SELINSGROVE, Pa. – TJ Stutts of Liverpool clinched his first-ever sprint car track championship Saturday night at Selinsgrove Speedway with his fifth victory of the year in the 25-lap main event for 360 sprint cars.

The $2,000 win was his fourth in a row and 25th career at the track at the wheel of the Wise Motorsports No. 23-M.

Jeff Rine of Danville also scored his fifth victory of the year and the 96th of his career at Selinsgrove in the 25-lap late model feature. The win helped Rine stretch his lead in the points chase over three-time winner Steve Campbell of Danville.

Points leader Andrew Shoop of Mifflintown notched his third win of the year in the 12-lap pro stock race.

Selinsgrove Speedway will be dark Saturday, Sept. 5. The track’s next race will be the World of Outlaws Late Model Series-sanctioned 17th Annual National Open for super late models at 7 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 6, sponsored by Jeff’s Auto Body & Recycling Center.

Pre-race entertainment featuring the popular Frank Wicher Band will take place at the grandstand entrance from 1-4 p.m. Sunday before track gates open at 4 p.m.

Polesitter Steve Collins powered into the lead at the start of the sprint car feature. Collins was chased by second-place starter Kevin Albert for the first two laps until third-place starter Brian Nornhold took over the runner-up position.

On the 12th circuit, Nornhold made a pass for the lead in turn two as eighth-place starter TJ Stutts stormed into second. A lap later, Stutts took command of the field following an close three-car battle with Nornhold and Collins.

The red flag unfurled on lap 15 when Jim Shuster took a hard crash in turns three and four. Although no injuries were reported, Shuster was transported to an area hospital as a precautionary measure.

When the race resumed, Stutts held the front spot ahead of seventh-place starter Jason Shultz. The final caution flag slowed the field on lap 21 when Eric Tomecek’s car rolled to a stop in turn two.

Stutts led the rest of the way and posted a 2.5-second margin of victory over Shultz, sixth-place starter Ryan Kissinger, Collins, and 10th-place starter Nate Snyder.

Second-place starter Danny Snyder led the first two laps of the late model feature. On a lap three restart, fourth-place starter Steve Campbell took the lead with an inside pass on the frontstretch.

On another restart on lap five, sixth-place starter Jeff Rine pulled into the lead with an outside pass in turns one and two. The red flag waved on lap 8 for a crash on the backstretch involving Dave Brouse Sr. and Donnie Schick. Both drivers escaped injury.

When the race went back to green, fifth-place starter Coleby Frye took over second and set his sights on Rine. Following several more restarts, Rine was able to keep his car in front of the pack as a duel for second heated up between Frye and Campbell. At the finish, Rine was victorious by 2.7 seconds over Frye, Campbell, third-place starter Dan Stone,and seventh-place starter Jim Yoder.

Second-place starter Nate Stroup pulled into the lead at the start of the pro stock feature. N. Stroup led through lap seven when his tagged the wall in turn four and allowed 10th-place starter Andrew Shoop to drive underneath him for the lead. A lap later, 18th-place starter Brad Mitch charged into the runner-up position.

On the last lap, seventh-place starter Dave Brouse Jr. made a charge into the second spot, only to have his car disqualified during the post-race technical inspection. Shoop took the checkered flag over Mitch, who was awarded the second position. N. Stroup, Jake Buck, and AJ Stroup, who rebounded from a flat tire earlier in the race, rounded out the top five.

Hodnett, Smith Jr. and Trout Score Port Royal Aug. 29 Mains

8/29/15

Port Royal – Greg Hodnett won his sixth sprint car feature of the season on Saturday night at Port Royal Speedway, using a locked-down racecar to blast through the field for the $3,200 victory, the 42nd of his career at the oval.

Tim Smith Jr. of Long Hollow drove to his second win of the year in the super late model main, driving by Matt Parks for the win.

And in the super sportsman main, Chad Trout won his first ever division feature at the track.

Hodnett started seventh in the 25-lap sprint car main while Brock Zearfoss took the green flag and lead from the pole.

Zearfoss would set the early pacer over Rick Lafferty before Lance Dewease motored by for second on the sixth tour.

Hodnett got by Lafferty for third a lap later and was stalking the top two when the leaders entered the backmarkers on the ninth lap.

Dewease fell victim to Hodnett for second with 15 laps to go before the yellow flag came out for a Wayne Dadetto spin a lap later.

Hodnett just simply drove right by Zearfoss on the restart to begin his run to the checkers.

Another yellow, this time for a spinning Blane Heimbach on the 14th lap, was the only thing that hindered Hodnett during the run to the finish.

Dewease stayed close only for a lap after the race restarted before Hodnett pulled out to a 3.899 second win.

Eighth starter Lucas Wolfe drove up to third at the finish followed by Dylan Cisney and Davey Sammons.

Sixth through 10 th went to Zearfoss, Mike Wagner, Lafferty, 21st starter Mike Erdley and Ryan Taylor.

Heats went to Wolfe, Mike Wagner and Hodnett.

The start of the 22-lap late model main saw Scott Flickinger and Devin Friese connect in the third turn, producing a complete restart.

Flickinger’s crash moved Matt Parks to the pole for the new green and Parks took the lead when action started.

Tim Wilson trailed Parks with Tim Smith Jr. third on the first laps before Smith took second on the second lap.

Parks was using the low side of the speedway with the lead while Smith used the middle and top and it was that lane that he used to drive by Parks for control on the fifth circuit.

Point leader Mike Lupfer, who started seventh, made big advances during the early going to take third on the sixth tour and then second a lap later.

But once in second he couldn’t muster a challenge for the win, instead finishing .695 seconds back as the pair worked traffic during the final half of the race.

Wilson was third followed by Parks and Trent Brenneman.

Sixth through 10th went to Mitch Hack, Jeff Miller, Steve Stitt, Nick Dickson and Travis Dillman.

Heats went to Lupfer and Brenneman.

Bobby Hockenberry led the first four laps of the 20-lap super sportsman main before sixth starter Kevin Nouse blasted into control.

Nouse was pulling away on the seventh lap when he suddenly slowed and gave up the race.

Fourth starter Chad Trout was racing second for the restart with Hockenberry again at the point.

After the yellow flag for Nouse’s stopped car, Trout zipped into the lead when action resumed to speed to the victory of nearly a half lap advantage, some 6.685 seconds ahead.

Gregg Foster was third followed by Scott Dellinger and Russ Mitten.

Sixth through 10th went to Frankie Herr, Tony Jackson, Rich Eichelberger, Mike Enders and Jay Fannasy.

Heats went to Ken Edkin and Rich Eichelberger.

LINCOLN SPEEDWAY

Abbottstown, PA

APPLE CHRYSLER/DODGE/JEEP/RAM OF HANOVER NIGHT

UPCOMING EVENTS:

Sat., September 5th, 2015 (7 PM) - J.L. Howard Memorial: 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints, Super Sportsman plus FIREWORKS – (***Final points race for 410 Sprints***) (Trail-Way/Lincoln “Shootout” weekend for 358 Sprints)

BRANDON RAHMER HOLDS OFF MONTIETH TO SCORE FIRST CAREER WIN AT LINCOLN;

Ralph Morgan claims first Lincoln win in 358 late models; Kory Sites best of street stocks

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 8/29/2015 –Another historic night at Lincoln Speedway saw the next generation of Rahmers pull into victory lane, as Brandon Rahmer held off the late-race challenges of Lincoln points leader Brian Montieth to score his first career “410” sprint car win.

“I was trying to run my ass off to keep away from them,” said Rahmer when asked whether he knew if Montieth and 12th-starting Danny Dietrich were running second and third behind him, “I kept my speed up top. I didn’t know if Brian had enough to slide up in front of me going into three. That’s how Danny (Dietrich) got me the other two times I was in the front here. But I finally got to stand up here.”

“I was lucky enough to draw a good pill and start up front for the feature and it finally paid off,” added Rahmer.

Handicapping placed the Rahmer brothers on the outside of the front two rows for the feature. Polesitter Steve Owings took the lead at the outset and led the first two laps, with Freddie dropping back to fifth at outset and Robbie Kendall and Tim Glatfelter moving into third and fourth.

Brandon caught Owings for the lead on lap three and led the rest of the way, with plenty of action in behind. Freddie recovered to advance to second after catching Owings on lap eight.

As the Rahmer brothers led, tenth-starting Brian Montieth and leading Lincoln feature winner and 12th-starting Danny Dietrich were methodically working their way through the field.

Montieth caught Grasso for third on lap 12 and chased down Freddie by the 17th lap. He and Freddie made contact exiting turn four of that lap, pitching Freddie into the outside guardrail on the front stretch and ending Freddie’s night. Also caught up in the crash was fourth-place Grasso and Randy Bachman.

Montieth never stopped and assumed second for the restart, with Owings third and Dietrich fourth. One lap later, Dietrich disposed of Owings and made it a three-car race to the checkered.

Though he pulled alongside several times, Montieth was never able to get by the Miller Brothers Chevrolet/Wege Pretzels/ARAN Trading #88. Rahmer’s final margin of victory was .53 seconds, with Dietrich a close third, Owings fourth, and Friday night Williams Grove winner Austin Hogue fifth.

Rounding out the top ten were 20th-starting Gerard McIntyre, Jr., Kendall, Cory Haas, 19th-starting Alan Krimes, and 22nd-starting Jimmy Siegel.

Heats for the 26 410’s were won by Montieth, Kyle Moody, and Kendall, with Krimes winning the consolation.

Mt. Union’s Ralph Morgan scored his eighth win of the year in the “358” late model feature event, crossing a convincing 3.53 seconds ahead of Shaun Jones. It was the first career Lincoln win for Morgan, who has already won five races at Hesston and a race each at Hagerstown and Path Valley this year.

Gene Knaub was third, with Eric Irvin and Cam Zeigler completing the top five.

The event was marred by a 14-car pile-up which blocked the track in turn three of the first lap.

Heats for the 26 358 Late Models were won by Morgan, Brad Shank, and Shaun Jones, with Dan Zechman winning the consolation.

Kory Sites claimed his first win in five years in the 20-lap street stock feature. Sites, who came out of retirement by running a few events last year, started on the front row and followed polesitter Jason Townsend for the first three laps. He wrestled the lead on lap four and held off Mike Potts over the final 15 laps.

Third through fifth were Doug Bennett, Bob Scott, Jr., and Michelle Walls.

Heats for the 26 Street Stocks were won by Townsend, Sites, and Bennett.

Next Saturday night, September 5th at 7 PM, Lincoln will host the J.L. Howard Memorial featuring the final point race of the season for the Lawrence Chevrolet 410 Sprints. In addition, the 358 Sprints will be competing in another Trail-Way/Lincoln “Shootout” weekend event. Rounding out the evening will be the Super Sportsman and FIREWORKS.

Central PA 358 Point Series presented by Capitol Renegade

This weekend the Central PA 358 Point Series presented by Capitol Renegade hosted two series races on Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway and Trail Way Speedway. At Trail Way Cody Fletcher would pick up his 2nd career feature win over Issac Sneeringer and Brad McClelland. At Williams Grove Speedway Adrian Shaffer made it 3 for 3 in 2015 with another last lap pass, this time on Kevin Nouse to claim the 20 lap feature event. Series point leader Doug Hammaker would come home in 7th place and would loose a few points to McClelland with only a handful of races left in the 2015 racing season.

Next week will be a very big one for the Central PA 358 Point Series presented by Capitol Renegade. Three races will be held at the three regular race tracks that host the series on consecutive nights. Friday night will see the series make a stop at Trail Way Speedway, Saturday night the series will move to Lincoln Speedway, and Sunday night the series moves to Williams Grove Speedway which host the Billy Kimmel Memorial which will host the final race in the Nouse Signs and Graphics Summer Series. That race will carry double points on Sunday night as did all the other Summer Series races. So race teams will be able to score points in all three races this weekend. One driver could walk away with 240 points if he can sweep the weekend. Doug Hammaker has a 139 point lead heading into next weekend so anything can happen.

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

1. Doug Hammaker - 966 Pts.(5 wins) 2. Brad McClelland - 827 Pts. (7 wins) 3. Matt Campbell - 758 Pts. (2 wins) 4.Isaac Sneeringer -639 Pts. (5 wins) 5. Cody Fletcher - 638 Pts. ( 2 win) 6.

Hogue And Shaffer Use Last Lap Passes For Williams Grove Sprint Wins

8/28/15

Mechanicsburg – A pair of last lap passes netted sprint car wins at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night for drivers Austin Hogue and Adrian Shaffer.

For Hogue, the victory was a career first at the historic oval in the 410 sprint division while Shaffer notched his second win of the season in the 358 sprint class.

Hogue started second in the 25-lap 410 sprint car feature and led from the beginning with Cory Haas moving into second on the second tour.

The race was slowed moments later for a three-car entanglement in the fourth corner involving Pat Cannon, Jordan Givler and Troy Fraker.

The final 23 laps of the event went non stop with Haas chasing Hogue throughout until the leader by his own admission got sucked into the first turn cushion with nine laps to go, forcing him to swing wide into the corners and also allowing Haas to drive by for the win.

The West York driver had been staying close enough to Hogue to easily capitalize on the miscue however Hogue was not done in his quest for a first career victory.

After a lap or two that allowed him to get his wheels back underneath, Hogue tracked Haas down to also be within striking distance and another miscue on the cushion, this time by Haas as he ran up on Cannon to put him a lap down, set up a wild finish.

When Cannon bobbled on the fourth turn cushion, it forced Haas to backpedal and that allowed Hogue to drop down and run underneath Haas back to the white flag, with Haas scoring the lap by just half of his car’s length with Hogue directly beside him.

And as the pair raced into the first corner, Haas broke low for a sweep thru the turns while Hogue went to the cushion for a sweep and that move netted him control as the pair raced onto the backchute.

Haas was close enough as the pair entered the third turn to pull a big old slide job in an attempt to again get the lead and win but Hogue anticipated the move perfectly to already be turning his car off of the cushion before Haas even completed his glide up across the track.

And with that turn of the car set up perfectly while Haas was sliding sideways, Hogue drove forward to again take the lead back from Haas off of the fourth corner to pick up the exciting win by .410 seconds.

Sixth starter Steve Buckwalter rode home a stout third followed by 10th starter Greg Hodnett and Danny Dietrich.

Sixth through 10th went to Brian Montieth, Brent Marks, Brock Zearfoss, Frankie Herr and Lance Dewease.

Heats went to Haas, Jay Reichard and Montieth.

Cody Fairchok would lead 16 laps of the 20-lap 358 sprint main before ninth starter Kevin Nouse took over on a restart after getting by a well-running Adrian Shaffer for second on the ninth tour.

Nouse seemed to be in good shape when a final of three yellow flags appeared with just two laps to go.

Nouse pulled away from Shaffer on the restart and again seemed headed for his first win of the year and then suddenly as he raced toward the white flag his whole night changed thanks to a flipped up front wing.

With his front wing flipped upside down on the hood of the car, unsettling his momentum as he shot down the frontstretch, Shaffer used a full head of steam to blast around Nouse in the first corner to steal the win away on the final circuit.

Nouse limped home second followed by 11th starter Chase Dietz, Matt Campbell and Fairchok.

Sixth through 10th went to Chandler Leiby, Doug Hammaker, Rich Eichelberger, Matt Findley and Nyle Berkes.

Heats went to Todd Reed, Kyle Denmyer and Fairchok.

TODD SHAFFER WINS LINCOLN “LEGENDS OF THE SPORT” FEATURE;

DIETRICH CLAIMS $10,000 WINNER TAKE ALL $10,000 IN 410 SHOOTOUT;

Phil Walter holds off Hammaker for 358 sprint car win

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 8/26/2015 – Technically, it was his sixth Lincoln win and the 197th of his storied career. But Lincoln Speedway and Fred Rahmer Promotions will let it to the pundits as to whether it counts.

But for Todd Shaffer, his win in Wednesday night’s “Legends of Central PA Sprint Car Racing” feature event was one that he will cherish for the rest of his days.

Second heat winner Kenny Adams of Malibar, Florida drew a zero pill for the inversion and led the first 10 laps of the feature event, losing a sizeable lead over Shaffer and the rest of the field when the competition yellow came out at the half-way point for what many drivers called an “oxygen break.”

On the 11th-lap restart, Adams bounced off the outside wall and lost the lead to Shaffer, who led the rest of the way. Adams settled for second, with Kenny Jacobs making a late-race pass to catch Cris Eash, who finished fourth. Keith Kauffman rounded out the top five in an event which featured 12 of the winningest drivers in Central PA history and among Fred Rahmer’s idols that he competed against throughout his career.

Qualifiers for the legends were won by the two 88 cars, Shaffer and Adams.

Danny Dietrich continued his hot streak by claiming two of the six match races and taking home the winner-take-all $10,000 among the six drivers elected by the fans through on-line voting.

Other winners of the five-lap match races were Dale Blaney (2) and Montieth (2).

In the end, Dietrich earned 53 points, followed by Lucas Wolfe with 50, Blaney with 48, and Montieth with 44. Greg Hodnett was sidelined in the first set of match races with a broken lifter, and Alan Krimes suffered mechanical problems in the last set of match races, ending both of their nights.

McClure’s Phil Walter, who raced against all but one of the legends on hand, took care of all the 358 sprinters in winning the 20-lap “358” sprint car feature.

Polesitter Cody Fletcher, grandson of one of the mechanics recognized as part of the evening’s festivities (Harry Fletcher), started on the pole and led the first five laps before giving way to fourth-starting Walter.

Though he led the rest of the way, he had to hold off the challenges of Central PA point series and Lincoln points leader Doug Hammaker over the second half of the race, taking the checkered .94 seconds in front for the $1,200 win.

Matt Campbell, second in Lincoln points, came on strong at the end to finish third, with Adrian Shaffer and Jeff Halligan completing the top five.

Heats for the 22 358’s on hand were won by Campbell, Shaffer, and Isaac Sneeringer.

This Saturday night, August 29, it will be APPLE CHRYSLER/DODGE/JEEP/RAM OF HANOVER NIGHT featuring the 410 Sprints, 358 Late Models, Street Stocks and York Flooring KIDS BIG WHEEL RACES. Gates open at 5:30 PM with racing action getting underway at 7:30 PM.

JERSEY RUSH V

NAPA AUTO PARTS & PIONEER POLE BUILDING SPONSOR BIG NIGHT OF RACING. . . .

GREG HODNETT & DUANE HOWARD SHARE JERSEY RUSH V VICTORIES IN DOUBLE HEADER THRILLER TUESDAY NIGHT AT NEW EGYPT

New Egypt, NJ August 25, 2015 . . . . . The fifth running of the JERSEY RUSH, on Tuesday night, at the New Egypt Speedway was nothing short of spectacular with Greg Hodnett winning a thriller over JJ Grasso and Duane Howard beating out Billy Pauch Jr. to win the modified feature. Hodnett of Thomasville, PA led all thirty laps of the 410 sprint feature but was pressured throughout the second half of the race, with Grasso in the hunt. Hodnett earned $5,000 for the victory, his first ever 410 sprint car win at New Egypt. The thirty lap modified feature saw Jimmy Horton lead at the outset, with Billy Pauch holding the top spot until Duane Howard took the lead on lap nine. Pauch Jr. moved on top on lap seventeen with Howard leading the final two lap to earn the $3,000 first place prize.

In the 410 Sprint Car feature event, Hodnett launched from the top starting spot with Robbie Stillwaggon right on his tail and Davey Sammons moving into the third position. Kunkletown, PA’s Ryan Smith -- while in the seventh position --- launched over the wheel of another competitor and flipped, spectacularly, over the turn four guardrail landing between the guardrail and the catch fence. Smith walked away uninjured. After a twenty minute delay in the action to remove Smith’s car, Hodnett took control on the restart with Lance Dewease powering into the second position and former two-time Jersey Rush winner, JJ Grasso moving into the third position. Dewease and Grasso battled back and forth swapping the second spot leading just passed the halfway point. Grasso, on a tear, battled in between lapped cars and gained quickly on Hodnett, challenging the leader as the five-to-go signal approached – and pulling alongside Hodnett in the closing laps of the event, but it was Hodnett capturing the checkered flag over Grasso, Davey Sammons in third, Danny Dietrich in fourth and Lance Dewease rounding out the top 5.

Neshanic, NJ’s Jimmy Horton started on the pole for the 30-lap Modified feature event and took the early lead battling with Frenchtown, NJ’s Billy Pauch. Pauch, aboard a potent big-block machine, powered to the top spot at the fourth circuit, as Oley, PA’s Duane Howard moved into the second position with ‘The Ringoes Rocket’ Ryan Godown charging to the third spot – from the nineteenth starting position. A lap nine restart shuffled the top runners with Howard taking over the lead and Billy Pauch Jr. moved into the second position with a hard-charging, Neal Williams challenging for the third spot. A two car battle for the lead ensued with Pauch Jr. and Duane Howard shuffling the top spot back and forth in lapped traffic. Howard, using a lapped car to his advantage, slid underneath Pauch Jr. with two lapped to go and went on to collect the $3,000 top prize. Pauch Jr. settled for second, Neal Williams in third, Billy Pauch in fourth and Danny Bouc in fifth.

A field of twenty-six 410 sprints took time trials with defending winner Ryan Smith earning a $100 bonus for setting fast time with a time of 13.785. Oliver Communications posted $200 to the heat race winners with Danny Dietrich, Greg Hodnett and Steve Buckwalter taking the sprint car heat wins, Modified heats were won by Billy Pauch Jr., Duane Howard and Billy Pauch. Consolations were won by Mike Haggenbottom in the Sprints and Ryan Godown in the Modifieds. The Thayer Performance Hard Charger award was won by Mark Bitner.

Hodnett Takes Checkers over Abreu at at SSP on Sunday Night

Next Test & Tune on Wednesday, September 2

Newberrytown, PA (August 23, 2015) – Greg Hodnett of Thomasville took the checkers in the 410 Sprint Car 25 lapper in the Sunday Night Sprint Car Special at the Susquehanna Speedway Park. Grantville’s Doug Hammaker collected the 358 Sprint Car 20-lap feature race.

By virtue of a number one pill inversion, the two heat race winners Danny Dietrich and Greg Hodnett brought the field to the green. Hodnettt grabbed the early lead over Hodnett with California’s Rico Abreu close behind in third. Two cautions midway through the race slowed the field, but the running order remained the same on the restarts with Hodnett setting the pace. With one lap to go, Hodnett encountered lapped traffic, giving Dietrich a shot at the lead. On the final circuit, Hodnett went low with Dietrich taking the high line. Dietrich made contact with the outside guardrail, bringing out the caution flag and setting up a one-lap race to the finish between Hodnett, Abreu and Kyle Moody. On the restart, Hodnett continued to lead and took the checkers over Abreau. Moddy settled for a third place podium finish at the end. Austin Hogue came across the finish line in fourth, followed by Brent Marks in fifth.

In the 20-lap 358 Sprint Car feature, polesitter Doug Hammaker took the lead and began to set a blistering pace with Brad McClelland and Jeff Halligan trying to chase him down. A caution with four laps remaining brought McClelland to the rear bumper of the leader. On the restart, Wyatt Hinkle flipped in turn 1 & 2 bringing out the red flag. Once the race restarted, Hammaker continued to lead to the finish, taking his first SSP win of the season. McClelland finished second, followed by Halligan in third. Matt Campbell and Lucas Montgomery finished fourth and fifth places respectively. Doug Hammaker and Halligan were the heat race winners.

The first caution came during the fifth circuit. Chad Trout had a strong restart and was even with Jackson entering turn three. Trout’s car drifted wide in turn four and Jackson gained a five-length lead entering turn one.

The top five of Jackson, Trout, Mitten, Hockenberry, and Scott Dellinger were riding single file around the speedway. Jackson, by lap nine, held a 15-length edge.

Following a lap-12 restart, Russ Mitten advanced into second position. The lead duo of Jackson and Mitten separated from the field. Tony Jackson maintained a four-car length edge over Mitten.

The third and final caution came with two laps remaining. Russ Mitten had a strong restart and was a length behind Tony Jackson. On the final circuit, Mitten dove to the bottom lane in turns three and four, pulling even with Jackson. The leaders were side-by-side exiting turn four. Tony Jackson forged a slight lead and the Newville driver crossed the finish line a length ahead of Russ Mitten. Chad Trout was third, Mike Enders fourth, and Bobby Hockenberry was fifth.

As the competitors crossed the finish line one car slowed sending Davey’ Walsh’s sportsman careening into the inside fence. Walsh’s car flipped into the first turn in a wreck that collected several machines. Although Walsh’s car was destroyed, he walked back to the pits.

The victory is Tony Jackson’s first at Williams Grove Speedway. He becomes the 36th Saturday Night Series Super Sportsman feature victor and the 44th Super Sportsman competitor to win in Williams Grove history.

Frankie Herr captured the 2015 Blazer’s Body Shop Super Sportsman point title. Herr, from Carlisle, will not defend his title in 2016. During the past week Herr sold all of his Super Sportsman equipment.

Heat wins for the 32-car field went to Bill Devine, Dellinger and Trout. The consolation went to Tom Wyckoff. Chad Smith, driving his just-purchased former Frankie Herr machine, received the Sprint Aces Hard Charger award.

Pat Beard led the opening circuit of the 20-lap Credit Connection Auto Sales 358 Late Model feature. Dan Zechman, one lap later, became the race’s new leader.

The event’s only caution came on lap five. Zechman continued to lead with Scott Richwine taking possession of second. By lap eight Shaun Jones advanced to third. It was a race of the number twos with the No. 2Z of Dan Zechman in the lead, the No. 2 of Scott Richwine in second and the No. 2M of Shaun Jones in third.

Dan Zechman, from Hanover, took control of the race, gaining an eighth-mile lead. Scott Richwine and Shaun Jones were in a close fight for second. Cam Zeigler, Wes Alleman and Billy Wampler were contending for fourth.

Dan Zechman cruised to his third 2015 victory. He is tied for fourth with four victories on the Saturday Night Series all-time leading 358 Late Model feature winner’s list. Shaun Jones used a late pass to finish in second with Scott Richwine in third. Wes Alleman was fourth and Billy Wampler was fifth.

Billy Wampler, in his first full season of competition with the Saturday Night Series, claimed the 2015 Credit Connection Auto Sales 358 Late Model point title.

Preliminaries for the 20-car field went to Jake Jones and Wampler. Travis Mease won the Artwerks Hard Charger award.

Eric Tripp led the start of the 15-lap Aquafun Pools Street Stock feature. One lap later there was a massive pile-up on the front stretch that involved many of the competitors. The race went under red flag conditions.

Eric Tripp, after the restart, continued to lead with Mike Buckley and Jeff Haag close behind. On the third lap Haag swept by Buckley and Haag to become the new leader.

Following a series of restarts Haag was leading with Mike Buckley in second and Kory Sites in third. Sites and Buckley battled for second allowing leader Haag to widen his lead.

Jeff Haag, from Auburn, held a 1.5-second lead when Kory Sites passed Mike Buckley for second. Haag won his sixth of the year by 12 lengths over Kory Sites, Mike Buckley, Jasen Geesaman, and Friday night’s winner Sean Dawson. Jeff Haag has 12 career Saturday Night Series victories tying him for second on the all-time leading winner’s listing.

Craig Morgan, a victim of the second-lap crash, won the 2015 Aquafun Pools Street Stock point title.

Geesaman and Kevin Sigler won the qualifiers for the 22 entries. Steven Dove received the Artwerks Hard Charger award.

This is the final Saturday show of the 2015 Williams Grove Speedway Saturday Night Series. The SNS will return to Williams Grove Speedway action on September 11 for the Topless 30 358 Late Model race. Joining the 358 Late Models will be the Super Sportsman and Street Stocks.

STUTTS STRIKES AGAIN – SCORES FOURTH 360 SPRINT CAR WIN; RINE RETURNS TO LATE MODEL VICTORY LANE FOR FOURTH WIN; MITCH POWERS TO FIFTH PRO STOCK CHECKERS LAWTON SCORES FIRST CAREER WIN IN ROADRUNENRS

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – TJ Stutts has found a lot of speed in the second half of the 2015 racing season as the Liverpool driver powered to his fourth win of the year in Saturday night’s 25-lap 360 sprint car main event at Selinsgrove Speedway following a thrilling wheel-to-wheel duel with Mark Smith of Sunbury.

Driving the Wise Motorsports No. 23, the $2,000 victory was Stutts’ 24th career at Selinsgrove in 358-360 sprint car competition.

Jeff Rine of Danville scored his fourth win of the year and the 95th of his career at Selinsgrove in the 25-lap super late model main event on Bernheisel Race Components Night.

Brad Mitch of McClure raced to his fifth win of the year in the 15-lap pro stock feature, while Curtis Lawton of Danville drove to his first career win in the 12-lap roadrunner race.

Drivers from all divisions participated in a helmet collection for the family of Jim Campbell Jr. at intermission. Campbell lost his life in a sprint car racing accident at Williams Grove Speedway Aug. 14. The collection for the Campbell family totaled $2,128.00

Selinsgrove Speedway returns to racing action at 7:30 pm with a three division racing program featuring 360 sprint cars, super late models, and pro stocks. The late models will utilize the World of Outlaws Late Model Series format as part of a “tune up” for the 17th Annual Late Model National Open slated for Sunday, Sept. 6.

Track officials announced the World of Outlaws Late Model Series National Open will be a 40-lap event paying $8,000 to win. Ticket prices for this year’s race have been reduced to $25 for adults and just $10 for students. Tickets can be purchased on race day only. The limited late models will be on the Sept. 6 racing card.

Second-place starter Steve Collins darted into the lead at the drop of the green flag in the sprint car feature only to spin into the second turn guardrail. Original fourth-place starter Brian Nornhold restarted the race in second and drove into the lead when the race resumed.

Nornhold was trailed by polesitter John Braim and third-place starter Kevin Albert for the first five laps. On the sixth lap, 12th-place starter Mark Smith horsepowered his way into the runner-up position and started to reel in Nornhold. On the 12th circuit, Smith pulled a slider in turn four with some contact sending Nornhold into a spin.

When the race resumed, Smith had eighth-place starter TJ Stutts on his tail and the two leading feature winners this season squared off in a thrilling duel for the lead as the two see-sawed for the front spot. Once Stutts secured the lead about three laps into the duel, he stretched his lead and drove to a 3.8-second victory over Smith, Jason Schultz, Braim, and Larry Kelleher.

Polesitter Danny Snyder powered into the lead at the start of the super late model main event. Snyder was chased by third-place starter Donnie Schick and second-place starter Dave Brouse Sr. in the early laps of the race. On the 11th circuit, seventh-place starter Chad Hollenbeck advanced to third as 11th-place starter Jeff Rine dueled with ninth-place starter Jim Yoder for top five positions.

At the halfway point, Rine took over third from Hollenbeck and a lap later powered by Schick for second. Rine made the winning pass by Snyder using the inside lane through turns one and two and quickly pulled away from the field. In the final laps, Hollenbeck raced into second and attempted to reel in Rine to no avail. At the finish, Rine was victorious by 1.4 seconds over Hollenbeck, Yoder, Snyder, and Matt Cochran.

Second-place starter Nate Stroup led the first three laps of the pro stock feature until he lost the handle and spun. Third-place starter Derrick Garman inherited the lead with original polesitter Peanut Heintzelman restarting in the second position. By lap six, 12th-place starter Brad Mitch stormed into the runner-up position and set his sights on Garman.

Mitch made the winning pass with a dive to the inside of Garman entering turn three and emerged the new leader out of turn four on lap eight. During the second half of the race, Mitch began to stretch his lead and posted a two-second margin of victory over Garman, Brandon Moser, Matt Wilson, and Dave Brouse Jr.

Following a multi-car incident on the frontstretch, original tenth-place starter Curtis Lawton took the lead on the restart and wired the field in the roadrunner race but not without an intense side-by-side battle with ninth-place starter Jason Zook. In the final laps, seventh-place starter Jeremy Kline closed in on the leaders and made a three-car battle to the finish. Lawton took the checkered flag by just .11 of a second over Zook for his first-ever win with Kline rounding out the top three.

Esh Holds Off Hodnett For Port Royal Sprints Win, Frye Wires For Late Models

Reeser holds back Miller for 305 sprint victory

8/22/15

Port Royal – Doug Esh held off Greg Hodnett to win the 410 sprint car feature at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night, taking home $4,000 for the victory in honor of late speedway push truck driver Bill Long.

The 22-lap super late model main went to Coleby Frye, who outraced Dylan Yoder for the checkers.

And Tyler Reeser held off point leader Jeff Miller for the win in the 305 sprint main.

Mike Erdley took the lead in the 410 sprint main from the pole over Esh.

Erdley would lead the first three laps before a high flying Esh of Lancaster took the lead on the backstretch after getting a good run off of the second corner cushion.

Esh then went to work trying to open up some distance between himself and Erdley and entered traffic on the sixth tour.

Greg Hodnett started fifth in the field and got by Lance Dewease for third on the 11th lap as his pace quickened as the race wore on.

With 10 laps to go, Hodnett got around Erdley for second but was a few seconds behind leader Esh at that point.

However with five laps to go in the 25 lapper he had driven down most of the advantage to make a run for the win in the final stages.

But Esh performed well in traffic and although Hodnett closed dramatically during the final two laps, it wasn’t quick enough to be able to take a swipe at the lead before the checkers came out.

Esh’s margin of victory over Hodnett was .843 seconds at the finish.

Erdley drove home third followed by Californian Rico Abreu and Dewease.

Sixth through 10th went to Lucas Wolfe, Logan Wagner, Blane Heimbach, Mike Wagner and Brock Zearfoss.

Heats went to Hodnett, Esh and Davey Sammons.

Wolfe set quick time in qualifying with a lap of 16.124 seconds.

Frye of Dover would lead all 22 laps of the super late model main but not before Dylan Yoder pressured for the win.

When Frye entered the backmarkers on the eighth lap, Yoder erased his lead as the pair worked traffic and appeared poised to make a bid for the lead when the races first caution flag unfurled with 10 laps to go.

Open track aided Frye’s pace at the front and although Yoder kept him in sight during the final 10 laps, he was never able to again make as strong of a bid as had been the case before the yellow flag appeared.

A final yellow with one lap to go set up a dash to the finish but Frye took the win by .260 seconds.

Yoder was second followed by sixth starter Tim Wilson, Andy Haus and Tim Smith Jr.

Sixth through 10th went to Matt Parks, Mitch Hack, Jason Schmidt, Andrew Yoder and Mike Lupfer.

Heats went to Hack, Parks and Wilson.

Dylan Yoder set quick time with a lap of 19.219 seconds.

Derrick Bowersox started on the pole of the 18-lap 305 sprint feature and lead until lap 12 when Tyler Reeser went by for the lead.

Point leader Jeff Miller started ninth in the field and worked through the pack to take over second with three laps to go.

Miller then closed up on Reeser into the final turns but a move by Reeser to protect the bottom lane in the final pair of turns spared him a pass and set up his win with a thwarted Miller settling for second place.

Drew Ritchie was a Port Royal career best third followed by Bowersox and Jake Waters.

Heats went to Bowersox, Miller and Scott Ellerman.

DIETRICH SCORES SIXTH LINCOLN WIN OF THE YEAR IN BAPS NIGHT “410” SPRINTS;

Bill Stine claims first career win in “358” sprints; Rick Hulson best of All-American Outlaws

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 8/22/2015 – Not even the highest pill draw and points handicapping can stop Danny Dietrich.

In his first Lincoln appearance since competing in the “A” main at the Knoxville Nationals, Dietrich started last in his heat, made the 12-car handicap, started 12th, and drove away to his sixth Lincoln win in the BAPS Night “410” sprint car feature at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

“Night in, night out these guys give me a fast car. I couldn’t be any happier,” said Dietrich upon exiting his Gary Kauffman-owned Sandoe’s Fruit Market/Hickory Run Orchards/Weikert’s Livestock #48 in victory lane, “To be sitting here again after going out on the road and picking up where we left off…we’re doing real good.”

Despite another masterful run through the field, Dietrich did have one close call as he closed on polesitter and race-long leader Tim Wagaman on the front stretch of lap 14.

“We got real lucky here on the front stretch. Zach (Euculano) was off the pace and pulling into the infield. I tried to stay behind him as long as I could just because there was nowhere to go around the top,” said Dietrich, “I didn’t know Cory (Haas) was there, and that was close…closer than I like to be. But these guys that we race with week in and week out are very clean racers, and I can’t thank all of them enough. Being clean on the track means we don’t tear anything up.”

Dietrich regrouped and drove around Wagaman exiting turn two of lap 15. From there, he checked out on the field, crossing 3.09 seconds in front of seventh-starting Haas.

Brandon Rahmer started second, ran second the first 12 laps, dropped to fourth with ten to go, and fought back to a well-earned third-place finish. Alan Krimes and Gerard McIntyre, Jr. completed the top five. Wagaman settled for sixth, followed by Brian Montieth, who came from the rear of the field following a second lap spin.

Hodnett And Dietrich Split Williams Grove Sprint Twin 20s

8/21/15

Mechanicsburg – Greg Hodnett and Danny Dietrich scored twin 20-lap features for sprint cars Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway.

Winners took home $2,500 for their victories.

To start out the night, Hodnett set quick time over the field with a lap of 17.247 seconds before going to work in the first feature.

Lucas Wolfe and Lance Dewease framed the front row for the start of the first main event with Wolfe going out front with a strong start.

Chased by Dewease, Wolfe entered the backmarkers on the eighth tour with fourth starter Hodnett racing third.

But Wolfe’s entire night came to an end with nine laps to go when his motor expired in the second corner, remanding the point to Dewease.

Hodnett took a shot at Dewease on the restart but Dewease used all of the speedway to his advantage to keep Hodnett at bay despite repeated charges by the challenger.

The race for the lead cooled down with five laps to go before Hodnett mounted his final charge with two laps left.

The Spring Grove driver was able to sweep under Dewease through the third and fourth turns as the pair raced toward the white flag to take control.

But Dewease came back to reclaim the point momentarily with a big swoop in the first corner only to see his car drift to the outside of the second turn, allowing Hodnett to bite fast in the second turn and drive by again, this time to seal the win.

The victory was Hodnett’s fourth of the season at the track including a win in 360-sprint competition.

Dewease was second followed by Aaron Ott, Danny Dietrich and Rodney Westhafer.

Sixth through 10th went to Cory Haas, Brent Marks, Rico Abreu, Brian Montieth and Mark Smith.

Hodnett pulled an invert of 10 for the second feature, placing Smith and Montieth on the front row for the green flag.

Montieth allowed Smith to lead only the first circuit before taking over.

Dietrich started seventh in the feature and was riding second and gaining on Montieth when the red flag appeared with seven laps to go for a two-car tangle in the fourth corner involving Pat Cannon and Glenndon Forsythe.

Under the stoppage, fifth-place runner Hodnett was forced to pit after coming up with a left front flat tire, ending his bid for a sweep of the night.

It took Dietrich only two laps to rout underneath Montieth and take the lead when action resumed, also with a low move in the third and fourth corners.

And once at the front, Dietrich pulled away from Montieth to claim his fourth checkers of the season at Williams Grove by 2.014 seconds.

Montieth settled for second followed by Westhafer, Smith and Abreu.

Sixth through 10th went to Marks, Austin Hogue, Ott, Dewease and Alan Krimes.

Twin heats went to Marks and Smith.

Sean Dawson won the 15-lap street stock feature after starting fourth.

Greg Diehl rode home second followed by Chris Heller, Jeff Haag and Doug Hoffman.

Twin heats went to Kevin Sigler and Craig Morgan.

BAPS NIGHT BRINGS SECOND CHANCE TO HELP GRIEVING CHILDREN

York, PA – August 14, 2015. On Saturday, August 22nd beginning at 5:30pm at Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, PA, BAPS will be joining sprint car fans for it’s second night of family fun for a great cause. BAPS team, fans, families and our 2015 partner agency, Olivia's House, are anxious to join in the festivities and receive the proceeds from BAPS t-shirt sales plus special raffles including a 2016 track season pass and a custom designed race helmet. Lincoln Speedway itself will be supporting this grief center for children by donating a portion of their half of the 50/50 drawings from the evening.

In addition to fundraising efforts, BAPS will be providing children's games all evening long after featuring a photograph and autograph session with BAPS sponsored 410 Sprint Car driver, Brent Marks and 358 driver Chris Frank. Brent is a professional driver who has celebrated much success up and down the eastern coast. During BAPS Night, BAPS and their drivers will be giving children from Olivia’s House who are grieving from the loss of a loved one, the chance to experience the feel behind the wheel and to personally meet the drivers.

“Our goal is to provide an evening of “edge of your seat” racing while giving the Olivia’s House children the chance, if only for one night, to be able to put aside their grief and enjoy the moment”, says BAPS co-owner, Dean Berkheimer.

The first BAPS Night at Lincoln held in early July, generated over $4,000 for Olivia’s House’s remarkable programs. This second events promises to be just as exciting and will generate additional donations to this local organization that does so much for so many.

BAPS asks everyone to join us for BAPS Night at Lincoln as we celebrate our family of drivers along with our partner families from Olivia's House. Giving back to others is just one of the ways that BAPS supports the community that has contributed to its ongoing success.

BAPS, a, family-owned business whose modest beginnings were in 1979 from a small roadside store on Lewisberry Road in York, PA, is currently owned by a third generation brother and sister team from the Berkheimer family with the fourth generation already heavily involved in the company operations. BAPS now provides superior products and outstanding customer service through six company-owned stores in three states. Giving back to others is just one of the ways that BAPS supports the community that has contributed to its ongoing success.

BAPS NIGHT BRINGS SECOND CHANCE TO HELP GRIEVING CHILDREN

York, PA – August 14, 2015. On Saturday, August 22nd beginning at 5:30pm at Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, PA, BAPS will be joining sprint car fans for it’s second night of family fun for a great cause. BAPS team, fans, families and our 2015 partner agency, Olivia's House, are anxious to join in the festivities and receive the proceeds from BAPS t-shirt sales plus special raffles including a 2016 track season pass and a custom designed race helmet. Lincoln Speedway itself will be supporting this grief center for children by donating a portion of their half of the 50/50 drawings from the evening.

In addition to fundraising efforts, BAPS will be providing children's games all evening long after featuring a photograph and autograph session with BAPS sponsored 410 Sprint Car driver, Brent Marks and 358 driver Chris Frank. Brent is a professional driver who has celebrated much success up and down the eastern coast. During BAPS Night, BAPS and their drivers will be giving children from Olivia’s House who are grieving from the loss of a loved one, the chance to experience the feel behind the wheel and to personally meet the drivers.

“Our goal is to provide an evening of “edge of your seat” racing while giving the Olivia’s House children the chance, if only for one night, to be able to put aside their grief and enjoy the moment”, says BAPS co-owner, Dean Berkheimer.

The first BAPS Night at Lincoln held in early July, generated over $4,000 for Olivia’s House’s remarkable programs. This second events promises to be just as exciting and will generate additional donations to this local organization that does so much for so many.

BAPS asks everyone to join us for BAPS Night at Lincoln as we celebrate our family of drivers along with our partner families from Olivia's House. Giving back to others is just one of the ways that BAPS supports the community that has contributed to its ongoing success.

BAPS, a, family-owned business whose modest beginnings were in 1979 from a small roadside store on Lewisberry Road in York, PA, is currently owned by a third generation brother and sister team from the Berkheimer family with the fourth generation already heavily involved in the company operations. BAPS now provides superior products and outstanding customer service through six company-owned stores in three states. Giving back to others is just one of the ways that BAPS supports the community that has contributed to its ongoing success.

USAC MIDGETS

UPCOMING EVENTS:

Sat., August 22, 2015 (7:30 PM) - BAPS NIGHT: 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints and All-American Outlaws

ABREU ADDS LINCOLN TO HIS WIN LIST IN USAC/ARDC MIDGETS;

Leppo claims Central PA Legends feature; 410 & 358 Sprints return on Saturday

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 8/19/2015 – For the throngs of race fans who turned out to Lincoln to see 4-foot, 4-inch Rico Abreu Wednesday night, he did not disappoint.

“That was pretty damn cool right there!” exclaimed Abreu after claiming his second USAC/ARDC win in as many nights as part of the Honda Midget Series “Eastern Storm” swing, “They packed the track in and that helped out a bunch. That was a pretty cool race to be driving.’

For most of the race, it looked like Abreu would have to rally to make the podium, as Jerry Coons, Jr. and Bryan Clauson waged a duel for the lead over the first 28 laps.

But the final laps were beyond description, with fifth-starting Abreu assuming third when teammate Christopher Bell spun in turns three and four with five laps to go.

On the 26th lap restart, Clauson got past Coons for the lead. A lap later, Coons (who led laps 1-13 and 16-25) began to fade, opening the door for a charging Abreu with four laps to go.

Abreu then took to the cushion to pass Clauson for the race lead on lap 29, and hung on for the crowd-pleasing win.

“I know it’s tough here leading. I went through the same scenario last night of just not knowing where to go. He got by Jerry and then went low. That left a clean lane up there,” said Abreu of the race-winning pass, “He’s a good enough driver to race me clean, and we get great racing like that. I just dragged raced him down into one. The top kinda got burned in there and I got my momentum going up there. It was exciting!”

He picked up $3,500 for the win, with Clauson settling for second, Tracy Hines coming from eighth to finish third, tenth-starting Kevin Thomas, Jr. fourth, and 12th-starting Alex Bright fifth. Sixth through tenth were Coons, Steve Buckwalter, Spencer Bayston, Tyler Thomas, and Brandon Bright.

“I’m having a lot of fun here in Pennsylvania,” continued Abreu, “I think it’s great USAC is now coming to Pennsylvania. I know there’s a lot of great race tracks here. It shows tonight with the great racing. I thank the fans for coming out. I know it’s a weekday, but it looks like a great crowd to me.”

Heats for the USAC Midgets were won by Steve Buckwalter, Coons, Tyler Thomas, Jr., and Christopher Bell, with Trevor Kobylarz winning the consolation.

Clauson set a new track record over the 31-car field in time trials, turning a lap of 15.804 seconds (85.421 miles per hour).

Spring Grove’s Harlon Leppo became the fifth leader on lap 18 and went on to win the 20-lap Central PA Legends feature.

Leppo started third but watched polesitter Mason Chaney led the first three laps and Travis McClelland lead lap four. He then led the next 11 laps before McClelland slid under Leppo for the lead in turn two of lap 17. One lap later, Leppo made an identical move to re-take the lead, and crossed 1.12 seconds in front of McClelland at the end.

Bill Diehl caught Bob Stough at the start-finish line to finish third, with Stough and Chaney completing the top five.

Heats for the 27 Central PA Legends on hand were won by Chaney, McClelland, and Leppo, with Rick Hartwig winning the consolation.

This Saturday night, August 22nd, it will be the second of two BAPS Family Night of the season. The 410 and 358 sprint cars return to the Pigeon Hills, and will be joined by the All-American Outlaws.

Gates for the show open at 5:30 p.m., with racing action scheduled for 7:30 p.m.

NAPA AUTO PARTS & PIONEER POLE BUILDINGS PRESENT JERSEY RUSH V AT NEW EGYPT SPEEDWAY TUESDAY, AUGUST 25

DANNY DIETRICH, GREG HODNETT, & LUCAS WOLFE AMONG HIGH POWERED 410 SPRINT PRE-ENTRIES

Race fans are abuzz as anticipation builds for the only combined appearance of the top divisions of the region – the 410 Sprint Cars and the Modifieds – together in one event at Ocean County, NJ’s New Egypt Speedway on Tuesday, August 25. Driver entries are pouring in and the cream of the crop are Garden State bound for the NAPA Auto Parts & Pioneer Pole Buildings Jersey Rush V.

While the competitors prepare for action, race fans have an early opportunity to enjoy some fun with a pre-race pit party from 5 PM – 6 PM. Fans will be able to enter the pits from New Egypt’s turn-4 Victory Lane and see the sights and hear the sounds of race teams preparing for battle and get autographs from the area’s top drivers.

Among the competitors is Gettyburg, PA’s Danny Dietrich. The man they call ‘Double D’ has been on a hot streak of late, claiming major wins at Grandview Speedway’s Inaugural Thunder Cup and the Williams Grove Raceway’s World of Outlaws Summer Nationals. Dietrich, fresh off of a Knoxville Nationals A-Main performance, has momentum on his side heading into Jersey Rush V.

8/16/15

Mechanicsburg ? Williams Grove Speedway will present Twin 20s for 410 sprints this Friday night, August 21, at 7:30 pm.

Also on the racing program will be the Saturday Series street stock division.

Each of the 20-lap mains for the Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprints will pay $2,500 to win with time trials locking in the front 6, 8 or 12 starters (dependent on number of entries) with the balance of the field competing in twin last chance races to get into the field.

The winner of the first main will draw an inversion pill to start the second 20-lapper.

Williams Grove Speedway will purchase and distribute some $5,000 in rear tires to the competitors in the Twin 20s, adding to the overall value of the events.

All finishers in the first feature will each receive a free rear tire along with the winner of the second main event.

Fireworks are also a part of the Twins show.

The event is part of the 2015 Hoosier Diamond Series at the track of which Greg Hodnett is the current point leader.

Hodnett also currently leads the overall 2015 Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint season point standings, trying to pick up back-to-back titles at the historic facility.

In the super late model main, Jeff Miller of Huntingdon wired the field for the 22-lap win over Tim Smith Jr.

And in the econo late model main it was Tim Fedder picking up the win for his second of the year in the division.

Curt Zimmerman won the All American Outlaws main to close out the night.

Heimbach and Dewease lined up third and fourth for the start of the 25-lap 410 sprint car main with Joey Hershey and Curt Stroup on the front row.

Heimbach struck early when the race began, driving by Stroup and bursting inside of Hershey for control in the first corner as the race took the green flag.

But Hershey served notice he wasn?t so easy to turn away when he came back on Heimbach out of the second corner to regain the point and pull Heimbach back to the stripe.

Heimbach then chased Hershey lap after lap with the pair running two distinct grooves, Heimbach glued to the bottom and Hershey racing around the top of the track.

On the fifth tour, Hershey?s margin over Heimbach at the stripe was just .078 seconds and on the ensuing lap Heimbach got out front to begin his run at the point.

He entered the backmarkers on the ninth tour in what would turn out to be a non-stop affair while Hershey ran a good race in second with Dewease racing third.

Dewease finally got around Hershey with nine laps to go but failed to close up the advantage that Heimbach had amassed by that point, which was 4.074 seconds.

Instead, the Selinsgrove driver jetted away for the win, darting through traffic to the finish to record his 10th career victory at the oval and first since the season opener in 2014.

Dewease settled for second, over 10 seconds back while seventh starter Ryan Taylor drove to the front for third with a challenging Steve Buckwalter in fourth.

Hershey fell to fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to 19th starter Mike Erdley, Dylan Cisney, Dave Sammons, Brock Zearfoss and Stroup.

Heats for the 20-car field went to Sammons and Hershey.

Miller started on the pole of the 22-lap super late model main and controlled the entire affair.

Jason Schmidt raced in second for the first half of the event before seventh starter Tim Smith Jr. motored by for the spot.

However Smith was never able to drive down any distance on Miller, instead finishing 3.280 seconds behind at the checkers.

The victory was the third of Miller?s Port Royal career.

Point leader Mike Lupfer rode home third followed by Schmidt and Trent Brenneman.

Sixth through 10th went to Patrick Bryner, Tim Wilson, Mitch Hack, Andy Haus and Matt Parks.

Heats went to Haus and Brenneman.

Jared Fulkroad led the first five laps of the 18-lap econo late model main before giving way to Tim Fedder on a restart.

And from that point on it was all Fedder at the front.

Fulkroad hung in for second until two laps to go when he fell off the pace, giving way to Andrew Yoder for the finish.

Harold Ranck was third followed by point leader Eric Irvin and Todd Snook.

Heats went to Fedder and Yoder.

Rick Hulson led the first 12 laps of the 20-lap All American Outlaws feature before Kurt Zimmerman took over to the finish.

Hulson settled for second followed by Fred Cullum, Dylan Keim and Justin Cullum.

DIETZ’S FIRST CAREER 410 SPRINT WIN COMES AT LINCOLN SPEEDWAY

USAC/ARDC Midget show up next on Wednesday night

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 8/15/2015 – Rookie driver Chase Dietz fulfilled a life-long dream by claiming his first career 410 sprint car feature win during Premier Auto Works/Auto Locator Night at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

After normal qualifying and a unique set of two-car match races for the top 12 starters, the 2014 Lincoln “358” champ started fifth in the feature event.

Polesitter Jordan Mackison took the lead at the outset from outside front row starter Scott Fisher and led the first ten laps before Dietz nosed in front of him at the start-finish line, just before the lone caution flag of the race came out for a spinning Cory Haas in turn four of lap 11.

Because half the field wasn’t by, the lap didn’t count but Dietz’s pass for the lead did.

“I was sitting there under the caution and couldn’t believe I was in front,” said a jubilant Dietz after exiting his Scott Gobrecht-owned Bad Boy Buggies/Golf Cart Services/H&H Excavating Services #44 in victory lane, “We kept plugging away and I was kinda hoping we’d hit lapped traffic so that they would block for me a little bit.”

“After last night,” continued Dietz, “This race is definitely for Jim Campbell and the whole racing community. It’s tough to see that happen, but we all know what could happen when we strap in these race cars. It’s just a passion of ours. We all send prayers and thoughts out to the whole family. It’s just part of racing, but we just hope we never see it again.”

“We were racing with Jordan for the lead and I thought I was going spin out there a couple of times. It wasn’t the best I could have done getting up through. But we only have about 20 races on this thing, and it’s definitely a handful…especially when you’re getting excited going for the lead,” said Dietz, “It doesn’t matter what your in or where you are in any event here…it’s so tough. It’s a great accomplishment to be sitting here where all these legends have been. It’s an amazing feeling.”

After the 11th-lap caution, Dietz drove flawlessly through lapped traffic over the final 15 laps, holding off serious challenges by Adam Wilt, Alan Krimes, and Brian Montieth as the leaders raced through lapped traffic over the final ten laps. Montieth caught Krimes for third with three laps to go. Though he tried unsuccessful sliders on two occasions, fourth-starting Wilt was unable to make the pass and crossed 1.44 seconds behind Dietz.

“We talked to Scott earlier in the year, and he decided he wanted to put me in the car. I told him I didn’t know why he wanted to put a 17-year-old rookie in the car and spend all that money to give me this dream. I’m so fortunate,” reflected Dietz, “I have so many great people behind me. I can’t thank Scott, his family, and my family enough for giving me this opportunity.”

Mackison completed his best-ever Lincoln run in fifth, with Jim Siegel, Tim Glafelter, Austin Hogue, Tyler Ross, and Billy Dietrich rounding out the top ten.

Heats for the 25 410’s on hand were won by Robbie Kendall, Dietz, and Krimes.

Lincoln swings back into action with a special mid-week show this Wednesday, August 19th, at 7:30 PM with the USAC Dirt Midgets (co-sanctioned by ARDC) coming to Central Pennsylvania. Central PA Legends will round out the evenings racing program which will see the gates open at 5:30 PM, and time trials getting underway at 7:30 PM.

Then next Saturday night, August 22, 2015 it will BAPS NIGHT featuring the 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints and All-American Outlaws. Gates open at 5:30 PM with racing action getting underway at 7:30 PM.

STUTTS OUTDRIVES STELLAR FIELD TO BECOME FIRST FOUR-TIME WINNER OF SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY 360 SPRINT CAR NATIONAL OPEN; FRYE SCORES SECOND LATE MODEL WIN IN THREE WEEKS

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – TJ Stutts of Liverpool wired the field to become the first four-time winner of the Mach 1 Chassis National Open for 358-360 sprint cars Saturday night at Selinsgrove Speedway but not without several thrilling challenges from Doug Esh of Lancaster and Davie Franek of Wantage, N.J.

At the wheel of the Wise Motorsports No. 23, Stutts’ $10,000 victory in the 15th annual 35-lap Open was his third of the season and the 23rd of his career in 358-360 sprint car competition at the track. His previous Open victories came in 2001, 2003, and 2013.

Coleby Frye of Dover won his second race in three weeks at Selinsgrove in the 25-lap super late model main event.

Selinsgrove Speedway will present the Bernheisel Race Components Superior Products Night for super late models plus 360 sprint cars, pro stocks, and roadrunners at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 22. Track gates will open at 5 p.m.

TJ Stutts started on the pole and pulled into the lead at the drop of the green flag in the sprint car main event. Stutts was trailed by second-place starter Steve Collins in the early laps of the race. On the seventh lap, 10th-place starter Doug Esh began to show a lot of speed and stormed into the runner-up position. Esh quickly reeled in Stutts and a thrilling wheel-to-wheel duel unfolded for the lead with both drivers see-sawing for the lead through the turns.

The first caution flag unfurled on lap 13 for an incident involving Derek Locke and Eric Tomecek in turn three. When the race resumed, the pair of 23 sprint cars driven by Stutts and Esh resumed an intense war on wheels. On the 15th circuit, however, Esh’s car blew an engine and rolled to a stop on the frontstretch.

Sixth-place starter Davie Franek inherited the second position and put in a bid for the lead on the restart to no avail. Stutts continued to set a torrid pace around the top of the race track while Franek, fourth-place starter Colby Womer, and fifth-place starter Kevin Nouse kept pace. The race was stopped on lap 18 when Josh Weller’s car hit the fourth turn guardrail and flipped several times onto the frontstretch. Weller escaped injury.

On the lap 19 restart, Nouse advanced to third and displayed a lot of momentum in the second half of the race. Womer’s strong run came to end on lap 26 when his car rolled to a stop in turn two with mechanical problems. On the final restart, Stutts stretched his lead and scored a 1.8-second margin of victory over Franek, Nouse, 12th-place starter Ryan Kissinger, and 23rd-place starter Mark Smith, who qualified Jim Shuster’s No. C-4 through the B-main when his No. 1 blew an engine in his heat race.

Polesitter Danny Smith powered into the lead at the start of the late model feature. Smith was chased by second-place starter Dave Brouse Sr. for the first six laps until seventh-place starter Coleby Frye started his drive to the front of the pack.

At the halfway point, Frye made the winning pass by Smith using the outside lane off turn four. A lap later, 10th-place starter Jeff Rine made the same move at the same spot on the race track to take over the runner-up position. For the rest of the way, Frye held Rine at bay and posted a 1.27 second margin of victory. Eight-place starter Matt Cochran, 11th-place starter Steve Campbell, and 14th-place starter Kenny Trevitz rounded out the top five.

HANOVER, PA (8/14/2015) – It didn’t take Brad McClelland long to take control of the “358” sprint car feature at Trail-Way Speedway Friday night.

An inversion draw placed Trail-Way’s all-time winningest driver third for the start, and he took the lead from polesitter Zach Euculano on turn two of the second lap. He led the rest of the way, crossing 2.03 seconds in front of Seth Kearchner.

“I wanted to get in front before the track started tearing up,” said McClelland after exiting the Littlestown Autocare Center/Rucker Computer Solutions/Arter Graphics #6R in victory lane, referring to the rapidly developing cushion, “We were better than last week, and stepped it up tonight.”

While McClelland was passing Euculano on the outside, Kearchner was sliding under Euculano on the inside exiting the second turn of lap two, and he ran second the rest of the way. Central PA points leader Doug Hammaker started sixth and caught Euculano for third following a seventh-lap restart and ran there over the final 18 laps. Points leader Isaac Sneeringer was the hard-charger, coming from 12th starting spot to catch Euculano for fourth on lap eight. David Holbrook caught Euculano for fifth on lap 15. Euculano settled for sixth.

Heats for the 13 sprint cars were won by Hammaker and Sneeringer.

Craley’s Bill Diehl raced to his third straight Trail-Way win in the 20-lap Central PA Legends feature. Diehl started on the pole and led the first two laps before outside front row starter Chad Earnst took the lead on lap three. Earnst led the next 11 laps before slowing and spinning into the infield on during a 15th-lap caution. Diehl inherited the lead back and led the rest of the way, with Scott Houdeshell, Bob Stough, Rocky Magaro, and Mason Chaney rounding out the top five.

Heats for the 19 Legends were won by Stough and Houdeshell.

Division organizer Rohan Beasley and lady driver Hannah Riser both scored their first-ever Trail-Way “Sidewinder” wins in the twin 12-lap 1000cc micro-sprint features.

Beasley won the opener, with Brett Strickler and Mike Zielonis finishing second and third. Beasley grabbed the lead from Strickler as the two closed on a lapped car exiting turn two of lap eight.

Riser started on the pole in the second feature and led every lap, with Jim Young and Zach Overmiller crossing second and third.

Kyle Rohrbaugh came from tenth starting spot to claim his fourth win of the year and 32nd career win in a wild 15-lap limited stock feature.

Outside front row starter Michael Kolodiej, Jr. led the first four laps before getting out of shape and coming to a stop in turn two of lap five. Polesitter Johnny Sibirtzeff then assumed the lead for one lap before yielding to sixth-starting Terry Hartlaub. Hartlaub also led just one lap before Rohrbaugh took the lead for good on lap seven.

Eighth-starting Sarah Redmond came on strong late to finish second, with Jason Chronister, Hartlaub, and Kenny Startzman completing the top five.

Heats for the 17 limited stocks were won by Jason Chronister and Julio Perez.

Williams Grove Speedway Cancels Friday Racing After Fatal Crash,

August 15 Saturday Series Program Is Also Cancelled

8/14/15

Mechanicsburg - Williams Grove Speedway cancelled its racing program midway through practice laps on Friday night after a racing accident claimed the life of sprint car driver James ?Jim? Campbell Jr., of Feasterville.

The accident took place in the third corner of the speedway during warm ups.

The staff and management of Williams Grove Speedway express and extend sincere sympathy to the Campbell family at this difficult time.

The Saturday Series racing program slated for August 15 has also been cancelled out of the utmost respect for the Campbell family as well as for all speedway employees, staff, management and emergency personnel as they all attempt to deal with the tragedy at hand.

Rainchecks from the August 14 racing program will of course be honored.

Hodnett Becomes First Repeat Winner In Port Royal Dream Race, Earning $10,820

Spring Grove star tracks down Ott for victory

Dan Stone Wins Late Model Dream Main Over Andy Haus

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

8/8/15

Port Royal  Greg Hodnett hustled forward from his eighth starting spot to become the first repeat winner in the nine-year history of the Living Legends Dream Race for sprint cars at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night.

It took until late in the 35-lap main for Hodnett to get the lead from Aaron Ott before going on to record the victory by 2.593 seconds, his fifth of the season at the historic oval.

Including his earnings from the second semi feature along with lap money, Hodnett took home $10,820 for his night of work.

His first win in the prestigious dream event was in 2008.

In the 21-lap super late model main, .Dan Stone of Thompson took his first victory of the season at the track, totaling $2,270 for the win including lap money.

The night?s events were run in honor of veteran driver Scott Haus and car owner Ed Powell, both of whom received Living Legend proclamations and lifetime passes to the renowned facility.

Aaron Ott started second in the Dream A Main for sprints with Mike Erdley on the pole and Ott took command at the drop of the green with Brock Zearfoss racing third.

The high-speed travelers entered the backmarkers on the seventh tour of the event shortly before the first caution of the feature appeared with nine laps recorded, finding Hodnett racing fourth in the field after passing Dylan Cisney, Steve Buckwalter, Danny Dietrich and Pat Cannon. .

Buckwalter, a semi main winner earlier in the night, got around Hodnett on the restart and it took the eventual winner another lap or two to reclaim the spot and then track down Zearfoss for third.

Hodnett took third from Zearfoss with 11 laps to go just before another yellow appeared, forcing a stoppage for refueling.

But before the stoppage, Erdley had begun biting into Ott?s advantage, clearly catching the leader on the track while slicing tenths of a second off of the lead with the passing of every lap.

However when action resumed Hodnett jumped to Erdley?s inside in the second corner to take the runner up spot and set his sights on leader Ott.

Ott was running the cushion with Hodnett forced to try to make time on the middle and bottom grooves and the strategy worked as he consistently kept pace with the leader and raced just a few car lengths behind Ott as the race wore on.

With five laps to go Hodnett got serious about his challenges and finally made his move with a run inside the second corner that led to a drag race with Ott down the backchute and into the third corner on the 33rd lap.

Hodnett powered into command at that point and Ott proved no contest over the final two circuits.

Hodnett noted that under the stoppage he noticed that leader Ott seemed to have blistered his tires and indeed Ott agreed in post race interviews, stating that the loss was hard to take but getting a podium with the class of field in attendance was an accomplishment.

Ott finished second, taking home a total of $6,400 on the night including lap money and semi feature earnings.

Zearfoss surged late to steal third from Erdley and pocket a total of $4,410 on the night after claming one of the semi features as well and lap money.

Erdley ended up fourth, going home with $3,190 including lap money.

Finishing fifth was previous Dream winner Ryan Taylor, who pocketed an even $2,000 on the night.

Sixth through 10th went to Steve Buckwalter, Danny Dietrich, Mike Wagner, Lucas Wolfe and Pat Cannon.

Lucas Wolfe earned feature hard chargers laurels worth $150 after winning the consolation race to qualify.

The first semi main was marred with crashes and red flags but was eventually won by Zearfoss over Ott and Cannon.

The first red was on the third lap when Port Royal point leader Lucas Wolfe rolled over in the fourth turn.

The second and final red took place on lap five when Dave Hahn flipped violently out over the third turn rail, landing a considerable distance from the track itself but escaping injury.

Several drivers running at the front dropped out of the event including Blane Heimbach, and Dave Blaney.

Lance Dewease led the first four laps of the second semi before dropping out, handing the lead and win over to Buckwalter with Erdley in second and Dietrich riding home third at the finish.

Hard chargers in the semis earning $100 were Dylan Cisney and Hodnett.

Fast time for the first semi and overall on the night was set by Cannon with a lap of 15.364 while Danny Dietrich was second quick overall with a lap of 15.406.

Rodney Westhafer took home $500 for a victory in the non-qualfiers main to end the night.

Tim Wilson led the first four laps of the 21-lap late model main before dropping out of the event, handing the point to Dan Stone.

Stone had started second in the field with Wilson on the pole.

Stone was all alone out front for the balance of the event with Andy Haus starting ninth in the field to finish second.

Haus got by Trent Brenneman for the spot with 11 laps to go an while at times able to cut into Stone?s advantage, he was never able to consistently closer on the leader, instead finishing second by 4.141 seconds.

Dylan Yoder was racing second and closing on Stone on the eighth tour when he lost power and withdrew from the event.

Matt Parks rode home third after starting eighth in the field.

Brenneman was fourth at the finish followed by Mitch Hack.

Sixth through 10th went to Coleby Frye, Devin Friese, Nick Dickson, Mike Lupfer and Brett Schadel.

Heats worth $33 each went to Haus, Parks and Friese with Andrew Yoder taking the consolation.

Fast time worth $100 was set by Jeff Miller with a lap of 19.028 seconds.

Steve Fannasy, Matt Nailor and Jeff Haag Win Williams Grove Speedway Saturday Features

Mechanicsburg, PA., August 9, 2015

Hard work propelled Steve Fannasy to his first 2015 Williams Grove Speedway Super Sportsman victory. The week prior his car received heavy damage in a grinding last-lap crash. Each night his crew spent long hours in the shop rebuilding their vehicle. The long hours and missed sleep resulted in a dominating win.

Steve Fannasy started the 20-lap Blazer’s Body Shop Super Sportsman feature on the outside of the front row. Working the preferred bottom lane, Fannasy held a comfortable lead over Kenny Edkin, Chad Trout, Gregg Foster, and Mike Enders.

Fannasy’s 1.25-second lead disappeared on lap six due to a caution. Following the restart Fannasy continued to dominate, again building a large lead. Chad Trout wrestled second position from Kenny Edkin.

The battle of the event was for sixth involving Chad Criswell, Scott Dellinger, Bobby Hockenberry, Tony Jackson, Rich Eichelberger, Frankie Herr, and Jay Fannasy. On the 14th circuit Frankie Herr’s car made contact with the inside fencing entering turn one, creating the second and final caution of the race. Herr, the point leader, pitted and rejoined the competition.

Steve Fannasy had no challengers the remaining laps. The Dauphin driver crossed the finish line 20 lengths ahead of Chad Trout, Kenny Edkin, Gregg Foster, and Mike Enders. The victory is Fannasy’s fourth career at Williams Grove. Steve Fannasy won a Super Sportsman feature at Lincoln Speedway earlier in the year.

Heat wins for the 29 entries went to Jay Fannasy, Edkin and Dellinger. The consolation went to Doug Dodson. Timmie Barrick received the Sprint Aces Hard Charger award.

Pat Beard led the opening circuits of the 20-lap Credit Connection Auto Sales 358 Late Model main event. Al Cheney was in second with third-place starter Matt Nailor holding third. Beard had a four-length advantage over Cheney when the engine shut off in Pat Beard’s machine. Beard quietly came to a stop on the front stretch resulting in the race’s only caution.

Al Cheney was the new leader with Matt Nailor, Shaun Jones, Ron Kline, and Travis Mease in pursuit. Matt Nailor, in the seventh lap, passed Cheney to become the third leader of the event. One lap later Ron Kline charged into second place.

Over the final ten laps Ron Kline began a relentless assault on Matt Nailor’s lead. Several times Kline was door-to-door through the turns with Nailor; each time Nailor would gain a slight lead on the straightaways.

With five laps remaining Kline changed his line and tried an outside pass in turns three and four. The leaders were even exiting turn four with Nailor winning the race into turn one. Ron Kline made a final attempt with two-laps remaining but Matt Nailor resisted the bid.

Matt Nailor, from Shermansdale, drove the McNeal entry to a three-length win over Ron Kline. Shaun Jones was third with Billy Wampler in fourth and Cam Zeigler was fifth. The win is Nailor’s first of the year and his second career at Williams Grove.

Kline and Alan Sagi won the preliminaries for the 17-car field. Billy Wampler won the Artwerks Hard Charger award.

Greg Diehl led the start of the 15-lap Aquafun Pools Street Stock feature. Chris Heller, Dustin Hollinger, Walt Lemmon, and Steven Dove were trailing. The first of two cautions came on lap four for a five-car crash in turn four.

Diehl continued to lead following the restart with Heller, Lemmon and Dove close behind. Jeff Haag, the ninth-place starter, was fifth. During the sixth circuit several of the lead cars slowed avoiding a tangle allowing Jeff Haag to sprint into second

Greg Diehl’s eight-length edge disappeared with a lap-ten caution. Following the restart Haag attacked the bottom lane. In the 12th lap Haag used the bottom of turn four to pass Diehl.

Greg Diehl received a challenge from Kory Sites allowing Jeff Haag to gain a five-length lead. Haag, from Auburn, won his fifth, ninth all-time at Williams Grove, of the year by six lengths. Greg Diehl and Kory Sites were even off the final turn and Diehl finished second by two feet over Sites. Craig Morgan was fourth and Doug Hoffman was fifth.

Eric Tipp and Sites won the heats for the 22 entries. Dalton Frye won the Artwerks Hard Charger award. The entire show was completed in two hours and thirty-five minutes.

STUTTS BECOMES FOURTH AND FINAL LEADER FOR 360 SPRINT WIN; KNAUB EARNS FIRST CAREER SELINSGROVE SUPER LATE MODEL VICTORY; MITCH POWERS TO FOURTH PRO STOCK CHECKERS; SNOOK REPEATS IN ROADRUNNER RACING

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – TJ Stutts of Liverpool became the fourth and final leader before driving to his second win of the season in Saturday night’s 25-lap 360 sprint car main event at Selinsgrove Speedway.

Stutts, at the wheel of the Wise Motorsports No. 23, earned $2,000 for his 22nd career win at the track in 358-360 sprint car competition.

Gene Knaub of Dover powered to his first career win in super late model racing at Selinsgrove in the division’s 25-lap feature. Knaub is a former limited late model winner at the track.

Brad Mitch of McClure won his fourth race of the season in the 15-lap pro stock feature, while Dustin Snook also of McClure scored his second 12-lap roadrunner win in a row.

Selinsgrove Speedway will present the rescheduled Mach 1 Chassis National Open for 360 sprint cars plus super late models at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 15. The Open will pay $10,000 to win out of a $35,000 purse for 360 sprint cars. Track gates will open at 5 p.m.

On the initial start of the sprint car feature, two-time winner Eric Tomacek flipped over in his racer in turn four. Tomacek escaped injury.

For the double-file restart, polesitter John Braim powered into the early lead. Braim was chased by sixth-place starter Cody Keller for the first two laps before Keller took the lead with an inside pass in turn one. At the same time, eighth-place starter Ryan Kissinger advanced to second while 10th-place starter Derek Locke raced in third.

At the halfway point, 12th-place starter TJ Stutts dueled with Locke for the third position. While pacing under caution on lap 19, Keller’s car developed a flat tire, forcing him to give up the lead. Kissinger inherited the front spot and led for a single lap until his car developed mechanical problems and stopped on the frontstretch.

Stutts took over the lead at Kissinger’s expense and drove to a 2.7 second margin of victory over Locke, ninth-place starter Jason Shultz, fifth-place starter Eric Parker, and 14th-place starter Nate Snyder.

Second-place starter Hayes Mattern pulled into the early lead in the super late model main event with polesitter Dave Brouse Sr. in pursuit. Fourth-place starter Jason Smith took over second on the second circuit as seventh-place starter Gene Knaub horsepowered his way into the third position.

On lap seven, Knaub drove into the runner-up position as ninth-place starter Matt Cochran moved into third. For several laps, Mattern and Knaub dueled for the lead. On the 11th lap, Knaub secured the front spot racing out of turn four. The next lap Cochran took over second and closed in on Knaub.

On a lap 20 restart, Cochran pulled alongside of Knaub and challenged for the lead. Knaub fought back and eventually opened up a 2.3 second margin to score the win over Cochran, 13th-place starter Chris Casner, 10th-place starter Dave Zona, and 12th-place starter Jeff Rine.

Polesitter Matt Wilson held off the challenges of third-place starter Dave Brouse Jr. for the first five laps of the pro stock feature. On the sixth circuit, Brouse took command of the field and had to contend with eighth-place starter Brad Mitch. Late in the race, fifth-place starter Kyle Bachman made it a close three-car battle at the front of the pack.

Racing into turn one on the 13th circuit, Brouse struck a slower car and ended his chances of a victory. Mitch took over the lead and held off Bachman by just .78 of a second for the win. Wilson, AJ Stroup, and Andrew Shoop completed the top five.

Second-place starter Dustin Snook wired the field for his second win of the season in the roadrunner main event. Snook was chased by third-place starter Bob Bussey for the entire distance. At the checkered flag, Snook was victorious by 5.25 seconds over Bussey, John Fowler Jr., Butch Shaffer, and Brandon Shultz.

LEIBY BECOMES 10TH WINNER IN 13 RACES IN LINCOLN ‘358’ SPRINTS;

Stough pads points lead with Central PA Legends win; Sixeas best of PA mini-stocks

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 8/8/2015 –How dominant was Chandler Leiby at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night?

So dominant that he gave up a half-lap lead when the final caution flag of the event came out with five laps to go, and so dominant that his margin of victory was 6.82 seconds at the end. And so dominant that only eight cars finished on the lead lap.

“It’s all because of these guys right here,” said Leiby in pointing to his crew after scoring his first win of the year and claiming the $2,700 top prize in race 3 of the four-race Nouse Signs & Graphics Summer Series feature event, “This car was fast tonight, and thanks to Fred (Putney) for an awesome track. You could run anywhere here tonight.”

Ryan Higgins started on the outside of the front row and led the first two laps before yielding to fourth-starting Leiby on lap three.

Leiby covered nearly every square foot of the surface in successfully maneuvering lapped traffic over the middle stages of the race. There were four lapped cars between Leiby and second-place Matt Campbell when a caution came out for a spin by Wyatt Hinkle in turns one and two of lap 20.

One lap later, Jeff Halligan blew a motor on the backstretch and dropped oil on the track. Last week’s winner Kody Lehman rolled over Halligan’s left rear and barrel-rolled down the backstretch, collecting Brad McClelland, who rolled into the third turn. None of those driver were injured.

While circling to line up for the restart, Campbell had a tire go down and pitted to make the change, handing the runner-up spot to points contender Doug Hammaker.

That made difference to Leiby, who still had four lapped cars between his Leiby’s Seal Coating/MATCO Tools #119 and Hammaker. Leiby drove away to his third career Lincoln win, with Hammaker second, series sponsor and hard-charger Kevin Nouse third (after starting 15th), Chris Arnold fourth, and Jeff Rohrbaugh fifth. Campbell came back to finish sixth, with Adrian Shaffer and Ryan Higgins the only other cars on the lead lap.

Unofficially, Hammaker’s second-place finish combined with Campbell’s sixth put Hammaker back on top of the season-long points chase by just five points.

Heats for the 33 358’s on hand were won by Rohrbaugh, Higgins, Doug Hammaker, and McClelland, with Brie Hershey winning the consolation.

Bob Stough padded his points lead by leading all but one lap in the 15-lap Central PA Legends feature event. Though he was scored the leader on every lap but lap nine (Harlon Leppo), Stough bounced back and forth between first and third in a three-car battle for the lead several times in the middle of several laps.

Bill Diehl crossed second, followed by Leppo, Chad Earnst, and Joe Ehrisman.

Heats for the 26 Central PA Legends on hand were won by Scott Haudeshell, Travis McClelland, and Justin Mitchell, with Justice Forbes winning the consolation.

Mercersburg’s Shane Sixeas started third, wrestled the lead away from Jeremy Ott on the fourth lap, and led the rest of the way in the 20-lap main event for PA mini-stocks.

Frankie Gordon came through from 11th-starting spot to grab the runner-up spot from Ott late in the race and cross second, with Ott settling for third, 14th-starting LeRoy Long fourth, and 15th-starting Zach Myers fifth.

Heats for the 17 PA mini-stocks on hand were won by Ott and Sixeas.

Next Saturday night, August 15, 2015 it will be PREMIER AUTO WORKS/AUTO LOCATOR NIGHT for the 410 Sprints, along with an EMMR Exhibition. Gates open at 5:30 PM, with racing action getting underway at 7:30 PM.

Cannon Breaks Through For Elusive Williams Grove Sprints Win

Hammaker gets second of season in 358s and takes point lead

8/7/15

Mechanicsburg ? Pat Cannon of Etters broke through for an elusive 410 sprint car victory at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, taking the win over Greg Hodnett.

In the 358 sprint feature, Grantville?s Doug Hammaker scored his second victory of the season in the division while taking over the point lead.

Rick Lafferty started second and took the lead when action began in the 25-lap 410 sprint main over fourth starter Cannon.

Cannon chased Lafferty, racing less than a second behind him, for numerous laps, trying to get by him on the inside as the leader worked the cushion.

After failing in a few attempts, Cannon finally made an inside drive in turns three and four work as the pair raced toward the stripe to complete lap 14.

But while Cannon was working at the front, ninth starter Danny Dietrich was bolting through the pack, taking fifth with 10 away before getting around Lucas Wolfe on the 12th tour.

A lap later Dietrich was around Tim Glatfelter and chasing down the front duo and with 10 to go, Dietrich had passed Lafferty as well to be running down Cannon.

Cannon had stretched out a healthty lead by the time Dietrich took second but shortly after the Gettysburg driver got into the spot, he came up with a severe vibration in the rear of the car that ended up sidelining him for the night after he dropped off the pace for several laps.

A caution flag for a stopped Dietrich with five to go placed Lucas Wolfe directly on Cannon?s tail for a restart but Cannon proved up to the task when action resumed and then he pulled away from Wolfe yet again on another restart with two laps to go to pick up his fifth career win in full sprint competition at the track.

On the final restart, Greg Hodnett drove low to get around Wolfe for second however Hodnett failed to challenge for the victory, crossing the line 1.286 seconds behind at the finish.

Wolfe was third followed by Glatfelter and Lafferty.

Sixth through 10th went to Lance Dewease, Brian Montieth, Austin Hogue, Alan Krimes and Steve Buckwalter.

Heats went to Dewease and Hodnett.

Todd Reed took the early lead in the 358 sprint main chased by fourth starter Chandler Leiby.

However Chad Trout moved quickly forward from the sixth starting spot to be challenging Reed for the lead when a caution flag unfurled with three laps down in the 20-lapper.

Reed withstood challenges on the restart and then along came ninth starter Doug Hammaker to take the top spot.

Hammaker got by Reed on the sixth tour with Trout, Kevin Nouse and Chase Dietz still in the picture.

Dietz started 11th in the field and tracked to the front to be third at the halfway point.

The only other driver to own more than one oval victory this season coming into the race, Dietz took second from Nouse with four to go but ran out of time to run down the leader.

Nouse was third followed by Leiby and Phil Walter.

Sixth through 10th went to Matt Campbell, Kody Lehman, Reed, Rich Eichelberger and Bill Stine.

Heats went to Trout, Nouse and Lehman.

SNEERINGER RACES TO FIFTH WIN OF THE YEAR IN TRAIL-WAY 358 SPRINTS; TRAVIS SCOTT WINS THIRD IN-A-ROW IN 600CC MICRO-SPRINTS; WINNER DISQUALIFIED, STREMMEL DECLARED WINNER OF STREET STOCKS; MATT CHRONISTER AGAIN IN LIMITED STOCKS

HANOVER, PA (8/7/2015) – Spring Grove’s Isaac Sneeringer padded his points lead with his fifth win of the year in Friday night’s 25-lap “358” sprint car feature at Trail-Way Speedway.

“This is awesome!” exclaimed Sneeringer upon exiting his DCI Racing/Todd Gosnell Paving/Legacy #19Z in victory lane, “This is the hardest I had to drive because the top was so fast.”

“Racing for this championship really has the pressure on. I’m nervous before every race,” continued Sneeringer, “This is a big win. Last week we started 12th and only got to fourth.”

Sneeringer started second when Nat Tuckey opted for the rear, and led every lap, crossing 3.55 seconds ahead of hard charger Brad McClelland at the checkered.

McClelland, who started 11th, was running third when Brandon Noel flipped into the second-turn catch fence on lap 18. He then assumed second after Seth Kearchner went to the pits with a hole in the radiator during the red flag period, but had to deal with a lapped car for two laps after the restart and was never able to close on Sneeringer.

Seventh-starting Cody Fletcher finished third, with Wyatt Hinkle the only other car on the lead lap in fourth.

Completing the top five one lap down was Zach Euculano.

Qualifiers for the 11 sprint cars were won by Fletcher and McClelland.

Travis Scott scored the win in race two of the three-race “Mid Summer Shootout” for the 600cc micro-sprints. Scott started on the pole and led every lap for his third straight Trail-Way win.

Seventh-starting Brad Weber crossed second, with ninth-starting Jim Young, lady driver Hannah Riser, and Hayden Miller completing the top five. With his fifth-place finish, Miller leads the “Mid Summer Shootout” heading into the final race at Path Valley Speedway tomorrow (Saturday) night.

Heats for the 19 micros were won by Garrett Bard and Tyler Walton.

Travis Leh scored his first career Trail-Way win in the 20-lap street stock feature, but then had it taken away when he failed a post-race inspection (illegal heads).

That gave the win to Jeremy Stremmel, who was at the rear from the start of the race until lap 15.

A series of cautions helped Stremmel climb through the field to assume fourth when Dan Furman and Dalton Myers brought out the caution on lap 15. Furman was able to make a tire change in time to get back on the track by the restart. Stremmel then assumed second on lap 18 when Matt Wampler was sent to the rear for roughriding, and finished there.

After Leh’s disqualification and Stremmel’s ultimate win, Furman was credited with second. Wampler and Kelly Seal III were the only other two cars running at the end, and were credited with third and fourth. Credited with fifth was Eric Johnson, who rode the front stretch wall and blew two tires on the frontstretch as he completed lap 18.

Heats for the 10 street stocks were won by Wampler and Seal.

Matt Chronister came from 10th starting spot to claim his seventh win of the year in the 15-lap limited stock feature. Chronister wrestled the lead away from polesitter and race-long leader Justin Wagaman on lap 10 and never looked back, crossing under the checkered flag in a non-stop time of five minutes, 13.22 seconds.

Kyle Rohrbaugh finished second, with Terry Hartlaub, Kenny Startzman, and Julio Perez rounding out the top five.

Qualifiers for the 20 limited stocks were won by Jason and Matt Chronister.

Trail-Way is back in action Friday August 14th, hosting the 358 Sprints, Street Stocks, Central PA Legends and the 1000cc Sidewinder Sprints. Gates open at 5:30 p.m., with heats beginning at 7:45 p.m.

Williams Grove Speedway Saturday Night News

Scott Dellinger, Randy Christine Jr., and Doug Bennett Win Williams Grove Speedway Saturday Night Features

Mechanicsburg, PA., August 2, 2015

“You have to go where the car works,” Scott Dellinger said following his victory in Saturday night’s Williams Grove Speedway Saturday Night Series Super Sportsman feature. “I have been learning that a lot. You can’t keep trying the same thing over and over. If it doesn’t work you have to go somewhere else.”

Devin Beidel started on the pole at the beginning of the 20-lap Blazer’s Body Shop Super Sportsman main event. Beidel led the way with Todd Leonard, Kenny Edkin and Rich Eichelberger giving chase. Sixth-place starter Scott Dellinger was in fifth.

In the third circuit Kenny Edkin became the new leader with Scott Dellinger charging into second. Dellinger, using the low line, made several challenges for the lead. Behind the lead duo, Devin Beidel, Jay Fannasy, Chad Criswell, Frankie Herr, and Rich Eichelberger were in a tight battle for third.

Following a lap nine restart, Scott Dellinger switched lanes and went to the top. During the 11th pass of the half-mile oval, Dellinger used the top of turns three and four to pass Edkin.

Dellinger, from Lewisberry, had a 20-length lead before the caution came out on the final lap. As the cars came up to speed, Chad Criswell’s car shot to the inside and struck the front stretch fencing, triggering a large crash. Mike Enders’ machine rolled over in the melee while the cars of Chad Smith and Steve Fannasy made hard contact with the outside fencing, knocking down a section of protective fence.

The speedway’s track crew spent an hour repairing the fence. During that time speedway officials made the decision to penalize point leader Frankie Herr to the rear of the field for contact with Chad Criswell’s car.

Scott Dellinger led the final lap to win his second of the year by five lengths over Rich Eichelberger. Kenny Edkin was third with Devin Beidel in fourth and Jay Fannasy was fifth.

Eichelberger, Jay Fannasy and Beidel won the Super Sportsman heats for the 28 entries with Chad Smith taking the consolation. Nate Young received the Sprint Aces Hard Charger award.

Brad Shank led the start of the 20-lap Credit Connection Auto Sales 358 Late Model feature. Dan Zechman, Jed Latshaw and Cam Zeigler were close behind. Randy Christine Jr., the third-place starter, held fifth.

Dan Zechman went to the low lane to challenge leader Brad Shank. Zechman, in the fifth circuit, hugged the bottom of turns three and four to sweep by Brad Shank. Cam Zeigler was third with Randy Christine Jr., in fourth.

The event’s first caution occurred on lap eight. Zechman continued to lead with Shank in second and Christine advancing into third. Two-laps later the caution returned. Randy Christine Jr., had the perfect restart, roaring past Shank and Zechman to become the new leader.

Randy Christine Jr. held an eight-length lead over Dan Zechman. The race had a final-lap caution. Christine led the final lap and the Manchester Missile won his first Williams Grove Speedway feature by four lengths over Dan Zechman. Brad Shank, Wes Alleman and Cam Zeigler completed the top five.

Matt Nailor, Billy Wampler and Sam Gallagher won the qualifying event for the 25-car field. Ron Kline received the Hard Charger award.

The 15-lap Aquafun Pools Street Stock main event began with a large first turn crash. After clearing the carnage, Doug Bennett, the third-place starter, sprinted into the lead followed by Steven Dove, Craig Morgan, Dustin Hollinger, and Kory Sites.

Bennett gained a five-length edge while Dove, Morgan and Sites fought for third. Following an early caution, the remainder of the race had no yellows allowing Bennett to set a rapid pace.

Craig Morgan took control of second and slowly closed the gap. With four-laps remaining Morgan narrowed the lead to two lengths. With two-laps remaining Morgan pulled beside Bennett in turns three and four. Bennett held off the challenge.

Doug Bennett, from Chambersburg, won his first Williams Grove Speedway feature by four lengths over Craig Morgan. Steven Dove, Jeff Haag and Kory Sites completed the top five.

Morgan, Greg Diehl and Jasen Geesaman won the heats for the 30 entries with the consolation going to Eric Tripp. The Artwerks Hard Charger award went to Ryan Smith.

Williams Grove Speedway’s Saturday Night Series returns to action August 8 featuring the Blazer’s Body Shop Super Sportsman, Credit Connection Auto Sales 358 Late Models and Aquafun Pools Street Stocks. Racing action commences at 7 PM. Adult admission is $6 with children 12 and under free.

STILLWAGGON WINS KRAMER CUP FOR 360 SPRINT CARS; FRYE & MITCH SCORE STOCK CAR WINS

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Robbie Stillwaggon of Burlington, N.J. powered to his first win of the season in the second annual Selinsgrove Ford Kramer Cup for 360 sprint cars Saturday night at Selinsgrove Speedway.

The $2,573 victory, at the wheel of the Quality Auto Body No. 89, marked Stillwaggon’s second career at the track in the United Racing Club sanctioned event that was a tribute to the late Hall of Fame sprint car driver and former Selinsgrove champion Kramer Williamson.

A stray shower at 7 p.m. caused a nearly three-hour delay to the start of Saturday night’s racing program which was spun off at a fast pace once the first green flag waved about 10 p.m. with a big crowd and strong field of race cars in attendance.

Coleby Frye of Dover scored his first win of the season at Selinsgrove by just half of a second over Dave Zona of Montrose in the 25-lap super late model feature.

Brad Mitch of McClure drove to his third win of the year in the 15-lap pro stock feature.

Selinsgrove Speedway will present a four division racing show featuring the 360 sprint cars, super late models, pro stocks, and roadrunners on Reinhart Food Service Night at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 8. The Eastern Museum of Motor Racing will also have a classic race car display set up behind the covered grandstand prior to the start of Saturday’s show. Track gates will open at 5 p.m.

With URC sprint regulars Curt Michael and Robbie Stillwaggon sharing the front row for the start of the Kramer Cup, Stillwaggon pulled into the early lead and quickly showed he had a capable race car. With five laps down, Stillwaggon set a torrid pace on the lightning-quick speedway over Michael, fourth-place starter TJ Stutts, sixth-place starter Mark Smith, and third-place starter Derek Locke.

Stutts stormed into the runner up position a lap later and completed a pass for the lead only to have it called back when the caution flag unfurled on lap seven. When the race resumed, Stillwaggon kept the field at bay as eighth-place starter Aaron Ott began to show a lot of speed.

The red flag waved on lap 13 when Jason Clauss’ car had a rear wheel break loose, causing the car to go into a wild spin and flip over on the frontstretch. Clauss escaped injury. An intense five-car battle unfolded at the front of the track between Stillwaggon, Stutts, Smith, Ott, and fifth-place starter Davie Franek when the race resumed.

The caution flag slowed the field again on lap 17 when Colby Womer’s car rolled to a stop in turn four. When the green flag waved, Smith horsepowered his way into the runner up position and attempted to reel in Stillwaggon. At the checkered flag, Stillwaggon was victorious by 2.8 seconds over Smith, Stutts, Ott, and Franek.

Polesitter Danny Snyder led the first three laps of the super late model feature until sixth-place starter Coleby Frye stormed into the lead with an inside pass in turn four. Early in the race, Frye set the pace in front of fifth-place starter Tony Adams, eighth-place starter Dave Zona, and 10th-place starter Jeff Rine in the lead pack.

Zona advanced to second on the eighth circuit and by the halfway point, Rine moved into the third spot with 15th-place starter Dylan Yoder racing in fourth. Steve Campbell, who started 12th, worked his way into the top five, only to develop a flat tire on the 15th circuit.

With four laps to go, Frye drifted high in turn four, almost allowing Zona to drive underneath him for the lead to no avail. On the final lap, Frye held off Zona by just .48 of a second for the win. Rine, Yoder, and Kenny Trevitz completed the top five.

Polesitter Matt Wilson powered into the lead at the start of the pro stock feature and was chased by fourth-place starter Brandon Moser. On the second circuit, eighth-place starter Brad Mitch drove into the runner-up position and set his sights on the leader.

Mitch made the winning pass on the fifth lap and never looked back. During the second half of the race, fifth-place starter Dave Brouse Jr. and 15th-place starter Nathan long dueled for the runner up position.

At the checkered flag, Mitch’s margin of victory was 3.7 seconds over Brouse. Long crossed the line in third but was disqualified when his car failed a post-race technical inspection. Wilson was awarded third, followed by Andrew Shoop and Matt Hornberger in the top five.

Logan Wagner Wins Career First In Central Pa Sprints At Port Royal Saturday,

Tim Smith Jr., Miller & Davis also win

Port Royal – Logan Wagner of Harrisonville scored his first ever Central Pa 410 sprint car win on Saturday night at Port Royal Speedway, holding off Lucas Wolfe for the $3,200 victory.

In the extra distance super late model main, Tim Smith Jr. of Long Hollow scored the victory, taking the lead from Trent Brenneman early to pull away in the contest.

And in the 305 sprint main, Jeff Miller Jr. scored his third win of the season in the division while Jason Davis scored victory in the xtreme stock championship.

Davey Sammons took the lead at the start of the 25-lap 410 sprint main with Ryan Taylor running second on the second lap.

Logan Wagner started third in the field and drove by Taylor for second on the fourth lap before going to work on Sammons.

Wagner hounded leader Sammons for the next five laps as the pair both ran the high cushion until he was finally able to blast to Sammons’ outside for the lead coming off of turn four.

Wagner did his best to keep a steady gait once in control, working through thick packs of lapped cars as the race worked toward the midway point.

It was then that point leader Lucas Wolfe, who started eighth, broke into the top five and with 12 laps to go, Wolfe was up to third.

Two laps later Wolfe darted around Sammons for second but before he could start erasing Wagner’s advantage, the races only caution appeared with 10 laps to go.

With lapped cars separating the leaders, Wolfe opened up a bit of breathing room over Wolfe when action resumed but Wolfe was quickly back into contention with five laps to go, just as Wagner again entered the backmarkers.

Wolfe may have had a chance late in the event until Wagner made a daring move to hold onto his coveted first Port Royal win by narrowly squeezing between the outside wall and the Ed Aikin to put him a lap down with two laps to go.

That maneuver by Wagner sealed the deal for the second-generation driver who grew up watching the races at Port Royal from the old covered grandstand and playing in the dirt at the track while his dad Mike raced.

Wolfe crossed the line 1.215 seconds behind in second followed by Sammons, elder Wagner patriarch Mike and Taylor.

Sixth through 10th went to Greg Hodnett, Kevin Nouse, Brent Marks, Lance Dewease and Doug Esh.

Heats for the 29 cars in action went to Sammons, Logan Wagner and Dylan Cisney with Brock Zearfoss taking the consolation.

Two failed starts of the 25-lap super late model main that scattered numerous cars on both occasions finally gave way to a first lap with Andrew Yoder leading.

Fifth starter Trent Brenneman took the lead from Yoder on the second tour just before a yellow flag slowed the pace.

Tim Smith Jr. lined up third for the restart and when green reappeared he went to work and motored by both cars in front of him to take command of the field.

And once at the front, there was no catching him, as he took the victory by a margin of 5.724 seconds.

Mitch Hack got by Brenneman on the 14th tour but failed to close on the leader.

Brenneman settled for third followed by Bryan Bernheisel and Mike Lupfer.

Sixth through 10th went to Andy Haus, Derrick Casner, Scott Flickinger, Steve Stitt and Mike Mort.

Heats went to Brenneman and Bernheisel.

Tom Worrick led the first three laps of the 18-lap 305 sprint main before Zach Newlin got the lead but ninth starter Bill Jones Jr. had designs on the top spot and took control on the ninth tour.

Miller started 11th in the field and blasted through the pack to be up to second for a restart with two laps to go.

And that proved to be the end of Jones’ race for the victory as Miller took the lead on the final lap as he shot off of the second turn.

Jones was second followed by Tyler Reeser, Newlin and Scott Ellerman.

Heats for the 29-car field went to Reeser, Jones, Ellerman and Reed Thompson with the consolation being claimed by Ron Aurand.

Jen Zook controlled the first eight laps of the xtreme stock championship event before Corey Kepner took over.

But shortly after getting the lead, he and Jason Zook tangled on the frontchute while racing for control, handing the lead to Bill Powell.

Powell assumed the top spot but with six laps to go Jason Davis became the fourth and final leader to pick up the win.

Powell was second at the finish followed by Walt Peters, Tyler Amtower and early leader Jen Zook.

Sat., August 8, 2015 (7:30 PM) - 358 Sprint “Nouse Signs & Graphics Summer Series” - 358 Sprints, Central PA Legends & 4-Cylinder Stocks

DIETRICH CONTINUES SPECTACULAR 2015 SEASON WITH LINCOLN 410 SPRINT WIN;

Kody Lehman claims first career Lincoln win in 358 sprints; Joe Ehrisman celebrates 19th birthday with first career Central PA Legends win

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 8/1/2015 – Danny Dietrich is on fire.

Dietrich came from 12th starting spot to claim his second straight Lincoln Speedway win, third win of the week, and sixth win over the past three weeks in Saturday night’s Pepsi Night 25-lap feature event in the Pigeon Hills. It was Dietrich’s 12th overall win of 2015.

After a spin by polesitter Darren Mollenoyux on the initial start, Glenndon Forsythe assumed the pole and led the first 14 laps, with fifth-starting Robbie Kendall on his tail for 13 of those laps. Meanwhile, Dietrich was charging to the front. He broke the top five by lap seven, advanced to third by lap 11, and made his race winning move around Kendall in turn three and under Forsythe in turn four of lap 15.

“I drove around Robbie and that was close, but I had a full head of steam coming and was hoping he would hear me and see me quick enough.” said Dietrich upon exiting his Sandoe’s Fruit Market/Hickory Run Orchards/Weikert’s Livestock #48 in victory lane, “Just a sequence of events. I got to sit back and watch what they were doing, and I made a last minute move to go to the bottom and I’m glad I did.”

From there, Dietrich checked out on the field, opening up a six-second lead with five laps to go.

Kendall caught Forsythe for the runner-up spot on lap 17, and ran there the rest of the way, finishing 6.31 second behind Dietrich, who won his 28th career Lincoln feature, pulling him into an 11th-place tie with Van May on the all-time Lincoln win list.

“This one of the best tracks we’ve had all year long, so I want to thank Fred Putney for that. This is one of the best tracks we’ve had all year long, The track surface has been getting way better here lately, and it’s allowing you to race. That’s the highest we’ve been up on the fence all year long,” said Dietrich, “These guys behind me did a heck-of-a job. By now everybody’s probably getting sick and tired of it, but we don’t get tired of it. These guys do what they gotta do, they work their butts off, and it’s paying off right now. They got this car rolling.”

Third through fifth were Cory Haas, Tyler Ross, and Alan Krimes. Forsythe settled for sixth, with Jim Siegel, Tim Glatfelter, Kyle Moody, and Gerard McIntyre, Jr. completing the top ten.

Heats for the 27 410’s on hand were won by Glatfelter, Krimes, and Austin Hogue, with Billy Dietrich winning the consolation.

Kody Lehman started on the pole, survived a rash of red flags over the first five laps, and led every lap in scoring his first career Lincoln win in t6he 20-lap 358 sprint car feature. Seventh-stating Adrian Shaffer and ninth-starting Matt Campbell advanced to second and third by lap eight and ran there the rest of the way. Lehman held off the closing Shaffer and Campbell as the three approached lapped traffic in the waning laps, with Lehman’s final margin of victory .66 seconds.

Fourth and fifth were Nike Young (in the 4R car) and Phil Walter.

There were no injuries in the three red flags over the first five laps. Flippers included Jake Eldreth, Chandler Leiby, C.J. Tracy, and Tyler Esh. Esh was actually able to continue after rolling onto his side, and finished 14th.

Heats for the 30 358’s on hand were won by Cole Young, Walter, and Doug Hammaker, with Bill Stine winning the consolation.

Newport’s Joe Ehrisman celebrated his 19th birthday by claiming his first career Central PA Legends feature win. Ehrisman came from 12th starting spot to pass several big guns, including Chad Glatfelter with two laps to go. Ehrisman assumed second for a restart when close racing resulted in a spin by leader Bob Stough on turn four of lap 13. Ehrisman snatched the lead from Glatfelter on the restart, and then held off Glatfelter and Chad Earnst in a one-lap shootout at the end.

Heats for the 24 Central PA Legends on hand were won by Bill Diehl, Scott Haudeshell, and Chad Glatfelter.

Next Saturday night, August 8, 2015, the 358 Sprints become the headline division with another 358 Sprint “Nouse Signs & Graphics Summer Series” event along with the Central PA Legends & 4-Cylinder Stocks. Gates open at 5:30 PM, with racing action getting underway at 7:30 PM.

HANOVER, PA (7/31/2015) – While in victory lane to collect his Big Mike’s Crabhouse hard chager award last week, Brad McClelland said trying to pass Cody Fletcher was like trying to pass a kidney stone.

So it was only fitting that Fletcher and McClelland started on the front row of Friday night’s 25-lap feature at Trail-Way Speedway. This time, McClelland achieved the pass as the two crossed under the green flag to start the race, and led every lap in scoring his fourth win of the year and 46th of his Trail-Way career.

“We got a good start,” said McClelland upon exiting the Littlestown Auto Center/Rucker Computer Solutions/NAPA Auto Parts #6R in victory lane, “We run a little more gear than he (Fletcher) does, and making it to the first turn first was the story tonight.”

McClelland and Fletcher ran first and second the entire way, with sixth-starting Seth Kearchner picking up the hard charger award with his third-place finish. David Holbrook’s left rear tire exploded as his crossed under the checkered flag to be scored fourth, with Cody Fairchok fifth.

Qualifiers for the 13 “358” sprint cars were won by points leader Isaac Sneeringer and Fairchok.

The Myers brothers each scored a win in the inaugural Gary Keifert Memorial Twin 15’s for the Mason-Dixon 270 micro sprints.

Cory Myers started on the pole and led every lap of the first feature, crossing .75 seconds ahead of Steven Cox, Brian Marriott, brother Chad Myers, and Jim Still completing the top five.

Chad Myers assumed the pole position after two false starts in the second feature, and led every lap. Second through fifth were Marriott, Cox, Cory Myers, and Mike Boer.

It was the second career Trail-Way win for both brothers.

Heats for the 23 270’s were won by Marriott, Still, and Cox.

Travis Scott scored his second straight Trail-Way win in the 20-lap 600cc micro-sprint feature. He survived several caution flags to come from 12th-starting spot to the runner-up spot on lap nine. He then assumed the lead when Brad Weber pulled up lame entering turn three of lap 16, and led the rest of the way.

Weber led laps nine through 15 after assuming the lead from Jake Frye when Frye struck a car heading to the pits under a caution flag.

The lone qualifier for the 12 600’s on had was won by Weber.

Eric Johnson claimed his second win of the year and second career win in a wild 20-lap street stock feature. Dalton Myers led the first seven laps before Johnson claimed the lead.

Eighth-starting Dan Furman caught Myers for second on lap 11 and finished there. Eleventh-starting Kevin Sprague assumed third when Michael Goodwin and Matt Wampler brought out the caution flag while racing for third on lap 18 and stayed there. Jeremy Stremmel and the Classic Carf of Roy Denike completed the top five.

Heats for the 17 street stocks were won by Kelly Seal III and Johnson.

Trail-Way swings back into action next Friday August 7th, hosting the 358 Sprints, Limited Stocks, Street Stocks and 600 Micro Sprints. The 600 Micros will be racing in the second leg of a three-track shootout. The shootout will conclude the following night, Saturday August 8th, at Path Valley Speedway.

In the Lelands.com URC sprint nationals, regular 410 sprint driver Greg Hodnett took the win, worth $4,000.

Only two laps of the 25-lap 410 sprint main were recorded before a caution flag bunched the field with Rick Lafferty leading followed by Brent Marks, Pat Cannon and Dietrich.

Marks challenged a cushion-running Lafferty for several laps before finally taking the lead on the seventh tour as Dietrich got by Lafferty on the same lap.

Dietrich then quickly served notice to Marks that he was in the hunt, briefly taking the lead with a third turn swoop on the ninth lap only to see Marks reclaim control back to the line.

After that, Marks settled into the lead a bit before a final yellow unfurled with 12 laps to go.

Dietrich kept Marks withing striking distance on the restart and drew close on some laps and surrendered some ground on others before really beginning to hone in with six laps to go.

As the pair raced through the backmarkers, Dietrich put on his final drive to get the lead with three laps to go, trying Marks first on the inside in turns three and four before going to the outside of Marks in the second turn to get command.

Marks put up a good fight as the pair ran down the backchute but Dietrich would become the leader to take his third Williams Grove win of the season, worth over $4,100.

Marks faded in the final mile and a half to finish second by 2.099 seconds followed by Pat Cannon, Brian Montieth and Lance Dewease.

Sixth through 10th went to Greg Hodnett, Adam Wilt, Aaron Ott, Austin Hogue and Lucas Wolfe.

Heats went to Marks, Cannon and Alan Krimes.

The 25-lap URC sprint feature got off to a rough start with two aborted starts caused by multi-car tangles.

Once the first lap could be recorded, Robbie Stillwaggon was in the lead over Kevin Nouse and Hodnett with Hodnett getting around Nouse for second on the fifth tour.

Stillwaggon was trying to keep Hodnett at bay on the 10th tour when the yellow flag again unfurled, slowing the pace.

And the restart was all that Hodnett needed to cleanly pass Stillwaggon for the lead and win, driving by on the low side in the first turn to get control and begin driving away.

Mark Smith, who was involved in both of the initial start crashes, restarted at the rear twice in the early going and came through the field to garner fifth at the finish.

Curt Michael took second from Stillwaggon with 10 laps go go but failed to close on leader Hodnett.

Nouse was third and Stillwaggon was fourth at the finish.

Sixth through 10th went to Chuck Hebing, Justin Barger, Aaron Ott, Davie Franek and Josh Weller.

Heats for the 36-car field went to Smith, Barger, Nouse and Stillwaggon with Josh Weller taking the consolation race.

THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES

NAPA Auto Parts Presents A Big Night of Racing At Thunder on the Hill Tuesday Night at Grandview Speedway. . . .

DOUBLE “D” DANNY DIETRICH WINS THRILLER OVER GREG HODNETT IN THUNDER CUP 410 SPRINT CHAMPIONSHIP, JEFF STRUNK TOPS 358 MODIFIEDS

The NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series continued Tuesday night at the Grandview Speedway with a 410 sprint car feature event that might very well be the best 410 sprint car racing of year.

With just a handful of starts at the Grandview Speedway, Gettysburg, PA driver Danny “Double D” Dietrich earned his first ever Thunder on the Hill Racing Series feature win, taking the lead from Greg Hodnett with just two laps remaining in the 35 lap Thunder Cup Championship. Hodnett, appeared to be on his way to a fifth consecutive win at Grandview until Danny Dietrich made the winning move to earn the $5,300 first place prize. In the 358 NASCAR Modified feature, Jeff Strunk was the winner of the 30 lap feature earning $3,100 for the victory. The racing program started promptly at 7:30 PM and was complete just minutes before 10:30 PM.

Lucas Wolfe, driving the ZEMCO sprint car set fast time of the night, turning the one-third mile high banked Grandview Speedway in a time of 12:135 seconds. The three 410 sprint car heat race events were won by Lance Dewease, Darren Mollenuyux and Brian Carber. In the 358 Modifieds, Ray Swinehart, Jeff Strunk and Craig VonDohren were the heat race winners as Tim Buckwalter won the consolation.

In the thirty-five lap 410 sprint Thunder Cup, Ryan Smith was the early race leader followed by Danny Dietrich and Greg Hodnett. Smith set an impressive pace until lap five when the caution flag was displayed for Karl Baker who came to a stop on the homestretch. When green flag racing resumed, Ryan Smith continued to set the pace with Dietrich in the hunt.

On lap eleven, Smith was now approaching lapped traffic with Dietrich and Hodnett in striking distance of the lead. On lap thirteen, Hodnett made a run for the lead but Ryan Smith held on to the top spot. Smith and Hodnett thrilled the crowd with their battle for the lead as Hodnett was looking for his fifth win in a row as Ryan Smith was looking for his first Thunder on the Hill victory.

After an intense battle, Hodnett took the lead on lap sixteen followed by Smith, Lucas Wolfe, Lance Dewease and Danny Dietrich. One lap later, Wolfe moved into second and began the task of chasing down Hodnett. As the laps ticked off, Wolfe was cutting into the lead established by Hodnett as all eyes were on the battle for third between Ryan Smith, Danny Dietrich and eleventh place starter Alan Krimes.

Dietrich began another surge to the front, moving into third on lap twenty-two. Wolfe was definitely closing in on Hodnett, but on lap twenty-five, after a homestretch tangle with a slower car, Lucas flipped, displaying the red flag. Wolfe was not injured but the damage to his car kept him for restarting the race.

With ten laps to go, Hodnett was the leader followed by Dietrich, Ryan Smith, Alan Krimes and Lance Dewease. At the drop of the green, Hodnett had the advantage but it was time for Dietrich to take a run for the lead. Dietrich passed Hodnett in turn three but exiting turn four, Hodnett regained the top spot. Alan Krimes was now in third and gaining on the leaders. Dietrich stayed with Hodnett looking for the right opportunity to take another run for the lead. Krimes continued to close in on the leaders.

On lap thirty-two, Hodnett had plenty of company as both Dietrich and Krimes were now challenging in a three car race for the lead. Dietrich made a bold move going into turn three, making a slide across and in front of Hodnett to take the lead. Hodnett made a repeat challenge and at the same time, had to hold off Krimes who was looking to take second.

With the checker flag waiving, the large crowd on hand cheered Dietrich as he crossed the finish line earning his first ever, Thunder on the Hill 410 sprint car feature win. Hodnett earned a well-deserved second place finish as Alan Krimes finished third after starting eleventh. Lance Dewease finished fourth with Freddie Rahmer fifth.

The field of twenty-four 358 NASCAR Modifieds were called to the track with Jeff Strunk and Jimmy Horton bringing the field down for the green flag. Strunk immediately took the lead and quickly established himself as the man to beat. Strunk set a blistering pace with Horton, Ray Swinehart and Billy Pauch Jr in the chase. Danny Erb was on the charge, advancing to the top five by lap six.

At the halfway point of the race, Strunk had a commanding lead over Jimmy Horton, Pauch Jr., Erb and Craig VonDohren. A late race caution brought the field together for one last run to the checker flag. Strunk remained in control of the top spot as Pauch moved closer to challenge Horton for second. Strunk was the dominant star of the night in the 358 NASCAR Modifieds and scored his twelfth Thunder on the Hill victory. Jimmy Horton finished second followed by Billy Pauch Jr., Danny Erb and Craig VonDohren making up the top five.

410 SPRINT THUNDER CUP FINISH: $5,300 To Win Danny Dietrich, Greg Hodnett, Alan Krimes, Lance Dewease, Freddie Rahmer, Ryan Smith, Billy Dietrich, Kyle Reinhart, Brian Carber, Brandon Rahmer, Davey Sammons, Robbie Stillwaggon, Darren Mollenuyux, Justin Barger, Lucas Wolfe, Brad Franks, Kevin Nagy, JJ Grasso, Jimmy Stitzel, Jevon Ahner, Karl Baker.

SECOND ANNUAL KRAMER CUP WILL HONOR MEMORY OF RACING LEGEND KRAMER WILLIAMSON THIS SATURDAY AT SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY; PRE-RACE SELINSGROVE FORD RACE CAR DISPLAY & MARKET STREET PARADE WILL HIGHLIGHT BIG DAY OF MOTORSPORTS EVENTS!

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Selinsgrove Speedway will present the Second Annual Kramer Cup at 7:30 p.m. this Saturday, Aug. 1, to honor the memory of sprint car racing legend Kramer Williamson of Palmyra. The 25-lap 360 sprint car race will pay $2,573 to win and $200 to start.

Williamson succumbed to injuries he sustained in a sprint car racing accident at the Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown in August of 2013. The tribute race will mark the third event of the season at Selinsgrove Speedway sanctioned by the United Racing Club (URC) 360 sprint car contingent.

For most of his racing career, Williamson drove the famous “Pink Panther” No. 73 sprint car and won hundreds of races across the country as well as in Australia and Canada. He clinched sprint car track championships at Selinsgrove Speedway and Williams Grove Speedway, where he also was a former winner of the prestigious Williams Grove National Open. In 2008, Williamson was recognized for his incredible accomplishments in auto racing when he was inducted into the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame in Knoxville, Iowa.

At Selinsgrove Speedway, Williamson’s lone championship was in 1978. His first win in a super sprint car at the track was on Sept. 3, 1973, and his last was on Aug. 10, 1981. He is tied with Barry Camp of Beavertown for the ninth spot on the track’s all-time win list for super sprint cars with 25 career victories.

In recent years, Williamson had been touring on the URC circuit. He scored a single URC win at Selinsgrove on July 8, 1995, which was the last time he won a race at his former home track. In all, Williamson recorded 67 career wins and three championships with URC.

The qualifying format for the Kramer Cup will include heat races and a B-main. The winner of the race will receive a custom pink trophy cup to commemorate the victory.

Joining the 360 sprint cars on the racing card will be the super late models and pro stocks. Track gates will open at 5 p.m.

Members of the Williamson family are expected to be in attendance at the Kramer Cup, including Kramer’s wife Sharon, daughter Felecia, and son Kurtis.

HODNETT CHASES FIFTH-STRAIGHT THUNDER WIN AT GRANDVIEW ON TUESDAY, JULY 28

Over $40,000 To Be Paid Out Plus Added Bonuses

BECHTELSVILLE, Pa. (July 27, 2015) – The NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series presents an exciting double header featuring the region’s most popular racing divisions, the 410 Sprint Cars and the 358 Modifieds, this coming Tuesday, July 28 (Raindate: July 30) at the Grandview Speedway. The already lucrative $40,000-plus purse has been sweetened with qualifying event money and bonuses including a $200 bonus in the Sprint division to any first time Grandview winner.

Heading into the 410 Sprint Car Thunder Cup all eyes are on Thomasville, PA’s Greg Hodnett. The driver of the Heffner Racing Enterprises No. 27 has claimed victories in the past four consecutive Thunder on the Hill events and is easily the favorite heading into this Tuesday’s races. Especially, since Hodnett has been on a roll lately picking up eleven victories this season.

Hodnett’s “drive for five” won’t be a walk in the park as a crop of hungry and talented sprint car drivers are in the hunt for their first ever Thunder on the Hill win – setting their sights on $5,200 for their efforts, as well as a boatload of bragging rights. A number of drivers could knock Hodnett out from the top spot like Gettysburg, PA’s Danny Dietrich fresh off a win over the World of Outlaws at Williams Grove. Mechanicsburg, PA’s Lucas Wolfe, the 2007 Thunder on the Hill Series Champion – who has yet to pick up a Thunder victory and almost defeated Hodnett at the last 410 race on ‘the Hill.’

Other first-time win contenders include: Denver, PA’s Alan Krimes – who has a string of top-5 finishes at Grandview, JJ Grasso of Middletown, DE – who finished second to Hodnett last year, Salford, PA’s, Freddie Rahmer – the son of the Sprint Car legend finished 3rd in last year’s 410 event.

Also expected to be in attendance are: Lance Dewease, Billy Dietrich, Ryan Smith, Davey Sammons, Kyle Reinhardt and Brandon Rahmer

The 358 Modifieds will round out the double header with a 30 lap, $3,000 to win event. During June’s “Traffic Jam”, Oley, PA’s Duane Howard claimed the victory in dominant fashion and did so again this past Saturday night, but you can’t count out currently weekly point leader and the winningest driver in Grandview history, Craig VonDohren. These two have fought door-to-door for years and one could easily expect them to lead the pack to the checkered flag.

But with nine different winners this season at Grandview Speedway and invaders like: Ryan Watt, Ryan Godown and Billy Pauch Jr. the only guarantee is three-wide, wheel-banging, and boiler plate bouncing action.

Thunder on the Hill marketing partners have upped the ante for the Inaugural Thunder Cup event, offering competitor bonuses in both the 410 Sprint Car and 358 Modified divisions.

Quaker Steak & Lube is offering a $50 bonus to heat race event winners in both divisions, with the stipulation that they pre-register.

In the 410 Sprint Car division, a $100 Quick Time Bonus is up for grabs with an additional $100 bonus if the track record is broken, $200 is available to a first time Grandview 410 winner, $200 is offered to the highest finishing 360/358/305 Sprint Car, and $125 is offered to all pre-entered cars that don’t qualify for the A-main.

More than $40,000 in cash prizes is on the line for competitors. In a 35-lap event, the 410 Sprints will chase a lucrative $5,000 to win, $1,000 for tenth position, and $400 to start the event. The 358 Modifieds will compete in a 30-lap event for a $3,000 top prize, with tenth paying $500 and $300 to start the event.

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY

25 July 2015 Steve Inch

STANDING ROOM ONLY CROWD ON HAND FOR TOMECEK, CAMPBELL, STROUP & SNOOK VICTORIES ON DRIVER & FAN APPRECIATION NIGHT!

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – A huge crowd was on hand Saturday evening at Selinsgrove Speedway to watch an exciting four division racing program on Driver & Fan Appreciation Night sponsored by Jeff’s Auto Body & Recycling Center.

Eric Tomecek of Abottstown drove to his second win of the season in the 25-lap 360 sprint car feature at the wheel of the Central Builders Supply Co. No. 1-W. The $2,500 victory was Tomecek’s third career at the track.

Steve Campbell of Danville powered to his third win of the year in the $2,500-to-win, 25-lap super late model main event. The win marked the 48th of Campbell’s career at the track in super late model competition.

AJ Stroup of Evandale wired the field for his first career win in the A&A Auto Stores 14th Annual Pro Stock 20. Stroup collected $1,000 for his 17th overall career victory in the division’s biggest race of the year. Kyle Bachman of Selinsgrove was the night’s pro stock fast qualifier with a lap time of 24.323.

Dustin Snook of McClure closed out the night with his second career win in the 12-lap roadrunner race.

Selinsgrove Speedway will present the 2nd Annual Kramer Cup for 360 sprint cars sanctioned by the United Racing Club at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 1. The 25-lap tribute race to honor the memory of the late sprint car champion will pay $2,573 to win and $200 to start. Joining the sprint cars on the racing program will be the super late models and pro stocks. Track gates will open at 5 p.m.

Selinsgrove Ford will hold a race car display on the dealership lot Saturday afternoon prior to the Market Street Race Car Parade through downtown Selinsgrove at 4 p.m.

At the start of the sprint car feature, polesitter Kevin Albert brought out the red flag when his car turned over in turn three. On the restart, original third-place starter Jim Shuster led the first lap of the race. On the second circuit, fifth-place starter Eric Tomecek took command of the field with an outside pass in turn two and never looked back.

Fourth-place starter Eric Parker held down the runner-up position while sixth-place starter Ryan Kissinger worked his way into the third spot. On lap nine, Kissinger drove by Parker for the second position and set his sights on Tomecek. With 10 laps remaining, 10th-place starer Mark Smith advanced to third.

Down to seven laps to race, Kissinger started to reel in Tomecek at the front of the pack. His efforts were aided by a caution flag on lap 19 when Brian Nornhold stopped his car on the track. On the ensuing restart, Tomecek continued to set a torrid pace as Smith began to challenge Kissinger for the runner-up position.

On the final lap, Smith pulled a slider on Kissinger in turn four to take the second position while Tomecek streaked under the checkered flag to take the win by 2.7 seconds. Kissinger settled for third, while TJ Stutts and Colby Womer rounded out the top five.

Polesitter Danny Snyder pulled into the early lead at the start of the late model feature. Snyder was chased by fourth-place starter Donnie Schick. On a lap two restart, fifth-place starter Tony Adams moved into third while 10th-place starter Steve Campbell advanced to fourth. Two laps later Adams drove by Schick for the second spot.

On the eighth circuit, Campbell made the winning pass using the inside lane in turn four. Jeff Rine, who started 12th, followed Campbell into the runner-up position as Adams raced third. In the final laps of the race, Campbell began to stretch his lead over Rine and 11th-place starter Matt Cochran, who took over third on a lap 19 restart.

At the finish, Campbell was victorious by 2.3 seconds over Rine, Cochran, Adams, and second-place starter Hayes Mattern.

In the Pro Stock 20, polesitter AJ Stroup drove into the lead at the drop of the green flag. Stroup was closely chased by second-place starter Nathan Long, fifth-place starter Brad Mitch, and fourth-place starter Andrew Shoop.

By lap six, the top four runners broke away from the field in a close bumper-to-bumper duel for the race lead. Seventh-place starter Dave Brouse Jr. made it a five-car breakaway by the midway point of the race. On lap 11, however, Brouse was caught up in a tangle with Adam Campbell.

When the race resumed, Stroup set the pace in front of Long, Mitch, and Shoop. On the 15th circuit, Long briefly pulled in front of Stroup in turn three only to lose the lead when his car drifted high racing out of turn four. Then, with two laps remaining, Shoop’s chances of a victory went away after getting caught up in a multi-car melee.

Back under the green flag, Long and Mitch raced for the second position, which allowed Stroup to stretch his lead by the slimmest of margins. On the final lap, contact caused Long to brush the frontstretch guardrail and go into a wild spin. Stroup crossed the finish line and posted a one-second margin of victory over Mitch, Jake Buck, Brouse, and Brandon Moser. Long nursed his car across the finish line in the sixth position.

In the roadrunner feature, Snook started in the third position and led flag to flag for the victory. He held off fifth-place starter Bob Bussey for most of the race until sixth-place starter John Fowler Jr. made a late-race charge into the second spot to put in a bid for the lead and win. At the checkered flag, Snook was victorious by just .47 of a second over Fowler, Bussey, Keith Bissinger, and Brandon Shultz.

STEVIE SMITH DRIVES BLACK BANDIT NO. 19 TO $25,000 WIN IN WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY SUMMER NATIONALS

By TODD HEINTZELMAN

MECHANICSBURG, PA – The Black Bandit rode again Saturday night at Williams Grove Speedway.

Driving a sprinter with a retro No. 19 paint scheme, Stevie Smith took the lead from Aaron Ott on lap eight and survived two late-race restarts to score the $20,000 win in the World of Outlaws-sanctioned Summer Nationals. Smith’s win also earned him the Morgan Cup and a $5,000 bonus.

“This feels great,” said Smith. “It’s hard to win these Outlaw races. I know we won one last year, but until then it was a difficult task for me to accomplish. I know it gets old, but I’ve got to thank these guys for giving me a really, really good racecar. I’m glad it’s getting old that I can say that. I’m very proud of them. Things went our way tonight and it’s a great feeling to win a World of Outlaws show.”

Smith, of Broken Arrow, Okla., drives for retired Hall of Fame driver Fred Rahmer and Massachusetts businessman Dave Pritchard. His car was painted like his father’s No. 19 was painted years ago.

“I was feeling a little better tonight,” said Smith. “I wasn’t really passing the lapped cars, but that’s getting common these days. When I got to them, I could get by them pretty easily. Last week, we had a more difficult time, but the track was different. We got up to Lance there and he was running a good pace. I thought ‘keep your line and keep the most speed you can keep up and you have a good chance at winning this thing, don’t mess up now, you’re almost to the end.’”

“It feels really good,” said Rahmer. “He did a hell of a job. When you’re at a World of Outlaws race, there’s a lot of great teams and drivers, but I think I’ve got one of the best.”

Second starter Joey Saldana pitted before the feature even lined up. A push truck ran over his left rear tire and Saldana pitted to change it. Since the flat was caused by the truck, he was allowed to retain his starting spot.

Polesitter Sammy Swindell was put back one row for getting on the gas too early on the initial start. This moved Aaron Ott to the pole and he grabbed the lead.

Smith, who started fourth, and Saldana were side-by-side down the frontstretch with Smith securing the runner-up spot with one lap down.

Ott began to pass slower cars on the sixth lap and Smith closed. A slider through the third and fourth turns got Smith the lead as they completed lap eight.

Swindell tried a slider on Saldana and they were close racing off turn two. Swindell would get the spot a few laps later on the backstretch.

Outlaw point leader Donny Schatz started fifth, but fell back early in the event. He made a late run toward the front and a pass of Saldana got him to fourth on lap 18.

Smith held a comfortable lead over Ott as Schatz closed on third place.

Schatz got by Swindell on the frontstretch for third as they completed lap 27. The yellow flag flew for Brock Zearfoss, setting up a single-file restart with three to go. Smith’s lead was 1.624 seconds before the yellow.

One more lap was completed before Jacob Allen flipped over the fourth turn fence bringing out the red flag. He was okay.

Schatz had been challenging Ott for second before the red. Smith led them down the front stretch for the restart with two laps left.

He got a good restart as Schatz got under Ott for second in the second turn. Schatz had a slight bobble on the cushion coming off turn four for the white flag. This gave Smith a clean run to the checkered flag as he’d win by 1.131 seconds. Schatz settled for his seventh runner-up finish in the last 13 races. Ott, Swindell and Saldana completed the top five.

“Running second is hard to swallow especially as many times as we’ve done it here lately,” said Schatz. “That’s racing and it works that way. When you’re good enough to win a race, you win a race and we weren’t good enough. We’ll work on it and try to get ourselves better.”

Brian Montieth, Brent Marks, Lucas Wolfe, Greg Hodnett and Paul McMahan rounded out the top 10.

Swindell set fast time in the first flight of time trials with a lap of 16.742. Smith, Paul McMahan, Kerry Madsen and Pat Cannon were the top five in the first flight including 19 cars.

Saldana set fast time in the second flight with a lap of 16.831. Ott, Hodnett, Montieth and Schatz were the top five in the second flight including 20 cars.

Swindell earned the Fast Tees Fast Time Award worth $300 for being the overall fast timer.

The eight-lap heat races were won by Zearfoss, Wolfe, Schatz and Marks.

Swindell won the six-lap dash over Saldana, Ott and Smith, who nipped Schatz at the line for the spot.

J.J. Grasso won the first B-main over Kyle Reinhardt. Jacob Allen won the second over Doug Esh.

NAPA AUTO PARTS THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES

THUNDER ON HILL 410 SPRINTS & 358 MODIFIEDS SET FOR TUESDAY NIGHT AT GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY

BECHTELSVILLE, Pa. (July 25, 2015) -- As the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series gears up for one of its biggest events of the season – the Inaugural 410 Sprint Car Thunder Cup at the Grandview Speedway on Tuesday, July 28 (Rain date: July 30) -- the fastest drivers on dirt prepare to do battle on the 1/3 mile dirt high banks, but for Sprint Car hot shoe Ryan Smith of Kunkletown, PA, the excitement of strapping into his Sprint Car in front of a hometown crowd is the real thrill.

“There is nothing like racing in front of your friends and family,” Smith said. “So many of the people in the stands have watched me race for years, and I’m really looking forward to getting back to Grandview and putting on a good show for them.”

Aboard the Warko Group No. 94, the 27-year-old wheelman has spent much of this season running with Tony Stewart’s “All-Star Circuit of Champions” Sprint Car Series -- which travels primarily throughout Ohio and Western Pennsylvania – where he currently sits 8th in the series point standings, with two wins and eight top-5 finishes. The All-Stars have offered Smith not only a valuable learning experience, but also the opportunity to compete at race tracks that are new to him, both of which have helped him prepare for this Tuesday night at Grandview Speedway.

“The racing at Grandview is so tight and we get so much speed in [410 Sprint] cars, it really is like racing a fighter jet down a hallway,” said Smith.

Smith has his sights set on this Tuesday’s $5,000 top prize and the nearly 20-inch tall gold Thunder Cup Trophy, but a talented contingent of the region’s top Sprint Car aces all have the same goal in mind. Drivers like Greg Hodnett, Lucas Wolfe, Lance Dewease, Alan Krimes, Billy Dietrich, and Freddie and Brandon Rahmer are all gunning for Thunder on the Hill victories.

Things also continue to heat up for the 358 NASCAR Modifieds. During the “Traffic Jam” event, Oley, PA’s Duane Howard claimed the victory in dominant fashion with Jeff Strunk, Meme Desantis, Jared Umbenhauer, and Doug Manmiller rounding out the top five finishers. It’s a battle for bragging rights and $3,000 when the mighty Modifieds take to the track in 30 laps of three-wide, wheel-banging, and boiler plate bouncing action. The 358 Modifieds portion of this show is open to all competitors, with heat race qualifying, a consolation, and a 30-lap feature.

Thunder on the Hill marketing partners have upped the ante for the Inaugural Thunder Cup event, offering competitor bonuses in both the 410 Sprint Car and 358 Modified divisions.

Quaker Steak & Lube is offering a $50 bonus to heat race event winners in both divisions, with the stipulation that they pre-register.

In the 410 Sprint Car division, a $100 Quick Time Bonus is up for grabs with an additional $100 bonus if the track record is broken, $200 is available to a first time Grandview 410 winner, $200 is offered to the highest finishing 360/358/305 Sprint Car, and $125 is offered to all pre-entered cars that don’t qualify for the A-main.

More than $40,000 in cash prizes is on the line for competitors. In a 35-lap event, the 410 Sprints will chase a lucrative $5,000 to win, $1,000 for tenth position, and $400 to start the event. The 358 Modifieds will compete in a 30-lap event for a $3,000 top prize, with tenth paying $500 and $300 to start the event.

SNEERINGER CLAIMS 4TH 358 WIN OF YEAR AT TRAIL-WAY

HANOVER, PA (7/24/2015) – After putting his motor back in the car just last night, points leader Isaac Sneeringer claimed his 4th Trail-Way win of the year in the 25-lap 358 Sprint Car feature on Friday night. Sneeringer said the car was still running hot, but it didn’t seem to affect his ability to maintain the top spot.

Sneeringer started 3rd but followed polesitter Doug Hammaker for 17 laps before diving to the inside to lead exiting turn four. “[Hammaker] was fast,” explained Sneeringer after exiting his DCI Racing #19Z, “but he left me a little bit and I snuck in the bottom.”

“It feels good to get four wins, said Sneeringer, “last year we got three and couldn’t get passed that.”

Hammaker settled for second 1.47 seconds behind Sneeringer with Cody Fletcher, Hard Charger Brad McClelland, and Dwight Leppo completing the top five.

While McClelland was battling for the fourth spot, he scrapped the outside wall entering turn four, but held on to pass Leppo going down the backstretch.

Heats for the 11 358 Sprints were won by Leppo and Sneeringer.

Bill Diehl picked up his 2nd win in a row in the 20 lap Red Lion Chevrolet Central Pa Legends Car feature.

Diehl became the fourth different leader of the event, passing Travis McCelland to lead lap 17. “That was a great race with McCelland,” said Diehl in victory lane, “I got a run off turn four and got underneath of him.”

But that lap 17 pass didn’t come easily, Diehl pressured McClelland since taking the second spot on lap 6. It was a side-by-side battle with lapped traffic bunching the top contenders that finally gave Diehl the chance he needed to win.

Two laps after Diehl took the lead, the caution flew for McCelland who slowed and collected Chad Earnst (who was running 3rd). McCelland took his machine to the pit area, but Earnst rejoined the tail end of the field.

Justin Mitchell crossed the line second with Bob Stough making a late race bid for third, 9th-starting Chris Transeau taking fourth, and Keith Haring finishing 5th.

Heats for the 20 Red Lion Chevrolet Central Pa Legends were won by Mason Chaney and McCelland.

Neal Reamer lead all 20-laps in the Classic Car feature to claim his 3rd Trail-Way win. Reamer was challenged throughout the race by 5th-starting Jim Crocker. Crocker made repeated attempts to pass Reamer on the inside, but after contact with a lapped car on the back stretch, Crocker settled for second.

Third through fifth were 12th-starting Joe Brown, 13th-starting Kurt Welsh, and Charlie Summers.

Heats for the 13 Classic Cars on hand were won by Reamer and Joe Brown.

Jason Chronister dominated the 15-lap Limited Stocks feature enroute to his first win of the season.

Chronister started outside the front row and lead every lap with Jeff Foster close behind. Foster and Chronister were bumper to bumper during the majority of the race, but Foster was never able to make a pass for the lead.

Chronister claimed with win by 2.94 seconds over Foster. Twelfth-starting Matt Chronister crossed in a close third with Shannon Weaver and Cody Klinedenst rounding out the top five.

Heat winners for the 18 Limited Stocks were Foster and Robert Nicklow.

Trail-Way is back in action next Friday July 31st, hosting the 358 Sprints, Street Stocks, 600 Micro Sprints and the Mason-Dixon 270 Micro Sprints in the “Gary Keifert Memorial Twin 15’s.” Gates open at 5:30 p.m., with heats beginning at 7:45 p.m.

DANNY DIETRICH PASSES DONNY SCHATZ TO WIN WILLIAMS GROVE FRIDAY NIGHT SUMMER NATIONALS FEATURE

By: Todd Heintzelman

MECHANICSBURG, PA – Add Danny Dietrich’s name to the short list of drivers that have passed Donny Schatz to score a World of Outlaws sprint car win this season.

Dietrich, of Gettysburg, Pa., did just that Friday night as he drove by the Outlaws point leader and 20-time winner off turn four to complete lap 18 and would keep him behind on a green-white-checkered finish.

Dietrich earned $8,000 for his first career Williams Grove Outlaw win in a car owned by Gary Kauffman. He does have two Outlaw wins at Lincoln Speedway.

Joey Saldana started second and grabbed the lead from pole-sitter Schatz on the initial start, but it was called back when Kerry Madsen spun in turn one.

Saldana would once again get the lead from Schatz with Paul McMahan in third. Greg Hodnett and Lucas Wolfe raced hard for fourth with Hodnett getting the spot in turn one.

As Saldana approached lapped traffic with six laps completed, the yellow flag flew when Daryn Pittman stopped at the end of the frontstretch.

Saldana picked the inside line for the double-file restart. They were close off turn four, but Saldana had just enough room to slide up in front of Schatz and lead into turn one.

The racing between Hodnett and McMahan was close off turn two, resulting in Hodnett flipping several times and bringing out the red flag.

A single-file restart followed the crash and the yellow flag flew when Troy Fraker stopped on the backstretch.

Schatz tried to grab the lead on the next restart, but Saldana’s momentum off the cushion kept him out front. Dietrich, who started ninth, passed Sammy Swindell to take fifth.

Brock Zearfoss did a 360-spin in turn three, but the yellow flag flew with eight completed.

Schatz would easily take the lead from Saldana off turn four on the ensuing restart. Dietrich made a three-car pass in turns one and two to move into third and then blasted by Saldana in turn three to move into second.

“I had a heck of a restart,” said Dietrich. “I passed three cars in one and two and I thought for sure the caution would come out, but it didn’t. That was the difference maker. I knew I had to pounce on Joey and slide him down there.”

With 11 laps completed, Schatz was working the cushion and Dietrich was working down low and gaining on the leader.

Schatz slammed the door on Dietrich entering turn three. Both cars drifted across the track and over the cushion. They regained control off turn four and Dietrich squeezed by Schatz on the frontstretch to complete lap 18 as the leader.

“It was real hard racing with Donny,” said Dietrich. “It was clean racing, but we raced each other tough. That’s what you do when you race with the best in the world. I was worried I showed him my nose a little too soon down in three and four and he moved down. I don’t remember the pass. I think we passed each other a couple of times. We were lucky enough to beat him tonight.”

Dietrich pulled away from Schatz in traffic over the next six laps and was headed for victory.

But, as he raced off the fourth turn, he didn’t see the checkered flag, but instead, the yellow, as Brent Marks had crashed on the frontstretch.

A green-white-checkered finish was ahead.

Dietrich went back to the bottom and Schatz blasted the top and stayed with the leader. They were close under the white flag and into the first turn. Schatz pushed a little off turn two and that was the difference as Dietrich would get the win by 0.289 seconds over Schatz and Swindell. McMahan and Saldana completed the top five. Wolfe, Stevie Smith, Shane Stewart, Lance Dewease and Aaron Ott rounded out the top 10.

“He was better than we were on the bottom and in the middle,” said Schatz. “The only prayer I had was to try and make the top work at the end. I ran it as hard as I could. He was a little better and did a good job.”

Hodnett set fast time in the first flight of time trials with a lap of 16.789. Wolfe set fast time in the second flight with a lap of 16.935. Hodnett earned the Fast Tees Fast Time Award worth $300 for being fastest overall.

Dewease, Swindell, Schatz and Pittman won the eight-lap heat races. Schatz won the six-lap dash. Jim Siegel and King’s Royal winner Stewart won the twin B-mains.

The Summer Nationals concludes Saturday night with $20,000 going to the winner of the 30-lap main event, plus a $5,000 bonus left over from the rained out Morgan Cup in May.

Sprint Car Feature (25 laps): 1. Danny Dietrich. 2. Donny Schatz. 3. Sammy Swindell. 4. Paul McMahan. 5. Joey Saldana. 6. Lucas Wolfe. 7. Stevie Smith. 8. Shane Stewart. 9. Lance Dewease. 10.

Champion Racing Oil Named Title Sponsor of the Three-Day Williams Grove National Open

World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series championship run will go through storied Pennsylvania track Oct. 1-2-3

(Clinton, MO / 07.24.15) Champion, a recognized leader in racing and performance lubricants, will be the title sponsor of the Williams Grove National Open sanctioned by the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series on October 1-2-3 in Mechanicsburg, Pa.

The Champion Racing Oil National Open is an event with more than 50 years of history that includes the biggest names in motorsports competing at half-mile Williams Grove Speedway, one of dirt racing’s legendary venues.

“Champion Racing Oil is proud to support Williams Grove Speedway and be the title sponsor of this year’s National Open,” stated Karl Dedolph, Director of Racing and Performance Products for Champion Oil. “It’s great to support our past and future winners at “The Grove” using Champion ‘Purpose Built’ lubricant technology that is formulated for ultimate protection and competitive performance.”

The World of Outlaws, an international racing tour with superstar drivers, features incredibly powerful and fast 410ci winged sprint cars. The Champion Racing Oil National Open is a key part of the series’ 2015 championship that includes 92 race nights at 52 different tracks across 24 states and three Canadian provinces.

A World of Outlaws sprint car is an open-wheel racecar that weighs at least 1,400 pounds, including the driver. The 410-cubic inch engine is fueled by methanol. The cars produce approximately 850 horsepower and have a large top wing with sideboards that face in the opposite direction and create a great amount of down force to plant the car on the track and help the car turn with maximum grip, in both the corners and on the straightaways. The cars also have smaller nose wings.

Williams Grove Speedway is a half-mile automobile racetrack located in Mechanicsburg, Pa., about 10 miles south of the state capital of Harrisburg. It opened in 1939 and has been host to many championship races. Williams Grove continues a tradition of racing every Friday, and almost every Saturday, including many special events. The most prestigious of these special events is the Champion Racing Oil National Open.

Champion Racing Oils are built specifically to meet the lubrication demands of race car engines, especially those using flat tappet and roller cams operating at high RPMs and that require high-pressure valve springs. To meet these demands, Champion utilizes its premium ZDDP anti-wear protection package, which contains a unique balance of chemistry that includes high levels of zinc and phosphorus. In addition, all Champion Racing motor oils contain our exclusive TVS® (Thermal Viscosity Stabilizer) technology. This proprietary technology delivers unmatched film strength at high temperature, better piston ring seal for maximum compression, and increases the foot-pounds of torque in most engines.

About the company: Champion Brands, LLC, is a globally recognized industry leader in specialty lubricants for over 59 years. Champion Brands, LLC also produces and blends over 350 products including fuel, oil, engine additives, and lubricants for the racing, automotive, heavy truck, agricultural, industrial, and specialty markets.

“The Black Bandit” Rides Again in Preparation for Legends of Central Pennsylvania Event

Sprint Car Ace Steve Smith Sr. Rides Again on Wednesday, August 26 at Lincoln Speedway

Abbottstown, PA (July 20, 2015) -- Heads will turn when the legendary machine steered by Broken Arrow, Oklahoma’s Stevie Smith rolls out of the race hauler this coming Friday Night during Williams Grove Speedway’s World of Outlaws Summer Nationals. The Fred Rahmer-owned ride will adorn a retro-styled “Black Bandit” No. 19 paint scheme in the events leading up to Wednesday, August 26 (raindate: August 27) and the Apple Chevrolet “Legends of Central Pennsylvania” event at the Lincoln Speedway.

“We are bringing back the ‘Black Bandit;’ seeing it in the garage makes me feel like I’m in a time warp.” said Rahmer. “It’s a great way for us to honor Stevie and his dad and it gets us excited for the ‘Legends’ race.”

While Stevie Smith will pilot the car this weekend, it will be Steve Smith Sr. behind the wheel at the “Legends” event. The patriarch of the Smith racing family, Steve Sr. holds more than 200 victories at Central Pennsylvania racetracks, including 150 at the Lincoln Speedway – but winning won’t be an easy task, as drivers like Doug Wolfgang, Steve Stambaugh, Lynn Paxton, Keith Kauffman, Cris Eash, Kenny Adams, Billy Pauch, Todd Shaffer, Steve Siegel and Bobby Weaver have their sights set on victory.

Fred Rahmer Promotions and Apple Chevrolet of York, PA are presenting the “Legends of Central Pennsylvania” event, on Wednesday, August 26 (Raindate: August 27) as a tribute to this region’s colorful Sprint Car history. Driving greats from the ‘60s, ‘70s, ‘80s and ‘90s will compete in 410 Sprint Cars one more time, with heat races and a special 20 lap feature. Also on the card is an invitation only $10,000 winner-takes-all Shootout— featuring six of the nation’s top Sprint Car stars—as well as full program of 358 Sprint Cars.

Much like Smith and “The Black Bandit,” all of the legends will compete in modern day cars with graphics similar to the machines they made famous.

“The Black Bandit” No. 19 sees action this coming weekend for the World of Outlaws Summer Nationals at the Williams Grove Speedway, and will head west for the Knoxville Nationals before Steve Smith Sr. takes the wheel on August 26.

Race team sponsors include: Miller Brothers Chevrolet, Wege Pretzels of Hanover, Aran Trading, Pioneer Pole Buildings, Ken’s Tire, Specialty Rigging, Spectra Oil

Fans are encouraged to participate by writing-in their nominations of Shootout participants through a special section on FredRahmerPromotions.com. Write-in voting will start on Sunday, July 26.

Rounding out the event will be a complete show for the popular 358 Sprint Cars.

The action takes place on Wednesday, August 26 (raindate: August 27). General Admission Adult tickets are $20, Students 12-17 are $15, and Children 11 years old and under are FREE!

Dietrich Three-for-Three at SSP on Sunday Night Sprint Car Special

Next Test & Tune on Wednesday, July 22

Newberrytown, PA (July 19, 2015) – Danny Dietrich of Gettysburg has gone three-for-three this season by taking the 410 Sprint Car victory in the Sunday Night Sprint Car Special present by Shetron Auction Services and Newville Construction at the Susquehanna Speedway Park. Mark Smith from Sunbury collected the URC 360/358 Sprint Car 25-lap Challenge Race. The EMMR Vintage Cars also participated in exhibition hot laps before the features began.

By virtue of a six spot inversion, Hunter Mackison and Brian Montieth brought the field to the green in the 410 Sprint Car 25-lap feature event. Montieth grabbed the early lead over Hunter Mackison. With 10 laps to go, Danny Dietrich got by Mackison for second and set his sights on the leader. As Montieth navigated lapped traffic, Dietrich slowly began eating away at the straightaway lead that Montieth had built up. With two laps to go, Dietrich began challenging for the lead and on the final circuit made the pass for the win to collect his third SSP victory of the season in as many races. Montieth settled for second, followed by a career best third place finish for Chase Dietz. Tyler Ross finished fourth with Hunter Mackison coming across the line in fifth. Heat race wins went to Smith and Dietz.

In the URC 360/358 Sprint Car Challenge Race, polesitter Mark Smith took the lead from the pole position of the 25 lapper and began to set a blistering pace. The only thing that slowed Smith down was a caution for a spinning car in turn 4 on lap 19. This allowed 2nd place running Robbie Stillwagon to wipe out the huge lead and start on Smith’s rear bumper on the restart. When the race went back to green, Smith once again set the pace and went on to take the victory over Stillwagon at the end. Curt Michael came across the line in third, followed by Josh Weller in fourth. Davie Franek rounded out the top five. Michael and Weller were the heat race winners.

DIETRICH STORMS FROM 12TH TO WIN 28TH AND FINAL GOHN MEMORIAL;

ROHRBAUGH JOINS HAAS AT THE TOP OF THE ALL-TIME LINCOLN 358 SPRINT WIN LIST;

Chad Glatfelter holds off McClelland and Stough for Central PA Legends win

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 7/18/2015 – Another big race, another big win for Danny Dietrich at Lincoln Speedway.

Dietrich came from 12th starting spot, nursed an injured motor over the final 16 laps, and claimed the $5,040 top prize in the 28th Annual and final DARYL GOHN/GLENN GOHN, SR. MEMORIAL for 410 sprint cars in the Pigeon Hills Saturday night. The extra money was put up by friends, family members, and sponsors.

“I hurt a motor there with nine laps to go trying to pass (Tim) Glatfelter going into three,” said Dietrich, who shut it down as soon as he took the checkered flag and went to the infield for some assistance, “As soon as I turned the corner (on the ninth lap) it started going south. We’re just lucky to be standing here”

Polesitter Brandon Rahmer led the first 20 laps and had an impressive two-second lead in lapped traffic over outside front row starter Tim Glatfelter as late as lap 17. On lap 18, Dietrich caught Robbie Kendall for third, and then took second from Glatfelter following caution restart on lap 20.

Dietrich continued his surge, taking the lead from Rahmer in turns thee and four of lap 21. It was the debris caution on the last restart with two to go that led to Dietrich’s concern.

“I was worried about it taking off on that last restart,” said Dietrich, “I know daggone well we’ll show up tomorrow and have another motor. We’ve got another one in the shop that’s just as good.”

Despite the engine issue, Dietrich crossed 1.10 seconds ahead of Glatfelter, with Brandon Rahmer settling for third, Kendall fourth, and Austin Hogue fifth. Sixth through tenth were 11th-starting and point leader Brian Montieth, Billy Dietrich, Cory Haas, Jim Siegel, and Tyler Ross.

Heats for the 24 410’s on hand were won by Siegel, Brandon Rahmer, and Kyle Moody.

Two-time track champ Jeff Rohrbaugh moved into a tie with Cory Haas as the all-time winningest 358 sprint drivers after coming from 11th starting spot to score his 13th career Lincoln win in the 25-lap Nouse Signs and Graphics Summer Series feature event.

And he didn’t waste any time, advancing to third by lap the end of lap two.

Third-starting Kyle Denmyer led the first lap before spinning in front of the field and collecting Troy Wagaman, Jr. on turns one and two of lap two, resulting in Denmyer being knocked onto his side.

Both cars were done for the night.

Sixth-starting Cody Fletcher assumed the lead for the lap two restart, and held off Rohrbaugh for the next 14 laps before Rohrbaugh took the lead on lap 15. Rohrbaugh raced away to convincing 7.01 second win over a charging Doug Hammaker, who started 12th and grabbed the runner-up spot from Fletcher with three laps to go.

Fletcher crossed third, with Chandler Leiby and Adrian Shaffer completing the top five.

Heats for the 33 358’s on hand were won by Matt Campbell, Nathan Prezenica, Wagaman, and Leiby, with Brie Hershey winning the consolation.

Chad Glatfelter delivered a 90th birthday present to his grandfather by claiming the 15-lap Central PA Legends feature. Glatfelter started fourth, took the lead from outside front row starter and race-long leader Mason Chaney on lap four, and withstood the constant challenges of both Travis McClelland and Lincoln points leader Bob Stough over the final eight laps.

McClelland and Stough finished second and third, with Chad Earnst and Harlon Leppo rounding out the top five.

Heats for the 26 Central PA Legends on hand were won by Stough, Leppo, and Chad Glatfelter.

Next Saturday night, July 25th, Lincoln Speedway will be dark as the 410 Sprinters will be traveling elsewhere locally for a big weekend show.

Then in two weeks, August 1st, it will be YORK COUNTY RACING CLUB NIGHT on PEPSI NIGHT with a 3-division show of 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints, and Central PA Legends. Gates open at 5:30 PM, racing set to get underway at 7:30 PM.

Hodnett Gets Four In Sprints

Port Royal – Devin Friese of Chambersburg became the third and final leader in Saturday night’s 35-lap UFO super late model main event at Port Royal Speedway to record his first career oval victory, worth $3,000. In the 25-lap 410 sprint car main it was Greg Hodnett inheriting the lead to go on and claim his fourth Port Royal checkers of the season and in the econo late model feature Troy Miller took the win.

Dan Stone and Port Royal point leader Mike Lupfer shared the front row for the start of the UFO feature event and Lupfer took the lead on the first circuit. But Stone, who finished second a week ago, was stout around the top groove and motored by Lupfer for control on the third circuit.

And shortly after he got the lead and completed the lap, UFO point leader Mike Altobelli Jr. stopped on the track, unfurling the yellow flag.

Dylan Yoder had been on the move prior to the yellow, working up to third and challenging for second only to see the yellow force him back to fourth.

On the restart, Trent Brenneman applied considerable pressure to Stone for the lead, racing on his bumper a lane lower for two laps before Stone pulled away.

In the meantime, Yoder found Friese slipping by for third only to force him to re-pass him for the spot, which he did shortly after before running down Brenneman for second on the 17th tour.

Yoder took second and began slicing a half-second a lap off of Stone’s advantage and had him in the same corner when he suddenly lost power with 13 laps to go, handing second to Friese.

Friese pounced when action resumed, drawing to Stone’s inside as the pair rolled into turn one and Friese stuck with Stone deep into turn three and as the pair raced through the fourth corner, Stone slipped up over the cushion and relinquished the top spot.

Friese then pulled away to the finish to win by 2.080 seconds.

Jason Schmidt put together a good run to finish third followed by 11th starter Coleby Frye and Nick Dickson.

Sixth through 10th went to Matt Parks, Brett Schadel, Lupfer, Tim Smith Jr. and Justin Kann.

Heats for the 28-car field went to Yoder, Andy Haus and Frye with Dan Angelicchio taking the consolation race.

Tyler Bear led the first three laps of the sprint car main before Richfield’s Trenton Shaeffer took over.

Shaeffer’s pace was slowed moments later when Bear slowed to a stop, putting Brock Zearfoss into second.

Zearfoss challenged on the restart and chased Shaeffer for the next five laps before motoring by for the lead with nine away.

As Zearfoss passed Shaeffer for the lead, Shaeffer nearly looped the car but salvaged it however the lapse in timing allowed eighth starter Greg Hodnett to drive by.

At that point, Zearfoss began working traffic with Hodnett in tow and there was no room for error by Zearfoss with Hodnett lurking.

Thus Zearfoss went to the inside of Ed Aikin in an effort to put him a lap down in the first turn with 10 laps to go but the move resulted in contact between the pair, knocking Aikin up to the wall and to a stop while giving Zearfoss a right rear flat.

Hodnett inherited the lead by virtue of the circumstances and then had to hold off Lance Dewease on the restart.

Dewease stuck his nose under the new leader when action resumed and tried again in the third turn but once Hodnett got his momentum going he pulled away to the victory, his 40th at the oval.

Dewease rode home 1.134 seconds behind followed by Lucas Wolfe, Dylan Cisney and Shaeffer.

Sixth through 10th went to Logan Wagner, 20th starter Steve Buckwalter, Mike Erdley, Dave Ely and Mike Wagner.

Heats went to Shaeffer, Wolfe and Scott Wilson.

Fourth starter Shaun Miller of Tower City took the econo late model main over Andrew Yoder.

Yoder got by Harold Ranck for second at the halfway point of the 20 lap feature but came up short for the victory.

After starting 11th, Eric Irvin rode home third followed by Dave Leidy and Devin Hart.

Sixth through 10th went to Harold Ranck, Rod Stroup, Jason Nace, Tim Fedder and Jason Davis.

Heats went to Shaun Miller and Dave Leidy.

KEARCHNER SCORES SECOND CAREER WIN IN TRAIL-WAY 358 SPRINTS; TRAVIS MEASE TAKES SECOND OF THE YEAR IN 358 LATE MODELS; TRAVIS SCOTT HOLDS OFF BRAD WEBER IN 600 MICROS; CHRONISTER AGAIN IN LIMITED STOCKS

HANOVER, PA (7/17/2015) – Seth Kearchner was the star of the show in the 358 sprint car feature at Trail-Way Speedway Friday night.

“This feels great!” exclaimed the Fairfield driver after scoring his first win of the year and second Trail-Way career spring car win, “We’ve had an okay season, but this does it!”

Kearchner started on the pole and led every lap, despite heavy late-race pressure from hard charger Brad McClelland, who came from tenth starting spot to close to within .46 seconds of Kearchner at the checkered.

“I saw the ‘6’ car up on the board and intended to keep it that way,” continued Kearchner, “We completely flopped at the Grove last week, and did some serious research this week. We had a really good car tonight.”

McClelland was more than two seconds behind when he caught front-row starter Cody Fletcher for the runner-up spot on lap 21. But for the fourth time in five races, he settled for second to a first-time 2015 winner.

Fletcher crossed third, with Jeff Halligan and Isaac Sneeringer completing the top five.

“In addition to NAPA Auto Parts, DB Communications, and my other sponsors, I want to thank Rachel,” said Kearchner of his bride-to-be, “She’s not just a pretty girl at the track, she’s a pretty girl in the shop, too!”

Qualifiers for the 13 sprint cars were won by Halligan and Sneeringer.

Travis Mease closed to within 16 points of Trail-Way/Lincoln Precise Racing Products points leader Sam Gallagher with his second Trail-Way win of the year in the 358 late model feature, establishing a new 25-lap track record of 6 minutes, 54.75 seconds in the process.

Mease started fourth and wrestled the lead from polesitter Tyler Horst on lap 16. After making the race-winning pass, Mease pulled away from the rest of the field for his second series win in four races run so far this year.

Cam Zeigler won a multi-car battle for second, with Sam Gallagher, Horst, and Brad Shank rounding out the top five.

The lone heat for the nine 358 late models was won by Gallagher.

Travis Scott picked up his first win of the year and fourth of his Trail-Way career in the 20-lap 600cc micro-sprint feature. Scott took the lead from polesitter Kameron Morral on lap six and held off a charging Brad Weber by .54 seconds at the end.

Tyler Walton came from eighth starting spot to cross third, with 12th-starting Jim Young and tenth-starting A.J. Bast completing the top five.

Heats for the 18 micros were won by Young and Colton Baughman.

Matt Chronister came from ninth starting spot to score his fifth win of the year in the 15-lap limited stock feature. His final margin of victory was 1.9 seconds over Cody Klinedinst. Third through fifth were Shane Miller, 12th-starting Kyle Rohrbaugh, and Sarah Redmond.

Qualifiers for the 22 limited stocks were won by Terry Hartlaub, Matt Chronister, and Ricky Weaver, Jr. Weaver blew a motor and dropped to the infield while leading on lap nine of the feature.

Trail-Way swings back into action next Friday July 24th, hosting the 358 Sprints, Central PA Legends, Classic Cars and Limited Stocks. Gates open at 5:30 p.m., with heats beginning at 7:45 p.m.

The following Friday, July 31st, Trail-Way hosts the 358 Sprints, Street Stocks, 600 Micro Sprints and the Mason-Dixon 270 Micro Sprints in the “Gary Keifert Memorial Twin 15’s.” Gates open at 5:30 p.m., with heats beginning at 7:45 p.m.

Smith Is Ready For Grove Outlaws With Tune Up Victory, Kody Lehman Gets 358 First

7/17/15

Mechanicsburg ? Stevie Smith said he is ready for the outlaws Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway after taking the checkers in the sprint car tune-up for next week?s two-day World of Outlaws Summer Nationals invasion.

?We?ll give it our best shot,? said Smith after taking his third oval win of the season aboard his Miller Brother?s Chevrolet No. 51.

In the 358 sprint main, Enola?s Kody Lehman scored his first ever win in the division at the track, holding off a tenacious charge by two-time winner Chase Dietz for the victory.

Second starter Lucas Wolfe took his stab at the lead in the 410 sprint main shortly after action began in the 25-lapper by jabbing his No. 1 underneath Smith for the lead as the pair raced through the third and fourth turns to complete lap number one.

Wolfe?s dive and drive up in front of Smith forced both pilots up over the cushion and into near disaster before Wolfe pulled his car back down to lead the first circuit.

But Smith was hot on his tail as the pair crossed the starting line and as fast as Wolfe took the lead he lost it in the first corner when Smith made a big swoop across the bottom to get control in the second corner.

Brian Montieth started fourth in the field and blasted around Wolfe for second on the fifth tour and gave chase of leader Smith.

He steadily cut into Smith?s advantage and was forcing the issue in traffic when a miscue by Smith sent backmarker Jordan Mackison careening into the second turn wall and flipping wildly after contact with Smith as he attempted to put Mackison a lap down.

Smith continued on after the red flag stoppage but took credit for the crash in victory lane, apologizing for the contact and admitting that the pressure from Montieth was all that he could handle.

With open track Smith got away at the new green and instead Greg Hodnett came on strong to get by Montieth for second with 12 laps to go.

And once into second, Hodnett steadily sliced away at Smith?s advantage and as the leader again entered the backmarkers on the 17th tour, Hodnett was there to take his shot at the win.

But just like the last time Smith was to be challenged, a yellow flag slowed the pace and cleared the track with just three laps to go.

After that Smith was home free but the show would be staged between Hodnett and Montieth to the finish as the pair swapped second on more than one occasion with Hodnett coming out on top in what was a contentious battle.

Lance Dewease swooped under Wolfe for fourth in the final two laps, relegating him to fifth at the finish.

Sixth through 10th went to Alan Krimes, Danny Dietrich, Doug Esh, Brock Zearfoss and Jim Siegel.

The victory was the 32nd of Smith?s career at Williams Grove, placing him in a tie with his father Steve Smith Sr. on the all time win list.

Heats went to Wolfe, Dewease and Siegel with Mark Smith taking the consolation and Smith winning the dash to earn the pole.

Wolfe set quick time over the field with a lap of 16.586 seconds.

Matt Findley led the first seven laps of the 20-lap 358 sprint main before Lehman muscled by on the outside for the win.

Lehman made good time around the top of the speedway and was first poised to take the lead with five laps down when the races first caution flag appeared.

It took him a few more laps after action resumed to get control.

After starting 10th, Kevin Nouse took second from Findley with nine laps to go but failed to close on the leader and he instead found 13th starter Chase Dietz challenging him for second when he suddenly dropped out of the race with three laps to go.

The restart set up an exciting finish as Dietz challenged Lehman, taking the lead briefly twice in the first and second turns only to see Lehman one-up him to reclaim the spot, first with a slingshot off the second corner and secondly with a run down low.

Lehman refused to be denied for the victory, followed by Dietz, Findley, Scott Fisher and Doug Hammaker.

Heats went to Chandler Leiby, Matt Campbell and Nouse.

Champion Racing Oil Named Title Sponsor of the Three-Day Williams Grove National Open

World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series championship run will go through storied Pennsylvania track Oct. 1-2-3

(Clinton, MO / 07.17.15) Champion, a recognized leader in racing and performance lubricants, will be the title sponsor of the Williams Grove National Open sanctioned by the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series on October 1-2-3 in Mechanicsburg, Pa.

The Champion Racing Oil National Open is an event with more than 50 years of history that includes the biggest names in motorsports competing at half-mile Williams Grove Speedway, one of dirt racing’s legendary venues.

“Champion Racing Oil is proud to support Williams Grove Speedway and be the title sponsor of this year’s National Open,” stated Karl Dedolph, Director of Racing and Performance Products for Champion Oil. “It’s great to support our past and future winners at “The Grove” using Champion ‘Purpose Built’ lubricant technology that is formulated for ultimate protection and competitive performance.”

The World of Outlaws, an international racing tour with superstar drivers, features incredibly powerful and fast 410ci winged sprint cars. The Champion Racing Oil National Open is a key part of the series’ 2015 championship that includes 92 race nights at 52 different tracks across 24 states and three Canadian provinces.

A World of Outlaws sprint car is an open-wheel racecar that weighs at least 1,400 pounds, including the driver. The 410-cubic inch engine is fueled by methanol. The cars produce approximately 850 horsepower and have a large top wing with sideboards that face in the opposite direction and create a great amount of down force to plant the car on the track and help the car turn with maximum grip, in both the corners and on the straightaways. The cars also have smaller nose wings.

Williams Grove Speedway is a half-mile automobile racetrack located in Mechanicsburg, Pa., about 10 miles south of the state capital of Harrisburg. It opened in 1939 and has been host to many championship races. Williams Grove continues a tradition of racing every Friday, and almost every Saturday, including many special events. The most prestigious of these special events is the Champion Racing Oil National Open.

Champion Racing Oils are built specifically to meet the lubrication demands of race car engines, especially those using flat tappet and roller cams operating at high RPMs and that require high-pressure valve springs. To meet these demands, Champion utilizes its premium ZDDP anti-wear protection package, which contains a unique balance of chemistry that includes high levels of zinc and phosphorus. In addition, all Champion Racing motor oils contain our exclusive TVS® (Thermal Viscosity Stabilizer) technology. This proprietary technology delivers unmatched film strength at high temperature, better piston ring seal for maximum compression, and increases the foot-pounds of torque in most engines.

About the company: Champion Brands, LLC, is a globally recognized industry leader in specialty lubricants for over 59 years. Champion Brands, LLC also produces and blends over 350 products including fuel, oil, engine additives, and lubricants for the racing, automotive, heavy truck, agricultural, industrial, and specialty markets.

Frankie Herr, Ron Kline and Chris Heller Win Williams Grove Speedway Saturday Night Series Races

Mechanicsburg, PA. July 12, 2015

Battling a tricky racing surface and experimenting with a new wing set up, Frankie Herr found the right combination in the final moments of the Williams Grove Speedway Blazer’s Body Shop 20-lap Super Sportsman feature. Making his winning pass with two laps remaining, Herr won his first Williams Grove Speedway feature of 2015.

Devon Beidel started outside of the Super Sportsman front row and led the start. Justin Foster, Steve Fannasy, Chad Trout, and Tony Jackson were in pursuit of the leader. By lap five the competition for the lead became a three-car fight between Beidel, Foster and Fannasy.

There was a shuffling of the field behind Beidel during lap eight when Justin Foster slid up the track. Steve Fannasy advanced into second with Tony Jackson, Russ Mitten and Chad Trout trailing. The event’s first caution occurred during the 11th circuit. Cautions returned in the next two laps.

Frankie Herr, from Carlisle, began the race in 11th position. Herr stuck on the lap 14 restart; his No. 99 thundering into fourth position.

Devin Beidel continued to hold a two-length lead. Tony Jackson swung by Steve Fannasy for second with Frankie Herr charging into third. Herr struck during the 18th lap when he used the outside lane to sweep by Jackson and Beidel.

Frankie Herr, using a new style of Super Sportsman wing, crossed the finish line 10-lengths ahead of Tony Jackson. Devon Beidel was third with Steve Fannasy in fourth and Scott Dellinger in fifth.

Earlier in the evening, Scott Geesey’s Super Sportsman took a series of violent flips entering turn three. Geesey was transported to the hospital for treatment of a broken arm.

Preliminary events for the 29 entries went to Trout, Chad Criswell and Jackson. Mike Enders received the Sprint Aces Hard Charger award.

Ron Kline started second in the 25-lap Credit Connection Auto Sales 358 Late Model feature. This race was part of the Bernheisel Race Components Superior Products Night with BRC distributing $7,000 worth of products to the 358 Late Model competitors.

Kline continued to pace the field with Alan Sagi, Sam Rial, Travis Mease and Gene Knaub following. Knaub advanced to third by lap four.

Sagi and Knaub applied heavy pressure on Kline due to six caution flags from laps seven through 13. After the flurry of yellow flags Kline held a five-length edge as Sagi and Knaub fought for second.

The race came to a stop on lap 20 when Chase Billet crashed heavily into the backstretch fence. Billet started 13th and was in the top five at the time of his wreck.

After the restart Alan Sagi and Gene Knaub continued their fight for second allowing Ron Kline to widen his lead. During the 17th circuit Sagi and Knaub made contact on the frontstretch with Sagi’s car sliding along the fencing. Gene Knaub made the pass but in turn two slowed and Sagi regained the position.

Ron Kline, from Salfordsville, won his first of the year by 2.5 seconds over Alan Sagi. Gene Knaub was third with Billy Wampler in fourth and Sam Rial was fifth.

Heat wins for the 23 entries went to Wes Alleman, Kline and Cam Zeigler. Shaun Jones won the Artwerks Hard Charger award.

Chris Heller started second and was the immediate leader in the 15-lap Aquafun Pools Street Stock feature. Sean Dawson, Steven Dove, Eric Tripp, and Ryan Smith were lurking behind the leader.

Sean Dawson went to work on the outside lane and by lap seven he was even with leader Chris Heller. One circuit later Dawson became the new leader with a turn-three pass.

Dawson’s lead was just one lap when a flat right rear tire brought the Virginia driver to a stop. Chris Heller was back in front with Steven Dove and Jasen Geesaman applying strong pressure.

Caution returned with two laps remaining. Geesaman used the restart to pass Dove. On the final lap Jasen Geesaman dove under Chris Heller entering turn one. Heller held a slight lead off turn two. In the final turns Geesaman tried the bottom lane but Heller had momentum off the turn. Chris Heller, from Carlisle, won his first of 2015 by a length over Jasen Geesaman. Steven Dove was third with Greg Diehl in fourth and Kory Sites was fifth.

Jeff Haag, Craig Morgan and Sites won heat races for the 28-car field with Jim Palm the consolation victor. Geesaman received the Artwerks Hard Charger award.

Next Saturday night Williams Grove Speedway presents Kids Night. This is the biggest event of the year for the Saturday Night Series. Kids Night is racing and a carnival combined providing evening-long entertainment for children of all ages. Prior to the races the SNS race teams will have their cars in the infield allowing children and their parents and see the cars and meet the drivers.

SIEGEL SCORES FIRST WIN OF YEAR IN LINCOLN BRANDON LITTLE MEMORIAL;

FRANEK CLAIMS FIRST CAREER LINCOLN WIN IN 358’S; OTT TAKES MACH 1 360/358 CHALLENGE

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 7/11/2015 – Jim Siegel capitalized on a week of hard work and possibly a little help from upstairs in scoring his first win of the year in the Fallen Firefighters Night feature event at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

The 33-lap race was run in memory of firefighter Brandon Little, who was killed in a traffic crash while responding to a fire call in January of 2012, and in recognition of United Hook and Ladder Station 33, which serves Abbottstown and New Oxford.

As a young race fan, Brandon’s favorite driver was Jim Siegel.

“It’s special for me to be able to stand here on a night when we celebrate Brandon’s life,” said Siegel after scoring his 12th career Lincoln win and claiming the $5,000 top prize, “All I can say is that kids like him give their time and efforts. It matters a lot what those people do for us. I think it’s real special that they volunteer and help us out, because when you need them, they’re there for you.”

“I’ve been working my (butt) off all week,” continued Siegel, “So have my guys and my dad. We got that car tore up during the Monday Speedweek show here, and couldn’t make it back for Thursday. It’s been a long year. And it was an even longer week. It sure feels good to get the monkey off my back.”

Normal handicapping and a redraw with the first six spots and second group of six cars put Siegel on the inside of row two for the start. Outside front row starter Kyle Moody grabbed the lead from polesitter Glenndon Forsythe at the outset, with Siegel falling in line behind them.

The race’s lone caution flag came out for Scott Fisher on lap four. Siegel passed Forsythe for second two laps later, and closed quickly on Moody in lapped traffic over the next six lap. Siegel was actually scored the leader at the line completing lap 15, but Moody was able to retake the lead on the following lap.

Meanwhile, seventh-starting Danny Dietrich had worked his way into third place during that exchange.

Siegel was able to put on his race-winning move on lap 20. Four laps later, Dietrich got by Moody to take second. For the next ten laps, the Sandoe’s Fruit Market #48 tried to track down Siegel. He got close with five laps to go, but got hung up behind lapped cars, allowing Siegel to pull away to the .62-second win.

Moody settled for third, with Alan Krimes and Greg Hodnett completing the top five. Sixth through tenth were Austin Hogue, Forsythe, 20th-starting Brian Montieth, Chase Dietz, and Tim Wagaman.

Heats for the 34 410’s on hand were won by Moody, Cory Haas, Wagaman, and Lance Dewease, with Freddie Rahmer winning the consolation.

Sussex, New Jersey’s Davie Franek came from 11th starting spot to score his first career Lincoln win in the 20-lap “358” sprint car feature. Franek methodically worked his way through the field during through a red flag and four caution flags during the first nine laps of the race to restart third after the ninth-lap caution.

Driving the Roger McKeehan #4R, Franek caught Lucas Montgomery for the runner-up spot at the half-way point, and made his race-winning pass by polesitter and race-long leader Wyatt Hinkle three laps later. From there, he pulled away to a convincing 5.37-second win.

Hinkle crossed second, followed by Montgomery, Tyler Esh, and 12th-starting Jeff Halligan.

Rounding out the top ten were Brie Hershey, 22nd-starting Cole Young, Matt Campbell, 24th-starting Todd Rittenhouse, Jr., and 23rd-startng Jordan Givler.

Heats for the 40 358’s on hand were won by Troy Wagaman, Jr., Esh, Scott Fisher, and Hershey, with Chandler Leiby winning the consolation.

Aaron Ott ended a Lincoln win drought by winning the make-up 25-lap Mach 1 360/358 Challenge from 2014.

Front row starters Josh Weller and Jimmy Stitzel battled for the lead in the early going, with Weller leading lap one, Stitzel leading laps two and three, and Weller reclaiming the lead on lap four.

Ott made it a race between the yellow #25 cars after passing Stitzel for second on lap seven. Following the race’s final caution (a lap 12 caution for a spinning Mark Smith in turn one), Ott took the lead from Weller on the restart and drove away to a 4-second win, his first at Lincoln since 2011.

Weller crossed second, with Stitzel, Greg Hodnett, and Davie Franek rounding out the top five.

Lincoln swings back into action next weekend, Saturday, July 18th, with the DARYL GOHN/GLENN GOHN, SR. MEMORIAL FINALE for 410 Sprints plus 358 Sprints “Nouse Signs & Graphics Summer Series” event, and Central PA Legends. Gates open at 5:30 PM, racing set to get underway at 7:30 PM.

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

Wolfe Wins Port Royal Sprint Car Thriller, Rine Annihilates Late Model Chshp

Devin Hart Wins Career First In Econo Lates

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

7/11/15

Port Royal ? Lucas Wolfe made a thrilling last lap, last corner pass to pick up the 410 sprint car victory at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday Night, becoming the third and final leader in the exciting and suspenseful race to record his second win of the year at the track.

Danville?s Jeff Rine annihilated the super late model championship field in the 25-lap affair, winning by nearly 12 seconds for his 12th career victory at the oval.

And in the 18-lap econo late model main, local driver Devin Hart led flag to flag to record his first ever Port Royal win in the division.

Logan Wagner had the pole for the 25-lap sprint car main and fought off Brock Zearfoss in the opening laps to begin streaking away from the field on the extreme high side of the speedway.

But fourth starter and three time winner Steve Buckwalter had his own designs on the lead and he blistered by Zearfoss for second on the third lap only to see Zearfoss fight back on lap four.

Wagner entered the backmarkers on the fifth tour with Buckwalter in tow but Wagner did fine with his high wire act in the lead until he came upon the backmarker of Curt Stroup who was directly ahead with 10 laps to go.

Wagner struggled to put Stroup a lap down and that gave Buckwalter the chances he needed to make stabs at the lead with shots to the inside before he made a move work with nine laps to go.

Wagner tried to fight back but Buckwalter was stronger and appeared as if he was headed to his fourth oval win of the year but third starter Lucas Wolfe, who faded early, was on the move.

Wolfe got by Wagner with just two laps to go using the inside of the second corner for drives that cut into Buckwalter?s lead.

And on the final circuit, he used the groove to pull up on Buckwalter?s rear bumper as the pair traversed the backchute, headed for the third corner.

And with a textbook move, Wolfe jabbed the Zemco No. 1 machine deep into the third corner before sliding up in front of Buckwalter to steal the victory as the pair raced back to the checkered flag.

Wolfe?s margin was just .282 seconds over Buckwalter with Wagner third followed by Brent Marks and Zearfoss.

Sixth through 10th went to Dylan Cisney, Mike Wagner, Dave Ely, Rick Lafferty and Mike Erdley.

Heats went to Buckwalter, Zearfoss and Marks.

Trent Brenneman took the lead at the start of the super late model championship race after an initial start frontstretch melee.

Some 12 cars were involved in the crash started when the rear of the field checked up as two cars at the front made contact.

With the field rearranged for another start, Brenneman took control over Tim Smith Jr. with both Dan Stone and Jeff Rine starting eighth and ninth, respectively.

Stone made his presence known during the first several laps with Rine following him through to the front.

Stone drove around Andy Haus for third on the sixth tour but a yellow flag a lap later slowed the pace.

Rine lined up fourth for the restart and when green reappeared instead of Stone pressuring for second, Rine bolted to his inside as the pair raced into the first corner to take over third.

After getting the third spot, Rine motored by Tim Smith Jr. for second before another yellow with nine laps down placed Rine directly on Brenneman?s rear deck.

The restart was ?all she wrote? for Brenneman as Rine?s advances were simply unequalled.

Once at the helm, Rine just poured on the speed to drive to an 11.717 second win over Stone, who took second with two laps to go.

At the finish, Rine?s advantage found him in the middle of the first and second corners while the second place car of Stone was entering the third corner.

Brenneman rode home third followed by Smith and Andy Haus.

Sixth through 10th went to Mike Lupfer, Brett Schadel, Patrick Bryner, Nick Dickson and Hayes Mattern.

Heats went to Lupfer, Rine and Smith.

Devin Hart led all 18 laps of the econo late model feature to take the win over Troy Miller.

Miller took over second when Dillan Stake dropped out of the spot on the seventh tour.

Hart?s margin of victory was 3.272 seconds.

Andrew Yoder was third followed by Eric Irvin and Tim Fedder.

Heats went to Miller and Yoder.

Superman Alan Krimes Wins Williams Grove Sprints

Dietz becomes first repeat winner of season in 358 sprints

7/10/15

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Mechanicsburg  Superman Alan Krimes scored an annihilating sprint car victory at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, taking his first oval win of the year by 8.403 seconds in the 25-lap 410 sprint car main.

In the 25-lap 358 sprint main, Chase Dietz won his second feature of the year, becoming the first repeat winner in the class this season.

Tim Glatfelter led from the outset of the 410 sprint main from the second starting spot while Lance Dewease worked to take second from Daryl Stimeling.

Krimes started fifth in the field and drove into fourth with four laps down.

Krimes used the outside lane to move to the front and get by Brent Marks for third with five away before changing lanes to the bottom to run down leaders Glatfelter and Dewease.

It took several laps for him to track down the front duo before driving by Dewease on the 11th tour and then biting fast to pass Glatfelter two laps later.

Once in front, Krimes just continued to stretch his lead, finishing nearly a full half lap ahead of Dewease to record the fifth win of his career at the track.

?When the track gets really wide like this, our car works really well,? Krimes said in victory lane.

Seventh starter Steve Buckwalter moved steadily to the front during the race, making it a three-car race for second during the final five laps.

Dewease eventually secured second with Buckwalter getting by Glatfelter for third.

Glatfelter finished fourth followed by Lucas Wolfe.

Sixth through 10th went to Danny Dietrich, a fading Brent Marks, Austin Hogue, Brock Zearfoss and Brian Montieth.

Heats went to Buckwalter, Marks and Stimeling.

The race began with a red flag for a backstretch flip by Scott Wilson that landed him outside turn three while Freddie Rahmer clouted the inside rail.

Russell Hammaker led the first pair of laps in the 358 sprint main before Phil Walter took over.

Walter would lead as Chase Dietz worked his way front, taking over second on just the fourth lap after rocketing into contention from the fifth row.

Dietz was strong in the Godfrey No. 5 and overtook Walter on the eighth tour to secure the win and lead the rest of the distance.

It was his third career oval win and second of the season.

The 358 event was the first in the four race Nouse Signs & Graphics Summer Series staged between Williams Grove and Lincoln Speedways.

Matt Campbell took second from Walter on the final lap with Glenndon Forsythe riding home fourth followed by Doug Hammaker.

Sixth through 10th went to Adrian Shaffer, Kevin Nouse, Bill Stine, Kody Lehman and Jason Shultz.

Heats went to Walter, Stine and Russell Hammaker with Brie Hershey taking the consolation.

SMITH SETS PA SPEEDWEEK 5-WIN RECORD WITH VICTORY IN OPPERMAN/BOGAR MEMORIAL SUNDAY AT SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY; CLINCHES FIRST PA SPEEDWEEK TITLE FOR CAR OWNER FRED RAHMER CRISSWELL & REESER SCORE WINS IN SUPER SPORTSMAN & 305 SPRINTS

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY – Stevie Smith of Broken Arrow, Okla., ended the 25th Anniversary Jake’s Wayback Burgers/Trone Outdoor PA Speedweek series the way he started it—in Victory Lane!—with a convincing win in Sunday night’s Jan Opperman/Dick Bogar Memorial for 410 sprint cars at Selinsgrove Speedway.

The $5,000 win marked Smith’s seventh career at Selinsgrove driving Fred Rahmer’s Miller Bros. Chevrolet No. 51-S. Smith’s performance Sunday night also earned him the Fast Tees Fast Time Award (16.562) and his first career PA Speedweek title that paid $10,000 to the champion for the first time. He became the first driver to win five races in a single series.

Chad Criswell of Martinsburg, W.Va., held of Kevin Knouse of Mechanicsburg for his first career win at Selinsgrove Speedway in the 20-lap super sportsman feature, while Tyler Reeser of Orwigsburg also scored his first win at the track in the 20-lap 305 sprint car feature.

The 410 sprint cars return to Selinsgrove Speedway Saturday, Sept. 19, for the Jim Nace Memorial/33rd Annual National Open.

Second-place starter Danny Dietrich powered into the lead at the start of the sprint car feature. Racing off turn four to complete the first lap, fourth-place starter Stevie Smith used the inside lane to secure the front spot.

By the fifth circuit, Smith began to encounter slower traffic as Dietrich and sixth-place starter Aaron Ott dueled for the runner-up position. By lap nine, an intense three-car battle unfolded at the front of the pack between Smith, Dietrich and Ott.

The race’s first caution flag unfolded on lap 11 when Mallie Shuster spun his sprint car in turn four. On the lap 12 restart, third-place starter Greg Hodnett got by polesitter Lucas Wolfe for the fourth spot. Ott then made a thrilling pass in turn two to get by Dietrich for second. A lap later, Hodnett advanced to third.

On the 17th circuit, Hodnett drove by Ott for second and set his sights on Smith. Despite several late-race cautions, Smith was able to hold the field at bay. In the final laps, however, Hodnett began to reel in Smith in a last-ditch effort to pull off a pass for the win. At the checkered flag, Smith was victorious by just .57 of a victory over Hodnett, Ott, Dietrich, and fifth-place starter Brent Marks.

In the super sportsman feature, polesitter Danny Walsh led the first two laps until third-place starter Chad Criswell made the winning pass on the frontstretch. On a lap four restart, 12th-place starter Kevin Nouse passed several cars using the outside lane around turns one and two to take over the fourth spot.

On a lap seven restart, Nouse drove by fourth-place starter Chad Trout for the runner-up spot and began to close in on Criswell. At the halfway point, Nouse was in striking distance as he and Criswell raced through traffic.

In the final laps, Criswell held off Nouse by .95 of a second for his third victory of the season at three different tracks. Mike Enders, Frankie Herr, and Trout completed the top five.

Second-place starter Tyler Reese pulled into the lead at the start of the 305 sprint car feature and wired the field for his first-ever win at the track. Reese checked out from the field early in the race and opened up more than a straightaway lead over polesitter Derrick Bowersox. Late in the race, current points leader and ninth-place starter Zach Newlin advanced to the second position.

At the checkered flag, Reese posted a convincing nine-second margin of victory over Newlin, Bowersox, James Pryde, and Drew Ritchey.

Central PA 358 Point Series presented by Capitol Renegade

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

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

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

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

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

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

Buckwalter Outlasts Smith And Hodnett For Port Royal Speedweek Win

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

7/5/15

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Heats went to Lupfer, Haus and Schmidt.

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

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

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

7/3/15

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Hodnett rode home fourth followed by Aaron Ott.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Zechman finished third followed by Wayne Dutterer and Kory Sites.

Heats went to Morgan, Sites and Heller.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Zimmerman wins sixth straight at Lincoln in All-American Outlaws

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

All American Outlaw heats were won by Nester and Zimmerman.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

PA SPEEDWEEK FINALE/OPPERMAN-BOGAR MEMORIAL:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

`

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The next Fred Rahmer Promotions event is Wednesday, August 26 (raindate: Thursday, August 27) for ‘Legends at Lincoln’ featuring some of sprint car racing’s greatest drivers, both current and retired competing at Lincoln Speedway. The legends will compete in their own event in modern versions of the cars they once made famous. But it doesn’t stop there, the Legends at Lincoln Invitational Challenge will see six of the best 410 Sprint Car drivers compete in six five-lap races in a $10,000 winner takes all event. Details for the event will be released in the next few weeks.

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

6/28/15

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

Friday?s Mitch Smith Memorial will use time trials to set the field as do all speedweek events and the feature will be 30 laps in distance.

A special holiday fireworks display is also slated during the program.

The Saturday Series street stocks will also be on the July 3 racing card.

The Mitch Smith Memorial began in honor of the late star in 1989.

Known affectionately to most as the ?Linglestown Leadfoot,? Smith was one of the most electric sprint car stars to ever grace the Cumberland County oval and the Central Pa region with his talents.

Perhaps his biggest claim to fame was his trumping of the world-renowned USAC sprint car stars when they came east to Williams Grove Speedway in 1971.

For comparison purposes, USAC was in 1971 what the World of Outlaws is to sprint car racing today.

They just simply didn?t get beat.

Except by Mitch Smith in Central Pa in 1971.

The USAC?ers were furious.

The PA drivers and fans were famous.

At the end of his four-decade career in 1978, Mitch Smith had amassed 179 overall total career feature wins including 27 in a sprint car and nine in a super modified at Williams Grove alone.

Smith drove for owners like Mary Flack in the Flying Tiger, John Regester, Gary Wasson and Al Hamilton in the famed No. 77.

After being felled by a massive heart attack in 1988, Smith was posthumously inducted into the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame in 1995.

Fred Rahmer and Lance Dewease have done the best in the Smith Memorial over the years, each owning four victories.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

NAPA AUTO PARTS PRESENTS. . . . .

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

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

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

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

While all eyes are on Smith and Hodnett, the door sits wide open for someone to come in and steal the $5,000 top prize – and their first Thunder on the Hill win. That someone could be Gettysburg, PA’s Danny Dietrich – currently sitting third in the Speed Week Points – Dietrich finished 3rd in Grandview’s event last year.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Stevie Smith Kickstarts PA Speedweek With Williams Grove Victory

Gargiulo takes ARDCs

6/26/15

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Heats went to Tim Buckwalter and Wean.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

ARDC Midgets join speedweek sprints

6/21/15

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

And this could be the year for Heffner.

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

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

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

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

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

Port Royal Speedway

6/20/15

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

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

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

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

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

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

Campbell scores 358 sprint championship

6/19/15

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Heats went to Dietz, Todd Reed and Campbell.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

TJ Stutts of Liverpool won the inaugural race in 2001 and scored victories in 2003 and 2013. In Pat Cannon of Etters, however, was the first three-time winner of the 358-360 sprint car Open in 2012. Cannon’s other victories were in 2007 and 2008.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Williams Grove Speedway Saturday Night News

Family Entertainment At Family Prices

Williams Grove Speedway

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

Mechanicsburg, PA., June 14, 2015

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Saturday Night Series returns to action this week featuring the Blazer’s Body Shop Super Sportsman, Credit Connection Auto Sales 358 Late Models and Aquafun Pools Street Stocks. Also taking part in the evening’s festivities will be the Eastern Museum of Motor Racing photo shoot featuring several restored race cars. Racing action begins at 7 PM.

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

6/14/15

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Davis gets xtreme stocks

6/13/15

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Wagner rode home fourth followed by Nouse.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Heats went to Bryner and Hack.

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

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

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

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

Heats went to Miller, Johnathan Jones and Reeser.

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

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

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

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

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

Halligan scores second career win in 358 sprints

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

All Stars Sprints Poised For Another Williams Grove Run Friday

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

6/7/15

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

The PASS 305 sprints are also on the racing program.

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

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

Greg Hodnett went on to claim the victory.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Buckwalter Drives Heffner To ARDC Checkers, Irvin Gets Econo Lates

6/7/15

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Heats went to Shaun Miller and Jared Fulkroad.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Kreitz And Michael Score Exciting Williams Grove Sprint Wins

Buckwalter leads both mains, comes up with second and third

6/5/15

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Josh Weller scored the consolation race.

Williams Grove Speedway

Williams Grove Speedway Presents School’s Out Special Saturday Night

Mechanicsburg, PA June 3, 2015

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

BRIAN MONTIETH THRILLS IN ANOTHER LINCOLN WIN;

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

358 Sprint point leader Doug Hammaker came from 11th to finish second, followed by Brie Hershey, 10th starting Jeff Rohrbaugh and Jeff Halligan.

Completing the top 10 were Todd Rittenhouse, Jr. 19th starting Chandler Leiby, Brian Allman, Cody Fletcher and last week’s winner Cole Young.

Heats for the 27 358’s were won by Tracy, Lucas Montgomery and Hershey.

Kurt Zimmerman led all 20 laps to score the win in the All American Outlaw feature.

Zimmerman started on the pole and held off teammate Rich Hulson to pick up the win with Jim Chenoweth, Dylan Keim and Carnie Fryfogle rounding out the top five finishers.

Lincoln Speedway swings right back into action this Wednesday night, June 3rd, with a special mid-week show featuring the return of the AMSOIL USAC Sprints along with the 358/360 Challenge that will include there make‐up from 2014 rained out racing program. Racing action gets underway at 7 PM, with gates opening at 5 PM.

Then next Saturday night, June 6th, it will be another big night at the Pigeon Hills oval with the annual running of JOHN GLEIM JR. EXCAVATING NIGHT which includes the special “DIRT CLASSIC” QUALIFIER for the 410 Sprints ($7,000 to win) plus 358 Sprints. Time trials get underway at 7:30 PM, with gates opening at 5:30 PM.

Williams Grove Speedway Saturday Night News

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

Mechanicsburg, PA May 31, 2015

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Nouse Wins Thrilling Sprint Car Feature

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

5/31/15

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Heats went to Dave Hahn, Hodnett and Sammons.

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

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

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

5/29/15

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Heats went to Montieth and Hodnett.

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

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

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

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

Dietz was finally able to make a low move in the first corner work with seven laps to go before cruising uncontested t
