THRILLING DIRT CLASSIC VIII GOES TO JUSTIN PECK AND THE ALL STARS

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Saturday, September 25 (6:00 p.m.) PA Karting Grand Nationals

Saturday, October 2 Lucas Oil Pro Pulling Tractor & Truck Pull presented by Crownstone Equipment

Saturday, October 9 (6:00 p.m.) Super Late Models, 358 Sprint Cars and Limited Late Models (ARCH Night)

Abbottstown, PA (September 18, 2021) – It had been 82 days since Justin Peck was in victory lane going into Saturday night’s Dirt Classic VIII. Peck’s last win came at Lincoln Speedway during PA Speedweek on June 28, “It feels like it’s been a long time coming.” Peck’s first All Star Win at Lincoln earned him $20,000 and added his name to the prestigious list of Dirt Classic winners that includes Stevie Smith, Brian Montieth, Lance Dewease, Tim Shaffer and Kyle Larson.

After time trials and two rounds of heat races, Peck was the high points man earning him the pole for the 40-lap feature. Zeb Wise shared the front row and took the lead at the drop of the green flag, “Zeb was so good early. He got out front in clean air and beat me on both of those initial starts.”

Wise paced the field early with some fierce battles for position behind him. Peck stayed inside the top three with Wise out front, “I was just kind of saving my equipment. I knew about 15 to go was when I really needed to go for it and the restart fell right around there so it just kind of all worked out in our favor tonight.”

When Peck made his charge to the front, it started with a move to the bottom of turns 1 and 2, “I’ve always been a big Lance Dewease fan, it’s someone I idolize and try and mimic myself after. I’ve watched a lot of film of him here at Lincoln Speedway getting around the bottom. I really tried to do what they’re doing.” The move paid off and Peck earned his fourth All Star feature win of the season and his seventh win overall on the year.

The front row for the start of the 40-lap Dirt Classic VIII was made up of two All Star drivers, Justin Peck and Zeb Wise. Row two was all PA Posse with Brent Marks and Lance Dewease. Dewease was the only previous Dirt Classic winner in the field.

Wise had the lead coming out of turn 2 on the start after using the high side. The red came out before a lap was completed when Hunter Schuerenberg got upside-down in turns 3 and 4.

The field lined up for a complete restart and once again, despite Peck getting a better start this time, Wise still held the lead coming out of turn 2.

Anthony Macri was all over Dewease for fourth. Dewease moved his line up to the top of the track and pulled away from Macri.

Wise entered lapped traffic on lap 6 and Peck started to close the gap to the leader.

Marks was also using lapped traffic to his advantage and closed in on Peck for second. Marks got by Peck for the spot, but Peck held on to second by a nose at the line on lap 13.

Dewease entered the picture and was challenging Marks for third. The top four, Wise, Peck, Marks and Dewease, battled for position in heavy lapped traffic. Peck stumbled on the cushion allowing Marks to get by for second on lap 16.

The yellow flag waved on lap 18 when Brian Brown came to a stop on the front stretch. Dewease came to a stop in turn 3 under caution after the car shut off ending Dewease’s campaign for a second Dirt Classic win. Dewease had been slated to restart fourth.

The top five for the restart were Wise, Marks, Peck, Macri and Spencer Bayston.

Freddie Rahmer restarted sixth, charging to the front of the field from his 11th starting spot. In addition to racing for his first Dirt Classic win, Rahmer was also looking to clinch his second track championship on Saturday night. With a finish ahead of Alan Krimes, Rahmer would secure his second championship in two years.

The caution came out again on lap 21 when Skylar Gee stopped in turn 3.

Wise led Marks, Peck, Macri and Rahmer to the cone for the restart.

Marks went to the bottom and was pressuring Wise for the lead. Marks started to slow on the back stretch and brought out the caution on lap 25 when he came to a stop on the front stretch. Marks was the second driver to have their night end while running inside the top five.

With another shake-up at the front of the field the top five for the restart were Wise, Peck, Macri, Rahmer and Bayston. Macri got under Peck in turn 3 but Peck held on to second. Rahmer dove under Macri in turn 3 but did not make the pass. Macri pulled away but Rahmer reeled him back in and the two battled for third yet again.

Bayston fell off the pace while running fifth and pulled into the infield.

Peck slid Wise for the lead and took the top spot on lap 36. Wise was still there and slid Peck back to reclaim the top spot on lap 37. Lap 38 saw another lead change with Peck getting back by Wise.

Rahmer was third and started closing in on Wise. Rahmer got by Wise on the final lap for second as Wise ran out of fuel before Rahmer.

Peck got to the checkered flag for the Dirt Classic VIII win 1.365 seconds ahead of Rahmer. With his second place finish Rahmer claimed his second track championship. Wise crossed the line third and Macri finished fourth. Cory Haas, the hard charger, finished fifth after lining up 17th to start the race.

Spencer Bayston set quick-time over the 49-car field with a lap time of 13.301 seconds.

The first round of heat races went to Brent Marks, Zeb Wise, Skylar Gee, Lance Dewease and Anthony Macri. Round two heat winners were Tim Wagaman, Hunter Schuerenberg, Cory Haas, Lucas Wolfe and Chase Dietz.

Contingency awards, courtesy of the Eastern Museum of Motor Racing and W & W Racing Tire went to Spencer Bayston (Quick Time-$200), Cory Haas (Hard Charger-$200), Justin Whittall (Non-Qualifier Bonus 1-$200), Jordan Givler (Non-Qualifier Bonus 2-$200), Kyle Moody (Non-Qualifier Bonus 3-$200) and Landon Myers (Non-Qualifier Bonus 4-$200).

Williams Grove National Open Preliminary Has Its Place At The History Table

2021 event to be run October 1

9/18/21

Mechanicsburg - As much as the Champion Racing Oil National Open at Williams Grove Speedway deserves its place in sprint car lore as it celebrates its 59th annual running on October 2 with a $75,000 payday, the National Open Preliminary race itself also has a place at the history table.

Although not an annual event, the National Open Preliminary race will hold its head high and celebrate its 34th running coming up on October 1.

The preliminary was first run in 1980 with Keith Kauffman taking the win aboard the Weikert Livestock No. 29.

That preliminary win would be the first of two for Weikert in the race with Doug Wolfgang scoring again a few years later in 1985.

Noted author and television commentator of today, driver Brad Doty of Apple Creek, Ohio was lured East back in 1981 and picked up what would be his first of two career Williams Grove wins in the preliminary before suffering career ending injuries in a racing crash a few years later.

The event has only been lost to weather eight times over the years and on nine occasions the preliminary winner has swept both National Open races, going on to score the coveted big prize a day later.

Sweeps came in 1982, 1985, 1989, 1990, 1995, 1996, 1997, 2011 and in 2017 at the respective hands of Lynn Paxton, Wolfgang, Stevie Smith, Steve Kinser, Mark Kinser, Lance Dewease, Sammy Swindell, Jason Myers and David Gravel.

And that sweep by Paxton in 1982 was surrounded by considerable controversy stemming from the preliminary race.

The Williams Grove record books actually show a tie for the preliminary win between both Paxton and Ohio’s Dave Blaney on September 17.

A young Blaney was leading, headed for his first career Grove win on that night when he ran into mechanical problems as he raced off of the fourth turn toward the checkers.

Veteran Paxton was trailing and gaining fast as Blaney tried to limp home and the scorers documented his No. 10 as crossing the finish line first.

However unrest abounded regarding that decision and a picture of the finish taken at the line produced the next day clearly showed Paxton crossing very close but definitely first.

Thus both drivers were paid for and credited with a victory and Paxton could go on to score the weekend sweep with Grove career wins 38 and 39.

No driver has been able to put up big numbers in the preliminary race over the years unlike within its big brother National Open wherein World of Outlaws driver Donny Schatz will go for his amazing seventh event title in a few weeks.

Rather, in the preliminary no driver holds more than a trio of wins with Kauffman, Steve Kinser and Gravel all holding that distinction.

Before the World of Outlaws began sanctioning the preliminary in 1989, the race was contested once as an All Stars Circuit of Champions contest with Maynard Yingst the winner in 1986.

Today and for many years now the National Open Preliminary at Williams Grove is run as a separate and stand-alone show aside from the Open itself.

However for a number of years as an outlaws race, the top four finishers in the preliminary race were automatically locked into the next night’s National Open.

This was standard procedure under World of Outlaws sanctioning rules for two-day shows for many seasons.

In the 2006 running of the event, Washington state driver Jason Solwold made speedway and outlaws history with a preliminary night win.

Up to that point in outlaws history at the track, every sanctioned race ever run had been scored by either a series regular or a clear member of the home team PA Posse.

Solwold’s drive to victory made him the first true independent driver to ever win a Williams Grove outlaws feature main.

And one last piece of history from the National Open preliminary comes from 2018 when the “Fresno Phenom,” Giovanni Scelzi crossed the country for an upset win on September 28.

Scelzi’s victory etched his name in the record books as the youngest driver ever to win a sprint car race at the historic venue at the ripe old age of 16.

The 34th running of the 25-lap National Open Preliminary gets underway at 7:30 on October 1.

The winner will receive $10,000.

He will be trying for the unprecedented clean sweep this Friday night.

Having clinched the overall 2021 track title on September 17, Lance Dewease will be aiming to wrap up the 2021 Diamond Series title at Williams Grove as the race concludes the yearly series of big events at the track that carry a separate point payoff.

Macri Wins 39th Williams Grove All Stars Jack Gunn Memorial, Dewease Clinches Seventh Career Track Title With Run

9/17/21

Mechanicsburg –Anthony Macri of nearby Dillsburg won the battle and Lance Dewease of Fayetteville won the war in the sprint car races at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night.

Just weeks after getting his long-awaited first career 410 sprint car win at the oval, Macri led from start to finish in a torrid event to pick up a $7,000 payday in the 39th running of the Jack Gunn Memorial sanctioned by the All Stars Circuit of Champions Sprint Cars Series.

And with a second place run in the Gunn Memorial, veteran Lance Dewease clinched his seventh career speedway track title, this time at the wheel of the Don Kreitz Jr.-owned No. 69K.

Macri started on the pole of the 30-lap Gunn Memorial with Chase Dietz to his outside but when the green flag fell only the first half lap could be scored before Matt Campbell flipped in the second turn and onto the backstretch.

The restart saw Macri take command on the cushion around the blistering fast half-mile with Dietz and fifth starter Dewease running in third.

The rear of the field came into play on the sixth lap as Macri hit the backmarkers at a dizzying pace.

This allowed Dietz to drive down a near straightaway advantage held by Macri to a margin of less than one corner before the final yellow flag of the race came out with nine laps in the book.

Brent Marks lined up behind Dewease for the restart and drove to his outside when green reappeared as the pair worked the first and second turns.

Marks pulled alongside Dewease as the pair raced toward the bridge but Dewease made his car wider and wider as the bridge came upon them with Marks backing out and settling into fourth.

Macri again entered the rear of the field at the halfway point carrying a near two-second lead.

By lap 19 the trio of Dietz, Dewease and Marks were all racing under a blanket for second, all within the space of one corner.

Dewease finally made a move for second with nine laps to go and Marks followed him a few laps later.

But Macri again had nearly a two second lead with five laps to go and as Marks battled Dewease for second all the way to the finish, they ended up 2.331 seconds behind Macri at the line.

“Track position was everything tonight,” Macri said.

“I knew starting on the front row, I had to get out front and make 30 clean laps. It got a little sketchy in lapped traffic at times. I knew I had to keep my pace up.”

By virtue of his win, Macri earned a guaranteed starting spot in Saturday night’s All Stars Dirt Classic at Lincoln Speedway.

For his part, Dewease reflected on what was his championship run.

“We’ve been pretty good all year,” Dewease said.

“We can pass race cars even on a track like this. It seems like it didn’t matter where we started, we’d get to the top three, top five.”

“It’s nice to get Donald (Kreitz) and Davey (Brown) a championship. I’m glad it’s over and we can worry about racing again.”

“The car’s been really good here the second half of the year. We can get up through there pretty good. Even on nights like tonight, this isn’t our type of racetrack and we got to second.”

Counting the Gunn Memorial, Dewease started a total of 17 main events at Williams Grove during the season to date and made it to the podium in 15 of the races including four wins, seven seconds and four third place finishes.

Dietz and 13th starter Danny Dietrich completed the top five.

Brian Brown, Zeb Wise, Dylan Cisney, Robbie Kendall and Cory Eliason rounded out the top 10.

Brown set fast time over the 40-car field with a lap of 16.572 seconds.

Chase Dietz, Aaron Reutzel, Robbie Kendall and Cory Eliason won the heat races. Devon Borden won the B-main.

Austin Reed won the 20-lap PASS/IMCA 305 sprint car main over Devin Adams, Jeff Geiges, Dave Grube and Brandon McClain.

Heats went to McClain, Tyler Snook and Justin Mills with Grube taking the consolation race.

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY: A Motorsports Tradition for Generations

Selinsgrove Speedway’s grand motorsports tradition began July 20, 1946, when Bill Holland of Philadelphia won the first race. Since that historic day, Holland went on to win the 1949 Indy 500, and many of motorsports’ most famous drivers have turned laps at the iconic half-mile dirt track designed by legendary Hollywood stuntman and race car driver Joie Chitwood. The speedway, celebrating its momentous 75th anniversary in 2021, will continue its legacy of rip-roaring open wheel and stock car racing this season and for future generations!

Jack Gunn Legacy To Be Honored Friday At Williams Grove Speedway

9/12/21

Mechanicsburg - This Friday’s All Stars Circuit of Champions Sprints event at Williams Grove Speedway will honor late, great, promoter Jack Gunn.

The Jack Gunn Memorial Dirt Classic Qualifier will pay the winner a healthy $7,000.

First run in 1983, the Gunn Memorial honors late Williams Grove promoter Jack Gunn, a native of Hancock, Maryland.

Gunn was a Hall of Fame Promoter who heralded the speedway as promoter from 1967 until his untimely death from cancer at the age of 48 in 1980.

He began working at the track during the early 1960s as an announcer and honed his skill on the microphone while eventually relaying his talents into the oval’s captain.

It was during his tenure at the helm of Williams Grove Speedway that Gunn rose to prominence on the local and national scene and he took the facility with him.

During his career at Williams Grove, Gunn also promoted with much success at other area tracks.

Gunn’s mark on both Williams Grove and the region itself was to help raise sprint car racing to not only a weekly division but a premiere weekly headline division at that.

Gunn was feted nationally as 1979 Promoter of the Year.

While at the top of his game, he not only stood at the helm at both Williams Grove and Selinsgrove Speedways, but he was also doing the job at Hagerstown, (Maryland) and Penn National Speedways.

In his day, Jack Gunn was known as the most powerful promoter in the East.

And it is that reputation and skill that Williams Grove Speedway will honor yet again this week with the running of the All Stars Jack Gunn Memorial.

Gates will open at 5:30 pm.

Adult general admission is set at $25 with youth ages 13 – 20 admitted for just $10. Kids ages 12 and under are always admitted for FREE at Williams Grove Speedway.

LINCOLN SPEEDWAY

Abbottstown, PA

JASON COVERT GETS FIRST LINCOLN SUPER LATE VICTORY; Young-gun Jayden Wolf Wins in Second Lincoln 358 Start; Ken Duke Jr Declared Winner after DQ

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Saturday, September 18 (7:30 p.m.) DIRT CLASSIC VIII presented by Schmuck Lumber Company for All Star Sprints ($20,000 to win) [rain date: Sunday, August 19]

Saturday, September 25 (6:00 p.m.) PA Karting Grand Nationals

Saturday, October 2 Tractor & Truck Pull presented by Crownstone Equipment

Abbottstown, PA (September 11, 2021) – After his dominating win on Saturday night, Jason Covert was quick to point out that this was his first super late victory at Lincoln, “I’ve won two limited races here, this is the first super race I’ve won here. I told Bryan I’d love to go to Lincoln to race, yeah, we need money, but I don’t care what it paid. I just wanted to win a super race here and we did it.”

Covert started on the front row of the 30-lap feature alongside pole-sitter, Shaun Jones, “It helped to be on the outside front row. He got the jump on me there and then he went to the bottom in 3 and 4 and that opened the top.”

Once Covert took the lead, he never looked back.

Pole-sitter Shaun Jones got a solid start when the green flag dropped with Tyler Horst and Covert battling for second. Horst had second coming out of turn 2 but Covert got him back to hold on to the runner-up spot.

Horst looked under Covert again, but Covert had his eyes set on Jones for the lead. Covert looked to the outside of Jones for the lead and had the advantage at the line by a mere .019 seconds on lap 2.

Bryan Bernheisel was battling Horst for third and took the spot. Horst had it back briefly on the backstretch, but Bernheisel held the spot at the line.

Covert had a 2.267 second lead over Jones when he caught the tail end of the field on lap 7.

Bernheisel was closing in on Jones as they worked their way through heavy lapped traffic. Jones was eventually able to pull away from Bernheisel in lapped traffic.

Covert’s lead was up to 3.360 seconds at the halfway point. Covert’s sizeable advantage over Jones was wiped away with a caution on lap 16. Pancho Lawler and Chad Myers got together on the front stretch, right in front of Covert.

Covert avoided the melee and led Jones, Bernheisel, Horst and Brett Schadel to the cone for the restart.

Dylan Yoder was looking to get into the top five and went three wide coming out of turn 4 with Schadel and Horst. Schadel took fourth, Yoder got up to fifth and Horst fell back to sixth.

Horst was trying to get fifth back from Yoder when the yellow came out on lap 21 for Dan Weisser who was stopped in turn 2.

Covert led Jones, Bernheisel, Schadel, and Dylan Yoder for the late race restart.

Covert took the checkered flag for his first super late model win at Lincoln 3.041 seconds ahead of Jones. Bernheisel crossed the line third. Yoder was fourth and Schadel completed the top five.

Super Late Model heat race wins went to Dylan Yoder, Andrew Yoder and Tyler Horst.

Young-gun Jayden Wolf Wins in Second Lincoln 358 Start

In only his second career start in the 358 sprint division at Lincoln, and his fifth start overall in a 358 sprint car, Jayden Wolf wired the field for his first win on Saturday night, “To be honest with you I’m speechless. I didn’t think I was even going to be in the top 10. This is incredible and I am very grateful for where I am right now.”

Wolf held off an early race charge from Justin Foster, “I was just planning on getting a good start and just hoping to keep it straight and smooth and that’s what we did.”

Later in the race veteran driver, Steve Owings, was challenging Wolf for the lead, “Being new I was just worried about over driving or driving over my head, getting too nervous.”

Saturday Night was the final race in the MacMor Construction 358 Summer Series. Going into the 25-lape feature, Travis Scott held a 45-point lead over Chris Frank in the series points.

Hayden Miller and Jayden Wolf shared the front row for the start of the feature with Wolf leading the field into turn 1. Miller was running second and Justin Foster was third. Scott started third with Foster getting by him on the start. Scott looked to take the spot back as the two raced wheel-to-wheel down the back stretch. Foster held the position by a nose at the line on lap 2.

Scott dove under Foster going into turn 3 to take second but the caution came out before the pass was official. The lap 3 caution was for Dan Richcreek who was facing the wrong direction in turn 2.

Wolf led Miller, Foster, Scott and Owings to the cone for the single-file restart. Wolf held the lead with Foster getting a solid jump on Scott. Scott reeled in Foster in one lap just in time for another yellow flag on lap 4 for Zachary Cool who got sideways in turn 1.

There was no change in the top five for the restart. Foster looked to the outside of Miller for second but could not complete the pass. Scott was being challenged by Owings for fourth with Wolf pulling away from the field.

Owings got by Scott for fourth on lap 9 just as Wolf was entering lapped traffic.

Foster would be Owings’ next victim. Owings got by Foster going down the back stretch to take third on lap 11 and went straight to work on reeling in Miller.

Wolf had heavy lapped traffic in front of him, allowing Miller and Owings to close in.

The caution came out again on lap 14 when Billy Heltzel stopped in turn 3.

The top five for the restart were Wolf, Miller, Owings, Foster and Scott. Owings got to the outside of Miller in turns 1 and 2 to take second.

Owings caught Wolf and was looking for a way to get by the young driver for the lead. Lapped traffic loomed ahead of the leaders with 10 laps to go.

The yellow flag flew on lap 20 when Zach Allman came to a stop in turn 2.

Wolf paced the field ahead of Owings, Miller, Foster and Scott on the restart.

Wolf got a good jump on the start. Owings was good in turns 1 and 2 with Wolf having the advantage in turns 3 and 4.

The red flag came out on lap 22 when Mason Chaney took a wild ride in turns 1 and 2.

Foster looked to the outside of Miller on the restart and the two raced wheel to wheel down the back stretch with Foster making the pass for third.

Miller, Scott and Riley Emig were battling for fourth as the laps wound down.

Wolf got to the checkered flag .499 seconds ahead of Owings for this first win. Foster held on to third. Scott finished fourth, securing his first Summer Series Championship. Miller completed the top five.

Heat race winners in the 358 sprint car division were Chad Criswell, Cameron Smith and Riley Emig.

Ken Duke Jr Declared Winner after DQ

Mike Melair ran an impressive race and wired the field for what appeared to be his first win at Lincoln. Melair failed to go to the scales after the 20-lap feature resulting in him being disqualified from the race. With the DQ, Ken Duke Jr. was awarded the win on Saturday night.

Melair started on the pole with Kristina Pratt to his outside. Pratt was penalized on the start for not being side-by-side at the chalk line. That put Ken Duke Jr. on the outside of row 1.

Melair took the lead when the green flag dropped. Duke was right there and the two raced side-by-side down the back stretch. Melair held the lead and the two raced wheel-to-wheel coming out of turn 2 with Melair once again holding on to the top spot.

Melair used some good runs out of turn 2 to create space between him and Duke.

Garrett Bard, who won both 305 sprint features at Lincoln in 2020, was up to fourth from his sixth starting spot. Bard was all of Mikell McGee for third.

The caution came out on lap 7 when Kenny Heffner came to a stop on the front stretch.

Melair led Duke, Bard, McGee and Justin Mills to the cone for the restart. Bard got a run on Duke using the high line creating a three-car battle for the lead.

The yellow flag flew again on lap 9 when Erin Stattler and Dominic Melair got tighter on the inside of turn 4. Austin Reed and Donnie Hendershot were stopped in the top of turn 4.

Duke was trying everything to get by Melair. He looked to the inside of the leader, but the caution came out on lap 10 when Dustin Young spun in turn 2.

Bard looked under Duke for second as they drove into turn 1 but was not able to make the pass. Mills drove under McGee in turn 4 to take fourth on lap 13.

Lapped traffic loomed ahead of the leaders as the laps wound down. Bard once again looked to the inside of Duke as they worked through lapped traffic but did not make the pass.

With Melair’s DQ, Duke was scored the winner. Bard was second and Mills finished third. McGee was fourth and Doug Dodson completed the top five.

The 305 sprint car heat races were won by Justin Mills, Kenny Heffner, Erin Stattler and Garrett Bard.

Next Saturday, September 18, Lincoln Speedway is back in action with the Dirt Classic VIII featuring the All Star Circuit of Champions. Racing starts at 7:00PM with pit gates opening at 3:30PM and grandstand gates opening at 4PM.

Logan Wagner Completes Historic 2021 Season at Port Royal Speedway with 54th Annual Tuscarora 50 Triumph

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway – PORT ROYAL, Pa. (Sept 12, 2021) – Logan Wagner capped off a historic season at the Port Royal Speedway with a late-race pass of Lance Dewease to claim the biggest victory of his career in the 54th Annual Tuscarora 50 presented by Ramsey's Car Wash & Garage and Packer's Concessions, LLC..

Wagner tied the legendary Keith Kauffman one night prior as the only drivers in Speedway history to win four consecutive track points titles and he bookended the season with the $54,000 All FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 triumph on Saturday.

Combined with lap money and other awards, Wagner won a total of $56,075 and further stamped himself in the Port Royal Speedway history books in front of a sell-out crowd on the 20th anniversary of the September 11th attacks.

"I'm living in a dream man and I'm in an ultimate universe. It's unreal," said Wagner in front a raucous crowd of friends and family. "
Prior to the start of the feature event, Wagner kicked off the evening by setting fast time during qualifying to earn $1200 courtesy of Packers Concessions and Tedd Reitz and he added another $200 later via Reitz when he picked up his heat win.

However, courtesy of a fortunate re-draw, it was Rico Abreu taking the green-flag form the pole position with Wagner sitting in second. Last season's Tuscarora 50 saw Abreu lead a majority of the race before a mechanical failure ended his bid for the cash and he picked right back up where he left off by leading lap one over Wagner, night two winner Daryn Pittman, Dewease and Tyler Courtney.

Lap two saw Dewease crack the podium for the first time of the night and two laps later, the Hometown Kid Dylan Cisney moved into the top-five form his sixth starting spot. Dewease used his familiar low groove to slip by Wagner for the second position on the same lap and set his sights on Abreu, who was pulling away from the pack.

On lap seven Abreu met the tail end of the pack and within four laps, Dewease was all over Abreu for the top spot in lapped traffic. Abreu struggled to dispatch of the lapped car of AJ Flick and that left an opening for Dewease to capitalize on the bottom of turn's three and four to lead lap 12.

Cisney continued his trek forward on lap 13 as he moved into the fourth position and one lap later Macri cracked the top-five form his eighth starting spot.

Lap 17 saw Wagner drive through the middle of turn's three and four around the outside of Abreu for the second position and the Harrisonville, Pa. native set his sights on a shot at glory and Dewease.

Dewease held steady up front as the field neared the halwfay mark of the event, but Wagner was closing fast. As the field took the yellow flag for the halfway mark, all eyes were on Dewease as he appeared to be leaking oil and smoke was billowing from his famed baby blue No. 69k.

While under the yellow Dewease's team worked hard to find the root of the problem and Dewease actually exited the car to clean his steering wheel and driver's suit of oil. The team added two quarts of oil and made repairs to the oil pressure gauge as Wagner's team sat patiently behind him and made slight adjustments for the second half of the 50-lap event.

"I didn't know what was going on with Lance and I hate to see someone blow up, but I'll be honest I was hoping to see him blow up," said Wagner. "I knew we had something for him there at the halfway mark. I told the guys at the stop, I'm either bringing. I'm either bring this thing back checkers or wreckers and they told me to let her rip."

For Dewease, he was just trying to hang on and get past the issues with the oil leak.

"Honestly we ran out of tear offs after the first 10 laps and I couldn't even barely hold onto the steering wheel with the amount of oil coming out," said Dewease. "I kind of felt like we might be a sitting duck out there, but we just tried to do our best under the break there to try and get to the finish."

If Dewease couldn't see, it was tough for the fans to tell as he again raced out the lead over Wagner and Abreu when the field returned to green. Macri moved into the fourth position on lap 28 and three laps later Dewease again approached the tail end of the field.

Whether it was the oil leak or dirty air conditions, Dewease was struggling to make up speed in lapped traffic and Wagner was again closing. However, he nearly threw it all away when he smacked the outside guardrail in turn's three and four trying to get around the lapped car of Kyle Reinhardt.

"I stuffed it in the fence a couple times and I was just driving my hardest to try and get by him and in a position to win," said Wagner. "I got in there and got off Reinhardt's right rear and I hit the wall and I knew that was on me to regroup and go."

Wagner regained his composure, while Macri slid into a podium position two laps later. With 15 to go it was a quad of Port Royal regulars holding down the front four spots as Cisney moved into fourth. Moments later the caution flew with 15 laps remaining as Zeb Wise shredded a left rear tire on the frontstretch.

Macri took advantage of the restart and slid Wagner for second, however the caution again flew before a lap could be completed for debris as a result of Zeb Wise. Wise's wing had sustained damage as a result of the previous blown tire and was the reason for the yellow.

This time Wagner was ready for Macri's attempt and he remained steady a few carlengths behind Dewease in second. One lap later the caution flew again for a slowing Tyler Courtney. Courtney was running eighth and appeared to be suffering from a right flat tire under the previous caution and tagged the tail of the field after replacing the tire.

11th-place starter and night one winner Brent Marks made his way into the top five following the restart and with 10 laps remaining, Wagner was slowly chipping away at Dewease's advantage. With six laps to go Dewease entered lapped traffic and with three to go Wagner was stalking his prey.

Dewease checked up slightly for the lapped car of Kyle Reinhardt entering turn three and that allowed Wagner to dive under for the leadentering turn four. However, Dewease was able to complete the crossover move and pulled back ahead to lead the lap with the two-to-go sign showing in the flagstand.

This time Wagner went to the highside in turn's one and two and he completed the pass for the lead down the backstretch. He dove back to the bottom in turn's three and four to put two lapped cars between him and Dewease and brought the record-high crowd to their feet as he took the white flag.

One more lap sat between the four-time track champion and date with destiny and Wagner played it safe by driving through the middle of turn's one and two. He cruised down the backstretch, hit his marks in turn's three and four and completed the fairytale ending by taking the checkered flag by a margin of 1.440 seconds over Dewease and Macri.

"That was awesome to race Lance clean and I didn't know how many laps were left and I was just driving as hard as I could," said Wagner. "This is unbelievable. We passed him on the bottom. A few years ago I couldn't run a slick track to save my life and this is all about my Team Zemco guys and the track crew. I can't believe it!"

For Dewease, he was happy for Wagner but ultimately was disappointed in the runner-up result.

"Logan has been pretty good all week and pretty good all year and he deserved to win it and I didn't," said Dewease. "I drove 40 laps not being able to see, not being able to hit the pedal and it was just tough. We're not here for second though."

For Macri, it was his second consecutive season on the podium of the crown jewel event. He believed he had a chance, but needed a restart to get to the front.

"We had a plan to kind of conserve the first 25 laps and save our tires and my guys told me we were in good shape for the second 25," said Macri. "We got Logan on that one restart and it got called off right away and I was kind of swearing under my helmet. I guess that was maybe our best shot, but overall we had a third-place car and congrats to Logan and his guys on the win."

After not completing a lap in time trials or heat race action and coming up just short in the B-main, Blane Heimbach not only earned the 23rd Annual Will Gamble Award as the highest non-qualifying local driver, but he took a provisional to start the field and he charged forward from 29th to finish 12th an earn the $200 Valley Supply Hard Charger Award.

Kyle Reinhardt finished 23rd and as a result of a random draw in victory lane earned the $6000 J$S Fabrication Award presented by Jim & Sandy Kline. In total, Reinhardt brought home a total of $7500 as a result in his homecoming to Central Pennsylvania with the All Stars.

Michael Walter II earned a $1000 Hard Luck Award presented by Buttonwood Campground as the second highest non-qualifying local Port Royal driver, while Pat Cannon picked up $100 as the hard charger in the non-qualifier feature courtesy of Chapel's Country Creamery.

Wagner also earned $500 in memory of Alfred Jamison via his family and friends while Cory Eliason scored an additional $170 for his 17th-place finish via Turn It Up Media.

Kyle Moody made a last lap pass on Lynton Jeffrey in the non-qualifier feature pay off for $2100 and a guaranteed spot in next season's 55th Annual Tuscarora 50. All drivers competing in the non-qualifier race received an additional $100 via Valley Supply.

Daryn Pittman Picks Up 'The Night Before the 50' at Port Royal Speedway while Logan Wagner and Dylan Yoder Lock Up Track Championships

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway – PORT ROYAL, Pa. (Sept 11, 2021) – Daryn Pittman scored his third career Port Royal Speedway victory Friday night during the FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions Night Befiore the 50 presented by Tedd Reitz.

The win was Pittman's 10th career All Star triumph and was his first aboard the Swindell SpeedLab No. 39 in a part-time role. He now has 10 career All Star victories and with the win he secured a locked-in spot for Saturday's $54,000 to win Tuscarora 50 presented by Ramsey's Car Wash and Garage and Packer's Concessions, LLC..

"To get a win during Tuscarora 50 weekend and on this stage against this field is pretty special," said Pittman. "Obviously our goal is to be here tomorrow, but it's been a good weekend and we'll definitely savor this one a little bit."

Pittman and series regular Cory Eliason led the field of 28 cars to the green flagstand it was Pittman getting the early jump on the field. The top three drivers all settled into their positions, while sixth-place starter Anthony Macri moved into fourth on lap one.

The first caution of the event flew on lap two when Ryan Smith came to a slow on the frontstretch. Macri continued his march forward as he moved into third on the start, while fifth-place starter Rico Abreu followed suit into fourth.

By lap eight, the leaders were already in lapped traffic and Eliason took his first shot at the lead with a slide job attempt, but Pittman crossed back under to the lead, Meanwhile, Abreu also attempted a slider on Macri for third and Macri too pulled back ahead to hold the spot.

Things were starting to get dicey and it showed as Abreu and Macri got together entering turn one, with Abreu spinning and blowing a tire. Macri too did a 360 and both drivers were forced to the rear of the field as a result and would continue on. Eighth-place running Hunter Schuerenberg went to the pits as well with a flat tire.

Eliason again threw his very best slide job attempt at Pittman at the return to green-flag action, but again Pittman was too strong off the top. Two laps later, third-place running Lucas Wolfe was challenging for the runner-up spot as well and proving his $500 Packer's Concessions Fast Time Award earlier in the night was no fluke.

However, the second caution of the night flew on lap 13 for a slowing Justin Whittall to slow all momentum.

Eliason gave it the old college try on the restart, but it was Wolfe who was able to capitalize as he moved into the runner-up spot as a result. Seventh-place starter Gio Scezi moved into fourth on the following lap and two laps later just past the halfway mark 22nd-place starter Lance Dewease cracked the top-ten for the first time of the night.

After a bit of a slip up to start the race, fourth-place starter Logan Wagner found his footing and showed he'd be a contender as he moved into a podium on the same lap. Wagner was earlier crowned track champion for the fourth consecutive season after only needing to take the green.

On lap 19, Pittman was again marred in heavy lapped traffic and Wolfe and Wagner were starting to put the pressure on him for the lead. However, the red flag flew when fourth-place running Eliason made contact with the turn three guardrail and flipped upside down and over the fence. He was ok and a brief stoppage occurred to get the car un-lodged from the fence.

With clean air ahead of him, Pittman got a great restart and second through fourth settled into position. 10th-place starter Brian Brown cracked the top-five one lap later and Scelzi got by Wagner for a podium spot on lap 23.

However, the race was Pittman's to lose. With two laps to go, he closed in on the tail of the field, but Wolfe would not ever mount another comeback as he ultimately took the checkered flag by a margin of for the first time of the year.

Wolfe, Scelzi, Wagner and Brown rounded out the top five. Dewease, Justin Peck, Sye Lynch, Spencer Bayston and night one winner Brent Marks completed the top ten. Dewease earned the $200 Valley Supply Hard Charger by advancing 16 positions in the A-main and TJ Stutts earned the $1000 J&S Fabrication Warrior Award with a random number draw of 20.

"The cautions really played into our favor tonight and not getting into traffic much and clean air helped a ton," said Pittman. "I'd feel good for about three laps after each caution and then the car would kind of go away. I got to thank all my guys for getting me here and this is pretty cool."

For Wolfe he believes that he had a car capable of contending if not for multiple yellow flags. As a result of his win during last season's non qualifier feature victory, he's already locked into the Tuscarora 50 starting lineup.

"We never really got into traffic, so it was really clear sailing for the leader." said Wolfe. "This is a challenging track and challenging field, but we're pretty happy with a second and what we did tonight. We're already in the show, but I think you want to be near the front tomorrow and set ourselves up for 50 strong laps against a ton of strong cars. So we're definitely not resting on that spot."

410 Sprint Car Feature Results- (30 Laps): 1. Daryn Pittman; 2. Lucas Wolfe; 3. Gio Scelzi; 4. Logan Wagner; 5. Brian Brown; 6. Lance Dewease; 7. Justin Peck; 8. Sye Lynch; 9. Spencer Bayston; 10.

Jason Covert picked up the River Valley Builders Super Late Model feature victory from the fifth starting position after Trevor Feathers blew a tire while leading late in the 25-lap event. The win was worth $3500 courtesy of Lauver's Concessions.

A late caution threatened to provide opportunity for multiple drivers, however Covert was able to pull away with ease over the final two laps to take the checkered flag by a margin of 2.027 seconds.

Dylan Yoder, Andy Huas, Gary Stuhler and Jeff Rine completed the top-five, while Colton Flinner, Chad Myers, Tim Smith Jr., Jim Yoder and Andrew Wylie completed the top-ten.

While Covert scored the win, all eyes were on Yoder and Stuhler as the two entered the night only 10-points apart for the River Valley Builder Super Late Model championship. Stuhler entered the night as the leader, but with various scenarios giving the title to either him or Yoder, the race was on to the front of the field.

Both drivers stayed glued to each other throughout the race and whenever one passed a car, it seemed the other would come back with a pass themselves. With two laps to go, Yoder sat in third and Stuhler in fourth. Yoder needed to get to second to clinch his second title with the division, while Stuhler was in position to clinch his first title at the track.

Yoder tried a move on Haus for second on the white flag lap, but couldn't make the move stick. Exiting turn two on the final lap, Yoder smacked his tail off the guardrail and got a run down the backstretch on Haus, while all Stuhler could do was watch. Haus and Yoder entered turn three and Yoder threw a hellacious slider at Haus. The move paid off and Yoder came to the checkered flag as the 2021 champion, while Stuhler's storybook season came up short by only five markers.

Brent Marks Kicks Off Night 1 of the Tuscarora 50 with the All Stars in Victory Lane

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway – PORT ROYAL, Pa. (Sept 10, 2021) Brent Marks held off everything Bill Balog had to give to pick up the FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 feature victory at Port Royal Speedway Thursday night.

The 54th Annual Tuscarora 50 opener was worth $8000 courtesy of Folkens Brothers Trucking and Tedd Reitz and was Marks' first career win with the series. The win also moved Marks into a tie for 30th on the all-time win list at the Juniata County oval with Bobby Davis Jr., Bobby Weaver, Don Kreitz Jr., and Lucas Wolfe with 12 career triumphs.

"It's been a while since we had a super fast track like this and was definitely a little different than we are used to," said Marks. "We'll cherish this one tonight and come back for two more nights and I think we've got a shot come Saturday for the big money."

AJ Flick and Balog led the field of 28 cars to the green flag and it was Flick getting the quick jump on the field to lead lap one over Balog and Daryn Pittman.

With Flick in cruise control out front, Marks started his trek to the front from his fifth starting spit and he moved past Pittman for a podium spot on lap six. Two laps later Flick caught the tail-end of the field, which allowed Balog to pull to the tail tank of Flick coming to start/finish line.

Balog and Flick swapped the lead in turn's one and two and the two made slight contact in turn's three and four to give Balog the lead. The move also halted any momentum Flick had to make a return attempt and gave Marks the runner-up spot.

Marks and Balog traded sliders on each other multiple times over the next two laps and each time Balog was able to pull back ahead. Finally on lap 11, Marks was able to hold off Balog's crossover exiting turn four to lead the lap.

Balog settled into the runner-up position and one lap late Pittman moved past Flick to secure the third position. Two laps later served as a scare for Marks as he drove it into turn's three and four looking to dispatch of the lapped car of Jeff Halligan and Halligan got up over the cushion and smacked hard into the turn four gaurdrail to bring out the red flag.

"It got pretty wicked there in lapped traffic. Being up front and running wide open, I was just trying to be careful as I could," said Marks. "I want to apologize to the 45 car. We never made contact, but I just spooked him and he got into the wall. After that incident I knew I needed to be a little more careful in lapped traffic."

Meanwhile, 21st-place starter Rico Abreu was on the move as well, as he was sitting in the 13th position on the restart. Marks blasted out to the front on the restart and two laps later Abreu powered his way into the top ten.

Marks again blasted out to a hefty lead, while Balog stayed patient in second-place. With 11 laps remaining, Marks was again buried deep in lapped traffic. Staying true to his plan to be more patient, the slower pace allowed Balog to close the gap significantly.

With five laps to go, the pair sat 4 car-lengths apart on the Speedway and with Marks attempting to go around the outside of a lapped car entering turn one the following lap, Balog made his move. He slid under Marks to take the lead briefly, but Marks powered back by down the backstretch.

Balog regrouped and was setting himself up to make one final run at the leader, but one lap later the caution flew for a slowing Hunter Schuerenberg on the frontstretch and set up a three-lap dash for the win.

The clean air was all marks needed as he again busted out to a decent sized lead. That left Balog to fend off Pittman for the runner-up position, while Marks cruised to victory. Marks crossed under the checkered flag by a margin of 2.289 seconds over Balog, Pittman, Cory Eliason and Flick.

Lynton Jeffrey, Abreu, Aaron Reutzel, Brian Brown and Lucas Wolfe rounded out the top ten. Abreu earned the $200 Valley Supply Hard Charger, while 23rd-place finisher Blane Heimbach earned the $1000 J&S Fabrication Warrior Award via random draw as well.

"It's really hard as you're keeping such a torrid pace and then you get to lapped traffic and you've get slowed down and that means the guys behind you are catching you," said Marks. "I just tried to be as smart as possible there at the end and luckily we got that yellow and it allowed us to kind of regroup and control the pace."
For Balog, the runner-up finish was a nice relief following and up and down rookie season on the All Star tour.

"We weren't getting any worse as the race went on and we just kept getting better and better," said Balog. "I didn't realize there was only a handful of laps left and that caution kind of killed us. However I think we pretty much ran out of gas on the white flag lap, so I'm thankful for a second and we'll go from there."

Donny Wise started form the pole position and he led the first 10 laps of the feature. Schweibinz started the event in third and had moved into the runner-up position early in the event. He slipped by Wise for the feature with 10 laps to go and fifth-place starting Adams got past Wise as well for second one lap later.

A late caution with six laps remaining bunched the field back together, but the race was the rookies race to lose. Schweibinz went on to claim the checkered flag by a margin of 1.159 seconds to cap off the opening night of the Tuscarora 50.

The three-race weekend kicks off Thursday with a regular All Star sanctioned event presented by Folken's Brothers Trucking and Tedd Reitz paying $8000 to win. Also on the card will be the Penns Valley Meat Market PA Sprint Series 305 Sprint Cars.

Dave Grube is the current points leader in the 305 division and he also leads the division in wins for the 2021 season with two. He won in the series last visit to the Speedway on August 21st and holds a 25-point advantage over Garrett Bard in the standings. Austyin Reed (-175), Kassidy Kreitz (-300) and Doug Dodson (-300) round out the rest of the top five.

Friday's Night Before the 50 presented by Tedd Reitz will pay $10,000 to win and the River Valley Builders Super Late Models will also be on the card racing for $3500 courtesy of Lauver's Concessions. This event will also be the final points race of the season for both divisions.

Logan Wagner continues to be in full control of the Weikert's Livestock 410 Sprint Car points battle in search of his fourth consecutive title at the Speedway. Logan's father, Mike Wagner, sits second in the standings and trails by 230 markers. Dylan Cisney (-320), Jeff Halligan (-335) and Gerard McIntyre (-955) complete the rest of the top-five.

However, in the River Valley Builders Super Late Model division the battle for the championship is as close as it has been in recent memory. The ageless Gary Stuhler currently sits atop the standings by a mere 10-point margin over Dylan Yoder. Colton Flinner (-145), Jeff Rine (-310), and Ross Robinson (-345) complete the top-five. This would be Stuhler's first career track title at the Port Royal Speedway and would add to an illustrious resume for the Greencastle, Pa native affectionately known as 'Mr. Smooth'.

Finally, the three-race weekend ends with the most anticipated event of the year, the Tuscarora 50. The crown-jewel event is the highest paying race on the All Star Circuit of Champions schedule and has been won by the who's who of drivers over it's 54 years of being held.

There will also a full purse paying non-qualifier feature held on Saturday with the winner receiving $2000 and a guaranteed starting spot for next year's event. Lucas Wolfe earned the win and spot last season and is already locked into Saturday's finale as a result.

Last year Lance Dewease picked up his record seventh Tuscarora 50 title and made him a winner of the event in four different decades. Dewease is not scheduled to compete on Thursday night, but enters the weekend with 119 career Port Royal Speedway victories, which leaves him 10 shy of Keith Kauffman on the all-time wins list at the track.

Other past winners include Aaron Reutzel, Donny Schatz, Lance Dewease, Brent Marks, Greg Hodnett (4-time), Don Kreitz Jr. (3-time), Doug Esh (2-time), Stevie Smith (2-time), Brian Montieth, Mike Erdley, Fred Rahmer (4-time), Keith Kauffman (2-time), Todd Shaffer (3-time), Len Krautheim III, Bobby Allen (2-time), Doug Wolfgang (4-time), Dave Blaney, George Ferguson Jr, Smokey Snellbaker (2-time), Lynn Paxton (3-time), Gary Howsare, Jim Nace, Steve Smith, Kenny Weld and Mitch Smith (3-time).

The award typically pays $1000 to a random "hard luck" driver, but will pay $6000 for the Saturday night finale and all feature qualifying drivers will be eligible .

Danny Dietrich Breaks Through for Fourth Career Labor Day Classic Triumph at Port Royal Speedway

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway – PORT ROYAL, Penn (September 6, 2021) – Danny Dietrich powered forward from the seventh starting position to pick up the Foss Jewelers, Inc. 70th Annual Labor Day Classic presented by Tedd Reitz feature event Monday at Port Royal Speedway during the Juniata County Fair.

The win was worth $6000 and was Dietrich's fourth career triumph in the annual Labor Day event.

"Early on we were kind of going around the top in one and two, but I knew the rubber was going to come in," said Dietrich. "I thought for sure when the caution came out and I drove past Logan and Brent that I knew we weren't going to be able to do that again. Luckily we were able to get to the front early and we just had to hold one from there."

Doug Hammaker and Hunter Schuerenberg led the field to the green flag and after multiple failed attempts to start the feature, it was Schuerenberg getting the jump through the middle of turn's one and two. He'd lead lap one, but the feature was again halted after one lap when Tyler Walton spun around in turn one.

Schuerenberg again took off on the restart and he was in control early as fourth-place starter Brent Marks moved into second. Fifth-place starter Logan Wagner moved into a podium spot on lap four, while Dietrich followed suit and slid into the fourth spot as well.

One lap later it was 10th-plce starter Aaron Reutzel moving into sixth, but the caution again flew when Devon Borden got into the outside gaurdrail in turn two and came to a stop on the backstretch.

Marks saw his chances of a Labor Day triumph come to a screeching halt on the restart as he got sideways in turn two and did a 360 to bring out the caution and had to go to the rear of the field. Dietrich was able to capitalize on the restart and he slid under Wagner for the runner-up spot, but the caution would again fly as Wagner did a 360 after contact with Justin Peck in between turn's three and four.

Dietrich completed his march to the front after the restart as he got by Schuerenberg on the bottom of the track, while Reutzel got by Peck on lap seven for third. One lap later Reutzel got by Schuerenberg for the runner-up position, but with 15 laps to go Dietrich had already raced out to a 1.786 second advantage.

Marks frustrating evening came to a close two laps later as he spun out in turn four and he would retire from the event as a result. Dietrich got an excellent restart at the return to green, but racing would again come to a slow when 11th-place running Anthony Macri got on his side in turn four to bring out the red flag. He would be ok and retire form the event as a result.

An open red fuel stop would be an opportunity for all the challengers to improve their cars to take a shot at Dietrich, but with the rubber coming in at the bottom of the track and tire management a concern it was clear it was Dietrich's race to lose.

One more red flag would fly for a four-car incident in turn one after the restart, but a long green flag run to close the event gave Dietrich the needed space to rest easy up front. With five laps remaining, Dietrich's advantage over Reutzel was at 3.727 seconds and at the completion of the 25 lap event Dietrich crossed under the checkered flag by a 2.980 seconds amount.

Reutzel, Schuerenberg, Gerard McIntyre and Jeff Halligan rounded out the top five. Zach Newlin passed 17 cars to come home sixth and earn the $200 Valley Supply Hard Charger Award, while Spencer Bayston, Jared Esh, TJ Stutts and Mike Wagner rounded out the top-ten. Track points leader Logan Wagner rallied back for an 11th-place finish while 14th-place finisher Justin Peck earned the $1000 J&S Fabrication Warrior Award via random draw.

"It seems like every year we are really fast through the season, but come September and the month of money we tend to struggle," said Dietrich. "Hopefully we're beginning to hit our stride here and we can maybe pick up a few more of these wins. Fair week is always my favorite week of the year and the atmosphere in general at Port Royal is great. So we're happy to be here and see all these fans on a Monday afternoon watching racing."

For Reutzel, it was only his third race with a new race team and he was happy to come out of the event with a runner-up effort.

"I thought our car was great and that's why we made the haul here to see how we were on a daytime slick," he said. "If it would have maybe stayed green longer and not had so many yellow's, I passed those guys a few times and we could have had a shot at the win. To run second, I feel like we might have something for next weekend and that's why we're here."

BOB LEIBY MEMORIAL TWIN 20 FEATURES GO TO TYLER ESH AND ALAN KRIMES; Seth Kearchner Scores Legends Victory

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Saturday, September 11 (7:30 p.m.) Super Late Models, 358 Sprints (Summer Series) plus PASS/IMCA 305 Sprints plus EMMR Track Time

Saturday, September 18 (7:30 p.m.) DIRT CLASSIC VIII presented by Schmuck Lumber Company for All Star Sprints ($20,000 to win) [rain date: Sunday, August 19]

Saturday, September 25 (6:00 p.m.) PA Karting Grand Nationals

Abbottstown, PA (September 4, 2021) – Saturday night’s Bob Leiby Memorial featured Twin 20s for the second year in a row. The first 20-lap feature went to Tyler Esh. The victory was Esh’s second at the track, and his first since 2018. Esh started the season in the 358 sprint division and recently made the switch to race 410 sprints in his own car, “We got a good race car right now.” The first order of business in victory lane was pulling the invert for the start of the second feature. The options were 8, 10 or 12 and after pulling the 12 pill Esh shared, “We’re just going to go out and be smart in the second one and whatever happens, happens.”

The night honored the late Bob Leiby, who with his brothers promoted Lincoln and Williams Grove Speedway. The Leiby family has deep roots in Central PA racing with family members that race and some that are officials at local tracks. Esh is no stranger to what the Leiby family means to racing, “It’s great to win that race. I got to race with Chandler and Greg helped us. And they were there when I got hurt here in 2014. That was pretty cool to win for them.”

Both Glenndon Forsythe and Cory Haas challenged for the lead, but Esh held them off, “Yeah that was pretty exciting from my seat.”

Esh shared the front row of the first feature with Greg Plank. Esh led the field into turn 1 with Forsythe driving under Plank down the back stretch to take second.

Haas got under Plank going into turn 3 to take second on lap 2. Haas then went to work on Forsythe for second.

The yellow flag came out on lap 5 when Jordan Givler got turned around in turn 2.

Esh led Forsythe, Haas, Dylan Norris and Plank to the cone for the restart.

Forsythe went low into turn 1 to challenge Esh for the lead but Esh held on to the top spot.

Chase Dietz got by Plank to make his way into the top five and Tim Wagaman followed.

Haas took second from Forsythe at the line on lap 7.

The following lap saw Dietz get by Norris for fourth at the line.

Haas was closing in on Esh and had Esh’s lead down to .462 seconds at the halfway point.

Haas got his nose under Esh in turn 3 and the two raced side by side for the lead at the line on lap 12.

Lapped traffic loomed ahead of the leaders as they battled for first.

Greg Plank brought out the red flag on lap 13 when he flipped in turn 2 right in front of the leaders.

The top five for the restart were Esh, Haas, Forsythe, Dietz and Freddie Rahmer. Rahmer was up to fifth from his 15th starting spot.

Haas went low into turn 1 on the restart but Esh held on to the lead running the top.

Esh got to the checkered flag .645 seconds ahead of Haas. Forsythe crossed the line third and Dietz was fourth. Rahmer completed the top five. After the top five crossed the line, the red flag came out for Aaron Bollinger who took a nasty tumble coming out of turn 4 on the final lap. Bollinger had been running 11th.

ALAN KRIMES WINS SECOND TWIN 20 FEATURE

After earning the hard charger honors in the first feature, starting 24th and finishing 12th, Krimes lined up for the start of the second feature on the pole, “Starting up front there means an awful lot.”

The first Twin 20 feature saw Krimes advance 12 spots in just 20 laps. Esh, the winner of the first feature drew an inversion pill of 12 in victory lane, “We got fortunate there. We started last in that first one and were able to get up to 12th and at least give ourselves a shot to get in the redraw and luck fell our way when he drew the 12.”

Krimes and the #27 team were fighting issues earlier in the night that had carried over from the week before, “It was a rough night, we had all kinds of issues but to be standing here at the end of the night makes up for everything.”

Krimes took off like a rocket on the start and had a commanding lead over Tyler Ross and the rest of the field going into turn 1. Ross was holding off a challenge from Devon Borden. Brandon Rahmer and Tim Glatfelter raced wheel to wheel for fourth with Rahmer holding on to the spot.

Krimes entered lapped traffic on lap 6, right before the red flag came out on lap 7. Joe Kata flipped in turn 4 with Tyler Esh, the first feature winner, also involved. Krimes nearly missed the melee.

Krimes led Ross, Borden, Brandon and Glatfelter for the restart. Chase Dietz was all over Glatfelter for fifth but Glatfelter had different plans and went to work reeling in Rahmer for fourth instead.

Krimes had a 2.5 second lead on lap 10. Freddie Rahmer was battling his brother, Brandon, to get into the top five. As the brothers battled Dietz drove by Freddie to take sixth.

Krimes was in lapped traffic again but it did not slow him down.

Krimes crossed the line 2.104 seconds ahead of Ross for his second win of the season. Borden finished third and Glatfelter was fourth. Dietz completed the top five. Chad Trout was the hard charger, driving from 16th to 10th.

Seth Kearchner Scores Legends Victory

Seth Kearchner’s second career win at Lincoln on Saturday night came with a last lap pass of Jeremy Ott, denying Ott a spot at the top of the all-time win list.

Aaron Updegraff started on the pole of the 20-lap feature with Travis McClelland lined up to his outside.

McClelland had the lead by inches at the line when the green flag dropped. Ott got by Updegraff for second.

Stephen Wurtzer and Blaine Leppo raced side by side at the line with Wurtzer having the slight advantage for fourth.

Ott looked under McClelland for the lead with McClelland holding on to the top spot by half a car length on lap 4.

Lap 4 saw the yellow flag come out when Choya Young and Lincoln Kearchner got together on the inside of turn 4.

McClelland led Ott, Updegraff, Wurtzer and Leppo on the restart. Ott was on McClelland's bumper and the top two pulled away from the rest of the field.

Wurtzer looked under Updegraff down the back stretch and dove into turn 3 to take third on lap 5. Leppo tried to follow and moved by Updegraff for fourth but Updegraff had the spot back as they raced down the back stretch.

Seth Kearchner, Leppo and Updegraff raced three wide for fourth with Leppo taking the spot.

Wurtzer tracked down the leaders. Ott got under McClelland coming out of turn 2 for the lead but the caution came out before the pass was official. The yellow came out on lap 9 for Cody Altland in turn 2.

The top five for the restart were McClelland, Ott, Wurtzer, Leppo and Kearchner. The caution came out again on the restart when Richie Dobson got sideways on the front stretch.

Kearchner raced wheel to wheel with Leppo for fourth down the back stretch but Leppo held the spot at the line.

Ott once again got under McClelland for the lead coming out out of turn 2 and this time it was official with Ott taking the lead on lap 11.

Wurtzer and Leppo battled for third with Kearchner also in the mix. Kearchner got by Leppo for fourth.

The caution came out on lap 15 for second place running McClelland. As Ott, McClelland and Wurtzer battled for the lead, McClelland got spun around on the back stretch. Logan Carbaugh was also collected.

Ott led Wurtzer, Kearchner, Leppo and Bob Stough on the restart with five laps to go.

Wurtzer got under Ott in turn 2 and the two raced wheel to wheel down the back stretch. The race was nearly three wide for the lead at the line between Ott, Wurtzer and Kearchner with Ott holding the lead. The three were three wide coming out of turn 4 when the white flag waved. Kearchner got to the inside of Ott down the backstretch and had the lead when the checkered flag waved. Ott finished second, only .096 seconds behind Kearchner. Stough crossed the line third and Wurtzer was fourth. Leppo completed the top five.

With his sixth place finish, Bill Diehl claimed the track championship for the Central PA Legends.

Gregg Satterlee and Dillan Stake Earn Butch Renninger Memorial Victories While Lance Dewease Scores Win No. 119 at Port Royal

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway – PORT ROYAL, Pa. (Sept. 5, 2021) – If Saturday night's finish is of any idea of what might be coming during next weekend's 54th Annual Tuscarora 50 presented by Ramsey's Car Wash and Garage and Packer's Concessions, LLC., it's safe to say Lance Dewease has reason to be excited.

Dewease powered forward from the 12th starting spot to pick up his 119th career Port Royal Speedway victory over Mike Wagner and Brent Marks. Courtesy of Lauver's Concessions, the Juniata County Fair opener paid $5000 to win and sets up Dewease heading into the biggest week of the year for the Weikert's Livestock 410 Sprint Cars.

"Our car really seems to be struggling in dirty air, but in clean air we had one heck of a race car," said Dewease. "We love this racetrack and we love this weekend and upcoming week. We'll work to get the car better in the dirty air and try again to make it work for 50 laps here next week."

TJ Stutts and Curt Stroup led the field to the green flag and it was Stroup getting the early advantage and leading lap one. Sixth-place starter Brent Marks was on the move early as he powered into the fourth position on lap two.

Stutts took his first shot at Stroup on lap five by attempting a slider in turn's one and two, but Stroup had the momentum down the backstretch and regained the lead. Meanwhile, ninth place starter Mike Wagner cracked the top-five, while Dewease moved into sixth as well.

Marks got shuffled back as far as ninth on the grid, but started to regain his touch on lap seven as he moved back into seventh and two laps later Stutts was able to execute the slider in turn's one and two to take the lead from Stroup. The first caution of the event flew one lap later for debris on the frontstretch.

When the field returned to green, Dewease made his move and with 14 to go he was in fourth. One lap later he moved past Stroup for third and the following lap he dispatched of Pat Cannon for the runner-up spot. Marks was also coming on strong as he moved into fourth as well.

With ten to go, Dewease was all over the tail tank of Stutts and one lap later he pulled the trigger and slid past him in turn's three and four for the race-winning move. One lap later Marks moved into a podium spot and with five laps to go, Dewease held a 1.191 second advantage over Stutts.

The final caution of the event flew with two laps remaining when Danny Dietrich blew a right rear tire while running sixth and came to a stop on the backstretch. Cannon also pulled off the Speedway under yellow with a flat while running fifth.

Wagner brought the field to their feet following the restart as he used the bottom of turn's three and four to go from fourth to second on the white flag lap. However, Dewease got a great jump on the restart and went untouched over the final two laps to take the win by 1.556 seconds.

Brian Brown advanced 13 positions to finish in fourth, while Stutts faded to fifth to complete the top five. Ryan Smith, Logan Wagner, Anthony Macri, Stroup and Dylan Cisney rounded out the top ten. Macri earned the Valley Supply Hard Charger award after gaining 15 positions from his 23rd starting spot. 19th-place finisher Mike Walter II earned the J&S Fabrication Warrior Award worth $1000 courtesy of a random draw.

"We lost the brakes there late after getting into the outside guardrail, but the car was just so good in clean air," said Dewease. "I've got to thank these fans for coming out here and supporting this event and this track with such passion. And for those of you fans who didn't know Butch Renninger, he was one hell of a good man. My wife and his daughter were best friends growing up and he was the nicest guy and this means a lot to win here tonight."

For Wagner, it was a matter of too little, too late, but he was happy with his run to second.

"Earlier in the first caution I thought we were pretty good, but we got backed up and lost a few spots," said Wagner. "When that last one came out I thought here we go again, but those guys left me a lane and we were actually running pretty good there at the end. There some big money on the line here coming up and we want to have a shot at bringing home some of it."

410 Sprint Car Feature Finish (25 Laps): 1. Lance Dewease; 2. Mike Wagner; 3. Brent Marks; 4. Brian Brown; 5. T.J. Stutts; 6. Ryan Smith; 7. Logan Wagner; 8. Anthony Macri; 9. Curt Stroup; 10. Dylan Cisney; 11. Gerard McIntyre Jr.; 12. Tyler Bear; 13. Justin Whittall; 14. Lucas Wolfe; 15. Jeff Halligan; 16. Danny Dietrich; 17. Trenton Sheaffer; 18. Pat Cannon; 19. Mike Walter II; 20. Jared Esh; 21. Landon Myers; 22. Zach Hampton; 23. Drew Ritchey; 24. Kody Lehman.

Gregg Satterlee became the first driver to win three Butch Renninger Memorial Race's in the history of the event as he drove his way forward to capture the victory Saturday night as part of the 167th Annual Juniata County Fair opener.

The 18th running of the event sanctioned by the ULMS Racing Series paid an all-time high of $6333 and was Satterlee's 13th career victory at the Speedway, which moved him into sole possession of 21st on the all-time career win list at the Speedway in the division.

"This is one of my favorite races of the year to come to," said Satterlee."I didn't know Butch, but it's fun to hear about how much he meant to Port Royal and what all he did racing. It's fun to win races, but it's even better when it's something like this."

Opening day winner Trevor Feathers and Michael Norris led the field of 28 cars to the green flag and it was Norris getting the early jump and leading lap one of the event. Satterlee, who started fifth, was on the march forward early as he moved into fourth at the completion of lap one.

Fast time award winner from earlier in the night, Max Blair, moved into the runner-up position on the second lap and Satterlee followed suit to crack the podium as well. It would only take three more laps for Satterlee to get past Blair for second and the Rochester Mills, Pa. native set his sights on Norris.

Track points leader Dylan Yoder started the event form the 14th position and was already up to eight by the completion of lap seven, while one lap later Norris was buried in heavy lapped traffic with over a 1.5 second advantage over Satterlee.

Satterlee took advantage of Norris's struggles and one lap later he cut a full second off the lead and only trailed by .619 of a second. However, the caution flew for a slowing Drake Troutman on the frontstretch and bunched the field back together.

The caution was all Satterlee needed as he chose the top line during a 'Delaware Restart' and he set up Norris perfectly on the restart to slide by the leader entering turn one to lead lap 10. Gary Stuhler also capitalized on the restart as he went form fifth to third as well.

With 20 laps remaining Satterlee had worked up his advantage over Norris to 2.536 seconds, but lapped traffic again reared his ugly head three laps later and allowed Norris to cut the advantage to 1.593 seconds.

Norris again cut the distance in half with 15 to go and on lap 20 he was all over Satterlee in lapped traffic. Norris and Satterlee swapped the lead exiting turn two and Satterlee held the advantage entering turn three, but Norris was able to inch forward heading to the line to lead lap 21.

The caution flew for the second time of the race one lap later when Deshawn Gingerich spun in turn four and while under yellow-flag conditions Norris was forced to hand over the point as he discovered a flat left-front tire.

Norris's misfortune proved to be Satterlee's gain as he regained the lead as a result and when the field went back to green it was Rick Eckert gaining two spots to move into the runner-up position. 15th-place starter Jason Covert cracked the top-five the following lap as well and he moved into fourth with nine laps remaining.

However, nobody had anything for Satterlee as he quickly built up a 3.319 second advantage with six laps remaining. With four laps to go, Satterlee caught the tail end of the field again, but he was not to be denied as he cruised home to the victory by 3.682 seconds over Eckert, Blair, Covert and Stuhler.

Kyle Lee, Alex Ferree, Yoder, Jared Miley and Dan Stone rounded out the top ten. Colton Flinner rebounded from a heat race crash to go from 26th to 11th to earn the Georges Used Cars Hard Charger Award.

"I've got to thank the Renninger family, the fans and just everyone who comes together to make a race like this happen for us drivers," said Satterlee. "I hate to see Mikey get a flat there and I would have loved to have raced it out there at the end. I was kind of just biding my time there getting ready for a late battle and I guess luck was just on our slide tonight."

Dillan Stake capitalized on a front row starting spot to take home the Selinsgrove Ford Limited Late Model Butch Renninger Memorial event victory and the record-setting $5033 prize that came with it.

Thanks to a multitude of sponsors, the event was the highest paying Limited Late Model race in the history of the Speedway. For Stake, the win was his second career win at the Speedway and the biggest triumph of his career.

"I'm kind of speechless right now," said Stake. "Honestly if Devin or Trent couldn't win this race, I wanted to as the Renninger family is like a second family to me. I'll say it again, I'm just speechless."

Shawn Shoemaker and Stake led the field to the green flag and it was Shoemaker getting the early jump on the field and leading lap one. One lap later Stake got by Shoemaker to grab the lead.

Stake stayed steady up front, but as he approached lapped cars on lap 10, Shoemaker was all over his tail. The two cars raced nose to tail for the next two circuits before the caution flew with 12 to go.

Stake stayed on the bottom of the track on the restart, while Shoemaker went to the high side The two again stayed within striking distance of each other and with six to go Stake held close to a 1.0 second advantage.

Shoemaker cut the deficit in half with four laps remaining, but a red flag halted action after a four car pile-up in turn one. All drivers would be ok.

The race stoppage proved beneficial to Stake as his crew was able to give him advice on where the run to hold off Shoemaker. Stake went untouched over the final four circuits to claim the victory by a margin of .517 seconds.

Shoemaker, Todd Snook, Devin Hart and Trent Brenneman rounded out the top-five. Matt Parks, Casey Steinhoff, Barry Miller, Shaun Miller and Derick Quade rounded out top ten.

"I knew Shawn was ripping the top up there, but I didn't feel like we needed to go there yet," said Stake. "I was kind of worried there with my tires late, but that red actually kind of helped me. I told my guys if I needed to go to the top to just send me, but we held on this is just really cool."

For Shoemaker, he felt like the cautions stalled his chances at victory.

"The cautions just killed us and I wad really hoping to go straight through green," said Shoemaker. "At the end of the day there were a lot of good cars here and to be one of the top three is nothing to sneeze at. I'm proud of how we ran and this is a great event."

RYAN LILICK WINS NASCAR T.P.TRAILERS MODIFIED FEATURE FOR FIRST TIME AT GRANDVIEW

 TOMMY KUNSMAN WINS ARDC MIDGET FEATURE

BECHTELSVILLE, PA. Sept. 5, 2021 . . . Ryan Lilick, behind the wheel of the Dennis and Debbie Becker-owned No. 49, avoided all accidents in the caution filled 30-lap 358 NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Weekly Series T.P. Trailers Modified feature on Saturday night at Grandview Speedway to score his first career victory in the division. Prior to switching to the Modified division a few years ago, he had won seven Sportsman features.

The T.P. Truck Equipment 25-lap Sportsman feature was also marred with several cautions. At the conclusion defending champion Brian Hirthler put the Green Lane/Wm. Penn/4-Star Lettering mount in victory lane for his fifth win of the season by a comfortable margin over runner-up Jimmy Leiby.

The ARDC 20-lap Midget feature was a photo finish down-to-the wire race between winner tommy Kunsman and second-place finisher Steve Buckwalter.

Bobby Gunther Walsh led the early laps of the Modified feature once it got underway after a backstretch tangle that brought out the red since the track was blocked before any laps could be recorded.

The yellow came out again on the fourth lap when Jeff Strunk was in the third turn wall and had a right and left flat tire and Kevin Hirthler sustained a left front flat tire. Strunk was through for the night, but Hirthler continued. Gunther Walsh continued his pace on the restart with Ron Kline putting in his bids for the lead.

On the seventh lap restart caused when Cory Merkel stopped in the third turn, Kline, the 2005 Late Model point champion, took to the outside lane and charged into the lead. Lilick followed through for second at the same time to pressure him.

A multi-car fourth turn mishap on the 12th lap brought out the yellow. On this restart Lilick charged to the front of the pack followed by Brad Grim, Doug Manmiller, Craig Von Dohren and Kline. Trying to break into the top five was Brett Kressley, who was involved in the opening red that sent him pit side. He was able to rejoin the rear of the field when he returned.

The final caution was with 10 laps to go after Jesse Leiby got into the wall between turns three and four. Before the race went green again Brad Brightbill, last week’s feature winner, dropped out of competition. The running order behind Lilick on the restart now consisted of Manmiller, Von Dohren, B. Grim and Duane Howard.

Lilick never looked back once he became the new leader, but he kept a watch on the scoreboard so he knew who was running where. The finishing order certainly changed as Kressley was on the move and finished second followed by current point leader and defending champion Von Dohren, Manmiller and Howard. Rounding out the top ten were B. Grim, Mike Lisowski, Kline, Justin Grim and Brad Arnold.

Heats were won by Gunther Walsh, Kline and Joe Funk. Jared Umbenhauer won the consi.

Polesitter Colten Perry took the early lead at the wave of the green in the Sportsman feature trailed by B.J. Joly, coming off from a win in the Outlaw Sportsman Vintage feature at the track the previous night; Adrianna Delliponti, Joey Vaccaro and Tyler James.

Lap 13 was a lucky one for Joly as he was able to overtake Perry to become the new pacesetter.

Jimmy Leiby took over second on the 15th lap to challenge Joly, but the next time around Hirthler was in the runner-up position.

Perry spun between the first and second turn bringing out the yellow on the 17th circuit. On the restart Hirthler and Leiby were one and two with Joly, current point leader Kenny Gilmore and Vaccaro now third through fifth.

In no time Hirthler had a comfortable lead built up and continued to claim his 12th career win. Following him across the line were Leiby, Gilmore, Dylan Hoch and Joly. Sixth through tenth were Ryan Beltz, Vaccaro, Dakota Kohler, Tyler James and Chris Esposito.

Heats were won by Cole Stangle, Vaccaro and Delliponti. Beltz won the consi.

The final NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Weekly Series point standings will be decided on Saturday, September 11, with the running of the Hope Mortgage Team Championship Night for Modifieds and Sportsman. And there will be a fireworks display to go with the expected fireworks on the track. It will all get started at 7:30 p.m.

Zach Curtis led one lap of the Midget feature before Kunsman motored into the lead on the second lap followed for second by Brett Wanner.

At the half-way point, Kunsman was first, but now Buckwalter was in second in pursuit of the leader.

Kunsman’s sizeable lead was erased when Steve Craig slowed in the second turn for the only caution on lap 15.

The last five laps Kunsman and Buckwalter ran side-by-side battling for the lead. Buckwalter overtook the lead on the white flag lap, but coming in for the checkered Kunsman made a bold move to regain control as the pair crossed the line by a mere .012 seconds difference. Wanner was third followed by Kevin Woody, Curtis, Mike Markey, J.R. Booth, Shannon Mousteller, Craig and Mark Sokol.

Buckwalter and Kunsman were the heat winners.

Marks Wires For Williams Grove Todd Shaffer Tribute Win, Locke Scores Seventh Win In 358 Sprints

9/3/21

Mechanicsburg –Brent Marks led flag to flag to pick up the $6,088 victory in Friday night’s Todd Shaffer Tribute Race for 410 sprint cars at Williams Grove Speedway.

The special event saw three-time track champion Shaffer of Millerstown feted before and during the event that he capped off by serving as honorary starter.

Marks drew the pole for the start of the 25-lap tribute race and jetted into control over TJ Stutts and Brian Brown as soon as Shaffer dropped the green flag.

The first caution flag of the race appeared with four laps completed for a stopped Freddie Rahmer.

Brown wrestled second away from Stutts on the restart but failed to close on Marks as both Danny Dietrich and Lance Dewease started advancing.

By lap 11 Marks was working the backmarkers as Dietrich was working Brown for second.

The pair battled for the spot, swapping it a times, until lap 17 when Dietrich finally seized it for good.

With Dewease now up to third, Dietrich was trying to run down Marks in traffic with the second and final yellow of the race unfurled with three laps to go.

Marks got away on the restart to pick up the win by 1.481 seconds.

It was the second of the season for Marks at Williams Grove and his 10th overall victory of the season.

“My car was really good,” Marks said, “To get our 10th win of the year is really special.”

“I raced against Todd for a few years when I got started. He was my mom’s favorite driver when I was growing up. It’s great to win a race in his honor.”

Dietrich was second followed by Dewease, Anthony Macri and Brown.

Sixth through 10th went to Steve Buckwalter, TJ Stutts, Chase Dietz, Matt Campbell and Lucas Wolfe.

Campbell won the “Mr. Excitement” Hard Charger Award worth $550 as posted by members of Shaffer’s pit crew during his entire career.

Campbell advanced to ninth at the finish after starting the race 19th in the field.

Heats went to Stutts, Marks and Wolfe

Macri set fast time with a lap of 17.000 seconds.

Derek Locke won for the seventh time this season in the 358 sprint car division.

He took the lead from Matt Findley on the seventh lap after starting third in the field.

Locke has been the only driver to win at the track this season.

Findley finished second followed by Chris Frank, Justin Foster and Tyler Brehm.

Heats went to Justin Foster and Matt Findley.

167th Annual Juniata County Fair Kicks Off with 18th Annual Butch Renninger Memorial

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway – PORT ROYAL, Pa. (September 1, 2021) – Port Royal Speedway returns on Saturday, Sept. 4, 2021, with the 167th Annual Juniata County Fair opener highlighted by the 18th Annual Butch Renninger Memorial Race featuring the ULMS Racing Series Late Models, the Selinsgrove Ford Limited Late Models and the Weikert's Livestock 410 Sprint Cars.

The event honors the legendary Butch Renninger, who sits fourth on the all-time winners list in the Super Late model division with 41 career victories and three track championships (1966, 1967 and 1970) to his name. He also was a former track champion in the Enduro division in 2003 and is the second all-time winningest driver in the division with four victories. Renninger also served diligently on the board of the speedway for decades and oversaw track preparation and concessions during that time.

Aside from racing, Renninger was a local Juniata County resident, a family-man, a husband, father, a friend and a businessman. He was the kind of man that our little slice of heaven in Juniata County could be proud of and his legacy still lives today in those he knew and those who carry on with the same sense of hard work and kindness he lived with.

Well after his time behind the wheel had concluded, it was individuals like Renninger behind the scenes pushing on to make the Port Royal Speedway successful and without him our little track could have never reached the heights it has today. Just like many of his Juniata County locals, he gave his life to Port Royal and our sport and it's that love and passion that continues today. As a matter of fact, his two grandsons, Devin Hart and Trent Brenneman, still take to the track weekly in a No. 33 in his honor. While Butch Renninger left us too early, it is guaranteed he has not been forgotten and traces of his life run rampant every time the green flag drops at the Speed Palace.

You can't understand your future without embracing your past and this race and Butch Rennigner does that perfectly as we continue to take Port Royal Speedway into the hearts and minds of race fans all over the country for years to come.

Since it's inception in 2005, Jeff Rine (2011, 2017) and Gregg Satterlee (2012, 2016) are the only two drivers to score multliple victories in the event. Other past winners of the race are Steve Campbell (05), Scott Haus (06), Mitch Hack (07), Jere Wierman (08), Tim Wilson (09), Waylon Wagner (2010), Jason Covert (2013), Justin Kann (2014), Dylan Yoder (2015), Tyler Bare (2018), Max Blair (2019) and Mason Zeigler (2020). Haus has earned the most top-five finishes during the event with five top-five finishes.

The ULMS Late Models will be competing for a cool $6,333, while the Limited Late Models will be competing for an unheard of $5,033. Both winner's shares will be all-time highs for the event and will certainly bring extra excitement to an already prestigious event for the fendered cars.

Specific to the limited late model division, this will be the largest paying race for them in the history of the division and quite possibly the state. Not only will this add prestige and excitement to the event, it shows the continued growth of the Speedway and it's support of all the divisions that compete at it regularly.

Crate motors will not be permitted to participate in the Limited Late Model portion of the event.

The 410 Sprint Cars will race for $5000 to win courtesy of Lauver's Concessions in preparation for a big week of racing for the division.

Entering the weekend, the points chase for the Super Late Models is one the tightest and most exciting in recent memory at the Speedway. Dylan Yoder holds a narrow 5-point advantage over Gary Stuhler, followed by Ross Robinson (-35), Colton Flinner (-120) and Jeff Rine (-275). Remarkably, none of the top four drivers in the standings have yet to win a race in 2021.

In Limited Late Model competition, Devin Hart enters the weekend as the series points leader by a 150 points over second-place Shawn Shoemaker. Andrew Yoder (-235), Todd Snook (-385), and Kenny Yoder (-405) round out the top five.

Finally, in the 410 Sprint Car division, Logan Wagner appears well on his way to his fourth consecutive points championship as he holds a 265-point advantage over his father, Mike Wagner. Dylan Cisney (-280), Jeff Halligan (-325) and Gerard McIntyre (-970) round out the top five.

To make this event happen, several key sponsors have come on board in support of it and the Renninger family legacy. Packer's Concessions, LLC., Weikert’s Livestock, Mifflin Hill Beverage, Beerhill Gang TV, Mike Cleck Paving & Sealcoating, Inc., RV 4 Wheel Drive & Performance Automotive Inc and an anonymous friend of the Speedway have all chipped in various amounts to push the purses to new heights.

Also up for grabs for the drivers in competition will be several contingency awards presented by several more sponsors. Both the Super Late Models and the Limited Late Models will receive lap sponsor bonuses that will pay $33 per lap courtesy of fans and various sponsors.

In the Super Late Model division, heat race winners will receive $333 courtesy of Tedd Reitz, while fast time in qualifying will receive $133 courtesy of Snyder’s Radiator Shop.. There will also be a $133 hard luck award for the first non-qualifier courtesy of Gullwing Aviation, LLC and Pellman Trade.

Also, $50 will go to 2nd in each super late model heat courtesy of Keister Karting Products and a $150 hard charger award courtesy of Barron’s Racing Engines!

For the Limited Late Model division, heat race winners will receive $100 each courtesy of Garman Concrete & Construction, while the Fast-Time Award winner will receive $133 courtesy of the The Gridiron Pub-New Page. Gullwing Aviation will present a hard-luck award of $133 to the first non-qualifier, while Pellman Trade will offer $33 extra to the highest finishing Juniata County driver in the field.

Also, $33 will go to 2nd in each limited late model heat courtesy of Bill and Kay Weimer and a $333 hard charger award courtesy of Zimmerman Truck Repair.

Admission for the event will be $25 for General Admission, $10 for Students and $35 for Pits Admission. Gates will open at 3:00pm EST, while racing is scheduled to kick off at 6:00pm EST.

LINCOLN SPEEDWAY

Abbottstown, PA

CORY ELIASON BESTS PA POSSE IN KRAMER KLASH VICTORY; Jeremy Ott Ties Legends All-Time Win Record

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Saturday, September 4 (7:30 p.m.) BOB LEIBY MEMORIAL: Twin 20s for 410 Sprints, plus Central PA Legends and Fireworks

Saturday, September 11 (7:30 p.m.) Super Late Models, 358 Sprints (Summer Series) plus PASS/IMCA 305 Sprints

Saturday, September 18 (7:30 p.m.) DIRT CLASSIC VIII presented by Schmuck Lumber Company for All Star Sprints ($20,000 to win) [rain date: Sunday, August 19]

Abbottstown, PA (August 28, 2021) – Cory Eliason has been on a hot streak recently with the All Star Circuit of Champions. Eliason has 12 top 10 finishes in his last 13 races including a win last weekend and now the Kramer Klash victory on Saturday night.

Despite leading wire to wire, it was not an easy win for Eliason as a slew of early race incidents kept the drivers out on the track for longer than usual. “It’s been a long night, I’m definitely kind of winded now. It seemed like I just ran 100 laps for 35.” In addition to the feature, Eliason’s team faced challenges earlier in the night, “It was a long night, especially for the guys. An engine expired in the heat race, and we changed that and got going again.”

After the early race carnage Eliason was able to get in a rhythm, “Once we got running it kind of seemed like it cleaned off.” Lapped traffic came into play on lap 9 for the leader, “I got behind lapped traffic and they were bottom, middle and top and I really didn’t know what to do. I’ve been in that situation before where I come way to close to them and put myself in a bad position. So, I left the door open to see how much of a lead I had or when somebody was going to poke in there.”

The Central PA month of money coincides with the All Star’s upcoming visits and Eliason hitting his stride could not have come at a better time, “Since then (Knoxville) we’ve been really fast, and I’ve been super comfortable. I’ve been driving the absolute day lights out of this thing.”

Two Kramer Williamson cars paced the field ahead of the 35-lap Kramer Klash. One was Justin Peck’s Williamson tribute car and the second was Kramer’s daughter, Felicia Williamson in one of his famous pink #73 sprint cars.

Eliason started on the pole with Zeb Wise to his outside. Eliason led the field into 1 but the caution came out for Tyler Ross before a lap was in the books.

The field lined up for a complete restart with Eliason once again taking the lead.

This time the red flag flew before a lap was completed. Cory Haas, Matt Campbell, Freddie Rahmer, JJ Grasso, Tim Glatfelter and Cap Henry piled up in turn 1. Haas, Glatfelter and Henry all got upside down. Rahmer, Grasso and Glatfelter rejoined the field.

The field lined up for their third attempt at a clean start. Eliason took the lead with Wise in second and Parker Price Miller in third.

Hunter Schuerenberg got under Robbie Kendall for fourth in turn 1 on the first lap. Schuerenberg and Kendall got together at the opposite end of the track with Kendall taking a ride in turn 4. Ian Madsen, Devon Borden, Brent Marks and Chase Dietz got collected as well when the red came out.

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY

MACRI TURNS IN PERFECT PERFORMANCE IN SELINSGROVE 410 SPRINT CAR GUNN MEMORIAL; BRENNEMAN REPEATS IN FINAL LIMITED LATE MODEL EVENT; LAWTON AWARDED FIRST WIN IN ROADRUNNER RACE

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Anthony Macri of Dillsburg turned in a perfect performance during Saturday night’s Acme Companies 41st annual Jack Gunn Memorial for 410 sprint cars.

Macri set fast time with a lap of 16.175, won his heat race, then dueled with Pat Cannon of Etters for his exciting win in the 30-lap tribute race. He earned $5,000 for his first win of the season at Selinsgrove and seventh overall in 410 sprint car competition at the wheel of the Macri Concrete/J&S Fabrication No. 39M. It was his third career win at the Snyder County oval.

Trent Brenneman of Port Royal wired the field for his second win in a row in the 20-lap limited late model race, while Curtis Lawton of Bloomsburg was awarded the win in the 12-lap roadrunner feature when the car driven by Brad Mitch of McClure was disqualified during a post-race inspection.

Devin Hart of Port Royal clinched the limited late model series championship in the division’s final race of the season.

Selinsgrove Speedway will present the Selinsgrove Ford National Open Qualifier for the 410 sprint cars plus super late models (ULMS) and roadrunners at 7 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 5. The 30-lap main events for the 410 sprint cars and super late models will each pay $5,000 to win. Track gates open at 4 p.m.

Polesitter Pat Cannon powered into the lead at the start of the sprint car Gunn Memorial. He was chased by third-place starter Anthony Macri for the first lap until fifth-place starter Ryan Smith advanced to second.

An intense battle unfolded early in the race between Cannon, Smith, and Macri, with Macri reclaiming the runner up spot on lap three. By lap eight, the leaders encountered slower traffic.

On the 13th circuit, Cannon and Macri raced wheel to wheel for the lead with Cannon maintaining the edge. On lap 18, Macri pulled off a thrilling slider in turn two to take the lead away from Cannon.

With 10 laps remaining, Macri led Cannon, Smith, fourth-place starter Danny Dietrich, and 12th-place starter Jason Shultz.

On lap 22, Cannon’s car rolled to a stop in turn two with a flat tire, ending an impressive run. On the final restart, Macri stormed to victory over Smith, Dietrich, Blane Heimbach, and Shultz.

Polesitter Trent Brenneman took the lead at the drop of the green flag in the limited late model feature and raced mostly uncontested. On the first lap, seventh-place starter Andrew Yoder, who was in contention for the division’s series title, withdrew from the race.

By lap five, Brenneman had already opened up a straightaway lead over fifth-place starter Todd Snook while second-place starter JR Toner pressured third-place starter Jim Yoder for the third spot.

A caution on lap nine for debri regrouped the field with Brenneman quickly stretching his lead again. Then a seven-car pileup on lap 11 stopped the race; there were no driver injuries and most of the cars were able to restart the race.

In the final laps of the race, Brenneman opened up a comfortable lead and posted the win over Snook, Yoder, fourth-place starter Devin Hart, and Toner.

Second-place starter Curtis Lawton pulled into the lead at the start of the roadrunner feature. Lawton was trailed by third-place starter Nate Romig for the first lap until fourth-place starter Keith Bissinger took over the runner-up position.

A tight four-car battle unfolded at the front of the pack between Lawton, Bissinger, fifth-place starter Adam Campbell, and Romig. Brad Mitch, who started at the back of the pack, worked his way into the top five.

With two laps to race, Mitch stormed into second and set his sights on Lawton. Mitch made the pass for the lead and checkered flag on the final lap only to have his car disqualified during a post-race tech inspection.

Lawton was awarded the win over Bissinger, Romig, Smith Cope, and Tom Underwood.

BECHTELSVILLE, PA (AUGUST 26, 2021) – NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series returned to Grandview Speedway on Thursday Night for a 410 Sprint Car and Modified doubleheader. Tyler “Sunshine” Courtney picked up the 6th Annual Levan Machine and Truck Equipment Thunder Cup and Brett “The Threat” Kressley won the 358 Modified main event worth $3,500 in a single-lap shootout to the checkered flag. A field of twenty-six 410 sprints and thirty modifieds filled the pit area on a hot, hot summer night that also offer the threat of rain all around the Bechtelsville speedway. The Pioneer Pole Building $1,500 first time Thunder on the Hill modified winner bonus remained unclaimed although Matt Stangle was in the hunt for the $5,000 first place prize after leading a good portion of the race. Stangle turned in a very impressive fourth place finish.

“Sunshine” an Indianapolis native scored the $6,000 winner’s share and the 6th Annual Levan Machine and Truck Equipment Thunder Cup trophy with a close win over Dillsburg, PA’s Anthony Macri. The two sprint cars touched as they charged off turn four in the final run to the checker flag.

“Anthony is aggressive and fun to race with, he ran me real clean. I almost gave that one away,” Courtney said of the second-place finisher and the contact they made coming down to the checkered flag. “It’s so good to get a winged Sprint Car win in Pennsylvania, it’s a good way to start our weekend.”

This All Star Circuit of Champions win marked Courtney’s eighth of the 2021 season, and his first Thunder on the Hill win – having competed for multiple years on ‘The Hill’ with the USAC Non-Wing Sprints.

Zeb Wise started on the front row of the 35-lap All Star A-Main alongside Macri and shot to the lead on the initial start. Wise set a rapid pace as the battle behind him heated up, three cars diced for the second position with Macri leading Tyler Courtney, and Justin Peck.

The leader, Wise, approached lapped traffic on the fifth-circuit but kept his cool switching lanes and making the best of a crowded race track.

Courtney charged passed the Macri Concrete No. 39M on the tenth-lap and set his sights on Zeb Wise.

With $6,000 up for grabs, Tyler “Sunshine” Courtney waited and watched making a move just prior to the halfway point – but Wise countered with a move of his own regaining the top spot.

Wise got into the turn four wall two laps later, forfeiting the lead to Courtney.

A close call on lap twenty-three saw two cars make contact. Devon Borden, aboard the Heffner No. 27 machine, shot across the racetrack directly in front of the leaders. Courtney stayed safe, but Wise just barely clipped the car, but was able to continue on.

Courtney dropped the hammer on the restart, with Macri charging into the second spot and Peck moving into the third position.

Macri closed in on Courtney as the final laps ticked away, patiently waiting to make his move.

With the checkered flag in sight Courtney and Macri made contact exiting turn four sending Macri sideways and clinching Courtney’s victory. Macri finished in second, Justin Peck came home in third, Zeb Wise finished in fourth, and Cory Eliason rounding out the top five.

All Star Circuit of Champions 410 Heat races were wont by Zeb Wise, Anthony Macri, and Kyle Reinhardt. Quick Time was set by Cory Eliason with a lap of 11.650, receiving a $150 bonus and wine from Clever Girl Winery. Anthony Macri won the dash earning the right to start on the pole and Tyler Ross was the winner of the B-Main.

Matt Stangle and Justin Grim led the field down to the green flag, swapping the top spot twice in the first lap. A bold three-wide move handed the lead to Jared Umbenhauer, with Grim and Stangle fighting for second.

Umbenhauer dropped into a rhythm that earned him a half-track lead over the rest of the field. Six cars battled for second running multiple grooves before the yellow slowed the field on lap eleven.

On the restart, it was Stangle taking the lead and maintaining control with Brett Kressley and Craig VonDohren following close behind.

Kressley made his move on lap 20, powering past Stangle into the lead.

Lapped traffic bunched the field directly in front of the leaders, with Kressley making contact – but continuing on while the lapped cars spun out, bringing out the yellow, and setting up a one-lap shootout for the win.

Kressley took the lead on the start, the checkered flag, and the $3,500 Thunder on the Hill Racing Series win. Umbenhauer came home in second, Craig VonDohren in third, Matt Stangle in fourth, and Jeff Strunk in fifth.

GT Radiator Repair 358 Modified qualifying heats were won by Justin Grim, Jared Umbenhauer, and Jack Butler each collecting $100 from the Ambler, PA-based business. The last chance consolation event was won by Kevin Hirthler.

The NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series returns on Saturday, October 16 for the Mods at the Madhouse Big-Block/Small-Block Modified Triple 20s and Sportsman event. For further information visit www.thunderonthehillracingseries.com

Increased Payouts for Butch Renninger Memorial Kicks Off Busy 167th Annual Juniata County Fair Week at Port Royal Speedway

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway – PORT ROYAL, Pa. (August 26, 2021) – It's that time of year again! Soon the smell of delicious fair food and the shrieks of excitement from children riding rides will fill the Juniata County air surrounding the Port Royal Speedway.

It's the 167th Annual Juniata County Fair! As tradition has it, racing will again be a prime attraction during the fair. Racing will kick off during opening night of the fair on Saturday, Sept. 4th with the 18th Annual Butch Renninger Memorial Race featuring the ULMS Racing Series Late Models, the Selinsgrove Ford Limited Late Models and the Weikert's Livestock 410 Sprint Cars.

The event honors the legendary Butch Renninger, who sits fourth on the all-time winners list in the Super Late model division with 41 career victories and three track championships to his name. Renninger also served diligently on the board of the speedway for decades and oversaw track preparation and concessions during that time.

The ULMS Late Models will be competing for a cool $6,333, while the Limited Late Models will be competing for an unheard of $5,033. Both winner's shares will be all-time highs for the event and will certainly bring extra excitement to an already prestigious event for the fendered cars.

Specific to the limited late model division, this will be the largest paying race for them in the history of the division and quite possibly the state. Not only will this add prestige and excitment to the event, it shows the continued growth of the Speedway and it's support of all the divisions that compete at it regularly.

Crate motors will not be permitted to participate in the Limited Late Model portion of the event.

The 410 Sprint Cars will race for their regular $4000 to win in preparation for a big week of racing for the division.

To make this event happen, several key sponsors have come on board in support of it and the Renninger family legacy. Packer's Concessions, LLC., Weikert’s Livestock, Mifflin Hill Beverage, Beerhill Gang TV, Mike Cleck Paving & Sealcoating, Inc., RV 4 Wheel Drive & Performance Automotive Inc and an anonymous friend of the Speedway have all chipped in various amounts to push the purses to new heights.

Also up for grabs for the drivers in competition will be several contingency awards presented by several more sponsors. Both the Super Late Models and the Limited Late Models will receive lap sponsor bonuses that will pay $33 per lap courtesy of fans and various sponsors.

In the Super Late Model division, heat race winners will receive $333 courtesy of Tedd Reitz, while fast time in qualifying will receive $133 courtesy of Snyder’s Radiator Shop.. There will also be a $133 hard luck award for the first non-qualifier courtesy of Gullwing Aviation, LLC and Pellman Trade.

For the Limited Late Model division, heat race winners will receive $100 each courtesy of Garman Concrete & Construction, while the Fast-Time Award winner will receive $133 courtesy of the The Gridiron Pub-New Page. Gullwing Aviation will present a hard-luck award of $133 to the first non-qualifier, while Pellman Trade will offer $33 extra to the highest finishing Juniata County driver in the field.

Admission for the event will be $25 for General Admission, $10 for Students and $35 for Pits Admission. Gates will open at 3:00pm EST, while racing is scheduled to kick off at 6:00pm EST.

All of this will lead into Monday, Sept. 6 for the 70th Annual Foss Jewelers, Inc. Labor Day Classic featuring the Weikert's Livestock 410 Sprint Cars, the 4-cylinders and the Path Valley Wingless Sportsman division. Thanks to an anonymous donor, the 410 Sprint Car event will pay $6000 to win instead of the regular $5000 winner's share.

As tradition, the event will serve as our fan appreciation night featuring $5 infield general admission and $12 grandstand general admission. Pit admission will be $30. It will also be United Way night, with half of the 50/50 proceeds benefitting the local United Way chapter. Tedd Reitz will also serve as a sponsor for the event, putting up additional money for the event purse.

Closing out the week will be the 54th Annual Tuscarora 50 sanctioned by the FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions and presented by Ramsey's Car Wash and Garage and Packer's Concessions.

The three-day crown-jewel event will kick off on Thursday, Sept 9 and run until Saturday, Sept. 11. There will be rain date of Sunday Sept. 12 for Saturday's portion only.

Thursday's event will pay $8000 to win for the 410 Sprint cars courtesy of Tedd Reitz and feature the PennsValley MeatMarket PA Sprint Series 305 Sprint Cars. Friday will be the annual 'Night Before 'the 50', which will pay $10,000 to win courtesy of Tedd Reitz and feature the River Valley Builders Super Late Models as well.

Finally, Saturday is the granddaddy of them all, the 54th Annual Tuscarora 50. As tradition, the event will pay $54,000 to win in accordance with the 54th running of the event. There will be a full-paying non qualifiers purse as well.

Saturday's event will feature $200 to win heat races and $450 spread out among the top three in qualifying courtesy of Tedd Reitz. There will be several other contingency prizes throughout the weekend that are yet to be announced as well.

Prices for the weekend are as follows-

Thursday- Sept 9- $25 GA, $10 Students, $35 Pits

Friday- Sept 10- $30 GA, $15 Students, $40 Pits

Saturday- Sept 11- $35 GA, $20 Students, $45 Pits

Twin 20 mains to pay 4K to win each out of purses worth more than 20K each in program that dates to 1961

8/22/21

Mechanicsburg - The All Stars Circuit of Champions Sprint Cars Series heads into Williams Grove Speedway coming up this Friday, August 27 to compete in the 39th annual Jack Gunn Memorial, a Twin 20s program of racing events.

Run in honor of the late, former Williams Grove Speedway announcer and promoter, the big event will be a sprints only program with an exhibition by restored racecars from the Eastern Museum of Motor Racing also on the agenda.

Sponsored by Union Quarries and presented by VP Racing Fuels, the 39th Jack Gunn Memorial twin 20-lap mains will each pay $4,000 to win with total purses for each feature worth over $20,000 each.

Time trials will set the heat starting grids while the winner of the first 20-lap main event will draw for an inversion to start the second feature event.

Fast Tees Screenprinting of Thompsontown will pay $300 to set fast time over the field.

Both 20-lap feature events will carry full points toward the 2021 Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint car Williams Grove Speedway track title.

Event sponsor Union Quarries of Carlisle is one of the top stone, concrete and blacktop producing companies in the region.

Union Quarries has been providing materials to Adams County, York County, Perry County and throughout the area since 1961.

Learn more about the company by visiting www.unionquarries.com.

Twin 20s at Williams Grove date back to 1961 when Johnny Mackison Sr. and Dick Tobias claimed the first pair.

Since then no driver has been more successful in the programs at the track than Fred Rahmer.

Rahmer scored an even six times in twins action during his career including in a sweep of the program in 1995, a feat that only Van May had ever done before in 1983.

Don Kreitz Jr., the current car owner of point leader Lance Dewease, has the second best record in the twin 20s having taken five during his career as a driver.

Dewease has the third best twins record having scored four wins, his most recent coming in the most recent running of the mains in 2019.

All Star Aaron Reutzel took the other twin in 2019.

“Sunshine” Tyler Courtney has established himself as the man to beat on the 2021 All Stars tour and Courtney will be trying to pick up his first ever Williams Grove win in the twin 20s.

Courtney has some seven wins on the season to date and a more than 300-point lead in the standings over Cory Eliason of Visalia, California.

Missouri’s Hunter Schuerenberg currently holds down third spot in All Stars points.

Aside from the aforementioned top three in points, the Jack Gunn Memorial is sure to bring many other touring pilots into Williams Grove including Cory Eliason, Hunter Schuerenberg, Ian Madsen, Kyle Reinhardt, Zeb Wise, Cap Henry, Justin Peck and more.

In the Gunn Memorial itself, Lance Dewease owns three victories over the years and he’s sure to be primed for a fourth aboard the Kreitz No. 69K.

Other local top contenders for a twin 20 win in two weeks should be Danny Dietrich, Freddie Rahmer, Devin Borden, TJ Stutts, Anthony Macri and Lucas Wolfe.

The 39th Gunn Memorial will mark the 42nd appearance by the All Stars at Williams Grove since the series inception in 1970.

To date, local drivers known as the Pennsylvania Posse have claimed 36 of the shows with two shows going to independent driver Kyle Larson and three others going to All Stars driver and champion Aaron Reutzel.

The August 27 twin 20s will be another race in the 2021 Hoosier Diamond Series of races at the track.

Adult general admission is set at $25 with youth ages 13 – 20 admitted for $10. Kids ages 12 and under are always admitted for FREE at Williams Grove Speedway.

Jack Gunn Legacy To Be Honored Friday At Williams Grove Speedway

8/22/21

Mechanicsburg - This Friday’s twin 20s for the All Stars Circuit of Champions Sprints at Williams Grove Speedway will honor late, great, promoter Jack Gunn.

The Jack Gunn Memorial twin 20-lap mains will each pay $4,000 to win with total purses for each feature worth over $20,000 each.

First run in 1983, the Gunn Memorial honors late Williams Grove promoter Jack Gunn, a native of Hancock, Maryland.

Gunn was a Hall of Fame Promoter who heralded the speedway as promoter from 1967 until his untimely death from cancer at the age of 48 in 1980.

He began working at the track during the early 1960s as an announcer and honed his skill on the microphone while eventually relaying his talents into the oval’s captain.

It was during his tenure at the helm of Williams Grove Speedway that Gunn rose to prominence on the local and national scene and he took the facility with him.

During his career at Williams Grove, Gunn also promoted with much success at other area tracks.

Gunn’s mark on both Williams Grove and the region itself was to help raise sprint car racing to not only a weekly division but a premiere weekly headline division at that.

Gunn was feted nationally as 1979 Promoter of the Year.

While at the top of his game, he not only stood at the helm at both Williams Grove and Selinsgrove Speedways, but he was also doing the job at Hagerstown, (Maryland) and Penn National Speedways.

In his day, Jack Gunn was known as the most powerful promoter in the East.

And it is that reputation and skill that Williams Grove Speedway will honor yet again this week with the running of the All Stars Jack Gunn Memorial Twin 20s.

Gates will open at 5:30 pm.

Adult general admission is set at $25 with youth ages 13 – 20 admitted for just $10. Kids ages 12 and under are always admitted for FREE at Williams Grove Speedway.

The win came over Steve Buckwalter and Curt Stroup and was worth $4300. Macri earned the additional $300 as a result of winning form the ninth position.

"I'm speechless. I don't think we've ever gotten two wins in one weekend," said Macri."It's pretty cool. My guys worked their butts off to get this car ready for today and it just finslly all paid off."

The night began with a salute to the military and a free concert with Sgt. Bob presented by Planet Fitness and with 100 total sprint cars in attendance across all three divisions.

Stroup and Pat Cannon led the field to the green flag and it was Stroup jumping out to the early advantage on lap one. Eighth-place starter Logan Wagner was on the move early as he was up two spot to sixth on the opening circuit and challenging for a top-five spot as well.

Third-place starter Buckwalter got by Cannon for the runner-up position on the backstretch on lap three and one lap later Wagner cracked the top five as well.

By lap eight Stroup was in lapped traffic, but held a little more than a 2.0 second advantage over Buckwalter. Wagner continued his march to the front as he he took the third position two laps later and at the same time Macri was making his presence known as he cracked the top-five on the same lap.

Buckwalter cut the deficit in half on lap 11, but two laps later it was Wagner sliding around Buckwalter for the runner-up position and putting Stroup in his vision. Wagner and Stroup crisscrossed lines on lap 14 and it was Stroup leading the lap in a drag race to the line. However, the caution halted Wagner's momentum as Tyler Walton came to a slow on the Speedway.

While everyone was watching to see what Wagner would do on the restart, it was fourth-place running Cannon who brought the fans to their feet as he used a three-wide move to go to second in turn's one and two. Buckwalter was able to regain the spot entering turn three, while Wagner seemed to be struggling with his car as he fell to fifth.

Macri entered the podium for the first time the following lap as he got by Cannon for third and two laps later he got by Buckwalter for the runner-up position in turn's one and two. However, as the cars behind him jockeyed for position it was Stroup who was benefitting as he held more than a 2.0 second advantage with only eight laps remaining.

Within three laps, Macri was in hot pursuit on the high-side of the track as he cut a full second off the advantage. With five to go he was all over Stroup's tail tank and one lap later Macri made the winning move for the lead.

"He was out front and I didn't really know what to do to try and catch him," said Macri. "I tried the bottom and I tried the top and I was able to close on him and get him. I talk to those guys and they've come a long way and are definitely fast."

Stroup tried a pair of slider the next two laps, but Macri was too strong off the top of the Speedway. It appeared Macri was going to go untested for the victory, however their would be one last test as track points leader Logan Wagner slowed to a stop on the backstretch setting up a one lap shootout.

Stroup's best chance was to go to the bottom on the restart, but Macri took the line away in turn's one and two. The move allowed Buckwalter to get around Stroup for the runner-up spot entering turn three, but the race was Macri's as he cruised home to the checkered flag by 1.588 seconds.

Buckwalter, Stroup, Gerrard McIntyre and Cannon rounded out the top five. Mike Wagner, Blane Heimbach, Justin Whittal, Dylan Cisney and Ryan Smith completed the top-ten. 11th-place finisher Jared Esh earned the Valley Supply/Mike Cleck Paving $5000 Hard charger after starting 22nd on the grid, while 15th-place finisher Connor Leoffler earned the $1000 J &S Fabrication Warrior Award via random draw.

"I think we learn something every time we hit the track. I've been trying to get better as a driver and figuring out how to better run the bottom," said Macri. "I'm always searching around for speed and I've had the mentality lately to just get better for these big races and it seems we found something."

410 Sprint Car Feature Finish, 25 Laps: 1. Anthony Macri; 2. Steve Buckwalter; 3. Curt Stroup; 4. Gerard McIntyre; 5. Pat Cannon; 6. Mike Wagner; 7. Blane Heimbach; 8. Justin Whittall; 9. Dylan Cisney; 10. Ryan Smith; 11. Jared Esh; 12. Jason Shultz; 13. A.J. Flick; 14. Kody Lehman; 15. Connor Leoffler; 16. Trenton Sheaffer; 17. Tyler Reeser; 18. Mike Walter II; 19. Drew Ritchey; 20. Logan Wagner; 21. Jeff Halligan; 22. Tyler Bear; 23. Tyler Walton; 24. Dan Shetler.

In the two previous visits to the Port Royal Speedway for the Rapid Tire USAC East Coast Wingless Sprint Cars, Alex Bright had gone a perfect two for two entering Saturday night. Determined to break the streak and break a tie between the two with seven wins this season with the series, Briggs Danner held off Bright to score his first career Port Royal victory and the $1500 that came with it.

"It was a really nice track out there and once I got out to the lead I was kind of taking it easy out there," said Danner. "It was a good race and I think I felt my tire going away there. He showed his nose a few times and I knew it was time to go."

Christian Bruno and Danner led the field to the green flag and it was all Danner form the drop of the green flag. Meanwhile, Bright started eighth and he was already up to fourth on the opening circuit.

One lap later Bright moved into a podium position and the following lap he drove his way into second. However Danner was in cruise control and had already worked up a 2.603 second advantage.

Danner stretched his lead to close to 3.0 seconds before Bright started reeling him in. By lap nine Bright had it down to just over 2.0 seconds and two laps later he cut another half a second and was closing fast. Two laps later Danner was in heavy lapped traffic and Bright had the deficit cut to 1.057 seconds.

With 11 laps to go, the pair was nose-to-tail coming to the start/finish line and Bright threw a slider entering turn one on Danner for the lead. He briefly held the top spot, but Danner cruised back by down the backstretch to lead again with 10 laps remaining.
Bright tried the move again in turn's three and four the following lap, but again Danner had the strength coming out of the turn to re-take the lead. Over the next eight circuits, Bright stayed patient and was reeling Danner back in.

Bright was really fast in turn's one and two, while Danner had the advantage at the other end of the Speedway. Entering turn three to take the white flag, it appeared Bright was setting Danner up for the pass, but the caution flew for a slowing car on the frontstretch to thwart the effort.

Bright's car stumbled on the restart and that allowed Danner to jump out to a hefty advantage as the pair came to the white flag. Bright would try and last ditch effort slider in turn's three and four, but Danner was not to be denied as he cruised under the checkers for the eighth time of the season with the series by an advantage of 1.085 seconds over Bright, Bruno, Tommy Kunsman and Eric Jennings.

Kenny Miller III, Nash Ely, Bruce Buckwalter, Ed Aiken and Mike Thompson rounded out the top ten.

"I knew Alex was going to try something and he kind of got into me a little on the start and that gave me some room to breathe," said Danner. "That really helped me get going and I'm just thankful for the opportunity and to find victory lane."

For Bright, he thought he had the best car, but was struggling on the restart.

"I thought that was fun and I hope the fans enjoyed it, but we gave that away on the restart," said Bright. "We got to get the stumbling part figured out, but ultimately he was fast and so were we and I'd have liked to seen how that played out in green flag action."

360 Non-Wing Sprint Car Feature Finish, 25 Laps: 1. Briggs Danner; 2. Alex Bright; 3. Christian Bruno; 4. Tommy Kunsman; 5. Eric Jennings; 6. Kenny Miller III; 7. Nash Ely; 8. Bruce Buckwalter; 9. Ed Aiken; 10. Mike Thompson; 11. Mark Bitner; 12. Damon Paul; 13. Colin White; 14. Aiden Borden; 15. Rich Carnathan; 16. Tom Savage; 17. Jason Cherry; 18. Troy Fraker; 19. David Swanson; 20. Jermain Godshall; 21. Billy Ney; 22. Jonathan Swanson; 23. Joey Amantea.

Dave Grube overcame multiple restarts on the opening circuit to go from fourth to first and picked up his second Penns Valley Meat Market PA Sprint Series 305 Sprint Car victory of the season at Port Royal Speedway.

However, the win didn't come without controversy as Grube and defending track champion Garrett Bard made contact in turn's three and four while battling for the lead on lap six, which sent Bard spinning and handed Grube the lead.

Grube would go untouched the rest of the way to score the victory over Domenic Melair, Kenny Heffner, Will Brunson and Fred Arnold. Larry Mcvay, Nathan Gramley, Steve Kenawell Jr., Roger Irvine and Austin Reed completed the top-ten. Bard would go on to finish 13th after rejoining the field.

305 Sprint Car Feature Finish, 20 Laps: 1. Dave Grube; 2. Domenic Melair; 3. Kenny Heffner; 4. Will Brunson; 5. Fred Arnold; 6. Larry McVay; 7. Nathan Gramley; 8. Steve Kenawell; 9. Roger Irvine; 10.

Chase Dietz celebrated his second win of the season at Lincoln with the fans surrounding victory lane by high fiving those along the fence as they cheered him on. After the celebration Dietz reflected on his most recent win, “The way the track was it was more of trying to stay a little patient which is what I’ve been struggling with.”

Going into Saturday night, Dietz had two DNFs and a twelfth place finish in his last three features, “The guys put in all the work. I was at the beach this week, so these guys did everything. They stuck around for all the rough nights we have had here lately.”

Starting next week, Central PA will kick off it’s month of money, “Hopefully we pick off a couple more here before the end of the year. Big weekend coming up next week with the All Stars coming in. We’re definitely ready to get them.”

Reflecting on the win in honor of Skelly Dietz shared, “We’re happy to be able to do this for Barry and be here in memory of him. He was a very big part of Lincoln Speedway and obviously the racing community in general.”

Brie Hershey and Trey Hivner shared the front row for the start of the 30-lap feature.

The red flag waved on the first lap for Tim Wagaman who flipped down the front stretch. Matt Campbell’s car also had damage. Campbell utilized time in the work area and rejoined the field for the complete restart.

Hivner went to the bottom of turn 1 to take the lead. Jim Siegel and Chase Dietz battled side by side for second with Dietz holding the spot.

Aaron Bollinger got by Jordan Givler for fourth coming out of turn 2 on lap 4.

Hivner made contact with the wall in turn 4 on lap 5. The misstep allowed Dietz to close in and take the lead on lap 7. Dietz entered lapped traffic after taking the lead.

Devon Borden got by Givler on lap 9 to work his way into the top five. In his first race back at Lincoln since Speedweek, Danny Dietrich was on the move from his twelfth starting spot.

Siegel got by Hivner for second on lap 10. Bollinger looked to follow and got by Hivner for third at the line on lap 11.

Borden raced his way up to fourth on lap 13.

Dietz had a lead of 2.820 seconds at the halfway point over Siegel as Dietrich made his way into the top five.

Borden was closing in on Bollinger for third and Dietrich was reeling in Borden.

Borden got under Bollinger and Dietrich followed sending Bollinger to fifth.

Dietrich and Borden raced wheel to wheel at the line for third with Dietrich having the advantage on lap 21. Borden took the spot from Dietrich on lap 22.

Dietz was in heavy lapped traffic allowing Siegel to close in. With five laps to go Dietz’s advantage was down to 1.758 seconds.

The three car battle for second between Siegel, Borden and Dietrich was cut short when the caution came out on lap 26 for Glenndon Forsythe who fell off the pace on the front stretch.

Dietz led Siegel, Borden, Dietrich, and Bollinger to the cone for the late race restart.

Alan Krimes was looming right outside the top five on the restart after making his way to sixth from his fifteenth starting spot.

Krimes got by Bollinger on the back stretch to get into the top 5 with two laps to go.

Dietz crossed the line .779 seconds ahead of Siegel for the win. Borden finished third and Dietrich was fourth. Krimes earned the hard charger honors with this fifth place finish.

Heat race winners in the 410 sprint division were Chad Trout, Chase Dietz, and Jordan Givler.

Kody Hartlaub Scores First 358 Sprint Win

Saturday’s feature was the 400th for the 358 sprint car division at Lincoln Speedway. The first race for the 358 sprints was held on August 12, 1989, with the win going to Jimmy Sheaffer. Kody Hartlaub added his name to the impressive list of winners that includes Doug Esh, Chris Eash, Steve Siegel, and many more with his Inaugural Barry Skelly Memorial victory.

Kyle Rohrbaugh and Mason Chaney shared the front row for the 20-lap feature and the two raced side by side at the flag stand when the green flag dropped.

Rohrbaugh had the lead coming out of turn 2.

Kody Hartlaub was running third with Wyatt Hinkle in fourth.

Hartlaub caught Chaney and made the pass for second coming out of turn 4 on lap 2. CJ Tracy got by Hinkle for fourth and then the yellow flag flew when Dylan Orwig got turned around in turns 3 and 4.

Rohrbaugh led Hartlaub, Chaney, Tracy, and Hinkle for the restart.

Hartlaub went low into turn 1 to make a run for the lead but Rohrbaugh held onto the top spot. Hinkle got by Tracy on the restart to get back up to fourth.

Hartlaub was using the bottom line around the track as Rohrbaugh ran the top.

Hinkle took third from Chaney on lap 6.

Zane Rudisill used the outside of turn 4 to get by Tracy and entered the top five on lap 9 before the caution came out. Travis Leh was off the pace and came to a stop in turn 4.

The top five for the restart were Rohrbaugh, Hartlaub, Hinkle, Chaney and Rudisill.

Once again Hartlaub opted for the bottom of turn 1 on the restart with Rohrbaugh holding the top spot using the high line. Rudisill got a run coming out of turn 2 to get by Chaney for fourth on lap 12.

Steve Owings caught Chaney and battled to work his way into the top five.

Owings got by Chaney to get into the top five on lap 16 and Tracy followed sending Chaney back to seventh.

Macri Gets Elusive First Williams Grove Sprint Win, Satterlee Bests World Of Outlaws Late Models

8/20/21

Mechanicsburg –After years of trying, Dillsburg’s Anthony Macri finally scored the first 410 sprint car victory of his career at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, worth $5,500.

The 22-year old Macri beat point leader Lance Dewease back to the line for the victory by 1.438 seconds.

In the 40-lap World of Outlaws Late Models main, Rochester Mills’ Gregg Satterlee scored the $10,000 victory, leading the entire distance to pick up his third career checkers at the oval and the fourth of his career with the outlaws late models tour.

Second starter Dylan Norris took the lead at the start of the 25-lap sprint car feature over polesitter Landon Myers.

Macri started seventh in the field and was up to third by lap five.

By the halfway point, Norris had a one second lead as Macri battled with Myers for second while both cars drove up on the leader.

Myers took control of the race with 10 laps to go and Macri came along for the ride.

Macri stayed close to the leader before ducking under Myers for the top spot in the first turn with seven laps to go.

Shortly after crossing the line with 18 laps completed the red flag appeared for a violent series of flips in the first corner that saw Freddie Rahmer vault outside the speedway.

Rahmer had been racing with Devon Borden for sixth when he went to Borden’s outside as the pair set the cars into the turn.

Contact sent Rahmer flying and fortunately Rahmer came walking back up over the outside banking and climbed over the rail to get back inside the speedway but his car was destroyed.

The restart saw 13th starter Lance Dewease up to fourth behind Norris and with five to go, Macri had built a 1.485 second lead over Myers with Dewease up to third.

Dewease drove to second with two laps to go but ran out of time to run down Macri although he did bite into the advantage during the final mile.

“This win means more to me than some of my other wins,” Macri said.

“It’s really cool and means a lot to win here after coming here as a kid and always dreaming of winning here.”

Macri credited his mechanic Jim Shuttlesworth for making he and his team contenders.

“He installed confidence in the team,” Macri said.

“He never really gets down and always keeps pushing and works hard. He gives me a good

racecar and the two of us really click when it comes to the race track and working in the shop.”

Myers, Norris and Doug Hammaker completed the top five.

Sixth through 10th went to Danny Dietrich, Aaron Bollinger, Jared Esh, Borden and Matt Campbell.

Heats went to Myers and Norris.

Gregg Satterlee began the 40-lap World of Outlaws Late Models main in second and took the lead at the start over Max Blair.

The first caution flag of the race unfurled with six laps down finding Blair racing second followed by Chris Madden and Kyle Larson.

Madden and NASCAR point leader Larson disposed of Blair on the restart and then Larson went to work on Madden for the second spot however the pace was again slowed with 10 laps down for debris on the speedway.

With Satterlee comfortably out in front, Larson again battled for second when action restarted but found Madden trying to take his top lane away in the middle of the first and second turns.

So Larson began switching up lines as well and eventually beat Madden to the punch on lap 13 to get second and set his sights on the leader.

After Satterlee saw Larson get close, it seemed he was able to pour on the speed at the front and pull away with the top spot.

At the halfway point, Satterlee enjoyed a half-straightaway advantage over Larson, Madden, Kyle Hardy and Dan Stone.

But then the backmarkers came into play, at times racing three wide directly in front of the leaders with 15 laps to go and under.

This allowed Larson to close in for control and it forced Satterlee to choose wisely as he worked to put cars a lap down.

With heavy traffic in play, Larson appeared ready to take command, getting to Satterlee’s direct outside in the fourth corner on lap 33 although Satterlee did lead the pair back to the stripe.

But then doom struck Larson when his car was reportedly struck by a large clump of clay, throwing his nose sideways in the first turn as he hopped sideways over the cushion.

With a wounded machine, Larson then slowed with four laps to go and withdrew from the event.

Running fourth, Dan Stone stopped on the track with one lap to go, setting up a green-white-checker finish for Satterlee with Madden in second however there was no challenge for the lead during the final mile.

“This group of guys that travel around the country are the best in the business,” Satterlee said of the outlaws late models drivers.

“Then you throw a guy like Kyle Larson in and it’s a pretty tough field.”

“It’s a long 40 laps around here. I tried to keep everyone behind me and hit my marks and not do anything stupid behind the wheel. For the most part, it was pretty smooth rolling and we made it to victory lane.”

Madden finished .754 seconds behind at the finish followed by Kyle Hardy, Rick Eckert and Matt Cosner.

Sixth through 10th went to Brandon Sheppard, Ricky Weiss, Max Blair, Shaun Jones and Tyler Bruening.

Heats went to Madden, Blair and Sheppard with Boom Briggs taking the last chance race.

Fast time was set by Madden with a lap of 19.550 seconds, just over the track record of 19.500.

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY: A Motorsports Tradition for Generations

Selinsgrove Speedway’s grand motorsports tradition began July 20, 1946, when Bill Holland of Philadelphia won the first race. Since that historic day, Holland went on to win the 1949 Indy 500, and many of motorsports’ most famous drivers have turned laps at the iconic half-mile dirt track designed by legendary Hollywood stuntman and race car driver Joie Chitwood. The speedway, celebrating its momentous 75th anniversary in 2021, will continue its legacy of rip-roaring open wheel and stock car racing this season and for future generations!

Abbottstown, PA (August 14, 2021) – Tyler Ross came out on top after a non-stop 30-lap feature on Saturday night. The first thing he shared in victory lane was, “They need to shorten these races up.” It was a long night for Ross and the Lefever team, “Today we worked our butts off. We had this rear end out two times. We had all kinds of problems.” Despite the problems the team faced, Ross earned his third win of the year at Lincoln, “I can’t believe this is the third time this year.”

Kyle Moody took the lead at the start of the race and Ross hunted him down in lapped traffic, “I know I ran Moody down; he was good until we got into lapped traffic there.”

The pass for the lead was not the only excitement on the track as there was passing throughout the field. Ross said in victory lane, “This track was phenomenal tonight.”

Landon Myers drew the pole for the 30-lap Leffler Energy Night feature. Kyle Moody lined up to his outside with Tyler Ross and Chad Trout in row two.

Myers had the advantage when the green flag dropped and pulled a wheelie as he started down the front stretch. Moody took the lead from Myers as they drove out of turn 2 and led lap 1.

Gerard McIntyre got by Chad Trout for fourth as Tyler Ross caught Myers to battle for second.

Myers and Ross raced wheel to wheel on lap 6 at the line for second with Myers holding off the charge from Ross.

Moody entered lapped traffic on lap 7. As Myers caught the tail end of the field Ross had reeled him back in.

Ross got by Myers for second on lap 11. McIntyre was not far behind as he closed in on Myers for third.

As the halfway point of the race was approaching, Ross was closing in on Moody for the lead. The race for first was wheel to wheel at the line on lap 17 with Ross taking the top spot by inches.

Moody raced back to the lead at the line on lap 18. The battle continued as lapped cars loomed ahead. Ross took the lead back on lap 19.

Devon Borden drew the worst pill in the redraw and lined up ninth for the feature. Borden had been charging to the front of the field and made his way into the top five on lap 19.

Ross was pulling away from the rest of the field as a three-car battle for second between Moody, Myers and McIntyre was waging behind him.

McIntyre got by Myers for third on lap 24. Borden was still on the move and was picking off cars as the laps wound down. Borden got by Myers on lap 25 for fourth and passed McIntyre for third on lap 26. It took Borden two laps to reel in Moody for second, taking the spot on lap 28.

Tyler Ross won the non-stop feature by 1.893 seconds over Devon Borden. Kyle Moody held on to finish third and Gerard McIntyre crossed the line fourth. Freddie Rahmer completed the top five.

Heat race winners in the 410 sprint car division were Matt Campbell, Gerard McIntyre and Freddie Rahmer.

Ott shared the front row of the 20-lap feature with pole-sitter Aaron Updegraff. Ott led the field into turn 1 with Updegraff in second holding off a charge from Owen Dimm. Dimm looked to the outside of Updegraff and made the pass for second with Travis McClelland and Logan Carbaugh following right behind.

Dimm looked under Ott for the lead down the back stretch with Ott holding the lead at the line. Dimm, a rookie in the division, continued to battle the veteran, Ott, for the top spot.

McClelland reeled in Dimm and the two battled for second with McClelland taking the spot at the line on lap 3. Dimm stayed with McClelland and the two raced wheel to wheel at the line for second on lap 4. McClelland held the position by inches.

Logan Carbaugh was working on Dimm for third when the caution came out on lap 6 for debris.

Ott led the field for the restart with McClelland and Dimm continuing their fight for second. Carbaugh and Bob Stough joined making it a four-car battle. Carbaugh looked to the outside of Dimm and took third on lap 7. Stough followed sending Dimm back to fifth.

Stough was all over Carbaugh trying to take third. Stough tapped Carbaugh’s bumper and got out of shape, allowing Dimm to reclaim fourth.

Carbaugh caught McClelland and the two raced wheel to wheel at the line on lap 10 for second. McClelland held the spot. Carbaugh continued to get his nose under McClelland in the corners, but McClelland continued to hold the advantage at the line.

Stough was holding off Dimm as he challenged for fourth.

The top five were running nose to tail when the yellow flag waved on lap 17 for Preston Alleman who stopped in turns 1 and 2.

Ott led McClelland, Carbaugh, Stough and Dimm to the cone for the restart with three laps to go. Stephen Wurtzer, who had charged through the field from his twelfth starting spot, challenged Dimm for fifth on the restart. Wurtzer made the pass to get into the top five with one lap to go.

McClelland made one last try for the win, but Ott beat him to the checkered flag by .168 seconds. Carbaugh crossed the line third and Stough was fourth. Wurtzer completed the top five.

Central PA Legends heat races were won by Travis McClelland, Chris Transeau, Stephen Wurtzer and Brent Marquis.

Michael Altobelli Sweeps the Mid Atlantic Modified Shows at Lincoln

Rowe used the outside to take the lead coming off turn 2 with Kable running second. Justin Cullum and Rick Hulson raced side by side behind the leaders for third.

Kable took the lead at the line on lap 2 from Rowe. Cullum took over third and was holding off three cars challenging for the spot behind him.

The first caution came out on lap 3 when Tony Wuest got spun around in turns 1 and 2.

Kable led Rowe, Cullum, Hulson and Mike Altobelli in a Delaware-style restart.

Cullum took second on the restart. The field saw another caution on lap 4 with Jared Spalding, Doug Ostwald and Wuest spun around in turn 3.

The field lined up for another Delaware style restart behind Kable. Cullum, Rowe and Altobelli raced three-wide at the line for second. Altobelli took second with Rowe in third and Cullum in fourth.

Cullum got by Rowe for third. Altobelli used the high line to take the lead coming out of turn 2 on lap 7.

Devon Borden Breaks Through for First Career Port Royal Speedway Triumph; Kyle Lee and Garret Bard Win as Well

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Penn. (August 8, 2021) - Prior to racing activities for the night, kids filled the frontstretch and victory lane as they participated in a Kids Money Scramble presented by Pennian Bank. As it turned out, another kid found his way to victory lane to claim money in victory lane to end the night as well.

18-year-old Devon Borden capitalized on a front row starting spot and an extremely fast race car to claim the $4000 winner’s prize and become the 188th driver in Port Royal Speedway history to claim a victory in the 410 Sprint Car division.

The win capped off a big weekend for the Raymond, Washington native aboard the Mike Heffner No. 27 as he picked up first career 410 victory the night prior at Williams Grove Speedway for a clean sweep.

“This is just absolutely crazy. What a heck of a weekend and I don’t know if things could have gone much better,” said Borden. “They call this place the speed palace because it’s fast and this is why I wanted to come here.”

Pat Cannon and Borden lined up on the front row for the 25-lap A-main event and he blasted to the front on the high-side of the Speedway exiting turn two on the start.

Within five laps Borden had approached lapped traffic and he starting picking them off with ease, building a full straightaway advantage on second-place Cannon.

Meanwhile sixth-place starter Gerard McIntyre Jr. and fourth-place starter Mike Walter II were battling for the third position. Walter gained the spot on lap eight and two laps later he slid by Cannon to move into the runner-up position. However, Borden was on cruise control as he held an advantage of nearly 6.0 seconds at the time.

15th-place starter and track points leader Logan Wagner was also on the move, breaking into the top-ten on lap seven and steadily moving forward. Also, eight-place starter Jeff Halligan was charging forward as he moved into a podium spot on lap 13 and two laps later, he dispatched of Walter to take the runner-up position.

For a brief moment it appeared that Halligan was tracking down Borden, shaving a full second off the advantage as Borden battled in lapped traffic. However, two laps later Borden increased his lead to over seven seconds showing he wouldn’t be denied.

“You really have to run the boards here to compete for wins and that’s what I knew I needed to do,” said Borden. “I wasn’t worried about what was going on behind me and I just stayed hammer down and tried not to mess it up.”

Wagner moved into the third position on the white flag lap, but Borden was in a different area code as he crossed under the checkered flag by an advantage of 9.440 seconds.

Halligan, Wagner, Walter II and Blane Heimbach rounded out the top-five followed by McIntyre Jr., Jared Esh, Zeb Wise, Mike Wagner and Cannon.

“We came here to get some experience on half miles and there is a race later this year worth $54,000 to win and we want to have a shot to win it,” said Borden. “We’re really getting things figured out on this car and man this is fun. I’ve been watching races from this place for years and I always dreamt of winning here and this is almost unbelievable.”

For Halligan, he believed he had a car capable of winning, but he needed a caution to have anything for Borden.

“I felt pretty good and for a second I actually thought I was in the lead as I didn’t see anyone in front of me,” said Halligan. “I think a caution would have changed things up a bit, but this is a new car we just put together and to run second I’m pretty proud of that.”

Logan Wagner earned the $500 Hard Charger Award courtesy of Valley Supply and Mike Cleck Paving, while 20th-place finisher Tanner Brown earned the $1000 J&S Fabrication Warrior Award via random draw.

410 Sprint Car Feature Finish, 25 Laps: 1. Devon Borden; 2. Jeff Halligan; 3. Logan Wagner; 4. Mike Walter II; 5. Blane Heimbach; 6. Gerard McIntyre; 7. Jared Esh; 8. Zeb Wise; 9. Mike Wagner; 10.

Drew Ritchey; 22. Cory Thornton

Kyle Lee took full advantage of a front row starting spot to claim the 25-lap River Valley Builders Super Late Model feature win Saturday night at Port Royal Speedway.

The $3000 triumph was the second of Lee’s career at the Juniata County oval and was exceptionally satisfying as Lee missed several weeks earlier this season after breaking his hand in an accident at the Speedway.

“It’s been a very trying year for us and we really needed this one as a team,” said Lee. “It definitely helps a lot to start up front as clean air means everything at this place.”

Roy Deese and Lee led the field to the green-flag and Lee quickly jumped to the lead on the opening circuit. Third-place starter Andrew Yoder moved into the second spot a few laps later, while fifth-place starter Dylan Stake slid into third as well.

Championship contenders Gary Stuhler, Ross Robinson and Dylan Yoder all hovered around the top-five as well, while opening day winner Trevor Feathers was coming on late. Feathers broke into the top-five with under 10 laps to go and he got by Stuhler for fourth with 7 to go.

However, Lee was in his own space as he built up over a 5.0 second advantage with three laps to go. Feathers would get by Stake for a podium spot on the white flag lap, but Lee was not to be denied. He crossed under the checkered flag by an advantage of 5.257 seconds over Yoder, Feathers, Stake and Stuhler.

Robinson, Jim Yoder, Dylan Yoder, Jeff Rine and Colton Flinner completed the top-ten. Flinner earned the $200 George’s Used Cars Hard Charger Award after starting 20th on the grid.

“We’ve been working so hard at this deal and it just means all that much more when you can park it in victory lane,” said Lee. “We’re moving in the right direction and I think we’re getting pretty good. I’m looking forward to the rest of the season.”

For Yoder, the runner-up finish was a pleasant surprise for the rookie in the super late model division.

“This one means a little more than the success we’ve had in the Limited,” said Yoder. “It;s just nice to be back up on the podium and have something to be proud of. We’re getting to a point where I feel we can be competitive and that’s rewarding.”

Super Late Model Results- 1. Kyle Lee 2. Andrew Yoder 3. Trevor Feathers 4. Dillan Stake 5. Gary Stuhler 6. Ross Robinson 7. Jim Yoder 8. Dylan Yoder 9. Jeff Rine 10. Colton Flinner 11. Roy Deese 12.

Garret Bard held off multiple drivers to pick up his first Penns Valley Meat Market PA Sprint Series 305 Sprint Car victory of the season at Port Royal Speedway Saturday night. The win catapulted Bard to the top of the points standings as he looks to earn his second consecutive track title with the series.

“I knew Kenny was there on the restarts and I had to block him and then I knew I had to take the bottom away as well,” said Bard. “Those guys were all over me and I was just trying to be smart and take their lines away when I could.”

Bard and Tyler Snook started on the front row and it was Bard jumping out to the advantage early. While the results will show Bard led all 20 laps, he had to work incredibly hard to hold onto the lead.

Snook and fourth-place starter Kenny Heffner were all over the tail tank of Bard trying to wrangle the top spot from the series ace. However, neither driver was able to capitalize on the momentum and take over the top spot.

Bard went on to take the checkered flag by a margin of .454 of a second at the line. The win was the seventh of Bard’s career at the Speedway and puts him in sole possession of second all-time on the track win list in the division.

Heffner settled for second followed by Snook, Ken Duke Jr. And Domenic Melair. Justin Mills, Rowdy Heffner, Austin Reed and John Walp completed thew top ten. Kassidy Kreitz finished 12th an earned the Hard Charger Award courtesy of Penns Valley Meat Market after starting 21st.

“I was banging the boards pretty good up top and I was pretty much getting sucked in up there, but I knew I’d be alright,” said Bard. “I just had to hit my marks and do my thing and I felt like the results would take care of themselves. That was a fun one out there.”

305 Sprint Car Feature Finish, 20 Laps: 1. Garret Bard; 2. Kenny Heffner; 3. Tyler Snook; 4. Ken Duke; 5. Domenic Melair; 6. Justin Mills; 7. Rowdy Heffner; 8. Austin Reed; 9. John Walp; 10.

LINCOLN SPEEDWAY

Abbottstown, PA

CORY HAAS BACK IN VICTORY LANE AT LINCOLN; Justin Foster Scores First Career 358 Win; Sam Scicchitano Wires Field for 600 Xcel Modified Win

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Saturday, August 14 (7:30 p.m.) LEFFLER ENGERGY NIGHT: 410 Sprints, Central PA Legends, and Mid-Atlantic Modifieds

Saturday, August 21 (7:30 p.m.) INAUGURAL BARRY SKELLY MEMORIAL: 410 Sprints and 358 Sprints

Saturday, August 28 (7:30 p.m.) ALL-STAR CIRCUIT OF CHAMPIONS KRAMER KLASH ($7,300 to win) plus Central PA Legends

Abbottstown, PA (August 7, 2021) – On Saturday night Cory Haas became the 17th different winner at Lincoln Speedway in 22 races so far in the 2021 season. Haas’ win was his ninth at the track and his first since October 2012.

Haas lined up ninth for the 30-lap feature, “The biggest key tonight, I shoved it under Troy Wagaman in the heat race for a spot early in the heat and that was the key to get to start ninth.”

Billy Dietrich shot out to the lead when the green flag dropped but cautions allowed Haas to make his way to the front of the field, “The cautions worked out real well for me tonight. I was able to get maybe a guy usually on the restart down there on the bottom of 1 and 2.”

Once the leaders entered lapped traffic, Haas was able to close in on Dietrich, “Obviously getting through the lapped cars was key. It slowed Billy’s pace down enough that I got a run. Man, I don’t know for a lap or two there it was insane. I about ran over a lapper going down the front stretch. It’s good racing in lapped traffic at Lincoln. Brings back some memories when I was a little younger, but we can still get it done.”

Since the start of June Haas has yet to finish outside the top 10 at Lincoln. Going into Saturday night he had two seconds, a fourth, a sixth, an eighth and a tenth during that stretch. On Saturday he finally turned the speed into a win, “I feel that the last month we were as good as anybody here, it’s just a matter of me and not making mistakes and things like that. I think we can end the year pretty well here.”

Dalton Dietrich & Billy Dietrich shared the front row for the start of the DCS School of Driving Night feature. Dalton led the field into turn 1 but Billy was right there and the two raced side by side down the back stretch. Billy took the lead with Dalton in second and Tim Glatfelter running third.

Dylan Norris and Scott Fisher were running fourth and fifth as Chase Dietz joined them to battle for position.

Billy had a commanding 2.5 second lead by lap 4 as he approached lapped traffic. Billy’s lead was up to 3.665 seconds by lap 5 when the caution came out. The yellow flag flew for Brie Hershey and Greg Plank who got together in turns 3 and 4.

With his hefty lead erased, Billy led Dalton, Glatfelter, Norris and Fisher to the cone for the restart at a slow place, stacking up the field behind him.

Glatfelter got under Dalton for second and Norris followed taking third. Cory Haas and Dietz also made their way towards the front of the field by getting by Dalton.

Billy entered lapped traffic again on lap 9, this time with a 2.667 second lead.

The caution flag flew again on lap 11 when Matt Campbell came to a stop in turn 2.

This time the top five for the restart were Billy, Glatfelter, Norris, Dietz and Haas.

Haas got by Dietz and went to work on Norris, making the pass coming out of turn 2. Dietz followed but flipped in turn 4 bringing out the red flag on lap 14.

Billy led Glatfelter, Haas, Norris and Aaron Bollinger on the restart.

Haas got under Glatfelter as they raced down the back stretch to try and take second, but Glatfelter held the spot. Haas was getting a great run off of turn 2 and took the second spot on the following lap.

Alan Krimes worked his way into the top five from his 15th starting spot on lap 15 and then got by Norris for fourth on the next lap.

Bollinger drove back into the top five by passing Norris for fifth.

Lapped traffic came into play again on lap 18 for Billy as Haas was closing in on the leader.

Haas used the high side in turns 1 and 2 to take the lead on lap 22.

With the field lined up for the restart at the halfway point of the race, the first two drivers, Emig and Foster were both looking for their first career wins in the division and at Lincoln.

Devon Borden Wins For Heffner At Williams Grove, 18-year old throttles to victory for first oval win since Hodnett in 2018

8/6/21

Mechanicsburg – Young Devon Borden of Raymond, Washington, took the first 410 sprint car victory of what is sure to be many more in his career, on Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway.

The 18-year old hot shoe got the call in early June to pilot the Mike Heffner-owned No. 27 and within two months he made good on the call for the $5,500 payday in the annual Billy Kimmel Memorial.

The victory marked the cars first trip back to the Williams Grove winner’s circle since Greg Hodnett last put it there in June, 2018.

The 20-lap super late model main went to Dover’s Gene Knaub for his first ever super late model win at the track where he owns multiple limited late wins and track titles.

Borden started on the pole of the 25-lap Kimmel Memorial and would lead every lap to the finish while surviving a pair of late race restarts.

Already on lap two Borden had a 1.8 second lead over third starter Chase Dietz and by lap six he began putting cars a lap down with a more than two second advantage.

Point leader Lance Dewease started 11th in the field and was up to fifth by lap five and then for the next several laps he battled with Alan Krimes for the fourth spot before finally taking the spot on the ninth tour.

At the halfway point, Borden had a 2.4 second lead and with 10 laps to go, he was a full straightaway ahead of Dietz, Tyler Ross and Dewease.

The first caution flag unfurled on lap 15 for a spun Bryn Gohn and Dewease took third from Ross on the restart while Borden raced into the first turn comfortably.

Borden’s lead was out to 1.5 seconds over his challengers with three laps to go when the final yellow flag appeared for a stopped car on the backchute.

While Dietz may have had designs on the lead when action resumed by bolting underneath in the first and second turns, Borden rode the cushion to his outside to slingshot back around and pull away onto the backstretch.

Dewease then went to work on Dietz and got second by the finish, ending up 1.694 seconds behind Borden at the checkers.

“This is amazing,” Borden said after pulling into victory lane.

“Just a sigh of relief. These Heffner guys are awesome. I can’t thank them enough for giving me this opportunity. We finally put it in victory lane and I’m thrilled.”

Borden said it was surreal and a dream come true when car owner Mike Heffner called in early June, just as he was graduating high school, asking him to take over the wheel of the No. 27.

“At the beginning of this year, I was nobody. We made a quick trip back here. Don Ott helped us out quite a bit. It allowed me to get on the map and perform good enough to get in this Heffner ride. It’s a dream come true. Man, we just won at Williams Grove!”

“I saw Chase and the famous Lance Dewease,” said Borden about the restart. “I tried to hit my marks and not think about who was behind me and hope for the best.”

Dietz finished third followed by Ross and Freddie Rahmer.

Sixth through 10th went to Aaron Bollinger, Zeb Wise, Alan Krimes, Kyle Moody and Dylan Norris.

Heats went to Borden, Ross and Dietz.

Gene Knaub led all 20 laps of the super late model main over veteran Gary Stuhler.

Stuhler tried to mount a challenge at times before allowing Knaub to slip away on a few occasions.

Early in the race, Mike Lupfer and Dylan Yoder raced side by side for fourth for several laps before Yoder finally secured the spot.

Justin Weaver started third and finished in the spot, behind Stuhler.

Randy Christine Jr. ended up fifth.

Heats went to Mike Lupfer and Danny Snyder.

Brent Marks, Logan Wagner and Gregg Satterlee Write Their Names in the Record Books on Living Legends Dream Night

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Penn. (August 1, 2021) - On a night that saw more than 20 of the legends of the Port Royal Speedway return to the facility for a celebration during the 15th Annual Living Legends Dream Race, three current drivers did their best to leave their mark on the history books themselves.

Brent Marks piloted his No. 19 Sprint Car to victory during the $10,000–to- win River Valley Builders Greg Hodnett Classic Dream Race to start the night and three-time defending track champion Logan Wagner scored his second win of the season during the $5000-to-win second feature sponsored by Krill Recycling. Gregg Satterlee also earned the $3000-to-win late model portion of the Dream Race during a night that saw all three purses top $80,000 combined in one of the largest unsanctioned events on the East Coast.

Courtesy of a redraw, Lance Dewease and Logan Wagner led the field to the green flag for the 30-lap $10,000 to win feature event and it was Dewease getting the early jump to the lead. However, all eyes were on Marks as he went fourth to second on the opening lap.

His momentum was halted though when Jared Esh slowed to a stop on the frontstretch one lap later with a broken steering wheel to bring out the caution.

Marks jumped to the high side on the restart and he pulled even with Dewease down the backstretch. However, Dewease found just enough momentum to pull ahead by a nose to lead the second circuit. The two drivers jockeyed for the top spot the next two laps and Marks finally got by Dewease on lap five to lead by the narrowest of margins.

Dewease continued to try the bottom for the next handful of laps and was letting Marks know he wasn't going away, but Marks used the top side to perfection lap after lap to hold down the top spot.

Lapped traffic played its part on lap nine and Marks was aggressive in putting as many lappers between him and Dewease over the next handful of laps. Dewease used the lapped cars to his advantage and he briefly closed the gap to a few car-lengths again with eight to go. However, Marks thwarted that comeback and again pulled away on the top side of the track.

With 10 laps to go, Marks held close to a 2.0 second advantage over Dewease. However, Dewease had Anthony Macri all over his tail tank for the runner-up spot and was just trying to hold on.

With the two cars duking it out for second and lapped cars making it difficult, Marks pulled away with ease over the remaining circuits. With five laps to go the advantage was close to 3.0 seconds and at the checkered flag, Marks was in his own area code by a whopping 4.967 seconds.

Macri got by Dewease on the white flag lap to take the second place and Dewease rounded out the podium. Logan Wagner and Jeff Halligan completed the top-five.

Danny Dietrich, Mike Wagner, Mike Walter II, Dylan Cisney and AJ Flick rounded out the top-ten. Mike Wagner earned the $1000 J&S Fabrication Warrior Award via a random draw and Cisney got the Valley Supply hard charger going +7 from 16th.

Greg Hodnett Dream Classic, 30 Laps: 1. Brent Marks; 2. Anthony Macri; 3. Lance Dewease; 4. Logan Wagner; 5. Jeff Halligan; 6. Danny Dietrich; 7. Mike Wagner; 8. Mike Walter II; 9. Dylan Cisney; 10.

Marks drew the number nine for the invert of the second $5000 to win feature presented by Krill Recycling LLC and that put Cisney and Walter on the front row for the 25-lap event. Cisney jumped out to the early advantage, but it was Logan Wagner on the move going from sixth to third on the extreme high side of the track on lap one.

Knowing he needed to get moving fast, Wagner threw a slide job on Walter for second entering turn one and nearly spun out, which caused Walter to make contact and sent him tipping over. Wagner was able to do a 360-spin and kept moving to retain the second spot. Walter would walk away, but his night was done.

Wagner went right back to the top of the track on the restart and one lap later he was able to dispatch of Cisney for the lead exiting turn two. Dewease, who started eighth, was on the move early as well and was up to fourth by lap four.

Five laps later Dewease moved into the third spot, but the red flag flew on lap 10 for a flipping Jeff Halligan to halt momentum. Halligan walked away safely form the accident.

Two more cautions flew over the remaining 15 laps, but nobody had anything for Wagner as he took the checkered flag by a margin of 1.973 seconds for his second win of the season. Danny Dietrich, Dewease, Marks and Cisney all battled it out over the final laps for the runner-up position and ultimately it was Dewease grabbing the second finishing spot.

Dietrich, Cisney and 15th-place starter Blane Heimbach rounded out the top-five. Marks, Anthony Macri, AJ Flick, Lucas Wolfe and Tyler Reeser completed the top-ten. Devon Borden finished 11th and earned the Valley Supply Hard Charger after starting 24th. 13th-place finisher Pat Cannon earned the J&S Fabrication $1000 Warrior Award via random draw.

After taking over the lead, Rahmer was not challenged for the top spot, “I don’t how good we were there really there at the end but it worked out.”

With some big races looming ahead on the schedule Rahmer has his eye on finishing out the season strong, “Glad to get the win for everybody. There’s a lot of racing and we got to keep focused.”

Freddie inherited the lead and Dietz did rejoin the field after changing a tire.

The top five for the restart were Freddie, Haas, Kendall, Brandon and Troy Wagaman.

Track officials called for a fuel stop taking the yellow flag to a red to allow teams on the track.

Haas stayed with Freddie on the restart and Mood and Wagaman continued their battle for fifth.

Freddie got to the checkered flag 1.172 seconds ahead of Haas. Kendall crossed the line third and Brandon was fourth. Moody held of Wagaman to complete the top five.

Jeff Rohrbaugh Claims 358 Sprint Victory

Zachary Cool and Ashley Cappetta shared the front row for the $1,500 to win 20-lap feature. Cool led the field into turn 1 but the yellow flag waved before a lap was completed. Cameron Smith was sitting backwards in turn 1 and Wyatt Hinkle came to a stop in turn 2.

The field lined up for a complete restart with Cool leading the field into turn 1 once again. Jeff Rohrbaugh was up to second and had his eyes set on first.

Zane Rudisill and Tyler Esh were battling for fourth when the caution came out again on lap 1 when Tony Hippensteel spun around in turns 1 and 2.

Cool paced the field ahead of Rohrbaugh, Cappetta, Rudisill and Esh for the restart.

Cool had a solid restart but Rohrbaugh stayed within striking distance. Rudisill was all over Cappetta for third and Owings drove by Esh to enter the top five.

Rudisill made the pass on Cappetta for third at the line on lap 3.

Rohrbaugh’s pass for the lead came coming off turn 4 on lap 4. Cool got a nose back under Rohrbaugh in turns 3 and 4 but could not reclaim the top spot.

Matt Campbell Drives Flawless Event To Turn Back Dietrich And Dewease At Williams Grove

Derek Locke sweeps two 358 sprint mains, runs score to six wins on season

7/30/21

Mechanicsburg –Matt Campbell drove a flawless and smart race to pick up the $5,000 sprint car feature at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night at the wheel of the Jerry Parrish-owned No. 21

The Fawn Grove driver came out on top in a hotly contested event from start to finish to notch his second career speedway victory.

In the 358 sprint ranks, Carlisle’s Derek Locke continued his remarkable domination of the division by claiming both features contested on the night.

His pair of victories marked his fifth and sixth of the season at the track where he has locked every other driver out of the winner’s circle.

The start of the 410 sprint car feature saw drama from the drop of the green when second starter Lance Dewease dropped to fourth while polesitter Campbell, third starter Danny Dietrich and fourth starter Anthony Macri went three-wide through the second corner for the lead.

Campbell came out on top while Dietrich and Macri settled in behind.

Dewease took a swipe at Macri for third on the sixth tour only to see Macri reclaim the spot and the leaders then entered the rear of the field on the eighth lap.

Dietrich then mounted a charge on Campbell that saw him drive low into the lead in both the first and third turns only to see Campbell perform flawlessly on the cushion to rocket back into control with huge runs out of the corners.

After Dietrich regrouped from his two failed attempts and Dewease took third from Macri on lap 11, Dietrich came back for more.

The Gettysburg driver blasted across the bottom of the first and second turns on the 13th loop only to again see a stout, solid running Campbell make up huge ground and vault back into the top spot as the pair shot out of turn two.

Dietrich then soon began feeling pressure from Dewease for the second spot before Dewease scored the spot with seven laps to go.

This set up a battle for the win with Dewease down low and Campbell up top but just as Dewease started taking jabs for command, Campbell took his low lane away and began turning back the advances.

The first caution flag of the race unfurled with five laps to go for a stopped Devon Borden and Campbell out paced Dewease on the restart to beat him into the first turn, again using his line on the bottom.

With Dewease in hot pursuit, a final yellow flag bunched the field with three laps to go and again Campbell protected the bottom to pull away onto the backstretch.

Dewease was forced to stalk but never pounce as he chased the leader around the inside all the way to the finish, ending up .512 seconds behind at the finish.

“That was fun, but it wasn’t easy,” Campbell said.

“I checked out the top before the race and I thought that was going to be where I needed to run. I guess I made the right call. It was fast at the beginning.”

The winner first talked about racing so close with Danny Dietrich,

“He raced me clean,” Campbell said about Dietrich

“I seen what he was trying to do. If I jumped the cushion, he had me cleared. I just kept thinking ‘keep it smooth, keep it smooth.’ We got to racing the lapped cars and that broke it up a little and gave me some space,” he said.

For Dewease’s part, Campbell said, “I got passed a lapped car and he showed his nose to me again and I knew it was time to move down.”

“I just tried to run clean laps, run around the bottom and not make any mistakes and here we are,” Campbell said.

Dietrich was third followed by Freddie Rahmer and TJ Stutts.

Sixth through 10th went to Lucas Wolfe, Chase Dietz, Anthony Macri, Mark Smith and Aaron Bollinger.

Heats went to Campbell, Dewease and Dietrich with Chris Arnold taking the consolation race.

Locke drove from the 10th starting spot to get the lead in the first 358 sprint main of the night that was a make up event that originally fell victim to rain on July 16.

In the extra distance Summer Series event, it took Locke until lap 18 to get the lead from Steve Owings.

Owings had inherited control on lap seven when leader Brett Wanner dropped off of the pace.

Owings rode home second followed by Rich Eichelberger, Cody Fletcher and Travis Scott.

Locke dominated the second and final 358 main of the night after starting on the pole and leading all 25 laps while lapping up to seventh position in the field.

Chris Frank, Matt Findley, Justin Foster and John Stehman completed the top five finishers.

Heats went to Locke and Eichelberger.

USAC SILVER CROWN CHAMP CAR SERIES RETURNS TO SELINSGROVE
SUNDAY, AUGUST 8, IN SECOND ANNUAL BILL HOLLAND CLASSIC;
EAST COAST WINGLESS 360 SPRINT CARS TO ROUND OUT DOUBLEHEADER

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Selinsgrove Speedway and the Indianapolis-based United States Auto Club (USAC) will present the Second Annual Bill Holland Classic for the USAC Silver Crown Champ Car Series at 7 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 8!

Joining the Silver Crown cars will be the East Coast wingless 360 sprint cars for a spectacular wingless sprint car doubleheader. Track gates will open at 4 p.m.

In what will be only their second-ever appearance at the famed Snyder County oval, the Silver Crown Champ cars will be featured in a 75-lap race that will not only honor the memory of the late Hall-of-Fame driver Bill Holland but also commemorate the speedway’s historic 75th anniversary season.

Holland, of Philadelphia, won the first race at Selinsgrove Speedway on July 20, 1946, and went on to win the 1949 Indianapolis 500. Although Holland never won a race with USAC, his career was legendary in AAA competition, the predecessor to the formation of USAC in 1955. He died in 1984 from complications of Alzheimer's disease and was inducted posthumously into the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame in 2005.

The elite Silver Crown Champ Car Series drivers will race for $8,075 to win and the beautiful Holland Classic trophy out of the $33,000 purse.

In last year’s inaugural race, Shane “The Throttle” Cottle of Kansas, Ill., made a thrilling last-lap pass for the lead and win after having to restart the race at the rear of the field on lap 30 due to a flat tire! Cottle took the prestigious win over CJ Leary of Greenfield, Ind.

The East Coast wingless 360 sprint cars will make their third and final appearance of the season in a 20-lap main event.

Brady Bacon of Broken Arrow, Okla., won the track’s first-ever wingless 360 sprint car race in last year’s show over Steve Drevicki of Reading.

Wingless 360 sprint car races this year have been won by Alex Bright of Collegeville and Briggs Danner of Allentown.
Earlier this season on June 17, the USAC National Sprint Car Series made its first appearance at Selinsgrove Speedway in 50 years with Justin Grant of Ione, Calif., taking the 30-lap wingless 410 sprint car win.

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY: A Motorsports Tradition for Generations

Selinsgrove Speedway’s grand motorsports tradition began July 20, 1946, when Bill Holland of Philadelphia won the first race. Since that historic day, Holland went on to win the 1949 Indy 500, and many of motorsports’ most famous drivers have turned laps at the iconic half-mile dirt track designed by legendary Hollywood stuntman and race car driver Joie Chitwood. The speedway, celebrating its momentous 75th anniversary in 2021, will continue its legacy of rip-roaring open wheel and stock car racing this season and for future generations!

The entire purse on the line for the event will be nearly $35,000 and the annual race serves as one of the largest paying non-sanctioned events on the east coast.

The first 30-lap event will utilize the Pennsylvania Speedweek format and will serve as a replacement for the cancelled Greg Hodnett Classic from earlier this month. Heat races will pay $227 to win courtesy of RV 4 Wheel Drive & Performance Automotive Inc and quick time in time trials will receive $300 courtesy of Packer's Concessions, LLC.

As a thank you to the fans and drivers who supported the initial event that was rained out, the track will also hold a second 25-lap feature that will pay $5000 to win courtesy of Krill Recycling, LLC. The winner of the first event will pull an invert pill for the second feature to set the lineup. The entire second feature purse will be $21,000.

Logan Wagner enters the weekend as the track points leader with a commanding 270-point advantage over Dylan Cisney. Mike Wagner (-290), Jeff Halligan (-325) and Anthony Macri (-580) make up the rest of the top-five.
Lastly, the River Valley Builders Super Late Models will be on the card, vying for $3000 to win. Heat race winners for the late models will pay $250 to win courtesy of Ted Reitz. The late models will utilize group time trials during warm-ups to help set the lineups for their heat races.

Dylan Yoder enters the weekend with a narrow 25-point advantage over Gary Stuhler in the track standings. Third is Ross Robinson (-35), followed by Colton Flinner (-45) and Jeff Rine (-140).

Traditionally the race honors one or two “Living Legends” from the past of the speedway, however this year will feature a large gathering saluting all the living past champions from both the sprint car and super late model divisions. Nearly 30 drivers are scheduled to return to the track for a large group autograph session occurring prior to the races in the building behind the main grandstands from 4:30-5:30. George Hobaugh Motorsports will also be set up with his car behind the main grandstands representing Krill Recycling signing autographs during this time frame.

The first ever Dream Race was held in 2007, where Sean Michael triumphed in a very popular and emotional win driving for the late Jim Nace in his #6 Sprint Car. Since then, Greg Hodnett (2), Cody Darrah, Chad Layton, Blane Heimbach, Ryan Taylor, Brent Marks, Rick Lafferty, Lance Dewease (2), AJ Flick and most recently Anthony Macri have all won the prize event.

Pricing for the event will be GA- $30, Students- $15, Pits-$40.

DIETZ DOMINATES FOR FIRST SELINSGROVE SPRINT CAR WIN; FATHER-SON YODERS FINISH 1-2 IN CLOSE SUPER LATE MODEL RACE; MITCH EARNS THIRD CAREER ROADRUNNER 20

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – York’s Chase Dietz turned in a dominating performance for his first career 410 sprint car win at Selinsgrove Speedway in Saturday night’s 25-lap main event on Jeff’s Auto Body Night.

Dietz became the third different winner in four Lelands.com 410 sprint cars races at the track this season at the wheel of the Trone Outdoor No. 39. The win was worth $4,000.

Jim Yoder of Selinsgrove edged out his son Dylan Yoder of Middleburg by just .14 of a second for his 14th career super late model win at the track in the 25-lap main event. The $4,000 win was J. Yoder’s first super late model win at Selinsgrove since 2016.

Brad Mitch of McClure powered to his first win of the season in the annual A&A Auto Stores Roadrunner 20. It was the third time Mitch won the division’s championship race.

Selinsgrove Speedway saluted past and present military members as well as first responders Saturday night. A special pre-race presentation was performed by Re-Creation in Victory Lane.

Selinsgrove Speedway returns to racing action at 7 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 8, with the 2nd Annual USAC Silver Crown Champ Car Bill Holland Classic plus the USAC East Coast wingless 360 sprint car series. The 75-lap Holland Classic will pay $8,075 to win to commemorate the track’s 75th anniversary.

On the initial start of the sprint car feature, second-place starter Chase Dietz powered into the lead, only to have the caution unfurl when fourth-place starter Michael Walter’s car lost power on the backstretch. Logan Wagner’s car developed a flat tire from contact and he was able to rejoin the race for the subsequent restart.

Dietz again put his car into the early lead and blistered the fast half-mile speedway ahead of polesitter Bradley Howard. By lap five, Dietz had a commanding lead over Howard, sixth-place starter Mark Smith, third-place starter Pat Cannon, and seventh-place starter Blane Heimbach.

At the halfway point, Dietz was navigating his way through slower traffic as Howard attempted to keep him in his sights. Eighth-place starter Ryan Taylor started showing some speed with a move into the top five.

On the 16th circuit, Smith powered into second and started to reel in Dietz. The field was regrouped on lap 21 when Steve Buckwalter crashed in turns three and four. With four laps remaining, Dietz handily pulled away from the rest of the field and posted a convincing 4.5-second margin of victory over Smith. Heimbach, Cannon, and Taylor completed the top five.

Polesitter Hayes Mattern stormed into the lead at the start of the super late model main event with second-place starter Jim Yoder in pursuit. A multi-car incident in turn three regrouped the field for a complete restart.

Mattern led the early laps of the race in front of J. Yoder, sixth-place starter Dylan Yoder, and third-place starter Andrew Yoder. The Yoder family dueled for positions for several laps behind Mattern.

The race was slowed again on lap seven when Randy Christine’s car rolled to a stop on the frontstretch. When the green flag waved again, J. Yoder pressured Mattern for the front spot and made the winning pass using the outside lane on the frontstretch.

At the halfway mark, J. Yoder was leading D. Yoder, Mattern, fifth-place starter Dan Stone, and A. Yoder. A lap later ninth-place starter Rick Eckert powered into the top five. With five laps to go, D. Yoder closed in on J. Yoder along the bottom of the race track.

On the final lap, D. Yoder made a last-ditch effort to steal the lead and win coming off turn four but fell just .14 of a second short at the checkered flag. J. Yoder was victorious by the slimmest of margins over D. Yoder, Stone, Eckert and A. Yoder.

Polesitter Nate Romig took the early lead in the Roadrunner 20. Romig was chased by second-place starter Corey Kepner for the first lap until fourth-place starter and defending race winner Jake Jones took over the spot.

Sixth-place starter Brad Mitch raced into second on lap three and took the lead from Romig with an outside pass on the backstretch. Halfway through the race, Mitch had a solid lead as Romig kept him in his sights. Jones, who had to restart at the rear of the field earlier due to an incident, powered back into the top five.

With five laps remaining, the top four drivers broke away from the pack with Mitch leading Romig, eighth-place starter Adam Campbell, and Jones.

At the finish, Mitch was victorious over Romig, Campbell, 10th-place starter Smith Cope, and ninth-place starter Terry Kramer.

Brent Marks Passes Schatz, Turns Back Haudenschild Twice To Win Williams Grove Summer Nationals

7/24/21

Mechanicsburg –You might call Brent Marks an independent driver this season or you might even call him a member of the Pennylvania Posse. But for certain you can call him $20,000 richer after claiming the Champion Racing Oil Summer Nationals for World of Outlaws Sprint Cars at Williams Grove Speedway on Saturday night.

Marks trounced the competition for the 20K payday after starting fourth in the field but his win was far from easy to get.

First he had to overtake Donny Schatz for the lead. And then he had to beat back Friday night winner Sheldon Haudenschild repeatedly after watching him get by for control.

Schatz blasted from the second spot out to a large lead when the green flag fell in the 30-lap main, leaving the field in his dust as he drove away.

And by lap six when he hit lapped traffic, he had a full straightaway over Marks who had throttled into second on the opening lap.

By lap eight, traffic was holding up Schatz, allowing pursuers Marks, Haudenschild and Carson Macedo to close right in.

On lap nine with traffic in play Marks nearly gave the entire race away when a mix up between he, Haudenschild and Macedo saw him drop from second to fourth in the turns only to see him dramatically recover and blast back around both drivers into second on the same circuit.

As Schatz struggled to put cars a lap down, Marks was dogged in his pursuit for control before finally getting by on lap 21 as the backmarker of Freddie Rahmer came into play just ahead.

With Marks the new leader, the storm of Haudenschild and Macedo bore down on a faltering Schatz and Marks when Haudenschild took a shot for the lead in the first corner.

Haudenschild’s blast underneath Marks saw him slide up the track into Rahmer, who was just in front of Marks on the cushion and Haudenschild ended up putting a right rear into Rahmer’s car as it bucked sideways and spit fire from the engine compartment.

The contact forced Haudenschild to turn partially sideways as well and Marks was able to bolt back around, again as the leader only to see the pace slowed for a stopped Rahmer.

The restart saw Haudenschild pull a masterful flyer for the lead as the pair shot into the first turn but Marks equally skillfully turned the car down off of the cushion and drove back by and into command, using the inside lane off of the second corner.

The next time around, Haudenschild did exactly the same thing and so did Marks, who again regained the top spot by allowing Haudenschild to drift up in front before turning his car back underneath to get back out in front.

This time however Marks was able to put enough daylight between himself and Haudenschild to prevent a third attempt at the slider before pulling away to the victory.

It was the Myerstown driver’s 11th career oval win after also claiming the Williams Grove National Open fall classic in 2019.

“It was pretty intense,” Marks said of his battles with Schatz and Haudenschild.

“There were a lot of close calls there. It was a lot of fun. It was fun racing Sheldon and Donny, a lot of fun for sure.”

Haudenschild ended up .903 seconds behind at the finish.

“He did a great job tonight,” Haudenschild said of Marks.

“We have nothin’ to hang our heads about.”

Schatz rode home third, saying, “Every lap I kept struggling and struggling to get straight.”

Macedo and Lance Dewease completed the top five.

Sixth through 10th went to Anthony Macri, James McFadden, David Gravel, Aaron Reutzel and Lucas Wolfe.

Heats went to Haudenschild, Marks, Macri and Macedo with Logan Schuchart scoring the B Main.

Haudenschild earned the pole for the feature by winning the dash and he set fast time over the field early in the night with a lap of 17.262 seconds.

Sheldon Haudenschild Scores Round One Of Williams Grove Summer Nationals Friday, Ohio Driver Gets First Career Oval Win

7/23/21

Mechanicsburg –Sheldon Haudenschild picked up night number one of the Champion Racing Oil Summer Nationals for World of Outlaws Sprint Cars at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night.

The Wooster, Ohio, driver pocketed $10,000 for the first victory of his career at the oval where his father Jac also owns two wins.

Haudenschild raced to the pole position by winning the dash before setting out on his victorious journey.

He also set fast time in time trials over the field with a fast lap of 17.104 seconds.

Only one lap of the 25-lap main event was scored before the first caution flag of the race unfurled for a stopped Wayne Johnson in the second corner.

Haudenschild had James McFadden, David Gravel, Donny Schatz and second starter Anthony Macri trailing for the restart.

Macri had fallen swiftly backward on the initial start.

With Brent Marks now up to fifth, the yellow flag turned to red on lap six thanks to a third turn fracas as started by Aaron Reutzel.

Reutzel got out of shape on the fourth turn cushion and turned sideways only to first be clipped by Macri with Macri then getting clouted by TJ Stutts.

Stutts’ machine turned over, forcing the red.

Haudneschild blasted away when action resumed leaving the top five to fight among themselves.

Schatz began pressuring Gravel for second with 11 away before taking the spot on lap 13.

With 10 laps to go, Haudenschild had a half straightaway lead over McFadden as he raced through traffic.

And as Haudenschild set the pace during the late stages, all eyes turned to 17th starter Lance Dewease who was mowing down the front-runners as he circled the inside of the speedway.

With seven laps to go, Dewease was up to fifth before taking Gravel for fourth with 19 complete.

Schatz was next up on Dewease’s hit list and the Fayetteville driver went to work on the North Dakota driver who tried to take his lane away in the turns.

However Schatz couldn’t hold his car down around the oval and Dewease got by for third with two laps to go before quickly running down McFadden for second on the final lap.

Haudenschild ended up claiming the race by a shrinking 2.034-second advantage.

“This is the best I’ve ever felt at this place,” Haudenschild said.

“It feels great winnin’ on these half miles,” he said in reference to taking his first career wins this year at Knoxville Raceway in Iowa and Eldora Speedway in Ohio and now at Williams Grove.

Dewease commented on his masterful run to the front.

“From the ninth row to second at the finish, we’ll take it,” he said.

“We were really good.”

McFadden rode home third followed by Schatz and Marks.

Sixth through 10th went to Gravel, Carson Macedo, Brad Sweet, Logan Schuchart and Danny Dietrich.

Heats went to Schatz, Chad Trout, Stutts and Macri with Wayne Johnson scoring the B Main.

Haudenschild won the dash and set quick time.

The Summer Nationals conclude at Williams Grove on Saturday night with a 30-lap, $20,000 to win main event.

DANNY DIETRICH & JEFF RINE WIN FEATURE RACES ON
SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY’S HISTORIC 75th ANNIVERSARY!

SELINSGROVE, Pa. -- On the anniversary date of Selinsgrove Speedway’s opening in 1946, a huge crowd and stellar field of 410 sprint car and super late model drivers made a showing Tuesday night for the Snyder County oval’s historic 75th Anniversary Race.

Gettysburg’s Danny Dietrich dominated the evening in the 410 sprint cars by winning his heat race and leading flag-to-flag in the 25-lap main event for the $5,075 victory. The win was the fifth of Dietrich’s career at the track at the wheel of the Kauffman Racing/Weikert’s Livestock No. 48.

Thirteen-time track champion Jeff Rine of Danville made the winning pass on lap 23 of the 25-lap super late model feature for his 113th career victory also worth $5,075 in the Jeff’s Auto Body No. 2J. It was Rine’s first win of the season at Selinsgrove, and he became the division’s fifth different winner in as many races.

Selinsgrove Speedway is back in action at 7:30 p.m. this Saturday, July 24, with the Jeff’s Auto Body Summer Championship/Armed Forces Appreciation Night featuring the 410 sprint cars, super late models, and roadrunners. Track gates will open at 5 p.m.

Dietrich drew the pole position for the start of the sprint car feature and beat outside front row starter TJ Stutts into the first turn for the early lead. The caution flag unfurled on the first lap when Dylan Norris stopped on the backstretch.

When the race resumed Dietrich was pressured by Stutts as fourth-place starter Blane Heimbach advanced to third to join the battle at the front of the pack. On several occasions early in the race Stutts challenged Dietrich for the front spot to no avail.

On lap 11, Heimbach passed Stutts for second in turn one and set his sights on Dietrich. At the halfway point, Dietrich led Heimbach, Stutts, third-place starter Steve Buckwalter, and eighth-place starter Freddie Rahmer.

Late in the race, Rahmer showed some speed and powered into third on lap 21. For several laps Heimbach was closing in on Dietrich but ultimately fell 3.12 seconds short at the finish. Dietrich took the win over Heimbach, Rahmer, Stutts, and Buckwalter.

In the super late model feature, polesitter Jim Bernheisel edged out front row starter Gene Knaub for the lead entering turn one. With Bernheisel setting the pace, Knaub and third-place starter Dan Stone dueled for the runner up position.

The race’s first caution flag unfurled on lap six for Jason Schmidt’s disabled race car in turn four. When the green flag waved again, Stone got by Knaub for second. A lap later, a fierce battle unfolded for the third position between Knaub, fifth-place starter Jeff Rine, and seventh-place starter Dylan Yoder.

On the 10th circuit, misfortune struck Stone as his car rolled to a stop in turn two. At the halfway point, Rine was tormenting Knaub for the second spot while Bernheisel led the way. Rine took over the runner up position on lap 18 as eighth-place starter Rick Eckert entered the top five.

In the final laps, Rine reeled in Bernheisel and made the winning pass on lap 23 using the highline through turns three and four. Rine took the checkered flag by one second over Bernheisel, Knaub, Eckert, and D. Yoder.

Williams Grove Summer Nationals Celebrates 20th Running This Weekend

7/18/21

Mechanicsburg – The Champion Racing Oil Summer Nationals at Williams Grove Speedway, coming up this Friday and Saturday, July 23 and 24, will celebrate its 20th running when the gates open up later this week.

The first edition of the current Summer Nationals was a three-day event back in 2002 with a pair of preliminary mains taken by Danny Lasoski and Joey Saldana while local driver Greg Hodentt upended the World of Outlaws for the big score on Saturday driving for the Apple Motorsports stables.

At the time, the three-day World of Outlaws show at Williams Grove was billed as the first of its kind since only one other previous three-day stand at the track in history, also billed as a Summer Nationals, in August 1984 when Sammy Swindell, Brad Doty and Steve Kinser took wins.

Current World of Outlaws kingpin Donny Schatz took two of three at the track in 2003 with Don Kreitz Jr. taking a preliminary night.

The 2004 version saw Lance Deweae and Lasoski split a pair of mains.

Another three-day format in 2005 saw Jason Johnson score a popular victory for local owners Jim and Sandy Kline while Paul McMahan scored another prelim with track powerhouse Fred Rahmer taking a raucous victory in the Saturday finale.

In 2006 outlaws invaders Terry McCarl, Craig Dollansky and Dary Pittman swept the three-day affair.

Donny Schatz bookended the three-day event with wins in 2007 while local Brian Leppo of Spring Grove was sandwiched in the middle with a win aboard the Swope No. 71 machine.

Becoming a two-day event in 2008, outlaws Donny Schatz and Daryn Pittman swept the shows but the following year belonged to local drivers Greg Hodnett in the Kline No. 22 and Cody Darrah with Darrah taking the win in a make-up feature held during National Open weekend in October.

The 2010 version was all Pennsylvania Posse as Lance Dewease took night one aboard the Don Owens No. 30C and Hodnett returning for another win for the Kline team.

Hodnett struck again in 2011, this time in the Trone Special No. 39, along with outlaw driver Jason Meyers.

Just one show was completed in 2012 with Darrah back for another win, this time aboard an outlaws mount owned by Kasey Kahne.

Again, one show was completed in 2013 with Schatz again a victor but the pendulum swung the other way again in 2014 when locals Hodnett and Dewease swept the two-day weekend show with Hodnett now driving for Michael Heffner and Dewease aboard the Conduit Connections No. 14.

The locals made it back-to-back sweeps of the event in 2015 when Danny Dietrich and Stevie Smith trounced the outlaws.

Pittman was back for a win in 2016 with Dewease, now aboard the Kreitz No. 69K, taking the Saturday finale.

Local driver Brock Zearfoss piloted the Long No. 58 to the win on night one in 2017 while Greg Hodnett ended up scoring the second feature aboard the Heffner mount albeit as a make up main in late September.

Only the first night was completed in 2018 with Dewease returning for a victory, still in the 69K.

The 2019 Summer Nationals saw Tim Shaffer pilot the Rudzik No. 49 to the opening night win while Schatz got back to Summer Nationals victory for the first time since 2013.

Shane Stewart and David Gravel are the defending winners of the two races.

Stewart fended off the challenges of Anthony Macri to score the Friday night main while Gravel dominated on Saturday to lead flag to flag in the Jason Johnson No. 41.

Adult general admission for July 23 is set at $30 with Saturday’s race priced at $35. Youth ages 13 – 20 are priced at $15 each night. Kids ages 12 and under are always admitted for FREE at Williams Grove Speedway.

Wlliams Grove World Of Outlaws Champion Racing Oil Summer Nationals Are July 23 & 24

Friday and Saturday events offer 10K and 20K to win

7/18/21

Mechanicsburg – The Champion Racing Oil World of Outlaws Sprint Cars Summer Nationals will take place this week at Williams Grove Speedway, slated for Friday and Saturday, July 23 and 24 at 7:30 pm.

The July Williams Grove outlaws invasion will be the second of three match-ups between the travelers and the local stars during the 2021 season.

Both nights of this year’s Summer Nationals shows will include full programs of time trials, heats and feature events.

The July 23 outlaws-posse match will feature a 25-lap main paying $10,000 to win while the July 24 Saturday finale Champion Racing Oil Summer Nationals feature will offer $20,000 to the winner.

Adult general admission for July 23 is set at $30 with Saturday’s race priced at $35. Youth ages 13 – 20 are priced at $15 each night. Kids ages 12 and under are always admitted for FREE at Williams Grove Speedway.

It would seem that Californian Brad Sweet is the leader of the outlaws tour as it comes back to Williams Grove on Friday however he has yet to ever notch a win at the historic venue in his career.

Sweet leads the current outlaws points with 13 wins over Carson Macedo and David Gravel, both of whom have been outscored two to one by Sweet.

But while Sweet may struggle at Williams Grove, Gravel does quite the opposite.

In fact, Gravel is one of the defending winners of the Champion Racing Oil Summer Nationals having taken the $20,000 finale last July.

In total, Gravel owns eight career victories at the track.

Carson Macedo owns a pair of Williams Grove wins on his career, both coming within the last 16 months and recently picked up the annual Brad Doty Classic at Attica, Ohio.

Aaron Reutzel, currently seventh in the outlaws points, also must be considered a contender as he moves into the Summer Nationals.

Reutzel, an infrequent visitor to the oval, has quickly picked up four wins within the last two years including back in May during the most recent outlaws stand when he and Macedo split weekend action.

The Williams Grove point leader, Lance Dewease will be the torch carrier for the PA Posse against the outlaws this weekend.

Up until July 16, Dewease was the only driver to repeat at Williams Grove this season and he is fresh off of a pair of podium finishes against the outlaws in May.

Freddie Rahmer, who became the second driver of the year to repeat at Williams Grove on Friday night, could be a factor as well.

Regulars Danny Dietrich and Anthony Macri also should prove to be in the mix this weekend along with local independent driver Brent Marks

Freddie Rahmer Wins Week Before The Outlaws, First Since Opening Day At Williams Grove

358 sprints postponed due to rain

7/16/21

Mechanicsburg –Freddie Rahmer scored the Diamond Series World of Outlaws Tune Up event for sprint cars at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, taking $6,000 for the victory that was his second of the season at the oval but first since opening day in March.

The 358 sprint car feature fell victim to rain and will be made up on Friday night, July 30, when the 358 sprints next appear at the track.

Dylan Cisney of Port Royal appeared headed to a perfect night in 410 sprint car action, perhaps running the best laps of his career at the oval throughout the night from the start after earning his second consecutive fast time award in time trials with a lap of 16.936 seconds.

Cisney went on to win his heat race and then draw the pole for the dash before finishing where he started in the race.

This set him on the pole for the 25-lap main event and when the green flag fell he beat second-starter Rahmer up off of the bottom to take control.

However the first start was red flagged for a two-car flip in the third turn with a total of four cars involved including Dylan Norris, Dwight Leppo, Doug Hammaker and Robbie Kendall.

So, when action resumed Cisney went to work and did the same thing again and pulled away from Rahmer with the lead while running the cushion.

But the cushion bit him on the fourth lap when his car bounced into the corner and bucked to a stop high in the second corner after clouting the outside rail.

The disappointing end to Cisney’s race and 1.149 second lead handed control to defending track champion Rahmer.

Lucas wolfe followed for the restart backed up by TJ Stutts and Lance Dewease.

Dewease got under Stutts for third on lap five but by that time Rahmer had already built a sizable lead over Wolfe.

By lap 10 when Rahmer entered the backmarkers he held a 3.230 second advantage.

As the race wore on, well into the second half, Rahmer began struggling in traffic and hanging in the corners while entering on the cushion, allowing both Wolfe and Dewease to inch into sight.

Then a reprieve for the leader came with six laps to go when Devon Borden stopped on the frontchute.

After starting tenth, Borden was up to sixth before stopping.

Rahmer blasted away on the restart to pick up the win by 2.567 seconds over Wolfe and Dewease.

Stutts and Alan Krimes rounded out the top five finishers.

Sixth through 10th went to Skylar Gee, Chase Dietz, Chad Trout, Tyler Ross and Matt Campbell.

Heats went to Cisney, Gee and Wolfe.

The 358 feature took the green flag only to see a violent two-car flip take place on the frontstretch as the field roared past the flagstand.

The cars of John Stehman and Justin Foster catapaulted past the flagman, into the outside fences and busted apart as they landed with one fuel cell vaulting forward before landing near the first turn.

Both drivers climbed from their cars just as rains began falling, forcing completion of the main to July 30.


Feature Finish

7/16/21

410 sprint cars, 25 laps: 1. Freddie Rahmer, 2. Lucas Wolfe, 3. Lance Dewease, 4. TJ Stutts, 5. Alan Krimes, 6. Skylar Gee, 7. Chase Dietz, 8. Chad Trout, 9. Tyler Ross, 10. Matt Campbell, 11.

The modern-day, consecutive-year history of the Summer Nationals dates back to 2002 when the show was a three-day event with Danny Lasoski, Joey Saldana and Greg Hodnett taking wins.

However events dubbed “Summer Nationals” were first contested at the oval back in 1972 with Jan Opperman and Bobbie Adamson recorded as the victors.

Both nights of this year’s Summer Nationals shows will include full programs of time trials, heats and feature events.

The July 23 outlaws-posse match will feature a 25-lap main paying $10,000 to win while the July 24 Saturday finale Champion Racing Oil Summer Nationals feature will offer $20,000 to the winner.

Last year, Shane Stewart and David Gravel split Summer Nationals winning laurels with Gravel scoring the big 20K in the Saturday finale.

California’s Brad Sweet is the current outlaws point leader over Gravel.

Sweet has already put up 13 wins to date this season on the tour while Gravel has posted six.

Williams Grove has been one of Gravel’s strengths in recent seasons and he is sure to be on top of his game for the Summer Nationals.

Lance Dewease is the current Williams Grove Speedway point leader and is still the only driver to repeat in action at the historic venue this year.

Dewease will enter the July Posse/Outlaws fracas fresh off of a second and a third place finish when the Outlaws were last at the track in May.

SMITH PASSES CANNON LATE FOR FIRST 360 SPRINT CAR OPEN WIN; BARD CAPTURES THIRD SELINSGROVE 305 SPRINT CAR VICTORY; CAMPBELL WINS FIRST IN ROADRUNNERS

NEXT: 75th ANNIVERSARY RACE TUESDAY, JULY 20 AT 7:30PM!

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Mark Smith of Sunbury has won a lot of races in four different open wheel divisions throughout his career at Selinsgrove Speedway. On Saturday night he finally captured what had been an elusive first victory in the Mach 1 Chassis 360 Sprint Car Open after making an exciting late-race pass by Pat Cannon of Etters.

Smith earned $5,075 for the win in the 30-lap championship race at the wheel of the CRC Brake Cleaners/NTK Spark Plugs No. M1. It was Smith’s 29th overall 358-360 sprint car win at the track.

Garrett Bard of Wells Tannery scored his third Selinsgrove win of the season in the 20-lap 305 sprint car feature, while Adam Campbell of Danville notched his first career roadrunner win in the division’s 12-lap race.

Selinsgrove Speedway will present the 75th Anniversary Race featuring 410 sprint cars and super late models plus a professional fireworks display at 7:30 p.m. TUESDAY, JULY 20, the actual anniversary date of the track’s opening in 1946. Each of the 25-lap main events will pay $5,075 to win. Track gates will open at 5 p.m.

Polesitter and former four-time 360 Open winner Blane Heimbach took the lead at the drop of the green flag in the main event. Heimbach was trailed by second-place starter Davie Franek for the first lap until sixth-place starter Pat Cannon stormed into second. A lap later, third-place starter Michael Walter got by Franek for the third spot.

On the fourth lap, a water line reportedly broke loose from the engine block on Heimbach’s car and ended his hopes of a fifth victory in the race. Cannon inherited the lead and had Walter and Franek lined up behind him. On the sixth lap, fifth-place starter Mark Smith took the third position and set his sites on the leaders.

At the halfway mark, Cannon led Walter, Smith, seventh-place starter Jason Shultz, and 11th-place starter Derek Locke. On the 18th lap Smith got by Walter for second and started to reel in Cannon.

The final caution flag unfurled on lap 26 when Brett Wright stopped in turn four with a flat tire. On the ensuing restart a war on wheels unfolded between Cannon and Smith for the lead and win.

With two laps to go Smith made the winning pass using the inside line on the frontstretch. He went on to take the checkered flag by the slimmest of margins over Cannon, Shultz, Locke, and Walter.

Fourth-place starter Garrett Bard shot into the lead at the start of the 305 sprint car main event. Bard was chased by polesitter Nick Sweigart for the entire distance. By lap five, eighth-place starter Kassidy Kreitz moved into the top five.

At the halfway point, Sweigart and sixth-place starter Derek Hauck dueled for the runner-up position. Three laps later, Kreitz powered into the third position.

While Bard was holding the lead, Kreitz closed in on Sweigart in a race for second. At the checkered flag, Bard was victorious by 3.2 seconds over Sweigart, Kreitz, Hauck, and Domenic Melair.

Polesitter Adam Campbell wired the field for his first roadrunner win but not without several challenges from second-place starter Curtis Lawton.

On the sixth circuit, third-place runner Jake Jones got sideways off turn two and collected Tom Underwood. Jones was able to rejoin while Underwood was sidelined for the remainder of the event.

When the race resumed, Campbell kept his No. 2 at the front of the pack with Lawton and fourth-place starter Keith Bissinger in pursuit. Campbell was victorious over Lawton, Bissinger Terry Kramer, and Jones.

MARKS & DIETRICH DUEL FOR SPEEDWEEK TITLE & SERIES FINALE SUNDAY AT SELINSGROVE:
Marks Takes Thrilling Race Win, Dietrich Clinches Second PA Speedweek Title

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – One of the largest crowds in recent history flocked to Selinsgrove Speedway Sunday night to witness a thrilling duel between Brent Marks of Myerstown and Danny Dietrich of Gettysburg, the top two PA Speedweek Series points drivers, in the 30-lap Opperman-Bogar-Heintzelman Memorial for 410 sprint cars.

Marks secured the lead late in the race after exchanging multiple slide jobs with Dietrich and took the checkered flag and $7,500 winner’s share. Dietrich, however, settled the Speedweek Series championship with his second career title. Only 50 points separated Dietrich and Marks entering Sunday’s finale.

Marks ended the eight-race series with a total of three wins and a second-place points finish. It was also his second sprint car win of the year at Selinsgrove.

Anthony Macri of Dillsburg was the night’s Fast Tees fast qualifier over the 33-car field with a lap time of 16.923. Blane Heimbach of Selinsgrove earned a $600 bonus as the race’s hard charger.

Garrett Bard of Wells Tannery won his second 20-lap 305 sprint car feature of the season at the track.

Selinsgrove Speedway is back in action at 7:30 p.m. this Saturday, July 10, with the 21st annual Mach 1 Chassis National Open for 360 sprint cars paying $5,075 to win.

Kyle Reinhardt and Danny Dietrich shared the front row for the start of the 410 sprint car main event with Dietrich powering into the early lead. Fourth-place starter Brent Marks made a bold move entering turn one to quickly take the second position.

By lap five, a high-speed chase ensued in slower traffic with Marks in pursuit of Dietrich. The first caution flag unfurled on lap nine when Chase Dietz’s car rolled to a stop on the frontstretch. When the race resumed, Reinhardt put in a bid for second but was shut out by Marks.

Anthony Macri, the night’s fast qualifier, brought his car to a stop on the frontstretch with mechanical issues on lap 11.

At the halfway point, Dietrich led Marks, Reinhardt, eighth-place starter Rico Abreu and sixth-place starter Logan Wagner. With 10 laps to go, Dietrich and Marks got into a battle royale for the lead, pulling off thrilling slide jobs through the turns for several laps.

Marks secured the lead on lap 25 but Dietrich wasn’t about to give up and fought a collapsed nose wing on his sprinter. At the checkered flag, Marks was victorious by just two second over Dietrich. Abreu was credited with third when Reinhardt’s car was disqualified for being under weight. Dewease and ninth-place starter Justin Peck rounded out the top five.

Second-place starter Derek Hauck led the first three laps of the 305 sprint car feature. Hauck was chased by fourth-place starter Garrett Bard. Early in the race, Hauck and Bard swapped the lead.

Lance Dewease Continues Williams Grove Winning Ways In Speedweek Mitch Smith Memorial Friday

Fayetteville racer takes third win in a row, fourth in last five oval races!

7/2/21

Mechanicsburg – Lance Dewease continued to flex his mid-season muscle at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night by scoring an unprecedented sixth career victory in the crown jewel of Pennsylvania Speedweek, the 33rd annual Mitch Smith Memorial for sprint cars worth $15,000.

The victory just added to Dewease’s illustrious career statistics, as it was the 103rd of his sprint car career at Williams Grove, his third win in a row at the track and his fourth in the last five races there.

In addition, the win was his 31st overall in career speedweek action, making him the winningest driver in speedweek history since the series began in 1991.

The first 15 laps of the Mitch Smith Memorial went non-stop with polesitter Matt Campbell leading the way over second starter Dewease until lap 11.

Campbell entered the rear of the field with the lead on the eighth tour with Dewease, Freddie Rahmer and Danny Dietrich in tow.

And once in traffic, Dewease ate up Campbell’s advantage to pull off a slide job in the third and fourth turns to net the lead as the pair raced to the line on lap 11.

Meanwhile, drivers Rahmer, Justin Peck and Brent Marks were staging a wild battle for fourth when Marks slowed to a stop at the halfway point, bringing out the first caution flag of the race but rejoining for the new green.

That caution would turn out to be the first of four yellow or red flags during the second half of the event.

Dietrich disposed of Campbell for second on the restart and Peck followed suit a lap later.

And then that pair was battling for second with eight laps to go when the red flag appeared for Dylan Cisney who crunched his car after hopping the fourth turn cushion.

The stoppage erased a 1.962 second lead built by Dewease and during the red flag condition, Rahmer withdrew from the race

The recently crowned Western Pa Speedweek Champion, Ryan Smith got by Campbell for fourth on the ensuing restart and began challenging Peck for the third spot.

But then again the red flag appeared, this time for Campbell who jumped the cushion in turn three while Marks piled in as he raced in the ninth spot.

With five laps to go, action again resumed with Dewease holding sway while Peck got under Dietrich for second, nearly taking the spot only to see Dietrich squeeze back around against the outside turn two rail.

The final caution period was caused with three laps to go when Sam Hafertepe Jr. blew a right rear tire.

Dewease took the win by 1.403 seconds.

Peck, Smith and Lucas Wolfe completed the top five.

Daryn Pittman, 20th starter Paul McMahan, Mike Wagner, Rico Abreu, and a continually rebounding Marks rounded out the top 10.

Cisney set quick time over the 32-car field with a lap of 18.156.

Wolfe, Dietrich, Campbell and Rahmer won the heat races. Robbie Kendall won the B-main.

Unofficial Speedweek points: Dietrich 900; Marks 850; Abreu 818; Peck 783; McMahan 686; Wolfe 674; Rahmer 637; Smith 595; Macri 582; Hafertepe Jr. 571.

Kyle Larson Wins Wild PA Speedweek Race at Port Royal Speedway

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Penn. (July 1, 2020) - For fans who attended the night six Pennsylvania Speedweek presented by Red Robin Gourmet Burgers event at Port Royal Speedway on Wednesday night, they were treated to one of the most exhilarating races of the year.

The race featured bad luck, lead changes, slide jobs and drama and when it was all said and done, it was Elk Grove, California’s Kyle Larson holding off the very best that Pennsylvania has to offer in a battle that fans will likely be talking about for years to come.

Larson bested local kingpin Lance Dewease, new series points leader Danny Dietrich, former Speedweek champion Lucas Wolfe and fellow invader Rico Abreu to score the $7000 prize for his second consecutive Speedweek triumph at the Juniata County oval.

“That was wild! I drove my ass of out there,” said Larson. “My car was just getting better and better and that was definitely a lot of fun.”

Anthony Macri and Danny Dietrich led the field of 24 cars to the green flag and it was Macri getting the early jump and going straight to the top of the Speedway. Larson, who started seventh on the grid, moved into the top-five one lap later.

However, the caution flew after only two circuits to halt any momentum when current Speedweek points leader Brent Marks came to a slow on the backstretch with motor issues. Marks attempted to rejoin the field, but pulled off again as the issues remained.

Macri again got the jump on the restart and Wolfe got by Dietrich to take the runner-up spot as well. Two laps later Abreu slipped by Larson on the bottom of turn’s three and four to move into the top five, while fourth-place starter Jeff Halligan was also making his presence known as he got by Dietrich for third.

The Concrete Kid raced out to a full straightaway lead over the next handful of laps, but his hopes of earning yet another Port Royal victory came to an end after seven laps when he clipped the lapped car of AJ Flick, who had spun deep in between turn’s one and two. The contact sent Macri’s car on its side to bring out the red flag and he would be unable to return.

Macri’s misfortune handed the lead to Wolfe and he worked the restart to a charm and blasted out to a hefty lead over Halligan. Dietrich briefly moved back into the second position before Halligan got back by on lap 10 and turned his focus to Wolfe.

Two laps later it was Larson sliding past Dietrich for a podium spot, while Halligan was putting the pressure on Wolfe. With 16 to go, Halligan attempted a slide job in turn’s three and four, but Wolfe thwarted the effort and again was able to pull away.

Dewease, who started 11th on the grid, crept his way into the top-five with 14 to go and one lap later Wolfe approached the tail-end of the field and was working his way through lapped traffic. Dewease got by Dietrich for fourth on the following circuit and with 10 laps remaining second through fourth were all three wide heading to the flag stand

The battle allowed Dietrich, whose car suddenly came back to life on the top of the Speedway, to move back into the fourth position past Dewease and Larson got by Halligan for the runner-up position with eight laps remaining.

Larson blasted away from Halligan, who quickly was dispatched of by Dietrich and Dewease for third and fourth the following lap and the trio set their sights on Wolfe. With seven laps to go, Larson was all over Wolfe for the point, but Wolfe held his ground and was able to slightly stretch his lead heading to the flag stand. Larson tried again in turn’s one and two with five laps to go, but Wolfe was steady with his line up top.

Larson got his opening the following lap as Wolfe smacked his right rear against the outside guardrail in between turn’s one and two, which allowed Larson to pull ahead for the lead down the backstretch and entering turn three. Wolfe diamonded the turn exiting turn four to pull alongside of Larson heading to the line and it was Larson by mere inches with three laps remaining.

This time it was Larson getting into the outside guardrail in turn one, allowing Wolfe to power back to the lead entering the backstretch. Dewease pulled even alongside Larson for second as well, while Dietrich lurked just behind the pair in fourth.

Wolfe led the lap at the flag stand, but Larson had him set up entering turn one and again pulled under for the lead exiting turn two. Wolfe tried a crossover move down the backstretch and the two leaders were dead even heading into turn three, but Larson had the preferred line up top and cruised ahead to take the white flag.

Dewease and Dietrich both split Wolfe to move into second and third, but the clean air ahead of Larson and the battling behind him allowed him to cruise ahead untouched to take the checkered flag by 1.190 seconds over Dewease and Dietrich. Wolfe came home fourth followed by Abreu.

Halligan, Mike Wagner, Freddie Rahmer, Paul McMahan and Packer’s Concessions Quick Time award winner Logan Wagner rounded out the top-ten.

“I got my wing too far back and I got too greedy in turn one and plugged the fence and came across and thankfully Lance wasn’t able to slide me,” said Larson. “I had to throw some big bombs at Lucas for the lead and that was just wild out there. What a fun race that was and I just love this place.”

For Dewease, he didn’t think he had a car capable of contending early on and felt lucky to be in contention at the end. His team dealt with mag issues after heat races and they were scrambling just to start the feature.

“They had half the cars on the track and we still didn’t have a mag in the motor yet,” he said. “They got the mag in, put fuel in, threw tires on and never even touched the race car so to run second against these guys is great. We were not that good and hats off to Kyle. That was a hell of a race for these fans and I’m just happy to part of it and be in second.”

For Dietrich, he was disappointed to be third but was able to capitalize on Marks early misfortunes to overtake the Speedweek points lead by 10 points with four races remaining on the schedule.

“The 57, Lance and I really got rolling there in the middle of the race and we were just as good as the 57 car but we needed to be ahead of the 69k to get there,” he said. “I hope the fans enjoyed that race, but I know as a driver it was fun as hell. We want to win a Speedweek championship, but we also want to win these races. I’m not complaining, but I want to be standing in victory lane and we’ll keep at it.”

Daryn Pittman earned the Valley Supply/Jake’s Golf Carts Hard Charger Award by advancing 11 positions to finish 12th, while Sam Hafertepe Jr. Earned the J & S Fabrication Warrior Award worth $1000 courtesy of a random draw.

URC Sprint Cars

Anthony Macri overcame the disappointment of losing out on a opportunity to win the 410 portion of the PA Speedweek event by winning the United Racing Club 360 feature event from the third starting spot.

Macri’s win was worth $2000 and was his second of his career in the division at the Speedway. Macri took his time reeling in pole sitter Adam Carberry and took the lead for good with five laps remaining to earn the victory by 3.989 seconds.

Mark Smith, Jason Shultz, Carberry and Ryan Smith rounded out the top-five followed by Derek Locke, Pat Cannon, Ryan Kissinger, Ryan Taylor and Dallas Schott making up the top-ten.

The win continued an 11-race trend with the series at Port Royal Speedway that has seen 410 drivers claim victory pulling double-duty.

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

KYLE LARSON POCKETS $10,000 & HODNETT CUP AS RYAN GODOWN COLLECTS $3,000 FOR ODIFIED VICTORY TUESDAY NIGHT AT GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY

BECHTELSVILLE, PA June 29 2021. . . . . . . . The NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series packed the Grandview Speedway, but the 410 Sprint Cars delivered a show on Tuesday Night for PA Sprint Car Speedweek presented by Red Robin, with NASCAR driver Kyle Larson picking up the Sprint Car win. Ryan Godown dominated the NASCAR 358 Modified feature event.

Larson kept the fans on the edge of their seat. Aboard the #57 Silva Motorsports Sprint Car, the Elk Grove, CA-native led the final stretch of the event collecting the $10,000 prize and getting his name etched on the Greg Hodnett Cup Perpetual Trophy. This marks Larson’s fourth Grandview win in the past five PA Speedweek appearances.

“It’s always cool coming to Grandview, and I love running Pennsylvania Speedweek,” Larson exclaimed in Victory Lane.

While Larson picked up the win, it was no easy task, with Brent Marks and Danny Dietrich right on his tail.

“Brent got into some water on the bottom of the track and slipped up,” Larson explained. “That gave me the chance to get by him. I could hear and feel them coming up on the top.”

Marks finished in second and started in second driving by Anthony Macri to secure the top spot on Lap 1 and never looked back. “The Myerstown Missile” sliced and diced his way through the back markers as laps quickly ticked away on the 1/3-mile oval.

A close call for the leaders halted the action on lap 7 when Jeff Halligan spun, barely clipping third-place-runner Christopher Bell and collecting the #13 of Justin Peck – the winner of the night prior.

Marks continued his reign on the restart with Anthony Macri close behind, while Christopher Bell and Larson – who usually race in NASCAR-style race cars – battled in their open-wheel machines.

The action halted on lap 10 for a multi-car incident that ended with Michael “Buddy” Kofoid upside down in turn three while running mid-pack. The accident also involved fan favorites Ryan Smith and Freddie Rahmer.

The top four runners stayed the same when the green flag flew, with Larson moving into the runner-up spot at the mid-way point, and Danny Dietrich moving into fourth and then taking third just two circuits later.

The field tightened as lapped traffic proved tricky before a lap 26 caution for Paul McMahan.

Larson made a move on Marks at the restart taking the top spot and racing on for the victory. Marks settled for second, Danny Dietrich came home in third, Anthony Macri in fourth and Kyle Moody completing the top-five finishers.

Brent Marks set quick time with a lap of 11.888, collecting a $100 bonus dedicated to the Memory of Steve Smith Sr., who passed away in early June. Smith was the winner of the inaugural Thunder on the Hill Racing Series event in 1990.

410 Sprint Car Heat races were won by Anthony Macri, Rico Abreu, and Kyle Larson – who picked up ZEMCO Header Gift Certificates. Sprint Car B-Main was won by Ryan Taylor.

Ringoes, NJ’s Ryan Godown – a two-time Thunder on the Hill winner – picked up his first Grandview victory since 2018. By luck of the draw, Godown started in the second position on the field and took the lead on the initial circuit around the Bechtelsville oval.

With Godown leading, all eyes were on the battle for second with Brett Kressley and Duane Howard battling back-and-forth, while Jeff Strunk moved into fourth from a ninth-place starting position and then moved into second two circuits later.

The only caution of the program flew on lap 28 for Blaine Bracelin, but that didn’t stop Godown from sailing onto victory and the $3,500 winner’s share. Jeff Strunk finished in second, Duane Howard in third, Brett Kressley in fourth, and Craig VonDohren in fifth.

NASCAR 358 Modified GT Radiator Heat Races were won by Justin Grim, Duane Howard, and Kevin Hirthler – each picked up a $100 bonus courtesy of Harry & George Turner of GT Radiator. Modified B-Main was won by Doug Manmiller.

The NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series returns on Tuesday, August 3 with the Ken Brenn Midget Masters featuring the NOS Energy Drink USAC National Midget Tour and the NASCAR 358 Modifieds.

LINCOLN SPEEDWAY

Abbottstown, PA

JUSTIN PECK TRIUMPHANT IN DRYDENE 30- SCORES TWO CAREER FIRSTS IN $7,000 WIN

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Saturday, July 3 (5:00 p.m.) Monster Freedom Fest: Monster Trucks & Central PA Legends

Saturday, July 10 (7:30 p.m.) DEAN’S AUTO PLAZA NIGHT: 410 Sprints ($5,000 to win), 358 Sprints ($2,000) and Classic Cars

Saturday, July 17 (7:30 p.m.) PEPSI NIGHT: 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints and ARDC Midgets

Abbottstown, PA (June 28, 2021) – Justin Peck scored two career firsts on Saturday in the $7,000 to win Drydene 30. Peck’s win was his first at Lincoln and his first during PA Speedweek. “I love coming here to Lincoln Speedway. It’s one of my favorite tracks in Pennsylvania.”

Peck started on the outside of the front row and took the lead coming out of turn 2, “As soon as I took off I knew we were pretty good.”

With track conditions changing throughout the night, Peck played his cards right to make it to the end of the 30-lap feature, “I was just trying to conserve it a little bit. Getting a curb up on the fence you can’t just go flat out for 30 laps.”

Gerard McIntyre drew the pole in Monday night’s redraw and Indiana invader Justin Peck lined up second.

McIntyre and Peck raced wheel to wheel into turn 1 when the green flag waved. Peck used the top line and had the advantage as they raced out of turn two.

Robbie Kendall was holding off the two NASCAR drivers in the field, Christopher Bell and Kyle Larson. Larson got by Bell for fifth on lap 4.

Kendall slid Ryan Smith for third and took the spot on lap 7. Larson followed to the outside of Smith and took the spot going into turn 3.

Peck caught lapped traffic on lap 8.

Bell tried a slider on Larson but lost a spot to Smith in the process. Bell got back by Smith in turns 1 and 2 to reclaim fifth on lap 11.

Kendall, Larson and Bell started closing in on McIntyre as they worked through lapped traffic.

Kendall was all over McIntyre trying to make the pass for second. Lap 15 saw Kendall and McIntyre make contact in turn 1. McIntyre did a full 360 spin and fell back to sixth and Kendall kept going and was running second.

The yellow flag came out on lap 17 when Freddie Rahmer fell off the pace.

Peck led Kendall, Larson, Bell and Buddy Kofoid to the cone for the restart.

Kendall looked to the inside of Peck and the two raced side by side out of turn 2 but could not make the pass. Kendall was within striking distance of Peck and Larson was running in third.

Larson was riding the top line to try and reel in Kendall. Larson dove under Kendall going into turn 3 with 9 laps to go and it didn’t stick. That move started a fierce battle for second between Kendall and Larson.

Larson was getting a great run off of turn 4 but Kendall got through 1 and 2 better.

Chase Dietz and McIntyre got together in the top of turn 2 on lap 23 to bring out the caution. Larson had made the pass on Kendall for second but the caution came out before they crossed the line.

The current Speedweek points leader, Brent Marks headed to the pits under the caution to change a flat tire.

Peck paced the field ahead of Kendall, Larson, Bell and Kofoid for the restart.

Peck and Larson went to the top with Kendall opting for the bottom.

Larson slid in front of Kendall going into turn 1 but with Kendall getting a better off of turn 2 he took the spot back.

Brandon Rahmer brought out the red flag on lap 26 when he flipped on the front stretch coming out of turn 4.

With four laps to go the top five for the restart were Peck, Kendall, Larson, Bell and Danny Dietrich.

Kendall looked to the inside of Peck on the restart with Larson sitting right behind them.

Dietrich was working on Bell for fourth. Dietrich slid Bell for the spot to take it at the white flag. Kendall looked to the bottom one last time but didn’t have enough to get by Peck.

Williams Grove Honors Career, Impact & Legacy Of Mitch Smith Friday

33rd annual running of Mitch Smith Memorial on tap

6/27/21
 

Mechanicsburg – When Williams Grove Speedway opens its gates this Friday night for racing action, it will do so for the 33rd year in a row in honor of a famed sprint car great, the late Mitch Smith of Linglestown.

The oval will host the RHI Magnesita 33rd annual Mitch Smith Memorial as part of Pennsylvania Speedweek on July 2 at 7:30 pm.

And the spectacle to honor Smith will pay a lucrative $15,000 to win out of the largest total speedweek purse to be posted in all 2021 series events to go along with the largest amount to win.

Richard D. “Mitch” Smith was the original “Mr. Excitement” of Pennsylvania sprint car lore.

At Williams Grove Speedway alone he ended his four-decade long career in 1978 with 27 sprint car wins and nine super modified victories.

But overall on his career, his checkered flags added up to 179.

The name Mitch Smith became cemented nationally when in 1971 the “little guy” from Linglestown trounced the boasting stars of the United States Auto Club, not once, but three times when they towed into the region.

In 1971, USAC was to sprint car racing what the World of Outlaws is today.

USAC competition was the way to Indy. The USAC circuit groomed its drivers to sit on the Indy 500 starting grid.

And start they did.

But on June 19 and September 25 at Williams Grove Speedway in 1971 and again on July 17 at Selinsgrove Speedway, Mitch Smith used a rarely doled out temporary racing permit issued by USAC to just a few local drivers to beat the traveling band – badly.

The USAC stars were furious.

Protests were lodged and tear-downs were performed.

All was legal.

Smith had beaten the unquestionable best in the sprint car business not once, not twice but three times.

The word went out.

“The Linglestown Leadfoot,” Mitch Smith, had trounced USAC in Central Pennsylvania.

Smith retired from the sport in 1978 and in 1988 at the age of 58 was felled by a massive heart attack.

In 1995 Mitch Smith was inducted posthumously into the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame in Knoxville, Iowa.

It is the legacy left behind and the impact that Smith had on the sport in the region and at Williams Grove Speedway that the oval honors again this year with the running of the 33rd annual Mitch Smith Memorial on Friday night.

Kyle Larson is the defending winner of the prestigious Mitch Smith Memorial.

Lance Dewease is the winningest driver in Smith Memorial history, having scored wins in 1992, 1995, 1997, 2001 and in 2018.

Fred Rahmer has four Smith Memorials to his credit along with the late Greg Hodnett.

Stevie Smith won the inaugural event in 1989.

 

 

Williams Grove 33rd Annual Mitch Smith Memorial Is Friday Night

Crown Jewel of Speedweek Boasts Largest Total Purse And Largest Winner’s Share at 15K

6/27/21
 

Mechanicsburg - Williams Grove Speedway will present the biggest race of the 2021 Pennsylvania Speedweek Series this Friday night, July 2 at 7:30 pm when it hosts the RHI Magnesita 33rd annual Mitch Smith Memorial for 410 sprint cars.

Known for decades as The Crown Jewel of Speedweek, the Mitch Smith Memorial will pay a hefty $15,000 to win out of a total purse worth nearly $40,000.

The RHI Magnesita Mitch Smith Memorial honors the late, great Richard “Mitch” Smith of Linglestown who succumbed to a massive heart attack in 1988, some 10 years after retiring.

Smith left the sport in 1978 after a four-decade long career wherein he scored 27 sprint car wins and nine super modified victories at Williams Grove alone to go along with 179 overall checkered flags.

Time trials will set the starting grids for the Friday Smith Memorial with the main event going 30-laps in distance.

The fastest driver in qualifying time trials will earn the $300 Fast Tees Fast Time Award, courtesy of Fast Tees Screenprinting of Thompsontown.

The Smith Memorial will be another race in the 2021 Hoosier Diamond Series at the track.

The special speedweek event will be a stand-alone sprint car program, focusing solely on the speedweek 410 sprint cars.

Fireworks will also be part of the Independence Day holiday weekend show.

Adult general admission for the race is set at $25 with youth ages 13 – 20 admitted for $10. Kids ages 12 and under are always admitted for FREE at Williams Grove Speedway.

RHI Magnesita is the leading global supplier of high-grade refractory products, systems and solutions which are critical for high-temperature processes exceeding 1,200°C in a wide range of industries,

including steel, cement, non-ferrous metals and glass.

With a vertically integrated value chain, from raw materials to refractory products and full performance-based solutions, RHI Magnesita serves customers globally, with around 12,000 employees in 30 main production sites and more than 70 sales offices.

RHI Magnesita tailors the best solutions for customers by making over 120,000 products ranging from bricks and lining mixes to flow control products such as slide gates, nozzles and plugs.

First run in 1989, Stevie Smith won the very first Mitch Smith Memorial before returning for wins again in 2012 and 2014.

No driver owns more wins in the speedweek event than five-time champion Lance Dewease who is the current Williams Grove point leader.

Kyle Larson is the defending Smith Memorial winner.

Among others, previous winners have included Joey Allen, Alan Krimes, Daryn Pittman, Trey Starks, Don Kreitz Jr. Fred Rahmer, Greg Hodnett and Danny Dietrich.

Marks’ last win came on May 11, 2013 and 2,968 days later he earned his ninth career Lincoln victory. Marks addressed the lengthy absence in victory lane, “It’s been a long time since I’ve been in victory lane here at Lincoln Speedway. The car was awesome all night long.”

Marks led from green to checkered and the closest anyone came to challenging him for the lead was Lance Dewease late in the race, “I hated to see those cautions there late. You never know what’s going to go on behind you, especially with Lance [Dewease] behind me there.”

Saturday night was the 22nd Annual Kevin Gobrecht Memorial. In honor of Kevin’s family owned #92 sprint car, Marks took home a $9,200 check for his win. “It’s great to get another win under Kevin’s honor. He’s a special person and they have a special family.”

Marks shared the front row with last week’s winner at Lincoln, Robbie Kendall.

Marks led the field into turn 1 with Kendall using the high line to make up some ground.

California invader, Rico Abreu, lined up fifth for the drop of the green flag and ripped around the top of the track to get up to second by lap 2.

Lance Dewease got by Sam Hafertepe on lap 2 and went to work on Kendall for third.

Dewease went to the bottom on the restart trying to make a move on Abreu for second. The two raced side-by-side coming out of turn 2 on lap 11 with Rico hanging on to the spot.

As the halfway point approached, lapped traffic loomed ahead of Marks. Two laps later, on lap 17, lapped traffic came into play.

Freddie Rahmer was on the move and after starting 15th the current point leader was up to seventh on lap 17.

Dewease was closing in on Rico again in lapped traffic and got a run off the bottom of turn 4 to take the spot at the line on lap 22.

Dewease and Abreu raced wheel to wheel at the line again on lap 23 with Lance holding on to second.

Dewease now had his sight set on Marks when the yellow came out on lap 27 for Hafertepe. Sam had been running sixth when he got backwards in turn 2.

Marks led Dewease, Abreu, Dietrich and Rahmer on the restart.

Marks and Dewease both went to the bottom with Abreu opting for the top.

The top five for the one lap shootout were Marks, Abreu, Dietrich, Rahmer and Paul McMahan.

Marks went to the bottom and Rico opted for the top with Dietrich and Rahmer racing wheel-to-wheel.

Sammy Rial started on the pole and had the advantage into turn 1 when the green flag dropped but the caution came out before a lap was in the books when two cars got out of shape in turn 1. John Wright and Brandon Wanner were the two cars involved.

The field lined up for a complete restart. Rial once again had the advantage into turn 1 as Andrew Hogue, Austin Hogue and Michael Goodwin battled for second behind him.

The yellow flag flew again on lap 1 when Howard Williams and Justin Yohn got together on the back stretch.

Dewease Gets Storybook Grove Win To Celebrate Mechanic Brown’s Career

Fayetteville driver opens PA Speedweek with victory at Williams Grove Friday

Derek Locke Gets Fourth 358 Sprint Win

6/25/21

Mechanicsburg – Like a poet puts pen to paper, Lance Dewease put wheels to track on Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway and wrote another verse in the story of his sprint car career by claiming the Davey Brown Tribute race, an event run in honor of his 87-year old Hall of Fame Mechanic.

It was a storybook opener to the annual Pennsylvania Speedweek series for Dewease as he claimed the 102nd victory of his career at the track worth $6,000 as the 2021 version of speedweek opened to the roar of 38 cars and a huge crowd.

In the 358 sprint main, Derek Locke continued to dominate the division by winning his fourth win in as many races run at the track to date this season.

Dewease set overall fast time to start the night with a lap of 16.846 seconds and then fell way behind in his heat race before racing back to fifth in order just to make the show.

And then a redraw of four set him on the outside of the second row to start the 25-lap Davey Brown Tribute speedweek opener.

Rico Abreu and Dylan Cisney shared the front row.

Abreu took to the cushion and the lead when action began with Cisney, Anthony Macri and Dewease following.

Dewease edged by Macri for third on the third lap but by that time Abreu and Cisney had a sizable advantage.

But when the leaders entered the backmarkers on lap nine, Dewease began to dramatically close before first moving ahead of Cisney for second on the 11th tour.

However Cisney raced back into the spot and then drew up on Abreu as Dewease stalked them both.

It seemed almost too good to be true for Dewease who next found himself bearing down on the pair as they entered the third turn with Abreu on the cushion and Cisney just to his inside.

That’s when Dewease made a two-for-one pass and motored off of the bottom groove to bolt from third to the lead in the fourth turn to lead lap 12.

And the rest was history as the Fayetteville driver sped to a 5.247 second win over Macri and Danny Dietrich.

Dietrich started eighth in the field and came on late to duel with Macri as the pair advanced.

Freddie Rahmer and Abreu completed the top five.

Sixth through 10th went to Alan Krimes, Cisney, Brent Marks, Sam Hafertepe Jr., and Logan Wagner.

Dewease gave all the credit to his 87-year old mechanic, the honoree of the night, Davey Brown.

“It’s not about what it pays or anything, it’s all about the guy behind me,” Dewease said of Brown.

“This is his night and it’s all about him. I’m just fortunate enough to drive this thing. He does a wonderful job.”

“Tonight was a hectic night for him…but we put it in victory lane and that was the most important thing to me for him tonight. He’s not about being recognized for this stuff. He just wants to work on this racecar and make it go fast. That’s why he’s been so good for all these years.”

“It’s a neat deal they did for him tonight because usually the people aren’t racing anymore and Davey’s still at it at 87-years-old. He works really hard at this. It’s a big deal to drive this thing and be in victory lane for him,” Dewease said.

And Brown credited his driver.

“Lance drove a heck of a race tonight. I don’t think the car was super good, but he made up the difference. Nobody gets around this track better than him. It was a great night,” Brown said.

Heat races were won by Danny Dietrich, Paul McMahan, Anthony Macri and Rico Abreu. TJ Stutts won the B-main.

Derek Locke started second in the 20-lap 358 sprint main and took the lead from Devin Adams on the sixth tour to speed to his fourth oval win of the year.

Locke to the win by well over a straightaway.

Adams rode home second followed by Rich Eichelberger, Steve Wilbur and Justin Foster.

Twin heats went to Wilbur and Locke.

NAPA AUTO PARTS PRESENTS THE HODNETT CUP, TUESDAY, JUNE 29 AT GRANDVIEW. . . .

RICO ABREU TO CHASE $10,000 410 SPRINT SPEED WEEK WIN, 358 MODIFIEDS JOIN SPECTACULAR THUNDER ON THE HILL DOUBLEHEADER

BECHTELSVILLE, PA June 19, 2021 . . . . . . One of the most personable competitors in dirt track racing, Rico Abreu, will make his return to the Grandview Speedway on Tuesday night, June 29 when the Pennsylvania 410 Sprint Speed Week Series presented by Red Robin invades “The Hill” as part of the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series. $10,000 is up for grabs to win the 40 lap Greg Hodnett Cup for the 410 Sprints. For the 358 Modifieds, they will also be on the June 29 race card with $3,000 going to the winner of their 30 lap feature. Gates open at 5 PM and race time set for 7:30 PM.

Rich Abreu of St. Helena, CA will be making the trip from the west coast, not only with plans of collecting the $10,000, but he would like nothing more than to add his name to the Greg Hodnett perpetual trophy. Hodnett, a six time Thunder Champion and nine time Thunder on the Hill feature winner is being remembered after losing his life in a racing accident in 2018.

The Hodnett Cup was fabricated from one of Greg’s many trophies, a base was added where names of future event winners will be engraved. As a perpetual trophy, it will be available on race day for Victory Lane celebration, the winner’s name will be added along with the event date, and the trophy will be on display year-round at the Eastern Museum of Motor Racing at the Latimore Valley Fairgrounds. Aaron Reutzel was first to win the Hodnett Cup in 2019 and last year, it was Kyle Larson who took the victory in the 2020 Thunder on the Hill Speed Week event at Grandview Speedway.

Rico Abreu is loved by the fans as he is an entertaining individual and great race car driver. Just some of his accomplishments include the 2012 USAC National Midget Series Rookie of the Year Honor and in 2014 he was the USAC National Midget Series Champion. That same year he was the Belleville Midget Nationals Champion. In 2015 and 2016 he took top honors in the Chili Bowl. Rico also competed in over twenty-five NASCAR Camping World Truck Series events. In a winged 410 sprint car, he has numerous wins sprinkled across the United States.

But when it comes to the sometimes wicked and tricky one-third mile high banked Grandview Speedway, luck has not always been on his side. Like many drivers, Rico is challenged with taming Grandview, which is not an easy task. He has established himself as a contender for the win, but it just didn’t happen as yet. Maybe it will all turn around, Tuesday, June 29.

“I always look forward to racing at Grandview, it’s one of my favorite tracks in the country, it’s fast and high banked.”. Rico continued, “I love spending time with the fans before and after the races”. This is an invite to you to stop by the Rico Abreu t-shirt trailer before the races (he can often be found there) or visit him in the pits after the races. Tuesday night, June 29, he would like to meet you in the Thunder on the Hill victory lane.

This event always brings out the best 410 Sprint drivers and some of the early pre-entries include previous Thunder on the Hill feature winners Freddie Rahmer and Danny Dietrich who will be joined by Brent Marks, Anthony Macri, Kyle Moody, Lucas Wolfe, TJ Stutts, Justin Peck and Buddy Kofoid just to name a few.

The 358 NASCAR Modifieds, the weekly division at the Grandview Speedway will also be part of this event, bringing two premier divisions to this venue on the same night, a spectacular Double-header. Modified qualifying events will lead up to the $3,000 to win 30 lap feature. Likely entries include Brett Kressley, Craig VonDohren, Jared Umbenhauer, Jeff Strunk, Duane Howard, Danny Bouc, Rick Laubach and Doug Manmiller to name a few.

Advance tickets are available by calling 443 513 4456. Please speak clearly and provide your first and last name and the number of tickets you need. Tickets may be paid for and picked up at the WILL CALL window on race night. Advance ticket holders may enter the grandstands at 4:30 PM. Advance tickets orders can be processed up to the day before the race.

We ask that you bring exact change when purchasing your advance tickets, general admission tickets and Pit Passes. Adult admission tickets are $30, children 6 to 11 are $10 and children 5 and under will be admitted free. The Pit fee is $40 and a license is not required.

Continued support of the Thunder on the Hill Racing Series is provided by NAPA Auto Parts, Levan Machine & Truck Equipment in Fleetwood, PA and Pioneer Pole Buildings. All three sponsors play a key role is the on-going success of the Thunder Series.

In the thirty-one previous years, there has been 142 Thunder on the Hill events with the payout in excess of $5,000,000. The all-time Thunder on the Hill feature winners list is a who’s who of dirt track racings’ local and national stars.

Dewease Wins 101 At The Grove, Cockrum Scores USAC Silver Crown

6/18/21

Mechanicsburg – Lance Dewease scored sprint car win number 101 at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, taking the lead from Robbie Kendall on the third lap to handily drive to the victory.

The $5,500 win for the driver of the No. 69K was his second of the year at the track and by taking the checkers Dewease became the first repeat winner of the season at Williams Grove after eight events.

In the 100-lap USAC Silver Crown main event, Shane Cockrum of Benton, Illinois, scored the $8,000 win after taking control on the 73rd lap.

Dewease started second in the 25-.lap 410 sprint car main and would follow polesitter Kendall for only two circuits before making his move for the lead.

At first Dewease looked to Kendall’s outside in the third turn only to fade left and come off of the bottom to get control at the line on the third circuit.

After getting control, his pace was slowed only twice, first with four laps completed and then again on lap 13.

Aboard the Heffner No. 27, Devon Borden took second from Kendall on lap six but then lost the spot to a surging Alan Krimes on the ninth circuit.

Krimes would go on to finish second behind Dewease by a margin of 3.941 seconds.

And the winner already has his sights set on next week’s event run in honor of his mechanic, Dave Brown Sr.

“Davey does a great job,” he said. “Any of you young kids come watch him work one night and see if you can hang with an 87-year-old man that’s been doing it longer than I’ve been alive.”

“We got (win) 100 out of the way the other week, so next week we can really try to win his race. It would be fitting for us to be sitting here in victory lane.”

Anthony Macri rode home third followed by Kendall and Borden.

Sixth through 10th went to Freddie Rahmer, Steve Buckwalter, Doug Hammaker, Brandon Rahmer and Chad Trout.

Heats went to Kendall, Dewease and Borden with Ricky Dieva taking the consolation race.

USAC winner Cockrum started the 100 circuit Silver Crown race from the seventh starting spot before working his way to the lead.

Polesitter Jason McDougal led the first 20 laps of the affair before eighth starter Logan Seavey of Sutter, California, got by for control with an inside move.

Seavey was well out in front when he suddenly slowed with driveline problems on lap 42, handing control back over to McDougal of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma.

Justin Grant restarted second and wasted no time making a bid for command, taking a low line for control when green replaced the yellow.

This began McDougal’s slip backwards while both Brady Bacon and Cockrum started coming to the front.

The pair raced side by side for a number of laps before Cockrum took the second spot for good.

With 30 laps to go, Bacon tried working the outside for second but instead Cockrum took his queue and bolted extremely low on the frontstretch to get inside of Grant with 27 laps to go.

And once he got the lead Cockrum began stringing his fastest laps of the race together while Shane Cottle came to second.

Restarts on laps 86 and 95 proved no contest for Cockrum who took the checkers by .466 seconds ahead of Cottle.

Chris Windom finished third followed by Bacon and Kyle Robbins.

Sixth through 10th went to McDougal, Carmen Perigo Jr., Justin Grant, Robert Ballou and Mike Haggenbottom.

Fast time was set by McDougal in track record time of 20.354 seconds.

USAC NATIONAL SPRINT CAR SERIES RETURN TO SELINSGROVE THURSDAY WAS A RACE 50 YEARS IN THE MAKING: GRANT SCORES VICTORY IN CLASSIC WINGLESS DUEL OVER BALLOU; DANNER TOPS EAST COAST 360 SPRINT CAR FIELD

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – In a race that was 50 years in the making, Justin Grant of Ione, Calif., wheeled the NOS Energy Drink No. 4 wingless sprint car to a thrilling victory in Thursday night’s first AMSOIL USAC National Sprint Car Series race at the track since 1971.

Grant earned $6,000 for the win in the 30-lap main event that was race three of five in the 2021 Eastern Storm Tour. Grant also won Tuesday night’s series race at Grandview Speedway.

The only other USAC National Sprint Car Series race held at Selinsgrove was on July 17, 1971, in which central Pennsylvania star Mitch Smith of Linglestown scored the upset victory over the national series drivers.

Chris Windom of Canton, Ill., set a new one-lap track record for wingless 410 sprint cars with a lap time of 19.506, eclipsing Smith’s 50-year mark of 23.420.

Briggs Danner of Allentown held off Alex Bright of Collegeville for his first career win at the track in the 20-lap USAC East Coast wingless 360 sprint car feature. It was Danner’s fourth win overall in the series this season. Bright was the winner of the May 22 race at Selinsgrove.

Selinsgrove Speedway is back in action at 7:30PM this Saturday, June 19, with the World of Outlaws Late Models Series in the $10,000-to-win Jeff’s Auto Body National Open for super late models. Joining the super late models will be the limited late models in a 20-lap feature. Pit gates open at 4 p.m. with grandstand gates at 5 p.m.

Polesitter Kevin Thomas Jr. led the early laps of the sprint car main event with second-place starter C.J. Leary in pursuit. While Thomas was setting a torrid pace in the lead, a multi-car battle unfolded behind him for the runner-up position between Leary, fourth-place starter Justin Grant, and sixth-place starter Chris Windom.

Windom stormed his way into second and put in several bids for the lead, then stole the lead with a slider in turn one on lap 12. At the same time, Grant advanced to second and eighth-place starter Briggs Danner was third.

At the halfway point, Windom led Grant and Danner. Meanwhile, seventh-place starter Robert Ballou became a threat as he raced into third a few laps later.

With seven laps remaining, Grant took the lead from Windom with a pass using the highline in turns three and four. A lap later in the same location, Windom and Ballou made contact resulting in a flat tire for Windom. Danner also entered the pit area with a low tire after making contact with the guardrail.

When the race resumed, it was a war on wheels as Ballou tried multiple sliders to get by Grant to no avail. At the checkered flag, Grant was victorious by three seconds over Ballou, Leary, Thomas Jr., and fifth-place starter Brady Bacon.

At the start of the wingless 360 sprint car main event, Brody Adamsky flipped hard in turn three but was not injured. On the second attempt to start the race, polesitter Joey Amantea powered into the lead and was chased by second-place starter Christian Bruno.

The red flag stopped the race again on lap two when Steve Drevicki tagged the turn four wall and flipped. Drevicki escaped injury. For the next couple of laps Amantea and fourth-place starter Briggs Danner, racing in both divisions, see-sawed for the lead.

On lap three, Danner secured the lead with an inside pass in turn two. By lap seven, fifth-place starter Alex Bright raced into second and set his sights on Danner. With seven laps remaining, Bright was quickly gaining on Danner but with four to go scraped the turn two wall and lost ground on the leader.

Bright made a last-ditch effort to catch Danner for the lead and win but fell short by just 1.72 seconds. Danner was victorious over Bright, Bruno, Amantea, and Ed Aikin.

THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES

NAPA AUTO PARTS THUNDER ON THE HILL VICTORIES GO TO JUSTIN GRANT AND JARED UMBENHAUER TUESDAY NIGHT AT GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY

BECHTELSVILLE, PA (June 15, 2021) – Two first-time NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series winners fought their way to victory lane on Tuesday night during the AMSOIL USAC National Non-Wing Sprint Car Series and NASCAR 358 Modified doubleheader at Grandview Speedway. Justin Grant of Ione, California kicked off the USAC Eastern Storm Speed Week with a win in the 40 lap $6,000 to win Jesse Hockett Classic as Jared Umbenhauer of Richland, PA won the 30 lap Modified feature paying $3,000 to win. In total, a purse in excess of $47,000 was paid to a field of twenty-six USAC Sprint Cars and 30 Modifieds.

All eyes were on Broken Arrow, AZ sensation Brady Bacon who was looking for his fifth consecutive USAC win in the Thunder on the Hill Racing Series at the Grandview Speedway. Bacon was a contender for the win, pressing Grant most of the race including a bold run at the leader in the final three laps. Bacon ran out of time and settled for the runner-up spot.

Grant led the NOS Energy Drink No. 4 machine to his first win of USAC’s Eastern Storm swing since its inception in 2007.

“Wins are hard, I was hustling every lap,” Grant said during Victory Lane celebrations. “This is a place I’ve struggled at, so it’s great to score a win.”

Grant started on the pole, alongside Pennsylvania favorite, Alex Bright. Grant pulled away at the start with Bright, Tanner Thorson, and Brady Bacon following nose to tail. The yellow flew on the fifth circuit for Jake Swanson, who moved into the work area and changed a broken shock.

A lap 13 restart offered an opening for Thorson and Bacon, who moved into the second and third places respectively. Thorson threw everything he had at Grant diving deep into the corners, but couldn’t complete the pass.

With Thorson in hot pursuit, Grant hammered down, pulling a full second lead just passed the halfway mark, before the action slowed for the final time on the 25th lap.

With Thorson and Bacon pushing as hard as they could to move passed Grant, Thorson got sideways with five laps remaining offering Bacon second place and a chance to challenge for the win.

They didn’t have enough for the California-native, Justin Grant who went on to claim the victory, ending Brady Bacon’s four-race win streak. Bacon would settle for second, Thorson rebounded for third, quick timer Kevin Thomas, Jr. came home in fourth, and Robert Ballou rounded out the top five.

Chris Windom finished in the seventh position scoring a $100 bonus from Clauson Marshall Racing celebrating Bryan Clauson’s birthday.

Brady Bacon is tied with Greg Hodnett for the most consecutive Thunder on the Hill wins at four.

The NASCAR 358 Modifieds rounded out a full night of action where Jared Umbenhauer led his family-owned No. 5 machine to a $3,000 win, his first Thunder on the Hill Racing Series win.

Umbenhauer started in the first row alongside Modified rookie, Jack Butler. The duo battled door to door for the first five laps around the one-third mile Grandview high banks, before a lap 6 slider gave Umbenhauer the lead.

The sole caution of the event flew on lap 13 when Ron Kline pulled to the high side of turn two.

Umbenhauer continued his dominance on the restart, with only a brief challenge from Jeff Strunk just passed the halfway mark, dodging lapped traffic and coasting on to the win.

Jeff Strunk finished in second, Craig VonDohren came home in third, Doug Manmiller in fourth and Mike Gular completed the top five finishers.

ZEMCO Headers offered $50 Gift Certificates to winners of both the USAC Sprint Car and Modified Heat Races. Those certificates were claimed by Briggs Danner, Robert Ballou, and Jake Swanson for USAC and Jared Umbenhauer, Brett Kressley, Duane Howard, and Justin Grim in the Modifieds.

GT Radiators added a $100 bonus to the Modified Heat Race winners Jared Umbenhauer, Brett Kressley, and Duane Howard.

The NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series returns on Tuesday, June 29 for Pennsylvania Sprint Car Speedweek featuring the 410 Sprint Hodnett Cup paying $10,000 to win and the NASCAR 358 Modifieds. Gates open at 5:00 PM and racing will get underway at 7:30 PM.

Worth the Price of Admission! Jeff Halligan, Austin Berry and Derek Hauck All Claim Victories in Exciting Night at Port Royal Speedway

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Penn. (June 13, 2021)- Jeff Halligan utilized some timely restarts and took advantage of other drivers bad luck to bring home his first Weikert's Livestock 410 Sprint Car victory at Port Royal Speedway in 2021.

The win was the second of the young up and coming drivers career at the Juniata County oval and was worth $4000. Logan Wagner, Dylan Cisney, Jared Esh and Mike Wagner rounded out the top five.

"We were stumbling really bad on the starts and it's something we need to fix, but It just must've been our night tonight," said Halligan. "I just can't thank all of my sponsors and crew enough. We've been trying so hard to get this car dialed in and we kind of took advantage some others misfortunes and I'm just so happy to be here."

Tyler Walton and Western Pennsylvania invader George Hobaugh lined up on the front row for the 25-lpa feature and it was Walton getting the early jump on the field. Ryan Smith and Halligan, who started fifth and sixth, were early movers as the pair sat third and fourth at the completion of lap one.

Walton built up more than a two second advantage over Hobaugh by lap five, but by lap seven Hobaugh had chipped away nearly a full second on the leader. The following lap Walton closed in on lapped traffic and Hobaugh continued to chip away at the lead with Smith in tow.

However, Smith's night came to an end three laps later when he slowed on the front stretch while running third with driveline issues to bring out the caution.

Hobaugh threw a slider on Walton entering turn one on the restart and briefly took the lead exiting turn two, but Walton powered back by down the backstretch. The battled opened up the door for Halligan, as he capitalized on Hobaugh's lost momentum to pull even with the runner-up spot at the line the following lap. He moved into the second position officially one lap later and Cisney followed suit two laps later to move into a podium spot.

Walton looked to be in control, but his hopes of getting his first career 410 Sprint Car victory came to an end with eight laps to go when he slowed exiting turn four when his vision was blocked as a result of mechanical issues with his hood.

The bad luck inherited the lead for Halligan, who was looking to finish two spots better than he did last weekend a the track.

"You know we seemed to be in the right place at the right time all night as I saw Ryan drop off and then Tyler had his issue and I was just hoping we weren't next," said Halligan. "I knew those guys behind me were going to be all over me after that, so I was just hoping the motor stumbles didn't cost us a chance there."

When Halligan's motor stumbled on the start, Cisney threw a wild slider entering turn one and he briefly held the lead before Halligan crossed back under down the backstretch. The two again exchanged the lead in turn's three and four, but it was Halligan again holding the lead with seven to go.

The two continued to jockey for position over the next two laps, with Halligan using every inch given to him to sneak back by for the lead each lap. It appeared Halligan may have finally gotten enough space between him and Cisney to go into cruise control with five laps remaining, but the final caution of the event flew one lap later when fourth-place running Hobaugh slowed in turn four with a flat tire.

CIsney tried a slider again on the restart, but again Halligan used the top side to pull ahead down the backstretch. The move opened the door for eighth-place starter Logan Wagner to enter the picture and over the next three laps Cisney and Wagner waged war for the runner-up spot.

With one to go, Wagner was able to capture the second spot officially, but it was too late as Halligan was off to the races. He crossed under the checkered flag by 2.690 seconds to earn the victory aboard his family owned No. 45 sprinter.

"It always seems that I'm racing with Dylan for the lead and it's never easy. He had a couple shots at me and I went down to three and four to block him and I thought it was a mistake, but it must not have been as I didn't see him again in one," said Halligan. "I never have to worry about racing any of these guys racing us clean and hard and he gave me a lane. Was it exactly one lane? Yes, but it was enough and that was a lot of fun."

For Wagner, it was yet another runner-up finish in what has been an extremely consistent season for the three-time defending track champion.

"We had a pretty hard fought run with Cisney at the end, but we were just picking cars off there early and taking advantage of restarts," he said. "Halligan had a really good car and hats off to him. This is like the fourth or fifth time this year we've run second and I feel like it's my home up here. We just need to venture a few feet forward and be in victory lane more."

For third-place finisher Cisney, he needed to get to clean air earlier to be able to capitalize on the speed of his car.
"I think we had the best car, but I just couldn't quite make it stick when we needed it," said Cisney. "That's tough racing out there. It's inch to inch and it's not a great spot to be in trying to make a move for the lead, but we'll take a third and go onto next weekend."

Blane Heimbach, AJ Flick, Anthony Macri, Gerard McIntyre and Justin Whittall rounded out the top ten. Flick was the recipient of the $1000 J&S Fabrication Warrior Award courtesy of a random draw and McIntyre was the Valley Supply Hard Charger by advancing 10 positions form his 19th starting spot.

Super Late Models

Austin Berry may still be catching his breath after an absolute barn burner took place in the River Valley Builders Super Late Model division Saturday night. Berry held on for dear life and outlasted Trevor Feathers, Colton Flinner and Gary Stuhler to earn his first career Super Late Model feature win of any kind at the Port Royal Speedway.

"You've got the Dream going on at Eldora and you show up at Port Royal for a regular $3000 to win show and there is 33 of the best cars in the country in the pits," said Berry. "We live 10 minutes from this place and we probably would have won one of these things sooner if we went somewhere else. My dad and I always said if we were going to do this and win, we wanted to race against the best and that's why we keep coming here is to be the best."

Chris Casner and Berry lined up on the front row for the feature and it was Berry getting the jump on the field early. Eighth-place starter Feathers was on the move form the start, as he settled into fourth three laps later.

Berry held a two second advantage over runner-up Donnie Lingo on lap five, but all eyes were on the rim riding of Feathers as he moved into third on lap six. With the top three drivers utilizing the top of the track, 10th-place starter Stuhler was creeping through the field slowly on the bottom and he moved into fourth with 16 laps to go.

One lap later the first caution of the event flew when Ross Robinson got turned around in turn one. Utilizing Delaware restarts, Lingo chose the bottom of the Speedway and that opened the door for Feathers to move into the second spot on the restart.

He pulled alongside of Berry on the backstretch as well, but couldn't muster by the leader and he settled into the runner-up position. Meanwhile, it was Flinner putting on a show as he went form ninth to fourth on the restart.

Flinner got by Stuhler for third one lap later and the front four competitors were all under a blanket when the caution flew for Robinson again, who slowed with mechanical issues in turn three.

While under caution, Finner was docked two positions as it was deemed he had jumped the start on the prior restart.

When the field returned to green, Berry again took off with the lead. Feathers tried ti dive bomb him for the lead entering turn three, but Berry was able to power ahead exiting turn four to lead the lap. Feathers tried the bottom again in one and two, only for Berry to power away again with 11 to go.

Berry remained within striking distance of both Feathers and Stuhler and the trio appeared destined to break away form the field when the caution flew for a Glenn Elliot spin in turn four with eight laps remaining.

The restart proved beneficial for Stuhler, as he crept under Feathers to move into the runner up spot. Meanwhile, Flinner was back for more as he used a vicious slide job to go from seventh to fourth with seven to go.

Feathers and Stuhler ran side by side just behind Berry over the next two laps, while Flinner was in heavy pursuit just behind the pair. All four leaders used every inch of the Speedway and with three to go, Flinner cut through the middle of both Stuhler and Feathers go to second.

Feathers took the spot back down the backstretch and again set his sights on Berry. Flinner again cut through the middle in turn's one and two to pull alongside of Berry exiting two and Berry got into the outside guardrail attempting to thwart the move.

He was able to pull ahead down the backstretch to remain in the lead and Feathers used the bottom in turn's three and four to take second back and pull alongside Berry heading to the flagstand.

Feathers on the bottom, Berry in the middle and Flinner on the extreme high side entered turn one on the final circuit and Feathers held the lead by a nose exiting turn two. However Berry took the spot back down the backstretch. All the while, Stuhler was lurking just behind the three waiting for an opportunity.

Flinner got a run on the high side exiting turn four and got into the rear of Berry, who slid up trying to hold off Feathers. The three drag raced to the finish line, with Berry holding on for his first victory by a mere .169 seconds. The distance form first to fourth was only .639 seconds total. Jamie Lathroum rounded out the top-five.

"That was unbelievable and the hardest 25 laps I have ever drove around this place. I am absolutely worn out," said Berry. "Handicap allowed us to start up front and I think that kind of shows what we can do. It's cool to start sixth or eighth and win a race, but I don't care if I start a hald lap ahead of everyone and win a race, if I win here I win."

For Flinner, it was the starting spot that was the biggest difference.

"We won our heat and ended up starting eighth and I didn't know how we were going to be in the feature," he said. "I had a really good car, but I needed a little more clean air to truly get him. With a few more laps I might have figured it out, but he did a good job and got the win."

PA Sprint Series

Derek Hauck used a lap 14pass on Garrett Bard to score his first Penns Valley Meat Market PASS 305 Sprint Car victory of the year of Port Royal Speedway.

Bard, who started third, took the lead form pole sitter Devin Adams on lap two and appeared to be smooth sailing for the victory.
Hauck, who started second, had fallen back early but regained the runner-up position on lap five. He utilized a restart with 12 to go to slide under Bard to take the lead, but Bard took it back in turn's three and four.

Hauck got his momentum together using the top of the speedway exiting turn four to taker the lead for good with six laps remaining. Hauck crossed under the checkered flag by an advantage of 1.069 seconds over Bard, Domenic Melair, Adams and Kassidy Kreitz.

Monday, June 28 (7:30 p.m.) PA SPEEDWEEK for 410 Sprint Cars ($7,000 to win!)

Abbottstown, PA (June 12, 2021) – Freddie Rahmer’s win on Saturday was his third of the season at Lincoln Speedway. It was also his third Fallen Firefighters Night victory, which Rahmer touched on in victory lane, “It’s pretty cool, this is the third one of these Brandon Little races we’ve won. They do a heck of a job promoting, this place was packed when we got here today.” Rahmer lined up eighth for the start of the 33-lap feature and worked his way to second by lap 13. Rahmer took the lead from Alan Krimes on lap 18 in lapped traffic. The feature ran non-stop until three laps to go, “We were decent most of the race. After the yellow I don’t think I was that good the last three laps.” Rahmer took home $5,000 for the win.

Alan Krimes drew the pole in the redraw and Tim Wagaman lined up second, both drivers had wins under their belts previously this season.

Wagaman had the lead at the line and led the field out of turn 2 with Krimes in second, Troy Wagaman third and TJ Stutts fourth. Freddie Rahmer, who started eighth was up to sixth on lap 2 and had Dylan Norris in his crosshairs. Rahmer took fifth from Norris on lap 5.

Last week’s winner, Aaron Bollinger, started 16th and was up to 10th by lap 6. Rahmer got by Stutts for fourth on lap 7 and started reeling in Troy Wagaman for third.

Krimes used the bottom in turns 1 and 2 to take the lead from Tim Wagaman on lap 10. Rahmer was still on the move taking third on lap 11 from Troy Wagaman.

The leaders entered lapped traffic and Rahmer moved into second on lap 13.

Rahmer tracked down Krimes as they worked through lapped cars. Rahmer took a look to the inside of Krimes in turns 1 and 2 on lap 16 but could not make the pass for the lead.

Rahmer and Krimes raced wheel to wheel down the back stretch with Rahmer taking the lead on lap 18.

Krimes kept Rahmer in reach as they continued to race through lapped traffic.

Lucas Wolfe, the night’s fast timer, went to work on Tim Wagaman for third as the laps wound down. Wolfe made the pass coming off the inside of turn 2 on lap 26.

Rahmer started pulling away from Krimes and had a 1.733 second lead with five laps to go.

The only caution of the race came on lap 30 when Troy Wagaman fell off the pace.

Freddie led Krimes, Wolfe, Cory Haas and Tim Wagaman to the cone for the restart.

Rahmer went to the bottom with Krimes choosing the top in turn 1. The bottom worked for Rahmer, and he held Krimes off in the three lap shootout to the checkered flag, winning the 33-lap race by 1.368 seconds. Wolfe finished third and Haas crossed the line fourth. Tim Wagaman completed the top five.

Chase Dietz earned the $200 hard charger award driving from 22nd to 6th. Heat race winners, Lucas Wolfe, TJ Stutts, Troy Wagaman and Dylan Norris, each took home a $100 bonus. Despite being the first non-qualifier, Chris Arnold took home an extra $100. Alan Krimes and Chase Dietz each received $250 for being the first two cars that were sporting Fallen Firefighter designs to finish. Lucas Wolfe’s quick time of 13.149 seconds earned him an extra $500. Right rear tires went to Tyler Ross, Matt Campbell, Tim Glatfelter, Jim Siegel, Dalton Dietrich, Trey Hivner, Aaron Bollinger, Jordan Givler, Brie Hershey and Kyle Moody thanks to generous sponsors.

Brett Wanner Scores First Win of 2021

Riley Emig and Mason Chaney shared the front row for the 20-lap feature on Saturday night.

Emig took the lead with Chaney and Brett Strickler racing wheel to wheel for second, but the caution flag waved before a lap was completed. Kane Eichenlaub nearly got upside-down in turn 3.

The field lined up for a complete restart with Emig once again taking the lead. A three-car battle for second between Chaney, Strickler and Brett Wanner was well underway when the caution came out again on lap 1. Ashley Cappetta and Chris Frank were tangled up in the bottom of turn 4.

Emig led Strickler, Chaney, Wanner and Adrian Shaffer on the restart. Wanner slid Chaney in turns 3 and 4 to take third. Shaffer followed moving up to fourth.

Emig was pulling away as Strickler and Wanner battled for second. Wanner took the runner up spot as Emig pulled off the track on lap 4. Wanner inherited the lead after Emig’s misfortune.

Kody Hartlaub, who was pulling double duty running both 410 and 358 sprints on Saturday, battled Chaney for fifth. The two race wheel to wheel with Hartlaub taking the spot at the line on lap 8.

Just as Wanner was catching the tail end of the field the yellow flag waved on lap 9 for Jake Miller who was sitting backwards in turn 4.

Wanner shot out to the lead on the restart as Strickler held off Shaffer as he challenged for second.

Wanner had a dominate lead of 4.963 seconds with 5 laps to go. Once again Wanner was closing in on lapped traffic.

Hartlaub got by Shaffer on lap 16 but the pass was negated by a late race caution. Hayden Miller got turned around in turn 4 with four laps to go. The caution erased Wanner’s 5.040 second lead over Strickler and the rest of the field.

Wanner led Strickler, Shaffer, Hartlaub and Steve Owings for the restart.

Jordan Strickler stopped on the front stretch bringing out the caution on the restart.

The field lined up again and another restart. Wanner got a good start and Hartlaub went to work on Shaffer for third. Hartlaub was searching the track for a way by Shaffer and made the pass on the inside of turn 3 with one lap to go.

Wanner crossed the line 2.477 seconds ahead of Strickler. Hartlaub finished third and Shaffer was fourth. Owings completed the top five.

Heat winners Brett Wanner, Riley Emig and Adrian Shaffer each took home a $100 bonus. CJ Tracy was the hard charger, driving from 23rd to 10th, earning him an extra $850. Jacob Balliet was the first non-qualifier and took home $120. Right rear tires went to Hannah Riser, Jeff Rohrbaugh, Tyler Esh, Zach Allman, Matt Findley, Kyle Rohrbaugh, Hayden Miller and Justin Foster thanks to generous sponsors.

TAYLOR WINS SELINSGROVE FIRST IN 360 SPRINT CAR WHITCOMB MEMORIAL;
 

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Ryan Taylor of Mertztown drove to his first career win at Selinsgrove Speedway in convincing fashion in Saturday night’s Patriot Sprint Tour Joe Whitcomb Memorial for 360 sprint cars.

Taylor’s win in the 25-lap tribute race was worth $2,571, and he became the third different winner in as many 360 sprint car races at the track this season.

Adam Carberry Levittown earned the pole for the start of the sprint car feature by winning $500 in the 10-lap Lil’ Bob’s Dash for Cash sponsored by the Walter family in memory of race fan Robert Walter Jr. of Selinsgrove.

Devin Hart of Port Royal powered to his second win of the season at Selinsgrove and eighth overall this year in the 20-lap limited late model main event.

Keith Bissinger of Orangeville held off two-time defending champion Jake Jones of Hunlock Creek for his fourth win of the season in the 12-lap roadrunner race.

Selinsgrove Speedway will be in action two times this coming week with national motorsports events featuring the AMSOIL USAC National Sprint Car Series Thursday, June 17, followed by the World of Outlaws Late Model Series Saturday, June 19. Both shows start at 7:30 p.m. Race information is available on selinsgrovespeedway.com.

Polesitter Adam Carberry charged into the sprint car lead at the drop of the green flag. For the first two laps Carberry and second-place starter Davie Franek dueled for the front spot.

On lap two Colby Womer caught the cushion high in turn two and flipped his sprint car. He was not injured.

When the race resumed, Carberry continued to set the pace until a caution flag for Mike Koehler and Jason Wagner in turn two slowed the pace. At the same time, Franek’s car developed a flat tire and was forced to restart on the rear of the field, moving Ryan Taylor into the runner-up position.

Taylor challenged Carberry for the lead and made the winning pass using the inside line off turn four on lap four. He then opened up a lead over Carberry.

At the halfway point, Taylor led Carberry, fourth-place starter Derek Locke, sixth-place starter Jason Shultz, and fifth-place starter Andy Best.

On the final lap, Locke got by Carberry for second and set his sites on Taylor. At the checkered flag, Taylor was victorious by 1.9 seconds over Locke, Carberry, Shultz, and Best.

Polesitter Chaz Buchinsky pulled into the early lead in the limited late model feature and was chased by second-place starter Jim Yoder for the first lap until sixth-place starter Devin Hart advanced to the runner-up position.

On the fourth lap Buchinsky got sideways in turn four and collected Steve Todorow who was racing in the fourth position. Hart inherited the lead and battled with Yoder for a few laps before stretching his lead in the second half of the race.

Hart won by more than a straightaway over Yoder, Casey Steinhoff, Todd Snook, and Ethan Beasom.

Polesitter Jake Jones led the start of the roadrunner feature with fourth-place starter Keith Bissinger in close pursuit. On the fifth lap, Bissinger made the winning pass using the inside lane through turns three and four.

On a lap seven restart, Jones challenged Bissinger for the lead to no avail, although he continued to race in the leader’s shadow to the finish. Bissinger took the checkered flag over Jake Jones, Terry Kramer, Nate Romig, and Adam Campbell.

Drama Of USAC Silver Crown Series Coming Back To Williams Grove June 18

6/6/21

Mechanicsburg – The national USAC Silver Crown Series will return to Williams Grove Speedway coming up in just two weeks, on Friday, June 18 for a big sprint car show that also includes the Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint cars.

Presented by KRS Graphics, the USAC Silver Crown Series will invade the track for the first time since 2019 to compete in a 100-lap main event paying $8,000 to win.

Action gets underway at 7:30 pm.

The June 18 USAC Silver Crown appearance at Williams Grove will be just the second date on the 2021 schedule for the monsters of the United States Auto Club.

The last time that Silver Crown was in action at Williams Grove it was Oklahoma’s Brady Bacon taking his first-ever Silver Crown Series win after what was a late-race bout of drama that saw one leader taken out of the event by his challenger from behind

Illinois driver Chris Windom was the early leader off of the front row as Steve Buckwalter of Royersford motored into second on lap 38 after starting in eighth spot.

Buckwalter followed Windom until a lap 47 restart when he was able to bolt underneath for control.

After a restart with 11 laps to go, Kody Swanson made a bid for the win only to come up short while also jumbling the field in the second turn that saw Brady Bacon zip through the cluster for the second spot while Windom got by Swanson for third.

Windom then jumped past Bacon to apply pressure to the leader.

However Windom proved rather ungraceful in his bid to steal the win with under a lap to go and the result saw Buckwalter spin out, forcing a green-white-checker run to the finish in which Windom ended up popping a tire just after taking the white flag.

Coming into this year’s Williams Grove show, Swanson has won the only event completed on the tour, at Terre Haute, Indiana.

In recent years, both Windom and Swanson have taken Silver Crown events at Williams Grove while other winners at the track dating back to 1980 include Sheldon Kinser and Eddie Leavitt.

Adult general admission for the June 18 racing program is set at $30 with students ages 13-20 admitted for just $10.

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

Abbottstown, PA (June 5, 2021) – Aaron Bollinger has been turning heads since his debut in the 410 sprint division last year. The young driver put together a solid night to park his family owned #16A sprint car in victory lane for the first time on Saturday night. An emotional Bollinger was at a loss for words, “I don’t even know what to say. We just won a feature with the baddest race cars on the planet.”
Making his first victory even sweeter is that it came on his father’s birthday. Bolling shared, “It’s just me and Dad in the garage. It’s tough.” Bollinger held true to the promise he made to his dad, that he would win the race for his birthday.
Bollinger won the race without brakes, “About five to go we blew every single brake pad out of this thing. Yeah, they blew out, I was nervous. We got it done and that’s all that matters.”
Brie Hershey started on the pole of the 30-lap feature with Chris Arnold lined up second.
Hershey and Arnold were wheel to wheel coming out of turn 2 with Hershey taking the advantage down the back stretch to lead lap one.
Jordan Givler fell off the pace on lap 2 but pulled into the infield preventing the yellow flag from coming out.
Scott Fisher, Matt Campbell and Bollinger battled for third behind the leaders with Campbell taking the spot on lap 4.
Bollinger got by both Fisher and Campbell on lap 5 to take third.
On lap 10 Bollinger took second from Arnold at the line.
Bollinger made quick work of reeling in Hershey and used the bottom of turns 3 and 4 to take the lead on lap 12.
Lapped traffic loomed in front of Bollinger at the half-way point of the race.
Cory Haas was working his way to the front of the field from his eighth starting spot. Haas was running fifth on lap 14.
Haas made it a three-car battle for third with Campbell and Arnold.
Bollinger was checked out from the rest of the field as plenty of battles for position waged on behind him. Haas tracked down Hershey for second and made the pass in turns 3 and 4 to take it with 10 laps to go.
Campbell followed and took third from Hershey as they raced down the back stretch on lap 22.
Brandon Rahmer by Hershey for fourth and brother Freddie Rahmer followed entering the top five with four laps to go.
Bollinger won his first career 410 feature by 2.814 seconds over Haas. Campbell crossed the line third. Freddie got by Brandon late in the race for fourth, with Brandon holding on to finish fifth.
Heat race winners in the 410 sprint division were Brie Hershey, Jordan Givler and Aaron Bollinger.
Alex Bright Wins in USAC East Coast’s Return to Lincoln
The USAC East Coast Sprint Cars made their first trip back to Lincoln since 2019 on Saturday night. The last time the series was at Lincoln, Steve Drevicki parked his car in victory lane.
Joey Amantea started on the pole of the 25-lap, $1,500 to win feature with Drevicki lined up to his outside.
Drevicki led the field into turn 1 on the initial start, but the yellow flag came out before a lap was completed. Colin White got spun around in turn 2.
The field lined up for a complete restart and this time Amantea and Drevicki raced wheel to wheel into turn 1 with Drevicki taking the lead coming out of turn 2.
Alex Bright got by Amantea for second and Chris Allen followed to take third.
The yellow flag waved again on lap 7 when Blaine Emery got turned around in turn 2.
Drevicki, Bright, Allen, Damon Pau and Kenny Miller were the top five for the restart.
Bright tried a slider in turns 3 and 4 for the lead but Drevicki held the top spot.
Paul got by Allen on the restart to take third.
Bright was searching for a way by Drevicki and dove under the leader again in turns 3 and 4 to try and take the lead. After the slider Drevicki and Bright were wheel-to-wheel at the line on lap 11 with Drevicki having the slight advantage.
As the top two continued to duke it out for the lead, Miller got by Allen for third.
Another slider by Bright on lap 14 in turns 3 and 4 did not stick. Four laps later the leader entered lapped traffic but that did not cool down the battle for the lead.
Bright was still searching for a way around Drevicki with five laps to go. The caution came out on lap 22 when Allen got turned around in turns 3 and 4.
Drevicki led Bright, Miller, Christian Bruno and Paul for the restart.
Drevicki held off Bright on the restart in turns 1 and 2 but Bright threw a slider in 3 and 4 and the two raced side-by-side at the line with two laps to go.
Bright took the lead on the inside coming out of turn 2 leaving Drevicki to fend off Miller. Miller got by Drevicki for second on the final lap in turn 2 but Drevicki took the spot back on the back stretch.
Bright took the checkered flag 1.111 seconds ahead of Drevicki. Miller finished third and Bruno crossed the line fourth. Paul completed the top five.
USAC heat race winners were Chris Allen, Alex Bright and Steve Drevicki.
Steve Buckwalter Wires Field for ARDC Midget Victory
Steve Buckwalter and Tommy Kunsman made up the front row of the ARDC Midget 20-lap feature.
Buckwalter took the lead when the green flag waved, but Joe Thomas and Mike Markey got spun around in turn 4 before a lap was in the books bringing out the caution flag.
The field lined up for a complete restart. Buckwalter took the lead again as Kunsman and Wanner battled for second behind him.
The yellow flag waved again on lap 1 when JR Booth got sideways on the inside of turn 4.
Buckwalter paced the field ahead of Kunsman, Brett Wanner, Jimmy Glenn and Kevin Woody.
Buckwalter held off Kunsman on the restart as Wanner and Glenn battled wheel to wheel behind them. Glenn took third at the line.
Woody, Markey and Eric Heydenreich had a three-car battle going for fifth. Woody had the spot and went to challenge Wanner for fourth. Wanner and Woody were wheel to wheel at the line on lap 7 with Woody holding the slight advantage.
Lap 8 saw another caution lap 8 when Markey got turned around in turn 2. He had been running sixth.
The top five for the restart were going to be Buckwalter, Kunsman, Glenn, Woody and Wanner but Wanner went to the pits during the caution and Woody was penalized two spots for driving under the cone on the last restart.
After the adjustments the top five for the restart were Buckwalter, Kunsman, Glenn Heydenreich and Zach Curtis.
The top three were nose to tail going into turn 1. After the penalty, Woody got back up to fifth on the restart and then got by Heydenreich in turns 3 and 4 for fourth.
Kunsman was searching the track for a way by Buckwalter and was on his bumper in the turns.
Buckwalter pulled away as the laps wound down leaving Kunsman to hold off Glenn who was challenging for second.
The top three were pulling away from the field when the caution came out with one lap to go when Thomas spun out in turn 2 right in front of the leaders.
Kunsman, Glenn, Woody and Markey lined up behind Buckwalter for the restart with one lap to go.
Buckwalter beat Kunsman to the checkered flag by .248 seconds. Glenn crossed the line third and Woody was fourth. Despite being caught up in two incidents during the feature, Markey rebounded for a fifth place finish.

Like Father, Like Son - Jared Esh Scores Popular Victory In Same Car as Father; Jason Covert, Devin Hart and Shawn Shoemaker Win in Late Model Competition.

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway – PORT ROYAL, Penn. (June 6, 2021) – Jared Esh capitalized on a front row startiing spot to score his second career Port Royal Speedway Weikert's Livestock 410 Sprint Car victory during Bobby Rahal Toyota of Lewistown night on Saturday.

The win was his first at the helm of the Golden Flavor Sesame Sticks No. 98 since taking over the reigns of the sprinter last season and achieved a personal goal for Esh in scoring a win in the same car his father Doug drove years ago to victory at the Juniata County oval as well.

"When I got in this car last season I made it a goal to get a win in this car as I don't know if any father and son have ever won races in the same car at the same track before," said Esh. "This is a pretty cool deal for me and I'm just really happy to be sitting in victory lane again."

Esh lined up on the front row alongside of Tyler Bear for the 25-lap feature and jumped out to the early lead over fourth-place starter Justin Whittall.

Sixth-place starter and early season winner Jeff Halligan was an early mover as he moved into the fourth position on lap two and two laps later he cracked the podium. One lap prior, track points leader and eigth-place starter Logan Wagner moved into the top-five.

Esh was setting sail on the field and was in heavy lapped traffic by lap 8. One lap later Halligan got by Whittall for the runner up spot and two laps later Wagner dispatched of Whittall for the third spot.

With 12 laps remaining, Esh held a neatly 3 second advantage over the field but as lapped cars battled in front of the leaders Halligan cut two seconds off the lead with 10 to go.

"I kept a good pace there in lapped traffic and I felt like we were checked out pretty good," said Esh. "I really just needed to stay in a rhythym and not give it away. I got in the fence there a couple times running the top and I was just trying to stay patient. They were going to have to slide me to get by me."

Esh was able to to put a few lapped cars in between him and Halligan, which allowed him to extend his advantage to nearly two seconds with six laps to go. However, the advantage was wiped out two laps later when Whittall, who was running fourth at the time, blew a tire on the frontstretch and brought out the caution.

Halligan tried a slider in turn's one and two on the restart, but Esh was too good on the top and drove away.He tried the move again in turn's three and four, but again Esh pulled away to lead the lap. One lap later the final caution of the event flew when Trenton Sheaffer got turned around in turn one.

Halligan again tried the bottom on the restart and the move opened the door for Wagner to pull alongside of him for the runner up spot down the backstretch. The battle for secone was just what Esh needed as he pulled away with ease.

Esh would go on to take the checkered flag by an dvantage of 2.430 seconds over Wagner, Halligan, Mike Wagner and Dylan Cisney.

"This has been about the most trying season of my career and we pulled out a new car ladt week and found some speed and ended up hitting the wall and my guys worked up to 2am last night to get this car ready to race," said Esh. "This means so much to me to see the hard work pay off and I just can't thank my guys enough for giving me the opportunity and helping to make this a reality."

For Wagner, it was another runner-up finish for the points leader and his third consecutive at the Speedway. Wagner has been a mark of consistancy this season with 10 total top-five finishes in 11 starts this season.

"I'm really happy for our Zemco team as it's always good to be on the podium and here standing on the frontstretch at the end of the night," said Wagner.

"Our car is so good right now, but ultimately Jared had the best car and we just needed to get up there earlier to have a shot at the win.”

Gerrard McIntyre, Tyler Reeser, Mike Walter II, Lucas Wolfe and Bear rounded out the top-ten.

Reeser earned the Valley Supply Hard Charger award by passing seven cars and 14th-place finish Tyler Walton earned the $1000 Warrior Award courtesy of J&S Fabrication by random draw as well.

Super Late Models

Jason Covert used a first turn slidejob to go from third to first and led all 25 lap to earn his fifth career River Valley Builders Super Late Model victory at the Port Royl Speedway.

"As bad as we've been the last year and a half, it;s so nice to be in victory lane," said Covert. "We've been struggling so much lately and it's just a relief to put a solid night together and get a win."

Jami Lathroum and Dan Stone led the field to the green flag and the two were side by siude exiting turn two. Third-place starter Covert pulled alongside both cars entering the backstretch and he slid up ahead of Stone to take the lead. Both cars made brief contact with Covert holding on to lead lap one.

Stone was all over Covert with 20 laps to go and fourth-place starter Jeff Rine had moved into the third position. Three laps later after multiple attempts, Stone took the lead by a nose at the line form Covert.

Covert stayed on the bottom of the track and didn;t divert from his plan and five laps later he took the lead back exiting turn four.

"Once Dan (Stone) got by me I knewq it was time to go and I needed to really get up on the wheel and get my tires hot," said Covert. "I didn;t really want to change what I was doing behind the wheel and I jut tiried to keep my tires straight and stay smooth."

Stone’s hopes for a win came to a close when he got into the outside guardrail exiting turn four and slowed in turn one with a right rear flat tire. That moved fifth-place starter Colton Flinner into the runner-up spot and again Covert jumped out to the lead at a return to gree-flag racing.

Covert stayed glued to the bottom of the speedway and rolled the middle in turn's three and four, while Flinner was ripping his patented outside line at both ends of the Speedway. Flinner stayed close enough that any mistake he could capitalize on, but Covert was consistent as they closed on lapped traffic.

Jeff Rine brought out the caution with eight to go as he came to a slow on the frontstretch. On the restart Flinner again tried the top, but it opened up the door for seventh-place starter Gary Stuhler to take the runner up spot. Flinner took the spot back a few laps later, but the battle enable Covert to cruise to the victory.

He crossed under the checkered flag by 2.016 seconds over Flinner, Stuhler, Dylan Yoder and Ross Robinson. Dillan Stake earned the hard charger presented by Geroge's Used Cars by advancing 10 positions to finish in sixth.

Jim Bernheisel, Lathroum, Nick Dickson and Marvin Winters completed the top ten.

"We've really just been off this year and that was about as good as we've felt car wise all season," said Covert. "We felt really good in warm ups and in the heat race and I knew if we stayed tue to the plan we were going to be tough to beat."

Limited Late Models

Devin Hart and Shawn Shoemaker earned a pair of 18-lap Selinsgrove Ford Limited Late Model feature wins as part of a twin 18's night for the divison. For Hart it was his fourth vistory of the season in what has been a dominant year in the divison for Hart, while Hart capitalized on a six-car invert for the second feature after finishing fifth in the first race.

Hart started eighth on the grid for the first feature and by lap two he was already up to second. With 10 laps to go, he was all over the leader, Jared Fulkroad, and the top three were under a blanket on the backstretch.

Two cars spun out right in front of the leaders to bring out the caution and set up an eight lap dash for the win.It only took one lap for Hart to dispatch of Fulkroad for the lead and he held on for the victory by .710 seconds at the line.

Fulkroad, Derick Garman, Kenny Yoder and Shoemaker filled out the top-five.Hart drew a number six to invert the second feature, which put Casey Steinhoff and Shoemaker on the front row for the second feature.

Shoemaker, who passed eight cars in the first feature, took no time in the second feature by going to the lead right away. He went on to lead all 18 laps to score the victory over Steinhoff, Hart, Yoder and Barry Miller.

Steinhoff was found to fail post-race inspection and was ultimately disqulified and forfeited his position as a result.

SHULTZ HOLDS OFF SMITH FOR FIRST KRAMER CUP VICTORY;
SWEIGART STORMS TO 305 SPRINT CAR FEATURE WIN;
 

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Jason Shultz of Carlisle became the fourth and final leader before taking the checkered flag in Saturday night’s exciting 25-lap United Racing Club Kramer Cup for 360 sprint cars.

The $2,573 win at the wheel of the Ritter Racing/Selinsgrove Ford No. 35 was his first in the Kramer Cup, third of the season in URC competition, and 22nd of his 358-360 racing career at the track.

Mark Smith of Sunbury, a five-time winner of the Kramer Cup, finished a close second in the race honoring the late track champion and Hall of Famer Kramer Williamson.

Nick Sweigart of Manheim wired the field for his victory in the 25-lap 305 sprint car main event.

Keith Bissinger of Orangeville became the first three-time roadrunner winner of the season in the division’s 12-lap main event.

Selinsgrove Speedway will present the 18th annual Joe Whitcomb Memorial for 360 sprint cars sanctioned by the Patriot Sprint Tour at 7 p.m. Saturday, June 12, plus limited late models and roadrunners on Advanced Concrete Systems/Eastern Museum of Motor Racing Night.

Polesitter Troy Betts out-raced front row starter Dallas Schott into the first turn for the early lead in the sprint car Kramer Cup. Schott chased Betts for the first lap until sixth-place starter Davie Franek stormed into second.

On the sixth circuit, Franek took the lead with an outside pass by Betts in turn two. The race’s first caution flag unfurled on lap nine for debri in the third turn. On the lap 10 restart, original eighth-place starter Mark Smith restarted in the third position and made a dive into the first turn to emerge the new race leader coming out of turn two.

At the halfway point, Smith led Franek, seventh-place starter Jason Shultz, Betts and fifth-place starter Derek Locke. A two-car tangle in turns three and four involving Ryan Stillwaggon and Dave Brown brought out the caution flag.

On the restart, Shultz carbon-copied Smith’s previous dive into turn one to take the race lead. While Shultz showed the way Smith kept him in his sights. In the final laps of the race, Smith closed in on Shultz in a last-ditch effort to reclaim the lead and take the win.

The final caution flag waved on lap 19, setting up a double-file restart with Shultz and Smith side-by-side. Shultz used his momentum to stay in front of the pack and take the checked flag by less than a second over Smith, Franek, Josh Weller, and Schott.

Front row starters Doug Dodson and Nick Sweigart see-sawed for the lead at the start of the 305 sprint car feature. The race was stopped on lap three when a multi-car tangle off the second turn blocked most of the track. On the ensuing restart, Derek Hauck flipped his sprint car in turn two. No driver injuries were reported in either incident.

Sweigart continued to set the pace when the race resumed with Dodson and fourth-place starter Austin Reed in pursuit. At the halfway point, Sweigart led with Reed advancing to second and ninth-place starter Ken Duke motoring into third.

Despite encountering slower traffic in the final laps of the race, Sweigart took the checkered flag in convincing fashion over Duke, Reed, Domenic Melair, and Garrett Bard.

Front row starter Nate Romig powered into the lead at the start of the roadrunner feature. Romig was chased by polesitter Tom Underwood for the first three laps until ninth-place starter Keith Bissinger horsepowered his way into the runner-up position.

At the halfway point, Bissinger made the winning pass using the inside lane coming off turn four as Romig tagged the fronstretch guardrail. Romig and third-place Curtis Lawton then dueled for the second spot.

Bissinger went the rest of the distance unchallenged and posted the win over Romig, Lawton, Terry Kramer, and Jake Jones.

Whittall Whips Williams Grove Sprints, Drevicki Battles For USAC East Win

6/4/21

Mechanicsburg – Justin Whittall of Vincentown, New Jersey, led from flag to flag to pick up the win in the 25-lap sprint car feature at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night.

Whittall pocketed $6,000 for the win including a $500 bonus from event sponsor H & N Landscaping.

It was his first ever Williams Grove Speedway win.

The 25-lap USAC East 360 sprint main went to Steve Drevicki after a furious late race charge by challengers Briggs Danner and Alex Bright.

Whittall started his No. 67 on the pole of the 410 sprint main and took control over Kyle Moody at the start.

The only caution flag of the race appeared with eight laps completed when the top wing on Dylan Norris’ machine collapsed, causing him to stop on the speedway.

Moody made an attempt to challenge Whittall on the restart but after a few laps, Whittall began steadily pulling away from the field, opening up a nearly two-second advantage by the halfway point.

Danny Dietrich started seventh in the field and was up to third at the halfway point.

Whittall continue to hold a nice lead until the five-to-go point when both Moody and Dietrich began to close as the leader bore down on the backmarkers.

With three laps to go both Moody and Dietrich were on the leaders tail and Dietrich nearly got by Moody for second with a low run through the fourth turn.

That triggered Moody to move down in the fourth corner as well for the final two laps and as the leaders headed to the checkers the Lewisberry driver nearly pulled off the late upset as he drew to Whittall’s inside down the frontchute.

However Whittall was able to race back to the line and edge ahead of Moody back to the checkers, taking his win by a scant .107 seconds.

“This is a dream come true right now,” Whittall said. “I figured they were catching me, but I held my own tonight. I started falling off when I saw the lapped cars. I started getting nervous.”

“ I didn’t know how big my lead was. I thought I could lay back a little and save my tires and fuel. Towards the end, I started hearing Kyle behind me. I knew I had to step my game up, but I pushed a little too hard.”

Dietrich crossed the finish line in third followed by Steve Buckwalter and Alan Krimes.

Sixth through 10th went to Lance Dewease, Doug Hammaker, Brandon Rahmer, Freddie Rahmer and TJ Stutts.

Heats went to Whittall and Brent Shearer.

Carmen Perigo Jr. led the first 14 laps of the USAC East sprint car main, followed early by Steve Buckwalter before Steve sixth starter Steve Drevicki took the spot away on lap three.

Perigo held and commanding lead during the early going but little by little Drevicki of Reading was able to bite into his advantage.

With 10 laps to go, Drevicki was able to take command as Perigo began slipping backward while Alex Bright, Kenny Miller and Briggs Danner started moving to the front.

Drevicki was forced to contend with lapped traffic all the way to the finish of the non-stop event and that gave his trio of challengers all the chances they needed to not only catch the leader but also to attempt to pass him.

The final five laps of the race were wild all the way to the finish with Danner eventually knocking Bright back to third while Drevicki worked the cushion.

Danner was all over Drevicki during the final two circuits, drawing even for the lead and taking it more than once only to see Drevicki reclaim the spot.

A tight finish found Drevicki holding off his pursuers by .193 seconds with Danner ending up second followed by Alex Bright, Perigo and Tommy Kunsman.

Drevicki also took a USAC East win at the track last season.

Heats went to Perigo, Buckwalter and Kunsman.

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY: A Motorsports Tradition for Generations

Selinsgrove Speedway’s grand motorsports tradition began July 20, 1946, when Bill Holland of Philadelphia won the first race. Since that historic day, Holland went on to win the 1949 Indy 500, and many of motorsports’ most famous drivers have turned laps at the iconic half-mile dirt track designed by legendary Hollywood stuntman and race car driver Joie Chitwood. The speedway, celebrating its momentous 75th anniversary in 2021, will continue its legacy of rip-roaring open wheel and stock car racing this season and for future generations!

Logan Wagner enters the weekend on top of the series standings with a 220-point advantage over second place Dylan Cisney in search of his fourth consecutive track championship. The elder Wagner, Mike, sits in third (-225) followed by Jeff Halligan (-340) and Anthon Macri (-500).

This weekend marks a return to the Speed Palace for the Super Late Models following a week absence. The World of Outlaws Dirt Late Model series were in town the last time they raced and it was Chris Madden sweeping the weekend and the $25,000 that came with it.

Delaware native Ross Robinson sits atop the series standings with a mere 5-point advantage over Dylan Yoder. Gary Stuhler (-65), Tyler Bare (-130) and Colton Flinner (-165) round out the top five. There have been seven different winners in the division in nine races this season, with none of them coming from the top-five drivers in the series standings.

This will be a unique event for the Limited Late Models as they participate in a regular handicapped show featuring a pair of 18-lap features. The winner of the first feature will draw either a 6, 8 or 10 to invert the lineup for the second 18-lap feature.

Devin Hart was the most recent feature winner at the Speedway and he has three total victories in the 2021 season along with a commanding 125-point lead in the series standings over Andrew Yoder. Derick Garman (-125), Shawn Shoemaker (-140) and Bob Dunn (-305) round out the top five.

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY: A Motorsports Tradition for Generations

Selinsgrove Speedway’s grand motorsports tradition began July 20, 1946, when Bill Holland of Philadelphia won the first race. Since that historic day, Holland went on to win the 1949 Indy 500, and many of motorsports’ most famous drivers have turned laps at the iconic half-mile dirt track designed by legendary Hollywood stuntman and race car driver Joie Chitwood. The speedway, celebrating its momentous 75th anniversary in 2021, will continue its legacy of rip-roaring open wheel and stock car racing this season and for future generations!

PORT ROYAL, Pa. (May 31, 2021) - It was a special day in Port Royal for Fayetteville, Pennsylvania’s Lance Dewease, as the National Sprint Car Hall of Famer not only secured the 2021 Bob Weikert Memorial title for a 42nd-career FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 victory, a 13th Series win at the Port Royal “Speed Palace,” but the pilot of the ever-familiar Kreitz Racing No. 69K accomplished his first All Star triumph of season on Davey Brown’s 87th birthday; one of Central Pennsylvania’s legendary mechanics and the head wrench for Kreitz Racing. Dewease scored a $29,000 payday for his efforts, as well as the coveted bull trophy.

Three-time Port Royal Speedway track champion, Logan Wagner, finished second on Monday evening, followed by leading All Star Circuit of Champions title contender, Tyler Courtney, a hard-charging Danny Dietrich, and Mike Wagner.

“He didn’t come to victory lane at my 100th victory at Williams Grove. He was there, but left, so I told him we had to win this so he could be in victory lane with me because that’s what it’s all about,” Lance Dewease said in Port Royal Speedway victory lane. “He is 87 years old. Just think about that. And he still works on this race car and he is the drive behind this race car, working to make it go as fast as it can. If I get to that age and have that level of desire and dedication, I’ll be happy.”

Although Dewease, who started from eighth on the grid via top-ten redraw, led the majority of the 30-lap program, his march to Bob Weikert Memorial victory lane was full of challenges, as well as a few lucky breaks. In fact, a caution on lap seven for a slowing Brent Marks initiated Dewease’s first challenge for the top spot. Marks, who started fourth, had just slid early race leader, Hunter Schuerenberg, for the lead, but hard contact with the turn one and two wall forced the “Myerstown Missile” to retire. The ensuing restart saw Dewease power to the front, utilizing the low line through turns three and four to take command before crossing back under the flagstand.

Meanwhile, Anthony Macri, a 2021 All Star winner at Bedford who started tenth on the Weikert lineup, was on the move, using a caution on lap 10 to power by two cars in a single circuit to claim second. Another caution on lap 12 allowed Macri to restart on the tailtank of the Hall of Famer.

Laps 15 through 20 resulted in an all-out war between Macri and Dewease. Attempting slider after slider, Macri eventually made a move stick, barely edging out Dewease in a drag race back to the start/finish line to complete lap 20. All momentum would halt the following lap, as a caution would set up an open red.

On the ensuing restart, Dewease charged back by Macri, utilizing the lowline through turns one and two to reclaim the point over the Dillsburg-native. Refusing to give up, Macri hounded Dewease yet again, returning to the cushion with hopes of powering around the Kreitz Racing entry. Unfortunately for Macri, massive contact with the turn three wall ended his efforts on lap 26; he would be forced to leave on the hook.

Without further challenges, Lance Dewease drove on to claim the five-figure payday.

“Anthony is really good here. He pounds the wall hard,” Lance Dewease continued. “He was going to have to really earn it to get back by me. I guess he hit the wall too many times. We were really good on restarts. I could get into the corner flat out. I knew Anthony wasn’t going to go down to block me. He probably thought he wasn’t going to have to worry about me.

“It’s great to be here racing in the sunshine. Port Royal does such a fantastic job. I’m just really happy to be here.”

The All Star Circuit of Champions will continue their 2021 campaign with a four-pack in the Midwest, kicking-off the long weekend with a visit to Fairbury American Legion Speedway in Fairbury, Illinois, on Thursday, June 3, followed by a Wisconsin tripleheader at Wilmot Raceway, Plymouth Dirt Track, and Angell Park Speedway on Friday through Sunday, June 4-6.

Abbottstown, PA (May 31, 2021) – It had been over a month since Freddie Rahmer last stood in victory lane at Lincoln Speedway. Since his win in April Rahmer had only finished outside the top five once. Despite the solid finishes Rahmer shows up every week wanting a win, “It feels really good to win again, it feels like it’s been a while” he shared in victory lane. Saturday night’s win was special as it was the Hank Gentzler Memorial. Gentzler was a staple in racing and his legacy continues on with the annual running of his memorial race. When asked in victory lane about Gentzler Rahmer said, ““He supported racing in a lot of different ways. I’ve never won this race before, so it was pretty cool to do that.” Freddie’s win was his 16th at Lincoln and ties him with Steve Kinser on the all-time win list.

Ryan Smith, the winner of the 2019 Hank Gentzler Memorial, started on the pole of the 35-lap feature.

Smith led the field into turn 1 with Aaron Bollinger, Freddie and Brandon Rahmer battling for position behind him.

Freddie drove to the outside of Bollinger coming out of turn 4 and took second at the line.

The first caution of the race came on lap 3 when Bollinger got turned around in turn 2. Bollinger had been running third and was able to rejoin the field.

Smith led Freddie, Brandon, Dylan Norris and Chad Trout to the cone for the single-file restart.

Freddie looked to the inside of Smith into turn 1 and took the lead coming out of turn 2. Trout was also on the move and got by Norris for fourth.

Brandon was working the bottom trying to reel in Smith for second. Brandon took the spot at the line on lap 9.

Freddie entered lapped traffic on lap 10.

As the leaders worked through heavy lapped traffic Trout was closing in on Smith for third as Smith was battling to take second back from Brandon. The three-car battle was put to a halt when the yellow flag waved on lap 20 for Bradley Howard who got spun around in turn 2.

The Rahmer brothers, Freddie and Brandon, paced the field ahead of Smith, Trout and Tyler Ross for the restart.

Smith and Trout raced side by side at the line on lap 22 with Trout having the slight advantage to take third. Smith took the spot back on the next lap. Ross entered the picture making it a three-car battle for third.

Smith created some distance and pulled away from Trout and Ross leaving them to duke it out for fourth.

Lapped traffic came back into play on lap 27. Lapped traffic did not slow Freddie down and he had a 2.446 second lead over Brandon with five laps to go.

Smith got by Brandon in lapped traffic for second on lap 31 and Trout followed on the next lap taking third.

Freddie got to the checkered flag 4.741 seconds ahead of Smith. Trout was closing in on Smith but ran out of laps and settled for third. Brandon crossed the line fourth and Ross completed the top five.

Brandon Rahmer, Ryan Smith and Dylan Norris each earned a $100 bonus for their heat race wins. Trey Hivner set quick time with a lap of 13.407 seconds earning him a $100 bonus. Another $100 bonus went to Tucker Klaasmeyer for winning the B-main. The $500 hard charger award went to Chase Dietz who advanced nine positions to finish eighth. Two $250 hard luck awards were given out with one going to Greg Plank and the other to Landon Price.

Next Saturday, June 5, Lincoln Speedway is back in action with 410 Sprint Cars, USAC East Coast Sprint Cars and ARDC Midgets. Racing starts at 7:30PM with pit gates opening at 5PM and grandstand gates opening at 5:30PM.

At Selinsgrove Speedway, Williamson’s lone championship was in 1978. His first win in a super sprint car at the track was on Sept. 3, 1973, and his last was on Aug. 10, 1981. He is tied with Barry Camp of Beavertown for the ninth spot on the track’s all-time win list for super sprint cars with 25 career victories.

During the latter part of his career, Williamson had been touring on the URC circuit. He scored a single URC win at Selinsgrove on July 8, 1995, which was the last time he won a race at his former home track. In all, Williamson recorded 67 career wins and three championships with URC.

Mark Smith of Sunbury has won five of the seven Kramer Cups, with victories in last year’s race along with checkered flags in 2014, 2016, 2017, and 2018. Robbie Stillwaggon of Burlington, N.J., scored the prestigious win in 2015 and Ryan Smith of Kunkletown was the 2019 winner.

Members of the Williamson family are expected to be in attendance with one of the Pink Panther No. 73 sprint cars on display at the track. Race fans and teams are invited to wear pink apparel to honor the memory of Williamson.

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY: A Motorsports Tradition for Generations

Selinsgrove Speedway’s grand motorsports tradition began July 20, 1946, when Bill Holland of Philadelphia won the first race. Since that historic day, Holland went on to win the 1949 Indy 500, and many of motorsports’ most famous drivers have turned laps at the iconic half-mile dirt track designed by legendary Hollywood stuntman and race car driver Joie Chitwood. The speedway, celebrating its momentous 75th anniversary in 2021, will continue its legacy of rip-roaring open wheel and stock car racing this season and for future generations!

Activities honoring Brown will take place in the infield from 5:45 to 7 pm.

Gates will open at 5:30 pm with race time set for 7:30.

Adult general admission for the May 28 racing program is set at $25 with students ages 13-20 admitted for just $10.

The All Stars will bring a contingent of challengers into Williams Grove for a mid-state tour led by point leader Ian Madsen.

While Madsen has yet to win this season, those behind him in the point standings certainly have, to include Tyler Courtney, Justin Peck, Kyle Reinhardt, Tony Stewart and others.

Stars Coming Out To Honor Legendary Mechanic Davey Brown Friday At Williams Grove

All Stars Circuit of Champions Sprints 10K to Win Brown Tribute Race slated!

Special pre-race ceremonies with Brown drivers, owners planned for infield prior to action

5/23/21

Mechanicsburg – The stars are lining up to come out and celebrate the career of 86-year old legendary mechanic Davey Brown Sr. coming up this Friday night, May 28 at Williams Grove Speedway when the oval hosts the All Stars Circuit of Champions Sprints $10,000-to-win Davey Brown Tribute Race.

Racing action on the track with the All Stars will begin at 7:30 pm but the pre-race action to honor Brown and his career will begin in the infield at 5:45with a special presentation planned for intermission.

Slated to be on hand for a one hour live Facebook broadcast on Beer Hill Gang TV and the meet and greet session starting at 5:45 are some of the sports biggest drivers, car owners and mechanics that have come to know and work with Brown best.

Elite sprint car and modified driver Billy Pauch, who wheeled the John Zemaitis No. 1 sprint car for Brown in the 1990s, has confirmed his attendance along with Zemaitis himself.

Racing brothers James and PJ Chesson are also slated to appear along with Lynn Paxton as drivers that worked Brown’s steering wheels during their careers spanning the 1970’s, 1980’s, 1990’s and 2000’s.

Others expected to be on hand include mechanics Dave Yingst and Lee Stauffer along with the sons of Bobby Gearhart Sr. and Bob Weikert.

Brown wrenched for driver Gearhart to much success in the 1960s and for owner Weikert with driver Doug Wolfgang in the 1980s when the sky was the limit for the legendary team.

More recently, Brown has been wrenching for Lance Dewease since 2016 and for driver/car owner Don Kreitz Jr. since 1999 and both men will be on hand to celebrate as well along with Dewease’s Kreitz-owned No. 69K machine until 6:30.

And, in celebration of Brown’s upcoming 87th birthday on May 31, fans are invited to help celebrate in the infield with free birthday cake beginning at 5:45.

Davey Brown Sr. began his racing career as a mechanic and a driver in jalopies along with his friend Johnny Mackison Sr. in 1953.

Brown soon dropped the driving career and went on to build engines, fabricate and turn wrenches for many of the sports elite drivers throughout history including but not limited to Johnny Mackison Sr., Bobby Gearhart Sr., Paul Pitzer, Toby Tobias, Mitch Smith, Kramer Williamson, Doug Wolfgang, Kenny Jacobs, Lynn Paxton, Cris Eash,. Billy Pauch, the Chesson brothers, Don Kreitz Jr. and Lance Dewease.

Perhaps only the great Karl Kinser commands the respect and notoriety that Brown does within the sprint car community and racing annals and it’s that contribution to the sport and his legacy that Williams Grove Speedway will honor this Friday.

Led by Ian Madsen, Cory Eliason, Justin Peck, Tyler Courtney and others, the All Stars Sprint Cars drivers will be out in full force to claim the Brown Tribute Race laurels and the cool 10K that will come with the 30-lap victory.

The holiday weekend kickoff racing special will be a “sprints only” racing program complete with a fireworks display.

Race time is set for 7:30 pm with gates opening at 5:30.

Adult general admission for the May 28 racing program is set at $25 with students ages 13-20 admitted for just $10.

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

CHASE DIETZ EDGES DIETRICH FOR FIRST WIN OF SEASON; Cody Fletcher Wires Field for Victory

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Saturday, May 29 (7:30PM) HANK GENTZLER MEMORIAL: 410 Sprints + 358 Sprints + Central PA Legends

Saturday, June 5 (7:30PM) 410 Sprints + USAC East Coast + ARDC Midgets

Saturday, June 12 (7:30PM) FALLEN FIREFIGHTERS NIGHT IN MEMORY OF BRANDON LITTLE: 410 Sprints (TT/$5,000 to win) + 358 Sprints plus Kids Night

Abbottstown, PA (May 22, 2021) – Chase Dietz had been knocking on victory lane’s door all season long. Going into Saturday night’s racing action Dietz had seven top 10 finishes, including two seconds, two thirds a fourth and a fifth. Dietz finally cashed in on the speed he and the Trone team have found this season with a late race pass for the win Saturday night.

Dietz spoke to the success the team has had in victory lane, “We’ve been good here about every race. We got a lot better tonight and were in the right spot at the right time.”

Billy Dietrich started on the front row and led the first 26 laps of the 30-lap feature. Dietz lined up ninth and ran down Dietrich in lapped traffic. “Billy was running a good race and I figured it was going to come down to the lapped cars,” said Dietz.

It was a close finish, with Dietz getting to the checkered flag .123 seconds ahead of Dietrich. Dietz knew it was going to be a close finish in the final turns, “Like the rest of them it came down to the end and we ended up on top.”

Dave Brown started on the pole. Dietrich and Tim Glatfelter raced three-wide with Brown at the start with Dietrich taking the lead and Glatfelter moving up to second. Landon Myers was running fourth and got under Brown for third in turns 1 and 2 on lap 2.

Dietz and Tyler Ross each took a side to get around Brown for fourth and fifth. Myers got by Glatfelter for second on lap 3. Glatfelter stayed close and was using the high line to try and take second back. Glatfelter took the runner-up spot back at the line on lap 6.

Dietz drove by Myers coming out of turn 2 for third on lap 9.

Dietrich had racked up a 2 second lead over Glatfelter and the rest of the field as he approached lapped traffic a third of the way through the race.

Dietz was reeling in Glatfelter to challenge for second when the caution came out on lap 12 for Aaron Bollinger who stopped on the front stretch.

Glatfelter, Dietz, Myers and Ross lined up behind Dietrich for the restart.

A four-car battle was on for second between Glatfelter, Dietz, Myers and Ross. Dietz won the battle and took second on lap 13. Glatfelter and Myers continued to battle for third. Ross fell back and was being challenged by Freddie Rahmer for fifth.

Myers got by Glatfelter to take the third spot back on lap 14. Ross challenged Glatfelter for fourth with Rahmer joining to make it a three-car battle. Rahmer tried a slider in turns 1 and 2 to get by both Ross and Glatfelter. Rahmer only managed to get by Glatfelter to move up to fifth.

Dietrich entered lapped traffic on lap 18 with Dietz closing in. Dietrich made quick work of the first lapped car and started to pull away, taking his lead back up to over one second. As the leaders worked through lapped traffic Dietz had whittled Dietrich’s lead back down to under a second.

Dietz took the lead at the line with three laps to go. Dietrich took the lead back in turns 1 and 2 with Dietz taking over the top spot down the back stretch.

A lapped car loomed ahead of Dietz when the white flag waved. Dietz got hung up behind the lapped car in turns 3 and 4 allowing Dietrich to make one last attempt for the win. Dietz won a close one over Dietrich with Rahmer crossing the line third. Ross finished fourth and Myers held on to finish fifth. Rahmer was the hard charger advancing 12 positions, from 15th to 3rd.

410 sprint heat race winners were Billy Dietrich, Troy Wagaman and Chase Dietz.

Cody Fletcher Wires Field for Victory

Hayden Miller and Cody Fletcher, both having wins under their belts already this season, shared the front row for the 20-lap feature on Saturday night.

Fletcher and Miller made contact in turn 1 on the initial start with Miller spinning and Fletcher continuing on. Miller was not the only one with issues in turns 1 and 2 at the start. Jon Stewart and Justice Forbes got together in turn 1. Bruce Garner was turned around in turn 1 and Brett Strickler was stopped coming out of turn 2. Kody Hartlaub sustained damage and headed to the pits for repairs.

Miller, Stewart, Garner, Strickler and Hartlaub rejoined the field for the complete restart.

Fletcher shared the front row with Matt Findley as the field lined up side by side.

Fletcher took the lead with Steve Owings driving by Findley to take second. Findley and Cappetta raced side by side for third with Cappetta taking the spot. Before the lap was completed the caution waved again. Tony Hippensteel, Kyle Rohrbaugh and Zachary Cool were all stopped in turn 4.

The field lined up for their third attempt at starting the race. The third time was a charm as Fletcher once again took the lead.

Owings went to the top but could not get by Findley this time for second in turns 1 and 2. Owings took the spot in turns 3 and 4.

It didn’t take long for Owings to track down Fletcher and the two raced wheel to wheel for the lead on lap 2. Fletcher held on to the top spot as the caution flag flew again. Garner was stopped on the inside of turn 4.

Owings ran the top looking to take the lead from Fletcher. When the top did not prove fruitful, Owings moved to the bottom of turns 3 and 4 nearly taking the lead at the line. Owings took the top spot on lap 6. Fletcher stayed close and took the lead back on lap 7.

The caution flag waved on lap 7 when Justin Foster fell off the pace on the front stretch.

Fletcher led Owings, Findley, Rohrbaugh and Adrian Shaffer to the cone for the restart.

Once again Owings went to the top while Fletcher stuck to the bottom. Owings got a good run coming out of turn 2 on lap 12 to reel Fletcher in, but Hartlaub brought out the caution in turn 1 before the lap was completed.

Another caution on the restart came when Garner and Hippensteel got spun around in turn 2.

The field got one lap in on the restart before yet another caution on lap 13. Garner, Strickler, David Holbrook, Hippensteel, Zach Euculano and Shane Yost got together in turn 4.

Yet again Fletcher held off Owings on the restart and yet again the yellow flag flew on lap 14. Garner spun out in turn 4. The yellow turned into an open red for teams to refuel.

Fletcher held off Owings on the restart and the field completed the final six laps incident free.

Fletcher took the checkered flag .645 seconds ahead of Owings. With his second place finish Owings captured the Trail-Way/Lincoln Shootout Championship. Findley finished third with Jeff Rohrbaugh crossing the line fourth. Shaffer completed the top five.

358 Sprint heat race winners were Steve Owings, Tyler Esh and Ashley Cappetta.

Next Saturday, May 29, Lincoln Speedway is back in action with the Hank Gentzler Memorial featuring the 410 Sprint Cars, 358 Sprint Cars and Central PA Legends. Racing starts at 7:30PM with pit gates opening at 5PM and grandstand gates opening at 5:30PM.

SELINSGROVE FANS TREATED TO FOUR FANTASTIC FINISHES:
BRIGHT, YODER, BARD & BISSINGER TAKE CHECKERED FLAGS

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – A packed pit area of race cars produced the most exciting finishes of Selinsgrove Speedway’s early 75th anniversary season Saturday night with Alex Bright of Collegeville making a thrilling late-race pass by Briggs Danner of Allentown to score the victory in the 25-lap USAC East Coast 360 wingless sprint car main event.

Andrew Yoder of Middleburg reeled in JR Toner of Bellefonte late in the 20-lap limited late model feature to record his second win of the season at Selinsgrove and 50th of his young late model racing career.

Garrett Bard of Wells Tannery passed Kenny Heffner of Watsontown with three laps to go in the 20-lap main event for his win in the PASS/IMCA 305 sprint car race.

Keith Bissinger of Orangeville held off several challenges for his second win of the season in the 12-lap roadrunner race.

Selinsgrove Speedway will host two Renegade Monster Truck Tour shows over the upcoming Memorial Day holiday weekend Saturday and Sunday, May 29-30. The Saturday show is sold out and tickets for the Sunday afternoon event can be purchased on monstersinselinsgrove.com.

The speedway’s next race is slated for 7 p.m. Saturday, June 5, featuring the United Racing Club 360 sprint cars in the Kramer Cup plus PASS/IMCA 305 sprint cars and roadrunners. Grandstand gates will open at 5 p.m.

Front-row starters Nash Ely and Briggs Danner brought the wingless sprint cars to the green flag in the main event with Danner pulling into the early lead. Alex Bright, who started fifth, advanced to third on the third circuit and then moved by fourth-place starter Kenny Miller for second on lap five.

Early in the race, Danner opened up a sizeable lead while the race for the top five positions intensified. The race’s first caution flag unfurled on lap 10 when Jason Cherry stopped in turn four. On the lap 11 restart, ninth-place starter Carmen Perigo showed some speed and challenged Bright for second to no avail.

At the halfway point, Danner led Bright, Perigo, third-place starter Mark Smith, and sixth-place starter Steve Drevicki. In the final 10 laps of the race, Bright had Danner in his sights in lapped traffic. While Danner raced the inside line, Bright stormed around the top the race track.

The second and final caution flag waved on lap 22 for Colby Womer in turn two. On the restart with three laps to go, Bright made a dive to the inside of turn one and pulled off a thrilling slider by Danner to take the lead. Danner tried to return the slider in turns three and four but Bright outraced him.

At the finish, Bright was victorious by a mere one-second margin of victory over Danner, Perigo, Smith, and Miller.

Polesitter JR Toner beat out front row starter Drew Weisser for the early lead in the limited late model feature. Toner led Weisser for the first two laps until fifth-place starter Jared Fulkroad battled into the runner-up position.

Eighth-place starter Andrew Yoder quickly made his way into the top five and took over the third spot from sixth-place starter Todd Snook on the seventh lap. At the halfway point, Fulkroad was in striking distance of Toner.

Yoder powered into the second spot on the 14th lap as last week’s winner and 15th-place starter Devin Hart raced into the top five. On a lap 17 restart, Yoder made the winning pass in turns three and four and went on to post a 1.8-second margin of victory over Snook, Hart, third-place starter Casey Steinhoff, and Fulkroad.

In the 305 sprint car feature, second-place starter Kenny Heffner stormed into the early lead with fourth-place starter Austin Reed in pursuit. On a lap three restart, sixth-place starter Garrett Bard drove into the third position.

At the completion of lap five, Heffner was leading Bard, Reed, 10th-place starter Ken Duke, and original polesitter John Walp. On a lap 11 restart, Bard put in a bid for the lead but Heffner held control. Through most of the event, the top five drivers raced under a blanket.

Late in the race, Bard was tormenting Heffner for the lead and with two laps remaining made the winning pass using the inside lane off turn four. Bard went on to take the checkered flag by just .73 of a second over Heffner, Duke, Reed and sixth-place starter George Riden.

Front row starters Keith Bissinger and Smith Cope dueled for the lead at the start of the roadrunner race. While Bissinger edged out Cope for the front spot for the flag-to-flag victory he was closely followed for all 12 laps.

Fourth-place starter Curtis Lawton was Bissinger’s most serious challenger as Cope, sixth-place starter Nate Romig, and third-place starter Adam Campbell competed in the top five.

Jake Jones, who originally started 10th, moved into contention late in the race after an altercation earlier in the event. At one point, Jones challenged Lawton for the second spot. At the checkered flag, Bissinger held on for his second win of the season over Lawton, Jones, Campbell and 14th-place starter Brad Mitch.

Dewease Dominates For Williams Grove 100th Sprint Win

Locke goes 3 for 3on the season in 358s

5/21/21

Mechanicsburg – Lance Dewease dominated at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night to score his unprecedented 100th career oval sprint car victory, a goal he never really thought about until just the last few seasons after becoming the track’s all-time win leader.

“It’s a number that this speedways never seen,” he said.

“I just thought if I could race long enough I could get here. I love racing at this place, I always have.”

And he got there in style after starting fourth in the 25-lap feature and jetting into the lead in the second corner after the green flag came out.

With one swoop through the middle in turn one and then to the outside in the second corner, Dewease swept his No. 69K past front row starters Jeff Halligan and Danny Dietrich.

After being scored the leader, Dewease had to deal with six restarts thanks to numerous cautions that plagued the first 12 circuits of the race.

Dietrich tried a slider for control on a lap eight restart and got alongside the leader but Dewease held his ground and maintained control.

And then when Dietrich tried it again on a lap 12 restart, Dewease made sure to hold him down low as the pair set their cars into the first corner, preventing his challenger from setting up another attempted flyer.

During the second half, non-stop part of the feature, Dewease poured on the speed and blasted to more than a straightaway advantage before entering lapped traffic with four laps to go.

The traffic forced Dewease to back down on his pace before taking the win by .912 seconds over Dietrich and Jeff Halligan.

“My old body don’t like sittin’ in that seat that long, my back hurts,” Dewease said of the lengthy event and enduring all the restarts.

“We’re not done, we’re just getting’ started,” he said when asked about reaching the 100 Williams Grove win milestone.

With the win, Dewease took the season point lead in the chase for the track title.

It was the Fayetteville drivers first victory at the oval since scoring his 99th on June 26 of last season.

Dewease won for the very first time at Williams Grove Speedway in the Mitch Smith Memorial on July 10, 1992 while wheeling the Walt Dyer Masonry No. 461 sprinter.

Alan Krimes finished fourth in the main event followed by Devon Borden, who was as high as third at one point.

Sixth through 10th went to Brad Howard, Landon Myers, Brandon Rahmer, Dylan Norris and Kyle Moody.

Heats went to Halligan, Dietrich and Howard.

Derek Locke led all 20 laps of the 358 sprint main to continue his domination of the class at the track this season.

Lock has now won all three events contested at the track this season, pushing his career win total at Williams Grove to six.

Chad Criswell followed Locke to the finish followed by Brett Wanner, Kyle Denmyer and Chris Frank.

Sixth through 10th went to Cody Fletcher, Colby Womer, Tyler Brehm, John Stehman and Matt Findley.

Heats went to Locke, Criswell and Wanner.

Aaron Reutzel Claims 15K Williams Grove World Of Outlaws Morgan Cup

5/15/21

Mechanicsburg – Aaron Reutzel of Clute, Texas, swept to the $15,000 World of Outlaws sprint car victory in the running of the Morgan Cup at Williams Grove Speedway on Saturday night.

At the wheel of the Dennis Roth-owned No. 83, Reutzel would lead all 30 laps of the contest from the pole although both Gio Scelzi and Lance Dewease would make their presence known.

The pair of Reutzel and Scelzi share the front row for the start of the sprint car main with Reutzel jetting out from the inside pin to take control when action began.

Meanwhile, after starting 10th, Dewease stormed forward to fifth on the first circuit before taking fourth from Anthony Macri on the third lap.

With Reutzel in command, the race entered the backmarkers on the eighth tour and it would run the remaining 22 laps with the leaders working the at times challenging traffic.

By the halfway point, Dewease was challenging Kerry Madsen for third before finally taking the spot with 13 laps to go.

This then set up the front trio of Reutzel, Scelzi and Dewease to fight out the race to the finish.

With 10 laps go to it was clear that Reutzel was beginning to struggle with the lapped cars as he worked the outside and that was the chance that both Scelzi and Dewease were waiting for.

Scelzi got the closest to Reutzel during the closing laps but traffic would prove very tough to tame for all three men, especially for Dewease who found a slow car repeatedly racing just in front and preventing him from hitting his marks in the corners.

But the traffic did end up helping Reutzel during the final few laps when he was able to surmise that the bottom lane had come in after the lappers began getting harder to pass.

This gave the signal to Reutzel to move down on the track and take the bottom lane instead of his favored cushion line, ultimately preserving the lead and win while Scelzi and Dewease continued to labor to clear the slower cars.

“I was going by lapped cars pretty easy up there,” Reutzel said of his top groove success during the early and mid stages before making his decision to drop low late in the event.

“It’s good to be in lapped traffic and judge your speed off of the lapped cars,” he said, noting that when he saw the lapped cars keeping his pace it was then that he decided to drop to the bottom groove.

Reutzel took the win, the fourth overall of his career at the track, by 2.190 seconds over Scelzi.

It was also his second of the year on the outlaws tour.

Dewease crossed the line in third, also claiming the hard charger laurels.

Antohny Macri and Madsen rounded out the top five.

Sixth through 10th went to Kyle Larson, James McFadden, Donny Schatz, Logan Schuchart and TJ Stutts.

Heats went to McFadden, Macri, Reutzel and Larson with Ryan Smith scoring the B Main and Reutzel taking the dash to earn the pole position.

Overall fast time was set by Fresno, California’s Scelzi with a lap of 17.624 seconds.

Macedo Holds Off Dewease For Outlaws Win At Williams Grove Friday

5/14/21

Mechanicsburg – Carson Macedo held off Lance Dewease to pick up the $10,000 win in Friday night’s World of Outlaws sprint car feature at Williams Grove Speedway.

But Macedo was holding on for dear life at the finish to record his second career oval win.

“I never thought I’d win an outlaw show here,” Macedo said after the checkers.

And Dewease did all he could to see that Macedo wouldn’t but it just wasn’t quite enough.

The pair started the 25-lap main on the front row with Macedo on the inside pin and when action began it was Macedo getting the jump on Dewease as eighth starter Brent Marks bolted up to fourth on just the first lap.

The leaders entered the rear of the field on lap seven and that allowed Dewease to close the gap on Macedo and by lap 10 Macedo had his Jason Johnson No. 41 just under a straightaway ahead.

With Dewease in search of his 100th career oval victory, the pressure was on both drivers at the front and tied up in traffic, Fayetteville’s Dewease took his first shot at Macedo on lap 14.

Dewease drew even with the leader in the second turn, drawing to his inside, but Macedo’s momentum carried him off of the corner with control as Dewease fell back in line.

During the mid-stages, Macedo was able to pull back away from his challenger but as the laps wore down, Dewease again started closing in thanks to some massive blasts into the third turn that helped slice down the advantage.

And by the time that the white flag flashed over the field, Dewease was ready to pull a last turn upset and it nearly worked.

As the pair set their mounts into the third turn, Dewease shot in low once again and blasted across the bottom lane as he tried to dig into the lead.

The move failed however although the pair raced out to the wall before Macedo edged ahead, maintaining his control back to the checkers.

“I honestly thought when we went into three, I thought I was going to get in front of him but when we went in I clipped the berm on the bottom and it shot the nose across the track or I think I could have been in front of him,” Dewease said of his last ditch, final turn shot at taking the win.

Macedo said he was struggling the longer the race wore on.

“At the end I didn’t know where to be,” he said.

“It seemed like the harder I drove, the slower I went.”

Macedo’s margin of victory was .361 seconds.

The Lemoore, California, driver won the season opener at the track in 2020.

Marks got by James McFadden to ride home third with McFadden in fourth and Aaron Reutzel completing the top five.

Sixth through 10th went to Kerry Madsen, David Gravel, Donny Schatz, Sheldon Haudenschild and Kyle Larson.

Heats went to Dewease, Madsen, Macedo and Reutzel with Kraig Kinser taking the B Main.

Macedo won the dash to earn the pole for the feature event.

Fast time was set by Sheldon Haudenschild with a lap of 16.599 seconds.

Abbottstown, PA (May 12, 2021) – The 2021 battle between the PA Posse and the World of Outlaws kicked-off at Lincoln Speedway Wednesday night with the Gettysburg Clash. The most exciting rivalry in sprint car racing did not disappoint in front of a packed house in the pigeon hills. Despite starting on the front row of the 35-lap feature, it was not an easy path to victory for Brad Sweet. Sweet settled in behind Donny Schatz on the start and fell back to third mid-race before avoiding a miscue by a lapped car that held up the leader, Brent Marks. Sweet’s victory was his first at Lincoln.

Looking to score his 300th World of Outlaws win, Donny Schatz started on the pole for the Gettysburg Clash. Sweet made it an all-Outlaw front row. Lance Dewease and Anthony Macri represented the PA Posse in row 2.

Schatz had the advantage over Sweet going into turn 1. Sweet had to hold off Dewease who was challenging for second. Sweet pulled away leaving Dewease to fend off a charge by Macri for third. Macri took the spot before the red flag came out on lap 3 for Chad Trout.

Schatz elected to restart on the inside for the double-file restart. Robbie Kendall spun in turn 2 bringing out the yellow on the restart.

The field lined-up single file behind Schatz for the restart. Schatz got a good jump on the start. Dewease raced side-by-side with Marci to get third back. Macri had his sights set on Sweet for second though. Sweet moved up the track to use the high side to keep Macri at bay and Dewease used the bottom in turns 3 and 4 to get back by Macri for third. As Dewease was reeling in Sweet smoke started to pour out of the blue and orange #69K. Dewease stopped on the track bringing out the yellow flag on lap 8.

Once again Schatz elected to restart on the inside. Carson Macedo made a move to get by Marci on the restart and Brent Marks made a charge to the front of the field as well. Macri got back by Macedo and Marks before the caution came out to hold onto third. The lap 9 caution was for Jacob Allen.

Macri looked to the inside of Sweet for second as Marks got by both of them to move into third. Sweet reeled in Schatz to take the lead coming out turn 4 on lap 12. Schatz battled back to take the lead back at the line on lap 13.

Lapped traffic loomed ahead of the leaders at the half-way point of the race. The top three, Schatz, Sweet and Marks, were racing under a blanket for the lead as they caught the tail end of the field.

Marks took second from Sweet coming out of turn 2 and quickly went to work on Schatz in traffic for the lead. He took the top spot with ten laps to go. Schatz stayed close and battled hard with Marks to try and get the lead back to score his 300th Outlaw win. As Sweet was looking to take second from Schatz, a lapped car bobbled in front of Marks. Marks avoided the lapped car, but in doing so fell back to fourth. Sweet took advantage of the situation and darted to the lead ahead of both Schatz and Marks. Macri also capitalized on the situation, making his way to second.

Marks charged back to the front of the field as the laps wound down and was back to second with three laps to go. Marks reeled in Sweet using the bottom but ran out of time to reclaim the lead.

Sweet claimed his first Lincoln Speedway win .251 seconds ahead of Marks. Macri finished third and David Gravel crossed the line fourth. Schatz completed the top five.

Sweet might have had the second-best car but as he shared in victory lane, “A wins a win, especially in Central Pennsylvania.” Receiving both cheers and jeers from the crowd Sweet also had this to say after his Outlaw win, “That’s what it’s all about it’s about these crowds, putting on a show for these fans we appreciate them whether they’re cheering or booing.”

Lincoln Speedway is back in action on Saturday, May 22 with Motosports Night featuring 410 Sprints and 358 Sprints (night #2 of Trail-Way/Lincoln “Shootout”), plus York Flooring Kids Big Wheel Races. Racing starts at 7:30PM with pit gates opening at 5PM and grandstand gates opening at 5:30PM.

Stutts’ win was his first 410 victory at Lincoln, he has three wins in the 358 division at the track.

Macri got fourth back from Rahmer but Rahmer took the spot back at the line. Macri and Rahmer continued to battle as the two swapped positions multiple times each lap.

Stutts was pulling away from Dietz and the rest of the field as he caught lapped traffic again with seven laps to go.

The battle for fourth and fifth between Rahmer and Macri was still hot as the laps wound down.

Dietz closed in on Stutts with two laps to go. Dietz was all over Stutts on the last lap and gave it all he had as they raced to the checkered flag. Stutts crossed the line .064 ahead of Dietz. Krimes finished third. Rahmer got back by Macri one last time to take fourth by .001 seconds at the line.

Stutts’ win was his first in the 410 division since 2019 and he shared in victory lane, “If you would have asked me two week ago, I was ready to retire and put someone else in.” Next up at Lincoln is the first round of the PA Posse vs. World of Outlaws battle in the Gettysburg Clash on Wednesday.

World Of Outlaws Morgan Cup This Weekend At Williams Grove Speedway

Sweet, Gravel, Reutzel & Marks Enter As Favorites In May 14/15 Action

5/9/21

Mechanicsburg – The World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Cars Series is set to assault Williams Grove Speedway coming up this weekend, Friday and Saturday, May 14 and 15 for the running of the Morgan Cup.

Slated for May 14 and 15 at 7:30 pm each night, H & N Landscaping of Mechanicsburg will present the two-day outlaws stand at Williams Grove.

Adult general admission for each night of the Williams Grove outlaws stand is set at $30 with youth ages 13 –20 admitted for $15.

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

Both of the weekend’s racing programs will pay $10,000 to win with Friday’s main event going 25 laps while the Saturday feature will go for 30.

Saturday’s winner will receive an additional 5K to be declared the 2021 Morgan Cup Champion to go along with bragging rights as Morgan Cup Champion for a year of either the World of Outlaws series stars or those of the Pennsylvania Posse.

Outlaws champion Brad Sweet continues to control the World of Outlaws season point standings as he vies for his third series title in a row at the wheel of Kasey Kahne’s No. 49.

California’s Sweet has pushed his season win total to eight wins on the outlaws season to date including just sweeping three events in a row in the state of Missouri.

Clearly with the point lead and his early season win percentage having won eight of a total 20 races fought on the series tour so far this season, Sweet has to be viewed as a favorite coming into this weeks Williams Grove Morgan Cup action.

However Sweet has yet to master the Williams Grove paper clip oval in his accomplished career and while this trip into Posse country may prove to be the one when he finally breaks through, his outlaws nemesis David Gravel will enter the weekend as a favorite.

Connecticut’s Gravel has really taken a liking to Williams Grove during the last few seasons and indeed scored two of four events held at the track last season while also taking a pair in 2019.

The two-time Williams Grove National Open champion has three wins on the outlaws tour this season and currently sits second to Sweet in the point standings aboard Todd Quiring’s Big Game Motorsports No. 2.

Additional drivers to score on the outlaws tour to date this season include Sheldon Haudenschild, Logan Schuchart, James McFadden, Carson Macedo, Aaron Reutzel and Brent Marks.

Reutzel, aboard the Roth No. 83, may also be one to watch with the outlaws when he gets back to Williams Grove as the Texas native has really learned his way around the big half-mile in recent seasons as well.

With one win on the Williams Grove season, Freddie Rahmer is the current oval point leader.

Perennial outlaws killer at Williams Grove, posse pilot Lance Dewease seems poised to score his elusive 100th career speedway win and nothing would please the Fayetteville flyer more than to do so over the outlaws big dogs this weekend.

Other members of the Pennsylvania Posse poised to make a run at the outlaws this weekend include Anthony Macri, Brent Marks and Danny Dietrich.

Marks, who recently moved back into the seat of his family-owned No. 19M, has proven to be on a hot streak of late, scoring three of six since returning to the car.

He’s won against the outlaws on the road at Eldora on Saturday and against the Posse here in the region and may indeed be the best bet for a local driver to get a win at Williams Grove this weekend.

A premier residential and commercial landscaping company in the region, H & N Landscaping will present the entire weekend of World of Outlaws/Pennsylvania Posse racing action.

H & N Landscaping, located at 675 Williams Grove Road in Mechanicsburg, has been serving the region for over 35 years.

Diamond Series Outlaws Tune Up This Week At Williams Grove With 6K To Win

Macri and Marks will use race to prepare, 358 sprints also in action

5/2/21

Mechanicsburg – Williams Grove Speedway will allow the sprint car teams to prepare for next week’s World of Outlaws invasion coming up this Friday night, May 7 at 7:30 pm when it hosts a Hoosier Diamond Series World of Outlaws Tune Up event.

The special tune up for the Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint cars will pay $6,000 to the 25-lap winner with time trials setting the heat lineups.

May 7 will be VP Racing Fuels Night at the track with the HJ Towing and Recovery 358 sprint cars also on the racing program for their third race of the young season.

Gates will open at 5:30 pm.

Adult general admission for the May 7 racing program is set at $20 with students ages 13-20 admitted for just $10.

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

So far this season at Williams Grove Speedway no driver has been able to repeat in 410 sprint car action while Derek Locke has copped both 358 sprint main events contested.

The $6,000 top prize for the sprint cars on Friday night is sure to be very attractive to the Williams Grove teams as they prepare for the outlaws next week.

Anthony Macri and Brent Marks are surely top contenders to park in victory lane in the tune up race and when the outlaws show up the next week.

Macri of Dillsburg will use the event to work on his qualifying game for the May 14/15 outlaws stand.

“We use the tune ups for practicing time trials because with WoO shows time trials are everything and it sets the tone for the rest of the night,” Macri says.

“Time trial good and you have a shot at a win but not time trial well and it feels like you’re digging yourself out of a hole for the rest of the night.”

Marks of Myerstown says the tune up race benefits all the locals.

“We use the tune up and treat it like any other World of Outlaw race. It’s nice for the local guys to run their format and just get that extra week to get comfortable with how the program runs,” Marks says.

Advanced reserved seat tickets for all 2021 Williams Grove Speedway and the NOS Energy Drink World of Outlaws Sprint Cars Series events are available exclusively through the NOS Energy Drink World of Outlaws.

Fans who wish to obtain any reserved seats for any of the six outlaws events at the track in 2021 can purchase tickets via the official outlaws official website located at www.worldofoutlaws.com/tix or by calling 1.844.DIRT.TIX.

Anthony Macri Holds on For Second Port Royal Win of the Season; Eckert and Grube Get First Wins of 2021

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Penn. (May 2, 2021)- Anthony Macri charged forward from the sixth starting spot and held off a hard charging Brent Marks to earn his second victory of the season at Port Royal Speedway.

"I knew it was between me, Brent and Lance and whoever got out front was probably going to win it," said Macri. "We didn’t have the best car and I really had to adjust me driving to keep the pace up."

Michael Walter and Jeff Miller led the field to the green flag of the 25-lap Weikert's Livestock 410 Sprint Car event and it was Walter getting out to the early lead as he slipped around Miller exiting turn two to lead the first circuit.

Meanwhile, Macri was on the move early as he went form sixth to third on the opening lap. One lap later Macri made everyone in attendance rise to their feet as he cut through the middle of Walter and Miller exiting turn two with a daring move to take the lead.

"I knew those guys were going to wear each other trying to get the lead as everyone wants to win when you start up there," he said. "It was a bit aggressive, but I had to get there and start building a lead as I knew those other guys would be back there."

Marks, who started fourth, moved into third on the following lap and after a multi-lap battle with Miller he took over the runner-up spot on lap five.

Two laps later, Macri was in heavy lapped traffic and on the same circuit eight starter Lance Dewease moved into a podium spot past Miller. Macri was cruising through the lappers with ease and held nearly a 3.5 second advantage over Marks when the red flag came out for a crash involving Miller in turn two.

Miller rode the outside guardrail all the way to the exit of the turn and put a small hole in the fence before flipping wildly and briefly catching fire. He was able to escape with no injuries, but the break allowed Marks the opportunity to close in and make his move.

Using the extreme high side, Macri jumped out to the lead when the field returned to green, while Dewease poked his nose under Marks for the runner-up spot. Marks rocketed back by on the outside and began to plot his move for the lead. Meanwhile, series points leader Logan Wagner was up form seventh to fourth and closing fast.

With seven laps remaining, Macri was again in heavy lapped traffic and this time Marks was within striking distance. With five laps to go Marks was all over the leader's tail-tank and with three laps to go he was set to pull a slider entering turn one for the lead when he had to get off the gas to avoid a lapper, which allowed Macri the momentum to pull away.

That was all Macri needed to cruise home for the win and he took the checkered flag by an advantage of 1.2 over Marks. Dewease, Wagner and Ryan Smith filled out the top-five. Dylan Cisney, Jeff Halligan, Mike Wagner, Walter and Gerard McIntyre rounded out the top-ten. Halligan earned the night's $300 hard charger courtesy of Valley Supply and LandPro Equipment of Mifflintown by advancing 13 positions. He also scored the random draw J &S Fabrication Warrior Award worth $1000 with the finishing number of 7.

"I was struggling really bad and I was worrying myself as I could hear back there," said Macri of Marks. "Going down the frontstretch I seen Brent show his nose and I knew I had to make something happen. I split those two cars getting into one and two and after that I drove as hard as I could without blazing the tires off it."

For Marks, he knew his best chance was late in the race and felt his car got better after the red flag.

"Once we got into lapped traffic I was starting to run him down and I could see him getting closer and closer," said Marks. "We got that red flag and I made a few adjustments and it helped me out a little. I was trying to use that lapped car as a pinch for him, but and he cleared that and it just didn't work out for me. All in all it was a good run for us."

410 Sprint Car Feature Finish, 25 Laps: 1. Anthony Macri; 2. Brent Marks; 3. Lance Dewease; 4. Logan Wagner; 5. Ryan Smith; 6. Dylan Cisney; 7. Jeff Halligan; 8. Mike Wagner; 9. Mike Walter II; 10. Gerard McIntyre Jr.; 11. Jared Esh; 12. A.J. Flick; 13. Justin Whittall; 14. Kerry Madsen; 15. Tyler Bear; 16. Trenton Sheaffer; 17. Curt Stroup; 18. Tyler Reeser; 19. Kody Lehman; 20. Jeff Miller.

Super Late Models

Rick Eckert capitalized on a front row starting position to earn his 11th career Port Royal Speedway River Valley Builders Super Late Model feature win. The win came after the series participated in dual heats earlier in the night with earned passing points.

" I don't think we had the best car, but we definitely had the best starting spot," said Eckert. "We've been working hard here all year and we keep getting better and hopefully this is the first of many wins this year."

Dan Stone and Eckert led the field to the field to the green flag and Eckert jumped out to early lead. Fourth starter Gary Stuhler moved into the runner-up position and set his eyes on the lead. Eckert found himself buried in lapped traffic with 13 laps to go and one lap later Stuhler was all over his rear-end for the lead.

With 10 laps to go, the top-five were all under a blanket and entering turn three Stuhler was primed to take the lead when Stone and fourth-place runner Colton Flinner got collected and brought out the caution.

Third-place starter Ross Robinson moved into the runner-up position on the restart and 15th starter Dylan Yoder moved into the third spot the following lap.

A pair of cautions halted action over the next several laps with the final one occurring with five-to-go. Over the final five circuits, Robinson was all over Eckert for the point. Robinson stayed glued to the bottom, while Eckert drove his car hard into the turn and drifted towards the top to gain the momentum.

Robinson was better in turn's one and two while Eckert was stronger at the other end of the track. The two battled side by side for the final laps, but Eckert was able to hold on to take the win byb.565 seconds at the checkered flag.

Robinson, Yoder, Tyler Bare and Stuhler rounded out the top-five while Jeff Rine, Marvin Winters, Austin Berry, Jason Covert and Hayes Mattern completed the top-ten. Yoder earned the $300 hard charger courtesy of George's Used Cars and LandPro by advancing 12 positions.

"If he was going to keep running that thing so hard on the bottom, I was going to run it just as hard on the top," said Eckert. "That was really the only thing I could do. I just kept going higher and harder and I guess I was doing my best Macri impression banging the board. I'm thankful to finally get that monkey off my back and get a win."

For Robinson, it was another runner-up position in search of his first victory at the Speedway.

"I want to win at this place so badly and we're so dang close that I can taste it," he said. "I felt like we were better entering the turn's, but he just kept getting stronger off the top exiting and that was the name of the game."

PA Sprint Series 305 Sprint Cars

Dave was the man to beat during a three car battle with Ken Duke Jr. and Kenny Heffer and he earned his second career Penns Valley Meat Market PA Sprint Series 305 Sprint Car victory at Port Royal Speedway Saturday night.

Grube and Duke shared the front row and it was Grube getting the early jump on the field using the high line of the Spedway. Duke was all over the leader in the early goings of the race, but the caution flew with 12 laps to go for a slowing Kassidy Kreitz.

Third-place starter Kenny Heffer lasted around the top of Duke on the restart and he set his sights on Grube for the lead. With nine to go Heffner made contact with the outside guardrail in turn four trying to get around Grube and opened the door again for Duke.

The three swapped positions multiple time over the next five laps and with four to go it appeared Heffner was destined to take the point when he and Grube made contact on the backstretch. Heffner saved the car and fell to third, while Duke capitalized to gain on first.

Grube would hold on for the final remaining laps to score the victory by an advantage of .970 seconds over Duke, Heffner, Devin Adams and Justin Mills. Garrett Bard earned the hard charger award by finishing in sixth from 17th followed by Drew Young, Erin Statler, Austin Reed and Dakota Schweikart.

"We were kind of set up to run the top and I ended up getting into the 97 car there which was unfortunate," said Grube. "I was just trying to hold my line as good as I could and it happened. This team has been so fast lately and we needed this win. I'm so happy for my guys."

305 Sprint Car Feature Finish, 20 Laps: 1. Dave Grube; 2. Ken Duke Jr.; 3. Kenny Heffner; 4. Devin Adams; 5. Justin Mills; 6. Garrett Bard; 7. Drew Young; 8. Erin Statler; 9. Austin Reed; 10.

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – In only his second race back behind the wheel of his own sprint car, Brent Marks of Myerstown scored a convincing victory in Sunday night’s 30-lap Ray Tilley Classic for 410 sprint cars at Selinsgrove Speedway.

Marks first won the Tilley Classic in 2013 and became the first repeat winner of the event held in honor of the speedway’s all-time career leading sprint car winner on Icon Legacy Custom Modular Homes Night. He earned $5,088 for the win in the No. 19M in the first race of the season for the Lelands.com 410 sprint cars.

Danny Dietrich of Gettysburg was the Fast Tees Fast Qualifier with a lap time of 16.692.

Dan Stone of Thompson dueled with Andrew Yoder of Selinsgrove for the first half of the 25-lap super late model feature before driving to his first victory of the season and eight career at Selinsgrove worth $3,000.

Polesitter Anthony Macri pulled into the lead at the start of the 410 sprint car feature. Macri was chased by second-place starter Brent Marks and third-place starter Danny Dietrich.

By lap six, Marks began to pressure Macri for the lead and exchanged the front spot several times with sliders through the turns. On the eighth lap, Marks took the lead with an inside pass in turn three.

At the halfway point, Dietrich got by Macri for second in turn two. With 10 laps to race, Marks led Dietrich, Macri, fourth-place starter Justin Peck, and fifth-place starter Chase Dietz.

The race’s first and only caution unfurled on lap 23 when Tyler Ross’ sprint car fell off the pace on the frontstretch. On the ensuing restart, Dietrich tried to slide underneath Marks for the lead but lost the runner-up position to Macri. On the 27th circuit, Peck got by Dietrich for the third position.

While Marks and Macri were setting a blistering pace, 10th-place starter Dylan Cisney made a last-lap pass by Dietz for the fifth position. Marks took the checkered flag by 1.6 seconds over Macri, Peck, Dietrich, and Cisney.

Front row starters Dan Stone and Andrew Yoder dueled for the early lead for several laps until A. Yoder pulled ahead. While running the highline, A. Yoder kept his racer in the lead with Stone drawing a bead on the bottom of the race track.

With 10 laps remaining, sixth-place starter Jeff Rine began to show speed and advanced to the second position. In the final five laps, Rine attempted to reel in Stone to no avail.

Steve Buckwalter Makes Late Decsion to Head to Port Royal Pay Off With Sixth Career Win; Ken Duke Jr. and Jason Shultz also Win During Open Wheel Madness 1
April 25th, 2021

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Penn. (April 25, 2021)- Steve Buckwalter didn’t plan to be at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday. However, when incoming rain forced the start time to move two hours up and with his shop close by, they made the decision to press their luck and head to Juniata County.

Buckwalter made the decision pay off with his sixth career trip to victory lane at the Speedway as he held off a hard charging Dylan Cisney to bank the $4000 payday by a margin of .70 seconds.

“We were supposed to be at Lincoln, but with the time change we were not going to make it in time,” said Buckwalter. “So we made the decision to shoot on over to Port and I guess it was the right move.”

Tyler Reeser and Kody Lehman led the Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Car field to the green flag with Reeser getting the early jump to lead the opening circuit. Sixth starter Buckwalter was already up to fourth at the completion of lap one.

Buckwalter got by Lehman for third on lap three and five laps later he disposed of second place Justin Whittall five laps later and set his sights on the point. One lap later the Royersford Rocket used a slide job entering turn three to take the lead on lap nine.

Whittall got by Reeser for the runner up spot with 12 laps to go and eighth-starter Cisney used a two-for-one move in turn’s three and four to go form fifth to third. Cisney moved into the runner-up spot and Tyler Bear slid into third and was heavy in pursuit of Cisney.

However, Buckwalter was in control and at one point he held a near three-second advantage on the field as he entered lapped traffic. Glued to the bottom, Buckwalter was struggling to pass the lapped cars and it allowed Cisney to close over the final handful of circuits.

However Buckwalter was not to be denied as he crossed under the checkered flag for his first win of the season. Cisney took second followed by Whittal, Bear and 11th-place starter Danny Dietrich.

“This is why I’m hired and that’s to win races,” said Buckwalter. “I feeel like we should be winning more than we are. It’s tough up here and It’s just so damn slick. We had some motor issues here the past few weeks and I talked to Tim at HP and we worked through it and got it running now.”

For Cisney he felt he needed to get to the front earlier as he knew the bottom would be the place to be and it would be tough to make a move later.

“I was trying to get to the front early as I knew with the way the track was it was really my only shot to maybe get a win,” he said. “We struggled pretty badly last week, so to come out of here with a second is something we’ll take and try and get better.”

Anthony Macri finished sixth with a charge from the 14th starting spot to earn the $200 Valley Supply Hard Charger Award. Blaine Heimbach, Logan Wagner, Gerrard McIntyre and Lehman rounded out the top-ten. Ryan Smith earned the $1000 Warrior Award courtesy of J&S Fabrication after finishing 24th and a random draw in victory lane drew number 24.

Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Car Feature Finish, 25 Laps: 1. Steve Buckwalter; 2. Dylan Cisney; 3. Justin Whittall; 4. Tyler Bear; 5. Danny Dietrich; 6. Anthony Macri; 7. Blane Heimbach; 8. Logan Wagner; 9. Gerard McIntyre Jr.; 10. Kody Lehman; 11. Mike Wagner; 12. AJ Flick; 13. Lucas Wolfe; 14. Jeff Halligan; 15. Justin Peck; 16. Jared Esh; 17. Mike Walter II; 18. Tyler Reeser; 19. Brent Marks; 20. Curt Stroup; 21. Jeff Miller; 22. Rick Lafferty; 23. Michael Bauer; 24. Ryan Smith.

Penns Valley Meat Market PA Sprint Series 305 Sprint Cars

Ken Duke Jr. lead wire to wire to collect the Penns Valley Meat Market PA Sprint Series 305 Sprint Car victory for his first Port Royal Speedway victory of the season. The win was Duke’s third career Speedway triumph and moved him into a four-way tie for 9th all-time on the Speedway winners list..

Lining up from the outside front row, Duke blasted out to the early lead in the 20-lap race. However it was 14th starter Kassidy Kreitz that had the fans on their feet as she raced into the top-five by lap three.

Kreitz took second on lap five and stayed glued to the bottom of the Speedway in chase of Duke. With 12 laps to go, Duke was in heavy lapped traffic and two laps later Kreitz was all over the tail tank of the savvy veteran.

Coming out of turn two with eights laps to go, Kreitz streaked under Duke down the backstretch, only for the pass to be negated as a car caught fire in turn two to bring out the red flag. The restart gave Duke the clean air he desperately needed and he went on the lead the final eight laps to score the victory by a margin of 2.760 seconds over Kreitz.

Dave Grube, Garrett Bard and Austin Reed rounded out the rest of the top-five. Doug Dodson, pole sitter Rowdy Heffner, Mikkell McGee, Nick Sweigart and hard charger Jeff Weaver completed the top ten. Weaver earned an additional $100 courtesy of Penns Valley Meat Market as he went 25th to 10th and was the biggest mover,

“It seems like forever since we won a race and the track was really to our liking,” said Duke. “We got lucky and got started on the front row, but lapped traffic was hurting us. Kassidy has us beat and luckily that caution came out and we got clean air and we were good from there.”

URC 360 Sprint Cars

Jason Shultz charged from the sixth starting position to overtake Anthony Macri and Ryan Smith to score the $2000 Port Royal Speedway victory. The win continued a trend of 410 Sprint Car drivers winning in the division at ‘The Speed Palace’ and came by 1.187 seconds.

“There was a little bit of rubber down there and usually Macri is beating down the outside fence, so we were beating down the inside fence,” said Shultz. “Macri tried the outside there, but ultimately the bottom was the place to be and we ended up here tonight.”

Smith and Macri both pulled double duty for the night and they led the field to the green flag. Macri got the jump form the outside front row and he led the opening 10 laps of the race. However he struggled in lapped traffic and allowed Smith to sneak under him exiting turn two to take the lead and lead lap 11.

The caution flew for a car slowing in turn four and Macri tried to use the outside during a double wide restart to take point, but couldn’t complete the pass. Shultz capitalized and was able to go from fourth to second and set his sights on Smith.

With six laps to go, Shultz was all over the tail tank of Smith and the following lap he snuck under the leader to grab the point with five laps to go. A caution with three laps to go set up a late dash for the win, however Shultz was not to be denied as he cruised home to the victory aboard the Ritter Racing No. 35.

Smith, Macri, Adam Carberry and Micheal Walter rounded out the top-five while Robbie Kendall, Andy Best, Kyle Smith, Pauly Colagiovanni and Jordan Thomas completed the top-ten.

“We havn’t won too many times and with my kids here I guess this is a good time to win,” said Shultz. “There is a lot of people here tonight and it looked like it was going to rain, so I just got to thank everyone for sticking it out and making this happen.”

URC 360 Sprint Car Feature Finish, 25 Laps: 1. Jason Shultz; 2. Ryan Smith; 3. Anthony Macri; 4. Adam Carberry; 5. Michael Walter II; 6. Robbie Kendall; 7. Andy Best; 8. Kyle Smith; 9.

First Williams Grove World Of Outlaws Invasion Of 2021 Just Two Weeks Away

Can Brad Sweet Overcome In Morgan Cup Weekend To Claim First Grove Win?

4/25/21

Mechanicsburg – The first assault of the season by the NOS Energy Drink World of Outlaws Sprint Cars Series on the Pennsylvania Posse is just two weeks away at Williams Grove Speedway.

Slated for May 14 and 15, H & N Landscaping of Mechanicsburg will present a two-day outlaws stand at Williams Grove.

Adult general admission for each night of the Williams Grove outlaws stand is set at $30 with youth ages 13 –20 admitted for $15.

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

Both of the weekend’s racing programs will pay $10,000 to win with Friday’s main event going 25 laps while the Saturday feature will go for 30.

Saturday’s winner will receive an additional 5K to be declared the 2021 Morgan Cup Champion to go along with bragging rights as Morgan Cup Champion for a year of either the World of Outlaws series stars or those of the Pennsylvania Posse.

Outlaws champion Brad Sweet, “The Big Cat,” of Grass Valley California will enter the fracas in firm control of the World of Outlaws season point standings as he vies for his third series title in a row at the wheel of Kasey Kahne’s No. 49.

Sweet has five wins on the outlaws season to date although several other drivers have scored including Sheldon Haudenschild, David Gravel, Logan Schuchart, James McFadden, Carson Macedo and Aaron Reutzel.

However Williams Grove Speedway hasn’t exactly been kind to Sweet over the years as the Californian has yet to crack the winner’s circle despite making it onto the podium on a few occasions.

Sweet will be trying to change that during the May 14/15 outlaws and posse match-up.

Aaron Reutzel, aboard the Roth No. 83, may be one to watch with the outlaws when he gets back to Williams Grove in two weeks as the Texas native has really learned his way around the big half-mile in recent seasons.

Reutzel became the first and remains the only All Stars driver to take an All Stars win at the oval since he took his first track chckers back in 2019 before going on to claim two more.

At Williams Grove, no driver has been dominant with four main events to date producing four different winners including Freddie Rahmer, Justin Peck Kyle Larson and Lucas Wolfe.

Rahmer is the current oval point leader.

Perennial outlaws killer at Williams Grove, posse pilot Lance Dewease seems poised to score his elusive 100th career speedway win and nothing would please the Fayetteville flyer more than to do so over the outlaws big dogs.

Advanced reserved seat tickets for all 2021 Williams Grove Speedway and the NOS Energy Drink World of Outlaws Sprint Cars Series events are available exclusively through the NOS Energy Drink World of Outlaws.

Fans who wish to obtain any reserved seats for any of the six outlaws events at the track in 2021 can purchase tickets via the official outlaws official website located at www.worldofoutlaws.com/tix or by calling 1.844.DIRT.TIX.

Wednesday, May 12 (7:30PM) World of Outlaws Gettysburg Clash [rain date: Thursday, May 13]

Abbottstown, PA (April 24, 2021) – Going into Saturday night’s racing competition Tyler Ross had one career 410 win at Lincoln and that came almost exactly 5 years and 1 week ago on April 16, 2016. Ross teamed up with car owner Rick Lefever for 2021 after an off-season that saw Ross put in a lot of work physically and mentally to prepare for the upcoming season. All of Ross’s hard work paid off on Saturday when he charged from his twelfth place starting spot to victory lane.

Dwight Leppo started on the pole of the 30-lap feature with Scott Fisher lined up on the outside of the front row.

Fisher used the top or turns 1 and 2 to lead down the back stretch. Jim Siegel got under Leppo as they drove into turn 3 to take second.

Ross used the high line around the track to drive from twelfth to fourth in two laps.

Siegel was closing in on Fisher as they approached lapped traffic when the yellow flag came out on lap 9. Tim Glatfelter was sitting in turns 3 and 4 facing traffic. Glatfelter rejoined the field.

Fisher led Siegel, Ross, Matt Campbell and Alan Krimes on the restart.

Siegel looked to the inside of Fisher for the lead which left the door open for Ross to drive by Siegel for second. Siegel slide Ross back in an attempt to reclaim second, but Ross held on.

Campbell closed in on Ross and Siegel as they battled for position and drove by Siegel for third coming out of turn 4 on lap 11.

Campbell was all over Ross trying to take over second when the yellow came out on lap 12. Billy Dietrich did a 360 spin in turn 1. Dietrich kept going, but Kerry Madsen got collected in the spin ending his night.

The top five for the restart were Fisher, Ross, Campbell, Siegel and Krimes. Ross tried the bottom on the restart in an attempt to take the lead while also holding off Campbell as he made a run for second.

Ross was closing in on Fisher at the halfway point and pulled a slide job in turns 3 and 4 on lap 16 and took the lead at the line by inches. Campbell followed and took over the second spot.

Ross and Campbell were both riding the wall around the track as they caught the tail end of the field on lap 22. Just as the leaders started to work their way through lapped traffic, the caution came out on lap 23 for Austin Bishop who slowed on the back stretch. Bishop came to a stop in turn 4 after having lost his brakes.

With seven laps to go Ross led Campbell, Krimes, Fisher and Chase Dietz to the cone for the restart. Both Ross and Campbell were looking to score career win number two at Lincoln in the 410 division.

Ross scored his first win of 2021 by .954 seconds over Campbell. Krimes crossed the line third and Freddie Rahmer finished fourth. Dietz completed the top five.

Heat race winners were Dwight Leppo, Glenndon Forsythe and Scott Fisher.

Bob Stough Best in Thrilling Legends Feature Finish

Bob Stough started on the pole for the 20-lap feature on Saturday night with young-gun, Stephen Wurtzer lined up on his outside. Despite the pole position, the win for Stough was not a walk in the park as he won a thrilling three-car battle that came down to the final turn.

When the green flag dropped on the field Wurtzer used the outside to lead the field out of turn 2. Stough was running second with Shaun Abney in third. Chris Transeau, who had won Friday night at Trail-Way Speedway to take the first race in the Wurtzer Garage Shoot Out, found himself in fourth place.

Wurtzer and Stough were pulling away from Abney and the rest of the field.

Stough had a solid run in the turns and was right on Wurtzer’s bumper.

Jeremy Ott was up to fifth from his ninth starting spot on lap 4. Stough looked to the outside of Wurtzer on the back stretch with Wurtzer holding onto the lead.

Lap 6 was an exciting one as Ott drove by Transeau for fourth and Stough looked to the outside of Wurtzer going into turn 3 to take the lead.

Wurtzer did not let Stough get far, and Ott was reeling them in as the laps ticked down.

Wurtzer was all over Stough at the halfway point trying to find a way to take back the lead. The two raced side by side at the line on lap 11 with Stough holding the advantage.

Ott caught up with Stough and Wurtzer to make it a three-car battle for the lead. Ott looked for a way under Wurtzer on lap 13 with Wurtzer holding the spot by a nose at the line. Only .163 seconds separated first and third.

Ott got by Wurtzer for second at the line with five laps to go. Wurtzer had the spot back by a nose on the following lap, now with only .149 seconds separating the top three cars.

A caution on lap 17 cooled down the action on the track momentarily. Choya Young stopped on the track coming out of turn 4.

With only three laps remaining Stough had to hold off Ott, Wurtzer, Transeau and his teammate Travis Perry on the restart.

Ott showed his nose under Stough in turns 1 and 2 with Wurtzer right behind him.

Stough had the lead when the white flag waved. Wurtzer got by Ott coming out of turn 2 and coming out of turn 4 it was a fierce battle to the checkered flag.

Stough won the race by .165 seconds over Ott. Wurtzer crossed the line third only .207 seconds behind Stough. Transeau finished fourth to claim the Wurtzer Garage Shoot Out Championship. Perry finished fifth, crossing the line under a second behind Stough.

Central PA Legends heat winners were Josh Schrum, Travis Perry, Bob Stough and Stephen Wurtzer.

Michael Altobelli Continues to Dominate in Mid Atlantic Modifieds

Michael Altobelli came into Saturday night’s competition having gone three for three in Mid Atlantic Modified races so far in 2021. With his $1,000 win at Lincoln, he made it four wins in four races on the season.

Steve Axtell started on the pole of the 25-lap feature and took the lead going into turn 1 with Jared Spalding racing him wheel-to-wheel down the back stretch. Spalding had the lead at the line with sixth starting Altobelli already working his way into second.

Jimmy Jesmer and Brandon Householder battled for fourth with Jesmer taking the spot.

Altobelli was reeling in Spalding and showed his nose to the leader on lap 5. The two raced side by side coming out of turn 4 with Spalding holding onto the top spot.

The yellow flag came out on lap 6 for TJ DeHaven who got spun around in turn 4.

The field lined up for a Delaware style restart, with the leader, Spalding, out front and the rest of the field side by side behind him.

Spalding continued to hold off Altobelli until lap 9 when Altobelli took the lead coming out of turn 4.

Cody Oliver raced his way to fourth from his 11th starting spot and Mike Franklin was up to fifth after starting 13th.

Altobelli was pulling away from Spalding and the rest of the field at the halfway point of the race when the caution came out on lap 16 for Spalding who came to a stop in turn 4.

Altobelli led the field for the Delaware style restart with Axtell and Oliver lined up behind him.

Oliver got by Axtell for second and it did not take long for Franklin to take third from Axtell.

Jesmer got high in turn 4 and ended up turned around bringing out the caution on lap 18.

Franklin got by Oliver for second on the restart. The top four were pulling away from the rest of the field as the laps wound down.

Altobelli got to the checkered flag first ahead of Franklin. Oliver finished third and Axtell held on to cross the line fourth. Brandon Householder completed the top five.

Next Saturday, May 1, Lincoln Speedway is back in action with 410 Sprint Cars, 358 Sprints (Summer Series) and Penn-Mar Vintage. Racing starts at 7:30PM with pit gates opening at 5PM and grandstand gates opening at 5:30PM.

Lucas Wolfe Wins First In Williams Grove Sprints Since 2019, Locke Repeats In 358s

4/23/21

Mechanicsburg – Lucas Wolfe wired the field for the 25-lap sprint car victory at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, taking his first oval win since July of 2019.

Wolfe started on the pole of the feature aboard the Allebach No. 5W and never looked back to record his 22nd career speedway win.

In the 20-lap 358 sprint main, Derek Locke won for the second week in a row to notch his fifth career Williams Grove Speedway victory and tie his father Howie on the all-time win list.

Wolfe was chased by Kyle Moody when the 410 sprint feature got underway and caution flags with two and four laps completed forced restarts.

Moody failed to produce a challenge on either of those restarts and was trailing along with Chad Trout and Alan Krimes when another yellow flag bunched the field with nine laps away.

For the restart, 15th starter Anthony Macri lined up sixth followed by 14th starter Justin Peck.

And Peck was the man on the move during the second half of the event as Wolfe led the pack.

Peck, of Monrovia, Indiana, got by Alan Krimes for fifth with 11 laps to go and then pulled up on Dylan Cisney for fourth with nine to go.

One by one Peck blasted by both Trout and then Moody to race into second, overtaking Trout on a restart with six laps to go.

But that final restart killed the momentum that Peck had going before the yellow and it cleared and cleaned the track for Wolfe’s drive to the finish.

With open track, Wolfe was able to maintain control during the final five laps to get the win with hard charging Peck finishing second aboard the Tom Buch No. 13.

Freddie Rahmer, who started 13th in the field, came on strong during the second half as well, driving up to third for the finish.

Dylan Cisney was fourth and Moody was fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Krimes, Macri, Troy Wagaman Jr., Chad Trout and Chase Dietz.

Heats went to Wolfe, Moody and Trout with Lance Dewease taking the consolation race before scratching for the main event.

Matt Findley grabbed the early lead in the 20-lap main event for the 358 Sprints while Zach Newlin trailed.

Findley began lapping slower cars as Locke challenged Newlin for second at the halfway point.

A yellow flag interrupted the battle with 10 laps to go and Locke used the middle groove of turn one to pass Newlin on the restart.

Another yellow slowed the pace before Locke again used the middle on the restart to stay with Findley.

The pair was nose-to-tail off the second turn and around the track as action resumed before Locke got next to Findley and pulled even with him down the backchute .

Locke then took the lead by a nose at the flagstand with six laps to go before pulling away.

Findley, Newlin, Steve Owings and Zachary Cool completed the top five.

Scott Fisher, Chris Frank, Cody Fletcher, Chad Criswell and Devin Adams rounded out the top ten.

Heat races for the 22 cars were won by Fletcher, Newlin and Owings

It was a chilly night on the hill but a speedy and efficiently run show was completed by 9:45 PM.

Two years have passed since the USAC National Sprint Car Series has taken laps at Grandview Speedway, but the result hasn’t changed as ‘The Macho Man’ Brady Bacon claimed his fourth consecutive USAC win.

“Grandview has quickly become one of my favorite tracks, and I look forward to coming here every year,” Bacon said in USAC Victory lane. “I knew if I could get to second, I’d be in a good position to get the win.”

Kevin Thomas Jr. jumped to the front of the pack at the drop of the green flag with Brandon Mattox, Tim Buckwalter, and Bacon in hot pursuit. Thomas gained a full-straight-a-way lead in the initial circuits while the battle for second heated up.

Bacon charged into third position on the sixth lap, and powered outside of Mattox coming out of turn two, moving into the second position just two laps later. The yellow flew for sixth-place competitor, Chris Windom, who spun after contact slowing the action for the first time of the night.

Losing his sizable lead, Thomas maintained the top spot on the restart with Bacon on his tail. The two diced around the topside of the one-third mile high banks, and battled side-by-side down the straightaways, working their way through heavy lapped traffic.

As the scoreboard ticked passed lap 20, Bacon slid high in turn four and dove to the inside of Thomas to complete the pass for the lead, quickly pulling a full 1 second advantage over Thomas.

The red flag flew on lap 29 for Steven Drevicki, who tagged the wall and flipped between turns 3 and 4.

Bacon continued his quest for four in-a-row on the restart, but Thomas wasn’t done, closing in during the later stages of the event, rapidly switching lanes but unable to make a move on Bacon, who scored the win and the $6,000 payday.

Kevin Thomas Jr. settled for second, Robert Ballou in third from the 13th starting position, Tanner Thorson finished in fourth and Jake Swanson rounded out the top five.

Bacon’s win tied him for the most consecutive Thunder on the Hill Racing Series wins, a record held by Greg Hodnett.

Boyertown, Pennsylvania’s Craig Von Dohren picked up the win in the 30-lap 358 Modified portion of the event scoring the $3,000 top prize.

“The thing about Grandview is that you never know how close someone is, so you always have to be prepared and stay up on the wheel,” Von Dohren said in NAPA Auto Parts Victory Lane.

Alex Yankowski started on the pole position and led the first two circuits with heavy pressure from two of Grandview’s winningest drivers, Von Dohren and Duane Howard .

Von Dohren powered passed Yankowski exiting turn two and charged to a sizable lead, with Howard moving into the second position.

The only challenge came when CVD battled through lapped traffic at the mid-way point of the event, but a caution with five laps to go offered up an open track and the ability to coast onto victory.

Duane Howard finished in the second position, Alex Yankowski in third, Jeff Strunk in fourth and Doug Manmiller in fifth.

ZEMCO Headers presented $50 Gift Certificates the USAC Heat Race and Semi Winners: Alex Bright, Joey Biasi, Chris Windom, and Briggs Danner and one to the worst 358 Modified starting line-up draw car won by Rick Laubach.

Modified Heat Race Winners Duane Howard, Jared Umbenhauer, and Doug Manmiller were presented with $100 courtesy of Harry & George Turner of GT Automotive & GT Radiator Repairs. $100 was also presented to both the USAC Sprint Car and 358 Modified winning Crew Chief courtesy of Robert Altman.

Robert Altman, who always has the Thunder on the Hill fans in mind, said ‘Thank You’ by presenting lucky fans with $10 WAWA gift cards.

The NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series returns to Grandview Speedway on Sunday, May 30 with the ‘Roaring Triple 20s’ event featuring three 20-lap feature events for the Big-Block and 358 Modifieds, along with the Sportsman, and Outlaw Racing Series Vintage cars.

LUCAS OIL AMERICAN SPRINT CAR SERIES
RETURNS TO SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY MAY 1
IN $4,000-TO-WIN “BATTLE OF THE GROVES!”

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – The Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series (ASCS) National Tour returns to Selinsgrove Speedway at 6 p.m. Saturday, May 1, for the highly anticipated RiteWay Sealing & Paving “Battle of the Groves” with the United Racing Club (URC). The 25-lap main event for the 360 sprint cars will pay $4,000 to win!

The limited late models will make their season debut in a 20-lap main event paying $1,200 to win, with the roadrunners getting their second start of 2021 in a 12-lap feature offering $300 to win.

Pit gates will open at 3 p.m. followed by grandstand gates at 4 p.m. Qualifying is slated for 6 p.m.

The ASCS race will be the first of seven events for 360 sprint cars as part of Selinsgrove Speedway’s 75th anniversary season. While the winner will take home $4,000 on May 1, the race will award a notable $2,000 to finish second, $1,500 for third, $1,200 for fourth, $1,000 for fifth, and $400 to take the green flag out of the $18,000 purse!

The former three-time track champion out-raced a stellar field of 41 360 sprint car drivers for the victory. The 2019 race was rained out and last year’s event was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Title sponsor RiteWay Sealing & Paving of Selinsgrove provides residential and commercial customers with high-quality asphalt sealing and maintenance. The company, with ten years of experience, also offers concrete services.

The Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series National Tour will kick off the Eastern swing at Williams Grove Speedway the night before at 7:30 p.m. Friday, April 30, in an open wheel doubleheader with the 410 sprint cars.

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY: A Motorsports Tradition for Generations

Selinsgrove Speedway’s grand motorsports tradition began July 20, 1946, when Bill Holland of Philadelphia won the first race. Since that historic day, Holland went on to win the 1949 Indy 500, and many of motorsports’ most famous drivers have turned laps at the iconic half-mile dirt track designed by legendary Hollywood stuntman and race car driver Joie Chitwood. The speedway, celebrating its momentous 75th anniversary in 2021, will continue its legacy of rip-roaring open wheel and stock car racing this season and for future generations!

PORT ROYAL, Pa. (April 17, 2021) - It was a dogfight to the end, but three-time Port Royal Speedway track champion, Logan Wagner, stood his ground and prevailed on Saturday evening at the “Speed Palace,” eventually capping the annual Keith Kauffman Classic featuring the FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 as the main attraction on the Port Royal victory lane platform. Forced to outduel Clauson Marshall Racing’s Tyler Courtney, as well as a hard-charging Anthony Macri, Wagner’s Keith Kauffman Classic victory allowed the Harrisonville-native to bump his All Star win total to two, earning a cool $10,000 in the process. Wagner’s last visit to All Star victory lane occurred at Lernerville Speedway in 2017.

“This is a weight lifted off of my shoulders for the whole year,” Logan Wagner said in victory lane. “I mean, we won against the All Stars. I just can’t thank everyone enough who helps get this car to the track. We’ve been really fast lately, just haven’t been able to get that first win until now. What a way to do it.”

Lining up fourth on the main event grid, Wagner’s march to the front initiated quickly. A move around Jeff Halligan on lap five maneuvered Wagner to third, picking off Outlaw invader, Jacob Allen, for second just two circuits later. In the meantime, 2021 All Star Rookie of the Year contender, Tyler Courtney, was the man in charge, utilizing his pole position to score the early advantage.

Although Courtney was able to stretch his legs and create some space between himself and the rest of the field, a run-in with traffic on lap ten would create the negative momentum shift that Wagner benefited from. By lap 14, Wagner was all over the back bumper of Courtney, applying pressure lap after lap and nearly getting by the Indianapolis-native with four consecutive slide job attempts at the exit of turn four. Despite Wagner’s persistence, Courtney held strong, keeping the Zemco Speed Equipment/Zemco Tool and Die/Zemco Headers/No. 1 at bay.

His ability to hold off Wagner was impressive, banging the boards all the way around Port Royal Speedway, but lap 22 would prove to be the end of Courtney’s reign. In an attempt to split a pair of lappers, Courtney’s momentum faded, ultimately slipping up the surface which opened the door for Wagner to sneak through. Wagner would go on to lead the circuit, now with Courtney, Jacob Allen, and Anthony Macri in tow.

Macri started 21st, forced to do so after a heat race incident left him to participate in the evening's B-Main.

A two position jump over Allen and Courtney propelled Macri to second on lap 28, next setting aim on Wagner. Just what the “Concrete Kid” needed, caution flags appeared on the final circuit setting up what would be back-to-back green-white-checkered restarts. The first restart attempt was called back due to another caution, but the second restart went off as planned. Macri did his best to overtake Wagner, even attempting a slider between turns one and two, but a drag race down the backstretch, and a quick chop into three, would go in Wagner’s favor.

“I had to chop him a little bit, but that’s just the way it goes,” Wagner added. “We were banging wheels a little bit racing down the backstretch. It was a pretty exciting last two laps.”

Anthony Macri held on to finish second, followed by Ian Madsen, Jacob Allen, and Lance Dewease.

Moving ahead, the All Star Circuit of Champions will conclude their four-race stretch with the $6,000-to-win Johnny Grum Classic at Bedford Speedway on Sunday, April 18.

LINCOLN SPEEDWAY

Abbottstown, PA

EXCITEMENT FILLED WELDON STERNER MEMORIAL GOES TO FREDDIE RAHMER; Ashley Cappetta Wires Field for Second Career Victory

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Saturday, April 24, 2021 (7:30PM) 410 Sprints + Central PA Legends and Mid-Atlantic Modifieds (York County Racing Club Night)

Saturday, May 1 (7:30PM) 410 Sprints + 358 Sprints (Summer Series) and Penn-Mar Vintage

Saturday, May 8 (7:30PM) 410 Sprints + Super Sportsman (Tour Series) and Extreme Stocks

Abbottstown, PA (April 17, 2021) – The 18th Annual Weldon Sterner Memorial was one for the ages with three different leaders on the final lap. In the end Freddie Rahmer came out on top winning the $6,900 in his first win of the season at Lincoln.

The night started with Bradley Howard setting quick time over the 32 car field, with a lap of 13.276 seconds. The Pennsylvania Speedweek format was followed and a redraw was held for the first eight spots in the feature starting line-up.

Tim Shaffer drew the number 1 pill to start on the pole of the 33-lap feature. Matt Campbell, who was running a #69 Sterner Cement wing for the memorial race, lined up second.

Shaffer took the lead when the green flag dropped with Austin Bishop moving into second. Campbell went to the top in turns 1 and 2 and took second back and Freddie Rahmer followed, taking third coming out of turn 4.

Rahmer drove under Campbell in turns 3 and 4 to take second on lap 2. Chase Dietz went to work on Campbell for third and the two battled for the position with Campbell having the better run in turns 1 and 2 and Dietz holding the advantage in 3 and 4.

Just as Shaffer had started to work his way through lapped traffic, the yellow flag came out on lap 8 for Cory Haas who came to a stop on the front stretch.

Shaffer led Freddie, Campbell, Dietz and Bishop for the single-file restart. Shaffer went to the bottom in turns 1 and 2 with Rahmer opting for the middle line. Dietz got by Campbell for third.

Shaffer was getting a great run off of turn 2 and Dietz was closing in on Rahmer for third as the leaders caught the tail-end of the field on lap 15.

You could throw a blanket over the top three, Shaffer, Rahmer and Dietz as they all raced for the lead. Dietz slid Rahmer on lap 15 for second, but Rahmer slid him right back on the next lap to reclaim the runner-up spot. Despite lapped traffic the battle for second continued to rage on.

Dietz was back in second on lap 19 and made a move for the lead in turn 4 to no avail. Two laps later, Rahmer was back in second and the battle for second was halted by a red flag on lap 22 when Tyler Ross flipped in turn 4.

The top five for the restart were Shaffer, Freddie, Dietz, Campbell and Troy Wagaman.

Rahmer looked to the outside of Shaffer in turns 1 and 2 for the lead but could not complete the pass.

Tim Wagaman was working on Troy Wagaman to get into the top five and took the spot on lap 25.

Rahmer was able to stay within striking distance of Shaffer by using the high line around the track.

Lapped traffic was looming in front of the leaders as the laps wound down. Dietz was closing in on Rahmer and both Dietz and Rahmer were closing in on the leader, Shaffer. Rahmer and Dietz were wheel-to-wheel at the line when the white flag waved.

Rahmer passed Shaffer and had the lead coming out of turn 2. Dietz had a great run down the back stretch and got his nose under Rahmer for the lead for a brief moment in turns 3 and 4. As the top three came out of turn 4 for the checkered flag, it was anyone’s race.

Rahmer held on to win his first Weldon Sterner Memorial. Shaffer edged by Dietz for second. Only .306 seconds separated the top three at the line. Campbell finished fourth and Tim Wagaman, the hard charger of the race, finished fifth advancing eight spots after lining up 13th.

Heat race winners were Austin Bishop, Glenndon Forsythe, Tim Shaffer and Chase Dietz.

Ashley Cappetta Wires Field for Second Career Victory

Ashley Cappetta and Wyatt Hinkle shared the front row for the 20-lap feature on Saturday night.

Cappetta led the field into turn 1 with cars racing nearly three wide behind her for second.

Hinkle and Findley were wheel to wheel at the line with Findley claiming the second spot. Justin Foster entered the mix to make it a three car battle for second.

Foster got by Hinkle for third on lap 4 before the yellow flew on lap 5 when Brett Strickler and David Holbrook got together in turn 4. Both Strickler and Holbrook rejoined the field.

Cappetta let Findley, Foster, Hinkle and Tyler Esh on the restart.

Findley was all over Cappetta on the restart searching for a way into the top spot. Foster reeled in Findley and used the outside to claim second but another caution came before the lap was completed.

Both Jordan Strickler and Zachary Allman were stopped on the track and both drivers were able to rejoin the field.

Once again Findley was searching the track for a way to get by Cappetta on the restart. While Findley was searing Foster got by him by second and this time the pass was official. Foster showed his nose under Cappetta at the line, but she held on to the lead.

The yellow flag flew again on lap 7 when Cody Fletcher got turned around in turn 4 and Austen Treuchet was stopped in turn 3. Fletcher and Treuchet rejoined.

Foster looked to the outside of Cappetta on the restart and the two drag raced down the back stretch with Cappetta holding onto the lead.

Jeff Rohrbaugh entered the top five on lap 8 after lining up 14th for the start of the 20-lap feature.

Foster was still on Cappetta’s bumper and the two raced wheel-to-wheel at the line on lap 13.

Lap 14 saw the yellow flag wave when Dylan Orwig, Treuchet and Allman got together in turns 1 and 2.

The top five for the final restart of the race were Cappetta, Foster, Findley, Hinkle and Rohrbaugh.

Foster tried the outside again but Cappetta held him off in turns 3 and 4. As the laps wound down Foster fell back allowing Cappetta to gain a significant lead.

Cappetta took the checkered flag for her second career feature win 1.570 seconds ahead of Foster. Findley held on to finish third. Hinkle crossed the line fourth and Rohrbaugh completed the top five.

358 sprint car heat winners were Hayden Miller, Tyler Esh and Mason Chaney.

“I Just Like Racin’ Race Cars,” says Kyle Larson Before Wiping Up Williams Grove All Stars Tommy Classic Field

Derek Locke Wins First Race Of Season For 358 Sprints

4/16/21

Mechanicsburg – Kyle Larson took his first 410-sprint car start of the year and wiped up the field at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night for a $6,000 payday in the All Stars Tommy Hinnershitz Classic.

It was his second win in a row in one of the track’s marquee events for the big sprint cars after also scoring the race last season.

“It’s cool to get a win our first night out,” Larson said after trouncing Lance Dewease in the 30-lap contest as Dewease was trying to get his elusive 100th career speedway victory.

Larson recently scored a huge win in dirt late model action in Bristol, Tennessee, and prior to that he scored his first NASCAR Sprint Series checkers of the season on the tour while wheeling for Rick Hendrick.

And on Friday night he overtook good friend Lance Dewease on lap 10 to drive away to a popular win aboard Paul Silva’s No. 57 in the All Stars Circuit of Champions Sprints event.

“I used to hate this place. Once I came here with Paul I don’t know if we’ve been outside the top three or four,” Larson said in victory lane.

“Now that I’m fast, I love this place!”

Dewease and Larson shared the front row for the start of the big event with Dewease getting the jump on Larson at the beginning.

The red flag then appeared with three laps down for a turned over TJ Stutts on the backstretch.

Larson stuck with Dewease when action resumed, not letting him get away and as the leaders came up on traffic, Larson took his first swipe at Dewease in the third and fourth corners on lap nine and quickly closed the gap on the pacesetter.

That gave Larson the run he wanted down the frontchute and when Dewease dropped off of the cushion and set the car in low in the first turn, Larson just blew by him around the top to get the lead on lap 10.

“I could close on Lance no matter where I ran in one and two so I knew I had a better car,” Larson said.

And he took Dewease by surprise.

“ I really didn’t think he was that close to me,” Dewease said.

Shortly after being scored the leader, a final caution flag unfurled and Larson simply walked off when action resumed.

He entered the rear of the field on lap 17 which allowed Dewease to close the gap somewhat but Larson was flawless in traffic and pulled away to the finish, taking the win while going away by 2.707 seconds.

Freddie Rahmer rode home third followed by Ian Maadsen and Anthony Macri.

Sixth through 10th went to Tony Stewart, Tim Shaffer, Kerry Madsen, Tyler Courtney and Paul McMahan.

Heats went to Ian Madsen, Stewart, Kerry Madsen and Shaffer with Brent Shearer taking the B Main.

Dewease and Larson won the dashes to earn the feature front row.

Dewease set fast time over the 35 car field with a lap of 16.315 seconds.

Wyatt Hinkle led the first lap of the 20-lap 358 sprint main before Tyler Breahm drove into the lead.

Defending track champion Derek Locke started eighth in the field and he was already up to second behind Brehm on lap four.

Brehm drove a stout race and forced Locke to wrestle him for the lead before the Carlisle driver got around for control with eight laps to go.

It was Locke’s fourth career oval victory.

Brehm rode home second followed by Chris Frank, Cody Fletcher and Kyle Denmyer.

Heats went to Brett Wanner, Brehm and Denmyer.

APRIL 25 TILLEY CLASSIC FOR 410 SPRINT CARS & SUPER LATE MODELS NEXT ON SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY’S 75th ANNIVERSARY SCHEDULE!

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Selinsgrove Speedway will honor the memory of the track’s all-time career leading sprint car feature winner with the running of the Icon Legacy Custom Modular Homes Ray Tilley Classic for the Lelands.com 410 sprint cars at 6 p.m. Sunday, April 25.

Joining the 410 sprint cars on the special Sunday night racing card will be the Jeff’s Auto Body & Recycling Center super late models. Track gates will open at 4 p.m.

The 30-lap Tilley tribute race will pay $5,088 to win and $400 to start out of a total purse of $19,888. Time trials, heat races, and a B-main will be the qualifying format. The April 25 race will be the first of the season for the Lelands.com 410 sprint cars.

The super late models will compete in a 25-lap race paying $3,000 to win and $300 to start. Gregg Satterlee of Rochester Mills scored the late model season opener at the track on April 10.

For fans who cannot attend the race, the event can be purchased as a live streaming broadcast on sprintcarunlimited.tv.

The late Ray Tilley of Pine Grove clinched four career sprint car titles (1965-66 and 1968-69) at Selinsgrove Speedway at the wheel of the Bud Grimm Special No. 88 and remains on top of the track’s all-time sprint car win list with 69 career victories. Tilley passed away on Aug. 9, 2011, from complications of a stroke at the age of 77.

The Tilley Classics in 2012, 2014, and 2019 were cancelled due to weather. Last year’s race fell victim to the COVID-19 pandemic shutdown. The 2013 race was won by Brent Marks of Myerstown. Greg Hodnett of Thomasville was the 2015 winner and Danny Dietrich of Gettysburg scored the victory in the 2016 race. Lucas Wolfe of Mechanicsburg was the winner in 2017, with Mark Smith of Sunbury taking the checkers in 2018.

Title sponsor Icon Legacy Custom Modular Homes is located adjacent to the speedway in Selinsgrove, where the company is transforming the systems-built, modular components industry.

The Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series (ASCS) will return to Selinsgrove Speedway at 6 p.m. Saturday, May 1, in the RiteWay Sealing & Paving “Battle of the Groves” for the 360 sprint cars. The 25-lap main event will pay $4,000 to win. The limited late models and roadrunners will also be on the May 1 card.

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY: A Motorsports Tradition for Generations

Selinsgrove Speedway’s grand motorsports tradition began July 20, 1946, when Bill Holland of Philadelphia won the first race. Since that historic day, Holland went on to win the 1949 Indy 500, and many of motorsports’ most famous drivers have turned laps at the iconic half-mile dirt track designed by legendary Hollywood stuntman and race car driver Joie Chitwood.

Port Royal Set For Huge Weekend Doubleheader Featuring the All Star Circuit of Champions Sprint Cars and Lucas Oil Dirt Late Model Series

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Penn. (April 12, 20201)- Port Royal Speedway is gearing up for one of the biggest weekends of the entire season as both the FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 and the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series are coming to the speedway for a weekend doubleheader April 17-18.

The All Stars will kick off the action with the highly anticipated sixth annual Keith Kauffman Classic presented by Valley Supply Inc. on Saturday, April 17th. The drivers will be vying for a $10,000 prize, which is a $4000 increase from last year’s race.

This is the first of six scheduled events for the All Stars at Port Royal Speedway in 2021. Unique to this season though will be an increased purse for all events highlighted by the Bob Weikert Memorial paying $29,000 to win for the finale and the 54th annual Tuscarora 50 paying a record $54,000 to win. These two races are the highest paying winner’s shares on the 2021 All Star schedule at the moment.

Formed in 1970 as the first ‘Outlaw’ Sprint Car organization of the modern era, the All Stars series has been a staple in the Central Pa. region for decades past. In its current form, the series is owned by motorsports legend Tony Stewart (since 2015) and features some of the best drivers in winged sprint car action that the sport has to offer.

The event honors National Sprint Car Hall of Fame driver Kauffman, a 24-time winner with the All Stars and the winningest driver in the history of Port Royal Speedway. Along with the Sprint Cars, the Selinsgrove Ford Limited Late Models will be on the card competing for an increased $1500 to win.

Anthony Macri picked up the win during last year's event, which was postponed as a result of Covid-19 and held later in the season. Lance Dewease has won the event an unprecedented three times (2017-2019), while Dale Blaney was the winner of the race during its inaugural event in 2016.

Logan Wagner enters the weekend as the current Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Car points leader in search of his fourth consecutive track title/ Wagner leads Dylan Cisney by a mere 20 markers with Jeff Halligan (-70), Macri (-85) and Mike Wagner (-135) rounding out the rest of the top-five.

On the All Star side, Justin Peck enters the weekend as the points leader over Zeb Wise, Hunter Schuerenberg, Brent Marks and Cory Eliason.

Gates will open at 3pm with racing scheduled to begin at 6pm. General Admission is $25, Students are $10 and Pit Admission is $35.

Sunday April 18 will be the Lucas Oil Late Model Series first of four visits to the speedway in 2021 for the “River Valley 40” presented by River Valley Builders Modular Home Sales.

Series drivers like Brandon Sheppard, Devin Moran, and Hudson O’Neal will look to take on River Valley Builders Port Royal regulars like Gregg Satterlee, Jeff Rine, Andy Haus and all-time great Rick Eckert. All in quest of the $10,000 winners share!

Last year's event was cancelled as a result of Covid-19, but held later in the season as part of a three-day ‘Rumble By the River’ event. Past winners at the Speedway with the series are Kyle Larson, Tim McCreadie, Scott Bloomquist and Eckert.

O'Neal enters the weekend holding a 45-points lead in the Lucas Oil standings over Devin Moran. McCreadie is in third (-60), followed by Kyle Bronson (-120) and Brandon Sheppard (-125).

As far as the River Valley Builders Super Late Model competitors, Dylan Yoder holds a narrow 5-point advantage in the Port Royal track standings over Delaware native Ross Robinson. Gary Stuhler (-50), Colton Flinner (-80) and Trevor Feathers (-90) round out the top-five.

The Selinsgrove Ford Limited Late Models will compete on the card as well as part of a weekend doubleheader for the series. They will again be racing for an increased $1500 to win.

Devin Hart has won the last two Selinsgrove Ford Limited Late Model features at the Speedway and currently holds an 85-points advantage in the standings over Derrick Garman. Kenny Yoder (-90), Andrew Yoder (-95) and Shawn Shoemaker (-110) rounds out the top-five.

All gates will open at 2pm with racing scheduled to begin at 6pm. General admission is $25, students are $10 with pits costing $40.

 

 

Hinnershitz Legacy Honored Friday At Williams Grove

4/11/21

Mechanicsburg – This Friday’s All Stars sprint car show at Williams Grove Speedway is meant to honor its original winner. He was the first. He had one of the most recognizable names in motorsports history dating back to the 1930s.

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

Hinnershitz won the race in what was called a “hard and heady” event to best the famed Joie Chitwood. Hinnershitz’s death in 1999 left behind an auto-racing legacy worthy of note by any standards.

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

He had garnered 103 total AAA/USAC feature wins with 19 taking place at Williams Grove. Hinnershitz set 43 AAA track records during his tenure and would compete in three Indianapolis 500s.

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

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

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

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

Adult general admission for the April 16 racing program is set at $25 with students ages 13-20 admitted for just $10.

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

Saturday, May 1 (7:30PM) 410 Sprints + 358 Sprints (Summer Series) and Penn-Mar Vintage

Abbottstown, PA (April 10, 2021) – After starting the season with six different winners in six races, Tim Shaffer became the first repeat winner of 2021 at Lincoln Speedway on Saturday night. Shaffer lined up sixth and avoided a late race mishap to take the checkered flag and the $4,000 prize.

Scott Fisher and Aaron Bollinger shared the front row for the start of the 30-lap feature. Bollinger, who is in his sophomore 410 season and just turned 21 last week, had the lead coming out of turn 2. Fisher was in second and Dylan Norris was running third down the back stretch. Shaffer got by both Fisher and Norris in turn 4 to drive from sixth to second on the first lap.

The yellow flag came out on lap 2 for Matt Campbell who got turned around in turn 1. Campbell went to the pits and the team made repairs in the two-minute work time to get the car back out on the track.

Bollinger led Shaffer, Norris, Tim Glatfelter and Fisher to the cone for the single-file restart.

Shaffer hung with Bollinger on the start and was using the bottom with Bollinger ripping the high line around the track. Chase Dietz entered the top 5 on lap 3.

Bollinger continued to dominate on the high side as he approached lapped traffic on lap 6. As Bollinger worked his way by lapped cars, he was able to maneuver anywhere on the track.

Shaffer stuck with Bollinger and was on his bumper on lap 10. Dietz moved up to third on lap 11 from his eighth place starting spot.

Bollinger put two lapped cars between him and Shaffer on lap 15, allowing Dietz to close in on Shaffer for second.

Bollinger and Dietz got together in turn 4 on lap 22 bringing out the red flag. Bollinger jumped the cushion in turn three, slowing him down. Dietz had already committed to a slider and collected Bollinger as he slid back up the track.

Shaffer inherited the lead and led Glatfelter, Norris, Tim Wagaman and Freddie Rahmer on the restart.

Wagaman was working the top to try and take third from Norris. While the two battled, Freddie got by Wagaman for fourth. Tyler Ross followed making his way into the top five after starting tenth.

The white flag waved just as Shaffer was catching the tail end of the field. Shaffer won his second feature of the season by 2.561 seconds over Glatfelter. Norris held on for a season best third place finish. Freddie finished fourth and Ross completed the top five.

Heat race winners were Glenndon Forsythe, Dylan Norris and Aaron Bollinger. Three cars advanced 11 positions in the feature, Freddie Rahmer (15th to 4th), Billy Dietrich (20th to 9th) and Alan Krimes (24th to 13th). Danny Dietrich, who pulled a double, racing at both Port Royal and Lincoln on Saturday, advanced 10 positions from 21st to 11th.

Hayden Miller Scores First Career 358 Sprint Victory

Hayden Miller is in the midst of his second season running 358 sprint cars after making the jump from micros. Not only did Miller win his first feature in the division, he wired the field leading from the drop of the green to the checkered flag.

Miller shared the front row with veteran racer, and last week’s winner, Jeff Rohrbaugh. Kody Hartlaub got by Rohrbaugh on the start to take second with Miller holding on to the lead. Steve Owings got by Hartlaub at the line to take second on the first lap.

The caution came out on lap 1 when Tyler Esh spun out in turn 2 nearly landing on his side. Esh collected Ashley Cappetta. Cappetta used her two minutes of work time and rejoined the field.

Miller led Owings, Hartlaub, Rohrbaugh and Cody Fletcher on the restart. Miller got a good jump on the restart and then the red flag came out on lap 2. Brett Strickler took a wild ride in turn 4.

Fletcher and Zane Rudisill battled for fifth as they swapped fifth and sixth back and forth multiple times each lap.

Owings was closing in on Miller as they approached lapped traffic when Brett Wanner brought out the yellow flag on lap 8. Wanner was trying to exit the track in turn 2, but stopped on the edge of the ramp.

Miller paced the field ahead of Owings, Hartlaub, Rohrbaugh and Rudisill for the restart.

Owings tried to get his nose under Miller in turn 1 but Miller held the top spot.

The red flag flew again on lap 10 when Jon Stewart got upside down in turns 3 and 4. It was a rough night for Stewart. In addition to flipping in the feature, Stewart caught on fire due to a loose fuel line during hot laps.

Once again Owings looked to the inside of Miller on the restart to no avail.

Rudisill passed Rohrbaugh and Hartlaub on the back stretch to get to move from fifth to third in one lap.

Rudisill used the top to reel in Owings. Owings hit the guardrail on the inside of turn 2 allowing Rudisill to close in for the pass. The two raced side-by-side at the line with Owings holding the slight advantage. Rudisill was better in turns 1 and 2 while Owing’s car was better in 3 and 4.

Dylan Orwig brought out the yellow flag on lap 17 when he spun out in turn 4.

The top five for the restart were Miller, Rudisill, Owings, Hartlaub and Fletcher.

Rudisill looked to the outside of Miller but he took the line away to hold the lead. Rudisill was on Miller’s bumper with two laps to go but couldn’t make the pass.

Miller won his first 358 sprint car feature by .264 seconds over Rudisill. Owings crossed the line third and Hartlaub finished fourth. Fletcher completed the top five.

358 sprint car heat races were won by Jeff Rohrbaugh, Kody Hartlaub and Jordan Strickler.

Scott Schaffer Wins Outlaw Vintage Feature

Wes Cassel and Dave Dissinger started on the front row of the 20-lap feature for the Outlaw Vintage Racing Series. Cassel took the lead when the green flag dropped.

Mark Hahn and Dissinger raced side-by-side for second with Hahn taking the spot. Hahn stayed with Cassel as they closed in on lapped traffic.

Scott Schaffer made his way to third from his eighth starting spot and was closing in on the leaders when the caution came out on lap 6 when Jeff Paulson got backwards in turn 2.

Cassel led Hahn, Schaffer, Dissinger and Dingo Kirkwood on the restart. Kirkwood and Dissinger battled for fourth with Kirkwood taking the spot.

Schaffer worked his way by Hahn for second. Lapped traffic came into play allowing Schaffer to get by Cassel for the lead. Schaffer pulled away and parked his #77s in victory lane. Cassel crossed the line second and Hahn finished third. Kirkwood was fourth and Paulson rebounded from his early race spin to complete the top five.

Next Saturday, April 17, Lincoln Speedway is back in action with 410 Sprint Cars (time trials) and 358 Sprint Cars for the 18th Annual Weldon Sterner Memorial. Racing starts at 7PM with pit gates opening at 4:30PM and grandstand gates opening at 5PM.

SATTERLEEE WINS ULMS LATE MODELS ON RECORD-BREAKING NIGHT;
MILLS OUTDRIVES 40-CAR FIELD FOR 305 SPRINT CAR THRILLER;
 

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Gregg Satterlee of Rochester Mills scored the super late model season opener at Selinsgrove Speedway in Saturday night’s high-speed 30-lap United Late Model Series-sanctioned event on Performance Food Group Night.

The $3,000 victory was the third of Satterlee’s career at the Snyder County half-mile oval and third overall this season at the wheel of the Keyser Manufacturing No. 22.

Defending track champion Jeff Rine of Danville set a new one-lap late model track record in qualifying with a 18.536 lap time.

Justin Mills of Bloomingburg, N.Y., came out the victor of a multi-car duel in the 20-lap Apache Tree Service PASS/IMCA 305 sprint car main event.

After being shut out of Victory Lane last year, Keith Bissinger of Orangeville scored his 58th career roadrunner feature in the division’s 12-lap season opening race.

The amount of $2,308 was raised from a driver helmet collection Saturday night to benefit driver Bryan Bernheisel who was injured in a late model accident at Williams Grove Speedway March 26.

Next on Selinsgrove Speedway’s 75th anniversary schedule will be the Ray Tilley Classic for the Lelands.com 410 sprint cars and super late models at 6 p.m. Sunday, April 25. The 30-lap sprint car tribute race sponsored by Icon Legacy Custom Modular Homes will pay $5,088 to win. The super late models will compete in a 25-lap main event paying $3,000 to win. Track gates will open at 4 p.m.

Front row starters Max Blair and Gregg Satterlee, both late model feature winners in central Pennsylvania this season, drag raced for the lead into the turn one with Satterlee getting the edge. Fourth-place starter Jeff Rine closely trailed the leaders in third.

The first caution flag waved on lap 11 when Larry Neiderer’s machine fell off the pace. On the ensuing restart, several cars collided in turns one and two but were able to restart.

Satterlee held the lead while storming around the smooth, fast half-mile in the 18-second lap bracket. For most of the race, Blair kept the leader in his sites while Rine struggled to catch them in third.

On a lap 14 restart, Rine, eighth-place starter Dylan Yoder, and sixth-place starter Mason Zeigler raced three-wide for the third spot while Satterlee and Blair continued to lead the way at the halfway point.

D. Yoder eventually settled into the third position after a spirited battle with Rine and Zeigler. The final caution flag regrouped the field on lap 23 when Kenny Trevitz fell off the pace.

At the finish, Satterlee was victorious over Blair, D. Yoder, Rine, and seventh-place starter Dan stone.

Polesitter Christian Rumset powered into the lead at the start of the 305 sprint car feature. Rumset was chased by third-place starter Justin Mills and second-place starter Dakota Sweigart.

The race was stopped on lap six when 19th-place starter Kassidy Kreitz hit the frontsretch wall and rolled over in her 69K. Kreitz was not injured. When the race resumed, a duel for the lead unfolded between Rumsey and Mills for several laps.

On the 13th circuit, Mills made the winning pass using the inside lane off turn four but not without being challenged the rest of the way. On the final lap, the red flag unfurled when Jared Zionkowski’s car burst into flames. Zionkowski escaped without injury.

For the one-lap chase to the checkered flag, Rumsey made a last-ditch effort to pass Mills for the lead and win to no avail. Mills scored a narrow victory over Rumsey, sixth-place starter Doug Dodson, seventh-place starter Ken Duke, and Sweigart.

Outside front row starter Keith Bissinger took the lead on the initial start of the roadrunner feature. On a second attempt Bissinger led original third-place starter Jake Jones at the drop of the green flag.

On each subsequent restart, Bissinger and Jones pulled away from the field in a showdown of past champions. The race was stopped on lap seven when Scott Dunham struck the inside backstretch guardrail. He was not injured.

When the race restarted, Bissinger kept Jones at bay for the victory. Seventh-place starter Nate Romig finished in third with a strong showing, followed by Terry Kramer and Adam Campbell in the top five.

Anthony Macri Earns First Win of 2021; Bright goes two in a row as does Hart

PORT ROYAL, PA – Anthony Macri grabbed the lead early and drove off
from there winning the 25-lap Sprint car feature in dominating fashion
Saturday night at Port Royal Speedway.

In other action, it was Alex Bright winning the USAC East Coast 360
Sprint feature, and Devin Hart scoring his second straight limited
late model feature win.

Macri, of Dillsburg, earned $4,000 for his first win of the season
that came by an impressive 7.4-seconds in the non-stop main event for
the Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Cars.

“I was getting worried in lapped traffic,” Macri said. “They were
starting to not play as nice. The first five or six lapped cars just
fell my way. They went the other way and I was able to stay on the
top.”

Macri was Port Royal’s leading feature winner last year, but was
looking for a little more speed so far this season.

“The car hasn’t felt like it was last year in the first couple of
races,” Macri said. “We just kept working and working. I’d say
tonight’s the first night where I felt we were as good as we were last
year.”

Macri is primed for next week’s Keith Kauffman Classic paying $10K
sanctioned by the All Stars.

“It’s definitely a confidence boost going into next week,” Macri said.
“When we first got here, I seen the track wasn’t dug up as much as it
was the weeks before. I knew it would eventually come back to this,
but I didn’t think it would be that close to the wall. It played into
my favor. I like this kind of track. Anybody can go around here in 15
seconds. This is the Port Royal I like.”

“I have all the confidence in the world in Jim (Shuttlesworth) and my
guys. I just have to do my job. I’d say we can beat them.”

Gerard McIntyre Jr. started on the pole and grabbed the lead as Blane
Heimbach took second. Macri started sixth, but was up to third in no
time.

He shot by Heimbach in turns three and four, but Heimbach returned the
pass as they raced down the frontstretch. Macri worked the very top of
the speedway and passed Heimbach off turn two with 18 to go.

Macri caught the leader and shot under him entering turn three. He
slid up in front of him as they raced off turn four taking the lead
with 15 to go.

From there, Macri blasted away from the field increasing his lead even
as he raced up against the fence by slower traffic.

Heimbach looked inside of McIntyre for the runner-up spot, but
couldn’t make it work.

Three-time and defending track champion Logan Wagner had raced into
the top five from the 18th starting spot.

Marci led by 4-seconds with 10 laps to go.

It was Wagner making moves by Heimbach and then McIntyre for the
runner-up spot with five to go. Jeff Halligan and 14th starter Danny
Dietrich also raced into the top five late in the race.

But up front it was all Macri as he cruised to his eighth career Port
Royal win by 7.4 seconds over Wagner and 9-seconds over McIntyre.

“I knew we were pretty good early,” Wagner said. “The guys worked
really hard on this car. It was a disappointment in the heat race for
me personally. We bounced back in the A-main. I was picking cars off.
I didn’t know where I was or who I was racing or what I was going for.
After the checkered, I thought I might have won that, I don’t know.
Then I looked up and seen second. Hats off to those guys, I know they
work really hard. The car was really good, I just positioned myself
bad in the heat race.”

“We’re real happy,” McIntyre said. “We got beat by two of the best
cars at Port Royal, so there’s nothing to hang our heads about. Dennis
gave me a really good car, and sooner or later, I’ll figure out how to
drive it. At the beginning of the race, it really felt good. I have to
figure out what I need to do as a driver at the end of the race to
close them out. I don’t think we were going to beat the 39 and the 1
was fast, too, but I’d like to be able to race with them a little
more. That’s on me. We’ll get it figured out. We’ve had a lot of bad
luck. This is refreshing and hopefully more of these to come.”

Dietrich and Halligan completed the top five. Dylan Cisney, Heimbach,
A.J. Flick, Jason Shultz and Kerry Madsen rounded out the top 10.

Shultz earned the $1,000 J&S Fabrication Warrior Award. Wagner was the
Hard Charger. McIntyre earned $103 from the Port Royal Race Chasers.

Heats for the 36 Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Cars were won by Dylan
Cisney, Anthony Macri, Kerry Madsen and Jeff Halligan. TJ Stutts won
the B Main.

In the USAC East Coast 360 Sprint main event, Alex Bright led Carmen
Perigo Jr. and Colin White on the opening lap. Defending series
champion Steve Drevicki quickly raced into third after starting sixth.
Drevicki took the runner-up spot from Perigo with a pass off turn
four.

As Bright and Drevicki streaked away from the field, a great race for
third developed between five cars.

With 12 laps to go, the leaders were 8-seconds ahead of third place.
They raced in heavy lapped traffic as Drevicki tried to take the lead.
Meanwhile, the battle for third was between Briggs Danner and B-main
winner Kenny Miller Jr.

Miller Jr.’s great run came to an end with a second turn flip with
seven laps to go. He was okay.

Bright, of Collegeville, Pa., controlled the restart pulling away from
Drevicki as the race for third, fourth and fifth continued to be
close.

Colin White’s top five run came to an end as well with a fourth turn
flip with four to go. He was also okay.

The final laps saw Bright leading Drevicki with Joey Biasi challenging
Danner for third.

Bright’s second straight series win at Port Royal came by 4.2-seconds
over Drevicki

“When Drevicki showed his nose, that made me get on it a little bit
harder,” Bright said. “He showed his nose a couple times. I didn’t
completely leave him. I knew I had to stay on it. Right up against the
wall with these non-wing cars is fun. When you’re out in the lead like
that, you don’t know how hard you need to drive or I could have picked
it up and starting making mistakes. The car was underneath me. We were
along the same set-up tonight as last year. We tweaked a couple
things. This car was on rails. I can’t wait to come back here.”

“I felt like I was better than him and could run him down,” Drevicki
said. “It’s hard to pick that spot to be able to clear him with the
momentum we’re carrying around the top. I tried to make a hero out of
myself over here and bent the front axle back and I don’t know what
else. At that point, I had to settle in for second. It’s a good start
to the season and we’ll keep working hard to get that first win. I
felt like I had a good car, but it screwed up my entry when I did
that. I had to be really careful.”

Danner held off Biasi for third. Chris Allen Jr. completed the top
five. Perigo Jr., Damon Paul, Tommy Kunsman, Ed Aiken and Mike
Thompson rounded out the top 10.

Heats for the USAC East Coast 360 sprints were won by Briggs Danner,
Chris Allen Jr and Alex Bright. Kenny Miller III won the B Main.

Kenny Yoder and Donnie Farlling raced side-by-side for the lead on the
opening lap of the Selinsgrove Ford Limited Late Model feature.

A quick yellow with one lap completed slowed the pace.

Port Royal’s Devin Hart was already up to fourth. He took third on the
restart and nearly had second spot before another yellow flew.

Hart passed Farlling down the frontstretch for second following the
restart. He trailed Yoder for a few laps before switching lanes off
turn four making an inside pass for the lead with 13 laps to go.

He survived several restarts from there keeping Yoder behind him.
Defending track champion Andrew Yoder was into third and Todd Snook
moved into the top five during the final laps of the 20-lap main
event.

Hart’s fourth career Port Royal win, and second straight, came by 1.4-seconds.

“You’ve got to ride it while it’s up because it can go down real
quick, I found that out in 2019,” Hart said. “Last year, we struggled
some. I felt like we were good, we just weren’t where we needed to be.
That first race this year, we didn’t run as good as I thought we
would. We went back to our normal last week, and been really good
since, I want to keep it rolling as long as we can.”

K. Yoder, A. Yoder, Snook and Shaun Miller completed the top five.
Troy Miller, Derick Garman, Donnie Farlling, Shawn Shoemaker and Matt
Murphy rounded out the top 10.

Heats for the 32 Selinsgrove Ford Limited Late Models were won by
Donnie Farlling, Devin Hart, Kenny Yoder and Andrew Yoder. JR Toner
won the B Main.

Lance Dewease Continues March Toward History With Win Number 117; Mason Zeigler and Nick Sweigart Score Big As Well

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Penn. (April 4, 2021)- Lance Dewease celebrated Easter a day early by picking up his 117th career Weikert's Livestock 410 Sprint Car victory Saturday night at Port Royal Speedway after starting from the fourth starting position.

The win was Dewease's second of the season at the Juniata County oval and came over a hard charging Logan Wagner and Anthony Macri. Dewease's triumph was worth $4000 and moved him within 12 of all-time track winner Keith Kauffman on the all-time win list.

"I honestly didn't realize I had won that many races here, but it means the everything to me," said Dewease. "We're here to win races and we're not here to run 10th or fifth. We were kind of doing some R&D earlier this year and we're done with that, so we're back to working on our racecar and making it fast to win races."

Jeff Miller and Lynton Jeffrey led the field to the green-flag and it was Miller getting the early jump. However it was Macri on the move early as he used a great start to go from fifth to second on the opening circuit.

One lap later Dewease used the bottom in one and two to overtake Jeffrey for third and carried that momentum into turn three where he slid under Macri for second. It only took two more turn's for Dewease to track down Miller for the lead as he pulled alongside the young gun on the backstretch to take the top spot to lead lap three.

Macri got by Miller for second using the extreme top of the Speedway two laps later and set his sights on Dewease, while eighth-place starter Logan Wagner entered the podium one lap later. Chicora, Pa. native George Hobaugh followed suit into fourth as well.

With clean air in front of him, Dewease was cruising up front. But as he entered lapped traffic on lap eight, Macri and Wagner began closing in on the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame driver. Three laps later Macri had cut the distance in half and Wagner was lurking not far behind.

However the caution flew three laps later when Matt Farnham blew a tire on the Speedway and again gave Dewease open air in front of him. Dewease capitalized on the restart and again took off. Four laps later the final caution of the event flew when TJ Stutts blew a right-rear tire and set up a seven lap dash for the win.

"Anthony and Logan, those guys are pretty quick and they've been really good here all season," said Dewease. "But when the track get slick like this, I just feel really good out there and I felt pretty good about my chances with clean air."

Dewease was flawless on the restart and he again controlled the pace, but Wagner was all over Macri for second as he slid under him for the runner-up position exiting turn two. Macri used a run entering turn three to take the position back headed to the start-finish line and the two drivers swapped positions multiple times over the next two laps. Wagner was finally able to edge ahead to take the runner-up spot with four to go, but the battling allowed Dewease to be in cruise control out front.

All Wagner could do was hope for an Easter miracle, but it wasn't in the cards as Dewease crossed under the line by an advantage of 1.654 seconds to take the checkers. Behind Wagner and Macri, Hobaugh and Jeffrey rounded out the top five.

Mike Wagner, last week's winner Dylan Cisney, Ryan Smith, Jeff Halligan and Kerry Madsen finished out the top-ten. Halligan earned the Valley Supply $200 Hard Charger Award by advancing 13 positions after he was forced to qualify for the feature via the B-main after he broke a left front wheel earlier in the night during a heat race. Justin Whittal earned the $1000 J&S Fabrication Warrior Award presented by Jim & Sandy Kline after Dewease drew the number 17 in victory lane and Macri earned an addition $103 for his third-place finish courtesy of the Port Royal Race Chasers.

"We were pretty good here opening day and last week I put us in a bad position and bent a car up, so this is a new car and it's just been perfect since we rolled it out," said Dewease. "We got ourselves a new Rider engine in the car and it’s ran flawless and it's just been a great start to the year already winning two races and I can't wait for the All Stars here in a couple weeks."

410 Sprint Car Feature Results: 1. Lance Dewease; 2. Logan Wagner; 3. Anthony Macri; 4. George Hobaugh; 5. Lynton Jeffrey; 6. Mike Wagner; 7. Dylan Cisney; 8. Ryan Smith; 9. Jeff Halligan; 10. Kerry Madsen; 11. Jason Shultz; 12. AJ Flick; 13. Jeff Miller; 14. Blane Heimbach; 15. Jared Esh; 16. TJ Stutts; 17. Justin Whittall; 18. Rick Lafferty; 19. Pat Cannon; 20. Michael Bauer; 21.

River Valley Builders Super Late Models

Mason Zeigler scored his fourth career River Valley Builders Super Late Model triumph at the Port Royal Speedway during a caution free feature event over Colton Flinner and Ross Robinson. The win was worth $3000 for the Chalkhill, Pa. native.

"We didn't get a really good start and actually fell back to like fourth on that opening turn, but coming out of two we were in the lead so we have a pretty good piece here," said Zeigler. "We're still real tight and can’t really get around the middle and bottom like we need to, but luckily we were able to get around the top like we need to and here we are."

Austin Berry and Scott Flickinger led the field to the green-flag, but after a chaotic scramble it was Zeigler coming from the third starting spot to lead lap one. By lap five Zeigler held slightly over a two second advantage over fourth starter Mike Lupfer and he looked to be in control of the race.

Last year's track champion, Andy Haus, moved by Lupfer for the runner-up spot one lap later, while seventh start Flinner was on the move and slid into third on lap six. Two laps later Flinner got by Haus for second, but by lap ten Zeigler still held a 2.259 second advantage.

With Zeigler struggling in heavy lapped traffic, Flinner was able to close the gap quickly and with ten laps to go in the 25-lap A-main he ducked under Zeigler and briefly took the lead exiting turn two. However Zeigler used a head of steam down the backstretch to gain momentum in turn's three and four to re-take the lead at the line.

"My guys were signaling to me that I had a nice lead and out of nowhere I saw Colton there under me and he definitely made me pick up the pace there late," said Zeigler. "Luckily we still had a little bit left there in the tank and we were able to fight back and hold him off."

Over the final 10 circuits, Zeigler would again stretch his lead, but with a handful of laps remaining he was buried deep in two-wide lapped traffic. Flinner stayed patient on the bottom of the track and again tried to reel him in. He made several attempts in the middle of turn's one and two to pull even with Zeigler, but Zeigler was too good on the top and powered away.

When he crossed under the checkered flag, he held a .612 advantage. Behind Flinner and Robinson, Dylan Yoder and two-time 2021 winner Gregg Satterlee rounded out the top-five. Tyler Bare, Jeff Rine, Haus, Opening Day winner Trevor Feathers and Nick Dickson finished up the top-ten.

"I was just trying to conserve and keep my tires under me there for a while, but once I caught those lapped cars they were battling hard in front of me and I didn’t want to push the issue if I didn’t need to," said Zeigler. "I just had to just get up and defend around the top and hopefully lapped traffic would play into our favor once Colton showed us his nose. The car was good and we're going home winners in one piece and we'll come back next week."

Justin Weaver picked up the $200 George's Used Cars Inc. Hard Charger Award by passing nine cars enroot to a 15th-place finish.

Super Late Model Feature Results: 1. Mason Zeigler; 2. Colton Flinner; 3. Ross Robinson; 4. Dylan Yoder; 5. Gregg Satterlee; 6. Tyler Bare; 7. Jeff Rine; 8. Andy Haus; 9. Trevor Feathers; 10. Nick Dickson; 11. Gary Stuhler; 12. Mike Lupfer; 13. Kyle Knapp; 14. Austin Berry; 15. Justin Weaver; 16. Jon Lee; 17. Scott Flickinger; 18. Jim Yoder; 19. Roy Deese; 20. Andrew Yoder; 21. Tim Wilson; 22. Jamie Lathroum; 23. Trent Brenneman; 24. Billy Wampler.

Penns Valley Meat Market PA Sprint Series 305 Sprint Cars

Nick Sweigart powered forward from the fifth starting position to claim his fifth career Penns Valley Meat Market PA Sprint Series 305 Sprint Car victory at Port Royal Speedway Saturday night.

The win moved him into a five-driver tie for fourth all-time on the win list at the Speedway in the division with Logan Wagner, Mark Watkins, Mike Wagner II and Tyler Reeser.

"It was a lot of fun out there racing with those guys," said Sweigart. "It was hard racing, but it was good racing and we put it all together."

Austin Reed and last year's track champion Garrett Bard led the field to the green flag with Bard jumping out to the early lead. Third-place starter Dave Grube moved into second on the opening circuit and exiting turn two it appeared he was going to overtake Bard for the top-spot when two cars got together on the frontstretch and brought out the red-flag to negate the pass.

Bard set the pace on the restart and on lap five, Grube again pulled alongside of the leader and this time was able to pull ahead slightly at the line to lead the lap. However, it was short lived up top for Grube as Sweigart was in heavy pursuit on the top of the track and he got around Bard for second on lap seven and then cruised around Grube for the lead on lap eight.

Grube fought back on the inside to lead lap nine, but again Sweigart used momentum on the top side to exit turn four the following circuit to lead lap 10. One lap later the leaders hit lapped traffic and from there all Sweigart had to do was stay patient.

Grube tried his hardest, but the night belonged to Sweigart as he crossed under the checkered flag by an advantage of 3.679 seconds. After Grube and Bard, Justin Clark and Ken Duke rounded out the top-five. Devin Adams, Reed, Nick Tucker, Drew Young and Doug Dodson completed the top-ten.

"We had some issues earlier in the night with the fuel pump and we kind overcame that to get here," said Sweigart. "We've come so close these last few years to coming out and winning our first night out and I just said this is going to be the year and I'm thrilled."

305 Sprint Cars Feature Results: 1. Nick Sweigart; 2. Dave Grube; 3. Garrett Bard; 4. Justin Clark; 5. Ken Duke; 6. Devin Adams; 7. Austin Reed; 8. Nick Tucker; 9. Drew Young; 10. Doug Dodson; 11.

Abbottstown, PA (April 3, 2021) – Going into Saturday night, Billy Dietrich’s last win at Lincoln came in 2016, so to say he was hungry for a win would have been an understatement. Billy jumped out to the lead at the start and as the laps wound down it looked like he would wire the field in a non-stop race, but debris on the track brought out a caution with 8 laps to go. Billy crossed the line ahead of his younger brother, Danny, with the fans on their feet to claim his third career win at the track.

The night started with time trials for the Gene Latta Ford 410 Sprint Cars with Robbie Kendall setting quick time putting down a lap of 13.409 seconds. The PA Speedweek format was followed, lining up the fastest car in each heat fourth. From each heat race, the winner and the fastest car that qualified made the redraw for the 30-lap feature.

Chad Trout picked the number one pill to start on the pole with Billy lined up to his outside. Danny and Troy Wagaman shared the second row for the feature start.

Trout and Billy raced side-by-side into turn 3 with Trout on the bottom. Billy took the lead coming out turn 4 using the high line. Wagaman was running third and set his sight on Trout.

Danny was running fourth and Chase Dietz worked his way into the top five after starting eighth.

Billy had a 3.113 second lead on lap 7 as he closed in on lapped traffic. Danny had reeled in Wagaman and was battling hard for third. Danny slid Wagaman in turns 3 and 4 to take the spot on lap 9.

Troy got him back coming out of turn 2 and Dietz was there to battle Dietrich for fourth. Dietz got by Danny on lap 13 to claim the fourth spot.

Dietz then got by Wagaman coming out of turn 2. Wagaman battled back but Dietz held the third spot at the line.

Danny got by Wagaman for fourth on lap 17 and made quick work of Dietz taking third on the next lap.

Danny was hunting down Trout for second when the yellow flag came out on lap 22 for debris on the track.

Billy paced the field slowly, ahead of Trout, Danny, Dietz and Wagaman for the restart.

All of the leaders went to the bottom in turn 1 except Danny, who got by Trout for second.

Danny tried a middle line in turns 1 and 2 on lap 26 to try and take the lead from his brother but could not make the pass. Danny was trying everything to get by Billy and tried a slider in turns 3 and 4 but still couldn’t get around Billy. As the laps wound down, Danny was making contact with the wall in turn 2, allowing Billy to pull away ever so slightly.

Billy got to the checkered flag 1.123 seconds ahead of Danny. Trout held on to finish third and Dietz crossed the line fourth. Wagaman completed the top five.

Heat race winners were Danny Dietrich, Tim Shaffer and Troy Wagaman. Chase Dietz was the hard charger, driving from his 10th starting spot to a fourth place finish.

Jeff Rohrbaugh Adds to 358 Win Record

Jeff Rohrbaugh added to his already impressive 358 sprint win total on Saturday night, making it 17 wins for the leader of the all-time win list.

Rookie-driver, Riley Emig sat on the pole for the 20-lap feature with defending champion Cody Fletcher lined up second.

From his fourth starting spot, Rohrbaugh got up to second with a strong start. Emig led the field with Rohrbaugh getting a nose under Emig in turn 3. Emig used the outside to hold the lead at the line. Fletcher and Jon Stewart battled for fourth and were side-by-side at the line with Fletcher having the slight advantage.

Emig used a higher line around the track to hold off the veteran driver, Rohrbaugh. Rohrbaugh took the lead from the rookie by a nose at the line on lap 4. Emig stayed within striking distance of Rohrbaugh with Brett Strickler running in third.

The caution flag waved on lap 6 for Cody Fletcher. Fletcher had fire shooting out from under his car the previous lap and dropped oil on the track. Fletcher remained running and held on to his fourth spot.

Rohrbaugh led Emig, Brett, Fletcher and Stewart to the cone for the restart.

Rohrbaugh used the bottom of turns 1 and 2 to pull away from the field. Brett held off Fletcher as he challenged for third. The yellow flag came out again on lap 9 when Emig spun in turn 2. Emig had been running second.

Brett, Fletcher, Stewart and Jordan Strickler lined up behind Rohrbaugh for the single-file restart.

Brett tried to get a run on Rohrbaugh in turns 3 and 4 to no avail. Rohrbaugh entered lapped traffic with five laps to go. Brett was closing in on the leader until lapped traffic took away the high line in turns 3 and 4 where Brett was getting a good run.

Rohrbaugh crossed the line 1.117 ahead of Brett for his 17th career Lincoln Speedway win. Fletcher finished third and Stewart crossed the line fourth. Jordan completed the top five.

358 sprint car heat races were won by Jon Stewart, Jordan Strickler and Jeff Rohrbaugh. Justin Foster was the hard charger advancing from his 20th starting spot to a 14th place finish.

Dueces Wild! Cisney and Rine Score Victories in Sprint Car and Super Late Model Competition; Devin Hart Wins Limited Late Model Feature

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Penn. (March 28, 2021)- Dylan Cisney has been knocking on the door of a win all season at Port Royal Speedway. After a third on Opening Day and a fourth last week, Cisney finally kicked down the down the door as he claimed the victory Saturday night over Jeff Halligan and Danny Dietrich.

The win was worth $4000 and was Cisney's fifth of his career at the Juniata County oval that sits only a few blocks from his home. Logan Wagner and Mike Wagner rounded out the rest of the top five.

"I wasn't sure how this thing was going to play out as it was really fast when we first got here," said Cisney. "The track was really in between during the heat races and luckily it slicked off. I don't know how good we were, but ultimately we were good enough to end up in victory lane and I just love this place so much."

Cisney, driving a number two sprinter owned by Scott Cowman instead of his family owned number five, lined up from the pole position alongside of Jeff Miller and got the early jump to lead lap one.

Seventh-place starter AJ Flick was on the move early as he moved into fifth on the first lap and two laps later he slid into fourth. Ninth-place starter Danny Dietrich also was on the move early as he entered the top-five on lap four.

After dropping back on the initial start, Anthony Macri got hooked up on the top of the speedway and he moved into fourth on lap eight. The following lap he cruised around Flick for third exiting turn two, but he lost a right wheel due to a mechanical issue and spun and collected Flick to bring out the red flag. Flick tipped over on his side as a result of the contact, but was ok. Neither driver would return.

Gerrard McIntyre Jr. slowed on the backstretch on the restart, which caused Blane Heimbach and Tyler Bear to spin in turn in turn two to bring out the second caution. All three drivers returned to action at the rear of the field.

Cisney again jumped out to a lead at the return to green-flag action, while Pat Cannon overtook Miller for the runner up spot down the backstretch. Cisney was pulling away from the field when a third caution flew on lap 11 when Miller made contact made contact with the outside guardrail in turn four and hit Kerry Madsen's right rear, causing the Australian to lose a tire as well. Madsen had moved from his 13th starting spot to the top-five before the incident and would rejoin the field.

Cisney again got a great jump on the restart and it was 11th-place starter Halligan making his move as he entered the top-five for the first time. Two laps later he moved past TJ Stutts for fourth and the following circuit he used the bottom of turn four to pass Dietrich for third. All momentum was halted the following lap when McIntyre slowed on the front stretch to bring out the final caution of the race.

Continuing to show his dominance, Cisney again took off on the restart, while Halligan cruised around Cannon to move into the runner-up position. Halligan was closing in on Cisney, but with five laps to go Cisney still held a nearly 1.5 second advantage. Dietrich and Halligan soon were battling it out for the second spot, allowing Cisney to stretch his lead over the remaining laps.

When the checkered flag flew, Cisney held a 1.5554 second advantage as he made it three different winners in three consecutive weeks to being the season at the Juniata County oval.

"This is really good, especially getting Scott Cowman a win here in Pennsylvania," said Cisney. "We can check that off the bucket list. Hopefully he keeps me as a driver and doesn't retire and say the heck with it because we got him a win too early."

For Halligan, he believes his team just needs to get more consistent to be sitting in victory lane,

"I'm pretty pleased somewhat, but I just feel like we could be a lot better," said Halligan. "We're hitting here, missing there, and just haven’t put a whole night together. We got lucky with a few crashes that put us in position and we took advantage of it."

Last weeks winner Justin Peck finished sixth, while Cannon, Madsen, Lucas Wolfe and Stutts rounded out the top ten. Logan Wagner earned a $500 hard charger bonus courtesy of Valley Supply Inc. and Mike Cleck paving by advancing 13 positions in the feature while Stutts earned the $1000 Warrior Award bonus courtesy of Jim and Sandy Kline and J&S Fabrication with the ransom draw number coming up 10.

Sprint Car Feature Finish: 1. Dylan Cisney; 2. Jeff Halligan; 3. Danny Dietrich; 4. Logan Wagner; 5. Mike Wagner; 6. Justin Peck; 7. Pat Cannon; 8. Kerry Madsen; 9. Lucas Wolfe; 10. T.J. Stutts; 11.

Jeff Rine capitalized on a lap nine restart to take the lead and claim the $3000 to win River Valley Builders Super Late Model feature over Rick Eckert and Gary Stuhler. The win was Rine's 26th of his career at the Speedway.

"This is one of the first races that my dad missed and I know he's watching at home but it’s not the same without him here," said Rine. "We had some issues in warm ups, but we got it figured out and we beat one of the best late model drivers in Rick, so this is pretty cool."

Dave Brouse Jr. and Nick Dickson led the field to the green flag and it was Dickson getting the early jump. He was leading comfortably when Ross Robinson slowed on the backstretch to bring out the caution on lap eight.

One the restart, Rine, who started fourth, got underneath Dickson and he took the lead. Sixth=place starter Eckert edged ahead of Dickson for second at the line as well. However, the field was bunched up after a six-car pile up exiting turn two brought out the caution.

With Rine running the middle of the track and Eckert running the top, Eckert was slowly closing in on the leader. He tried the bottom of the speedway in turn's one and two to pull alongside of Rine, but Rine pulled away down the backstrech.

With five to go, Rine entered lap traffic and Eckert was again trying to mount a comeback. With two laps remaining, Eckert was all over the leader. However Rine remained steady and held off the veteran by an advantage of .438 seconds for the victory. Behind Eckert and Stuhler, who started 10th, Dylan Yoder and Trevor Feathers rounded out the top-five.

"If Rick had gotten to the lead first I don’t know if I'd have passed him honestly," said Rine. "This surface is just phenomenal and we were able to kind of search around and I'm just glad to be able to hold him off and get the win."

Max Blair finish in sixth and he also earned the $300 hard charger award courtesy of George's Used Cars Inc. Colton Flinner, Jason Covert, Robinson and Dickson rounded out the top-ten.

Peck And Blair Wire For Williams Grove Wins As Both Drivers Net Career Firsts At Track

3/26/21

Mechanicsburg – Justin Peck of Mooresville, Indiana, wired the field for the 410 sprint car victory at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, taking a $5,500 score for his first ever oval victory.

At the wheel of the Buch No. 13, Peck withstood three restarts with TJ Stutts on his tail to pick up the victory.

In the 30-lap ULMS Super Late Model main, Max Blair of Centerville took the win, likewise to record his first ever oval checkers as well.

Peck drew the number two pill to start the 25-lap sprint car main and jetted out to the lead when action began, already entering the rear of the field with just five laps in the book.

The pace was lightning-quick on the early season surface and Peck had a three-second lead over Stutts when Tyler Courtney spun in the second corner one lap shy of the halfway point.

Another caution flag bunched the field a lap later, this time for a stopped Robbie Kendall on the frontstretch.

Peck then hit traffic again with three laps to go but had the field covered and he was racing onto the frontstretch for the checkers when instead he saw the yellow flag flash over the field, setting up a one-lap dash to the finish.

Peck drove easily to the win by 1.337 seconds over Stutts while 14th starter Tim Shaffer tried for third on the final restart.

Shaffer tried to bolt outside of Chase Dietz in the first corner when green replaced the yellow but despite a blistering effort, he failed to gain the spot.

Steve Buckwalter finished fifth after riding inside the top five during the entire event.

Sixth through 10th went to Freddie Rahmer, Kyle Reinhardt, Ryan Taylor, Danny Dietrich and Kerry Madsen.

Heats went to Peck, Stutts and Anthony Macri with the consolation going to Lucas Wolfe.

“My guys had this 13 rolling,” said Peck.

We seem to hit it pretty well lately. Every time we hit the track, it’s fast and moving forward.”

“It feels good to be standing on the frontstretch here,” Peck said.

In the 30-lap main event for ULMS late models, it was Blair who grabbed the lead over Andy Haus and Coleby Frye.

The first yellow flag flew with 14 laps completed, erasing Blair’s 1.284-second lead.

Blair controlled the restart as Frye challenged Haus for second with Kyle Lee not far behind.

The yellow flew again with 12 laps to go.

Jason Covert then grabbed fourth on the restart from Lee as Blair pulled away.

Frye finally grabbed second from Haus with 2 laps to go before Covert also passed Haus.

Blair’s $3,000 win came by 1.769 over Frye, Covert, Haus and Dylan Yoder. Lee, Shaun Jones, Gene Knaub, Justin Weaver and Ryan Scott rounded out the top 10.

Bryan Bernheisel set quick time over the 22-car field with a lap of 20.105 seconds however at the start of the first heat race he barrel rolled his No. 119 through the first corner and out over the guardrail, to exit the speedway.

Mike Lupfer, Blair and Dylan Yoder won the heat races.
