Hinnershitz Legacy Honored Friday At Williams Grove

4/11/21

Mechanicsburg – This Friday’s All Stars sprint car show at Williams Grove Speedway is meant to honor its original winner. He was the first. He had one of the most recognizable names in motorsports history dating back to the 1930s.

On tap at Williams Grove on Friday will be the annual Tommy Hinnershitz Memorial Spring Classic, honoring the late, great racer from Oley that holds the distinction of winning the first ever race held at the brand new Williams Grove Speedway back on Sunday, May 21, 1939.

Hinnershitz won the race in what was called a “hard and heady” event to best the famed Joie Chitwood. Hinnershitz’s death in 1999 left behind an auto-racing legacy worthy of note by any standards.

During his 30-year career spanning 1930-1960, “The Fying Dutchman,” as he was known, amassed seven AAA/USAC Eastern Big Car Championships, taking titles in 1949, 1950, 1951, 1952, 1955, 1956 and in 1959.

He had garnered 103 total AAA/USAC feature wins with 19 taking place at Williams Grove. Hinnershitz set 43 AAA track records during his tenure and would compete in three Indianapolis 500s.

At the time of his death, the 87-year old was ranked second behind Steve Kinser on the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame’s Top Sprint Car Drivers of All Time list.

Back in 1939, when Hinnershitz passed Chitwood for the lead in that maiden race at Williams Grove, the duel was billed as “one of the most thrilling bits of driving ever witnessed on a Pennsylvania speedway.”

It was said that when Hinnershitz passed Chitwood, “the Big Chief was met with acclaim from the crowd.”

And Williams Grove will bestow even more worthy acclaim in the Big Chief’s honor this Friday night.

Adult general admission for the April 16 racing program is set at $25 with students ages 13-20 admitted for just $10.

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

Saturday, May 1 (7:30PM) 410 Sprints + 358 Sprints (Summer Series) and Penn-Mar Vintage

Abbottstown, PA (April 10, 2021) – After starting the season with six different winners in six races, Tim Shaffer became the first repeat winner of 2021 at Lincoln Speedway on Saturday night. Shaffer lined up sixth and avoided a late race mishap to take the checkered flag and the $4,000 prize.

Scott Fisher and Aaron Bollinger shared the front row for the start of the 30-lap feature. Bollinger, who is in his sophomore 410 season and just turned 21 last week, had the lead coming out of turn 2. Fisher was in second and Dylan Norris was running third down the back stretch. Shaffer got by both Fisher and Norris in turn 4 to drive from sixth to second on the first lap.

The yellow flag came out on lap 2 for Matt Campbell who got turned around in turn 1. Campbell went to the pits and the team made repairs in the two-minute work time to get the car back out on the track.

Bollinger led Shaffer, Norris, Tim Glatfelter and Fisher to the cone for the single-file restart.

Shaffer hung with Bollinger on the start and was using the bottom with Bollinger ripping the high line around the track. Chase Dietz entered the top 5 on lap 3.

Bollinger continued to dominate on the high side as he approached lapped traffic on lap 6. As Bollinger worked his way by lapped cars, he was able to maneuver anywhere on the track.

Shaffer stuck with Bollinger and was on his bumper on lap 10. Dietz moved up to third on lap 11 from his eighth place starting spot.

Bollinger put two lapped cars between him and Shaffer on lap 15, allowing Dietz to close in on Shaffer for second.

Bollinger and Dietz got together in turn 4 on lap 22 bringing out the red flag. Bollinger jumped the cushion in turn three, slowing him down. Dietz had already committed to a slider and collected Bollinger as he slid back up the track.

Shaffer inherited the lead and led Glatfelter, Norris, Tim Wagaman and Freddie Rahmer on the restart.

Wagaman was working the top to try and take third from Norris. While the two battled, Freddie got by Wagaman for fourth. Tyler Ross followed making his way into the top five after starting tenth.

The white flag waved just as Shaffer was catching the tail end of the field. Shaffer won his second feature of the season by 2.561 seconds over Glatfelter. Norris held on for a season best third place finish. Freddie finished fourth and Ross completed the top five.

Heat race winners were Glenndon Forsythe, Dylan Norris and Aaron Bollinger. Three cars advanced 11 positions in the feature, Freddie Rahmer (15th to 4th), Billy Dietrich (20th to 9th) and Alan Krimes (24th to 13th). Danny Dietrich, who pulled a double, racing at both Port Royal and Lincoln on Saturday, advanced 10 positions from 21st to 11th.

Hayden Miller Scores First Career 358 Sprint Victory

Hayden Miller is in the midst of his second season running 358 sprint cars after making the jump from micros. Not only did Miller win his first feature in the division, he wired the field leading from the drop of the green to the checkered flag.

Miller shared the front row with veteran racer, and last week’s winner, Jeff Rohrbaugh. Kody Hartlaub got by Rohrbaugh on the start to take second with Miller holding on to the lead. Steve Owings got by Hartlaub at the line to take second on the first lap.

The caution came out on lap 1 when Tyler Esh spun out in turn 2 nearly landing on his side. Esh collected Ashley Cappetta. Cappetta used her two minutes of work time and rejoined the field.

Miller led Owings, Hartlaub, Rohrbaugh and Cody Fletcher on the restart. Miller got a good jump on the restart and then the red flag came out on lap 2. Brett Strickler took a wild ride in turn 4.

Fletcher and Zane Rudisill battled for fifth as they swapped fifth and sixth back and forth multiple times each lap.

Owings was closing in on Miller as they approached lapped traffic when Brett Wanner brought out the yellow flag on lap 8. Wanner was trying to exit the track in turn 2, but stopped on the edge of the ramp.

Miller paced the field ahead of Owings, Hartlaub, Rohrbaugh and Rudisill for the restart.

Owings tried to get his nose under Miller in turn 1 but Miller held the top spot.

The red flag flew again on lap 10 when Jon Stewart got upside down in turns 3 and 4. It was a rough night for Stewart. In addition to flipping in the feature, Stewart caught on fire due to a loose fuel line during hot laps.

Once again Owings looked to the inside of Miller on the restart to no avail.

Rudisill passed Rohrbaugh and Hartlaub on the back stretch to get to move from fifth to third in one lap.

Rudisill used the top to reel in Owings. Owings hit the guardrail on the inside of turn 2 allowing Rudisill to close in for the pass. The two raced side-by-side at the line with Owings holding the slight advantage. Rudisill was better in turns 1 and 2 while Owing’s car was better in 3 and 4.

Dylan Orwig brought out the yellow flag on lap 17 when he spun out in turn 4.

The top five for the restart were Miller, Rudisill, Owings, Hartlaub and Fletcher.

Rudisill looked to the outside of Miller but he took the line away to hold the lead. Rudisill was on Miller’s bumper with two laps to go but couldn’t make the pass.

Miller won his first 358 sprint car feature by .264 seconds over Rudisill. Owings crossed the line third and Hartlaub finished fourth. Fletcher completed the top five.

358 sprint car heat races were won by Jeff Rohrbaugh, Kody Hartlaub and Jordan Strickler.

Scott Schaffer Wins Outlaw Vintage Feature

Wes Cassel and Dave Dissinger started on the front row of the 20-lap feature for the Outlaw Vintage Racing Series. Cassel took the lead when the green flag dropped.

Mark Hahn and Dissinger raced side-by-side for second with Hahn taking the spot. Hahn stayed with Cassel as they closed in on lapped traffic.

Scott Schaffer made his way to third from his eighth starting spot and was closing in on the leaders when the caution came out on lap 6 when Jeff Paulson got backwards in turn 2.

Cassel led Hahn, Schaffer, Dissinger and Dingo Kirkwood on the restart. Kirkwood and Dissinger battled for fourth with Kirkwood taking the spot.

Schaffer worked his way by Hahn for second. Lapped traffic came into play allowing Schaffer to get by Cassel for the lead. Schaffer pulled away and parked his #77s in victory lane. Cassel crossed the line second and Hahn finished third. Kirkwood was fourth and Paulson rebounded from his early race spin to complete the top five.

Next Saturday, April 17, Lincoln Speedway is back in action with 410 Sprint Cars (time trials) and 358 Sprint Cars for the 18th Annual Weldon Sterner Memorial. Racing starts at 7PM with pit gates opening at 4:30PM and grandstand gates opening at 5PM.

SATTERLEEE WINS ULMS LATE MODELS ON RECORD-BREAKING NIGHT;
MILLS OUTDRIVES 40-CAR FIELD FOR 305 SPRINT CAR THRILLER;
 

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Gregg Satterlee of Rochester Mills scored the super late model season opener at Selinsgrove Speedway in Saturday night’s high-speed 30-lap United Late Model Series-sanctioned event on Performance Food Group Night.

The $3,000 victory was the third of Satterlee’s career at the Snyder County half-mile oval and third overall this season at the wheel of the Keyser Manufacturing No. 22.

Defending track champion Jeff Rine of Danville set a new one-lap late model track record in qualifying with a 18.536 lap time.

Justin Mills of Bloomingburg, N.Y., came out the victor of a multi-car duel in the 20-lap Apache Tree Service PASS/IMCA 305 sprint car main event.

After being shut out of Victory Lane last year, Keith Bissinger of Orangeville scored his 58th career roadrunner feature in the division’s 12-lap season opening race.

The amount of $2,308 was raised from a driver helmet collection Saturday night to benefit driver Bryan Bernheisel who was injured in a late model accident at Williams Grove Speedway March 26.

Next on Selinsgrove Speedway’s 75th anniversary schedule will be the Ray Tilley Classic for the Lelands.com 410 sprint cars and super late models at 6 p.m. Sunday, April 25. The 30-lap sprint car tribute race sponsored by Icon Legacy Custom Modular Homes will pay $5,088 to win. The super late models will compete in a 25-lap main event paying $3,000 to win. Track gates will open at 4 p.m.

Front row starters Max Blair and Gregg Satterlee, both late model feature winners in central Pennsylvania this season, drag raced for the lead into the turn one with Satterlee getting the edge. Fourth-place starter Jeff Rine closely trailed the leaders in third.

The first caution flag waved on lap 11 when Larry Neiderer’s machine fell off the pace. On the ensuing restart, several cars collided in turns one and two but were able to restart.

Satterlee held the lead while storming around the smooth, fast half-mile in the 18-second lap bracket. For most of the race, Blair kept the leader in his sites while Rine struggled to catch them in third.

On a lap 14 restart, Rine, eighth-place starter Dylan Yoder, and sixth-place starter Mason Zeigler raced three-wide for the third spot while Satterlee and Blair continued to lead the way at the halfway point.

D. Yoder eventually settled into the third position after a spirited battle with Rine and Zeigler. The final caution flag regrouped the field on lap 23 when Kenny Trevitz fell off the pace.

At the finish, Satterlee was victorious over Blair, D. Yoder, Rine, and seventh-place starter Dan stone.

Polesitter Christian Rumset powered into the lead at the start of the 305 sprint car feature. Rumset was chased by third-place starter Justin Mills and second-place starter Dakota Sweigart.

The race was stopped on lap six when 19th-place starter Kassidy Kreitz hit the frontsretch wall and rolled over in her 69K. Kreitz was not injured. When the race resumed, a duel for the lead unfolded between Rumsey and Mills for several laps.

On the 13th circuit, Mills made the winning pass using the inside lane off turn four but not without being challenged the rest of the way. On the final lap, the red flag unfurled when Jared Zionkowski’s car burst into flames. Zionkowski escaped without injury.

For the one-lap chase to the checkered flag, Rumsey made a last-ditch effort to pass Mills for the lead and win to no avail. Mills scored a narrow victory over Rumsey, sixth-place starter Doug Dodson, seventh-place starter Ken Duke, and Sweigart.

Outside front row starter Keith Bissinger took the lead on the initial start of the roadrunner feature. On a second attempt Bissinger led original third-place starter Jake Jones at the drop of the green flag.

On each subsequent restart, Bissinger and Jones pulled away from the field in a showdown of past champions. The race was stopped on lap seven when Scott Dunham struck the inside backstretch guardrail. He was not injured.

When the race restarted, Bissinger kept Jones at bay for the victory. Seventh-place starter Nate Romig finished in third with a strong showing, followed by Terry Kramer and Adam Campbell in the top five.

Anthony Macri Earns First Win of 2021; Bright goes two in a row as does Hart

PORT ROYAL, PA – Anthony Macri grabbed the lead early and drove off
from there winning the 25-lap Sprint car feature in dominating fashion
Saturday night at Port Royal Speedway.

In other action, it was Alex Bright winning the USAC East Coast 360
Sprint feature, and Devin Hart scoring his second straight limited
late model feature win.

Macri, of Dillsburg, earned $4,000 for his first win of the season
that came by an impressive 7.4-seconds in the non-stop main event for
the Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Cars.

“I was getting worried in lapped traffic,” Macri said. “They were
starting to not play as nice. The first five or six lapped cars just
fell my way. They went the other way and I was able to stay on the
top.”

Macri was Port Royal’s leading feature winner last year, but was
looking for a little more speed so far this season.

“The car hasn’t felt like it was last year in the first couple of
races,” Macri said. “We just kept working and working. I’d say
tonight’s the first night where I felt we were as good as we were last
year.”

Macri is primed for next week’s Keith Kauffman Classic paying $10K
sanctioned by the All Stars.

“It’s definitely a confidence boost going into next week,” Macri said.
“When we first got here, I seen the track wasn’t dug up as much as it
was the weeks before. I knew it would eventually come back to this,
but I didn’t think it would be that close to the wall. It played into
my favor. I like this kind of track. Anybody can go around here in 15
seconds. This is the Port Royal I like.”

“I have all the confidence in the world in Jim (Shuttlesworth) and my
guys. I just have to do my job. I’d say we can beat them.”

Gerard McIntyre Jr. started on the pole and grabbed the lead as Blane
Heimbach took second. Macri started sixth, but was up to third in no
time.

He shot by Heimbach in turns three and four, but Heimbach returned the
pass as they raced down the frontstretch. Macri worked the very top of
the speedway and passed Heimbach off turn two with 18 to go.

Macri caught the leader and shot under him entering turn three. He
slid up in front of him as they raced off turn four taking the lead
with 15 to go.

From there, Macri blasted away from the field increasing his lead even
as he raced up against the fence by slower traffic.

Heimbach looked inside of McIntyre for the runner-up spot, but
couldn’t make it work.

Three-time and defending track champion Logan Wagner had raced into
the top five from the 18th starting spot.

Marci led by 4-seconds with 10 laps to go.

It was Wagner making moves by Heimbach and then McIntyre for the
runner-up spot with five to go. Jeff Halligan and 14th starter Danny
Dietrich also raced into the top five late in the race.

But up front it was all Macri as he cruised to his eighth career Port
Royal win by 7.4 seconds over Wagner and 9-seconds over McIntyre.

“I knew we were pretty good early,” Wagner said. “The guys worked
really hard on this car. It was a disappointment in the heat race for
me personally. We bounced back in the A-main. I was picking cars off.
I didn’t know where I was or who I was racing or what I was going for.
After the checkered, I thought I might have won that, I don’t know.
Then I looked up and seen second. Hats off to those guys, I know they
work really hard. The car was really good, I just positioned myself
bad in the heat race.”

“We’re real happy,” McIntyre said. “We got beat by two of the best
cars at Port Royal, so there’s nothing to hang our heads about. Dennis
gave me a really good car, and sooner or later, I’ll figure out how to
drive it. At the beginning of the race, it really felt good. I have to
figure out what I need to do as a driver at the end of the race to
close them out. I don’t think we were going to beat the 39 and the 1
was fast, too, but I’d like to be able to race with them a little
more. That’s on me. We’ll get it figured out. We’ve had a lot of bad
luck. This is refreshing and hopefully more of these to come.”

Dietrich and Halligan completed the top five. Dylan Cisney, Heimbach,
A.J. Flick, Jason Shultz and Kerry Madsen rounded out the top 10.

Shultz earned the $1,000 J&S Fabrication Warrior Award. Wagner was the
Hard Charger. McIntyre earned $103 from the Port Royal Race Chasers.

Heats for the 36 Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Cars were won by Dylan
Cisney, Anthony Macri, Kerry Madsen and Jeff Halligan. TJ Stutts won
the B Main.

In the USAC East Coast 360 Sprint main event, Alex Bright led Carmen
Perigo Jr. and Colin White on the opening lap. Defending series
champion Steve Drevicki quickly raced into third after starting sixth.
Drevicki took the runner-up spot from Perigo with a pass off turn
four.

As Bright and Drevicki streaked away from the field, a great race for
third developed between five cars.

With 12 laps to go, the leaders were 8-seconds ahead of third place.
They raced in heavy lapped traffic as Drevicki tried to take the lead.
Meanwhile, the battle for third was between Briggs Danner and B-main
winner Kenny Miller Jr.

Miller Jr.’s great run came to an end with a second turn flip with
seven laps to go. He was okay.

Bright, of Collegeville, Pa., controlled the restart pulling away from
Drevicki as the race for third, fourth and fifth continued to be
close.

Colin White’s top five run came to an end as well with a fourth turn
flip with four to go. He was also okay.

The final laps saw Bright leading Drevicki with Joey Biasi challenging
Danner for third.

Bright’s second straight series win at Port Royal came by 4.2-seconds
over Drevicki

“When Drevicki showed his nose, that made me get on it a little bit
harder,” Bright said. “He showed his nose a couple times. I didn’t
completely leave him. I knew I had to stay on it. Right up against the
wall with these non-wing cars is fun. When you’re out in the lead like
that, you don’t know how hard you need to drive or I could have picked
it up and starting making mistakes. The car was underneath me. We were
along the same set-up tonight as last year. We tweaked a couple
things. This car was on rails. I can’t wait to come back here.”

“I felt like I was better than him and could run him down,” Drevicki
said. “It’s hard to pick that spot to be able to clear him with the
momentum we’re carrying around the top. I tried to make a hero out of
myself over here and bent the front axle back and I don’t know what
else. At that point, I had to settle in for second. It’s a good start
to the season and we’ll keep working hard to get that first win. I
felt like I had a good car, but it screwed up my entry when I did
that. I had to be really careful.”

Danner held off Biasi for third. Chris Allen Jr. completed the top
five. Perigo Jr., Damon Paul, Tommy Kunsman, Ed Aiken and Mike
Thompson rounded out the top 10.

Heats for the USAC East Coast 360 sprints were won by Briggs Danner,
Chris Allen Jr and Alex Bright. Kenny Miller III won the B Main.

Kenny Yoder and Donnie Farlling raced side-by-side for the lead on the
opening lap of the Selinsgrove Ford Limited Late Model feature.

A quick yellow with one lap completed slowed the pace.

Port Royal’s Devin Hart was already up to fourth. He took third on the
restart and nearly had second spot before another yellow flew.

Hart passed Farlling down the frontstretch for second following the
restart. He trailed Yoder for a few laps before switching lanes off
turn four making an inside pass for the lead with 13 laps to go.

He survived several restarts from there keeping Yoder behind him.
Defending track champion Andrew Yoder was into third and Todd Snook
moved into the top five during the final laps of the 20-lap main
event.

Hart’s fourth career Port Royal win, and second straight, came by 1.4-seconds.

“You’ve got to ride it while it’s up because it can go down real
quick, I found that out in 2019,” Hart said. “Last year, we struggled
some. I felt like we were good, we just weren’t where we needed to be.
That first race this year, we didn’t run as good as I thought we
would. We went back to our normal last week, and been really good
since, I want to keep it rolling as long as we can.”

K. Yoder, A. Yoder, Snook and Shaun Miller completed the top five.
Troy Miller, Derick Garman, Donnie Farlling, Shawn Shoemaker and Matt
Murphy rounded out the top 10.

Heats for the 32 Selinsgrove Ford Limited Late Models were won by
Donnie Farlling, Devin Hart, Kenny Yoder and Andrew Yoder. JR Toner
won the B Main.

Lance Dewease Continues March Toward History With Win Number 117; Mason Zeigler and Nick Sweigart Score Big As Well

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Penn. (April 4, 2021)- Lance Dewease celebrated Easter a day early by picking up his 117th career Weikert's Livestock 410 Sprint Car victory Saturday night at Port Royal Speedway after starting from the fourth starting position.

The win was Dewease's second of the season at the Juniata County oval and came over a hard charging Logan Wagner and Anthony Macri. Dewease's triumph was worth $4000 and moved him within 12 of all-time track winner Keith Kauffman on the all-time win list.

"I honestly didn't realize I had won that many races here, but it means the everything to me," said Dewease. "We're here to win races and we're not here to run 10th or fifth. We were kind of doing some R&D earlier this year and we're done with that, so we're back to working on our racecar and making it fast to win races."

Jeff Miller and Lynton Jeffrey led the field to the green-flag and it was Miller getting the early jump. However it was Macri on the move early as he used a great start to go from fifth to second on the opening circuit.

One lap later Dewease used the bottom in one and two to overtake Jeffrey for third and carried that momentum into turn three where he slid under Macri for second. It only took two more turn's for Dewease to track down Miller for the lead as he pulled alongside the young gun on the backstretch to take the top spot to lead lap three.

Macri got by Miller for second using the extreme top of the Speedway two laps later and set his sights on Dewease, while eighth-place starter Logan Wagner entered the podium one lap later. Chicora, Pa. native George Hobaugh followed suit into fourth as well.

With clean air in front of him, Dewease was cruising up front. But as he entered lapped traffic on lap eight, Macri and Wagner began closing in on the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame driver. Three laps later Macri had cut the distance in half and Wagner was lurking not far behind.

However the caution flew three laps later when Matt Farnham blew a tire on the Speedway and again gave Dewease open air in front of him. Dewease capitalized on the restart and again took off. Four laps later the final caution of the event flew when TJ Stutts blew a right-rear tire and set up a seven lap dash for the win.

"Anthony and Logan, those guys are pretty quick and they've been really good here all season," said Dewease. "But when the track get slick like this, I just feel really good out there and I felt pretty good about my chances with clean air."

Dewease was flawless on the restart and he again controlled the pace, but Wagner was all over Macri for second as he slid under him for the runner-up position exiting turn two. Macri used a run entering turn three to take the position back headed to the start-finish line and the two drivers swapped positions multiple times over the next two laps. Wagner was finally able to edge ahead to take the runner-up spot with four to go, but the battling allowed Dewease to be in cruise control out front.

All Wagner could do was hope for an Easter miracle, but it wasn't in the cards as Dewease crossed under the line by an advantage of 1.654 seconds to take the checkers. Behind Wagner and Macri, Hobaugh and Jeffrey rounded out the top five.

Mike Wagner, last week's winner Dylan Cisney, Ryan Smith, Jeff Halligan and Kerry Madsen finished out the top-ten. Halligan earned the Valley Supply $200 Hard Charger Award by advancing 13 positions after he was forced to qualify for the feature via the B-main after he broke a left front wheel earlier in the night during a heat race. Justin Whittal earned the $1000 J&S Fabrication Warrior Award presented by Jim & Sandy Kline after Dewease drew the number 17 in victory lane and Macri earned an addition $103 for his third-place finish courtesy of the Port Royal Race Chasers.

"We were pretty good here opening day and last week I put us in a bad position and bent a car up, so this is a new car and it's just been perfect since we rolled it out," said Dewease. "We got ourselves a new Rider engine in the car and it’s ran flawless and it's just been a great start to the year already winning two races and I can't wait for the All Stars here in a couple weeks."

410 Sprint Car Feature Results: 1. Lance Dewease; 2. Logan Wagner; 3. Anthony Macri; 4. George Hobaugh; 5. Lynton Jeffrey; 6. Mike Wagner; 7. Dylan Cisney; 8. Ryan Smith; 9. Jeff Halligan; 10.

River Valley Builders Super Late Models

Mason Zeigler scored his fourth career River Valley Builders Super Late Model triumph at the Port Royal Speedway during a caution free feature event over Colton Flinner and Ross Robinson. The win was worth $3000 for the Chalkhill, Pa. native.

"We didn't get a really good start and actually fell back to like fourth on that opening turn, but coming out of two we were in the lead so we have a pretty good piece here," said Zeigler. "We're still real tight and can’t really get around the middle and bottom like we need to, but luckily we were able to get around the top like we need to and here we are."

Austin Berry and Scott Flickinger led the field to the green-flag, but after a chaotic scramble it was Zeigler coming from the third starting spot to lead lap one. By lap five Zeigler held slightly over a two second advantage over fourth starter Mike Lupfer and he looked to be in control of the race.

Last year's track champion, Andy Haus, moved by Lupfer for the runner-up spot one lap later, while seventh start Flinner was on the move and slid into third on lap six. Two laps later Flinner got by Haus for second, but by lap ten Zeigler still held a 2.259 second advantage.

With Zeigler struggling in heavy lapped traffic, Flinner was able to close the gap quickly and with ten laps to go in the 25-lap A-main he ducked under Zeigler and briefly took the lead exiting turn two. However Zeigler used a head of steam down the backstretch to gain momentum in turn's three and four to re-take the lead at the line.

"My guys were signaling to me that I had a nice lead and out of nowhere I saw Colton there under me and he definitely made me pick up the pace there late," said Zeigler. "Luckily we still had a little bit left there in the tank and we were able to fight back and hold him off."

Over the final 10 circuits, Zeigler would again stretch his lead, but with a handful of laps remaining he was buried deep in two-wide lapped traffic. Flinner stayed patient on the bottom of the track and again tried to reel him in. He made several attempts in the middle of turn's one and two to pull even with Zeigler, but Zeigler was too good on the top and powered away.

When he crossed under the checkered flag, he held a .612 advantage. Behind Flinner and Robinson, Dylan Yoder and two-time 2021 winner Gregg Satterlee rounded out the top-five. Tyler Bare, Jeff Rine, Haus, Opening Day winner Trevor Feathers and Nick Dickson finished up the top-ten.

"I was just trying to conserve and keep my tires under me there for a while, but once I caught those lapped cars they were battling hard in front of me and I didn’t want to push the issue if I didn’t need to," said Zeigler. "I just had to just get up and defend around the top and hopefully lapped traffic would play into our favor once Colton showed us his nose. The car was good and we're going home winners in one piece and we'll come back next week."

Justin Weaver picked up the $200 George's Used Cars Inc. Hard Charger Award by passing nine cars enroot to a 15th-place finish.

Super Late Model Feature Results: 1. Mason Zeigler; 2. Colton Flinner; 3. Ross Robinson; 4. Dylan Yoder; 5. Gregg Satterlee; 6. Tyler Bare; 7. Jeff Rine; 8. Andy Haus; 9. Trevor Feathers; 10. Nick Dickson; 11. Gary Stuhler; 12. Mike Lupfer; 13. Kyle Knapp; 14. Austin Berry; 15. Justin Weaver; 16. Jon Lee; 17. Scott Flickinger; 18. Jim Yoder; 19. Roy Deese; 20. Andrew Yoder; 21. Tim Wilson; 22. Jamie Lathroum; 23. Trent Brenneman; 24. Billy Wampler.

Penns Valley Meat Market PA Sprint Series 305 Sprint Cars

Nick Sweigart powered forward from the fifth starting position to claim his fifth career Penns Valley Meat Market PA Sprint Series 305 Sprint Car victory at Port Royal Speedway Saturday night.

The win moved him into a five-driver tie for fourth all-time on the win list at the Speedway in the division with Logan Wagner, Mark Watkins, Mike Wagner II and Tyler Reeser.

"It was a lot of fun out there racing with those guys," said Sweigart. "It was hard racing, but it was good racing and we put it all together."

Austin Reed and last year's track champion Garrett Bard led the field to the green flag with Bard jumping out to the early lead. Third-place starter Dave Grube moved into second on the opening circuit and exiting turn two it appeared he was going to overtake Bard for the top-spot when two cars got together on the frontstretch and brought out the red-flag to negate the pass.

Bard set the pace on the restart and on lap five, Grube again pulled alongside of the leader and this time was able to pull ahead slightly at the line to lead the lap. However, it was short lived up top for Grube as Sweigart was in heavy pursuit on the top of the track and he got around Bard for second on lap seven and then cruised around Grube for the lead on lap eight.

Grube fought back on the inside to lead lap nine, but again Sweigart used momentum on the top side to exit turn four the following circuit to lead lap 10. One lap later the leaders hit lapped traffic and from there all Sweigart had to do was stay patient.

Grube tried his hardest, but the night belonged to Sweigart as he crossed under the checkered flag by an advantage of 3.679 seconds. After Grube and Bard, Justin Clark and Ken Duke rounded out the top-five. Devin Adams, Reed, Nick Tucker, Drew Young and Doug Dodson completed the top-ten.

"We had some issues earlier in the night with the fuel pump and we kind overcame that to get here," said Sweigart. "We've come so close these last few years to coming out and winning our first night out and I just said this is going to be the year and I'm thrilled."

305 Sprint Cars Feature Results: 1. Nick Sweigart; 2. Dave Grube; 3. Garrett Bard; 4. Justin Clark; 5. Ken Duke; 6. Devin Adams; 7. Austin Reed; 8. Nick Tucker; 9. Drew Young; 10. Doug Dodson; 11.

Saturday, April 24, 2021 (7:30PM) 410 Sprints, Central PA Legends, and Mid-Atlantic Modifieds (York County Racing Club Night)

Abbottstown, PA (April 3, 2021) – Going into Saturday night, Billy Dietrich’s last win at Lincoln came in 2016, so to say he was hungry for a win would have been an understatement. Billy jumped out to the lead at the start and as the laps wound down it looked like he would wire the field in a non-stop race, but debris on the track brought out a caution with 8 laps to go. Billy crossed the line ahead of his younger brother, Danny, with the fans on their feet to claim his third career win at the track.

The night started with time trials for the Gene Latta Ford 410 Sprint Cars with Robbie Kendall setting quick time putting down a lap of 13.409 seconds. The PA Speedweek format was followed, lining up the fastest car in each heat fourth. From each heat race, the winner and the fastest car that qualified made the redraw for the 30-lap feature.

Chad Trout picked the number one pill to start on the pole with Billy lined up to his outside. Danny and Troy Wagaman shared the second row for the feature start.

Trout and Billy raced side-by-side into turn 3 with Trout on the bottom. Billy took the lead coming out turn 4 using the high line. Wagaman was running third and set his sight on Trout.

Danny was running fourth and Chase Dietz worked his way into the top five after starting eighth.

Billy had a 3.113 second lead on lap 7 as he closed in on lapped traffic. Danny had reeled in Wagaman and was battling hard for third. Danny slid Wagaman in turns 3 and 4 to take the spot on lap 9.

Troy got him back coming out of turn 2 and Dietz was there to battle Dietrich for fourth. Dietz got by Danny on lap 13 to claim the fourth spot.

Dietz then got by Wagaman coming out of turn 2. Wagaman battled back but Dietz held the third spot at the line.

Danny got by Wagaman for fourth on lap 17 and made quick work of Dietz taking third on the next lap.

Danny was hunting down Trout for second when the yellow flag came out on lap 22 for debris on the track.

Billy paced the field slowly, ahead of Trout, Danny, Dietz and Wagaman for the restart.

All of the leaders went to the bottom in turn 1 except Danny, who got by Trout for second.

Danny tried a middle line in turns 1 and 2 on lap 26 to try and take the lead from his brother but could not make the pass. Danny was trying everything to get by Billy and tried a slider in turns 3 and 4 but still couldn’t get around Billy. As the laps wound down, Danny was making contact with the wall in turn 2, allowing Billy to pull away ever so slightly.

Billy got to the checkered flag 1.123 seconds ahead of Danny. Trout held on to finish third and Dietz crossed the line fourth. Wagaman completed the top five.

Heat race winners were Danny Dietrich, Tim Shaffer and Troy Wagaman. Chase Dietz was the hard charger, driving from his 10th starting spot to a fourth place finish.

Jeff Rohrbaugh Adds to 358 Win Record

Jeff Rohrbaugh added to his already impressive 358 sprint win total on Saturday night, making it 17 wins for the leader of the all-time win list.

Rookie-driver, Riley Emig sat on the pole for the 20-lap feature with defending champion Cody Fletcher lined up second.

From his fourth starting spot, Rohrbaugh got up to second with a strong start. Emig led the field with Rohrbaugh getting a nose under Emig in turn 3. Emig used the outside to hold the lead at the line. Fletcher and Jon Stewart battled for fourth and were side-by-side at the line with Fletcher having the slight advantage.

Emig used a higher line around the track to hold off the veteran driver, Rohrbaugh. Rohrbaugh took the lead from the rookie by a nose at the line on lap 4. Emig stayed within striking distance of Rohrbaugh with Brett Strickler running in third.

The caution flag waved on lap 6 for Cody Fletcher. Fletcher had fire shooting out from under his car the previous lap and dropped oil on the track. Fletcher remained running and held on to his fourth spot.

Rohrbaugh led Emig, Brett, Fletcher and Stewart to the cone for the restart.

Rohrbaugh used the bottom of turns 1 and 2 to pull away from the field. Brett held off Fletcher as he challenged for third. The yellow flag came out again on lap 9 when Emig spun in turn 2. Emig had been running second.

Brett, Fletcher, Stewart and Jordan Strickler lined up behind Rohrbaugh for the single-file restart.

Brett tried to get a run on Rohrbaugh in turns 3 and 4 to no avail. Rohrbaugh entered lapped traffic with five laps to go. Brett was closing in on the leader until lapped traffic took away the high line in turns 3 and 4 where Brett was getting a good run.

Rohrbaugh crossed the line 1.117 ahead of Brett for his 17th career Lincoln Speedway win. Fletcher finished third and Stewart crossed the line fourth. Jordan completed the top five.

358 sprint car heat races were won by Jon Stewart, Jordan Strickler and Jeff Rohrbaugh. Justin Foster was the hard charger advancing from his 20th starting spot to a 14th place finish.

Next Saturday, April 10, Lincoln Speedway is back in action with 410 Sprint Cars, 358 Sprint Cars and the Outlaw Vintage Series. Racing starts at 7PM with pit gates opening at 4:30PM and grandstand gates opening at 5PM.

Dueces Wild! Cisney and Rine Score Victories in Sprint Car and Super Late Model Competition; Devin Hart Wins Limited Late Model Feature

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Penn. (March 28, 2021)- Dylan Cisney has been knocking on the door of a win all season at Port Royal Speedway. After a third on Opening Day and a fourth last week, Cisney finally kicked down the down the door as he claimed the victory Saturday night over Jeff Halligan and Danny Dietrich.

The win was worth $4000 and was Cisney's fifth of his career at the Juniata County oval that sits only a few blocks from his home. Logan Wagner and Mike Wagner rounded out the rest of the top five.

"I wasn't sure how this thing was going to play out as it was really fast when we first got here," said Cisney. "The track was really in between during the heat races and luckily it slicked off. I don't know how good we were, but ultimately we were good enough to end up in victory lane and I just love this place so much."

Cisney, driving a number two sprinter owned by Scott Cowman instead of his family owned number five, lined up from the pole position alongside of Jeff Miller and got the early jump to lead lap one.

Seventh-place starter AJ Flick was on the move early as he moved into fifth on the first lap and two laps later he slid into fourth. Ninth-place starter Danny Dietrich also was on the move early as he entered the top-five on lap four.

After dropping back on the initial start, Anthony Macri got hooked up on the top of the speedway and he moved into fourth on lap eight. The following lap he cruised around Flick for third exiting turn two, but he lost a right wheel due to a mechanical issue and spun and collected Flick to bring out the red flag. Flick tipped over on his side as a result of the contact, but was ok. Neither driver would return.

Gerrard McIntyre Jr. slowed on the backstretch on the restart, which caused Blane Heimbach and Tyler Bear to spin in turn in turn two to bring out the second caution. All three drivers returned to action at the rear of the field.

Cisney again jumped out to a lead at the return to green-flag action, while Pat Cannon overtook Miller for the runner up spot down the backstretch. Cisney was pulling away from the field when a third caution flew on lap 11 when Miller made contact made contact with the outside guardrail in turn four and hit Kerry Madsen's right rear, causing the Australian to lose a tire as well. Madsen had moved from his 13th starting spot to the top-five before the incident and would rejoin the field.

Cisney again got a great jump on the restart and it was 11th-place starter Halligan making his move as he entered the top-five for the first time. Two laps later he moved past TJ Stutts for fourth and the following circuit he used the bottom of turn four to pass Dietrich for third. All momentum was halted the following lap when McIntyre slowed on the front stretch to bring out the final caution of the race.

Continuing to show his dominance, Cisney again took off on the restart, while Halligan cruised around Cannon to move into the runner-up position. Halligan was closing in on Cisney, but with five laps to go Cisney still held a nearly 1.5 second advantage. Dietrich and Halligan soon were battling it out for the second spot, allowing Cisney to stretch his lead over the remaining laps.

When the checkered flag flew, Cisney held a 1.5554 second advantage as he made it three different winners in three consecutive weeks to being the season at the Juniata County oval.

"This is really good, especially getting Scott Cowman a win here in Pennsylvania," said Cisney. "We can check that off the bucket list. Hopefully he keeps me as a driver and doesn't retire and say the heck with it because we got him a win too early."

For Halligan, he believes his team just needs to get more consistent to be sitting in victory lane,

"I'm pretty pleased somewhat, but I just feel like we could be a lot better," said Halligan. "We're hitting here, missing there, and just haven’t put a whole night together. We got lucky with a few crashes that put us in position and we took advantage of it."

Last weeks winner Justin Peck finished sixth, while Cannon, Madsen, Lucas Wolfe and Stutts rounded out the top ten. Logan Wagner earned a $500 hard charger bonus courtesy of Valley Supply Inc. and Mike Cleck paving by advancing 13 positions in the feature while Stutts earned the $1000 Warrior Award bonus courtesy of Jim and Sandy Kline and J&S Fabrication with the ransom draw number coming up 10.

Sprint Car Feature Finish: 1. Dylan Cisney; 2. Jeff Halligan; 3. Danny Dietrich; 4. Logan Wagner; 5. Mike Wagner; 6. Justin Peck; 7. Pat Cannon; 8. Kerry Madsen; 9. Lucas Wolfe; 10. T.J. Stutts; 11.

Jeff Rine capitalized on a lap nine restart to take the lead and claim the $3000 to win River Valley Builders Super Late Model feature over Rick Eckert and Gary Stuhler. The win was Rine's 26th of his career at the Speedway.

"This is one of the first races that my dad missed and I know he's watching at home but it’s not the same without him here," said Rine. "We had some issues in warm ups, but we got it figured out and we beat one of the best late model drivers in Rick, so this is pretty cool."

Dave Brouse Jr. and Nick Dickson led the field to the green flag and it was Dickson getting the early jump. He was leading comfortably when Ross Robinson slowed on the backstretch to bring out the caution on lap eight.

One the restart, Rine, who started fourth, got underneath Dickson and he took the lead. Sixth=place starter Eckert edged ahead of Dickson for second at the line as well. However, the field was bunched up after a six-car pile up exiting turn two brought out the caution.

With Rine running the middle of the track and Eckert running the top, Eckert was slowly closing in on the leader. He tried the bottom of the speedway in turn's one and two to pull alongside of Rine, but Rine pulled away down the backstrech.

With five to go, Rine entered lap traffic and Eckert was again trying to mount a comeback. With two laps remaining, Eckert was all over the leader. However Rine remained steady and held off the veteran by an advantage of .438 seconds for the victory. Behind Eckert and Stuhler, who started 10th, Dylan Yoder and Trevor Feathers rounded out the top-five.

"If Rick had gotten to the lead first I don’t know if I'd have passed him honestly," said Rine. "This surface is just phenomenal and we were able to kind of search around and I'm just glad to be able to hold him off and get the win."

Max Blair finish in sixth and he also earned the $300 hard charger award courtesy of George's Used Cars Inc. Colton Flinner, Jason Covert, Robinson and Dickson rounded out the top-ten.

Peck And Blair Wire For Williams Grove Wins As Both Drivers Net Career Firsts At Track

3/26/21

Mechanicsburg – Justin Peck of Mooresville, Indiana, wired the field for the 410 sprint car victory at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, taking a $5,500 score for his first ever oval victory.

At the wheel of the Buch No. 13, Peck withstood three restarts with TJ Stutts on his tail to pick up the victory.

In the 30-lap ULMS Super Late Model main, Max Blair of Centerville took the win, likewise to record his first ever oval checkers as well.

Peck drew the number two pill to start the 25-lap sprint car main and jetted out to the lead when action began, already entering the rear of the field with just five laps in the book.

The pace was lightning-quick on the early season surface and Peck had a three-second lead over Stutts when Tyler Courtney spun in the second corner one lap shy of the halfway point.

Another caution flag bunched the field a lap later, this time for a stopped Robbie Kendall on the frontstretch.

Peck then hit traffic again with three laps to go but had the field covered and he was racing onto the frontstretch for the checkers when instead he saw the yellow flag flash over the field, setting up a one-lap dash to the finish.

Peck drove easily to the win by 1.337 seconds over Stutts while 14th starter Tim Shaffer tried for third on the final restart.

Shaffer tried to bolt outside of Chase Dietz in the first corner when green replaced the yellow but despite a blistering effort, he failed to gain the spot.

Steve Buckwalter finished fifth after riding inside the top five during the entire event.

Sixth through 10th went to Freddie Rahmer, Kyle Reinhardt, Ryan Taylor, Danny Dietrich and Kerry Madsen.

Heats went to Peck, Stutts and Anthony Macri with the consolation going to Lucas Wolfe.

“My guys had this 13 rolling,” said Peck.

We seem to hit it pretty well lately. Every time we hit the track, it’s fast and moving forward.”

“It feels good to be standing on the frontstretch here,” Peck said.

In the 30-lap main event for ULMS late models, it was Blair who grabbed the lead over Andy Haus and Coleby Frye.

The first yellow flag flew with 14 laps completed, erasing Blair’s 1.284-second lead.

Blair controlled the restart as Frye challenged Haus for second with Kyle Lee not far behind.

The yellow flew again with 12 laps to go.

Jason Covert then grabbed fourth on the restart from Lee as Blair pulled away.

Frye finally grabbed second from Haus with 2 laps to go before Covert also passed Haus.

Blair’s $3,000 win came by 1.769 over Frye, Covert, Haus and Dylan Yoder. Lee, Shaun Jones, Gene Knaub, Justin Weaver and Ryan Scott rounded out the top 10.

Bryan Bernheisel set quick time over the 22-car field with a lap of 20.105 seconds however at the start of the first heat race he barrel rolled his No. 119 through the first corner and out over the guardrail, to exit the speedway.

Mike Lupfer, Blair and Dylan Yoder won the heat races.

LINCOLN SPEEDWAY

Abbottstown, PA

FLETCHER SCORES FIRST CAREER LINCOLN 358 SPRINT TITLE

Abbottstown, PA (Saturday, March 20, 2021) – The 2021 358 Sprint Car season started on a beautiful Saturday afternoon in the pigeon hills. Prior to the features the 2020 358 Sprint Car Champion and Special Award Honorees were honored in front of the crowd in place of the usual banquet.

Cody Fletcher earned his first track championship in 2020 in a battle that went down to the wire. Four drivers were eligible to claim the track title going into the final race of the season, Fletcher, Todd Rittenhouse Jr., Brett Wanner and Steve Owings. Fletcher’s 8th place finish in the final race of the season secured him his first championship.

The 358 sprints got off to a late start in 2020 due to the shutdown. When the 358s first hit the track on May 30, Fletcher finished 11th, just outside of the top-10. Cody followed up with back-to-back fifth place runs in June.

On July 4th Cody finished 12th. He rebounded on July 11th with a fifth place finish. August started with a rainout. The first race of the month Fletcher earned a top 10. The night of the make-up feature, Fletcher finished fourth in the regularly scheduled program but had a DNF in the make-up event.

Fletcher had another DNF to start off the month of September but finished out the season with two top-10s. Cody’s third place finish in the final race of the season was enough for him to claim the track championship.

Without the shutdown due to the pandemic, the season might have ended with a different champion. Todd Ritthenhouse Jr. started off the season with back-to-back wins, but the first two races after the shutdown were not points races for the division. Rittenhouse ended up second in the point standings for the season with 7 top-10s and 4 top-5s.

Brett Wanner also scored two wins during the 2020 season on his way to a third place finish in the point standings. Wanner also claimed the Summer Series title. Wanner finished the season with 7 top-10s and 5 top-5s.

Rounding out the top five in points were Scott Fisher who scored a win and 5 top-10s and 2 top-5s and Steve Owings (7 top-10s/5 top-5s).

Completing the top 10 in points were Brett Strickler with 1 win and 3 top-5 and 3 top-10 finishes; Chris Frank 7 top-10s; Jordan Strickler 1 top-5/2 top-10; Chris Arnold had 1 win and 3 top-5 and 5 top-10 finishes and Justin Foster 1 top-5/3 top-10.

There were 11 races run by the 358 sprints in 2020 with 8 different winners including one first-time winner, Brett Strickler.

Justin Foster earned Rookie of the Year honors in the 358 sprint division. Foster placed in the top-10 three times in his rookie campaign in 2020, including one top-5.

The Most Improved Driver in 358 sprint competition during 2020 was awarded to Brett Wanner.

 Justin Peck Earns First Career Port Royal Sprint Car Victory; Satterlee and Parks Score Big in Late Model Competition

 

 By- Justin Snyder

 

 Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Penn. (March 21, 2021)- Justin Peck capitalized on a front row starting spot to lead all 25 laps and picked up his first career Weikert's Livestock 410 Sprint Car victory over a hard charging Anthony Macri Saturday at Port Royal Speedway.

 

 The Indiana native will be a regular on the FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions tour this season behind the wheel of the Tom Buch No. 13. Originally the team planned to follow the World of Outlaws tour to start the season, but looking to capitalize on an opportunity to gain more laps in the Central Pennsylvania area, Peck is making the best of the opportunity.

 

 "There's no denying the 13 car has speed right now," said Peck, "We came here last week and had nowhere near the car we had tonight. I didn’t win a race all last year, so it's nice to have one checked off in March this year."

 

 Dylan Cisney and Peck lined up on the front row and it was Cisney getting the early jump. However, last week's winner Lance Dewease and Pat Cannon got together on the backstretch to bring out the caution before a lap could be completed. Cannon would rejoin the field.

 

 On the restart, Peck got the run exiting turn two and pulled even with Cisney on the backstretch. With a head of steam entering turn three, Peck exited the turn with the lead to lead lap one. By lap five, Peck had already caught the tail end of the field and began to maneuver through lap traffic.

 

 Three laps later the top four cars were all under a blanket on the backstretch in heavy lap traffic, but the caution would fly when Tyler Reeser and Jason Schultz got together in turn two. The halt in action gave Peck the clean air he needed to feel good in his car.

 

 "I might have been looking at on lap car rather than trying to look forward and pick and choose my lines where I needed to be," said Peck. "I couldn't get off the top in one and two, but I saw Anthony sticking his nose under me there and I knew I had to stay up top and bang the board to hold on."

 

 Peck raced out at the return to green flag action, while last year's leading feature winner at the Speedway, Macri, made his move for second on the inside of turn's three and four the following circuit. Defending track champion Logan Wagner followed suit and slid into the third position on lap 10.

 

 Four laps later Peck again closed in on the tail end of the field and Macri was all over him for the lead. He tried the bottom of the speedway on multiple occasions, but Peck was too strong off the top of the Speedway.

 

 With Wagner lurking behind them both, Macri continued to gain ground on the backstretch and was throwing everything he had at Peck in heavy lapped traffic. Macri was better in turn's one and two, but Peck had the momentum in three and four.

 

 With five to go, Macri had his best opportunity as Peck was struggling to pick his line to pass the lappers. He dove to the bottom of him entering turn three, but Peck was able to position a lapped car between himself and Macri heading to the flag stand.

 

 Macri would make one last dive-bomb effort on the final circuit entering turn three, but ultimately Peck was too strong and cruised home to his first career Port Royal triumph by a total of 1.316 seconds over Macri, Wagner, Cisney and Mike Wagner.

 

 The win was worth $4000 and was Peck's first since stepping behind the wheel of the Tom Buch machine.

 

 "This is pretty cool as I grew up watching the Pennsylvania Posse and these guys are always tough no matter what night it is," said Peck. "Tom Buch and all the guys that work on this car have me an awesome piece. It’s so much fun to be able to come out here and compete like we have been and we'll keep plugging forward and see if we can’t get ourselves a couple more this year."

 

 For Macri, it was a struggle in turn's three and four and he believed that was the difference between first and second.

 

 "I knew they would be hard to beat off the front row as those guys have been really impressive since they got together," said Macri. "We'd get a good run on Justin down the backstretch, but couldn’t capitalize in three and four. They had the best car tonight and we'll keep working at it for next week."

 

 Blane Heimbach, Ryan Taylor, George Hobaugh, Jeff Halliagn and Mike Walter II rounded out the top ten. Hobaugh earned the $500 hard charger award courtesy of Valley Supply and Mike Cleck Paving by advancing a total of 13 positions. Tyler Reeser earned the $1000 Warrior Award courtesy of Jim and Sandy Kline and J & S Fabrication after a random draw selected the 22nd position.

 ULMS Super Late Models

 

 Gregg Satterlee picked right up where he left off last season by picking up the $3000 win during the Zimmer's Service Center ULMS Racing Series feature event. The win moved Satterlee into a tie for 26th all-time at Port Royal Speedway and was his tenth career triumph at the Juniata County oval.

 

 Satterlee bested Michael Norris, Max Blair, Rick Eckert and Tyler Bare by 3.526 seconds to earn the victory.

 

 "I just love coming to this place so much and it doesn't matter how many divisions are here the track is just perfect," said Satterlee. "It's easy to be happy when you're in victory lane and our car was just so good tonight."

 

 Norris and Satterlee led the field to the green flag and it was Norris getting the early jump. Third starter Blair moved into second initially while Satterlee settled into third.

 

 Norris opened up an early lead and he hit happed traffic on lap eight. One lap later Satterlee slid under Blair for the runner up spot and he set his sights on the leader. Three laps later Satterlee was all over Norris and he tried unsuccessfully to take the lead for two laps.

 

 Finally on lap 14 Satterlee used a head of steam entering turn three to slide up in front of Norris to lead heading to the flag stand.

 

 The caution flew the following lap for a slowing Mason Zeigler, but with clean air ahead of him Satterlee cruised ahead at the return to green flag action.

 

 Norris and Blair battled side by side for most of the remaining laps, but neither had anything for Satterlee as he checked out to score the victory.

 

 Dylan Yoder, Ross Robinson, Jared Miley, Colton Flinner and Gary Stuhler made up the rest of the top ten.

 

 "It just seems this track really suits our program here lately and we've been good just about everytime out," said Satterlee. "With how much they're paying and the fields and track conditions, it’s safe to say we'll be visiting Port Royal a time or two this season."

 

 For Norris, he knew that once Satterlee got by him it was going to be tough to track him back down.

 

 "I knew we needed to get out front early and go if we wanted a chance," said Norris. "Gregg is so good here and once I saw him get by I think we were pretty much racing for second. It was a lot of fun out there and I hope the fans enjoyed it."

 

 Kyle Knapp earned the hard charger award worth $200 courtesy of Georges Used Cars Inc. by advancing nine positions from 27th to 18th.

 Limited Late Models

 

 Matt Parks led all 20 laps to score his first career Selinsgrove Ford Limited Late Model feature event at the Port Royal Speedway. Andrew Yoder, Dillan Stake, Logan Robinson and Donnie Farling rounded out the top five.

 

 The win was worth $1300, which was a $100 increase on the regular purse thanks to a fan, Zachary Knepp.

 

 Parks outlasted a seven car pileup on lap four and late charge from Yoder and Stake to score the victory. Yoder started 12th on the grid while Stake started 13th.

 

 A caution with four laps to go bunched up the field and Yoder and Stake both moved into their respective positions with two laps remaining, Yoder was closing the distance but simply ran out of laps as Parks won by a .694 second advantage.

 

 "You know this car is two years old and we've just kind of been trying to get by and working hard for a few years now," said Parks. "I was beginning to wonder if maybe I should give it up, but to be sitting here tells me I still have something to give and we'll keep trying our hardest."

 

 Devin Hart, Derick Garman, Shawn Shoemaker, Mike Smith and Taylor Farling rounded out the top ten.

Saturday, April 10, 2021 (7PM) 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints and Outlaw Vintage

Abbottstown, PA (March 20, 2021) – Alan Krimes lined up sixth for the start of the 30-lap feature on Saturday afternoon. Krimes rolled around the bottom of the track to work his way to the front of the field. With five laps to go, Krimes got by defending track champion, Freddie Rahmer, for the lead and never looked back, claiming the $4,000 prize and his 22nd career win at the track.

Dylan Norris and Freddie Rahmer shared the front row for the start of the feature. Norris got in front of Rahmer on the start and led the field coming out of turn 2. Rahmer tried to slide in front of Norris in turns 3 and 4, but Norris held the lead at the line.

Freddie got by Norris coming out of turn 2 to take the lead.

Brandon Rahmer was running the bottom line trying to get a run on Dietz who was running third.

Freddie had a three-second lead as he approached lapped traffic on lap 6. The first yellow flag of the race came on lap 7 when Bradley Howard stopped on the front stretch.

Freddie led Norris, Dietz, Brandon and Krimes to the cone for the single-file restart. Dietz got under Norris to move into second and Krimes got by Brandon for fourth, but the yellow came out before the lap was completed, negating both passes. Aaron Bollinger and Ricky Dieva got together in turns 1 and 2 and brought out the caution.

On the restart Dietz got to the outside of Norris in turns 1 and 2 but couldn’t make the pass for second. Dietz stuck with Norris though and took the runner-up spot in turns 3 and 4.

Krimes was battling Brandon for fourth and took the spot at the line on lap 9. Krimes then went to work on Norris and made the pass for third on the next lap.

Further back in the field Tim Shaffer and Danny Dietrich were raging a fierce battle for seventh and Billy Dietrich and Brandon were racing for fifth.

As the leaders were catching the tail-end of the field the caution came out on lap 14 for Jordan Givler. Givler came to a stop on the front stretch with a flat right rear tire. Givler went to the work area and his team changed the tire for him to rejoin the field.

Dietz, Krimes, Norris and Brandon lined up behind Freddie for the restart. Krimes was using the bottom of the track to close in on Dietz and got by him for the second spot on lap 17.

Lap 17 also saw Danny Dietrich make his way into the top five after lining up 12th for the start of the race.

Freddie was back in lapped traffic with 10 laps to go and his advantage over Krimes was down to less than one second.

Krimes caught Freddie with 8 laps to go with Krimes rolling around the bottom and Freddie opting for the high line around the track.

Krimes was getting a good run out of turn 4 and dove under Rahmer going into turn 3 on lap 24. Krimes beat Rahmer back to the line to take the lead with the crowd on their feet and five laps to go.

Freddie tried to get the lead back in turns 1 and 2 to no avail. Krimes’ win was his 22nd at the track. Dietz got by Freddie for second on the last lap. Danny Dietrich finished fourth and Brandon completed the top five. Krimes was the fourth different winner in as many weeks at Lincoln this year.

Heat race winners were Freddie Rahmer, Tyler Ross and Dylan Norris. For the second week in a row Danny Dietrich was the hard charger driving from his 12th starting spot to a 4th place finish.

Cody Fletcher Defends Track Title with Season Opener Win

Defending track champion, Cody Fletcher, received his 2020 championship trophy and recognition in front of the crowd Saturday afternoon before strapping in for the 20-lap feature. Fletcher found himself back in victory lane for his second career win at the track later in the afternoon.

Zachary Allman and Dylan Orwig shared the front row for the first 358 sprint car race of the season. Orwig spun out on the first lap in turn 1 and landed on his side bringing out the red flag. Steve Owings hit the wall getting by Orwig and ended up with a flat tire. Owings was able to change the tire and rejoin. Orwig also rejoined the field after getting upright.

The field lined up for a complete restart with Allman and Mason Chaney on the front row. Owings had more trouble in turn 1 on the restart bringing out the yellow flag when he got turned around.

The third time was the charm for the start of the first 358 sprint car feature of the 2021 season. Chaney had the lead coming out of turn 2 and led lap 1 with Allman in second and Zane Rudisill and Fletcher battling for third.

Rudisill and Fletcher caught Allman making it a three-car battle for second. Rudisill took the runner-up spot on lap 3. The yellow flag waved again on lap 4 for a six car pile-up in turns 1 and 2. The cars involved, Chad Criswell, Orwig, Ashley Cappetta, Zachary Cool, Owings and David Holbrook, nearly blocked the track.

Chaney paced the field for the restart ahead of Rudisill, Fletcher, Allman and Riley Emig.

Rudisill looked to the outside of Chaney on the restart but the red flag came out for Emig in turn 1. Emig was making his debut in the 358 sprint division on Saturday and had lined up 12th for the feature. Emig had raced his way up to fifth before his misfortune.

Rudisill tried the outside again on the restart but could not get by Chaney. The top three, Chaney, Rudisill and Fletcher, were pulling way from the rest of the field. Rudisill was trying everything to get by Chaney which allowed Fletcher to close in. Fletcher got by Rudisill for second on lap 12 right before the caution came out for Orwig in turn 4.

Chaney led Fletcher, Rudisill, Allman and Brett Wanner on the restart. Wanner had made his way into the top five from his 16th starting spot.

Fletcher looked to the outside of Chaney and made the pass for the lead coming out of turn 2. Wanner was working on Allman for the fourth spot.

Fletcher was pulling away and had a nearly two-second lead with five laps to go. Allman was still holding off Allman but with two laps to go Wanner made the pass for fourth in turns 1 and 2. Wanner wasn’t done though as he passed Rudisill for third in turns 3 and 4, advancing two spots in one lap.

Fletcher got to the checkered flag 2.248 seconds ahead of Chaney. Wanner earned the hard charger award with his third place finish, having advanced 13 spots in the feature. Rudisill held on for a fourth place finish and Allman completed the top five.

358 sprint car heat races were won by Dylan Orwig, Cody Fletcher and Kody Hartlaub.

Freddie Rahmer Wins Windy Williams Grove Opener Sunday

3/14/21

Mechanicsburg – Defending track champion Freddie Rahmer won the windswept season opener for sprint cars at Williams Grove Speedway on Sunday afternoon.

Rahmer pocketed $5,500 for his opening day payday. It was his first-ever victory in a Williams Grove lidlifter.

His father, Fred Rahmer, scored six times in the prestigious event during his storied career.

Harsh winds blew Rahmer to his victory after starting out on the pole alongside his brother Brandon.

The first caution flag of the race appeared with three laps down when Kerry Madsen spun in the second turn marbles.

Third starter Justin Peck nudged under Brandon Rahmer for second in the third turn on the 16th tour but until then the front three had run in line.

Sixth starter Lance Dewease moved into fourth on the lap three restart and had followed the front trio.

Dewease got by Brandon Rahmer for third in the first and second turns with seven laps to go.

Rahmer ran up on traffic with 10 laps to go but preferred to keep the backmarkers at arm’s length rather than to begin working the pack on the tricky surface.

A yellow flag with two laps to go cleared the way for Rahmer after Alan Krimes limped to a stop with a flat tire.

Rahmer then had the checkers in sight a few minutes later only to again see a yellow flag slow his pace before he could get to the finish line.

The one-lap sprint to the finish produced no changes as Rahmer took the win by .37 seconds over Peck.

Dewease was third followed by Brandon Rahmer and 10th starter Dylan Cisney.

“The wind was the whole thing today,” Rahmer said.

”At one end it puts you down and on one end it puts you out.”

Rahmer said he was happy to stay out of traffic.

“I wasn’t gonna’ push the issue,” he said.

Sixth through 10th went to Rick Lafferty, Hunter Schurenberg, Chad Trout, Brent Shearer and Danny Dietrich.

Heats went to TJ Stutts, Dewease, Trout and Peck with Alan Krimes taking the consolation race.

Lance Dewease Earns Fourth Career Opening Day Triumph, Feathers Earns Second Consecutive Opening Day Late Model Win

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway, PORT ROYAL, Penn. (March 14, 20210- Lance Dewease entered the 2021 racing season 14 wins behind Keith Kauffman for the all-time winningest driver in the history of the Port Royal Speedway.

With only 12 races at the historic Juniata County oval currently on Dewease and his Don Kreitz Jr. racing team's schedule, the likelihood that Dewease catches 'The Man from Mifflintown' this season was highly unlikely.

However, after Saturday night's performance during the 79th annual Opening Day presented by Packer's Concessions Dewease's imagination may be starting wonder just a bit. Dewease capitalized on a pole position starting spot to claim his fourth career Opening Day triumph over Kerry Madsen, Dylan Cisney, Jeff Halligan and Logan Wagner.

The win was worth $5000 and was a reminder that even with a limited schedule, Dewease is a threat every time his team pulls into the pits.

"The car was really good all night and the team did a great job," said Dewease. "My son made up for his poor draw earlier in the night to get us the pole position for the feature. It's a whole team effort and I'm just fortunate enough to drive the car."

Dewease and FloRacing All Stars Circuit of Champions contender Hunter Schuerenberg lined up on the front row for the 25-lap A-main and it was Dewease getting the early jump before the start was called off due to some shuffling mid-pack. However, on the restart it was fourth starting Madsen using the highline to go to the front and he led lap one over Dewease.

Dewease started reeling in Madsen and was all over the Austalian invader for the lead when Kody Lehman got turned around in turn two and collected Jared Esh to bring out the red flag. Both drivers were ok.

Both Madsen and Dewease hugged the bottom of the speedway on the restart, but Dewease was able to take his car even lower exiting turn four. The two cars battled side by side on lap 8 and Dewease was able to use a slide job entering turn one to muscle ahead to lead lap nine.

"You know Kerry kind of surprised me early as I knew he wasn't starting beside me and he must've gotten one heck of a start," said Dewease. "I was really chasing him there and that restart was my chance. I got a couple good runs at him and was able to make the bottom stick and we just kind of took off."

Dewease stretched his lead to nearly a full straightaway with 12 laps remaining, while the battle behind him was getting intense. Mike Wagner, Logan Wagner and Anthony Macri all swapped the sixth position multiple times and the battle came to a close with 11 to go when the younger Wagner made incidental contact with his dad and sent him spinning on the front stretch to bring out the caution.

Cisney entered the picture with nine to go as he moved past Schuerenberg for a podium spot and he set his sights on Madsen. Meanwhile, Dewease was checking out. With clean air in front of him and heavy battling throughout the pack, Dewease stretched his lead to nearly five seconds as he took the checkered flag by 4.858 seconds for his 116th career Port Royal triumph.

"We came out here and practiced last night and the guys worked really hard to get us where we needed to be as we rolled off the truck and just didn’t feel very good," said Dewease. "Donny, Davey and the whole team just gave me a great car and I just had to be smart and make my moves and here we are."

For Madsen, in only his second start behind the wheel of the Mike Barshinger Racing No. 24, he was thrilled to be in contention so early in the season and believes it was Dewease's experience that played a factor.

"We have not been working together for too long but this Barshinger car is really fast and this gives us something to build on going forward," said Madsen. "I felt really good in turn's one and two, but I just never quite could figure out three and four. I must've tried every line out there and ultimately Lance just was better than us."

Anthony Macri picked up the $200 Hard Charger Award courtesy of Valley Supply Inc. by advancing eight positions to finish sixth, while Blane Heimbach, Schuerenberg, Lynton Jeffrey and Justin Peck rounded out the top ten. Lucas Wolfe scored an extra $1000 courtesy of J&S Fabrication by finishing 19th as a result of the random draw Warrior Award. Cisney also earned an additional $104 courtesy of the Port Royal Race Chasers.

Trevor Feathers backed up his 2020 Opening Day triumph by picking up his second consecutive victory on Opening Day by holding off a hard charging Tyler Bare and Ross Robinson. The win was Feathers second of his career at the speedway and was worth a whopping $3000.

"This place is premier around our area and there's not really anything else like this place where you can have these kind of fields on a colder opening day," said Feathers. "I was really good out in clean air and I just had to stay up top and really hit my marks. It's great to start the season off with a win."

Colton Flinner and Dan Stone rounded out the rest of the top-five.

Jason Miller and Feathers led the River Valley Builders Super Late Model field to the green flag with Feathers getting the early jump on the high side of the speedway. Fourth starter Bare established himself in the runner up position at the completion of lap one followed by Kanub and sixth starter Rick Eckert.

Feathers was setting a fast pace, but it was Eckert on the move. He moved into a podium spot on lap five and got by Bare for second on lap 10. As Feathers was struggling with lap traffic, it appeared Eckert was going to challenge for the lead, but he slowed off the pace with driveline issues the following lap and pulled off the speedway.

"I knew the top was the place to be if I wanted to be fast and I was kind of committed to staying up there," said Feathers. "I don’t know what happened to Rick but I knew he was coming and I just tried to stay focused on the task at hand and keep driving hard as I could."

Feathers stretched his lead in lap traffic the next five laps, but his tired were starring to go away and that allowed Bare to cut the distance in half. With five to go, Bare was within striking distance. With three laps to go, Bare had cut the distance to less than three car lengths.

Bare was using a unique 'Diamond" line in turn three and four to try and get a run down the backstretch, but Feathers was able to position himself and the lap cars in the perfect position to hold off the challenge.

The Virginia native crossed under the checkers by a margin of .282 seconds to claim the victory. After starting off last season with high expectations, Feathers struggled the rest of the year. He's hoping this year will be full of consistency.

"You know after we won last year it seemed we were constantly chasing the car and we just really struggled," said Feathers. "We were able to come out here and start off 2021 with a win again and I'm we can sustain this success and be in contention for a title at the end of the year."

For Bare, he felt like he missed an opportunity earlier in the race to be closer at the end and needed more laps to track down Feathers.

"I messed up going into turn one earlier in the race in lap traffic and I let Eckert get by me and I really knew I messed up," said Bare. "He dropped out and were able to get ourselves going again. I actually thought we had a few more laps and when I saw the white flag come out I knew we were just going to be a second place car. This is a great start to our year and I'm looking forward to the rest of the year."

Gregg Satterlee, Knaub, Jim Bernheisel, Gary Stuhler and Trent Brenneman rounded out the top ten. Dylan Yoder finished 11th and earned the $200 hard charger courtesy of George's Used Cars Inc.

Saturday, April 13, 2021 (7PM) 410 Sprints + 358 Sprints

Abbottstown, PA (March 13, 2021) – After surviving early race cautions, Danny Dietrich started his charge to the front of the field from 11th. Dietrich worked his way into the top five and was running third when the leader, Chase Dietz, had a mechanical issue ending his afternoon. Danny squeezed by Chad Trout for the lead with five laps to go and earned his 55th career win at Lincoln.

Freddie Rahmer started on the pole of the 30-lap feature and shared the front row with Bradley Howard. Rahmer led the field into turn 1 but the caution came out for Kyle Moody who got turned around in the first turn. Moody had lined up third for the start of the feature.

The field lined up for a complete restart with Rahmer and Howard getting together at the end of the front stretch. Rahmer took a wild ride bringing out the red flag. The melee at the front of the field caused a 10-car pile-up including Tim Wagaman, Brandon Rahmer, Scott Fisher, Steve Buckwalter, Rickey Peterson, Jordan Givler, Aaron Bollinger, Dylan Norris, Greg Plank and Troy Wagaman. In addition to Freddie and Howard not being able to rejoin the field, Brandon was also done for the afternoon.

Chase Dietz inherited the lead and led the field alongside Chad Trout for another complete restart. Dietz led the field into turn 1 with Billy Dietrich and Matt Campbell battling for third behind him. Billy took the spot at the line.

Jim Siegel was tracking down Campbell for fourth and took the spot at the line on lap 3.

Dietz entered lapped traffic on lap 5 with a 4.6 second lead over Trout.

Trout had Dietz’s lead down to 1.6 seconds by lap 10 as they worked through lapped traffic.

Danny was reeling in Campbell to work his way into the top 5 and took the spot on lap 11.

Billy had caught Trout and wanted second. Billy got a good look under Trout in turn 3 but a lapped car kept him from making the pass.

A three-car battle for third was on between Billy, Siegel and Dietrich. The Dietrich brothers split Siegel with Danny taking third, Billy falling to fourth and Siegel in fifth.

Campbell got by Siegel for fifth and then took fourth from Billy on lap 17.

The yellow flag flew on lap 18 for Greg Plank in turn 2. Plank collected Alan Krimes and Glenndon Forsythe.

Dietz led Trout, Danny, Campbell and Siegel on the restart. Dietz hung onto the lead and pulled away from the field while Campbell tried the inside of Danny and took third. Danny took the spot back with a slider in turn 4 before the caution came out on lap 20 for the leader, Dietz. Dietz appeared to have a mechanical failure when he hit the wall in turn 4.

Trout inherited the lead with Danny, Campbell, Siegel and Tim Shaffer lined up behind him for the restart. Campbell was the only driver to opt for the top in turns 1 and 2 on the restart. Siegel got a nose under Campbell, but he kept the spot.

Danny was all over Trout's back bumper on lap 22 and tried a slider for the lead in turns 3 and 4 to no avail.

Campbell was still using the top in turns 1 and 2 to reel in the leaders while Danny was using the top of turns 3 and 4 to hunt down Trout.

Danny squeezed by Trout coming out of turn 4 to take the lead with 5 laps to go. Now in second Trout was holding off Campbell. Campbell looked to the inside of Trout after getting a solid run out of turn 4 but couldn’t make the pass.

Danny got to the checkered flag 2.898 seconds ahead of Trout to take home $4,000. Campbell held on to third and Siegel finished fourth. Last week’s winner, Tim Shaffer, completed the top five.

Heat race winners were Tim Shaffer, Bradley Howard and Billy Dietrich. In addition to winning the feature Danny Dietrich was also the hard charger driving from his 15th starting spot to a 1st place finish.

Next Saturday, March 20, Lincoln Speedway is back in action with 410 Sprint Cars and 358 Sprint Cars. Racing starts at 6PM with pit gates opening at 3:30PM and grandstand gates opening at 4PM.

Port Royal Speedway Set to Try Again for 79th Annual Port Royal Speedway Opening Day on Saturday

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Penn. (March 1, 2021)- Racing is set to return to the Port Royal Speedway this Saturday, March 13th, as the Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Cars and the River Valley Builders Super Late Models take to the track for the 79th Annual Port Royal Speedway Opening Day presented by Packer's Concessions, LLC.

Originally scheduled to kick off the 2021 racing season last weekend, speedway officials and the track promotion team decided that with cold weather and high winds in the forecast that it would be in the best interest of all parties involved to delay the opener until this weekend in hopes of better weather conditions.

The 410 Sprint Cars will again be vying for a $5000 winner’s share, while the Super Late Models will duke it out for a $3000 prize to the victor.

All gates open at 1 P.M while racing is set to kick off at 4 P.M. Adult admission is $20, while students are $10. Pit admission is $30.

Last year, All Star Circuit of Champions invader Cory Eliason bested 45 other competitors to score his first career opening day triumph. Brent Marks, Logan Wagner, Lance Dewease and Anthony Macri rounded out the top-five.

Wagner is the series defending champion and is looking to join rare air in becoming only the second driver to ever win four consecutive track points championships. All-time winningest driver, Keith Kauffman, is the only other driver to accomplish the feat as he did so from 1978-1981. Speaking of Kauffman, Dewease sits 14 back of the ‘Man from Mifflintown’ on the career winns list with 115 victories and will be looking to chip away at that total for his fourth career opening day trophy.

Last year’s winningest sprint car driver at the speedway, Macri, will be searching for his first career opening day triumph along with a who’s-who list of regular competitors and expected invaders searching for the $5000 prize.

The last driver to triumph on opening day and go on to claim the season ending track points title was Todd Shaffer in 2008.

Valley Supply will again serve as the series hard charger presenter and there will be $200 on the line for the driver who passes the most cars. This will also be the debut of their fan incentive program where the fans will have the opportunity to bring home various Valley Supply swag and possibly $30 cash and tickets the following week’s racing event.

Also new to this season is the Jim and Sandy Kline J&S Fabrication Warrior Award where one lucky driver will earn $1000 extra as a result of a random draw. This award is designed specifically to benefit those who finish farther back in the field and drivers eligible will be position’s 7-24.

In Super Late Model competition, Virginia’s Trevor Feathers scored the opening day triumph last season over Dan Stone, Jason Covert, Andy Haus and Ross Robinson. Haus went on to score the season ending points championship for the second time in his career. He bested Dylan Yoder, Colton Flinner, Mike Lupfer and Gary Stuhler.

The Super Late Models have been a part of opening day festivities yearly since 2013 and both Haus and Covert have two career triumphs in the event. Other drivers to claim victory in the division on opening day are Tim Wilson, Lupfer and Jeff Rine. Rine turned his triumph into a track championship in 2018.

New to this season, the series will race for a minimum of $3000 to win and $300 to start. This is a $500 increase on last year’s winner’s share and will be the standard for all races in 2021 for the division. Geroge’s Used Cars Inc. Will serve as the presenter of the series hard charger award with the driver passing the most cars at the end of the night earning a cool $200 in cash. Driver’s must be carrying a decal that will be passed around earlier in the night to be eligible.

For fans choosing to watch from home, racing activities will again be available via PPV streaming on FloRacing and information regarding purchase can be found at ww.floracing.com.

Weather permitting, there will also be an open practice at the Speedway Friday March 12th from 6-9pm. The session is open to any division cars participating at the Speedway in 2021 and grandstand admission is free for any fans wishing to catch a glimpse of the facilities/cars.

Opening Day At Williams Grove Speedway Is Sunday At 2

Shaffer to make return as oval regular aboard Heffner mount, Madsen to debut

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

3/7/21

Mechanicsburg - Williams Grove Speedway will drop the green flag on the 2021 racing season coming up this Sunday, March 14 at 2 pm when it hosts the Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint cars for a $5,500 payday.

Presented by Hoosier, gates for the first event of the season will open at noon with warm ups slated for 1:30 pm.

The Sunday afternoon season lidlifter will feature the 410 sprints only in heat races and a 25-lap feature event.

Outlaws invader Carson Macedo of Lemoore, California, powered to the opening day sprint car victory at Williams Grove last March.

And there is already one invader slated to enter this week’s opener as Justin Henderson of Tea, South Dakota, a former regular at the track, has announced his plans to enter the fray of opening day.

The 2021 opener will also mark the return of Aliquippa’s Tim Shaffer to Williams Grove as a speedway regular when he rolls onto the track for the first time aboard the Mike Heffner No. 72 machine.

Shaffer was a regular at the track for one season in the early 2000s aboard the Apple Motorsports No. 12 sprinter.

Another new regular planning on making his debut on Sunday is Australian Kerry Madsen.

Madsen was named the new driver of the Michael Barshinger No. 24 in December and plans a full campaign at Williams Grove in 2021.

Macedo started third in the 25-lap opening day main last March and briefly fell backward during the early laps but managed to stay in the game behind leader Ryan Smith.

Danny Dietrich was chomping into Smith’s lead on the 16th tour when Macedo blasted to his outside in the first corner to steal second away before running down a struggling Smith to net command with 17 laps away.

Adult general admission for the 2021 season opener is set at $15 with youth ages 13-20 admitted for just $10. Youth ages 12 and under are always admitted for FREE at Williams Grove Speedway.

Williams Grove Season Opener Win List Full Of Standouts And Surprises

2021 Opener Is March 14

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

3/7/21

Mechanicsburg - Opening day at Williams Grove Speedway is a tradition that dates back to the maiden season in 1939 when The Flying Dutchman, Tommy Hinnershitz of Oley claimed the very first race held at the track.

And another chapter in Williams Grove lidlifter history is set to unfold this Sunday, March 14 at 2 pm when the 2021 season opener is spun off featuring the Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint cars.

Presented by Hoosier, gates for Opening Day 2020 will open at noon with the sprint cars racing for a $5,500 payday in a 25-lap main event.

Adult general admission is set at $15 with youth ages 13-20 admitted for just $10 while kids ages 12 and under are always admitted for FREE at Williams Grove Speedway.

A host of prominent and some not so well known names dot the opening day win list at Williams Grove Speedway.

Hinnershitz, a AAA East champion in his career, claimed a total of three openers.

Other top names of the 1940s and 1950s that scored the Williams Grove opener included Ted Horn, Jimmy Bryan, Johnny Mackison Sr. and more.

On his way to immortality for fans of the 1960s and 1970s, Leroy Felty scored the opener twice in his career, in 1961 and 1966.

A Texan destined for greatness by the name of AJ Foyt took the victory in 1964.

Another man on his way to racing immortality, Jan Opperman hit the local scene for his first of three Williams Grove opening day wins in 1970.

Other popular winners of the 1960s and 1970s included Kenny Weld, Dick Tobias, Kramer Williamson, Smokey Snellbaker, Ray Tilley and Bobby Allen.

The duo of Lynn Paxton and Keith Kauffman struck for a total of five lidlifter wins in the decade of the 1980s while a virtual unknown in sprint cars, Kevin Collins, upended the field in 1983.

The 1990s dawned with Kenny Adams scoring a victory before Don Kreitz Jr. and Fred Rahmer each took a pair of opener wins.

Brian Paulus closed the decade with what was perhaps considered an upset win before a youngster from Enumclaw, Washington, began the 2000s with an undisputed upset, coming at the hands of a pre-Nascar Kasey Kahne.

Greg Hodnett would etch his name on the historical first race win list twice during the 2000s while familiar names like Lance Dewease, Crish Eash, Kreitz and Rahmer would return along with a popular win for underdog Mike Erdley of Elizabethville.

Rahmer and Hodnett continued winning into the 2010s while first time checkers went to Danny Dietrich and Lucas Wolfe of Mechanicsburg.

By far, the upset of the decade of the 2010s came at the hands of New Oxford’s Gerard McIntyre Jr. in 2014.

Last year, California invader Carson Macedo took the victory for his first career oval victory.

SHAFFER AND HEFFNER TEAM GEL EARLY AND SCORE FIRST 410 WIN

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Saturday, March 13, 2021 (2PM) 410 Sprints + Central PA Legends

Saturday, March 20, 2021 (6PM) 410 Sprints + 358 Sprints

Saturday, March 27, 2021 (6PM) 410 Sprints + PASS/IMCA 305 Sprints

Abbottstown, PA (March 6, 2021) – Tim Shaffer has found success with car owner Mike Heffner early in the 2021 season. Shaffer followed up his impressive hard charger finish at last week’s Ice Breaker with a win on Saturday afternoon. Shaffer took the lead on lap 26 to earn his second career victory at the track.

Glenndon Forsythe started on the pole of the 30-lap feature. Missouri driver, Hunter Schuerenberg lined up second. Schuerenberg was one of two invaders to make the trip to race against the PA Posse despite the chilly weather. The second driver was Ohio-native Ricky Peterson.

After taking the green flag at the Mike Yeaple Starting Line Schuerenberg took the lead going into turn 1. Billy Dietrich used the outside line to get by Shaffer on the start for third.

The first caution of the race came on lap 1 when Chad Trout came to a stop on the front stretch. Trout stopped to alert track officials about a potential safety issue with Brandon Rahmer’s #88 machine. It appeared that the tail tank of Rahmer’s car was coming loose. Rahmer went to the pits and after assessing the situation the team decided to park the car. Trout rejoined the field.

Schuerenberg led Forsythe, Dietrich, Shaffer and Kyle Moody to the cone for the single-file restart. Hunter had a solid restart and caught the tail end of the field by lap 6.

The yellow flag waved again on lap 7 when Chad Trout had a right rear tire blow. Trout slowed on the front stretch in front of the leader, Schuerenberg, and the two made contact. Hunter had visible front wing damage but opted to stay out on the track.

Dietrich got to the inside of Forsythe for second on the restart, but the red flag came out for Steve Buckwalter who got upside-down in turns 1 and 2, in almost the same exact spot as he did last week.

Shaffer looked to the outside of Dietrich on the restart to try and take third while Forsythe looked to the outside of Schuerenberg for the lead. Neither could make the pass.

On the next lap Shaffer got by Dietrich for third off the bottom of turn 2 and started reeling in Forsythe.

With significant damage to the front of Schuerenberg’s car, his lead was dwindling as the battle for second continued behind him.

Shaffer and Forsythe crossed the line side by side on lap 17 with Shaffer having the slight advantage to take second place.

Dietrich followed and took third from Forsythe as the two raced down the back stretch.

Shaffer caught the leader, Schuerenberg, as they approached lapped traffic with 10 laps to go. Dietrich caught the leaders to make it a three-way battle for the lead.

Shaffer was using the bottom line around the 3/8-mile oval with Hunter running one groove up above Shaffer’s line.

Shaffer took the lead by a nose at the line on lap 26. Dietrich once again tried to follow, but the lapped car of Dylan Norris kept him from taking second.

Shaffer crossed the line 2.409 seconds ahead of Schuerenberg for his second career win at Lincoln. Schuerenberg had a broken left front shock in addition to the damage to his front wing. Despite the damage Hunter held on to finish second. Dietrich finished third and Forsythe was fourth. Moody rounded out the top five.

Heat race winners were Tim Shaffer, Tim Glatfelter and Glenndon Forsythe. Danny Dietrich was the hard charger driving from his 15th starting spot to a 6th place finish.

Next Saturday, March 13, Lincoln Speedway is back in action with 410 Sprint Cars and Central PA Legends. Racing starts at 2PM with pit gates opening at 11:30AM and grandstand gates opening at noon.

Port Royal Speedway to Postpone 79th Annual Opening Day Until Saturday March 13th

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Penn. (March 5, 2021)- As a result of the feedback we have been receiving from the drivers, owners and motor manufacturers and taking into consideration the fans, we have made the decision to cancel this weekend’s Sunday, March 7, 79th annual opening day racing activities at Port Royal Speedway, due to anticipated cold weather and high winds.

Speedway officials and the track promotion team have been monitoring the weather throughout the week and after much deliberation, decided it was in the best intertest of all parties involved to delay racing for another week.

As a result, we will hold a test and tune session on Friday, March 12, that is open to all divisions. It will be from 6-9pm EST and is $25 for pit passes with free general admission for fans.

Opening day will now be held on Saturday, March 13, and it will again feature the Weikert's Livestock 410 sprint cars racing for $5000 to win and the river Valley Builders super late models racing for $3000 to win.

General Admission will again be $20, Students will be $10 and Pit Admission will be $30.

We thank you for your continued cooperation and enthusiasm and we look forward to seeing everyone next weekend as we kick off the 2021 racing season. Please stay tuned to our website and various social media outlets for further updates throughout the week.

 

 

~ Selinsgrove Speedway ~ A New Identity In The Twenty-Twenty’s

Local Businessman Todd Benner Joins Mike Heffner, Brian Scandle To Promote Selinsgrove Speedway

3/1/21

Selinsgrove, Pa. – As a new season of auto racing dawns at Selinsgrove Speedway, a fresh face has joined the promotional and management team at Selinsgrove Speedway as Selinsgrove businessman Todd Benner has joined Speedway Management Group LLC, the management team that currently heralds the historic oval’s efforts.

Benner, owner of nearby Selinsgrove Ford, has been involved in local sprint car racing on a sponsorship level for over a decade and has supplied the speedway’s pace truck for some 20 years while supporting the oval with other sponsorship efforts.

At the same time, fellow local business leader Brian Scandle of NRG Controls North, who has been part of the management team since its inception in 2016, will be increasing his role at the facility.

Both Scandle, of Sunbury, and Benner plan on taking active roles in not only speedway promotion but in race night activity as well.

“I'm excited to have Todd join our team as we work to make Selinsgrove Speedway a premium race track in central PA,” Scandle said.

General Manager Steve Inch of Lewisburg and majority partner Mike Heffner of Hellertown will continue their roles as lead members of the Selinsgrove management team.

Mike Heffner, well known as a successful sprint car owner and businessman, has been the driving force in the promotion of the speedway since Speedway Management Group LLC. was formed five years ago.

"I look forward to working with both Todd and Brian,” says Heffner.

“Together, their involvement will add to the success of the speedway not only this year but into the future as well.”

His move into the role of promoter at the speedway for the new season comes naturally to the fifty-five year old Benner, now a third-generation owner of Selinsgrove Ford.

“I guess racing has always been in my blood,” says Benner of his move into promoter.

“My dad (Ray) took me to the track when he owned the Selinsgrove Motors #63 late model driven by Paul Long in the 70’s and as I started to get more involved at Selinsgrove Ford, I wanted to have a relationship with Selinsgrove Speedway.”

Benner views his personal step up at Selinsgrove Speedway as a continuation of Selinsgrove Ford’s mission to be supportive of the community.

“Helping out in our community is what Selinsgrove Ford is all about,” Benner says.

“My passion for the track has only grown stronger. So I’m looking forward to working with all the Selinsgrove Speedway team members to continue to improve the track, to have great communication with the owners and drivers, and to have exciting racing for our growing fan base!”

Alan Kreitzer, an original member of the Selinsgrove Speedway promotional team, will now step back from active management of the speedway.

"The team of Mike Heffner, Brian Scandle and Todd Benner gives Selinsgrove a great management team moving forward", said Kreitzer "and I am very optimistic about the future of Selinsgrove Speedway.”

"We would like to thank Alan for all of his efforts in helping with the improvements at Selinsgrove Speedway since our group took over promotional duties in 2016,” noted Heffner.

"While we started as partners, we have also become good friends and I am happy that Alan will continue to be part of our team in an advisory capacity.”

General Manager Inch, who has been involved in the operations of the speedway for more than 30 years, echoes Heffner’s thoughts, “I’d like to thank Alan for his guidance over the last five years to keep Selinsgrove’s racing tradition alive and well,” he said.

“I look forward to Todd joining our promotional team for the track’s 75th anniversary. The Benner family is very generous in supporting community organizations and the speedway has been a beneficiary of their support for many years.”

Benner and Selinsgrove Ford will host Race Day At The Dealership coming up this Saturday from 10 am – 2 pm, offering season schedules and seat sales.

Selinsgrove Speedway will host a practice session, open to any division on the 2021 schedule, one week later on March 13 from 1 – 4 pm.

And then the track will open the 2021 season coming up on March 20 at 2 pm with the Short Track Super Series Northeast Modified Icebreaker 40 and the Crate 602 Sportsman Modifieds.

Sprint Cars and Super Late Models to Headline 79thAnnual Port Royal Speedway Opening Day on Sunday

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Penn. (March 1, 2021)- The sounds of roaring engines are set to return to the Port Royal Speedway this Sunday, March 7th, as the Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Cars and the River Valley Builders Super Late Models take to the track for the 79th Annual Port Royal Speedway Opening Day presented by Packer’s Concessions LLC.

In what has been a recent tradition, the Speedway will again utilize a Sunday opener where the Sprint Cars will compete for a $5000 winner’s share while the Super Late Models will race for an increased $3000 to win prize.

All gates open at 11A.M while racing is set to kick off at 2 P.M. Adult admission is $20, while students are $10. Pit admission is $30.

Last year, All Star Circuit of Champions invader Cory Eliason bested 45 other competitors to score his first career opening day triumph. Brent Marks, Logan Wagner, Lance Dewease and Anthony Macri rounded out the top-five.

Wagner is the series defending champion and is looking to join rare air in becoming only the second driver to ever win four consecutive track points championships. All-time winningest driver, Keith Kauffman, is the only other driver to accomplish the feat as he did so from 1978-1981. Speaking of Kauffman, Dewease sits 14 back of the ‘Man from Mifflintown’ on the career winns list with 115 victories and will be looking to chip away at that total for his fourth career opening day trophy.

Last year’s winningest sprint car driver at the speedway, Macri, will be searching for his first career opening day triumph along with a who’s-who list of regular competitors and expected invaders searching for the $5000 prize.

The last driver to triumph on opening day and go on to claim the season ending track points title was Todd Shaffer in 2008.

Valley Supply will again serve as the series hard charger presenter and there will be $200 on the line for the driver who passes the most cars. This will also be the debut of their fan incentive program where the fans will have the opportunity to bring home various Valley Supply swag and possibly $30 cash and tickets the following week’s racing event.

Also new to this season is the Jim and Sandy Kline J&S Fabrication Warrior Award where one lucky driver will earn $1000 extra as a result of a random draw. This award is designed specifically to benefit those who finish farther back in the field and drivers eligible will be positions 7-24.

In Super Late Model competition, Virginia’s Trevor Feathers scored the opening day triumph last season over Dan Stone, Jason Covert, Andy Haus and Ross Robinson. Haus went on to score the season ending points championship for the second time in his career. He bested Dylan Yoder, Colton Flinner, Mike Lupfer and Gary Stuhler.

The Super Late Models have been a part of opening day festivities yearly since 2013 and both Haus and Covert have two career triumphs in the event. Other drivers to claim victory in the division on opening day are Tim Wilson, Lupfer and Jeff Rine. Rine turned his triumph into a track championship in 2018.

New to this season, the series will race for a minimum of $3000 to win and $300 to start. This is a $500 increase on last year’s winner’s share and will be the standard for all races in 2021 for the division. Geroge’s Used Cars Inc. Will serve as the presenter of the series hard charger award with the driver passing the most cars at the end of the night earning a cool $200 in cash. Driver’s must be carrying a decal that will be passed around earlier in the night to be eligible.

For fans choosing to watch from home, racing activities will again be available via PPV streaming on FloRacing and information regarding purchase can be found at ww.floracing.com.

Weather permitting, there will also be an open practice at the Speedway March 6th from 1-4pm. The session is open to any division cars participating at the Speedway in 2021 and grandstand admission is free for any fans wishing to catch a glimpse of the facilities/cars.

Rahmer Ready For Williams Grove Title Defense, Opener Is March 14

2/28/21

Mechanicsburg - Reigning Williams Grove Speedway track champion Freddie Rahmer may only be 25 years old as he embarks on the 2021 racing season, but he has the perspective of a driver twenty years his elder as he eyes the oval’s season opener coming up in just two weeks.

The Cumberland County track will open the new season with a 410 sprint car only racing program coming up on on Sunday afternoon, March 14 at 2 pm.

The Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprints will race in a $5,500 to win, 25-lap main event to cap off the afternoon, presented by Hoosier Tire.

Rahmer and his RBR Racing No. 51 sprint car team are ready to defend his 2020 track title when they hit the clay at Williams Grove in two weeks.

“I think we are in good shape. We might be a little more prepared than we’ve been the last couple years,” Rahmer says of his team’s readiness for another assault on the prestigious track laurels.

“We work as hard as you can all winter. We don’t take too much time off at all. If we don’t start off good, we’ll work at it and make it good.”

“We are gonna’ shoot for that,” Rahmer says of his intentions to put up back to back track crowns during the new season ahead.

“We’re gonna’ try to win races first but that’s a goal. We’re gonna’ try again for sure.”

Rahmer also took a track crown in 2017, his first in the sport.

“I don’t think I’ve shown what we’re capable of yet and hopefully this year me and my dad and everyone else can just break through and show what we’re capable of really,” he says of his past performances and how they might stack up against the races to come.

“ I think we’ve been close in the last couple years, I know we’re capable of going to the next step up.”

Rahmer says mostly he thinks it all will come down to him, personally, as he sits in the race car, at speed.

“I don’t think we’re missing anything equipment-wise or anything you can purchase,” Rahmer says.

“I’m always focused when we’re there but to try to get the best we can out of every lap - I think things build on each other but I think It’s mostly me, being in a good mental spot at the race track and I think we’re in a good position to do that.”

And according to Rahmer, all the extra purse money that Williams Grove announced for the 2021 season in December made it a, “no-brainer,” to decide to stay at Williams Grove on Fridays for the new season when the team was making its plans during the winter months.

“It’s a no-brainer. We’re 100 miles from the track. They didn’t have to do it and they did and it’s the best paying local track and one of the best in the whole country so we’re definitely gonna’ support them,” Rahmer noted.

“We’re lucky to race there.”

Fans will be treated to a pleasing $15 adult general admission price for what is sure to be a great field of sprinters on hand for the lidlifter.

Youth ages 13 – 20 will be admitted for $10 while kids ages 12 and under are always FREE at Williams Grove Speedway.

View the entire 2021 Williams Grove Speedway schedule of events and keep up to date on all the latest speedway news and information by visiting the oval’s official website located at www.williamsgrove.com or by following the track on Twitter and Facebook.

Abbottstown, PA (February 27, 2021) – Tim Wagaman followed up his 2020 Most Improved Driver award with an Ice Breaker win on Saturday. Wagaman accepted his award on the front stretch right before buckling in for the 30-lap feature. Saturday’s win was Wagaman’s first since 2014.

Wagaman lined up on the outside of the front row, next to pole-sitter, Kyle Moody. Moody took the lead when the green flag dropped to kick-off the 2021 season.

Defending track champion Freddie Rahmer pulled off after the first lap along with Steve Buckwalter.

Moody had just caught the tail end of the field when the yellow came out on lap 5 for Jordan Mackison who had come to a stop in turn 4.

Glenndon Forsythe went to the pits during the caution, ending his day. He had been running 19th. Before the green flag waved for the restart, Greg Plank came to a stop in turn 1. Plank got a push back to the pits and parked his #11P for the day.

Moody led Wagaman, Matt Campbell, Tim Glatfelter, and Chase Dietz to the cone for the restart.

Wagaman got to the outside of Moody going into turn 1 and the two drag raced down the back stretch. Wagaman got by Moody going into turn 3 to take the lead.

While the battle for the lead was underway, both Justin Peck and Tim Shaffer were making their way through the field. Peck was running ninth and battling Macri for eighth after starting 18th in the main event. Shaffer was up to 14th from his 24th starting spot.

The defending Ice Breaker winner, Danny Dietrich pulled off the track on lap, he had been running 19th.

Wagaman entered lapped traffic on lap 11 while Campbell challenged Moody for second.

Another caution came out on lap 12 when Scott Fisher fell off the pace on the back stretch.

This time the field was chasing Wagaman on the restart. Chase Dietz and Jordan Givler got spun around in turns 1 and 2 on the restart bringing out the caution.

Wagaman paced the field ahead of Moody, Campbell, Glatfelter, and Alan Krimes for another restart.

Tim had a solid start and got a good jump on Moody. Dylan Cisney restarted sixth and had a rough restart, but the field avoided him for a clean start.

The top three, Wagaman, Moody and Campbell were pulling away as they caught the tail end of the field once again.

As Wagaman tried to get by the lapped car of Rick Lafferty, Moody was able to close the gap. It also opened the door for Campbell to challenge Moody for second. Campbell got under Moody in turns 1 and 2 and took the second spot on lap 20.

A three car battle for the lead was well underway when Campbell got sideways at the end of the front stretch nearly taking out Moody and himself. Moody kept his composure and held on to second. Campbell’s misstep sent him back to fourth. K

Moody was within striking distance of Wagaman when the white flag waved but could not find a way by Wagaman.

Wagaman crossed the line .257 seconds ahead of Moody for his first win since 2014. Glatfelter finished third and Krimes was fourth. Campbell completed the top five.

Heat race winners were Dylan Cisney, Alan Krimes and Dylan Norris. Tim Shaffer was the hard charger driving from his 24th starting spot to a 12th place finish.

Next Saturday, March 6, Lincoln Speedway is back in action with 410 Sprint Cars and open practice. Racing starts at 2PM with pit gates opening at 11:30AM and grandstand gates opening at noon. The open practice is open to divisions on the 2021 Lincoln Speedway schedule.

Selinsgrove Speedway Season Laced With 75th Anniversary Events

2/21/21

Selinsgrove, Pa. – The 75th anniversary season of auto racing at Selinsgrove Speedway is set to get underway in one month when the Short Track Super Series modified circuit hits the track for the oval opener on March 20.

And the entire season at Selinsgrove Speedway will be laced with special events that give a shout out to the commemorative 75th milestone.

The first such event comes up on Saturday, May 15 with the running of the Super Late Model 46er.

The super lates will compete in the 46-lap event meant to represent the opening year of Selinsgrove Speedway, 1946.

Next up, the Modern Heritage 410 sprint cars will gather to compete in the Pennsylvania Speedweek Finale on Sunday, July 4 paying $7,500 to win.

And then a pair of special 75th anniversary races for the Modern Heritage 410s and the super late models will be staged coming up Tuesday night, July 20 at 7:30 pm.

The rare mid-week event at Selinsgrove Speedway will take place exactly 75 years to the date that the very first race ever to be contested at the track was staged back on July 20, 1946.

A few weeks later the second running of the Bill Holland Classic for USAC Silver Crown Champ Cars will take center stage.

The Holland Classic will honor the very first winner at the track on that day back in 1946, and it will again go 75-laps in distance while paying $8,075 to the winner in keeping with the 75th anniversary theme.

It will be a season-long celebration at Selinsgrove Speedway in 2021 as the half-mile facility remembers its roots with big races, big purses and big names in local and national dirt track racing.

To get the season started, the STSS Modifieds will race 40 laps for $5,000 to win, $1,000 for 10th and $400 to take the green flag from a purse totaling more than $25,570 on March 20. STSS Crate 602 Sportsman will take part in a 25-lap feature with $1,500 going to the winner and $100 to take the green flag.

The speedway will return a week later, on Sunday, March 28 at 2 pm with March Madness for the Modern Heritage 410 sprint cars and the super late models.

The oval and Selinsgrove Ford in Selinsgrove will host Race Day At The Dealership from 10 am – 2 pm on Saturday, March 6 featuring season schedules and seat sales.

Selinsgrove Speedway will host a practice session one week later on March 13 from 1 – 4 pm.

Selinsgrove Partners With SprintCarUnlimited.TV To Broadcast 11 Big Events In 2021

2/19/21

Selinsgrove, Pa. – Selinsgrove Speedway has partnered with SprintCarUnlimited.TV to offer live Pay-Per-View coverage of 11 big events at the historic oval during this upcoming 75th anniversary season.

Management inked the deal with SprintCarUnlimited.TV/DirtTrackDigest.TV on Friday.

After years of streaming modified events in the Northeast, DirtTRackDigest.TV recently announced a partnership with SprintCarUnlimited.com to branch out in the Pay-Per-View streaming media forum into the sprint car racing market.

But the broadcast Selinsgrove events will not only cover the Modern Heritage 410 sprint cars.

Also slated to be on the covered racing cards are super late models, limited late models, 360 sprints and 305 sprint cars.

And perhaps the best news for potential viewers is that the broadcasts DO NOT require a membership to any website or broadcast media in order to dial-up the races from Selinsgrove or from any other SprintCarUnlimited.TV broadcasts at any track.

Viewers will simply log on to www.SprintCarUnlimited.TV and purchase the race in order to start watching all the action from Selinsgrove Speedway.

“We’re really happy to partner with Jeremy Elliott and Mike Mallett and SprintCarUnlimited.TV to broadcast so many of our biggest races to audiences all around the world during the 2021 season,” said Selinsgrove promoter Mike Heffner of the broadcast deal.

“This deal really is so versatile and viewer and track friendly that it just made a lot of sense to us to showcase our varied schedule to all walks of dirt track fans through SprintCarUnlimited.TV. We hope that the fans who can’t make it to Selinsgrove this year give our broadcasts a look.”

SprintCarUnlimited.TV will broadcast its first race of the 2021 Selinsgrove Speedway season coming up on Sunday afternoon, March 28 when the oval presents March Madness for the Modern Heritage 410 sprints and the super late models at 2 pm.

Pay-Per-View purchase prices will always be posted in advance on SprintCarUnlimited.TV and pre-purchases will be available.

With the 75th anniversary racing season looming, Selinsgrove Speedway is eyeing its season opener coming up on Saturday, March 20 at 2 pm when the Short Track Super Series Icebreaker for combined modified competition takes the stage.

The STSS Modifieds will race 40 laps for $5,000 to win, $1,000 for 10th and $400 to take the green flag from a purse totaling more than $25,570 on March 20. STSS Crate 602 Sportsman will take part in a 25-lap feature with $1,500 going to the winner and $100 to take the green flag.

Lincoln Speedway’s Ice Breaker Foiled by Mother Nature, Postponed to February 27

Abbottstown, PA (February 17, 2021) – Lincoln Speedway was forced to postpone their annual Ice Breaker due to the forces of Mother Nature. With the low temperatures and snow already on the ground with more forecasted to come, track officials made the decision to delay racing at the speedway until next weekend.

“We know that fans and race teams look forward to the Ice Breaker all off-season, there’s nothing better than seeing the shiny new racecars on the track for the first time.” said General Manager, Jerry Parrish. “Everyone at Lincoln Speedway is excited to get the season started, and we look forward to getting the Ice Breaker in as soon as Mother Nature cooperates.”

The Ice Breaker is now scheduled for Saturday, February 27 at 2:00pm. Last year the Ice Breaker was a huge success with a great turn out of fans and race cars with Danny Dietrich earning his second career Opening Day victory. The Ice Breaker has only been run in February 14 of the last 25 years. The first attempt at a February race came in 1994. That year the race was pushed back four weeks and a day due to weather. Following the first attempt the track ran successfully in February for six years. If Lincoln would have been able to get the race in this coming Saturday, they would join 1999 as the earliest the track has opened. In 1999 Lincoln Speedway held their opener on February 20, which is the earliest the track has opened. Fred Rahmer sits atop the win list of Opening Day wins at Lincoln with seven.

Located in Abbottstown, PA, the 3/8th-mile high-banked clay oval has been a staple in professional auto racing for over 60 years. The Pigeon Hills oval is one of several famed Central Pennsylvania race tracks which represent the toughest, most competitive weekly sprint car racing in the nation. A family fun night to be had by all who visit the famed Lincoln Speedway!

Parrish continued, “Hopefully fans will want to make the trip to watch a race live after seeing the consistently great racing we have at our weekly shows on FloRacing.”

USAC NON-WING SPRINTS, RICH IN HISTORY IN BERKS COUNTY, RETURN WITH TWO STOPS AT GRANDVIEW IN 2021, THURSDAY, APRIL 22 & TUESDAY, JUNE 15

BECHTELSVILLE, PA . . . . . Way back in 1956, Oley, PA sprint car driver Tommy Hinnershitz mastered the Reading Fairgrounds Speedway to win the first ever USAC Sprint car show in Berks County. He not only won the first race, but repeated again in 1957 and 1958. Since that time, seventy-two USAC events graced Berks County, taking place at Reading as well as the Grandview Speedway. The USAC history at Reading continued until 1979 when the track closed. The roster of USAC winners at Reading is legendary and to name just a few who join Hinnershitz on the win list include A.J. Foyt, Johnny Thomson, Eddie Sachs, Jim Hurtibise, Roger McCluskey, Bobby Unser, Johnny Rutherford, Red Riegel, Greg Weld, Bruce Walkup, Larry Dickson, Gary Bettenhausen, Toby Tobias, Pancho Carter, Larry “Boom Boom” Cannon, Lee Osborne and Ronnie Shuman. Paul Pitzer won the USAC finale at Reading in 1979.

Twenty-eight years later, the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series led by Bruce Rogers and Bob Miller, re-introduced USAC non-wing sprint car racing to Berks and other surrounding counties with the birth of the USAC Eastern Storm in 2007, that opened at the one-third mile Grandview Speedway in Bechtelsville, PA. The USAC Eastern Storm has been growing in this area ever since that first race.

This was the start of another tradition that brought nationally recognized sprint car drivers back to Berks County. The current day USAC stars and feature winners include Jesse Hockett, Bryan Clauson, Levi Jones, “Macho Man Brady Bacon”, Cole Whitt, “The Mad Man” Robert Ballou, Chris Windom, “The Modern Day Cowboy” Daron Clayton and C.J. Leary. This is a traveling organization certainly strong with drivers who have strong and defining personalities

Another piece of interesting history is that in 8 of the first 12 Eastern Storm Series, the driver who claimed the annual Eastern Storm title in June, translated that success to become the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car champion later that same year. So there is a correlation between the Eastern Storm and the USAC season long title winner of that same year.

In 2021, the Thunder on the Hill Racing Series at Grandview Speedway will host two USAC Amsoil National Non-Wing Sprint Tour events. The “Rub Rails & Rooster Tails” 40 is set for Thursday night, April 22 with $6,000 going to the winner . Broken Arrow, Oklahoma driver Brady Bacon will be looking to make it four wins in a row at Grandview. The record for most consecutive Thunder on the Hill victories is held by Greg Hodnett, with four wins coming on July 3, 2012, July 30, 2013, July 1, 2014 and July 29, 2014. Winning on this tricky and very demanding one third mile speedway is a challenge on any given night so winning three or even four in a row is quite an accomplishment. The 358 NASCAR Modifieds will be on the program in an always popular double-header event that will get underway at 7:30 PM.

The official 2021 Eastern Storm will head our way with Thunder on the Hill and Grandview Speedway hosting the opener on Tuesday night, June 15. This event will be the Jesse Hockett Classic, a 40 lap $6,000 to win kickoff to the five nights of racing and the 358 NASCAR Modifieds will join the double header starting at 7:30 PM.

Other Thunder Series race dates include Sunday night, May 30 (Memorial Day weekend) with the running of the Big Block/358 Modified Triple 20’s joined by the Sportsman and the Outlaw Vintage Racing Series. This event will start at 7:30 PM. Kevin Hirthler, the 2020 Thunder on the Hill Modified Champion is excited about the return of this event. Hirthler has his eye on that Pioneer Pole Building bonus for any driver that can sweep all three 20 lap features in one night!

Tuesday, June 29 will mark the return of the Pennsylvania 410 Sprint Speed Week event, dubbed the Hodnett Cup paying $10,000 to the winner of the 35 lap feature. This event is presented in the memory of local sprint car great and former Thunder on the Hill Champion, Greg Hodnett. The 358 Modifieds will gear up for this highly attended program that will have a 7:30 PM.

The USAC Midgets are returning to Grandview for the Ken Brenn Midget Masters on Tuesday night, August 3 in a double-show with the 358 Modifieds. The USAC Midgets are perfect on the high-banked one third mile Grandview oval. Thursday night, August 26 Tony Stewart’s All Star Circuit of Champion sprints will hit the “hill” teaming up with the 358 Modifieds. In 2020, this race was a thriller with Danny Dietrich take the lead and the win in the final laps from All Star Champion Aaron Reutzel. Race time is set for 7:30 PM.

The season finale is set for the Saturday night, October 16 with the MODS at the MADHOUSE Triple 20’s for the Big Block/358 Modifieds joined by the Sportsman. In 2020, the Triple 20’s event was a big success, attracting a field of fifty modifieds. Kevin Hirthler, Ryan Beltz and Duane Howard shared the Triple 20’s victories and race time for this event is scheduled for 6 PM.

Continue support of the Thunder on the Hill Racing Series is provided by NAPA Auto Parts, Levan Machine & Truck Equipment in Fleetwood, PA and Pioneer Pole Buildings. All three play a key role is the on-going success of the Thunder Series.

In the thirty-one previous years, there has been 140 Thunder on the Hill events with the payout in excess of $4,976,000. The all-time Thunder on the Hill feature winners list is a who’s who of dirt tracking racings’ local and national stars.

Fans will be the winners at Williams Grove during the 2021 season as adult general admission prices for numerous programs that have been infused with cash have NOT been increased but rather decreased.

Aside from the March 14 season opener, special $15 adult admission price nights include March 26 for 410 sprints and super late models, April 23 for 410s and 358 sprints, May 21 for 410s and 358s, June 11 for 410s and 358s and July 30 for both sprint car divisions.

Jim and Sandy Kline to Support Port Royal Speedway Sprint Car Drivers with Weekly $1000 Warrior Award

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Penn. (Jan 25, 2021)- Longtime car owners and supporters of the Central Pennsylvania race scene, Jim and Sandy Kline will be the official sponsors of the J & S Fabrication “Warrior Award” for the 2021 race season at Port Royal Speedway.

The “Warrior Award” will allow some lucky sprint car driver each week to pocket a cool $1000 in cash and will benefit those who finish farther back in the field. Beginning March 7th with the 79th annual Port Royal Speedway Opening Day kickoff and running through the Sept. 11th 54th annual Tuscarora 50, a winner will be drawn weekly in victory lane to receive the first-year award and the money.

For all regular weekly 410 Sprint Car Weikert’s Livestock events, the numbers eligible will be from seven to 24 and whoever finishes in the position number drawn will receive $1000 as that week’s winner. For all six of the Ollie’s Bargain Outlets All Star Circuit of Champions events and the two PA Speedweek shows the numbers will represent positions 11 to 24.

“Being a part of this sport for so long as we have, we are well aware how tough it can be on a driver to compete and run well week in and week out,” said Jim Kline, owner of J&S Fabrication. “Only one driver comes home the winner each night and we want to make sure the guys who are working just as hard to compete and don’t win can be rewarded as well.

“Maybe it goes to a guy who gets caught up in a wreck and tears of equipment or maybe it goes to a low buck guy that’s just making ends meet? Everybody in the field works their tail off to go out there and put on a show and this is just our way of spreading the love and further giving back to the sport we love,” he added.

J & S Fabrication is located in Grantville, Pa and has been in operation since 1990. They are a commercial industrial HVAC contractor and can be reached at 717-469-1409 for all your needs. Kline noted that it was the desire to go racing at a high level that inspired him and his wife to start up the business and without racing they wouldn’t be as successful.

“It’s wild to think, but I actually started J&S Fabrication with the thought that if we could be successful enough as a business, we could fund a racing team and further support the sport even more,” said Kline. “I met my wife at a racetrack many years ago and some of the best times of our lives have been spent sprint car racing. So, we’re excited to do this for the drivers and teams and hopefully it’ll become a yearly deal.”

He added that he appreciates all the hard work that Port Royal Speedway has put into making it a premier racing destination and he wanted to reward that hard work by being part of the 2021 race season.

“Back when we raced at Port Royal years ago, everybody from the officials to the workers always treated us with respect and love and we’ve never forgotten that,” said Kline. “Now as I look around and see how much work they are doing to make their facility great and special; I want to reward that effort and I’m proud to be a part of a track like Port Royal Speedway.”

Speedway head promoter Steve O’Neal added that he appreciates everything Jim & Sandy Kline has done for the sport and is looking forward to continuing to build on a relationship that goes back decades.

“You can’t talk about Central PA racing and car owners without adding Jim and Sandy Kline to the mix and we are incredibly proud and happy to present this Warrior Award from J&S Fabrication in 2021,” said O’Neal. “This is a huge deal for our drivers and we could not do it without the support of the Kline’s. I can’t thank them enough for choosing Port Royal Speedway and I’m excited for 2021.”

Valley Supply Stepping Up Big in 2021 for Port Royal Speedway Drivers and Fans

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Penn. (Dec. 21, 2020) Less than a month ago, Port Royal Speedway announced an increase on the winner’s share for all of the Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 races for the 2021 season. Thanks to one of our valued partners, the Saturday night April 17th event just got even bigger.

Valley Supply has come on board as the presenting sponsor for the sixth annual Keith Kauffman Classic and the winner will now receive $10,000 to win. Originally announced as paying $8000 to the winner for this season, the $10,000 marks a $4000 dollar increase from last year’s amount. The event honors Kauffman, a 24-time winner with the All Stars and the winningest driver in the history of Port Royal Speedway.

Joining the 410 Sprint Cars on the schedule for the night will be the Limited Late Models racing for a $1500 winner’s share.

Valley Supply driver Anthony Macri picked up the win during last years event. The company also serves as a sponsor for Dylan Cisney.

“To be affiliated with a legend like Keith Kauffman can only help our company and we see this is a great opportunity and an honor” said Harvey Sipe, owner of Valley Supply. “Sponsoring Port Royal Speedway and big events like the All Star Circuit of Champions will do great things for our company and we love supporting a sport whose fans are so passionate and deserving.”

For the 2021 race season at the Speedway, Valley Supply will also be offering a $200 Hard Charger award weekly to the night’s biggest mover in 410 Sprint Car competition. This marks the second year in a row they will be offering the bonus.

“The hard charger sometimes is the best race on the track and it’s something we really love doing,” said Sipe. “And sometimes that money can go to a smaller team who is deserving and every little bit can go a long way in helping those teams.”

The incentives don’t stop at the drivers though, as Valley Supply will be getting the fans involved in 2021 as well. Each week at the main gate entrance, Valley Supply will be handing out various swag such as footballs, hats, shirts and more. Those giveaways will have numbers attached to them representing the starting positions for the night’s 410 feature event.

If the fan has the number with the driver who earns the Valley Supply Hard Charger award for that evening, they will receive $30 cash courtesy of Valley Supply. Some of the giveaways will also carry a symbol in the place of a number and if a fan has that item, they will receive $30 cash along with a free pass to the next week’s racing event.

“We love supporting the drivers on the track, but this is a way to get the fans involved and make things more exciting throughout the night,” said Sipe. “Port Royal has a great fan base and, on most nights, they stick around for all the divisions. Hopefully by doing this, maybe we can convince that extra fan to stick around and have a chance at winning some cool prizes throughout the year.”

Valley Supply has been a family-owned business for more than 40 years and has been serving the Central PA construction business since 1980 with on time deliveries, knowledgeable employees, and competitive pricing. They provide various products via delivery for all your construction needs and their service covers 80% of Pennsylvania, Northern Maryland, Northeast West Virginia, and Southern New York.

12/11/20

Mechanicsburg - Along with releasing its 2021 schedule of events, Williams Grove Speedway has also announced a revamp of its regular 410 and 358 sprint car purse structures.

All Williams Grove Diamond Series races for the 410 sprint cars, of which 10 are slated, will now pay a minimum of $6,000 to the winner including 1K from a sponsor.

Yellow Breeches 500 races for 410s have bumped to $5,000 to win including 1K from a sponsor while still posting the standard $500 to start.

And Williams Grove Speedway will pay the victor of 11 other weekly races for the super sprints a total of $5,500 for the top spot, again with 1K included from a sponsor.

Williams Grove has also posted additional increases throughout all three regular sprint car purses while the 358 sprint cars will also see an increase.

Bob Weikert Memorial to Pay a Record 29k To Win as Part of Increased Winner’s Share for All Star Circuit of Champions Visits to Port Royal Speedway in 2021

 
 By-Justin Snyder

 
 Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Pa. (Dec. 4, 2020) Continuing a tradition that began in 1981, when Lynn Paxton won the first ever All Star Circuit of Champions sanctioned event at 'The Speed Palace', Port Royal Speedway is proud to once again host the Ollie's Bargain Outlets All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 during the 2021 race season.

 

 The series will visit the Juniata County oval three times in 2021 for a combined six nights of racing action. Unique to this season though will be an increased purse for all events highlighted by the Bob Weikert Memorial paying $29,000 to win for the finale and the 54th annual Tuscarora 50 paying a record $54,000 to win. These two races are the highest paying winner's shares on the 2021 All Star schedule at the moment.

 

 Formed in 1970 as the first 'Outlaw' Sprint Car organization of the modern era, the All Stars series has been a staple in the Central Pa. region for decades past. In its current form, the series is owned by motorsports legend Tony Stewart (since 2015) and features some of the best drivers in winged sprint car action that the sport has to offer.

 

 As customary, the series first visit to the speedway will occur Saturday, April 17th, with the sixth annual Keith Kauffman Classic paying $8000 to win for the sprint cars. This is a $2000 increase on last year's race, which was postponed until June as a result of Covid-19. The event honors Kauffman, a 24-time All Star winner and the Port Royal Speedway all-time leading feature winner.

 

 Joining the 410 Sprint Cars on the schedule for the night will be the Limited Late Models racing for a $1500 winner's share.

 

 Dale Blaney picked up the first ever event checkered flag in 2016, followed by three straight victories for local legend Lance Dewease from 2017-2019. Last season Anthony Macri broke Dewease's stranglehold on the event as he scored his first career series victory over a charging Kyle Larson and Danny Dietrich.

 

 A little over a month later, the series will return as the speedway will hold the annual Bob Weikert Memorial. The two-day event will occur May 29-30 and will pay $10,000 to win for the first night, followed by a race-record $29,000 on Saturday. This is an increase of $19,000 from last year's winner's share, with the 29 representing the famed Weikert sprint car's number. Night one will feature the PA Sprint Series 305 Sprint Cars also on the card while the Wingless Super Sportsman will tag along for the night two finale.

 

 The annual red, white and blue event has been held since 2003 and is a Memorial Day weekend staple that honors the legendary car owner, Bob Weikert. Last year's event was moved to mid-July as a result of Covid-19. The event first became a two-day spectacle in 2016 and the coveted 'Steer Head' trophy is one of the most sought-after trophies for drivers. Last year served as a return to the event for the All Stars after most recently sanctioning it in 2015 and the purse increase only guarantees that the race will remain a premier event in the area.

 

 Last year Kyle Larson swept the weekend to earn the overall championship and the trophies. Fred Rahmer (2), Todd Shaffer, Lance Dewease, Greg Hodnett (6), Jeff Shepard, Stevie Smith, Doug Esh, Cody Darrah, Lucas Wolfe (2), Danny Dietrich and Logan Wagner have all earned victories in the event.

 

 Lastly, the crown jewel event of the season, the 54th Annual Tuscarora 50, will once again be All Star sanctioned and will be held Sept 9-11th. This will be the second consecutive season that the event will be three days and is one of the most tradition-laden races in the Keystone state. Thursday night's preliminary will pay $8000 to win, which is a $2000 increase form 2020. The Pa Sprint Series 305 Sprint Cars will also be on the card. Friday night's 'Night Before the 50' will pay $10,000 to win, which is also an $4000 increase from 2020. The Super Late Models will also be on the card. Finally, representing the 54th annual running of the event, the Saturday night finale will pay a whopping $54,000 to the winner, which is a $1000 increase from last year. As customary there will be a non-qualifiers feature that night as well.

 

 Last year Cory Eliason and Lance Dewease (Night Before the 50) scored preliminary victories before Dewease etched his name further in the record books with his seventh career triumph in the event. The win gave Dewease an unprecedented win in the event in four consecutive decades.

 

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

Port Royal Speedway Pays Out More Than 1.5 Million to Drivers During Record 2020 Season, 2021 Opening Day Announcement

By-Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Pa. (Dec. 2, 2020) With less than 30 days remaining in the year, the Juniata County Fair Board and track promotional staff at Port Royal Speedway are working extremely hard behind the scenes in preparation for the 2021 race season.

Before you know it, the sounds of race cars will again take center stage on the weekends in Juniata County and fans will again gather in the grandstands anxiously awaiting the call to 'Light the Fires and Kick the Tires' at the Speed Palace.

The speedway will officially kick off 2021 with a Test & Tune session from 1-4 PM on Saturday, March 6th. All Port Royal Speedway participating divisions are welcome to attend and this will serve as the lead up for the 79th Port Royal Speedway Opening Day the following day on Sunday, March 7th at 2:00 PM.

This will be the third consecutive season that the speedway will attempt a Sunday opener and will feature the 410 Sprint Cars and the Super Late Models in full programs of racing. The sprint cars will compete for a $5000 winners share while the super late models will by vying for $3000.

However, we would be remise if we didn't first take a look back on a 2020 season that was extremely successful and challenging all at the same time.

Facing multiple obstacles as a result of the global pandemic and Covid-19, Port Royal Speedway persevered to hold 28 races in 2020. While short of the originally scheduled 34 nights of racing, this came after a three-month hiatus due to the affects of the virus and includes the addition of several unplanned races to the schedule.

After all was said and done, the Speedway paid out over 1.5 million dollars to race teams across all divisions in total purse and point fund money. This is the most in the history of the speedway.

We'd like to thank all of the great car owners, drivers and sponsors who called Port Royal Speedway home in 2020 and it is because of your continued dedication, efforts and teamwork that we can reach numbers such as this.

The season kicked off on March 8th in front of a record-breaking crowd on hand for the 78th annual Port Royal Speedway opening day. A pair of first time winners visited victory lane that night as All Star Circuit of Champions invader Cory Eliason scored the $5000 Weikert's Livestock 410 Sprint Car victory and Virginia's Trevor Feathers earned the $2500 River Valley Builders Super Late Model triumph.

One week later Lance Dewease added to his historic total by picking up his 113th career Port Royal Speedway victory and Delaware's Scott Lingo capped the night by picking up his first career speedway triumph in super late model action.

This also served as the debut of the newly constructed infield access tunnel and new infield bathrooms/concessions. The offseason project aimed at increasing in handicap accessibility and fairground infrastructure was one of the most highly anticipated projects by fans and was met with high approval.

Covid-19 took center stage the following week and it would be 91 days in total before racing would return to 'The Speed Palace'. With completed pit grandstands and a newly constructed victory lane awaiting a winner, Mike Wagner turned back the clock to score his first 410 sprint car victory at the speedway since 2104 in what the track promotion team deemed 'Opening Day 2.0.' Gregg Satterlee won in super late model competition and Andrew Yoder won in Limited Late Model competition.

Entering the season with only one Port Royal Speedway career victory, Anthony Macri left his mark on the history books beginning the following week. Macri won the next four 410 sprint car events at the speedway and ran his streak to five when he pulled double duty during the Round 6 PA Speedweek event to also capture the URC 360 Sprint Car feature victory. This included picking up the 5th annual Keith Kauffman Classic against the All Star Circuit of Champions worth $6000. In total Macri scored seven total wins in 2020 to include the Labor Day Classic and the 14th annual Living Legends Dream Race worth $10,000.

Sticking to the trend of repeat winners, Satterlee also picked up another super late model victory to go back-to-back. This was part of a career season for Satterlee at the Speed Palace as he won five total features to increase his total from five to 10. He was also the lone local representative on the podium during the Lucas Oil Late Model finale.

With the Kyle Larson show dominating the headlines across the country, Port Royal Speedway was not immune from the California kid's dominance. Larson picked up his first career victory at the speedway during the Greg Hodnett Memorial finale of PA Speedweek worth $10,027 enroot to being crowned as the 2020 PA Speedweek champion.

He followed that up by sweeping the All Star Circuit of Champions Bob Weikert Memorial weekend and he also swept the World of Outlaws Nittany Showdown weekend in October for five total sprint car victories at the Juniata County oval. However, it was behind the wheel of a Late Model that Larson made the biggest splash when he defeated the Lucas Oil Late Model Series in only his second career start in a late model to win the Rumble by the River finale worth $15,000.

Tim Mcreadie won the opener for the series at the speedway, with rain cancelling the second of night of racing. The event was the largest paying late model race in the history of the speedway.

Brent Marks scored two 410 sprint car victories in 2020 to include the Curt Hershey tribute race and the 166th annual Juniata County Fair opener, while Jeff Halligan entered the record books with his first career win at the speedway in mid-July. Other winners in 410 Sprint Car competition was Blaine Heimbach and Logan Wagner, who also claimed the track championship for the third consecutive season.

The crown jewel of the season was the three-day Tuscarora 50. Cory Eliason and Lance Dewease (Night Before the 50) picked up preliminary victories and Dewease captured the $53,000 finale for a record seventh time. The win gave him wins in the event in an unrivaled four-consecutive decades.

In super late model competition, Mason Zeigler scored the win during the 16th annual Butch Renninger Memorial worth $5333 for his third career triumph at the speedway. Rick Eckert and Jeff Rine also scored wins for the year, but it was Andy Haus coming out on top as track champion in a battle that came down to the final night over Dylan Yoder and Colton Flinner.

Garrett Bard picked up on his winning ways from 2019 to score five victories in Penns Valley Meat Market PASS/IMCA 305 Sprint Series competition. He closed the season out by getting the win in the 9th annual Keystone RaceSaver Challenge. Other winners in the series were Nick Sweigart (2) and Derek Hauck.

Andrew Yoder picked up his second consecutive Selinsgrove Ford Limited Late Model championship on the strength of four series victories in 2020. The series raced 8 times in 2020 with Dillan Stake, Jared Fulkroad, Todd Snook and Marvin Winter also scoring wins.

Other winners at the track included Alex Bright in USAC East Coast 360 Sprint Car competition, Billy Brian Jr and Joey Biasi in wingless super sportsman competition and Travis Brown and Eric Boozel in the 4-cylinders.

In a late addition to the schedule due to Covid-19 restrictions in New York, the Speedway hosted the richest 2020 event for the Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series for three nights of racing as part of the first annual Speed Showcase 200. Matt Sheppard picked up the win during the night one preliminary, while Danny Bouc, Mike Gular, Billy Pauch Jr., Eric Rudulph and Max McLaughlin scored qualifier wins on night two. Mat Williamsom shocked everybody by scoring the night three finale win worth a whopping $53,000!

In closing we want to thank all of the fans for their continued dedication during a season that was challenging, ever-changing and sometimes frustrating. We know without you that we can't be successful and we are anxiously looking forward to building on last year's triumph to be even better.

Please stay tuned to our website and various social media outlets for updates regarding to the speedway and schedule! We'll see you all in 2021!

Garrett Bard Closes out Big Season With 9th Annual Keystone RaceSaver Challenge Victory and PA Sprint Series Championship

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Pa. (Oct. 24, 2020) Garrett Bard locked up the 2020 Penns Valley Meat Market PA Sprint Series 305 Sprint Car championships Saturday night after picking up the win in the 9th Annual Keystone RaceSaver Challenge at Port Royal Speedway,

The win was Bard's fifth of the 2020 race season at the Juniata County oval and came during the premier event for the affordable, recreational series.

"When we put this car together our goal was just to make the race as I was focused on winning the title here," said Bard, who crashed a car two weeks ago at Port Royal Speedway. "When I went into that first turn during group hot laps the car didn't turn at all and the set up was just way off to what I'm used to. To be standing here tonight is pretty special knowing all we went through to be here."

After a red flag halted the initial start, Bard used the outside line to pass pole sitter Robbie Batchy at the drop of the green flag and he immediately set sail on the field. Fourth starter Christian Rumsey settled into second, while fifth starter Justin Clark moved into fourth.

With Bard setting a torrid pace, Clark was on the move. On lap six he used the bottom of the speedway in turn's one and two to take the runner up position and he set his sights on Bard.

Bard entered lap traffic on lap seven and he was struggling to dispatch the slower cars initially, which allowed Clark to cut the distance in half by lap 10. Two laps later Clark was within two car-lengths of the leader and with 11 to go Clark was right on the tail tank of the leader heading to the start/finish line.

However, any chance at making a pass was halted when Jason Roush got turned around directly in front of the leaders in turn two to bring out the caution.

"When I got to traffic I was having all sorts of trouble with the car and I was having trouble getting on the brakes," said Bard. "We had that caution and I knew Justin was right there. I knew though with only 11 to go I likely wasn't going to get back into traffic and I was great in clean air."

Another caution halted racing action two laps later, but Bard was not to be denied as he again jumped out to a lengthy lead during a return to green. With four laps to go, Clark was chipping away at the leader and with two laps remaining Bard was closing on lap cars.

Clark made a last lap effort to go to the bottom in turn's three and four, but it wasn't enough to pass Bard, who took the checkered flag by a margin of .882 seconds over Clark, Rumsey, Jared Zionkowski and Ken Duke Jr.

Devin Adams finished sixth and was the night's hard charger by gaining 10 positions. Barthcy, Doug Dodson, Greg Dabrosky and Nick Sweigart rounded out the top-ten.

"I know starting second made things easier, but it was by no means an easy night," said Bard. "I have to thank my dad for busting his butt to get this car together and my whole team for getting us this far. This has been a special season and I'm thankful to be in victory lane."

For Clark, he thought he needed more laps and was surprised to be as close as he was at the finish.

"I knew that starting position was going to be prime to win this race, but maybe with two more laps we'd have had something for him," said Clark. "It's never easy coming up one spot short, but this is a good way to end the season and we'll try again next year."

Following the feature, there was the annual Founder's Cup for all non-qualifier drivers and Will Brunson picked up the win over Jeff Geiges, Mike Alleman, Colton Hoover and Dustin Young.

Branston Shue started on the pole for the event and looked to be in control for the first two laps when the caution flew for an two-car incident in turn two. Shue was forced to the pit area under caution though after a right-rear tire went flat from contact made with the outside guardrail.

Brunson inherited the lead and held on to lead the final 13 laps to pick up the victory by 2.089 seconds.

Tyler Cochran, Erin Statler, Kristina Pratt, Jimmy White and Reed Thompson rounded out the top ten.

"It's not real easy to get here in victory lane, even if it is a non qualifier race," said Brunson, who earned a guaranteed starting spot in next year's event as a result of winning. "This is crazy and I can't thank everyone enough for getting me to this point."

DIETRICH & FINDLEY CLOSE OUT 2020 SEASON WITH WINS; Freddie Rahmer & Cody Fletcher Crowned Track Champions

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Saturday, February 27, 2021 (2:00PM) Ice Breaker 30

Abbottstown, PA (October 17, 2020) – The 2020 season came to a close at Lincoln Speedway with the Night of Champions presented by Turner Automotive on Saturday night. Two first time track champions were crowned, and the night was filled with exciting action on the track.

Freddie Rahmer went into the night 180 points ahead of Danny Dietrich in the standings for the track championship. Rahmer was chasing his first championship at the track with Dietrich eyeing his second.

Bradley Howard and Jordan Givler shared the front row of the 30-lap feature with Dietrich lined up twelfth and Rahmer starting sixteenth.

Howard led the field into turn 1 with Adam Wilt threading the needle to get to second. Tyler Ross was working on Givler for third took the spot on lap 4.

Danny was working his way to the front of the field and was running in the top 10 when the yellow flag came out on lap 6 when Jim Siegel came to a stop on the front stretch.

Wilt headed to the pits with front wing damage. Wilt rejoined the field but had to give up his second place spot. Siegel also rejoined.

Howard led Ross, Givler, Chase Dietz and Tim Wagaman to the cone for the single file restart.

Howard paced the field slowly into turn 4 and launched to the lead at the cone. Ross hung with Howard on the restart with Dietz getting by Givler for third. Wagaman followed taking fourth.

Dietrich continued his charge to the front challenging Givler for fifth and taking the spot on lap 13.

Howard entered lapped traffic on lap 14 allowing the rest of the field to reel him in.

On lap 17 Dietrich had moved into third went to work on Ross for second. Dietrich made the pass for second on lap 19 coming out of turn 4. The pass for the lead came on the back stretch on the next lap.

With Dietrich in the lead Rahmer needed to finish seventeenth or better to claim the track championship. On lap 20 Rahmer was running eighth but he was not going to settle for a top 10. Freddie continued his charge to the front from his sixteenth starting spot and was in the top five with four laps to go.

Dietz was battling Ross, who was in the #75 car that Dietz had run most of the year, for third late in the race.

Dietrich got to the checkered flag to claim his eighth win of the year at Lincoln. Behind Dietrich the last lap was filled with excitement as Dietz beat Howard to the line by .003 seconds in a photo finish for second. Rahmer made a last lap pass on Ross to take fourth.

The 410 sprint heats were won by Bradley Howard, Troy Wagaman Jr., Jordan Givler and Tyler Ross.

Matt Findley Wins and Cody Fletcher Claims Title

Going into the final race of the season, four drivers were mathematically eligible to claim the track championship. Todd Rittenhouse Jr. had a 75 point lead over Cody Fletcher. Brett Wanner and Steve Owings were also in the running.

Matt Findley and CJ Tracy made up the front row for the 20-lap feature with Rittenhouse and Fletcher lined up side-by-side in row three.

Findley led the field into turn 1 but the red flag waved before a lap was completed. Zachary Cool got upside down in turn 4. Zachary Allman, Mark VanVorst, and Jeff Paulson were also collected. Allman and VanVorst rejoined the field for a complete restart.

Once again Findley led the field into turn 1. Another red flag came on lap 1 when Chris Arnold got upside down in turn 2. Travis Scott and Alyson Dietz were also involved but both were able to rejoin.

Findley led Tracy, Fletcher, Chris Frank, and Zane Rudisill to the cone, but the yellow flag waved on the restart when Kyle Rohrbaugh hit the wall in turn.

Paulson rejoined the field under caution and restarted a lap down.

The field continued to struggle in getting laps completed as another caution came on lap 2. This time it was for Jacob Balliett who got spun around in turn 4. Balliett rejoined the field.

Red flag conditions on the track came again on the restart when Travis Scott landed on his side coming out of turn 2.

Officials opened the red for fuel.

Once the field was underway Findley pulled away. Rudisill was challenging Frank for fourth and took the spot on lap 6.

The yellow came out on lap 8 when Justin Foster fell off the pace on the back stretch.

Findley led Tracy, Fletcher, Rudisill and Frank to the cone for the restart.

The final caution of the night came on lap 10 when Jordan Strickler and Todd Rittenhouse Jr. got together going into turn 1. Jacob Balliett was also collected. Rittenhouse had extensive damage to the front of the car and was not able to rejoin the field ending his hopes at the championship.

Fletcher looked to the inside of Tracy for second but could not make the pass on the restart.

Findley beat Tracy to the checkers by 1.001 seconds for the win. Fletcher finished third, solidifying his first track championship. Rudisill crossed the line fourth and in his Lincoln Speedway debut, Cody Phillips finished fifth.

Heat winners for the 358 sprints were Chris Frank, Jordan Strickler, Brett Wanner and Zane Rudisill.

Larson Makes It a Clean Sweep During Port Royal Speedway Nittany Showdown

Port Royal Speedway

- PORT ROYAL, Pa. (10/10/20) The ink hadn’t even dried on the page before Kyle Larson had another accomplishment to be written in his 2020 book of dirt racing records.

Less than 24 hours after winning the opening night of the Nittany Showdown at Port Royal Speedway on Friday, Larson, of Elk Grove, CA, swept the weekend by winning Saturday night’s $15,000-to-win finale, earning his 20th career World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series victory – tying him with Greg Hodnett for 27th on the Series all-time wins list. It was also the third time he’s swept a doubleheader weekend with the Series in 2020.

“Another awesome race car,” Larson said. “Can’t thank everybody enough. There’s a lot of people that help (owner and crew chief) Paul’s (Silva) team do what we do, and we can’t do it without them.”

His victory didn’t come without a pinch of luck, though. While Larson had the dominate car Friday night, Brent Marks, of Myerstown, PA, did what few have been able to do all year during Saturday night’s race; he passed Larson for the lead.

It first took 27 laps of eye widening racing to get to the point.

PA Posse members Lance Dewease, of Fayetteville, PA, and Anthony Macri, of Dillsburg, PA, lined up on the front row, poised to end the Posse’s losing streak against the Outlaws this year and not be shutout of a win for the first time since 2008.

When the 30-lap Feature commenced, Dewease pulled ahead with the lead and Larson wasted little time to catapult himself from fourth to second on the opening lap. Dewease used the clean air to his advantage and gapped Larson by about a second in the opening laps. However, he almost lost everything when he hit the wall in Turn 2.

Keeping his throttle control and steering in line, Dewease was able to recover from his mistake and continue with no issues. The only problem it presented for him was it allowed Larson to close in. And once Larson had Dewease within reach, his charge was imminent.

Larson and Dewease waged a two-lap war for the lead on Laps 9 and 10 before the Finley Farms #57 prevailed as the victor. The race was now Larson’s to lose.

On a restart with 14 laps to go, Marks was poised to be the one to make Larson lose it. He powered around the outside of Sheldon Haudenschild to take third and then made quick work of Dewease to steal second. Larson pulled away to about a second lead, but Marks had the high side mastered and cut a tenth of a second off Larson’s lead each lap. And once lap traffic came into play, Larson’s reign at the front started crumpling.

Marks, a Posse member that used to be a full-time Outlaw, was on the hunt for his first Series win in 2020 and to end that Posse losing streak. With three laps to go, he held the key to accomplish both feats. But before he could get a grip on it, a caution took it away.

Larson got held up by the lap car of Spencer Bayston while trying to pass him around the bottom, giving Marks a surprising run around the top to power around Larson for the lead down the backstretch. Seconds later, yellow lights flashed around the track for Kerry Madsen, who stopped on the track with a right front issue. With the lap no completed, Larson was able to keep the lead for the restart.

“I’m a little disappointed but it’s hard to be disappointed with second with the World of Outlaws, especially against Kyle,” Marks said. “For once we had a better car than he did. It just didn’t work out. It’s all good. I’m really proud of our team.”

When the green flag waved for the final time Saturday night, Larson launched ahead of Marks on the start and pulled away to his 12th Series victory of the season in 24 starts and 41st dirt racing victory in 81 starts this year.

“I definitely got really lucky there,” Larson said. “Marks surprised me when he ripped around me. Honestly, I thought Lance (Dewease) would be the guy coming. I peeked back and I could see someone was running the middle and I thought it was Lance. I should’ve peeked at the board I guess and seen the 5 (car of Marks) was coming and I would’ve known where he was running. I would’ve been more aggressive when I got to traffic. I got lucky and I’ll take it.”

Dewease rounded out the podium and championship contender Logan Schuchart finished fourth – earning the KSE Racing Hard Charger Award with his run from 12th to fourth. Schuchart’s finish also helped him chip away at reigning champion Brad Sweet’s points lead. He’s now 32 points behind Sweet – who finished eighth.

“It’s nice just to go forward,” said Schuchart, of Hanover, PA. “We’ve been so consistent for so long. And to be at the front of the points, you have to be consistent to be up there. Just says how are team is running. For the last few weeks, for whatever reason, we’ve been struggling a little bit. But these Drydene guys they keep working hard and we just keeping working at it. You’re going to have good nights and bad nights. Hopefully more good than bad.”

Sweet’s eighth-place finish was good enough to help his Kasey Kahne Racing team reclaim the points lead for the team championship from Jason Johnson Racing. David Gravel, driving the JJR #41, finished 21st, allowing KKR to move to a 12-point lead ahead of JJR.

With five races remaining this season, there’s five more chances for Larson to add a new World of Outlaws record to his book and five more important events to determine the 2020 champion.

Kyle Larson Claims Night One of the Nittany Showdown with World of Outlaws at Port Royal Speedway

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Pa. (Oct. 9, 2020)- Kyle Larson has made Port Royal Speedway his personal playground in 2020. He's beat the PA Posse during Pennsylvania Speedway at the track. He's beaten the Ollie's Bargain Outlets All Star Circuit of Champions as well. Heck, he even beat the Lucas Oil Dirt Late Model Series at the Juniata County oval.

Well, Larson checked another series off the Port Royal bucket list as he went wire-to-wire to defeat the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Cars during night one of the Nittany Showdown Friday night.

The win was worth $8000 and put Larson at 40 wins on the season. More remarkable is the fact that he's done so in only 80 starts for an incredible %50 win-rate for the season.

"I've gotten to 30 wins before, but 40 seems a little unrealistic when you really think about it," said Larson. "In the past we have only raced maybe 20 or 30 races on dirt and this year we've gotten to do it a lot more and this just shows how good we can be when we get out more. I don’t know that I could've ever dreamed up this year if I tried."

Larson earned the pole position courtesy of winning the dash and got the early jump on outside front row starter, Danny Dietrich, at the drop of the green flag. Dietrich tried to slide under Larson as the two entered turn one, but it would be as close as the Gettysburg, Pa. native would get.

Fourth starting Brock Zearfoss moved into the third spot on the opening lap while Sheldon Haudenschild and Gio Scelzi made up the top-five.

Larson was setting a blistering pace as he cruised around the top of the Juniata County oval and he entered lap traffic with a nearly 2.0 second advantage on lap six. If Dietrich was hoping the lap cars would slow the California native down, he was mistaken as Larson stretched his lead to nearly 2.6 seconds by lap 10.

Knifing in and out of the lap cars with ease, Larson stretched his lead to nearly 3.7 seconds by lap 15. The caution would fly one lap later when Brent Marks got into the turn four guardrail and collected James McFadden, Outlaw points leader Brad Sweet, Carson Macedo and Lance Dewease.

Sweet would tag the rear of the field and salvage what could've been a big hit in the points battle. McFadden and Marks was able to return as well.

Dietrich once again tried a slider attempt on the restart, but it was all Larson again as he rocketed off the top of the cushion to lead. Haudenschild moved into the third position on lap 20, while Scelzi moved to fourth on lap 23.

Meanwhile Larson was back in lap traffic and was continuing his domination of the event. Dietrich was able to close slightly over the final three circuits but when the checkered flag flew, it was Larson by an advantage of 1.606 second.

Dietrich, Haudenschild, Scelzi and Zearfoss made up the top-five while Anthony Macri, Donny Schatz, David Gravel, Freddie Rahmer and Kerry Madsen completed the top five. Rahmer was the night's hard charger by gaining 11 positions form the 20 starting spot.

Sweet was able to salvage and 11th place finish, which was one better then second in points Logan Schuchart and allowed him to further stretch his points lead to 40 points. Schatz, who's third in series standings, was able to close to within 62-points as the season winds down.

However, the night belonged to Larson and his team.

"I felt really good in the Dash and I fellt like the car was maybe a little different in the feature," said Larson. "I could slide lappers and not really lose momentum and I knew that be important with Danny behind us. The car was just so good and I can’t thank these guys working on it enough ads they are the ones making this all happen."

For Dietrich, he knew the restarts were pivotal for him to pass Larson but felt his car wasn't good enough on the bottom to really catch him.

"Kyle is really good on restarts and going to the bottom wasn't ideal or the place to be," said Dietrich. "It was really the only option though to pass him, but overall I'm really happy with the car and this is a huge improvement on the last few weeks."

Port Royal Speedway Set for Annual Nittany Showdown Featuring the World of Outlaw Sprint Cars

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Pa- (Oct. 5, 2020) After a month-long break, Port Royal Speedway will continue with their 2020 racing season with a two-day visit by the NOS Energy Drink World of Outlaws Sprint Cars Series Friday and Saturday October 9-10 for the Nittany Showdown.

This will be the third consecutive season where the Outlaws will attempt to visit for a two-day event and it’s expected that a large field of cars will trek to Juniata County for a chance to take home the victory and the bragging rights against the best the sport has to offer.

Last year’s event saw Outlaw mainstay Donny Schatz pick up the win on Friday night, while Saturday night’s racing activities were cancelled due to rain. For Schatz, the win was his third consecutive feature victory at ‘The Speed Palace’ and he will be looking to make it four in a row in 2020.

Past winners in Outlaw competition along with Schatz (4) are Logan Shuchart, Brad Sweet, Ryan Smith, Jason Meyers, Brad Furr, Danny Wood, Doug Wolfgang, Don Kreitz Jr. and Lynn Paxton won the very first visit in July of 1979.

Logan Wagner already locked up the Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Car track championship at the speedway and he will be looking for his first career Outlaw triumph. Anthony Macri currently leads the division in wins at the Speedway in 2020 with six wins to his credit. He will be looking to defend the local turf along with Lance Dewease (115 career speedway victories), Danny Dietrich, Lucas Wolfe, Brent Marks, Dylan Cisney and many more.

It is also expected that several other outsiders will make the trek to the Juniata County oval such as Brian Brown (Knoxville Track Champion), Gio Scelzi and many others as well. Kyle Larson has picked up three victories at the Speedway this season and may also attend.

To go along with the PA Posse vs the Outlaws rivalry, the Outlaws points battle is also up for grabs entering the weekend. Currently Brad Sweet holds a 38-point advantage in the standings over Schuchart and a -70 advantage over Schatz. Sheldon Haudenschild (-150) and Carson Macedo (-188) make up the top five.

David Gravel, Daryn Pittman, Jacob Allen, Parker Price-Miller and Kraig Kinser complete the top ten. Pittman recently hooked back up with local car owner Mike Heffner to finish off the 2020 campaign together. Pittman has two career victories at the speedway.

This would be the second career championship for Sweet if he is to hold on. A strong run in Central Pa. would do wonders in his quest as the field will be as tough as anywhere and points are crucial.

Friday’s Preliminary event will pay $8000 to win and Saturday’s finale will pay $15,000 to win. Both races are 30 laps in distance.

Saturday’s finale will also feature the PASS/IMCA PA Sprint Series 305 Sprint Cars competing in a 24-car invitational (Top 24 in points) feature event.

Schatz Holds Off Larson, Wins Williams Grove 75K National Open

Freddie Rahmer Is 2020 Track Champion

10/3/20

Mechanicsburg – Donny Schatz won the biggest sprint car race in the nation on Saturday night, taking the 58th annual, $75,000 to win World of Outlaws Champion Racing Oil National Open at Williams Grove Speedway.

It was the North Dakota driver’s unrivaled sixth career win in the oval’s marquee event.

Schatz was the third and final leader in the hotly contested 40-lap event with Pennsylvania’s own Logan Schuchart leading at the start with Friday night winner and Saturday polesitter David Gravel falling into second.

Schuchart was lightning fast at the start of the race, bolting out to a two-turn lead in the early going before a caution flag for a stopped Brock Zearfoss slowed the pace on the fourth lap.

Gravel kept Schuchart a bit closer on the restart, not letting him get quite as far away.

Then with nine laps down another caution flag bunched the field with Gravel and Schatz restarting second and third.

However the ensuing restart turned yellow again for a blown tire on Danny Dietrich’s racer.

Dietrich was up to eighth in the field when the tire let go after starting 14th.

Only another three laps were completed before another caution flag unfurled, this time for a slowing Aaron Reutzel.

And on each of the prior double file restarts, Gravel was able to successfully jump in line directly behind Schuchart with Schatz following suit.

But on this restart, Gravel pulled the trigger for control as he raced off of the second turn cushion by ducking to the inside lane on the backstretch to blast under the leader in turn three and take over as the pacesetter.

And again, Schatz followed suit.

As it would turn out that Schatz was the man to beat as he began locking down to the low side in the third and fourth turns to reel in Gravel by lap 18.

The pair raced by the flag stand with Schatz nipping at Gravel’s heals on laps 18 and 19 and all the while the duo was closing in on the rear of the field.

And that’s when Schatz made his winning move, just as Gravel entered traffic on lap 21.

As two-time National Open champion Gravel entered the first turn with a bit of room to spare on the bottom side, Schatz motored by using that spare room to net the lead.

Schatz had a 1.171 second lead over Gravel when the race was halted for a scheduled fuel stop on lap 25.

The restart saw fifth starter Kyle Larson come to life as the final 15 laps would go non-stop.

Larson disposed of third running Schuchart when action restarted and he then drove past Gravel with 13 laps to go.

Schatz then entered lapped traffic with seven laps remaining, allowing Larson to close in for the win.

It took until the final lap for Larson to pull up on leader Schatz before going for a banzai run through the third and fourth corners as the pair raced to the checkers.

Larson blasted the outside line as he entered turn three and pulled to Schatz’s outside but just as it appeared that he might edge in front to take the 75K, his mount jumped the cushion in turn four, allowing the victory and Schatz to slip away.

“Before that race I was the only five-time National Open winner, now I’m a six-time National Open winner,” Schatz said.

“We just kept our speed up and kept rollin’. It feels great, it’s been a trying year,” the winner stated.

The victory was just the fifth of the season for the ten-time World of Outlaws champion on the 2020 series tour.

“The restarts early weren’t really working in our favor,” Kyle Larson commented after finishing second.

“We made the car better under the red and gave it all we had. I feel like we had a good car, definitely a car capable to win but just came up short,” Larson said.

Larson finished just .579 seconds behind Schatz at the finish line.

Schuchart was third followed by Gravel and Sheldon Haudenschild.

Sixth through 10th went to Daryn Pittman, Jacob Allen, Anthony Macri, defending National Open winner Brent Marks and Brad Sweet.

Heats went to Larson, Allen, Schatz and Gravel with Shane Stewart taking the B Main.

Spencer Bayston won the C Main and Chad Trout won the non-qualifiers race.

Troy Wagaman won the D Main.

Gravel earned the pole for the main event by winning the dash.

Sheldon Haudenschild set fast time over the field of 54 cars with a lap of 16.685 seconds.

Lance Dewease was the hard charger in the feature event.

Freddie Rahmer finished 12 in the feature and officially became the 2020 Williams Grove Speedway track champion.

The title is the second of the young Rahmer’s career.

David Gravel Scores Night One Of Williams Grove National Open,

Shane Stewart Busts 18-Year Old One-Lap Track Record With 16.111 Lap

9/25/20

Mechanicsburg – David Gravel won opening night of the Champion Racing Oil National Open for World of Outlaws Sprint Cars at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, taking $10,000 for his second oval win of the season with the circuit.

The track returns to action Saturday night with the 58th annual Champion Racing Oil National Open paying $75,000 to win as the biggest sprint car race in the nation unfolds beginning at 7:30 pm.

Freddie Rahmer and Gravel shared the front row for the start of Friday night’s 25-lap main event and Gravel took the lead over Rahmer at the start, chased by Shane Stewart and Kyle Larson.

By lap five Gravel had a half straightaway lead over the field with Larson now up to third.

A fleet-running Gravel entered the backmarkers already on lap seven as the cars of Rahmer, Larson and Stewart all raced together for second.

Stewart took a stab at Larson to reclaim third on lap 11 but by that time Larson was honing in on Rahmer for what would be repeated passes for the spot only to see Rahmer blister back into the position.

With leader Gravel now a straightaway ahead, Larson took his first shot at second on lap 18 by laying a slider on Rahmer in the first turn only to see Rahmer drop underneath and reclaim the spot in turn two.

Two laps later, Larson repeated the feat in the first turn and again Rahmer dropped below in the middle of the corner and rallied back to second.

However by that time Larson’s machine was really coming on and he shot low into the third turn for the runner-up spot with four laps to go and secured second.

But then a lap and a half later an uncharacteristic flub on the turn two cushion saw him nearly loop the car with Rahmer hot on his heels.

Rahmer went hard on the binders to narrowly avoid broad siding Larson as Larson also straightened the car to get out of the corner still running second.

And by that time the race was all but over as Gravel sped to the victory by 2.505 seconds.

“I got clear of Freddie but then overdrove one and two, high centered on the cushion, and it turned me sideways,” Larson said of his miscue with two laps to go.

Gravel commented on his strategy in the event.

“I knew I just had to attack, attack, attack,” the Connecticut pilot said.

Rahmer followed Larson in third followed by Aaron Reutzel and Anthony Macri.

Sixth through 10th went to Shane Stewart, Donny Schatz, Lance Dewease, James McFadden and Kerry Madsen.

Shane Stewart busted the 18-year old one lap track record in qualifying by turning a lap of 16.111 seconds over the field of 57 cars.

Heats went to Stewart, Reutzel, Gravel and Larson with Rahmer claiming the dash.

Brent Shearer won the non-qualifiers race with Wayne Johnson taking the D Main.

Kyle Moody won the C Main and Parker Price-Miller took the B Main.

Brad Sweet was the RV Four Wheel Drive and Performance Automotive Hard Charger.

Feature Finish, 10/2/20:

410 sprints, 25 laps: 1. David Gravel, 2. Kyle Larson, 3. Freddie Rahmer, 4. Aaron Reutzel, 5. Anthony Macri, 6. Shane Stewart, 7. Donny Schatz, 8. Lance Dewease, 9. James McFadden, 10. Kerry Madsen, 11. Brad Sweet, 12. Brent Marks, 13. Sheldon Haudenschild, 14. Gio Scelzi, 15. Brian Montieth, 16. Carson Macedo, 17. Logan Schuchart, 18. Danny Dietrich, 19. Cory Eliason, 20.

58th Annual Williams Grove Champion Racing Oil National Open Is This Week

Outlaws vs Posse $75,000 Match-Up Puts Focus Of Sprint Car World On Williams Grove October 2 & 3 As Contenders Gear Up Anticipated Contest!

9/27/20

Mechanicsburg – The biggest and richest sprint car race in the East and in the history of Williams Grove Speedway is at hand as the 58th annual Champion Racing Oil National Open looms this weekend at the Cumberland County oval.

Sanctioned by the World of Outalws Sprint Cars Series, the two-day affair on October 2 and 3 will put the eyes of the sprint car world on Williams Grove Speedway.

Slated for October 2, the National Open Preliminary will feature a 25-lap main paying $10,000 to the winner on Friday night.

Then on Saturday, October 3, the 2020 Champion Racing Oil National Open will again offer the biggest winner’s share ever in the history of the oval and in the East, at $75,000 for 40-laps of work.

Besting all other sprint car events this year, the widely acclaimed race will go down in history as the richest one-day event and biggest payday in sprint car racing across the nation, with Saturday’s A-Main total purse alone eclipsing $130,000!

The World of Outlaws drivers will enter the meet with Californian Brad Sweet atop the series point standings to go along with eight wins on the season.

But just 40 points back of Sweet is home state native Logan Schuchart of Hanover aboard his grandfather Bobby Allen’s No. 1S.

Schuchart has six wins this season and may be primed for his first ever Williams Grove Open win.

However lurking just behind Schuchart, third in series points although perhaps a bit off of his feed this year, is the winningest driver in National Open history, perennial WoO champion Donny Schatz who has taken the prestigious affair an unprecedented five times. .

A two-time Open winner, David Gravel has been strong this season on the outlaws tour and could also be a contender along with Oklahoma’s Daryn Pittman who has finished second on five occasions in the National Open.

Pittman is due for a win in the race and this year could do the trick now that he has reunited with former local car owner Mike Heffner who likewise is overdue for a victory in the historic spectacle.

Freddie Rahmer enters the final two races of the year in the Open as the Williams Grove point leader by 145 points over defending National Open winner Brent Marks.

Rahmer has never won the Open although his father Fred does own one win and could certainly guide his son to his first triumph.

One-time Open champion Danny Dietrich is currently third in points.

Local Lance Dewease, a four-time Open winner himself, could also be considered a favorite by the PA Posse faithful as he looks for his 100th career Williams Grove Speedway victory with the talents of former driver/car owner Don Kreitz Jr. and mechanic Davey Brown Sr. turning the wrenches.

The National Open will see the 2020 Williams Grove Speedway Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint car series champion crowned at the conclusion of Saturday’s Open.

Adult general admission for October 2 is set at $30 with youth ages 13 – 20 priced at $15. Adult admission for October 3 is $35 with youth priced at $20.

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

Both nights of action are slated to get underway at 7:30 pm.

58th Champion Racing Oil Williams Grove National Open Adds To History This Week With Record Breaking $75,000 Top Prize, Oct. 3 Winner’s Share Largest Sprint Car Payout In State, East And Nation In 2020

Another Chapter In Tremendous History Of Event To Be Written Saturday

9/27/20

Mechanicsburg – Sprint car fans in the East will assemble Saturday night to see the 58th running of the Williams Grove Speedway Champion Racing Oil National Open for sprint cars sanctioned by the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Cars Series, going 40-laps in distance and paying a gigantic $75,000 to the winner.

This year’s event will again be momentous, as the champion will pocket the biggest cash payday ever in the history of the oval and in the East, at $75,000.

And this season, the widely acclaimed event will go down in history as the richest one-day event and biggest payday in sprint car racing across the nation, with Saturday’s A-Main total purse alone eclipsing $130,000!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Schatz was again the winner in 2007.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

~ Selinsgrove Speedway ~ A New Identity In Twenty-Twenty

Anthony Macri Wins $20,000 In 38th Running Of Selinsgrove Nace National Open

Garrett Bard gets 305 sprints to close season

9/26/20

Selinsgrove, Pa. – Anthony Macri of Dillsburg romped to the biggest win of his sprint car career on Saturday night at Selinsgrove Speedway, scoring $20,000 in the prestigious 38th annual Jim Nace Memorial National Open for 410 sprint cars.

The win was the second of the year for Macri at Selinsgrove Speedway aboard his No. 39 and his 10th overall of the season.

Macri started out the night by setting a new track record in qualifications, turning a lap of 15.544 seconds around the big half-mile, breaking the one-year old record of 15.694 set at last years event by Kerry Madsen.

In total, nine different drivers timed in under the old track record.

Macri then drew the pole for the 40-lap Nace National Open with Missouri’s Brian Brown lining up second.

When action began Brown beat Macri into the first turn but Macri swept around the outside to take control onto the backchute.

A blistering pace found the leader entering the backmarkers on just the fifth tour with Brown in tow and as he negotiated traffic, Brown was able to close a bit the leader’s advantage.

The first caution flag of the race appeared on lap 10 for a stopped Trenton Sheaffer, wiping out a 2.163 second lead built up by Macri.

Brown dove under Macri on the restart only to see Macri sweep around the top and again net control.

Macri again entered the rear of the field on lap 16 before the race was halted for a scheduled fuel stop at the halfway point, with Macri again ahead by 2.058 seconds before the stoppage.

Unfortunately, a rules infraction by Brown’s team under the scheduled stoppage would cost him the runner-up spot for the restart.

Brown was placed to the rear of the field for the return to action but instead he withdrew from the event.

This placed Freddie Rahmer on Macri’s tail for the restart but Macri got away when green replaced the yellow before again entering the rear of the field with 12 laps to go.

Rahmer tried to keep Macri close as they raced through traffic but to no avail and by the time a final caution flag appeared with just four laps to go, the leader had amassed a 3.994 second lead.

The yellow flag appeared for a stopped Brent Marks who was running fourth before blowing a tire.

Rahmer tried a low move into the first corner when action returned but Macri again got away, this time to take the win by 3.031 seconds during the final two miles.

Rahmer finished second in the race for the third year in a row aboard his father’s No. 51.

Sixth starter Dylan Cisney rode home a stout third followed by Lance Dewease and Brock Zearfoss.

Sixth through 10th went to Danny Dietrich, Brian Montieth, a rebounding Marks, Blane Heimbach and defending event champion Logan Wagner.

Montieth scored the Hard Charger award worth $400 after starting 13th in the field.

Heats went to Brown, TJ Stutts and Zearfoss with Steve Buckwalter scoring the last chance race.

Macri became the 20th different winner of the Selinsgrove Open in 38 years.

Garrett Bard would lead all 20 laps of the 305 sprint main to close out the night and the season at the track.

Bard blasted to the win from the pole although 10th starter Derek Hauck came to the front to challenge.

Hauck blasted across the bottom lane in the third and fourth turns as the pair headed to the checkers but instead he came up just shy by .312 seconds.

Ken Duke Jr. finished third in the race followed by Doug Dodson and Jaremi Hanson.

Sixth through 10th went to Dominic Melair, Mikell McGhee, Austin Grabey, Kassidy Kreitz and Cruz Kepner.

Austin Grabey was awarded Hard Charger laurels after advancing 16 spots in the field.

Heats went to Jared Zionkowski, Devin Adams, Dodson and Duke with the consolation going to McGhee.

The win was the third of the year by Bard at the Snyder County oval.

Saturday, October 24 Monster Trucks promoted by Renegade Monster Truck Tour

Abbottstown, PA (September 26, 2020) – The final night of the 2020 Dirt Nationals featured the “Crowning of Champions” in each division. The Young Lions, Semi-Pro, Masters and Pro divisions all competed in 30-lap feature events to crown a champion.

First up was the Young Lions division which consists of drivers between the ages of 12-15 and is considered the most novice Legend Car division.

Daniel Adam, from North Carolina, and Florida-driver, Nikita Johnson made up the front row of the Young Lions feature event.

Adam and Johnson raced side by side into turn 1 with Johnson coming out of turn 2 with the lead. Tommie Quenzer, the national point leader in the division, settled into third as Adam stayed with Johnson to battle for the lead.

Johnson, Adam and Quenzer were pulling away from the rest of the field as Taylor

Adam was searching for a way around Johnson for the lead and got his nose under Johnson in turn 4 on lap 3 but couldn’t make the pass. The following lap he looked to the outside, again to no avail.

Johnson and Adam raced door to door down the back stretch on lap 5 with Johnson once again holding onto the lead.

Johnson’s teammate, Jaiden Reyna who had fallen back to seventh after starting fourth, made his way back to fourth on lap 8.

As Johnson and Adam pulled away from third place Quenzer, the battle for the lead didn’t cool down. Adam was still searching the track for a way around Johnson for the top spot.

The two leaders raced side by side down the front stretch on lap 11 with Adam finally making the pass for the lead coming out of turn 2.

Reyna was working on Quenzer for third at the halfway point of the race and made the pass coming out of turn 4.

Adam made contact with the wall on the backstretch on lap 15 allowing Johnson to take the lead back.

Reyna was reeling in Adam and Johnson and made it a three-car battle for the lead on lap 17. Adam and Reyna both got by Johnson in turn 4 on lap 18. Reyna took the lead at the line on lap 20. Adam continued to battle for the lead with Adam taking back the top spot on the following lap.

The first caution and only caution of the race came on lap 22 for Jonathan Robinson whose car was on fire.

Adam led Reyna, Johnson, Quenzer and Payton Jones to the cone for the single-file restart. Reyna got a great run to the cone nearly causing a pile-up, but he was able to pull back just in time to avert disaster.

Reyna got another great run down the back stretch and was on Adam' bumper. Adam got high in turn 4 allowing both Reyna and Johnson to get by.

Reyna beat his teammate, Johnson to the checkered flag by .267 seconds for the win. Adam crossed the line third and Quenzer finished fourth. Jones rounded out the top five.

Landon Lewis Edges Out Teammate in Photo Finish for Semi-Pro Championship

Teammates Billy Workman Jr. and Landon Lewis shared the front row of the Semi-Pro main event. The two raced side by side when the green flag dropped with Workman having the slight advantage into turn 1. Ohio-driver, Steven Partin, made it a three-way battle for the lead as Alex Robinson sat back and watched the battle in fourth.

Partin looked to the inside of Lewis to take second on lap 5. Lewis then got out of shape falling back to fifth.

The first caution came on lap 7 when Kevin Oliver got spun around in turn 4. It was Oliver’s second time racing on dirt in his career.

Workman led Partin, Robinson, Stephen Wurtzer and Lewis to the cone for the single-file restart. The yellow flag flew again on the restart when Oliver lost his hood. Despite the loss of his hood Oliver was permitted to keep running. Yet another caution came on the following restart when Cory Phillips stopped in turn 3.

On the next attempt to go green Lewis was racing door to door with Wurtzer for fourth and took the spot on lap 9.

Partin was all over Workman for the lead when the yellow came out on lap 10. Oliver continued to have issues with turn 4.

Joseph Sanoske had hit the cone on the previous restart sending him back two spots when the field lined up yet again.

Workman paced the field ahead of Partin, Robinson, Lewis and Wurtzer.

Lewis drove under Robinson for third on lap 11 as the race for the lead between Workman and Partin continued.

The leaders raced door to door at the line on lap 13 with Workman having the slight advantage.

The yellow flag flew on lap 14 for Joseph Sanoske who stopped in turn 4 after contact with Aaron Updegraff.

The top five for the restart were Workman, Partin, Lewis, Robinson and Jacob Owens.

The caution came again on the restart when Seth Kearchner, Owens, Josh Sanoske and Ryan Shabram piled up in turn 4. The four-car pile-up was a reaction to Partin getting sideways in turn 4. Partin kept the #51 moving keeping his second place spot for the restart.

Lewis was on Partin's bumper for second and Robinson and Wurtzer battled door to door for fourth.

Jorjie Sweger got by Wurtzer and moved into fourth down the back stretch on lap 16. Wurtzer wanted the spot back but the caution came out again on lap 17 before he could make the pass. The yellow was for Quinn Trimmer who spun out in turn 2. Parker Jones also came to a stop in turn 1.

Ron Little and Joseph Sanoske got together coming out of turn 4 on the restart bringing out another caution.

Oliver brought out his third and final caution on lap 21 when he spun out in turn 2.

Workman led Partin, Lewis, Sweger and Tretow for the restart.

Sweger and Tretow were door to door again at the line. The two continued to battle down the back stretch. Contact was made sending Tretow for a wild ride into turn 3 bringing out the red flag lap 22.

Sweger was sent to the rear for the restart after officials reviewed the incident.

Chris Transeau restarted fifth behind Workman, Partin, Lewis and Wurtzer. Transeau started the race in twenty-second after qualifying through his consy.

Lewis stuck his nose under Partin in turn 1 for second on lap 26 but Partin held the spot. Later that lap Lewis edged Partin at the line for the runner-up position.

The final caution of the race came on lap 29 when Cody Atland and Tyler Garretson got together in turn 4.

The field lined up for a green, white, checkered finish behind Workman, Lewis, Partin Wurtzer and Transeau. Lewis looked to the inside of Workman on the restart and battled for the lead the entire white flag lap.

Lewis beat his teammate, Workman to the checkered flag by .001 seconds in an exciting photo finish. Partin held on to finish third and Wurtzer crossed the line fourth. Transeau completed the top five.

Joey Clanton Makes Triumphant Return with Masters Victory

The Masters division features drivers 40 years old. The Dirt Nationals grouped the Golden Masters, drivers over 50, with the Masters for the event.

After nearly three decades away from the wheel of a Legend Car, Joey Clanton lined up on the pole for the Masters feature event. Central PA Legend regular, Travis Perry, lined up second.

Perry stayed with Clanton into turn 1 and took the lead coming out of turn 2.

Clanton was left to hold of Scott Houdeshell who was challenging him for the runner-up spot.

The yellow flag flew on lap 3 when Scott Spidle, Dwyane Holder and Choya Young got together in turns 3 and 4.

Perry led Clanton, Houdeshell, Blaine Leppo and John Gutman for the single-file restart.

Clanton was able to get a nose under Perry coming out of the turns, but it wasn’t enough to make a move for the lead.

On lap 6 Clanton had enough momentum out of turn 2 to take the top spot. Perry stayed close and was on his bumper wanting the position back.

Clanton was pulling away from Perry and the field when the yellow came out on lap 13 for debris in turn 4.

The top five for the restart were Clanton, Perry, Houdeshell, Leppo and Joe Adam.

Adam got under Leppo down the back stretch but couldn’t make the pass. Perry continued to challenge Clanton for the lead.

Adam got by Leppo on lap 17 for fourth. The yellow flag flew again on lap 19 when Rob Blizzard got turned around in turns 3 and 4.

Clanton pulled away down the back stretch as Perry held off a charge from Houdeshell for second.

Top 4 were evenly spaced ahead of Leppo as he held off Gutman and Dawson in a three-car battle for fifth.

Perry used lapped traffic to take the lead back going into turn 3 on lap 25. A three-car battle for the lead between Perry, Clanton and Houdeshell was brewing when the caution came out on lap 27 for Joseph Plunkett in turn 4.

Perry was doing whatever he could to hold off Clanton, but Joey took the lead back at the line with one lap to go.

In the second photo finish of the night Clanton beat Perry to the checkered flag for the win. Houdeshell held on to finish third and Adam crossed the line fourth. Dawson rounded out the top five.

Central PA Legend Driver Jeremy Ott Best in Pro Division

Central Pennsylvania driver, Jeremey Ott shared the front row of the Pro feature with North Carolina-native, Jake Tretow.

Tretow took the lead going in to turn 1 but the caution came out before a lap was in the book for Chuck Dell and Nathan Skaggs who got together in turn 2.

The field lined up for a complete restart. Tretow shot out to the lead once again with Eddie Daniels into second and Ott running third.

Daniels got out of shape challenging Tretow for the lead allowing Ott to take second.

Casey Traxler brought out the yellow flag on lap 3 when he got spun around in turn 4.

Tretow paced the field ahead of Ott, Daniels, Joe Ryan Osborne and Christopher Clanton for the restart.

Daniels wanted second back form Ott on the restart, but he also had to hold off a determined Osborne behind him.

Ott was all over Tretow’s bumper with a good run out of turn 2 but it still wasn’t enough to make a pass for the lead.

Bill Diehl used the outside of turn 4 to get by Osborne for fourth. Clanton followed sending Osborne back to the sixth spot.

Tretow and Ott were still running bumper to bumper when the yellow flag came out on lap 14 for debris in turns 3 and 4.

Daniels lined up third for the restart but was soon black flagged for his rear bumper as it was dragging behind the car.

Tretow and Ott raced door to door on lap 18 with Ott on the inside and Tretow holding on to the lead.

Ott was still using the inside to his advantage and made the pass for the lead coming out of turn 4 on lap 22.

Tretow stayed close and was on Ott's bumper wanting the lead back when a caution came on lap 23. Daniels finally lost his bumper and was sent to the pits ending his night.

Ott led Tretow, Clanton, Diehl and Osborne to the cone for the single-file restart.

Tretow went to the inside of Ott in turns 1 and 2 to take the lead but Ott got him back at the line by a nose to maintain the top spot by .012 seconds.

Casey Traxler spun out in turn 4 bringing out the caution.

Tretow went to the inside once again but Ott held him off in the turns. Clanton entered the picture challenging Tretow for second.

The final caution came on lap 26 when Chuck Dell stopped in turn 3 after a billow of smoke came from the car.

Abbottstown, PA (September 25, 2020) –

Garrett Bard Charges to 305 Victory

Garret Bard lined up fourth for the 20-lap feature on Friday night. Bard charged to the front early in the race to complete the sweep of the 305 feature events at Lincoln in 2020. Bard also won in the 305 sprint series’ visit to the track in July. Bard’s win on Friday was his eighth with the PASS series this year.

Ken Duke and Devin Adams shared the front row for the feature event with Dave Grubell and Bard lined up in row 2.

Duke led the field into turn 1 with Adams going to the high side to challenge Duke for the lead. Duke held the top spot while Bard moved his way to third.

Bard used the outside of turns 1 and 2 to get by Adams for the second spot.

The yellow flag flew on lap 2 for Dave Wickham and Andrew Boyer who got together at the end of the front stretch.

Duke led Bard, Adams, Grubell and Justin Mills to the cone for the restart.

Bard went to the top in turn 1 and Duke slid up in turn 2 to take away his line. Bard dove into turn 3 to take lead at the line right before the red came out on lap 3. Jake Frye jumped the cushion and got upside down in turns 3 and 4.

This time Bard paced the field ahead of Duke, Adams, Grubell and Mills for the restart.

Bard shot out to a commanding lead on the restart. Mills got by Grubell for fourth but Grubell took the spot back at the line on lap 4. The two continued to battle with Mills solidly taking the position on lap 5.

Bard used the high line around the track as he caught the tail end of the field with a 1.5 second lead.

Adams found some speed and was all over Duke for second. The two raced side by side into turn 3 on lap 10 with Adams having the slight advantage at the line.

Adams went to work tracking down Bard for the lead in lapped traffic. Adams closed the gap in lapped traffic with 5 laps to go.

Bard forced to the bottom as he worked through lapped traffic allowing Adams to gain some ground. Bard was able to put a lapped car between him and Adams to create some distance but Adams made quick work of it.

Adams made one last effort for the lead in turns 3 and 4 and raced with Bard to the checkered flag down the front stretch. Bard beat Adams to the line by .137 seconds. Duke finished third and Mills crossed the line fourth. Darek Hauck completed the top five.

305 Sprint heat races were won by Garrett Bard, Ken Duke Jr. and Jake Frye.

On Thursday, October 17, Lincoln Speedway is back in action with the Night of Champions for the 410 and 358 sprints. Action starts at 6:00PM with pit gates open at 3:30PM and grandstand gates opening at 4:00PM.

Freddie Rahmer Wins Third Of Williams Grove Season Friday,

Derek Locke Claims 358 Sprint Main And 2020 Track Title

9/25/20

Mechanicsburg – Freddie Rahmer won his third sprint car feature of the season at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night in the National Open Tune Up race and in doing so the Salfordville speedster expanded his lead in the season-long point standings with just two races to go in the season.

In the 358 sprint main, Derek Locke of Carlisle drove by point challenger Kevin Nouse to score the win and the track title in the division. The victory was also his third of the season at the track.

The 25-lap 410 sprint car main would go non-stop with Rahmer leading flag to flag.

On the opening lap with Rahmer at the helm, TJ Stutts, Anthony Macri and Robbie Kendall raced three-wide through the second corner for the second spot with Kendall coming away with the position.

Kendall would then chase Rahmer as he drew up on the rear of the field and by lap nine the leaders had traffic running directly in front of them.

The high line was the lane of choice on this night and Rahmer refused to drop off of the cushion to get around traffic.

This allowed the front four of Rahmer, Kendall, Macri and Stutts to bunch up and pull within half a straight away of each other while all the pilots waited for someone to pull the trigger and drop to the bottom lane.

Rahmer finally put himself into traffic on the 12th tour, bulling his way into the back of the pack and it was then that Kendall made his first bid for control although Rahmer was up to the task.

With 11 laps to go Rahmer made contact with the backmarker of Tim Glatfelter at the flagstand as he raced to stay at the front.

Moments later Lance Dewease slowed and pulled pitside while racing inside the top ten after also dropping out of the dash earlier in the night.

Kendall took a second stab at the lead, more contentious this time on the 17th tour when he dipped under Rahmer in the third and fourth turns only to come up short as Rahmer continued to refuse to forsake his cushion line around the oval.

After that Rahmer began to snake his way through the field and get away from Kendall as Anthony Macri and Brent Marks made moved in to overtake him.

In the end Rahmer took the win by 1.104 seconds over Macri, Marks, Kendall and Brian Montieth.

Sixth through 10th went to Stutts, Brian Brown, Matt Campbell, Danny Dietrich and Kyle Reinhardt.

With three laps to go, Stutts nearly spun on the turn two cushion but recovered while Danny Dietrich did spin to avoid direct contact before continuing on. At the time, both drivers were vying for a top-five finish.

Heats went to Rahmer, Dewease and Macri with Jeff Halligan scoring the consolation and Rahmer winning the dash to earn the pole for the main event.

Stutts set fast time with a lap of 16.629 seconds.

Kevin Nouse took the lead at the start of the 358 sprint main with the track title awaiting at the end of the 20-lap distance.

Derek Locke started the race in third and watched as Nouse took the lead when action began.

The red flag appeared with two laps recorded for a six-car pile up in the second turn.

When action resumed Locke lined up second and immediately went to work on Nouse for the lead.

He worked either side of the speedway with smooth precision to draw even with Nouse more than once before finally driving by with an outside move in the second turn on lap six.

Once at the front, Locke drove away to the third oval win of his career and of the season while also wrapping up the 2020 track title over Nouse.

Nouse was second in the race followed by Brett Wanner, Steve Owings and Alyson Dietz.

Heats went to Dietz, Nouse and Locke with the last chance race going to Scott Fisher.

Feature Finishes, 9/25/20:

410 sprints, 25 laps: 1. Freddie Rahmer, 2. Anthony Macri, 3. Brent Marks, 4. Robbie Kendall, 5. Brian Montieth, 6. TJ Stutts, 7. Brian Brown, 8. Matt Campbell, 9. Danny Dietrich, 10.

The Jim Nace Memorial National Open At Selinsgrove Speedway

Prestigious Oval Event Brings 37 Years Of History Into 38th Running Saturday

9/20/20

Selinsgrove, Pa – This Saturday’s 38th annual Icon Legacy Homes Jim Nace Memorial National Open at Selinsgrove Speedway will find the race entering its fifth different decade since beginning in 1983.

Along the way the prestigious Selinsgrove event has seen a total of 19 different drivers win the contest since the late Maynard Yingst of Linglestown swept the first three in a row in 1983, 1984 and in 1985.

But the now fall classic at Selinsgrove Speedway was originally a summer sizzler with the first four taking place in either June or July.

It wasn’t until 1987 when Ohio’s Dave Blaney got the win that the race was moved into the autumn of the year, taking place on October 3 before it settled into September in 1989 as Midwestern star Doug Wolfgang scored a 75-lap United Sprint Association sanctioned Open worth over $51,000.

The event domination of Fred Rahmer took center stage during the second half of the 1990s as the Salfordville speedster scored five of six races between 1995 and 2000.

In fact, to date no other driver has been as successful in the Selinsgrove Nationals as the retired Rahmer.

His closest pursuers on the all-time Open win list are the late Greg Hodnett and retiree Todd Shaffer, both of whom each counted four checkered flags in the race.

Following the untimely death of five-time Selinsgrove Speedway sprint car track titlist Jim Nace in 2009, the race format was expanded into two segments in 2010 and was now run as the Jim Nace Memorial National Open.

The race used the twin segment format for a total of three years before again becoming a single event in 2013.

Interestingly enough, Thompsontown’s Nace only ever recorded one top-five finish in the Open and never scored the big payday but his Selinsgrove record of five track titles and 46 super sprint car wins certainly cements him as the affair’s namesake.

The Jim Nace Memorial National Open was expanded financially in 2019 to post $20,000 to the winner of a 40-lap contest, billed as the biggest unsanctioned sprint car payday to be posted in the state of Pennsylvania and in the East.

Over the years the most successful drivers in the race that haven’t been able to score a win include four-time Open top-five finishers Paul Lotier and Crish Eash along with three-time top-fivers Randy Wolfe, Joey Borich, Sean Michael, TJ Stutts, Mark Smith and Brent Marks.

On the car owner side of the event, no entry has been driven to National Open victory more than the famed Hamilton Motorsports No. 77 machine, having made the victory lane trip some six times.

Keith Kauffman scored for owner Al Hamilton in 1988 with Lance Dewease taking the W in 2002 while Fred Rahmer sandwiched four wins in between.

Bob Stewart, proprietor of the No. 12 Apple Motorsports sprinter, owns four race triumphs with one belonging to Rahmer, two to Hodnett and one to Chad Layton in 2006.

Three time ownership winners have been Maynard Yingst, Gary and Patty Beam and Zane Highlands.

Saturday’s $20,000 to win 38th annual Jim Nace Memorial National Open gets underway at 7 pm. The race carries a raindate of Sunday, September 27 at 6 pm.

Saturday gates open at 4:30 pm.

Adult general admission for the season finale is set at $30 with students ages 12- 17 priced at $15. Kids ages 11 and under are always admitted for FREE at Selinsgrove Speedway.

Reserved seats can be purchased at an additional price of $2 for all ages. Pit admission is set at $40.

Advanced general admission tickets and reserved seats are available by emailing contact information to: promoter@selinsgrovespeedway.com.

Saturday, October 17 (6:00pm) NIGHT OF CHAMPIONS for 410 Sprints + 358 Sprints [final point race of the season] [rain date of Sunday, October 16]

Abbottstown, PA (September 19, 2020) – Kyle Larson’s 39th win of the 2020 season came on Saturday night in the $20,000 to win Dirt Classic 7 at Lincoln Speedway. Larson added his name to the prestigious list of Dirt Classic champions that includes Stevie Smith, Lance Dewease, Tim Shaffer, and Brian Montieth.

The Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions 39th visit to Lincoln Speedway brought a solid field of 53-cars to vie for a spot in the $20,000 to win, $1,000 to start 40-lap feature.

Following the unique format of the Dirt Classic, that includes points for time trials and two rounds of heats, Kyle Larson lined up on the pole having the highest point total of the night. Rico Abreu was second and the lone member of the PA Posse in the top five was Anthony Macri who lined up third.

Larson held the lead going into turn 1 as he went to the bottom and Rico went high.

Brian Brown bobbled and fell off the pace and Brandon Rahmer pulled off the track, but the green flag stayed out.

Abreu got into the wall in turn 4 allowing Macri to get by for second on lap 2. Aaron Reutzel also capitalized on Abreu’s mishap getting by him to move into third.

Brent Marks used a slider in turn 2 to take fourth from Rico on lap 6.

As Larson approached lapped traffic on lap 10 the tail end of the field was battling three wide for position.

Reutzel was closing in on Macri for second as Marks held off a charge from his cousin, Brock Zearfoss for fourth. Zearfoss took the spot on lap 14.

Larson held a 2.326 second lead over Marci as they worked through lapped traffic at the half-way point.

The first caution of the race came on lap 25 for Danny Dietrich who got spun around in turn 4. While the yellow was still out, Tim Glatfelter came to a stop on the front stretch with a flat front tire.

Larson led Macri, Reutzel, Zearfoss and Marks to the cone for the single-file restart. With the leaders mostly using the bottom line around the track Cory Eliason went to the top to pass cars on the restart, driving from tenth to eighth in one lap. Marks used the top as well to get by Zearfoss and take back the fourth spot.

The yellow flag flew again on lap 30 when Chad Trout, who had set quick time in time trials, got into the inside wall in turn 2. The caution with 10 laps to go erased a 3.172 second lead for Larson.

Once again Larson paced the field for the restart. Reutzel drove under Macri in turns 1 and 2 to take second on the restart. Marks was right there to challenge Macri for third and made the pass.

Abreu made his way back into the top five after getting by Zearfoss.

The red flag flew on lap 34 when Paul McMahan and Dietrich got together in turn 3 sending Dietrich on a wild ride.

Larson led Reutzel, Marks, Macri and Abreu for the final restart of the race with six laps to go.

Eliason used the top once again on the restart, this time to take sixth from Zearfoss. Marks also went high trying to close the gap on Reutzel.

Larson got his fourteenth All Star win of the season beating Reutzel to the checkered flag by 3.165 seconds. Marks crossed the line third and Abreu was fourth. Macri held on to finish fifth.

Reutzel Gets Third Grove Win In All Stars Gunn Memorial Dirt Classic Qualifier

Hanson claims 305s

9/18/20

Mechanicsburg – All Stars point leader Aaron Reutzel of Clute, Texas, scored the $5,000 victory in the Jack Gunn Memorial Dirt Classic Qualifier for sprint cars on Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway.

Reutzel took the lead from Gio Scelzi one lap shy of the halfway point in the 30-lap main event to notch his third career victory at the famed oval where he became the first-ever All Stars circuit regular to win a sanctioned event last season.

With the win Reutzel continues to be the only All Stars driver to ever win at the track after what was the 40th outing for the circuit at Williams Grove on Friday night.

Fresno, California’s Gio Scelzi started second in the field and nabbed the lead with a massive slider over polesitter Brian Brown on the initial green when the field roared into the first corner.

Scelzi was then off and running with the lead as Brown raced second until lap six when fourth starter Reutzel made his first bid for the runner up spot with an attempted slider in the first and second turns.

However Brown rallied back to reclaim the spot only to again fall victim two laps later and this time Reutzel made the move stick.

Leader Scelzi entered the rear of the field on lap 10 of the contest and then lost significant ground to Reutzel on lap 13 when he lost the handle on the cushion in turn two and nearly spun out.

This allowed Reutzel to close drastically before he was able to drive under Scelzi for control on lap 14.

With Scelzi on the cushion, Reutzel took the low line through the first and second turns and then drag raced Scelzi onto the backstretch to emerge with control.

Once Reutzel was at the front, attention shifted to the battle for third between Brown and fifth starter Kyle Larson.

The pair raced hard for the spot with Larson working the top before he took the position only to see Brown work his magic and drive back by with 12 laps to go.

Larson refused to give up his runs on the high side until late in the race, continuing to rally for third to no avail.

A lone caution flag with two laps to go settled the non-stop pace when fifth runner Zeb Wise slowed in the second corner.

Reutzel walked off on the restart for the win by 1.514 seconds over Scelzi.

Brown blew a right rear on the final circuit, falling off of the pace.

Larson rode home third followed by Paul McMahan and Brent Marks.

Sixth through 10th went to Anthony Macri, Danny Dietrich, Kerry Madsen, Freddie Rahmer and Dylan Cisney.

The win was Reutzel’s 10th on the All Stars tour this season and his 14th overall in 2020 competition.

“Our car was phenomenal tonight,” Reutzel said.

“I could blow in on the top, move through the middle and run the bottom.”

Heats went to Brown, Wise, McMahan and Reutzel with twin dashes going to Brown and Scelzi.

Chat Trout won the B Main.

Scelzi set quick time over the field with a lap of 16.742 seconds.

Jaremi Hanson started on the pole and won the 20-lap 305 sprint main to close the night.

Eighth starter Ken Duke Jr. rode home second followed by John Walp, Derek Hauck and Dave Brown Jr.

Heats went to Jake McLain, Jared Zienkoaski, Kirsten Hess and Duke with twin consolations going to Dominic Melair and Landon Price.

LINCOLN SPEEDWAY

Abbottstown, PA

KYLE LARSON BACK IN VICTORY LANE WITH $6,900 WELDON STERNER WIN

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Saturday, September 19 (7:00pm) ALL STAR CIRCUIT OF CHAMPIONS | $20,000 to WIN DIRT CLASSIC VII for 410 Sprints (TT) [rain date: Sun, Sept. 20]

Thursday, September 24 (6:00pm) Open practice for all divisions

Friday, September 25 (6:00pm) DIRT NATIONALS for Central PA Legends + 305 Sprints

Saturday, September 26 (6:00pm) DIRT NATIONALS for Central PA Legends + 358 Sprints

Abbottstown, PA (September 16, 2020) – Kyle Larson was shut out of victory lane at Lincoln earlier in the year when he made the trip to Central PA for Speedweek. On Wednesday night Larson was back on top of his short-track game when he wired the field in the 33-lap Weldon Sterner Memorial feature to score a $6,900 payday. Larson’s win also earned him a guaranteed starting spot in Saturday’s Dirt Classic VII.

Larson shared the front row with pole-sitter Rico Abreu. With invaders making up the front row, the PA Posse was represented by Anthony Macri and TJ Stutts in row two for the start of the main event.

When the green flag flew Larson and Abreu were racing door to door with Larson having the slight advantage at the flag stand. Larson held on to the lead with Abreu in second, Stutts in third, Lance Dewease in fourth and Macri in fifth.

The first caution of the race came on lap 2 when Brian Brown came to a stop on the front stretch. Brian Montieth, who was sporting the Sterner Cement #69 wing for the night’s memorial race, had just passed Macri to enter into the top five when the yellow came out, sending him back to sixth for the restart.

Larson paced the field ahead of Abreu, Stutts, Dewease and Macri for the single-file restart. Larson and Abreu both opted to run the top in turns 1 and 2 while Dewease used the bottom to get by Stutts for third.

The yellow came out again on lap 4 when Brian Montieth got turned around in turn 4. Montieth nearly got upside-down with a front right flat tire. Montieth’s team changed the tire and he rejoined the field for the restart.

The running order of the top five for the restart was Larson, Abreu, Dewease, Stutts and Macri.

The All Star Circuit of Champion point leader, Aaron Reutzel, was a rocket on the restart, getting by Macri on the top of turn 4 for fifth and then beating Stutts to the line to take fourth. Reutzel went to work on reeling in Dewease.

Larson entered lapped traffic on lap 9 and it wasn’t long before he was in heavy traffic allowing Abreu to close in.

After making his way through the heavy traffic Larson pulled away from Abreu. While Larson and Abreu were running the top, Dewease was using the bottom line around the track to reel in Rico. Abreu tried to take Dewease’s line away by going to the bottom in turn 1 on lap 20, but Abreu’s car slid up the track allowing Dewease to make the pass for second.

Danny Dietrich brought out the caution on lap 23 when he got turned around in turn 1. Dietrich rejoined the field.

Larson went high and Dewease opted to go low into turn 1 on the restart. Abreu used the top to close in on Dewease as Macri and Stutts battled for fifth.

Another caution came on lap 29 when Ian Madsen got into the wall in turn 2.

Larson led Dewease, Abreu, Reutzel and Stutts to the cone for the final restart of the race.

Once again Larson went high and Dewease went low. Rico got by Dewease using the top of the track. Lance went to the top to hold off a late race charge from Reutzel.

Larson took the checkered flag .746 seconds ahead of Abreu. Dewease finished third and Reutzel crossed the line fourth. Macri held off Stutts for a fifth place finish.

This Saturday, September 19, Lincoln Speedway is back in action with the Dirt Classic VII. Action starts at 7:00PM with pit gates opening at 3:30PM and grandstand gates opening at 4:00PM.

Dewease Earns Record Seventh Tuscarora 50 Win in Front of Record Crowd at Port Royal Speedway

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Penn. (Sept. 12, 2020) In the world of sports, the number seven is entrenched with greatness.

Richard Petty, Dale Earnhardt and Jimmie Johnson all won seven championships to cement their legacy as NASCAR's greatest drivers.

In football, seven is what everyone is aiming for in terms of scoring touchdowns. In baseball and basketball, game seven is when all the chips are on the line and the stars come out and legends are made.

On Saturday night, Lance Dewease further entrenched his name in the history books of sprint car racing and Port Royal Speedway as he bested Anthony Macri and Dylan Cisney and the Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 to pick up his record breaking seventh Tuscarora 50 presented by Packer's Concessions and Ramsey's Car Wash of Mifflintown title at the Juniata County oval.

Even more impressive, Dewease has now won Tuscarora 50 titles in four separate decades (90's, 00's, 2010's and 2020). Oh yea, the win was worth an all-time high $53,000 plus $1275 in lap money.

"Honestly, I always just wanted to race and I never dreamed of winning seven or anything really," said Dewease. "I've had some great teams over the years and some great wins, but this team here is so much fun and this is just really cool."

Dewease and Rico Abreu led the field to the green flag and it was Dewease jumping out to the early lead. Abreu was right on his tail at the flagstand. Two laps later Macri, who started sixth, got by TJ Stutts for third.

Two laps later Stutts slowed on the track to bring out the first caution with motor issues. Meanwhile Kyle Larson, who started 22nd on the grid, was already up to 11th. When the field went back to green-flag action Larson broke inside the top-10, but Dewease was in command up front.

Over the next seven laps, Abreu kept Dewease within striking distance and he was slowly reeling in the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame driver. He tried on lap 13 to slide him for the lead entering turn 1 and he briefly held the lead, but Dewease powered back under him down the backstretch.

Buried heavy a lapped traffic, five laps later, Abreu once again reeled in the leader and this time he used a head of steam off the outside of turn three and four to lead lap 19.

"It was getting interesting there in lap traffic and I think I was maybe a little too relaxed," said Dewease. "He got by me there and I was definitely a little upset with myself, but I wasn't about to push it that early in the race."

Abreu didn’t have a lot of time to open up a lead though as the caution flew one lap later when Brian Brown came to a stop on the backstretch. Abreu led the next five laps with limited movement throughout the field before a competition yellow flew at halfway that allowed teams to make adjustments and fuel up.

Once the field went back to green flag action, Abreu jumped out to the lead and by lap 30 he held nearly a 1.0 second advantage. Dewease was searching around the speedway for a way to make up ground and by lap 37 he had cut the distance slightly.

Meanwhile, Larson was running in seventh and newly crowned track champion Logan Wagner was running in 9th from his 19th starting spot.

Fan's dreams for a late race battle between Abreu and Dewease were shattered though on lap 37 when Abreu slowed on the backstretch with mechanical issues to hand the lead back to Dewease.

"We made a few changes there at the halfway point and I think we were going to have something for him anyways, but it's a shame we didn’t get to find out," said Dewease. "Rico is a class act and you hate to see that for him, but I wasn't going to be upset about leading the race as 50 laps is the name of the game."

Dewease commanded the field on the restart and jumped out to a 1.5 second advantage by lap 40, Meanwhile Macri and Cisney were putting on a show behind him for the second position as the two traded sliders at both ends of the track.

One lap later it was last year's Tuscarora 50 winner, Aaron Reutzel, slowing with rear end damage after contact with the outside guardrail to bring out the caution. Meanwhile Larson had cracked the top five.

With everyone wondering if Yung Money had one last charge in him, Dewease jumped out to a 2.3 second advantage over the next five laps. Macri and Cisney continued to go after the second positon, with Macri finally clearing Cisney on lap 45. Larson moved into fourth as well.

Macri cut the distance in half over the final handful of laps, but Dewease was just too far ahead to catch and the Fayetteville, Pa. legend brought the record-setting crowd to it’s feet as he crossed the checkered flag on top for the second consecutive night.

Maxcri, Cisney, Larson and Thursday's winner Cory Eliason completed the top five while Wagner, Tyler Courtney, Spencer Bayston, Kerry Madsen and Freddie Rahmer made up the rest of the top- 10.

"Sometimes you have the best car and don't win and sometimes things fall your way and it seemed tonight it was just meant to be," said Dewease. "We haven't had a season up to our standards this year and it just seems we haven't been real good. I think people maybe underestimated us a bit and I this is just a really special night."

For Macri, he thought that he wasted too much time battling with Cisney for second and that if he'd cleared him earlier he may have had a shot.

"We were good all night, but I think I used up my stuff a bit trying to hold off Dylan," said Macri, who also earned $300 for setting quick time earlier in the night. "This is the second night in a row we're sitting here second to that 69k car, so maybe we're just a second-place car this weekend."\

Earlier in the night Lucas Wolfe picked up $2000 during a non-qualifier feature event that lasted 20 laps. Wolfe also earned a guaranteed spot in next years Tuscarora 50, which speedway official announced will once again be a three-day show in 2021 with an increased purse and feature the All Stars again.

Brett Michalski, Tyler Walton, Curt Stroup and Tyler Bear completed the top-five.

Abbottstown, PA (September 12, 2020) – The super late models made their second appearance of the season at Lincoln Speedway on Saturday night. A strong field of 21-cars was in the pits to vie for the $3,000 prize. After taking over the lead on the back stretch on lap 1, Bryan Bernheisel wired the field to claim his first super late model victory at the track. Bernheisel held one win in the limited late model division going into Saturday night’s competition.

Tyler Horst and Bryan Bernheisel made up the front row of the 30-lap feature. Horst led the field into turn 1 with Bernheisel to his outside. Bernheisel grabbed the lead down the back stretch to lead lap 1.

Bryan’s dad, Jim Bernheisel, and Nick Dickson battled for third with Jim holding the spot. Jim went to work on Horst for second and then the yellow flag came out on lap 2. Chad Julius got turned around in turn 2.

Bryan led, Horst, Jim, Dickson and Shaun Jones to the cone for the single-file restart.

Bryan went to the top on the restart and started to pull away from the field. Horst held on to second as Jim was closing in once again. Jones got by Dickson for fourth.

The second caution of the race cam on lap 5 for Chad Julius and DJ Groft when they got together in turns 1 and 2.

Jim got by Horst for second. Jones didn’t waste any time starting to work on Horst for the third spot. Jason Covert entered the top five on lap on lap 6.

Bryan had a straight-away lead as he caught lapped traffic on lap 10.

Behind the Bernheisel duo a three-car battle for third was well underway between Horst, Jones and Covert.

Kyle Martin got backwards in turn 2 on lap 11 bringing out the yellow flag.

The top five for the restart were Bryan, Jim, Horst, Jones and Covert.

Once again Bryan pulled away from the field on the restart. Jones and Horst raced door to door down the back stretch for third.

Covert joined the battle for third making it a three-car battle at the line on lap 13. Jones got by Horst at the line to take third. Two laps later Covert followed taking fourth from Horst.

Bernheisel had a commanding lead as he caught lapped traffic yet again on lap 16. Jim, Covert and Jones battled for second with Covert getting by Jones for third on lap 17.

Jones didn’t let Covert pull away and the two raced side by side for position allowing Dylan Yoder to catch them. Yoder, who started fifteenth in the main event, got by Jones for fourth on lap 19.

Covert got by Jim for second with 10 laps to go. Jim hit the wall and lost some ground falling to fifth but the caution came out allowing Jim to salvage his third place spot.

Pole-sitter Horst pulled in right before the yellow. The caution on lap 21 was for Kyle Martin.

Covert stayed with Bryan going into turn 1 on the restart while Jim, Jones and Yoder battled for third. Jones got the spot by a nose over Jim at the line on lap 26 as the two were door to door.

Gene Knaub, who started the race twelfth, used the bottom to get by Yoder for fifth with two laps to go.

Bernheisel got to the checkered flag 1.250 seconds ahead of Covert. Jones held on to finish third and Knaub crossed the line fourth. Jim salvaged a fifth place finish.

Jim Bernheisel, Bernie Beard and Chad Myers won the super late model heat races.

Brett Wanner Wins and Claims Summer Series Championship

Not only did Brett Wanner win his second feature event of the season at Lincoln on Saturday night, with the win Wanner also claimed the 358 Sprint Summer Series Championship.

Wanner shared the front row with Dylan Norris for the 25-lap feature. Wanner led the field into turn 1. Norris opted for the low line through the turns to hold onto second.

Fourth-place starter, Cameron Burke slowed after making contact with Cody Fletcher in turn 4. Burke was able to make it off the track before the yellow flag flew.

Shortly after Burke exited the track the caution did come out on lap 3 for a four-car pile up in turns 3 and 4. Zane Rudisill, CJ Tracy, Travis Scott and Jordan Strikler were involved. All four cars rejoined the field.

Wanner paced the field ahead of Norris, Fletcher, Jordan Givler and Chad Criswell for the restart.

Norris continued to use the bottom line around the track to stick with Wanner who was running the high line. Givler was working on Fletcher for third when the yellow came out again on lap 6. Kyle Rohrbaugh ended up nosed into the inside wall on the back stretch.

Givler made the pass for third before the caution came out. The top five for the restart were Wanner, Norris, Givler, Fletcher and Criswell.

Going into Saturday night’s feature, Todd Rittenhouse Jr. had a 65 point advantage over Fletcher in the season point standings for first. Fletcher fell off the pace on lap 7 bringing out the caution. Not what Fletcher wanted to have happen with the point battle so tight with only two races remaining after Saturday.

With the loss of Fletcher, Steve Owings made his way into the top 5 for the restart.

Chris Frank had his eyes set on getting into the top 5 and battled side by side with Owings at the line on lap 8. Owings edged out Frank by inches to hold onto fifth.

The point battle took another interesting turn when Todd Rittenhouse Jr. brought out the red flag on lap 11. Rittenhouse took a wild ride in turns 3 and 4.

Criswell battled Givler for third down the front stretch on the restart as Wanner drove away from the rest of the field.

Givler got away from Criswell’s challenge and used the top line around the track to hunt down Norris for second.

Norris was closing in on Wanner as the laps wound down. Dylan made a pass for the lead down the back stretch and the two crossed the line side by side on lap 23 with Norris having the advantage.

Wanner reclaimed the lead coming out of turn 4 with white flag waving and beat Norris back to the checkered flag by .186 seconds. Givler finished a close third and Criswell crossed the line fourth. Owings completed the top five.

358 Sprint heats were won by Brett Wanner, Dylan Norris, Jordan Givler and Cody Fletcher.

Scott Shaffer Best in Vintage Outlaw Series

Gene Wrightstone started on the pole of the 20-lap Vintage Outlaw Racing Series feature. Wrightstone led the field into turn 1 with Mark Hahn and Jeff Paulson in tow. Paulson got by Hahn for second and Mike Stofflet followed taking third.

Paulson caught Wrightstone and was challenging him for the lead when the caution came out on lap 4. Stofflet, who had been running third, got turned around in turn 2.

Paulson took a look to the inside of Wrightstone on the restart but couldn’t make the pass. Paulson took the lead down the back stretch on lap 6 right before the caution came out for Hahn. Hahn had been running third and got backwards in turn 4.

Scott Shaffer was closing in on Wrightstone for second as Paulson entered lapped traffic.

Shaffer got by Wrightstone and went to work reeling in Paulson. Shaffer got by Paulson for the lead on the back stretch as the two navigated lapped traffic.

After spinning out early, Stofflet had made his way back up through the field and into the top five. Stofflet got by Wrightstone for third on lap 15 as the two raced down the back stretch.

Stofflet beat Paulson to the checkered flag for the win. Stofflet finished third and Wrightstone crossed the line fourth. Hahn completed the top five.

Lance Dewease Takes the Night Before the 50 With the All Star Circuit of Champions at Port Royal Speedway

Jeff Rine Wins Super Late Model Feature While Logan Wagner and Andy Haus Wrap Up Points Titles

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Penn. (Sept. 11, 2020)- Lance Dewease outdueled Anthony Macri and Kyle Larson to pick up the Night Before the 50 victory with the Ollie's Bargain Outlets All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1Friday night during the 166th Annual Juniata County Fair at the Port Royal Speedway.

The win was the 40th career All Star triumph for the Keystone state favorite and the 114th all-time victory for Dewease at the Juniata County oval. Courtesy of Ted Reitz, the triumph paid $6000 to win and leaves Dewease as favorite as he heads into Saturday night's $53,000 finale looking for his record seventh Tuscarora 50 title.

"We were really good all night. We needed that to get our confidence going as we havn't had the best of seasons up until now," said Dewease. "The race is 30 laps and we just wanted to get to the end. I knew if I could get to them they might slip up and I was just waiting my time for an opportunity."

Australian invader Kerry Madsen and Larson lined up on the front row for the 30-lap affair and Madsen pulled a slider on Larson entering turn one to go to the point. However, the former NASCAR star showed why he's been so successful at the speedway by ducking back under him to take the lead exiting turn four and led lap one.

Macri, who started third threaded the needle between Dewease and Madsen on the frontstretch the following lap. Dewease moved into third as well. One lap later the only caution of the night flew when Paul McMahan stopped on the backstretch.

As he has so many times already this season, Larson blasted out to a half straightaway lead following the restart. By lap 10, Dewease was all over Macri for the runner-up position and he was working the bottom of the speedway with perfection.

"Anthony has been so good here this year and he really knows how to get around this place up top," said Dewease. "I was trying a few things and he was pulling away form me so I knew I had to get back to the bottom and just be patient."

Lapped traffic entered the picture on lap 12 and that allowed both Macri and Dewease to start chipping away at Larson's advantage. With 15 laps to go, the top three were all under a blanket and Macri took his shot by throwing a slider entering turn three to briefly take the lead, but Larson again powered under to hold the lead heading to the flagstand.

Larson briefly went to the bottom of the track in an effort to protect his lead, but found that he was better up top and opened back up a near 1.0 second advantage two laps later. Macri again closed the distance on lap 18 and he tried the same move again in turn's three and four, which Larson held on by a nose to lead the lap.

With 10 laps to go, Macri tried again in turn one and two, but Larson again ducked under him coming down the backstretch to stay up front.

"I think as a driver if I had been a little smarter I might have held up a bit," said Macri. "He was right in my sights and I got a little excited and I think we needed to wait just a little bit."

With the leaders throwing haymakers at each other, Dewease saw his opportunity he'd been patiently waiting for. With all three podium drivers within a few car-lengths, Dewease made his move on lap 25 as he shot past Macri in turn's one and two and he slid under Larson entering turn three to take the lead coming off four.

"I actually thought Kyle was going to come down and take my momentum and he never did," said Dewease. "I don’t know if he expected me to make that move, but we got past him and that's an accomplishment in itself."

Dewease searched the track throughout the final five laps to find the best way around in clean air, but nobody was going to touch him as he cruised home to the checkered flag by a margin of 2.484 seconds.

"You know Kyle beat me once earlier this year and he waved at me when he passed me at Williams Grove," said Dewease. "I wasn't going to let that happen again. Those guys were both going really hard and you have to on a track like this. But I don’t get passed too often once I get the lead and here we are tonight."

Macri was able to get by Larson on the white flag lap to secure the second spot and believes he has a car capable of finishing one spot higher Saturday night.

"To run second to Lance and to finish ahead of Kyle, we are definitely doing something right," said Macri. "We'll do our homework a little and scratch our heads and see if we can be sitting one better tomorrow night."

Larson, Dylan Cisney and Rico Abreu made up the top five, while Madsen, Thursday's winner Cory Eliason, Brent Marks, Danny Dietrich and Ian Madesn filled out the top-10. Brock Zearfodss finished 11th and gained 15 positions to earn the $500 hard charger courtesy of Valley Supply Inc.

Logan Wagner finished 16th to lock up his third consecutive Weikert's Livestock 410 Sprint Car championship at the speedway as well.

"It's been a sort of up and down season and it was soo cool to race down to the end with my dad for a point championship," said Wagner. "I'm glad we could come out on top, but now we turn our focus to the Tuscarora 50 and see if we can’t cap off this weekend with some more success."

Super Late Models

Jeff Rine capitalized on a front row starting spot to pick up the River Valley Builders Super Late Model feature win over pole sitter Trent Brenneman and Gary Stuhler.

The feature event win was worth $3000 courtesy of Ted Reitz and moved Rine solely into 10th all time on the wins list of the speedway in late model competition with 25

"Finally we got one here this year. Starting position means so much at this place," said Rine. "That last restart saved us as my tires needed cooled off and we were able to make it work."

Trent Brenneman led the majority of the race from the pole position, but Rine and Colton Flinner were hot in pursuit for the first half of the race.

Rine was closing rapidly on the bottom of the speedway, but a three car incident with 10 laps to go gave Brenneman clean air and a clean start.

When the field returned to green flag action, Rine got a run on the outside of turn one and exited turn two with the lead. Stuhler also dispatched of Flinner on the restart to move into the podium position and was all over Brenneman for second.

Brenneman rebounded over the next several laps and was closing on Rine with three to go. However, Rine was too good in clean air and took the checkers by a 2.027 advantage.

Brenneman, Stuher, Ross Robinson and Dylan Yoder rounded out the top five. Flinner, Dan Stone, Andy Haus, Brett Schadel and Jim Yoder made up the top ten.

"I was getting signals that Flinner was on the top back there and I knew Trent was going to be tough form the front row, but we found something here recently and this car was just great," said Rine. "I wish we'd been a little better earlier this year, but it’s nice to close out the year in this new victory lane."

With his seventh-place finish, Haus wrapped up the track championship in the Super Late Model division as well.

"It's been a short season, but we spent a lot of long nights working in the garage to get to this point," said Haus. "We were way off tonight and we went through a lot of equipment to get to this point. The competition here is as good as it gets and it’s unbelievable to be sitting here as a champion."

Cory Eliason Strikes First During Night One of Tuscarora 50 Opener with All Star Circuit of Champions

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Pa. (Sept 10, 2020)- Cory Eliason kicked off the 2020 racing season at Port Royal Speedway with a victory during opening day back in March. If Thursday night’s performance is a sign of things to come, he just may end the season in victory lane at the Juniata County oval as well.

Eliason bested Australian invader Kerry Madsen and the legendary Tony Stewart to pick up the Ollie’s Bargain Outlets All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 night one opener presented by Ted Reitz of the 53rd Annual Tuscarora 50 at Port Royal Speedway during the 166th Annual Juniata County Fair.

The win was worth $6000 and came on an incredibly fast racetrack that saw a handful of drivers get upside down and suffer flat tires throughout the duration of the feature.

“They don’t call this place ‘The Speed Palace’ for nothing,” exclaimed Eliason. “It was a blast here tonight and definitely a lot different than what we saw on Monday during the Labor Day Classic. The kind of track we had here tonight is kind of my forte and we were fast right out the gate tonight.”

After a pair of red flag incidents for James McFadden and Kyle Larson halted racing action without the completion of a lap, Stewart and weekend invader Brian Brown led the field to the green flag, with Stewart getting the jump and leading lap one.

Eliason, who started third, dropped to fourth on the opening lap but he quickly regained the position a lap later by getting around Madsen and he slipped under Brown entering turn 1 on lap three to move into the runner-up position.

By lap five, Eliason was all over the rear bumper of Stewart and two laps later he shot under underneath the leader to take the point entering turn one. However, the pass was negated when third place running Brown blew a right-rear tire and got into the outside guardrail to bring out the caution.

On the return to green, Stewart got a great restart and jumped back out to the lead but Eliason quickly showed he was to be denied. On lap 10 he closed to the bumper of Stewart again and the two raced side by side heading to the flag stand two laps later with Stewart holding the narrowest of advantages.

However, the momentum was enough for Eliason to pounce as he slid under Stewart to take the top spot and lead lap 13.

“You could get a good run and roll the bottom and that curb up top in three and four was very much like Tulare in California and that’s where I could make up my ground early,” said Eliason. “Tony kind of was showing me the way out there in three and four and I knew I had to lock it in and get him where I could as soon as possible.”

Eliason hit lap traffic at the halfway point and with a commanding lead of 2.345 seconds, he had nearly got tangled up in a wreck when track point leader Logan Wagner got into the fence exiting turn 2 and got upside down. He collected Spencer Bayston and Tyler Bear, but Eliason was able to evade any contact to stay in front.

On the restart, Stewart showed his nose through the middle in turn’s one and two, but Eliason was just too strong as he blasted off the cushion to lead the way once again.

Seventh place start Gio Scelzi had found something on the top of the speedway and after cracking the top-five earlier, he moved past Lance Dewease for fourth with 11 laps remaining. Three laps later Rico Abreu was bitten by the tire bug though as he slowed with a flat left-rear to bring out the caution.

Stewart tried the bottom again on the restart, but Eliason again powered off the top of the track to blast out to a hefty advantage. It looked like he was going to coast home to a commanding victory, but Brock Zearfoss slowed after he blew a right-rear tire in turn three and nearly collected Eliason as he was coming around for the checkered flag.

“You know I thought we were going to lose one there as I came around and saw Brock right in the middle of the track and I had nowhere to go,” said Eliason. “I just turned the car sideways and hoped there’d be enough room to get by and thankfully there was.”

The late caution set up a green-white-checkered finish, but Eliason was not going to be denied as he cruised home to the checkered flag by a 2.114 second advantage. Madsen was able to slide past Stewart for second on the white flag lap, while Scelzi and Tyler Courtney filled out the top-five.

Aaron Reutzel, Ian Madsen, Anthony Macri, Brent Marks and Dewease made up the top-10. Ian Madsen earned $500 as the hard charger (+17) courtesy of Valley Supply Inc.

“We worked on a few things tonight, but nothing major,” said Eliason. “Obviously our main focus is Saturday night as that’s where the big money Is on the line, but this is a nice way to start the weekend and I’m looking forward to two more nights here at Port Royal.”

For Madsen, he knew in clean air Eliason would be hard to catch and was just happy to escape night one with a podium finish. He also set quick time earlier in the night and received $200 courtesy of Packer’s Concessions.

“I don’t know that we could’ve done much different as Cory was just really good and tough to pass,” said Madsen. “I was just kind of biding my time out there and luckily I got a late restart to get by Tony and I just needed more time and help if we wanted to get Cory.”

Heat races were won by Brown, Eliason, Dewease, Stewart and Christopher Bell, while Stewart and Brown won dash races. Freddie Rahmer picked up the B-main victory.

Anthony Macri Continues Winning Ways at Port Royal With 68th Annual Labor Day Classic Triumph

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Pa. (Sept. 7, 2020)- Anthony Macri capitalized on a front row starting spot and held off Brock Zearfoss and Logan Wagner to claim the 68th Annual Foss Jewelers Labor Day Classic Monday evening at Port Royal Speedway.

The victory was Macri’s sixth Port Royal Speedway triumph of the season and was worth $4000 for his efforts.

“I feel like we are clicking on all cylinders right now,” said Macri. “My confidence is obviously pretty good right now and I’m just glad we held on for the win.”

Macri lined up on the front row alongside of one-time winner on the season, Jeff Halligan, and after the first green flag was called back by track officials, he used momentum exiting turn two to slide under Halligan to lead lap one.

Zearfoss, who started fifth, was on the move early on as he moved to fourth on lap two and third the following circuit.

With the track taking rubber early, Halligan capitalized on Macri running the top of the Speedway and he used the bottom of the speedway in turn’s one and two to take the lead on lap five.

However, with lap traffic entering the picture only a few laps later, Macri capitalized on a rookie mistake by Halligan to lcose the gap significantly on lap eight.

Now glued to the bottom of the track, Macri regained the lead on lap nine and he started to stretch his advantage when the caution flew on lap 12 for a flat tire for Ian Madsen. By then, Zearfoss had disposed of Halligan as well and was lurking in the rearview.

“Jim and I talked before the feature and he told ne to run the top until we got passed and we got passed early,” said Macri, referring to his crew chief Jim Shuttlesworth. “He passed me, and I went into maintaining mode and getting into lapped traffic he made a mistake and I just snuck under him and started saving my stuff.”

Zearfoss had an opportunity on the restart to challenge Macri, but the caution again flew one lap later for a spinning Kyle Smith in turn one. Macri opened a half second advantage within three laps after a return to green, but the caution flew again on lap 18 for debris.

One more caution flew on lap 21 for a slowing Brent Marks, but for the rest of the race the name of the game was staying on the bottom and not missing your marks. Track point leader Logan Wagner was able to sneak into a podium position as well, but neither him or Zearfoss was able to capitalize as Macri hit all of his marks and crossed under the checkered flag by an advantage of 1.644 seconds.

Stutts and Halligan finished up the top-five, while Danny Dietrich, Mike Wagner, AJ Flick, Dylan Cisney and Justin Peck rounded out the top-ten.

Zach Newlin earned $400 courtesy of Valley Supply and Mike Cleck Paving as race’s hard charger by going 23rd to 13th.

“I was happy with the cautions, because it was keeping me out of lap traffic,” said Macri. “I knew lapped traffic would open the door for someone to make a ballsy move, so I was happy to see the cautions.

“At the same time, I was nervous because I was seeing all those right rear tires blowing and we had a soft right rear on so it was definitely nerve wracking. I was happy to see it end because those last five laps the tires were vibrating pretty bad and I knew it was only a matter of time before one went.”

For Zearfoss, who blew a right rear tire heading to the scales after the race, he knew without lapped traffic he’d have to rely on a mistake if he wanted to come home first.

“It was rubber racing, but our car was good enough to make a move,” said Zearfoss. “He had clean air the entire time basically. I noticed when he got to lapped traffic, he got really tight and we were still really good.

“I tried to get him one there and the caution came out and I was just hoping another chance would come around. We never got that chance unfortunately, but we’ll take second and keep plugging away.”

Wingless Super Sportsman

Billy Brian Jr. and Joey Biasi won a pair of Wingless Super Sportsman feature events Monday evening at Port Royal Speedway.

In their first feature event, Brian Jr. came form the fourth position to win over Kevin Gutshall, Biasi, Craig Perigo and Cliff Brian Jr.

Brian Jr. moved into second on the opening circuit and to the lead using the bottom of the speedway to pass Brian Hartzell in turn one and two with 18 to go.

Eric Jennings tried multiple times over the next dozen laps to get around Brian Jr, but he couldn’t get enough momentum to pull off a pass.

A late caution with three laps remaining set up a late-race shootout, however Brian Jr. was just too good on the bottom and he cruised home to the victory by 1.097 seconds.

“I’m old enough and ran enough labor day shows in my career to know if you don’t get up off the rubber it’s going to be hard for them to pass you,” said Brian Jr. who noted he last won a limited late model race at the speedway in 1989. “I’m dating myself a bit, but we just had to our marks and we were able to do that.”

Biasi capitalized on a front row starting spot to claim the second feature, which was a rain postponement make-up from earlier this season. He took the checkered flag by a margin of 1.147 seconds over Jennings, Steve Wilbur, Steve Whary and Brian Hartzell.

Biasi fell back to third early in the race, but with 15 to go he moved back into the runner up spot when Derek Sheaffer slid up in turn one. He quickly was all over Wharry and he used a slide job entering turn one with 13 to go to take the lead for good.

A late race caution with four laps to go had Jennings all over the back end of Biasi, but with cars battling hard behind him for the runner-up spot, Biasi cruised home to the victory.

“I’m not a very good leader and I’m not good on dry and slick so when it took rubber, I was happy,” said Biasi. “I just tried to stay on the bottom and not miss my mark and this is just really cool.”

Limited Late Models

Todd Snook led every lap of the Selinsgrove Limited Late Model feature event to bring home his second career feature event in the division at the speedway. Snook also owns four feature wins previously in the Econo Late Model division.

Snook won by an advantage of 1.085 seconds over Dillan Stake, Devin Hart, Donnie Farling and Andrew Yoder.

Snook and Curt Dunn led the field to the green flag and Snook got the early jump form the bottom of the speedway.

A handful of cautions plagued the race for the first half of the event and by lap seven, Hart was all over Snook for the lead. The two made brief contact on the backstretch with seven laps to go, but the contact halted the momentum of Stake and allowed Snook to pull away.

A multi-car caution once again set up a six-lap dash for the checkered flag, but with Stake and Hart doing battle for second, Snook was able to pull away to earn his first victory of the season.

“I don’t know if all those cautions helped me or hurt me, but I was starting to get comfortable there late,” said Snook. “We were lucky enough to draw the pole and that’s probably what won it for us, but I’d rather be lucky than good.”

4 Cylinders

Eric Boozel won the 4-cylinder feature event Monday evening at Port Royal Speedway. The division started 43 cars for the 15-lap race and with five laps remaining, only 20 cars remained.

Boozel started on the pole and fell back to fifth on the opening turn. He regained his composure though and advanced to second at the completion of lap one. After multiple cautions, Boozel took the lead when Adam Campbell got sideways while leading on a lap nine restart and he went untouched the rest of the way.

“I had a good car, but Adam had a better car and that was his race to win,” said Boozel. “I was waiting on him to slip off and I could see he had an issue and I just tried not to get caught up in a wreck.”

A New Identity In Twenty-Twenty

Macri And Marks Thrill In Selinsgrove Sprint Battle Sunday, Rine Gets 112th Oval Win In ULMS Late Model Main, Jones Scores In Roadrunners

9/6/20

Selinsgrove, Pa. – Anthony Macri picked up the 30-lap National Open Qualifier for 410 sprints at Selinsgrove Speedway on Sunday night, besting Brent Marks after a battle for the lead with nine circuits to go.

Macri’s first career oval win was worth $5,000 and it earned him a guaranteed starting spot in the September 26, $20,000 to win National Open Jim Nace Memorial.

Danville’s Jeff Rine drove around Pittsburgh’s Jared Miley to pick up the 30-lap ULMS super late model feature worth $4,000.

The victory was Rine’s 112th at the track and it saw him record the Civil War Super Late Model Series title as waged between Selinsgrove and Williams Grove Speedways.

Jake Jones took the lead on a final lap restart to pick up the 12-lap roadrunner feature to close out the night.

AJ Flick had the pole flanked by Anthony Macri for the start of the 410 sprint feature.

The first lap was halted before it could be completed for a violent backstretch crash that saw Indiana’s Justin Peck and Port Royal’s Dylan Cisney flip hard.

Cisney was transported to a nearby hospital for tests and was released very early Monday morning with no injuries.

Macri soared into control over third starter Brent Marks on the first completed circuit with Flick running third.

Leader Macri entered the rear of the field on lap eight with sixth starter Brock Zearfoss now up to third and ready to challenge.

In what would turn out to be a non-stop event, the pace became dizzying by the halfway point as 10th starter Brian Brown drove up to fourth.

But it was the front trio that would settle the event while racing through traffic and with 10 laps to go, all three drivers were running under a blanket within one turn of each other, contesting for the to spot.

Marks blasted under Macri to take the lead deep in the first corner on lap 20 before sliding up in front to take Macri’s line.

Macri then dropped off of the cushion and raced back to Marks’ inside as the pair shot down the backstretch and into the third turn, still side by side.

Macri bolted low through turns three and four and was able to reclaim command back to the stripe with nine laps to go.

The leader then dropped to the low side in the first and second turns to regroup as Zearfoss raced with Marks for the runner-up spot.

With four laps to go, Zearfoss was able to secure second and start tracking down leader Macri but he failed to get quite close enough to make a bid for control.

Macri took the victory by .915 seconds with Brown riding home third followed by Marks and 17th starter Danny Dietrich, who earned the hard charger award worth $200.

Sixth through 10th went to Blane Heimbach, Freddie Rahmer, AJ Flick, Brian Montieth and TJ Stutts.

Heats went to Marks, Lucas Wolfe and Heimbach with Cisney scoring the consolation race.

Pittsburgh’s Jared Miley took the early lead from the outside of the front row in the 30-lap ULMS late model main and was leading over Jim Bernheisel with a 2.7 second advantage when the pace was slowed with seven laps in the book.

Running third for the restart, Centerville’s Max Blair took second on the restart and closed in on Miley while 10th starter Jeff Rine motored up to third.

Working the outside lane using maximum horsepower, Rine overtook Blair for second on lap 14 and then went to work on Miley to be scored the leader of lap 15.

The pace was then again slowed with 14 laps to go but Rine proved in control for the balance of the race.

Blair got by Miley for second with 10 laps to go but failed to get to Rine before the finish although he kept him honest the entire distance.

Rine’s margin of victory was .602 seconds with Miley finishing third followed by 16th starter Gregg Satterlee and Jim Bernheisel.

Sixth through 10th went to Jim Yoder, Shaun Jones, Mike Lupfer, Brett Schadel and Nathan Long.

Heats went to Blair, Kyle Knapp and Hayes Matter.

Fast time over the 26 car field was set by Blair with a lap of 18.870 seconds.

Scott Dunham Jr. led all but the final lap of the 12-lap roadrunner main.

Early in the race Will Brunson pressured Dunham for the lead but late in the event Jake Jones proved to be the challenger.

Jones got by Brunson and into second with two laps to go but then actually had to take the lead three times before he could be scored the official pacesetter as it took three different attempts to get the final lap recorded.

The victory was Jones’ fourth of the year at the track.

Brunson ended up second followed by Nathan Romig, Tom Brunson and Jimmy Kessler.

Heats went to Will Brunson and Dunham.

Mason Zeigler Earns 16th Annual Butch Renninger Victory for Super Late Models During 166th Annual Juniata County Fair Kick-Off

 

Brent Marks, Jared Fulkroad and Gregg Satterlee Claim Victories as Well

 

By- Justin Snyder

 

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Pa. (Sept. 5, 2020) Mason Zeigler held off Trevor Feathers and Gregg Satterlee to pick up the win in the 16th Annual Butch Renninger Memorial featuring the ULMS Super Late Models by a margin of 1.415 seconds.

 

The win was worth $5333 and was Zeigler's third career triumph at the Port Royal Speedway.

 

"We were good early on and I just gave it all I had out there to win this race," said Zeigler. "I never got to meet Butch, but I know he meant a lot to this place and was a great guy and it's an honor to be standing here carrying on that legacy."

 

Zeigler and Feathers led the field to the green flag for the 33-lap A-main and Zeigler jumped out to the early lead. However, it was third-place starter Satterlee and sixth-place starter Michael Norris on the move as the duo moved into second and third respectively at the completion of lap one.

 

Satterlee peaked under the leader entering turn three and pulled alongside of Zeigler coming to the line, but couldn’t make the pass. However, he was able to use that momentum to get under Zeigler in turn's one and two and pulled ahead down the backstretch to lead lap two.

 

By lap six Satterlee held a commanding lead in lap traffic, while Zeigler and Norris were battling side by side to track him down.

 

By lap 13 the two cars were closing rapidly and three laps later all three were nose to tail coming to the flag stand. Zeigler used the bottom of the speedway in one and two to regain the lead. Satterlee would fall back to third three laps later, but he put his car in overdrive and began marching back towards the front.

 

With ten laps remaining, Zeigler came off the top of the speedway and dove to the bottom of a lap car in turn three, allowing Satterlee to close to his bumper exiting turn four. Three laps later, Satterlee was all over Zeigler's bumper and Feathers had found something up top and regrouped to move back into third.

 

However the caution would fly for a slowing car on the backstretch. With the series utilizing Delaware restarts, Zeigler got a great jump on the field at the return to green-flag action and blasted out to a near 1.0 second advantage. Feathers capitalized on getting to start on the high-side and moved into second.

 

However Zeigler would not be denied and he took the checkered flag convincingly over Feathers, Satterlee, Norris and Kyle Lee.

 

"I would've have liked to have been a little better earlier, but ultimately we were good when we needed to be and capitalized on clean air," said Zeigler. "It’s been a pretty good weekend so far for us and hopefully this leads to even more wins."

 

For Feathers, he wasn't good enough early on and knew it be tough to catch Zeigler in clean air.

 

"Last time we had this car here we finished third, but we hadn't used it in a while and really had no notes to work off of coming in tonight," said Feathers. "We were pretty good there late and I hated to see that caution because who knows what we could've done in lap traffic. But second is not a bad showing at all."

 

Heat races earlier in the night paid $333 courtesy of Ted Reitz, while second place finishers paid $50 courtesy of David Bower. There was also a $133 hard luck award for the first non-qualifier courtesy of Pellman Trade and Gullwing Aviation and Reitz offered up $33 to the B-Main winner. Gene Knaub earned the $333 hard charger award courtesy of Brown's Automotive. Norris set quick time earlier in the night and earned $466 courtesy of Barron's Racing Engines and Del Shank.

 

There was a second ULMS Late Model feature  event that was a make-up feature from earlier this season and Gregg Satterlee led all 25 laps from the pole to earn the victory for his fifth Port Royal Speedway victory of the season.

 

Satterlee bested Michael Norris, Mason Zeigler, Max Blair and Andy Huas. The win was worth $3000 and came by an advantage of 1.102 seconds.

 

"I knew after that first feature that I'd need to be really aggressive in lap traffic as I felt being patient cost us a bit in the first one," said Satterlee. "It's always great to be in victory lane and two podiums on one night is pretty good."

Sprint Cars

 

Brent Marks held off a hard charging Anthony Macri and Lance Dewease to pick up his second win of the season during the 166th Annual Juniata County Fair opener at Port Royal Speedway.

 

The win was worth $4000 and required a little luck. Macri passed Marks in lap traffic coming to the flagstand, only for the pass to be negated as the caution flag waved before the lap could be completed.

 

"We were pretty fortunate to get that caution just in time or I don’t know if we'd have been able to get Anthony back," said Marks. "That allowed us to get back in clean air and out there I felt like we had the best car and that definitely helped us."

 

Western Pa. invader Sye Lynch and Justin Whittall led the field to the green flag and Whittall got the early jump on the field to lead lap one. George Hobaugh settled into second, while Ryan Smith moved into the third spot as well.

 

By lap five, Whittall was cruising as he held a nearly 1.1 second advantage over the field, but Marks, who started ninth, was coming fast. He got by Smith exiting turn four on lap six and three laps later he used a run coming off the top of the speedway exiting turn two to get by Hobaugh for second.

 

One lap later Dewease followed suit by taking the third spot and with Whittall in heavy lap traffic, Marks was gaining fast and he made his move for the lead with a slider in turn's three and four to take the top spot with 11 to go. 

 

"I knew we had to get to the front as quick as possible as those guys behind me were coming fast as well," said Marks. "Sometimes running second is better then running out front, but I knew with how it's been here this year and I knew I wanted the field chasing me."

 

Meanwhile, Anthony Macri was making his presence known as he screamed around the top of turn's one and two to move into the third spot. One lap later he disposed of Whittall for the runner up position and he brought Dewease along as well.

 

Macri was all over Marks on lap 17 and the two swapped positions in turn's three and four. Marks led by  mere inches the following circuit, while Dewease was lurking on the bottom waiting for either driver to make a mistake. 

 

With Macri running the top, Marks positioned firmly in the middle and Dewease on the bottom, the three drivers raced to the start/finish line the following lap and it appeared Macri had the momentum as he inched ahead coming to the line, but the caution flew just in the nick of time when Logan Wagner got into the inside gaurdrail on the backstretch to negate the pass.

 

"It was a hard to know where to go as I know how good Lance is on the bottom and Anthony was great up top, so I tried to go to the bottom there  exiting four to try and get a run on Macri," said Marks. "Ultimately he beat me off the corner, but luckily that caution came out and it definitely saved me."

 

With clean air ahead of him, Marks blasted out to the lead at the return to green-flag racing and he held a nearly 1.5 second advantage with five laps remaining. However the red flag flew on lap 22 for a multi-car incident in which Tyler Reeser needed to be transported to the hospital. He was alert and is currently being treated for multiple injuries.

 

The final restart was all Marks and he again blasted out to a nearly 1.2 second lead and he took the checkered flag by a 1.173 advantage over Macri, Dewease, Mike Wagner and Whittall.

 

"I just felt really comfortable in clean air and I think we had a great car all race long," said Marks. "I was trying to do some different stuff on the restarts to keep them guessing and it seemed to work tonight."

 

For Macri, he knew his best opportunity was in lap traffic and he felt like one may have gotten away from him with that late caution.

 

"We got behind at the start and let Brent and Lance get by us and I started driving harder than I really should have," said Macri. "That caution came out about two seconds too early and I knew we weren't going to catch Brent in clean air. We'll take what we got and move onto the next one."

 

Jeff Halligan, Smith, Brian Brown, Blane Heimbach and AJ Flick rounded out the top ten. Heimbach was the night's hard charger award winner courtesy of Valley Supply.

Limited Late Models

 

Jared Fulkroad bested Devin Hart and Devin Weyandt to pick up the Selinsgrove Ford Limited Late Model portion of the 16th Annual Butch Renninger Memorial to claim his first career victory at the Port Royal Speedway.

 

The win was worth $1333 and came after a late race pass with nine laps to go.

 

"My tires really starting coming in there late and I just committed to the bottom and figured if they were going to get around me, it need to be up top," said Fulkroad. "The track was awesome and we had an awesome car and I can’t thank everyone enough for getting me here."

 

It was a pair of 88's on the front row as Weyandt and Madeline Miller led the field to the green flag with Weyandt getting the early jump. Fulkroad was on the move early, moving from third to second on the opening lap as well.

 

He tried a slider in turn's one and two to take the lead on lap two, but couldn't make it stick. However, he used the momentum to pull under Weyandt exiting turn four and led lap two by a nose. Weyandt wouldn’t go away though and he used the outside of the track to pullback ahead the following circuit to lead lap three.

 

With ten laps to go, Fulkroad was all over Weyandt and using the bottom of the speedway he pulled ahead of him the following lap to lead lap 16.

 

Using the extreme high side of the track, sixth-place starter Matt Cochran suddenly entered the picture and he moved to fourth with seven laps to go and second with five to go. With Fulkroad struggling in lap traffic, Cochran pulled to his tail. 

 

However, he wasn't able to capitalize and Fulkroad pulled away to take the checkered flag. Hart made a last lap move form fourth to second to finish in the runner-up spot followed by Weyandt, Todd Snook and Cochran.

 

"This is just really cool and I don’t really know what to say," said Fulkroad. "I just have to thank my family and sponsors for sticking by me and this will always be a special night."

 

For Hart, who also earned the hard charger award, it was just an example of too little, too late.

 

"We were pretty good there, but it just took us too long to get to second," said Hart. "One of these years we'll end up in victory lane, but tonight we'll just be happy with second."

 

Heat winners earned $100 earlier in the night courtesy of Garman Concrete & Construction, while second earned $33 courtesy of Bill and Kay Weimer. Gullwing Aviation presented a $133 hard luck award, while Zimmerman Truck Repair offered up a $233 hard charger award. Finally Pellman Trade paid $33 to the highest finishing Juniata County driver.

Saturday, September 19 (7:00pm) ALL STAR CIRCUIT OF CHAMPIONS | $20,000 to WIN DIRT CLASSIC VII for 410 Sprints (TT) [rain date: Sun, Sept. 20]

Abbottstown, PA (September 5, 2020) – Danny Dietrich inked his name in Lincoln history with a sweep of the Twin 20 features during the Bob Leiby Memorial on Saturday night. The only other driver to accomplish this feat in Lincoln history was Steve Smith in 1992. It had been eight years since Twin 20 features were on the card at Lincoln. Brian Montieth and Dietrich split the last Twin 20 event held in 2012.

Brie Hershey and Brett Michalski made up the front row for the night’s first Twin 20 feature.

Michalski led the field into turn 1 with Hershey, Alan Krimes, Glenndon Forsythe and Adam Wilt making up the top five.

Wilt got by Forsythe for fourth, but the caution came out on lap 1 before the pass was official. The yellow was for Brie Hershey who go turned around in turns 3 and 4. Hershey rejoined the field.

Michalski led Krimes, Forsythe, Wilt and Brian Montieth to the cone for the single-file restart.

Michalski rolled through the top of turns 1 and 2 to maintain the lead on the restart as a three-car battle for third between Forsythe, Wilt and Montieth waged behind him.

The second caution of the race came on lap 4 when Hershey tried to exit the track out of turn 2 but stopped on the ramp.

Krimes went to the bottom of turn 1 on the restart to challenge Michalski for the lead but Michalski held on to the top spot.

Matt Campbell was working on Tim Glatfelter for fifth and took the position coming out of turn 2 on lap 5.

Montieth had caught Wilt and was on his bumper for third.

As the halfway point approached Michalski was closing in on lapped traffic. Krimes reeled in the leader as they worked through heavy lapped traffic.

Wilt moved into second on lap 13. As Michalski worked his way through lapped traffic, he was holding off Wilt, Montieth and Danny Dietrich as they all challenged him for the lead.

Wilt dove into turn 3 to try and take the lead and made contact with the leader Michalski as he attempted a slide job. Michalksi never stopped as Wilt sat in turn 2 backed into the outside wall to bring out the caution on lap 16.

Michalski maintained the lead as no cars had passed the flag stand before the yellow flag came out.

Michalski paced the field ahead of Montieth, Dietrich, Campbell and Krimes for the restart.

Michalski went high and Montieth went low going into turn 1. The bottom served Montieth well as he took the lead coming out of turn 2. Dietrich followed and took second coming out of turn 4.

The yellow flag flew on lap 18 for Brandon Rahmer who got spun around in turn 4.

With two laps to go Montieth led Dietrich, Campbell, Michalski and Krimes on the restart.

Dietrich drove to the top of turn 1 on the restart and took the lead coming out of turn 2 and held off Monteith down the back stretch.

The first Twin 20 of the night went to Dietrich who crossed the line 1.308 seconds ahead of Montieth. Campbell finished third and Krimes was fourth. Jim Siegel completed the top five.

After winning the first Twin 20 feature after starting 14th, Dietrich pulled the 8 pill for the inversion. The lined up Tim Glatfelter on the pole and Dietrich eighth for the start of the second feature.

Glatfelter led the field into turn 1 on the start with Justin Peck using the top to settle into second.

Michalski and Siegel battled for third with Siegel taking the spot on lap 2.

After Siegel got by Michalski, he had to fend off Dietrich and Montieth as they both tried to get into the top five. Dietrich took fifth coming out of turn 2 on lap 5. Montieth followed on the next lap, taking sixth from Michalski.

Lapped traffic came into play for Glatfelter on lap 6.

The caution flag flew on lap 7 for Glenndon Forsythe who fell off the pace and headed to the pits.

Glatfelter led Peck, Siegel, Campbell and Dietrich on the restart. Peck used the top of the turns on the restart as Glatfelter rolled through the bottom of turns 1 and 2.

Peck tried a slider on Glatfelter for the lead, but it didn’t stick.

Dietrich and Campbell drag raced down the back stretch for fourth with Dietrich taking the spot. Once again Montieth followed getting by Campbell as well.

The yellow came out again on lap 9 when Brandon Rahmer got out of sorts in turns 1 and 2.

Both Glatfelter and Peck went to the top on the restart allowing Glatfelter to pull away. Siegel tried to slide Peck for second but to no avail. Dietrich closed in and was up beside Siegel for third and took the spot on lap 11.

Again, Montieth followed Dietrich and took fourth after getting by Siegel. Montieth got high in turns 1 and 2 on the next lap allowing Siegel to take the spot back.

Dietrich was searching the track to try and make up some ground on the leaders.

Glatfelter entered lapped traffic with five laps to go. As the leaders worked their way through lapped traffic you could throw a blanket over the top three.

Dietrich and Peck were side by side at the line with two to go. Peck had the advantage at the line, but Dietrich took the spot going into turn 1.

Dietrich didn’t have much time to track down Glatfelter, but he caught the leader on the last lap and threw a slider in turn 4 winning the second Twin 20 feature in exciting fashion.

Glatfelter held on to finish second and Peck crossed the line third. Siegel finished fourth and Matt Campbell completed the top five.

With his sweep of both features, Dietrich earned a $750 Clean Sweep Bonus. $500 of the bonus was from Brooks Graphix and the Leiby family with Mamma’s Pizza of Wellsville putting up the additional $250.

Sprint car heat race winners were Scott Fisher, Brie Hershey and Brett Michalksi.

Jaiden Reyna Wins in Second Career Start on Dirt

Jaiden Reyna made the trip to Pennsylvania from North Carolina to field one of Joe Ryan Osborne’s cars at Lincoln on Saturday night. Reyna has been impressive on asphalt this year in the Young Lions division. Saturday was only Reyna’s second start on dirt in a Legend. The young gun was impressive all night and capped off his trip north with a victory.

Billy Workman Jr. drove by Chris Transeau and Reyna from third to take the lead on the start. The caution came out on lap 1 for Richie Dobson who got spun around coming out of turn 4.

Transeau and Reyna were side by side for second at the line on lap 2. Nikita Johnson joined the battle as Workman started pulling away from the rest of the field.

The yellow flag flew again on lap 7 when Taylor Watson came to a stop in turn 2.

Workman led Transeau, Reyna, Johnson and Seth Kearchner to the cone for the single-file restart.

Transeau stuck with Workman on the restart but the caution came out again on lap 8 when Ben Goldsmith spun out on the back stretch.

Reyna and Johnson were door to door at the line for third with Reyna holding the spot. Travis McClelland and Travis Perry were side by side behind Kearchner with both drivers challenging Kearchner for fifth.

Transeau and Reyna raced side by side on lap 11 for second. Transeau held the spot by a nose at the line on lap 12.

Reyna took the second spot using the top side of the track coming out of turn 2. Johnson followed also getting by Transeau. Transeau didn’t go quietly and took the spot back. Johnson stuck around and took third back from Transeau as Reyna caught Workman at the front of the field.

The caution came out on lap 15 as Workman and Reyna made contact as they battled for the lead. Workman ended up backwards in turn 3 as Reyna drove away from the incident without coming to a stop.

After inheriting the lead, Reyna led Johnson, Transeau, Kearchner and McClelland on the restart.

Johnson got his nose under Reyna as they drag raced down the back stretch side by side. Reyna held the lead by a nose on lap 16. The two continued to battle and Reyna’s advantage was even smaller on lap 17 at the line.

The battle at the front of the field allowed Transeau to move within striking distance making it a three way battle for the top spot.

Transeau got his nose under Johnson in an attempt to take second but couldn’t hold the advantage as they crossed the line as the laps wound down.

Reyna got to the checkered flag .743 seconds ahead of Johnson. Transeau held on to finish third with Kearchner crossing the line fourth. McClelland completed the top five.

In addition to winning the feature, Reyna picked up a $50 bonus from MRD Maintenance Solutions for having the fastest lap in the feature. Reyna had a lap time of 20.157 seconds.

Rahmer And Newlin Win On Wild Night At Williams Grove

9/4/20

Mechanicsburg – Freddie Rahmer scored his second 410 sprint car win on the season at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night in the Bob Stewart Tribute race, worth $5,012 to win.

Rahmer got the win by bolting past race-long leader Anthony Macri with just over two laps to go in the 25-lap main event.

In the 358 sprint main, Zach Newlin took his first ever win at the track in the division.

Anthony Macri started on the pole of the 410 sprint main flanked by Lucas Wolfe and when the green flag came out, fourth starter Brian Montieth flipped outside the first corner after losing a front wheel, causing an immediate red flag.

Only two laps were then recorded before a yellow flag bunched the field with Marcri leading Wolfe.

Third starter Rahmer got around Wolfe on the restart just before another red flag, this time for a turn one flip by Trenton Sheaffer.

Macri restarted with the lead over Rahmer and was still ahead when another yellow flag slowed the pace with just seven laps completed, this time for a slowed Danny Dietrich who had just taken third from Wolfe.

Yet another yellow flag regrouped the field on lap 11 but the final 14 circuits would end up going non-stop with Rahmer slowly but surely running down leader Macri.

Brent Marks would take third from Wolfe twice on laps 13 and 14 before finally making the move stick and entering the fray for the win before the finish.

Leader Macri entered traffic with seven laps to go but his undoing began on lap 22 when he skipped over the cushion in turn one as he set the car into the corner.

This allowed Rahmer to close the remaining distance between himself and Macri and when Macri again slipped up over the next time around, Rahmer was there to capitalize.

Rahmer followed Macri down the backchute as the pair headed for the two-to-go sign and then he swooped across the inside of the third and fourth turns to come up off of the corner alongside the leader.

A little right rear to left front contact in the blink of an eye found Macri edged out back to the line and Rahmer heading for the win.

However the front trio seemed to be faltering over the final two laps with no one able to get away from one another while sliding around on the track.

Marks did get Macri on the final circuit and was all over Rahmer to the finish, crossing the line just. .268 seconds behind at the checkers.

Macri was relegated to third followed by Wolfe and TJ Stutts.

Sixth through 10th went to Matt Campbell, Brian Brown, Danny Dietrich, Brock Zearfoss and Jeff Halligan.

Heats went to Macri, Stutts and Wolfe.

Rahmer set quick time over the field with a lap of 16.569 seconds.

The start of the 358 sprint main was immediately halted when Doug Hammaker hopped a right rear as the green fell before careening hard into the outside fence before flipping back into traffic as the field raced onto the frontstretch.

Hammaker and Kyle Denmyer made hard contact along with four other cars although there were no injuries.

Matt Findley would take the lead when action got going only to be stopped on lap four when Nat Tuckey flipped down the frontchute past the flagstand and again there were no injuries.

Another red flag ensued on the restart for a stopped Jacob Galloway.

Lap seven saw two cars connect in the first turn again hampering the pace.

Fourth starter Zach Newlin had taken second on lap six and on the lap seven restart he was working on Findley for the lead.

With his car working perfectly down low in the second corner, Newlin drove past Findley for control with 11 laps to go to head to the victory.

Derek Locke took second with six laps to go but failed to close in on the leader.

Findley rode home third followed by Chris Arnold and Dylan Norris.

Heats went to Zachary Cool, Findley, Arnold and Newlin with Kevin Nouse scoring the consolation race.

58th Annual Champion Racing Oil Williams Grove National Open Will Pay $75K To Win

East’s Premiere Sprint Car Event Boasts Growing Purse For Third Year In A Row!

Continued Biggest Payday In History Of Track And East Up For Grabs October 3

9/4/20

Mechanicsburg – The biggest and richest sprint car race in the East and in the history of Williams Grove Speedway just got bigger and even richer!

Speedway officials announced Friday night that the upcoming Williams Grove Speedway 58th annual National Open on October 3 will post $75,000 to the winner, up from 65K just one year ago.

The two-day World of Outlaws stand at Williams Grove Speedway for the Champion Racing Oil National Open is slated for October 2 and 3 with Friday’s 30-lap main paying $10,000 to win while Saturday’s 40-lap feature offers up the whopping 75K.

Just like in 2019, the 2020 Champion Racing Oil National Open at Williams Grove continues to be the biggest cash payday ever in the history of the oval and in the East, at $75,000.

And this season, the widely acclaimed event will indeed go down in history as the richest one-day event and biggest payday in sprint car racing across the nation, with Saturday’s one-event total purse alone eclipsing $135,000!

The premiere sprint car contest at the track since it began in 1963, the Williams Grove National Open first paid $25,000 to win in 2001 before jumping to $30,000 in 2002 and then to a monumental $50,000 in 2006.

The 2020 increase to the Champion Racing Oil National Open winner marks the third year in a row that Williams Grove Speedway has ramped up the prestigious event.

David Gravel pocketed $50,000 for the win in 2017 followed by $56,00 that went to winner Lance Dewease in 2018.

Last year’s winner, Brent Marks of Myerstown, took home $65,000 for the victory.

Save for two years when rains forced postponement, the World of Outlaws has sanctioned the prestigious Open every year since 1989.

The race went to 40 laps in 1993 with distances set at 50, 75, 100 and 150 laps at times since the event’s inception.

Hastings’ Michigan driver Gordon Johncock won the inaugural race.

Once again Monteith used the top in turns 1 and 2 to gain on Dietrich but couldn't make the pass. After getting by Trout, Rahmer pulled a slide job on Monteith for third but it didn’t stick. Aaron Reutzel entered the battle for third as the leaders entered lapped traffic on lap 11.

Dietrich used lapped traffic to close in on Bayston. Montieth also took advantage of lapped traffic to track down Dietrich.

Reutzel got by Rahmer for third on lap 15. Lap 16 saw Dietrich right on Bayston’s bumper.

The top two were side by side for the lead at the line on lap 20. Zeb Wise got sideways coming out of turn 2 and collected Dietrich. Danny pulled a 360 spin and avoided coming to a stop despite the contact with Wise. Per All Star rules Dietrich had to tag the rear, as any car pulling a 360 is subject to the rule.

The top five for the restart were Bayston, Reutzel, Monteith, Rahmer and Trout. Montieth got under Reutzel to try and take second on the restart but Reutzel held the spot.

Tim Wagaman was on the move and got by Trout to enter the top 5. Two laps later he got by Rahmer coming out of turn 2 for fourth.

While the leaders maneuvered through lapped traffic Monteith was within striking distance of Reutzel once again for second.

The final caution of the race came on lap 33 when both Rahmer and Brent Marks had flat tires. Marks was running fifth after working through the field from his eighteenth starting spot. Rahmer was running sixth when the caution flag flew.

Reutzel, Montieth, Wagaman and Trout lined up behind Bayston for the green, white, checkered restart.

Reutzel went to the bottom of turns 1 and 2 to try and get by Bayston but Bayston was checked out.

Bayston took the checkered flag 1.005 seconds ahead of Reutzel for the Kramer Klash victory. Montieth held on to third. Wagaman finished fifth and Cory Eliason snuck into the top on the restart. After restarting at the rear of the field after his 360 field, Dietrich drove back for a sixth place finish.

Sprint car heat race winners were Troy Wagaman Jr, Tim Wagaman, Freddie Rahmer and Spencer Bayston.

Jeremy Ott Wires the Field for Legend Win

Dan Harrison and Jeremy Ott shared the front row for the 20-lap Central PA Legends feature. Ott took the lead going into turn 1 and Bill Diehl moved into second. As Harrison fell to fifth Alex Schmeidel moved into third.

Diehl battled Ott for the lead as Travis McClelland got by Schmeidel for third on lap three.

Diehl was trying to use the bottom to gain on Ott when the caution came out on lap 5 for Logan Carbaugh.

Ott led Diehl, McClelland, Schmeidel, and Mike Racine to the cone for the single file restart.

Diehl kept the pressure on Ott for the lead but the caution came out on the restart when Chris Transeau spun in turn 2.

Ben Goldsmith stopped in turn 4 bringing out another caution on lap 7.

Seth Kearchner was working hard on Racine to get in to the top 5 when another caution came on lap 10. Ron Little spun and came to a stop in turn 4.

Lincoln Kearchner was also a victim of turn 4 on lap 11 brining out the yellow flag.

Racine was going after Schmeidel for fourth and got the spot by a nose on lap 15. After the impressive battle Racine got out of shape going down the back stretch and fell back to sixth. Racine’s misfortune allowed Seth Kearchner to enter the top five.

Scott Spidle and Brandon Reiblich brought out the yellow flag on lap 18.

Ott paced the field ahead of Diehl, McClelland, Schmeidel and Kearchner for the restart. The caution came out on the restart for Reiblich, Spidle and Eric Hurst when they piled up going into turn 3.

Diehl took one last look to the inside of Ott after the green flag flew for the green, white, checkered finish. Ott held a half a car length advantage over Diehl at the line with the checkered flag in the air. McClelland crossed the line third. Schmeidel held on to fourth and Kearchner completed the top five.

Lance Dewease Scores Selinsgrove 5K Jack Gunn Memorial Saturday, Gives Owner Kreitz First Trip Back To Oval Winner’s Circle In 27 Years

Yoder and Lawton share stock car wins

8/29/20

Selinsgrove, Pa. – Lance Dewease of Fayetteville drove to victory in the 30-lap Jack Gunn Memorial for 410 sprint cars at Selinsgrove Speedway on Saturday night, scoring the $5,000 payday aboard the Don Kreitz Jr.-owned No. 69K for the 15th win of his career at the oval.

In the 20-lap limited late model main, Andrew Yoder of Middleburg scored for the third time this season at the track to pick up $1,200 for the win that was also his 10th overall of the season.

And in the roadrunner feature, Curtis Lawton raced with Jake Jones for the race right down to the final turn to get the win in the win.

Dewease started on the pole of the Jack Gunn Memorial for sprint cars flanked by Dylan Cisney and raced to stay ahead of Cisney as the pair jetted into the first turn when action began.

Dewease entered the rear of the field on the sixth tour and watched as Cisney darted to his inside as the pair rode into turn one.

However the leader was able to fend off the challenge and sling back around to hold command onto the backchute just before the first caution period of the race occurred on the same lap.

On the restart, Anthony Macri blasted under Cisney for second only to see Cisney sling around and reclaim the spot not once, but twice as the pair executed the same moves again the next time around.

The race was then again slowed with nine laps completed for a spin, finding Cisney, Macri, Brock Zearfoss and Mark Smith lined up for the new green.

Dewease avoided a challenge on the restart as Macri again went after Cisney only this time Macri proved successful, securing second on lap 11.

Jay Galloway then slowed with 17 laps to go, again bunching the field.

Dewease kept Macri at bay as the race went through the mid-stages and again entered traffic with six laps to go.

A final yellow flag slowed the pace with four laps to go only to see Dewease pull out to a 3.359 second advantage at the finish over Macri.

The checkered flag was Dewease’s first at the track since 2014 and it marked car owner Don Kreitz’s first trip to victory lane at the track in 27 years when he last took an oval win albeit as a driver.

Cisney was third followed by Zearfoss and Jeff Halligan.

Sixth through 10th went to TJ Stutts, Lucas Wolfe, Mark Smith, Justin Whittal and Kyle Reinhardt.

Heats went to Cisney and Macri.

Andrew Yoder was chased by Jared Fulkroad all through the limited late model main but Yoder proved flawless in the event.

For the last half of the race, the machines of Joe Lusk, Jim Yoder and Danny Snyder staged a three-way race for fourth with Yoder holding the spot at times.

In the end as Andrew Yoder took the win by .695 seconds over Fulkroad, Lusk and Jim Yoder rode home fourth and fifth with Mike Smith crossing the line in third.

Sixth through 10th went to Danny Snyder, Todd Snook, JR Toner, Kevin Probst and Matt Murphy.

Heats went to Andrew Yodeer, Toner and Harold Ranck.

Scott Dunham Jr. led the first two laps of the roadrunner main before fifth starter Curtis Lawton got control and began a battle with Jake Jones.

Jones went out front on lap five and then was pressured by Lawton the rest of the distance for the win.

The duo raced side by side for lap 11 and crossed the start/finish line in a dead heat for control.

Lawton then stuck inside Jones through the first turn and down the backstretch before clawing his way out front as the pair traversed the fourth corner.

Lawton then surged to the line to steal the win away from Jones.

Daren Rice finished third followed by Keith Bissinger and Dunham.

Heats went to Dunham and Rice.

DANNY “DOUBLE D” DIETRICH STEALS THUNDER CUP IN DRAMATIC FASHION; VONDOHREN CLAIMS MODIFIED WIN AT GRANDVIEW THUNDER THURSDAY

BECHTELSVILLE, PA – August 27, 2020 – A wild finish and wet weather highlighted a thrilling night of racing at Grandview Speedway, on Thursday, for the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series Thunder Cup presented by Levan Machine & Truck Equipment. Grandview Speedway and Thunder on the Hill pull off another upset, beating Mother Nature, her rain, thunder and lightning to complete the double header event by 11 PM. And the show was a thriller on an exceptionally well prepared and fast track. A field of twenty-five sprint cars and thirty-three modifieds were in the pits for the 139th Thunder on the Hill Racing Series event at Grandview.

In dramatic fashion, Danny Dietrich scored the Ollie’s All Star Circuit of Champions 410 Sprint Car victory, and Craig VonDohren won the NASCAR 358 Modified portion of the event.

Dietrich, of Gettyburg, PA, found himself in second place when the white flag waved, with Aaron Reutzel in the lead and on his way to a third-consecutive All Star win at Grandview Speedway. The leaders swapped the top spot on lap 20 of the feature with Reutzel regaining the lead from Dietrich. But on the final lap, with slower traffic ahead, the leaders made contract entering turn one. Dietrich took the lead and the contact sent Reutzel spinning in turn one displaying the yellow flag.

“There’s not really a lot to say,” Dietrich explained about the altercation during Victory Lane ceremonies. “Our car was good, and I wanted to win.”

A pair of previous winners led the field to the green flag with Reutzel starting on the pole of the 35-lap Thunder Cup A -Main and Freddie Rahmer starting in the second position.

At the drop of the green flag, Reutzel quickly darted to the lead and held command of the field for the first ten circuits while Dietrich, Rahmer, and Christopher Bell dueled for second spot behind him. Dietrich charged inside Rahmer for second, with Bell muscling his way around Rahmer into third just two laps later.

Dietrich and Bell didn’t let Reutzel out of their sights. As the No. 48 and the No. 39 rand down Reutzel’s No. 87, and waited to strike. With Bell on his tail, Dietrich charged outside Reutzel taking the top position on lap 20.

Traffic continued to be an obstacle for the leaders, with Reutzel maneuvering back into the lead just four circuits later.

Poised and waiting for the right opportunity, Dietrich hunted down Reutzel waiting for the All Star Series Point leader to make a mistake.

The white flag flew, indicating the final trip around the one-third-mile raceway. Heavy-footed, Dietrich motored into turn 1, making contact with Reutzel who spun. The caution left Reutzel to restart in the 20th position.

Dietrich would roll on through a green, white, checkered finish to claim the Thunder Cup win and the $5,000 prize money. Christopher Bell finished in second position, Freddie Rahmer in the third position, James McFadden in fourth, and Paul McMahan in fifth.

In the NASCAR 358 Modified main event, Boyertown, PA’s Craig VonDohren battled with Reading, PA’s Doug Manmiller to win the 30 lap, $3,000 to win main event.

Justin Grim started second and led the early stages of the event before Manmiller took control on the third circuit, with VonDohren following into the second position.

VonDohren claimed the top spot on the 6th lap dueling with Manmiller side-by-side.

In the end, VonDohren would sail on to victory, his seventh career Thunder on the Hill win. Manmiller would settle for second position, Brett Kressley finished in third, Billy Pauch, Jr. in fourth, and Mike Gular finishing in the fifth spot.

A brief rain shower slowed the action during NASCAR 358 Modified qualifying. The track crew worked vigorously to maintain control of the one-third-mile clay oval, and the storm only saw a 30-minute delay. An exercise too often displayed at the Thunder on the Hill events.

Special thanks to the fans and race teams who once again supported all the efforts and displayed outstanding cooperation to get this show completed. We also thank Levan Machine and Truck Equipment of Fleetwood, PA for their support and efforts. It was truly a big win in getting this show completed.

Five Different Drivers Claim Feature Victories During Bobby Rahal Toyota of Lewistown “Five Times The Fun, One Hot Night”

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway-PORT ROYAL, Penn. (August 23, 2020)- Five different drivers picked up feature wins Saturday night as part of the Bobby Rahal Toyota Lexus of Lewistown ‘Five Times the Fun, One Hot Night’.

With rain foiling racing plans throughout much of August and limited dates available for make-ups, the Speedway took on the daunting task of holding five features for three divisions in one night.

Anthony Macri kicked off the evening by picking up his fifth Port Royal Speedway feature win of 2020 during the 14th Annual Living Legends Dream Race make-up feature from early August. Macri bested track points leader Logan Wagner and Lance Dewease by 1.855 seconds to claim the checkered flag and the $10,000 prize.

Logan Wagner and Brock Zearfoss led the field to the green flag, with Wagner getting the early jump and leading lap one. Dewease followed suit into second in the opening turn, while Macri went from sixth to fourth on the opening circuit.

Two laps later Macri pulled under Zearfoss exiting turn two to move into third, but his momentum was halted when fifth-place starter Tyler Bear came to a stop on the backstretch with a small fire the following lap.

Wagner held off a slide job attempt by Dewease on the restart, which allowed Macri to gain momentum on Dewease. He traded sliders with Dewease the following lap, but Dewease held off the charge.

Three laps later the red flag flew when Paulie Colagiovanni got upside down exiting turn two and collected Kody Lehman and Drew Ritchey.

Wagner once again held off a slide-job attempt from Dewease on the restart, but this time Macri capitalized and after a brief swap of positions, claimed the runner-up spot at the flag stand on lap 11. Over the next four laps, Macri cut Wagner’s lead in half and with the leader struggling in lap traffic, he was heavy in pursuit on lap 16.

That same lap, Wagner made contact with the lap car of Dustin Baney entering turn three and Macri closed within .02 seconds. He tried a slide job in turn’s one and two on lap 18, but Wagner pulled away down the backstretch. But lap traffic once again proved to be the X-Factor when Wagner followed the car of Lehman into turn 1, allowing Macri to slide under him to take the lead.

Two laps later the final caution of the race flew when Steve Buckwalter slowed in turn four with a flat tire. Jared Eshs also came to a stop on the Speedway while under yellow. Both cars would rejoin the field.

However, with clean air at his expense, Macri pulled away on the restart. By lap 25 he held a 2.5 second advantage and he would go onto claim the checkered flag without any challenge. Wagner held on for second with Dewease, Brent Marks and Zearfoss making up the top five. Tyler Reeser earned the $350 hard charger award.

“It feels good to get finally get a win as we have been in a bit of a slump here lately,” said Macri. “We destroyed a car out at Knoxville and junked some stuff last night so hopefully this $10,000 check helps to pay some bills.”

Wagner made up for the disappointment as he took the checkered flag in the second Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Car event of the night for his first win of the 2020 racing season. Wagner held off Dylan Cisney and his father Mike Wagner to claim the $4000 checkered flag in what was a makeup from the August 15th program.

Wagner and Cisney led the field to the green with Wagner once again jumping out to the point. Setting a torrid pace, Wagner hit lap traffic on lap seven and was furiously weaving in and out of lap traffic determined not to let this one slips away. By lap eight Wagner’s lead was around 1.4 seconds, but with five to go he was nearly 2.0 seconds ahead.

With two laps remaining, Cisney was closing in on Wagner, but with the feature only being 20 laps in distance, Cisney ran out of time as Wagner took the checkered flag by .850 seconds.

Cisney, Mike Wagner, Lucas Wolfe and Blane Heimback made up the top five. TJ Stutts went from 19th to s10th to earn a $600 hard charger award courtesy of Mike Cleck Paving and Valley Supply.

“We’ve been really close this year and it’s nice to finally park this Zemco Sprint Car in victory lane,” said Wagner. “I wish we were talking about the first one and $10,000, but we’ll take it and keep building toward the end of the season.”

Blane Heimbach capped off a consistent night by picking up the final Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Car night for his first Port Royal Speedway victory of the season. Heimbach bested Logan Wagner and Ryan Taylor to claim 14th career victory at the Juniata County oval.

Jeff Miller and Taylor led the field to the green flag with Taylor jumping out to the early lead. By lap five Taylor held a 3.0 second advantage over Heimbach, who had moved into the runner up spot one lap prior form his third starting position.

With 10 laps to go, Heimbach was cutting into the advantage and by lap 13 he was on the tail tank of Taylor. Taylor, who had been running the top of the speedway, tried to protect the bottom, but Heimbach was able his muscle his way inside entering turn 1 and he exited turn two with the lead on lap 14.

Meanwhile Logan Wagner, who started eighth, had moved up to the third position and with three to go he moved into second. He tried to make a last-ditch effort to catch Heimbach but got bottled up in lap traffic on the white flag lap which allowed Heimbach to cruise to the checkered flag by 1.728 seconds for the $4000 victory.

Wagner, Taylor, Dylan CIsney and Lucas Wolfe completed the top five and Wagner was the races hard charger worth $600 courtesy of Mike Cleck Paving and Valley Supply.

“Anybody who knows us knows it hasn’t been an easy year at all, so this one is pretty special,” said Heimbach. “We were pretty good all night and I felt like we kept gaining on it after each race. It’s just nice to be able to reward the people who stick behind you and believe in you.”

In Penns Valley Meat Market PA Sprint Series 305 Sprint Car division action, Nick Sweigart capitalized on a pole starting position to lead all 20 laps and pick up his second victory of the 2020 race season at the Port Royal Speedway.

“Nitro Nick” lead the field to the green flag and he jumped out to the early lead over second-place starter Kirsten Hess. Series points leader Garrett Bard used the outside of the speedway to go from seventh to fourth on the opening circuit as well.

Third-place starter Doug Dodson moved into the runner-up position on lap four, but the caution flew for two slow cars in turn’s one and two to slow any momentum.

Dodson tried a slider entering turn one on the restart, but Sweigart pulled away easily exiting turn two. The following lap Bard moved into third and with the leaders burried in lap traffic, he moved into second on lap 14.

Bard attempted to track down the leader over the final six laps but could never mount a serious charge and Sweigart took the checkered flag by 1.470 seconds. The win was his his fourth career triumph at the “Speed Palace” and came over Bard, Dave Grube, Dodson and Domenic Melair.

“Starting up front was definitely key and wasn’t going to let the opportunity be wasted,” said Sweigart. “I love racing here and it’s just so cool to be standing here surrounded by a great crew and family and friends.”

Finally, Alex Bright held off Steven Drevicki to claim his first career Port Royal Speedway in the first ever visit of the USAC East Coast Sprint CarsWingless 360 Sprint Cars to the Port Royal Speedway.

358 regular Kevin Nouse and Shawn Donath led the field to the green flag with Donath jumping out to the early lead. Bright started fourth and was on the move early as he used the top of the track to take second and the following lap, he took the lead.

Fifth-place starter Drevicki entered the picture one lap later as he moved into the second position and on lap nine, he poked his nose to the inside of Bright in turn one and two. On lap 10 he pulled even with Bright heading to the start-finish line and Drevicki threw a huge slider entering turn to take the point briefly, before Bright powered back by down the backstretch.

The leaders battled nose to tail over the next three laps before the caution flew for a spinning car in turn one brought out the caution.

The field stayed the same over the next handful of laps before a caution came out with one too go setting up a one lap dash to the checkered flag. Drevicki tried another slidejob attempt on the restart, but Bright was too good and he powered home to the checkered flag by a .510 margin over Drevicki, Davie Franek, Billy Vaninwegen and Chris Allen Jr.

“This is only our third time out in this deal, and I’ve got to say this feels pretty darn good,” said Bright. “It was like the old days with me and Steven throwing sliders out there and it was just a lot of fun.”

Danny Dietrich was picking off cars and got up to fourth from his ninth starting spot on lap 4.

Trout was closing in on Givler for second. Dietrich caught Fisher going down the back stretch on lap 5 to take third. Dietrich had his sight set on the leaders and was using the bottom line around the track to reel them in.

Trout continued to close in on Givler as Dietrich hunted them down. The top three, Givler, Trout and Dietrich, were under a blanket on lap 9. Dietrich got by Trout for second on lap 10 and made quick work of Givler taking the lead going into turn 3 on the same lap.

Wyatt Hinkle came to a stop during the caution and was towed off the front stretch as well.

Dietz led Steve Owings, Justin Foster, Kuhn and Tyler Ross to the cone for the restart.

Altobelli paced the field for the restart ahead of Arnold, Householder, Kling and Hughes.

Cullum was looking to work his way into the top five, but Ray Kable had different plans. Kable was side by side for sixth with Cullum. Kable had the advantage going into turn 3 on lap 9 and made the pass at the line.

Cullum was still within striking distance until Kable raced his way to fourth.

Once again Altobelli and Arnold were pulling away from the rest of the field. Kable worked his way to third on lap 12.

Altobelli was being challenged by Arnold for the lead when the caution came out on lap 13 for Joey Polevoy who stopped in turn 2.

Kable stayed with the leaders on the restart, but the caution came out before he could make anything happen.

A pile-up of five cars in turn 2 was the cause of the yellow flag. Haley Kaiser, Alyssa Rowe, Chase Butler, Jason Saga and Chris Cogan were involved.

Kable challenged Arnold for second with five laps to go. Cullum made his way into the top five on lap 17.

The final caution of the race came with two laps to go when Doug Ostwald and Jason Saga spun around in turns 3 and 4.

The field lined up behind Altobelli for a green, white, checkered finish.

Kable was closing in on Arnold when the white flag flew but couldn’t make the pass.

Altobelli crossed the line head of Arnold, Kable, Brad Kling and Cullum.

Mid Atlantic Modified heat winners were Chris Arnold, Michael Altobelli Jr. and Dale Smith.

Selinsgrove To Honor Career And Legacy Of Jack Gunn Saturday

8/23/20

Selinsgrove, Pa –Selinsgrove Speedway will honor one of the greatest promoters of all time coming up this Saturday, August 29 with the 40th annual running of the Jack Gunn Memorial for Modern Heritage 410 Sprint Cars at 7:30 pm.

The race will go 30 laps and pay $5,000 to the winner.

For the first time in 20 years on Saturday, the race will be contested as a 410 sprint car event.

First run in 1981 at Selinsgrove and won by Lynn Paxton, the Gunn Memorial honors late Selinsgrove promoter Jack Gunn, a native of Hancock, Maryland.

Gunn was a Hall of Fame Promoter who heralded the speedway as announcer and promoter during the 1970s.

After his untimely death from cancer at the age of 48 in 1980, Gunn was honored nationally as the 1979 Promoter of the Year.

Having started out as an announcer in the area in the early 1960s, Gunn honed his skill on the microphone while eventually relaying his talents into promoter at Selinsgrove as well as at other area speedways.

It was during his tenure at the helm of Selinsgrove and other tracks like Williams Grove, Penn National and Hagerstown, Maryland, that Gunn rose to prominence on the local and national scene while taking his tracks along for the ride.

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

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

And it’s that power and reputation that Selinsgrove has honored with the Gunn Memorial each and every season since 1981.

Run as a 410 sprint car race through the 2000 season, no one has won the Gunn Memorial more at Selinsgrove than Todd Shaffer of Millerstown who scored four times in the event.

Keith Kauffman is a three-time winner.

Run as a 358 sprint event from 2001 – 2008, Blane Heimbach proved victorious three times during the time period.

The race has been contested as a 360 sprint contest since 2009 with Mark Smith, Trevor Lewis and Davie Franek each taking two wins during the run.

Kyle Reinhardt, already a super sprint winner at the track this season, is the defending Selinsgrove Gunn Memorial winner, aboard a 360 sprint car.

Jack Gunn Memorial All Stars Twin 20s At Williams Grove August 28

Twin Purses Offer Over $20,000 Each And $4,000 To Win

Sprints-Only Program Closes August At Oval

8/23/20

Mechanicsburg – Williams Grove Speedway will present the Jack Gunn Memorial Twin 20s for the All Stars Circuit of Champions Sprint Cars Series this Friday, August 28 at 7:30 pm.

The exciting event will be a sprints only program with gates for the big program opening at 5:30 pm.

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

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

Inversion possibilities will be four, six, eight, 10 or 12.

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

Both 20-lap feature events will carry full points toward the 2020 Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint car Williams Grove Speedway track title.

Brent Marks of Myerstown is the current Williams Grove Speedway point leader.

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

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

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

The All Stars will again be led into Williams Grove by series point leader Aaron Reutzel of Clute, Texas, who has six wins under this belt on the circuit this year.

Last year, Reutzel drove to victory in the first Gunn Memorial twin 20 and by doing so he became the first ever All Stars touring driver to win a main event at Williams Grove Speedway since the series first raced there in 1970.

Reutzel is going for his third All Stars circuit title in a row in 2020.

Californian Cory Eliason holds down second in All Stars season points followed by Zeb Wise

Following Reutzel’s win in the first Gunn Memorial twin last year, Lance Dewease came back to score the second of the twins but then Reutzel rallied again in September for another All Stars win at the track.

Thus, the locals known as the Pennsylvania Posse now hold a 35-3 record of victory against the touring stars as they again prepare to take on Williams Grove Speedway.

Invading independent Kyle Larson scored an All Stars win at Williams Grove in July of this season and in total Larson holds 12 this year in series action.

After the August 28 racing program, the All Stars Circuit of Champions will return to Williams Grove on Friday, September 18 to contest the Dirt Classic Qualifier.

The August 28 twin 20s will be another race in the 2020 Hoosier Diamond Series of races at the track.

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

Williams Grove Speedway And All Stars Sprints Honor Jack Gunn Friday

8/23/20

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Gunn was feted nationally as 1979 Promoter of the Year.

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

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

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

Gates will open at 5:30 pm.

Williams Grove And Selinsgrove Speedways Team To Present “Back-To-Back-For-Jack Bonus Challenges” For Jack Gunn Memorials Effort Offers Thousands In Bonus Money For 410 Sprint Drivers This Week! Hoseheads.com & Modern Heritage sponsor special promotion

8/23/20

Mechanicsburg – Williams Grove and Selinsgrove Speedways have joined forces to offer the Hoseheads.com & Modern Heritage “Back-To-Back-For-Jack 410 Sprint Car Bonus Challenges”, coming up at both speedways this Friday and Saturday, August 28 and 29, in conjunction with each oval’s Jack Gunn Memorial races.

A native of Hancock, Maryland, late promoter Jack Gunn held tenure at both facilities at times between the 1960s and the 1970s to much success and since the early 1980s, both historic venues have staged memorial races in honor of Gunn and his promotional prowess.

So when fate found both Williams Grove and Selinsgrove Speedways planning to stage their annual Gunn Memorials on back to back nights in 2020, the two-night races seemed to call for a little extra promotion, just as Gunn would have done.

On Friday night, Williams Grove will host twin 20-lap mains paying $4,000 each in honor of Gunn while Saturday’s Selinsgrove show offers a 30-lap main paying $5,000 to the winner.

If one driver can sweep both of the Gunn Memorial twin 20s at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, the track itself will award a $2,000 bonus to the lucky driver giving him an even 10K and that hot shoe will then have a chance to compete for more bonus money in the “Back-To-Back-For-Jack-Bonus-Challenge,” sponsored by Hoseheads.com sprint car internet website and Modern Heritage of Mifflinburg.

The “Back-To-Back-For-Jack Bonus Challenge” will find a $3,000 bonus in effect should the sweeper of the Williams Grove twins go on to score the 30-lap, $5,000 to win Gunn Memorial at Selinsgrove Speedway on Saturday night, pushing his total three-race winnings to an even $18,000 to include a total 5K bonus for the hat trick!

But that’s not all!

If two different drivers motor to victory on Friday in the twin 20s at Williams Grove and either one of those drivers can claim victory on Saturday night at Selinsgrove Speedway, he will pick up an extra $1,000 in the Hoseheads.com & Modern Heritage “Back-To-Back-For-Jack Bonus Challenge”, leveling that driver’s two-race winnings at $10,000.

And that’s not bad Jack, no matter how you look at!

Gates for Friday’s Williams Grove Speedway show open at 5:30 pm with time trials slated for 7:30.

Saturday gates at Selinsgrove Speedway open at 5 with racing slated for 7:30.

Since opening in late 2019, Modern Heritage is a region leader in kitchen and bathroom custom design work and installation, "Creating Beautiful and Timeless Spaces.” Offering not only full design and installation services, Modern Heritage carries full lines of flooring and cabinetry for every customer’s needs at its showroom located in Mifflinburg. www.modernheritage.style

Lucas Wolfe has been a long time contender on the hill but luck has never played to the advantage of Wolfe. There is no doubt, if Lucas Wolfe is in the line-up, he’s a contender for the win.

The thrilling 358 NASCAR Modifieds are the charm of Grandview Speedway every Saturday night. They never disappoint the fans when they are on a Thunder on the Hill Racing Series event. Very few tracks present shows with two star-studded divisions. After a series of qualifying events, the Modifieds will battle in a 30 lap feature paying $3,000 to win. The talent-filled field is expected to include Craig VonDohren, Duane Howard, Jeff Strunk, Brett Kressley, Rick Laubach, Doug Manmiller, Jared Umbenhauer, Mike Gular, Colt Harris, Kevin Hirthler and Mike Lisowski.

Freddie Rahmer Scores First Of Year In Williams Grove Sprints, Sheppard Bags World Of Outlaws Late Models Second Year Running

8/21/20

Mechanicsburg – Freddie Rahmer of Salfordville scored his first sprint car win of the season at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, taking the lead from Chase Dietz with 10 laps to go in the 25-lap main to record the 11th victory of his career at the track.

In the 40-lap World of Outlaws Late Models main, Brandon Sheppard of New Berlin, Illinois, scored the $10,000 flag to flag win for the second year in a row at the track.

The start of the 410 sprint car main was marred by a seven car crash on the frontstretch that saw two cars flip with Robbie Kendall flipping into the base of the flagstand while Chad Trout destroyed his mount just behind.

Other cars involved included Steve Buckwalter, Trenton Sheaffer, Brent Marks, Brian Montieth and Kyle Moody.

Trout was being evaluated for a possible elbow injury following the crash.

When action restarted, Jordan Givler led the first lap before fourth starter Chase Dietz took over by slipping underneath in the first corner.

Jason Solwold followed Dietz into second on the third circuit.

By lap six when Matt Campbell slowed on the track, Rahmer was up to third after lining up eighth for the restart following the initial start melee.

Rahmer went to work on Solwold when action resumed, taking second spot away with eight laps down and by that time Dietz had built up a 2.29 second lead over the field.

Rahmer steadily chipped away at the advantage over the ensuing laps and had the gap down to .865 seconds when a final caution flag unfurled with 12 laps to go.

Dietz would lead only one more lap after the restart as Rahmer darted low in the first turn on lap 15 to take command over the cushion-running leader.

Dietz raced back to Rahmer’s inside as the pair shot down the backstretch but Rahmer pulled away out of turn four with the point.

Danny Dietrich, who came to the stripe 12th on the restart after the initial start crash, muscled by Dietz for second with eight laps to go but failed to challenge Rahmer for the win.

Rahmer’s advantage at the finish was 1.060 seconds over Dietrich, Dietz, Solwold and Steve Buckwalter.

Sixth through 10th went to TJ Stutts, Kyle Reinhardt, Kyle Moody, Lucas Wolfe and Adrian Shaffer.

Heats went to Givler, Brent Shearer and Solwold.

Five caution flags hampered the pace in the World of Outlaws Late Models main but no matter how many times leader Brandon Sheppard had to deal with a restart he proved untouchable for the $10,000 payday.

Polesitter Cade Dillard chased Sheppard until with eight laps to go he slipped over the turn two cushion and lost several spots.

This moved Gregg Satterlee into second who had been running third since lap 11.

After starting 13th, Rick Eckert motored into fourth on lap 16 and he would assume third as Dillard took his trip over the cushion.

Mason Zeigler started fourth and raced inside the top five the entire distance to end up fourth with Gene Knaub coming home in fifth.

Sheppard took the win by .787 seconds over Satterlee.

Sixth through 10th in the main went to Ashton Winger, Darrell Lanigan, Chase Junghans, Dan Stone and Jeff Rine.

Heats went to Zeigler, Lanigan, Sheppard and Dillard with twin consolations going to Kyle Lee and Rine.

Brent Larson set fast time over the 39 car field with a lap of 19.773 seconds.

Feature Finishes, 8/21/20:

410 sprints, 25 laps: 1. Freddie Rahmer, 2. Danny Dietrich, 3. Chase Dietz, 4. Jason Solwold, 5. Steve Buckwalter, 6. TJ Stutts, 7. Kyle Reinhardt, 8. Kyle Moody, 9. Lucas Wolfe, 10.

THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES

LEVAN MACHINE & TRUCK EQUIPMENT PRESENT 410 SPRINT & MODIFIED DOUBLEHEADER. . . . .

RYAN TAYLOR EYES FIRST THUNDER WIN WHEN TONY STEWART’S ALL-STAR CIRCUIT OF CHAMPIONS INVADE GRANDVIEW THURSDAY, AUGUST 27

BECHTELSVILLE, PA AUGUST 18, 2020 . . . . . . The 410 Sprints will make their final visit of the year at Grandview Speedway on Thursday night, August 27 when Tony Stewart’s Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions team up with the 358 Modifieds as part of the Thunder on the Hill Racing Series presented by Levan Machine & Truck Equipment.

Both divisions will compete in qualifying events leading up to the 35 lap Thunder Cup paying $5,000 to win for the 410 Sprint feature and a 30 lap 358 Modified feature paying $3,000 to win. Gates open at 5 PM with race time set for 7:30 PM.

One 410 sprint driver looking to claim his first Thunder on the Hill victory is Ryan Taylor of nearby Mertztown, PA. Taylor started his racing career in the open-wheel karts at Oreville, and he credits his Dad for teaching him the basics. He progressed his driving career advancing to the slingshots then on to the modifieds at Grandview and Bridgeport. Somewhat exhausted of the weekly repairs needed to a modified, at age 18, Ryan made a move to the 410 sprints, and in Ryan’s words, “It was the best racing decision I’ve made yet!”

“Grandview is the track I grew up at, going there as a child, it holds a special place to me.” Taylor continued, “ I’ve raced modifieds at Grandview for a season and got to know many familiar faces.”

“To me, Grandview is one of my favorite places to run a sprint car. I think the track configuration provides a very fast-paced race with lots of traffic and passing, which is great for the fans and drivers alike.” Ryan describes Grandview this way, " It’s the right length straightaways for the right width corners with the right banking to provide wide-open racing early on at high speeds, with slick fun to slide on the surface at the end of the night."

Sponsors play a big part in the on-going success of this race team, and Ryan is quick to recognize Abreu Vineyards, CP=Carrillo, and Wilwood Racin. “Winning the Thunder Cup would be a huge win for myself, there are a lot of family and friends that come to Grandview to watch us race, and it would be nice to pick up a win there in this race. There sure would be a lot of celebrating going on!”

Winning will be no easy task with Aaron Reutzel of Clute, TX, in the field. He won the last two All Star events at Grandview, he is the defending All Series Champion and currently leads the 2020 point chase. Expected entries include Cory Eliason of Valisia, CA, Paul McMahan of Nashville, TN, Zeb Wise of Angola, IN, and Josh Baughman, Odessa, TX. Some home town favorites looking to chase the $5,000 first prize include Freddie Rahmer, Danny Dietrich, Anthony Macri, Alan Krimes, Brandon Rahmer, Brock Zearfoss, and Kyle Reinhardt, to name a few.

The thrilling 358 NASCAR Modifieds are the charm of Grandview Speedway every Saturday night. They never disappoint the fans when they are on a Thunder on the Hill Racing Series event. Very few tracks present shows with two star-studded divisions. After a series of qualifying events, the Modifieds will battle in a 30 lap feature paying $3,000 to win. The talent-filled field is expected to include Craig VonDohren, Duane Howard, Jeff Strunk, Brett Kressley, Rick Laubach, Doug Manmiller, Jared Umbenhauer, Mike Gular, Colt Harris, Kevin Hirthler and Mike Lisowski.

Breaking News- Bobby Rahal Toyota of Lewistown Presents “5 Times the Fun, 1 Hot Night”

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Penn.- (August 17, 2020) As rain has plagued the Port Royal Speedway throughout the month of August, the Speedway promotional team was left with the daunting task of figuring out how to reschedule events with limited dates available.

Originally a feature only schedule was pitched and approved for the Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Car division for this coming weekend (8/22/20). However, after much discussion with drivers, teams and the input of the fans, we have ultimately decided to run a full program for the 410 Sprint Cars to go along with two make-up features, plus the regularly scheduled PASS/IMCA 305 Sprint Car event and the USAC East Coast wingless 360 series event.

This means 5 Feature events in 1 night!!!

To accommodate such an event, the gates will now be opening at 3pm EST, with racing beginning at 6pm EST.

Admission Prices will be as follows- $20 GA, $10 Students, $30 Pits. The previously discussed $100 incentive for the 410 drivers has been scrapped as well with the addition of the full night’s program. Rain checks will not be honored from the make-up shows as all qualifying programs were completed, but there is no additional cost to the evening’s admission for the extra racing.

The Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Cars will kick off the night with the $4000/win make-up feature event from 8/15/20 at 6:00pm. There will be no alternates used for this feature as the field had already taken the green flag prior to rain hitting the speedway.

Following the completion of the feature event, the 410 Sprint Cars, Penns Valley Meat Market PASS/IMCA 305 Sprint Cars and the USAC East Coast Wingless 360 Sprint Cars will all partake in full programs with heat races/B-mains.

At the completion of all the qualifying events, we will run the make-up feature from the 8/1/20 14th Annual Living Legends Dream Race. The race pays $10,000 to win and $500 to start. The total purse for the Dream Race feature is over a staggering $35,000 and is the highest in the state for an unsanctioned event. The feature line-up has already been set with 26 starters. If any of those starters can’t make it, alternatives will be used. Those eligible in order are Michael Bauer, Dustin Baney, Richard Cisney, Landon Myers and Tyler Reeser.

Following that feature event, the PASS/IMCA 305 Sprint Cars will run their feature, followed by the USAC East Coast Wingless 360 Series feature and finally the night’s regularly scheduled Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Car feature.

We fully understand that this is unique and possibly overwhelming. As previously stated, with limited dates available and with a need to reschedule multiple events, this is the best possible way of doing things to benefit the drivers, fans and sponsors alike. We will be working throughout the night to move the program along.

We look forward to seeing you Saturday night for “Five Times the Fun” and ask that you continue to practice social distancing guidelines. Marks are encouraged, but not required and sanitizing stations remain throughout the facility for your use. If you do not feel well, PLEASE STAY HOME and view racing via www.FloSports.com.

Please stay tuned to our various social media outlets and website www.portroyalspeedway.com for any additional changes and we appreciate you remaining flexible during challenging times!

Marks Gets To Williams Grove Victory Lane, Locke And Drevicki Round Out Trio Of Winners

8/14/20

Mechanicsburg – A total of 74 sprint cars jammed the Williams Grove Speedway pit area on Friday night for a rare three-division open wheel program at the track that saw Brent Marks score the 410 sprint car win while Derek Locke took the 358 sprints and Steve Drevicki copped the USAC East 360 sprint main.

Marks of Myerstown started fourth in the 25-lap 410 sprint feature while Brian Montieth started on the pole.

And Phoenixville’s Montieth jetted into control when action began with Marks motoring up to second on just the second lap.

The frantic pace set by the leaders was slowed with six laps completed for a slowed Tyler Ross on the frontstretch.

The restart saw sixth starter Matt Campbell make a two car pass to move from fifth to third before another yellow bunched the field on the seventh tour.

The race would then go green all the way to the finish with Montieth running the cushion, doing his best to stay ahead of Marks, who was slamming the cushion as well.

But as the cushion-running leaders entered the rear of the field on lap 14, Marks began to slowly close on Montieth as he ran up on a pair of cars racing side by side for position.

With 10 laps to go, the pair was side by side at the line for the lead before Montieth pulled ahead.

Marks then regrouped for another run at the pacesetter and with five laps to go, he had caught Montieth again as the pair again crossed the line side by side again with Marks having just a nose into the lead.

But Montieth reclaimed command as the pair shot into the first turn only to see Marks go back out in front in the second turn before pulling Montieth back to the line with the pair again racing side by side with three laps left.

However Marks surged ahead this time around to get away just enough in order to prevent Montieth from slipping back by.

Marks then took the win by 1.088 seconds.

“That was a really, really hard race,” points leader Marks said, “One of the hardest I’ve had to race in a while.”

“I was just trying everything I could possibly do. I thought I lost the race there at one point.”

Matt Campbell finished third followed by Freddie Rahmer and Chad Trout.

Sixth through 10th went to Jeff Halligan, Zeb Wise, second starter Lucas Wolfe, Kyle Moody and Kyle Reinhardt.

Heats went to Campbell, Rick Lafferty and Rahmer.

Three attempts to get the 358 sprint main started were made before the first lap could be scored but when it had, polesitter Cody Fletcher was leading the field.

His run at the front was short lived however as second starter Derek Locke took over with two laps down.

The race was halted on the third lap when Russell Hammaker flipped in the third turn while others involved included Dave Brown Jr., Wyatt Hinkle and Nat Tuckey.

Eighth starter Doug Hammaker raced into second by lap seven and was chasing leader Locke when he entered traffic with nine laps to go in the 20-lapper.

A final caution flag with three laps to go gave Hammaker a clear shot at the leader but Locke moved down entering the first turn when action resumed to prevent a challenge from Developing to his inside.

Prior to that point, Locke was working the top while Hammaker bit into the lead using the low side.

Locked ended up taking the win for his second in a row, his second of the season and the second of his career at the oval.

Kevin Nouse rode home third followed by Fletcher and Zach Newlin.

Heats went to Nouse, Steve Owings and Locke with Scott Fisher taking the consolation race.

Bill Unglert started on the pole of the 25-lap USAC East 360 sprint main and led over Carmen Perigo Jr. when the race began.

Steve Drevicki, who entered the race as the tour point leader with two wins already this season, began the race in sixth.

Eighth starter Alex Bright moved into second behind Unglert on the ninth lap before Drevicki slid into the second spot on lap 11 using a slide job.

Drevicki then went to work on Unglert, taking the lead in the fourth turn with 10 laps to go before a caution flag regrouped the field.

Bright and Unglert swapped the second spot on laps 16 and 17 before Bright finally secured the spot.

A final caution flag with five laps to go put Bright on Drevicki’s tail and although he was able to get alongside Drevicki in the turns when action resumed he was never able to make a pass with Drevicki instead pulling away to the finish.

Billy Vaninwegen was third followed by Joe Biasi and Carmen Perigo Jr.

Heats went to Unglert, Bright and Biasi.

Brent Marks Picks Up First Win of the Season During Curt Hershey Memorial

Greg Satterlee and Garrett Bard Continue Dominating Ways As Well

PORT ROYAL, PA – After numerous runner-up finishes this season, Brent Marks finally parked his sprint car in victory lane following a dominating run in the Curt Hershey tribute race Saturday night at Port Royal Speedway, sponsored by Bobby Rahal Toyota of Lewistown.

Marks was 4-seconds behind Jared Esh when he took over second, but quickly tracked him down in lapped traffic using a fourth turn slider to grab the lead after slight contact. He drove away from there to a convincing 3.3-second win -his first of the season. His ninth career speedway win was worth $4,044, plus a $400 bonus for being the hard charger. He also received a $300 bonus for coming from ninth to win.

“Finally,” a relieved Marks said in victory lane. “It’s been one heck of a year. We’ve been fast all year long, but couldn’t quite get it in victory lane. Tonight, I wasn’t letting anything stop me. This car was awesome all night long. It all worked out great for me tonight.”

“He was a contributor to the sport and meant a lot to a lot of people and it’s an honor to win this race,” Marks said of Hershey.

Esh started second with Nicole Bower on the pole for the 25-lap main event. Esh grabbed the lead and streaked away from the field building a straightaway lead.

Meanwhile, Marks was racing forward from his ninth starting spot and was in a three-car battle for fourth. Esh quickly began lapping slower cars.

Marks secured fourth and quick passes of Kyle Reinhardt and Bower moved him into second with nine laps completed.

Esh was racing in heavy traffic with Marks closing quickly. Marks threw a huge slider at Esh as they raced into turn three. Marks cleared the pass with slight front end contact with Esh in turn four on lap 12.

“I was getting super aggressive,” Marks said. “I’m sure they were close slide-jobs, but you have to do that to win this deal. You can’t let them have the opportunity to get back by you. It’s awesome to be a winner in the CJB Motorsports car.”

“I would have liked to come out on top, but I’m very happy this is the first feature I got to run in this car,” Esh said of the Chiappelli 98. “Marks was in another league and Logan was good as usual. Right out of the box, we seemed to have decent speed. We were lucky in our heat race, some guys wrecked out which helped us get a handicap spot.

After spending years on the road, Marks turned back into a central PA regular this season.

“With the way things worked out with COVID this year, we had to change our schedule,” Marks said. “Most of the big racing is happening in Pennsylvania, so we decided to focus on this part of the country. This car is going to be fast anywhere we go now. Things are starting to come together. We’re fast every time we hit the track.”

Now it was Marks driving away from the field with the right rear up against the cushion. Eighth starter Logan Wagner took second from Esh with eight laps to go.

Marks controlled the final laps scoring the win over Wagner, Esh, Reinhardt and Ryan Taylor. AJ Flick, Dylan Cisney, TJ Stutts, Bower and Mike Wagner rounded out the top 10 in the non-stop race.

“We let Brent get by us early and that ultimately cost us the race,”

Wagner said. “Curt Hershey was a great guy. He propelled me to where I am today.”

Heat races for the 30 cars were won by Logan Wagner, Mike Wagner, and AJ Flick. Tyler Reeser won the B-main.

Late Models

Roy Deese led the opening lap of the 25-lap late model feature over Trevor Feathers and Dillan Stake. Gregg Satterlee moved by Stake and into third. Feathers stayed within striking distance of the leader as they closed on slower traffic by the half-way point.

The yellow flag flew keeping them out of traffic. The red flag was displayed as Stake’s car had a fire under the hood when he stopped on the frontstretch. He was okay.

Feathers ducked under Deese on the restart, but couldn’t make the pass with Satterlee lurking in third. Deese began to pull away following the challenge. Satterlee took second from Feathers with five laps to go.

Another yellow erased a 2.4-second lead for Deese.

Feathers car broke entering turn three on the restart bringing out the yellow. He had been racing third.

Satterlee tried the bottom on Deese on the restart, but Deese was fast thru the middle. He got a little too high the next lap giving Satterlee an opening. He shot under him entering turn three. They raced side-by-side down the frontstretch with Satterlee securing the lead in turn one.

He drove away from there for his fourth win of the season worth $2,544 and a guaranteed starting spot in the Frank Sagi race at Hagerstown.

Deese, Jeff Rine, Donald Lingo and Kyle Lee completed the top five.

Ross Robinson, Andy Haus, Gene Knaub, Mike Lupfer and Jason Covert rounded out the top 10.

Heat races for the 43 cars were won by Gregg Satterlee, Donald Lingo, Kyle Lee, Larry Neiderer and Dillan Stake. Coleby Frye won the B-main.

305 Sprints

A nasty backstretch crash involving Derek Hauck marred the start of the 20-lap main event for the 305 Sprints. Doug Dodson got collected in the crash as well. All drivers were reported okay.

Point leader Garrett Bard raced into the lead over Justin Clark when the race resumed. He cruised to his third win of the season over Clark.

Defending champion Ken Duke Jr. completed the podium after passing two cars on the final lap. Nick Sweigart, who started 20th, and Domenic Melair completed the top five. Jake Waters, John Walp, Roger Irvine, Fred Arnold and Andrew Boyer rounded out the top 10.

Clark’s car failed post-race tech and he was disqualified.

Heat races for the 49 cars were won by Jake Waters, Fred Arnold, Devin Adams, Justin Clark and Garrett Bard. Landon Price won the C-main and Doug Dodson won the B-main.

A New Identity In Twenty-Twenty

Shane Cottle Grabs Selinsgrove USAC Silver Crown Holland Classic On Final Lap

Bracy Bacon gets USAC East 360 Victory Sunday

8/9/20

Selinsgrove, Pa. – Veteran Shane Cottle of Kansas, Illinois, scored the win in Sunday night’s 74-lap Bill Holland Classic for USAC Silver Crown Sprint Cars at Selinsgrove Speedway with a picturesque pass at the start/finish line as the white flag waved.

Cottle’s ride to the $8,100 victory came after he changed a left rear tire on lap 30 of the race and restarted at the rear of the field.

Broken Arrow Oklahoma’s Brady Bacon took the win in the USAC East 360 sprint feature after leader Robert Ballou of Rocklin, California turned into the outside first turn fence before flipping on lap 14.

The original start of the Silver Crown event was red-flagged for a third turn flip as executed by Arizona’s Casey Buckman.

Cottle originally started the Holland Classic in 23rd and raced under the radar up to the point of his blown left rear tire with 44 laps to go.

Up to that point, polesitter CJ Leary of Greenfield, Indiana, had held sway over second starter Justin Grant of Ione, California.

When Cottle’s left rear let go near the start-finish line on lap 30, Mechanicsburg’s Dave Berkheimer ended up climbing up and over Cottle’s machine before flipping near the end of the frontstretch as fire shot from the bottom of his car.

Berkheimer was not injured.

Cottle then got the chance to replace his tire and restart at the tail of the field.

By lap 35, Leary and Grant had Brady Bacon, Kevin Thomas Jr. and Chris Windom in pursuit and with 47 laps completed the front four cars were threatening to settle the event between themselves as they pulled away from the field.

However tire preservation and tire wear would become an issue before the finish.

With 22 laps to go, Thomas and Windom made contact while racing for fourth with Thomas getting sidelined for the duration of the race while also regrouping the field for a restart.

And Leary poured on the speed when action resumed, trying to run away from the pack before the entire complexion of the extended distance affair changed during another caution period with seven laps to go.

Under the caution, Windom developed a right rear flat, forcing him to slow on the restart.

Bacon then restarted third and tried to work on Grant as Grant went after leader Leary, only to see caution again appear on lap 69, this time for more tire troubles.

And then Grant came up lame on lap 70, again with tire woes, dropping out of second, moving Bacon into the spot while also finding Cottle now running just behind.

A master on the low side, Cottle out gunned Bacon on lap 71 to race into second and set his sights on the leader only to again see the pace hampered with two laps to go.

The final restart, as with the last several, saw Leary drive a fast pace back to the green flag while trying to get a jump on the field as action resumed.

But Cottle stuck with him on the restart and tried a low move into the first turn.

Leary fought back that advance and then blasted low through turns three and four only to see Cottle change lanes as the pair raced onto the frontstretch.

And it was with picture perfect skills that Cottle got to Leary’s outside for the race-winning pass just as the pair crossed the start/finish line under the white flag.

Cottle then surged ahead as the pair raced into the first corner as he went on to the victory by .774 seconds.

Leary took second followed by Kyle Robbins, New Castle, Indiana; Bryan Gossel, Fort Collins, Colorado; and Carmen Perigo Jr., Stoystown.

Sixth through 10th went to Kyle Cummins, Princeton, Indiana; Bacon; Shane Cockrum, Benton, Illinois; Matt Goodnight, Winchester, Indiana; and Logan Seavey, Sutter, California.

Leary set fast time over the field with a lap of 21.676 seconds.

Alex Bright led the first two laps of the 20-lap USAC East 360 sprint main before second starter Brady Bacon took command.

However Bacon soon lost the lead to eighth starter Robert Ballou who was working the top cushion to perfection and in thrilling style as Ballou went out front on the fifth tour.

The leader hit traffic with nine laps to go but was working perfectly through the field when it appeared something may have broken on the front of his racer in the first turn.

Ballou pushed up over the cushion as he set the car into the corner and careened straight into the outside fence before flipping although escaping injury.

This handed the lead back to Bacon with defending series champion Steve Drevicki lining up second for the restart.

Bacon controlled action on the restart and again on a restart with five laps to go but a final restart with one lap to go found Drevicki in contention.

The Reading driver got under Bacon in the first turn for the lead only to see Bacon hold the line and race to his outside in turn two before the pair drag raced into the third corner.

Drevicki hung tough with Bacon through the turns but Bacon had just enough bite to surge ahead to the finish, taking the win by. .381 seconds.

Mark Smith was third followed by Kevin Thomas Jr. and Alex Bright.

Heats went to Drevicki, Ballou and Carmen Perigo Jr.

Gerard McIntyre Jr. and Billy Dietrich shared the front row of the 30-lap feature with Freddie Rahmer and Lucas Wolfe lined up in the second row.

McIntyre had the advantage going into turn 1 with Billy and Freddie in second and third respectively. A three-way battle for fourth was brewing between Tim Wagaman, Chad Trout and Lucas Wolfe when the caution came out on lap 1 for Tyler Esh. Esh slowed on the front stretch and came to a stop in turn 2.

The top five for the restart were McIntyre, Billy, Freddie, Wagaman and Wolfe.

McIntyre got a great restart. Freddie looked under Billy in turns 1 and 2 and took second. Matt Campbell, who was filling in for Brian Montieth as he spent time with his family, was up to fifth from ninth and got to work on Wagaman to try and take fourth.

Freddie was reeling in McIntyre and got close enough to slide under him in turn 4 on lap 6 to take the lead.

The yellow came out again on lap 9. This time it was for Jay Galloway when he spun out in turn 2. Galloway rejoined the field.

This time Freddie led McIntyre, Billy, Wagaman and Campbell to the cone for the single-file restart.

Brandon Rahmer tried to get by Campbell to enter the top 5. While those two battled for position Danny Dietrich entered the mix. Dietrich got by Brandon for sixth.

Wagaman was working on Billy for third and took the spot on lap 12.

Campbell and Danny made it a three-way battle with Billy for fourth with Danny getting by them both to take the spot.

Danny challenged Wagaman for third and took the spot coming out of turn 2 on lap 16. Next in Danny’s path was McIntyre. Danny got by Gerard for the runner-up spot on lap 19.

Freddie had a 1.9 second lead over Danny with 10 laps to go.

The yellow came out before the first lap was in the books. The field lined up for a complete restart behind Allman and Strickler.

Chris Frank came to a stop on the back stretch before the green came out for the restart. Frank’s belts had come loose. When a driver stops for a safety issue they are able to restart in their running position instead of tailing the field. Frank kept his third starting spot.

Strickler took the lead once again at the start. Fletcher was up to second as he came out of turn 2 but the red flag came out before a lap was completed.

Cameron Burke and Hayden Miller both got upside down and Justin Foster was collected as a casualty of the incident. Foster was able to rejoin the field for another complete restart.

The third time was the charm for the field to start. Strickler shot out to the lead once again. This time it was Frank battling Allman for second.

Justin Foster came to a stop on the front stretch on lap 4 bringing out a caution.

Strickler led Allman, Fletcher, Hammaker and Frank to the cone for the single-file restart.

Strickler drove to the lead into turn 1 with Hammaker getting by Fletcher for third and battling Allman for second.

Kody Hartlaub entered the top 5 on the restart.

Hammaker got to the outside of Allman coming out of turn 4 to take second on lap 7.

Allman, Hartlaub and Fletcher battled for third with Hartlaub taking the spot on lap 9.

The red flag came out again on lap 10 when Zane Rudisill tipped over in turn 1. Matt Findley got collected in the incident as well.

Strickler paced the field for the restart ahead of Hammaker, Hartlaub, Allman and Fletcher.

Strickler and Hammaker both chose to go low into turn 1 with Strickler holding on to the lead.

Jeff Rohrbaugh, who sits atop the all time win list in 358 competition at the track, entered the top five on lap 11.

Hammaker was trying everything to get by Strickler including a slide job on lap 13 in turns 1 and 2. Strickler got Hammaker back coming out of turn 2 to keep the lead.

As the top two battled for the lead, Hartlaub reeled them in.

Strickler was making the bottom of 1 and 2 work as Hammaker rolled through the middle. Despite throwing everything he had at the leader, Hammaker couldn’t make the pass.

Strickler won his first 358 feature by 1.049 seconds over Hammaker. Hartlaub crossed the line third. Rohrbaugh finished fourth and Chris Arnold completed the top five.

The 358 Sprint heat races were won by Travis Scott, Jeff Rohrbaugh, Chad Criswell and Chris Frank.

Jeff Paulson lined up fourth for the 15-lap Outlaw Vintage Racing Series feature on Saturday night.

Jon Lines started on the pole with Andy Cassel lined up on his outside.

Cassel led Paulson, Dave Dissinger. Mike Stofflet and Mark Hahn for the restart.

Cassel went high in turns 1 and 2 with Paulson using the bottom to close in on the leader. Paulson made the pass for the lead coming out of turn 4 on lap 2.

The yellow flag came out again on lap 3 when Travis Jacobus stopped on the highside of turn 2. Cassel was off the pace when the yellow came out.

Paulson paced the field and took the lead on the restart with Stofflet trying to get by Dissinger for second.

Stofflet got by Dissinger at the line on lap 4 for second right before the caution came out as Cassel was once again off the pace.

Paulson took the lead once again on the restart and started to pull away from the field.

Scott Schaeffer drove by Dissinger for fourth on lap 6 and made quick work of Hahn for third.

Stofflet caught Paulson and got a nose under him lap 7. Schaeffer entered the mix using the high side as the leaders entered lapped traffic on lap 11.

Paulson passed two lapped cars at the line on lap 12 and Stofflet was right behind him.

Another yellow came on lap 13 for John Marks who got spun around in turns 1 and 2. Stofflet and Schaeffer who were running second and third got collected in turns 1 and 2 as well.

Port Royal Speedway set for three-division show to honor Curt Hershey along with Salute to the Military night

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Penn- (August 6, 2020)- Coming off a weekend where persistent rain showers postponed the feature events until dates later this season, racing returns to the Port Royal Speedway this weekend (August 8) sponsored by Bobby Rahal Toyota of Lewistown with a three division show featuring the Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Cars, the River Valley Builders Super Late Models and the Penns Valley Meat Market PASS/IMCA 305 Sprint Cars.

The night will be the annual ‘Salute to the Military’ night and all military veterans will receive FREE ADMISSION with a proper government military ID card or DD-214 form. Bob Timney, a military veteran from State College, Pa., who goes by the stage name of ‘Sgt. Bob’, will sing the national anthem and will provide free music entertainment presented by Butler Hill Maple Farm on the stage just outside of the frontstretch entrance gates next to the ticket offices from 4-6pm EST.

Along with the salute to the military, the track will also pay homage to late engine builder Curt Hershey. Hershey was the owner of Hershey’s Racing Engines and produced powerplants for many 410 sprint cars, dirt late models and 305 sprint cars throughout the years. He was described as an asset to the racing community and his support and engines guided many of driver’s careers who have raced at the speedway over the years. He passed away June 23rd at the age of 58 and is missed dearly.

In remembrance of Hershey, the track has increased the purses in all divisions where the 410’s will be racing for $4,044, the late models will race for $2544 to win and the 305’s will be vying for $444 to win and $222 to start. Also, on the line for the late models will be a $50 bonus to all heat race winner’s courtesy of D&D Auto Recycling.

In the 305 division, the hard charger award will be worth an increased $200 courtesy of Penns Valley Meat Market and CG Racing Engines and Newlin’s Bar Service will be handing out a torsion bar cleaning tool to the highest finishing driver using a Hershey’s Racing Engine. If one of those drivers can win the feature, they will also receive an additional $44 from Newlin’s.

In Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Car competition, Logan Wagner enters the weekend with a narrow 40-point advantage in the season standings over his father Mike Wagner. AJ Flick (-210), Anthony Macri (-250) and Brent Marks (-265) make up the top five. The most recent winner at the speedway in the division was Kyle Larson back on July 19th.

Colton Flinner is the current points leader for the River Valley Builders Super Late Models, and he hold a slim 15-point advantage over Trevor Feathers. Andy Haus (-55), Dylan Yoder (-80) and Mike Lupfer (-140) fill out the top-five. Gregg Satterlee currently is riding a wave of three victories in his last four appearances at the track and if in attendance will likely be the favorite.

Finally, in the Penns Valley Meat Market PASS/IMCA 305 Sprint Car division Garrett Bard holds down the point standings lead by 75-points over Doug Dodson. Erin Statler (-140), Nick Sweigart (-145) and last year’s champion Ken Duke (-155) make up the top five. Bard has two victories in three races at the speedway in 2020 and will be looking to further stretch his lead this weekend.

Sunday USAC Selinsgrove Event Offers “Champ Cars & Local Bars Expo,” Live Music, Silver Crown Display And Tribute To Bill Holland

8/2/20

Selinsgrove, Pa – Sunday’s historic USAC Silver Crown Series Bill Holland Classic, 74th Selinsgrove Speedway Anniversary Race offers plenty of action, both on and off of the track.

The special event includes the “Champ Cars & Local Bars,” local brews and wines expo, beginning when gates open at 4:30 pm.

To go along with the historic USAC Silver Crown Champ Car Series race at Selinsgrove Speedway, the “Champ Cars & Local Bars” expo offers fans the chance to purchase more than a dozen locally crafted ales to go along with wines, wine slushies, seltzers and more!

Local band Fully Loaded will perform on the Keller’s Auto Body & Towing Stage located along the midway between approximately 4:45 and 6:15 pm.

The speedway and USAC will have a display of USAC Silver Crown cars on display for race-goers to inspect prior to the start of racing action along with a tribute to the race’s namesake, the winner of the very first race ever held at Selinsgrove Speedway in 1946, Bill Holland of Philadelphia.

Local brewers Spyglass Ridge Winery of Sunbury and Three Beards Brewing Co. of Sunbury will be on display and offering up cool brews and treats to go along with the hot USAC on-track action.

Another event in the 2020 Slivinski Law Offices Super 7 Series at the track, the race will not only include the 74-lap, Bill Holland Classic 74th anniversary contest paying $8,000 to win but the USAC East 360 Wingless Sprint Series is also on the two-division racing card.

The big car, big race is a “can’t miss” Selinsgrove Speedway event for the ages that will showcase not only an extremely rare contest for wingless champ car sprints at the big half-mile but it will do so in an equally rare long-distance event.

Bill Holland of Philadelphia won the very first race ever run at Selinsgrove Speedway on July 20, 1946 before going on to win the 1949 Indianapolis 500 after a legendary career in AAA sanctioned racing contests across the nation

THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES

EXPECTED SEVERE WEATHER CONDITIONS FORCE CANCELLATION OF USAC NATIONAL MIDGET & MODIFIED DOUBLE HEADER TUESDAY AT GRANDVIEW

BECHTELSVILLE, PA AUGUST 3, 2020 . . . . Due to the fast-approaching Tropical Storm Isaias and the forecast of high winds and heavy rain, management of the Thunder on the Hill Racing Series in conjunction with USAC officials are canceling the Tuesday night, August 4 NOS Energy USAC National Midget & 358 Modified event at Grandview Speedway. The weather outlook is very dismal, with rain forecasted at 100% throughout the entire day and an estimated rainfall of two to three inches. This event will not be rescheduled for 2020.

"It's an unfortunate turn of events for the 2020 racing season," Co-promoter Bob Miller said. "We were excited to offer up a great night of USAC Midget racing, but with the current pandemic, minimizing the cost for race teams is important. We will prepare for this event in 2021."

With the odds stacked against the chance of getting the Tuesday, August 4 event in the books, the early cancellation will allow USAC race teams and spectators to remain safe at home, waiting for the storm to pass before heading east for the balance of the USAC Midget swing.

The next Thunder on the Hill Racing Series event is set for Thursday night, August 27 with the return of Tony Stewart's All Star Circuit of Champions 410 Sprints. The 358 Modifieds will be part of the doubleheader with gates opening at 5 PM and race time set for 7:30 PM.

Adult admission tickets are $30, Children 6 to 11 are $10, Children 5 and under will be admitted free. The pit fee is $40, and a license is not required. Advance tickets are available by calling 443 513 4456. Please speak clearly and provide your first and last name and the number of tickets you need.

Abbottstown, PA (August 1, 2020) – Danny Dietrich lined up eighth for the 30-lap feature on DCS School of Driving Night. Despite a caution filled event, Dietrich worked his way through the field and caught the leader, Billy Dietrich, and took the lead from his brother with 7 laps to go. Dietrich went on to win his first feature at the track in over a month.

Glenndon Forsythe and Scott Fisher shared the front row at the head of the 25-car field on Saturday night. Forsythe shot to the lead when the green flag dropped with Dylan Norris moving into second. Fisher and Billy Dietrich drag raced down the backstretch for third with Dietrich taking the spot. Jim Siegel followed and moved into fourth sending Fisher to fifth.

The first caution of the race came on lap 2 when Alan Krimes slowed on the front stretch. Krimes rejoined the field after stopping in the work area.

Forsythe led Norris, Billy, Siegel and Fisher to the cone for the single-file restart.

Dietrich was the only driver in the top 5 to opt for the high line in turns 1 and 2 on the restart. Norris got under Forsythe coming out of turn 2 and as the two battled for the lead Billy got by both of them to take the top spot.

Siegel moved into third and the top three, Dietrich, Forsythe and Siegel, started to pull away from the rest of the field.

The leaders approached lapped traffic on lap 7.

Brian Montieth was working through the field from his ninth starting spot and was trying to get in the top 5 as he battled Fisher.

Another yellow came on lap 8 when Aaron Bollinger stopped on the front stretch.

Billy paced the field with Forsythe, Siegel, Norris and Fisher lined up behind him for the restart.

Once again Billy shot to the top going into turns 1 and 2 with Forsythe working the bottom as Siegel was all over him for the second spot.

Siegel slid Forsythe in turns 3 and 4 for second but Forsythe returned the favor in turns 1 and 2. Once again Siegel got by Forsythe in 3 and 4 with Forsythe taking second back in 1 and 2. Siegel finally held him off to take the spot on lap 11 after an intense battle.

The third caution came on lap 11 when Tony Fiore stopped on the front stretch.

The running order for the top five on the restart was Dietrich, Siegel, Forsythe, Norris and Fisher. Danny Dietrich was lurking in sixth with Montieth behind him, both wanting to get into the top five.

Danny got around Fisher earning a spot in the top five. Troy Wagaman Jr. was on the move and got by Montieth and went right to work on Fisher.

Danny got by Norris for fourth before the fourth yellow came on lap 14. Steve Surniak got turned around in turns 3 and 4.

Billy led Siegel, Forsythe, Danny and Troy on the restart. Yet another caution came on lap 15 for a three-car pile-up in turn 4 involving Alan Krimes, Chad Trout and Matt Campbell. Trout and Campbell rejoined the field.

Danny got by Forsythe for third on the restart putting Siegel in between the two Dietrich brothers.

Siegel slid Billy on lap 18 in turns 1 and 2 for the lead but it did not stick allowing Billy to hold onto the lead.

The fifth caution came on lap 18 when Trout and Brie Hershey got together in turn 4.

Another yellow came on the restart as the field stacked up behind Billy with Freddie Rahmer getting on top of Troy. Rahmer collected Fisher and Montieth. Troy was able to continue on without stopping, keeping his top five spot. Brett Michalski was also involved ending his night.

After an open red for fuel, Siegel, Danny, Forsythe and Troy lined up behind Billy for the restart.

Danny drove to the bottom into turn 1 to try and get a run on Siegel for second. Danny got by Siegel at the line on lap 19 for second.

Billy had a nearly 1.5 second lead over his brother with 10 laps to go.

Chase Dietz got under Troy coming out of turn 2 to enter the top 5 on lap 22. Wagaman got him back at the line to hold the spot but the two continued to swap back and forth for position.

Danny drove by Billy for the lead on the front stretch on lap 23 after Billy made contact with the outside wall.

Danny was catching the tail end of the field with 3 laps to go, but his lead of 2.684 seconds gave him plenty of leeway over Billy as the laps wound down.

Danny beat his brother to the checkered flag by 1.839 seconds. Siegel finished third. Adam Wilt made a last lap pass for fourth and Forsythe crossed the line fifth.

410 heat winners were Jim Siegel, Dylan Norris and Scott Fisher.

The 358 Sprint feature was rained out and will be made up on Saturday, August 8. The Classic Car feature will be made up on a future date.

This Saturday, August 8, Lincoln Speedway is back in action with the Hank Gentzler Memorial Manufacturers Appreciation Race presented by Pancho’s Racing Products featuring 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints and the Vintage Outlaw Series.

Dietrich Steals Lead From Macri For First Williams Grove Sprints Win Of Season

Derek Locke Gets First Career Oval 358 Sprint Victory

7/31/20

Mechanicsburg – Danny Dietrich took the lead from Anthony Macri on a lap 18 restart and went on to win his first Williams Grove Speedway 410 sprint main of the season on Friday night at the Cumberland County oval.

The victory was the 25th of Dietrich’s career at the speedway.

In the 25-lap 358 sprint main, Carlisle’s Derek Locke sped to victory.

The win was the third generation driver’s first ever win at the facility.

Tyler Ross could lead only one lap of the 25-lap 410 sprint feature before second starter Anthony Macri got by for control.

Macri hit lapped traffic on the eighth loop with Ross and third starter Danny Dietrich in tow.

The pair dueled for second briefly before Brent Marks and Brock Zearfoss joined in the battle and as all four pilots raced for second under a blanket, Macri began getting away from the field.

By lap 16, Macri had a straightaway lead over the four-car battle for second as Dietrich went for a pass in turns three and four with Ross holding the spot.

That move by Dietrich only served to intensify the war for second as the foursome really bunched up for the spot as they raced into turn three on the 18th tour.

With Zearfoss in the middle and Marks blasting the bottom, Ross ran the top groove only to see both cars get underneath and edge him too high in the fourth corner, forcing him to come to a stop.

Dietrich then took over second with Marks, Zearfoss and now Freddie Rahmer inside the top five.

Macri had been rolling the cushion to perfection prior to the yellow, making his time while pulling away from the field.

But when action resumed, he dropped off of the cushion line entering the first turn and instead rolled in through the middle before sliding up to catch the cushion.

This gave Dietrich exactly the run that he needed for the win as he worked off of the bottom down the backchute to blast by on the lowside in turns three and four for control.

Macri seemed to struggle after the restart, soon giving up second to Marks with five laps left.

By that time however, Dietrich was off and running to the win, which he go by a margin of 2.616 seconds.

Macri settled for third followed by Zearfoss and Lucas Wolfe.

Sixth through 10th went to Ryan Smith, Freddie Rahmer, Jason Solwold, Chase Dietz and Matt Campbell.

Twin heats went to Ross and Macri.

“On the restart we went into one and I thought maybe he might slide himself so I just had to nail the bottom,” Dietrich said of his strategy against Macri on the final restart.

“We’ve been racing against some really, really good competition, whether it’s the All Stars or the outlaws or just plain Kyle Larson.”

The 25-lap 358 sprint main, a Summer Series extra distance event, got off to a rocky start with four attempts at getting the first lap complete before Derek Locke could be scored as the official leader.

Locke would end up leading all 25 laps but not before feeling pressure late in the race as applied by Brett Wanner.

A red for refueling with three laps to go saw Wanner get under and beside Locke for control on the restart and ensuing laps but a wiggle on the second turn cushion with one and one-half laps to go sealed the deal for Locke.

Wanner had also gotten by Locke for the lead on lap 11 only to see Locke come back on him for control in the third turn.

Polesitter Kevin Nouse was sidelined from the event during the second attempted start when Doug Hammaker blasted underneath him for second in the third turn and made contact with his left front wheel, sending him careening upward across the speedway.

Hammaker would later withdraw from the event mid-race.

Dylan Norrish rode home third followed by Jordan Strickler and Scott Fisher.

Sixth through 10th went to Jordan Givler, Brett Strickler, Rich Eichelberger, Chad Criswell and Matt Findley.

Heats went to Locke, Hammaker and Nouse with Findley taking the consolation race.

Feature Finishes, 7/31/20:

410 sprints, 25 laps: 1. Danny Dietrich, 2. Brent Marks, 3. Anthony Macri, 4. Brock Zearfoss, 5. Lucas Wolfe, 6. Ryan Smith, 7. Freddie Rahmer, 8. Jason Solwold, 9. Chase Dietz, 10.

The two divisions combined purse will be over $70,000 with $10,000 on the line for the winner of the Sprint Car A-main and $3000 on the line for the winner of the Super Late Models. The late model show will be sanctioned by the ULMS Racing Series and serves as a make-up for their event that was cancelled earlier this season because of COVID-19.

Traditionally the race honors one or two “Living Legends” from the past of the speedway, however this year there will be a unique special presentation in its place that will take place prior to racing activities for the night.

The first ever Dream Race was held in 2007, where Sean Michael triumphed in a very popular and emotional win driving for the late Jim Nace in his #6 Sprint Car. Since then Greg Hodnett (2), Cody Darrah, Chad Layton, Blane Heimbach, Ryan Taylor, Brent Marks, Rick Lafferty, Lance Dewease (2) and most recently AJ Flick have all won the prize event.

For the 410 Sprint Cars there will be a featured full purse of over $55,000 and it will pay $500 to start. The main event offers over $35,000 throughout the field and traditionally is the highest paying unsanctioned purse in the state.

The event includes a unique format featuring twin 16-lap semi mains carrying full purses that help set the feature lineup. Winners will earn $2,000 for their efforts, $200 to start and nearly $10,000 makes up the purse for each Semi. Longtime promoter and racing announcer Ted Reitz is a main sponsor for the semi-purses.

Time trials set the semi lineups via an inversion draw with odd and even qualifiers making up each semi and the top-10 for each advancing directly to the evenings A-main. Packers Concessions is providing a $100 Fast Time Award for the pole sitter of each semi. The top three in each semi will advance to the re-draw. There will be a fan vote for a 25th starter as well. To be eligible, the driver must finish the B-Main and be a non-qualifier.

As traditional, thousands of dollars’ worth of contingency prizes are also given out throughout the night and there will be enough to guarantee each driver receives something. This includes 4 Right- Rear Tires courtesy of Hoosier Racing Tire, One free set of Penske Racing Shocks, 2 engine dynos via Rider Racing Engines, 1 engine dyno courtesy OF Don Ott Racing Engines, 4 $100 certificates via Diversified Machine Inc., 25 $25 certificates via Kreitz Oval Track Parts and 3 $100 certificates towards a top wing via Vortex Racing Products.

The late model purse features close to a $12,500 purse with A-Main qualifiers guaranteed $250 to start. On top of the previously announced $3000 winner’s share, the winner of this year’s event will earn themselves a guaranteed starting spot in the Frank Sagi Tribute Race held August 16th at Hagerstown Speedway in nearby Maryland.

There will also be a Kid’s Money Scramble courtesy of Pennian Bank for Kids 11 and Under. Kids will assembly in the infield during time-trials where $500 in coins will be up for the taking. We will also have a candy scramble as well at the same time.

Saturday, August 15 (7:30PM) 410 Sprints + 358 Sprints + Mid-Atlantic Modifieds

Abbottstown, PA (July 29, 2020) – After charging from ninth to third in his second heat race to solidify a second place starting spot in the 40-lap feature, David Gravel said “If I can’t win from second I should quit” during a pit interview. Gravel won’t be quitting anytime soon as the World of Outlaw driver led wire to wire to claim the $10,000 prize in Wednesday night’s Drydene 40.

Gravel lined up to the outside of Brian Montieth for the feature start. Gravel used his outside starting spot to gain the advantage over Montieth going into turn 1. Logan Schuchart settled into third while Brent Marks and Lucas Wolfe battled for fourth behind the leaders.

The first caution of the race came on lap 2 when Adam Wilt came to a stop on the back stretch.

Gravel led Montieth, Schuchart, Marks and Wolfe to the cone for the single file restart.

Montieth went high to try and catch Gravel but it left the bottom open for Schuchart to take second in turns 1 and 2.

Marks followed taking third, but the caution came out again on lap 3 before the lap was completed to make the pass official. The yellow was for Billy Dietrich who got spun around in turns 1 and 2.

Once again Gravel paced the field for the restart. Gravel and Schuchart pulled away from Montieth as he tried to fend off Marks. Marks got by Montieth for third on lap 4.

After suffering extensive damage in his heat first heat race and qualifying through the B-main, Freddie Rahmer pulled in on lap 8.

Schuchart stayed with Gravel at the front of the pack as the two pull away from the field. Marks also pulled away from the rest of the field as he reeled in the leaders.

Lucas Wolfe entered the top four on lap 10 after getting by Montieth. Brandon Rahmer followed getting into the top 5.

The leaders entered lapped traffic on lap 12. Marks used the bottom in turns 1 and 2 to get by Schuchart for second on lap 13 as Logan tapped the wall using the high line.

Schuchart took second back on lap 15 but only temporarily as Marks took the spot back right at the line.

Schuchart tried the top in 1 and 2 to get by Marks but it was to no avail.

Marks got to the bumper of Gravel but couldn’t make a move for the lead.

The top three were running under a blanket as Gravel and Marks were nearly side by side at the line with 7 laps to go.

Gravel beat Marks to the line for the $10,000 pay day by .485 seconds. Schuchart finished third only .407 seconds behind Marks. Wolfe crossed the line fourth and Alan Krimes completed the top five.

Utilizing the Dirt Classic format points were given for time trial finish and two sets of heat races. The first set of heat races were lined up straight up from time trials. The first set of heats were won by Brian Montieth, Lucas Wolfe and Jacob Allen. The heat line ups for the second set of heats were an invert of the first set. The second set of heats were won by Lance Dewease, Anthony Macri and Dylan Cisney. After time trials and heats the top 20 were locked into the 40-lap feature. The remaining cars ran the B-main with the top four transferring to the main event.

Aug. 9 USAC Silver Crown Selinsgrove Show Features “Champ Cars & Local Bars” Expo

Historic Race To Showcase Bill Holland Classic 74th Anniversary Race With Local Brews!

USAC East 360 Sprints also on Sunday racing card

7/27/20

Selinsgrove, Pa - The upcoming August 9 appearance of the USAC Silver Crown Champ Dirt Car Series for the Bill Holland Classic 74th Anniversary Race at Selinsgrove Speedway is growing!

The special event will now include the “Champ Cars & Local Bars,” local brews and wines expo, beginning when gates open at 4:30 pm.

To go along with the historic USAC Silver Crown Champ Car Series race at Selinsgrove Speedway, the “Champ Cars & Local Bars” expo will offer fans the chance to purchase more than a dozen locally crafted ales to go along with wines, wine slushies, seltzers and more!

Live music is also expected to be part of the special event.

Local brewers Spyglass Ridge Winery of Sunbury and Three Beards Brewing Co. of Sunbury will be on display and offering up cool brews and treats to go along with the hot USAC on-track action.

Another event in the 2020 Slivinski Law Offices Super 7 Series at the track, the race will not only include the 74-lap, Bill Holland Classic 74th anniversary contest paying $8,000 to win but the USAC East 360 Wingless Sprint Series is also on the two-division racing card.

The big car, big race is a “can’t miss” Selinsgrove Speedway event for the ages that will showcase not only an extremely rare contest for wingless champ car sprints at the big half-mile but it will do so in an equally rare long-distance event.

The USAC Silver Crown Selinsgrove event coming up on August 9 will be the first ever Silver Crown race at the speedway. And it will be just the second time in history that a USAC event of any kind has been staged at the oval since USAC formed out of the defunct AAA in 1955.

Bill Holland of Philadelphia won the very first race ever run at Selinsgrove Speedway on July 20, 1946 before going on to win the 1949 Indianapolis 500 after a legendary career in AAA sanctioned racing contests across the nation

Among the USAC Silver Crown standouts expected to compete in the Holland Classic, five-time and defending Silver Crown champion Kody Swanson of Zionsville, Indiana, is at the top of the list.

Others expected to enter include 2016 Silver Crown champion “The Bear” Chris Windom, Canton, Illinois; USAC Sprint champion Brady Bacon, Broken Arrow, Oklahoma; “Sunshine” Tyler Courtney, Indianapolis, Indiana; CJ Leary, Greenfield, Indiana; and Justin Grant, Ione, California, among many others.

Aug. 9 Selinsgrove USAC Silver Crown Race Steeped In History – Of Holland & United States Auto Club!

7/26/20

Selinsgrove, Pa - When Selinsgrove Speedway hosts the USAC Silver Crown Series for Championship Dirt Cars on Sunday, August 9, for the first time in series and oval history, it will be honoring the track’s original winner, Bill Holland.

Holland won the inaugural race at the track on July 20, 1946 and that in itself was historic.

But Holland’s entire historic career is also meant to be feted with the race that itself, by virtue of carrying a USAC sanction, will also be making history as the Bill Holland Classic 74th Anniversary Race.

The USAC event will be just the second time ever that Selinsgrove Speedway will be hosting a USAC race.

The first event, a regular sprint race, was back on July 17, 1971 and it was Linglestown driver Mitch Smith that topped the USAC boys while competing on a temporary permit as granted by USAC officials to a select few local drivers that wished to join in the fun.

On that night, Smith drove a Gary Wasson-owned sprinter to what was billed as a “super blitz of USAC.” It was an occurrence that was virtually unheard of at the time, anywhere that USAC went.

But not only did local boy Smith win, he led a one-two-three finish by locally permitted drivers against the USAC invaders.

Sixth starter Smith took second from U SAC kingpin Larry Dickson on lap 14 and then drove around USACer Lee Kunzman on a lap 15 restart for second.

It took until lap 29 for Smith to go low on leader Osborne to get the lead and run to the 40-lap victory over Osborne and Bobbie Adamson.

Local turned USAC start Toby Tobias was fourth with Kunzman finishing fifth.

That race in 1971 took place just three days shy of the 25th anniversary of the first ever race held at the new Selinsgrove Speedway on the afternoon of July 20, 1946, won by Willard “Bill” Holland.

Holland began his illustrious racing career in his mid 20s in 1932 and before he retired in 1959, he had accumulated 53 sprint car wins across the East and Midwest while competing with AAA as well as in unsanctioned events.

In 1946 alone, Holland notched 16 sprint victories.

Holland was the 1941 AAA East champion and took second in the national AAA title fight in 1947. His USAC “Big Car” days spanned from 1936 – 1954 during which time he put up over 150 podium finishes.

The 1949 Indianapolis 500 found Holland throttling to victory to go along with second-place Indy finishes in 1947, 1948 and in 1950.

Bill Holland of Philadelphia was the son of a turn-of-the-century major league baseball player who inherited his father’s athletic abilities that found him proficient in roller and ice skating, leading to a tryout for the 1932 Olympic Winter Games.

Late in his racing career as well as afterward, Holland owned and operated a number of roller skating rinks from Connecticut to Arizona before succumbing to Alzheimer’s Disease in 1984.

Holland was posthumously inducted into the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame in 2005.

The 74-lap, $8,000 to win, USAC Silver Crown Series Bill Holland Classic 74th Anniversary Race at Selinsgrove Speedway gets underway at 7 pm, August 9.

The USAC East Wingless 360 Sprint Series is also on the racing card.

Adult general admission is set at $25 with youth ages 12 – 17 admitted for $15. Kids ages 11 and under are admitted for FREE.

Advanced tickets can be purchased by emailing contact information to: promoter@selinsgrovespeedway.com. Gates for advanced ticket holders will open at 4 pm with regular general admission gates opening at 4:30 pm.

There will be no racing at the track on August 1.

FROM WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY

July 25, 2020

DAVID GRAVEL WINS $20K IN CHAMPION RACING OIL SUMMER NATIONALS AT

WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY

MECHANICSBURG, PA – David Gravel is one of the best at Williams Grove

Speedway right now.

The Connecticut native dominated the Champion Racing Oil Summer

Nationals for the sprint cars Saturday night earning $20,000 for his

seventh career Grove win, and third win of the season against the

World of Outlaws.

He led all 30 laps unchallenged in the Jason Johnson Racing No. 41.

“We finally got a good pill draw for the dash,” Gravel said. “You

wanted to start on the outside row of the dash. My goal was to finish

second and we were able to do that. I knew if I started second, I

could probably get the jump on the start and hopefully control the

race. The track was real fast around the top. Three and four was

getting a little tricky. I didn’t know what the best lane was. I knew

running the top I was getting a lot of momentum on exit. Cautions went

my way. I didn’t have to deal with lapped traffic. When you’re out

front and can control the race, it’s so much easier. When you start

seventh or eighth, you’ve got to be extremely good to win these races.

I’m happy to put ourselves in position and capitalize.”

Donny Schatz and Gravel shared the front row to start the 30-lap

Summer Nationals main event. They raced side-by-side down the

frontstretch with Gravel nipping Schatz at the line completing lap one

as the leader.

The red flag stopped the race with one lap completed when Tim Shaffer

flipped on the frontstretch. He was okay.

Lance Dewease raced by Brad Sweet for third on the restart. Schatz

slowed to a stop on the backstretch with two laps completed. He was

done for the night.

Gravel controlled the restart and pulled away from Dewease as Logan

Schuchart raced hard with Sweet for third.

The yellow flew again with five laps completed when Anthony Macri hit

the inside frontstretch fence. He was racing with Brock Zearfoss for

sixth spot.

A three-car crash on the restart in the second corner stopped the race

again as the red flag was displayed. Steve Buckwalter, Kraig Kinser

and Lucas Wolfe were involved. They were okay. Teams were allowed to

refuel at this time.

A single-file restart ensued with Gravel pulling away from Dewease

once again. He had a 1.5-second lead with 10 laps completed.

Sheldon Haudenschild slowed on the frontstretch bringing out the

yellow the next lap. Friday night winner Shane Stewart pitted under

the yellow and was done for the night.

Gravel continued to build his advantage to nearly a straightaway at

the half-way point as Sweet passed Dewease for second, but jumped the

cushion allowing Dewease to drive back by in turn two. The

side-by-side battle continued for second as Gravel pulled away.

Schuchart pulled a slider on Sweet for third, but Sweet returned the

pass.

Dewease finally secured second, but Gravel was 2.5 seconds ahead.

However, Danny Dietrich slowed after a big puff of smoke emerged from

his car with 22 laps completed.

It didn’t matter thought as Gravel easily controlled the final laps

scoring the win by 4.17 seconds over Dewease with Sweet, Schuchart and

Jacob Allen completing the top five.

“Williams Grove has been a really good place for me,” Gravel said. “My

first career sprint car race was here.”

“How the race track was tonight, we weren’t very good,” Dewease said.

“I got real tight after that red and Brad kept getting runs at me. We

had a good race there sliding each other. I was happy to get to

second. It was hard to pass. We had some good restarts.

Brent Marks, Brock Zearfoss, 23rd starter Carson Macedo, Macri and

Daryn Pittman rounded out the top 10.

Stewart set quick time over the 32-car field with a lap of 17.167.

Schatz, Allen, Sweet and Zearfoss won the heat races. Schatz won the

dash. Steve Buckwalter won the Last Chance Showdown.

Shultz Powers To First 410 Sprint Win For Himself And Team At Selinsgrove Saturday

Andy Haus Wins Third Of Career In Super Late Models

Jake Jones Drives From 19th To Win Roadrunner 20

7/25/20

Selinsgrove, Pa. – Jason Shultz of Carlisle scored the $3,000 Summer Championship for Modern Heritage 410 sprint cars at Selinsgrove Speedway on Saturday night, taking his first career 410 sprint win anywhere while also scoring a first for his new No. 35 race team.

A former Selinsgrove Speedway limited sprint car track champion, Shultz owns 21 career limited wins at the oval.

Andy Haus of Hamburg took the win in the Summer Championship for super late models, also pocketing $3,000 for his 25 laps of work while holding off Jeff Rine.

The victory was the third of Haus’ career at the speedway.

The Roadrunner 20 was taken by 19th starter Jake Jones.

The first lap of the 25-lap Summer Championship for super sprints was red flagged when front row starter Anthony Fiore got sideways in the third turn while running third and collected sixth starter Dylan Norris.

Shultz then started the race second and took the lead over fourth starter Mark Smith on lap one.

But before Shultz could settle into a rhythm, the yellow flag appeared on the second circuit.

Shultz restarted with Smith, Brad Howard, Kyle Reinhardt and Chase Dietz lined up behind.

Reinhardt rocketed into third when action resumed while Shultz pulled away, entering the rear of the field on the ninth circuit.

At the halfway point, Shultz was well out in front while Smith and Reinhardt raced hard for second spot.

A yellow flag with eight laps to go wiped out a near one-second lead held by Shultz and it placed Reinhardt on his tail for the new green after taking second the lap before.

Reinhardt tried to take a look down low in the first turn when green reappeared but Shultz jetted away on the cushion and had a 2.3 second lead with three laps to go when a final yellow flag bunched the field.

Shultz pulled away to the win over the final one and one-half miles of the event to take the victory by 2.064 second over Reinhardt, ninth starter Dylan Cisney, Smith and 11th starter Justin Whittall.

Sixth through 10th went to Chase Dietz, Derek Locke, Curt Stroup, Nicole Bower and Kyle Smith.

Heats went to Dietz and Norris.

The start of the super late model main was stopped when eight cars connected in the second corner on the opening lap.

Polesitter Any Haus took the lead over Tim Wilson upon the completion of the first lap with Ken Trevitz in third.

Fourth starter Jeff Rine took third on the second lap.

Haus had just entered traffic on the sixth tour when a caution flag cleared the track in front of him and Rine took second away from Wilson on the restart by darting underneath in the first corner.

Another restart on lap eight put Rine on Haus’ bumper for a restart but Haus got away and had a near two-second lead at the halfway point.

A caution flag with 10 laps to go erased a 2.056 second lead held by Haus but he built that same margin up again when action resumed by pulling away from Rine, who failed to challenge for the win.

Ninth starter Dylan Yoder rode home third followed by Brett Schadel and Jim Yoder.

Sixth through 10th went to Tim Wilson, Andrew Yoder, Donnie Schick, Hayes Mattern and Nathan Long.

Heats went to Wilson, Schadel and Kyle Knapp.

Second starter Curtis Lawton led from the start until lap 18 of the Roadrunner 20 when 19th starter Jake Jones got by for the lead and win.

Lawton had withstood numerous restarts, racing with Terry Kramer for control before Jones moved into second.

The win was Jones’ third at the track this season and he took home $1,0000 for the win.

Keith Bissinger, involved in an early race accident, came back for third.

Darren Rice and Jimmy Kessler rounded out the top five finishers.

Heats went to Will Brunson and Lawton.

Stewart Turns Back Macri To Win Williams Grove Summer Nationals First Round Friday

7/24/20

Mechanicsburg – Oklahoma’ s Shane Stewart turned away a challenge from Anthony Macri to win night one of the Champion Racing Oil Summer Nationals for the World of Outlaws Sprint Cars at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night.

The 25-lap victory was worth $8,000 to Stewart whose win was just the second of his career at the oval.

Both Stewart and Macri started the race on the front row with Stewart leading lap one before the red flag appeared on the second tour for a two-car tangle between Wayne Johnson and Landon Myers.

Third starter Daryn Pittman drove around Donny Schatz for third on the restart and then tried to close on the leaders but was unable to do so.

Stewart raced the next several laps well out in front before coming up on the rear of the field with 10 laps away, at which time both Macri and Pittman were able to close in.

The pursuing pair was within the same turn as Stewart, ready to tussle for the lead in three-car fashion when a caution flag unfurled with 12 laps completed for a stopped Brian Montieth.

Macri went to work at the new green and pulled a big slide job on Stewart as the pair entered the first corner to take control but Stewart dropped off of the cushion to reclaim the point as the pair raced onto the backchute.

At the same time, Donny Schatz got by Pittman for third, poised to challenge the front runners when a final yellow flag came out with nine laps to go, this time for a slowing Lance Dewease, who had been running fifth.

Schatz got under Macri for second on the restart and held the spot through lap 17 before Macri pulled another slide job in the first turn, this time to reclaim second spot.

But again, Macri was unable to hold the spot and he watched as Schatz went back around for the position.

Stewart was just beginning to come up on the rear of the field once more when the checkers fell on the field, allowing him to take the win by 1.599 seconds over Schatz.

Macri faded to third followed by Pittman and 10th starter Brock Zearfoss.

Sixth through 10th went to David Gravel, Brad Sweet, 21st starter Logan Schuchart, Carson Macedo and 24th starter Sheldon Haudenschild.

“I wouldn’t have guessed that our first win as a team would come at this racetrack,” said Stewart of his Indy Parts No. 71 racer.

“There is no better feeling. I haven’t had a lot of success here. I’ve had good runs but haven’t been able to capitalize on the success.”

Heats went to Dewease, Gravel, Stewart and Pittman with Stewart claiming the dash and Schuchart winning the B Main.

Dewease set fast time over the 35-car field with a lap of 17.025 seconds.

Feature Finish, 7/24/20:

410 sprints, 25 laps: 1. Shane Stewart, 2. Donny Schatz, 3. Anthony Macri, 4. Daryn Pittman, 5. Brock Zearfoss, 6. David Gavel, 7. Brad Sweet, 8. Logan Schuchart, 9. Carson Macedo, 10.

SHELDON HAUDENSCHILD SCORES ONE FOR THE OUTLAWS WITH FIRST CAREER LINCOLN VICTORY

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Saturday, July 25 (7:00pm) Lucas Oil Pro Pulling League: Tractor & Truck Pull

Wednesday, July 29 (7:30pm) Drydene 40 for 410 Sprints

Saturday, August 1 (7:30) DCS SCHOOL OF DRIVING NIGHT: 410 Sprints + 358 Sprints + Classic Cars

Abbottstown, PA (July 23, 2020) – Going into Thursday night’s Gettysburg Clash, Sheldon Haudenschild’s best finish at Lincoln was eighth. Not only was Haudenschild searching for his first career Lincoln victory, he was also vying for his first World of Outlaw win of 2020. Sheldon crossed both items off his check list with his $10,000 Gettysburg Clash victory.

After winning the dash, Haudenschild started on the pole of the 35-lap feature. Jacob Allen lined up second and got under Sheldon going down the backstretch as the two battled for the lead on the first lap. Allen won the race back to the flag stand and led lap 1.

The yellow flag came out on the first lap for Jeff Halligan who got spun around in turn 4. Alan Krimes also spun out as he avoided Halligan’s stopped car.

Allen opted for the inside on the double-file restart. Jacob went to the top in turn 1 as Sheldon tried the bottom. Allen held on to the lead over Haudenschild.

David Gravel was running fifth and wanted Parker Price-Miller’s fourth spot. Gravel slid up the track in front of Price-Miller in turns 3 and 4 to take the spot on lap 4.

As the leaders approached lapped traffic Haudenschild worked the bottom of turns 1 and 2 to reel in Allen.

With Allen and Haudenschild working through heavy lapped traffic Freddie Rahmer caught the leaders. Gravel who was running fourth was also closing in.

Sheldon was using the entire track to try and get by Jacob as Gravel got by Rahmer for third.

Allen and Haudenschild were side by side at the line on lap 15 with Sheldon getting the slight advantage for the lead.

Gravel tried to jump on the opportunity to take second from Allen, but the red flag came out on lap 19. Daryn Pittman was upside down in turn 2. Pittman had been running tenth.

Pittman’s crew were able to make repairs to the #83 in the work are and Pittman rejoined the field.

Haudenschild opted to start on the inside with Allen lined up to his outside. Gravel, Freddie and Logan Schuchart made up the rest of the top five on the restart.

Rahmer, Schuchart and Price-Miller were three wide going into turn 1 for fourth with Schuchart taking the spot from Rahmer. Freddie got fourth back from Logan on the following lap.

Danny Dietrich who started 14th was up to sixth as the front of the field entered lapped traffic on lap 24.

The caution flag flew again on lap 24. This time it was for Chase Dietz who got turned around in turns 3 and 4.

Once again Haudenschild elected to restart on the inside. On the restart a three wide battle for third between Rahmer, Schuchart and Dietrich. After contact in turn 1 the caution came out again as Rahmer shot up to the stop of the track collecting Brock Zearfoss.

With contact on the double-file restart, the field lined up for a single restart behind the leader, Haudenschild.

Schuchart got by Gravel to move into third. That left Gravel to fend off Dietrich as he challenged for the fourth spot.

Haudenschild caught the tail end of the field with five laps to go. The yellow flag flew again on lap 33 when Dietrich hit the wall in turn 4 ending his night.

With less than five laps to go, the field lined up for another single file restart. Haudenschild led Allen, Schuchart, Gravel and Price-Miller.

Carson Macedo got by Price-Miller to enter the top five with one lap to go.

Haudenschild won the Gettysburg Clash by 2.416 seconds over Schuchart who made a last lap pass on Allen for the runner up spot. Allen crossed the line third and Gravel finished fourth. Macedo finished fifth completing a sweep of the top five by the Outlaws.

Heat winners were Freddie Rahmer, Sheldon Haudenschild, Jeff Halligan and Parker Price-Miller.

This Saturday, July 25, Lincoln Speedway is back in action with the Lucas Pro Pulling League. Action starts at 7PM with pit gates open at 4:30PM and grandstand gates opening at 5PM. A quick turn around finds the 410 sprints competing in the $10,000 to win Drydene 40 on Wednesday, July 29.

Kyle Larson Grabs the Bull By the Horn to Pick Up Bob Weikert Memorial Finale

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Penn.- Standing in victory lane surrounded by photographers, well-wishers, family and crewmembers, Kyle Larson wondered out loud about the trophy he was about to receive.

“Where’s that bull and do we get both of those,” asked Larson, talking about the prize only matched in stature by the $15,000 payday coming his way too. “Damn that thing looks awesome! It’s going to look great in the trophy case!”

With the family of the legendary Bob Weikert presenting it, Larson literally and figuratively grabbed the bull by the horns as he completed a weekend sweep of the Bob Weikert Memorial, presented by Folkens Brothers Trucking and sponsored by Packers Concessions, at the Port Royal Speedway with the Ollies Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions Sunday night.

The win was worth $10,000, plus a $5000 bonus offered by the track for the overall winner of the two-day event and was Larson’s third consecutive at Port Royal dating back to the PA Speedweek finale. It made for a total of $26,029 combined earnings from two nights of racing.

“I was honestly a little worried the whole race, but I felt like once I got to the lead if I hit my marks good enough I’d be ok,” said Larson “We’re on a pretty good streak here and it was my goal this week to win one of those trophies and I’m happy to be standing here in front of these great fans.”

However, it did not come easy. Australian Kerry Madsen and World of Outlaws regular Carson Macedo led the field to the green flag with Madsen jumping out to the early lead. Macedo got a run on the top of the speedway in turn three and he pulled ahead to lead the first lap by a car length.

Meanwhile, fifth-place starter Aaron Reutzel was on the move early as he moved into third exiting turn two the following lap. Two laps later he used the high side in turns one and two to get by Madsen for the runner-up position and started tracking down Macedo.

Larson, who started sixth, followed suit behind Reutzel and he moved into third as well. Macedo held a near 2.0 second advantage at the time, but by lap seven Reutzel had nearly cut the advantage in half by running just off the wall at both ends of the speedway.

Reutzel threw a slide job attempt at Macedo entering turn one, but Macedo crossed back under to regain the lead on lap 8 and two laps later with the two nose to tail, Larson slid under both of them to take the lead for the first time of the night.

Macedo crossed back under him down the backstretch, but Larson had the momentum and he slid under the driver of his World of Outlaws team to hold the lead at the flag stand for lap 10. Reutzel followed into second and 10th place starter Lance Dewease threw his hat into the mix of things by taking the third spot.

One lap later Macedo’s hopes of picking up the victory ended as he came to a stop on the backstretch with a flat right-rear tire. He would rejoin the field after changing tires in the pits.

“I was working really hard to get around Aaron and I drove it in there pretty hard trying to get into second and we managed to go third to first,” said Larson. “I didn’t know what was going on with Carson, but I knew we had to get out front before Aaron.”

When green flag action returned, Larson jumped out to the lead again, while Dewease was able to duck under Reutzel entering turn three to pull into the runner-up spot at the line. Fifth-place starter Danny Dietrich, flying the legendary Weikert #29 colors, moved into the fourth position while eighth-place starter Jacon Allen moved into fifth.

Four laps later Reutzel used the top of the speedway again to fly back around Dewease to regain the runner-up spot and with Larson in lap traffic on lap 17, he began putting pressure on the leader. By lap 19 Reutzel had cut the distance in half and was using every inch of the speedway, banging his right rear off the fence multiple times along the way.

Larson was struggling to pass the lap car of Macedo and Reutzel attempted to pull a slider in turn three on lap 20, but Larson sped away on the top of the speedway before the caution waved for a slowing Sheldon Haudenschild on lap 23.

Larson once again sped away at the green flag, with Dewease overtaking Reutzel again for the lead. Two laps later Reutzel’s night would come to an end after a broken rear end that came after continuously slapping the wall on the top of the track.

Ninth-place starter Anthony Macri moved onto the podium after a return to green flag racing on the backstretch before the final caution of the event flew with three to go due Madsen shredding a right rear tire. The field was brought to an open-red flag for fuel in the meantime as well.

With three laps standing between him and victory, Larson wouldn’t be denied as he raced out to the lead again on the restart. Dewease was left to fend off Macri as Larson took the checkered flag by a margin of 1.350 second at the line.

Dewease, Macri, Dietrich and Allen made up the top-five while David Gravel, Brent Marks, Daryn Pittman, Ryan Smith and Dylan Cisney rounded out the top-ten.

“My car was just really good, and I could pace myself out front which was really nice.” Said Larson. “Aaron was running really there the first 10 laps. Once he broke and Lance moved into second, I knew he was running somewhere different than me and I did not really know what to do. But I knew as long as I didn’t see his nose, I was going to be ok.”

For Dewease, it was an improvement from the last few weeks in competition for him and his Kreitz Racing team, but he felt Larson was just the better car.

“After not being able to pass anyone last night, we were a lot better tonight but we’re only about three quarters to where we need to be,” said Dewease. “I wanted to let Kyle know that I was there that last restart and maybe get him nervous, but he’s just too good for that and we’ll take a second and work to get better.”

Heat race wins went to Allen, Marks, Cisney and Steve Buckwalter and were all worth $100 courtesy of Pro Lawn LLC of Liverpool, Pa and Sheldon Haudenschild earned $200 courtesy of Packer’s Concessions and Del Shank earlier in the night for setting fast time.

Other awards included a $500 bonus courtesy of the track for Dewease as the highest finishing top-20 points driver in the field, a $700 hard charger award for Brent Marks (+15) courtesy of Valley Supply and Mike Cleck Paving, while Sammy Swindell picked up a $100 Hard Luck bonus after dropping out early courtesy of Eric Ort and Scotty Schatz Motorsports.

Kyle Larson Picks Up Bob Weikert Memorial Opener

PORT ROYAL, Pa. (July 18, 2020) - Kyle Larson’s weekend in the Keystone State has been prosperous, to say the least, first claiming the Tommy Hinnershitz Classic at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday, July 17, then topping that prestigious open wheel triumph with a $10,000 victory during night one of Port Royal Speedway’s annual Bob Weikert Memorial featuring the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1.

Larson, who now owns a Series-leading nine All Star Circuit of Champions victories in 2020, started seventh on the Bob Weikert Memorial grid and rallied in a hurry, climbing his way to third just after a single-file restart with only ten laps checked off the counter, then taking second from former track champion, Logan Wagner, at the midpoint of the 30-lap program. At the time, Brent Marks was in charge of the top spot, using his outside-front row starting spot to garner the lead during the initial start.

With traffic acting as a moving roadblock, Larson was able to track down the leader by lap 17, racing to the back bumper of the CJB Motorsports entry before challenging Marks for the top spot two circuits later. An eventual drag race to the flagstand ended in Marks’ favor.

Beat by a nose at the line, Larson redeemed himself the following circuit and made the next move count, eventually slingshotting around Marks at the exit of turn four, narrowly squeezing by the former Outlaw and a lapped car while navigating the very topside of the speedway. The bold move was the winning move for the Elk Grove, California-native, gradually escaping to a lengthy advantage before the final checkers made their appearance.

The All Star victory was Larson’s fourth in four consecutive tries.

“It’s definitely an honor to win this race. Over the last few weeks, I’ve had a lot of people compare this run that we’re on to Doug Wolfgang. I never got the chance to watch him race, but I knew he was a legend. To read about all of his wins, and the places that he won at, is pretty unbelievable,” Kyle Larson said in victory lane, driver of the Paul Silva-owned/Finley Farms/Tarlton and Sons/Durst/Lucas Oil/Glenn Styres Racing/Priority Aviation/No. 57 sprint car. “Port Royal is starting to become one of my favorite tracks. And the atmosphere here is right up there with the Knoxville Nationals. We still have one more night to go, so hopefully we can park back up here in victory lane.”

Brent Marks held on to finish second at Port Royal Speedway, followed by Anthony Macri, Logan Wagner and Lance Dewease.

“My car was really, really good,” Larson continued. “I saw Brent (Marks) and Logan (Wagner) battling right before the last caution and I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to get by them. Thankfully, Logan was kinda searching for grip which allowed me to gain some momentum on the top and get around him. Then I was able to track Brent down in traffic. I could run about 80-90% and still take care of my tires. The last time I won here, my tires were pretty beat up because I was spinning them so bad. Tonight I just focused on trying to keep my wheel spin down. I’m glad it paid off.”

No Clear Favorite Entering Event With Exception Of True Outlaw Larson

Friday and Saturday events offer 8K and 20K to win

7/19/20

Mechanicsburg – The Champion Racing Oil World of Outlaws Sprint Cars Summer Nationals will take place this week at Williams Grove Speedway, slated for Friday and Saturday, July 24 and 25 at 7:30 pm.

The outlaws sprint cars will roll into Williams Grove Speedway for the two-day summer stand to battle the Pennsylvania Posse sprint car stars for the first time this season.

Both nights of this year’s Summer Nationals shows will include full programs of time trials, heats and feature events.

The July 24 outlaws-posse match will feature a 25-lap main paying $8,000 to win while the July 25 Saturday finale Champion Racing Oil Summer Nationals feature will offer $20,000 to the winner.

Adult general admission for each day of the Williams Grove outlaws program is set at $30 with youth ages 13 – 20 priced at $15. Kids ages 12 and under are always admitted for FREE at Williams Grove Speedway.

Just who will be leading the outlaws drivers when they hit Williams Grove this week remains to be seen.

Current series point leader Brad Sweet has been running a string of bad luck during his last several performances in series action and instead former Grove regular, Hanover native Logan Schuchart has been flexing some muscle.

Schuchart and his Bobby Allen-owned No. 1S machine have five total season wins to date including victories at Jackson Motorplex and Terre Haute while true outlaw Kyle Larson has recorded four to date as well including in the Brad Doty Classic at Attica, Ohio on July 14.

Sweet has been held winless since July 4 although his last win was his seventh of the year.

Of two total on the year, David Gravel’s most recent win was at Wilmot Raceway on July 11.

And just as no one has been dominant on the outlaws tour so far this season, there have been no repeat, regular competition winners in Williams Grove weekly action to date in 2020.

Wins have gone to Carson Macedo, Lance Dewease and Steve Buckwalter with Dewease leading season points. Kyle Larson has won twice but is not a track regular.

And so, the 2020 Williams Grove Summer Nationals will take the green flag with no clear favorite this time around save for the fact that true outlaw Larson of Elk Grove, California has to be considered a favorite wherever he races these days, IF he chooses to enter the event.

Since May 8, Larson has won 20 of 37 starts that he has made in either a sprint car or a midget to go along with eight runner-up finishes.

Last year, Tim Shaffer picked up the Friday Summer Nationals win while Donny Schatz took home the 20K payday on Saturday night.

Schatz has two wins on the outlaws season this year but he does sit a very, very close second to Sweet in the standings.

Summer Nationals sponsor Champion Brands Champion Racing Oil offers a wide variety of quality racing lubricants, oils, performance additives and fluids at outlets across the nation and online.

On the web, products can be purchased via Smileys Racing Products, Precise Racing Products and Speedway Motors along with many other internet-based companies.

LINCOLN SPEEDWAY

Abbottstown, PA

MACEDO WIRES THE FIELD FOR $10,000 OUTLAW TUNE-UP WIN; Mitten Victorious in Sportsman’s Return to Lincoln; Drevicki Bests Midget Field for Victory

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Thursday, July 23 (7:30pm) World of Outlaws Gettysburg Clash presented by Drydene

Saturday, July 25 (7:00pm) Lucas Oil Pro Pulling League: Tractor & Truck Pull

Wednesday, July 29 (7:30pm) Drydene 40 for 410 Sprints

Abbottstown, PA (July 18, 2020) – World of Outlaws regular, Carson Macedo, invaded the pigeon hills on Saturday night and led all 35-laps of the Outlaw tune-up to pocket $10,000. The World of Outlaws will be in action at Lincoln for the Gettysburg Clash this coming Thursday, July 23 and Macedo is poised to be a threat to score a win for the Outlaws as they take on the PA Posse.

Macedo inherited the pole for the start of the event after scheduled pole-sitter, Brandon Rahmer, scratched for the night after experiencing engine issues after winning the dash.

Brandon’s brother, Freddie, started second and was the lone Posse member to start within the first two rows. Outlaw drivers, Daryn Pittman and Logan Schuchart shared the second row.

Macedo led the field into turn 1 running the bottom with Rahmer trying out the top side of the track. Schuchart moved up to third with Ryan Smith driving to fourth and Pittman settling into fifth.

Schuchart worked on reeling Rahmer in for second as both drivers used the high side to get around the 3/8th mile oval.

Brian Montieth challenged Pittman for fifth as Macedo entered lapped traffic on lap 6.

Rahmer and Schuchart caught Macedo in lapped traffic but just as they were making ground, Macedo started to pull away.

The yellow flag flew on lap 15 for Montieth and Tim Wagaman when the two got together in turn 4. Wagaman’s crew took advantage of the work period and got the car back out on the track.

Macedo paced the field for the single file restart with Rahmer, Schuchart, Smith and Pittman lined up behind him.

Rahmer tried the bottom on the restart with Macedo going to the top into turn 1. Smith and Schuchart raced side by side down the backstretch for third with Schuchart holding the advantage at the line.

Another caution came on lap 18. This time it was for Adam Wilt who came to a stop on the backstretch.

Once again Macedo led Rahmer, Schuchart, Smith and Pittman for the restart with Jacob Allen looking to make his way into the top five while restarting sixth.

Rahmer tried the bottom again this time trying a slide job on Macedo in turns 1 and 2 for the lead. It was to no avail as Macedo held onto the top spot.

Schuchart used the bottom in turns 1 and 2 to reel Rahmer in to start a battle for second. Smith was on Schuchart’s heel and made it a three car battle for second.

Smith got under Schuchart for third going into turn 3 on lap 24 but Logan beat him back to the line by a nose to hold on to the position.

Smith got back by Schuchart on the next lap and this time he beat him back to the flag stand to take the spot. Schuchart didn’t go away quietly and briefly took third back down the backstretch but Smith held the position at the line.

Lapped traffic came back into play on lap 27 for Macedo and the leaders.

Smith caught Rahmer and took second with 5 laps to go. Schuchart followed sending Rahmer to fourth.

Schuchart made quick work of Smith to take second and started to hunt down Macedo.

Logan threw everything he had at Macedo on the last lap going into turn 1 but Macedo pulled away and never looked back.

Macedo beat Schuchart to the checkered flag by .442 seconds to take the $10,000 prize and score his second win at the track. Smith crossed the line third and Rahmer held on to fourth. Pittman completed the top five.

Heat winners were Brian Montieth, Daryn Pittman, Matt Campbell & Brandon Rahmer. Brian Montieth set quick time over the 35-car field with a lap of 13.653 seconds.

Mitten Victorious in Sportsman’s Return to Lincoln

The winged Super Sportsman last raced at Lincoln in 2017. On Saturday night they were back in action as part of their Touring Series.

Russ Mitten lined up on the pole of the 20-lap feature with John Edkin sharing the front row.

Mitten took the lead when the green flag dropped with Luke Deatrick and Edkin battling side by side for second.

Kenny Edkin was up to third at the line on lap 1 after starting the feature sixth. Edkin was victorious in the first four stops of the touring series so far in 2020.

Kenny made quick work of John to take second on the next lap. Scott Dellinger was up to fourth from his seventh starting spot and had his eyes set on taking third from John.

Kenny Edkin was working on reeling in Mitten to challenge him for the race lead when the caution came out on lap 8 for Adam Wray. Wray had spun out in turns 3 and 4.

Kenny, John, Dellinger and Frankie Herr lined up behind Mitten for the single file restart.

Mitten and Kenny both went to the bottom in turn 1 as that was the preferred line around the track.

Kenny was on Mitten's bumper at the half way point of the race trying to take the lead from the six-time Lincoln feature winner.

The yellow flag came out on lap 11 for Tyler Wolford and Jay Fannasy who got turned around in turns 1 and 2. Both drivers were able to rejoin the field.

The leaders dove to the bottom going into turn 1 again on the restart.

Dellinger was working on getting his nose under John for third and the two were side by side at the line on lap 14 for the spot with John holding on to the position.

Another caution came on lap 14. This time it was for Doug Holler who got spun around in turn 4.

Mitten was able to pull away from Kenny down the backstretch but Edkin would close the gap in the corners.

Herr got by Dellinger for fourth coming out of turn 1 with five laps to go.

Kenny had closed the gap and was in position to make a move for the lead on Mitten with two laps to go. Mitten worked hard to stay on the bottom to take the line away from Edkin.

Mitten beat Kenny to the checkered flag by .413 seconds. John crossed the line third. Herr, the all-time leader in Sportsman wins at the track, finished fourth. Dellinger completed the top five.

Heat winners were Scott Dellinger and Russ Mitten.

Drevicki Bests Midget Field for Victory

Steve Drevicki added his name to the prestigious list of midget winners at Lincoln with his win on Saturday night. The list includes P
