Hanover, PA
 

CENTRAL PA “SHOOTOUT SERIES” TO EXPAND IN 2016

Hanover, PA (1/30/16) – It all began with two racetracks. Hanover’s Trail-Way Speedway and Abbottstown’s Lincoln Speedway decided several years ago to try a 358 Sprint Car Shootout. It was a program that was designed to help both tracks bring in higher car counts while racing for a series payout. The Shootout Series provided an opportunity for many race teams to visit other tracks that normally weren’t on their racing schedules, whether racing for points or just for fun. In an attempt to build on what these two tracks had started, Trail-Way Speedway owners and promoters Brad, Perry and Barry Hostetter have decided to extend the Shootout Series to several other Trail-Way divisions, including the 600 Micro Sprints, Street Stocks/Xtreme Stocks, Limited Stocks/Road Warriors, Hoosier Tire Mid-Atlantic 358 Sprint Cars and the return of the 410 Sprint Cars!

Newly appointed Shootout Series director, Jeremy Mehring, organized the 2015 600 Micro Shootout and was looking for a larger challenge in 2016 by expanding the series to other divisions. Mehring owned and raced a 600 Micro Sprint for several years and wanted to give back to the sport he loved so much.
“I knew the cost of the sport and how much time and effort it takes to race a car weekly, so I wanted to give back to the drivers and race teams that dedicate their time and efforts to our local race tracks.”
Mehring is currently in the process of ironing out sponsor deals and race-day specifics.
“I really thought this would be cool for the fans to see new drivers and also for drivers to travel to new tracks. This is really about expanding our divisions for the enjoyment of our race fans.”

The Shootout Series consists of two to three races per division, wherein each driver accumulates points from their feature finishes at each participating track. The highest point finisher will be crowned “Champion” of their Shootout. Special awards will also be given to other top finishers such as “Hard Charger” and “Hard Luck” awards. Each Shootout Series will award the top five finishers with a cash prize, including for some, sponsored product prizes!

The 2016 Shootout Series begins with the 600 Micro Sprints, who visit Linda’s Speedway on Friday, June 10, then travel to Trail-Way Speedway on Sunday, July 10 (with 410 Sprints), and complete their Shootout at Path Valley Speedway on Saturday, July 16. Trail-Way Speedway Street Stocks will be teaming up with the Susquehanna Speedway Xtreme Stocks for a Shootout Series, which will begin at Susquehanna on Saturday, June 18, and then travel to Trail-Way on Friday, August 12. The Trail-Way Limited Stocks and Susquehanna Road Warriors will also take part in their own Shootout Series, which will start at Trail-Way on Saturday, July 2 (Junk Car Demo), and will finish at Susquehanna on Saturday, July 9.

The Trail-Way Speedway Friday night headliner, Hoosier Tire Mid-Atlantic 358 Sprints, will continue their annual Trail-Way/Lincoln Shootout. Lincoln kicks off the two-race series on Saturday, August 27, and then completes the series at Trail-Way on Friday, September 2.

The 410 Sprint Cars will be returning to Trail-Way Speedway in a three-race Shootout Series with Susquehanna and Lincoln Speedways. The Series will start Saturday, July 9, at Lincoln Speedway and will continue the following night, Sunday, July 10, at Trail-Way Speedway for the 1st Annual Armin Hostetter Memorial. The 410 Shootout Series will conclude on Sunday, July 17, at Susquehanna Speedway.

The Shootout Series is currently looking for additional sponsors who are interested in participation with our Series. You can visit our website trail-wayspeedway.com and click the “Shootout” link on the right to view some of our sponsor ideas!

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Williams Grove, Selinsgrove, and Utica-Rome Speedways, in partnership with the United Racing Club (URC) and Empire Super Sprint (ESS) organizations, announced one of the biggest weekends for 360 sprint car racing in the United States July 29-31 with the inaugural Mid-Atlantic Crown.

More than $80,000 in prize money will be posted for three consecutive nights of 360 sprint car racing at the three aforementioned race tracks located in the northeast this summer. The “Weekend of Money” is expected to draw the best 360 sprint car drivers from all parts of the United States and Canada and will determine an overall champion.

The Mid-Atlantic Crown weekend will kick off Friday, July 29, at the historic Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa., with the annual 360 Nationals paying $4,000 to win. In addition to the special 360 sprint car event at the Grove, drivers will have the opportunity to compete double-duty in a full program of 410 sprint car racing.

Selinsgrove Speedway, located in Selinsgrove, Pa., where 360 sprint cars are the weekly headline open wheel division, will present the 16th Annual Mach 1 Chassis National Open paying $10,000 to win Saturday, July 30, on Night Two of the Mid-Atlantic Crown weekend.

Following the two events in central Pennsylvania, the Mid-Atlantic Crown moves north to the Empire State at the Utica-Rome Speedway in Vernon, N.Y., Sunday, July 31, for the $10,000-to-win Cole Cup, and where the overall Mid-Atlantic Crown championship will be determined.

"The Empire Super Sprints are honored to be a part of what we hope will be an historic and annual weekend,” said Dean Reynolds, Vice President of Empire Super Sprints. “Never before have you seen three tracks work together in putting on their biggest 360 events all in one weekend. Not only is there a lucrative amount of money to win at each but if a team just makes the three A-Mains they will take home well over $1,000. That just shows tremendous support from all three great facilities. We are very excited!"

“The United Racing Club is excited to be involved with the first Weekend of Money,” said Curt Michael, URC’s defending champion and booking agent. “It's a great thing for 360's when three awesome race tracks can work together along with URC and ESS to bring both the fans and the race teams a very unique high profile weekend. This is something new that hopefully continues to get bigger and better each year.”

A $2,000 point fund for the 360 sprint car weekend spectacular has already been established and is expected to grow in the coming months.

More details related to the first Mid-Atlantic Crown for 360 sprint cars will be released as they become available.

TRAIL-WAY SPEEDWAY GEARS UP FOR 2016 SEASON

Hanover, PA (1/18/16) – With the 2016 racing season around the corner, Hanover’s Trail-Way Speedway is excited to announce an action-packed schedule, a revamped track look, and the return of the 410 Sprint Cars! Trail-Way Speedway will open their 44th consecutive season on Saturday, March 19, with the 600 Micro Sprints, Mason Dixon 270 Micros Sponsored by Lucas Oil, and the Central PA Legends.

A significant change during the off-season was the widening of the speedway surface. This January, Trail-Way Speedway widened the turns and front stretch by several feet. Although each turn is slightly different than the other, all four turns were widened by nearly 10 feet. Turn 2 saw the most significant increase in space and was widened by 14 feet. These changes were made not only to make the track more driver-friendly, but also to give the fans a more exciting race by increasing the driver’s ability to pass.

The Shootout Series will be an exciting addition to the 2016 schedule. Trail-Way Speedway will team up with several different Pennsylvania race tracks to host a Shootout Series, which will tally feature finishing points from each track and offer an additional payout to the top five drivers at the end of the Series.

Big Mike’s Crabhouse & Grill in Hanover, PA, will return as the Hard Charger sponsor, offering a $25 gift certificate to the driver that advances the most positions in the 358 Sprint Car feature races.

The Precise Racing Products 358 Late Model Series will return to Trail-Way Speedway in 2016 with six scheduled races, including the season-ending 18th Annual Thunder on the Farm, paying $1,200 to win. This year’s Precise Racing Products 358 Late Model Series saw a significant increase in the amount of scheduled races. The race tracks involved in the 2016 Precise Racing Products 358 Late Model Series will be Trail-Way Speedway, Lincoln Speedway, and Susquehanna Speedway.

The 600 Micro Sprints will begin their 14-race season on opening day, Saturday, March 19. The 600 Micro Sprints will also be involved in a three-race Shootout Series, which will include races at Linda’s Speedway on Friday, June 10; Trail-Way Speedway on Sunday, July 10 (with the 410 Sprints); and will conclude Saturday, July 16, at Path Valley Speedway. The Mason Dixon 270 Micro Sprints Sponsored by Lucas Oil will also begin their season on opening day, Saturday, March 19.

KEVIN GOBRECHT CLASSIC SET FOR MAY 8, 2016 AT SUSQUEHANNA SPEEDWAY

By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

12/27/15 NEWBERRYTOWN, PA

There is no doubt that the 2016 season at Susquehanna Speedway will be one of the most talked about on the local racing scene.

And one of the events that will highlight the first year for new track owner Scott Gobrecht will be presented on Mothers Day, Sunday May 8, 2016 with a raindate of Sunday, May 15, 2016.

It will be the inaugural Kevin Gobrecht Classic for 410 Sprint Cars and will be a special night for not only the Gobrecht family but also for the legions of Kevin Gobrecht fans around Central Pennsylvania.

Affectionately known as the “G-Man”, Gobrecht’s life was cut way too short after sustaining fatal injuries in a sprint car crash in Greenwood, Nebraska on September 24, 1999. He would have been 47 years old on May 2,2016.

Kevin’s memory and legacy will always be remembered and the first annual Kevin Gobrecht Classic will be just another way for friends, family and race fans to do just that.

The event will also be on Mother’s Day and will be a special day for Kevin’s biggest fan, his mother Donna Gobrecht.

Exciting details will be announced leading up to this event but race fans are urged to mark their calendars now for this event which will be one of the highlights of the 2016 racing schedule.

Fans can visit www.sspracing.net for the latest news and upcoming events at the newly owned Susquehanna Speedway.

 

 

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY

ROB TREGO APPOINTED SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY LEAD TECH INSPECTOR

SELINSGROVE, Pa. -- Rob Trego of Mifflinburg has been appointed Selinsgrove Speedway’s lead technical inspector for the 2016 season. Trego will have responsibility for overseeing safety and technical inspections of the speedway’s weekly racing divisions.

“After meeting with Rob about the future of racing at Selinsgrove I was convinced he’s the right person for this job,” said speedway general manager Steve Inch. “He has a wealth of mechanical knowledge and is a good communicator.”

Trego has been involved in auto racing for more than 28 years, including about 20 years of experience as an engine builder. While many of his years in racing have been spent in the stock car pit area, he’s also had ample opportunity to turn the wrenches on sprint cars alongside his brother Rusty Trego, a noted central Pennsylvania sprint car mechanic.

A full-time mechanic by trade, Trego has also helped his sons Darian and Drew come through the go kart racing ranks.

Trego is currently reviewing the speedway’s rulebook with track officials and expects to release minor updates for the 2016 season shortly after January 1, when he will be available to field questions for next season.

The 360 sprint cars, super late models, pro stocks, and roadrunners will be return in 2016. Track officials are in the process of finalizing the 2016 schedule.

Selinsgrove Speedway is scheduled to open Saturday, March 19, with the Race of Champions Icebreaker for big block modifieds.

The All Star Circuit of Champions sprints will make just one appearance at the track next season, on August 19 for the Jack Gunn Memorial.

The United Racing Club 360 c.i. sprints have a healthy five dates inked on the 2016 schedule while the regular Williams Grove HJ Towing & Recovery 358 sprints enjoy 11 total shows on the agenda.

June 22 will find a rare show at the track as the historic oval hosts the return of the Super DIRTcar Series big block modifieds for the first time since 2006. The URC sprints will join the big blocks for the Thursday show.

Other divisions appearing on the 2016 schedule include ARDC Midgets, PASS IMCA 305 sprints, street stocks, super sportsman, limited late models and super late models.

The super lates join the 410 sprints for the season opener in March before returning twice more.

The regular Williams Grove 410 sprints cars, aside from competing in the season-long Lawrence Chevrolet point title chase, will also be taking part in two other series of races within the overall title chase.

The Hoosier Diamond Series will again be staged with a champion declared based on performances in select races during the year while a new series of sorts, the Yellow Breeches 500 races take place on April 1, April 15, May 6, July 8 and August 26.

The Yellow Breeches 500 races will be handicapped races paying a healthy increase of $500 to start each feature.

MONTIETH CLAIMS FIFTH TRACK CHAMPIONSHIP IN LINCOLN 410 SPRINTS;

Doug Hammaker edges Matt Campbell by five points to take first Lincoln title in 358 sprint division

YORK, PA, 11/21/15 - Lincoln Speedway track champions and special year-end awards were handed out at the Wyndham Garden York Hotel Saturday night, November 21st. The top ten finishers in the season-long point series for both sprint car divisions and special awards were distributed to rookies’ of-the-year and most improved driver.

MONTIETH WINS BIG RACES, INCLUDING “DIRT CLASSIC” TO CLAIM FIFTH LAWRENCE CHEVROLET TRACK CHAMPIONSHIP

Phoenixville’s Brian Montieth rode the strength of six wins and 21 top-ten finishes in 24 races to claim his fifth Lincoln track title. Among his wins were the Spring Championship, Sterner Memorial, All-Star Circuit of Champions show, and the biggest race in Lincoln history, the Second Annual “Dirt Classic.” Sixteen of those 21 top-ten finishes were actually top fives. Back-to-back victories on weeks two and three (the Spring Championship) vaulted Montieth into a points lead he never relinquished. Montieth’s other win came in a regular point show on May 30th. Montieth’s “Dirt Classic” win was a milestone 50th, sixth on all the all-time Lincoln win list. His fifth title is third to only Fred Rahmer (11) and Steve Smith (9). Montieth’s title also earned Scott Zellers Lincoln’s mechanic of-the-year award.

2014 track champ Alan Krimes won the Hilly Rife Memorial, scored nine top-five finishes and 18 top-ten finishes to a runner-up finish in season points.

2014 national and Lincoln rookie of-the-year Austin Hogue of Dover certainly didn’t suffer the dreaded sophomore jinx. Though he didn’t get a Lincoln win in ’15, he did score six top-five and 13 top-ten finishes in a competitive Lincoln field to finish third in season points. Hogue was also awarded the inaugural Harry Fletcher Sportsmanship Award.

Kyle Moody, voted by track officials as the most improved driver of the year, went winless at Lincoln in 2015, but did lead 36 laps during the season and contended for the win in several events. He registered two top-five and 10 top-ten finishes to end fourth in season points.

Rounding out the top five in the season point series was six-time winner Danny Dietrich. Though traveling a few times and missing races, Dietrich was able to garner 16 top-five finishes, trying champ Montieth for the series lead in that category. He also scored 18 top-ten finishes, meaning his was in the top five all but two races during the year. Among his wins were the John Gleim “Dirt Classic Qualifier,” first PA Speedweek show at Lincoln, and final Gohn Memorial.

Sixth through tenth in season points were Cory Haas, Jim Siegel, Robbie Kendall, Freddie Rahmer, and Gerard McIntyre, Jr. (whose lone win came in the season finale Hank Gentzler Memorial Manufacturers Night).

Brothers Brandon and Freddie Rahmer both scored their first-career 410 sprint wins during the season, and they came on back-to-back weeks August 29th and September 5th.

Other Lincoln wins in 2015 were recorded by Greg Hodnett (who won both the season opener and the World of Outlaws race on May 13th), and single-race winners J.J. Grasso, Glenndon Forsythe, Jim Siegel, Stevie Smith, Lance Dewease, and Chase Dietz, Lincoln’s rookie of-the-year who won on Premier Auto Works Night.

All told, there were 13 different winners in 24 races at Lincoln in 2015.

SPECIAL AWARDS WINNERS (410 Sprints)

Super Sprint Champion – Brian Montieth

Mechanic of the Year – Scott Zellers

Rookie of the Year – Chase Dietz

Harry Fletcher Sportsmanship Award – Austin Hogue

Most Improved Driver – Kyle Moody

DOUG HAMMAKER CLAIMS FIRST-EVER LINCOLN SPEEDWAY KEIZER ALUMINUM WHEELS TRACK CHAMPIONSHIP

Carlisle’s Doug Hammaker won three times during the season to edge Matt Campbell by a mere five points and claim his first track title in Lincoln’s 358 sprint car division. Despite a rainout on the final points race of the year, Hammaker came back to win the season finale on October 10th and put an exclamation point on a thrilling season-long points chase that saw several point leaders during the year. All told, Hammaker scored 11 top-five and 12 top-ten finishes in 16 events.

Fawn Grove’s Campbell won two races and finished second in season points. He challenged Hammaker down the stretch with six top-five and a series-leading 13 top-ten finishes.

Fellow two-time winner and former two-time track champ (2008 & 2011) Jeff Rohrbaugh finished third in season points. His two wins tied him with Cory Haas atop the all-time Lincoln career 358 sprint car win list with 13. He ended the season with seven top-five and 11 top-ten finishes and won the Trail-Way/Lincoln 358 “Shootout” on the strength of two second-place finishes.

Lady driver Brie Hershey of Dillsburg completed a solid year by finishing fourth in season points. She four top-five and nine top-ten finishes.

Cody Fletcher earned the most improved driver award on the strength of three top-five and nine top-ten finishes to finish fifth in the season point series. He also received the Harry Fletcher Memorial Sportsmanship Award, in honor of his grandfather, who passed away late in the 2015 season.

Sixth through tenth in season points were Matt Findley, rookie of-the-year Cole Young (who scored his first career win on May 23rd), Chandler Leiby (one win), Tyler Esh, and Kyle Denmyer.

Other drivers who picked up their first Lincoln career wins in 2015 were Kody Lehman, Davie Franek, Bill Stine, and Jeff Halligan (who won twice).

Other winners during the year were Todd Rittenhouse, Jr. (who won opening night) and Adrian Shaffer (who missed some races but finished 11th in the final point standings).

All told, there were 12 different winners in 16 events.

Dietrich Wins $10,000 at the 6th Annual Final Showdown at SSP on Saturday

Newberrytown, PA (November 14, 2015) – The 6th Annual Final Showdown for the 410 Sprint Cars at the Susquehanna Speedway Park on Saturday afternoon, November 14 went to Danny Dietrich of Thomasville. York’s Chase Dietz took the 358 Sprint Car portion as well claiming the 20-lap feature event.

By virtue of qualifying sixth in time trials, Lance Dewease started in the pole position of the 30-lap 410 Sprint Car feature event. At the green, outside polesitter Gerard McIntyre Jr. grabbed the early lead. Just after the midway point of the race on lap 17, Danny Dietrich made his way by McIntyre to take the lead. As the laps wound down and Dietrich entered lapped traffic, Justin Henderson began making a late race charge for the lead. Henderson ran out of laps as Dietrich took the victory over Henderson. Dewease finished third, followed by Greg Hodnett and Brian Montieth in fourth and fifth places respectively.

Heat race wins went to Brent Marks, Justin Henderson and Steve Buckwalter. Kyle Moody won the consolation event. Greg Hodnett was the fast qualifier in time trials with a time of 14.397 seconds (existing one-lap track record is 14.256 seconds set by Ryan Smith at the same event last season).

In the 20-lap 358 Sprint Car feature, Kyle Denmyer took the lead from the pole position. Sixth place starter Chase Dietz immediately challenged Denmyer and took the top spot on lap 13. Dietz went on to take the victory for the second year in a row at this event over Doug Haammaker who also got around Denmyer on lap 13. Denmyer came across the finish line in third, followed by Chris Frank in fourth. Jake Eldreth rounded out the top five. Qualifying heat race winners were Tyler Walton and Doug Hammaker.

SELINSGROVE FAIR ASSOCIATION INKS TENTATIVE DEAL WITH NEW PROMOTIONAL TEAM TO OPERATE SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY IN 2016

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – A tentative deal is in place for a new promotional team to operate Selinsgrove Speedway beginning in 2016, according to an announcement Wednesday evening by Dawayne Betzer, president of the Selinsgrove Fair Association, Inc., which has oversight of the historic Snyder County half-mile dirt track.

Mike Heffner of Hellertown, a successful championship sprint car team owner, will head a group which includes Alan Kreitzer of Mechanicsburg. Heffner said that the group has named Steve Inch of Lewisburg as the track’s new promoter.

“Selinsgrove Speedway has a rich history, which is something I have an appreciation for,” said Heffner, who is the president of Lelands.com, one of the most respected sports memorabilia auction houses in the world. “Everyone involved in this effort believes Selinsgrove Speedway has a lot of potential. We didn’t want to see another one of the great historic tracks close its gates for good.”

Kreitzer operates Lincoln Speedway in Hanover with Don and Bob Leiby, and previously promoted Silver Spring and Williams Grove Speedways.

Inch has served as track announcer and publicity director at a number of area race tracks over the last 25 years.

“I feel very fortunate that Mike and Alan and a dedicated group of associate sponsors are behind the speedway going into 2016,” said Inch. “This is an exciting opportunity for me to promote the track where I grew up as a race fan.”

“We look forward to working with Mike, Steve, and the new promotional team,” said Betzer. “I believe the racing community will be as excited as we are to work with this group to continue the great racing tradition at Selinsgrove Speedway.”

“I would like to thank everyone for their patience over the last couple of months,” continued Betzer. “The Fair Association would also like to thank Charlie Paige and his family and staff for all of their work over the last 15 years to help renovate the speedway for future generations of race fans to enjoy.”

At this time there are no plans to make any major changes to the speedway’s traditional Saturday night programs. The 360 sprint cars, super late models, pro stocks, and roadrunners will share most of the 2016 racing cards with other divisions being considered for special events.

The season will tentatively open with the big block modifieds on Saturday, March 19.

The 410 sprint cars will be at Selinsgrove Speedway for the PA Speedweek finale on Sunday, July 3 (raindate: July 4), and the 34th Annual Jim Nace Memorial National Open Saturday, Sept. 17 (raindate: Sept. 18). Additional 410 sprint car shows will likely be added to the schedule.

Go kart racing will be the main attraction at Selinsgrove Raceway Park, the one-fifth mile track located inside of Selinsgrove Speedway’s half-mile oval, for the 16th straight year.

The first race at Selinsgrove Speedway was held on July 20, 1946, and was won by Hall of Fame driver Bill Holland, who went on to win the 1949 Indianapolis 500. Following a brief closure in the early 1960’s, the speedway reopened in 1963. The upcoming 2016 season will mark the 54th consecutive year of motorsports excitement on the superspeedway of dirt track racing!

Fred Rahmer Promotions Announced 2016 Path Valley Speedway Park Event Dates and Divisions.

SPRING RUN, Pa. (November 3, 2015) – While the sprint car racing season has yet to conclude for most teams, the Fred Rahmer Promotions staff is at work putting together plans for the 2016 racing season. The first step to the elaborate puzzle of dates, activities, parties and promotions is the finalization of dates for the sophomore season of #PartyAtThePath events at Path Valley Speedway Park.

“Planning our Path Valley dates is really just the start of our 2016 season,” Fred Rahmer stated. “We’ve tried to make these events more of a full-day family activity -- instead of just a night at the race track – and that continues to be our goal. I really believe the racing at Path Valley is second to none and we’re working on a lot of ideas to make it just as exciting before the racing starts.”

Rahmer’s series of Path Valley Speedway dates kick-off on Sunday, May 1st, followed by the popular Pennsylvania Sprint Car Speed Week event on Sunday, June 26 and concluding on Sunday, August 28.

The #PartyAtThePath events will once again include the 410 Sprint Cars as the main attraction, with the 600cc winged Micro Sprints – a formula that proved successful in past events.

In 2015, Fred Rahmer Promotions presented 3 events at the Path Valley Speedway and garnered a standing-room-only crowd at Lincoln Speedway for the Legends of Central Pennsylvania event.

Fans are encouraged to visit Fred Rahmer Promotions online at www.fredrahmerpromotions.com, on Facebook at www.facebook.com/fredrahmerpromotions, and on Twitter @RahmerRacing to keep up-to-date on additional events, race formats, payouts and competitor registration information.

Many speedways and sanctioning organizations will be offering information on their events planned for the 2016 season with several using the show to release their schedules.

PRS 2015 – Racing through a new decade with a new attitude! Port Royal Speedway

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

Sweet, Pittman And Schatz Score Outlaws Sweep At To End Port Royal Season

Dan Davies wins area debut of Mid Atlantic Modifieds

10/24/15

Port Royal – Brad Sweet of Grass Valley, CA., led early and late to win the World of Outlaws sprint car feature at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night to close the oval’s 2015 season.

Sweet’s victory, a first career Port Royal win, came with a sweep of the podium positions by the traveling outlaws band over the local Pennsylvania Posse.

The 30-lap win was worth $10,000 for the driver of Kasey Kahne’s No. 49.

Dan Davies won the Mid Atlantic Modified feature over David Stremme to complete the first-ever show in the mid-state for the burgeoning stock car class.

The 2015 Port Royal champion, Lucas Wolfe earned the pole for the World of Outlaws feature by claiming the win in the dash. Shane Stewart started the race in second with Danny Dietrich third and Sweet in fourth.

Only one lap of the main was put in the books when Logan Wagner forced the first caution flag by sitting backwards, against traffic on the frontchute.

Wolfe chose the inside lane for the double file restart and got away from Stewart at the new green with tenth starter Brent Marks already up to third.

With five away Marks was doing his best to hold off Sweet and Daryn Pittman for the spot.

Wolfe entered the backmarkers on the tenth tour with Stewart and now Sweet and Pittman in pursuit as Marks slid backwards.

Sweet motored by Stewart for second with 11 away and then began his track down of the leader.

Sweet was clearly gaining speed as the leader tried to navigate through heavy traffic and he blistered by Wolfe for the lead in the first and second turns of the 14th tour.

In fact, Pittman came along for the ride when Sweet made the pass, relegating Wolfe to a sudden third.

At the halfway point the front trio had Stewart and seventh starter Donny Schatz now up to fifth.

The cream on this night clearly rose to the top during the mid stages of the race with Schatz getting around Wolfe for third to complete the outlaws assault on the front spots with 14 laps to go.

However what had been a flawless performance by Sweet through traffic at the front turned a bit messy with about 10 laps to go and with Pittman hot on his trail and Schatz nearly as close to him, a missed entry in the third corner allowed Pittman to zip by on the inside to take control with eight laps to go.

Pittman then threatened to get away with the win but a final caution flag, again for Logan Wagner, this time with six laps to go, changed the outcome.

Prior to the caution period, Danny Dietrich who had faded from the front early, was motoring forward, threatening to catch the top three by surprise after blasting into fourth to be lined up directly behind them.

But the slowing of the pace also halted his momentum.

Pittman selected to restart on the pole of the double file new line up with Sweet to his outside.

And the restart was exactly what Sweet wanted and needed to get back out in front.

He chased Pittman through the first and second turns before sailing to his outside through the third and fourth turns to reclaim the point with five laps remaining.

Sweet then went on to post a .455 second triumph over Pittman with Schatz 1.8 seconds behind in third.

Dietrich was fourth with Marks finishing fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to 23rd starter Dale Blaney, Greg Wilson, Stewart, Greg Hodnett and Logan Schuchart.

Sweet became the 182nd different driver to win a sprint car feature in the history of Port Royal Speedway.

The entire sprint car program was completed in some 2 hours and 50 minutes.

Fast time over the 47-car field went to Schatz with a lap of 16.199 seconds.

Heats went to Stewart, Sweet, Wolfe and Schuchart.

Wolfe won the dash while Ryan Smith took the C Main and Justin Barger claimed the B Main.

The 20-lap modified main had several caution flag periods.

Denny Perigo led the first five circuits before eighth starter Dan Davies took over to hold on for the win.

Seventh starter David Stremme took second on the seventh tour and despite a pair of restarts giving him a clear shot at the lead he was unable to get control.

Chris Arnold was third followed by Gary Long and Denny Perigo.

Twin heats went to Davies and Stremme with 17 cars in action.

Port Royal 2016 Schedule In The Works, Three-Day Memorial Day Holiday Bob Weikert Memorial Sprint Car Extravaganza Announced

10/25/15

Port Royal – As the checkers fell on the Port Royal Speedway season finale featuring the World of Outlaws sprint cars on Saturday night, work is already underway on the 2016 slate of events.

Work has been ongoing since late August evaluating the calendar for a new season with coordination meetings and phone calls taking place between area divisions and sanctioning bodies.

The newest and biggest event on the 2016 schedule will be the expanded Bob Weikert Memorial.

Originally planned to expand to a two-day format, oval officials announced at the Saturday night season finale that the new format for next season will now see the event become a three-day sprint car blockbuster, taking place over the entire three-day Memorial Day holiday weekend.

The 2016 Weikert Memorial will be a three-day Port Royal PA Posse sprint car racing extravaganza that will span the weekend next season, kicking off the summer with pizzazz.

Dates for the 2016 Bob Weikert Memorial will be Saturday, Sunday and Monday, May 28, 29 and 30, 2016.

Monday’s program will crown the prestigious Weikert Memorial champion as the huge weekend comes to a close.

Details of the Saturday-Sunday-Monday format and oval activities are still being finalized and are currently under review thanks to the Weikert family and Weikert’s Livestock of Fairfield.

Of course the other huge two-day weekend set to take place will be as part of the Juniata County Fair on September 9 and 10 with the annual Tuscarora 50 races scheduled.

Confirmation has already been received regarding the return of the World of Outlaws and All Star Circuit of Champions sprint cars to the Juniata County oval again in 2016.

The 2015 speedway banquet will take place at the Port Royal Community Building on Saturday, November 21.

Tickets are now on sale at a price of $30 each and can be obtained by calling the speedway at 717.527.2303 or by mailing a check or money order to the track, made payable to Port Royal Speedway.

Weather Forces Cancellation of the Party at the Path Season Finale

SPRING RUN, Pa. (October 18, 2015) – Precipitation throughout the day halted action on the Path Valley Speeedway this afternoon, as Fred Rahmer Promotions was forced to cancel the remainder of their 410 Sprint Car and 600cc Micro Sprint Party at the Path season finale.

Battling through a combination of intermittent rain, snow and sleet; the race teams and staff pushed through completing 410 Sprint Car time trials – where Dale Blaney posted a quick time of 10.768– and 600cc Micro Sprint heat races won by Jeffrey Weaver, Tyler Walton, Jason Swerely and Kyle Lick.

Heavy rain began to fall as the first 410 Sprint heat race was pushed onto the track, forcing officials to abandon the racing program and cancel the remainder of the show.

Attendees can use their wristbands and reserved parking passes as rainchecks for any of the Fred Rahmer Promotions events at the Path Valley Speedway in 2016 or can mail their wristbands to Fred Rahmer Promotions, 2131 North Ridge Road, Perkasie, Pa 18944 for a full refund.

With the cancellation, Tyler Walton of Mifflintown, Pa. picked up the 600cc Micro Sprint Series Championship. Walton, who won both of Rahmer’s events, earned himself a test session aboard one of RBR Racing’s 410 Sprint Cars. Bradley Weber of Thomasville, Pa. won a second session through a random drawing.

Port Royal – Port Royal Speedway will drop the final checkered flag of the season with a big season finale featuring the World of Outlaws Sprint Cars and the Mid Atlantic Modifieds this Saturday night, October 24 at 5 pm.

Gates will open at 2 pm.

The World of Outlaws will battle the Pennsylvania Posse sprint car stars in a full program of time trials, heat races, last chance races, a dash and a 30-lap main event paying $10,000 to the winner.

The Mid Atlantic Modifieds will compete in heats and a 20-lap main paying $1,200 to win in the “Bulldog Rear Ends Battle On The Juniata,” presented by Diversified Machine Inc.

The October 24 match up between the outlaws and the posse will be just the ninth in history at the track between the sprint car titans.

Last year, Ryan Smith upended the outlaws stars by holding off Donny Schatz in a run to the finish.

This year, Schatz is as good as he has ever been in his career, having already sealed up another World of Outlaws series title while notching a career-best 31 wins to date on the road.

The North Dakota driver has one win at Port Royal in his career, having taken a WoO race at the track back in 2004.

Other World of Outlaws winners at Port Royal have been: Lynn Paxton, 1979; Don Kreitz Jr., 1986; Doug Wolfgang, 1987; Danny Wood, 2001; Brad Furr, 2002; and Jason Meyers, 2003.

Winners of the now defunct World of Outlaws Division II support series at the track have been: Don Kreitz Jr., 2000; Jeff Shepard, 2000; Lance Dewease, 2001; Todd Shaffer, 2001; and Lance Dewease, 2002.

Schatz’s closest pursuers on the trail this season have been Shane Stewart who currently holds nine wins while Daryn Pittman has five.

Paul McMahan is the most recent series winner after taking a victory at Lawrenceburg, IN., on October 16.

At Port Royal in 2015 nobody has taken more wins than Greg Hodnett who owns six to date. Brent Marks and Steve Buckwalter both own three each.

Lucas Wolfe is the 2015 track champion.

Lelands.com Port Royal $1,000 Open Wheel Madness Bonus Posted!

A 410/URC feature sweep nets one driver total of $8,000!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

10/15/15

Port Royal – Lelands.com has announced an Open Wheel Madness Bonus for this Saturday’s 410 sprint and URC sprint car program at Port Royal Speedway.

If one driver can sweep both main events worth $5,000 and $2,000 respectively, Lelands.com will pay that driver an extra $1,000 for his winning efforts.

That means one driver could walk away from the track on Saturday with $8,000 should he sweep the sprint car mains.

In order to see a sprint car race in the northeast this Saturday, all roads have to lead to Port Royal Speedway for the early evening Open Wheel Madness program of 410 sprints and URC 360/358 sprint cars.

Port Royal Speedway is the only place to see a sprint car race in the region spanning several states on Saturday.

Gates open at 3 pm with racing slated for 5. Warm ups will start at 4:30.

The 410 sprints will race for $5,000 to win and $350 to start a 25-lap feature in the Open Wheel Madness outlaws tune up event, run using the current outlaws format in preparation for next Saturday’s season finale featuring the World of Outlaws sprint cars.

The URC show will be the only appearance of the season by the circuit at Port Royal and the first since 2013.

Drivers Greg Hodnett and Aaron Ott have already expressed their intent to race in both sprint car divisions at the show, thus making them eligible for the Lelands.com bonus.

For 410 sprint competition, Pittsburgh flyer Danny Holtgraver has announced his plans to be on hand for the event with interest from other outside drivers being expressed as well.

Fans coming to the event can expect what is hoped to be a fast-paced show with continuous racing from start to finish.

Management’s goal is to have the entire show completed by 8 pm.

A weekend-long craft, food and flea market fall festival known as Port Royal Foliage Days will be in full swing around the oval on Saturday for fans to attend prior to the big racing event.

Admission to Foliage Days is free with adult grandstand general admission set at just $20 for the sprint doubleheader and students ages 12 – 18 priced at $7.

Lucrative Payout Brings 410 Sprint Car Drivers From All Over to Party at the Path, This Sunday October 18 at Path Valley Speedway

SPRING RUN, Pa. (October 15, 2015) – The boldest and the brightest stars of central Pennsylvania’s Sprint Car scene – and a slew of Ohio-based outsiders -- descend upon the Path Valley Speedway this Sunday, October 18, as Fred Rahmer Promotions present the 2015 finale of the Party at The Path events. Side-by-side action is guaranteed on the Spring Run, PA bullring with a lucrative 410 Sprint Car payout that includes a $6,600 top prize, $1,100 for the tenth position and $500 to start the 40 lap event.

“Our main goal is to give back to the drivers and the fans, that’s been our goal all year long,” promoter Fred Rahmer said. “We’ve put up, what I feel, is a substantial payout and plan on moving the show along in a timely manner. No messing around on Sunday.”

Along with a payout that would make any true racer’s mouth water, the bonus bucks are plentiful including: a $500 ‘Quick Time’ bonus, a $500 Invader bonus, a $200 Hard Charger Bonus, a $500 bonus to win a heat race from outside the front row, $200 for a heat race win from the front row and a Non-Qualifiers event with a $500 guarantee and the possibility of reaching $1,700.

Area favorites Danny Dietrich, Lucas Wolfe, Brian Montieth, and Brent Marks challenge invaders Cody Darrah, Greg Wilson, Dale Blaney, Danny Holtgraver and Cole Duncan.

The 600cc Micro Sprints are also on the card with a 25 lap event that will pay $1,000 to the winner. A $500 total pot will also be divvied up among Heat race winners – winners from the front row will receive $75, while winners from outside the front row will pick up $125 for their efforts. Any unclaimed bonus bucks will be awarded to the first non-qualified car.

The 600cc Micro Sprint point battle is tight with just 110 points separating the top five competitors. Tyler Walton leads the standings, with Aaron Spar, Heath Hehnly, Jason Sechrist, and Kyle Lick rounding out the top five. The winner of the point standings – as well as a random driver that has participated in all of the #PartyAtThePath events – will receive a test session aboard an RBR Racing 410 Sprint Car.

Hoosier Racing Tire has offered up free right rear tires to competitors in both the 410 Sprint Car and 600 Micro Sprint division. 410 drivers will be awarded right rear tires in a random drawing based on the suggestions of fans in attendance.

Greg Hodnett & Chase Dietz Are Williams Grove Speedway 2015 Sprint Champions

Apecial Awards Announced As Season Ends

10/11/15

Mechanicsburg – With a run in the annual World of Outlaws Champion Racing Oil National Open, Thomasville’s Greg Hodnett recently wrapped up his fourth career Williams Grove Speedway Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint car track title.

Hodnett’s track crown is his second in a row for No. 27 car owner Mike Heffner of Hellertown as well as the second of Heffner’s car ownership career at Williams Grove.

The soft-spoken pilot notched four Williams Grove victories in 2015 on his way to the $20,000 track title.

With the 2015 laurels, Hodnett has now recorded four of the last six titles up for grabs at the track having also won for Jim and Sandy Kline in 2010 and for John Trone in 2012.

Hodnett is also the 2015 Williams Grove Speedway Diamond Series titlist, a title earned from average points accumulated in select special events held at Williams Grove throughout the season.

The Diamond title is the sixth of Hodnett’s profitable career at the track, having also taken title rights in 2003, 2007, 2010, 2012 and 2014.

As Hodnett’s crew chief, Ryan Hand was voted awarded Mechanic of the Year laurels for the 2015 season.

Other special awards to be distributed in the 410 sprint class for 2015 performances include Rookie of the Year honors going to Freddie Rahmer, Most Improved won by Rodney Westhafer and Sportsmanship earned by veteran Troy Fraker.

York’s Chase Dietz recently scored the 2015 HJ Towing & Recovery 358 sprint title at Williams Grove Speedway.

It is a career first track title for Dietz who notched four wins as well on his run to the track crown.

Dietz spent part of the season testing the waters in the 410 sprint division while still maintaining a focus on his 358 sprint efforts aboard a car owned by Troy Godfrey.

While Dietz’s 2015 performances not only earned him the Williams Grove division track title, his conduct and efforts served him well elsewhere in addition.

Dietz also earned the honors of 2015 Sportsman of the Year and Rookie of the Year.

Doug Hammaker was awarded Most Improved.

Miller Caps His Port Royal Season With Blue Collar RaceSaver Win & Track Title

Stock cars to Myers, Shoop and Brenize

10/4/15

Port Royal – Some 120 race cars packed the Port Royal Speedway pit area Saturday night to contest the 4th annual Blue Collar Classic including the Keystone RaceSaver Challenge for 305 sprint cars.

Huntingdon’s Jeff Miller put an exclamation mark on his 2015 season at the track by claiming the 25-lap Keystone RaceSaver Challenge while also taking the season point title at the oval for the 305 sprint cars.

DJ Myers scored the 20-lap limited late model main over a stellar field of limiteds while Andrew Shoop scored the xtreme stock feature event and Wayne Brenize won the four cylinder feature.

The Founder’s Cup non-qualifiers race for the 305 sprints was taken by Jordan Thomas.

The 2013 event champion, Mifflintown’s Jake Waters led the first four laps of the Keystone RaceSaver Challenge for the 305 sprints before Orwigsburg’s Tyler Reeser took over in an effort to record his second win of the season at the track.

Point leader Jeff Miller started third in the field and took second from Waters on the eighth tour to begin driving down the distance Reeser had opened up.

The leaders entered the rear of the field with 15 laps to go and Miller then made his first bid for control.

He drove around Reeser for the lead in the first corner but Reeser used the outside to reclaim the spot as the pair raced down the backchute.

And just after the pair completed the 11th loop, a caution flag bunched the field and slowed the pace.

Another caution regrouped the field just a lap later and again with 11 laps to go but on all the restarts Reeser was able to get away from Miller.

While Miller’s advances seemed to stabilized during those mid-stage laps, they picked back up again during the last seven laps as he began cutting into Reeser’s lead.

And then with four laps to go Miller motored around Reeser for the lead and win, which was the sixth of his career at the track.

It was his first win in the marquee event for the division held at the oval and in Pennsylvania each year since beginning in 2012.

Reeser settled for second followed by 11th starter Dave Brown Jr. of Aston, Waters and Tim Tanner of Doylestown.

Sixth through 10th went to Scott Frack, Erin Statler, Nathan Gramley, Derrick Bowersox and Colby Dice.

Six heats for the 49 cars in action went to Brown Jr., Waters, Joe Kay, Miller, Statler and Reeser,

Twin consolation races went to Gramley and Scott Ellerman.

Overall fast time was set by Karl Freyer with a lap of 18.393 seconds.

Ryan Stillwaggon led the first six laps of the 15-lap Founder’s Cup non-qualifiers race for the 305 sprints before Harding’s Jordan Thomas took over for the win, earning himself a guaranteed starting spot in next year’s main event.

John Martin rode home second followed by Stillwaggon, Dalton Hetrick and George Riden.

Travis Stickley led only the first three laps of the limited late model main before fourth starter DJ Myers took over to begin driving away from the field.

After starting eighth, Rick Singleton worked his way through the field to pull into second with nine laps left in the 20-lapper.

Singleton did run down the better part of Myer’s advantage before the finish but Myers still took the victory by 1.992 seconds.

Kyle Lee was third followed by Rance Garlock and Stickley.

Heats for the 34-car field went to Singleton, Randy Christine Jr., Troy Miller and Lee with the consolation going to Jake Jones.

Multiple caution flags hampered the pace in the 20-lap xtreme stock feature but at the helm the entire way was Andrew Shoop who started fourth.

Shoop was chased nearly the entire way by 2015 Port Royal champion Jason Zook but although Zook was able to pull alongside at one point for control, he was never able to fully get command.

Shoop was followed across the line by Zook, Bob Bussey, Walt Peters and Keith Bissinger.

Twin heats went to Jason Davis and Corey Kepner.

Wayne Brenize won the 15-lap four cylinder main event over Lee Zook, Eric Boozel, Jeff Foster and Tim Osheehan.

Twin heats went to Ryan Peer and Jeff Foster.

“It came down to the very last race,” said McIntyre upon exiting his family Weaver’s Body Shop/NAPA Auto Parts/William McIntyre & Sons #16 in victory lane, “It’s been such a long year. To be standing here…I can’t thank all these guys enough for hanging with me. And hopefully this will give us a boost in the off-season and get things back going for next year. At least I know we’re competitive.”

Polesitter Mike Bittinger led the first 13 laps before J.J. Grasso took the lead. But in the process, Grasso damaged the front wing of his sprinter, which finally fell off entering turn one of lap 20.

When the caution came out, fourth-starting McIntyre pulled onto his back bumper. McIntyre pulled alongside Grasso several times during the caution, and made the race-winning pass on the restart.

“I was going around him anyway,” quipped McIntyre when asked chasing the Grasso #37, “I didn’t wat to take any chances. I knew I was the better car there at the end. He was fast and got around me when I was screwing around at the beginning. Everything went our way tonight. I drew a #1 pill for the heats and drew the #1 pill for the Manufacturer’s prize package. We’ll be back at Lincoln next year.”

Tenth-starting Greg Hodnett took the runner-up spot from Grasso on the next-to-last lap, but crossed 2.25 seconds behind McIntyre, with Grasso hanging on for third. Ninth-starting Adam Wilt and Tyler Ross completed the top five, with Aaron Ott, 18th-startng Alan Krimes, Bittinger, Steve Owings, and Jim Siegel rounding out the top ten.

Heats for the 35 410’s were won by McIntyre, Kyle Moody, Grasso, and Hodnett, with Cory Haas winning the consolation despite a 360-degree spin in the middle of the event.

Carlisle’s Doug Hammaker added an exclamation point to his Central PA point series and Lincoln Speedway championships by scoring the win in the 20-lap “358” sprint car feature.

Hammaker started third and caught polesitter and race leader Brie Hershey on lap five. He held off the late-race challenges of 15th-starting Adrian Shaffer to claim his third win of the season in the Pigeon Hills. Just like McIntyre, it was his fourth career Lincoln win, and came by 1.75 seconds over Shaffer.

Third through fifth were Hershey, Matt Campbell (who came from the rear following a fourth turn spin on lap four), and Kyle Denmyer.

Heats for the 26 358’s were won by Cole Young, Denmyer, and Phil Walter, with Tyler Walton setting a new 5-lap track record in winning the consolation with a time of 1 minute, 19.25 seconds.

Kurt Zimmerman polished off a series championship season by becoming the fourth and final leader of the 20-lap All-American Outlaw feature. Zimmerman came from ninth starting spot to grab the lead from Bryan Green during a four-car battle for the lead on lap nine.

He led the rest of the way, with Randy Doty coming from 11th starting spot to finish second. Third through fifth were Justin Cullum, Hunter Nester, and Green.

The All-American Outlaw feature ended the 2015 Lincoln racing season, with annual Lincoln Race Car Flea Market coming up on Saturday, November 14th (6 a.m. to noon), followed by the 2015 Lincoln Speedway Awards Banquet on Saturday, November 21st (6 PM-12:30 AM)

2015 National Open Kick-It Tournament Highlights

With grit, determination and generous support of hundreds of race fans, drivers, sponsors, and many others, the 2015 National Open Kick-It Tournament was a resounding success. Despite Mother Nature forcing some last minute changes, playing indoors at the Yellow Breeches Sports Center went very smoothly. We are all extremely grateful for the hard work and effort everyone has put in to raise nearly $14,000 for Kick-It! Over the past four years the National Open Kick-It Tournament, along with the help of Jeff Gordon, has sent over $150,000 to Children's Cancer research. It's an incredible feat that everyone in the racing community should be proud of.
Coming from Ohio, survivor Kevin Morrison and his family were extremely grateful to be able to participate and be a part of something so important to their family. It leaves a lasting impression for everyone why this event is so special, not only to Kevin but all the children fighting cancer everyday.
Our Kick-It games had a record number of businesses support our efforts for Kick-It. A very big thank you goes out to each of these fine sponsors: Bob Hilbert Sportswear, Pennsy Supply, BDB Graphics, Berks Foods, Fastener Specialties, Gulliftys, Hoseheads.com, Penn Werner Hotel, Williams Grove Speedway, Crown Trophy, CJB Motorsports, Stevie Smith Racing, Servicemaster, Five Guys Burgers and Fries, Steam Into History, Jakes Wayback Burgers, PAPosseracing.com, River and Trail Outfitters, Comfortably Numb Tattoo Studio, Subway, Frito Lay, Martins Potato Chips, Hickory Falls of Hanover, Susquehanna Speedway Park, Ryan Taylor Graphics, Karn's Food, BathFitter, Brock Zearfoss, Danny Dietrich, Colbey Frye and Adrian Shaffer, Fieldhouse Inn, Melvyn Record of Mazda Raceway, Leach's Automotive Service, Wal-Mart of Mechanicsburg #1886. Without them we could not have put together such a successful fundraiser.
We would also like to congratulate the Kick-It and Split team for being crowned 2015 National Open Kick-It Tournament Champions with a close 1-0 win over the NSCBBA Brew Crew. It was well earned. Also, congrats to the Pennsy Supply Kick-It Krew for once again raising the largest amount of donations for Kick-It with over $3600 in donations. Dave Palmer and Mike Sis both raised over $1,000 each! Not to be out done, the Beerhill Gang also raised nearly $2,000. We would also like to thank the NSCBBA Brew Crew and The Ballarians each for raising over $1,600 per each team. A number of teams once again held fundraisers that not only helped to raise money but also promoted awareness for Kick-It.
We sincerely hope all those that came out and participated had as great of a time as we did putting it on. While the rain forced us to move the event indoors at the last minute, it also made for a new setting and created a twist to the tournament format. To bring local and national drivers, crew members, fans, and many others together to have fun and donate to Kick-It is something special we can all be proud of and continue to support for many years to come.
And the National Open Kick-It is not done yet. While Jason and Julie Bly plan remove themselves from coordinating the event, there are already new supporters ready to step up and spear head efforts and inject new ideas for next year's event. Jason and Julie plan to offer support and help in anyway they can to be sure that everyone has a fun and successful event next year. Plans are already underway to make things better and more exciting for everyone involved for the 2016 National Open Kick-It Tournament. We hope you will join us in the fight against childhood cancers. More information will be provided in the months to come on how you too can be a part of the next event.

FROM WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY

STEVIE SMITH WINS RAIN-DELAYED CHAMPION RACING OIL WILLIAMS GROVE NATIONAL OPEN

Pennsylvania native scores third career triumph in prestigious event, taking $50,000 ahead of outlaw Schatz

MECHANICSBURG, PA – The sun was finally out at Williams Grove Speedway, and after three days of rain, the Champion Racing Oil Williams Grove National Open was completed Sunday night with Stevie Smith earning the $50,000 win.

It was Smith’s third win in the event, but first since 1991.

Smith nearly had his third National Open win last year, but contact from eventual winner David Gravel ended his chances.

Smith, of Broken Arrow, Okla., has been dominate in his appearances at Williams Grove this season and dominated again for his third win in the event and a $50,000 payday.

“It’s amazing,” said Smith. “Twenty-four years later here we are. This all goes to Fred Rahmer and the crew. They have given me a really good racecar. I tried not to make too many mistakes. They’ve done a really good job and they’re the reason we’re standing out here.”

Two years ago, Smith’s car owner Fred Rahmer won the National Open in his final attempt before becoming a car owner.

“I’ve never won a $50,000 to win race,” said Smith. “I wanted to win it since Fred won it and I wanted to win it for Fred and I wanted to win it for me and Nikki, too. It has been a really good year and this just tops it off.”

For Rahmer, it was career win No. 100 at Williams Grove between driving and owning cars.

“It’s absolutely unbelievable,” said Rahmer. “The money’s great, but to win this race and have Donny Schatz second…. what a great job the guys did. When Donny was behind us, I didn’t have to worry like I did last year or we’d probably have three of these in a row.”

Danny Dietrich led the field to the green flag in the 40-lap Champion Racing Oil National Open. Smith fell into second and raced in Dietrich’s shadow over the opening laps.

The leaders reached lapped traffic with eight laps down. Smith was glued to Dietrich’s bumper as they raced down the frontstretch and into turn one. Smith would get by Dietrich for the lead off turn two. They swapped the lead in turns three and four, but Smith secured control off turn four to complete lap nine. Dietrich tried another slider in turns one and two, but wasn’t close enough to make the pass.

They raced in heavy lapped traffic and Smith was able to pull away slightly. Donny Schatz was back up to fifth by lap 15.

Smith made a two-car pass off turn four to get more breathing room between himself and Dietrich. Logan Schuchart was challenging Dietrich for the runner-up spot when Dietrich made contact with the lapped car of Austin Hogue in turn three. Dietrich did a 360-spin and kept going, but lost several spots, and the caution flag didn’t come out.

Schatz was now up to third and drove by Schuchart off turn two and into second. He was 2.88 seconds and three lapped cars behind Smith.

The first caution flag didn’t fly until nine laps to go when Lucas Wolfe slowed on the backstretch with a flat tire. This erased Smith’s 2.11 second lead.

Smith was able to pull away from Schatz over the next two laps, but the caution flew again as Brent Marks and Greg Hodnett slowed after their bumpers got hooked together on the backstretch. They were running eighth and ninth. This turned into an open red flag period.

Smith took the inside lane for the double-file restart giving Schatz the top. Smith went to the middle in turn one and would secure the lead from Schatz.

“I know he’s the best driver in the nation,” said Smith of Schatz. “I just drive my race. I look forward and try not to worry about whose beside me or behind me. I knew Donny was going to be tough. I ran the pace as hard as my car would let me. I eased up a little the last couple of laps knowing I needed to stay down. You don’t want to give them away, but you have to watch that you don’t get running too easy.”

Hogue hit the outside fourth turn fence and then flipped coming down the frontstretch bringing out the red flag again. Under Outlaws rules, the restart was now single-file because one more lap wasn’t completed.

Smith controlled the final laps to secure the win over Schatz, who did close over the final lap, but was 0.513 seconds behind Smith at the finish. Logan Schuchart, Justin Henderson and 12th starter Brian Montieth completed the top five.

“I did everything I could,” said Schatz. “Stevie was really good. He made all the lines on the racetrack work for him. We got ourselves buried at the beginning. We had to pass them back one by one without traffic. We got going there about the lap 20 mark, but it was almost too late. These guys gave me an awesome car.”

Dietrich, Alan Krimes, Daryn Pittman, Lance Dewease and Cory Haas rounded out the top 10.

The 49-car field was split into two groups for qualifying time trials. Stevie Smith set overall fast time with a lap of 18.461 seconds. Brian Montieth had fast time in the second group at 18.490. The one-day purse was over $130,000.

Ryan Taylor, Daryn Pittman, Brent Marks, Donny Schatz, Lance Dewease and Greg Hodnett won the eight-lap heat races. Kerry Madsen won the D-main, Aaron Ott won the C-main, Danny Dietrich the dash and Brian Montieth the B-main.

Joey Saldana and Kerry Madsen used Outlaw provisionals and Aaron Ott and Austin Hogue used track provisionals.

TAKE A KID TO A CAR SHOW TRUCK TO GRACE RACING XTRAVAGANGA

By Brad Vores for Racing Xtravaganza

Once a former competitive truck on the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series tour, the Take a Kid to a Car Show truck will be on display at the Racing Xtravaganza show.

Racing Xtravanganza will be held on Saturday and Sunday, February 6 and 7, 2016 at the UTZ Arena on the York Fairgrounds.

Raced two times during a two-year span, the truck was retired and spent some time inside a barn for storage. The truck was purchased by Chuck Ritzman who then decided to build it as a vehicle he could take to car shows for kids and adults to get an up close look at an actual truck that raced in the actual series.

The Take a Kid to a Car Show truck is a Laughlin Chassis with a Chevy V8, 4 speed transmission.

Ritzman teamed with Take a Kid to a Car Show, which urges adults to get out and take children to car shows. Smaller kids are allowed to sit in the truck during shows.

Stop by and visit the Take a Kid to a Car Show truck and take home some stickers as well during the upcoming Racing Xtravangza show, which is just over four months away!

Fans can check out www.racingxtravaganza.com for the latest for your Prescription for Racing Xcitement!

 

 

Survivor Kevin Morrison from Ohio to play in National Open Kick-It Tournament
By: Jason Bly
This year’s Kick-It Tournament is again shaping up to be a memorable one. The Fast Tees kickball team will have a very special player on their roster this year. 10 year old Kevin Morrison from Ohio, will be ready to receive the first roll of the tournament. Due to chemotherapy treatments Kevin was too weak last year to play but is very excited to be part of this year's event.
Kevin was diagnosed with T-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in the summer of 2014, at the age of 14. Kevin is not the only child in the family who has been diagnosed with leukemia. His step-father's oldest granddaughter, Eleanor Gordon, was diagnosed with B-Cell ALL in early 2012. She completed her chemotherapy in May of 2014, just two months before Kevin started his treatment. Sadly, Eleanor relapsed on August 25, 2015 and passed away only three weeks later. She was 10 years old.
Kevin is now a 15 year-old “straight-A” Freshman at Milford High School, in Milford, Ohio. He helps the coaches for the Milford High School football teams and plays lacrosse. He is expected to complete his chemotherapy in November, 2017. Kevin is an Honored Hero for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society this year. Kevin will be joined in this journey and special day at the field by his mother Bbie Johnson and step father Master Sergeant D. Keith Johnson of the U.S. Army Reserves. The Fast Tees team, as well as all of the participants and patrons of the National Open Kick-It Tournament, are extremely honored to have Kevin and his family a part of this event. It certainly brings home to everyone involved with this event just how important these events are to all children battling cancer.

National Open Kick-It Tournament still on for Friday Oct. 2nd
Moves to Yellow Breeches Sports Center in New Cumberland!
By: Jason Bly
Due to the likely hood of heavy rains putting a serious damper on all of our weekend racing and event plans the 2015 National Open Kick-It Tournament will move to an indoor facility. The tournament is now scheduled to be played at the Yellow Breeches Sports Center at 700 Shawnee Ct., in New Cumberland, PA. Thanks to the staff at Yellow Breeches for coming through for and us opening their facilities early to let us set up and play some kick ball while raising money for the Kick-It Foundation.
There will be some changes to allow us to complete the event on time at the new facility. We will be using three indoor 180' x 80' soccer fields to play. These will certainly not be regulation fields but they will be large enough for us to hold the games. The fields will be narrower than what we are all used to, therefore we will only be allowing 2 outfielders to play at all times. This will give teams a total of 8 fielders on defense. All games will be complete after 5 innings. If there is a tie after 5 innings, the team that scored first will be declared the winner. We know this isn't ideal but it is to ensure we keep the tournament moving and being completed as soon as possible.
Since we only have 3 fields to use we will play the first 3 games of round 1, followed by the next 3 scheduled, and then the final two. While the last two games of round one are being played, we will play the first scheduled game of round two, followed by the last three games of round 2. Once they have been completed we will hold both games of round 3 and then the final round 4 event. Fields will be available for pickup games after the final second round games has been completed.
With this being an indoor tournament, we are discouraging all players from kicking the ball against the ceiling or any of the overhead lights to prevent any damage to the facility. We know this is kickball and kicks don't always go as planned. If this happens, it will be counted as an out towards the kicking team to provide extra incentive to keep the balls down low. We will still be following the WAKA regulations for the remaining rules.
To keep the event moving along, be sure to have your teams prepared for their game(s).
Registration will begin the day of the event NO EARLIER than 11:30 a.m. and will stop when the first game begins just after 12 p.m. To help speed up the registration process by printing and signing the registration form before you come to the event.

PARTY AT THE PATH 2015 SEASON CONCLUDES WITH ARMED FORCES APPRECIATION NIGHT – OFFERING HALF-PRICED TICKETS TO MILITARY MEMBERS

410 Sprint Cars Compete for $6,600 jackpot in 40 lap event, 600cc Micro Sprint Championship To Be Determined

SPRING RUN, Pa. (September 27, 2015) – Just a few weeks remain before Sunday, October 18 and this season’s final installment of Fred Rahmer Promotions’ events at Path Valley Speedway. The 410 Sprint Cars and 600cc Micro Sprints headline Rahmer’s Armed Forces Appreciation Night – offering half-priced general admission tickets to U.S. Military personnel in uniform.

Active and retired members of the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, Coast Guard and National Guard are invited to attend as the Fastest Cars on Dirt salute them with intense side-by-side wheel-banging Sprint Car Racing on the Path Valley ¼ mile bullring.

The area’s top 410 Sprint Car competitors will compete in a 40 lap event that pays $6,600 to win – in a tribute to the late Harry Fletcher, a long-time Sprint Car owner and dear friend of the Rahmer family. Fletcher’s No. 66 was a staple of the central Pennsylvania Sprint Car scene throughout the 60’s and 70’s.

Like the past 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 the 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-Qualifers 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 previous events, Chandler Leiby earned $1,100 for his Non-Qualifiers win, TJ Stutts earned $1,400 for his efforts, and Bradley Howard earned $1,700 for his Non-Qualifiers victory.

Other bonuses include a $500 Invader Bonus to any non-central Pennsylvania regular, a $500 Quick Time bonus to the driver setting the fastest Time Trial lap, as well as Hard Charger and Hard Luck awards.

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 competitors based on a random drawing.

26-year-old Mifflintown, Pa native Tyler Walton is easily the favorite leading into the 600cc Micro Sprint portion of the Sunday, October 18 event. Walton has gone 3 for 3 in the past Fred Rahmer Promotions events and currently leads the point standings with a 55 point advantage over Aaron Spar.

Williams Grove World Of Outlaws 53rd Annual Champion Racing Oil National Open This Week Has Storied & Historic Past

Saturday Open pays $50,000 to win!

9/27/15

Mechanicsburg – Sprint car fans in the East will gather this Saturday night to see the 53rd running of the Williams Grove Speedway Champion Racing Oil National Open for sprint cars sanctioned by the World of Outlaws, going 40-laps in distance and paying $50,000 to the winner.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Schatz was again the winner in 2007.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Saturdays National Open action begins at 6:30 pm.

Admission prices for Saturday’s National Open are $35 for adults and $20 for youth.

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

SECOND ANNUAL “DIRT CLASSIC”

UPCOMING EVENTS:

Sat, Oct 3 - NO RACING

Sat, Oct 10- (6 PM) Annual Hank Gentzler Memorial Manufacturers Appreciation Night (410 sprints & 358 sprints)

MONTIETH HOLDS OFF SMITH IN LINCOLN “DIRT CLASSIC” THRILLER;

Caps off fifth track championship with $20,000 win; Manufacturers Night season finale in two weeks

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 9/26/2015 –Brian Montieth showed the huge crowd why is the track champ by claiming the $20,000 top prize in the Second Annual “Dirt Classic” at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

After exchanging numerous slide jobs over the final few laps, Montieth held off inaugural “Dirt Classic” winner Stevie Smith to score a milestone 50th career Lincoln win.

And although it got down to Montieth and Smith at the end, it was Montieth’s double-pass of third-place Jac Haudenschild and second-place Brent Marks that was key to the win.

“Stevie was up there just trying not to make a mistake and trying to keep his speed,” said Montieth upon exiting the Jerry Parrish-owned Auto Locator/Premier Auto Works #21 in victory lane, “That restart when I got from fourth to second was the kicker for me. The car started to go and I got off my butt I guess.”

Smith started on the pole as high point man after time trials and two sets of qualifying events, but spotted the lead to outside front row starter Brent Marks for the first 11 laps.

Smith then pulled the slider on Marks to grab the lead in turn four of lap 12, and led through lap 26.

Montieth, who started third, ran fourth behind fourth-starting Haudenschild the first half of the race. It was after a 21st lap restart that Montieth passed both Haudenschild and Marks to move into the runner-up spot. At the time, Smith’s lead was nearly two seconds.

“It was follow the leader and I saw Greg trying to make a move when I was trying to make moves, and this place is tough in lapped traffic…especially when it’s just one lane around the top. The only time the bottom worked was on those restarts when everybody was slowed down.”

Montieth tracked down the leader over the next five laps and caught Smith on the backstretch of lap 27. Although Smith stayed close the rest of the way and actually slid in front of Montieth in heavy lapped traffic late in the race, Montieth was scored the leader of every lap.

“Once I saw Stevie, I got back on the wheel again, said Montieth, “If I made a mistake, it was on me…but I knew Stevie was going to be tough and I just tried to make the track as wide as I could there at the end.”

“I can’t say enough about this team. We haven’t had a real good run in the last few months, and I’m just happy for this team right now,” said Montieth.

Smith settled for second, with Marks third and Haudenschild fourth. Danny Dietrich, who flipped in his first heat, came from 17th starting spot to cross fifth, with Greg Hodnett running fifth the entire race until Dietrich caught him in the final few laps. Seventh through tenth were Lucas Wolfe, Aaron Ott, Gerard McIntyre, Jr., and B Main winner and 21st starting Dave Blaney.

Fast time in time trials over the 41-car field was set by Jac Haudenschild with a one-lap time of 13.090-seconds (103.132 MPH).

Two rounds of heats were won by Wolfe, Smith, Krimes, Marks, Tim Glatfelter, Billy Dietrich, Cory Haas, JJ Grasso, and Blaney.

Next Saturday night, Lincoln will be dark to allow its drivers to compete in the Williams Grove National Open.

Lincoln returns to action for its season finale on Saturday, October 10th. It will be the annual Hank Gentzler Memorial Manufacturers Appreciation Night featuring the 410 and 358 sprint cars.

Gates for that show open at 4:00 p.m. with the first qualifier scheduled for 6:00 p.m.

STEVIE SMITH WINS WILLIAMS GROVE NATIONAL OPEN TUNE-UP

College freshman Chase Dietz wins 358 sprint feature and track championship

MECHANICSBURG, PA – Stevie Smith will be looking for a little redemption when the Williams Grove Speedway National Open rolls around next Saturday. Smith was leading late in the race last year when contact from eventual winner David Gravel took him out of contention.

Smith, of Broken Arrow, Okla., tuned up for that race with a win Friday night at the Grove. His fifth Grove win in 11 starts this season was worth $4,000 in a car owned by Hall of Fame driver Fred Rahmer.

In the 20-lap main event for the 358 sprints, Chase Dietz won the feature and clinched the track championship.

The three-day World of Outlaws-sanctioned Champion Racing Oil National Open begins Thursday with a $10,000 to win show. Friday’s race also pays $10,000 to win with the $50,000 to win National Open Saturday night, Oct. 3.

“All the guys behind me are running good and fast,” said Smith. “I run every lap as hard as I can and the best I can and hope at the end of the night this is where we end up, but it doesn’t always work out that way. We really want to win the National Open. It’s one of our goals. It has been my goal for a long time since the last time I did it.”

Brent Marks and Lucas Wolfe shared the front row to start the 25-lap main event. They swapped the top spot in turns one and two before Marks secured the lead.

Danny Dietrich and third starter Smith raced hard for third. Smith would get the spot with six laps down and then take second from Wolfe a few laps later.

The first caution flag flew with nine laps completed when Aaron Ott stopped. Marks picked the low side for the double-file restart.

Marks got the jump on the restart. Smith put a slider on him in turn on and momentarily took the lead, but Marks turned back under him to retake it off the corner. They were close racing into turn three and Smith would secure the lead as they completed lap 10.

“We’re set up for the end of the race,” said Smith. “Actually, it felt pretty good right from the beginning. I figured about half-way, if things go as planned, we’d have a good chance. The last few nights we haven’t been very good so they put a new car together. It feels like the old times.”

Jac Haudenschild and Brian Montieth spun in turn two bringing out the caution with 14 laps completed.

Smith pulled away on the restart as Dietrich would get by Marks for second. Sammy Swindell briefly challenged Marks for third, but couldn’t make the pass.

Smith controlled the final non-stop 11 laps to pick up his fifth Grove win of the season by 0.962 seconds over Dietrich, Marks, Swindell and Wolfe. Lawrence Chevrolet point leader Greg Hodnett, Lance Dewease, Alan Krimes, J.J. Grasso and Austin Hogue rounded out the top 10.

Hodnett set fast time over the 24-car field with a lap of 16.640. Dewease, Haudenschild and Wolfe won the heat races. Wolfe also won the dash.

Kevin Nouse was holding back Dietz as they raced under the white flag in the 358 sprint feature. Nouse went low into turn one and Dietz went around the cushion. Jared Esh spun in turn two and collected Nouse bringing out the caution.

Dietz controlled the final lap to the get the win in the Godfrey No. 5 over second place point man Doug Hammaker, early leader Chandler Leiby, Adrian Shaffer and Eric Parker. Dietz was also named the Rookie-of-the-Year and received the Jerry Reigle Sportsmanship Award.

H&J Towing and Recovery will return as the major sponsor for the 358 sprint car division in 2016. This year’s champion earned $1,500 out of a total point fund of over $6,000. The runner-up earned $1,100. The top 10 in final points were paid.

Dietz donated his winnings from the night and the point fund to a friend of the family that’s battling cancer. He donated over $10,000 this season to various charities.

Scott Fisher, Esh and Dietz won the 358 heat races.

Williams Grove National Open Kick-It Tournament

We all know how competitive the PA Posse drivers are on the track against each other and especially outside invaders like the World of Outlaws. It’s not so surprising that PA Posse fans are the same way! In order to create consistency and fairness to all players and umpires the Williams Grove National Open Kick-It Tournament will again be using World Adult Kickball Association (WAKA) rules. If you are playing, be sure to study the WAKA rules before your come to the event. An important exception to the WAKA rule book is in the event of a tie game. All games are scheduled to go 5 innings. Any games tied after the 5th inning will have one addition fielder removed from field for each team of each inning until the game is over. This helps keep games moving along in a timely manner to allow us to get through all four rounds of games.
The WAKA rules are simple to review and understand. Some notable changes and rules for teams to keep in mind include: The official strike zone, the “Kicker’s Box”, no base stealing or leading off bases, each team is to have one captain and one co-captain, the pitcher must start the roll with their foot on or behind the pitchers rubber, calling strikes and balls, and four foul balls results in an out. We will have at least four volunteer umpires. They are not trained professionals but will do their best to ensure everyone has fun and plays as fair as possible. Their calls are final and can only have plays disputed by the team’s captains and co-captains. For more information and to see the official rules please visit http://www.kickball.com/files/KICKBALL_OFFICIAL_RULES_2012.pdf.
Registration the morning of October 3rd will begin NO EARLIER than 11:30 a.m. and will stop when the first game begins around 12:15 pm. You can speed through registration by printing and signing the registration form and hand in to pre-registration area when you come.

Hodnett Takes Checkers over Haudenschild at at SSP on Sunday Night

Next Test & Tune on Wednesday, September 30

Newberrytown, PA (September 20, 2015) – Greg Hodnett of Thomasville took his second consecutive 410 Sprint Car feature race in the Sunday Night Sprint Car Special at the Susquehanna Speedway Park. Orwigsburg’s Tyler Reeser collected the IMCA PA Sprint20-lap feature race at the end of the night.

By virtue of a number one pill inversion, the two heat race winners Jac Haudenschild and Lance Dewease brought the field to the green. Haudenschild grabbed the early lead over Hodnett with Lance Dewease close behind in third. Almost midway through the non-stop feature, Hodenett drove by Haudenschild on the bottom to take the lead. Haudenschild tried to regain the lead but was unable to make the winning pass as Hodnett went on to take the victory in 7 minutes and 1.09 seconds. Haudenschild settled for second followed by Austin Hogue in third. Chase Dietz finished fourth with Glenndon Forsythe finishing fifth.

In the 20-lap IMCA PA Sprint Car feature, Tyler Reeser started on the outside of the front row and took the lead and began to set a blistering pace with Darren Miller Jay Krout trying to chase him down. The only thing that slowed down was two caution flags as he went on to take the win over Miller. Jaremi Hanson finished third as Tyler Lebo crossed the line in fourth. Krout rounded out the top five at the end. Miller and Zach Newlin were the heat race winners.

The Susquehanna Showdown for the Late Models and Sportsman Modifieds scheduled for Saturday, September 26 has been cancelled and will not be rescheduled.

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY

 19 September 2015

DIETRICH WIRES FIELD FOR FIRST SELINSGROVE SPRINT CAR WIN IN JIM NACE MEMORIAL 33rd ANNUAL NATIONAL OPEN

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Danny Dietrich of Gettysburg wired the field for his first-ever win at Selinsgrove Speedway in Saturday night’s Jim Nace Memorial 33rd Annual National Open for 410 sprint cars sponsored by Paul Stine Chevrolet.

The $10,000 victory at the wheel of the Kauffman Racing/ Sandoe’s Fruit Market No. 48 was Dietrich’s 15th overall win in sprint car racing this season.

Brock Zearfoss of Jonestown was the Fast Tees Fast Qualifier with a lap time of 16.554.

Dylan Yoder of Selinsgrove won his first race of the season at Selinsgrove and fourth overall this year in the 25-lap super late model main event.

Saturday night’s race closed out the 2015 racing season at the 70-year-old facility and marked the end of Charlie Paige’s 15-year term as track promoter. The Selinsgrove Fair Association, which governs the speedway, is working on a succession plan for racing to continue in 2016.

Dietrich started on the pole and powered into the lead in the sprint car main event with second-place starter Lucas Wolfe and third-place starter Greg Hodnett in pursuit. On the ninth circuit, Hodnett drove by Wolfe for the runner-up spot racing out of turn four.

The race’s first caution flag unfurled on lap 12 when Aaron Ott’s car blew a tire on the frontstretch. Ott did a remarkable job keeping the car from making contact with the guardrail and was able to rejoin the race.

On the lap 13 restart, Dietrich continued to set a blistering pace with Hodnett clearing the lapped cars and setting his sights on the leader. On the 16th lap, fourth-place starter TJ Stutts started to show a lot of speed and passed Wolfe for the third position.

Ott, meanwhile, stormed into the ninth position after restarting on the rear of the field. On lap 18, however, misfortune struck the East Berlin driver again when his car slammed the inside wall and was struck by Michael Walter’s car. Both drivers escaped injury.

With 15 laps to race, Stutts started to pressure Hodnett for the second position. In the final five laps, Dietrich encountered and navigated his way around slower traffic. Stutts made a last-ditch effort at Hodnett for second to no avail. At the checkered flag, Dietrich was victorious by 2.7 seconds over Hodnett, Stutts, seventh-place starter Brent Marks, and Wolfe.

Polesitter Dylan Yoder pulled into the lead at the start of the late model main event while second-place starter Pancho Lawler held down the runner-up position for several laps. With three laps down, fourth-place starter Jim Yoder and fifth-place starter Jeff Rine dueled for the third position.

On the seventh circuit, Rine took the third spot then advanced to second with a pass by Lawler out of turn four. A lap later, J. Yoder secured the third spot. The second half of the race D. Yoder dueled with Rine for the lead. Both drivers streaked around the top of the race track in the first and second spots.

Despite several restarts, D. Yoder maintained an edge over Rine to the finish. At the checkered flag, D. Yoder was victorious by 1.2 seconds over Rine, Andy Haus, J. Yoder, and Chad Hollenbeck.

53rd Williams Grove Speedway National Open Format Revealed, National Open Rookie To Receive $1,000

9/20/15

Mechanicsburg – The upcoming Williams Grove Speedway 53rd annual Champion Racing Oil National Open sanctioned by the World of Outlaws sprint cars has been expanded to a three-day format this season.

The prestigious race is set for October 1, 2 and 3 at the historic Cumberland County oval.

Saturday’s 40-lap Open will pay a whopping $50,000 to win with both the Thursday and Friday night shows offering $10,000 to win, 25-lap features.

And what happens on both Thursday and Friday will set the stage for drivers to compete in the Saturday National Open.

National Open event points will be awarded for final position in time trials, heat races, C main, Last Chance Showdown and the feature, on both preliminary nights.

The new points system will reward drivers for consistency throughout the event and is ultimately used to determine the lineups on the final night of the National Open.

The time trial leader is awarded 200 points with each subsequent position receiving two fewer points than the last; Heat race winners receive 100 points with each subsequent position receiving three fewer points than the last; the C main awards 94 points to the third place finisher with the top-two transferring into the Last Chance Showdown and each subsequent position after third receiving four fewer points than the last; the third place finisher in the Last Chance Showdown receives 150 points with each subsequent position receiving four fewer points; and the A main winner receives 250 points with each subsequent car receiving four fewer points than the last.

The Heat race lineups will be straight up utilizing combined event points. Heat race finishes on the final night will be awarded points and added to the combined event points. The Dash will be made up of the Heat race winners, the four highest combined event point leaders and the top one or two in event points that did not win their Heat but did make the transfer. The overall Dash lineup will be determined by combined event points.

Each of the rest of the races will be lined up by total combined event points with the Dash field setting the first 10 positions in the feature and the Last Chance Showdown transfers tagging the back of the A main. Four maximum provisionals can be utilized on each race night (two for World of Outlaws platinum teams and two for Williams Grove Speedway regulars).

In other National Open news, it was announced on September 18 that a minimum of $1,000 will be awarded to the 2015 National Open Rookie of the Year in the event.

Sponsored by The Beer Hill Gang, the highest finishing rookie in the overall event on Saturday will receive the title and award.

The National Open tune up race will crown the 2015 Hoosier Diamond Series champion.

The sprint car feature will pay $4,000 to win with time trials setting the starting lineups for heat races, followed by a dash and the 25-lap main event. Double file restarts will also be used per outlaws protoco during the event.

Port Royal Speedway

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

Wolfe, Lupfer, Zook And Yoder Record 2015 Port Royal Track Titles

9/20/15

Port Royal – Aboard the potent Zemco No. 1 sprint car, Lucas Wolfe of Mechanicsburg is the 2015 Port Royal Speedway track champion after competing in last weekend’s annual Tuscarora 50 races at the oval.

Wolfe put his name in the record books along with his father Randy who garnered the track crown for his one and only oval title back in 1982.

The track title for Wolfe was his first ever, anywhere, aboard a sprint car although the second-generation driver does own a pair of Pennsylvania Speedweek titles coming in 2007 for car owners Jim and Laura Allebach and in 2014 for Zemco owners John and Pee Wee Zemaitis.

Wolfe competed in 20 of 21 shows completed during the regular Port Royal sprint car season, beginning in April.

Along the way he notched a pair of wins along with three runner-ups, four third-place finishes, a fourth, a sixth, three sevenths, a pair of eighths and a pair of ninth place finishes.

To date, despite being a track titlist, Wolfe owns a total of only three Port Royal career victories.

While Wolfe wrapped up the sprint car championship in the Tuscarora races, Shermansdale’s Mike Lupfer recorded his second super late model track laurels in a row after racing in all 18 events held at the track for the division.

Lupfer began the year in dominating fashion by taking the first three late model mains in succession.

He then returned for a fourth win on the season in July.

Aside from his four victories, Lupfer pushed his No. 06 to a pair of runner-up finishes, a third, a fifth, a seventh, a eighth, a ninth and a 10th place finish.

Lupfer’s name is now in the Port Royal record books with other successive track titlists including: Marv Kauffman, Butch Renninger, Pete Swarmer, Harry Garman, Ed Spencer, Jim Nave, Graham Taylor, Ken Dickson, Chris Shuey, Steve Campbell and Scott Haus.

Other track titles recently recorded have gone to Jason Zook in xtreme stocks and Andrew Yoder in 355 econo late models.

Zook scored once in the xtremes while Yoder copped a pair of wins on his way to the title.

After a few weeks off, Port Royal Speedway will be in action three weeks in a row in October, coming up October 10, 17 and 24.

The Blue Collar Classic featuring a regional 305 sprint clash hosted by the PASS 305 series takes place on October 10 followed by Open Wheel Madness featuring the 410 sprints and URC sprints on October 17.

October 24 will close the Port Royal season with the World of Outlaws sprint cars the main attraction along with the Mid-Atlantic Modifieds.

LAWRENCE CHEVROLET SPORTSMAN 100

UPCOMING EVENTS:

Sat, Sept. 26 (Time Trials 7 PM) - SECOND ANNUAL “DIRT CLASSIC” for 410 Sprints ($20,000 to win)

Sat, Oct 3 - NO RACING

CRISWELL ACHIEVES ULTIMATE GOAL WITH FIRST “SPORTSMAN 100” WIN;

Rookie John Martin claims first career victory in PASS Racesaver Sprints

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 9/19/2015 – The driver known as “the big cat” donned his big cat shirt in victory lane after scoring his first-ever “Lawrence Chevrolet Sportsman 100” win at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

“Back in February or March, (friend and sponsor) Hal (Bitner) came back from Florida and was in the shop and he brought me this shirt and told me if I won the 100-lapper this year, I’d have to wear it in victory lane,” said Martinsburg, West Virginia’s Chad Criswell in victory lane, “I told him that if I win the 100-lapper, I’ll wear a dress in victory lane!”

Counting the $4,000 win, $500 fast time award, $100 bonus for the most laps led, and $1,120.11 in lap money (ask Justin Loh about the 11 cents), Criswell’s total payday was $5,720.11.

Criswell started fourth after drawing the #4 inversion pill following his record-breaking time trial run (first driver ever under 15 seconds for a lap in the super sportsman division), and was running third through a series of caution laps when second-place Frankie Herr spun out in turn three of lap 16.

Criswell grabbed the lead from polesitter and race-long leader Jay Fannasy on lap 20 and led the final 80 laps.

Though Criswell led the rest of the way, it appeared he would receive a serious challenge from Kevin Nouse, who spun on lap three and came back through the field to take the runner-up spot from Mike Enders on lap 73. Nouse was quickly erasing Criswell’s two-second lead when Nouse broke a brake rotor and spun in turns three and four of the 83rd lap.

Enders assumed second for the restart, but ended up dropping from the field with a flat tire on lap 96. Chad Trout, who was running fourth, had a tire going down at the time and dove into the pits for a tire change during the final caution. Doug Dodson, who started 17th, was second for the final restart and finished there. Steve Fannasy (who started 12th), hard charger Dave Socks (who started 22nd), and Kenny Edkins (who started 23rd) rounded out the top five.

“I’m just happy to come through and get this one off the list,” said Criswell, “This was a long couple of weeks preparing for this race. I’m just happy to be standing here in victory lane. I’ve been a bit of a bear the past two years by finishing second, and I was motivated ever since the end of last year. I keep a photograph of the finishing order of the past two years on my phone just so I can look at it and get mad. That motivates me to keep working hard.”

“My guys did a great job tonight,” continued Criswell, “They gave me a good car and we had some luck. I was glad to see that caution with four laps to go. I was trying to not have to deal with lapped traffic. I’ve wanted to win this race for a long time. It’s been on my bucket list ever since I started running in this division. It’ll sink in tomorrow. I love these cars, I love the no power steering, I love the racers…it’s fun, and I’m really proud to win this race.”

Sixth through tenth were Tony Jackson (who came from the rear after hitting the restart cone on lap 11), Carmen Perigo, Jr., Bobby Hockenberry, Steve Wilbur, and Jay Fannasy.

Fast time in time trials over the 33-car sportsman field was set by Chad Criswell with a NEW one-lap TRACK RECORD time of 14.985-seconds (90.090 MPH). Twin qualifying races for the sportsman were won by Hockenberry and last year’s winner Scott Dellinger, who dropped from the feature on lap 40 and was credited with 23rd.

Rookie driver John Martin of Chambersburg raced to his first career win in the 20-lap PASS Racesaver (305) sprint car feature. Martin started second and chased polesitter Ken Duke for the fist nine laps. Once he took the lead in lapped traffic, he drove away from the field.

Duke settled for second, with 23rd-starting Tyler Reeser, Erin Statler, and Cale Reigel completing the top five.

Heats for the 26 PASS RaceSaver Sprints were won by Stephanie Dodson, Colby Dice, and Reigle.

Next Saturday night, Lincoln hosts it biggest race of the year, the $20,000-to-win “Dirt Classic” for the benefit of the Kasey Kahne Foundation. The pit gates for the 410 only sprint car show will open at 3:30 PM, with advance ticket holders admitted at 3:45 PM and general admission gates opening at 4:00 PM. Time trials get underway at 7 PM.

Lucas Wolfe Takes Lead From Dewease For Second Williams Grove Sprints Win

Steve Buckwalter scores ARDC Midgets

9/18/15

Mechanicsburg – Lucas Wolfe took the lead from Lance Dewease and drove to his second sprint car win of the season at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night.

Wolfe pocketed $4,180 for the victory including lap and bonus money.

Steve Buckwalter scored in the 20-lap ARDC Midget main to close the night.

The highly competitive 410 sprint main saw the red flag appear on the first lap when Pat Cannon got out of shape while challenging leader Tim Glatfalter in the third corner.

Cannon’s racer ended up against the outside rail while also collecting the front running machines of Brent Marks, Chase Dietz and others.

Glatfelter restarted with the lead but his run there was short as one-time winner Austin Hogue throttled around the outside and into control on the restart.

Lance Dewease, who restarted third, drove to second with three away and immediately began challenging Hogue for the lead, taking it with four away in the 25 lapper.

Glatfelter then stopped with five down and slowed the pace again with eighth starter Wolfe sitting third for the restart.

Wolfe had disposed of Hogue for second on the restart and was less than a second behind Dewease when another yellow flag unfurled with eight laps down.

Dewease kept Wolfe at bay when green reappeared but Dewease failed to slip away as Danny Dietrich and Greg Hodnett began swapping the third spot.

Dewease’s lead of just over a second was wiped out with the advent of another yellow flag on the 11th tour and again, he kept Wolfe at bay at the new green.

However on a final restart with 11 laps to go, Wolfe provided more of a challenge and Dewease could only hold Wolfe off until the 18th circuit when the Mechanicsburg native blasted underneath for control in the first corner.

Wolfe then began pulling away from the field once he got control as Dietrich and Hodnett continued their battle.

In the end Wolfe took the checkers by 3.308 seconds over Dewease, Dietrich, Hodnett and Brian Montieth.

Sixth through 10th went to 17th starter Freddie Rahmer, Cory Haas, Hogue, Rodney Westhafer and Glenndon Forsythe.

Heats went to Wolfe, Hodnett and Dewease.

Shawn Jackson controlled the first 5 laps of the ARDC Midget main before Tommy Kunsman took over.

But on the move from the 12th starting spot was Steve Buckwalter, who was up to fourth by just the completion of the sixth tour.

Buckwalter moved around PJ Gargiulo for third with eight down, then took second from Jackson a lap later before getting underneath Kunsman for the win with six laps to go.

Steve Drevicki finished second followed by Kunsman, Gargiulo and Brenden Bright.

Heats went to Brett Wanner and Brett Arndt.

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY JIM NACE MEMORIAL 33rd ANNUAL PAUL STINE CHEVROLET NATIONAL OPEN FOR 410 SPRINT CARS WILL CLOSE OUT 2015 RACING SEASON THIS SATURDAY!

 Will Hodnett Tie Rahmer’s 5-Time Win Record In The Open?

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Selinsgrove Speedway will present its crown jewel event, the Jim Nace Memorial 33nd Annual National Open for 410 sprint cars sponsored by Paul Stine Chevrolet, at 7 p.m. this Saturday, Sept. 19.

The Nace Memorial National Open will be a 35-lap tribute race paying $10,000 to win and $400 to start. The Fast Tees Fast Time Award will pay $300. Time trials, heat races, and a B-main will be the qualifying format.

Joining the 410 sprint cars on the Sept. 19 racing card will be the super late models in a 25-lap main event paying $2,000 to win. Track gates will open at 5 p.m. and qualifying will start at 7 p.m.

For the sixth straight year, the 410 Open will honor the life and racing career of Nace, the track’s only five-time sprint car champion who died in November 2009 following a seven-year battle with cancer.

In last year’s race, Greg Hodnett of Spring Grove wired the field and became only the third driver to win the Open four times. Hodnett’s previous Open victories came in 1998, 2004, and 2007. With a stellar16-win season to date, Hodnett is a pre-race favorite to score his fifth victory in the Open and tie Fred Rahmer’s record for the most wins.

Rahmer, of Salfordville, is the track’s only five-time winner of the Open with victories in 1995, 1996, 1997, 1999, and 2000. Todd Shaffer of Millerstown is the other driver on the Open career win list with four championships in 1993, 1994, 2001, and 2008.

In 2013, Pat Cannon of Etters joined the late Maynard Yingst of Linglestown and Rahmer as only the third driver to win three consecutive National Opens. Cannon also won in 2012 and 2011. Yingst’s wins in the Open occurred in 1983, 1984, and 1985.

Other past repeat winners include Lance Dewease of Fayetteville (2002, 2009, 2010) and Don Kreitz Jr. of Sinking Spring (1986 and 1992).

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

The National Open will mark the third appearance of the season by the 410 sprint cars at Selinsgrove Speedway. This year’s previous races were won by Hodnett in the May 24 Ray Tilley Classic and Smith in the July 5 PA Speedweek Finale.

Brent Marks Wins 48th Annual Port Royal All Star Tuscarora 50

Myerstown Driver Pockets Over $21,000 In Three Oval Wins In Six Days

Andrew Yoder wins econo lates and series title

9/13/15

Port Royal – Brent Marks closed a storied chapter in Port Royal Speedway history by claiming the 48th annual Tuscarora 50 for sprint cars sponsored by Ramsey’s Car Washes and Packer’s Concessions on Sunday night, besting the UNOH All Star Circuit of Champions field for a payday worth $12,625 including lap money.

For Marks, the win was his third in six days at the historic oval after taking the September 7 Labor Day Classic and in the Night Before The 50 feature event run on Friday.

Marks took home a total of more than $21,000 for his trio of wins and in doing so he became the first driver in history to sweep the three events at the oval since the format began in 1998.

“Oh man, this is awesome” said Brent Marks, “This is a race I’ve wanted to win and this is a race I said we could win.”

“We’ve went so long without a win this year and now to pull off three in a row is just unbelievable. I just hope I wake up tomorrow and it wasn’t a dream. This has been an awesome, awesome week for us. We’ve been working so hard and this car has been working so good. It was an amazing night.”

The first 25 laps of the 50-lap Tuscarora were electrifying with multiple lead changes and action throughout.

The initial start of the talent-laden field went red when pre-race favorite and fifth starter Greg Hodnett spun his car as he sat it into the first corner, collecting Ryan Smith and Curt Stroup.

The restart of action saw polesitter Ryan Taylor led the first lap before second starter Doug Esh rocketed by for control.

Just after Esh was scored the leader, All Star point runner-up Cody Darrah swiped the outside turn three fence, saving the car but slowing the action.

Danny Dietrich, Mike Wagner and Steve Buckwalter followed Esh and Taylor for the restart.

Dietrich went to work when action again got underway, taking second from Taylor on the fifth lap before setting sail after Esh.

Esh had near disaster on the seventh tour when he burst into the third corner to find a crashed Dylan Cisney into the outside rail.

Esh looped his car in front of the field but kept going as the yellow came out, which stopped the action for refueling with Dietrich, Wagner , Taylor and Buckwalter in tow.

However the restart would prove to be more disastrous for Esh.

Dietrich pounced when the green reappeared, diving by Esh before coming back to the line as the leader with eight away.

But then as the pair raced onto the backchute with Dietrich low and Esh on top, Esh took a high run off of the second corner to try and reclaim control.

As the pair reached the scoreboard, they touched with Dietrich at first turning into Esh, toward the outside rail before straightening but then Esh turned toward the inside rail as he tried to correct and made hard contact with the inside barrier after losing control and coming across the track as Dietrich skated by.

However while under caution, Dietrich came up with a right rear flat thanks to the hard contact with Esh, and this remanded the lead to Mike Wagner.

But Wagner would never be able to be scored the leader under green flag conditions because when action restarted, 14th starter Sheldon Haudenschild drove from his third restarting position around the outside of Ryan Taylor in the second corner before threading the needle on the backchute to blast under Wagner for control and the lead back to the ninth lap.

Once at the front, Haudenschild went to work blasting through the field from behind, working into the backmarkers while 13th starter Brent Marks drove up to second with 12 away.

Haudenschild had a 1.015 second lead over Marks when the mandatory lap 25 stoppage for refueling took place.

Haudenschild had Marks, Dale Blaney, 22nd starter Greg Wilson and Wagner following for the start of the second 25 laps segment.

But to everyone’s surprise when action got underway, Haudenschild took the middle line into the first corner, leaving his customary top lane wide open and Marks used that line to rocket into the lead as the pair raced out of the second turn.

And once at the front, Marks simply turned on the afterburners to drive off from the field for the rest of the nonstop distance.

Only for a few moments in traffic when Marks got bottled up behind cars running two by two was Haudenschild able to close back up.

But just as quickly as Haudenschild would narrow the margin, Marks would break free and again drive off with the lead.

At the finish, Marks won by 1.097 seconds for the prestigious laurels after scoring $625 in lap money.

Haudenschild was second, tallying $5,000 for second plus another $425 in lap cash.

“We got up front pretty quick there and we had a really good car” said Sheldon Haudenschild after finishing second.

“We put a lot of hard work into this deal and to not get the win after leading is a bummer. Congrats to Brent Marks...definitely happy for those guys. He did a great job. I kinda’ messed up on that restart, but we won’t let that happen again.”

Dale Blaney finished a stout third followed by a masterful run by former All Stars titlist Greg Wilson.

And after restarting at the rear on the ninth lap, Danny Dietrich crossed the finish line fifth, perhaps offering proof that he could have taken the win had it not been for the contact and flat tire.

Sixth through 10th went to Wagner, Stevie Smith, Taylor, Blane Heimbach and Steve Buckwalter.

Fast time over the 41-car field went to Greg Hodnett with a time of 18.138 seconds.

Heats went to Esh, Rodney Westhafer, Wagner and Lance Dewease.

Twin B Mains went to Todd Shaffer and Greg Wilson.

Middleburg’s Andrew Yoder led all 22 laps of the econo late model main to best Eric Irvin in the event and in the quest for the track title.

Yoder took a five point leader over Irvin with a run on Labor Day and then stayed ahead of Irvin on Sunday night to take the victory and the track title.

Tim Fedder was third followed by Shaun Miller and Harold Ranck.

Heats went to Fedder and Yoder. Fast time was set by Yoder with a lap of 22.009.

Marks Takes Second Port Win In Five Days In All Star Night Before The 50 Main

Jim Yoder closes late model season with second oval win of year

9/11/15

Port Royal – Brent Marks became the third and final leader of Friday’s UNOH All Star Night Before the Tuscarora 50 sprint car feature event at Port Royal Speedway to pick up the $5,000 payday, his second win in five days at the track after claiming Monday’s Labor Day Classic.

In the 25-lap super late model main, Selinsgrove’s Jim Yoder outlasted his son Dylan to record his second oval win of the season while Mike Lupfer clinched the 2015 track title with his run in the feature.

A deep and stellar field of 47 sprint cars began the 16th running of the Night Before the 50 All Stars program with Danny Holtgraver setting fast time with a lap of 15.733 seconds.

The front row of the 30-lap main event had Ryan Smith on the pole with national veteran Jac Haudenschild to his outside and when action got underway, Haudenschild drove his No. 13 into firm command on the cushion.

Smith was chasing Haudenschild with Marks running third when the leader entered the backmarkers on the seventh tour.

Moments later, Port Royal point leader Lucas Wolf came up lame with a flat rear tire and under the yellow flag, Haudenschild shockingly spun his car in the second corner, giving up his potential second career Port Royal victory.

Smith inherited the lead with Marks second and Brock Zearfoss restarting third and when action resumed Smith rolled the middle with Marks on the bottom in the first corner.

Smith pulled out of striking distance for the next several laps as Marks instead had to fend off the challenges of Zearfoss and then just again as the field was about to enter the backmarkers at the halfway point, another yellow flag bunched the field.

The caution appeared for a spun Greg Hodnett on the frontstretch after Hodnett came up short of completing an inside pass on Sheldon Haudenschild for seventh as the pair raced onto the frontchute and was forced to take evasive action.

Smith found Marks more challenging on this restart and Marks was sticking with the leader with 10 laps to go.

With nine to go, Marks got to Smith’s inside as the pair ran into the second turn and then they shot onto the backchute side by side with Marks completing a massive slide job into the third turn to take the lead.

Smith tried to turn the car and come back underneath Marks for the lead as the pair shot off of the fourth corner onto the front stretch but Marks would lead back to the line and the rest of the distance for his first career All Stars victory.

Marks had taken the white flag for his win when Steve Buckwalter blew an engine in his mount, again slowing the field and this time forcing a red flag for refueling.

All Stars rules produced a green-white-checker finish and Marks took the win by 1.294 seconds over Smith with Zearfoss third followed by Mike Erdley and 11th starter Danny Dietrich.

Sixth through 10th went to Sheldon Haudenschild, Ryan Taylor, Aaron Ott, Chad Kemenah and Greg Wilson.

Heats went to Marks, Erdley, Zearfoss, Lucas Wolfe and Jac Haudenschild.

Smith won the dash to earn the pole for the feature while Blane Heimbach took the C Main and Dave Ely took the B Main.

“This is awesome!” said Brent Marks, “This is my first All Star win so this is really special to me. To get two wins in a row here also feels pretty incredible. This car has been on a rail lately...whatever we did to it, it’s working. We were fast all night tonight and those long green flag runs really helped us out. We were able to get by Ryan (Smith) there...he’s one helluva racer and to get by him says a lot.”

Smith spoke about his run with the lead before falling to second.

“Being out front like that doesn’t really allow you to know what’s going on behind you” he said. “We didn’t quite get the wing back quick enough. We were good, just not good enough. Congratulations to Brent (Marks). Glad to see him back in victory lane, but hopefully we can beat him tomorrow.”

Tim Smith Jr. took the lead when action started in the super late model main over Jim Yoder.

Only one caution flag slowed the race once it got going, on lap 21.

Smith entered the backmarkers on the ninth tour with Jim Yoder and Chad Hollenbeck in tow.

But as the race wore on, Smith’s car began lifting up off of his preferred bottom groove and that allowed Jim Yoder to get underneath for the lead with nine laps to go.

At the lap 21caution flag, seventh starter Jeff Rine was up to third while Dylan Yoder restarted fifth.

And younger Yoder Dylan then went to work on the extreme high side of the track when action resumed to blast around Hollenbech, Rine and Smith to end up a challenging second, just .615 seconds behind his father at the finish.

Smith was third followed by Rine and 13th starter Coleby Frye.

Heats went to Rine, Hayes Mattern and Hollenbeck.

McCLELLAND WINS BATTLE, SNEERINGER WINS WAR IN TRAIL-WAY 358’S; CORY MYERS CLAIMS FOURTH WIN, TRACK TITLE IN MASON-DIXON 270CC MICROS; NEXT GENERATION WINNERS IN STREET STOCKS, LIMITED STOCKS

HANOVER, PA (9/11/2015) – In what might have been his last Trail-Way race, Brad McClelland started on the pole and held off 2015 track champ Isaac Sneeringer to score his seventh win of the year and 49th career Trail-Way “358” sprint car win in the 30-lap Trone Outdoor Advertising Championship on Friday night.

For the second straight week, a redraw for the feature landed McClelland on the pole. But this time, he didn’t lead every lap. Outside front row starter Rick Horn, making his first start of the season in the last Trail-Way 358 sprint event of the year, outran McClelland to the first turn and led the first three laps.

McClelland drove under Horn for the race lead exiting turn four of lap four, and led the rest of the way to claim the $2,000 top prize.

“Luck plays a part in it,” said McClelland of his recent starting spots, “It makes it easy starting on the pole. Zeek was coming up through and showed me his nose once. What a way to end the season!”

Then McClelland dropped the bombshell, hinting at retirement.

“This might be my last race at Trail-Way,” he said, “I have some thinking to do over the next few weeks. I think I might hang it up.”

Thought he settled for second, Sneeringer (who started seventh) entered the final race having already claimed his first track title.

“This is awesome!” he said in victory lane, “I wrecked myself a few times this year, but my crew made the difference with no DNF’s. A track title was one of my goals this year, and I love racing at this place. I don’t know if we’ll be racing full time next year, but we’ll celebrate this one for now.”

Two-time 2015 TW winner Cody Fletcher started fourth and was scored third every lap, with Dwight Leppo and 2015 rookie of-the-year David Holbrook completing the top five.

Chris Frank was the hard charger, coming from 12th starting spot to finish sixth.

Qualifiers for the 14 sprint cars were won by Fletcher and Leppo.

Cory Myers did what he needed to do to claim the 2015 track title by scoring his fourth win of the year in the 20-lap Mason-Dixon 270cc micro-sprint feature. He edged fourth-place finisher Steven Cox by ten points in the season-long point series. Jim Still and Bill Laughman were second and third, with Joe Trone, Jr. rounding out the top five.

Heats for the 19 micros were won by Brian Marriott and Still.

The next generation found victory lane in both the street stock and limited stock feature events.

Aaron Beard, son of Danny Beard, raced to his first career win in the 20-lap street stock main. Beard started on the front row and was running third when leaders Mike Fletcher and eighth-starting Brian Walls got together in turns one and two of lap 11. Walls sustained a right front flat and Fletcher broke a rear axle, with both cars heading to the pits.

Beard assumed the lead for the restart and held off the repeated challenges of Michael Goodwin over the second half of the race. Jeremy Stremmel, Dan Furman, and 14th-starting Eric Johnson completed the top five.

Heats for the 14 street stocks were won by Jim Jacobs and Walls.

Justin Wagaman, son of Brian Wagaman, scored his first career win in the 15-lap limited stock feature. Wagaman started on the outside of the front row and was never headed, with Matt Chronister coming from seventh-starting spot to cross second and eight-starting Kyle Rohrbaugh third. Eric Boozel and 12th-staring Michael Kolodiej, Jr. completed the top five.

Qualifiers for the 16 limited stocks were won by Matt Chronister and Wagaman.

Tomorrow, Saturday September 12th, Trail-Way swings back into action with the AMA Motorcycle Short Track. Gates open at 3:00 p.m. with racing beginning at 6:00 p.m.

Brent Marks Wins Wild Port Royal Labor Day Classic!

Irvin and McClelland win econos and legends

Eli Love and Chuck McCartle claim $1,000 demo derby paydays

9/6/15

Port Royal – Myerstown’s Brent Marks whizzed from third to the lead and was also the third leader during the final lap, to pick up Monday’s 64th annual Labor Day Classic for 410 sprint cars at Port Royal Speedway worth $4,000.

Marks’ first overall win of the year anywhere capped off an amazing daylight performance by the sprint cars on the slick track that produced multiple grooves of racing and exciting side by side battles from beginning to end.

In the 18-lap econo late model main event, Eric Irvin picked up his fourth win of the season over Andrew Yoder and in doing so narrowed Yoder’s scant 20-point lead over himself to just five markers for the season title in a battle that concludes this coming weekend.

To end the afternoon program Travis McClelland prevailed in the 15-lap Central Pa Legends cars event, in a first ever appearance by the cars at the big oval.

York’s Chase Dietz started third in the 25-lap Labor Day Classic for sprint cars and drove by Trenton Schaeffer and polesitter Dylan Cisney for the lead on the first lap.

However Dietz’s pace was slowed before he could really get going on the second lap thanks to a caution period.

Dietz was leading over Schaeffer and Cisney on the seventh tour when another yellow appeared, this time finding seventh starter Marks up to fifth.

Before the caution, all eyes had turned to Logan Wagner who went into no-mans land on the extreme highest line around the track, flirting with the rail but passing cars at will.

And once Wagner took that approach, others followed suit including Aaron Ott, Greg Hodnett and Danny Dietrich along with Cisney.

Marks motored into fourth on the restart, getting around Dietrich who was the defending event champion.

And a lap later Marks took over third behind Cisney with Dietrich following him through.

During all this action at the front, 16th starter Hodnett was making good on his advance efforts to be up to sixth behind Ott when a final yellow flag slowed the pace with 12 laps to go when Logan Wagner saw his high wire act come to an end with a blown left rear tire.

A major shuffling took place on the restart when some went high and some went low with Dylan Cisney drilling Dietz off of the bottom for the lead in the third and fourth turns as Marks, Dietrich and Ott battled one another for position.

Dietrich rimrode around Marks for third with 10 laps to go and then advanced to second a lap later as Dietz began to fade from the front after a valiant effort.

Dietrich closed up on Cisney for the lead after a few laps to track him down and with eight laps to go Ott made a two car pass, getting around both Marks and Dietz to claim third as the fans were pressed with which battle to watch at the front.

With five laps to go the order was Cisney, Dietrich, Ott, Marks and Dietz and the battle would go down to the wire.

Ott muscled around Dietrich deep in the third corner after getting to his inside at the end of the backchute with three laps to go and then he honed in on leader Cisney.

But at the same time, Cisney ran up on a couple of backmarkers running both the bottom and middle of the track and that set up the wild finish that wasn’t decided until the exit of turn four.

As Cisney pushed his car into the first corner trying to get around the backmarker, Ott blasted the top into the corner and took the lead but at the same time Marks surged as low as he could go into the turns and got by Cisney as well.

And then as they split the backmarker exiting the second turn, Marks drew even with Ott and then shot into weak control on the backstretch with Ott following directly behind him through the final turns to come up short by less than a second at the finish.

Cisney ended up third followed by Dietrich and Hodnett.

Sixth through 10th went to Dietz, Lucas Wolfe, Dave Ely, Lance Dewease and Curt Stroup.

Heats for the 24 cars went to Cisney, Dietz and Ott.

Eric Irvin would lead all 18 laps of the econo late model main with Jared Fulkroad chasing in second until lap five when Andrew Yoder took over from 12th starting spot.

But second was as far as Yoder would go as Irvin had the race well in hand, now sitting just five points back for the season title with a final race looming on September 12.

Tim Fedder rode home third followed by Tim Gray and Todd Snook.

Twin heats went to Todd Snook and Devin Hart.

Chad Earnst led the first four laps of the legends feature before Joe Enrisman took over.

Travis McClelland then took the lead on the seventh tour and the pair of McClelland and Enrisman would then battle to the finish with McClelland taking the victory over Enrisman, Harlin Leppo, Bill Diehl and Earnst.

Heats went to Randy Fetterolf and Earnst.

A two-division demolition derby ended the day with Eli Love and Chuck McCartle taking the twin $1,000 paydays.

There was 35 cars in action.

CORY HAAS WINS BILLY KIMMEL MEMORIAL; CHASE DIETZ TOPS 358'S

By TODD HEINTZELMAN

MECHANCISBURG, PA – Cory Haas drove by a fading Rodney Westhafer in turn three coming for the white flag and would lead the final lap to win the Billy Kimmel Memorial Sunday night at Williams Grove Speedway.

Haas, of Dallastown, earned $3,800, plus lap money, for his sixth career Grove win and first of the season in a car owned by Mike Barshinger.

Westhafer started second driving a replica Kimmel No. 47 and drove into the lead.

“Our program has been getting better, but we’ve been having some dumb stuff happen,” said Haas. “The car has been fast here the last month, but circumstances have kept us from winning. We built this car today and finished it up at 4 o’clock. I told Mike I was going to run the crap out of it and whatever happens, happens.”

The cars followed each other around a very fast outside groove. The first caution flag flew with nine laps completed when Danny Dietrich slowed to a stop.

Following the restart, Haas put a third turn slider on Tim Glatfelter to take second. Lance Dewease made the same move by Glatfelter to take third.

Lucas Wolfe drove by Pat Cannon and Glatfelter and was up to fourth as Westhafer maintained a comfortable lead over Haas with 14 laps completed. Point leader Greg Hodnett and Brian Montieth followed them.

Wolfe’s good run came to an end when he blew a left rear tire exiting turn two with 16 laps completed.

Haas didn’t get a good restart and Westhafer was able to get away, but Haas began to close the gap with five laps to go.

He tried to duck under Westhafer in turns one and two, but Westhafer’s momentum off the top kept him out front.

The next time around, Westhafer tried to block the bottom and Haas stayed on the top. The leader was loose off turn two and Haas was there along with the third, fourth and fifth as well.

Haas squeezed under him entering turn three and emerged the leader under the white flag as a wild last lap scramble began.

Westhafer began to fade as Dewease would get by on the final lap along with Hodnett and Montieth. Westhafer ended up fifth.

“The engine starting cutting in and out with about five to go,” said Westhafer. “It was starting to get low on fuel. We checked and we have two or three gallons left in the tank. From running the top and it sloshing around in there, it kept missing the pick-up. We lost brakes on lap five and I drove around this place with no brakes. I can’t thank the Kimmel Family enough for giving me the opportunity to run this car. I wish I could have parked it here for the family and for Billy tonight.”

Freddie Rahmer finished sixth after starting 13th. Pat Cannon, Glatfelter, Brent Marks and Doug Esh rounded out the top 10.

Hodnett, Montieth and Haas won heat races for the 22 cars.

Mechanicsburg’s Kevin Nouse started 10th and drove by Matt Findley entering turn three to take the lead on lap eight of the finale of the Nouse Signs and Graphics Summer Series for the 358 sprints.

On a lap 15 restart, second place Matt Campbell tried a slider in the first turn and drilled Nouse sending him over the second turn fence and through a billboard. Both drivers were okay. Campbell was allowed to restart.

Findley led for one more lap before Chase Dietz drove by and began to pull away. Doug Hammaker moved into second, but couldn’t challenge Dietz for the win. Adrian Shaffer, Findley, and Eric Parker completed the top five. Brie Hershey, Chandler Leiby, Campbell, Nyle Berkes and Amy Ott rounded out the top 10.

Heat races for the 25 cars in the 358 sprints were won by Cody Fairchok, Chase Dietz, and Kevin Nouse.

Gobrecht Properties, LLC Acquires Susquehanna Speedway Park

A Few Schedule Changes Announced for Remainder of the 2015 Season

Next Wednesday Test & Tune on September 16

Newberrytown, PA (September 6, 2015) – Gobrecht Properties, LLC has recently purchased the Susquehanna Speedway Park from TREM, LLC. Todd and Rhonda Fisher, former co-owners and operators of SSP, will co-promote the speedway with Scott Gobrecht of New Oxford for the remainder of the 2015 season during the transition period. To accommodate both parties, a few events have been cancelled or rescheduled for another date. The new schedule of events can be found at www.sspracing.net.

Gobrecht plans to continue promoting the speedway to a premier racing attraction in the Central PA area. He will be keeping the same basic business plan that has been put into place by the Fishers over the past 12 years. Saturday night racing will continue with a variety of Sunday night Sprint Car specials and other special events. The popular Wednesday Night Test & Tunes will continue as well. The Friday nights at the Outback Track will also continue to give kids a place to get started in the sport and learn to race.

Todd and Rhonda Fisher, the second longest tenured owners, purchased the speedway from Racing Stock Car Association in 2004. The nearly-closed speedway was rebuilt and rejuvenated with many improvements and repairs made to the track built in 1954 by Bud Bricker.

Over the 12 years that the Fishers owned and operated the speedway, more than $4 million has been awarded in the form of purse monies and season ending awards to its participants. The highest paying race in its 61-year history was $10,060 that went to the Final Showdown winner, Greg Hodnett on November 15, 2014.

The biggest addition to the speedway in the last 12 seasons was the construction of the Outback Track in 2008 that brought a place for kids to get started in racing in the Central PA area. The 1/9 mile oval features weekly Friday night racing with Quarter Midgets, Karts and Adult Speedcars.

The Fishers also was the first to bring the popular Great American School Bus racing to the area along with implementing innovative programs such as the “Repeat Fan Discount” offering money savings to its loyal customers.

The annual SSP Banquet for the 2015 competitors is currently being planned and the date will be announced soon.

More details about the 2016 season will be forthcoming as they develop.

Due to personal commitments of the Fishers that have recently arisen, the race program scheduled for Saturday night, September 12 has been cancelled.

The next Wednesday night Test & Tune will be on Wednesday, September 16. The gates will open at 5:00 p.m. with practice sessions rotating for each class from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. The cost is $14.00 per person for pit passes and a $20.00 fee for each racecar entering the pit area ($34.00 per car & driver combination). Gates will open at 5:00 p.m. with open track time from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. by class. Each session will be 6 – 8 laps per session. The grandstands are open and free to the public. Each class will receive 4 to 5 rounds of 6/8 laps each or more if time permits. The main concession stand will also be open throughout the night.

Also on Wednesday night, September 16, there will an open practice session for quarter midgets, karts and Adult Speedcars at the Outback Track from 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. under the lights. The gates will open at 5:30 p.m. with open practice from 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. The cost will be $20.00 per driver with no charge for anyone else entering the grandstand and “cold pit” areas. All Outback Track participants should enter the pits from the Kise Mill Road entrance behind turn 2 of the “Big Track.”

The 410 Super Sprint Cars return to SSP on Sunday, September 20 along with the IMCA PA Sprint Series. The 410 Sprint Car feature will pay $3,500-to-win for the 25-lap feature event. Non-qualifiers for the A-Main feature will receive a complimentary non-transferrable entry fee ($50.00 value) for the Final Showdown to be held at SSP in November. For the 410 Sprint Cars, mufflers WILL NOT be required and Hoosier Brand Spec Tires will be required on all four corners (same as the 2015 rules at Williams Grove, Lincoln and Port Royal Speedways). All other rules will follow the generally accepted rules for Sprint Cars at local weekly Central PA Sprint Car tracks (1400 pounds weight rule). Raceivers will be mandatory for all Sprint Cars.

On Sunday, the pit gates will open at 3:30 p.m. Grandstand gates will open at 4:00 p.m. Warm-ups begin at 5:30 p.m. with qualifying races at 6:00 p.m. followed by consolation races and feature events.

Dylan Yoder Scores Big In UFO Port Royal Renninger Memorial

Dave Ely takes Juniata Fair Opener for sprints

Andrew Yoder & Kepner also win

9/5/15

Port Royal – Nearly 100 racecars packed the Port Royal Speedway pit area on Saturday night to kickstart the 161st annual Juniata County Fair featuring the annual Butch Renninger Memorial for super late models.

The UFO-sanctioned Renninger Memorial was taken by Selinsgrove’s Dylan Yoder for his second victory of the season at the track and including lap money, Yoder took home just shy of $4,000 for the prestigious victory.

The 25-lap sprint car feature saw Dave Ely outlast Ryan Taylor and Greg Hodnett for the $3,200 payday, which was the third of his career at the track.

In the econo late model main, Andrew Yoder took the win and point lead in the division over Eric Irvin with just two races left in the point season for the stock cars.

And to close the night Corey Kepner scored his second win of the season in the xtreme stock main event.

Yoder started second in the 33-lap Butch Renninger Memorial for the super lates with Bryan Bernheisel on the pole and Yoder took the lead at the drop of the green.

Fourth starter Nick Dickson motored into second on the first lap as Yoder began opening up a lead and eyes turned to ninth starter Coleby Frye.

Frye was up to sixth behind UFO point leader Devin Friese and was challenging for fifth when the pair made contact in the second corner, bringing out the yellow flag for a stopped Friese.

UFO rules forced Frye to the rear due to the contact and a double file restart saw Yoder choose the outside lane for the new green.

However Yoder got a terrible start when action resumed and allowed Dickson to take command and start stretching out an advantage while he slipped to third behind Jeff Miller briefly.

But Yoder was back to second on the seventh tour, trying to catch new leader Dickson.

The leaders entered lapped traffic on the 14th tour with Dickson ahead by nearly a second and Yoder was clearly coming on and was alongside Dickson for the lead when another caution flag slowed the pace on the 19th tour.

Yoder again chose the outside for the restart and this time didn’t falter, instead staying alongside Dickson into the first corner before riding the high line into control.

Yoder was pulling away when a final yellow slowed the pace with eight laps to go and he again stretched it out as the final laps were recorded, taking the win by 5.5 seconds over Dickson.

After starting 11th, Dan Stone raced forward to finish third, taking the spot on lap 21.

Tim Wilson was fourth with Jeff Miller fifth at the line.

Sixth through 10th went to hard charging 21st starter Jeff Rine, Jim Yoder, a rebounding Coleby Frye, Jason Schmidt and Trent Brenneman.

Heats for the 35-car field went to Schmidt, Wilson, Dylan Yoder and Friese.

Twin consolations went to Chad Hollenbeck and Mike Lupfer.

Ely of West Lawn started third in the 410 sprint main with Curt Stroup and Blane Heimbach sharing the front row.

Richfield’s Stroup took the lead at the start with Heimbach second but Ely blasted into the runner up spot on the second tour.

Stroup was holding sway over the pack on the eighth tour when the red flag appeared for a flipped Davey Sammons on the frontchute.

Sammons was running fifth at the time, battling with Greg Hodnett for the spot when he impacted the outside fence as he raced to the outside of Hodnett to defend the spot.

Both Hodnett and Aaron Ott shuffled Heimbach backward on the restart before Heimbach fell out of the race while sixth starter Ryan Taylor advanced around Stroup for second on the 12th lap.

Stroup’s left rear tire exploded on the 13th tour and Hodnett lined up third for the restart.

But Taylor protected his turf for second over the last half of the race as both he and Ely kept ahead of Hodnett.

They leaders entered the rear of the pack with five laps to go but Ely kept up his pace to record the win by 1.166 seconds at the finish.

Taylor was second followed by Hodnett, Ott and 12th starter Brent Marks.

Sixth through 10th went to Dylan Cisney, Lance Dewease, Doug Esh, Lucas Wolfe and Mike Wagner.

Heats for the 30 cars went to Heimbach, Ely and Cisney with Joey Hershey scoring the consolation.

Todd Snook led the first 10 laps of the 18-lap econo late model main before sixth starter Andrew Yoder took over while cruising the outside lane to perfection.

Yoder checked out on the field to the finish, winning by 6.4 seconds over Snook, Devin Hart, Jared Fulkroad and Eric Irvin, who entered the race as the point leader before Yoder took over with this winning run.

Heats went to Dave Leidy and Snook.

Jason Zook controlled the first eight laps of the xtreme stock feature before giving way to Corey Kepner on a lap nine restart.

Kepner then rolled to the win over Zook, Jason Davis, Pete Leister and Deron Henry.

FREDDIE RAHMER FOURTH TO FIRST IN LAST LAP TO CLAIM FIRST CAREER WIN;

Campbell keeps title hopes alive with win in 358 sprints; Dellinger best of super sportsman

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 9/5/2015 – It’s impossible to describe the last two laps of Saturday’s “410” sprint car feature at Lincoln Speedway.

To simplify the shock that left a packed house in awe, Freddie Rahmer came from fourth to first in a wild last lap to score his first career “410” sprint car win, coming on the heels of brother Brandon’s first career win one week earlier.

“I knew I had a shot there, but coming through the last corner, that was a little close,” said Rahmer, “I don’t know why it took so long to get going, but I can’t tell you how bad I wanted this, and it means a lot.”

Billy Dietrich started outside of polesitter Tim Wagaman and led all but the last lap.

Freddie Rahmer took second from Wagaman on lap three and chased Dietrich for the next 15 laps. That’s when tenth-starting and 2015 Lawrence Chevrolet track champ Brian Montieth (who claimed the title in warmups) grabbed the runner-up spot from Rahmer with six laps to go.

Then enter 11th-starting Danny Dietrich, who was charging through the field and grabbed the third spot from Rahmer with two laps to go. As Montieth, Rahmer, and Danny Dietrich crossed under the white flag, Rahmer was sandwiched between the two in a three-car battle for second in heavy lapped traffic.

Montieth slid high in turns one and two and nearly collected Danny Dietrich, with Rahmer sliding under both cars for second heading up the backstretch. He then slid under Billy Dietrich to take the lead in the final turns.

“I saw Montieth at one point. Last week I screwed up when he got to me. It wasn’t his fault. I stepped on it,” said Rahmer of the action around him during the final lap, “But I knew the bottom was coming in. I was waiting for lapped cars, and I didn’t know if I was going to get them. I just ran in hard the last lap and it worked out. Montieth got me off of four and I thought he would have hit the bottom for sure. I don’t know if he slid across or what he did, but it worked out for us.”

All top four cars crossed under the checkered flag within nine-tenths of a second of each other.

Billy Dietrich was second, with Montieth third and Danny Dietrich fourth.

J.J. Grasso ran in the top five the entire race and finished fifth, with Jimmy Siegel, Austin Hogue, Robbie Kendall, Alan Krimes, and 19-starting Chase Dietz completing the top ten.

“Brandon’s win last week bothered me a little bit, but that’s part of it,” said Rahmer, “I want to thank my parents and Moon (Byers), Stevie (Smith), Keith…all the guys that help. It’s pretty awesome!”

Heats for the 31 410’s were won by Hogue, Siegel, and Wagaman, with Dietz winning the consolation.

Fawn Grove’s Matt Campbell scored his second win of the year in the 20-lap “358” sprint car feature. Campbell drew the pole and led every lap. His win, combined with Doug Hammaker’s third-place finish, closed Campbell to within five points of Hammaker for the 2015 Keiser Aluminum Wheels track title with next week’s race the last points race of the season.

Hammaker, who lost a torsion stop on the first lap, claimed the weekend Trail-Way/Lincoln “358” sprint shootout after finishing fourth at Trail-Way Friday night, and held on to the Lincoln points lead by getting around Chandler Leiby for second on lap 11. Kevin Nouse caught Hammaker for the runner-up spot on lap 17.

Jeff Halligan came on late to finish fourth, with 12th-starting Adrian Shaffer crossing fifth. Sixth through tenth were Leiby, 16th-starting Jeff Rohrbaugh, Ashley Cappetta, Matt Findley, and 20th-starting Ryan Higgins.

Heats for the 24 358 Sprints were won by Findley, Hammaker, and Leiby.

The final points tally for the Trail-Way/Lincoln Shootout saw Jeff Rohrbaugh finish second for the two nights, followed by Jeff Halligan, Dwight Leppo, and Mike Bittinger.

Scott Dellinger started second, followed polesitter Kenny Edkin the first five laps, took the lead on lap six, and led the rest of the way in the 25-lap super sportsman feature. Third-starting Russ Mitten passed Edkin for second on lap ten and ran there the rest of the way, crossing 1.06 seconds behind the winner.

In the final tune-up for the September 19th “Lawrence Chevrolet Sportsman 100,” Edkin settled for third, with Carmen Perigo, Jr. and Frankie Herr rounding out the top five.

Heats for the 31 Sportsman were won by Perigo, Bobby Hockenberry, and Chad Smith, with Tom Wyckoff winning the consolation.

Next Saturday night, Sept. 12th at 7 PM the Keizer Aluminum Wheels 358 Sprints will race in their final point race of 2015. The 358 late models have been added to the show, and they will be joined by the Central PA Legends and All-American Outlaws. Gates will open at 5 PM with racing action getting underway at 7 PM.

Ott Wins 33rd Annual Williams Grove Gunn Memorial In Attrition Filled Event

Reeser sweeps Grove 305 season action

9/4/15

Mechanicsburg – Aaron Ott of East Berlin won the 33rd annual Jack Gunn Memorial for 410 sprint cars at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, taking the $6,000 victory in an attrition filled event that saw only 10 cars finish the race.

Tyler Reeser scored his second Williams Grove win of the season in the 305 sprint main, scoring a sweep of the oval’s 305 action this season.

The initial start of the 30-lap Gunn Memorial was red flagged when Stevie Smith got turned over on the frontchute after contact with a slowed Doug Esh who nearly lost control of his car on the high cushion.

Another yellow then unfurled before a lap could be completed for a turn three connection between Jordan Givler and Wayne Dadetto.

The red flag again appeared with three laps recorded as Ott held sway over Greg Hodnett and Brian Montieth, this time for a turn two flip by Brock Zearfoss after Danny Dietrich got into him while attempting to pull a slide job for position.

And then the restart went red again when Greg Hodnett nearly vaulted his car out over Montieth’s in the fourth corner after Montieth blasted deep into turn three trying to steal second away from Hodnett.

Hodnett hung tough on the outside as the pair hit turn three and Montieth couldn’t hold the car and went up in front of Hodnett with Hodnett hopping his right rear tire and somehow saving the car whiel Montieth went on to turn over but not before also collecting Pat Cannon and also Doug Esh.

Lance Dewease assumed second for the restart and took a look low for the lead when action resumed but Ott was fleet on the cushion and pulled away once the race finally got going under green flag conditions.

By lap 10, Ott had put 3.3 seconds between himself and Dewease.

The yellow unfurled for a stopped Danny Dietrich on the 19th tour and then the red flag again appeared with six laps to go, this time for last week’s winner Austin Hogue who had flames erupt into the cockpit while running eighth in the field.

Ott then went on to win the lengthy event by 2.917 seconds ahead of Dewease, Lucas Wolfe, a bullish Esh and Brent Marks.

Sixth through 10th went to Cory Haas, Chase Dietz, Rodney Westhafer, Glenndon Forsythe and Troy Fraker.

Two rounds of heats for the 410 sprints went to Dietz, Hogue and Haas in the first round with Dewease, Dietz and Hogue taking the second.

Ott set fast time in qualifications with a lap of 16.864 seconds while he also won the dash to earn the pole for the feature event.

The 305 sprint main was also caution riddled with no less than four yellow flags slowing the action.

Darren Miller led the first two laps before Tyler Reeser took over on a restart to score the win.

After starting 14th in the 20-lap main, New York’s Mike Kiser was up to second and ready to challenge for the lead when he suddenly lost power, with five laps to go, causing the final of the four caution periods.

Scott Ellerman finished second followed by Stephanie Dodson, Nate Gramley and Colby Dice.

Heats went to Miller, Alex Schanz and Cale Reigle.

McCLELLAND SCORES WIN OF THE YEAR IN TRAIL-WAY “358” SPRINTS; BILL DIEHL WINS FOURTH OF THE YEAR IN CENTRAL PA LEGENDS; ERIC JOHNSON CLAIMS THIRD WIN IN STREET STOCKS; MICHAEL KOLODIEJ, JR. FIRST-TIME WINNER IN LIMITED STOCKS

HANOVER, PA (9/4/2015) – Brad McClelland won both ends of the “358” sprint car feature at Trail-Way Speedway Friday night.

With a one-hour, forty minute rain delay half-way through the event, Brad McClelland started on the pole and led every lap for his division-leading 48th career win at Trail-Way.

After dodging the wet stuff earlier in the evening, Trail-Way was hit with heavy rain during a 14th lap caution involving five cars in turn two. As the cars were lining up for a restart, a sudden heavy shower forced the cars to outer pit area.

“It didn’t matter to me if they called it,” said McClelland upon exiting the Steve Rucker Littlestown Auto Care Center/Arter Graphics/Rucker Computer Solutions #6R, “But I’m glad they stuck it out.”

“I was too loose at the beginning of the race and I was getting worried,” said McClelland, “But the car worked better after the rain.”

Cody Fletcher was running second when the rains came, but spun racing through lapped traffic in turns three and four of lap 23, damaging front suspension parts and ending his night. Dwight Leppo assumed second for the restart and held off Jeff Rohrbaugh over the final two laps. Mike Bittinger and Doug Hammaker completed the top five.

Qualifiers for the 18 “358” sprinters were won by Rohrbaugh and Trail-Way points leader Isaac Sneeringer, who was hung up in the five-car lap 14 crash and finished tenth.

Craley’s Bill Diehl came from fifth starting spot to catch outside front row starter Rick Hartwig on lap six and score his fourth win of the year in the 20-lap Central PA Legends feature. Travis McClelland pressured Diehl over the second half of the race, but settled for a well-earned runner-up finish. Chris Transeau, Chris McKinney, and Travis Perry crossed third through fifth.

Heats for the 17 Legends were won by McKinney and Chad Earnst.

Eric Johnson raced to his third win of the year and third career win in the 20-lap street stock feature. Johnson, who was helped by the rain delay in getting enough time change a rear end, crossed 1.5 seconds ahead of Will Walls, who was subsequently disqualified for using illegal heads.

Walls’ disqualification moved Brian Walls up to second, with Mike Fletcher, Michael Goodwin; and Jim Jacobs credited with third through fifth.

Michael Kolodiej Jr. started on the pole and held off several challengers during the course of the 15-lap event to claim his first career Friday night Trail-Way win in the limited stock feature. Lady driver Sarah Redmond crossed .4 seconds behind Kolodiej in second, with Chad Martin, Matt Chronister, and Keith Dorsey II rounding out the top five.

Qualifiers for the 16 limited stocks were won by Chad Martin and Redmond.

Friday September 11th, Trail-Way hosts the “Trone Outdoor Championship” for 358 sprint cars paying $2,000 to win! The Mason-Dixon 270 Micro Sprints, Street Stocks and Limited Stocks will also be in action. Gates open at 5:30 p.m., with heats scheduled to begin at 7:45 p.m.

The following day, Saturday September 12th, Trail-Way swings back into action with the AMA Motorcycle Short Track. Gates open at 3:00 p.m. with racing beginning at 6:00 p.m.

Second-place starter Nate Stroup pulled into the lead at the start of the pro stock feature. N.

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.

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. Gates will open at 5 PM with racing action getting underway at 7 PM.

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.

Tony Jackson, Dan Zechman and Jeff Haag Win Williams Grove Speedway Saturday Features

Mechanicsburg, PA., August 23, 2015

The name Jackson is famous in Williams Grove Speedway’s Super Sportsman history. Larry Jackson, one of the greatest drivers in the annals of Super Sportsman racing, won 13 features at Williams Grove. Saturday night Tony Jackson, son of Larry Jackson, added his name to the victor’s list with a climatic victory over veteran Russ Mitten.

Tony Jackson started on the pole in the 20-lap Blazer’s Body Shop Super Sportsman feature and sprinted into the lead. Russ Mitten, Chad Trout, Bill Devine, and Bobby Hockenberry were in pursuit. Trout wrestled second from Mitten in the second lap.

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. Eighth and ninth were the BAPS cars of Brent Marks, 18th-starting Austin Hogue, and Kyle Moody.

BAPS Auto Paints & Supply provided $300 bonuses to the two sprint car winners, and added $200 to the second-place finisher and $100 to the third-place finisher in each sprint division. Fundraising efforts during BAPS two nights of 2015 Lincoln racing resulted in $7,000 for Olivia’s House in York.

Heats for the 27 410’s on hand were won by Brandon Rahmer, Jim Siegel, and Moody, with Scott Fisher winning the consolation.

Bill Stine started on the pole and led every lap of the “358” sprint car feature for his first career division win, despite losing the lead for a portion of a lap and reclaiming the lead from eighth-starting Adrian Shaffer, who chased the winner from lap four on.

Third through fifth were Lincoln point leader Doug Hammaker (who started 12th), Kevin Nouse, and Cole Young. Sixth through tenth were Matt Campbell (sporting a #31 to wing in remembrance of Jimmy Campbell), Tyler Esh, Ryan Higgins, Cody Fletcher, and Jeff Rohrbaugh (who came from the rear twice in multi-car crashes, the last one on lap eight).

Heats for the 29 358’s on hand were won by Campbell, Stine, and Nouse, with Lucas Montgomery winning the consolation.

Glen Bernie, Maryland’s Rick Hulson led flag-to-flag in the 20-lap All-American Outlaw feature, holding off Fred Cullum the entire way and crossed .97 seconds behind the winner. The victory ended a five-race win streak for teammate Kurt Zimmerman, who came from 11th starting spot to finish third. Fourth and fifth were Randy Doty and Justin Cullum.

Heats for the 17 All American Outlaws on hand were won by Zimmerman and Hulson.

Lincoln swings back into action with another special mid-week show this Wednesday, August 27th, at 7:30 PM with the Fred Rahmer Promotions “Legends of Central Pennsylvania” night. Central PA Legends will round out the evenings racing program which will see the gates open at 5:30 PM, and racing getting underway at 7:30 PM.

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.

Twin 20s For Sprints And Street Stocks Friday At Williams Grove Speedway

$5,000 In Tires To Be Given Away To Sprints!

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.

Adult general admission is $18 with youth priced at just $10.

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

An exhibition of restored racecars from the Eastern Museum of Motor Racing will take place in the speedway infield prior to the races on August 21 and track time for the cars is on tap as well.

The track portion of the 50/50 on August 21 will go to the Eastern Museum of Motor Racing.

Van May accomplished the feat in 1983 while Fred Rahmer pulled it off in 1995.

The running of the August 21 Twin 20?s will play a vital role in helping to determine the 2015 track champion.

Any bad luck or mechanical malfunction could sideline the front-runners from staying in the title fight.

The Williams Grove Saturday series featuring action with the super sportsman, limited late models and the street stocks continues through August.

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

Heimbach Drives To 10-Second Port Royal Sprints Victory, Miller Takes Lates

Econos to Fedder, Zimmerman gets All American Outlaws

8/15/15

Port Royal ? Blane Heimbach of Selinsgrove drove away from the sprint car field to record a massive margin of victory at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night, taking the win over Lance Dewease by 10.155 seconds.

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.

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.

Williams Grove Speedway Saturday Night News

Family Entertainment At Family Prices

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’s Saturday Night Series roars back into action on August 8 with a show featuring the Blazer’s Body Shop Super Sportsman, Credit Connection Auto Sales 358 Late Models and Aquafun Pools Street Stocks.

Last Saturday Scott Dellinger from Lewisberry won his second Super Sportsman feature of the season.

The speedway track maintenance crew did an outstanding job repairing the fencing allowing the show to continue.

The Manchester Missile, Randy Christine Jr., won his very first Williams Grove Speedway 358 Late Model main event. Christine used the outside line to hold off a determined Dan Zechman.

Chambersburg’s Doug Bennett made his first visit to Williams Grove’s victory lane with a triumph in the Street Stock show. Bennett led every lap of the event.

The Saturday Night Series is in the final weeks of the point chase. Each race is important providing an extra element of excitement to the upcoming shows.

This week Williams Grove Speedway’s management will donate their half of the 50/50 money to the Humane Society of Harrisburg Area. Located on Grayson Road east of Harrisburg, the organization provides shelter to the region’s unfortunate animals.

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.

Abbottstown, PA

UPCOMING EVENTS:

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.

Dietrich Starts Ninth And Wins Again, Gets Back To Back Williams Grove Wins

Hodnett Claims $4,000 URC Cash

7/31/15

Mechanicsburg ? Last week at Williams Grove Speedway Danny Dietrich drove from ninth to the win over the World of Outlaws drivers and this week, he started ninth again and drove to the 410 sprint car victory, for the second week in a row.

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.

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.

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

Celebrating the 26th season of racing action, NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series always includes fun for the fans with activities such as: Pre-Race Pit Tours, the Inside/Out Experience – where fans can sign-up to watch hot laps from the infield, the Low Down & Dirty Radio Show pre-race Meet & Greet – featuring Ryan Smith and Freddie & Brandon Rahmer, JOE “THE PIZZA DUDE”, giveaways, fireworks, and appearances by the Thunder Girls.
