the high side of the speedway and with 10 to go the Pittsburgh pilot appeared ready to overtake Smith for the lead.

And indeed on a few occasions he was able to draw alongside the leader’s No. 51 but Smith was just good enough on the bottom of the track to keep pace with Holtgraver during his challenges before getting away with his lead during the final five circuits.

Monday’s Labor Day winner, Danny Dietrich surged around Holtgraver with a lap to go but ran out of time to run down Smith for the win.

Holtgraver held on for third followed by 10th starter Dale Blaney and Blane Heimbach.

Sixth through 10th went to 13th starter Greg Hodnett, 19th starter Lance Dewease, Brent Marks, Mike Erdley and Esh.

Heats for the 41-car field went to Curt Stroup, Marks, Lynton Jeffrey and Chad Layton.

Lucas Wolfe set quick time in qualifications with a lap of 16.258 seconds and won the B Main.

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

With the final race looming in the 2014 point chase as the Saturday night Tuscarora 50, Rick Lafferty leads the standings by 15 markers over Mike Erdley, with Layton 30 out of the lead followed by Heimbach who is just 65 back.

Last week’s feature winner, Justin Kann led the first three laps of the super late model main before fourth starter Dylan Yoder took over.

Shortly after he got control, Yoder’s pace was slowed for a caution period but he was clearly in control for the balance of the event.

Instead, racing for second, third and four spots heated up with Kann spinning out of second at the halfway point.

Rance Garlock inherited second for the restart and then held off Mitch Hack for the spot.

Chad Hollenbeck was fourth followed by Mike Lupfer.

Sixth through 10th went to Andy Haus, Tim Wilson, Jim Yoder, Brett Schadel and Jeff Rine.

By virtue of starting the feature event, Shermansdale’s Lupfer officially sealed up the 2014 track title for the division.

It is the pilots first Port Royal track crown.

Heats for the 26-car field went to Kann, Lupfer and Garlock with Waylon Wagner taking the consolation race.

Fast time in time trials was set by Dylan Yoder with a lap of 18.688 seconds.

Port Royal Point Title On The Line In Tuscarora 50 Races Friday & Saturday!

Trio Should Fight It Out, Four Drivers In Contention

9/1/14

Port Royal – The advent of this weekend’s Tuscarora 50 sprint car races at Port Royal Speedway will determine who is the 2014 track titlist and the title fight couldn’t be any closer as the races draw near.

After Monday’s Labor Day Classic for the sprints at Port Royal, both Rick Lafferty and Chad Layton are tied for the point lead with 4,825 markers.

Both men have a win at the historic oval already this season.

Harrisburg’s Layton is already a two-time Port Royal rack champion, having scored the laurels for Middleswarth racing in 2010 and in 2012.

If he would be able to take over the point lead and claim the crown with the conclusion of this weekend’s All Stars Sprints races, it would be an unprecedented eighth career track title for his car owner, Dave Middleswarth.

Aside from Layton’s two titles, the Middleswarth stables garnered crowns with Keith Kauffman as their driver at the track in 1999, 2001, 2002, 2004 and 2007.

Middleswarth already holds the distinction of being the most successful car owner in the sprint car track title category at the oval and a triumph by Layton this weekend would just add to the team’s legacy.

Lafferty, a self-owned racer from Pennington, Nj., is looking for a first ever track title however after taking over the point lead from Mike Wagner at the track on August 30.

It would be quite a feather in Lafferty’s career cap to tie up the crown with the running of the 50 races this Friday and Saturday.

Traditionally, Lafferty has performed better than Layton on slick track surfaces like the one that the Port Royal oval usually produces over the course of the 50 events.

And not to be counted out at this point is 2006 track champion Mike Erdley of Elizabethville, who sits just 50 points out of the lead coming into the weekend.

Erdley too sometimes excels at slick track surfaces and on the heels of his car owner’s just released retirement announcement effective at the end of the season, the Cinderella story of the Tuscarora 50 weekend at Port Royal lays in his hands.

A 50-point deficit is certainly not insurmountable as the point lead has changed by at least that margin during each of the last two races contested so a come-from-behind title for the mild-mannered, Dauphin County pilot Erdley and his owner Randy Lisi is a very legitimate possibility.

Defending track champion Blane Heimbach currently sits fourth in season points, at a 120-point deficit to the tied leaders.

A bad night by any or all of the previously mentioned trio could thrust Heimbach right back to the top of the standings, a position he held for over three-quarters of the 2014 season since it began in April.

The All Star Circuit of Champions Sprints will be in attendance for both nights of 50 weekend action as part of the climax of the 160th annual Juniata County Fair that surrounds the speedway.

Friday’s Night Before The 50 sprint car program will pay the winner $5,000 to win the 30 lap feature event and $400 just to start.

Packer’s Concessions of Centre Hall is sponsoring a $200 fast time award for the fastest Night Before The 50 qualifier in time trials.

The super late models are also on the Friday card with group time trials slated in warm ups.

Saturday’s 47th annual running of the Tuscarora 50 will see a total event purse of some $42,000 posted for the sprinters including a paid B Main.

Sponsored by Ramsey’s Car Washes, the Tuscarora 50 main event will pay $12,000 to win and $500 just to start.

Each lap of the Tuscarora 50 will pay $25 to lead and the Packer’s Concessions fast timer for the 50 will receive a $300 cash award.

The econo lates will join the 410 sprints for the 50, racing in a special, rare, topless event.

Admission to the Juniata County Fair that surrounds the speedway is FREE both nights with adult race general admission priced at $25 on Friday and $30 on Saturday. Students ages 12 – 18 are admitted to the races for JUST $5 both nights.

Camping is available adjacent to the fairgrounds for the economical flat price of only $30, regardless of length of stay.

Gates for both racing programs will open at 4 pm.

Dietrich Excites For Port Royal Labor Day Sprint Car $4,000 Victory

Yoder and Moist claim stock cars

9/1/14

Port Royal – Danny Dietrich of Gettysburg won the 63rd annual Labor Day Classic for 410 sprint cars at Port Royal Speedway on Monday afternoon, becoming the third and final leader in the event that saw a total of four lead changes.

In the 355 econo late feature it was Middleburg’s Andrew Yoder who dominated for the victory to record his fourth oval win of the season while Andrew Moist came out on top in the four cylinder main event.

A draw put two-time Labor Day Champion on the pole for the start of the 25-lap Classic event with two-time Port Royal 2014 winner Brent Marks alongside. Just behind in row two was Dietrich and four-time and defending Classic champion Lance Dewease.

Just as the feature green unfurled rains hit the third and fourth corner of the speedway, causing an abrupt stoppage of the race.

After a delay of about an hour, Hodnett took the lead over a fast starting Dewease when action got underway.

A caution flag regrouped the field with three laps down and on the restart Lance Dewease powered around Hodnett to take control.

Dewease’s run at the front looked at first solid but quickly found him struggling on the daytime surface and Hodnett drove underneath in the first and second corner to reclaim control on the 10th tour.

A lap later, the only driver who was running the top of the track, Dietrich motored by Dewease for second and began running down a stellar-running Hodnett.

Dietrich was right at home using the high outside, ever-slickening groove, rooster-tailing at times as he chased Hodnett through traffic.

And then with a little more than eight laps to go he surged to Hodnett’s outside as the pair ran down the backchute and shot through the middle entering the third corner to take over Hodnett’s bottom groove and the lead.

After getting control, Dietrich continued to take chances with his lead and nearly gave up control after a brush with the outside wall but he soon went back to the bottom to maintain his advantage.

With a lap to go, a final yellow set up a restart but Dietrich pulled away on the restart for the prestigious $4,000 victory, his first ever at the track and seventh overall of the season.

Hodnett was second followed by Dewease, Marks and Mike Erdley.

Sixth through 10th went tot Chad Layton, Dave Ely, Blane Heimbach, Logan Wagner and Billy Dietrich.

Heats for the 24-car field went to Dietrich, Hodnett and Marks.

Rick Lafferty entered the race with the season point lead over Layton but after a finish of 16th, both he and Layton are now tied at the top of the chase for the title with Erdley just 50 points back.

Andrew Yoder wired the field for the 15-lap econo late model main.

Jason Nace trailed early but gave way to one-time winner Dave Leidy with under five laps to go .

Nace held on to third with a hard charging, 12th starter Tim Krape finishing fourth and Todd Snook ending up fifth.

Heats for the 14-car field went to Leidy and Ralph Morgan Jr.

A 27-car field of four cylinder stock cars competed on the Labor Day clay and after working forward the entire 15-lap main from the ninth starting spot, Andrew Moist powered into the lead with just two laps left in the race.

The event was riddled with caution flags while also producing exciting action.

Ricky Weaver Jr. led from the outset before Ryan Peer took control on the seventh tour.

Weaver went back out in front with five laps left and then fell victim to Peer again with three to go before Moist upended them all for the victory.

Lee Zook, Weaver, Peer and Cale Martin rounded out the top five finshers.

Heats went to Josh Frantz, Weaver and Terry Hartlouv.

Williams Grove Loses Sunday Mains To Rain, Make Up Dates Announced

9/1/14

Mechanicsburg - The 410 sprint and super sportsman features were rained out at Williams Grove Speedway on Sunday night, August 31.

After all qualifying had been completed and the features were ready to roll, rains hit forcing cancellation of the balance of the program.

Because all qualifying had been completed, no rain checks will be issued.

Thus, make up features for the sportsman and sprints have now been slated.

The super sportsman feature will be run this Friday, September 5 at 7:30 pm along with the already scheduled program of 358 sprints and topless limited late models.

The 410 sprint main has been scheduled to be part of the full racing program of 358 sprints and 410 sprints coming up at the track on Friday, September 12.

Moments before the start of the 25-lap 410 Sprint Car feature on Sunday night, a torrential rainstorm struck the track. After a 15-minute wait speedway officials postponed the 410 Sprint Car main and the Super Sportsman feature.

The 410 Sprint Car starting field was entering the third turn when a driving storm struck the speedway.

Before the rain’s arrival fans watched six qualifying races. Bill Stine, Ryan Smith and Rodney Westhafer won the heats for the 25 410 Sprint cars. The preliminary races for the 24 Super Sportsman went to Rich Eichelberger, Scott Geesey and Mike Enders.

Barger Holds Off Hodnett For Sprints Win

Snook and Goodwin claim companion stock car events

8/30/14

Port Royal – Justin Kann of Hesston took just shy of $4,000 out of Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night, claiming the annual Butch Renninger Memorial for super late models as the kickoff race to the 160th annual Juniata County Fair.

In the 410 sprint main, Justin Barger of Montrose, Ny., recorded his first ever payday at the track after holding off Greg Hodnett.

The 15-lap econo late main was taken by Todd Snook for his third win of the season while Mike Goodwin scored the xtreme stock main event.

Jeff Miller Sr. started on the pole of the 33-lap Renninger Memorial, run in honor of the late three-time track champion.

Miller took the lead over third starter Kann when the race got started and was being chased by Kann when he entered the rear of the field on the 12th tour.

Miller slipped a bit on the turn two cushion amid heavy traffic on the 14th tour and that was all it took for Kann to take advantage and bolt into the lead.

Up to that point, Miller pocketed $429 in lap money.

A lap after giving up the lead to Kann, Miller looped his car in the second turn, bringing out the races first caution flag.

Kann restarted with Andy Haus and 12th starter Brett Schadel in pursuit.

Kann pulled his No. 66 away from any challengers when action resumed and appeared home free with four laps to go when the final yellow of the event unfurled for a stopped Eric Zembower.

By this time Mike Lupfer was up to third but no one had anything for Kann over the final two miles.

Including lap money and the fast time award, Kann walked away from the race with $3,993 plus other prizes and contingencies.

It was his first career win at the track and he became the 146th driver to claim a late model main at the oval.

Andy Haus rode home third followed by Mike Lupfer, Tim Smith Jr. and Schadel.

Sixth through 10th went to Patrick Bryner, Mitch Hack, Jason Schmidt, Waylon Wagner and Scott Flickinger.

Heats for the 21-car field went to Hack, Wagner and Haus with Kann setting fast time in qualifications with a lap of 18.416 seconds.

Barger started on the pole of the 410 sprint main and was chased by Nate Snyder when the race began but only two laps could be recorded before Lance Dewease slowed in the second corner, bringing out the yellow flag.

On the restart sixth starter Greg Hodnett made a two car pass of Rodney Westhafter and Davey Sammons to zoom into third.

Barger began lapping cars on the 10th tour and a lap later Hodnett bolted under Snyder for the second spot.

Hodnett was in hot pursuit of Barger, mounting a challenge when the final caution of the race occurred.

Hodnett stayed close to Barger on the restart and made attempts at low side moves but Barger was smooth and confident on the cushion to the finish, again entering traffic with less than five laps to go but clearing the cars just quick enough to keep Hodnett at arm’s length to the checkers.

Rick Lafferty rode home third and took over the division point lead followed by Snyder and Sammons.

Chad Layton was sixth followed by Brock Zearfoss, Brent Marks, Westhafer and Ryan Taylor.

Heats for the 28 cars in action went to Barger, Snyder and Sammons with Mark Zimmerman taking the consolation.

The second heat race was marred by a vicious crash in the first turn that saw Doug Esh slam the inside barrier and Mike Wagner smash into the outside wall before bouncing back onto the track and impacting Esh hard. Dave Hahn was also involved.

All drivers seemingly escaped injury and Wagner crawled into his son Logan’s car for the consolation in an effort to keep his title hopes alive as the point leader coming into the event.

But the start of the consolation saw Curt Stroup clout the inside turn two barrier before glancing back onto the track with Wagner making more hard impact, bringing out another red flag.

Wagner was being treated at an area medical center as of press time.

Devin Hart led the first five laps of the econo late feature before Snook took over.

Hart held on over the final 10 laps for the second spot at the finish followed by Eric Irvin, Tim Krape and Andrew Yoder.

Twin heats went to Hart and Krape.

Bill Powell led the first lap of the xtreme stock main before sixth starter Mike Goodwin took over, looking like a man on a mission as he throttled around the outside of the track for control.

Goodwin pulled away early but near the finish had Powell glued to his bumper for the final few circuits.

MONTIETH WINS FEATURE, KRIMES CLAIMS FIRST TRACK TITLE IN LINCOLN 410 SPRINTS;

Chandler Leiby becomes 12th different ’14 winner in 358 sprints; Russ Mitten leads ‘em all in super sportsman

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 8/30/2014 – Brian Montieth used lapped traffic to his advantage to grab the race lead and move into sole possession of sixth place on the all-time Lincoln win list after scoring his 43rd career win on John Gleim Excavating Night in the Pigeon Hills Saturday night.

Handicapping placed the Premier Auto Works/Auto Locator 11th for the start. Outside front row starter Ryan Wilson led the first lap before a red flag for a flipping Freddie Rahmer on the back stretch stopped the action. The rest of the 25-lap feature went non-stop.

Wilson led the first 14 laps before sixth-starting Steve Owings took over. Montieth, putting on his normal driving clinic, advanced to third by lap nine and followed Owings past Wilson into second on the same lap. Montieth continued to dog the leader until the two hit lapped traffic, driving under Owings in turns one and two of lap 21.

Once in front, Montieth drove through heavy lapped traffic to his third Lincoln win of the year.

“Fred Putney did an awesome job here,” said Montieth in victory lane, “We had almost 100 cars here and the track was still raceable. That’s really unheard of here in Central Pennsylvania. He does an excellent job week-in and week-out trying to do everything he can so we’re competitive as a race group. He’s definitely one of the best.”

“It is tough here every week,” continued Montieth, “It doesn’t matter where you start. You can start front row, or start 20th, and everybody’s got a chance to win. That’s why I think that Kasey Kahne race is going to be a good deal. You don’t need a ton of motor and anybody can win here from any point, so I think it’s going to be a good show. Short track racing is the best.”

“I want to congratulate the Krimes family,” said Montieth, “They absolutely deserve the track title. He finished second in points a couple of times and I’m sure happy for them. The run he had tonight show why he’s the track champion.”

By taking a green in warm-ups, Krimes claimed his first-ever Lawrence Chevrolet track title. And he did it in style, coming from 19th starting spot to finish fifth.

Owings and Wilson crossed second and third, followed by eighth-starting Cory Haas.

Sixth through tenth were Matt Boland, Billy Dietrich, Jim Siegel, Danny Dietrich, and Robbie Kendall.

Heats for the 27 “410” Sprints were won by Kyle Moody, Montieth, and Danny Dietrich, with Krimes winning the consolation.

Chandler Leiby, grandson of Lincoln co-promoter Bob Leiby and whose family is close friends with race sponsor John Gleim, came from eighth starting spot to claim his first win of the year in the 20-lap “358” sprint car feature. It was Leiby’s second career Lincoln win.

Outside front row starter Denny Gross led the first seven laps before giving way to C.J. Tracy. Leiby was up to third by the end of the third lap, and took the lead from Tracy on lap 12. Following a lengthy red flag when two cars got hooked together in turn two of lap 13, Leiby held off Kevin Nouse, C.J. Tracy, Niki Young, and points leader Chase Dietz over the final seven laps.

Heats for the 31 “358” Sprints were won by Matt Campbell, Nouse, and Doug Hammaker, with Zach Euculano winning the consolation.

Russ Mitten started on the outside of the front row and led every lap of the 25-lap super sportsman feature.

Scott Geesey advanced from fourth to second on the first lap and drove on the back bumper of Mitten the entire way, with sixth-starting Frankie Herr, Mike Enders, and hard charger Kevin Nouse (who came from 11th starting spot) rounding out the top five.

Mitten’s final margin of victory in the first of three straight appearances by the super sportsman leading up to the Lawrence Chevrolet Sportsman 100 on September 13th was .81 seconds.

Heats for the 37 Super Sportsman won by Herr, Mitten, Nouse, and Rich Eichelberger, with Steve Wilbur and Chad Trout winning twin consolations.

Lincoln swings back in action next Saturday night, September 6th, at 7 PM with the Keizer Aluminum Wheels 358 Sprinters competing in their final point race of 2014. The Super Sportsman and PASS RaceSaver (305) Sprints will round out the 3-division open-wheeled program. Gates will open at 5 PM.

McCLELLAND SURVIVES CLOSE CALL TO WIN 7TH IN TRAIL-WAY 358 SPRINTS;

STEVE STORRIE CLAIMS 305 SPRINT FEATURE;

DAN FURMAN WINS 6TH IN STREET STOCKS; ROLAND BROWN CLASSIC CAR WINNER;

ACMS 600 STOCK MICROS TO DREW RITCHEY

Hanover, PA (08/29/14) – No one in attendance, including track officials, knew how he did it.

Brad McClelland wasn’t sure himself. But somehow, McClelland squeezed between two cars sitting sideways in turn four of lap 12 to hold onto the lead and go on to claim his seventh win of the year in the 25-lap “358” sprint car feature at Trail-Way Speedway Friday night.

“I can feel for Tony Stewart,” said McClelland in victory lane, “I simply didn’t see those guys in turn four. I heard ‘caution’ on the raceceiver, but I didn’t see them until the last second.”

“It was a little time-consuming,” McClelland said of the feature, “But stuff like that happens when you get more cars on a short track.”

One of the crashes that held up the race was a four-car melee in turns three and four of lap ten, which resulted in Austin Kirby flying into the catch fence and landing between the outside wall and the catch fence itself. Kirby’s car knocked four poles down and it took nearly a half-hour to get Kirby’s car back onto the race track to haul to the pits.

A redraw placed McClelland third for the start. McClelland caught outside front row starter Chris Arnold for second on the first lap, and wrestled the lead from polesitter Dwight Leppo on lap six.

The near-miss for McClelland came six laps later, when Seth Kearchner and Tyler Buchenauer got together and spun in turn four. The two sideways cars nearly blocked the track, and while most driver went to the extreme top or extreme bottom to miss them, McClelland was the first car to approach the spinners and drove between them, despite the fact that it didn’t look like there was enough room.

From there, McClelland drove to a 1.22-second win over runner-up Leppo, with Jeff Rohrbaugh, Randy Whisler, and Arnold completing the top five.

Sixth through tenth were visitor Jordan Givler, hard-charger Matt Campbell (who started 14th), Jeff Halligan, Buchenauer, and Cody Fletcher.

Heats for the season-high 19 “358” sprint cars were won by Halligan, Rohrbaugh, and Whisler.

Steve Storrie drove the Clair Wintermeyer #3W to the win in the 20-lap Pennsylvania Sprint Series “305” feature, the division’s first appearance at the TW in several years.

Storrie started sixth and caught polesitter and race-long leader Russ Hammaker at the flagstand to complete lap 14. He led the rest of the way, crossing 1.63 seconds ahead of Mark Watkins, with Eric Parker, Dalton Dietrich, and Tony Fiore rounding out the top five.

Hammaker crashed into the first-turn wall one lap after losing the race lead, and was done for the night.

Heats for the 15 PASS sprinters were won by Parker and Watkins.

The street stock championship was won by Dan Furman, his sixth Trail-Way win of the year.

Furman started third and raced the first seven laps with polesitter Eric Johnson for the runner-up spot until race leader Michael Goodwin lost his steering, slowed, and brought out the caution on lap eight. Johnson led from laps eight through 13 before Furman caught him in turns three and four and led the of the way, finishing 2.28 seconds ahead of Jeremy Stremmel, who lost the handle in the final turn and drove through the infield, back onto the track, and across the line.

Johnson, Cory Weishaar, and David Johnson completed the top five.

Qualifiers for the 12 street stocks were won by Eric Johnson and Goodwin.

Roland Brown bested younger brother Wes for the win in the 20-lap Classic Car feature.

The Browns made up the front row, and Roland led every lap except lap nine.

Third through fifth were Steve Clemo, Randy Doty (who started last), and Matt Wallace (who started next-to-last).

Heats for the 12 Classic Cars were won by the Browns.

Drew Ritchey picked up the win in the 15-lap ACMS 600 Stock Micro-Sprint feature.

Ritchey started third and took the lead from outside front row starter and race-long leader Alan Rhodes on lap seven. He paced the field the rest of the way, with Rhodes, Gunnar Layton, polesitter Sean Garman, and Logan Jones finishing second through fifth.

The lone qualifier for the seven ACMS micros was won by Rhodes.

Tomorrow (8/30), Trail-Way will hold a Junk Car Demolition Race. Also on the schedule are the Limited Stocks for a championship race, Figure 8, and Powder Puff. Gates open at 4 p.m. with racing beginning at 6 p.m.

Lucas Wolfe Claims Williams Grove Gunn Memorial 30 Years After Father Randy

Second generation driver also ties dad on all-time Grove win list

8/29/14

Mechanicsburg – Lucas Wolfe wired the field and held off Lance Dewease to claim victory in Friday night’s 30-lap, 32nd annual Jack Gunn Memorial for 410 sprint cars, worth $6,000.

Wolfe started second in the field and beat polesitter Don Kreitz Jr. to the punch at the start to take the lead.

Fourth starter Lance Dewease got by Kreitz for second on the sixth circuit and was trailing Wolfe within striking distance when he began working the backmarkers on the 11th tour.

Dewease crept even closer to the leader as the 13th lap was put in the books and he first took the lead with a swoop across the inside of the first and second turns as the front duo worked the 14th lap.

Wolfe zipped back around the outside to reclaim control seconds later and Dewease began regrouping for another run at Wolfe’s Zemco No. 1 racer.

Just after the 16th lap was recorded Dewease again drove low for the lead and came out in front with Wolfe again ready to reclaim the spot only this time the caution flag unfurled, settling the pace and the move for control.

Wolfe got an excellent restart when green reappeared and was well away from Dewease when another caution appeared with 18 laps down, this time for a collapsed front end on Danny Dietrich’s racer after hard contact with the outside frontstretch fence resulting from contact with Brent Marks as the pair battled for seventh spot.

Dewease got a better start behind Wolfe on the restart but Wolfe was still able to pull away and it took until there was just two laps to go for Dewease to get close enough again to mount a challenge, again not until after the leader was working lapped traffic.

But Wolfe was up to the challenge and took his 11th career victory at the track, in the Gunn Memorial, exactly 30 years after his father Randy Wolfe took the Gunn win in 1984.

Ironically, Lucas Wolfe’s 11th career Williams Grove win also tied him with his father Randy on the oval all-time win list.

Stevie Smith was third followed by Kreitz and Greg Hodnett.

Sixth through 10th went to 18th starter Alan Krimes, Doug Esh, Brent Marks, Brian Montieth and Cory Haas.

First round heats went to Montieth, Mike Wagner Sr. and Wolfe. Second round heats went to Ryan Wilson, Haas and Dietrich.

Kreitz earned the pole for the main by claiming the dash.

Smith set fast time over the 25-car field with a lap of 16.774 seconds.

Kevin Seigler led the first seven laps of the 15-lap street stock main before Doug Hoffman took over with eight down.

Hoffman held sway until a lap 12 restart when heavy pressure for the lead saw Jeff Haag go out in front for his fifth win of the season at the track.

Hoffman was second followed by Siegler, Craig Morgan and Dustin Hollinger.

Twin heats for the 21-car field went to Mike Zeigler Jr. and Jaynee Zeigler.

Hodnett, Dietrich and Montieth Stand Out Via Dirt Classic Podium Tracker

Inside Line Promotions - CATAWBA, N.C. (Aug. 28, 2014) - With only one month remaining until the inaugural Dirt Classic Presented by Kasey Kahne, a trio of Pennsylvania drivers have become standouts entering the $20,000-to-win event.

The Dirt Classic podium tracker has been keeping track of weekly results at Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown - the site of the Dirt Classic on Saturday, Sept. 27 - as well as at Williams Grove in Mechanicsburg and at Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal.

Greg Hodnett leads all Central Pennsylvania drivers with eight wins and 19 podium finishes.

"I think it's probably as smooth as sprint car racing can be," he said. "It takes a little bit of nothing to lose it. As of right now the guys are doing a good job and we're running decent. The way sprint car racing works one day you can look like a hero and the next day you look like a zero."

Hodnett, who is searching for his first win of the year at Lincoln Speedway, noted that the Dirt Classic is circled on the race calendar.

"Our month of money starts here in the next two weeks, which includes the Dirt Classic," he said. "We have some pretty big races."

Danny Dietrich ranks second on the Dirt Classic podium tracker with six wins, including a track-best three at Lincoln Speedway, and 12 podiums.

"I'm feeling pretty good," he said. "We found some issues and we're back to being 100 percent. I feel our team is one of the fastest teams at Lincoln right now. We have an advantage going there."

Dietrich has a provisional into the Dirt Classic feature by virtue of his qualifier win at Roaring Knob Motorsports Complex in Markleysburg, Pa., on June 1.

Brian Montieth has earned a trio of feature victories and 13 podium results this season. He has garnered two wins and three runner-up finishes at Lincoln Speedway this year.

"Lincoln is probably my most comfortable race track," he said. "It's our most consistent one. As long as we don't overthink it.

"For a short track I think (the Dirt Classic) is a very big event. You don't need a ton of motor to win at Lincoln. You can run Lincoln with a normal short track motor and win there. There's a lot of guys who don't run big cubic inches there because you don't need it. For $20,000 to win on a short track, it's huge. I think you'll see a lot of cars."

A half-dozen other drivers have also posted numerous wins and podium finishes in Central Pennsylvania this season as the region gears up for the inaugural Dirt Classic.

360/358 Sprint Car Challenge Race Replaces ARDC Midgets at SSP on Sunday, September 21

ARDC Sanction Dropped from Candy Bowl on Saturday, October 25 with Wingless Midgets Still on the Card

Newberrytown, PA (August 27, 2014) – The Inaugural Sprint Car Fall Classic on Sunday night, will now see a 360/358 Sprint Car Challenge race replacing the ARDC Midgets. The headliner that evening will be the 410 Super Sprint Cars along with a special appearance of the Sidewinder Sprint Cars.

The Super 410 Sprint Car feature will pay $3,500-to-win for the 25-lap feature event. Non-qualifiers for the A-Main feature will receive a complimentary non-transferrable entry fee ($50.00 value) for the Final Showdown to be held at SSP in November. For the Super Sprint Cars, mufflers WILL NOT be required and Hoosier Brand Spec Tires will be required on all four corners (same as the 2014 rules at Williams Grove, Lincoln and Port Royal Speedways). All other rules will follow the generally accepted rules for Sprint Cars at local weekly Central PA Sprint Car tracks (1400 pounds weight rule). Raceivers will be mandatory for all Sprint Cars.

The 358/360 Sprint Car feature will pay $2,000-to-win for the 20-lap feature event. The race will pay $200 to start. Non-qualifiers for the A-Main feature will receive a complimentary non-transferrable entry fee ($50.00 value) for the Final Showdown to be held at SSP in November. Mufflers WILL NOT be required. For all cars, the following tires are permitted - Hoosier Brand Spec Tires will be required on all four corners (same as the 2014 rules at Williams Grove, Lincoln and Trailways Speedways), URC2, MC@, or Selinsgrove track tire. All other rules of the Central PA 358 Sprint Cars will prevail for 358 cars this event. All cars competing may use ASCS top wing rule and the minimum weight for all cars with driver is 1,475 pounds. An event flyer with full purse may be found at www.sspracing.net.

The mutual decision to replace the ARDC Midgets on Sunday was a difficult choice for Todd Fisher, SSP owner and the ARDC representative Jerry Steward. “There are many good people within the organization that I respect and like. The ARDC group as a whole is very challenging to deal with and have some fundamental organization problems.” Fisher explained. “There are many reasons that have led to this decision. It was not a knee-jerk reaction.” The reasons include the numerous leadership changes over the past few seasons, instability in car count and other speedways being given special deals to run the ARDC Midgets. “I signed a sanction agreement in the Spring and have yet to have a returned copy signed by an ARDC representative returned to me. It is now the end of the summer. This is one of the many fundamental issues with the internal workings of the organization.”

The on-track action of wingless midget racing was never an issue other than the concern of the newly appointed scheduling director, Jerry Steward expressing his concern that “Drivers don’t want race on a horse@#&$ racetrack following the Sprint Cars and burn off four tires in one race.” That comment was the final straw that led to Fisher dropping the ARDC Midgets from the September 21 event. “Jerry and I both mutually agreed that it would not be in the best interest of anyone if he and the drivers felt that way in competing with the 410 Sprint Cars on the same card.” Even though Steward offered Fisher a “Special Deal for SSP,” Fisher declined to continue with the ARDC sanctioning.

The wingless Midgets will remain on the same card for the popular Candy Bowl X presented by J&K Salvage, just without the ARDC sanctioning. Purse details for the open competition midget event will be released in the near future.

Fisher concluded, “I hope that the ARDC group with its 75-year tradition of great racing can get its off-track act together. As a supporter of the group over the last 10 years and seeing many internal changes within the group, I wish them the best and we will see what the future between us and the group.”

Stillwaggon Holds Off Stutts For First Career Selinsgrove Win Frontrunners Escape 10 Car Crash In Early Laps

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Following a string of strong finishes at Selinsgrove Speedway in recent years, Robbie Stillwaggon of Burlington, N.J., scored his first career win at the Snyder County half-mile oval in Saturday night’s 25-lap 360 sprint car feature.

Stillwaggon, driving the Quality Auto Body No. 89, held off three-time winner TJ Stutts of Liverpool for the $2,000 victory and became the track’s eighth different 360 sprint car winner this season.

Jeff Rine of Danville wired the field in a brand-new race car for his fifth win of the year in the 30-lap super late model tune-up race. The victory marked the 90th of Rine’s career at the track. Steve Campbell of Danville was the night’s overall fast qualifier with a lap time of 18.996.

Nathan Long of Selinsgrove scored his third win of the season in the 15-lap pro stock feature, while Keith Bissinger of Orangeville made a last-lap pass by John Fowler Jr. of Montandon for his seventh win of the year in the 12-lap roadrunner race.

Selinsgrove Speedway will present the World of Outlaws Late Model Series National Open weekend Saturday, Aug. 30, and Sunday, Aug. 31. Saturday night’s preliminary race will feature the super late models in a 40-lap main event paying $8,000 to win along with pro stocks, followed by Sunday night’s 50-lap 16th annual Open paying $10,000 to win with 358 late models on the racing card. Gates will open at 4 p.m. with racing at 7 p.m. both nights.

Polesitter Matt Horst and second-place starter Joe Trenca dueled for the lead at the start of the sprint car feature. Trenca edged out Horst on the first lap for the lead and set a quick pace around the smooth, fast half-mile oval.

On the third lap, a 10-car melee unfolded in turn three, sidelining a number of drivers, including points leader and leading feature winner Mark Smith for the night. There were no injuries reported.

When the race resumed, Trenca led another lap as eighth-place starter Robbie Stillwaggon put in a bid for the front spot. After Stillwaggon made a pass for the lead, the caution flag unfurled for Jim Shuster in turn two. Trenca retained the lead for the restart until Horst drove by him and led the race through lap 10.

On the 11th circuit, Stillwaggon made the winning pass by Horst using the inside line coming off turn four. TJ Stutts, who started in the 10th position, showed a lot of speed in the second half of the race and powered into the runner-up spot on lap 16.

MOTHER NATURE GETS RARE WIN AT LINCOLN SPEEDWAY;

John Gleim Jr. Excavating Night headlines next weekends’ Labor Day Holiday Weekend Racing Program with Fireworks;

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 8/23/2014 – Persistent drizzle and rain late into the afternoon forced Lincoln Speedway promoters Don & Bob Leiby, and Alan Kreitzer, to cancel Saturday evening’s, August 23rd racing program of 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints, and All American Outlaws.

With the forecast of rain moving out of the Pigeon Hill’s area early afternoon, the usually determined Lincoln Speedway promoters were looking for every reason to get the show in. But a low-hanging cloud ceiling, drizzle and the occasional light rain shower continued into the afternoon despite the forecast and appearance on radar that the rain had moved out of the area. Throw in the near 100 percent humidity and Fred Putney and his crew just couldn’t get the racing surface prepared in a timely manner.

They finally pulled the plug on the evening’s racing program around 5 PM before the gates had officially opened.

Still yet to be determined will be when the 358 Sprint Trail-Way/Lincoln Speedway Shootout and Kids Big Wheel races will be rescheduled.

Next Saturday night, August 30th,Lincoln Speedway will celebrate Labor Day Holiday weekend with their Annual John Gleim Jr. Excavating Night featuring the Lawrence Chevrolet 410 Sprints, Keizer Aluminum Wheels 358 Sprints, and Super Sportsman. It will be the final point race for the 410 Sprints with Alan Krimes holding a 260 point lead over Jim Siegel, and 295 points over Brian Montieth, in the battle for the coveted 2014 track title. The evening’s activities will be capped off with a spectacular Summer-ending Fireworks display. Gates will open at 5:30 PM, with green flag getting underway at 7:30 PM.

NAPA AUTO PARTS & PIONEER POLE BUILDINGS JERSEY RUSH 4 A BIG SUCCESS. . . . . .

RYAN SMITH TOPS LUCAS WOLFE FOR FIRST EVERY 410 SPRINT WIN AS BILLY PAUCH COMES HOME THE MODIFIED FEATURE WINNER IN THE JERSEY RUSH 4

New Egypt, NJ . . . . . . . . .Twenty-six year old Ryan Smith of Kunkletown, PA scored his first career 410 sprint car win Tuesday night in the JERSEY RUSH 4 at the New Egypt Speedway. The event, sponsored by NAPA Auto Parts and Pioneer Pole Buildings, saw Billy Pauch hold off two late race challenges from Jimmy Blewett and Doug Manmiller to win the modified feature. A big crowd turned out for the fourth running of the Jersey RUSH with the final checkered flag falling at 10:25 PM.

Twenty-six sprint cars took part in time trials with Lance Dewease setting fast time with a time of 13.461. Heat race events were sponsored by Lentini Auto Salvage with $200 going to the winners that included Lucas Wolfe, Freddie Rahmer and Davey Sammons.

In the 30 lap Jersey Rush sprint feature, Ryan Smith took the lead at the drop of the green followed by Mark Smith and Freddie Rahmer. Smith quickly established a comfortable lead with JJ Grasso and Lucas Wolfe on the move to the front. On lap ten, the first caution was displayed for Joey Hershey who stopped in turn four. On the restart, Smith now had to contend with Mark Smith and two time Jersey Rush winner JJ Grasso. At the halfway mark, Ryan Smith was on top followed by Mark Smith, JJ Grasso, Freddie Rahmer and Lucas Wolfe.

By lap nineteen, the battle was now between Mark Smith and Grasso for second. On lap twenty-one, Grasso moved into second and began the task of chasing down Ryan Smith.

Following a lap twenty-three restart, Lucas Wolfe made a strong run and advanced to second, passing JJ Grasso going into turn one. With five laps remaining, Wolfe was reeling in Ryan Smith as slower traffic was now making the race very interesting. On lap twenty-seven, Wolfe pulled along-side of Smith but the pass was not going to be completed this time.

Smith pulled a two car length advantage but with two laps remaining, Wolfe was back in the hunt. With the white flag waving, Wolfe took another run for the lead but Ryan Smith was not to be denied his first 410 win and a $5,000 payday. Lucas Wolfe finished second, JJ Grasso third, Kyle Reinhardt was fourth with Freddie Rahmer making up the top five.

The three Lentini Auto Salvage Modified heats were won by Dominick Buffalino, Billy Pauch and Ryan Godown.

In the 30 lap modified feature, Neal Williams set the pace for the first two circuits with Billy Pauch taking the lead on lap three. Williams fought back to try and regain the lead but Pauch held on to the top spot. On lap eight Doug Manmiller moved into second and by lap twelve, Manmiller was challenging Pauch for the lead.

At the halfway point, Pauch and Manmiller were at the front of the pack with Jimmy Blewett third, Williams fourth and Keith Hoffman. On lap eighteen, Blewett moved into second and now it was up to him to take the win away from Pauch. With five laps remaining, the top five was Pauch, Blewett, Manmiller, , Keith Hoffman and Duane Howard.

In the final two closing laps, Blewett caught Pauch and offered several challenges but at the drop of the checkered flag, the $3,000 payoff went to Pauch. Blewett was second with Doug Manmiller third, Keith Hoffman was fourth and Duane Howard fifth.

410 SPRINT FEATURE $5,000 TO WIN: Ryan Smith, Lucas Wolfe, JJ Grasso, Kyle Reinhardt, Freddie Rahmer, Greg Hodnett, Davey Sammons, Mark Smith, Davie Franek, Mark Bitner, Troy Betts, Billy Pauch Jr., Tyler Ross, Logan Wagner, Brian Carber, Billy Dietrich, Brandon Rahmer, Rick Lafferty, Kyle Purks, Jeff Fithian, Lance Dewease, Ed Aikin, Joey Hershey, Karl Freyer, Kevin Nagy

The race came to a halt in the fourth lap due to a three-car crash in the first turn. Bobby Hockenberry used the restart to become the new leader. He had a 1.8 second lead when the caution came out at the midway point of the event.

Bobby Hockenberry and the rookie Tony Jackson gained an advantage over the field. The battle was for third between Kenny Edkins, Rich Eichelberger and Russ Mitten. Mike Enders and 19th-place starter Frankie Herr joined the scrap for third.

Bobby Hockenberry never faltered allowing him to stretch out his lead over Tony Jackson. Hockenberry was the winner by 12 lengths. Rookie Tony Jackson recorded his third straight top five finish crossing the finish line in second. Russ Mitten made a late charge to finish in third with Rich Eichelberger in fourth and Mike Enders was fifth. Kenny Edkins, Frankie Herr, Jay Fannasy, Chad Trout, and Greg Foster completed the top ten.

Steve Wilbur, Jay Fannasy and Foster won the heats for the 28 entries. Herr was the consolation winner and received the Sprint Aces Hard Charger award.

Randy Croop started second in the Credit Connection Auto Sales 358 Late Models. Croop was in front by the end of lap one with Sam Rial, Al Cheney, Travis Mease, and Cam Zeigler giving chase. By the fifth lap Croop had a straightaway lead over Rial while Zeigler advanced to third. When Zeigler wrestled second from Rial, Croop had a 3.1 second lead.

Charlie Schaffer, the 12th-place starter, challenged Cam Zeigler for second. The duo of Zeigler and Schaffer narrowed Randy Croop's lead. Despite their hard-fought fight for second, the lead duo continued to shrink Croop's advantage.

Charlie Schaffer captured second place as leader Randy Croop received the white flag. Croop maintained his lead and the Berwick driver won his second of the year eight lengths ahead of Charlie Schaffer. Cam Zeigler was third, Jake Jones finished in fourth and Sam Rial was fifth.

Heats for the 17-car field went to Dan Zechman and Rial. Schaffer received the Artwerks Hard Charger award.

The front row of the 15 lap Aquafun Pools Street Stock main featured Dustin Hollinger and Doug Hoffman. Hoffman and Hollinger were side-by-side through the first lap. One lap later Hoffman, Hollinger and Greg Diehl were three-wide in the fight for the lead. Doug Hoffman held the lead with Dustin Hollinger, Greg Diehl, Steven Dove, and Eric Tripp in close pursuit.

The first of two cautions came on lap six. Doug Hoffman continued to set the pace with Dustin Hollinger making frequent challenges.

A lap nine caution slowed the race. Dustin Hollinger used the restart to take over the lead. The top five of Hollinger, Hoffman, Greg Diehl, Jeff Haag, and Mike Buckley were in a tight pack. Hollinger, from Palmyra, could not shake Hoffman; Hoffman remaining a length behind.

Dustin Hollinger turned back the challenges of Doug Hoffman. Hollinger won his second of 2014 by two lengths over Doug Hoffman. Greg Diehl was third with Jeff Haag in fourth and Mike Buckley finished fifth.

Hollinger and Buckley won the preliminaries for the 20 entries. Jeff Haag was named the Artwerks Hard Charger winner.

KELLER BREAKS SMITH'S WINNING STREAK IN 360 SPRINT CARS

FRYE DOMINATES FOR FIRST LATE MODEL WIN OF SEASON; MITCH RETURNS TO PRO STOCK WINNERS CIRCLE; BISSINGER SCORES SIXTH ROADRUNNER FEATURE WIN

SELINSGROVE, Pa. –Selinsgrove's Cody Keller made a breakthrough Saturday night at Selinsgrove Speedway and scored an impressive victory in the 25-lap 360 sprint car feature following a season filled with mechanical woes. The $2,000 win was Keller's first of the season and first career in a 360 sprint car at the wheel of the Keller's Auto Body/Trautman's Meat Market No. 99. He became the division's seventh different winner this season and in doing so ended point leader Mark Smith's three-race winning streak. Keller previously won two 358 sprint car races at the track.

Coleby Frye of Dover also turned in a convincing performance for his first win of the season in the 25-lap late model feature. Frye became the 10th different late model winner this season in 15 races.

Brad Mitch of McClure scored his fifth win of the year in the 15-lap pro stock feature and put himself in a position to clinch the track championship, while Keith Bissinger of Orangeville held off a late-race challenge for his sixth win in the 12-lap roadrunner race.

Selinsgrove Speedway will hold a $2,000-to-win tune-up race for the super late models at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 23, in preparation for the upcoming two-day World of Outlaws Late Model Series National Open weekend Aug. 30-31. The 360 sprint cars, pro stocks, and roadrunners will round out the four-division racing card.

Tickets for the Aug. 30-31 World of Outlaws Late Model Series National Open events are on sale now in the track office on race days or by calling the speedway at 570.374.2999. The pro stocks will join the late models on the Aug. 30 program and the limited late models will race on the Aug. 31 show.

Polesitter Troy Betts and fourth-place starter Cody Keller battled for the lead on the start of the sprint car feature. Entering turn three on the first lap, Keller streaked underneath Betts and took the early lead. Keller set a torrid pace in front of Betts, eighth-place starter Jason Shultz, and 12th-place starter Mark Smith at the front of the pack.

The first caution flag unfurled on lap six when Michael Walter's No. 33 rolled to a stop on the track. When the race restarted, Keller kept his sprinter out in front the pack. On lap nine, Shultz passed Betts for the runner-up spot as 17th-place starter TJ Stutts rocketed into the top five.

At the halfway point, Keller began to encounter slower traffic. With five laps to race, Keller was leading Shultz, Smith, Stutts, and Betts in a high-speed chase around the half-mile oval. Betts, however, brought out the final caution flag when his car came to a stop on the backstretch.

On the final restart, Keller maintained his momentum around the top of the race track as Smith took the second spot away from Shultz. At the checkered flag, Keller was victorious by 2.5 seconds over Smith. Shultz, Stutts, and seventh-place starter Larry Kelleher completed the top five.

Coleby Frye started the late model feature in the fourth position and horsepowered his way into the lead at the completion of the first lap, when the event's only caution flag unfurled for Chad Hollenbeck's stalled car on the backstretch.

When the race resumed, Frye checked out from the field while second-place starter Eric Hons, third-place starter Hayes Mattern dueled for the runner up position. By lap nine, sixth-place starter Gene Knaub took over the second spot with 10th-place starter Jeff Rine racing third.

On the 19th circuit, Rine passed Knaub for the second position and attempted to reel in Frye at the front of the pack. At the finish, Frye posted a convincing eight-second margin of victory over Rine, ninth-place starter Dylan Yoder, 12th-place starter Jim Yoder, and eighth-place starter Dave Zona.

Polesitter Matt Hornberger led the first five laps of the pro stock feature. On the sixth lap, 11th-place starter Brad Mitch made the winning pass using the inside lane entering turn three. Mitch was then tracked down by 10th-place starter Kyle Bachman until Bachman's car lost speed on the ninth lap.

Mitch went on to take the checkered flag over Hornberger, Tommy Slanker, Adam Campbell, and Cory Long. Jamin Chapmin's car, which crossed the line in the third position, was disqualified during a post-race inspection.

Fifth-place starter Keith Bissinger stormed into the lead on the first lap of the roadrunner race. Bissinger was followed at a distance by fourth-place starter John Fowler Jr. until the last two laps. On the final circuit, Fowler moved into striking position and attempted a last-ditch pass coming off turn four but came up short for the checkered flag. Bissinger was victorious over Fowler, Curtis Lawton, Butch Shaffer, and Jeremy Kline.

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

Mike Wagner Becomes 13th Winner In 15 Sprint Events At Port Royal

Miller Sr. Makes It 12 For 12 In Super Lates, Leidy cops econo championship

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

8/16/14

Port Royal – For the second week in a row on Saturday night the Port Royal Speedway produced a thrilling 410 sprint car feature with the likes of Blane Heimbach, Logan Wagner, Greg Hodnett and Mike Wagner taking shots at the lead and point leader Mike Wagner sealing the victory to become the 13th different winner at the oval this season.

In the 20-lap super late model main Jeff Miller Sr. scored his first victory of the season to push the division to 12 and 12 on the year, 12 races and 12 different winners.

The 355 econo late model championship event was scored by Dave Leidy after a rousing event.

The initial start of the 410 sprint main was called back for a false start while the ensuing restart was red flagged for a three car crash in the fourth corner that saw Daryl Stimeling and Scott Wilson flip.

The third try at the start was the charm and with Mike Wagner taking the lead Blane Heimbach pushed his mount from fourth to second with a two-car, inside pass of Nate Snyder and Logan Wagner in the fourth turn.

Heimbach was breathing down the leader’s neck seconds later when the yellow unfurled for a stopped Joey Hershey.

The other 24 laps of the event went non-stop with eye-popping and dizzying efforts to snare control of the race unfolding.

Logan Wagner, the son of leader Mike Wagner, got by Heimbach when action resumed and throughout the race ran made a tremendous effort to steal the win from his father.

Logan’s breakneck speed through the first and second turns while riding the cushion pushed him onto his dad’s bumper several times only to see the elder of the two preserve the lead as sixth starter Hodnett entered the picture.

After racing with Heimbach for third he took the position with nine laps to go amid hectic traffic as the leader worked the backmarkers.

And then just as Hodnett took over third Logan Wagner was ready to make his move for a first ever 410 sprint win.

Again with an amazing burst of speed out of the second corner and down the backstretch Logan shot his mount underneath his father as the pair raced into the third corner.

And then as Logan’s car slid up the track directly beside his dad’s machine in the middle of the turns, an amazing amount of restraint and ability by the duo is all that kept the pair from crashing together in the fourth corner and allowing Hodnett to get control.

But that failed attempt by Logan Wagner and the necessary backpedaling that took place to prevent disaster for the pair would end up costing the up and comer second to Hodnett with five laps to go.

Hodnett began blasting his car across the middle of the turns to cut down the distance between himself and leader Mike Wagner.

However with two laps to go just as Hodnett had caught the leader, Mike Wagner cleared a backmarker racing back to the stripe and Hodnett failed to accomplish the same feat, and that sealed the victyory for the elder Wagner who took his 11th career Port win by 1.143 seconds over Hodnett.

Logan Wagner finished a career best third followed by Heimbach and 10th starter Doug Esh.

Sixth through 10th went to Mike Erdley, Ryan Taylor, Lance Dewease, Chad Layton and Nate Snyder.

Heats for the 23-car field went to Dewease, Logan Wagner and Layton.

Second starter Jeff Miller Sr. started second and took the lead at the start of the 20-lap main for the super late models with Justin Kann taking second.

Miller Sr., who saw his son Jeff Miller Jr. win at the track last week in the 305 sprints, withstood a pair of restarts to pick up the victory.

The final restart was with a lap to go after the leader was racing to the checkered flag on the frontchute only to see the yellow appear instead of the checkers.

That restart set up a dash to the finish for Kann and seventh starter Brett Schadel.

Schadel was making time in the top groove prior to the yellow but neither driver could muster enough strength to take the win over the final lap.

After leading nearly the entire event only to lose late last week, Patrick Bryner rode home a very respectable fourth at the finish after dueling with Tim Wilson for the majority of the event.

Wilson rode home fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Scott Flickinger, Tim Smith Jr., Mitch Hack, Mike Lupfer and Eric Zembower.

Heats for the 16-car field went to Kann and Miller.

The 20 lap econo late model main saw Brett Hockenberry take the lead at the start over Harold Ranck Jr. before the pace was slowed with four laps recorded.

Dave Leidy started fourth in the field and got by Ranck for second with five away and finally pushed his racer into the lead with just three laps to go.

By that time sixth starter Eric Irvin and eighth starter Todd Snook had entered the hunt.

Snook got by Irvin for third on the 18th tour and with a lap to go he pushed his No. 23 to the inside of Hockenberry for second in the third corner.

But the move went awry and Hockenberry shot toward the outside rail with Irving slamming into Hockenberry before slamming the outside wall as well.

The final lap caution gave Snook a clear shot at the win but Leidy was too strong, pulling away off of the second corner for the victory.

Andrew Yoder ended up third followed by hard charger Tim Krape and Lucas Bryner after the pair started 11th and 12th, respectively.

Sixth through 10th went to Jared Fulkroad, Troy Miller, Tim Gray, Shaun Miller and Ken Beck.

Twin heats went to Leidy and Troy Miller.

DIETRICH CATCHES RAHMER LATE FOR THIRD 2014 LINCOLN WIN;

Alex Bright wins for second straight night in ARDC midgets

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 8/16/2014 – The night looked like it belonged to young Freddie Rahmer, but then Danny Dietrich stole the show.

Freddie won the dash for cash (a $500 bonus from race sponsor Jerry Parrish and Premier Auto Works in a winner-take-all 10 lapper) and then came from fourth starting spot to take the lead from polesitter Mike Bittinger by the end of the second lap. He was the fastest car all night to that point, and looked to be in command of the 30-lap feature. Then lapped traffic (including brother Brandon) entered the picture, and a charging Danny Dietrich was plowing through the field from 11th starting spot to pass both third-place Robbie Kendall and second-place Bittinger between turns four and one of laps 22 and 23.

One lap later, passed both Rahmer sprinters to take the race lead on the front stretch and drove away to an impressive 2.88 second win.

“We were really good,” said Dietrich after scoring his third win of the year and 21st career win in the Pigeon Hills, “Alan (Krimes) got out there and we were just setting pace with him. That’s all we worried about doing…keeping up with Alan.”

“Then I saw him loop it down there (turns three and four of lap nine), and it about got me. We were probably two feet from being collected. I’m happy to be standing here.”

But the minefield wasn’t over for Dietrich.

“I was biding my time and got behind Robbie (Kendall) there, and he about stuffed in the fence in front of me, and that fouled me up for about a lap. I was sure if I wanted to follow him with his car getting loose or what, but when he started to break for the bottom and Mike decided to break to run middle, I figured this is my chance…I gotta go for it and come out of this thing ahead off of four. It worked out really good.

Rahmer hung on for a career-best second place finish, with Bittinger, Kendall, and Kyle Moody completing the top five.

Sixth through tenth were 14th-starting Jim Siegel, Gerard McIntyre, Jr., Krimes, Glenndon Forsythe, and Brian Montieth (who came from the back after a seventh-lap spin.

Heats for the 25 410 sprinters were won by Krimes, Nicole Bower, and Freddie Rahmer.

Alex Bright made it two wins in two nights (Friday night at Williams Grove) as ARDC celebrated its 75th anniversary season as part of the Eastern Museum of Motor Racing’s annual convention weekend.

Bright started sixth and didn’t appear to have a chance as the first 19 laps went non-stop with Steve Buckwalter holding nearly a two-second lead through lapped traffic. But the only caution of the event came out on lap 20, with Bright catching points leader Steve Drevicki for second just before the yellow flag came out.

Bright took to the cushion to driver around Buckwalter on the restart, and crossed 1.37 seconds ahead of Lincoln’s all-time midget winner. Drevicki, Nick Wean, and Brent Arndt rounded out the top five.

Heats for the 24 ARDC Midgets were won by Steve Buckwalter, Tony DiMattia, and Brenden Bright.

Next Saturday night, August 23rd, the 410 Sprints will be back in action as will be the 358 Sprints competing in the Trail-Way/Lincoln “Shootout” weekend.

SETH KEARCHNER CLAIMS FIRST CAREER 358 SPRINT WIN AT TRAIL-WAY;

Hanover, PA (08/15/14) –“Finally. Finally!!”

So said former micro-sprint driver Seth Kearchner after scoring his first career “358” sprint car win in the 25-lap feature event at Trail-Way Speedway Friday night.

“I’ve learned through the years to run my own pace,” said Kearchner, “And tonight I ran at my own pace.”

Kearchner’s pace was quick enough to dominate the race. The Fairfield driver started on the pole and led every lap, while several big guns in the field had their troubles.

Trail-way points leader Brad McClelland started 12th and advanced through the field to sixth before getting involved in a three-car spin into the infield off the back stretch of lap 14. Dwight Leppo (who was running fifth) and the lapped car of Wyatt Hinkle were also involved, and all three were able to restart at the rear. McClelland changed a flat tire and came through the field to earn a hard charger sixth place finish.

Three-time winner Isaac Sneeringer was scheduled to start on the front row but had to go to the rear after diving in the pits before the start to connect a loose wire. He came back through the field to finish fifth.

Invader Kevin Nouse started third and finished there, with Robbie Kendall starting fourth and finishing second.

“It’s really special when you win a race with McClelland, Kendall, Sneeringer, and Nouse in the field,” said Kearchner, “This is something. I haven’t even won a heat race this year!”

Jeff Halligan finished fourth.

Heats for the 13 “358” sprinters were won by Randy Whisler and Kendall.

Cody Fletcher was uninjured in a spectacular flip in turn one of his qualifying event, and was unable to start the feature.

Bill Diehl was the winner of the 20-lap Central PA Legends feature. Diehl started third and took the lead from Bob Stough on lap 13. He led the rest of the way, with ninth-starting Scott Houdeshall catching Stough for second with one lap to go. Stough settled for third, with Lucas Montgomery and Bill Foster completing the top five.

Heats for the 13 Legends were won by Stough and Chris Transeau.

Michael Goodwin came from sixth starting spot to win his second Trail-Way race of the year in the street stock division. Goodwin took the lead from Joey Harrison on lap two and dominated the rest of the way, crossing six seconds ahead of Dan Furman, who ran the second half of the race with a right front tire going down.

Chad Stine, David Johnson, and Kelly Seal completed the top five.

The race saw the return of Craig Wagaman, who dropped out with a flat tire on lap two, returned to action after making a quick tire change, and then stopping in a plume of steam on turn four of lap 11, ending his night.

Heats for the 11 street stocks were won by Wagaman and Todd Miller.

Points leader Matt Chronister raced to his sixth win of the year in the 15-lap limited stock feature.

Chronister started ninth and took the lead from front row starter Aaron Levin on lap six. He led the rest of the way despite heavy late-race pressure from 11th-starting Cory Weishaar, who actually came from the back after a front stretch spin on lap three.

Tom Senseney (who started 14th), 13th-starting Wesley Kellison, and 12th-starting Shane Miller rounded out the top five.

Heats for the 20 limited stocks were won by Weishaar and Levin.

Next Friday (8/22), Trail-Way will host opening night of the two-night Trail-Way/Lincoln Shootout for 358 sprint cars, the Precise Racing Products 358 Late Models, Limited Stocks, and 600cc Micro Sprints. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. and racing begins at 7:30 p.m.

Central PA 358 Point Series presented by Capitol Renegade

This week the Central PA 358 Point Series presented by Capitol Renegade saw their lone point series race at Trail Way Speedway won by second year driver Seth Kearchner who scored his 1st career 358 feature event win. Seth would lead every lap leading Robbie Kenndal and invader Kevin Nouse. Nouse who made his first trip to the short track in 2014 would score much needed point in the season long standings and take a chunk out of series point leader Brad McClelland's point lead. Brad would come home in 6th place this week and would loose 24 points to the driver of the 4r machine. Nouse has made a statement this week that this point chase is far from over, and McClelland better better be ready for the point series to go down to the final race of the season at Susquehanna Speedway in November. With the Trail Way/ Lincoln Speedway shootout next weekend do not be surprised to see Kevin back at Trail Way as there is a lot of extra money on the line for the drivers who race both tracks next weekend.

The top 10 in points for the Central PA 358 Point Series presented by Capitol Renegade looks like this ...

1. Brad McClelland 777 Pts.(7 Win) 2. Kevin Nouse -730 Pts. (7 Win) 3. Chase Dietz -535 Pts. (4 win) 4. Chandler Leiby -453 Pts. 5. Matt Campbell -451 Pts. (2 win) 6. Robert Kendall - 421 Pts.

Marks And Hodnett Split Williams Grove Twin 20s, Bright Takes ARDC

8/15/14

Mechanicsburg ? Brent Marks and Greg Hodnett split twin 20?s for 410 sprints at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, taking checkered flags worth $2,500 each.

In the 20-lap ARDC Midget feature event, Alex Bright wired the field from the second starting spot to claim his fourth overall win of the ARDC season.

Marks started second in the first twin 20 for the super sprint cars and trailed polesitter Gerard McIntyre Jr. for the first 16 circuits before snagging the lead late in the event.

Even on a restart on the seventh lap Marks had nothing for leader McIntyre but as the leader worked traffic on the fast racing surface, Marks closed the gap and then made a two car pass in the second turn to get control of the race.

He went to the outside of both McIntyre and a lapped car to get control and drive away to the win over the final two miles of the event.

The victory was the second for Marks at Williams Grove this season.

McIntyre Jr. settled for second followed by Hodnett, Pat Cannon and Lance Dewease.

Sixth through 10th went to Don Kreitz Jr., Adrian Shaffer, Stevie Smith, Ryan Smith and Adam Wilt.

Marks drew a six inversion to start the second feature, which placed Kreitz and Dewease on the front row for the green flag.

Kreitz jumped out to the lead after a first turn duel with Dewease on the start as Hodnett got around Dewease to take second on the first circuit.

Kreitz ran through the middle of the race track during his run at the front but Hodnett was clearly quickening on the cushion and as the race hit the halfway point, Hodnett was glued to Kreitz?s bumper.

And before lap 11 could be completed Hodnett took the lead from Kreitz.

The field was working on lap 12 when the red suddenly appeared for a violent first turn flip by earlier winner Marks who reportedly blew a tire.

Kreitz made an attempt to reclaim the lead on the restart but was no match for Hodnett as he streaked away to his third win of the season at the track.

Kreitz was second followed by a surging Stevie Smith, Dewease and Adrian Shaffer.

Sixth through 10th went to Ryan Smith, Doug Esh, Adam Wilt, Alan Krimes and Brian Montieth.

Fast time over the 26 car field was set by Kreitz with a lap of 16.537 seconds.

Twin qualifiers went to Lafferty and Esh.

Bright led the entire distance in the ARDC main event after the initial start was red flagged for hard contact with the outside turn three wall by polestitter Justin Grosz.

Bright was chased by Bruce Buckwalter Jr. early before point leader Steve Drevicki took second away at the halfway point.

Running in third, Buckwalter got high with little more than an lap to go and gave up a podium finish to Trevor Kobylarz for the spot.

PJ Gargiulo rode home fourth followed by Brenden Bright.

Heats for the 21-car field went to Brenden Bright, Drevicki and Kobylarz.

Aug. 23 410 sprint Twin 25s and Aug. 30 late model Renninger Memorial in sight

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

8/10/14

Port Royal – Port Royal Speedway will present DMI Free Hot Dog Night this Saturday, August 16 at 7 pm featuring a three division racing program of Aumiller’s Insurance 410 sprints, Jake’s Carts/Enviroman Products super late models and the Gray’s Auto – Towing – Licensing 355 econo late models.

Courtesy of DMI of Lancaster, the first 250 paid general admissions through the gate this week will receive a voucher for a FREE HOT DOG at the event.

The racing program will be highlighted by a 20-lap Econo Late Model Championship paying $750 to win while also carrying an increased purse.

Port Royal Speedway is in the midst of an impressively competitive season involving the 410 sprints and super late models.

On August 9 Lance Dewease became the 12th different sprint car winner in 14 events held for the class at the track this season while Dylan Yoder became the 11th winner in 11 races so far this year at the track for the super late models.

The August 16 event is a precursor to the revamped August 23 Open Wheel Madness program featuring Twin 25-lap features for the 410 sprints along with a full program of River Valley Builders 305 sprints.

Both of the Twin 25s on August 23 for the super sprints will carry full purses and pay full points toward the 2014 track title.

The winner of the first 410 sprint main on August 23 will pull an inversion pill to set the starting lineup for the second race.

The URC Sprints have been removed from the August 23 program.

The super late models take center stage on August 30 for the 160th annual Juniata County Fair Opener as they compete in the prestigious, heralded Butch Renninger Memorial for the stock cars.

The Renninger Memorial will pay a hefty $3,000 to win for the 33-lap contest that will also pay lap money as well as a hefty purse for the super lates in honor of the late track titlist.

Brad would be pressured most of the way by Jeff Rohrbaugh but a late caution would enable Brad to pull away at the end of the race for his 7th win of the season tying Nouse for most wins in the 358 division. Nouse would run third most of the race but would loose the spot on the last corner to hard charging youngster Chase Dietz who battled back from an early wreck to steal third at the finish line.

SMITH SCORES EMOTIONAL KRAMER CUP WIN; JIM YODER HOLDS OFF STEVE CAMPBELL FOR LATE MODEL WIN; KYLE BACHMAN WINS 44TH CAREER PRO STOCK FEATURE

SELINSGROVE, Pa. - Mark Smith ran his winning streak to to three straight on Saturday night at Selinsgrove Speedway as he drove past race leader Ryan Kissinger on a lap-20 restart to claim the inaugural win in the 25-lap Kramer Cup in United Racing Company 360 sprint car action.

Other winners on Saturday night were Jim Yoder (late models) and Kyle Bachman (pro stocks).

Selinsgrove Speedway will present a regular four-division show on Sat., Aug. 9, of 360 sprint cars, late models, pro stocks and roadrunners. Selinsgrove Raceway Park will present a program of go-karts and micro sprint cars on Friday, Aug. 11 at 7.

After an initial false start, Troy Betts lead the opening lap of the 25-lap sprint car feature that honored the late Kramer Williamson, the 1978 Selinsgrove Speedway sprint car track champion with Ryan Kissinger and T.J. Stutts right in his tire tracks.

On lap 3, Kissinger passed Betts on the high side of Turn 2 for the lead and one lap later, Stutts got by Betts for the runner-up spot. Kissinger and Stutts then begin a series of slide jobs over the next several laps as they battled for the lead before the first caution came out on lap 7 for Colby Womer who slowed in Turn 4.

On the restart, Stutts got a run on Kissinger and took the lead but Kissinger gained the spot right back as he drove around Stutts on the high side in Turn 4 on lap 8. Smith, who started ninth, moved into the top five on lap 10 and took over the runner-up sport from Stutts on lap 15.

The second caution of the race came on lap 20 for debris as Jimmy Stitzle spun in front of the leaders in Turn 3. Under the caution, Stutts pulled into the pits with mechanical issues.

On the double-file restart, Smith would pass Kissinger on the low side of Turn 1 to go on and lead the final five laps of the race. It was his sixth win of the year at Selinsgrove and his 10th career win, moving him into seventh place on the all-time 358-360 sprint car win list.

Kissinger held on for second with Robbie Stillwaggon, Mike Walter and Davie Franek, who came from 15th, rounding out the top five. Sixth through 10th were Josh Weller, Curt Michael, Jason Shultz, Hunter Schuerenberg and Larry Kelleher.

In the 25-lap late model feature, Scott Richwine paced the first seven circuits before Jim Yoder made an inside pass on him as the pair raced off of Turn 4. The first caution came out on lap 8 for Meade Hahn who had a tire let go entering Turn 1.

On the restart, Yoder led Richwine with Chad David, Hayes Mattern and Jim Bernheisel in tow as several cautions plagued the middle part of the race. Bernheisel moved into second on lap 13 before points leader Steve Campbell moved past him on lap 17. Campbell closed in on Yoder over the final few lap and was within striking distance on the final lap when he momentarily got held up by a lapped car.

Yoder would go on to win his 12th-career late model feature over Campbell by .095 seconds.

Jeff Rine, Bernheisel and Dan Stone rounded out the top five. Sixth through 10th were Matt Cochran, Dave Zona, Bryan Bernheisel, Tony Adams and Hayes Mattern.

Kyle Bachman raced to his division leading 44th pro stock feature win in the 12-lap main event. Cory Long led the majority of the race whiled holding off Peanut Heintzelman, Nathan Long and Brad Mitch in the early goings.

The race was slowed by three cautions.

Bachman made the winning move late in the race as points leader Mitch finished second with N. Long, C. Long and Derrick Garman rounding out the top five. Sixth through 10 were A.J. Stroup, Tommy Slanker, Kury Wray, Adam Campbell and Jamin Chapman.
