Williams Grove Season Opener Is March 17 With 410 Sprints And Sportsman

Will invaders continue to dominate opening days of the 2020s?

2/18/24

Mechanicsburg – Williams Grove Speedway is just one month away from dropping the green flag on its 80th consecutive season of auto racing when the 2024 season opener for Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint cars takes to the track on Sunday, March 17 at 2 pm.

The sprint cars will race for $5,500 to win in a 25-lap feature on opening day, presented by Hoosier.

Gates will open at noon with practice laps slated for 1:30.

The wingless super sportsman will also be on the Sunday afternoon card that will herald in the new season at the Cumberland County oval.

Zeb Wise of Angola, Indiana, scored a last lap, upset win of the opening day sprint car feature last season.

Wise drove by Anthony Macri on the final tour to get the victory on April 7.

The win by Wise continued what has been a domination of sorts by invaders this decade in the Williams Grove season opener.

Three of the last four lidlifters have been taken by outside invaders.

California outlaws driver Carson Macedo dropped in for opening day laurels in 2020 with Indianans Justin Peck and Wise following suit in 2022 and 2023.

Only defending track champion Freddie Rahmer has broken through in the decade to date by scoring the 2021 opening day checkers.

So, who might walk through the door in 2024?

Will the outside domination continue?

Or will the locals be able to even the score a bit?

The question will be answered with the first checkered flag of the new season on March 17.

Adult general admission for the first show of the new year is set at $20 with youth ages 13 – 20 priced at $10.

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

Keep up to date on all the latest speedway news and information and view the full 2024 schedule of events by visiting the oval’s official website located at www.williamsgrove.com. Follow the track on X, Facebook and Instagram.

Port Royal Speedway and Weikert Livestock Increase Bob Weikert Memorial Purse and Winner's Share to $75K

Port Royal, PA - Port Royal Speedway is excited to partner with Todd Weikert and Weikert Livestock for an increased purse for the Bob Weikert Memorial which includes an increase in the winner's share to $75,000.

"I've been wanting to increase that purse. I didn't know how to go about it or what I wanted to do but as I went on the last couple of years and dwelled on it, and High Limit coming along and the success of our race the last few years...I think it's fitting for sprint car racing to offset the cost for some of these owners and make for better competition," said Todd Weikert of Weikert Livestock.

The increase in purse for the Bob Weikert Memorial now adds to the already high paying schedule for the High Limit Racing season which now boasts over 26 total races paying over $20,000 to win and 6 of at least $50,000 to win including both the Bob Weikert Memorial and Tuscarora 50 at Port Royal Speedway.

The event now pays a minimum $2,000 to start, will include a B-Main purse, and other contingencies for drivers and teams throughout the May 25th & 26th event.

Ticket sales for the event are coming soon and will be available for purchase, at a later date, both at portroyalspeedway.com and highlimitracing.com.

 

 

Lincoln Speedway to Introduce Virtual Flagman for the 2024 Season; Continuing to Bring Innovation to Central PA Racing Scene

Abbottstown, PA (January 24, 2024) – Lincoln Speedway is excited to introduce the virtual flagman to Central PA racing. Starting with the Ice Breaker Weekend, February 24-25, Lincoln Speedway will implement a state of the art virtual flagman system that will include lighting and message boards around the speedway to alert drivers and fans of important situations on the track. This technology has been implemented at tracks around the world and Lincoln Speedway will be the first track to utilize this proven system in Central PA.

In addition to the virtual system, there will be flaggers and safety personnel on the inside of the track in the corners and on the front straightaway. The virtual system will be run from the scoring tower.

“When you take a step back and look at it, we are removing two individuals from a hazardous environment that were an extension of the scoring tower. We are modernizing a system that was already in place,” is how General Manager, Jerry Parrish is looking at the change. “Lincoln was the first track in Central PA to utilize a jumbotron and now other tracks have them and the World of Outlaws bring one on their tour. We are always looking at opportunities to bring innovation to a sport that has been slow to take on change.”

For the first few weeks of the season there will be a flagger in the main flag stand to help adjust to the change and to work through any unexpected situations.

“The safety of the drivers and officials is our number one priority and putting this system in place continues our efforts towards that goal,” shared Parrish.

Lincoln Speedway will kick-off the 2024 season with the Ice Breaker Weekend on February 24 & 25 with racing scheduled at 3PM both days. Both races pay $5,000 to win and are 410 sprint car only shows. Pit gates will open at 12:30PM and Grandstands gates open at 1PM. Adult general admission is $20, student general admission (12-17) is $10 and general admission for kids 11 and under is free. Pit passes are $35.

Located in Abbottstown, PA, the 3/8th-mile high-banked clay oval has been a staple in professional auto racing for 70 years. The Pigeon Hills oval is one of several famed Central Pennsylvania race tracks which represent the toughest, most competitive weekly sprint car racing in the nation. A family fun night to be had by all who visit the famed Lincoln Speedway! To get all the latest news, results, schedule changes and rule changes and to stay up-to-date on all the action or pending weather conditions at Central Pennsylvania’s “Premier” Saturday night racetrack – The Fabulous Lincoln Speedway - visit Lincoln Speedway’s website at http://www.lincolnspeedway.com

BAPS Releases 2024 Nine-Race 410 Sprint Car Schedule

YORK HAVEN, Pa.: Central Pennsylvania is known for Sprint Car racing, and BAPS Motor Speedway has become a big part of the landscape in the region.

On the heels of a successful season, the York Haven, Pa., facility has put together an interesting schedule for 2024 that is highlighted by nine Sprint Car dates, including a return visit by the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series.

“Sprint Car racing is the biggest draw in central Pennsylvania,” BAPS Motor Speedway General Manager Kolten Gouse said. “It’s important for us to be a part of that and give fans another venue to see one of dirt-track racing’s premier divisions.

“I think BAPS Motor Speedway is unique. It’s not as small as some other places, but there are times it races like a short track. There always seems to be a battle somewhere in the field during a main event, and I think the guys like coming here.”

The first visit by the 410 Sprint Cars takes place on March 24 and is sponsored by Pressurized H2O. The program will also feature the 358 Sprints with a start time of 4 p.m.

A pair of programs highlight the April schedule. McSherrystown Moose Lodge Night on April 14 will feature the 410 Sprints, 358 Late Models and Wingless Super Sportsman. Two weeks later, the 410 Sprints will join the 358 Modifieds on Spring Valley Mulch Night on April 28.

After a short break, the 410 Sprints return for UPMC Night presented by CH Recovery on May 19. The event is a preview to one of the top events on the schedule, Engler Machine and Tool Pennsylvania Speedweek presented by Hoseheads.com on June 30. The Super Sportsman are also on the program.

A year ago, David Gravel wowed the crowd in a thrilling World of Outlaws victory over Brad Sweet. He will get a chance to back up the win when the series visits the track on July 24 for the Bricker’s French Fries Bash.

“It was important to bring Speedweek and the World of Outlaws back to the speedway,” Gouse said. “Both shows were really good last year, and we hope to build on both events in 2024.

“The World of Outlaws brand is huge in this sport. Bringing the series to your track shows that you are doing something right, and it’s really expanded the footprint of BAPS Motor Speedway, both locally and on a national level.”

The prestigious HVAC Distributors Inc. Kevin Gobrecht Classic is back on September 21. There is a twist to this year’s event, as Twin 20s for the 410 Sprints will headline. The Super Sportsman will also be on the program.
A pair of shows complete the season. The EK Services Britton Finkenbinder Memorial presented by Denk Electric featuring the 410 Sprints, Wingless Super Sportsman, and Extreme Stocks takes place on Oct. 26. Three weeks later, the Heavy Equipment and Loaders Sprint Showdown caps the season with a show of 410 Sprints, 358 Modifieds, and Enduro 50.

Eight of the nine 410 Sprint Car shows can be seen on SprintCarUnlimited.TV. The July World of Outlaws event will be on DIRTVision.

“We’ve had a successful relationship with SprintCarUnlimited.TV,” Gouse said. “Pay-Per-View/Streaming have become an important part of this sport, and they have done a good job bringing our races to fans who can’t be at the track.

“We are excited for the start of the 2024 season. We feel we have a good schedule in place and are anxious to kick off another year of racing at BAPS Motor Speedway.”

Lincoln Speedway is Set for an Action Packed 2024 Season

Abbottstown, PA (December 21, 2023) – The 2024 season schedule for Pennsylvania’s Lincoln Speedway features a new event, new divisions, familiar favorites and exciting upgrades.

Lincoln will take center stage during Pennsylvania Speedweek with the $25,000 to win Kevin Gobrecht Memorial. Thanks to Commonwealth Truck Supply and Goofy’s Eatery & Spirits, the 25th annual edition of the race will be the highest paying winner’s share in Speedweek history. The Monday Speedweek race will pay an impressive $10,000 to win.

After unfavorable weather at the end of last season, the rescheduled $20,000 to win 20th Annual Weldon Sterner Memorial for 410 sprints will take place on April 20. The race sponsored by Chuck’s Auto Parts Solutions will also feature the 358 sprints.

A new addition to the 2024 schedule is the Labor Day Duel presented by Schmuck Lumber Company on September 1. The night before Lincoln will host the Labor Day Duel Prelim to make it a two-day event over the holiday weekend. Stay tuned to Lincoln’s social media and website for more details on this new and exciting event.

The season will kick-off with the two-day Ice Breaker Weekend presented by Tyson Fence on February 24 and 25. Both races pay $5,000 to win and are a 410 sprint car only show.

The first new division to be featured in 2024 is the PA Micro Midgets on Saturday, March 2. They will be joined by the 410 sprint cars. The 358 sprints make their season debut the following week on Saturday, March 16.

The World of Outlaws “Gettysburg Clash” returns on Wednesday, May 8. Last year Anthony Macri scored the win for the PA Posse after three years of the traveling series taking bragging rights in the biggest rivalry in sprint car racing.

Another exciting addition to the schedule this year is the Mason Dixon 270 division on July 6 as a part of Crownstone Equipment Night. They will be joined by the Legends, Flying Iron Limited Stocks and Classic Cars.

Lincoln Speedway will host 16 different divisions, with 32 dates for the 410 sprints and 18 dates for the 358 sprints. The super late models will make two appearances including “Appalachian Mountain Speedweek” on June 15.

Along with the new additions to the schedule, many familiar and popular dates will be back for 2024. “Fallen Firefighters Night” is slated for May 18. The $7,300 to win “Kramer Klash” presented by HVAC Distributors is back on August 24. One of Lincoln’s newer events that is quickly becoming a fan and driver favorite is the “Rack Daddies Rumble” presented by L&M Tire & Wheel which is scheduled for August 3 in 2024. Also back in 2024 are the Bob Leiby Memorial on May 25, Steve Smith Tribute Race on June 1, Dean’s Auto Plaza Night on July 13, DCS School of Driving Night on August 10 and the Barry Skelly Memorial on August 17. The season will conclude with the “Night of Champions” on Saturday, October 19.

In addition, there will be special shows featuring kids “Big Wheel” racing, and several auto racing “club” nights. The entire 2024 schedule is available online at www.lincolnspeedway.com/schedule and attached to this release.

Located in Abbottstown, PA, the 3/8th-mile high-banked clay oval has been a staple in professional auto racing for 70 years.

BAPS PA Speedweek Event to Pay $10,000 to Win

YORK HAVEN, Pa.: There was very little hesitation when BAPS Motor Speedway General Manager Kolten Gouse received a phone call from Pennsylvania Speedweek Organizer Alan Kreitzer.

The conversation centered around the 10-race Speedweek series becoming bigger and better, and Gouse was all in and ready to do his part.

Gouse and BAPS Motor Speedway Owner Scott Gobrecht are always looking to enhance the York Haven, Pa., speedway’s schedule. So, it was an easy decision to make the Engler Machine and Tool PA Speedweek presented by Hoseheads.com bigger and better in 2024 by increasing the first-place check to $10,000.

“Pennsylvania Speedweek has become one of the staples in this region,” Gouse said. “I think it’s important to continue to make this series better for drivers, teams, and fans who support it every year.

“This is our way of helping to add to Speedweek. This also gives us a chance to make a race on our schedule even bigger and increase the BAPS Motor Speedway brand.”

The Super Sportsman will also be on the Sunday, July 30 program. Pit gates open at 4 p.m., with grandstands opening at 5 p.m. Racing is at 7 p.m. Adults are $30, with seniors getting a ticket for $20. Students are $15.

To celebrate Pennsylvania Speedway, the first 100 fans through the gate wearing a BAPS Motor Speedway T-Shirt will receive a free $5 gift card to be used at the speedway concession stand.

Brent Marks was the winner of the 2021, with rain wiping out the 2022 race. Anthony Macri is the defending champion of the event.

“It’s an honor to be part of Pennsylvania Speedweek, and we are proud to be on the schedule,” Gouse said. “The 2021 and 2023 events were a success with good racing and a nice fan turnout, and we look forward to making it bigger and better this year.”

Tribute races in 2024 will honor car owner John Trone and racing brothers Darren and Cris Eash along with their car-owner father, David Eash.

Port Royal Speedway

 PORT ROYAL, PA – For the third straight season, longtime car owners and supporters of the Central Pennsylvania race scene, Jim and Sandy Kline will be the official sponsors of the Port Royal Speedway “Warrior Award” for the 2024 race season.

The “Warrior Award” will allow some lucky sprint car driver each week to pocket a cool $1000 in cash and will benefit those who finish farther back in the field. A winner will be drawn weekly at random in victory lane. For all regular weekly 410 Sprint Car Weikert’s Livestock events, the numbers eligible will be from 7 to 24 and whoever finishes in the position number drawn will receive $1000 as that week’s winner. For all of the High Limit Racing events and the two Pennsylvania Speedweek shows the numbers will represent positions 11 to 24.

J & S Classics is a custom street rod build business created by the Kline's that combines Jim's love of custom street rod cars and a continued support of motorsports. The shop has a full fabrication shop and is equipped with a spray shop as well to complete the custom builds.

The Kline's, through this award, have given over $30,000 out to different teams and a multitude of drivers. Their continued support of the speedway is crucial and Steve O'Neal and the team are thankful for their continued support.

We at Port Royal Speedway also ask that fans, drivers, and teams alike keep the Kline family in their thoughts and prayers as the Kline's have been dealing with some health struggles recently. We wish Jim and Sandy the best over the coming weeks and look forward to having them back at the Speed Palace for Opening Day!

Doug Hammaker Is Two-Time Williams Grove 358 Sprint Track Titlist

10/15/23

Mechanicsburg – Doug Hammaker of Grantville has been crowned the 2023 HJ Towing & Recovery 358 sprint car champion at Williams Grove Speedway.

Hammaker capped off the season and picked up the title on September 22.

It is the second track title for the driver of the No. 66H who took his first track crown in 2019.

Along the way, Hammaker scored one victory at Williams Grove, on May 19.

In addition the pilot wheeled to a trio of runner-ups plus a third, fourth, seventh, 10th and 12th place finish.

Hammaker ended the season with an average feature finish of 4.7 in the nine total events contested at the track this year.

Completing the top five in the Williams Grove point standings was Kody Hartlaub, Steve Owings, defending champion Derek Locke and Chris Frank.

Hammaker also picked up the 2023 MacMor Construction Summer Series title for 358 sprints that was contested among several area tracks.

Kyle Spence of Bridgeton, New Jersey earned Rookie of the Year honors for 2023 at Williams Grove.

Spence drove to a victory at the track on August 18.

Zeb Wise is continuing along a path to Sprint Car stardom.

Only a few weeks ago, the Angola, IN native finalized his first All-Star Circuit of Champions (ASCoC) title. But even with 13 ASCoC wins and a championship under his belt, a World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car win had eluded him.

Until Saturday night. Entering the World of Outlaws vs. PA Posse battle as an Indiana invader, Wise earned the pole for the 30-lap Feature at Port Royal Speedway. The 20-year-old slipped to second early before rallying to move by a Pennsylvania legend and held off one of his closest friends to make his first trip to Victory Lane with The Greatest Show on Dirt and pocket $15,000.

As with any first time World of Outlaws winner, emotion spilled over after the checkered flag. In only his 23rd career Feature start with the Series, Wise drove the Rudeen Racing #26 to his first win. And not only did Wise collect his first victory, he also brought Kevin Rudeen’s team their first Series triumph since 2011, 4,418 days ago, when Sam Hafertepe Jr. topped a World of Outlaws visit to Skagit Speedway.

“It’s been a long road,” Wise said. “I remember my first few Outlaw races. One of them was actually here, and I had no clue what I was doing. I was definitely out in left field. And coming back here as many times as I’ve been here, I’ve gotten really comfortable here. And this is always a place I love coming to but always seemed to struggle at… Last night we didn’t really have a good showing. We came back and were really strong out of the gate, so I’m just very proud of our team.”

Wise’s win completed an Indiana invader sweep of the weekend at “The Speed Palace” as fellow Hoosier and ASCoC competitor – Tyler Courtney – topped Friday’s portion of the Nittany Showdown. Wise also became the third first time World of Outlaws winner this season, joining Brady Bacon and Corey Day. With Wise’s triumph, 152 different drivers have now won a World of Outlaws Feature, and Wise is the 12th to do so from the state of Indiana.

The path to Victory Lane was by no means an easy one. After winning the Toyota Racing Dash, Wise started the main event on the pole, but it was Lance Dewease rolling by Wise on the bottom to lead the first lap.

After Dewease grabbed the top spot, the Fayetteville, PA native established a solid gap between himself and Wise in the early going, and the margin stabilized around one second. As Dewease rolled the bottom and middle aboard the Macri Motorsports #39M, the distance between the two stayed roughly the same through much of the first half of the race. It was just before the halfway mark when Wise began to flex his muscle.

Wise started to build momentum by ripping the cushion through Turns 1 and 2 to create a massive run down the back straightaway. On the 16th lap, that line allowed Wise to close on Dewease’s tail tank. Three laps later, Wise used the high side to blast by Dewease exiting Turn 2.

“I knew Lance wasn’t going to go to the top in (Turns) 1 and 2, but he was just high enough on entry where it was really hard for me to get into the corner good enough to clear him off of (Turn) 2. I got close multiple times and just didn’t want to show my nose too early and put us in a bad spot for later. So, I kind of took my time, and I knew we had a really fast race car. Even right after Lap 1 when I was in second, I figured we’d have a shot at it for sure.”
Zeb Wise races ahead of Lance DeceaseWise might’ve had the lead with only 10 laps to go, but the race was far from over. Dewease surged back to his inside over the next couple laps in a bid to regain the lead. And when those efforts came up short, a new challenger arose.

All the way from the 10th starting spot, Tyler Courtney passed Dewease on the 25th circuit as the Indianapolis, IN native was eying a weekend sweep. Wise had to fend off Courtney to secure an All-Star title with Rudeen Racing, and he’d be forced to hold off the same driver with his first World of Outlaws win on the line.

Courtney began to close in aboard the Clauson Marshall Racing/NOS Energy Drink #7BC, trimming Wise’s lead from a second nearly down to half a second in two laps. But with two laps to go, Wise pieced together a strong enough trip around the half mile to pull slightly ahead and make for a comfortable final lap as he locked up a win he’ll never forget with his close friend following him to the line.

“It’s really cool,” Wise said. “Me and Tyler have an awesome relationship. Obviously, we were teammates a handful of years back. It makes it even more special to be able to battle toe to toe like this it seems like every night. He was way ahead of us last night. But tonight I looked up and saw he was in third of fourth on one of those restarts and figured he was going to be coming. It’s really cool for us to be able to go head-to-head like this and have fun.”

Courtney came home second, narrowly missing a weekend sweep after his Friday victory. While he would’ve liked to go back to back, he was happy to run second to Wise and see him reach the major career accomplishment.

“Every time I’d get to him with my wing that far back I would kind of just lose my nose just a little bit right at the entry of the corner just kind of slip by grip a little bit,” Courtney said. “I tried the middle there coming to the checkered, and I should’ve moved up there about five laps before that. But I had made all my ground there on the bottom and felt like if I could hit my marks I was better than him down there, but it wasn’t meant to be tonight. It’s cool to see him win. He’s had a hell of a year. I know how special those first ones are.”

And rounding out the top three was Shark Racing’s Logan Schuchart as he led the way for the World of Outlaws regulars. The result marked Schuchart’s 14th Series podium of the season as he methodically worked his way forward from eighth.

“We just slowly but surely moved the wing back and were able to run through the middle,” Schuchart said. “It wasn’t like you could just pound the fence or anything, so I don’t know what the cars were doing behind me or even the cars up front. I just felt like I had to pull the wing back, float through the middle, and just work on each car that was in front of us lap by lap. Slowly, we just kind of picked them off.”

David Gravel and Lance Dewease completed the top five.

David Gravel grabbed his 13th Simpson Performance Products QuickTime of the year and 110th of his career.

CASE No.1 Engine Oil Heat Race One was claimed by Zeb Wise. NOS Energy Drink Heats Two through Four were topped by Brad Sweet, Logan Schuchart, and Brian Brown.

Danny Dietrich won the Micro-Lite Last Chance Showdown.

After an early Feature crash, Donny Schatz was awarded the Smith Titanium Brake Systems Break of the Race.

Freddie Rahmer Nets 2023 Williams Grove Sprint Track Title For Career Third

No. 8 car owner Rich Eichelberger gets first ever owner’s crown

10/8/23

Mechanicsburg – Freddie Rahmer of Salfordville earned the 2023 Williams Grove Speedway Lawrence Chevrolet 410 Sprint Car track title last Saturday night with his runs in the Champion Oil National Open and National Open Preliminary make-up race, both sanctioned by the World of Outlaws.

The hard-fought track crown was the third of young Rahmer’s career at Williams Grove but a career first for car owner and veteran driver Rich Eichelberger of Dillsburg and his No. 8.

Rahmer took previous crowns aboard his father’s No. 51 sprinter in 2017 and in 2020.

Just like last season, Rahmer fought with Danny Dietrich for the title and laurels in a championship chase that again, just like last season, came down to the final races and laps of the year.

But where it was Dietrich coming out on top last year, it was 27-year old Rahmer in the 2023 edition.

Rahmer competed in all 20 shows at Williams Grove during the year, ending the season with an average feature finish of 6.8.

To his credit were a pair of wins, on May 19 and June 2, along with a trio of runner-ups and third place finishes plus two sixths, two sevenths, one eighth, one ninth and two tenth place finishes.

Team wrenches Matt Stover and Harold Lieb have been named recipients of the Davey Brown Sr. Mechanic of the Year Award.

Freddie Rahmer now joins a list of other three-time track champions including Todd Shaffer, Lynn Paxton, Smokey Snellbaker, George Speck and Tommy Hinnershitz.

The top five in the points following Rahmer and second place Dietrich was Devon Borden, TJ Stutts and defending champion Lance Dewease.

Special awards for the 2023 season within the 410 sprint ranks were also recently announced.

Earning Rookie of the Year honors was Cameron Smith, who ended up 10th in season points.

Justin Whittall earned the Sportsmanship Award.

And Troy Wagaman Jr. was voted Most Improved Driver of the 2023 season by virtue of earning his first two Williams Grove wins ever after being named the pilot of the Mike Heffner No. 27 machine.

Wagaman ended the year seventh in the speedway point standings.

Danny Dietrich did earn the 2023 Hoosier Diamond Series crown at Williams Grove Speedway aboard Gary Kauffman’s No. 48.

It is Dietrich’s first crown in the Williams Grove series that dates to 1999.

“SUNSHINE” BECOMES SECOND HOOSIER TO TAME PORT ROYAL WITH THE GREATEST SHOW ON DIRT

On a night that rain clouds were threatening to wash out the race, Sunshine broke through. But it wasn’t the literal sun gleaming on Port Royal Speedway Friday at the Nittany Showdown. It was the driver who goes by the bright nickname – Tyler Courtney.

The native of Indianapolis, IN started fourth in the 25-lap Feature, drove the Clauson Marshall Racing (CMR) #7BC to the lead in 12 laps, and pulled away on the path to his first World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car victory in more than two years. Back in July of 2021, Courtney claimed his first win with The Greatest Show on Dirt in grand fashion by topping the Kings Royal at Eldora Speedway. “Sunshine” had to wait 811 days, but that second triumph finally arrived at “The Speed Palace.”

In Victory Lane, Courtney erupted with emotion. His celebratory shouts filled the air as he climbed atop the CMR machine and sprayed a can of NOS Energy Drink. At long last, Courtney again found himself a World of Outlaws winner.

“When it takes you two years to win another Outlaw race, that just shows how tough it is to win an Outlaw race and how special it is to win these races,” Courtney said. “Jake (Argo), Luke (Vaughn), Camron (Burley), they bust their tails. We’ve obviously had an up and down year, but to close out the year I feel like we’ve been pretty consistent here to end the year. We ran up front with the Outlaws at Williams Grove and Port Royal now. This is just awesome, man.”

The night made Courtney the 15th different driver to win a World of Outlaws main event at Port Royal and only the second from the state of Indiana, the other being Spencer Bayston (2021). The 29-year-old also became the 18th competitor to top a race with the Series in 2023.

A fourth place effort in the Toyota Racing Dash slotted Courtney outside the second row in the lineup for the Feature. Right when the green flag dropped, Courtney made it known that he was hungry for a win. The NOS Energy Drink #7BC rocketed from fourth to the runner-up spot on the opening circuit by driving right between Carson Macedo and Logan Schuchart.

After taking over second, the pursuit began as Courtney locked his sights on the race’s pole sitter and early leader – James McFadden. As they navigated the opening portion of the race, McFadden managed to put a little distance between himself and Courtney. The Roth Motorsports pilot grew his advantage up to as much as a second and a half.

But when lapped traffic came into view, Courtney began to erase the margin. A 1.6 second lead on Lap 6 was slashed nearly in half on the next circuit. Two more laps later, and the gap between the two dipped under half a second. Then on the 12th lap, Courtney made his move. Tyler Courtney chases after James McFadden at Port Royal SpeedwayHeading into Turn 1, Courtney threw a slide job at McFadden and cleared him. The Australian rallied on the exit of Turn 2 with a crossover to slip under Courtney and reclaim the top spot. In the next set of corners, McFadden went to the cushion while Courtney went to the bottom. The low side proved to the right choice as Courtney rolled by McFadden and cleared him down the front straightaway.

“We did everything that we wanted to do there for the Feature,” Courtney explained. “I was able to get my wing back there just about halfway and kept inching her back as we went. Man, the more I got it back the better we were.”

After taking the lead, Courtney quickly began to build a gap. Two laps after moving ahead of McFadden, Courtney’s advantage ballooned over a second as he began to slice through traffic.

A potential challenger to Courtney arose in the form of a fast-charging David Gravel. The Big Game Motorsports pilot moved around McFadden for second on Lap 17. While Gravel was over two seconds behind Courtney when he took the runner-up spot, thick traffic ahead of him gave Gravel hope.

But it was hope that was quickly extinguished when Courtney put a pair of lapped cars between himself and Gravel. And once he did so, the margin began to grow quickly. On Lap 22, Courtney crossed the line four seconds in front of Gravel. And then a few laps later, Courtney took the checkered flag comfortably for his second career World of Outlaws win.

“It’s just unbelievable man,” Courtney said. “Winning Outlaw races is really, really hard, and this one feels good.

Coming home second was David Gravelfor his Series-leading 31st World of Outlaws podium of the year. The Watertown, CT native is staying hot with his fourth runner-up in the last seven races as he looks to chip away at Brad Sweet’s point lead. Gravel chopped the gap down to 82 markers.

“Cody (Jacobs) kept working on this thing and gave us a really good race car there in the A-Main,” Gravel said. “It felt like in the beginning to the middle of the race we were really, really good, and I felt like probably one of the best cars. And I felt like at the end we just kind of ran out of grip, and Sunshine was running a really good pace, and I never really good close to him.”

Rounding out the top three was early leader – James McFadden. The result made the Roth Motorsports driver the eighth to reach double digit World of Outlaws podiums in 2023 as he notched his 10th.

“I didn’t know where to run there for the first bit,” McFadden said. “Normally at Port Royal, you pound the top of (Turns) 1 and 2 and float around (Turns) 3 and 4. I felt okay doing that, and then Tyler went by us like we were standing still, so he whooped our butts tonight. But that’s about as good as I’ve ever felt at Port Royal. Happy to be competitive, just need to be a little better”

Logan Schuchart and Lance Dewease completed the top five.

A 22nd to 14th drive netted the KSE Racing Hard Charger for Rico Abreu.

In Low-E Insulation Qualifying, Brad Sweet earned his third Simpson Performance Products QuickTime and the 72nd of his career.

CASE No.1 Engine Oil Heat One went to Brad Sweet. NOS Energy Drink Heats Two through Four were topped by David Gravel, Tyler Courtney, and Logan Schuchart.

James McFadden won the Toyota Racing Dash.

Giovanni Scelzi topped the Micro-Lite Last Chance Showdown.

The Smith Titanium Brake Systems Break of the Race went to Sye Lynch after slipping from fifth to 11th, narrowly missing his second career World of Outlaws top 10

 

PORT ROYAL, Pa. (October 5, 2023) - “Blackjack” Brian Brown earned a $62,000 payday on Thursday night at the Port Royal Speedway “Speed Palace” in Port Royal, Pennsylvania, not only solidifying his first All Star triumph of the season, but simultaneously securing a first-ever Tuscarora 50 championship. Brown, ace of the Casey’s/FVP No. 21 sprint car, took command of the prestigious 50-lapper on lap 44, battling by race-long rival and fellow Knoxville Raceway warrior, Chase Randall. The Higginsville, Missouri, native, who is now a four-time All Star winner in his career, was a frontrunner the entire distance, racing into a podium spot for the first time on lap 24 before earning the next two positions.
 
  NASCAR Cup Series champion, Kyle Larson, battled ahead late to finish second, followed by Chase Randall, Brent Shearer - the highest finishing Posse ace, and Outlaw invader, Carson Macedo.
 
  “I’ve been coming here for a long time, and I’ve always dreamt about standing here in victory lane, and to finally do it at the Tuscarora 50, in front of an amazing crowd, is really special,” Brian Brown stated. “This is a crown jewel. There are a lot of races, but this is an event. I want to thank my crew - Chad, Justin, my dad. We’ve had some bad runs, and it’s easy to get down on yourself, but they don’t. They wake up every morning ready to work and I’m extremely proud of them and what they do.”
 
  “The Quickest Chicken” Chase Randall led the first 18 circuits before Myerstown, Pennsylvania’s Brent Marks took over on lap 19. Back-to-back cautions, including a red flag incident, set-up Marks’ eventual takeover, sliding the Waco, Texas, native as the pair entered turn one. Randall, in his first-ever race at Port Royal Speedway, started from the outside-pole position, ultimately leading his first-ever laps with the All Star Circuit of Champions.
 
  Marks maintained control until disaster struck on lap 35, spinning to a stop in turn four after nearly making contact with a lapped car. The former Tuscarora 50 champion had nowhere to go.
 
  With Marks now out, Randall was able to take back the lead, keeping control until caution flags waved for the final time on lap 44, this one for then runner-up, Buddy Kofoid. The caution also allowed Brown the opportunity to gain second, using the ensuing restart to drive by the 18-year-old Texan.
 
  “We really didn’t make that many changes during the break,” Brown added. “I was taking off around the top the entire race, so I figured for that last restart I would change things up. I tried to get by Chase [Randall] as clean as I could without crashing anyone. But how about that kid? Racing that well in his first time ever being here. I’m proud of him.
 
  “We’re going to celebrate this one for a while tonight. We’ll worry about racing tomorrow, tomorrow.”
 
  The 2023 Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 season is officially complete. News pertaining to the 2024 campaign will be released in the coming weeks.

Brent Marks Gets 75K Williams Grove Champion Oil National Open

Myerstown driver wins prestigious event for second time, Pittman again comes close

Brad Sweet Claims Open Preliminary, Freddie Rahmer Nets Third Oval Track Title

9/30/23

Mechanicsburg – Brent Marks of Myerstown triumphed in the 61st annual Champion Racing Oil National Open for World of Outlaws Sprint Cars at Williams Grove Speedway on Saturday night.

The win was the second of Marks’ career in the prestigious Williams Grove event, earning him $75,000.

It was also the pilot’s fifth victory of the season at the speedway and it pushed his total five-win earnings to $120,100.

To get the win, Marks had to contend with Oklahoma’s Daryn Pittman who was vying for his first-ever win in the National Open after entering the race with more runner-up finishes than any other driver in history at five.

Marks won the dash and earned the pole position for the 40-lap Open with Justin Peck lining up alongside on the front row and Pittman taking the green flag from the sixth spot.

Marks led the first lap over Peck before the Indiana native made a low move in the first and second turns to net command.

Pittman motored into second on the same lap, also bypassing Marks.

But Marks then went to work blasting the top lane and rallied back up to Pittman and by lap six the pair was nose to tail for the second spot.

The toe-to-toe battle for second continued for several laps and by lap 11 the front trio were all within one corner, vying for the lead.

That’s when Pittman found lowside bite in the second turn aboard the Kreitz No. 69K and drove up off of the corner to take control.

Pittman hit lapped traffic on the 14th tour and began putting daylight between himself and the rest of the field only to be slowed with 25 laps to go for a stopped Lance Dewease in the fourth corner.

Dewease was racing for his sixth win in the race but jumped the cushion to a stop.

Just prior to the caution, Marks had muscled around Peck for second.

The caution flag for Dewease turned red flag in order for teams to refuel the cars.

Pittman then led the next two laps before the red flag appeared for a two-car flip in the first turn when Logan Schuchart and James McFadden connected after McFadden spun.

Pittman would pull out to a 1.452 second lead on the restart but Marks was ready to make his move and began to steadily drive down the leader’s advantage to be on his bumper with 20 laps to go.

Marks insisted on using the top groove while Pittman was equally committed to using the bottom and middle lanes and Marks was finally able to blast the top in turns three and four with 18 laps left to squeeze into the lead.

Pittman kept Marks within striking distance for the next six laps until the leader hit the rear of the field with 12 laps remaining.

And that’s when Marks began pulling away in his No. 19M to post his 20th career oval win by 2.431 seconds.

“I did what I hadda’ do to try to make the top work,” Marks said in victory lane.

“When you’re trying to pass the 69K you normally don’t do it on the bottom.”

For his part, Pittman again finished second in the race, pushing his total to six runner-ups.

“That was hard to swallow. I feel like I let these guys down,” Pittman said.

“I thought that race was gonna’ be won on the bottom or the middle. I didn’t do a good enough job setting the pace up front.”

“I would have gladly walked away and you’d never see me here again if I had won the National Open,” Pittman admitted.

Rico Abreu rode home third followed by Sheldon Haudenschild and outlaws point leader Brad Sweet.

Sixth through 10th went to Peck, David Gravel, Donny Schatz, Danny Dietrich and Tyler Courtney.

Heats for the 52-car field went to Abreu, Gravel, Sweet and Marks.

Sam Hafertepe Jr. won the C Main and Buddy Kofoid scored the B Main while Marks won the dash.

Abreu set fast time with a lap of 16.462 seconds.

Following the National Open, the postponed Open Preliminary from Friday night was spun off with outlaws high point man Sweet scoring his second win of the season at the track.

California’s Sweet started second in the 25-lap main and chased Tyler Courtney for the first five laps before a caution flag regrouped the field.

Sweet used a slide job in the third and fourth turns on the restart to get the lead before driving away to his third career checkers at Williams Grove.

It was his first win in the National Open Preliminary.

Third starter Carson Macedo came on strong during the final 10 laps to bypass Lance Dewease for third and Courtney for second.

Gravel was third followed by Courtney and 12th starter Marks who was surging as the checkered flag fell.

Sixth through 10th went to Dewease, Freddie Rahmer, Peck, Pittman and TJ Stutts.

Rahmer’s run earned him the 2023 Lawrence Chevrolet Sprint Car Track Title.

The championship is the third of his career at Williams Grove having taken the first two in 2017 and in 2020.

61st Annual Williams Grove National Open Saturday Program Now Offers Two Features

Biggest Open field in a decade races before the rain Friday, sets up blockbuster double feature Open finale with $85,000 on the line

9/29/23

Mechanicsburg – The start of the 61st annual Champion Racing Oil National Open weekend at Williams Grove Speedway drew the biggest event field of World of Outlaws Sprint Cars to the oval in a decade on Friday night as some 58 cars entered competition.

And the preliminary night feature field was on the track taking its parade lap when heavy drizzle that turned to rain hit the speedway, forcing the cars back into the pit area.

The resulting postponement of the main event has set up a spectacular 61st annual Champion Racing Oil National Open finale on Saturday night, now offering not only the 40-lap, $75,000 to win National Open but also the make-up feature held over from Friday night.

General admission gates will open at 4:30 pm with practice laps getting underway at 6:30.

The entire 61st annual Champion Racing Oil National Open racing program will then be spun off followed by the 25-lap make-up main to conclude the big night, worth another $10,000.

The make-up main will take the green flag with 30 cars slated to be in action.

Tyler Courtney and Brad Sweet will share the front row for the green flag in the concluding Open feature followed by: Carson Macedo, Brian Brown, David Gravel, Lance Dewease, Freddie Rahmer, Justin Peck, Buddy Kofoid, Brock Zearfoss, Aaron Reutzel, Brent Marks, TJ Stutts, Daryn Pittman, Zeb Wise, Chase Randall, Chad Trout, Giovanni Scelzi, Troy Wagaman Jr., James McFadden, Anthony Macri, Kasey Kahne, Danny Dietrich, Logan Schuchart, Kyle Moody, Donny Schatz, Dylan Norris, Sheldon Haudenschild, Spencer Bayston and Rico Abreu.

The final six starters all had to take provisional starting spots to make the starting grid.

Both Dewease and Gravel have a chance to make history in the event by becoming the first four-time winner of the Open preliminary race.

The pair is locked in a four-way tie at three wins apiece with Keith Kauffman and Steve Kinser.

Both main events on Saturday night will pay full points toward the 2023 Lawrence Chevrolet track title that will be decided with the final checkered flag of the night, coming in the make-up main.

Gravel set fast time over the 58-car field with a lap of 16.101 seconds, just .012-thousandths of a second off of the one-lap track record of 16.089.

Dewease was second quick, shy of the track record by .088-thousandths of a second.

Heats went to Gravel, Courtney, Rico Abreu and Brown.

James McFadden won the B Main and Ryan Smith took the C Main.

Smith also won the non-qualifiers race.

Courtney earned the pole for the feature by claiming the dash.

Abreu gave up third starting spot in the feature event when he came up with a left rear flat tire while the field was pacing the oval prior to the parade lap.

DNQ: Tyler Reeser, Landon Myers, Cory Eliason, Zach Hampton, Robbie Kendall, Troy Fraker, Billy Dietrich, Steve Buckwalter, Austin Bishop, Dylan Cisney, Michael Millard, Noah Gass, Kody Hartlaub, Jordan Givler, Chris Arnold, Brent Shearer, Ryan Smith, Justin Whittall, Robbie Price, Jeff Halligan, Tanner Holmes, Kyle Reinhardt, Garet Williamson, Cameron Smith, Lucas Wolfe, Sam Hafertepe Jr., Skylar Gee, Devon Borden.

Adult admission for September 30 is set at $45 with youth ages 13 – 20 priced at $20.

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

Williams Grove National Open Preliminary Has Its Place In History

2023 event to be run September 29

9/27/23

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 Diamond Anniversary, 61st running on September 30 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 36th running on September 29.

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 10 occasions the preliminary winner has swept both National Open races, going on to score the coveted big prize in the Open itself.

Sweeps came in 1982, 1985, 1989, 1990, 1995, 1996, 1997, 2011, 2017 and in 2022 at the respective hands of Lynn Paxton, Wolfgang, Stevie Smith, Steve Kinser, Mark Kinser, Lance Dewease, Sammy Swindell, Jason Myers, David Gravel and Lance Dewease.

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 is going for an amazing seventh event title in this year’s race.

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

Another 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.

In 2021, NASCAR star Kyle Larson stopped at Williams Grove and copped the preliminary before going on to claim the season title on NASCAR’s top circuit.

The 2022 version of the race, won by Dewease, ended up being the shortest in history at 10 laps after the race was called official by outlaws gurus thanks to persistent, intermittent light rain.

The 36th running of the 25-lap National Open Preliminary gets underway at 7:30 on September 29.

The winner will receive $10,000.

Admission prices for Friday’s program are $35 for adults and $15 for youth.

THUNDER ON THE HILL SALUTES & APPLAUDES THE ACOMPLISHMENTS OF GLENN & BONITA HYNEMAN,

35TH THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES SEASON IN THE PLANNING FOR 2024

BECHTELSVILLE, PA SEPTEMBER 27, 2023 . . . . . . The words iconic and legendary say it all when I reflect on the history of Glenn and Bonita Hyneman and the 126 Racing Team.

I’m fortunate, that my time in racing offered me the opportunity to watch all the years of the 126 movement. As a race official in some capacity, and at different tracks in the area, I have personally seen the impact this team had on local racing. Glenn and Boneita always pushed the envelope to be a better team always in the chase of a win, and in turn, they elevated their competitors both on the track and in the pits. It goes without saying, they made race tracks, organizations and officials step up their game as well.

I could recall many stories between Team 126 and myself over the years, but I will hold those thoughts for another day.

Instead, we extend our sincere appreciation to this team for their support and commitment over the many, many years. Local racing is better today thanks to the participation of Glenn and Bonita Hyneman, and I feel that I am better at what I do in racing thanks to Glenn. It’s hard to imagine walking the pits on race night and not seeing the familiar #126 and the team actively preparing the car for action. I’ll miss those off the record comments exchanged between Glenn and I as well as the joyous hugs from Bonita after a good run or a visit to victory lane.

Glenn, Bonita and the 126 Team have been a staple at Thunder on the Hill. They are the only car owners that have won both a modified and 410 sprint car Thunder on the Hill Title as well as feature wins in both classes. As car owners, Glenn and Boneita were Thunder on the Hill winners in more then thirty of the thirty-four year run of Thunder on the Hill. Again, we say thank you and this legacy will live on forever.

Since that first Thunder on the Hill event at Grandview Speedway in August of 1990, when Steve Smith took the inaugural win, one-hundred and fifty-two Thunder events were presented distributing in excess of 5.6 million dollars.

Looking to 2024, Tuesday night, June 11 the Jesse Hockett Classic will return with Thunder on the Hill once again hosting the opening event of the USAC Non-wing Sprint National Tour. This popular double-header will find the NASCAR Modifieds sharing the program with race time set for 7:30 PM.

Always a popular event, Tuesday night, July 2 will host the Hodnett Cup, the $10,000 to win Pennsylvania 410 Sprint Speed Week Series event as it returns to Grandview Speedway. The NASCAR Modifieds will once again be on this race card. Rico will be looking for the “hat trick” in 2024.

Although the date is not confirmed as yet, we did get the nod that the High Limit 410 Sprints will also be back on the Hill in 2024. Rico Abreu won the first ever High Limit Sprint event in the Northeast at Grandview on July 26 and in addition, won the 2022 Thunder on the Hill Speed Week event.

Also returning in 2024 is the Balls to the Wall 50 for Modifieds and the 602 Sportsman will also be on the program with both divisions taking part in the unique Invert Race format. The date for this event will be confirmed shortly.

Check out our website and visit Facebook to stay up to date on all coming Thunder on the Hill Racing Series news.

We extend our appreciation to the many sponsors who helped present this popular series. We salute our long time Series Sponsor NAPA Auto Parts as well as Associate Sponsors Levan Machine & Truck Equipment, HVAC Distributors, Pioneer Pole Buildings, Rich Mar Florist and GT Radiator Repairs. We’re looking to their return in 2024.

61st Annual Champion Racing Oil Williams Grove National Open Is Saturday

Historic Race Again Pays $75,000 Top Prize Sept. 30

Mechanicsburg – Sprint car fans in the East will assemble once again this Saturday night to see the 61st annual running of the Williams Grove Speedway Champion Racing Oil National Open for sprint cars sanctioned by the World of Outlaws Sprint Cars Series, going 40-laps in distance and again paying $75,000 to the winner.

The widely acclaimed event will go down in history with a Saturday A-Main total purse alone eclipsing $155,000!

The National Open has a grand history that dates back to its inception and first champion in 1963. It is a history that pre-dates all other season-finale races held anywhere in the East.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

That 1978 National Open holds the distinction of technically being the first-ever race to be sanctioned by the World of Outlaws at Williams Grove despite the fact that no outlaws drivers were actually in the field.

All the stars of the WoO circuit were at a race in the western part of the nation on that date but outlaws rules during the series’ formative years stated that any race paying over a certain dollar amount to win would count as a sanctioned race and such is the history.

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

The only National Open to ever carry an All Stars Circuit of Champions sanction took to the track in 1981 when Steve Smith Sr. returned for a third Open triumph.

Lynn Paxton went back-to-back in 1982 and 1983 and stunned the racing world after his second 75-lap win by going into retirement during the off-season.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Schatz was again the winner in 2007.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Connecticut’s David Gravel struck for his second $50,000 score in the 2017 National Open. Gravel took the lead from Donny Schatz and then took the lead back from James McFadden to win the 55th Annual affair.

An emotional 2018 event held just days after the tragic death of 2009 National Open champion Greg Hodnett saw local driver Lance Dewease win his fourth career nationals for his fourth different car owner.

Driving for Don Kreitz Jr. in the No. 69K, Dewease wrestled the lead away from Brock Zearfoss with a three-wide move in the second turn on lap 24 to seal the 40-lap deal, worth $56,000. A tearful Dewease dedicated the victory to Hodnett.

Brent Marks of Myerstown won the richest sprint car race in the history of Williams Grove Speedway and the largest cash payoff ever for a sprint car race in the Eastern United States by claiming a $65,000 victory in 2019.

A former regular at the track before going on the road with the World of Outlaws Sprint Cars Series a few years prior, Marks scored the WoO victory by turning back challenges from both Brian Brown who took the lead for a time early and from Daryn Pittman on a last lap restart in the 40-lap affair.

A National Open billed as the biggest sprint car race in the nation went to outlaw Donny Schatz in 2020 as the North Dakotan scored $75,000 for his unrivaled sixth career victory in the event. Schatz was the third and final leader in the hotly contested 40-lapper.

A lap 12 restart saw David Gravel pull the trigger for control over Logan Schuchart but after locking down to the low side in the third and fourth turns, Schatz reeled in Gravel to make a low side, first turn winning move as the leader was entering traffic on lap 21. Kyle Larson come to life after a lap 25 restart and when Schatz entered traffic with seven laps left he closed in for the win. Larson pulled a banzai run through the third and fourth corners as the pair raced to the checkers by blasting the outside line before pulling to Schatz’s outside in turn four however just as it appeared that he would edge in front his mount jumped the cushion.

California’s Carson Macedo won the biggest sprint car race of his career in the 2021 version of the Open when he became the third and final leader in the 40-lap main, overtaking Logan Schuchart for the lead with four laps to go.

Schuchart got control on lap 13 when defending event winner and current leader Brent Marks spun while working traffic. Macedo fought off the challenges of Sheldon Haudenschild for second with 12 laps to go before taking the lead from a struggling Schuchart in traffic.

Still aboard the No. 69K, local Lance Dewease would end up taking a flag to flag victory in the 2022, 75K to win, 40-lap National Open but he did lose the lead to a surging Brent Marks on lap 29. Marks made a backstretch move stick but Dewease got a reprieve before the lap could be scored thanks to a red flag for a crash. Marks continued taking shots over the final 12 laps but would end up second as part of a PA Posse podium sweep at the finish with Anthony Macri in third spot. The race was postponed for three weeks after an initial rainout.

For Dewease, the Open title was a fifth as driver having taken previous Opens in 1996, 2001, 2002 and 2018 for owners Walt Dyer, Joe Harz, Al Hamilton and Kreitz respectively. The victory was also Dewease’s fifth in a row at the track to end the season. Additionally, the win was the third of car owner Don Kreitz’s career in the event, having taken one as an owner/driver.

Admission prices for Saturday’s National Open are $45 for adults and $20 for youth.

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

Pittman Ready To Wipe Away Runner-ups With Win In Saturday National Open

Daryn, Don and Davey pair for run at 75K payday and drivers elusive first event win

9/25/23

Mechanicsburg – Daryn Pittman has finished second in the Williams Grove Champion Racing Oil National Open more times than he cares to count. He has finished second more times than anyone else in history in fact.

He has finished bridesmaid five times, to be exact.

But he’s hoping to wipe that statistic off of his record with the 61st running of the event this Saturday night.

“It ate at me when I had one. Now that we have five, every one makes it worse,” he says of his runner-ups in the prestigious race.

“ Just to be that close that many times to a crown jewel is tough.”

So what’s his remedy you ask?

Only pairing with one of if not the most successful sprint car teams in the region and nation for the last seven years, owned and wrenched by a couple of Hall of Famers.

Pittman will take another crack at the whopping $75,000 payday on Saturday night while at the wheel of the Don Kreitz Jr. No. 69K, wrenched by mechanic ace Davey Brown.

And by the way, that’s the same car that won the Open last season with Lance Dewease in the seat.

It owns a total of three Open wins if you’re counting.

“Those two together worked and it was a resurrection, truthfully, of both their careers,” he says of the pairing of car owner Kreitz and driver Dewease since 2016.

“ I think it brought the 69K to another level that it had not been for a long time, at least consistently anyway. They worked well together and it was a good fit.”

Daryn, Don and Davey hit the track for the first time together in the September 15 Diamond Series race at Williams Grove and rode home third, behind Dewease ironically.

“I feel like, and me and Don have talked about this, that mine and Lances driving styles are probably very similar. And I think our first night sorta’ proved that,” Pittman says.

“ I don’t think we were great but we accomplished everything that I was hoping to accomplish for our first night in the car - it was my first night there this year and their first time there since the Summer Nationals.”

Now 45 and owner of Ultra Shield Race Products in Texas, 2013 World of Outlaws champion Pittman left full time driving after the 2020 season and has only been on-track sporadically since then but has still proven to be successful along the way.

But can he win the National Open with such little track time under his belt in recent seasons?

“Absolutely,” Pittman says with conviction.

“I wouldn’t be coming if I didn’t believe that”

“Do I think it’s harder because I haven’t been racing and running less, do I think I’m at 100-percent performance, no. But I’m still confident in myself that I’m at 80 or 90-percent,” he says.

“I mean sure, we gotta’ have things go our way, but I still think we can win. And I know I’m in a car that’s capable of doing it.”

“Honestly, my thoughts until I heard that they (Kreitz and Dewease) had parted ways, my 100-percent intention was to not run the National Open. I had no plans of it. I was not coming in.”

“But it did interest me enough to make a phone call to Don and let him know that if he didn’t have someone for the National Open – I had no idea what they were looking for – I basically just made a call and said, ‘I’m sure I can’t do what you want (long term) but if you’re interested in running the National Open and you think I’m what you’re looking for then I’d be interested,’”

But Pittman says he did have other options.

“My other alternatives I just wasn’t that interested in, for a couple reasons,” the racer, businessman and family man admits.

“I coulda’ got in some really good cars but I’m just confident that between Davey and Don, I’m hopeful that they can make up for where I’d probably be lacking and any of the other cars, we wouldn’t of been in a position to make up for that,” he says.

“ I think I need a superior car to help me overcome where I’m at in my racing career. I watched that car for alot of years and it just looks fun to drive. And it is.”

And after his third place run two weeks ago, he feels like he and the team are in a good place for the looming Open.

“It didn’t feel like an insurmountable gap that we needed to close,” he says of how things felt at the completion of that race.

But he’s not exactly Casper Milquetoast as he heads East for this week’s action either.

“I’m well aware of the challenge that it will be. But we felt confident with how Friday night went that we can pick up from there on Friday,” he says.

And of all those seconds he’s been carrying around?

“Some were disappointing seconds and some were good seconds. I wasn’t ready to quit trying but I know that at my stage in my career good opportunities are gonna’ become less and less likely. And I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to get in the 69K and see what we can do,” Pittman says.

“It’s kinda’ like that Toby Keith song – I aint as good as I once was, but I'm as good once, as I ever was.”

Pittman owns 17 career sprint car wins at Williams Grove Speedway.

He’s hoping it will be 18 at the conclusion of 40 laps on Saturday night.

Action gets underway at 7:30 pm.

Dewease Scores First For Macri Stables At Williams Grove, Locke Credited With 358 Sprint Win

9/22/23

Mechanicsburg – Lance Dewease scored his first sprint car win for the No. 39M Macri Motorsports stables, at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night by taking the Kiely Construction World of Outlaws tune up race for the Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint cars.

The victory was worth $6,000 for Dewease as he scored his third win of the season at the track and his 114th overall at the oval.

In the 358 sprint main, the final event of the season was credited to Derek Locke after Chad Criswell failed to make weight during post race inspection.

Brent Marks started on the pole of the 25-lap 410 sprint main and jetted into control followed by fourth starter Dewease on the opening lap as the pair disposed of second starter Troy Wagaman Jr.

Marks, who was working on his fifth win of the season at Williams Grove, entered the rear of the field on the seventh tour chased by Dewease and at the halfway point the margin between first and second was 1.45 seconds.

A red flag halted the race with 10 laps to go when Ryan Smith turned over on the frontstretch and Danny Dietrich slowed with a left rear flat tire.

The restart saw Dewease go low and pull a slide job in the first turn to net control however he failed to complete the pass, allowing Marks to slingshot back around for control.

He attempted the pass again a lap later and again didn’t complete the move.

And then seconds later Marks slowed dramatically on the backstretch and pulled into the pits, handing the point over to the Fayetteville driver.

Dewease then ran to a 1.407 second win over a closing Freddie Rahmer.

Wagaman was third followed by Devon Borden and TJ Stutts, who was the PA Dyno Hard Charger.

Sixth through 10th went to Cameron Smith, Chad Trout, Dylan Norris, Danny Dietrich and Jake Karklin in his first ever visit to the speedway.

Heats went to Dewease, Rahmer and Cameron Smith. Marks won the dash to earn the pole for the main event.

Dewease set fast time with a lap of 16.888 seconds.

Polesitter Matt Findley led the first three laps before Chad Criswell took the lead on a restart.

Frankie Herr raced into second on the seventh tour but failed to challenge Criswell.

Herr held the spot until 11th starter Derek Locke went low in the first turn to gain the position.

A final restart with one lap to go saw Criswell get away from Locke only to fail post race inspection, remanding the win to the Carlisle driver.

Credited with second through fifth was Herr, Kody Hartlaub, Kyle Spence and Dylan Norris.

Doug Hammaker rode home seventh and scored the 2023 358 sprint track title.

Heats went to Findley, Bryn Gohn and Logan Rumsey.

Locke also earned the PA Dyno Hard Charger Award and became the only repeat winner of the season at Williams Grove in nine races contested.

LINCOLN SPEEDWAY

Abbottstown, PA

2023 TRACK CHAMPION, FREDDIE RAHMER, SCORES 14th WIN OF THE SEASON; Kody Hartlaub Back in Victory Lane

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Saturday, September 23, 2023 PA KARTING GRAND NATIONALS

Saturday, September 30, 2023 District 6 AMA Flat Track Motorcycles

Saturday, October 7, 2023 (5:30PM) LAZER LATE MODEL CLASH: Super Late Models, Extreme Stocks, Limited Stocks (plus 7/1 make-up feature) and Central PA Legends (plus 7/1 make-up feature)

Abbottstown, PA (September 16, 2023) – Freddie Rahmer secured his fourth consecutive track championship with his Brian Montieth Classic win on Saturday night. Rahmer’s 14th win of the season was worth $5,000 as the track honored seven-time track champion, Montieth.

Cameron Smith, the new driver of the #69, took the lead over Dylan Norris when the green flag flew. Tyler Ross was up next to Norris to challenge for second at the line but Norris held the spot.

The yellow flag came out on lap 1 when Billy Dietrich fell off the pace and headed to the pits. The top five for the early race restart were Smith, Norris, Ross, Freddie Rahmer and Troy Wagaman.

Smith had a solid restart ahead of the field as Rahmer drover under Ross for third. Rahmer and Ross raced side-by-side at the line with Rahmer taking third by a nose. They continued to race wheel-to-wheel through turn 2 with Rahmer taking the solid advantage down the back stretch. Wagaman got by Ross for fourth.

Rahmer went to the bottom in turns 1 and 2 to get under Norris and moved into second on lap 6. Freddie tried a slider for the lead in turns 3 and 4 but could not make the pass. Wagaman continued to make his charge to the front getting by Norris for third.

Rahmer dove under Smith as they raced into turn 3 but Smith took the spot back before they crossed the line. Lapped traffic loomed ahead as Rahmer made the pass for the lead and took the top spot on lap 12.

Wagaman made quick work of Smith and moved into second. Smith stayed close and was challenging Wagaman trying to take the spot back. Troy’s charge was put to a halt when he had a flat tire on the front stretch bringing out the caution on lap 15.

Norris also had a flat tire under caution as he was running third. After things calmed down, the top five for the restart were Freddie, Smith, Ross, Brandon Rahmer and Aaron Bollinger. Wagaman rejoined the field.

Freddie drove through the middle of turns 1 and 2 on the restart, pulling away from Smith. The yellow flag flew again on the restart for debris on the track. The caution allowed Norris to rejoin.

Ross looked to the outside of Smith for second on the restart but Smith held him off. Tyler didn’t back down and was all over Smith for the runner-up spot. Ross’ persistence finally paid off as he moved into second on lap 18. Smith tried to reclaim the spot but ended up losing a position as Bollinger got by him for third.

Rahmer entered lapped traffic with 9 laps to go and the lapped traffic was heavy with 5 laps to go.

Australian driver, Lachy McDonough, spun in turn 4 bringing out the caution on lap 26. Robbie Kendall did a 360 spin and McDonough was collateral damage.

Freddie led Ross, Bollinger, Brandon and Smith for the late-race restart. Ross looked to the outside of Rahmer for the lead on the restart but could not make the pass. Bollinger was right there as well to challenge for second. Cory Haas was working on Smith for a spot in the top five and made the pass on the final lap.

Rahmer scored the win 2.200 seconds ahead of Ross. Bollinger crossed the line third and Brandon was fourth. Haas completed the top five.

Kody Hartlaub Back in Victory Lane

After winning the first two races of the 2023 season, Kody Hartlaub had been kept out of victory lane by a slew of drivers, but that changed on Saturday night. Hartlaub scored his third win of the season and maintained his spot at the top of the season point standings.

Pole-sitter, Tylar Rutherford had the advantage as the field raced into turn 1. Frankie Herr challenged Rutherford down the back stretch for the lead and Herr would lead lap 1.

Jayden Wolf got by Joe Timmins for fifth before the yellow flag came out on lap 2 when Rutherford, who had been running second, spun out in turn 2.

Herr led Spence, Wolf, Steve Owings and Kody Hartlaub on the restart. Joe Trone Jr. stopped in turn 4 on the restart, bringing out the yellow again. Timmins came to a stop under caution as well.

Hartlaub was working on Owings for fourth and got under Steve down the back stretch moving into fourth on lap 4 before the yellow flag flew again. Jake Galloway was off the pace and Nick Yinger was backed into the wall in turn 2.

The top five for the restart were Herr, Spence, Wolf, Hartlaub and Owings. Hartlaub was all over Wolf for third and made the pass coming out of turn 2. Hartlaub had a heck of a run down the back stretch and was quickly closing in on Spence. Hartlaub took second on lap 12 and closed in on Herr and they entered lapped traffic. Kody got under Herr as they raced through lapped traffic. Spence then went after Herr for second, but the caution came out on lap 15 as Justin Foster was off the pace coming out of turn 4.

With five laps to go the field lined up behind Hartlaub, Herr, Spence, Wolf and Owings. David Holbrook came to a stop before the field could refire. Once the green flag dropped Hartlaub shot off like a rocket as Spence challenged Herr for second.

Nick Yinger brought out the last caution of the race on lap 17 when he spun in turn 2.

Herr had a better restart this time, but could not challenge Hartlaub for the lead.

Hartlaub took the checkered flag 1.812 seconds ahead of Herr. Spence finished third and Wolf crossed the line fourth. Owings completed the top five.

Wagaman Wins Williams Grove Kimmel Memorial, Chad Criswell Cops 358 Match Race

9/15/23

Mechanicsburg – Troy Wagaman Jr. picked up the Billy Kimmel Memorial for 410 sprint cars presented by Komatsu at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, taking home $6,000 for his second victory of the season at the track in the Diamond Series event.

In the Match Race for 358 sprints, veteran Chad Criswell took the win, becoming the third and final leader of the event.

Polesitter Justin Peck stormed into control when the green flag fell in the 25-lap Kimmel Memorial for sprints.

After starting third, Wagaman made what would end up being the winning move on the opening lap when he blasted past second starter Lance Dewease low in the second corner.

But even by then Peck was off and running, blasting around the oval on the cushion, wasting little time establishing himself as the man to beat by building up a more than two second lead.

Peck’s rapid pace was slowed on the sixth lap for a stopped Troy Fraker but he again pulled away when action resumed.

The Indiana leader entered lapped traffic on the 13th tour and struggled with traffic for the next three laps, allowing Wagaman and Dewease to close in but once breaking free he again went to work ripping around the cushion.

Another yellow flag slowed the field with seven laps to go for debris on the track and during the caution laps, Peck came up with a right rear flat tire.

After both Wagaman and Dewease pulled alongside the leader to warn him, Peck made the decision to attempt to restart but his decision was ill-fated as he came to a stop a lap later.

Wagaman took control for the new green and Dewease made an attempt for the lead in turns three and four but a stout-running Wagaman drove off to the checkers aboard the Heffner No. 27.

Dewease was 1.365 seconds behind at the finish followed by Daryn Pittman aboard the Kreitz No. 69K.

Dylan Norris finished a strong fourth and Danny Dietrich finished fifth, also scored as the PA Dyno Hard Charger.

Sixth through 10th went to Cameron Smith, Devon Borden, Freddie Rahmer, TJ Stutts and Chase Dietz.

Heats were taken by Smith, Borden and Pittman.

Dewease set fast time with a lap of 16.528 seconds.

Point leader Doug Hammaker started on the pole of the 25-lap Match Race for the 358 sprints and lost the lead briefly on the first lap when Chris Frank hustled by on the backstretch.

But Hammaker reclaimed the spot with a turn three blast back into control before just before the only caution flag of the race appeared for a stopped Preston Lattomus.

Fourth starter Chad Criswell restarted third behind Frank and drove into second when action resumed.

With a full head of steam, Criswell quickly closed up on Hammaker to cross the stripe on lap four just out of the lead.

But on lap five he did get the lead before slowly but surely pulling away from Hammaker.

Some tense moments in traffic mid-race allowed Hammaker to close up the distance but after biding his time to get through the traffic jam, Criswell went on to record his third career limited sprint win at Williams Grove, worth over $2,000.

Hammaker finished second followed by Steve Owings, Chris Frank and Kody Hartlaub.

Sixth through 10th went to Frankie Herr, Tyler Ulrich, Tyler Walton, Dylan Norris and Logan Rumsey.

Owings was the PA Dyno Hard Charger.

Heats were won by Walton, Jake Eldreth and Criswell with Zach Newlin claming the consolation race.

Match Race contributing sponsors were Bill Devine and Dirty Deeds, Ephrata Recycling, JDI Site Prep, Mamma’s Pizza, Ant Bay, Mennonite Mafia and Powder Works.

BAPS Honors Les Stewart with Highest Purse in Speedway's History

YORK HAVEN, Pa.: Legendary car-owner Les Stewart was known for going big. It’s how he ran his race team and approached his life.

Now, BAPS Motor Speedway is doing the same. And they are doing it by raising the bar for a season-ending race in his honor.

Speedway General Manager Kolten Gouse has announced a lucrative purse for the York Excavating Final Showdown, which takes place on Saturday, November 11th. Not only will the event feature a $25,000 winner’s share, the total purse exceeds $88,000.

This event features the highest purse in speedway history and is also the largest unsanctioned show in central Pennsylvania. It’s the type of payout that will draw the best drivers from central Pennsylvania, as well as some invaders.

“We have been working on this purse for the last month,” Gouse said. “This is a minimum. We are going to continue to look for sponsorship in an effort to add more money to the prize fund for the drivers who attend this event.

“Les Stewart was a big part of the success of this speedway, and we wanted to honor him in a way that mirrors his contribution and how he approached his race team and business. I want to thank York Excavating and all of the sponsors who have helped out. If not for them, this wouldn’t be possible.”

The winner of the Final Showdown will receive $25,000. Second will cash a $10,000 check, with 12th-place receiving $2,000. It’s a minimum of $1,325 to start the main event. There is also over $3,000 in lap money available.

There are also a series of contingency awards. Emory Transmission is contributing $1,000 for the driver who sets quick time. Heat-race winners will each receive $100, courtesy of O’Brien’s Fuel and Service. Denk Electric will pay out $300 to the Hard Charger, with Eshenaur Fuels posting a $500 prize for a last-lap pass. The Hard Luck Award is $250, courtesy of the Shoppes at Newberrytown.

“This is the last 410 Sprint Car race in the United States, and it’s important to make it a prestigious event to cap off what has been a great season of racing,” Gouse said. “It’s a celebration of 2023 and Les Stewart and deserves a purse that reflects that.

“We aren’t done yet. We hope to have more announcements leading up to raceday, both from a purse standpoint and things that we will have going on that weekend.”

 

Port Royal Speedway

Dylan Cisney scored one for the hometown crowd on Fan Appreciation Night at the Port Royal Speedway when he picked up his first career Foss Jewelers Labord Day Classic in the 69th running of the event presented by Tedd Reitz.

The win was worth $6000 and was exceptionally appropriate and popular with the fans for the kid who grew up just a few blocks from the Speedway and now serves as the Port Royal Mayor as an adult.

Weekend invader Bria Brown and Mike Walter II started on the front row for the event, and it was Brown getting the early jump on the field to lead the opening lap. Walter, Gerard McIntyre Jr, Anthony Macri and Cisney made up the rest of the top five.

Macri was on the move early as he moved into the final podium position on lap two. Meanwhile, 21st starter Sam Hafertepe Jr was already up to 14th by lap three. The events first caution flew three laps later when Austin Bishop came to a slow on the backstretch.

Brown again took off at the return to green flag action and two laps later Cisney moved into the fourth spot. With 15 laps remaining, Walter was able to track down Brown and the two were side at the flagstand. Walter used a slider in turn’s one and two to take over the top spot, while Macri followed suit to second in turn’s three and four.

Cisney worked his way into a podium spot within two more laps and with 11 laps to go he got by Macri for the runner-up position. It was perfect timing for ‘The Mayor’, as one lap later Walter was buried in heavy lapped traffic. This allowed Cisney to capitalize and grab the top spot with nine laps remaining.

One lap later Walter found speed once again and he got by Cisney exiting turn two on the bottom to take the lead back. However, the lead was short-lived as Cisney capitalized on Walter’s slip-up to take the lead back in turns one and two with 8 to go.

Walter set his sights back on Cisney entering turn three but had Macri to his outside working the middle line. The two made contact in the middle of the turn and Walter backed his way into the outside guardrail to bring out the caution for the second time.

A pair of incidents with four to go and two to go halted action over the final four laps, but Cisney was able to hold off all attempts from his competitors to take the checkered flag for his first second win of the season at the track.

Macri, Brown, McIntyre Jr. and Parker Price-Miller rounded out the top five. Danny Dietrich, Tyler Courtney, Devon Borden, Hafertepe Jr and Hunter Schuerenberg completed the top ten. Hafertepe Jr earned $500 from Valley Supply Inc. as the evening’s hard charger, while 13th-place finisher TJ Stutts scored a $1000 bonus as the night’s J&S Classics Warrior Award recipient via random draw.

Trent Yoder made a late pass of Cliff Brian Jr to score the wingless sportsman feature event win over Steve Wilbur, Brian Jr, Michael Smith, and Matt Cisney. Tony Jackson, Kevin Gutshall, Chad Thomas, Andy Burkhart, and Troy Fraker rounded out the top ten.

Adam Campbell led all thirty laps of the FWD 4-Cylinder event to pick up the win in the final feature event of the night. AJ Hoffner, Robby Carroll, Eric Boozel, and Ricky Weaver completed the top five.

Port Royal Speedway

Gregg Satterlee continued to write history in the ULMS Racing Series division and Devin Hart scored one for the family on the Limited Late Model side during the 20th Annual Butch Renninger Memorial Race Saturday night. Devon Borden also made a late race pass to score his fifth win of the season in Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Car competition.

Trevor Feathers and Satterlee lined up on the front row for the $7333 to win feature event and it was Feathers leading lap one. It only took one more lap for Satterlee to grab the top spot as he used the outside of the track in turn’s three and four.

Current track point leader, Rick Eckert, started fourth and as the leaders were in heavy lapped traffic, he moved into third on lap 12 of the 33-lap event. At lap 20, Feathers was all over the tail of Satterlee and Eckert was in hot pursuit as well.

However, every time Feathers got close to make a move, Satterlee was able to pull away and open the lead back up again. Neither Feathers or Eckert had anything for Satterlee as he cruised home to his third consecutive Renninger Memorial triumph and his fifth overall.

Feathers, Eckert, Tyler Emory and Dan Stone rounded out the top five. The event also saw multiple drivers throughout the night pick up various contingency awards thanks to many valuable sponsors.
In Dack’s Trucking Limited Late Model competition, Spike Moore and Devin Weyandt lined up on the front row. Moore, looking to defend his 2022 title in the event, grabbed the early lead with Hart settling into second.

Moore opened up a 1.464 second advantage over the first 10 laps of the event, but with 11 laps to go Hart had cut the distance in half. Three laps later the two drivers were nose to tail coming to the flagstand.

With five laps remaining, Hart muscled his way to the bottom of Moore in turn’s three and four to take the lead coming to the line. A caution for a slowing car on the frontstretch halted racing one lap later.

While the caution had the ability to set up some drama over the final four laps, Hart remained calm and consistent over the final four laps to pick up the $4333 win. Not only was the win a big one in terms of payday for the Juniata County local, but it was also an emotional win as the race honors his grandfather.

Moore, Shawn Shoemaker, Austin Berry and Casey Steinhoff rounded out the top five.

Marks Continues String Of Big Money Williams Grove Wins With Kline Tribute

Wolf gets career first W in 358s

9/1/23

Mechanicsburg – Brent Marks continued his string of 2023 big money race wins at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night when he dominated the C & D Rigging Jim and Sandy Kline Tribute Race for Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint cars.

Marks’ win was worth $7,100 thanks to a $1,100 bonus as posted by the Klines, former owners of the famed No. 22 sprint car driven by Greg Hodnett, Fred Rahmer and others.

The victory pushed Marks’ total earnings in his four oval wins to date this season to a cool $45,100 after also claiming the Tommy Hinnershitz Classic in April, the Mitch Smith Memorial in July and the Jack Gunn Memorial in August.

In the 20-lap 358 sprint main, Jayden Wolf scored his first ever win at the track, holding off Doug Hammaker.

Marks would lead all 25 laps of the Kline Tribute main event with Anthony Macri blasting into second on the first lap.

Macri started fourth in the field and got by Lucas Wolfe before squeezing past polesitter Brian Brown at the line to take second spot.

The leaders entered the rear of the field on the sixth lap, allowing Macri to cut into Marks’ advantage.

But Marks was handling masterfully around the speedway and he pulled a thread-the-needle move as he entered the third corner on lap 11 to put traffic behind him and more distance between he and Macri.

The pace was slowed for the only time with nine laps to go for a stopped Steve Buckwalter.

Macri attempted to stay close on the restart but Marks streaked away to the win by 3.177 seconds at the finish.

The checkered flag marked the 19th time that Marks and his No. 19M machine have stood in Williams Grove Speedway victory lane.

“Our car was just really good all night long,” Marks said.

“We try to get better every week.”

Macri was second followed by Danny Dietrich, TJ Stutts and Brian Brown.

Sixth through 10th went to Freddie Rahmer, Lance Dewease, Troy Wagaman Jr., Dylan Norris and Devon Borden.

Heats went to Dewease, TJ Stutts and Macri.

Marks claimed $300 for setting quick time in time trials with a lap of 17.367 seconds.

Rahmer was the PA Dyno Hard Charger.

Wolf wired the field for the 358 sprint win after starting second in the feature event.

Seventh starter Doug Hammaker blasted to the front during the early laps, moving into second with five away.

The race entered traffic on the 11th tour with Hammaker testing the outside on Wolf.

But a caution flag with six laps to go cleared the track and the way for Wolf to get his career first Williams Grove win.

He too claimed an $1,100 bonus as posted by Jim and Sandy Kline, taking home a total of $2,600 for the win.

Hammaker finished 1.859 seconds behind in second followed by Dylan Norris, Jay Galloway and Chad Criswell.

Sixth through 10th went to Steve Owings, Scott Fisher, Kyle Keen, Derek Locke and Chris Frank.

Heats went to Galloway, Wolf and Brady Dillon with the consolation going to Zach Newlin.

Locke was the PA Dyno Hard Charger.

Sprint Ownership Legacy Of Jim & Sandy Kline Honored Friday At Williams Grove

8/27/23

Mechanicsburg – The sprint car ownership career of one of racings most famous couples will be feted this Friday night, September 1 at Williams Grove Speedway when the historic oval spins off the Jim and Sandy Kline Tribute Race for Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprints, paying 6K to win as part of the Hoosier Diamond Series.

The HJ Towing & Recovery 358 sprints are also on the racing card along with fireworks.

The Klines of Grantville began their No. 22 ownership career in the region in 2001 when their son Dean had a need for speed.

With success at Williams Grove during that maiden season, Dean soon traded in his seat and along came Maryland’s Darren Eash to settle into it.

Eash scored eight times in 358 action for the Klines and three times in 410 action through early 2004 before an injury would sideline him and in would step Ohioan Kenny Jacobs.

Jacobs would run out the 2004 clock, picking up the final two Williams Grove victories of his storied career and the first of Kline’s ownership career before Cajun Sensation Jason Johnson scored the coveted seat for the 2005 season.

Destined for greatness, Johnson recorded three Grove wins that season including the teams very first checkers over the World of Outlaws.

Fred Rahmer held the reigns in 2006, taking 12 overall wins including a pair at Williams Grove and the track title.

And then very late in 2006, in stepped Tennessee native Greg Hodnett to round out Kline’s racing career through the 2010 campaign.

From late 2006 through 2010, the pairing of Klines and Hodnett would produce a total of 35 trips to victory lane including 10 at Williams Grove.

The team scored Williams Grove driver and owner titles in 2010 and an owners title in 2009.

They also scored the oval’s Diamond Series laurels in 2007 and in 2010.

Hodnett and the No. 22 bested the World of Outlaws at Williams Grove Speedway a total of four times including in the 2009, $50,000 to win National Open.

At the end of the day, the overall ownership tenure of the husband and wife Kline team would produce a total of nine 358 sprint car wins and 58 in the 410 sprint ranks.

They racked up three Pennsylvania Speedweek titles to go along with their Williams Grove track titles plus a track championship at Susquehanna Speedway all the while taking their 67 total combined wins at a total of nine different racetracks including at Knoxville, Iowa.

Fans, drivers and mechanics will gather at Williams Grove this Friday night to honor the Kline’s career with not only on-track action but with a pre-race meet and greet and live broadcast as well.

The broadcast will be carried live on BeerHill Gang TV on Facebook from 5:45 until 6:45 pm.

Former drivers Dean Kline, Darren Eash and Kenny Jacobs will be on hand along with mechanics Moon Byers, Matt Cramer and Dave Yingst.

Hodnett’s National Open Championship sprint car from the 2009 event will also be on display for the evening.

Adult general admission for September 1 is $20 with students ages 13-20 admitted for $10.

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

Brent Marks Scores Trifecta Of Williams Grove Memorials, Claims 8K In Gunn Race

Edkin and Jackson split sportsman mains

8/25/23

Mechanicsburg – Brent Marks completed the trifecta of claiming the three marquee memorial races at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, claiming the 41st annual York Building Products Jack Gunn Memorial for Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint cars, worth $8,000.

The Gunn victory comes on the heels of his wins in the July Mitch Smith Memorial and the April Tommy Hinnershitz Classic, giving the Myerstown driver a total of nearly $30,000 across the trio of wins.

In the winged super sportsman main, it was Kenny Edkin of Marysville making a last lap pass for the win while the wingless sportsman main went to Tony Jackson of Newville.

Marks started sixth in the 25-lap Jack Gunn Memorial and watched as second starter Justin Peck nearly flipped his machine in the first corner when the Indiana driver lost the handle on his No. 13 as he raced with polesitter Dylan Norris into the corner.

Norris took control and led the first lap before a four-car tangle in the second corner slowed the action.

Lance Dewease, who was making his Williams Grove debut in the Macri No. 39M, chased Norris on the restart along with Marks.

By lap four, Marks was challenging Dewease for second and the pair battled for the spot until Marks finally drove by on the seventh tour.

Norris entered the backmarkers on lap 10 with Marks in hot pursuit and by lap 15 Marks was ready to make his move.

Working traffic, when Norris left his high line in the first and second turns for the bottom groove, Marks was able to buzz the top and then drop off of the cushion onto the backstretch to pull even for control.

And that was all it took for Marks to speed to his 18th career oval win, and third of the season with a margin of victory timed at 2.282 seconds.

Norris held on for a career best second place finish followed by Dewease, Danny Dietrich and Troy Wagaman Jr.

Sixth through 10th went to Justin Peck, Freddie Rahmer, Camerson Smith, Devon Borden and Kyle Moody.

Heats went to Norris, Dietrich and Marks.

Peck set fast time with a lap of 16.934 seconds.

“I was a little leery whether we were gonna even make it out,” said Marks in victory lane.

“We changed the motor after the heat. We really had to hustle.”

Marks was the hard charger in the event.

Kenny Edkin worked on passing leader Scott Dellinger for the first 19 and a half laps of the 20-lap winged super sportsman feature before finally mustering enough muscle to snare the lead in the final corner.

Edkin repeatedly blasted to the outside of Dellinger in the third corner and would draw even for control only to see Dellinger lead back to the line.

During the final six laps ninth starter Tony Jackson came to third and made it a three car battle for the win that went right down to the line with Jackson also nipping Dellinger at the finish.

Dellinger ended up third followed by Russ Mitten and John Edkin.

Heats went to Matt Ondek, Mitten and John Edkin.

Edkin claimed the WC Eshenaur Last Lap Pass Award worth $250.

Jackson started eighth in the 20-lap wingless sportsman feature and made quick time getting to the front of the field.

He took the lead from Cliff Brian Jr. on the seventh tour before driving away for the victory.

Brian was second followed by Bill Brian Jr., Andy Burkhart and Chad Thomas.

It was Rahmer’s 12th win of the season, his fifth in a row and the 36th win of his career, putting him in sole possession of ninth place on Lincoln’s all-time win list.

Rahmer lined up tenth for the 30-lap feature, “The track was a little tougher to get up through.” Despite the track conditions Freddie still found his way to the front, “I got going pretty good in the middle of the race after having a couple of close calls early.”

JJ Loss and Michael Millard made up the front row for the drop of the green flag with Millard taking the lead coming out of turn 2. Loss stuck around and got by Millard to lead lap 1. Millard tried to battle back to retake the lead but Loss started to pull away.

The red flag came out on lap 3 when Tyler Ross spun out in turn 2 and collected Jordan Givler with both drivers landing on their sides. Loss led Millard, Glenndon Forsythe, Trey Hivner and Chris Arnold on the restart.

Loss got a good restart ahead of the field as Tim Glatfelter got by Arnold for fifth. Forsythe got by Millard for the runner-up spot and Freddie Rahmer made his way into the top five.

A three-car race for third was under way between Hivner Rahmer and Millard with Hivner holding the spot. Dylan Norris had made his way into the top five on lap 8.

Hivner used the high line to pull away from Rahmer. Things took a change though as Rahmer reeled in Hivner using the bottom and made the pass for third on lap 11. Rahmer then made quick work of Forsythe and moved into second on lap 13. Freddie had his sight set on Loss for the lead. Loss had lapped traffic looming in front of him as Rahmer locked in on him. Freddie took the lead at the halfway point just as lapped traffic came into play. As Rahmer worked through lapped traffic contact was made with a lapped car but he was able to save the car from disaster.

Norris was working his way up to the front and took third from Forsythe on lap 19. Dylan reeled in Loss and made the pass for second on lap 24. Rahmer had a seven second advantage over Norris with five laps to go.

Rahmer would get to the checkered flag just shy of seven seconds ahead of Norris. Loss held on to finish third and Cory Haas was fourth. Troy Wagaman crossed the line fifth, earning hard charger honors after driving through the field from his 21st starting spot.

Doug Hammaker Victorious in 358 Sprint Summer Series Event

Pole-sitter Chad Criswell took the lead with Cody Fletcher and Niki Young racing side by side for second. Young got by both Fletcher and Criswell to lead lap 1. Fletcher moved into second before the yellow flag flew on lap 1. Criswell, Kody Hartlaub and Jordan Strickler piled up in turns 3 and 4. Cole Small spun out to avoid the melee.

Young led Fletcher, Scott Fisher, Brett Strickler and Logan Rumsey to the cone for the restart. Young paced the field slowly allowing Fletcher to stay on his bumper to challenge for the lead. Rumsey was working on Strickler for fourth and took the spot. Doug Hammaker had worked his way up from his 10th starting spot to battle Strickler for fifth.

Fletcher was riding the cushion to work on Young for the lead but spun in turns 1 and 2 after contact with Young on lap 4 bringing out the yellow flag.

Fletcher rejoined the field and Young led Fisher, Rumsey Hammaker and Strickler on the restart. Rumsey went to the top and took second from Fisher. Hammaker joined in making it a three-car battle for second. Rumsey held on to the spot by a car length on lap 6 with Hammaker finally taking the position on lap 7.

Ashley Cappetta worked her way into the top five as Young and Hammaker raced side by side for the lead. Hammaker took the top spot on lap 9. Strickler was working on Cappetta to reclaim a spot inside the top five and took it back on lap 10.

Hammaker continued to ride the cushion with Young staying within striking distance as lapped traffic loomed ahead. Hammaker entered lap traffic on lap 14 and then the yellow flag waved again on lap 16 when Cole Small fell off the pace on the front stretch.

The top five for the restart were Hammaker, Young, Rumsey, Fisher and Strickler. Strickler went to the top to challenge Fisher for fourth and Brett took the spot. Fisher had it back on the next lap and the two would swap spots yet again before the red flag came out on lap 24. Wyatt Hinkle flipped in turn 4.

Hammaker, Young, Rumsey, Strickler and Fisher lined up for a green and checkered finish.

Hammaker took the checkered flag 1.071 seconds ahead of Young. Strickler crossed the line third and Rumsey was fourth. Fisher completed the top five.

Williams Grove Speedway                 8/20/23

Mechanicsburg - This Friday’s $6,000 to win York Building Products 41st annual Jack Gunn Memorial for 410 sprints at Williams Grove Speedway finds the track beginning its fifth decade of honoring the late oval promoter.

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

The 2023 event will be the 41st annual Gunn Memorial and the winner’s list is impressive to say the least.

Bobby Allen was the first winner in 1983 with additional names on the win list like Frankie Kerr, Jason Johnson, Lance Dewease, Greg Hodnett, Fred Rahmer, Daryn Pittman, Keith Kauffman and many others.

However no driver has claimed more Gunn Memorials over the years than the now retired Don Kreitz Jr.

Jack 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.

With his hand guiding them, Gunn first lured and then brought the likes of Jan Opperman, Bobby Allen, Steve Smith and more to the area to race, make a living and ultimately to make a home in this rich racing region.

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 Jack Gunn Memorial.

Gates will open at 5:30 pm with action getting underway at 7:30 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.

Kyle Moody challenged Rahmer for fifth, but Freddie had his eyes set on Tyler Esh in fourth. Rahmer went to work on Esh for fourth and took the spot on lap 7.

As Freddie was reeling in Hartlaub, Loss pulled into the infield as he was running second moving Hartlaub into second and Rahmer into third.

As Spence worked his way through lapped traffic Hartlaub started reeling him in, getting Spence’s lead down to just .321 seconds at the half-way point. Spence, Hartlaub and Rahmer were in a fierce three-car battle for the lead with Hartlaub taking the top spot leaving Spence and Rahmer to drag race for second. Rahmer had the runner-up spot by a nose at the line on lap 17.

Hartlaub went low into turn 1 to block Rahmer’s line and the two made contact, with Rahmer taking the lead out of turn 2.

Dave Brown Wins Exciting 305 Sprint Feature

After qualifying was completed on Saturday night, the 41-car field of 305 sprints was whittled down to 24 cars for the 20-lap feature. Larry McVay was at the helm with Owen Dimm lined up to his outside. McVay took the lead when the green flag waved with Dave Brown and Dimm racing wheel to wheel for second. Brown had the advantage and took second at the line. Zach Rhodes was running fourth and looked to the inside of Dimm for third but could not make the pass.

Dimm was reeling in Brown to challenge for second when the red flag came out on lap 4. Ken Duke, Nolan Grove and Kenny Heffner got together on the front stretch with Grove taking a wild ride.

McVay got a solid jump on the restart but Doug Dodson flipped in turn 3 bringing out the red flag yet again.

The top five for the restart were McVay, Brown, Dimm, Rhodes and Kruz Kepner.

Brown took the lead on the restart by half a car at the line with McVay staying within striking distance. Logan Spahr got by Kepner for a spot inside the top five.

Brown started to pull away from the rest of the field at the halfway point as Dimm was closing in on McVay to challenge for second. Kepner got by Spahr to retake fifth.

Dimm moved into second with a pass coming out of turn 4. Owen used the high side of the track to close in on Brown and took the lead with four laps to go. With lapped traffic in play Brown pulled a slider with two laps to go but could not make the pass. With the white flag waving, Brown was able to take the lead from Dimm and held on for the win.

Brown got to the checkered flag just .746 seconds ahead of Dimm. McVay crossed the line third and Rhodes was fourth. Spahr got by Kepner yet again to finish fifth.

Kenny Edkin Wires Field for Super Sportsman Victory

Pole-sitter Kenny Edkin took the lead when the green flag dropped for the 20-lap feature. Behind Edkin a four-car battle for second was underway between Scott Dellinger, John Edkin, Tony Jackson and Russ Mitten. John had the spot with Dellinger in third, Mitten in fourth and Jackson in fifth.

Dellinger went to the high side to work on John for second and took the spot on lap 3.

The yellow flag flew on lap 4 when Timmy Barrick spun in turn 2 and collected Drew Sullivan and Jamie Rickert.

Kenny led Dellinger, John, Mitten and Jackson to the cone for the restart. Kenny got a good jump and John got his nose under Dellinger but could not make the pass to retake second. Mitten used the high line to get by John coming out of turn 4 to take third. Jackson followed taking fourth from John.

Mitten bobbled in turn 4 which allowed Jackson to get by for third. Jay Fannasy entered the picture when he started to challenge Mitten for fourth. Fannasy took the spot at the halfway point and went to work on Jackson for third.

Jackson put some distance between himself and Fannasy and went to work reeling in Dellinger to challenge for second. Jackson pulled a slider in turn 2 taking second with five laps to go.

Fannasy was on the heels of Dellinger with two laps to go for third.

Kenny Edkin wired the field and took the checkered flag 2.156 seconds ahead of Jackson. Dellinger crossed the line third and Fannasy was fourth. Mitten completed the top five.

Wolfe, Dietrich, Norris And Spence Split Williams Grove Sprint Mains

Mechanicsburg – Lucas Wolfe, Danny Dietrich, Dylan Norris and Kyle Spence split the 410 and 358 sprint car features at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday Night.

Both Wolfe and Norris were victorious in the make-up 410 and 358 mains postponed by rain on August 4.

Dietrich and Spence sped to the wins in the regularly scheduled events slated for Friday night.

The make-up 410 feature restarted with one lap complete and Cameron Smith at the helm and Wolfe restarting third.

Wolfe came to second on the second lap and chased Smith who held a two second lead over the field by lap 10.

A restart with 10 laps to go in the 25 lap main closed the gap for Wolfe and when action resumed he swooped his No. 5W low in the first corner to net control and run to the win by .684 seconds.

Freddie Rahmer rode home third followed by TJ Stutts, Devon Borden and Troy Wagaman Jr.

Norris led every circuit of the make-up 358 sprint main after starting second in the field.

It was his second career limited sprint car win at the track where he also competes in 410 action.

Kody Hartlaub, Chad Criswell, Steve Owings and Logan Rumsey chased Norris to the finish line.

The regularly scheduled Yellow Breeches 500 feature for the 410 sprints saw no less than three different leaders with Dietrich becoming the final pacesetter with two laps to go.

Cameron Smith again led the lion’s share of the race before succumbing to pressure late in the race, this time in the form of Devon Borden.

Borden’s run at the front would be brief however as fifth starting Dietrich was hot on his tail, diving under him for the lead the first time with four laps to go before making the move stick two laps later with a low move in the first turn.

The feature was marred by a seven-car fracas with 15 laps to go when Dietrich got together with Freddie Rahmer as the pair was racing for position.

The result saw the cars of Austin Bishop, Wolfe, Rahmer, Tyler Reeser, Kyle Moody, Ryan Newton and JJ Loss all suffering damage.

Borden finished 1.393 seconds behind at the finish with Troy Wagaman Jr., Smith and Billy Dietrich rounding out the top five.

It was Dietrich’s first win of the season at Williams Grove.

Heats went to Reeser and Smith.

Doug Hammaker would lead only the first lap of the regular 358 sprint main before Kyle Spence took over for his first career win at the oval.

Hammaker contested the spot more than once during the 20-lap feature as did Chris Frank during the mid-stages but Spence prevailed by .551 seconds for the checkers.

Hammaker was second followed by Dylan Norris, Frank and Kody Hartlaub.

Heats went to Chad Criswell, Spence and Preston Lattomus.

PA Dyno Hard Chargers on the night were Scott Fisher and Derek Lock in 358 sprints and TJ Stutts and Nash Ely in 410 sprints.

Port Royal Speedway – PORT ROYAL, Penn (August 6, 2023)- In a race where it seemed that nobody wanted to win it, Kody Lehman capitalized to score his first career Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Car feature event over Logan Wagner, TJ Stutts, Blane Heimbach and Devon Borden.

The win was worth $5000 and added Lehman’s name to the historic list of drivers who have claimed victory at the Juniata County oval.

Tyler Walton and Lucas Wolfe lined up on the front row for the feature event and it was Walton getting the early jump on the field. Ninth place starter Borden was on the move early as he cracked the top five with a two-for-one move on lap three.

By lap seven Walton, who was filling in for Bill Jones Jr in the number 12J, was mired in heavy lapped traffic when disaster struck. Walton attempted to go to the bottom of a lapper entering turn one when he lost control and slid backwards up into the outside guardrail. With nowhere to go, second place Lucas Wolfe was also collected with heavy impact and both cars would be done for the night.

Third place Mike Walter II inherited the lead because of the accident, and he quickly opened a large lead after a return to green over Lehman, who had been running fourth prior to the accident.

Jeff Halligan, who started seventh for the A-main, got by Borden for the final podium spot on lap nine. Two laps later disaster struck for the second time of the night for a leader as Walter shredded a left rear tire in turn three and came to a slow against the outside frontstretch guardrail.

Borden also entered the pit area while under caution with an issue while running inside of the top five. He would rejoin the field.

Now the leader, Lehman blasted out front following the restart. 20th place starter Stutts cracked the top five one lap later. It only took five laps for Lehman to hit the tail end of the field and as a result Halligan was chipping away at the leader.

However, his night ended five laps later when he blew a tire entering turn three and went flipping wildly out over the outside guardrail. He would walk away from the incident unharmed.

This set up a three-lap shootout for the win, with Heimbach in second followed by Wagner, Steve Buckwalter and Stutts. Lehman stayed true to the top on the restart, while Heimbach tried the middle in turn’s one and two. He blasted off the cushion down the backstretch and from there he just had to hold on.

Wagner, making his first start of the year in the Kreitz Racing 69k, moved into second and Stutts continued his march forward as he gained third. Both drivers battled for the runner-up spot over the final two circuits, but it was all Lehman as he came to the checkered in front of an enthusiastic crowd for the win.

Buckwalter, Mike Wagner, Lance Dewease, Garrett Bard, and Dylan Cisney rounded out the top ten. Stutts earned the $500 Valley Supply Hard Charger Award while 16th-place finisher Dustin Baney scored the $1000 J&S Classics Warrior Award via random draw.

Abbottstown, PA (August 5, 2023) – Freddie Rahmer drove from the fourteenth starting spot to his tenth win of the season on Saturday night at Lincoln Speedway. It is the first time Rahmer has hit double digits in wins at the 3/8th-mile oval. The last driver to score 10 wins in one season was Freddie’s father, Fred Rahmer, in 2004.

Two young-guns shared the front row for the start of the 30-lap DCS School of Driving Night feature. Australian driver, Ryan Newton, started on the pole in his second ever appearance at Lincoln. JJ Loss, in his fourth appearance at the track, shared the front row with Newton.

Newton shot out to the lead with Loss holding off Michael Millard as he challenged for second. Riley Emig and Glenndon Forsythe raced side by side for fourth with Forsythe taking the spot at the line. Emig got by Forsythe for fourth on the following lap and went to work on Millard for third. Emig took third on lap 3. Chad Trout got by two cars in one lap to move from sixth to fourth on lap 5 before the caution came out. Danny Dietrich and Brandon Rahmer both sat in turn 4, bringing out the yellow flag. Rahmer rejoined the field while Dietrich’s night came to an end.

Newton’s 2.7 second lead was erased when the caution came out. Newton led Loss Emig, Trout and Millard for the restart. Newton got a good jump and Trout looked to the outside of Emig but could not make the pass. Emig slid under Loss for second but Loss held the spot by inches at the line. Emig took over the runner-up spot by a nose on the next lap. Trout got by Loss for third as Troy Wagaman made his way into the top five. Wagaman made quick work of Loss and took fourth on lap 12. Freddie Rahmer was not far behind and raced wheel to wheel with Loss for fifth taking the spot before the caution came out on lap 15. Michael Millard slowed on the front stretch, just as Newton had caught the tail end of the field, bringing out the yellow.

The top five for the restart were Newton, Emig, Trout, Wagaman and Rahmer. Once again Trout looked to get by Emig for second on the restart and again Emig held the spot. Trout had better luck the next lap and got under Emig for second in turns 3 and 4. Rahmer was also on the move, getting under Wagaman for fourth.

The yellow flag waved again on lap 18 when Tim Wagaman slowed in turns 1 and 2.

Newton paced the field ahead of Trout, Emig, Rahmer and Wagaman for the restart. Trout went low and Newton went high as they entered turn 1 with Newton holding on to the lead. Rahmer got by Emig for third and then moved his way into second with 10 laps to go. Cory Haas worked his way into the top five on lap 20.

Rahmer was reeling in Newton. Wagaman got by Trout for third with five laps to go. Rahmer kept trying slide jobs in turns 1 and 2 for the lead but could not make the pass. Freddie finally got one to stick and had the lead by just .016 seconds over Newton as the white flag waved.

The top three crossed the line with less than a second separating them. Rahmer took the checkered flag .322 seconds ahead of Newton and Wagaman was third. Haas finished fourth and Trout completed the top five.

Kenny Miller III Wires the Field for USAC Victory

In their only appearance in the pigeon hills in 2023, Kenny Miller III scored a win in USAC East Coast competition. It was Miller’s second win of the year with the series. Miller and Preston Lattomus shared the front row of the 25-lap feature with Miller taking the lead when the green flag dropped. Lattomus was left to fend off a challenge from Carmen Perigo for second. Perigo had second at the line.

JT Ferry and Steven Drevicki battled for fourth with Drevicki taking the spot.

Lap 3 saw the red flag come out as Chris Allen took a wild ride on the front stretch. Bruce Buckwalter, Jonathan Swanson, Scott Frack, Mike Thompson and Austin Graby were also involved.

Miller led Perigo, Lattomus, Drevicki and Ferry to the cone for the restart. Perigo looked to Miller’s outside in turns 1 and 2 but Miller held the lead. The yellow flag came out on lap 4 for Patrick Chilmonik who spun in turn 2.

Perigo again, looked to the outside of Miller on the restart and could not make the pass for the lead. Drevicki got his nose under Lattomus for third and took the spot. Briggs Danner got by Ferry on lap 7 for a spot inside the top five. Perigo maintained a different line than Miller, trying to gain on the leader.

Both Perigo and Drevicki closed in on Miller making it a three-car battle for the lead. Miller and Drevicki were both sticking to the low side of the track with Perigo opting for a higher line. Drevicki got under Perigo for second at the line by inches on lap 10 and Danner moved into fourth.

Perigo was not going away as Drevicki went to work on Miller for the lead. Danner caught Perigo to challenge for third and took the spot on lap 17 by a car length. Perigo was on Danner’s bumper trying to take the spot back.

Lapped traffic loomed ahead of Miller with five laps to go. Drevicki showed his nose to Miller as the flagman signaled two to go.

Miller wired the field and got to the checkered flag .359 seconds ahead of Drevicki. Danner crossed the line third and Perigo was fourth. Joey Amantea completed the top five.

Cliff Brian Jr. Wins in Wingless Super Sportsman

Cliff Brian Jr. and Andy Burkhart raced side by side at the line, through turns 1 and 2 and down the back stretch for the lead. Brian finally had the advantage as they went into turn 3 which left Burkhart to fend off Billy Brian’s challenge for second. Billy got second on lap 2 and Sam Leonard followed, moving into third and sending Burkhart back to fourth. Burkhard, Matt Cisney and Eric Walker raced three-wide for fourth with Cisney taking the spot.

Cliff was pulling away from the field when the yellow flag flew on lap 9. Jason Gindlesperger spun in turn 1 collecting Leonard who was running third.

Cliff, Billy, Cisney, Walker and Burkhart made up the top five for the restart. Trent Yoder was looking for a way around Burkhart for a spot inside the top five. Yoder made the pass on lap 10 before the yellow flag came out again on lap 11. Jason Failor, Gene Eppley and Kevin Gutshall got together in turn 4.

The top five for the restart were Cliff, Billy, Cisney, Walker and Yoder. Yoder got by Walker for fourth on the restart and Cisney and Billy raced side by side for second. Cisney took the spot. Troy Fraker and Billy Brian spun in turn 2 on lap 13 bringing out the caution.

Billy had been running third which led to a shake-up in the top five for the restart. Cliff led Cisney, Yoder, Walker and Burkhart to the cone. Steve Wilbur was working on Burkhart for a spot in the top five and Cisney was closing in on Cliff to challenge for the lead.

Wilbur got by Burkhart to move into fifth on lap 14. Both Cisney and Yoder had closed in on Cliff to make it a three-car race for the lead. Cisney and Yoder were side by side for second and Wilbur moved into fourth. Yoder had second by a nose at the line on lap 19.

Jason Moore spun in turn 4 with two laps to go bringing out the yellow flag.

Cliff, Yoder, Cisney, Wilbur and Walker lined up for the green, white, checkered finish.

Wilbur showed his nose under Cisney for third on the restart but did not make the pass. The two continued to race side by side as the white flag waved.

Cliff took the checkered flag a half second ahead of Yoder. Cisney crossed the line third and Wilbur was fourth. Walker completed the top five.

Saturday, August 19, 2023 (7PM) BARRY SKELLY MEMORIAL: 410 Sprints and 358 Sprints (“MacMor Construction Summer Series” event)

Abbottstown, PA (July 29, 2023) – Freddie Rahmer’s ninth win of the season came in thrilling fashion with a last lap pass for the lead after starting twelfth. Rahmer was the first car knocked out of the Australian Scramble earlier in the night, lining him up twelfth for the start of the $7,000 Rack Daddies Rumble. Freddie worked his way up through the field and found himself in second behind Danny Dietrich with eleven laps to go. The field lined up for a restart with five laps remaining and that was Rahmer’s opportunity to work on Dietrich for the lead. Rahmer was able to get a good run off the top of turn 4 but it was not quite enough to get by Dietrich for the top spot. Rahmer slid Danny in turns 1 and 2 after the white flag flew and took the lead down the back stretch on the final lap for the win.

Michael Millard earned the pole for the start of the 35 lap feature via the Australian Scramble. He beat Glenndon Forsythe in the final round for the spot. Not long after the green flag dropped, the red flag was displayed before a lap was completed. Brandon Rahmer flipped in turn 2 and Jordan Givler sat at the bottom of the track with damage to his #90 as well.

The field lined up for a complete restart with Millard taking the lead. Chris Arnold showed his nose under Forsythe in turns 1 and 2 but Aaron Bollinger, who had advanced his starting position from sixth to third through the Scramble, battled back and crossed the line ahead of Arnold for third.

Both Danny Dietrich and Freddie Rahmer were working their way through the field and had a side by side battle for sixth on lap 9. Arnold found a way by Bollinger and took third on lap 10. Dietrich worked his way into the top five on lap 11 and Rahmer followed.

Arnold was closing in on Forsythe for second and took the spot on lap 14. Danny was up to third on lap 15 and both Dietrich and Arnold were reeling in Millard. Millard and Danny were racing the high line with Arnold opting for the bottom, as the three battled for the lead. The top three were three-wide coming out of turn 4 when Dietrich took second on lap 18 and got under Millard for the lead in turn 3 on the next lap. Arnold got by Millard for second as Rahmer worked his way into third.

Troy Wagaman was closing in on Millard for a spot in the top five and took the position on lap 23.

Freddie got under Arnold as they raced into turn 3 and took second on lap 24, just as Danny was getting into lapped traffic.

Bollinger reclaimed third from Arnold on lap 27.

Danny and Freddie had both moved to the bottom of the track in lapped traffic when the yellow flag flew on lap 30 when Tyler Esh hit the wall in turn 4 and slowed on the front stretch.

The top five for the restart with five laps to go were Danny, Freddie, Bollinger, Arnold and Wagaman. Danny had a solid restart and went low into turn 1 with Freddie going to the top. Wagaman got by Arnold on the restart for fourth.

Rahmer was all over Danny for the lead as the laps wound down. Danny was running the bottom and Rahmer was riding the high line around the 3/8-mile oval. Rahmer slid Danny in turn 1 after the white flag flew to take the lead. Rahmer scored his ninth win of the season by getting to the checkered flag just .394 seconds ahead of Dietrich. Bollinger crossed the line third and Wagaman was fourth. Arnold completed the top five.

Frankie Herr Scores 358 Sprint Car Victory

Pole sitter, Jordan Strickler, took the lead when the green flag dropped with Tylar Rutherford in second holding off Jayden Wolf. Wyatt Hinkle brought out the yellow before a lap was completed as he sat with a flat tire in turn 4.

The field lined up for a complete restart. Strickler shot to the lead again with Rutherford on his tail. Frankie Herr, from his fourth place starting spot, used the high line in turns 2 and 4 to take the lead at the line. Rutherford moved into second and Hammaker got by Strickler for third.

Hammaker was closing in on Rutherford for second and had the spot on lap 6.

Herr had a 4.5 second lead over Hammaker as he caught the tail end of the field. Heavy lapped traffic for Herr allowed Hammaker to close in and get the lead down to 1.8 seconds with 7 laps to go. With five laps to go Hammaker could see Herr clearly as there were no lapped cars between them. Herr started to pull away again from Hammaker and had his lead back up to 2.2 seconds when the white flag waved.

Herr scored his third career 358 sprint car victory by 1.894 seconds over Hammaker. Wolf finished third and Rutherford was fourth. Cody Fletcher completed the top five.

Buckwalter Bolts To Williams Grove Sprints Win, Newlin Beats Hartlaub For 358s

7/28/23

Mechanicsburg – Steve Buckwalter led flag to flag to pick up the 410 sprint car victory at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, taking $5,000 for his 13th career win at the oval.

In the 25-lap 358 sprint Summer Series event, Zach Newlin lost the lead late but reclaimed the top spot to nab the second win of his career at the oval.

The 25-lap 410 sprint car feature was marred by a vicious first turn crash involving Justin Whittall and TJ Stutts as they raced for position inside the top 10.

As the pair raced down the frontstretch with five laps complete, they touched wheels as they reached maximum speed at the end of the straightaway.

The result saw Stutts flip multiple times, ending up in the middle of turn one while Whittall flipped high up and into the catch fence and then out of the speedway near the track office before landing near a tree.

Stutts made his way back to the pit area while Whittall was transported to a local hospital for observation.

The leader was chased by Austin Bishop throughout the race while Devon Borden and Jeff Halligan battled for the third spot, exchanging the position multiple times.

Buckwalter withstood a total of four restarts during the event but was able to pull comfortably away from Bishop each time action resumed.

In the end the Royersford driver took the victory by .885 seconds ahead of Bishop.

Borden finally got the best of Halligan for third with five laps to go.

Halligan was fourth followed by Troy Wagaman Jr.

Sixth through 10th went to Freddie Rahmer, Lucas Wolfe, Cameron Smith, Aaron Bollinger and Ryan Newton.

It was Australian racer Newton’s first ever race at the speedway.

Heats went to Buckwalter, Whittall and Wolfe.

Rahmer was the PA Dyno Hard Charger.

Second starter Chris Frank led the first nine laps of the 358 sprint main before third starter Zach Newlin drove into the lead.

Seventh starter Kody Hartlaub was the driver on the move during the late stages of the race, taking second with 10 laps to go.

Hartlaub then ran down Newlin to take his turn at the lead.

He shot by Newlin in the first and second turns on lap 21 before Newlin regained his composure and reclaimed the spot in turn three.

After the wake-up call, Newlin pulled away to the win over Hartlaub.

After starting 11th, Doug Hammaker finished third followed by Frank and Derek Locke.

Sixth through 10th went to Logan Rumsey, Steve Owings, Justin Foster, Matt Findley and Cody Phillips.

Heats went to Hammaker, Phillips and Rumsey.

Locke was the PA Dyno Hard Charger.

Newlin became the fourth winner in as many races at the track this season.

17th Annual Living Legends Dream Race on Tap

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway, PORT ROYAL, Penn. (July 27, 2023)- Port Royal Speedway returns this Saturday, July 29th, with the 17th Annual Living Legends Dream Race at Port Royal Speedway sponsored by Mike Cleck Paving & Sealcoating, Inc. and presented by Tedd Reitz. The event will feature both the Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Cars and the Selinsgrove Ford Super Late Models.

The 410 Sprint Cars will compete in a pair of Twin-25 $10,000 to win feature events and each feature will pay $700 to take the green flag. Tow money will be $200. The first feature event will serve as the makeup for the PA Speedweek Greg Hodnett Classic event.

We’ll utilize the PA Speedweek format for all qualifying for the first feature event and the winner of that event will pull and invert of either 6,7 or 8 to set the lineup for the second feature.

The winner of the super late model event will take home $5000 and it will pay $400 to start.

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 (2), Rick Lafferty, Lance Dewease (2) AJ Flick, and Anthony Macri have all won the prize event. Danny Dietrich is the most recent winner in the event.

Combined with all three feature events and tow money, the total purse is expected to climb past $100,000 total. This keeps with the tradition of ensuring that the event remains one of the highest paying unsanctioned events in the state and serves as a giveback to the drivers partaking in weekly racing locally.

This event serves as the final event on the schedule where rainchecks from the Pennsylvania Speedweek swing will be accepted. Stay tuned for any other updates and we look forward to seeing you at the track!

$30 GA, $20 STUDENTS, $40 PITS
Gates Open at 4:00PM, Racing at 7:00pm

 

 

THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES

RICO ABREU WINS INAUGURAL RICH MAR FLORIST HIGH LIMIT SPRINT CAR SERIES EVENT POWERED BY LEVAN MACHINE AND PRESENTED BY HVAC DISTRIBUTORS AT GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY WEDNESDAY

BECHTELSVILLE, PA (July 26, 2023) – In front of a capacity crowd at the Grandview Speedway, Rico Abreu of St. Helena, California won the Rich Mar Florist High Limit Sprint Car Series main event powered by Levan Machine & Truck Equipment and presented by HVAC Distributors on Wednesday Night. Abreu -- claiming his second consecutive 410 Sprint Car win at the Bechtelsville dirt track – took home the $23,023 winner’s share as part of the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series. A total purse of $80,000 was paid to the competitors.

“This was just good racing,” Abreu claimed after climbing out of his No. 24 machine. “My car was unbelievable, we set it up for the end of this race, and I just had to let the car come to me.”

Abreu was slated to start fourth on the 24-car field, however outside polesitter, Tim Buckwalter suffered a motor issue following the dash, retiring his machine and criss-crossing the field.

Hunter Schuerenberg – inheriting the outside pole -- shot to the early lead overtaking Kyle Larson as the green flag dropped but a tangle on the initial start would negate the battle and ultimately end the night for Freddie Rahmer, the victim of the on-track collision.

With a second chance at keeping Schuerenberg at bay, Larson powered into turn one holding the top spot and bringing Justin Peck with him. Larson and Peck raced side-by-side as the laps ticked away giving Abreu the opportunity to make up ground on the leaders.

Abreu moved passed Peck on lap 12 and set his sights on Larson.

The caution flag flew at the halfway mark with Peck – running comfortably in the third position – stopped with a right rear flat tire retiring Peck’s No. 13 machine from competition at lap 17.

The move of the race took place at the next restart, with Larson selecting the high side and Abreu choosing the inside. Abreu hammered down into turn 1, overtaking the lead from Larson and setting a rapid pace in the second half of the 35-lap main event.

Larson showed signs of life, closing in the final circuits of the event. However, Abreu remained dominant etching his name in the Greg Hodnett Cup trophy for the second time, claiming the inaugural High Limit Sprint Car Series win at Grandview, and his second Thunder on the Hill series win.

Larson – a 4-time Grandview winner -- would settle for the runner-up spot, with Brent Marks in the third position, Danny Dietrich in fourth, and Cory Eliason finishing in fifth.

Kasey Kahne finished in sixth from the 19th starting position. Cap Henry finished in the seventh position, Kyle Reinhardt in eighth, Hunter Schuerenberg settled for ninth and Lance Dewase finished in tenth aboard the Macri Racing No. 39M.

Heat races for the High Limit Sprint Car Series were won by Kyle Larson, Justin Peck and Rico Abreu. Larson set fast time with a lap of 11.767 and consequently won the Dash to set the starting line-up. Kasey Kahne was the winner of the 10-Lap B-Main.

The inaugural High Limit Sprint Car Series race at Grandview was postponed from Tuesday, July 25 instituting a rain date for the event.

The Thunder on the Hill Racing Series will return to Grandview Speedway for it’s 35th season of racing action in 2024, more information will be made available online at www.tothracing.com

Million Dollar Man Schuchart Steals Williams Grove Loot

Hanover native makes last corner pass for Summer Nationals win

7/21/23

Mechanicsburg – An energized Logan Schuchart drove his C & D Rigging No. 1S into the lead ahead of Brad Sweet as the pair raced to the checkers on Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway in the opening night of the 2023 Champion Racing Oil World of Outlaws Summer Nationals.

Schuchart chased polesitter Brad Sweet for the entire distance after the start of the 25-lap sprint car feature until the pair exited the fourth corner with the checkered flag in sight.

That’s when Schuchart struck to steal the $15,000 loot from Sweet’s pocket a little more than a week after becoming a millionaire by claiming the Eldora Speedway Million for sprint cars.

After entering traffic on lap eight, Sweet tried to get away from the field with good success during the mid-stages of the race.

Schuchart struggled with traffic as Sweet raced through it and with 10 laps to go, Sweet held nearly a straightaway lead over the field.

But Schuchart soldiered on and as the race entered its final five circuits, Sweet began hanging on the cushion in the first corner and by the time the white flag waved, Schuchart was within striking distance.

The Hanover native cruised his sprinter into the first turn on the low side and pulled alongside Sweet as the pair traversed the corners.

Sweet then got back ahead as the raced moved onto the backstretch before shooting low into the third turn while Schuchart sailed his machine in on the high side.

And as Sweet came up off of the turn to catch the cushion and ride to the win, Schuchart dropped off of it and swung to Sweet’s inside for a drag race to the finish in which he nosed ahead.

The margin of victory for Schuchart’s first World of Outlaws win at the track was .078 seconds.

Aside from the posted $15,000 winner’s share, Schuchart collected a $500 bonus from WC Eshenaur and Sons for a last lap pass for the win.

It was his fourth overall victory at Williams Grove in a 410 sprint car but his first while in outlaws competition.

His grandfather and car owner Bobby Allen owns 36 victories at the oval.

Sweet was gunning for his second Summer Nationals win in a row and his second of the year at the track after scoring a win there in May.

Round one of the Summer Nationals also served to crown the 2023 Morgan Cup Champion after the race was lost to rain in May.

By virtue of the win falling to an outlaws regular, Morgan Cup laurels and the trophy cup itself will now spend the next year at outlaws headquarters in North Carolina.

Heats went to Carson Macedo, Schuchart, Gio Scelzi and Cory Eliason.

Sweet won the dash to earn the pole for the feature while Spencer Bayston won the B Main.

Macedo set quick time with a lap of 17.056 seconds.

Feature Finish:

410 sprints, 25 laps: 1. Logan Schuchart, 2. Brad Sweet, 3. Rico Abreu, 4. Sheldon Haudenschild, 5. Carson Macedo, 6. Brent Marks, 7. Danny Dietrich, 8. Cory Eliason, 9. Gio Scelzi, 10.

Abbottstown, PA (July 15, 2023) – Freddie Rahmer drove from his ninth place starting spot to his eighth win of the season at Lincoln on Saturday night. It was also Rahmer’s 32nd career win at Lincoln, putting him one win away from tying Greg Hodnett’s win total on the all-time win list.

Freddie found his way into the top five from his ninth starting spot only 5 laps into the 30-lap feature, “We had a decent start.” Rahmer then sat in fourth for a few laps as two cars battled in front of him, “I was just trying to be patient to see where to be. Those guys were running side by side and running a good pace early on.” Freddie got by Matt Campbell for third and then made a huge move, passing two cars, to take the lead on the following lap. Rahmer held on to the lead during three restarts in the second half of the race and went on to score the win on Dean’s Auto Plaza Night.

Glenndon Forsythe had the pole for the start with Domenic Melair lined up on the outside of the front row. Forsythe had the lead at the line and slid up the track in turn 2 to take away Melair’s line. Cameron Smith and Melair battled for second with Melair holding the spot on lap 1. Smith took the runner-up spot on lap 2 coming out of turn 4.

Matt Campbell and Tyler Esh were fighting for fourth place when Freddie Rahmer joined in on the action. Rahmer got by Esh for fifth on lap 4 and then got by Melair for fourth two laps later.

Campbell slid Smith in turn 2 for second but Smith challenged Campbell down the back stretch. Smith pulled a wheelie coming out of turn 4 and still held onto second at the line. Campbell and Smith continued to swap second back and forth as Rahmer sat back and watched. Rahmer got under Campbell in turn 2 and took third on lap 11. Freddie then went to work on Smith for second but got by both Smith and Forsythe in one move to take the lead on lap 12.

Rahmer entered lapped traffic on lap 14 and Campbell had reeled in Smith again to challenge for second. Campbell and Smith raced wheel to wheel for the spot on lap 18. Campbell went to the outside of Smith and took the spot at the line on lap 19 before the caution came out. The yellow flew for Trey Hivner who sat spun around in turn 4.

Freddie, Campbell, Smith, Kyle Moody and Melair were the top five for the restart. Rahmer was on the gas and got a solid start. Moody looked to the outside of Smith for third but could not make the pass. Smith then got his nose under Campbell to retake second, but there was no pass.

Troy Wagaman drove his way into the top five with a pass of Esh on lap 21. The yellow flag came out again on lap 21 when Billy Dietrich slowed on the back stretch.

Rahmer led Campbell, Smith, Moody and Wagaman to the cone for the restart. Campbell went to the top and got some momentum but Smith was still able to get a nose under him and took second. Wagaman got by Moody for fourth.

The red flag flew on lap 25 when JJ Loss got upside down in turns 3 and 4.

Rahmer, Smith, Campbell, Wagaman and Moody paced the field for the green flag. Wagaman was all over Campbell on the restart and took third on lap 27. Tyler Ross worked his way into the top five by Moody on lap 27 and went to work on Campbell.

Freddie took the checkered flag 1.890 seconds ahead of Smith. Wagaman crossed the line third and Campbell was fourth. Ross completed the top five.

Logan Rumsey Wins with Thrilling Last Lap Pass

Devin Gundrum and Mike Bittinger sat on the front row for the drop of the green on Saturday night’s 20-lap 358 sprint car feature. Gundrum took the lead with Bittinger holding off a challenge from Matt Findley for second. Findley got by Bittinger and took second. Findley also got his nose under Gundrum to lead lap 1 by inches at the line.

Bittinger went to work on Gundrum for second and took the spot on lap 4. Nash Ely and Chris Frank battled for fifth with side by side action at the line on lap 5. Ely had the slight advantage to hold on to fifth. Cody Fletcher moved into third on lap 6 and Ely took fourth on lap 7.

Fletcher had a good run off of turn 2 to challenge for second and took the spot coming out of turn 4 on lap 8. A four-car battle for third between Bittinger, Ely, Frank and Logan Rumsey was taking place with Ely claiming the spot on lap 10.

Cole Knopp sat up against the wall in turns 3 and 4 on lap 10, bringing out the yellow flag.

Findley led Fletcher, Ely, Bittinger and Rumsey on the restart. Fletcher went to the outside on the restart and was on Findley’s tail tank but could not make the pass. Ely and Rumsey raced side by side for third with Rumsey taking the spot.

Fletcher took the lead on lap 12 but Findley was right there to try and take the top spot back but did not succeed.

Lap 13 saw another caution when Cole Knopp slowed on the back stretch. The top five for the restart were Fletcher, Findley, Rumsey, Ely and Frank. Fletcher had a strong restart and Kody Hartlaub worked his way into the top five.

Findley was up next to Fletcher to try and regain the lead in turns 3 and 4 but did not make the pass. Fletcher went down to block the bottom but Findley reclaimed the lead on lap 16. Rumsey entered the battle for the lead and Fletcher went to the top in turns 1 and 2 to block Rumsey’s charge to the front. Logan took second from Fletcher on lap 18 and was closing in on Findley when the white flag waved. Rumsey bounced off the wall coming out of turn 4 and made the pass for the lead and the win at the line.

Rumsey got to the checkered flag just .039 seconds ahead of Findley. Fletcher crossed the line third and Hartlaub was fourth. Frank completed the top five.

Connor took third back from Dylan on lap 6 and started closing in on the top two. Bill was still searching for a way around Steven for the top spot. Things started to heat up with 5 laps to go and $1,000 on the line. Bill gave Steven a love tap on his rear bumper but could still not make the pass. A lapped card loomed in front of the leaders with two laps to go. Bill made contact with Steven, with Bill taking the lead and Connor moving into second. Bill would get to the checkered flag first to claim the $1,000 prize.

Logan Wagner Gets Back on Track with First Win of 2023; Trent Brenneman and Kenny Heffner Win as Well

Port Royal Speedway – PORT ROYAL, Penn (July 16, 2023)- Logan Wagner rebounded from a tough string of bad luck to score his first win of the season in Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Car competition Saturday night.

The win, worth $5000, was Wagner’s 17th of his career at the Juniata County oval and moved him into a tie for 17th all-time on the win list at the Speedway with Elmer Ruby, Fred Rahmer and Randy Wolfe.

Garrett Bard and Steve Buckwalter lined up on the front row for the 25-lap event and it was Buckwalter getting the early jump to lead lap one. Wagner, who started fifth on the grid, made a two for one move to grab the final podium position on lap four.

Already a three-time winner in 2023, ninth-place starter Devon Borden moved to sixth on lap five and two laps later he cracked the top five.

Wagner continued his march forward as he grabbed second on lap nine, while Borden moved into the final podium position at the 15-to-go mark.

Mike Walter II started 13thin the field and was the car on the move as used the high line to take the eighth position on lap 11. Meanwhile up front, Buckwalter, Wagner and Borden were engaged in a three-car battle for the top spot amidst heavy lapped traffic.

It only took one lap for Wagner to stake his claim as the top man on the track as he ducked under Buckwalter in turn’s three and four to lead with 13 to go. Borden followed suit to claim the runner-up spot.

Walter continued putting on a show back in the field as he moved into seventh one lap later. Two laps later, with 10 laps to go, Wagner held a .844 advantage over Borden. Walter moved into sixth on the following lap.

The event’s only caution came two laps later when Trenton Sheaffer spun out at the end of the backstretch.

Borden tried a move to the bottom on the restart, but Wagner was too good off the top of the track. Walter would advance to fourth with one lap remaining, but nobody had anything for the leader as Wagner cruised home to victory by a margin of 2.284 seconds.

Borden, Jeff Halligan, Walter, and Gerard McIntyre Jr rounded out the top five. Lucas Wolfe, Blane Heimbach, Buckwalter, Ryan Smith and Bard completed the top ten. Walter was the $500 Valley Supply Hard Charger for the event, while Buckwalter earned the $1000 J&S Classics Warrior Award via random draw.

Trent Brenneman held off a hard charging Shawn Shoemaker to pick up his fifth career victory in the Dack’s Trucking LLC Limited Late Model division. The win was Brenneman’s first of the season and earned him $1500.

Danny Atherton and Shoemaker lined up on the front row for the feature, but it was Brenneman jumping out front early in the race. After seven laps, Brenneman held a 1.763 second advantage over Shoemaker, but a caution for a slowing Spike Moore wiped out the lead. Moore was running fourth at the time.

Brenneman controlled the restart, but Shoemaker stayed close to his tail. 13th starter Devin Hart was the man on the move as he cracked the top five with seven laps remaining. One lap later he moved into fourth and with five laps remaining he grabbed the final podium position.

While he tried to track down the leaders, neither him nor Shoemaker had anything for Brenneman as the local driver went on to claim the checkered flag.

Kenny Yoder and Jared Fulkroad completed the top five, while Andrew Yoder, Taylor Farlling, Atherton, Daulton Bigler and Ryan Zook completed the top ten.

The win was the third of Heffner’s career at the Juniata County oval. Zach Rhodes wrestled away the lead in a three-car battle between Heffner himself and Roger Irvine with nine laps to go and looked to be on his way to victory.

However, with Rhodes struggling slightly in lapped traffic, he opened the door for Heffner to re-take the lead on the white flag lap. Heffner got around Rhodes coming to the flag and held on for the victory.

Irvine, Owen Dimm and Seth Schnoke rounded out the top five. Austin Reed, Doug Dodson, Ken Duke, Logan Spahr and Kruz Kepner completed the top ten.

Abbottstown, PA (July 8, 2023) – Three weeks after scoring his first win at Lincoln of the season, Danny Dietrich was back in victory lane on Saturday night. Dietrich drove through the field from his tenth starting spot to take the lead on lap 11. Danny would have a commanding lead of nearly six seconds when the caution came out on lap 19. Dietrich’s win was his 63rd career victory at Lincoln, putting him only three races behind Brian Montieth on the all-time win list.

Tyler Esh and Glenndon Forsythe made up the front row for the drop of the green flag on Saturday night. Esh and Forsythe raced side by side through turns 1 and 2 with Esh getting the advantage down the back stretch to lead lap 1. Forsythe was running second with Brett Strickler in third. Billy Dietrich was searching for a way around Strickler for third when Danny Dietrich joined the fight for the spot. The yellow flag flew for the first time on lap 3 when Cameron Smith was sitting sideways in turn 4.

Esh, Forsythe, Strickler and brothers Billy and Danny Dietrich made up the top five for the restart. Forsythe got under Esh on the restart to challenge for the lead but the caution came out for Billy Dietrich who was stopped on the back stretch.

With Billy out of the running, Jordan Givler restarted fifth behind Esh, Forsythe, Strickler and Danny. Esh had a better restart this time and kept Forsythe at bay. Danny was up next to Strickler at the line and took third on lap 5. Danny made quick work of Forsythe and was up to second on lap 6, but the caution came out before the lap was scored. The yellow was for fluid on the front stretch.

Esh had another good restart, leaving Forsythe to fend off Danny. Stricker, Givler and Trey Hivner were in a three-car battle for fourth. Danny was second at the line on lap 8 and Givler had moved into fourth. Danny reeled in Esh and got under him in turns 1 and 2. Dietrich took the lead on lap 11 and started to pull away from the field. Troy Wagaman entered into the top five and Forsythe was working on Esh for second. Danny had a 4.7 second lead on lap 15 as he entered lapped traffic. Chase Dietz and Freddie Rahmer were in a fierce battle for sixth. The battle eventually caught up to Givler and became a battle for fifth.

Wagaman was up to second, Esh was running third and Dietz was fourth when the caution came out for Forsythe as he fell off the pace. The caution erased a 5.970 second lead for Dietrich.

Danny, Wagaman, Esh, Dietz and Rahmer made up the top five for the restart. Danny had a solid restart and Dietz went to the outside of Esh for third. Rahmer followed and it was nearly a three-wide battle for position down the front stretch. Dietz got under Wagaman for second but Troy held the spot by .001 seconds at the line. Wagaman, Dietz and Rahmer were under a blanket battling for second. Dietz had the spot with seven laps to go with Wagaman right behind him. Danny entered lapped traffic again with three laps to go with his lead back up to 4.1 seconds.

Danny got to the checkered flag 2.844 seconds ahead of Dietz. Wagaman crossed the line third and Freddie was fourth. Esh completed the top five.

Chase Gutshall Scores First Career 358 Sprint Win

Before the start of the feature, the B-main winner, Tyler Ulrich scratched, which meant the first alternate, Steven Downs would start the feature from the rear.

Chase Gutshall and Wyatt Hinkle started the 20-lap feature on the front row with Gutshall leading the field into turn 1. There was a yellow on the start when Brady Dillon stopped on the front stretch.

The field lined up for a complete restart. Kyle Spence got up to second on the start, but the yellow flag flew again before a lap was completed. This time Chad Criswell sat stopped in turn 4.

The third time was the charm as Gutshall once again took the lead as a three-wide battle between Scott Fisher, Kyle Spence and Hinkle waged. Spence had the spot as Fisher raced wheel-to-wheel with him.

Frankie Herr was defending fifth from Logan Rumsey and Doug Hammaker was up to seventh getting by Cody Fletcher at the line on lap 7. Hammaker was all over Rumsey for sixth and Herr caught Hinkle to challenge for fourth.

Gutshall was closing in on lapped traffic at the halfway point as Spence was reeling him in. Hammaker got by Rumsey for sixth and Herr took fourth from Hinkle. Spence was on Gutshall’s bumper as they raced through lapped traffic.

Gutshall scored his first career 358 sprint car feature win by .56 seconds over Spence. Fisher crossed the line third and Herr was fourth. Hammaker completed the top five.

Macri Wraps Up Speedweek Title with Keith Kauffman Classic Victory; Josh Weller Scores First Career Speedway Win with URC

Port Royal Speedway, PORT ROYAL, Pa – (July 4, 2023)- Anthony Macri capped off a dominating Pennsylvania Speedweek with his second career Valley Supply Keith Kauffman Classic victory over Logan Wagner and Mike Wagner.

The win, which came in front of a packed house on Independence Day, was worth $15,000 and helped Macri lock up his first career Speedweek title.

Five-time defending track champion Logan Wagner and his father, Mike Wagner, lined up on the front row for the 30-lap feature event and it was the younger Wagner jumping out to an early lead.

However, the start was null and void following contact with Jeff Halligan and TJ Stutts that sent Stutts flipping inside the backstretch jersey barriers on the opening lap. Stutts would walk away ok from the scene.

The younger Wagner again grabbed the top spot following a complete restart, but the wild night on track continued after three laps when Danny Dietrich got upside down in turn’s three and four in a single-car incident to again bring out the red flag. Dietrich, who was running eight =h at the time of the wreck, would also walk away unhurt.

Macri, who started fourth, lined up second for the restart, but Wagner proved to be fast as he raced out again to a lead. Fifth-place starter Brent Marks grabbed the fourth spot on the following lap and one lap later seventh-place starter Devon Borden cracked the top five.

Following a caution for Jason Shultz getting turned around in turn’s and two, Marks moved into a podium position on lap seven. Wagner continued to set the pace up front, but his momentum stalled as he hit the tail-end of the field on lap 12.

Wagner held off Macri’s advances over the next two laps, but Macri capitalized with a slide job in turn’s three and four to grab the top spot at the halfway point. Within five laps Macri had already built up a 2.8 second advantage and he was adding to it when the final red flag of the event flew with four laps remaining for a flipping Borden.

Wagner made one last effort on the restart to take the top spot back, but Macri wasn’t to be dnied as he cruised home with ease to his second win of the season at the Speedway. Marks and Justin Peck made up the rest of the top five, while Lance Dewease, Justin Whittall, Mike Walter II, Kyle Reinhardt, and Freddie Rahmer rounded out the top ten.

Peck earned the night’s $500 Valley Supply Hard Charger, while 13th-place finisher Dylan Norris earned the $1000 J&S Classics Warrior Award via random draw.

Macri, who was attempting to sweep the evening features, was battling for the runner-up spot just past the halfway mark when the two made contact and caused Macri to come to a slow. He was able to re-join the field.

Following the incident, Weller held off various drivers’ attempts to wrestle away the top spot. Macri was putting on a show as he came back through the field, but nobody had anything for Weller up front.

Cody Fletcher, Robbie Stillwaggon, Mike Thompson, Matthew Swift and Tyler Walton completed the top ten.

Marks Wins Another 19M/39M Speedweek Battle, Turns Back Macri For 20K Williams Grove Smith Memorial Win

6/30/23

Mechanicsburg – Brent Marks won another battle between he and Anthony Macri to claim the $20,000 Pennsylvania Speedweek 35th annual Mitch Smith Memorial for sprint cars at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night.

Both Marks and Macri have been battling each other all speedweek long with thrilling displays at the front of the field and Friday night at the Grove was no different.

In fact, the duo even started the 30-lap event presented by Pennsy Supply on the front row.

At the finish Marks would be scored as the leader of all 30 circuits for his second win of the 2023 series but Macri nearly stole the win with two laps to go.

The initial start of the prestigious race was called back when Justin Peck bicycled hard in the first turn before coming to a stop.

Marks then blasted into the lead when the first lap was scored with Macri in tow.

The leaders quickly entered the backmarkers on lap five thanks to the blistering speeds they were achieving on the tacky track.

But the pace slowed shortly after for a stopped Lucas Wolfe.

The remainder of the race would go non-stop with Marks again entering traffic on lap 13.

Tanner Thorson lost third to Chase Dietz with 13 laps to go but that would be as far as the York driver would advance.

As traffic got heavier and heavier during the final third of the event, Marks had to work harder and harder to get by each car and that allowed Macri to close the gap that he had allowed to develop between them.

By lap 25 Macri had run down the pacesetter and as the pair crossed the line with three laps to go, they were nose to tail.

That’s when Macri bolted to Marks’ inside in the first and second turns and briefly took control as Marks hooked the cushion to pull back even with his challenger.

A lapped car directly in front of Macri was enough to allow Marks to take advantage and roll back into control as the pair blasted onto the backchute.

Marks then raced to stay ahead of the lapped car to take the win by .426 seconds.

“We just set this thing up so when we got to traffic we could maneuver out around them,” Marks said of his No. 19M.

“I just had to pick my moves wisely.”

Macri was second followed by Dietz, Thorson and Dylan Norris.

Sixth through 10th went to Kyle Reinhardt, TJ Stutts, Lance Dewease, Devon Borden and Dylan Cisney.

The victory was the second of the season at the track for Marks and his second in a row in the Mitch Smith Memorial.

Marks has now won two of the ovals most prestigious races two years running after scoring the Tommy Hinnershitz classic in 2022 and in 2023 as well as the Mitch Smith Memorial both years.

The overall start of the racing event was delayed nearly two hours thanks to a late afternoon deluge.

Heats went to Marks, Thorson and Billy Dietrich with Troy Wagaman Jr. taking the B Main.

Fast time was set by Macri with a lap of 16.665 seconds.

Feature Finish:

410 sprints, 30 laps: 1. Brent Marks, 2. Anthony Macri, 3. Chase Dietz, 4. Tanner Thorson, 5. Dylan Norris, 6. Kyle Reinhardt, 7. TJ Stutts, 8. Lance Dewease, 9. Devon Borden, 10. Dylan Cisney, 11. Mike Wagner, 12. Justin Peck, 13. Billy Dietrich, 14. Justin Whittall, 15. Kyle Moody, 16. Cameron Smith, 17. Freddie Rahmer, 18. Troy Wagaman, 19. Skylar Gee, 20. Ryan Taylor, 21. Tyler Reeser, 22. Danny Dietrich, 23. Lucas Wolfe, 24. Steve Buckwalter

Abbottstown, PA (June 29, 2023) – Going into Thursday night, Freddie Rahmer was still missing a Lincoln Speedway Speedweek win on his resume. Rahmer had scored Speedweek wins at Hagerstown and Williams Grove in 2019 and 2017 respectively. Rahmer wired the field for 30 laps and can now add Lincoln as his third career Speedweek win. The win was his seventh of the season at the 3/8-mile oval and his ninth overall, allowing him to reclaim the sole title of winningest 410 driver in the country.

Rahmer started the night setting quick time over the 34-car field and made the redraw with a third place finish in his heat. Rahmer drew the pole for the feature, “I really didn’t want to start on the pole,” Freddie shared in victory lane. Rahmer had worked through lapped traffic and had a decent lead over the rest of the field, “We were getting through lapped traffic on and off ok and then I got held up a little bit.” The first caution of the race came with three laps to go, forcing Rahmer to forfeit his 3 second lead. Freddie had Brent Marks and Anthony Macri lined up behind him for the restart. Another restart with two laps to go had Rahmer holding off Marks and Macri yet again for a green, white, checkered finish. Rahmer held off both Marks and Macri as they battled for second, “We’ve been fast all year. Really proud to win this one.”

Pole-sitter Freddie Rahmer took the lead when the green flag dropped with Tanner Thorson right there to challenge for the top spot. Rahmer had a solid lead over Thorson coming out of turn 2 as Thorson was holding off TJ Stutts down the back stretch.

Chad Trout, Brent Marks and Anthony Macri raced three-wide out of turn 4 for fourth with Marks taking the spot and Macri moving into fifth. Trout would pull off with engine trouble, ending his run. Marks and Macri continued to battle for fourth with Macri taking the spot on lap 10. Rahmer entered lapped traffic on lap 10 and Thorson started closing in on the leader as they worked around lapped cars.

Macri got by Stutts for third on lap 13. Justin Peck got under Marks for fifth but Marks took it back after the two bumped wheels. Peck was not going away. Chase Dietz was in seventh watching the battle between Peck and Marks unfold in front of him. Dietz made a move and got under Peck down the back stretch for sixth but Peck battled back to keep the spot at the line on lap 17.

Macri was closing in on Thorson for second and got a good run into turn 3. Thorson held the spot but Marks entered the picture and took third from Macri on lap 24. Marks got under Thorson for second down the back stretch on lap 27 before the caution came out. Thorson sat in turn 4 with a flat tire.

Rahmer led Marks, Macri, Peck and Dietz for the restart. Rahmer and Marks went low into turn 1 with Macri opting for the top. Macri was on Marks’ bumper for second at the line when the yellow flag came out again on lap 28. Danny Dietrich, who had been running seventh, was sitting backwards in turn 2.

The top five for the green, white, checkered finish were Rahmer, Marks, Macri, Peck and Dietz. Rahmer went low again with Marks choosing the high line through turns 1 and 2. Macri was all over Marks for second again and took the spot at the finish line by a nose.

Rahmer took the checkered flag 1.141 seconds ahead of Marci. Macri took second from Marks at the line by .053 seconds. Peck held on to fourth and Stutts took fifth.

This Saturday, July 1, Lincoln Speedway is back in action with Central PA Legends, 600 Xcel modifieds, 600 micro sprints and Limited Stocks. Racing starts at 6PM with pit gates opening at 3:30PM and grandstand gates opening at 4PM.

Williams Grove Honors Career, Impact & Legacy Of Mitch Smith Friday

35th annual running of Mitch Smith Memorial on tap

6/25/23

Mechanicsburg – When Williams Grove Speedway gets down to action on Friday night, it will do so for the 35th year in a row in honor of a famed sprint car great, the late Mitch Smith of Linglestown.

The oval will host the Pennsy Supply 35th annual Mitch Smith Memorial as part of Pennsylvania Speedweek on June 30 at 7:30 pm.

And the race to honor Smith will pay a lucrative $20,000 to win, an increase of $5,000 over last year, out of the largest total speedweek purse to be posted in all 2023 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 35th annual Mitch Smith Memorial on Friday night.

Brent Marks is the defending winner of the prestigious Mitch Smith Memorial.

The Myerstown driver wired the field to claim the 2022 event.

Lance Dewease is the winningest driver in Smith Memorial history, having scored wins in 1992, 1995, 1997, 2001, 2018 and in 2021.

Fred Rahmer has four Smith Memorials to his credit along with the late Greg Hodnett.

Stevie Smith won the inaugural event in 1989.

35th Annual Mitch Smith Memorial Is Friday At Williams Grove

Speedweek Crown Jewel Boasts Largest Total Purse And Largest Winner’s Share Again In 2023

Total Event Worth Nearly 50K

6/25/23
 

Mechanicsburg - Williams Grove Speedway will again present the biggest race of the Pennsylvania Speedweek Series this Friday night, June 30 at 7:30 pm when it hosts the Pennsy Supply 35th 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 $20,000 to win out of a total purse worth nearly $50,000.

The Pennsy Supply 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 2023 Hoosier Diamond Series at the track.

The special speedweek event will be a stand-alone sprint car program, highlighting 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 $30 with youth ages 13 – 20 admitted for $15. Kids ages 12 and under are always admitted for FREE at Williams Grove Speedway.

Pennsy Supply is a manufacturer of aggregate, asphalt, sand and concrete products while also providing construction services.

With locations across North and Central Pennsylvania and Delaware, the 100-plus year old business is headquartered in Harrisburg and is located on the web at www.pennsysupply.com.

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 race than six-time event champion Lance Dewease.

Brent Marks is the defending race champion.

Among others, previous winners have included Joey Allen, Alan Krimes, Daryn Pittman, Trey Starks, Don Kreitz Jr. Fred Rahmer, Greg Hodnett and Danny Dietrich.

Abbottstown, PA

ANTHONY MACRI WINS A THRILLER TO KICK-OFF PA SPEEDWEEK; Bob Scott Jr. Scores First Lincoln Win

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Monday, June 26, 2023 (7:30PM) PA SPEEDWEEK: 410 Sprints ($8,000 to win)

Saturday, July 1, 2023 (6PM) CROWNSTONE EQUIPMENT NIGHT presented by GENE LATTA FORD: Central PA Legends, 600 Xcel Modifieds, 600 Wingless Micros plus Limited Stocks

Saturday, July 8, 2023 (7PM) HANOVER BUILDING SYSTEMS NIGHT: 410 Sprints and 358 Sprints plus KIDS NIGHTS with Big Wheel Races

Abbottstown, PA (June 24, 2023) – “They say its better to chase than to lead,” that statement came from Anthony Macri who chased Danny Dietrich for the first 26 laps of the 30 lap feature on Saturday night before scoring the first win of 2023 PA Speedweek and claiming the $10,092 to win Kevin Gobrecht Memorial. The final five laps of the feature were epic as Macri, Dietrich and Brent Marks all vied for the win as they worked around lapped cars. Macri gave a recap from his point of view of the wild finish, “Where Danny went I went to the opposite lane. I saw the chance to make a move in 1 and 2 and I slid Danny and the next thing I knew I saw the 19.” The three swapped spots with sliders galore, “It makes you get up in the seat a bit when you’re racing these two. You know they’re going to race you hard but they’re going to race you clean.”

Lincoln has honored the late Kevin Gobrecht for 24 years with the Kevin Gobrecht Memorial. Macri’s career started well after Kevin’s passing, but his legacy continues on with the annual race, “I don’t know much about Kevin other than he was a badass wheel man. Anyone you talk to has absolutely nothing but great things to say about him as a driver and a person. To be able to win a race in his name is pretty special for anyone and its special to me.”

Lucas Wolfe drew the pole for Saturday night’s feature and Danny Dietrich lined up to his outside. The two raced wheel to wheel at the flag stand, through turns 1 and 2 and down the back stretch. Danny eventually got the advantage over Wolfe as they raced out of turn 4.

Anthony Macri was closing in on Wolfe for second and took it by a nose on lap 3. Chad Trout followed sending Wolfe back to fourth. Brent Marks was also moving up through the field and got by Wolfe for fourth in turn 1. Trout showed his nose under Macri in turns 3 and 4 but did not make the pass. Marks got by Trout in turn 2 but Trout tried to reclaim the spot down the back stretch. Marks held and took third on lap 9.

As Dietrich entered lapped traffic on lap 9, he had cars racing three-wide in front of him. Trout was still hot on Marks’ tail tank trying to reclaim third. Trout took the spot back on lap 12, but Marks battled back and reclaimed the spot on the next lap.

Justin Peck entered the picture as he made a bid for third. Marks, Trout, Peck and Wolfe were all battling for position with lapped traffic in play.

Macri was closing in on Danny and Peck took fourth from Trout by inches at the line on lap 17.

Lapped traffic was racing three-wide again in front of Danny and this time Macri was right there to challenge for the lead. Marks was also closing in on the leaders as he worked his way around lapped cars.

Macri got under Dietrich but Danny moved down to block his line forcing Macri to move up the track. Macri got under Danny again this time taking the lead, but Dietrich took it back as they entered turn 3, holding on to the top spot. The next lap Marks tried to slide both Macri and Dietrich in turns 3 and 4 which resulted in Macri taking the lead.

Danny went low and reclaimed the lead coming out of turn 2 but Macri held on by inches at the line with two laps to go.

Dietrich was all over Macri on the last lap with Marks right there in play too.

Macri won the epic battle by .916 over Marks who managed to slip by Dietrich on the final lap. Danny was third and Peck crossed the line fourth. Freddie Rahmer worked his way up through the field to finish fifth.

Bob Scott Jr. Scores First Lincoln Win

Jason Townsend and Jake Jones made up the front row for the start of the 20-lap feature on Saturday night. Jones took the lead and had Alex Updegraff in tow with Alex taking the lead from his fourth starting spot. Jones was in second with Blake Decker in third. Decker got by Jones for second leaving Jones to fend off a challenge from Sammy Rial for third.

Rial, Bob Scott Jr. and Jones went three-wide for third with Rial taking the spot. Scott and Rial were wheel to wheel at the line on lap 4 for the spot. Scott kept moving forward and was up to second on lap five after starting eighth. Scott took the lead from Updegraff on lap 7. Rial followed and took second at the line.

The first caution of the race came on lap 7 as Hunter Fulton slowed on the track.

Scott led Rial, Decker, Jones and McClane on the restart. Rial looked to the bottom on the restart but Scott held the lead as he raced through the middle of the turns. McClane up next to Jones for fourth when the caution came out for Tyler Knaub and Will Long who both got spun out in turn 2 on lap 6.

The top five for the restart were Scott, Rial, Decker, McClane and Jones. Scott continued to lead. Mike Goodwin had started 18th and was up to sixth on lap 11. Goodwin was working on Jones for a spot in the top five when Bryan Hare was facing the wrong way bringing out the caution on lap 12.

Scott, Rial, Decker, McClane and Jones made up the top five for the restart. Rial was all over Scott on the restart. Decker nearly got out of shape in turn 2 allowing Jones to get by him for third. Scott Sipe was up to fifth as McClane was starting to feel the effects of a flat tire. The caution came out on lap 14 for McClane who had succumbed to his tire issue.

Scott, Rial, Jones, Decker and Sipe were the top five for the restart. Sipe was up next to Decker and took fourth at the line by inches. The two continued to race wheel to wheel for the position.

Goodwin got under Decker for fifth and nearly had Sipe with three to go. Goodwin was up to third with two laps to go. Sipe was there to challenge Goodwin but could not make the late race pass.

Scott scored his first career Lincoln Speedway win 1.501 seconds over Rial. Goodwin charged through the field for a third place finish. Hunter Fulton crossed the line fourth and Sipe held on to finish fifth.

This Monday, June 26, Lincoln Speedway is back in action with PA Speedweek for the 410 sprints. Racing starts at 7:30PM with pit gates opening at 5PM and grandstand gates opening at 5:30PM.

DANNY DIETRICH BACK IN VICTORY LANE WITH SPEEDWEEK TUNE-UP WIN; Tyler Emory Declared Appalachian Mountain Speedweek Winner

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Saturday, June 24, 2023 (7PM) PA SPEEDWEEK: 24th Annual Kevin Gobrecht Memorial presented by Whitson Mechanical, LLC paying $10,092 to win plus Extreme Stocks

Monday, June 26, 2023 (7PM) PA SPEEDWEEK: 410 Sprints ($8,000 to win)

Saturday, July 1, 2023 (6PM) CROWNSTONE EQUIPMENT NIGHT presented by GENE LATTA FORD: Central PA Legends, 600 Xcel Modifieds, 600 Wingless Micros plus Limited Stocks

Abbottstown, PA (June 17, 2023) – Danny Dietrich’s first win of the season at Lincoln came on Saturday night during the PA Speedweek Tune-up. The last time Dietrich waited until June to score his first win of the season at Lincoln was 2009.

Dietrich drew the six pill in the redraw, the highest pill available, for his feature start. That didn’t stop him though, Danny was up to third on the second lap, and was second on lap three. Dietrich took the lead from Tyler Ross on lap five. Danny would go unchallenged until a late race restart, “I about lost it there on the restart. The left rear felt low once we went back green. I had to be really conservative. I went into turn 1 and just about spun out.” Ross, who was running second, was able to pull a slider on Dietrich in turn 2 to briefly take the lead back, “Tyler got by me and slid me. Had to get conservative and aggressive. I felt like I ran a really good race there and raced smart with Tyler to make sure I didn’t do anything stupid.”

It was an emotional win for Dietrich who lost his father in-law this week, “This race is for Mike. It’s been a tough week but this is a great way to cap this week off.”

Young-gun Cameron Smith drew the pole for the 30-lap feature and Tyler Ross, back in his family car for the second week in a row, lined up second. Smith had the lead at the line but Ross took the lead coming out of turn 2 and led lap 1. Smith, Kyle Moody and Danny Dietrich were racing three-wide coming out of turn 4 for second with Moody taking the spot. Danny was all over Smith for third and took the spot on lap 2 before the caution came out. Glenndon Forsythe and Cole Young got together in turn 3. Both were able to rejoin the field.

Ross led Moody, Danny, Smith and Domenic Melair for the restart. A seven car incident brought out the red on the restart. Both Freddie Rahmer and Matt Campbell took a spill. Riley Emig, Brandon Rahmer, Chad Trout, Chris Arnold and Jordan Givler were also involved.

Danny looked to the inside of Moody on the restart and got by him for second at the line by inches. Troy Wagaman passed Melair to get into the top five.

Danny was all over Ross for the lead and got a good run coming off or turn 2 on lap 4. It was good enough to get by Ross and Danny took the lead on lap 5. Troy got by Smith for fourth and started reeling in Moody.

Lapped traffic came into play for Danny on lap 8. Dietrich had a half straight-away lead, but heavy lapped traffic loomed ahead. Using the high line, Danny made quick work of lapped cars, maintaining his advantage over Ross.

Moody used lapped traffic to close in on Tyler as Danny checked out at the front of the field.

Melair brought out the yellow flag on lap 16 when he stopped coming out of turn 2. Domenic had been running seventh.

The top five for the restart were Danny, Ross, Moody, Wagaman and Smith. Moody went to the bottom on the restart but could not get by Ross for second. Ross closed in on Danny and pulled a slider to pass him for the lead in turn 2 on lap 18. Danny got him back before they crossed the line to hold on to the top spot.

Moody was there and ready to strike but Ross moved down to block Moody’s line in turns 1 and 2. Billy Dietrich entered the top five on lap 18.

Billy got by Troy for fourth on the back stretch on the final lap but Troy passed him back before the checkered to hold the spot.

Danny scored the win 1.740 seconds ahead of Ross. Moody crossed the line third and Wagaman was fourth. Billy completed the top five.

Tyler Emory Declared Appalachian Mountain Speedweek Winner

After victory lane festivities were completed Cody Overton’s car was disqualified for not meeting the Appalachian Mountain Speedweek rear suspension rules. That meant that Tyler Emory was the winner of the 35-lap, $4,000 to win feature.

Rick Eckert and Tyler Emory made up the front row and raced wheel to wheel the entire first lap until Emory had the advantage coming out of turn 4. Emory led lap 1 with Eckert in second. Eckert, Chad Overton and Gregg Satterlee were in a three-car battle for second. Overton got under Eckert down the back stretch and took second on lap 2. Eckert was left to hold off Satterlee’s challenge for third.

Overton was closing in on Emory as they caught the tail end of the field. Just as Emory found himself in lapped traffic, the yellow came out on lap 10 when Shaun Jones came to a stop in turn 2 after doing a 360 degree spin.

Emory led Overton, Eckert, Satterlee and Dylan Yoder to the cone for the restart. Satterlee was all over Eckert for third but could not make the pass. Overton was making a strong bid for the lead, but Emory held the spot.

Yoder showed his nose under Satterlee for fourth but did not make the pass. Overton was not letting Emory pull away. Chad tried the high line in turns 3 and 4 which resulted in losing ground to the leader. Overton regained the lost time as they caught the tail end of the field lap 20. Overton was on Emory’s bumper as they tried to get around the first lapped car. Overton got under Emory down the back stretch and took the lead on lap 22. Eckert had caught the front of the field as well and made it a three-car battle for the lead. Overton put a lapped car between him and the other contenders, Emory, Eckert, Satterlee and Yoder.

Yoder got by Satterlee for fourth but Satterlee stuck around and the two were in a fierce battle in the final laps. Jason Covert entered the picture late in the race and got by Satterlee for fifth on the final lap.

After Overton’s disqualification, Emory won with Eckert in second. Yoder was third and Covert was fourth. Satterlee completed the top five.

Next Saturday, June 24, Lincoln Speedway is back in action with PA Speedweek for the 410 sprints with the 24th Annual Kevin Gobrecht Memorial presented by Whitson Mechanical, LLC. The Extreme Stocks will also be in action. Racing starts at 7PM with pit gates opening at 4:30PM and grandstand gates opening at 5PM.

WAGAMAN JR. SCORES FIRST WILLIAMS GROVE SPRINT WIN IN FIRST

GROVE START FOR HEFFNER, EMERSON AXSOM WINS USAC FEATURE

6/16/23

MECHANICSBURG, PA – Troy Wagaman Jr.’s first Williams Grove start in

Mike Heffner’s No. 27 resulted in his first trip to victory lane

following the sprint car feature Friday night. He earned $5,500 for the win.

“This thing is a dream to drive,” he said. “I tried to do the best I

could for these guys. I thought I was setting a decent pace. I didn’t

want to get to the lapped cars at the wrong time. I’m in shock right

now. I can’t believe they called me because I wasn’t doing that well.”

Billy Dietrich led the opening lap over Wagaman Jr. and Austin Bishop before a caution slowed the race with three laps completed.

T.J. Stutts passed Bishop and then challenged Wagaman Jr. following

the restart. Dietrich, meanwhile, opened up a comfortable lead.

Dietrich’s great run came to an end with 10 laps completed as he

jumped the cushion and hit the fourth turn fence bringing out the

yellow.

This handed the lead to Wagaman Jr. for the restart with Stutts

second. Stutts raced inside of the leader when action resumed, but Wagaman Jr. held the

spot.

Stutts continued to challenge Wagaman for a few laps before he pulled

away while nineth starter Freddie Rahmer raced into fifth spot.

Heavy traffic was in front of the leaders with five laps to go but Wagaman was nice and smooth through traffic and pulled away from

Stutts over the final laps to score his first career Grove win in his

first start at the track in the Mike Heffner No. 27.

Stutts, Rahmer, Steve Buckwalter and Austin Bishop completed the top five. Danny Dietrich, Devon

Borden, Kyle Moody, Cameron Smith and Justin Whittall rounded out the top 10.

Heat races were won by Dietrich, Bishop and Wagaman Jr.

Presented by Kurt Smith Motorsports, The 30-lap USAC Eastern Storm main event saw Timmy Buckwalter grab the lead to start

over Emerson Axsom and Briggs Danner.

Axsom challenged Buckwalter for the lead for several laps as Alex

Bright challenged Danner for third with Justin Grant in fifth spot

early on.

The red flag flew with seven laps completed when Brady Bacon and Robert

Ballou were involved in a second turn crash.

Bright’s fuel cell was damaged in the wreck and his car was leaking fuel and a small

fire erupted. There were no injuries.

Grant and Thomas Meseraull passed Danner following the restart.

Axsom stayed right with Buckwalter before he’d grab the lead off the fourth

corner with 17 laps completed. Daison Pursley, who started 14th, was

up to third after passing Meseraull and Grant.

Pursley and Buckwalter traded the second spot in turns three and four as Axsom built a 1.5

second lead. Pursley finally made the pass stick with four laps to go.

Pursley got to Axsom next as they raced into turn three on the final

lap, but Axsom, of Franklin, Ind., held on for his first career Grove

win and second straight in Eastern Storm action. The top two are recent high

school graduates.

Buckwalter, Grant and Meseraull completed the top five.

Danner, Mitchel Moles, C.J. Leary, Jake Swanson and Kyle Moody rounded out the

top 10.

“It’s pretty cool to win here,” Axsom said. “I was able to run the top

and carry momentum.”

A total of 31 USAC National Sprint Cars were on hand for the annual

Eastern Storm event. Meseraull set a track record in qualifying time trials

with a lap of 19.016. The previous record was 19.509 set by Kevin

Thomas Jr on June 15, 2018.

The USAC heat races were won by C.J. Leary, Brady Bacon, Robert Ballou

and Mario Clouser. Mitchel Moles won the semi-feature.

Anton Hernandez flipped over the first turn fence while he was lining

up for the third heat race. He was uninjured.

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

JAKE SWANSON WINS FIRST THUNDER EVENT IN THE USAC NON-WING SPRINT CARS; STRUNK WINS MODIFIED FEATURE NUMBER SEVENTEEN AT GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY

BECHTELSVILLE, PA (June 13, 2023) – The NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series kicked off the Amsoil National-touring USAC Non-Wing Sprint Car Series Eastern Storm on Tuesday night at Grandview Speedway in a spectacular double-header with the 358 Modifieds presented by Pioneer Pole Buildings. The 40-lap USAC Jesse Hockett Classic was won by Jake Swanson collecting a $6,000 payday for his first Thunder on the Hill win, while the 358 Modified main event was won by Jeff Strunk claiming his 17th Thunder Series victory in the special event series. Strunk, driving the Glenn and Bonita Hyneman #126 earned $3,000 for his win in the 30 lap main event. A total purse in excess of $45,000 was distributed with thirty-one USAC Sprints and thirty-two 358 Modifieds taking part in the big evening of racing. A well prepared racing surface delivered a great night action for both divisions.

Anaheim, California’s Jake Swanson kicked off the Eastern Storm at the top of the podium, picking up his first-ever win in the east coast swing of the series that started in 2007.

“I don’t even know what to say, I’m so pumped,” an excited Swanson said during Victory Lane ceremonies. “This has been a long time coming and we’ve worked really hard for this.”

Swanson dominated the early portion of the event taking control on the opening circuit with Thomas Meseraull close on his rear bumper. The caution flag flew for the first time on lap 18 for Oklahoma’s Brady Bacon – who raced up to the 9th position after qualifying in the semi-feature event.

On the restart, a 3-wide battle for the fourth position moved Emerson Axsom passed local favorite, Briggs Danner. Axsom would battle past Stockon into third, and then onto second-place with ten laps remaining.

The action stopped on lap 30 when Briggs Danner spun in turn two, collecting Matt Westfall who flipped bringing out the red flag.

Axsom challenged Swanson when the green flag flew again, riding around the inside of the race track, while Swanson rode almost against the outside wall of the famed one-third mile Bechtelsville, Pennsylvania oval.

The two pulled side-by-side with five laps remaining, but Jake Swanson would hold on to win the $6,000 Jesse Hockett Classic main event, Axsom settled for second position, Robert Ballou came home in third, Timmy Buckwalter in fourth, and Kyle Cummins rounded out the top five finishers.

Cummins, from Princeton, IN, started the evening with the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car Series Quick Time presented by Clever Girl Winery racing a lap of 13.662. Heat races were won by Steven Drevicki, Mitchel Moles, Robert Ballou, and Emerson Axsom. The semi-feature was won by CJ Leary.

In the NASCAR 358 Modified event, Jeff Strunk went on to be the winner, but not without a few scary moments, a battle to take the lead, and, in the closing laps, he had to hold off a challenging Doug Manmiller.

Eddie Strada led the early portion of the event maintaining the top spot after a slew of early race accidents, the most heartbreaking coming on the 4th circuit when Justin Grim took the lead before making contact with an infield tire. Both Strada and Grim were in the hunt for that $2,000 Pioneer Pole Building Bonus for any first time 358 Modified Thunder feature winner.

With Strada leading, Strunk and Doug Manmiller battled for the second position maintaining a rapid pace during the bulk of the 30-lap 358 Modified main event. While running the inside lane while approaching lapped traffic, Strunk made his move outside Strada taking over the lead. Manmiller followed into the second position and Mike Gular moved into third.

The caution flag flew two more times in the late stages of the event, but Strunk was able to keep Manmiller and Gular behind him. The three would finish in that order respectively, Danny Bouc finished in the fourth position and Brett Kressley finished in fifth.

GT Radiator Repair NASCAR 358 Modified Heats were won by Alex Yankowski, Doug Manmiller, and Jordan Watson earning a $100 bonus – Kyle Smith won the last-chance qualifier scoring $100 for his efforts.

The NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series returns on Tuesday, June 27 for Pennsylvania 410 Sprint Car Speedweek presented by HVAC Distributors for the $10,000-to-win Greg Hodnett Cup. The 358 Modifieds are also on the schedule for this always popular mid-week doubleheader.

Justin Peck Looking Forward to PA Sprint SpeedWeek; A Look Back at Recent SpeedWeek History

Mechanicsburg, PA (June 12, 2023) – Sixteen days after taking a nasty ride at Bridgeport Speedway, Justin Peck was back behind the wheel at Lincoln Speedway. Peck will pick-up Ohio SpeedWeek on Tuesday and then return to Pennsylvania with plans to run the entire PA Sprint SpeedWeek. Last year, Peck finished second in the final SpeedWeek point standings, “I feel like we put in a good week last year but Brent won five races. It’s tough to beat a guy that wins half the shows and it seems like he ran second in the other half.”

Since teaming up with Buch Motorsports Peck has been a staple at PA Sprint SpeedWeek and scored his first and only SpeedWeek victory in 2021 at Lincoln, “This will be my third consecutive PA SpeedWeek with the same guys. I feel like we’ve been pretty good all three years, we won a race the first year, we did not win a race last year, but we had a couple of podiums and a couple of top fives ended up second in the points.” The night Peck won at Lincoln, both Kyle Larson and Christopher Bell were in the field.

Peck and the Buch Team are no strangers to Pennsylvania, “I’m feeling pretty confident. I love Pennsylvania and my guys are from PA and we’re based here so we have a lot of good support. This is something I look forward to.” Peck will look to capture the $6,000 bonus as the high point man for the ten race series. This year's $30,000 point fund is sponsored by C&D Rigging, Grantville, PA. C&D Rigging is the leader in millwrighting and mechanical erection of machinery and heavy equipment since 2013. This will be the largest total point fund ever offered for the Speed Week series with a point fund bonus posted for fifteen positions in final points.

Michael Norris wins in Appalachian Mountain Speedweek return to Port Royal

Michael Norris became the first multi-time winner in Super Late Model competition during the 2023 racing season as he bested Tyler Emory, Kyle Lee, Rick Eckert, and Jeff Rine during night two of Appalachian Mountain Speedweek Saturday night.

The win was worth $5000 and was Norris’s third career triumph at the Juniata County oval.

With 50 Super Late Models on hand for the return of the Late Model Speedweek event, Norris and Eckert lined up on the front row for the 28-car event. Norris jumped out to the early lead, with Emory, Eckert, Lee and Rine filling out the top five.

Colton Flinner was on the move early as he advanced from 10th to seventh by lap five, while Norris was setting sail up front and approached the tail-end of the field three laps later.

Norris continued to move in and out of lapped traffic with ease over the next nine laps, while Lee moved into a podium position on lap 17. Two laps later he made a move for second. Norris opened a 5.799 second advantage with 11 laps to go, however the caution flew for debris to wipe out the lead.

Emory capitalized on the restart to move back into the runner-up position and over the final 11 laps he was able to cut into the leader’s distance. However, Norris was not to be denied as he cruised home to the win and the paycheck in front of the Juniata faithful.

Dan Stone, Kyle Hardy, Drake Troutman, Flinner and Gregg Satterlee rounded out the top ten.

Jeff Halligan rebounded from an accident last weekend to pick up the $5000 Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Car feature win over Lucas Wolfe, Dylan Cisney, Mike Wagner, and Ryan Smith.

Mike Walter II and Austin Bishop started on the front row for the 25-lap A-main and it was Walter leading the opening circuit over Wolfe, Bishop, Halligan, and TJ Stutts.

Wolfe moved to the front of the pack on the following lap, while Halligan took over the second position one lap later. Cisney, who started seventh, cracked the top five on lap four and one lap later he moved into fourth.

It only took until lap six for Halligan to overtake Wolfe for the top spot as he used a move in turn’s three and four to make the move. Within four laps he opened an advantage of 2.13 seconds and was heavy on the tail end of the field.

Cisney cracked the podium on lap 10, while ninth-place starter and last weekend’s winner Devon Borden moved into fifth three laps later. Cisney, Walter and Borden jockeyed for positions for positions three through five over the next handful of laps.

Meanwhile it was smooth sailing up front for Halligan, as he opened a 5.345 second advantage by lap 19. Though it was wiped out completely when Justin Whittall brought out the caution in turn three to set up a 6-lap dash for the win.

Halligan took away the bottom on the restart, so Wolfe tried a move through the middle in turns one and two. However, Halligan was just too good as he raced to the checkered flag by a margin of 3.905 seconds for the win.

Walter, Borden, Blane Heimbach, Bishop, and Gerard McIntyre Jr completed the top ten. McIntyre earned the $500 Valley Supply Hard Charger Award after starting 19th, while 16th-place finisher Kody Lehman scored the random draw J & S Classics $1000 Warrior Award.

Danny Atherton capitalized on a front-row starting spot to score his first career Dack’s Trucking Limited Late Model feature event over a hard charging Ryan Zook. Shawn Shoemaker, Devin Hart, and Eric Irvin completed the top five.

Jaxton Garman started on the pole, and he led the first five laps of the event before giving way to Atherton. Two laps later Zook, who started third, moved into the runner-up spot and set his sights on the leader.

Trent Brenneman brought out the event’s only caution while running fifth a few laps later. Hart capitalized off the restart to move into third with 12 laps remaining, while Zook was all over the tail end of Atherton’s car.

He threw everything but the kitchen sink at Atherton over the final laps, but Atherton was able to narrowly hold on for the victory. Kenny Yoder, Garman, Taylor Farling, Matt Parks, and Casey Steinhoff rounded out the top ten. Farling earned the $150 River Valley Builders Hard Charger Award.

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Monday, June 26, 2023 (7PM) PA SPEEDWEEK: 410 Sprints ($8,000 to win)

Abbottstown, PA (June 10, 2023) – Freddie Rahmer parked the Eichelberger #8 in victory lane at Lincoln Speedway for the third week in a row on Saturday night. It was Rahmer’s six win at the track this year and his eighth win overall, making him the winningest 410 driver in the country, “Really glad to win again. This is a great race for the [Hawkins] family. I appreciate everything they did for it.” Saturday was the second annual Elijah Hawkins Memorial, Freddie won the first iteration of the race last year as well.

Rahmer lined up fourth for the 35-lap feature and took the lead from Troy Wagaman on lap 3. Rahmer had a decent lead when the caution came out on lap 18. The yellow turned to red when fence repairs were needed in turn 2, “We were really good at the beginning and ok after the red.”

As the lap counter ticked down, Wagaman was closing in on Rahmer, “I figured it was coming. The bottom would clean off and get some rubber.” There weren’t enough laps for Wagaman to make a move for the lead and Rahmer took home the $7,000 check.

Chase Dietz and Troy Wagaman started on the front row of the 35-lap, $7,000 to win feature. Dietz had the lead into turn 1 with Wagaman right behind him.

Wagaman stuck his nose under Dietz as they came to the stand on lap 1 but Dietz held the top spot. Freddie Rahmer took second coming out of turn 4 on lap 2 and was up to the lead on lap 3.

With Rahmer at the front of the field Wagaman and Dietz battled for second. Wagaman got by Dietz for second on lap 10. Justin Peck, who returned to the track after a bad wreck that resulted in a concussion last month, was up to fifth. Brandon Rahmer was running fourth and closing in on Dietz.

Dietz, Brandon and Peck battled in close quarters for third in lapped traffic. The yellow came out on lap 18 after Peck made contact with the lapped car of Zane Rudisill. Rudisill sat stopped at the exit of turn 2 and Peck was able to keep going. The yellow turned into an open red as repairs were needed to the fence in turn 2 before racing could resume.

Freddie led Troy, Dietz, Brandon and Peck for the restart. Peck went to the outside of Brandon for fourth and got it at the line using the high line. Brandon threw a slider to reclaim the spot in turns 1 and 2 but Peck kept fourth. Peck then went to work on Dietz for third.

Dietz and Peck were in a fierce battle, swapping the spot back and forth with Peck using the top and Dietz on the bottom. Peck slid in front of Dietz as they raced into turn 1 and took third on lap 27. While Dietz and Peck continued their fierce battle for third, Troy was slowly reeling in Freddie as they once again caught the tail end of the field. Dietz got third back on lap 31.

Freddie was forced high as they worked through lapped traffic, which allowed Wagaman to close in even more. Wagaman went high to try and make a run for the lead, but the top had gone away.

Freddie scored the win with Wagaman crossing the line second in his debut in the Heffner #27. Dietz held off Peck for third, and Peck settled for fourth. Brandon Rahmer finished fifth.

Kyle Spence Adds Name to Lincoln Record Books With First 358 Sprint Car Win

Kyle Keen and Kyle Spence made up the front row of Saturday night’s 358 sprint car feature. Spence took the lead at the flag stand with Keen in second. Tyler Ulrich and Justin Foster both wanted second from Keen.

Cody Fletcher got by Foster for fourth as Ulrich was still searching for a way by Keen to take second. Fletcher entered the battle and took third from Ulrich.

Logan Rumsey got by Foster to get into the top five. Spence had a 3.2 second lead over Keen when he caught the tail end of the field on lap 11. Heavy lapped traffic for Spence allowed Keen to cut down the lead to 2.7 seconds on lap 12. Keen had Spence’s lead down to 1.5 seconds with five laps to go.

Ulrich got back by Fletcher for third late in the race. Spence worked his way through the heavy lapped traffic and was able to put some more distance between Keen

Once Spence got into lapped traffic he started to pull away from Keen again and had the lead back over 2 seconds with one lap to go.

Spence won the non-stop feature, his first in the division, and took home $1,500. Keen finished second and Ulrich crossed the line third. Rumsey was fourth and Fletcher completed the top five.

Steve Owings Wins June 3 Make-up Feature

Scott Fisher and Justin Foster were at the front of the field for the June 3 make-up feature to kick things off on Saturday night. Fisher led but there was a caution on the start when Wyatt Hinkle ended up sitting sideways on the front stretch.

The field lined up for a complete restart. Fisher shot out to the lead again with Foster to his outside. Foster’s trip to the top of the track allowed Jayden Wolf to get under him and move into second. Rumsey got by Foster for third on the next lap.

Steve Owings was working on Foster for fourth and took it. Kody Hartlaub followed, sending Foster back to sixth.

Fisher, Wolf and Rumsey were evenly spaced at the front of the field as they chased down lapped traffic. Owings caught Rumsey to challenge for third. The front of the field entered lapped traffic on lap 7 and it didn’t take long for Owings to get by Rumsey for third.

Fisher had trouble getting around a lapped car which allowed Wolf to close in. A three-car race for the lead between Fisher, Wolf and Owings was underway. Fisher had the lead when the yellow came out on lap 15 for David Holbrook. Holbrook fell off the pace and came to a stop on the front stretch. Owings had made the pass for second but the yellow came out before the pass was official.

Fisher led Wolf, Owings, Rumsey and Niki Young to the cone for a single-file restart. Wolf was all over Fisher but did not make the pass. Owings went to the top in turn 2 and took second from Wolf. Owings went to the top again to battle Fisher for the lead. Fisher and Owings raced wheel to wheel down the back stretch with Owings taking the lead with three laps to go, right before the caution came out for Cole Knopp who spun in turns 1 and 2.

Owings had a good restart and pulled away. Rumsey was up next to Wolf to challenge for third but Wolf kept the spot.

Owings took the checkered flag for his first win of the season. Fisher crossed the line second and Wolf was third. Rumsey finished fourth and Young was fifth.

Abbottstown, PA (June 3, 2023) – Freddie Rahmer and the Eichelberger Team have the red #8 dialed in at Lincoln Speedway as they won their fifth feature of the season in the pigeon hills on Saturday night. Rahmer won the rain shortened Steve Smith Tribute Race taking home the $10,119 prize. Danny Dietrich was closing in on Rahmer on the final lap but got upside down in turn 2, putting an end to what was bound to be an exciting finish.

Chase Dietz and Billy Dietrich lined-up on the front row for the start of the 35-lap feature. The initial start was called back for a jump on the start by Dietrich, putting them back a row. That moved Tim Glatfelter and Freddie Rahmer to the front row for the second attempt at the race start.

Freddie Rahmer took the lead off of turn 2 with Glatfelter in second. Dietrich and Haas battled for fourth with Dietz in third.

Rahmer started closing in on lapped traffic just seven laps down. Dietz had closed in on Glatfelter to challenge for second as they worked through lapped traffic. The two swapped the spot back and forth with Dietz finally taking the spot on lap 13.

Danny Dietrich caught brother Billy to challenge him for fifth and took the spot on lap 17. Danny made quick work of Cory Haas to move up to fourth two laps later. Dietrich then had Glatfelter in his crosshairs for third. Danny took third on lap 22. Lap 23 saw Chase Dietz spin in turn 2 while running second, collecting Glatfelter, bringing out the yellow.

Rahmer led Danny, Haas, Billy and Dylan Norris for the restart with 12 laps to go. Rahmer went to the bottom and Danny went to the top into turn 1 on the restart. Norris looked under Billy for fourth and took the spot on lap 25. Tyler Ross followed and took fifth from Billy on lap 27.

As the laps wound down, Danny was closing in on Freddie to challenge for the lead. Dietrich was using the top of 1 and 2 while Rahmer stuck to the bottom. Danny was within striking distance with two laps to go and made a move in turn 2 on the last lap and flipped bringing out the red flag with one to go.

While the field sat on the track waiting for the accident to be cleared, the rain track officials had been trying to beat all night started to fall. The race was checkered on lap 34 with Freddie Rahmer winning the $10,119 Steve Smith Tribute Race. Rahmer was declared the winner despite having spun in turn 4 while stopping for the red since he was not involved in the incident that brought out the flag which is standard operating procedure. Haas was second and Norris was third. Ross, the night’s hard charger, drove from 10th to finish fourth and Billy Dietrich completed the top five.

The 358 sprint car feature will be made up at a later date.

Next Saturday, June 10, Lincoln Speedway is back in action with the Elijah Hawkins Memorial paying $7,000 to win for the 410 sprints featuring the PA Speedweek format. The 358 sprints will also be on the card and it is York County Racing Club Night. Racing starts at 7PM with pit gates opening at 4:30PM and grandstand gates opening at 5PM.

Borden, Eckert and Young Score Victories During Nicole's Dream

Port Royal Speedway, PORT ROYAL, Penn. (June 4, 2023)- On a night where the surrounding communities were littered with rain, hail and more inclement weather, Port Royal Speedway stood clear to race with a mission to make Nicole’s Dream a reality.

With kids’ giveaways, an auction, and raffles to benefit St. Jude’s Childhood Cancer Research, and three divisions of racecars featuring 86 hungry drivers on hand, it was a perfect scenario for a good night.

Not only did the fans who came out get rewarded, but Devon Borden, Rick Eckert and Drew Young all scored victories. Also, more than $5000 was raised to benefit Childhood Cancer Awareness.
Steve Buckwalter and Mike Walter II lined up on the front row for the Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Car feature event and it was Walter getting the early jump to lead lap one.

TJ Stutts, Blane Heimbach, Buckwalter and Logan Wagner rounded out the top five.

Heimbach, who started sixth for the 25-lap A-main, moved into second on lap two, while Logan Wagner took fourth. Walter quickly opened a 3.7 second advantage over the field, but racing was halted one lap later when Trenton Shaeffer went flipping in turn one with 22 laps to go. Shaeffer would walk away unhurt from the accident.

When racing returned to green-flag action, Heimbach attempted a slider in turn’s one and two. Walter kept his momentum on the top to hold onto the lead. Though the caution flew one lap later for a slowing Devin Adams on the frontstretch with 21 laps remaining.
Heimbach tried a slider on the restart, but Walter was able to cross back under to regain the top spot down the backstretch. Entering turn three, Heimbach tried the move again and he and Walter made contact exiting turn three.

Walter tried to cross back under down the frontstretch, but both cars spun into the outside guardrail. With a full field of cars behind them and nowhere to go, the incident collected Jeff Halligan (who flipped), Derek Hauck and Gerard McIntyre Jr. All five drivers were unhurt as a result, but none of the cars were in any shape to continue.

Stutts inherited the lead because of the wreck and the Liverpool, Pa native lead the field back to green with Logan Wagner, Buckwalter and Mike Wagner in tow. Borden, who started ninth in the feature cracked the top five and moved into fourth on lap eight.

Two laps later Logan Wagner made his play for the top spot in turn’s one and two, but Stutts was able to cross back under down the backstretch to hold onto the lead. Meanwhile, Borden continued his march to the front as he got by Buckwalter for third one lap later. The two briefly made contact, but both cars continued on.

Lap traffic became a talking point with 12 laps to go and within three laps Wagner was all over the tail tank of Stutts. The five-time defending champion made his move with nine laps to go. Using a slider in turn’s one and two, Wagner took the top spot and started to race away.

However, Wagner’s reign on top came to an end four laps later as he came to a slow on the frontstretch while leading. For the second time of the night, Stutts inherited the lead, but this time he had a hungry Borden and Justin Whittall behind him.

Whittall, who started 15th on the grid, slipped by Borden for the runner-up spot on the restart. However, one lap later Borden regained the spot. It only took one more lap for Borden to grab the top spot and form there the Washington native went untouched for his second victory of the season.

Dylan Cisney earned the $500 Valley Supply Hard Charger award after charging from 22nd to sixth, while Austin Bishop, Ryan Taylor, Kody Lehman and Tyler Bear rounded out the top ten. Heimbach, who was credited with 19th, earned the $1000 J&S Classics Warrior Award via random draw.

Rahmer Repeats In Williams Grove Sprints, Bright Scores Big With USAC East

 

6/2/23

Mechanicsburg – Freddie Rahmer of Salfordville won his second race in three weeks at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, pocketing $5,500 for his second sprint car win of the year at the track aboard the Eichelberger No. 8.

Elsewhere, the 30-lap USAC East 360 sprint Bill Gallagher Memorial event was scored by Alex Bright for the second year in a row.

Teenager Cameron Smith of Spring Grove started second in the 25-lap 410 sprint car main and would end up leading over half the race before Rahmer would get control.

Rahmer started seventh in the field and was up to fifth on the fifth lap while fifth starter Lucas Wolfe raced in second and challenged for the lead on al lap five restart.

Wolfe put a dive on for the top spot deep in the third turn only to see Smith reclaim command.

Rahmer made all of his passes for the front positions using the low line in turns one and two.

He motored by Steve Buckwalter for third on lap eight and then used the same move to get Wolfe for second on the 11th tour.

Rhamer then quickly drove down the lead that Smith had built, chopping off half-seconds by the lap to be running nose to tail for the win as the leaders completed the 14th lap.

And just after scoring the lap, Rahmer again broke low into the first corner to pull off the winning pass as the pair shot onto the backchute.

Eighth starter Danny Dietrich surged into second with a low swoop around Wolfe in the third turn with five laps to go.

A restart a lap later placed Dietrich on Rahmer’s tail for the new green but Rahmer proved up to the task, taking his 17th career oval victory by two car lengths.

Dietrich was second followed by Wolfe, Smith and Steve Buckwalter.

Sixth through 10th went to Billy Dietrich, TJ Stutts, Kyle Moody, Dylan Norris and Devon Borden.

Heats went to Austin Bishop, Smith and Buckwalter.

Christian Bruno took the lead at the start of the USAC East feature run in honor of former car owner Bill Gallagher.

Having just moved into the seat of Mike Heffner’s No. 27 machine within the past week, Alex Bright started 13th in the field and blasted into contention early, already up to fourth on just the second circuit.

Bright rose to second on lap four and then went to work running down Bruno’s advantage before taking the top spot on lap 13.

The rest of the event was all Bright while final starter and USAC East series point leader Briggs Danner put on a show using the high side.

Danner methodically passed car after car to eventually end up third at the finish, behind winner Bright and Chris Allen Jr.

Worth $5,000, the win was Bright’s fourth in a row in USAC East appearances at the track dating back to last season.

Bruce Buckwalter Jr. finished fourth with Steve Drevicki ending up fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Joey Amantea, Carmen Perigo Jr., JT Ferry, Dalton Herrick and David Swanson.

Heats went to Danner, Bruno and Mike Thompson.

Lance Dewease $29,000 richer with Bob Weikert Memorial win at Port Royal Speedway

PORT ROYAL, Pa. (May 28, 2023) - For the second time in three tries, Lance Dewease is a Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 feature winner, doing so in fantastic fashion with a $29,000 payday in the annual Bob Weikert Memorial at Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal, Pennsylvania. Dewease, who was victorious in Williams Grove’s Doug Esh Tribute just two nights prior, led all 29 circuits in the Weikert main event, increasing his All Star win tally to 46-career, 15 at the Port Royal “Speed Palace.”

In addition, the National Sprint Car Hall of Famer bumped his Port Royal career total to 122, three of which occurring in Bob Weikert Memorial winning fashion.

Only one caution interrupted action on Sunday night, that taking place on lap 18. The momentum shift erased a near-five second lead for Lance Dewease, forced to eventually fend off the “Legend” Mike Wagner and Bob Weikert Memorial night one winner, Anthony Macri.

Macri, who started ninth, would power to second immediately following the restart, but a clear path and clean air allowed Dewease to maintain control.

“Well, I knew where Anthony [Macri] wanted to run, and I knew where Mike [Wagner] wanted to run. That was probably the most nervous I’ve ever been at the start of a race…just didn’t know if I had enough for these guys,” Dewease, driver of the Conduit/Glenville Station No. 69K sprint car, said. “I wanted to make sure I didn’t follow any lapped cars too closely. Luckily enough, we got here.

“To have Davey Brown with us here tonight is really special,” Dewease added. “For his age, he works really hard on this race car…everyone does. These guys really revitalized my career and we’re going to ride this wave for as long as we can.”

Although using every inch of Port Royal’s outer edge, the cushion was not enough for Anthony Macri, forced to finish second at the Juniata County Fairgrounds, followed by Wagner, Danny Dietrich, and Devon Borden.

“That late caution was helpful, but it didn’t help enough. I knew with Lance being in clean air, he was going to take off,” Macri said. “I kept trying to run the top as hard as I could. I just wasn’t close enough to do anything at the end. We’ll take a second and be proud.

Bill Brian Jr. scored the Wingless Sportsman victory following the 410 Sprint Car A-main!

Tezos A Feature (29 Laps): 1. 69K-Lance Dewease[1]; 2. 39M-Anthony Macri[9]; 3. 55W-Mike Wagner[6]; 4. 29W-Danny Dietrich[4]; 5. 23-Devon Borden[2]; 6. 55-Hunter Schuerenberg[14]; 7. 26-Zeb Wise[7]; 8. 45H-Jeff Halligan[17]; 9. 7BC-Tyler Courtney[10]; 10. 15H-Sam Hafertepe Jr[11]; 11. 1-Logan Wagner[13]; 12. 6-Ryan Smith[12]; 13. 11-Cory Eliason[3]; 14. 19-Brent Marks[5]; 15. 12-Blane Heimbach[26]; 16. 33M-Gerard McIntyre Jr[25]; 17. 17B-Steve Buckwalter[16]; 18. 33W-Michael Walter[19]; 19. 47K-Kody Lehman[21]; 20. 91-Kyle Reinhardt[20]; 21. 97-JJ Hickle[18]; 22. 70-Scotty Thiel[15]; 23. 11T-TJ Stutts[23]; 24. 29-Sye Lynch[24]; 25. 5-Dylan Cisney[8]; 26. 51-Freddie Rahmer[22] LAP LEADERS: Lance Dewease (1-29)

 

 

Gallagher 5G To Win For USAC East Sprints At Williams Grove Friday

410 and wingless 360 sprints share the card on School’s Out Night

5/28/23

Mechanicsburg – The Apple of the Eye of the USAC East 360 Sprint Car Series’ season is on tap at Williams Grove Speedway coming up this Friday, June 2 as the circuit stages the second running of the Bill Gallagher 5G To Win.

The Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint cars will be in action as well on H & N Landscaping School’s Out Night.

The wingless USAC East 360 cars will gather and compete in the Gallagher 5G race to honor late USAC East and URC car owner Bill Gallagher of King of Prussia.

Gallagher fielded his familiar No. 5G sprint car for decades with URC and later with USAC East and earned five URC series titles in his career with Curt Michael at the wheel.

The special, high-dollar USAC East 30-lap feature will pay 5G ($5,000) to win on June 2. The race will also pay $300 just to start the main event, boosting the total main event purse to nearly $16,000 for the 360 sprints!

There will be NO time trials.

Joey Gallagher of GEI Enterprises will present the USAC wingless sprint special in memory of Bill Gallagher.

Aside from USAC East drivers like series point leader Briggs Danner, Steve Drevicki, Alex Bright and Bruce Buckwalter Jr., it’s likely that at least a few outsiders will enter the action to claim the big top prize.

Bright outran Danner to claim the Gallagher race last season at Williams Grove and the Collegeville driver already has one win at the track this season.

The 410 sprints will join the USAC East cars on the special June 2 racing program.

Lance Dewease became the first repeat winner of the season in seven races on May 26 when he nabbed the All Stars Doug Esh Tribute Race worth $10,000. Other winners to date have been Zeb Wise, Brent Marks, Chase Dietz, Brad Sweet, Freddie Rahmer.

Gates will open at 5:30 pm with racing action slated for 7:30.

School’s Out Night fun and games will take place in the infield before and during the races with fireworks for the kids during intermission.

Representatives from the Milton Hershey School will be on hand for School’s Out Night, giving away T-shirts and Hershey chocolate bars to kids in attendance as they celebrate the beginning of Summer vacation.

Adult general admission for June 2 is $20 with students ages 13-20 admitted for $10.

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

BOB LEIBY MEMORIAL WINS GO TO FREDDIE RAHMER, KYLE HARDY and MICHAEL SMITH

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Saturday, June 10, 2023 (7PM) ELIJAH HAWKINS MEMORIAL: 410 Sprints [TT] and 358 Sprints (York County Racing Club Night)

Saturday, June 17, 2023 (7PM) PA SPEEDWEEK TUNE-UP for 410 Sprints, plus Super Late Models (Appalachian Late Model Speedweek)

Abbottstown, PA (May 27, 2023) – Freddie Rahmer took over the lead in the point standings last week and with his fourth win of the season on Saturday night, Rahmer now sits at the top of the standings ahead of last week’s winner, Dylan Norris.

Rahmer started the 30-lap feature from ninth and made his way to second before the half-way point of the feature. Freddie lined up behind Norris for a late-race restart, “I misjudged Dylan on the restart. I thought he was going to the bottom but he didn’t. I checked up and turned down the bank and got a run and got him down there.”

Despite scoring his fourth win of the season in the pigeon hills, Rahmer and the Eichelberger #8 were a little off, “We got lucky to get by Dylan there on that restart. In the open track it was hard to make a move,” Freddie continued, “Just glad to get the win there after being a little off in the feature.”

Pole sitter, Aaron Bollinger, took the lead when the green flag dropped on the 30-lap feature. Tim Wagaman was in second and Glenndon Forsythe was third. Forsythe, Jordan Givler, Cameron Smith and Dylan Norris were all battling for third when the caution came out on lap 1 for Jeff Miller who sat spun around in turn 1.

Bollinger led Wagaman, Forsythe, Givler and Smith to the cone for the single-file restart. Bollinger got a good jump on Wagaman and Givler looked to the inside of Forsythe. Givler moved up to third and Norris was working his way through the field and got by Forsythe for fourth. Freddie Rahmer was also on the move from his ninth starting spot. Norris got by Givler to take third before the red flag flew on lap 4. Forsythe got upside-down on the back stretch with Cory Haas also involved.

The top five for the restart were Bollinger, Wagaman, Norris, Givler and Smith. Wagaman went low on the restart but the top worked well for Bollinger and he maintained the lead. Smith and Givler battled for fourth and Norris was up to second on lap 6. Smith got up to fourth leaving Givler to fend off Rahmer as he challenged for fifth. Freddie took fifth on lap eight as Norris was closing in on Bollinger for the lead.

Freddie was up to third on lap 11 and Norris was battling Bollinger for the lead in lapped traffic. Dylan took the lead at the line on lap 12 just as the yellow flag flew for Jeff Miller who slowed and came to a stop on the back stretch.

Norris paced the field ahead of Bollinger, Freddie, Wagaman and Givler for the restart. Dylan pulled away and Rahmer got under Bollinger for second as they raced into turn 3.

Givler, Kyle Moody and Chase Dietz battled for sixth as Smith got by Wagaman for fourth. Dietz got by Wagaman for fifth on lap 16.

The leaders were in heavy lapped traffic with 10 laps to go allowing Rahmer to close in on Norris. Dylan and Freddie were bumper to bumper in turns 1 and 2 with Norris holding onto the lead by inches on lap 23. Freddie took the lead coming out of turn 2 but the caution came out before the lap was completed when Zach Allman spun in turn 1. Norris regained the lead for the restart with Rahmer, Bollinger, Dietz and Smith completing the top five.

Rahmer and Norris both went high into 1 with Rahmer shooting down to the bottom in turn 2. Freddie got a good run off turn 2 and took the lead with a slider in turns 3 and 4.

Norris stayed close looking for a way to take the lead back. Moody and Deitz were in a fierce battle for fourth when they both spun out on the front stretch bringing out the caution on lap 26.

Anthony Macri Scores Opening Night of All Star Circuit of Champions Bob Weikert Memorial

Port Royal Speedway - PORT ROYAL, Penn. (May 27, 2023)- Anthony Macri backed up his 2022 sweep of the event with a dominant performance during night one of the 2023 All Star Circuit of Champions Bob Weikert Memorial.

Macri bested Mike Wagner, Brent Marks, Lance Dewease and Logan Wagner to score the $10,000 triumph. The victory was Macri’s 22nd of his career at the Juniata County oval.

“This thing was a pleasure to drive for sure,” said Macri. “I’m honestly kind of speechless.”

Mike Wagner and Justin Whittall lined up on the front row for the 30-lasp event and it was the veteran Wagner grabbing the early lead on lap one. Whittall, Macri, Tyler Courtney and Zeb Wise filled out the rest of the top five.

Macri, who started fourth, moved into the runner-up position on lap five. Logan Wagner was an early mover from his 10th starting position and three laps later the defending five-time track champion cracked the top five.

One lap later Mike Wagner was nose deep in lapped traffic and Macri and Whittall were in hot pursuit. It only took too more circuits, but Macri capitalized on Wagner’s struggles with the lappers to cruise round the top side of turns one and two to take the lead down the backstretch.

One lap later the younger Wagner continued his march forward as he moved into fourth, however Macri was cruising out front of the field with ease. By lap 18 Macri had stretched the distance between him and Mike Wagner to close to four seconds.

Four laps later Logan Wagner cracked the podium for the first time and another four laps later Dewease, who started 16th on the grid, moved into fifth.

Marks got by Logan Wagner for the final podium position one lap later and Dewease followed suit into fourth. However, Macri was not to be denied as without a caution, he cruised home to a 9.7 second advantage to capture night one of the event.

“We got into second and Wagner was setting a pretty good pace and I decided I was going to wait for lapped traffic,” said Macri. “I kind of manned up and got up top and started running like I normally do. I knew I had to get up top and make as much speed as I could, and we got it done.”

Dewease earned $1000 as the night’s hard charger courtesy of Valley Supply and Loan Dakota Acres, while 16th place finisher Dylan Cisney scored $1000 courtesy of J&S Classics as the events Warrior Award winner via random draw.

Wise, Jeff Halligan, Whittall, Courtney and Blane Heimbach rounded out the top ten.

Dewease Makes History For Kreitz At Williams Grove, Wins 10K In All Stars Esh Tribute

Don Kreitz Jr. becomes winningest sprint car owner in oval history with 93

5/26/23

Mechanicsburg – Lance Dewease made more sprint car history at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night when he claimed the All Stars Circuit of Champions Sprints Doug Esh Tribute Race, worth $10,000.

With the win, Dewease made car owner Don Kreitz Jr. the winningest sprint car driver in history at the track with a win total that now stands at 93.

Kreitz overtook late car owner Al Hamilton to claim the record with 61 of the 93 victories to Kreitz’s credit coming with him as an owner/driver before Dewease moved into the seat of his No. 69K.

The victory itself was the 113th of Dewease’s career at the famed oval of which 10 are now All Stars wins.

Chase Dietz started on the pole for the 30-lap Esh race flanked by ace Devon Borden.

However on the first lap, Anthony Macri, who was looking for his first win of the year at the track, hustled by Borden to snare the second spot and set his sights on Dietz.

Borden fell to third but hung in contention for the second spot and in fact had just pulled the trigger to reclaim the position when disaster struck the leader in the third turn.

Nearly simultaneously with Borden’s pass for second, Dietz spun at the front of the field and while Borden and Macri skated by, Freddie Rahmer wasn’t as lucky.

With Borden’s pass negated, Macri assumed command for the restart with Dewease restarting in fourth after taking the initial green flag from the seventh spot.

And while Dewease seemed to struggle to get around any cars during those first 10 laps, the second 10 seemed totally opposite.

He mowed down All Stars point leader Tyler Courtney for third when action resumed before quickly catching Borden for second and taking that spot on lap 12.

In four more laps Dewease was racing in the leader’s shadow but it took until lap 19 for the winning move to take place as the leader worked traffic.

Working well off of the bottom in turn four, Dewease ate up Macri’s advantage to cross the line side by side for control, edging into the narrowest of leads barely visible to the naked eye by clocked at .012 seconds.

But the next 11 laps certainly produced a visible advantage for Dewease as he got away from the field while attention turned to 11th starter Danny Dietrich.

By lap 25 Dietrich was up to second and trying to close on Dewease.

A caution flag with four laps to go for a shredded tire on Tyler Courtney’s mount cleared the way for both drivers with Dewease pulling away to a 3.089 second lead at the finish.

Dietrich finished second followed by Macri, Borden and Kyle Moody.

Sixth through 10th went to Dylan Norris, Jim Siegel, Cory Eliason, Zeb Wise and Brent Marks.

Heats went to Borden, Moody, Tim Shaffer and Dewease.

Dietz won the dash to earn the pole for the feature while Kyle Reinhardt scored the B Main.

Norris set overall fast time with a lap of 16.999 seconds in qualifications.

Feature Finish:

410 sprints, 30 laps: 1. Lance Dewease, 2. Danny Dietrich, 3. Anthony Macri, 4. Devon Borden, 5. Kyle Moody, 6. Dylan Norris, 7. Jim Siegel, 8. Cory Eliason, 9. Zeb Wise, 10. Brent Marks, 11. Justin Whittall, 12. Tim Shaffer, 13. Chad Trout, 14. Kyle Reinhardt, 15. Freddie Rahmer, 16. TJ Stutts, 17. Sam Hafertepe Jr., 18. Lucas Wolfe, 19. Chris Windom, 20. Hunter Schuerenberg, 21.

quickly started lapping cars. Spahr grabbed the lead as they raced
into turn three in heavy traffic on lap 10.

Duke stayed with him challenging for the lead a few laps later in turn
three, but couldn’t complete the pass. It was Spahr scoring a
record-setting fifth straight series win by about 1-second over Duke.

“Hats off to Selinsgrove, that was a great race track,” Spahr said. “I
know how good Ken is on the bottom. Once I saw his nose down there, I
had to take his line away as quick as I could. We went three-wide down
there and it was great racing.”

Doug Dodson, Owen Dimm and Seth Schnoke completed the top five. Austin
Reed, Croix Beasom, Kruz Kepner, Zach Rhodes and Timmy Bitner rounded
out the top 10.

Josh Spicer was the Hard Charger. He finished 13th.

Spahr has the fastest lap in warm-ups at 18.676 earning the Jim
“Slippery” Snyder Fast Time Award and $50. The award was presented by
Brian Snyder in honor of his dad, who passed away recently and had
been a push truck driver at Selinsgrove, and other area speedways, for
over 50 years.

Kepner, Dodson and Bitner won the heat races.

Devin Hart, of Port Royal, came out on top of a wild feature for the
limited late models that saw several drivers battle for the top spot.
Ryan Zook and Andrew Yoder followed Hart. Casey Steinhoff was the Hard
Charger.

Brenneman, Yoder and Smith won the heat races.

Jake Jones won the Roadrunner Challenge and $600. Levi Vail, Ty
Huntsberger, Keith Bissinger and Nate Romig completed the top five.

All Stars Doug Esh Tribute Race Is Friday At Williams Grove
Only appearance of season by All Stars celebrates career of “The Hammer”
May 26 holiday weekend kickoff is sprints only!

5/21/23

Mechanicsburg – Presented by HVAC Distributors Inc., Williams Grove Speedway will celebrate Memorial Day by kicking off the holiday weekend with the $10,000 to win Doug Esh Tribute Race for All Star sprint cars coming up this Friday night, May 26 at 7:30 pm.

The only appearance of the season by the All Stars Circuit of Champions Sprints at Williams Grove will serve to honor former throttle jockey “The Hammer,” Doug Esh of Lancaster.

Esh’s former car owners Dick and Leslie Leach and John Trone along with mechanics Dennis Kohler, Rob Peters and Jim Shreiner will gather for a special pre-race show in the infield beginning just after 5:30.

The special, high-dollar event will be another show in the 2023 Hoosier Diamond Series at the speedway.

Esh ended his run in the sport back on 2017 but not before leaving his mark on Williams Grove and the area in general.

One of his crowning achievements at Williams Grove was scoring the World of Outlaws National Open and the $50,000 top prize that accompanied it in 2006.

Esh’s win at that time was billed as the richest ever in track history, coming aboard the Leach No. 30.

In total, Doug Esh owns 60 career 410 sprint car wins, 24 of which came at Williams Grove Speedway,

Prior to 410s, Esh was successful in 358 sprint competition, recording 17 checkered flags in his career including five at Williams Grove.

Other notable wins in Esh’s Williams Grove career include triumphs in the Mitch Smith Memorial (2), Jack Gunn Memorial and The Tommy Classic.

He was the 2006 Diamond Series Champion at the track.

Fireworks will be part of the sprints only racing program.

All Stars winners at the track last season were Danny Dietrich (2), Brent Marks and Lance Dewease.

All Stars To Stage Only Williams Grove Race Of Season This Week
Travelers hit town to battle in Doug Esh Tribute 10K to win event!

5/21/23

Mechanicsburg – Fans will get only one chance to see the All Stars Circuit of Champions Sprint Cars Series do battle at Williams Grove Speedway this season and that chance is coming up this Friday, May 26 at 7:30 pm.

Presented by HVAC Distributors Inc., the only appearance of the season by the All Stars at Williams Grove will be for the Hoosier Diamond Series Doug Esh Tribute Race, paying a cool $10,000 to win.

Esh’s career will be honored with a special pre-race show in the infield beginning just after gates open at 5:30 pm. The show will be broadcast on Beerhill Gang TV via Facebook.

After starting their history at the track back in 1970 when local Bobbie Adamson took a win for car owner Al Hamilton, it was 2019 until a bonafide touring All Star in the form of Aaron Reutzel was able to break into victory lane at Williams Grove Speedway for the first time.

All other shows had been won by the locals and only once since has an All Star, again as in Reutezel, taken a Williams Grove win.

Since September of 2020 when Reutzel last won, it has been only Williams Grove regulars or and independent scoring oval All Stars wins.

So how is the field shaping up for this one and only invasion of 2023 by the All Stars.

The series will again be led into the track by two-time and defending series champion Tyler Courtney of Indianapolis, Indiana.

Courtney is again atop the All Stars point standings this season with a win under his belt.

His closest pursuer in the points, Hunter Schuerenberg of Sikeston, Missouri., has also been to victory lane this season on the tour.

Other All Stars expected to invade include Parker Price-Miller, Chris Windom and Zeb Wise who has already proven he knows how to get around Williams Grove this season by picking up the 2023 oval opener in April.

These drivers will prove to be the All Stars best prospects for a win when they get to Williams Grove while the locals will pin their hopes on drivers like Lance Dewease, Anthony Macri, Brent Marks, Danny Dietirch and others.

So far this season at Williams Grove, six races have produced six different winners in the form of Zeb Wise, Lance Dewease, Brent Marks, Chase Dietz, Brad Sweet and most recently Freddie Rahmer.

Rahmer is the current Williams Grove point leader over Danny Dietrich.

All Stars winners at the track last season were Dietrich (2), Marks and Dewease.

Abbottstown, PA (May 20, 2023) – Just a week shy of the anniversary of his first Lincoln win, Dylan Norris scored his second career Lincoln victory in the pigeon hills on Saturday night. Norris lined up sixth for the feature and was up to second by lap 8 and took the lead at the line on lap 13.

Rookie driver Brett Strickler started on the pole for the 30-lap feature with Chris Arnold lined up second. Strickler and Arnold raced wheel to wheel into turn 1 with Strickler taking the lead out of turn 2.

Sixth starting Dylan Norris got up to third quickly. Zane Rudisill was holding off Chad Trout and Anthony Macri as they challenged him for fifth.

Cameron Smith got upside-down in turn 4 on lap 6 bringing out the red flag. Trout headed to the pits with a flat left rear tire and wheel damage. Trout’s team got the tire changed and he was able to rejoin the field.

The top five for the restart were Strickler, Arnold, Norris, Cole Young and Rudisill. Norris was all over Arnold on the restart. Anthony Macri was up to fifth with Moody vying for the spot.

Norris got under Arnold for second and Young followed sending Arnold back to fourth. Macri caught Arnold and worked the bottom of the track trying to take fourth as Norris closed in on Strickler. Norris took the lead at the line by a nose on lap 13 as they caught lapped traffic. Dylan was pulling away from the rest of the field as he worked his way through traffic. Young was reeling in Strickler when the two made contact in turn 2 causing Strickler to flip which brought out the red flag on lap 17.

Norris, Young, Arnold, Macri and Moody were the top five for the restart. Macri got up next to Arnold and took third coming out of turn 4. Macri got bit by the cushion in turn 2 allowing to retake fourth. Chase Dietz was working on Moody for fifth when Tyler Ross brought out the caution on lap 21 after he spun in turn 4. Zach Allman was also involved.

Norris crossed the line 3.755 seconds ahead of Young. Arnold was third and Macri finished fourth. Moody completed the top five.

Chad Criswell Kicks of MacMor Summer Series With a Win

The 2023 MacMor “Summer Series” for the 358 sprint cars kicked off at Lincoln Speedway on Saturday night and Chad Criswell took the win, his fourth career victory at Lincoln.

Pole-sitter, Chad Criswell, led the field into turn 1 with Chris Frank, Kyle Spence, David Holbrook and Jayden Wolf in tow. You could throw a blanket over second through fifth on the first lap. Frank pulled away and the rest of the top five fell into place.

Jayden Wolf brought out the caution on lap 3 as he sat backwards in turn 4. Wolf had been running fifth.

Criswell led Frank, Spence, Holbrook and Steve Owings to the cone for the single-file restart. Criswell pulled away when the green flag dropped.

The yellow flag flew again on lap 6 when Cody Fletcher fell off the pace on the back stretch.

There was no change in the top five for the restart and once again Criswell got a good jump. Spence looked under Frank for second and took the spot. Owings got under Holbrook coming out of turn 2 for fourth.

Criswell was all alone out front as he caught the tail end of the field on lap 11. Owings was up to third on lap 14 after getting by Frank.

Holbrook was all over Frank for fourth and took the spot down the back shoot on lap 17. Holbrook then got by Owings for third and went to work reeling in Spence. As Holbrook was closing in to challenge for second, Spence brought out the caution after stopping in turn 2 on lap 21.

Criswell, Holbrook, Owings, Frank and Doug Hammaker lined up at the front of the field for the restart. Kody Hartlaub looked to the inside of Hammaker on the restart for a spot in the top five but did not make the pass.

The yellow came out on the restart when Bo Gordon stopped in turn 1.

Criswell paced the field slowly on the restart. Hammaker got by Frank for fourth. Jordan Strickler flipped in turn 2 on lap 22 bringing out the red flag.

Criswell, Holbrook, Owings, Hammaker and Frank were the top five for the restart. Owings looked to the outside of Holbrook but could not make the pass. The yellow flag flew one final time on lap 23 when Chase Gutshall stopped at the exit of turn 2.

Criswell, Holbrook, Owings, Hammaker and Hartlaub made up the top five for the green, white, checkered finish.

Criswell got to the checkered flag 1.268 seconds ahead of Owings. Hammaker was third and Holbrook crossed the line fourth. Hartlaub finished fifth after starting eighteenth.

Rahmer Snaps Williams Grove Losing Streak, Gets First Win Since 2021

Hammaker snags 358s for first win since 2019

5/19/23

Mechanicsburg – Freddie Rahmer snapped a 39-race losing streak at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, taking victory in the $5,000 to win 410 sprint car main event.

His last win at the track came on July 16, 2021, with a different team.

His win on Friday night was his first at the oval for veteran driver turned car owner Rich Eichelberger of Dillsburg.

In the 358 sprint main it was Doug Hammaker taking his first win in the division since 2019.

Invader Justin Peck could lead only the first two laps of the 25-lap 410 sprint feature before third starter Rahmer made his presence known aboard the No. 8.

Rahmer tried a move to the outside of Peck in the third turn that didn’t pan out so he then turned the car to the inside and drove under Peck to take command at the line for the completion of lap three.

And once out front, Rahmer began to pull away before hitting traffic with 15 laps to go.

At first the backmarkers fell easily to Rahmer but as the laps wore on they became more challenging until Rahmer got bottled up trying to put the car of Jarrett Cavalet behind him.

This allowed Peck to close the gap considerably while Brent Marks and Lance Dewease battled for third.

Dewease took the spot using his patented low line just before the red flag appeared for Cavalet who slammed the inside wall at the end of the frontstretch before walking away from the crash.

The open track and clean air did wonders for Rahmer as he pulled away to the win on the restart to get the victory by 1.580 seconds.

“It’s been way too long,” Rahmer said in victory lane.

“It’s about time we got it done. The red at the end probably helped us.”

Dewease got Peck for second on lap 24.

Peck ended up third followed by Marks and Anthony Macri.

Sixth through 10th went to Danny Dietrich, Dylan Norris, Kyle Moody, Chase Dietz and Steve Buckwalter.

Buckwalter was the PA Dyno Hard Charger.

Heats went to Dewease, Rahmer and Dietrich.

Peck set overall quick time in warm-ups with a lap of 17.579 seconds.

Hammaker wired the field for the 20-lap 358 sprint car feature win.

Four yellow flags hampered the race but Hammaker was up to the test on each restart.

Chris Frank got by Zach Newlin for second on lap 14 for a career-best finish.

Newlin was third followed by Derek Locke and Tim Glatfelter.

Sixth through 10th went to Kody Hartlaub, Steve Owings, Scott Fisher, Jayden Wolfe and Cody Fletcher.

Fletcher was the PA Dyno Hard Charger.

Heats were taken by Newlin, Hammaker and Yost with Frankie Herr scoring the consolation.

Feature Finishes:

410 sprints, 25 laps: 1. Freddie Rahmer, 2. Lance Dewease, 3. Justin Peck, 4. Brent Marks, 5. Anthony Macri, 6. Danny Dietrich, 7. Dylan Norris, 8. Kyle Moody, 9. Chase Dietz, 10.

Port Royal Speedway

The World of Outlaws Case Construction Late Models will invade the Port Royal Speedway this Saturday night May 20th. The event will pay $15,000-to-win for the Super Late Model division. The Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprints will join the show for $6,000-to-win as well and will take part in group time trials.

General admission will be $30, with student admission $20 and pit admission $40. Pit gates open at 4pm, while general admission gates open at 5. Racing is scheduled to kick off at 7pm.

The event will be the ninth visit of the World of Outlaws Late Model Series to the Speed Palace in series history. In 2007 Darrell Lanigan of Union, Ky., won the first event in series history at Port Royal. Clint Smith of Senoia, Ga., picked up the win in 2008, Brandon Sheppard of New Berlin, Ill., was the winner when the series reappeared in 2017, Mike Marlar of Winfield, Tenn., won the series event in 2018, regional hot shoe Mason Zeigler of Chalk Hill, Pa., was the series winner in 2019, and Chris Madden of Gray Court, S.C., swept a two-nightweekend in 2021 against the World of Outlaws Late Models.

Jared Miley was the most recent winner with the series at the track last season as he claimed a popular victory for the state of Pennsylvania for his first career Outlaw victory.

Rick Eckert is the current points leader at the Speedway with a 35-point advantage over Hayes Mattern. Jeff Rine, Dillan Stake and Colton Flinner make up the rest of the top five. Michael Norris was the most recent winner in the division at the Speedway and ironically, he did it in the same car Miley drove to victory last season against the Outlaws. As of early this week, 44 cars have committed to attending the event and kore are likely to attend.

Madden leads the current Outlaw point standings entering the weekend with an 18-point advantage over Kyle Bronson. Ryan Gustin, Brian Shirley and Sheppard make up the rest of the top five. Nick Hoffman, Bobby Pierce, Tanner English, Dennis Erb and Gordy Gundaker complete the top ten.

Regarding the Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Cars, it’s Devon Borden on top of the point standings with a 40-points advantage over second-place Dylan Cisney. Jeff Halligan, Justin Whittall and Gerard McIntyre Jr make up the rest of the top five.

With the huge two-day Bob Weikert Memorial on tap for the division next weekend and an increased $6000 payday this weekend, you can expect many cars attending the event looking for track time and the extra dollars. In four total events held this season for the divisions, we’ve seen four different winners. Blane Heimbach was the most recent winner on May 6th.

ANTHONY MACRI WINS RAY TILLEY CLASSIC FOR SPRINT CARS AND COLEBY FRYE WINS LATE MODELS ON MOTHER’S DAY SPECIAL

SELINSGROVE, PA - Anthony Macri has been doing a lot of traveling this season, but returned to Selinsgrove Speedway Sunday night where he’s had a lot of success recently.

At one point, he had a 6-second lead, although Danny Dietrich applied some pressure following a late-race restart, it was all Macri at the front.

“There’s something about this place and the set-up we have figured out for his place is pretty good and really easy to drive,” Macri said. “I really wasn’t trying to push that hard at the beginning. I wanted to save some for the end.”

Austin Berry was the early leader in the 25-lap late model feature over Coleby Frye and Dylan Yoder. They split a slower car coming off turn four with Frye taking the lead at the half-way point.

He held on for his second straight track win. Berry, Dylan Yoder, Brett Schadel and Rick Eckert completed the top five. Jim Bernheisel, Nathan Long, Cory Lawler, Jeff Rine and Dan Stone rounded out the top 10.

Sweet Dominates To Win Night One Of Williams Grove Morgan Cup

5/12/23

Mechanicsburg – The Big Cat, Brad Sweet dominated Friday nights World of Outlaws sprint car feature at Williams Grove Speedway in the opening of Morgan Cup Weekend.

The Grass Valley, California, driver netted $10,000 for the victory that was just the second of his career at the oval.

The four-time and defending outlaws series champion, Sweet drew the pole for the dash and drove to victory in the six-lap match, earning the top starting spot for the 25-lap main.

Sweet took the lead at the start over second starter Rico Abreu and had built a straightaway advantage when his pace was first slowed with five laps down for a spun Sam Hafertepe Jr.

The restart saw Sweet keep the lead and again build a sizeable advantage over Abreu, stretching it to over two seconds by lap 12 as he raced up on the rear of the field.

And then just as he was ready to begin lapping cars, his way was cleared on lap 14 when a second caution flag appeared, this time for a slowing Brock Zearfoss.

Only two more laps could be spun off before yet another yellow flag brought the field back together again but Sweet was the class of the field when action resumed.

Action for second heated up on the restart as Brent Marks used a third turn blast underneath Abreu to snare the spot with eight laps to go.

He was never able to close on the leader however as Sweet took the win by 2.248 seconds.

Donny Schatz muscled third away from Abreu during the final few circuits.

Abreu was fourth at the finish followed by Anthony Macri.

Sixth through 10th went to David Gravel, Lance Dewease, Justin Peck, Carson Macedo and Logan Schuchart.

Heats went to Peck, Macedo, Abreu and Macri with Freddie Rahmer taking the B Main.

Sweet won the dash.

David Gravel set overall quick time in qualifications with a lap of 16.760 seconds.

With the win, Sweet became the fifth different winner in as many races to date this season at Williams Grove.

The Morgan Cup concludes on Saturday night with a 30-lap main paying $17,000 to the winner.

Acton begins at 7:30.

PASS Looks For Dry Bullring At Path
05-11-2023

Looking to square the balance sheet at four races run versus four rainouts, the River Valley Builders PA Sprint Series returns to Path Valley Speedway Saturday for its second try at running on the series’ oldest active track, where more than 200 feature races have run since 2000.

The 25th Anniversary PASS season has been slowed by rain, including a wet Saturday on April 15, when the series was supposed to have opened its 2023 season at the high-banked bullring that sits up against a mountain near Spring Run in northern Franklin County.

This weekend’s event is truly action-packed, with three full-sized open-wheel divisions – 358 sprint cars, wingless super sportsman cars, and the IMCA/RaceSaver/PASS sprinters – plus 270 and 600 micro sprints and 4- cylinder thunder cars. Gates will open at 4:00 p.m., with warm-ups starting at 6:00, and racing to follow.

Six PASS events were run at Path last season, with the now-departed three-time champion Garrett Bard of Wells Tannery winning half of them. The other three were won by Kruz Kepner of Kreamer, Scott Frack of Gilbertsville, and Doug Dodson of Middletown. Dodson and Kepner are expected to be in attendance, along with more than two dozen other racers.

Of the drivers entered as of early in the week, Dodson is the career wins leader with three. Other past winners expected include Donnie Hendershot of Clear Springs, Md., Mike Alleman of Port Royal (who grabbed his win 22 years ago), and Jeff Weaver of Lock Haven.

All those drivers should be considered contenders, along with Austin Reed of Etters, who finished runner-up twice and third once in four 2022 Path starts; Zach Rhodes of McVeytown, who had a runner-up finish and claimed his first RaceSaver win recently in a VA Sprint Series race; Paul Moyer of Beaver Springs, who came oh-so-close to his first win before falling to Bard in last season’s final race here, and Logan Spahr of Lewisberry, who has been unbeatable so far this season but had only a sixth as his best finish at Path in ’22.

By one count, this will be the 202nd PASS feature at Path Valley, which ran its first race for the series in August of 2000. In all likelihood, that count misses at least a couple of races from the years when PASS records are incomplete.

Adult general admission for Saturday’s action is just $10 ($3 for kids 10 and under). Pit admission is $30, plus a one-time $5 membership for first-time competitors.

Next Saturday, the River Valley Builders PASS tour will attempt a return to Selinsgrove Speedway.

Port Royal Speedway

- PORT ROYAL, Pa – (May 7, 2023)- Blane Heimbach charged forward from the ninth position to score a popular victory in Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Car competition Saturday night.

The victory, worth $5300, came over Devon Borden, Jeff Halligan, Steve Buckwalter and Dylan Cisney. It was Heimbach’s 15th career triumph at the Speed Palace, which moved the Selinsgrove Sensation into a three-way tie with Bryan Osgood and John Dubendorf for 22nd on the all-time win list at the Speedway.

“quote”

Buckwalter and TJ Stutts lined up on the front row for the 25-lap A-main and the two were duking it out for the lead when racing was halted because of a scary four-car incident that saw Mike Wagner get upside down and Mark Smith go out over the guardrail. Bill Jones Jr. and Jake Karklin were involved in the accident as well and all drivers were ok.

When green-flag action returned to the track it was Buckwalter getting the jump coming out of turn two to lead the opening circuit over Stutts and Borden.

By lap three Heimbach had entered the top five and one lap later he used the bottom to move into fourth. Four laps later Buckwalter had caught the tail end of the field, while Stutts and Borden were duking it out for the runner-up spot behind him.

The fight for second became a three-car battle two laps later as Heimbach got by Borden for third. He then dispatched Stutts for the second spot on lap 11 and Borden followed suit to claim the final podium position one lap later.

The second caution of the event flew one lap later for debris in turn’s one and two, which allowed Heimbach to re-start on the tail of Buckwalter. Buckwalter held his ground in turn one and two following a return to racing action, but Heimbach capitalized in turn’s three and four to take the lead coming to the line with 12 laps to go.

Justin Whittall came to a slow on the backstretch the following lap to bring out the event’s final caution with 11 laps remaining. Not to be denied, Heimbach took off with ease on the restart. One lap later Borden ripped the lip of the Speedway to move into the runner-up position, while Halligan moved into fourth with nine to go.

Heimbach hit lapped traffic five laps later and Halligan continued his march to the podium moving into third with three laps to go. However, nobody had anything for Heimbach as he cruised home to victory.

Stutts, Austin Bishop, Logan Wagner, Derek Locke and Michael Walter II rounded out the top ten. Heimbach earned the night’s $500 Valley Supply Hard Charger Award, which brought his haul to a total of $5800 for the night, while 13th-place finisher Lucas Wolfe earned the night’s $1000 J&S Classics Warrior Award via random draw.

Michael Norris scored his second career victory in Selinsgrove Ford Super Late Model competition with a $4000 victory Saturday nightover Mason Zeigler, Rick Eckert, Hayes Mattern and Jeff Rine.

Rine and Zeigler lined up on the front row and it was Zeigler getting the early jump on the field to lead lap one over Norris, Rine, Donald Lingo Jr and Eckert.

It only took one lap for Norris to overtake Zeigler for the top spot as he got by for the lead exiting turn four. Eckert cracked the podium on the following lap, though neither he or Zeigler had anything for Norris.

Norris cruised home to the victory and looks to be a threat heading into a big World of Outlaws Late Model Series visit to the track in a few weeks.

Dillan Stake, Colton Flinner, Kyle Lee, Kyle Hardy and Gary Stuhler completed the top ten.

Abbottstown, PA (May 6, 2023) – Freddie Rahmer started the season off strong, winning two of the first three races at Lincoln. Rahmer found himself back in victory lane on Saturday night after nearly a month of rainouts to take home the $5,000 prize. With Saturday’s win, Rahmer has won four National Fallen Firefighters “Guise-Little Memorial” races in a row, “It’s a really good race we always look forward to.”

The night started with time trials with Rahmer going out last and putting down the fourth quickest lap, “We did a good job in time trials to position ourselves for the heat race. We have to take advantage of these time trial shows.” Freddie won his heat race putting him in the redraw for the feature line-up where he drew the pole. Rahmer took the green flag at the start of the race and never looked back, “I knew early I was making good time.” Rahmer won his third feature of the year by 9.276 seconds over Dylan Norris.

Dylan Norris set quick time to start off the night with a lap of 13.392 seconds. Freddie Rahmer drew the pole in the redraw with Cory Haas picking the two pill. Billy Dietrich, who drew the third starting spot, took the BAPS Auto Paints & Supply challenge which was $2,500 guaranteed to start at the rear of the 35-lap feature.

In his first appearance of the season, Cory Haas lined up to the outside of Rahmer. Rahmer jumped to the lead at the drop of the green flag with Haas in second and Norris in third. Norris was all over Haas for second and just as Haas was able to put some distance between himself and Norris the yellow came out on lap 3 for Alan Krimes who spun in turn 4.

Freddie led Haas, Norris, Danny Dietrich and Tim Glatfelter on the restart. Haas went low into turn 1 with Norris high and the two swapped lines in turns 3 and 4 allowing Norris to challenge for the runner up spot.

The yellow flag waved again on lap 4 when Aaron Bollinger fell off the pace on the front stretch. Norris looked to the outside of Haas on the restart with Haas hanging on to the spot.

Lap 6 saw the red flag come out when Chris Arnold spun in turn 4 and collected Brett Strickler who flipped.

Norris went to work again on Haas for second while Rahmer pulled away. Kyle Moody was up to fifth and was closing in on Danny.

Glenndon Forsythe, Tyler Esh and Jordan Givler got tangled together in turn 4 bringing out the caution on lap 10.

The top five for the restart were Freddie, Haas, Norris, Danny and Moody. Moody pressured Danny for fourth as they raced wheel to wheel down the back stretch. Moody took the spot at the line on lap 12. Norris finally got up beside Haas for second and made the pass on lap 13. Norris had a long way to go to challenge Rahmer for the lead. Moody went to work on Haas for third and Rahmer entered lapped traffic.

Danny caught Moody to try and regain fourth as they raced through lapped traffic. Dietrich got by Moody going into turn 1 and Troy Wagaman followed, sending Moody back to sixth. Danny got by Haas for third and again Wagaman followed. Moody and Haas battled for fifth as the laps wound down. Dietrich closed in on Norris with Wagaman in tow. Danny was all over Norris at the white flag.

Rahmer crossed the line more than 9 seconds ahead of Norris. Danny finished third and Wagaman was fourth. Moody completed the top five.

After taking the BAPS Auto Paints & Supply challenge of starting at the rear of the field, Billy Dietrich finished 14th and won the hard charger bonus.

Kody Hartlaub Makes it Two for Two

Pole sitter Cody Phillips took the lead when the green flag dropped but Kody Hartlaub led lap 1 after he passed Phillips coming out of turn 4.

Hanson in third Niki Young in fourth Hammaker in fifth

Jaremi Hanson was closing in on Phillips and the two battled for second down the back stretch. Doug Hammaker got by Niki Young for fourth and was closing in on Hanson and Phillips. Hanson moved up to second and Hammaker followed, sending Phillips back to fourth.

Justin Foster was off the pace on the front stretch bringing out the yellow on lap 8.

Hartlaub, Hammaker, Hanson, Phillips and Young made up the top five for the restart. Hammaker was running a higher line than Hartlaub and was able to stick with the leader. Young was battling Hanson for third and made the pass coming out of turn 2 to take the spot on lap 12. Hammaker slid Hartlaub for the lead but Kody took it back at the line. Hammaker was still all over Hartlaub with five laps to go as they closed in on lapped traffic. Hartlaub put a lapped car between him and Hammaker but it did not last for long with two laps to go.

The yellow flag flew on lap 19 when Chase Gutshall and Jordan Strickler got together in turn 4.

Hartlaub, Hammaker, Young, Hanson and Phillips lined up for a one-lap shoot-out. Hartlaub scored his second win in a row to make it two for two on the season . Hammaker finished second and Young was third. Hanson crossed the line fourth and Phillips completed the top five.

World Of Outlaws Morgan Cup Is This Weekend At Williams Grove

Two-day invasion spans May 12 & 13

5/7/23


Mechanicsburg – The H & N Landscaping World of Outlaws Morgan Cup is set for this Friday and Saturday, May 12 and 13 at Williams Grove Speedway.

The two-night stand by the outlaws series drivers will be the first match-up of the travelers versus the Pennsylvania Posse pilots of the season at the oval.

Friday will find the action culminating in a 25-lap main paying $10,000 to the winner.

And then Saturday’s Morgan Cup action will come to a close with a 30-lap feature paying $12,000 to win plus another $5,000 for Morgan Cup bragging rights.

Action both nights gets underway at 7:30 pm.

Saturday’s winner will be crowned Morgan Cup Champion, laying claim to the cup trophy for the year ahead as it makes its home either at outlaws headquarters in North Carolina or at the offices of Williams Grove Speedway in Pennsylvania.

The event’s namesake is that of former track owner, Morgan Hughes.

Last year in the Morgan Cup, Brent Marks took the win in the only show of the weekend that was completed thus keeping the cup at its Keystone State home.

Dietz Outruns Rahmer To Score 6K Williams Grove Payday In Outlaws Tune-up

Locke uses last turn move to get 358 victory

5/5/23

Mechanicsburg – Chase Dietz outran Freddie Rahmer to win the outlaw tune-up race for 410 sprint cars at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night.

The York driver pocketed $6,000 for his third career division victory at the track.

In the 358 sprint main, Derek Locke used a last lap, last turn pass to steal the win away from Nash Ely.

Dietz and Dylan Norris shared the front row for the start of the 25-lap 410 sprint main and it was Norris that took control when action began.

His rapid pace was quickly slowed however on lap two when Dylan Cisney slowed.

The restart saw Norris jet away as Dietz fended off a Rahmer challenge for second and by lap eight Norris was working traffic on the lightning-fast track.

Norris nearly went for a ride in the first turn while trying to put Kody Lehman a lap down but averted disaster only to soon get bottled up by both Lehman and Jarrett Cavalet who were racing side by side for position.

This allowed Dietz to drastically close the gap on the leader but then another yellow flag on lap 13 slowed the paced and dramatically changed the event.

As Norris raced to stay out of harms way, the car of Cameron Smith got out of shape in turn two and Norris had no where to go, instead spinning his car.

At the same time, Dietz came upon the scene and somehow squeezed through the narrowest of gaps between the two lame racers to emerge on the backstretch with the lead.

The restart saw Dietz hold sway over Rahmer comfortably and with four laps to go the race again entered the rear of the field.

Dietz worked both lanes of the track with ease to put cars behind him and take the win by 1.621 seconds over Rahmer, Danny Dietrich, Jeff Halligan and TJ Stutts.

Sixth through 10th went to Tyler Ross, Chad Trout, Justin Whittall, Brandon Rahmer and Kyle Reinhardt.

Dietz became the fourth winner in as many races at the track this season as the stage is set for the May 12 and 13 World of Outlaws Morgan Cup weekend at Williams Grove.

Heats went to Stutts, Norris and Dietz with Dietz earning the pole by claiming the dash.

Halligan set quick time in qualifications, turning in a lap of 16.372 seconds.

The 358 sprint main saw polesitter Nash Ely lead the first 16 nonstop laps.

During the first several laps, fourth starter Chad Criswell challenged for the lead, taking second on the first circuit before zoning in on Ely.

But eventually Ely was able to break free of the competition as he raced for his first career victory at the oval.

Ely entered lapped traffic with 11 laps to go before Locke raced into second with nine loops remaining.

But with four laps to go, the only caution flag of the race appeared for the stopped car of George Streaker.

Ely maintained control on the restart, hitting his marks in the corners to thwart an attack by Locke but on the final tour the tables turned.

Locked got a great run off of the cushion in the second turn and then blasted to Ely’s outside in the third and fourth turns to steal the lead and win at the line.

Ely finished second followed by Kody Hartlaub, Doug Hammaker and Steve Owings.

Sixth through 10th went to Chad Criswell, Justin Foster, Kyle Keen, Frankie Herr and Jayden Wolfe.

Heats went to Hartlaub, Nat Tuckey and Justin Foster with Jaremi Hanson scoring the consolation race.

410 sprints, 25 laps: 1. Chase Dietz, 2. Freddie Rahmer, 3. Danny Dietrich, 4. Jeff Halligan, 5. TJ Stutts, 6. Tyler Ross, 7. Chad Trout, 8. Justin Whittall, 9. Brandon Rahmer, 10. Kyle Keen, 11.

Let’s Stop The Rainouts
05-02-2023

This does NOT need to be the week to make history.

As the River Valley Builders PA Sprint Series celebrates its 25th year of competition, rainouts are definitely NOT among the elements of PASS history being celebrated, so with the current rainout streak having hit three in a row, it’s time for a change.

The PASS/IMCA/RaceSaver sprinters will make yet another attempt at running their third event of 2023 at Port Royal Speedway Saturday night. PASS is sponsored at the Port by Penns Valley Meat Market, which also presents the Hard Charger Award. The PASS racers will join the 410 sprints and late models for a 7:00 p.m. start on Ladies Night.

IF the weather cooperates.

It usually does, but there are precedents in PASS’s history for wet misery. The last time four straight races were rained out was 2018, starting the last weekend in April, when BAPS Motor Speedway, Port Royal, Selinsgrove Speedway, and BAPS again were washed out. (The Port race was run in June.)

About a dozen or so current PASS drivers were active during that wet streak.

In 2015, races were rained out over four consecutive weekends in June and July, but due to weekend doubleheaders and a weeknight race, three events were run in between the cancellations.

You have to go all the way back to May and June of 2010 to find another dismal streak of four rainouts in a row. Williams Grove, Path Valley, Port Royal and Path Valley again were affected then, plus, after a race was run on Friday night of the next weekend, another Saturday night race was cancelled, almost extending the streak to five straight.

Please, no.

Assuming the best, the plotline for Saturday will be whether Logan Spahr of Lewisberry can extend his winning streak to three straight for 2023 or four straight dating back to last October’s Keystone RaceSaver Challenge. While Spahr wasn’t involved with PASS back in 2018, his car owner, Wally Eshenour, was a semi-regular on the tour and suffered from that previous wet streak.

A healthy turnout of sprinters can be expected for the race, including likely challengers Seth Schnoke of Pine Grove (runner-up to Spahr in both races this season), and Ken Duke Jr. of Selinsgrove (two top-5s and two-time PASS champion). Austin Reed of Etters (2022 points runner-up), Timmy Bittner of Beech Creek, Dylan Shatzer of Hagerstown, Md., and Zach Rhodes of McVeytown, all have top-5 finishes in 2023 as well.

Adult general admission Saturday is $20 (students $10), and pit admission is $35. Pit gates will open at 4:00 p.m., grandstands at 5:00.

The River Valley PASS tour will take another shot at visiting Path Valley Speedway on Saturday, May 13, hopeful that the weather cooperates.

Run in honor of former track owner Morgan Hughes, Saturday night’s event will go 30 laps for a $12,000 payday plus another $5,000 for Morgan Cup bragging rights.

Friday’s main will be 25 laps in distance and pay the winner $10,000.

Last year in the Morgan Cup, Brent Marks took the win in the only show of the weekend that was completed.

His win meant that the Morgan Cup trophy itself would again find its way back home to the offices of Williams Grove Speedway, where it has taken up residence until this season when the home of the trophy is again decided with another running of the contest.

An outlaws win in the Morgan Cup this time around would mean that the trophy will trek southwards for a year to take up residence at circuit headquarters in North Carolina.

California’s Carson Macedo is the current outlaws point leader, holding sway over David Gravel and Brad Sweet.

Gravel has the most wins on the tour to date with four under his belt.

Freddie Rahmer is the current Williams Grove point leader.

Action both nights of the 2023 Morgan Cup weekend gets underway at 7:30 pm.

Adult general admission for May 12 is $30 with students ages 13-20 admitted for just $15.

410 Sprints And URC 360/358 Sprint Challenge At Williams Grove Friday

4/23/23

Mechanicsburg – The Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint cars and the URC Sprint Series will be in action at Williams Grove Speedway coming up this Friday, April 28 at 7:30 pm.

For the popular URC 360 sprints, the event will be a challenge race with the regular Williams Grove HJ Towing & Recovery 358 sprint cars.

The 410 sprints will race for $5,500 to win.

The URC 360/358 sprints will race for a purse offering $2,000 to win and $200 to start.

Both main events will be 25 laps in distance.

Josh Weller was victorious in URC action at the track last season.

URC history at the track dates back to 1948 when Lucky Lux took a win.

In recent history, at least a few of the Williams Grove 410 sprint drivers usually choose to compete in both classes when the 360s are in action.

And the decision has proven a good one over the years with pilots like Anthony Macri, Steve Buckwalter, Mark Smith and the late Greg Hodnett picking up checkered flags among others.

Devon Borden is one such driver that will be pulling double duty this time around. Lucas Wolfe is also a possibility.

In 410 sprint action at the track this year so far, three exciting races have produced three different winners in the form of Zeb Wise, Lance Dewease and Brent Marks most recently.

The 358 sprints opened their season at Williams Grove on April 7 when Cody Fletcher scored his first-ever oval victory.

May 5 will feature another 410 sprint and 358 sprint doubleheader at Williams Grove as the 410s compete in a Hoosier Diamond Series World of Outlaws Tune Up race.

Adult general admission for April 28 is $20 with students ages 13-20 admitted for just $10.

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

Marks Overcomes To Win Williams Grove Tommy Classic 8K

Myerstown Missile gets second win in a row in oval event

4/21/23

Mechanicsburg – Brent Marks overcame adversity and went on to win the Tommy Classic for sprint cars at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, taking the checkers worth $8,000.

It was Marks’ second win in a row in the event after scoring the 2022 version as well.

In the street stock main, Kody Sites scored the stock car victory to close the night.

Marks’ bid for a second straight win in the Tommy Hinnershitz Classic seemed doomed from the first lap when the front wing on his No. 19M collapsed on the left side.

At the same time, polesitter Justin Peck took command of the 30-lap event and began speeding away with Marks in second and Anthony Macri racing in third.

Peck entered lapped traffic on the eighth tour before the first caution flag of the race appeared with 10 laps down for a spin by Kyle Moody.

Peck got a great restart and drove off from the field while Macri took second from Marks with a low move in the first and second turns.

The leader then again hit the rear of the field on lap 17 and began putting cars a lap down.

Darting through traffic, Peck’s No. 13 seemed to be cornering on rails as he cruised the cushion with conviction but then disaster struck with 10 laps to go when smoke began pouring from his mount.

And with that, Peck’s bid for the victory ended as he coasted to a stop, handing the lead over to Macri.

However, Macri’s run with the lead would be short lived as the restart saw Marks surprise many when he darted to the leader’s inside.

A half lap later in the third turn he completed the move with a deep blast under Macri that would end with a slider that netted control and the eventual win by 1.957 seconds.

It was the 16th win of Marks’ career at Williams Grove.

“I knew if I cold get far enough beside him I could complete the pass,” Marks said of his turn three swoop for the lead.

With under two laps to go Danny Dietrich and Lance Dewease took advantage of a Macri slip-up on the cushion to take the second and third spots for the finish.

Macri recovered for fourth with Kyle Reinhardt finishing in fifth spot.

Sixth through 10th went to Dylan Cisney, Chase Dietz, TJ Stutts, Freddie Rahmer and Lucas Wolfe.

Rahmer was the PA Dyno Hard Charger after starting the race in 18th spot.

Heats went to Reinhardt, Macri and Dietrich with Sye Lynch taking the consolation race.

Peck set fast time with a lap of 17.081 seconds.

Kody Sites took the lead from Aaron Beard on lap seven of the 20-lap street stock feature before going on to the win.

Brian Walls led the first four laps before pulling pitside.

Sam Rial was second in the feature with Beard third followed by Bobby Meixsell and Russ Shoop.

Heats were won by Walls and Sites.

Feature Finishes:

410 sprints, 30 laps: 1. Brent Marks, 2. Danny Dietrich, 3. Lance Dewease, 4. Anthony Macri, 5. Kyle Reinhardt, 6. Dylan Cisney, 7. Chase Dietz, 8. TJ Stutts, 9. Freddie Rahmer, 10. Lucas Wolfe, 11.

Tommy Classic Launches Diamond Series Friday At Williams Grove Sprints race for 8K to win in 30 lap tribute

4/16/23

Mechanicsburg – Williams Grove Speedway will present the Tommy Hinnershitz Classic on Seifert Concrete Night coming up this Friday evening, April 21 at 7:30 pm.

The annual Tommy Classic will be the first race of the season in the Hoosier Diamond Series at Williams Grove.

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

Brent Marks of Myerstown is the defending Tommy Classic winner having taken the victory in an All Stars event last season.

The late Craig Keel won the first Tommy race in 2007.

No one has won more Tommy Classic races than Lance Dewease who is a three-time victor.

So far this season with only two sprint car events in the book at Williams Grove, only Zeb Wise and Dewease have taken wins.

Hinnershitz Legacy Honored Friday At Williams Grove

4/16/23

Mechanicsburg – Friday’s sprint car show at Williams Grove Speedway will 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 21 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.

Dewease, Bright And Spahr Win Spring Sprint Special Williams Grove Mains

4/14/23

Mechanicsburg – Lance Dewease won for the 112th time in his sprint car career at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, outracing Danny Dietrich for a $5,500 victory.

Dewease’s win came in one of three sprint features on the night as part of the Spring Sprint Special at the oval where Alex Bright also won in the USAC East 360 sprint feature and Logan Spahr took the win in 305 sprints.

The 25-lap 410 sprint main went non stop with both Dewease and Dietrich lining up on the front row for the start.

Dietrich kept leader Dewease within sight during the early going before the pair entered the rear of the field with 15 laps to go.

Dietirch took his first jab at the leader on lap 13 but came up short and then a lap later he tried the move again deep in the third turn.

The Gettysburg pilot shot under Dewease and slid up to the cushion to briefly take control before Dewease turned his car to the low side and shot back by to regain command.

And the next time around, with Dietrich lurking, Dewease slammed the door as the pair shot into the third turn to again keep his challenger at bay.

With five laps to go Dietrich was still hounding the leader but a flawless drive by Dewease through traffic served to keep him out front as Dietrich tried to work the cushion.

Dewease took the checkers at the finish with a 1.393 second lead over Dietrich with Freddie Rahmer coming home third followed by Kyle Reinhardt and Devon Borden.

Borden originally crossed the finish line in third but was penalized two spots the finish for a jump on the initial start.

Sixth through 10th went to Austin Bishop TJ Stutts, Dylan Cisney, Lucas Wolfe and Steve Buckwalter.

Heats went to Troy Wagaman Jr. and TJ Stutts.

Kyle Moody was the PA Dyno Hard Charger, advancing from 20th to 11th.

Alex Bright wired the field for the 20-lap win in the USAC East 360 sprint main.

It was Bright’s third win in a row at the track in the division dating back to last season.

Briggs Danner started sixth in the field and motored into second with three laps to go.

The defending series champion, Danner took the lead from Bright with a huge slide job in the first turn on the final lpa only to watch as Bright dropped off of the cushion and muscled back into the lead on the backchute before taking the victory by .707 seconds.

Bobby Butler was third followed by Christian Bruno and Steve Snyder Jr.

Heats went to Butler, Bruno and Snyder with Billy Ney taking the consolation race.

Fourth starter Logan Spahr swept into the lead on the first lap of the 20-lap 305 sprint main and never looked back on his way to the win.

His pace was slowed by four yellow flags throughout but no one was able to challenge him for control.

Seth Schnoke raced into second behind Spahr with four laps to go.

Tommy Bittner, who ran second until Schnoke took the spot, finished third in the field.

Ken Duke Jr. was fourth and Austin Reed finished the race in fifth.

Heats went to Dustin Young, Johnny Scarborough and Kurz Kepner.

Devon Borden, Gregg Satterlee and Logan Spahr Celebrate Easter with Port Royal Wins

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway – PORT ROYAL, Penn (April 9, 2023)- Devon Borden outlasted Lance Dewease in a back-and-forth jockeying of position that lasted multiple laps to score his third career Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Car feature win at the Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night.

Zeb Wise, Dylan Cisney and Mike Wagner completed the rest of the top five. The win was worth $5000 for Borden and makes him the third different winner in three events this season for the 410 Sprint Cars at the Juniata County oval.

Justin Whittall and Borden lined up on the front row for the 25-lap event and it was Whittall getting the early jump on the field. Dewease, who started fourth on the grid, slid into the runner-up position on the opening lap followed by Borden, Kyle Reinhardt, and Austin Bishop.

Ninth-place starter Wise, who was following up a victory the night prior at Williams Grove Speedway, was up to sixth by lap seven, while Whittall was setting sail out front of the field.

Whittall hit lapped traffic one lap later and while trying to make a move on the cars exiting turn four with 16 laps to go, he got into the outside guardrail. This put both Dewease and Borden right on his tail tank coming to the line.

The three drivers raced nearly three-wide coming through turn’s three and four on the following circuit and Dewease was able to edge ahead by inches coming to the line to lead lap 10. It only took one more turn for Borden to get by Whittell as well for the runner-up spot and the young gun set his sights on Dewease for the lead.

Three laps later Borden tried a slide job in turn’s three and four on Dewease for the lead, but Dewease was able to inch back ahead coming to the line to re-take the lead.

However, Borden had a head of steam coming through turn’s one and two and was able to overtake Dewease down the backstretch to lead for the first time with 10 laps remaining.
Borden now had lappers to deal with and he struggled to dispense the car of Scotty Theil over the next two laps. He bobbled slightly coming out of turn two and it allowed Dewease to close and take back the lead exiting turn four with eight laps remaining.

Borden was able to regroup on the following lap and with another head of steam he got back by Dewease for the top spot for good. Dewease got one more opportunity on the final circuit as Borden again struggled with lappers. However, the last-ditch move came up just short as Borden came home to the checkered flag.

Whittall, Bishop, Reinhardt, Gerard McIntyre Jr and Mike Walter II completed the top ten. Walter earned the J&S Classics $1000 Warrior Award via random draw, while Wagner scored the $500 Valley Supply Hard Charger Award after advancing 11 positions in the feature.

Results- 1. Devon Borden, 2. Lance Dewease, 3. Zeb Wise, 4. Dylan Cisney, 5. Mike Wagner, 6. Justin Whittall, 7. Austin Bishop, 8. Kyle Reinhardt, 9. Gerard McIntyre Jr, 10. Mike Walter II, 11.

Gregg Satterlee capitalized on a front-row starting spot to capture his 16th career Selinsgrove Ford Super Late Model victory and first of the season. Opening day winner Dillan Stake finished second, followed by Rick Eckert, Hayes Mattern and Mason Zeigler completing the top five.

Jeff Rine and Satterlee lined up on the front row and it was Satterlee getting the quick jump and taking the lead on the opening lap. Stake settled into second from his third starting spot, with Rine in third.

Eckert, who started fifth for the 25-lap A-main, cracked the podium for the first time on lap 11. Satterlee hit lapped traffic one lap later, but the veteran diced in and out of the cars with ease on his way to victory.

The win, worth $4000, moved Satterlee into a tie with Chris Shuey for 16th on the all-time win list at the Speedway in the division.

Dylan Yoder, Rine, Andrew Yoder, Drake Troutman and Kyle Lee made up the rest of the top ten. Lee, who started 19th, was the evening’s hard charger as well.

Abbottstown, PA (April 8, 2023) – Kyle Moody’s last trip to victory lane at Lincoln Speedway came on August 3, 2019 and 1,345 days later he found himself back on the front stretch in the pigeon hills for career win number 5. Moody has shown speed early this season in the #99m and the first thing he shared in victory lane was a testament to how good his car was, “Man this car was fast tonight.”

Moody was handicapped to start eighth in the 30-lap feature after driving from sixth to second in his heat race, “I didn’t mind starting on the outside this car the last couple of races has just launched on these starts. We’ve been really good passing cars right off the get go.”

Moody was up to third by lap 6 got by Michael Millard for second on lap 12 with a slider in turns 1 and 2. After taking the lead on lap 19 the caution came out on lap 21 as Chase Dietz had caught Moody to challenge for the lead, “I wasn’t sure if I wanted that caution or not because I knew I was carrying a pretty good pace. I did see his (Dietz) nose there right before the caution.”

Dietz made one last attempt at the top spot on the final lap but Moody held him off for the win and to take home the $4,000 prize.

Prior to the green Dylan Norris and Tim Wagaman both went to the work area. Dylan did not come back out which allowed the alternate starter, Domenic Melair, to tag the rear for the start behind Wagaman who was able to change their flat tire for the start of the 30-lap feature.

Glenndon Forsythe got to turns 1 and 2 ahead of pole-sitter Michael Millard but Matt Campbell crashed down the back stretch bringing out the red.

The field lined up for a complete restart and this time Millard got to turns 1 and 2 first, with Forsythe in second and Cole Young third.

Billy Dietrich got under Trey Hivner for fourth. Kyle Moody followed to take fifth from Hivner. The red flag came out again on lap 4 for Tyler Esh in turn 2 on lap 4.

Millard led Forsythe, Young, Billy and Moody on the restart. Millard drove through the middle with Forsythe opting for the bottom. The top two raced wheel to wheel at the line with Millard holding the lead. Forsythe took the top spot from Millard coming out of turn 4 on lap 6. Moody was up to third and with Billy working on Young for fourth.

Forsythe was pulling away from the field with Young still fending off Billy’s challenge for fourth. Moody caught Millard and took second with a slider in turns 1 and 2 on lap 12. Billy got by Young for fourth and followed Moody past Millard to move into third.

Moody went to work reeling in Forsythe. Meanwhile Chase Dietz had raced his way to fourth. Moody took the lead coming out of turn 2 on lap 19. A four car race for the lead ensued between Moody, Forsythe, Billy and Dietz. Dietz got under Billy for third and then shot by Forsythe in the same lap to move up to second. Dietz used the bottom of the track to stay right on Moody’s tail tank.

The yellow flag flew on lap 21 for Millard and Freddie Rahmer coming out of turn 4. Moody, Dietz, Billy, Forsythe and Chad Trout made up the top five for the restart. Moody paced the field slowly on the restart which ended up working well for him. Trout got under Forsythe for fourth and Danny Dietrich made his way into the top five after getting by Glenndon.

Dietz made one last effort to pass Moody on the last lap but to no avail. Moody got to the checkered flag .583 seconds ahead of Dietz. Billy crossed the line third and Trout was fourth. Danny completed the top five.

Kody Hartlaub Scores 358 Sprint Season Opener Victory

After their original season opening date got rained out last week, 29 H & N Landscaping 358 sprint cars were on hand Saturday night for the first race of the season.

Pole-sitter Frankie Herr took the lead when the green flag dropped on the 20-lap feature. Kody Hartlaub and Nash Ely raced side by side into turns 1 and 2 behind Herr for second and third.

Hartlaub took the lead with a pass in turns 1 and 2 on lap 4 and never looked back.

Hartlaub was approaching heavy lapped traffic when the yellow flag flew on lap 9 for Kyle Ganoe who had stopped on the back stretch.

Hartlaub led Herr, Ely, Doug Hammaker and Hayden Miller on the restart. Hammaker went to the outside of Ely for third on the restart but was not able to complete the pass.

Joe Trone Jr and Nick Yinger got tangled on the front stretch bringing out the red on lap 10.

Hartlaub, Herr, Ely, Hammaker and Niki Young made up the top five for the restart. Hammaker went to the outside of Ely again and this time took third on the restart. Ely tried to return the favor but Hammaker held the spot.

Steve Owings got by Young to enter into the top five. Hartlaub found himself back in lapped traffic with three laps to go but it did not slow him down. Hartlaub crossed the line 2.039 seconds ahead of Herr for his second career win at Lincoln. Hammaker finished third and Ely was fourth. Owings completed the top five.

Zeb Wise Upsets Williams Grove Opener Field With Exciting Performance

Fletcher name returns to Grove victory lane with 358 sprint win

4/7/23

Mechanicsburg – The one month delay to get the 2023 season opener in the books at Williams Grove Speedway was well worth the wait as both sprint car divisions turned in exciting main events on Friday night with invader Zeb Wise scoring the upset victory in the 410 division.

In the 358 sprint main, long-time campaigner Cody Fletcher returned the Fletcher name to oval victory lane for his first ever track checkers.

The start of the 25-lap, 410 sprint feature was slowed when polesitter Danny Dietrich bit the inside turn four rail when green appeared, causing a flat front tire.

Dietrich would tag the rear for a new start while Freddie Rahmer took control off of the front row.

Anthony Macri and Zeb Wise of Angola, Indiana, trailed on the first lap.

The leaders were just about to enter traffic when Lance Dewease forced a caution period on the seventh tour after spinning in the second corner while running sixth.

The restart saw Rahmer race safely outside of Macri’s grasp still with Wise in tow before the front trio again raced up on and into the rear of the field with 10 laps to go.

Macri then began making time on the leader while blasting the top side in the first and second turns and by lap 17 the leaders were under a blanket racing through traffic.

Macri took a stab at snaring the top spot with an attempted flyer in the third and fourth turns with six laps to go only to bounce back away from Rahmer when he couldn’t complete the pass.

The next time around, Macri was able to muscle in front of Rahmer as the pair set their cars into the third turn but when Macri tried to hold Rahmer down to the inside groove, both drivers ended up sliding up across the racetrack and Zeb Wise was able to sneak by and lead lap 20.

However Macri went deep in turn for the next time around to take control from Wise and secure what he might of thought was the win.

But Wise simply would not let up and he hung with the leader the next three laps before seizing his opportunity on the final tour.

When Macri went high through the first and second corner, Wise blasted low into the turns and as a lapped car held up Macri the door was open for Indiana’s Wise.

And with that, the 20-year old bit fast and drove through the opening to get control and the upset win although Macri did his best coming off of turn four to the checkers to reclaim the point.

“Well holy shit, I can’t believe we just won at the Grove,” Wise proclaimed from the winner’s circle.

“I felt like I had the best car for the entire race. The whole race I stuck to the bottom in one and two,” he said.

“This is really rewarding to our whole entire team.”

Wise took the $5,000 victory by .182 seconds over Macri with Rahmer riding home in third and he picked up a $500 bonus thanks to the WC Eshenaur last lap pass award.

Chase Dietz was fourth and Devon Borden finished fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Tyler Ross, TJ Stutts, Brandon Rahmer, Kyle Reinhardt and Kyle Moody.

Heats went to Dietz, Borden and Wise with Sean Rayhall taking the consolation.

TJ Stutts lowered the track record in qualifications with a lap of 16.089 seconds.

Lucas Wolfe was the PA Dyno Hard Charger in the main event.

In the 20-lap 358 sprint feature, polesitter Chase Gutshall led the first four circuits before Kody Hartlaub would race into the lead.

The only caution flag of the race unfuled with 11 laps to go for a stopped Tyler Rutherford.

The restart saw Cody Fletcher and three time, defending track champion Derek Locke chasing the leader.

Fletcher pulled the trigger when action resumed with a low move in the first corner.

Hartlaub then went to work trying to reclaim the point by working the top lanes.

However at the same time Locke was working the lowside on Hartlaub before finally taking the spot on lap 19.

This allowed Locke to run up on Fletcher for the win but he fell short at the finish.

Hartlaub would end up third followed by Devon Borden and Steve Owings.

Sixth through 10th went to Gutshall, Scott Fisher, Chad Criswell, Nash Ely and Doug Hammaker.

Heats were taken by Fletcher, Owings and Creswell with Chris Frank scoring the consolation.

Jay Galloway was the PA Dyno Hard Charger.

Yellow Breeches Format Altered For Williams Grove Opener Friday A reminder to teams regarding tire usage

4/4/23

Mechanicsburg – Williams Grove Speedway will open the season on Friday night with a Yellow Breeches 500 race for the 410 sprint cars.

Customarily in Yellow Breeches races, cars that transfer to the feature from the heat races are handicapped into the A Main lineup based on each drivers earning’s average on the year to date.

However given that this week’s race is also the season opener and there have been no earnings, a slightly different process for lining up the main will be in place, as follows:

If two HEAT RACES (up to 20 Cars) are run, the top four heat finishers will advance into an inversion draw with the first heat winner drawing from an inversion possibility of 1, 2, 4, 6, or 8.

If three HEAT RACES (up to 30 cars) are run, the top three heat finishers will advance into an inversion draw with the first heat winner drawing from an inversion possibility of 1, 3, 6, or 9.

If four HEAT RACES (31-36 cars) are run, the top three heat finishers will advance into an inversion draw with the first heat winner drawing from an inversion possibility of 1, 4, 8, or 12.

The balance of the A-Main cars will be lined up based on heat race finish, behind any inverted cars. The B Main will be lined up based on heat race finish. B Main qualifiers will line up in the feature based on B Main finishing position.

The 410 sprint car teams are reminded that this week, April 7, only the new Hoosier D Series compound left rear tires and D15A and Medium right rear tires are permitted for use.

The same tires will again be mandated for the Tommy Classic on April 21.

Races on both April 14 and 28 will find both the old H Series and/or new D Series tire compounds permitted for use on both the left and right rears in an effort to allow teams to use up any old tire stock that may be in their inventories.

Beginning on May 5 and through the balance of the season, only the new Hoosier D Series compounds will be permitted.

Lucas Wolfe Uses Late-Race Restart to Win Sprint Car A-Main. Drake Troutman and Devin Hart take Late Model Checkers

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Penn (April 2, 2023)- Lucas Wolfe capitalized on a two- lap restart to score his first Weikert's Livestock 410 Sprint Car win of the season at Port Royal Speedway over Danny Dietrich, Gerard McIntyre Jr., Anthony Macri and Logan Wagner.

The win was worth $5000 for Wolfe and was the 13th of his career at the Juniata County oval. It moved into a tie for 30th on the all-time win list at the track with Barry Camp, Chad Layton, Mike Wagner and Stevie Smith.

“It’s obviously been a good bit for me here and this is my first time in this specific victory lane, so I’m pretty happy,” said Wolfe. “I’ve got to thank all the people who have stuck with me and keep working with me and hopefully we can be here more.”

AJ Flick and Jason Schultz lined up from the front row of the 25-lap A-main event and it was Schultz getting the quick jump on the field.

10th-place starter, Logan Wagner was making himself known early in the event as he was up to sixth by the completion of lap five. Three laps later he cracked the top five, while Schultz was in control up front.

One lap later Schultz hit lapped traffic and three laps later McIntyre had closed to the tail tank of the leader down the backstretch.

Dietrich, who started sixth on the grid, was in third and with 11 laps remaining the podium drivers were all under a blanket coming to the flag stand.

Dietrich got by McIntyre Jr for the runner-up spot exiting turn four on the following lap and he set his sights on Schultz up front.
Wolfe and Wagner swapped the fourth position with nine laps to go and seeing the five-time defending track champion on the prowl gave Wolfe the knowledge he needed to move forward.

“Logan showed me his nose there and I knew I kind of had to get going,” said Wolfe. “He made me have to kind of start searching and it seemed like the car just really came to me.”

With five laps remaining Dietrich made his move on the leader as he pulled a Hail Mary slider in turn’s one and two, but on the slick daytime surface, he was unable to hold the spot and Schultz regained the lead.

One lap later Wolfe dispatched of McIntyre for the final podium spot, while the top two were duking it out in front of him.

Wolfe appeared to overtake Dietrich for second with two laps later, but the caution came out when Schultz came to a slow while leading with a flat right-rear tire. Not only did it end Schultz’s storybook night, but it gave the lead to Dietrich and negated Wolfe’s pass.

However, when the green-flag waved for the two-lap dash, Wolfe wasted no time as he slipped under Dietrich for the lead exiting turn two and the Mechanicsburg native never looked back.

Devon Borden, Flick, Kody Lehman, Justin Whittall and Mike Walter II completes the rest of the top ten. 12th-place finisher TJ Stutts earned the $1000 J&S Classics Warrior Award via random draw, while 11th-place finisher Jeff Halligan earned the $500 Valley Supply Hard Charger Award after starting 18th on the grid.

Results-1. Lucas Wolfe, 2. Danny Dietrich, 3. Gerard McIntyre Jr, 4. Anthony Macri, 5. Logan Wagner, 6. Devon Borden, 7. AJ Flick, 8. Kody Lehman, 9. Justin Whittall, 10. Mike Walter II, 11. Jeff Halligan, 12. TJ Stutts, 13. Steve Buckwalter, 14. Blane Heimbach, 15. Mike Wagner, 16. Dylan Cisney, 17. JJ Hickle, 18. Austin Bishop, 19. Garrett Bard, 20. Jarrett Cavalet, 21. Jason Schultz, 22. Jake Karklin, 23. Kassidy Kreitz, 24. Rick Lafferty

Drake Troutman went start to finish as he led all 25 laps of the Selinsgrove Ford Super Late Model feature to score his first career victory at the Port Royal Speedway. Dylan Yoder went sixth to second, followed by Gregg Satterlee, Rick Eckert and Trever Feathers.

Jeff Rine, Colton Flinner, Hayes Mattern, Andrew Yoder and Gary Stuhler completed the top ten.

“This is huge for sure and it’s our first night out on a Longhorn Chassis,” said Troutman. “This is pretty special to get this win and hopefully we can keep the momentum going.”

The win was worth $4000 for Troutman.

Results- 1. Drake Troutman, 2. Dylan Yoder, 3. Gregg Satterlee, 4. Rick Eckert, 5. Trever Feathers, 6. Jeff Rine, 7. Colton Flinner, 8. Hayes Mattern, 9. Andrew Yoder, 10. Gary Stuhler, 11. Jason Schmidt, 12. Mike Lupfer, 13. Scott Flickinger, 14. Chad Myers, 15. Tim Wilson, 16. Shaun Jones, 17. Colin Knaub, 18. Nick Dickson, 19. Dillan Stake, 20. Austin Berry, 21. Justin Weaver, 22. Jim Yoder, 23. Justin Kann, 24. Tylor Emory

Devan Hart started second on the grid for the Dack’s Trucking Limited Late Model feature event and he’d go on the score the victory worth $1500 over Shawn Shoemaker, Taylor Farling, Trent Brenneman and Ryan Zook.

Hart held off a last lap attempt from Shoemaker to score the victory, which was his 10th career in the division at the track.
Casey Steinhoff, JR Toner, Eric Irvin, Matt Murphy and Chase Bowsman made up the rest of the top ten. 11th-place finisher Maddox Smith earned the night’s $150 River Valley Builders Hard Charger Award.

“The track was tough to race on with the conditions, but I think me and everybody else in the pit area were just happy to get the racing season started,” said Hart. “We were not really good in the heat, but honestly, we got pretty good in the feature.

Abbottstown, PA

CHASE DIETZ WIRES FIELD FOR FIRST WIN WITH NEW TEAM; Tanner Jones Scores Win in Lincoln Speedway Debut

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Saturday, April 1, 2023 (6PM) 410 Sprints + 358 Sprints

Saturday, April 8, 2023 (6PM) HANOVER CONCRETE NIGHT: 410 Sprints + 358 Sprints [Easter Egg Hunt & Big Wheel Races]

Saturday, April 15, 2023 (6PM) GOLF CART SERVICES NIGHT: 410 Sprints + 358 Sprints

Abbottstown, PA (March 25, 2023) – Chase Dietz and his new team have had a rough start to the 2023 season, but all of that changed on Saturday night at Lincoln with Dietz scoring a win to turn things around, “Glad to be able to do it, especially with the new team built. Pretty damn cool to get the first one out of the way this early in the season.”

Dietz started the night with a spin in hot laps but would win his heat and then lead every lap of the 30-lap feature on his way to a $4,000 payday. Despite leading wire to wire, it was not a walk in the park win for Chase. It took six tries to get a lap in the books, which included a fuel stop, “The workouts over the winter and staying in shape as much as possible definitely helped on this kind of deal.” Dietz also had an issue with the car during the feature, “I lost my brakes when Scott Fisher stopped. They seemed to come back on the restart and I was trying not to use them until we got to traffic and after that I was just hanging on.” Dietz hung on to score his eighth career victory at Lincoln.

Chase Dietz took the lead at the line after the green flag flew and held on to the top spot as they came out of turn 2 ahead of Zane Rudisill and Lucas Wolfe. The caution came out before a lap was in the books when Aaron Bollinger got into the wall in turn 4.

The field lined up for a complete restart and this time Dietz and Rudisill raced wheel to wheel for the lead at the line. Scott Fisher stopped on the front stretch facing the wrong direction bringing out the yellow flag again before a lap was completed.

Dietz had a better start on the third attempt with Rudisill and Wolfe running second and third when the red flag came out for Tim Wagaman in turn 4. With half the laps allotted for cautions already used, the red was opened up as a fuel stop.

After the fuel stop the field lined up for the fourth attempt which ended with Cole Young bringing out the caution in turn 4. The fifth try to start the feature resulted in Riley Emig bringing out the red when he flipped in turns 1 and 2.

For the sixth attempt to start the feature, the field lined up single file with Dietz, Rudisill Wolfe, Tyler Ross and Kyle Moody at the front.

Dietz had a solid start with Wolfe looking to Rudisill’s inside but did not make the pass. Wolfe stayed on Rudisill’s tail at the line as they continued to battle for second.

By lap 6 Dietz was closing in on lapped traffic. Rudisill passed Dietz for the lead coming out of turn 2 but the caution came out on lap 8 before the pass was official. The yellow was for Scott Fisher who fell off the pace.

Dietz led Rudisill, Wolfe, Ross and Justin Peck to the cone for the restart. Once again Wolfe looked under Rudisill for second but could not make the pass. Peck got by Ross for fourth and was closing in on Wolfe to battle for third.

Chase found himself in lapped traffic again on lap 16, this time with Rudisill hot on his heels.

Peck was all over Wolfe for third as they battled lapped traffic with Peck taking the spot on lap 25. Rudisill was closing in on Dietz as the laps counted down, but Dietz got to the checkered flag .546 seconds ahead of Rudisill for his eighth career win at Lincoln. Peck crossed the line third and Wolfe was fourth. Ross completed the top five.

Tanner Jones Scores Win in Lincoln Speedway Debut

Lincoln Speedway promoters made the decision to start every Legend car that could run for the 20-lap feature. That meant 32 cars lined up for the drop of the green flag.

Justin Wagaman stopped on the bottom of turn 3 before the initial start bringing out the yellow. Once the field lined up again and the green flag waved Jeremy Ott took the lead with Lincoln and Seth Kearchner, son and father, racing side by side behind him for second.

Seth got by Lincoln for second and Tanner Jones was in fourth. Jones looked under Lincoln battling for third. Mason Chaney stopped on the back stretch bringing out the caution on lap 4.

The top five for the restart were Ott, Seth, Lincoln, Jones and Rick Hartwig. Jones got under Lincoln for third on the restart before another caution on lap 5. Logan Carbaugh was spun around and Roy Warehime was stopped in turn 1.

Stephen Wurtzer got by Hartwig for fifth before the yellow flag flew again on lap 6 when Luke Stiles was sitting sideways in turn 4.

A three-car battle for the lead between Ott, Seth and Jones ensued on the restart. Jones got under Seth down the back stretch and then got by Ott coming out of turn 4 to take the lead on lap 9.

Lapped traffic came into play on lap 10 for the leaders. Ott, who was going for the all-time win record in Legends at the track, got together with a lapped car on lap 11 bringing out the caution.

Jones, Seth, Lincoln, Wurtzer and Travis Perry paced the field for the restart but Brady Arndt stopped on the back stretch before the field went green, bringing out the yellow.

Wurtzer drove under Lincoln for third but Lincoln held the spot at the line. Wurtzer did not give up and stayed on Lincoln’s tail to battle for the spot.

Scott Musselman got turned around in turn 4 bringing out the caution on lap 17.

This time Wurtzer got under Lincoln for third on the restart. The red flag came out on lap 19 when Shaun Abney got upside down coming out of turn 4. Chad Earnst was also involved and got into the guardrail in turn 4.

Jones, Seth, Wurtzer, Lincoln and Perry led the field to the cone for a one-lap shoot out.

In his Lincoln Speedway debut, Jones took the checkered flag .350 seconds ahead of Seth Kearchner. Wurtzer finished third and Lincoln Kearchner was fourth. Perry completed the top five.

Next Saturday, April 1, Lincoln Speedway is back in action with the 410 sprint cars and 358 sprint cars. Racing starts at 6PM with pit gates opening at 3:30PM and grandstand gates opening at 4PM.

BAPS Posts Hefty Guaranteed $20,000 Point Fund for Sprint Cars

YORK HAVEN, Pa.: During the offseason, the management team at BAPS Motor Speedway worked on making their product better for fans and race teams.

There were the normal Winter improvements at the speedway. The next step was tweaking the schedule by adding more diversity and bigger events, including a World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series date in July.

But Owner Scott Gobrecht and General Manager Kolten Gouse continued to push forward. The effort has paid off, and the team announced a historic point fund for the 410 Sprint Car division Wednesday that features a hefty $20,000 pool thanks to RV 4-Wheel Drive and Performance Automotive coming on board as the title sponsor and additional support from Denk Electric, Capitol Renegade, and SprintCarUnlimited.TV.

“This is something we’ve wanted to do since Scott purchased the speedway in 2015,” Gouse said. “Thanks to partners like RV 4-Wheel Drive and Performance Automotive, Denk Electric, Capitol Renegade, and our Pay-Per-View provider SprintCarUnlimited.TV, we were able to make this possible.

“One of the things we wanted to do this season is add more Sprint Car events. In doing so, we thought it would also be good to reward the teams that are going to support us during the 2023 season, and thanks to our sponsors, we were able to put a pretty good deal together for our 10-race series.”

The York Haven, Pa., facility has 11 Sprint Car events this season. The July 19 World of Outlaws event will not count toward the RV 4-Wheel Drive and Performance Automotive Sprint Series presented by Denk Electric, Capitol Renegade, and SprintCarUnlimited.TV.

"We are pretty stoked for this opportunity and new partnership with BAPS and their team," Shawn Smeigh, General Manager of RV-4 Wheel Drive and Performance Automotive said. "For several years dating back to Silver Spring Speedway, RV 4-Wheel Drive and Performance Automotive has been sponsoring Sprint Cars and local venues to keep our sport growing. I guess you can say we are pretty big fans. We love this sport and always try to contribute in different ways."

This year’s point champion will receive $5,000. Fifth place will receive $1,750, with 10th taking home $1,000. It should also be noted that the entire point fund is guaranteed regardless of how many races are completed.

“When we put this point fund together, we wanted to make sure we rewarded drivers throughout the top 10 finishers in the standings,” Gouse said. “For Sprint Car racing to be healthy, big teams and smaller teams need to make money, and we think this breakdown is fair across the board.

“We have a lot of things planned at BAPS Motor Speedway during the upcoming season. The RV 4-Wheel Drive and Performance Automotive Sprint Series presented by Denk Electric, Capitol Renegade, and SprintCarUnlimited.TV adds to what we are trying to accomplish at the speedway.”

The 10-race 410 Sprint Car schedule kicks off March 26 with a program that also features the 358 Sprints. It also features the Kevin Gobrecht Classic paying $10,000 to the winner on September 23 and the season-ending Final Showdown on November 11. More details on the schedule will be announced throughout the season.

Smeigh continued, "This new partnership with BAPS and their generous point fund for the Sprint Cars is no different. We look forward to seeing how this year plays out and hope to see many of the loyal racing fans at the track. We appreciate all the fans of racing that support us and make it possible for us to do things like this."

Williams Grove Season-Opening Outlaws Invasion Is Friday Night

Opening Day Will Feature The Greatest Show On Dirt March 17

3/12/23

Mechanicsburg – The season opener presented by Hoosier at Williams Grove Speedway will now take place this Friday night, March 17 at 7:30 pm when for the first time ever the World of Outlaws Sprint Cars appear at the track in March.

Never before have the outlaws stars gotten to shine at Williams Grove this early in the season much less in the coveted opening day event but Friday night’s $10,000 to win show will put an end to the Spring oval absence by the circuit.

Just five outlaws events have been held since the 2023 tour kicked off in Florida back in February, all having been run at Volusia Speedway Park.

Current point leader David Gravel has scored three of the five with other wins going to Carson Macedo and James McFadden.

Adult general admission for Friday is $30 with youth ages 13 – 20 priced at just $15.

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

Outlaws winners at the track last season were Lance Dewease (3), Brent Marks and Brad Sweet.

The earliest outlaws event ever run at Williams Grove Speedway occurred on May 11, 2012 when Fred Rahmer took a 25-lap main event aboard the No. 51.

Indiana’s Justin Peck scored the season opener at Williams Grove Speedway last year and has already been to victory lane in the area this season.

Over the years, no driver has stood in Opening Day victory lane at Williams Grove more than Fred Rahmer of Salfordville.

Rahmer took his first of six lidlifter wins in 1997 with his last coming in 2013

Williams Grove Speedway will spin off the only show of the season at the track for super late models on Friday night, March 24 when the ULMS circuit competes.

The super lates will race for $3,500 to win in a show that also includes the Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint cars.

And then the 358 small block modifieds will make a return to Williams Grove on March 31, sharing the card with the 410 sprint cars.

THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES

NAPA AUTO PARTS THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SEIRES. . . . .

GEARS UP FOR HUGE 2023 SEASON OF HIGH PROFILE & UNIQUE EVENTS AT GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY

BECHTELSVILLE, PA MARCH 9, 2023 . . . . . . The 2023 NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series at the Grandview Speedway will showcase four premier and totally unique events and it kicks off on Sunday night, May 28 with the Balls to the Wall 50 for 358 Modifieds. This event, created at, and only to be seen at the Grandview Speedway is a 50 lap, $5,000 to win Modified feature. But wait there’s more….

During the 50 lap feature, the field will slow on lap 20 and again on lap 35 when the leader will earn $1,500 for leading the segment. The top four cars on lap 20 and 35 will invert then go after the $5,000 check to win the feature. There will be a special payoff to all drivers running in the top ten on lap 20 and 35 in addition to the base payoff. Last year, Craig Von Dohren won the “Balls to the Wall” 50 with Duane Howard and Kevin Hirthler leading the segments.

This invert race challenges some drivers with strategy as others just go, balls to the wall.

With special thanks to Pioneer Pole Buildings, an additional $4,000 bonus is posted to any driver that sweeps the show making the 50 lap win worth $12,000. The 602 Sportsman will be part of the racing program taking part in qualifying events leading up to their 25 lap feature. Race time is set for 7:30 PM.

The AMSOIL USAC Non-Wing Sprints National Tour presented by Pioneer Pole Buildings will invade Grandview with the running of the Eastern Storm on Tuesday night, June 13. The USAC Sprints will go 40 laps in the Jesse Hockett Classic that will pay $6,000 to the winner. This show is always a popular event for the fans and if you have never seen non-wing 410 sprint cars on the Hill, you need to be sure to catch this one. You’ll see slide jobs, some wheel banging and a bounce or two off that outside boiler plate wall that makes this show so exciting. The 358 Modifieds will be on this popular program with qualifying heats leading up to the 30 lap feature event. Gates will open at 5 PM with racing getting underway at 7:30 PM.

For the June 13 and June 27 events, Pioneer Pole Buildings will again post a $2,000 bonus to any first time Modified feature winner. It will be a very memorable night for any first time Thunder winner as they will earn $5,000 to win the 30 lap main event.

In 2022, Alex Yankowski driving the Rich Stankiewicz modified enjoyed a jubilant victory lane celebration after winning his first ever Thunder on the Hill feature and collected the PPB $5,000 payday for the win. That same year, Tim Buckwalter was a near PPB First Time Bonus Award winner and other drivers coming so close where Ryan Krachun and Matt Stangle.

Looking to the June 13 and June 27 thirty lap modified events on the Thunder Series schedule, Buckwalter, Krachun and Stangle could again be in the hunt for the bonus along with Dylan Swinehart, Louden Reimert, Mike Lisowski, John Willman, Craig Whitmoyer and Brett Gilmore to name a few.

Thunder on the Hill is proud to be the first in the Northeast to unveil the High Limit 410 Sprints on Tuesday night, July 25. Race sponsor Levan Machine & Truck Equipment proudly present the Rich Mar Florist High Limit 410 Sprints.

Dylan Cisney and Dillan Stake Score Victories During 81st Annual Opening Day at Port Royal Speedway

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Pennsylvania (March 5, 2023)- Dylan Cisney capitalized on lapped traffic and used a late-race move to get by Parker Price-Miller to score his second career Port Royal Speedway Opening Day presented by Packer's Concessions, LLC. triumph in front of an amped up Juniata County fanbase Sunday evening.

The win, worth $5000, came over Price-Miller, Anthony Macri, Danny Dietrich, and Jeff Halligan. It was “The Mayor’s” seventh career victory at his local facility and moved the hometown kid into a five-way tie for 49th on the career win list of the Speedway with Brock Zearfoss, Jeff Shepard, Jim Nace and Mike Erdley.

“Did you guys like that one?” said a thrilled Cisney in victory lane. “These things are tough and it’s just neat to now be a two-time Opening Day winner and we got it done today.”

Scheduled fourth-place starter, Lance Dewease, lost any opportunity at scoring his third consecutive Opening Day title before the green flag dropped as he was forced to his trailer with mechanical issues as the field got lined up.

Cisney and Halligan lined up on the front row for the 25-lap feature event and it was Halligan jumping out to the early lead. Cisney, Price-Miller, Macri and Jason Shultz settled into the top five positions. Dietrich, Austin Bishop, Devon Borden, Dylan Norris and Gerard McIntyre Jr made up the rest of the top ten.

While the front four settled into their respective spots, Dietrich cracked the top five on following lap. The top five remained the same over the front five circuits, before Borden came to a slow on the frontstretch with 20 laps remaining to bring out the event’s first caution. He’d tag the end of the field after making repairs.

Price-Miller made his presence known following a return to green-flag action as he got by Cisney for the runner-up spot on lap seven. Norris moved into sixth one lap later, while 11th-place starter Mike Wagner moved into seventh with 15 laps remaining.

The caution would fly again one lap later, when 14th-place running Logan Wagner spun out in between turn’s three and four. Wagner, who is the defending track champion at the Speedway, had advanced 10 positions prior to the spin after scoring the final starting spot for the event in the B-main earlier in the night.

Mike Wagner continued his march forward after the field returned to green-flag action as he moved into sixth with 11 laps remaining. While Borden moved back into the top ten two laps later.

Halligan remained steadily up front, but as he approached lapped traffic with seven laps remaining, he had Price-Miller and Cisney in hot pursuit.

Price-Miller made his move with three laps remaining as he took the lead down the backstretch exiting turn two. Cisney followed suit to get by Halligan exiting turn four and both he and Price-Miller were nose to tail coming to the two-to-go signal.

Cisney used a slider through turn’s one and two to overtake Price Miller for the top spot, but Price-Miller repaid the favor in turn’s three and four to lead the white-flag lap by mere inches. Cisney tried the same move again in turn’s one and two and this time he had the momentum exiting tun two. Price- Miller made one last ditch effort to grab the top spot on the top of the track in the last two turns, but Cisney would not be denied as he took the checkered flag.

Mike Wagner, Justin Whittall, Freddie Rahmer, Shultz, and Borden rounded out the top ten. Whittall earned an additional $500 courtesy of Valley Supply as the night’s hard charger award winner after starting 14th on the grid, while 19th-place finisher Paulie Colagiovanni earned the $1000 J&S Classics Warrior Award via random draw. 12th-place finisher Austin Bishop also earned an additional $100 bonus via Zach Knepp via random draw as well.

“We didn’t take off like we’d like to, but I’m perfectly fine letting someone else set sail and being the chaser,” said Cisney. “I didn’t really want to let Parker get by me out there, but those guys got racing each other there and we were like a rabbit chasing the dog. We got hungry and here we are.”

Cisney also made sure to compliment the track promotional team and the Juniata County Agricultural Society, who announced earlier in the night an increase of the weekly purse at the track in 2023 for not only the winners, but the rest of the field as well.

“It’s such a testament to everyone involved with this place that they can do this, and it means a lot with how much everything has increased in regard to costs,” said Cisney. “It’s hard to afford milk and eggs anymore, so we need this money as racers. It takes a lot to do this, and I can’t thank the people and sponsors enough for giving us as drivers and teams these opportunities.”

For Price-Miller, who intends to follow the Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions tour in 2023, he felt like he let one get away.

“I knew we were good, and we got that last restart and once I started catching Jeff (Halligan) I knew I had to do something quick,” said Price-Miller. “I got by him and went back to the top and Dylan threw a bomb at me, and I didn’t expect him to be there. I just love coming to Port Royal and being here on Opening Day and despite a second, I’m happy to put on a show for these fans.”

Dillan Stake entered the 2023 racing season as the defending Limited Late Model track champion at the Port Royal Speedway. He backed up the impressive 2022 season in the Limited Late Model division with his first career Selinsgrove Ford Super Late Model victory Sunday during Opening Day presented by Packer’s Concessions.

The win, worth $4000, came over Ross Robinson, Rick Eckert, Hayes Mattern and Jeff Rine.

Stake started on the outside of row one next to Amanda Robinson, and he was able to take the top spot on the opening lap of the 25-lap feature event. Mattern, Ross Robinson, Amanda Robinson and Eckert rounded out the top five.

Eight starter Austin Berry was on the move early as he moved into fourth at the completion of lap three, while the Eckert climbed back into fifth after briefly dropping out of the top five on lap four.

Stake lead Mattern and Robinson at the 15 laps to go mark, but he was quickly approaching lapped traffic and had his hands full. Both Mattern and Robinson were closing fast, but the two cars battled it out over the next five laps and gave Stake some breathing room as he maneuvered the lappers coming to ten to go.

Mattern finally gave way to Robinson for the runner-up spot with three laps to go, but by then Stake had opened up his advantage to a sizeable amount. Eckert overtook Mattern for the final podium spot on the final circuit, but nobody had anything for Stake as he cruised to the victory and the checkered flag.

Amanda Robinson, Colton Flinner, Gary Stuhler, Gregg Satterlee and Berry rounded out the top ten. Satterlee earned the hard charger award and scored an additional $200 courtesy of Mike Cleck Paving & Sealcoating, Inc.. Chad Myers earned an additional $100 courtesy of Georges Used Cars via random draw after finishing 19th as well.

“This deal is a lot of hard work and it finally paid off with a win with the Super,” said Stake. “As soon as we ran the first lap, I knew we had a really good car and I just needed to keep my tires under me. This is my favorite car and it’s the same car we won all the Limited races with, and we just finally made the switch.”

For Robinson, he was happy with a runner-up finish after his initial weekend plans elsewhere were ruined with rain.

“We had a rough Speedweeks in Florida, so this second is kind of a relief,” said Robinson. “This is a brand-new car and we didn’t have to do too much to feel comfortable, so we can take this and learn from it.”

Williams Grove Season Opener Win List Full Of Standouts And Surprises

Opening Day Tradition Continues March 12

3/5/23

Mechanicsburg - Opening day at Williams Grove Speedway is a tradition that dates back to the maiden season in 1939 when The Flying Dutchman, Tommy Hinnershitz of Oley claimed the very first race held at the track.

And another chapter in Williams Grove lidlifter history is set to unfold this Sunday, March 12 at 2 pm when the 2023 season opener is spun off featuring the Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint cars and the first-ever appearance at the track by the wingless super sportsman.

Presented by Hoosier, gates for Opening Day 2023 will open at noon with the sprint cars racing for a $5,500 payday in a 25-lap main event.

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

A host of prominent and some not so well known names dot the opening day win list at Williams Grove Speedway.

Hinnershitz, a AAA East champion in his career, claimed a total of three openers.

Other top names of the 1940s and 1950s that scored the Williams Grove opener included Ted Horn, Jimmy Bryan, Johnny Mackison Sr. and more.

On his way to immortality for fans of the 1960s and 1970s, Leroy Felty scored the opener twice in his career, in 1961 and 1966.

A Texan destined for greatness by the name of AJ Foyt took the victory in 1964.

Another man on his way to racing immortality, Jan Opperman hit the local scene for his first of three Williams Grove opening day wins in 1970.

Other popular winners of the 1960s and 1970s included Kenny Weld, Dick Tobias, Kramer Williamson, Smokey Snellbaker, Ray Tilley and Bobby Allen.

The duo of Lynn Paxton and Keith Kauffman struck for a total of five lidlifter wins in the decade of the 1980s while a virtual unknown in sprint cars, Kevin Collins, upended the field in 1983.

The 1990s dawned with Kenny Adams scoring a victory before Don Kreitz Jr. and Fred Rahmer each took a pair of opener wins.

Brian Paulus closed the decade with what was perhaps considered an upset win before a youngster from Enumclaw, Washington, began the 2000s with an undisputed upset, coming at the hands of a pre-Nascar Kasey Kahne.

Greg Hodnett would etch his name on the historical first race win list twice during the 2000s while familiar names like Lance Dewease, Crish Eash, Kreitz and Rahmer would return along with a popular win for underdog Mike Erdley of Elizabethville.

Rahmer and Hodnett continued winning into the 2010s while first time checkers went to Danny Dietrich and Lucas Wolfe of Mechanicsburg.

By far, the upset of the decade of the 2010s came at the hands of New Oxford’s Gerard McIntyre Jr. in 2014.

California invader Carson Macedo took the victory for his first career oval win in 2020 and Freddie Rahmer scored his first-ever opener win in 2021.

Invader Justin Peck took the 2022 opener.

 

 

 

Stage Set For Williams Grove To Open Sunday

2023 season lidlifter gets underway at 2 pm, Gates open at Noon

3/5/23

Mechanicsburg – The 2023 Williams Grove Speedway season opener presented by Hoosier is scheduled for this Sunday, March 12 at 2 pm featuring the Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint cars.

The wingless super sportsman are also on the card.

The Williams Grove sprint cars will compete in a 25-lap, $5,500 to win main event.

For their part, the wingless sportsman will race for $1,000 to win in a 20-lap feature.

The show will be the first ever at the track for the sportsman running without a top wing.

After everyone remembers to set their clocks ahead early Sunday morning, gates for the show will open at Noon with warm-ups slated for 1:30.

Indiana’s Justin Peck scored the season opener at Williams Grove Speedway last year and has already been to victory lane in the area this season.

And the 24-year old Peck will likely be vying to back up his 2022 Opening Day win when gates open up for the new season on Sunday.

Of course defending track champion Danny Dietrich of Gettysburg will be in the Opening Day field already with two oval opener wins in his pocket.

Other previous opener winners in the field should be Lucas Wolfe, Freddie Rahmer and Lance Dewease.

A pair of heavy hitters at the track the last few seasons but still missing from Opening Day lore is both Brent Marks and Anthony Macri.

Together, the pair has notched a total of 12 wins at the track since 2020 but not one has been in Opening Day action.

Both will be in the field but will 2023 change their Opening Day fortunes?

Over the years, no driver has stood in Opening Day victory lane at Williams Grove more than the elder Fred Rahmer of Salfordville.

Rahmer took his first of six lidlifter wins in 1997 with his last coming in 2013.

Adult general admission for Sunday is $20 with youth ages 13 – 20 priced at just $10.

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

The first 2023 race under the lights at Williams Grove is then planned for Friday night, March 17.

On tap will be the World of Outlaws Sprint Cars as they invade for the circuit’s first show of the year in Central PA Outlaw Madness.

Last year, Williams Grove opened the season on March 18.

Abbottstown, PA (March 4, 2023) – Freddie Rahmer pulled the Eichelberger #8 into victory lane on Saturday afternoon with a smile on his face. After lining up deep in the field, Rahmer raced his way to the front and after a battle for the lead with Danny Dietrich late in the race, Freddie scored his second victory of the young season, “Good hard racing with Danny there we raced each other really good, that was pretty cool.”

There were three cautions and a red before the halfway point of the 30-lap feature, “There was a lot of yellows there and stuff happened and by lap 13 we were running 7th and I thought we could still run second or third here if we get into lapped cars and the cautions fell right,” Rahmer recalled in victory lane.

Dietrich was pacing the field and Alan Krimes was in second when Rahmer worked his way to third, “We were about even, the three of us there until about 10 or 12 to go and then we got to lapped traffic and Krimes peeled down right at the perfect time.”

Once he got by Krimes, Rahmer reeled in Dietrich as they worked through lapped traffic, “It was hard to get through lapped traffic and it was almost better to be second.”

Rahmer’s win on Saturday was his 26th at the track and paid $5,000 to win.

Alan Krimes and Danny Dietrich made up the front row for the start of Saturday afternoon’s 30-lap feature. Krimes led the field into turn 1 but Danny used the outside to take the lead out of turn 2 with Aaron Bollinger running third.

The first yellow came on lap 4 when Billy Dietrich came to a stop on the front stretch.

Danny, Krimes, Bollinger, Chad Trout and Tim Wagaman made up the top five for the restart. Chris Windom, making his debut in the Heffner Racing #27, was lined up sixth.

Danny had a solid restart and pulled away from Krimes quickly while Windom and Trey Hivner battled for sixth.

Devon Borden flipped in turn 4 bringing out the red flag on lap 6. There was no change to the top five for the restart.

Once again it did not take long for Danny to pull away from Krimes. Bollinger tried to make a move on Krimes for second in turns 1 and 2 but did not make the pass. Wagaman got by Trout for fourth. Macri followed and took fifth from Trout and then made quick work of Wagaman for fourth.

Macri and Bollinger got together in turn 4 as they were battling for third bringing out the caution on lap 11.

Freddie Rahmer went to the outside of brother Brandon to take sixth and then drove by Windom for fifth on the restart.

The final caution of the race came on lap 13 when Cameron Smith spun in turn 4.

Danny led Krimes, Wagaman, Trout and Freddie to the cone for the restart. Rahmer got by Trout and then Wagaman for third on the restart.

Danny found himself in lapped traffic on lap 19. Rahmer was closing in on Krimes and tried a slider in turn 2 as they caught the tail end of the field. Rahmer took second coming out of turn 2 and started to close in on Danny.

Freddie was getting a good run off of turn 2 using the high line as Danny was running the bottom. The two were nearly side by side at the line on lap 26. Freddie slid in front of Danny but Dietrich reclaimed the spot. Rahmer slid him again and took the lead on lap 28. Danny stuck with him and tried a slider to reclaim the lead in turns 3 and 4 with one lap to go.

Rahmer crossed the line just a half second ahead of Dietrich for the win. Krimes was third and Wagaman finished fourth. Trout completed the top five.

Duane Howard Triumphant in Modifieds Return to the Pigeon Hills

It had been over 10 years since the modifieds last visited Lincoln Speedway and on Saturday afternoon Duane Howard was triumphant in their return after a hard fought battle.

Mike Gular led the field into turn 1 with Billy Pauch Jr. on the inside and Louden Reimert in third. Pauch got by Reimert for second and a three car battle for third was underway between Reimert, Rick Laubach and Duane Howard.

Gular was pulling away from the field and Pauch was all by himself in second when the yellow came out on lap 8 when Mike Lisowski fell off the pace in turn 4.

Gular and Pauch lined up side by side for the double file restart. Gular, Pauch and Reimert were nearly three wide down the back stretch with Pauch taking the lead on lap 9. Reimert got under Gular for second coming out of turn 2.

Howard passed Gular for third but Gular got him back at the line to hold onto the spot on lap 11.

Gular got by Reimert to take second back on lap 12 using the high line. Gular was running alongside Pauch and took the lead back on lap 14. Howard caught Pauch and took second on lap 16. Howard then went to work reeling in Gular. Howard was all over Gular for the lead and made the pass coming out of turn 4 to take the top spot on lap 21.

Pauch and Reimert battled side by side for fourth with Reimert taking the spot. Howard was pulling away from the field as Laubach was working on Gular for second.

Howard got to the checkered flag 3.384 seconds ahead of Gular. Laubach crossed the line third and Reimert was fourth. Pauch held on to finish fifth.

Next Saturday, March 11, Lincoln Speedway is dark. We are back in action with the World of Outlaws Sprint Cars on Saturday, March 18. Racing starts at 6PM with pit gates opening at 2PM and grandstand gates opening at 4PM.

PORT ROYAL SPEEDWAY SET FOR 81ST ANNUAL OPENING DAY SUNDAY

March 1st, 2023

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway – PORT ROYAL, PA – (March 1, 2023)- After 135 long days without racing activity, the sounds of engines are set to return to the Juniata County air this Sunday, March 5th, as the Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Cars and the Selinsgrove Ford Super Late Models take to the track for the 81st Annual Port Royal Speedway Opening Day presented by Packer's Concessions, LLC..

In what has been a recent tradition, the Speedway will again utilize a Sunday opener where the Sprint Cars will compete for a $5000 winner’s share while the Super Late Models will race for a $4000 to-win prize.

Pit gates open at 11A.M and general admission gates open at Noon. Racing is set to kick off at 2 P.M. Adult admission is $25, while students are $10. Pit admission is $35.

Last year, Lance Dewease scored his fifth career Opening Day triumph over Mike Wagner, Justin Peck, Danny Dietrich and Logan Wagner.

Wagner enters 2023 as the series defending champion after scoring a record fifth consecutive track points championships last season. Wagner’s championship last season bested all-time winningest driver, Keith Kauffman, as the only driver to go five-in-a-row. Speaking of Kauffman, Dewease sits 8 back of the ‘Man from Mifflintown’ on the career wins list with 121 victories and will be looking to chip away at that total for his sixth career opening day trophy.

The last driver to triumph on opening day and go on to claim the season ending track points title was Todd Shaffer in 2008.

In Super Late Model competition, Colton Flinner scored the opening day triumph over Kyle Hardy, Gary Stuhler, Trever Feathers and Kyle Lee. Flinner went on to score the season ending points championship in a nail-biter that went down to the final turn of the season over Gary Stuhler, Chad Myers, Mike Lupfer and Jason Schmidt.

The Super Late Models have been a part of opening day festivities yearly since 2013 and Feathers joins Andy Haus and Jason Covert as drivers with two career triumphs in the event. Other drivers to claim victory in the division on opening day are Tim Wilson, Mike Lupfer and Rine. Rine turned his triumph into a track championship in 2018.

For fans choosing to watch from home, racing activities will again be available via PPV streaming on FloRacing and information regarding purchase can be found at www.floracing.com.

Fans in attendance will also receive 2023 magnet schedules at the front gate courtesy of Juniata Beverage - Tyson Hill.

JUSTIN PECK BESTS THE PA POSSE IN ICE BREAKER FINALE

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Saturday, March 4, 2023 (3PM) MARCH MODIFIED MADNESS: 410 Sprints [$5,000 to win] + Modifieds [$3,000 to win]

Saturday, March 25, 2023 (6PM) 410 Sprints + Central PA Legends

Abbottstown, PA (February 26, 2023) – After finishing one spot shy of victory lane on Thursday night’s season opener, Justin Peck scored his first win of the 2023 season on Sunday afternoon at the Ice Breaker finale. The track conditions for Sunday’s day race were drastically different from Thursday night, “It was pretty technical,” was Peck’s assessment of the track Sunday, “I kept moving the wing back and the top slowed down finally.”

When asked about the final restart of the race when Peck had Anthony Macri and Brent Marks lined up behind him he said, “I tried not to think about it.”

Sunday’s win was Peck’s fourth at Lincoln which is impressive when you look at the fact that his first win at the track was in 2021 and he only races a very limited number of times at the track each year. Peck took home $6,000 for his win on Sunday thanks to Tyson Fence Co.

Brandon Rahmer and Dylan Norris made up the front row for the Ice Breaker finale on a sunny Sunday afternoon. Rahmer led the field into turn 1 with Norris using the top to take the lead down the back stretch. Norris crossed the line ahead of Rahmer but the caution came out before the lap was scored complete. Chase Dietz and Riley Emig were stopped in turn 4.

The field lined up for a complete restart and this time Rahmer slid up in front of Norris and led lap 1. Justin Peck moved up to third and tried to take second from Norris in turn 2 but Norris reclaimed the runner up spot at the line.

Anthony Macri was watching the battle between Norris and Peck from fourth while trying to hold off Brent Marks. Marks got by Macri for fourth as Peck was closing in on Norris.

The yellow flag flew on lap 6 when Tim Wagaman fell off the pace in turns 1 and 2.

Brandon paced the field ahead of Norris, Peck, Marks and Macri for the restart.

Peck was on Norris’ bumper and nearly took second in turns 3 and 4 on the restart but Norris held the spot. Peck tried again for second and took it on lap 8 at the line.

Macri was all over Marks for fourth and took the spot in turn 2. Peck was closing in on Brandon and went to his inside as they drove into turn 3 and took the lead on lap 14.

Macri tried a slider on Norris for third and the two made contact in turn 2 with Macri taking the spot. Marks followed, sending Norris back to sixth.

Lap 18 saw Macri get by Brandon for second. Marks and Devon Borden were battling for third with 10 laps to go.

Peck made contact with lapped car turn 2 on lap 23 but kept going and held onto the lead.

Matt Campbell rode the wall in turn 2 and tried to keep going but the car was broken and he came to a stop on the back stretch bringing out the caution on lap 27.

Peck, Macri, Marks, Borden and Danny Dietrich made up the top five for the restart with three laps to go.

Marks went low to take the inside line and got by Macri for second on the restart. Borden also got by Macri to take third.

Peck won his fourth Lincoln feature by .444 seconds over Marks. Borden was third and Danny Dietrich crossed the line fourth. Macri completed the top five.

Next Saturday, March 4, Lincoln Speedway is back in action with “Modified Madness” featuring the Gene Latta Ford 410 Sprint Cars racing for $5,000 to win and modifieds. Racing starts at 3PM with pit gates opening at 12:30PM and grandstand gates opening at 1PM.

Williams Grove Champion Dietrich Ready For 2023 Season

Oval opener is March 12

2/26/23

Mechanicsburg – When Gettysburg’s Danny Dietrich embarked on his 2022 racing season, the schedule he had set out would find him missing a few shows at Williams Grove Speedway during the year.

And miss a few he did.

But the 2022 Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint car track title still went home with him and No. 48 car owner Gary Kauffman.

The track title was the second of Dietrich’s career at age 34 and he raced all the way through the final laps of the year to put his name on the dotted line.

Dietrich entered the mid-October World of Outlaws National Open at Williams Grove some 185 points out of the lead and would march from 19th starting spot to finish eighth and score a 10-point margin to steal the title from Freddie Rahmer.

Still, Dietrich says it wasn’t a surprise to him that the team took the title.

“When it got down to the end of the season, to crunch time, I knew that we could do it,” he says.

“It’s been a long time since we had to punch our way into an outlaw show with a provisional and we've always found a way to get into the show and that’s been a key ingredient to our winning championships over the years.”

So now the 2023 season awaits.

Opening day at Williams Grove is slated for Sunday afternoon, March 12 at 2 pm.

Dietrich and Kauffman are paired again for their 14th season together as they make an assault on Williams Grove and other area ovals.

And Dietrich says while his plans for the new season are much like last year, there is a bit of a difference.

“The only time it looks like we’re gonna’ be away from Williams Grove this year will be Ohio speedweek . Our plan to miss Williams Grove shows this year is less than it has been in years’ past,” he says.

Plus, Dietrich and Kauffman have added former Michael Barshinger crewman Chad Lloyd to the fold.

We brought on Chad to help with tires and drive the truck and trailer which will take a little pressure off of (mechanic) Jake (Sgrignoli) and I.”

Dietrich insists that just like he began last year, he will not race anywhere for points in 2023.

“If we get ourselves in a situation where it doesn’t make sense to go out for a B Main, we won’t. And at the end of the year if you win races, the points take care of themselves,” he says.

The Kauffman team won three times at Williams Grove last year and Dietrich now sits in sole possession of 14th on the oval all time win list with 28.

Dietrich is a two-time opening day winner at Williams Grove Speedway with wins in 2015 and 2012 to his credit.

Last year, Williams Grove opened the season on March 18 when invader Justin Peck scored the sprint car win while Gregg Satterlee rode to victory in super late models.

LINCOLN SPEEDWAY OPENS SEASON EARLY WITH STELLAR CROWD; FREDDIE RAHMER WINS SECOND CONSECUTIVE ICE BREAKER

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Sunday, February 26, 2023 (3PM) 410 Sprints [$6,000 to win]

Saturday, March 4, 2023 (3PM) MARCH MODIFIED MADNESS: 410 Sprints [$5,000 to win] + Modifieds [$3,000 to win]

Saturday, March 18, 2023 (6PM) World of Outlaws Sprint Cars

Abbottstown, PA (February 23, 2023) – Five days ago Lincoln Speedway management took a look at the forecast for the scheduled Ice Breaker weekend and made the decision to take a chance on moving the season opener to Thursday night instead of the scheduled Saturday afternoon. Thursday had a forecast high temperature of 75 degrees and Saturday looked like a chance of snow with a high in the 30s. The risk paid off as Lincoln opened the 2023 season to a packed race track full of fans.

Freddie Rahmer inherited the lead on lap 3 and impressively worked his way through lapped traffic to score his second consecutive Ice Breaker victory, “Really happy to get this out of the way. We did it last year and just had an ok year, and we’re going to do whatever it takes this year to step it up all around.”

As Rahmer worked through lapped traffic he had Danny Dietrich and Justin Peck hot on his heels, “We knew before the start of the race that lapped traffic would be a big deal,” Rahmer shared in victory lane and continued, “We were really good the first half and for a while I could sneak in the bottom through the lapped cars and then that went away.”

The temperatures were still in the mid to high 60s in victory lane and Rahmer shared, “Thankful Lincoln put this on tonight it feels like its May or June, it’s pretty cool.”

After hot laps, Wayne Harper shared his famous line to start the season, “All is right in the world!” With sprint car racing back in Central PA for 2023, Tyler Ross and Freddie Rahmer shared the front row for the start of the first feature of the year. Ross took the lead and went high into turn 1 with Rahmer opting for the bottom line in the turns.

Rahmer was keeping pace with Ross and despite doing a wheelie on the front stretch on lap 2, Ross held the lead. Ross and Rahmer were wheel to wheel at the line on lap 3 with Ross holding onto the top spot by inches. Rahmer took the lead in turn 1 and Ross spun in turn 2 in an attempt to reclaim first. Ross’ spin brought out the first and only caution of the night.

Rahmer led Brent Marks, Kyle Moody, Danny Dietrich and Justin Peck on the restart.

Rahmer went high in turn 1 and pulled away form Marks. Dietrich looked to the outside of Moody as the two raced for third with Dietrich taking the spot at the line. Peck followed and worked on Moody to take fourth on lap 6.

Rahmer entered lapped traffic on lap 8 as the lapped car of Trey Hivner got out of shape in front of him. Rahmer got by Hivner unscathed.

Peck and Marks raced side by side down the back stretch as they worked through lapped traffic. Dietrich got up to second and was using lapped cars to reel in Rahmer. Peck moved up to third and was closing in on the leaders.

Peck was nearly side by side with Danny for second on lap 15 at the line. Peck made the pass for second after making slight contact in turn 4 with Dietrich.

With 10 laps to go Rahmer had two lapped cars between him and Peck. Peck was doing everything he could to close in on Rahmer as the lapped counted down, but Rahmer was too good in lapped traffic.

Rahmer crossed the line 1.391 seconds ahead of Peck. Dietrich was third after holding off a late charge by Devon Borden who finished fourth. Matt Campbell completed the top five.

This Sunday, February 26, Lincoln Speedway is back in action with the Gene Latta Ford 410 Sprint Cars racing for $6,000 to win courtesy of Tyson Fence Co.. Racing starts at 3PM with pit gates opening at 12:30PM and grandstand gates opening at 1PM.

New Sponsors Come On Board at BAPS Motor Speedway in 2023

YORK HAVEN, Pa.: Returning sponsors and new editions have helped strengthen the commitment to divisions at BAPS Motor Speedway in 2023.

Meyer’s RV has joined the fold as the new title sponsor of the Super Sportsman division. The Super Sportsman Tour will also be represented by first-time title sponsor Lehman Towing.

A host of title sponsors have returned for the core divisions at the York Haven facility. Creekside Auto Sales is back for a sixth year to sponsor the Late Model division, and Superior Homes makes it seven years straight as the headliner for the Extreme Stocks.

Miller’s Racing Parts inked a deal to become the Street Stock title sponsor. The 602 Crate Sportsman division has become a staple at the speedway with FXG Sign and Label and Dickey's Barbecue returning. Denk Electric will be a part of the 410 Sprint Car Series.

“We are very grateful for our returning sponsors and the new companies that have come aboard in 2023,” BAPS Motor Speedway General Manager Kolten Gouse said. “Our goal is to give as much value as we can to our sponsors and judging by our ability to keep sponsors and sign new ones, we are doing a good job of that.

“Racing is expensive for not only the teams, but the speedways. Having strong divisions and quality sponsors is critical to the success of BAPS Motor Speedway, and we appreciate everyone who is involved.”

BAPS Announces 2023 410 Sprint Car Schedule

YORK HAVEN, Pa.: There is a different look and feel to the 410 Sprint Car schedule at BAPS Motor Speedway in 2023.

Six weeks ago, the management team at the speedway announced that the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series would invade the York Haven, Pa., facility for the first time in 30 years. But that was only part of the equation.

Speedway owner Scott Gobrecht and General Manager Kolten Gouse wanted to up the ante and revamped the schedule, adding 10 more 410 Sprint Car dates. The 11-race series is the biggest and most lucrative for the 410 Sprint Car division at the speedway since Gobrecht took over before the 2016 season.

“We have been trying to get a World of Outlaws date for a couple of years,” Gouse said. “Once that happened, it helped us gain national attention. Then, we went to work on building a schedule that best highlights the division and the racing at BAPS Motor Speedway.

“This is our biggest 410 schedule to date as far as number of races and money paid out. We are proud of what we came up with and look forward to hosting some of the best drivers in the country more this season.”

The World of Outlaws invade the speedway on July 19 for the Bricker’s Bash presented by Selinsgrove Ford. It will pay $10,000 to the winner and feature some of the best Sprint Car drivers in the world.

Gobrecht and Gouse also added more money to the Selinsgrove Ford Kevin Gobrecht Classic. The event was moved from the first weekend in May to September 23 and will pay a hefty $10,000 to the winner.

“September is an important time in central Pennsylvania, and we wanted to be a part of Central Pa. Month of Money,” Gouse said. “There are a lot of high-paying events during that stretch, and the Kevin Gobrecht Classic has become one of our prestigious events. So, it’s nice to be a part of that.”

Gobrecht and Gouse also added a date on March 26 to kick off the 410 Sprint Car season at the speedway. The 358 Sprints will also be a part of ACME Companies March Sprint Madness in what will be their first race in central Pennsylvania this season.

Pairing the Modifieds with the 410 Sprint division has become a popular combination at the speedway. The stars from Grandview, Big Diamond, and other regions in the Northeast join the Sprint Cars three times this season, including the season-ending Final Showdown on November 11. The Modifieds will also highlight the season opener at the speedway on March 18.

“The Modifieds have become a popular division at BAPS Motor Speedway,” Gouse said. “Putting the Modifieds and 410 Sprints on the same card combines the two premier divisions in the East.”

Below is the entire 11-race 410 Sprint Car schedule. For more information on BAPS Motor Speedway, head over to www.bapsmotorspeedway.com.

2023 Lincoln Speedway Schedule is Set; Jam Packed with New and Exciting Events

 

Abbottstown, PA (December 23, 2022) – The 2023 season schedule for Pennsylvania’s Lincoln Speedway is highlighted by new and exciting changes starting with the Ice Breaker Weekend on February 25 and 26. This is the first time the official kick-off of sprint car racing in Central PA will be held as a two-day event.

 

Another first for the track is the two-day Dirt Classic weekend scheduled for September 2 and 3 with the “Kickoff to the Classic” on Saturday and “Dirt Classic X” on Sunday.

 

The recently announced World of Outlaws visit in March means that the premier sprint car touring series will be making two appearances in 2023 with the first coming on Saturday, March 18. The “Gettysburg Clash” returns on Wednesday, May 10.

 

Another exciting addition to the schedule this year is the return of modifieds to Lincoln Speedway. The popular division makes their first appearance in the pigeon hills since 2012 on March 4 along with the 410 sprint cars.

 

Lincoln Speedway will host 15 different divisions, with 30 dates for the 410 sprints and 16 dates for the 358 sprints. The super late models will make three appearances including the return of “Appalachian Mountain Speedweek” on June 17.

 

The 600 wingless micros will be a part of the racing action on July 1 along with the Central PA Legends, Limited Stocks and Xcel modifieds.

 

Track management has listened to the racers and the fans and have moved the start times up for most events. The mid-summer shows are scheduled for 7PM instead of 7:30PM. In addition to the earlier start times, the promoters have scheduled more two division shows after considering feedback from last year’s schedule.

 

Along with the new additions to the schedule, many familiar and popular dates will be back for 2023. The 20th Annual “Weldon Sterner Memorial” is slated for May 20. “Fallen Firefighters Night” is slated for May 6. Lincoln will host two PA Speedweek shows with the 24th Annual “Kevin Gobrecht Memorial” paying $10,092 to win on June 24. The $7,300 to win “Kramer Klash” is back on August 26.

Also back in 2023 are the Bob Leiby Memorial on May 27, Steve Smith Tribute Race on June 3, Dean’s Auto Plaza Night on July 15, DCS School of Driving Night on August 5 and the Barry Skelly Memorial on August 19. The season will conclude with the Brian Montieth Classic on Saturday, October 14.

 

In addition, there will be special shows featuring kids “Big Wheel” racing, and several auto racing “club” nights. The entire 2023 schedule is available online at www.lincolnspeedway.com/schedule and at the end of this release.

 

Located in Abbottstown, PA, the 3/8th-mile high-banked clay oval has been a staple in professional auto racing for 70 years. The Pigeon Hills oval is one of several famed Central Pennsylvania race tracks which represent the toughest, most competitive weekly sprint car racing in the nation. A family fun night to be had by all who visit the famed Lincoln Speedway!

BLOOMSBURG FAIR RACEWAY, BLOOMSBURG, PA

WEBSITE: https://racing.bloomsburgfair.com/

COMING EVENTS: Jan. 20 & 21 Pioneer Pole Buildings Motorsports Racecar & Trade Show, Oaks, Pa.

April 13 Open practice all divisions 6:30 pm – 9:30 pm

April 20 @ 6:00 pm Opening Night

Top USAC All-Pro SpeedSTR drivers to headline Bloomsburg Fair Raceway in ’23…Rich Tobias joins promotion team

(BLOOMSBURG 12-14-22): The 2023 season at the Bloomsburg Fair Raceway is taking shape and when the green flag drops on April 20 to begin the third year of racing located inside the historic Bloomsburg Fairgrounds, fans will get their first taste of watching modern day cowboys such as “The Wheel Master General” Timmy Buckwalter, “The Kid’s Kid” Billy Pauch Jr., and Briggs Danner as they go slinging through the corners and lashing their way down the shoots against a bevy of other star-studded wheelmen over the spring and summer competing in the headline USAC All-Pro SpeedSTRs.

Buckwalter, Pauch and Danner all know their way to Victory Lane at the 3/8-mile oval and they’ll be looking to add more stops there this season but indeed will have their hands full in the pursuit of additional checkered flags as they face off race against the amazing competition within the SpeedSTR ranks.

The SpeedSTRs division will be joined regularly by the Crate 602 Modifieds, 4-Cylinder FWD Stocks run under SCRDA rules and Slingshots.

“It’s part of working to grow on a multi-year plan to present good, quality racing and conduct it within a reasonable time frame. With this regular line-up plus at times bringing in other touring groups we’re looking at a nice diversified program to offer our fans,” said Rich Tobias, who has come onboard for the 2023 season as a member of the operations team.

Tobias is part of the highly touted promoting group that oversees the Wednesday evening shows at Championship Energy Action Track USA in Kutztown. He’s been tapped to bring his talents to Bloomsburg and will be working with Steve O’Neal in a combined role as Race Organizers on behalf of the Fair Board.

“Bloomsburg is an awesome facility and these divisions will compliment this awesome facility. We’re going to be mimicking the way we do things at Action Track which works each week with up to at times 120 cars and there’s no reason that along those same lines we’ll make it work here at Bloomsburg too,” said Tobias.

“We’re already looking at adding fresh clay that will enhance the banking contour. We need to give the racers a good track to compete on and keep it that way for all classes during the night. We’re in the business of entertaining and that’s the main focus, to present good, family fun entertainment value to our fans.”

The 2023 schedule of events are currently in the final stages. A pre-season practice night is slated for Thursday, April 13 and will be open to any and all classes that expect to compete this season.

The choice to stick with Thursday evening was a group decision based on working with other area tracks and touring groups in an effort to not be in direct competition for the same night.

“Thursday will be the new norm for Bloomsburg. That’s the night we’ll be doing our racing which we feel will be the best night for everyone. The one thing we don’t want to do is conflict with other tracks because it’s important that we show our support to them and in doing so we hope that the fans and racers return the same to Bloomsburg,” added Tobias.

One week following the open practice, the season official gets underway on April 20. For the most part events will be held twice each month and conclude during the 168th Bloomsburg Fair.

Tobias also noted that additional groups will also see action and is confirming dates that will be favorable for all parties.

“We’re in the process of firming up things and will have the complete schedule out in very short order. I’m confident everyone will like what we have to offer,” said Tobias.

The track will mandate mufflers for any cars that race. A 6:00 pm start time will be in place as well. More details are forthcoming.

Statement Regarding "The Night Before" & Future Race Procedures at BAPS Statement Regarding "The Night Before" & Future Race Procedures at BAPS

YORK HAVEN, Pa.: The management team at BAPS Motor Speedway is committed to making things better for competitors through transparency and action.

During Friday’s The Night Before program at the speedway, Danny Dietrich did a 360 spin on Lap 28 of the 410 Sprint Car feature and kept going. He was given the second starting position on the restart, when he should have been fourth.

After reviewing procedures and a tape of the incident, the decision was made to get rid of the blend rule, effective immediately. If a driver spins and brings out the caution, the yellow will be thrown, and he or she will tag the rear. The new rule will be in place for the November 12 Final Showdown at the speedway.

“In an effort to be transparent about the situation, we admit there was an error in instituting the blend rule for that situation,” BAPS Motor Speedway General Manager Kolten Gouse said. “To avoid any problems in the future, we decided to take that rule out altogether.

“The blend rule has become a judgement call in this sport. We feel it’s important to make sure our officials and competitors have a clear understanding of a rule so there are no questions or concerns during the event.”

A Monday meeting at the speedway also led to another rule change that will be implemented for the Final Showdown on November 12.

In the past, double-file restarts have been used throughout the main events. Moving forward, double-file alignments will be used for restarts up until the last 10 laps. If a caution is thrown in the last 10 laps, the field will use a single-file restart format.

“After reviewing data, we decided a compromise was in order for double-file restarts,” Gouse said. “We are committed to making the best possible decisions for our competitors, and sometimes you have to evaluate and make changes to achieve that.”

 

 

Dietrich Races To Williams Grove Point Lead And Title In Season-Ending National Open
Gettysburg driver notches second career track crown, Special awards announced

10/23/22

Mechanicsburg – Danny Dietirch of Gettysburg capped off his 2022 sprint car campaign at Williams Grove Speedway on Saturday night by claiming his second career Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint car track title with a hard fought eighth place finish in the season-ending National Open.

The title is also a second for car owner Gary Kauffman, having taking the title with Dietrich as well in 2019.

The title chase came right down to the wire in Saturday’s National Open as Dietrich entered the event some 185 points behind in the standings.

After starting 19th in the field Dietrich raced his way forward to ninth, placing himself in a tie with Freddie Rahmer for the point lead, before gaining one more spot which ended up serving him with a 10-point advantage to claim the prestigious crown.

Dietrich picked up three wins at the oval during the season including an impressive sweep of the Jack Gunn Memorial twin 20s sanctioned by the All Stars in late August.

Aside from the victories, among his other top results were a trio of seconds, four third-place finishes and a pair of fifths.

In total, Dietrich raced to 15 top-ten finishes on the year at Williams Grove while competing in 20 of the 24 main events staged.

Dietrich now joins a list of other oval two-time track champions including Freddie Rahmer, Jimmy Nace, Keith Kauffman, Smokey Snellbaker, Kramer Williamson, Johnny Mackison Sr. and a few others.

Special awards for the 2022 season within the 410 sprint ranks were also recently announced.

Earning Rookie of the Year honors was Austin Bishop, who ended up 21st in season points.

Lucas Wolfe earned the Sportsmanship Award.

And Dylan Norris was voted Most Improved Driver of the 2022 season by virtue of earning his first oval win early in the year before ending up an impressive third in season points.

Lance Dewease was crowned the 2022 Hoosier Diamond Series titlist in late September.

The title is the fifth of Dewease’s career having taken three alone for current car owner Don Kreitz Jr. while it was a fifth overall for Kreitz as well including a pair he scored while driving his own mount.

Dewease Leads Posse Podium Sweep To Score Outlaws 75K Williams Grove National Open

Danny Dietrich Pulls Out 2022 Track Title With Run From 19th

10/22/22

Mechanicsburg – Lance Dewease of Fayetteville led a Pennsylvania Posse podium sweep of the World of Outlaws sprint cars series to claim the Diamond Anniversary Champion Racing Oil National Open at Williams Grove Speedway on Saturday night.

The $75,000, flag to flag score by Dewease was the fifth National Open title of his career at the track and his 111th overall victory there. It was also his fifth win in a row at the oval to close out the season.

In the race within the race, to be named the 2022 Lawrence Chevrolet 410 Sprint Car track titlist, Danny Dietrich pulled off the upset of Freddie Rahmer.

Dietrich claimed his second track crown by racing from 19th starting spot to finish eighth and win the title by a mere 10 markers after entering the event 185 points out of the lead.

Dewease started the 40-lap, 20-mile National Open on the pole and would end up leading every circuit but his performance was not flawless.

Just five laps of the race were in the book when the first caution flag appeared for a broken rear axle on outlaws point leader Brad Sweet’s machine.

The result was a DNF for Sweet and a dramatic loss of points for the defending tour champion with just one final weekend of racing to go for the series.

The caution gave Dewease clear track as traffic was looming before the yellow flag.

By lap 10 Dewease had a one second lead over Brent Marks however with traffic again looming, Marks was able to pull up on the leader’s tail tank and the pair crossed the line on lap 13 nose to tail with Dewease’s front end hiked up in the air.

Marks then stuck close to the leader, dogging him through traffic while third runner David Gravel made strides at running the pair down.

Dewease saw a .540 second advantage evaporate on lap 25 when the field was stopped for refueling with Gravel, Spencer Bayston and James McFadden restarting in the top five.

The leader seemed to turn up the wick when action resumed, producing a 1.2 second lead over Marks as lap 26 was scored but his pace was soon slowed again, on lap 28 for a stopped Daryn Pittman.

The return to action saw Marks make his move for the win when he drove to the leader’s inside as the pair raced into the first turn.

And Marks made his move stick as he took the lead on the backstretch, leaving Dewease to scrap for second with newcomer Anthony Macri who got by Spencer Bayston for third on the previous restart.

However, Dewease got a reprieve in the form of a red flag before the lap could be officially scored as the cars of TJ Stutts, Brock Zearfoss and Gio Scelzi crashed in the third and fourth turns.

The stoppage negated the Marks move and put Dewease back at the point of the field.

Dewease kept Marks at Bay when the field got back underway, racing through the middle of the turns and with 10 laps to go his advantage was again 1.1 seconds when another yellow flag bunched the field, this time thanks to a Logan Schuchart/Cory Eliason tangle on the frontstretch.

The final 10 laps of the race went non-stop but they were full of action.

Marks took another shot at stealing the lead on lap 32 as he bolted under Dewease in turns three and four only to see the leader pinch him off from completing the move.

In the meantime, Danny Dietrich was racing his heart out for the track title, making his way into eighth and sole possession of the crown instead of ninth that would have found him declared co-champion with Rahmer who had failed to qualify.

But then James McFadden passed Dietrich back for eighth, forcing Dietrich to again rally and reclaim the coveted position.

With three laps to go, Macri went around Marks for the second spot and appeared poised to make a run at the win but Marks was up to the challenge.

A lap later Macri again pulled off a move but Marks again thwarted the effort and Macri ended up hopping the cushion in turn four before nearly spinning out.

All of this gave Dewease clear sailing to the prestigious victory by .792 seconds.

Marks crossed the finish line second followed by Macri, completing a crowd pleasing one-two-three podium sweep of the spot spots by track regulars.

Bayston was fourth with Gravel ending up in fifth spot.

Sixth through 10th went to Justin Peck, Jacob Allen, Dietrich, defending Open champion Carson Macedo and McFadden.

The National Open win was the third of car owner Donnie Kreitz’s career.

Kreitz scored Open laurels in 1993 as an owner/driver before Dewease also gave him an Open championship in 2018.

For Dewease, the Open title was a fifth as driver having taken previous Opens in 1996, 2001, 2002 and in 2018 for car owners Walt Dyer, Joe Harz, Al Hamilton and Kreitz, respectively.

Heats went to Sheldon Haudenschild, Dewease, Marks and Allen.

Lucas Wolfe won the C Main and six-time Open winner Donny Schatz scored the B Main.

Dewease won the dash and earned the pole for the feature.

Haudenschild set fast time over the field of 44 cars with a lap of 16.481 seconds in time trials.

October 22 Running Of Williams Grove National Open Ties For Seventh Latest In History

10/16/22

Mechanicsburg – When Williams Grove Speedway cranks up the Diamond Anniversary, 75K to win, Champion Racing Oil National Open on Saturday, October 22, it will spin off the fall classic as the seventh latest running of the event in its 60-year history.

For sure this year’s make-up Champion Racing Oil National Open sanctioned by the World of Outlaws will mark the latest running of the event in nearly 25 years.

Billy Pauch won an unsanctioned National Open back on October 24, 1998.

But running the biggest event in the East so late in the season is a rarity.

The latest-ever running of the National Open took place back on November 7, 1971 when Kenny Weld took the win over Johnny Grum.

October 29, 1967 saw Bobbie Adamson score the victory and a year later, on October 27, it was Adamson again taking the big win.

In 1969, an upset win by Selinsgrove driver Gene Varner took place on October 26.

The dawn of the 1970s saw the race contested on October 25 when the aforementioned Grum scored the win.

Next in line is the Pauch victory on October 24, 1998.

And in what will move into a tie for the seventh latest Open race in history when the 2022 version is completed, the National Open saw Weld again take the checkers, this time on October 22, 1972.

So in keeping with history, since an average 25-year interval has developed between the two most recent late-October National Opens, Williams Grove drivers and fans should not again expect the fateful occurrence for another quarter century.

Mark your calendars now.

The year will be 2047!

Abbottstown, PA (October 15, 2022) – Danny Dietrich scored his sixth win of the season and the 61st win of his career at Lincoln on Saturday night at the Dean’s Auto Plaza Night of Champions. Dietrich lined up third for the feature and after battling Buddy Kofoid, took over the lead on lap 12, “Buddy’s not easy to beat, he’s going to sliders, he’s got that midget mentality where they like to slide or die.”

The 30-lap feature had three red flags that led to an open red with 8 laps to go. When asked if he made any changes under the red Dietrich responded with, “a lot.”

Danny closed out the season with a $5,000 win thanks to Dean’s Auto Plaza, “This thing was just so much fun to drive. Its just fun to get this thing in victory lane and finish off the season with a win.”

Lucas Wolfe and Buddy Kofoid shared the front row for the drop of the green flag with Wolfe leading the field into turn 1. Kofoid was all over Wolfe coming out of turn 2 and got a run on Lucas to lead lap 1. Dietrich passed Wolfe for second on lap 2.

Matt Campbell and Kyle Moody raced side by side for fourth with Campbell taking the spot on lap 3. Moody took fourth back on lap 4 with the two continuing to battle for position. Campbell once again took it back on lap 7.

The yellow flag flew on lap 8 for Glenndon Forsythe just as Kofoid had reached lapped traffic.

The top five for the restart were Kofoid, Dietrich, Wolfe, Campbell and Moody.

Dietrich went to the top on the restart and nearly got a run on Kofoid but did not make the pass. Campbell got by Wolfe for third.

The red flag came out on lap 9 for Brandon Rahmer who got upside down in turns 3 and 4.

Dietrich, Kofoid, Campbell, Wolfe and Rahmer led the field on the restart. Lucas got by Campbell to reclaim third. Rahmer followed and also passed Wolfe to take the third spot, sending Campbell back to fifth.

Just as Dietrich caught the tail end of the field on lap 22, Riley Emig got upside down in turns 3 and 4 bringing out the third red flag of the race.

After an open red for the teams Dietrich led Kofoid, Rahmer, Wolfe and Moody on the restart. Kofoid went low on the restart and tried a slider with no luck. Wolfe passed Rahmer for third. Kofoid tried yet another slider unsuccessfully allowing Dietrich to pull away.

Lapped traffic would not come into play before the checkered flag for the leaders. Dietrich crossed the line .730 seconds ahead of Kofoid. Wolfe finished third and the 2022 Track Champion, Freddie Rahmer, was fourth. Moody completed the top five.

Justin Whittall Breaks Through for First Port Royal Victory in Final 410 Sprint Car Start of the Season

By Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, PA- (October 15, 2022)- In a year filled with near misses and continued growth as a driver, Justin Whittall saved the best for last as he picked up his first career Port Royal Speedway victory Friday night during the final Weikert's Livestock 410 Sprint Car event of the season.

The victory came over a hard charging Dylan Cisney and Lucas Wolfe and was worth $6000 as it served as the make-up for the cancelled Labor Day Classic event.

Whittall lined up from the front row for the 25-lap A-main event alongside of Devon Borden and it was Whittall jumping to the top of the Speedway to grab the opening lead over Cisney, Borden, Wolfe and Buddy Kofoid.

Eighth-place starter Freddie Rahmer was on the move early as he moved into sixth on lap three.

However, Whittall was quickly distancing himself from the rest of the field as he stretched his advantage to more than two seconds within five laps. One lap later the New Jersey native hit lapped traffic, while the rest of the field hoped to track him down.

With 15 laps remaining, Cisney was starting to cut into Whittall's lead, but four laps later Whittall was gain stretching the lead as he approached a 3.0 second advantage with 11 to go.

Whittall had a scare one lap later when Austin Bishop, Jeff Halligan and Mike Water got turned around right in front of him and the youngster was forced to make an acrobatic maneuver to avoid contact and kept his car clean with 10 laps remaining.

While Whittall remained steady up front, it was Wolfe on the move after the restart as hehe went two four one to briefly move from fourth to second. Cisney took the runner-up spot back on the following lap.

Borden, who was running fourth at the time, saw his night come to an end with five laps remaining after a mechanical failure caused him to spin entering turn three to bring out the caution again.

Cisney tried a slider on Whittall after the return to green, but Whittall was not to be denied off the top of the Speedway. Rahmer got by Wolfe for the final podium spot one lap later, but Wolfe came powering back by on the following lap to regain the spot.

As Cisney hoped for a miracle over the final three laps, Whittall cruised home to the victory. Rahmer and Logan Wagner completed the top five followed by Kofoid, Danny Dietrich, Walter, Mike Wagner and Paulie Colagiovanni.

Danny Varin finished 12th and advanced six positions to earn the $500 Valley Supply Hard Charger Award.

Sprint Car Feature Results (25 laps): 1. Justin Whittall. 2. Dylan Cisney 3. Lucas Wolfe. 4. Freddie Rahmer. 5. Logan Wagner. 6. Buddy Kofoid. 7. Danny Dietrich. 8. Michael Walter II. 9.

Locke Claims Third 358 Sprint Title In A Row At Williams Grove

Carlisle driver becomes third driver in history to notch division hat trick

10/9/22

Mechanicsburg – Carlisle’s Derek Locke wrapped up his third Williams Grove Speedway 358 sprint track title in a row on September 23 in the final race of the year for the 358s at the historic oval.

That finish along with wins on May 20, July 15 and September 2 plus a sixth on June 10 and a third on June 24 netted Locke the season crown.

Locke becomes just the third driver in history at Williams Grove to win three 358 sprint titles in a row, joining Pat Cannon, 2010 - 2012 and Kevin Nouse from 2016 – 2018.

No drivers own more 358 sprint track titles than Cannon or Nouse who each have five to their credit. Cory Haas is a four-time champion

Division titlist Locke started out the 2022 season riding a nine race, two season win streak that he stretched to 10 in a row and three seasons before it came to an end on June 10, 2022.

Locke’s father Howie scored the 358 sprint track title at Williams Grove in 1992.

Finishing second through fifth in the HJ Towing & Recovery 358 sprint point standings for the season was Doug Hammaker, Steve Owings, Tyler Brehm and Kody Hartlaub.

Hartlaub of Hanover was voted the 2022 Rookie of the Year in the division.

Sixth through 10th in the final standings were Frankie Herr, Chad Criswell, Cody Fletcher, Matt Findley and Chris Frank.

Saturday & Sunday, February 25-26, 2023 ICE BREAKER WEEKEND

Abbottstown, PA (October 8, 2022) – The Inaugural Lazer Late Model Clash went to Gregg Satterlee on Saturday night. It was Satterlee’s first win at the Abbottstown oval. Earlier in the evening Satterlee set a new one-lap track record during time trials of 15.185 seconds. The previous record of 15.583 was held by Bryan Bernheisel.

Satterlee and Rick Eckert shared the front row for the start of the 35-lap feature. Satterlee and Eckert were wheel to wheel at the flag stand with Eckert taking the advantage down the back stretch to lead lap 1. Satterlee held on to second with Dylan Yoder, Bryan Bernheisel and Terver Feathers making up the top five.

Satterlee didn’t let Eckert out of his sight and was looking to the inside of the leader for an opportunity to take the top spot. The leaders entered lapped traffic on lap 7 which allowed Eckert to create some distance between Satterlee.

Cory Lawler spun in turn 3 bringing out the caution on lap 13. Eckert led Satterlee, Yoder, Bernheisel and Feathers to the cone for the single-file restart. Eckert had a solid restart and Yoder was all over Satterlee for second. Gene Knaub was working on Feathers for a way into the top five.

Satterlee got a good look under Eckert on lap 17 in turn 4 but did not make the pass. Eckert could not shake Satterlee and Gregg took the lead on lap 22 with a pass in turn 2.

Yoder started closing in on Eckert for second and took the spot on lap 24. Yoder started to close in on Satterlee as they raced through lapped traffic. Yoder got high in turn 4 on lap 27 which allowed Eckert to once again content for second.

Feathers was working on Bernheisel for fourth with 5 laps to go as Satterlee paced the field.

Satterlee took the checkered flag 1.516 seconds ahead of Yoder. Eckert crossed the line third and Feather was fourth. Bernheisel completed the top five.

Cameron Smith Continues Rookie Season Success

Tylar Rutherford and Ashley Cappetta made up the front row for the start of the 20-lap 358 sprint car feature on Saturday night. Cappetta led lap 1 with David Holbrook second and Hayden Miller and Cameron Smith battling for third. Smith took third on lap 2 and quickly reeled in Holbrook to battle for second. Smith got by Holbrook on lap 3 and quickly tracked down Cappetta.

Cody Fletcher stopped on the back stretch bringing out the caution on lap 4. The top five for the restart were Cappetta, Smith, Holbrook, Miller and Rutherford.

Smith went to the top on the restart but could not make the pass for the lead. Cameron took over the top spot by inches at the line on lap 6.

Rutherford slowed coming out of turn 4 and nearly collected Kody Hartlaub on the front stretch. Rutherford limped the car into the infield so no caution was thrown.

Smith got out of shape in turn 4 allowing Cappetta to close in to challenge for the lead.

Lap 14 saw a caution for debris on the track. Smith led Cappetta, Holbrook, Miller and Steve Owings to the cone for the restart. Smith had a strong restart and quickly pulled away from the field. Hartlaub got by Owings for fifth.

Tyler Brehm stopped in turn 2 resulting in a caution on lap 18. The yellow flag would wave again on lap 19 when Jayden Wolf was sitting backwards in turn 4.

Smith, Cappetta, Holbrook, Hartlaub and Miller lined up for a one lap shoot out. Smith got to the checkered flag 1.290 seconds ahead of Cappetta for his division leading fourth win of the season. Holbrook crossed the line third and Hartlaub was fourth. Miller completed the top five.

Stephen Wurtzer Victorious in Central PA Legends Feature

Stephen Wurtzer wired the field for his first career Lincoln Speedway Legends win. Wurtzer started on the pole and led the field into turn 1. Preston Alleman was second and Bob Stough was third at the line. Stough brought out the caution on lap 1 when he slowed and stopped in turn 2.

Wurtzer led Alleman, Travis McClelland, Seth Kearchner and Travis Perry for the restart. Wes Alleman came to a stop before the green flag bringing out the caution on the restart. The field lined up again and McClelland got by Preston for second.

Kearchner got by Alleman for third and Perry followed sending Alleman to fifth.

Chris Transeau worked his way into the top five and was all over Perry for fourth. Chad Earnst stopped in turn 2 bringing out the yellow flag on lap 10.

The top five for the restart were Wurtzer, McClelland, Kearchner, Perry and Transeau. Lap 14 saw the caution come out for debris. Devon Friese had worked his way up to fifth for the restart. The top four raced under a blanket as the laps wound down.

Wurtzer got to the checkered flag .609 seconds ahead of McClelland to score his first win at the track. Perry was third and Kearchner finished fourth. Friese completed the top five.

Anthony Macri Continues Dominant Season in 410 Competition with First World of Outlaws Triumph; Dillan Stake Scores Yet Another Limited Late Model Win

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Penn. (Oct. 8, 2022)- In a season filled with multiple trips to victory lane across Central Pennsylvania and afar, it's hard to believe that the Anthony Macri had yet to conquer the NOS Energy Drink World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series in 2022.

Well, Macri got over the hump and scored his first career Outlaw triumph during the Friday night opener of the Nittany Showdown Friday night over a hard charging Lance Dewease, Logan Wagner, Justin Whittall and David Gravel.

The victory was worth $10,000 and only furthered ensured that Macri would be a favorite to bring home the $15,000 payday come Saturday night in the finale.

Macri captured the pole position for the 25-lap event courtesy of a fortunate redraw and he lined up alongside of Justin Whittall to take the green flag. He quickly pounded to grab the top spot on the opening lap over Schatz, Whittall, Dewease and Spencer Bayston.

Whittall got back by Schatz on lap two, while Macri was setting a torrid pace up front and caught the tail end of the field five laps later.

Dewease moved past Schatz for the final podium spot on the same lap and five laps later he got by Whittall for the runner-up spot. Eighth-place starter Logan Wagner was on the move and he moved into fourth after the completion of 15 laps as well.

One lap later the feature event's lone caution flew when Brent Marks got into the frontstretch outside guardrail with a flat tired to come to a stop while racing for sixth.

Dewease showed his muscle in turn's three and four following the return to green-flag action as he slid under Macri for the top spot briefly, but Macri was able to cross back under coming to the flagstand to retain the lead. Dewease would try again on the next circuit to no avail.

Four laps later Wagner continued his march to the front as he moved into the final podium spot and Dewease would close within striking distance with two laps remaining. However, Macri was too strong off the top as he held on to grab the victory by a margin of .772 seconds.

Schatz, Bayston, Sye Lynch, Ryan Smith and Carson Macedo rounded out the top ten. 18th-place finisher Logan Schuchart earned the night's $500 Valley Supply Hard Charger award after taking a provisional to start the A-main.

410 Sprint Car Feature Results: 1. Anthony Macri; 2. Lance Dewease; 3. Logan Wagner; 4. Justin Whittall; 5. David Gravel; 6. Donny Schatz; 7. Spencer Bayston; 8. Sye Lynch; 9. Ryan Smith; 10.

Dillan Stake continued what has been a dominant season in Selinsgrove Ford Limited Late Model as he scored the victory during the Top-24 invite only feature event for the division. Devin Hart, Taylor Farling, Derrick Garman and Andrew Yoder rounded out the top five.

Hart scored the $100 Dedicated Nursing Associates, Inc. Hard Charger Award after starting eighth on the grid.

Stake holds a 280-point advantage in the standings with one night left of racing on the 2022 schedule for the division. Hart, Shawn Shoemaker, Trent Brenneman and Ryan Zook round out the top five.

The series will return to action on Friday, Oct. 21st as part of the annual Blue Collar Classic event to close out their season.

Abbottstown, PA

GIOVANNI SCELZI HOLDS OFF BUDDY KOFOID TO WIN THE BRIAN MONTIETH CLASSIC

Saturday, October 8, 2022 (6PM) LAZER LATE MODEL CLASH: Super Late Models, 358 Sprints and Central PA Legends

Saturday, October 15, 2022 (6PM) DEAN’S AUTO PLAZA NIGHT OF CHAMPIONS: 410 Sprints and 358 Sprints [rain date: October 16]

Saturday & Sunday, February 25-26, 2023 ICE BREAKER WEEKEND

Abbottstown, PA (October 6, 2022) – Giovanni Scelzi had yet to have success at Lincoln Speedway but that all changed Thursday night at the Brian Montieth Classic. Scelzi drew the 1 in the redraw, putting him on the pole for the 35-lap $7,500 to win feature. The first words out of his mouth in victory lane were, “I think hell froze over if I won at this place. I’ve struggled my whole career here. Drawing the 1 definitely helped.”

Scelzi found himself in lapped traffic late in the race which allowed Buddy Kofoid to close in and take a shot at the lead, “I couldn’t quite tell who it was. I knew with those lappers in front of me someone would be closing.” A caution with two laps to go realigned the field and set up Scelzi for his first career Lincoln win. Scelzi joked in victory lane, “I also said if I ever won a 410 race here I’m going to retire so I hope you guys enjoyed it this is the last time you’ll ever see me race.”

Giovanni ran the high line around the track most of the race and when asked about the similarity to the driving style of the night’s honoree, Brian Montieth, Scelzi shared, “I can’t run the top quite as hard as he can, I think I need to shave my head.”

Scelzi took the lead from the pole when the green flag dropped with Brian Brown in second and Kyle Reinhardt in third. Justin Peck got by Dylan Norris at the line for fourth.

Reinhardt was searching the bottom, looking for a way around Brown for second. Scelzi was pulling away from the field as Brown, Reinhardt and Peck battled for second. Giovanni entered lapped traffic on lap 6, right before the caution came out on lap 7 when Glenndon Forsythe slowed on the back stretch. Forsythe had been running in the top 10.

Scelzi, Brown, Reinhardt, Peck and Norris were the top five for the restart. Reinhardt looked under Brown for second and took the spot coming out turn 2. Cory Haas brought out the caution on lap 8 when he stopped coming out of turn 2.

Peck was all over Brown on the restart and the two were nose to tail at the line. Norris was holding off a charge by Buddy Kofoid right behind them. Kofoid got by Norris for fifth and went to work on Peck. Buddy slid Peck for fourth in turn 2 and took the spot on lap 13. Scelzi found himself in lapped traffic again on lap 15 with two lapped cars racing side by side in front of him, allowing Reinhardt to close in.

Kofoid reeled in Brown and the two were side by side at the line on lap 18. Kofoid took third from Brown on lap 19. Peck followed, taking fourth.

Reinhardt got caught behind a lapped car allowing Kofoid to close in. Kofoid tried a slide job on Reinhardt for second on lap 22 but did not complete the pass.

Danny Dietrich was on the move running sixth with 10 laps to go after starting 19th. Kofoid got by Reinhardt for second on lap 25. Once again, Peck followed taking third.

Kofoid was closing in on Giovanni as they both ran the top line around the track. Kofoid was on Scelzi’s bumper with 3 laps to go at the line.

The yellow flag waved on lap 33 when Devon Borden stopped in turn 4.

Scelzi, Kofoid, Peck, Reinhardt and Dietrich lined up for a green, white, checkered finish.

Both Gio and Buddy went high in turns 1 and 2. Scelzi held on to win and crossed the line .970 seconds ahead of Kofoid. Peck finished third and Dietrich was the hard charger, finishing fourth after starting 19th. Reinhardt completed the top five.

BAPS Moves Sprint Car Event to "The Night Before"

YORK HAVEN, Pa.: A shift on the schedule will lead to more posted money for 410 Sprint Car drivers in October at BAPS Motor Speedway.

On the heels of the Williams Grove National Open being postponed last weekend and moved to October 22, the management team of Kolten Gouse and Scott Gobrecht made the decision to alter the schedule to accommodate the storied event.

Gouse and Gobrecht have moved the regularly scheduled 410 Sprint, Limited Late Model, and Extreme Stock triple-header on October 22 to one day earlier. The newly branded “The Night Before” presented by Denk Electric and Pleasantville Construction will take place on Friday, October 21 and is the perfect lead-in to the National Open.

The purse for the 410 Sprints now features a $6,000 payday to the winner, courtesy of the speedway and www.SprintCarUnlimited.TV. The Creekside Auto Sales Late Models will hold their final point race of the season, and the Superior Homes Extreme Stocks will have a feature-only program. Hot laps are 6:45 p.m. with heat races taking place at 7:30.

“We understand the importance of the National Open to the central Pennsylvania region,” Gouse said. “Moving to Friday also gives some traveling teams an opportunity to run two races instead of one that weekend.

“Anytime you can give a little extra money to teams, that’s a positive. We have to thank our sponsors for stepping up and making this a bigger event on a weekend that will draw attention from around the country.”

The regularly scheduled Extreme Stock Invitational has been taken off the schedule because of the date change. General admission is $25 for adults, $20 for seniors, and $15 for students. Kids 12-under are free. Pit passes are $35.
