PRS 2014 – Racing through a new decade with a new attitude! Port Royal Speedway

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

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

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

10/19/14

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Keep up to date on all the latest speedway news and information by visiting the oval’s official website at portroyalspeedway.com or by following the track on Facebook or Twitter.

Haas, Eichelberger, Foster And Kline Close Williams Grove Season With Fall Fest Wins

Track Title Laurels Bestowed Upon Hodnett, Heffner & Nouse

10/18/14

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Under the caution period, Marks rejoined at the rear.

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

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

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

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

Buckwalter finished a strong fourth followed by

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Randy Doty takes All-American Outlaw main

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

10/11/14

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Wagner settled for second.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Twin heats went to Snook and Zook.

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

Grant Adams takes limited lates

10/10/14

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Singleton then stopped on the backstretch with 10 laps completed.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

10/4/14

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

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

Lucas Wolfe flanked Gravel for the start.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

“I’m just ashamed that I hit him.”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

October 4, 2014 Feature Finishes:

410 sprints, 40 laps: 1. David Gravel, 2. Donny Schatz, 3. Daryn Pittman,4. Dale Blaney, 5. Lance Dewease, 6. Shane Stewart, 7. Danny Dietrich, 8. Brad Sweet, 9. Stevie Smith, 10. Alan Krimes, 11.

Port Royal – Even though the STP World of Outlaws are competing in the area during the next week, there will still be another chance this season to catch all the best sprint car drivers in the world do battle under one roof when the STP World of Outlaws visit Port Royal Speedway on Saturday, October 25 at 5 pm.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Selinsgrove Speedway

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

9/29/14

Mechanicsburg – Sprint car fans in the East will gather this Saturday night to see the 52nd running of the Williams Grove Speedway National Open for sprint cars sanctioned by the STP World of Outlaws, going 40-laps in distance and paying $50,000 to the winner.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Schatz was again the winner in 2007.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Gates open at 5 pm both nights.

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

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

Saturday Open pays $50,000 to win!

9/28/14

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The National Open itself carries a raindate of October 5.

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

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

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

Gates open at 5 pm both nights.

LINCOLN SPEEDWAY

Abbottstown, PA

THE DIRT CLASSIC PRESENTED BY KASEY KAHNE

UPCOMING SHOWS:

Sat., October 4, 2014 - NO RACING

Sat., Oct 11, 2014 (6 PM) - FINAL RACE OF SEASON (Rain date Sunday, 10/12) - 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints & Central PA Legends

INAUGURAL LINCOLN “DIRT CLASSIC PRESENTED BY KASEY KAHNE” GOES TO STEVIE SMITH

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 9/27/14 – Stevie Smith has had a number of memorable wins at Lincoln Speedway. His first career World of Outlaws win was in the Pigeon Hills. His first track title was in the Pigeon Hills. His most recent World of Outlaws win was in the Pigeon Hills. And now his name will stand for all-time as the first winner of the “Dirt Classic Presented by Kasey Kahne.

A unique qualifying format which required the drivers to gather points for time trials and a pair of heat races put Smith on the pole for the 40-lap, $20,000-to-win Classic. He followed outside front row starter Lance Dewease for one lap before making the race-winning pass in the first two turns of lap two. From there, he held off Dewease and the rest of the field through heavy lapped traffic over the second half of the race to score his second win of the year and 26th career win the Pigeon Hills.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Nouse gets sixth in 358 sprints

9/26/14

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

“It was a hell of a race!”

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

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

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

Invader Dollansky rode home fourth followed by Dewease.

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

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

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

Dietrich set fast time with a lap of 16.498 seconds.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Zach Overmiller and Mike Zelionis each took victories in the two 8-lap Sidewinder Sprint Car features.

In the 25-lap 410 Sprint Car feature event, Greg Hodnett took the early lead over Freddie Rahmer. Rahmer stayed close and within striking distance as the duo entered lapped traffic midway through the race. A caution on lap 13 closed up the field and gave Hodnett smooth waters in front of him. On the restart, Danny Dietrich moved around Rahmer to take the runner-up spot and set his sites on Hodnett. The pair swapped positions up front for three laps until Dietirch finally took command of the top spot on lap 19. Dietrich went on to claim the checkers over Hodnett and Rahmer. Lance Dewease finished fourth followed by Mark Smith in fifth. Heat race wins went to Rahmer, Hodnett and Aaron Ott. Dave Ely won the consolation race.

Midway through the race, Smith took the runner-up spot and set his sights on Walter. Meanwhile, Curt Michael moved into third, coming from a 7th place starting spot. On lap 13, the three car battle for the lead found Michael in the lead with Walter in second and Smith back to third. Michael set the pace and took the victory in the race. With three laps to go, Smith retook the runner-up spot to finish second when Walter slowed with mechanical issues. Stillwagon came across the line in third, followed by Kyle Reinhardt in fourth and Derrick Locke in fifth place. Heat victors were Smith, Stillwagon and Michael. The consolation win went to Ryan Wilson.

In the first of two 8-lap Sidewinder Sprint Car features, Brandon Yarlett took the early lead until lap 6 when Austin Quick scooted by taking over the top spot. At the checkers, it was Quick taking the win over Turk Tabb in second. Yarlett finished third, followed by Zach Overmiller and Rohan Beasley on fourth and fifth respectively. Following the race, the top three finishers failed to go to post-race technical inspections, giving the victory to Overmiller.

World Of Outlaws Storm Port Royal Speedway In 34 Days!

9/21/14

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

SCHULTZ EARNS FIRST SPRINT CAR WIN OF SEASON

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Central PA 358 Point Series presented by Capitol Renegade

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

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

The top 10 in points for the Central PA 358 Point Series presented by Capitol Renegade looks like this ...

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

DANNY DIETRICH EDGES BRIAN MONTIETH IN MANUFACTURERS NIGHT 410 SPRINT THRILLER;

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

Dalton Dietrich wins first of career in PASS Racesaver Sprints

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Marks put a slider on Hogue to take the runner-up spot and close in on the leader.

Montieth and Greg Hodnett passed Hogue to move up in the top five shortly thereafter.

Marks and Montieth both began to close on the leader at that point as well.

All three drivers ended up clearing the lapped cars for the final five laps.

They were close as they raced under the two-lap sign from the flagman and then Marks pulled the trigger for the slider in turn three, clearing Wilson as they raced off turn four to the white flag.

“The track was just so fast tonight,” said Marks.

“It was racy, but it was fast and it took a lot of patience. I couldn’t get by Austin and I seen Ryan pulling away from us. Finally, I pulled a slider down here in three and cleared him."

"I beat the crap out of my car to catch him. I’m up to 290 degrees on my engine and that’s not good. Hopefully, we didn’t hurt that."

"I was just close enough to complete the pass. I knew I had him cleared, I figured he had to get out of it. I’m excited to get our sixth win of the year. It means a lot. This is a great year for us.”

It was Wilson’s second runner-up this season.

“We’re getting closer,” said Wilson. “Brent knows how to pull a slide-job better than I do and he knows how to turn back under somebody better than I do. I’m still in that learning curve.”

He controlled the final lap to score the win over Wilson, Montieth, Hodnett and Lance Dewease. Hogue, Alan Krimes, Lafferty, point leader Don Kreitz Jr. and Danny Dietrich completed the top 10.

Marks, Hodnett and Dewease won the 10-lap heat races for the 28-car field. Cory Haas won the consolation.

In the 358 sprint feature, Chad Trout grabbed the early race lead and built a comfortable lead. Point leader Kevin Nouse started 13th and was quickly into the top five.

Chandler Leiby took second spot from Jordan Givler with 10 laps to go and began to close on Trout.

The caution flag flew with six laps to go in the 20 lap feature. Nouse would slide by Leiby on the restart, but couldn’t catch Trout as he scored his first win of the season.

Doug Hammaker passed Leiby for third. Adrian Shaffer came from last to fifth.

Jordan Givler, Tony Smolenyak, Chris Arnold, Matt Findley and Scott Fisher completed the top 10.

Shaffer and Tony Smolenyak won the eight-lap heat races for the 20-car field.

ROOKIE OF-THE-YEAR WYATT HINKLE WINS FIRST CAREER 358 SPRINT FEATURE;

Hanover, PA (09/19/14) – Remember the name Wyatt Hinkle.

The 14-year-old from East Berlin entered the season planning to just run test and tune nights at area tracks and get prepared for 2015. He made a last minute decision to compete as a rookie at Trail-Way Speedway, and was among the lapped cars in the first several events.

Hinkle got better every week, and locked up rookie of-the-year honors last time out.

On Friday, he added the exclamation point, taking the lead from the pole and leading every lap for his first career sprint car win. And he did it in dramatic fashion, with his smoking Triple A Transport/Stoney Point Farm Market #19D holding off Seth Kearchner and Randy Whisler over the final five laps. His margin of victory in the thriller was a half car length over Kearchner.

“I started seeing Kearchner with three to go,” said a jubilant Hinkle in victory lane, “and not to mention that my motor was blowing up…”

Hinkle no doubt received another incentive to stay out front when he saw the #6R of track champ Brad McClelland pull into the infield on the first lap.

The race went non-stop in a time of 6 minutes, 11.94 seconds.

Another car length behind Kearchner was Whisler in third, with Dwight Leppo (season points runner-up) and Brian Eichelberger completing the top five.

Heats for the 11 “358” sprinters were won by McClelland and Leppo.

Mike Zielonis and Jim Young were winners in the double features for 1000cc “Sidewinder” micro-sprints.

Zielonis started second and led every lap of the non-stop first feature, establishing a new track record for 12 laps at 3 minutes, 14.03 seconds. Young came from seventh and last starting spot to pass both Brandon Yarlett and Rohan Beasley to advance from fourth to second on lap seven and finish in the runner-up spot, with Yarlett holding onto third.

Young came back to start on the pole and lead every lap of the second feature in a non-stop time of 3 minutes, 18.84 seconds. Beasley and Zach Overmiller rounded out the top three.

The 21-lap Lyle Adcock Memorial for Classic Cars went to first-time winner Steve Clemo.

Clemo started on the pole and led the first four laps before yielding to Ron Grove. Grove led the next five laps before spinning out in turn two, handing the lead back over to Clemo.

Clemo led the rest of the way, followed at the finish by Neal Reamer, Grove, Dorsey Weaver, and Vincent Crocker. They were the only cars running at the end.

Qualifiers for the nine Classic Cars were won by Matt Wallace and Clemo.

Cory Weishaar advanced from 11th to sixth following an opening lap melee, and went on to win the 15-lap limited stock feature.

Weishaar snatched the lead from Ricky Weaver, Jr. to become the fifth different leader of the event on lap six, and ran away to a 4.28-second win over Weaver, with Matt Chronister coming from the back after a first-lap spin to cross third. Terry Hartlaub (who started 14th) and Tom Senseney, Jr. rounded out the top five.

Heats for the 18 limited stocks were won by Robbie Carroll and Ricky Weaver, Jr.

Tomorrow (9/20), Trail-Way will host the Kevin Gobrecht Memorial race for the 600cc Micro Sprints, Mason-Dixon 270cc Micro Sprints, Central PA Legends, and ACMS 600 Stock Micro Sprints.

On Friday, October 3rd, Trail-Way will host the 16th Annual “Thunder on the Farm” featuring the 358 Late Models, Limited Stocks, and Street Stocks. The raindate will be the next day, Saturday, Oct. 4th.

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY MACH 1 CHASSIS 360 SPRINT CAR NATIONAL OPEN WILL PAY $10,000 TO WIN SEPT. 27

FINAL POINTS RACE THIS SATURDAY, SEPT. 20

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

The purse for this year's 358-360 sprint car Open will exceed $35,000, with $5,000 being posted to finish second, $1,000 for a 10th-place finish, and $500 just to start the race. Time trials, double heats (points will be awarded), and B-mains will be the qualifying format for the A-main. Track gates will open at 5 p.m.

The rain date, if needed, will be Sunday, Sept. 28, with the time to be determined.

The 360 sprint car Open will conclude the track's 2014 racing season, which marked the inaugural year for the 360 sprint cars as the weekly headline open wheel division. To date, 16 races have produced eight different feature winners. Points leader Mark Smith of Sunbury leads the win column with six victories at the track, followed by three-time winner TJ Stutts of Liverpool.

Davie Franek of Wantage, N.J., is the only other repeat winner with two checkered flags. Single wins this season in 360 sprint car action include Aaron Ott of East Berlin; Brock Zearfoss of Jonestown; Ryan Kissinger of Bloomsburg; Cody Keller of Selinsgrove; and Robbie Stillwaggon of Burlington, N.J.

In 358-360 sprint car Open history at Selinsgrove Speedway, 13 races have produced eight different winners since 2001.

In last year's Open, which drew a stellar field of 50 entries, Stutts scored a convincing flag-to-flag victory over Blane Heimbach of Selinsgrove to mark the third time Stutts won the prestigious race, having also won the Open in 2001 and 2003. In 2012, Pat Cannon of Etters became the first three-time winner of the 358-360 sprint car Open. Cannon also scored victories in 2007 and 2008.

Logan Schuchart of Hanover drove to an impressive victory in the 2011 race. In 2010, Daryn Pittman of Owasso, Okla., was awarded the win when Cannon's race car was under the legal weight during the post-race inspection.

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

FRANKIE HERR RECORDS 7TH LAWRENCE CHEVROLET SPORTSMAN 100 WIN;

Gene Knaub Dominates Again in 358 Late Model Action

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 9/13/14 – Frankie Herr continues to rewrite the super sportsman record books. From his fourth starting spot, Herr led 32 laps early, and then led the final 39 to record his seventh win in the prestigious 40th Annual Lawrence Chevrolet Sportsman 100 at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

Herr chased down outside frontrow starter and race long leader Mike Enders to take his first lead on lap 16 and paced the field through lap 48. Polesitter Gregg Foster had stayed with the leaders, Herr and Enders, through the first half of the 100 lap event and raced by Enders for second on lap 48 and then by Herr for the lead a lap later on lap 49.

Herr and Enders stayed with the race-leading Foster as the top-three raced though lapped traffic just past the halfway point of the 100-lap marathon. Herr got back around Foster for the lead on lap 61 and paced the field to the 70-lap break with Enders and 17th-starting Russ Mitten both keeping pace as the 70th-lap caution, signaled the break in the action.

All teams then headed to the pits for 10 minutes to work on their cars at the 70th lap break in the action’

But nobody had anything for Herr over the final 30-laps as he extended a 3-second lead to 9.53 seconds over the final 10 laps and took the checkered over eighth-starting Chad Criswell and Mitten for his second consecutive Sportsman 100 victory.

Enders, and 20th-starting Carmen Perigo, Jr. completed the top-five.

Rounding out the top10 were Doug Dodson, Bobby Hockenberry, Chad Smith, Paul Miller and Leroy Martin.

Early race contender Scott Geesey was running third when it appeared something broke on his can and turned hard into the third and fourth turn wall on lap 39 and flipped. Geesey was uninjured .

Including lap money, Herr took home $5,138 for his dominating performance which saw him lead 71 of the 100 laps run.

Super Sportsman qualifiers were won by Chad Smith and Tom Wykoff, with Devin Beidel winning the last chance race. Fast time in time trials over the 36-car field was Chad Criswell with a new one-lap track record time of 15.083-seconds (89.209 MPH).

For the second year in-a-row, Dover’s Gene Knaub followed up Frankie Herr’s Sportsman 100 win with his own in the 20-lap 358 Late Model feature.

Knaub, who started fourth, grabbed the lead from outside frontrow starting Kyle Martin on the second lap and never looked back en route to the 2.94-second win over Sam Gallagher, Martin, Ron Kline, and Charlie Schaffer.

Completing the top-10 were Les Hare, Travis Mease, Cam Zeigler, Tyler Horst, and Chaz Walls.

Heats for the “358" Late Models were won by Charlie Schaffer, Cam Zeigler, and Sam Gallagher

Lincoln will return to action next Saturday night, September 20th with the annual HANK GENTZLER MEMORIAL/MANUFACTURERS APPRECIATION RACE for the 410 Sprints. Rounding out the two division show will be the 358 Sprints. Time trials at 7 PM, with gates opening at 5 PM.

Hodnett Wires Field For 410 National Open Victory Cannon's Chase Falls Short, Finishes Second

SELINSGROVE, Pa. -- Fourth-place starter Greg Hodnett of Thomasville stormed into the lead at the drop of the green flag and wired the field for a convincing victory in Saturday night’s 44-lap Jim Nace Memorial 32nd Annual National Open for 410 sprint cars at Selinsgrove Speedway.

The $12,000 flag-to-flag win at the wheel of the Lelands.com No. 27 was Hodnett’s first of the year and 15th career at Selinsgrove and 10th overall this season in 410 sprint car racing. Hodnett joins Todd Shaffer of Millerstown as four-time winners of the Open.

Pat Cannon of Etters, who was attempting to become the first driver to win the Open four years in a row, finished in the second position.

Danny Holtgraver of Pittsburgh was the night’s Fast Tees Fast Qualifier with a lap time of 15.991 over the 28-car field.

Jeff Rine of Danville scored his sixth win of the season in the 25-lap super late model feature. The victory was Rine’s 91st career at the track and strengthens his points lead over Steve Campbell of Danville in the close chase for the championship.

The start of the racing program was delayed by 90 minutes while the track crew prepped the saturated speedway surface from rain showers that ended about 2:30 p.m.

Selinsgrove Speedway will present the final points race of the season for the 360 sprint cars, late models, pro stocks, and roadrunners at 7 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 20. The 14th Annual Mach 1 Chassis National Open for 360 sprint cars will close out the season at 7 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 27.

On the start of the sprint car feature, fourth-place starter Greg Hodnett pulled off a breathtaking move using the highline off turn four to take the early lead while second-place starter Justin Barger and polesitter Danny Holtgraver held down the top three positions.

By lap five, Hodnett was already beginning to encounter slower traffic as he soared around the half-mile oval at breakneck speeds. A lap seven caution flag for a flat tire on Steve Buckwalter’s car regrouped the field.

On the ensuing restart, Hodnett quickly stretched his lead again over the field. On the ninth circuit, 16th-place starter TJ Stutts flipped wildly out over the fourth turn guardrail. Stutts escaped injury.

When the race resumed, seventh-place starter Pat Cannon made an exciting drive around the top of the track in turns one and two to take over the third position. A lap later, Cannon stormed into the second spot and started gaining real estate on the leader. The caution flag unfurled again on lap 16 when Aaron Ott’s car blew a tire in turn four.

On the lap 17 restart, 18th-place starter Lucas Wolfe powered into the top five and showed a lot of speed. The race was halted on lap 22 for a scheduled fuel stop.

At the start of the second half of the race, Hodnett continued his dominating performance while Cannon struggled with lapped traffic. With 10 laps remaining, however, Cannon started to reel in Hodnett and at one point closed the gap to nearly 1.5 seconds. The final caution flag waved on lap 40 when Wolfe’s car rolled to a stop in turn four with a broken nose wing, ending an impressive drive from deep in the field.

For the final four laps, Hodnett streaked around the oval and posted a 5.6 second margin of victory over Cannon, Holtgraver, Barger, and ninth-place starter Brent Marks.

Second-place starter Tim Wilson powered into the lead at the start of the super late model feature. On the first circuit, sixth-place starter Tony Adams horsepowered his way into the runner-up position and set his sights on Wilson.

The race’s first caution flag unfurled on lap nine when Jim Bernheisel’s car stopped in the second turn. On the lap 10 restart, 10th-place starter Jeff Rine advanced to second and chased Wilson for the lead. On the 15th circuit, Wilson’s car blew an engine and rolled to a stop in turn four.

For the restart, Rine inherited the lead with Adams in tow. In the final laps of the race, Rine stretched his lead and posted a five-second margin of victory over Adams, polesitter Pancho Lawler, eighth-place starter Andy Haus, and seventh-place starter Bryan Bernheisel.

Central PA 358 Point Series presented by Capitol Renegade

As the 2014 racing season rapidly winds down the Central PA 358 Point Series presented by Capitol Renegade got two more shows in the books. This weekend the 358 sprint teams raced at both Trail Way and Williams Grove Speedeway's on Friday night. At Williams Grove Kevin Nouse would come from 10th starting spot to claim his 8th victory of the season and 5th at the historic half mile. Nouse would stretch his point lead at the track over Adrian Shaffer, Doug Hammaker, Scott Fisher and Rich Eichelberger.

At Trail Way Speedway Brad McClelland would score his 9th win of the season in the highest paying race of the season at the Bullring near Hanover in the $2,000 Trone Outdoor Championship. McClelland would start 8th and captuer not only the win the feature his 10th overall in 2014 but be crowned the 2014 Track Champion at the track. Dwight Leppo would come home in 2nd, Jeff Rohrbaugh, Cody Fletcher and Tyler Buchenauer.

The series point standings have not changed this week as both of the series leaders won both their heats and respective feature events. The Rookie of the Year standings have tightened up as Tyler Buchenauer is now just 18 points back from Tyler Esh who was hurt back in July in a wreck at Lincoln Speedway. Esh was well on his way to the ROY and has held onto the point lead in the standings all summer even though he has not raced since July. With only a few races left can Buchenauer catch him or will have Esh built up enough of a lead to hold on and be crowned the 2014 Central PA 358 Point Series Rookie of the Year.

With Half the series point races being held this coming weekend as Trail Way Speedway host their last race of the season and Williams Grove Speedway both racing Friday night the series leaders will be looking to score some major points before heading to Lincoln Speedway on Saturday night.

410 and 358 sprints split racing card September 19

9/14/14

Mechanicsburg – As the autumn of the racing season arrives at Williams Grove Speedway the point chase is as red hot as the blazing hues on the trees at this time of year as sprint car titans Greg Hodnett and Don Kreitz Jr. battle week after week for the 2014 track crown.

And their battle will continue again this Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway when the Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprints and the Tool Shed of America 358 sprints join for exciting racing action.

McCLELLAND WINS FEATURE AND TRACK TITLE IN TRAIL-WAY 358’S;

Hanover, PA (09/12/14) – Brad McClelland took home all the prizes in Friday night’s 30-lap Trone Outdoor Advertising “358” sprint car championship at Trail-Way Speedway.

The Westminster, MD superstar came from eighth starting spot to claim the hard-charger award, win his ninth race of the year, and claim another Trail-Way track title.

And again, the McClelland driving clinic made it look much easier than it was.

“I was getting loose and the car was bottoming out,” said McClelland in victory lane.

Not to mention the fact that he got together with Isaac Sneeringer while racing for the lead in turn two of lap 21, rolling over the right rear wheel of Sneeringer and bouncing off the wall.

Sneeringer came to a stop in turn three with a flat right rear, bringing out the only caution flag of the event. But Sneeringer’s throttle was also stuck, and he dropped from the event.

Sneeringer’s misfortune ended a night which saw him come from sixth starting spot to the lead by lap two. He was nearly a half-lap ahead of the rest of the field by the time he reached lapped traffic on lap eight.

Though McClelland saved it and assumed the lead for the lap 21 restart, his right rear tire went down in victory lane, and needed towed back to the pits.

“I knew lapped traffic would be a factor,” said McClelland, “But I was happy to chase him down. Heck, at one point I didn’t even see him!”

“I want to thank John Trone for sponsoring this race,” McClelland continued, “He’s sponsored a big race every year since the 358’s started running here.”

Dwight Leppo started fifth and crossed second, with seventh-starting Jeff Rohrbaugh, Cody Fletcher, and rookie Tyler Buchenauer rounding out the top five.

Heats for the 15 “358” sprint cars were won by Rohrbaugh and McClelland.

Steve Cox came also came from eighth starting spot to win in the 20-lap 270cc micro-sprint feature. And, like McClelland, he claimed the track title with the win.

But Cox’s championship was a little more dramatic. He was fourth in a close points chase heading into the race, and his win combined with Brian Marriot’s fourth-place finish gave Cox the title by a single point over Marriott. Marriott actually returned from the rear after tipping onto his side while racing for second in turn two of lap ten. Jim Still and Cory Myers were second and third in points. Still started near the back and finished sixth. Myers was running second when he slowed to a stop on lap 18, ending his night.

Twelfth-starting Joe Trone, Jr. and Bill Laughman crossed second and third, with Michael Boer finishing fifth.

Qualifiers for the 18 micros were won by Cox and Myers.

Not to be outdone, Dan Furman also won both the feature and track title in the street stocks.

And to add drama, he started last and took the lead in a wild three-car battle for the front spot on lap 11. Just after Furman took the lead, Jeremy Stremmel and Michael Goodwin collided while racing for second, with Stremmel heading to the pits and Goodwin (who led laps six through ten) rejoining at the rear.

Furman’s final margin of victory was a whopping 5.82 seconds over Goodwin, with Brian Blank, Jr., Joey Harrison, and Kelly Seal III the only other cars running at the end.

Heats for the 11 street stocks were won by Stremmel and Goodwin.

Terry Hartlaub broke the night’s pattern by claiming his first win of the year in the 15-lap limited stock feature. Hartlaub started fourth and led every lap.

Shane Miller, Tom Senseney, Cody Klinedinst, and Ricky Weaver, Jr. completed the top five.

Heats for the 24 limited stocks were won by Julio Perez, Hartlaub, and Shane Miller.

Hartlaub won his heat after passing turn three inspection of his rear hood, when his car entered the track carrying half of a hotdog and a piece of pizza.

Tomorrow (9/20), Trail-Way will host a A.M.A. Motorcycle short-track event. Gates open at 3 p.m. with racing beginning at 6 p.m.

Next Friday (9/19), Trail-Way will host the 358 Sprint Cars, 1000cc Sidewinder Sprints, Limited Stocks, and the Classic Cars will be here for the Lyle Adcock Memorial. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. and racing begins at 7:30 p.m.

Saturday (9/20), Trail-Way will host the Kevin Gobrecht Memorial race for the 600cc Micro Sprints, Mason-Dixon 270cc Micro Sprints, Central PA Legends, and ACMS 600 Stock Micro Sprints.

The 16th Annual “Thunder on the Farm” event has been moved from its originally scheduled date to Friday, October 3rd to eliminate a conflict with Susquehanna Speedway Park. The event will still feature the 358 Late Models, Limited Stocks, and Street Stocks.

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

Westhafer & Montieth Win Williams Grove Super Sprints, Nouse Gets Fifth In 358s

9/12/14

Mechanicsburg – Rodney Westhafer of Mechanicsburg held off Lance Dewease to win the make up Billy Kimmel Memorial for 410 sprints at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, scoring his first ever 410 sprint main at the track.

In the regularly slated 410 sprint main, Brian Montieth got around Westhafer to prevent him from making a clean sweep of the night’s features while Kevin Nouse won his fifth 358 sprint main of the season at the track.

Westhafer led from the outset of the Kimmel feature, run as the first event on the program.

Cory Haas gave chase early with Alan Krimes and Ryan Smith in tow as Westhafer began working lapped traffic on the 12th tour.

Smith was up to third with 10 laps to go when a yellow flag regrouped the field, finding Montieth and Dewease rounding out the top five.

Dewease shot around Montieth on the restart and then Smith with eight laps to go before taking over second with five laps to go.

The Fayetteville flyer then drove down Westhafer’s advantage but seemingly had run out of time to take over the lead when instead of the checkered flag the yellow flag unfurled again with less than a lap to go for debris on the backstretch.

Westhafer held his line in the first and second turns on the restart, keeping Dewease at bay but as the pair shot toward the third corner Dewease was poised for a move.

But Westhafer shot across the bottom of the track to protect from a deep flyer, which proved to be a winning move as he thwarted Dewease’s attempt and pulled up out of the corner to take the hard fought victory by .148 seconds over Dewease.

Greg Hodnett rode home third followed by Smith and Brent Marks.

Sixth through 10th went to Don Kreitz Jr., Haas, Krimes, Nicole Bower and Brian Montieth.

Glenndon Forsythe took the lead at the start of the regularly slated 410 sprint feature and saw Westhafer drive into second on the second tour.

With Forsythe running the top, Westhafer pounded his bottom groove, keeping pace with Forsythe but struggling to complete a pass.

Meanwhile, ninth starter Montieth was working forward, zooming around the cushion and took over third on the ninth tour.

The rapid race pace was slowed on the 11th lap for a stopped Brock Zearfoss and the restart saw a wild three-car race for control take place.

As the leaders headed for the completion of the 14th lap, Westhafer finally got the run off of the bottom out of the second turn that he was looking for and he drove by Forsythe for control but at the same time, Montieth likewise got a run he needed and he drove even lower on the track as the trio entered the third corner, trying to take the lead with a two car pass.

But the near three wide move for control saw Forsythe shoot toward the top of the track in front of the field, losing control and causing another yellow flag to unfurl.

This gave the lead to Westhafer who just like before over Dewease held his ground over Montieth this time in the first and second turns.

But the third and fourth turns would be a different story this time as Montieth overtook the leader to gain control with 10 laps to go and cruise to this second Williams Grove win of the season.

Westhafer settled for a fine second followed by Alan Krimes, Haas and Dewease.

Sixth through 10th went to Don Kreitz Jr., Ryan Smith, Greg Hodnett, Brent Marks and Austin Hogue.

Heats for the 31-car field went to Smith, Dewease, Krimes and Westhafer with Brock Zearfoss claiming the consolation race.

Kevin Nouse motored from the ninth starting spot in the 20-lap 358 sprint main up to fourth on the first lap as Scott Fisher took control.

Nouse moved into third on the second circuit and then was forced to watch veteran Rich Eichelberger try to overtake Fisher for the lead.

It took until the halfway point for Nouse to finally find an opening to weave through in order to put Eichelberger behind him and after getting by for second he made quick work of Fisher for the lead with seven laps to go.

Adrian Shaffer took over second from Fisher with three to go.

Doug Hammaker got around Fisher for third at the finish with Fisher ending up fourth and Eichelberger fading to fifth.

Heats for the 21-car field went to Nouse, Chandler Leiby and Shaffer.

32ND ANNUAL NATIONAL OPEN FOR 410 SPRINT CARS HONORS THE MEMORY OF SPRINT CAR CHAMPION JIM NACE

Late Models Also Scheduled To Compete

Selinsgrove Speedway will honor the memory of the track’s only five-time sprint car champion Jim Nace with the running of this Saturday’s (Sept. 13) 32nd Annual National Open for 410 sprint cars sponsored by Selinsgrove Ford. Track gates will open at 5 p.m. and qualifying is slated to begin at 7 p.m.

The Nace Memorial National Open will be a 44-lap tribute race paying $12,000 to win and $500 to start out of a total purse in excess of $40,000. The Fast Tees Fast Time Award will pay $300.

Joining the 410 sprint cars on this Saturday’s racing card will be the super late models in a 25-lap main event paying $1,500 to win. The rain date, if needed, will be 6 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 14, for sprint cars only.

A special edition National Open t-shirt, produced by Fast Tees, will be on sale this weekend. The Nace family will have various memorabilia from Jim Nace’s racing career on display inside the main gate. An autograph session including many of central Pennsylvania’s top sprint car drivers is also scheduled to take place behind the covered grandstand 5:30-6 p.m.

In recent years, race fans, teams, and officials have come to call the National Open “The Nace Race.” The 2014 edition marks the fifth straight year the race is named in memory of Nace, who died in November 2009 following a seven-year battle with cancer.

Pat Cannon of Etters, who joined the late Maynard Yingst of Linglestown as only the second driver to win three consecutive National Opens with a victory in last year’s race, will be seeking his first win of 2014 in the Sept. 13 event.

Fred Rahmer of Salfordville, who turned in a thrilling second-place finish in last year’s race before retiring from driving at the end of the season, is the track’s only five-time winner of the Open. Rahmer’s victories in the Open occurred in 1995, 1996, 1997, 1999 and 2000. Todd Shaffer of Millerstown is second on the Open career win list with four championships in 1993, 1994, 2001 and 2008.

Yingst’s wins in the Open occurred in 1983, 1984, and 1985. Other past repeat winners include Greg Hodnett of Thomasville (1998, 2004, 2007), Lance Dewease of Fayetteville (2002, 2009, 2010) and Don Kreitz Jr. of Sinking Spring (1986 and 1992).

Single-time winners of the Open include Dave Blaney of Cortland, Ohio (1987); Keith Kauffman of Mifflintown (1988); Doug Wolfgang of Sioux Falls, S.D. (1989); Sammy Swindell of Bartlett, Tenn. (1990); Johnny Mackison Jr. of York (1991); Stevie Smith of Broken Arrow, Okla. (2003); Lucas Wolfe of Mechanicsburg (2005); and Chad Layton of Harrisburg (2006).

The National Open will mark the third appearance of the season by the 410 sprint cars at Selinsgrove Speedway. This year’s previous races were won by Blane Heimbach of Selinsgrove (March 23 Season Opener) and Brent Marks of Myerstown (July 6 PA Speedweek Finale).

Hodnett Wins Fourth Port Royal Tuscarora 50, Lafferty Earns Port Track Title

Dave Leidy gets econo late main

9/6/14

Port Royal – Greg Hodnett of Thomasville made a bold first lap, thread the needle move to take the lead in Saturday’s 47th annual Tuscarora 50 for 410 sprints at Port Royal Speedway to trump the field for the fourth 50 checkers of his career worth over $13,000.

Hodnett started fourth in the deep field that was whittled down from 41 entries in the All Stars event, with Danny Holtgraver and Lynton Jeffrey on the front row for the green flag.

And when the field roared down the frontchute into the first turn, Hodnett hung with his high line around the top and blasted to the outside of Pittsburgh’s Holtgraver as he came off of the second corner.

With Holtgraver racing just a car length or so behind pacesetter Jeffrey, Hodnett first got alongside Holtgraver and then weaved his No. 27 through the hole between the pair of leaders to drop to the inside of Jeffrey as the pair raced toward the backstretch scoreboard.

A battle of wills then found Hodnett throttling deep under Jeffrey as the pair entered the third turn to force Jeffrey up the track and give himself control of the event as the first lap was recorded.

A yellow flag regrouped the field with six laps down for debris on the backstretch, finding Hodnett holding sway over Jeffrey, Holtgraver, sixth starter Dale Blaney and eighth starter Dave Blaney.

The Blaney brothers prior to that time had blasted with relative ease into the top five while slinging around the top of the track.

The restart saw Dale Blaney overtake Holtgraver and then Jeffrey with eight down to take over second while brother Dave worked into third on the same circuit with 10th starter Stevie Smith now up to fourth.

Hodnett entered the rear of the field with 11 laps completed chased by Dale Blaney and Smith who was up to third.

It took until the 20th circuit for Smith to motor by Dale Blaney for second as the field negotiated heavy lapped traffic and shortly thereafter the lap 25 mandatory break for refueling reset the field.

However by this time, the track had begun to develop a strip laden with rubber around the inside of the oval due to tire wear, taking the edge off of the final 25 tours of the event.

Hodnett restarted with a pair of lapped cars separating himself from Smith, Dale Blaney, ninth starter Lance Dewease and Holtgraver.

The top five would continue running in that order until very near the end of the event when Dale Blaney’s motor began to sour, dropping him backward dramatically.

It was at that point that Dewease took over third, where he would finish, followed by Holtgraver and Lucas Wolfe.

Hodnett’s margin of victory in the prestigious event was 2.053 seconds over Friday night winner Stevie Smith.

The Thomasville speedster previously scored Tuscarora 50 laurels in 1998 and 2004 while driving for Bob Stewart in the No. 12 and again in 2009 while at the wheel of the No. 22 for Jim and Sandy Kline.

His 2014 victory tied him atop the Tuscarora 50 all time win list with four victories, joining other four time champions Dewease, Fred Rahmer and Doug Wolfgang.

The victory was a career first in the event for Hodnett’s current car owner Mike Heffner, who called the Tuscarora 50 checkers the biggest of his car ownership career.

Sixth through 10th in the event went to Ryan Smith, Blane Heimbach, Mike Erdley, Rick Lafferty and Brent Marks.

Lafferty closed the night by claiming the 2014 sprint car track title by a scant 10-point margin over Erdley.

Heats for the field went to Hodnett, Lafferty, Jeffrey and Dewease with Rodney Westhafer scoring the B Main.

Chad Layton earned a provisional starting spot in the event as the highest driver in Port Royal points who was running at the end of the B Main but who failed to qualify.

As the highest finishing Port Royal regular who failed to qualify in the B, Logan Wagner earned the $500 16th annual Will Gamble Memorial Determination Award in honor of the late speedway enthusiast.

Joey Hershey earned over $350 in honor of late speedway supporter Al Battista for crossing the feature finish line as the lowest finishing Port Royal regular in the 50 field.

Dale Blaney earned $300 for the Packer’s Concessions Fast Time Award after positing a lap in time trials of 16.776 seconds.

Dave Leidy led all 15 laps of the 355 econo late model feature with Andrew Yoder finishing second.

Trent Brenneman trailed Leidy for nearly the entire race before close racing quarters on the final lap found him yielding to Yoder for the second spot.

Brenneman rode home third followed by Eric Irvin and Tim Krape.

Krape sealed the 2014, inaugural track title for the new division.

Heats for the econos went to Krape and Shaun Miller.

LINCOLN SPEEDWAY

Abbottstown, PA

UPCOMING SHOWS:

Sat., September 13, 2014 (Time Trials @ 7 PM) – 40TH ANNUAL LAWRENCE CHEVROLET SPORTSMAN 100 for Super Sportsman, plus 358 Late Models

LINCOLN LOSES TO RAIN; CHASE DIETZ CLAIMS FIRST TRACK TITLE IN 358 SPRINTS;

Night #2 of Trail-Way/Lincoln 358 Sprint Shootout postponed to September 2oth;

PASS Racesaver 305 Sprints added to September 20th show

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 9/6/2014 – Lincoln Speedway gave it the ole’ college try Saturday, running in the track after a mid-afternoon rainfall and sitting through a lightning delay as the three divisions of race cars were getting ready to come out for warm-ups.

But persistent rainfall coupled with another band of rain off to the west forced promoters to cancel Saturday’s program shortly after 7:00 p.m.

Because Saturday’s event was to be the final points race of the season, Chase Dietz locked up his first-ever 358 sprint car track title over 2013 track champ Niki Young, who finished 95 points behind. Had the race been run, Dietz would have had to finish 18th or better to claim the title. Third through fifth in season points were Chandler Leiby, Matt Campbell, and lady driver Brie Hershey. Another female driver, Ashley Cappetta, finished the season sixth in points.

The second leg of the Trail-Way/Lincoln Shootout was postponed to the next 358 sprint car show on September 20th, and the PA Sprint Series Racesaver 305 sprints will make up their portion of the program on the same date (9/20).

Lincoln swings back in action next Saturday night, September 13th, with the 40TH ANNUAL LAWRENCE CHEVROLET SPORTSMAN 100 for the Super Sportsman, plus 358 Late Models. Gates will open at 5 PM, with super sportsman time trials scheduled to start at 7 PM.

McCLELLAND SCORES EIGHTH TRAIL-WAY WIN OF THE YEAR IN 358 SPRINTS;

Hanover, PA (09/05/14) – “We got lucky again.”

So say a lot of winners in victory lane. But Brad McClelland was right.

McClelland drew the pole for the first leg of the Trail-Way/Lincoln 358 Shootout, and led every lap of Friday night’s 25-lap feature event.

“The track was outstanding…the best it’s been all year,” said the Central PA 358 point series leader after scoring his eighth Trail-Way win of the year, “We’ve had a real good season, and my crew always has an awesome car for me to race.”

The only issue McClelland had to deal with was lapped traffic through the first 18 non-stop laps, and even they didn’t seem to bother him.

“The lapped cars were real good,” said McClelland, “This one was easy tonight.”

McClelland’s final margin of victory over second-place Mike Bittinger was 2.69 seconds.

Cody Fletcher, ninth-starting Jeff Rohrbaugh (hard charger), and Jeff Halligan completed the top five.

The only caution of the event came out on lap 19 for Shane Smith, who slowed on the front stretch and came to a stop in turn one. During the caution, Isaac Sneeringer pulled to the infield.

Heats for the 16 “358” sprinters were won by Zach Euculano and Randy Whisler.

Picking up his fifth straight personal win, Tyler Walton came from eighth starting spot to win both the 600cc micro-sprint feature and the Path Valley/Trail-Way Mid-Summer Shootout.

Walton, who also won the Path Valley event last Saturday night, took the lead from Arron Spahr on lap 15 and led the rest of the way, crossing 1.97 seconds ahead of Spahr at the finish.

Third through fifth were Travis Scott, ninth-starting Brad Weber, and Bo Gordon.

Weber’s fourth-place finish was good enough to earn the 2014 Trail-Way 600cc micro-sprint title and second place overall in the Shootout.

Third through fifth in the Shootout itself were Anthony Macri, Jim Young, and Spahr.

Qualifiers for the 21 micros were won by Young, David Holbrook, and Alyson Dietz.

Harlon Leppo, in his first Trail-Way appearance of the year, started on the pole and led every lap of the 20-lap Central PA Legends feature.

Hard charger Lucas Montgomery came from tenth starting spot to finish second, with Chris McKinney, Travis McClelland, and Bob Stough rounding out the top five.

Heats for the 18 Legends were won by McClelland and Montgomery.

Kyle Rohrbaugh claimed his second win of the year in the 15-lap limited stock feature.

Rohrbaugh started tenth, took the lead from Justin Oberlin in a three-wide battle for the lead in turn four of lap seven, and held off Kenny Startzman by 1.06 seconds at the finish.

Third through fifth were 12th-starting Matt Chronister, 14th-starting Shane Miller, and Oberlin.

Qualifiers for the 18 limited stocks were won by Shannon Weaver and Jeff Foster.

Next Friday (9/12), Trail-Way will host the 358 Sprint Cars for the $2,000 to win Trone Outdoor Championship. Also on the schedule are the Limited Stocks, Street Stocks, and Mason-Dixon 270cc Micro Sprints. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. and racing begins at 7:30 p.m.

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

Stevie Smith Claims Port Royal All Star Night Before The Tuscarora 50

Point Chase Tighter Than Ever For Lafferty, Erdley, Layton And Heimbach

9/5/14

Port Royal – Stevie Smith overtook Doug Esh and drove to his second career Night Before The Tuscarora 50 sprint car victory on Friday night at Port Royal Speedway, worth $5,000.

A native of Hanover, Smith’s first win in the event was back in 2010 while his All Stars win on Friday night gave him an even dozen in the all time Port Royal record books.

In the 20-lap super late model main, Selinsgrove’s Dylan Yoder became the first repeat winner of the season in the division, scoring the victory in the final show of the year at the track for the super stock cars.

Doug Esh and Danny Holtgraver took the All Star Circuit of Champions Sprints feature green from the front row in what would end up being a 30-lap non-stop feature event.

Esh was holding sway over the field when Smith got by Holtgraver for second on the eighth tour as the front-runners negotiated heavy traffic at the rear of the field.

Lancaster’s Esh, in his first night back after a nasty crash last Saturday night at the track, began struggling with the lapped traffic and that’s all it took for Smith to go out in front with 11 laps completed.

As Esh began slipping backward, Holtgraver went into second on the 13th tour and began giving chase of the new leader.

With Smith on the bottom and middle grooves, Holtgraver began slinging his No. 10H around the high side of the speedway and with 10 to go the Pittsburgh pilot appeared ready to overtake Smith for the lead.

And indeed on a few occasions he was able to draw alongside the leader’s No. 51 but Smith was just good enough on the bottom of the track to keep pace with Holtgraver during his challenges before getting away with his lead during the final five circuits.

Monday’s Labor Day winner, Danny Dietrich surged around Holtgraver with a lap to go but ran out of time to run down Smith for the win.

Holtgraver held on for third followed by 10th starter Dale Blaney and Blane Heimbach.

Sixth through 10th went to 13th starter Greg Hodnett, 19th starter Lance Dewease, Brent Marks, Mike Erdley and Esh.

Heats for the 41-car field went to Curt Stroup, Marks, Lynton Jeffrey and Chad Layton.

Lucas Wolfe set quick time in qualifications with a lap of 16.258 seconds and won the B Main.

Esh earned the pole for the feature by winning the dash.

With the final race looming in the 2014 point chase as the Saturday night Tuscarora 50, Rick Lafferty leads the standings by 15 markers over Mike Erdley, with Layton 30 out of the lead followed by Heimbach who is just 65 back.

Last week’s feature winner, Justin Kann led the first three laps of the super late model main before fourth starter Dylan Yoder took over.

Shortly after he got control, Yoder’s pace was slowed for a caution period but he was clearly in control for the balance of the event.

Instead, racing for second, third and four spots heated up with Kann spinning out of second at the halfway point.

Rance Garlock inherited second for the restart and then held off Mitch Hack for the spot.

Chad Hollenbeck was fourth followed by Mike Lupfer.

Sixth through 10th went to Andy Haus, Tim Wilson, Jim Yoder, Brett Schadel and Jeff Rine.

By virtue of starting the feature event, Shermansdale’s Lupfer officially sealed up the 2014 track title for the division.

It is the pilots first Port Royal track crown.

Heats for the 26-car field went to Kann, Lupfer and Garlock with Waylon Wagner taking the consolation race.

Fast time in time trials was set by Dylan Yoder with a lap of 18.688 seconds.

Port Royal Point Title On The Line In Tuscarora 50 Races Friday & Saturday!

Trio Should Fight It Out, Four Drivers In Contention

9/1/14

Port Royal – The advent of this weekend’s Tuscarora 50 sprint car races at Port Royal Speedway will determine who is the 2014 track titlist and the title fight couldn’t be any closer as the races draw near.

After Monday’s Labor Day Classic for the sprints at Port Royal, both Rick Lafferty and Chad Layton are tied for the point lead with 4,825 markers.

Both men have a win at the historic oval already this season.

Harrisburg’s Layton is already a two-time Port Royal rack champion, having scored the laurels for Middleswarth racing in 2010 and in 2012.

If he would be able to take over the point lead and claim the crown with the conclusion of this weekend’s All Stars Sprints races, it would be an unprecedented eighth career track title for his car owner, Dave Middleswarth.

Aside from Layton’s two titles, the Middleswarth stables garnered crowns with Keith Kauffman as their driver at the track in 1999, 2001, 2002, 2004 and 2007.

Middleswarth already holds the distinction of being the most successful car owner in the sprint car track title category at the oval and a triumph by Layton this weekend would just add to the team’s legacy.

Lafferty, a self-owned racer from Pennington, Nj., is looking for a first ever track title however after taking over the point lead from Mike Wagner at the track on August 30.

It would be quite a feather in Lafferty’s career cap to tie up the crown with the running of the 50 races this Friday and Saturday.

Traditionally, Lafferty has performed better than Layton on slick track surfaces like the one that the Port Royal oval usually produces over the course of the 50 events.

And not to be counted out at this point is 2006 track champion Mike Erdley of Elizabethville, who sits just 50 points out of the lead coming into the weekend.

Erdley too sometimes excels at slick track surfaces and on the heels of his car owner’s just released retirement announcement effective at the end of the season, the Cinderella story of the Tuscarora 50 weekend at Port Royal lays in his hands.

A 50-point deficit is certainly not insurmountable as the point lead has changed by at least that margin during each of the last two races contested so a come-from-behind title for the mild-mannered, Dauphin County pilot Erdley and his owner Randy Lisi is a very legitimate possibility.

Defending track champion Blane Heimbach currently sits fourth in season points, at a 120-point deficit to the tied leaders.

A bad night by any or all of the previously mentioned trio could thrust Heimbach right back to the top of the standings, a position he held for over three-quarters of the 2014 season since it began in April.

The All Star Circuit of Champions Sprints will be in attendance for both nights of 50 weekend action as part of the climax of the 160th annual Juniata County Fair that surrounds the speedway.

Friday’s Night Before The 50 sprint car program will pay the winner $5,000 to win the 30 lap feature event and $400 just to start.

Packer’s Concessions of Centre Hall is sponsoring a $200 fast time award for the fastest Night Before The 50 qualifier in time trials.

The super late models are also on the Friday card with group time trials slated in warm ups.

Saturday’s 47th annual running of the Tuscarora 50 will see a total event purse of some $42,000 posted for the sprinters including a paid B Main.

Sponsored by Ramsey’s Car Washes, the Tuscarora 50 main event will pay $12,000 to win and $500 just to start.

Each lap of the Tuscarora 50 will pay $25 to lead and the Packer’s Concessions fast timer for the 50 will receive a $300 cash award.

The econo lates will join the 410 sprints for the 50, racing in a special, rare, topless event.

Admission to the Juniata County Fair that surrounds the speedway is FREE both nights with adult race general admission priced at $25 on Friday and $30 on Saturday. Students ages 12 – 18 are admitted to the races for JUST $5 both nights.

Camping is available adjacent to the fairgrounds for the economical flat price of only $30, regardless of length of stay.

Gates for both racing programs will open at 4 pm.

Dietrich Excites For Port Royal Labor Day Sprint Car $4,000 Victory

Yoder and Moist claim stock cars

9/1/14

Port Royal – Danny Dietrich of Gettysburg won the 63rd annual Labor Day Classic for 410 sprint cars at Port Royal Speedway on Monday afternoon, becoming the third and final leader in the event that saw a total of four lead changes.

In the 355 econo late feature it was Middleburg’s Andrew Yoder who dominated for the victory to record his fourth oval win of the season while Andrew Moist came out on top in the four cylinder main event.

A draw put two-time Labor Day Champion on the pole for the start of the 25-lap Classic event with two-time Port Royal 2014 winner Brent Marks alongside. Just behind in row two was Dietrich and four-time and defending Classic champion Lance Dewease.

Just as the feature green unfurled rains hit the third and fourth corner of the speedway, causing an abrupt stoppage of the race.

After a delay of about an hour, Hodnett took the lead over a fast starting Dewease when action got underway.

A caution flag regrouped the field with three laps down and on the restart Lance Dewease powered around Hodnett to take control.

Dewease’s run at the front looked at first solid but quickly found him struggling on the daytime surface and Hodnett drove underneath in the first and second corner to reclaim control on the 10th tour.

A lap later, the only driver who was running the top of the track, Dietrich motored by Dewease for second and began running down a stellar-running Hodnett.

Dietrich was right at home using the high outside, ever-slickening groove, rooster-tailing at times as he chased Hodnett through traffic.

And then with a little more than eight laps to go he surged to Hodnett’s outside as the pair ran down the backchute and shot through the middle entering the third corner to take over Hodnett’s bottom groove and the lead.

After getting control, Dietrich continued to take chances with his lead and nearly gave up control after a brush with the outside wall but he soon went back to the bottom to maintain his advantage.

With a lap to go, a final yellow set up a restart but Dietrich pulled away on the restart for the prestigious $4,000 victory, his first ever at the track and seventh overall of the season.

Hodnett was second followed by Dewease, Marks and Mike Erdley.

Sixth through 10th went tot Chad Layton, Dave Ely, Blane Heimbach, Logan Wagner and Billy Dietrich.

Heats for the 24-car field went to Dietrich, Hodnett and Marks.

Rick Lafferty entered the race with the season point lead over Layton but after a finish of 16th, both he and Layton are now tied at the top of the chase for the title with Erdley just 50 points back.

Andrew Yoder wired the field for the 15-lap econo late model main.

Jason Nace trailed early but gave way to one-time winner Dave Leidy with under five laps to go .

Nace held on to third with a hard charging, 12th starter Tim Krape finishing fourth and Todd Snook ending up fifth.

Heats for the 14-car field went to Leidy and Ralph Morgan Jr.

A 27-car field of four cylinder stock cars competed on the Labor Day clay and after working forward the entire 15-lap main from the ninth starting spot, Andrew Moist powered into the lead with just two laps left in the race.

The event was riddled with caution flags while also producing exciting action.

Ricky Weaver Jr. led from the outset before Ryan Peer took control on the seventh tour.

Weaver went back out in front with five laps left and then fell victim to Peer again with three to go before Moist upended them all for the victory.

Lee Zook, Weaver, Peer and Cale Martin rounded out the top five finshers.

Heats went to Josh Frantz, Weaver and Terry Hartlouv.

Williams Grove Loses Sunday Mains To Rain, Make Up Dates Announced

9/1/14

Mechanicsburg - The 410 sprint and super sportsman features were rained out at Williams Grove Speedway on Sunday night, August 31.

After all qualifying had been completed and the features were ready to roll, rains hit forcing cancellation of the balance of the program.

Because all qualifying had been completed, no rain checks will be issued.

Thus, make up features for the sportsman and sprints have now been slated.

The super sportsman feature will be run this Friday, September 5 at 7:30 pm along with the already scheduled program of 358 sprints and topless limited late models.

The 410 sprint main has been scheduled to be part of the full racing program of 358 sprints and 410 sprints coming up at the track on Friday, September 12.

Moments before the start of the 25-lap 410 Sprint Car feature on Sunday night, a torrential rainstorm struck the track. After a 15-minute wait speedway officials postponed the 410 Sprint Car main and the Super Sportsman feature.

The 410 Sprint Car starting field was entering the third turn when a driving storm struck the speedway.

Before the rain’s arrival fans watched six qualifying races. Bill Stine, Ryan Smith and Rodney Westhafer won the heats for the 25 410 Sprint cars. The preliminary races for the 24 Super Sportsman went to Rich Eichelberger, Scott Geesey and Mike Enders.

Barger Holds Off Hodnett For Sprints Win

Snook and Goodwin claim companion stock car events

8/30/14

Port Royal – Justin Kann of Hesston took just shy of $4,000 out of Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night, claiming the annual Butch Renninger Memorial for super late models as the kickoff race to the 160th annual Juniata County Fair.

In the 410 sprint main, Justin Barger of Montrose, Ny., recorded his first ever payday at the track after holding off Greg Hodnett.

The 15-lap econo late main was taken by Todd Snook for his third win of the season while Mike Goodwin scored the xtreme stock main event.

Jeff Miller Sr. started on the pole of the 33-lap Renninger Memorial, run in honor of the late three-time track champion.

Miller took the lead over third starter Kann when the race got started and was being chased by Kann when he entered the rear of the field on the 12th tour.

Miller slipped a bit on the turn two cushion amid heavy traffic on the 14th tour and that was all it took for Kann to take advantage and bolt into the lead.

Up to that point, Miller pocketed $429 in lap money.

A lap after giving up the lead to Kann, Miller looped his car in the second turn, bringing out the races first caution flag.

Kann restarted with Andy Haus and 12th starter Brett Schadel in pursuit.

Kann pulled his No. 66 away from any challengers when action resumed and appeared home free with four laps to go when the final yellow of the event unfurled for a stopped Eric Zembower.

By this time Mike Lupfer was up to third but no one had anything for Kann over the final two miles.

Including lap money and the fast time award, Kann walked away from the race with $3,993 plus other prizes and contingencies.

It was his first career win at the track and he became the 146th driver to claim a late model main at the oval.

Andy Haus rode home third followed by Mike Lupfer, Tim Smith Jr. and Schadel.

Sixth through 10th went to Patrick Bryner, Mitch Hack, Jason Schmidt, Waylon Wagner and Scott Flickinger.

Heats for the 21-car field went to Hack, Wagner and Haus with Kann setting fast time in qualifications with a lap of 18.416 seconds.

Barger started on the pole of the 410 sprint main and was chased by Nate Snyder when the race began but only two laps could be recorded before Lance Dewease slowed in the second corner, bringing out the yellow flag.

On the restart sixth starter Greg Hodnett made a two car pass of Rodney Westhafter and Davey Sammons to zoom into third.

Barger began lapping cars on the 10th tour and a lap later Hodnett bolted under Snyder for the second spot.

Hodnett was in hot pursuit of Barger, mounting a challenge when the final caution of the race occurred.

Hodnett stayed close to Barger on the restart and made attempts at low side moves but Barger was smooth and confident on the cushion to the finish, again entering traffic with less than five laps to go but clearing the cars just quick enough to keep Hodnett at arm’s length to the checkers.

Rick Lafferty rode home third and took over the division point lead followed by Snyder and Sammons.

Chad Layton was sixth followed by Brock Zearfoss, Brent Marks, Westhafer and Ryan Taylor.

Heats for the 28 cars in action went to Barger, Snyder and Sammons with Mark Zimmerman taking the consolation.

The second heat race was marred by a vicious crash in the first turn that saw Doug Esh slam the inside barrier and Mike Wagner smash into the outside wall before bouncing back onto the track and impacting Esh hard. Dave Hahn was also involved.

All drivers seemingly escaped injury and Wagner crawled into his son Logan’s car for the consolation in an effort to keep his title hopes alive as the point leader coming into the event.

But the start of the consolation saw Curt Stroup clout the inside turn two barrier before glancing back onto the track with Wagner making more hard impact, bringing out another red flag.

Wagner was being treated at an area medical center as of press time.

Devin Hart led the first five laps of the econo late feature before Snook took over.

Hart held on over the final 10 laps for the second spot at the finish followed by Eric Irvin, Tim Krape and Andrew Yoder.

Twin heats went to Hart and Krape.

Bill Powell led the first lap of the xtreme stock main before sixth starter Mike Goodwin took over, looking like a man on a mission as he throttled around the outside of the track for control.

Goodwin pulled away early but near the finish had Powell glued to his bumper for the final few circuits.

It was Goodwin’s second career win in the division at the oval.

Bob Bussey rode home third followed by Jason Zook and Jason Davis.

Powell unofficially claimed the 2014 xtreme stock track title with his run of second.

Chandler Leiby becomes 12th different ’14 winner in 358 sprints; Russ Mitten leads ‘em all in super sportsman

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 8/30/2014 – Brian Montieth used lapped traffic to his advantage to grab the race lead and move into sole possession of sixth place on the all-time Lincoln win list after scoring his 43rd career win on John Gleim Excavating Night in the Pigeon Hills Saturday night.

Handicapping placed the Premier Auto Works/Auto Locator 11th for the start. Outside front row starter Ryan Wilson led the first lap before a red flag for a flipping Freddie Rahmer on the back stretch stopped the action. The rest of the 25-lap feature went non-stop.

Wilson led the first 14 laps before sixth-starting Steve Owings took over. Montieth, putting on his normal driving clinic, advanced to third by lap nine and followed Owings past Wilson into second on the same lap. Montieth continued to dog the leader until the two hit lapped traffic, driving under Owings in turns one and two of lap 21.

Once in front, Montieth drove through heavy lapped traffic to his third Lincoln win of the year.

“Fred Putney did an awesome job here,” said Montieth in victory lane, “We had almost 100 cars here and the track was still raceable. That’s really unheard of here in Central Pennsylvania. He does an excellent job week-in and week-out trying to do everything he can so we’re competitive as a race group. He’s definitely one of the best.”

“It is tough here every week,” continued Montieth, “It doesn’t matter where you start. You can start front row, or start 20th, and everybody’s got a chance to win. That’s why I think that Kasey Kahne race is going to be a good deal. You don’t need a ton of motor and anybody can win here from any point, so I think it’s going to be a good show. Short track racing is the best.”

“I want to congratulate the Krimes family,” said Montieth, “They absolutely deserve the track title. He finished second in points a couple of times and I’m sure happy for them. The run he had tonight show why he’s the track champion.”

By taking a green in warm-ups, Krimes claimed his first-ever Lawrence Chevrolet track title. And he did it in style, coming from 19th starting spot to finish fifth.

Owings and Wilson crossed second and third, followed by eighth-starting Cory Haas.

Sixth through tenth were Matt Boland, Billy Dietrich, Jim Siegel, Danny Dietrich, and Robbie Kendall.

Heats for the 27 “410” Sprints were won by Kyle Moody, Montieth, and Danny Dietrich, with Krimes winning the consolation.

Chandler Leiby, grandson of Lincoln co-promoter Bob Leiby and whose family is close friends with race sponsor John Gleim, came from eighth starting spot to claim his first win of the year in the 20-lap “358” sprint car feature. It was Leiby’s second career Lincoln win.

Outside front row starter Denny Gross led the first seven laps before giving way to C.J. Tracy. Leiby was up to third by the end of the third lap, and took the lead from Tracy on lap 12. Following a lengthy red flag when two cars got hooked together in turn two of lap 13, Leiby held off Kevin Nouse, C.J. Tracy, Niki Young, and points leader Chase Dietz over the final seven laps.

Heats for the 31 “358” Sprints were won by Matt Campbell, Nouse, and Doug Hammaker, with Zach Euculano winning the consolation.

Russ Mitten started on the outside of the front row and led every lap of the 25-lap super sportsman feature.

Scott Geesey advanced from fourth to second on the first lap and drove on the back bumper of Mitten the entire way, with sixth-starting Frankie Herr, Mike Enders, and hard charger Kevin Nouse (who came from 11th starting spot) rounding out the top five.

Mitten’s final margin of victory in the first of three straight appearances by the super sportsman leading up to the Lawrence Chevrolet Sportsman 100 on September 13th was .81 seconds.

Heats for the 37 Super Sportsman won by Herr, Mitten, Nouse, and Rich Eichelberger, with Steve Wilbur and Chad Trout winning twin consolations.

Lincoln swings back in action next Saturday night, September 6th, at 7 PM with the Keizer Aluminum Wheels 358 Sprinters competing in their final point race of 2014. The Super Sportsman and PASS RaceSaver (305) Sprints will round out the 3-division open-wheeled program. Gates will open at 5 PM.

McCLELLAND SURVIVES CLOSE CALL TO WIN 7TH IN TRAIL-WAY 358 SPRINTS;

STEVE STORRIE CLAIMS 305 SPRINT FEATURE;

DAN FURMAN WINS 6TH IN STREET STOCKS; ROLAND BROWN CLASSIC CAR WINNER;

ACMS 600 STOCK MICROS TO DREW RITCHEY

Hanover, PA (08/29/14) – No one in attendance, including track officials, knew how he did it.

Brad McClelland wasn’t sure himself. But somehow, McClelland squeezed between two cars sitting sideways in turn four of lap 12 to hold onto the lead and go on to claim his seventh win of the year in the 25-lap “358” sprint car feature at Trail-Way Speedway Friday night.

“I can feel for Tony Stewart,” said McClelland in victory lane, “I simply didn’t see those guys in turn four. I heard ‘caution’ on the raceceiver, but I didn’t see them until the last second.”

“It was a little time-consuming,” McClelland said of the feature, “But stuff like that happens when you get more cars on a short track.”

One of the crashes that held up the race was a four-car melee in turns three and four of lap ten, which resulted in Austin Kirby flying into the catch fence and landing between the outside wall and the catch fence itself. Kirby’s car knocked four poles down and it took nearly a half-hour to get Kirby’s car back onto the race track to haul to the pits.

A redraw placed McClelland third for the start. McClelland caught outside front row starter Chris Arnold for second on the first lap, and wrestled the lead from polesitter Dwight Leppo on lap six.

The near-miss for McClelland came six laps later, when Seth Kearchner and Tyler Buchenauer got together and spun in turn four. The two sideways cars nearly blocked the track, and while most driver went to the extreme top or extreme bottom to miss them, McClelland was the first car to approach the spinners and drove between them, despite the fact that it didn’t look like there was enough room.

From there, McClelland drove to a 1.22-second win over runner-up Leppo, with Jeff Rohrbaugh, Randy Whisler, and Arnold completing the top five.

Sixth through tenth were visitor Jordan Givler, hard-charger Matt Campbell (who started 14th), Jeff Halligan, Buchenauer, and Cody Fletcher.

Heats for the season-high 19 “358” sprint cars were won by Halligan, Rohrbaugh, and Whisler.

Steve Storrie drove the Clair Wintermeyer #3W to the win in the 20-lap Pennsylvania Sprint Series “305” feature, the division’s first appearance at the TW in several years.

Storrie started sixth and caught polesitter and race-long leader Russ Hammaker at the flagstand to complete lap 14. He led the rest of the way, crossing 1.63 seconds ahead of Mark Watkins, with Eric Parker, Dalton Dietrich, and Tony Fiore rounding out the top five.

Hammaker crashed into the first-turn wall one lap after losing the race lead, and was done for the night.

Heats for the 15 PASS sprinters were won by Parker and Watkins.

The street stock championship was won by Dan Furman, his sixth Trail-Way win of the year.

Furman started third and raced the first seven laps with polesitter Eric Johnson for the runner-up spot until race leader Michael Goodwin lost his steering, slowed, and brought out the caution on lap eight. Johnson led from laps eight through 13 before Furman caught him in turns three and four and led the of the way, finishing 2.28 seconds ahead of Jeremy Stremmel, who lost the handle in the final turn and drove through the infield, back onto the track, and across the line.

Johnson, Cory Weishaar, and David Johnson completed the top five.

Qualifiers for the 12 street stocks were won by Eric Johnson and Goodwin.

Roland Brown bested younger brother Wes for the win in the 20-lap Classic Car feature.

The Browns made up the front row, and Roland led every lap except lap nine.

Third through fifth were Steve Clemo, Randy Doty (who started last), and Matt Wallace (who started next-to-last).

Heats for the 12 Classic Cars were won by the Browns.

Drew Ritchey picked up the win in the 15-lap ACMS 600 Stock Micro-Sprint feature.

Ritchey started third and took the lead from outside front row starter and race-long leader Alan Rhodes on lap seven. He paced the field the rest of the way, with Rhodes, Gunnar Layton, polesitter Sean Garman, and Logan Jones finishing second through fifth.

The lone qualifier for the seven ACMS micros was won by Rhodes.

Tomorrow (8/30), Trail-Way will hold a Junk Car Demolition Race. Also on the schedule are the Limited Stocks for a championship race, Figure 8, and Powder Puff. Gates open at 4 p.m. with racing beginning at 6 p.m.

Lucas Wolfe Claims Williams Grove Gunn Memorial 30 Years After Father Randy

Second generation driver also ties dad on all-time Grove win list

8/29/14

Mechanicsburg – Lucas Wolfe wired the field and held off Lance Dewease to claim victory in Friday night’s 30-lap, 32nd annual Jack Gunn Memorial for 410 sprint cars, worth $6,000.

Wolfe started second in the field and beat polesitter Don Kreitz Jr. to the punch at the start to take the lead.

Fourth starter Lance Dewease got by Kreitz for second on the sixth circuit and was trailing Wolfe within striking distance when he began working the backmarkers on the 11th tour.

Dewease crept even closer to the leader as the 13th lap was put in the books and he first took the lead with a swoop across the inside of the first and second turns as the front duo worked the 14th lap.

Wolfe zipped back around the outside to reclaim control seconds later and Dewease began regrouping for another run at Wolfe’s Zemco No. 1 racer.

Just after the 16th lap was recorded Dewease again drove low for the lead and came out in front with Wolfe again ready to reclaim the spot only this time the caution flag unfurled, settling the pace and the move for control.

Wolfe got an excellent restart when green reappeared and was well away from Dewease when another caution appeared with 18 laps down, this time for a collapsed front end on Danny Dietrich’s racer after hard contact with the outside frontstretch fence resulting from contact with Brent Marks as the pair battled for seventh spot.

Dewease got a better start behind Wolfe on the restart but Wolfe was still able to pull away and it took until there was just two laps to go for Dewease to get close enough again to mount a challenge, again not until after the leader was working lapped traffic.

But Wolfe was up to the challenge and took his 11th career victory at the track, in the Gunn Memorial, exactly 30 years after his father Randy Wolfe took the Gunn win in 1984.

Ironically, Lucas Wolfe’s 11th career Williams Grove win also tied him with his father Randy on the oval all-time win list.

Stevie Smith was third followed by Kreitz and Greg Hodnett.

Sixth through 10th went to 18th starter Alan Krimes, Doug Esh, Brent Marks, Brian Montieth and Cory Haas.

First round heats went to Montieth, Mike Wagner Sr. and Wolfe. Second round heats went to Ryan Wilson, Haas and Dietrich.

Kreitz earned the pole for the main by claiming the dash.

Smith set fast time over the 25-car field with a lap of 16.774 seconds.

Kevin Seigler led the first seven laps of the 15-lap street stock main before Doug Hoffman took over with eight down.

Hoffman held sway until a lap 12 restart when heavy pressure for the lead saw Jeff Haag go out in front for his fifth win of the season at the track.

Hoffman was second followed by Siegler, Craig Morgan and Dustin Hollinger.

Twin heats for the 21-car field went to Mike Zeigler Jr. and Jaynee Zeigler.

Hodnett, Dietrich and Montieth Stand Out Via Dirt Classic Podium Tracker

Inside Line Promotions - CATAWBA, N.C. (Aug. 28, 2014) - With only one month remaining until the inaugural Dirt Classic Presented by Kasey Kahne, a trio of Pennsylvania drivers have become standouts entering the $20,000-to-win event.

The Dirt Classic podium tracker has been keeping track of weekly results at Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown - the site of the Dirt Classic on Saturday, Sept. 27 - as well as at Williams Grove in Mechanicsburg and at Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal.

Greg Hodnett leads all Central Pennsylvania drivers with eight wins and 19 podium finishes.

"I think it's probably as smooth as sprint car racing can be," he said. "It takes a little bit of nothing to lose it. As of right now the guys are doing a good job and we're running decent. The way sprint car racing works one day you can look like a hero and the next day you look like a zero."

Hodnett, who is searching for his first win of the year at Lincoln Speedway, noted that the Dirt Classic is circled on the race calendar.

"Our month of money starts here in the next two weeks, which includes the Dirt Classic," he said. "We have some pretty big races."

Danny Dietrich ranks second on the Dirt Classic podium tracker with six wins, including a track-best three at Lincoln Speedway, and 12 podiums.

"I'm feeling pretty good," he said. "We found some issues and we're back to being 100 percent. I feel our team is one of the fastest teams at Lincoln right now. We have an advantage going there."

Dietrich has a provisional into the Dirt Classic feature by virtue of his qualifier win at Roaring Knob Motorsports Complex in Markleysburg, Pa., on June 1.

Brian Montieth has earned a trio of feature victories and 13 podium results this season. He has garnered two wins and three runner-up finishes at Lincoln Speedway this year.

"Lincoln is probably my most comfortable race track," he said. "It's our most consistent one. As long as we don't overthink it.

"For a short track I think (the Dirt Classic) is a very big event. You don't need a ton of motor to win at Lincoln. You can run Lincoln with a normal short track motor and win there. There's a lot of guys who don't run big cubic inches there because you don't need it. For $20,000 to win on a short track, it's huge. I think you'll see a lot of cars."

A half-dozen other drivers have also posted numerous wins and podium finishes in Central Pennsylvania this season as the region gears up for the inaugural Dirt Classic.

360/358 Sprint Car Challenge Race Replaces ARDC Midgets at SSP on Sunday, September 21

ARDC Sanction Dropped from Candy Bowl on Saturday, October 25 with Wingless Midgets Still on the Card

Newberrytown, PA (August 27, 2014) – The Inaugural Sprint Car Fall Classic on Sunday night, will now see a 360/358 Sprint Car Challenge race replacing the ARDC Midgets. The headliner that evening will be the 410 Super Sprint Cars along with a special appearance of the Sidewinder Sprint Cars.

The Super 410 Sprint Car feature will pay $3,500-to-win for the 25-lap feature event. Non-qualifiers for the A-Main feature will receive a complimentary non-transferrable entry fee ($50.00 value) for the Final Showdown to be held at SSP in November. For the Super Sprint Cars, mufflers WILL NOT be required and Hoosier Brand Spec Tires will be required on all four corners (same as the 2014 rules at Williams Grove, Lincoln and Port Royal Speedways). All other rules will follow the generally accepted rules for Sprint Cars at local weekly Central PA Sprint Car tracks (1400 pounds weight rule). Raceivers will be mandatory for all Sprint Cars.

The 358/360 Sprint Car feature will pay $2,000-to-win for the 20-lap feature event. The race will pay $200 to start. Non-qualifiers for the A-Main feature will receive a complimentary non-transferrable entry fee ($50.00 value) for the Final Showdown to be held at SSP in November. Mufflers WILL NOT be required. For all cars, the following tires are permitted - Hoosier Brand Spec Tires will be required on all four corners (same as the 2014 rules at Williams Grove, Lincoln and Trailways Speedways), URC2, MC@, or Selinsgrove track tire. All other rules of the Central PA 358 Sprint Cars will prevail for 358 cars this event. All cars competing may use ASCS top wing rule and the minimum weight for all cars with driver is 1,475 pounds. An event flyer with full purse may be found at www.sspracing.net.

The mutual decision to replace the ARDC Midgets on Sunday was a difficult choice for Todd Fisher, SSP owner and the ARDC representative Jerry Steward. “There are many good people within the organization that I respect and like. The ARDC group as a whole is very challenging to deal with and have some fundamental organization problems.” Fisher explained. “There are many reasons that have led to this decision. It was not a knee-jerk reaction.” The reasons include the numerous leadership changes over the past few seasons, instability in car count and other speedways being given special deals to run the ARDC Midgets. “I signed a sanction agreement in the Spring and have yet to have a returned copy signed by an ARDC representative returned to me. It is now the end of the summer. This is one of the many fundamental issues with the internal workings of the organization.”

The on-track action of wingless midget racing was never an issue other than the concern of the newly appointed scheduling director, Jerry Steward expressing his concern that “Drivers don’t want race on a horse@#&$ racetrack following the Sprint Cars and burn off four tires in one race.” That comment was the final straw that led to Fisher dropping the ARDC Midgets from the September 21 event. “Jerry and I both mutually agreed that it would not be in the best interest of anyone if he and the drivers felt that way in competing with the 410 Sprint Cars on the same card.” Even though Steward offered Fisher a “Special Deal for SSP,” Fisher declined to continue with the ARDC sanctioning.

The wingless Midgets will remain on the same card for the popular Candy Bowl X presented by J&K Salvage, just without the ARDC sanctioning. Purse details for the open competition midget event will be released in the near future.

Fisher concluded, “I hope that the ARDC group with its 75-year tradition of great racing can get its off-track act together. As a supporter of the group over the last 10 years and seeing many internal changes within the group, I wish them the best and we will see what the future between us and the group.”

Stillwaggon Holds Off Stutts For First Career Selinsgrove Win Frontrunners Escape 10 Car Crash In Early Laps

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Following a string of strong finishes at Selinsgrove Speedway in recent years, Robbie Stillwaggon of Burlington, N.J., scored his first career win at the Snyder County half-mile oval in Saturday night’s 25-lap 360 sprint car feature.

Stillwaggon, driving the Quality Auto Body No. 89, held off three-time winner TJ Stutts of Liverpool for the $2,000 victory and became the track’s eighth different 360 sprint car winner this season.

Jeff Rine of Danville wired the field in a brand-new race car for his fifth win of the year in the 30-lap super late model tune-up race. The victory marked the 90th of Rine’s career at the track. Steve Campbell of Danville was the night’s overall fast qualifier with a lap time of 18.996.

Nathan Long of Selinsgrove scored his third win of the season in the 15-lap pro stock feature, while Keith Bissinger of Orangeville made a last-lap pass by John Fowler Jr. of Montandon for his seventh win of the year in the 12-lap roadrunner race.

Selinsgrove Speedway will present the World of Outlaws Late Model Series National Open weekend Saturday, Aug. 30, and Sunday, Aug. 31. Saturday night’s preliminary race will feature the super late models in a 40-lap main event paying $8,000 to win along with pro stocks, followed by Sunday night’s 50-lap 16th annual Open paying $10,000 to win with 358 late models on the racing card. Gates will open at 4 p.m. with racing at 7 p.m. both nights.

Polesitter Matt Horst and second-place starter Joe Trenca dueled for the lead at the start of the sprint car feature. Trenca edged out Horst on the first lap for the lead and set a quick pace around the smooth, fast half-mile oval.

On the third lap, a 10-car melee unfolded in turn three, sidelining a number of drivers, including points leader and leading feature winner Mark Smith for the night. There were no injuries reported.

When the race resumed, Trenca led another lap as eighth-place starter Robbie Stillwaggon put in a bid for the front spot. After Stillwaggon made a pass for the lead, the caution flag unfurled for Jim Shuster in turn two. Trenca retained the lead for the restart until Horst drove by him and led the race through lap 10.

On the 11th circuit, Stillwaggon made the winning pass by Horst using the inside line coming off turn four. TJ Stutts, who started in the 10th position, showed a lot of speed in the second half of the race and powered into the runner-up spot on lap 16. With five laps to go, Cody Keller’s car stopped in turn four with a flat tire.

When the green flag waved, a chase to the checkered flag unfolded between Stillwaggon and Stutts. Stillwaggon took the win by just 1.4 seconds over Stutts, fourth-place starter Curt Michael, Horst, and ninth-place starter Mike Walter.

MOTHER NATURE GETS RARE WIN AT LINCOLN SPEEDWAY;

John Gleim Jr. Excavating Night headlines next weekends’ Labor Day Holiday Weekend Racing Program with Fireworks;

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 8/23/2014 – Persistent drizzle and rain late into the afternoon forced Lincoln Speedway promoters Don & Bob Leiby, and Alan Kreitzer, to cancel Saturday evening’s, August 23rd racing program of 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints, and All American Outlaws.

With the forecast of rain moving out of the Pigeon Hill’s area early afternoon, the usually determined Lincoln Speedway promoters were looking for every reason to get the show in. But a low-hanging cloud ceiling, drizzle and the occasional light rain shower continued into the afternoon despite the forecast and appearance on radar that the rain had moved out of the area. Throw in the near 100 percent humidity and Fred Putney and his crew just couldn’t get the racing surface prepared in a timely manner.

They finally pulled the plug on the evening’s racing program around 5 PM before the gates had officially opened.

Still yet to be determined will be when the 358 Sprint Trail-Way/Lincoln Speedway Shootout and Kids Big Wheel races will be rescheduled.

Next Saturday night, August 30th,Lincoln Speedway will celebrate Labor Day Holiday weekend with their Annual John Gleim Jr. Excavating Night featuring the Lawrence Chevrolet 410 Sprints, Keizer Aluminum Wheels 358 Sprints, and Super Sportsman. It will be the final point race for the 410 Sprints with Alan Krimes holding a 260 point lead over Jim Siegel, and 295 points over Brian Montieth, in the battle for the coveted 2014 track title. The evening’s activities will be capped off with a spectacular Summer-ending Fireworks display. Gates will open at 5:30 PM, with green flag getting underway at 7:30 PM.

NAPA AUTO PARTS & PIONEER POLE BUILDINGS JERSEY RUSH 4 A BIG SUCCESS. . . . . .

RYAN SMITH TOPS LUCAS WOLFE FOR FIRST EVERY 410 SPRINT WIN AS BILLY PAUCH COMES HOME THE MODIFIED FEATURE WINNER IN THE JERSEY RUSH 4

New Egypt, NJ . . . . . . . . .Twenty-six year old Ryan Smith of Kunkletown, PA scored his first career 410 sprint car win Tuesday night in the JERSEY RUSH 4 at the New Egypt Speedway. The event, sponsored by NAPA Auto Parts and Pioneer Pole Buildings, saw Billy Pauch hold off two late race challenges from Jimmy Blewett and Doug Manmiller to win the modified feature. A big crowd turned out for the fourth running of the Jersey RUSH with the final checkered flag falling at 10:25 PM.

Twenty-six sprint cars took part in time trials with Lance Dewease setting fast time with a time of 13.461. Heat race events were sponsored by Lentini Auto Salvage with $200 going to the winners that included Lucas Wolfe, Freddie Rahmer and Davey Sammons.

In the 30 lap Jersey Rush sprint feature, Ryan Smith took the lead at the drop of the green followed by Mark Smith and Freddie Rahmer. Smith quickly established a comfortable lead with JJ Grasso and Lucas Wolfe on the move to the front. On lap ten, the first caution was displayed for Joey Hershey who stopped in turn four. On the restart, Smith now had to contend with Mark Smith and two time Jersey Rush winner JJ Grasso. At the halfway mark, Ryan Smith was on top followed by Mark Smith, JJ Grasso, Freddie Rahmer and Lucas Wolfe.

By lap nineteen, the battle was now between Mark Smith and Grasso for second. On lap twenty-one, Grasso moved into second and began the task of chasing down Ryan Smith.

Following a lap twenty-three restart, Lucas Wolfe made a strong run and advanced to second, passing JJ Grasso going into turn one. With five laps remaining, Wolfe was reeling in Ryan Smith as slower traffic was now making the race very interesting. On lap twenty-seven, Wolfe pulled along-side of Smith but the pass was not going to be completed this time.

Smith pulled a two car length advantage but with two laps remaining, Wolfe was back in the hunt. With the white flag waving, Wolfe took another run for the lead but Ryan Smith was not to be denied his first 410 win and a $5,000 payday. Lucas Wolfe finished second, JJ Grasso third, Kyle Reinhardt was fourth with Freddie Rahmer making up the top five.

The three Lentini Auto Salvage Modified heats were won by Dominick Buffalino, Billy Pauch and Ryan Godown.

In the 30 lap modified feature, Neal Williams set the pace for the first two circuits with Billy Pauch taking the lead on lap three. Williams fought back to try and regain the lead but Pauch held on to the top spot. On lap eight Doug Manmiller moved into second and by lap twelve, Manmiller was challenging Pauch for the lead.

At the halfway point, Pauch and Manmiller were at the front of the pack with Jimmy Blewett third, Williams fourth and Keith Hoffman. On lap eighteen, Blewett moved into second and now it was up to him to take the win away from Pauch. With five laps remaining, the top five was Pauch, Blewett, Manmiller, , Keith Hoffman and Duane Howard.

In the final two closing laps, Blewett caught Pauch and offered several challenges but at the drop of the checkered flag, the $3,000 payoff went to Pauch. Blewett was second with Doug Manmiller third, Keith Hoffman was fourth and Duane Howard fifth.

Steve Wilbur, Jay Fannasy and Foster won the heats for the 28 entries. Herr was the consolation winner and received the Sprint Aces Hard Charger award.

Randy Croop started second in the Credit Connection Auto Sales 358 Late Models. Croop was in front by the end of lap one with Sam Rial, Al Cheney, Travis Mease, and Cam Zeigler giving chase. By the fifth lap Croop had a straightaway lead over Rial while Zeigler advanced to third. When Zeigler wrestled second from Rial, Croop had a 3.1 second lead.

Charlie Schaffer, the 12th-place starter, challenged Cam Zeigler for second. The duo of Zeigler and Schaffer narrowed Randy Croop's lead. Despite their hard-fought fight for second, the lead duo continued to shrink Croop's advantage.

Charlie Schaffer captured second place as leader Randy Croop received the white flag. Croop maintained his lead and the Berwick driver won his second of the year eight lengths ahead of Charlie Schaffer. Cam Zeigler was third, Jake Jones finished in fourth and Sam Rial was fifth.

Heats for the 17-car field went to Dan Zechman and Rial. Schaffer received the Artwerks Hard Charger award.

The front row of the 15 lap Aquafun Pools Street Stock main featured Dustin Hollinger and Doug Hoffman. Hoffman and Hollinger were side-by-side through the first lap. One lap later Hoffman, Hollinger and Greg Diehl were three-wide in the fight for the lead. Doug Hoffman held the lead with Dustin Hollinger, Greg Diehl, Steven Dove, and Eric Tripp in close pursuit.

The first of two cautions came on lap six. Doug Hoffman continued to set the pace with Dustin Hollinger making frequent challenges.

A lap nine caution slowed the race. Dustin Hollinger used the restart to take over the lead. The top five of Hollinger, Hoffman, Greg Diehl, Jeff Haag, and Mike Buckley were in a tight pack. Hollinger, from Palmyra, could not shake Hoffman; Hoffman remaining a length behind.

Dustin Hollinger turned back the challenges of Doug Hoffman. Hollinger won his second of 2014 by two lengths over Doug Hoffman. Greg Diehl was third with Jeff Haag in fourth and Mike Buckley finished fifth.

Hollinger and Buckley won the preliminaries for the 20 entries. Jeff Haag was named the Artwerks Hard Charger winner.

KELLER BREAKS SMITH'S WINNING STREAK IN 360 SPRINT CARS

FRYE DOMINATES FOR FIRST LATE MODEL WIN OF SEASON; MITCH RETURNS TO PRO STOCK WINNERS CIRCLE; BISSINGER SCORES SIXTH ROADRUNNER FEATURE WIN

SELINSGROVE, Pa. –Selinsgrove's Cody Keller made a breakthrough Saturday night at Selinsgrove Speedway and scored an impressive victory in the 25-lap 360 sprint car feature following a season filled with mechanical woes. The $2,000 win was Keller's first of the season and first career in a 360 sprint car at the wheel of the Keller's Auto Body/Trautman's Meat Market No. 99. He became the division's seventh different winner this season and in doing so ended point leader Mark Smith's three-race winning streak. Keller previously won two 358 sprint car races at the track.

Coleby Frye of Dover also turned in a convincing performance for his first win of the season in the 25-lap late model feature. Frye became the 10th different late model winner this season in 15 races.

Brad Mitch of McClure scored his fifth win of the year in the 15-lap pro stock feature and put himself in a position to clinch the track championship, while Keith Bissinger of Orangeville held off a late-race challenge for his sixth win in the 12-lap roadrunner race.

Selinsgrove Speedway will hold a $2,000-to-win tune-up race for the super late models at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 23, in preparation for the upcoming two-day World of Outlaws Late Model Series National Open weekend Aug. 30-31. The 360 sprint cars, pro stocks, and roadrunners will round out the four-division racing card.

Tickets for the Aug. 30-31 World of Outlaws Late Model Series National Open events are on sale now in the track office on race days or by calling the speedway at 570.374.2999. The pro stocks will join the late models on the Aug. 30 program and the limited late models will race on the Aug. 31 show.

Polesitter Troy Betts and fourth-place starter Cody Keller battled for the lead on the start of the sprint car feature. Entering turn three on the first lap, Keller streaked underneath Betts and took the early lead. Keller set a torrid pace in front of Betts, eighth-place starter Jason Shultz, and 12th-place starter Mark Smith at the front of the pack.

The first caution flag unfurled on lap six when Michael Walter's No. 33 rolled to a stop on the track. When the race restarted, Keller kept his sprinter out in front the pack. On lap nine, Shultz passed Betts for the runner-up spot as 17th-place starter TJ Stutts rocketed into the top five.

At the halfway point, Keller began to encounter slower traffic. With five laps to race, Keller was leading Shultz, Smith, Stutts, and Betts in a high-speed chase around the half-mile oval. Betts, however, brought out the final caution flag when his car came to a stop on the backstretch.

On the final restart, Keller maintained his momentum around the top of the race track as Smith took the second spot away from Shultz. At the checkered flag, Keller was victorious by 2.5 seconds over Smith. Shultz, Stutts, and seventh-place starter Larry Kelleher completed the top five.

Coleby Frye started the late model feature in the fourth position and horsepowered his way into the lead at the completion of the first lap, when the event's only caution flag unfurled for Chad Hollenbeck's stalled car on the backstretch.

When the race resumed, Frye checked out from the field while second-place starter Eric Hons, third-place starter Hayes Mattern dueled for the runner up position. By lap nine, sixth-place starter Gene Knaub took over the second spot with 10th-place starter Jeff Rine racing third.

On the 19th circuit, Rine passed Knaub for the second position and attempted to reel in Frye at the front of the pack. At the finish, Frye posted a convincing eight-second margin of victory over Rine, ninth-place starter Dylan Yoder, 12th-place starter Jim Yoder, and eighth-place starter Dave Zona.

Polesitter Matt Hornberger led the first five laps of the pro stock feature. On the sixth lap, 11th-place starter Brad Mitch made the winning pass using the inside lane entering turn three. Mitch was then tracked down by 10th-place starter Kyle Bachman until Bachman's car lost speed on the ninth lap.

Mitch went on to take the checkered flag over Hornberger, Tommy Slanker, Adam Campbell, and Cory Long. Jamin Chapmin's car, which crossed the line in the third position, was disqualified during a post-race inspection.

Fifth-place starter Keith Bissinger stormed into the lead on the first lap of the roadrunner race. Bissinger was followed at a distance by fourth-place starter John Fowler Jr. until the last two laps. On the final circuit, Fowler moved into striking position and attempted a last-ditch pass coming off turn four but came up short for the checkered flag. Bissinger was victorious over Fowler, Curtis Lawton, Butch Shaffer, and Jeremy Kline.

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

Mike Wagner Becomes 13th Winner In 15 Sprint Events At Port Royal

Miller Sr. Makes It 12 For 12 In Super Lates, Leidy cops econo championship

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

8/16/14

Port Royal – For the second week in a row on Saturday night the Port Royal Speedway produced a thrilling 410 sprint car feature with the likes of Blane Heimbach, Logan Wagner, Greg Hodnett and Mike Wagner taking shots at the lead and point leader Mike Wagner sealing the victory to become the 13th different winner at the oval this season.

In the 20-lap super late model main Jeff Miller Sr. scored his first victory of the season to push the division to 12 and 12 on the year, 12 races and 12 different winners.

The 355 econo late model championship event was scored by Dave Leidy after a rousing event.

The initial start of the 410 sprint main was called back for a false start while the ensuing restart was red flagged for a three car crash in the fourth corner that saw Daryl Stimeling and Scott Wilson flip.

The third try at the start was the charm and with Mike Wagner taking the lead Blane Heimbach pushed his mount from fourth to second with a two-car, inside pass of Nate Snyder and Logan Wagner in the fourth turn.

Heimbach was breathing down the leader’s neck seconds later when the yellow unfurled for a stopped Joey Hershey.

The other 24 laps of the event went non-stop with eye-popping and dizzying efforts to snare control of the race unfolding.

Logan Wagner, the son of leader Mike Wagner, got by Heimbach when action resumed and throughout the race ran made a tremendous effort to steal the win from his father.

Logan’s breakneck speed through the first and second turns while riding the cushion pushed him onto his dad’s bumper several times only to see the elder of the two preserve the lead as sixth starter Hodnett entered the picture.

After racing with Heimbach for third he took the position with nine laps to go amid hectic traffic as the leader worked the backmarkers.

And then just as Hodnett took over third Logan Wagner was ready to make his move for a first ever 410 sprint win.

Again with an amazing burst of speed out of the second corner and down the backstretch Logan shot his mount underneath his father as the pair raced into the third corner.

And then as Logan’s car slid up the track directly beside his dad’s machine in the middle of the turns, an amazing amount of restraint and ability by the duo is all that kept the pair from crashing together in the fourth corner and allowing Hodnett to get control.

But that failed attempt by Logan Wagner and the necessary backpedaling that took place to prevent disaster for the pair would end up costing the up and comer second to Hodnett with five laps to go.

Hodnett began blasting his car across the middle of the turns to cut down the distance between himself and leader Mike Wagner.

However with two laps to go just as Hodnett had caught the leader, Mike Wagner cleared a backmarker racing back to the stripe and Hodnett failed to accomplish the same feat, and that sealed the victyory for the elder Wagner who took his 11th career Port win by 1.143 seconds over Hodnett.

Logan Wagner finished a career best third followed by Heimbach and 10th starter Doug Esh.

Sixth through 10th went to Mike Erdley, Ryan Taylor, Lance Dewease, Chad Layton and Nate Snyder.

Heats for the 23-car field went to Dewease, Logan Wagner and Layton.

Second starter Jeff Miller Sr. started second and took the lead at the start of the 20-lap main for the super late models with Justin Kann taking second.

Miller Sr., who saw his son Jeff Miller Jr. win at the track last week in the 305 sprints, withstood a pair of restarts to pick up the victory.

The final restart was with a lap to go after the leader was racing to the checkered flag on the frontchute only to see the yellow appear instead of the checkers.

That restart set up a dash to the finish for Kann and seventh starter Brett Schadel.

Schadel was making time in the top groove prior to the yellow but neither driver could muster enough strength to take the win over the final lap.

After leading nearly the entire event only to lose late last week, Patrick Bryner rode home a very respectable fourth at the finish after dueling with Tim Wilson for the majority of the event.

Wilson rode home fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Scott Flickinger, Tim Smith Jr., Mitch Hack, Mike Lupfer and Eric Zembower.

Heats for the 16-car field went to Kann and Miller.

The 20 lap econo late model main saw Brett Hockenberry take the lead at the start over Harold Ranck Jr. before the pace was slowed with four laps recorded.

Dave Leidy started fourth in the field and got by Ranck for second with five away and finally pushed his racer into the lead with just three laps to go.

By that time sixth starter Eric Irvin and eighth starter Todd Snook had entered the hunt.

Snook got by Irvin for third on the 18th tour and with a lap to go he pushed his No. 23 to the inside of Hockenberry for second in the third corner.

But the move went awry and Hockenberry shot toward the outside rail with Irving slamming into Hockenberry before slamming the outside wall as well.

The final lap caution gave Snook a clear shot at the win but Leidy was too strong, pulling away off of the second corner for the victory.

Andrew Yoder ended up third followed by hard charger Tim Krape and Lucas Bryner after the pair started 11th and 12th, respectively.

Sixth through 10th went to Jared Fulkroad, Troy Miller, Tim Gray, Shaun Miller and Ken Beck.

Twin heats went to Leidy and Troy Miller.

DIETRICH CATCHES RAHMER LATE FOR THIRD 2014 LINCOLN WIN;

Alex Bright wins for second straight night in ARDC midgets

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 8/16/2014 – The night looked like it belonged to young Freddie Rahmer, but then Danny Dietrich stole the show.

Freddie won the dash for cash (a $500 bonus from race sponsor Jerry Parrish and Premier Auto Works in a winner-take-all 10 lapper) and then came from fourth starting spot to take the lead from polesitter Mike Bittinger by the end of the second lap. He was the fastest car all night to that point, and looked to be in command of the 30-lap feature. Then lapped traffic (including brother Brandon) entered the picture, and a charging Danny Dietrich was plowing through the field from 11th starting spot to pass both third-place Robbie Kendall and second-place Bittinger between turns four and one of laps 22 and 23.

One lap later, passed both Rahmer sprinters to take the race lead on the front stretch and drove away to an impressive 2.88 second win.

“We were really good,” said Dietrich after scoring his third win of the year and 21st career win in the Pigeon Hills, “Alan (Krimes) got out there and we were just setting pace with him. That’s all we worried about doing…keeping up with Alan.”

“Then I saw him loop it down there (turns three and four of lap nine), and it about got me. We were probably two feet from being collected. I’m happy to be standing here.”

But the minefield wasn’t over for Dietrich.

“I was biding my time and got behind Robbie (Kendall) there, and he about stuffed in the fence in front of me, and that fouled me up for about a lap. I was sure if I wanted to follow him with his car getting loose or what, but when he started to break for the bottom and Mike decided to break to run middle, I figured this is my chance…I gotta go for it and come out of this thing ahead off of four. It worked out really good.

Rahmer hung on for a career-best second place finish, with Bittinger, Kendall, and Kyle Moody completing the top five.

Sixth through tenth were 14th-starting Jim Siegel, Gerard McIntyre, Jr., Krimes, Glenndon Forsythe, and Brian Montieth (who came from the back after a seventh-lap spin.

Heats for the 25 410 sprinters were won by Krimes, Nicole Bower, and Freddie Rahmer.

Alex Bright made it two wins in two nights (Friday night at Williams Grove) as ARDC celebrated its 75th anniversary season as part of the Eastern Museum of Motor Racing’s annual convention weekend.

Bright started sixth and didn’t appear to have a chance as the first 19 laps went non-stop with Steve Buckwalter holding nearly a two-second lead through lapped traffic. But the only caution of the event came out on lap 20, with Bright catching points leader Steve Drevicki for second just before the yellow flag came out.

Bright took to the cushion to driver around Buckwalter on the restart, and crossed 1.37 seconds ahead of Lincoln’s all-time midget winner. Drevicki, Nick Wean, and Brent Arndt rounded out the top five.

Heats for the 24 ARDC Midgets were won by Steve Buckwalter, Tony DiMattia, and Brenden Bright.

Next Saturday night, August 23rd, the 410 Sprints will be back in action as will be the 358 Sprints competing in the Trail-Way/Lincoln “Shootout” weekend.

SETH KEARCHNER CLAIMS FIRST CAREER 358 SPRINT WIN AT TRAIL-WAY;

Hanover, PA (08/15/14) –“Finally. Finally!!”

So said former micro-sprint driver Seth Kearchner after scoring his first career “358” sprint car win in the 25-lap feature event at Trail-Way Speedway Friday night.

“I’ve learned through the years to run my own pace,” said Kearchner, “And tonight I ran at my own pace.”

Kearchner’s pace was quick enough to dominate the race. The Fairfield driver started on the pole and led every lap, while several big guns in the field had their troubles.

Trail-way points leader Brad McClelland started 12th and advanced through the field to sixth before getting involved in a three-car spin into the infield off the back stretch of lap 14. Dwight Leppo (who was running fifth) and the lapped car of Wyatt Hinkle were also involved, and all three were able to restart at the rear. McClelland changed a flat tire and came through the field to earn a hard charger sixth place finish.

Three-time winner Isaac Sneeringer was scheduled to start on the front row but had to go to the rear after diving in the pits before the start to connect a loose wire. He came back through the field to finish fifth.

Invader Kevin Nouse started third and finished there, with Robbie Kendall starting fourth and finishing second.

“It’s really special when you win a race with McClelland, Kendall, Sneeringer, and Nouse in the field,” said Kearchner, “This is something. I haven’t even won a heat race this year!”

Jeff Halligan finished fourth.

Heats for the 13 “358” sprinters were won by Randy Whisler and Kendall.

Cody Fletcher was uninjured in a spectacular flip in turn one of his qualifying event, and was unable to start the feature.

Bill Diehl was the winner of the 20-lap Central PA Legends feature. Diehl started third and took the lead from Bob Stough on lap 13. He led the rest of the way, with ninth-starting Scott Houdeshall catching Stough for second with one lap to go. Stough settled for third, with Lucas Montgomery and Bill Foster completing the top five.

Heats for the 13 Legends were won by Stough and Chris Transeau.

Michael Goodwin came from sixth starting spot to win his second Trail-Way race of the year in the street stock division. Goodwin took the lead from Joey Harrison on lap two and dominated the rest of the way, crossing six seconds ahead of Dan Furman, who ran the second half of the race with a right front tire going down.

Chad Stine, David Johnson, and Kelly Seal completed the top five.

The race saw the return of Craig Wagaman, who dropped out with a flat tire on lap two, returned to action after making a quick tire change, and then stopping in a plume of steam on turn four of lap 11, ending his night.

Heats for the 11 street stocks were won by Wagaman and Todd Miller.

Points leader Matt Chronister raced to his sixth win of the year in the 15-lap limited stock feature.

Chronister started ninth and took the lead from front row starter Aaron Levin on lap six. He led the rest of the way despite heavy late-race pressure from 11th-starting Cory Weishaar, who actually came from the back after a front stretch spin on lap three.

Tom Senseney (who started 14th), 13th-starting Wesley Kellison, and 12th-starting Shane Miller rounded out the top five.

Heats for the 20 limited stocks were won by Weishaar and Levin.

Next Friday (8/22), Trail-Way will host opening night of the two-night Trail-Way/Lincoln Shootout for 358 sprint cars, the Precise Racing Products 358 Late Models, Limited Stocks, and 600cc Micro Sprints. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. and racing begins at 7:30 p.m.

Central PA 358 Point Series presented by Capitol Renegade

This week the Central PA 358 Point Series presented by Capitol Renegade saw their lone point series race at Trail Way Speedway won by second year driver Seth Kearchner who scored his 1st career 358 feature event win. Seth would lead every lap leading Robbie Kenndal and invader Kevin Nouse. Nouse who made his first trip to the short track in 2014 would score much needed point in the season long standings and take a chunk out of series point leader Brad McClelland's point lead. Brad would come home in 6th place this week and would loose 24 points to the driver of the 4r machine. Nouse has made a statement this week that this point chase is far from over, and McClelland better better be ready for the point series to go down to the final race of the season at Susquehanna Speedway in November. With the Trail Way/ Lincoln Speedway shootout next weekend do not be surprised to see Kevin back at Trail Way as there is a lot of extra money on the line for the drivers who race both tracks next weekend.

The top 10 in points for the Central PA 358 Point Series presented by Capitol Renegade looks like this ...

1. Brad McClelland 777 Pts.(7 Win) 2. Kevin Nouse -730 Pts. (7 Win) 3. Chase Dietz -535 Pts. (4 win) 4. Chandler Leiby -453 Pts. 5. Matt Campbell -451 Pts. (2 win) 6. Robert Kendall - 421 Pts.

Marks And Hodnett Split Williams Grove Twin 20s, Bright Takes ARDC

8/15/14

Mechanicsburg ? Brent Marks and Greg Hodnett split twin 20?s for 410 sprints at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, taking checkered flags worth $2,500 each.

In the 20-lap ARDC Midget feature event, Alex Bright wired the field from the second starting spot to claim his fourth overall win of the ARDC season.

Marks started second in the first twin 20 for the super sprint cars and trailed polesitter Gerard McIntyre Jr. for the first 16 circuits before snagging the lead late in the event.

Even on a restart on the seventh lap Marks had nothing for leader McIntyre but as the leader worked traffic on the fast racing surface, Marks closed the gap and then made a two car pass in the second turn to get control of the race.

He went to the outside of both McIntyre and a lapped car to get control and drive away to the win over the final two miles of the event.

The victory was the second for Marks at Williams Grove this season.

McIntyre Jr. settled for second followed by Hodnett, Pat Cannon and Lance Dewease.

Sixth through 10th went to Don Kreitz Jr., Adrian Shaffer, Stevie Smith, Ryan Smith and Adam Wilt.

Marks drew a six inversion to start the second feature, which placed Kreitz and Dewease on the front row for the green flag.

Kreitz jumped out to the lead after a first turn duel with Dewease on the start as Hodnett got around Dewease to take second on the first circuit.

Kreitz ran through the middle of the race track during his run at the front but Hodnett was clearly quickening on the cushion and as the race hit the halfway point, Hodnett was glued to Kreitz?s bumper.

And before lap 11 could be completed Hodnett took the lead from Kreitz.

The field was working on lap 12 when the red suddenly appeared for a violent first turn flip by earlier winner Marks who reportedly blew a tire.

Kreitz made an attempt to reclaim the lead on the restart but was no match for Hodnett as he streaked away to his third win of the season at the track.

Kreitz was second followed by a surging Stevie Smith, Dewease and Adrian Shaffer.

Sixth through 10th went to Ryan Smith, Doug Esh, Adam Wilt, Alan Krimes and Brian Montieth.

Fast time over the 26 car field was set by Kreitz with a lap of 16.537 seconds.

Twin qualifiers went to Lafferty and Esh.

Bright led the entire distance in the ARDC main event after the initial start was red flagged for hard contact with the outside turn three wall by polestitter Justin Grosz.

Bright was chased by Bruce Buckwalter Jr. early before point leader Steve Drevicki took second away at the halfway point.

Running in third, Buckwalter got high with little more than an lap to go and gave up a podium finish to Trevor Kobylarz for the spot.

PJ Gargiulo rode home fourth followed by Brenden Bright.

Heats for the 21-car field went to Brenden Bright, Drevicki and Kobylarz.

Aug. 23 410 sprint Twin 25s and Aug. 30 late model Renninger Memorial in sight

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

8/10/14

Port Royal – Port Royal Speedway will present DMI Free Hot Dog Night this Saturday, August 16 at 7 pm featuring a three division racing program of Aumiller’s Insurance 410 sprints, Jake’s Carts/Enviroman Products super late models and the Gray’s Auto – Towing – Licensing 355 econo late models.

Courtesy of DMI of Lancaster, the first 250 paid general admissions through the gate this week will receive a voucher for a FREE HOT DOG at the event.

The racing program will be highlighted by a 20-lap Econo Late Model Championship paying $750 to win while also carrying an increased purse.

Port Royal Speedway is in the midst of an impressively competitive season involving the 410 sprints and super late models.

On August 9 Lance Dewease became the 12th different sprint car winner in 14 events held for the class at the track this season while Dylan Yoder became the 11th winner in 11 races so far this year at the track for the super late models.

The August 16 event is a precursor to the revamped August 23 Open Wheel Madness program featuring Twin 25-lap features for the 410 sprints along with a full program of River Valley Builders 305 sprints.

Both of the Twin 25s on August 23 for the super sprints will carry full purses and pay full points toward the 2014 track title.

The winner of the first 410 sprint main on August 23 will pull an inversion pill to set the starting lineup for the second race.

The URC Sprints have been removed from the August 23 program.

The super late models take center stage on August 30 for the 160th annual Juniata County Fair Opener as they compete in the prestigious, heralded Butch Renninger Memorial for the stock cars.

The Renninger Memorial will pay a hefty $3,000 to win for the 33-lap contest that will also pay lap money as well as a hefty purse for the super lates in honor of the late track titlist.

SMITH SCORES EMOTIONAL KRAMER CUP WIN; JIM YODER HOLDS OFF STEVE CAMPBELL FOR LATE MODEL WIN; KYLE BACHMAN WINS 44TH CAREER PRO STOCK FEATURE

SELINSGROVE, Pa. - Mark Smith ran his winning streak to to three straight on Saturday night at Selinsgrove Speedway as he drove past race leader Ryan Kissinger on a lap-20 restart to claim the inaugural win in the 25-lap Kramer Cup in United Racing Company 360 sprint car action.

Other winners on Saturday night were Jim Yoder (late models) and Kyle Bachman (pro stocks).

Selinsgrove Speedway will present a regular four-division show on Sat., Aug. 9, of 360 sprint cars, late models, pro stocks and roadrunners. Selinsgrove Raceway Park will present a program of go-karts and micro sprint cars on Friday, Aug. 11 at 7.

After an initial false start, Troy Betts lead the opening lap of the 25-lap sprint car feature that honored the late Kramer Williamson, the 1978 Selinsgrove Speedway sprint car track champion with Ryan Kissinger and T.J. Stutts right in his tire tracks.

On lap 3, Kissinger passed Betts on the high side of Turn 2 for the lead and one lap later, Stutts got by Betts for the runner-up spot. Kissinger and Stutts then begin a series of slide jobs over the next several laps as they battled for the lead before the first caution came out on lap 7 for Colby Womer who slowed in Turn 4.

On the restart, Stutts got a run on Kissinger and took the lead but Kissinger gained the spot right back as he drove around Stutts on the high side in Turn 4 on lap 8. Smith, who started ninth, moved into the top five on lap 10 and took over the runner-up sport from Stutts on lap 15.

The second caution of the race came on lap 20 for debris as Jimmy Stitzle spun in front of the leaders in Turn 3. Under the caution, Stutts pulled into the pits with mechanical issues.

On the double-file restart, Smith would pass Kissinger on the low side of Turn 1 to go on and lead the final five laps of the race. It was his sixth win of the year at Selinsgrove and his 10th career win, moving him into seventh place on the all-time 358-360 sprint car win list.

Kissinger held on for second with Robbie Stillwaggon, Mike Walter and Davie Franek, who came from 15th, rounding out the top five. Sixth through 10th were Josh Weller, Curt Michael, Jason Shultz, Hunter Schuerenberg and Larry Kelleher.

In the 25-lap late model feature, Scott Richwine paced the first seven circuits before Jim Yoder made an inside pass on him as the pair raced off of Turn 4. The first caution came out on lap 8 for Meade Hahn who had a tire let go entering Turn 1.

On the restart, Yoder led Richwine with Chad David, Hayes Mattern and Jim Bernheisel in tow as several cautions plagued the middle part of the race. Bernheisel moved into second on lap 13 before points leader Steve Campbell moved past him on lap 17. Campbell closed in on Yoder over the final few lap and was within striking distance on the final lap when he momentarily got held up by a lapped car.

Yoder would go on to win his 12th-career late model feature over Campbell by .095 seconds.

Jeff Rine, Bernheisel and Dan Stone rounded out the top five. Sixth through 10th were Matt Cochran, Dave Zona, Bryan Bernheisel, Tony Adams and Hayes Mattern.

Kyle Bachman raced to his division leading 44th pro stock feature win in the 12-lap main event. Cory Long led the majority of the race whiled holding off Peanut Heintzelman, Nathan Long and Brad Mitch in the early goings.

The race was slowed by three cautions.

Bachman made the winning move late in the race as points leader Mitch finished second with N. Long, C. Long and Derrick Garman rounding out the top five. Sixth through 10 were A.J. Stroup, Tommy Slanker, Kury Wray, Adam Campbell and Jamin Chapman.

Dewease Wins Electrifying Port Royal Sprint Main, Yoder Sets New 20-lap Mark In Late Models

Miller Jr. and Zook claim 305 sprints and xtremes

8/4/14

Port Royal – Lance Dewease was the winner of an electrifying 410 sprint car feature at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night in a race that saw three different drivers take turns at the lead along with at least a half dozen lead changes between Ryan Taylor, Dewease and Doug Esh.

In the late model main Dylan Yoder set a new 20 lap track record as he scored the victory, taking the laurels away from local favorite Patrick Bryner with two laps to go.

Jeff Miller Jr. took over the point lead in the 305 sprint series with victory in his division while Jason Zook drove to victory in the xtreme stock division.

Polesitter Ryan Taylor got the drop on Dewease on the start of the 25 lap 410 sprint car main with Dewease close behind.

For a few laps Taylor crept out of striking distance but quickly Dewease closed up the gap and took the lead for the first time with 14 down.

Taylor kept Dewease close during the ensuing circuits and as the race raged through traffic Taylor pounced on the 11th tour when Dewease got bottled up behind the slow car of Trenton Schaeffer.

It was impossible for Taylor to get away however as Dewease came right back to again drive by for control on the 13th tour.

Meanwhile, ninth starter Doug Esh was blistering through the pack and was up to fifth behind Dewease, Taylor, Rodney Westhafer and Mike Wagner when the red flag appeared with 11 laps to go for Westhafer who had climbed the rear end of Schaffer’s car on the backchute before flipping.

Esh drove by Wagner for third on the restart and then surpassed Taylor for second with six to go.

With Dewease in his sights, Esh began chomping two tenths of a second off of the leader’s advantage and he was a car length back of Dewease when a caution flag slowed the pace with just two laps left.

A big old slider came Dewease’s way on the restart as the Esh thrust his No. 8H deep into the first corner to slide up and take the lead in the second corner.

But Dewease fought back to reclaim the spot as the pair raced into the third turn ready to bring the field to the white flag.

On the final lap Esh had made another attempt but came up short by just .364 seconds at the rousing finish.

The victory was the 97th of Dewease’s career at the track, worth $3,000 that made him the 12th different sprint car winner at the track this year.

Taylor rode home third followed by Rick Lafferty and Nate Snyder.

Sixth through 10th went to Mike Wagner, Blane Heimbach, Mike Erdley, Chad Layton and Ryan Smith.

Heats for the 22 car field went to Lafferty, Wagner and Heimbach.

Patrick Bryner of Port Royal took control of the late model main at the start and never looked back with control, chased by Justin Kann for the majority of the race.

Lap after lap Bryner hit his marks in the corners and with 10 laps to go at the halfway point the upstart was pulling away from the field.

But lurking back in the pack was fifth starter Dylan Yoder who began coming to life with about eight laps to go.

He took third from Tim Smith Jr. with five to go and then got by Kann with three to go.

It took until the leaders raced into the third turn as they headed for the white flag for Yoder to finally catch Bryner for the win.

He dove his No. 24 deep into the third turn to drive off of the fourth corner with the lead and then held on for the final lap to pick up the victory and become the 11th different late model winner in as many races at Port Royal this season.

Yoder’s new 20 lap track record was set at 6:55.213, with Bryner settling for second followed by Kann, Mike Lupfer and Smith Jr.

Sixth through 10th went to Coleby Frye, Brett Schadel, Rance Garlock, Mitch Hack and Jason Schmidt.

Heats for the 22 car field were taken by Yoder, Kann and Schadel.

Tyler Reeser led the first 11 laps of the 20 lap 305 sprint main before Jeff Miller Jr. took over.

And then just a lap after taking control Reeser was taken out of the race via a first turn accident.

Mike Wagner II., assumed second for the restart but failed to mount a challenge for the win.

Ninth starter John Braim motored to third at the finish followed by Lance Newlin and Nathan Gramley.

Sixth through 10th went to Reed Thompson, Roger Irvine, Ken Duke, Matt Mountz and Paul Snyder.

Heats for the 26 cars in action went to Reeser, Braim and Thompson.

Jason Zook claimed his second xtreme stock main of the year, taking the lead from Corey Kepner when he got out of shape on the 12th tour.

Zook then held off point leader Bill Powell to the finish followed by Kepner, Bob Bussey and Mike Goodwin.

STORYBOOK ENDING TO FALLEN FIREFIGHTERS NIGHT AT LINCOLN FINDS WAGAMAN IN VICTORY LANE;

McClelland makes it a two-win weekend in “358” sprints; Blaine Leppo wins second straight in Central PA Legends

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 8/9/2014 – “If this was your first time at a sprint car race, you’re coming back next week. I can guarantee that.”

So said Hanover’s Tim Wagaman after pulling into victory lane for his first career 410 sprint car feature win and the $5,000 top prize in Saturday’s National Fallen Firefighters Night in memory of Brandon Little at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

You couldn’t make Saturday’s story up. Wagaman was carrying the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation colors, with a specially-designed car with Brandon Little’s photo on the top wing.

Handicapping placed Wagaman on the pole for the 33-lap feature, the distance of which was in recognition of United Hook & Ladder Station #33 serving Abbottstown and New Oxford.

Although he led every lap, he held off four other challengers over the final non-stop 20 laps. The last five laps was frantic, with tenth-starting Alan Krimes driving under second-place Billy Dietrich and sliding up in front of Wagaman to briefly take the lead in turn four of lap 29. Wagaman drove back under Krimes to retake the lead exiting the turn, and regained control on the first two turns of lap 30. Krimes tried the slider one last time in the third and fourth turns of lap 31, but backed off exiting the turn, giving Wagaman the room he needed to score the .84-second win.

“I started falling out of my seat a little bit at the end. I was getting frustrated with myself,” said Wagaman, “Then Krimes came out of nowhere. I thought if I made some good laps and some smart decisions I could still win. He really could have did me dirty down in turns thee and four and he didn’t. I gotta respect that. I know he’s going for a point title and that might have played a little into it.

“That was some awesome, awesome driving by everybody involved,” continued Wagaman.

Krimes settled for second, with Cory Haas passing Dietrich on 31 for third. Dietrich finished fourth, with Adam Wilt completing the top five. Sixth through tenth were Jim Siegel, Gerard McIntyre, Jr., Robbie Kendall, Kyle Moody, and 19th-starting Nathan Berwager.

“Hopefully, I’m getting a little bit of respect from those guys,” said former 358 sprint car champ Wagaman, “I want to try and earn it. Those guys have been there and I want to be there, too.”

“The Little family is ecstatic. If there was any race that I could wish to win, it would be this one. I’m so glad we got it done,” added Wagaman.

The National Fallen Firefighters Night was sponsored by Fire & Rescue Products of Harrisburg and AMKUS Rescue Systems.

Heats for the 24 410 sprinters were won by Austin Hogue, Siegel, and Brian Montieth. Montieth dropped the infield on lap eight, and Hogue pulled up lame with steering issues on lap 14.

Friday night Trail-Way winner Brad McClelland made it his first two-win weekend in the 20-lap “358” sprint car feature. McClelland started sixth and took the lead from Jeff Halligan on lap nine. He led the rest of the way, spoiling a perfect night for the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation, as Jeff Rohrbaugh crossed second nearly one second behind McClelland.

It was McClelland’s sixth career 358 Lincoln win to go along with his two 410 sprint wins, and was worth $1,333.

Chase Dietz made the run of his life after coming back from a two-car tangle with Matt Campbell on lap three to blow through the field at pass Kevin Nouse to cross third at the finish. Nouse and Niki Young completed the top five.

Heats for the 27 358 sprinters were won by Campbell, Chris Frank, and Rohrbaugh, with Brian Allman winning the consolation.

For the second straight time, brothers Blaine and Harlon Leppo finished first and second in the 15-lap Central PA Legends feature. Also in the mix for the win were previous 2014 Lincoln feature winners Bob Stough and Lucas Montgomery, but they got together in turn four while racing for second with two laps to go. That put Harlon back on Blaine’s bumper for the two-lap dash to the checkered. Blaine’s final margin of victory was two-thirds of a second, with Bill Diehl, rookie Mason Chaney, and Rick Miller rounding out the top five.

Heats for the 21 Central PA Legends were won by Harlon Leppo and Diehl.

Next Saturday night, August 16, it will be PREMIER AUTO WORKS/AUTO LOCATOR NIGHT along with York County Racing Club Night featuring the 410 Sprints, ARDC Midgets, plus an Eastern Museum of Motor Racing (EMMR) Exhibition. Racing gets underway at 7:30 PM with gates opening at 5:30 PM.

McCLELLAND BACK IN VICTORY LANE IN TRAIL-WAY 358 SPRINTS;

SHAWN SEIFERT TAKES 600CC MICRO-SPRINTS;

JIM YOUNG & KEITH FORD WIN TWIN SIDEWINDER FEATURES;

MILLER LIMITED STOCK VICTOR; STREMMEL TAKES STREET STOCK THILLER

Hanover, PA (08/08/14) – All-time winner Brad McClelland started on the pole and led every lap for his fifth win of the year in the 25-lap “358” sprint car feature at Trail-Way Speedway Friday night.

“We’ll take it. We got a good pill draw and the track was slick tonight,” said the Trail-Way and Central PA 358 sprint car points leader upon exiting the Steve Rucker-owned Baird Heating & Cooling/Littlestown Auto Care/Stuffle Construction/Rucker Computer #6R in victory lane, “Isaac (Sneeringer) and I are taking turns starting at the front and back.”

As for Sneeringer, last week’s winner started at the back, spun when his car jumped out of gear in turns three and four of the original start, and came back through to finish fourth.

McClelland dominated throughout, crossing 4.88 seconds ahead of Seth Kearchner at the checkered flag.

Invader Mark Bitner was third, with Cody Fletcher finishing fifth.

Heats for the 11 “358” sprinters were won by McClelland and Zach Euculano, who brought out the red flag when he flipped in turn four of the second attempt to start the race.

Shawn Seifert also led every lap from the pole in the 20-lap 600cc micro-sprint feature. Though he was never seriously challenged, Seifert did have to withstand several cautions and one red flag, which came out for a double-flip by Hannah Riser and Travis Scott in turn four of lap six.

Bo Gordon, Jr., Brad Weber, Jim Young, and Bret Cronrath completed the top five.

Qualifiers for the 18 micros were won by Weber and Jim Radney.

Twin 1000cc “Sidewinder” micro-sprint features were won by Jim Young and Keith Ford.

Young, celebrating his 55th birthday, also led every lap from the pole in the first 15-lapper.

Mike Zielonis, Rohan Beasley, Austin Quick, and Brandon Yarett completed the top five in the first feature.

Keith Ford, who suffered a flat tire and dropped from the first feature, took the lead from his outside front row starting spot and led every lap of the second feature. His win in the non-stop event established a new Trail-Way “Sidewinder” track record of 4 minutes, 5 seconds.

Hannah Riser (doing double duty in the two micro-sprint divisions), Quick, Jerry Strausbaugh, and Young finished second through fifth.

Shane Miller started fourth and became the third different leader on lap six in scoring his first win of the year in the 15-lap limited stock feature.

Outside front row starter Mike Wolf led the first three laps before fifth-starting Terry Hartlaub took the lead. He led laps four and five before Miller took the lead. He led the rest of the way, with Shannon Weaver coming from eighth to finish second. Third through fifth were ninth-starting Kyle Rohrbaugh, 11th-starting Matt Chronister, and Jason Chronister.

Heats for the 18 limited stocks were won by Miller and Rohrbaugh.

Jeremy Stremmel claimed his third win of the year in a wild 20-lap street stock feature that saw him lead the first 12 laps and the last four laps.

Stremmel got out of shape in turns three and four and handed the lead to fifth-starting Eric Johnson on lap 13. Johnson led the next three laps before a charging Dan Furman (now in second) bumped Johnson and got both drivers out of shape in turns one and two of lap 16. Third-place Chad Stine took to the low side and Stremmel went around the outside to take first and second, with Stine scored the leader of lap 16.

One lap later, Stremmel reclaimed the lead for good, with Johnson settling for second in his first Trail-Way appearance. Stine, Cory Weishaar, and David Johnson completed the top five.

Furman dropped from the field with a flat right front tire on lap 17.

The lone qualifier for the 11 street stocks was won by Stine.

Kreitz Reclaims Williams Grove Point Lead With 60th Career WG Win

Nouse claims 4th 358 sprint win of season

8/8/14

Mechanicsburg – Don Kreitz Jr. took back the point lead from Greg Hodnett in style at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night by claiming the 25-lap 410 sprint victory, a win that marked the 60th of his career at the historic oval.

In total, Kreitz took home over $4,100 for the win including $50 in lap money and a $500 bonus for winning from the fifth row.

Kevin Nouse scored his fourth 358 sprint car feature of the season to end the night, strengthening his point lead over Adrian Shaffer.

After a false initial start, original fourth starter Austin Hogue of Dover motored into the lead at the start of the 410 sprint main over Davey Sammons.

Hogue and Sammons inherited the front row for the beginning of the race after the false start was called on Brock Zearfoss and Nicole Bower.

The caution flag unfurled with three laps completed for a spin by Lance Dewease in the second corner and the restart turned into a red for a four-car accident in the third corner.

The restart had seen Rick Lafferty jump to Sammons’ inside as the pair exited the second turn and at that time Lafferty slammed the inside rail.

After a second of normalcy for Lafferty down the backstretch, his car went sideways into the third turn with obvious front end difficulties and the end result saw the red unfurl after contact with fifth runner Zearfoss, sixth runner Ryan Smith and eighth runner Brian Montieth.

Kreitz restarted fourth behind Hogue, Sammons and Curt Michael.

Michael took second when action resumed with Kreitz following suit a lap later before taking over second spot on the seventh tour.

For the next 10 laps or so Kreitz was unable to close on leader Hogue before seeming to come to life not long after the 10 to go mark.

After trying numerous lanes and lines around the track and failing to close, Kreitz was suddenly in the hunt and after challenging Hogue for control on the 19th and 20th tour, he used a patented inside turn two move on the 21st tour to drive into the lead.

He then drove uncontested to his second win of the year at the track over Hogue, Michael, 15th starter Doug Esh and 14th starter Alan Krimes.

Sixth through 10th went to Pat Cannon, Glenndon Forsythe, Lance Dewease, Sammons and Steve Buckwalter.

Heats for the 27-car field went to Nicole Bower, Brian Montieth and Pat Cannon while Cory Haas took the consolation race.

The 20-lap 358 sprint main was red flagged with two laps completed, again for a third turn crash.

Before the stoppage DJ Montgomery had led the first lap before giving way to Jay Galloway.

Galloway continued to hold the lead for five more laps before 12th starting point leader Kevin Nouse took control of the race.

Nouse stretched it out for the next 10 laps before seeing his advantage shrink with three laps to go when Matt Campbell and Adrian Shaffer closed the gap on the high cushion.

Nevertheless Nouse took the victory for his fourth checkers of the season at the track.

Campbell was second followed by Shaffer, Scott Fisher and Chris Arnold.

Heats for the 15-car field went to Doug Hammaker and Shaffer.

August 8, 2014 Feature Finish:

410 sprints, 25 laps: 1. Don Kreitz Jr., 2. Austin Hogue, 3. Curt Michael, 4. Doug Esh, 5. Alan Krimes, 6. Pat Cannon, 7. Glenndon Forsythe, 8. Lance Dewease, 9. Davey Sammons, 10. Steve Buckwalter, 11. Mark Smith, 12. Adam Wilt, 13. Nicole Bower, 14. Troy Fraker, 15. Todd Allen, 16. Kyle Pruitt, 17. Cory Haas, 18. Rick Lafferty, 19. Brock Zearfoss, 20. Ryan Smith, 21.

Brent Marks Scores Biggest Career Win Anywhere In Port Royal Dream Worth $11,320

Nearly $4,000 contingency cash given to 17 different drivers in successful event

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

8/2/14

Port Royal – Brent Marks of Myerstown won the biggest sprint car race of his career on Saturday night at Port Royal Speedway by claiming the 8th running of the Living Legends Dream Race.

An emotional Marks pocketed a total of $10,620 including lap money for his non-stop Dream A Main victory plus another $700 for a run in his semi main for a grand total night’s earnings of $11,320.

A revenge draw placed Nate Snyder of Halifax on the pole for the start of the 35-lap Dream A Main and Snyder held off Marks for the first four laps before Marks took over.

Dave Blaney then tussled with Snyder for second for several laps before finally securing the spot on the 11th circuit as the leaders entered the rear of the field.

Greg Hodnett drove into third on the same lap and began his assault on the front of the field.

Blaney closed in on Marks during the mid stages just prior to the halfway point but then just as it seemed Blaney would challenge he began slipping backwards a bit and succumbed to Hodnett with 15 laps to go.

Try as he might, Hodnett could never close in on Marks as the leader worked traffic with a near flawless, pass-at-will performance while running his No. 19M up against the outside wall.

After winning his first ever Port Royal checkers a week earlier, Marks stretched out his advantage over Hodnett late in the event to take the prestigious triumph by 2.309 seconds ahead of the Thomasville flyer.

In doing so, Marks set a new 35-lap track record with a time of 11:16.026.

After claiming the first semi main worth $2,000 to win plus $320 in lap money and another 5K for second in the Dream A, Hodnett went home with a total on the night of $7,320.

Blaney ended the night third in the Dream A and along with his semi run went home with an even $3000.

After starting seventh in the A Main field, Rick Lafferty moved to the front with 13 laps to go, exchanging the fourth spot with Lucas Wolfe on a few occasions while also challenging Blaney for third.

Wolfe finally secured the spot with 10 laps to go and finished the night with a total of $2,800 in earnings including $100 for overall fast time.

Lafferty crossed the line in fifth spot at the finish, taking home a total of $2,100.

Dave Ely was sixth with $1,900, followed by Snyder, $2080; Chad Layton, $1,700; Logan Wagner, $1,500; and defending Dream champion Ryan Taylor, $1,475.

Lance Dewease earned the $250 Hard Charger Award with a run from 20th to 11th.

Dylan Cisney was awarded the fan voted 25th feature starter position.

Lafferty earned a free engine dyno from Don Ott Racing engines as the highest finishing Ott engine.

Hodnett took a Rider Engine dyno as the highest finishing Rider motor while Rodney Westhafer took home a Rider dyno as the lowest finishing Rider eninge.

Hodnett led all 16 laps of the first semi feature, getting by Nate Snyder on the first lap to wire the field over Wolfe, Snyder, Lafferty and Ely.

Mike Erdley was solidly in second with a lap to go when he dropped out of the event.

Ryan Taylor scored $125 hard charger laurels with a blast from 16th to sixth.

The second semi saw Steve Buckwalter take the lead at the start as Aaron Ott gave chase.

On the eighth tour as Ott blasted to Buckwalter’s outside through the fourth corner, the pair made contact on the frontchute, causing Buckwalter to spin with the lead while giving Ott a flat tire.

After Ott crossed the line as the leader of lap eight and then withdrawing, Heimbach inherited the lead and drove to the victory on the restart over Blaney, Marks, Justin Barger and Layton.

Ryan Wilson was the $125 hard charger after running from 20th to 12th at the finish.

Tyler Bear led all 12 laps of the non-qualifiers main event and took home $700 for the win, which also guaranteed him a starting spot in the 2015 Dream A Main.

Bear was chased to the finish by Kyle Moody, Kyle Pruitt, Dan Shetler and Steve Owings.

Trenton Schaeffer copped the $1000-value complete set of Penske Shocks as the highest finishing driver on Penskes.

Lucas Wolfe was the overall fast timer of the night of the 41-car field with a fast lap of 15.709 seconds and as such was the fast qualifier for the odd qualifiers semi main, worth $100.

Doug Esh was the even qualifiers $100 fast timer and second overall on the night with a lap of 16.277 seconds.

Proceeds from the night’s silent auction produced six allotments of $202 to be given to six different drivers via a random fan poll.

The winners of the bonus cash were: Doug Esh, Rodney Westhafer, Ryan Wilson, Curt Stroup, Pat Cannon and Alan Krimes.

A grand total of $3,802 in contingency cash was awarded to a total of 17 different drivers in the event.

Todd Snook and Andrew Yoder split the econo late model 15-lap feature events.

The win was the second of the season for Snook and fourth for Yoder.

Snook took the first race over Troy Miller, Yoder, Tim Krape and Devin Hart.

Yoder’s win came over Krape, Snook, Miller and hart.

Twin heats went to Hart and Snook.

Blaine Leppo edges brother in Central PA Legends; Zimmerman wins third straight in All-American Outlaws;

Tyler Walton overpowers field in 600cc Micro-Sprints

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 8/2/2014 – Chase Dietz is making a name for himself in “358” sprint car racing.

And Saturday night, he did it at the expense of Isaac Sneeringer, who led every lap but the last.

Dietz took to the top side as the two leaders sorted through heavy lapped traffic as they passed under the flagstand. Sneeringer went to the bottom, and Dietz went to the top to pass both Sneeringer and the lapped cars to score his second straight win and third of the season in Saturday’s “358” sprint car championship event at Lincoln Speedway.

“I’m so tired right now. It felt like the longest race ever!” said Dietz upon exiting his ServiceMaster/Mark’s Automotive #2D in victory lane, “I was a little tight up there on the top. I tried to bottom to slide Isaac a couple of times. The top was just too fast and it wasn’t too far up there. That kinda’ made it one lane up there, but we’d get a caution every time we got to lapped traffic.”

Leah Starner’s decision to start at the rear put Dietz tenth for the start. He was already up to third by the end of the second lap and passed polesitter Michael Hamer for second on lap three. Dietz closed on third-starting Sneeringer (who took the lead on the first lap) several times, but cautions before the leaders reached lapped traffic gave Sneeringer a clear track every time.

“I stumbled on that final restart and couldn’t slide him,” said Dietz, “I was just hoping that he would mess up a little bit in lapped traffic. We got to that last lapped car there, and he looked like he was going to go the top and Isaac had to go to the bottom. I was in the right spot at the right time. We were cruisin’ tonight, and it was awesome!”

Sneeringer settled for a disappointing second-place finish, followed by Chandler Leiby, who ran third from the third lap on.

Rounding out the top five were Doug Hammaker and Jeff Rohrbaugh. Sixth through tenth were 18th-starting Niki Young, Brad McClelland, Brie Hershey, 20th-starting Matt Campbell, and Jay Galloway.

Heats for the 30 358 sprinters were won by Rohrbaugh, Hershey, and McClelland, with Kody Lehman winning the consolation.

Spring Grove’s Blaine Leppo edged brother Harlon in a race-long battle for the top spot in the 15-lap Central PA Legends feature. Harlon was actually scored the leader of lap six, but Blaine reclaimed the lead on lap seven and paced the field the rest of the way, with 12th-starting Bob Stough, Chris Spidle, and Lucas Montgomery (all 2014 Lincoln winners) crossing third through fifth.

Heats for the 27 Central PA Legends were won by Montgomery, Spidle, and Harlon Leppo, with Mason Chaney winning the consolation.

Tyler Walton made quick work of the field in the 20-lap 600cc micro-sprint feature, charging from his 12th starting spot to take the lead from Travis Scott on lap eight and drive away to a 1.03-second win over tenth-starting Cale Reigle.

Dwayne Gutshall, Aaron Spahr, and Scott completed the top five.

Heats for the 27 600cc Micro-Sprints were won by Walton, Spahr, and Reigle, with Cheyenne Topper winning the consolation.

Kurt Zimmerman outdueled Dylan Keim to claim his third straight win in the All-American Outlaw main, reduced to 15 laps after several cautions and concerns over low fuel with several cars using eight-gallon tanks.

Zimmerman started eighth and wrestled the lead away from Keim on lap nine. The two raced side-by-side for several of the remaining laps, with Keim scored the leader of lap 11. Justin Cullum led the first lap before Keim took over, and settled for third at the end. Fourth and fifth were Hunter Nester and Scott Jorda.

Heats for the 16 All American Outlaws were won by Randy Doty (who dropped oil around the race track, leading to a lengthy delay in the feature after one lap was in the books) and Nester.

Next Saturday night, August 9th, at 7:30 PM, it will be NATIONAL FALLEN FIREFIGHTERS NIGHT IN MEMORY OF BRANDON LITTLE/Sponsored By Fire & Rescue Products & Amkus Rescue Systems featuring the 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints, Central PA Legends.

SNEERINGER HOLDS OFF McCLELLAND FOR THIRD TRAIL-WAY WIN OF ‘14;

Hanover, PA (08/01/14) –Hanover’s Isaac Sneeringer used lapped traffic to perfection in claiming his third win of the year in the 25-lap “358” sprint car feature at Trail-Way Speedway Friday night.

“It was the lapped traffic that won me the race,” said Sneeringer upon exiting his DCI Racing/Todd A. Gosnell Paving #19Z in victory lane, “I saw Brad on the inside of turn four and knew I had to go to the top in turn one and two. I had to drive around the lapped cars or take it out of the park.”

Sneeringer started on the pole and led every lap, but withstood serious challenges from points leader Brad McClelland, who started 11th and took the runner-up spot from outside front row starter Dwight Leppo in turn two of lap 11.

McClelland closed quickly on the leader, and the two raced wheel-to-wheel as they entered lapped traffic on lap 15. On lap 17, McClelland drove to the low side in turn four and attempted to make the pass with the lapped cars of Wyatt Hinkle and Cody Fairchok in between. The four cars raced in a pack as they crossed under the flagstand, and Sneeringer took to the top to get around the two lapped cars in turns one and two.

McClelland lost momentum trying to drive under Hinkle and Fairchok, and lost several carlengths.

A spinning Danny Massey on lap 24 set up a dramatic one-lap shootout at the end, but Sneeringer had enough to score his third Trail-Way win of the year.

“It’s always a good win when the 6R is in the field,” said Sneeringer.

Leppo, rookie Tyler Buchenauer, and Seth Kearchner completed the top five.

Heats for the 17 “358” sprinters were won by Leppo, Sneeringer, and Cody Fletcher.

Lucas Montgomery came from fourth starting spot to claim his second straight Trail-Way win in the 20-lap Central PA Legends feature.

Polesitter Chris McKinney led the first ten laps before giving way to Bill Diehl. Montgomery caught Diehl on lap 13, but could never shake Diehl, who finished a close second.

Chris Spidle, Bob Stough, and McKinney completed the top five.

Qualifiers for the 14 Legends were won by Stough and Montgomery.

Kenny Startzman won his second of the year and second of his career in the 15-lap limited stock feature. His two wins are his only two top-five finishes of the year.

Startzman started fourth, withstood a first-lap caution for polesitter Wes Kellison, and had the lead by the end of the first lap. He led the rest of the way, holding off a charging Matt Chronister (who started 12th), with Cody Klinedinst, Mike Wolf, and Tom Senseney rounding out the top five.

Heats for the 22 limited stocks were won by Shane Miller, Kellison, and Robert Nicklow.

Dan Furman came from last to first in scoring his fifth win of the year in the 20-lap street stock feature. Furman started tenth and snatched the lead from sixth-starting Jeremy Stremmel on lap 12.

Polesitter Todd Miller led the first four laps before he was caught by Stremmel. Furman followed Stremmel around Miller for second at the same time and chased the #8 car for seven laps before making the race-winning pass on the backstretch.

Miller hung on for third, with Chad Stine and Larry Landis completing the top five.

The lone qualifier for the street stocks was won by Kelly Seal.

Next Friday (8/8), Trail-Way will host the 358 Sprint Cars, Limited Stocks, 600cc Micros, and 1000cc Sidewinder Sprints. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. and racing begins at 7:30 p.m.

Twenty-six cars took the green flag in the 17th running of the TRAFFIC JAM for modifieds but before the first lap was completed, the caution was out for Jeff Strunk who stopped on the track. On the restart, Duane Howard and Mike Gular tangled exiting turn four and the yellow was displayed once again. A mis-communication with the flagman was the cause of the Howard and Gular yellow and both drivers returned to the positions where they we running prior to the caution.

The restart saw Matt Sheppard set the pace with Rick Laubach immediately challenging for the lead. By lap three, Laubach was the race leader and Duane Howard was in the chase running third. Laubach challenged Sheppard for second then on lap night, Howard moved into second. Sheppard continued to fight back then on lap fifteen, Howard was able to break-away from Sheppard and set his sights on race leader Rick Laubach. On lap twenty-one, Laubach, Howard and Sheppard were in a three car battle for the lead with Laubach holding down the lead.

At the halfway point of the race, Laubach, Howard, Sheppard, Craig VonDohren and Keith Hoffman were the top five. The race for the lead became very serious once again as Howard was not challenging Laubach for the lead. On lap thirty-five, third place runner Matt Sheppard retired to the pits advancing VonDohren, Hoffman and Gular now in the top five. Back at the front of the pack, Laubach opened a slight lead over Howard.

The race leaders quickly came up on slower traffic on lap forty-two with Laubach and Howard now side-by-side. Laubach pulled ahead by three car lengths and by lap forty-four, Howard was again challenging for the lead. Laubach again moved ahead with a three car advantage and on lap forty-eight, Howard was back in the hunt for the win.

Laubach and Howard battled lap after lap and the two front runners never touched.

With just ten laps remaining, Keith Hoffman was moving in on the leaders. On lap fifth-one, Howard took another run and challenged Laubach for the lead. With five lap remaining, Laubach was setting the pace but Howard remained within striking distance and now third place runner Keith Hoffman could see the race leaders. With the checker flag waiving, Rick Laubach took the win, his first ever Thunder on the Hill and Grandview Speedway victory. Duane Howard finished an impressive second followed by Keith Hoffman, Craig VonDohren and Mike Gular.

The 410 sprints took part in time trials with Greg Hodnett setting fast time of the night. The three heat race events were won by Lance Dewease, Davey Sammons and JJ Grasso.

In the 35 lap feature event, Davey Sammons led the first lap with the caution being displayed on lap two for Steve Buckwalter (driving the Mark Coldren sprinter) who stopped in turn four.

The restart saw Sammons quickly establish himself as the one to beat setting a blistering pace. JJ Grasso challenged Sammons for the lead on lap eight with Lance Dewease racing in third. By lap ten, Dewease was challenging Grasso for second.

On lap twelve, the changing point of the race took place when Lance Dewease tangled with Mark Smith entering turn three, collecting Alan Krimes. The three cars came to a stop along the third turn wall. Smith and Krimes were able to restart and Sammons and Grasso battle was to resume again. As the field passed on lap seventeen, Grasso was all over Sammons for the lead and now third place runner Greg Hodnett was in the battle for the lead. On lap twenty-one Hodnett took the lead with Grasso following in second, Sammons third, Freddie Rahmer fourth and Billy Dietrich fifth. Ryan Smith was reeling in to the five at the same time.

By lap twenty-seven, Ryan Smith was fourth with an eye now on Rahmer.

With just five laps remaining, Hodnett thought he was getting a flat tire so he slowed to preserve the tire in the closing laps. Once again , Grasso reeled in the leader but just ran short of time to make a bid as Hodnett clearly had the field covered. Grasso turned in a strong second followed

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

A Capsule Look At Port Royal Dream Race 2014

7/28/14

What, Where, When: The Port Royal Speedway Living Legends Dream Race honoring Lance Dewease and Maynard Boop is this Saturday, August 2 at 7 pm. Gates will open at 4 pm. The adult general admission price is $27 with students ages 12 – 18 admitted for JUST $5.

What’s It About: The Living Legends Dream Race was begun at Port Royal Speedway in 2007 as a way to post a lucrative payoff for Pennsylvania’s 410 sprint car stars that didn’t force them to compete against an outside sanctioning body for the money. It also includes a boatload of free contingency prizes and cash, this year amounting to over $10,000 in value. In short, it’s a way to give back to all the local drivers in a special way.

Special This Year: As part of honoring Lance Dewease and Maynard Boop as Living Legends this year, a group of former Boop drivers and Dewease owners will be on hand for autographs under the grandstand from 5 to 6 pm. Aside from Dewease and Boop, those taking part in the meet and greet are Boop drivers Lynn Paxton, Randy Wolfe and Ed Zirkle along with Boop mechanics Dave Brown Sr. and Ralph Heintzelman Sr. For Dewease the list includes owners Joe Templin, Harry Earnest, Walt Dyer, Al Hamilton, Pete Postupack, Donny Owens and Scott and Chris Dietz. Honors will be bestowed upon Dewease and Boop during the racing program. Several restored and replica Boops No. 1 and Dewease mounts will be on display behind the grandstand along with Dewease’s current No. 14 mount.

How It Works: Sprint car teams will time trial and then those in even qualifying spots and those in odd qualifying spots will be split into respective groups. Each of those batches of cars will compete in a 16-lap semi-main event that pays a full purse of nearly $10,000 each with $2,000 to the winner. The semis will be lined up with an invert of four however the fast timer in each semi will have the option to reach into a bag for a 50/50 shot at pulling out a 0 or a 6 for the invert. The top 10 finishers from each semi advance to a 35-lap A Main paying $10,000 to win. The top three finishers from each semi will revenge draw against each other to establish the front three rows of the Dream starting grid while all others line up according to their finishing position in the semis. Each lap of the semis and the A Main pays $20 to lead. After the A feature a non-qualifiers race will be run paying $500 to win and $150 to start. A B Main will fill out the A field plus a fan voted 25th starter will be added to the field.

On The Line: With the addition of a non-qualifiers race last season, the total purse money posted for this year’s dream race is again over $55,000. The contingency cash up for grabs on the night is worth over $3,000 and the contingency prizes have reached a value of about $10,000. The minimum prize value is $50 so that value coupled with last place pay in a semi of $200 and starting money in the non-qualifiers race of $150 means that no car should leave the track after entering with less than $400 in accrued earnings on the night.

What Fans Can Expect: Extremely competitive racing action will unfold for the Dream event as no heat races are conducted but instead the twin semi mains will advance drivers to the big dance while also paying handsomely. How each driver finishes the semis will determine where they start in the Dream feature. And then nearly $35,000 alone is up for grabs in the Dream A feature which promises to be highly rewarding both in stature and finances. There is no opportunity for teams and drivers to skip a beat, miss a step or lay back for a second chance as they try to come away big winners.

Marks Scores First Port Royal Win Against Strong Field, Smith Gets First In Lates

Tyler Bear becomes first repeat winner in Port 305 action

7/26/14

Port Royal ? Brent Marks beat a highly competitive field of 410 sprints to record his first ever Port Royal Speedway victory on Saturday night, taking $3,000 for the win while becoming the 11th different winner in 12 events held at the track so far this season.

In the super late model main Tim Smith Jr. continued the trend of no repeat winners in the division by becoming the 10th different pilot to visit victory lane in as many races this season while also setting a new 20-lap track record in the affair.

And in the 305 sprint main Tyler Bear became the first repeat winner of the year in the class.

Marks started second in the 25-lap 410 sprint main and took the lead when the race began over Ryan Taylor and Doug Esh.

Fifth starter Rick Lafferty had no problem passing in the event and drove up to second with three away in the race before the first caution flag of the event unfurled with five in the book.

The restart placed Lafferty, Esh, Taylor and Mike Wagner in line behind the leader.

Greg Hodnett blasted from sixth to fourth when action resumed while eighth starter Blane Heimbach also began a march into contention.

A second and final caution period regrouped the field with 12 laps to go, finding Heimbach up to fifth by that point.

Hodnett jumped into third on the restart and as the race wound down Lafferty began significantly biting into Marks? advantage.

With five to go the front four cars of Marks, Lafferty, Heimbach now up to third and Hodnett were within a half straightaway of each other, working through traffic to finish the race.

With less than three laps to go Lafferty made his move for the win, taking the lead underneath Marks in the second corner but when Marks saw his challenger it seemed to hoist his elbows up just a bit.

The Myerstown driver moved down as the pair raced onto the backstretch and got enough of a run to pinch Lafferty off and slip back into the lead just before the scoreboard.

From that point on Marks went into defense, protecting the bottom groove to hold onto the win by .572 seconds at the finish.

Lafferty was second with Heimbach third followed by Hodnett and 10th starter Lance Dewease.

Sixth through 10th went to Mike Wagner, Esh, Dave Ely, Aaron Ott and Taylor.

Heats for the 25-car field went to Wagner, Hodnett and Taylor.

Derrick Casner led only the first lap of the 20-lap late model main before Tim Smith Jr. took over at the helm.

Rance Garlock motored by Casner for second with five laps in the book but failed to close on Smith for the lead, instead being forced to contend with point leader Mike Lupfer.

Lupfer wrestled second from Garlock with 12 laps to go and was able to close in on Smith but he couldn?t get close enough to mount a challenge.

Smith ended up taking two seconds off of the 20-lap track record, establishing a new mark at 7:14.004.

Matt Parks blasted into third, getting around Garlock with a third turn flyer after starting seventh in the field.

Garlock was fourth and Tim Wilson was fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Mitch Hack, Nick Dickson, Casner, Scott Flickinger and Brett Schadel.

Heats for the 17-car field went to Schadel and Garlock.

Erin Statler led the first 12 laps of the 20-lap 305 sprint feature before Tyler Bear got to the front to take control.

Wayne Dadetto trailed Statler early on before Bear entered the mix, shuffling him to third at the finish.

Paul Snyder rode home fourth with Eric Parker finishing fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Jeff Miller Jr., Jake Waters, Scott Ellerman, John Braim and Mike Wagner II.

Heats for the 21-car field went to Statler, Wagner II., and Parker.

Chase Dietz pads points lead with second 2014 “358” sprint car win; Aaron Bowes wins 600 Modified special

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 7/26/2014 – Brian Montieth said it was tough, but the four-time track champ made it look easy in scoring his second win of the year and 43rd victory of his career at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

“I knew it was going to be tough. Luckily, we all started back there,” said Montieth upon exiting the Jerry Parrish-owned Auto Locator/Premier Auto Works #21 in victory lane, “I thought Alan (Krimes) was gone. I’m trying to put the pressure on him because he can’t tear the car up. He HAS to finish races to try and win this championship, and I can ball one up. I’d love see him win it, but I’d like to come from that far behind to take this thing, too.”

Montieth, who missed a race while vacationing earlier in the year, moved into second in points behind Krimes with the 4.25-second win over Krimes.

Montieth started tenth and caught Krimes for fifth on lap six. He got buy Billy Dietrich to move into fourth a lap later, took third from Matt Boland (with Dietrich and Krimes following him through) on lap nine, and moved around early-race leader Tim Wagaman on lap 13.

At the time, race leader Ryan Wilson (who started second and took the lead from polesitter Wagaman on lap eight) enjoyed a 3.85-second lead.

Montieth reduced Wilson’s lead to 1.5 seconds by the time the only caution of the race came out for Bradley Howard’s spin in turn two of lap 19. Howard collected Gerard McIntyre in the spin, and the yellow put Montieth on Wilson’s tail for the restart.

“He (Wilson) was getting into that dirty air there in lapped traffic. He was starting to have to make choices what he wanted to do when he got to those care, and it’s always better running second than running first.”

Montieth made short work of Wilson, sliding in front of him through turns one and two of the restart. Krimes caught Wilson a lap later, but had nothing for the four-time track champ.

“I enjoy coming to this place versus everywhere else,” said Montieth, “I’m a short track guy and I just love this.”

Danny Dietrich came from 12th starting spot to catch Wilson for third with two laps to go. Wilson settled for fourth with Billy Dietrich fifth. Sixth through tenth were Cory Haas, 15th-starting Adam Wilt, Wagaman, Freddie Rahmer, and Jim Siegel.

Heats for the 22 410 sprinters were won by Krimes, Billy Dietrich, and Montieth.

York’s Chase Dietz padded his points lead by winning his second of the year and third of his Lincoln career in the non-stop “358” sprint car feature.

Dietz, scheduled to start ninth, moved up one row when Phil Walter lost his brakes and stopped on the backstretch of the first lap. He came from seventh-starting spot to catch polesitter and race-long leader Chris Arnold on lap six. Dietz was actually running third by the end of the first lap. From there, he navigated methodically through lapped traffic as the non-stop laps clicked off. He took the checkered flag in front of eighth-starting Jeff Rohrbaugh in a time of 5 minutes, 47 seconds.

Third through fifth were Matt Campbell, 11th-starting Tyler Ross, and Chandler Leiby.

Defending track champ Niki Young, second in 2014 points, finished seventh.

Heats for the 28 358 sprinters were won by Walter, Leiby, and Mike Bittinger, with Cody Fletcher winning the consolation.

Nazareth’s Aaron Bowes took the $3,000 top prize in the highest-paying Xcel Chassis 600 Modified Tour event ever held over the 10-year history of the division. It was Bowes’ four straight Tour win.

Because he won the last event, Bowes was forced to start ninth in the event. He proceeded to pass a car a lap to take the lead from polesitter and race-long leader Ian Williamson on the ninth lap. Bowes led the rest of the way, crossing a half-second in front of Richie Hitzler, with Jonathan Pepe, Cody Coons, and 15th-starting Jason Dunkleberger rounding out the top five.

Heats for the 35 600 Modifieds were won by Abbey Price, Bowes, Hitzler, and Jonathon Pepe, with Kyle Fallis winning the consolation.

Next Saturday night, Sat., August 2nd, the 358 Sprinters headline the evening’s racing action with the 358 SPRINT CAR CHAMPIONSHIP. They will be joined by the Central PA Legends, 600cc Micro-Sprints, & All-American Outlaws. Gates will open at 5:50 PM, with heats taking the green at 7:30 PM.

McCLELLAND MANEUVERS FIELD FOR 5TH 358 SPRINT WIN AT T-W;

LAUGHMAN HOLDS OFF TRONE FOR 270 MICRO WIN;

MONTGOMERY WINS CENTRAL PA LEGENDS BATTLE;

CHRONISTER DOMINATES LIMITED STOCK FEATURE

Hanover, PA (07/25/14) – Points leader Brad McClelland and Robbie Kendall battled with each other and lapped traffic for the better part of the 25-lap 358 Sprint Car feature. McClelland made the race wining pass when Kendall slid high in turns 1 and 2 of lap 15.

“I kind of messed up right behind [Kendall],” said McClelland in victory lane, but McClelland was able to save the car and battle lapped traffic to claim his 5th win of the season.

But prior to that, polesitter Zach Euculano paced the field for the first 8 laps before getting out of shape exiting turn 4 and allowing Kendall to sneak by to take the lead.

McClelland also got by Euculano to take the second spot and closed on the new leader. McClelland followed Kendall for 6 laps until Kendall got out of shape as the duo caught the end of the field.

“[Kendall] was on the top, and I was on the bottom,” explained McClelland of the lapped traffic in which he passed Kendall for the lead, “I got a good run and it helped me out. But hey, it was fun.”

Five laps after taking the lead and 4 lapped cars later, McClelland finally saw open track in front of him. However, he nearly caught the tail-end of the field again as the checkered flag waved.

Kendall crossed 2.12 seconds behind McClelland and was awarded second. Third through fifth were Dwight Leppo, Euculano, and Shane Smith. Cody Fairchok, Tyler Buchenauer, Seth Kearchner, Isaac Sneeringer, and Randy Whisler completed the top ten.

McClelland was also presented with the Hard Charger Award as he came from 6th-starting spot to win.

Heat winners for the 15 358 Sprint Cars were won by Tyler Buchenauer and McClelland.

Bill Laughman started 6th for 270cc Micro Sprint feature, but found his way to the front to lead every lap of the 20-lap event. Joe Trone, Jr., who started outside the front row, followed Laughman for the entire race. Trone attempted to take the lead as the leaders closed on lapped traffic, but Laughman skillfully maneuvered around the slower cars to maintain the lead.

With Laughman and Trone approaching the checkered flag, the only caution of the event flew for Steven Cox who came to a stop in turn 1.

On the restart, Laughman pulled away from Trone and secured the victory. Trone crossed second with Joey Long, Cory Myers, and Brian Marriott rounding out the top five.

Qualifier winners for the 15 270cc Micro Sprints were Long and Laughman.

Lucas Montgomery fought his way from 10th-starting spot to claim the 20-lap Central PA Legends Car feature. But it didn’t come easily.

Montgomery became the fourth leader in the event when he went around Bill Diehl to take the lead on the 14th lap.

The race began with 2nd-starting Chris Transeau leading the first 2 laps. But then second place runner Chris Spidle and Transeau made contact exiting turn 2. The caution came out for a spin by Transeau and resulted in a rough-riding call on Spidle, sending both to the rear. Scott Gobrecht, who had been running 3rd, assumed the lead.

Gobrecht only led 1 lap before Diehl dove to the inside to take away the lead. The drivers running 2nd through 5th shuffled positions multiple times until Montgomery found his way to second on lap 13. It was the next lap that Montgomery made the pass on Diehl.

Diehl settled for second with Jacob Feltch, Bill Foster, and 17th-starting Bob Stough completing the top five.

Central PA Legends Car heats for the 18 cars were won by Spidle and Diehl.

Matt Chronister came from 9th-starting spot to claim his 5th win of the season in the 15-lap Limited Stock feature. Fourth-starting Terry Hartlaub stole the lead from outside front row starter Kenny Startzman on the second lap. Hartlaub led 6 laps until Chronister made a bold move for the top spot.

Chronister and Kyle Rohrbaugh (running 4th and 3rd respectively) split the 2nd place car of Shannon Weaver. Chronister took the high side and came across the line to lead lap 8.

From there, Points leader Chronister pulled away to a 4.84 second victory over Hartlaub, who finished second. Third through fifth were Rohrbaugh, 14th- starting Tom Senseney, and 11th-starting Cory Weishaar.

Matt Chronister and Startzman picked up the heat wins for the 19 Limited Stocks on hand.

Next Friday (8/1), Trail-Way will host the 358 Sprint Cars, Limited Stocks, Central PA Legends, and Street Stocks. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. and racing begins at 7:30 p.m.

Brent Marks Turns Tables On Hodnett For Williams Grove Sprints Win

Doug Hammaker scores for first time ever in 358 sprints

7/25/14

Mechanicsburg ? Brent Marks turned the tables on Greg Hodnett at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night and instead of chasing him to the checkers in the 410 sprint feature as he did a week earlier he took the win ahead of the oval point leader for his first Grove victory of the season.

In the 358 sprint main it was Doug Hammaker taking his first career win at the oval while becoming just the fourth driver to take a checkered flag in the division at the track this season.

Kyle Reinhardt started second in the 25 lap 410 sprint feature and took the lead at the start over Ryan Bohlke while Marks started in the sixth spot and drove to third on just the first lap.

Reinhardt would prove a formidable foe with the lead however as even on a restart after a flip by Danny Dietrich with six laps down Marks? failed to net the lead.

Instead Reinhardt thwarted Marks? advances in the corners however his entry into the backmarkers for the leader proved even more challenging and that?s where Marks was able to make his move.

Once working traffic Reinhardt suffered with being forced out of his rhythym and Marks drove low to take control with a third turn move with nine laps to go.

After falling to second Reinhardt suffered in traffic and contact with a lapped car the next time around sent him into the outside wall, setting up a final restart, still with nine laps to go.

Doug Esh lined up second ahead of Hodnett and Don Kreitz Jr. for the restart and when action resumed Esh got held up by a lapped car allowing Myers to drive away while Hodnett and Kreitz pounced for second.

Hodnett got the spot on the restart but failed to close on Marks, instead being forced to deal with Kreitz.

The pair waged a spirited battle over the final five laps with Hodnett holding on for the spot.

Kreitz was third followed by Esh and Aaron Ott.

Sixth through 10th went to Brian Montieth, Steve Buckwalter, Ryan Bohlke, Justin Barger and Alan Krimes.

Heats for the 29-car field went to Kreitz, Barger and Lance Dewease with Rick Lafferty taking the consolation.

Leah Starner led the first four laps of the 20-lap 358 sprint main before sixth starter Doug Hammaker took control of the race.

His pace was halted twice during the rest of his run at the front, once at the halfway point and again a lap later.

But both times Hammaker was able to get away from the field all the while point leader Kevin Nouse worked his way forward.

Nouse took second with five laps to go but failed to drive down any distance on Hammaker, who took the win by a straightaway.

Starner held on for third followed by Chris Arnold and Chandler Leiby.

Heats for the 17-car field went to Adrian Shaffer and Phil Walter.

July 25, 2014 Feature Finish:

410 sprints, 25 laps: 1. Brent Marks, 2. Greg Hodnett, 3. Don Kreitz Jr., 4. Doug Esh, 5. Aaron Ott, 6. Brian Montieth, 7. Steve Buckwalter, 8. Ryan Bohlke, 9. Justin Barger, 10. Alan Krimes, 11.

Port Royal Dream Offers 4 Sprint Car Mains August 2 As Dewease And Boop Feted

7/21/14

Port Royal – Port Royal Speedway is gearing up for the annual Living Legends Dream Race for 410 sprints coming up on August 2 at 7 pm.

The big money event will this year honor Lance Dewease and Maynard Boop as Living Legends in the track’s history.

A bevy of Dewease owners and Boop drivers will be turning out for the honors as well as an autograph session behind the grandstand from 5 until 6 pm.

Along with Dewease, Boop and their guests several restored Dewease No. 461 cars and Boop No. 1 cars will be on display.

Total purse prize money alone on the night for the sprints is now just over $55,000 not counting contingency cash and prize value.

The format will again be comprised of rich paying, main events only with thousands of dollars in contingency cash and prizes on the line for the sprint pilots.

Time trials will set the starting grids for the duo of 16-lap semi mains with the lineups for each main determined by odd numbered and even numbered time trailers after qualifying has been completed. ‘

Both the odd and even fast timer on the night will receive $100 but they will also have a decision to make as a guaranteed invert of four is promised for the semis however the pilots will have the chance to reach into a big for a chance at a 0 or a 6, if they so choose.

The top 10 finishers from each semi main will advance into the Dream A Main with a revenge draw then being held between the top three from each semi to set the front three rows of the Dream A.

Starting spots 21 – 24 in the Dream feature will transfer out of the consolation event while a 25th starter is awarded based on a fan vote.

Fans will get to cheer the loudest for each driver who finishes the consolation but fails to get a top four and the driver receiving the loudest response will get that valuable final A Main starting position.

Following the Dream A Feature the final sprint event of the night will be the Penske Shocks Non Qualifiers Main, paying $500 to win for all sprint drivers who failed to make the A Main starting grid.

The econo late models are also on the program with a pair of feature events, each paying full points toward the season title. Only the Dream A Main will award points in the sprint division.

Gates will open at 4 pm for the 2014 Dream Race honoring Lance Dewease and Maynard Boop.

Racing begins at 7 pm.

Adult general admission for the show is just $27 with students ages 12 – 18 set at the outstandingly low price of JUST $5.

SNEERINGER BREAKS OWN TRACK RECORD IN WINNING TRAIL-WAY 358 SPRINTS;

GALLAGHER HOLDS OFF KNAUB FOR 358 LATE MODEL WIN;

FURMAN NOW FOUR-FOR-EIGHT IN STREET STOCKS;

JASON CHRONISTER HOLDS OFF BROTHER IN LIMITED STOCKS

Hanover, PA (07/18/14) –Hanover’s Isaac Sneeringer set a new track record in winning his second race of the season in the 25-lap “358” sprint car feature at Trail-Way Speedway Friday night.

He had to.

Four-time winner Brad McClelland was hot on his tail.

“I knew if I made one mistake it was all over,” said Sneeringer upon exiting his DCI/Todd A. Gosnell Paving #19Z, “I’m exhausted.”

Sneeringer started fourth and grabbed the lead from outside front row starter Randy Whisler on lap three. Sixth-starting McClelland took second from Whisler on lap four and tracked down the leader as the two raced through lapped traffic in the non-stop feature. Though he challenged several times, McClelland was unable to make the pass.

“I was so hard on the brakes my left leg is killing me right now,” said Sneeringer, “I need to get a membership at Gold’s Gym because my arms are worn out.”

Sneeringer’s 25-lap time was 6:01.32, breaking his own 2012 record of 6:03.94.

Trail-Way points leader McClelland settled his second straight second-place finish, with Jeff Halligan, Whisler, and 12th-starting hard charger Dwight Leppo (last week’s winner) completing the top five.

Heats for the 13 “358” sprint cars were won by McClelland and Cody Fletcher.

Sam Gallagher started on the outside of the front row and led every lap of the 25-lap Precise Racing Products “358” late model feature. But his win didn’t come easy either, holding off sixth-starting Gene Knaub over the final 15 laps for his first career Trail-Way late model win.

Knaub tried to make the pass each time the leaders went through turns one and two, but was never able to get the upper hand and settled for second. Third through fifth were Cam Zeigler, Bobby Beard, and Pat Beard.

Heats for the 18 “358” late models were won by Knaub, Pat Beard, and Zeigler.

Dan Furman raced to his fourth win in eight events in the 20-lap street stock feature.

Furman started eighth and climbed through the field to grab the race lead from Pat McClane on lap ten.

He led the second half of the race despite heavy pressure from Michael Goodwin and McClane the rest of the way.

Goodwin finished second, followed by McClane, Cory Weishaar, and Joey Harrison.

Qualifiers for the 14 street stocks were won by McClane and Goodwin

The Chronisters finished first and second again in the 15-lap limited stock feature.

But this time, it was Jason holding off Matt for the win, his second of the year to go along with points leader Matt’s four wins on the year.

Jason started sixth and took the lead from Kenny Startzman on the second lap. Matt started tenth and took second from Ricky Weaver, Jr. on lap six. But Matt was never able to pass his brother, and settled for the runner-up spot.

Third through fifth were Ricky Weaver, Tom Senseney, and 12th-starting Kyle Rohrbaugh.

Heats for the 18 limited stocks were won by Cody Klinedinst and Startzman.

Next Friday (7/25), Trail-Way will host the 358 Sprint Cars, Limited Stocks, 270cc Micro Sprints, and Central Pa Legends. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. and racing begins at 7:30 p.m.

STP World Of Outlaws Summer Nationals Hit Williams Grove This Week

July 18 & 19 stand pits outlaws vs. posse, two-day sweep worth nearly 30K

7/13/14

Mechanicsburg – Williams Grove Speedway will present the two-day World of Outlaws Summer Nationals for sprint cars this Friday and Saturday, July 18 and 19.

Racing on both nights will begin at 7:30 pm.

Lineups both nights will be set using time trials with Friday’s feature going 25-laps in distance while paying $8,000 to win.

Saturday’s 30-lap finale will pay a hefty $20,000 to the victor.

If one driver can sweep the weekend he will pocket nearly $30,000.

The mid-summer outlaws invasion will continue the rivalry between the locals known as the Pennsylvania Posse and the World of Outlaws travelers.

Back in May when the outlaws made their first stop of the season at Williams Grove, traveler Daryn Pittman swept both days of action aboard a mount owned by Kasey Kahne.

Donny Schatz is the defending Williams Grove Summer Nationals champion.

Pittman won the Summer Nationals finale back in 2006 and again took a win in 2008.

The annual July Summer Nationals began at Williams Grove in 2002 as a three-day event before becoming a two-day affair in 2008.

Over the years, Posse stars Greg Hodnett, Lance Dewease, Donnie Kreitz, Fred Rahmer, Brian Leppo, Jason Johnson and Cody Darrah while still running locally have taken victories in Summer Nationals action.

Likewise, outlaws pilots Danny Lasoski, Joey Saldana, Paul McMahan, Craig Dollansky, Terry McCarl and Jason Meyers have also taken event wins along with Schatz and Darrah as a card carrier.

Schatz, Pittman, McMahan and Saldana all currently rank within the top five in the World of Outlaws point standings.

Aside from Friday programs at the oval, the Williams Grove Speedway Saturday Series, offering racing action with the Super Sportsman, 358 late models and street stocks at 6:30 pm is in full swing.

Saturday Series adult admission is JUST $5. And please remember, kids ages 12 and under are always admitted free at Williams Grove Speedway!

Layton Gets First Of Year In Port Royal Sprints,

Rine Invades For Late Model Chship, Tim Krape Wins First In Econo Lates

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

7/7/14

Port Royal ? Chad Layton finally put a bright spot into his season of struggles aboard the Middleswarth No. 7 sprint car when he found his way to victory lane at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night to claim his first win of the year anywhere.

In the 25-lap late model championship event Jeff Rine invaded and picked up the $2,000 win after trailing Port Royal point leader Mike Lupfer for the first half of the race.

And in the 355 econo late model main Tim Krape picked up his first-ever win in the new division at the track.

Polesitter Mike Wagner held off Layton?s attempt at taking control on the start of the 25-lap 410 sprint car main and pulled away early with Layton falling in line second.

Harrisonville?s Wagner, in a fight for his third career track title, entered the backmarkers on the sixth tour with Layton in tow and Curt Stroup in third.

Sixth starter Greg Hodnett pushed his way into third just shy of the halfway point and that?s about the same time that Layton began closing on the leader.

Wagner struggled with lapped traffic at times as a hectic pace was set around the track and Layton put on a dive deep in the third corner that netted the lead as he slid up and caught to cushion to get control.

The race went nearly non-stop but a caution flag unfurled with just two laps to go for a four-car tangle in the third and fourth turns that saw point leader Blane Heimbach sitting against the outside rail albeit minus a front wheel. Also involved was Scott Wilson, Ryan Taylor and Dylan Cisney.

Wagner tried a slider for the lead on the restart but a clean race between he and Layton allowed Layton to claw his way back in front as the pair raced toward the white flag.

Layton ended up taking the checkers by 1.110 seconds ahead of Wagner with Hodnett crossing third followed by Doug Esh and Stroup.

Sixth through 10th went to Mike Erdley, Rick Lafferty, Davey Sammons, Cisney and Taylor.

Heats for the 20-car field went to Hodnett and Stroup. Hodnett set a new 10-lap track record with his run of 2:39.221.

Rine started on the pole of the late model championship and tried to edge out Mike Lupfer for the lead at the start but Lupfer came out on top of a squeeze play by Rine as the pair raced into the first corner to take narrow control of the event.

Running around the cushion, although a change of lane for Lupfer, proved to be working for the Shermansdale speedster as he kept Rine at bay before the caution flag appeared with five laps recorded.

Matt Parks raced third behind the pair for the restart and when action resumed Lupfer continued to keep Rine at bay but during the second half of the event Lupfer began to search around the track looking for a better-suited groove for this yellow racer and a try at the bottom groove was all it took for Rine to blast the top in the second corner and take control with seven laps to go.

A final yellow set up a two lap dash to the finish but Rine went homefree to the victory by 1.466 seconds ahead of Lupfer, eighth starter Brett Schadel, Parks and 10th starter Coleby Frye.

Sixth through 10th went to Tim Wilson, Patrick Bryner, Rance Garlock, Nick Dickson and Scott Flickinger.

Heats for the 32-car field went to Wilson, Parks, Flickinger and Rine with Mitch Hack claiming the consolation race.

Fast time was set by Rine with a lap of 18.412 seconds.

Krape wired the field for the 15-lap econo late victory and took over the point lead in the division with the scratch of three-time winner Andrew Yoder from the event.

The Bellefonte driver withstook a trio of restarts to keep the win.

Todd Snook advanced from mid pack to finish second with Eric Irvin in third followed by Troy Miller and Jared Fulkroad.

Sixth through 10th went to Lucas Bryner, Brett Hockenberry, Devin Hart, Shaun Miller and Scott Daniels.

Heats for the 23-car field went to Lucas Bryner, Snook and Krape.

LINCOLN SPEEDWAY

Abbottstown, PA

UPCOMING SHOW:

Sat., July 19, 2014 – NO RACING

DEWEASE PREPARES FOR WORLD OF OUTLAWS WITH 37TH LINCOLN WIN;

Tyler Ross drives Eldreth #23J to second Lincoln win in “358” sprints; Zimmerman wins All-American Outlaw feature

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 7/12/2014 – Former champ Lance Dewease sounded like the 299-time sprint car winner that he is after scoring his 37th career win at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

“When we start where we did here tonight, we’d better win that thing!” said Dewease after exiting the C.C. Dietz/Conduit Connections/Hess Ornamental Iron Works #14 in victory lane, “You know Brian (Montieth) is coming on a track like this. I knew I had to get to the top and not come off of it. I also saw the 55 come up there. Robbie (Kendall) has been really fast here lately. He has my old mechanic working on that thing, and they have that car running around here really nice right now.

Handicapping placed Dewease fifth for the start. Matt Boland led the first 14 laps from his outside front row starting spot, before giving way to Dewease on lap 15. Dewease caught polesitter Nathan Berwager for fourth following a third-lap caution restart, got by Billy Dietrich for third on lap 12, and then moved past fourth-starting Tim Glatfelter for the runner-up spot on lap 14.

One lap later, Dewease made his race-winning move exiting turn four.

Meanwhile, Montieth, who started tenth, made his usual high-side charge to the front and caught Robbie Kendall for second on lap 19. Montieth tried the slider in turn four of the final lap, but wasn’t able to hold it and settled for second, 1.16 seconds behind Dewease.

“It’s not the year we’ve wanted, but we’re getting better on the short tracks, and we’re here in victory lane. That’s all that matters,” said Dewease, “We’ve had our ups and downs this year. When we think we’re getting better, we take a couple steps back. Then we come back forward a little bit. But that’s all part of growing with a new team. Different parts…different pieces…different year. We’re slowly getting on it. Our Speedweek was really good at the short tracks and really bad at the big tracks, which is kinda’ opposite for me.”

Third through fifth were seventh-starting Kendall, Dietrich, and Boland. Sixth through tenth were 13th-starting Cory Haas, points leader Alan Krimes, Glatfelter, J.J. Grasso, and Gerard McIntyre, Jr.

Heats for the 24 410 sprinters were won by Boland, Bill Stine, and Kendall.

Tyler Ross won in only his second appearance of the year in the 20-lap “358” sprint car feature. Ross, now driving the Tim Eldreth #23J, started sixth and took just six laps to catch polesitter and race-long leader Isaac Sneeringer for the lead.

He led the rest of the way despite a late-race challenge of seventh-starting Chandler Leiby, taking the checkered flag just six-tenths of-a-second in front of Leiby at the end for his second career Lincoln win.

Third through fifth were 11th-starting Niki Young, Jeff Halligan, and Matt Campbell. Sixth through tenth were “358” sprint championship winner Doug Hammaker, Sneeringer, Matt Findley, Jeff Rohrbaugh, and points leader Chase Dietz.

Heats for the 28 358 sprinters were won by Ross, Cody Fletcher, and Hammaker, with Chris Frank winning the consolation.

Pasadena, MD’s Kurt Zimmerman took advantage of a crash that involved the top three drivers to come from the back after an early-race spin and win the 20-lap All-American Outlaw feature.

Zimmerman started eighth after winning at Lincoln the last time out, and was running sixth behind Fred and Justin Cullum when leaders Hunter Nester, Randy Doty, and Dylan Keim all got together while racing for the lead on the front stretch of the 13th lap.

Nester and Doty both went to the pits, Keim joined the rear of the field and roared back for a fourth-place finish.

Zimmerman got by Justin Cullum on the restart, and then took the lead from Fred Cullum on lap 16, just before a caution came out for a spinning Jim Minter in turns three and four.

Zimmerman was never challenged the rest of the way for his second consecutive Lincoln win, crossing one second ahead of Fred Cullum, with Justin Cullum third, Keim fourth, and Carney Fryfogle completing the top five.

Heats for the 17 All American Outlaws were won by Nester and Zimmerman.

The WORLD OF OUTLAWS visit Lincoln Speedway this Thursday night, July 17th , for their second and final visit to the Pigeon Hills oval. Time Trials will get underway at 7:30 PM, with pits gates opening at 3 PM and general admission opening at 4 PM. There is no rain date for this show.

Then next Saturday night, July 19th, there will be no racing at Lincoln Speedway as the World of Outlaws will be at Williams Grove for the conclusion of the Summer Nationals.

DWIGHT LEPPO SCORES FIRST CAREER WIN IN TRAIL-WAY 358 SPRINTS;

Hanover, PA (07/11/14) –Everyone could see it coming. And it finally did for New Oxford’s Dwight Leppo, who held off the repeated challenges of all-time Trail-Way winner Brad McClelland to claim his first career “358” sprint car victory in the 25-lap feature Friday night.

“It feels good to finally be here!” exclaimed Leppo upon exiting his family-owned Auchey Body Shop/Leppo’s Garage #4 in victory lane, “I knew Brad would be right there. I’m glad he didn’t get me this time.”

Leppo started beside polesitter Denny Gross and led every lap.

Gross brought out the red flag when he flipped in turn two of lap four.

McClelland had some problems of his own, bouncing several times and losing third place to Seth Kearchner in turn four of the second lap. Once the race restarted after the Gross flip, McClelland reclaimed third from Kearchner on lap six, and then passed Isaac Sneeringer on turn two of an 11th-lap restart.

McClelland closed quickly on Leppo and was challenging for the lead by lap 15. Over the next five laps, the two leaders pulled away from the rest of the field. They actually made contact on the backstretch of lap 20, sending McClelland into the infield, but McClelland saved it and hung onto to the runner-up spot. Though he closed on the leader again, he was not able to make the pass.

Sneeringer hung on for third, with hard charger Robbie Kendall from 12th starting spot to cross fourth and Cody Fletcher fifth.

Heats for the 12 “358” sprinters were won by McClelland and Gross.

Travis Scott came from sixth starting spot to inherit the lead when Bo Gordon lost a chain on a 15th-lap restart and led the rest of the way in the 20-lap 600cc micro-sprint feature.

Jim Young started third and crossed second, with tenth-starting Brad Weber, ninth-starting David Holbrook, and 11th-starting Hannah Riser completing the top five.

Qualifiers for the 15 micros were won by Holbrook and Weber.

Logan Jones started on the pole and led every lap of the 15-lap ACMS 600cc stock micro-sprint feature event. It was a perfect night for the 14-year-old, who also won the lone heat for the six stock micros on hand.

Gunnar Layton, Drew Ritchey, Justin Whittail were the other cars that finished, crossing second through fourth.

Kyle Rohrbaugh, running a limited schedule this year, won his first race of the year in the 15-lap limited stock main event.

Rohrbaugh started sixth and took the lead from polesitter Mike Wolf on the second lap. He led the rest of the way, with 12th-starting Jason Chronister, Tom Senseney, Cody Klinedinst, and Matt Chronister completing the top five.

Heats for the 20 limited stocks were won by Wolf and Jason Chronister.

Jeremy Stremmel took to the top side to drive around both a lapped car and leader Dan Furman on the final turn to claim a thrilling win in the 20-lap street stock feature.

Furman came from 12th starting spot to claim the lead from Stremmel on lap 18. But Stremmel never gave up, and used the heavy lapped traffic to his advantage in making the last-turn pass.

Furman crossed less than a carlength behind in second, with Larry Landis, Michel Goodwin (who came from the back after replacing a flat tire), and Chad Stine rounding out the top five.

Heats for the 13 street stocks were won by Stremmel and Goodwin.

Next Friday (7/18), Trail-Way Speedway will host the 358 Sprint Cars, 358 Late Models, Limited Stocks, and Street Stocks. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. and racing begins at 7:30 p.m.

Stevie Smith Is Ready For Outlaws With Williams Grove 410 Sprint Victory

Kevin Nouse gets third in 358s

7/11/14

Mechanicsburg  Stevie Smith drove to his third 410 sprint car win of the season on Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway as he tuned up for next week?s World of Outlaws Summer Nationals with a victory worth $4,000.

In 358 sprint action it was Kevin Nouse of Lewisberry taking his third win of the season at the track as well.

Second starter Ryan Smith tried to lead the first lap but polesitter Cory Haas nipped him at the line to be scored in control.

Stevie Smith started fourth in the field and was third behind the pair almost immediately.

The eventual winner got around Ryan Smith for second on the third circuit and chased Haas for the lead for six tours before driving by for command as the pair raced out of the second corner.

Eyes then turned to ninth starter Brian Montieth who was up to fifth as Stevie Smith took the lead.

Montieth had worked his way up to third behind the leader and Haas by the time the races only caution flag unfurled with 10 laps to go in the 25 lap main for the stopped racers of Doug Esh and sixth runner Don Kreitz Jr.

Montieth overtook Haas on the restart and began his attempts at racing with the leader.

The Phoenixville flyer had closed right up on the leader?s bumper as the pair raced into the third corner headed for the two-to-go sign but when Smith hesitated as he worked traffic entering the turn, Montieth nearly crashed into him and was forced to lay on the brakes and turn the car partially sideways to avoid collision.

This in turn allowed Stevie Smith to drive away as Montieth tried to recover and Smith took the checkers by .441 seconds.

?This one?s just as fun as the first one, that?ll never wear off,? Smith said of taking the victory.

Car owner Fred Rahmer expressed his pleasure with the team?s third win of the year at the oval.

?I knew that Stevie was the best driver there is and he?s provin? it,? Rahmer said.

Lucas Wolfe drove from sixth starting spot to finish third followed by Ryan Smith and Gerard McIntyre Jr.

Sixth through 10th went to Steve Buckwalter, Greg Hodnett, Pat Cannon, Alan Krimes and Tim Glatfelter.

Heats for the 23 cars went to Wolfe, Ryan Smith and Haas. Haas won the dash to earn the pole for the feature.

Wolfe set his fifth quick time of the season in time trials with a lap of 17.077 seconds.

Brie Hershey lead the first four circuits of the 20-lap 358 sprint main before 10th starter Adrian Shaffer took over.

Shaffer appeared headed for his third win of the season while running on the cushion but with eight laps to go he jumped the cushion in the second corner, allowing Knouse to erase nearly all of the two-turn lead he had amassed at the front.

And then when Shaffer seemed to miss his entry with five to go in the third corner that was all it took for Knouse to drive across the middle of the track to take control.

A caution flag with a lap to go appeared for a tangle in the fourth corner that took out top five runners Ryan Wilson and Brock Zearfoss but Shaffer was helpless on the restart, instead settling for second.

Doug Hammaker was third followed by Rich Eichelberger and Hershey.

Heats for the 15-car field went to Shaffer and Brock Zearfoss.

July 11, 2014 Feature Finish:

410 sprints, 25 laps: 1. Stevie Smith, 2. Brian Montieth, 3. Lucas Wolfe, 4. Ryan Smith, 5. Gerard McIntyre Jr., 6. Steve Buckwalter, 7. Greg Hodnett, 8. Pat Cannon, 9. Alan Krimes, 10.

Lucas Wolfe Wins Port Royal First In PA Speedweek Action,

Matt Parks and Bill Powell take stock car mains

7/5/14

Port Royal – Lucas Wolfe of Mechanicsburg drove from sixth starting spot to win Saturday night’s PA Speedweek sprint car feature event at Port Royal Speedway worth $5,000, recording his elusive first every victory at the track as well as in the speedweek series itself anywhere by taking the checkers.

It was also Wolfe’s first win for his car owner’s John and Pee Wee Zemaitis since joining the team this season.

Wolfe started out the night by setting a new one-lap track record in qualifying over the 34-car field in attendance, setting the mark at 15.168 seconds, an average speed of 127.381 mph.

Matt Parks of Three Springs won for the first time this season in super late model action while Bill Powell took his third xtreme stock main of the year to close out the night.

With Wolfe aboard the potent Zemco No. 1 sprinter, his starting spot of sixth would prove to be the deepest of any of the 2014 speedweek winners to date.

Dave Blaney started the 30-lap main on the pole and took the lead over second starter Doug Esh when the race began.

The first 20 laps would go non-stop with Blaney entering the rear of the field on the eighth tour with Esh giving chase followed by Logan Wagner and Wolfe.

Wolfe advanced to third on the 13th lap and then riding the rail down low he drove by Esh with 12 laps to go.

Wolfe had run down leader Blaney by the time two-thirds of the race was completed as the Ohio driver worked his way flawlessly to that point through heavy and hectic lapped traffic.

And then with 10 laps to go the caution flag unfurled when Blaney gave up the lead after shredding a right rear tire as he raced down the frontstretch.

Only one more lap could be completed before Logan Wagner’s fine run came to and end when he coasted down the backchute.

Smith had taken second from Esh just before the yellow, thus forcing him back to third when action again began with nine laps left.

Smith got around Esh for second with four laps remaining and although he was able to close in on the leader by the finish Wolfe took the checkers by .588 seconds.

The victory put Wolfe in a tie with Greg Hodnett for the speedweek series title as both drivers ended the night with 895 points and just one show to go on the series schedule.

Esh settled for third followed by 10th starter Hodnett and Curt Michael.

Sixth through 10th went to 13th starter Mike Erdley, Brent Marks, Blane Heimbach, 23rd starter Danny Dietrich and Kyle Reinhardt.

Heats went to Blaney, Kyle Moody, Esh and Nate Snyder with Reinhardt taking the consolation race.

Newport’s Tim Fedder led the first eight laps of the 20-lap late model feature before Parks took control on a lap eight restart.

Parks was in third for that restart, having just lost the spot to Mike Lupfer before the caution, but when action resumed Parks made up for his loss of the second spot by blasting by both the second and first place cars to take the lead with 11 laps to go.

Once in front Parks pulled away to his seventh career checkers at the track by .599 second ahead of Lupfer, who took the spot with six laps to go.

Mitch Hack rode home third followed by Tim Smith Jr. and Justin Kann.

Brett Schadel went to the rear on the first lap and rebounded to cross the line sixth at the finish followed by Fedder, Lindsay Barton, Scott Flickinger and Eric Zembower.

Heats went to Parks, Nick Dickson and Hack.

Powell led all 15 laps of the xtreme stock feature.

He held off Bob Bussey for the entire distance to pick up the win with Bussey staging a final lap charge to steal the victory.

Jason Zook, Mike Goodwin and Craig Dodson rounded out the top five finishers.

DOUG HAMMAKER SCORES FIRST CAREER WIN IN LINCOLN 358 SPRINT CAR CHAMPIONSHIP;

MIKE WAGNER TAKES PASS RACESAVER 305 SPRINT FEATURE; CHRIS SPIDLE WINS LEGENDS FEATURE

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 7/5/2014 – Doug Hammaker took advantage of a lucky break on the final lap to score his first career win in the 25-lap “358” sprint car championship at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

Points handicapping placed Hammaker fourth for the start, and he was third behind pole sitter Troy Wagaman, Jr. and front row starter Brie Hershey at the end of the first lap. He drove around Hershey for the runner-up spot on a second-lap restart and then caught Wagaman for the lead on lap three. Though he led the rest of the way, he had to hold ninth-starting Kevin Nouse from the fourth lap on.

Nouse actually took the lead from the Delco Designs/Farnsworth Used Auto Parts #66 in heavy lapped traffic heading up the backstretch of the final lap, only to have the caution come out for Chris Arnold, who came to a stop in turn two. That gave the lead and a clear track back to Hammaker for the one-lap dash to the finish, and Hammaker hung on for a .65-second win over the Central PA Point Series leader and claim the $1,500 top prize.

Ryan Wilson came from 15th starting spot to pass Lincoln points leader Chase Dietz on the final lap and cross third, with Dietz settling for fourth and Nike Young completing the top five. Sixth through tenth were Chandler Leiby, Wagaman, Jay Galloway, Hershey, and Tyler Ross, who came from the back after a 15th-lap spin on the backstretch.

Ross’s spin came on a restart which followed a collision between Dietz and Robbie Kendall, who got together while racing for third. That ended Kendall’s night. Dietz kept going and was awarded third for the restart.

Heats for the 30 358 sprinters were won by Ross, Leiby, and Hammaker, with Brian Allman winning the consolation.

Harrisonville’s Mike Wagner II won his second career Lincoln race in the 20-lap Pennsylvania Sprint Series RaceSaver 305 sprint car feature. An inversion of three put Wagner on the pole, and, despite late-race pressure from Kody Lehman and another one-lap shootout, Wagner led every lap, crossing 2.81 seconds ahead of Lehman.

Third through fifth were John Braim, Mark Watkins, and Colby Dice.

Heats for the 25 PASS RaceSaver 305 Sprints were won by Ian Detweiler, Erin Statler, and Wagner.

Marysville’s Chris Spidle started on the pole and led every lap of the 15-lap Central PA Legends feature.

Like Wagner in the PASS sprints, he started on the pole by virtue of an inversion draw of three. And like Wagner, Spidle received heavy pressure from Lucas Montgomery and tenth-starting Bob Stough and had to hold them off over a final-lap shootout.

It was Spidle’s first career Lincoln win and third career win overall.

Montgomery and Stough finished second and third, with Bill Diehl and Chad Earnst completing the top five.

Heats for the 30 Central PA Legends were won by Montgomery, Diehl, and Chris Spidle, with Rick Hartwig winning the consolation.

Next Saturday, July 12th at 7:30 PM, it will be KIDS NIGHT! The 410 sprinters will be joined by the 358 Sprints and All American Outlaws. Gates open at 5:30 p.m., with heat racing getting underway at 7:30 p.m.

KENDALL SCORES THIRD WIN OF THE YEAR IN TRAIL-WAY 358 SPRINTS;

Hanover, PA (07/04/14) –It was Robbie Kendall’s night at Trail-Way Speedway Friday night.

Kendall started on the pole and drove away from the field in the 25-lap “358” sprint car feature, crossing under the checkered flag less than a half-second off the track record in a non-stop time of 6 minutes, 4.47 seconds for his third win of the year at the McSherrystown oval.

“These guys had this thing hooked up tonight,” said Kendall upon exiting the Mike Parris-owned Turning Stone Resort & Casino/Vermeer Mid-Atlantic/Wurtzer’s Garage #55 in victory lane, “We tore cars up the last two times out, and it’s just a pleasure to finish one.”

The Auto Racing Club of Hagerstown night feature saw Kendall and Ryan Wilson start on the front row. Kendall grabbed the lead at the outset and never looked back.

“We caught lapped cars at the right time tonight,” said Kendall.

And lapped cars there were, with only six of the 16 sprinters finishing on the lead lap.

Wilson ran second until slipping in turns one and two and losing the runner-up spot to third-starting Dwight Leppo, who finished a career-best second at the finish.

Four-time winner and Trail-Way points leader Brad McClelland started sixth and was challenging Leppo for second when he dove into the infield on lap 21.

That put Wilson back in third, and that’s where he finished, with Jeff Rohrbaugh crossing fourth in the Shane Smith #00 and last week’s winner Isaac Sneeringer rounding out the top five. The other car on the lead lap was Seth Kearchner.

Heats for the “358” sprint cars were won by McClelland and Sneeringer.

Dan Furman raced to his third win of the year in the 20-lap street stock feature.

Furman started seventh and took the lead from outside front row starter David Johnson on lap four.

Last week’s winner Michael Goodwin started last in the 11-car field and caught Larry Landis for second on the ninth lap. Pat McClane moved past Landis for third on the same lap, but then lost an axle and wheel on lap 16, handing the spot back over to Landis, who held the spot the rest of the way.

Fourth and fifth were ninth-starting Chad Stine and Joey Harrison.

Qualifiers for the street stocks were won by Landis and Jeremy Stremmel.

Scott Rickrode started on the pole and led every lap of the 15-lap Penn-Mar Vintage Race Car Club’s Scott Coghill Memorial.

Curt Neiman, Rick Pastor, Pete Cobb, and Mark Rickrode rounded out the top five.

It was a perfect night for Rickrode, who also won the lone qualifier for the eight vintage cars.

Brothers Jason and Matt Chronister finished first and second in the 15-lap limited stock feature.

It was Jason’s first win of the year. He started sixth and took the lead from outside front row starter Justin Oberlin on lap three. Brother Matt started 12th and took second from Cody Klinedinst on the next-to-last lap. Klinedinst, with heavy smoke pouring from the car, faded to fifth at the end.

Ricky Weaver, Jr. crossed third, with Tom Senseney, Jr. fourth.

Heats for the 18 limited stocks were won by Senseney and Aaron Levin.

Next Friday (7/11), Trail-Way Speedway will host the 358 Sprint Cars, Limited Stocks, Street Stocks, 600cc Micros and ACMS 600 Micros. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. and racing begins at 7:30 p.m.

Stevie Smith Trumps In Williams Grove Speedweek Mitch Smith Memorial

7/4/14

MECHANICSBURG, PA – Stevie Smith chased Brian Montieth through lapped traffic for the first 26 laps of the Mitch Smith Memorial Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway.

Smith then drove under Montieth in turn three and emerged the leader on lap 27 and would control the final three laps to take home the $10,000 paycheck in the sixth race of Pennsylvania Sprint Car Speedweek.

Montieth and Smith shared the front row for the start of the 30-lap main event and Montieth grabbed the lead off turn two.

“Fred and I talked about it and he said if Montieth gets the lead, just run your groove and get with him and we did and we were able to slide by him,” said Smith. “It was a really good night. These guys are good with the set-ups and they do a really good job with the car. I’m getting more and more confident and it feels really good.”

Brent Marks drove by Chad Layton and into third. Montieth was racing around heavy lapped traffic and Smith was able to close.

Montieth momentarily cleared traffic and so did Smith, who was now about 10 car lengths back. Montieth didn’t have clear track very long as he caught traffic again with 10 laps completed

Montieth cleared three lapped cars and had a clear track again on lap 13. Smith and Marks were still caught behind a few lapped cars.

Montieth had an open track and then Smith cleared traffic as well. Marks was up to third and Donnie Kreitz moved by Layton and into fourth. Lucas Wolfe also drove by Layton and into the top five.

Montieth continued to hammer the cushion and Smith was checking out the bottom just a few car lengths back in lapped traffic.

Montieth slid by rookie Austin Hogue in turn one and scrubbed some speed. Smith was right there and as they raced into turn three, he was able to slide in front of him and take the lead with 27 laps completed. Smith maintained the lead through the first and second turns and down the backstretch.

Montieth blasted under Smith entering turn three and they traded the lead. Smith led Montieth at the line. Behind the race for the lead was Grove point leader Donnie Kreitz closing in.

Very heavy traffic was in front of the leaders, but the first caution flag of the race flew with two laps remaining for Mike Wagner who blew a right rear tire and stopped on the frontstretch.

Smith got a good restart and no slider came from Montieth as he and Kreitz went to the bottom.

Smith led under the white flag and rolled right through the middle of the turns. He would score the win as Montieth just held off Kreitz for second. Brent Marks and Lucas Wolfe were in the top five.

“We were too good, too early,” said Montieth. “I knew we were going to be in trouble. The car was really good the first 10 laps. I was trying to get as many lapped cars between us as I could. We should have started with the car tighter.”

Greg Hodnett, Cory Haas, Dave Blaney, Chad Layton and Doug Esh completed the top 10.

Wolfe set fast time over the 39-car field with a lap of 16.811 seconds. It was Wolfe’s fourth fast time during Speedweek competition. Kreitz, Layton, Marks and Montieth were the top five qualifiers.

The 10-lap heat races were won by Blaney, Haas, S. Smith and Marks. T.J. Stutts won the B-main.

Port Royal July 3 Speedweek Falls To Rain, Speedweek Returns July 5

7/3/14

Port Royal – With nearly 30 sprint cars signed in for PA Speedweek action on Thursday night at Port Royal Speedway, a relentless rain forced cancellation of the program at approximately 8:15 pm.

A torrent of rains and high winds pelted the speedway around 3 pm with sporadic rainfall lasting until 6 pm however oval officials opened the gates and pressed on, preparing the track in an effort to get the show underway and completed.

And considerable progress had been made with thoughts turning to engine starts when a few quick downbursts of rain in the very humid air ruined any chances of reclaiming the already saturated surface.

Rainchecks will be good for the PA Speedweek event coming up at Port Royal in just two days, on Saturday, July 5 at 7:30 pm. Gates will open at 4 pm.

Those adult general admission fans who wish to redeem their Thursday rainchecks for Saturday’s races will simply have to pay the $2 up charge between the face value of the $20 raincheck from Thursday and Saturday’s price of $22.

The entire Port Royal raincheck policy can be found on portroyalspeedway.com.

Saturday’s speedweek show on July 5 also includes the Enviroman Products/Jake’s Carts super late models plus a feature for the Len Krautheim Auto Sales xtreme stocks to close out the night.

Saturday’s speedweek winner will garner $5,000 for a 30-lap victory and $100 is up for grabs to the fast timer, courtesy of Packer’s Concessions of Centre Hall.

Prior to the races on Saturday, a free performance by Last Men Standing will take place on the stage behind the grandstand.

Last Men Standing is a local band that showcases rock music spanning from the 1950’s to now.

Adult admission Saturday for the super sprint/super late model show is JUST $22 and students are priced at JUST $5.

 

 

HAGERSTOWN SPEEDWEEK TRIUMPH FOR HODNETT MAKES IT TWO IN A ROW

HAGERSTOWN, MD – Scoring the triumph in Tuesday’s 24th Annual PA Sprint Car Speedweek event at Grandview, Greg Hodnett headed South of The Border to Hagerstown Speedway on Wednesday for night five of the series and ended the night in victory lane for the second consecutive night.

Hodnett was sixth quick in time trials and sat on the pole for the inverted six car field. Trailing Donnie Kreitz Jr. for the first 20 laps, he pulled the trigger on a lap 20 restart and that was all it took as he went the rest of the way to beat Lucas Wolfe by 1.75 seconds for the $5,000 victory and increased his series point lead.

“We just got really lucky on starting position and was able to take advantage of it,” Hodnett said. ”We brought out a new car Friday and have been struggling with it and struggling with it. We brought this one here today and we’re trying to figure it out. It’s a little different, but hopefully we can gain on it by the end of the week.”

Lucas Wolfe was the fast timer with a lap around the half mile oval in 15.208, short of the 14.945 record set by Mark Kinser in 1999.

Heat wins went to Hodnett, Brent Marks and night three Path Valley winner Brady Bacon while Danny Dietrich was the consolation winner.

When the green flag waved, Kreitz was like a rocket off the outside row as he exited the second turn hammer down with Hodnett, Mike Wagner and Wolfe beginning to give chase. As the field stretched out, Kreitz was to the rear by lap eight with a caution two laps later when Aaron Ott came to a stop.

Kreitz maintained control on the restart and pulled away but Hodnett began to close in when Kreitz was to the rear cars again on the 18th lap and Hodnett was to his back bumper. While they were working through several cars on the tail end, the yellow again waved when Wagner suffered a flat and was sitting in the third turn.

When the green put the field in motion this time, Hodnett charged under and quickly sped from the second turn and was stretching his lead while Wolfe ducked under for the runner up spot on the 22nd lap.

Hodnett was in total control the final ten circuits as Wolfe was not close enough to mount a challenge with Kreitz and Stevie Smith in the next positions while fifth place went to night one winner at Williams Grove, Danny Dietrich who came all the way from 19th starting position.

“Donnie had the wing back and was having problems keeping the front end off that curb,” Hodnett said. “From about laps 15 to 20 when we got into traffic, he had his wing back and was trying to run underneath it but his car wasn’t sticking quite as good and I think he was a little hesitant of getting in. I think his car couldn’t steer to be honest. He looked like he had to get the front end back down and I figured if I stayed close enough on the front straightaway, I was going to try it and if it worked, it worked and if it didn’t, I was going to run second, third, fourth, it didn’t really matter. So it just happened to stick and I blew across there and had enough momentum and came out the other side.”

Brent Marks finished sixth with Alan Krimes, Bacon, defending race winner Dave Blaney and Blane Heimbach completing the top ten.

NAPA AUTO PARTS THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES

NAPA AUTO PARTS THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES EVENT 112 WAS A THRILLER FOR FANS. . . . . . . . GREG HODNETT WINS MACH 1 CHASSIS SPRINT FEATURE AS DUANE HOWARD TOPS ALL IN PPB RACE OF CHAMPIONS MODIFIED FEATURE TUESDAY AT GRANDVIEW

It could very well go down as one of best nights of racing in 2014!

The large crowd on hand was thriller with two spectacular feature events Tuesday night at the Grandview Speedway as the Thunder on the Hill Racing Series celebrated their twenty-fifth season. Greg Hodnett won the 35 lap Pennsylvania Sprint Speed Week 410 sprint feature event presented by MACH1 Chassis as Duane Howard rebounded after a wild crash Saturday night to win the Pioneer Pole Buildings Race of Champions 60 lap feature event. Both feature events were spectacular with the feature winners in both events being decided on the final laps. For the one-hundred and twelfth event in Thunder on the Hill Racing, a total purse in excess of $50,000 was paid to the two divisions.

The NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing welcomed a big turnout of racing fans as the event opened with the CnB Mushrooms 410 sprint time trials. Lucas Wolfe driving the ZEMCO sprint car set fast time, turning the one lap with a time of 12.032. The three 410 sprint qualifying events were won by Brent Marks, Austin Wheatley and Kyle Reinhardt.

The Modified Race of Champions qualifying event winners were Rick Laubach, Stew Friesen, Craig VonDohren and Duane Howard with the consolation victory going to John McClelland.

Both fields were set and the fast moving show was now ready to present the MACH 1 Chassis 35 lap sprint feature.

Greg Hodnett, driving the Mike Heffner sprint car set the early pace followed by Darren Mollenoyux and Lucas Wolfe. By lap seven Wolfe was second and chasing down Hodnett. Alan Krimes and Danny Dietrich were on their way to the front of the pack. On lap fourteen, Wolfe caught Hodnett and staged the first challenge for the lead with Alan Krimes racing in third.

As the halfway point of the race, Hodnett, Wolfe, Danny Dietrich, Krimes and Mollenoyux were the top five. On lap nineteen, Dietrich, using the outside lane, moved into second and he began to chase down the leader. On lap twenty-four, there were three cars racing under a blanket for the lead with Hodnett, Dietrich and Dewease in a battle. Lap after lap Dietrich rode the outside boiler-plate as he challenged Hodnett for the lead.

On lap twenty-four, Lucas Wolfe now joined the battle for the lead with Brent Marks just outside the top five. Hodnett, Dietrich and Wolfe were no in a three way battle for the lead. Dietrich made a challenge for the lead lap after lap then on lap twenty-eight, Lucas Wolfe moved into second. Wolfe now challenged for the lead and with just two laps to go, Hodnett and Wolfe crossed the line side-by-side. Hodnett held off the challenges of Wolfe to score his seventh career Thunder on the Hill victory and collected $5,000.

In the sixty lap PPB Race of Champions feature, pole sitter Stew Friesen led the first lap with Rick Laubach taking the top spot on lap two. The one and only caution flag of the race came out on lap two for Craig VonDohren who had a flat tire. On the restart, Friesen remained the leader with Laubach in the hunt. MeMe DeSantis passed Laubach for second on lap five, but one lap later, Laubach returned to second. Duane Howard, who flipped violently on Saturday night was in the hunt and running third.

On lap fifteen, a three car battle for the lead was unfolding between Friesen, Laubach and Howard. As the leaders approached lapped traffic, Friesen appeared to have an edge, pulling away from the rest of the field. As the field approached the halfway point of the race, Jeff Strunk was now reeling in the leaders, making it a four car race for win. As the field passed on lap thirty-eight, Friesen, Laubach, Howard and Strunk were now surrounded by slower traffic as the four drivers began to duke it out for the lead. Howard moved into second and began his job to reel in the leader.

It was a new race on lap forty as Rick Laubach became the new leader and by lap forty-two, Howard was second with Friesen third and hard charging Jeff Strunk was now running in fourth. With just ten laps to go, the race became more interesting as Laubach, Howard and Strunk were in the chase for the lead. Howard regained the lead on lap fifty-two and by lap fifty-six, Laubach was again back on top.

With three laps to go, Laubach, Howard and Strunk were not only dodging each other but a list of slower cars just ahead of the leaders. On lap fifty-eight, Howard took the lead with Laubach and Strunk side-by-side for second. With the checker flag waiving, Duane Howard took the victory to collect the $5,000 first place prize. Rick Laubach finished second followed by Jeff Strunk, Stewart Friesen and Keith Hoffman.

Williams Grove Is July 4th PA Speedweek Stop, 10G To Win Mitch Smith Memorial Slated

6/29/14

Mechanicsburg ? Williams Grove Speedway will host the biggest event of the 24th Pennsylvania Speedweek series this Independence Day, Friday, July 4 at 7:30 pm when it hosts the 26th annual Mitch Smith Memorial for sprint cars, paying a hefty $10,000 to win out of a purse worth over $30,000.

The Mitch Smith Memorial will be the second 2014 speedweek date slated for the track after Williams Grove began this year?s speedweek on June 27 when Danny Dietrich took an exciting victory worth $5,000.

Friday?s Mitch Smith Memorial will use time trials to set the field as do all speedweek events and the feature will be 30 laps in distance.

A special holiday fireworks display is also slated during the program.

The Saturday Series 358 late models will also be on the July 4 racing card.

The Mitch Smith Memorial began in honor of the late star in 1989.

Known affectionately to most as the ?Linglestown Leadfoot,? Smith was one of the most electric sprint car stars to ever grace the Cumberland County oval and the Central Pa region with his talents.

Perhaps his biggest claim to fame was his trumping of the world-renowned USAC sprint car stars when they came east to Williams Grove Speedway in 1971.

For comparison purposes, USAC was in 1971 what the World of Outlaws is to sprint car racing today.

They just simply didn?t get beat.

Except by Mitch Smith in Central Pa in 1971.

The USAC?ers were furious.

The PA drivers and fans were famous.

At the end of his four-decade career in 1978, Mitch Smith had amassed 179 overall total career feature wins including 27 in a sprint car and nine in a super modified at Williams Grove alone.

Smith drove for owners like Mary Flack in the Flying Tiger, John Regester, Gary Wasson and Al Hamilton in the famed No. 77.

After being felled by a massive heart attack in 1988, Smith was posthumously inducted into the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame in 1995.

Fred Rahmer and Lance Dewease have done the best in the Smith Memorial over the years, each owning four victories.

Already a winner at the track this season on two occasions including just last week, Danny Dietirch is the defending winner of the Mitch Smith Memorial.

Aside from Friday programs at the oval, the Williams Grove Speedway Saturday Series, offering racing action with the Super Sportsman, 358 late models and street stocks at 6:30 pm is in full swing.

Saturday Series adult admission is JUST $5. And please remember, kids ages 12 and under are always admitted free at Williams Grove Speedway!

MOODY HOLDS OFF USAC INVADER BACON FOR FIRST CAREER WIN IN LINCOLN PA SPEEDWEEK SHOW;

Bob Stough scores first career Lincoln win in Central PA Legends

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 6/28/2014 – Kyle Moody recovered from a rough start to come back in claim his first career 410 sprint car feature win and the $7,000 top prize in night #2 of PA Speedweek at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

After dropping to fifth on the first lap, Moody passed both USAC invader Brady Bacon and Tim Glatfelter on laps eight and nine to climb to his original starting spot.

While running third, Moody saw second-place Glenndon Forsythe bring out the red flag with a 360 airborne spin in turns three and four of lap 18. During the race stoppage, race-long leader Adam Wilt went to the pits with a flat right rear, placing Moody in the lead for the restart.

“God works in mysterious ways, doesn’t he?” said a jubilant Moody after his wing dance in victory lane, “What are the chances of losing both cars running in front of me? And not getting caught up in it was just amazing!.”

“On the start I totally fumbled up, and all those cars got by me…and I thought ‘Shoot, I don’t think I’m going to be able to get back up there,” said Moody, “There were a lot of good cars up there and I knew I had to bide my time. I knew I had a good car all night tonight. We were fighting some engine problems that were unknown, and I decided to put my head down and not worry about it…and keep running like we did.”

On his tail for the restart were Glatfelter and Bacon. Bacon caught Glatfelter for the runner-up spot with nine laps to go, and closed on the leader. But it was Moody’s night, as the ISSC/Kanson Electronics/Keener Coatings #99M crossed .72 seconds in front at the finish.

“It means everything,” said Moody of his Lincoln win, “This has been my dream since I was eight years old when I started coming here and this is it right here. A big thanks to Cory Laucks, who has made this thing a rocket ship this year. And thanks to my mom and dad and girlfriend for their support, and to a great crew. This is amazing!”

“It was great racing with Brady. He has a lot more seat time than I do. I saw him creep up to third and then second. I was watching for him. I was trying to stay smooth. That curb was crazy tonight. You could overdrive it in a heartbeat. I was watching the guys in front of me. It was slick. I just buckled down and held on.”

Seventh-starting Ryan Smith caught Glatfelter for third with two laps to go, and 23rd-starting Brian Montieth passed Glatfelter on the last lap for fourth. Sixth through tenth behind Glatfelter were Austin Hogue, 20th-starting Brent Marks, Lance Dewease, 22nd-starting Alan Krimes, and Gerard McIntyre, Jr.

A slowing track during time trials forced several top drivers to the rear of the feature field after coming out late for time trials.

Heats for the 410 sprinters were won by Wilt, Glatfelter, Moody, and Forsythe, with Steve Owings winning the B-Main. McIntyre set fast time over the 34-car field with a one lap time of 13.508 seconds (99.941 MPH).

Brian Montieth’s amazing run from 23rd to fourth put him in the PA Speedweek points lead after two shows with 259 points. The remainder of the top ten after night #2 are: 2. Alan Krimes (226), 3. Ryan Smith (216), 4. Brent Marks (205), 5. Greg Hodnett (199), 6. Danny Dietrich (196), 7. Lance Dewease (191), 8. Cory Haas (188), 9. Brady Bacon (176), 10. Kyle Moody (167).

After numerous second-place finishes, defending series champ Bob Stough of East Berlin scored his first career Lincoln win in the 15-lap Central PA Legends feature. Stough started third, led the first lap, yielded to fourth-starting Harlon Leppo on laps two and three, reclaimed the lead for good on lap four.

A race-long multi-car battle for the top spot ended with Jason Rochelle crossing second, with Lucas Montgomery, Bill Diehl, and Leppo rounding out the top five.

Heats for the 32 Central PA Legends were won by Diehl, Montgomery, and Leppo, with Travis McClelland winning the consolation.

Next Saturday, July 5th, with the 410 sprinters traveling for PA Speedweek activities, the 358 Sprints will headline the evening’s activities with their annual 358 SPRINT CAR CHAMPIONSHIP, a 25-lapper paying $1,500 to win. Also on the card are the Central PA Legends and PASS RaceSaver (305) Sprints. Gates open at 5:30 p.m., with racing action getting underway at 7:30 p.m.

SNEERINGER WINS FIRST OF THE YEAR IN TRAIL-WAY 358S;

CRONRATH BEST OF 600CC MICROS;

GOODWIN TAKES STREET STOCKS; WES BROWN CLASSIC CAR WINNER;

MATT CHRONISTER SCORES FOURTH WIN IN LIMITED STOCKS

Hanover, PA (06/27/14) – The honeymoon continues for Hanover’s Isaac Sneeringer.

Just a few weeks back from his marriage to Monica, Sneeringer claimed his first win of the year in the “358” sprint car feature at Trail-Way Speedway Friday night.

“It’s been a while, and great to get to victory lane,” said Sneeringer upon exiting his DCI Racing/Todd A. Gosnell Paving #19Z, “That 6R is a helluva racer. I was happy to stay in front.”

Sneeringer started third and assumed the front spot when race leader Dwight Leppo spun in turn two of lap 14. He led the rest of the way, with four-time winner and points leader Brad McClelland crossing second.

Third through fifth were Seth Kearchner, 12th starting and hard charger Jeff Rohrbaugh (driving the Shane Smith #00), and Randy Whisler.

It was the fifth appearance of the year for Sneeringer, who thanked father Dave (car owner) and his crew in victory lane.

Tyler Buchenauer was uninjured in a turn two flip on lap three.

Heats for the 13 “358” sprinters were won by Rohrbaugh and McClelland.

Bret Cronrath started on the pole and led every lap of the 20-lap 600cc micro-sprint feature.

The race was red-flagged for a five-car crash that resulted in a turn four flip by Travis Scott on the first lap. Scott was uninjured, but was unable to continue.

Dwayne Gutshall started third and chased Cronrath the entire way to finish second.

Third through fifth were seventh-starting Jim Young, 16th-starting Shawn Seifert, and 14th-starting David Holbrook, who took the points lead after the early departure of Brad Weber (who was involved in the first-lap crash and dropped from the field on lap six when he lost a wheel).

Qualifiers for the 17 micros were won by Scott and Gutshall.

Michael Goodwin claimed the win in a wild 20-lap street stock event that saw the Miner’s Machine cars of Dan Furman and Craig Wagaman battling with him for the top spot.

Wagaman came from the back twice in the event, moving up to third by lap five before suffering a flat tire on lap eight, going to the pits during his own caution, returning to advance to third by lap 14, and then sustaining another flat tire and hitting the turn two wall, ending his night on lap 16.

Furman started sixth and took the lead from polesitter David Johnson on lap two. He led four laps before Goodwin got by on lap six.

Furman settled for second, with Larry Landis, Johnson and Brian Blank, Jr. rounding out the top five. They were the only cars that finished the race.

Heats for the 12 street stocks were won by Furman and Todd Miller.

Brothers Wes and Roland Brown finished first and second in the 20-lap Classic Car feature.

Wes, from Manchester, MD, started sixth and took the lead from outside front row starter Matt Wallace on lap 10. Roland caught Wallace for the runner-up spot two laps later, with Wallace hanging on for third. Ron Grove and Steve Cantwell completed the top five.

Qualifiers for the 12 Classic Cars were claimed by Grove and Wallace.

Matt Chronister raced to his fourth win of the year in the 15-lap limited stock main event.

Chronister started ninth and became the fifth different leader of the race.

Robert Wellman led the first two laps from his outside front row starting spot before Kenny Startzman grabbed the lead. Wellman reclaimed the lead for laps five and six, then yielded to Shannon Weaver.

Weaver led through two cautions and two laps until Chronister took the lead for good on lap nine.

Eleventh-starting Cory Weishaar crossed second, followed by seventh-starting Ricky Weaver, Jr., tenth-starting Tom Senseney, and 12th-starting Chad Weaver, who recently returned from another tour in Afghanistan.

Heats for the 19 limited stocks were won by Matt Chronister and Mike Wolf.

Next Friday (7/4), it will be Camera & Autograph night as Trail-Way hosts the 358 Sprint Cars, Limited Stocks, Street Stocks, and Penn Mar Vintage Race Car Club for the Les Coghill Memorial. It will also be ARCH Night, with card-carrying members of the Auto Racing Club of Hagerstown receiving $2 off admission at the gate. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. and racing begins at 7:30 p.m.

Danny Dietrich Starts PA Speedweek With Close Williams Grove Victory

6/27/14

Mechanicsburg – Danny Dietrich pulled out the opening night Pennsylvania Speedweek victory at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, holding off the furious charges of Brian Montieth to pick up the $5,000 sprint car payday.

Rick Lafferty led the opening laps from the second starting spot over polesitter Dietrich, Alan Krimes, Doug Esh and Montieth.

The races first caution flag unfurled on the fourth lap for a spin by Adrian Shaffer.

The restart turned to a red flag for Australian Darren Mollenoyux who barrel rolled onto the backstretch from the second corner, however escaping injury.

Montieth surely hated to see the start get called back by the red given the fact that he zoomed from fourth to second on the restart before the red unfurled.

Lafferty went back to work leading when action resumed following the red and held sway over the field until lap 14 when Dietrich went outside his black No. 0 in the third and fourth corner to take the lead with 11 laps to go in the 25 lapper.

Two laps later Montieth followed the Gettysburg driver into second and began driving down his advantage.

As the front duo began battling for control so to was there a battle for third between Lafferty and Esh.

But just as Esh was poised to take the spot on the 18th tour, he slipped over the cushion in the second turn, nearly looping his car while falling from a challenging fourth back to eighth, where he would finish.

In the meantime, Montieth was all over leader Dietrich and just after the pair crossed the stripe to record lap 24, Montieth put on a monstrous dive and slide job in the first corner that netted him the lead for the blink of an eye before Dietrich burst back around him on the cushion as the pair shot onto the backchute.

Montieth settled in for another run in the final corners but Dietrich rode into the turns in the middle groove before sliding up to the cushion to race to the checkers.

But just as Dietrich caught the turn four rough to drive off, his car twitched on the edge of the cushion allowing Montieth to drop underneath for a drag race to the checkers.

In the end Dietrich held on for the victory by .190 seconds.

“Now that’s exciting,” Dietrich said before exiting his sprinter.

“I knew Brian was there. I could hear him. I knew I was gonna’ get slid in one and two,” he said.

“You just drive in wide and high,” Dietrich said of knowing when there is a slide job coming like the kind Montieth attempted on the final lap.

“And then while he’s sliding you are driving forward.”

Montieth was second followed by Krimes, Don Kreitz Jr. and Greg Hodnett.

Sixth through 10th went to Lafferty, Lucas Wolfe, Esh, Cory Haas and Brent Marks.

Heats for the 34-car field went to Lafferty, Krimes, Esh and Dietrich with Ryan Smith taking the consolation race.

Wolfe set fast time with a quick lap of 16.687 seconds.

The feature was delayed in starting an hour by a power outage on the frontstretch that occurred just as the field was firing off.

June 27, 2014 Feature Finish:

410 sprints, 25 laps: 1. Danny Dietrich, 2. Brian Montieth, 3. Alan Krimes, 4. Don Kreitz Jr., 5. Greg Hodnett. 6. Rick Lafferty, 7. Lucas Wolfe, 8. Doug Esh, 9. Cory Haas, 10. Brent Marks, 11.

ZEARFROSS THRILLS CROWD WITH FIRST SELINSGROVE SPRINT WIN OF 2014

RINE MAKES LATE-RACE PASS FOR THIRD LATE MODEL WIN; GARMAN SCORES FIRST CAREER PRO STOCK VICTORY; BISSINGER RETURNS TO WINNERS CIRCLE IN ROADRUNNERS

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – In an exciting race that at one point produced a three-wide battle for the lead, Brock Zearfoss of Jonestown secured the front spot on lap 11 in Saturday night's 25-lap 360 sprint car feature at Selinsgrove Speedway and drove to his first win of the season.

The win for Zearfoss, at the wheel of the Central Builders Supply No. 1-W, was his second career at the track and was worth $2,000.

Jeff Rine of Danville made a late-race pass for the lead in the 25-lap super late model feature for his third win of the year and 88th career at the track.

Derrick Garman of Loysville held off multiple challenges for the lead and scored his first career win at Selinsgrove Speedway in the 15-lap pro stock feature, while Keith Bissinger of Orangeville powered to his fourth win of the season in the 12-lap roadrunner race.

Selinsgrove Speedway will present the URC-sanctioned Middleswarth Potato Chips Firecracker 30 for 358-360 sprint cars paying $2,500 to win plus super late models and pro stocks at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, June 28.

Polesitter Bobby Parrow took the early in the sprint car feature and was chased by fourth-place starter Ryan Kissinger. Kissinger and second-place starter Michael Walter II dueled for the runner-up position for several laps while sixth-place starter Brock Zearfoss joined the battle at the front of the pack.

On the sixth circuit, a three-wide race for the lead between Parrow, Kissinger, and Zearfoss unfolded through turns one and two. On a lap seven restart, Kissinger made a pass underneath Parrow in turn one to take the lead. Another torrid battle for the lead developed between Kissinger and Zearfoss, while an exciting wheel-to-wheel race was taking place for the top five positions between eighth-place starter TJ Stutts, fifth-place starter Derek Locke,and 10th-place starter Mark Smith.

On the 11th lap, Zearfoss attempted a pass on the low side through turns one and two but had to wait until turn four to make the winning pass using the outside line by Kissinger. Zearfoss then opened up a lead only to have Stutts make a spectacular effort to catch him in the final laps.

At the finish, Zearfoss was victorious by just 1.5 seconds over Stutts, Smith, Locke, and seventh-place starter Pat Cannon.

Front-row starter Hayes Mattern led the first lap of the late model feature over polesitter Pancho Lawler. On the second circuit, fourth-place starter Jerry Bard moved into the second position and started to reel in Mattern. With five laps completed, Mattern was leading Bard, third-place starter Matt Cochran, Lawler, and sixth-place starter Donnie Schick.

On the ninth circuit, Bard was in striking distance and made a pass for the lead by Mattern using the outside lane in turn two. At the halfway point, Bard had a solid lead over Mattern, ninth-place starter Jeff Rine, Cochran, and fifth-place starter Tony Adams. With 10 laps to race, Rine advanced to second and quickly gained real estate on Bard.

Rine made the winning pass by Bard using the inside groove racing off turn four on lap 22. Once in front of the pack, Rine stretched his lead and posted a 2.2-second margin of victory over Bard, seventh-place starter Jim Yoder, Adams, and Schick.

Second-place starter Kurt Wray powered into the lead at the start of the pro stock feature. Wray was trailed by fourth-place starter AJ Stroup for the first two laps until both AJ and his teammate and polesitter Nate Stroup withdrew from the race. Sixth-place starte Derrick Garman took over the second position and set his sights on Wray while 10th-place starter Nathan Long advanced to third.

On the sixth circuit, Wray's car bobbled off the fourth turn and allowed Garman and eighth-place starter Brad Mitch to race by. The final laps produced another suspenseful finish as Mitch pulled alongside of Garman for the lead and win in turn three on the final lap only to have a caution flag break up the battle. For the one-lap chase to the checkered flag, Garman won by just .44 of a second over Mitch, Andrew Shoop, Jamin Chapmin, and Jake Buck.

In the roadrunner feature, second-place starter Curtis Lawton led the first lap, only to bobble in the second turn and lose the spot to fifth-place starter Keith Bissinger on the second circuit. Bissinger set the pace the rest of the event while being chased by third-place starter John Fowler Jr. At the finish, Bissinger was victorious by 2.2 seconds over Fowler, Bob Bussey, Brian Johnson, and Butch Shaffer.

Central PA 358 Point Series presented by Capitol Renegade

The Central PA 358 Point Series presented by Capitol Renegade kicked off the summer with all three tracks that host the 358 division in action this weekend. Friday night saw Robbie Kendall and Adrian Shaffer both score their 2nd wins of the season at Trail Way and Williams Grove Speedway's. Series point leader Kevin Nouse would score another top 3 finish at Williams Grove Speedway while Brad McClelland who has been keeping pace with Nouse for the Championship stormed through the field at Trail Way to score a runner Up finish. Nouse who scored a big win Sunday night at Susquehanna Speedway lost only 10 points this week to McClelland in the season long points chase. With the wins on Friday night both drivers moved back into the top 10 in points. Saturday night one of the young rising stars of Central PA sprint car racing Matt Campbell would pick up his 2nd win of the season in a thrilling feature at Lincoln Speedway. The win also helped Matt climb closer to the point leaders who have been in control of the series standings most of the season. The big gainer this week was 2009 Series Champion Jeff Rohrbaugh who since coming back after early season troubles has 2 wins (on the same weekend) and a string of top 5 finishes to help him climb to just outside the top 10 with a lot of racing yet to go in 2014. Jeff along with youngsters Chase Dietz (a 2 time winner in 2014), and Chandler Leiby are going to make it tough on the point leaders in the summer months.

The top 10 in points for the Central PA 358 Point Series presented by Capitol Renegade looks like this ...

1. Kevin Nouse -515 Pts. (5 Win) 2. Brad McClelland - 439 Pts. (4 Win) 3. Chase Dietz -355 Pts. (2 win) 4. Matt Campbell -337 Pts. (2 win) 5. Chandler Leiby -315 Pts. 6. Niki Young -274 Pts.

PRS 2014 – Racing through a new decade with a new attitude!

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

Fuller Wins Port Royal NDRL Northeast Late Model Cash, Cisney Wins One For Juniata County Fans In Sprints, Snook Gets Econos

6/21/14

Port Royal – Tim Fuller of Watertown, Ny., scored a rich payday at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night, besting a stellar 35-car NDRL Late Model field with a powerful move by Mason Zeigler for the lead and victory, worth $3,000.

In the 25-lap 410 sprint car feature, Dylan Cisney poured some local flavor into victory lane by holding off Doug Esh for the win as a hometown favorite.

And in the 355 econo late model division Todd Snook took his first checkers of the season.

Fuller started fifth in the 30-lap NDRL Northeast late model field as Mason Zeigler started on the pole.

Zeigler, a 21-year old gasser from Chalk Hill who set a new one-lap track record for late models earlier in the night, took control when the race got underway over fourth starter Jared Miley of South Park.

The only caution flag of the race unfurled with five laps in the book and the restart saw NDRL Northeast point leader Keith Barbara of South Park race into second but fail to challenge Zeigler for the lead.

Fuller began coming to life near the halfway point of the race, using the high groove to complete his advances, taking over third from Miley on the 14th tour.

He got by Barbara with 14 laps to go and set his sights on leader Zeigler who was blasting around the bottom of the track.

Zeigler then moved up to the top groove as Fuller pulled up on this back bumper but by that time Fuller was into his rhythm and there was only one more spot for him to conquer.

Fuller pulled the trigger on Zeigler with a low dive in the third corner before pulling a slide job to complete the pass after catching the cushion in the fourth turn with 11 laps left.

Once in front Fuller entered the backmarkers with seven laps to go and only once did Zeigler get close enough to think about mounting a challenge but after the lapped traffic separated Fuller was again able to jet away, taking his first career Port Royal victory by 1.658 seconds.

Zeigler finished second followed by Miley, Barbara and Dan Stone of Thompson.

Sixth through 10th went to Jamie Lathroum, Mechanicsville, Md.; Jason Cover, York Haven; Mike Lupfer, Shermansdale; Tim Wilson, McClure; and Max Blair, Centerville.

Heats went to Blair, Lathroum, Wilson and Zeigler with Jason Schmidt taking the B Main.

Zeigler set a new one lap track record in qualifications with a time of 18.072 seconds.

Perhaps picking up where Keith Kauffman’s retirement left off in exciting the hometown fans, hometown driver Dylan Cisney started on the pole of the 410 sprint main with Dave Ely chasing him in second when the race began.

This race too was only slowed by one caution flag, just shy of the halfway point with 12 laps completed.

Curt Stroup held third spot early before sixth starter Doug Esh took the position with three away.

The leaders entered the backmarkers on the eighth lap with Cisney circling the high side of the speedway in near flawless form.

At the restart on lap 12, eighth starter Rick Lafferty was sitting fourth with fifth starter Blane Heimbach still in fifth spot.

Cisney pulled away from Ely when action resumed as Esh labored for second, finally getting the spot with three laps to go after the race again entered lapped traffic with five laps remaining.

Heimbach followed Esh through for position with three laps to go and the pair rapidly began closing on Cisney.

As the leader crossed the stripe for the white flag, Esh was poised to make a strong move for control but a small slip on the cushion in the second turn cost him just enough momentum entering the third corner to prevent a pass for the win.

Cisney instead enthralled the local supporters from Juniata County when he took the win by .491 seconds with Esh a challenging second followed by Heimbach, Ely and ninth starter Mike Wagner.

Sixth through 10th went to Lafferty, Greg Hodnett, 13th starter Mike Erdley, Curt Stroup and fourth starter Chad Layton.

Heats went to Layton and Stroup.

Todd Snook took the lead during the mid stages of the 15-lap econo late model main to record his first win of the season at the track in the new division.

Tim Krape came to second but failed to challenge for the win.

Newcomer Curtis Heath finished third followed by Eric Irvin and Cody Butterbaugh.

Sixth through 10th went to Harold Ranck, Jared Fulkroad, Shaun Miller, Lucas Bryner and Danny Sollers.

Matt Campbell gets pole in revenge draw, wins second of the year in “358” sprints;

Montgomery, Leppo both pick up their fourth Lincoln wins in Central PA Legends

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 6/21/2014 – Some people go to Disney World after a major sports accomplishment. Robbie Kendall is going to Cancun.

A day before leaving to celebrate his sister’s 21st birthday, Kendall scored his first career win in Saturday night’s BAPS Auto Paints and Supply Night 25-lap feature at Lincoln Speedway.

“It’s about time!” exclaimed Kendall upon exiting his family-owned Falter Fundraising/Crenshaw’s Auto Repair #55K in victory lane, “I can’t believe I’m here! If it wouldn’t be for my parents and our sponsors, I wouldn’t be.”

Time trials and an eight-car inversion put Kendall on the pole. He led every lap, despite late-race pressure from sixth-starting Brian Montieth over the second half of the event.

“I saw the ‘21’ on board early, and I just tried to focus on hitting my marks,” said Kendall.

Montieth drove between both Brent Marks and then Cory Haas to take second on lap three. At the time, Kendall enjoyed a 2.22-second lead. Montieth closed to within a second with five laps to go, one lap before Gerard McIntyre, Jr. flipped in turn three of lap 21. Until the red, the race had gone non-stop, and leaders were driving through heavy lapped traffic from lap nine on.

McIntyre was uninjured, but his flip while racing the Rahmer brothers for fifth place was the only stoppage of the event.

Kendall restarted in front of one lapped car, and held off Montieth by .65 seconds at the end, with Haas, BAPS driver Brent Marks, and Freddie Rahmer completing the top five. Sixth through tenth were Brandon Rahmer, Lance Dewease, Jim Siegel, Aaron Ott, and Billy Dietrich.

It was actually Kendall’s second win in two nights after taking the checkered flag in Mike Parris’ “358” sprint car at Trail-Way Speedway on Friday night. He was the first driver to ever win in two “main” divisions on successive nights at the two tracks.

It was a long night for points leader Alan Krimes, who made the show through the consolation event, started 23rd, and finished 14th.

Heats for the 410 sprinters were won by Kendall, Marks, and Haas, with Matt Boland winning the consolation. Gerard McIntyre, Jr. set fast time over the 30-car field with a one lap time of 13.276 seconds (101.687 MPH).

A revenge draw for the top three finishers of each of the heats put Matt Campbell on the pole, and the Fawn Grove 16-year-old took advantage to score his second win of the year in the 20-lap “358” sprint car feature.

But it wasn’t easy. Campbell followed fellow front-row starter Chris Arnold for the first eight laps before taking the lead on lap nine. He was actually scored third behind four-starting Isaac Sneering on lap two before reclaiming the runner-up spot.

Although he was scored the leader every lap thereafter, Campbell and Arnold swapped the lead several times over the next four laps before 11th-starting Chandler Leiby grabbed the runner-up spot from Arnold with five laps to go.

A 20th-lap caution gave Campbell the space he needed for the one-lap shootout, with Leiby settling for second, and late-charging Jeff Rohrbaugh (who started ninth) crossing third. Chase Dietz and Arnold completed the top five.

Points leader Niki Young sustained a flat-tire in the 20th-lap caution, brought out for spins by Sneeringer and Hammaker. He finished 17th in the end.

Heats for the 20 “358” sprinters were won by Jeff Halligan, Sneeringer, and Dietz.

Lucas Montgomery and Harlon Leppo each scored their fourth career Lincoln wins in the Central PA Legends features.

Montgomery won his second Lincoln race in a row in the 15-lap make-up feature from May 24th. Montgomery started on the outside of the front row and held off polesitter Chris Spidle for the victory. Harlon Leppo came from 12th starting spot to cross third, with Bob Stough and Bill Diehl completing the top five.

In the regularly-scheduled feature, Leppo started on the pole and led every lap. In behind, four drivers battled for the runner-up spot throughout the race, with Stough closing to within a half-carlength of Leppo at the checkered flag, Diehl crossing third, and Montgomery and Jacob Feltch rounding out the top five.

Heats for the 36 Central PA Legends were won by Leppo, Diehl, Stough, and Joe Ehrsman, with Vern Houseman winning the consolation.

BAPS Auto Paints and Supply added $300 to the winner’s share, a $200 bonus to the second-place finisher, and an extra $100 to the third-place finisher in each of the sprint car features and an extra $150, $100, and $50 to the top three finishers in the Legends main.

Next Saturday, June 28th, Lincoln Speedway hosts 2014 Pennsylvania Speedweek activities with the 15TH ANNUAL KEVIN GOBRECHT MEMORIAL featuring the 410 Sprints in a $7,000-to-win event. Joining them will be the Central PA Legends. Time trials will get underway at 7:30 PM. Gates open at 5:30 PM.

KENDALL HOLDS OFF McCLELLAND FOR SECOND TRAIL-WAY WIN OF THE YEAR;

LUCAS MONTGOMERY TAKES CENTRAL PA LEGENDS FEATURE;

JEFF FOSTER LIMITED STOCK WINNER;

CRAIG WAGAMAN HOLDS OFF TEAMMATE FOR STREET STOCK WIN

Hanover, PA (06/20/14) – Robbie Kendall held off a charging Brad McClelland to score his second win of the year in the 25-lap “358” sprint car feature at Trail-Way Speedway Friday night.

Kendall took the lead from his outside front row starting spot and led every lap of the race, despite late-race pressure from four-time winner McClelland, who closed in when Kendall got boxed in behind lapped traffic in the closing stages.

“I got behind those lapped cars, and didn’t know where they were going,” said the Catonsville, MD driver upon exiting his Turning Stone Resort & Casino/Vermeer Mid-Atlantic/Wurtzer’s Garage #55 in victory lane, “I knew Brad was coming. I looked up at the scoreboard and saw he was second by lap six, and I thought here he comes.”

McClelland, who was scheduled to start 12th but started eighth when a few cars opted for the rear, was the event’s hard charger, passing Denny Gross for second on the sixth lap.

By that time, McClelland was quarter-lap behind the leader, and closed within a few carlengths by the checkered flag.

“We destroyed one last week,” said Kendall, “It was just a racing incident. But it’s great to come back from that.”

The official time in the non-stop race was 6 minutes, 11 seconds.

Isaac Sneeringer came from sixth starting spot to finish third, with Gross and Dwight Leppo completing the top five.

Heats for the 12 “358” sprinters were won by McClelland and Sneeringer.

Lucas Montgomery made a late-race pass to score his second Trail-Way win in a row in the 20-lap Central PA Legends feature.

Montgomery started eighth, was third by lap five, moved into second when race-long leader Scott Houdeshell dropped from the field while leading on lap ten, and drove under Bill Diehl to lead lap 19.

Diehl settled for a close second, with Bob Stough, Chris Transeau, and Travis McClelland rounding out the top five.

Heats for the 20 Legends were won by Stough and Chris Spidle.

Jeff Foster claimed his first career win in the 15-lap limited stock feature.

Foster started fifth and took the lead from Jason Chronister on lap six. From there, he led the rest of the way despite repeated challenges from second-place finisher Ricky Weaver, Jr.

Third through fifth were 12th-starting Tom Senseney, tenth-starting Kyle Rohrbaugh, and Jason Chronister.

Qualifiers for the 18 limited stocks were won by Shannon Weaver and Ricky Weaver.

Craig Wagaman came from sixth starting spot to win the 20-lap street stock feature.

He grabbed the lead from Jed Latshaw on the fifth lap, and, like the other winners Friday night, had to hold off 13th-starting Dan Furman over the final seven laps. His Miner’s Machine teammate was on his back bumper as they crossed the finish line, with Pat McClane, Chad Stine, and Latshaw third through fifth.

Heats for the 15 street stocks were won by Latshaw and McClane.

Tomorrow (6/21), Trail-Way Speedway will host the 3rd Annual Armin Hostetter Classic East Coast Flat Track Series for A.M.A. Motorcycle Short Track. Gates open at 3:00 p.m. with racing at 6:00 p.m.

Next Friday (6/27), Trail-Way will host the 358 Sprint Cars, Limited Stocks, 600cc Micro Sprints, Street Stocks, and Classic Cars. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. and racing begins at 7:30 p.m.

Montieth Breaks Through For Williams Grove 410 Sprint Win,

Adrian Shaffer takes 358 sprint championship

6/20/14

Mechanicsburg – Brian Montieth of Phoenixville finally broke through for this first 410 sprint win of the Williams Grove Speedway season on Friday night, taking the lead from Alan Krimes with 13 laps down in the 25-lap main event.

In the special 25-lap championship race for the 358 sprints, Adrian Shaffer drove to his second oval win of the season after an exciting four-car race for the lead was contested.

Montieth started fourth in the 410 sprint main and drove up to second on the first circuit as Krimes took control of the race.

Krimes entered traffic with eight away as Montieth kept drawing closer and closer and then when Krimes made a misstep while trying to negotiate traffic in the second corner, Montieth used the outside cushion to breeze by into the lead with 12 laps to go.

The races only caution flag then unfurled for a slowing Austin Hogue.

Montieth streaked away when action resumed and had a straightaway advantage over Krimes with seven laps to go.

He took the win by 2.546 seconds after losing a win two weeks ago by .01 at the finish line.

“We was either gonna’ win or take it out of the place tonight,” Montieth said in victory lane after claiming what was the 16th triumph of his Williams Grove career.

After starting eighth, Greg Hodnett took third before the halfway point but would fail to advance any further.

Fifth starter Lance Dewease challenged Hodnett for third on the restart but ended up fourth with ninth starter Doug Esh racing home in fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Gerard McIntyre Jr., Don Kreitz Jr., Ryan Smith, Cory Haas and Steve Buckwalter.

Heats went to McIntyre, Hodnett and Mark Smith.

Jordan Givler tried to lead the first lap of the championshp for the 358 sprints but fell off the pace as the field completed lap one.

That gave Chris Arnold the lead but he soon surrendered that on the third lap when on a restart he hit the outside backstretch wall, handing control over to Matt Campbell.

Campbell then led until the 14th circuit when Shaffer finally prevailed in what had developed as a four-car race for the win between Campbell, Jay Galloway, Brock Zearfoss and Shaffer.

After Shaffer got the lead he tried to pull away to the win but Zearfoss took second with four laps to go and threatened to make a race of it near the end.

Time ran out for Zearfoss however as Shaffer took his ninth career oval victory and second of the season.

Kevin Nouse rode home third followed by Campbell and Phil Walter.

Sixth through 10th went to Chandler Leiby, Kody Lehman, Rich Eichelberger, DJ Montgomery and Brie Hershey.

Heats went to Tyler Esh and Shaffer.

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

Erdley, Esh, Frye, Lupfer, Watkins, Parker And Powell Get Port Royal Wins.

Capacity crowd gives biggest payday of night worth over $5,600 to 50/50 winner!

Free Fan Appreciation Night Hugely Attended

6/14/14

Port Royal – Of all the big winners at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night including Mike Erdley and Doug Esh in 410 sprints and Coleby Frye and Mike Lupfer in late models, nobody took more money home from the track than the winner of the 50/50 from Middletown, Pennsylvania, who pocketed over $5,600 as his take.

Including the grandstands and infield areas, a near capacity crowd of thousands crowded into the speedway on Free Fan Appreciation Night, backing up traffic along access routes into the borough of Port Royal upon their arrival to watch seven exciting features that also saw Mark Watkins and Eric Parker split 305 sprint features and Bill Powell claim xtreme stocks.

Erdley ended up winning the make-up Fallen Heroes Championship 410 sprint feature worth $5,000 after the race restarted with nine laps recorded, picking up where it was rained out back on May 24.

But his victory was a hard fought and exciting one as the Elizabethville driver was passed early after the resumption of action by Rick Lafferty only to reclaim the spot with a crossover lane change in the fourth corner as the pair raced back to the stripe.

And then Erdley began opening up a comfortable advantage in the affair as eyes turned to Lucas Wolfe, who restarted fourth in the field but came to life as the race got to the halfway point.

Wolfe took second from Lafferty with seven laps to go in the 25-lapper and ran down Erdley’s lead by the final lap in order to raise the fans that could find a seat onto their feat for the checkers.

Wolfe raced just off Erdley’s rear bumper down the backchute on the final circuit before putting on a swoop deep in the third corner that netted him the lead.

But just as he had done early after the restart with Lafferty, as Wolfe slid up the track and took the lead, Erdley hit the binders and turned the car off of the cushion to drive back underneath Wolfe as the pair headed for the checkers in order to reclaim control and the victory by a scant .24 second margin.

Wolfe, Lafferty, Blane Heimbach and Davey Sammons rounded out the top five.

The May 3 410 sprint make up went to the line with Rodney Westhafer and Justin Barger on the front row and when the green flag dropped fourth starter Davey Sammons put on a run out of the second corner that saw him blast underneath Westhafer in the third turn only to loose control of the car and back it into the outside fence before turning over.

Westhafer took command when action resumed with sixth starter Curt Stroup muscling to the front early, taking second immediately ahead of Barger.

Meanwhile, seventh starter Esh went to the outside cushion and rocketed through the field and was up to fourth with five down in the race as fifth starter Mike Wagner honed in for the lead.

Wagner took control of the event on the seventh tour as Esh continued his assault on the pack, taking third with eight in the books and then second a lap later.

But Wagner proved to be tougher to handle for Esh, who dogged the Port Royal veteran for numerous laps as the race waged through the backmarkers.

With eight laps to go Esh finally caught Wagner and using his skillful prowess around the outside of the track he blasted in to the lead on the 18th tour to never look back enroute to the popular win worth $3,000.

Wagner settled for second followed by Lafferty, 16th starter Blane Heimbach and Stroup.

Frye led every lap of the 25-lap Fallen Heroes Championship for the super late models after starting second on the field.

He entered the back of the pack on the eighth lap and worked through traffic easily.

Andy Haus was running second when the first of two caution flags fell on the field with 17 laps down.

Another restart with just two laps to go regrouped the field but Frye was too stout for the field, taking the $2,000 victory for his second in a row in the Fallen Heroes race for the late models.

Haus rode home second with a fine run for Dave Zona placing him third followed by 10th starter Tim Wilson and Nick Dickson.

Matt Parks threatened to dominate the May 3 make up late model main, starting second in the field but point leader Mike Lupfer had other ideas.

Although Parks got away during the first half of the 20-lap race, Lupfer took second with five in the books and then slowly and steadily reeled him in to contest for the lead.

It took until there were just six laps left for the Shermansdale driver to get inside Parks in the second turn.

And once the bottom was cleared for Lupfer he rode the money lane down low to the victory, pulling away to the finish over Parks.

After starting 18th in the field, Tim Smith Jr. put on a clinic to finish a stout third followed by polesitter Mitch Hack and Tim Fedder.

Mark Watkins wired the field for the victory in the Fallen Heroes Championship for the 305 sprints, withstanding a pounding assault from Tyler Bear for the lead.

Bear took second with 11 laps to go and threw everything but the kitchen sink at Watkins, who proved to be unshakable to the finish.

Bear, Anthony Fiore, Jeff Miller Jr. and 22nd starter Mike Wagner II., completed the top five.

Eric Parker wired for his 305 feature win as well.

Tyler Bear started eighth in the main and drove into second with six laps left in the 20 lapper but soon withdrew from the event, letting Parker have it all his way to the finish.

Jeff Miller Jr. was second followed by Nathan Gramley, Ken Duke and 10th starter Mark Watkins.

The 15-lap xtreme stock feature closed the night with Bill Powell taking his second win of the season in the division but only after a volley of misfortunes altered the outcome of the race.

Early leader Deron Henry fell back on the sixth lap when Matt Wampler took over at the helm but then along came 11th starter Corey Kepner, who stormed to the front, taking the lead with only two laps to go.

But just after Kepner was scored the leader the red flag appeared for Henry, who flipped his car in the second turn.

And then under the stoppage, Kepner withdrew from the race, handing the lead and eventual win over to Powell with Wampler ending up second followed by Bob Bussey, Mike Goodwin and Tyler Amtower.

A power outage effecting the frontstretch and first turn lighting delayed the show after the first three features were completed, forcing an approximate one hour delay before the final four main events could be completed.

DIETRICH CLAIMS $5,000 WIN IN LINCOLN ALL-STAR CIRCUIT OF CHAMPIONS “A” MAIN;

Phil Walter claims first Lincoln victory in 22 years in “358” sprint car feature

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 6/14/2014 – Danny Dietrich is making it a habit of winning big shows at Lincoln Speedway.

The 2012 Lincoln track champ had a perfect night, setting fast time, winning the dash, and claiming this third win in the last four years in the annual All-Star Circuit of Champions show in the Pigeon Hills Saturday night, starting on the pole and leading every lap.

“It doesn’t get much better than this!” exclaimed Dietrich upon exiting his Gary Kauffman-owned Sandoe’s Fruit Market/Weikert’s Livestock #48 in victory lane, “We have a lot of sponsors here tonight. It’s great to do this for them. It’s gonna be one heck-of-a celebration in the pits.”

“We just get lucky,” said Dietrich of drawing the pole for the feature event, “We come here to win every night, and the last two weeks we’ve had tough luck. I think we’re back on track.”

“I don’t know what happened to Brian (Montieth),” said Dietrich, “He was little better than I was tonight on the cushion. I wasn’t bad, but it was his kind of race track.”

What happened to Montieth, who started fourth, was contact with a lapped car while running second on the frontstretch of lap 14, the only caution of the 30-lap event.

Former track champ Lance Dewease started on the front row and actually ran second every lap of the race except laps 11-13, when he gave way to Montieth. Dewease assumed second for the restart and ran there the rest of the way, holding off Tim Shaffer, Jac Haudenschild, and Jim Siegel, who finished third through fifth.

Siegel moved into the top five when All-Star points leader Dale Blaney dropped to the infield on lap 15.

Dietrich’s win was dominant. He had more than a two-second lead when the mid-race caution flag came out, three second lead by lap 19, and final margin of victory of 2.84 seconds over Dewease.

Sixth through tenth were 12th-starting Gerard McIntyre, Jr., Aaron Ott, Steve Owings, Greg Hodnett, and Brent Marks.

Cory Haas came from 24th-starting spot to finish 13th.

When asked about the lapped traffic that’s always a factor at Lincoln, Dietrich summed it up by saying “…I try to take my time without wasting time.”

Heats for the 410 sprinters were won by Ryan Smith, Ryan Bohlke, Freddie Rahmer, and Robbie Kendall, with McIntyre winning the B-Main. Danny Dietrich won the Dash and set fast time over the 40-car field with a one lap time of 13.310 seconds (101.427 MPH).

McClure’s Phil Walter started on the pole and led every lap of the 20-lap “358” sprint car feature, holding off the late challenges Jeff Rohrbaugh and Chase Dietz for his first Lincoln win in 22 years. Walter, who won a 410 sprint car feature at Lincoln in 1992, crossed .31 seconds in front of Rohrbaugh, who started ninth and caught 10th-starting Dietz for second with two laps to go.

Dietz settled for third, with Tyler Esh and 14th-starting Chandler Leiby completing the top five.

Sixth through tenth were polesitter Jeff Halligan, lady driver Brie Hershey, Niki Young, Troy Wagaman, Jr., and Matt Campbell.

Heats for the 28 358 sprinters were won by Campbell, Dietz, and Isaac Sneeringer, with Ashley Cappetta winning the consolation.

Next Saturday, June 21, it will be BAPS NIGHT with the 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints & Central PA Legends (Regular & 5/24 Make-up Feature). Time trials will get underway at 7:30 PM. Gates open at 5:30 PM.

OTT & WILSON SCORE FIRST SELINSGROVE WINS IN SPRINTS & LATE MODELS; BACHMAN WINS PRO STOCK THRILLER

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Aaron Ott of East Berlin chased down Davie Franek of Wantage, N.J., in the first half of Saturday night's 34th running of the Jack Gunn Memorial for 360 sprint cars before securing the lead and rocketing to his first career win at the historic Snyder County half-mile oval.

Ott earned $3,500 for his victory in the 30-lap United Racing Company-sanctioned tribute race to the late Hall of Fame promoter Jack Gunn at the wheel of the Don Ott Racing Engines No. 25. Ott, who also won the URC 360 sprint car race Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway, became the fourth different 360 sprint car feature winner this season at Selinsgrove.

"I wanted to win here for so long," said Ott in Victory Lane. "My hat's off to my crew and the racetrack. This was an absolutely awesome racetrack tonight on both the top and bottom. I'm just ecstatic to be here. I can't say enough about this weekend."

Derek Locke of Mechanicsburg was the night's Fast Tees Fast Qualifier over a stellar field of 358-360 sprint cars with a lap time of 17.287.

Tim Wilson of Port Royal also earned his first career win at the track in the 25-lap super late model feature. Wilson became the division's sixth different winner in seven races this season.

The suspenseful, wheel-to-wheel battle in the 15-lap pro stock feature went to Kyle Bachman of Selinsgrove. The win was Bachman's second of the season.

Selinsgrove Speedway will present the first-ever Patriot Sprint Tour-sanctioned event plus late models and pro stocks at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, June 14. The sprint cars will compete for $2,571 to win in the Joe Whitcomb Memorial. Gates will open at 5 p.m.

Polesitter Robbie Stillwaggon took the early lead in the sprint car feature over second-place starter Davie Franek. On the third circuit, however, Stillwaggon's car developed mechanical problems and he was forced to withdraw from the race. Franek inherited the lead and was chased by fourth-place starter Greg Hodnett.

A battle for third ensued between third-place starter TJ Stutts and sixth-place starter Aaron Ott. Ott eventually advanced to third and quickly reeled in Hodnett in a race for the second position. On lap 10, Ott drew a bead on the bottom of the racetrack through turns one and two and took over the second position.

At the halfway point in the 30-lap contest, Ott made the winning pass using the inside lane off turn two following a wheel-to-wheel battle with Franek. Once he got the lead, Ott started to stretch his lead in traffic as Stutts powered into second on lap 22.

With five laps remaining, Ott was navigating his way through heavy lapped traffic. At the finish, Ott scored an impressive 3.8-second margin of victory over Stutts, 15th-place starter Mark Smith, Hodnett, and 20th-place starter Pat Cannon.

Second-place starter Tim Wilson led the first lap of the late model feature. On the second circuit, second-place runner Harry Miller spun in turn and collected five other cars in the incident. When the race resumed, Wilson set the pace in front of sixth-place starter Donnie Schick while a race for third unfolded between eighth-place starter Jeff Rine and ninth-place starter Jim Yoder.

On a lap 11 restart, Bryan Bernheisel and Austin Berry made contact on the backstretch, resulting in an 11-car melee that brought out the red flag. There were no driver injuries reported. When the race restarted, Yoder's car developed a flat tire on lap 12.

In the second half of the race, Wilson streaked away from the field and posted a straightaway victory over Schick, Rine, last week's winner Dave Zona, and Bryan Bernheisel.

Fourth-place starter Nathan Long charged into the lead at the start of the pro stock feature. Long was pressured by polesitter Jake Buck and then fifth-place starter Kyle Bachman. Long and Bachman see-sawed for the lead several times and an all-out war on wheels unfolded at the front of the pack.

Bachman eventually secured the lead with an inside pass racing off turn four. In the final laps 11th-place starter Brad Mitch stormed into the second spot and put in a bid for the lead. On the final lap, no less than five cars were racing under a blanket to determine the winner of the suspenseful feature.

When the checkered flag waved, it was Bachman taking the win by the slimmest of margins over Mitch, 10th-place starter Andrew Shoop, Buck, and ninth-place starter AJ Stroup.

Bacon Sizzles For USAC Eastern Storm Port Royal Victory

Trent Brenneman subs and wins Port first in stock cars, Drevicki takes ARDC Midgets

6/7/14

Port Royal –Brady Bacon of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, took the $6,000 USAC Eastern Storm sprint car feature event at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night, putting on an exciting show for the fans for his first ever oval victory.

For Bacon, aboard the Hoffman Racing No. 69, the victory helped widen his advantage in the Eastern Storm series that concludes on Sunday night.

In the 15-lap econo late model feature event, super sub Trent Brenneman upset the field while filling in for regular driver Todd Snook to etch his name in the Port Royal history books where his grandfather Butch Renninger owns countless stock car wins and titles.

The 20-lap ARDC Midget feature went to Steve Drevicki in a flag to flag performance.

The start of the 30-lap USAC sprint car feature event got off to a rocky start when the yellow flag unfurled for a false start.

As the yellow fell over the field, seventh starter Tracy Hines of New Castle, Indiana, snap rolled in the second corner, turning the yellow to red.

Hines was uninjured but two other cars involved including Robert Ballou had to tag the rear of the field for the restart.

Second starter Jon Stanbrough of Avon, Indiana, took control of the main when action did get started with polesitter Kevin Thomas Jr. of Cullman, Alabama, following in second and third starter Bacon running in third.

During the early going Stanbrough and Thomas got away from Bacon and raced back and forth for control before Thomas finally seized the spot on the fourth tour.

But one lap later Bacon surged into second while touring around the inside groove and as leader Thomas entered the backmarkers on the 10th circuit, Bacon was knocking on the door for the lead.

It took a few attempts for Bacon to gain control as he pushed his racer underneath Stewart in the first and second turns repeatedly only to see Thomas regain the lead as he jetted off of the cushion onto the backstretch.

But finally with 12 laps to go Bacon was able to take the spot for good before beginning to get away from the field.

Meanwhile, having restarted at the rear of the field, Robert Ballou was stirring the fans with an impressive march into the front of the field.

And by the time that Bacon took the checkers with Thomas and Stanbrough following, Ballou was knocking on the door for third.

Last year’s Port Royal USAC winner, Dave Darland crossed the finish line in fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Chase Stockon, Justin Grant, Bryan Clauson, Shane Cockrum and Hunter Schuerenberg.

Heats for the 23 cars went to Hines, Cockrum and Ballou.

Fast time, worth $100 from Packers Concessions, was set by Justin Grant of Ione, California, with a lap of 19.247 seconds.

Brenneman started second in the 15-lap econo late model feature event but found third starter Jason Nace taking the lead at the start.

Brenneman stuck close to leader Nace during the first 10 laps before pulling the trigger for the lead with just five laps to go.

Once in command, Brenneman pulled away from the field as a four car race for second unfolded between Nace, Eric Irvin, Tim Krape and three time winner Andrew Yoder.

Racing through traffic, Yoder bulled his way into second with a pair of laps left but failed to close on Brenneman.

Irvin was third followed by Krape and Nace.

Twin heats for the 16 cars went to Yoder and Nace.

Drevicki started on the pole of the ARDC Midget main and led all 20 laps of the race.

A lone caution flag at the halfway point regrouped the field but no one could challenge Drevicki.

Instead attention turned to eighth starter Steve Buckwalter who moved into second with a pair of laps to go.

Tim Buckwalter, who took second with nine laps to go, ended up falling to third at the finish.

Brenden Bright ended fourth and Bruce Buckwalter Jr. rode home fifth.

Heats went to Steve Buckwalter and Drevicki.

GRASSO SCORES FIRST CAREER LINCOLN WIN IN ANNUAL GOHN MEMORIAL FOR 410 SPRINTS;

Dietz, Bittinger claim 358 sprint wins; Zimmerman first-time Lincoln winner in All-American Outlaws

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 6/7/2014 – “Is this for real?”

So asked J.J. Grasso after holding off Danny Dietrich and then points leader Alan Krimes to claim his first career Lincoln Speedway 410 sprint car feature win in the Annual Daryl Gohn/Glenn Gohn, Sr. Memorial Saturday night.

Time trials and four-car inversions for the qualifiers placed Grasso on the outside of the front row for the 25-lapper. Grasso followed polesitter Steve Owings for a lap before making what turned out to be the race-winning pass on lap two. Despite leading the rest of the way, Grasso had to withstand the mid-race challenges of fourth-starting Dietrich and then the late-race charge of sixth-starting Krimes.

Grasso stayed on the top side for entire race, despite a disappearing cushion in the top of the turns. He actually bounced off the wall in turns three and four late in the race.

“It didn’t seem like that bottom was there in one and two,” said Grasso, “When I caught lapped traffic, those guys were running pretty equal. But I kept getting higher and higher off of two, and I wasn’t sure if I should try to maybe diamond it off a little bit or what.”

“You could see there’s just nothing there, said the driver of the BK Trucking #37, “It was nerve-racking, and I was holding my breath for every lap of it. I can’t believe this!”

Grasso’s final margin of victory was 1.94 seconds, and his total winnings (counting Gohn family and sponsor contingency prizes) was $4,600.

Krimes held onto the Lincoln points lead with his second-place finish, followed by Dietrich (who finished with a damaged front wing), Cory Haas, and Owings. Sixth through tenth were 11th-starting Brian Montieth, 13th-starting Lance Dewease, Ryan Smith, Jim Siegel, and Gerard McIntyre, Jr.

Heats for the 410 sprinters were won by Danny Dietrich, Haas, Grasso, and Owings, with Brandon Rahmer winning the consolation. Jim Siegel sets fast time over the 32-car field with a one lap time of 13.623 seconds (99.097 MPH).

In the 358 sprint division, Chase Dietz started the night off by scoring his second career win in the make-up feature from May 24th. Mike Bittinger held off Jeff Rohrbaugh and C.J. Tracey to win the regularly-scheduled event.

In the make-up feature, Dietz started eighth and passed sixth-starting Bittinger for the lead on lap seven. Bittinger faded to sixth at the end, with ninth-starting Niki Young, 11th-starting Kevin Nouse, Doug Hammaker, and Chandler Leiby completing the top five.

In the regularly-scheduled event, Bittinger drove the Michael Markey #31 to his fourth career Lincoln win. Bittinger again started sixth, and grabbed the lead from C.J. Tracy with two laps to go. Tracy, who passed polesitter Chris Frank on for the lead on lap four, finally gave up second to Jeff Rohrbaugh on lap 19. Tracy, Nouse, and 15th-starting Young (who flipped in his heat), rounded out the top five.

Heats for the 26 358 sprinters were won by Bittinger, Nouse, and Tracy.

Kurt Zimmerman won his first-ever Lincoln feature in the 20-lap All-American Outlaw event, a race which saw five lead changes among three drivers.

Zimmerman, from Pasadena, MD, crossed 1.41 seconds in front of Dylan Keim, who was not one of the drivers to lead the race.

Randy Doty led the first three laps before Justin Cullum and Zimmerman swapped the lead twice, with Zimmerman taking the lead for good on lap 11. Cullum, Steve Jorda, and Doty completed the top five.

McCLELLAND MAKES IT FOUR OUT OF SEVEN IN TRAIL-WAY 358 SPRINTS;

Hanover, PA (06/06/14) –“I don’t know what to say about this race, but a win is a win.”

So said Brad McClelland after scoring his fourth win of the year in a bizarre 358 sprint car feature at Trail-Way Speedway Friday night.

“I nearly spun a few times myself,” said McClelland upon exiting his Littlestown Auto Care/Rucker Computer Solutions/Hoosier Tire #6R in victory lane, “Guess I was trying to make a race of it. I thought I’d better take it easy.”

McClelland drew the number-four pill for the start, but ended up on the front row after a first-lap crash which resulted in a flip by fifth-starting Robbie Kendall on the backstretch. Kendall made contact with a spinning Tyler Buchenauer exiting turn two, with Buchenauer sliding into the infield. One-time winner Kendall was uninjured.

After the red flag, McClelland started beside polesitter Seth Kearchner and took the lead at the drop of the green. He ran away from the field en route to a non-stop time of 6:07.31, crossing a quarter of-a-lap ahead of Kearchner, with hard charger Randy Whisler (who came from ninth starting spot), Isaac Sneeringer (who changed a flat tire during the first-lap red and came from the rear), and rookie Wyatt Hinkle rounding out the top five.

They were the only cars that finished the event, with several cars dropping to the infield during the non-stop race, and only the top four cars running on the lead lap at the checkered.

It was McClelland’s division-leading 37th Trail-Way sprint car win.

Heats for the 12 “358” sprint cars on hand were won by McClelland and Kendall.

Brian Marriott scored the win in the 20-lap Mason/Dixon 270cc micro-sprint feature.

Marriott started on the outside of the front row, but chased polesitter and leader Bill Laughman for the first three laps before Laughman stopped on the track during a fourth-lap caution.

Laughman restarted at the rear and came back through the field to finish fifth.

Marriott led the rest of the way, with Steven Cox, Cory Myers, and Jim Still crossing second through fourth.

Heats for the 19 micros were won by Still and Brent Bull, who was among the cars that brought out the fourth-lap caution and was not able to continue.

Dan Furman claimed his second win of the year and the 13th of his Trail-Way career in the 20-lap street stock feature.

Furman started sixth and took the lead from Jim Jacobs on lap three. Two laps later, third-starting Craig Wagaman took the lead, and he paced the field for the next six laps before losing front left tire pressure and turning the lead back over to Furman on lap 11. Wagaman eventually brought out the caution when his tire went flat and he didn’t finish.

Patrick McClane came from eighth starting spot to finish second, with Michael Goodwin, ninth-starting Matt Wampler, and Chad Stine completing the top five.

Heats for the 16 street stocks were won by Wagaman and Jacobs.

Kenny Startzman picked up his first career win in the 15-lap limited stock feature.

Startzman started third and took the lead from polesitter Rick Hopkins on lap three. He led the rest of the way, with a wild battle for the runner-up spot going to tenth-starting Ricky Weaver, Jr.

Third through fifth were 15th-starting Kyle Rohrbaugh, 12th-starting Matt Chronister, and Jeff Foster.

Qualifiers for the 17 limited stocks were won by Startzman and Robert Wellman.

Next Friday (6/13), Trail-Way will host the Precise Racing Products 358 Late Models, 358 Sprint Cars, 600cc Micro Sprints, and Limited Stocks. It is also “Camera and Autograph Night,” where the fans will have an opportunity to meet drivers and get autographs and take photos.

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

Kreitz Runs Down 7-second Montieth Lead For .010-second Williams Grove Win

Ott takes URC feature event

6/6/14

Mechanicsburg – Donnie Kreitz turned in a finish for the 410 sprint ages Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway, staging an eye-opening run for victory that saw him erase a more than seven-second lead by Brian Montieth to nip him by .010 seconds at the finish line.

Including bonus and lap monies, Kreitz pocketed well over $4,500 for the regular, 25-lap win, which was the 59th of his Williams Grove career.

Aaron Ott was the winner of the 25-lap URC sprint main, taking over $2,000 for his convincing victory.

Montieth started second and Kreitz seventh in the 410 sprint field and as could have been predicted Montieth took command at the start and went to work running down the rear of the field.

Cory Haas got by Justin Barger for second on the third lap as Kreitz ran sixth.

Montieth was into traffic already on the sixth lap with Kreitz now fifth and as Montieth streaked away by the halfway point, Kreitz was still only up to the fourth position.

However Kreitz continued his forward march and took third with 10 laps to go and then ran down Haas for second with six laps left.

But even by that time, Montieth was nearly still a half lap ahead and Kreitz couldn’t even see him but the Sinking Spring veteran just poured it on during the final two and a half miles as Montieth just beat the top groove into submission.

And that’s how Kreitz ran him down by the finish, with continual bite all the way around the speedway as Montieth scrubbed speed in the middle of the corners while running the cushion.

The finish was that close as the pair came down to the stripe for the final time with Kreitz just to Montieth’s inside at the flagstand that the track scoreboard was made blank until an official determination of who got to the finish first was made.

And after a check of the electronic scoring and timing it was concluded that Kreitz got the win by an amazing .010 seconds as the Montieth fans stood stunned.

“I thought I was passing him for third coming to the line,” Kreitz admitted while seemingly amazed at himself.

“I’m shocked. We’re just so happy to win. Just to get one. That’s too close.”

Montieth ended up second with last week’s winner, Steve Buckwalter in third followed by Haas and Justin Barger.

Sixth through 10th went to Ryan Smith, Greg Hodnett, Rick Lafferty, Lance Dewease and Doug Esh.

Heats for the 28 cars went to Buckwalter, Lafferty and Kreitz.

Glenndon Forsythe led the first three laps fo the URC main before fifth starter Ott got by for the lead.

Mark Smith was the next driver to advance substantially, moving into second on the 11th lap after beginning the race in ninth spot.

Smith had a few clear shots at Ott on restarts but failed to muster any challenges for the win.

A red flag for a six-car pileup on the frontstretch with seven laps to go marred the event but there were no injuries.

Ott was victorious over Smith, Robbie Stillwaggon, Howie Locke and Curt Michael.

Sixth through 10th went to Josh Weller, Glenndon Forsythe, Brock Zearfoss, Davie Franek and Kody Lehman.

Heats for the 34-car URC field went to Chad Trout, Randy West and Zearfoss with Michael taking the consolation.

RAIN FORCES POSTPONEMENT OF LINCOLN USAC EASTERN STORM FEATURE UNTIL 2015

URC 360-358 Super Series consolation and "A" Main to also be made up as part of the 2015 show

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 6/4/2014 – An early evening shower hit the speedway just as the USAC Sprinters were lining up for their 30-lap, $6,000-to-win feature at Lincoln Speedway Wednesday night. After waiting it out two hours, race promoters Bob Miller and Ray Herold and USAC Officials were forced to throw in the towel on the special mid-week show.

Due to contractual obligations with USAC and URC to pay the purse for make-up features to be run at Lincoln next year, the event was considered to be a complete show and rain checks will not be honored.

"Because 50% of the show was completed, we are required to pay the full and complete purses to both USAC and URC, said event co-coordinators Bob Miller and Ray Herold in a joint statement, "With USAC only coming east once per year, the only option is to reschedule the event in 2015. USAC will run a complete show plus the make-up feature. URC will again be part of the program and run two features as well in 2015. We greatly regret the decision."

"We started the show tonight ahead of the scheduled starting time, and moved the show along without delay," said Miller and Herold, "The rain began at 8:50 PM and continue to fall at this time. We apologize and like you, we wish we could have completed the show tonight."

Before the rain arrived, heats for the USAC sprinters were won by Hunter Schuerberg, CJ Leary, and Jon Stanbrough, with Daron Clayton winning the consolation. New wingless track records were set for one lap, 8-laps, and 12-laps.

Fast time in time trials over the 25-car field was set by Dave Darland in a new 1-lap track record time of 15.174-seconds (88.968 MPH). In all, the fastest nine cars broke the existing record.

Heats for the 32 URC 360/358 Sprinters were won by Davie Franek, Jason Clauss, and Greg Hodnett.

This Saturday, June 7th, Lincoln will host the Annual Daryl Gohn/Glenn Gohn, Sr. Memorial for the 410 sprint cars. They will be joined by the 358 sprint cars, which will also make up their feature event from May 24th, and the All-American Outlaws. Time trials for that show will begin at 7:30 p.m., with gates opening at 5:30 p.m.

RESCHEDULED URC GUNN MEMORIAL CHALLENGE FOR 358-360 SPRINT CARS THIS SATURDAY AT SELINSGROVE

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Selinsgrove Speedway will present the rescheduled 34th running of the Jack Gunn Memorial for sprint cars at 7 p.m. this Saturday, June 7, sanctioned by the United Racing Company (URC) and sponsored by PEPSI.

Inclement weather on May 10 forced racing officials to postpone the annual tribute race to the late Hall of Fame promoter until this Saturday. Joining the 358-360 sprint cars on the racing card will be the super late models and pro stocks. Track gates will open at 5 p.m.

For the ninth consecutive year, the Gunn Memorial will feature a 30-lap race between the traveling United Racing Company (URC) 360 sprint cars and the track's weekly A&A Auto Stores 358-360 sprint cars. The race will pay $3,500 to win and $225 to start out of a $15,000-plus purse. Time trials, heats, and a B-Main will be the format for setting the 24-car starting field for the Gunn Memorial.

The tribute race is run each year to honor the memory of the late race track promoter Jack Gunn, who operated Selinsgrove, Williams Grove, Penn National, and Hagerstown Speedways during his career and brought mid-state dirt track racing to national prominence in the 1970's. Gunn was inducted posthumously into the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame (Knoxville, Iowa) in 1990.

Over the years, some of the biggest names in sprint car racing have won the prestigious Jack Gunn Memorial at Selinsgrove Speedway. Lynn Paxton of Dillsburg; Steve Kinser of Bloomington, Ind.; Doug Wolfgang of Sioux Falls, S.D.; and most recently, as 358 sprint car drivers, TJ Stutts of Liverpool; Chad Layton of Harrisburg; Blane Heimbach of Selinsgrove; and Dave Calaman of Carlisle are a few of the past winners of the Gunn Memorial.

The Gunn Memorial became a challenge race between 358 and 360 sprint car drivers beginning in 2006, when Heimbach took the popular victory as well as in the 2008 and 2012 editions of the race. Dave Calaman of Carlisle (2007), Trevor Lewis of Upper Black Eddy (2009, 2010), and Shane Stewart of Indianapolis, Ind. (2011) have also won the Gunn Memorial as a challenge event. JJ Grasso of Pedricktown, N.J., is the defending winner of the race.

Entering this weekend's action, six races have produced three different winners in 358-360 sprint car competition at the track. Mark Smith of Sunbury leads the division with three feature wins, while TJ Stutts of Liverpool scored his second win of the season May 31. Davie Franek of Wantage, N.J., also won a race April 26.

In the late model division, six races have produced five different winners. Jeff Rine of Danville is the only repeat winner to date, while single wins have gone to Steve Campbell of Danville, Jim Yoder of Selinsgrove, Dan Stone of Thompson, and most recently Dave Zona of Montrose.

Selinsgrove Raceway Park will present a program of go karts and micro sprint cars at 7 p.m. Friday, June 6. Track gates will open at 5:30 p.m.

Street Stocks In The Spotlight Saturday At Williams Grove Speedway

Mechanicsburg, PA June 2, 2014

The Williams Grove Speedway Saturday Night Series returns to action this week featuring two 15-lap main events for the Aquafun Pools Street Stocks. Joining the Street Stocks will be the Blazer’s Body Shop Super Sportsman and Credit Connection Auto Sales 358 Late Models.

The Street Stock division does not have a repeat winner. Jeff Haag and Kevin Sigler claimed the first two shows. Last week Greg Diehl topped the 18-car field. Walt Lemmon, Kevin Sigler, Jeff Haag and Doug Hoffman trailed the winner. Haag won the Artwerks Hard Charger award.

The 358 Late Models are equally competitive with no repeat winners. Kyle Lee and Matt Nailor each won their first at the Grove in the opening two events. Last week veteran Jake Jones was in victory lane after defeating Alan Sagi, Gene Knaub, Bobby Beard and Chad Julius. Knaub won the Artwerks Hard Charger money. Nineteen cars were in the pits.

Scott Geesey captured his second Super Sportsman tour win. Geesey, the two previous races, was a victim of racing woes. His car rolled over in the second race and caught on fire a week later. Scott Geesey finished ahead of Rich Eichelberger, Scott Dellinger, Chad Criswell, and Russ Mitten. Geesey was the winner of the Sprint Aces Hard Charger award. Thirty-one cars signed in for the race.

This Saturday the racing begins at 6:30 PM. Adult admission remains at five dollars with children 12 and under free.

 

 

Central PA 358 Point Series presented by Capitol Renegade

The Central PA 358 Point Series presented by Capitol Renegade kicked into high gear this weekend with all 3 tracks hosting the division. Friday night at Trail Way Speedway Jeff Rohrbaugh would find victory lane for the first time in 2014 while at Williams Grove Speedway Brock Zearfoss would dominate the racing action in the John Westbrook 1w for his 1st win of the season. Saturday night at Lincoln Speedway Jeff Rohrbaugh would pull a career first and sweep the weekend by winning the 20 lap feature event at Lincoln Speedway. The CPA358PS leader Kevin Nouse continues to lead after another strong 4th place finish Friday night. He has pulled out to a 86 point over Brad McClelland heading into this weeks races but because of the postponement of the feature last weekend at Lincoln Speedway (which is being run on June 7th) the points from last weekends races have not been added in to the total. Brad won last weekend at Trail Way for his 3rd feature win of the season, so Nouse has his work cut out for him at Lincoln Saturday night to keep his point lead.

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

Hodnett, Yoder, Powell, Zimmerman Take Port Royal Mains To End May

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

5/31/14

Port Royal – Greg Hodnett of Thomasville wired the field for the 25-lap 410 sprint car feature at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night while the stock cars staged exciting racing in the 355 econo late model, xtreme stock and all american outlaw divisions.

Andrew Yoder of Middleburg overcame from the ninth starting spot to continue his strangle hold on the econo late model division, now having scored all three of the mains contested for the class to date.

In the xtreme stocks Bill Powell exchanged the lead with Bob Bussey over the final five laps to come out on top at the finish.

In the all american outlaws main Kurt Zimmerman came forward from the ninth spot to take the checkers.

Hodnett drew the pole for the start of the 410 sprint car feature and set sail on the field when the green flag unfurled.

He entered the backmarkers on the fifth circuit chased by Curt Stroup and Dave Ely.

Meanwhile, having started ninth in the field, Blane Heimbach was blistering around the bottom groove of the track to be sitting in third when the red flag came out with nine laps scored for a crash by Doug Esh and Logan Wagner.

The pair was battling for the fourth spot when they collided and flipped in the fourth turn, escaping injury.

Hodnett had four lapped cars as a buffer between himself and Stroup for the restart and when action resumed he picked up his previous pace at the front.

Mike Wagner got by Heimbach and Stroup in one outside swoop on the 11th tour but then began fading as Heimbach took third on lap 12 and then overtook Wagner for second with 12 laps to go.

By that time Hodnett had a half track lead on Heimbach but with the final 16 laps going non stop to the finish Heimbach had to settle for second at the end, some 4.492 seconds behind the winner after driving down the margin to a straightaway at the finish.

Wagner was third followed by 10th starter Rick Lafferty and Dave Ely.

Sixth through 10th went to Ryan Taylor, Mike Erdley, Nate Snyder, Steve Buckwalter and Chad Layton.

Heats for the 26-car field went to Dave Hahn, Ely and Wagner with Brock Zearfoss taking the consolation race.

Polesitter Tim Krape led the first seven laps of the 15-lap econo late model feature before succumbing to the pressure of Eric Irvin.

Irvin drove into the lead just before the caution flag came out with nine away.

Yoder was up to third for the restart and got by Krape at the new green before closing in on Irvin.

Then another caution bunched the field with four laps to go at which time Yoder first drove into control only to see Irvin battle back in the third corner to pull the field back to the stripe with three to go.

But then with two to go in the event Yoder took the lead again and this time he wouldn’t relinquish it.

Irvin ended up 1.156 seconds behind in second followed by Todd Snook, Krape and Bill Henney.

Sixth through 10th went to Devin Hart, Lloyd Hockenberry, Lucas Bryner, Troy Miller and Danny Sollers.

Twin heats went to Troy Miller and Snook. ‘

The xtreme stock main saw Bill Powell lead from the pole in the 15-lapper only to find the yellow flag unfurling with four laps down for a tangle that took out the second, third and fourth place cars.

That advanced Bob Bussey into second after starting seventh and Bussey hounded Powell for the balance of the race, taking the lead on the eighth tour only to then be hounded by Powell.

The all time win leader in the division, Powell pressured to regain the lead and slipped by with one lap to go to end up taking the hard fought victory.

Bussey was second followed by Darian Trego, Mike Goodwin and Tyler Amtower.

Polesitter Bryan Green led until the seventh lap of the 20-lap all american outlaws main when ninth starter Kurt Zimmerman of Pasadena, Md., took a lead he wouldn’t surrender to the finish although the front four cars raced together under a blanket all the way to the end.

Green held second to the end after losing the lead while Dylan Keim took third with Randy Doty fourth and Jim Chenoweth finishing in fifth.

Twin heats went to Zimmerman and Doty.

AUSTIN HOGUE SCORES FIRST CAREER 410 SPRINT CAR WIN; MONTIETH CLAIMS HILLY RIFE MEMORIAL; ROHRBAUGH COMPLETES FIRST CAREER TWO-WIN WEEKEND IN 358 SPRINTS;

Kevin Thomas 4-cylinder stock car winner

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 5/31/2014 – Rookie Austin Hogue ran a great race and got a late-race break to score his first career win in the Delco Designs Night 410 sprint car feature at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

“When it’s you day, it’s your day,” said Hogue upon exiting the family BAPS Auto Paints and Supply/Livingston Lawn Care/Zirkle’s Garage #52 in victory lane, “I’m sure Danny (Dietrich) was all over me the whole time. It basically got rubber-down and I should have just stuck with it, but I tried to get greedy and get by Billy (Dietrich) in the middle and I lost it off turn two. The Lord was looking after me today, because the yellow came out and I was back in front. I won’t do that again.”

The mistake Hogue was referring to was an attempt to drive around Billy Dietrich while Danny Dietrich was closing in. Dietrich, who started tenth, drove under both his brother and Hogue to take lead, only to have pass negated by a caution flag for third-place Aaron Ott, who spun at the entrance to turn three.

“I’m shaking, I can’t believe it! This is just amazing!” said Hogue, “We struggled here all year, but this is my favorite track. It’s a taken a while to get a hold of it with the 410. This was like a 358 track tonight, and it was nice to get on a track I’m used to.”

“It’s a whole ‘nother world with these 410 sprints,” continued Hogue, “Everybody is so close, and anytime you’re off, it makes it really tough to stay with the guys that have been doing this as long as I’ve been alive.”

Dietrich settled for second, with Tyler Ross (another Lincoln 410 rookie), Robbie Kendall, and Brian Montieth rounding out the top five. Sixth through tenth were Adam Wilt, Ryan Wilson, Gerard McIntyre, Jr., Ryan Bohlke, and Freddie Rahmer.

Wilson started on the pole and led the first 12 laps before sixth-starting Hogue took over. The race went non-stop until Ott’s spin on lap 24, setting up the two-lap dash to the checkered.

Heats for the 34 sprinters were won by Kendall, Hogue, McIntyre, and Freddie Rahmer, with Jim Siegel winning the consolation.

Brian Montieth shook off a personal and team dry spell in claiming the 30-lap, $5,000-to-win Hilly Rife Memorial make-up feature earlier in the evening. Montieth started fifth and grabbed the race lead from polesitter and race-long leader Ryan Bohlke in heavy lapped traffic on the 17th lap. He drove away to a three-second win over Steve Owings to score his 42nd career Lincoln win, but his first of the season in the Pigeon Hills.

Bohlke crossed third, followed by McIntyre and 13th-starting Danny Dietrich.

Jeff Rohrbaugh started on the pole and brought another Delco Designs car to victory lane after leading every lap to cap off a career-first two-win weekend in the 358 sprint car feature. The final margin of victory in Rohrbaugh’s tenth career Lincoln win was 1.25 seconds.

Doug Hammaker ran second to Rohrbaugh the entire race, with 11th-starting Niki Young, Chandler Leiby, and Chase Dietz completing the top five.

Heats for the 29 358 sprinters were won by Matt Campbell, Jordon Givler, and Young, with Ashley Cappetta winning the consolation.

Kevin Thomas of St. Thomas claimed his first career Lincoln win in his final year of racing in the 4-cylinder stock car feature. Thomas won the first heat and drew a zero pill for the inversion, placing him on the pole for the event.

He led every lap, crossing 2.5 seconds ahead of Frankie Gordon, with Chris Anderson, Gary Newell, and Jeremy Ott finishing third through fifth.

Heats for the 24 4-Cylinder Stocks were won by Thomas, Shane Sixeas, and Ott.

Lincoln swings back into action with a special mid-week show on Wednesday, June 4th, featuring the second stop on USAC’s annual Eastern Storm swing. The wingless sprint cars will be joined by the URC 360-358 Super Series, the first time the two oldest sprint car sanctioning bodies will ever appear on the same track on the same night. Pit gates open at 5:00 p.m., with general admission gates opening at 5:30 p.m. and USAC time trials getting underway at 7:30 p.m.

Then on Saturday, June 7th, Lincoln will host the Annual Daryl Gohn/Glenn Gohn, Sr. Memorial for the 410 sprint cars. They will be joined by the 358 sprint cars, which will also make up their feature event from May 24th, and the All-American Outlaws. Time trials for that show will begin at 7:30 p.m., with gates opening at 5:30 p.m.

FLYING WINGLESS THURSDAY NIGHT, JUNE 5 AT NEW EGYPT SPEEDWAY AMSOILS NON-WING USAC NATIONAL SPRINT TOUR TO MAKE ONLY NEW JERSEY APPEARANCE THURSDAY NIGHT, JUNE 5

USAC, rich in history in the state of New Jersey, has been absent in recent years, that is until 2010 when USAC returned to New Jersey after thirty-two years. It was June of 1978 when legendary Tom Bigelow won that event at the Flemington Fair Speedway. USAC made their first appearance at New Egypt in 2010, returned in 2011 and 2012 then missed in 2013. Special events promoter Bob Miller organized that historic return of USAC in 2010.

But have no fear, USAC is back in 2014. New Egypt Speedway will be “Flying Wingless” on Thursday night, June 5 when the AMSOIL USAC National Non-Wing Sprints team up with the ARDC Non-Wing Midgets in an open wheel double-header. Previous USAC winners at New Egypt Speedway include Levi Jones in 2010, Hunter Schuerenberg in 2011 and Bryan Clauson was the winner in 2012.

The nation’s best non-wing sprint car drivers will be in the mix. Drivers like Jarrett Andretti of Indianapolis, IN, Shane Cottle of Kokomo, IN, the “ Modern Day Cowboy” Daron Clayton of Sikeston, MO, Dave Darland, Lincoln, IN, Tracy Hines of New Castle, IN, Kevin Thomas, Jr. of Cullman, AL, Robert Ballou of Rocklin, CA, Nathan Moore of Tyler, TX, Chad Boespflug of Hanford, CA and Brady Bacon of Broken Arrow, OK are some of the expected entries. Look for ARDC defending champion Trevor Kobylarz of Birdsboro, PA to do double-duty and watch for some other locals to include Billy Pauch Jr, Mark Bitner of Trenton, NJ and Central PA driver Mark Smith.

ARDC driver roster will include Alex Bright, Bruce Buckwalter Jr., Brenden Bright, Steven Drevicki, Kyle Lick, PJ Gargiulo, defending champion Trevor Kobylarz, Ryan Greth, Nick Wean and Billy Pauch Jr to name a few.

The USAC Non-Wing sprints will compete in time trials, a series of qualifying events all leading up to a 30 lap feature. For the ARDC Midgets, they will compete in a heat races and a 25 lap feature.

MACH 1 CHASSIS presents. . . . . FIRST TIME EVER. . . . . USAC NON-WING SPRINTS & URC 360 SPRINTS TOGETHER AT LINCOLN SPEEDWAY ON WEDNESDAY NIGHT, JUNE 4 7:30 PM

On this very special night in the “pigeon hills”, the two oldest traveling sprint car organizations will come together for a spectacular double header racing program of non-wing and winged sprint car racing at the Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, PA on Wednesday night, June 4. This first in a lifetime event is presented by MACH 1 Chassis and will get underway at 7:30 PM.

After a two year absence, the Amsoil USAC Non-Wing Sprint Cars return to the famed Lincoln Speedway in what will be the second stop of their eighth annual Eastern Storm tour. In the last AMSOIL USAC Sprint Car event at Lincoln Speedway, Levi Jones, who retired from racing in June 2013, held off a late race charge by Bryan Clauson to claim the victory. Wednesday night, June 4 on the 3/8 mile dirt oval, Clauson, Brady Bacon, Dave Darland, Tracy Hines ,Jarrett Andretti, Mark Smith and a host of other non-wing hot shoes will do battle in a 30-lap main paying $6,000 to win.

The exciting two-division show also includes the Rislone URC Sprint Cars in a 360/358 Super Series contest. The stars of the URC traveling series will be joined by many of the top wheelmen from the 358 Sprint Car circuit in Central Pennsylvania for a 25-lap feature, paying $2,200 to win. Curt Michael, URC’s eight time champion is a previous feature winner in a 410 sprint at Lincoln, so he’s expected to be a top contender for the win along with Josh Weller, Robbie Stillwaggon, Davie Franek, Ed Aikin along with Mark Smith and his MACH 1 Chassis expected to do double duty. 358 drivers with interest in running the event include Kevin Nouse, Matt Campbell, Jay Galloway, Cody Fletcher, Doug Hammaker, Niki Young, Tyler Ross, Zach Eucalano, Ryan Wilson and Mark Strickler to name a few.

The USAC organization was founded in 1955 by Indianapolis Motor Speedway owner Tony Hulman after the (AAA) American Automobile Association withdrew from auto racing. The USAC history as an open-wheel sanctioning body continues today as drivers like Jeff Gordon, Tony Stewart, Kasey Kahne, Kyle Larson, Ricky Stenhouse Jr., and Cole Whitt honed their skills and captured championships while competing in various USAC series.

URC, now presenting their sixty-seventh season of auto racing, remains the nation’s oldest traveling sprint car organization. URC, sponsored by Rislone is a regional organization, competing mainly in the Northeast. They do travel as far south as the Carolina’s and have competed in Canada. URC did compete a few times at the Knoxville, IA Speedway. URC competes as a 360 sprint car organization and races with wings. Curt Michael of Ocean View, DE is an eight time URC Champion and a winner of forty-seven career victories. The top winning drivers in URC history include Glenn Fitzcharles (81), Dave Kelly (76), Kramer Williamson (67), Buck Buckley (60), Curt Michael and Greg Coverdale (47 wins).

The infield is open for watching the races by entering through the fourth turn tunnel. The slightly elevated asphalt pits have great lighting which allows the fans to watch all of the pit action as well.

NAPA AUTO PARTS THUNDER ON THE HILL CONTINUES WITH JESSE HOCKETT CLASSIC presented by WINDOW WORLD THE SHOW OF ALL SHOW’S. . . .TAKE OFF THE WINGS, STAND ON THE THROTTLE, HERE THEY COME. . .USAC NON-WING SPRINTS AT GRANDVIEW TUESDAY JUNE 3RD

If you have never seen a non-wing sprint car race, you don’t know what you’re missing.

So plan to be at the Grandview Speedway Tuesday night, June 3 when the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series continues with the Jesse Hockett Classic for the USAC non-wing sprint cars and ARDC non-wing midgets presented by Window World. Race time is 7:30 PM.

The nation’s best non-wing sprint car drivers from around the county will gather on the “hill” Tuesday night. Drivers like Jarrett Andretti of Indianapolis, IN, Shane Cottle of Kokomo, IN, the “ Modern Day Cowboy” Daron Clayton of Sikeston, MO, Dave Darland, Lincoln, IN, Tracy Hines of New Castle, IN, Kevin Thomas, Jr. of Cullman, AL, Robert Ballou of Rocklin, CA, Nathan Moore of Tyler, TX, Chad Boespflug of Hanford, CA and Brady Bacon of Broken Arrow, OK are some of the expected entries. Look for ARDC defending champion Trevor Kobylarz of Birdsboro, PA to make his initial non-wing sprint car outing at Grandview and some other locals to include Billy Pauch Jr and Central PA driver Mark Smith.

Non-wing sprint car racing is not for the “faint of heart”. This is as extreme as dirt track racing gets.

In many forms of racing, time trials can be a yawner, but not when the USAC cars take to Grandview Speedway. Some say, USAC time trials along are worth the price of admission. Well, have no fear, there is much more to the show then just time trials.

These non-wing sprint car drivers use the outside boiler-plate as a way to slow down. There is always wheel rubbing, countless slide-jobs and racing in a pack is just the norm. In the 2013 running of the Jesse Hockett Classic, Daron Clayton did it all to win the $6,000 first place prize. In a three car battle for the win, Clayton, Levi Jones and Bryan Clauson were on the inside berm, glazing the boiler-plate and offered a three car battle for the lead for the final fifteen laps. Daron Clayton may have failed trying to move the outside boiler-plate at Grandview, but he did win the prestigious event.

Gates will open at 5 PM and for advance ticket holders, you may enter the grandstands at 4:30 PM. Warm-ups will begin at 6:45 with time trials getting underway at 7:30 PM. USAC time trials, heat races and the 40 lap Jesse Hockett Classic are on the program along with the ARDC non-wing midgets, competing in a series of heat races all leading up to a 25 lap feature event. On May 25 at Grandview, ARDC put on the best show of the night, with Alex Bright taking the win in the non-stop 25 lap feature with Bright starting twenty-first. . . It was an awesome race!

The popular pre-race pit tours introduced at the May 25 Thunder on the Hill event will be offered on Tuesday night as well as the Inside/Out Promotion where fans may watch the warm-ups from inside turn four. What a treat with USAC on the hill.
