SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY AWARDS BANQUET HONORED YEAR’S TOP PERFORMING RACE TEAMS SATURDAY

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Selinsgrove Speedway & Raceway Park closed out the 2017 season Saturday evening, Nov. 11, with the awards banquet at the historic Genetti Hotel in Williamsport for about 250 guests representing the 360 sprint car, super late model, pro stock, roadrunner, and go kart divisions.

This year’s top performing drivers received trophies, jackets, commemorative championship rings sponsored by Foss Jewelers, and shared a $25,000-plus point fund.

Davie Franek of Wantage, N.J., clinched his first career Mach 1 Chassis 360 sprint car track championship with 12 top five finishes including three feature wins at Selinsgrove. He became the ninth different sprint car champion since the speedway switched to weekly 358-360 sprint car competition in 2001. Franek is also a former two-time United Racing Club champion.

In the Jeff’s Auto Body & Recycling Center super late models, Tony Adams of Sunbury and Hayes Mattern of Beavertown were named co-champions when they tied for the title in the final points race of the season Aug. 26

For Adams, the championship was the second of his career at Selinsgrove with one victory and 8 top five finishes. Mattern became the first driver to win a championship in karting at Selinsgrove Raceway Park and advance to Selinsgrove’s half-mile track and clinch a super late model title. Mattern had a break-out season with 7 top five finishes, including three feature wins.

Tommy Slanker of York clinched his first career A&A Auto Stores pro stock title with seven feature wins, the most of any driver in any division at the track this season. Slanker became the 13th different driver to win a championship in 20 years of pro stock racing at Selinsgrove.

Keith Bissinger of Orangeville and Will Brunson of Middleburg were also co-champions in the Collier Paving/A&A Auto Stores roadrunner division when they too tied in the final points race of the year. Bissinger clinched his fifth career title without a victory this season, while Brunson scored his first championship along with his first career win in his rookie season.

Michael Thomas of Emmaus clinched the 358 sprint car challenge series title.

Rookie of the Year awards went to Justin Whittall of Southampton Lane, N.J. (sprint cars); Nathan Long of Middleburg (late models); Shaun Lawton of Bloomsburg (pro stocks); and Will Brunson of Middleburg (roadrunners). Jim Collier of Shamokin received the Joe Whitcomb Memorial Sportsman of the Year award.

This year’s dual point championship ties marked only the fourth and fifth times for ties in Selinsgrove Speedway history. The last points championship tie at the track occurred in 2000 between 410 sprint car drivers Todd Shaffer and Keith Kauffman. The sprint car division also had a championship tie in 1964 between Dick Tobias and Leroy Felty. The late model division's only other title tie was in 1980 between Dale Kerstetter and Bob Smith.

On hand to accept a special recognition award in appreciation for his dedication to the future of auto racing at Selinsgrove Speedway was Gary Greiner, member of the Selinsgrove Fair Association.

The 2017 Selinsgrove Raceway Park go kart champions were Wyatt Tressler (kid karts), Dalton Bachman (rookies I cage), Ashton Gonder (rookies II cage), Brooklynn Peters (rookies I), Pat Romig (adult cage animal), Chase Keister (jr. cage), Trevor Teats (clone 375s), Kruz Kepner (jr. restricted), Brandon Haines (adult cage flat), Steve Kerstetter (mediums), Dennis Tanner (extra heavies), and Adam Barge (flat 350s), Mariah Romig (senior clone cage), Todd Benny (clone 340s), and Kaiden Goshorn (red clone cage).

Members of the speedway management team announced all the divisions will be returning for weekly Friday night go kart racing at Selinsgrove Raceway Park and weekly Saturday night sprint car and stock car competition at Selinsgrove Speedway next season.

Off-season improvements include moving the pit area outside of the half-mile track and adding screened clay to the turns.

LANCE DEWEASE WINS SPRINT SHOWDOWN AT SUSQUEHANNA

Chase Dietz Gets Second 358 Sprint Win By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA…10/28/17

Lance Dewease survived some mid-race drama with Logan Schuchart before capturing the big $5,000 payday in Saturday’s 30-lap BAPS Auto Paints and Supplies 410 Sprint Showdown at Susquehanna Speedway.

The event closed the curtain on the 2017 racing season at Susquehanna and in Central Pennsylvania.

Chase Dietz dominated the 25-lap 358 Sprint car feature for his second win of the season.

After setting quick time and winning the Dash, World of Outlaws regular Logan Schuchart took control of the 410 Sprint car feature as Joey Saldana settled into the runner-up spot.

As Schuchart set the pace, a lap four incident brought out a yellow flag when contact was made between Danny Dietrich and Greg Hodnett that also collected Freddie Rahmer and Cory Haas. Heavy damage to Hodnett’s car sidelined him for the day as was Dietrich and Rahmer.

On the restart, Anthony Fiore brought out a red flag after flipping.

Saldana got high on the restart allowing Lucas Wolfe and Dewease by as Dewease began his charge to the front after starting sixth.

Dewease made the race winning pass on Schuchart with 14 laps complete but action got heated when Schuchart attempted to get back around Dewease but ran over the front end causing front wing damage to the Kreitz Racing 69K machine. After some dramatics while the field was under caution, Schuchart pitted with a flat tire and rejoined the rear of the field.

Despite the damage, Dewease was able to keep Saldana at bay for the remainder of the event to score his 19th career Susquehanna win, 13th overall this season and second of the year at the York Haven oval.

Saldana finished second ahead of Wolfe, ninth starting Brock Zearfoss and 10th starting Brian Montieth with Mark Smith earning the Hard Charger coming from 18th to sixth ahead of Anthony Macri, Haas from the rear of the field, Brandon Rahmer and Schuchart.

Schuchart set fast time over the 30 car field with a lap of 15.655 seconds while heat races were won by Dewease, Ryan Smith and Dietrich. Brett Michalski won the consolation.

Dave Brown, Jr. led the first two laps of the 358 Sprint car main before Dietz took control and never looked back.

A late race red for a flip by Jake Eldreth would close the field on the Spring Grove racer but he was not to be denied the win as he took the checkered flag.

Brent Shearer raced by Kevin Nouse on the final turn to steal the runner-up finish with Nouse, who started 12th settling for third over Chris Frank and 10th starter Brett Wanner with Cody Fletcher earning the Hard Charger after starting 20th, Tyler Ross, Mike Bittinger, Troy Wagaman, Jr. and Brown completing the top ten.

Nouse, Wanner and Eldreth won heats for the 31 car field. CJ Tracy was the consolation race winner.

Zearfoss, Hodnett And Bishop Close Port Royal Season With Wins

10/21/17

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – With over 80 sprint cars in the pit area, Port Royal Speedway capped off the highly successful 2017 season on Saturday night with Brock Zearfoss, Greg Hodnett and Austin Bishop claiming the 410 sprint, URC sprint and 305 sprint mains, respectively.

In the 25-lap 410 sprint main, polesitter Dylan Cisney beat Brock Zearfoss into the first turn only to see Zearfoss take the lead as the pair shot onto the backchute.

The reigning 2017 track champion, Zearfoss of Jonestown set a blistering pace around the oval during the early going, entering the backmarkers on the seventh tour with Cisney and fourth starter Danny Dietrich in tow.

At the halfway point, Zearfoss had a 1.1 second lead over Cisney as the race for second heated up between Cisney and Dietrich.

After repeated attempts, Dietrich was able to secure second spot and complete lap 18 just before the only caution flag of the race unfurled for a stopped Kody Lehman.

Dietrich followed Zearfoss high into the first corner when action resumed and then made his swooping attempt for the lead as the pair shot into the third turn.

However the Gettysburg driver came up short of completing his slide job attempt in the fourth turn and instead settled into second, where he would finish.

The $4,000 victory was the fifth of the season at the Port Royal oval for Zearfoss who took the checkers by a 1.926 second advantage.

Anthony Macri of Dillsburg rode home a fine third followed by Cisney and Jason Shultz.

Sixth through 10th went to 18th starter Greg Hodnett, Lucas Wolfe, Steve Buckwalter, Davey Sammons and Cory Haas.

Heats went to Macri, Zearfoss, Justin Barger and Shultz in what was two rounds of heats for each of two heat groups.

Lucas Wolfe led the first lap of the 25-lap URC sprint main before fourth starter Chad Layton took over and entered lapped traffic on the sixth tour.

Greg Hodnett started seventh in the field and bolted to the front of the race with lightning speed during the early going, up to third with five laps recorded.

As Layton worked through traffic, Hodnett rapidly closed the gap on the two leaders before pulling off a high-flying two-car pass of both Wolfe and Layton for position plus at least one backmarker in the third and fourth turns of the ninth lap.

And once at the front, Hodnett drove off from the field only to be slowed by the caution flag with nine laps to go.

Wolfe got a clean shot on the restart only to see Hodnett drive off before another yellow with six laps to go again bunched the field.

Another restart produced the same result with Hodnett staying out front only this time 10th starter Brock Zearfoss motored by Wolfe into second before trying to run down the pacesetter.

Zearfoss did his best to close the gap but came up short at the finish by .537 seconds.

Wolfe was third followed by Curt Michael and Mark Smith.

Sixth through 10th went to Jason Shultz, Justin Barger, 21st starter Chuck Hebing, Layton and Josh Weller.

Heats went to Wolfe, Hodnett, Chris Coyle and Barger with Hebing scoring the consolation race.

With the win, Hodnett scored $2,000 and also swept both URC events held at Port Royal in 2017.

Austin Bishop of Elverson wired the 20-lap 305 sprint main with a flag to flag performance.

The only caution of the race took place with just one lap to go and it produced a wild final lap and a four-car race for the win back to the line.

Jeff Miller restarted second with Nate Gramley and 12th starter Kyle Smith following and Miller went for the lead when action resumed.

But Bishop moved down to block his advance on the backstretch and Miller climbed his tail tank before jerking sideways toward the inside fence and then somehow saving the car.

This bottled up Gramley and allowed Smith to motor by both he and Miller during the final half lap.

Miller crossed the line in third followed by Gramley and Cale Riegle.

Sixth through 10th went to Dylan Shatzer, Nick Sweigart, Kassidy Kreitz, Scott Lutz and Drew Ritchey.

Heats went to Miller, Shatzer and Smith with the consolation race going to Brad Mellott.

KYLE SMITH RECORDS FIRST SUSQUEHANNA 305 SPRINT WIN
Zechman, Beard, Powell and Carroll All Score First Wins of Season
By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA…10/14/17
It’s been a good two weeks in Central Pennsylvania for South Egremont, Massachusetts racer Kyle Smith.

The young driver dominated Saturday night’s 20-lap Freedmont® Mortgage Lending PASS/IMCA Sprint car feature at Susquehanna Speedway as he visited victory lane for the first time ever at the York Haven oval. Smith’s Susky win backs up his big win a week earlier in IMCA Sprint action at nearby Port Royal.

Four first time season winners also emerged Saturday night as Bobby Beard won the Bernheisel Race Cars 358 Late Models, Randy Zechman took the win in the Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stocks, Bill Powell won the Superior Homes Extreme Stocks and Robbie Carroll got the win in the Road Warriors.

Starting on the pole aboard his No. 17NY Sprint, Smith dominated the event that saw him pull away to a 2.765 margin of victory. Two early race cautions was all that kept the field close as Smith became the eighth different winner in the nine 305 Sprint car mains in 2017.

Darren Miller chased Smith the entire distance and settled for second over Dave Grube, Ken Duke, Jr. and Billy Ney with Jaremi Hanson, 2017 Susquehanna track champion Zach Newlin, Rick Stief, Colby Dice and Stephanie Dodson completing the top ten finishers.

Kyle Ganoe, Andrew Hake and Miller were heat winners for the 25 cars.

Donnie Hendershot was the Artwerks Hard Charger coming from 18th to 12th.

Brian Shuey led the first 11 laps of the 20-lap BRC 358 Late Model main when sixth-starting Bobby Beard took control.

Once out front, it was all Beard as he pulled away from the field to post his first win of the year by 2.968 seconds. He became the 11th different winner this season in late model action.

Shuey, Eric Hohol, 2017 track champion Randy Christine, Jr and Sean Merkel finished in the top five trailed by Steve Billet, Tim Murphy, Dan Zechman, Steve Todorow and Taylor Farlling. Murphy was Artwerks Hard Charger.

Hohol and Beard were heat winners for the 15-car field.

It was all Randy Zechman in the 20-lap Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Poos Street Stock feature after taking the lead with nine laps complete.

Mike Buckley led lap one before Kyle Saylor took the lead and held that point until fifth starting Zechman took over.

Zechman drove away taking checkered flag by 4.202 seconds for his first win of the year and 12th different division winner.

Jim Palm came from eighth to finish second ahead of Saylor, Mike Potts and Kevin Sigler with Jimmy Combs, Brad Bingaman, Elvin Brennan, Howard Williams and Matt Wampler completing the top ten.

With his 11th place finish, division sponsor Craig Morgan captured the 2017 Street Stock track championship.

Heats for the 19 cars were won by Buckley and Zechman.

Bill Powell emerged with his first career Susquehanna win and 100th career overall win as he was in the right place at the right time in the Superior Homes Extreme Stock feature.

Racing third as the white flag flew, Powell had a front row seat when 2017 track champion Alex Updegraff got into Kyle Emig, who led laps 2 through 19 and spun him. The two raced side by side for half of the race but the contact put both to the back as Powell held on for the win on the final lap over Patrick McClane, Travis Horan, 13th starting and Artwerks Hard Charger John Frye and Jeff Gill were the top five.

Johnny Palm and Emig won heats for the 19 Extreme Stocks.

Robbie Carroll led all 15 laps to win the Road Warrior feature over Travis Brown, Kyle Rohrbaugh, Ryan Underkoffler and Justin Dashler.

The highly anticipated, much talked about sprint car hat trick program is sure to be an October smash to close out the Port Royal Speedway season.

The 410 sprints will race for $4,000 to win on Saturday in the season finale while the URC sprints compete for $2,000 to win and the 305 sprints vie for a $500 to win payday.

Gates for the big sprint car program will open at 1:30 pm with engine starts tentatively slated for 4 pm.

Schatz Tames Port Royal For 19th Outlaws Win Of Season, Second Career At Oval

10/14/17

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Eight-time World of Outlaws champion Donny Schatz of Fargo, Nd., tamed Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night, scoring his second career oval victory, worth $10,000 after holding off Lance Dewease to the finish.

In the 25-lap Mid Atlantic Modified main it was Mike Altobelli scoring the $1,000 victory.

Reigning 2017 track champion Brock Zearfoss started on the pole of the 30-lap World of Outlaws main for sprint cars flanked by Jason Sides with Schatz starting in third and Dewease starting in ninth spot.

Zearfoss of Jonestown took the lead at the start over Sides however Schatz motored into second on the third lap as Zearfoss held a 1.669 second lead.

Alone out front, Zearfoss was setting a blistering pace and entered the rear of the field on the seventh tour with Schatz in tow and Dewease up to fourth.

Zearfoss worked his way through traffic in fine fashion over the next seven laps and was keeping Schatz at bay, still holding a one second lead when the races first caution flag unfurled on the 14th tour for a stopped Logan Schuchart.

Zearfoss chose the inside lane for the double file restart with Schatz in second and Dewease restarting third with Brad Sweet in fourth.

And Zearfoss turned in a great restart when action resumed, outracing Schatz into the first corner and turning back a slide job attempt by Schatz for the lead.

However racing close with Schatz, nose to tail at times, proved hard to handle for Zearfoss as the pair raced into the second half of the race and on the 18th tour when Zearfoss entered in the middle in the first turn, leaving the top lane open, that was all Schatz needed to blast into control.

Moments after taking the lead, on the 19th lap, the second caution flag of the race appeared regrouping the pack, this time finding Schatz choosing the inside pin for the restart.

Dewease blasted into second on the restart, coming up .67 seconds behind Schatz at the line with 10 to go but was then outdistanced by Schatz during the waning laps before a final yellow flag set up a dramatic finish.

When green reappeared, Schatz went high into the first turn and Dewease blasted in low, going out in front briefly as he let the car slide up across the track to get command.

However Schatz would later credit Dewease with allowing just enough room for him to jet back by as the pair shot out of the second turn and that sealed the deal for Schatz, who went on to pick up his 19th overall checkers of the season by .792 seconds ahead of Dewease.

After starting 10th, Daryn Pittman finished on the podium in third followed by Sweet and Johnson.

Sixth through 10th went to Dave Blaney, Danny Dietrich, Sheldon Haudenschild, Jac Haudenschild and David Gravel.

Heats for the 40-car field went to Jason Johnson, Sheldon Haudenschild, Sweet and Schatz with Tony Stewart claiming the B Main and Zearfoss winning the dash.

Overall fast time in qualifications was set by Jason Johnson with a lap time of 15.704 seconds, an average speed of 114.162 mph.

Rick Hulson led the first six laps of the Mid Atlantic Modified main before Mike Altobelli took over to speed to the victory.

Hulson would finish second with Dan Davies ending up third.

By finishing fourth in the main, Brad Kling secured the 2017 Mid Atlantic Modified series title.

Heats for the mods went to Mike Corbin and Altobelli.

World Of Outlaws Sprints Invade Port Royal Speedway Saturday

Juniata County Duel At Port Royal To Close 2017 PA Posse Vs. Outlaws Rivalry

10/8/17

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Port Royal Speedway will present the World of Outlaws Craftsman sprint car series coming up this Saturday, October 14 at 5 pm.

The World of Outlaws sprint cars and stars will race in a 30-lap main paying $10,000 to win.

The show will be the final appearance of the outlaws travelers in the Keystone State, pitting the locals known as the PA Posse against the World of Outlaws stars.

The Mid Atlantic Modifieds are also on the program, competing in a 25-lap, $1,000 to win feature event.

Gates for Saturday’s World of Outlaws program open at 2 pm.

One year ago in World of Outlaws sprint car action at Port Royal Speedway, Pennsylvania outlaws driver Logan Schuchart took the lead on a lap two restart from Lucas Wolfe to pocket the $10,000 loot in front of his home state fans.

Greg Hodnett was second with Donny Schatz finishing third last year.

Lance Dewease has been the hottest driver of the year at Port Royal along with track champion Brock Zearfoss.

Dewease has invaded and won the biggest shows of the season at the track including the recently contested, prestigious $50,000 to win 50th Annual Tuscarora 50.

Dewease has taken six wins alone at Port Royal this year while track titlist Brock Zearfoss took four including a sweep of the month of August.

Zearfoss beat the outlaws at Williams Grove Speedway in July.

Connecticut’s David Gravel, who has been the winningest driver on the circuit of late, will lead the outlaws into Port Royal on Saturday.

On October 7, Gravel pocketed his 17th circuit win of the year for the CJB Motorsports No. 5 team.

Gravel recently took two of three events in the Williams Grove Speedway National Open including the 50K to win finale.

Of course perennial World of Outlaws series champion Donny Schatz is right up there this year, currently leading series points with 18 wins over Brad Sweet and Gravel, who is third in points.

Sweet was a Port Royal WoO victor in 2015.

Reserved seats for this year’s show are available for the price of $35, regardless of age, (which includes the price of general admission) in the following aluminum grandstand sections and rows:

Sections A – G, Rows 6 – 19

Freddie Rahmer And Kevin Nouse Earn Williams Grove Speedway Sprint Titles

10/8/17

Mechanicsburg – Williams Grove Speedway closed its 2017 racing season on October 6 having crowned its season champions in both the Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint car division and the HJ Towing & Recovery 358 sprint car division.

At the age of 21, young Freddie Rahmer of Salfordville became the youngest driver to claim a Williams Grove Speedway track title since Bobby Davis Jr. accomplished the feat at age 20 back in 1983 while driving for Bob Weikert.

It was Rahmer’s first ever title at the oval.

A three-time winner at the track in 2017, Freddie Rahmer now joins his father and car owner, Fred Rahmer on the prestigious Williams Grove Speedway all time championship win list.

The elder Rahmer earned nine career oval track titles as a pilot himself and now owns a total of 10 including his first as a car owner in 2017.

Rahmer and Dave Pritchard will share car owner laurels for 2017.

Freddie Rahmer also earned the 2017 Williams Grove Diamond Series title at the track, earning the most points in the oval series comprised of some of the most special events the track offers during the year.

His father was a two-time Diamond Series champion during his career.

In the 358 sprint division, Mechanicsburg’s Kevin Nouse recently wrapped up the 2017 track title.

The title was the fourth of Nouses’s career at the track after also taking titles in 2013, 2014 and in 2016.

The 2017 title puts Knouse in pretty elite company as only one other driver has won more Williams Grove titles with Pat Cannon having earned a total of five 358 sprint crowns.

Like Nouse, Cory Haas earned four during his tenure in the limited sprints.

Nouse took one oval victory in 2017.

Special awards in the 358 sprints went to Troy Wagaman Jr. as Most Improved Driver, Brie Hershey for Sportsmanship and Brett Wanner as Rookie of the Year.

In the 410 sprint ranks, special awards went to Anthony Macri as Rookie of the Year, Troy Fraker for Sportsmanship, Matt Campbell as Most Improved and Mechanic of the Year went to Freddie Rahmer for wrenching his own mount to the 2017 track title.

The 2018 season opener at Williams Grove Speedway has been determined to be a 410 sprints only program, taking place on a Sunday afternoon in March.

KENNY EDKIN DOMINATES FINAL SUPER SPORTSMAN RACE OF SEASON Potts, Dove and Montgomery All Get Second Susky Wins By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA…10/7/17 Kenny Edkin put an exclamation point on his breakout season by dominating Saturday night’s 40-lap Fall Harvest King of the Hill presented by Hessiron.com Super Sportsman feature at Susquehanna Speedway.

Edkin’s division leading sixth win of the season came in the season finale for the Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman

Other winners on the warm October race night included Charles Potts in the Bernheisel Race Cars 358 Late Models, Lucas Montgomery in the ServiceMaster Clean Central PA Legends and Steve Dove in the Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stocks. Dove was rewarded the street stock win after actual winner Randy Zechman was disqualified after failing post race inspection.

Veteran Rich Eichelberger set the pace for the first three laps of the Harvest Classic before slowing on the speedway to bring out the first of eight caution flags during the main event.

This turned the lead over to 2017 track champion Scott Dellinger who would hold the point until the 10th lap when eighth starting Edkin drove by to take the top spot.

Edkin, of Marysville, pulled away from Dellinger but was kept at bay with all of the yellows but each time, Edkin showed strength by extending his lead.

The final caution of the race flew on lap 32 as Edkin pulled away to a 2.320 second advantage at the checkered flag aboard his family owned No. 75.

Dellinger crossed second ahead of Sportsman 100 winner Frankie Herr, Chad Criswell and 11th starting Gregg Foster with Steve Fannasy, Chase Gutshall, Mike Enders, Garrett Williamson and Justin Foster completing the top ten.

Enders set fast time over the 27 car field in time trials with a lap of 18.656 while heats were won by Dellinger, Edkin and Fannasy. Justin Foster earned the Hard Charger after starting 17th.

Eric Hohol led the first two laps of the 20-lap BRC 358 Late Model feature before spinning out.

Charles Potts took command after starting second and would hold the lead but it was Dan Zechman who came on strong during the final laps to make this one a thriller as Potts raced around the inside of the track while Zechman pounded the top looking for the lead.

But Potts would prevail by a scant 0.169 of a second for his second win of the year over Zechman. Track point leader Randy Christine, Jr. crossed a distant third over Bryan Bernheisel, Brian Shuey, JR Rodriguez, Jake Moser, Steve Billet, Sean Merkel and Jed Latshaw, the race’s Hard Charger after lining up 20th.

Christine, Zechman and Shuey won heats for the 21 car field.

Randy Zechman dominated the caution-marred 20 lap Street stock main and crossed first but after failing post race inspection, Steve Dove was rewarded with his second feature win of the year.

Defending track champion Mike Potts was second over ninth starting Jimmy Combs, 12th starting Joey Hoffer and 15th starting and Hard Charger Kyle Saylor competing the top five. Rounding out the top 10 were Brandon Wanner, Kevin Sigler, Matt Adams, Brad Bingaman and Scott Thunberg.

Heats for the 21 street stocks were won by Mike Buckley and Zechman.

Ninth-starting Lucas Montgomery came away with the win in the thrilling 20-lap ServiceMaster Clean Central PA Legends feature.

Harlon Leppo led the first 13 laps before Montgomery took the lead as he then had to fend off late race challenges from Haydon Pascoe before taking the win, 0.214 seconds ahead of Pascoe with Leppo crossing just 0.428 seconds back in third. Fourth went to Scott Houdeshell over 12th starting Mason Chaney.

Susquehanna Speedway returns to action Saturday night, October 14 with final appearance of the season for the Freedmont® Mortgage Lending PASS/IMCA Sprints and the Bernheisel Race Cars 358 Late Models. Joining these two divisions will be the Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stocks, Superior Homes Extreme Stocks and the Road Warriors. Racee time is 6PM.

Kyle Smith Comes From Massachusetts For Port Royal 305 Blue Collar Classic Win

Stock cars go to Weaver, Renninger and Chronister

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

10/7/17

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Kyle Smith of South Egremont, Massachusetts, scored the big victory in the sixth annual Port Royal Speedway Blue Collar Classic for the IMCA Keystone RaceSaver 305 sprint cars on Saturday night.

Smith surged during the final five laps to drive down leader Tyler Reeser and swoop past for the $1,350 win in the final two turns of the 25-lap feature event.

The 20-lap Mason Dixon Shootout limited late model main was taken by Justin Weaver after Weaver also made a late race pass for the victory.

The make-up Butch Renninger Memorial for xtreme stocks went to local driver Herm Renninger after he led 17 laps of the main and the four cylinder main was scored by Matt Chronister.

Nearly 140 cars filled the pits for action in the big October event.

Polesitter Nick Sweigart led only the first lap of the Blue Collar Classic for the 305 sprint cars before Tyler Reeser took over.

In a race for the track title, Reeser tried pulling away after he got to the front while point leader Jeff Miller battled into third spot behind Darren Miller.

Reeser hit the halfway point of the race with a .7 second lead over Darren Miller and Jeff Miller and then just as Jeff Miller put a move on for second with 10 laps to go, he lost control and spun the car in the fourth corner, ending his title hopes.

The restart saw 12th starter Kyle Smith taking the green from fourth spot and Smith raced up to third when action resumed.

With five laps to go, Reeser still had a .898 second lead over Darren Miller however Smith was clearly getting faster during the final stages, using great runs off of the cushion on the second corner to gain ground.

He took second with three laps to go and then ran down the leader to duck to his inside in the third and fourth turns as the leaders headed toward the finish line.

Smith was able to come out of turn four as the leader with Reeser glued to his tail back to the checkers.

Smith’s margin of victory was a scant .080 seconds.

Reeser ended up second and recorded the 2017 Creasy Signs Port Royal 305 Sprint Series track title.

Darren Miller was third followed by Nick Sweigart and Ken Duke Jr.

Sixth through 10th went to Zach Newlin, Jeff Geiges, Drew Ritchey, Scott Lutz and Jeff Miller.

Heats for the 57-car field went to Reeser, Dylan Schatzer, Darren Miller, Kyle Smith, Sydney Prince and Jeff Miller.

Twin consolations went to Austin Bishop and Greg Dobrosky with Tim Tanner Jr. setting fast time with a lap of 18.307 seconds.

Kyle Ganoe led all 15 laps of the Founders Cup non-qualifiers race for the 305 sprints to earn a guaranteed starting spot in the 2018 Blue Collar Classic main.

James Lichliter led the first 16 laps of the limited late model main over fourth starter Justin Weaver.

But Weaver’s bottom groove came in as the race wore into the late stages and with three laps to go, Weaver drove into control for the $1,000 victory.

Lichliter rode home second followed by George Dixon, Derrick Garman and Jim Yoder.

Heats went to Lichliter, Garman, Dillan Stake and Dixon. Andrew Stotler took the consolation race.

Herm Renninger took control from Bob Bussey on the third lap to speed to the Renninger Memorial xtreme stock main.

Bill Powell raced into second on a lap four restart and ended up finishing second and scoring the 2017 Juniata Junction xtreme stock track title.

Kevin Imes rode home third followed by Mike Goodwin and Ryan Zook.

Heats went to Renninger, Josh Bender and Imes.

Polesitter Matt Chronister wired the field for the four cylinder feature win.

Chronister was challenged by Chris Anderson for the win but Anderson would finish second followed by Noah Swank, Tim Campbell and Tim Raup.

Twin heats went to Chris Anderson and Justin Williamson.

Feature finishes to follow Sunday.

J.J. GRASSO WINS LINCOLN SPEEDWAY 2017 SEASON FINALE;

Chase Dietz Wins 358 Sprint Finale, Adrian Shaffer Locks up 2017 358 Sprint Track Title

Travis McClelland Closes Out 2017 Season with All American Outlaw Win

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 10/7/2017 – JJ Grasso of Middletown, DE, drove his family-owned No.37 sprinter flawlessly through lapped traffic and held off 7-time 2017 winner Danny Dietrich and 2017 track champ Brian Montieth to pick up the win in the 30-lap $4,000-to-win 410 sprint season finale.

York’s Chase Dietz picked up the win in the 358 Sprint finale, while York’s Adrian Shaffer secured the 2017 track title with his fourth-place finish. Travis McClelland symbolically closed out the 2017 racing season at Lincoln Speedway with the win in the 20-lap All American Outlaw feature at the end of the night.

The 2017 finale was also a celebration of the lives of two special people involved in racing at the historic Pigeon Hills oval. Promotor and car-owner Bob Leiby was honored with the first annual memorial race in his honor after being rained out on September 2nd. This was coupled with the 29th running of the traditional Manufacturers Appreciation Night in honor of Hank Gentzler. 10’s of thousands of dollars in manufacturers goods were awarded in individual prize packages to the 410 sprint drivers starting the feature event. All this was made possible by the efforts of Pancho’s Racing Products.

Grasso, who started outside the front row, hooked onto the bumper of polesitter Eric Tomecek at the drop of the green and followed the Abbottstown racer into lapped traffic with Dietrich, Montieth, and Lucas Wolfe right behind through 10 laps.

At the beginning of lap 11, Grasso dove inside the leader entering turn 1 and slid up trying to secure the lead. Tomecek tried to hang onto the cushion and his lead, but slipped up off the cushion and into the outer wall, rolling his sprinter onto it’s side.

Grasso now had the lead. But right behind were Dietrich, Montieth, Wolfe and Greg Hodnett with 20 laps remaining. A daunting task for any driver.

Grasso went to work on the restart and used the clear track to his advantage, building a slight advantage as they entered lapped traffic once again on lap 17.

Both Dietrich and Montieth closed to gap on the leader and with 10 laps remaining the race was on through lapped traffic.

Then with five laps remaining Cole Young crashed on the frontstretch, bringing race’s final caution and set up a five-lap race to the checkered.

On the restart Grasso got up to speed flawlessly and never wavered as he took the checkered five laps later for the win over Dietrich, Montieth, Wolfe and Hodnett.

Completing the top-10 were 19th-starting Freddie Rahmer, Anthony Macri, 12th-starting Alan Krimes, 16th-starting Cory Haas, and 13th-starting Brandon Rahmer.

Heats for the 25 410 Sprinters were won by Matt Campbell, Hodnett, and Macri, with Freddie Rahmer winning the consolation.

8th-starting Chase Dietz passed race long leader Steve Drevicki on the sixth lap and raced away to his first 358 sprint win of the year at Lincoln in the finale.

Two cautions, both involving spin-outs by Brie Hershey on the eighth and 14th laps, allowed Drevicki to remain close to the leader throughout.

But Dietz was clearly the class of the field this night and easily took the checkered 1.93-seconds ahead of Drevicki for the win.

Cody Fletcher came out on top of a race-long battle with Adrian Shaffer for the third spot. Even though Shaffer had to settle for a fourth-place finish, it was enough to clinch the 2017 358 Sprint track title for the York racer.

12th-starting Brent Shearer completed the top-five.

Rounding out the top-10 were 13th-starting Troy Wagaman, Jr., 17th-starting Matt Findley, 18th-starting Tyler Ross, 20th-starting Chris Frank, and polesitter Jon Stewart.

Dietrich Swaps Lead With Campbell Seven Times In Final Laps To Close Grove Season With Sprints Win

10/6/17

Mechanicsburg – Danny Dietrich came out on top of a furious battle with Matt Campbell during the last few laps to pick up the victory in Friday night’s season ending sprint car main at Williams Grove Speedway.

And in the super late model main Bryan Bernheisel took the win over his father Jim Bernheisel to close out the season’s competition.

Trying to pick up his second win in under a month, Matt Campbell started on the pole of the 25-lap 410 sprint main and blasted into the lead over Dietrich when action began.

Campbell entered the rear of the field on just the fifth tour with Dietrich in tow however the Fawn Grove driver performed flawlessly in traffic to keep Dietrich at bay despite some intense battles as he worked through the back of the pack.

At the halfway point, Campbell was doing everything right to keep his lead over Dietrich with nearly a one second advantage.

With 10 laps to go, Campbell was still flawless, working both sides of the speedway as Dietrich and Brock Zearfoss kept pace although not able to make any bids for the win.

But with three laps to go, the races only caution flag unfurled, clearing the way for Campbell but also placing the second and third place cars directly on his tail.

And when action resumed for the final three laps, Dietrich went to work wrestling with Campbell for the win and during the final mile and a half, the pair swapped the lead no less than seven times as they see-sawed back and forth in every corner.

Campbell had a car that worked perfectly on both sides fo the track and if Dietirch went for the slider, Campbell simply backed off, turned the car and jetted back into the lead after dropping off of the cushion.

But Dietrich finally got the better of Campbell in the final turns, having beaten him into the third corner for the victory, which was his third of the year at the track.

Campbell then slipped just a bit in the final corner, allowing a close following Zearfoss to get by for second.

Dietrich’s margin of victory was .547 seconds over Zearfoss.

Fourth went to Greg Hodnett and fifth went to Lucas Wolfe.

Sixth through 10th went to Daryn Pittman, Freddie Rahmer, Chad Trout, Kody Lehman and Anthony Macri.

Heats went to Zearfoss, Tim Wagaman and Trout.

Bryan Bernheisel led ever lap of the 25-lap super late model main.

His pace was hampered by numerous caution flags including on the initial start and on laps seven, 10, 16 and 22.

But each time the field restarted the younger Bernheisel was able to pull away from the rest of the field.

Coleby Frye took second from Jim Bernheisel on the lap seven restart but Frye then withdrew from the race with 10 laps completed.

Third went to Gene Knaub followed by Tyler Horst and Matt Nailor.

Heats went to Frye and Jim Bernheisel.

The win was the second of Bryan Bernheisel’s career at the Williams Grove oval.

DAVID GRAVEL EARNS $50,000 FOR WIN IN 55TH ANNUAL CHAMPION RACING OIL NATIONAL OPEN AT WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY

MECHANICSBURG, PA – David Gravel took the lead from Donny Schatz and then took the lead back from James McFadden to win the 55th Annual Champion Racing Oil National Open Saturday night at Williams Grove Speedway.

Gravel’s second win in the National Open was worth $50,000 and was his second win of the weekend in a car owned by Pennsylvania’s Chad and Jenn Clemens. He also won the National Open in 2014.

“It’s crazy,” said Gravel, of Watertown, Conn. “I knew the track was going to end up doing that taking rubber and cleaning up around the bottom. I made a mistake on the restart and gave McFadden the bottom and was able to rail the top in three and four and get him back. I was really lucky that happened because if it didn’t I probably wouldn’t have won the race. I made a mistake, I was able to recover and able to hold on. There’s some cords showing from the tires. I didn’t want that last caution even though I was behind the lapped cars. I knew if I didn’t mess up it wouldn’t be an issue. I was worried about weight and blowing a tire. I’m happy to get another one here and solidify myself here. Three wins at the Grove in one year is pretty awesome.”

Schatz started second and drove into the race lead over polesitter Gravel and sixth starter McFadden on the opening lap.

Schatz built a quick one-second lead, but Gravel began to close passing Schatz with an inside move off turn four completing lap six as the leader.

Gravel reached slower traffic with a 1.359-second lead as McFadden challenged Schatz. Gravel was stuck behind Jac Haudenschild allowing Schatz and McFadden to close.

Schatz passed Gravel off turn two retaking the lead on lap 11, but Gravel took it back and passed Haudenschild and another car to give himself a two-car cushion.

McFadden passed Schatz in turn two taking over the second spot on lap 17.

Brian Montieth’s slower sprinter in turn two brought the field under caution with 18 laps completed. Gravel took the outside position for the double-file restart.

McFadden drove under him in turn two taking the lead. They were close at the line the next time by with McFadden leading.

Gravel took the lead back in turn four and they were nose-to-tail at the line completing lap 20.

Shane Stewart stopped in turn three on lap 21. Gravel went to the top again and maintained the lead as Schatz passed McFadden back for second.

By lap 26, the racing had shifted to the inside lane around the speedway. A crash off turn two brought out the red flag with 12 laps to go. Stewart was a flip victim. Brad Sweet, Kraig Kinser and Jason Johnson were also involved. Crews were allowed to refuel under an open red.

Gravel picked the inside for this restart, but the red flag came out again when Kinser flipped in turn one and Sweet was also involved again.

The restart was single-file this time.

Gravel controlled the pace as Logan Schuchart was the only driver trying the top in turn four. Schatz began to close with a few laps left and was on Gravel’s bumper in turns one and two and looked like he was about to try a move when the caution flew as Brian Brown slowed on the backstretch with two laps left.

Gravel didn’t make a mistake over the final laps and won by .683. Schatz, McFadden, 20th starter Schuchart and Pittman completed the top five. Ninth starter Greg Hodnett, Kerry Madsen, 11th starter Sheldon Haudenschild, 16th starter Brock Zearfoss and Jason Sides rounded out the top 10.

The mechanics of the top three finishers – Barry Jackson, Ricky Warner and Matt Highlands – all graduated from Big Spring High School in nearby Newville.

The top four drivers in total points from Thursday and Friday were locked into Saturday’s dash and included Schatz, Gravel, McFadden and Daryn Pittman. The heat races were lined up straight-up by points with Stewart, Kerry Madsen, Lucas Wolfe and Greg Hodnett winning those. Gravel won the dash and Sweet the Last Chance Showdown after a mechanical problem in his heat race.

McFadden Upends Field For First Outlaws & Williams Grove Win In Open Round 2

9/29/17

Mechanicsburg – Australian champion James McFadden won his first ever World of Outlaws sprint car feature on Friday night while also scoring his first ever win at Williams Grove Speedway, scoring $10,000 for the victory in night two of the 2017 Champion Racing Oil National Open.

Aboard the Highlands No. 3, McFadden earned the pole for the 25-lap main event by winning the dash.

The initial start of the feature saw Greg Hodnett take the lead from McFadden as the pair raced out of the fourth corner to complete lap one before a light rain shower hit the track, halting action.

A complete restart with no laps completed was ordered after a 20-minute delay.

And this time McFadden took a solid lead over Hodnett and he was trying to open up substantial distance when the red flag unfurled with just three laps recorded for a four car accident in the third turn.

The cars of Danny Dietrich, Trey Starks and Brian Montieth connected and saw Jac Haudenschild blast into the pile, getting the worst of the damage.

Haudenschild was escorted back to the pit area by ambulance.

The rest of the 22 laps would go non-stop with McFadden driving out to a near two second lead by lap 10 and he entered the backmarkers on lap 11.

But even lapped traffic didn’t allow Hodnett to close in as McFadden was still 1.85 seconds ahead with 10 laps to go.

However as traffic got heavier and the race went longer, Hodnett began to encroach and with four laps to go the leader’s advantage was down to .89 seconds, which put the front duo nearly nose to tail with Donny Schatz lurking in third.

With three laps to go McFadden had just .60 seconds between himself and Hodnett and that’s when he came up on the backmarkers of Alan Krimes and Brian Brown and Alan Krimes battling for position.

And when McFadden misjudged Brown’s entry into the first corner, the result saw him hard on the binders with all four wheels seemingly pointed every direction but straight as he tried to avoid catastrophy as he set the car into the corner.

This put Hodnett and Schatz in prime position to drive by but somehow McFadden emerged from turn two still the leader with second and third breathing down his neck.

And the lack of breathing room got even less on the final lap as .34 seconds was the advantage as the white flag waved.

Hodnett made a last turns move to steal the win as the pair headed through the fourth corner, dipping to McFadden’s inside as the pair swooped around the cushion but McFadden was able to beat Hodnett back to the stripe by just .24 seconds for the prestigious victory.

Schatz rode home a challenging third followed by Brad Sweet and Shane Stewart.

Sixth through 10th went to Jason Johnson, Ian Madsen, Lucas Wolfe, Kerry Madsen and David Gravel.

Heats for the 46-car field went to Johnson, McFadden, Wolfe and Hodnett with Cory Haas taking the C Main and Lance Dewease taking the B Main.

Dewease dropped out of second place in the second heat with motor ills but then climbed to 11th in the main event.

Overall fast time was set by Jason Sides with a lap of 16.976 seconds.

Freddie Rahmer finished 27th in the feature and needs only to take a green flag in Saturday night’s National Open itself to clinch the 2017 Williams Grove Speedway track title.

The top four in National Open points heading into the final night of competition on Saturday that are locked into the Open dash are: Donny Schatz, David Gravel, James McFadden and Daryn Pittman.

DAVID GRAVEL WINS OPENING NIGHT OF CHAMPION RACING OIL NATIONAL OPEN AT WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY

Greg Hodnett rebounds from crash in first feature to win postponed Summer Nationals feature worth $20,000

MECHANICSBURG, PA – David Gravel was racing third when leaders Greg Hodnett and Shane Stewart got together and spun in turn three.

Gravel missed the wreck, assumed the lead and controlled the final 15 laps scoring the opening night win for the 55th Annual Williams Grove National Open.

His 15th World of Outlaws win this season was worth $10,000. It was his second Grove win of the season.

“We’ve been fast here all year,” said Gravel, of Watertown, Conn. “Hopefully, we can keep it up all weekend. Obviously, it’s the start that we wanted. We’ll see what we can do. It has been a great year.”

Hodnett and Stewart shared the front row to start the 25-lap main event with Hodnett getting the lead. He led Stewart by 1.220 seconds as Gravel raced third in the early laps. Meanwhile, Donny Schatz and Lance Dewease battled for fourth.

Stewart was slowly closing on the leader. He drove off the bottom of turn four and Hodnett the top. The leaders made contact as they raced toward the flagstand. Hodnett spun, hit the fence, but kept going as the caution flew. Stewart officially completed the lap as the leader and Hodnett crossed the line second.

The restart saw close racing again between Hodnett and Stewart. Hodnett put a big slider on Stewart in turn one. They both slid to the fence with inches between the two. They made it off the second turn and down the backstretch. They raced into the third turn and made contact again. This time they both spun and slid across the track and into the fence. Stewart continued while Hodnett was towed to the pits.

Gravel just missed the wreck and assumed the lead.

“I don’t know how I didn’t crash there,” said Gravel. “It scared me a little bit. I got really lucky there.”

Gravel led Daryn Pittman and Dewease down for the restart. At the half-way point, Gravel led by 1.403 as Dewease challenged Pittman for second, but couldn’t make the pass.

Gravel controlled the remaining laps, but did have a brief challenge from Pittman on the inside of turn one with a few laps to go.

“I just had to hang on there,” said Gravel. “I knew Daryn was all over me. To get our 15th win and third win in Pa. this year is pretty amazing.”

Gravel won by 0.445 over Pittman. Dewease, Schatz and Cory Haas completed the top five. Sheldon Haudenschild, Kerry Madsen, Grove point leader Freddie Rahmer, Brian Brown and Brad Sweet rounded out the top 10.

The 48-car field was split into two groups for qualifying time trials. Greg Hodnett set fast time in the first group with a lap of 16.702. Shane Stewart set fast time in the second with a lap of 17.055. Hodnett, Pittman, Stewart and Dewease won the eight-lap heat races. Jason Johnson won the C-main, Hodnett won the dash and

Hodnett started on the pole in the postponed Summer Nationals feature and grabbed the race lead over Gravel and Sweet.

Danny Dietrich charged into third and then drove by Gravel off turn two taking second.

Hodnett reached traffic with a 2.285 second lead. The preferred line was the bottom and Hodnett stayed down and couldn’t lap a slower car.

Dietrich got another great run off turn two. Hodnett tried to lap the car on the backstretch with Dietrich coming on the top. Dietrich jammed it into the third turn and they made contact with Dietrich spinning out and collecting Brian Montieth.

Hodnett kept going and controlled the ensuing restart. Eighth starting Lucas Wolfe was up to fourth passing two cars on the restart then taking second as the caution flew again for spinning cars in turn three.

Another caution on the restart as Dietrich crashed in between turn one and two. A single-file restart ensued.

Hodnett kept Wolfe at bay on the lap 15 restart as Schatz passed Gravel through the middle of turn two. Pittman also passed Gravel taking fourth.

Racing moved to the inside groove over the final 10 laps. Hodnett caught traffic with five laps to go. Wolfe closed on Hodnett late but everybody stayed in line.

Hodnett won by .340 over Wolfe with Schatz, Pittman and Gravel completing the top five. Sweet, Stewart, Dewease, Schuchart and Sheldon Haudenschild rounded out the top 10.

Hodnett’s 71st career Grove win -fourth this year – was worth $20,000.

Williams Grove Champion Racing Oil National Open Is This Week

Prestigious event offers long and storied history

9/24/17

Mechanicsburg – Sprint car fans in the East will gather this Saturday night to see the 55th running of the Williams Grove Speedway Champion Racing Oil National Open for sprint cars sanctioned by the World of Outlaws Craftsman sprint car series, going 40-laps in distance and paying $50,000 to the winner.

The National Open has a grand history that dates back to its inception and first champion in 1963.

Eventual Indianapolis 500 champion Gordon Johncock of Hastings, Mich., won the 100-lap affair in a contraption that had what looked like a wing atop its roll cage.

And this too would soon come to pass, as sprint cars would begin taking over dirt tracks in the east, including Williams Grove Speedway.

Ohio USAC standout Larry Dickson scored Open round two in 1964. Western Pennsylvania invader Henry Jacoby of Franklin took 1965.

The name of Blaney graced the National Open winner’s circle in 1966 as family patriarch Lou took Open laurels decades before his sons Dave and Dale would compete on the scene.

Bobbie Adamson, becoming a region name, took back-to-back victories in 1967 and 1968 before a virtual unknown named Gene Varner from Selinsgrove drove a back-up Gary Wasson No. 5 to an upset win in 1969 after a distance of 150 laps.

The decade of the 1970’s dawned with Altoona flyer Johnny Grum picking up the Open win.

The first of three consecutive wins by Midwest transplant Kenny Weld took place in 1971. All three of Weld’s wins came aboard the Bob Weikert No. 29.

Another transplant, The Bandit, Steve Smith Sr., took wins in 1974 and again in a rain-shortened 122-lap race in 1976 while The Original Outlaw, Bobby Allen drove to a win in 1975.

Texas native racing brother Van May took the 1977 version of the National Open before the Pink Panther struck in 1978 with a Kramer Williamson 100-lap win.

Smokey Snellbaker drove to victory for Charlie Lloyd in 1979 before the grandson of a coal miner named Lucas, Allen Klinger of Hegins kicked off the 1980’s with a 40-lap victory.

Steve Smith Sr. returned for a third Open triumph in 1981.

Lynn Paxton went back-to-back in 1982 and 1983 and stunned the racing world after his second 75-lap win by announcing his early retirement from the sport in victory lane.

Three more in a row for owner Bob Weikert came at the hands of South Dakota driver Doug Wolfgang from 1984 – 1986.

Wolfgang got stunned, denied and passed by Joey Allen for the victory in 1987.

The Mouse, Kenny Jacobs of Holmesville, Ohio, took another win for Weikert in 1988.

The year 1989 found the first true World of Outlaws National Open contested as the yearly sanctioning began with Stevie Smith taking a victory to carry on his father’s tradition.

Technically, the 1978 National Open was considered an outlaws race as well although no outlaws drivers competed in the event.

One of if not the greatest sprint car driver(s) of all time, Hoosier Steve Kinser took his first National Open checkers in 1990.

Stevie Smith returned for another Open win, both for car owner Al Hamilton, in 1991, and now at a distance of 50 laps.

Kinser was again the champion in 1992 before daytime specialist Don Kreitz Jr. drove to victory under the Sunday sun in 1993 after 40 laps of action.

Steve Kinser was again the winner in 1994 before outlaw cousin Mark Kinser took 1995.

The locals went back in front in 1996 with Lance Dewease and No. 461 car owner Walt Dyer.

Sammy Swindell won his first National Open in 1997 on a night that had fans returning to frozen windshields on their cars by the time the race ended.

Persistent rain forced a non-sanctioned event in 1998, won by modified turned sprint star Billy Pauch in a mount owned by John Zemaitis.

Mark Kinser returned for victory in 1999 before one of today’s outlaws stars and champions, Donny Schatz took his first win in 2000 as part of what would become a historic record in National Open competition in another 13 years.

Dewease returned the laurels to the PA Posse turf with back-to-back wins in 2001 and 2002, for car owners Joe Harz and Al Hamilton, taking $25,000 and $30,000, respectively on both accounts.

Steve Kinser was again the winner in 2003 before Schatz returned for two in a row in 2004 and 2005.

The first $50,000 to win National Open was scored by Lancaster’s Doug Esh in 2006 and as it turned out it was the richest and shortest Open in history when rains hit on lap 26 of 40.

Schatz was again the winner in 2007.

Thanks to more persistent rain, another unsanctioned event in 2008 saw future outlaws and All Stars star Cody Darrah drive to victory.

Greg Hodnett took a hugely popular National Open victory for the PA Posse in 2009 driving the Jim and Sandy Kline No. 22.

Sammy Swindell got the second Open win of his career in 2010.

West coast flyer Jason Meyers took the 40-lap, $50,000 laurels in 2011.

The 2012 version saw North Dakota’s Schatz surge for an unprecedented fifth career win in the prestigious classic National Open.

With the $50,000, 40-lap victory, Schatz became the winningest driver in National Open history, breaking a four-win tie with Steve Kinser.

In 2013, the grand career of local driver Fred Rahmer of Salfordville was capped off at Williams Grove with his first and only triumph in the lucrative, prestigious National Open as Rahmer led the final 31 laps of the 40-lap feature before the veteran retired from the sport at the close of the season.

Connecticut driver David Gravel took the $50,000 win in 2014 but not without controversy.

The outlaws flyer was overtaken by local favorite Stevie Smith during the last half of the race before the slightest of contact from a closely following Gravel found Smith spinning in the first turn with six laps to go while Gravel retook command for the victory.

And then Stevie Smith got redemption in what was to be the first three-day National Open in history in 2015.

After three consecutive days of rain stopped the event dead in its tracks, a break with the weather on Sunday allowed a raindated Open to be completed with Smith taking the lead from Danny Dietrich on the ninth tour to lead the final 31 circuits and beat Schatz to the line for victory.

An uncanny three more days of rain and raw weather wiped out a second attempt at a three-day nationals in 2016.

A make up two weeks later found Danny Dietrich taking the lead from Joey Saldana with two laps to go in the 40-lap affair to score a wildly popluar win for the Pennsylvania Posse. Brad Sweet also took a turn at leading the main.

Admission prices for Saturday’s National Open are $35 for adults and $20 for youth.

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

LANCE DEWEASE EARNS FIRST DIRT CLASSIC WIN AND COLLECTS $20,000 PRIZE

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 9/23/2017 – In his victory lane interview, Lance Dewease mentioned he hadn’t been good all night. Turns out he was good enough to win his first Dirt Classic and take home $20,000 on Saturday Night at Lincoln Speedway.

Winner of the 2nd Dirt Classic, Brian Montieth, started on the pole of the main event with Gerard McIntyre Jr. on the outside. Montieth took the lead on the start with McIntyre settled in second.

The leaders hit lapped traffic on lap 7. As Montieth worked his way through lapped traffic he hit the wall on lap 10 opening the door for McIntyre to take the lead.

Montieth caught a break when Tyler Ross spun out in turn 4 on lap 11 bringing out the caution. McIntyre was able to hold off Montieth on the restart and held the lead until Cory Haas got turned around on lap 15 in turn 1 bringing out another caution. McIntyre couldn’t hold off Montieth on the restart and Montieth took the lead back on lap 16.

Anthony Macri flipped in turns 1 and 2 bringing out the red flag on lap 26. As the field was lining up for the restart, the right rear on the leader’s car was going flat. Montieth took the green flag for the restart but his tire did not hold up allowing eighth place starter Lance Dewease to take the lead passing both Montieth and McIntyre.

Montieth pulled off the track on lap 27, ending his night and his attempt at being the second repeat winner of the Dirt Classic.

After some contact with Danny Dietrich on the front stretch, Freddie Rahmer brought out the caution on lap 32 with a flat tire.

Dewease held onto his lead on the restart with McIntyre in second and a charging Dietrich in third. Dietrich got around McIntyre on lap 37 and had his eyes set on Dewease. Three laps were not enough for Dietrich to catch him and Dewease took the checkered flag with a 1.05 second advantage over Dietrich.

Lucas Wolfe crossed the line third, Gerard McIntyre held on to finish fourth and James McFadden completed the top 5.

Hard charger of the night, JJ Grasso finished sixth from his 20th starting spot. Greg Hodnett, Chad Trout, Kerry Madsen and Matt Campbell rounded out the top 10.

FRANKIE HERR TAKES BACK TO BACK WINS; SCOTT DELLINGER CAPTURES POINT TITLE
Latshaw Wins First while Morgan and Horan Get Second Season Wins
By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA…9/23/17
After dominating the Sportsman 100 just seven days prior, Carlisle, PA racer Frankie Herr came back to score his second straight win in Saturday night’s Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman feature at Susquehanna Speedway.

While Herr was dominating the late stages of the 25-lap feature, Lewisberry driver Scott Dellinger’s eighth place finish clinched his first career Super Sportsman track championship. Dellinger will be honored the track banquet later this year.

It appeared a first career winner would come away with the win in the Super Sportsman main as Nate Young set the pace during the first 14 laps but Garrett Williamson used a restart to take the lead and was looking for his first win as he led until lap 18.

That was when Herr, who had lined up 10th on the grid, arrived at the front of the field after methodically working his way forward. Herr drove by Williamson on the 19th lap as Williamson attempted to stay close but Herr’s Devine Motorsports No. 70D was too much once again for the rest of the field as he posted his second win of the season in the final points race for the year.

Williamson settled for a season best runner-up finish with Mike Enders coming home third as Young held on for a fourth place finish with Matt Ondek completing the top five.

Sixth through 10th were Timmie Barrick, Jay Fannasy, Scott Dellinger, Gregg Foster and last year’s track champion Russ Mitten.

Mitten was the Hard Charger for the race after starting 19th. He flipped during his heat race then worked his way forward in the feature only to stop on lap 15. He restarted at the rear and came back for the top ten finish as he finished runner-up in season points.

Herr and Ondek were heat race winners for the 20 car field.

Jed Latshaw raced to his first career win in the 25-lap Bernheisel Race Cars 358 Late Model feature.

Starting sixth, Latshaw made his race winning pass on Joe Lusk with eight laps complete and then kept defending track champion and current point leader Randy Christine, Jr. at bay before securing the win. Latshaw became the 10th different winner in Susquehanna late model competition this season.

Christine finished 2.675 seconds back in the runner-up spot trailed by Lusk, Brian Shuey and Eric Hohol with Sam Rial, Charles Potts, Bobby Beard, Devin Frey and Tim Murphy completing the top ten.

Shuey and Lusk were heat winners for the 17 car field.

Craig Morgan turned in an impressive effort in his second win of the year in the Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stock feature.

Morgan started back in the 13th spot and went out front with 16 laps in the books to capture the win. Morgan took the lead from Bob Scott, Jr. who had led the first eight laps and then again on the 15th lap. Morgan withstood ten caution flags during the 20-lap event.

Morgan crossed under the checkered flag 2.877 seconds ahead of Scott Thunberg with Jim Palm earning the Hard Charger after starting 14th. Fourth went to Joey Hoffer followed by Jimmy Combs, Brandon Wanner, Steve Dove, Eric Tripp, Matt Adams and Scott.

Kyle Saylor and Randy Zechman won heats for the 19 street stock field.

Travis Horan led laps three through 18 of the Superior Homes Extreme Stock feature but gave the lead up to point leader Alex Updegraff on the 19th circuit.

But Horan battled back and used a thrilling final lap pass to score the win, his second of the year over Updegraff, Bill Powell, Patrick McClane and Jeff Gill.

McClane and Michael Smith won heats for the 17 Extreme Stocks.

Susquehanna Speedway returns to action Saturday night, October 7 for the Harvest Classic King of the Hill presented by Hessiron.com featuring the Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman, Bernheisel Race Cars 358 Late Models, Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stocks and ServiceMaster Clean Central PA Legends.

GREG HODNETT WINS NATIONAL OPEN TUNE-UP RACE FRIDAY NIGHT AT WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY

$50,000 to win National Open Next Saturday

MECHANICSBURG, PA – Greg Hodnett is ready for the World of Outlaws-sanctioned Williams Grove National Open next weekend after picking up his 70th career Sprint car win at the Grove Friday night.

Hodnett’s third Grove win of the season was worth $4,000 in the Mike Heffner-owned No. 27, but it wasn’t easy as he had constant pressure from Lance Dewease over the final half of the 25-lap main event.

“I could hear him pushing us around,” said Hodnett about Dewease. “I wasn’t very good off of two no matter what I was doing. In three and four, I couldn’t get stuck again to either go across or hit the bottom. He almost drove by me in three and four the one time. I figured I’d better get going and see if I could hold him off for a couple laps.”

Hodnett, of Spring Grove, started on the pole and beat Brian Brown into the first turn on the opening lap to take the lead. Dewease started fourth and passed Brown taking second on the second lap.

As Dewease stalked Hodnett, Brown and James McFadden traded the third spot and eighth starter Lucas Wolfe passed Matt Campbell taking fifth.

Hodnett’s lead was 1.903 when they reached slower traffic at the back of the field with seven laps completed.

The heavy lapped traffic helped Dewease cut Hodnett’s lead in half in only one lap. Dewease ducked low on Hodnett, but Hodnett maintained the lead by about a half-second.

Dewease took another shot at Hodnett, but wasn’t able to seal the deal as the drivers ranked second and third on the all-time Grove win list continued to battle for the win.

“If he could have beat me to the cushion it would have been his easily,” said Hodnett, who starts on the pole of the postponed Summer Nationals feature Thursday night. “Lance is not going to crash himself or me because we know we’ve got to race tomorrow and race next week. This is more of an organized hot lap session than anything for us. Although it’s nice to win and be competitive. We also know there’s bigger fish to fry here in the next couple weeks. He had a huge run coming off four and tried to take that shot. Honestly, if he would have been about two feet in front of us then I would have backed off and let him go, but fortunately we had a lot of momentum coming off the top.”

Hodnett stayed in front of Dewease as they both switched lanes working through lapped traffic. The last five laps saw Dewease challenge Hodnett again on the low side, but Hodnett switched to the bottom groove to take away Dewease’s preferred line.

Hodnett cleared one final lapped car off turn two on the last lap securing the win by 0.803 over Dewease.

“It’s a good thing it wasn’t 30 laps that’s all I can say,” said Hodnett.

Wolfe passed Brown to finish third. Point leader Freddie Rahmer raced from 10th to fifth. McFadden, Campbell, Kerry Madsen, Brian Montieth and 20th starter Danny Dietrich rounded out the top 10. The non-stop time was 8:34.

TJ Stutts set fast time over the 29-car field with a lap of 16.941. Stutts, Hodnett and James McFadden won the eight-lap heat races. Hodnett passed Brown on the final lap to win the dash. Anthony Macri won the B-main.

Scott Fisher led all 20 laps winning the 358-Sprint feature. Track champion Kevin Nouse started 12th and finished a close second. Kyle Denmyer, Chris Frank and Chase Dietz completed the top five. Steve Owings, Brett Wanner, Nyle Berkes, Troy Wagaman Jr. and Steve Drevicki rounded out the top 10.

“The way this year went, we really, really needed this,” said Fisher.

Kyle Denmyer, Brett Wanner and Kevin Nouse won the 358 heats.

DANNY DIETRICH TAKES THURSDAY NIGHT THUNDER WIN

Hayden Pascoe Wins Legends Feature By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA…9/21/17 Danny Dietrich used a bold move on a lap 12 restart and never looked back as he raced to his first win of the season at Susquehanna Speedway in Thursday night’s BAPS Auto Paints and Supplies 410 Sprint Series feature.

Dietrich’s ninth career Susquehanna win was worth $4,000 to the Gary Kauffman owned, Weikert’s Livestock, Sandoe’s Fruit Market team. He became the fifth different winner in six BAPS events this season.

It was an eventful night for Dietrich, who ran out of fuel during his time trial laps resulting in a fifth place start in his heat race. With the top two finishers in the heat going to the dash, Dietrich blew through the field in the heat to finish second and put himself into position to capitalize in the dash.

He lined out fourth for the 30-lap feature as Missouri driver Brian Brown grabbed the lead from his front row starting spot.

Brown, who won both events he competed in last weekend in Central PA, was looking to make it three straight but his run out front ended on lap 11 with a right rear flat tire.

This turned the lead over to fellow starter Brian Montieth, who led lap 12 before a red for Mike Walter halted action.

Dietrich was ready on the ensuing restart, using every inch of turn two to sneak by Montieth and take the lead but the race quickly returned to red after James McFadden’s attempted slide job resulted in a hard crash in turn four that also collected Greg Hodnett, who had worked his way up from his 12th starting spot.

With an open red flag, Hodnett’s team changed the top wing and he lined up third on the restart behind Dietrich and Montieth.

Hodnett disposed of Montieth on the restart and set his sights on Dietrich, who had opened a near three second lead at one point.

Hodnett began to close the gap on the fast running Dietrich and was running about two seconds off the pace when the Mike Heffner owned car went up in smoke with 20 laps down.

It was all Dietrich over the final laps but the action for the runner-up spot was fierce as Montieth, Tim Kaeding and Brock Zearfoss traded sliders several times before the checkered flag.

Dietrich crossed 1.321 seconds ahead of Montieth for his 11th win of the season with Kaeding third, Zearfoss fourth and Lucas Wolfe fifth.

Rounding out the top ten finishers were 14th starter Trey Starks, Kyle Reinhardt, Dale Blaney, Gerard McIntyre, Jr. and Mark Smith.

Brown paced the 21 car field in time trials with a lap of 15.272 seconds as heats were won by Kaeding, Wolfe and Walter. Montieth won the Dash.

Hayden Pascoe raced to his first win of the season in the 20-lap ServiceMaster Clean Central PA Legends feature.

Pascoe started fourth and dominated much of the event as he picked up the win over Travis Perry, eighth starting Bob Stough, 17th starting Don Leiby and Trent Yoder.

Harlon Leppo, Scott Houdeshell and Hayden Pascoe won heats for the 22 Central PA Legends.

The seventh and final BAPS 410 Sprint Series event will close out the season at Susquehanna Speedway on Saturday, October 28 when the Sprint Showdown for 410 Sprints will highlight the action. Joining the 410’s that day will be the 358 Sprints. Race time will be 4PM.

Susquehanna returns to action this coming Saturday night September 23rd on Hanover Auto Team Night featuring the Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman, Bernheisel Race Cars 358 Late Models, Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stocks and Superior Homes Extreme stocks. Racing begins at 7PM which will be the final race for the month of September.

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY

 16 September 2017 By Michael Batz

BROWN WINS ASCoC JIM NACE MEMORIAL NATIONAL OPEN IN FIRST CAREER SPRINT CAR START AT SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY SATURDAY

SELINSGROVE, Pa. -- Although Brian Brown of Grain Valley, Mo., had never been to Selinsgrove Speedway before, he had a connection to the speedway and the final race of the season that was run Saturday. The Jim Nace Memorial 35th Annual National Open was special to Brown because his engine builder, Charlie Garrett, had built engines for Nace’s sprint cars as well.

At the start of the 30-lap, $8,000-to-win All Star Circuit of Champions 410 sprint car main event, outside front row start Brown outran polesitter James McFadden into turn one. Brown led the field until a red flag on lap three was displayed for Caleb Armstrong who flipped on the back stretch.

The field restarted, but then TJ Stutts flipped in turn four to bring out the red flag again on lap four. No driver injuries were reported.

Third-place starter Brock Zearfoss was the car on the move when the green flag came back out. Zearfoss was soon third closing in on James McFadden.

McFadden began to close a straight-away down to car lengths as Brown tried to work through the lap traffic. Brown negotiated the lap cars cautiously while McFadden and Zearfoss pushed as hard as they could to close the gap. Zearfoss made the pass of McFadden for second before McFadden slowed.

McFadden’s car stopped on the front stretch with mechanical issues to bring out the caution on lap 12. The opportunity for Brown to have an open race track on lap 12 was just what he needed. Brown pulled away to a large lead over Zearfoss while Zearfoss battled with fifth-place starter Greg Hodnett.

Trey Starks started 21st after breaking in his heat race. By the half way mark, Starks, had driven into the seventh spot.

Brown was just catching the tail of the field again when the yellow flag was presented on lap 21 for the All Star point leader Chad Kemenah when his car came to a stop in turn two.

Zearfoss knew with only ten laps remaining he would need to make his move on the restart. Zearfoss dove to the inside of Brown in turn one, but Brown was too strong off the outside of the speedway taking the race lead back.

Brown did catch lap traffic with two laps to go, but this time Zearfoss gained no ground.

Brown led the remaining laps on his way to his first All Star win in the National Open.

In victory lane Brown credited his crew with their hard work and his sponsors for their support to allow him to come to Pennsylvania to compete.

“I guess a half mile is to my liking. It’s not the same exact layout as Knoxville, but it has its similarities. I never seen the place before tonight and we were quickest in hot laps here tonight,” said Brown in Victory Lane. “Open air was so important, as it is anywhere, and we were able to take advantage of it tonight.”

Brown, Zearfoss, and Hodnett were the podium finishers. Anthony Macri finished fourth ahead of Trey Starks. Starks, the night’s Fast Tees Fast Timer over the 40-car field, was the hard charger gaining 16 spots.

Lucas Wolfe finished in sixth followed Danny Dietrich, Ryan Smith, Jason Schultz, and Tony Stewart.

Heat race wins went to Tim Kaeding, Blane Heimbach, Ryan Smith, Anthony Macri, while Trey Starks won the B-Main.

McFadden and Brown won the Dash’s.

Tommy Slanker led every lap of the Pro Stock season finale. Slanker, the 2017 track champion, took the lead right at the drop of the green flag. Shaun Lawton spent the race chasing Slanker but had to settle for second. Dustin Snook was third.

Cory Long and Brandon Moser were the remaining cars in the top five. Sixth through tenth finishing spots were taken by Kurt Wray, John Troxell, Noah Jenson, Matt Hornberger, and Bill Conrad.

Kyle Bachman and Shaun Lawton won the heat races.

The speedway was battling the threat of fog for much of the main events after an early evening rain shower. The fog got too thick to complete the night’s 305 Sprint Car feature in a safe manner.

FRANKIE HERR DOMINATES SPORTSMAN 100 Geesaman Takes Street Stocks while Updegraff Gets Extreme Stock Win By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA…9/16/17 Heading into Saturday night’s 43rd annual Credit Connection Auto Sales Gary Wolford Sportsman 100 at Susquehanna Speedway, Frankie Herr had just four top ten finishes on the season. And none of those finishes were inside the top five.

But when the big money and all the laurels was on the line, it was the Carlisle, PA driver who made a snoozer out of the legendary race putting on a flag to flag dominating performance to capture his eighth career win in the biggest race of the season for the Super Sportsman.

After timing fourth, Herr lined up on the pole for the 100 lap test and would never look back but had plenty of cautions to keep the field on his bumper throughout the feature.

Twelve yellows and two red flags slowed the pace of the 100 lapper.

A three car crash on the start involving Rich Eichelberger, Dave Conrad, Jr. and Mike Enders quickly brought out the first yellow. Various single car incidents slowed action up through lap 73 when a red for a crash involving Justin Williams, Timmie Barrick and Chad Criswell.

Herr enjoyed big leads throughout the event and held a four second advantage when a lap 91 caution flew to close point leader Scott Dellinger on his bumper.

Dellinger, who started 11th didn’t have anything for Herr and then lost the runner-up spot to leading feature winner Kenny Edkin in the late laps but it was all Herr out front in his Devine Motorsports owned, Victory Lane Construction, Dirty Deeds Repair and Fabrication No. 70D.

Herr’s winnings included a $4,000 payday for the 100 lapper and another $3,419 in lap money for a big night of winnings totaling $7,419 for his first win of the season at Susquehanna. He also became the ninth different winner in the Sportsman this year. Edkin, who started fourth finished second with Dellinger, 15th starter Steve Fannasy and 10th starter Jay Fannasy competing the top five finishers.

Crossing sixth was Garrett Williamson trailed by Matt Ondek, Davey Walsh, 22na and Hard Charger Chad Smith and Nate Young.

Edkin paced the 27-car field in time trials with a lap of 17.287 seconds while the two qualifiers were won by Mike Enders and Davey Walsh.

Jonestown’s Jasen Geesaman raced to his second win of the season in the Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stock feature.

Bob Scott, Jr. set the pace during the first six laps before giving way to Geesaman who drove off from the field to post the win ahead of Scott, Chris Derr, Jim Palm and Craig Morgan with Jimmy Combs, Mike Potts, Matt Adams, Steve Dove and Joey Hoffer completing the top ten.

Geesaman and Adams won heats for the 20 street stock field.

Defending champion and current point leader Alex Updegraff continued his winning ways in Superior Homes Extreme Stock action taking his 11th win of the season.

Updegraff took control with eight laps complete and never looked back in the win over Michael Smith, Jeff Gill, Kyle Emig and Donnie Broderick. There were 10 Extreme Stocks pitside.

Susquehanna Speedway returns to action two times this week with the big Thursday night Thunder BAPS Auto Paints and Supplies 410 Sprint Series event Thursday night, September 21. It will be the sixth race in the seven race BAPS series . The ServiceMaster Clean Central PA Legends join the racing card beginning at 7PM.

CURT MICHAEL WINS LAST LAP THRILLER IN URC/358 SPRINT CHALLENGE;

Bryan Bernheisel wires the field to win the Precise Racing Products 358 Late Model Feature

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 9/16/2017 - Ocean View, DE driver Curt Michael showed why he is a nine-time URC champion Saturday night at Lincoln Speedway as he took advantage of a last lap restart to slide under race-leader Doug Hammaker in the final turns to the checkered and hang on to win the special 25-lap MACH 1 Trailer Services URC/358 Sprint Challenge. In the process Michael not only collected the $3,000 winners’ purse, but the bragging rights for winning the URC/358 Sprint Challenge.

“I’m sure glad to win and take home MACH 1 Trailer Services $1,000…I appreciate it!, “said a jubilant Curt Michael in regards to the added race sponsorship money which raised the winner’s purse to $3,000 for the night.

The final lap drama was set up when a caution for debris was thrown as the leaders took the white flag with one lap to go. Sixth-starting Hammaker had taken the lead from polesitter and race-long leader Chris Coyle on the 15th lap and appeared to be on his way to the 25-lap feature win.

Seventh-starting Michael was frantically trying to keep pace with the leaders and got by Coyle for the runner-up spot a lap later on lap 16.

Michael got his first chance to challenge Hammaker for the top spot with a caution restart with three laps to go. But Hammaker got a good restart and easily kept Michael behind him.

Debris in turns one and two brought out the caution just as the leaders got the white flag signaling one lap to go, giving Michael one more shot at the win.

Michael was able to keep pace with Hammaker as they took the green in one-lap shoot-out to the checkers. Heading into the final turns to the checkered Michael dove to the bottom of turns three and four and was able to slide up in front of Hammaker as they exited the turn with the checkered flag waving. Hammaker tried to dive under Michael exiting the final turn and outrace him to the checkered. But he didn’t have enough speed to get it done as Michael edged out Hammaker for the win.

But the excitement didn’t end there.

As Michael and Hammaker took the checkered, Michael took his foot off the throttle and slowed. Hammaker appeared to still be at full throttle as they approached turn one and caught the right-front wheel Michaels. Hammaker then was launched into a series of violent end-over-end flips and came to a rest along the outer concrete wall with Michaels spinning on three wheels also sliding into the wall backwards.

After picking up the pieces of his damaged winning sprint car, Michaels’ Bill Gallagher-owned GEI/Valley Forge, Inc./Kruger Trailers/Lelands.com/BK Trucking was towed to the post-race scales and then finally to victory lane.

“I got a read on how (Hammaker) was restarting the race on the restart before that last one,” said Michael on his final lap restart strategy. “He got me on that restart before (lap 22), he caught me sleeping. That next one (the final lap) I stayed on him. I wasn’t sure if I could get a good enough run on him to slide him and win the race.”

Meanwhile Hammaker slowly got out of his destroyed car and was eventually transported to a local hospital where it was it later reported he had a fractured right leg, a very bruised left leg, and a sore right hand/wrist.

The enormity of the moment was not lost on Michael in victory lane.

“I can’t thank these guys enough who showed up,” exclaimed Michael when asked about the huge turn-out for the special URC/358 Challenge. “54 cars! URC winning the thing! I couldn’t thank them (racers) enough for showing up…we could have a real nice rivalry between URC and the 358s here. I also want to thank these fans for showing up. I know we’re up against the Selinsgrove National Open tonight but I think we put on a pretty good show for the fans that did show up.”

And the show didn’t stop with just the first and second place cars of Michael and Hammaker. 23rd-starting Tyler Ross advanced 20 positions after 25 laps to finish third. Early-race leader Coyle settled for fourth and 12th-starting Josh Weller fifth.

Completing the top-10 were 21st-starting Todd Gracey, Scott Fisher, 15th-starting Brent Shearer, Bryn Gohn, and 16th-starting Ashley Cappetta.

Heats for the 54 sprinters were won by Chris Allen, Jr., Chandler Leiby, Jeff Halligan, Gohn, and Hammaker. Twin consolation were won by Gracey and Steve Drevicki.

Jonestown’s Bryan Bernheisel was the class of the Precise Racing Products 358 Late Model field as he led all 20 laps from his pole position to pick-up his first career Lincoln Speedway win.

But the win was not easy as he had to hold off Gene Kanub, Bobby Beard, Cam Zeigler, and Robbie Emory over the closing laps for the win.

Completing the top-10 were Ryan Walls, Alan Sagi, Precise Racing Products Series point leader Travis Mease, Sean Merkel, and Bryon Sipe.

Heats for the 24 358 Late Models on hand were won by Bryan Bernheisel, Cam Zeigler and Bobby Beard.

Next Saturday, Saturday, September 23rd, Lincoln will hosts its’ biggest race of the year with the FOURTH ANNUAL “DIRT CLASSIC” for the 410 Sprints ($20,000 to win) PLUS FIREWORKS. Time trials are scheduled for 7:30 PM. Pit gates will open at 3:30 PM, admission for advanced ticket holders 3:45 PM, with race night tickets going on sale at 4 PM.

Matt Campbell Gets First Career Grove Sprint Car Win, Hammaker Wins 358s

9/15/17

Mechanicsburg – Matt Campbell of Fawn Grove picked up his first career 410 Sprint car win Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway, taking the lead from Tim Wagaman on the 10th tour of the 25-lap feature.

.

The 19-year-old from Fawn Grove, a co-National 410 Rookie-of-the-Year last year, has been fast at the Grove before, and finally put together a complete performance earning $3,600 for the win.

Wagaman started on the pole and led the opening two circuits of the 25-lap main event while racing fiercely with Jared Esh, who started second.

The pair see-sawed for the lead repeatedly before Esh crossed the line with three laps complete as the leader by just a few feet over Wagaman.

Wagaman then passed Esh back in the first and second turns but Esh battled back to the inside on the backchute and the pair raced wheel to wheel and wing to wing into the third turn with neither pilot giving an inch.

The end result found Esh backing his car up across the racetrack in the third corner before bringing out the red flag after massive contact with the outside rail.

Esh was transported by ambulance complaining of neck and back pain.

Anthony Macri, who was running third at the time, spun to avoid the crash. Under the red flag, Brian Montieth, who would have restarted fourth, was pushed to the pits.

Wagaman controlled the restart with sixth starter Campbell now in second and Wagaman was running the cushion as Campbell made the inside groove work to close in on the leader lap after lap, especially right through the middle of the second corner.

An inside move off the second corner got Campbell by Wagaman for the lead and Campbell completed lap 10 as the leader just before the caution flew for a stopped Steve Buckwalter on the front chute.

Oval officials announced just prior to Saturday’s main event that the 51st annual Tuscarora 50 held in September 2018 will pay $51,000 to win and an even $1,000 just to start the prestigious event.

YORK HAVEN, PA…9/9/17 . Anytime Gene Knaub enters a 358 late model race, it’s a good bet that he will be in the hunt when the checkered flag falls.

Case in point for the 7th annual Creekside Auto Sales Topless 50 presented by Bernheisel Race Cars Saturday night at Susquehanna Speedway where the Dover driver dominated the marquee event, leading all 50 laps to post the huge $5,000 payday.

Other winners during the big two night racing weekend included Austin Bishop in the Freedmont® Mortgage Lending PASS/IMCA Sprints and Alex Updegraff in the Superior Homes Extreme Stock feature on Friday night while Chris Meleason in the Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman and Steve Dove’s Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stock feature joined Knaub as Saturday night feature winners.

Starting on the outside of row one, Knaub quickly took command of the Topless 50 feature and would never be seriously challenged during the entire 50 lap test despite a late race caution with eight laps to go.

Knuab, who last visited Susquehanna in June and won both the Appalachian Mountain Super Late Model Speedweek feature and the 358 late model main that night took the checkered flag 3.421 seconds ahead of runner-up Brian Shuey, who started 12th. The win was Knaub’s third of the season at the York Haven oval.

Bobby Beard finished in the third spot ahead of 17th starter and Hard Charger Derike Quade with defending track champion and current point leader Randy Christine, Jr. fifth. Completing the top ten finishers were Randy Stoudt, Sean Merkel, Bryan Bernheisel, Chase Billet and Taylor Farlling.

Weaver was presented with $200 cash from Millers Racing Parts and a $400 gift certificate from Brown and Miller Racing Solutions as well as a free Hoosier Racing Tire. Weaver was running inside the top five when he had to pit for a flat tire during the fuel stop.

Heat races on Friday night were won by Farlling, Weaver, Beard and Knaub. Daulton Bigler won the B-Main Saturday night.

All 358 late model teams in attendance were presented with $200 in free products and $1,500 in discounts and coupons as part of the Bernheisel Race Components Manufacturers Night.

Chris Meleason led flag to flag to capture his first win of the year in the Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman feature.

Aboard the Mike Callahan owned car, the Carlisle driver held back challenges from sixth starting Tony Jackson before becoming the eighth different winner this season. Meleason took the checkered flag .664 seconds ahead of Jackson with Chase Gutshall, 13th starter Kenny Edkin and Garrett Williamson competing the top five. Rounding out the top ten were 14th starter Rich Eichelberger, Todd Leonard, 25th starter and Artwerks/Young Racing Hard Charger Jay Fannasy, 18th starter Scott Dellinger and Mike Enders.

Heats for the 28 cars were won by Frankie Herr, Gutshall and Meleason.

Dove, who became the 11th different street stock winner this season held back Scott Thunberg for the win with Jim Palm, 15th starter Matt Adams and 13th starter Craig Morgan completing the top five. Sixth through 10th were Mike Potts, John Stoll, Jr., 20th starter and Artwerks Hard Charger Jim Jacobs, Richie Dobson, Brandon Wanner.

The race was red flagged on lap 5 for a seven car crash on the front stretch.

Kory Sites, Ryan Smith and Joey Hoffer won heats for the 23 street stocks.

He became the seventh different winner at the track this season as he defeated ninth starter Zach Newlin, Kyle Smith, 13th starter Dave Grube and Dave Brown with Darren Miller, Joe Kay, John Fiore, Billy Ney and Colby Dice rounding out the top ten.

Heats for the 30 PASS/IMCA Sprints were wony by Nick Sweigart, Bishop and Joe Kay.

Michael Smith and Bill Powell won heats for the 17 car field.

9/9/17

Port Royal – Aboard the Don Kreitz Jr. owned No. 69K, Lance Dewease of Fayetteville rode to victory in the 50th annual Tuscarora 50 for sprint cars at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night, recording triumph in the richest event held in oval history.

With the victory, Dewease completed a clean sweep of the weekend’s Tuscarora 50 races sanctioned by the All Star Circuit of Champions Sprints at Port Royal.

After claiming Friday’s Night Before The 50 checkers worth $5,000, Dewease took home $51,350 including lap money for his run in Saturday’s Tuscarora 50 itself, to push his weekend earnings to $56,350.

The victory was the Fayetteville flyers unprecedented sixth tally in the prestigious event, with no other pilot owning more than four wins and it gave car owner Don Kreitz Jr. of Sinking Spring his record-tying fifth win in the race as an owner.

Dewease won the race last year for Kreitz and Kreitz himself drove his own machine to three wins, thus tying Al Hamilton and Bob Weikert, who also own five Tuscarora checkers.

Without questions, Dewease’s most important race of the night occurred in his running of the events fourth heat race.

Having started second in the eight-lap affair, Dewease had to contend with Mark Smith and Greg Hodnett to earn the sixth starting spot in the main event.

A win in his heat would give him that starting spot and on the start Dewease fell back to third, behind Smith and third starter Hodnett.

Dewease brought the fans to their feet as he rallied from behind to dig past Hodnett for second, commanding his car to maneuver to the front in a race-long battle to get the top spot.

After battling hard for the win, he was able to get by Smith with a rousing pass for control and those heat race battles set the pilot up for his good fortunes in the feature although he destroyed his tires in the process of digging to get the heat victory.

In the 25-mile, 50-lap, 50th annual Tuscarora 50 feature, polesitter Ryan Smith of Kunkletown took the lead when action began over Danny Dietirch and Dewease on the first lap, who had gotten a great start.

Dewease made relatively quick work of Dietrich for second, motoring into the spot while using the low groove on just the third tour.

It then took Dewease only three circuits to run down Smith’s No. 94 and drive by for control on the seventh tour.

From there, the leader worked lapped traffic for the balance of the non-stop first 25-lap segment of the race and by the time the mandatory red flag for refueling appeared on lap 25, Dewease held a 3.762 second advantage over Smith.

Ninth starter Brock Zearfoss drove into contention while also battling for the track title on the 19th tour, getting by Dietrich for third, where he would restart after the refueling period.

Dietrich restarted with the fourth spot and Joey Saldana restarted fifth.

The second non-stop, 25-lap segment would prove to be all Dewease on the restart and for the duration as with 20 laps to go the gap between first and second was 2.886 seconds.

Dewease was able to work the bottom, middle and high grooves whenever needed to hold onto firm command of the race and ended up taking his 106th career Port Royal sprint car win by 3.948 seconds ahead of Ryan Smith.

Zearfoss would cross the finish line in third and in doing so the Jonestown pilot pushed himself into a scant point lead that netted him the 2017 Weikert’s Livestock Port Royal Speedway track championship over Dylan Cisney of Port Royal.

After starting 22nd in the race, Lucas Wolfe rode home fourth and took home hard charger laurels worth $1,000 in memory of the late Bob Bergstresser.

Fifth place went to Kerry Madsen.

Sixth through 10th went to Danny Dietrich, Brian Brown, Saldana, Ryan Taylor and four-time Tuscarora champion Greg Hodnett.

TJ Stutts earned $760 for the Lucas Snyder hard luck award as the first car out of the race, finishing 27th.

Heats for the 66 cars in action went to Tony Stewart, Tim Kaeding, Ryan Smith, Lance Dewease, Danny Dietrich and Carl Bowser.

The C Main was taken by Freddie Rahmer with Greg Hodnett taking the B Main.

Kerry Madsen set fast time with a lap of 16.164 seconds.

Kody Lehman earned the Will Gamble award as the first Port Royal regular not to qualify for the show, worth $300.

Andrew Stotler led the entire 22 laps of the Butch Renninger Memorial for econo late models, taking home some $2,026 for the win including lap money.

Andrew Yoder took second from Eric Irvin with two laps to go.

With a finish of fourth in the event, Newport’s Tim Fedder ended the night as the 2017 Gray’s Auto & Towing Econo Late Model Track Champion.

Derrick Garman finished the race in fifth.

Heats went to Garman, Irvin and Fedder.

Friday, September 8, 2017 Trail-Way Speedway Hanover, PA For Immediate Release

UPCOMING EVENTS: Fri., September 16, 2017 – AMA Motorcycle Short Track (Gates open at 3:00 p.m., Racing begins at 6:00 p.m.) Sat., September 23, 2017 – Kevin Gobrecht Memorial/National Open – 270 & 600 Micro Sprints, Central PA Legends (Gates open at 3:00 p.m., Racing begins at 6:00 p.m.)

TYLER ROSS, GARRETT BARD, CHRIS TRANSEAU, & BRIAN WALLS RACE WINNERS, STEVE OWINGS, BRAD WEBER, & BRIAN WALLS TRACK CHAMPS AT TRAIL-WAY

HANOVER, PA (9/8/2017) – Lincoln University’s Tyler Ross showed them how it’s done at Trail-Way Speedway Friday night.

Ross stepped away from the 410 sprint division to pilot the Dick Smith-owned, Tom Rumsey Incorporated #41B to the win in his first Trail-Way appearance of the year.

Hard charger Steve Owings, who started ninth, finished second and claimed his first “358” sprint car track title in the process.

“Steve was definitely better than me,” said Ross after scoring his first Trail-Way win, “Steve got by me square and fair but the caution saved me. This is the same right rear tire that Jeff Halligan won with last week, and it’s pretty well worn out.”

Owings actually slid under Ross for the race lead in turns one and two of the final lap, but the caution came out for Andrew Frye, who came to a stop after striking the wall just in front of the leaders. That gave the lead back to Ross for the restart, and he held off Owings by two carlengths at the end.

“I tried, but yellow flag kept coming out,” said Owings when interviewed about his track title, “We were counting cars for a while until they got down to 14. We didn’t win the fight, but we won the war. We’ve been racing here a long time…back to motorcycles and micro-sprints…and I’m honored to be track champ. This is a great track, and it’s fun to race here.”

Third through fifth were Dwight Leppo, Mike Bittinger, and 12th-starting Isaac Sneeringer, who began the night with a shot at the track title.

Qualifiers for the 20 “358” sprinters were won by Bittinger, Owings, and Leppo.

Garrett Bard made a last-lap pass over Zane Rudisill in turns one and two following a restart to claim the win in the 20-lap 600cc micro-sprint feature. Jim Young also got by Rudisill in the final turns to finish second, with Rudisill settling for third, Kameron Morral fourth, and 12th-starting Bradley Weber fifth. Weber was the event’s hard charger and also earned the 2017 track title.

Heats for the 15 micros were won by Young and Hannah Riser, who was uninjured in a 19th-lap flip in the feature.

Chris Transeau picked up his third win of the year in the 20-lap Central PA Legends feature, holding off Australian Hayden Pascoe, with Travis Mc Clelland, Chandler Pagnotta, and 11th-starting Rick Hartwig rounding out the top five.

Heats for the 16 Legends were won by Trent Yoder and Scott Smith, who was unable to start the feature.

Brian Walls ended the night as the race winner, hard charger, and track champ in the street stock division. Walls started eighth in the eight-car field and had the lead by the end of the third lap. He led the rest of the way, with Travis Leh, Jeremy Stremmel, Gene Miller, and Kenny Startzman completing the top five.

Walls also won the lone qualifier for the eight street stocks on hand.

Next Saturday, September 16, Trail-Way is back in action with the final AMA Motorcycle Short Track event of the 2017 racing season. Gates open at 3:00 p.m. with racing scheduled to begin at 7:45 p.m.

The following Saturday, September 23, Trail-Way hosts the Kevin Gobrecht Memorial/National Open featuring the 270 and 600 Micro Sprints. The Central PA Legends are also scheduled to compete. Pre entry forms are available on the Trail-Way Speedway website (trail-wayspeedway.com).

Dewease Beats Brown For Port Royal Night Before The 50 Laurels In 65-car Field

Rine Wins Renninger Memorial Moon Shine Late Model Series Finale

Coleby Frye claims Moon Shine series title, Mike Lupfer take Port Royal late model crown

9/8/17

Port Royal – Lance Dewease of Fayetteville claimed Friday night’s 30-lap Night Before The Tuscarora 50 All Star Circuit of Champions Sprint Cars feature at Port Royal Speedway, taking home $5,000 for his third win in the history of the event after out dueling Missouri’s Brian Brown for the victory.

An amazing 65-car field of sprint cars entered competition for the event with the 50th annual Tuscarora 50 paying $50,000 to win looms on Saturday night.

In the 33-lap Butch Renninger Memorial Moon Shine Camo Rt. 35 Challenge Series finale, Danville’s Jeff Rine pocketed the winner’s loot while Coleby Frye of Dover took home the Moon Shine Camo Series title.

The first lap of the Night Before the 50 was slowed when point leader Dylan Cisney came up with a busted racer on the frontstretch.

And then the second lap was also slowed when Tony Stewart rolled to a stop with a blown motor, also on the frontstretch.

Brown of Grain Valley, Missouri, started on the pole in the event and was leading early over Mike Wagner, who took second from second-starter TJ Stutts on the second tour.

After a brief challenge from Wagner on the lap two restart, Brown was able to pull away with the lead while Dewease worked his way into contention.

He was able to get by Stutts for third with five away and then overtook Wagner for second on the 10th tour as the leaders entered the rear of the field.

With the lead, Brown worked his way through traffic at a dizzying pace while Dewease methodically closed down the distance between himself and the leader.

Brown made his best time buzzing around the top side while Dewease proved to work best when he ran the middle to bottom groove and as Brown worked traffic on the high side, Dewease would use that bottom groove to take control with five laps to go.

After a skirmish a few laps earlier during which time Dewease was able to get under Brown for control, the Midwest driver was able to slingshot back into control, leaving Dewease to lick his wounds and run him down again.

And then as the pair raced to the five-to-go mark, Brown got bottled up in traffic in the fourth corner and that was all Dewease needed to drive underneath for control.

Brown kept it close for a lap or two after giving up the lead before loosing ground at the finish.

TJ Stutts rode home a solid third followed by Greg Hodnett and Kerry Madsen, who started 10th.

Sixth through 10th went to Danny Dietrich, Mike Wagner, Dale Blaney, Danny Holtgraver and Ryan Smith.

The victory was the 105th of Dewease’s career at the oval and his fifth of the season at the track.

Heats for the 65-car field went to Trenton Sheaffer, Brady Bacon, TJ Stutts, Greg Hodnett and Brian Brown.

The C Main was won by Brandon Matus with Caleb Armstrong taking the D Main. Trey Starks copped the B Main.

Twin four-lap dashes went to Brown and Stutts with Brown setting a new four-lap track record of 1:04.111 seconds, eclipsing the old mark set by Dale Blaney in 1996.

Kerry Madsen set fast time with a lap of 15. 443 seconds.

Polesitter Jason Covert led from the start of the 33-lap Butch Renninger Memorial for super late models with Jeff Miller following.

A restart with two laps completed found sixth starter Jeff Rine already up to third.

Rine used the outside lane to blast around Miller on the restart and set his sights on Covert.

Covert entered traffic with the lead on the 11th tour and was heavily pressured by Rine over the ensuing laps before Rine got control on the 15th tour.

The pair actually swapped the lead twice on the lap with Covert going back out in front on the backchute only to again succumb to Rine as the pair traversed the third and fourth corner.

Once in front, Rine went unheeded to the victory that was worth $3,952 including lap money.

Ninth starter Coleby Frye worked the field to drive into second on the 21st tour however Frye was unable to challenge for the win, instead finishing 1.716 second behind at the finish.

Covert rode home third followed by Chad Hollenbeck and 25th starter Andy Haus.

Sixth through 10th went to Gary Stuhler, Mike Lupfer, Jeff Miller, Tim Wilson and Marvin Winters.

Heats went to Lupfer, Miller, Frye and Hollenbeck with Matt Sponaugle taking the consolation race.

Lupfer wrapped up the 2017 Port Royal track title with his run.

Frye claimed the Moon Shine Camo Rt. 35 Challenge Series title over Hollenbeck, Rine, Lupfer and Dylan Yoder.

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY JIM NACE MEMORIAL 35th ANNUAL NATIONAL OPEN FOR 410 SPRINT CARS WILL CLOSE OUT 2017 RACING SEASON SEPTEMBER 16

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Selinsgrove Speedway will present its crown jewel open wheel event, the Jim Nace Memorial 35th Annual National Open for 410 sprint cars sanctioned by the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions, at 7 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 16.

The Nace Memorial National Open will be a 30-lap tribute race paying $8,000 to win and $500 to start out of the $30,000 event. The Fast Tees Fast Time Award will pay $300. Time trials, heat races, and a B-main will be the qualifying format.

Joining the 410 sprint cars on the Sept. 16 racing card will be the 305 sprint cars in a 20-lap main event. Track gates will open at 4 p.m. and qualifying will start at 7 p.m.

For the eighth straight year, the 410 Open will honor the life and racing career of Nace, the track’s only five-time sprint car champion who died in November 2009 following a seven-year battle with cancer.

In last year’s race, Lucas Wolfe of Mechanicsburg scored his second career victory in the Open and set a new 30-lap track record for 410 sprint cars at the Superspeedway of Dirt Track Racing. Wolfe was also an Open winner in 2005.

Fred Rahmer, of Salfordville, is the track’s only five-time winner of the Open with victories in 1995, 1996, 1997, 1999, and 2000.

In 2014, Greg Hodnett of Spring Grove became the third driver to win the Open four times. Hodnett’s other Open victories came in 1998, 2004, and 2007. Todd Shaffer of Millerstown is the other driver on the Open career win list with four championships in 1993, 1994, 2001, and 2008.

In 2013, Pat Cannon of Etters joined the late Maynard Yingst of Linglestown and Rahmer as only the third driver to win three consecutive National Opens. Cannon also won in 2012 and 2011. Yingst’s wins in the Open occurred in 1983, 1984, and 1985.

Other past repeat winners include Lance Dewease of Fayetteville (2002, 2009, 2010) and Don Kreitz Jr. of Sinking Spring (1986 and 1992).

Single-time winners of the Open include Dave Blaney of Cortland, Ohio (1987); Keith Kauffman of Mifflintown (1988); Doug Wolfgang of Sioux Falls, S.D. (1989); Sammy Swindell of Bartlett, Tenn. (1990); Johnny Mackison Jr. of York (1991); Stevie Smith of Broken Arrow, Okla. (2003); Chad Layton of Harrisburg (2006); and Danny Dietrich of Gettysburg (2015).

The National Open will mark the third and final appearance of the season by the 410 sprint cars at Selinsgrove Speedway. Wolfe won the Ray Tilley Classic on June 16 and Rico Abreau of California scored the PA Speedweek Finale on July 9.

The All Star sanction of the track’s National Open will be a first since 1991 when Mackison Jr. scored the victory over Kenny Jacobs in one of the closest finishes in sprint car racing history at the speedway.

In the 15 All Star-sanctioned sprint car races that have been held at Selinsgrove Speedway, there has never been a repeat winner. Previous All Star winners at the track include Bobbie Adamson (1970), Mike Lloyd (1973), Randy Wolfe (1982), Len Krautheim (1986), Doug Wolfgang (1987), Kenny Jacobs (1990), Frankie Kerr (1991), Cris Eash (1991), Johnny Mackison Jr. (1991), Dale Blaney (1996), Keith Kauffman (1997), Greg Hodnett (1998), Fred Rahmer (1999), Todd Shaffer (2000), and Danny Dietrich (2016).

Dietrich Stuns Port Royal Crowd And Zearfoss For Labor Day Classic Win

Gettysburg driver wins third career Classic and second in a row

Stock cars go to Eric Irvin and Eric Boozel

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

9/4/17

Port Royal – For the third year in a row, the Port Royal Speedway Labor Day Classic for sprint cars was a true classic with multiple leaders and action at the front that kept the fans guessing all the way to the finish.

In the end on Monday afternoon, it was Gettysburg’s Danny Dietrich taking his third career Labor Day checkers and second in a row in a rousing finish that even surprised Brock Zearfoss, who exited turn four thinking he was going to win the race along with the throng of fans in attendance.

The 66th annual running of the prestigious event, sponsored by Foss Jewelers of Lewistown, saw Dietrich take home $4,000 for the payday and primed him with confidence for this weekends two-day, 50th annual Tuscarora 50 races.

In the 355 econo-late model main it was Petersburg’s Eric Irvin taking the victory while Eric Boozel took the four cylinder main.

Dietrich started the 66th annual Port Royal Labor Day Classic from the 10th spot while second starter Dale Blaney took command at the start.

Blaney was leading with five laps down when the caution flag unfurled for a stopped Vince Snyder.

At that time Brock Zearfoss was hounding Blaney for the lead while Dietrich raced sixth.

The last 20 laps went non-stop in what turned into a hair raising affair with Zearfoss ducking under Blaney for control on a few occasions before finally getting the top spot with a low swoop in the first turn with 14 away.

Meanwhile, the cars of Lucas Wolfe, Dylan Cisney and Dietrich were working forward, battling between themselves for position under a blanket while gaining on the leader.

Dietrich made his presence known for sure at the front on the 18th lap when he made a bold two-car pass of both Wolfe and Blaney to blast from fifth into second.

And with that the race was on as Zearfoss worked traffic and Dietrich cut into his advantage.

Still, Zearfoss looked relatively safe at the front as he rode the cushion nearly flawlessly as the race neared its finish.

However Dietrich was like a lion stalking his prey, repeatedly swooping across the third and fourth turns to catch the cushion while trying to cut down the leader’s advantage.

And by the time the white flag unfurled, Dietrich was within striking distance but still in need of a fantastic move in order to steal the win with another final, last turns swoop in the third and fourth corners.

However Zearfoss slammed the door in turn three and thwarted what may have been Dietrich’s swoop.

And with that, Dietrich rode the cushion through the turns as Zearfoss slid up and caught the cushion off of the fourth corner in order to jet toward the finish line.

Zearfoss then shot onto the frontchute headed for the checkers and in fact was seen pumping his fist out of the cockpit as he sped toward the checkers.

And just then, a little slip by Zearfoss and a tremendous bite by Dietrich off of turn four as he turned the car down across the frontstrech stunned the fans and Zearfoss as Dietrich drove by for the payday as the cars got to the edge of the stage, just feet from the finish line.

The margin of victory for Dietrich was a scant .111 seconds.

Dietrich went to victory lane, the fans were left speechless and Zearfoss was relegated to bridesmaid.

Dylan Cisney kept his title hopes alive with just two races to go this weekend by driving his way into third at the finish although his margin in the points is now shrunk to 85 markers over Zearfoss.

Lucas Wolfe was fourth followed by Blaney.

Sixth through 10th went to Mike Wagner, Mike Walter II., Kody Lehman, Greg Hodnett and TJ Stutts.

Heats went to Wolfe, Cisney and Wagner.

Eric Irvin led all 18 laps in the econo late model main to pick up the victory by 2.421 seconds over Ryan Walls.

Irvin started sixth in the field for the victory.

Third was Shaun Miller with Tim Krape in fourth and Tim Fedder finishing fifth.

Heats went to Shaun Miller, Irvin and Tim Krape.

Eric Boozel led all 15 laps of the four cylinder main for the win over Kent Leonard, Travis Brown, Matt Worley and Justin Williamson.

FROM WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY

SEPTEMBER 3, 2017

BROCK ZEARFOSS WINS BILLY KIMMEL MEMORIAL AND BRIE HERSHEY TAKES K1 SUMMER SERIES FINALE FOR 358’S

MECHANICSBURG, PA – Brock Zearfoss’ late-summer hot streak continued Sunday night at Williams Grove Speedway as he scored the Billy Kimmel Memorial win for the Sprint cars.

He earned $3,800 for his second Grove win of the season and fifth overall since beating the Outlaws at Williams Grove in July.

Meanwhile, in the K1 Summer Series finale for the 358 Sprints, it was Brie Hershey scoring the win earning $1,500 and Chase Dietz earning the series championship.

It was the second Grove win of the season for “The Jonestown Jet” in the Aaron Long No. 58.

“We had a heck of a car tonight,” said Zearfoss. “Aaron and the boys have been working hard. We’ve been trying some stuff after the Outlaw race. Friday night we weren’t so good. Tonight, we came back with basic stuff and here we stand.”

His first Grove win came in July against the Outlaws.

“My confidence is sky high right now,” said Zearfoss. “Once you beat the best in the world, you feel like you can do anything. My crew gives me great cars week-in and week-out, I just get to drive the thing. It’s a great feeling. A few years ago, I was down in the dumps wondering if I could even do this anymore. This sport will really drag you down and it will really get you high. When you get on them highs, you have to ride them the best you can.”

Chad Trout slowed on the backstretch on the opening lap bringing out the caution flag.

Polesitter Eric Tomecek led the first lap over Matt Campbell as sixth starter Zearfoss blasted into third.

The red flag flew with two laps completed when Chris Arnold and Kody Lehman crashed in turn three. They were okay.

Tomecek controlled the restart as Zearfoss blasted around Campbell for second. Zearfoss couldn’t get to the leader as Brian Montieth passed Brandon Rahmer and then Rodney Westhafer moving into fourth.

The top three were close as they raced down the frontstretch completing lap eight.

Tomecek blew an engine coming off turn two. Zearfoss took evasive active driving inside of him. Campbell also moved to miss Zearfoss and hit the inside fence, but continued. The red flag stopped the race. Tomecek was okay.

“I was lucky enough to get below him and hold on to second at the moment and assume the lead,” said Zearfoss.

Zearfoss led the field down for the restart. Montieth went after Campbell, but couldn’t make the pass.

Zearfoss led by 1.476 seconds at the half-way point. Montieth passed Campbell with eight to go and then Rahmer did as well.

Montieth blew a tire and hit the third turn fence giving up second with six to go. Campbell pitted under caution with a flat tire giving up fourth.

Zearfoss led Rahmer and Rodney Westhafer, who was driving a Billy Kimmel tribute car No.47, for the lap 19 restart.

Rahmer tried a third turn slider on the leader following the restart. He could only get next to Zearfoss, who then pulled away over the final laps winning the Kimmel Memorial by 1.345.

“It’s a great feeling to win a memorial race,” said Zearfoss. “I didn’t get to race with Billy, but I knew of him. He was definitely one of those up and comers. It’s a shame his life got cut short, but he was doing what he loved. I can’t thank the family enough for sticking with it in the sport and doing everything that they do. It’s greatly appreciated.”

B. Rahmer’s runner-up was his best-ever Grove finish. Westhafer, 13th starter TJ Stutts and Cory Haas completed the top five. Lucas Wolfe, Danny Dietrich, Alan Krimes, point leader Freddie Rahmer and Greg Hodnett rounded out the top 10. Stutts earned a $500 Hard Charger Award from the Beerhill Gang.

Eight-lap heat races for the 22 cars in the 410 Sprints were won by Westhafer, Dietrich and Hodnett.

Shai Morris started on the pole and grabbed the lead of the 358 feature that was marred by two red flags in the first five laps. A third red flag occurred on the lap five restart in turn one involving Rich Eichelberger and TJ DeHaven. No injuries were reported.

Morris led until lap 20 when Nyle Berkes used an inside move off turn four to take the top spot. The caution flew setting up a five-lap dash to the finish.

Fifth starter Brie Hershey of Dillsburg moved to second on the restart and stalked the leader. With the white flag waving, Hershey raced to the outside of Berkes coming off turn four. She squeezed between him and the wall taking the lead.

She controlled the final lap picking up the win over Berkes, 16th starter Chase Dietz, 12th starter Doug Hammaker and 11th starter Kevin Nouse. Morris, Cody Keller, Jared Esh, Chris Frank and Chad Trout rounded out the top 10. Dietz was named the series champion.

“I tried to keep my momentum up,” said Hershey. “I knew everybody was behind me. I thought if I could keep my speed up I’d be okay. That’s the most fun race I’ve run in a while. I’m still processing it.”

Eight-lap heat races for the 28 cars in the 358 Sprints were won by Kody Hartlaub, Rich Eichelberger and Hershey. Matt Findley won the consolation.

Friday’s show will feature the make-up Butch Renninger Memorial 33 for super late models along with the conclusion of the 2017 Moon Shine Camo Late Model Challenge Series at the speedway.

The Renninger Memorial Moon Shine Camo super late model event on Friday, September 8 will now go 33-laps in distance, paying $3,300 to win and $300 to start.

Passing points from the heat races will be used to align the Renninger 33 main event.

All Renninger Memorial contingency cash and prizes including lap moneys and heat payouts that were slated for the Renninger race on September 2 will now be posted and paid out in the September 8 racing program.

And of course, the Moon Shine Camo Rt. 35 Late Model Challenge Series champion will be crowned as will the 2017 Port Royal track champion.

Currently, Mike Lupfer leads the Port Royal River Valley Builders super late point standings over Andy Haus while Coleby Frye leads the Moon Shine Camo Challenge Series points over Chad Hollenbeck and Jeff Rine.

Also on the Friday fair program will be the Night Before The 50 All Star Circuit of Champions Sprints in a 30-lap, $5,000 to win event.

The event will be the precursor to Saturday’s 50th annual Tuscarora 50 paying $50,000 to win out of a total $105,000 one-day sprint car purse.

Racing both nights begins at 7 pm with gates for the Saturday Tuscarora opening at 3 pm and Friday gates opening at 4 pm.

Saturday’s race and purse will be a never before seen type of event at Port Royal Speedway and the Juniata County fair as it offers the biggest race and purse in the oval and fair’s history.

The 50th annual Tuscarora 50 for the All Stars and Pennsylvania Posse sprints will find a star studded field of locals and national invaders vying for the prestigious laurels.

The race pays $900 just to start and will crown the 2017 Port Royal Weikert’s Livestock 410 sprint car track champion.

Lance Dewease is the defending Tuscarora 50 champion, having scored an unprecedented fifth win in the event last season.

Also on the Saturday card will be the 355-econo late models vying in the make-up Butch Renninger Memorial paying $1,333 to win.

All posted contingency cash and prizes for the original econo late Renninger Memorial on September 2 will be up for grabs.

FROM WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY

SEPTEMBER 1, 2017

GREG HODNETT SWEEPS WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY WINNING VAN MAY TRIBUTE FOR 410’S AND KRAMER WILLIAMSON MEMORIAL FOR URC AND PATRIOT 360 SPRINTS

MECHANICSBURG, PA – Greg Hodnett won the season opener at Williams Grove Speedway in March, but had been held out of 410 Sprint car victory lane since then.

Hodnett, of Spring Grove, changed that Friday night as he drove to victory in the 25-lap Van May Tribute race paying $4,069 to win. He returned to win the 360- Sprint car portion of the program as well earning $3,000.

“We came out and won the first night, but since that time it has been pretty few and far between as far as good runs,” said Hodnett. “We had a good run going at the Outlaw show and got rained out, unfortunately. It has been about a month since we’ve been here, but fortunately for us, we got a great starting spot and took advantage of it.”

Hodnett started second in Mike Heffner’s 27 and took the lead over Brian Montieth and TJ Stutts to start the 410 feature. He built a 1.654 second lead in five laps.

He reached lapped traffic with eight laps completed. Montieth began to close and Hodnett’s lead was down to under one second.

They were out of lapped traffic, but the caution flew on lap nine when Troy Fraker stopped on the backstretch.

Hodnett controlled the restart as point leader Freddie Rahmer drove by Stutts and into third. Hodnett increased his lead to over two seconds. Rahmer was racing well along the inside groove taking second from Montieth with 11 to go.

He closed quickly on Hodnett and was right there as they completed lap 19. Hodnett went low into turn three blocking Rahmer’s line as they raced around lapped cars.

“I knew he got into second and I figured he was running the middle bottom, so I decided to change lanes,” said Hodnett. “He has been really good and I figured I’d better try it. I was having a tough time getting by lapped cars off the corners up high.”

That was as close as Rahmer would get as Hodnett pulled away again over the final laps winning by 1.230 seconds over Rahmer. Montieth, Lucas Wolfe, and Stutts completed the top five. Danny Dietrich, Alan Krimes, Steve Buckwalter, Cory Haas and Matt Campbell rounded out the top 10.

Stutts set fast time over the 21-car field with a lap of 16.465. Buckwalter, Chad Trout and Krimes won the heat races.

In the Kramer Williamson Memorial for the United Racing Club and Patriot 360 Sprints, Mark Smith grabbed the lead from Trey Starks as they raced down the frontstretch to complete lap three.

The red flag stopped the race for a backstretch crash including Eddie Strada and JJ Grasso. No drivers were hurt.

On the restart, Jared Zimbardi hit the inside turn one fence and crashed hard. He was removed from the car and transported to the hospital for observation. He was talking to emergency workers.

Hodnett drove by Starks and into second on the restart. He went after Smith taking the lead in turn two the next time around.

Another caution slowed the pace on lap seven. Hodnett controlled the restart and drove away.

The caution flew with six laps to go, but Hodnett was not to be denied as he got a good restart again and led the final laps to score the win over Smith. Lucas Wolfe raced to the third over the final laps. Jason Shultz and Starks completed the top five. Steve Buckwalter, Kevin Nagy, Curt Michael, Josh Weller and Robbie Stillwaggon rounded out the top 10.

The 360 heats for the 42 cars went to JJ Grasso, Robbie Stillwaggon, Lucas Wolfe, Mark Smith and Trey Starks. Cody Keller and Adam Carberry won the B-mains.

Friday, September 1, 2017 Trail-Way Speedway Hanover, PA For Immediate Release

UPCOMING EVENTS: Fri., September 8, 2017 – 358 Sprints, 600 Micro Sprints, Street Stocks, Central PA Legends (Gates open at 5:30 p.m., Heats begin at 7:45 p.m.) Sat., September 16, 2017 – AMA Motorcycle Short Track (Gates open at 3:00 p.m., Racing begins at 6:00 p.m.)

HALLIGAN WINS TRAIL-WAY FEATURE FOR CLEAN SWEEP OF LINCOLN/TRAILWAY “SHOOTOUT”;

HANOVER, PA (9/1/2017) – Jeff Halligan won both the battle and the war at Trail-Way Speedway Friday night.

A re-draw placed Halligan on the pole for the 25-lap feature, and the Ephrata driver led every lap to score his second career win at Trail-Way. He also became the first driver in the history of the event to win both ends of the Lincoln/Trail-Way “Shootout.”

“It’s awesome to win both races,” said Halligan upon exiting the Tom Rumsey-owned Dixon Heating & Plumbing/Creekside Auto Sales #41 in victory lane, “It’s hard to win here. The track’s always the same, but some nights we’re a rocket and some nights we’re junk.”

“The lapped cars did a heck-of-a job,” said Halligan, “I was one of those cars in the past, and they were racing for position and I had to wait for the right time to get by. I love to race here.”

While Halligan dominated the event, the battle for second was torrid. Steve Owings made contact with Joe Trone, Jr. on turns one and two of the final lap as the two raced for second, with both cars spinning out. That handed second over to Mike Bittinger, who finished there. Isaac Sneeringer, who did a “360” in turn four earlier in the event, came back to finish third, with 11th-starting Dwight Leppo and 13th-starting Colt White crossing fourth and fifth.

Owings and Trone finished 10th and 11th.

Finishing second through eighth in the Lincoln/Trail-Way “Shootout” were Dalton Dietrich, Owings, Leppo, Ashley Cappetta, Cody Fletcher, Austen Treuchet, and Trone.

Brian Marriott claimed the Mason-Dixon title by picking up his second win of the year in the 270cc micro-sprint feature. He entered the event second in points behind Levi Peck, but Peck was involved in a lap nine spin with Joe Long, Jr., and was credited with a 15th-place finish, handing the championship to Marriott. Michael Boer came from 15th starting spot to cross second, with Shannon Weaver, 12th-starting Zachary Cool and Steven Cox, completing the top five.

Heats for the 19 micros were won by Marriott and Peck.

Brian Walls came from last to first to win the street stock feature and claim the 2017 track title. Travis Leh, Dalton Myers, Gene Miller, and Cory Weishaar finished second through fifth.

Heats for the 12 street stocks were won by Walls and Mike Goodwin, whose car was heavily damaged on the front stretch in the feature.

Robbie Carroll raced to his fourth win of the year in the 15-lap limited stock feature. Carroll started ninth and took the lead from race long leader Cody Klinedinst on lap five. He led the rest of the way, with 10th-starting Terry Hartlaub second and Klinedinst third.

With his fourth-place finish, Jason Chronister claimed his first-ever track championship. Jeff Foster rounded out the top five.

Heats for the 26 limited stocks were won by Foster, Kyle Rohrbaugh, and Hartlaub.

Next Friday, September 8, Trail-Way returns with the final appearance in 2017 for the Hoosier Tire Mid Atlantic 358 Sprint Cars. The 600 Micro Sprints, Street Stocks and Central PA Legends will also be in action. This will be the final point race for those Trail-Way divisions. Gates open at 5:30 p.m., with heats scheduled to begin at 7:45 p.m.

SHOCK & AWE FROM BRIAN MONTIETH IN NON-STOP 410 FEATURE AT TRAIL-WAY; Brad Weber holds off Tyler Walton in 600cc micro-spints

HANOVER, PA (8/27/2017) – Phoenixville’s Brian Montieth took home all the marbles in Sunday night’s Second Annual Armin Hostetter Memorial for 410 sprint cars at Trail-Way Speedway.

In addition to claiming the $3,500 top prize, Montieth also won the Beer Hill Gang’s $350 bonus as the event’s hard charger and the $1,000 bonus for winning the Lincoln/Susquehanna/Trail-Way tri-track “Shootout” for 410 sprint cars, a total of $4,850 in prize money for the night.

“I didn’t see this place ‘til a little while ago,” said Montieth upon exiting the Jerry Parrish owned Premier Auto Works/Auto Locator/Beer Hill Gang #21 in victory lane, “and it’s a racey little place.”

It was Montieth’s second-ever run at Trail-Way, finishing one position better than his runner-up finish to Brent Marks last year.

Young upstart Landon Myers of York drew the pole for the 29-lap event run in memory of the late Bob Weikert, and led the first eight laps before third-starting Danny Dietrich took the lead on lap nine. Montieth, who started sixth, drove under Myers for second on lap ten and quickly closed on Dietrich as they raced through heavy lapped traffic.

Montieth then drove around both a lapped car and low-riding Dietrich to take the lead in turns three and four of lap 13, and led the rest of the way for his first career Trail-Way win.

“It’s a lot of fun here, and it’s easy to drive when the car is right,” said Montieth, “It’s a lot of fun here.”

Dietrich settled for second, with Lucas Wolfe third, Myers holding on for fourth, and Dwayne Gutshall fifth. They were the only five cars on lead lap at the end of the non-stop event.

Sixth through tenth were Cory Haas, Zach Euculano, Gerard McIntyre, Jr., Dwight Leppo, and Glenndon Forsythe.

The entire night was caution-free for the super sprints, with McIntyre, Forsythe, and Dietrich winning the qualifying events for the 19 cars in attendance. McIntyre’s heat win established a new 10-lap track record of 2 minutes, 17.75 seconds, breaking the old track record held by Fred Rahmer (2:18.96). Two of the three heats were faster than the previous track record.

With the win, Montieth also claimed the Lincoln/Susquehanna/Trail-Way tri-track “Shootout,” with Cory Haas, Glenndon Forsythe, and Kyle Moody finishing second through fourth in the three-track series.

Bradley Weber withstood heavy late-race pressure from Tyler Walton to win the 20-lap 600cc micro-sprint feature. Garrett Bard, Kameron Morral and Zane Rudisill completed the top five.

Weber started sixth and grabbed the lead from polesitter and race-long leader Jim Radney on lap six and led the rest of the way. Walton moved into second when Radney dropped from the field on lap eight, and pulled onto Weber’s back bumper when the caution flew for Darren Kauffman, who came to a stop with two laps to go.

The two were side-by-side as they raced under the white flag, but Weber was able to hold Walton off over the final lap for the two-carlength win.

Heat winners for the 18 micros were Walton and Jesse Snyder.

The Port Royal Speedway Tuscarora 50

 

 

Saturday, Sept. 21, 1968: The original Mr. Excitement, Mitch Smith of Linglestown scored the inaugural running of the Tuscarora 50 in an outstanding performance aboard the Garys Auto Wreckers No. 5. The race required one restart on the 39th lap for Sam Yoder.  Johnny Grum, who finished second, started closing the gap Smith had built on the 30th lap and was on Smiths bumper when the caution appeared.  Grum had the lead coming up the frontstetch on the restart but Smith got through the first turn and held the lead the rest of the way.  Yoder had led from the drop of the green until John Ebersole took over on lap four. Then Junior Ritchey took over on lap six and held sway until Smith powered to the head of the field.  Heats went to Lynn Paxton, Jim Kennedy and Smith with Ritchey taking the consolation.

Saturday, Oct. 3, 1969: Delayed by rain from Sept. 27, Mitch Smith roared to his second consecutive Tuscarora title in the second running of the race.  Smith took $1,000 for the win with Elmer Ruby taking home $800 for second and Steve Ungar scoring $600 for third.   Jim Kennedy had the lead at the end of the first lap and would hold it for ten until his car went sour and Smith took over. Kennedy had set a new one-lap track record of 22.05 seconds before dropping out.  Smith then broke the record three more times before the checkers to record a 21.57, breaking the 22-second mark for the first time in oval history.  Heats went to Dan Miller, Kennedy and Ruby with Tommie Spriggle taking the consolation in a new 10-lap record time of 3:45.15.


Friday, Sept. 11, 1970: Mitch Smith went three-for-three in the Tuscarora 50 in 1970, yet again aboard the Garys Auto Wreckers No. 5 owned by Gary Wasson.  Smith took the 50 after also winning the Labor Day Classic a few days earlier. The $1,000 50 victory was Smiths 32nd career win at Port Royal where he also won the 1970 season lidlifter. It turned into a big weekend for The Linglestown Leadfoot, as Smith towed to Selinsgrove Speedway the next night and romped to a win in the Selinsgrove 70, worth $1,095. 

Saturday, Sept. 11, 1971: Smokey Snellbaker blew the engine in his regular sprint, the Roy Morral 880, climbed into the Al Hamilton 77, and drove like he owned it and won the fourth annual Tuscarora 50 to give Hamilton his first event victory of what would end up being five in his illustrious ownership career.  Snellbaker pocketed $1,000 for the win. It was a big night for car owner Hamilton as his other driver, Billy Cassella, finished second and it was the first time that Hamiltons cars ever finished one-two in a race. Track champion Elmer Ruby blew his engine while running second and Johnny Grum went out with front-end troubles.  Lynn Paxton was without a ride. Heats went to Paul Ober, Jim Kennedy and Snellbaker with Barry Camp taking the consolation. 


Friday, Sept. 8, 1972: Lynn Paxton of Mechanicsburg captured the 1972 Tuscarora 50 aboard the Emrich Chevrolet No. 1, pocketing $1,200 for the checkers.  Johnny Grum led throughout most of the event and at times had a full straightaway spread over Paxton but Grum seemed to have trouble getting through lapped cars and Paxton kept closing the gap. On the 37th tour Paxton took over for the win. Heats went to Bobby Allen, Rick Ferkle and Jan Opperman.  Smokey Snellbaker won the consolation and set a new eight-lap track record of three minutes flat.  Officials estimated event attendance at 15,000.

Friday, Sept. 7, 1973: Midwest transplant Kenny Weld scored his second career Port Royal victory in the 1973 Tuscarora, giving No. 29 car owner Bob Weikert his first of what would end up being five total checkers in the event.  Weld won the 50 just a few days after claiming the annual Labor Day Classic, which was his first career win at Port Royal in his 17th recorded oval start.  Reports had Weld winning the 50 after another exciting battle with an all-star field.  The caution was out only once during the 50-lap event, on the 18th loop.  Jimmy Boyd and Weld took heats with Jim Edwards winning the consolation.  Weld set a new one-lap track record in his heat with a time of 20.82 seconds. 

 
Saturday, Sept. 7, 1974: Again in the Emrich No. 1, Lynn Paxton won the seventh running of the Tuscarora for his second oval win of the year in the season-ending event after also winning the season opener. The exciting 50-lap event saw Van May take the lead at the start and hold it for the first seven laps when Bobby Weaver flipped in the first turn.  On the restart Rick Schmelyun grabbed the lead and held it until the 19th lap when track champion Smokey Snellbaker took over. Snellbaker led until the 37th lap when his rear end went out.  Meanwhile, Paxton, who had went to the rear after pitting under caution on lap 14, had worked his way back up to second and took over the lead. Heats went to Paul Pitzer, Paxton and Jimmy Boyd with Dub May winning the consolation.

 

Friday, Sept. 12, 1975: Aboard the O.J. Myers No. 19, Steve Smith Sr. of New Oxford made his first-ever win at Port Royal Speedway a big one by scoring the 1975 Tuscarora 50 worth $1,200.  Buck Buckly led the first 15 laps from the pole before pulling pitside, handing the lead over to three-time 50 winner Mitch Smith.  Smith led for the next 10 circuits until a sour motor sidelined him, giving Lincoln Speedway powerhouse Steve Smith control all the way to the finish.  Although never credited with leading a lap, Smokey Snellbaker actually got the lead twice in the race.  Snellbaker first took the lead when he blew under Buckly for the lead on the 14th lap only to blow a tire and tag to the rear for a restart.  Snellbaker then motored back to the front and moved into the lead around Smith with 23 laps to go but couldnt hold the line.  After a side-by-side race with Smith for several laps, Snellbaker pitted with 11 to go with a broken radius rod.  Heats went to Keith Kauffman and Jim Sheaffer with Jimmy Nace winning the consolation.  The original race date of Sept. 5 was rained out.  


Friday, Sept. 10, 1976: McAlisterville driver Jim Nace scored the bicentennial Tuscarora 50 edition aboard his No. 44.  Nace watched as Lynn Paxton and Jay Myers, the two top ranked Port Royal drivers during the season, both got knocked out, and then he took the lead with 19 laps left. Paxton the point champion was knocked out before the first lap was completed as a spectacular crack-up in the first turn took out four cars including Paxton, Gary Howsare, Chris Crisswell and Dave Reigle.  Then Myers became the new favorite from the ninth starting spot and when green reappeared he shot into third where he stayed until lap 25 when he made his move and began pulling away from Barry Camp, the leader of the first 24 laps. Myers had a commanding lead by lap 27 but soon withdrew under caution on lap 28 with a broken rear end. Camp inherited the lead back and built a sizeable margin but Nace, now up to second, found the door open on lap 32 and squeezed past Camp coming off the second turn to pull away.  Only six cars completed the entire 50 laps of the race and only eight were running at the finish.  The win was Naces first ever in his own car.  

Saturday, Sept. 17, 1977: Again delayed a week by rain, Tuscarora 50 laurels went to Everetts Gary Howsare in 1977.  Howsare was at the wheel of the Boops Aluminum Special No. 1 machine during what car owner Maynard Boop dubbed the Boops Rent-A-Racer season due to having no long-term, fixed driver for the year.  Howsare claimed the 50-lap special by out-dueling Steve Smith in the late stages.  The early leader, Howsare surrendered the number one spot to Mitch Smith on the 17th lap but regained it eight laps later and then stayed in front the rest of the way.  Heats for 43 cars went to Jay Myers, Howsare and Mitch Smith with Jim Sheaffer taking the consolation. 

Friday, Sept. 8, 1978: The driver who would become the all-time track favorite and winningest driver, Keith Kauffman of Mifflintown won the 78 Tuscarora in what was an odyssey voyage for his first event victory. Battling his way from the rear of the pack, Kauffman caught Steve Smith in the final turn on the final lap to claim the checkers.  During warm-ups, Kauffman found his machine spewing oil so he returned the car to his shop and changed engines only to return to the track with heats finished and just the consolation race remaining before the 50.  An initial consolation red flag gave Kauffman enough time to get into the pits and unload and tag the consy field in which he raced up to second for a spot in the 50.  Bill Stevick led the first lap of the main before Smokey Snellbaker took over before blowing his engine on lap 22.  That pushed Steve Smith into the lead but with five laps to go Smith began struggling with lapped cars and Kauffman rode his tail before using the high line to steal the win in the final turn.  A field of 35 cars competed.

 

Friday, Sept. 7, 1979: Veteran Smokey Snellbaker took his second career 50 in 1979 from the eighth starting spot aboard the Lloyd No. 56.  Tom Bryner led the first two laps of the race from the pole before a restart saw Keith Kauffman take over.  Snellbaker chased Kauffman from the third lap until the 14th lap when he slid into the lead as the cars came around for lap 15.  Lynn Paxton began to challenge for the win on the second restart of the race on the 18th lap through lap 31 when he suddenly pitted.  The race went non-stop from lap 33 to the finish.  The race marked the end of a quarter-century run by Leroy Felty who for the first time in 26 years went through an entire season without competing in any feature at Port Royal Speedway. 

Friday, Sept. 5, 1980: A crowd estimated at over 10,000 people saw Lynn Paxton of York Springs win the 13th annual 50, his career third and final in the event, coming aboard the Boops No. 1. Paxton took command of the race after early leader Randy Wolfe blew a tire while leading.  Paxtons winning margin was about 20 lengths over Keith Kauffman. Kauffman blew a tire mid-race and had to come back from the rear.

Friday, Sept. 11, 1981: George Ferguson Jr. of Fort Washington scored his first ever sprint car win by becoming the ninth different winner of the Tuscarora 50, beating a field of 37 sprint cars.  Aboard the Ferguson No. 52, Ferguson saw early leaders fall out of the event.  Steve Siegel, the early leader, brought out the caution flag on lap eight with a broken driveline.  Smokey Snellbaker then inherited the lead for laps nine through 36 with Ferguson and Billy Stief close behind.  On lap 36 Snellbaker got a flat tire, causing another yellow flag and handing the lead to Ferguson.  On the restart Stief passed Ferguson for the win and led laps 37 to 42 before retiring with engine woes. A final yellow with two laps to go found Ferguson unheeded for the victory. 

 

Friday, Sept. 10, 1982: One of the original outlaws, Hanovers Bobby Allen dropped off of the outlaws trail, invaded and walked off with the 1982 Tuscarora crown to pick up his 18th overall win of the season while it was the first of his career at Port Royal.  Allen passed 1982 track champion Randy Wolfe on the 42nd lap to get the win.  Van May led the first 16 laps while Wolfe headed the pack from laps 17 to 41. Allen started 19th and motored into second at the halfway point.  Allen then dropped back to third before retaking second with 14 laps to go before moving in on Wolfe for the victory.  Allen was credited with a new 25-lap track record after running the final 25 non-stop in a time of 8:22.56. Heats went to May and Wolfe.

Friday, Sept. 9, 1983: Dave Blaney of Hartford, Ohio, made his third Port Royal appearance of the 1983 season a profitable one by claiming the Tuscarora 50.  Blaney inherited the lead from Bobby Davis on the 36th lap when Davis car caught fire while under caution. At the lap 25 mandatory break in the action, 15th starter Blaney had Davis leading with Bobby Allen in second and Keith Kauffman in third.  Kauffman dropped out with engine woes on lap 32 and Allen went to the rear after replacing a flat tire on lap 35.  Heats went to Davis, Kauffman and Lynn Paxton.  The start of the racing program was delayed to allow a large crowd time to enter the speedway. 


Friday, Sept. 7, 1984: South Dakotas Doug Wolfgang won his first Tuscarora 50 of what would be four in a row in 1984 at the wheel of the Weikerts Livestock No. 29 machine.  Wolfgang inherited the lead and $4,000 win from Van May on the 31st lap when May pitted with a flat tire.  Jim Nace took home $3,000 for second place. The race was red flagged on the initial start for a Keith Kauffman frontstretch accident.  Kauffman climbed Paul Lotiers wheel sending his Hamilton machine out of control and into the wall.  The last place car came onto the scene seconds later and broadsided Kauffman who was waving his arms trying to get the car to stop before the collision.  The impact sent Kauffmans car some 60 feet sideways.  Then Billy Howard flipped in the first turn after hitting Randy Wolfe while trying to avoid Kauffman. Heats went to Lotier, Maynard Yingst and Dave Wickham.


Friday, Sept. 6, 1985: In the midst of an unprecedented season at the wheel of the Weikert No. 29, Doug Wolfgang won his second 50 in a row in 1985, taking over $4,000 for the win that was his 44th overall on the season.  Wolfgang passed Jim Nace off of the second turn to take the lead and win on the 15th lap. The race was marred by a terrible accident on the 26th lap that injured drivers Van May, Kenny Smith and flagman Bob Hockenberry.  When Smith lost power on the frontstretch, may climbed his rear wheel and nearly flipped onto the stage before vaulting into the starters stand, destroying it and knocking Hockenberry to the ground while continuing to flip toward the first turn. After being cut from the car, May was airlifted to a hospital. In trying to avoid Mays flipping sprinter, the cars of Keith Kauffman and Smokey Snellbaker were destroyed as they flipped into turn one with the fuel cell of Smith being impacted and bursting into flames. Also enveloped in the fire were Joey Gravino and Jerry Stone.  Heats went to Randy Wolfe, Kauffman and May with Snellbaker claiming the consolation.

Friday, Sept. 5, 1986: Doug Wolfgang took the lead from Cris Eash on the ninth lap going down the backchute and then held off Dave Kelly mid-race to easily claim his third 50 in a row for Bob Weikert, worth $7,785. Jerry Stone overtook Maynard Yingst for third on the final lap.  Heats were won by Keith Kauffman, Wolfgang and Darren Eash with Gary Gollub taking the consolation. 

Friday, Sept. 25, 1987: Doug Wolfgang surged from the eighth restarting spot at the mandatory lap 25 restart to get his record-setting fourth Tuscarora 50 in a row in 1986 while also scoring an unprecedented fifth event win for car owner Bob Weikert. During the lap 25 stoppage for refueling, Wolfgang changed gears, tires and torsion bars on his car, allowing it to hook up to the smooth track. Todd Shaffer led the first six laps before Bobby Weaver drove by in lapped traffic.  Shaffer retook command from Weaver with a daring inside move in traffic on the 23rd circuit.  Wolfgang got by Paul Lotier for fourth on lap 35 and Dave Kelly for third a lap later.  With 37 laps down, leader Shaffer spun to bring out the yellow flag and Joey Allen moved from fifth to third on the restart and then closed in on Wolfgang and new leader Weaver. With 10 laps to go, Allen drove by Wolfgang and then took the lead from Weaver with eight laps to go.  A lap later, Weaver broke a spindle, forcing a caution and Wolfgang used the restart to get around Allen before Allen lost his motor while racing close for the win on the 45th tour.  Wolfgang pocketed over $6,000 for his night of work that included another victory on the night, in the Miller Winners Classic.

 

Friday, Sept. 9, 1988: Some 13 years after his father took a Tuscarora 50 win, Stevie Smith of New Oxford scored in 1988 to etch the first and only father/son winners in 50 record books. Aboard the Creasy Signs No. 19, Smith was billed as an easy winner in a race that took place before the largest crowd in speedway history.  Smith took the lead on the fourth lap from Fred Rahmer and pocketed $12,000 in cash for the triumph.  After getting the lead, Smith ran away with it, lapping up to eighth place by the finish.  His pace was halted for a flip by Ricky Hood aboard the Weikert sprinter when Hood flipped over the first turn fence after climbing the wheel of Bobby Landis.  Track big guns Keith Kauffman and Paul Lotier failed to qualify for the event.  Heats for 48 cars went to Frankie Kerr, Dave Kelly, Allen Ruth and Landis with consolations going to Roger Fickett and Lance Dewease.  Smith also won the Miller Beer Dash later in the night from 14th starting spot for another $2,000 and then scored at Lincoln Speedway a night later to pocket another 10K. 


Friday, Sept. 8, 1989: Bobby Allen won the second 50 of his career in the 22nd running of the event, inheriting the lead and win on the final lap when Doug Wolfgang coasted to a stop with a blown motor.  Tim Dietz led laps one through 19 before being passed by 1989 track champion Dave Kelly. Dietz and Kelly raced side by side for 10 laps before Kelly finally got the lead.  Kelly held sway until lap 31 when Wolfgang used the high groove to pass him on a restart caused by Dietzs stopped machine.  Once in front, Wolfgang built a big lead with Allen passing Kelly for second with nine laps to go but failing to close on the leader.  Heats went to Bobby Landis, Bobby Weaver, Dietz and Kelly with Lance Dewease winning the consolation.


Friday, Sept. 7, 1990: An emerging Todd Shaffer of Millerstown struck for his first Tuscarora win in 1989 in an event delayed four hours by rain. The victory was the biggest in Shaffers young career to date. The pilot started fourth in the main and passed Tim Dietz going into the first turn on the ninth lap for the lead.  Shaffer pulled away from the field until a lap 15 flip by Bobby Strawser caused a red flag.  Shaffer opened up a half-lap lead after the restart, before the mandatory lap 25 stoppage.  The second half of the race saw very little passing although second runner Dave Kelly was able to close on Shaffer between laps 40 and 45 in traffic before a caution for a stopped Lance Dewease cleared the way.  Heats went to Shaffer, Kelly, Dan Dietrich and Strawser with Paul Lotier and Judd Shepard claiming the consolations.  


Friday, Sept. 6, 1991: Again aboard his familiar Turnbaugh No. 11, Todd Shaffer made it back to back 50 wins in 1991 with the victory being his 21st overall of the season.  Shaffer started sixth and moved into third at the halfway point of the first segment before taking the lead with 18 laps to go.  His margin of victory was 15 car lengths and was worth over $8,200, capping off a week in which the car earned over $20,000.  Barry Camp was a flip victim in the feature with three laps to go. 


Friday, Sept. 11, 1992: Len Krautheim III., of Penns Creek, scored one for the Selinsgrove Speedway fans in the Silver Anniversary Tuscarora as the Selinsgrove oval 92 track champion invaded Port Royal and walked away with the $7,500 loot from the pole, leading all 50 laps.   Numerous caution and red flag periods hampered the race including for flips by Bobby Weaver, Bobby Strawser and Billy Crawford and for a nine-car pileup with 16 laps to go. Aboard the Steve Kemble, KNK Motorsports No. 3K, Krautheim outran another Selinsgrove regular, Chuck Reinert, for the win although Reinert was quickly tracking him down on the high side at the finish before running out of laps.  Interestingly, Krautheims mechanic Rob Peters discovered under a red flag period that his car had lost its right front torsion bar and arm and under another red flag, Peters discovered that the motor had lost its lower radiator hose.  Both times, Peters was able to mend the issues, allowing Krautheim to preserve the win.  Heats went to Lance Dewease, Keith Kauffman, Bobby Strawser and Krautheim with consolations going to Glen Fitzcharles and Troy Camp.

 

Friday, Sept. 10, 1993: Alan Cole led the first five laps of the 1993 50 before track champion Lance Dewease took the lead in the Dyer No. 461.  Dewease checked out on the field during the mid-stages but following a lap 33 restart, No. 69K Don Kreitz Jr. raced with Fred Rahmer for second before securing the spot with nine laps to go.  Kreitz then quickly closed in on Dewease and took the lead with a fourth turn pass on lap 43 before pulling away to his first-ever Tuscarora 50 checkers.  Heats for 43 cars went to Todd Shaffer, Keith Kauffman, Dewease and Dan Dietrich with twin consolations going to Bill Brian Jr. and Jim Nace.

 

Friday, Sept. 9, 1994: A year after nearly getting his first-ever win in the 50, Lance Dewease put it all together for that elusive first 50 triumph in 1994 aboard the Walt Dyer No. 461.  The Waynesboro driver took the lead on the 14th circuit from Todd Gracey and then held off Fred Rahmer in the middle of the race and Billy Pauch near the end.  Heats for 35 cars went to Dan Dietrich, Craig Eshenaur and Dewease with Todd Shaffer taking the consolation race. 

                               

Friday, Sept. 8, 1995: Millerstowns Todd Shaffer led all 50 laps in a romp to record his third event victory in the 1995 installment of the 50, aboard the Beam No. 88 sprinter.  Shaffer had three lapped cars separating himself from Fred Rahmer on a restart with five laps to go, taking the edge off of any potential final lap moves for a late upset.  Heats for 39 cars went to Mark Richard, Len Krautheim III., Shaffer and Craig Eshenaur.  Twin consolations went to Alan Cole and Tim Kuhn. 

 

Friday, Sept. 20, 1996: After leading the first 25 laps and appearing headed to his second Tuscarora win, Lance Dewease came up lame with a flat rear tire and surrendered the lead at the halfway break to Salfordvilles Fred Rahmer aboard the Hamilton No. 77.  Todd Shaffer came to second during the last 15 laps but failed to steal the win as Rahmer went on to seal up his first-ever 50 triumph with three more to come in his career.  Heats for 41 cars went to Shaffer, Mike Wagner, Alan Cole and Kevin Gobrecht with consolations going to Jeff Thompson and Will Cramer.  

 

Friday, Sept. 5, 1997: No. 69K Don Kreitz Jr. led the race early from the second starting spot as invader Dale Blaney in the Hughes Wheel & Axle No. 94 raced in second and got around Kreitz during the second half only to see Kreitz reclaim the point.  Aboard the Hamilton Motorsports No. 77, Salfordvilles Fred Rahmer, who started 12th in the field, got around Kreitz for the lead during the last six circuits for his second victory in a row in the prestigious event.  Heats for 38 cars went to Todd Shaffer, Lance Dewease, Kreitz and Cris Eash with twin consolations going to Dave Ely and Jeff Rohrbaugh.

 

Saturday, Sept. 12, 1998: Carrying a sanction for the first time in its 31-year history and expanded to a two-day show for the first time ever as well, the 1998 Tuscarora 50 would belong to Memphis, Tennessee, pilot Greg Hodnett aboard the Apple Chevrolet, Bob Stewart-owned No. 12.  Making his first starts ever as a Pennsylvania regular in the races sanctioned by the All Star Circuit of Champions Sprints, Hodnett took the lead from Fred Rahmer on lap 13 of 30 on Friday night, taking the $4,000 victory by a half lap.  In Saturday nights 50, Lance Dewease led the first 41 circuits with Kenny Jacobs and Hodnett lurking before Hodnett took over and Dewease blew a tire shortly after. The $10,000 event win was the first of Hodnetts career.   Some 42 cars were in action for the 50 with Jeff Shepard setting quick time with a lap of 16.554 seconds.  Heats went to Cris Eash, Johnny Mackison Jr., Dean Jacobs and Hodnett with James Chesson taking the B Main. 

 

Saturday, Sept. 11, 1999: Aboard his No. 69K, Don Kreitz Jr. of Sinking Spring started second in the race and destroyed a stellar field of sprints, taking his second career Tuscarora 50, worth more than $10,000.  A total of 42 cars were in action in a race sanctioned by the All Star Circuit of Champions Sprints with Joey Saldana setting fast time in qualifications with a lap of 16.353 seconds.  Heat races went to Shawn Keen, Johnny Mackison Jr., Greg Hodnett and Jeff Shepard with Paul McMahan taking the B Main.  A second sprint car main staged following the 50 highlighted the night as the make-up Labor Day Classic was spun off after rain postponed it earlier in the week.  Jeff Shepard took that victory with Kreitz finishing second.  The Friday night 50 preliminary was scored by No. 77E Dave Ely in what was his first-ever win in a sprint car anywhere with 43 cars in action. 

 

Saturday, Sept. 9, 2000: Fred Rahmer took his third victory in the Tuscarora 50 in 2000, taking home $10,000 for the win while leading 39 laps of the contest that was back to being an unsanctioned event.  Amid lapped traffic, Lance Dewease scooted by Rahmer for the lead on the seventh tour but found Rahmer wrestling to regain command, which he took on the 18th lap.  A volley of flat tires with 20 laps to go sidelined the likes of second runner Dewease and third runner Jeff Shepard along with Mark Richard and Keith Kauffman, placing Todd Shaffer in second and although Shaffer gave it a run during the final stages, Rahmer streaked under the checkers for the win.  Heats for the 32-car field went to Cris Eash, Mark Richard, Brian Gobrecht and Kauffman with Tim Kuhn scoring the consolation race.  Lance Dewease won the Friday preliminary race in what would be his first of two in a row.  The win was also the first of four career in the precursor for car owner Joe Harz. 

 

Saturday, Sept. 8, 2001: Lance Dewease took home over $12,000 for his second 50 win in 2001, aboard the Joe Harz No. 88H and pulled off the same feat as Greg Hodnett did in 1998 by sweeping both Tuscarora races, on Friday and Saturday night.  In the Saturday 50, Dewease led early from the pole before Todd Shaffer used a lap 16 restart to motor by for control but Dewease then came back and drove by Shaffer on the backstretch with 11 laps to go after getting a great run off of the top-side of the second turn.  Heats for the 34-car field were taken by Keith Kauffman, Greg Hodnett, Don Kreitz Jr. and Fred Rahmer with Alan Cole scoring the consolation race.  Dewease took the lead late from a faltering Todd Hestor to pick up the Friday win.

 

Saturday, Sept. 7, 2002: Six-time track champion Lance Dewease of Fayetteville took his third career win in Port Royals most illustrious race in 2002, and for as many different car owners to boot.  Aboard the Hamilton No. 77, Dewease bided his time early and then began moving forward near the halfway point.  Meanwhile, early leader Sean Michael and challenger Fred Rahmer staged a spirited duel for control during the first 25 laps with Rahmer at the halfway helm and Dewease restarting second. Dewease squeezed between the inside rail and Rahmer to take the lead with 22 laps to go.  The win for car owner Al Hamilton gave him a total of five in the event, tying him with Bob Weikert at the top of the all-time event win list for car owners.  Heats for 32 cars went to Mark Smith, Michael, Todd Hestor and Rahmer with Kevin Frey taking the consolation. Don Kreitz Jr. led the first several laps of the Friday preliminary night before Greg Hodnett took over for the win.  

 

Saturday, Sept. 6, 2003: With the race well in hand and threatening to sweep the weekend for the second time in six years, leader Greg Hodnett came up with a souring motor with 13 laps to go in the 50 and nursed his car and engine all the way to lap 48 when it finally quit spewing white smoke and he handed the lead over to 53-year old veteran Keith Kauffman aboard the Middleswarth No. 7.  Kauffman then took the win, his second in the event and first in the race since 1978, pocketing $10,000 after moving into the second spot with nine laps completed.  Heats for a 40-car field went to Mike Walter, Fred Rahmer, Stevie Smith and Lynton Jeffrey with Don Kreitz Jr. taking the last chance race.  Hodnett took the lead from Todd Shaffer to win on Friday night.

 

Saturday, Sept. 11, 2004: Now a Central Pa regular for several years since his first 50 win in 1998, Greg Hodnett returned for a second event victory in 2004 aboard the Bob Stewart, Apple Motorsports No. 12.  Hodnett started 12th in the field and drove by Don Kreitz Jr. for second on a lap 12 restart before dusting off early leader Todd Shaffer on lap 14 to take control.  Mark Smith came to second with 33 laps to go but failed to challenge for the win.  Heats for 33 cars went to Hodnett, Rick Lafferty, Kreitz and Darren Eash.  Craig Keel won the consolation race.  Fred Rahmer took his first of two consecutive wins in the preliminary race on Friday night.   

 

Saturday, Sept. 10, 2005: Fred Rahmer became the third driver to complete a sweep of the Tuscarora weekend races when he pulled off the feat in 2005.  On Friday the Salfordville speedster started 11th and was up to fourth by lap five before taking control from Chad Layton.  In Saturdays 50 itself, Rahmer started on the pole in the seat of the Harz No. 88H and led all 50 laps for the $10,000 victory, cruising through traffic during the final non-stop 25 laps to record his fourth win in the prestigious event and his last while joining Doug Wolfgang in history as just the second driver ever to win four Tuscaroras.  Heats for the 36-car field went to Craig Keel, Lucas Wolfe, Justin Collett and TJ Stutts with twin consolations going to Mike Wagner and Lance Dewease.

 

Saturday, Sept. 9, 2006: Seven-time 2006 oval winner Mark Smith led by a straightaway early in the 50 over Fred Rahmer but third starter Lance Dewease was lurking aboard the Postupack No. 25.  He moved into second, getting around Fred Rahmer on lap 14 and then mixed it up with Smith and challenger Doug Esh from laps 35  41 as the trio exchanged the front spots at will with Dewease first being scored the leader on lap 40.  Esh took second with five to go and challenged for the win but Dewease ended up winning his fourth career Tuscarora 50 for his fourth different car owner, worth $10,000.  Heats for the 35-car field went to Todd Shaffer, Dewease, Mark Coldren and Alan Cole with Kenny Jacobs scoring the consolation.  Keith Kauffman led every lap to win Fridays feature event. 

 

Saturday, Sept. 8, 2007: Lincoln Speedway invader Doug Esh would pick up his first of two career Tuscarora triumphs in 2007 aboard the Leach No. 30.  Esh of Lancaster started third in the field and followed early leader Sean Michael before pulling the trigger on the seventh lap.  Aboard the Brian Golden No. 12, Kevin Nouse followed Esh and took second spot a lap later but gave way to Keith Kauffman for the spot during the final three laps.  Esh took $11,000 for the victory, which was also his first career checkers at the oval. Todd Shaffer took his first of two in a row in the event in the Friday night preliminary.

 

Sunday, Sept. 7, 2008: After a Saturday rain out, the Sunday make-up date found Elizabethvilles Mike Erdley scoring the big victory in the 50, worth over $10,700.  Aboard the Lisi No. 11, Erdley trailed polesitter Brian Leppo for the first 20 laps before biting fast to the bottom groove off of the second turn to drive by for the lead.  After taking the lead, Erdley had to hold off a charging Greg Hodnett who was going for his third career 50 win.  Heats for 34 cars went to Blane Heimbach, Dave Hahn, Cliff Brian and Brian Montieth with Chad Layton taking the consolation race.  Erdley had a pair of good runs on the weekend, finishing second on Friday to preliminary winner Todd Shaffer. 

 

Saturday, Sept. 12, 2009: Aboard the Kline No. 22, Greg Hodnett won his third career Tuscarora 50 in a flag to flag performance from the pole of the event.  The Thomasville speedster took home $12,750 for the win.  Third starter Daryn Pittman came to second early and trailed Hodnett as he entered traffic on the ninth loop.  Pittman and Stevie Smith battled for second as the race waned, swapping the spot a few times before Smith took it for good with six laps to go.  Heats for 42 cars went to Keith Kauffman, Pittman, Hodnett and Todd Shaffer.  Twin consolations went to Kerry Madsen and Dave Ely.  The Friday night preliminary race was rained out. 

 

Saturday, Sept. 11, 2010: Lincoln Speedway track champion Brian Montieth of Phoenixville won the 2010 version of the 50 after swapping the lead for several laps mid-race with 21st starter Fred Rahmer.  Aboard the Parrish No. 21, Montieth started on the pole and led until lap 26 when Rahmer took over but Montieth then used the top lane to track down Rahmer in a rousing run to go back out front on lap 32 for his first ever Port Royal win.  A close three-car race for second that wasnt far behind the leader was destroyed on the 11th lap when the second, third and fourth place cars of Lance Dewease, Stevie Smith and Greg Hodnett crashed out.  Heats went to Rick Lafferty, Danny Dietrich, Mike Erdley and Greg Hodnett with Rahmer taking the consolation race.  Stevie Smith drove the Zemco No. 1 to his first of three career wins in the preliminary race on Friday night.

 

Saturday, Sept. 10, 2011: Stevie Smith of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, scored his second career Tuscarora 50 in the 44th annual running of the event with a flag to flag run aboard the Zemco No. 1 in 2011.  Smith scored a clean sweep of the night by winning his heat race, worth $300, the dash, worth $100 and the feature worth, $11,000 and adding lap money on top of that, Smith had earned nearly $13,000 by the end of the night.  Justin Henderson chased Smith for the first 46 laps before a surging Danny Dietrich blasted into second before running down Smith only to run out of laps in an effort to get the victory.  Heats for a 45-car field went to Smith, Todd Shaffer, TJ Winegardner, Mike Wagner and Doug Esh.  Brent Marks took the B Main.  The Friday preliminary was rained out thanks to a relentless monsoon-like thunderstorm during the event. 

 

Saturday, Sept. 8, 2012: With the All Stars again sanctioning the big event, Lancasters Doug Esh struck for second blood in the 2012 50, staging a come-from-behind victory aboard the Leach No. 30 to pocket $11,450 for the win.  Trying to claim his first ever 50, Mike Wagner stretched out a big lead early while Brent Marks raced into second.  In traffic, Marks tracked down Wagner and took the lead with 18 completed.  Meanwhile, a fierce battle between the surging cars of Danny Dietrich and Lance Dewease ended in disaster when contact sent them into the outside first turn wall on the 24th lap while vying for sixth.  On the restart, Esh began blasting forward, making a two car pass using the ragged outside edge with 22 to go and he used that edge to take third a lap later.  Esh finally ran down Mike Erdley for second with 18 laps left and then on lap 35 he went out front for the win.  Heats for the 40-car field went to Keith Kauffman, Cap Henry, Erdley and Dewease with Blane Heimbach scoring the B Main.  Quick time was set by Daryn Pittman with a lap of 17.343.  In the Friday, Night Before The 50 race, Ohios Dale Blaney became the first bona-fide card-carrying All Star to ever win an All Stars event at the track since the series first visited the oval in 1981.   

 

Saturday, Sept. 7, 2013: A field of 40 All Stars and Pennsylvania sprint cars contested the 46th annual Tuscarora 50 with Sinking Springs Don Kreitz Jr. taking his third career victory in the event, worth $13,200, after having not laid eyes on the track in four years.  Kreitz never even intended to enter the event until he was at the track for the Friday night precursor to help teammate Ryan Smith and found the surface to his liking.  And both Smith and Kreitz started on the front row for the 50 with Kreitz taking control and entering traffic on the sixth lap.  Meanwhile, 24th starter Brian Montieth was blasting to the front, using the outside rail as a stabilizer, moving into fourth on just the 18th circuit.  Just before the lap 25 stoppage, Monteith got by Tim Shaffer to score third and on the restart both he and 15th starter Danny Dietrich set sail after Kreitz from third and sixth respectively.  The pair whizzed into second and third with 18 to go and Montieth would overtake Kreitz for control with 13 laps to go.  That move forced Kreitz to move up a lane in an effort to come back and the lane choice worked as he was able to split a lapped car to his inside and Montieth to his outside to regain the lead in wild fashion with just 10 laps remaining.  Heats went to Adam Wilt, Stevie Smith, Lance Dewease and Mike Wagner with the consolation going to Brian Leppo.  Tim Shaffer set quick time with a lap of 16.827.  Greg Hodnett led all 30 laps to win the Friday night All Stars race.  

 

Saturday, Sept. 6, 2014: Greg Hodnett of Thomasville made a bold first lap, thread-the-needle move to take the lead in the 47th annual event to trump the field for the fourth 50 checkers of his career worth over $13,000 in the 2014 All Stars event.  Fourth starter Hodnett got by front row starters Lynton Jeffrey and Danny Holtgraver on the first lap for the lead.  Hodnett restarted after the lap 25 break with two lapped cars between himself and Stevie Smith in second and Dale Blaney in third.  The final half of the event proved anti-climactic and Hodnett earned the checkers, giving a first-ever triumph in the race to No. 27 car owner Mike Heffner.   The fourth career 50 win for Hodnett moved him into a four-way tie to be the winningest 50 driver in history with Lance Dewease, Fred Rahmer and Doug Wolfgang.  Heats for a 41-car field went to Hodnett, Rick Lafferty, Jeffrey and Lance Dewease with Rodney Westhafer taking the B Main.  Dale Blaney set quick time with a lap of 16.776 seconds.  Stevie Smith won Friday nights All Stars Night Before The 50 aboard Fred Rahmers No. 51 machine, overtaking Doug Esh on the 11th lap of the non-stop 30 lap main.

 

 

Sunday, Sept. 13, 2015: Capping off an amazing week of competition at Port Royal, No. 19M Brent Marks of Myerstown won the 48th annual Tuscarora to record his third oval win in the four races held at the track during the 2015 Juniata County Fair.  After winning the Friday night preliminary event, he also became the fourth driver in history to sweep the Tuscarora weekend, joining Greg Hodnett, Lance Dewease and Fred Rahmer in the feat.  The 50 itself was delayed a day due to Saturday rain but it was worth the wait with the first 25 laps proving electrifying with multiple lead changes.  Ryan Taylor led lap one before Doug Esh took over.  Esh nearly lost the lead on the seventh lap when he had to spin his car to avoid hitting a crashed Dylan Cisney however he kept going and retained it.  But the restart saw Danny Dietrich power by for control however Esh was up to the challenge and tried to reclaim the helm and the two ended up colliding, taking themselves out of the race.  This handed the lead to Mike Wagner under caution however Wagner never got to be scored the leader as the restart saw Ohio youngster Sheldon Haudenschild make a two-car pass and blast from third to the lead on lap nine.  Marks moved into second with 12 away and restarted there after the lap 25 stoppage.  Haudenschild erred on the restart, entering the first turn in the middle, allowing Marks to blast the top and take control.  And once at the front, Marks turned on the afterburners to drive off from the field for the rest of the nonstop distance, pocketing $12,625 for the laurels.  Sanctioned again by the All Stars, heats in the 41-car event went to Esh, Rodney Westhafer, Wagner and Lance Dewease.  Twin B Mains went to Greg Wilson and Todd Shaffer with Greg Hodnett setting quick time of 18.138. 

 

Saturday, Sept. 10, 2016: The 49th running of the Tuscarora 50 proved to be record breaking when six-time track champion Lance Dewease of Fayetteville became the first five-time event winner, putting himself at the top of the all-time event win list while also scoring his 100th career victory at the Port Royal Speedway while aboard Don Kreitz Jrs No. 69K.  Dewease started eighth in the All Stars field and took the lead on the 12th circuit when leader Greg Hodnett broke the rear end on his machine.  Hodnett too was vying to win his fifth 50.  Deweases 2016 50 win was also his fifth for as many car owners, with prior wins coming for Walt Dyer in the 461 in 1994, for Joe Harz in the 88H 2001, for Al Hamilton in the 77 in 2002 and for Pete Postupack in the 25 in 2006.  Dewease restarted sixth in the field with eight laps down and poured on the power to move into second with 11 down.  Stevie Smith raced into second before the lap 25 stoppage and at the new green, he kept pace with Dewease in the first and second turns while Dewease would regain the ground he lost in the fourth corner on every lap.  A final caution with 19 to go reset the field but Dewease would again get away to take the $12,975 win, in fact checking out over the final circuits to win by nearly eight seconds.  Heats for the 41-car field went to Blane Heimbach, Dale Blaney, Sheldon Haudenschild and TJ Stutts with Mike Wagner winning the B Main.  Danny Dietrich set fast time with a lap of 16.479.  Smith won his third Night Before The 50 event on Friday but only after Greg Hodnett and Dewease both took turns leading.

CARBERRY, FRYE, HOFFMAN & BUSSEY TAKE WINS ON FOSS JEWELERS CHAMPIONSHIP NIGHT

SELINSGROVE, Pa. -- Foss Jewelers Championship Night at Selinsgrove Speedway Saturday produced some of the most exciting racing of the season, and the night was a roller coaster ride for several drivers in the hunt for track titles in the final points races of the season for the 360 sprint cars, super late models, pro stocks, and roadrunners.

Adam Carberry had a heartbreak moment a few weeks ago when a part broke while he was leading the 360 Sprint Car feature event. Carberry worked into lap traffic on lap eight while Michael Walter closed in on Carberry’s rear bumper in Saturday night’s 25-lap main event.

Carberry received an open race track when the yellow flag came out for Justin Whittall on lap nine. Carberry again broke away from the field while Walter and Cody Keller battled for the runner up spot.

Keller made a split-second decision to dive to the inside when Walter got stuck behind a lap car and grabbed the second spot. Keller began to close in on Carberry over the next few laps. Keller made up a lot of ground when Carberry got stuck behind a lap car with two to go.

Keller never got close enough to make the move as Carberry crossed the line for his first win at Selinsgrove Speedway and his first 360 Sprint Car win.

Carberry, Keller, Walter, Jason Shultz, and Eric Tomecek were the top five. Chad Layton, 2017 Mach 1 Chassis 360 sprint car points champion Davie Franek, Ryan Kissinger, Derek Locke, and Colby Womer rounded out the top ten.

Carberry and Kissinger were heat race winners for the 360 Sprinters.

Coleby Frye dominated the 25-lap Super Late Model feature event. Frye led from the front row while Jeff Rine charged from eighth to run second.

Rine closed in on Frye while he tried to make his way through lap traffic. Frye made the winning move in turns one and two when he made a three-wide pass in heavy traffic that Rine wasn’t able to make to remain in striking distance.

Once Frye cleared the traffic he was on track for the victory. At the finish, he crossed the line ahead of Rine, Dylan Yoder, Chad Hollenback, and Tony Adams.

Hayes Mattern finished sixth ahead of Dave Stamm, Kenny Trevitz, Kyle Rhoads, and Patrick Bryner.

Tony Adams was running fourth when the white flag was displayed. The spot was enough for him to win the championship. Hollenback passed Adams on the final corner to finish fourth and push Adams to fifth. With Mattern’s sixth-place finish he and Adams tied for the Jeff’s Auto Body & Recycling Center late model points championship.

AJ Hoffman and Brad Mitch gave the fans a thrilling end to the points paying season in the 15-lap A&A Auto Stores Pro Stock feature event. Hoffman led the feature race while Mitch pressured him. On one restart Hoffman got out of shape, but made a fantastic save.

On the next restart Mitch again began to challenge the leader. Hoffman, this time, would hang on to the top spot and start to pull away. Point leader Tommy Slanker moved into third and settled there over the final few laps allowing Mitch to continue his focus on the race leader.

Hoffman held on to grab his 48th career Selinsgrove Speedway win came over Mitch, Slanker, AJ Stroup, and Matt Hornberger.

Noah Jenson was sixth across the checkered flag ahead of Jake Buck, John Troxell, Wayne Shaffer, and Nick Gentile.

John Troxell, Kurt Wray, and Kyle Bachman won the heat races for the Pro Stocks.

The Collier Paving and Construction Roadrunner 20 led things off in the feature race line up on Saturday. Bob Bussey led much of the event while Keith Bissinger challenged him. Both drivers were previous winners of the big event. No one had ever won the race two times.

Bissinger put it all on the line on lap 14 when he dove to the inside of Bussey trying to take the victory. Bissinger slid up and tagged Bussey then spun to the inside of the track.

On the first lap point leader Will Bruson was involved in a wreck in turn one taking him out of the event. The fate of the championship sat in the hands of the now spun Bissinger who came into the night second in points.

Bussey’s race wasn’t over because Bissinger had to tag the back of the pack. Ryan Zook kept Bussey honest of the last six laps. Bussey held on to become the first two-time winner of the Roadrunner 20 that was worth $1,000. Zook was second followed by Brian Johnson, Michael Smith, and Tyler Amtower.

Bissinger finished sixth with Butch Shaffer, Tom Underwood, Dennis Conrad, and Brian Mabus in the top ten.

Bissinger originally crossed the line in seventh place which was enough for Brunson to claim the title. After the fifth place finisher came up light at the scale, Bissinger was credited with sixth. The bump up in points was enough for Bissinger to tie Brunson for the roadrunner points title.

Ben Leister, Jason Davis, and Corey Collier were the heat race winners for the Roadrunner 20.

Race night sponsor Foss Jewelers, located on Route 522 in Selinsgrove, has been serving friends and customers all across the central Pennsylvania region with affordable, high quality jewelry backed with unsurpassed customer service since 1949.

Dan Foss, now the sole proprietor of Foss Jewelers, sponsors the gold championship rings that will be presented to each of the track’s divisional champions at the awards banquet Saturday, Nov. 11, at the Genetti Hotel in Williamsport. Banquet tickets are on sale now for $35 each for adults and $15 for kids ages 5-12.

Two of the four track championships Saturday night ended in a points tie, marking only the fourth and fifth times in Selinsgrove Speedway history.

Davie Franek clinched the Mach 1 Chassis 360 sprint car title, Tommy Slanker won the A&A Auto Stores pro stock title, the Jeff's Auto Body & Recycling Center super late model title chase ended in a points tie between Hayes Mattern and Tony Adams, and the Collier Paving & Construction roadrunner championship ended in a points tie between Will Brunson and Keith Bissinger.

The last points championship tie at the track occurred in 2000 between 410 sprint car drivers Todd Shaffer and Keith Kauffman. The sprint car division also had a championship tie in 1964 between Dick Tobias and Leroy Felty. The late model division's only other title tie was in 1980 between Dale Kerstetter and Bob Smith.

Next weekend marks a two-race weekend over the Labor Day holiday at Selinsgrove Speedway!

The final 360 sprint car race of the year will be a 30-lap co-sanctioned event with the United Racing Club and Patriot Sprint Tour paying $3,000 to win and $300 to start Saturday, Sept. 2. The pro stocks and roadrunners will each run championship races.

SUSQUEHANNA SPEEDWAY RACE RESULTS

SCOTT DELLINGER PULLS AWAY FOR THIRD SUSKY WIN Bllet First Time Winner while Hoffer and McClane Repeat Winners By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA…8/26/17

Scott Dellinger made it look relatively easy as he drove to his third win of the season in Saturday night’s 25-lap Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman feature at Susquehanna Speedway.

Aboard his Dellinger Auto Body, Reesers Soft Serve Ice Cream, AAI Recycling, G. A Smith Towing No. 30, the Lewisberry driver came from his eighth starting spot and held on during numerous cautions and a long red flag to take the win. Dellinger’s second win in the last month also put him on top of the track point lead as the series heads into the final stretch of the season.

Eight time champion Frankie Herr set the pace from his pole starting spot and would hold the lead until his bid for his first win ended when he slowed on the speedway with five laps complete.

Jay Fannasy and Dellinger both got around Nate Young on the restart as Fannasy led lap six before Dellinger made a bold move to take the top spot with seven laps in the books.

As Dellinger pulled away, last week’s winner Russ Mitten and five time track winner Kenny Edkin were working their way to the front.

The race was halted on a lap 14 restart as five cars crashed on the front stretch. The cars of Garrett Williamson and Tom Wyckoff both flipped while Gregg Foster walked to the ambulance after taking a hard hit.

Dellinger quickly pulled away on the restart as Mitten pulled a slider to steal second spot from Fannasy with 16 laps in and attempted to track down the leader. But it was all Dellinger over the final nine circuits as he cruised to a 3.026 margin of victory for his fifth career Susquehanna win.

Mitten held off Edkin for the runner-up finish with Doug Dodson coming from 13th to finish fourth to earn the Artwerks Hard Charger over Fannasy with Paul Miller crossing sixth ahead of Chris Meleason, Mike Enders, Rich Eichelberger and Davey Walsh.

Heats for the 26 Super Sportsman were won by Herr, Young and Miller.

The 25-lap Bernheisel Race Cars 358 Late Model main got off to a rough start as a five car pileup, which saw the car of JR Rodriguez land on its side quickly brought out a red flag.

After the cleanup, front row starter Chase Billet grabbed the lead and would never look back in capturing his first win of the season and becoming the ninth different winner this year.

Justin Weaver chased Billet the entire distance but was unable to make the pass and settled for second ahead of Randy Stoudt, point leader and 10th starter Randy Christine, Jr. and 12th starter Sam Rial.

Matt Murphy earned the Artwerks Hard Charger award coming from 14th to sixth ahead of Eric Hohol, Sean Merkel, Jake Moser and Tim Murphy.

Stoudt and Weaver were heat race winners for the 17 BRC 358 Late models.

Despite six cautions, including one on the final lap, Hoffer prevailed over ninth starter Craig Morgan, Randy Zechman, Ryan Smith and Jim Palm with Matt Adams, Jimmy Combs, Brandon Wanner, Scott Thunberg and Carl Graves. Graves won the Artwerks/Ricky Bobby Hard Charger after lining up 20th.

Hoffer, Mike Buckley and Zechman won heats for the 28 Street Stocks.

Patrick McClane took the lead on the third lap of the 20-lap Superior Homes Extreme Stock feature and raced to his fourth win of the year and second straight checkered flag.

Jonestown Jet Zearfoss Sets 25-lap Track Record, Takes Third Port Main In A Row

Andy Haus scores first late model win of season, Garman and Miller also win

8/26/17

Port Royal – In track record time, Brock Zearfoss of Jonestown completed a sweep of the month of August at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night by claiming his third 410 sprint car main in a row.

Zearfoss started eighth in the field to record the $3,200 payday and set himself up to launch into the most lucrative week of the season at the track as the Juniata County Fair Races loom.

In the 22-lap super late model main, defending track champion Andy Haus of Hamburg scored his first win of the season after early leader Austin Berry was sidelined.

Derrick Garman took the win in the 18-lap econo late model main and Jeff Miller scored the 305 sprint feature to close out the night.

Polesitter Jared Esh blasted into the lead at the start of what would be the non-stop, 25-lap 410 sprint car feature, chased by Daryl Stimeling and fifth starter Blane Heimbach.

Esh was blistering the track early in the Ehrenzeller No. 33 and was way ahead of Heimbach when the Selinsgrove pilot drove into second on the second tour.

It took until lap four for Zearfoss to blast into third and begin racing for the top spots.

With a 2.819 second lead, Esh of Lancaster entered the backmarkers on the eighth tour as he circled the outside of the speedway with Heimbach and Zearfoss in pursuit.

By lap 11, Heimbach had cut Esh’s lead down to 1.156 seconds as both he and Zearfoss battled for the second spot.

With 10 laps to go, Esh’s advantage had all but evaporated, now down to .48 seconds amid traffic and a lap later, Zearfoss pulled the trigger on Heimbach for second with a move in the third and fourth turns.

It took Zearfoss just two more laps to run down Esh and bolt into the lead before driving away and Heimbach then took the second spot with five laps to go.

Indeed the front trio was fleet in command of the field with three-quarters of a lap separating the third place car of Esh from the fourth place machine of Daryl Stimeling during the final circuits.

Zearfoss’ margin of victory over Heimbach was 1.069 seconds, followed by a career best third place finish for Esh.

Daryl Stimeling was fourth followed by Carl Bowser,

Sixth through 10th went to Lucas Wolfe, AJ Flick, TJ Stutts, Dylan Cisney and Trenton Sheaffer.

Heats went to Sheaffer and Zearfoss.

With the non-stop run, Zearfoss set a new 25-lap track record of 7:22.973, shaving some 10 seconds off of the old mark held by Brent Marks.

Second starter Austin Berry of Nook took the lead at the beginning of the super late model main with Chris Casner giving chase while Andy Haus started sixth in the field.

Devin Friese, who started fourth, motored into second with four laps away but Haus was close behind.

Haus made his move of the race on the 11th lap when he threaded the needle entering the third corner to get by Friese for the second spot.

Meanwhile, Berry was running the ragged cushion and after a clout of the outside second turn wall a few laps earlier, a second hit of the wall at the same spot cost him control on the 13th tour as he pulled pitside.

This handed control to Haus who drove away easily to the victory, taking the checkers by 4.344 seconds over Friese.

Third place went to Tim Wilson, followed by Gene Knaub and Mike Lupfer.

Sixth through 10th went to Matt Parks, Chris Casner, Jason Schmidt, Tim Smith Jr. and Scott Flickinger.

Heats went to Haus and Smith Jr.

Shaun Miller of Tower City led the first two laps of the econo late model main before fifth starter Derrick Garman took the lead that he would hold to the finish.

Miller eventually faded to finish fourth while Tim Fedder advanced to finish second after starting in the fifth spot.

Andrew Stotler was third with JR Toner rounding out the top five finishers.

Heats went to Harold Ranck Jr. and Fedder.

Jeff Miller took the lead from Scott Ellerman on the sixth lap of the 18 lap 305 sprint main but Ellerman refused to give up, challenging Miller all the way to the finish.

Ellerman repeatedly stabbed at the lead with low side moves, sometimes even taking control only to see Miller use his cushion groove to blast back around and reclaim command.

Miller ended up with this third oval win of the season, taking the win by a small margin of .613 seconds over Ellerman.

Cale Reigle finished third followed by Tyler Reeser and Ken Duke Jr.

Heats went to Miller, Reigle and Dave Grube.

Saturday, September 16, 2017 (7:30 PM) - URC/358 Sprint Challenge (Non points race for 358s), 358 Late Models, Central PA Legends & Eastern Museum of Motor Racing (EMMR)

DIETRICH EDGES MONTEITH IN ANOTHER LINCOLN 410 SPRINT CAR CLASSIC;

Doug Hammaker makes last-lap pass for 358 sprint win; Bob Stough claims Central PA Legends feature win

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA – August 26, 2017 – It was another race for the ages at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

Danny Dietrich looked like he was on his way to a convincing win from his 11th starting spot after grabbing lead from polesitter and race-long leader Scott Fisher on the backstretch of lap 12 and dominating the next seven laps.

But enter 12th-starting and Lincoln points leader Brian Montieth.

A lap 19 red flag for a flipping Robbie Kendall, who turned over while trying to avoid a spinning Fisher in turns three and four Matt Campbell and Montieth in second and third for the restart and erased a three-second lead by Dietrich.

Montieth took the runner-up spot immediately after the restart, and set his sights on Dietrich with five laps to go.

He chased the seven-time Lincoln winner into lapped traffic with two laps to go, and actually drove around Dietrich for the lead in turns one and two of the last lap. Dietrich returned the favor the final turns for his 38th career Lincoln win and $3,769 top prize, which included a $200 bonus and a $200 hard-charger award from race sponsors McSherrystown Moose Lodge #720 and Lawrence’s Body Shop, and a $169 bonus in memory of Chris Glatfelter on the anniversary of his passing.

“I knew I wasn’t very good. It seemed like after the red…we ran a right rear that we ran 10 or 14 laps in the feature at the Grove last night,” said Dietrich in victory lane, “It just felt like it was going away. I kept getting tight in the left rear and was just overdriving the car. I reached for the wing trying to move it forward and there was no more ‘forward’ to go, so I knew I was going to be in trouble and it was a matter of hanging on.”

“I made a bad move there going into one and he drove around me and I just thought I’d better go to the top because I didn’t figure he was going to follow anybody on the top going into three,” said Dietrich in describing the final lap, “I figured I’d take my shot and go there. I ran front bumper into (Dwayne) Gutshall just to make sure there wasn’t any gap for him to get into.”

“Sometimes you’re that good that early that you worry that maybe you’re too good too early,” continued Dietrich, “I think that was the case tonight. Brian’s car came in good and he’s always tough, especially when you get to racing hard like we did there that last lap. I knew he had to be on me before that, but I couldn’t roll the cushion with the left rear too tight and I had to roll out of the throttle. Glad to be standing here to get a win for this team.”

Campbell settled for third, with defending track champ Alan Krimes and Freddie Rahmer fifth. Sixth through tenth were Brandon Rahmer, Cory Haas, Chad Trout, Tim Wagaman, and Gerard McIntyre, Jr.

Heats for the 25 “410” Sprints on hand were won by Montieth, Glenndon Forsythe, and McIntyre.

Doug Hammaker came from ninth starting spot to make a last-lap pass and score the win in the fourth leg of the five-race K1 Race Gear 358 Sprint Car Summer Series event.

It looked like 12th-starting Chase Dietz, who had a four-second lead with five laps to go, was well on his way to the win before he suddenly slowed on the front stretch with a flat tire, as did third-place Jack Eldreth at the same time, bringing out the caution on lap 24. That handed the lead over to Troy Wagaman, Jr., who came from 17th starting spot, with Hammaker right behind.

On the restart, Wagaman held Hammaker off on lap 24, but Hammaker made the race-winning pass going into turns one and two of the final lap. Jeff Halligan, who came from the rear after an early-race spin, also drove under Wagaman in turn two of the final lap and finished second, with Wagaman settling for third, Tyler Ross fourth, and Cody Fletcher fifth.

Sixth through tenth were 21st-starting Kyle Denmyer, 23rd-starting Chris Frank (the hard charger), 22nd-starting Steve Drevicki, 24th-starting Trey Hivner, and point leader Adrian Shaffer, who came back through the field following a 13th-lap spin.

Heats for the 34 “358” Sprints on hand were won by Jake Eldreth, Jon Stewart, Kody Hartlaub, and Nyle Berkes, with Kyle Denmyer winning the consolation.

Bob Stough out-dueled three-time winner Mason Chaney to score his first win of the year in the 20-lap Central PA Legends feature. Stough took advantage of a 12-car inversion to start fourth in the feature, and wrestled the lead away from Chaney on lap 13. He led the rest of the way, with Lucas Montgomery catching Chaney on the final lap to finish second. Fourth and fifth behind Chaney were Travis McClelland and Donnie Leiby, in his best-ever Lincoln finish.

Stough’s win completed his return from an early-second injury (broken wrist). It was his eighth career Lincoln Legends win.

Heats for the 31 Central PA Legends were won by Hayden Pascoe, Chad Earnst, and Montgomery, with Scott Smith winning the consolation.

Next Saturday September 2nd at 7:30 PM Lincoln Speedway will hold the BOB LEIBY MEMORIAL for the 410 Sprints paying $4,000 to win in their final point race for the 2017 racing season. The 358 Sprints and Central PA Legends will round out the evening’s racing action and capped-off with a spectacular FIREWORKS display. Gates will open at 5:30 PM.

Buckwalter And Keller Wire Williams Grove Sprint Fields For Wins

8/25/17

Mechanicsburg – Steve Buckwalter and Cody Keller wired the sprint car fields for victories on Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway, in the 410 and 358 sprint car divisions, respectively.

Buckwalter started second in the field to lead every lap of the 25-circuit main event for the 410 sprint cars.

His pace was slowed only once, on the fifth lap when the red flag appeared for a fire on the machine of Eric Tomecek.

For the restart, Kody Lehman chased Buckwalter but fifth starter Cory Haas moved into the second spot on the 13th tour just as the leader entered the backmarkers.

Eighth starter Brock Zearfoss followed Haas and took third one lap later.

Although Zearfoss took his shots at Haas, it was Haas who tried to spoil Buckwalter’s party late in the race.

Haas steadily drove down Buckwalter’s advantage, shaving a full second off of his lead from lap 17 to lap 20.

However during the final circuits, Buckwalter was again able to stretch out his advantage to 1.277 seconds at the finish.

Haas shot low across the third and fourth turns repeatedly during the late going trying to stick with Buckwalter but instead rode home second.

The victory was the eighth of Buckwalter’s career at Williams Grove Speedway.

Zearfoss crossed the line in third followed by Lucas Wolfe and Freddie Rahmer.

Sixth through 10th went to Alan Krimes, Kody Lehman, Anthony Macri, Brian Montieth and Rick Lafferty.

Heats went to Nicole Bower, Lafferty and Wolfe.

Keller of Selinsgrove ran the ragged edge and sometimes over it to pick up his first career 358-sprint victory at the speedway.

After starting second in the field, Keller would lead all 25 laps of the K1 RaceGear Summer Series main event to take home a $1,500 payday.

However the Snyder County pilot nearly gave the win away on several occasions when he jumpsed the cusion at both ends of the speedway.

The initial lap of the 358 sprint main was halted for an eight-car melee in the third turn that saw at least two cars flip.

No injuries were reported however.

Keller entered the backmarkers on the ninth tour of the event, chased by Brett Wanner and Phil Walter.

However one-time 2017 winner Kevin Nouse was on the move through the top-five and eventually worked his way into second with a pair of laps to go.

And by that time, Keller was losing ground and hopping the cushion repeatedly, creating a closer finish at the end than perhaps would have developed otherwise.

Nouse rode home second behing an exciting performance by Keller, followed by Wanner, Chad Trout and Troy Wagaman Jr.

Sixth through 10th went to Steve Owings, Chase Dietz, Phil Walter, Chris Frank and Brent Shearer.

Heats went to Walter, Keller, Nouse and Nyle Berkes with Denny Gross scoring the consolation race.

NEW EGYPT SPEEDWAY PIONEER POLE BUILDINGS JERSEY RUSH VII. . . . .

JJ GRASSO GRABS THIRD 410 SPRINT JERSEY RUSH WIN; PAUCH JR. POWERS TO MODIFIED VICTORY

NEW EGYPT, NJ (August 23, 2017) – Two of the region’s most popular racing divisions converged on New Egypt Speedway, this past Wednesday, for Jersey Rush VII presented by Pioneer Pole Buildings. JJ Grasso of Middletown, DE scored the win – and the $5,000 prize money -- in the 410 Sprint Car portion of the event, while Billy Pauch Jr. of Frenchtown, NJ was victorious in an action-packed Modified feature.

“The set-up on this car was perfect tonight,” Grasso gushed in victory lane. “All I had to do is get behind the wheel and drive – it couldn’t have been more perfect.”

Robbie Stillwaggon and Kyle Reinhardt led the field to the green flag, and kicked off the 30-lap A-Main in fine fashion charging hard on the topside of the 7/16-mile dirt track – it was short lived as Danny Dietrich spun on the second circuit bringing the yellow out for the first time.

Stillwaggon powered ahead on the start, with Grasso moving into the second position. Grasso slid inside Stillwaggon on lap four, with Kyle Reinhardt moving into the second position. The caution flew for the second time on the lap 15 when Mark Bitner’s No. 15 slowed on the front stretch.

It was all Grasso on the restart, pulling away from the field and maintaining a sizable advantage as laps clicked down. Grasso and the No.37 BK Trucking machine would roll on for the win with Kyle Reinhardt coming home in the second position. Lucas Wolfe finished in the third position after an exciting battle with Davey Sammons – who settled for fourth and Ryan Smith rounded out the top-five finishers.

The big-block of three-time defending New Egypt Speedway track champion, Ryan Godown led the field to the start of the 30-lap modified feature event with Danny Bouc on his outside. Godown took the lead on the initial start, but a lap two caution slowed the field.

On the restart, Bouc took the lead with Pauch Jr. following into the second position. Action slowed for the second time on the third circuit.

Pauch Jr. took the lead on the restart with Duane Howard powering the Norm’s Save Station No. 357 into the second spot.

At the halfway point, Pauch Jr. maintained control, while all eyes were fixated on the four-car battle for the second position – with Howard holding off challenges from Bouc, Jeff Strunk, and Brandon Grosso.

Pauch would weave through heavy lapped traffic, maintaining a sizable advantage over the battle for second place, and collecting the $3,000 Jersey Rush VII victory. Howard held on to the runner-up position, while Danny Bouc finished third, Brandon Grosso in fourth, and Jeff Strunk rounded out the top five.

Danny Dietrich claimed the CnB Chubby Quick Time Award with a fast lap of 13.944 in 410 Sprint Car Time Trials.

Oliver Communications Group Heat Race Bonuses went to Robbie Stillwaggon and Davey Sammons in the 410 Sprint Cars and Danny Bouc and Brandon Grosso in the Modifieds.

Pioneer Pole Buildings Jersey Rush VII is a co-promotion between Lenny, Danny, and Davey Sammons along with special events promoter, Bob Miller.

GREG HODNETT DOMINATES ALL STARS AT SUSQUEHANNA Nick Sweigart Takes PASS IMCA 305 Sprint Win By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA…8/20/17 It had the makings of the last time the BAPS Coatings and Supplies 410 Sprint Series competed at Susquehanna Speedway when Greg Hodnett led all but the lap that counted.

Hodnett made sure that wasn’t the case in Sunday night’s Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions Justin Snyder Salute to the Troops event as he dominated all 30 laps of the A-Main to close out the four-race All Star swing through Central Pennsylvania.

Hodnett’s win also gave the PA Posse four straight weekend wins over the All Stars but the win was the Spring Grove drivers first All Star triumph since June 2015.

Hodnett won the first Dash that put him on the pole for the $5,000 to win event but a quick caution for a multi car pileup on the second lap slowed the pace.

When the green replaced the yellow, Hodnett immediately pulled away from the field as fourth starting Lucas Wolfe moved into the runner-up spot.

Wolfe stayed within striking distance of Hodnett who worked his way through heavy lapped traffic starting on lap eight as the race stayed green until the 25th lap when officials thought Tyler Esh was going to stop and threw the yellow flag.

The yellow wiped out a near six-second advantage Hodnett had over the field and put Wolfe on his bumper for the restart.

Like the July race, Wolfe chased Hodnett until the final lap when he stole the win but Hodnett wasn’t able to let that happen this time as he pulled away from Wolfe over the final five circuits to become the first repeat winner in BAPS 410 Sprint action this season at Susquehanna.

Hodnett’s win in the Mike Heffner owned #27 was his fifth of the year in Central PA and came over Wolfe by nearly two seconds.

Lance Dewease finished third ahead of Anthony Macri and Brock Zearfoss with Tim Shaffer, Mark Smith, Danny Dietrich, Dale Blaney and Max Stambaugh completing the top ten finishers.

Ryan Smith paced the 36-car All Star field in time trials with a lap of 15.317 seconds to earn the $500 bonus from Emory Transmissions.

All Star heat races were won by Dewease, Zearfoss, Macri and Hodnett while Hodnett and Macri were the two Dash winners. Sammy Swindell won the B-Main.

Trey Starks picked up the $500 bonus from Brown and Miller Race Solutions for the Hard Charger. Starks started 23rd and finished 14th.

Like Hodnett, Nick Sweigart wired the field to post the win in the 20-lap Freedmont® Mortgage PASS/IMCA 305 Sprint car feature.

Starting on the pole, Sweigart dominated the event but two late race cautions kept things interesting at the front but it was Sweigart scoring his first win at the track ahead of Kyle Smith, Darren Miller, Austin Bishop and Kassidy Kreitz with 16th starter Dave Brown coming home sixth over Eddie Wagner, Zach Newlin, 21st starter Ken Duke, Jr. and John Scarborough.

Drew Ritchey, Scott Ellerman, Ian Detweiler and Darren Miller were heat race winners for the 37 Freedmont® Mortgage 305 Sprints. Ken Duke, Jr. and Greg Dobrosky were double consolation winners.

The next BAPS 410 Sprint Series event will be on Thursday night, September 21 when the 410 Sprints will be joined by the Central PA Legends. Race time will be 7PM.

Susquehanna Speedway returns to action Saturday night, August 26 on Hanover Auto Team Night featuring the Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman, Bernheisel Race Cars 358 Late Models, Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stocks and Superior Homes Extreme Stocks. Race time is 7PM.

SATURDAY, AUGUST 19, 2017 SUSQUEHANNA SPEEDWAY RACE RESULTS

RUSS MITTEN GETS THIRD WIN AT SUSQUEHANNA Christine Scores Fourth LM Win While McClane Gets Third Extreme Win By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA…8/19/17

Russ Mitten’s third win of the season in Saturday’s 25-lap Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman feature at Susquehanna Speedway has turned the point battle heading into the final stretch of the season into a barnburner.

With Mitten’s win and Scott Dellinger’s runner-up finish coupled with leading winner Kenny Edkin’s first DNF of the season, the battle at the top is intense with 45 points separating the top three and just 150 separating the fourth place driver.

Mitten started ninth aboard his Newville Electrical Services, RPM Chassis and wasted little time in moving to the front as Tom Wyckoff led the first four laps before Timmie Barrick took over with five laps complete.

Barrick held the point until lap 10 when a caution flew.

On the restart, contact was made by Gregg Foster with Barrick, who then got into Tony Jackson, ending both of their good runs at the front.

Foster then took over before Mitten grabbed the top spot on lap 15 and then had to hold on through three yellows, including one with three laps to go before taking the checkered flag.

Mitten’s win, his 10th straight top 10 finish, moved him into a tie for the track point lead with Dellinger, who started 10th and finished in the runner-up spot Saturday night with Foster taking third ahead of Doug Dodson and 21st starter and Artwerks/Team 14 Hard Charger Paul Miller.

Completing the top ten finishers were Frankie Herr, Wyckoff, 15th starter Davey Walsh, Chad Smith and 18th starter Bruce Buckwalter, Jr.

Garrett Williamson, Foster and Wyckoff won heats for the 26 Super Sportsman.

It was all Randy Christine, Jr. in the 20-lap Bernheisel Race Cars 358 Late Model feature as he led flag to flag for his fourth feature win of the year.

Christine started third and drove to the front at the start and drove off from the field to post the win over Chase Billet, Drew Weisser, ninth starter and ArtwerksHard Charger Sam Rial and Cory Merkel.

Heats for the 11 late models went to Cameron Benyou and Cory Merkel.

Patrick McClane came out on top of a side by side battle to capture his third win of the year in the 20-lap Superior Homes Extreme Stock feature.

McClane started fifth, took the lead from Alex Updegraff on lap 11 and held off last week’s winner Travis Horan for the win with Updegraff third over 12th starter and Artwerks Hard Charger Kyle Emig and Jeff Gill.

Brandon Staccone and Johnny Palm won heats for the 14 cars.

Roland Brown was the winner of the Classic Car Club feature over Neal Reamer, Steve Clemo, Ron Grove and Chad Stine.

Susquehanna Speedway returns to action Saturday night, August 26 on Hanover Auto Team Night featuring the Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman, Bernheisel Race Cars 358 Late Models, Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stocks and Superior Homes Extreme Stocks. Race time is 7PM.

World of Outlaws Star Sheppard Wires For Port Royal Late Model Win

Zearfoss Races From 11th Spot In Sprints To Win Third Of Port Season

8/19/17

Port Royal – World of Outlaws Late Model star Brandon Sheppart of New Berlin, Illinois, wired the field for a 40-lap, $10,000 victory at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night in the series first return to the track since 2008.

In the 410 sprint car main, Brock Zearfoss of Jonestown started 11th and weaved through the field in front to pick up his third oval win of the season.

Zearfoss took home $3,500 including a $300 bonus for winning from the 11th starting spot.

The racing program was delayed more than three hours thanks to rains that hit the track just as initial warm ups were being held at 6:30 pm.

Brandon Sheppard claimed his 13th win of the season with the World of Outlaws Craftsman Late Model Series at Port Royal.

"Hats off to my guys," said Sheppard. "They work really hard on this thing to give me a good car. It started getting black there in the groove and we stayed a little bit freed up in the cushion there, so I think a little bit of an adjustment would've been better.”

“It was a little treacherous out there but nothing fell off of the car so good job to the team. I owe it all to them guys."

Sheppard started on the outside of pole sitter, Tyler Erb, for the feature but quickly found his way around his fellow Rocket Chassis XR1 driver on the first lap.

A total of four caution flags and one red flag hampered Sheppard’s pace throughout the distance on the tacky track as the cushion built all around the oval.

Erb was able to hold on to second for a few laps early before a caution fell on lap 3 for Matt Cosner who slowed on the track. The dixie double-file restart placed Jason Covert, who was running in third at the time, on the bottom and Erb on the top of the half-mile speedway as the field went back to green.

Covert then made his move and successfully claimed second from the Outlaw young gun.

Erb was holding a steady third position on the track while fending off charges from Devin Moran and Chris Madden for multiple laps. Unfortunately, bad luck continued to follow the No. 91 First Class Septic machine as he shredded his right rear tire on lap 26 which sidelined him for the remainder of the show.

Due to Erb's retirement from the shootout, Madden inherited the final podium position and began to work on catching Covert and Sheppard.

During the last 10 laps of the feature, things began heating up between Sheppard and Covert as Sheppard’s advantage of 1.336 seconds was cut down to half a car length by lap 36.

In fact, every time the pair would compete under extended green flag runs, Covert would steadily narrow the gap only to see his progress set back by another caution flag.

On lap 37 as Covert honed in on Sheppard amid lapped traffic on the frontchute, the machine of Nick Dickson became collateral damage in the race while going a lap down.

With Covert to his inside and Sheppard just ahead, Dickson was sent careening up and over the cushion in the first turn where he promptly dug in and flipped completely over before coming to rest against the top side guardrail.

Although his ride took a toll, Dickson walked away uninjured from the red flag incident.

After the restart, Sheppard pulled away from Covert and Madden's grasp as he created a 1.836 difference between himself and the field before the finish.

"Half-miles haven't been my best tracks but my team has stuck behind me and they are really good support for me," said Sheppard.

"They put it all on me to get the job done and it's been a big learning curve this year. I feel like we have made leaps and bounds on the half-miles so that's good for me. Josh [Richards] was always good at [half-miles] so I had some big shoes to fill but I am getting better and I am hoping for a good rest of the season."

Heats went to Jeff Rine, Chris Madden, Sheppard and Covert with twin consolations going to Jared Miley and Dan Stone.

Overall fast time in the 36-car field was set by Sheppard with a time of 17.589 seconds.

Jeff Rine lowered the eight-lap track record in the first heat race before Chris Madden lowered his mark in the second heat, setting the new mark at 2:21.563.

Although some drivers chose to give up on the sprint car event before it got started, Brock Zearfoss proved that passing was no problem in the 25-lap sprint car feature as he zipped from his sixth row starting spot to the win.

Second starter Daryl Stimeling took the lead at the start as Nicole Bower gave chase with both Mike Wagner and Zearfoss moving through the field.

Wagner raced into third from the ninth starting spot with eight laps complete but Zearfoss overtook him for the position just two laps later.

With 13 tours completed Zearfoss blasted around Bower for second and set his sights on leader Stimeling and the battle for the lead unfolded.

Zearfoss made an attempt underneath Stimeling in the first and second turns with 11 laps to go but Stimeling was stout on the cushion and pulled back in front as the pair raced onto the backchute.

Zearfoss was regrouping for another stab at the lead with 10 to go when Sammy Swindell stopped on the frontstretch, bringing out the races only caution flag.

“The Jonestown Jet,” Zearfoss struck for the lead on the restart when he blasted the bottom as the leaders entered the first corner to come up with control as the field shot off of the second corner.

And then once in front, Zearfoss checked out on the field, opening up a half-lap advantage of 6.671 seconds over Stimeling by the finish.

Mike Wagner wrestled third away from Bower during the last two laps with Bower settling for fourth and 16th starter and point leader Dylan Cisney finishing in fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Logan Wagner, Blane Heimbach, TJ Stutts, Joey Hershey and Trenton Sheaffer.

Heats went to AJ Flick, Jared Esh and Stimeling.

STORMS STOP SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY SATURDAY NIGHT; FINAL POINTS RACES SLATED FOR AUGUST 26

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Storms and persistent rain struck Selinsgrove Speedway at 7:30 p.m. Saturday night and stopped all the action just prior to the heat races.

A strong field of race cars was pit-side on Collier Paving & Construction Night with 23 360 sprints for a non-sanctioned race along with a full field of 305 sprints, 15 pro stocks, and 18 roadrunners for the twice-postponed Roadrunner 20.

The speedway will swing back into action at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 26, with the final points races of the season on Foss Jewelers/Armed Forces Appreciation Night. During the month of August’s final race the track titles for the Mach 1 Chassis 360 sprint cars, Jeff’s Auto Body & Recycling Center super late models, and A&A Auto Stores pro stocks and roadrunners will be decided. The roadrunners will also race in the rescheduled $1,000-to-win Roadrunner 20.

The chase for the super late model championship is the closest it’s been in many years at Selinsgrove Speedway. Only 10 points separate first from third in the championship battle between leader Hayes Mattern, second-place runner Steve Campbell, and third-place points driver Tony Adams.

The 305 sprint cars have been added to the Jim Nace Memorial National Open for 410 sprint cars with the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions Saturday, Sept. 16.

Abbottstown, PA

ALL-STAR CIRCUIT OF CHAMPIONS

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Saturday, August 26, 2017 (7:30 PM) – YORK COUNTY RACING CLUB NIGHT - 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints (“K1 RaceGear 358 Sprint Summer Series” finale), and Central PA Legends

Saturday, September 2, 2017 (7:30 PM) - BOB LEIBY MEMORIAL - 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints, and Central PA Legends, plus FIREWORKS [***Final points race for 410 Sprints***]

FORSYTHE SCORES FIRST ARTIC CAT ALL-STAR WIN AT LINCOLN;

CHANEY MAKES LAST TURN PASS TO EDGE MONTGOMERY IN CENTRAL PA LEGENDS

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA – August 19, 2017 – One thing can be said about Glenndon Forsythe’s first career All-Star Circuit of Champions win at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night. He earned it.

Forsythe joined Cory Haas on the front row of the 30-lap $5,000 to win feature by virtue of winning their respective dashes. Haas led the first lap, but Forsythe led the rest, holding several challengers through heavy lapped traffic, including a breathtaking move through three lapped cars to hold off Haas and Danny Dietrich through turns and four of lap 28.

“That’s Lincoln. If you race enough green flag laps here, you’re going to get to lapped traffic,” said a jubilant Forsythe in victory lane, “I need to get better at it, but I did enough to stay out front, and I still can’t believe we’re here tonight.”

The race-saving move came just before a caution for a stopped Tim Wagaman in turn four of lap 29, setting up a green-white-checkered finish. On the subsequent restart, Dietrich spun in turn two while trying to slide under Haas for second, with All-Star points leader Chad Kemenah assuming for the final restart.

“I saw the scoreboard there with Cory (Haas) and Danny (Dietrich)there. Cory had been there the whole race, so he wasn’t slackin’, and I was happy to see that yellow come out. I was terrible in lapped traffic, and I was falling out of the seat and needed break. I got the break when I needed it,” said Forsythe, “I can’t be happier for (car owner) Norm Wisner and this whole team. Sponsor Dynatech Controls had its company picnic out in the parking lot this afternoon, so I’m happy for that.”

Kemenah did catch Haas for second on the final restart when Haas slid high trying to get by Forsythe for the race lead and crossed a close second, with Haas settling for third, Freddie Rahmer fourth, and Matt Campbell fifth.

Sixth through tenth were 13th-starting Alan Krimes, Tim Shaffer, 18th-starting Robbie Kendall, Brian Montieth (who came from the rear after an early-race spin), and 21st-starting Anthony Macri.

Sprint heats were won by Shaffer, Ryan Smith, Dietrich, and Kemenah, with Chad Trout winning the B-Main. A pair of dashes were won by Haas and Forsythe, and fast time in time trials over the 40-car All Star Sprint field was set by Caleb Helms with a 1-lap time of 13.401-seconds (100.739 MPH).

Littlestown’s Mason Chaney made a last-turn pass on Lucas Montgomery and led the final 100 yards to score his third Lincoln win of the year and the fourth of his Lincoln career in the 20-lap Central PA Legends feature,

Chaney, who was credited with a win in his heat despite crossing backwards after tangling with Harlon Leppo at the end, started third. Scott Smith led the first four laps before yielding to fifth-starting Montgomery, who led until the final turn.

Chaney, who spun but kept going when Leppo again made contact with him in turns three and four of lap 13, assumed second for the restart and dogged Montgomery the rest of the way.

The race for the lead became a three-car battle when Hayden Pascoe joined the chase with four laps to go.

Chaney drove under Montgomery on the final turn to the checkered, with Montgomery settling for second and Pascoe third. 15-starting Bob Stough came on late to finish fourth, with Bill Diehl fifth.

Heats for the 28 Central PA Legends were won by Travis Perry, Smith, and Leppo, with Zachary Settle winning the consolation.

Next Saturday, August 26th, it will be the rescheduled McSherrystown Moose Lodge #720 Night and the second of two York County Racing Club Nights on the year. The 410 Sprints will be joined by the 358 Sprints in a “K1 RaceGear 358 Sprint Summer Series” event and the Central PA Legends. Gates open at 5:30 p.m., with racing action to get underway at 7:30 p.m

FROM WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY

AUGUST 18, 2017

DANNY DIETRICH WINS JACK GUNN MEMORIAL AT WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY

MECHANCISBURG, PA – Danny Dietrich inherited the lead when Rico Abreu blew a tire and went on to win the Jack Gunn Memorial Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway beating the All Star Circuit of Champions Sprint cars.

His win in the Gary Kauffman sprinter was worth $5,000.

“It’s great,” said Dietrich. “I’m proud of my guys. It’s great to be standing here again. We’ve had a rough season here and this might turn it around. This isn’t my kind of race track, but we had a fast car all night long. We were pretty good on the bottom.”

Lucas Wolfe and Abreu shared the front row to start the 30-lap main event. They raced side-by-side down the frontstretch and into turn one. Abreu secured the lead as they raced off turn two.

Anthony Macri got high in turn four and Danny Dietrich drove into third and Sammy Swindell into fourth.

Abreu reached slower traffic with six laps completed.

The heavy lapped traffic allowed Wolfe and Dietrich to close on the leader. They were all over him, but couldn’t make the pass.

Abreu squeezed in between a lapped car and the fence off turn two to maintain some space between himself and second.

Dietrich, who started third, used an inside move off turn four to take second from Wolfe with nine laps completed.

Abreu continued to work by traffic eventually finding clear track again. Dietrich was slowly closing on the leader.

Abreu blew a left rear tire in turn two and spun bringing out the caution with 18 laps completed.

“I was lucky enough to see it and get ready for it,” said Dietrich. “I wasn’t sure which way he was going to go. I’m glad I saw him when I did and I didn’t get into him and we were able to escape that.”

Dietrich assumed the lead and controlled the restart. Wolfe was running third, but had a left front flat tire as Greg Hodnett drove by.

Macri spun in turn one bringing out another caution with 11 to go. The red flag flew allowing crews to refuel.

Dietrich drove away on the restart. He reached slower traffic and Swindell closed. He jumped the cushion in turn four trying to lap Caleb Helms. He was able to make the pass and gain some distance again.

Swindell took a lap or so to pass Helms and finished 1.726 seconds back of Dietrich. Hodnett, 11th starter Lance Dewease and Wolfe completed the top five. All Star point leader Chad Kemenah, 22nd starter Brian Montieth, 13th starter Tim Shaffer, Mark Smith and Trey Starks rounded out the top 10.

Trey Starks set overall fast time with a lap of 16.515. Heat races for the 37-car field were won by Rico Abreu, Sammy Swindell, Anthony Macri and Mark Smith. Tyler Esh won the B-main. Wolfe won the first dash and Abreu the second.

Scott Ellerman won the 305 Sprint car feature over Austin Bishop, Bobby Butler, Jaremi Hanson, and Zach Newlin. Ellerman took the lead early from Butler and then held him off over the second half of the race. Dave Brown, Tyler Reeser, Eddie Wagner, Colby Dice and Darren Miller rounded out the top 10. Ellerman also clinched the Beerhill Cup Series for the 305's. A field off 45 cars were on hand.

Levan Machine & Truck Equipment Smoke on the Hill was a Huge Success. . . . .

LIKE FATHER, LIKE SON: FREDDIE RAHMER COLLECTS GRANDVIEW THUNDER CUP ALL STAR VICTORY

BECHTESLVILLE, PA (August 17, 2017) – In front of a jam-packed NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series crowd, Freddie Rahmer of Salfordville, PA became a third-generation winner at Grandview Speedway collecting the victory in the 3rd Annual Thunder Cup presented by Levan Machine and Truck Equipment.

“My Dad won here, My Grandfather won here, I can’t begin to tell you how much it means to win here,” an elated Freddie Rahmer said in victory lane.

Mark Smith of Sunbury, PA and Ryan Smith of Kunkletown, PA led the 26 car field to the green flag. Mark Smith pulled to the lead quickly with Ryan Smith close in tow, and Freddie Rahmer powering past Swindell into the third spot.

The leaders hit heavy lapped traffic on the sixth circuit around the one-third mile – with Mark Smith weaving in and out of cars, extending his lead over the pack. Smith’s sizable lead was short lived as traffic closed the gap between the top runners giving Ryan Smith the opportunity to pounce on Mark Smith.

A Lap 13 red flag flew for Hunter Mackison, who got upside down in turn 2, clearing the boiler plate and landing off the race track. The incident that retired Mackison and Brandon Rahmer.

Mark Smith charged back to the top spot when the race resumed, while Ryan Smith fought hard for the second spot with Freddie Rahmer. Rahmer dove to the inside of the race track crossing under Ryan Smith, but Smith battled back on the inside.

The yellow flag flew on lap 21 for Brandon Spithaler. During the yellow flag, the right rear tire of leader, Mark Smith’s machine went flat sending the No. M1 pit side. Fortunately for Smith, a caution on the restart allowed him to change the tire and rejoin the field.

Ryan Smith inherited the lead and charged to the top side of turn one on the restart, maintaining control on the top side of the one-third-mile speedway. Smith held the top spot for four circuits before Rahmer was able to shoot toward the inside of the race track completing the pass on lap 25.

It was all Rahmer for the balance of the 35-lap feature event, maintaining a lead of five-car-lengths when the checkered flag flew.

Ryan Smith would settle for the second position, Spring Grove, PA’s Greg Hodnett in the third spot, St. Helena, CA’s Rico Abreu in fourth, and Phoenixville, PA’s Brian Montieth rounding out the top five.

Alan Krimes of Denver, PA took home a $150 hard-charger bonus. Chad Kemenah set Quick time of the evening with a lap of 11.545. Heat races were won by Sammy Swindell, Dale Blaney, Ryan Smith, and Mark Smith.

Minersville, PA’s Mike Lisowski scored a hard fought victory in the 25-lap Sportsman feature, collecting a $1,300 winner’s share.

Nathan Mohr and Jack Butler led the 24-car field to the green flag with Butler jumping out to the early lead and dominating the first-half of the racing event. Lisowski – from a fifth place starting position – moved into third in the early stages of the event, and despite multi-car battles took the lead just passed the halfway point.

Lisowski’s main challenge came mid-way through the race when Jordan Henn powered from a 12th place starting position to battle for the top spot. No one could dethrone Lisowski, who claimed the victory.

Ryan Higgs came home in the second position, Louden Reimert in third, Joe Funk in fourth, and current Grandview weekly point leader, Brian Hirthler.

The NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series returns on Saturday, October 14 for Mods at the Madhouse. A Big-Block vs. Small-Block challenge event that also includes Sportsman, and MASS 305 Sprint Cars.

Round 3 of PA Midget Week: Thorson Repeats At The Clyde

Tim Buckwalter Makes Late Race Charge To Win 600 Speedweek Opener

By Barry Angstadt

Newmanstown, PA - Tanner Thorson proved once again that he is a master at negotiating the tight bullring known as Lanco's Clyde Martin Memorial Speedway. But it was flip by one of his rivals that may have provided the key to his victory in Tuesday night's USAC National Midget Championship event at the Newmanstown, Pa. oval.

In Round Three of PA Midget Week, Tyler Courtney and Justin Grant lined up on the front row for the start of the 40-lap A-Main. They went side by side through turns one and two, where Grant got so much bite that his right side grabbed the clay and the left side of his Clauson-Marshall No. 39 launched skyward. Grant twirled in mid air before coming back down on all four wheels and bringing out an immediate red flag.

That incident moved Thorson, the Minden, Nevada racer, up to the front row alongside Courtney. When the second attempt at a start went green, Thorson throttled his Keith Kunz-Curb-Agajanian Motorsports, JBL Audio No. 67 into the lead with teammate Spencer Bayston charging past Courtney and into the runner-up spot.

Broken Arrow, Oklahoma's Brady Bacon looked to have the fastest car in the first quarter of the race. Bacon sizzled by Courtney for third, then slipped past Bayston for second on lap five. Courtney, Bayston, and Shane Golobic swapped second, third, and fourth positions for the next several circuits as Bacon tried his best to cut into the sizeable lead built by Thorson. He was closing on the leader as they approached the back of the field, where traffic would have no doubt played into Bacon's favor, but a timely yellow with 17 tours complete worked to Thorson's advantage.

The caution cleared the track in front of the leaders, and Thorson took off once more as the green reappeared. While Bacon remained within striking distance, Thorson was definitely in control. On a restart with 19 to go, Courtney dashed past Bayston, the National Midget tour's point leader, to take over third position.

Thorson worked lapped traffic flawlessly over the final laps to produce a sequel to his 2016 victory at Clyde Martin. After a couple of near misses in the first two rounds of PA Midget Week, Thorson finally scored the "W", giving Keith Kunz and Toyota their 150th triumph together.

Bacon, Courtney, Bayston, and Golobic made up the rest of the top five as the checkered waved, with Path Valley winner Chad Boat finishing sixth. Tim Buckwalter was the best of the locals with a seventh place effort, while Tanner Carrick, Tony DiMattia, and Landon Simon completed the top ten.

Golobic recorded the Pro Source quick time of the night at 10.554-seconds in USAC Midget time trials. With 23 Midgets entering the event, qualifying heat victories went to Grant, Buckwalter, and Alex Bright.

Tuesday also served as opening night for the Hyper Racing 600 Sprint Speedweek series presented by SmallCarWeekly.com. And Tim Buckwalter showed everyone that he will be a force in the four-race Speedweek tour.

Jarid Kunkle grabbed the early lead over pole sitter Heath Hehnly on a restart with one lap in the books. Kunkle set the pace through lap 19 with Hehnly nipping at his heels and Buckwalter challenging a strong running Ryan Groff for third.

On a restart with 11 to go, Hehnly forged back in front of Kunkle as Buckwalter secured third and Bradley Brown ducked under Groff for the fourth spot. Another caution period with nine revolutions remaining provided the opportunity for Buckwalter to muscle his way past Kunkle for second as the race went back to green.

Buckwalter began hounding Hehnly for the top spot, pulling even with the leader on several occasions. Hehnly fended off the attacks until they headed off turn four with the white flag waving, when Buckwalter fired off the bottom of the corner to move in front. The Douglassville, Pa. wheel-twister led the final trip around the ultra-tacky, progressively banked oval to record his second wingless 600 win of the season at Clyde Martin Memorial Speedway.

Kunkle held on for third over Brown, Groff, and Chad Sandt. Jacob Severn, Kyle Spence (who had to come from the back of the pack twice during the 30-lapper), Kyle Lick, and Mike Rutherford rounded out the top ten at the finish.

Hyper Racing 600 Speedweek presented by SmallCarWeekly.com continues on Wednesday night, August 16, at the JeffreyHogueRealtor.com Action Track USA on the Kutztown Fairgrounds, with the third race set for Thursday, August 17, at Linda's Speedway in Jonestown, Pa. The final race of the series will be contested on Friday the 18th at Spirit Auto Center Speedway in Bridgeport, NJ.

Thursday's race at Linda's finds the wingless 600's joining the USAC National Midget Championship once again as PA Midget Week wraps up its four race tour in the Keystone State.

JUSTIN GRANT WINS FINAL LAP THRILLER IN USAC MIDGET MAIN Tyler Walton Takes Micros and Travis Horan Wins Extremes By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA…8/13/17

The annual Pennsylvania Midget Week kicked off Sunday night with the AMSOIL USAC Midget Sunoco /Insinger Fuels Showdown at Susquehanna Speedway where it was Justin Grant coming away with the thrilling win in the 30-lap feature.

Aboard the Clauson Marshall owned Midget, the Ione, CA driver used a last lap pass on Spencer Bayston to pick up his second win of the 2017 season on the USAC National tour.

Tanner Thorson led the first five laps of the USAC feature before Brady Bacon assumed the top spot and continued to set the pace until lap 22 when his great run came to an end after slowing on the speedway.

This turned the lead back to Thorson who had Bayston on his tailtank. Thorson would hold the lead until lap 28 when Bayston drove into the lead as the white flag flew but Grant would steal the win away on the final lap when Bayston and Thorson nearly took each other out while battling for the win.

Grant’s win was worth $3,500 as he took the checkered flag ahead of Thorson, Bayston, Shane Golobic and KSE Hard Charger Tanner Carrick, who started 14th.

Rounding out the top ten finishers were Chad Boat, Alex Bright, Holly Shelton, Brett Arndt and Trevor Kobylarz.

Tyler Courtney paced the 28-car field in time trials with a lap of 17.713 seconds while heat races were won by Courtney, Bacon and Thorson. Adam Pierson won the Last Chance Semi.

Tyler Walton led all 20 laps to score the win in the 600 Micro Sprint feature over Kameron Morral, Dexter Strawser, Zach Rhoads and Clayton Shaw.

Travis Horan picked up his first win of the season in the 20-lap Superior Homes Extreme Stock feature to become the fourth different winner this season.

Horan took the win over Patrick McClane, 12th starting Jeff Gill, point leader Alex Updegraff and Donnie Broderick.

Next weekend, August 19 and 20 will be another busy two night racing weekend at the York Haven oval as the Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman return to action joined by the Bernheisel Race Cars 358 Late Models, Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stocks and Superior Homes Extreme Stocks on Saturday, August 19.

Port Royal Has World Of Outlaws Late Models Saturday With 410 Sprints!!

Outlaws Make First Visit To Track Since 2008, Race In 50-lap 10K To Win Main

8/13/17

Port Royal – Port Royal Speedway will welcome back the World of Outlaws Late Models for a contest with their Pennsylvania Posse counterparts this Saturday night, August 19 at 7 pm.

A fantastic Saturday night dirt track doubleheader will include the Weikert’s Livestock 410 sprints also in competition.

Gates open at 4 pm.

Adult general admission is set at $27 with students ages 12 – 18 priced at $10.

It has been since 2008 that the World of Outlaws Late Models competed at historic Port Royal, when Clint Smith of Senoia, Georgia, took the victory.

Prior to that, Darrell Lanigan of Union, Kentucky, took a win in the only other Port Royal circuit visit in 2007.

Weekly late model competition sponsored by River Valley Builders at Port Royal this season has been unparalleled in intensity and action with only one driver able to repeat in the 14 races held.

Jeff Rine of Danville has taken four wins while single victories have gone to Trent Brenneman, Jason Covert, Rick Eckert, Coleby Frye, Austin Hubbard, Mike Lupfer, Rick Singleton, Gary Stuhler, Dylan Yoder and Jim Yoder.

Shermansdale’s Lupfer is currently leading the season point standings in a quest for a third track title.

Sheppard recently scored his list-leading 12th season victory on the circuit and leads series points by more than 250 markers over Chris Madden of Gray Court, South Carolina.

All Stars Return To Williams Grove For 35th Jack Gunn Memorial Friday

305 sprints also in action August 18

8/13/17

Mechanicsburg – The second appearance of the season at Williams Grove Speedway by the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions Sprint Cars is on tap this Friday night, August 18 for the 35th annual Jack Gunn Memorial.

Presented by Superior Plus Energy Services, the All Stars Gunn Memorial will offer the sprint car stars a $5,000 to win payday with a 30-lap feature.

The IMCA/PASS 305 sprints will share the card with the All Stars featuring a 7:30 start time this week.

Adult general admission is $20 for the racing program with youth ages 13 – 20 priced at $10.

Kids ages 12 and under are always admitted for free at Williams Grove Speedway!

The Williams Grove portion of the weekly 50/50 drawing will be donated to the RAACE Foundation.

Findlay, Ohio’s Chad Kemenah will lead the All Stars band into Williams Grove as the circuit point leader. Pennsylvania’s own Ryan Smith is chasing Kemenah for the title.

The All Stars will also bring names likeCaleb Armstrong, Max Stambaugh, Caleb Helms and others to the track to compete in a showdown with the Pennsylvania Posse sprint car stars.

Earlier this season at Williams Grove, Lance Dewease won an April visit by the All Stars to contest the Tommy Hinnershitz Classic.

In the years since the first All Stars show at Williams Grove back in 1970, the local drivers have never allowed a touring All Star to claim victory at Williams Grove.

And they are hoping to keep that record intact yet again when the rivalry renews on Friday night.

If the Posse stars can again successfully defend their turf against the All Stars in 2017, they will have pushed their record to a perfect 32 and 0.

The Jack Gunn Memorial has been run in honor of the late Promoter Of The Year every year since 1983.

Gunn was nationally recognized in 1979 as Promoter Of The Year and not only guided ovals like Williams Grove to worldwide fame but who also at times during his career held the reigns of tracks like Penn National, Selinsgrove and Hagerstown, Md.

Over the years only the sports most elite drivers have driven to victory in the prestigious event.

Names like Bobby Allen, Doug Wolfgang, Dave Blaney, Kenny Jacobs, Don Kreitz Jr., Frankie Kerr, Lance Dewease, Stevie Smith, Fred Rahmer, Greg Hodnett and Daryn Pittman all dot the event win list.

Brian Montieth is the defending Gunn Memorial champion.

This week’s race will be another date in the 2017 Hoosier Diamond Series.

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY

12 August 2017 By Michael Batz

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY WINS RACE WITH WEATHER SATURDAY! TOMECECK, BERNHEISEL, SLANKER AND ZOOK SCORE VICTORIES AND SELINSGROVE FORD BONUS MONEY!

SELINSGROVE, Pa. -- The Super Late Models were competing in two different championship races on Saturday night at Selinsgrove Speedway. Drivers were challenging for the Jeff’s Auto Body and Recycling Selinsgrove Speedway title as well as continuing the charge for the Moon Shine Camo Route 35 challenge series. Neither championship was separated by more 25 points in the top three spots going into the night.

Bryan Bernheisel started from the front row and although he was challenged a few times throughout the event, it was a second straight victory for “Kid Lazer”.

Moon Shine Camo Route 35 challenge series point leader Colby Frye worked through lap traffic well gaining a couple spots to second, but never got in a position to challenge the race leader before a caution flag was thrown on lap 14.

The restart allowed Bernheisel to show some strength as he broke away from second place Frye and third place Chad Hollenbeck.

The yellow flag was back out a few laps later and this time Hollenbeck was able to take second from Frye. Bernheisel used that opportunity to pull away again.

The yellow was thrown for the final time on lap 20. Hollenbeck and Frye waged another battle for the second spot, but Frye slid back outside the top three. Bernheisel had set sail to his second win in a row in the 25-lap, $2,500-to-win feature followed by Hollenbeck and Dylan Yoder. Hayes Mattern and Frye crossed the line fourth and fifth.

Tony Adams recovered from an early race accident to run sixth followed by Steve Campbell, Meade Hahn, Kenny Trevitz, and Dave Stamm.

Heat races for the Late Models were won by Bernheisel, Frye, and Adams.

Eric Tomecek started from the pole position and admitted that a good starting spot in the Untied Racing Club’s appearance at Selinsgrove Speedway on Saturday played a part in a victory; however, it was not all an easy drive. A tricky race track pushed Tomecek to his limits as he raced the speedway and cut his way through lap traffic for the $2,500 win.

The battling was behind Tomecek for the second and third spots. Adam Carberry, Cody Keller, and Curt Michael traded the second spot at times over the 25-lap feature before Keller grabbed it for good. Jason Shultz rounded out the top three finishers from his 18th starting spot. Michael and Carberry were fourth and fifth.

Sixth through tenth in the finishing order were Derek Locke, Larry Kelleher, Davie Franek, Chad Layton, and Josh Weller.

Tomecek, Layton, and Nate Snyder won the heat races for the 360 Sprint Cars.

In an effort to take a big step toward his first Selinsgrove Speedway championship, Tommy Slanker was cautiously aggressive on Saturday night. Slanker made the pass of race leader Brandon Moser on lap five.

Slanker led the rest of the way to lock down his sixth win of the season. Moser, Kyle Bachman, Dustin Snook, and Shaun Lawton were the top five finishers. AJ Hoffman, Cory Long, John Schoch, Johnny Bouse, and Bill Conrad were the top ten finishers.

Bachman and Slanker crossed the line first in heat races on Saturday night.

Keith Bissinger led the early laps of the Roadrunner feature event before Ryan Zook made a late race pass to win his first Roadrunner feature at the track.

Zook had to maneuver around some lap traffic before the checkered flag. Bissinger got close but settled for a second place finish. Brian Johnson closed out the podium finishers.

Bob Bussey and Will Brunson were the top five.

Tom Underwood led the sixth through tenth place finishers. Behind Underwood were Chase Kapner, Tom Brunson, Brian Mabus, and Kyle Kissinger.

Roadrunner heats were won by Brian Johnson and Keith Bissinger.

Saturday night’s racing program was sponsored by Selinsgrove Ford.

Next Saturday, Aug. 19, Selinsgrove Speedway will offer racing from the 360 Sprint Cars, 305 Sprint Cars, Pro Stocks, and the rescheduled Collier Paving and Construction Roadrunner 20. The Penn Mar Vintage Race Cars will also be on hand.

General Admission will be $12 and kids (12-17) $7. 11 and under will be free for the show starting at 7:30.

At the end of the year, $1,000 will go to three drivers for their season-long support of the series.

LEVAN MACHINE & TRUCK EQUIPMENT PRESENT SMOKE ON THE HILL AT GRANDVIEW THURSDAY, AUGUST 17

RYAN SMITH STILL SEARCHING FOR FIRST THUNDER ON THE HILL WIN, JOINED BY TONY STEWART & RICO ABREU

BECTHELSVILLE, PA (August 8, 2017) – The old saying goes ‘there are plenty of fish in the sea’ – but for 29-year-old 410 Sprint Car ace, Ryan Smith, Grandview Speedway is the one that continues to get away.

Smith’s next shot comes on Thursday, August 17 when NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series presents Tony Stewart’s Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions 410 Sprint Cars at Grandview Speedway. The nationally touring series will join Grandview’s popular Sportsman division for a full night of racing excitement at the 3rd Annual Thunder Cup presented by Levan Machine and Equipment.

“We got lucky, Ryan Smith had a better car than I did,” Speedweek event winner and NASCAR driver Kyle Larson explained in victory lane. Larson dominated the early part of Speedweek competition, but it was Smith who stole the lead – much to the delight of the jam-packed Grandview Speedway – before clipping the outside wall and violently flipping into turn 3.

The PA Speedweek event marked the third consecutive NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill event that saw Smith suffer misfortune while leading.

“The Kunkletown Kid” comes back into Grandview Speedway stronger than ever. He currently sits second in the Arctic Cat All-Star Circuit of Champions series standings and is fresh off a victory at the All Stars event at New York’s Outlaw Speedway.

The best-of-the-best of competition will be on hand on Thursday, August 17 with drivers like Greg Hodnett, Danny Dietrich, Lucas Wolfe, Dale Blaney and Freddie Rahmer – all winners at area race tracks this season; along with All Star standouts Chad Kemenah, Tim Shaffer, Cole Duncan, and Carson Macedo all expected to be on hand; throw in one of the nation’s most popular drivers with Rutherford, CA’s Rico Abreu and action from three-time NASCAR Champion Tony Stewart – and you have one of the strongest fields of the All-Star season.

Grandview’s popular Sportsman division joins the card with a 25-Lap, $1,300-to-win event that will entice racers from all over the region. Some of the pre-entries include Brad Grim, Matt Stangle, Craig Whitmoyer, Mike Lisowski, Kenny Gilmore, Brian Hirthler, TJ Lilly, Brad Arnold and Ken Eckert Jr just to name a few.

Time Trials for the 410 Sprint Cars will open the show on Thursday, August 17 at 7:30 PM. The pit gates will open at 2:30 PM and the Grandstands will open at 5:00 PM. Fans can get up-close to the drivers and their mighty machines with the Low Down and Dirty Meet and Greet kicking off at 5:00 PM.

General Admission Adult tickets are $30, Children ages 6-11 are $10, and Kids under 6 are Free of charge! Pit admission is $35, and no license is required.

Advance tickets are available until Wednesday, August 16 by calling 443-513-4456. Please provide your name, phone number and the number of tickets you will need. Tickets may be paid for and picked up on race night at the Will-Call window after 4 PM. Advance ticket holders may enter the grandstands at 4:30 PM, 30 minutes before the opening of the box office.

Fans following the All Star Circuit of Champions may camp at the Speedway. Campers are asked to park in the turn 4 parking area, there are no hook-ups available, and no box camping allowed. Track officials ask that all fires be contained. There is no fee for camping.

SATURDAY, AUGUST 5, 2017 SUSQUEHANNA SPEEDWAY RACE RESULTS

SCOTT DELLINGER RACES TO SECOND SUSQUEHANNA WIN Weaver and Merkel Double Late Model Winners; Geesaman Gets Street Stock Win By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA…8/5/17 Scott Dellinger held off several late race challenges from Russ Mitten to capture his second win of the season in the 25-lap Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman feature Saturday night at Susquehanna Speedway.

Sean Merkel and Justin Weaver both recorded first career Susquehanna wins in the double Bernheisel Race Cars 358 Late Model features while Jasen Geesaman raced to his first win of the season in Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stock action.

Gregg Foster shot from his fifth starting spot to take command of the Super Sportsman feature with one lap complete.

While Foster checked out from the field, Davey Walsh, eighth starting Dellinger and seventh starting Mitten were working their way to the front.

Foster’s bid for a win ended when his car went up in smoke to bring out the caution with ten laps complete.

Walsh would lead the next lap but it was Dellinger pushing his Dellinger Auto Body, Reesers Soft Serve Ice Cream, AAI Recycling, G.A. Smith Towing No. 30 past Walsh to lead lap 12.

While Dellinger began to stretch his lead, Walsh, Mitten, Mike Enders and 13th starter Jay Fannasy were in a heated battle for top five spots.

A caution on lap 18 for a spin by Nate Young set up another battle for the lead as Mitten hung tough with Dellinger for several laps before Dellinger would drive off only to see a caution wave on the final lap for a spin by Justin Williams.

Dellinger, of Lewisberry was up to the challenge on the restart keeping Mitten at bay to pick up his fourth career Susquehanna win and moved to within 95 points of Kenny Edkin for the point lead.

Mitten held on for second with 12th starter and last week’s winner Tony Jackson coming home third ahead of Enders and Fannasy with Miller racing back to sixth over Frankie Herr, Rich Eichelberger, Walsh and Edkin, who was driving the Russ Lebo owned car after his own No. 75 suffered mechanical issues during his heat race.

Miller earned the Artwerks Hard Charger award after starting 21st.

Heats for the 22 Sportsman were won by Timmie Barrick, Tom Wyckoff and Foster.

Williamsport, MD driver Justin Weaver invaded Susquehanna for Bernheisel Race Cars 358 Late Model competition and left with his first career win after winning the regularly scheduled 25 lap feature.

Weaver started fifth and took control on lap nine and drove away from the field to become the eighth different winner this season.

Track point leader Randy Christine, Jr., was second over Sean Merkel, Travis Mease and 12th starter JR Rodriquez with Eric Hohol, Justin Ehrhart, Sam Rial, Devin Frey and Drew Weisser completing the top ten finishers. Tim Murphy finished 11th and was the Artwerks Hard Charger after starting 20th.

Merkel, of Boyertown dominated the makeup BRC 358 Late Model feature that was rained out back on July 5 as he kept Christine at bay during the entire distance as he also scored his first career track win over Christine, Ehrhart, Rial and Rodriguez with Matt Murphy, Hohol, Dave Latsha, Ben Whitaker and Jake Moser finished out the top ten.

Heats for the 22 BRC Late Models went to Christine, Rodriguez and Chase Billet.

Jonestown driver Jasen Geesaman came out on top of a thrilling Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stock feature to become the 10th different winner this season.

Starting eighth, Geesaman grabbed the lead from Jimmy Combs on lap 19 and held on during a final lap caution to score the win.

Combs, Matt Adams, Craig Morgan and Ryan Smith were the top five finishers trailed by Jim Palm, Bob Scott, Jr., Kevin Sigler, Joey Hoffer and Kory Sites. Silger won the Pizza Shop of Etters Hard Charger after starting 21st.

Heats for the 30 Street Stocks went to Geesaman, Hoffer and Mike Potts with Randy Zechman winning the consolation.

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY
 

 5 August 2017
By Michael Batz

HEIMBACH RETURNS TO SELINSGROVE TO WIN THIRD FIRECRACKER RACE FOR 360 SPRINT CARS;
BERNHEISEL MAKES LATE-RACE PASS FOR SECOND LATE MODEL WIN OF SEASON;
MILLER SCORES ECONO LATE MODEL FEATURE; LAWTON TAKES PRO STOCK CHECKERS

SELINSGROVE, Pa. -- Saturday was the rescheduled Firecracker 30 for the 360 Sprint Cars from July 1 at Selinsgrove Speedway. Coming into the night no driver had won the event more than two times. Hometown driver Blane Heimbach was in search of his third win when he drove by early race leader Jason Shultz on lap four of the 30-lap, $3,000-to-win event.

Shultz immediately began to pressure Heimbach as he tried to take the spot back. That pressure was short lived as Heimbach pulled away from Shultz and Selinsgrove Speedway point leader Davie Franek. By the halfway mark Heimbach’s lead was comfortable, but he was working into lap traffic.

Shultz wasted no time beginning his charge back to the rear bumper of the race leader’s car. As Heimbach tiptoed his way through lap traffic Shultz quickly made up ground. The leaders, although battling each other, extended their lead over Franek to nearly half the race track.

The blistering pace continued as Shultz made his best bid for the win diving to the inside of a lap car and Heimbach at the same time. Heimbach was able to power around on the top back into the top spot with three laps left. Shultz kept within striking distance to the race leader, but never got close enough to take the lead away from Heimbach as he drove to his third win in the Firecracker 30.

“We haven’t been very good this year, but this is where I started so it feels good to come here and get a win at a track I’ve run so many laps on,” said Heimbach in victory lane. Heimbach was a contender for the National Open win a week ago before he had a mechanical failure sideline him with five laps to go.

Shultz settled for second. Mark Smith closed out the podium finishers after starting mid-pack. Davie Franek and Eric Tomecek were the top five finishers.

Derek Locke crossed the line in sixth followed by Chad Layton, Adam Carberry, Michael Walter, and Nate Snyder.

Shultz and Heimbach won heat races for the 360 Sprint Cars.

Hayes Mattern certainly looked like the car to beat in the Late Models on Saturday night. Mattern used a long green flag run to pull a big lead over the field. As the run continued on, Bryan Bernheisel began to show some muscle as well as he closed in on the race leader.

Once again as lap traffic covered much of the speedway in front of the leaders, Bernheisel continued the pressure. Bernheisel stayed loyal to the inside line while Mattern used the high side of the race track. Mattern had the advantage as many of the lap cars ran the inside of the race track.

Bernheisel threw a slide job on Mattern on lap 19 to take the top spot away, just before a yellow flag came out.

Bernheisel used a great restart to break away from the field on his way to his second win of the season. Mattern and Gene Knaub were the top three finishers. Donnie Schick was fourth followed by Tony Adams. Adams was caught up in a first lap wreck, but recovered to finish fifth and salvage a good point night in the championship race.

Jim Yoder was sixth just ahead of point leader Steve Campbell. Dave Stamm, Meade Hahn, and Ken Yoder were the top ten finishers.

Tony Adams and Andrew Yoder took checkered flags in heat races for the Late Models.

Shaun Miller almost won the first Econo Late Model race of the season at Selinsgrove Speedway in June, but he was passed late in the race for the win. Saturday night had a similar feel when Tim Krape, the winner at the track last weekend, took the top spot off a restart with only five laps to go. Miller had lead every lap up until that point.

Krape’s car seemed very fast. In racing sometimes that’s when things go wrong, and in this case that is what happened. With five to go Krape’s car slowed to the infield.

Miller was back into the race lead with Todd Snook right there. Miller opened the lead up a little bit to give himself some breathing room over the last few laps on his way to his eighth career Selinsgrove Speedway victory. It was Miller’s first Econo Late Model win to go with his seven wins in the Pro Stocks.

Snook was second ahead of JR Toner, Eric Irvin, and Andrew Stotler. Sixth through tenth spots went to Tim Fedder, Cahse Bowsman, Ken Yoder, Andrew Shoop, and Doug Ishler.

Econo Late Model heat races were won by JR Toner and Todd Snook.

Ken Yoder competed in both Late Model divisions on Saturday night scoring a top ten in both.

The night cap belonged to the Pro Stocks and they did not disappoint. Dustin Snook slid into the race lead after an early race yellow flag. Snook set sail away from the rest of the field.

Snook’s lead looked like it was going to be enough to secure his second win of the season. Shaun Lawton had other ideas. Lawton was using a line no one else was around the outside of the speedway and began to close in on the race leader.

Lawton caught Snook and then made the pass for the top spot on lap 13. Right after Lawton took the race lead the yellow flag was displayed to the field. Snook would have another shot to take the lead back on the restart.

Lawton played the restart perfect and held off Snook for his third win of the season. Snook was second with Kyle Bachman third. Tommy Slanker came back from a wreck early on to finish fourth and AJ Hoffman was fifth.

Brandon Moser came across the line sixth being chased by Bill Conrad, Dan Condo, John Schoch, and Nate Stroup.

Hoffman and Snook locked down heat wins in the Pro Stocks.

Next Saturday the excitement will start before anyone ever gets to Selinsgrove Speedway. The annual Market Street Race Car Parade, starting the Selinsgrove Ford dealership, will take place at 4 p.m. When the fans and drivers arrive at the speedway it will be Selinsgrove Ford Night with the United Racing Club 360 Sprint Cars in a $2,500 to win event. Also the Super Late Models take the next step in crowing the Moon Shine Camo Route 35 Challenge series champion. That race will also pay $2,500 to win. The Pro Stocks and Roadrunners are on the card as well.

Zearfoss Strikes For Second Port Royal Win Of Season, Rine Gets Fourth In Lates

Miller scores 305 sprints and Imes claims xtreme stocks

8/5/17

Port Royal – Brock Zearfoss of Jonestown struck for his second Port Royal Speedway 410 sprint car win of the year on Saturday night, worth $3,200.

In the 25-lap super late model main, Danville’s Jeff Rine raced to his fourth win of the year, pushing himself up the all-time win list to a total of 17 at the oval.

And in the 305 sprint main, Jeff Miller of Huntingdon scored for the second time this season while Kevin Imes won the xtreme stock feature.

Second starter Trenton Sheaffer took the lead at the start of the 25-lap super sprint car main with Jared Esh and AJ Flick giving chase.

Sheaffer would set the race pace ahead of Esh for the first six laps before the only caution flag of the event unfurled for a Flick flat tire.

The restart placed sixth starter Zearfoss in second with Esh third and Lucas Wolfe in fourth.

Zearfoss came to second on the fifth tour after a big move to thwart Lucas Wolfe, who had been to his inside for position in the third corner only to see Zearfoss slam the door to keep him behind.

Sheaffer failed to succumb to Zearfoss when action resumed but Zearfoss proved too much to handle as he buzzed the top time after time until finally getting around for the lead in the fourth turn with 15 laps to go.

Wolfe raced into second with 12 laps to go and tried to close on the leader but to no avail, even as Zearfoss worked traffic beginning on lap 16.

Zearfoss took his third career oval victory by 2.402 seconds ahead of Wolfe followed by Kody Lehman, who got by Sheaffer for third during the last two laps.

Sheaffer was fourth with point leader Dylan Cisney in fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to TJ Stutts, Jared Esh, Steve Buckwalter, Logan Wagner and Mike Wagner.

Twin heats went to Cisney and Buckwalter.

Second starter Tim Wilson took control at the start of 25-lap late model feature over Derrick Casner.

The only caution of the race occurred with two laps down, placing third starter Mike Lupfer in second followed by Casner, sixth starter Coleby Frye and fifth starter Rine.

Both Frye and Rine disposed of Casner at the new green and for the next several laps, Frye raced with Lupfer for second as Rine chomped at the bit to get through both of them for second.

Repeatedly, Rine attempted to pull the trigger on the pair only to see the opening he was eyeing close up as the pair throttled for second.

Frye finally took second with seven away and attempted to close on leader Wilson.

Meanwhile, with the logjam for second now opened up, Rine lined up both Lupfer and Frye for a pass, with he made rather handily on the ninth tour before immediately closing on Wilson for the top spot.

Rine went out front with 15 laps to go and entered the rear of the field with 10 laps to go before cruising to a 4.073 second victory over Frye with Wilson in third followed by Lupfer and Chad Hollenbeck.

Sixth through 10th went to Andy Haus, Nick Dickson, Derrick Casner, Jason Schmidt and Kenny Moreland.

Twin heats went to Casner and Frye.

A 44-car field of 305 sprints competed for laurels with polesitter Nick Sweigart leading the first six laps before fourth starter Jeff Miller moved into contention.

Miller and Sweigart raced together for control for three laps before Miller took command on the eighth loop.

Sweigart then blew a tire and clouted the first turn wall on the 10th lap, taking himself out of contention.

Miller blasted handily to the victory by 1.618 seconds ahead of Darren Miller.

Zach Newlin ended up third followed by Dave Grube and Kyle Ganoe.

Sixth through 10th went to Kassidy Kreitz, Tyler Reeser, Drew Ritchey, Scott Ellerman and Cale Reigle.

Four heats went to Ritchey, Kreitz, Miller and Miller with twin consolations going to Kyle Smith and Jonathan Jones.

Walt Peters led the first lap of the xtreme stock main before Ryan Zook took over.

Zook led only two laps before giving way to Herm Renninger took over, trying to score for the third time this season.

Renninger lost power one lap shy of the finish, handing the lead over to Kevin Imes who took the win.

Bill Powell was second followed by Walt Peters, Josh Bender and Michael Smith.

Twin heats went to Powell and Renninger.

FREDDIE RAHMER WINS WILD 410 SPRINT CAR FEATURE AT LINCOLN SPEEDWAY;

Shearer 12th different winner in 15 races in 358 sprints; Charlie Summers takes Dizzy Dean Memorial in Classic Cars

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA – August 5, 2017 – Freddie Rahmer has struggled at Lincoln this year, but he had ‘em covered in scoring his second win of the year in the 25-lap feature for 410 sprint cars in the Pigeon Hills Saturday night.

“I just want to win,” said Rahmer upon exiting his Leffler Energy/Miller Brothers Chevrolet/Trans East Equipment #51 in victory lane, “I want more nights like tonight.”

Saturday was night number-one of the Lincoln/Susquehanna/Trail-Way tri-track “Shootout,” and a redraw for the front 12 cars placed Rahmer sixth for the start. He drove into the top five by the end of the second lap and passed Chad Trout for fourth a lap later. In the meantime, polesitter Gerard McIntyre, Jr. was leading the field.

Rahmer hung in fourth for the next 16 laps while Chase Dietz and Glenndon Forsythe battled for position chasing McIntyre for the race lead.

Dietz struck both the turn two and turn four walls several times and slowed on lap 19, just before the red flag waved for a four-car tangle in turns one and two that saw Scott Fisher roll onto his side. Dietz went to the pits during the red and did not return.

On the subsequent restart, Rahmer and Montieth lined up second and third, with Forsythe now fourth.

That led to a three-car battle for the lead, with Rahmer driving under McIntyre when McIntyre hopped the cushion in turn four of the 19th lap, allowing both Rahmer and Montieth to slip by. A caution flag flew a lap later, as the side panel on the front wing of Montieth became dislodged and landed on the backstretch. McIntyre slid back in front of Montieth on the restart and Montieth wrestled with his ill-handling car. Forsythe reclaimed third from Montieth on lap 23.

“They started to get free and I was waiting on lapped traffic,” said Rahmer, “I made my move when I had to on that restart. We’ve been fast at the Grove and on the big tracks, but we’ve struggled here a little. I need to stop worrying about the car and just drive.”

Crossing fifth behind Rahmer, McIntyre, Forsythe, and Montieth was ninth-starting Cory Haas, with Jim Siegel, Alan Krimes, Trout, Brandon Rahmer, and Tim Wagaman finishing sixth through tenth.

Heats for the 26 “410” Sprinters were won by Tyler Ross, Haas, and Montieth, with Tim Glatfelter winning the consolation.

Brent Shearer raced to his first win of the year and second career Lincoln win in the 20-lap “358” sprint car feature. He started sixth and caught polesitter and race-long leader Kody Hartlaub for the top spot on lap 13. He led the rest of the way, with 11th-starting Doug Hammaker coming on strong at the end to finish second. Hartlaub settled for third, followed by point leader Adrian Shaffer and Cody Fletcher.

Heats for the 27 “358” Sprinters were won by Todd Gracey, Jordan Givler, and Fletcher, with Steve Wilbur winning the consolation.

Charlie Summers was the winner of the 20-lap Dizzy Dean Memorial for Classic Cars. Summers started fourth, grabbed the lead from polesitter and race-long leader Neal Reamer on lap 13, and held Reamer off over the final seven laps.

Third through fifth were Wes Brown, Joe Brown, and Ron Grove.

Heats for the 12 Classic Racing Series cars were won by Joe Brown and Reamer.

Lincoln is back in action next Saturday night, August 12th, with McSHERRYSTOWN MOOSE LODGE #720 NIGHT featuring the 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints, and All-American Outlaws. Time trials for the 410 sprinters will get underway at 7:30 PM. Gates will open at 5:30 PM.

STEVE OWINGS STORMS TO 15TH CAREER TRAIL-WAY 358 SPRINT CAR WIN

Glass, Chaney and Stremmel Other Friday Night Winners

HANOVER, PA (8/4/2017) – “I love it here. If you ain’t having fun here, you just ain’t having fun.”

So quipped Westminster, Maryland’s Steve Owings after holding off Isaac Sneeringer in an exciting 25-lap Hoosier Tire Mid Atlantic 358 Sprint Car feature at Trail-Way Speedway.

Owings, who started fifth, was able to pass polesitter Bradley Howard by lap three. Sneeringer was able to maintain a several car lengths lead until lapped traffic became a factor at the half-way point. Owings was able to make the race-winning pass on the backstretch, coming to lap 14.

“I was trying to run the top but there wasn’t a whole lot up there so I had to run around the bottom,” said Owings after exiting his B&D Truck Hoist/Westminster Lawn/Westminster Transmission/Valentine Motorsports #35 in victory lane, “But like I said it worked out and we stayed right there with him. When he went down low, those [lapped] cars were in the middle and I was up high. I knew I was good. All I had to do was make sure he slid up a little bit.”

“You know, it’s experience. He’s [Sneeringer] a heck of a racer. But it feels good to put the #35 in victory lane.”

Following Owings across the line were Sneeringer, Joe Trone Jr., hard charger Mike Bittinger and Zach Euculano.

Qualifiers for the 358 Sprint Cars were won by Owings and Trone Jr.

Zachary Glass scored the 20-lap Mason Dixon 270 Micro Sprint feature after starting on the pole and leading every lap. It was Glass’ first career Trail-Way 270 micro sprint win.

Completing the top five were Chad Myers, current point leader Mike Rutherford, Levi Peck and Brian Marriott.

Heats for the 22 270 micro sprints were won by Rutherford and Myers.

Outside front row starter Mason Chaney led the entire 20-lap ServiceMaster Clean Central PA Legends feature to score his third win of 2017 at Trail-Way Speedway.

Travis McClelland, Bill Diehl, Hayden Pascoe and Scott Houdeshell completed the top five.

Heats for the 24 Legends were won by Houdeshell and Chris McKinney.

Third starting Jeremy Stremmel scored his 10th career Street Stock feature win at Trail-Way Speedway. Stremmel led the entire 20-lap feature race while holding off the challenges of current point leader, Brian Walls. Walls attempted one final dive into turns three and four, but Stremmel came away victorious.

Following Stremmel and Walls across the line were Travis Leh, Michael Goodwin and Aaron Beard.

Heats for the Street Stocks were won by Stremmel and Leh.

Next Friday, August 11, Trail-Way swings back into action with the Trone Outdoor 358 Sprint Car Championship race, paying $1,200 to win, along with the 600 Micro Sprints, Mason Dixon 270 Micro Sprints and the Limited Stocks. Gates open at 5:30 p.m., with heats scheduled to begin at 7:45 p.m.

HODNETT SCORES SELINSGROVE 360 SPRINT CAR OPEN VICTORY

SELINSGROVE, Pa. -- Greg Hodnett added his name to a prominent list of winners of the Mach 1 Chassis National Open for 360 sprint cars Sunday night at Selinsgrove Speedway. Hodnett drew the number one to start from the pole of the 30 lap Sprint Car spectacular.

Hodnett bolted into the race lead and left prelim night winner Mark Smith to battle with Jason Shultz for the runner up spot. Blane Heimbach came from his sixth starting spot to work by Shultz for third and then soon by Smith by the second spot.

By lap 14 Smith and Heimbach’s battle for second had closed in on Hodnett in lap traffic. A red flag for Nate Snyder stopped the race and gave Hodnett the open race track once again.

On the restart Heimbach was able to pull away from Smith and focus on the race leader. Hodnett’s lead began to shrink again when he caught the tail of the field on lap 24. By that time Curt Michael had climbed into the top five as well.

The yellow flag again unfurled on lap 25 ending the race for the lead. Heimbach’s number 12 had stopped on the home stretch ending his bid for the National Open crown.

With five to go Mark Smith would need to make his move quick on the restart. Smith kept the pace of the race leader for the next lap before Hodnett again extended the advantage. Michael was now by Shultz and on Smith’s tail for second.

Hodnett closed out the final laps of the 17th annual running of the National Open to take the $6,000 payday.

Smith was second followed on the podium by Michael.

Jason Shutlz and Davie Franek were the rest of the top five finishers. Lucas Wolfe was sixth followed by TJ Stutts, Steve Collins, Chad Layton, and Robbie Stillwagon.

Jeff Stere presented a hard charger award that went to Layton who came from 20th to finish in ninth.

Shutlz, Heimbach, and Billy VanInwegen won heat race for the 360 Sprint Cars while Larry Kelleher took the B-main victory.

The National Open wouldn’t have been possible without the help of the United Racing Club and Mach 1 Chassis. Title sponsor Mach 1 Chassis, located at 10 North Frederick Street in Mechanicsburg, engineers and builds race car chassis that are known for safety, strength, durability, and performance. In addition to chassis fabrication and repair, Mach 1 Chassis also manufactures front and rear bumpers, nerf bars, front axles, wing posts, and wing trees.

Dave Grube was in a race long battle with Cale Reigle during the 305 Sprint Car main event. Reigle took over the top spot from Grube on lap eight. Grube then entered into a tight battle with Tyler Resser for the second spot. Resser was able to grab the spot before Grube took it back.

The battle for second proved that much more important when the rear axel broke on Reigel’s number 99 on lap 14. It was the first and only caution flag of the race.

On the restart Grube had pressure right away from Reeser. Reeser continued to try to use the momentum of the outside line for the remaining laps to take the race lead away. Grube on the other hand stayed loyal to the inside line.

Although Reeser got very close on the last two laps, he was never able to pass Grube. Grube’s checkered flag was his first at the speedway.

Reeser was second with Zach Newlin, Jeremi Hanson, and Austin Bishop rounding out the top five finishers.

Sixth through tenth in the finishing order went to Ken Duke, Nathan Gramley, Jared Zionkowski, Andrew Hake, and Dave Graber.

Newlin and Hake took heat race victory in the 305 Sprint Cars.

The Econo Late Model inversion was a four for the feature event. Tim Krape picked the inversion and put himself fourth to start the feature in what he called a dismal year of racing. He thought maybe the pill draw was going to just be another part of his bad luck season.

Tim Fedder had a similar idea after taking the race lead from Troy Miller on the opening lap. Fedder continued to lead while Krape worked his way to second.

Krape would close on the race leader and then fall off again over the next 13 laps. When the two to go sign was given Fedder had begun to race in lap traffic.

Fedder tried to be a little more conservative around the slower cars and that allowed Krape to muscle the race lead away on the final lap going down the back stretch. There was not enough time for Fedder to recover and take the race lead back.

Krape lead only one lap of the main event but it was the most important one. Fedder was second followed across the line by Todd Snook, JR Toner, and Shaun Miller.

Andrew Stotler, Andrew Yoder, Troy Miller, Jason Schmidt, and Jason Davis closed out the top ten finishers. Krape and Toner won heat races.

SMITH SMASHES 360 SPRINT CAR RECORD WITH OPEN PRELIM WIN SATURDAY; RINE MAKES LATE-RACE PASS FOR 106th CAREER LATE MODEL VICTORY; SLANKER SCORES FIFTH OF SEASON IN PRO STOCK THRILLER

SELINSGROVE, PA. -- Mark Smith of Sunbury started off the Mach 1 Chassis National Open weekend with a dominating performance in the 360 Sprint Cars. Smith won the 25-lap preliminary event worth $3,000 and set a new track record for the distance in 7:54.603. Smith’s new record was more than 15 seconds faster than the standing record coming into the night. The win also locks Smith into the feature event for this Sunday night’s 17th Annual National Open Finale.

Smith took the top spot on lap three from Steve Collins in the nonstop feature event. Davie Franek moved to second on lap ten and began to try to close the gap on Smith. The lead would only shrink for a small time before Smith drove back away to the five second advantage he had at the end of the event.

Franek came home second while Cody Keller, Nate Snyder, and Steve Collins were the top five game. Curt Michael was sixth followed by Robbie Stillwagon, Josh Weller, Jason Schultz, and Ryan Kissinger. Heat races for the 360 Sprint Cars were won by Michalski, Franek, Eric Tomecek, while Chris Coyle won the B-Main.

Donnie Schick led the first half of the Jeff’s Auto Body and Recycling Center Super Late Model feature. Schick had opened up an impressive lead over Jeff Rine once Rine got to second on lap ten. Rine then began to close the gap on Schick. Schick’s straightaway lead dwindled over the next ten laps before Rine caught and passed Shick.

A yellow flag gave Shick a second chance, but Rine would complete the pass after the restart to take the lead away for second time. Rine led the rest of the way for his 106th career Selinsgrove Speedway win. Rine took the checkered flag over Schick, Bryan Bernheisel, Gene Kanub, and Tony Adams. Hayes Mattern was the sixth car across the line with Steve Campbell, Kenny Treveitz, Luke Hoffner, and Dan Green the top ten.

Bernheisel and Rine won the heat races for the Late Models.

Jake Buck brought the A&A Auto Store Pro Stock feature to the green flag on Saturday night. Shaun Lawton was able to wrestle the top spot away from Buck to lead lap number two. Once out front it looked like Lawton was going to drive to his third win of the season.

A yellow on a lap five restart reset the field nose to tail and allowed point leader Tommy Slanker to go to work. Slanker restarted fourth, but soon went past runner up Kyle Bachman to give chase to Lawton. On lap eight Slanker made an outside move around Lawton to secure the lead for good. Slanker drove to his fifth win of the season.

Lawton, Bachman, Dustin Snook, and AJ Stroup were the top five finishers. Johnny Bouse crossed the line in sixth followed by Brandon Moser, Jake Buck, Peanut Heintzelman, and John Schoch. Heat races for the Pro Stocks were won by Bachman and Lawton.

This Sunday, July 30, will be the Mach 1 Chassis 360 Sprint Car National Open. The 17th annual running of the event will pay $6,000 to win. The PASS 305 Sprint Cars and Econo Late Models will also be in action. Racing at 7:30. General Admission will be $15 with students paying $8. Kids 11 years of age and younger will be admitted FREE.

Next Saturday, Aug. 5, the speedway kicks off the final full month of racing this season with the Sunbury Eagles Club Night and the Eastern Museum of Motor on-hand for the rescheduled Firecracker 30 for the 360 Sprint Cars plus Super Late Models, Pro Stocks, and Econo Late Models.

SUSQUEHANNA SPEEDWAY RACE RESULTS

TONY JACKSON ENDS DRY SLUMP AT SUSQUEHANNA
Hoffer, Pierson, Updegraff and Murphy Other Saturday Winners
By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA…7/29/17
Tony Jackson and his Clair “Tripp” Finkenbinder owned team have been fast all season long at Susquehanna Speedway.

But fast doesn’t always win races.

Saturday night, the Newville, PA racer put it all together to capture his first 25-lap Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman feature win of the season.

After crashing last week and spending long hours all week in the race shop, Jackson started sixth on the grid, exchanged the lead with veteran Rich Eichelberger several times during the early laps of the feature. Jackson took control with five laps down but two late race yellows bunched the field on Jackson’s bumper.

Following a lap 23 caution, Doug Dodson was applying pressure to Jackson and as the pair raced towards the white flag, sparks flew from Dodson’s machine ending his bid as Jackson held on during the final lap to become the seventh different Super Sportsman winner this season aboard the McCoy Brothers General Construction, Liberator Performance No. 17J.

Eichelberger settled for the runner-up spot with defending track champion Russ Mitten third after starting 11th followed by Jay Fannasy and Gregg Foster with Mike Enders, track point leader Kenny Edkin, Chase Gutshall, Justin Foster and 21st starter and Hard Charger Nate Young completing the top ten.

Eichelberger, Gutshall and Justin Foster were heat winners for the 23 car field.

Adam Pierson started on the pole of the 20-lap ARDC Midget feature but would follow Brett Arndt during the first five laps before taking the lead and driving to his first Susquehanna win.

Ryan Greth finished second over Tommy Kunsman, Arndt and PJ Gargiulo with Ryan Wilson, Kenny Miller, Josh Heckman, Shawn Jackson and Jason Rice the top ten finishers.

Kunsman and Arndt were ARDC heat winners with 17 cars pitside.

Joey Hoffer raced to his second win of the season in the 20-lap Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stock feature.

Starting on the pole, Hoffer led flag to flag in the caution-filled event. Despite four restarts during the final two laps of the race, Hoffer prevailed over Jim Palm, Randy Zechman, Craig Morgan and Kevin Sigler with Mike Potts, Jimmy Combs, Ryan Smith 21st starter and Artwerks Hard Charger Matt Adams and Brad Bingaman rounding out the top ten finishers.

Potts, Sigler and Hoffer won heats for the 23 street stocks.

Track point leader and leading winner Alex Updegraff scored win number nine in the 20-lap Superior Homes Extreme Stock feature that was rained out back on July 8.

Updegraffs’s win came over Patrick McClane, Michael Smith, Kyle Emig and Bill Powell.

In the regularly scheduled Extreme Stock feature, Donnie Murphy ended the Updegraff domination coming through with his first win of the season and only the third different Extreme Stock winner.

Murphy was the eighth and final leader in the 20 lap event as Travis Horan, Jed Latshaw and Patrick McClane were all scored leaders of at least one lap during the main.

Murphy took the lead on lap 15 and held back 15th starter Updegraff for the win with Kyle Emig, Jed Latshaw and Michael Smith the top five finishers.

There were 20 Extreme Stocks in competition.

Coming up Saturday night August 5th, it will be Tyson Fence Night at Susquehanna Speedway and it will also serve as Kids Night 2017 with lots of festivities and prizes for the youngsters on hand. The Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman, Bernheisel Race Cars 358 Late Models and Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stocks will make up the three division program,. A makeup feature for the 358 Late Models, that was rained out on July 8 will also be on the race card which begins at 7PM with racing. Kids Night activities begin at 3PM.

MONTIETH COMES FROM 12TH TO WIN LINCOLN NON-STOP 410 SPRINT CAR FEATURE;

Halligan runs away from field in 358 sprints; Sagi claims first-ever Lincoln win in 358 late models

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA – July 29, 2017 – Brian Montieth continues his climb to legendary status at Lincoln Speedway. The latest feat was a win from 12th starting spot in a non-stop feature on Saturday night.

It included a thrilling three-car pass from fourth to first on lap 14.

Montieth entered the top five on lap nine as race-long leader Tyler Ross entered lapped traffic with a one and-a-half second lead over Brandon Rahmer. Rahmer was side-by-side with Ross for the race lead as the two completed lap 13. By that time, Montieth had advanced to fourth and was hot on the tail of third-place Chad Trout as all four raced nose-to-tail, side-by-side through lapped traffic. Montieth split Trout and Rahmer to move into second on the backstretch, and then went to the top side to drive around Ross for the race lead in turns three and four.

“Traffic here is everything,” said Montieth in victory lane, “Everybody had a shot to do something, and I just had to do something different.”

Montieth pulled away over the final ten laps to score a 2.41-second win over fifth-starting Chase Dietz, who advanced several spots over the final laps to cross second. Seventh starting Matt Campbell also came on strong at the end to finish third, with eighth-starting Chad Trout and Rahmer finishing fourth and fifth.

“It wasn’t a ‘gimme’ tonight. I can’t say enough about this team,” said Montieth, “We’ve struggled all-year and we should have been here more than we have. We made a lot of progress last weekend with the Outlaws. Even though we didn’t do very well time trial and heat race-wise, we finally got on the right page and I hope this continues.”

“I think a lot of it is seat time,” added Montieth, “I’ve been racing here a lot longer than most of those guys that started up there.”

When reminded that his 55th career Lincoln win moved him to within one of the great Bobby Abel, Montieth said,

“That’s something that 30 years ago I would never even though of. Thirty-five years ago I didn’t even know this place existed. There are a lot of legends in this place, and over the years I’ve learned about them.”

Ross settled for sixth, with Jim Siegel, Alan Krimes, Gerard McIntyre, Jr., and Tim Glatfelter rounding out the top ten.

Heats for the 18 “410” Sprinters were won by Krimes and Cole Young.

Jeff Halligan started on the pole and dominated the 20-lap 358 sprint car feature event, opening night of the Lincoln/Trail-Way “Shootout” for 358 sprinters. (Night #2 will be on September 1st at Trail-Way.) His second Lincoln win of the year was by seven seconds over a wild three-car battle for the runner-up spot, with Troy Wagaman, Jr. coming from seventh starting spot to hold off point leader Adrian Shaffer and Steve Owings. Todd Rittenhouse, Jr. was fifth.

Heats for the 30 “358” Sprinters were won by Wagaman, Jordan Givler, and Matt Findley, with Chandler Leiby winning the consolation.

Alan Sagi took the lead from polesitter Matt Murphy on the second lap and led the rest of the way for his first career Lincoln win in the 20-lap 358 late model feature. And his win came on a big night, as the active Auto Racing Club of Hagerstown member won on ARCH Night.

Murphy, Drew Weisser, Randy Burkholder, and Precise Racing Products point series leader Travis Mease completed the top five.

Heats for the 29 “358” Late Models were won by Bruce Kane, Cam Zeigler, and Jeremy Miller, with Steve Lowery winning the consolation.

Lincoln is back in action next Saturday night, August 29th, with DCS School of Driving Night featuring the 410 Sprints (Night #1 of three-track “Shootout” series for 410 sprints), 358 Sprints and the Classic Racing Series. In addition, we will be having York Flooring KIDS BIG WHEEL RACES.

Port Royal Speedway

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

Lafferty Dominates Port Royal Legends Dream Race Saturday To Pocket $12,510

Coleby Frye wins first of Port season in super lates

Speedway Offers $10 Admission & $2,000 To Win/25-laps For Late Models Aug. 5

7/29/17

Port Royal – Rick Lafferty dominated the Port Royal Speedway Living Legends Dream Race for 410 sprint cars on Saturday night to record the biggest win of his career, worth a combined total of $12,510 including posted payout and lap moneys.

Lafferty not only won the 35-lap Dream A Main but he also scored a $2,000 win in a 16-lap semi feature to set himself up for the main event. Danny Dietrich won the other semi feature contested.

In the 25-lap super late model main, it was Coleby Frye taking his first Port Royal checkers of the year, worth $2,000.

Lafferty started second in the Dream Race main event and outraced polesitter Greg Hodnett through the first corner to take the lead.

The first caution flag of the race unfurled on just the second lap, bunching the field, with Dietrich restarting third and Lance Dewease racing fourth.

Lafferty entered the backmarkers with Hodnett and Dewease giving chase on the 10th lap and that’s when Hodnett got another shot at the lead.

It was on the 13th tour that Hodnett squeezed by Lafferty for the lead as the pair entered the first turn but Lafferty proved up to the challenge and pulled back around Hodnett onto the backstretch to reclaim command.

A lap later Dietrich slowed on the track, forcing another caution flag.

Lafferty was stout on restarts the entire night, in both his semi main and the feature event, pacing the field slowly to the stripe before dropping the hammer and jetting away when the green appeared.

Another caution flag with 17 away proved the same result and Lafferty again entered traffic with 10 laps to go.

But a blown right rear tire on Cory Haas’ machine necessitated another yellow flag that turned red for refueling moments later.

Lafferty again drove away on the restart to take the victory, the 11th of his career at Port Royal, with a margin of victory of 1.136 seconds.

Dewease raced with Hodnett for second on the final lap and secured the spot in the final turns, taking home some $6,090 on the night including lap and purse moneys.

Hodnett ended up third in the A, taking home a combined total of $3,510.

Lucas Wolfe finished third, pocketing a combined $2,860 and Dale Blaney rode home fifth, accumulating a total of $2,200 on the night.

Sixth through 10th in the feature went to James McFadden, TJ Stutts, Blane Heimbach, Freddie Rahmer and Brock Zearfoss.

Fast times over the 35-car field were set by Blaney and Stutts with laps of 15.864 and 15.942, respectively.

Mike Wagner earned the fan-voted 25th starting position.

Kody Lehman won a complete set of Penske Shocks for having entered the most 2017 Port Royal events out of all the non-qualifiers at the conclusion of the B Main.

Chad Hollenbeck started second and led the first 13 laps of the 25-lap super late model main before seventh starter Coleby Frye took over to run to the win over a stout 32-car field.

Frye worked into third on the 11th lap, getting around Jason Covert for the spot before driving by Matt Cosner for second on lap 13.

It then took Frye just one more circuit to work by Hollenbeck for the victory.

Jason Covert came to second, getting by Cosner for the spot on the 17th loop but failed to gain on Frye for the win.

Covert finished second, 1.055 seconds behind the winner, followed by Cosner, Brian Tavenner and Kyle Hardy.

Sixth through 10th went to Mike Lupfer, Jason Miller, Chad Hollenbeck, Jim Yoder and Jamie Lathroum.

Heats went to Covert, Tavenner, Chris Casner and Cosner with Trent Brenneman scoring the consolation race.

Speedway officials announced that the August 5 show will be Fan Appreciation Night, offering $10 adult general admission for a racing program of 410 sprints, super late models, 305 sprints and xtreme stocks.

It was also announced that the super late models will race in a $2,000 to win, $200 to start, increased purse, 25-lap main in the August 5 show.

It will also be free military night, when past or present members of the military, with proper id, receive free general admission.

KIDS NIGHT NEXT UP AT SUSQUEHANNA SPEEDWAY

By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA ..7/27/17

It will be all about the Kids next Saturday, August 5th at Susquehanna Speedway.

Kids Night 2017 will feature lots of on and off track activities for the younger generation as Steph Jones has taken over the Kids Night duties and has a big night in store.

“I wanted to bring back what we had at Williams Grove where everything was right there for the kids and they can get around to everything,” Jones said. “I want to get the kids involved because if you look around, you really don’t see a lot of kids in the stands. So hopefully people will come out and bring their kids and we can keep them interested at least for one night.”

It certainly won’t come without a lack of effort.

It will all begin at 3PM when fans can enter the pit area along with their kids, get signed up for raffles (winners will be listed at 530pm outside the pit gate) and bike races and the first 250 kids to sign up will receive a Goody Bag.

From 3pm until 5pm, kids will be able to meet and greet drivers, jump in a Bounce House, enjoy face painting at the Jay Fannasy race car, get a cool ice cream treat at the Rich Eichelberger race car and have a chance to dunk some drivers in the Dunk Tank. Drivers participating in the Dunk Tank will be Garrett Williamson (3-315), Chase Billet (315-330), Kory Sites (330-345), Gregg Foster (345-4), Cameron Benyou (4-415), Dalton Frye (415-430), Troy Hockenberry (430-445) and Susquehanna Speedway General Manager Kolten Gouse will round out the Dunk Tank victims from 445-5.

Another fun event will be drivers in all divisions competing that night (Super Sportsman, 358 Late Models and Street Stocks) will autograph Frisbees when they sign in for the night. Then the Frisbees will be thrown to the kids and kids will want to root for the driver who signed their Frisbee because if that driver wins, the kid will get to go to Victory Lane and get a photo with the winner. LuckyShot Photography will then donate a victory lane photo to that kid with their driver.

Then Kids Night will switch to the race track where Kids Bike races will take place during intermission on the front stretch. There will be four age groups of races and each group winner will take home a trophy while all participants will also take home a consolation prize.

“I cannot thank everybody, the response from teams and sponsors has been overwhelming and I certainly can’t do what I’m doing to do with this night without all of the support from everyone,” Jones added.

Fans can keep up with the latest results, news and announcements for Susquehanna Speedway by visiting www.susquehannaspeedway.net, as well as on Facebook and Twitter.

 

 

Levan Machine & Truck Equipment presents

3rd Annual Thunder Cup: Smoke on the Hill

TONY STEWART FACES TOUGH COMPETITION AT GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY ON THURSDAY, AUGUST 17

BECHTELSVILLE, PA (July 27, 2017) – From Tulsa to Turkey Night and Sonoma to Charlotte, three-time NASCAR Cup Series Champion Tony Stewart has claimed victories at almost every track he’s competed.

On Thursday, August 17, Stewart gets the chance to tame one of Pennsylvania’s most popular facilities --the one-third-mile Grandview Speedway in Bechtelsville – as Levan Machine and Truck Equipment presents the third annual Thunder Cup: Smoke on the Hill as part of the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series. And as many have learned, the high banks of Grandview Speedway have taught even the most experienced drivers a lesson or two. So the real question is, Will Tony Stewart tame Grandview, or, will Grandview tame “Smoke” .

“Smoke” Tony Stewart will compete against the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions 410 Sprint Cars in a 30-lap main event on Grandview’s high banks against one of the toughest sprint car fields in the nation -- a mixture of All Star series regulars and the notorious Pennsylvania Posse.

While Stewart only holds two All Star wins in his famed career, one of those came earlier this week at Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway – proving that “Smoke” may be retired from NASCAR, but certainly isn’t retired from competition or finding his way to a dirt track victory lane!

The best-of-the-best of competition will be on hand on Thursday, August 17 with drivers like Greg Hodnett, Danny Dietrich, Lucas Wolfe, Dale Blaney and Freddie Rahmer – all winners at area race tracks this season; along with All Star standouts Chad Kemenah, Ryan Smith, Tim Shaffer, Cole Duncan, and Carson Macedo all expected to be on hand; throw in one of the nation’s most popular drivers with Rutherford, CA’s Rico Abreu and you have one of the strongest fields of the All-Star season.

Grandview’s popular Sportsman division joins the card with a 25-Lap, $1,300-to-win event that will entice racers from all over the region.

Time Trials for the 410 Sprint Cars will open the show on Thursday, August 17 at 7:30 PM. The pit gates will open at 2:30 PM and the Grandstands will open at 5:00 PM. Fans can up-close to the drivers and their mighty machines with the Low Down and Dirty Meet and Greet kicking off at 5:00 PM.

General Admission Adult tickets are $30, Children ages 6-11 are $10, and Kids under 6 are Free of charge! Pit admission is $35, and no license is required.

Advance tickets are available until Wednesday, August 16 by calling 443-513-4456. Please provide your name, phone number and the number of tickets you will need. Tickets may be paid for and picked up on race night at the Will-Call window after 4 PM. Advance ticket holders may enter the grandstands at 4:30 PM, 30 minutes before the opening of the box office.

Fans following the All Star Circuit of Champions may camp at the Speedway. Campers are asked to park in the turn 4 parking area, there are no hook-ups available, and no box camping allowed. Track officials ask that all fires be contained. There is no fee for camping.

NAPA Auto Parts continues their long run with the Thunder on the Hill Racing Series as the title sponsor joined by Pioneer Pole Buildings, Levan Machine and Truck Equipment and GALCO Business Communications.

By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA…7/22/17
Kenny Edkin just isn’t letting up.

The young Marysville, PA racer stormed from his 12th starting spot to capture his second consecutive and fifth overall Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman feature Saturday at Susquehanna Speedway.

Chase Dietz raced to his first career Susquehanna Speedway win in the K1 RaceGear 358 Sprint Summer Series feature while Kory Sites ended the streak of first time winners in Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stock action, becoming the first repeat winner this season.

Alex Updegraff continued his winning ways in the Superior Homes Extreme Stocks with his eighth win of the year.

After Garrett Williamson and Matt Ondek traded the lead during the first eight laps of the 25-lap Super Sportsman feature, Edkin made the race winning move with nine laps complete after lining up on the sixth row.

Edkin pulled away from the field once again as he continued his summer hot streak and padded his track points lead with his eighth straight top five finish aboard his family owned Edkin’s Towing, Carlisle Auto Salvage, Marysville Motorcars, King Spin Pizza, Rich Valley Black Walnuts No. 75.

Mike Enders came from eighth to finish in the runner-up spot followed by 10th starter Paul Miller, Ondek and 11th starter Scott Dellinger with Russ Mitten, Doug Dodson, Rich Eichelberger, Chase Gutshall and 23rd starter and ArtWerks Hard Charger Davey Walsh completing the top ten.

Heats for the 23 Super Sportsman were won by Gutshall, Edkin and Tony Jackson.

Troy Wagaman, Jr. led the first ten laps of the 25-lap K1 RaceGear 358 Sprint Summer Series feature before fourth-starting Chase Dietz took over and would never look back in scoring his first win for the R & R Motorsports/Roger McGeehan owned team.

Dietz, who earned $1,500 for the win took the checkered flag ahead of Steven Drevicki, Wagaman, Brent Shearer and Jordan Givler.

Rounding out the top ten were 22nd starter and Hard Charger Chris Frank, Mike Bittinger, Chris Arnold, Chandler Leiby and TJ DeHaven.

The 358 Sprint car main was stopped twice with red flags involving top challengers Chad Trout, who set fast time and multi-time Central PA winner Doug Hammaker.

Drevecki, Wagaman, Givler and Dietz were heat winners for the 38-car field while Todd Gracey won the consolation. Trout paced time trials with a fast lap of 16.672 seconds.

Veteran driver Kory Sites became the first repeat winner in ten races this season as he picked up his second win in the Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stock feature.

Sites started third and wasted little time in taking control, gaining the lead on lap two and holding on despite six caution periods during the 20 lap event.

Sites took the win over Craig Morgan, 10th starter Michael Walls, Mike Potts and Scott Strickler as Dalton Frye, 16th starter Randy Zechman, Kevin Heckman, 19th starter and Artwerks Hard Charger Jimmy Combs and Jim Palm were the top ten finishers.

Joey Hoffer and Kevin Sigler won heats for the 19 Street Stocks.

It was win number eight for Alex Updegraff in the Superioer Homes Extreme Stock feature as he led the final 12 laps to pick up the win over Patrick McClane, Michael Smith, Travis Horan and Donnie Broderick. Updegraff also won the single heat race for the 12 car field.

Susquehanna Speedway will close out the month of July with a big double-header weekend with the 16th annual York County Nationals. Saturday night, July 29 will feature the Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman, ARDC Midgets, Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stocks and the Superior Homes Extreme Stocks.

Five-time and defending Williams Grove track champion Greg Hodnett was scheduled to start on the pole with third place Outlaws point man David Gravel to his outside. The Posse and Outlaws also shared row two with Danny Dietrich starting third and Brad Sweet fourth. Logan Schuchart, Daryn Pittman, Jason Sides, Lucas Wolfe, Outlaws point leader Donny Schatz and Shane Stewart completed the top 10 in the starting line-up. Lance Dewease and Brian Montieth were scheduled to start 11th and 12th.
The 38-car field was split into two groups for qualifying time trials. Hodnett set quick time over the first group with a lap of 17.186. Wolfe, Sides, Dietrich and Matt Campbell followed Hodnett. Schuchart set quick time over the second group with a lap of 17.314. Pittman, Gravel, Sweet and Trey Starks followed Schuchart.
Hodnett, Dietrich, Gravel and Sweet won the eight-lap heat races. Hodnett drew the zero pill for dash inversion and won the six-lap race over Gravel and Dietrich. Anthony Macri beat Steve Buckwalter to win the Last Chance Showdown

BITTINGER HOLDS OFF KODY HARTLAUB FOR TRAIL-WAY 358 SPRINT CAR WIN; CHANEY BEST OF CENTRAL PA LEGENDS; PECK, COX 270 MICRO WINNERS; CARROLL TAKES LIMITED STOCKS; RICKRODE WINS COGHILL MEMORIAL FOR VINTAGE CARS

HANOVER, PA (7/21/2017) – Mike Bittinger raced to his second win of the season in the 25-lap 358 sprint car feature at Trail-Way Speedway Friday night.

“It’s warm out, but I’m not quite as warm as I was the last time I was here,” quipped the Abbottstown driver after exiting his Apple Automotive/Big Mike’s Crabhouse/Three Hogs Barbecue #12 in victory lane.

The last time Bittinger raced at Trail-Way, he dove to the infield with his car on fire. He jumped from the car and rolled on the ground.

“My daughter told me I looked like Ricky Bobby,” joked Bittinger, “Next time I’ll have to rip my suit off and run down the track!”

Not only was Bittinger hot, but he was tired, too.

“I felt good for 20 laps, and then I don’t know what happened. I guess the Geratol wore off. I ended up bouncing off the curb a time or two, but it didn’t hurt us,” said Bittinger, “Without my crew and sponsors, I wouldn’t be standing here.”

His final margin of victory was a half-second over Kody Hartlaub, who completed his best-ever TW finish. Isaac Sneeringer crossed third, followed by hard charger Steve Owings, who started 12th and went into the pits for some adjustments after sustaining some damage in a four-car crash that resulted in a Cody Fletcher flip on turn one of lap two. Joe Trone, Jr. rounded out the top five.

Qualifiers for the 14 sprint cars were won by Hartlaub and David Holbrook.

The Mason Dixon 270cc micro-sprints ran two feature events.

In the make-up feature rained delayed from a few weeks ago, Levi Peck was declared the winner when Mike Rutherford was penalized two spots for passing before the cone on a restart. Chad Myers finished second and Rutherford was credited with third. Jeff Arigo and Joe Long Jr. completed the top five.

In the regularly-scheduled feature, Steven Cox won his first Trail-Way race of the year, crossing ahead of Peck, with Brent Bull, Chad Myers and Tim Mc Clelland rounding out the top five.

Bull land Cory Myers won heats for the 19 micros on hand.

Mason Chaney raced to his second Trail-Way win of the year and his sixth 2017 win overall in dthe Service Master Clean Central PA Legends feature.

Chris Transeau, 11th-starting Bill Diehl, Justin Mitchell, and Scott Houdeshell crossed second through fifth. Houdeshell actually came from the back twice after early-race incidents.

Heats for the 20 Legends were won by Rick Hartwig and Hayden Pascoe.

Scott Rickrode claimed the win in the 20-lap Les Coghill Memorial for the Penn Mar Vintage cars, a race made up from a June 23rrd rainout.

Randy Minich, Glenn Pobbletts, John Marks, and Mark Rickrode, Jr. rounded out the top five.

Robbie Carroll inherited the lead when Shannon Weaver made contact with a lapped car and struck the outside backstretch wall on lap nine, then went on to win his second TW race of the year n the 15-lap limited stock feature.

Terry Hartlaub, Kyle Rohrbaugh, Jason Chronister, and Jeff Foster crossed second through fifth.

Next Friday, July 28th, Trail-Way swings back into action with the 358 Sprints, along with the 600 Micro Sprints, Limited Stocks, Street Stocks and the Classic Cars competing in the 20-lap “Lyle Adcock Memorial.” Gates open at 5:30 p.m., with heats scheduled to begin at 7:45 p.m.
