Special, Limited Edition Shirts To Be Offered, Over $34,000 in prize money for sprints!

4/23/14

Port Royal – Port Royal Speedway’s Bob Weikert Memorial will play host to a meeting of some of the best sprint car drivers in the nation this Saturday night, April 26.

Invaders on hand to battle will be travelers like Dale Blaney, Tim Shaffer, Danny Holtgraver, Chad Kemenah and Jac Haudenshild to battle the likes of locals Lance Dewease, Doug Esh, Greg Hodnett, Danny Dietrich and more.

The event will pit the local 410 sprint stars known as the Pennsylvania Posse against the All Stars Circuit of Champions Sprints drivers in a 29-lap, $10,000 to win, $100 to lead a lap main event that even pays $500 to start.

Time trials being at 7 pm with general admission gates opening at 4 pm.

Adult general admission for the show is set at just $22 with students ages 12 – 18 admitted for JUST $5.

Fans attending will have a fleeting opportunity to purchase a special commemorative Bob Weikert Memorial Port Royal Speedway shirt as produced by the Weikert family.

The shirts will be available on speedway grounds during the night in a very limited quantity.

Weikerts Livestock will be giving the first 400 fans entering the grandstand a free Weikert hat or can cooler. PLUS, 20 five-pound packages of prime beef will also be given away to general admission fans and five girls and five boys bicycles will be given away to kids ages 11 and under.

Fans can meet and greet former Weikert No. 29 drivers Paul Pitzer and Len Krautheim III., behind the grandstand from approximately 5 – 6 pm.

Danny Dietrich will also be in attendance for the autograph session along with his replica No. 29 sprint car that he will campaign in the event. Also on display will be a restored Weikert No. 29 as driven by Pitzer.

Each lap of the Weikert feature will pay $100 to lead with heats paying $50 to win courtesy of Packers Concessions and fast time will pay at least $400 in memory of Port Royal Weikert fan Raymond Jacobs.

Bob Weikert was one of the most prosperous and prolific sprint car owners to ever grace the sport at Port Royal, in the region and across the nation and the Port Royal Weikert Memorial has become a keystone of the Port Royal and Central Pennsylvania yearly schedule.

Last year thousands flocked to the speedway to witness the event that saw three race leaders including Brad Sweet, Tim Shaffer and finally Doug Esh who took the victory.

Also on Saturday’s racing card will be the Gray’s Auto & Towing 355 Econo late models and the Len Krautheim Auto Sales Xtreme stocks.

4/20/14

Mechanicsburg – The All Star Circuit of Champions Sprints are set to compete at Williams Grove Speedway this Friday, April 25 at 7:30 pm.

The event will be the first attack of the year on the track by an invading circuit set to do battle with the Pennsylvania Posse sprint stars.

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

The ARDC Midgets are also on the card.

The race will be the second leg of the 2014 Diamond Series at the track after xxx took last week’s Tommy Hinnershitz Memorial Spring Classic event to kick off this year’s series.

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.

Last year’s All Stars shows at the track were taken by Posse drivers Don Kreitz Jr and Danny Dietrich.

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 25 All Stars racing program.

Drivers frequenting the All Stars circuit this season include perennial champions Tim Shaffer and Dale Blaney, Jac Haudenschild, Chad Kemenah, Caleb Helms, Trey Gustin and Danny Holtgraver.

The All Stars will return to the track for a second 2014 race date on June 13.

The Williams Grove Speedway Saturday Series races begin on April 26 with the Super Sportsman, 358 late models and street stocks on the program at 6:30 pm.

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

LINCOLN SPEEDWAY

Abbottstown, PA

UPCOMING SHOW:

Sat., April 26, 2014 (7 PM) - 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints, and Central PA Legends

ALAN KRIMES WINS SPRINT SPRING CHAMPIONSHIP AT LINCOLN SPEEDWAY FOR SECOND WIN IN-A-ROW;

Kevin Nouse Wins Second In-a-row in 358 Sprints;

15 Year Old Female Racer Michelle Walls Wins Career First in Street Stocks

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 4/19/2014 – Alan Krimes summed it up best in victory lane Saturday night at Lincoln Speedway.

“I don’t know if I won that race or just didn’t lose it,” said Krimes after climbing from his Midnight Antiques, Conestoga Valley Garage, Krimes Racing Engines No. 87. Sprinter in victory lane following his win in the 30-lap 410 Sprint car Spring Championship.

It was a race that saw several red flags and in one lap that saw nine of the top 10 running cars dropping from contention due to various reasons. But Krimes missed all of the crashes and won the battle of attrition to score his second straight victory in as many weeks and upped his career total to 15 in the Pigeon Hills.

“I thought it was going to be pretty tough starting back there tonight because I knew the best we could start was 12th and ended up starting 13tth,” said Krimes. “Then everybody started dropping out and I thought we might not have to pass any cars tonight if they all keep dropping out.”

All of the craziness started on lap five when Steve Owings spun, collecting Nathan Berwager, and Brian Montieth who flipped. Aaron Ott also flipped in turn three after a reported stuck throttle.

On the restart, Tim Wagaman and Adam Wilt tangled collecting point leader Danny Dietrich, who did everything but flip on the front stretch.

Second-place running Billy Dietrich then stopped on the next restart which made him the ninth car inside the top 10 to drop out. That left only Will Rose, who had led the race from the green flag, the lone top 10 car on the track.

When the dust settled, Krimes, Jim Siegel, Brent Marks and Robbie Kendall all entered the top five with Krimes storming by Rose to take the lead with six laps complete.

Krimes continued to lead Siegel as the pair closed on lapped traffic when Tyler Ross and Wilt tangled in turn three right in front of the leaders. Siegel took evasive action to miss the incident but Marks wasn’t as lucky and spun into Wilt.

Montieth advanced through the field after his flip to move into the top five on lap 18 and then took fourth on the next circuit. But that would be as far as Montieth, the four-time track champion, would make it as Krimes held off Siegel in heavy lapped traffic over the final few laps to pick up the win.

“We made a few changes under that one red and freed the car up a little bit but we could have been better,” said the Denver driver after earning the $4,000 paycheck. “Our car has been real good every time out it seems so we’re hoping for a good season. I don’t know that I’ve ever won two in-a-row, and like I said, I don’t know that we would have won tonight if everyone wouldn’t have had problems so we got lucky.”

Siegel finished in the runner-up spot ahead of Kendall, Montieth and Gerard McIntyre, Jr.

Kevin Nagy crossed in sixth with Freddie Rahmer getting his best career finish in seventh over Danny Dietrich, Austin Hogue and Cory Haas.

Sprint car heat races were won by Siegel, Dietrich and Ott with Marks topping the consolation for the 29 car field.

Kevin Nouse raced his way from his 12th starting spot to score an impressive win in the 20-lap feature for his second win in-a-row at Lincoln in 358 Sprint car action.

The Mechanicsburg driver worked his way into second spot by lap eight and made the race winning move by Jay Galloway on the 15th lap. From there Nouse drove away to fourth career win in the Pigeon Hills.

Nouse did have several close calls during the feature before bringing his Bulls-Eye Express, McKeehan Motorsports No. 4R sprinter to victory lane.

Galloway finished second followed by Brian Allman, Chase Dietz and Chandler Leiby with Matt Campbell, Matt Findley, Brie Hershey, Mike Bittinger and Zach Eucalano rounding out the top 10 finishers.

Heats for the 27 358 sprint cars were won by Rick Horn, Nouse and Dietz with Tyler Esh topping the consolation.

At the age of just 15, lady racer Michelle Walls captured his first ever street stock feature win in the only appearance of the season by the division this season at Lincoln.

The Gettysburg driver started fourth and took the lead on the 12th lap from Gary Potts and held on over the final eight laps in the win over Potts, Walt Lemmon, Bob Scott, Jr. and Chris Heller.

Street stock heat wins went to Gary Potts and Bob Scott, Jr.. There were 12 cars pitside.

Next Saturday, April 26th, it will be another three-division show as the Lawrence Chevrolet 410 Sprinters will be joined by the 358 Sprints, and Central PA Legends. Racing gets underway at 7 PM, with gates opening at 5 PM.

MARK SMITH DOMINATES IN 67TH URC SPRINT CAR SEASON OPENER; CAMPBELL “COMES HOME” FOR 45TH CAREER LATE MODEL VICTORY; MITCH & BISSINGER REPEAT IN PRO STOCKS & ROADRUNNERS

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Mark Smith of Sunbury took advantage of his pole starting position by wiring the field for his first victory of the season in Saturday night’s 67th United Racing Company (URC) 360 sprint car season opener at Selinsgrove Speedway.

Smith was awarded the pole position in the 25-lap feature by Mike Walter of Selinsgrove in the “revenge draw,” which determined the first nine starting positions in the 24-car field. Smith was behind the wheel of the Mach 1 Chassis house-car for the $2,500 win, which was his sixth career in 358-360 sprint car competition at the track.

Saturday night was the first of six race dates that will be sanctioned by URC at Selinsgrove in 2014. The next URC race at the track will be the Jack Gunn Memorial Challenge Race at 7 p.m. Saturday, May 10.

Steve Campbell of Danville inherited the lead on lap seven from Jeff Rine of Danville and drove to his first win of the season and the 45th of his career in the 25-lap super late model feature. Campbell, who referred to Selinsgrove Speedway as his “home track” in Victory Lane, owns a combined 81 career victories at the speedway.

Brad Mitch of McClure and Keith Bissinger of Orangeville repeated wins in the 15-lap pro stock and 12-lap roadrunner features, respectively.

Selinsgrove Speedway will present a four division show of 358-360 sprint cars, late models, pro stocks, and roadrunners at 7 p.m. Saturday, April 26, on Family Night, featuring $20 general admission for immediate families (which will include parents and students ages 17 and under with student IDs).

On the initial start of the sprint car feature, 14th-place starter Colby Womer slammed the second turn wall and escaped injury. When the race restarted, polesitter Mark Smith powered into the lead with third-place starter Josh Weller racing in second.

After five laps, Smith held a sizeable lead over Weller, second-place starter Ryan Kissinger, eighth-place starter Davie Franek, and 10th-place starter Robbie Stillwaggon. By lap 10, Smith began to encounter slower traffic as the race for third intensified between Kissinger and Stillwaggon. Two laps later, after securing third, Stillwaggon rocketed by Weller for the runner-up position.

A double-file restart on lap 18 placed Smith and Stillwaggon side-by-side on the front row. When the race resumed, Smith was challenged by Stillwaggon for the lead to no avail. At the checkered flag, Smith won the race by just .91 of a second over Stillwaggon, Kissinger, Franek, and 11th-place starter Larry Kelleher.

Jeff Rine started on the front row for the late model feature and steered into the early lead over polesitter Bryan Bernheisel. At the completion of the first lap, fourth-place starter Steve Campbell horsepowered his way into the runner-up position.

With a commanding lead, Rine was forced to withdraw from the race on lap six when his car reportedly developed driveline issues. Campbell inherited the lead at Rine’s expense and never looked back.

On a lap 12 restart, Campbell set the pace while a torrid battle for second unfolded behind him between Bernheisel, third-place starter Ken Trevitz, sixth-place starter Jim Yoder, and fifth-place starter Chad Hollenbeck.

With five laps remaining, 11th-place starter Hayes Mattern advanced to fifth. In the final laps, Trevitz and Yoder began to erase Campbell’s lead margin. At the checkered flag, Campbell was victorious by just 1.06 seconds over Trevitz, Bernheisel, Yoder, and Mattern.

Polesitter Andrew Shoop led the first four laps of the pro stock feature until he drifted into the high lane in turn two and allowed third-place starter Brad Mitch to power underneath him for the lead. Mitch quickly opened up a comfortable lead over Shoop, second-place starter Brandon Moser, and fourth-place starter Derrick Garman.

At the midway point, Garman began to show a lot of speed and soon powered into the runner-up position with his sights set on Mitch. In the final laps of the race, Garman began to close in on Mitch but ran out of the time. At the finish, Mitch was victorious by one second over Garman, Shoop, eighth-place starter Nathan Long, and sixth-place starter Kyle Bachman.

Outside front row starter John Schoch stormed into the lead in the roadrunner feature with fourth-place starter and the previous week’s winner Keith Bissinger in pursuit. On the second circuit, Bissinger took command of the field with an inside pass in turn two. At the same time, eighth-place starter John Fowler Jr. advanced to third.

Bissinger held a strong lead until a last-lap chase to the checkered flag when he reportedly started to sense mechanical issues with his race car. At the finish, Bissinger was victorious by a mere .69 of a second over Schoch, Fowler, Curtis Lawton, and defending champion Brian Johnson.

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

Blaney Invades And Wins Port Royal, Preps For Weikert Memorial Next Week

Schadel Breaks Late Model Dry Spell, Braim Gets 305 Sprints

4/19/14

Port Royal – There’s something about Easter Saturday at Port Royal Speedway that suits the racing Blaney brothers.

Last year on Easter eve it was Dave Blaney invading and winning in the 410-sprint division at the oval and this year it was his brother Dale who pulled of the same feat, taking Saturday night’s 25-lap sprint main with an impressive performance through traffic.

Herndon’s Brett Schadel broke a more than year long dry spell in the late model division by beating Mike Lupfer to the finish line while Turbotville’s John Braim scored his first career win at Port Royal in the 305 sprint division.

Blaney of Hartford, Oh., who recently notched his 100th career All Star Circuit of Champions sprint car circuit victory, showed up at Port Royal Saturday night in order to prepare for next Saturday’s ASCoC Bob Weikert Memorial and he couldn’t get more prepared.

He lined up on the pole for the start of the 25-lap feature and watched as Justin Barger of Montrose, Ny., led the first circuit before he took over.

And from there Blaney began an assault on the field in the non-stop event that saw him move into lapped traffic on the seventh tour.

Greg Hodnett, who started eighth in the field, would eventually end up second, taking over the spot from Barger with five laps to go.

But by the time he had secured the spot, Blaney was in the middle of the backstretch as he crossed the start -finish line on the frontstretch.

Hodnett was unable to bite into Blaney’s massive lead before the finish however, instead riding home second by 6.392 seconds.

Barger finished a solid third.

Sixth starter Lucas Wolfe gained late in the race to end up fourth with Mike Wagner finishing fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to 12th starter Rick Lafferty, Doug Esh, Blane Heimbach, Dave Blaney and Chad Layton

The win was the second of Blaney’s career at Port Royal.

Heats for the 25-car field went to Barger, Layton and Wagner.

Schadel had the pole for the 20-lap late model main and allowed Matt Parks to lead the first lap before driving into command.

Shortly after getting the lead his pace was slowed however with two laps down.

Another caution flag with five down found Mike Lupfer restarting second.

Schadel was unshakable during the balance of the event, even upon entering lapped traffic with three laps to go.

It was about the same time that he was forced to forsake his chosen bottom groove as he worked around the backmarkers but even then Lupfer was unable to close for the win.

Schadel scored his fourth career victory at Port Royal and his first since September, 2012.

Lupfer got second by .841 seconds.

Justin Kann drove from seventh to third at the finish followed by Eric Zembower and Parks.

Sixth through 10th went to Rance Garlock, Tim Smith Jr., Scott Haus, Mitch Hack and Nick Dickson.

Heats for the 23-car field went to Dustin Hoffman, Kann and Parks.

Braim wired the field for the 20-lap 305 sprint feature win and the third of his overall career.

A restart on the eighth lap placed prior winner Tyler Bear on Braim’s tail for the return to action but a battle never developed with Braim instead pulling away during the late stages.

Bear was second with seventh starter Kody Lehman finishing in third followed by Jeff Miller Jr., and 16th starter Mike Wagner II.

Sixth through 10th went to Erin Statler, Jake Waters, Scott Ellerman, Eric Parker and Reed Thompson.

Heats for the 32 cars in attendance were taken by Lehman, Miller Jr., Brandon Hetrick and Bear.

The consolation went to Wayne Dadetto.

Esh Wins Williams Grove Tommy Classic For Heckman, Herr Steals Sportsman

4/18/14

Mechanicsburg – Doug Esh of Lancaster wired the field for a $7,500 payday in Friday night’s 30-lap Tommy Hinnershitz Memorial Spring Classic for sprint cars at Williams Grove Speedway.

But his flag to flag performance wasn’t quite as easy as it may sound.

Esh started second in the event that saw only one caution period, on just the second lap.

Esh outgunned polesitter Pat Cannon to lead the first lap before the yellow appeared and a torrid pace unfolded on the restart.

During the first 10 laps, 10th starter Dave Blaney surged forward, taking over fourth on the fourth tour before moving into third with 12 laps down.

Esh entered the rear of the field with 11 laps away and found fifth starter Brian Montieth chasing him in second after finally getting by Cannon for the spot a lap earlier.

Through heavy lapped traffic Esh preserved his lead all the while with Montieth bearing down on him for the win as the race moved past the halfway point.

Esh escaped disaster on the 16th tour and again on the 18th lap after contact with lapped cars, Chad Layton first and then Brent Marks.

And then just as he settled down after the Marks incident, Montieth pounced to Esh’s inside as the pair entered the first corner.

But just as Montieth went for the kill and massive slider to briefly take control, his No. 21 mount puffed a cloud of blue smoke and with that the Phoenixville racers chances were over for the victory.

Montieth then pulled pitside and Esh streaked away to the victory, his first in the prestigious event and first at the track since August, 2011.

His margin was that of some six seconds over the rest of the field.

The win was also a Williams Grove career first for car owner Gary and Linda Heckman.

Cannon was second followed by Stevie Smith, Greg Hodnett and Dave Blaney.

Sixth through 10th went to Lucas Wolfe, Alan Krimes, Trey Starks, Adam Wilt and Curt Michael.

Heats for the 32-car field went to Esh, Lance Dewease, Brent Marks and Gerard McIntyre Jr.

The consolation went to Hodnett, who also set fast time in qualification with a lap of 16.488 seconds.

Frankie Herr finally wrestled the lead away from Duaine Smith as the pair raced through the second corner on the final lap of the 20-lap super sportsman feature event.

Smith had led from the outset with Herr moving into second on the eighth tour.

During the final 10 laps, Herr relentlesstly pursued Smith for the lead with Smith performing flawlessly and holding Herr at bay despite repeated attempts by the champion to take control.

But the pressure was too much on the final lap as Herr made an outside whip past Smith as the pair raced onto the backstretch for the final time.

Smith settled for second followed by Scott Geesey, Chad Criswell and Dave Berkheimer.

Heats went to Bobby Hockenberry, Gregg Foster and Geesey.

McCLELLAND GOES FROM LAST TO FIRST TO TAKE TRAIL-WAY 358 SPRINT OPENER;

GENE KNAUB MAKES LAST LAP PASS TO CLAIM 358 LATE MODEL WIN;

BILL DIEHL, MATT CHRONISTER BEST OF LEGENDS, LIMITED STOCKS

Hanover, PA (04/18/14) – Brad McClelland showed everyone Friday night why he’s the all-time winner at Trail-Way Speedway, coming from the back to win the season opener for 358 sprint cars.

McClelland scratched from his qualifying event after blowing a motor in warm-ups. His team returned home to grab a second car, and returned in time for McClelland to tag the rear of the 10-car field for the start of the feature.

It took him just 11 laps to take the lead, sliding under Randy Whisler for the front spot in turn four.

“I want to praise the crew for getting the car ready,” said McClelland in victory lane, “They got it back together just in time. I don’t know what happened to Robbie (Kendall). He would have been hard to beat.”

Kendall led the first nine laps from his outside front row starting spot before he dove to the infield with motor problems during a caution flag for Brent Rumberger, who spun into the infield after contact with Matt Campbell on the backstretch.

Whisler assumed the lead for the restart and led one lap before yielding to McClelland.

Once in front, the Don Beard Racing Engines/Rucker Computer Solutions/Littlestown Auto Care drove away from the field to a 5.82-second win over Whisler, with Seth Kearchner, Campbell, and Zach Euculano completing the top five.

Heats for the ten 358 sprinters were won by Kendall and Dwight Leppo.

Dover’s Gene Knaub drove under polesitter Kyle Lear in turn two of the final lap to claim the win in the Precise Racing Products/Hoosier Tire Mid-Atlantic 358 late model feature.

Although Lear started on the pole, outside front row starter Travis Mease led the first four laps before Lear took the lead. Lear led until Knaub’s last-lap pass.

Lear settled for second, with Mease, Cam Ziegler, and hard-charger Dominic Defino (who started 10th) completing the top five.

Heats for the 13 “358” late models were won by Knaub and Lear.

Tenth-starting Bill Diehl became the fourth different leader by passing Lucas Montgomery on lap 13 to score the win in the 20-lap Central PA Legends feature.

Chad Earnst started outside row one and led the first three laps before Scott Gobrecht took the lead on lap four.

Montgomery caught Gobrecht on lap seven, just before Gobrecht was involved in a tangle with Earnst while for second in turns one and two, ending the night for both drivers.

Three laps after Diehl took the lead, Montgomery was rear-ended by C.J. Quirk. Montgomery did a “360” and kept going, but lost several spots. Quirk was penalized for rough-riding at the end of the event, and was placed behind Montgomery at the finish.

Bob Stough ran near the front the entire way and finished second, with Chris McKinney, Jacob Feltch, and Richard Miller rounding out the top five. Final scoring placed Montgomery and Quirk sixth and seventh.

Heats for the 23 Legends were won by Diehl, Travis McClelland, and Richard Miller.

Matt Chronister took the lead from polesitter Ricky Weaver, Jr. on lap three and won the non-stop 15-lap limited stock feature.

Tom Senseney started second and ran there every lap but the second. After losing the second spot to Chronister on lap two, he caught Weaver for the runner-up spot on lap three.

Jeff Foster, Terry Hartlaub, and Cory Weishaar completed the top five.

Heats for the 17 limited stocks were won by Robert Nicklow and Foster.

Next Friday (4/25), Trail-Way will host the 358 Sprint Cars, Limited Stocks, Street Stocks, and 600cc Micro Sprints. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. and racing begins at 7:30 p.m.

For all the latest news and related information from Trail-Way Speedway, fans are reminded to visit the speedway website at www.trail-wayspeedway.com. The complete story and agate from each race night is posted shortly after the final checkered falls.

Kreitz Returns to Victory at SSP on Sunday Night

Newberrytown, PA (April 13, 2014) – Donnie Kreitz of Sinking Springs took the victory in the 5th Annual Sprint Car Spring Classic at the Susquehanna Speedway Park on Sunday night. Tyler Ross of Lincoln University collected the 358 Sprint Car 20 lapper.

By virtue of winning his heat race and pulling the “no inversion” pill, Blaine Heimbach took the early lead of the 410 Sprint Car 25-lapper. As Heimbach set the pace of the race, with Lance Dewease and Danny Hotgraver in tow, Donnie Kreitz bagan picking of positions from his seventh place starting spot. On lap 7, Kreitz moved past Holtgraver to claim third. At the midway point, Kreitz moved past Dewease to claim the runner-up spot. A caution flag on lap 14 negated the lead that Heimbach had built. With Krietz restarting on Heimbach’s rear bumper, Heimbach took off as the green flag flew.

On lap 18, Kreitz slid in front of Heimbach coming out of turn 4 to take the lead. However, Heimbach would not go away as he pursued Kreitz into lap traffic as the laps wound down. With two laps to go, Heimbach made his move going into three and four but was unable to complete the pass as the lapped car slid up in front of him, blocking him from making the pass. Kreitz went on to take the victory over Heimbach with Lance Dewease finishing third. This was Kreitz’s 30th career SSP victory putting him five wins away from all-time open wheel SSP feature win leader Johnny Mackison Sr. at 35 wins. Out-of-staters Trey Starks and Danny Holtgraver finished fourth and fifth respectively. Heat race wins went to Heimbach, Dewease and Zearfoss.

In the 358 Sprint Car night cap, Chandler Leiby took the lead from the front row. Kevin Nouse immediately began to challenge from the runner-up spot after starting fourth. Nouse took over the top spot on the third circuit. As a wild battle ensued for the lead, Leiby regained the lead with Brad McClelland close behind. Nouse retired from the race on lap 11 when the caution flag flew. Tyler Ross made it a three car battle for the lead midway through the race. With five to go, Ross claimed the runner-up spot and passed Leiby with two to go to take the lead. Ross went on to collect the feature victory over McClelland in second and Leiby had to settle for a strong third place finish. Brock Zerafoss, who finished 7th in the 410 Sprint Car main event, came home fourth in the 358 Sprint Car feature. Scott Fisher rounded out the top five. McClelland and Nouse were the heat race winners.

Racing action returns to the Big Track at SSP on Sunday night, April 19 when Figure 8 Racing returns to SSP along with the Late Models, Street Stocks, Xtreme Stocks, Road Warriors, Mini Vans/Jr. Road Warriors and the PENNMAR Vintage Cars. The start time for racing is 6:00 p.m.

The 410 Sprint Cars will return to SSP on Sunday, May 4 along with the Late Models and Sidewinder Sprint Cars. The start time is 7:00 p.m. for the event.

Weikert Pilots Dietrich, Pitzer And Krautheim Greet Fans At Weikert Race, No. 29 Cars Also On Display At Port Royal April 26 All Stars Event

4/13/14

Port Royal – Fans arriving for the April 26 Bob Weikert Memorial at Port Royal Speedway will be able to meet and greet a trio of Weikert No. 29 pilots both past and present and also take in a piece of history on display.

Signing autographs from approximately 5 pm until 6:15 pm behind the grandstand will be Danny Dietrich, Paul Pitzer and Len Krautheim III.

On display with the drivers will be Dietrich’s replica Weikert’s Livestock No. 29 sprint car, which he will campaign in the prestigious event.

Also on display will be a restored No. 29 sprinter as throttled by Pitzer in the 1970’s known as “Old Blue.”

Affectionately known to many as “Captain Crunch” during his career, a moniker earned by his win-it or wreck-it driving approach, Pitzer is a four –time Port Royal winner in his career and he was the pilot of the restored mount at its retirement.

But the Trevis-built car is the same Weikert machine that famed pilot Kenny Weld used to claim Weikert victory in both the 1972 and 1973 Knoxville Nationals.

Krautheim holds the distinction of being the final driver to pilot the Weikert No. 29 to a Port Royal victory.

He led all 25 laps on May 21, 1994 to record the checkered flag.

General admission gates for the 2014 All Star Bob Weikert Memorial at Port Royal Speedway will open at 4 pm on April 26 with racing slated for 7 pm.

April 26 Port All Star Weikert Memorial Offers $34,000 Purse And Plenty More!

Over $3,000 in contingency cash up for grabs to fast timer, lap leaders, heat winners.

NSCHoF awards jackets to winners

4/13/14

Port Royal –Not only will the April 26 Bob Weikert Memorial at Port Royal speedway boast a feature purse in excess of $34,000, but it has plenty of contingency cash to go around as well.

Sanctioned by the All Stars Circuit of Champions Sprints, the 29-lap main event will pay $10,000 to win and $500 just to start.

However each lap of the 29-lapper, the distance in honor of the famed Weikert’s Livestock No. 29 sprint car, will pay $100 to lead courtesy of the Weikert’s family of lap sponsors.

Fast time of the night will receive a minimum of $300 in honor of late Port Royal and Weikert fan Raymond Jacobs. Jacobs’ son will present the award.

And each heat will pay $50 to win as sponsored by Packers Concessions.

The memorial winner himself, the winning car owner and mechanic will receive certificates for beautifully embroidered National Sprint Car Hall of Fame jackets courtesy of the NSCHoF of which Bob Weikert was an inductee.

Run in honor of late hall of fame sprint car owner, the Weikert Memorial is one of the shining lights of both the Port Royal and All Stars seasons.

The 2014 race was taken by Doug Esh of Lancaster who totaled up some $12,200 for his night of effort.

Esh’s run to the win was far from easy, needing first to pass a pair of previous race leaders, Brad Sweet of Grass Valley, Calif., and Tim Shaffer of Aliquippa, before he got control for the victory.

Driving a replica Weikert No. 29 sprint car, Logan Schuchart set a new one-lap track record in last year’s event.

The Weikert Memorial Port Royal All Star invasion promises to be and in fact will be one of the richest events the circuit offers throughout its 2014 campaign.

The All Stars return to Port Royal Speedway again in early September for the two-day, 47th annual Tuscarora 50 races as part of the Juniata County Fair.

General admission gates for the 2014 All Star Bob Weikert Memorial at Port Royal Speedway will open at 4 pm on April 26 with racing slated for 7 pm.

Big Money Tommy Hinnershitz Spring Classic For Sprints This Week At Williams Grove

Memorial event now pays $7,500 to win with purse of over $30,000 up for grabs

4/13/14

Mechanicsburg – The Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint cars will compete in their first big event of the season at Williams Grove Speedway this Friday, April 18 at 7:30 pm when the 2014 Diamond Series kicks off with the running of the high-dollar Tommy Hinnershitz Memorial Spring Classic.

Fireworks celebrating the oval’s 75th season of existence will also be on the card along with racing action featuring the super sportsman.

The prestigious 30-lap Tommy Classic event will pay $7,500 to win out of a total purse of more than $30,000 with time trials setting the heat and feature starting grids.

The winners share has been increased from $6,000 to $7,500 for the Tommy race thanks to a generous sponsor and historian from the Eastern Museum of Motor Racing who intends the contribution to honor Hinnershitz, the man who won the first auto race at the track in 1939 during this 75th anniversary season at Williams Grove.

Formerly known as the Early Bird Championship, The Tommy Spring Classic took its name in 2007, now run in honor of the winner of the first ever motor racing main event at Williams Grove Speedway back in 1939.

An eventual Hall of Fame driver, Hinnershitz of Oley went on to win the track title that year and again in 1949 and 1952.

Winners of the event since taking the Hinnershitz name have been: Craig Keel, 2007; Brian Leppo, 2008; Lance Dewease, 2009; and Layton, 2010, 2012.

The event was lost to rain in 2011 and last season, thus making Layton the reigning Tommy champion.

The Tommy Classic is also the first date of the 2014 Diamond Series at Williams Grove.

Don Kreitz Jr. is the defending series champion over the batch of races that carries its own point standings and season payoff.

Another Diamond Series event comes up the following week, April 25 with the first appearance of the season by the All Star Circuit of Champions Sprints at Williams Grove Speedway.

The Williams Grove Speedway Saturday Series races begin on April 26 with the Super Sportsman, 358 late models and street stocks on the program at 6:30 pm.

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

STUTTS HOLDS OFF CHALLENGES FOR ESS 360 SPRINT CAR SEASON OPENER; RINE, MITCH & BISSINGER TAKE STOCK CAR VICTORIES

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – TJ Stutts of Liverpool held off numerous challenges to score the 30-lap Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprint (ESS) season opener for 360 sprint cars sponsored by Mach 1 Chassis Saturday night at Selinsgrove Speedway.

Stutts, who has won three of the last four ESS-sanctioned races at Selinsgrove, collected $3,000 for his 18th career victory at the track in 358-360 sprint car competition driving the Mountain View Travel/Mach 1 Chassis No. 23.

Steve Poirier of Quebec was the night’s Fast Tees Fast Qualifier over the 26-car field with a lap time of 17.384 seconds.

Defending champion Jeff Rine of Danville wired the field for his 86th career feature win at Selinsgrove in the 25-lap late model season opener.

Brad Mitch of McClure, last year’s leading pro stock feature winner, scored his 10th career victory in the division’s 15-lap main event, while Keith Bissinger of Orangeville returned to the roadrunner class and scored his 41st career victory in the 12-lap feature.

Selinsgrove Speedway will present the first of six races this season sanctioned by the United Racing Company (URC) 360 sprint cars plus late models, pro stocks, and roadrunners at 6 p.m. Saturday, April 19. Track gates will open at 4 p.m.

The first lap of the 360 sprint car feature produced a few hair-raising moments as polesitter Mike Walter took the lead and fourth-place starter TJ Stutts and sixth-place starter Mark Smith stormed into the second and third positions, respectively. Pat Cannon, who started second, held down the fourth position for most of the event.

The race’s first caution flag unfurled on lap four when Brian Carber’s No. 8C sprinter spun in turn two. On the lap five restart, Walter and Stutts see-sawed for the front spot on the first of several occasions during the 30-lap contest, but it was Stutts who came away with the lead using the inside lane off turn four.

On a lap six restart, ninth-place starter Derek Locke advanced to fifth behind Stutts, Walter, Smith, and Cannon. On lap eight, the red flag waved when Steve Collins and Ryan Kissinger crashed in turn three. Both drivers walked away without injury.

When the race resumed, a war on wheels unfolded at the front of the pack. By the midway point, the race for the lead heated up between Stutts and Walter while the battle for third also escalated between Smith and Cannon.

Davie Franek, who started 12th, showed a lot of speed in the second half of the race and was racing eighth when his car rolled to a stop on lap 19. On the final restart on lap 22, Smith secured the second position and started to track down Stutts at the front the pack. At the checkered flag, Stutts was victorious by three seconds over Smith, Walter, Cannon, and 10th-place starter Brock Zearfoss.

Jeff Rine drew the pole position for the start the late model main event and powered into the lead at the drop of the green flag. The race was stopped on the first lap for a hard crash on the backstretch involving Chad Davis, Eric Hons, Dave Brouse Sr., and Chad Hollenbeck, whose car flipped upside down. All drivers escaped injury.

When the race resumed, Rine quickly checked out from the field despite the subsequent restarts. Second-place starter Tony Adams held down the runner up position while fourth-place starter Steve Campbell raced fourth. In the early laps of the race, fifth-place starter Jim Yoder closed in on Campbell in a race for the third spot.

On the eighth circuit, Yoder advanced to third and started to reel in Adams in the race for second. At the halfway point, Rine was leading Adams, Yoder, ninth-place starter Jim Bernheisel, and Campbell. Yoder powered into the runner up position on lap 17 and attempted to catch Rine.

The final caution flag unfurled on lap 18, regrouping the field for a seven-lap shootout. Rine held the field at bay and posted a convincing 4.9-second margin of victory over Yoder, eighth-place starter Bryan Bernheisel, Adams, and J. Bernheisel.

Third-place starter Brad Mitch rocketed into the lead at the start of the pro stock feature. Mitch was followed by last year’s pro stock Rookie of the Year and second-place starter Brandon Moser for the first two laps until Moser’s strong run came to an end on lap three.

Polesitter Peanut Heintzelman inherited the runner-up position with 11th-place starter Kyle Bachman in the third spot for the restart. Bachman took over second on lap five and attempted to reel in Mitch to no avail. At the finish, Mitch took the checkered flag over Bachman. In the post-race inspection, however, Bachman’s and Nathan Long’s cars were disqualified for rev-limiter infractions. Those penalties placed Heintzelman, Tommy Slanker, Adam Campbell, and Andrew Shoop in the top five spots behind Mitch.

Second-place starter Bob Bussey took the early lead in the roadrunner feature and was chased by fourth-place starter Keith Bissinger for the first four laps. On the fifth circuit, Bissinger made the winning pass by Bussey in the second turn.

Late in the race, polesitter John Fowler Jr. made a charge into second as sixth-place starter Curtis Lawton pulled into the third position. At the finish, Bissinger was victorious by a mere .61 of a second over Fowler, Lawton, Dave Kamp, and Jeremy Kline.

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

Lafferty, Dickson And Yoder Claim Port Royal Features

Over $1,000 raised for American Cancer Society on Race To Cure Cancer Night

4/12/14

Port Royal – Rick Lafferty, 410 sprints; Nick Dickson, super late models; and Andrew Yoder, Middleburg; scored the main events on Race To Cure Cancer Night at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday.

During intermission, the speedway presented the American Cancer Society with a check for $682 comprised of contributions from the night’s ticket sales while another $300 was raised from the auction of an autographed five-gallon fuel jug as donated by B and R Farm Equipment.

Along with some other spontaneous donations, nearly $1,100 was totaled up on the night for the ACS chapter of State College.

Lafferty scored his 10th career Aumiller Insurance 410 sprint feature at the track after taking over from Brent Marks on the eighth tour.

Up until that time Marks of Myerstown held convincing sway over the field after starting on the pole for the 25-lap main event.

Marks entered the backmarkers on the sixth lap and it was that traffic that proved to be his undoing.

While setting a fleet pace, he went to the outside of Davey Sammons on the backchute to put him a lap down when the pair collided, resulting in a flip by Sammons and obvious broken rear suspension for Marks.

Lafferty had raced into second on the opening lap after starting third and was the new leader when action resumed.

Invader Lynton Jeffrey chased Lafferty on the restart with Mike Wagner racing third and the field again entered lapped traffic on the 13th tour.

Lafferty was flawless in traffic but took advantage of a final caution flag with nine laps to go to cruise to the victory on open track over the final several circuits.

Jeffrey finished a solid second followed by Wagner, Dave Ely and Curt Michael.

Sixth through 10th went to Chad Layton, 20th starter Greg Hodnett, Mike Erdley, Doug Esh and 22nd starter Danny Holtgraver.

Heats for the 26-car field went to Esh, Curt Stroup and Lafferty. The consolation went to Blane Heimbach.

Dickson took the Jakes Carts super late model main after wrestling the lead away from Eric Zembower.

Bedford’s Zembower took the lead from the second starting position as Waylon Wagner gave chase.

But Dickson was on the move and drove into third with three laps down.

He had closed in on Zembower by lap eight and after pressuring for the next three laps Dickson got under Zembower off of the fourth corner to take the lead and begin driving away.

Zembower rode home second followed by Andy Haus, who took third with seven laps to go.

Wagner was fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Trent Brenneman, Brett Schadel, Randy Burkholder, Mike Lupfer and Scott Haus.

Heats for the 21-car field went to Dickson, Tim Wilson and Mitch Hack.

The debut of the all-new Gray’s Auto and Towing 355 econo late model class was a good one with a healthy 16 entries.

The 15-lap main event was wired by 19-year old Andrew Yoder of Middleburg who withstood several caution flag restarts.

Tim Krape started fourth in the field and took over second spot with six laps down but was never able to seriously challenge for the win.

Instead, Krape had his hands full with Todd Snook for second before the pair made contact, forcing Snook from the race.

Krape ended up second followed by Bill Henney, Devin Hart and Jared Fulkroad.

Sixth through 10th went to Harold Ranck, Troy Miller, Cody Butterbaugh, Chase Bowsman and Danny Sollers.

Twin heats went to Krape and Yoder

KRIMES TEAM CHANGES “EVERYTHING BUT THE DRIVER,” WINS LINCOLN 410 SPRINT CAR MAIN

Perigo takes Super Sportsman feature; Knaub class of the field in Precise Racing Products 358 late model event

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 4/12/2014 – He gone! That’s the catch phrase Alan Krimes and his followers use when Alan Krimes starts putting his competitors behind him. And he did it short order in Saturday’s ARCH Night 25-lap 410 sprint car feature.

“I have to thank Dennis Kohler,” said Krimes upon exiting his Midnight Antiques/Conestoga Valley Garage/Krimes Racing Engines #87 in victory lane, “He changed everything but the driver there before the feature, and he must have found something.”

Touché. Krimes started ninth, crossed fifth at the end of the first lap, and passed outside front row started Kevin Nagy for second on lap three. At the time, polesitter Tyler Ross held a 1.16-second lead, which was quickly erased by Krimes over the next three laps.

“I knew starting on the bottom was going to be the key,” said Krimes,” The top was real dirty and it was hard to run up there. I got a real good start and I thought we’d be in pretty good shape. I got up to second there pretty quick. The 92 was going pretty good, and he just slipped in turn four and allowed me to sneak underneath him.”

Krimes caught Ross in turns one and two of the sixth lap, and led until eighth-starting Brian Montieth passed him in lapped traffic exiting turn four of lap 22. Heading into the very next turns, Montieth lost the handle and spun out, handing the lead back over to Krimes. No one was more surprised than Krimes himself.

“We came up on a lapped car running on the bottom, and I made up my mind to go to the top to get around him,” said Krimes, “I almost spun out, and Brian got back by me and I turned and got back underneath him going into one, and the yellow came out. I thought ‘Dang it!’ He had me at the line and they’re going to put him back in front of me. I came back around, and he was sitting there, so we lucked out. He would’ve been tough to get by.”

Robbie Kendall inherited second for the restart, but was never able to challenge Krimes, who crossed 1.34 second in front for his 14th career Lincoln win. In doing so, he became the fourth winner in as many races in 2014.

Danny Dietrich came from tenth starting spot to catch last week’s feature winner Jimmy Siegel for third with a lap to go. Siegel, who started 12th, settled for fourth, with Nagy fifth. Sixth through tenth were hard charger Cory Hass (who started 15th), Glenndon Forsythe, Lance Dewease, Ross, and Adam Wilt.

Heats for the 29 410 sprinters were won by Nagy, Austin Hogue, and Forsythe, with Gerard McIntyre, Jr. winning the consolation.

Carmen Perigo, Jr. dominated the 25-lap super sportsman feature, starting third and leading every lap, to score his fifth career Lincoln win. Defending tour champ Frankie Herr was involved in a multi-car crash in turns three and four of lap three to end his night.

After setting a new 10-lap track record in his heat, Scott Geesey advanced from fifth to second on the first lap and ran there the rest of the way, with Russ Mitten coming from 14th starting spot to finish third. Rounding out the top five were Mike Enders and Rick Barr.

Heats for the 32 Super Sportsman were won by Joey Biasi, Geesey, Perigo, and Chad Trout, with Rich Eichelberger winning the consolation. Geesey’s 10-lap track record was 2 minutes, 31.44 seconds.

Dover’s Gene Knaub drove away from the field to score his 15th career win in the 20-lap Precise Racing Products 358 late model feature. Knaub started fourth and took the lead from polesitter Travis Mease on lap four. He led the rest of the way, with outside front row starter Tyler Horst crossing second. Third through fifth were hard charger Kyle Lear (who started ninth), Mease, and Alan Sagi.

Heats for the 19 358 Late Models were won by Knaub and Bobby Beard, who dropped from the field while running third in the feature.

Next Saturday, April 19, it’ll be JOHN H. MYERS & SON BUILDING & REMODELING SUPPLIES NIGHT, featuring a spring championship event paying for $4,000 to win the 410 sprint car feature, plus 358 Sprints and Street Stocks. Gates open at 5 p.m., with racing to begin at 7:00 p.m.

LINCOLN SPEEDWAY

Abbottstown, PA

RECORD-BREAKING NIGHT AT LINCOLN

Ryan Wilson & Kevin Nouse Celebrate Track Prep Man Fred Putney’s Birthday with Records

Abbottstown, PA - 4/7/2014 – Saturday night April 5th Master Track preparer Fred Putney celebrated his 61st birthday by giving the drivers and teams a dream track that saw not one, but two 10-lap track records broken.

In the 410 Sprints, Ryan Wilson ran the fastest 10 laps in Lincoln Speedway history in two minutes 9.444 seconds in the first heat. That not only broke only the current weight-rule record of two minutes 12.817 seconds set by Brent Marks last year on 3/2/2013, but broke the pre-weight rule record of two minutes 12.905 seconds held by Brian Leppo from 3/14/2009.

And then in the 358 Sprints, Kevin Nouse set the tone early on his feature-winning night by recording the fastest 10 laps in 358 Sprint history in 2 minutes 19.97 seconds to break Mark Smith’s two minute 23.41 second record from 6/22/2013.

It was a big night for all, especially for the fans as they saw:

Ryan Wilson record the fastest 10 laps in Lincoln Speedway history in 410 Sprints. Jim Siegel pick up his 10th career win at the Pigeon Hills oval and became the third different winner in three events this season. Kevin Nouse record the fastest 10 laps in 358 Sprint history. Kevin Nouse pick up his third career Lincoln win and became the second different winner in two events. Scott Jorda claimed his first career win in the 20-lap All-American Outlaw feature. And Master Track preparer Fred Putney celebrated his 61st birthday by giving the fans a track to produce all of the above.

It was a great night for all with many more to come in 2014. This Saturday, April 12th, it’ll be ARCH NIGHT in the Pigeon Hills, featuring the 410 Sprints, Super Sportsman, and 358 Late Models. As part of ARCH’s “Cars and Guitars Tour,” the rock band “Seventh Tower” will perform in a special concert in the infield from 5-5:45 PM. Gates will open at 5 PM, with the first green flag scheduled for 7 PM.

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

Port Royal Big $ All Star Bob Weikert Memorial Is Three Weeks, April 26

All Stars event again pays $10,000 to win, $500 to start out of $34,000 purse!

4/7/14

Port Royal – The 2014 Bob Weikert Memorial sanctioned by the All Star Circuit of Champions Sprints at Port Royal Speedway on April 26 will be the richest, most lucrative event for sprint cars contested to date in the east.

The Bob Weikert Memorial will again pay $10,000 to win this season out of a total purse of over $34,000 that also pays a hefty $500 just to start.

In addition, over $3,000 in contingency cash will be distributed via lap money, fast time award and more.

Run in honor of late hall of fame sprint car owner Bob Weikert, the Weikert Memorial is one of the shining lights of both the Port Royal and All Stars seasons.

The 2014 race was taken by Doug Esh of Lancaster who totaled up some $12,200 for his night of effort.

Esh’s run to the win was far from easy, needing first to pass a pair of previous race leaders, Brad Sweet of Grass Valley, Calif., and Tim Shaffer of Aliquippa, before he got control for the victory.

Driving a replica Weikert No. 29 sprint car, Logan Schuchart set a new one-lap track record in last year’s event.

Again this year, each lap of the 30-lap Weikert feature will pay $100 to lead. Fast time will be worth at least $300.

The Weikert Memorial Port Royal All Star invasion promises to be and in fact will be one of the richest events the circuit offers throughout its 2014 campaign.

The All Stars return to Port Royal Speedway again in early September for the two-day, 47th annual Tuscarora 50 races as part of the Juniata County Fair.

General admission gates for the 2014 All Star Bob Weikert Memorial at Port Royal Speedway will open at 4 pm on April 26 with racing slated for 7 pm.

Adult general admission will be just $22 with youth ages 12 – 18 priced at JUST $5.

More news about the 2014 installment of the prestigious Bob Weikert Memorial at Port Royal Speedway is in the offing as details become confirmed.

Williams Grove Speedway Saturday Night Series Admission remains At Five Dollars

Williams Grove Speedway management will retain the five-dollar admission for the 2014 Saturday Night Series. The ticket price will continue to be the lowest in local racing.

Speedway owner Kathy Hughes established the five-dollar admission several years ago. Hughes is marketing the Saturday night racing towards families that are seeking a night of entertainment.

The Saturday Night Series attendance is increasing, thanks to the low-ticket price. Hughes also established a three-division show featuring the Blazer’s Body Shop Super Sportsman, Credit Connection Auto Sales 358 Late Models, and the Aquafun Pools Street Stocks.

Williams Grove Speedway offers families a first-class facility. The front and back stretch have high-rise grandstands that allow families a safe, modern place to watch the races. For those with active children there is the infield area, allowing children to run, toss a football while enjoying an evening of racing.

Several of the family-fun activities will return in 2014. The Meet and Greet will be back allowing young fans to meet the drivers and see the racecars. Meet the Young Fans, held at intermission, will be back; a program that interviews the children. Several other new programs are in the works.

Williams Grove Speedway is celebrating 75 years of racing. The Saturday Night Series is proud to be a part of this historic year.

The Saturday Night Series will begin racing on Saturday, April 26. Racing action begins at 6:30.

 

 

Rodriguez Victorious at SSP’s Opening Night on Saturday

Next Wednesday Test & Tune on April 9

Newberrytown, PA (April 5, 2014) – The Susquehanna Speedway Park opened up on Saturday night for the 60th season with four exciting divisions on a cold and frigid night. Dover’s J.R. Rodriguez took the victory in the Late Model 25 lapper on opening night. Mt. Wolf’s Gary Potts took the win by leading the final three laps of the Street Stock 20 lapper. Scott Geesey of Wellsville took the win in the 25-lap Super Sportsman tour race. Harlon Leppo won the Legends Cars 20-lap feature event.

Devin Frey started on the pole position with J.R. Rodriguez starting beside him at the green of the 25-lap Late Model feature event. Rodriguez grabbed the early lead and set the pace. Billy Wampler started in fourth and made his way to the rear bumper of the leader by the midway point. A few caution flag periods bunched up the field but Wampler was unable to make the pass for the lead. Rodriguez took the checkers over Wampler with Matt Murphy finishing strong in third. Devin Frey finished fourth with Scott Richwine rounding out the top five. Chase Billet and Steve Billet were the heat race winners.

Danny Beard grabbed the early lead of the 20-lap Street Stock feature, however on lap 3 Jasen Geesaman took over the spot. Geesaman held off Gary Potts and Beard until mechanical failure forced him from the race on lap 18. On the restart, Potts set the pace up front and went on to win the season opener for the Street Stocks. Jim Palm Jr. made a last lap pass to finish second with Beard settling for third. Scott Thunberg and Aaron Beard finished fourth and fifth places respectively. Danny Beards and Potts were heat race victors.

Scott Geesey took the early lead of the 25-lap Super Sportsman feature from the pole position. Frankie Herr quickly grabbed the runner-up spot with Chad Trout close in top. The top three battle for the top spot with Herr taking the lead on lap 13. Geesey wrestled the lead back on lap 17 until lap 21 when Chad Trout took the top spot to set the pace. A caution with one lap remaining made it a one lap shoot-out for the victory. On the restart, Geesey blasted back into the lead. In the middle of turn 3 and 4 on the final circuit, Trout made one last attempt to regain the top spot. Trout spun in front of the field, sending Frankie Herr flipping. After a brief red flag, Geesey went on to take the win over Mike Enders and Scott Dellinger. Chris Meleason and Russ Mitten rounded out the top five. Heat race wins went to Jaremi Hanson, Meleason, Trout and Geesey. Bobby Hockenberry was the consolation winner.

In the 20-lap Legends Car feature, Harlon Leppo held off a late race challenge from Lucas Montgomery to take the victory. Montgomery failed to finish the race as he spun just short of the finish line at the end. Bill Diehl came across the line in second, followed by Jacob Feltch, Bob Stough and C.J. Quirk. Scott Houdeshell, Diehl and Leppo were heat race winners.

Racing action returns to the Big Track at SSP on Saturday night, April 12 on York County Racing Club Night with the Late Models, Street Stocks, Xtreme Stock Cars, Road Warriors/Mini Vans and PA Sprint Series. Then the 410 Super Sprint Cars return to SSP on Sunday April 13 along with the 358 Sprint Cars in the 5th Annual Sprint Car Spring Classic.

Heimbach And Wilson Score Hot Port Royal Wins In Cold Opener

Tyler Bear wires in 305 sprints

4/5/14

Port Royal – The air might have been cold but the racing action was hot at the Port Royal Speedway season opener on Saturday night as both the sprint car and late model mains dished out exciting battles for the lidlifter victories with Blane Heimbach scoring in sprints and Tim Wilson scoring in late models.

In the River Valley Builders 305 sprint main, Tyler Bear wired the field for a 20-lap victory.

The Aumiller’s Insurance 410 sprint main found Trey Starks of Puyallup, WA., and Harrisburg’s Chad Layton on the front row with Heimbach lining up fourth for the start.

Layton jumped out to the lead immediately when the race got underway with Heimbach moving into third behind Starks.

Cautions regrouped the field on the first and third laps before a longer green flag run took the field up to the seventh circuit with Heimbach moving by Starks for the runner up spot on the restart.

And by the time the yellow flag again appeared with seven laps down, Heimbach had begun challenging Layton for control.

Mike Erdley lined up third for the restart but was unable to challenge for the lead as this race was to be decided between Layton and Heimbach.

The pair ran closely together for the next few laps, changing lanes at will in each corner as each driver tried to outfox the other and come away with firm control.

Heimbach finally got the run he needed with nine away to drive into control and immediately begin pulling away before entering traffic with 11 laps to go in the 25 tour main event.

The mid stages of the race was all Heimbach as Layton tried to just keep him in sight but after the five lap sign had been displayed Layton began reeling in the pacesetter.

And with two laps to go it appeared the finish would be close as Layton consistently gained valuable ground each time the pair raced off of the second corner.

Going down the backchute for the final time, Layton was close enough to try a last corner swoop around the top to try and come up with the victory however he came up short at the line and instead finished a challenging second.

Heimbach’s $3,300 win was the ninth of his Port Royal career, tying him with Jan Opperman and Rick Lafferty on the all time win list.

Erdley rode home third followed by a close race for fourth that saw 12th starter Brent Marks secure the spot with 15th starter Greg Hodnett coming home fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Justin Barger, 18th starter Nate Snyder, Trey Starks, Steve Buckwalter and Mike Wagner.

Heats for the 25-car field went to Buckwalter, Heimbach and Erdley.

Andy Haus started on the pole of the Jakes Golf Carts late model main and led the first three circuits before fourth starter Brett Schadel took control.

Tim Wilson started second in the field and although he was passed by Schadel early, he refused to fall off the pace and once able to heat up his tires he began pressuring for the win.

He got by Haus for second with nine laps to go and quickly closed in on leader Schadel.

The leader entered the rear of the field on the 12th tour and was a comfortable distance out in front when a caution regrouped the field with four laps to go.

And that started a string of three yellow flags on consecutive laps that allowed Wilson to work on Schadel for the win.

Wilson drew alongside Schadel and sometimes nosed ahead in the corners during the final two miles only to see Schadel lead at the stripe.

But as the pair headed for the final corners, Wilson set up for a final attempt at the lead entering the third corner and he made good on the effort by bolting underneath Schadel deep in the third turn to steal the victory by .142 seconds at the finish.

Haus was third with Matt Parks fourth and Scott Haus in fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Jim Yoder, Mike Lupfer, Chad Hollenbeck, Bryan Bernheisel and Mitch Hack.

Heats for the 23-car field went to Hollenbeck, Parks and Schadel.

Bear started second in the 20-lap 305 sprint main and led the entire distance for the victory that was the fifth of his career at the oval.

Kody Lehman moved into second at the start and finished there with fifth starter Alex Schanz pulling off third at the finish after battling for a top five with Jeff Miller and Nathan Gramley.

Miller settled for fourth with Gramley taking fifth at the finish.

Heats for the 26-car field went to Jason Bergstresser, Bear and Erin Statler.

Bergstresser was running in the top three for a good portion of the race before dropping out with eight laps to go.

SIEGEL CLAIMS CAREER TENTH IN LINCOLN “410” SPRINT FEATURE

Nouse comes from seventh to win “358” main; Scott Jorda scores first career win in All-American Outlaws

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 4/5/2014 –New Oxford’s Jim Siegel started on the pole and led them all in picking up his tenth career Lincoln win in the 25-lap “410” sprint car feature Saturday night.

“The track was super-fast and hard to pass on tonight, said Siegel upon exiting his Mason-Dixon Vault Company #59 in victory lane, “It was a good night to have a little luck and draw a good number for the heat race. Of course, we’ve had bad luck all year and started up front. That was definitely the difference. There wasn’t much passing.”

Actually, there was, but Siegel never saw it.

Cory Haas came from seventh starting spot to actually challenge Siegel in lapped traffic after passing outside front row starter Tim Wagaman on the 17th lap. And third-place finisher Brian Montieth lived on the edge all night and came from 18th starting spot.

“I don’t know where Cory started. I thought I heard him a couple times, I wasn’t really sure,” said Siegel after becoming the third different winner in as many races in the Pigeon Hills this season, “I was trying to take my time with lapped cars, because we tore this thing up on opening day and I don’t want to go through that again. This is the only car we have.”

The last 16 laps went non-stop, with the leaders dicing through the field.

“I knew they (lapped cars) were holding me up, so I thought ‘It’s time to sit up in the seat and go.’ The car was a lot faster than what I was pushing it, but when the track’s like this and there’s not much passing, you have to just make it wide and go as fast as you need to, and that’s what I tried to do.”

Wagaman hung on for fourth, with 15th-starting Danny Dietrich coming home fifth. Sixth through tenth were Steve Owings, Robbie Kendall, Glenndon Forsythe, Mike Bittinger, and 21st-starting Billy Dietrich.

When asked about the early-race challenges of rookie 410 racer Tim Wagaman, Siegel pointed out the abundance of young talent now racing weekly at Lincoln.

“There’s a lot of new faces this year, and it’s going to make it tough until you learn everyone’s tendencies,” said Siegel, “There are a lot of talented young guys out here, and it’s going to be tough here by the end of the year.”

Heats for the 29 410 sprinters were won by Ryan Wilson, Derek Sell, and Siegel, with Freddie Rahmer winning the consolation.

Mechanicsburg’s Kevin Nouse prevailed in a late-race battle with Chase Dietz to score the win in the 20-lap “358” sprint car feature. Nouse started seventh and grabbed the runner-up spot from polesitter and early-race leader Tyler Esh on lap 10. From there, he tracked down fourth-starting Dietz, who had taken the lead from Esh on lap five.

Nouse was on Dietz’s back bumper as the two navigated through lapped traffic with two laps to go. That’s when disaster nearly struck for both leaders, with Dietz getting crossed up by a lapped car in turn four and both cars bouncing off each other exiting the turn. Nouse nipped Dietz at the line with the white flag waving, and held on for his third career Lincoln win.

Dietz settled for second, with opening day winner Niki Young coming from eighth to cross third. Competing the top five were Esh and Matt Campbell. Rounding out the top ten were Duane Watson, Zach Eucalano, Brie Hershey, Chandler Leiby, and Jay Galloway.

Heats for the 19 358 sprinters were won by Watson and Nouse.

Westminster, Maryland’s Scott Jorda claimed his first career win in the 20-lap All-American Outlaw feature event, after finding himself the leader on an 18th-lap incident involving leader Randy Doty and second-place Hunter Nester.

Jorda led the final three laps, holding off Justin Cullum for the win. Third through fifth were Al Daniels, Jim Minter, and Doty.

Heats for the 20 All American Outlaws were won by Doty and Bryan Green, who pulled into the infield just before the start of the feature event.

McIntyre And Shaffer Open Williams Grove Season With Wins

3/28/14

Mechanicsburg – Gerard McIntyre Jr. held off the furious charges of Stevie Smith and Brian Montieth to win the 2014 season opener for sprint cars at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night.

In the 358 sprint main it was frontrow starter Adrian Shaffer who wired the field for the 20-lap victory.

Cory Haas held sway from the start in the 410 sprint feature over McIntyre with Greg Hodnett running third.

The pace was slowed on the second circuit for a stopped Doug Esh on the backstretch and Haas had the field firmly under his control when action resumed.

Hodnett was really coming after McIntyre for second with repeated attempts in the turns when he came up lame, with failed brakes with 11 laps in the book.

On the restart Haas looked good-to-go but his run at the front would only last for another lap as engine woes forced him to stop on the frontstretch, turning the helm over to McIntyre.

The final 13 circuits would go nonstop with all eyes turning to 14th starter Brian Montieth who was up to fifth by the time Haas lost his engine.

Montieth pounced on Rick Lafferty for fourth on the restart and then got by Ryan Smith for third with 14 down.

The front trio remained comfortable distances apart until the five to go point when the rear of the field came into play just ahead of leader McIntyre.

Both Montieth and Smith swarmed all over one another during the late going while the pair as a whole drilled down on McIntyre only to cross the finish line under a blanket with the winner, all three drivers separated by no more than .948 seconds.

Ryan Smith crossed the line in fourth with Lafferty fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Trey Starks, Robbie Stillwaggon, Kyle Reinhardt, Chad Layton and Don Kreitz Jr.

Heats for the 30-car field went to Lafferty, Stillwaggon and McIntyre with the consolation going to Dave Ely.

Adrian Shaffer led all 20 laps of the 358 sprint main for his eighth career victory in the division at the track.

Chandler Leiby wrestled his way up to second by the halfway point but there was no closing on Shaffer at the front.

Kevin Nouse dueled with Brad McClelland early to advance into third for the finish.

McClelland was fourth with Jay Galloway finishing fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Kody Lehman, Brock Zearfoss, Brie Hershey, Duane Watson and Matt Campbell.

Heats went to Shaffer and Leiby.

Thunder on the Hill Welcomes USAC Eastern Storm. . . . .

CALIFORNIA RACER CHAD BOESPFLUG READIES FOR 8TH ANNUAL EASTERN STORM TO OPEN AT GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY TUESDAY, JUNE 3RD

The 8th Annual USAC Eastern Storm is fast approaching with the opener set for the Grandview Speedway on Tuesday night, June 3. Grandview Speedway and the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series is pleased to host the opener. Grandview has been part of the Eastern Storm every year since the Series started in 2007. Five race dates make-up the Eastern Storm with additional stops at the Lincoln Speedway on Wednesday, June 4, New Egypt Speedway on Thursday, June 5, Port Royal Speedway on Saturday, June 7 with the series closing at the Susquehanna Speedway on Sunday, June 8.

One driver looking forward to the Eastern Storm is twenty-six year old Chad Boespflug of Handford, CA. Boespflug’s credentials include winning the 2005 SCRA 360 sprint championship as well as the 2011 Lawrenceburg Speedway track championship.

Chad Boespflug was born in 1988 in Carmichael, California. Shortly after, his parents and he moved to Hanford, California. Growing up in a Hanford, Chad graduated from Hanford high school in 2006. After graduating, He made the move back to Indiana to pursue his dream of being a top ranked sprint car driver. He went to college at IUPUC for two years studying business marketing.

Always up for a challenge and willing to race anything with wheels, Chad lives to race. He has been racing every summer since 1998 winning races and championships from coast to coast. The Hanford, California native grew up racing in California and made the move to the Midwest in 2007. In the first two seasons in the Midwest Chad faced two nearly career ending crashes in 2007 and 2008 but since has been able to bounce back and continue to win on any given night.

“Non-wing sprint car racing is like nothing else, pitching the car at some tracks long before the corner even starts, but staying in control, it’s just such an adrenaline rush”, said Chad.

“The plan right now is for me to bring my personal car out and run the entire USAC Eastern Swing. My car is the #98 that I ran in seasons past. I will be bringing my car with the help of my grandfather and possibly one other person to help wrench the entire week”. Chad continued to say, “We will have some help from some local PA friends and I will be bringing shirts and other merchandise items with me as well”. You can visit Chad’s online store at: www.chadboespflugracing.com

For Chad Boespflug, the Eastern Storm will bring him to five tracks he has not previously seen. “As for Grandview, I’ve heard very little although I’ve watched races from there online. Lincoln is a top notch facility and has a great track prep program and I just can’t wait to get there and see the place for myself”. Boespflug continued, “As for New Egypt Speedway, I’ve heard it is a fun place to race. I’m looking forward to race at all the tracks and to meet new fans”.

“Since some PA fans have heard I will be coming east, I have received several messages about how excited they are that I will be coming to the Eastern Storm. I’ve heard great things of how supportive and passionate the Pennsylvania fans are about sprint cars”, said Chad.

By trade, Chad is a Project Supervisor for Dalton Luebbert Groups, managing the utility and piping fabrication and installation. Racing is an important part of his life and being successful is a career aspiration. “I have to thank all of my sponsors of my sprint car to include Midwest Shades, Bell Helmets, Hinchman, ButlerBuilt Seats, Shaws Vintage Hot Rods, Manvel Motorsports, Creative Finishing, Claxton Engines, and Indy Race Parts”, said Chad.

Get ready for the always exciting USAC non-wing sprint car Easter Storm. They only come east one time a year so block out June 3 to June 8 and check it out.

HEIMBACH SCORES FIRST SELINSGROVE 410 SPRINT CAR WIN IN SEASON OPENER

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Blane Heimbach of Selinsgrove, a 36-time 358-360 sprint car winner at Selinsgrove Speedway, scored the one victory that has eluded him for nearly a decade: His first career win in a 410 sprint car at Selinsgrove in the track’s 52nd consecutive season opener Sunday afternoon.

Heimbach’s $4,000 victory in the 25-lap feature came from the seventh starting position at the wheel of the Goff Racing/Creasy Signs No. 12.

Lucas Wolfe of Mechanicsburg and JJ Grasso of Pedricktown, N.J., won the eight-lap heat races.

On the initial start of the feature, second-place starter Greg Hodnett powered into the early lead over polesitter Justin Barger. However, a caution flag for 13th-place starter Pat Cannon, who made contact with the second-turn guardrail, regrouped the field for the second attempt to start the race.

When the race resumed, Barger pulled into a solid lead and held Hodnett at bay. Sixth-place starter Chad Layton quickly advanced to third while fourth-place starter JJ Grasso and seventh-place starter Heimbach dueled for the fourth spot.

A close battle unfolded for the third position between Layton and Heimbach as the race drew close to the halfway point. On lap 12, Heimbach powered by Layton for third and began to reel in the leaders. Less than a lap later, misfortune struck Barger as his car developed a flat tire, ending his hopes of an opening day win.

The race stayed under green flag conditions and Hodnett inherited the lead at Barger’s expense. Heimbach quickly reeled in the new pacesetter and then made the winning pass by diving inside of Hodnett entering turn one on the 15th circuit. Three laps later, Hodnett’s car went up in smoke and rolled to a stop in turn two.

On the subsequent restarts, Layton challenged Heimbach for the lead to no avail. At the checkered flag, Heimbach scored an impressive victory by two seconds over Layton, eighth-place starter Mike Erdley, third-place starter Lucas Wolfe, and 16th-place starter Steve Buckwalter.

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY RACE SUMMARY – 23 March 2014 410 Sprint Cars – 16 Entries 25-Lap A-Main: 1) 12 Blane Heimbach 2) 7M Chad Layton 3) 11 Mike Erdley 4) 1 Lucas Wolfe 5) 17B Steve Buckwalter 6) 89 Robbie Stillwagon 7) 0 Rick Lafferty 8) 63 Chad Kemenah 9) 28F Davey Franek 10) 29 Ryan Wilson 11) 37 JJ Grasso 12) 10H Danny Holtgraver 13) 27 Greg Hodnett 14) 5 Justin Barger 15) 19M Brent Marks 16) 3 Pat Cannon Heat Winners: Lucas Wolfe, JJ Grasso

 

 

2014 Season Opening Races At Williams Grove Speedway Friday

March 28 program opens 75th season of auto racing

3/23/14

Mechanicsburg – The 2014 season opener at Williams Grove Speedway is set for Friday night, March 28 at 7:30 pm when the Lawrence Chevrolet Sprint Cars and the Tool Shed of America 358 sprints take to the track for the season opener.

The event will open the 75th anniversary season of auto racing at Williams Grove Speedway and fireworks will help celebrate the milestone.

The Cedar Cliff High School Color Guard will be on hand for opening ceremonies with the Williams Grove portion of the 50/50 proceeds being donated to the Wounded Warrior Project.

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

Last year, the March 29 sprint car opener went to Fred Rahmer, who went on to claim the track title before retiring from the sport. The victory was Rahmer’s unprecedented sixth in the event.

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.

Those looking to repeat in this year’s opener include 2002 and 2004 winner Greg Hodnett, who will be making his Williams Grove debut in the Mike Heffner-owned No. 27; 2012’s Danny Dietrich; 1995 and 2006 winner Lance Dewease; and 1992, 1994 and 2001 champion Don Kreitz Jr.

Other possibilities to compete for another opening day win include Stevie Smith and Mike Erdley.

The only appearance of the season by the super late models comes up at Williams Grove during the second 2014 Friday racing program on April 4 along with the 410 sprints.

The Williams Grove Speedway Saturday Series races begin on April 26 with the Super Sportsman, 358 late models and street stocks on the program at 6:30 pm.

Make plans now to attend the 2014 season lidlifter at Williams Grove Speedway on March 28 where kids ages 12 and under are always admitted for free.

DIETRICH CHASES HISTORY WITH 19TH CAREER LINCOLN WIN; Defending champ Young claims opener with new race team in 358 sprints; J.R. Rodriguez takes 358 late model opener

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 3/22/2014 - Danny Dietrich turned in a dominant performance at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night, driving away from the field to win the 25-lap "410" sprint car feature and claim his first win in the Pigeon Hills since last July.

In the process, he moved alongside his dad with 19 career Lincoln wins.

"I sure hope to pass him.maybe even next week!" joked Dietrich upon exiting the Gary Kauffman-owned Sandoe's Fruit Market/Weikert's Livestock #48, "But to get to where I'm at, I have to thank him, Gary, and everyone that sponsors this car. Without my dad, my brother, and Gary, I couldn't do it."

A redraw of the top four finishers from the qualifiers place Dietrich third for the start. He passed outside front row starter Kyle Moody for second on lap four, just before the only caution of the race came out for his brother (Billy), who came to a stop in turn four.

Dietrich followed polesitter Brent Marks for six more laps before making the pass as the leaders hit lapped traffic on lap 11. From there, Dietrich drove away to a 1.78-second win over Marks, with Greg Hodnett, Moody, and Lance Dewease completing the top five. Sixth through tenth were J.J. Grasso, Brian Montieth, opening day winner Adam Wilt, Gerard McIntyre, Jr., and Cory Haas.

"We were real good in the heat there," said Dietrich, "We were trying to make the bottom work down in one and two in the heat. We knew if we could make that work, we'd go workin' tonight. We were happy with that. We did the same thing here in the feature and it worked everywhere we went."

Heats for the 30 "410" sprinters were won by Billy Dietrich, Chad Kemenah, and Grasso, with Austin Hogue winning the consolation.

Defending track champ Niki Young started on the pole led every lap of the 20-lap season opener for "358" sprint cars, holding off heavy pressure from 2013 Williams Grove champ Kevin Nouse for his eighth career Lincoln win.

And he did it with a new race team, now driving for car owners Jeff Boll and Mike Miller in the Lee Alwine Ornamental Iron Works #91.

Though he led the whole way, Young survived a 10th-lap challenge from Nouse, who started tenth and pulled alongside Young heading in to turn one. Young drove low and took away Nouse's line entering the first turn. Nouse settled for second, with Duane Watson completing his best-ever 358 sprint run in third. Lady driver Brie Hershey and Chase Dietz rounded out the top five.

Sixth through tenth were Chandler Leiby, Doug Hammaker, Matt Campbell, Mark Strickler, and Zach Eucalano.

Heats for the 18 "358" sprinters were won by Nouse and Strickler.

J.R. Rodriguez started on the pole and held off the race long challenges of Cam Ziegler and then a last-lap challenge from good friend Gene Knaub in the 20-lap Precise Racing Products 358 late model feature. Knaub, who started eighth, caught Zeigler for the runner-up spot following an 18th lap restart and closed on Rodriguez, but the neon orange #71 crossed two carlengths in front at the end.

Zeigler finished third, with Pat Beard and Tyler Horst completing the top five.

Former thundercar track champ Sam Gallagher was running fourth when he suffered engine failure and came to a stop in turn four on lap 18.

Heats for the 20 "358" Late Models were won by Alan Sagi, Chase Billet, and Kyle Martin.

Next Saturday, March 29th, the 410 Sprinters will be joined by the Super Sportsman and Legends. Racing gets underway at 6 PM, with gates opening at 4 PM.

PORT ROYAL CANCELS MARCH 21/22, Opening Day Now 5 PM March 29

3/19/14 - The persistence of exceptionally cold nighttime air, the expected unseasonable cold air projected to move into the area on Sunday and the prospect for unneeded rain on Saturday has forced Port Royal Speedway officials to cancel both the March 21 practice session and the planned March 22 season opener.

Oval officials have continued to ready the facility on a daily basis for this weekends planned activities despite fielding concerning phone calls from drivers and owners expressing their desire to avoid costly early-season mechanical and equipment woes and failures brought on by being forced to compete in unfavorable temperatures.

Significant facility operational complications are also feared if the oval goes live just prior to the onset of the cold and then is plunged into the cold with its entire infrastructure having been made very susceptible to a damaging flash freeze.

Thus, the 2014 season opener has been moved to Saturday, March 29 with a change in starting time to 5 pm. General admission gates will open at 3 pm

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

Port Royal Speedway Opens This Week, Practice Session Is March 21

Opener Offers 410 Sprints, Super Late Models and Xtreme Stocks Saturday

First 600 Fans Receive Free Sked Magnet From Juniata Beverage

3/16/14

Port Royal – Port Royal Speedway will present its 2014 season opener this Saturday, March 22 at 6 pm when it presents a three-division program of Aumiller’s Insurance 410 sprints, super late models and xtreme stocks.

Port Royal will also host a practice session on Friday night, March 21 from 6:30 to 9:30 pm. The practice will be open to cars from any division currently slated on the 2014 schedule of events.

The sprint cars will race for $3,300 to win in the 25-lap opening day main event on Saturday.

Lineups for all divisions will be set by draw with an inversion used to start the sprint and late model mains.

General admission gates will open at 4 pm for the March 22 lidlifter with practice laps planned for 5:30. Adult admission will be just $15 for the show with students ages 12 – 18 always priced at just $5.

The first 600 general admission fans entering the speedway for the season opener will receive a free 2014 schedule magnet courtesy of Juniata Beverage, located along Rt. 75 near Port Royal.

Last year in the Port Royal opener on March 30, Dave Blaney invaded and picked up the sprint car win in an exciting performance in lapped traffic. In the late model opener last season Hamburg’s Scott Haus scored his only win of the season at the track.

Names like Jan Opperman, Mitch Smith, Steve Smith, Dick Tobias, Jay Myers and many more have graced the winner’s circle at the first sprint race of the season at Port Royal Speedway.

No driver has accumulated more Port opener victories than driver Todd Shaffer of Millerstown. Mr. Excitement took wins in 1995, 1996, 1997, 2006, 2007 and 2008.

Keith Kauffman, the all time winningest driver at the track but now retired, owns four openers, taking his first in 1981.

On the owner side, veterans Gary and Patty Beam share top billing as the most prolific Port Opening Day winners.

Beams had Todd Shaffer behind the wheel for wins in ’95, ’96, ’97, ’07 and ’08 while Joey Gravino won for the couple in 1989.

Famed owner Bob Weikert follows Beams closely with five wins having come with Kauffman in 1981 and 1993, Bobby Davis Jr. in 1983, Doug Wolfgang in 1986 and Jeff Swindell in 1991.

Owners John and Pee Wee Zemaitis have fielded the winning entry on four occasions with three different drivers.

Mark Smith doubled up for the team in 2004 and 2005. Skip Jackson overcame the rain for a win in 2000 and Kevin Gobrecht began a whirlwind run of three victories within 24-hours by claiming an afternoon win at Port in 1999.

Port Royal will present another three-division program including the debut of the newly created Gray’s Auto & Towing 355 Econo-late Models. The 410 sprints and super late models are also on the agenda.

WILT CLAIMS SECOND OPENING-DAY WIN IN LINCOLN "ICEBREAKER 30" Lincoln Returns to Night Racing Next Saturday night

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 3/15/2014 - "On opening day, you bring all your best stuff. You even wear your new underwear."

So quipped Adam Wilt after claiming his second opening day win in three years at Lincoln Speedway Saturday afternoon."

His underwear wasn't the only thing new in the Wide Open Motorsports team. Well-known mechanic Lee Stauffer joined the team during the winter months. And he used some hand signals Adam didn't quite understand during a mid-race caution.

"I knew I had a good car from the beginning and I knew I had to power around those guys or they would have held me up," said Wilt upon exiting his Credit Connection/North York AutoMenders #15, "But, as soon as I got in front in clean air, I saw my new crew chief Lee (Stauffer) come out under the caution doing hand signals. I didn't know what they meant. I don't know if I'm going too crazy on the top and I need to slow myself down or what. I figured I did the right thing."

Wilt started fourth and grabbed the lead from outside front row starter Glenndon Forsythe on the second lap. After a caution for Cory Haas, who hit the outside wall and came to a stop in turn two on lap four, Wilt paced the field until seventh-starting Brian Montieth took the lead away on lap eight.

Billy Dietrich and Robbie Kendall brought out the caution flag with a joint spin on turns one and two of lap 11, at which time fifth-place Danny Dietrich went to the pits with a flat right rear.

Wilt reclaimed the lead from Montieth on the restart, and was doing his best to hold off Montieth when the Premier Auto Works/Auto Locator #21 hit the wall in turn one of lap 14. Montieth only suffered a flat tire and returned to action.

The race went non-stop the rest of the way, with Wilt holding off Alan Krimes and J.J. Grasso through heavy lapped traffic over the final stages of the race. Ironically, two of the cars at the rear of the field at the end were the two track champs in the field. Wilt's final margin of victory in his fourth career Lincoln win was 1.29 seconds over Krimes, with Grasso, polesitter Kyle Moody, and Forsythe completing the top five.

Sixth through tenth were 20th-starting Greg Hodnett, invader Cole Duncan, 410 sprint rookie Austin Hogue, 22nd-starting Gerard McIntyre, Jr., and 410 sprint rookie Shane Hoff.

"This is a great win for a new team. But we don't want to set expectations too high right now, said Wilt, "We just want to go as we go and do what we can do. Starting position was a key factor, but I'll take a win any day. It's tough at this deal You've got 90 per cent of your cars here are just tough to beat."

Heats for the 30 sprinters on hand were won by Grasso, Montieth, and Krimes, with Scott Fisher winning the consolation.

Next Saturday, March 22nd, Lincoln Speedway moves to its first night race of the season with a 6 PM start for the 410 Sprints, 358 Sprint, and 358 Late Models. Gates open at 4 PM.

Williams Grove Speedway Adds New Sponsor To Saturday Night Series

March 15, 2014

Williams Grove Speedway management announces a new sponsor for their popular Saturday Night Series. Credit Connection Auto Sales will sponsor the 2014 358 Late Model point fund.

Credit Connection Auto Sales is a family-owned business, making them the perfect supporter for the family-oriented Saturday Night Series. They have three dealerships located in Harrisburg, Carlisle, and in York.

Credit Connection Auto Sales joins Blazer's Body Shop and Aquafun Pools as the 2014 sponsors of Williams Grove Speedway's Saturday night racing. Blazer's Body Shop is a longtime backer of the Super Sportsman division. Aquafun Pools is the new supporter of the Street Stock class.

The Saturday Night Series returns for its ninth year of racing at the historic Williams Grove Speedway. The series is proud to be a part of the speedway’s 75th anniversary. The three-division show remains the least expensive night of racing in the Susquehanna region. Speedway owner Kathy Hughes maintains a low five-dollar ticket price, marketing the racing to young families.

The Saturday Night Series begins the 2014 campaign on April 4. All racing events will start at 6:30.

Williams Grove Speedway continues to be the Susquehanna Valley's Saturday night home for Super Sportsman, 358 Late Models, and Street Stocks. The series continues to grow and speedway officials are working on more family-oriented projects.

 

 

TRACK CONDITIONS FORCE SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY TO CANCEL WEEKEND RACE OF CHAMPIONS MODIFIED OPENERS

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Extremely wet track conditions forced Selinsgrove Speedway officials to cancel this weekend’s season opening events sanctioned by the Race of Champions Dirt Modified Tour.

The announcement was made at 6 p.m. this evening (Tuesday) following exhaustive efforts by the track crew to get the speedway’s half-mile clay surface ready for this weekend’s Friday and Saturday dual racing programs.

Speedway and Race of Champions officials are exploring options to reschedule the Icebreaker 40 for big block modifieds at the track this spring.

“Yesterday and today were critical to our timeline in preparing the speedway surface for this weekend’s racing,” said speedway publicity director Steve Inch. “Promoter Charlie Paige and his crew had equipment on the track all day. Unfortunately, they weren’t able to make much progress due to the saturated conditions, and it became apparent late this afternoon that we would not be able to provide a race track suitable and safe for racing this weekend.”

The adverse track conditions combined with the forecast for rain Wednesday and freezing temperatures Thursday prompted the early cancellation as a courtesy to fans and race teams who would be traveling from great distances for this marquee event.

Selinsgrove Speedway will host its annual motorsports show at the Susquehanna Valley Mall beginning this Sunday, March 16, and running through Friday, Mach 21.

The 410 sprint cars will make their first appearance of the season at the track at 2 p.m. Sunday, March 23, in a 25-lap feature paying $4,000 to win.

Williams Grove Speedway March 28 Opener Just Three Weeks Away

3/10/14

Mechanicsburg – Just under three weeks remain until the curtain rises on the 2014 racing season at Williams Grove Speedway with the season opener slated to kick off the 75th anniversary season at the oval on Friday night, March 28 at 7:30 pm.

Featured on the twinbill will be the 410 and 358 sprint cars along with fireworks to help celebrate the occasion.

A few days earlier, on March 23 at 1 pm, Williams Grove will host a Test and Tune session for all regular season divisions at the track from both the Friday and Saturday Series programs.

And after the test program, all eyes will turn to the prestigious Williams Grove lidlifter, an event that has been scored over the years by the likes of Kasey Kahne, Jan Opperman, AJ Foyt, Ted Horn and Tommy Hinnershitz.

Last year, the March 29 opener went to Fred Rahmer, who went on to claim the track title. The victory was Rahmer’s sixth in the event.

Other active opening day winners expected to be in the 2014 field include 2012 champion Danny Dietrich, along with Stevie Smith, Lance Dewease, Greg Hodnett and Don Kreitz Jr.

The only appearance of the season by the super late models comes up during the second 2014 Friday racing program at Williams Grove Speedway, on April 4 along with the 410 sprints.

The Williams Grove Speedway Saturday Series races begin on April 26 with the Super Sportsman, 358 late models and street stocks on the program at 6:30 pm.

Of course all of this hinges on whether or not the protracted winter weather abates, giving way to a milder sprint pattern.

Regardless, hopes are high that the start to the 75th anniversary season of auto racing at Williams Grove Speedway will go off without a hitch in just a few weeks.

Make plans now to attend the 2014 season lidlifter at Williams Grove Speedway on March 28.

Kids 12 and under are always free at Williams Grove Speedway.

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

Port Royal March 15 Opener Cancelled, Pushed to March 22

Test and Tune Added March 21 at 6:30

3/7/14

Port Royal – With absolutely no foreseeable avenue to have the overall facility and racing surface prepared for its scheduled March 15 season opener, Port Royal Speedway has cancelled the program.

Significant frost remains deeply embedded in not only the racing surface but surrounding grounds as well and although temperatures over the next five days may inch into the 40’s, the fact remains that long range nighttime low temperature prospects remain well below normal and daytime highs during the period from March 12 through March 16 are slated to be well shy of average.

This pushes hopes for the 2014 lidlifter to fall on the Saturday, March 22 racing program featuring the 410 sprints, late models and the xtreme stocks at 6 pm.

In addition, a test and tune practice session has been added to the schedule on Friday night, March 21, from 6:30 to 9:30 pm.

The test session will be open to all racing divisions that are slated to compete during the 2014 racing season at Port Royal Speedway.

While the racing world waits to see the lasting winter weather come to an end, anticipation continues to grow for the first green flag of the year at Port Royal.

Season seats and admission passes continue to be available at the track.

There is no increase in price for season seats and passes for the 2014 season as all rates remain unchanged from last season.

A season reserve seat for all oval racing events including fairweek races but excluding the Oct. 25 World of Outlaws racing event in 2014 will again cost just $50.00. This pass reserves seats only and is not good for general admission to any events during the upcoming season.

New for 2014 is the declaration of the entire main aluminum grandstand as a SMOKE FREE environment.

Beginning with the 2014 season, NO SMOKING WILL BE PERMITTED ON THE MAIN GRANDSTAND at Port Royal Speedway. This policy is only for the main grandstand.

Smoking continues to be permitted in all other seating and viewing areas aside from the main aluminum grandstand.

The Family Seating area of the main grandstand will continue to be provided in Section C, where no alcohol or smoking has been permitted since 2011.

Patrons are urged to take note of this new MAIN GRANDSTAND NO SMOKING policy for 2014 when renewing or purchasing season-reserved seats for the next year.

General admission season passes are also available, again at a cost of just $300.00, which does include general admission to all fairweek races in 2014 as well as all October events.

In addition, season pit passes are being offered, again at a price of $400 each while reserved fan parking spots behind the grandstand are being offered again for $50.00. Please note that the parking passes will not be good for fairweek events.

Orders may be placed by phone between the hours of 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays by contacting the speedway office at 717.527.2303.

Orders may also be submitted by mail by sending a check or money order made payable to Port Royal Speedway, to: Port Royal Speedway, Box 295, Port Royal, PA, 17082.

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

Port Royal March 8 Practice Cancelled

2/28/14

Port Royal  There will be no March 8 practice session at Port Royal Speedway as the enduring winter weather has already pushed the oval past the point where it could facilitate the practice program.

The 2014 season opener at the track is slated for Saturday evening, March 15 at 6 pm but again, it would seem that the early season timetable for racing in the area including at Port Royal will be dictated by the winter weather clock.

Still, progress continues readying the oval for the 2014 season and the dawning of true spring.

A trio of March racing programs is on the schedule with races following the slated opener on the agenda for March 22 and again on March 29.

Meanwhile, season seats and admission passes continue to be available.

Eleven track champions were crowned and added to the prestigious SSP Hall of Champions list that includes racing great such as Bobby Abel, Johnny Mackison Sr., Gene Goodling, Ray Tilley and Mitch Smith to name a few.

The Awards Gala was held at the historic Valencia Ballroom in downtown York, Pennsylvania in front of a full house of drivers, teams, sponsors and supporters of the various classes that competed at SSP last season. Music before and after the ceremonies was provided by Professional DJ, Daniel Boone. The banquet placed SSP's grassroots racers on center stage after celebrating the track�s 59th year of operation, the tenth season under the Fishers.

The Late Model division crowned Billy Wampler of York Haven for first time in his career at SSP. Wampler won the final race of the season and finished a mere 2 points ahead of 2011 Late Model champion Justin Ehrhart. Wampler�s consistency edged out Ehrhart at season�s end.

Throughout the season, the Cup will be on display at the Eastern Museum of Motor Racing in York Springs, PA (www.emmr.org). The Cup was named in honor of the late Carl Billet who passed away one day after last year�s SSP banquet. Billet was a seven-time Late Model Champion with 57 career feature wins at SSP.

Donnie Broderick of Lancaster won three Xtreme Stock Car feature racesto claim his third career Xtreme Stock Car championship. Along with 2013, Broderick also claimed championships in 2008 and 2010. Broderick�s twelve top-5 finishes gave him the edge to take the crown over Cameron Benyou who finished close behind in second by 18 points. Chad Stine finished in third place followed by last season�s champion Patrick McClane and Johnny Palm finishing fourth and fifth respectively.

The Madison House Recovery Homes Season Hard Charger award went to Cameron Benyou for claiming the most hard charger race awards throughout the 2013 season. Tim Hahn also announced that the Madison House Recovery Homes Hard Charger award will continue for the third straight year in 2014.

The Central PA 358 Point Series presented by Capitol Renegade

 
The Central PA 358 Point Series is proud to announce the signing of a new series sponsor for the 2014 racing season. Capitol Renegade Coaches and Trailers has come on board as the official coach and trailer company of the 358 division. GM of Capitol Renegade Wayne Quackenbush has joined forces with the series to give the drivers something big to shoot for in 2014. The series champion will now receive $3,000 in the season long battle to be crowned the 2014 Central PA 358 Point Series Champion.

 
“We were looking for a way to get exposure to the sprint car teams and I read about the Series sponsorship dilemma in AARN. Knowing the financial struggles first hand of what it takes to field a race team weekly, I felt this was a great way to give back to some well deserving guys.”
 
The Central PA 358 Point Series presented by Capitol Renegade has seen the 358 race teams receive close to $84,000 in the 5 years of the series. This year the drivers will be racing for the $3,000 top prize that will go to the driver who is crowed the champion after a long 63 race schedule which will kick off on March 22nd at Lincoln Speedway. The division will see races at 4 different race tracks. Friday nights the 358’s will see battle at Trail Way Speedway as well as Williams Grove Speedway. Saturday nights the 358’s will be racing at Lincoln and Susquehanna Speedway will play host to 3 special shows through out the season, the final race being held on Novemeber 15th which will see the 2014 358 Point Series Champion crowned.
 
“With our lineup of United and inTech all aluminum trailers as well as our Renegade Coach’s and trailers we feel we have something to fit every racers budget” adds Wayne. “ I feel like this series is a perfect partnership to get our name introduced to our desired market.”
 
Not only will the drivers of the 358 division be racing for the $3,000 top prize this season the 2nd place finisher in the points will receive $1,000. With the help of long time series sponsors Hoseheads.com, PA Powder Custom Powder Coating , Jager Hill Racing, WRT Speedwerx, Delco Designs, and Rucker Computer Solutions this is shaping up to be one of the best season for the 358 division.
 
The 358 division has seen 4 different drivers be crowned the series champion in its 5 years. Jeff Rohrbaugh was crowned the inaugural series champion in 2009, Pat Cannon won the series Championship in 2010. 2014 World of Outlaws Rookie of the Year Contender Logan Schuchart won the championship in 2011. Pat Cannon became the only repeat Champion when he won the series championship in 2012. Last season saw Austin Hogue take the championship in only his 3rd season in the 358 division.
 
The Central PA 358 Point Series presented by Capitol Renegade has been the launching pad for many of Central PA’S and the Nations 410 sprint car stars. Drivers such as Schuchart, Cannon the 3 time defending Jim Nace Memorial 410 National Open winner, 2 time and defending Lincoln Speedway World of Outlaws winner Danny Dietrich, 2009 National 410 Sprint car Rookie of the year Adam Wilt , 2010 National 410 Rookie of the Year Brad McClelland, Port Royal track champions Chad Layton and Blane Heimbach, the 2005 Williams Grove National Open winner Doug Esh  all got their start in full size sprint cars in the 358 division.

Central PA Dirt Trackin’ Show to See Major Changes for 32nd Edition in 2015

Newberrytown, PA (January 27, 2014) – The 31st edition of the Central PA Dirt Trackin’ Show presented by Jack Giamblavo Family of Dealerships came to a close on Sunday, January 26 in the Memorial Hall at the York (PA) Fairgrounds. The show has seen three different producers over the past three years. Change has become the norm for the show however the 2015 show next January will see the most changes in the show in its 31-year history.

Todd and Rhonda Fisher purchased the rights to the show last July from Larry Miller. The first year they vowed to not drastically change things but to only add items to increase the interest in the show that has seen a steady decline in attendance and enthusiasm over the past five years. Their first year was to learn the behind-the-scenes issues and problems that needed to be fixed. “I was concerned about the limitations of the building and the relationship with the York Expo Center staff,” stated show producer Todd Fisher. “At SSP, I can make changes to anything I want, however, the Memorial Hall is their sandbox and I didn’t want to overstep any boundaries.” Fisher continued, “The staff of the York Expo Center was tremendous and extremely helpful. They made things very easy and I can’t wait to work with them again next year.”

Nicole Berkebile, the Jack Giambalvo Family of Dealerships Public Relations Manager repeated those statements, “We were happy to be part of another successful Dirt Trackin’ Show and look forward to seeing it grow over the next year.” A 31-year sponsor of the show, their display of new vehicles included a Mazda 6, Dodge Charger, Dodge Challenger, Dodge RAM, a lifted Jeep Wrangler and a lifted GMC Sierra Truck. The Jack Giambalvo Family of Dealerships features Buick, GMC, Dodge, Chrysler, Jeep, Hyundai and Mazda.

Although the car display count of vehicles was down for various reasons, the quality of cars was spectacular. Approximately twenty-five pre-registered vehicles failed to make its way to the show. The “Best Appearing Car of the Show” was awarded to the Late Model of Alan Sagi who also won “Best Late Model” award. A close runner-up to best appearing was Matt Campbell’s 358 Sprint Car that won the “Best Open Wheel (Full Size) Car” award. Cory Lawler’s Micro Sprint claimed the “Best Open Wheel (Small) Car” accolades. The baby blue Road Warrior driven by Curt McDade claimed the “Best Stock Car” honors. Other winners included Ashley Rumsey (Quarter Midget); Randy Doty (Classic Car/All American Outlaw); Bobby Weaver #20 Sprint Car (Vintage Car/Open Wheel); John Marks (Vintage Car/ Stock Car); Harlon Leppo (Legends Car); and Ryan George (Karts).

Following the awards presentation on Friday night, one major change coming to the show for 2015 will be replacing the “Best Appearing Car of the Show” award with the “Most Popular Car of the Show” award. Attendees of the show will vote for their favorite car of the show and the winner will receive $1,000.00; second place will get $500.00 and third place will be awarded $250.00 for their efforts. All cars must be pre-entered for the show as space will be limited with the additional activities and displays planned for 2015. Details and rules will be released in the near future.

On Friday night, the 12th annual Ms. Dirt Trackin’ contest presented by Zeigler’s Service Center (Spring Grove) was held with 13 contestants vying for the $500.00 first prize. After 8 years of competing in the competition, Biglerville’s Trish Heller was crowned Ms. Dirt Trackin’. Heller explained how determination paid off and what the show means to her, “I am so excited to be Ms. Dirt Trackin’ 2014. My father has taken me to this show since it first opened its doors 31 years ago. Those hours and many Saturday nights at Lincoln Speedway meant alone time together that we couldn’t always have as life gets in the way. Having been unsuccessful many times in the past in the Ms. Dirt Trackin’ contest, I wasn’t sure if I was going to run again, but because of those times with my dad at The Central PA Dirt Trackin’ show, this title meant too much to me to quit on it. It’s for those reasons and my love of the sport that I couldn’t be happier to put my efforts toward promoting this pastime that I love. I will do anything in my power to help the producers of the Dirt Trackin’ Show in order to return it to it’s wonderful past by encouraging more drivers, speedways and sponsors to attend to help promote this heart thumping, exhilarating, and electrifying sport. I am also willing to help owners and promoters of the various speedways to bring new audiences and fans to the tracks.” Victoria Trimmer of Spring Grove was the Ms. Dirt Trackin’ runnerup. Any promoters or owners can contact Trish Heller for any appearances or promotional events through Ms. Dirt Trackin’ on Facebook or at msdirttrackin2014@gmail.com.

Jaynee Zeigler, Pageant coordinator, produced the most professional and efficient contest in the 12 year history of Ms. Dirt Trackin’. Along with her tasks of the Ms. Dirt Trackin’ Contest, Zeigler developed the new Jr. Miss Dirt Trackin’ contest held on Sunday afternoon. Ten girls between the ages of 6 and 12 years of age entered the contest. Tessa Darrah of Red Lion won the Jr. Miss Dirt Trackin’ Contest with her bubbly personality. Tessa’s uncle is World of Outlaws Sprint Car driver Cody Darrah who drives for NASCAR’s Kasey Kahne. Runner ups in the Jr. Miss Dirt Trackin’ contest was Jesse Palm and Bailey Kress who ended in a tie.

The Insinger Performance Seminar Series presented by Sunoco included many informational seminars for everyone. The variety of topics included setups, sponsorships, charities, series information and more. National Racesaver Director French Grimes was on hand providing invaluable information about engines and his Sprint Car series. Scott Still from the American Motorsports Marketing Group shared ways for drivers and owners to find funding for the racing efforts. Jim Bernheisel of Bernheisel Racecars provided participants with invaluable information for all car set-ups. Brenda Wolfe of Northeast Safety Equipment provided information about the latest trends and equipment to drivers about their safety while competing. Mike Miller, product manager for Sunoco Racing Fuels was also on hand to discuss how oxygenated fuels affect engines. Hoosier Tire Mid-Atlantic Tire Specialists Coty Mallicoat and Terry Wilcher provided information about tires to seminar attendees. Rohan Beasley (Sidewinder Sprints) and Chad Earnst (Legends Cars) concluded the seminar series on Sunday by discussing the ways people can have fun at the speedways and getting from a grandstand seat to the driver’s seat of a racecar.

One of the highlights of the show was the speedway in the middle of the East Hall that featured Slider racing for both kids and adults. Local drivers competing against their small counterparts until their leg power ran out. Daryl Winkler from the All American Outlaw Series organized charity races on the Sliders and raised $231.40 for each of their two charities - the St. Judes Children Research Hospital and the Wounded Warrior Project. Plans are already in place to provide a full scale track for the Slider Bikes on the Slider RAACE Speedway complete with wooden guardrails, bleachers and more at the 2015 edition of the Central PA Dirt Trackin’ Show.

Another popular addition to the show was the “Storyteller’s Show” that featured local legends Lynn Paxton and Gary Wolford bantering back and forth about racing memories on the local tracks hosted by John Krall. Paxton, the President of the Eastern Museum of Moto Racing and notable Sprint Car driver discuss the best kept secret in Central PA. Wolford is the organizer of the popular Fish Fry held at the Latimore Valley Speedway Fairgrounds each May.

“The frustrating part of this show is that we have to wait a whole year to implement some new ideas. The show ended with a sense of enthusiasm of all participants and we received lots of encouragement and gratitude for taking on the challenge,” said Fisher. “Like Trish Heller’s determination to keep entering the Ms. Dirt Trackin’ contest after frustration, she is the perfect person to represent the enthusiasm and determination that future shows will be better than ever with many people coming together to represent the sport they love.”

The doors of the 32nd Annual Central PA Dirt Trackin’ Show will swing open to many race fans, drivers and supporters of local short track racing in the Central Pennsylvania area on the last weekend of January in 2015.

For anyone wishing to contact the Fishers concerning the show, they may call 717-292-1696 or email sspracing@hotmail.com.

Changes to the Central PA 358 Point Series for 2014

This season the Central PA 358 Point Series will be making changes in how points will be scored. With car counts falling at all area race tracks, and with it getting more expensive to field a competitive race car this season we will be counting points at each race track but with a twist.

To help EVERY 358 team have a chance to win the overall Central PA 358 Point Series Title only a drivers best finish of the weekend will be counted for the series. So a team that only races at 1 track can still have a chance to earn the overall championship. Drivers who choose to race Friday and Saturday nights will have 2 chances to score their best finish but only the best finish will score them points. So if a driver scores a 3rd on Friday night and a 7th on Saturday they will score 30 pts for the week.

All races at Susquehanna Speedway held during the season will be a fully scored points race, so on those special weekends drivers will have the chance to score points in 2 different races.

To help the teams who choose to race every night, all heat races will award points. The winner of a heat race will score 10 additional points for a heat win and a driver who finishes 2nd will receive 5 pts. So a driver could score 70 points on a normal race weekend if they win a feature event and win both their heat races.

The Central PA 358 Point Series Championship will pay a guaranteed $1,000 to the winner, but I am asking for help in 2014 to try and raise more money for not only the Champion but also for the other positions. If any fan or business would like to donate money to the series I will put it towards the point fund for the drivers. My goal I would like to reach is to be able to pay $1,500 to the series champion plus have extra to give to the 2nd place finisher at the end of the season. Please if you can help this great series out the drivers and race teams would appreciate it greatly. Last season I put a lot of money out of my pocket to pay the series champion as well as the trophy. This year I need some help to try and give these race teams just a little more. If anyone would love to help out the series they can contact me through the series face book page , through my email boogermac420@inbox.com or see me at the track. Every dollar that is donated will go directly to the drivers at the end of the season, so no need to worry about where your money will be going. I will keep a running total on the series website to keep everyone updated.

I will be posting the series schedule very shortly, and if you have any other questions please feel free to get in touch with me.

Thank you all and cant wait to see everyone at the track in a few weeks.

Super 410 Sprint Cars To Have Big Season At Port Royal Speedway

305 Sprint series returns April through October

1/19/14

Port Royal – With nearly 30 dates about to be released on the 2014 Port Royal Speedway schedule of events, over 25 of them will include the high-flying Aumiller’s Insurance 410 sprint cars.

And the first of those more than 25 events is coming up as the season opener on Saturday, March 15 at 6pm when the winged sprints are joined by the super late models in the lidlifter.

The River Valley Builders 305 sprint series will be returning to the track in 2014 as well and will consist of 10 races at the track this season, spanning April through October.

The 305 series will again be highlighted by the third running of the Blue Collar Classic Keystone RaceSaver Sprints interregional challenge races on Columbus Day weekend, October 10 and 11.

The historic oval recently announced the return of the World of Outlaws 410 sprint cars to the track on October 25 for the first time in a decade.

But that show ends the season.

Before the outlaws race in October, the track will be visited three times by the All Star Circuit of Champions Sprints, for both the late April Bob Weikert Memorial and again for the September Tuscarora 50 races.

The wingless 410 sprint super stars of USAC will make their third ever appearance at the track in 2014, in early June as part of the series Eastern Storm tour.

First put on the schedule last year, the Fallen Heroes Championship for 410 sprints will again be the highlight of the Memorial Day weekend Saturday program, featuring fireworks.

It will be just one of nearly 10 races at the track this season that will use qualifying time trials to set the lineups.

The Pennsylvania Speedweek series will hit the track twice this season, first on Thursday, July 3 and again two nights later on July 5.

And the now customary Living Legends Dream Race Honoree Night with an innovative main-event format for the sprinters will again be held on the first Saturday of August.

Back by popular demand will be another round of Open Wheel Madness featuring three prime open wheel sprint divisions, namely the 410 sprints, URC 358/360 sprints and 305 sprints, in late August.

And the 410 sprints will of course be on hand and in top form for four shows during the annual Juniata County Fair, spanning Labor Day week in early September.

As usual the sprints will help open the fair on the night of the Butch Renninger Late Model Memorial on August 30 before returning for the nostalgic Labor Day afternoon classic and the two-day, September 5 and 6 Tuscarora 50 events to end the fair.

And that will set up the star-studded season finale at the track as the World of Outlaws return to the oval on October 25, preceded by a tune-up event on October 11.

The 2014 slate also includes nearly 20 shows for the super late models along with numerous shows for the newly created 355 econo-late model division, replacing the pro stocks in 2014.

Formerly called the “enduro dash” division, several races are also planned for the newly named xtreme stocks.

The full Port Royal Speedway 2014 schedule of events will be released within the next seven to 10 days.

Port Royal Slate Includes First Region Shows For NDRL Northeast Late Models

Nearly 20 Super Late Model Shows Slated

1/17/14

Port Royal – Port Royal Speedway has its 2014 season opener set for Saturday, March 15 at 6 pm, featuring Aumiller’s Insurance 410 sprints and Gray’s Auto and Towing super late models.

The season opener featuring the super late models will be just the first of nearly 20 shows for the big, powerful stock cars at the Juniata County oval during the 2014 season.

The super lates will be the focus of many special shows at the track throughout the year.

Two of the biggest shows of the year will be the first-ever appearances at the track of the NDRL – National Dirt Racing League super late model series, comprised of two northeast NDRL regional events.

NDRL launched its national series in 2013 with stars like Billy Moyer, Shane Clanton, Josh Richards and Jimmy Mars competing as part of its field.

And this year, the NDRL is launching its Northeast Region Series as part of its national competition.

“The goal of the NDRL is to provide the best racing experience possible for the drivers, the tracks and the fans,” says NDRL Northeast Race Director John Stivason.

“We are very pleased to be able to establish our footprint in the central part of Pennsylvania by scheduling shows at Port Royal.”

The high-dollar Port Royal NDRL regional shows will be the first of their kind for the sanctioning body in the central Pennsylvania area and will be the final leg of two-day stands in the state each time they visit Port Royal.

The first special show of the season for the late models at Port Royal will take place over the Memorial Day holiday weekend when for the second year in a row the Fallen Heroes Championships will be staged for both the 410 sprints and the lates.

Also in 2014, the track will host the finale of the lucrative Appalachian Mountain Dirt Late Model Speedweek series in June. The 2014 race will be the Charlie Grinestaff Memorial.

The 11th annual Butch Renninger Memorial will also be staged during the season and another championship event for the division is also slated.

The 2014 slate also includes numerous shows for the newly created 355 econo-late model division, replacing the pro stocks in 2014.

Formerly called the “enduro dash” division, several races are also planned for the newly named xtreme stocks.

The full Port Royal Speedway 2014 schedule of events will be released within the next seven to 10 days.

World of Outlaws STP Sprint Cars Returning To Port Royal Speedway In 2014

Return ends decade dry spell at historic oval during Salute To The King WoO tour

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 1/15/14

Port Royal - For the first time in a decade, the fire breathing World of Outlaws STP Sprint Cars will be returning to the famed half-mile Port Royal Speedway during the upcoming 2014 racing season.

The high-profile show is set for Saturday, October 25 at the Juniata County Oval.

�"We are proud to announce this show as the culmination of years worth of negotiations to bring the best in the sprint car business all back together again at Port Royal Speedway,"� says PRS Promotions pointman and Port Royal promoter Steve O'�Neal.

"�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."�

"�We'�ve now given those fans the best season we as a track could offer by hosting all the best sanctioning bodies in the country at the track in one season, capped off by the World of Outlaws,"� O'�Neal says.

�"We hope the fans see this show as the greatest reward we could offer them in return for their increasing support over the last several seasons.�"

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.

�"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."�

Indeed, the show will pit the best touring 410 sprint drivers in the world, the World of Outlaws, against the also world renown Pennsylvania Posse sprint car stars.

It will be a show that can'�t be missed.

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 was not 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.

The 2014 World of Outlaws STP Sprint Cars event at Port Royal Speedway will hold the distinction of being the final race and venue in Pennsylvania at which 20-time WoO champion King of the Outlaws Steve Kinser will compete as an official full-time outlaws competitor.

The outlaws titan recently announced that he will retire from the full World of Outlaws schedule at the conclusion of the 2014 season, dubbed as the �"Salute To The King� tour.".

Details concerning ticket sales and other news surrounding this special Port Royal Speedway World of Outlaws event will be released in the coming weeks.

But mark your calendars now for Port Royal Speedway on October 25 for what will be the last step in the 2014 World of Outlaws tour before taking on The World Finals at The Dirt Track at Charlotte in November.

And the last chance to see Steve Kinser race in the Keystone State as a full-time World of Outlaws pilot!

Ms. Pattie Brenneman was officially elected as treasurer of the JCAS, a role she has fulfilled as a designee since March 2013.
