Central PA 358 Point Series presented by Capitol Renegade

This week the Central PA 358 Point Series presented by Capitol Renegade saw the series back in action with two scheduled races on tap at both Trail Way Speedway on Friday night and Lincoln Speedway Saturday. Friday night under the threat of rain Trail Way completed their race which saw the 2014 series and track champion Brad McClelland score his 3rd win of the season at the short track, and 4th overall in Central PA. McClelland would score a perfect night winning the feature with the winning pass coming out of turn for on lap 23, and also picking up his heat win to gain maximum points on the night. McClelland would win over Dwight Leppo, Isaac Sneeringer, Mike Bittinger and Seth Kearchner.

Saturday nights scheduled race would fall to mother nature so with his win on Friday night Brad has taken over the points lead from Doug Hammaker. Brad now has a 22 point lead over Hammaker who has held the series point lead since the third week of the season. With the series kicking into high gear with races at Williams Grove and Lincoln this coming weekend, and it being a double points race for the series, things will be getting very interesting.

With the rain out of Saturday night, the Central PA 358 Point Series was unable to present the 2015 Most Popular driver award to this years winner Ashley Cappetta. We will be talking to Lincoln Speedway this week to find a time so we can reschedule the presentation for the two time winner of this award.

This coming Friday night the series heads back to Williams Grove Speedway and the start of the Nouse Sign and Graphics Summer Series for the 358 division. The race will be a double point race for the series. Saturday will be a full points night as well for the series, so 1 driver has a shot of scoring 180 points if he or she can win both features and win both of their heat races. That could swing the points in many different directions after all the racing action is completed this coming Friday and Saturday night. The following weekend the Summer series will continue at Lincoln Speedway for round two which also carries double points, so the next two weekends will be massive for the drivers competing for the $3,000 top prize. These could make or break a race team.

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

1. Brad McClelland - 517 Pts. (4 win) 2. Doug Hammaker - 495 Pts.(3 win) 3. Isaac Sneeringer - 402 Pts. (3 win) 4. Matt Campbell - 397 Pts. (2 win) 5. Dwight Leppo - 332 Pts.( 1 win) 6. Jeff Halligan - 324 Pts. (3 win) 7. Cody Fletcher - 320 Pts. ( 1 win) 8. David Holbrook - 296 Pts.( 1 win) 9. Adrian Shaffer - 264 Pts. (2 win) 10. Kevin Nouse - 248 Pts.

Buckwalter Outlasts Smith And Hodnett For Port Royal Speedweek Win

Lupfer takes fourth late model main of year, Corey Kepner gets xtremes

7/5/15

Port Royal ? Perseverance paid off for Port Royal Speedway, fans and Steve Buckwalter at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night as the historic oval outlasted the rain to showcase the 25th annual Jakes Wayback Burgers/Trone Outdoor PA Speedweek series for sprint cars.

In the end, Buckwalter scored a $5,000 payday for the 30-lap speedweek feature win, outrunning Stevie Smith and Greg Hodnett for his third oval win of the season.

In the 22-lap super late model main, Shermansdale?s Mike Lupfer streaked to his fourth division win of the season after winning the first three shows of the year in the spring.

Corey Kepner proved victorious in the 15-lap xtreme stock main.

Buckwalter started on the pole of the speedweek main and after receiving an unexpected two inches of rain Friday night and during the day on Saturday, the oval was lightning fast.

The Royersford driver zoomed into control when action began with Danny Dietrich running in second, trying to hold of speedweek point leader Stevie Smith.

Smith muscled by Dietrich on the fourth lap and went to work on Buckwalter, who entered lapped traffic on the seventh tour.

And amid traffic, Buckwalter?s blistering pace saw him doing all he could to keep the car on four wheels as he ran above the heavy cushion trying to put cars and lap down and keep Smith at bay.

Sixth starter Greg Hodnett took third on the 10th tour and closed on Smith as both drivers closed on the leader.

For two laps Buckwalter had Smith directly on his tail as the pair crossed the start/finish line with Hodnett just a whisker behind as the trio darted through traffic before the dizzying pace slowed when sixth runner Lance Dewease blew a tire with 17 laps to go.

On open track, Buckwalter got away from Smith on the restart but again in traffic starting on lap 20, Smith was able to close in for the lead.

And indeed the pair was ready to mix it up for the win with just four laps to go when Jac Haudenschild coasted right past the first turn pit entrance to stop on the track, forcing a final yellow flag in the event.

The final two miles was all Buckwalter as the Royersford Rocket took the wicked win by a margin of 1.708 seconds over Smith with Hodnett third followed by Brent Marks and Danny Dietrich.

Sixth through 10th went to Aaron Ott, Mike Wagner, Lucas Wolfe, 22nd starter Kevin Nouse and 10th starter Dylan Cisney.

Heats for the 34-car field went to Dave Ely, Buckwalter, Dewease and Marks with the consolation going to Kyle Reinhardt.

Three of the four heats established new eight lap track records with fourth heat winner Marks finally setting the mark at 2:03.611.

Greg Hodnett set quick time in Packer?s Concessions time trials and earned $100 with a lap of 15.357 seconds.

Jason Schmidt led the first eight laps of the 22-lap super late model main before seventh starter Mike Lupfer powered to his inside in the second corner to take control and streak away for the win.

The race was slowed only once, with six laps to go but Lupfer proved unbeatable to the finish, taking the win by 3.607 seconds.

Andy Haus took second with five laps to go and finished behind Lupfer, followed by Schmidt, Hayes Mattern and Brett Schadel.

Sixth through 10th went to Trent Brenneman, Patrick Bryner, Rick Singleton, Mitch Hack and Tim Smith Jr.

Heats went to Lupfer, Haus and Schmidt.

Corey Kepner led all 15 laps of the xtreme stock main to record his first win of the season.

Jason Zook followed him the entire distance to the finish with Patrick McClane finishing third followed by Travis Horan and Matt Wampler.

Esh Holds Off Montieth And Zearfoss For Williams Grove Speedweek Mitch Smith Memorial

7/3/15

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Mechanicsburg ? Doug Esh of Lancaster held off Brian Montieth and Brock Zearfoss to win the prestigious Mitch Smith Memorial for sprint cars at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night as part of the 25th annual Pennsylvania Speedweek series.

The victory was Esh?s second in the big oval event, worth $10,000. It was also Esh?s first win for his current team, owned by Mark Coldren.

Esh would end up leading flag to flag in the 30-lap affair with Zearfoss dogging him from the start.

Montieth drove by Aaron Ott and into third on the third circuit but had considerable distance to make up before catching Esh and Zearfoss.

Zearfoss made his first stabs for the lead on the 10th lap when he ducked under Esh for the top spot in the first corner.

But Esh rolled the top back into control as the pair exited the second corner.

And all the while the pair was racing for the lead, Montieth was reeling them in.

At the halfway point, the front four cars of Esh, Zearfoss, Montieth and by this time Greg Hodnett were running under a blanket through traffic, all within a turn of taking control of the event.

Montieth muscled around Zearfoss for second with 12 laps to go and applied heavy pressure to Esh for the lead and win.

Having moved down to the bottom groove in the first and second turns after Zearfoss made his attempts down low on the 10th lap, Esh still maintained the top lane in the third turn and that?s where Montieth was able to get underneath and take the lead with nine laps to go.

But Esh was having none of surrendering the point and would end up allowing Montieth to lead only the 21st lap as he drove to Montieth?s outside in the first corner to draw back in front as the pair scrambled down the long backchute.

In the meantime, while watching all the action for the lead in front of him, Zearfoss switched lanes to the topside of the track and began making time on the lead cars.

He motored by Montieth for second with five laps to go and for a few laps closed back in on pacesetter Esh before again falling prey to Montieth at the finish.

Hodnett rode home fourth followed by Aaron Ott.

Sixth through 10th went to Stevie Smith, Alan Krimes, Danny Dietrich, Lucas Wolfe and Tim Glatfelter.

?Hell I never know if I have a ride,? Esh said in victory lane, ?But it?s all good.?

?I love Central Pa and all the fans and lets drink a beer!?

Heats for the 34-car field went to Esh, Hodnett, Montieth and Zearfoss with Mike Wagner taking the consolation race.

Stevie Smith set quick time with a lap of 16.499 seconds and finished the night with a commanding point lead in the 2015 speedweek standings.

Jasen Geesaman took the lead from Craig Morgan on lap 11 of the 15-lap street stock main to pick up his first win of the year in the Saturday Night Series division that was making a rare Friday night start.

Randy Zechman lead the first pair of laps before Chris Heller took over only to give way to Morgan on the seventh tour.

Geesaman and Morgan then waged a door to door battle for the last half of the race with Geesaman securing the lead and win despite pressure from Morgan to the finish.

Zechman finished third followed by Wayne Dutterer and Kory Sites.

Heats went to Morgan, Sites and Heller.

McCLELLAND SCORES 45TH CAREER WIN IN TRAIL-WAY 358’S;

HANOVER, PA (7/3/2015) –Brad McClelland drove around Dwight Leppo on the next-to-last lap to claim his division-leading 45th career win in the 358 sprint car feature at Trail-Way Speedway Friday night.

“I got the s**ts of finishing second,” said McClelland upon exiting his Littlestown Auto Care Center/Rucker Computer Solutions #6R in victory lane, “They weren’t going to beat me again tonight!”

McClelland scored the win after driving around Leppo’s #4 in turns three and four as the leaders came down to take the white flag.

The win came after three straight second-place finishes behind three first-time winners over the past three TW races.

“Last time Dwight beat me, he said I’d have to go around him to win. So that’s what I did,” said McClelland, who was also the event’s hard charger, “After that last caution, I sat up in the seat and pushed the wing forward. Steve Rucker builds our motors and the guys in the shop make all the difference.”

An eight-car inversion put McClelland seventh for the start. He entered top five on lap five, and stayed there until lap 14, when he caught Cody Fletcher. Two laps later, he passed Mike Bittinger for third, and he drove under Isaac Sneeringer to move up the second during a three-car battle for the lead.

The final caution came out on lap 21 for Fletcher, who spun in turn two and collected Jeff Halligan.

McClelland hounded Leppo in a thrilling wheel-to-wheel battle that lasted until the checkered, with McClelland crossing a scant .68 seconds ahead at the end.

Sneeringer settled for third, with Bittinger fourth and Seth Kearchner fifth.

Qualifiers for the 15 sprint cars were won by McClelland and Kearchner.

Hampstead, Maryland’s Michael Boer started third and led every lap of the 20-lap Mason-Dixon 270cc micro-sprint feature. He crossed 1.72 seconds ahead of polesitter Jim Still, wity Bill Laughman, Cory Myers, and Levi Peck rounding out the top five.

Heats for the 25 micros were won by Cory Myers, Laughman, and Steven Cox.

Dan Furman is Trail-Way’s all-time winningest street stock driver, but Friday night he had one literally fall into his lap, assumed the lead from fourth-place when two leaders got together during the feature and a third car was sent to the rear for roughriding and went to the pits.

It was on lap 12 of the 20-lap feature that leaders Aaron Beard and Matt Wampler got together in turns three and four, giving the lead to the 89 of Classic Car Joe Brown. But during the caution, Brown was penalized for rough riding, and went to the pits, handing the lead over to Furman.

But the race for the lead wasn’t over. Jim Jacobs wrestled the lead from Furman on lap 14 and led until lap 18, when Furman reclaimed the lead. Though he led the last three laps, his margin of victory was only .28 seconds at the finish. Third through fifth were Cory Weishaar, Dalton Myers, and Kelly Seal III.

Heats for the 14 street stocks were won by Furman and Michael Goodwin, who crashed while leading in the feature.

In an experimental move, Trail-Way promoters invited two Classic Cars to compete with the street stocks. With Brown in the lead before his penalty, the Classic Cars proved they can run competitively with the street stocks.

Matt Chronister came from 11th starting spot to win the 15-lap limited stock feature. Michael Kolodiej, Jr. started on the pole and led until Chronister got by on lap 8. Kolodiej faded to sixth at the end, with 12th-starting Kyle Rohrbaugh, Robert Nicklow, Kenny Startzman, and Jason Chronister completing the top five.

Heats for the 20 limited stocks were won by Jason Chronister and Kolodiej.

Brian Gagliardo dominated the 15-lap Pen-Mar Vintage Car Les Coghill Memorial, crossing a half-lap in front of runner-up Glenn Pobletts. Third through fifth were Randy Minich, Mark Rickrode, Jr., and Rick Pastor. Gagliardo’s non-stop 15-lap time shattered the previous record by nearly 15 seconds, with a time of 4 minutes, 39.69 seconds.

The lone qualifier for the nine vintage cars was also won by Gagliardo.

Next Friday, July 10th the Precise Racing Limited Late Models return to TW along with the Limited Stocks, Street Stocks and Central PA Legends. It will also be A.R.C.H. (Auto Racing Club of Hagerstown) Night at Trail-Way. All card-holding members will receive $2 off admission. Gates will open at 5:30 p.m., with heats beginning at 7:45 p.m.

SMITH CLAIMS 4TH WIN IN 5 PA SPEEDWEEK SHOWS THURSDAY NIGHT AT LINCOLN;

Zimmerman wins sixth straight at Lincoln in All-American Outlaws

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 7/2/2015 – Combined, car driver Stevie Smith and car owner Fred Rahmer have more than 200 career Lincoln wins. But has Stevie Smith ever had a better week?

“Definitely not!” responded Smith after pulling the Fred Rahmer #51s into victory lane for his fourth win in five races as part of the 25th Annual Pennsylvania Speedweek.

“You’re not telling me nothing I didn’t know before the race started,” said Smith when asked about the race-long challenges from Lincoln points leader Brian Montieth, “I knew Brian was going to be racing hard. This is his best kind of track. He can carry a lot of momentum and his car’s real nice. Before the race, I thought to myself, ‘Of course, you have 22 other cars out here in the field you gotta race with, but you’d better be ready for Montieth.’ And sure enough…if I didn’t see that black nose.”

An inversion of eight put Smith on the outside of the front row beside 2014 Lincoln Speedweek winner Kyle Moody for the start. Moody grabbed the lead on turn two of the start and led the first five laps, with Smith and Montieth close behind.

Smith snatched the lead from Moody in turns three and four of lap six, and led the rest of the way, despite pressure from five-time 2015 Lincoln winner Montieth through heavy lapped traffic over the final third of the race.

In fact, it was with ten laps to go that Montieth actually slid in front of Smith exiting turn two, only to have Smith reclaim the lead exiting turn four of lap 20.

“I made my car wider and we just kinda went in between our normal feature set-up and something a little freer because the track was a little wetter. It seemed to work,” added Smith, whose father Steve won the first Speedweek title in 1991, “I figure that Montieth was probably the fastest car, but we were fast enough to stay ahead of him. I figured he was gonna be close, but I didn’t like when I saw him out my right side there and was eating that top up. I thought ‘I’m going to make him go around me.’ I was prepared to cut across if I had to with the lapped car, but I just felt I had a lot better momentum staying the top”.

Montieth took one last shot at Smith as they passed under the white flag waving as the two entered turn one, but Smith held his line to cross .34-seconds in front for the $7,000 payday plus $300 bonus from race night sponsor BAPS Auto Paints and Supply.

Lucas Wolfe started 11th and came on strong over the final laps to pass Danny Dietrich with five laps to go to cross third, with Dietrich settling for fourth and Robbie Kendall fifth. Sixth through tenth were Moody, Adam Wilt, Greg Hodnett, Tim Wagaman, and Gerard McIntyre, Jr.

Jac Haudenschild, who sustained mechanical problems in time trials, came back through the B-Main to start 24th in the feature and finished 14th. BAPS driver Brent Marks started 18th and finished 11th.

Fast time in time trials over the 39-car field was set by Tim Wagaman with a one-lap time of 13.242-seconds (101.948 MPH).

Heats for the 410’s were won by Kendall, Montieth, Smith, and Moody, with the other BAPS driver Austin Hogue winning the B-Main.

Smith’s win padded his already impressive Speedweek points lead (824 points). Second through tenth after five nights of Speedweek competition were Danny Dietrich (731), Lucas Wolfe (664), Greg Hodnett (649), Alan Krimes (515), Brent Marks (479), Aaron Ott (457), Brian Montieth (434), Lance Dewease (353), and Cory Haas (319).

Pasadena, Maryland’s Kurt Zimmerman continued his Lincoln domination in the 20-lap All-American Outlaw feature, scoring his sixth win in-a-row in the Pigeon Hills. Zimmerman started on the outside of the front row and led all 20 laps, with polesitter Hunter Nester, 20th-starting Brad Shank, Dylan Keim, and Justin Cullum completing the top five.

All American Outlaw heats were won by Nester and Zimmerman.

Lincoln swings right back into action this weekend, Saturday, July 4th, with the 358 Sprints, PASS RaceSaver (305) Sprints, and 600 Xcel Modifieds. Gates open at 5:30 PM, with time trials set to get underway at 7:30 PM.

STEVIE SMITH IS THREE FOR FOUR BY CLAIMING HAGERSTOWN’S SPEEDWEEK TRIUMPH

HAGERSTOWN, MD – It was a matter of clean air and a late race restart that propelled Stevie Smith into victory lane at Hagerstown Speedway on Wednesday night for the 25th Annual PA Sprint Car Speedweek triumph. The $5,000 victory was his third in the four events held so far aboard the Fred Rahmer sprint and also his first Hagerstown win since May 2009.

Defending winner and fast timer Greg Hodnett started from the pole with a zero invert and after swapping the lead numerous times in the middle of the race with Lincoln’s winner Danny Dietrich, Smith used a lap 23 restart to build up a head of steam to grab second and continue on and come out of the fourth turn like a cannon ball to take command on the 25th lap.

Moon (Byers) told me the car was perfect so I thought, ‘You better get your ass in gear,’” Smith said. “We got some clean air and got by Danny, then got another gasp of clean air and once we could get out in all clean air, it was pretty much over. I never give up , I just got a good break there; it’s hard to explain, I got some clean air on the top wing and the thing just set down better and I got a run on Hodnett going in, I thought “You know what, we can win this thing.’”

Hodnett turned the fast lap of 15.631 seconds around the half mile and heats were inverted four positions with Hodnett finishing second and later pulling a zero invert for the feature which put Dietrich alongside with Cory Haas and Smith in row two.

On the first start, the red was displayed for an Anthony Fiore incident on the back stretch when he made contact with the inside fence.

On the second attempt, another red flag brought out an open red as Glendon Forsythe, Freddie Rahmer and Alan Krimes were involved when Krimes was contacted from the rear and Forsythe tumbled down the front stretch while Rahmer’s car launched over the inside fence into the pit area only a few stalls from where the team was parked.

The third time was a charm as Hodnett took off with Dietrich, Smith and Haas in tow. The action heated up when Hodnett wasn’t escaping Dietrich and they caught the rear of the field by the tenth lap.

Dietrich led the 12th lap with Hodnett on the high side coming back the next and Dietrich not giving up. The lead was swapped at least six times in four laps.

Hodnett led until the lap 23 yellow when earlier fourth place runner Sheldon Haudenschild had motor issue and stopped off turn two.

Following the restart, Smith went into action and charged past Dietrich and just hammered under Hodnett off the fourth turn and checked out to claim the win by 1.46 second.

“We just really had a good race car, “Smith said. “These guys worked on this thing all night .It’s a great feeling to be here at Hagerstown in victory lane. Our goal is to win the championship and sure going to try our best. I’ve been in this racing business and anything can happen. We’re just going to enjoy each night as it comes and do the very best we can.”

“I’m feeling bittersweet,” Rahmer said. “I wish my boy would have got a chance to race. By far, the best driver in central Pennsylvania is standing right there beside the race car. I was thinking the car didn’t look that good and he drove the hell out of it. We had to change the motor, fuel tanks, fuel pump. We didn’t even know if was going to start for the feature. Stevie just got lucky there on the restart and got the car going. “

Dietrich ended third over Lucas Wolfe and Aaron Ott. Haas lost two spots on the final restart to finish sixth with Mike Wagner, Lance Dewease, Krimes (from 19th and a restart on the rear) and Doug Esh (22nd) to complete the top ten.

Heat wins went to Davey Sammons, Wolfe, Haudenschild and Wagner while Brock Zearfoss was the consolation winner.

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY FIRECRACKER WEEKEND: 14th ANNUAL FIRECRACKER 30 FOR 358-360 SPRINT CARS SATURDAY; 25th ANNIVERSARY PA SPEEDWEEK FINALE FOR 410 SPRINT CARS SUNDAY!

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Selinsgrove Speedway will return to racing action at 7:30 p.m. this Saturday, July 4, with the 14th Annual Middleswarth Potato Chips Firecracker 30 for 358-360 sprint cars plus super late models, pro stocks, and roadrunners. Track gates will open at 5 p.m.

On Sunday, July 5, the speedway will present the Jan Opperman/Dick Bogar Memorial as part of the 25th Anniversary PA Speedweek Finale for 410 sprint cars plus super sportsman and 305 sprint cars at 7:30 p.m.

Saturday’s Firecracker 30-lap main event for the 358-360 sprint cars will pay $2,500 to win and $250 to start. Time trials, heats, and a B-main will be the format for qualifying for the sprint car special.

Past winners of the Firecracker race as a 40-lap contest include the late Jim Nace of Thompsontown (2002), Bob Beidleman of Walnutport (2003), Dave Calaman of Carlisle (2004), Nate Snyder of Halifax (2005), and Blane Heimbach of Selinsgrove (2006). In 2007, the race was abbreviated to 30 laps and was won by Calaman. Scott Flammer of West Milford, N.J.; (2008) Pat Cannon of Etters (2009); Snyder (2010); Logan Schuchart of Hanover (2011); Heimbach (2012); Jason Shultz of Carlisle (2013); and defending winner Davie Franek of Wantage, N.J., also took checkered flags in the race as a 30-lap event.

The super late models will compete in a 25-lap main event, while the pro stocks and roadrunners will race in 15-lap and 12-lap features, respectively.

PA SPEEDWEEK FINALE/OPPERMAN-BOGAR MEMORIAL:

Sunday night will feature the 410 sprint cars in the final race of the Jake’s Way Back Burgers/Trone Outdoor PA Speedweek Finale honoring the memory of the late driver-car owner duo of Jan Opperman and Dick Bogar. The 30-lap 410 sprint car feature will pay $5,000 to win and $400 to start

The super sportsman and 305 sprint cars will each compete in 20-lap main events to round out the open wheel tripleheader this Sunday.

Since 2005, the Opperman Memorial has been run in conjunction with the PA Speedweek Series for 410 sprint cars at Selinsgrove. The inaugural Opperman Memorial was won by Todd Hestor of Middleburg in 2002. Last year’s race went to Brent Myers of Myerstown.

Selinsgrove Speedway is where Opperman won the most races—19 in a sprint car—and where he clinched his only track championship in 1973. In 1974 and 1976 he qualified for the Indianapolis 500 and then returned to Pennsylvania to race sprint cars. He suffered a career-ending injury in a URC-sanctioned sprint car race in 1981 at the Jennerstown Speedway. Opperman died in 1997 at the age of 58.

Bogar is credited with recruiting Opperman to turn the wheel on what would be become one of the most famous sprint cars in the history of the sport – the Bogar No. 99. The Bogar family name has a long heritage with the historic Snyder County half-mile oval. It was the Bogar Lumber Company that supplied the lumber to build the track’s current covered grandstand. Bogar passed away in 2014 at the age of 86.

Greg Hodnett of Spring Grove won the Ray Tilley Classic for 410 sprint cars at the track earlier this season on May 24.

Selinsgrove Raceway Park will present the Firecracker Special for go karts at 7 p.m. this Friday, July 3. Track gates will open at 5:30 p.m.

DIETRICH SCORES THIRD CAREER PA SPEEDWEEK WIN IN LINCOLN MONDAY-NIGHTER; SPEEDWEEK RETURNS TO PIGEON HILLS FOR BAPS GOBRECHT MEMORIALTHURSDAY

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 6/29/2015 – Danny Dietrich took advantage of a little racing luck to start on the pole and lead every lap of round three of PA Speedweek on Monday night at Lincoln Speedway.

In doing so, Dietrich scored his third career PA Speedweek victory, third Lincoln win of the year, and moved alongside Stevie Smith with his 26th career win in the Pigeon Hills and claimed the $5,000 top prize. But he made it look easier than it was.

“I was glad for lapped traffic and that the last 29 laps went non-stop, said Dietrich upon exiting his Sandoe’s Fruit Market/Hickory Run Orchards/Weikert’s Livestock #48 in victory lane, “We weren’t that good. I don’t think anyone anticipated the track being like this. It got real dirty and you just couldn’t get off the bottom.”

Dietrich timed 11th quick in the 37-car field, but made it into the inversion draw when the second, third, and fourth fastest timers (Robbie Kendall, Freddie Rahmer, and Brandon Rahmer) failed to qualify in their heat. That, combined with Lucas Wolfe winning his own heat and drawing a “6” pill for the restart allowed Dietrich to start on the pole.

Dietrich took the lead at the outside and drove to a comfortable lead before he hit lapped traffic ten laps into to the feature. That’s when Brian Montieth and Alan Krimes joined the chase. Both Krimes and fourth-starting Stevie Smith got by Montieth while the leaders raced through lapped traffic, allowing Dietrich to open a two-second lead with 10 laps to go.

Once Dietrich disposed of pesky lapped traffic that held him up for ten laps, he drove away to a 2.72-second win over Krimes, with Smith crossing third, Montieth settling for fourth, and brother Billy Dietrich holding his own by starting fifth and finishing fifth.

“I ran out of brakes there and missed the bottom a couple of times,” said Dietrich of the closing challengers over the middle stages of the race, “I heard Brian get underneath me, and I had to shut the door. Then I saw Alan get to second, but had a crew member tell me I had a decent lead once I got past a couple of lapped cars. I’m just glad to be standing here…and I appreciate everyone coming out on a Monday night. How often do you get to see racing here on a Monday?”

Although the last 29 laps went non-stop, there were two early red flags. The first came out at the start when Adam Wilt, Jim Siegel, and Steve Buckwalter call got together in turn four at the starting line. Kyle Moody also rode the inside guardrail and went to the pits to repair brakes. Siegel was also able to continue, but Wilt and Buckwalter were done for the night.

Then on lap two, popular invader Brady Bacon got upside down in turns one and two. All drivers were uninjured.

Sixth through tenth in the “A Main” were Lucas Wolfe, Aaron Ott, Brent Marks, Greg Hodnett, and Freddie Rahmer.

Stevie Smith, who won the first two PA Speedweek shows at Williams Grove and Path Valley, left Lincoln with the Speedweek points lead (488), 41 points ahead of Dietrich. Third through fifth in Speedweek points after Night #3 were Wolfe (394), Hodnett (376), and Krimes (355).

`

Heats for the 410’s were won by Wolfe, Ott, Danny Dietrich, and Chase Dietz, with Freddie Rahmer winning the B-Main.

Fast time in time trials over the 37-car field was set by Lucas Wolfe with a one-lap time of 13.031-seconds (103.599 MPH).

Lincoln swings right back into PA Speedweek action on Thursday night, July 2nd, with the Round 5 of the scheduled 9-race series featuring the 16th Annual Kevin Gobrecht Memorial with $7,000-to-win, in conjunction with BAPS Family Night. The All American Outlaws round out the evening’s racing action. Gates open at 5:30 PM, with time trials set to get underway at 7:30 PM.

Then on Saturday night, July 4th, it will be special 3-division show of 358 Sprints, PASS RaceSaver (305) Sprints, and 600 Xcel Modifieds. Again, racing action gets underway at 7:30 PM, with gates opening at 5:30 PM.

Stevie Smith Slices-and-Dices to Second-Straight Speed Week Win Record crowd fills Path Valley Speedway for Fred Rahmer Promotions event

SPRING RUN, PA – June 28, 2015 – It was a party of one Sunday Night at Fred Rahmer Promotion’s ‘Party at the Path’ event -- at the Path Valley Speedway -- as Broken Arrow, Oklahoma’s Stevie Smith battled through heavy amounts of lapped traffic to claim his second-straight Pennsylvania Speed Week victory.

“I had a feeling that lapped cars were going to make or break my night here,” Smith stated in victory lane. “I had a really great race car and we were able to move well and make good decisions.”

Smith started on the front row of the 40 lap main event, alongside Perkasie, PA’s Ryan Taylor. Taylor darted into the lead through turn 1 on the initial start, but Smith shot by on the low side exiting Turn 2 and pulled a full straightaway lead in the first few circuits.

The action slowed on the third lap for the No. 33 of Curt Stroup.

Smith pulled away quickly on the restart while Taylor battled back-and-forth with Brady Bacon, exchanging the second position three times in just two laps, with Bacon and Greg Hodnett getting the best of Taylor.

By lap 8 Smith held a comfortable lead with Bacon and Hodnett setting chase.

As the lap 14 mark passed, all eyes were on Gettysburg, PA’s Danny Dietrich. After starting 11th on the field, Dietrich slid passed Lucas Wolfe to claim the fourth position and quickly closed on Hodnett, using the outside line to power passed the fast timer just two laps later.

Smith maintained a near half-track advantage just passed the half-way point, while Dietrich used the outside line to move around Bacon and into the second position.

While running in the fifth position, Hodnett spun on the 28th circuit bringing out the yellow and closing the gap between Smith and Dietrich. With lapped cars holding back Dietrich, Smith was able to quickly muscle a straightaway lead on the restart.

The final caution fell on lap 38 for Denver, PA’s Alan Krimes, setting up a 3 lap shootout for the checkered and the $5,000 top prize.

Smith powered away on the restart while Dietrich drove between lapped cars, hoping to offer a challenge but would have no such luck as Stevie Smith claimed his 8th career Speed Week win and his second win of 2015 Speed Week.

Dietrich fought his way to a well-earned runner-up position, with last year’s winner Brady Bacon in third, TJ Stutts in fourth and Lance Dewease rounding out the top 5.

Smith maintains his PA Speed Week point lead, with Danny Dietrich in second and Greg Hodnett in third. With sponsorship support from Wayback Burgers and associate sponsorship from Trone Outdoor Advertising a $25,000 point fund will be offered with $10,000 going to the series champion.

Greg Hodnett won $500 for setting fast time courtesy of Emory Transmissions. Ryan Taylor, Brent Marks, Stevie Smith, and Alan Krimes all collected $200 for their heat race victories. Aaron Ott won $200 as Graver’s Garage Hard Charger. The 410 B-Main was won by Kyle Moody.

Bradley Howard of Lewisberry, PA won the Lawrence Chevrolet Non-Qualifiers event, picking up $1,700 for his efforts.

26-year-old Tyler Walton of Mifflintown, PA picked up his second win of the weekend – after claiming Friday Night’s Path Valley Speedway event -- in the 600cc Micro Sprint division. Aaron Spar and Steve Whary led the 24 car field on the drag race into turn 1, with Spar holding the advantage. Walton charged into 3rd from the 7th starting position on the initial circuit. A lap 6 restart allowed Walton to slide under the 44 of Whary into the second position and overtake Spar, for the lead, at the mid-way point. A slew of late race cautions, and a red flag for Garret Burd’s wild ride slowed the field and closed the gap, but it was all Walton at the checkered flag.

“You have no idea how awesome it is to race in front of this many people,” an over elated Walton said of the Path Valley crowd. “We’ve gone 3 for 3 in [Fred Rahmer Promotions] races and I can’t tell you how cool that is.”

Aaron Spar came home in second, Mike Dicely in third, Heath Hehnly in fourth and AJ Blast in fifth.

Prior to the evening’s activities race fans, pit crew members and drivers partied at Hammond’s Grove, enjoying live music, games and give-a-ways. Over 400 hotdogs and 400 hamburgers were given out as part of the pre-race ‘Party at the Path’ all free of charge as a ‘Thank You’ from Fred Rahmer Promotions.

It was standing room only for fans, with Path Valley Speedway packed to the brim. Christopher Strongfellow of Lewistown, PA claimed the $1,700 50/50 jackpot.

Hoosier Racing Tires helped lucky fans present Lucas Wolfe, Brock Zearfoss, Lance Dewease, Danny Dietrich, Billy Dietrich and Greg Hodnett with brand new right rear tires – allowing the fans to ‘sponsor’ each driver for the night.

The next Fred Rahmer Promotions event is Wednesday, August 26 (raindate: Thursday, August 27) for ‘Legends at Lincoln’ featuring some of sprint car racing’s greatest drivers, both current and retired competing at Lincoln Speedway. The legends will compete in their own event in modern versions of the cars they once made famous.

PA Speedweek 27th Annual Mitch Smith Memorial At Williams Grove Friday

6/28/15

Mechanicsburg ?Williams Grove Speedway will host the biggest event of the 25th Pennsylvania Speedweek series this Friday, July 3 at 7:30 pm when it hosts the 27th annual Mitch Smith Memorial for sprint cars, paying a hefty $10,000 to win out of a purse worth over $30,000.

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 street stocks will also be on the July 3 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.

Stevie Smith is the defending Smith Memorial champion, having taken his third victory in the event last season.

Smith won the inaugural event in 1989 and again in 2012.

He also kicked off the 2015 speedweek series with a win this past Friday night at Williams Grove.

Friday?s event will again be part of the 2015 Hoosier Diamond Series at the oval.

The Williams Grove portion of the 50/50 on the night will be donated to the American Red Cross.

Adult general admission for the show is $18 with youth ages 13 ? 20 admitted for $10.

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

The Williams Grove Saturday Series featuring the super sportsman continues on Saturdays during the summer months with race time at 7 pm each week.

NAPA AUTO PARTS PRESENTS. . . . .

410 SPRINTS & 358 MODIFIEDS IN HUGE DOUBLE HEADER TUESDAY NIGHT, JUNE 30 AT GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY, GREG HODNETT LOOKS FOR FIVE THUNDER WINS IN A ROW

It was August of 1990 when the famed Black Bandit No. 19 sat in victory lane at the inaugural NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series event at the Grandview Speedway, Steve Smith Sr. would claim the victory. Now, twenty-five years later the younger Smith, Stevie Smith looks to pick up his first ever Grandview Speedway win, when the 410 Sprint Cars come to town with the NASCAR 358 Modifieds on Tuesday, June 30th as part of Pennsylvania Sprint Car Speed Week.

Kicking off the 2015 edition of Speed Week in fine fashion, Smith -- the hired gun of 13-time Speed Week Champion, Fred Rahmer – dominated the evening activities setting quick time and leading each of the 25 A-Main laps. In a victory lane interview, Rahmer was clear that he wanted to claim this year’s Pennsylvania Sprint Speed Week title. Stevie Smith took the win on Friday night over Greg Hodnett.

But at the Grandview Speedway high banks, stopping Hodnett isn’t going to be an easy task – even for the star-filled field expected to be on the Hill Tuesday night. Hodnett, has claimed eight total Thunder victories, including the past four 410 Sprint Car feature events at the Bechtelsville, PA oval – something no driver has done in all of Thunder on the Hill Racing Series history. Hodnett’s ‘drive for five’ is on everyone’s mind, and a Tuesday Night victory for Hodnett would see him tie Rahmer on the Thunder on the Hill All-Time Win list.

While all eyes are on Smith and Hodnett, the door sits wide open for someone to come in and steal the $5,000 top prize – and their first Thunder on the Hill win. That someone could be Gettysburg, PA’s Danny Dietrich – currently sitting third in the Speed Week Points – Dietrich finished 3rd in Grandview’s event last year. Other contenders include: Lucas Wolfe, who almost beat Hodnett last year; Brent Marks, who currently sits 5th in Speed Week points and finished 4th in the 2014 Grandview race; and Alan Krimes, who has a string of top-5 finishes in Grandview sprint car events. Krimes has been so close to winning to that first Thunder on the Hill victory, they can almost taste it. Other entries include Ryan Smith, Lance Dewease, JJ Grasso, Aaron Ott, Brady Bacon, Davey Sammons, Brian Carber, Freddie and Brandon Rahmer, Tim Glatfelter and Ryan Talor.

The 35 Lap 410 Sprint Car event pays $5,000 to win, $1,400 for fifth position, $1,000 for tenth position and $400 to start the feature event.

Things continue to heat up for the 358 NASCAR Modifieds – during the Traffic Jam event Oley, PA’s Duane Howard claimed the victory in dominant fashion with Jeff Strunk, Meme Desantis, Jared Umbenhauer and Doug Manmiller rounding out the top five finishers. It’s a battle for bragging rights and $3,000 when the mighty Modifieds take to the track in 30 laps of three-wide, wheel-banging, boiler plate bouncing action. The 358 Modifieds portion of this show is open to all competitors with heat race qualifying, a consolation and a 30 lap feature. T

Quaker Steak & Lube has upped the ante with a $50 bonus to sprint car heat race event winners, with the stipulation that they pre-register and $125 to all non-qualified 410 Sprint Cars.

Bonus awards for the 410 Sprint Cars include: $100 Quick Time Bonus and an additional $100 if the track record is broken. The current track record is held by Jeff Shepard who clocked a time of 11.433 in May of 2008.

For additional information or to pre-enter, please call 443-513-4456. Drivers should provide their name, car number, hometown and phone number.

Previous Grandview Speedway PA Speed Week Feature Winners include: Greg Hodnett (2014, 2012, 2003), Tyler Walker (2011, 2010), Chad Kemenah (2009), Fred Rahmer (2008, 2005, 2004, 2002, 1997), Todd Shaffer ( 2007), Billy Pauch (2001), Lance Dewease (1999, 1998)

HALLIGAN HOLDS OFF McCLELLAND FOR FIRST CAREER TRAIL-WAY SPRINT WIN

HANOVER, PA (6/26/2015) – For the third straight week, Trail-Way Speedway saw a first-time winner in the 25-lap “358” sprint car feature Friday night.

Ephrata’s Jeff Halligan started on the pole and led every lap of the main event, but worked hard over the final seven laps to hold off hard-charger Brad McClelland. Trail-Way’s all-time winner, who started 17th after losing his steering in his qualifying event, drove under Seth Kearchner for the runner-up spot on lap 18.

“I saw Brad get to second and that’s when I started counting laps,” said the happy winner after climbing from the Halligan’s Auto Repair #45H in victory lane, “He makes passing cars look easy.”

“This is the toughest place to race,” added Halligan, who crossed just 25-hundreths of-a-second in front of McClelland, “But it teaches you how to race.”

Though he already has two Saturday night wins at Lincoln Speedway in 2015, this was Halligan’s first-ever victory at Trail-Way, and it followed first-time wins by David Holbrook and Cody Fletcher in the past two races.

Third through fifth were Kearchner, Dwight Leppo, and Mike Bittinger.

Qualifiers for the 18 sprint cars were won by Hallligan, Kearchner, and Leppo.

Mike Rutherford claimed the 20-lap Mason-Dixon 270cc micro-sprint feature event. He started third, chased polesitter Joe Long, Jr. for 14 laps, and then caught Long to grab the race lead following a 14th lap restart. It was Rutherford’s second win of the year and the ninth of his Trail-Way career.

Second through fifth were Nik Gower (who came from the 19th and final starting spot), Cory Myers, Bill Laughman, and 12th-starting Steve Cox.

Heats for the micros were won by Mike Boer and Rutherford.

Dan Furman raced to his 20th career Trail-Way win in the 20-lap street stock feature. Furman started fourth and raced back and forth with Mike Goodwin for the lead over the middle stages of the race. Furman was actually scored the leader of lap six, but Goodwin reclaimed the lead until Furman got it for good on lap 18.

Goodwin settled for second .75 seconds behind, with Cory Weishaar, Travis Leh, and Kyle Emig completing the top five.

Heats for the 13 street stocks were won by Jed Latchaw and Craig Wagaman.

All-time winner Kyle Rohrbaugh scored his 29th career win in the 15-lap limited stock feature. Rohrbaugh started 11th and methodically worked his way through the field to take the lead from Michael Kolodiej, Jr. on lap six. Kolodiej dropped from the field three laps later.

Despite leading the rest of the way, Rohrbaugh received pressure from seventh-starting Sarah Redmond over the final laps, and he crossed 1.16 seconds in front at the end. Third through fifth were Jeff Foster, Shane Miller, and Kenny Startzman.

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

Trail-Way swings back into action Friday, July 3rd, with the 358 Sprints, Limited Stocks, Street Stocks, Mason Dixon 270cc Micro Sprints and the Vintage Cars. Gates open at 5:30 p.m., with heats beginning at 7:45 p.m.

Stevie Smith Kickstarts PA Speedweek With Williams Grove Victory

Gargiulo takes ARDCs

6/26/15

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Mechanicsburg ? Stevie Smith kicked off the 25th annual Jakes Wayback Burgers/Trone Outdoor PA Speedweek series for 410 sprint cars at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, taking a $5,000 flag to flag victory over Greg Hodnett whom he held at bay for the entire 25-lap distance.

In the 20-lap ARDC Midget feature, PJ Gargiulo took his first victory of the season with the club.

Smith started on the pole of the sprint car main and took off ahead of Hodnett and Danny Dietrich.

Three yellow flags and a red flag hampered Smith?s winning pace during the event, the first occurring on the third lap for a stopped Mark Smith.

Four laps later a stopped Cory Haas again regrouped the field with seventh starter Brian Montieth turning heads after blasting into third on the previous restart.

The field ran the next 13 laps non-stop with Montieth challenging Hodnett early for second and then Hodnett closing on Smith for the lead during the mid stages.

But as the race wore on, Smith got away from Hodnett and was out of reach when Montieth stopped in the second corner with five laps to go.

Hodnett was unable to challenge when action resumed however only two more laps were recorded when the red flag appeared for a two car connection on the frontchute involving Brock Zearfoss and Lance Dewease.

Stevie Smith was home free on the restart, clearly powering away from Hodnett during the final three laps for his second victory of the season at Williams Grove Speedway.

?They (the crew) had the car really good,? Smith said of his Fred Rahmer-owned mount.

?It needs to be driven hard. The harder I raced it, the better it felt.?

Danny Dietrich was third followed by Lucas Wolfe and 14th starter Brent Marks.

Sixth through 10th went to Alan Krimes, Aaron Ott, Ryan Taylor, Steve Buckwalter and Montieth, who tagged to the rear of the field after replacing a tire.

Heats for the 33-car field went to Montieth, Hodnett, Wolfe and TJ Stutts with Dewease taking the consolation race.

Stevie Smith set quick time with a lap of 16.506 seconds.

With the speedweek opener in the books, unofficial speedweek series points show Stevie Smith the leader with 181 markers over Hodnett, 155; Dietrich, 140; Wolfe, 136: and Marks, 124.

Gargiulo took the lead in the ARDC Midget main from Brett Wanner on the seventh tour of the 20-lapper to record the victory.

With eight laps to go, seventh starter Tim Buckwalter was poised to challenge Gargiulo for the lead when he slipped up over the cushion in the third corner before losing control and flipping violently into the fourth turn.

Also involved were the third and fourth place cars of Ryan Greth and Wanner.

The final eight laps were all Gargiulo to the finish with Brett Arndt, Steve Drevicki, Nick Wean and Jim Radney completing the top five.

Heats went to Tim Buckwalter and Wean.

FREE PRE-RACE ‘PARTY AT THE PATH’ HIGHLIGHTS FRED RAHMER PROMOTIONS 410 SPRINT SPEED WEEK EVENT ON SUNDAY, JUNE 28

SPRING RUN, Pa. (June 21, 2015) --Just a week remains until Fred Rahmer Promotions presents a full day of partying at ‘The Path’ with an all-day pre-race picnic at the Hammond’s Grove – featuring live music, food, games and give-a-ways -- followed by a full night of intense racing action featuring the 410 sprint cars and the 600cc winged micro sprints at the Path Valley Speedway Park, as part of Pennsylvania Sprint Speed Week. This all takes place on Sunday, June 28 with the party starting at noon and hot laps starting at 6:00 PM and is FREE with the purchase of a race ticket or a pit pass.

The pre-race spectacular will kick-off at noon at local camping spot Hammond’s Grove, 19898 Hammond Road, Spring Run, PA – on Route 75 just up the road from the speedway. The pre-race party is included FREE of charge as part of your $20 general admission armband or your pit pass armband. Race fans can purchase event tickets at the Path Valley Speedway Park, starting at 11:30 AM – where shuttles will transport you to the party or race armbands can be purchased at Hammond’s Grove picnic area.

All of these festivities lead to the fastest cars on dirt, the 410 Sprint Cars, at the Path Valley ¼ mile bullring. The area’s top competitors will participate in a 40 lap, $5,000-to-win main event. Defending champion, Broken Arrow, Oklahoma’s Brady Bacon will look to defend his 2014 win at the Path, while chasing the $10,000 Pennsylvania Sprint Car Speed Week Championship – with sponsorship support from the infamous Beer Hill Gang.

Looking to thwart Bacon’s efforts are Pennsylvania mainstays: Greg Hodnett, Brian Montieth, Lance Dewease, Lucas Wolfe, Danny Dietrich, Cory Haas and Brent Marks. And invading All-Star Sprint Series competitor Red Lion, PA’s Cody Darrah.

With all Fred Rahmer Promotions events, the bonus money is plentiful. A $500 bonus is offered to the winner of each 410 Sprint Car qualifying heat event – as long as that winner comes from outside the front row -- if a driver from the front row picks up the victory they will receive $200 for their win, and the additional $300 will be added into the Lawrence Chevrolet Non-Qualifiers event jackpot.

Lawrence Chevrolet of Mechanicsburg, PA presents the Non-Qualifiers event with a guaranteed winner’s share of $500 – but that jackpot could reach as high as $1,700 depending on the results of the qualifying heat events. At the 2014 Speedweek event, Chandler Leiby earned $1,100 for his non-qualifiers win and at the April 26 event TJ Stutts earned $1,400 for his non-qualifiers win.

Hoosier Racing Tires gets involved with a 410 Sprint Car contingency bonus that sees six right rear Hoosier Tires being distributed to drivers based on a fan vote, as well as four right rear Hoosier tires that will be distributed to 600cc Winged Micro Sprint drivers based on a random drawing.

The winged 600cc Micro Sprints will take part in a 25-lap, $750 to win A-Main event. At the last Fred Rahmer Promotions event 47 600cc Micro Sprints attempted to qualify. In one of the more unique promotions, two 600cc Micro Sprint drivers – the winner of the Fred Rahmer Promotions point series and one random driver that has competed in all three of the Rahmer Path Valley events -- will be given to the opportunity to win a test session aboard one of the Fred Rahmer-owned 410 Sprint Cars. Tyler Walton currently leads Kameron Morral and Tim Buckwalter in the series championship.

The June 28th at the Path Valley Speedway marks the third event of the Pennsylvania Sprint Speedweek schedule – which offers nine races in ten days, with $250,000 in race payouts. With sponsorship support from Wayback Burgers and associate sponsorship from Trone Outdoor Advertising a $25,000 point fund will be offered with $10,000 going to the series champion. Celebrating its 25 season, Pennsylvania Sprint Speedweek has hosted 163 races at 12 different tracks, with 36 different drivers scoring wins. More information on Pennsylvania Sprint Car Speedweek can be found at www.paspeedweeks.com

All the action takes place on Sunday, June 28 with pre-race tickets going on sale at 11:30 AM at the Path Valley Speedway, the pre-race party kicking off at 12 noon at Hammond’s Grove located at: 19898 Hammond Road, Spring Run, PA – on Route 75 just up the road from the Path Valley Speedway.

25th Annual PA Speedweek Series Begins Friday At Williams Grove Speedway!

ARDC Midgets join speedweek sprints

6/21/15

Mechanicsburg ? Williams Grove Speedway will kickoff the 25th annual Pennsylvania Speedweek Series for 410 sprint cars this Friday night, June 26 at 7:30 pm.

The Williams Grove Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprints will compete in the speedweek series opener, paying $5,000 to win a 25-lap main event.

The race will be part of the 2015 Hoosier Diamond Series at the oval.

The ARDC Midgets will also be on the Friday night card.

The Williams Grove portion of the 50/50 on the night will be donated to Citizens Hose Co. No. 1 of Dillsburg as the company that supplies ambulance coverage to the speedway.

Thanks to speedweek series title sponsors Jake?s WayBack Burgers and Trone Outdoor, the 2015 speedweek series champion will receive a hefty and fitting $10,000 for the laurels.

Williams Grove Speedway first began hosting the start of the highly successful series back in 2013.

Greg Hodnett, the current Williams Grove season and Diamond Series point leader, won that first Williams Grove kickoff with Danny Dietrich scoring the opener at the track last year.

Williams Grove will play host to its second and biggest night of the 2015 series one week later, on July 3 at 7:30 pm, when it hosts ?The Crown Jewel Of Speedweek,? The Mitch Smith Memorial.

The Smith Memorial pays $10,000 to the winner.

This year will mark the 27th running of the prestigious event honoring the late area hot shoe.

Clearly, current Grove point leader Greg Hodnett is the man to beat in speedweek action.

The Spring Grove pilot owns four career titles in the series but his car owner, Mike Heffner of Hellertown has yet to garner a crown.

And this could be the year for Heffner.

His car and Hodnett have already won twice at the Grove alone this season and eight other times during their campaign thus far, making them the win leaders in the East and one of the top performing teams in the nation.

The quest for the speedweek title all starts Friday night, at 7:30 pm, at Williams Grove Speedway.

Adult general admission for the show is $16 with youth ages 13 ? 20 admitted for $10.

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

The Williams Grove Saturday Series featuring the super sportsman continues on Saturdays during the summer months with race time at 7 pm each week.

Port Royal Speedway

6/20/15

Port Royal - Due to the impending rainfall from tropical system Bill, Port Royal Speedway has cancelled its June 20 racing program featuring the UFO Late Models.

Calls from traveling late model and sprint car teams questioning the wisdom of attempting to race started coming in early Saturday morning and with rain already in southeast Pennsylvania by 10 am, oval officials determined it made the most sense in the interest of traveling fans and racers to halt the evening of activity.

Port Royal and UFO officials are working to determine a suitable make up date for the UFO event before the circuit returns for its final show of the year in the Renninger Memorial Juniata County Fair Opener on September 5.

In addition, oval officials and Moon Shine Camo, the event sponsor, will be announcing a make up date for the Moon Shine promotion next week.

The next event at Port Royal Speedway is next Saturday, June 27 at 7 pm when the Interstate Truck and Tractor Pullers Association sanctions a six division pull on the speedway frontstretch, featuring Pro Stock Semi Tractor Trailers, Lite Limited Turbo tractors, 11000 Hot Stock tractors, 4 x 4 Modified Trucks and street diesels.

The oval then hosts PA Speedweek for sprints along with super late models and xtreme stocks on July 4 at 7:30 pm.

Wolfe Rockets Through Field, Scores Popular & Pleasing Williams Grove Sprints Win

Campbell scores 358 sprint championship

6/19/15

Mechanicsburg – Lucas Wolfe scored a popular and crowd pleasing sprint car victory at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, pocketing some $4,360 for the 25-lap main event.

In the 25-lap championship event for 358 sprints it was Matt Campbell scoring the win to become the fifth different winner in as many races at the track.

Aboard his orange No. 5W, Wolfe started the 410 sprint feature in the eighth spot and remained outside the top five during the early going while polesitter Kyle Reinhardt paced the field.

Reinhardt was chased by third starter Freddie Rahmer from the beginning and when the races only caution flag appeared for a spin by Greg Hodnett on the third lap, Rahmer took his swipe at the lead.

But Rahmer could only stay close to Reinhardt for about two laps before falling off the leader’s pace.

Meanwhile, Wolfe cracked the top five, getting by Brian Montieth with 12 laps recorded and from that point on he rocketed forward with tremendous entry speed in the corners.

He took fourth with 11 laps to go then got by Cory Haas for third on the 18th tour.

With five laps to go Wolfe had disposed of Rahmer as the leaders raced through traffic and it took up until the two to go point for Wolfe to be in position to pull off a pass for the win.

But despite being close enough, it seemed as though Wolfe would hold off until the final lap and that’s exactly what he did despite almost being foiled by heavy traffic.

With a good run off of the second corner and down the backchute on the final circuit, Wolfe drew up on Reinhardt’s bumper but a lapped car directly under the leader seemed like it would halt Wolfe’s charge in the final corners.

However Wolfe pushed his car and skill to the limit when he suddenly thrust his racer right in between Reinhardt on top and the slow car on the inside, using the middle to perfection as all three cars shot into the corner.

And that move scored Wolfe his 12th career victory at the oval and won him a $250 bonus for a last lap pass plus another $500 for winning from the fourth row.

Reinhardt finished a career best second followed by another career best for Freddie Rahmer.

Cory Haas was fourth and Alan Krimes completed the top five.

Sixth through 10th went to Brent Marks, Danny Dietrich, Lance Dewease, Steve Buckwalter and Daryl Stimeling.

Heats went to Rodney Westhafer, Marks and Krimes with Mark Smith taking the consolation.

Campbell led all 25 laps of the 358 sprint main after the race go off to a rocky start with a nine car pile up in the first corner.

The new lineup placed Chase Dietz in fourth for the restart and he chased Campbell the entire distance, getting close in traffic on several occasions only to see Campbell get away once clearing the slower cars.

Jordan Givler held third early before giving way to Kevin Nouse.

Doug Hammaker raced home fourth with Givler crossing the finish line in fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Adrian Shaffer, Chandler Leiby, Rich Eichelberger, Chad Trout and Phil Walter.

Heats went to Dietz, Todd Reed and Campbell.

MACH 1 360/358 SPRINT CHALLENGE ADDED TO LINCOLN SPEEDWAY SCHEDULE, SATURDAY NIGHT, JULY 11

The twice postponed MACH 1 360/358 Sprint Challenge has been rescheduled and added to the weekly Lincoln Speedway racing program on Saturday night, July 11. Event Promoters Bob Miller and Ray Herold have been working with Lincoln Speedway management to find a date that would work and to avoid potential conflicts with other tracks or organizations.

The show will include the make-up "B" Main followed by the $2,500 to win 25 lap MACH 1 Challenge event. The eighteen cars that qualified through the heat race events will line up in this order. 25 Josh Weller, 22 Troy Betts, 08 Jason Clauss, 4 Jimmy Stitzel, 28F Davie Franek, 25 Aaron Ott, 7 Ed Aikin, 27 Greg Hodnett, 4R Kevin Nouse,, 56 Randy West, 9D Kevin Darling, 88B Andy Best, 2W Glendon Forsythe, 7C Chad Trout, M1 Mark Smith, 5G Curt Michael, 21T Scott Fisher, 8C Brian Carber.

The "B" Main line-up includes 27 Jay Galloway, 28 Keith Prutzman, 5 Tyler Ross, 98 Joe Trenca, 17J Jonathan Swanson, 12 Mark Bittinger, 97 Brie Hershey, 77w Will Eggimann, 9 Wes Irwin, 79 Jordan Thomas, 12B Brad Franks, 16 Matt Campbell, 38 Mark Strickler, 14 Anthony Fiore.

The 358 sprint weekly Lincoln competitors will have a complete show to be part of as well on July 11. For the 360 sprint drivers already in the feature line-up or scheduled to start the "B"Main, four complimentary pit passes will be provided to each team. 360 sprint drivers planning to complete in the show are required to confirm their participation to receive their pit passes. To confirm your participation and pit passes, please call Bob Miller at 443 513 4456. It is required that the 360 driver pre-enter to receive their pit passes.

Although there is no perfect solution, we feel this is the best approach to get the show completed in 2015. We thank the competitors and Lincoln Speedway for helping us to make this happen.

MACH 1 CHASSIS $10,000-TO-WIN NATONAL OPEN FOR 360 SPRINT CARS THIS SATURDAY AT SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY Greg Hodnett Expected To Join The Field For This Weekend’s Race

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – The 15th Annual Mach 1 Chassis National Open for 360 sprint cars is expected to draw a talented field of drivers chasing after the $10,000 top prize to win the 35-lap main event sanctioned with the United Racing Club this Saturday, June 20, at Selinsgrove Speedway.

Greg Hodnett of Spring Grove, one of the nation’s leading 410 sprint car winners this season, is tentatively scheduled to compete in this weekend’s lucrative event offering a purse exceeding $35,000, one of the largest of any 360 sprint car race in the United States. Finishing second in the race will earn a driver $5,000, with $1,000 posted for a 10th-place finish, and $500 just to start the race.

One of Hodnett’s 10 wins this season was in the Ray Tilley Classic for 410 sprint cars at Selinsgrove Speedway May 24. He is slated to be one of the guests on this Thursday’s edition of “The Inside Lane” on ESPN 92.3 airing 5-6 p.m.

A new qualifying format will be utilized for this year’s race, including one round of sprint car heat races that will award passing points to determine the starting lineup for the A-main.

Track gates will open at 5 p.m., with racing slated to begin at 7:30 p.m. The pro stocks will also be on the racing card.

The rain date, if needed, will be Sunday, June 21, at 7 p.m.

In 358-360 sprint car Open history at Selinsgrove Speedway, 14 races have produced nine different winners since 2001.

TJ Stutts of Liverpool won the inaugural race in 2001 and scored victories in 2003 and 2013. In Pat Cannon of Etters, however, was the first three-time winner of the 358-360 sprint car Open in 2012. Cannon’s other victories were 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.

In last year’s Open, Aaron Ott of East Berlin scored the victory in the track’s first-ever $10,000-to-win race for 358-360 sprint cars.

In 360 sprint car racing at the speedway this season, defending track champion Mark Smith of Sunbury has four wins and leads the Mach 1 Chassis points standings over defending United Racing Club champion and one-time Selinsgrove winner this year Davie Franek of Wantage, N.J. Eric Tomacek of Abbottstown returned to sprint car racing this season and has one win at the track. Stutts, the only winner this season who has previously won the Open, took the victory in last weekend’s Joe Whitcomb Memorial.

Fred Rahmer Promotions Adds a Full-Day of Fun at PA Speedweek Sprint Car Event with Pre-Race “PARTY AT THE PATH” Path Valley Speedway Pennsylvania Sprint Speedweek Event on Sunday, June 28

SPRING RUN, Pa. (June 14, 2015) – They don’t call Fred Rahmer the “King of Speedweek” for nothing, boasting 13 of the 24 series titles, when he was an active competitor. Now, for the 25th Anniversary of Speedweek, Rahmer is celebrating in a different way -- with a FREE pre-race bash at local venue: Hammond’s Grove, just prior to the Sunday, June 28 Pennsylvania Sprint Car Speedweek event at the Path Valley Speedway. Giving fans the opportunity to “Party at the Path.”

“We’re always trying to find unique ways to get the fans involved,” Rahmer explained. “Everyone’s started using the hashtag ‘Party at the Path’ on social media and we decided to give them an all-day event.”

The Pre-Race Party at the Path kicks off at Noon at Hammond’s Grove, just up the road from Path Valley Speedway. Live music from rock band Southern Edge will compliment food, games and prizes, with appearances from a variety of the PA Sprint Speedweek competitors.

The Pre-Race Party is FREE of charge, with the purchase of tickets to the evening’s event at the Path Valley Speedway. Fans can purchase tickets to the race starting at 11:30AM, those tickets will also allow access to the pre-race festivities.

All of this leads to the fastest cars on dirt, the 410 Sprint Cars, at the Path Valley ¼ mile highbanks. The area’s top competitors will participate in a 40 lap, $5,000-to-win main event – like all Fred Rahmer promotions events the buck doesn’t stop there. A $500 bonus is offered to the winner of each 410 Sprint Car qualifying heat event – as long as that winner comes from outside the front row -- if a driver from the front row picks up the victory they will receive $200 for their win, and the additional $300 will be added into the Lawrence Chevrolet Non-Qualifiers event jackpot.

Lawrence Chevrolet of Mechanicsburg, PA presents the Non-Qualifiers event with a guaranteed winner’s share of $500 – but that jackpot could reach as high as $1,700 depending on the results of the qualifying heat events. At the 2014 Speedweek event, Chandler Leiby earned $1,100 for his non-qualifiers win and at the April 26 event TJ Stutts earned $1,400 for his non-qualifiers win.

Hoosier Racing Tires gets involved with a 410 Sprint Car contingency bonus that sees six right rear Hoosier Tires being distributed to drivers based on a fan vote, as well as four right rear Hoosier tires that will be distributed to 600cc Winged Micro Sprint drivers based on a random drawing.

The June 28th at the Path Valley Speedway marks the third event of the Pennsylvania Sprint Speedweek schedule – which offers nine races in ten days, with $250,000 in race payouts. With sponsorship support from Wayback Burgers and associate sponsorship from Trone Outdoor Advertising a $25,000 point fund will be offered with $10,000 going to the series champion. Celebrating its 25 season, Pennsylvania Sprint Speedweek has hosted 163 races at 12 different tracks, with 36 different drivers scoring wins. More information on Pennsylvania Sprint Car Speedweek can be found at www.paspeedweeks.com

This marks the third Fred Rahmer Promotions event at the Path Valley Speedway. Previous event winners include Brady Bacon (2014 Speedweeks) and Chad Kemenah (April 2015).

All the action takes place on Sunday, June 28 with pre-race tickets going on sale at 11:30 AM at the Path Valley Speedway, the pre-race party kicking off at 12 noon at Hammond’s Grove located at: 19898 Hammond Road, Spring Run, PA – on Route 75 just up the road from the Path Valley Speedway.

Back at the track: pit gates open at 12:00 noon, grandstand gates open at 2:00 PM, and hot laps start at 6:00 PM with time trials immediately following.

The Central PA 358 Point Series presented by Capitol Renegade

This weekend The Central PA 358 Point Series presented by Capitol Renegade is a wide open weekend for the drivers. Friday night the teams can race at Trail Way Speedway or Williams Grove Speedway who will host a special Summer Championship paying the winner $1,200. Saturday night the series heads to Lincoln Speedway where the 2015 Nouse Sign and Graphics Summer Series kicks off. The 4 race series will see 4 races run between Lincoln and Williams Grove Speedway with a big point fund for all the drivers to race for as well as a ton of special prizes and extra money for all the 358 race teams. All 4 of the summer series races are double point races for the Central PA 358 Point Series presented by Capitol Renegade, so this weekend all the race teams can earn extra points by running both nights. 1 driver could earn 180 points if he wins both his heat races this weekend as well as wins both features. That is a major point swing, so look for some teams to go all out for the top spot to not only claim the extra money up for grabs, but to also score maximum points as they head towards the finish line of the 358 point series and the $3,000 going to the series Champion.

Saturday July 4th will see Ashley Cappetta receive her 2015 Central PA 358 Point Series presented by Capitol Renegade Most Popular Driver Award. Ashley, the only driver to win the award twice will be given the award at intermission of the 358 summer championship at Lincoln Speedway.

Williams Grove Speedway

Scott Geesey, Dan Zechman, Ryan Smith, and Steven Dove Win Williams Grove Speedway Saturday Night Races

Mechanicsburg, PA., June 14, 2015

“My car was stuck and that is 90 percent of the game,” Scott Geesey said following his Williams Grove Speedway Saturday Night Series Super Sportsman victory. “What I love the most is passing. Win, lose or draw, at the end of the night if we pass race cars, I am a happy camper.”

The 20-lap Blazer’s Body Shop feature went under immediate caution due to a false start. Before the restart, pole sitter Devin Beidel dropped out of the event due to mechanical issues. Steve Fannasy moved to the pole and sprinted into the lead. Tom Wyckoff, Chad Trout and Doug Dodson trailed Fannasy. Scott Geesey, the eighth-place starter, slipped into fifth.

Geesey, from Wellsville, went to the outside lane and began systematically eliminating the competition. By the completion of lap four Geesey had his No. 41 in second position.

Steve Fannasy held a ten-length advantage. Within two laps Scott Geesey narrowed the gap to three lengths. In the seventh circuit Geesey used the top lane in turns three and four to sweep by Fannasy. Two laps later Geesey held a commanding 15-length edge.

Chad Criswell was on the move. The West Virginia driver captured second place by the midway point of the show. With each passing lap Criswell crept closer to leader Geesey. As Scott Geesey encountered slower traffic, Chad Criswell was 1.7 seconds behind.

Scott Geesey slithered his way through traffic. Geesey crossed the finish line ten-lengths ahead of Chad Criswell. The victory is Geesey’s 13th career Saturday Night Series triumph placing him second on the all-time feature winner’s list. Steve Fannasy was third with Doug Dodson in fourth and Chad Trout was fifth.

Qualifying wins for the 27 entries went to Geesey, Trout and Dodson. The consolation victory goes to Rich Eichelberger. Chad Criswell received the Sprint Aces Hard Charger award.

Dan Zechman started second at the beginning of the 20-lap Credit Connection Auto Sales 358 Late Model feature. Sam Rial, Alan Sagi, Dave Latsha, and Scott Richwine were in pursuit. A third-lap caution came when Rial spun collecting Richwine.

Dave Latsha used the restart to wrestle second from Alan Sagi. Leader Dan Zechman gained a comfortable 12-length edge. Zechman increased his lead as Dave Latsha, Alan Sagi, Billy Wampler, Wes Alleman, Gene Knaub, and Travis Mease had an intense battle for second.

Zechman’s 4.1 second lead disappeared due to a lap 14 caution. The Hanover driver held an eight-length lead when the final caution came in the 17th circuit. Dan Zechman had no competition and he won his second of the year, the third of his career, by 12 lengths over Dave Latsha, Billy Wampler, Alan Sagi, and Gene Knaub.

Alleman and Shaun Jones won the preliminaries for the 20 entries. Billy Wampler won the Artwerks Hard Charger award.

The Aquafun Pools Street Stocks competed in two 15-lap features. Wayne Dutterer led the first four laps of the first feature. Point leader Jeff Haag used a third-lap restart to pass Dutterer at the exit of turn two.

Jeff Haag gained an eighth-mile advantage. Wayne Dutterer and pole sitter Ryan Smith fought for second. Walt Lemmon and Craig Morgan joined the battle for the runner-up spot. Ryan Smith gained possession of second during the 12th lap.

The race had a drastic change with two-lap remaining. Jeff Haag’s victory hopes disappeared when the engine expired in his Camaro. The restart resulted in a massive pile up in turn one; Scott Strickler’s car rolled over in the melee. Strickler walked away from the wreck.

Ryan Smith led the remaining two laps. He won his first Saturday Night Series feature by six lengths over Craig Morgan. Smith becomes the 31st career Saturday Night Series Street Stock winner. Wayne Dutterer was third with Steven Dove in fourth and Jasen Geesaman was fifth.

Steven Dove and Wayne Dutterer were in the front row for the beginning of the second Street Stock feature. The race developed into a five-car fight for first between Dutterer, Dove, Ryan Smith, Jasen Geesaman, and Craig Morgan.

The event’s only caution came in the fourth circuit. Following the restart the five-car competition continued. Steven Dove became the new leader in the ninth pass of the oval. Dutterer, fighting a flat left front tire and exposed sheet metal, dropped off the pace before exiting the event.

The trio of Steven Dove, Ryan Smith and Craig Morgan were dueling for the lead. Morgan slipped into second with a lap remaining. On the final lap, in the third and fourth turns, Morgan went to the outside of Dove and Smith. Steven Dove, from Lebanon, crossed the finish line three feet ahead of Craig Morgan. Ryan Smith was a close third with Todd Bowersox in fourth and Kory Sites was fifth.

Doug Bennett, Kevin Sigler and Geesaman won the heats for the 31 entries with the consolation going to Sean Dawson. Danny Farlling and Craig Morgan won Artwerks Hard Charger awards. Walt Lemmon received the Hard Luck award.

The Saturday Night Series returns to action this week featuring the Blazer’s Body Shop Super Sportsman, Credit Connection Auto Sales 358 Late Models and Aquafun Pools Street Stocks.

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY

13 June 2015 CONTACT: Steve Inch

STUTTS BECOMES FOUR-TIME WINNER OF WHITCOMB MEMORIAL; RINE RETURNS IN WINNING FORM IN LATE MODELS; MITCH SCORES CONVINCING PRO STOCK VICTORY; BISSINGER’S FIRST NIGHT BACK NETS ROADRUNNER WIN

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – TJ Stutts of Liverpool and Davie Franek of Wantage, N.J., engaged in another thrilling wheel-to-wheel battle that was reminiscent of a race Franek won a few weeks ago, only this time it was Stutts who rolled into Victory Lane for the first time this season Saturday night in the 30-lap Joe Whitcomb Memorial for 360 sprint cars at Selinsgrove Speedway.

The $2,571 win, which made him the first four-time winner of the Whitcomb Memorial, was Stutts’ 21st career in 358-360 sprint car racing at the track.

Mark Smith of Sunbury was the night’s Fast Tees Fast Qualifier with a lap time of 17.307 (110.16 average mph).

Jeff Rine of Danville returned to Selinsgrove and scored his third win of the season and 94th career at the track in the 25-lap late model main event.

Brad Mitch of McClure checked out from the field to score his second 15-lap pro stock main of the year, while Keith Bissinger of Orangeville won his first race of the year in his first time out this season in the 12-lap roadrunner event.

Stutts started on the pole and drove into the lead in the sprint car feature but his drive to Victory Lane was anything but easy. Early in the race, second-place starter Derek Locke raced in Stutts’s shadow while fourth-place starter Davie Franek made it a close three-car battle at the front of the pack.

The caution flag unfurled on lap two when Mark Smith’s car stopped on the track with wheel trouble. Smith was able to rejoin the race and made a charge back through the pack during the remaining 28 laps.

The race was stopped on lap 10 when Jared Zimbardi flipped his sprint car in turn four. Zimbardi escaped injury. When the race resumed, an intense see-saw battle for the lead unfolded between Stutts and Franek. The war on wheels was held up again when Michael Walter and John Braim were involved in a double flip in turn two. Both drivers were not injured.

During the second half of the race, Stutts and Franek raced side-by-side while Smith eventually made his way into the third position. At the checkered flag Stutts took the victory by 1.9 seconds over Franek, Smith, Locke, and Ryan Kissinger.

Outside front row starter Hayes Mattern dueled with polesitter Danny Snyder for the early lead in the super late model feature. Mattern pulled into the front spot and stretched his lead during the first half of the race over fourth-place starter Donnie Schick.

At the halfway point, ninth-place starter Jeff Rine stormed into the runner up position and set his sights on Mattern. On the 14th circuit, Rine caught Mattern and made the winning pass using the inside lane off turn four.

On lap 19, Schick withdrew from the race as seventh-place starter Steve Campbell began to show a lot of speed. At the finish, Rine was victorious by 5.2 seconds over Mattern, Campbell, eighth-place starter Jim Yoder, and 10th-place starter Chad Hollenbeck.

Polesitter Jake Buck powered into the lead at the start of the pro stock feature and was chased by fifth-place starter Brad Mitch for the first lap until Mitch made the winning pass in turn two. Once in front of the pack, Mitch checked out from the field while Buck contended with seventh-place starter Adam Campbell for the runner up position.

At the finish, Mitch was victorious by a full five seconds over Buck, Campbell, third-place starter Derrick Garman, and 10th-place starter Nathan Long.

Polesitter Dustin Snook and fourth-place starter Bob Bussey were dueling at the front of the pack when contact between the drivers allowed ninth-place starter Keith Bissinger to storm into the lead on the fifth circuit.

Bissinger kept his trademark green “tank” No. 11 at the front of the pack for the rest of the distance and scored the win by 1.8 seconds over John Fowler Jr., Snook, Jeff Ceballo, and Bussey.

Weikert’s Livestock Unveils Title Sponsorship Of Port Royal Sprint Cars

6/14/15

Port Royal – Weikert’s Livestock of Fairfield has taken ownership of title sponsorship of the 410 sprint car division at Port Royal Speedway as was announced Saturday night at the track.

Synonymous with sprint car racing in the annals of history, the famous family business now in its third generation of ownership has proudly partnered with the track to fly the Port Royal sprint car flag.

“We’re awful proud of what we do and what we’ve accomplished,” says Weikert’s Livestock owner and president Todd Weikert of the day-to-day operations at the multi-million dollar firm.

“And we’re just as proud of Port Royal for what it’s become over the last five years and a stronger relationship with Port Royal just makes good sense for us,” Weikert says.

In late April, Todd Weikert announced in conjunction with Port Royal officials that the annual, prestigious Bob Weikert Memorial will expand to a two-day format at the historic oval in 2016, spanning the Memorial Day holiday weekend.

The Weikert name rose to prominence on the back of the famed Weikert’s Livestock No. 29 sprint car during the decades of the 1970s, 80s and early 90s.

With the car campaigning from coast to coast including at Port Royal, experiencing unprecedented success, Bob Weikert’s forays in the sport laid groundwork for the current prosperity being experienced at Weikert’s Livestock.

Weikert’s Livestock buys and sells cattle from coast to coast with more than 50-percent of its clientele placed west of the Mississippi.

“A big part of our clients are race enthusiasts,” says Todd Weikert, “It’s a network.”

In addition to the commerce they conduct in the livestock trade, the firm also owns and operates some 600 acres of farmland in south central Pennsylvania.

Sixth Starting Spot Is Charm For Hodnett, Yoder & Miller At Port Royal Saturday

Davis gets xtreme stocks

6/13/15

Port Royal – Greg Hodnett ran down and passed Doug Esh to claim the 25-lap 410 sprint car feature at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night, scoring his third oval win of the season worth $3,200.

In the 22-lap super late model main, Selinsgrove’s Dylan Yoder recorded his first speedway win of the year after garnering a host of podium finishes leading up to the event.

In the 305 sprint main, it was defending track series champion Jeff Miller of Huntingdon scoring the victory while Jason Davis won his second of the year in the xtreme stock division.

Esh had the outside of the front row for the start of the 410 sprint main and he took the lead at the start over polesitter Brock Zearfoss while sixth starter Hodnett leaned on Mike Wagner for third.

Esh was at the front of the field with four laps down when a stoppage occurred for a crash by Tyler Bear in the third corner.

The restart saw Hodnett duck under Wagner to take third for good but only that lap was completed before the race pace was slowed again, this time for fifth runner Kyle Reinhardt who spun out.

Hodnett worked on Zearfoss when action resumed while 11th starter Kevin Nouse worked forward to break into the top five just as Hodnett put a move on Zearfoss for second with eight laps recorded.

Esh entered the backmarkers on the 11th loop with Hodnett keeping pace when the events final yellow unfurled for a tangle in the first turn that saw Wayne Dadetto spin and Zearfoss make contact, falling out of third place.

Esh had a lapped car as a buffer between he and Hodnett for the restart but Hodnett soon disposed of the car to work directly on Esh.

As Esh circled the high cushion, Hodnett stalked him, loosing some ground upon exiting the turns while gaining upon entry.

But it was that power on entry that gave him the lead on the 19th tour when he blasted across the bottom entering the third turn to complete a clean sweep into control and begin driving off from the field.

Lucas Wolfe powered into third late in the event to finish behind Esh.

Wagner rode home fourth followed by Nouse.

Sixth through 10th went to Steve Buckwalter, Ryan Taylor, Dylan Cisney, Logan Wagner and Rick Lafferty.

Heats for the 27-car field went to Dylan Cisney, Buckwalter and Hodnett with Logan Wagner taking the consolation race.

Justin Kaan of Hesston took the lead over Patrick Bryner at the start of the super late model main with Dylan Yoder starting sixth.

Yoder was up to third by the seventh tour and was still in the spot on the 11th lap when Matt Parks slowed, regrouping the field for a restart.

Yoder motored under Bryner for second at the new green but then Bryner lost the handle with nine laps to go, spinning out and again slowing the field.

Kaan looked good holding off Yoder when the race restarted and after fighting of Yoder’s attempts, he began getting away with the lead.

But Yoder changed his lane and ran down the advantage on the 19th tour and just as it seemed he was going to make a charge for the lead, Kaan suddenly dropped off the pace and gave up the race.

With Yoder in control, Mike Lufper was now up to second and the pair was headed for the checkers when Trent Brenneman came up with mechanical ills in the second turn, falling out of fourth.

Yoder drove away from Lupfer for the win on the final lap following a return to action.

It was Yoder’s sixth career win at the oval, coming over Lupfer, a surging Jason Schmidt, Andy Haus and Mitch Hack.

Sixth through 10th went to Tim Wilson, Waylon Wagner, Tim Smith Jr., Andrew Yoder and Bob Dunn.

Heats went to Bryner and Hack.

Reed Thompson led the first five laps of the 305 sprint main as Jeff Miller worked the field, also from the sixth starting spot, just like the previous two winners on the night.

Miller used a restart on the fourth lap to swoop to the outside of John Martin for second before driving by Thompson on the next lap to take a lead he would not relinquish nor be heeded for.

It was his second win of the year at the track.

Martin rode home third followed by Tyler Reeser and Cale Reigle.

Heats went to Miller, Johnathan Jones and Reeser.

Jason Davis started third in the 15-lap xtreme stock feature event and took the lead from Walt Peters on the second lap.

Davis got passed by ninth starter Pete Leister for the lead on the seventh tour and Leister appeared headed for his second win of the season before falling out of the event with four laps to go.

That gave the lead back to Davis who went on to claim his second win of the year in the division.

Jason Zook rode home second followed by Mike Goodwin, Bill Powell and Travis Horan.

MONTIETH STARTS ON POLE, HOLDS OFF DIETRICH FOR THIRD LINCOLN ALL-STAR WIN;

Halligan scores second career win in 358 sprints

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 6/13/2015 – Different story, same result in Saturday’s 30-lap, $5,000-to-win All Star Circuit of Champions feature event at Lincoln Speedway.

Brian Montieth won again, his fifth Lincoln win and eighth overall win of 2015. And although he started on the pole, it was his dash win that may have made the difference.

“Obviously, if we would have started in the middle of the field there like Danny (Dietrich) did, we’d have finished there. I wasn’t real happy with this thing,” said Montieth upon exiting his Auto Locator/Premier Auto Works #21 in victory lane, “ We tried a couple of things in the heat race and tried to get a little better there in the dash, and I think we went a little too far for as fast as the track was. We keep plugging away and if wasn’t for the yellows, I wouldn’t be standing here.”

Montieth started on the pole and led every lap, twice having two-second leads wiped out by caution flags. In the meantime, two-time 2015 Lincoln winner Danny Dietrich was charging through the field from 12th starting spot, and drove under Cory Haas to move into second following a 21st-lap caution flag. Montieth again extended his lead to 1.5 seconds with five laps to go. With lapped traffic looming ahead, Dietrich began chipping away at the lead, and closed to within three-quarters of a second when the checkered flag waived.

“It just goes to show the caliber he is and the rest of the teams are here at Lincoln,” said Montieth of his Lincoln rival, “To start that deep in the field and be able run up through like that…I know what a pain in the butt that is. Fortunately, we had clear air and I’m standing here.”

The win was the 49th of Montieth’s Lincoln career.

Haas crossed third, followed by All-Star points leader Dale Blaney and Austin Hogue. Sixth through tenth were Aaron Ott, 18th-starting Sheldon Haudenschild, Tim Shaffer, Kyle Moody, and Lance Dewease.

Niki Young was uninjured in a spectacular second-lap crash on the front stretch.

Heats for the 410’s were won by Moody, Freddie Rahmer, Dewease, and Hogue, with Parker Price-Miller winning the B-Main. Brian Montieth won the Dash. Fast time in time trials over the 40-car field was set by Dale Blaney with a one-lap time of 13.079-seconds (103.219 MPH).

Jeff Halligan took advantage of leader Phil Walter’s spinout in turn two of lap 15 to score his second win of the year in the 20-lap “358” sprint car feature. Walter was in the midst of a six-car race for the lead when Walter was collected by a spinning lapped car, and incident which also collected fifth-place and Lincoln points leader Doug Hammaker.

Halligan led the final five laps to join Hammaker as the only repeat winners of the season. Dwight Leppo caught Matt Campbell on the final lap, with Campbell, Isaac Sneeringer, and lady driver Brie Hershey rounding out the top five.

Heats for the 27 358’s were won by Campbell, Halligan, and Sneeringer, with Bill Stine winning the consolation.

Next Saturday night, June 20th, it will be the first of two BAPS NIGHTS on the season, featuring the Lawrence Chevrolet 410 Sprints PLUS the 358 Sprint “Nouse Signs & Graphics Summer Series” event and the Central PA Legends. Racing gets underway at 7:30 PM, with gates opening at 5:30 PM.

Street Stock Twin 15-Lap Features Highlight Saturday Williams Grove Speedway Show

Mechanicsburg, PA., June 9, 2015

Williams Grove Speedway’s Saturday Night Series returns to action this weekend. Highlighting the evening’s racing will be two 15-lap features for the popular Aquafun Pools Street Stocks. Joining the Street Stocks will be the Blazer Body Shop Super Sportsman and Credit Connection Auto Sales 358 Late Models.

Jeff Haag from Auburn is dominating Street Stock action. Haag’s Camaro won four of the first five events. The other driver to visit victory lane was Greg Diehl. Last Saturday Haag defeated the 26-car field. Dustin Hollinger, Steven Dove, Doug Hoffman, and Craig Morgan completed the top five. Greg Diehl won the Artwerks Hard Charger award.

Chad Criswell won last week’s Super Sportsman main event. It was the Martinsburg, West Virginia driver’s first Saturday Night Series victory and his second Sportsman Tour win of the year. Scott Geesey, Chad Trout, Steve Fannasy, and Scott Dellinger trailed the winner. Davey Walsh was awarded the Sprint Aces Hard Charger money. Twenty-six Super Sportsman entered the show.

In 358 Late Model action Billy Wampler made his first visit to victory lane. Wampler, from York Haven, defeated Ron Kline, Dave Latsha, Travis Mease, and Alan Sagi. Dan Zechman received the Artwerks Hard Charger award. Fifteen 358 Late Models took part in the racing.

This week Williams Grove Speedway will donate the speedway’s half of the 50/50 money to Speranza Animal Rescue in Mechanicsburg, PA.

Last week’s School’s Out promotion was a big hit with the children. The new promotion, honoring the match challenge students from the elementary schools of Monroe and South Mountain, brought many families to the speedway. A thank you goes out to all drivers that brought their cars to the infield for the festivities.

Race qualifying begins at 7 PM. Adults will watch four features for the low admission price of six dollars with children 12 and under free.

 

 

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY

$2,571-TO-WIN WHITCOMB MEMORIAL FOR 358-360 SPRINT CARS WILL CARRY PATRIOT SPRINT TOUR SANCTION JUNE 13; TRACK SWITCHES TO 7:30 PM SUMMER START TIME; PRO STOCK 20 RESCHEDULED FOR JUNE 27

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Selinsgrove Speedway will honor the memory of sprint car driver Joe Whitcomb with the 12th running of the Joe Whitcomb Memorial for 358-360 sprint cars at 7:30 p.m. this Saturday, June 13, sanctioned by the Patriot Sprint Tour. The super late models, pro stocks, and roadrunners will also be on the racing card. Track gates will open at 5 p.m.

The 30-lap sprint car feature, a tribute to honor the late open wheel racer from Millersburg who succumbed to injuries sustained in a sprint car racing accident at the track on June 21, 2003, will pay $2,571 to win and $225 to start. Time trials, heat races, and a B-main will be the qualifying format for the special event.

The June 13 event will carry the second-ever sanction by the Patriot 360 sprint car tour based in Sodus, N.Y. The race will allow both the Patriot Sprint Tour and Selinsgrove Speedway tire and wing rules. 358 sprint car teams will also be permitted to compete with the Patriot group.

In last year’s Whitcomb Memorial, TJ Stutts of Liverpool (2014, 2012, 2011) became the third driver to win the race three times after a thrilling wheel-to-wheel duel with Mark Smith of Sunbury.

Pat Cannon of Etters (2013, 2010, 2009) and Blane Heimbach of Selinsgrove (2008, 2007, 2006) are the other two drivers who have won the tribute race three times. Other previous winners include Nate Snyder of Halifax (2004) and Kevin Nagy of East Brunswick, N.J. (2005).

Whitcomb, a dedicated racer most of his life, began his career in go-karts at the age of seven. He won hundreds of races in karting and was a three-time national karting champion. A highlight during his karting career was an appearance on ESPN.

In 2001, Whitcomb became a regular competitor at Selinsgrove in the 358 sprint car, driving his trademark blue and yellow number 71 racer. That year, Whitcomb became Selinsgrove Speedway’s Sportsman of the Year.

Whitcomb won his first sprint car race at Selinsgrove on June 8, 2002, ending the five-race winning streak of champion Chad Layton of Harrisburg. Whitcomb also won sprint car races at Williams Grove and Bridgeport Speedways during his racing career.

Selinsgrove Raceway Park will present a program of go kart and 125 micro sprint car racing at 7 p.m. Friday, June 12.

The A&A Auto Stores Pro Stock 20 that was rained out on May 30 has been rescheduled for Saturday, June 27.

SMITH HOLDS OFF STUTTS FOR WIN IN 360 SPRINT CAR THRILLER; HOLLENBECK MAKES LAST-TURN PASS FOR FIRST CAREER LATE MODEL WIN; LONG EDGES OUT SHOOP FOR SECOND PRO STOCK WIN

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Wherever Mark Smith travels to race this season – Florida, Pennsylvania, even Canada – the Sunbury driver seems to have no problem finding Victory Lane. For the fourth time this season at Selinsgrove Speedway, Smith scored a thrilling victory over TJ Stutts of Liverpool by just .64 of a second in Saturday’s 25-lap United Racing Club 360 sprint car feature.

Driving the Mach 1 Chassis house car, Smith collected $2,000 for his seventh overall victory this year and 14th career in 358-360 sprint car racing at the speedway.

Chad Hollenbeck of Kingsley pulled off a last-lap, last-turn pass by Gene Knaub of York for his first career super late model win at Selinsgrove Speedway in the division’s 25-lap main event, while Nathan Long of Selinsgrove held off Andrew Shoop of Mifflintown for his second win of the year in the 15-lap pro stock race.

Selinsgrove Speedway will hold the Joe Whitcomb Memorial for 360 sprint cars at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, June 13. The 30-lap tribute race will pay $2,571 to win and will be sanctioned by the Patriot Sprint Tour. Joining the sprint cars on the racing card will be the super late models, pro stocks, and roadrunners. Track gates will open at 5 p.m.

Second-place starter Jason Shultz drove into a convincing early lead at the start of the sprint car feature. Shultz was chased by polesitter Robbie Stillwaggon while fifth-place starter Mark Smith dueled with third-place starter Ryan Kissinger.

On lap seven, Smith got by Stillwaggon for second and started to navigate his way through traffic to catch Shultz. The race was stopped on lap 13 when Mallie Shuster’s car flipped out over the second turn guardrail. Shuster escaped injury.

When the race resumed, Shultz led Smith and ninth-place starter TJ Stutts back to the green flag. Exiting turn two, Smith made the winning pass using the inside lane. Two laps later, Stutts advanced to second and closed in on Smith in the final laps.

On the final lap, Stutts almost got alongside of Smith to challenge for the lead and win. At the checkered flag, Smith was victorious by .64 of a second over Stutts, Shultz, Stillwaggon, and Kissinger.

Outside front row starter Gene Knaub powered into the lead at the start of the late model feature and was chased by polesitter Hayes Mattern and third-place starter Tony Adams. Knaub stretched his lead to nearly a straightaway during the first half of the race as fifth-place starter Chad Hollenbeck started making his way through the pack.

A hard battle unfolded for the second spot between Mattern and Hayes. However, by lap seven, Hollenbeck advanced to second and set his sites on Knaub while eighth-place starter Jim Yoder raced into the third position.

In the final laps, Hollenbeck reeled in Knaub and was in striking distance on the final circuit. Racing off turn four for the checkered flag, Hollenbeck made a thrilling inside pass for the lead and scored his first win by only .14 of a second over Knaub, Yoder, Dave Zona, and Coleby Frye.

In the pro stock feature, third-place starter Nate Stroup led the first three laps until 11th-place starter Nathan Long stormed into the lead with an inside pass in turn three. At the halfway point, 12th-place starter Andrew Shoop advanced to second and began to pressure Long for the lead.

At one point, Shoop pulled alongside of Long in a bid for the lead to no avail. At the checkered flag, Long was victorious by just .47 of a second over Shoop, Adam Campbell, Dave Brouse Jr., and Jim Payne.

All Stars Sprints Poised For Another Williams Grove Run Friday

PASS 305 sprints join All Stars for Williams Grove battle with Posse!

6/7/15

Mechanicsburg – Williams Grove Speedway will host the All Stars Circuit of Champions Sprint Cars this Friday night, June 12 at 7:30 pm.

The PASS 305 sprints are also on the racing program.

The match up between the All Stars and the Pennsylvania Posse will be the second and final appearance of the season by the circuit at the track and the show is highly anticipated after a rather successful April stint in the area by the travelers.

One of the All Stars invaders, Pittsburgh’s Danny Holtgraver led the first half of the Williams Grove main event back in April before packing a wheel and falling off the pace.

Greg Hodnett went on to claim the victory.

Holtgraver will be just one of a batch of top-notch All Stars to return to the Williams Grove wars next Friday, gunning for the $5,000 top prize in the 30-lap feature event.

Also pitside will be perennial All Stars champion Dale Blaney, who finished third at the track in April.

Also expected to reappear for the June show are past champions Chad Kemenah, Tim Shaffer and Greg Wilson along with the likes of up and comers Parker Price-Miller and Sheldon Haudenschild, Ryan Smith, Cody Darrah and more.

Adult general admission for the show is $18 with youth ages 13 – 20 admitted for $10.

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

The Williams Grove portion of the 50/50 on the night will be donated to The American Red Cross as they will be conducting a blood drive at the track during the night.

The June 12 All Stars show will be another in the 2015 Hoosier Diamond Series at the track.

And given the type of contingent traveling with the All Stars in 2015, the potential for a first-ever win at Williams Grove by a bona-fide All Star in an All Star event seems quite viable.

To date, no such event has occurred, with the score currently sitting at 29-0 for the PA Posse since All Stars competition began at the oval in 1970.

The Williams Grove Saturday Series featuring the super sportsman continues on Saturdays during the summer months with race time at 7 pm each week.

Madman Ballou Storms To Port Royal USAC Sprints Victory On Cushion!

Buckwalter Drives Heffner To ARDC Checkers, Irvin Gets Econo Lates

6/7/15

Port Royal – The national stars of USAC blew through Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night for the Eastern Storm, with “The Madman,” Robert Ballou of Rocklin, Calif., taking the 30-lap, $6,000 victory in a cushion-pounding performance.

In the 20-lap ARDC Midget main it was Steve Buckwalter of Royersford driving Mike Heffner’s No. 27 midget taking the victory from deep in the field.

The victory was Buckwalter’s third at the track this season counting a pair of sprint car wins earlier. It was also car owner Heffner’s third midget win of the season with as many drivers.

Point leader Eric Irving of Petersburg overtook Andrew Yoder in the 20-lap championship for econo late models to close out the night.

Some 28 USAC National Sprint Cars entered competition for the Port Royal leg of the 2015 Eastern Storm Series with “The Throttle,” Shane Cottle of Kokomo, Ind., setting quick time in track record form for a wingless 410 sprint.

Cottle set the mark at 18.997 seconds however he failed to qualify through his heat race, instead driving into the feature through the B Main.

The 30-lap USAC feature began with Landon Simon of Tipp City, Oh., and Logan Jarrett of Kokomo, Ind., lined up on the front row with Tracy Hines and Ballou in row two.

Only one caution flag slowed the hectic non-wing pace, on the 14th tour.

Prior to that time, Simon took the lead at the start with Jarrett falling backwards while former USAC champion Hines raced into second.

Ballou slid backward at the beginning of the event, giving way to Chase Stockon of Elizabethtown, Ind., as Hines worked on the leader for control.

But Simon was up to the task, driving what by all accounts was the race of his career to date, using both sides of the speedway to maintain control.

Meanwhile, Ballou seemed stalled in fifth until just before the lone caution, when he motored into fourth.

And on the restart, the 26-year old went to work driving to the front, pounding the cushion into submission to ride by Stockon for third on the 15th tour before blasting past Hines with 12 laps to go.

Once Ballou got his pace going, his power on the cushion was clear and he used that speed and a run into the first turn to take the lead.

He dropped down from the second turn rough on the 19th tour to steer his No. 12 inside of Simon on the backchute to take the lead as the pair powered into the third corner.

With the lead, Ballou pulled away from any challenges during the final 10 laps although Stockon did have designs on the checkers.

He got by Simon for second with three laps to go and ran down Ballou’s advantage before the finish, still falling short of the top spot at the end by 1.072 seconds and closing.

Simon ended up with a podium in third followed by Hines, New Castle, Ind., and Jon Stanbrough, Avon, Ind.

Sixth through 10th went to Dave Darland, Lincoln, Ind.; defending Eastern Storm and National USAC champion Brady Bacon, Broken Arrow, Ok.; Justin Grant, Ione, Calif.; Logan Jarrett, Kokomo, Ind.; and Shane Cottle, Kokomo, Ind.

Heats went to Bacon, Ballou and Darland with Stanbrough taking the B Main.

Jim Radney led at the start of the ARDC Midget main with Ryan Greth racing in second.

Steve Buckwalter started 11th in the field and roared to the front, racing fourth on just the third lap.

He methodically drove by the cars of Brett Wanner, Greth and then leader Radney on the seventh tour to take command and check out on the field for the win.

Radney rode home second followed by Greth, Bruce Buckwalter Jr., and Steve Drevicki.

Heats for the 15-car field went to Trevor Kobylarz and Greth.

Kobylarz fell out of third in the feature event with five laps to go after spinning in the fourth turn while trying to race into second spot.

Point leader Eric Irvin started eighth in the econo late model feature while second starter Andrew Yoder took the lead.

Yoder set the pace through nearly the entire race until getting bottled up in traffic with two laps to go.

Upon running up on a backmarker on the frontchute, the pair made contact with both cars turning sideways while Irving motored by into the lead after taking second on the fifth tour.

Irvin went on to claim the win by a margin of 1.291seconds over Yoder, Tim Fedder, Harold Ranck and Shaun Miller.

Heats went to Shaun Miller and Jared Fulkroad.

DIETRICH EARNS “DIRT CLASSIC” GOLDEN TICKET WITH $ 7,000 JOHN GLEIM JR. EXCAVATING NIGHT WIN;

Hammaker makes last turn pass become first Lincoln repeat winner in 358 sprints

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 6/6/2015 – Danny Dietrich was hearing things at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

And that was good, because it kept his elbows up in a 35-lap feature that paid $7,000 to win and an automatic starting spot in the September 26th Lincoln “Dirt Classic” paying $20,000 to win.

“I don’t how far ahead I was,” said Dietrich after scoring his second Lincoln win of the year and 25th of his career in the Pigeon Hills, “When you get out front there you think you hear people. I thought Stevie was under me in turn four that one lap. I kinda moved down on the straightaway because I thought I heard somebody.”

Second place Stevie Smith, who wasn’t as close as Dietrich thought, got into Dietrich’s dirty air every time he tried to pull close, and settled for the runner-up spot 1.9 seconds behind Sandoe’s Fruit Market/Hickory Run Orchards/Weikert’s Livestock #48.

After gathering points through time trials and qualifiers that saw the early time trailers start at the back of their respective heats, Dietrich (ninth in time trials and winner of his heat) drew the number three pill for the redraw at the front of the feature field.

Polesitter and early-race leader Kyle Moody was nearly collected and did a “360” to keep moving when Brent Marks spun out on turn four of lap six. At the time, Moody had a three-second lead. Just before the caution, Dietrich caught Ott for the runner-up spot.

Moody led the next seven laps before Dietrich slid under him exiting turn two of lap 14. Dietrich led the rest of the way, and Moody did another “360” under green on turn four of lap 14, just before being collected by a spun-out Tim Glatfelter in turn one to end his night.

Ott assumed second for the restart, but Stevie Smith drove around the Bruner’s Service Center for second on lap 22. At the time, Dietrich was 1.53 seconds ahead. Smith did his best to close on the leader, and Dietrich, feeling the pressure, had one close call trying to clear Adam Wilt with only a few laps to go.

“I had to kinda push the issue with Adam,” explained Dietrich, “But I had to get moving. I wasn’t going to drive into him, but I had to press the issue and it worked out for us. Here we are.”

“Stevie’s fast every time he hits the track,” said Dietrich, “It feels good to beat him because his winning percentage is pretty darn good…a lot better than ours. To beat Stevie and Greg and Brian and Aaron…all those guys…it’s just awesome to get a win on the big stage here tonight.”

Ott settled for third, with tenth-starting Brian Montieth coming home fourth. New one-lap track record holder Lucas Wolfe crossed fifth. Sixth through tenth were Greg Hodnett, 12th-starting Alan Krimes, 14th-starting Niki Young, Lance Dewease, and 16th-starting Freddie Rahmer.

Heats for the 410’s were won by Billy Dietrich, Marks, Moody, and Danny Dietrich, with Austin Hogue winning the consolation. Fast time in time trials over the 33-car field was set by Lucas Wolfe with a record-setting one-lap time 12.719 seconds (106.140 MPH). Brent Marks won the “Fans Choice” Dash.

Lincoln Speedway and Central PA “358” Point Series leader Doug Hammaker became the first repeat winner of 2015 in the 20-lap “358” sprint feature. And he did it in dramatic fashion, sliding polesitter and race-long leader Ryan Higgins in heavy lapped traffic on the final two turns to the checkered flag.

Higgins, shooting for his first career win, settled for second, with 11th-starting Kevin Nouse, Cody Fletcher, and Tyler Esh rounding out the top five. Adrian Shaffer, who did a “360” in turn four while racing with Higgins for the lead with six laps to go, lost several spots but came back to finish sixth.

Heats for the 30 358’s were won by Hammaker, Matt Campbell, and John Braim, with Jeff Rohrbaugh winning the consolation.

Next Saturday night, June 13th, the NEW ALL-STAR CIRCUIT OF CHAMPIONS come to take on the Pennsylvania Posse. The 410 Sprints will be joined by the 358 Sprints. In addition, we will be holding York Flooring KIDS BIG WHEEL RACES! Time trials get underway at 7:30 PM, with gates opening at 5:30 PM.

Kreitz And Michael Score Exciting Williams Grove Sprint Wins

Buckwalter leads both mains, comes up with second and third

6/5/15

Mechanicsburg ? Don Kreitz Jr. scored the 61st sprint car win of his Williams Grove Speedway career on Friday night and the 200th overall of his life by taking an exciting victory over Steve Buckwalter after allowing Buckwalter to take the lead away mid-race.

In the companion 25-lap URC Sprint main an amazing battle at the front between four cars as the race finished thrilled the fans with Curt Michael coming out on top for his second club win of the season.

Kreitz started on the pole of the 410 sprint feature with Austin Hogue racing second.

Hogue challenged Kreitz briefly early before falling backward as Buckwalter charged into contention.

Kreitz entered the backmarkers on the 10th tour with Buckwalter chasing furiously and as Kreitz struggled with lapped cars, Buckwalter made repeated attempts to snare the top spot.

Buckwalter zipped around the cushion on the 20th lap to drive into control and bring the field back to the stripe just before the races only caution flag unfurled for Hogue, who shredded a tire.

Kreitz lined up second for the restart with Aaron Ott in third and when action resumed Buckwalter went low to protect the bottom.

But Buckwalter?s attempts at low-slung lines didn?t hold up for long as Kreitz pounded on his rear bumper and retook the lead for the win with three laps to go.

After reclaiming control, Kreitz streaked away from Buckwalter to take the victory worth over $3,600.

Lucas Wolfe charged into third during the final circuits with Ott finishing fourth and Lance Dewease finishing fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Danny Dietrich, Greg Hodnett, Brent Marks, Brian Montieth and Ryan Smith.

Heats for the 28-car field went to Smith, Kreitz and Dewease. There was no consolation.

ESS invader Jason Barney took the lead from the pole in the URC Sprint feature, chased by Larry Kelleher and Steve Buckwalter.

Kelleher muscled by Barney for the lead on the eighth lap with Buckwalter following him into second on the 11th tour.

At the same time, Mark Smith and Curt Michael started making noise inside the top five.

Buckwalter dogged Kelleher until the 17th circuit when he took over the lead.

Mark Smith pushed his mount into second with six laps to go but just then Michael charged into third using the low line and soon pounced on Smith for second with a pair of laps to go.

A caution flag shortly after the two-to-go sign slowed the hectic pace and change of positions and placed Michael on Buckwalter?s bumper for a final dash to the checkers.

Just like he had done in the previous main, Buckwalter tried defense when action resumed and he was able to hold off Michael back to the white flag but Michael shot his No. 5G under Buckwalter as the pair set their cars into the first corner.

Michael came out of the fracas with the lead and win while Mark Smith got by Buckwalter to steal second.

It was the Ocean View, Delaware, driver?s third victory in Williams Grove URC competition, worth $2,000.

Buckwalter was relegated to third followed by Aaron Ott and Kelleher.

Sixth through 10th went to Greg Hodnett, Barney, Tyler Ross, Glenndon Forsythe and Robbie Stillwaggon.

Heats for the 42-car field went to Ott, Hodnett, Chuck Hebing and Mark Smith.

Josh Weller scored the consolation race.

Williams Grove Speedway Saturday Night News

Williams Grove Speedway

Williams Grove Speedway Presents School’s Out Special Saturday Night

Mechanicsburg, PA June 3, 2015

The month of June means students across the Susquehanna Valley will be putting aside the pencils and commencing with summer recess. To begin the summer of fun, this Saturday Williams Grove Speedway presents the first School’s Out Special as part of the Saturday Night Series.

The School’s Out program began as a math challenge to the students of South Mountain and Monroe elementary schools. Students that successfully completed the program will attend the evening’s events.

Beginning at 5 PM, gates will open to all spectators. The first 400 children to arrive at the infield tent will each receive a fun bag that contains activity packs, goodies, and coupons for free items to enjoy throughout the summer. Wendy's, ABC West Bowling, Red Crown Bowling Center, The Pride of the Susquehanna, Wildwood Park, Alwine Nature Center, and Buffalo Wild Wings are some of the local businesses that contributed to the fun bag.

There will be race cars on display in the infield giving youngsters a close look at the racing equipment. Drivers will be present to sign autographs.

Included in the entertainment will be face painting, piñatas, and relay races in the infield, along with an inflatable obstacle course. Buffalo Wild Wings will be on hand and will have a spinning wheel to give out prizes. The Buffalo Wild Wing Mascot will also be present.

Williams Grove Speedway will donate their half of the evening’s 50/50 money to the PTOs of Monroe and South Mountain elementary schools.

The young fans will watch racing action featuring the Blazer’s Body Shop Super Sportsman, Credit Connection Auto Sales 358 Late Models and Aquafun Pools Street Stocks. Last week Scott Dellinger won his first 2015 Blazer’s Body Shop Super Sportsman main event. Gene Knaub returned to the Credit Connection Auto Sales 358 Late Model victory lane for the second straight week. In the Aquafun Pools Street Stocks Jeff Haag captured his third victory of the year.

Pit gates open this week at 4:30 PM. Practice starts at 6:30 with the first qualifying event beginning at 7.

 

 

UNSETTLED WEATHER AND A FORECAST OF RAIN THROUGHOUT THE NIGHT BRINGS CANCELLATION OF THE 2015 USAC EASTERN STORM WEDNESDAY NIGHT AT LINCOLN SPEEDWAY

It is with great disappointment, that rain will again force the cancellation of the Eastern Storm USAC Non-Wing Sprint Tour for the second night in a row, this time taking its toll at the Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, PA.

The weather is extremely unsettled and with a 50% or greater chance of rain throughout the day and late into the night, the chances of completing this event are not favorable. In 2014, we were up against very similar weather conditions and chose to battle Mother Nature and we lost. So it is with the highest respect and consideration of both race fans and competitors that we make this decision.

The Lincoln Eastern Storm event will be rescheduled when USAC returns in 2016 again offering a complete show plus the make-up features that were rained out in 2014.

For nine years, I have truly put my heart into trying to make the USAC Eastern Storm a success , promoting two or three of the tour events each year. Like many race fans, I too want to see the race, but the weather is just not working to our advantage.

Although Friday night is open for USAC, without the proper advance advertising of the rain date, this is not a good option. Other considerations also include that drivers in both divisions would also be faced with a race date conflict at another track on Friday night.

Thank you for your support and strong interest in the USAC Eastern Storm. With your help and the continued support of the current participating tracks who are part of the Eastern Storm, we will keep this non-wing excitement alive going forward.

Please watch for additional details as USAC and event promoters Bob Miller and Ray Herold set plans for the 2016 return of the USAC Eastern Storm.

The following weekend, Saturday, June 13, the Patriot Sprint Tour will sanction the 12th Annual Joe Whitcomb Memorial for 360 sprint cars.

This month the 360 sprint cars will also be featured in the $10,000-to-win 15th Annual Mach 1 Chassis National Open on Saturday, June 20.

BRIAN MONTIETH THRILLS IN ANOTHER LINCOLN WIN;

Matt Campbell wins fourth career 358 sprint main and Kurt Zimmerman leads all the way for All American Outlaw win

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 5/30/2015 – Anytime Brian Montieth is on track at Lincoln Speedway, there is never a lack of entertainment.

Montieth didn’t disappoint again Saturday night as he came from his 11th starting spot to score the win in the 25-lap 410 Sprint car feature.

But it wasn’t quite as easy as it might read on paper as the four time track champion raced past Gerard McIntyre, Jr. to take the lead on lap 19 but fell back to third a lap later after making contact with the inside guardrail.

But it didn’t faze the Phoenixville driver as he stormed back into the lead two laps later and drove off to pick up his 48th career track win and fourth this season in the Pigeon Hills.

“We had a good start,“ stated the driver of the Jerry Parrish owned No. 21 sprint. “This type of narrow track and anybody knows on a Saturday night like this, anybody can win the thing. If it wasn’t for lapped traffic, I don’t think we would have caught the leaders in that first set.”

Brandon Rahmer led the first five laps before yielding to McIntyre exiting the second turn. While McIntyre set the pace, Rahmer had his hands full with Adam Wilt, Cory Haas and Montieth who was marching his way to the front.

Wilt took over second place after nine laps with Haas and Montieth getting by Rahmer a lap later.

Montieth took third place from Haas on lap 15 as all top four cars ran under a blanket.

Montieth then disposed of Wilt on the 18th lap for second place with a slider in turn three and then made the same move to take the lead from McIntyre a lap later.

The lead was quick-lived as Montieth brushed the wall and immediately fell back to third place with McIntyre reclaiming the top spot.

But Montieth was not to be denied as he regrouped and two laps later retook the lead and raced to his seventh overall win this season.

“I gotta give 110 percent because my boys give 110 percent,” Montieth said of his hard working crew. “The last couple of weeks I’ve had to work seven days a week and have been barely getting here on time so to be able to get in this thing and be comfortable is the key. It’s all done in the garage and I’m just the glorified guy standing here.”

Wilt was able to fight his way around McIntyre with three laps to go to finish in the runner-up spot with 10th starting Danny Dietrich coming on strong to finish in the third spot.

McIntyre faded to fourth at the checkered flag ahead of Haas with Jim Siegel, Tyler Ross, Tim Glatfelter, Austin Hogue and Robbie Kendall completing the top 10 finishers.

Heats for the 28 410’s were won by McIntyre, Glatfelter and Haas, with Billy Dietrich winning the consolation.

Seventh-starting Matt Campbell picked up his fourth career win in the 20-lap 358 Sprint car feature.

Third-starting CJ Tracy set the pace through the first eight laps, before Campbell took the lead following a lap eight restart. Tracy regained the lead on the 13th lap, but, a flat tire on the restart, handed the lead back to Campbell, who ran unchallenged the final laps to pick-up his first win of the 2015 season.

Williams Grove Speedway Saturday Night News

Scott Dellinger, Gene Knaub and Jeff Haag Win Williams Grove Speedway Saturday Night Features

Mechanicsburg, PA May 31, 2015

Rain, often the enemy of dirt-track racing, became a positive factor Saturday night at Williams Grove Speedway. A shower prior to qualifying, while delaying the racing program’s start, turned the racing surface into a multiple-groove racing wonderland.

Davey Walsh led the way at the start of the 20-lap Blazer’s Body Shop Super Sportsman main. Kenny Edkins, Steve Fannasy, Rich Eichelberger, and Jay Fannasy gave chase. The event’s first caution arose during the third circuit when Scott Geesey came to a halt in turn two.

Walsh continued to lead with Edkins in close pursuit. Steve Fannasy, Eichelberger, Jay Fannasy, and ninth-place starter Scott Dellinger had a close fight for third. At the race’s midway point, Dellinger shot into fourth using a three-wide pass at the exit of turn two.

The second and final caution occurred on lap 12. Davey Walsh, Kenny Edkins, Scott Dellinger, and Steve Fannasy, following the restart, were in tight formation. With five-laps remaining Dellinger swept into second position. One lap later Dellinger used the low lane in turn four to become the new race leader.

Scott Dellinger, from Lewisberry, gained a comfortable lead. A battle raged for second between Walsh, Steve Fanansy and Kenny Edkins. Fannasy made a late push to capture second position. At the finish Scott Dellinger won his fourth career Saturday Night Series feature by 15 lengths over Steve Fannasy, Kenny Edkins, Davey Walsh, and Scott Geesey.

Following the feature there was a protest on Scott Dellinger’s engine. There was a check of the head on his engine and Dellinger’s car passed the inspection.

Preliminaries for the 24 entries went to Geesey, Steve Wilbur and Doug Dodson. Frankie Herr received the Sprint Aces Hard Charger award.

Sam Rial was on the pole for the launching of the 20-lap Credit Connection Auto Sales 358 Late Model feature. Ron Kline, Alan Sagi and Brad Shank occupied the next three positions. Eleventh-place starter Gene Knaub was fifth by the completion of the opening circuit. Two laps later Knaub, using an outside line, advanced into second.

A caution during the fourth lap erased Sam Rial’s five-length advantage. With the race underway, Knaub moved to the low side of the speedway. He pulled even with Rial on the back stretch. Gene Knaub remained on the low side in turns three and four, passing Rial exiting turn four.

Gene Knaub drove away from the field. Alan Sagi and Ron Kline fought for second with Sagi gaining the runner-up position. Knaub, from Dover, won his 45th career Saturday Night Series feature by a straightaway over Alan Sagi. Ron Kline was third, with Cam Zeigler in fourth and Les Hare crossed the line in fifth. Hare’s car did not make weight at the scale and he was dropped to the rear of the finishing cars. Scott Richwine finished in fifth.

Qualifying for the 21 cars went to Sagi, Hare and Wes Alleman. Travis Mease was the winner of the Artwerks Hard Charger award.

Chris Heller advanced from his sixth-starting positon into the lead on the opening circuit of the 15-lap Aquafun Pools Street Stock feature. Jasen Geesaman, driving Steven Dove’s car, was second with Kevin Sigler in third. Jeff Haag proceeded from 11th into fourth. A caution in the second lap for a spinning Geesaman slowed the field.

Jeff Haag used the restart to charge into second. One lap later Haag captured first with a back stretch pass of Chris Heller.

Jeff Haag settled into a comfortable lead. Kevin Sigler, Dalton Frye, Craig Morgan, and Chris Heller were in a close contest for second. Jasen Geesaman rallied from the rear of the field to join the battle for second. In the final laps Geesaman’s car developed mechanical issues and dropped off the pace.

A final-lap caution gave Kevin Sigler one attempt to wrestle the lead from Haag. Haag, from Auburn, dominated the last circuit, crossing the finish line 10 lengths ahead of Sigler. The victory is Haag’s 10th career with the Saturday Night Series placing him in a tie for fourth on the all-time leading Street Stock feature winners’ list. Craig Morgan finished in third, with Dalton Frye in fourth and Chris Heller was fifth.

Heller and Geesaman won the heats for the 20 entries. Dalton Frye collected the Artwerks Hard Charger award.

Williams Grove Speedway’s Saturday Night Series returns to action this weekend with the School’s Out Special. The evening of racing, featuring the Blazer’s Body Shop Super Sportsman, Credit Connection Auto Sales 358 Late Models and Aqua Fun Pools, will honor the students of South Mountain and Monroe elementary schools that took part in the Williams Grove Speedway math challenge.

Satterlee Wins $4,000 Port Royal Grinestaff Memorial After Battle With Zeigler,

Nouse Wins Thrilling Sprint Car Feature

“This is the nicest facility I’ve been at in Pennsylvania!” ~ Kevin Nouse

5/31/15

Port Royal – Gregg Satterlee of Rochester Mills scored the $4,000 Late Model Speedweek Charlie Grinestaff Memorial at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night, loosing the lead and retaking it to record his second career oval win in the 40-lapper.

In the 25-lap 410 sprint car feature Lewisberry’s Kevin Nouse won an electrifying main event, holding off Greg Hodnett and Brent Marks for his first victory at the track since 2007.

With a stunning field of 47 super late models on hand, Satterlee drew the pole for the start of the Late Model Speedweek event with Rick Eckert lining up alongside.

But Eckert fell backwards when action began as Mason Zeigler drove into second spot and began pursuing the leader.

Satterlee was cruising the high line around the track with Zeigler challenging on the low side as they entered the backmarkers on the 14th tour.

Zeigler was strong on the bottom and amid heavy and stacked lapped traffic, he was able to muscle by Satterlee for the lead as the pair raced toward the stripe to complete lap 16.

Satterlee regrouped and never fell off the pace after getting passed and instead turned the wick up a notch to drive higher around the speedway and use a blast of momentum off of the fourth turn cushion to draw up on Zeigler and retake command with 19 laps recorded.

Zeigler stayed within striking distance for the ensuing laps and briefly drove back into the lead on the 24th tour only to see a turn two swoop around the cushion by Satterlee allow him to retake the point.

The races only caution flag unfurled with 14 laps to go when a charging Dylan Yoder dropped out of a challenging top five.

Eckert pounced on the restart and drove into second and then took a few stabs at Satterlee for the win only to see his deficit at the finish stand at 1.100 seconds.

Zeigler held on for third followed by Jeff Rine and Kyle Hardy.

Sixth through 10th went to Mitch Hack, Kenny Pettyjohn, Bryan Bernheisel, Jason Covert and Gary Stuhler.

Heats for the stellar field fell to Eckert, Zeigler, Satterlee and Hardy with twin B Mains going to Andy Haus and Matt Parks.

Rine set overall fast time with a lap of 18.762 seconds.

Joey Hershey led only the first lap of the 410 sprint main before fourth starter Kevin Nouse took the lead to begin his jaunt for the win.

Logan Wagner motored into second with five laps away and began his track-down of Nouse while 11th starter Brent Marks was thrilling the crowd with his brazen moves through the pack.

Marks went three wide in the second corner to get around Greg Hodnett in the early stages and just knifed his way through the front of the field, drawing to their inside and outside at will to zoom into third on the seventh circuit.

The leaders entered the rear of the field on the eighth lap as they skated around the thinning topside cushion with Marks pulling a slide job on Wagner for second with 11 laps down.

At the same time, ninth starter Hodnett began coming to the front and for the last 10 laps of the non-stop event the front four cars rim rode around the oval, flirting with the outside wall, all within the total distance of only one turn.

Hodnett began dropping off the cushion for short stints with seven laps to go in an effort to gain ground at the front and he got by Wagner for third before using the same high-speed tactic to secure second on just the final tour.

He then tracked down Nouse by the finish to come up just .446 seconds shy of his third win of the year at Port Royal.

Nouse screamed for joy in victory lane after recently becoming a regular at the track aboard the Will Rose-owned No. 21A machine.

“This is the nicest facility I’ve been at in Pennsylvania right now.” Nouse commented of the revived and refurbished historic oval.

He said he never dreamed he’d win this early with the team.

Brent Marks finished a happy third followed by Wagner and Dylan Cisney.

Sixth through 10th went to Hershey, Lucas Wolfe, Dave Ely, Davey Sammons and Ryan Taylor.

Heats went to Dave Hahn, Hodnett and Sammons.

Pete Leister wired the field for the 15-lap xtreme stock feature victory.

Jason Zook rode home second followed by Deron Henry, Curtis Lawson and Craig Imes.

Hodnett Scores Exciting Williams Grove Sprints Win, Dietz Gets 358s

5/29/15

Mechanicsburg –Greg Hodnett scored an exciting sprint car feature on Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway, stealing the lead from Cory Haas with just over a lap to go to record his second victory of the year at the track.

In other action, Chase Dietz became the fourth different winner in as many races this season in the 358 sprint division.

As the point leader, Hodnett of Spring Grove started 10th in the 410 sprint field as second starter Glenndon Forsythe paced the field.

Fourth starter Austin Hogue drove into second at the start with Cory Haas racing third before the races only caution flag unfurled on the seventh tour for a slowing Danny Dietrich.

Forsythe, Hogue, Haas, eighth starter Lucas Wolfe and Hodnett set the top five for the restart.

Haas put Hogue back a spot when action resumed while Hodnett disposed of Wolfe.

And then on the 10th tour Forsythe’s motor began souring in the lead, allowing Haas to motor by for control with 13 away.

But by that time Hodnett was on the move and was directly behind Haas with 11th starter Brian Montieth having picked up the pace to take over third.

Moments after taking the lead, Haas found himself challenged by Hodnett with a move in the first corner but Haas jetted off of the cushion to maintain the pace with 11 laps to go.

Haas stepped it up a bit at that point and pulled out of striking distance for the next eight circuits or so before Hodnett again began striking for the lead with four laps to go.

Aboard the Heffner No. 27 sprinter, Hodnett dropped off of the cushion in the third and fourth turns to slice into Haas’ advantage while following him on the cushion through turns one and two.

But as Hodnett’s flexed his muscles low, a surging Wolfe, now back up to third, was able to close up on Hodnett to make it a three car race for the win with three laps to go.

Hodnett was finally able to make his third and fourth turn strategy work as the pair raced toward the white flag and although Haas tried to come back in the first corner, his time at the front was over.

Following Haas across the line was Wolfe, Montieth and Hogue.

Sixth through 10th went to Alan Krimes, Frankie Herr, Lance Dewease, Tim Glatfelter and Rick Lafferty.

Heats went to Montieth and Hodnett.

Third starter Ryan Kissinger drove into the lead, around Jordan Givler and Todd Reed, on the first lap of the 20-lap 385 sprint feature.

The race was red flagged with three laps completed when Amy Ott jumped the fourth turn cushion and turned over.

The restart saw Chase Dietz racing in third after starting eighth.

With five down Dietz was up to second but Kissinger proved to be a formidable foe on the cushion, holding off Dietz’s advances until after the halfway point.

Dietz was finally able to make a low move in the first corner work with seven laps to go before cruising uncontested to his second career victory at the oval.

Adrian Shaffer motored into second with four laps to go but failed to challenge for the win.

Doug Hammaker rode home third followed by Kevin Nouse and Matt Campbell.

Sixth through 10th went to Kissinger, Todd Reed, Chandler Leiby, John Braim and Matt Findley.

Heats went to Dietz, Shaffer and Nouse.

Friday May 29, 2015 Trail-Way Speedway Hanover, PA

UPCOMING EVENTS:

Fri., June 5, 2015 – 358 Sprints, Limited Stocks, Classic Cars, Mason Dixon 270cc Micro Sprints (Little D’s Bucket List Race - $800 to win) (Gates open at 5:30 p.m., Heats at 7:45 p.m.) Sat., June 6, 2015 – A.M.A. Motorcycle Short Track (4th Annual Armin Hostetter Classic) (Gates open at 3:00 p.m., Heats at 6:00 p.m.)

McCLELLAND SCORES 44TH CAREER WIN IN TRAIL-WAY 358’S; EARNST HOLDS OFF TRANSEAU IN CENTRAL PA LEGENDS; FURMAN CLAIMS 20TH OF CAREER IN STREET STOCKS; MATT CHRONISTER TAKES THIRD WIN OF THE YEAR IN LIMITED STOCKS

HANOVER, PA (5/29/2015) –Two all-time winners put another notch in their belts at Trail-Way Speedway Friday night.

For one of them, it wasn’t the way he wanted to do it.

“We sure didn’t end that one in a good way,” said Brad McClelland after claiming his 44th career win in the 25-lap “358” sprint car feature.

For much of the race, polesitter Seth Kearchner looked to be on his way to his second career win on his 34th birthday. He and McClelland ran first and second the first 22 laps until the two made contact while racing through turns three and four of lap 23. In the midst of a McClelland slider in an effort to take the lead, the two leaders made contact, with Kearchner slamming into the outside wall and rolling onto his side. McClelland never stopped and assumed the lead for the restart. Kearchner was uninjured, and even took a moment to drop to the ground, and to the delight of the fans, make some dirt “angels” in the infield on the way back to the pits.

“Actually, Seth was running away from me,” said McClelland, “But when we cleared lapped traffic, he started to loosen up a little bit. I don’t know if I shocked him or not, but he’s a great guy and deserves a win here.”

McClelland led the final three laps to cross 1.18 seconds ahead of fifth-starting Dwight Leppo, with Cody Fletcher, Tyler Reinhardt, and hard charger Isaac Sneeringer completing the top five.

Qualifiers for the 12 “358” sprinters were won by David Holbrook and Zach Euculano, who finished sixth in the feature.

Chad Earnst raced to his second Trail-Way win and fourth overall win of the year in the 20-lap Central PA Legends feature. Earnst started second, followed polesitter Mason Chaney for the first lap, assumed the lead when Chaney and Houdeshell got together in turns one and two of lap two, led the next two laps, yielded to Travis McClelland on lap four, and then assumed the race lead on lap 10 when McClelland came to a stop on a restart.

Despite an ignition switch problem, Earnst was able to hold off the repeated challenges of Chris Transeau over the second half of the race to cross less than a carlength in front at the end.

Transeau, Justin Mitchell, Houdeshell (who came from the back), and Bill Diehl completed the top five.

Heats for the 17 Legends were won by Diehl and Transeau.

Points leader Dan Furman scored the 20th win of his Trail-Way career in the 20-lap street stock feature. Furman caught both Jeremy Stremmel and leader Mike Goodwin to go from third to first on lap 13. He led the rest of the way for his second win of the year.

Goodwin held off Stremmel for second, with Eric Johnson and Dalton Myers rounding out the top five.

Heats for the nine street stocks were won by Goodwin and David Johnson.

Matt Chronister has only finished four races in 2015, but Friday night Chronister scored his third win of the year after starting fifth and catching brother Jason Chronister on lap 13. Shortly thereafter, Jason dropped to the infield, handing second over to Shane Miller, who finished 1.78 seconds behind the winner. Last week’s winner Sarah Redmond, Julio Perez, and points leader Kenny Startzman completed the top five.

Qualifiers for the 18 limited stocks were won by the Chronisters.

Next Friday, June 5th, Trail-Way swings back into action with the 358 Sprints, Limited Stocks, Classic Cars and the Mason Dixon 270cc Micro Sprints in an $800-to-win “Little D’s Bucket List Race.” Gates open at 5:30 p.m. with heats beginning at 7:45 p.m.

The following night, Saturday June 6th, Trail-Way hosts A.M.A. Motorcycle Short Track racing with the “Fourth Annual Armin Hostetter Classic.” Gates open at 3:00 p.m. and heats begin at 6:00 p.m.

AMSOIL USAC NON-WING SPRINTS & MACH 1 360/358 SPRINTS PREP FOR DOUBLE HEADER 4 FEATURE PROGRAM ON WEDNESDAY NIGHT, JUNE 3 AT LINCOLN SPEEDWAY, TIME TRIALS AT 7 PM

Abbottstown, PA . . . . . .. The second round of the Eastern Storm invades the Pigeon Hills on Wednesday, June 3 at 7:00 PM with the AMSOIL USAC National Sprint Car Series and the Mach 1 Chassis 360/358 Sprint Cars at the Lincoln Speedway. A big and exciting night of competition is planned with a full show for both the USAC and 360/358 MACH 1 Sprints plus the make-up features from the 2014 rain out. Gates will open at 5 PM.

Heading into the event, all eyes are on “The People’s Champ” Dave Darland as he chases his 100th USAC victory in the three national series, putting him in the history books with the likes of A.J. Foyt, Rich Vogler and Mel Kenyon as the only drivers to reach the coveted USAC 100 career win mark.

Darland, of Kokomo, IN -- currently sits third in the Series points standing behind Robert Ballou (Rocklin, CA) and Chase Stockon (Elizabethtown, IN) and holds two AMSOIL USAC National Sprint Car victories this season.

Prior to last year’s postponement Darland was awarded the fast qualifier award with a time of 15.174 – a new track record. An ultra-fast racing surface led to a lot of wheel standing down the Lincoln Speedway straight-a-ways and to the top-9 cars besting the previous Lincoln Speedway USAC track record.

A spectacular show is expected with the USAC wingless Sprints running a complete show plus a 25-lap make-up feature. The line-up for the make-up feature will be determined by inverting all cars on the lead lap from the first USAC feature of the night. This should guarantee plenty of passing as the top USAC stars make a second charge to the front of the pack. Nationally ranked drivers Jon Stanbrough, Kevin Thomas Jr., Tracy Hines, CJ Leary and 2014 Eastern Storm Champion, Brady Bacon will all be in attendance. While regional stars Brent Marks, Joe Biasi, Trevor Kobylarz, Brian Allman and Michael Hamer will all be searching for the top prize.

Rounding out the event will be a complete show for the Mach 1 Chassis 360/358 Winged Sprint Cars plus a 25-lap make-up feature and a postponed B-Main from 2014.

Seven-time USAC National Champion, Levi Jones was the winner both times the Eastern Storm invaded the Lincoln Speedway in 2010 and 2011.

General Admission ticket pricing for Wednesday, June 3 is $25 for Adults, Students 12-17: $20, Children 6-11 are $10 and Kids 5 & under are FREE! Pit Admission pricing is $30.

HODNETT WIRES FIELD FOR $5,000 SPRINT CAR TILLEY CLASSIC VICTORY GEESEY & THOMPSON SCORE SPORTSMAN & 305 SPRINT WINS

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Greg Hodnett of Spring Grove scored a flag-to-flag victory in Sunday night’s 30-lap Ray Tilley Classic for 410 sprint cars at Selinsgrove Speedway by half of a second over 2013 race winner Brent Marks of Myerstown.

The $5,000 victory was Hodnett’s sixth win in central Pennsylvania and seventh overall this season driving the Heffner Enterprises/Lelands.com No. 27. It marked Hodnett’s 16th career victory at the speedway.

Members of Ray Tilley’s family were on hand to present Hodnett with a custom crystal cup trophy to commemorate the win in the tribute race, which was run to honor the memory of the late Hall of Famer who clinched four sprint car championships and recorded 69 victories at the track.

Lucas Wolfe of Mechanicsburg was the Fast Tees Fast Qualifier with a lap time of 16.907.

Scott Geesey of Dillsburg won his first super sportsman race at Selinsgrove Speedway in the division’s 20-lap feature, while Reese Thompson of Petersburg drove to his first-ever victory at the track in the 20-lap 305 sprint car feature.

Selinsgrove Speedway is back in action this Saturday, May 30, with a four division show of 360 sprint cars, super late models, pro stocks, and roadrunners at 7 p.m. The pro stocks will compete in the annual $1,000-to-win Pro Stock 20 championship race. Track gates will open at 5 p.m.

At the start of the Tilley Classic, Greg Hodnett stormed into the lead from his outside front row starting position and led polesitter Aaron Ott for most of the event. By lap five, Hodnett opened a comfortable lead over Ott, sixth-place starter Brock Zearfoss, 10th-place starter Brent Marks, and fourth-place starter Lucas Wolfe.

At the halfway point, Hodnett had stretched his lead to a straightaway over Ott. On the same lap, 14th-place starter Chase Dietz tagged the third turn wall and rolled to a stop in turn four, bringing out the race’s first caution flag.

When the race resumed, Hodnett completed lap 16 before the caution flag unfurled again when Zearfoss hit the second turn wall after his car reportedly had a rear axle break. On the restart, Marks moved into the second position as fifth-place starter TJ Stutts began to show a lot of speed and advanced to third.

The final caution flag waved on lap 22 for debris, setting up an eight-lap chase to the checkered flag. In the closing laps, Marks reeled in Hodnett to put in a bid for the lead but came up just half of a second short at the checkered flag. Hodnett was victorious over Marks, Stutts, Wolfe, and Ott.

In the super sportsman feature, second-place starter Chad Trout led the field to the green flag with third-place starter Paul Miller in pursuit. The race was slowed on lap seven when Kenny Edkin’s car rolled to a stop on the backstretch.

On the lap eight restart, Trout continued to set the pace with Miller and seventh-place starter Scott Geesey in close pursuit. On another restart, Geesey advanced to the second spot and began to pressure Trout for the lead.

Racing down the backstretch, Miller’s car went up in smoke on the 14th lap and brought out the race’s final caution flag. On the lap 15 restart, Geesey made the winning pass using a slider through the first and second turns. Geesey went on to take the checkered flag by two seconds over Trout, Scott Dellinger, Kevin Nouse, and Doug Dodson.

Reed Thompson started on the pole in the 305 sprint car feature and was chased by third-place starter Jordan Thomas for all 20 laps. Lap after lap, Thomas raced in Thompson’s shadow but never got the opportunity to make a pass for the lead. At the checkered flag, Thompson was victorious by just .92 of a second over Thomas, Bill Jones, Stephanie Stevens, and Erin Statler.

Williams Grove Speedway Saturday Night News

Family Entertainment At Family Prices

Rich Eichelberger, Gene Knaub and Greg Diehl Win Williams Grove Speedway Saturday Features

Mechanicsburg, PA May 24, 2015

Rich Eichelberger broke a string of mechanical issues by winning the Williams Grove Speedway Saturday Night Series Blazer’s Body Shop Super Sportsman feature. His $1,400 victory came in the 25-lap Bill Heckert Memorial championship.

Rich Eichelberger began the event on the outside of the front row. Cautions on laps one and two slowed the event’s pace. On the third lap contact with another car sent Scott Geesey’s machine, Geesey winner of the first two shows, into the third turn fencing. The contact eliminated Geesey from the race.

Rich Eichelberger, from York Springs, continued setting a fast pace. Kenny Edkins and Russ Mitten had a close fight for second. Mitten took control of second during the seventh circuit.

The race came to a halt in the 11th lap when Stan Wanner’s machine flipped in turn three. Wanner walked away from his spill.

Rich Eichelberger, following the restart, gained an eight-length lead over Russ Mitten. A second red flag occurred during the 15th circuit when oil from an expired engine in Mike Enders’ entry covered a wide area of racing surface.

Eichelberger continued his domination of the show. The battle was for third with Jay Fannasy, Doug Dodson and Frankie Herr in close battle. Rich Eichelberger won his 10th career Saturday Night Series feature by 50 yards over Russ Mitten. Jay Fannasy edged out Doug Dodson for fourth with Frankie Herr in fifth.

Heat wins for the 32 entries went to Scott Dellinger, Geesey, Enders, and Herr. Tony Jackson won the consolation. Steve Wilbur received the Sprint Aces Hard Charger award. The Hard Luck award went to Mike Enders.

Bernie Beard led the opening circuit of the 20-lap Credit Connection Auto Sales 358 Late Model feature. Pat Beard held second position with Sam Gallagher in third. Gene Knaub, the seventh-place starter, was in fourth.

Following a lap two restart, Knaub was in third behind Bernie Beard and Pat Beard. Gene Knaub swept by Pat Beard during the fifth lap. One lap later Knaub challenged leader Bernie Beard. The lead duo battled side-by-side for two laps before Knaub settled into second.

Gene Knaub, in the ninth circuit, used the low lane to pull even with Bernie Beard. After a one-lap duel, Knaub gained first position at the exit of the second turn.

Knaub’s comfortable lead disappeared on the final lap due to a red flag for a Cam Zeigler crash. Zeigler’s car crashed heavily into the back stretch fencing. Zeigler walked away from the incident.

Gene Knaub, from Dover, dominated the final lap, winning by 12 lengths over Bernie Beard. Knaub is the all-time leading Saturday Night Series feature winner and this is his 44th career triumph. Pat Beard was third with Ron Kline in fourth and Billy Wampler was fifth. Kline and Travis Mease won the preliminaries for the 20 cars. The Artwerks Hard Charger award went to Shaun Jones.

Eric Tripp shot into the lead at the start of the 15-lap Aquafun Pools Street Stock main. Steven Dove was second with Bob Scott in third. Greg Diehl advanced from his fifth-starting position into fourth.

Tripp, Dove and Diehl had a close fight for the lead. In the fifth pass of the oval the lead trio were door-to-door at the exit of turn two. There was contact resulting in a broken wheel on Dove’s machine. Chris Derr’s car made hard contact with Dove’s crippled machine triggering a large back stretch crash. Dove’s car rolled over in the melee. All drivers walked away from the wreck.

Eric Tripp, following the restart, continued to lead with Greg Diehl in second. One lap later Diehl went to the bottom of turns three and four to wrestle the lead from Tripp.

Diehl, from New Cumberland, set sail and had a large lead. Jason Geesaman advanced into second with two-time feature winner Jeff Haag in third. Geesaman and Haag narrowed the gap in the final laps. Greg Diehl won his 10th Saturday Night Series career feature by 15 lengths over Jason Geesaman, Jeff Haag, Craig Morgan, and Bob Scott.

Mike Buckley, Tripp and Diehl won the qualifiers for the 28 entries. The Artwerks Hard Charger award went to Doug Bennett.

KRIMES SURVIVES WILD LINCOLN HILLY RIFE MEMORIAL TO CLAIM $5,000 TOP PRIZE;

Cole Young scores first career sprint car win in 358’s; Bill Diehl comes from 12th to win Central PA Legends feature

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 5/23/2015 – Just another night of professional auto racing at the fabulous Lincoln Speedway.

Krimes capitalized on a late-race spin by leader Danny Dietrich to score his first win of the season in the 30-lap Hilly Rife Memorial on Saturday.

“I don’t know what to say,” said Krimes upon exiting the family-owned Kimmet Construction/Wayne Carini #87 in victory lane after scoring his first win of the season and claiming the $5,000 top prize, “I think Danny had it won there. He got around us early on and we were racing pretty hard. He got in front of us and don’t think I had anything for him. You don’t see that (Dietrich’s spin) very often. He and the 21 have been far and away the two fastest cars, and I think Brian was behind me…those two guys have been real fast and we just haven’t been able to keep up with them. But we were pretty good tonight.”

Krimes restarted ninth (up two spots) for a complete restart following a spectacular opening lap crash that saw the sprinters of fourth-starting Brandon Rahmer and 20th-starting Robbie Kendall flip in turn one. Also involved were Glenndon Forsythe and Gerard McIntyre, Jr. All four drivers were uninjured, but they were all done for the night.

Krimes moved into the top five on an 11th lap restart following a spin by fourth-place Matt Boland in turn four.

He caught Scott Fisher for fourth on lap 14, and was still running there when Dietrich spun and collected third-place Adam Wilt in turn four of lap 27. Glatfelter, who was running second, and Krimes assumed first and second, and Krimes wasted no time driving around Glatfelter for the lead in the first two turns of the restart.

“The track was a little wider tonight, and that played into our hand a little bit. Once I saw Danny spin out and collect Adam, I knew we were second at the time. I had about three more inches on my wing, so I pulled it the whole way back and just held on from there.”

Krimes’ final margin of victory was 1.53 seconds over Glatfelter, with 13th-starting Brian Montieth, Niki Young, and 17th-starting Tyler Ross completing the top five. Sixth through tenth were 23rd-starting Jim Siegel, Freddie Rahmer (who came from the rear after a mid-race spin), Steve Owings, 24th-starting Chase Dietz, and Cory Haas.

Heats for the 31 410 sprinters were won by Haas, Owings, and Young, with Tim Wagaman winning the consolation.

Cole Young, who just celebrated his 15th birthday in April, scored his first career sprint car win in the 20-lap “358” sprint car feature.

Young started on the outside of the front row, led the first two laps of the event, then yielded to sixth-starting Matt Campbell. Campbell quickly opened up a three second lead before being collected in a three-car crash at the back of the field in turn two of lap eight. Young assumed the lead for the restart, and dominated the rest of the way, crossing 2.10 seconds in front of Cody Fletcher, who registered his career best finish at Lincoln by holding off two-time track champ Jeff Rohrbaugh in the process. Fourth and fifth were Chandler Leiby and Matt Findley.

Lincoln Speedway and Central PA point series leader Doug Hammaker came from the back to finish tenth after a six-car crash on the front stretch of lap nine.

Heats for the 33 358 Sprinters were won by Brie Hershey, Leiby, Chris Arnold, and Hammaker, with Phil Walter winning the consolation.

Craley’s Bill Diehl drew the ‘12’ pill for the inversion and then promptly raced to the win in the 15-lap Central PA Legends feature. He took the lead from Joe Ehrisman on lap nine and held off a determined Bob Stough over the final five laps.

Chris Spidle, Ehrisman, and Shane Glatfelter completed the top five.

Jacob Feltch was transported to a nearby hospital after complaining of back pain following a hard crash on lap nine of the feature.

Heats for the 26 Legends were won by Diehl, Shane Glatfelter, and Chad Glatfelter.

Next Saturday night, May 30th, at 7:30 PM it will be APPLE AUTOMOTIVE NIGHT featuring the 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints, and All‐American Outlaws. Gates will open at 5:30 PM.

Brock Zearfoss and Davey Sammons shared the front row for the start of the 410 sprint main with Zearfoss taking the lead at the start.

Third starter Buckwalter drove around Sammons and into second on the second tour and was stalking Zearfoss with Aaron Ott racing third when the races first caution unfurled with five laps completed.

Buckwalter challenged Zearfoss on the restart but the Jonestown driver was able to stay ahead for a little while longer.

Buckwalter was strong however and as the pair raced toward the completion of the seventh tour, he muscled his No. 17B to Zearfoss’ inside in the fourth corner to take control.

Eighth starter Greg Hodnett motored into fourth on the same lap as the lead change took place but the field was strung out around the track by that point.

With 10 laps down, 11th starter Brent Marks broke into the top five however he would not be a factor.

Another caution flag with nine laps to go regrouped the field with numerous lapped cars separating the front runners and Buckwalter rocketed away on the restart.

However Ott and Hodnett began biting into the lead with five laps to go and during the final pair of laps they drew to within the same set of turns but ran out of time.

Buckwalter took the victory by 1.023 seconds over Ott, Hodnett, Zearfoss and Marks.

Sixth through 10th went to Dylan Cisney, Lucas Wolfe, Doug Esh, Ryan Taylor and TJ Stutts.

Heats for the 28-car field went to Hodnett, Buckwalter and Ott with Rick Lafferty taking the consolation

Wolfe set fast time in group time trials with a lap of 15.773 seconds.

Jim Yoder rode his pole starting position all the way to the finish in a raced that was riddled with caution flags, taking place on laps three, six, 12 and 18.

Several heavy hitters fell out of contention during the event including Dylan Yoder, Tim Wilson and Dan Stone.

Wilson was running a challenging fourth, trying to take third from Trent Brenneman when the pair connected due to close quarters as they raced hard into the third corner for the spot.

Yoder sliced a tire and fell out of a surging top eight position and Stone likewise withdrew while racing fifth and moving forward.

With six laps to go in the 25-lapper, Greg Satterlee of Rochester Mills began blasting toward the front after starting 12th.

He circled the top of the track with lightning speed and took second from Justin Kann with two laps to go before rapidly closing on leader Yoder.

However the clock was not Saterlee’s friend as he ran out of time to produce a win, instead crossing the line just .958 seconds behind and closing at the finish.

Kann was third followed by Andy Haus and Derrick Casner.

After starting 22nd, Mike Lupfer clawed his way to the front to finish sixth followed by Nick Dickson, Mitch Hack, Coleby Frye and Dave Zona.

Heats went to Jim Yoder, Wilson and Dickson with Zona scoring the consolation for the 30 cars in action.

Matt Parks set quick time with a lap of 18.478 but failed to make the feature event.

Tyler Reeser led the entire way in the 25 lap main for the 305 sprints in another race that was hampered by cautions and a red flag on the 11th lap.

A six-car melee on the frontstretch brought out the red however there were no injuries.

Erin Statler gave up the second spot to Jeff Miller on the fourth lap but Miller ended up crashing out of the event when he plowed into a spun car on the ninth circuit.

Statler mounted a challenge on Reeser for the lead after the red flag but after that Reeser stretched it out to the checkers.

Nathan Gramley, Scott Ellerman and Zach Newlin rounded out the top five followed by Darren Miller, Ryan Lynn, Jon Haegele, Bill Jones Jr. and Tom Worrick.

Heats went to Miller, Haegele and Statler.

Montieth Wins Williams Grove Battle Of High Groove Titans For Third In Four

Reeser takes PASS 305s

5/22/15

Mechanicsburg – Brian Montieth and Danny Dietrich staged a battle of the high groove titans on Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway in the 25-lap sprint car feature with Montieth coming out on top.

For the Phoenixville flyer, it was his third win in four attempts at the track.

In the 20-lap 305 sprint main, Tyler Reeser took the lead, lost it and then reclaimed it late to pick up the victory.

Dietrich and Montieth started on the front row of the 410 sprint main with Dietrich leading the field down to the line before Montieth took control in the first corner.

Dietrich struggled to keep pace with Montieth after he took the lead as the pair entered the backmarkers on the sixth circuit.

But as traffic got heavier and heavier Dietrich was able to zone in on the leader and in fact drew onto this tail on a few occasions before finally taking a full blown stab for the win on the 19th lap with a low swoop into the first turn.

But Montieth one-upped his challenger and rode his momentum to reclaim control as the pair exited the second turn.

It took Dietrich several laps to make up the ground he had lost in the attempt but as the two to go sign appeared he was again ready to go for the checkers.

Only this time it was in the third and fourth turns that he pulled the trigger to slide up in front of Montieth for control as the duo raced to the white flag.

The pair then raced back to the stripe with Dietrich scored the leader as Montieth drew back to Dietrich’s inside.

And then as they raced into the first turn, Montieth turned the tables when Dietrich missed his entry, reclaiming the lead for good as they burst onto the backstretch for the $4,000 payday.

However Dietrich kept Montieth honest to the finish, dogging him across the line, finishing second by just .169 seconds.

Lucas Wolfe was third followed by Greg Hodnett and Aaron Ott.

Sixth through 10th went to Don Kreitz Jr., Stevie Smith, Alan Krimes, Steve Buckwalter and Lance Dewease.

Heats went to Hodnett, Buckwalter and Brock Zearfoss with Ryan Wilson taking the consolation.

Wolfe set quick time with a lap of 16.932 seconds.

James Pryde led on the first lap of the 305 sprint main before he lost the handle in the first corner as Tyler Reeser went for the lead.

After spinning out, Reeser assumed command and set the pace until after the halfway point when 10th starter Darren Miller came into the picture.

Miller made a two car, second turn pass on the 12th lap to take control, drving by Zach Newlin and Reeser to get command.

Miller looked invinceable after getting the lead but with a few laps to go he seemed to pick up a push as his car entered the first corner, allowing Reeser to drive back around to the victory.

Newlin rode home second with Steve Storrie finishing third followed by Ken Duke and a fading Miller.

Sixth through 10th went to Tom Worrick, Stephanie Stevens, Scott Ellerman, Colby Dice and John Martin.

Heats went to Pryde, Reeser and Newlin.

Schatz Beats Hodnett In Battle Of Circuit Point Leaders For WoO Williams Grove Victory

5/15/15

Mechanicsburg – The World of Outlaws and the Williams Grove Speedway point leaders raced it out on Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway with Donny Schatz getting the upper hand over Greg Hodnett to take the victory in the 25-lap sprint car feature worth $8,000.

Schatz, the current outlaws point leader, started on the pole flanked by Hodnett, the current Williams Grove point leader.

Hodnett of Spring Grove earned the spot to start the feature after putting on an eye-opening display in the dash, driving from seventh to second in a lap and a half to secure the outside of the front row for the main.

And when the green flag dropped in the feature event it was indeed Hodnett who took the lead rather handily over Schatz although the outlaws winningest driver this season never allowed Hodnett to get out of reach.

The leaders entered traffic on the eighth tour and again Schatz stuck with Hodnett as he worked the backmarkers.

The pair crossed the line virtually nose to tail on the 11th circuit before Hodnett crept away just a bit but a few laps later and Schatz was again poised to pounce.

They were nose to tail again at the stripe as lap 17 was scored and Hodnett broke low into the first corner.

Schatz stuck his No. 15 to the top to roll the corner and that proved to be Hodnett’s undoing as the North Dakota driver drew to Hodnett’s outside as the pair shot onto the backstretch.

And by the time the pair reached the backstretch bridge Schatz surged into control and it was a lead he would never relinquish during the remaining seven tours.

Instead Schatz pulled away to his 19th career victory at the oval over Hodnett by 1.542 seconds with fifth starter Brian Montieth finishing third after taking the spot from Aaron Ott with five laps to go.

Ott rode home fourth followed by Paul McMahan.

Sixth through 10th went to Stevie Smith, Dave Blaney, Joey Saldana, Shane Stewart and Daryn Pittman.

“Greg was setting a pretty good pace. He got a good start on us,” Schatz said.

“You need traffic to be able to get by guys. He was moving all over the place and we were passing some really good cars there.”

Hodnett said, “We were just a tick off all night and it showed in traffic. Donny’s the best in the world for a reason.”

Heats for the 40-car field went to Hodnett, McMahan, Stevie Smith and Saldana with Schatz winning the dash.

Sheldon Haudenschild put on a good drive to win the B Main.

Aaron Ott set quick time with a lap of 16.611 seconds.

May 15, 2015 Feature Finishes:

POSSE SWEEP IS OH SO SWEET AT LINCOLN SPEEDWAY;

Greg Hodnett leads PA Posse Charge to take home $10,000 win

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 5/13/2015 – Greg Hodnett almost made it look easy.

Hodnett set fast time over the 47-car field in time trials. Finished second in his heat. Led all six laps of the Dash to start on the pole of the 35-lap Gettysburg Clash. And then finished off his night by leading all 35-laps of the highly anticipated rematch against the World of Outlaws to pick up his 14th career Outlaw win and the $10,000 winners check that went with it.

“I’ve struggled here (Lincoln Speedway), said Hodnett in victory lane. “Getting a great draw in qualifying, taking advantage of it, and obviously getting a great draw in the Dash was huge. We were fortunate enough to take advantage of it and pull out a win.”

As proud as the PA Posse was to get the win against the Outlaws, it didn’t stop there. Outside frontrow starter Stevie Smith and third-starting Ryan Smith gave the Posse faithful even more bragging rights as they finished second and third respectively to give the PA Posse a podium sweep when the dust settled after 35 laps.

Fourth-starting Brad Sweet and seventh-starting Shane Stewart finally got the Outlaws on the board with a fourth and fifth place finish.

Completing the top-10 were Lucas Wolfe, defending Lincoln Speedway Champion Alan Krimes came from 13th to finish 7th, eighth-starting Brent Marks finished eighth, Outlaw Kerry Madsen was ninth, and local favorite Danny Dietrich earned a hard fought 10th place finished after starting 19th.

In all, three of the top-five and six of the top-10 spots were filled by the PA Posse.

Defending six-time World of Outlaw Champion Donny Schatz needed a provisional starting spot after failing to qualify for the feature and earned Hard-Charger honors by finishing 15th after starting 25th.

Fast time in time trials over the 47-car field was set by Hodnett with a one-lap time of 12.817-seconds. Heats for the 410 sprinters were won by Kerry Madsen, Shane Stewart, Brad Sweet, and Brent Marks, with Lance Dewease winning the B-Main and Jason Sides winning the C-Main. Greg Hodnett won the Dash.

This Saturday night, May 16th, there will be no racing at Lincoln Speedway as the PA Posse travels to Williams Grove to take on the World of Outlaws.

Then next Saturday night, May 16th, Lincoln hosts the ANNUAL HILLY RIFE MEMORIAL for 410 Sprints, plus 358 Sprints and Central PA Legends.

World Of Outlaws Race At Williams Grove Friday & Saturday, May 15 & 16

5/10/15

Mechanicsburg – The World of Outlaws will invade Williams Grove Speedway this Friday and Saturday night, May 15 and 16, at 7:30 pm.

The invasion by the traveling band will be the first of three clashes between the outlaws and the Pennsylvania Posse this year.

On Friday night, the 25-lap sprint car winner will receive $8,000 while Saturday’s champion of a 30-lap feature will walk away with $12,000 plus another $5,000 for being crowned the 2015 Morgan Cup champion.

The Morgan Cup title is bestowed in honor of late speedway owner Morgan Hughes and the winner’s side of the title will take ownership of the sterling Morgan Cup for another season.

The trophy will be kept at either World of Outlaws headquarters in Concord, NC., or at the offices of Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg.

Three charities will receive gift baskets during the weekend including the Williams Grove portions of the 50/50 drawing on both nights.

Recipients of the oval’s donations will be The Bethesda Project, the Kiwanis of Dillsburg and the Pennsylvania State Police CampCadet.

The Bethesda Project is located in Philadelphia and provides shelter, housing and programs reaching out to chronically homeless men and women.

Kiwanis is a service organization that helps local communities by raising money for people in need, providing volunteers for fundraisers and more.

At Camp Cadet, youngsters learn about law enforcement and the judiciary system as taught by the State Police at the weeklong camp.

Last year’s May WoO shows at Williams Grove saw circuit regular Daryn Pittman sweep the two-day stand while an outlaw in the form of David Gravel scored the National Open.

However the Summer Nationals in July were scored by a pair of PA Posse pilots in the form of Greg Hodnett and Lance Dewease.

Hodnett currently leads the Williams Grove Speedway point standings and by most accounts is “outlaw fast” at this point in the season.

The World of Outlaws series will hit town with Donny Schatz leading Shane Stewart and Brad Sweet in circuit points.

Adult general admission for both outlaws shows is $30 with youth admitted both nights for just $15.

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

Scott Geesey, Dan Zechman and Jeff Haag Win Williams Grove Speedway Saturday Night Features

Mechanicsburg, PA, May 10, 2015

Dominating is the proper word describing Scott Geesey’s performance in the first two weeks of Williams Grove Speedway’s Saturday Night Series Blazer’s Body Shop Super Sportsman shows. The driver from Wellsville roared to the feature win on opening night. This week he returns and scores an easy victory.

Rich Eichelberger and Bobby Hockenberry paced the 25-car Super Sportsman field the opening circuit of their 20-lap main event. Scott Geesey, the sixth-place starter, was in third followed by Jay Fannasy and Mike Enders.

Following a second-lap restart, Rich Eichelberger gained a six-length advantage. Bobby Hockenberry, Scott Geesey and Jay Fannasy were in a close battle for second. In the seventh lap Geesey used slower traffic to wrestle second from Hockenberry.

At the race’s midway point leader Rich Eichelberger encountered heavy traffic allowing Scott Geesey to narrow the gap to two lengths. Two laps later Geesey went to the outside line in turns one and two to sweep by Eichelberger.

The second caution of the race came with five laps remaining. On the restart Rich Eichelberger’s second-place run came to an end when his car drifted to a stop in the fourth turn. After the restart Scott Geesey gained a comfortable lead. He won his 12th career Williams Grove Speedway Saturday Night Series Super Sportsman feature by a straightaway over Bobby Hockenberry, Jay Fannasy, Mike Enders, and Doug Dodson. Geesey’s victory places him second on the Saturday Night Series all-time feature winnner’s list.

Chad Criswell, Hockenberry and Geesey won the preliminary races for the 25 entries. Justin Foster received the Sprint Aces Hard Charger award.

Dan Zechman and Sam Gallagher started on the front row of the 20-lap Credit Connection Auto Sales 358 Late Model feature. Gallagher won the sprint into the first turn and led the first two laps with Zechman, Dave Lathsa, Sam Rial, and Al Cheney in pursuit.

The first of two cautions came at the completion of the second circuit. The duo of Gallagher and Zechman had an intense fight for the lead with both drivers taking the outside line. On the sixth lap Gallagher tried the lower line. One lap later Gallagher went to the bottom and Zechman made his successful pass on the outside.

The second and final caution came on lap 11. Through the final eight laps Dan Zechman and Sam Gallagher had a close competition for first while Sam Rial, Scott Richwine, Dave Latsha, and Billy Wampler were racing hard for third.

With two laps remaining Gallagher pulled even with Zechman on the back stretch. In turn four both cars slid sideways and the drivers gathered their machines. Dan Zechman exited the turn with a two-car length edge and held the advantage to the finish line. The Hanover driver won his second career Saturday Night Series feature ahead of Sam Gallagher, Sam Rial, Scott Richwine, and Billy Wampler.

Qualifying events for the 25-car field went to Wampler, Richwine and Rial. Shaun Jones won the Artwerks Hard Charger award.

Jeff Haag, the opening night feature winner, started on the pole in the 15-lap Aquafun Pools Street Stock main event. Haag led with Craig Morgan, Jason Geesaman, Doug Hoffman, and Kevin Sigler trailing. Geesaman advanced into second on the second lap.

The driver on the move was Mike Walls. The former Late Model driver started in 10th and rapidly progressed into third. Jeff Haag, Jason Geesaman and Mike Walls had an intense fight for the lead and several lengths to the rears was the pack of Craig Morgan, Doug Hoffman, Mike Buckley, Kevin Sigler, and Randy Zechman.

Haag and Geesaman were using the outside lane with Walls working the bottom. Walls edged his car ahead of Geesaman and pulled even with Haag. For three laps Walls would gain a slight lead in the turns but Haag had the momentum onto the straights. With three-laps remaining Walls’ car slipped in turn two allowing Geesaman to regain second.

Jeff Haag and Jason Geesaman raced within a car length through the final two circuits. Mike Walls caught the lead duo on the final pass of the oval. Jeff Hagg, from Mechanicsburg, won the thrilling race by a length over Jason Geeseman while Mike Walls was a length back in third. Craig Morgan was fourth and Doug Hoffman finished in fifth. Haag’s victory is his ninth with the Saturday Night Series tying him for fourth on the Street Stock all-time winner’s list.

Morgan and Haag won the heats for the 24 entries. Mike Walls received the Artwerks Hard Charger award.

The Williams Grove Speedway Saturday Night Series will not be in action next week. The series returns to the famed half-mile oval in two weeks featuring the Bill Heckert Memorial championship for the Blazer’s Body Shop Super Sportsman. Joining the Super Sportsman will be the Credit Connection Auto Sales 358 Late Models and Aquafun Pools Street Stocks. Racing begins at 7 PM.

TOMECEK, CAMPBELL, MITCH & FOWLER TAKE WINS IN FRONT OF PACKED HOUSE SATURAY NIGHT!

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Eric Tomecek of Abbottstown thrilled the huge crowd that was on hand Saturday at Selinsgrove Speedway for the Max Media Pack The Track Night with a convincing victory in the 25-lap 360 sprint car feature.

The $2,000 win in the Central Builders Supply Company No. 1W was Tomecek’s first since May 4, 2013, at the track. He became the third different winner in five races in 360 sprint car competition.

Steve Campbell of Danville made it two wins in a row in the 25-lap super late model feature. The victory was the 47th of Campbell’s career at the speedway.

Defending champion Brad Mitch of McClure won his first race of the season in the 15-lap pro stock feature, while John Fowler Jr. of Montandon became the first repeat roadrunner winner with a victory in the division’s 12-lap feature.

Selinsgrove Speedway will be back in action at 7 p.m. Saturday, May 17, with a $3,000-to-win 360 sprint car race sanctioned by the Empire Super Sprints (ESS) plus late models and pro stocks. Track gates will open at 5 p.m.

Fourth-place starter Cody Keller shot into the lead at the start of the sprint car feature and was chased by polesitter Mallie Shuster and third-place starter Michael Walter. On the third circuit, Walter moved into the second spot while eighth-place starter Mark Smith drove into third.

On lap four, the caution flag unfurled when Derek Steward crashed in turn one. For the lap five restart, Keller held off Smith, Walter, and sixth-place starter Colby Womer. The race was slowed again on lap seven when Jason Shultz slammed the second turn wall.

Smith drove around the outside of Keller for the lead in turn two on the lap eight restart. Another caution for a flat tire on TJ Stutts’ car regrouped the field. Racing back into turn one, Keller put in a bid to reclaim the lead, only to make contact with Smith’s car, which ended the three-time winner’s night. Keller was the pacesetter on the restart and was moving at a fast clip at the front of the pack until 11th-place starter Eric Tomecek became a threat.

Tomecek found lightning speed late in the race and drove by Keller in the second turn on the 16th circuit. From that point on, Tomecek blistered the speedway and went on to post a convincing 8.5-second margin of victory over Womer, fifth-place starter Derek Locke, Stutts, and Shuster. Keller dropped out of the race with mechanical issues with two laps remaining.

Second-place starter Tony Adams pulled into the lead at the start of the super late model feature. Adams was trailed by polesitter Danny Snyder for the first lap until fifth-place starter Jim Yoder took command of the field. Adams, Yoder, and fourth-place starter Chad Hollenbeck streaked away from the field early in the race.

On the seventh circuit, Yoder drove by Adams using the inside lane in turn three for the lead. A lap later, seventh-place starter Matt Cochran advanced to second. With 10 laps to race, eighth-place starter Steve Campbell surged his way to the front of the pack, passing Yoder on the 17th lap on the backstretch.

Campbell then opened up a lead late in the race and posted a five-second margin of victory over Yoder, Cochran, 15th-place starter Jeff Rine, and ninth-place starter Kenny Trevitz.

Polesitter Brad Mitch put his pro stock in front of the field at the drop of the green flag in the main event. A multi-car incident in turn three regrouped the field for a complete restart. When the race resumed, Mitch again darted into the lead.

For most of the race, second-place starter Dave Brouse Jr. kept Mitch in his sights, with sixth-place starter Adam Campbell racing in the third position. With two laps remaining, Campbell showed a lot of speed, passing Brouse for second and closing in on Mitch for the lead.

At the checkered flag, Mitch was victorious by one second over Campbell, Brouse, Nathan Long, and Matt Hornberger. Curtis Lawton, who crossed the line in the third position, was disqualified after failing a post-race inspection.

Fourth-place starter John Fowler Jr. powered into the lead at the start of the roadrunner feature and wired the field for his second win of the season. Fowler was closely chased by fifth-place starter Bob Bussy, who did a 360-degree spin in turn two early in the race and kept racing.

At the finish, Fowler was victorious by just .55 of a second over Bussey, Butch Shaffer, Ricky Buss, and Tom Underwood.

Port Royal Speedway

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

Hodnett And Parks Win Action-Packed Port Royal Features,

Irvin and Zook take econos and xtremes

5/9/15

Port Royal – Greg Hodnett became the third and final leader of the 25-lap 410 sprint car feature at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night to record his second oval win of the season worth $3,200 in what was an eventful feature.

In an action packed 22-lap super late model main Matt Parks of Three Springs emerged as the victor after a messy incident that netted him the top spot.

In the econo late model main point leader Eric Irvin of Petersburg scored his second win of the season in the division while Jason Zook scored the xtreme stock feature.

Brock Zearfoss and Dave Ely charged down the frontchute off of the front row when the green flag unfurled in the sprint car feature and by the time the pair got to the start finish line things were going awry.

Contact between the pair sent Zearfoss careening around in a ring and backwards in front of the field as the entire pack went scrambling and bolting into the first corner in an attempt to avoid what would be hard contact.

Zearfoss ended up sustaining relatively minor damage while the rest of the field wasn’t nearly as lucky.

A total of six cars were collected in the corner as the red flag flew with Tyler Bear, Trenton Schaeffer, Davey Sammons, Joey Hershey and Nate Snyder also involved.

Doug Esh restarted the race on the pole but it was Dave Ely who took control to lead the race with Esh following along with Hodnett and Brent Marks.

Ely would lead until the 11th tour when Esh finally powered around to take control after dogging Ely for numerous circuits.

Hodnett followed suit on the same lap and immediately began challenging the new leader.

But low or high, Esh’s car was working nearly to perfection and he repeatedly knocked back Hodnett’s advances using both sides of the speedway.

However with seven laps to go disaster struck Esh when he exploded a right rear tire as he raced down the front stretch, surrendering the point to Hodnett.

One lapped car separated Hodnett from Marks on the restart but Marks wasn’t able to muster any challenge as Hodnett instead powered to his 38th career victory at the historic oval.

And instead of Marks getting second, fifth starter Mike Wagner came on strong late in the race to blister by Marks on the inside to record the runner up finish.

Marks was third followed by point leader Lucas Wolfe and Dave Ely.

Sixth through 10th went to Steve Buckwalter, Kevin Nouse, Blane Heimbach, Kyle Reinhardt and Ryan Taylor.

Heats for the 26-car field went to Esh, Zearfoss and Ely with Taylor taking the consolation.

Local driver Trent Brenneman took control of the super late model feature at the start over third starter Matt Parks.

After winning the first three late model features of the season in a row, Mike Lupfer started fifth in the field and was working well to get himself up to third on the second lap.

And then on lap six Lupfer took second from Parks and immediately began gaining on the leader.

Lupfer cruised by Brenneman on the eighth lap with Parks following him into second.

And with Parks getting a huge run off of the fourth corner onto the frontstretch he was able to draw inside Lupfer as the pair raced into the first corner.

However Lupfer didn’t give an inch and when he turned the car to work into one the pair made hard and violent contact with Lupfer’s car careening head-on into the outside wall.

Parks never stopped and went on to assume command with veteran Gary Stuhler racing fifth for the restart.

Both Stuhler and last week’s winner Jason Schmidt were running well and Stuhler drove into third on the 17th lap with Schmidt working the outside lane behind him.

And then as the pair blasted onto the backchute on the 18th lap Schmidt drew to Stuhler’s outside and the pair made contact with Stuhler spinning backwards into the third turn before getting plowed by a surging Dylan Yoder who was taking a page out of Schmidt’s high line groove.

With both of those cars also out for the night, Parks went on to pick up the win over Mitch Hack, Schmidt, Brenneman and Bryan Bernheisel.

Sixth through 10th went to Tim Smith Jr., Brian Tavenner, Tim Wilson, Derrick Casner and Andy Haus.

Heats for the 29 cars in action went to Yoder, Parks and Hack.

Devin Hart started on the pole of the econo late model feature and held sway for the first 10 laps of the 18 lap main before giving up the point to point leader Eric Irvin.

Hart struggled late in the race and fell to third at the finish while Andrew Yoder was second.

Troy Miller and Tim Fedder completed the top five.

Heats went to Andrew Yoder and Shaun Miller.

Fourth starter Jason Zook drove into the lead of the 15-lap xtreme stock main at the start and was followed by Deron Henry.

But previous winner Jason Davis had designs on the victory and took over second on the fifth lap before pressuring for the win.

He fell short however with Pete Leister finishing third followed by Bill Powell and Henry.

DIETRICH PREPS FOR WORLD OF OUTLAWS, CATCHES MONTIETH FOR THRILLING LINCOLN WIN;

Halligan claims first career win in 358 sprints; Chad Earnst best of Central PA Legends

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 5/9/2015 – “Bring on the Outlaws next week!”

So exclaimed Danny Dietrich after claiming his first Lincoln win of the season in the 25-lap Prospect Metal and Used Auto Parts Night feature event at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

For the second straight week, Dietrich and points leader Brian Montieth thrilled the crowd with another wild ride through lapped traffic through the first 22 non-stop laps. But this time, it was Dietrich turning the tables on Montieth to score his 24th career Lincoln win.

Montieth started tenth and worked his way through the field to grab the lead from polesitter and race-long leader Steve Owings exiting turn two of lap 15. It looked like Montieth was en-route to his fourth win in as many races (counting Williams Grove the last two Fridays and Lincoln last Saturday), but Dietrich, who started 12th, reeled him in as the two raced through heavy lapped traffic with five laps to go.

At the start-finish line to complete lap 22, Dietrich pulled alongside the Premier Auto Works #21, with electronic scoring showing Dietrich with a .001-second lead. That’s when the event’s only caution came out for Cory Hass, who spun in turn two of lap 23.

“It didn’t really matter who was leading at the time,” said Dietrich, “I got really good through the middle down there and able to keep my drive off turn two. That’s where I made all my passes early because everyone is so fast around the top.”

On the final restart, Dietrich held off Montieth, crossing 1.19 seconds ahead at the checkered.

“We’re gonna try,” answered Dietrich when asked whether he and Montieth could beat the World of Outlaws when they invade Lincoln this coming Wednesday, “It’s been good to see the 48 or 21 sitting here...or anybody from this area. Right now, we’ve been so fast and consistent, the two of us. But I hope some of the other guys can get going because we’re going to need a little help I think.”

Owings hung on for third, with Niki Young and 11th-starting Lance Dewease completing the top five. Rounding out the top ten were Robbie Kendall, 22nd-starting Alan Krimes, Hunter Mackison, Austin Hogue, and 16th-starting Adam Wilt.

Heats for the 36 410 sprinters were won by Montieth, Kendall, Hogue, and Danny Dietrich, with Aaron Ott winning the consolation.

Jeff Halligan started on the pole and led every lap of the 20-lap 358 sprint car feature to score his first career sprint car win by 1.68 seconds over outside front row starter Lucas Montgomery, who ran second the entire way. Friday night Williams Grove winner Brie Hersey advancing from sixth starting spot to cross third at the end. Kyle Denmyer and Cole Young completed the top five.

Heats for the 25 358 Sprinters were won by Michael Hamer, Montgomery, and Young.

East Berlin’s Chad Earnst claimed his first career Lincoln win in the 15-lap Central PA Legends feature. He started fourth and assumed the outside front row when Chis Spidle spun in turn two of the initial start. He grabbed the lead on the restart from polesitter Jacob Feltch and was scored the leader of every lap.

Wild racing in behind saw Duane Watson cross second, but he was later disqualified after a post-race inspection, handing second to Feltch, with 14th-starting Mason Chaney credited with third, Bob Stough fourth, and Chad Glatfelter fifth.

Heats for the 28 Legends were won by Scott Haudeshell, Stough, and Earnst, with Rick Hartwig winning the consolation.

Lincoln Speedway will be back in action this Wednesday night, May 13th, as the WORLD OF OUTLAWS invade the Pigeon Hills to take on the PA Posse. Time trials will get underway at 7:30 PM, with pit gates opening at 3:30 p.m. and general admission gates opening at 4 p.m.

Next Saturday night, May 16th, Lincoln Speedway will be dark allowing the Lincoln PA Posse Teams and fans the opportunity to travel and battle the World of Outlaws.

Montieth Wins Second In A Row In Williams Grove Outlaw Tune Up,

Hershey Wins Second Career In 358s

5/8/15

Mechanicsburg – Brian Montieth of Phoenixville won the Williams Grove Speedway 410 sprint car feature for the second week in a row on Friday night in what was a tune-up event for next week’s invasion by the World of Outlaws.

In the 20-lap 358 sprint main it was lady racer Brie Hershey that took the win after surviving a furious charge to steal the lead on a restart with two laps to go.

Don Kreitz Jr. and Montieth shared the front row for the start of the 410 sprint main and Kreitz took the lead immediately as the field raced out of the fourth corner to the green flag.

Kreitz was never able to shake Montieth in the early going and as he entered the backmarkers by lap five the man they call “The Edge” was living up to his name, tearing around the high cushion in pursuit of Kreitz.

The pair of leaders was nose to tail as they crossed the stripe to score lap six and the next time around the roles were reversed with Montieth ahead at the line.

Through heavy traffic the pair played a high-speed game of cat and mouse with Kreitz leading again as the eighth lap was scored.

Montieth settled back for a lap or two before mounting his final challenge and again the pair was racing nose to tail, working the backmarkers on the slickening track.

Montieth finally got the lead for good from Kreitz on the 11th tour and then he began pulling away in what was a non-stop event.

During the later stages Kreitz fell off the winning pace but did finish second while Montieth took the $4,000, 25-lap payday.

Brent Marks rode home third followed by Danny Dietrich and Jim Siegel.

Sixth through 10th went to Greg Hodnett, Tim Glatfelter, Kyle Reinhart, Cory Haas and fast timer Brock Zearfoss.

Heats went to Montieth, Reinhart and Kreitz who also earned the pole by winning the dash.

Austin Hogue took the B Main and Zearfoss set quick time over the 31 cars with a time of 17.445 seconds.

Hershey led all 20 laps of the 358 sprint main after the first and second rows were swapped after a failed initial start.

Hershey took the green that held from the second spot and saw Chase Dietz race into second on the third circuit.

It seemed Hershey was home free until a final caution flag with two laps to go regrouped the field, placing Dietz tight on her bumper with Amy Ott restarting third.

And when green reappeared Hershey had Dietz wedged to her inside while Ott blasted to the outside as the trio bolted into the first corner.

But Hershey proved unshakable and kept her line to hold off the challenges and pick up her second career Williams Grove Speedway limited sprint win.

Dietz ended up second followed by Matt Campbell, Adrian Shaffer and Ott, who slipped backward after her attempt at the win.

Heats went to Dietz, Matt Campbell and Adrian Shaffer.

SMITH STORMS TO JACK GUNN SPRINT CAR MEMORIAL WIN; CAMPBELL STREAKS TO FIRST LATE MODEL VICTORY OF SEASON; BACHMAN SCORES FIRST PRO STOCK VICTORY IN THRILLER

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Polesitter Mark Smith of Sunbury made up lost ground late in the race to score an exciting victory in Saturday night’s 30-lap United Racing Club-sanctioned 35th Annual Jack Gunn Memorial for 360 sprint cars at Selinsgrove Speedway.

For Smith, the $3,500 win was his third at the track and fourth overall this season in 360 sprint car competition at the wheel of the Mach 1 Chassis No. 1. Aaron Ott of East Berlin was the night’s Fast Tees Fast Qualifier over the 32-car field with a lap time of 17.308.

Steve Campbell of Danville won his first race of the season in record-setting fashion in the 25-lap super late model feature. Campbell’s 46th career late model win at the speedway was a new track record for the distance in a time of 9:02.20.

Kyle Bachman and Nathan Long of Selinsgrove see-sawed for the lead for several laps before Bachman came away with his first win of the year in the 15-lap pro stock feature.

Selinsgrove Speedway will hold the Max Media Pack The Track Night this Saturday, May 9, featuring $5 general admission for adults and students for a four division racing show of 360 sprints, late models, pro stocks, and roadrunners at 7 p.m. Max Media will be hosting a tailgating party 4-6 p.m. at the main gate with music, games and prizes prior to the start of the racing program.

Second-place starter Robbie Stillwaggon drove into the lead at the start of the sprint car feature and was chased by third-place starter Josh Weller. Polesitter Mark Smith lost some ground on the start but kept the leaders in his sights.

The caution flag unfurled on lap four when Jason Shultz’s car developed a flat tire. On the restart, Stillwaggon continued to set the pace while Smith cleared Weller’s car for the second position. The race was stopped on lap eight for a four-car melee at the end of the backstretch in which Shultz’s car flipped over. Cody Keller, Ryan Kissinger, and Tyler Ross were also involved in the incident. All drivers escaped injury.

By the midway point of the race, Stillwaggon and Smith were setting a blistering pace through traffic with Weller, eighth-place starter Davie Franek, and fourth-place starter Aaron Ott in close pursuit.

With five laps to race, Stillwaggon and Smith diced their way through traffic. Entering turn one on the 27th circuit, Smith made the winning pass using the high line. Once in front of the pack, Smith cruised to a 1.4 second margin of victory over Stillwaggon, Ott, 22nd-place starter TJ Stutts, and Franek.

Outside front row starter Kenny Trevitz outdueled polesitter Tony Adams for the early lead in the super late model main event following three attempts to get the race started. On the second circuit, fourth-place starter Steve Campbell horsepowered his way into the second spot and started to reel in Trevitz.

Campbell made the winning pass by Trevitz using the inside lane coming off turn four on the fifth lap. By lap 10, however, sixth-place starter Matt Cochran advanced to second and started to show a lot of speed. Late in the race, Cochran closed in on Campbell at a brisk pace with last week’s winner and eighth-place starter Dave Zona racing third.

At the checkered flag, Campbell was victorious by just .96 of a second over Cochran, Zona, Trevitz, and fifth-place starter Jim Yoder. Following the two initial caution flags, the race went non-stop for 25 laps in a record time of 9:02.203.

In the pro stock feature, third-place starter Kyle Bachman darted into the lead and was chased by polesitter Dave Brouse Jr. for the first lap until fifth-place starter Nathan Long drove into the runner-up position. Long quickly caught Bachman and made a pass for the lead on lap five when Bachman’s car drifted high in turns one and two.

Long set the pace with Bachman in striking distance until Long’s car developed a mechanical issue and rolled to a stop in turn four. Bachman inherited the lead at this point and had to fend off two-time winner and sixth-place starter Andrew Shoop as the two see-sawed for the lead lap after lap.

Bachman narrowly held off Shoop for the win by a mere .20 of a second as the two drivers raced side-by-side coming off turn four for the checked flag. AJ Stroup, Derrick Garman, and Curtis Lawton rounded out the top five.

MONTIETH CARRIES STERNER CEMENT COLORS TO THRILLING WIN IN STERNER MEMORIAL;

Rohrbaugh holds off Hammaker in “358” sprint feature; Zimmerman tenth to first in All-American Outlaws

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 5/2/2015 – Intense. That was the operative word to describe the 33-lap, $6,900-to-win 12th Annual Weldon Sterner Memorial at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

And standing in victory lane for his third Lincoln win of the year and second win in two nights was Brian Montieth, who eats intensity for breakfast.

“There wasn’t’ much room anywhere, and we weren’t actually very good there at the end. I was worried, and tried looking at the scoreboard, but there was way too much stuff going on,” said Montieth after scoring his 47th career Lincoln win, “I was trying to run defensive and be offensive the whole time. Running first here sort-of sucks. It’s always better running second except when you get in that kind of lapped traffic.”

The win ended another storybook night for the Weldon Sterner Memorial, with the Jerry Parrish team carrying the Sterner Cement logo on the top wing of the car normally numbered 21.

Time trials and an inversion at the front of the field put Montieth seventh for the start alongside fast time trailer Greg Hodnett. Those two battled for position in the early stages of the race, with previous race winner and polesitter J.J. Grasso leading the first 14 laps.

The only caution of the race came out for Jim Siegel and Glenndon Forsythe, who got together in turn four of lap three.

The last 30 laps went non-stop, with the leaders racing through heavy lapped traffic from lap 11 on. That’s when things began to change. Danny Dietrich was the first to make his move, catching Robbie Kendall for second on lap 12, with Montieth following on his heels into third. On the next lap, Montieth got around Dietrich for the runner-up spot. Two laps later, Montieth took the lead for good. But Dietrich, who caught Grasso on lap 16, wouldn’t let Montieth get away.

“I have to say I don’t even remember it,” answered Montieth when asked about the pass for the lead, “I was too busy trying to hit marks and trying not to screw anybody up or wad myself up.”

Those two fought through lapped traffic the remainder of the race, with Dietrich closing on Montieth several times, only to have Montieth make slider after slider to put lapped cars in between. Despite 30 non-stop laps, Montieth’s final margin of victory was a mere half-second.

“Danny tried choosing a line and make that pass…toward the end there the middle had a lot of rubber, and it helps with some of those slide jobs driving through the corners,” said the Phoenixville points leader, “This is probably one of the harder intense races I’ve ever driven here.”

“Not much excites me, and my heart was beating,” said car owner Jerry Parrish, “Brian’s the most determined driver behind the wheel. I know Danny was back there licking his chops waiting for a lapped car to choke him up and take advantage. He ran good too. I’m glad we’re standing here. Honestly, this is what exciting racing is about right here at THIS track.”

Third through fifth were Grasso, Hodnett, and Kendall, with Brent Marks, Alan Krimes, Tim Glatfelter, Niki Young, and Freddie Rahmer completing the top ten.

Fast time in time trials over the 30-car field was set by Hodnett with a one-lap time of 13.164-seconds (102.552 MPH). Heats for the 410 sprinters were won by Glatfelter, Scott Fisher, and Grasso, with Nicole Bower winning the consolation.

Jeff Rohrbaugh moved into sole possession of second place on the all-time Lincoln 358 sprint car win list with his 12th career win in their 20-lap feature event.

Rohrbaugh started started eighth and found himself the leader after getting together with polesitter and race-long leader Kody Lehman on turn two of lap 17. Lehman spun out, collecting sixth-place Cody Fletcher and Dylan Welsh. Rohrbaugh never stopped, and assumed the race lead for the restart.

Rohrbaugh held off Lincoln and Central PA point series leader Doug Hammaker by 1.25 seconds at the end, with Matt Campbell, Chris Frank, and Ryan Wilson rounding out the top five.

Heats for the 30 358 Sprinters were won by Hammaker, Jordon Givler, and Frank, with Cody Fairchok winning the consolation.

Pasadena, Maryland’s Kurt Zimmerman came from tenth starting spot to score his fourth career Lincoln win in the 20-lap All-American Outlaw feature.

Fred and Justin Cullum crossed second and third, followed by Rick Hulson and Bryan Green.

Heats for the 17 All American Outlaws were won by Green and Justin Cullum.

Next Saturday night, May 9th, it will be PROSPECT METAL & USED AUTO PARTS NIGHT featuring the Lawrence Chevrolet 410 Sprints, Keizer Aluminum Wheels 358 Sprints, & Central PA Legends. In addition, it will be Dover Elementary Night.

PRS 2015 – 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

Buckwalter, Schmidt And Waters Claim Port Royal Features

5/2/15

Port Royal – Steve Buckwalter held off Lucas Wolfe to win the 410 sprint car feature Saturday night at Port Royal Speedway to score his second career victory at the oval.

In the 22-lap super late model main Jason Schmidt of Lewistown powered to his first ever division win at the track, holding off the furious charges of Matt Parks and Dylan Yoder.

And in the 18-lap 305 sprint feature local driver Jake Waters took the victory on his birthday.

Buckwalter started third in the 25-lap 410 sprint main and made quick work of the front row on the start, driving by Blane Heimbach and Rick Lafferty in the first and second turns to take the lead on the backstretch.

Lafferty tried coming back on Buckwalter after he got control but repeated low dives in the first turn proved unsuccessful for the defending track champion.

A restart on the fifth lap found Heimbach in third and eighth starter Lucas Wolfe up to fifth.

The running order was the same with nine away when another caution flag regrouped the field but this time Wolfe went to work when action resumed, as did Heimbach.

Both drivers advanced a spot at the front on the 10th circuit and Wolfe still wasn’t done.

He motored by Lafferty on the 11th tour and then went into second over Heimbach with 12 laps to go.

Wolfe methodically started cutting down Buckwalter’s advantage of some 2.5 seconds lap after lap after assuming second but after narrowing the margin to a half-second, he was no longer able to close.

Instead, Buckwalter maintained his lead and pulled it back out to one second before the finish.

Wolfe was second followed by Heimbach, Lafferty and Ryan Taylor.

Sixth through 10th went to Doug Esh, Logan Wagner, Dylan Cisney, Davey Sammons and Kevin Nouse.

Heats went to Taylor, Wolfe and Lafferty.

Jason Schmidt started second in the late model main and took the lead over Waylon Wagner at the start.

But back in the pack several heavy hitters were working their way to the front in an effort to battle for the victory.

Matt Parks began the race in sixth and blasted into second on the third tour before starting what would be a continuous pursuit of an unshakable Schmidt.

Parks just kept getting higher and higher around the track, at times glancing off the outside rail as he searched for a way around the leader.

And then on the 14th lap seventh starter Dylan Yoder took over third from Tim Wilson and he too began closing in for the front spots.

During the last eight laps the front four cars of Schmidt, Parks, Yoder and ninth starter Nick Dickson raced with the same straightaway of one another, working through traffic to the finish.

Schmidt persevered to take the win by. .663 seconds over Parks, Yoder, Dickson and Wilson.

Sixth through 10th went to Mike Lupfer, Tim Smith Jr., Derrick Casner, Trent Brenneman and Lindsay Barton.

Heats went to Wilson, Smith Jr. and Yoder.

Jake Waters drove to his birthday win in the 305 sprints for his second career triumph at the oval.

Waters was the class of the field throughout the affair, staying ahead of Bill Jones Jr. to the finish.

James Pryde, Zach Newlin and Randy Kaylor rounded out the top five.

Sixth through 10th went to Sean Kirkpatrick, Nathan Gramley, Jeff Miller, Marcus Defreitas and Reed Thompson.

Miller went to the rear after bringing out the caution flag while running sixth on the eighth tour and then came blasting back through the field to end up eighth at the finish.

Heats went to Erin Statler, Jones and Cale Reigle.

Montieth And Hammaker Split Williams Grove Sprint Mains

5/1/15

Mechanicsburg – Brian Montieth of Phoenixville won his first Williams Grove Speedway sprint car feature of the year on Friday night after taking the lead from Pat Cannon on the 10th lap.

Montieth then went on to lead the final 16 circuits to take home $3,600 plus another $160 in lap money for the victory.

Doug Hammaker became the third and final leader in the 358 sprint feature to take home the checkers in that division to close the night.

Second starter Cannon took the lead when action began in the 410 sprint main over Tim Glatfelter with fourth starter Montieth running third on the first lap.

Montieth and Glatfelter went back and forth in a spirited battle for second for a few laps before Montieth finally got the spot with five away.

And then he set his sights on Cannon, who began working the backmarkers on the seventh tour.

Cannon could only maintain staying ahead of Montieth until the fourth corner of the 10th lap when Montieth went out front for good.

Over the last half of the race, fifth starter Alan Krimes surged to the front, motoring by the competition while cruising around the bottom side of the speedway.

He took third with 11 laps to go and then got Cannon for second with seven remaining.

However he was far behind the leader at that point and failed to close the gap during the final stages and even a lone caution flag with two laps to go failed to produce a race for the win as Montieth streaked away for the victory.

Cannon ran a good race to finish third followed by 12th starter Greg Hodnett and eighth starter Brent Marks.

Sixth through 10th went to Lance Dewease, Lucas Wolfe, Glatfelter, Mark Smith and Brock Zearfoss.

Heats went to Marks, Krimes and Danny Dietrich.

Adrian Shaffer took the lead at the start of the 20-lap 358 sprint main and was holding a healthy lead on the 11th tour when disaster struck as he worked the backmarkers.

He had run up on Russell Hammaker and CJ Quirk who were jockeying for position on the backchute and when the pair couldn’t decide what lines they were taking Shaffer made contact as he tried to get around them, forcing him to spin the car against the inside wall.

That handed the lead to fourth starter Kevin Nouse who would lead until the 17th tour.

By that time Doug Hammaker had driven from fourth on the restart to second place using the inside lane and he went out front using the same lane to record the payday.

Nouse settled for second followed by Matt Campbell, Chandler Leiby and Brad McClelland.

Sixth through 10th went to Kody Lehman, Rich Eichelberger, Chase Dietz, Matt Findley and Scott Fisher.

Heats went to Lehman, McClelland and Shaffer.

$3.8 MILLION DOLLARS PAID OUT IN 114 EVENTS & 25 YEARS,

THUNDER ON THE HILL TO KICKOFF 26TH SEASON SUNDAY, MAY 24 WITH 5-25’S FEATURES ONLY EVENT AT GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY

A busy season is planned as the twenty-six year of the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series will kick off Sunday night, May 24 with the popular Grandview Thunder 5-25’s feature only event at the Grandview Speedway. Thunder on the Hill nears closer and closer to reaching the $4 million dollar mark in competitor payout. After twenty-five years and one-hundred and fourteen events, the series has distributed in excess of $3.8 million dollars to drivers and owners. The 2015 Thunder Series will showcase some very popular racing events to include the Grandview Thunder 5-25’s, the USAC Non Wing Sprints, the Double Down Dirtcar Modified & 358 Modified Traffic Jam Double-header, the Pennsylvania Sprint Speed Week Series for the 410 sprints plus the Thunder Cup for the 410 Sprints.

The Thunder Series opener on Sunday, May 24 is a fan favorite with the Grandview Thunder 5-25’s. Making up this unique features only program will be the 358 NASCAR Modifieds, ARDC Non-Wing Midgets, TSRS Sprint Cars, Sportsman and Legend cars. Five divisions and five twenty-lap features, all for an adult admission price of $20

Thunder on the Hill continues to present unique and different racing events that incorporate various divisions of dirt track racing from throughout the country. The coming season will offer some new and exciting events to include the Modified DOUBLE DOWN Dirtcar & 358 Modified double-header on Tuesday night, June 16. USAC will return to Grandview for their ninth annual visit and the new THUNDER CUP event for 410 sprints will be a thriller for the race fans and a competitor pleaser as well.

In the 410 sprints, the question is, who can stop Greg Hodnett? Over the past two years, Greg Hodnett is unstoppable, winning the last four consecutive 410 sprint features at Thunder on the Hill. Hodnett was the Thunder Series Sprint Champion five times to include claiming the title the last three consecutive years. Hodnett owns eight career Thunder victories, trailing Billy Pauch with eleven sprint wins, Lance Dewease with ten wins and Fred Rahmer with nine victories.

Following the May 24 Thunder Opener, the series will continue on Tuesday night, June 2 with the 9th Annual EASTERN Storm. The USAC Non-Wing Sprints & ARDC Non-Wing Midgets will take part in the Annual Jesse Hockett Classic. This “rub rails and rooster tails” show is always a crowd pleasing event as the USAC stars are not afraid of the Grandview Speedway outside boiler-plate. If you have not seen a USAC show at Grandview, it’s a show you will want to see. Drivers expected to make the Eastern Storm include Casey Shuman from Tempe, AZ, Jarett Andretti from Mooresville, NC, Jerry Coons Jr from Tucson, AZ, Chase Stockon from Elizabethtown, IN, Shane Cottle from Kokomo, IN, Brady Bacon from Broken Arrow, OK and Dave Darland from Lincoln, IN just to name a few.

The third Thunder event will showcase the return of the DIRTCar Modifieds joined by a complete show of the Grandview 358 Modifieds making up the 18th Annual Traffic Jam on Tuesday night, June 16. This is a first time ever presentation of these two premier divisions coming together on the “hill”. The DIRTCar Modifieds will battle 60 laps for $6,000 to win as the 358 Modifieds chase a $3,000 payday in a 30 lap feature. It’s a Double Down for Modifieds Night with an added $1,000 Bonus from Pioneer Pole Buildings for any driver who can Double Down and win both features. It’s a possible $10,000 payday if one driver wins both feature events.

Always a popular show is the Pennsylvania Sprint Speed Week Series when the 410 Sprints and the Modifieds team up on Tuesday night, June 30. The 410 sprints will complete in time trials, heat race qualifying events and a $5,000 to win 35 lap feature. The 358 NASCAR Modifieds will be on the program with qualifying events all leading up to the $3,000 to win 30 lap feature. In the modified division, Jeff Strunk is the all-time feature winner with ten victories followed by Duane Howard (6 wins), Brett Hearn (5 wins), Craig VonDohren (5 wins) and Doug Manmiller is a four time modified feature winner in the Thunder Series record books.

The 410 Sprints will return in the THUNDER CUP of 2015 joined by the 358 Modifieds on Tuesday night, July 28. More to come on this special event.

The Gunn Memorial became a URC-sanctioned challenge race between 358 and 360 sprint car drivers in 2006, when Heimbach took the victory as well as in the 2008 and 2012 editions of the race. Calaman (2007); Trevor Lewis of Upper Black Eddy (2009, 2010); Shane Stewart of Indianapolis, Ind. (2011); JJ Grasso of Pedricktown, N.J.

Darrah Has Skills To Pay Bills For Whopping Weikert All Stars Port Royal Win!

4/25/15

Port Royal – Cody Darrah of Red Lion made a triumphant return to Port Royal Speedway on Saturday Night to claim nearly $20,000 in the 12th running of the prestigious All Star Circuit of Champions Sprints Bob Weikert Memorial.

In an emotional victory lane ceremony, the former Kasey Kahne Racing driver credited Tony Stewart for the initiative he is putting into the All Stars as the clubs new owner while he also noting his appreciation of winning in front of a Pennsylvania crowd again, with his family all around him after spending several seasons touring across the nation.

The victory was the third of Darrah’s career at the track and it came after several tense moments during the 40-lap Weikert A Main.

In taking the checkers, Darrah became just the second All Star touring driver to claim a win at the historic oval over the Pennsylvania Posse drivers in a history that dates back to 1981.

The initial start of the feature event was called back when Danny Dietrich got sideways in the first corner as the green flag unfurled, making contact with pre-race favorite Greg Hodnett.

Dietrich, aboard a replica Weikert’s Livestock No. 29 sprinter, and defending event winner Hodnett were done for the nigh.

When action resumed, second starter Darrah and polesitter Brent Marks displayed awesome high-speed acrobatics as they repeatedly pulled slide jobs on one another to gain control over the first two laps.

Marks would lead the first lap at the line with Darrah going out front at the line with two circuits completed after a daring and dangerous run at Marks as the pair shot through the fourth turn that saw the two drive toward the outside wall as they raced inches apart, both refusing to surrender the position.

Marks went back at Darrah in the first corner after crossing the line and swooped low to try a pass only to have Sheldon Haudenschild instead capitalize and motor by into second.

The front runners entered the backmarkers on the seventh loop and that’s when Marks reclaimed second with a big turn two slide job on Haudenschild that saw Sheldon give Marks a sender as the Myerstown driver slid up in front to take the line away.

From there Marks began trying to keep pace with Darrah as the leader continued to pile up lap money at the clip of $100 per lap.

During a caution for a stopped Steve Buckwalter on the 16th lap the race went red for a fuel stop and when action returned Marks took a shot at Darrah deep in the first turn.

But Darrah ran his momentum through the turns to pull back around Marks as the duo raced onto the backstretch before again entering traffic with 18 laps to go.

Darrah worked heavy and hectic lapped traffic during the last half of the race, pulling slide jobs on some and slingshots on others to work around the backmarkers and disaster nearly struck with four laps to go when he made heavy contact with Caleb Helms as the pair raced onto the frontstretch.

The contact send Helms hard into the outside wall although he escaped injury.

And then Darrah jetted away to the finish for the win that included the posted $15,000 winner’s share plus another $3,900 in lap money.

And when added in, an additional $100 for winning his heat race earlier in the night made his total event take an even $19,000.

Marks was happy with his second place run and said his race with Darrah early when the pair swapped the lead repeatedly was quite enjoyable.

After starting 12th, Dave Blaney blasted through the pack to pass his brother Dale for third on the 15th lap, where he would finish the night on the podium.

Dale Blaney ended up fourth with Ryan Smith finishing fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Aaron Ott, Lucas Wolfe, Brock Zearfoss and Lance Dewease.

Wolfe took home the $200 Hard Charger Award for his run from 19th to eighth.

Dave Blaney pocketed the $350 Raymond Jacobs Fast Time Award after turning in a lap of 15.909 seconds in time trials over the 44-car field.

Heats, worth $100 each, went to Ryan Smith, Marks, Dale Blaney, Dave Ely and Darrah,

Marks took another $100 for claiming the dash while Lance Dewease won the B Main.

Nate Snyder was honored with a $500 award in honor of late speedway president Gerald Clark as the first non-qualifer.

Tim Fedder of Newport won the first econo late model feature of his career in a crash-plagued event.

Eric Irvin was second followed by Andrew Yoder, Shaun Miller and Jared Fulkroad.

Twin heats went to Devin Hart and Troy Miller.

Jason Davis won the xtreme stock feature event to close the night over a hard charging Pete Leister with Jason Zook finishing third.

Port Royal Weikert Memorial Expands To Two-Day Show In 2016!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

4/25/15

Port Royal – The 2016 Bob Weikert Memorial at Port Royal Speedway will be bigger and better than ever in conjunction with the Weikert family.

Oval officials and the Weikert family announced an expanded version of the prestigious race at the 2015 event on Saturday night.

The new format and program is slated to take place over the Memorial Day holiday weekend next season, May 28 and 29, 2016.

“You all be here next year, pack your coolers and your campers and we’re gonna’ have some damn fun!”

Those were the words Todd Weikert exclaimed as he broke the news to the crowd on hand for the 12th running of the race on Saturday.

The new two-day format opens up significant possibilities for promotion of the event with details still to be determined.

But any way you look at it, the 2016 Bob Weikert Memorial is going to be the sprint car event of the holiday weekend and one of the biggest of the season anywhere and Port Royal will be the place to be.

“This expansion of dad’s race is just the logical next step that we wanted to take with Port Royal to honor my dad in a way that is most fitting,” said Todd Weikert Saturday night.

“My dad was always about doing things bigger and better and being proud of what you do in racing and in life and that’s what we are trying for with this big program.”

“My dad would love this,” Weikert said.

Details regarding this big event will be ironed out in the coming months and released upon their completion.

SMITH MAKES MID-PACK CHARGE FOR SECOND 360 SPRINT WIN; ZONA STOPS RINE’S WINNING STREAK IN LATE MODELS; SHOOP CRUISES TO SECOND PRO STOCK VICTORY; FOWLER BECOMES THIRD DIFFERENT ROADRUNNER WINNER

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Mark Smith of Sunbury started Saturday night’s 25-lap 360 sprint car feature at Selinsgrove Speedway in the 10th position and made a late-race pass by Jason Shultz of Carlisle for his second win of the season at the Snyder County oval.

The $2,000 victory at the wheel of the Mach 1 Chassis house car was Smith’s 13th career at the track in 358-360 sprint car competition.

Dave Zona of Montrose held off a last-ditch effort by two-time winner Jeff Rine of Danville for his first win of the season in the 25-lap super late model feature.

Andrew Shoop of Mifflintown won his second race of the year in the 15-lap pro stock feature, while John Fowler Jr. of Montandon scored his first win of the season in the 12-lap roadrunner race.

Selinsgrove Speedway will present the 35th annual Jack Gunn Memorial for 360 sprint cars sanctioned by the United Racing Club at 7 p.m. Saturday, May 2. The 30-lap tribute race will pay $3,500 to win and will include time trials as part of the qualifying format. The super late models and pro stocks will also be on the racing card. Track gates will open at 5 p.m.

At the start of the sprint car feature, third-place starter Michael Walter got turned sideways in turn four and collected 16th-place starter Mallie Shuster. When the race restarted, original fourth-place starter Jason Shultz drove into the lead with seventh-place starter TJ Stutts in pursuit.

With five laps completed, Shultz and Stutts led second-place starter Derek Locke, polesitter Ryan Kissinger, and sixth-place starter Larry Kelleher in the top five spots. At the lap eight marker, 10th-place starter Mark Smith dueled with Stutts for the runner-up position. Smith eventually secured second on the 12th lap.

In the final laps of the race, Smith caught Shultz in traffic and made the winning pass using the inside lane in turn one on the 20th circuit. Smith stretched his lead as Stutts began to pressure Shultz for the runner-up position. At the checkered flag, Smith was victorious by a mere second over Stutts, Shultz, 15th-place starter Chuck Hebing, and 12th-place starter Davie Franek.

Polesitter Chad Hollenbeck powered into the lead at the start of the late model feature. Hollenbeck was trailed by second-place starter Meade Hahn for the first two laps before third-place starter Dave Zona took over the runner-up position.

Hollenbeck continued to lead the race until the sixth lap when Zona made the winning pass on the backstretch. At the halfway point, Zona was setting the pace in front of sixth-place starter Jim Yoder, ninth-place starter Matt Cochran, 12th-place starter Jeff Rine, and 14th-place starter Kyle Harder.

With nine laps to race, Rine advanced to second and began to reel in Zona in traffic. Dylan Yoder, who started 13th, horsepowered his way into the third spot with five laps remaining. On the final circuit, Zona took the high line around lapped traffic and edged out Rine by just .28 of a second for the victory. D. Yoder, Hardy, and Cochran completed the top five.

Polesitter Matt Hornberger led the first lap of the pro stock feature until fourth-place starter Andrew Shoop made the winning pass in turn two on the second circuit. On the sixth circuit, third-place starter AJ Stroup advanced to second and set his sights on the leader. Despite several caution flags, Shoop kept his racer out in front of the pack and posted a .67 of a second margin of victory over Stroup, Nathan Long, Matt Hornberger, and Kyle Bachman.

Front row starter Ricky Buss escaped injury when his roadrunner went into a series of barrel rolls on the backstretch at the start of the main event. When the race resumed, third-place starter John Fowler Jr. pulled into the lead and held off fifth-place starter and last week’s winner Bob Bussey by .24 of a second for the victory. Dustin Snook, Jeremy Kline, and Brandon Shultz completed the top five.

J.J. GRASSO HOLDS OFF A CHARGING MONTIETH FOR SECOND CAREER LINCOLN 410 SPRINT WIN;

Shaffer makes another last turn pass for 358 sprint win; Chad Glatfelter best of Central PA Legends

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 4/25/2015 – A close call in turn four of lap 21 turned out to be the winning move for J.J. Grasso en route to his second Lincoln career win on Saturday night.

Grasso, who led every lap from his outside front row starting spot, was bogged down by side-by-side racing lapped traffic when he felt the heat from 11th-starting Lincoln points leader Brian Montieth.

“We had some tense moments there when I was getting to the lapped cars. I didn’t know how close anyone was getting to me, but I saw the 21 on the board and I had to make a move,” said Grasso in victory lane, “I had ‘em running two-wide in front of me and I couldn’t get by them.”

Grasso and Steve Owings actually made contact as Grasso was splitting lapped cars to stay in front. Owings saved it, but dropped to the infield with two laps to go.

“I feel a little bit bad for the 21A there, because I kind of scared him up. I was hoping I wasn’t gonna wreck, but I felt like I had to do it.”

“This is huge,” said Grasso, “I want to thank my dad. He’s put a lot of money in this, along with BK Trucking and C&B Mushrooms. This is unbelievable. We were quick from the get-go. We were terrible last week, but my dad and the crew worked on it hard, and again tonight in the pits.

Grasso’s final margin of victory was 1.53 seconds over Montieth, with Tyler Ross scoring his best-ever finish in third, Cory Haas fourth, and defending track champ Alan Krimes fifth. Rounding out the top ten were Freddie Rahmer, Adam Wilt, 16th-starting Jim Siegel, Kyle Moody, and 20th-starting Austin Hogue.

Heats for the 33 410 sprinters were won by Haas, Montieth, Grasso, and Freddie Rahmer, with Brandon Rahmer winning the consolation.

For the second time this season, Adrian Shaffer made a last turn pass to win a 358 sprint car feature.

Shaffer gave car owner Stewart Smith a 52nd birthday present by making a perfect last turn slider to get by Chris Arnold and score the win.

A disappointed Arnold crossed second, with tenth-starting Chandler Leiby, Doug Hammaker, and Kevin Nouse completing the top five. Sixth through tenth were Matt Campbell, 21st-starting Jeff Rohrbaugh, early race leader John Braim, 19th-starting Todd Rittenhouse, Jr., and Tyler Esh.

Heats for the 32 358 Sprinters were won by Esh, Leiby, Nouse, and Doug Hammaker, with Rohrbaugh winning the consolation.

Chad Glatfelter started on the outside front row, beat polesitter Harlon Leppo to the stripe to complete lap one, and led every lap of the 15-lap Central PA Legends feature. Leppo spun exiting turn four of the final lap, and was credited with a 17th place finish.

Taking advantage of Leppo’s bad luck was opening night winner Bob Stough, who ran third the entire race until Leppo’s final lap misfortune.

Third through fifth were Chad Earnst, Bill Diehl, and Mason Chaney.

Heats for the 23 Legends were won by Leppo, Chad Glatfelter, and Chaney.

Next Saturday night, April 25th, it is the 12TH ANNUAL WELDON STERNER MEMORIAL for 410 Sprints, plus 358 Sprints and All-American Outlaws Time trials get underway for the 410 sprinters at 7:30 PM, with gates opening at 5:30 PM and hot laps getting underway at 7 PM.

Hodnett Turns Back All Stars At Williams Grove

4/24/15

Mechanicsburg – Greg Hodnett scored for the Pennsylvania Posse against the All Star Circuit of Champions Sprints on Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway, taking his first oval win of the season worth $5,000.

Hodnett turned back a strong contingent of All Stars in an event that found circuit regular Danny Holtgraver holding the pole position for the start of the 30-lap feature.

Only two laps were scored with Holtgraver in control when the races first caution flag unfurled.

On the restart Holtgraver held off the advances of Brent Marks to surge out to a comfortable lead with Danny Dietrich, Cory Haas and Hodnett in tow.

Hodnett started third in the field but fell backward on the start and nearly spun out in the second turn before settling himself.

Holtgraver entered the backmarkers on the 10th circuit followed closely by Marks, Dietrich, Hodnett and now Dale Blaney.

And for the next five circuits the front five cars raced within the same set of turns, darting through hectic traffic before all heck broke loose at the halfway point.

Holtgraver began fading and Marks capitalized to lead the 15th tour and by lap 16 Holtgraver was back to fifth with Hodnett pouncing on Dietrich for second amid a dizzying pace.

Dietrich wasn’t done, instead livened-up by Hodnett’s pass and he pushed his car higher around the oval to reclaim second as the pair dueled for the spot before Hodnett really took hold of the surface in the bottom groove to drive into control over Marks with 12 laps to go.

On the 18th lap, the front four cars stacked up top to bottom, nearly four wide in the first corner as each driver fought for control with Hodnett coming out on top in an exciting display of speed and jockeying.

But once Hodnett got into clean air he was able to check out on the field, leaving the pack to scrap for what was left of the race.

After starting 10th, Ryan Smith bolted into the top five with 10 laps to go and made inroads along with Lance Dewease before the checkers.

Hodnett was ready to see the checkers with a lap to go when a final yellow regrouped the field, forcing a green-white-checker finish in which Hodnett took the victory by .683 seconds over Dietrich.

Dale Blaney rode home third for a podium finish by the All Stars, followed by Dewease and Smith.

Sixth through 10th went to Marks, Stevie Smith, Steve Buckwalter, Cory Haas and Brock Zearfoss.

Heats for the 39-car field went to Holtgraver, Haas, Marks and Smith with Gerard McIntyre Jr. taking the B Main.

Holtgraver won the dash to earn the pole for the feature event.

Hodnett set overall fast time in qualifications with a lap of 16.152 seconds, which was the fastest lap turned at the oval since the imposition of a weight rule numerous years ago. The time was the fastest turned in at the track since Sammy Swindell came in with a time of 16.175 in October of 2011.

Les Hare wired the field for the win in the 358 limited late model main event to close the night.

Cam Zeigler, Shaun Jones, Justin Ehrhart and 16th starter Wes Alleman completed the top five.

Heats went to Sam Gallagher, Alan Sagi and Ehrhart.

CUNNINGHAM WINS SECOND TIME OUT IN 358 SPRINT FEATURE AT TRAIL-WAY

HANOVER, PA (4/24/2015) – The 19 cars finished at the front again Friday night at Trail-Way Speedway.

But this time, it was J.B. Cunningham standing in victory lane.

“I sold all my stuff last year, and if I wouldn’t have, I wouldn’t be here,” said Cunningham upon exiting the Your Auto Source/Bricker’s Famous French Fries/NAPA Auto Parts #19 in victory lane, “I want to thank Don Garrett for believing in me and his sponsorship support.”

After finishing second in their first race as a team last week, Cunningham was running only his second race since 2013.

“I’m worn out,” said Cunningham, “I need to get back in shape!”

“I should have won last week,” continued Cunningham, “Isaac (Sneeringer) if fast here.”

For his part, winner of the first two races Sneeringer started ninth out of ten cars and methodically worked his way through the field to pass 2014 Central PA rookie of-the-year Wyatt Hinkle for second on lap 14.

By then, Cunningham was a half-lap ahead. The only caution of the event came out on lap 16. A lapped car between the #19 and #19z gave Cunningham the room he needed to driver to a 2.44-second win.

Third through fifth were Jeff Halligan in his first appearance of the year, Cody Fletcher, and Bill Stine.

Heats for the 10 “358” sprint cars were won by Tyler Esh and Stine.

Once he got by front row starter Brian Marriott for the lead on lap six, Cory Myers dominated the 20-lap 270cc micro-sprint feature, crossing 9.75 seconds in front of second-place Steven Cox, who came from the back after an early-race incident.

Marriott ran second until dropping off the pace on the final lap and crossing sixth.

Billy Laughman, Tim McClelland, and Joe Long, Jr. rounded out the top five.

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

Dan Furman raced to his first win of the year in the 20-lap street stock feature. Furman crossed one car length in front of teammate Craig Wagaman, with Michael Goodwin, Jeremy Stremmel and Aaron Beard completing the top five.

Wagaman was challenging Furman for the lead on lap 13 when he was struck from behind by third-place Stremmel. Stremmel was sent to the rear with Wagaman and came back through the field to finish fourth.

The lone qualifier for the ten street stocks was also won by Furman.

Shannon Weaver ended a multi-year dry spell by crossing first in a wild 15-lap limited stock feature that saw the whole top five in contention until the very end. Kyle Rohrbaugh crossed a half car length behind in second, with Robbie Carroll, Kenny Startzman, and Robert Nicklow finishing third through fifth.

Robert Wellman led the first nine laps before polesitter Robbie Carroll took the lead. Weaver caught Carroll for the front spot on lap 14, and held off Kyle Rohrbaugh at the end. Rohrbaugh passed Carroll on the last lap.

Heats for the 14 limited stocks were won by Rohrbaugh and Terry Hartlaub.

Next Friday night, May 1st, the Limited Late Models will make their long-awaited return to the famed 1/3rd mile oval on the farm. Although the 358 Sprints will be taking the night off, the Limited Stocks, Central PA Legends, Sidewinders and Penn-Mar Vintage Cars will all be on the schedule. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. and heats begin at 7:45 p.m.

The following Friday, May 8th, the Hoosier Tire Mid-Atlantic 358 Sprints will be back in action along with the Limited Stocks, Street Stocks and 600cc Micro Sprints. It will also be “York County Racing Club Night.” All card holding club members will receive $2 off the admission fee. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. and heats begin at 7:45 p.m.

Port Royal Mourns Loss Of Former President Clark

4/23/15

Port Royal – Port Royal Speedway is mourning the loss of former speedway president Gerald “Jerry” Clark.

Mr. Clark passed away Thursday morning, April 23, 2015 at the age of 93.

Clark became a fairboard member of the Juniata County Agricultural Society in 1952 and while involved in the annual Juniata County Fair in that capacity, it wasn’t until the fairboard took over weekly operation of racing at the oval in 1962 that Clark became integrally involved in conducting and guiding the speedway.

Eventually Clark became the Ag Society Fairboard president in the 1970’s and 1980’s before stepping away late in the 80’s.

Clark’s name was one that was known and respected in the region for the way he conducted not only himself but the racing facility as well.

He guided the oval and competition through a tumultuous period in the mid 1970’s when other area tracks imposed engine limits on the sprint cars.

Clark felt that direction was improper for the division and Port Royal became the “lone ranger” of sorts, opting not to restrict cubic inches.

With time, the other area tracks reversed their restrictions late in the decade while Port Royal continued on just as it had been all along, showing the wisdom in Clark’s decision making.

It was during this time that Clark also maintained the integrity of the speedway’s stock car late model division and helped to grow it as the speedplant flourished.

With this Saturday’s annual Bob Weikert Memorial for sprint cars in the offing at Port Royal, Bob Weikert’s son Todd reflected on Gerald Clark and his tenure after learning of the loss early Thursday.

“He was a great friend of my dads. My dad had a lot of respect for Jerry,” Todd Weikert said.

In 2010 Clark’s son Donald returned the Clark name to prominence at the speedway when he became president of the organization.

And in 2012 the elder Clark and his son Don were feted at the track as the annual Butch Renninger Loyalty, Dedication & Determination Award honorees.

Gerald Clark’s grandson Curt spoke about him Thrusday afternoon.

“The last time I saw him was this past Sunday and he wanted to know how the races went Saturday night,” Curt Clark said.

“His love for that place was still as strong as ever on his last days here!”

A viewing will be held Sunday evening from 6 – 8 pm at the Brown Funeral Home in Mifflintown, 100 Bridge St., with the funeral on Monday at 10 am.

RACING XTRAVAGANZA TAKING SHAPE FOR 2016

By Brad Vores

While it might be the ten months away, race fans need to mark their calendars now for Racing Xtravaganza, your Prescription for Racing Xcitement, once the dust stops flying for the 2015 season in Central Pennsylvania.

Formerly known as the Central PA Dirt Trackin’ show, New Oxford’s Scott Gobrecht has purchased the rights and assets of the 33 year old show and has big plans for race fans in 2016.

It will be a new beginning, with a new name taking place on a new date inside a new venue.

But while there are plenty of “new” things, Gobrecht’s main plan is to bring the show back to what it used to be when race cars, exhibits, booths and so much more jammed packed the building, getting race fans an up close look at what was in store for the upcoming season.

Racing Xtravaganza will be held on Saturday and Sunday, February 6 and 7, 2016 and will take place in the state of the art Utz Arena on the grounds at the York Expo Center.

Gobrecht, along with Show Organizer John Krall are busy working on many new ideas for the show as well as working with potential sponsors who will be instrumental in the success for the new show.

Race fans will once again have something to look forward to before the start of the Central Pennsylvania racing season and both Gobrecht and Krall will be doing everything in their power to bring Xcitement back to wintertime for local race fans.

A new website is currently under construction and fans will be able to check out all breaking news at www.racingxtravanganza.com.

All Stars Return To Williams Grove Friday

358 lates also in action

4/19/15

Mechanicsburg – The All Star Circuit of Champions Sprints will compete at Williams Grove Speedway this Friday, April 24 at 7:30 pm.

The event will mark the first appearance at the oval of the revived traveling group now under the guiding hand and ownership of famed NASCAR and sprint car driver Tony Stewart.

Adult general admission for this weeks All Stars show is set at just $18 with youth ages 13 – 20 admitted for just $10 while ages 12 and under are always admitted for free at Williams Grove.

This week, the Williams Grove portion of the 50/50 drawing will be donated to Med Star Dirt Track Rescue.

Med Star travels the country, providing training and seminars to local dirt track rescue crews in an effort to have every track adequately staffed and prepared for emergency situations they may face on race nights.

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

The 358 limited late models are also on the racing card.

The race will be the second leg of the 2015 Diamond Series at the track after Stevie Smith took last week’s Tommy Hinnershitz Memorial Spring Classic event to kick off the series.

Greg Hodnett has established himself as the early season point leader at the track after Friday’s program.

Down through history, the Williams Grove regulars have remained stalwart defenders of any attack on the oval’s winner’s circle by the invaders.

No All Star has ever won an All Star sanctioned race at Williams Grove Speedway.

The first All Star event ever contested at the historic oval back in 1970 was won by Bobbie Adamson.

Two All Stars shows slated last year at the track fell victim to rain.

No driver has beaten the All Stars more often at the track over the decades than Lance Dewease, who has bested the band a total of five times.

Single wins of note through the years have come with an upset by Barry Camp, a close race to the finish for Jim Siegel and a romp by Steve Buckwalter.

Time trials will set the starting grids for the April 24 All Stars racing program.

Drivers frequenting the All Stars circuit this season include perennial champions Tim Shaffer and Dale Blaney along with Chad Kemenah, Randy Hannagan, Danny Smith, Danny Holtgraver, Ryan Smith and more.

The All Stars will return to the track for a second 2015 race date on June 12.

The kickoff of the 2015 Saturday Night Series featuring the super sportsman, 358 late models and street stocks is slated for Saturday, May 2.

Wolfe Claims Port Royal All Star Weikert Tune Up

Lupfer Continues Late Model Domination, Miller Wins In 305 Sprints Fans & Track Raise $1,550 For Cancer Society On Race To Cure Cancer Night

Port Royal – Lucas Wolfe held off the challenges of Greg Hodnett on Saturday night at Port Royal Speedway to pick up the 410 sprint win in the tune-up race for next week’s All Star Circuit of Champions Bob Weikert Memorial. Mike Lupfer continued his domination in the super late model ranks by winning his third race in a row in what was the third race of the year for the division at the oval. And in the 305 sprint main, defending oval series champion Jeff Miller claimed the feature for his first win of the year.

It was Race To Cure Cancer Night at the track with a total of $1,550 being raised for the American Cancer Society including $750 as the auction price of a special pink five-gallon fuel jug that was autographed by World of Outlaws and Pennsylvania sprint car drivers.

Hodnett won the dash to start the 25-lap 410 sprint main on the pole with Danny Dietrich flanking him on the outside.

Wolfe originally lined up third for the start but a false initial start swapped the first and second rows, placing Wolfe on the pole for the new attempt at a green flag.

Sixth starter Steve Buckwalter moved forward early, taking over the second spot with five laps down and making tracks after the leader.

With Hodnett up to third on the 10th circuit, Buckwalter made a jab at the lead in the first and second turns but Wolfe was up to the challenge and moved back in front to hold control.

Seconds later Buckwalter’s mount slowed to a stop on the backchute, taking him out of contention and placing Hodnett in second.

A lapped car separated leaders on the restart and Hodnett has just disposed of the traffic when the red flag appeared with 13 laps down for a frontstretch roll by Doug Esh that also collected Blane Heimbach.

No lapped cars were between the leaders for the new green and Hodnett made a bid when action resumed by Wolfe rode the cushion through the first and second turns to blast around the slide attempt onto the backchute.

A final yellow unfurled with three laps to go for fourth place runner Ryan Taylor and Wolfe then went uncontested to the victory, which was the second of his career at the oval, worth $3,500.

Hodnett rode home second followed by Dietrich, Dave Blaney and Brent Marks.

Sixth through 10th went to Davey Sammons, Aaron Ott, Rick Lafferty, Logan Wagner and Dave Ely.

Heats went to Dietrich, Ely and Blaney with Hodnett scoring the dash and Dylan Cisney taking the consolation. Fast time was set by Hodnett with a lap of 15.495 seconds.

Polesitter Waylon Wagner led the first four laps of the 22-lap late model main before Mike Lupfer took control.

Early in the race Lupfer went three wide in the second corner to move from his sixth starting spot into third before setting his sights on leader Wagner and Trent Brenneman.

Lupfer went to the outside of Wagner for the lead in the first and second turns to get control before settling into his favored inside line to cruise to the victory.

Brenneman rode home a career best super late model finish of second followed by a surging Mitch Hack who took the spot with four laps to go.

Andy Haus and Matt Parks completed the top five with sixth through 10th going to Tim Wilson, Derrick Casner, Wagner, Bryan Bernheisel and Jason Schmidt.

Heats went to Brenneman and Bernheisel.

Jeff Miller allowed Ken Duke to lead only the first lap of the 18-lap 305 sprint main before taking over after starting second.

Miller’s pace was slowed twice over the distance but to no avail for his challengers.

Scott Ellerman crossed the line second followed by Duke, Zach Newlin and Nathan Gramley.

Heats went to Erin Statler, Ellerman and Newlin.

FRANEK WINS SPRINT CAR THRILLER OVER STUTTS; RINE REPEATS IN SUPER LATE MODELS; LONG MAKES LAST-TURN PASS FOR PRO STOCK WIN; BUSSEY RETURNS TO ROADRUNNER WINNERS CIRCLE

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Davie “No Panic” Franek of Wantage, N.J., scored a thrilling victory over TJ Stutts of Liverpool in Saturday night’s 25-lap 360 sprint car feature at Selinsgrove Speedway.

Franek and Stutts see-sawed for the lead for the last 10 laps of the race with Franek taking his first checkered flag of the season in the Franek Auto Sales No. 28F. The $2,000 victory was Franek’s ninth career at the track.

"I hope you fans enjoyed that!” said Franek in Victory Lane. “It was exciting from my seat!”

Jeff Rine of Danville made it two wins in a row in the 25-lap super late model feature. The victory marked the 93rd of Rine’s career at the track.

Nathan Long of Selinsgrove made a last-lap, final-turn pass by Kyle Bachman of Selinsgrove for his first win of the season in the 15-lap pro stock feature, while Bob Bussey of Northumberland wired the field for his win in the 12-lap roadrunner race.

Selinsgrove Speedway returns with another four division racing card of 360 sprint cars, late models, pro stocks, and roadrunners at 6 p.m. Saturday, April 25. Track gates will open at 4 p.m.

Second-place starter Davie Franek and polesitter Troy Betts dueled for the lead at the start of the sprint car feature. Franek edged out Betts for the lead at the completion of the first lap, when the caution flag waved for a double spin involving Larry Kelleher and Brad Franks in turn four.

On the restart, Franek maintained the lead with fifth-place starter TJ Stutts making a breathtaking move against the guardrail in turn four to drive by both Betts and fourth-place starter Jason Shultz for the second spot! On a lap five restart, 11th-place starter Mark Smith powered into the top five.

At the halfway point, Stutts closed in on Franek in what would turn into a suspenseful race for the lead and win. Slider after slider through the turns, Franek would reclaim the lead from Stutts. While Stutts put his car in front of Franek’s at different times on the track he was never scored as the leader of the race at the start-finish line.

Racing off turn four for the checkered flag, Franek held off Stutts’ last-ditch effort to steal the win. Franek was victorious by just .59 of a second over Stutts, Smith, Betts, and 10th-place starter Colby Womer.

Jeff Rine started on the pole and edged out second-place starter Matt Cochran for the lead at the drop of the green flag in the late model feature. Rine blistered the speedway at the front of the pack while fourth-place starter Steve Campbell kept him in his sights.

A caution flag for Hayes Mattern regroup the field on lap five. When the race resumed, Rine distanced himself from the rest of the field with Campbell trailing in second. A torrid battle for the third spot unfolded between fifth-place starter Kenny Trevitz, third-place starter Dave Zona, and Cochran. At the checkered flag, Rine posted a convincing seven-second margin of victory over Campbell, Cochran, Trevitz, and Jim Yoder.

Derrick Garman pulled into the early lead from his pole starting position and led the first lap of the pro stock feature. On the second circuit, third-place starter Kyle Bachman made an inside pass in turn one to take command of the field.

With five laps remaining, fifth-place starter Nathan Long stormed into the runner up position. Long quickly reeled in Bachman in a race for the lead. On the 11th lap, the caution flag unfurled when Tommy Slanker’s car fell off the pace.

When the race resumed, Long pressured Bachman for the lead. On the final lap, exiting the final turn, Long pulled off the winning pass using the inside line. Long’s margin over victory was a mere .28 of a second over Bachman, Andrew Shoop, AJ Stroup, and Matt Hornberger.

Polesitter Bob Bussey wired the field for his win the roadrunner race. During the first half of the race, fourth-place starter John Fowler Jr. trailed Bussey until fifth-place starter Dustin Snook took over the runner-up position.

Snook put in a last-lap bid to steal the lead and victory away from Bussey to no avail. At the finish, Bussey was victorious by .63 of a second over Snook. After the post-race inspection, however, Snook’s car was disqualified over a technicality. Fowler was credited with the second position, followed by Jeremy Kline, Brandon Shultz, and Butch Shaffer.

FORSYTHE SCORES THIRD CAREER LINCOLN WIN ON JOHN H. MYERS & SON NIGHT;

Doug Hammaker claims second career Lincoln win in 358 sprints; Kyle Martin holds off Brian Walls in Street Stocks

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 4/18/2015 – Score one for the little guys in Saturday night’s thriller at Lincoln Speedway.

Glenndon Forsythe started on the pole and claimed his first Lincoln win in more than a year (8/13/13). But he didn’t lead every lap, as four cars were still in the hunt when the event’s only caution came out as the leaders headed into turns three and four on the last lap.

Forsythe led the first 18 non-stop laps before sixth-starting Austin Hogue, driving the other Livingston Lawn Car sprinter, raced down the York racer exiting turn four in heavy lapped traffic on lap 19. Hogue led the next two laps, but couldn’t get away from Forsythe, who reclaimed the lead exiting turn two of lap 22.

As those two raced for the lead, outside front row starter Mike Bittinger and ninth-starting Alan Krimes entered the battle, with all four cars still in the hunt when the event’s only caution came out for a slowing Billy Dietrich just in front the leaders in turn four.

Forsythe withstood the final one-lap dash to the checkered, crossing just in front of Hogue, with a hard-charging Jim Siegel catching both Krimes and Bittinger for third on the final lap. Bittinger and Krimes finished fourth and fifth.

Rounding out the top ten were 12th-starting Lance Dewease, 11th-starting Brian Montieth, Adam Wilt, Cory Haas, and Kyle Moody.

Heats for the 32 410 Sprinters were won by Wilt, Krimes, Siegel, and Moody, with Brandon Rahmer winning the consolation.

Freddie Rahmer was uninjured in a heat race flip that saw him bicycle and crash hard into the fourth turn wall. The car was done for the night

Carlisle’s Doug Hammaker held onto his Central PA point series lead by claiming his second Lincoln career win in the 20-lap 358 sprint car feature.

Hammaker started third and took the lead from lady driver Ashley Cappetta on lap five. Cappetta actually led the first four laps, but a slowly-deflating left rear tire forced her to stop while running fourth with three laps to go.

Once in front, Hammaker led the rest of the way, despite the challenges of bottom-feeder Jeff Rohrbaugh and 11th-starting rim-riding Kevin Nouse over the latter stages of the race. Hammaker’s final margin of victory was .38 seconds.

Crossing fourth and fifth were opening night winner Todd Rittenhouse, Jr. and Friday night Trail-Way winner Isaac Sneeringer. Sixth through tenth were 13th-staring Adrian Shaffer, 12th-starting Matt Campbell, Chandler Leiby, 16th-starting Cody Fletcher, and polesitter Kyle Denmyer.

Heats for the 37 358 Sprinters were won by Ryan Wilson, Rohrbaugh, Todd Reed, and Nouse, with Matt Findley winning the consolation.

Kyle Martin received a tire rub from good buddy Brian Walls while crossing the finish line to win the 20-lap street stock feature. The two leaders got caught up by a lapped car while racing for the win at the line, with Walls settling for second.

Third through fifth were Ryan Smith, early race leader Chris Derr, and 11th-starting Dustin Hollinger.

Heats for the 24 Street Stocks were won by Martin, Brian Walls, and Jason Gessaman.

Next Saturday night, April 25th, it is YORK COUNTY RACING CLUB (YCRC) NIGHT with all card-carry members receiving $2 off general admission. The 410 Sprints and 358 Sprints will be joined by the Central PA Legends in the 3-division show. Race time is 7 PM, with gates opening at 5 PM and hot laps getting underway at 6:30 PM.

Smith Takes Over For Marks To Win Williams Grove Tommy Spring Classic

Paul Miller wins first sportsman show of Grove season

4/17/15

Mechanicsburg – Stevie Smith took over when leader Brent Marks made a miscue in traffic to record the $6,000 payday in Williams Grove Speedway’s Tommy Hinnershitz Spring Classic for sprint cars on Friday night.

The victory was the second for Smith in the Williams Grove event having taken his first in 1998.

In the 20-lap super sportsman feature Paul Miller took the win in convincing style after getting by Russ Mitten early.

Smith started second in the 30-lap Tommy Classic main but couldn’t out pace polesitter Brent Marks when the race began.

Marks led the field into traffic with eight laps recorded and although Smith was able to keep the leader in sight he failed to make a bid for the lead.

The events first caution flag unfurled with 12 laps down when Brian Montieth rolled to a stop on the backchute and by that time sixth starter Greg Hodnett was up to fourth in the field.

Smith challenged Marks on the inside for the first lap when action resumed but after that the leader got away and again began working traffic as the race neared the 10 to go point.

Traffic proved to be Marks’ undoing with nine laps to go when as he tried to put last week’s winner Rodney Westhafer a lap down, the pair made contact in the third corner, resulting in Marks backing into the outside wall.

And with that, a total of three of the top five running cars were sidelined and the edge was taken off the race as Dietrich got caught up in the crunch-up along with Blaney.

Out of the fracas came Smith as the new leader with Hodnett now second followed by Aaron Ott, Lucas Wolfe and Alan Krimes.

Smith streaked away on the restart to cruise to big win over Hodnett, Ott, Krimes and Wolfe.

Sixth through 10th went to Lance Dewease, Cory Haas, Mark Smith, Steve Buckwalter and Pat Cannon.

Heats went to Austin Hogue, Smith and Rick Lafferty with Buckwalter taking the consolation race. Fast time was set by Hodnett with a lap of 16.730 seconds.

Mitten started on the pole of the super sportsman main and led when action began as fourth starter Paul Miller drove up to second.

It took Miller only two laps to muscle by Mitten and get the lead with three down.

And from there he had clear sailing although the race was marred by a red flag with six laps to go when rookie Nate Young vaulted out over the first and second turn fence, escaping injury.

Seventh starter Scott Geesey finished second followed by Mitten, Scott Dellinger and Chad Creswell.

Sixth through 10th went to Frankie Herr, Kenny Edkin, Mike Enders, Bobby Hockenberry and Chad Trout.

Heats went to Geesey, Mitten and Miller.

April 17, 2015 Feature Finishes:

410 sprints, 25 laps: 1. Stevie Smith, 2. Greg Hodnett, 3. Aaron Ott, 4. Alan Krimes, 5. Lucas Wolfe, 6. Lance Dewease, 7. Cory Haas, 8. Mark Smith, 9. Steve Buckwalter, 10. Pat Cannon, 11.

Hodnett Puts On Passing Clinic For Port Sprints Win, Lupfer 2 For 2 In Super Lates

Eric Irvin wins first in econo lates

4/5/15

Port Royal – Greg Hodnett of Thomasville put on a passing clinic on Saturday night at Port Royal Speedway to claim the 25-lap sprint car feature after starting in the 13th spot.

Hodnett became just the second driver in four years to claim posted bonus money for driving to a regular event win from a starting position behind the first five rows. The victory was his 37th at the oval.

Mike Lupfer of Shermansdale made it back-to-back wins in the super late model division by out-racing Dylan Yoder for the 22-lap victory for the second week in a row as well in what was an exciting stock car main.

In the 18-lap econo late model main Eric Irvin of Petersburg drove to his first victory in the division at the track in its two year history while Kurt Zimmeran of Pasadena, Md., won the all american outlaws feature event.

Lucas Wolfe started on the pole of the 410 sprint featur along side Blane Heimbach.

Wolfe took the lead at the start as fourth starter Aaron Ott zipped by Heimbach for second before an early red flag with just two laps completed for a frontstretch flip by Brock Zearfoss, who escaped injury.

Ott failed to challenge Wolfe on the restart with Heimbach, Mark Smith and Mike Wagner following.

The leader entered the rear of the field on the eighth tour of the event with 13th starter Hodnett now up to sixth.

And while Ott stuck with Wolfe without mounting a challenge Hodnett was just mowing down his adversaries as he marched to the front.

With 15 laps to go he had worked his way into fourth behind Smith and with 12 laps to go he was sitting in third but was still a good half-lap back of the leaders.

But that distance just steadily shrunk as Hodnett’s fleet running No. 27 blistered around the speedway and with sixth to go Hodnett was around Ott and closed in on Wolfe as he worked traffic.

Hodnett was scored the leader with five laps to go but Wolfe and he would exchange the lead in the first corner for split seconds as the pair perfected their slide job and recovery skills to see Hodnett go back out in front on the backstretch.

And then again in turn three Wolfe dove in on Hodnett who this time twitched on the cushion as the pair drove up on a lapped car with Wolfe coming away the leader this time only to see a caution flag before the lap could be scored, putting Hodnett back out in front for a restart.

And that clear track was eaten up by Hodnett when action resumed to become the pilots third overall win of the young 2015 season.

Wolfe was second with 10th starter Brent Marks finishing third followed by Ott and Smith.

Sixth through 10th went to Mike Wagner, Davey Sammons, Dylan Cisney, Heimbach and Doug Esh, who started 21st.

Heats went to Heimbach, TJ Stutts and Mike Wagner.

Lupfer started fourth in the late model main and watched as Dylan Yoder set the pace from the second starting position.

Third starter Matt Parks drove in to second at the start and was followed by Lupfer into third with four away.

And the trio then circled the smooth track with Yoder low, Parks up high and Lupfer on the bottom for virtually the remaining distance, each driver working their favored groove.

Slowly but surely Lupfer honed in on Parks, who kept testing the high side’s durability and with six laps to go as the race waged through traffic, he secured second spot to set his sights on the lead.

It took Lupfer three laps to drive down Yoder and make his race-winning pass using his low groove, locked down mastery to record the checkers.

Yoder was second followed by Parks, Mitch Hack and Coleby Frye.

Sixth through 10th went to Andy Haus, Jeff Miller, Tim Wilson, Jeff Rine and Tim Smith Jr.

Heats went to Yoder, Parks and Lupfer.

Todd Snook led the first nine laps of the 18-lap econo late model main before falling out of the event, handing the lead over to Eric Irvin, who had taken second from Jared Fulkroad on the fifth circuit.

Andrew Yoder rode home second in the event but never challenged Irvin for the win.

Ralph Morgan Jr., Shaun Miller and Fulkroad completed the top five with heats going to Morgan and Yoder.

DEWEASE HOLDS OFF ADAM WILT TO CLAIM 38TH CAREER WIN AT LINCOLN;

Steve Fannasy Scores First Lincoln Win in Super Sportsman; Jake Jones Best of 358 Late Models

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 4/11/2015 – “We were far from the best car. Starting position was everything tonight.”

So said former track champ Lance Dewease after claiming his 38th career win at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

Handicapping placed the C.C. Dietz/Conduit Connections/Hess Ornamental Iron Works #14 on the outside pole for the start, and Dewease followed polesitter Billy Dietrich for the first 17 laps before sliding under Dietrich for the lead in turn two of lap 18.

“Billy was better. I just said ‘the heck with it’ and yanked the wing back right before the (lap 17) caution came out and I felt like I got a little better,” said Dewease, “So when the caution came out I just put it all the way back and said ‘Wherever he goes, I’m going the opposite and see if we can get around him. We were fortunate enough to do it.”

The lone caution of the event came out when Danny Dietrich and Mike Bittinger got together on the backstretch while racing for fourth. Bittinger got backwards and came to a stop at the end of the backstretch.

Although he led the rest of the way, Dewease had to hold off a charging Adam Wilt at the end, crossing just .44 seconds ahead of the Pancho’s Racing Products/North York Auto Menders #15.

“I drove my butt off all night,” said Dewease, “We didn’t have a good race car. We keep trying things and can’t get this deal figured out this year.”

“It feels like we’ve run 20 races and ran bad in all of them,” continued Dewease, “But this is actually only our third race. We took advantage of a good starting spot from our misfortunes all year. We just need to get our race car better. But the team just keeps plugging away. We know we’re not good and we just need to keep going at it.”

Freddie Rahmer caught Danny Dietrich for third on the last turn, followed by 11th starting Dietrich and 12th-starting Brian Montieth. Sixth through tenth were early-race leader Billy Dietrich, Robbie Kendall, defending champ Alan Krimes, Cory Haas, and Kyle Moody.

Heats for the 30 410 Sprinters were won by Alan Krimes, Adam Wilt, and Robbie Kendall, with Glenndon Forsythe winning the consolation.

Steve Fannasy started on the outside pole and led every lap of the 25-lap super sportsman feature, becoming the first member of the Fannasy family to grace victory lane in the Pigeon Hills.

Second through fifth were Scott Geesey, Chad Trout, Chad Criswell, and Steve’s brother Jay Fannasy.

Polesitter Russ Mitten started on the pole and ran fourth from the second lap on until suffering mechanical problems on the backstretch of the final lap.

Heats for the 27 Super Sportsman were won by Jay Fannasy, Frankie Herr, and Kevin Nouse, with Eric Walker winning the consolation.

Shermansdale’s Jake Jones became the third driver in three divisions to start on the outside pole and win a feature event on the night, claiming the 20-lap Precise Racing Products Lincoln/Trail-Way season point series opener for the 358 late models.

His win established a new track record for the 358 late models with a time of 5 minutes, 59.65 seconds.

Crossing second .97 seconds behind was polesitter Sam Gallagher, with defending series champ and all-time Lincoln winner Gene Knaub third, Cam Zeigler fourth, and Alan Sagi fifth.

Heats for the 18 358 Late Models were won by Tyler Horst and Travis Mease.

Next Saturday night, April 18th, It will be JOHN H. MYERS & SONS BUILDING & REMODELING SUPPLIES NIGHT featuring the 410 Sprinters once again. The three-division show will also include the Super Sportsman and 358 late models. Race time is 7 PM, with gates opening at 5 PM and hot laps getting underway at 6:30 PM.

Westhafer And Shaffer Win In Williams Grove Sprints

4/10/15

Mechanicsburg – Rodney Westhafer of Mechanicsburg out raced Lucas Wolfe to win Friday night’s 25-lap 410 sprint car feature at Williams Grove Speedway while in the 358 sprint main Adrian Shaffer pulled a last lap pass on Phil Walter to take the victory.

Westhafer started second in the field with Wolfe on the Pole and as it would turn out, Westhafer would lead the entire way for the win, the second of his career at the oval.

The leaders entered the rear of the field with nine laps completed and at that time Wolfe was applying heavy pressure to Westhafer for the lead as Austin Hogue, Glenndon Forsythe and Aaron Ott stayed within striking distance.

But Westhafer, wrenched by Dave Brown Sr. this season and an understudy of Williams Grove veteran Don Kreitz Jr., was fully capable of fending off Wolfe’s tests in traffic.

The pace was hectic on a tacky and tricky surface and Westhafer was relieved to see the races only caution flag unfurl with seven laps to go, clearing his way from traffic.

And when action resumed, Westhafer pulled away on the open track to a convincing win over Wolfe aboard the Allebach No. 5W.

Hogue was third followed by Ott and Cory Haas. Forsythe fell out of the race with six laps to go.

Sixth through 10th went to Greg Hodnett, Brent Marks, Nicole Bower, Daryl Stimeling and Pat Cannon.

Heats went to Don Kreitz Jr. and Wolfe.

Walter and Kody Lehman held the front row for the start of the 358 sprint main and Walter took control at the start as fourth starter Adrian Shaffer zoomed into second.

Walter was up to the challenges of Shaffer on restarts of laps four and eight but when the final 12 laps went non-stop and the leader entered traffic the pressure took on a different tone.

On the fast surface, any cars were hard to pass including those at the rear of the field and when Watler got caught up behind traffic on the final lap, Shaffer capitalized in the second turn to take the victory.

The win was 10th of Shaffer’s career at the oval.

Walter settled for second followed by Kevin Nouse, Kody Lehman and Bill Stine.

Sixth through 10th went to Doug Hammaker, Rich Eichelberger, Scott Fisher, Brad McClelland and Chandler Leiby.

Heats went to Fisher, Lehman and Shaffer.

Food Challenge Event to Morgan Cup Weekend for National Open Benefit

Jakes Wayback Burger to host Outlaw vs. Posse event to raise money.

ST. LOUIS, Mo. – April 9, 2015 - Whether you consider yourself Outlaw or Posse, one thing that sprint car fans can agree on is that a good burger is hard to beat.

Jakes Wayback Burger in Mechanicsburg, serves up one of the best burgers in the area and will host a unique challenge that brings together rivals in the sprint car world. Two drivers from the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series will go head to head with two members of the vaunted Pennsylvania Posse in a knockdown, drag out eating challenge.

“Tim Benner from Jakes has been a great supporter of the Benefit in years past,” explains National Open Benefit event organizer Kolten Gouse. “This year, he wanted to go really big and have an event where fans can come to eat and watch some type of competition between Outlaw & Posse. We came up with this food eating challenge. It’ll take place at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, May 12th. The neat thing is that fans can come by Jakes from 4 until 8 and a portion of the proceeds will go towards the benefit. We’ll have t-shirts, raffle prizes and so much more. I can’t thank Tim and his crew enough for doing this for us.”

Benner is equally excitied.

“We’re looking forward to May 12th and kicking off this season for the National Open Benefit. It's always nice to see the fans and drivers support this wonderful event. Race fans are the best!”

Fans can stop by Jakes Wayback Burger in Mechanicsburg, Pa. at 25 Gateway Drive.

The event serves as a spring board for the Outlaws vs. Posse rivalry in 2015. The team competiting factions will go head to head at Lincoln Speedway on Wednesday, May 13th and then Williams Grove Speedway on Friday, May 15th, and Saturday May 16th. Lisa and Vince Magaro started the National Open Benefit in 2008 shortly after sprint car driver John Westbrook was involved in a vicious crash at Williams Grove Speedway. The proceeds went to help Westbrook and his family with medical expenses.

The money raised from this year’s extravaganza will go to the York County Racing Club Injured Driver's Fund, the World of Outlaws Benevolent Fund, Steve King Foundation, the Kevin Gobrecht Memorial Fund and the Eastern Museum of Motor Racing. Kolten Gouse became involved with the event in 2011.

Five divisions, five twenty-lap features all for an adult admission price of $20

Thunder on the Hill has developed a reputation of presenting unique and different racing events that incorporate different divisions of dirt track racing from near and far. Thunder on the Hill is anything but, the same old thing. The coming season will be no different!

It’s a Double Down for Modifieds Night with an added $1,000 Bonus from Pioneer Pole Buildings for any driver who can Double Down and with both features. It’s a possible $10,000 payday if one driver wins both feature events.

Always a popular show is the Pennsylvania Sprint Speed Week Series when the 410 Sprints and the Modifieds team up on Tuesday night, June 30.

The 410 Sprints will return in the THUNDER CUP for the 410 sprints joined by the 358 Modifieds on Tuesday night, July 28.

Fred Rahmer Promotions Highlights Path Valley Speedway Sprint Car Event with Driver Bonuses and Unique Fan Experiences

SPRING RUN, Pa. (April 5, 2015) – Fred Rahmer Promotions brings the fastest cars on dirt—the 410 Sprint Cars—to Spring Run, Pennsylvania’s Path Valley Speedway, on Sunday, April 26th, giving drivers the opportunity to add to the already lucrative purse with paid qualifying events, bonus money and a unique contingency award program that allows fans to vote for the winner.

“We want to make this as exciting of an event as we can,” Rahmer explained. “I know when I raced, we pushed 100 percent all of the time – but if there was a little more of an incentive or a bonus we’d push 110 percent. It makes it more fun as a competitor and puts on a better show for the fans.”

Kicking off the ‘padding of the purse’ is a $500 bonus to the winner of each 410 Sprint Car qualifying heat event – as long as that winner comes from outside of the front row. If a driver from the front row picks up the victory they will receive $200 for their win, and the additional $300 will be added into the Lawrence Chevrolet Non-Qualifiers event jackpot.

Lawrence Chevrolet of Mechanicsburg, PA presents the Non-Qualifiers event with a guaranteed winner’s share of $500 – but that jackpot could reach as high as $1,700 depending on the results of the qualifying heat events. In 2014, 17-year-old second-generation driver Chandler Leiby earned $1,100 for his non-qualifiers win.

Hoosier Racing Tires gets involved with a 410 Sprint Car contingency bonus that sees six right rear Hoosier Tires being distributed to drivers based on a fan vote, as well as four right rear Hooser tires that will be distributed to 600cc Winged Micro Sprint drivers based on a random drawing.

With a $5,000 winner’s share up for grabs, a stellar field of the nation’s top 410 Sprint Car drivers have already confirmed their attendance, including Greg Hodnett, Lance Dewease, Danny Dietrich, Brent Marks, Cole Duncan, Chad Kemenah, Danny Smith, Greg Wilson, Travis Philo, Shane Helms, Tim Shaffer, and Cody Darrah.

Registration is limited for the 600cc Winged Micro Sprints and entry forms are flying in. Drivers are encouraged to visit www.fredrahmerpromotions.com to download the registration form.

All the action takes place on Sunday, April 26 with pit gates opening at 12:00 noon, grandstand gates opening at 2:00 PM, and hot laps beginning at 6:00 PM with time trials immediately following.

General Admission ticket prices are $20 and children under 12 are admitted FREE. NEW Grandstand Seating with Pit Access tickets are available for $30. General Pit Access is $30.

Series sponsors include: Meltzer’s Trailer Sales, J&S Fabrication, Buck Rubs Gentlemen's Club, C&B Mushrooms, Aran Trading, Lawrence Chevrolet of Mechanicsburg, Hoosier Racing Tire and Miller Brother's Chevrolet.

DEFENDING CHAMPIONS SMITH & RINE SCORE 360 SPRINT CAR & LATE MODEL OPENING DAY VICTORIES; SHOOP & SHULTZ TAKE PRO STOCK & ROADRUNNER WINS

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Defending champion Mark Smith of Sunbury drove to a convincing victory in Saturday’s night’s 25-lap 360 sprint car season opener at Selinsgrove Speedway.

Smith, who scored the prestigious “King of the 360s” victory at the East Bay Raceway in Florida earlier this year, was at the wheel of the Mach 1 Chassis No. 1 for his 11th career win in 358-360 sprint car competition at the track.

Former 10-time champion Jeff Rine of Danville wired the field for his 92nd career feature win at Selinsgrove in the 25-lap super late model feature.

Andrew Shoop of Mifflintown made a last-lap pass to score his second career pro stock win in the division’s 15-lap feature, while Brandon Shultz of Milton held off numerous challenges to record his first career win at the track in the 12-lap roadrunner race.

Selinsgrove Speedway will swing back into action at 6 p.m. Saturday, April 11, with the Empire Super Sprint (ESS) Mach 1 Chassis Spring Fling for 358 and 360 sprint cars paying $3,000 to win. Time Trials will be a part of the qualifying format for the 30-lap feature event. The super late models and pro stocks will also be on the racing card. Track gates will open at 4 p.m.

Polesitter Cody Keller drove into the lead at the start of the sprint car feature. Keller was chased by second-place starter Jason Shultz for the first six laps of the race. The red flag stopped the race on lap six when Mallie Shuster slammed the outside guardrail in turn four and flipped over in his sprint car. Shuster escaped injury.

On the restart, Shultz made a dive to the inside of Keller entering turn one and emerged the race’s new leader out of turn two. Meanwhile, a wheel-to-wheel race unfolded for the third position between fourth-place starter Robbie Stillwaggon and eighth-place starter Mark Smith, with Smith taking over the spot at the halfway point.

On the 17th circuit, a flat tire caused Shultz’s car to go into a wild spin in turn three, narrowly escaping serious damage with the outside wall. Keller inherited the lead again for the lap 18 restart in which Smith made the winning pass using the inside lane in turn three. Smith went on to cross the finish line 3.5 seconds ahead of Keller, Stillwaggon, Davie Franek, and Michael Walter.

Polesitter Jim Yoder and second-place starter Jeff Rine dueled for the lead at the start of the late model feature. Rine powered into the front spot and kept his 2J in front of the pack for the duration of the race even while navigating his way through slower traffic.

Yoder kept Rine in his sights for most of the race only to get held up by the same traffic that Rine was working his way through at breakneck speeds. By the halfway point, Rine stretched his lead to a straightaway. On the 19th circuit, the caution flag waved for a three-car tangle involving Jeremy Ohl, Steve Campbell and Chad Hollenbeck in turns three and four.

When the race resumed, Rine kept his distance from Yoder and the rest of the field as seventh-place starter Dave Zona advanced to third in the final laps. At the finish, Rine was victorious by 3.6 seconds over Yoder, Zona, Hayes Mattern, and Jason Smith.

Outside front row starter Nathan Long pulled into the lead at the start of the pro stock feature. Third-place starter Andrew Shoop held onto the second position for the first lap until polesitter Brad Mitch took over the spot. A torrid battle for the lead unfolded between the top three drivers until the first caution flag of the event unfurled on lap nine for Curtis Lawton.

When the race resumed, so did the war of wheels for the lead between Long, Mitch, and Shoop. On several circuits, the leaders were racing full-tilt and almost three-wide around the oval. The caution flag slowed the field again on lap 14, setting up a chase to the checkered flag. Exiting the final turn, Shoop pulled off a thrilling victory over Long and Mitch by just .22 of a second. Adam Campbell and AJ Stroup completed the top five.

In the night-cap roadrunner race, second-place starter Brandon Shultz, fourth-place starter John Fowler Jr. and third-place starter Bob Bussey put on a precision driving show for all 12 laps of the race. While Shultz edged out the field to lead most of the laps, Fowler was scored as the frontrunner for laps three and five.

Racing off turn four for the checkered flag, the leaders formed a three-wide formation as Shultz scored his first-ever win by the slimmest of margins over Bussey and Fowler. Jeremy Kline and Ed Capper completed the top five.

MONTIETH BLOWS AWAY FIELD IN LINCOLN 410 SPRINT SPRING CHAMPIONSHIP

Rittenhouse claims season opener for 358 sprints

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 4/4/2015 –Saturday night’s 410 Sprint Spring Championship was Brian Montieth’s 46th career Lincoln win, but it may have been the most impressive of them all.

Time trials and an inversion of four put Montieth on the pole for the 30-lap, $5,000-to-win championship event. By the time the first caution of the event came out for a spinning Kyle Moody in turn four of lap 18, there were eight lapped cars between Montieth and second-place Adam Wilt, and only 11 of the 24 starters were still on the lead lap.

“I hate starting up front,” said Montieth upon exiting his Jerry Parrish-owned Auto Locator/Premier Auto Works #21 in victory lane, “I’d rather be chasin’ ‘the rabbit than BE the rabbit.”

Wilt actually brought out the only other caution of the race on lap 28 when he hit the outside wall and spun on turn three.

There was plenty of discussion in the stands on whether, had no caution come out, Montieth would have lapped the entire field. His lead was more than six seconds when the 18th-lap caution flag came out.

The other star of the show was Danny Dietrich, who came from tenth starting spot to finish second at the end, 3.56 seconds behind the winner.

“Scott (Zeller) has this thing motivatin’,” said Montieth, “I can basically run this thing wherever we want. It’s easy when that happens.”

He certainly made it look easy in claiming his second Lincoln win in six days.

“I was watching the scoreboard. I didn’t know how far I was ahead,” continued Montieth, “The more sparks that come out of this thing, the harder I was running. It was just the brakes. I’m hard on them. Scott just laughs at me. I’m going to get in the fence at some point.”

Crossing third through fifth behind Dietrich were defending track champ Alan Krimes, seventh-starting Austin Hogue, and 12th-starting Brent Marks. Sixth through tenth were Cory Haas, Freddie Rahmer, Jimmy Siegel, Moody, and Robbie Kendall.

410 Sprint heats were won by Wilt, Hogue, and Moody. Fast time in time trials over the 25-car field was set by Niki Young with a 1-lap time of 13.421-seconds (100.589 MPH).

Young suffered mechanical problems when he came out for his qualifying event, and scratched for the evening.

Norristown’s Todd Rittenhouse, Jr. started on the outside of the front row and led every lap of the 20-lap season opener for 358 sprint cars.

Polesitter Matt Campbell ran second the first 13 laps before spinning in turn two, turning the runner-up spot over to eighth-starting Doug Hammaker.

A last-lap caution for a spinning Tyler Esh in turn four set up a one-lap dash to the finish, with Rittenhouse crossing .59-seconds ahead of Hammaker for his third career Lincoln 358 sprint car win.

Third through fifth were seventh-starting Jeff Rohrbaugh, lady driver Ashley Cappetta (her best career Lincoln finish), and Chandler Leiby. Brad McClelland came back from an opening lap crash to cross sixth.

Heats for the 31 358 Sprints on hand were won by Ryan Wilson (who dropped from the feature field while running third), Cappetta, and Leiby, with Cody Fairchok winning the consolation.

Lincoln Speedway will switch to night racing next Saturday, April 11th, with a triple-header program to include the 410 Sprints, Super Sportsman, and 358 late models. It will be ARCH Night, with card-carrying members of the Auto Racing Club of Hagerstown getting a $2 discount on admission. Race time will be 7 PM, with gates opening at 5 PM.

Ott, Lupfer And Gramley Open Port Royal Season With Wins

4/4/15

Port Royal – Aaron Ott of East Berlin etched his name in the Port Royal Speedway opening day record books as the sprint car winner on Saturday night, staying in front of Nate Snyder and Lucas Wolfe for the $3,600 payday.

In the super late model main it was defending super late model champion Mike Lupfer of Shermansdale taking a $2,500 victory as sponsored by G N R Excavating and S & R Towing.

And in the 305 sprint main Lewistown’s Nate Gramley won his first career Port Royal feature.

Three attempts at a start of the 410 sprint feature were turned back, first for a tangle between Brad Howard and Blane Heimbach that sent Heimbach backing into the outside second turn wall.

Next it was second starter Dave Ely forcing the start back when as he raced with Ott for the lead in the third corner he lost the handle on the car and spun.

And then Greg Hodnett forced a restart on the next attempt at green when he connected with Mike Wagner as they raced onto the backstretch and careened toward the outside wall.

Ott took control once the race finally got going and entered the rear of the field on the sixth lap with Snyder, Wolfe and Logan Wagner in pursuit.

As the race headed toward the halfway point of the 25 circuit main, the front three cars all drew within striking distance of one another when Wolfe pulled the trigger on Snyder for second deep in the first corner.

In a hair-raising move, Snyder squeezed between the outside turn two wall and the right side of Wolfe’s car in order to slingshot back into second but the fracas between the two allowed Ott to open up a little distance.

Just then, as Snyder and Wolfe began to again reel in Ott, the yellow flag unfurled for a three car incident involving Wayne Dadetto, Curt Stroup and Steve Buckwalter.

On the restart, Ott streaked away from the field and the race that most were expecting for the win disappeared and Ott took the victory by 1.654 seconds.

Snyder finished a career-best second followed by Wolfe, Doug Esh and Mike Wagner.

Sixth through 10th went to Logan Wagner, Ryan Taylor, Davey Sammons, Dylan Cisney and Buckwalter.

Heats went to Wolfe, Ely and Snyder.

Mike Lupfer drew the pole for the start of the 22-lap super late model main and outraced Coleby Frye for the lead as the pair ran down the backstretch to complete the first circuit.

Frye raced Lupfer hard back to the line but Lupfer had the lead and it was a control he would not relinquish for the rest of the distance as he pretty much annihilated the field in the non-stop affair that saw third starter Dylan Yoder finish second as Frye faded late in the event.

In fact, Matt Parks who started eighth got around Frye for third near the finish with Frye ending up fourth and Tim Wilson rounding out the top five.

Sixth through 10th went to Nick Dickson, Andy Haus, Tim Smith Jr., Patrick Bryner and Justin Kann.

Heats went to Yoder and Kann.

A stopped Sean Kirkpatrick stalled the initial start of the 18-lap 305 sprint feature before Gramley could start his run at the front.

On the second circuit Tyler Reaser drove around Gramley in the first corner only to have Gramley wrestle the lead away down the backchute to lead the field back to the stripe.

Shortly after, with four laps recorded, Reaser’s good run came to and end when he stopped on the track, placing Cory Thornton in second.

Gramley would go on to win while defending Port Royal 305 champion Jeff Miller worked the field, taking over second with six laps to go.

A restart with two laps to go bunched the field but Miller was no match for Gramley to the finish.

Third went to Thornton followed by Scott Ellerman and Bill Jones Jr..

Sixth through 10th went to Zach Newlin, Jake Waters, Ken Duke, Cale Reigle and James Pryde.

Heats went to Ellerman and Gramley.

BRIAN MONTIETH BLASTS TO THRILLING SUNDAY NIGHT WIN

Chad Criswell Scores Sportsman Win and Bob Stough Tops Legends

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 3/29/2015 - Brian Montieth lived up to his nickname “The Edge” as he blasted around the outside on the high-banks of Lincoln Speedway during the early stages of Sunday’s 25-lap 410 sprint car main and then used a slide job on Greg Hodnett to assume command with 16 laps complete. Montieth then had to fend off challenges from Hodnett following a late race restart before posting his 45th career Lincoln Speedway feature win.

It was the second Sunday program of the season after bad weather on Saturday forced track owners to utilize the Sunday raindate.

Montieth lined up fifth following a first lap lineup rework following a red flag for a multi car pileup in turn two after Robbie Kendall spun and collected Mike Bittinger, Glenndon Forsythe, Tyler Ross and Scott Fisher.

Polesitter Austin Hogue led lap one before third-starting Hodnett powered by off the second turn to take control.

Hodnett, who won the Icebreaker 30 season opener two weeks ago, set a torrid pace on the top side of the speedway as Hogue, Brent Marks and Montieth were locked in a tight battle for the runner-up spot.

Montieth rocketed from fourth spot into second during the 12th lap after driving by Marks in turn two and then blasting around Hogue to take second.

“I just got lucky,” said the Phoenixville driver after earning $3,200 for the Jerry Parrish owned team. “I knew Greg was going to be tough because he wasn’t happy about that restart lineup and neither was I.”

“The inside row isn’t where you wanted to be. I knew I had to do something. For what the weather is, Fred (Putney) did a good job with the race track. Those guys are working against the weather. If you work outside, you know what I’m talking about. They are doing their best and trying to give us something to race on.”

Hodnett was working heavy lapped traffic just past the midway point of the event as Montieth chewed into his lead lap after lap.

Montieth put the race winning move on Hodnett with a slide job in turn four and emerged as the race leader with 16 laps complete.

Disaster nearly struck Montieth after he made contact with Aaron Ott in turn three, resulting in a caution for Ott.

Montieth entered turn one on the restart low as Hodnett pounded the outside looking to regain the lead. Hodnett stayed with the leader and attempted to slide in front of Montieth’s Auto Locater No. 21 in turn two on lap 22 but Montieth had the momentum and drove off the corner ahead of Hodnett and held on for the feature win.

“It (the track) started to go away and I knew the rubber was going to go away so I was going to make Greg try and go around the outside of me, as weird as that sounds,” said Montieth about the late race restart. “We’re going to try to be better this year as far as my head wise and see what we can do with it.”

“I can’t say much more about this team. A couple of weeks ago was the first I’ve sat in this thing since we last raced in October and they’ve done their homework. They make my life fun.”

Following the top two finishers were Gerard McIntyre, Jr., Hogue and Marks with Freddie Rahmer, Jim Siegel, Niki Young, Mark Smith and Cory Haas completing the top 10 finishers.

Heats for the 32 410 Sprints were won by Brent Marks, Cory Haas, Austin Hogue and Robbie Kendall. The consolation was won by Shane Hoff.

Chad Criswell started on the pole of the 25-lap Super Sportsman feature and held off a hard charging Carmen Perigo, Jr. to score his first career Super Sportsman opening day win.

Criswell held the point early over Doug Dodson and Frankie Herr and held the point through several early race yellows.

Following a lap eight restart, Herr got into the back of Dodson, sending Dodson towards the back of the field and eventually to the pits.

Perigo started sixth and moved into the runner-up spot following the mid-way portion of the race but was unable make a pass on the Martinsburg, W.V. driver.

Perigo, Herr, Steve Wilbur and Scott Geesey finished in the top five followed by Kevin Nouse, Mike Enders, Scott Dellinger, Paul Miller and Bobby Hockenberry.

Mike Enders, Carmen Perigo, Jr. and Scott Geesey were heat race winners for the 27 Super Sportsman pitside. The consolation went to Tom Wyckoff.

Bob Stough came out on top of a thrilling 15-lap Central PA Legends feature after exchanging the top spot with Chad Earnst several times over the final five circuits.

Stough took the win over Earnst, 11th starting Lucas Montgomery, Bill Diehl and early race leader Justin Mitchell.

Mason Chaney and Lucas Montgomery were the two heat winners for the 24 Central PA Legends.

Lincoln Speedway returns to action Saturday night, April 4th with the Spring Championship for the 410 Sprints, paying $5,000 to win, $325 to start. Also on the program will be the 358 sprints. Race time will be 6 PM, with gates opening at 4 PM.

Dietrich Wins Second Williams Grove Opening Day Event, Dickson Wires Late Models

3/27/15

Mechanicsburg –Danny Dietrich of Gettysburg scored his second career Williams Grove Speedway Opening Day sprint car victory on Friday night, taking a $3,600 victory over Steve Buckwalter.

In the super late model main, Nick Dickson of McVeytown wired the field for a 20-lap victory over Gary Stuhler.

Polesitter Mark Smith took the lead over Aaron Ott at the start of the 25-lap 410 sprint main with Dietrich holding down third spot.

The first 20 laps of the race went non-stop with Ott withdrawing on the 15th circuit amid a hectic race at the front between Smith, Dietrich, Alan Krimes and Buckwalter

Dietrich was able to sneak into the lead at the line over Smith to score the 16th circuit before Smith stuffed his car back out in front in the first corner with Krimes in third.

Dietrich was one of the few cars making the outside groove work to his advantage and he used it to retake control with seven laps to go as Buckwalter got by Krimes for third.

Buckwalter motored by Smith on the 19th tour as 17th starter Brian Montieth entered the fray after catching the fan’s eyes with a ripping run around the topside from the rear.

The races only caution flag unfurled with four laps to go when Krimes fell out of contention, breaking in the second corner.

The race that many thought may develop between Montieth and the leaders on the restart never materialized over the final two miles as Dietrich drove away at the new green for his second lidlifter win having taken his first in 2012.

The victory was Dietrich’s 10th at the historic oval.

Buckwalter rode home second followed by Montieth, Mark Smith and 12th starter Greg Hodnett.

Sixth through 10th went to Lance Dewease, Brent Marks, Freddie Rahmer, Lucas Wolfe and Cory Haas.

Heats for the 23-car field went to Krimes, Dietrich and Wolfe.

Dickson etched his name in the Williams Grove super late model record books for the first time in his career by holding off Gary Stuhler the entire way in the late model main.

Jeff Rine rode third for the entire distance as did Jerry Bard in fourth.

York’s Rick Eckert started 10th in the field and drove up to fifth at the finish.

Sixth through 10th went to Jason Covert, Kyle Hardy, Dylan Yoder, Gene Knaub and Ross Robinson.

Heats for 17 cars in action went to Dickson and Eckert.

Port Royal Speedway

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

March 26 And 28 Port Royal Programs Cancelled, New Practice Slated April 1

Starting Times April 4 & 11 Moved To 5 PM

3/26/15

Port Royal – Impending afternoon rain has forced Port Royal Speedway to cancel the Thursday, March 26 practice session slated for tonight from 6 – 9 pm.

With afternoon and late day rains and a storm front predicted on a work night when the practice was slated, it seemed the most prudent move was to call off the practice in plenty of time for everyone involved to plan accordingly.

Beyond that, the extreme harsh winter temperatures expected Saturday in the area has also forced officials to again cancel the planned season opener slated for Saturday night, March 28.

Again, with nighttime lows both Friday and Saturday nights slated for around 20 and a high of 36 forecast for Saturday, prudence has dictated the move in an effort to protect the new racing surface, the racers and their equipment and the fans themselves.

Thus, the 2015 Port Royal season opener is now planned for next Saturday, April 4 with a moved up starting time of 5 pm.

And another attempt at a practice session will be made, next Wednesday night, April 1, from 6 – 9 pm. The practice will be open to any division slated to appear on the 2015 schedule of events.

On Saturday, April 4, racing action at 5 pm will include 410 sprints, super late models and the first appearance of the year by the River Valley Builders 305 sprints under the PASS banner.

April 4 will be Easter Night at the speedway with the first 200 youth entering the main grandstand receiving a free chocolate Easter rabbit. In addition, a youth egg scramble will be held in the infield just prior to the heat races.

Also at the opener, the first 600 fans entering the main grandstand will receive a free 2015 schedule magnet courtesy of Juniata Beverage.

The 410 sprint winner’s share for the opener is $3,600 including $100 of which is posted in honor of late speedway champion Richard “Dick” “Pete” Swarmer as posted by his son Steve.

The super late models will compete for $2,000 to win in the opener.

All division’s heats and feature events will find starting grids set by draw.

Williams Grove Opens with 410 Sprints And Super Late Models March 27

3/22/15

Mechanicsburg –Williams Grove Speedway will open the 2015 racing season this Friday night, March 27 at 7:30 pm with a good old fashioned Williams Grove twinbill of Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprints and super late models.

Fireworks will help bring in the season of professional, local dirt track auto racing at Williams Grove.

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

Adult general admission for the prestigious season opener is set at just $15 with youth ages 12 – 20 admitted for just $10.

The Williams Grove portion of the 50/50 drawing on the night will be donated to Wounded Warriors.

Last year, Gerard McIntyre Jr. held off the furious charges of Stevie Smith and Brian Montieth to win the 2014 season opener for the 410 sprints on March 28.

Since 1939 when Tommy Hinnershitz won the inaugural race at the famed facility, so many highly recognized names and even some not so much have scored the prestigious first Williams Grove race of the year.

Well-knowns or on their way up the ladder at the time of their victories were the likes of Jan Opperman, AJ Foyt, Ted Horn and Hinnershitz.

Kasey Kahne, destined for bigger and better things in todays NASCAR arena, took the opener back in 2000.

But perhaps lesser-known at the time or even unique names like Kevin Collins, Brian Paulus, Marlett Naill and Gig Stephens have also taken that famous first checkered flag of the year at Williams Grove.

Since the dawning of the decade in 2010, opening day winners at Williams Grove have been: Fred Rahmer, 2010 and 2013; Stevie Smith, 2011; and Danny Dietirch, 2012.

Greg Hodnett, the defending Williams Grove track champion, has a pair of opening day victories to his credit at the track, coming back in 2002 and in 2004 and in fact the Thomasville speedster has already won in the area this season.

Williams Grove Speedway will return to action on April 3 at 7:30 pm with a program of 410 sprints and super sportsman.

The kickoff of the 2015 Saturday Night Series featuring the super sportsman is slated for Saturday, May 2.

FRED RAHMER BRINGS 410 SPRINT CAR RACING BACK TO PATH VALLEY SPEEDWAY FOR AN EXCITING THREE RACE SERIES

SPRING RUN, PA (March 15, 2015) – After an inaugural 2014 Pennsylvania Sprint Car Speed Week event that boasted a standing-room-only crowd and an equally impressive car count, Fred Rahmer Promotions returns to Spring Run, PA’s Path Valley Speedway, for an expanded three event series featuring 410 Sprint Cars and 600cc Micro Sprints.

With a $5,000 top prize up for grabs -- plus additional driver incentives and bonuses -- you can expect the area's best Sprint Car racers to be on hand when the first event of the 2015 season kicks off on Sunday, April 26.

The 25th running of Pennsylvania Sprint Car Speed Week stops at the Path Valley Speedway on Sunday, June 28 with the 410 Sprint Cars and 600cc Micro Sprints co-headlining the popular event. Close to the heart of Rahmer -- who holds 30 PA Speed Week victories and 13 PA Speed Week Championships -- this event will prove to be nothing short of spectacular.

The final event of the Fred Rahmer Promotions season takes place on Saturday, October 17. Along with a regular program of 410 Sprint Cars and 600cc Micro Sprints, a special “Fans Choice Feature” will take place where the winner will take home an additional $6,000 top prize. Drivers must compete in all three Fred Rahmer Promotion events to be eligible for the “Fans Choice Feature.”

Each event will follow a traditional Pennsylvania Speed Week event format and rules. Drivers will participate in time trials, in which a blind draw will determine the time trial order, followed by qualifying heat races and a B-Main event. The A-Main will be lined up by time trials with an inversion of four, six or eight.

While the racing will be hot and heavy on the 1/4-mile bullring, off-track accommodations have been greatly improved from the previous season. Rahmer, along with Perkasie, PA's Tru-Line Contractors, has spent much of the winter constructing new grandstands that include pit access and additional restrooms.

Steve Post, Motor Racing Network's NASCAR Pit Reporter and co-host of the popular Winged Nation radio program, will once again provide the call of the night's racing action with his ever entertaining play-by-play announcing, including various fan giveaways and prizes.

One of the more interesting incentives for the 600cc Micro Sprint competitors is the opportunity to win a test session aboard one of the Fred Rahmer-owned 410 Sprint Cars. Two opportunities will be available, one to the winner of the series Points Champion, and the second to a random driver who has participated in all three events in the series.

Registration is limited for the 600cc Micro Sprints. Drivers are encouraged to download the registration form on www.fredrahmerpromotions.com

It all starts on Sunday, April 26 with pit gates opening at 12:00 noon, grandstand gates opening at 2:00 PM, and hot laps beginning at 6:00 PM with time trials immediately following.

General Admission ticket prices are $20 and children under 12 are admitted FREE. NEW Reserved Grandstand Seating with Pit Access tickets are available for $30. General Pit Access is $30

Series sponsors include: Tru-Line Contracting, Buck Rubs Gentlemen's Club, C&B Mushrooms, Aran Trading, and Miller Brother's Chevrolet.

GREG HODNETT SCORES LINCOLN SPEEDWAY ICEBREAKER 30 SEASON OPENER Mar 15, 2015, 21:47 Email this article Printer friendly page

Hodnett Takes Home $4,000 payday in 2015 Season-Opener

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 3/15/2015 – After being forced to cancel its first three scheduled races of the 2015 racing season due to snow and cold weather, Lincoln Speedway officially kicked off the racing season Sunday afternoon, March 15th, with Greg Hodnett surviving a marathon Icebreaker 30 feature event to add his name to opening day winners at the Pigeon Hills oval.

Using the Sunday rain date after a Saturday rainout, a large crowd of fans came out to watch the 410 Sprinters in action as Hodnett missed several early crashes and held on to score the win in the 30 lap feature that took well over an hour to complete.

“I was just in survival mode,” stated the Spring Grove driver after earning $4,000 for his 28th career Lincoln Speedway feature win. “The track was very tricky, obviously due to circumstances…but the guys did a great job with the car.”

“They freed up it and I knew I was going to be free pretty much the whole race but that was the only way that I figured we could make any headway so it worked out for us.”

Hodnett’s win moved him into a tie with Van May for 10th place on Lincoln Speedway’s all-time track win list.

The first feature of 2015 took four starts to get an official lap in the books.

Niki Young flipped in turn one on the initial green flag. A second red flag came on the ensuing restart when front row starters Freddie Rahmer and Chase Dietz tangled on the frontstrech. Last year’s opening day winner Adam Wilt was also caught up in the crash.

Tim Glatfelter brought out the red flag on the third restart, flipping on the front stretch after contact with Chris Knopp and Scott Fisher.

Billy Dietrich finally grabbed the top spot when the first lap was scored, but, a yellow for Brian Montieth, who sat sideways off turn two slowed action with three laps complete.

Billy Dietrich continued to set the pace over Hodnett, who originally started sixth on the grid when another yellow for Rahmer slowed the pace once again after seven laps were scored.

Hodnett shot under Billy Dietrich entering turn one on the restart, emerging as the race leader before Aaron Ott hit the wall in turn two resulting in a fuel stop.

Billy Dietrich rolled to a stop on the restart as Hodnett continued to set the pace when another yellow flag appeared with 12 laps down for a stopped Fisher in turn four.

Montieth spun on the restart bringing out the final caution of the day.

The final 18 laps went non-stop as Hodnett drove the Mike Heffner owned, Lelands.com, Trone Outdoor, Eagle Steel No. 27 sprinter away from the field.

Hodnett was slowed up late in the event when he caught the rear of the field but maintained a near straightaway advantage when he crossed under the checkered flag to officially score the first win in Central Pennsylvania this season.

“The 51 (Rahmer) and 44 (Dietz) were kind of bouncing around jockeying for position even before we took off so it was inevitable to happen because it’s a pretty narrow race track down here on the front straightaway…unfortunately those guys got tied up in it and it worked out for us and moved us up a row,” said Hodnett. “It wasn’t the raciest I’ve ever been but we just kind of bided our time and made sure we didn’t do anything stupid to take ourselves out of contention.”

“Everyone that helps on this car did a nice job and I’m just fortunate to be standing here. Normally here I’m just not that good here. We just lucked out. Hopefully it’s not a bad omen because sometimes when you win early in the year, you get to struggling in the middle and end of the year. Hopefully that doesn’t happen and we can keep this thing going.”

Kyle Moody raced home in the runner-up spot ahead of Robbie Kendall, Brent Marks and 20th starting Cory Haas with defending track champion Alan Krimes sixth ahead of Montieth, Gerard McIntyre, Jr., Danny Dietrich and Cole Duncan.

Heat races for the 30 410 Sprints pitside were won by Mike Bittinger, Chris Knopp and Bill Dietrich. Last year’s opening day winner Adam Wilt won the consolation.

Lincoln Speedway will switch to night racing next Saturday, March 21st, with a 410 Sprint and 358 late model doubleheader. Race time will be 6 PM, with gates opening at 4 PM.

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

Port Royal Cancels March 20/21 Weekend

3/15/15

Port Royal – Port Royal Speedway has been forced to cancel its already pushed back season opening weekend slated for March 20 and 21.

Continued rock-hard frozen ground and extremely poor grounds and track surface conditions have made the cancellation of the Friday practice session and Saturday opener a necessity.

“It’s clear as we are now a week away from what we had hoped to be the opener that there is just no way we can even think about using the grounds or track in a week,” Port Royal Promoter Steve O’Neal said.

This means the season opener is now slated for Saturday evening, March 28 at 6 pm when the 410 sprints, super late models and the Gray’s Auto & Towing 355-econo late models are again on the schedule.

March 28 will also be Camera & Autograph Night at the track when the purchase of a general admission ticket will gain fans access to the pit area for a limited time prior to warm ups.

The 410 sprint winner’s share for the opener recently increased from $3,500 to $3,600 in honor of late speedway champion Richard “Dick” “Pete” Swarmer.

Swarmer’s son Steve, a former competitor himself, has posted the $100 increase in honor of the elder Swarmer’s opening day victory some 50 years ago, in 1965.

The super late models will also compete for an increased payday in the opener, set at $2,000 to win.

Adult general admission for the show will be $15 with students ages 12 – 18 admitted for just $7.

General admission gates will open at 4 pm.

The possibility of a practice session at the track is being evaluated for the week of March 30 with an announcement regarding a date and time in the offing.

Season seats and passes remain on sale at the speedway office as well. Office hours are held Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays with times available on the oval’s website.

TRAIL-WAY, “MOTORAMA” FOUNDER ARMIN H. HOSTETTER LEAVES LEGACY AFTER PASSING AT THE AGE OF 87

The Central Pennsylvania racing community lost an icon of the sport with the passing of Armin H. Hostetter at the age of 87 on Thursday, January 29th.

Best known as the founder of Trail-Way Speedway and the famous annual “Motorama” show in Harrisburg, Armin actually grew up as a multisport athlete that excelled in every sport.

As a baseball player, he was good enough to try out for the Pittsburgh Pirates. As a football player, he played semi-pro football with the York White Rose and Chambersburg Cardinals.

Despite his accomplishments in other sports, it was the motorcycles on the family farm that Armin loved the most. Following the footsteps of his two brothers, Armin took up motorcycle racing; He competed at such well-known tracks as Williams Grove and Langhorne, but among his career highlights was racing for the Norton factory on the beach at the Daytona 200.

His short racing career brought him back to the family farm just outside McSherrystown, which he bought from his parents and established a club for people who had their own off-road motorcycles. He built some tracks to give the club members a place to ride.

Originally cut out for sulky horse racing, one track was later made bigger for cycles and cars. It became what is now known as Trail-Way Speedway, which first starting racing programs in 1971.

There were weekly shows of A.M.A. motorcycle flat track and motocross racing. As the years progressed, Armin also promoted races ranging from go-karts and midgets to late models and 410 sprint cars. In recent years, Trail-Way has hosted the 358 sprint cars as its main division, along with regular appearances by 358 late models, three different divisions of micro-sprints, classic cars, limited stocks, and, of course, A.M.A. flat track racing.

The list of drivers who have learned to race at Trail-Way is a “Who’s Who” of eastern dirt track racing. In the sprint car division alone, Brad McClelland and rising stars Brent Marks, Danny Dietrich, Chad Criswell, Logan Schuchart, and Kyle Moody cut their racing teeth at Trail-Way. The careers of the late Kevin Gobrecht and Lucas Wolfe began at the track on “the farm.”

As if farming 500 acres and weekend racing wasn’t enough, Armin also founded the “Motorama,” now held every February at the Pennsylvania Farm Show complex. The event was first held in 1978, and has become one of the largest shows of its kind in the East. The show fills the entire one-million square feet of the complex with live indoor racing and several rooms of automotive show entertainment. The indoor racing, headlined by Arenacross, has become a “must see” event for racing fans.

Despite turning the bulk of promotional duties over to his sons Barry, Brad, and Perry in recent years, Armin remained active at the speedway until the time of his death. He especially enjoyed greeting people from the front porch of his house (located beside the pit entrance) as they arrived at the speedway.

Armin’s many accomplishments were recognized with induction into the York County Racing Club Hall of Fame in 2010.

But Armin’s accomplishments didn’t end there. He also organized the York Adams Elementary Football League (serving as its president and historian), was a past president of the Rotary Club International of Hanover, and served on the Littlestown School Board. Other community involvement included lifetime membership of the Hanover Church of the Brethren and membership in the McSherrystown Fish and Game and the Benevolent and Protective Order of the Elks.

Armin was the loving husband of Frances (Barnes) Hostetter, who passed in 1995, and is survived by companion Fern Hess; sons Barry (and wife Ella), Bradley (and his wife Cindy), and Perry

(and companion Mary Rickrode), all of Hanover; five grandchildren; and five great-grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his seven brothers and sisters.

Memorial contributions may be made to the York County Racing Club Injured Drivers Fund, 568 Yale Street, York, PA 17403; or to the York Adams Elementary Football League (Y.A.E.F.L.), P.O. Box 1254, Hanover, PA 17331.

Those who “believe” know that Armin Hostetter will continue to oversee the operation of “the farm.” He was laid to rest at Hostetter’s Meeting House Church Cemetery, located adjacent to the Hostetter farm and within sight of his beloved Trail-Way Speedway.

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 2/8/13 – Only a two-inch coating of snow stands between Lincoln and opening day on Saturday afternoon, February 21st.

The “Icebreaker 30" for 410 Sprint Cars will kick off the 2015 outdoor racing season in the Northeast, and pay $4,000 to win. Action begins at 2:00 p.m., with gates opening at noon.

In fact, the “Icebreaker 30” is the first in a “Four for Four” series to open the season, with the first four Lincoln shows going 30 laps and paying $4,000 to win. All four programs begin at 2:00 p.m.

Celebrating its 63rd year, Lincoln Speedway continues a tradition of offering the world’s toughest, most competitive Saturday night sprint car racing. Super sprints have comprised the main class of racing at Lincoln Speedway since 1965, and the “410” sprints are featured in 29 of Lincoln's 35 race dates this year.

Exciting racing has become the trademark of Lincoln’s other “regular” division--the “358” sprint cars, which will be in action 19 times in 2015.

The super sportsman will make five appearances in the Pigeon Hills, culminating with the prestigious “Lawrence Chevrolet Sportsman 100” on Saturday, September 19th. The popular Central Pennsylvania Legends will make 11 stops in the Pigeon Hills this season. And the 358 late models will make three stops at Lincoln as part of a nine-race Trail-Way/Lincoln point series sponsored by Precise Racing Products.
