Lance Dewease Wins Rain Shortened Williams Grove National Open Preliminary

9/30/22

Mechanicsburg – Lance Dewease raced through the raindrops to win an abbreviated Champion Racing Oil World of Outlaws Sprint Cars National Open Preliminary at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night.

The win completed a clean sweep of September action at Williams Grove by Dewease who also took three other main events during the month.

Friday’s win was the 110th of Dewease’s career at the oval, worth $10,000. It was also his seventh victory of the season there and the third of his career in the National Open Preliminary event.

Some 51 cars entered the big event on Friday at Williams Grove, meant to set the stage for Saturday’s Diamond Anniversary, 40-lap, $75,000 to win Champion Racing Oil National Open itself.

And Dewease earned the pole for what was to be the 25-lap Friday main by winning the dash over Sheldon Haudenschild.

As light rain began to fall, the feature took the green flag with Dewease beating Haudenschild into the first corner to take the early lead as Carson Macedo, Anthony Macri and Brent Marks gave chase.

By lap four Dewease had built a 1.6 second lead over Ohio’s Haudenschild.

The pacesetter was just ready to enter the rear of the field, just a few car lengths from beginning to put cars a lap down in the first corner when outlaws officials called for a yellow flag due to a slickening racing surface thanks to the moisture.

The caution period lasted approximately five minutes as officials kept cars circling the half-mile oval with intentions to work the surface back into racing condition.

And the tenacity paid off when the green flag again appeared for a restart with Haudenschild and Macedo following while Marks was up to fourth.

Already an outlaws winner at the track earlier this season, Marks was on the move when action resumed as he muscled third away from Macedo by lap 10.

But then moments later as Dewease was just about to complete lap 11, Marks went catapulting out over the third turn rail before ending up against the speedway grounds perimeter fencing.

The Myerstown driver had hopped the cushion as he entered the third corner, causing his car to barrel into a series high-flying flips.

Luckily the pilot escaped injury.

The stoppage for the Marks crash saw the persistent light rains continue, forcing officials to remove cars from the track.

After another 30-minute delay due to the showers, cars were called back to the track when the moisture relented and the surface was just put back into race-ready condition and the cars were lining up for a restart when another round of rain began falling.

Under World of Outlaws rules, outlaws officials then certified the race complete with 10 laps recorded.

Dewease would take the win by 1.3 seconds over Haudenschild.

Macedo inherited third, followed by Macri and David Gravel.

Sixth through 10th went to Brad Sweet, Jacob Allen, Donny Schatz, Spencer Bayston and Justin Peck.

Heats went to Haudenschild, Gravel, Marks and Macri.

Steve Buckwalter won the C Main and Dylan Cisney took the B Main.

Marks set overall fast time in time trials with a lap of 16.520 seconds.

Feature Finish

MACRI THREE-PEATS IN SELINSGROVE NACE MEMORIAL NATIONAL OPEN;

SPAHR CLOSES OUT 305 SPRINT CAR SEASON WITH SECOND WIN

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Anthony Macri of Dillsburg captured his third straight victory in the Jim Nace Memorial 40th Annual National Open for 410 sprint cars Saturday night at Selinsgrove Speedway.

Macri, who won the division’s first race of the year in April’s Ray Tilley Classic, book-ended his season at the historic speedway by becoming the fourth driver to record three consecutive wins in the National Open. The late Maynard Yingst of Linglestown (1983-85), Fred Rahmer of Salfordville (1995-97), and Pat Cannon of Etters (2011-2013) also pulled off the feat.

The win aboard the Macri Concrete/J&S Classics No. 39M was worth $26,000, a tribute to one of Nace’s most popular car numbers he campaigned in central Pennsylvania sprint car racing.

Gio Scelzi of Fresno, Calif., was the Fast Tees Fast Qualifier with a lap of 16.341. Scelzi scored his first career win at the track in May.

Blane Heimbach of Selinsgrove, who won two of the eight 410 sprint car races this year, clinched his first career Lelands.com 410 sprint car track championship worth $5,000.

Logan Spahr of Lewisberry won his second race of the year in the 20-lap PASS 305 sprint car feature.

Ken Duke of Selinsgrove wrapped up his first career Apache Tree Service 305 sprint car track championship.

The two-day National Open weekend, a first at the track since 1992, concluded the speedway’s 76th anniversary season.

Polesitter Danny Dietrich out-dueled second-place starter Anthony Macri for the early lead at the start of the sprint car main event. For the first laps, Macri tormented Dietrich for the front spot but struggled to find a way around him. On the seventh circuit, Macri powered underneath Dietrich in turn two to take command of the field while third-place starter Brian Brown and fourth-place starter Freddie Rahmer raced in the top five.

At the lap 15 mark, Dietrich reeled in Macri again and on lap 17 pulled a slider in turn two. Dietrich was able to take the lead back for a few seconds until Macri raced back underneath him to reclaim the front spot out of turn two.

The race was red-flagged on lap 20 for a scheduled fuel stop. Under the red flag, Brown’s car developed a flat tire and he was forced to restart on the rear of the field.

When the race resumed, Macri led Dietrich, 10th-place starter Brent Marks, sixth-place starter Daryn Pittman, and Rahmer. The closest battle on the track in the second half of the race was the battle for third between Marks and Pittman.

In the final laps of the race, Dietrich was reeling in Macri, erasing the deficit with each passing lap. At the checkered flag, Macri was victorious by just 1.6 seconds over Dietrich, Pittman, Marks, and Rahmer.

Front row starter Kruz Kepner pulled into the early lead at the start of the 305 sprint car feature and was chased by third-place starter Austin Reed.

Reed took over the front spot on lap three with an outside pass in turn four. He set the pace through lap seven, when sixth-place starter Logan Spahr made the winning pass using the inside lane off turn four.

Kepner attempted to reel in the leader to no avail. Spahr took the checkered flag by two seconds over Kepner, Zach Rhodes, Reed, and Doug Dodson.

60th Champion Racing Oil Williams Grove National Open History Continues This Week,

Diamond Anniversary Race Again Pays $75,000 Top Prize Oct. 1

9/25/22

Mechanicsburg – Sprint car fans in the East will assemble Saturday night to see the Diamond Anniversary running of the Williams Grove Speedway Champion Racing Oil National Open for sprint cars sanctioned by the World of Outlaws Sprint Cars Series, going 40-laps in distance and again paying a gigantic $75,000 to the winner.

The widely acclaimed event will go down in history with a Saturday A-Main total purse alone eclipsing $155,000!

The National Open has a grand history that dates back to its inception and first champion in 1963. It is a history that pre-dates all other season-finale races held anywhere in the East.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

That 1978 National Open holds the distinction of technically being the first-ever race to be sanctioned by the World of Outlaws at Williams Grove despite the fact that no outlaws drivers were actually in the field.

All the stars of the WoO circuit were at a race in the western part of the nation on that date but outlaws rules during the series’ formative years stated that any race paying over a certain dollar amount to win would count as a sanctioned race and such is the history.

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.

The only National Open to ever carry an All Stars Circuit of Champions sanction took to the track in 1981 when Steve Smith Sr. returned for a third Open triumph.

Lynn Paxton went back-to-back in 1982 and 1983 and stunned the racing world after his second 75-lap win by going into retirement during the off-season.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Schatz was again the winner in 2007.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

And then Stevie Smith got redemption in what was to be the first three-day National Open in history in 2015.

After three consecutive days of rain stopped the event dead in its tracks, a break with the weather on Sunday allowed a raindated Open to be completed with Smith taking the lead from Danny Dietrich on the ninth tour to lead the final 31 circuits and beat Schatz to the line for victory.

An uncanny three more days of rain and raw weather wiped out a second attempt at a three-day nationals in 2016.

An outlaws make up two weeks later found Danny Dietrich taking the lead from Joey Saldana with two laps to go in the 40-lap affair to score a wildly popular win for the Pennsylvania Posse. Brad Sweet also took a turn at leading the main.

Connecticut’s David Gravel struck for his second $50,000 score in the 2017 National Open. Gravel took the lead from Donny Schatz and then took the lead back from James McFadden to win the 55th Annual affair.

An emotional 2018 event held just days after the tragic death of 2009 National Open champion Greg Hodnett saw local driver Lance Dewease win his fourth career nationals for his fourth different car owner.

Driving for Don Kreitz Jr. in the No. 69K, Dewease wrestled the lead away from Brock Zearfoss with a three-wide move in the second turn on lap 24 to seal the 40-lap deal, worth $56,000. A tearful Dewease dedicated the victory to Hodnett.

Brent Marks of Myerstown won the richest sprint car race in the history of Williams Grove Speedway and the largest cash payoff ever for a sprint car race in the Eastern United States by claiming a $65,000 victory in 2019.

A former regular at the track before going on the road with the World of Outlaws Sprint Cars Series a few years prior, Marks scored the WoO victory by turning back challenges from both Brian Brown who took the lead for a time early and from Daryn Pittman on a last lap restart in the 40-lap affair.

A National Open billed as the biggest sprint car race in the nation went to outlaw Donny Schatz in 2020 as the North Dakotan scored $75,000 for his unrivaled sixth career victory in the event. Schatz was the third and final leader in the hotly contested 40-lapper.

A lap 12 restart saw David Gravel pull the trigger for control over Logan Schuchart but after locking down to the low side in the third and fourth turns, Schatz reeled in Gravel to make a low side, first turn winning move as the leader was entering traffic on lap 21. Kyle Larson come to life after a lap 25 restart and when Schatz entered traffic with seven laps left he closed in for the win. Larson pulled a banzai run through the third and fourth corners as the pair raced to the checkers by blasting the outside line before pulling to Schatz’s outside in turn four however just as it appeared that he would edge in front his mount jumped the cushion.

California’s Carson Macedo won the biggest sprint car race of his career in the 2021 version of the Open when he became the third and final leader in the 40-lap main, overtaking Logan Schuchart for the lead with four laps to go.

Schuchart got control on lap 13 when defending event winner and current leader Brent Marks spun while working traffic. Macedo fought off the challenges of Sheldon Haudenschild for second with 12 laps to go before taking the lead from a struggling Schuchart in traffic.

Admission prices for Saturday’s National Open are $40 for adults and $20 for youth.

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

Williams Grove National Open Preliminary Has Its Place In History

2022 event to be run September 30

9/25/22

Mechanicsburg - As much as the Champion Racing Oil National Open at Williams Grove Speedway deserves its place in sprint car lore as it celebrates its Diamond Anniversary, 60th running on October 1 with a $75,000 payday, the National Open Preliminary race itself also has a place at the history table.

Although not an annual event, the National Open Preliminary race will hold its head high and celebrate its 35th running on September 30.

The preliminary was first run in 1980 with Keith Kauffman taking the win aboard the Weikert Livestock No. 29.

That preliminary win would be the first of two for Weikert in the race with Doug Wolfgang scoring again a few years later in 1985.

Noted author and television commentator of today, driver Brad Doty of Apple Creek, Ohio was lured East back in 1981 and picked up what would be his first of two career Williams Grove wins in the preliminary before suffering career ending injuries in a racing crash a few years later.

The event has only been lost to weather eight times over the years and on nine occasions the preliminary winner has swept both National Open races, going on to score the coveted big prize a day later.

Sweeps came in 1982, 1985, 1989, 1990, 1995, 1996, 1997, 2011 and in 2017 at the respective hands of Lynn Paxton, Wolfgang, Stevie Smith, Steve Kinser, Mark Kinser, Lance Dewease, Sammy Swindell, Jason Myers and David Gravel.

And that sweep by Paxton in 1982 was surrounded by considerable controversy stemming from the preliminary race.

The Williams Grove record books actually show a tie for the preliminary win between both Paxton and Ohio’s Dave Blaney on September 17.

A young Blaney was leading, headed for his first career Grove win on that night when he ran into mechanical problems as he raced off of the fourth turn toward the checkers.

Veteran Paxton was trailing and gaining fast as Blaney tried to limp home and the scorers documented his No. 10 as crossing the finish line first.

However unrest abounded regarding that decision and a picture of the finish taken at the line produced the next day clearly showed Paxton crossing very close but definitely first.

Thus both drivers were paid for and credited with a victory and Paxton could go on to score the weekend sweep with Grove career wins 38 and 39.

No driver has been able to put up big numbers in the preliminary race over the years unlike within its big brother National Open wherein World of Outlaws driver Donny Schatz is going for an amazing seventh event title in this year’s race.

Rather, in the preliminary no driver holds more than a trio of wins with Kauffman, Steve Kinser and Gravel all holding that distinction.

Before the World of Outlaws began sanctioning the preliminary in 1989, the race was contested once as an All Stars Circuit of Champions contest with Maynard Yingst the winner in 1986.

Today and for many years now the National Open Preliminary at Williams Grove is run as a separate and stand-alone show aside from the Open itself.

However for a number of years as an outlaws race, the top four finishers in the preliminary race were automatically locked into the next night’s National Open.

This was standard procedure under World of Outlaws sanctioning rules for two-day shows for many seasons.

In the 2006 running of the event, Washington state driver Jason Solwold made speedway and outlaws history with a preliminary night win.

Up to that point in outlaws history at the track, every sanctioned race ever run had been scored by either a series regular or a clear member of the home team PA Posse.

Solwold’s drive to victory made him the first true independent driver to ever win a Williams Grove outlaws feature main.

Another piece of history from the National Open preliminary comes from 2018 when the “Fresno Phenom,” Giovanni Scelzi crossed the country for an upset win on September 28.

Scelzi’s victory etched his name in the record books as the youngest driver ever to win a sprint car race at the historic venue at the ripe old age of 16.

In 2021, NASCAR star Kyle Larson stopped at Williams Grove and copped the preliminary before going on to claim the season title on NASCAR’s top circuit.

The 35th running of the 25-lap National Open Preliminary gets underway at 7:30 on September 30.

The winner will receive $10,000.

PITTMAN WIRES FIELD FOR NATIONAL OPEN PRELIMINARY WIN;

YODER CLOSES OUT LATE MODEL SEASON WITH THIRD VICTORY

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Daryn Pittman of Danville, Ind., returned to Selinsgrove Speedway and his former Heffner Racing Enterprises No. 27 ride to score the win in Friday night’s 25-lap National Open preliminary race for 410 sprint cars.

Pittman’s fourth career 410 sprint car win at the track, his first since 2012, was worth $6,000 and a spot in Saturday night’s redraw for the 40-lap 40th National Open.

Anthony Macri of Dillsburg, who will be seeking his third straight win in the Jim Nace Memorial National Open, was the night’s Fast Tees Fast Qualifier with a lap time of 15.803.

The National Open preliminary event, sponsored by Heister House Millworks & Cabinetry, was a first at the track since 1992.

Dylan Yoder of Middleburg closed out the late model racing season with his third win of the year in the 25-lap main event. Yoder was the only driver this season to visit Victory Lane three times.

Bryan Bernheisel of Lebanon clinched his second career Selinsgrove Ford super late model track championship worth $5,000.

Selinsgrove Speedway is back in action at 7 p.m. this Saturday, Sept. 24, with the Jim Nace Memorial 40th Annual National Open for 410 sprint cars paying $26,000 to win. The PASS 305 sprint cars will join the 410 sprint cars on the final racing card of the 2022 season. Pit and advance ticket holder gates will open at 4 p.m. with all general admission gates opening at 4:30 p.m. Qualifying is slated for 7 p.m.

Pittman started the feature race in the second position and pulled into the lead over polesitter Brian Brown. The caution flag slowed the field on lap two when Mark Smith’s car rolled to a stop in turn.

When the race resumed, Pittman continued to set a blistering pace in front of Brown and third-place starter Anthony Macri. At the completion of lap three, Macri powered into the second position and set his sights on Pittman. A lap later, fifth-place starter Brent Marks also passed Brown to take over third.

By the halfway point, the top three drivers broke away in a close race at the front of the pack. On the 14th circuit, Marks passed Macri for the second spot at the start/finish line and began to reel in Pittman.

On lap 15, Marks pulled a thrilling slider in turn four, only to have Pittman make a dive back underneath him to reclaim the lead. The race was slowed for the second time on lap 17 when Gio Scelzi’s car came to a stop in turn one.

On the final restart, Pittman held off Marks as fourth-place starter Cory Eliason showed some speed by passing Macri for the third postion.

At the checkered flag, Pittman was victorious by 2.5 seconds over Marks, Eliason, Macri and seventh-place starter Devon Borden.

Polesitter Jeff Rine powered into the lead at the start of the super late model feature with second-place starter Mike Lupfer in pursuit. On the third circuit, fifth-place starter Rick Eckert drove by Lupfer for the runner-up spot and quickly gained on Rine.

By lap 10, Eckert was in striking distance of Rine for the lead, and on lap 12 they raced side-by-side. At the halfway point, the leaders encountered traffic with Eckert taking evasive action in turn three and tagging the outside guardrail. The incident caused Eckert to lose the second position to third-place starter Dylan Yoder.

D. Yoder quickly caught Rine and made the winning pass using the inside lane off turn four on lap 17. Two laps later Eckert was back into second only to have his car develop a flat tire on lap 21.

For the final four laps, Yoder held the rest of the field at bay and posted a 1.9-second margin of victory over seventh-place starter Bryan Bernheisel, who made a late-race charged into second. Rine, Brett Schadel, and Coleby Frye rounded out the top five.

Dewease Wins Third In A Row At Williams Grove, Dietrich Puts On A Show

Steve Owings gets first 358 sprint win, Locke claims title

9/23/22

Mechanicsburg – Lance Dewease ran his string of sprint car wins to three in a row at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, scoring the Hoosier Diamond Series World of Outlaws Tune Up race worth $6,000.

The victory was his 109th at the oval and his sixth of the season there. It also earned him the 2022 Hoosier Diamond Series title.

In the 358 sprint main, Steve Owings notched his first ever oval win by jetting away off of the front row for the victory.

Danny Dietrich started on the pole of the 25-lap 410 sprint main with Dewease to his outside.

Dietrich beat Dewease off of the bottom to gain control when the race began before switching to the cushion on the third lap.

The leader entered the rear of the field on the seventh lap, which allowed Dewease to close in for control and by lap 13 the pair of leaders was nose to tail.

However a strategic series of laps by Dietrich as circuits 15, 16 and 17 was scored preserved him the lead as he chose each move masterfully to keep Dewease at bay while working his way around the backmarkers.

Going for his fourth win of the season at Williams Grove, Dietrich had broken free of Dewease and seemed headed to the win when his left rear tire disintegrated on lap 23.

This gave control to Dewease as Dietrich rejoined the field in seventh, ahead of all the cars that he had put one lap down.

Also gunning for the 2022 track title, Dietrich hit the hammer when green reappeared and went low on point leader Freddie Rahmer to pass him by in turn one before going three-wide with Dylan Norris and Justin Whittall in the second corner.

Dietrich emerged on the backchute with fourth spot but Norris made contact with Whittall sending Whittall’s No. 67 hard into the outside wall, forcing a red flag.

The new green found Dietrich again on a roll, blasting by Rahmer and TJ Stutts to gain third before running down Lucas Wolfe for second at the finish before falling just short of the spot.

Dewease took the win by 1.544 seconds over Wolfe.

Stutts was fourth and Rahmer finished fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Norris, Brent Shearer, Bryn Gohn, Rick Lafferty and Robbie Kendall.

Heats went to Dewease, Dietrich and Stutts with Dietrich winning the dash to earn the pole for the main event.

Dewease seat quick time with a lap of 16.665 seconds.

Owings blasted around the cushion of the track to win the 20-lap 358 sprint main.

He entered the rear of the field with a straightaway lead on the eighth lap and Camerson Smith racing second in the field.

The only caution flag of the race unfurled with three laps to go for a stopped Zach Newlin, placing third starter Doug Hammaker on Owings’ tail for the restart.

Hammaker blasted under Owings in the first turn when action resumed and drew even with the leader but Owings cushion prowess saw him zip by into firm command for the final three circuits.

Cameron Smith rebounded for second followed by Hammaker, Wyatt Hinkle and Jay Galloway.

Sixth through 10th went to Chad Criswell, Derek Locke, Kody Hartlaub, Nash Ely and Tyler Brehm.

Heats went to Owings, Galloway, Hammaker and Smith. Cody Fletcher won the consolation race.

With his run, Locke earned the 358 sprint track title which is his third in a row at the oval.

Brent Marks utilizes last lap pass to secure $20,000 Dirt Classic IX at Lincoln Speedway

Saturday, October 1, 2022 (3PM) AMA Motorcycles, Quads and 600 Xcel Modifieds

Tuesday, October 4, 2022 (6PM) Brian Montieth Classic: $7,000 to win 410 Sprint Only Show [rain date: October 5]

ABBOTTSTOWN, Pa. (September 17, 2022) - The last lap is the only lap that pays, and the “Myerstown Missile” Brent Marks certainly put that mentality to practice on Saturday night at the “Fabulous” Lincoln Speedway, securing his fifth Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 victory of 2022 with a last lap pass over Dillsburg’s Anthony Macri. A marquee win, to say the least, Marks earned his triumph during Lincoln’s annual Dirt Classic, locking down a $20,000 payday in the process while simultaneously increasing his overall season win total to 17.

Although lining up tenth on the Dirt Classic grid, arranged by a point system that was accumulated over qualifying and double heats, Marks commenced his march to the front right from the drop of the green, actually powering his way to a top-five position with just a quarter of the 40-lapper in the books. Meanwhile, Macri held command, doing everything he could to fend off early race challenges by defending Dirt Classic champion, Justin Peck.

Eventually working his way to third around Cory Eliason, then getting by Justin Peck for second with a slider on lap 34, Marks’ new aim was on Anthony Macri, who continued to work Lincoln’s outer line. It was the main event’s last caution on lap 36, which led to open red conditions, that set up Marks’ eventual takeover.

Working Lincoln’s bottom groove, Marks used the last handful of circuits to inch closer and closer to the No. 39M. By the time the white flag waved, Marks was on Marcri’s tail tank, driving hard into turn one to slide across the nose of the recent Tuscarora 50 champion. The move stuck, securing another crown jewel for the Myerstown, Pennsylvania, native.

Macri held on to finish second, followed by Peck, Buddy Kofoid, and Tyler Courtney.

“I didn’t expect them to open up that last red…I’m usually not a fan of that. It worked out for us tonight,” Marks said, driver of the M&M Painting & Construction/BAPS Auto Paint and Supply/No. 19M. “Man, that was a fun race. The track turned out to be excellent. Just an awesome night and I’m so proud of this team. I was actually pretty disappointed to have to start tenth because there were a lot of good cars ahead of us. I thought the track was going to be too fast to make up any ground, but we did it.”

The All Star Circuit of Champions will continue the 2022 season with a visit to the world-famous Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio, on Saturday, September 24.

1987 Williams Grove National Open Champion Joey Allen To Be 60th Anniversary Event Guest Of Honor October 1

9/18/22

Mechanicsburg – The champion of the 1987 Williams Grove Speedway National Open, Joey Allen of Hanover will be the guest of honor and honorary starter for the 60th Anniversary event coming up on Saturday, October 1 at the oval.

Allen will unfurl the green flag on the $75,000 to win, 40-lap Williams Grove Champion Racing Oil National Open sanctioned by the World of Outlaws.

The younger Allen brother will also sign autographs and meet fans at the Champion Racing Oil hospitality tent in the infield from 5:45-6:15 pm.

Back in the day when the now 62-year old Allen won his Open, the outlaws didn’t frequent the event and wouldn’t do so until 1989 but Allen wouldn’t have known it considering the drivers he had to beat back then.

“I do remember working my way up and I remember overtaking Wolfgang big time! ‘Cuz you know Wolfie was the one to beat. He was the man to beat,” Allen recalls.

The "Wolfie" he speaks of was none other than national terror Doug Wolfgang of Sioux Falls, South Dakota who was in the midst of another massive season driving for Bob Weikert in the No. 29 in 1987.

Wolfgang had won the race three years running by the time the ’87 version rolled around and he was eyeing up his fourth in a row when Allen got his chance aboard his brother Bob’s No. A1.

“I was stuck in the middle and I could run wide open. The top was giving up and I could run right through the middle. That’s why I won the race,” Allen says.

But it took more to overtake Wolfgang than just a good run though the middle lane.

“I had my hands full toward the end ‘cuz the motor started overheating and I found out my fuel was shutting off so I drove one handed for about 15 laps ‘til I had a yellow flag and then I was able to find a piece of tape and tape the fuel shut off on so it wouldn’t come loose.”

“So then I was able to drive the last 10 laps without having to drive one handed,” he says.

After starting eighth in the field, Allen would win the 75-lap main worth $13,600 over Wolfgang, Dave Blaney, Kenny Jacobs and Stevie Smith.

It was the biggest win of his sprint car career that lasted until the late 1990s.

His brother Bobby scored the prestigious event once, in 1975.

Action at the October 1 Champion Racing Oil National Open begins at 7:30 pm.

Friday night’s preliminary event, paying $10,000 to win, also gets underway at 7:30.

REED, YODER, BRENNEMAN & BISSINGER TAKE WINS

ON PA GAME COMMISSION/FOSS JEWELRS NIGHT;

SPRINT CAR NATIONAL OPEN TO CLOSE OUT SEASON SEPTEMBER 23-24

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Austin Reed of Etters powered to his first career win at Selinsgrove Speedway in Saturday night’s PA Game Commission “Race To Hunting Season” 25-lap championship race for the PASS 305 sprint cars.

Dylan Yoder of Middleburg became the third driver to repeat a super late model win at the track this year in the division’s 25-lap main event, while Trent Brenneman of Mifflintown scored his first win of the season in the 20-lap limited late model race.

Keith Bissinger of Orangeville was also a first-time winner this year in the 12-lap roadrunner feature.

Selinsgrove Speedway will close out the 2022 season with the two-day 40th National Open for 410 sprint cars Friday and Saturday, Sept. 23-24. Friday night’s race will feature the 410 sprint cars and super late models starting at 7:45 p.m. Saturday night’s finale will be the 40-lap Jim Nace Memorial National Open paying $26,000 to win plus the PASS 305 sprint cars at 7 p.m.

Austin Reed started on the pole for the 305 sprint car championship race and was trailed by second-place starter Erin Statler and sixth-place starter Josh Spicer.

The race’s only caution flag unfurled on lap 17 when Doug Dodson’s car made contact with the guardrail in turns one and two. For the restart, Reed continued to set a torrid pace in front of Spicer while a wheel-to-wheel battle unfolded for third between 10th-place starter Logan Spahr and eighth-place starter Garrett Bard.

At the checkered flag, Reed was victorious by 1.6 seconds over Spicer, Bard, Spahr, and 12th-place starter Christian Rumsey.

Polesitter Dylan Yoder powered into the lead at the start of the super late model feature. D. Yoder was chased by fourth-place starter Andrew Yoder with second-place starter Jim Bernheisel and sixth-place starter Jeff Rine in close pursuit.

Third-place starter Bryan Bernheisel showed some speed at the halfway point after dropping back a few spots on the start and advanced to second. B. Bernheisel became D. Yoder’s most serious challenger to the finish.

At the checkered flag, D. Yoder was victorious by just one second over B. Bernheisel, Rine, A. Yoder, and J. Bernheisel.

Front row starter Trent Brenneman pulled into the lead and wired the field for his victory in the limited late model race but not without serious challenges from polesitter Tommy Slanker and third-place starter Andrew Yoder.

At the halfway point, Brenneman encountered slower traffic and allowed Slanker and A. Yoder to draw closer. On the 11th circuit, A. Yoder took over the second position from Slanker and set his sights on Brenneman.

A caution flag with one lap to race set up a chase to the checkered flag between Brenneman and A. Yoder with Brenneman coming away with the victory by just .86 of a second. A. Yoder settled for second followed by Slanker, Devin Hart, and Shaun Lawton.

A former go kart champion on Selinsgrove’s one-fifth mile track, A. Yoder wrapped up his first track championship on the half-mile track in the limited late model division.

Second-place starter Dan Condo led through lap nine in the roadrunner feature until he drifted high in turns three and four and allowed fifth-place starter Keith Bissinger to make the winning pass.

Condo and fourth-place starter Nate Romig dueled for second only to fall off the pace due to flat tires from contact. At the finish, Bissinger scored the win over Bob Bussey, Scott Dunham, Cory Lindenmuth, and Tom Underwood.

Romig clinched his first career roadrunner track championship.

Lance Dewease Beats All Stars For 7K Dirt Classic Qualifier At Williams Grove, Notches Win 108

9/16/22

Mechanicsburg – Lance Dewease won his second Williams Grove sprint car race in a row on Friday night when he walked off with the All Stars Circuit of Champions Dirt Classic Qualifier, worth $7,000.

The flag to flag victory was the 108th of Dewease’s career at Williams Grove and the ninth of his career in All Stars action at the oval.

The win was also the 88th as a car owner for Don Kreitz Jr., which moves him to within four of tying Al Hamilton for the most victories at the historic oval.

The story of the 30-lap feature seemed to be the crashes that occurred within.

Dewease was only able to log three laps in the main before the red flag appeared for a flipping Justin Peck who vaulted outside of turn four.

The accident happened as Peck raced to the outside of Tyler Courtney while the pair raced for sixth and when Courtney’s car got sideways in the third corner, Peck had nowhere to go but up and over.

The restart saw the red flag again appear, this time for a flipping Rico Abreu as he raced onto the backstretch while running 11th.

Another lap did then get scored before point leader Freddie Rahmer stopped on the frontstretch with a busted front end on his mount.

After Rahmer’s car was removed from the track, Dewease tried to settle into a rhythm with TJ Stutts running second and traffic was just coming into sight for the leader when Bill Balog lost a left rear wheel near the flagstand, sending him into the inside rail.

Following Balog’s bad luck, the last 21 laps of the race went non-stop with Dewease getting into the rear of the field with 12 laps to go.

But the surface was fast and racy with backmarkers proving difficult to bypass.

The leader worked for several laps trying to put Cap Henry a lap down, allowing pursuers Stutts and Brent Marks to close a bit but after finally breaking free of Henry, Dewease was able to get away.

Marks took a shot at Stutts for second and got the spot briefly in the third turn on lap 11 only to see Stutts reclaim the position.

But Marks did finally get by for the spot with two laps to go before finishing 2.319 seconds behind at the checkers.

Stutts rode home third followed by Buddy Kofoid and Danny Dietrich.

Sixth through 10th went to Anthony Macri, Daryn Pittman, Hunter Schuerenberg, Lucas Wolfe and Gio Scelzi.

Heats went to Stutts, Schuerenberg, Marks and Peck with Dewease winning the dash to start on the pole of the feature event.

Steve Buckwalter won the B Main.

Tyler Courtney set fast time over the 33-car field with a lap of 16.409 seconds.

The event was the third for the All Stars at the track in 2022 with local drivers claiming wins in all the races.

With just three races to go in the 2022 point chase at Williams Grove, Danny Dietirch has now taken over second in the standings behind Rahmer and he is within 205 markers of the point lead.

Feature Finish

9/16/22

410 sprint cars, 30 laps: 1. Lance Dewease, 2. Bent Marks, 3. TJ Stutts, 4. Buddy Kofoid, 5. Danny Dietrich, 6. Anthony Macri, 7. Daryn Pittman, 8. Hunter Schuerenberg, 9. Lucas Wolfe, 10. Gio Scelzi, 11. Justin Peck, 12. Tyler Courtney, 13. Brian Brown, 14. Kyle Reinhardt, 15. Devon Borden, 16. Zeb Wise, 17. Cory Eliason, 18. Chad Trout, 19. Cap Henry, 20. Chris Windom, 21.

The field lined up for a complete restart with Yoder shooting out to the lead. Lawler looked to the outside of Yoder for the lead which left the door open for Bryan Bernheisel to take second.

Trever Feathers brought out the caution on lap 1 when he stopped on the front stretch. Bernheisel, Lawler, Coleby Frye and Jason Covert lined up behind Yoder for the restart. The caution flag flew again on the restart when Bernie Beard spun in turn 1.

Yoder found himself in lapped traffic on lap 24 and held the lead as he worked his way through traffic.

The top five for the final restart of the race were Yoder, Bernheisel, Covert, Frye and Emory. Emory got a nose under Frye on the restart but Frye held on to fourth.

Matt Cisney raced his way into the top five on lap 6. Steve Wilbur reeled Cisney in to challenge him for the spot.

Walker was pulling away from the field at the halfway-point.

Brian got back by Gutshall for third and started to reel in Yoder to battle for second. Brian took the runner-up spot on lap 14.

Lapped traffic loomed ahead of Walker with three laps to go. Brian was cutting into Walker’s lead but did not have enough time to make a move.

Walker scored his first career Lincoln win by 1.299 seconds over Brian. Gutshall was third and Cliff Brian Jr. was fourth. Yoder crossed the line fifth.

Tyler Knaub Scores Extreme Stock Win

Tyler Knaub started on the pole of the 20-lap feature and took the lead when the green flag waved with Jason Townsend challenging for the top spot. The caution came out on the first lap when Townsend spun in turn 4 as he battled for the lead.

Brian Walls moved up to the front row for the complete restart. Sam Rial was up to third from this fifth starting spot to challenge Walls for second. Rial took the spot on lap 2. Lap 2 also saw the yellow flag for debris on the back stretch.

Knaub led Rial, Walls, Donnie Broderick and Marshall McMullen for the restart. Rial took the lead on lap 4 and left Knaub to hold off a Walls who was looking for second.

Rial was pulling away from the field as multiple side by side battles for position ensued behind him. Lap 7 saw a caution for Jim Rost.

The top five for the restart were Rial, Knaub, Walls, McMullen and Bob Scott Jr.

Knaub and Walls continued their battle for second. Knaub would inherit the lead on lap 9 when the caution came out for the leader, Rial. Rial’s car was blowing smoke and he took his car to the pits, ending his night.

Knaub led Scott, Walls, Broderick and McMullen to the cone for the single-file restart. As the field came to the cone, rain started to fall. Scott got under Knaub to challenge for the lead and took it on lap 10. The caution came out on lap 11 when Doughtrey stopped on the front stretch. The rain was coming down harder and track officials sent the cars to the pits for a delay.

When the field lined up for the restart after the weather delay it was Scott, Knaub, Walls, McMullen and Patrick McClane at the front.

Knaub looked under Scott to challenge for the lead but Scott held the spot. Townsend was back up to fifth after having to restart at the rear after his first lap mishap.

Once again Knaub reclaimed the lead after a misfortune by the leader. Scott stopped on the track while leading on lap 14, bringing out the caution. Knaub led Walls, McMullen, Townsend and McClane for the restart.

Shane McQuay got by McClane to get into the top 5 on lap 17. Right after finding his way into the top 5, McQuay spun in turn 1 on lap 18 bringing out the caution. Will Long, Jordan Fulton and Jim Rost Jr. were also collected.

The top five for the final restart were Knaub, Walls, Townsend, McMullen and Scott. Scott looked under McMullen and McQuay made it a three-car battle for fourth.

Robbie Carroll Bests 50-car Limited Stock Field for Win

Shannon Weaver bested pole-sitter Robbie Carroll when the green flag dropped to lead lap 1. Brian Racine and Chris Anderson battled for fourth with Racine keeping the spot. Matt Chronister came to a top in turn 4 on lap 5 bringing out the caution.

Weaver led Carroll, Terry Hartlaub, Racine and Anderson for the restart. Carroll was on Weaver’s bumper and the two were wheel-to-wheel coming out of turn 4 but Weaver held the spot. Racine was working on Hartlaub for third while Carroll continued to put pressure on Weaver.

Matt Chronister stopped on the front stretch on lap 12 bringing out the yellow flag.

Hartlaub got his nose under Carroll on the restart but could not make the pass. The caution flag came out again on lap 14 when Justin Oberlin stopped on the front stretch.

Carroll got to the outside of Weaver on the restart to challenge for the lead. They raced wheel to wheel down the back stretch with Carroll taking the lead by half a car length at the line on lap 16. Just after losing the lead, Weaver had a right front tire issue which brought out the caution and ending his night. Hartlaub, who had been running third, stopped in the top of turns 1 and 2.

Carroll led Racine, Anderson, Travis Brown and Brandon Hoffner for the final restart. Anderson looked to the inside of Racine and Brown took that as an opportunity to pounce and took third on lap 17.

Racine was running with Carroll but there was not enough time to make a pass for the lead. The top five were Carroll, Racine, Anderson, Brown and Hoffner.

All Stars Diamond Series Dirt Classic Qualifier This Week At Williams Grove

Can the All Stars reach the podium?

9/11/22

Mechanicsburg – The last match-up of the season between the Pennsylvania Posse and the All Star Circuit of Champions Sprint Cars at Williams Grove Speedway is set for this Friday night, September 16 at 7:30 pm.

Presented by Land O’ Lakes, Friday night will feature the Hoosier Diamond Series Dirt Classic Qualifier for the competing factions paying $7,000 to the winner.

The winner of the 30-lap main will earn a guaranteed starting spot in the September 17 Dirt Classic at nearby Lincoln Speedway.

The mid-September special will be a “410 sprint only” racing program.

So far this season in three All Stars main events run at the oval, the Posse drivers have swept the All Stars with Brent Marks scoring in April before Danny Dietrich won both twin 20s in August.

In both of the twin 20s, All Stars point leader Tyler Courtney of Indianapolis, Indiana, had front row starting spots but he failed to capitalize.

Courtney's best finish at the track this season has been a fourth, back in April.

Currently second in All Stars points, Justin Peck has a pair of fourth place finishes on the season at the Grove in All Stars action.

All three fourths for the pair represent the highest finishes the All Stars have been able to muster at the track this year.

And so the All Stars will have some work to do against the Posse on Friday as they try to reclaim a spot on the podium before the season is finished.

Peck is likely to be the best bet for a top spot by the All Stars in the show.

Top Posse contenders will be Danny Dietrich, Lance Dewease and Anthony Macri.

Leading speedway points with a total of four races to go on the season, Freddie Rahmer is still trying to get a win at the Grove this year and it's likely he will get the job accomplished.

Adult general admission for September 16 is set at $25 with youth ages 13-20 admitted for just $10 while kids ages 12 and under are always admitted for FREE at Williams Grove Speedway.

The National Open will see the 2022 Williams Grove Speedway Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint car series champion crowned at the conclusion of Saturday’s main event.

Freddie Rahmer will be trying to wrap up the third track title of his career in the races.

Carson Macedo of Lemoore, California is the defending Champion Racing Oil National Open winner.

Macedo’s score in the event last year was his first.

Kyle Larson scored the preliminary event last year.

Adult general admission for September 30 is set at $35 with youth ages 13 – 20 priced at $15. Adult admission for October 1 is $40 with youth priced at $20.

Anthony Macri Drives From 19th to Score Record $60,000 Tuscarora 50 with All Stars

By Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, PA- (September 11, 2022)- As every season has passed and Anthony Macri has prgressed as a driver, the common question amongst racing fans each season at Port Royal has always been the same thing.

"When is he going to win the Tuscarora 50?"

Well, it finally happened. On a night that saw 'The Concrete Kid' fight adversity in the form of a wreck in his heat race following setting $1200 Packer's Concessions, LLC. and Tedd Reitz Quick time, Macri stormed forward from the 19th starting position to claim the $60,000 prize and the 55th Annual Tuscarora 50 presented by Ramsey's Car Wash and Garage and presented by Packer's Concessions trophy.

"Man, I don't know what to say...I'm pretty spe3echless right now," said Macri. "What happened there in the heat with Brian Brown was just a racing deal. I was actually crying and acting like a little girl in the lounge thinking that I threw the whole night away.

"These guys never gave up on me, and I figured I wouldn't give up on them in the feature. I kind of lit a fire under my butt and just tried to pass as many cars as I could."

Cale Thomas and Danny Dietrich led the field of 26 410 Sprint Cars to the green flag and it was Dietrich getting the initial jump on the field off the outside of turn two to lead the opening lap. Thomas, Bill Balog, Brent Marks, and Gio Scelzi settled into the rest of the top five.

12th-place starter Gerard McIntyre Jr. was the man on the move during the opening five laps, as he moved into the fifth position with 45 laps remaining in the 50-lap spectacular. However, 10th-place starter Cory Eliason came to a slow on the backstretch to bring out the caution and halt momentum.

When the field returned to green, Marks started to make his move as he got by Balog for the final podium position. Eighth-place starter Logan Wagner also cracked the top five for the first time as well, before giving the spot back to McIntyre.

McIntyre continued his Cinderella run to the front of the pack as he moved into 10th with 40 laps remaining, while Macri first made himself known to fans and competitors as he cracked the top ten on the same lap.

Over the next four laps, Marks moved past both McIntyre and Thomas for the runner-up spot, while McIntyre and Wagner also got by Thomas for third and fourth respectively. With two laps remaining before the planned lap 20 break, the leaders were all under a blanket.

Marks attempted to pass Dietrich for the top spot to hold the point at the break, by ultimately Dietrich held on before the caution flag flew. Marks, McIntyre, Wagner, Justin Whittall, Thomas, Macri, Lance Dewease, Balog and Gio Scelzi rounded out the top ten.

Following a 10 minute stoppage for adjustments and the ability to change a tire, the field returned to green flag action and it was again Dietrich holding court up front. Meanwhile, behind him it was Wagner making waves as he went fourth to second through the middle of turns one and two to grab the runner-up spot.

Marks briefly took the spot back coming to the line, but Wagner took charge the following lap and set his sights on Dietrich in attempt to earn his second consecutive Tuscarora 50 title.
It only took five laps for Wagner to power his way to the front of the field, as he capitalized on a minor slip up by Dietrich to take the point and quickly opened things up. Within two laps Wagner had approached the tail end of the field and had lapped traffic to maneuver.

However, an ugly wreck between Dylan Cisney, Freddie Rahmer and Zeb Wise brought out the red flag. Cisney's car engulfed in flames and it was both Wagner and Dietrich getting out of their car and coming to Cisney's aid, along with the track fire crew, to ensure the fire was put out. All drivers would walk away safely, but not return to the field.

The restart proved beneficial to Marks as he got around Dietrich for the runner-up spot, while Macri cracked the top five for the first time of the night with 20 laps to go. It only took two more laps for Macri to get by Mcintyre for fourth, while Dietrich got back by Marks for the runner-up spot.

With 14 laps remaining Macri cruised around Marks for the final podium spot and two laps later he got by Dietrich for second. He set his sights on Wagner up front and was cutting into his lead, but the caution flew with 10 laps to go for a slowing Tyler Reeser in turn four.

Only ten laps separated Wagner from capping off another track championship season with a $60,000 payday, but Macri had other ideas. When the field went back to green, it only took three turn's for Dillsburg, Pa. ace to slide by Wagner for the top spot and from there it was all smooth sailing.

Marks got by Dietrich for third on the same lap and one lap later he dispatched of Wagner for second. Dietrich would follow suit for the final podium spot, but everyone was living in Macri's fairytale run to the front as he cruised home to the checkered flag and the record $60,000 payday.

The win was Macri's fifth in the last six All Star Circuit of Champions sanctioned events at Port Royal and brought the fans to their feet in a history making moment. He was joined by sponsors, Jim and Sandy Kline, in victory lane as well. It was the Kline's who earlier in the week announced with the track promotional team that they were kicking in an additional $5000 to up the winner's share form $55,000 to $60,000.

Marks and Dietrich rounded out the podium, followed by Justin Whittall and Wagner. Lance Dewease, Brian Brown, McIntyre, Thomas and Balog rounded out the top ten. Macri earned the $500 Valley Supply Hard Charger award, while Kyle Moody scored the $1000 Warrior Award presented by J&S Classics with a random draw of 17. Moody capitalized on last season's win in the non-qualifier feature to score a spot in the field and the additional money.

Sye Lynch scored the $2000 non-qualifier victory this season after using a late race pass of Jeff Halligan in turn's three and four through the middle. The win guarantees Lynch a spot in next season's Tuscarora 50 and was essentially a $4000 to win event with next year's race guaranteeing at least $2000 to start.

55th Annual Tuscarora 50 Takes Center Stage at Port Royal Speedway

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway – PORT ROYAL, Penn (September 7, 2022) – All eyes will be on the Port Royal Speedway this weekend as the best drivers from across the country will gather to help close out the 168th Annual Juniata County Fair with the 55th running of the Tuscarora 50, Sept 8-10.

Sanctioned by the Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1, the annual spectacle is one of the most highly anticipated events in all the Sprint Car world and this year it’s only gotten bigger.

Sponsored by Packer's Concessions, LLC.. and Ramsey’s Car Wash & Garage, Saturdays finale will pay a whopping $55,000 to the winner and $2000 to start. Including C-Main, B-Main, a non-qualifiers feature and A-Main payouts, the one-day purse currently sits at more than $155,000, which is the largest ever offered in the history of ‘The Speed Palace’. The entire three-day payout for all events tops $230,000.

The three-race weekend kicks off Thursday with a regular All Star sanctioned event presented by Tedd Reitz paying $8000 to win. Also on the card will be the PennsValley MeatMarket PA Sprint Series 305 Sprint Cars.

Garrett Bard is the current points leader in the 305 division, and he also leads the division in wins for the 2021 season with three. He won in the series last visit to the Speedway on August 6th and holds a 115-point advantage over Doug Dodson in the standings. Ken Duke (-200), Austin Reed (-220) and Mike Alleman (-285) round out the rest of the top five.

Friday’s Night Before the 50 presented by Tedd Reitz will pay $10,000 to win and the Krill Recycling, LLC Super Late Models will also be on the card racing for $3000. This event will also be the final points race of the season for both divisions.

Logan Wagner continues to be in full control of the Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Car points battle in search of his fifth consecutive title at the Speedway. Logan’s father, Mike Wagner, sits second in the standings and trails by 150 markers. Jeff Halligan (-300), Dylan Cisney (-745) and Justin Whittall (-915) complete the rest of the top-five.

However, in the Krill Recycling Super Late Model division the battle for the championship is one of the closest battles in recent memory. Colton Flinner currently sits atop the standings by a mere 40-point margin over Gary Stuhler. Chad Myers (-600), Jason Schmidt (-885), and Mike Lupfer (-1095) complete the top-five.

Finally, the three-race weekend ends with the most anticipated event of the year, the Tuscarora 50. The crown-jewel event is the highest paying race on the All Star Circuit of Champions schedule and has been won by the who’s who of drivers over its 55 years of being held.

Kyle Moody earned the win and spot last season and is already locked into Saturday’s finale as a result. Driver’s not participating in the non-Qualifier event will receive $300 tow money, while those who run the event are guaranteed at least $450.

Last year Logan Wagner picked up his first career Tuscarora 50 title as he held off seven-time event champion, Lance Dewease, in an instant classic that saw Dewease fighting an oil leak and a late-race pass by Wagner.

Outside of the All Star regulars and the Port Royal regulars, several outside drivers such as Rico Abreu, McKenna Haase, Brian Brown, Cory Eliason, Kasey Kahne, Gio Scelzi, Sye Lynch, Aryton Gennetten plan to be in attendance.

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY

: 4 September 2022

BROWN SCORES SECOND CAREER SELINSGROVE SPRINT CAR WIN;

ECKERT WIRES FIELD FOR SECOND LATE MODEL KEISTER MEMORIAL VICTORY;

JONES EDGES OUT BISSINGER FOR THRILLING ROADRUNNER WIN

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Brian Brown of Grain Valley, Mo., made his annual trek to central Pennsylvania for the big fall races and quickly cracked the Winner’s Circle in Sunday night’s Selinsgrove Ford 25-lap main event for the 410 sprint cars at Selinsgrove Speedway.

The $5,500 win was Brown’s second career at the track and makes him an automatic qualifier for the Sept. 24 $26,000-to-win Jim Nace Memorial National Open, a race he won in his first-ever start at the speedway in 2017.

Rick Eckert of York won his second race of the season at the track in the 25-lap Ron Keister Memorial for super late models. He earned $11,052 for his second win in the tribute race and 10th overall career win at Selinsgrove.

Jake Jones of Hunlock Creek edged out Keith Bissinger of Orangeville by inches for his seventh win of the season in the thrilling 12-lap roadrunner race.

Selinsgrove Speedway returns to racing action at 6 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 17, with the PA Game Commission “Race To Hunting Season” championship race for the PASS 305 sprint cars plus super late models, limited late models, and roadrunners on Foss Jewelers Night.

Polesitter Lucas Wolfe powered into the early lead at the start of the sprint car feature. Wolfe was chased by second-place starter Brian Brown. Third-place starter Freddie Rahmer performed a great save in turn three when his car got sideways momentarily, which allowed fourth-place starter Danny Dietrich to advance to third.

Sixth-place starter Anthony Macri used the highline of the track to drive into the third position on lap six. Approaching the halfway point, Brown closed in on Wolfe in a race for the lead. The caution flag unfurled on lap 12 for Jeff Miller.

On the lap 13 restart, Brown made a dive to the inside of Wolfe entering turn one and came out of turn two with the lead. With 10 laps remaining, Brown began to stretch his lead over Wolfe, Macri, Dietrich, and fifth-place starter Justin Whittall.

The race’s final caution flag unfurled on lap 18 when Mark Smith’s car fell off the pace. On the final restart, Macri horsepowered his way into second and set his sights on Brown but ran out of laps.

Brown took the checkered flag 2.15 seconds ahead of Macri, Dietrich, Wolfe, and Rahmer.

Front row starter Rick Eckert beat out polesitter Brett Schadel for the early lead in the Ron Keister Memorial for super late models. By the completion of the first lap, fourth-place starter Jeff Rine got by Schadel for the second spot.

Mason Zeigler’s car developed a flat tire on lap 11 and brought out the caution flag. When the race resumed, Eckert continued to set a torrid pace over Rine. With 10 laps to go, third-place starter Jim Bernheisel, who fell back a few spots, showed some speed and began to pressure Rine for the runner-up position.

On a lap 15 restart, J. Bernheisel passed by Rine for second only to have Rine secure the position again on lap 21. In the final laps Eckert stretched his lead and posted a four-second margin of victory over Rine, J. Bernheisel, Schadel, and seventh-place starter Coleby Frye.

Polesitter Jake Jones dueled for the lead and win for much of the roadrunner race with fourth-place starter Keith Bissinger while second-place starter Matt Ney raced a close third.

At the halfway point of the race, sixth-place starter Levi Vial became a threat when he moved into the third position. With two laps to go, Bissinger pulled into the lead only to have Jones reclaim the front spot.

Racing side-by-side down the frontstretch for the checkered flag, Jones narrowly edged out Bissinger for the victory. Vial, Ney, and points leader Nate Romig completed the top five.

Saturday, September 24, 2022 (9AM) PA Karting Grand Nationals

Abbottstown, PA (September 3, 2022) – With his win on Saturday night Freddie Rahmer clinched his third consecutive track championship. Rahmer started the night setting quick time over the 22-car field with a lap of 13.328 seconds. Freddie made the redraw and started on the pole of the 35-lap feature, “I wish I wouldn’t have started on the pole I’d rather see the pace of the race and be able to move around more.” Troy Wagaman challenged Rahmer for the lead and after the two were wheel to wheel at the line on lap 19, Wagaman used the bottom line to get by Rahmer in turn 1, “Troy showed his nose in lapped traffic there and I figured I had to change it up.” The red flag came out before the lap was completed with Rahmer maintaining the top spot. Rahmer’s win was his sixth of the season at Lincoln, “We got fortunate enough to win that one there. I don’t think we were real good. I didn’t know where to be on the racetrack.” The race paid $7,000 to win and Rahmer earned extra bonus money for leading laps 6, 9 and 12 thanks to the Hawkins family, “Really appreciate everything they did and looking forward to it again next year.”

Utilizing the PA Speedweek format, a redraw lined up the front of the field for Saturday night’s Elijah Hawkins Memorial 35-lap feature. After setting quick time and qualifying for the feature through his heat, Freddie Rahmer drew the pole position in the redraw. Tim Glatfelter drew the number 2 pill, putting him on the outside of the front row.

Rahmer took the lead and ran high in turns 1 and with Glatfelter searching the bottom around the turns.

Troy Wagaman went to the outside of Chad Trout for third and took the spot. Dylan Norris was challenging Trout for fourth and took the spot on lap 2.

Rahmer was pulling away from the field and closing in on lapped traffic when the yellow flag came out on lap 4 for Aaron Bollinger who spun in turn 4.

The top five for the restart were Rahmer, Glatfelter, Wagaman, Norris and Trout.

Rahmer had a good restart and Wagaman was all over Glatfelter for second and took the runner up spot coming out of turn 4. Norris looked to follow and got under Glatfelter to take third at the line on lap 6.

Wagaman was not far behind Freddie as they both ran the high line around the track. Lapped traffic loomed ahead as Wagaman reeled in Rahmer. The red flag came out when Domenic Melair flew through the air in turns 1 and 2 on lap 10.

Rahmer led Wagaman, Norris, Trout and Glatfelter for the restart. Rahmer drove through the middle of 1 and 2 and Wagaman was right there with him. Glatfelter got by Trout to reclaim fourth on the restart.

Rahmer could not shake Wagaman. Troy was sticking with him as they closed in on lapped traffic yet again. Wagaman used the bottom line to keep pace with Rahmer. The two raced side by side for the lead at the line on lap 19. As the leaders raced into turn 1 Rahmer made contact with Chris Arnold, a lapped car, sending Arnold for a wild ride bringing out the red flag.

Rahmer had the lead for the restart with Wagaman, Norris, Glatfelter and Cory Haas lined up behind him. Rahmer went to the bottom to take Wagaman’s fast line away on the restart. With Wagaman forced to go high it allowed Norris to stick with him.

Haas drove by Glatfelter down the back stretch to take fourth on lap 21. Trout got back by Glatfelter for fifth. Haas was up to fourth but pulled in on lap 23. Chase Dietz was up to fifth from 16th starting spot on lap 24 and was working on Trout for fourth.

Rahmer encountered lapped traffic again on lap 28. Wagaman was closing in with five laps to go as Rahmer worked through heavy lapped traffic. Bollinger stopped on the front stretch bringing out the caution on lap 32.

Rahmer led Wagaman, Norris, Trout and Dietz to the cone for the late-race restart. Rahmer had a solid start and would go on to win the $7,000 Elijah Hawkins Memorial by 1.602 seconds over Wagaman. Norris finished third. Dietz was the hard charger driving through the field from 16th to fourth. Chad Trout completed the top five.

Wyatt Hinkle Wires Field in 358 Feature

Wyatt Hinkle and Jordan Strickler shared the front row of the 20-lap feature. Hinkle took the lead when the green flag dropped but the yellow came out before a lap was completed when Jake Eldreth spun in turn 2.

The field lined up for a complete restart. Once again Hinkle took the lead at the start. This time the red flag came out on the first lap when Jordan Strickler and CJ Tracy flipped in turn 1. Cameron Smith, Justin Foster, Steve Owings and Jeff Rohrbaugh were also involved.

The third time was the charm for the start of the race. Hinkle took the lead again on the third attempt with David Holbrook running second and Frankie Herr third. Herr slid Holbrook in turn 4 to take second, Nat Tuckey followed and took third. Chris Frank entered the mix and was in third on lap 2. Holbrook, Tuckey, Kody Hartlaub and Logan Rumsey raced for fourth with Tuckey holding the spot. Frank got by Herr for second.

Lapped traffic loomed ahead of Hinkle at the halfway point. Hinkle found himself in heavy lapped traffic on lap 13 with Frank closing in. Hartlaub reeled in Herr for third with 5 laps to go. Frank got his nose under Hinkle in turn 1 on lap 16 but did not make the pass. Hartlaub got by Herr for third on lap 17.

Hinkle scored his fourth career Lincoln Speedway victory by getting to the checkered flag .965 seconds ahead of Frank. Hartlaub crossed the line third and Herr was fourth. Holbrook completed the top five.

Travis Perry’s Late Race Heroics Lands Him in Victory Lane

Shaun Abney and Mike Racine made up the front row of the Legends 20-lap feature on Saturday night. Abney and Racine raced wheel to wheel with Devon Friese making it a three-car battle for the lead. Abney led lap 1 with Racine in second and Travis Perry up to third.

A 10-car pile up on lap 1 brought out the red flag. Cody Altland flipped coming out of turn 2 and the other cars involved were Lincoln and Seth Kearchner, Logan Carbaugh, Scott Spidle, Justin Wagaman, Quinn Trimmer, Joshua Schrum, Jeremy Ott and Richie Dobson.

The top five for the restart were Abney, Racine, Perry, Friese and Travis McClelland.

Perry got by Racine for second and stuck his nose under Abney for the lead but did not make the pass. Friese and McClelland were battling wheel to wheel for fourth. Perry and Racine raced side by side for second on lap 5.

Bill Diehl, McClelland and Racine raced three-wide for third with McClelland taking the spot. Abney barely held on to the lead on lap 8. Perry took the top spot on lap 9.

McClelland got by Abney for second and Diehl followed for third. McClelland reeled in Perry to battle for the lead and the two raced wheel to wheel down the back stretch.

McClelland got by Perry to take the lead on lap 13 right before the caution came out for Friese who had spun in turn 1.

McClelland led Perry, Diehl, Abney and Stephen Wurtzer for the restart. Perry looked to the outside over McClelland but McClelland pulled away. Wurtzer got by Abney for fourth. Perry was back putting pressure on McClelland for the lead as Wurtzer continued his charge to the front, getting by Diehl for third.

In a thrilling finish, Perry took the lead coming out of turn 4 on the last lap, beating McClelland to the checkered flag by only .024 seconds. Wurtzer crossed the line third and Diehl was fourth. Chris Transeau finished fifth.

Satterlee lined up from the pole position alongside of Berry and it was Satterlee getting the early jump to lead the opening lap. Third-place starter, Ferree, settled into the runner-up spot followed by Berry, Norris and Eckert.

Little changed over the opening 11 laps of the 33-lap feature event, until Jared Miley came to a slow exiting turn two to bring out the caution.

While Satterlee remained steady up front following the return to green-flag action, Berry was the benefactor of the restart as he slid by Ferree for the runner-up spot.

Eighth-place starter, Gary Stuhler, moved into the fifth position on the restart as well, while ninth-place starter Colton Flinner moved to sixth.

It only took two more laps for Norris to dispatch of Ferree for the final podium spot and the driver of the No. 72 set his sights on Berry. Just past the halfway mark Norris made his move on Berry for the runner-up position and with 10 laps to go the margin between him and Satterlee was just 1.138 seconds.

Norris closed the gap several times over the final ten circuits, but Satterlee kept opening the distance throughout lapped traffic.

When the checkered flag dropped, Satterlee held a 1.552 advantage over Norris and the only thing left to do was to take a trip to victory lane to celebrate with the Renninger family.

Flinner, Stuhler, fast-time award winner Hayes Mattern, Mason Zeigler and Tyler Emory completed the top ten. Ross Robinson finished 14th after starting 20th on the grid to earn the night’s Georges Used Cars Hard Charger Award.

Several other driver incentives were paid out thanks to various sponsors and the hard work and dedication of the Renninger family.

Spike Moore shocked the local Selinsgrove Ford Limited Late Model field of cars to pick up his first career Port Royal Speedway victory over Dillan Stake, Andrew Yoder, Trent Brenneman and Devin Hart.

The Limited Late Model Butch Renninger Memorial victory was worth $4,333, which was the second highest paying winner’s share for the event in the history of the event.

Stake and Matt Parks lined up on the front-row for the event and it was Stake getting the jump on the field. However, it only took two turns for Moore to make his presence known as he jumped from his third starting position to claim the lead on the opening lap.

That was all Moore needed as he cruised the rest of the way. Stake stayed steady behind and was ready to pounce at any mistake, but Moore made all the rights moves through lapped traffic on the way to the victory.

Yoder and Hart put on a great battle behind the front two for the final podium position, and it was ultimately Yoder grabbing the position.

Shawn Shoemaker, Justin Kahn, Parks, Daulton Bigler and DJ Myers completed the top ten. 12th-place starter Kenny Yoder scored the Dedicated Nursing Associates $100 Hard Charger Award, while the Renninger family handed out multiple contingency awards courtesy of various sponsors throughout the night.

Devon Borden scored his second career Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Car victory in dominating fashion over Danny Dietrich, Justin Whittall, Lance Dewease and Brian Brown.

The win was worth an increased $5000 as part of the Juniata County Fair opener and the feature event went non-stop.

Rick Lafferty and Borden lined up on the front-row, but it was third-place starter, Brian Brown, using an inside move in turn’s three and four to pull ahead of Borden by a nose coming to the flagstand on the opening circuit.

Sixth-place starter, Danny Dietrich, moved into the top five on lap three, while Whittall got by Borden for the runner-up spot as well. Dietrich continued his march forward as he took fourth on lap five and two laps later Brown was busy in lapped traffic up front.

The lapped traffic allowed both Whittall and Borden to close fast and by lap 10 the three were all under a blanket on the track. Borden got by both Whittall and Brown one lap later to take the top spot.

Dietrich moved past Brown for the final podium spot one lap later, while Borden had already opened up a 1.850 second advantage over Whittall. With ten laps remaining, Borden had stretched the lead to 4.057.

Whittall cut the distance nearly in half with six laps remaining, but he gave up the runner-up spot to Dietrich with four laps to go. That was as close as he’d get though, as Borden crossed under the checkered flag to give his new Shuttlesworth-Stehman Racing their first win as a team.

Dylan Cisney charged forward from 18th to sixth to earn the Valley Supply $500 Hard Charger Award while Blane Heimbach, Mike Walter, Lafferty and Mike Wagner completed the top ten. 11th-place finisher Jeff Halligan earned the $1000 J&S Classics Warrior Award via random draw.

Dewease Scores For Old Car Owner In Grove Harz Tribute Race, Locke Locks Up 358 Sprint Match Race

9/2/22

Mechanicsburg – Lance Dewease won one for his old No. 88H car owner Joe Harz at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, taking the Joe Harz Tribute Race for 410 sprints worth $6,000.

In other action, the Match Race for 358 sprints went to Derek Locke for his third oval win of the season.

Dewease started the 25-lap Harz Tribute on the pole flanked by Lucas Wolfe and when the green flag dropped Dewease drove into the lead with Wolfe and sixth starter Brian Brown in tow.

Danny Dietrich started fifth in the field and got by Brown on the second lap before going to work on Wolfe.

He first got around Wolfe in turn three on the sixth tour only to see Wolfe reclaim the spot before Dietrich made the move stick a lap later as the leader began working the rear of the field.

After sweeping the twin 20’s a week earlier and overtaking Dewease for the second win, it looked like it may again be Dietrich’s night and it may happen again to the chagrin of Dewease.

After getting into second, Dietrich cut six-tenth of a second off of the leader’s advantage and he was drastically biting into the rest of Dewease’s lead when the caution flag unfurled on lap 10.

The caution turned red when fire erupted on Austin Bishop’s machine.

When action resumed and with clear track, Dewease changed his line around the speedway and took to the middle groove on the restart allowing himself to get away from Dietrich.

However Dietrich kept pace and when the leader again entered the rear of the field on lap 16, he again began biting into Dewease’s advantage.

But another untimely caution with six laps to go again cleared the track and Dewease pulled away to the win at the new green.

The victory was the fourth for Dewease and his Don Kreitz- owned team at the track this season and it was his 107th at the oval overall in his career.

Dietrich was second followed by Wolfe, Brown and Chase Dietz.

Sixth through 10th went to Freddie Rahmer, TJ Stutts, Devon Borden, Chad Trout and Tyler Ross.

Heats went to Wolfe, Dietrich and Brown.

Dewease set quick time with a lap of 16.925 seconds.

Polesitter Matt Findley led just the first circuit of the 25-lap Match Race for 358 sprints before Derek Locke took over for what would be the $2,021 win.

Matt Findley challenged Locke for the lead on a lap two restart only to see Locke pull away out of the second turn.

Sixth starter Cody Fletcher took second from Findley with 15 laps to go but failed to challenge Locke.

Doug Hammaker started 10th in the field and worked the top of the speedway to get up to third and challenge for second briefly.

Kody Hartlaub was fourth followed by Findley.

Sixth through 10th went to Chris Frank, Wyatt Hinkle, Chad Criswell, Matt Campbell and Tyler Brehm.

Heats went to Hinkle, Locke, Hartlaub and Kyle Denmyer with Brett Wanner taking the consolation

Some 37 cars took part in the event that posted a total purse worth over $20,000.

Time trials, heat races, and a B-main will be the qualifying format. The Open will also be the final points race of the season for the 410 sprint cars.

The Apache Tree Service PASS 305 sprint cars will compete in their final 20-lap race of the season at the track as part of Saturday’s event.

Saturday pit and advance ticket sale gates will open at 4 p.m. with all general admission gates opening at 4:30 pm. The rain date for Saturday's show only will be Sunday, Sept. 25, if needed.

LINCOLN SPEEDWAY

Abbottstown, PA

JUSTIN PECK SCORES ONE FOR THE ALL STARS WITH KRAMER KLASH WIN

Saturday, September 3, 2022 (7:30PM) ELIJAH HAWKINS MEMORIAL: 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints and Central PA Legends

Saturday, September 10, 2022 (7:30PM) Super Late Models, Wingless Sportsman, Extreme Stocks & Limited Stocks (ARCH Night)

Saturday, September 17, 2022 (7PM) Dirt Classic IX presented by Schmuck Lumber Company [rain date: Sunday, September 18]

Abbottstown, PA (August 27, 2022) – Justin Peck took his throwback Kramer Williamson helmet up with him for a wing dance to celebrate his Kramer Klash victory on Saturday night, “This is pretty cool man. We got Kurt, Kramer’s son, working on the car and wearing the throw back Kramer helmet tonight was pretty cool. It means a lot to them and it means a lot to me.” Not only was Peck’s win a big one for the All Stars, it was an emotional one for the Williamson family since Kramer’s son, Kurt, works on the car, “This is one of those races that you mark at the beginning of the year on the calendar ‘must win’ and luckily we were able to get it done.”

Peck started on the pole of the 35-lap, $7,300 to win feature and would lead every lap. Despite wiring the field, it was not an easy drive to victory as Peck had Freddie Rahmer hot on his heels most of the race. Rahmer got by Peck for the lead on a late-race restart, but Peck battled back to reclaim the top spot before they crossed the line, “I love coming to Lincoln Speedway. Hats off to the track crew they gave us a bad ass race track. These fans here are some of the best in the country. I love coming to Pennsylvania because all these guys are crazy.”

Justin Peck and Giovanni Scelzi were scheduled to share the front row of Saturday night’s 35-lap Kramer Klash, but Scelzi was penalized two spots for being late to the track. That put the current Lincoln Speedway points leader, Freddie Rahmer, on the front row with Peck. Peck led the field into turn 1 with Rahmer, who is still in search of his first Lincoln Speedway All-Star win, hot on his tail. Zeb Wise was running third and Scelzi was fourth.

Rahmer was running the bottom to stick with Peck when the yellow flag waved on lap 3 when TJ Stutts stopped in turn 4.

Peck led Rahmer, Wise, Scelzi and Danny Dietrich to the cone for the single-file restart. Rahmer went low in turns 1 and 2 to challenge for the lead but Peck held the top spot.

Dietrich got by Scelzi for fourth. Peck entered lapped traffic on lap 8 and quickly found himself in heavy traffic.

Zeb Wise flipped in turn 1 bringing out the red flag on lap 12. Wise had been running third.

The top five for the restart were Peck, Rahmer, Dietrich, Scelzi and Hunter Schuerenberg. Peck had a solid restart. Scelzi and Schuerenberg battled for fourth. Scelzi held off Hunter and went to challenge Dietrich for third.

Tyler Courtney was looking for a spot in the top 5. Once again Peck found himself in leavy lapped traffic allowing Rahmer to close in. Lap 23 saw another caution when Brandon Rahmer slowed in turn 2.

Rahmer stuck with Peck on the restart and pulled a slider in turns 1 and 2 for the lead. Peck took the top spot back at the line with Rahmer looking for another opportunity to pounce. Dietrich entered the picture and the top three raced for the lead. Courtney found his way into the top five on lap 25. Scelzi got by Dietrich for third on lap 28.

Lapped traffic came into play one last time with 5 laps to go, but Peck had put plenty of distance between him and Rahmer.

Peck scored his first Kramer Klash win by 1.555 seconds ahead of Rahmer. Scelzi crossed the line third and Dietrich was fourth. Courtney completed the top five.

Scelzi set quick time over the 39-car car field with a lap time of 13.383 seconds. Heat race wins went to Hunter Schuerenberg, Justin Peck, Danny Dietrich and Zeb Wise.

YODER RETURNS TO LIMITED LATE MODEL WINNER’S CIRCLE FOR FOURTH TIME;

SPAHR HOLDS OFF CHALLENGERS FOR FIRST CAREER 305 SPRINT CAR WIN

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Blane Heimbach of Selinsgrove wired the field for his second 410 sprint car victory in a row at Selinsgrove Speedway in Saturday night’s 25-lap 42nd Annual Jack Gunn Memorial on The Acme Companies Night.

Heimbach, who won the Gunn Memorial four times as a 358 sprint car event, collected $5,000 for his first win in the tribute race to the late Hall-of-Fame promoter in a 410 sprint car. He also strengthened his lead in the Lelands.com 410 sprint car point standings in the chase for the $5,000 series championship.

Andrew Yoder of Middleburg returned to Victory Lane for the fourth time this season at Selinsgrove in the 20-lap limited late model race. The win marked the seventh overall this season for Yoder.

Logan Spahr of Lewisberry drove to his first career win in the 20-lap PASS 305 sprint car main event after a thrilling battle.

Selinsgrove Speedway will host a special Labor Day holiday weekend racing program on Selinsgrove Ford Night at 7 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 4, featuring the 410 sprint cars, super late models, and roadrunners.

Blane Heimbach drew the pole for the start of the sprint car feature and powered into the lead with second-place starter Mark Smith chasing him. Sixth-place starter Devon Borden quickly advanced to third and kept the leaders in in his sights.

The event’s first caution flag unfurled on lap three when Derek Hauck’s fuel cell broke loose. On the ensuing restart, Heimbach continued to lead Smith, Borden, and fourth-place starter Steve Buckwalter.

Landon Myers brought out the caution flag on lap five when his car made contact with the inside guardrails in turns three and four. On the lap six restart, Smith put in a bid for the lead in turn three only to have Heimbach hold off the challenge.

At the halfway point, Heimbach, Smith, and Borden broke away from the rest of the pack. In the second half of the race, the battle to watch was between Smith and Borden for the runner-up position.

In the final laps, Heimbach stretched his lead and posted a two-second margin of victory over Smith, Borden, fifth-place starter Lucas Wolfe, and Buckwalter.

Outside front row Devin Hart pulled into the early lead in the limited late model feature with polesitter JR Toner in tow. By lap six, Hart developed a straightaway lead over Toner and seventh-place starter Andrew Yoder.

In the next few laps, Yoder got by Toner for second and set his sites on Hart in lapped traffic. On the 12th circuit, Hart and Yoder were side by side racing off turn four for the lead. Entering turn one, Yoder made a dive to the inside of the track to secure the lead.

Once in front, Yoder stretched his lead to a straightaway and posted the win over Hart, Daulton Bigler, JR Toner, and Shaun Lawton.

Polesitter Tyler Snook bolted into the lead at the start of the 305 sprint car race. Snook and second-place starter Logan Spahr dueled for the front spot for the first two laps until Spahr secured the lead.

The red flag stopped the race on lap three for a three-car melee on the frontstretch. When the race resumed, Spahr continued to set the pace with eighth-place starter Doug Dodson advancing to second and 10th-place starter Garrett Bard powering into the third position.

With five laps to go, the leaders began to encounter slower traffic and a close battle unfolded for the top positions. At the checkered flag, Spahr was victorious by about 10 car-lengths over Dodson, Bard, Snook, and Zach Rhodes.

Dietrich Scores Impressive Sweep Of All Star Gunn Memorial Twin 20s At Williams Grove

Gettysburg driver just fourth pilot to record sweep since 1961, takes $8,500 for victories

8/26/22

Mechanicsburg – For just the fourth time in history one driver swept the twin 20s for sprint cars at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night and his name was Danny Dietrich.

Dietrich took home $4,000 for each win plus a $500 bonus from Mamma’s Pizza for scoring the sweep.

And to make Dietrich’s feat even sweeter, the victories came over the All Stars Circuit of Champions Sprint Cars Series in the 40th annual Jack Gunn Memorial.

The Gettysburg driver earned the pole for the start of the first twin feature and would lead the entire distance after starting beside All Stars points leader Tyler Courtney.

Dietrich saw Bill Balog come to second on the second circuit but while Balog tried to make tracks after the leader he was being tracked down himself by sixth starter Brent Marks.

Balog and Marks exchanged second spot on lap eight just as Dietrich entered traffic.

Marks was finally able to race into second with seven laps to go and set his sights on the pacesetter.

Meanwhile, during the next four laps, drivers Courtney, Lance Dewease and Justin Peck staged a spirited race for third, at times going three wide for the top spots before a lone caution flag broke up the fracas with three laps to go.

The new green saw Dietrich stay safely ahead of Marks, who would cross the finish line 1.169 seconds behind.

Dewease seized two spots on the restart to end up third followed by Peck and Courtney.

Sixth through 10th went to Balog, Antony Macri, Gio Scelzi, Freddie Rahmer and Dylan Norris.

Dietrich pulled an inversion of six for the second twin 20 placing Balog on the pole for the start but Courtney would lead the first circuit before the caution flag unfurled for a stopped Freddie Rahmer in the third turn.

Fourth starter Dewease raced into second on that first lap using the bottom groove and when action resumed after the caution, he chased Balog down the backchute before swooping under him in the third turn to net control with Dietrich up to third.

Another yellow flag then appeared with three laps recorded when Courtney suddenly stopped in the third turn.

Dietrich blasted by Balog for second on the restart and gave chase of Dewease.

It took the driver of the Kauffman No. 48 just two laps to run down the leader and make a race winning, inside pass as the pair raced into the first turn.

And once in front Dietrich pulled away during the mid stages but Marks was on the move and soon got by Dewease for second.

Marks made a nuisance of himself during the later stages but Dietrich persevered to get the impressive sweep by .441 seconds.

And Dewease again was third at the finish thus completing in an identical podium to the first race.

Peck was again fourth and Balog was fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Macri, Chase Dietz, Scelzi, Zeb Wise and Norris.

Dietrich’s wins were his second and third of the season at the track and the 27th and 28th of his career at Williams Grove.

They were also the 12th and 13th of his overall season.

With the sweep, Dietrich became just the fourth driver to score the feat in 45 contests of the twin 20s since they began in 1961.

Previous sweeps of the twin 20s were scored by Bud Folkenroth in 1963, Van May in 1983 and by Fred Rahmer in 1995.

The races were run in honor of late promoter Jack Gunn who heralded the track during the 1960s and 1970s before begin felled by cancer in 1980 at the age of 46.

Heats for the 33-car field went to Marks, Peck, Balog and Dietrich with Steve Buckwalter taking the B Main.

Dietrich won the dash to earn the pole for the first feature.

Zeb Wise set quick time with a fast lap of 17.191 seconds.

Sept. 29 @7:00 pm SCDRA FWD-4 Cylinder $2500-to-win + Central PA Legends

Justin Peck scores $6000 Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions win at Bloomsburg Fair Raceway; Wingless Sportsman main to Tony Jackson

(BLOOMSBURG 8-24-22): The Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 rolled into Bloomsburg Fair Raceway on Wednesday for a $6000-to-win main event which was part of the ASCoC Tri-State Summer Swing and scoring his second straight and series leading seventh win of the season was Monrovia, Indiana’s Justin Peck.

In the accompanying Wingless Sportsman feature Tony Jackson of Newville scored the nonstop 20-lapper.

When the green flag dropped to begin the ASCoC feature outside front row starter Justin Peck outran pole sitter Cap Henry as the field exited Turn 2 while Kyle Reinhardt and Danny Dietrich went toe-to-two for second.

Three laps into the event the caution was out for Jordon Thomas who spun in Turn 4. When the action resumed Peck once again led while Reinhardt, Dietrich, point leader Tyler Courtney and April Bloomsburg winner Anthony Macri made up the top five.

On a lap four restart Courtney advanced to third and then began a torrid battle with Reinhardt for second.

Meanwhile leader Peck was solidly running a good race and by lap nine had approached slower traffic. As he did the Reinhardt/Courtney battle was quite heated and when they too reached the back-markers the runner-up spot flipped over to Courtney.

Once in second Courtney worked feverously to race with Peck and had a few opportunities late in the going when lapped cars came into play. But, once all was cleared Peck showed the way and held on for a car length margin of victory.

“There was pretty much just a lane and a half where you could enter in and get away from the lapped traffic and you kind of had to be conservative at times,” said Peck, who sits second in points to Courtney.

“The longer the race went we just kept digging deeper and deeper and figure out how to get around. It was tough but our 13 car was fast all night.”

Marci raced his way into third by the midway point but could advance no further. Dietrich and Reinhardt would round out the top five.

Heat race wins went to Zeb Wise, Reinhardt and Dietrich.

The Wingless Sportsman made an impressive debut at Bloomsburg as they reeled off their 20-lap feature in a caution free time of 6:25.

At the outset second starting Trent Yoder grabbed the early lead while a fast moving Jackson took control of second and within short order was nipping at the heels of the leader.

Continuing to keep up the pressure, Jackson pulled alongside Yoder going down the back straight on lap six and by the time they competed the circuit he had the lead.

Afterwards he set sail but behind him there ensured a terrific battle for second between Yoder and Eric Jennings. After running off several side-by-side laps Jennings was able to hustle by on lap 11. He then began to pull close to Jackson and made some thrilling attempts near the end of the race.

However, once Jackson realized he was in jeopardy of being passed he turned on the afterburners and shook off Jennings to take a half-second victory. Yoder settled for third with Brett Perigo and Steve Wilbur competing the top five.

Heats wins went to Jackson and Yoder.

COMING EVENTS:

Aug 24 @7:00 pm Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 $6000-to-win + wingless Sportsman

Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 Sprint Cars head to Bloomsburg Fair Raceway on Wednesday for $6000-to-win main event

(BLOOMSBURG 8-22-22): The Bloomsburg Fair Raceway is all set for a big night of open cockpit racing on Wednesday evening, August 24 with the national touring Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions (ASCoC) presented by Mobil 1 with a $6000-to-win main event.

Joining the Sprints will be the Super Sportsman cars who will be making their first appearance at the 3/8-mile dirt oval.

The All-Stars raced at Bloomsburg back on April 21 with Anthony Macri of Dillsburg scoring his fourth 410 Sprint win in a row at the time.

The Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 Sprint Car Series is one of the oldest traveling Sprint Car organizations and is a staple of grassroots, open-wheel racing. Formed in 1970 by Bud Miller, the series has largely been considered the first 'outlaw' Sprint Car organization of the modern era.

After a 10 year stint as owner of the All Stars, Miller passed control of the series to Bert Emick in 1980, a reign that would continue through 2002. Guy Webb then purchased the series from Emick in the summer of 2002 and served as the series President for the next 12 years. Motorsports entrepreneur Tony Stewart agreed to terms with Guy Webb to become the sole owner of the original winged sprint car tour in January of 2015.

Wednesday’s event is part of the 10 race ASCoC Tri-State Summer Swing. This past Sunday was rained out at New York’s Weedsport Speedway. That makes Bloomsburg the third race of the swing which includes additional stops at Bridgeport Speedway in Swedesboro, NJ on Thursday and then back to Pennsylvania for consecutive nights at Williams Grove, Lincoln and Bedford Speedways.

The action at Bloomsburg is expected to be a hard-fought as a number of the popular Pennsylvania Posse will planning to clash with the All Stars.

Tyler Courtney of Indianapolis, IN heads into Bloomsburg as the current ASCoC point leader and a five time winner this season. Monrovia, Indiana’s Justin Peck is the most recent winner on the tour held on August 20 at Utica-Rome Speedway in Vernon, NY. Peck is also second in points.

Grandstands will open at 5:00 pm. Adult admission is $25, students and seniors $15. Pits will open at 4:00 pm. Pit admission is $35.

Logan Wagner Scores Fifth Win of the Season; Kenawell, Bard and Bright Also Earn Open Wheel Madness Wins

By Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, PA- (August 21, 2022)- Logan Wagner held off the field and the rapid loss of air coming from his right-rear tire to claim the victory in Weikert's Livestock 410 Sprint Car competition Saturday night.

The win was Wagner's fifth of the season at the Juniata County oval and was worth $5000 as part of the track's Open Wheel Madness presented by Bobby Rahal Toyota of Lewistown promotion. Dylan Cisney, Blane Heimbach, Mike Wagner and Devon Borden rounded out the top five.

Ryan Taylor and Mike Walter II lined up on the front row for the A-main and it was Taylor leading the field of 24 Sprint Cars to the line at the conclusion of lap one over fourth-place starter Jeff Halligan.

Taylor paced the field early, but gave way to a surging Halligan out of turn four with 19 laps remaining. Taylor stayed within striking distance of Halligan over the following lap, but both their run's at victory would come to an end before another lap could be completed.

Lapped car, Austin Burke, got turned around in between turn's one and two and left both drivers with nowhere to go. Halligan nearly slipped by on the outside, but sustained front end damage and Taylor slid sideways into Burke as well. Both cars would not return to the field.

Their misfortune proved to be Walter's good luck as he was gifted the lead as a result and it was him leading the field back to the green-flag action over Heimbach and Mike Wagner. However, his lead was short lived as it only took three turns for Heimbach to overtake Walter for the top spot and the Selinsgrove, Pa. ace would be credited with leading lap eight.

Walter chased Heimbach over the next six circuits before making a move for the top spot with 11 laps to go. However, as the leaders were also contesting lapped traffic as well, Walter got into the back-end of a lapped car on the backstetch and the contact as a result created front-end damage. He attempted to regain his composure, but the damage caused him to pop a wheelie on the frontstretch and he pulled into the infield as a result while running second.

With Walter off track, sixth-place starting Logan Wagner acquired the runner-up position and he set his sights on Heimbach. Eighth-place starter Dylan CIsney was also on the move and he moved into the final podium position with nine laps to go.

It only took four more laps for Wagner to overtake Heimbach for the top spot and three laps later Cisney followed suit. It appeared the fans might see a repeat of Cisney's miracle driver forward from a few week's ago, but a lapped car stalled his momentum on the white flag lap.

The hometown kid gave it the old college try though and he got a huge run down the backstretch coming to the checkered flag. But the run wasn't enough, as Wagner took the checkered by a margin of .692 seconds. The timing of the final lap proved perfect as Wagner's tire was going flat as he paced the field and headed to victory lane to celebrate.

AJ Flick, Trenton Sheaffer, Dan Shetler, Tyler Bear and Nick Swiegart completed the top ten. Sweigart also earned both the $500 Valley Supply Hard Charger Award and the J&S Classics $1000 Warrior Award via a random draw.

Stevie Kenawell and Garrett Bard both scored feature victories in the Penns Valley Meat Market PA Sprint Series 305 Sprint Car division Saturday night. Kenawell's victory was his first career triumph at the Speedway and came as part of the night's regularly scheduled event, while Bard's was part of a make-up feature event form an earlier season rainout.

Mike Melair led the opening lap of the first feature after starting f0orm the fourth position and he led the opening 10 laps before a caution for a slowing car in turn two halted his momentum.

Kenawell, who started 10th on the grid, moved into the final podium position following the halfway mark restart. However, 12th-place starter Bard had other ideas as he went fourth to second to take over the runner-up spot on the top side.

Kenawell slipped back by Bard for second with seven laps to go, while Melair held a 1.198 second advantage with five laps remaining. It only took two more laps for Kenawell to make the lead disappear as he got by Melair and cruised home for the victory . Melair, Bard, Dave Wickham and Kruz Kepner rounded out the top five.

Bard was able to redeem himself in the second feature as he capitalized on a front-row starting spot to bring home the victory as part of the make-up feature event. Austin Reed, Tyler Snook, Ken Duke and Doug Dodson rounded out the top five.

Alex Bright charged forward form the eighth starting position to eqrn the USAC East Coast Sprint Car feature win over Steven Drevicki and Mark Smith.

Bobby Butler and Smith started form the front row and it was Butler leading at the completion of the opening circuit. Meanwhile, Bright was already on the move as he passed four cars on the first lap to sit on fourth.

Smith got by Butler for the lead on the second circuit, while Bright cracked the podium as well for third. It only took one more lap for Bright to dispatch of Butler for second and two more laps to get by Smith for the lead.

Drevicki, who started 10th on the grid, moved into a podium position on lap eight and two laps later he got by Butler to move into the final podium spot. However, Bright was on a mission up front and maintained a 1.8 second advantage at the halfway mark. Lapped traffic came into play, but Drevicki would never seriously contend as Bright cruised home for the win. Drevicki, Smith, Briggs Danner and Kenny Miller completed the top five.

40th Annual Grove Gunn Memorial Honors HOF Promoter Friday

Event celebrates 40th running in 2022

8/21/22

Mechanicsburg - This Friday’s twin 20s for the All Stars Circuit of Champions Sprints at Williams Grove Speedway will honor late, great, promoter Jack Gunn.

The Jack Gunn Memorial twin 20-lap mains will each pay $4,000 to win with total purses for each feature worth over $20,000 each.

First run in 1983, the Gunn Memorial honors late Williams Grove promoter Jack Gunn, a native of Hancock, Maryland.

The 2022 event will be the 40th annual Jack Gunn Memorial and the winner’s list is impressive to say the least.

Bobby Allen was the first winner in 1983 with additional names on the win list like Frankie Kerr, Jason Johnson, Lance Dewease, Greg Hodnett, Fred Rahmer, Daryn Pittman, Keith Kauffman and many others.

However no driver has claimed more Gunn Memorials over the years than the now retired Don Kreitz Jr.

Jack Gunn was a Hall of Fame Promoter who heralded the speedway as promoter from 1967 until his untimely death from cancer at the age of 48 in 1980.

He began working at the track during the early 1960s as an announcer and honed his skill on the microphone while eventually relaying his talents into the oval’s captain.

It was during his tenure at the helm of Williams Grove Speedway that Gunn rose to prominence on the local and national scene and he took the facility with him.

During his career at Williams Grove, Gunn also promoted with much success at other area tracks.

Gunn’s mark on both Williams Grove and the region itself was to help raise sprint car racing to not only a weekly division but a premiere weekly headline division at that.

Gunn was feted nationally as 1979 Promoter of the Year.

While at the top of his game, he not only stood at the helm at both Williams Grove and Selinsgrove Speedways, but he was also doing the job at Hagerstown, (Maryland) and Penn National Speedways.

In his day, Jack Gunn was known as the most powerful promoter in the East.

And it is that reputation and skill that Williams Grove Speedway will honor yet again this week with the running of the All Stars Jack Gunn Memorial Twin 20s.

Gates will open at 5:30 pm.

Adult general admission is set at $25 with youth ages 13 – 20 admitted for just $10. Kids ages 12 and under are always admitted for FREE at Williams Grove Speedway.

Match Race for 358s also on program

8/21/22

Mechanicsburg - One of the most notable car owners in Williams Grove Speedway history will be honored at the track coming up on Friday night, September 2 when the oval presents the Hoosier Diamond Series Joe Harz Tribute Race for the 410 sprint cars.

The Harz Tribute Race for the Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint cars will pay $6,000 to the winner and time trials will be used to set the heat starting grids.

Also on the program will be the make-up Match Race for 358 sprint cars offering a total purse worth over $20,000.

Harz, owner of the famed yellow No. 88H sprint car for the better part of two decades spanning portions of the 1980s, 90s and 2000s, will be feted prior to the races with a meet and greet in the speedway infield beginning at 5:45 pm.

Interviews with former Harz drivers, mechanics and Harz himself will also be conducted between 5:45 and 6:45.

The interviews will be streamed live on Facebook via BeerHill Gang TV.

Racing action gets underway at 7:30 pm.

After fielding modifieds for several years, Harz launched into the sprint car world in 1984 with Meme Desantis of Temple wheeling the car.

After that drivers such as Kramer Williamson, Fred Rahmer, Richard Lupo, Kenny Adams, Sean Michael, Mike Wagner and Lance Dewease wheeled the car among a few others.

Harz recently turned age 75 and the Elmer, New Jersey native is still going strong, attending races throughout the season and across the nation.

At Williams Grove alone his cars copped 41 main events including victories in the National Open, Summer Nationals, season opener, Early Bird Championship and in the Mitch Smith Memorial.

STEVE BUCKWALTER WINS BILLY KIMMEL MEMORIAL ON MESSICK’S EQUIPMENT

NIGHT AT WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY

-Shane Clanton wins $10,000 in World of Outlaws Late Model Feature.

MECHANICSBURG, PA – It has been a very trying year for Steve

Buckwalter and the Clair and Jan Ritter Team.

Buckwalter, of Royersford, turned things around a bit Friday night as

he captured the Billy Kimmel Memorial and $6,000 in the 25-lap sprint

car feature. It was his 12th career Grove win.

“It has been a long time coming,” Buckwalter said. “We’ve been really

struggling with the car.”

In the 40-lap main event for the World of Outlaws Late Model series,

it was Shane Clanton picking up the $10,000 win.

Buckwalter started second and raced into the lead over Alan Krimes and

Devon Borden.

“I knew Borden would be fast, and also Krimes, I figured if he beat me

to turn one, it would be really tough to get around him.”

A fourth turn accident brought the race under caution with two laps

completed. Brent Shearer, Robbie Kendall and Gordon Senft were

involved. Everybody was okay and only Kendall didn’t restart.

Buckwalter controlled the restart as Borden took second from Krimes.

Ninth starter Chase Dietz was into the top four and 17th starter

Freddie Rahmer into seventh with six laps completed.

Meanwhile at the front, Borden was running Buckwalter down as they

blasted around the cushion.

Buckwalter reached the back of the field and the slower car of Austin

Burke. This brought Borden right to his bumper as they raced down the

frontstretch. Borden ducked under Buckwalter entering turn one as

Buckwalter also tried to pass Burke on the inside. It was very tight

racing off the second corner with Buckwalter holding on.

“I was catching that lapped car and I didn’t realize Borden was that

close,” Buckwalter said. “I knew I wasn’t close enough to slide the

lapped car, but I wanted to see how good my car stuck. I got in there

and slid up to him like I intended to, but then I seen Borden and had

to get on the gas. I picked up the pace and ran it a little harder and

the car handled it.”

Tyler Reeser stopped entering turn three bringing out the yellow with

11 laps completed.

Buckwalter’s restart was good enough to keep Borden from tying a first

turn slider. Rahmer raced into fifth.

Buckwalter pulled away a bit from Borden following the restart and was

in control as Dietz took third from Krimes.

Dylan Norris slowed on the backstretch bringing the field under

caution again with 10 laps to go.

Borden was closer on this restart, but couldn’t clear the pass as

Buckwalter raced off the second corner with the lead.

The yellow flew again with eight laps to go for Rick Lafferty.

This gave Borden another shot, but it was Buckwalter staying strong on

the cushion in turns one and two.

Rahmer ducked under Dietz for third spot.

Lance Dewease, who started 18th after being collected in a heat race

crash, raced into fifth. He took fourth from Dietz as Buckwalter built

a comfortable lead again.

Dewease went after Rahmer for third. He’d take the spot entering turn one.

It was Buckwalter scoring the win by 2.7 seconds over Borden and the

hard-charging Dewease. Rahmer and Dietz completed the top five. Kyle

Moody, Krimes, TJ Stutts, Jordan Givler and Shearer rounded out the

top 10.

Krimes won the first heat after a side-by-side battle with Reeser.

Buckwalter won the second heat over Givler. A total of 20 sprint cars

were on hand.

The World of Outlaw Late Model series made their annual visit to

Williams Grove. Ryan Gustin and Shane Clanton shared the front row for

the 40-lap, $10,000 to win feature.

Clanton grabbed the lead and had the race under control early, but Max

Blair closed on him with 15 laps to go. Gustin also moved back into

the picture.

As they began closing on slower traffic with 10 to go, the yellow flag

flew. Clanton got a good restart keeping Blair and Gustin at bay.

Clanton streaked away from there scoring his second win of the season

and career series win number 48. Blair, Gustin, Tanner English and

Rick Eckert completed the top five. Eddie Carrier Jr., series point

leader Dennis Erb Jr., Josh Richards, Dale Hollidge and Jason Covert

rounded out the top 10.

Erb set quick time over the 3R0-car late model field with a lap of

19.636. Erb, Clanton, and Gustin won the heat races. Kyle Hardy won

the Last Chance Showdown.

Saturday, August 27, 2022 (7:30PM) ALL-STAR CIRCUIT OF CHAMPIONS “KRAMER KLASH” for 410 Sprints (TT) ($7,300 to win) and EMMR Exhibition

Saturday, September 3, 2022 (7:30PM) ELIJAH HAWKINS MEMORIAL: 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints and Central PA Legends

Abbottstown, PA (August 13, 2022) – Troy Wagaman had been knocking on the door of his first 410 win this season and on Saturday night he finally parked it in victory lane for the first time in his career. Before moving to the 410 sprint division last year, Wagaman had plenty of success in his 358 sprint car, earning six wins at Lincoln in the division.

Wagaman lined up 10th for the start of the 30-lap feature and quickly fell back to 12th. Troy worked his way back up through the field and was running second when Robbie Kendall, the leader, stopped on the track with a fire under the car. Wagaman inherited the lead on lap 22. Alan Krimes was in second when Troy jumped the cushion in turn 4 with three laps to go, but Wagaman had a big enough lead to hold on, “I’m out of breath. I’ve never drove so hard the last five laps.”

In victory lane Troy shared what his first 410 win meant to him, “Its amazing. I never thought it would come this year we’ve been so close, seconds and thirds.”

Michael Millard and Chris Arnold were on the front row for the start of the feature. Millard took the lead when the green flag waved and Riley Emig looked under Arnold for second. Zane Rudisill and Robbie Kendall battled for fourth with Kendall taking the spot. Brandon Rahmer followed and got by Rudisill for fifth.

The first caution came on lap 3 when Dylan Norris found himself facing the wrong way on the back stretch.

Millard led Arnold, Emig, Kendall and Rahmer to the cone for the restart.

Millard got a solid jump on Arnold. Kendall got under Emig as they raced down the back stretch, but Emig held the spot.

The yellow flag waved again on lap 4 when Chad Trout and Tim Glatfelter both spun in turn 4. Trout and Glatfelter had both been running in the top 10.

Kendall under Emig down the backstretch – Emig held onto the spot

Millard had another solid restart. Once again Kendall got under Emig on the back stretch and this time it stuck and Kendall took third. Robbie made quick work of Arnold to take second.

Alan Krimes had worked his way up through the field and raced side by side with Arnold on lap 9 for third. Kendall closed in on Millard and was on his bumper. Robbie slid Millard in turns 1 and 2 and took the lead on lap 14. Arnold followed to move back into second.

Kendall caught lapped traffic on lap 15. By the midway point of the race Wagaman had made his way into the top five and by lap 17 Troy was running third. By lap 19 Wagaman was in second and was closing in on Kendall as they worked their way through lapped traffic.

While leading Kendall’s car went up in smoke on the backstretch on lap 22 bringing out the caution.

Wagaman inherited the lead with Krimes, Arnold, Rahmer and Siegel running in the top five.

Troy went high and Krimes opted to go low on the restart. Krimes had a good run off turn 2 and nearly took the lead as they raced into turn 3 but Wagaman held on to the top spot.

Wagaman jumped the cushion in turn 4 with three laps to go but Krimes was too far back to make a move.

Troy won his first career 410 feature 1.247 seconds over Krimes. Arnold finished third and Freddie Rahmer earned hard charger honors driving from 19th to fourth. Siegel completed the top five.

Bill Diehl Victorious with Last Lap Pass

Diehl led, Bob Stough, Logan Carbaugh, Travis McClelland and Jeremy Ott for the restart. Stough was on Diehl’s bumper when the caution came out again on lap 4. The yellow waved for Cory Phillips who sat sideways in turn 4. The caution came out again on the restart when Wayne Dutterer

Stough got his nose under Diehl again on the restart and again the yellow waved for Stoppard.

The top six, Diehl, Stough, Carbaugh, McClelland, Ott and Stephen Wurtzer, started pulling away from the field after the restart.

McClelland looked under Carbaugh down the back stretch but did not make the pass. The two continued to race side by side for third with McClelland taking the spot on lap 8.

The yellow flag came out on lap 9 for Cody Altland. Stough was still on Diehl’s bumper searching for a way to get the lead.

Just as Stough had a solid run on Diehl the caution flag flew on lap 12 for Wayne Dutterer as he fell off the pace and stopped on the back stretch.

Shaun Miller brought out the yellow on lap 15 with a spin in turn 4.

Stough led McClelland, Stough, Ott and Carbaugh to the cone but there was another caution on the restart when Joshua Schrum and Richie Dobson spun in turns 1 and 2.

McClelland looked to the inside of Diehl on the restart when yet another caution came out. This time it was for Vincent Wenrich in turn 1.

Wurtzer drove by Carbaugh to enter the top five and Ott got by Stough for third.

McClelland looked to the inside of Diehl on the back stretch and took the lead on lap 17. Ott followed getting by Diehl for second.

The final caution came on lap 18 when Logan Carbaugh stopped in turn 1. Carbaugh had been running fifth.

McClelland, Ott, Diehl, Stough and Seth Kearchner lined up for the green, white, checkered finish.

Ott looked to the outside of McClelland for the lead with McClelland barely holding the advantage at the white flag. Ott continued his quest to take the lead using the outside line, but in an exciting finish, Diehl got by both McClelland and Ott coming out of turn 4 to the checkered flag.

Diehl won in thrilling fashion, just .075 seconds ahead of Ott. Stough crossed the line third and McClelland finished fourth. Kearchner completed the top five.

Steve Wilbur Wins in Wingless Super Sportsman

Matt Ondek led the field into turn 1 with Tony Jackson in second and Michael Smith in third after the green flag dropped for the 20-lap feature. Smith got under Jackson but Jackson was able to hold on to second.

Jackson got high in turn 4 allowing Steve Wilbur to get by and take over the second spot. Jackson held off a charge from Smith for third.

The yellow flag flew on lap 3 when Brad Shenk and Ryan Rutz got turned around in turn 4.

The top five for the restart were Ondek, Wilbur, Jackson, Smith and Cliff Brian Jr. Jackson went to the outside on the restart and got by Wilbur coming out of turn 2. Ondek, Wilbur and Jackson raced three-wide down the front stretch for the lead with Jackson having the advantage at the line. Wilbur took the lead coming out of turn 2 and would hold on to it to take over the top spot on lap 5.

Jackson stayed on the top of the track running the high line trying to reel in Wilbur. Tony moved down to the bottom to block a charge by Ondek.

Ondek got by Jackson for second on lap 14. Jackson stayed close to try and reclaim the runner up spot and he did just that on lap 17.

Wilbur scored the win by a commanding 4.711 seconds over Jackson. Ondek crossed the line third and Cliff Brian Jr was fourth. Billy Brian Jr finished fifth.

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Dylan Yoder of Middleburg drove to his first Selinsgrove Speedway super late model win of the season Saturday in the division’s 25-lap main event on Fairfield Chevrolet Night

Yoder became the ninth different super late model winner in 10 races to date. The $3,000 victory was his 17thcareer in late models at the track.

Garrett Bard of Wells Tannery returned to Victory Lane for the third time this season at Selinsgrove in the 20-lap PASS 305 sprint car event.

Taylor Farlling of Carlisle held off three-time winner Andrew Yoder of Middleburg for his first career Selinsgrove win in the 20-lap limited late model feature.

Levi Vial of Bloomsburg won his third 12-lap roadrunner race by just inches over five-time winner Jake Jones of Hunlock Creek.

Selinsgrove Speedway returns to racing action at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 27, featuring The Acme Companies 42nd Annual Jack Gunn Memorial for 410 sprint cars paying $5,000 to win plus PASS 305 sprint cars and limited late models. Track gates open at 5 p.m. There will be no racing on the half-mile track on Saturday, Aug. 20.

Andrew Yoder started the super late model feature in the second position and won the battle for the early lead into turn one over polesitter Deshawn Gingerich. Dylan Yoder started fourth and passed Gingerich for second on lap four.

On the fifth circuit, D. Yoder made the winning pass when A. Yoder drifted high in turn four and made contact with the wall. At the same time fifth-place starter Jim Bernheisel drove into the second position.

At the midway point of the race, an intense battle for second unfolded between Bernheisel, Gingerich and A. Yoder as D. Yoder continued to stretch his lead.

D. Yoder took the checkered flag by 4.9 seconds over J. Bernheisel, A. Yoder, ninth-place starter Dan Stone, and Gingerich.

Polesitter Garrett Bard wired the field for the win in the 305 sprint car feature but not without some challenges during the race. Second-place starter Logan Spahr chased Bard through traffic for the entire distance.

At the halfway point, Bard was leading Spahr, sixth-place starter Doug Dodson, eighth-place starter Ken Duke, and fourth-place starter Dustin Young.

With one lap to go the caution flag regrouped the field for a chase to the checkered flag. Bard held off the field to post a .94 of a second victory over Spahr, Dodson, Duke, and Young.

On the third attempt to start the limited late model feature, outside front row starter Taylor Farlling powered into the lead and was chased by third-place starter Daulton Bigler for the first seven laps before fifth-place starter Andrew Yoder advanced to second.

At the halfway point, Farlling began to encounter slower traffic as A. Yoder closed the gap. On a lap 15 restart, A. Yoder pulled ahead of Farlling in the turns only to have Farlling race back underneath to maintain the front spot.

At the checkered flag, Farlling was victorious by just 1.27 seconds over A. Yoder, snapping his three-race winning streak. Devin Hart, Trent Brenneman and Shaun Lawton rounded out the top five.

In the roadrunner feature, front row starter Levi Vial pulled into the early lead with fourth-place starter Keith Bissinger in tow. Leading feature winner Jake Jones started the race in the third position and drove by Bissinger for second on the third lap.

For the rest of the distance, Jones chased Vial at the front of the pack. On the final lap, Jones made a last-ditch effort to pass Vial for the lead and win on the inside racing off turn four but came up short by inches at the finish line.

Bissinger settled for third with points leader Nate Romig and Bob Bussey rounding out the top

five.

In addition to the 410 Sprint Cars, the IMCA Modifieds will be part of the program in a $1,000 to win event.

Abbottstown, PA (August 6, 2022) – Freddie Rahmer’s fifth win of the season came on Saturday night during DCS School of Driving Night. It was Rahmer’s second win in a row at the 3/8-mile oval. Rahmer lined up ninth for the start of the 30-lap feature and found his way to the front of the field on lap 14.

Cory Haas hunted down Rahmer in lapped traffic and made a late race charge for the lead. Rahmer knew he had to run high to black the challenge, “I was just trying to maintain. We had a bunch of yellows, I didn’t know how close they were. I knew once I got off the top I knew they’d be right there, I just tried to get back to it as soon as I could.”

When asked about his recent success in victory lane Rahmer shared, “We just got to take it one week at a time. It’s a wave it goes back and forth.”

Dalton Dietrich and Brie Hershey started on the front row for the drop of the green flag. Hershey led the field into turn 1 with Dietrich holding off both Michael Millard and Riley Emig as they challenged for second. Rahmer was up to fifth by lap 3 after getting by Robbie Kendall. Freddie then took fourth on lap 5 after getting by Tyler Esh coming out of turn 2. After the pass, Esh and Kendall made contact with Esh coming to a stop in the top of turn 2 bringing out the caution.

Hershey led Dietrich, Emig, Rahmer and Kendall to the cone for the restart. Brie got a good jump as Rahmer looked to the outside of Emig for third. Emig held off Rahmer at the line by inches on lap 6 but could not hold him off the following lap. Rahmer took third and went to work on Dietrich for second.

Kendall got by Emig for fourth. Haas took fifth from Emig on lap 9. Robbie tried a slider on Rahmer for third but could not make the pass. Rahmer pulled a slider on Dietrich for second, taking the spot on lap 13. Rahmer made quick work of Hershey making the pass for the lead on lap 14. Kendall was right behind him, but the caution came out on lap 14 for debris on the track. Despite making the pass for second, Kendall lined up for the restart behind Hershey since the lap had not been completed.

Rahmer got a good jump on the field with Haas looking to the outside of Kendall for second. Haas got under Kendall in turns 3 and 4 on lap 16 to move into third right before Kendall fell off the pace bringing out the caution.

The top five for the restart were Rahmer, Hershey, Haas, Matt Campbell and Dylan Norris. Once again Rahmer had a good start. Haas took second in turns 1 and 2 from Hershey and Campbell followed moving into third.

Chris Arnold did a 360 spin in turn 2 on lap 20 bringing out the caution. Rahmer paced the field ahead of Haas, Campbell, Chase Dietz and Norris for the restart. Haas stuck with Rahmer in turns 1 and 2. Dietz got by Campbell for third at the line.

Lapped traffic came into play with 4 laps to go. Haas got to the inside of Rahmer as they worked through lapped traffic but Rahmer held the lead. Freddie pulled a wheelie at the flagstand as the white flag waved allowing Haas to take one last stab at the win.

Rahmer crossed the line .528 seconds ahead of Haas. Dietz was third and Campbell finished fourth. Norris completed the top five.

Cameron Smith Victorious for Second Time in Rookie Campaign

John Sharpe and Tylar Rutherford shared the front row for the start of the 20-lap feature.

In only his second start in the division, Rutherford led the field through 1 and 2. The yellow flag waved before a lap was completed when Jeff Rohrbaugh and Steven Cox got together in turn 2.

The field lined up for a complete restart with Sharpe leading the field into turn 1 this time. Rutherford and Sharpe raced wheel to wheel down the back stretch for the lead. Rutherford got sideways in turn 3 and collected Doug Hammaker, bringing out the caution again before a lap was completed.

The third time was a charm with Travis Scott sharing the front row with Sharpe. Scott took the lead and Cameron Smith went to the outside of Sharpe to take second at the line.

Steve Owings and Cody Fletcher raced for fourth behind Sharpe. Owings moved into third and Fletcher followed taking fourth. Smith took the lead on lap 3 from Scott.

Smith entered lapped traffic on lap 7. Jayden Wolf got by Owings on the back stretch to take third on lap 8. Smith was in heavy lapped traffic as Wolf closed in on Scott behind him. Wolf was searching for a way around Scott when the caution came out on lap 14 for Kane Eichenlaub who spun in turn 3.

The top five for the restart were Smith, Scott, Wolf, Owings and Fletcher. Wolf was off the pace on the restart and brought out the caution again on lap 15.

Smith had a good jump on the restart with Owings sticking with Scott to battle for second.

Smith won his second race of the season by 1.472 seconds over Scott. Owings crossed the line third and Fletcher was fourth. Chris Frank finished fifth.

Richie Hitzler Wins in Xcel 600 Modifieds

Pole-sitter, Andy Ressler took the lead at the start but Austin Daniels drove by Ressler on the first lap to lead lap 1. Korey Inglin got by Ressler to move into second.

Richie Hitzler was up to third and dove under Inglin on lap 5 to take second. Hitzler then looked under Daniels for the lead in turns 1 and 2. The two raced wheel to wheel down the back stretch with Hitzler holding the advantage at the line to take the lead on lap 7.

After the pass for the lead, the yellow flag waved for Chris Smith who spun in turn 4.

The top five for the restart were Hitzler, Daniels, Inglin, Geoffrey Sutton and Ressler. Inglin was working on Daniels for second on lap 8 but Daniels held him off at the line. Inglin would take the spot on the next lap coming out of turn 4.

Lap 10 saw the yellow flag when Chris Frable and Keith Inglin spun in turns 1 and 2.

Hitzler led Inglin, Daniels, Sutton and Tyler Bartik for the restart. The caution came out on the restart for debris in turn 3.

Daniels, Sutton and Bartik raced three-wide for third with Daniels holding the spot. Bartik moved up to fourth and then took third on lap 14.

Scott Heisey brought out the caution on lap 14. Sutton was putting pressure on Daniels for fourth with two laps to go when the caution came out for Frable and Heisey.

Hitzler, Inglin, Bartik, Daniels and Sutton lined up for the green, white, checkered finish.

Daniels and Sutton were wheel to wheel for fourth on lap 19 when Ingiln, who was running second, spun racing for the lead. Inglin spun again on the restart.

Hitzler won the feature with Bartik crossing the line second. Daniels finished third and Sutton was fourth. Kenny Harris completed the top five.

Aug 24 @7:00 pm Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 $6000-to-win + wingless Sportsman

Bloomsburg Fair Raceway falls to rain; Fan Appreciation Night rescheduled for August 18

(BLOOMSBURG 8-6-22): No sooner was the Bloomsburg Fair Raceway pit area filing up with race cars in anticipation of Fan Appreciation Night, a rainstorm suddenly blew through the area and abruptly put an end to any racing activities for the evening.

With just $5 admission for a four division show the raceway was looking forward to hosting a very affordable night of racing. Even though weather reports indicated that little to no rain would pass over Bloomsburg things unfortunately took a change for the worse when the late afternoon rain storm not only hit but remained stalled for some time afterwards.

All is not lost, however, for Fan Appreciation Night as the entire program, consisting of the USAC East Coast Sprints, ARDC Midgets, 305 Sprints and the FWD 4-Cylinder Stocks, will be moved to Thursday, August 18 with the same $5 general admission price tag.

The 358 Modified event that was slated for that date will not be run. After conferring with several Modified teams about the event it was decided to best hold off for the time being with that race due to a number of impending factors.

Gerard McIntyre Outlasts the Field and Mother Nature to Earn First Career Port Royal Victory

By Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, PA- (August 7, 2022)- Gerard McIntyre beat the field and Mother Nature to claim his first career Port Royal Speedway feature victory Saturday night in Weikert's Livestock 410 Sprint Car competition.

The win was worth $4000 and came over a hard charging Jeff Halligan and Blane Heimbach.

Tyer Reeser, making his first start behind the wheel of the Aaron Long owned Steve Smith tribute No 19t, and Kody Lehman led the field of 24 Sprint Cars to the green flag and it was Lehman getting the early jump on the field to lead the opening lap. McIntyre, who started fourth on the grid, settled into second followed by Devon Borden.

Eighth-place starter Heimbach was a man on a mission early as he cracked the podium on lap two, while McIntyre only needed one more lap to dispose of Lehman to take the top spot with 22 laps remaining.

Borden and Heimbach battled it out for the final podium position, with Borden claiming the spot on lap four and three laps later he wheeled the Stehman/Shuttlesworth Racing No 23 into the runner-up position. Heimbach followed suit to grab the third position on the following lap from Lehman.

One lap later it was ninth-place starter Halligan cracking the top five, while the leaders were starting to close in on lapped traffic with 15 laps to go. Borden remained hot and heavy on the tail tank of McIntyre over the next five circuits before he pulled the trigger and slid in front of the leader in between turn's one and two.

It appeared that Borden was going to be the new leader, however the move didn't stick and he made contact with the outside guardrail and got turned around to bring out the caution and give to spot back to McIntyre.

McIntyre controlled the field on the restart, while Heimbach and Halligan battled it out for the runner-up spot behind him. 12th place starter Danny Dietrich went eighth to sixth on the restart, while Michael Walter slid into fourth as well.

Dietrich remained steady in his pursuit to the front as he cracked the top five for the first time with eight laps remaining, while McIntyre was approaching lapped traffic again.

Heimbach and Halligan were starting to chip away at McIntyre's lead, which was slightly more than a 1.4 second advantage with five laps remaining. Dietrich was making himself part of the picture as well as he moved into fourth with four laps remaining.

The top four all raced in and out of lapped traffic and it appeared it would be McIntyre claiming the victory with little challenge after he took the white flag, but ninth-place running Logan Wagner came to a stop exiting turn four with a flat right-rear tire to set up a one lap battle for the win.

McIntyre led the field of hungry drivers back to the green flag and while Heimbach was primed to make a move for the lead, it was Halligan thwarting his efforts as he got around him in turn's one and two on the outside to grab the runner-up spot. The battle for second allowed McIntyre the space he needed to breathe a little easier and he cruised home for the victory behind the wheel of the No. 33 car that's only housed a block from the Speedway.

Halligan, Heimbach, Dietrich and Walter rounded out the top five, while Mike Wagner, Dan Shetler, Kassidy Kreitz, Lucas Wolfe and Jason Shultz finished out the top ten. Wolfe earned the $1000 J&S Classics Warrior Award via random draw, while 14th-place finisher Ryan Linder earned the $500 Valley Supply hard Charger after starting 24th on the grid.

Sprint Car Results- 1. Gerard McIntyre Jr; 2. Jeff Halligan; 3. Blane Heimbach; 4. Danny Dietrich; 5. Mike Walter II; 6. Mike Wagner; 7. Dan Shetler; 8. Kassidy Kreitz; 9. Lucas Wolfe; 10. Jason Shultz; 11. Justin Whittall; 12. Tyler Walton; 13. Derek Locke; 14. Ryan lInder; 15. Trenton Sheaffer; 16. Austin Bishop; 17. Tyler Bear; 18. Devin Brenneman; 19. Logan Wagner; 20. Tyler Reeser; 21. Kody Lehman; 22. Steve Buckwalter; 23. Devon Borden; 24. Derek Hauck

The Krill Recycling, LLC Super Late Model and PennsValley MeatMarket PA Sprint Series 305 Sprint Car portion of the night's event were lost as a result of significant rain showers that hit the Speedway after only four laps of the Super Late Model A-main.

The 305 feature event will be made up in two weekends when the series returns to the track as part of Military Appreciation Night on August 20th, while

 

 

ECKERT SCORES FIRST SELINSGROVE LATE MODEL WIN OF SEASON;

AMANTEA WINS FIRST CAREER USAC EAST COAST SPRINT CAR RACE;

JONES DRIVES TO SIXTH ROADRUNNER VICTORY

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Rick Eckert of York powered to his first Selinsgrove Speedway victory of the season in Saturday night’s 30-lap Renegades of Dirt Late Model-sanctioned race on Hilly Ridge Sales & Service Night.

Eckert’s ninth career win at the track and fourth overall this season was worth $4,000.

Joey Amantea of Mt. Pocono scored his first career sprint car win in the 20-lap USAC East Coast wingless 360 sprint car race, while Jake Jones of Hunlock Creek won his sixth race of the year in the 15-lap roadrunner championship.

Selinsgrove Speedway returns to racing action at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 13, with a four division show of super late models, PASS/IMCA 305 sprint cars, limited late models, and roadrunners on Fairfield Chevrolet night. Gates will open at 5 p.m.

On the start of the super late model feature, fifth-place starter Coleby Frye got momentarily sideways in turns one and two and collected Jim Yoder, Brett Schadel, and Tyson Mowery.

When the race resumed, second-place starter Rick Eckert pulled into the early lead and was chased by fourth-place starter Jeff Rine, who got by polesitter Ryan Montgomery for the runner-up position on the restart.

At the completion of lap five, the top five consisted of Eckert, Rine, Montgomery, fifth-place starter Shaun Jones, and third-place starter Bryan Bernheisel.

B. Bernheisel moved into third at the halfway point as 10th-place starter Dylan Yoder began to show a lot of speed in the second half of the race and powered into the top five. With 10 laps to race, Eckert was navigating his way through lapped traffic.

On a lap 24 restart, D. Yoder horsepowered his way into third and set his sights on Eckert and Rine. At the finish, Eckert scored the win by 3.6 seconds over Rine, D. Yoder, B. Bernheisel, and seventh-place starter Jim Bernheisel.

Polesitter Mike Thompson powered into the lead at the start of the wingless sprint car main event. Third-place starter Joey Amantea moved into the runner-up at the start and engaged in a high-speed chase with Thompson.

By lap five, a war on wheels unfolded between Thompson and Amantea as current points leader and seven-time winner Briggs Danner advanced to third and made it a close three-car battle at the front of the pack.

At the halfway point, Amantea was pulling sliders on Thompson for the lead only to have Thompson power back underneath for the front spot. On the 14th circuit, Amantea pulled a slider in turn two for the lead and made light contact with Thompson, who lost two spots as a result of the tangle.

With Amantea setting the pace, Danner set his sights on the leader. At the checkered flag, Amantea was victorious by just .97 of a second over Danner, Thompson, Steve Drevicki, and Ed Aikin.

Fourth-place starter Jake Jones passed second-place starter Tom Underwood at the start/finish line to lead the first lap of the roadrunner championship race.

Jones went on to wire the field with Underwood in pursuit until the final lap when ninth-place starter Keith Bissinger made a late-race charge into second.

Jones was victorious by a comfortable margin over Bissinger, Underwood, Matt Ney, and Levi Vial.

On top of the exciting racing action on the track, Pennian Bank will host a Kids Money Scramble on the track during intermission as well.

Gates Open at 4:00pm and racing is set to kick off at 7:00pm.

Logan Wagner still sits on top of the point standings as he looks for his fifth consecutive championship at the Speedway with his dad, Mike Wagner in second by 200 points. Jeff Halligan (-290),Dylan Cisney (-520) and Lucas Wolfe (-610) round out the top five.

Rick Eckert picked up his second Krill Recycling Super Late Model victory last weekend as well as part of the Dream race and the $5000 that went with it. However, the biggest news of the night was the continued bad-luck stretch of early season point leader Colton Flinner.

Flinner still holds the points lead, but saw his lead shrink to a mere 10 pint advantage over the ageless Gary Stuhler. Chad Myers (-505), Dylan Yoder (-650) and Jason Schmidt (-765) complete the top five.

The 305 Sprint Cars will compete in their fifth event of the season and point leader Garrett Bard will be looking for his third consecutive victory at the Speedway.

FREDDIE RAHMER SCORES RACK DADDIES RUMBLE TITLE BELT; Jeff Rohrbaugh Wins 358 Sprint Feature; Bobby Beard Dominates

Saturday, August 6, 2022 (7:30PM) DCS SCHOOL OF DRIVING NIGHT: 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints and 600 Xcel Modifieds plus York County Racing Club Night

Saturday, August 13, 2022 MOTOSPORTS NIGHT: 410 Sprints, Central PA Legends and Wingless Sportsman

Saturday, August 20, 2022 (7:30PM) BARRY SKELLY MEMORIAL: 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints (Summer Series) and ARDC Midgets

Abbottstown, PA (July 30, 2022) – The first Rack Daddies Rumble title went to Freddie Rahmer. After Rahmer put on the title belt in victory lane he shared, “That was a tough race. I didn’t have a good start. I lost positions at the beginning and just kept fighting. I don’t know that we were the best car.”

Rahmer lined up eighth for the start of the 30-lap, $5,000 to win feature. Glenndon Forsythe took the lead early in the race with Chad Trout taking over the top spot on lap 6. Trout looked to be running away from the field but two late race cautions allowed Rahmer to close in and eventually take the lead with the white flag waving.

Chase Dietz had also worked his way to the front of the field and was tracking down Trout along with Rahmer, “Just getting Chase there before the last yellow was key. Trout was going pretty good.”

Rahmer was lined up second behind Trout for the final restart of the race, “The last restart I just rolled my wing front. Just figured I’d do what he didn’t do down here.”

Saturday’s win was Rahmer’s fourth of the season at Lincoln and first since June 11th.

A pair of number 5 cars shared the front row for the Rack Daddies Rumble, John Walp and Glenndon Forsythe. Forsythe took the lead in turn 2 from Walp and Mark Smith followed taking second at the line on the first lap. Chad Trout drove to the outside of Walp in turns 1 and 2 to take third. Trout drove by Smith on the back stretch to take second on lap 4.

Trout closed in on Forsythe as Forsythe was blowing smoke out of the car. Trout took the lead on lap 6. Chase Dietz was all over Smith for third and took the spot.

Aaron Bollinger was sitting sideways in turn 4 on lap 8 bringing out the caution.

The top five for the restart were Trout, Forsythe, Dietz, Smith and Rahmer. Trout held the lead with Dietz looking to the outside of Forsythe but could not make the pass. Rahmer drove by Smith for fourth which led to a three-car battle for second.

Dietz slid Forsythe for second on lap 10 and Rahmer followed, taking the spot coming out of turn 4 on lap 11.

Lapped traffic became a factor halfway through the feature at lap 15. At first Rahmer stuck with Dietz as they worked through lapped traffic but Dietz started to pull away from Rahmer on lap 22 as he reeled in Trout.

Trey Hivner spun in turn 4 on lap 22 bringing out the yellow flag.

Dietz looked to the outside of Trout on the restart with Chad holding onto the lead. Rahmer then looked to the outside of Dietz for second and could not make the pass.

Dietz and Rahmer continued to battle for second, which is exactly what Trout needed to pull away from the field. Rahmer took the runner-up spot by half a car length at the line on lap 25.

Tyler Ross and Smith got together in turn 2 as they battled for fourth bringing out the caution on lap 28.

Trout, Rahmer, Dietz, Kyle Moody and Forsythe lined up for a green, white, checkered finish. Rahmer tried the outside on the restart but Trout pulled away coming out of turn 2. Rahmer stuck with him and took the lead at the line as the white flag waved.

Rahmer crossed the line .831 seconds ahead of Trout for the win. Dietz finished third and Moody was fourth. Forsythe rounded out the top five.

Riley Emig was the hard charger, making his way to a 13th place finish after starting 22nd. John Walp was the Lucky Buck award winner after finishing 16th.

Jeff Rohrbaugh Wins 358 Sprint Feature

Eddie Strada started on the pole of the 20-lap 358 Sprint feature on Saturday night. Strada took the lead when the green flag dropped with Hayden Miller on his bumper

Four cars battled for the lead as Jeff Rohrbaugh and Nash Ely split Miller with Rohrbaugh moving into second, Ely third and Miller fourth.

Rohrbaugh took the lead on lap 2 and Ely followed on the following lap, getting by Strada for second.

Ely was closing in on Rohrbaugh with Cody Fletcher not far behind in third. The yellow flag flew on lap 6 when Nat Tuckey was off the pace on the front stretch.

Rohrbaugh led Ely, Fletcher, Strada and Miller to the cone for a single-file restart.

Rohrbaugh had a good restart with Ely opting to run a higher line which allowed him to stick with Rohrbaugh. Points leader, Steve Owings, was working his way to the front from his eighth place starting spot and was running fourth by lap 7.

As Ely and Fletcher battled for second, Rohrbaugh was able to pull away. Once Ely held solidly held second, Fletcher was left to fend off Owings. A fierce battle between Fletcher and Owings ensued as they raced wheel to wheel down the back stretch for third. Fletcher held the spot.

With Fletcher in his rear view, Ely went back to reeling in Rohrbaugh. Owings got by Fletcher and tracked down Ely with five laps to go.

Owings was nearly wheel to wheel at the white flag with Ely for second. Rohrbaugh got to the checkered flag .889 seconds ahead of Owings for his first win of the season. Ely finished third and Fletcher was fourth. Miller crossed the line fifth.

Zachary Cool was the hard charger driving from 21st to 14th and Frankie Herr earned the Lucky Buck award for finishing 11th.

Bobby Beard Dominates

Bobby Beard and Dan Zechman shared the front row for the start of the 20-lap Limited Late Model feature. Zechman had the slight advantage as they raced into turn 1 but Beard took the lead off turn 2. The yellow flag waved before a lap was completed when Ray Ciccarelli, Cameron Benyou, Bruce Kane and Harry Shipe got together in turns 3 and 4.

Beard took the lead on the second start with Travis Mease up to second as Zechman got shuffled back to sixth.

Beard, looking for 10th career win in the division at Lincoln, held a solid lead over Mease as Zechman and Jake Moser raced side by side for third.

Zechman recovered from his rough start and got by Mease for second on lap 6. Wayne Pfeil spun in turn 4 bringing out the caution. The top five for the restart were Beard, Zechman, Moser, Mease and Zach Kauffman.

A four-car battle for fifth between Kauffman, Tommy Slanker, Andrew Yoder and Jed Latshaw was materializing as Beard was out front by himself.

Lapped traffic came into the picture for Beard with five laps to go, right before the yellow flag waved on lap 16 when Kyle Bachman was off the pace and stopped in turn 3.

Beard led Zechman, Moser, Mease and Latshaw to the cone for the late race restart. Moser got under Zechman as they battled for second with Moser taking the spot on lap 17.

Yoder made a late race charge, getting up to fifth on lap 18 and moving into third with one lap to go.

Beard got to the checkered flag 1.765 seconds ahead of Moser for his 10th Lincoln Speedway Limited Late Model win. Yoder crossed the line third and Latshaw was fourth. Zechman completed the top five.

HEIMBACH HOLDS OFF SMITH FOR SECOND CAREER 410 SPRINT CAR WIN;

BERNHEISEL BESTS ECKERT & SATTERLEE FOR CLOSE LATE MODEL VICTORY;

JONES WINS SECOND ROADRUNNER 20, FIFTH RACE OF SEASON

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Blane Heimbach of Selinsgrove held off Ryan Smith of Kunkletown for the $5,000 victory in Saturday night’s 25-lap Jeff’s Auto Body Summer Championship race at Selinsgrove Speedway.

For Heimbach, who is one of the track’s all-time career leading 358-360 sprint car winners, it was his second in the 410 sprint car ranks at the wheel of the Creasy Signs No. 12 entry.

Bryan Bernheisel of Lebanon came out the winner of a thrilling 25-lap super late model championship race over Rick Eckert of York and Gregg Satterlee of Rochester Mills.

Bernheisel also collected $5,000 for this second win of the season and the 11th of his career at the track. He became the first repeat winner in the division while driving the Lazer Chassis No. 119.

Jake Jones of Hunlock Creek drove to his second career win in the annual Roadrunner 20 race. The win was also his fifth of the year at the track.

Selinsgrove Speedway’s next race will be at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug.6, featuring the Renegades of Dirt Super Late Model Series in a $4,000-to-win race plus the USAC East Coast Wingless 360 sprint cars, and a roadrunner championship race sponsored by Hilly Ridge Sales & Service.

Third-place starter Blane Heimbach got a start in the sprint car feature and pulled into the early lead. The race was stopped on lap two for a three-car incident in turn two when Ron Aurand’s car turned over on its side.

When the race resumed, Heimbach led sixth-place starter Ryan Smith while a battle for third unfolded between polesitter Nick Sweigart and second-place starter Mark Smith.

By lap nine, the leaders began to encounter slower traffic and R. Smith kept Heimbach in his sights. The caution flag regrouped the field again on lap 12 for debris.

On lap 22, Michael Walter, who was racing fourth, crashed hard in turn three when one of his car’s tires exploded. The race was slowed again with one lap to go when M. Smith’s car developed a flat tire.

In the chase to the checkered flag, Heimbach was victorious by just .80 of a second over Smith, Sweigart, fifth-place starter Chad Trout, and seventh-place starter Steve Buckwalter.

In the super late model feature, second-place starter Jim Bernheisel powered into the lead at the drop of the green flag. J. Bernheisel was chased by his son and polesitter Bryan Bernheisel and fourth-place starter Tim Wilson in the early laps of the race.

The leaders caught slower traffic by lap six when fifth-place starter Coleby Frye advanced to third, only to drop off the pace two laps later.

The first caution flag of the race waved on lap 11 for debris on the speedway. When the race resumed, J. Bernheisel set the pace in front of B. Bernheisel as 10th-place starter Rick Eckert made a thrilling pass between both sixth-place starter Jeff Rine and seventh-place starter Gregg Satterlee for the third position.

J. Bernheisel’s bid for his first win of the season came to an end when his car fell off the pace on lap 16, allowing B. Bernheisel to inherit the lead with Eckert and Satterlee in tow.

The top three broke away from the pack in a close, high-speed chase for the lead and win with B. Bernheisel coming out the victor by just .53 of a second over Eckert, Satterlee, 15th-place starter Dylan Yoder, and third-place starter Andrew Yoder.

Polesitter Tom Underwood led the first lap of the Roadrunner 20 until sixth-place starter Keith Bissinger stormed into the front spot. On the fifth circuit, second-place starter and runner Nate Romig bobbled in turn two, allowing fourth-place starter Jake Jones to power into second.

At the halfway point, just as Jones was challenging for the lead in turns three and four, Bissinger’s car developed a flat tire and brought out the caution flag.

For the rest of the way, Jones went unchallenged as ninth-place starter Levi Vial showed some speed and powered into the second position in the final laps. Bob Bussey, Dan Condo, and Romig rounded out the top five.

BRAD SWEET’S FIRST WILLIAMS GROVE WINS COMES IN CHAMPION RACING OIL

SUMMER NATIONALS FINALE

MECHANICSBURG, PA – Brad Sweet has won the Knoxville Nationals and the

King’s Royal, but had never won at Williams Grove Speedway.

The World of Outlaws point leader and three-time champion changed that

stat on Saturday night using a late-race pass to win the $20,000

Champion Racing Oil Summer Nationals, and his first Williams Grove

win. It also ended a 31-race winless streak for Sweet, who hadn’t won

with the series since March.

“You know it’s a weird year when we’re at the Summer Nationals and I

get my second win and it’s at Williams Grove,” Sweet said. “We’re gone

through a lot of adversity this year. It’s been a tough year. We’ve

been working on this Williams Grove set-up for a long time. It’s a

pretty special night for us. It’s such a relief to win here. It was a

great race and a racy race track.”

Sheldon Haudenschild led the field down to start the 30-lap Champion

Racing Oil Summer Nationals finale. It was Donny Schatz grabbing the

lead over Haudenschild, Brad Sweet and Danny Dietrich.

While the top four remained the same, eighth starter David Gravel

wrestled fifth from Carson Macedo.

Haudenschild ran the middle groove keeping pace with Schatz running the top.

He ducked under him off the second turn taking the lead down the

backstretch and into turn three with six laps completed.

Haudenschild began lapping cars with Schatz and Sweet in tow. They

kept it close in traffic and then even heavier traffic at the half-way

point.

Schatz raced inside of Haudenschild for the lead. Haudenschild got

blocked in traffic off turn two. They raced side-by-side down the

backstretch. Haudenschild got a great run around the top passing both

Schatz and Logan Schuchart off turn four to keep the top spot.

A three-car crash in turn three stopped the race with 12 laps to go.

Macedo, Anthony Macri and Kyle Larson were involved. All drivers were

okay. Macri was the only car able to restart.

Haudenschild blasted the top on the restart with Schatz trying to hold

back Sweet for second. James McFadden passed Gravel for fifth as

Schatz maintained second.

With Haudenschild in control, a three- car race for second developed between

Schatz, Sweet and Dietrich.

Sweet worked the middle groove racing by Schatz with seven to go. He

was 1.8 second back of the leader.

Dietrich passed Schatz for third with six to go.

Sweet continued working the middle gaining on the leader. They closed

on the back of the field with three to go.

Haudenschild jumped the fourth turn cushion and Sweet took the lead

with two to go. Dietrich got under Haudenschild for second. He closed

on Sweet on the final lap. The slower car of Brandon Rahmer was in

Dietrich’s line in turn one. This was enough to keep Sweet out front over

the final lap.

Sweets’s win came by only .339 over Dietrich.

“Some of my driving habits don’t work for this place, so we had to

build a completely different car to come to this race track,” Sweet

said. “It’s going in the rafters and the next time it comes back out

will be the National Open. My car was really good and I could move

around.”

“Happy to be second,” Dietrich said. “Brad was good and was running

the same line I was running in one and two. I was waiting on the track

to come to me. With five to go, I decided to trunk the wing and let it

eat. Just ran out of time. If Brandon would have followed Brad through

three and four, I might have had a shot, but you never know. Maybe we

could have drag-raced to the checkers, but it’s hard to say.”

Haudenschild, Schatz, and Freddie Rahmer completed the top five.

McFadden, Gravel, Spencer Bayston, Jacob Allen and Brock Zearfoss

rounded out the top 10.

Macri set quick time over the 35-car field with a lap of 17.258. James

McFadden, Spencer Bayston, Sweet and Macedo completed the top five in

qualifying.

Schatz, McFadden, Gravel and Devon Borden won the heat races. Sheldon

Haudenschild won the dash over Schatz and Sweet. Brandon Rahmer won

the Last Chance Showdown over Brock Zearfoss, Kraig Kinser, and Brent

Marks.

LANCE DEWEASE WINS OPENING NIGHT OF CHAMPION RACING OIL SUMMER

NATIONALS AT WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY

July 22, 2022

MECHANICSBURG, PA – Lance Dewease passed Brent Marks with four laps to

go to win the opening night of the Champion Racing Oil Summer

Nationals Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway.

Dewease’s 106th career Grove victory was worth $10,000 against the

World of Outlaws.

“I don’t know if we had the best racecar, but I have the most patience

around this place,” Dewease said. “I was trying not to show Brent that

I was on the bottom because he’s good everywhere right now and can run

all the lines. I didn’t want him to move down, so I wanted to make

sure I got by him before he seen me. We haven’t had a very good year

by our standards. To get a win against these guys and PA Posse top

three is pretty sweet. This win gets you pumped back up.”

A wide and racy Grove surface provided exciting racing all night long.

“Lance is extremely good here,” Marks said. “I didn’t really know

where to run there at the end. I felt comfortable on the bottom after

the restart, I ran it for two laps, but I also felt comfortable up

top. The cushion got too big around the top of one and two and

carrying my speed was too hard. I kind of let that one go.”

Marks and Anthony Macri shared the front row with Marks getting the

lead. Outlaws point leader Brad Sweet wrestled second from Macri

during the opening laps.

Marks led, but Sweet was closing with five laps complete. Carson

Macedo raced fourth and Dewease fifth.

Marks began lapping slower cars with about a 1-second lead over Sweet.

Marks got immediately held up in traffic and Sweet was on his back

bumper. Macri jumped the second turn cushion allowing Macedo to get

by, but Dewease got a great run off the corner and passed both of

them.

Marks got by the lapped car and increased his lead over Sweet as

Macedo and Dewease traded the third spot.

The top two were in very heavy traffic. Sweet caught Marks and ducked

under him in turn one, but couldn’t make the pass with 12 to go. This

also allowed Dewease to catch the top two.

The racing was very close as they worked through the traffic. Marks

cleared two cars in turn three giving himself some breathing room with

eight to go.

The yellow flew giving the leaders a clear track for the final eight laps.

Marks controlled the restart as Dewease passed Sweet for second.

Marks raced the cushion with Dewease closing using the inside line.

Dewease made the winning pass as they raced off the second turn with

four to go.

“I found the bottom when we were racing in lapped cars and I didn’t

feel that bad,” Dewease said. “I hung down there and made it work.”

Marks stayed close, but then Dewease ran a perfect lap and pulled

away. Marks jumped the first turn cushion giving Dewease an

unchallenged final lap. Marks settled for second. Marci nipped Sweet

for third. Sweet and Gravel completed the top five. Macedo, Donny

Schatz, Danny Dietrich, Kyle Larson and James McFadden rounded out the

top 10.

McFadden set quick time over the 36-car field with a lap of 17.407.

Sweet, Macri, Macedo and Dewease were the next four.

McFadden won the first heat race over Dewease. Sweet won the second

heat over David Gravel. Donny Schatz won the third heat over Macri.

Macedo won the final heat over Brent Marks. Marks won the dash over

Macri and Macedo.

The $20,000 to win Champion Racing Oil Summer Nationals finale for the

World of Outlaws and Pennsylvania Posse is Saturday night.

Kyle Larson Tames the World of Outlaws for the Third Consecutive Time at Port Royal Speedway

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway– PORT ROYAL, Penn (July 21, 2022) – Kyle Larson continued his dominant ways against the NOS Energy Drink World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series at the Port Royal Speedway as he picked up his third consecutive victory at the Speedway with the series.

Larson didn't compete with the series at the Juniata County oval in 2021, but swept the 2020 October Nittany Classic. This win was worth $20,000 and came over Danny Dietrich and Anthony Macri.

Larson and the night's $300 Packer's Concessions, LLC. Fast Time Award winner, Donny Schatz, led the field of 26 sprint cars to the green flag and it was all Larson from the drop of the green flag as the defending NASCAR Cup Series Champion led lap one.

Fourth-place starter Danny Dietrich moved into a podium position on the opening lap as well, but Larson quickly distanced himself from all challengers and held a 4.25 second advantage by the completion of lap five.

Dietrich got by Schatz for the runner-up spot on the same lap, while Sheldon Haudenschild moved into third entering turn one on the following lap. Sixth-place starter Jeff Halligan cracked the top five on the sixth circuit as well, while Larson was already deep in lapped traffic and setting a quick pace.

After three more laps Dietrich had cut the distance in half and by lap 11 Halligan had gotten by Schatz for the fourth position. Two laps later Anthony Macri, who started ninth, climbed into the top five for the first time, but by the halfway mark it was still Larson by 3.3 seconds with the rest of the field in tow.

Macri moved into fourth with 12 laps remaining and three laps later he dispatched of Haudenschild for the final podium position. Over the final nine circuits Macri and Dietrich gave the fans every bit of their money's worth as the two duked it out for the runner-up spot, but neither would get any closer to Larson.

The California Kid cruised home to the victory for the 28th time in his career against the World of Outlaws, which moved him into a tie for 23rd all-time on the win list with the series. It was also his eighth career victory at the Port Royal Speedway with seven of them coming in 410 Sprint Car competition.

Behind Dietrich and Macri, Brent Marks and Haudenschild rounded out the top five. Halligan, Lance Dewease, Carson Macedo, Devon Borden and Brock Zearfoss completed the rest of the top ten.

Zearfoss earned the night's $500 Valley Supply Hard Charger Award after starting 17th on the grid.

World of Outlaws Results- 1. Kyle Larson, 2. Danny Dietrich, 3. Anthony Macri, 4. Brent Marks, 5. Sheldon Haudenschild, 6. Jeff Halligan, 7. Lance Dewease, 8. Carson Macedo, 9. Devon Borden, 10.

World of Outlaws Sprint Cars Set to Invade Port Royal Speedway for $20,000 Spectacular

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Pa- (July 19, 2022) Port Royal Speedway returns to action this Wednesday, July 20th, for a rare mid-week visit by the NOS Energy Drink World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series with $20,000 on the line for the winner. The Path Valley Wingless Sportsman are also on the card for a huge event you won't want to miss!

This will be the ninth consecutive season that the Outlaws visit the Speed Palace, but it will be the first time the series hits the Juniata County oval in July. Later this season the series will return for it's customary October visit for the two-day Nittany Showdown.

In two visits last season, the driver's visiting victory lane at the track were a pair of first-time Port Royal Speedway winners. Kerry Madsen threaded the needle between PA Posse and World of Outlaws as he scored a victory for 'The Other Guys" behind the wheel of Tony Stewart's No. 14 Sprint Car, while the finale went to Spencer Bayston as he prepared for his rookie season on the Outlaw Tour with CJB Motorsports.

Other past winners in Outlaw competition at the track include Donny Schatz (4), Kyle Larson (2), Logan Schuchart, Brad Sweet, Ryan Smith, Jason Meyers, Brad Furr, Danny Wood, Doug Wolfgang, Don Kreitz Jr. and Lynn Paxton won the very first visit in July of 1979.

Logan Wagner sits on top of the Weikert's Livestock 410 Sprint Car point standings in search of his historic fifth consecutive championship at the Speedway, but he saw his lead nearly cut in half two weekend's ago as a result of an accident on track. His father, Mike Wagner, now only trails by 145 points with Jeff Halligan (-260), Lucas Wolfe (-500) and Dylan Cisney (-535) rounding out the top five.

Halligan is the most recent winner at the Speedway as he owns two victories at the Speed Palce this season. Anthony Macri leads the local contingent of drivers this season at Port Royal with five victories, while Logan Wagner has four. Other winners this season at the track include Lance Dewease, Rick Lafferty and arguably the hottest driver in the country right now, Brent Marks.

It is expected that several other outsiders will make the trek to the Juniata County oval as well.

To go along with the PA Posse vs the Outlaws rivalry, the Outlaws points battle is very much up for grabs entering the weekend. Currently Sweet holds a 42-point advantage in the standings over David Gravel and a 58-point advantage over third-place Carson Macedo. Sheldon Haudenschild (-80) and Schuchart (-122) make up the top five.

Schatz, Bayston, James McFadden, Jacob Allen and Brock Zearfoss complete the top ten. Kasey Kahene will also be in attendance as he continues in his rookie season as a regular with the World of Outlaws along with Kraig Kinser, Noah Gass, Bill Rose and Robbie Price filling in for Jason Sides.

Wednesday's event will feature the Wingless Sportsman on the card and it will be Steve Wilbur entering the event as the most recent winner at the Speedway with the series.

Reserve Seats ($35) are still available for the weekend and are on sale through the World of Outlaws website.

Ticket prices and times are as follows-

WEDNNESDAY, JULY 20TH- $30 Adult General Admission, Students (12-17) $20, Kids- Free, Pit Admission $40

Williams Grove World Of Outlaws Champion Racing Oil Summer Nationals Set For July 22 & 23, Races To Pay $1,000 and $1,100 To Start

7/17/22

Mechanicsburg – The Champion Racing Oil World of Outlaws Sprint Cars Series Summer Nationals iis this week at Williams Grove Speedway, slated for Friday and Saturday, July 22 and 23 at 7:30 pm.

The outlaws sprint cars will invade Williams Grove Speedway for the two-day summer stand to battle the Pennsylvania Posse sprint car stars for what will be the second match-up of the 2022 season.

The modern-day, consecutive-year history of the Summer Nationals dates back to 2002 when the show was a three-day event with Danny Lasoski, Joey Saldana and Greg Hodnett taking wins.

However events dubbed “Summer Nationals” were first contested at the oval back in 1972 with Jan Opperman and Bobbie Adamson recorded as the victors.

Both nights of this year’s Summer Nationals shows will include full programs of time trials, heats and feature events.

The July 22 outlaws-posse match will feature a 25-lap main paying $10,000 to win and $1,000 to start while the July 23 Saturday finale Champion Racing Oil Summer Nationals feature will offer $20,000 to the winner while paying $1,100 to start.

Last year, Sheldon Haudenschild and Brent Marks split Summer Nationals winning laurels with Marks scoring the big 20K in the Saturday finale.

California’s Brad Sweet is the current outlaws point leader over Ohio’s Haudenschild.

Sweet has just one win on the season to date while Haudenschild has posted eight.

Californian Carson Macedo, now third in outlaws points, seems to have set himself up as the driver most consistently in the hunt for a win on any given night this year however.

At Williams Grove, both Marks and Anthony Macri seem to be the fastest drivers this year.

Myerstown’s Marks has scored a hat trick of only big wins for himself at the track this season, taking the Tommy Classic in April, the Mitch Smiith Memorial in early July and outlaws win in May.

And, having just scored the $100,000 Historical Big One and the $175,000 Kings Royal at Eldora Speedway, Marks is by far the highest dollar earner in sprint car racing anywhere this season.

Macri of Dillsburg is the winningest driver of the season anywhere across the nation.

With 16 overall wins on the year, he’s taken three at Williams Grove with impressive style.

Since 1956, Champion Racing Oil has been purpose built for engine performance.

Containing premium levels of anti-wear additives and high quantities of ZDDP, Champion Racing Oils are proven to meet the lubrication demands of all competition and race engines.

Williams Grove Summer Nationals Celebrates 21st Running This Weekend

7/17/22

Mechanicsburg – The Champion Racing Oil Summer Nationals at Williams Grove Speedway, coming up this Friday and Saturday, July 22 and 23, will celebrate its 21st running this week.

The first edition of the current Summer Nationals was a three-day event back in 2002 with a pair of preliminary mains taken by Danny Lasoski and Joey Saldana while local driver Greg Hodentt upended the World of Outlaws for the big score on Saturday driving for the Apple Motorsports stables.

At the time, the three-day World of Outlaws show at Williams Grove was billed as the first of its kind since only one other previous three-day stand at the track in history, also billed as a Summer Nationals, in August 1984 when Sammy Swindell, Brad Doty and Steve Kinser took wins.

Current World of Outlaws kingpin Donny Schatz took two of three at the track in 2003 with Don Kreitz Jr. taking a preliminary night.

The 2004 version saw Lance Dewease and Lasoski split a pair of mains.

Another three-day format in 2005 saw Jason Johnson score a popular victory for local owners Jim and Sandy Kline while Paul McMahan scored another prelim with track powerhouse Fred Rahmer taking a raucous victory in the Saturday finale.

In 2006 outlaws invaders Terry McCarl, Craig Dollansky and Dary Pittman swept the three-day affair.

Donny Schatz bookended the three-day event with wins in 2007 while local Brian Leppo of Spring Grove was sandwiched in the middle with a win aboard the Swope No. 71 machine.

Becoming a two-day event in 2008, outlaws Donny Schatz and Daryn Pittman swept the shows but the following year belonged to local drivers Greg Hodnett in the Kline No. 22 and Cody Darrah with Darrah taking the win in a make-up feature held during National Open weekend in October.

The 2010 version was all Pennsylvania Posse as Lance Dewease took night one aboard the Don Owens No. 30C and Hodnett returning for another win for the Kline team.

Hodnett struck again in 2011, this time in the Trone Special No. 39, along with outlaw driver Jason Meyers.

Just one show was completed in 2012 with Darrah back for another win, this time aboard an outlaws mount owned by Kasey Kahne.

Again, one show was completed in 2013 with Schatz again a victor but the pendulum swung the other way again in 2014 when locals Hodnett and Dewease swept the two-day weekend show with Hodnett now driving for Michael Heffner and Dewease aboard the Conduit Connections No. 14.

The locals made it back-to-back sweeps of the event in 2015 when Danny Dietrich and Stevie Smith trounced the outlaws.

Pittman was back for a win in 2016 with Dewease, now aboard the Kreitz No. 69K, taking the Saturday finale.

Local driver Brock Zearfoss piloted the Long No. 58 to the win on night one in 2017 while Greg Hodnett ended up scoring the second feature aboard the Heffner mount albeit as a make up main in late September.

Only the first night was completed in 2018 with Dewease returning for a victory, still in the 69K.

The 2019 Summer Nationals saw Tim Shaffer pilot the Rudzik No. 49 to the opening night win while Schatz got back to Summer Nationals victory for the first time since 2013.

Shane Stewart fended off Anthony Macri to win opening night in 2020 while David Gravel dominated on Saturday to lead flag to flag.

Last year, Sheldon Haudenschild and Brent Marks split Summer Nationals winning laurels with Marks scoring the big 20K Saturday finale.

Haudenschild’s Friday win was the first of his career at Williams Grove.

Adult general admission for July 23 is set at $30 with Saturday’s race priced at $35. Youth ages 13 – 20 are priced at $15 each night. Kids ages 12 and under are always admitted for FREE at Williams Grove Speedway.

Dewease Preps For Outlaws With Williams Grove Wolfe Tribute Race 6K Win

Locke returns to 358 sprint victory lane

7/15/22

Mechanicsburg – Lance Dewease pocketed his second Williams Grove Speedway 410 sprint car win of the season on Friday night, taking a $6,000 victory in the Randy Wolfe Tribute World of Outlaw Tune Up race.

In the 358 sprint main, Derek Locke returned to victory lane as well for the second time this season.

The start of the 25-lap Wolfe Tribute event was slowed when outside polesitter Devon Borden bicycled on the turn two cushion and spun.

Borden’s misfortune put Dewease on the front row for the new start and the Fayetteville flyer wasted little time taking control when the green flag reappeared.

The leader was then slowed for a spun Tyler Ross on the fourth lap.

Jeff Halligan saw Freddie Rahmer wrestle second away on the restart as Dewease pulled out to a four second lead by lap nine.

Dylan Norris took third with six away.

A final caution flag on lap 13 regrouped the field with Rahmer proving no match for Dewease.

The ensuing laps showcased a great battle between Norris and Troy Wagaman Jr. for the third spot as the pair repeatedly got by one another for the position only to see the former again reclaim the position.

Wagaman did finally secure the spot with two laps to go before closing on Rahmer.

And Wagaman did indeed get by Rahmer for second as the pair raced through turns three and four as they headed to the checkers but Rahmer was able to muscle back in front by the finish.

Dewease crossed the line by 4.550 seconds ahead of Rahmer.

It was Dewease’s 105th career victory at Williams Grove.

Wagman was third followed by Norris and Chase Dietz.

Sixth through 10th went to Lucas Wolfe, Jeff Halligan, Brandon Rahmer, Devon Borden and Robbie Kendall.

Heats worth $75 courtesy of Jim and Laura Allebach went to Dewease, Halligan and Norris.

Chase Dietz was the PA Dyno Hard Charger and he also earned the Orange Crate Brewing Company Randy Wolfe Tribute Bonus worth $555 for finishing in the fifth spot.

Halligan earned the pole for the main by winning the dash.

Dewease set fast time over the field with a lap of 17.233 seconds.

Locke took the lead from Matt Findley on lap eight of the 20 lap 358 sprint main after starting the race sixth.

Findley had led from the beginning after starting on the pole and while running the bottom lane he allowed just enough room in turn one for Locke to get a nose to his inside, allowing for the race winning pass.

Locke began lapping cars with four laps to go and cruised to the win by 3.430 seconds ahead of Findley with Doug Hammaker, Chad Criswell and Nash Ely completing the top five.

Sixth through 10th went to Brett Wanner, Cameron Smith, Cody Fletcher, Steve Owings and Devin Adams.

Heats went to Findley, Cody Phillips and Wanner with Tyler Brehm scoring the consolation race.

The Champion Racing Oil World of Outlaws Summer Nationals are coming up July 22 and 23 at the speedway, getting underway at 7:30 both nights.

Abbottstown, PA (July 9, 2022) – Aaron Bollinger drew the pole for the 30-lap, $5,000 to win feature on Saturday night. Anthony Macri who was looking to add to his nation leading win count total, drew the second starting spot. Macri shot out to the lead when the green flag dropped, but the red flag came out on the start when Austin Bishop flipped in turn 1. Zane Rudisill, Brie Hershey and Danny Dietrich headed to the pits before the restart, ending their nights.

Bollinger had a better start on the second attempt and went high in turns 1 and 2 to hold onto the lead. Macri was running second, Freddie Rahmer was third and Chad Trout sat in fourth.

Tyler Ross fell off the pace on lap 4 bringing out the caution. Bollinger led Macri, Rahmer, Trout and Kyle Moody on the restart. Bollinger and Macri ran the same line through turns 1 and 2 with Aaron holding onto the lead. Moody was working on Trout for fourth and threw a slider in turns 1 and 2 to take the spot on lap 7.

Glenndon Forsythe was off the pace on lap 12 bringing out yellow flag conditions.

The top five for the restart were Bollinger, Macri, Rahmer, Moody and Trout. Macri pulled a wheelie on the restart allowing Bollinger to pull away. Chase Dietz was working on Trout for a spot in the top five. Dietz took fifth place by a nose at the line on lap 16.

Lapped traffic came into play on lap 19 for Bollinger. Aaron got a little sideways in turn 4 as he worked his way by a lapped car, allowing Macri to close in. Macri was on Bollinger’s bumper at the line on lap 23 and took the top spot in turns 1 and 2 to take the lead on lap 24.

The final caution of the race came on lap 26 when Scott Fisher slowed on the track. Macri had a solid restart ahead of Bollinger, Rahmer, Moody and Dietz.

Rahmer was throwing everything he had at Bollinger for second but could not get anything to stick.

Macri crossed the line 2.348 seconds ahead of Bollinger for the win. Rahmer finished third and Moody was fourth. Dietz completed the top five.

Dylan Norris was the hard charger, driving from 19th to finish eighth. The 410 sprint heat races were won by Robbie Kendall, Aaron Bollinger and Chad Trout.

Chad Criswell Wires Field for 358 Win

Pole-sitter Chad Criswell took the lead when the green flag waved ahead of Cody Phillips and Jeff Rohrbaugh. Cameron Smith and David Holbrook battled for fourth with Smith taking the spot. Steve Owings was working his way up through the field from his eighth starting spot battling Holbrook for fifth on lap 5.

A dicey situation in turn 4 unfolded ahead of the leaders on lap 8 as they caught the tail end of the field. Shortly after the leaders got through turn 4 the caution came out when Brett Wanner was off the pace.

Criswell led Phillips, Rohrbaugh, Smith and Holbrook to the cone for the restart. Rohrbaugh got under Phillips for second and took the spot on lap 9.

Owings got by Holbrook for fifth before the caution came out on lap 10 for Zachary Cool who stopped on the back stretch.

Rohrbaugh looked low on the restart but could not get by Criswell. Kyle Ganoe brought out the yellow on lap 13 when he stopped on the back stretch.

The top five for the restart were Criswell, Rohrbaugh, Phillips, Smith and Owings. Smith got by Phillips to take third on lap 14.

The yellow flag came out again on lap 17 when Justin Foster stopped on the front stretch.

Smith went to the outside of Rohrbaugh on the restart to challenge for second and took the spot with two laps to go before the final caution of the race came when Chris Frank and Holbrook got together in turn 2.

The field lined up for a two lap shoot out with Criswell, Smith, Rohrbaugh, Phillips and Owings up front.

Criswell crossed the line 1.259 seconds ahead of Smith for the $1,700 win. Rohrbaugh crossed the line third and Owings made a late race pass on Phillips to take fourth. Phillips held on to finish fifth.

Roland Scores $1,500 Classic Car Victory

Roland Brown and Jimmy Combs shared the front row for the start of the 15-lap, $1,500 to win Classic Car feature on Saturday night.

Roland took the lead at the green flag with Combs and Bill Brown racing side by side into turn 1 for second. Bill moved into second down the back stretch taking the spot from Combs.

Roland was pulling away from the field when the caution came out on lap 3 when Nate Todt spun in turn 4.

Roland held onto the lead on the restart as Combs got back by Bill for second. Lapped traffic came into play late in the race on lap 11. Just as the leaders got into lapped traffic the caution came out on lap 12 when Jim Rost got into the guardrail coming out of turn 2.

Combs got under Roland in turns 1 and 2 on the restart but could not make the pass.

The yellow flag would come out again on lap 14 when Joe Makowski stopped on the back stretch.

Once again Combs looked to the inside of Roland on the restart and once again Roland held onto the lead. Combs didn’t back off and Roland won the feature by only half a car length.

Career Of Randy Wolfe Feted Friday At Williams Grove

7/10/22

Mechanicsburg – The Pennsylvania Posse 410 sprint car stars will gather together to compete in the make-up Randy Wolfe Tribute Race and World of Outlaws Tune Up, paying $6,000 to win, coming up this Friday night, July 15, at Williams Grove Speedway.

The drivers will come together to honor the career of veteran sprint car ace Randy Wolfe of Mechanicsburg.

Now age 65, Wolfe got his start in racing by tagging along with his childhood neighbors to the races.

Plus, the Texaco station where super modified and modified star Bobby Gearhart’s car was kept wasn’t far from his house so that didn’t hurt either. .

Randy Wolfe first drove a go-kart in 1971 before helping out sprint car star Lee Osborne in 1973.

And then in 1976, with Gearhart’s familiar No 5 now painted on his racer, Wolfe went sprint car racing with the URC circuit where he won his first sprint car race ever, at Weedsport, New York, on July 4.

In 1977, Wolfe moved up to the regular sprint car division at Williams Grove Speedway and earned Rookie of the Year Honors at the track before going on to log a total of 11 wins at the historic oval.

His first Williams Grove win came in his rookie season as did the first help he ever had owning a car in the form of LPS Racers, AKA the Lebanon Pattern Shop owned by the Woelfling family.

Aside from the Woelflings, car owners came in the form of Bob Weikert, Ben Cook, Maynard Boop, Daryl Saucier, Bobby Glen and Roger Powell, Leon Wintermyer, Glen Hyneman, Ted Ganoe, Ken Cooper and Gene Jenkins before Wolfe wound down his career driving for Souderton car-owning couple Jim and Laura Allebach from 1996 through 1999.

But surely his most identifiable ride spanned the majority of the 1980’s when he went driving for brothers Bill and Jesse Keen in the Keen Transport No. 5W machine.

In total, Wolfe wrapped up his driving tenure with a total of 64 career sprint car wins including All Stars victories not the least of which was the East Bay Winternationals in 1990 at the wheel of the Wintermyer No. 1W.

Aside from Williams Grove, wins came at Selinsgrove, Lincoln, Port Royal, Susquehanna (now Baps), Silver Springs, Path Valley and in Expo, Ohio.

At the Grove, Wolfe scored both the Jack Gunn Memorial and the Early Bird Championship for Keens in 1984.

Jeff Halligan Scores Second 410 Sprint Car Victory of the Season. Jeff Rine, Jared Miley and Andrew Yoder Score in Late Model Action

By Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, PA- (July 10, 2022)- Jeff Halligan was the last driver standing in a wild night of racing for the Weikert's Livestock 410 Sprint Cars as the young gun picked up his second victory of the season Saturday night.

The win was worth $4500 courtesy of an added bonus via Mike Cleck Paving & Sealcoating and came over Mike Wagner and Mike Walter II.

Rookie series driver Derek Hauck and Trenton Sheaffer led the field of 22 410 Sprint Cars to the green flag and it was Hauck getting the early jump over Sheaffer, Ryan Timms, Halligan and Ryan Taylor on the opening lap.

Dylan Cisney moved into the fourth position on lap two before cracking the podium for the first time one lap later. By lap four Cisney was up to second and one lap later it was Timms, the 15-year old from Oklahoma, moving into the final podium spot.

However, it was all Hauck up front for the first ten laps of the event. Cisney and Timms were putting on a spirited battle for the runner-up position, while simultaneously gaining quickly on the leader. One lap later Hauck had caught the tail end of the field and that was the opportunity needed for Cisney as he was able to garner the top spot with 13 laps to go of the 25 lap event coming out of turn four.

Timms followed suit and moved into the runner-up spot on the same circuit, while four-time defending track champion and ninth-place starter, Logan Wagner, was coming fast and up to fifth as well.

Cisney's advantage on the field sat at 1.044 seconds with 10 laps remaining, but that would be wiped out two laps later when Tyler Walton came to a stop on the frontstretch. This is where things started to get wild.

It appeared the crowd was set to witness an epic battle between a pair of No. 5's up front, however Timms blew a right rear tire while under caution and was forced to the pit area for repairs. He would rejoin the field.

Cisney led the field back to the green flag, with Hauck, Halligan and a pair of Wagner's in tow. Halligan got by the rookie for the runner-up position and brought Logan Wagner with him.

However, with the three drivers locked ever-so-tightly coming down the backstretch, Wagner and Hauck made contact and sent both of them spinning. Wagner broke a rear axle and got on his side to bring out the red flag, but both drivers were ok.

Halligan and Cisney swapped lines for the lead following the restart, which allowed Mike Wagner to slide into the second position past Halligan. However, two laps later Cisney's hopes at victory went away as he flipped over while leading in turn three as a result of a flat left-rear tire. He was ok, but would not return to the field.

With the lead now in his hand, Mike Wagner brought the field back to the green flag with five laps remaining. However, it only took one lap for Halligan to get by the veteran for the top spot. From there it was smooth sailing as the driver of the No. 45 went on the score the victory over Wagner and Mike Walter II.

Ryan Taylor and Sheaffer rounded out the top five, while Gerard McIntyre Jr., Kassidy Kreitz, Timms, Justin Whittall and Tyler Bear completed the top ten. McIntyre Jr. earned the $500 Valley Supply Hard Charger award after starting 19th on the grid, while Whittall earned the $1000 J&S Classics Warrior Award with a random draw of nine.

Jeff Rine capitalized on a front row starting spot to score his 28th career Krill Recycling, LLC Super Late Model victory in a 25-lap non-stop feature event over Gary Stuhler and Jared Miley.

Rine and Tim Wilson led the field of 24 cars to the green flag with Rine getting the early jump on the field. After five laps of racing were completed, third-place starter Austin Berry sat in the runner-up position with fifth-place starter Stuhler in third.

Tenth-place starter Miley was up to fourth with 18 laps to go, while Rine was buried in heavy lapped traffic six laps later. Stuhler slipped by Berry for the runner-up position one lap later while Miley continued his march to the front by moving into third with 11 laps remaining.

With 10 laps remaining the lead for Rine sat at 2.305 seconds and with six laps to go, Stuhler had cut nearly half a second off the advantage. However, that was close as he'd get ads Rine cruised home to the victory worth $3000.

Stuhler, Miley, Berry and Tylor Emory completed the top five followed by Dylan Yoder, Tim Wilson, Kyle Lee, Logan Zarin and Jim Yoder. Miley earned the $200 Georges Used Cars Hard Charger award as well.

Miley was able to find his way to victory lane in the second feature that was a make-up from earlier in the season as he bested Stuhler and Chad Myers.

Kyle Lee and Myers led the field the green flag and it was Lee grabbing the lead on lap one. Miley up to third after five laps, while Stuhler was up to fourth. Two laps later Miley moved into the runner-up spot and with 13 to go he was all over the leader.

Coming to the start-finish line on the following lap, Miley slipped underneath Myers for the lead and that was all she wrote. Stuhler would get by Myers for the runner-up spot with seven laps remaining, but Miley cruised home for the victory uncontested for his second win of the season at the track.

Stuhler, Myers, Kyle Lee and Colton Flinner rounded out the top five with Dylan Yoder, Trever Feathers, Chad Julius, Tim Smith Jr. and Hayes Mattern closing out the top ten. Mattern earned the $200 George's Used Cars Hard Charger award.

SHULTZ FENDS OFF BORDEN & HEIMBACH FOR FIRST 360 SPRINT CAR OPEN VICTORY;

DUKE & JONES TAKE 305 SPRINT CAR & ROADRUNNER CHECKERS

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Jason Shultz held off the challenges of Devon Borden and Blane Heimbach for his first win in the 30-lap, 22nd Annual Mach 1 Chassis Open for 360 sprint cars Saturday night at Selinsgrove Speedway.

Shultz, of Carlisle, earned $5,000 for his third victory in four 360 sprint car races at the track this season behind the wheel of the Ritter Racing/Selinsgrove Ford No. 35. Shultz also clinched the 360 sprint car series track title with the win.

Ken Duke of Selinsgrove drove to his second Selinsgrove win of the season in the 20-lap 305 sprint car feature, while Jake Jones of Hunlock Creek scored his fourth win of the year in the 12-lap roadrunner race.

Selinsgrove Speedway’s next race is slated for 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, July 19, featuring the 410 sprint cars and super late models in 25-lap main events paying $5,000 to win for the track’s 76th Anniversary Race.

Shultz started on the front row for the main event and pulled into the early lead. The caution flag unfurled after the completion of the first lap when Jason Wagner spun into the fourth turn wall.

When the race resumed, Shultz led polesitter Josh Weller and fourth-place starter Blane Heimbach in a high-speed chase. Heimbach took over second from Weller with five down as fifth-place starter Devon Borden advanced to third by lap seven.

The leaders began to encounter slower traffic by lap 10 and an exciting chase ensued for the top five positions. On the 15th circuit, sixth-place starter Briggs Danner, who was racing in the top five, developed engine failure while Heimbach pulled off a thrilling save in turn three when his car got completely sideways. Then the caution flag waved when Mike Thompson stopped in turn three.

On the lap 16 restart, Shultz and Borden see-sawed for the lead. Just as Borden made another pass for the lead the caution flag came out again when Jake Karklin tagged the backstretch wall.

For the final restart, Shultz remained in front of the pack with Borden being challenged for second by Heimbach again. In the final laps, Heimbach secured the runner up position and attempted to track down Shultz to no avail.

At the checkered flag, Shultz was victorious by just 1.8 seconds over Heimbach, Borden, third-place starter Mark Smith, and eighth-place starter Derek Locke.

In the 305 sprint car feature, Duke wired the field for the victory but not without several challenges coming from polesitter Domenic Melair. Eighth-place starter Garrett Bard quickly advanced to third.

At the halfway point, Duke and Melair were racing wheel-to-wheel for the lead until a caution flag broke up the intense battle. When the race went back to green, Duke kept his sprint car out in front with Melair in close pursuit.

In the final four laps, 10th-place starter Kenny Heffner stormed into third and set his sights on the leaders. At the checkered flag, Duke was victorious by only 1.3 seconds over Melair, Heffner, Doug Dodson, and Bard.

In the night-cap roadrunner race, points leader and second-place starter Nate Romig powered into the early lead. Romig was leading polesitter Jake Jones until the fourth lap when Jones made the winning pass on the frontstretch.

Romig later developed a flat tire from racing contact in turn three on lap six. In the second half of the race fifth-place starter Keith Bissinger stormed into second and reeled in Jones in a battle for the lead and win.

Jones held on for the win over Bissinger, Joe Condo, Terry Kramer, and Matt Ney.

Macri Storms From Eighth To Win Williams Grove Sprints, Bright Gets Second Oval USAC East Win Of Season

7/8/22

Mechanicsburg – Anthony Macri came from eighth starting spot to claim the 25-lap 410 sprint car feature at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night,

The win was Macri’s 15th overall of the season and his third of the year at the speedway.

In the 25-lap USAC East sprint car main, Alex Bright held off a late race charge by Briggs Danner by the narrowest of margins to score his second win of the year at the track.

Driving the Westbrook 1W, Robbie Kendall blasted from the pole position into the lead at the start of the 410 sprint feature, holding sway over Brent Shearer during the first half of the race.

Kendall entered the backmarkers on the seventh tour as Macri battled with TJ Stutts for third.

Macri took second from Shearer with a low move in the first corner on the 12th lap just before a caution flag slowed the pace, wiping out a 2.014 second lead built by Kendall.

On the restart, Macri blasted under Kendall deep in the first turn and then slid up into the lead as Kendall tried to fight back working the inside lane off of the turn two cushion.

But Macri pulled away once in front only to have his pace slowed with nine laps to go when Justin Whittall slowed to a stop.

Dylan Norris wrestled with Kendall for second on the restart and briefly took the spot before Kendall returned the favor to hold the position to the finish.

Macri’s margin of victory was 4.704 seconds.

With Indiana mechanic Bernie Steuben turning the wrenches on Macri’s No. 39M, the winner was happy to take the checkers.

“I had a fire under my ass and I felt like I had a point to prove,” he said.

Danny Dietrich started 16th and motored to third at the finish, claiming the PA Dyno Hard Charger Award.

Norris rode home fourth followed by Freddie Rahmer.

Sixth through 10th went to Chase Dietz, TJ Stutts, Brent Shearer, Mark Smith and Lucas Wolfe.

Heats went to Kendall, Stutts and Shearer with the consolation going to Billy Dietrich.

Carmen Perigo Jr. led the first 10 laps before seventh starter Alex Bright secured the top spot in the USAC East feature event.

Christian Bruno came to second with 10 laps to go but during the final 10 laps point leader Briggs Danner made his way into contention after starting eighth.

He took second from Bruno with four laps to go and began his pursuit of the leader, whom he caught up with during the final lap and a half.

Bright went into defense on the final lap, changing lanes to thwart Danner’s attack.

However Danner was able to get to his inside Bright coming out of turn four on the final lap before drag racing him to the finish line.

In what may have been considered a tie before the institution of electronic timing, Bright held on for the win by a scant .030 seconds.

Bruno was third followed by Steve Drevicki and Mark Smith.

Sixth through 10th went to Ed Aiken, Joey Amantea, Kenny Miller III., Carmen Perigo Jr. and Preson Lattomus.

Heats went to Tommy Kunsman and Drevicki.

MARKS CLINCHES FIRST CAREER PA SPEEDWEEK TITLE WITH FIVE SERIES WINS;

HEFFNER DRIVES TO FIRST SELINSGROVE 305 SPRINT CAR VICTORY

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – The 32nd Annual PA Speedweek Sprint Car Series came down to a thrilling pass by Danny Dietrich of Gettysburg with two laps to race in Sunday night’s 30-lap Opperman-Bogar-Heintzelman Memorial at Selinsgrove Speedway.

Dietrich drove by Brent Marks of Myerstown, who was going for his fifth win in a row and sixth in the nine-race series, in traffic to score the $10,099 victory. It was Dietrich’s first win in the series and at the track this season at the wheel of the Kauffman Racing/Weikert’s Livestock No. 48.

Marks clinched his first career PA Speedweek championship, finishing Sunday night’s race just 1.3 seconds behind Dietrich at the checkered flag. He was also the night’s Fast Tees Fast Qualifier with a lap time of 16.933.

Marks earned the $5,000 Selinsgrove Ford 10-for-10 bonus as he was the only driver to finish in the top 10 in all the series races. In fact, Marks finished in the top three positions in every event.

Kenny Heffner of Watsontown secured the lead at the halfway point of the 20-lap PASS/IMCA 305 sprint car feature and went on to score his first career win at Selinsgrove.

This Saturday, July 9, Selinsgrove Speedway will present the 22nd annual Mach 1 Chassis Open for 360 sprint cars paying $5,000 to win. Joining the 360 sprint cars will be the 305 sprint cars and roadrunners. The Eastern Museum of Motor Racing will also have a classic race car display. Gates will open at 5 p.m.

The 410 sprint car main event was a battle royale right out of the gate when polesitter Steve Buckwalter and third-place starter Brent Marks swapped the lead before the completion of the first lap.

For the first five laps, Marks and second-place starter Danny Dietrich closely chased Buckwalter. On the sixth circuit, Marks took command of the field with an inside pass on the backstretch. Sixth-place starter Justin Peck joined the battle in the fourth spot.

Dietrich advanced to second on lap 10 and began to reel in Marks. Meanwhile, an intense battle for the third position unfolded between Peck and fifth-place starter Rico Abreu.

Buckwalter’s solid night came to an end on lap 16 when his car rolled to a stop in turn four. When the race resumed, Marks maintained the lead using the bottom of the race track while Dietrich found momentum around the top.

The final 10 laps turned into an intense chase to the checkered flag as Marks and Dietrich navigated their way through slower traffic. Mike Walter, who started 11th, stormed into the top five in the closing laps.

Dietrich made the winning pass by Marks using the outside lane in turn two on the 28th lap. Marks attempted to reclaim the lead to no avail. Dietrich took the checkered flag by just 1.3 seconds over Marks, Peck, Walter, and Abreu.

In the 305 sprint car feature, second-place starter Josh Spicer pulled into the early lead over fourth-place starter Kenny Heffner. A caution flag on lap five for a spin in turns three and four regrouped the field.

Through the midway point of the race, Spicer and Heffner see-sawed for the lead. On the 10th circuit, Heffner secured the lead and began to pull away from the field. With four laps to go, fifth-place starter Tyler Snook drove into second and set his sights on the leader.

COMING EVENTS:

Aug 5: @7:00 pm Fan Appreciation Night $5 admission USAC East Coast Sprints + ARDC Midgets + 305 Sprints + FWD 4-Cylinder Stocks

July 13 Super DIRTcar Series Modified event at Bloomsburg Fair Raceway will not be held; New truckloads of clay being added to surface

(BLOOMBURG 7-3-22): Bloomsburg Fair Raceway has announced that the Super DIRTcar Series Modified event slated for Wednesday, July 13, has been canceled.

Raceway officials, along with those from World Racing Group, the sanctioning body of the Super DIRTcar Series, have jointly agreed that it is in the best interest of both parties to not run the planned 75-lap feature at this time, as new clay is in the process of being laid down in an ongoing effort to improve on the racing surface.

It was a mutual understanding between both parties to hold off on conducting the show as they felt the upgraded surface would not be ready in time for the said date. The PASS 305 Sprint Cars were also on the docket on that night.

On Monday and Tuesday of this past week 75 trucks loads of new clay was laid down in all four corners. Throughout the day as trucks continued to drop off clay it was then spread into place across the banking and will be worked on more so in the coming days.

This has led to a few items in regards to the July 13 race. The timing of getting the new clay was part of the setback with logistics of the trucks hauling in the product and other dates in-between at the facility have all been taken into consideration.

There is presently additional shows underway at the Fairgrounds and, that along with having the surface in the best possible condition for racing, it was best felt to hold off on the Super DIRTcar show while the track is in the process of being refined.

At this time there is no make-up date in place.

The Super DIRTcar Series will still make its long-awaited return to Pennsylvania at Big Diamond Speedway in Minersville on Tuesday, July 12 and if needed the Wednesday July 13 will be used as a rain date.

The next event for Bloomsburg Fair Raceway will be on Friday, August 5 with Fan Appreciation Night. Grandstand general admission will be just $5 and include a four division program comprised of the USAC East Coast Sprints, ARDC Midgets, Winged 305 Sprints and the FWD 4-Cylinder Stocks.

Wlliams Grove 358 Sprint Match Race Just One Month Away

Deadline to donate for matching funds is July 22!

7/3/22

Mechanicsburg – A new and exciting event for the HJ Towing and Recovery 358 sprints is just over a month away at Williams Grove Speedway.

The 358 Sprint Match Race is coming up at the track as part of Billy Kimmel Memorial night on Friday, August 5.

The Match Race is a special event for the limited sprint cars that posts not only a standard Williams Grove 358 sprint purse but it also offers the opportunity for the 358 field to race for thousands and thousands more in purse money.

The increase beyond the standard purse would be thanks to potential donations and “Match Funds" put into the pot by any sponsors, fans AND the track.

Williams Grove Speedway will match up to $5,000 in additional purse money as donated to the field by all who care to pitch in.

And a big announcement regarding the Match Race is expected within days.

Donations of any size and amount are welcome!

No donation to the 358 sprint drivers will be considered too small!

Fans, businesses, competitors, product manufacturers and even drivers are all invited to donate to the purse and Williams Grove Speedway will match the first 5K in total combined funds that are posted, divvying up the amount and any surplus evenly to all 24 cars in the feature field.

Any total amount over and above the combined total of $10,000 that is donated to the field will not be matched but will still be distributed evenly throughout the entire field.

All donations must be received in the Williams Grove Speedway business office by the end of the day on July 22, 2022.

The 358 sprint car season is shaping up to be quite competitive at Williams Grove Speedway as three races so far have produced three different winners in the form of Derek Locke, Frankie Herr and most recently Tyler Brehm.

And in fact all three men are within 30 points of one another at the top of the 358 sprint point standings.

Donations for the Match Race will be accepted via credit card, money order or personal check.

Marks Bags Williams Grove Smith Memorial, Holds Speedweek Point Lead

7/1/22

MECHANICSBURG, PA – Brent Marks picked up his fourth Pennsylvania

Sprint Car Speedweek win in his last five starts with a win in the

Mitch Smith Memorial Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway.

The victory was worth $15,000 for the Speedweek point leader and was

his 10th overall win of the season.

“This car is really good and this team is really good,” Marks said. “I

felt a little off in the beginning. We had to work on the car to get

it better during the open red. Didn’t feel all that good right after

that and I was a little worried, but the longer we ran, the better it

got.”

Marks shot into the lead riding high on the cushion. Rico Abreu

wrestled the second spot away from Dylan Norris during the opening

laps.

Marks quickly built a 2.7-second lead over Abreu in only five laps. He

started lapping slower cars as well. They didn’t hold him up as he

quickly put three cars between himself and Abreu.

Marks’ big lead was erased with nine laps completed when Logan Wagner

spun in tun two bringing out the yellow flag. A broken rear axle was

the cause.

Marks controlled the restart as Anthony Macri passed Robbie Kendall

and Troy Wagaman Jr. advancing to fourth spot.

Lance Dewease made hard contact with the inside frontstretch fence

bringing out another yellow with 10 laps completed. Dewease was okay,

but done for the night.

An incident on the restart kept the field under yellow. Austin Bishop

and Lucas Wolfe were involved and Justin Peck also stopped on the

frontstretch. The cars were stopped allowing crews to refuel.

Macri and Norris battled for third after the restart with Macri

getting the spot as Marks got away from Abreu.

His lead was 1.56 at the half-way point. He closed on the back of the

field once again with Abreu and Macri in tow.

The lead was a little less as he started lapping slower cars.

Two cars were right in front of Marks running the cushion with 19 laps

complete. This allowed Abreu to close under a second. Marci wasn’t far

behind in third.

Marks used the inside line to lap two cars. This allowed him to get

some breathing room over Abreu.

The lead was back up to 1.3-second with seven to go.

Macri blasted under Abreu in turn three taking over the second spot.

Abreu tried to take it back in turn one, but Macri secured the spot.

He closed on Marks with three laps left. Marks got around a lapped car

and Macri slipped up a bit on the second turn cushion.

Marks took the white flag, but a slower car took his top line entering

turn one. Marks tried the middle, but lost a lot of speed. He spun his

tires down the backstretch with Macri coming with a head of steam.

Macri tried a slider in turn three, but couldn’t clear the pass as

Marks raced clean off turn four to the checkers by just over a second.

Abreu completed the podium.

“I made a mistake with that lapped car,” Marks said. “I got myself

stuck in the middle. I knew Anthony got into second and I knew he’d be

coming in a hurry. When I spun the tires, I figured he had a run on

me. I went into turn three and held it wide open and hoped for the

best.”

Norris and 13th starter Danny Dietrich completed the top five. Robbie

Kendall, Troy Wagaman Jr., Freddie Rahmer, Ryan Smith, and Justin Peck

rounded out the top 10.

TJ Stutts set quick time over the 32-car field with a lap of 16.805.

Anthony Macri, Justin Peck, Brent Marks and Lucas Wolfe were the top

five qualifiers. Dylan Norris, Rico Abreu, Robbie Kendall and Troy

Wagaman Jr. won the heat races. Kyle Reinhardt won the B-main.

Brent Marks Scores First Port Royal Win of 2022 with Red Robin Pennsylvania Speedweek Triumph

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway– PORT ROYAL, Pa. (June 30, 2022) – After a year full of near-misses, Brent Marks capitalized on a front-row starting spot to score his first Port Royal Speedway victory of the 2022 racing season during Wednesday night’s Night 6 of Red Robin Racing Pennsylvania Speedweek event.

After added contingency prizes, Marks earned a total of $7300 for his 13th career Port Royal Speedway triumph. The win was Marks’ second of the 2022 PA Speedweek series and vaulted the Myerstown, Pa. native to the top spot in the series standings with four races remaining.

Anthony Macri and Marks led the field of 24 410 Sprint Cars to the green flag and Marks got the early jump on the field through the middle of turn's one and two to lead the opening circuit. After starting fourth on the grid, Logan Wagner made his presence felt early as well as he got by Macri to take the runner-up spot on the opening lap as well.

Marks quickly distanced himself from Wagner and the rest of the field and by lap five he held more than a 1.3 second advantage. However, the caution flew three laps later when Justin Whittall came to a stop on the backstretch to put the field on Marks’ tail.

Marks again took off the restart, while weekend invader Kyle Larson was starting to show his muscle as he moved into the fourth spot after lining up from the fifth position. With 20 laps remaining in the 30-lap A-main, Larson used the extreme high side of the Speedway to get by Macri for the final podium position, while Wagner was uncharacteristically using the low side to reel in the leader.

Marks moved to the top of the Speedway in an effort to thwart the momentum Wagner had found on the bottom and the move worked as he again started to stretch out his lead. Meanwhile, Larson was coming fast as he got by Wagner for the runner-up spot and started chipping away at the leader.

With 10 laps remaining, Larson had closed to less than a second behind the leader, while Macri had regrouped and was quickly coming back into the picture. However, his chances at picking up his seventh Port Royal Speedway victory of the season came to a close with eight laps remaining when he blew an engine entering turn three to bring out the caution.

Marks took off again on the restart, but all eyes were on Larson, who had a noticeably low right-rear tire during the caution break. Both Wagner’s capitalized on Larson’s issues and they moved into second and third respectively on the restart.

Larson’s hopes at a third career PA Speedweek victory at the Speed Palace came to a close with four laps remaining when the right-rear tire finally let loose and he came to a stop in turn four on the outside guardrail.

Larson didn’t rejoin the field and the restart gave Logan Wagner an opportunity to take his shot at Marks. However, Marks was too strong and pulled away with ease. He went on to pick up the victory by a margin of 3.110 seconds.

Mike Wagner got by his song for second in the closing laps while the younger Wagner finished third. Lance Dewease and Justin Peck rounded out the top five. Dylan Cisney, Lucas Wolfe, TJ Stutts, Rico Abreu and Freddie Rahmer completed the top ten.

Stutts earned the $500 Valley Supply Hard Charger after starting 23rd on the grid and advancing 15 positions while Danny Dietrich scored the J&S Classics $1000 Warrior Award via a random draw of 13. Heat races were won by Mike Wagner, Marks, Larson and Macri and they all scored an additional $100 courtesy of Smokin Gun Fabrication for their efforts. Logan Wagner scored an additional $500 courtesy of Packer's Concessions, LLC., PennsValley MeatMarket and Jakes Golf Carts, LLC as the night’s fast time award winner.

410 Sprint Car Feature Results: 1. Brent Marks; 2. Mike Wagner; 3. Logan Wagner; 4. Lance Dewease; 5. Justin Peck; 6. Dylan Cisney; 7. Lucas Wolfe; 8. T.J. Stutts; 9. Rico Abreu; 10. Freddie Rahmer; 11. Dave Blaney; 12. Jeff Halligan; 13. Danny Dietrich; 14. Brock Zearfoss; 15. Christopher Bell; 16. Chase Dietz; 17. Ryan Timms; 18. Kyle Larson; 19. Anthony Macri; 20. Justin Whittall; 21. Blane Heimbach; 22. Sye Lynch; 23. Tyler Reeser; 24. Michael Walter II.

Mark Smith took the lead during the United Racing Club 360 Sprint Car feature on lap seven and never looked back during a caution littered A-main event Wednesday night.

Smith won $2000 for the triumph, which was his second career URC sanctioned victory at the Speed Palace and his first since 2016.

Frankie Herr and Josh Weller contended early and Weller settled into the second position for the majority of the event before blowing a left-rear tire with one lap remaining following contact with a lapped car.

The caution forced Speedway officials to checker the event and call it final with one lap remaining as the time approached curfew.

Jason Shultz, Derek Locke, Dallas Schott and Frankie Herr rounded out the top five while Mike Thompson, Mike Kiser, Devin Adams, Cody Fletcher and Tyler Denochick completed the top ten.

NAPA AUTO PARTS THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES PRESENTED BY LEVAN MACHINE & TRUCK EQUIPMENT. . . . . .

RICO ABREU HOLDS OFF ALL CHALLENGERS TO WIN THE HODNETT CUP AND $10,000, BRETT KRESSLEY TOPS MODIFIEDS IN THUNDER ON THE HILL TUESDAY NIGHT

BECHTELSVILLE, PA (June 28, 2022) – It was a beautiful night of racing presented by Levan Machine and Truck Equipment with a full house of spectators to watch the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series doubleheader. Rico Abreu of St Helena, California claimed his first 410 Sprint Car win on ‘the Hill’ as part of Pennsylvania Speedweek presented by Red Robin and Brett Kressley won the 358 Modified portion of the event.

Abreu claimed $10,000 and the Hodnett Cup trophy for his efforts in a race that proved tricky for the leaders barely dodging multiple incidents and avoiding fighting through heavy-lapped traffic.

“We had some breaks with cautions,” Abreu said in post-race ceremonies. “But you have to do everything right to get those breaks in the first place.”

Abreu may have started on the pole but it wasn’t easy for the California native with Christopher Bell moving from inside row 2 into the second position on the start. Abreu fired off fast, approaching a full-straight lead by the fourth circuit with lapped traffic quickly approaching.

With Abreu in a comfortable lead, the battle for second heated up, between Brent Marks and Bell – but a Lap 7 yellow slowed the field when Dylan Norris spun directly in front of the leaders.

On the restart, Rico shot to the high side of the one-third-mile speedway with Marks moving passed Bell and Anthony Macri powering around the outside of Kyle Larson.

Marks pressured Abreu as the laps ticked away, approaching lapped traffic until the red flag flew on lap 14 for Kyle Larson, whose No. 57 machine tipped on its side with a broken rear end.

Abreu continued on the restart, racing around the inside of the speedway while Marks rode around the high side hot on his heels.

The final caution flew on lap 23 for Zach Hampton, who spun in front of the leaders.

Just over ten laps remained on the scoreboard, Abreu took the green flag creating some distance between himself and the battle for second between Anthony Macri and Brent Marks.

Heavy lapped traffic challenged the leaders in the late stages, as the top five positions were nose-to-tail when the white flag flew, but Abreu held them off to claim his third Pennsylvania Speedweek win.

Anthony Macri finished in the second spot, Brent Marks in third, Danny Dietrich in fourth, and Christopher Bell finished in fifth

Macri also picked up the $150 Quick Time Bonus from Clever Girl Winery for the 410 Sprint Cars. Qualifying Heat Races were won by Rico Abreu, Justin Peck, Tanner Thorson, and Kyle Larson.

Brett Kressley picked up his third NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series win on Tuesday night passing Jared Umbenhauer in the second half of the 30-lap feature.

Mike Lisowski led the twenty-four car field to the drop of the green flag with Umbenhauer taking the lead on the second circuit of the event. Umbenhauer dominated the early stages of the race, before Kressley – who started in the fifth position – closed quickly and overtook the top spot with the help of side-by-side lapped traffic.

The only caution of the event flew on lap 26 when Ron Kline stopped at the top of the speedway with a right rear flat tire.

Kressley rolled on to the $3,000 win with Duane Howard moving into the second position on the restart, Umbenhauer settling for third, Alex Yankowski in fourth, and Billy Pauch jr. in the fifth position.

GT Radiator Repair $200 Fast Time for the 358 Modifieds was won by Jared Umbenhauer with a lap of 14.272. Modified Qualifying Heat Races were won by Rick Laubach, Ron Kline, and Craig Whitmoyer who all claimed a $200 bonus from GT Radiator Repair.

The NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series returns on Tuesday, August 2 with the Big-Block Modifieds and Small-Block Modifieds competing in the ‘Roaring’ Triple 20s event. The 602 Sportsman round out an exciting program of racing action.

Saturday, July 16, 2022 (7:30PM) DEAN’S AUTO PLAZA NIGHT: 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints and Super Sportsman (Tour Series Event)

Abbottstown, PA (June 27, 2022) – Brent Marks put on a show Monday night at Lincoln as he drove from his 13th starting spot to the lead in 19 laps. On his way to the front of the field Marks passed Christopher Bell, Anthony Macri and Kyle Larson, “We had a really good car there. We tried something a little different there for the feature, starting a little deeper, something we learned on Saturday. It rotated the bottom really nice.”

Marks’ starting position for the 30-lap feature was a result of his time trial results putting him deep in his heat race line-up, “We started the night off really bad and honestly wasn’t expecting to be standing up here today.”

After Marks worked his way through to battle the reigning NASCAR Champion, Larson, for the lead, the packed crowd was on their feet and when Marks made the pass for the lead you could hear the cheers over the horsepower on the track, “Had a great crowd out here for a Monday night and the track turned out to be a lot of fun.”

The front row for the start of Night #5 of PA Speedweek was made up of Kyle Larson, the reigning NASCAR Champion, and Troy Wagaman, a local driver from Hanover that comes to the track with his car on an open trailer.

Larson shot to the lead when the green flag dropped with Wagaman and Macri in tow, but the red flag came out before the field completed a lap. Billy Dietrich got upside down in turn 2 with Gerard McIntyre and Dylan Norris also involved. After the red came out Danny Dietrich flipped in turns 3 and 4.

Danny needed a top wing replaced and the crew was nearly done when the green flag dropped again for the complete restart. Luck was on Danny’s side as the red came out again on the restart giving him the break he needed to rejoin the field. Unfortunately for Chad Trout, luck was not on his side as he flipped in turn 1 after contact with Zach Hampton on the front stretch.

The third time was a charm as the field got around the 3/8-mile oval without any incident and the feature was underway. Larson took the lead with Wagaman in second as Justin Peck and Anthony Macri raced for third.

Macri got by Wagaman for second at the line but Wagaman took the spot back in turns 1 and 2. Wagaman continued to hold off Macri as Marks had worked his way up to fifth from his 13th starting spot on lap 4. Marks got by Peck at the line to take fourth on lap 5 and then made it a three-car battle for second with Wagaman and Macri. Marks took third from Macri on lap 7 and then moved into second when he got Wagaman by inches at the line on lap 9.

Larson found himself in lapped traffic on lap 10. Marks closed in on Larson as they raced through lapped traffic. Wagaman and Macri continued to battle for position as they worked around lapped cars.

Marks got under Larson for the lead in 1 but Larson took the lead back at the line by half a car length. Marks got by Larson as they raced down the back stretch and took the lead on lap 19.

Peck got by Wagaman for fourth but Wagaman battled back to reclaim the spot. The caution came out on lap 21 for Dylan Norris who sat spun around in turn 2.

Marks led Larson, Macri, Wagaman and Peck on the restart. Marks got a good jump but Larson looked to his outside in turns 1 and 2 but could not make the pass.

Larson stuck with Marks for a handful of laps, but Marks was too good on the bottom and started to pull away.

Marks scored the $7,000 Speedweek win 2.132 seconds ahead of Larson. Macri finished third and Wagaman was fourth. Peck completed the top five.

Skylar Gee set quick-time over the 42-car field with a lap of 13.823 seconds. The heat race wins went to Austin Bishop, Jeff Halligan, Troy Wagaman and Anthony Macri.

This Saturday, July 2, Lincoln Speedway is back in action with the Monster Truck Freedom Fest featuring Monster Trucks and Central PA Legends. Racing starts at 7PM with gates opening at 2PM.

Williams Grove Honors Career, Impact & Legacy Of Mitch Smith Friday

34th annual running of Mitch Smith Memorial on tap

6/26/22

Mechanicsburg – When Williams Grove Speedway gets down to action on Friday night, it will do so for the 34th year in a row in honor of a famed sprint car great, the late Mitch Smith of Linglestown.

The oval will host the RHI Magnesita 34th annual Mitch Smith Memorial as part of Pennsylvania Speedweek on July 1 at 7:30 pm.

And the race to honor Smith will pay a lucrative $15,000 to win out of the largest total speedweek purse to be posted in all 2022 series events to go along with the largest amount to win.

Richard D. “Mitch” Smith was the original “Mr. Excitement” of Pennsylvania sprint car lore.

At Williams Grove Speedway alone he ended his four-decade long career in 1978 with 27 sprint car wins and nine super modified victories.

But overall on his career, his checkered flags added up to 179.

The name Mitch Smith became cemented nationally when in 1971 the “little guy” from Linglestown trounced the boasting stars of the United States Auto Club, not once, but three times when they towed into the region.

In 1971, USAC was to sprint car racing what the World of Outlaws is today.

USAC competition was the way to Indy. The USAC circuit groomed its drivers to sit on the Indy 500 starting grid.

And start they did.

But on June 19 and September 25 at Williams Grove Speedway in 1971 and again on July 17 at Selinsgrove Speedway, Mitch Smith used a rarely doled out temporary racing permit issued by USAC to just a few local drivers to beat the traveling band – badly.

The USAC stars were furious.

Protests were lodged and tear-downs were performed.

All was legal.

Smith had beaten the unquestionable best in the sprint car business not once, not twice but three times.

The word went out.

“The Linglestown Leadfoot,” Mitch Smith, had trounced USAC in Central Pennsylvania.

Smith retired from the sport in 1978 and in 1988 at the age of 58 was felled by a massive heart attack.

In 1995 Mitch Smith was inducted posthumously into the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame in Knoxville, Iowa.

It is the legacy left behind and the impact that Smith had on the sport in the region and at Williams Grove Speedway that the oval honors again this year with the running of the 34th annual Mitch Smith Memorial on Friday night.

Lance Dewease is the defending winner of the prestigious Mitch Smith Memorial.

Dewease took the lead from Matt Campbell on lap 11 in last year’s event to speed to the checkers.

Dewease is the winningest driver in Smith Memorial history, having scored wins in 1992, 1995, 1997, 2001, 2018 and in 2021.

Fred Rahmer has four Smith Memorials to his credit along with the late Greg Hodnett.

Stevie Smith won the inaugural event in 1989.

 

 

34th Annual Mitch Smith Memorial Is Friday Night At Williams Grove

Speedweek Crown Jewel Boasts Largest Total Purse And Largest Winner’s Share Again In 2022

6/26/22

Mechanicsburg - Williams Grove Speedway will again present the biggest race of the Pennsylvania Speedweek Series this Friday night, July 1 at 7:30 pm when it hosts the RHI Magnesita 34th annual Mitch Smith Memorial for 410 sprint cars.

Known for decades as The Crown Jewel of Speedweek, the Mitch Smith Memorial will pay a hefty $15,000 to win out of a total purse worth over $43,000.

The RHI Magnesita Mitch Smith Memorial honors the late, great Richard “Mitch” Smith of Linglestown who succumbed to a massive heart attack in 1988, some 10 years after retiring.

Smith left the sport in 1978 after a four-decade long career wherein he scored 27 sprint car wins and nine super modified victories at Williams Grove alone to go along with 179 overall checkered flags.

Time trials will set the starting grids for the Friday Smith Memorial with the main event going 30-laps in distance.

The fastest driver in qualifying time trials will earn the $300 Fast Tees Fast Time Award, courtesy of Fast Tees Screenprinting of Thompsontown.

The Smith Memorial will be another race in the 2022 Hoosier Diamond Series at the track.

The special speedweek event will be a stand-alone sprint car program, highlighting the speedweek 410 sprint cars.

Fireworks will also be part of the Independence Day holiday weekend show.

Adult general admission for the race is set at $25 with youth ages 13 – 20 admitted for $10. Kids ages 12 and under are always admitted for FREE at Williams Grove Speedway.

RHI Magnesita is the leading global supplier of high-grade refractory products, systems and solutions which are critical for high-temperature processes exceeding 1,200°C in a wide range of industries,

No driver owns more wins in the speedweek event than six-time event champion Lance Dewease.

Dewease is the defending race champion.

Among others, previous winners have included Joey Allen, Alan Krimes, Daryn Pittman, Trey Starks, Don Kreitz Jr. Fred Rahmer, Greg Hodnett and Danny Dietrich.

Anthony Macri kicked off speedweek at Williams Grove on June 24 by claiming the series opener.

Abbottstown, PA (June 25, 2022) – The winningest 410 sprint car driver in the country, Anthony Macri, won the Kevin Gobrecht Memorial presented by Drydene at Lincoln on Saturday as part of PA Sprint Speedweek. Macri’s win was his second in two nights as he took the Speedweek opener on Friday at Williams Grove Speedway.

Macri set quick time over the 47-car field with a lap of 13.285 seconds. After qualifying for the 30-lap feature through his heat, Macri drew the pole for the feature, “I knew starting on the pole we’d have to start with a pretty good pace and I’d have to be pretty aggressive in lapped traffic.”

When you’re the hottest driver in the country the spotlight shines bright on your successes and failures brining both positive and negative attention. Victory lane was lively after Macri’s win, “That’s win number 14 on the year. We’ll let our success do the talking and continue on to the rest of the week.” With his win, Macri currently sits atop the overall Speedweek point standings.

Night #2 of Pennsylvania Sprint Speedweek saw Anthony Macri draw the pole for the second night in a row. Troy Wagaman, on a streak of three top-3 finishes started on the outside of the front row for the $9,200 to win Kevin Gobrecht Memorial presented by Drydene.

Macri led the field into turn 1 with Freddie Rahmer moving into second sending Wagaman to third. Justin Peck, Chase Dietz and Jeff Halligan raced three-wide for fourth with Peck taking the spot. The yellow flag came out on lap 2 when Landon Myers got sideways and collected Justin Whittall and Alan Krimes in turn 2.

Macri led Rahmer, Wagaman, Peck and Dietz to the cone for the restart. Rahmer stuck with Macri on the restart and went higher than Macri into turn 1 but could not make the pass. Peck passed Wagaman for third and Halligan got by Dietz for fifth.

Dietz was looking to take fifth back from Halligan and Brent Marks joined to make it a three-car battle for the spot.

Dietz won the battle to take fifth with Marks settling for sixth and Halligan seventh. Marks got by Dietz at the line for fifth on lap 8. Macri caught lapped traffic on lap 9. Peck was closing on Rahmer as they closed in on the tail end of the field.

Marks reeled in Wagaman and passed him for fourth in turn 2 taking the spot on lap 15.

Macri was working his way through lapped traffic creating a lot of space between him and Rahmer. Peck made a move for second in turn 2 nearly allowing Marks to get by him. Zach Hampton brought out the caution on lap 19 when he spun in turn 4.

The top five for the restart were Macri, Rahmer, Peck, Marks and Wagaman.

Macri had a solid restart getting a good jump on Rahmer. Peck dove into turn 3 with a slider to take second from Rahmer on lap 20. Rahmer tried to return the favor in turn 2, but Peck held the spot.

Marks went to work on Rahmer for third and the two were wheel to wheel at the line on lap 23 with Rahmer holding on to the spot. Marks took third on lap 24.

Macri entered lapped traffic again with four laps to go. Peck was running the high line around the track in an attempt to close in on the leader but Macri was too far gone.

Macri won the $9,200 by 1.495 seconds over Peck. Marks was third and Rahmer crossed the line fourth. Dietz worked his way back up to finish fifth.

The 410 heat races were won by Troy Wagaman, Jeff Halligan, Chase Dietz and Lucas Wolfe.

Hunter Fulton Victorious in Extreme Stocks

Pole-sitter Donnie Broderick took the lead when the green flag dropped with Marshall McMullen and Doug Hoffman racing wheel to wheel for second. McMullen got under Broderick to challenge for the lead but Broderick held the spot. Sam Rial was up to third from his fifth starting spot and used the outside to take second from McMullen.

Rial was in the lead when the yellow flag came out on lap 3 when John Wright and Jim Rost Jr. got together. Rial stopped on the track under caution, sending him to the rear for the restart.

McMullen and Broderick race side by side for the lead with Broderick holding the position.

Doug Hoffman and Bob Scott Jr. battled side by side for third. Broderick got high in turn 4 letting McMullen by to take the lead on lap 7. McMullen’s lead was short lived as Scott took the top spot from him on lap 8.

Hunter Fulton was running second and putting pressure on Scott for the lead when the caution came out on lap 12 for debris. The yellow came out again on lap 14 when Hoffman stopped in turns 3 and 4.

After having to restart at the rear of the field earlier in the race, Rial was back up to fourth for the restart. Jordan Fulton brought out the caution on lap 16 and then lap 17 saw the yellow fly for debris in turn 2.

Fulton looked to the outside of Scott for the lead and the two were wheel to wheel at the line. Fulton took the lead coming out of turn 2.

The final caution of the 25-lap feature came on lap 20 for Jim Rost. Rial went to the outside of McMullen on the restart to take third.

Fulton crossed the line ahead of Scott, Rial, McMullen and Justin Yohn.

Macri Opens Speedweek At Williams Grove With Win, Tyler Brehm Scores First In 358 Sprints

6/24/22

Mechanicsburg – Anthony Macri won the opening night of Pennsylvania Speedweek at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, scoring a $7,001 victory for his second win of the season at the track.

Elsewhere, Tyler Brehm scored the first career win of his Williams Grove career in the 358 sprint car division.

Macri and Justin Peck started the 30-lap speedweek main on the front row with Macri beating Peck into the first turn by the narrowest of margins.

Peck went in to Macri’s outside but Macri made the car wide enough to prevent a Peck sweep into the lead.

Dylan Cisney then slowed for the first caution flag of the race with three laps completed.

By lap eight Macri had a 1.6 second lead over Peck and Brent Marks however he soon came upon the backmarkers by lap 10.

In dirty air, Macri’s speed was held back as Peck and Marks battled for second with Marks taking his first swipe at the spot on lap 13 only to see Peck regain it.

A lap later Marks tried it again in the first turn but again Peck prevailed before Marks took the spot at the halfway point to begin chasing down the leader.

The pair of Marks and Peck was challenging Macri for control as the trio ran through traffic on lap 18 when Danny Dietrich slowed just enough to bring out the caution before again firing off after the yellow unfurled.

The caution flag broke up a thrilling race at the front as clean air gave Macri new life when action resumed.

Peck took a shot at Marks for second on the restart as Macri again got away to a 1.6 second lead with five laps to go.

Traffic again came into play during the final few laps but by then it was too late for Marks to close as he instead crossed the finish line .959 seconds behind.

Peck rode home third followed by Lance Dewease and TJ Stutts.

Sixth through 10th went to Dylan Norris, Freddie Rahmer, Devon Borden, Lucas Wolfe and Chase Dietz.

Heats went to Stutts, Wolfe and Marks with Robbie Kendall taking the consolation race.

Macri set fast time with a lap of 167.842 seconds.

It was the Dillsburg driver’s fifth career sprint car win at Williams Grove.

“As soon as we got into traffic, the car got extremely tight,” Macri said.

“I had to keep playing with the wing. Luckily, I found a position with the wing that was kind of okay. We still weren’t perfect when we got to lapped traffic.”

After polesitter Chad Criswell slowed on the first lap of the 20-lap 358 sprint car feature, the event would go non-stop.

Devon Adams took the lead on the first lap with Tyler Brehm giving chase.

Brehm took his first shot for the lead with an inside turn three move on the fourth lap but Adams was up to that challenge.

However a lap later Brehm made the move stick to drive into control.

The leader entered the backmarkers with nine laps to go while Kody Hartlaub raced into the second spot shortly after.

Brehm worked his way through traffic to take the checkers with style by 2.152 seconds over Hartlaub.

Derek Locke was third followed by Adams and Doug Hammaker.

Sixth through 10th went to Frankie Herr, Kyle Denmyer, Steve Owings, Cameron Smith and Steve Wilbur.

Heats went to Kyle Keen, Criswell and Adams with Cody Fletcher taking the consolation race.

PA Dyno Hard Chargers were Ryan Smith in the 410 sprints and Derek Locke in the 358 sprints.

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY PA SPEEDWEEK OPPERMAN-BOGAR-HEINTZELMAN MEMORIAL

FOR 410 SPRINT CARS WILL NOW PAY $10,099 TO WIN SUNDAY, JULY 3;

FAMILY OF RALPH HEINTZELMAN SR. MAKES CONTRIBUTION TO THIS YEAR’S RACE TO HONOR

HIS RECENT INDUCTION INTO NATIONAL SPRINT CAR HALL OF FAME

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – When the 410 sprint cars return to Selinsgrove Speedway on Sunday, July 3, for the Middleswarth Potato Chips PA Speedweek Opperman-Bogar-Heintzelman Memorial, they will be racing for $10,099 to win thanks to a generous contribution from the family of Ralph Heintzelman Sr. to honor his recent induction into the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame.

Members of the Bogar family and others are also making contributions to this year’s race to make it one of the four biggest payoffs for this year’s 10-race, 32nd Annual PA Speedweek Series presented by Red Robin. Grandstand and pit gates will open at 4 p.m. with qualifying slated for 7:30 p.m. Selinsgrove will use a rain date of Monday, July 4, if needed.

The 30-lap main event for the Lelands.com 410 sprint cars will now offer a purse of more than $35,000. Time trials, heat races, and a B-main will be the qualifying format. The Fast Tees Fast Time Award will pay $300. Joining the 410 sprint cars on the open wheel doubleheader will be the Apache Tree Service 305 sprint cars in a 20-lap main event.

Two previous 410 sprint car races at the track this season were won by Anthony Macri of Dillsburg and Gio Scelzi of Fresno, Calif. Brent Marks of Myerstown is the defending PA Speedweek winner at Selinsgrove.

A native of Beaver Springs, Ralph Heintzelman Sr. was arguably one of the sport’s best race car builders and mechanics in Pennsylvania in the 1970’s. He was hired by sprint car owner Luke “Dick” Bogar of Selinsgrove to wrench for driver Jan Opperman of California. The result was a stunning 44-win season in 1972 for the No. 99 team. Together, the trio won Opperman’s only sprint car track title at Selinsgrove a year later in 1973.

When Opperman left to race for USAC, Heintzelman kept going with driver Lynn Paxton and others. Before a devastating garage fire in 1980, Heintzelman was building chassis that were winning races across the country. He passed away in August of 2019 at the age of 81 and was inducted posthumously into the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame on June 4 of this year.

The legendary Opperman, who won 19 sprint car races at Selinsgrove and also competed in the Indianapolis 500 during his career, passed away in September of 1997. Bogar, who was a prominent local businessman in the Selinsgrove area, died in October of 2014.

Speedweek Begins At Williams Grove Friday With Billy Pauch As Guest

410 sprints to race for $7,001 to win, 358 sprints also in action

Fans Get To Visit With Pauch and Car Owners Pre-race Before Book Signing

6/19/22

Mechanicsburg – The 32nd annual Pennsylvania Speedweek Series for 410 sprint cars will kickoff this Friday, June 24 at Williams Grove Speedway.

Kiely Construction will present the Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprints in the speedweek opener going 30 laps in distance and paying $7,001 to win.

The HJ Towing and Recovery 358 sprint cars will also be in action for the speedweek opener.

Time trials will begin at 7:30 pm with gates opening at 5:30.

The race is another in the 2022 Hoosier Diamond Series of races at the oval.

The Pennsylvania Speedweek Series runs June 24 through July 3 at area ovals with Williams Grove’s second race of the series on July 1 boasting the largest payout to win at $15,000 for the Mitch Smith Memorial.

Legendary modified and sprint car driver Billy Pauch of Frenchtown, New Jersey will be a special guest at the speedweek opener.

Pauch recently put his career on hold in April after getting the season underway and picking up a modified win.

And while stopping short of announcing his full retirement; the now 65-year old pilot has just released his biography.

With over 740 total career wins to his credit since his first in 1975, Pauch put up his biggest numbers in the modified ranks over the seasons.

But his numbers in a sprint car stand at 62 alone and it’s that portion of his career that Williams Grove will honor at the speedweek lidlifter.

Pauch is perhaps best known for his near decade spent in the potent Zemco No. 1 sprint car during the 1990s.

And to help pay tribute to Pauch’s career, Zemco car owner John Zemaitis and his current driver Logan Wagner will be in attendance for the speedweek opener.

The Zemco No. 1 will be on display in the Williams Grove infield beginning at 5:30 before while Pauch and three of his former car owners gather at the stage from 6 to 6:30 pm for interviews and autographs.

The acclaimed driver will then host a book signing of his biography, “THE LAST COWBOY: The Life and Times of Billy Pauch,”

Joining Pauch for the event will be Zemco owner Zemaitis along with No. 126 car owner Glen Hyneman and No. 55 car owner Gene Jenkins of Milton.

A plaque presentation honoring Pauch’s sprint car career will be presented following time trials and Pauch will again sign books in the infield immediately after the speedweek B Main.

Known to many as “Billy The Kid” during his career, Pauch put up 15 sprint car wins during his tenure at Williams Grove while overall laying claim to victories over the World of Outlaws, All Stars, USAC, CRA, SCRA and KARS.

In 1994 Pauch toured the New York State Fairgrounds mile at world record speed and became the world’s fastest sprint car driver, posting a speed of 144.590 mph.

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

Event sponsor J.F. Kiely Construction Co. performs work for publicly traded utility companies, energy companies, municipalities, and private entities while employing hundreds of team members in multiple locations throughout the Northeast.

Kiely innovatively designs, builds, and restores the infrastructure of the nation, helping communities grow safer and more connected.

Last year in speedweek action at Williams Grove, Lance Dewease swept both shows while on his way to the track title.

Danny Dietrich is the reigning Pennsylvania Speedweek champion.

Chase Dietz is entering the Williams Grove Speedweek opener having taken the last two Williams Grove races in a row.

 

 

Does The Williams Grove Speedweek Winner Predict A Series Title?

6/19/22

Mechanicsburg – As Williams Grove goes, so goes the speedweek championship.

Well, not quite.

But at least 44 % of the time since speedweek began in 1991, a Williams Grove speedweek winner has gone on to claim the overall speedweek series title.

Case in point, the 2020 speedweek series.

Kyle Larson won the big Mitch Smith Memorial at the Grove that year and then claimed the series title.

And the same back in the series’ inaugural season in 1991.

Steve Smith Sr. won one of two series races at the track in ‘91 and claimed the series crown.

All together, Williams Grove has completed events in 27 of the 31 series run to date.

And 44.44 % of the time, the track has had a hand in and perhaps predicted who the speedweek titlist would be.

In 1994, Smith Sr. and Fred Rahmer won and Rahmer scored the title.

In 1996, Keith Kauffman won the Mitch Smith and claimed the title for the Apple Motorsports stables.

And then in 1997, Lance Dewease did it for Walter Dyer.

Four years later, Dewease did it again, this time for Joe Harz.

In 2002, Greg Hodnett won the Mitch Smith and took the series title.

Rahmer was back for Smith Grove wins and series titles in 2004 and 2005 for Harz.

After 2005, it was 2013 until a Williams Grove winner again copped the title, this time in the form of Hodnett who took the series opener.

Stevie Smith won the opener in 2005 and then the crown.

And Danny Dietrich won the Smith Memorial in 2016 before taking his first series crown.

So will either of the 2022 Williams Grove winners go on to claim the 2022 Pennsylvania Speedweek championship?

Races at the oval on June 24 and July 1 will tell the tale.

Action begins both nights at 7:30 pm.

The 32nd annual speedweek opener paying $7,001 to win is coming up this Friday followed by the 34th annual Mitch Smith Memorial paying $15,000 to win on July 1.

Abbottstown, PA (June 18, 2022) – After engine troubles last week forced him to sit out most of the night, Chase Dietz rebounded with a win on Saturday at the Freedom Off-Road Speedweek Tune-up, “You have more bad nights than good nights, but these last couple of races, we’ll enjoy these and hopefully pull off a few more.”

Dietz lined up 10th for the 30-lap feature behind the redraw cars in the Speedweek format, “I got a good start and put myself in a decent position.” Chase was up to third early in the race and got by Chad Trout for second twice, both times with the caution coming out before the lap was complete, negating the pass. Dietz officially made the pass for second on lap 9. He then went to work reeling in Troy Wagaman for the lead. Dietz took the top spot on lap 24. It was Dietz’s second win of the weekend after winning at Williams Grove on Friday night. Dietz also won at the Grove last Friday, “It’s pretty damn cool to be able to pull off three here in the last two weeks heading into Speedweek.”

With PA Speedweek right around the corner, 31 410 sprint cars competed at Lincoln Saturday night in the Freedom Off-Road Speedweek Tune-up. Freddie Rahmer set quick time with a lap of 13.531 seconds and after qualifying for the feature through his heat race, Rahmer drew the #1, lining him up on the pole for the 30-lap feature.

Troy Wagaman started on the outside of row 1 and Chad Trout and Matt Campbell made up row 2.

Tyler Ross, Devon Borden and Chase Dietz were in a fierce battle for fifth with Dietz taking the spot on lap 3. Dietz made quick work of Glenndon Forsythe and Matt Campbell and was up to third on lap 4.

Borden, Trout and Krimes battled for third with Borden taking the spot on lap 11. Krimes moved into fourth and Trout was fifth.

Wagaman entered lapped traffic at the half way point of the race. Wagaman and Dietz both opted for the high line as they worked through lapped traffic. Dietz reeled in Wagaman and had a solid run coming off of turn 2 and was on Wagaman’s bumper at the line on lap 23.

The caution came out on lap 23 when Zane Rudisill was sitting backwards in turn 4.

Wagaman led Dietz, Borden, Krimes and Trout for the late race restart. Dietz stuck with Wagaman on the restart. Dietz had a solid run coming out of turn 2 and took the lead on lap 24.

Limited Late Model Feature Goes to Shaun Miller

Pole-sitter, Jason Smith took the lead when the green flag dropped with Shaun Miller in second and Travis Mease running third. Drew Weisser was working on Mease for third and Miller was running with Smith as they battled for the lead when the caution came out on lap 1 for Brandon Krone and Harry Shipe who were spun out in turn 2.

Smith led Miller, Mease, Weisser and Troy Miller to the cone for the restart. The yellow flag came out on the restart when Dale Smith hit the cone, leaving it on the front stretch. Miller was all over Smith on the restart and the two raced wheel to wheel down the back stretch with Miller taking the lead on lap 2.

Logan Seavey Scores Two Big Wins in USAC Eastern Storm Action. Anthony Macri Continues Winning Ways in Winged Sprint Car Competition

By Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, PA- (June 19, 2022)- Logan Seavey made history at the Port Royal Speedway as he swept the evening by picking up the win in both the USAC Racing AMSOIL INC. Sprint Car National Championship and USAC Silver Crown portions of the 2022 Eastern Storm event Saturday night.

The victories came in Seavey's first career visit to the Juniata County oval and was worth a combined $14,000 for the Sutter, California native.

A pair of wingless rookies in Briggs Danner and Emerson Axsom lined up on the front row for the USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Series A-main event and it was Danner getting the early jump on the field to lead the opening lap.

Sixth-place starter and the night's quick time award winner, CJ Leary, jumped to the runner-up spot on the second lap and he would take the lead from Danner after three laps completed when Danner came to a slow on the backstretch while leading.

Danner rejoined the field and it was Leary leading the field back to the green-flag while Brady Bacon and Axsom battled it out for the runner-up spot behind him. Axsom wrangled the second position away from Bacon on lap five, while Seavey was making his presence known as he moved into the fourth position on lap six.

Axsom powered by Leary for the top spot on lap six as well, but a right rear flat tire for Justin Grant halted the action with 24 to go before Leary could try and get the spot back. Grant would rejoin the field as well.

Bacon got by Leary for the runner-up spot on the restart, while Seavey continued his march forward as he took third on the following lap. Bacon was all over Axsom for the lead at the 10-lap mark, but two laps later he gave up the runner-up spot to Seavey.
Jake Swanson threw his hat into the mix as he moved to fourth on lap 14, while a hard charging Grant cracked the top ten again after tagging the rear of the field at the halfway mark.

One lap later, Seavey made a move on Axsom to take the top spot away and one lap later Bacon moved by Axsom for the runner-up spot as well. 16th-place starter Alex Bright was on the move as he cracked the podium with 12 laps remaining and one lap later he dispatched of Bacon for second.

While Seavey was running away from Bright up front, all eyes were on Grant as he cracked the top five with nine laps remaining. Ahead of him saw Bacon and Axsom waging a war for the final podium position, with Bacon taking the spot for good with four laps to go.
This allowed Grant to capitalize as he got around Axsom for the fourth position. However, nobody had anything for Leary as he cruised around the top of the Speedway for the $6000 win at the checkered flag over Bright.

Grant got by Bacon for the third position coming to the checkered flag while Axsom rounded out the top five.

Matt Westfall, Robert Ballou, Chase Stockon, Steven Drevicki and Danner completed the rest of the top ten.

USAC Wingless Results- 1. Logan Seavey (5), 2. Alex Bright (16), 3. Justin Grant (10), 4. Brady Bacon (3), 5. Emerson Axsom (2), 6. Matt Westfall (12), 7. Robert Ballou (9), 8. Chase Stockon (7), 9. Steven Drevicki (18), 10. Briggs Danner (1), 11. Shane Cottle (8), 12. C.J. Leary (6), 13. Brian Ruhlman (20), 14. Brandon Mattox (13), 15. Joey Amantea (15), 16. Dallas Hewitt (14), 17. Jake Swanson (4), 18. Austin Graby (21), 19. Jadon Rogers (19), 20. Mark Smith (11), 21. Charles Davis Jr. (17).

Set for 50 laps in distance, Leary and Bacon lined up on the front row for the first-ever USAC Silver Crown event held at the Speed Palace and it was Leary getting the early jump on the field.

The front five remained relatively unchanged throughout the opening 10 laps of the event, but seventh-place starter Shane Cottle changed that on lap 12 as he cracked the top five. Two laps later Bacon was in heavy pursuit of Leary and was all over the leaders tail-tank.

He used the outside of the Speedway to briefly overtake Leary for the top spot on the backstretch, but Leary was too strong in turn's three and four and inched ahead coming to the line to regain the spot. The battle allowed Matt Westfall to join in on the fun as he closed within a carlength of the leaders as well.

Westfall got by Bacon for the second spot on the following lap and nearly overtook Leary for the lead coming to the line as well. It only took two more turns for Westfall to grab the top spot as he powered under Leary exiting turn two and three laps later Bacon cleared Leary for second as the leader hit lapped traffic for the first time.

Four laps later Cottle moved into fourth and after another four laps he got by Leary to crack the podium for the first time. The first caution of the event flew two laps later for a car slowing on the frontstretch with tire issues, which wiped out a 3.8 second advantage for Westfall up front.

Westfall remained up front following the restart over Bacon, while Seavey first made his presence known on the podium with 20 laps to go. Bacon, Seavey and Jake Swanson all put on a three-car battle for the runner up spot over the next three laps, with Seavey getting by Bacon for second with 17 laps to go.

With 10 laps to go, Seavey was all over Westfall for the top spot. Banging the outside guardrails at both ends of the Speedway, Seavey got by Westfall for the lead exiting turn two with nine laps to go.
Following a caution with seven laps remaining, Seavey had all he could handle with Westfall behind him. He barely held him off for the top spot coming to the line with six to go, but Westfall re-grabbed the lead on the following circuit.
Seavy got into the wall trying to regain the spot on the high side and had to regroup. It appeared he was setting Westfall up for a pass with two laps remaining, but his wheel cover flew off in turn one to bring out the final caution and set up a two-lap dash.

Westfall ran through the middle after the restart, with Seavy banging the board up top. Westfall held a small lead coming to the white flag, but Seavy kept banging the boards and exiting turn two he pulled ahead to grab the lead. He stayed committed to the top and held on to take the checkered flag and the $8000 prize.

USAC Silver Crown Results- 1. Logan Seavey (6), 2. Matt Westfall (4), 3. Brady Bacon (2), 4. Dallas Hewitt (11), 5. C.J. Leary (1), 6. Shane Cottle (7), 7. Shane Cockrum (10), 8. Kody Swanson (5), 9. Jason McDougal (12), 10. Carmen Perigo (19), 11. Brian Tyler (16), 12. Chase Stockon (17), 13. Brian Ruhlman (15), 14. Jimmy Light (18), 15. Austin Nemire (21), 16. Mark Smith (9), 17. Jake Swanson (3), 18. Travis Welpott (23), 19. Mark Bitner (22), 20. Mike Haggenbottom (20), 21. Tom Paterson (24), 22. Justin Grant (8), 23. Gregg Cory (14), 24. Kyle Robbins (13).

Anthony Macri continued his winning ways at the Port Royal Speedway as he held off Logan Wagner and Jeff Halligan for his sixth victory of the season at the Speed Palace.

Tyler Reeser and Tyler Bear led the field to the green flag and it was Bear leading the initial circuit before a caution flew for Blane Heimbach spinning in turn two.

Sixth-place starter Halligan moved into third on the restart, while seventh-place starter Wagner moved into fourth. Fifth-place starter Mike Wagner moved into the runner up spot in the meantime, but a caution flew for Zach Newlin with 18 to go.

Mike Wagner capitalized on the restart and he slipped under Bear for the top spot with 17 laps remaining. Another caution flew for Dylan Cisney, who got upside down briefly on the frontstretch after contact with Justin Whittall.

Halligan moved into the second spot by Bear on the restart, while Macri went from fifth to third as well. With nine laps remaining the top four were all under a blanket and Macri got by Halligan for second on the following lap.

Macri slid under Wagner for the top spot and Wagner tried to come back on the outside coming to the flagstand with six laps to go. However, Wagner ran out of room on the outside and made contact with Macri, which sent him spinning to the inside guardrail.

When the field went back to green flag action, Logan Wagner got by Halligan for the runner-up spot and attempted to slide Macri for the lead but couldn't complete the pass. Macri went back to the high side of the track over the final five laps and went on to win easily for the $5000 prize over Wagner, Halligan, Ryan Taylor and Mike Walter II.

Whittall, Bear, Reeser, Gerard McIntyre Jr and Dan Shetler round out the top ten. Taylor earned the $500 Valley Supply Hard Charger after advancing from the 16th starting spot while Devin Adams earned the $1000 J&S Classics Warrior Award via random draw of 24.

Dietz Goes Back To Back In Williams Grove Sprints, Grant Gets USAC Main

JUNE 17, 2022

MECHANICSBURG, PA – Chase Dietz picked up his second straight sprint

car feature win Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway.

In the 30- lap Eastern Storm feature for the USAC Sprint Cars, it was

Justin Grant picking up the victory.

Dietz grabbed the lead from Billy Dietrich in the closing laps of the

Regular 410 sprint 25-lap main event and went on to the $5,500 win. It was his second

career win and second straight in John Trone’s No. 39.

“That was a fun race,” Dietz said. “The track got curbed-up in both

corners. I knew at some point, the bottom was going to rubber-up. It

was a matter of when and where it had to be. I was really fighting the

car on the curb trying to make ground where I could. I didn’t feel the

greatest on the bottom. I had to make the right moves in traffic. We

were running the curb and Billy hadn’t been up there. I made the right

choice and did it again. To just get the first one, let alone two in a

row, this is really cool.”

Lucas Wolfe grabbed the early race lead over Jeff Halligan and Bill

Dietrich. Wolfe raced the bottom as Halligan tried the middle groove.

Halligan got beside Wolfe as they raced down the frontstretch and had

the preferred line entering turn one. He took the lead from Wolfe and

then pulled away. Dietrich took second from Wolfe.

Halligan began lapping slower cars with a 2-second lead over Dietrich.

Sixth starting Dietz challenged Wolfe for third and eventually made

the pass.

Dietrich began closing on the leader while running the inside line. Dietrich

passed Halligan coming off turn four with 10 laps to go.

Dietz raced by Halligan and into second with eight laps to go only to see Halligan

take the spot back off of the second corner. The top three were very

close with seven to go.

Dietz squeezed back by Halligan in lapped traffic in turn three and then

cleared two slower cars and went after the leader. Dietrich was held

up by slower traffic on the bottom in turns one and two and Dietz blasted

the top driving by the slower cars and Dietrich for the lead with four laps

to go.

Dietz, of York, stayed mistake free over the final laps winning his

second straight Grove feature by 1.5-seconds over Dietrich. Halligan,

Wolfe and Tim Glatfelter completed the top five.

Chad Trout, Justin Whittall, TJ Stutts, Anthony Macri and Freddie Rahmer rounded out the

top 10.

Halligan, Wolfe and Dietrich won the heat races.

In the 30-lap Eastern Storm feature for the USAC National Sprint Cars,

Justin Grant of Ione, California, grabbed the lead from Matt Westfall

as they raced off turn four on the opening lap.

Logan Seavey passed Westfall for second as Grant’s lead was 2-seconds

with five laps completed.

Robert Ballou raced into third and Brady Bacon fourth as Grant

controlled the race increasing his lead.

Grant’s lead was 3.7-seconds with 10 laps completed. Seavey and Ballou

followed as Grant started lapping slower cars.

His huge lead was erased when the yellow flag flew with 16 laps completed.

Although he got a bit high in the first turn on the restart, Grant

stayed in front as they raced down the backstretch. A restart then

regrouped the field again.

Seavey took a shot at Grant on the ensuing restart as Pennsylvania’s

Alex Bright passed a few cars, moving into third after

starting 13th.

Grant’s dominance continued as he pulled away to a comfortable lead.

The yellow then again flew with six laps to go.

They raced three-wide for the lead in turns one and two following the

restart as Bright took second from Seavey before going after Grant.

Grant pulled away as Seavey tried to take second back off the top

groove while Bright ran the bottom.

Grant jumped the fourth turn cushion on the final laps making it a

close finish with Bright holding off Seavey for second. Grant’s 30th

career USAC sprint car win was worth $6,000. It was his first win

since February in Florida.

“The curb was getting really tough to run,” Grant said. “I bent the

wheel and it was shaking the rest of the way, but it was an absolute

blast and I had a lot of fun driving it. This is all I ever wanted to be

since I was three-years-old is be a sprint car driver. I’m living my

dream.”

“Everybody made it easy when they went to the top,” Bright said. “We

were working the bottom and I had to be real aggressive and sometimes

make the car a little wide. The car was on rails tonight. I wish we

had more laps because the top was getting treacherous and Grant was

making mistakes.”

Brady Bacon and Westfall completed the top five. Thomas Meseraull, Timmy

Buckwalter, Briggs Danner, Eastern Storm point leader CJ Leary, and

Steven Drevicki rounded out the top 10.

Jake Swanson had the fastest lap in qualifying time trials with a lap

of 20.065. Bacon, Steve Drevicki and Grant won the heats.

After getting to second on lap 13 Rahmer had to reel in race-leader, Austin Bishop, “We raced pretty hard there. Right before the yellow there, I was with him, it took a little while to get by him. He was running a good pace.” Rahmer would take the lead on lap 23 and lead the final 10 laps, “I want to thank everyone that put on the firefighters night. Its always a good event and I look forward to it.”

Two number 11 cars, Austin Bishop and TJ Stutts shared the front row for the drop of the green flag. Stutts led lap 1 with Bishop, Dylan Norris, Jim Siegel and Freddie Rahmer running in the top five.

Norris was working the bottom trying to reel in Bishop for second. Rahmer got by Siegel for fourth and closed in on Norris.

Rahmer, Bishop, Stutts, Wagaman and Norris lined up to restart with 10 laps to go. Rahmer held the lead and Borden got by Norris for fifth. The yellow flag came out again on lap 25 and quickly turned to red when a car ended up on its side.

The top five for the restart were Rahmer, Bishop, Stutts, Wagaman and Borden. Rahmer had a solid restart, but the yellow came out on lap 26 for Billy Dietrich who was stopped in turn 2.

Wagaman was working on Stutts for third as Rahmer pulled away from the field. Wagaman and Stutts were nearly side by side at the line with two to go. Wagaman took third as the white flag waved.

Jeff Rohrbaugh got under Strickler to be scored third at the line on lap 1.

Foster looked to the outside of Tuckey in turn 1 and took the lead on lap 3. Just as Foster took the lead, the caution came out for Rohrbaugh who spun in turn 1 while running third.

Foster led Tuckey, Strickler, Kyle Keen and Travis Scott on the restart. Scott was on Keen’s bumper for fourth and the two raced wheel to wheel down the back stretch. Scott took the spot on lap 5.

Tuckey was sticking with Foster and took the lead back at the line on lap 8 before the yellow flag flew for Ashley Cappetta who spun out in turn 4.

The top five for the restart were Tuckey, Foster, Strickler, Scott and Keen.

Tuckey pulled away as Strickler and Scott made contact on the front stretch bringing out the caution again on lap 9 when Scott was sitting sideways on the front stretch.

Tuckey led Foster, Strickler, Steve Owings and Keen for the restart. Owings got by Strickler for third. Kody Hartlaub was charging his way to the front from his 12th starting spot and was up to fifth on lap 10. Owings got up second and Hartlaub to fourth.

Friday Williams Grove USAC Sprint Show Has Plenty Of History

Summer of ’71 and Mitch Smith synonymous in USAC lore

6/12//22

Mechanicsburg – This Friday’s visit by the AMSOIL National USAC 410 Sprint Car Series to Williams Grove Speedway will be the first for the circuit since 2018 and for some, the notion of the full-blown USAC sprints coming back to the Grove still harkens them back to some wild 1971 USAC shows at the oval.

It was the season of Mitch Smith. What the local sprint car stud did back then to the national gurus of USAC when they came to the area was unheard of, anywhere.

Driving the Gary Wasson-owned No. 5, the Linglestown driver applied for and was granted a temporary permit to compete in the Grove USAC shows that June and September.

For reference, those permits were handed out by USAC with an eyedropper.

To fully appreciate what happened at Williams Grove during those USAC shows one must realize that USAC ruled the Indy 500 back then and their drivers were widespread in all Indy-car races.

And then along came 40-year old Smith to destroy the USAC destinies during that famed season.

Wicked mechanic Dick Hench of Newport was turning the wrenches on the Gary’s No. 5.

Smith humiliated the USAC stars on June 19 at Williams Grove.

But USAC car owners protested, putting up the cash to tear down Smith’s engine.

And then came the word, “It’s legal…three inches to spare.”

The next night, Smith and company would do it all again, up the road this time, at Selinsgrove Speedway.

And that would lead to threats of the USAC drivers “boycotting” the next Williams Grove race, not slated until September.

But again, Smith licked ‘em all! And he did it after going to the rear mid-race.

And yes, it’s true.

There had been USAC sprint shows at the Grove before 1971 and there have been many run since that time.

But nothing will ever measure up to that summer of ’71, when Mitch Smith and the No. 5 had them on the run.

When a local dominated all mid-state shows staged by the invaders.

Gates for this Friday’s USAC 410 Sprint Eastern Storm event open at 5:30 pm with time trials slated for 7:30.

The regular Williams Grove 410 sprints will join the USAC cars on the program.

Jason Shultz earned the pole position for the Joe Whitcomb Memorial and beat out Parker Evans for the early lead at the drop of the green flag. Shultz quickly pulled away from the field as Evans and fourth-place starter Mike Thompson dueled for the second spot.

On the second circuit, sixth-place starter Derek Locke raced into the third spot with seventh-place starter Jake Karklin blasting into fourth by lap five.

While Shultz continued to stretch his lead, an exciting three-car battle unfolded for the runner up position between Evans, Locke, and Karklin. On the ninth circuit, Karklin advanced to second and attempted to reel in Shultz.

At the halfway point, ninth-place starter Mark Smith showed some speed and moved into the top five. With five laps remaining, Shultz developed over half a track lead as Locke powered into second. At the finish, Shultz posted a convincing 13.93-second margin of victory over Locke, Smith, Karklin, and eighth-place finisher Davie Franek.

Front row starters Coleby Frye and Hayes Mattern battled for the lead at the start of the late model main event. Frye pulled into the lead as Mattern stayed within striking distance in the opening laps.

On the fifth lap, third-place starter Dylan Yoder reclaimed the spot from original fourth-place starter Andrew Yoder with fifth-place starter Bryan Bernheisel and seventh-place starter Jeff Rine.

At the halfway point, a torrid race unfolded for the runner up position between Mattern and D. Yoder as Frye began to encounter slower traffic. By lap 18, Mattern had closed within a one-second margin of Frye in the race for the lead and win.

At the checkered flag, Frye was victorious by just 1.6 seconds over Mattern, D. Yoder, Rine, and Brett Schadel.

Polesitter Levi Vial drove into the lead at the start of the roadrunner feature. Vial was chased by second-place starter Keith Bissinger for the first half of the race when sixth-place starter Jake Jones advanced to second and set his sights on the leader.

A lap eight caution flag regrouped the field and set up a thrilling chase to the checkered flag with Vial and Jones see-sawing for the lead in the final two laps. Racing out of turn four, Jones drove underneath Vial for the victory. Vial settled for second followed by Bissinger, points leader Nate Romig, and Jimmy Kessler.

Rick Lafferty Turns Back the Clock for Port Royal Speedway Triumph; Garrett Bard Sweeps 305 Twin 20's while Brenneman and Stake Score Limited Late Model Wins

By Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, PA- (June 12, 2022)- Rick Lafferty picked up his 12th career Weikert's Livestock 410 Sprint Car victory at Port Royal Speedway over Blane Heimbach and Mike Wagner Saturday night.

Kody Lehman and Lafferty led the field of 21 410 Sprint Cars to the green flag and it was Lafferty getting the early jump on the field to claim the top spot on the opening circuit. One lap later Heimbach, who started fifth on the grid, moved into the runner-up position and and seventh-place starter Mike Wagner, was up to fifth.

Wagner continued his march forward as he took fourth one lap later , but Mike Walter II regained the position on lap five as the two duked it our amongst reach other. Meanwhile, Heimbach was able to get by Lafferty for the top spot with 20 laps to go, but any opportunity to stretch his lead came to a halt one lap later when Tyler Reeser came to a slow on the frontstretch to regroup the field.

Wagner got back by Walter II for the fourth spot on the restart, while 11th-place starter Ryan Smith moved into sixth on lap eight. Also, Logan Wagner was making his move through as the field as the current track points leader had advanced from his 15th starting spot to ninth with 16 laps to go.

Lehman found something on the extreme high side of the Speedway and by lap 11 he was able to clear Lafferty for the runner-up spot and was closing quickly on Heimbach. Three laps later he got by him for the top spot exiting turn two, but Heimbach was able to get back by in turn's three and four to hold onto the top spot.

Lehman tried the same move that worked for him again in turn's one and two, but this time he got into the outside guardrail exiting turn two and had to get off the gas to regroup. This allowed Lafferty to slip back by and regain the second position.

Mike Wagner cracked the podium two laps later, while Lafferty was able to drive through the slick in turn's three and four to take the top spot from Heimbach with eight to go.

Logan Wagner cracked the top five with five laps remaining and two laps later he moved into the fourth position as well. He was all over his father's tail tank over the final three circuits for a podium position, but without a caution he wasn't going to have anything for the top cars.

Heimbach was reeling in Lafferty slowly over the final two laps as the veteran driver up front dealt with lapped traffic, but Lafferty was not to be denied as he eased home for the victory and the checkered flag.

Logan Wagner and Ryan Smith made up the rest of the top five followed by Lehman, Walter II, Justin Whittall, Jeff Halligan and Lucas Wolfe. Wagner earned the night's $500 Valley Supply Hard Charger Award while Derek Hauck scored the $1000 J&S Classics Warrior Award via random draw after finishing 16th.

For the second consecutive weekend a division taking part in twin 20 feature events saw a driver sweep the night. Garrett Bard earned the first PennsValley MeatMarket PA Sprint Series 305 Sprint Car feature by capitalizing on a front row starting spot in the first A-main. Meanwhile, he had to start eighth in the second A-main after drawing the eight invert pill.

It only took two turns for Bard to get by pole sitter Fred Arnold in the first A-main and after that nobody had anything for the 305 Sprint Car standout. With 10 laps to go, Doug Dodson moved into the runner-up spot after starting sixth and held on to finish there as well.

Austin Reed, Arnold, Roger Irvine, Scott Frack, Ken Duke, Kenny Heffner, Mike Melair and Seth Schoke completed the rest of the top ten.

Heffner and Duke lined up on the front row for the second twin 20 A-main event and it was Heffner getting to the lead on lap one. By the completion of the lap one though, Bard was already up from eighth to third inside the podium.

Lapped traffic played a part at the halfway point and three laps later Heffner, Duke and Bard were all three-wide down the backstretch battling for the top spot. Bard came out of the battle in second behind Heffner, but it only took one more circuit for Bard to get by Heffner and gain the top spot yet again.

A caution with two laps to go gave Heffner a shot to steal the win, but his slide job attempts were not good enough to best Bard as he cruised home to the victory over Heffner, Duke, Arnold and Roger Irvine. Larry McVay, Tyler Snook, Logan Spahr, Mike Melair and Reed completed the top ten.

Trent Brenneman picked up the Selinsgrove Ford Limited Late Model feature win over Ryan Zook and Dillan Stake in the first of two scheduled feature events for the divisions after starting third on the grid. Meanwhile Stake earned his fourth win of the season in the division during the second feature event, which was a make-up feature from earlier in April.

Fourth-place starter Zook quickly rocketed to the front of the field in the first feature event to lead the opening laps and with 15 laps to go Brenneman had moved into the second spot and was lurking.

As Zook battled heavy lapped traffic, Brenneman was closing fast and with seven laps remaining the two were nose-to-tail coming to the flagstand. Four laps later Brenneman made his move count and he got by Zook for the point.

He was able to cruise home to the victory over Zook, Stake, Shawn Shoemaker and Kevin Probst. Devin Hart, Daulton Bigler, Todd Snook, Taylor Farling and Derick Garman rounded out the top ten.

Jared Fulkroad led the first lap of the make-up feature before giving way to Snook on lap two. Snook lead the next seven laps before Stake was able to get by coming to the line for the top spot. From there it was all Stake as he cruised home for the victory.

Snook, Fulkroad, Shoemaker, Probst, Farling, Brenneman, Hart, Bigler and Chad Smith completed the top ten.

Dietz Wins First In 410s At Williams Grove, Herr Stops Lockes 358 Win Streak At 10

6/10/22

Mechanicsburg – Chase Dietz won the first 410 sprint car main of his career at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, outracing Freddie Rahmer for the win.

Dietz already owned six career oval wins in the 358 sprint division during his career.

In the 358 sprint Summer Series race, veteran Frankie Herr snapped the ten race win streak that had been ongoing at the hands of Derek Locke.

The start of the 25-lap 410 sprint main was quickly slowed when second starter Chad Trout looped his mount in the second turn.

Freddie Rahmer also spun his car but kept going and restarted in his original spot.

When action got going, polesitter Dietz sped into control over TJ Stutts and Rahmer.

Another yellow flag bunched the field on the fourth lap, wiping out a 2.3 second lead already built up by Dietz aboard the Trone No. 39.

Just prior to the caution, Rahmer had swooped under Stutts for the second spot.

Laps five through 20 went non-stop with Dietz entering the backmarkers on lap 10.

At times traffic held Dietz up, allowing Rahmer to close but he was always able to break free just in time to shake off Rahmer.

And then with five laps to go, the yellow flag again appeared, this time for debris on the track.

Rahmer raced to Dietz’s outside in the first turn when racing restarted but the leader held control however moments later in the third turn, when Dietz entered on the cushion Rahmer bolted underneath to take the lead.

But as Rahmer slid up, Dietz turned his car down off of the fourth turn cushion to race Rahmer back to the line and regain control just before another yellow slowed the pace.

Rahmer stayed glued to Dietz’s bumper when action resumed but it was again slowed a lap later.

And on this restart, Dietz got a better start in order to get away from his challenger and pull out to a .641 second advantage at the finish, performing flawlessly on the bottom to hold onto the victory.

Rahmer was second followed by Stutts, Devon Borden and Dylan Norris.

Sixth through 10th went to Rick Lafferty, Lucas Wolfe, Dylan Cisney, Billy Dietrich and Kyle Moody.

Heats went to Rahmer, Sutts and Norris.

Cisney set fast time in timed warm-ups with a lap of 16.980 seconds.

Scott Fisher led the first two laps of the 25-lap 358 sprint main before fourth starter Frankie Herr drove to his outside in the first corner to get control.

Herr had built up a 4.181 second lead by the time the first caution flag of the race unfurled with eight laps completed.

The restart saw Steve Owings battling with Fisher for second before securing the spot on lap 10.

Owings gave chase of the leader and when Herr began lapping cars with six laps to go, he was in the hunt to steal the lead.

Owings closed dramatically in traffic but found his challenging pace slowed and Herr’s way cleared when a final yellow flag unfurled with three laps to go.

Herr to the win by 1.5 seconds over Owings.

It was his fourth career 358 win at the track but his first in decades.

The run to the victory put an end to Derek Locke’s domination of the division that dates back to September of 2020.

Locke had won 10 races in a row, sweeping the entire 2021 season before also claiming the first race of the 2022 season a few weeks ago.

Scott Fisher was third followed by Devin Adams and Chris Frank.

Locke was sixth followed by Cody Fletcher, Chad Criswell, Tyler Brehm and Kody Hartlaub.

Heats went to Frank, Owings and Nash Ely.

Doug Hammaker scored the consolation race.

Abbottstown, PA (June 4, 2022) – The atmosphere at Lincoln on Saturday night was electric for the start of the 40-lap Steve Smith Tribute Race. Smith is such an important part of the history of Lincoln Speedway that honoring him with a race was the right thing to do. Not only did the fans show up to support the Smith family and the hard work they put in to the event, but 47 Gene Latta Ford 410 sprint cars filled the pits.

Danny Dietrich set quick time in the second time trial group and made it into the redraw for a starting spot at the front of the field for the feature. Dietrich lined up sixth for the drop of the green flag but fell back to seventh at the start. Dietrich was back up to fifth by lap 4 and was third at the half-way point of the race. Once Danny got by Troy Wagaman for second it wasn’t long before he made his winning move on Anthony Macri in turn 4. Dietrich took the lead on lap 26 and worked his way through lapped traffic and went unchallenged for the $19,000 win. In victory lane for the fifth time this season at Lincoln, Dietrich was excited to be there during a marquee event, “This is just awesome. Steve Smith was a badass.” Although Dietrich never raced against Steve, his respect for the Hall of Fame driver was obvious as he talked about him in victory lane, “He was one of the leaders in innovation. Hats off to the family for putting on this race.”

Last week’s winner ,Dylan Norris, drew the pole in the redraw for Saturday night’s big event. Troy Wagaman shared the front row with Norris and Anthony Macri and Lance Dewease lined up in row 2.

Norris shot out to the lead with Wagaman sticking with him and the two battled for first. Norris held onto the lead leaving Wagaman to fend off Macri as he challenged for second. Macri took the spot on lap 2 making the pass coming off turn 4. Wagaman was not letting Macri pull away and was putting pressure on him to take the spot back when the caution came out on lap 3 for TJ Stutts who was sitting backwards in turn 4.

Norris led Macri, Wagaman, Lance Dewease and Alan Krimes to the cone for the single-file restart. Norris got a good jump on Macri and Dewease was closing in on Wagaman. Dietrich got by Krimes for fifth.

Wagaman continued to put pressure on Macri as Macri was trying to reel in Norris.

Macri drove under Norris and took the lead on lap 9. Wagaman followed, taking second and sending Norris back to third.

Dietrich was working on Dewease for fourth as Macri entered lapped traffic on lap 11. Dietrich got by Dewease on lap 12.

Brent Marks was making his way to the front and got by Dewease as well to take fifth.

Dietrich and Marks were racing hard for fourth as they worked their way through lapped traffic. Dietrich caught Norris and made the pass for third on the backstretch, Marks followed as they moved into third and fourth on lap 20.

Dietrich slid Wagaman to take second on lap 14. Marks was on Danny’s bumper as he made the pass sending Wagaman back to fourth. Wagaman got back by Marks to reclaim third.

Macri was stuck in lapped traffic allowing Dietrich to close in. Macri bounced off the outside wall in turn 4 and that was just enough for Danny to take the lead at the line on lap 16. Wagaman and Marks followed, sending Macri back to fourth.

Once he got the lead Dietrich pulled away from the field. Marks got by Wagaman for second on lap 33. Dietrich struggled to get by a lapped car, but no one could catch him.

Dietrich scored his fifth win of the season at Lincoln and pocketed $19,000 by getting to the checkered flag 1.866 seconds ahead of Marks, who was the hard charger driving from 8th to 2nd. Wagaman crossed the line third and Macri was fourth. Norris completed the top five.

The 410 sprint car heat races were won by Brent Marks, Freddie Rahmer, Dylan Norris and Lance Dewease.

Rookie Preston Lattomus Scores First Career USAC Win

Nash Ely and Kyle Spence started on the front row of the 25-lap feature on Saturday night.

Ely took the lead with Spence and Carmen Perigo making it nearly a three-wide battle for the top spot. Ely pulled away with Spence and Perigo continuing the battle for second. Spence went high in turns 3 and 4 allowing Perigo to get by and take second.

Ely and Perigo raced wheel to wheel out of turn 4 with Perigo taking the lead by inches at the line on lap 2.

Preston Lattomus was all over Spence for third as Perigo paced the field and Ely was running second. Spence got away and got by Ely for second on lap 6.

Briggs Danner caught Lattomus and was challenging him for fourth. Danner dove under Lattomus as they raced into turn 3 but Lattomus held the spot.

Spence reeled in Perigo and the two raced wheel to wheel for the lead. Spence took the lead at the line as the red flag came out on lap 13 for Kody Swanson.

Spence led Perigo, Lattomus, Ely and Danner to the cone on the front stretch for the restart.

Spence got a good jump and used the top to get around the 3/8-mile oval. Lattomus got under Perigo for second on lap 16. Lattomus made quick work of running down Spence to battle for the lead. Spence held onto the lead by inches at the line but got nearly sideways in turns 1 and 2 as Lattomus made the pass for the lead.

Lattomus took over the top spot on lap 18. Danner was still making his way to the front of the field and passed Perigo for third on lap 21. Lattomus continued to pace the field as Danner worked on Spence to take over second. Danner took over second as the white flag waved.

Rookie-driver, Preston Lattomus scored his first career USAC East Coast Sprint Car feature win by 2.859 seconds over Briggs Danner. Spence crossed the line third and Perigo was fourth. Ely completed the top five.

Kody Swanson, Kenny Miller and Alex Bright won the USAC heat races.

Jeff Champagne Sweeps the Night in ARDC Competition

The ARDC Midgets ran a 20-lap feature event on Saturday night with a unique format. They ran the first 10 laps and then completely inverted the field and ran the remaining 10 laps of the feature.

Jeff Champagne started on the pole of the first 10-lap feature in his Steve Smith Tribute #19 with Mike Bittinger to his outside.

Champagne got out to the lead with Michael Markey running second and Shawn Jackson in third, Bittinger fell back to fourth.

Champagne was running alone at the front of the field as Jackson threw everything he had at Markey for second before he pulled off with what appeared to be engine troubles. Jackson’s retirement moved Bittinger up to third.

The caution flag waved on lap 8 for Randy Mausteller who spun out in turns 3 and 4.

Champagne paced the field ahead of Markey, Eric Heydenreich, Zach Curtis and Randy Mausteller for the restart.

Champagne was leading at the halfway point when the competition caution came out to invert the field.

With five cars still running, the starting line-up for the second half of the feature was Mausteller, Curtis, Heydenreich, Markey and Champagne.

Champagne was back to the lead by the time the field came back around to the start-finish line. Champagne would lead all 10 laps to his first career ARDC feature victory.

Champagne would flip the car in turn 1 after the checkered flag as he attempted to celebrate his win. His enthusiasm for his first win made for an incredibly entertaining victory lane interview as his car hung off the wrecker behind him.

Next Saturday, June 11, Lincoln Speedway is back in action with the Fallen Firefighters Race paying $5,000 to win for the 410 Sprints. The 358 Sprints are also in action. Racing starts at 7:30PM with pit gates opening at 4:00PM and grandstand gates opening at 5:30PM.

Billy Pauch To Be Honoree At Williams Grove Speedweek Opener June 24

Zemco No. 1 To Appear, Car Owners To Gather In Honor Of Legend’s Career

Pauch To Host Book Signings As Part Of Special Event

6/5/22

Mechanicsburg – Williams Grove Speedway has announced special guest Billy Pauch is slated to be on hand for opening night of the 32nd annual Pennsylvania Speedweek Series,

Presented by Kiely Construction, the speedweek opener is coming up on Friday, June 24.

The legendary dirt track star Pauch recently put his career on hold after getting the season underway and picking up a modified win.

And while stopping short of announcing his full retirement; the now 65-year old pilot has just released his biography.

With over 740 total career wins to his credit since his first in 1975, Pauch most notably put up his biggest numbers in the modified ranks over the seasons.

But his numbers in a sprint car stand at 62 alone and it’s that portion of his career that Williams Grove will honor at the speedweek opener.

Pauch is perhaps best known for his near decade spent in the potent Zemco No. 1 sprint car during the 1990s.

And to help pay tribute to Pauch’s career, Zemco car owner John Zemaitis and his current driver Logan Wagner will be in attendance for the speedweek opener.

The car will be on display in the Williams Grove infield beginning at 5:30 before competing while Pauch and three of his former car owners will gather at the stage from 6 to 6:30 pm for interviews and autographs.

The acclaimed driver will then host a book signing of his biography, “THE LAST COWBOY: The Life and Times of Billy Pauch,”

Joining Pauch for the pre-race event will be Zemco owner Zemaitis along with No. 126 car owner Glen Hyneman and No. 55 car owner Gene Jenkins of Milton.

A plaque presentation honoring Pauch’s sprint car career will be presented following time trials and Pauch will again sign books in the infield immediately after the speedweek B Main.

Known to many as “Billy The Kid” during his career, Pauch put up 15 sprint car wins during his tenure at Williams Grove while overall laying claim to victories over the World of Outlaws, All Stars, USAC, CRA, SCRA and KARS.

In 1994 Pauch toured the New York State Fairgrounds mile at world record speed and became the world’s fastest sprint car driver, posting a speed of 144.590 mph.

Dillan Stake Sweeps Limited Late Model Twin 20's; Jeff Halligan and Colton Flinner Score Wins as Well on Bobby Rahal Toyota of Lewistown Night

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, PA- (June 5, 2022)- Dillan Stake continued what has been a successful 2022 Selinsgrove Ford Limited Late Model campaign at Port Royal Speedway for him by sweeping the night's Twin 20 feature events for his second and third feature victories of the season Saturday night.

"It's a dream to drive when these things are this good," said Stake. "It means a lot to pay once and get two feature race payouts. To win makes it even better."

Trent Brenneman and Ryan Zook lead the field of 22 drivers to the green flag and it was Zook getting the early jump off the high side of the Speedway to lead lap one in the opening Twin 20 feature event for the division.

Stake started fourth on the grid and by law two he had already moved into the runner-up spot and was stalking the leader. Seventh-place Andrew Yoder was also on the move early as he moved into fourth on lap later.

Five move laps clicked by before Stake made a bid for the top spot and he and Zook swapped the lead in turn's one and two before he was able to power through the middle of turn's three and four to take the top spot for good coming to the flagstand.

Yoder moved onto the podium with ten laps remaining and with eight laps to go Stake was buried in heavy lapped traffic. Yoder was able to get by Zook for the runner-up spot with five laps to go, but nobody had anything for Stake as he cruised home to score the first victory of the evening over Yoder, Snook, Brenneman and Shawn Shoemaker.

Justin Kann, Colin Knaub, Todd Snook, Troy Miller and Kenny Yoder completed the top ten. Taylor Farling finished 11th to pick up the Dedicated Nursing Associates, Inc. $100 Hard Charger Award after starting 19th on the grid.

"We were able to get it done and that makes you pretty happy," said Stake. "I saw Ryan kind of sneak by me there after I got him and I just knew I had to get going."

Stake drew the four pill to invert the top four drivers for the second Twin 20 feature event for the division and that put Brenneman and Zook back on the front row again. Zook once again was able to take the top spot on the opening lap.

Stake was on the move early again as he moved into the runner-up position on lap two, but a caution halted all momentum with 18 laps remaining when Chase Bowsman came to a stop on the frontstretch.

Zook took off on the restart and he valiantly tried to hold off a determined Stake, however with 13 laps remaining he slid under Zook for the lead in turn's one and two and never looked back.

Zook, Brenneman, Yoder, Shoemaker, Knaub, Kann, Farling, Todd Snow and Daulton Bigler completed the top ten. Bigler earned the $100 DNA Hard Charger Award for the event.

"It was the same song and dance and this thing is just so easy to drive and that makes things easy," said Stake. "When you're running as good as we are, you're just riding the wave until you can't anymore. I spent a lot of time this week to get prepared for this and we're just going to keep riding the wave."

Jeff Halligan capitalized on Justin Whittall's misfortune to pick up his second career Port Royal Speedway victory over Logan Wagner and Michael Walter II Saturday night.

"We kind of rebooted our program last season and the people I have one this team are unbelievable," said Halligan. "I knew we were pretty good and we just had to finish it off."

Curt Stroup and Whittall led the field of 17 Weikert's Livestock 410 Sprint Cars to the green flag and it was Whittall picking up where he left off last weekend to grab the lead on lap one.

Eighth-place starter Wagner cracked the top five on lap two, but Whittall was smooth sailing out front before a caution flew for a spinning Devin Brenneman in turn four to bring out the caution with 21 laps remaining.

Halligan, who lined up fourth to start the event, moved past Walter for the runner-up spot with 20 laps remaining, while Wagner got by Stroup for fourth as well. Seventh-place starter Lucas Wolfe was also on the move as he cracked the top five on the same lap.

At the halfway mark of the 25 lap event, it was all Whittall up front and the youngster appeared destined to capture his first career victory at the Port Royal Speedway. However, his chances went out the window with 10 laps remaining when he blew a right rear tire on the backstretch to bring out the caution and handed the lead to Halligan.

The lack of luck marked a second consecutive week that Whittall had given up the lead while leading as he found a fuel leak on his car under red during last week's make-up feature event.

Halligan controlled the pace on the restart, while 11th-place starter Dylan Cisney moved into fourth with nine laps remaining. Walter began chipping away at the significant lead Halligan was building up with four laps remaining and with two laps to go Cisney cracked the podium as he got by Wagner for third.

Walter continued reeling in the leader coming to the white flag, but caution on the final lap for a slowing Ryan Taylor bunched the field and gave everyone one last shot at the leader.

However, Halligan had nothing to worry about as Wagner slid both Cisney and Walter to move into the runner-up spot in turn's one and two to allow the young gun to pull away and take the checkered flag for the win.

Wagner, Walter, Cisney and Mike Wagner rounded out the top five while Whittall, Kody Lehman, Wolfe, Trenton Shaeffer and Taylor completed the top ten. Cisney earned the night's Valley Supply $500 Hard Charger Award while Shaeffer scored the $1000 J&S Classics Warrior Award via random draw.

"The last thing we wanted to see was that yellow there at the end, but I really wasn't too worries," said Halligan. "Everybody is always talking about Logan Wagner and Anthony Macri here, but we've been pretty darn good all season and it showed tonight."

410 Sprint Car Results- 1. Jeff Halligan, 2. Logan Wagner, 3. Mike Walter II, 4. Dylan Cisney, 5. Mike Wagner, 6. Justin Whittall, 7. Kody Lehman, 8. Lucas Wolfe, 9. Trenton Shaeffer, 10.

Colton Flinner picked up his fifth consecutive Krill Recycling, LLC Super Late Model feature win of the season following a mid-race pass of Gary Stuhler at Port Royal Speedway Saturday night.
"This is just a really good piece we have here," said Flinner. "This car is unbelievable and I don't even know what to say."

Chad Myers and Stuhler lead the field of 17 Super Late Models to the green flag and it was Stuhler grabbing the point on the opening circuit over Rick Eckert, who started fourth.

The field was slowed after Myers and Dylan Yoder made contact while battling for third as Myers spun out on the frontstretch to reset the field.

Flinner went fourth to second on the restart and began to stalk Stuhler in the turn for the top spot. it only took six more laps, but Flinner threw a slider at Stuhler in turn's three and 4 to take the lead for good.

From there he had no challenge as he drove away with ease to continue what has been a magical season for the driver of the No. 48 Super Late Model.

Stuhler, Eckert, Jeff Rine and Yoder completed the top five while Dan Stone, Andy Huas, Tim Sith Jr., Hayes Mattern and Danny SNyder completed the top ten. Smith Jr. earned the $200 Georges Used Cars Hard Charger Award after starting 16th on the grid.

Dietrich Snaps Williams Grove Losing Streak, Bright Gets USAC East Gallagher 5G To Win

6/3/22

Mechanicsburg – Danny Dietrich snapped a near two-year losing streak at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night by taking the June 3 sprint car feature.

His last win at the track was July 31 of 2020.

The inaugural Bill Gallagher 5G To Win main for USAC East 360 sprints was scored by Alex Bright for his third circuit win of the year.

Bright’s victory was an exciting one as the last eight laps of the feature saw the battle for the lead intensify.

Dietrich would end up wiring the field from the pole for the 25-lap 410 sprint car win however he had his challengers who both met with ill fate late in the going.

Dietrich came up on the rear of the field on the seventh tour and struggled at first to begin lapping cars before breaking free to stretch out a more than five-second lead by lap 10.

However by that time, fourth starter Anthony Macri was up to second and running him down and by lap 15 Dietrich’s lead was cut to 1.5 seconds.

Still working traffic with four laps go to, the leader’s advantage was down to less than a half second as Macri was honing in for a pass.

But then as he came to the stripe with three laps to go his car suddenly sputtered and slowed as third runner Brent Marks nearly ran over him as the pair raced down the frontstretch.

Marks then turned his car to speed into second and set his sights on leader Dietrich.

With a pair of lapped cars between himself and the leader, Marks drove every bit of his No. 19M into the first turn in an effort to put both cars behind him.

However his move failed and he instead nearly wiped out the lappers while also spinning in the middle of the corner only to continue on.

His spin let Macri back by for the second spot as Dietrich sped to the checkers in the Kauffman No. 48 to get the victory by 3.183 seconds.

It was the 26th win of his career at Williams Grove.

Marks ended up third followed by Freddie Rahmer and Kyle Moody.

Sixth through 10th went to Devon Borden, Lucas Wolfe, Aaron Bollinger, Tyler Ross and Justin Whittall.

Heats went to Dietrich, Moody and Bollinger.

Borden was the PA Dyno Hard Charger.

Mark Smith started on the pole of the 30-lap USAC East Gallagher Memorial and took command of the field with Kenny Miller and Mike Thompson giving chase.

Smith had a straightaway lead by lap eight when the first caution flag of the race appeared for a flat tire on Steve Wilbur’s racer.

Miller challenged for the lead on the restart before Smith broke free and again got away from the field only to be slowed once more one lap shy of the halfway point.

Miller, Joey Amantea, Steve Drevicki and Alex Bright followed for the restart.

Drevicki made a big move when action returned to drive the low lane into the second spot with Bright moving up to fourth.

And then the red flag appeared with 12 laps to go when both Mike Thompson and Amantea vaulted out of the speedway, exiting via turn four.

Both drivers climbed from their racers moments later.

The restart found Drevicki, Bright and point leader Briggs Danner giving chase for the win.

Drevicki pounced on Smith at the new green and took the lead on lap 20.

Smith reclaimed the lead briefly during the lap but Drevicki would persevere for control before Smith slowed to a stop with three laps to go.

This go around, Bright, Danner and six-time USAC Sivler Crown titlist Kody Swanson gave chase on the restart.

And Bright was up to the challenge as he moved to Drevicki’s inside as the pair raced down the backchute on lap 24 before diving into the top spot as the pair set their cars into the third turn.

Eyes then turned to Danner as he came forward to slide by Drevicki.

However he ran out of time to get around Bright, instead crossing the line in second.

Drevicki, Miller and Swanson completed the top five finishers.

Heats went to Drevicki, Kyle Spence and Danner.

Nash Ely won the B Main.

Anthony Macri Finishes Off Clean Sweep of Bob Weikert Memorial with $29,000 All Star Triumph

By Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, PA- (May 30, 2022)- Anthony Macri made it a clean sweep of the 2022 Bob Weikert Memorial presented by Packer's Concessions, LLC. and Folkens Brothers Trucking Saturday night as he held off Brent Marks, Jeff Halligan and the very best the Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions had to give.

The win was worth $29,000 and was Macri's seventh career with the traveling All Stars. It also continued what has been a dominating season at the Speed Palce for Macri with five victories at the track in 2022.

"Brent's not dumb and I knew he'd catch on to what we were doing on restarts and I just tried to keep him guessing," said Macri. "I can't thank Charlie Garrett enough as he builds one hell of a motor and this thing was just awesome."

Rico Abreu and All Star rookie of the year contender Chris Windom led the field of 25 cars to the green flag and it was Windom getting the early jump to lead his first A-main lap of his rookie All Star campaign.

Current point leader at the Speed Palace, Logan Wagner, was on the move early as he advanced form his 14th starting spiot to ninth by lap two and two laps later it was sixth-place starter Marks making his first stop in on the podium as he advanced to third.

Windom set sail in the opening laps, but Abreu was starting to track him down with five laps completed. However, one lap later his night ended prematurely when he made contact with the outside guardrail and suffered rear end damage and brought out the caution.

Marks inherited the runner-up spot as a result of Abreu's misfortune and he and Macri were all over Windom following the return to green-flag action. Macri was able to get by Marks for the 2nd position, but Windom stayed steady up front to hold on to the top spot still.

WIth nine laps completed, 19th-place starter Lance Dewease was making himself known to the field as he cracked the top ten. Six laps later Macri drove alongside Windom entering turn three and the Dillsburg, Pa. native drove through the middle outside of Windom through turn 4 to take the top spot with 15 laps to go.

Marks got around Windom for the runner-up spot at the halfway mark of the 30-lap event, while Macri was burried in heavy lapped traffic in front of the field. Current All Star point leader Tyler Courtney moved into a podium position four laps later, but Macri was able to put several lapped cars behind him to keep both Sunshine and Marks at bey.

A caution for a slowing Zeb Wise bunched thefield back together with 7 laps remaining and it was Windom trying to fight back on the restart as he got by Courtney to move back into a podium position. Marks was hot and heavy on the tail tank of Macri for the top spot as well, but another caution flew one lap later for Brian Brown, as the weekend invader pulled off the track with a flat right-rear tire.

Marks tried again on the restarst, but Macri was again able to hold off all attempts to hold onto the top spot. Jeff Halligan seemed to find something on the bottom of the track over the final five circuits as he moved up from his fifth starting position to a podium spot on the white flag lap. He challenged Marks for the runner-up spot, but was unable to grab it.

Meanwhile, Macri was in a league of his own as he came home to the checkered flag with ease for the victory and the coveted steer head trophies awaiting him in victory lane. Marks finished second and earned $10,500 courtesy of Jackson Motorplex, while Halligan earned $8300 for his podium finish courtesy of Huset's Speedway. Courtney and Justin Peck rounded out the top five.

Logan Wagner, Dewease, Windom, Danny Dietrich and Lucas Wolfe completed the top ten. Wolfe took a provisional to start the A-main all alone in the 13th row and earned the $500 Valley Supply Hard Charger Award for the second consecutive night after advancing 15 positions in the A-main. Bill Balog scored the $1000 J&S Classics Warrior Award via a random draw of finishing spot No. 17 while Gerard McIntyre Jr. earned a $100 bonus via RK Electrical as the first non All Star non-qualifier.

"The history behind the Weikert name and to win it back to back and sweep the whole weekend is pretty damn cool," said Macri. "I don't know if that has ever been done, but this is going to take a little while to sink in."

For Marks, he was happy with a runner-up, but was disappointed he didn't get a shot at Macri in lapped trafic.

"Anthony did a good job on the restarts and he could just stick the middle really well on the restarts," said Mark. "They're the car to beat here right now, but I wish we could have had a shot in lapped trafic as we could run him down, but we're just not as good in clean air as them."

Halligan was excited to be on the podium, but just ran out of time.

"I was beting down the fence like everyone else, but went to clean air after that restart," he said. "This is a great run for this team and I can't thank my guys enough for getting me here."

410 Sprint Car Feature Finish: 1. Anthony Macri; 2. Brent Marks; 3. Jeff Halligan; 4. Tyler Courtney; 5. Justin Peck; 6. Logan Wagner; 7. Lance Dewease; 8. Chris Windom; 9. Danny Dietrich; 10.

Steve Wilbur made sure there was a Weikert's Livestock sponsored sprint car in victory lane on the livestock companie's namesake's memorial event as he picked up the Path Valley Wingless Sportsman feature A-main event.

Wilbur started eighth on ther grid and got by front row starters Michael Smith and Brett Perigo mid-race to bring home the victory as part of the Bob Weikert Memorial.

"You just have to go as hard as you can on the track and this is pretty call to do this on Bob Weikert's night and for everything that family does for racing," said Wilbur. "To quote Bob Weikert, this ain't even with our good stuff as we got the good stuff chained up back at the shop at home.

"This staff does so much and invites us to be part of this event and this is just an honor for our series to even be here. I kid the Weikert fanily always that I want a bull head and this is the only track in Central Pa I;ve never won at and it's just really cool to finally get a win in front of these fans."

Sportsman Results- 1. Steve Wilbut; 2. Brett Perigo; 3. Michael Smith; 4. Trent Yoder; 5. Eric Jennings; 6. Tony Jackson; 7. Tom Savage; 8. Bob Gutshall; 9. Kevin Gutshall; 10. Jason Failor; 11. Jack Leddick; 12. Graig Perigo 13. Gene Eppley; 14. Dexter Ehrenzeller; 15. Adam Meier; 16. Sam Leonard; 17. Jonatyhan Clay; 18. Ricky Rutt; 19. Joe Gabner; 20. Rohan Beasley; 21. Luke Lenker

Logan Wagner added yet another win at the Speed Palace in 2022 as he picked up the make-up feature event victory for his fourth win of the 2022 racing season. Wagner bested Brent Marks and Dylan Cisney to score the $5000 victory.

Justin Whittall started the race on the pole position and looked to be in contention to score his first career Port Royal victory. However, following a red flag for Tyler Walton in turn one his crew noticed fuel leaking form his 410 powered sprint car on the frontstretch and he was forced to give up the lead to head to the pits to fix the issue.

Marks inherited the lead as a result of Whittall's misfortune, but it was all Wagner on the restart as he flew to the front of the pack and never looked back. Marks and Cisney put on a spirited battle for the top spot over the final laps of the event, but it was Marks sitting second yet again on the night over Cisney, Halligan and Gerard McIntyre.

"What a cool experience. We wanted to get the Weikert, but I can't complain with a $5000 victory tonight," said Wagner. "We just were too balled up on the right rear during the Weikert, but we prevailed and got ourselves a victory.

Wagner shaved his head in victory lane as a result of a promise he made earlier in the week that if he won, he;d shave his head to bring awareness to a young girl named Adley's fight with Cancer.

410 Make Up Results- 1. Logan Wagner; 2. Brent Marks; 3. Dylan Cisney; 4. Jeff Halligan; 5. Gerard McIntyre; 6. Steve Buckwalter; 7. Lucas Wolfe; 8. Mike Wagner' 9. Kody Lehman; 10.

Anthony Macri Outduels Lance Dewease and the All Star Circuit of Champions to Claim Night One of the Bob Weikert Memorial

By-Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, PA- (May 29, 2022)- Anthony Macri used a late race pass and held off Lance Dewease to score the night one victory during the All Star Circuit of Champions Bob Weikert Memorial presented by Packer's Concessions, LLC. and Folkens Brothers Trucking at Port Royal Speedway Saturday night.

The win was Macri's fourth of the season at the Juniata County oval and was worth a cool $10,000.

"We all had to sit down and scratch our heads and I think this shows we made the right calls," said Macri. "I have a lot of respect in the world for Lance and to be able to race with him and pass him for a win is pretty darn special."

Justin Whittall and Danny Dietrich led the field of 26 cars to the green flag and it was Dietrich getting the early jump on the field to lead the opn\ening lap. Fourth-place starter Steve Buckwalter got by Macri for the final podium spot on the opneing lap while 7th-place starter Dewease had already cracked the top five.

Buckwalter continued his march toward the front four laps later when he got by Whittall for the runner-up position and one lap later Macri followed suit as he regained third. Macri briefly overtyook Buckwalter for second coming to the line, but Buckwalter was able to power back by entering turn one to regain the position.

Dewease got by Whittall for fourth on the following lap and within three laps the top four were all within striking distance of each other and in lapped traffic.

After multiple laps of back and forth battling, Macri got by Buckwalter for the runner-up position for good on lap 12 and one lap later it was Dewease sliding into the third position.

Using his patented high line in the turns, Macri continue to bang the boards all around the racetrack trying to track down Dietrich and the contact nearly ended his night early on lap 16 when he hit hard in turn's three and four to hand over the second spot to Dewease.

However, Macri quickly regrouped and was all over Dewease for the runner-up spot when the caution flew for a slowing Ryan Taylor in turn four with 10 laps remaining.

10th-place starter Brent Marks was the man on the move when the field went back to green as he moved into the fourth position. Meanwhile, Dietrich was fighting hard to hold off a surging Dewease. Dewease slid Dietrich for the lead in turn's three and four and Dietrich slapped the outside gaurdrail at both ends of the speedway to fall to third behind Macri.

The final caution of the event fell a few laps later when Buckwalter came to a slow on the frontstretch while running in the sixth position. With four laps remaining all eyes were up front on Dewease, Macri and Dietrich.

Macri used a power move to the bottom of turn's three and four following the restart to briefly take the lead from Dewease coming to the line, but Dewease was able to cut back under for the lead with three laps to go.

Macri went right back to the top and the pair exited turn's three and four nearly side by side coming to the line with Dewease still ahead by mere feet. This time Macri used the momentum to his favor and as the two race side by side down the backstretch he cut to the bottom and was able to take the lead exiting turn four to take the white flag as the leader.

Dewease used a slider in turn's one and two on the final circuit to pull even with Macri down the backstretch and appeared he might steal one from the Concrete Kid. However, Macri was just too good off the top in turn's three and four and his momentum off the exit powered him ahead to take the checkered flag in front of a frontsretch of standing fans.

Dietrich, Marks and Justin Peck round out the top five. Lucas Wolfe charged forward from 18th to finish in sixth and earned the $500 Valley Supply Hard Charger while Dylan Cisney, Logan Wagner, Whittall and Zeb Wise rounded out the top 10. Ryan Taylor earned the $1000 J&S Classics Warrior Award with a random draw of 24 in victory lane.

"Lance is pretty smart and I didn't want to give him any clues where I was running definitively so I threw him a few sliders and tried to shake him up," said Macri. "That was one hell of a race and I hope everyone here liked that."

For Dewease, he thogught he had a car capable of winning, but made the wrong adjustments under yellow trying to hold off Macri.

"Anthony is good everywhere here and I just messed up the car under that caution," said Dewease. "I thought when I got back by him we might be ok, but it was a good race and I hope everyone enjoyed it. We'll be back tomorrow night."

For Dietrich, it was a disappointment not to grab the win after leading so many laps.

"I guess I should not have got off the bottom there after that first restart, but I thought maybe we could carry more speed up top," said Dietrich. "I plugged her in the fence trying so hard to get back in front of him and I think we're lucky to even be standing here on the podium."

SCELZI SMASHES TRACK RECORD IN FIRST SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY SPRINT CAR WIN;

YODER & BARD ALSO TAKE CHECKERS IN SPECIAL THURSDAY NIGHT THUNDER SHOW

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Gio Scelzi of Fresno, Calif., invaded and conquered in a huge way Thursday night by wiring the field for his first career 410 sprint car win at Selinsgrove Speedway and smashing the track’s long-time 25-lap track record.

Scelzi took the checkered flag by almost 12 seconds over Brian Brown of Grain Valley, Mo., along with the $5,000 winner’s share in the second 410 sprint car race of the season at the track on RiteWay Sealing & Paving Night.

At the wheel of the KCP Racing No. 18, Scelzi’s time of 7:12.53 eclipsed Todd Shaffer’s 1991 record of 8:10.81.

Jim Yoder of Middleburg inherited the lead from Dan Stone of Thompson on lap nine in the 25-lap super late model feature and went to score his 16th career win at the track in the division.

Garrett Bard of Wells Tannery made it two wins within five days at the track in the 20-lap 305 sprint car feature.

Selinsgrove Speedway’s next race is slated for 7 p.m. Saturday, June 4, featuring the United Racing Club 360 sprint cars in the Kramer Cup plus 305 sprint cars and roadrunners on Brian Wentzel Trucking LLC Night. Apache Tree will also be sponsoring the Kids Money Scramble. Track gates will open at 5 p.m.

In the sprint car feature, Gio Scelzi and Brian Brown shared the front row with Scelzi powering into the lead and never looking back. Scelzi led Brown, third-place starter Freddie Rahmer and eighth-place starter Anthony Macri in the early laps of the race.

On the eighth circuit, Macri’s car got sideways in turn four, allowing sixth-place starter Lucas Wolfe to drive into fourth. By the halfway point, Scelzi was already checked out from the rest of the field with a straightaway lead.

In the closing laps, Macri made up lost ground and challenged Brown for second only to blow a tire on the final lap. At the checkered flag Scelzi was victorious by 11.75 seconds over Brown and ninth-place starter Danny Dietrich who made a late-race charge. Rahmer and Wolfe rounded out the top five.

Second-place starter Dan Stone pulled into the early lead over polesitter Jim Yoder at the start of the super late model feature. Fourth-place starter Tim Wilson was racing a strong third when he tagged the wall on the backstretch and brought out the caution flag.

When the race resumed, Stoned kept his machine out in front with Yoder in close pursuit. On the ninth circuit, Stone’s car developed mechanical issues in turns one and two, handing the lead to Yoder.

At the halfway marker, Yoder set the pace in front of sixth-place starter Bryan Bernheisel, fifth-place starter Gene Knaub and third-place starter Mike Lupfer.

In the final five laps, Bernheisel had Yoder in his sights and a contentious battle unfolded for the top five spots. At the checkered flag, Yoder was victorious by a mere .05 of a second when Bernheisel made a last-ditch effort to snag the lead and win. Knaub, Jeff Rine and Dylan Yoder rounded out the top five.

Front row starter Austin Reed took the lead at the start of the 305 sprint car feature and was chased by polesitter Logan Spahr. On a lap five restart, Reed led Spahr, sixth-place starter Garrett Bard, fifth-place starter Ken Duke, and third-place starter Kruz Kepner.

At the halfway point, Reed had a comfortable lead over Bard, only to have the field regrouped on lap 12 for a red flag for a fire on Paul Moyer’s car. When the race resumed, Bard used the inside lane to pass Reed for the lead.

In the final laps, Reed was in striking distance but came up short by about one second as Bard took the checkered flag. Spahr, Duke, and Kepner rounded out the top five.

By Justin Snyder

PORT ROYAL, PA- It's finally here! One of the biggest weekend's of racing comes to the Port Royal Speedway this Memorial Day weekend as the 2022 Bob Weikert Memorial race presented by Packer's Concessions, LLC. and Folkens Brothers Trucking takes place on Staurday, May 28th and Sunday, May 29th.

Featuring the Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1, the annual red, white and blue spectacular will pay $10,000 to win and $700 to start for the first night, followed by a whopping $29,000 to win and $1000 to start on Saturday. Saturday's event features more than $37,000 in the full purse, while Sunday's event reaches more than $70,000 on the line.

Along with the All Star Circuit of Champions 410 Sprint Cars on both nights, night one of the Weikert Memorial will feature the PennsValley MeatMarket PA Sprint Series 305 Sprint Cars on the card, while the Path Valley Wingless Sportsman will tag along for the second consecutive year for the night two finale. As an added bonus for those in attendance, the Weikert's Livestock 410 Sprint Cars will take part in a make-up feature event form last week's event that was rained out on Sunday as well.

The annual event has been held since 2003 and is a Memorial Day weekend staple that honors the legendary car owner and National Sprint Car Hall of Fame and Museum, Bob Weikert. The event first became a two-day spectacle in 2016 and the coveted ‘Steer Head’ trophy is one of the most sought-after trophies for drivers all throughout the country.

Last year's event was plagued by rain for two nights and was moved to Monday as a result. It served as a return to glory for fan favorite Lance Dewease as he picked up his second career Weikert Memorial victory after holding off Anthony Macri for the $29,000 prize. Dewease first won the event 15 years prior in 2006. Fred Rahmer (2), Todd Shaffer, Greg Hodnett (6), Jeff Shepard, Stevie Smith, Doug Esh, Cody Darrah, Lucas Wolfe (2), Danny Dietrich, Logan Wagner and Kyle Larson (2) have all earned victories in the event.

Defending All Star Circuit of Champions point champion Tyler Courtney enters the weekend tilt as the All Star series points leader with a 44-point advantage over second-place Parker Price-Miller. Justin Peck (-46), Hunter Schuerenberg (-72) and Cap Henry (-108) complete the top-five.

Meanwhile in Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Car competition, it’s still Logan Wagner leading the way with a commanding 115-point advantage over second-place Mike Wagner. Lucas Wolfe (-115) sits third, followed by Jeff Halligan (-140) and Anthony Macri (-195). Between Macri and Logan Wagner, the pair have combined to win the last six events at the Speedway and enter as local favorites.

Other local favorites such as Dewease, Danny Dietrich and more are expected to be in attendance along with weekend invaders such as Brian Brown, who is making the nearly 1000 mile trip from his home state of Missouri to challenge for the steer head trophy and extra money on the line.

Motor Racing Network Winged Nation will also be broadcasting live each night at 5pm EST until 6pm in the commercial building located behind the main grandstands. Fans at the Speedway can watch as their favorite drivers and personalities are interviewed by personalities’ Steve Post and Ashley Stremme and those at home can tune in on the Winged Nation official Facebook page or on their Youtube page as well.

Blake's Hard Cider Co. and Cap Henry Racing will be on hand in that area as well providing samples of their adult beverages along with merchandise and more for fans wishing to partake.

There will be several giveaways for fans arriving for the weekend festivities including hats, shirts, sweatshirts, blankets and koozies. There will also be several kids 12 and under prize packages available for the weekend.

The annual tailgate contest will occur in the parking lot on Sunday at 1pm and first-place will receive a special prize package. Members of the promotional team along with the folks from Winged Nation will be around to help judge the campsites with the 2022 Port Royal pace truck.

Camping is available for $35 total for both nights and available spots are on a first come-first serve basis. For more information regarding camping please check out the Speedway website or contact the Speedway office.

Abbottstown, PA (May 21, 2022) – Freddie Rahmer started off the season with a win at the Ice Breaker to defend his 2021 track championship. Rahmer scored his second victory of the season Saturday on Messick Equipment Night. On the winless stretch Rahmer said, “It’s been a little bit of a test here lately. Feels good to get a win, it’s been awhile.”

Rahmer lined up 8th for the start of the 30-lap feature and found his way into the top five rather quickly, “It was tricky around the top. Borden was putting down a good pace.” Rahmer got by Borden for the lead on lap 22, “I got lucky getting by him before the yellow.”

Looking to capitalize on the momentum Rahmer said, “We’re looking forward to finishing the year off strong here.”

Michael Millard and Trey Hivner, two drivers looking to score their first 410 feature win shared the front row for the start of the 30-lap feature.

Millard had the lead at the line with Hiver and Tim Wagaman battling side by side for second down the back stretch. The caution came out on lap 1 when the leader, Millard, spun out in turns 3 and 4. Jim Siegel, Chat Trout and Zach Allman fell victim to Millard’s spin.

Trey Hivner inherited the lead and led Wagaman, Kyle Moody, Devon Borden and Chase Dietz to the cone for the single-file restart.

Wagaman was all over Hivner as they raced into turn 1. Borden got by Moody for third on the restart. Freddie Rahmer was up to fourth after getting by Dietz.

Borden got by Wagaman for second and Rahmer was working on him for third when the caution came out on lap 4. For the second time, the leader spun out. This time it was Hivner who spun out in turn 4 while leading.

Borden took over the lead for the restart with Wagaman, Rahmer, Dietz and Moody in tow. Borden had a solid restart with Tim Glatfelter taking fifth from Moody at the line. Rahmer moved into second leaving Wagaman to fend off Dietz who was challenging for third. Dietz took the spot on lap 9, just as the leaders caught lapped traffic. The top three, Borden, Rahmer and Dietz, pulled away from the rest of the field using the high line. Rahmer made the move to the bottom to try and reel in Borden, but Devon counteracted his move by moving down as well. As Rahmer and Borden battled, Dietz was able to capitalize and close in on both drivers.

Rahmer had the lead at the line by inches on lap 22 and moved down to the bottom of turn 1 as Borden challenged to take the lead back. The caution came out when Borden ended up in the wall at the top of turns 1 and 2.

The top five for the restart were Rahmer, Dietz, Wagaman, Alan Krimes and Glatfelter.

Rahmer and Dietz both went to the top on the restart with Rahmer pulling away from the field. The red flag came out on lap 25 when Dylan Norris flipped in turn 4.

Dietz tried the bottom on the restart but Rahmer held on to the lead.

Rahmer took the checkered flag .728 seconds ahead of Dietz for his 20th career win at the track. Krimes crossed the line third and Wagaman was fourth. Danny Dietrich drove from 20th to 5th and was the hard charger.

The 410 sprint heat race wins went to Jim Siegel, Freddie Rahmer, Kyle Moody and Michael Millard.

Steve Owings Kicks Off MacMor Summer Series With Victory

Steve Owings wired the field to kick-off the 358 Summer Series with a win on Saturday night.

Owings and Travis Scott shared the front row for the start of the 25-lap feature. Scott did a 360 in turn 2 on lap 1 and the caution was thrown inadvertently, leading to a complete restart.

Owings and Scott raced side by side into turn 1 with Owings taking the lead down the back stretch.

The yellow came out on lap 5 when Brett Strickler, who was running third, was off the pace on the front stretch.

Owings led Scott, Cody Fletcher, Matt Findley and David Holbrook to the cone for the restart.

Owings pulled away and got into lapped traffic on lap 12 with a solid lead over Scott and Fletcher.

The caution came out again on lap 15 when Justin Foster was off the pace in turn 2.

The top five for the restart were Owings, Scott, Fletcher, Findley and Holbrook. Holbrook got under Findley for fourth. Findley, Kody Hartlaub and Chris Frank battled for fifth with Frank taking the spot on lap 18.

Owings pulled away from Scott and caught the tail end of the field and had heavy lapped traffic ahead of him with 2 laps to go.

Owings took the checkered flag 1.143 seconds ahead of Scott. Fletcher crossed the line third and Holbrook was fourth. Frank completed the top five.

358 sprint car heat race wins went to Cody Phillips, David Holbrook, Wyatt Hinkle and Matt Findley.

DANNER, YODER, BARD & JONES TAKE CHECKERS ON A&A AUTO STORES NIGHT

SATURDAY AT SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY

SELINSGROVE IN ACTION THIS THURSDAY, MAY 28, WITH SPECIAL 410 SPRINT CAR,

SUPER LATE MODEL & 305 SPRINT CAR TRIPLHEADER

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Briggs Danner of Allentown settled a thrilling wheel-to-wheel battle with Alex Bright of Collegeville by parking his No. 5G wingless 360 sprint car in Victory Lane for the sixth time this season in USAC East Coast competition.

The victory in the 25-lap main event was the second of Danner’s career at Selinsgrove.

Andrew Yoder of Middleburg won the season opener for limited late models in the division’s 20-lap main event. The win was Yoder’s third overall this season.

Garrett Bard of Wells Tannery held off the late-race challenges of Austin Reed of Etters to score the win in the 20-lap PASS 305 sprint car race.

Two-time defending champion Jake Jones of Hunlock Creek won the 12-lap roadrunner race and became the fourth different winner in as many races at the track this season.

Selinsgrove Speedway is back in action this Thursday, May 26, with a special holiday show featuring the Lelands.com 410 sprint cars, Selinsgrove Ford super late models, and Apache Tree Service 305 sprint cars at 7:30 p.m. Grandstand gates open at 5:30 p.m.

In the USAC 360 sprint car feature, polesitter Tommy Kunsman powered into the lead only to drift into the third turn guardrail and launch into a series of flips. Kunsman escaped injury.

Original third-place starter Ed Aikin restarted the race on the pole and led the first two laps before being passed by fifth-place starter Alex Bright. Aikin kept Bright in his sights for three laps until sixth-place starter Briggs Danner streaked into the runner-up position.

A caution flag on lap 10 for David Swanson reset the field with Bright leading over Danner and fourth-place starter Joey Amantea. At the halfway point, eighth-place starter Mark Smith advanced to fourth.

With 10 laps to race, the race for the lead heated up as Bright and Danner pulled slide jobs for two laps before Danner secured the lead on lap 19 with a pass at the start/finish line.

Danner went on to take the checkered flag over Bright, Amantea, Carmen Perigo, and Smith.

Defending limited late model series champion and polesitter Devin Hart drove into the lead at the start of the division’s main event. Hart was chased by third-place starter Andrew Yoder for the first four laps until Yoder made the winning pass on the frontstretch.

With the field regrouped for a lap six caution flag, Yoder continued to set the pace on the restart with Hart in pursuit. At the halfway marker, Yoder had stretched his lead to nearly a straightaway.

At the finish, Yoder was victorious over Hart, seventh-place starter Trent Brenneman, fourth-place starter Jeremy Ohl, and second-place starter Shaun Lawton.

The start of the 305 sprint car feature was red flagged when Jake Waters’ car had a minor fire break out. Waters was not injured.

When the race restarted, fourth-place starter Garrett Bard drove into the lead and wired the field for the victory but not without a few challenges from third-place starter Austin Reed.

By lap 10, seventh-place starter Domenic Melair advanced to third but withdrew from the race on lap 13 with mechanical issues.

The final caution flag unfurled on lap 17, setting up a chase to the checkered flag between Bard and Reed. At the checkered flag, Bard held off the late-race challenge and scored the win over Reed, sixth-place starter Drew Young, 15th-place starter Doug Dodson, and 11th-place starter Erin Statler.

In the roadrunner race, polesitter Curtis Lawton led through the halfway point, when sixth-place starter Jake Jones used the inside line in turn two to make the winning pass. With four laps to race, fifth-place starter Keith Bissinger blasted into second and set his sights on Jones.

On the final lap, Bissinger was in striking distance but came up short as Jones took the checkered flag. Bissinger settled for second followed by Scott Landis, C. Lawton, and points leader Nate Romig.

Williams Grove Speedway Honors Career Of Randy Wolfe May 27

All Stars Event Offers $10,000 To Win 30-lap Main

5/22/22

Mechanicsburg – The All Stars Circuit of Champions Sprints and the Pennsylvania Posse will gather together to compete in the Randy Wolfe Tribute Race, paying $10,000 to win, coming up this Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway.

The All Stars will bring the likes of Tyler Courtney, Justin Peck, Cory Eliason and Kevin Thomas Jr. to the event while the Pennsylvania Posse will field the likes of Danny Dietrich, Anthony Macri, Lance Dewease and many more.

All the drivers will come together to honor the career of veteran sprint car ace Randy Wolfe of Mechanicsburg.

Now age 65, Wolfe got his start in racing by tagging along with his childhood neighbors to the races.

Plus, the Texaco station where super modified and modified star Bobby Gearhart’s car was kept wasn’t far from his house so that didn’t hurt either. .

Randy Wolfe first drove a go-kart in 1971 before helping out sprint car star Lee Osborne in 1973.

And then in 1976, with Gearhart’s familiar No 5 now painted on his racer, Wolfe went sprint car racing with the URC circuit where he won his first sprint car race ever, at Weedsport, New York, on July 4.

In 1977, Wolfe moved up to the regular sprint car division at Williams Grove Speedway and earned Rookie of the Year Honors at the track before going on to log a total of 11 wins at the historic oval.

His first Williams Grove win came in his rookie season as did the first help he ever had owning a car in the form of LPS Racers, AKA the Lebanon Pattern Shop owned by the Woelfling family.

Aside from the Woelflings, car owners came in the form of Bob Weikert, Ben Cook, Maynard Boop, Daryl Saucier, Bobby Glen and Roger Powell, Leon Wintermyer, Glen Hyneman, Ted Ganoe, Ken Cooper and Gene Jenkins before Wolfe wound down his career driving for Souderton car-owning couple Jim and Laura Allebach from 1996 through 1999.

But surely his most identifiable ride spanned the majority of the 1980’s when he went driving for brothers Bill and Jesse Keen in the Keen Transport No. 5W machine.

In total, Wolfe wrapped up his driving tenure with a total of 64 career sprint car wins including All Stars victories not the least of which was the East Bay Winternationals in 1990 at the wheel of the Wintermyer No. 1W.

Aside from Williams Grove, wins came at Selinsgrove, Lincoln, Port Royal, Susquehanna (now Baps), Silver Springs, Path Valley and in Expo, Ohio.

At the Grove, Wolfe scored both the Jack Gunn Memorial and the Early Bird Championship for Keens in 1984.

He rode home second in the 1983 Williams Grove National Open and he scored his only track title anywhere at Port Royal Speedway in 1982.

Today, Wolfe is still a machinist by trade, a skill he learned while working alongside Osborne back in the 1970s.

And he can still be found in the Williams Grove pits many nights, taking in all the action while watching his track titlist son Lucas Wolfe tour the speedway in that familiar No. 5W.

Gates for the Randy Wolfe Tribute Race on May 27 open at 5:30 with time trials slated for 7:30 pm.

Fireworks will be part of the special holiday weekend program.

Adult general admission is set at $25 with youth ages 13-20 admitted for just $10 while kids ages 12 and under are always admitted for FREE at Williams Grove Speedway.

Dewease Cashes In For First Williams Grove Win Of Season,

Derek Locke Runs 358 Sprint Win Streak To 10 In A Row

5/20/22

Mechanicsburg – Lance Dewease won his first Williams Grove Speedway sprint car main of the 2022 season on Friday night, scoring $5,000 for the win that was also the 104th of his career at the oval.

In the 358 sprint main, the more things change, the more they stay the same as Derek Locke took his 10th win in a row in the division, keeping a streak alive that now spans three seasons – 2020, 2021 and 2022.

Dewease started fourth in the 25-lap 410 sprint main and drove into second as the field sped into the first corner on the opening lap.

He would let polesitter Robbie Kendall lead on the first circuit before he took control with a move around the inside of the fourth corner.

The pace was slowed for the first time on the third lap for a slowing Brent Shearer.

Only one more lap was completed before another caution flag bunched the field.

When action returned, Devon Border put a move on Kendall for second deep within the first turn and Kendall soon spun his mount as Borden drove away while fourth runner Dylan Norris hopped onto the hood of Kendall’s car.

Also looping into the scene was Freddie Rahmer.

Borden gave it a shot when the green flag reappeared but Dewease soon pulled out to a 1.6 second lead by lap seven and he then pulled up on the rear of the field on lap 11.

Seventh starter Chase Dietz drove by Borden with an outside first turn move on lap 12 and began his pursuit of the leader.

Dewease took his time in traffic, allowing Dietz to close the gap before another caution flag unfurled with seven laps to go.

Dietz stayed close to Dewease on the restart and was flexing his muscle aboard the Trone No. 39 while Borden jockeyed with Danny Dietrich for third.

Borden then slowed with a broken rear end with four laps to go.

The restart saw Anthony Macri blast around Dietrich for third before a stout Dietz slowed to a stop in turn four with ignition issues.

This forced a red flag for fuel in order to finish the final two circuits and although Macri stayed closed to Dewease for the win the Fayetteville flyer took the win by .210 seconds.

Dietrich was third followed by Dylan Cisney and Lucas Wolfe.

Sixth through 10th went to Freddie Rahmer, Matt Campbell, Mark Smith, Dylan Norris and Kyle Moody.

Heats went to Dewease, Kendall and TJ Stutts.

Fast time in timed warm-ups was set by Dewease with a lap of 16.493 seconds.

Fifth starter Derek Locke raced by leader Frankie Herr on the sixth circuit of the 20-lap 358 sprint main to keep his streak of domination and wins alive into yet another season since beginning in September, 2020.

Jayden Wolf took second from Herr on lap 12 before Tyler Brehm raced into third with three laps to go.

The front three cars appeared strong during the late going with Locke taking the checkers and Brehm stalking Wolf for the second spot.

Steve Owings finished in the fourth spot followed by Herr.

Sixth through 10th went to Doug Hammaker, Zach Newlin, Nash Ely, Justin Foster and Kody Hartlaub.

Heats went to Ely, Herr and Foster.

Marks Cashes In For $17,500 Williams Grove Outlaws Morgan Cup Victory

Jacob Allen loses heartbreaker after flawless performance

5/14/22

Mechanicsburg – Brent Marks scored the 2022 World of Outlaws Morgan Cup for sprint cars at Williams Grove Speedway on Saturday night, getting the win worth $17,500 in an event that seemed destined to belong to Jacob Allen.

Allen started on the pole of the 30-lap Morgan Cup, and event named for late track owner Morgan Hughes.

And Allen has his No. 1A purring around the speedway, performing flawlessly on all lanes of the oval, in and out of traffic.

However on a restart with two laps to go, Allen’s mount began sputtering when the green replaced the yellow, allowing fourth starter Marks to motor by for the late-race upset.

Allen entered the rear of the field on lap eight of the main event and began putting cars a lap down.

He narrowly avoided disaster seconds later when he somehow managed to get by a spinning Kyle Moody in the third turn.

The Moody mishap slowed the breakneck pace the cars were setting and cleared the track for leader Allen.

Only one more lap was recorded before another yellow flag appeared, this time for a spun Lance Dewease who would rejoin the field but later pull pitside.

The restart saw Brock Zearfoss get out of shape on the frontchute, again forcing a yellow flag.

Sheldon Haudenschild lined up second for the new green with Marks in third and Allen jetted away when action resumed, pulling out to a 1.1 second lead in just one circuit.

Allen again entered the back of the field on lap 18 and worked his way through the field perfectly, choosing his lanes at will while beginning to feel pressure from Haudenschild and Marks.

The front three cars did bunch up briefly with eight laps to go as they struggled to put TJ Stutts a lap down and it was during that time when Marks used Stutts as a pick to blast to Haudenschild’s inside on the backstretch and steal second spot.

Once free of Stutts, Allen again built up a 1.2 second advantage over Marks and was within sight of the white flag when Matt Campbell’s slowing racer brought out a yellow flag, forcing a green-white-checker run to the finish.

And that’s when disaster struck the pacesetter as on the restart his mount stumbled and sputtered as he brought the field back to the stripe.

Allen tried to recover and slide himself to keep Marks at bay but the move failed and Marks catapulted by on the backstretch with a lap and a half to go as Allen soon pulled pitside.

The victory was the 14th of Marks’ career at Williams Grove Speedway and his second of the season after taking a win over the All Stars in late April.

The Myerstown driver also scored over the World of Outlaws in Texas earlier this season.

His win in the Morgan Cup means that the Cup trophy itself will again find its way back home to the offices of Williams Grove Speedway after spending the last two years at World of Outlaws headquarters.

Marks cashed in on a $500 bonus for beating the outlaws drivers as a member of the Pennsylvania Posse as posted by event sponsor H & N Landscaping of Mechanicsburg.

With Allen sputtering backward, Carson Macedo drove by Haudenschild in the final laps to get second.

However the Californian came up light at the scales in post-race inspection, relegating him to the final position in the rundown.

Mark’s margin of victory was 1.517 seconds.

Haudenschild inherited second while Rico Abreu was third.

Donny Schatz and Logan Schuchart completed the top five finishers.

Sixth through 10th went to David Gravel, Brad Sweet, Spencer Bayston, James McFadden and Gio Sclezi.

Heats went to Allen, Haudenschild, Abreu and Schatz with Allen winning the dash and McFadden taking the B Main.

The completed on the B Main and the A Main was delayed some 90 minutes when light rain hit the speedway with one lap of the B having been recorded.

Macedo set overall quick time in time trials with a lap of 16.517 seconds.

Feature Finish

5/14/22

410 sprint cars, 30 laps: 1. Brent Marks, 2. Sheldon Haudenschild, 3. Rico Abreu, 4. Donny Schatz, 5. Logan Schuchart, 6. David Gravel, 7. Brad Sweet, 8. Spencer Bayston, 9. James McFadden, 10.

Port Royal Speedway Announcement Regarding Camping for the Remainder of the 2022 Racing Season

By-Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Pa. (May 13, 2022) After months of constructive conversation and deliberation between the Port Royal Speedway and the Port Royal Borough representatives, permission has been granted to the race track to resume camping activities on a weekly basis on the grounds.

Please note that this is only a temporary agreement between the two parties and all rules and obligations regarding camping must be fulfilled and complied to the highest of standards. This includes an emphasis on the 'no fires' rules already put in place by the borough and Speedway.

We will be operating camping on the current rules set in place at the race track and all prospective campers will receive a copy of these rules upon their arrival at the track. Note that these rules are likely to change or be altered going forward as the two parties continue to work on a long-term solution regarding camping at the Speedway.

The individuals who had reserved camping spots in the past have already been notified or will be notified shortly and they will have first dibs on the renewal of those spots. Yearly reserved electric camping spots will be $500, which is a decrease of $200 as a result of the lost races and weather cancellations. We are requesting that you notify the track no later than Wednesday, May 25th on your plans for the season so we can offer any unclaimed spots to the general public.

These spots do not include the American Flat Track event or the end of season Short Track Super Series event on the schedule.

Any electric spots not claimed will be available for camping at a weekly price of $40/night going forward. Non-Electric spots will be offered on a weekly basis at $25/night or $35 for any multi-day show.

We appreciate your patience and understanding throughout this process and we realize it has been frustrating at times. However, we look forward to seeing you at the track in the coming months as there are many big events making their way to the Port Royal Speedway. You can find a full listing of those events at www.portroyalspeedway.com

For those choosing to partake in the camping activities for the remainder of the season, we ask that you follow the rules set in place. Just as we have been able to return to camping, it can be gone in an instant if the standards set in place are not met. Thank you for your cooperation!

 

 

World of Outlaws Morgan Cup This Week At Williams Grove

Macri Ready To Rumble Against Travelers!

5/8/22

Mechanicsburg – The NOS Energy Drink World of Outlaws Sprint Cars Series will invade Williams Grove Speedway for the first time this season coming up this Friday and Saturday night, May 13 and 14, for the running of Morgan Cup Weekend.

H & N Landscaping will present Morgan Cup Weekend, getting underway both nights at 7:30 pm.

Adult general admission on Friday is set at $30 with Saturday priced at $35. Youth ages 13 –20 will be admitted for $15 both nights.

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

Friday night’s affair will pay $10,000 to the winner of the 25-lap feature while Saturday’s 30-lap winner will receive $12,000 plus another 5K to be declared the 2022 Morgan Cup Champion.

The winner will also rest on bragging rights as Morgan Cup Champion for a year of either the World of Outlaws series stars or those of the Pennsylvania Posse.

Each feature event, both Friday and Saturday, will pay $1,000 just to start.

A two-day sweep could net one driver a cool $27,000!

In memory of former track champion Jim Nace, the Fast Tees Fast Time Award worth $300 will be up for grabs both nights for the driver who sets overall quick time.

Fireworks will be part of both programs.

The locals known as the Pennsylvania Posse will have a few stars shining bright as the outlaws invasion begins.

Both Brent Marks and Anthony Macri have shown great speed already this season and indeed both have won at the Grove since the year began.

Macri of Dillsburg was on fire in the region in April, scoring six of seven events entered at one point during mid-month.

“I definitely feel like we are a little bit more confident than years past,” says Macri about his perspective on his chances of scoring against the outlaws when they hit town.

“I feel like the car has been pretty solid the whole night compared to years past and we’re finally able to put ourselves in a position to time trial well which is really important against the outlaws.”

“I feel like if we can put ourselves in a dash then I feel like a win isn’t out of the equation,” Macri says.

Lemoore, California’s Carson Macedo has been in outlaws victory lane most this season to date, pocketing four wins as the Williams Grove shows come into sight.

Further back on the win list but again sitting atop the World of Outlaws Series points as Williams Grove dawns is “The Big Cat,” Brad Sweet of Grass Valley, California.

Sweet has just one win on the year so far but has racked up the top five finishes, sitting at 12 in 17 season starts.

The Californians are primed for their invasion into Posse land as is Connecticut’s David Gravel who is now third in outlaws points.

Two of the trio in the form of Gravel and Macedo have gotten the job done at Williams Grove already in their careers, combining for a total of 11 career oval wins while Sweet is still looking for his elusive first.

Danny Dietrich is the current Williams Grove points leader after staging a massive run from 17th to second on April 29.

Advanced reserved seat tickets for all 2022 Williams Grove Speedway and the NOS Energy Drink World of Outlaws Sprint Cars Series events are available exclusively through the NOS Energy Drink World of Outlaws.

Fans who wish to obtain any reserved seats for any of the six outlaws events at the track in 2022 can purchase tickets via the official outlaws official website located at www.worldofoutlaws.com/tix or by calling 1.844.DIRT.TIX.

A premier residential and commercial landscaping company in the region, H & N Landscaping will present the entire weekend of World of Outlaws/Pennsylvania Posse racing action.

H & N Landscaping, located at 675 Williams Grove Road in Mechanicsburg, has been serving the region for over 35 years.

Abbottstown, PA (April 30, 2022) – After a week away, Danny Dietrich was back to race in the pigeon hills on Saturday night. Despite missing a race, Dietrich went into the night with a comfortable lead in the season championship point standings.

Danny lined up eighth for the start of the 30-lap feature and was up to fourth by lap 4, “I used everything. I was on both fences.” Once again Danny praised the track conditions, “The track’s pretty awesome.”

Saturday’s win was Dietrich’s fourth at the track in eight races. The worst Danny has finished this year at Lincoln is fourth, “We got really good straightaway speed here right now.”

Dietrich and the Gary Kauffman Racing team are looking forward to the World of Outlaws’ visit in two weeks, “Excited for the next couple of weeks coming up,” Dietrich continued, “Our confidence level is pretty high.”

Rookie of the year contender, Riley Emig started on the pole of Saturday night’s 30-lap feature. Jordan Givler, who started second, led the field into turn 1 with Emig in second and Chad Trout running third.

Dylan Norris looked under Trout and took third at the line on lap 1.

Eighth place starting, Danny Dietrich, was into the top five on lap 2.

Troy Wagaman and Norris battled for second with Emig. Norris took the spot and Wagaman followed. Dietrich got by Emig for fourth on lap 4 and Devon Borden moved into fifth on lap 5.

Norris was closing in on Givler and drove to the inside of turn 3 to try and take the lead but Givler held onto the lead on lap 7. Dietrich had caught Wagaman and the two battled for third.

Norris tried to take the lead again, this time with a slider in turns 1 and 2, but Givler was not giving it up. Dietrich caught Norris and got by him as they raced down the back stretch to take second on lap 10. Danny pulled the same move on Givler the following lap to take the lead at the line on lap 11.

Close racing between Norris and Givler for second as they appeared to make contact at the end of the back shoot as they battled for second.

Just as Dietrich got into lapped traffic on lap 13 the caution flag came out for Austin Bishop and Brandon Rahmer. The two cars spun out right in front of the leaders and collected Givler who spun out trying to avoid the accident. They nearly collected Norris as well.

The top five for the restart were Dietrich, Norris, Borden, Wagaman and Billy Dietrich.

Norris went to the bottom in turn 1 but could not make the pass on Dietrich. It did allow Borden to get by Norris for second.

The yellow flag flew again on lap 15 when Kyle Moody and Tyler Esh got together in turn 2. Alex Bowman spun out trying to avoid the incident but was able to rejoin the field.

Danny went to the bottom of turns 1 and 2 on the restart with Borden looking to the top side. Freddie Rahmer got by Billy for fifth.

Borden was still ripping the top and closing in on Dietrich as they caught the tail end of the field. Lapped traffic came into play on lap 22 but before things got exciting, the yellow flag came out on lap 23 when Aaron Bollinger stopped on the front stretch.

Danny got a good jump on Borden on the restart. Norris took a shot at Borden for second which allowed Rahmer to get by him for third.

Troy Wagaman got by Norris to take fourth but Norris got him back by a nose at the line. Wagaman took over the spot on the following lap.

Dietrich was pulling away when the caution came out again on lap 27 when Emig spun in turn 2.

Borden pulled a slider on Dietrich in turns 1 and 2 on the restart but did not make the pass.

Dietrich won his fourth race of the season at Lincoln by 1.135 seconds ahead of Borden. Rahmer finished third and Wagaman was fourth. Billy Dietrich completed the top five.

The 410 sprint car heat races went to Dylan Norris, Billy Dietrich, Riley Emig and Jordan Givler.

Frankie Herr Back in Victory Lane at Lincoln

Frankie Herr found himself back in victory lane at Lincoln on Saturday night. It was his second career 358 sprint car win at the track, but Herr had most recently seen victory lane in the Super Sportsman division where he sits atop the all-time win list with seven wins.

Herr shared the front row for the start of the 20-lap feature with pole-sitter Wyatt Hinkle.

Herr had the advantage going into turn 1 with Hinkle on his tail as they raced back down the back stretch.

Jayden Wolf brought out the caution on lap 1. The yellow turned to red when Shane Yost got collected and ended up with his nose in the air. Kody Hartlaub was also involved. Cody Fletcher nearly got collected but was able to keep going after contact with Wolf. Wolf had been running fourth when he spun.

The top five for the restart were Herr, Hinkle, Fletcher, Steve Owings and Jeff Rohrbaugh.

Rohrbaugh got under Owings coming out of turn 2 on the restart to take fourth but Owings took the spot back at the line by inches.

The yellow flag came out on lap 3 when Jacob Balliet was sitting backwards in turn 3.

Owings blocked the bottom in the turns on the restart to take away Rohrbaugh’s line and prevent a pass. Not only did the bottom hold off Rohrbaugh for Owings, but it also allowed him to reel in Fletcher. Owings took third on lap 5.

Herr and Hinkle were running up front with Owings reeling them in. Owings was on Hinkle’s bumper by lap 10. Owings took second in turns 1 and 2 on lap 11.

Herr had lapped traffic ahead of him as Owings was closing in. Lapped traffic was a factor starting on lap 13. Owings got under Herr on the back stretch as they raced in lapped traffic but the caution came out on lap 14 before the pass for the lead was official. The caution was for Hinkle who came to a stop in turn 4.

Owings was not able to find his way back by Herr in the closing laps of the feature. Herr got to the checkered flag 1.197 seconds ahead of Owings. Fletcher crossed the line third and Rohrbaugh was fourth. Nash Ely finished fifth.

The 358 sprint car heat winners were Jeff Rohrbaugh, Shane Yost, Frankie Herr and Wyatt Hinkle.

Mark Hahn Wins Pen-Mar Vintage Feature

Mark Hahn took the lead on lap 2 from Jim Kirkwood and never looked back. The 15-lap feature saw one caution which came on lap 10 for Joe Jester.

World of Outlaws Morgan Cup Weekend Coming To Williams Grove May 13 & 14

Californians leading the way into Posse Land battle!

5/1/22

Mechanicsburg – The NOS Energy Drink World of Outlaws Sprint Cars Series will make its first visit of the season to Williams Grove Speedway coming up in two weeks, on May 13 and 14.

The outlaws will battle the Pennsylvania Posse in the H & N Landscaping Morgan Cup Weekend, getting underway both nights at 7:30 pm.

Adult general admission on Friday is set at $30 with Saturday priced at $35. Youth ages 13 –20 will be admitted for $15 both nights.

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

Friday night’s affair will pay $10,000 to the winner of the 25-lap feature event.

Saturday’s 30-lap winner will receive $12,000 plus another 5K to be declared the 2022 Morgan Cup Champion to go along with bragging rights as Morgan Cup Champion for a year of either the World of Outlaws series stars or those of the Pennsylvania Posse.

Each feature event, both Friday and Saturday, will pay $1,000 just to start.

A sweep of both nights could net one driver a cool $27,000!

In memory of former track champion Jim Nace, the Fast Tees Fast Time Award worth $300 will be up for grabs both nights for the driver who sets overall quick time.

Lemoore, California’s Carson Macedo has been in outlaws victory lane most this season to date, pocketing four wins as the Williams Grove shows come into sight.

Aboard the Jason Johnson Racing No. 41, Macedo is arguably off to the best start to a season of his outlaws career.

Further back on the win list but again sitting atop the World of Outlaws Series points as Williams Grove dawns is “The Big Cat,” Brad Sweet of Grass Valley, California.

Sweet has just one win on the year so far but has racked up the top five finishes, sitting at 12 in 17 season starts.

The Californians are primed for their invasion into Posse land as is Connecticut’s David Gravel who is now third in outlaws points.

Two of the trio in the form of Gravel and Macedo have gotten the job done at Williams Grove already in their careers, combining for a total of 11 career oval wins while Sweet is still looking for his elusive first.

Just like last season at this point, no driver has been dominant at Williams Grove this year with five main events having spread the wealth between five different drivers including Justin Peck, Dylan Norris, Anthony Macri, Dylan Norris and most recently Devon Borden.

Danny Dietrich is the current points leader.

Macri has been on fire in the region during the last few weeks, scoring six of seven events entered at one point during mid-April.

Both he and independent 2022 runner Marks, who has shown great speed this season and has already picked up a win on the trail this year with the World of Outlaws, may be the “locals” best chances at pulling off a win on May 13 and 14.

Advanced reserved seat tickets for all 2022 Williams Grove Speedway and the NOS Energy Drink World of Outlaws Sprint Cars Series events are available exclusively through the NOS Energy Drink World of Outlaws.

Fans who wish to obtain any reserved seats for any of the six outlaws events at the track in 2022 can purchase tickets via the official outlaws official website located at www.worldofoutlaws.com/tix or by calling 1.844.DIRT.TIX.

A premier residential and commercial landscaping company in the region, H & N Landscaping will present the entire weekend of World of Outlaws/Pennsylvania Posse racing action.

H & N Landscaping, located at 675 Williams Grove Road in Mechanicsburg, has been serving the region for over 35 years.

SHULTZ, RINE & MITCH BEST STRONG FIELDS IN URC SPRINT CAR, SUPER LATE MODEL

& ROADRUNNER COMPETITION SATURDAY AT SELINSGROVE SPEEEDWAY

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Jason Shultz of Carlisle took the lead from Troy Betts of Newark, Del., on lap four and soared to the victory in Saturday’s 25-lap United Racing Club main event on Real Diehl Excavating Night at Selinsgrove Speedway.

The $2,000 victory was Shultz’s 23rd career in 358-360 sprint car competition at Selinsgrove at the wheel of the Ritter Racing/Selinsgrove Ford No. 35.

Jeff Rine of Danville scored a convincing victory in the 25-lap super late model main event. The win was worth $3,000 and was the 14-time champion’s 114th career victory at the track. Rine was also the fast qualifier over the stout 25-car field with a lap time of 18.926.

Brad Mitch of McClure held off several challenges for his 29th career roadrunner win in the division’s 12-lap feature.

Selinsgrove Speedway will present the Sand Hill Smash II Demo Derby at 2 p.m. Saturday, May 7. Grandstand gates will open at 12 p.m. The next race is the Ron Keister Memorial for super late models and limited late models at 7 p.m. Saturday, May 14.

Troy Betts started on the front row for the first 360 sprint car feature of the season and bolted into the lead at the drop of the green flag. Current points leader and fourth-place starter Derek Hauck quickly challenged Betts for the lead in the opening laps.

The field was regrouped on lap two when Derek Locke spun in turn one and was able to rejoin. When the race resumed third-place starter Jason Shultz powered into second and set his sights on Betts. On the fourth circuit, Shultz made the winning pass using the inside lane off turn four.

The race was stopped on lap nine when Will Brunson crashed hard in turn four and escaped serious injury. For the restart, Shultz led Betts, Hauck, fifth-place starter Adam Carberry, and sixth-place starter Ryan Taylor.

Carberry quickly advanced to second and became Shultz’s biggest threat in the latter stages of the event. In the closing laps, Carberry was reeling in Shultz in slower traffic but came up short at the finish. Shultz was victorious over Carberry, 10th-place starter Josh Weller, Taylor, and eighth-place starter Davie Franek.

Polesitter Jeff Rine powered into the lead at the start of the super late model feature and wired the field for the victory but not without a few challenges from second-place starter Hayes Mattern and fourth-place starter Dan Stone.

In the opening laps of the race, third-place starter Jim Bernheisel was also in the mix for the top five running positions along with fifth-place starter Andy Haus. The race’s first caution flag unfurled on lap 13 for J. Bernheisel when his car fell off the pace while racing fourth.

On the ensuing restart, Stone rocketed into second and made Rine a target for the lead. With 10 laps to race, 10th-place starter Dylan Yoder and eighth-place starter Brett Schadel entered the top five and showed a lot of speed.

With five laps remaining, Rine held a comfortable lead over Stone. A torrid three-car battle unfolded for third between Mattern, Schadel, and D. Yoder.

At the checkered flag, Rine scored his first win of the season over Stone, Mattern, Schadel, and D. Yoder. Yoder was also the race’s hard charger.

In the roadrunner feature, second-place starter Bob Bussey pulled into the early lead. Bussey and fourth-place starter Nate Romig dueled for the front spot as sixth-place starter Brad Mitch quickly joined the battle at the front of the pack.

Mitch secured the lead on lap four and held off the late-race challenges from Romig, two-time defending champion Jake Jones, and Keith Bissinger. On the white flag lap, the leaders were three-wide racing off turn two as Mitch maintained the edge down the backstretch.

At the finish, Mitch was victorious by the slimmest of margins over Jones, Romig, Bissinger, and Jimmy Kessler.

Logan Wagner Earns Third Win of the Season While Colton Flinner Stays Perfect. Kenny Heffner Earns PA Sprint Series Win

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway – PORT ROYAL, PA – (May 1, 2022) Logan Wagner held off Dylan Cisney and Lucas Wolfe to pick up his third Weikert's Livestock 410 Sprint Car victory of the season Saturday night.

The win was worth $4000 and was Wagner's third triumph of the 2022 racing season. With point leader Anthony Macri in Bristol competing with the World of Outlaw Sprint Car Series, the win also propelled 'The Pilot' to the top spot in the Weikert's Livestock track point standings in his drive for five consecutive championships.

"This car is great right now and I just have to thank everyone for getting me here," said Wagner. "These guys are getting better here and it shows. We've just got to keep getting better as a team and keep trying to click off these wins."

Wolfe and Cisney led the field of 20 cars to the green flag and Wolfe briefly held the top spot exiting turn two before Cisney used a head of steam down the backstretch to lead the opening circuit. Meanwhile Wagner, who started sixth, moved into the final podium position as well in third.

It was fourth-place starter Michael Walter II on the move on lap two as he moved past Wagner for third and the following lap he used the bottom of the track to move past Wolfe for the runner-up spot as well. Wagner also stayed hot on the trail as he got by Wolfe to move back into third.

Cisney built up nearly a 1.5 second advantage after the completion of lap six and two laps later Wagner dispatched of Walter II for the runner-up position and set his sights on the leader. Within one lap he had already cut half a second into the deficit and by lap 15 Cisney hit the tail end of the field and was in lapped traffic.

Wagner cut the deficit in half to .450 within two laps and he slid under Cisney in turn's one and two to take the lead coming to the start-finish line one lap later. However, Cisney wasn't going away without a fight and he slid under Wagner in turn's one and two to re-take the lead with 11 to go.

Wagner re-took the lead in turn's one and two on the following lap to lead with 10 to go, but any momentum he was looking to gain was halted on the following circuit when seventh-place driver Justin Whittall got into the outside guardrail exiting turn two to bring out the caution with nine laps remaining. Whittall rejoined the field after a brief time in the pits for repairs.

Wagner took off without contest from Cisney at the return to green-flag action, while the battle for third heated up behind them between Walter II, Wolfe and Blane Heimbach. The three drivers swapped positions a handful of times over the next five laps before Wolfe settled into the final podium position with three laps to go. Heimbach appeared ready to follow suit coming to the flagstand to get the two-to-go sign, but he and Walter II made contact exiting turn four to send Heimbach into the outside frontstretch guardrail. The incident ended Heimbach's night early and set up a two-lap dash for the checkered flag for Wagner and Cisney.

Wagner took off unchallenged following the restart and went on to pick up the checkered flag with ease. Cisney, Wolfe, Mike Wagner and Walter II filled out the top five. Jeff Halligan, Gerard McIntyre Jr, Rick Lafferty, Whittall and Kody Lehman rounded out the top ten. Logan Wagner earned the $500 Valley Supply Hard Charger Award after starting sixth while 19th-place finisher Kassidy Kreitz earned the J&S Classics $1000 Warrior Award via random draw.

"Dylan Cisney ran a heck of a race and so did the 33 (Mike Walter II)," said Wagner. "We're gearing up for some more racing going forward and we'll see what we have at some other places. I'm just ecstatic to be here and the results show how fast we are."

For Cisney, the runner-up was a solid effort after a frustrating start to his season.

"We're trying to work on things and just can't seem to get the car perfect in the slick like we have before." said Cisney. "We've had some bad luck this year and hopefully we'll be one better spot here soon. We'll keep trying and I have no doubt we'll get there soon enough."

410 Sprint Car Results- 1. Logan Wagner, 2. Dylan Cisney, 3. Lucas Wolfe, 4. Mike Wagner, 5. Mike Walter II, 6. Jeff Halligan, 7. Gerard McIntyre, 8. Rick Lafferty, 9. Justin Whittall, 10.

Borden Wires For Williams Grove Sprints Win, Dietrich Puts On Passing Clinic

Josh Weller wins oval first in URC Sprints

4/29/22

Mechanicsburg – Devon Borden wired the field from the pole to pick up the second win of his career at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, taking $5,500 for his 25 laps of work.

Borden took the win ahead of Danny Dietrich, who put on a passing clinic after starting 17th in the field.

In the 25-lap URC Sprint main it was Josh Weller scoring the first oval win of his career.

Borden’s pace with the lead was halted on the second lap when the cars of Aaron Bollinger and Dylan Cisney tangled in the third turn.

Bollinger’s mount was destroyed.

Borden restarted ahead of Mark Smith when the green replaced the yellow but Brent Shearer soon got by Smith for second.

Shearer was riding the top groove while Borden preferred the inside lane and soon Shearer began biting into Borden’s lead as the race progressed.

And by lap seven Shearer was knocking on the door for control.

At that point Borden changed lanes around the big half-mile and went up top to begin pulling away as Smith retook the runner up spot.

Meanwhile, from the back of the pack, Danny Dietrich was blasting low and high, darting around the oval to pass cars at will at a blistering pace.

By lap 10, Dietrich was riding sixth in the field.

At the halfway point, Borden had Smith, Shearer, Freddie Rahmer and Tyler Ross in the top five.

As Borden circled the track with the lead, Rahmer battled with Ross first and then Shearer before taking third with eight laps to go and Dietrich soon followed him into fourth.

The leader entered the backmarkers with five laps to go and Borden quickly got held up by cars racing for position just in front.

Smith was bearing down on Borden for the lead when another red flag appeared with four laps to go for seventh runner Alan Krimes who stopped on the track with a fire in the engine compartment.

Borden pulled away on the restart as Dietrich dispatched Rahmer before getting around Smith for second with a lap to go.

However Dietrich would come up one spot short thanks to time running out as Borden took the checkers some 2.5 seconds ahead at the finish.

Smith rode home third followed by Rahmer and Ross.

Sixth through 10th went to Brandon Rahmer, Justin Whittall, Lucas Wolfe, Shearer and Cisney.

Heats went to Borden and Shearer.

Borden drew the third starting spot for the URC main and was eyeing a sweep of the night before his plans went awry as the field began the second lap.

Tyler Brehm entered the first turn with the lead only to see Derek Hauck make contact with the back of his car, turning him sideways as he flew sideways up across the speedway.

Doug Hammaker blasted into the scene, dislodging Hauck but also collecting Borden against the outside rail.

Hauck got the point for the restart followed by Steve Buckwalter, Nash Ely and Josh Weller.

Buckwalter drove by for control when action restarted and threatened to pull away but Weller motored into second on lap six and began tracking him down.

It took seven more laps until Weller caught the leader, using the inside lane to run him down and then drive by.

Buckwalter seemed to find some speed after getting passed up for control and was coming back on Weller for the lead, running to Weller’s outside in the third and fourth turns when a spun car in the fourth corner forced a yellow flag.

The caution period settled the pace and cleared the track for Weller who made good on the opportunity to get the $1,500 victory.

Buckwalter was just under two seconds back at the finish followed by Derek Locke.

Borden blasted back to the front after restarting at the rear to end up fourth.

Hauck rode home fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Lucas Wolfe, Nash Ely, Jason Shultz, Jake Karklin and Cody Fletcher.

Heats for the 32-car field went to Adam Carberry, Shultz, Hauck and Buckwalter with Mike Thompson scoring the consolation race.

“Our family is very thankful for our many contributing supporters who were able to assist us in making this special event come together,” shared Brian Leppo on behalf of JoAnn and the family. “Conewago coming onboard as the Presenting Sponsor was a game changer for the event. Steve enjoyed a successful racing career all across our PA tracks and beyond, but he called Lincoln Speedway his home track. Thank you to Lincoln for hosting the Black Bandit Tribute race. A lot of effort was put in to offer the drivers and teams all the bells and whistles so to speak in honor of our Hall of Fame driver. Steve became a Legend with a tremendous amount of success at Lincoln. We wanted to make this event special with added incentives that all teams could possibly benefit from with this race. With the final purse and additional bonus it’s looking like a fantastic night at the Fabulous Lincoln Speedway for the Black Bandit Tribute race. We are really looking forward to June 4th.”

MACRI WINS EIGHTH RACE OF SEASON IN SELINSGROVE TILLEY CLASSIC;

SCHADEL OUTDUELS RINE FOR SUPER LATE MODEL VICTORY;

BUSSEY RETURNS TO ROADRUNNER VICTORY LANE

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Anthony Macri of Dillsburg continued his early season domination in central Pennsylvania 410 sprint car racing with a victory in Sunday night’s Ray Tilley Classic at Selinsgrove Speedway. In a string of five nights of racing, Macri won four races!

Macri earned $5,088 for his victory in the annual race honoring the memory of the speedway’s all-time sprint car winner and four-time champion Ray Tilley of Pine Grove. It was Macri’s fifth career win at the track.

He was also the Fast Tees Fast Time award winner with a lap time of 16.221 at the wheel of the Macri Concrete/J&S Fabrication No. 39M.

Brett Schadel of Herndon held off the challenges of defending track champion Jeff Rine of Danville for his first win of 2022 and fifth career at the track in the 25-lap super late model feature.

Bob Bussey of Northumberland returned to Victory Lane for his 27th career win in the 12-lap roadrunner race.

Selinsgrove Speedway is back in action at 6 p.m. Saturday, April 30, with the United Racing Club 360 sprint cars, super late models, and roadrunners on Real Diehl Excavating Night. Track gates will open at 4 p.m.

Polesitter Freddie Rahmer stormed into the lead at the start of the sprint car main event. Rahmer was chased by fourth-place starter Brent Marks for the first lap. The caution flag unfurled for Ethan Stutts who made contact with the third turn wall on lap two.

When the race resumed, Marks pulled a slider on Rahmer in turns one and two for the lead. Third-place starter Anthony Macri followed Marks into the runner up position along with sixth-place starter Blane Heimbach. In the early laps, Heimbach attempted to power by Macri for the second position.

Another caution flag for Michael Walter in turn three regrouped the field on lap five. On the ensuing restart, Macri kept Marks in his sights. On the 17th circuit, Macri pulled alongside Marks on the backstretch and made the winning pass entering turn three.

In the final laps, Macri opened up a comfortable lead and posted a 2.7-second margin of victory over Marks for his first win in the Tilley Classic. Heimbach, fifth-place starter Lucas Wolfe, and 10th-place starter Dylan Norris completed the top five.

Front row starter Dan Stone pulled into the lead on the initial start of the super late model feature. On the second attempt, Stone’s car broke and he was forced to withdraw from the race. When the green flag waved for the third time, polesitter Brett Schadel took the lead and wired the field for the victory but not without several challenges from eighth-place starter Jeff Rine at the end of the race.

At the halfway point, Schadel led Rine, fifth-place starter Jim Bernheisel, and sixth-place starter Andy Haus. With five laps to go, 10th-place starter Bryan Bernheisel showed some speed and moved into third.

In the final laps, Rine made several attempts to pass Schadel on the inside to no avail. A caution flag on lap 24 set up a chase to the checkered flag with Schadel edging out Rine by .65 of a second. B. Bernheisel, Dylan Yoder and J. Bernheisel completed the top five.

Front row starter Terry Kramer powered into the lead at the start of the roadrunner race. On the third circuit, fourth-place starter Bob Bussey made the winning pass using the inside lane in turns one and two.

During the second half of the race, several caution flags regrouped the field but Bussey was able to stretch his lead over Kramer each time. Sixth-place starter Curtis Lawton made a charge into the third position in the final laps of the race but drifted back.

At the finish, Bussey was victorious over Kramer, seventh-place starter Nate Romig, ninth-place starter Matt Ney, and Lawton.

Anthony Macri Conquers the All Stars for Second Career Keith Kauffman Classic Victory at Port Royal Speedway; Briggs Danner Wins USAC East Coast

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway– PORT ROYAL, PA – (April 24, 2022) Anthony Macri and Logan Wagner have been cream of the crop all season at Port Royal Speedway. The duo have finished 1-2 twice already this season and between the pair, they had already captured four victories when entering Saturday's 7th Annual Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions Keith Kauffman Classic presented by Valley Supply.

Continuing with the trend, the pair put on a battle for the ages as Macri held off the very best Wagner had to give to pick up the $10,000 victory in front of a jam-packed crowd Saturday night. The win was Macri's second in the event in the last three season's and his fifth career triumph with the All Star series.

"After our incident, me and Logan talked on the phone and we came to the conclusion that we were not going to give each other an inch," said Macri. "With starting sixth, I knew I needed to make something happen on the start as it was going to be a battle."

Wagner and All Star competitor Parker Price-Miller led the field of 28 drivers to the green flag and it was Wagner taking the lead on the opening circuit. Wagner's father, Mike, was third after setting Packer's Concessions, LLC. Quick Time earlier in the night.

Macri started sixth on the grid and by lap six he was lurking outside of the podium in fourth. One lap later the leaders were already in heavy lapped traffic and two laps later Macri moved into third.

Macri got by Price-Miller on lap 11 and he quickly started to reel in the four-time defending Port Royal Track Champion. By lap 17, Macri was all over the tail-tank of Wagner and the two exchanged slide-job's the following lap before Macri took over the top spot on lap 19.

However, Wagner wasn't finished yet. Wagner stayed close and on lap 24 and 25 the top two drivers brought the fans to their feet with sliders at both ends of the racetrack. It appeared that Wagner may have finally gotten the best of Macri, but the caution flew for a slowing TJ Stutts on the frontstretch to give Macri back the top spot.

"I was driving pretty aggressive and I may have been too aggressive too soon," said Macri. "He was all over me and I knew I needed to make the car as wide as I could to keep him behind."

With clean air in front of him, the expectation was that Macri may have caught a break. However, Wagner was far from finished trying to score his second consecutive Kauffman Classic and the pair raced within a car-length on the restart.

Coming to the two-to-go sign at the flagstand, Wagner raced alongside of Macri entering turn one and threw a slide job to briefly take over the top spot. However, Macri had the momentum entering the backstretch and regained the lead to take the white flag. Wagner tried the move again in turn one, but this time Macri pinched him down just enough to break Wagner's momentum.

Wagner tired to regroup down the backstretch and rode the wall in turn's three and four hoping for a miracle, but it was Macri by a margin of .584 seconds for the victory and the $10,000. Wagner, Lance Dewease, Ryan Smith and Mike Wagner rounded out the top five.

Lucas Wolfe was sixth followed by Danny Dietrich, who earned the $500 Valley Supply Hard Charger award after winning the B-main and starting 21st. Price-Miller earned the loan top ten finish for the All Stars in eighth and Jeff Halligan and Blane Heimbach finished out the top ten. All Star Bill Balog earned the $1000 J&S Classics Warrior Award via random draw after finishing 13th.

"There may have been something bent or broken on the car as it was a handful to drive those last final laps," said Macri. "I got to give Logan credit as he easily could have driven through me in one and two when we both went to the bottom, so I got to thank him for that.

"The lap before I went to the top and he threw a slider, so I knew it was coming again. I thought we were both crashing. Logan and I kind of have a rivalry going and it was fun racing hard like that and getting a win."

For Wager, the race reminded him of last season's battle in the event when he used a similar move to hold off Macri to take him the win.

"How about the fans out there? It was an unreal race against a stout car," said Wagner. "That's the way it goes sometimes and I can't be upset. I feel like we built a level of respect for each other and we drew a line in the sand. I got a good run there at the end and he shut the door and did what he had to do. I did the same thing to him last year and that's just what you have to do sometimes."

For Dewease, he was just a spectator at the end as he ran out of time to mount a serious charge.

"We were a lot better than we were in the dash as we were terrible, but we got rolling there at the end," said Dewease. "I was really good there at the end, but those two are pretty good when in clean air and we'll take the third and keep plugging away at it."

Smith, Cap Henry, Price-Miller, Logan Wagner and Justin Whittall all scored heat race victories, which were worth $500 each courtesy of the night's sponsor, Valley Supply.

Briggs Danner came out the top man in a mid-race three car battle between himself, Alex Bright and Mark Smith to score the USAC East Coast Sprint Cars victory Saturday night. The win was worth $2000 and was his second career victory at the Juniata County oval.

Ed Aiken and Smith led the field of 19 cars to the green flag and it was Smith getting the early lead on the field. Smith led the first seven laps of the event before giving way to Bright, who started fourth on the grid. Danner, who started third, followed suit to move into the runner-up spot as well.

Two laps later Danner used a slider in turn's one and two to overtake Bright for the top spot and from there it was smooth sailing. Danner took the win easily over Steven Drevicki, who earned the $100 AV Frenchies Hard Charger Award for the event after starting 11th. Bright, Carmen Perigo and Smith rounded out the top five.

Colin White, Kenny Miller II, Aiken, Christian Bruno and Jason Cherry completed the top ten.

LINCOLN SPEEDWAY

Abbottstown, PA

MATT CAMPBELL SCORES FIRST WIN WITH NEW TEAM; Travis McClelland Victorious in Legends Feature; Andrew Yoder Wires Field for Limited Late Model Win

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Saturday, April 30, 2022 (7:30PM) 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints + Penn-Mar Vintage (York County Racing Club Night)

Saturday, May 7, 2022 (7:30PM) 410 Sprints, Super Sportsman (Tour Series Event) + Extreme Stocks

Saturday, May 11, 2022 (7:30PM) World of Outlaws Gettysburg Clash $10,000 to win for 410 Sprints [rain date: Thursday, May 12]

Abbottstown, PA (April 23, 2022) – Matt Campbell ended 2021 at Lincoln scoring a win in the final race of the season. During the off-season Campbell found himself as the driver for the newly formed Rutherford Motorsports team. The #19R had shown speed on the track, but the team has faced setbacks early in the season, “It’s been a wild start to this year. The car has been great every week. We’re a new team and we’ve had gremlins.” Campbell won his heat, handicapping him to the front of the 30-lap feature. Matt would line up eighth and worked his way to the front of the field just past the half-way point of the race on lap 18. Campbell shared in victory lane, “I made a couple mistakes myself at the beginning but the car got better at the end. Its’ what we wanted to do, set the car up for the last 15 and not the first 15. To me it felt like it just got better and better as the race went along which really helped us out when we got into lapped traffic there to take the lead.”

After the struggles the team faced earlier in the season Campbell couldn’t have said it better, “This is definitely what we needed here.” As part of Gene Latta Ford Wheel of Fortune Night, Campbell had the opportunity to spin the wheel to increase his earnings to $5,000, $6,000 or $7,000. After spinning the wheel it landed on $4,000 for Campbell.

Two #23 cars shared the front row for the start of the feature, pole-sitter Chris Arnold and Michael Millard. Arnold led the field into turn 1 with Millard in third and Tyler Esh running third.

Esh got under Millard in turns 3 and 4 to take second by a nose at the line. Millard battled back in turns 1 and 2 on the next lap. Tyler Ross drove by both of them to move from fourth to second with one pass. Esh got back by Ross for second after the spectacular two car move.

Matt Campbell was up to third on lap 3 and searching for a way around Esh for second. Arnold was approaching lapped traffic on lap 7 with a sizeable lead over Esh.

Campbell tried a slider on lap 10 in turns 1 and 2 but could not make the pass. The move allowed Ross to close in and make it a three-car battle for second.

Campbell pulled another slider, this time turn 4 and this time it worked. Campbell moved into second on lap 15. Ross followed and took fourth.

Aaron Bollinger was closing in on Esh as Campbell was tracking down Arnold for the lead.

Campbell took the lead on lap 18 with Ross right behind him sending Arnold back to third. Bollinger and Arnold swapped spots as they battled for position.

The first and only caution came on lap 24 when Esh spun on the front stretch.

The top five for the restart were Campbell, Ross, Arnold, Bollinger and Hivner.

Arnold looked to the bottom to try and take second back from Ross on the restart but Ross held the spot.

Campbell was closing in on the tail end of the field when the white flag waved. Campbell’s advantage over Ross was nearly a straightaway.

Campbell took the checkered flag 3.552 seconds ahead of Ross. Bollinger crossed the line third and Arnold was fourth. Robbie Kendall completed the top five.

The 410 sprint car heat races went to Chris Arnold, Tyler Esh, Trey Hivner and Matt Campbell.

Travis McClelland Victorious in Legends Feature

Travis McClelland has finished second in Legends features at Lincoln more times than he cares to remember, but on Saturday night he finally parked his family’s #51 in victory lane.

Marks Wins Williams Grove All Stars Tommy Classic

4/22//22

Mechanicsburg – Brent Marks of Myerstown scored the 14th running of the Tommy Hinnershitz Classic at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, taking the win over the All Stars Circuit of Champions Sprint Cars circuit.

The 13th win of Marks’ career at Williams Grove was worth $6,000. It was his first ever in the speedway Tommy Classic.

Marks earned the pole for the 30-lap Tommy race by winning the dash over Lance Dewease and the pair would comprise the front row for the start of the main.

Marks looked good at the front of the field early aboard his No. 19M with both Dewease and Tyler Courtney in tow.

However when the leader entered the backmarkers on the seventh tour, Dewease began to close the gap.

Marks was just coming up on a pair of lapped cars racing side by side, threatening to stall his pace when the first caution flag of the race appeared on the 11th tour for a stopped Cory Eliason.

Under the yellow, Freddie Rahmer came up with a right rear flat while running in sixth after starting in 17th spot.

The restart saw Marks keep Dewease as bay as Courtney made a run at Dewease on the high side in the second turn.

But the trio had spaced out by lap 15 when the red flag unfurled for a two-car crash in the third turn involving Rahmer and Jared Esh.

Both men escaped injury but their cars suffered severe damage.

Dewease took what would be his big shot on the restart.

After following Marks though turns one and two, he blasted deep into the third corner trying to come up with the lead.

However his bid fell a bit short, allowing Marks to pull away instead once the pair hit the straightaway.

A final yellow flag with eight laps to go, again for a stopped Eliason, regrouped the field but Marks blasted away when the green flag returned.

Dewease did his best to track the leader back down by the finish but the margin of victory was .647 seconds for Marks.

“I felt the top going away,” Marks said.

“I knew I had to run around the bottom and make Lance pass me on the top. One nice thing about Lance is you know where he runs around this place. He is so good here and it’s pretty special to beat him.”

Danny Dietrich surged past Courtney for third during the last two laps.

Courtney finished fourth with Anthony Macri riding home in fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Parker Price-Miller, Justin Whittall, Dylan Norris, TJ Stutts and Kyle Reinhardt.

Heats went to Dietrich, Marks, Norris, Ryan Smith and Price-Miller.

Marks won the dash and Justin Peck scored the B Main.

Macri set fast time over the 41-car field with a lap of 16.902 seconds.

Anthony Macri keeps hot streak going with All-Star Sprint win at Bloomsburg Fair Raceway…collects 4th straight win; Tim Buckwalter tops All Pro SpeedSTR field

By DINO OBERTO

(BLOOMBURG 4-21-22) Early into in the afternoon on Thursday officials at the Bloomsburg Fair Raceway where facing a situation of yet another dreary forecast and could it impede the night of racing planned, especially with so many teams from across the country in town for the Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 competing in a $6000-to-win main event along with the All Pro SpeedSTRs.

Not about to toss in the towel the night went on as planned and when the gates eventually swung open hauler after hauler began to file in and likewise fans too and the result was an excellent crowd and bustling pit area plus a national audience watching on live streaming that put the racing spotlight on Bloomsburg.

As it turned out the track was perfectly groomed and both features produced fantastic action as fans witnessed some of the best drivers in the country take on the 3/8th mile dirt oval.

Anthony Macri of Dillsburg, considered one of the hottest Sprint car drivers in the nation right now, scored his fourth 410 Sprint win in a row. Meanwhile Tim Buckwalter of Douglasville held off perennial veteran Billy Pauch Sr., of Frenchtown, NJ and his son Billy Pauch Jr., from Milford, NJ in claiming the All Pro SpeedSTR laurels.

When the 30-lap All Star feature got underway Marci was set to start on the pole but was set back two spots for jumping the initial start. That put Australian Scott Bogucki in the top spot and he would then go on the lead the first nine laps followed by Bill Balog of North Pole AK.

Lapped traffic would become a big factor as the leaders began negotiating back markers by the fifth circuit. Keeping Bogucki close in his sights, Balog used the heavy traffic to catch and pass him with nine laps compete. And no sooner did the pass for the lead take place Bogucki got high in turn one and his car suddenly flipped after clipping the wall. He exited okay but the car was done for the night.

When the action resumed Balog now had Macri chasing him and within a few laps traffic again came into play. As the front pair reached the halfway mark they were in a torrid side-by-side battle while having to meticulously work around lapped cars.

And for Macri that would be his winning advantage as pulled back slightly in order to size up Balog and in doing so got him trapped behind oncoming cars and on lap 17 took over the lead. From then on he was able to drive a solid line and by the time the checkers waved he had a commanding lead.

“It’s always better to be in lapped traffic running second and I was able to zig when he (Balog) zagged. I was able to get through lapped traffic as efficiently as I could and we got the lead and it all paid off and here we are,” said Macri who won the night prior at Bridgeport Speedway and last weekend at Williams Grove and Port Royal Speedways.

“We’ve won four in a row before at Port Royal but to win four in row at four different tracks is pretty damn cool. My guys worked their butts off and I couldn’t be more proud of them and I’ve been trying to do my best behind the wheel.”

Balog held on for a solid second with Justin Peck of Moravia, IN, point leader Tyler Courtney of Indianapolis, IN, and Zeb Wise of Angola, IN rounding out the top five.

“This car feels pretty good and I feel happy with it right now. I have to be honest Macri and that team is super good but on the race track I felt that somehow we should have got the job done. I just made a little mistake and I got hung out to dry in (turns) one and two,” said Balog.

Parker Price Miller of from Kokomo, set a new track record in qualifying with a lap of 13.250 seconds. Marci, Bogucki and Blog won heat races.

For the 20 lap SpeedSTR event Pauch Sr., went to the early lead but behind him was a bevy of close racing breathing down his back as Buckwalter and Pauch Jr., went side-by-side while chasing right behind the leader. Also in the mix was last Thursday night Bloomsburg USAC winner and defending SpeedSTR champ Briggs Danner of Allentown.

By lap three Buckwalter not only shook off Pauch Jr., but quickly zeroed in on Pauch Sr., and the next time around was able to duck to his inside and snag the lead. There was no looking back from there on as he remained solid en route to his first time winning at Bloomsburg.

“The track was awesome and hats to the guys for the great surface they gave us. SpeedSTRs a lot of times get single file but we were able to really run two and three wide all race long and you could really blast it into (turn) one wide and get a good bite,” said Buckwalter.

“When you’re running with both Billy Sr., and Jr., and Briggs, those guys are so good and if show it to them and don’t finish it that might be your last chance so I knew I had to just wait and get a feel for the car.”

After taking the lead Buckwalter showed it was his race to lose as he maintained a consistent line on each passing lap. And despite a few cautions that bunched the field he never wavered.

“This is super exciting to win here. There’s a lot of history at this place and I’ve heard about it over the years and to be here in Victory Lane is a great feeling and hopefully when we come back we can repeat,” said Buckwalter.

Pauch Sr., held on to score second over his son while Alex Bright from Collegeville, also a winner here last Thursday with USAC and Tom Mayberry of Sellersville completed the top five.

“These cars are not well-balanced and you have to sit up in the seat and really drive them and I was giving it the best I could. Timmy got that run on me in (turn) four and my biggest problem was getting into (turn) one, I couldn’t negotiate the car from sliding up,” said Pauch Sr.

“I didn’t come here to run second I came to run first and I’d like to win at Bloomsburg and put that on my win list. This is a nice facility and they just need to massage it a little bit and you’ll have a hell of a race track here.”

Buckwalter swept the night by winning his heat. Pauch Sr., also copped a prelim verdict.

The race is meant to honor Tommy Hinnershitz, known as “The Flying Dutchman,” from Oley, Pennsylvania, who holds the distinction of winning the first ever race held at historic Williams Grove Speedway back on May 21, 1939.

California’s Kyle Larson, an independent driver, pocketed the Tommy Classic loot last season while on his way to claiming the 2021 NASCAR season title.

Larson also copped the classic in 2020.

The late Craig Keel won the first Tommy race in 2007.

No one has won more Tommy Classic races than local Lance Dewease who is a three-time victor.

For the All Stars, the event presents the first chance of the season for the travelers to invade and show their stuff against the famed Pennsylvania Posse.

After starting their history at the track back in 1970, it took until 2019 until a touring All Star in the form of Aaron Reutzel was able to break into victory lane at Williams Grove.

All other shows had been won by the locals and only twice since has an All Star, again as in Reutezel, taken a Williams Grove win.

The travelers’ last win at the track was in September of 2020.

So the question is, has a new winless streak begun for the All Stars at Williams Grove Speedway?

The previous streak lasted some 35 events.

Defending series titlist Tyler Courtney of Indianapolis, Ind., will lead the All Stars into Williams Grove on Friday after just sweeping a pair of races at Attica, Ohio.

Others expected to invade include Cory Eliason, Hunter Schuerenberg, Justin Peck, Zeb Wise, Kyle Reinhardt and more.

Peck already has an unsanctioned win at the track this season after taking the Williams Grove season opener on March 18.

The local fight will be put up by the likes of Lance Dewease, Danny Dietrich and Anthony Macri among others.

Larson and Macri were All Stars winners at Williams Grove last season and Macri is fresh off of a Williams Grove win on April 15.

Adult general admission for the April 22 racing program is set at $25 with students ages 13-20 admitted for just $10.

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

Hinnershitz Legacy Honored Friday At Williams Grove

4/17/22

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Adult general admission for the April 22 racing program is set at $25 with students ages 13-20 admitted for just $10.

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

Anthony Macri outruns the field and Mother Nature to earn Record-Setting Feature Event at Port Royal

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway – PORT ROYAL, Penn. (April 17, 2022) – On a blistering fast racetrack, Anthony Macri picked up his second Weikert's Livestock 410 Sprint Car feature event of the season over Dylan Cisney and Steve Buckwalter on York County Racing Club Night.

The win was worth $4000 and came by a margin of 1.146 seconds after starting eighth. Macri also set the new 25-lap track record along the way with the feature events being completed in just Seven minutes and 17 seconds. Brock Zearfoss had been the record holder since August 26, 2017 when he won with a time of 7:22.

"I'm a little out of breath after that one," said Macri. "When we showed up here tonight I didn't expect the track we had here tonight, but hats off to the facility and the track crew for giving us a great track and moving things along."

With rain in the forecast, the track hosted three divisions to the Juniata County oval and were able to complete a total of eight heat races, a non stop feature and warm ups in just under one hour and 45 minutes. There were no cautions throughout the entire night, but it still wasn't enough to beat Mother Nature completely as the Super Late Model and Limited Late Model features had to the rescheduled after rain hit the Speedway minutes after the 410 Sprint Car feature was completed.

But Macri and company did their best to keep the show moving along prior to the showers. Royersford, Pa's Buckwalter and Port Royal's own, Cisney, lined up from the front row for the A-main event and it was Cisney getting the jump off the top of the Speedway to lead the opening circuit

By the completion of lap five, Macri had already made his way to the to-five and within two laps Cisney had already caught the tail end of the field and held a 1.665 second advantage over Buckwalter.

With 15 laps remaining, Buckwalter had cut the deficit more than half and only trailed by .669 of a second. Meanwhile, Macri was hot on pursuit as he moved into fourth on lap 11 and third with 12 laps remaining.

One lap later the Concrete Kid used a slider in turn's one and two on Buckwalter to take over the runner-up position. Macri tried a slider in turn's one and two with eight laps to go, but Cisney was able to power back by down the backstretch to reclaim the lead. The duo raced within shouting distance of each other over the next four circuits and Macri used every inch of the track to track down the hometown kid.

Coming to three laps to go Macri banged his right rear off the exit of turn four trying to grab the lead , but he was able to regaan his composure as the two drag raced to the start-finish line with no issues to get the two-to-go sign at the flagstand. Macri was able to use the momentum to slide under Cisney entering turn one and he avoided contact with the lapped car of Kody Lehman to exit turn two with the lead for good.

Buckwalter settled for a podium position over AJ Flick and Jeff Halligan. TJ Stutts, Gerard McIntyre Jr., Justin Whittall, Lucas Wolfe and Blane Heimbach made up the rest of the top ten.

Macri was also the night's Valley Supply Hard Charger, earning $500 for his efforts, while 14th-place finisher Troy Wagaman Jr. earned the $1000 J&S Classics Warrior Award via random draw.

"It doesn't really matter what kind of track we have, this car has speed and we're really good right now," said Macri. "We just have to keep doing what we're doing and hopefully next weekend we can walk out here with $10,000 more in our pocket for the Keith Kauffman Classic against the All Stars."

For Cisney, it was just a matter of being too good to start the event and not having enough left to hold on.

"We just took off too good and burned the tires off there at the end," said Cisney. "We'll take it as we have been struggling all season, but to leave with a second shows we're on the right rack and we'll keep moving forward."

410 Sprint Car Feature Finish, 25 Laps: 1. Anthony Macri; 2. Dylan Cisney; 3. Steve Buckwalter; 4. A.J. Flick; 5. Jeff Halligan; 6. T.J. Stutts; 7. Gerard McIntyre; 8. Justin Whittall; 9.

Macri, Danner And Grube Winners In Williams Grove Spring Sprint Special

4/15//22

Mechanicsburg – Over 70 sprint cars took part in the Spring Sprint Special at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night with Anthony Macri, Briggs Danner and Dave Grube coming away the winners of the special event.

Macri led all the way to pocket the $5,500 loot in the 25-lap 410 sprint car main.

Danner meanwhile got the lead on lap six of the USAC East 360 sprint feature to score his first career oval victory.

And Grube too would lead all the way in the 305 sprint main to close out the night.

The start of the 25-lap 410 sprint main was red-flagged when four cars tangled in the first corner.

Connected were the machines of Matt Campbell, Logan McCandless, Matt Bollinger and Kyle Moody.

There were no injured but the field was stopped to allow the scene to be cleared.

The new green saw Macri shoot into the lead over Dylan Cisney with Devon Borden getting by Chad Trout for third on the fourth lap.

The only caution flag of the race appeared on lap six for a spun Jared Esh in the third turn.

Macri pulled away on the restart to pick up the win in dominating fashion.

He took the fourth oval win of his career by 1.675 seconds over Cisney.

Ninth starter Freddie Rahmer got by Borden for third with seven laps to go.

Borden was fourth followed by 11th starer Danny Dietrich.

Sixth through 10th went to Chad Trout, Lucas Wolfe, Steve Buckwalter, Alan Krimes and Brent Shearer.

Heats went to Macri, Cisney and Trout.

Danner started fifth in the 25-lap USAC East main before driving to the win.

Tommy Kunsman Jr. led the first circuit before third-generation driver Mike Thompson got the lead away.

Thompson then held sway until Danner poked his way underneath for the lead in the third turn on lap six.

Danner’s pace was slowed twice after getting command with restarts taking place on laps eight and 11.

Defending series point champion Alex Bright drove into second on lap seven but failed to challenge Danner for the victory, instead crossing the line 1.411 seconds behind at the finish.

Kunsman finished third followed by Thompson and Steve Drevicki.

Heats went to Bright, Drevicki and Kunsman.

Dave Grube wired the field in the 305 sprint main, entering lapped traffic on the eighth tour.

Grube withstood three restarts to pick up the win.

Derek Hauck was second followed by Scott Frack, Austin Reed and 13th starter Ken Duke Jr.

Heats went to Doug Dodson, Tyler Snook and Grube.

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway – PORT ROYAL, PA – (April 13, 2022) York County Racing Club Night at Port Royal Speedway takes place this Saturday, April 16, with a three-division spectacular featuring the Weikert's Livestock 410 Sprint Cars, the Krill Recycling, LLC Super Late Models and the Selinsgrove Ford Limited Late Models. Added to the night's festivities will be a 10-lap $1000 to win Australian Pursuit event for the Super Late Models.

Gates open at 3:00pm, while racing is set to kick off at 6:00pm

GA- $20, Students- $10, Pits- $30

Four-time defending track champion Logan Wagner has found his way to Victorian Signs and Graphics Victory Lane the past two weekends in the Weikert's Livestock 410 Sprint Car division. However, it's still one-time 2022 winner Anthony Macri, sitting on top of the season point standings with a 85-point advantage over Wagner. Mike Wagner (-120), Lucas Wolfe (-150) and Jeff Halligan (-165) round out the rest of the top five.

Gregg Satterlee picked up $10,000 last weekend with a huge victory for the locals over the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series. However, it's been all Colton Flinner this season in Krill Recycling Super Late Model competition as he's scored three consecutive victories in weekly Super Late Model competition. Flinner leads by 90 points over Gary Stuhler followed by Kyle Lee (-180), Austin Berry (-185) and Mike Lupfer (-185)

In honor of long-time scorer at the Speedway, Glenn Stitt, the series will also take part in a special 10-lap Australian Pursuit event as well. The nostalgic event uses a format in that if a driver is passed at any point on the track, they are eliminated from contention and will head to the pits. The last driver remaining at the completion of 10 laps will be crowned the winner and earn $1000 for his efforts. Second-place will pay $500, third-place will pay $400, fourth will pay $300 and fifth will pay $200. Sixth through tenth will receive $100.

The top ten finishers of the night's 25-lap feature event in the division will be eligible to compete for the added cash and we will invert the field completely and start in single-file.

Finally, the Selinsgrove Ford Limited Late Models will take to the track for their third event of the 2022 season and it will be Devin Hart entering the night as the most recent winner in the division. Hart sits second in the season point standings behind the division's only other winner this season, Dillan Stake, by a margin of 15 points. Todd Snook (-45), Taylor Farling (-60) and Shawn Shoemaker (-70) make up the rest of the top five.

Port Royal Speedway to Hold Special $1000 to Win Australian Pursuit Event in Honor of Glenn Stitt

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway – PORT ROYAL, PA – (April 12, 2022) Over the past decade, the Port Royal Speedway has rapidly grown to become one of the crown jewel racetracks in the entire country with jam-packed diverse schedules featuring the best dirt track racing has to offer.

With six consecutive promoter of the year awards courtesy of the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame being housed in the Speedway office, it would be easy to credit that meteoric rise to those working at the Speedway week in and week out and the promotional team the Speedway has established today.

However, the tradition that is Port Royal Speedway and the Speed Palace began long ago in September of 1938. Besides a four-year break in action during World War II from 1941-1945, the Speedway has continuously run weekly events for the Port Royal faithful and there have been many of names and faces over the years who have contibuted to the history and legacy of the track to get us where we are today.

Without their efforts and love of the track, the community and the sport, we are well aware that we would not be where we are today as an establishment. As the old saying goes, you've got to understand where you've been and how you got there, to ever know where it is that you're going.

One of those individuals was Glenn Stitt. Stitt served as the head scorer at the Port Royal Speedway from 1965-1985. An unheralded, yet important, position among many employees at the track, he pencil scored the first Tuscarora 50 ever held in 1968.

He also served as a car owner in the 60's and his son Ken Stitt drove in the late model division in the 70's and a year in sprint cars. He also had two grandsons (Ken Jr. and Steve) who drove Thunder Cars, Pro Stocks and late models over the years.

Upon moving away from the area, Glenn presented the Speedway with a detailed history of all racing events from past years that we were able to preserve and document. Because of his efforts and passion, future generations of race fans to come will have a road map to the past and an understanding of how it is that we got this far.

Truly a pioneer at the Speed Palace, his impact still resonates today with deep family roots and a passion for dirt track racing and the Port Royal Speedway. Glenn passed away at the age of 92 in December of 2020.

In an effort to recognize his contribution to our history and our future, the Speedway has joined forces with his family to host a special 10-lap Australian Pursuit event for the Krill Recyling Super Late Models this coming Saturday, April 16.

The old-time nostalgic event uses a format in that if a driver is passed at any point on the track, they are eliminated from contention and will head to the pits. The last driver remaining at the completion of 10 laps will be crowned the winner and earn $1000 for his eofforts. Second-place will pay $500, third-place will pay $400, fourth will pay $300 and fifth will pay $200. Sixth through tenth will receive $100.

The top ten finishers of the night's 25-lap feature event in the division will be eligible to compete for the added cash and we will invert the field completely and start in single-file.

While the family is unsure if Glenn ever scored an Australian Pursuit event during his time at the Speedway, they noted the event was among his favorites as a fan and they ran pursuit races in quarter midgets in the 50's and mid 60's that he scored.

We encourage all fans to stick around after the late model feature event to witness this special event and we look forward to honoring the memory and legacy of Glenn Stitt!

CALIFORNIA INVADER BUDDY KOFOID WINS THE WELDON STERNER MEMORIAL; Hayden Miller Scores Second Career Victory

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Saturday, April 16, 2022 (7PM) Golf Cart Services Night: 410 Sprints + 358 Sprints

Saturday, April 23, 2022 (7:30PM) Gene Latta Ford “Wheel of Fortune” Night: 410 Sprints, Central PA Legends + 358 Late Models

Saturday, April 30, 2022 (7:30PM) 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints + Penn-Mar Vintage (York County Racing Club Night)

Abbottstown, PA (April 9, 2022) – Buddy Kofoid has been running the Central PA circuit early this season and the California driver made his first win in Central PA a big one. Kofoid’s first win was Saturday’s $6,900 Weldon Sterner Memorial.

On his big win, Kofoid shared in victory lane, :It’s good to be here for sure. First Central PA win is pretty badass.”

If you were paying attention to Kofoid’s car during the 35-lap feature you might have noticed something was off, “Our motor wasn’t running up to where it should be and we still got it done.”

Kofoid lined up second for the feature but fell back to third on the start. Buddy worked his way back up to second on lap 9 and took the lead on lap 11, “I felt our speed was there all race and it was just hard to get going. I’m glad there wasn’t any yellows otherwise we probably wouldn’t have won.”

Alan Krimes started on the pole of the 35-lap 19th Annual Weldon Sterner Memorial with Buddy Kofoid lined up second. Krimes led the field into turn 1 with third place starting Danny Dietrich up to second and Kofoid in third.

Dietrich went to the top and took the lead at the line on lap 2. After falling back to third on the start Kofoid was battling Krimes for second.

Freddie Rahmer got by Dylan Norris for fourth but the red flag came out on lap 3 negating the pass. The red was for Jim Siegel who flipped in turn 2.

Danny Dietrich, Krimes, Kofoid, Norris and Freddie Rahmer were the top five for the restart.

Norris was all over Kofoid's bumper on the restart. Rahmer was also in the mix trying to get back by Norris. All three drivers held their positions.

Rahmer had Norris by a nose at the line for fourth on lap 5. Kofoid slid Krimes for second in turns 3 and 4 and took the spot on lap 9.

The tail end of the field loomed ahead of Dietrich on lap 10. Kofoid tried a slider on Danny in turns 1 and 2 as they got into lapped traffic but Dietrich held the position. Kofoid took the lead on lap 11 by half a car length at the line.

Kofoid put a lapped car between him and Danny and started to pull away. The leaders worked their way through heavy lapped traffic with 20 laps to go. Danny looked to the inside of Kofoid in turn 3 to try and take the lead back but Kofoid blocked the bottom.

Danny took another look on the inside of turn 3 on lap 19 but Kofoid held the spot.

Rahmer got under Danny in turn 1 to take second and took the spot on lap 21. Rahmer reeled in Kofoid quickly as two lapped cars battled in front of them. Kofoid cleared the lapped cars and pulled away.

Justin Peck was charging through the field and was up to 4th from his 12th starting spot.

Rahmer, Danny and Peck were running together and trying to reel in Kofoid as the laps wound down.

Kofoid scored his first win in Central PA, earning him $6,900, by crossing the line 1.035 seconds ahead of Rahmer. Dietrich finished third and the night’s hard charger, Justin Peck was fourth. Chase Dietz completed the top five.

Danny Dietrich set quick time over the 43-car field with a lap of 13.767 seconds. The 410 sprint heat races were won by Alan Krimes, Buddy Kofoid, Mark Smith and Freddie Rahmer.

Hayden Miller Scores Second Career Victory

Hayden Miller and Justin Foster shared the front row for the 20-lap feature on Saturday night. Miller led the field into turn 1 but Foster was right there using a higher line.

Foster had the advantage at the line by a nose to lead the first lap. The yellow flag flew on lap 1 when Tim Stallings got turned around in turn 4.

Foster led Miller, Jayden Wolf, David Holbrook and Nash Ely to the cone for the single file restart.

Wolf looked to the outside of Miller through turns 1 and 2 and took second as they raced down the back stretch.

Wolf then went to work closing in on Foster for the lead. Wolf was getting a good run coming out of turn 2 and the two were nearly nose to tail on lap 5.

Wolf and Foster brought out the caution flag on lap 8 as they raced into turn 1 and made contact. Both drivers rejoined the field for the restart.

Miller inherited the lead and led Holbrook, Ely, Cody Fletcher and Brett Wanner on the restart.

Lapped traffic loomed ahead of Miller with two laps to go. Holbrook was closing in on Miller with the white flag waving and looked to the inside of Hayden in the turns, but could not make the pass.

Miller won his second feature at Lincoln almost exactly a year after his first win (4/10/21) at the track by .498 seconds over Holbrook. Ely finished third and Fletcher crossed the line fourth. Wanner completed the top five.

The 358 sprint car heat race winners were Brett Wanner, Justin Foster, Jayden Wolf and Cody Fletcher.

Next Saturday, April 16, Lincoln Speedway is back in action with Golf Cart Services for 410 Sprint Cars and the 358 Sprint Cars. Racing starts at 7PM with pit gates opening at 4:30PM and grandstand gates opening at 5PM. The open practice is open to divisions on the 2022 Lincoln Speedway schedule.

Williams Grove All Stars Tommy Classic Coming In Two Weeks!

April 22 race kicks off 2022 Hoosier Diamond Series with 6K payday

4/10/22

Mechanicsburg – The first big event of many this season at Williams Grove Speedway for the Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint cars is coming up in two weeks, on Friday night April 22 when the All Stars Circuit of Champions Sprints invade for the Tommy Hinnershitz Classic.

The annual Tommy Classic will be the first race of the season in the Hoosier Diamond Series at Williams Grove, paying $6,000 to win the 30-lap affair.

Larson also copped the classic in 2020.

The late Craig Keel won the first Tommy race in 2007.

No one has won more Tommy Classic races than local Lance Dewease who is a three-time victor.

The All Stars will be heralded into Williams Grove by defending series titlist Tyler Courtney of Indianapolis, Ind.

Others expected to invade include Cory Eliason, Hunter Schuerenberg, Justin Peck, Zeb Wise, Kyle Reinhardt and more.

Peck already has an unsanctioned win at the track this season after taking the Williams Grove season opener on March 18.

The only All Star to ever win the event was Aaron Reutzel in 2019.

The 2022 Tommy Hinnershitz Classic will be a sprints only program, getting underway at 7:30 pm on April 22.

Logan Wagner Bags $5000 Open Wheel Madness 410 Sprint Car Victory, Jason Shultz and Doug Dodson Score Wins as Well

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway– PORT ROYAL, Penn. (April 10, 2022) –It was Logan Wagner and Anthony Macri crossing the start/finish line at Port Royal Speedway one-two in Weikert's Livestock 410 Sprint Car competition for the second consecutive weekend as Wagner picked up his 13th career victory at the Speedway Saturday evening.

The win was worth $5000 in total as part of the Speedway's Open Wheel Madness promotion and vaulted Wagner to second in the series point standings in his drive for five consecutive championships at the track.

"It takes everyone to make this deal happen and I can't thank everyone enough for making this possible," said Wagner. "I think if we do our part, this team will be sitting in victory lane a few more times this season and I'm excited to keep going."

Michael Walter II and weekend invader Parker Price-Miller lined up on the front row for the 25-lap A-main and it was Walter holding off the All Star Circuit of Champions regular to lead the opening circuit.

Wagner started third on the grid and after falling back to fourth on the first lap of the event, the Harrisonville, Pa. ace settled back into a podium spot on lap two. Macri, who started ninth on the grid, moved into sixth on lap three and cracked the top five one lap later.

Walter held more than a 1.3 second advantage by then, but his lead was cut in half with 18 to go after he got into the outside guardrail in turn's three and four. One lap later Wagner slid under Price-Miller in turn's three and four to take the runner-up position at the line and he set his sights on Walter.

Walter approached the back of the field two laps later and was struggling to dispatch of Jordan Givler. This allowed Wagner to close in on both racers and Wagner split the pair exiting turn two to take the lead down the backstretch. Walter and Wagner made brief contact racing side by side approaching turn three, but both drivers went unscathed as Wagner held the lead with 15 to go.

"Hats off to the 33 team as they ran a great race early and he made me work for it," said Wagner. "I felt myself get up into a car there and I wasn't sure if it was him, but we were just racing hard and both wanting the same spot."

Two laps later the caution flew for the No. 67 of Justin Whittall, who came to a stop on the inside guardrail of the frontstretch. The yellow flag wiped out a 1.99 second advantage for Wagner over Walter and put Macri right on the bumper of the runner-up for a restart.

After a caution for debris thwarted his first attempt at moving into the second position, Macri quickly overtook Walter for the runner-up position on the restart on the restart. With 10 laps remaining Wagner had already built up a 1.709 second advantage on the field, but five laps later Macri had cut the advantage to .984 as lapped traffic once again came into play.

Macri closed to the tail tank of Wagner coming to the start/finish line and it looked like the pair were set to duke it out again, but a red flag for a flipping TJ Stutts on the frontstretch halted racing action. Stutts walked away from the incident unharmed.

Wagner controlled the restart and any hope of a victory for Macri vanished as Wagner pulled away with ease. He went on to take the checkered flag by a margin of 1.725 seconds over Macri, Walter II, Jeff Halligan and Price-Miller. Zeb Wise, Gerard McIntyre Jr., Mike Wagner, Lucas Wolfe and Dylan Cisney rounded out the top 10.

Kassidy Kreitz, making only her second career 410 Sprint Car start, earned the $500 Valley Supply Hard Charger after going 24th to 14th on the night and 18th-place finisher Kody Lehman earned the J&S Classics $1000 Warrior Award via a random draw.

"I can't say enough about our Zemco team and this just proves that we have a really good racecar and we're ready for some of these bigger shows that are coming up," said Wagner. "It was a lot of fun out there and it was a breath of fresh air to cross the line in front of the 39 car."

For the second consecutive season, Jason Shultz piloted the Ritter Racing No. 35 360 Sprint Car to an April victory with the United Racing Club at Port Royal Speedway.

The win was worth $2000 and came over a pair of hard charging competitors in Ryan Smith and Anthony Macri. The win marks 12 consecutive URC triumphs at the Speedway by drivers who also regularly compete in the 410 Sprint Car division as well.

Dallas Schott and Shultz led the field to the green flag and while the two battled for the top spot, it was actually third-place starter Macri taking the top spot and credited with leading the opening circuit.

Shultz went to the bottom in turn's one and two and the pair swapped the lead again in turn's three and four. Shultz was the leader coming to the flag stand on lap two.

Andy Best got turned around in turn's one and two to halt racing action with a caution with 20 laps to go. Shultz held off Macri on the restart, while seventh-place starter Smith moved into a podium spot.

Smith and Macri battled hard over the next two laps for the runner-up position, while ninth-place starter Pat Cannon cracked the top five with 15 laps to go.

Shultz approached lapped traffic with 14 laps remaining and with 10 laps to go, both Macri and Smith had closed to piut the top three under a blanket down the backstretch.

Macri gave it his best effort with six laps to go as he got by Shultz for the lead in turn's three and four, but Shultz again held off the challenge to lead the lap. The move also allowed Smith to take the runner-up position with five laps remaining.

Smith stayed close to Shultz over the final four laps and he stayed close enough to make Shultz work for it, but Shultz was able to hold on for the victory over Smith and Macri. Schott and Cannon rounded out the top five followed by Derek Locke, Briggs Danner, Derek Hauck, Ryan Stillwagon and Adam Carberry in the top 10.

"I didn't see those guys too much, but they definitely let me know they were there," said Shultz. "I felt like the rabbit and the dogs were chasing me. I was just running scared out there and to win like this is pretty special for me."

For Smith, it was just a matter of too little, too late and he was disappointed with the runner-up finish.

"It seems like this car here is really good no matter where we go," said Smith. "To come up second isn't bad, but we just ran out of time and needed to start up a little higher."

Doug Dodson scored his first career Port Royal Speedway victory during the 2022 season debut for the PennsValley MeatMarket PA Sprint Series 305 Sprint Cars Saturday night in dominating fashion over Domenic Melair and Kenny Heffner.

Heffner and Ian Detweiler led the field to the green flag and it was Heffner getting the early advantage. Dodson, who started fourth, moved into the runner-up position on the opening lap.

11th-place starter and defending track champion, Dave Grube, moved into seventh at the completion of lap one and was up to fourth by lap four. Meanwhile, 2020 track champion Garret Bard had advanced from 16th to eighth as well.

A two car incident in turn two brought the caution out with 16 laps remaining. Dodson tried the bottom at both ends of the Speedway on the restart, but Heffner held off all advances. The caution flew a second time for a car stopped in turn two.

Heffner again held off Dodson's advances on the restart, but it only took one more lap for Dodson to take the top spot as he used a move through the middle of turn's three and four to inch ahead coming to the line with 14 to go. Three laps later Grube's march to the front ended when he came to a slow at the turn four exit.

From there it was all Dodson as he held off Domenic Melair, Heffner, Bard and Mike Alleman. Austin Reed, Tyler Snook, Kruz Kepner, Ken Duke and Logan Spahr rounded out the top 10.

"Once I got out front and could run the line I wanted, I knew I could keep my momentum and be good," said Dodson. "To be really good and to get the win here is a dream come true and it was a blast out there."

Abbottstown, PA (April 2, 2022) – Danny Dietrich became the first repeat winner of the 2022 season on Saturday after scoring his second win in a row. Dietrich lined up tenth for the start of the 30-lap feature, “They dropped the green and it was go time. I just ran where the moisture was.” Dietrich made his way to the front of the field in just five laps, “Its just so fun to drive this car.”

Once Dietrich took the lead there was no looking back, “Hopefully we made the feature exciting there at the beginning. After that I just felt like we were really good and we didn’t need any cautions.” Dietrich had to hold off the field on two restarts, both late in the race, but he did so in impressive fashion to score his 57th career win at the track.

Robbie Kendall and Niki Young were on the front row for the drop of the green flag. Kendall led the field into turn 1 with Tim Wagaman and Mark Smith getting by Young for second and third.

Danny Dietrich started the 30-lap feature 10th and was battling brother Billy Dietrich for fifth on lap 2. Danny took the spot and got by Smith and Young on lap 3 for third. Dietrich’s next conquest was Wagaman and he got by him for second coming out of turn 2 on lap 4. Dietrich made quick work of Kendall and took the lead on lap 5.

Billy and Wagaman were battling for third when the caution came out on lap 7 for Tyler Ross who was off the pace in turn 1.

Danny led Kendall, Wagaman, Billy and Young to the cone for the single file restart.

Billy got by Wagaman for third as they raced down the back stretch on the restart. Wagaman stayed close and was working the top line to try and take the spot back.

Two-time track champion, Freddie Rahmer, was on the move. Rahmer was working on Young to get into the top 5 from his ninth starting spot. Rahmer took the position on lap 11.

Out front Danny was running the high line around the 3/8-mile oval as he caught the tail end of the field. With most of the lapped cars running the bottom Danny made quick work of putting cars between him and Kendall.

Billy closed in on Kendall for second as they caught lapped traffic and took the spot on lap 18, putting the Dietrich brothers running first and second.

Wagaman caught Kendall for third and took the spot. That left Kendall to fend off Rahmer who was looking to take fourth.

Dylan Norris brought out the caution on lap 23 when he spun out in turn 4.

The top five for the restart were Danny, Billy, Wagaman, Kendall and Rahmer. Wagaman got under Billy in turns 1 and 2 for second on the restart. Kendall, Rahmer and Young ran three-wide for fourth with Young taking the spot.

After doing a 360 spin and initially continuing on, Kendall brought out the caution on lap 25 when he fell off the pace.

Danny, Wagaman, Billy, Young and Rahmer were the top five for the restart.

The leaders opted for the bottom in turns 1 and 2 on the restart. Freddie got by Young for fourth. Rahmer then reeled in Billy and took third coming out of turn 4 on lap 27.

Danny got to the checkered 1.482 seconds ahead of Wagaman. Rahmer crossed the line third and Billy finished fourth. Young completed the top five.

The 410 heat races went to Robbie Kendall, Tim Glatfelter, Aaron Bollinger, Mark Smith and Danny Dietrich.

Cameron Smith Adds His Name to the Lincoln Record Books With First Career Win

Rookie of the year contender, Cameron Smith, shared the front row with Brett Wanner for the start of the 20-lap feature on Saturday. Smith had the advantage going into turn 1 and pulled away from Wanner as they raced down the back stretch.

Steve Owings got by Wanner at the line for second on lap 1. Cody Fletcher who started tenth was up to fourth and had his eyes set on third.

Owings was closing in on Smith for the lead. Smith then went to work using the bottom line around the track to pull away from Owings.

Smith had lapped traffic to contend with at the half way point of the race but just as he caught the tail end of the field, the caution came out on lap 10 when Kyle Keen came to a stop on the back stretch.

Smith led Owings, Wanner, Fletcher and Matt Findley to the cone for the restart. Smith got through turns 1 and 2 using the bottom and maintained the lead. Owings tried a higher line, but couldn’t make the pass.

The yellow flag flew again on lap 11 when Justin Foster and Hayden Miller got together on the front stretch just past the flag stand.

The field saw another caution on the restart when Cody Fletcher, who was running fourth at the time, got into the wall in turn 1.

The top five for the restart were Smith, Owings, Wanner, Findley and Jeff Rohrbaugh. Owings had a slightly better restart but still could not close in to make the pass on Smith.

Rohrbaugh got by Findley for fourth and Kody Hartlaub followed to find himself inside the top five.

Owings worked the middle of turns 3 and 4 and made some ground on catching Smith. Smith had just half a car length lead at the line on lap 16. The following lap Smith was back in command and Owings fell back yet again.

Smith scored his first career 358 feature win 1.042 seconds over defending track champion, Steve Owings. Wanner crossed the line third and Rohrbaugh was fourth. Hartlaub held on to finish fifth.

The 358 sprint car heat races went to Justin Foster, Frankie Herr, Steve Owings and Cameron Smith.

Next Saturday, April 9, Lincoln Speedway is back in action with 19th Annual Weldon Sterner Memorial and Spring Championship for the 410 Sprint Cars and the 358 Sprint Cars.

Hot lap/qualifying groups for the shows will be established and seeded equally based on each entered drivers season earning’s average to date.

And all cars in a group will face off against the same opponents in their respective heat races.

An invert of the driver’s times after hot laps will be used to set the heat starting grids.

And then the top two or three heat finishers, based on the total number of heats contested, will be placed into the front starting spots of the night’s main event again handicapped onto the grid based on each driver’s financial earning’s average to date.

Locke Embarks On New Williams Grove 358 Sprint Season Friday Night

Will the streak continue for the two-time, defending track champion?

4/3/22

Mechanicsburg – When the season for the HJ Towing & Recovery 358 sprints begins this Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway, its fair to say that a lot of eyes will be on just one driver, Derek Locke.

True, the Carlisle native is the two-time and defending track champion in the division.

And its also true that Locke never scored a 358 sprint win at Williams Grove Speedway until mid-way through the 2020 season before running his current career total up to 11.

But neither of those is the reason fans, teams and other drivers will have their sights set on third-generation driver Locke.

What they’ll be watching to see is if the 37-year old pilot can keep his remarkable, unrelenting Williams Grove win streak alive in the 20-lap main event.

If he can pull off the season lidlifter for the division on Friday night, Locke will have run his current string of wins up to 10 in a row.

No. 77 driver Locke only scored at the track for the first time in June of 2020 but then starting on September 25 of that year, the streak began.

Next came a sweep of the entire 2021 season of action, an unparalleled accomplishment.

Wins came on April 16, April 23, May 21, June 25, July 30 when he scored two in one night, September 3 and finally on September 24.

So, can he sweep another season at the Grove in 2022?

“I don’t think it can be reproduced,” says Locke.

“Everything went our way last year.”

“It takes a good setup, good equipment, a crew that is very detailed and a lot of luck to sweep a season,” he says of his run last year before offering his thoughts on the fate that awaits his efforts in the weeks ahead.

“We have been racing long enough to know that racing luck is quite bipolar.”

Locke and his team fully intend to race the full 358 sprint schedule at Williams Grove this season but they also plan on entering the URC 360 shows that the track offers at well in 2022.

Derek Locke views Tyler Brehm, Zach Newlin, Frankie Herr, Brett Wanner and Steve Owings as prime contenders to dethrone him when action gets underway Friday night at 7:30.

 

 

Logan Wagner Rebounds From Tough Weekend to Earn Victory on Checkered Flag Fan Club Night. Colton Flinner and Dillan Stake Earn Late Model Wins

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway – PORT ROYAL, PA – (April 3, 2022) Logan Wagner capitalized on a front-row starting spot to pick up his first Weikert's Livestock 410 Sprint Car victory of the season at the Port Royal Speedway Saturday evening.

The win was worth $4000 and was a welcome sight for the four-time defending champion at the Speedway after last weekend saw him get upside down and and credited with a DNF.

"Hats off to my Zemco crew. We go from wrecking last week to being here in victory lane this week," said Wagner. "Thanks to all my fans and all those who boo me. You're all making noise and that's what this sport is about."

Wagner and his father, Mike Wagner, lined up on the front tow for the feature and it was the elder Wagner getting sideways and into the wall to bring out the caution on lap one. He was able to avoid contact with any other drivers and rejoined the field after changing a tire.

Wagner's misfortune was Justin Whittall's delight as he gained the outside front-row starting spot as a result of the caution and it was him leading lap one after a return to racing. Whittall jumped out to a lead of more then 1.2 seconds by lap five, but racing action was again halted for a car stopped in turn four with 20 to go.

Logan Wagner tried a slider on Whittall entering turn one of the restart, but couldn't make it work. He tried again entering turn three, but Whittall was too fast off the top of the Speedway and was able to again lead the lap.

Six laps later, with Whittall now approaching the tail end of the field, Wagner was able to pounce. He regained the top spot and and used the lapped cars to his advantage to pull away from Whittall with ease.

"Justin was running a great race and he stayed up there longer than I expected," said Wagner. "I kind of was waiting for him to fall off, but he gave me everything he had and it was great racing."

Meanwhile, it was ninth-place starter Anthony Macri putting on a show for the fans. Macri was lurking just inside the top five near the halfway mark and by lap 20 he was able to get by Lucas Wolfe for the bronze spot on the podium. He then got by Whittall for the runner-up spot, but by then Wagner had built up too much of a lead.

At the completion of the 25-lap event, it was Wagner over Macri and Wolfe by a margin of 3.135 seconds. Whittall and Jeff Halligan rounded out the top five. Zeb Wise, Blane Heimbach, AJ Flick, Jared Esh and Justin Peck completed the top ten.

Peck earned the $500 Valley Supply Hard Charger award after starting 18th, while 24th-place finisher Tyler Bear earned the J&S Classics $1000 Warrior Award via a random draw.

"I kind of anticipated the track might slick off a bit, but it stayed good for us and it was a great night," said Wagner. "Everything just came together for us and we were able to make it work tonight."

Following a week where Wagner and Macri made headlines on social media after getting together on the track, Macri believed it was meant to be to see them finish 1-2 this weekend.

"The car kept getting better as the race went on, but starting ninth you've got to get to the front quick to win," said Macri. "I think we'll see the Zemco car and us up front a lot this season and to run second to them is no slouch. He's tough to beat and it's been a good start to to 2022 for us."

410 Sprint Car Results-1- Logan Wagner, 2. Anthony Macri, 3. Lucas Wolfe, 4. Justin Whittall, 5. Jeff Halligan, 6. Zeb Wise, 7. Blane Heimbach, 8. AJ Flick, 9. Jared Esh, 10. Justin Peck, 11.

Colton Flinner earned his third consecutive win at the Port Royal Speedway to start the season and earned $3000 as a result of the triumph. The win not only continued what has been a torrid start to the season for the driver, but earned him a guaranteed starting spot in next Sunday's Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series River Valley 40 event.

"I really don't know what to say as we've struggled for years here and this has been a wild start to the season," said Flinner. "I feel like I've matured a ton as a driver and we're looking to prove it again next weekend."

Defending track champion Dylan Yoder and Trevor Feathers lined up on the front row for the feature and it was Feathers gaining the point on the opening circuit. The caution flew after the completion of one lap for a spinning Brian Booze.

Flinner was in a hurry to get to the front as after a return to green-flag action, it only took two laps for him to get to the front as he slid Feathers for the lead with 22 laps to go.

From there it was all Flinner by a mile. Behind him, Feathers, Yoder and Gary Stuhler were putting on a three-wide battle for the runner-up spot. Yoder eventually moved into the runner-up position.

Stuhler briefly gained the second position with just under five laps to go, but Yoder was able to capitalize on the lapped cars and his built up speed off the top line to move back into the spot for good with two laps to go.

Flinner worked his way through the lapped cars with ease and he went on to take the checkered flag by a dominating 7.7 second advantage over Yoder and Stuhler. Feathers and Austin Berry rounded out the top five. Ross Robinson earned the $200 Georges Used Cars Hard Charger after advancing from 14th to eighth.

"It feels good to know we are already locked in next weekend, but I'm looking to lock in anyways and make the fans proud next weekend," said Flinner. "We have a lot of confidence in our program right now and I can't wait to try again next week."

For Yoder, it was a solid effort to come home runner-up, but still a disappointment for the defending track champion at the Speedway.

"It was a good start to the year for us, but we'd always like to be better," said Yoder. "We've obviously got a little work to do to catch that 48 right now, but I think we all do the way they are running right now."

Super Late Model Results- 1. Colton Flinner, 2. Dylan Yoder, 3. Gary Stuhler, 4. Trevor Feathers, 5. Austin Berry, 6. Matt Cosner, 7. Logan Zarin, 8. Ross Robinson, 9. Nick Dickson, 10. Kyle Lee, 11.

Dillan Stake picked up the first Selinsgrove Ford Limited Late Model feature event of the season, which was worth an increased $2000 as a result of multiple rainouts from earlier in the year. The win was Stake's fourth career in the division at the Speedway.

Defending track champion Devin Hart lined up on the front row alongside of Taylor Farling and it was Farling getting the early advantage. Farling led the first 11 laps of the event before giving way to fourth-place starter Matt Parks with 13 laps to go.

A caution with 7 laps to go bunched the field together once again and was the opportunity Stake needed to get himself into position for a shot at the victory.

Stake, who started ninth, had been struggling to get by Parks in lapped traffic. However, with clean clean air in front of him he was able to pounce. Parks lead the first two laps following the restart, but with five laps to go Stake and Parks made contact on the exit of the backstretch and allowed Stake to take the lead.

Parks struggled to regain momentum and with two laps to go, Stake had worked his lead already to over 2.0 seconds. Todd Snook, who started 13th, moved inside the podium as well, but Stake was not to be denied as he cruised home to the $2000 victory over Jared Fulkroad, Snook, Hart and Farling.

" Matt Parks and I live literally 15 minutes apart and I gave him all the room there to race for the lead," said Stake. "It wasn't intentional at all and it was just hard nosed racing. I can't explain just how good this car has been since the end of last year."

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY

DUKE AWARDED WIN IN 305 SPRINT CARS WHEN KEPNER COMES UP LIGHT;

ROOKIE VIAL TAKES ROADRUNNER CHECKERS IN FIRST START

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Bryan Bernheisel outdueled his father Jim Bernheisel to capture his second career late model season opener at Selinsgrove Speedway Saturday afternoon in the division’s 25-lap main event.

The $3,000 victory was the 10th of Bernheisel’s career at the track in the Lazer Chassis No. 119. Bernheisel, of Lebanon, scored his other opening day win in 2018, the year he also won his first track championship.

Saturday's race marked the track's 60th late model season opener in its rich history.

Ken Duke of Selinsgrove was awarded the win in the 20-lap PASS/IMCA 305 sprint car feature when Kruz Kepner’s racer came up light on the scales during the post-race inspection.

Rookie Levi Vial of Bloomsburg made his first career start in the roadrunner division and found himself standing in Victory Lane at the conclusion of the division’s 12-lap feature.

Selinsgrove Speedway’s next race is at 6 p.m. Saturday, April 16, featuring the United Late Model Series in the 30-lap Spring Championship. Joining the super late models again will be the PASS/IMCA 305 sprint cars and roadrunners. Gates will open at 4 p.m.

Bryan Bernheisel started on the outside of the front row while his father Jim Bernheisel started on the pole for the super late model feature. Racing out of turn two, B. Bernheisel pulled into the early race lead with his father in tow.

Fourth-place starter Gene Knaub raced a close third with sixth-place starter Jim Yoder quickly advancing to fourth. The race’s first caution flag unfurled on lap nine when Drew Weisser’s car spun in turn two. On the lap 10 restart, B. Bernheisel continued to set the pace as eighth-place starter Hayes Mattern challenged fifth-place starter Jeff Rine for fifth.

Late in the race, a double spin for John Schoch in turn two and Jared Siefert in turn three regrouped the field for another restart. When the race resumed, Mattern powered by Rine for the fifth position.

At the checkered flag, B. Bernheisel was victorious by several car lengths over J. Bernheisel, Knaub, J. Yoder, and Mattern.

Front row starters Drew Young and Tyler Snook brought the 305 sprint car field to the green flag at the start of the main event. Snook powered into the lead with third-place starter Kruz Kepner in pursuit. Two laps later, fifth-place starter Ken Duke passed Young for the third position.

By lap eight, Kepner closed in on Snook in slower traffic. On the 11th circuit, Kepner made a pass by Snook for the lead using the inside lane in turn two. A lap later Snook and Jason Roush made contact and spun in turn three.

With five laps remaining, Kepner maintained a healthy lead over Duke and seventh-place starter Austin Reed. At the checkered flag, Kepner was victorious over Duke. During the post-race inspection, however, Kruz’s car was under the legal weight limit and the win was awarded to Duke followed by Reed, Doug Dodson, Erin Statler, and Scott Frack.

Fourth-place starter Tom Underwood attempted to take the lead at the start of the roadrunner but it was second-place starter Nate Romig who brought the field around to complete the first lap.

Romig and sixth-place starter Keith Bissinger were in a hard-fought battle for the lead through much of the event. At the halfway point, Romig set the pace in front of Bissinger, Underwood, Curtis Lawton and Levi Vial.

A close three-car battle unfolded at the front of the pack when Lawton advanced to third. On the final lap, Bissinger made a move to the inside of Romig to challenge for the lead. When the two cars made contact, Bissinger’s No. 11 turned sideways and barrel rolled into the first turn, collecting Lawton.

Original ninth-place starter Vial inherited the lead with one lap to go and held off Daren Rice for his first career win in his first-ever start on the half-mile track. Matt Ney, Cory Lindenmuth, and Romig completed the top five.

Williams Grove Cancels April 1

4/1/22

Mechanicsburg - With the predicted cold front sweeping through the region and ensuing wind gusts predicted to reach as high as 40 mph into the afternoon, Williams Grove Speedway has decided to cancel tonight's racing program.

While the winds are predicted to subside somewhat by evening, temperatures are expected to drop to near 40-degrees by 9 pm, making the prospect for racing untenable for both fans and drivers alike.

Severe thunderstorms hit the track Thursday evening, more rain showers hit the speedway mid-morning Friday and again during the early afternoon, factoring into the decision.

The speedway also considers the cancellation an effective in the face of asking teams to exhaust their equipment in the undesirable cold temperatures that are expected to prevail.

The track returns to action on Friday night, April 8 at 7:30 pm with the 410 and 358 sprint cars.

 

 

SELINSGROVE 60th LATE MODEL SEASON OPENER THIS SATURDAY

WILL KICK OFF CHASE FOR CHAMPIONSHIP WORTH $5,000!

Start Time Moved Up To 3PM Due To Cool Temps

SELINSGROVE, Pa. -- When Selinsgrove Speedway swings open the gates this Saturday, April 2, at 1 p.m., it will mark the historic 60th season opener for late model stock cars at the famed Snyder County half-mile oval!

Due to the forecast for cool temperatures during the evening hours, speedway officials moved up the starting time to 3 p.m. for this weekend’s race. Joining the Selinsgrove Ford super late models on the racing card will be the Apache Tree Service PASS/IMCA 305 sprint cars and A&A Auto Stores roadrunners.

Celebrating its 76th anniversary this year, Selinsgrove originally opened in 1946 but closed for a brief period from 1960-1962. Upon reopening in 1963, late models and sprint cars became the premier weekly attractions.

It was the late Ed Spencer of Berwick who won the late model race when the track reopened on May 25, 1963.

Danville’s Jeff Rine is a 12-time late model opening day winner at the track, more than any other driver. He has 113 career wins at Selinsgrove, including a single victory last year in the track’s 75th Anniversary race on July 20.

Rine’s track championship in 2021 was the 14th of his career, and he will be gunning for No. 15 starting this Saturday. To highlight the division’s rich history, Selinsgrove Ford posted a huge $5,000 bonus to the driver who wins this year’s championship in the 16-race series! The top five points finishers will also earn bonus money.

Three drivers are tied for second on the list of late model opening day winners; they are Dale Kerstetter, Tom Peck, and Richie Jensen who each have four wins in the first race of the season.

This Saturday’s 25-lap main event will pay a cool $3,000 to win and $300 to start out of a lucrative $15,000 purse! Tow money has been raised to $200 to help late model teams offset rising fuel costs. Grandstand and pit gates will open at 1 p.m.

Gregg Satterlee is the defending super late model opening day winner. He and Rine were two of the division’s seven different winners in as many races! Also taking victories last year at the track were Matt Cosner, Andy Haus, Kyle Knapp (Rookie of the Year), Dan Stone, and Jim Yoder.

Adult general admission is set at just $15. Students (ages 12-17) are $10, with kids 11 and under admitted free general admission. Pit passes for all ages are $30.

Bloomsburg Fair Raceway conducts safety seminar

(BLOOMSBURG, PA. 3-31-22) With the start of racing about to get underway at the Bloomsburg Fair Raceway, track officials recently took the initiative to hold a safety seminar with local fire, EMT and towing personal in an effort for them to be well-prepared in the event of any unfortunate situations that may and do occur during a race event.

Held on Tuesday evening, March 30 inside the Industrial Arts building at the Bloomsburg Fairgrounds and adjacent to the race track, the Bloomsburg Fire Department, headed by chief Scott McBride, had a team assembled along with individuals from local towing groups – all of which are on hand during race nights – and were given an in-depth showing to the safety aspects of race cars including fuel line shutoffs, engine kill switches, driver extricating and even the proper places to cut a roll cage if need be.

“It’s basically knowledge, getting everyone down here hands on looking at the vehicles and knowing what to do,” said McBride.

“It’s like preplanning for a fire or accident. We need to know what to do, where to hit it and when to hit it and how fast. Seconds count just like they do anywhere else and our whole goal of being at the track is driver safety. We’re there for them and we want to be an expert at out craft so that’s why where here to look at the cars and go over them”

Three different type race cars that will be competing at the track where brought in which included Randy Mausteller’s No. 21 Harry’s U-Pull-It ARDC Midget, the No. 92 Selinsgrove Ford Limited-Late Model of Shawn Lawton, both of whom are from Bloomsburg and the No. 25 H & P Construction/Gray Builders Inc., 305 Sprint car driven by Justin Young of Danville.

Each driver went over the different safety aspects of their cars which similarly are equipped safety wise but have distinctive locations for fuel and engine shutoffs and such. Each car also has a specific way for drivers to exit and those details along with several other intricacies where carefully gone over.

“This is so important and it should make the Fair Board and the drivers a little more comfortable and it’s good to get our guys the exposure to them. We want to make sure that everyone is safe and everyone goes home that way,” added McBride.

“Some of our guys have never seen race cars before while some of us have raced in the past or having been with racing teams. This is not like cutting a car going down the road. It’s not a Buick or Ford and anything like that. These are purpose built cars made for high end speeds so they’re a special beast.”

Lawton, who raced at Bloomsburg last season and was the first official car to take a lap when the track opened for testing, was grateful for the opportunity to be part of the safety seminar.

“I feel this is instrumental and something that more tracks should take into consideration. I’m honored they asked me to be a part of this,” Lawton said.

“I’ve been hurt before from a racing accident and knowing that the speedway is taking the safety measures to explain and train the EMT’s and everyone else is an extremely important factor and it makes me feel a lot better as a racer that they are taking my safety and all the racers safety into consideration.”

With a Test and Tune set for Thursday, April 7 in advance of the season opening race one week later on April 14, race director Steve O’Neal also felt that conducting the safety seminar was an important facet of growing the speedway and exhibiting to drivers and everyone the commitment the track has towards everyone’s well-being.

“This is such an important aspect of racing and we have to protect our racers. I’m really happy to see a great turnout of local firefighters, EMT’s and all who attended. It just shows another part of the bright future for the speedway,” O’Neal said.

“Having Randy (Mausteller), Shawn (Lawton) and Justin Young) here to show these guys everything about their cars is great. This is a huge help in familiarizing all the safety personal on the key components of the cars in the event of an accident.”

The Test and Tune will be held from 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm. Pit admission is $25 per person. Pit gates will open starting at 5:00 pm. Grandstands are free to the public.

Thursday, April 14 the 3/8-mile dirt oval will kick off its second season of racing with a twin bill of open cockpit action featuring the Rapid Tire USAC East Coast Sprints and United Racing Club presented by Capitol Renegade Custom Coaches & Trailers winged 360 Sprints. Both features will pay $2000-to-win. Pit gates will open at 4:00 pm and grandstands at 5:00 pm. Racing will commence at 7:00 pm.

DANNY DIETRICH CHARGES TO HIS FIRST WIN OF THE SEASON; Doug Dodson Wires the Field in 305 Sprint Season Opener

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Saturday, April 2, 2022 (7PM) 410 Sprints + 358 Sprints

Saturday, April 9, 2022 (7PM) 19th Annual Weldon Sterner Memorial: Spring Championship $6,900 to win for 410 Sprints (TT) + 358 Sprints

Saturday, April 16, 2022 (7PM) Golf Cart Services Night: 410 Sprints + 358 Sprints

Abbottstown, PA (March 26, 2022) – Going into Saturday night, Danny Dietrich was the only driver to have finished in the top five during the first three races of the season at Lincoln. Dietrich continued his early season success with a $4,000 win on a chilly afternoon on Saturday. Dietrich had nothing but praise for the track surfaces that the track crew has provided early in the season, “We’ve had a good car here. We just need to get rolling. The tracks been phenomenal. This is so much fun to race on a track like this.”

Dietrich lined up tenth for the start of the 30-lap feature and started his charge to the front early. Dietrich was up to fifth by lap 3.

Just four laps after Dietrich took the lead, the caution came out. The yellow flag wouldn’t fly again until one lap remained, lining up the field for a one lap shoot out, “I didn’t want to see any cautions because I knew I was picking lapped cars off pretty good off of 4 here.” Dietrich had All-Star Circuit of Champion driver, Justin Peck behind him for the late race restart, “I know with Justin behind me I got to hit my marks on the restart or he’s going to pull a slide job. He likes to run hard like I do so you can’t just blow in on the top and not expect a slide job so I tried to protect that.” Dietrich held off Peck on the final lap to score his first win of the 2022 season.

Zane Rudisill started on the pole of the 30-lap feature in what was only his second time behind the wheel of a 410 sprint car. Rudisill led the field into turn 1 with Brie Hershey and Jim Siegel in tow. The caution flag waved on lap 1 when Aaron Bollinger found himself sitting backwards in turn 2.

The top five for the restart were Rudisill, Hershey, Siegel, Devon Borden and Austin Bishop. In just one lap Danny Dietrich drove from tenth to seventh and Justin Peck advanced from twelfth to eighth.

Rudisill had a solid restart while Siegel looked to the outside of Hershey in turn 3. Hershey held on to second that time, but lost the spot to Siegel on lap 3 at the line.

Borden was charging to the front of the pack from his sixth place starting spot. He was up to third on lap 5 and second on lap 7.

Rudisill had caught the tail end of the field allowing Borden to close in. Borden made the pass for the lead in turn 2 on lap 10.

Danny Dietrich was also on the move and got by Siegel for third on lap 11 and took second from Rudisill on lap 12.

Danny had knocked Borden’s lead to under one second and took the top spot at the line on lap 16. Borden took the lead back coming out of turn 2 and held on to it down the back stretch. Danny got Borden back coming out of turn 4 to hold and lead the lap.

Dietrich put a lapped car between him and Borden, but Borden caught up to him again to battle for the lead. The yellow flag waved on lap 20 when Borden made contact with a lapped car in turn 2. Borden had been running second and initially stayed out to maintain his position, but was forced to go to the pits with a flat tire.

The top five for the restart were Dietrich, Siegel, Peck, Justin Whittall and Rudisill.

Siegel looked to the bottom of turns 1 and 2 on the restart to try and take the lead but could not complete the pass.

Alan Krimes, who had started 20th, got by Rudisill for fifth and then Whittall for fourth.

Peck was all over Siegel, battling for second as Danny checked out from the rest of the field. Dietrich’s lead was nearly three seconds as the laps wound down.

Peck was still searching for a way around Siegel and was finally successful at the line with two laps to go.

The caution came out with one lap to go when Austin Bishop and Freddie Rahmer got together at the flag stand. Bishop and Rahmer had been running seventh and eighth.

The field lined up for a one lap shoot out behind Dietrich, Peck, Siegel, Krimes and Whittall.

Danny drove through the middle of turns 1 and 2 which was enough to keep Peck at bay. Dietrich crossed the line .525 seconds ahead of Peck. Siegel was third and Krimes charged from 21st to a solid fourth place finish. Whittall completed the top five.

The 410 sprint car heat races went to Austin Bishop, Jim Siegel, TJ Stutts, Zane Rudisill and Danny Dietrich.

Doug Dodson Wires the Field in 305 Sprint Season Opener

Dave Wickham and Johnny Scarborough shared the front row for the start of the 20-lap season opener for the PASS 305 Sprint Car Series. Scarborough and third place starting Doug Dodson drag raced for the lead down the back stretch with Dodson taking over the top spot coming out of turn 4.

Logan Spahr who started sixth was up to fourth on lap 2.

Dodson still held the lead 5 laps in with Scarborough, Kruz Kepner, Spahr and Ken Duke Jr. making up the top five.

Dodson was pulling away from the field while Duke was putting pressure on Spahr for fourth. Kepner was battling Scarborough for second place and took the spot on lap 10 coming out of turn 2. Spahr got by Johnny for third on lap 13. Scarborough pulled off the track into the infield on lap 15.

Dodson dominated the nonstop feature, crossing the finish line 8.505 seconds ahead of Kepner. Spahr finished third and Duke was fourth. Domenic Melair made a last lap pass on Austin Reed to take fifth.

The 305 Sprint Car heat races were won by Doug Dodson, Dylan Smith and Austin Reed.

Next Saturday, April 2, Lincoln Speedway is back in action with 410 Sprint Cars and 358 Sprint Cars. Racing starts at 7PM with pit gates opening at 4:30PM and grandstand gates opening at 5PM. The open practice is open to divisions on the 2022 Lincoln Speedway schedule.

Norris And Eckert Wire For Williams Grove Wins

Teenager Dylan Norris gets first oval victory in sprints

3/25/22

Mechanicsburg – Dylan Norris of Hanover won the first Williams Grove Speedway sprint car feature of his young career on Friday night, wiring the field for a $5,500 payday.

Likewise, Rick Eckert of York wired for the 30-lap, ULMS Late Model Series victory worth $3,500.

Norris started on the pole of the 25-lap 410 sprint car main and was pursued by Chase Dietz and seventh starter Devon Borden.

Borden drove into third on the fourth lap and both he and Dietz had Norris lined up for a challenge on the ninth tour as the trio ran into traffic when a yellow flag for a stopped Brent Shearer broke up the would-be battle.

Borden tried to blister by Dietz on the restart but instead got sideways in an effort not to crash both he and Dietz out of the race in the first turn before losing third to Ryan Smith.

But Borden quickly recovered a half lap later when he got back around Smith before rapidly running down Dietz for second on the 12th lap.

Another caution, again for Shearer, this time on lap 13 slowed the pace and set up a restart.

Norris got away from Borden when action resumed but couldn’t settle into a pace as another yellow, this time for a stopped Parker Price Miller, fell on the field with 11 laps to go.

And then Dietz broke out of third on the restart, putting Kyle Reinhardt into the sport.

Borden hung with Norris for the return to action but never mounted the challenge it seemed he might have been capable of.

With nine laps to go eighth starter Danny Dietrich surged into fourth and seemed headed for better things only to also slow and drop out of the race.

Norris kept a comfortable advantage during the late going and to the finish as Borden slowed suddenly on the final lap, dropping like a rock as the rest of the field raced by.

Reinhardt finished second, 2.616 seconds behind, followed by Smith, Brent Marks and 12th starting opening day winner Justin Peck.

Sixth through 10th went to Anthony Macri, Aaron Bollinger, Freddie Rahmer, Justin Whittall and Steve Buckwalter.

Heats went to Borden, Norris and Reinhardt with Pat Cannon scoring the consolation race.

Dylan Cisney was the PA Dyno Hard Charger.

Rick Eckert drove from the pole to a 12.263 second late model victory over last week’s winner Gregg Satterlee.

Satterlee came to second on the third tour but Eckert would sail unchallenged to the win.

During the last 10 laps of the main event, Gene Knaub, Jason Covert and Jared Miley battled for the third spot with all three pilots finishing in that order.

Sixth through 10th went to Andy Haus, Tyler Emory, Danny Snyder, Colton Flinner and Dave Stamm.

Heats went to Covert and Knaub with Covert setting fast time, posting a lap of 16.919 seconds.

The victory was the ninth of Eckert’s career at the oval.

The Weikert's Livestock 410 Sprint Cars will compete for $4000 to win, while the ULMS Racing Series Late Models will be vying for a $3500 winner's share. The late models will partake in group time trials in warm ups.

Anthony Macri picked up his 12th career Weikert's Livestock 410 Sprint Car victory last weekend over Brent Marks and Gerard McIntyre.

Macri holds a 20-point advantage over Danny Dietrich, followed by Mike Wagner (-25), Justin Peck (-55) and Brent Marks (-70).

Colton Flinner continued his hot start to the 2022 racing season in the Krill Recycling, LLC Super Late Model division as he picked up his second consecutive victory at the Speedway last weekend. The win was his first career ULMS Racing Series sanctioned triumph and he'll be looking to pick up another this weekend as the series returns on Saturday as a result of last Saturday's rainout.

Flinner leads the track point standings by a margin of 65-points over the ageless Gary Stuhler with Mike Lupfer (-105), Kyle Lee (-120) and Trevor Collins (-135) completing the rest of the top five.

Anthony Macri Uses Late Pass To Score Port Royal Sprint Car Victory While Colton Flinner Wins With ULMS Late Models

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Penn. (March 21, 2022)- Anthony Macri used a late race pass on Brent Marks to score the $4000 Weikert's Livestock 410 Sprint Car victory at Port Royal Speedway Sunday evening.

The win was Macri's 12th career triumph at the Juniata County oval and moved him into a tie for 31st on the career win list at the Speedway with Bobby Davis Jr., Bobby Weaver, Marks, Don Kreitz Jr. and Lucas Wolfe.

"I can't thank all my guys enough. They busted their butts all night and every one of them stayed in the shop until 3a.m to be here and ready," said Macri. "I didn't really think we were the best early and I just kind of had to stay with it and keep working with the wing."

Marks and Pat Cannon led the field of 25 Sprint Cars to the green flag, but racing activity was halted before a lap was completed when third-place starter Jeff Halligan got sideways in turn one and collected TJ Stutts, Curt Stroup and Zach Newlin. Newlin got upside down to bring out the red flag, but walked away safely.

When the field went back to green flag action it was Marks jumping out to the early lead with Macri, who started fifth, moving into the runner-up position over Cannon, Gerard McIntyre and Logan Wagner.

Wagner, who started the race from the eighth position, was the car on the move early as he moved into fourth on lap two and advanced to a podium position the following lap. Three laps later though the caution flew for debris.

Marks again pulled away from the field on the restart, but it appeared he'd soon have a challenger in Wagner as the defending four-time champion slid under Macri for the runner-up position exiting out of turn four. However, Macri and Wagner made slight contact, which sent Wagner spinning toward the frontstretch inside guardrail to bring out the caution with 18 laps to go. After a brief stop in the pits, Wagner rejoined the field.

Marks took off on the restart with Macri in tow, while McIntyre was making his presence felt as he got by Cannon for the third spot with eight laps completed. Ninth-place starter Lucas Wolfe moved into the fourth position one lap later as well.

Wagner's night went from bad to worse with 14 laps to go as he was making his way back through the field and made contact with Justin Whittall and got upside down in between turn's one and two. Wagner walked away from the scene unharmed and briefly had an altercation with Macri, who was parked at the entry of turn one as a result of the red flag, to bring the frontstetch fans to a roar.

Following the final restart of the event, it was 17th-place starter Danny Dietrich that was making waves. While the front trio of cars stayed unchanged over the next several laps, Dietrich moved into the top five with 10 laps to go and then got to fourth with eight laps remaining.

With five laps remaining, the leaders were approaching lapped traffic. Macri got a run down the backstretch and slid under Marks entering turn three. He was able to make the move stick and while Marks tried to cross back under him coming to the flagstand, it was Macri in first by a nose with four laps to go.

Marks tried to execute a slide-job on Macri to get the lead back in turn's one and two, but Macri was too strong on the top of the Speedway. From there it was the battle for second that everyone was watching.

McIntyre closed in on Marks and attempted to take the position, but Marks was able to hold him off. Dietrich was closing in on a podium spot as well, but ultimately ran out of laps.

Macri went on to take the checkers by a margin of 1.125 second over Marks followed McIntyre Jr., Dietrich and Wolfe completing the top five. Cannon, AJ Flick, Mike Wagner, Dylan Cisney and weekend invader Scotty Thiel rounded out the top ten.

Dietrich was the night's $500 Valley Supply Hard Charger after gaining 13 positions, while Cisney earned the $1000 J&S Classics Warrior Award via the random draw of the No. 9.

"We definitely didn't have the car to win early in the race, but after that open red we made the right adjustments and it paid off," said Macri. "It's been a good start to the season for us. I joked with the guys that this track might be NASCAR racing with all the laps we'd have on it, but this is the Port Royal everyone loves and the track was great to run on."

For Marks, the second-place finish was a sting after leading most the event.

"I felt like I was good enough to win the race and that open red really allowed everyone to get better," said Marks. "We had a good car and we just kind of fell off there at the end. I was trying to just hold my own and run my race, but overall it just stinks to come up one spot short."

Sprint Car Results- 1.Anthony Macri ($4000), 2. Brent Marks, 3. Gerard McIntyre, 4. Danny Dietrich, 5. Lucas Wolfe, 6. Pat Cannon, 7. AJ Flick, 8. Mike Wagner, 9. Dylan Cisney, 10. Scotty Thiel, 11.

Colton Flinner capitalized on a pole position starting spot to pick up his second consecutive victory at the Port Royal Speedway in the Krill Recycling, LLC Super Late Model division.

The win was worth $3500 and was Flinner's first career ULMS Racing Series sanctioned victory.

"This car is badass and a lot of my friends back home said I only won on Opening Day because there wasn't any competition here," said Flinner. "The car has just been really good and this win means a lot to me."

The start of the 30-lap feature was delayed twice after sixth-place starter Jason Covert got into the outside guardrail in turn one to bring out the caution and then a multi-car wreck occurred at the flagstand on the second attempt..

However, the third time was the charm and it was Flinner and Jacob Hawkins leading them to the start. Flinner jumped out to the advantage, while third-place starter Gregg Satterlee moved into the runner-up position as well. Fifth starter Rick Eckert moved into a podium spot one lap later as well.

Flinner and Satterlee broke away from the rest of the pack and on lap six, Satterlee made his first attempt at the lead as he peeked under the leader in turn's one and two only for Flinner to shut the door on the backstretch.

The two cars raced nose to tail for the next few laps, with Flinner moving from the top to the bottom and Satterlee moving to the top. Lapped traffic reared it's head on lap 10 and the battle for first became a chess match of who could make the best move,

Meanwhile, Michael Norris had gotten by Eckert for a podium position and seventh-place starter Jared Miley was knocking on his door for the spot in fourth.

At the halfway mark, no lapped cars separated the leaders, but Flinner held a 1.2 second advantage on Satterlee. With 12 laps remaining, Flinner approached the lapped car of Kyle Lee exiting turn two and he bobbled slightly, which allowed Satterlee to close rapidly and he pulled alongside of the leader down the backstretch.

However, Flinner threaded the needle between both Lee and Satterlee in turn's three and four to give himself some breathing room again and kept the runner-up at bay.

Miley moved into the third position, but it was all Flinner and Satterlee up front, With six laps to go, lapped traffic proved to be the key as Flinner had opened up more than a 2.0 second advantage over Satterlee, who was struggling to dispatch of the lappers.

From there it was smooth sailing for Flinner as he cruised on to the victory by more than 5.0 seconds over Satterlee, Miley, Norris and Eckert. Gary Stuhler, Tylor Emory, Hawkins and Mike Lupfer rounded out the top ten. Jeff Rine finished 12th to earn the Georges Used Cars $200 Hard Charger after starting 20th.

"I consider Gregg Satterlee to be among one of the best talents regionally and nationally and I appreciate that I get to call him a friend and competitor," said Flinner. "I saw him poke his nose there a few times and I knew I needed to adjust and get going. It means a lot to beat him and hopefully it's not the last time either."

BRENT MARKS SCORES FIRST WIN OF THE SEASON; 358 Sprint Season Opener Goes to Matt Findley

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Saturday, March 26, 2022 (6PM) 410 Sprints + PASS/IMCA 305 Sprints

Saturday, April 7, 2022 (7PM) 19th Annual Weldon Sterner Memorial: Spring Championship $6,900 to win for 410 Sprints (TT) + 358 Sprints

Abbottstown, PA (March 19, 2022) – Brent Marks started off the 2022 season looking to continue the success he saw on the track in 2021. Marks started off the Central PA racing season with a runner-up finish at the Ice Breaker and followed that up with a top 10 finish in week two. With his win on Saturday, Marks finally got the monkey of his chest, “It was great to get our first win of the season.”

Marks lined up ninth for the start of the 30-lap feature and was up to fifth by lap 3 when the second caution of the race came out, “I was a little worried there that at one point in the race that we didn’t have a good enough car to win. This thing just likes long green flag runs.”

For most of the race the cars running in the top five were some of sprint car racing’s heavy hitters, “I felt like we were all pretty even there. You couldn’t make a mistake otherwise that guy was going to capitalize.”

Chase Dietz inherited the lead on a restart after the leader, Riley Emig, spun out early in the feature. Marks worked his way up to second halfway through the race and used the top line around the track to reel in Dietz, “If you could hit the top right you could just carry that momentum enough into turn 1 enough to slide him.” Marks made the pass for the lead with five laps to go, but it wasn’t smooth sailing to victory lane. California-driver, Buddy Kofoid caught Marks as lapped traffic loomed ahead of the leaders with two laps to go. The top three crossed the finish line less than a second apart, with Marks holding on to win ahead of Kofoid and Danny Dietrich.

Two rookie of the year contenders, Michael Millard and Riley Emig, led the field to the drop of green flag for the 30-lap feature.

Millard led the field into turn 1 with Emig in tow. Trey Hivner was running third. Emig came out of turn 4 with the lead and Hivner moved up to second. The first caution of the race came on lap 1 when Austin Bishop ended up sitting sideways in turn 1. Bishop rejoined the field after utilizing the 2-minute work area time in the pits.

Emig, Hivner, Brandon Rahmer, Millard and Chase Dietz were the top five for the early race restart.

Emig went high into turn 1 with Hivner opting for the low line. Emig held onto the race lead.

Dietz got by Millard to move up to fourth and Brent Marks followed sending Millard to sixth.

The yellow flag came out again on lap 3 when Dylan Norris got out of shape in turn 2.

The top five for the restart were Emig, Hivner, Brandon Rahmer, Dietz and Marks.

Dietz took a look to the inside of Rahmer for third and edged by him for the spot at the line on lap 4.

Dietz was reeling in Hivner for second as Emig pulled away from the field. Dietz got by Hivner for second on lap 6.

Dietz went to work on tracking down Emig. The race leader Emig brought out the caution on lap 8 when he spun in turns 3 and 4. Emig collected Aaron Bollinger and Hivner who both were able to rejoin the field.

Dietz inherited the lead with Brandon Rahmer, Marks, Buddy Kofoid and Danny Dietrich making up the top five for the restart.

Marks was all over Rahmer for second with Danny working on Kofoid for fourth. Kofoid took a shot at Marks on lap 12 but the pass didn’t stick. The shot left the door open for Danny to make a move but he couldn’t make the pass until lap 14.

Marks got by Rahmer for second on lap 15 as the leaders were closing in on lapped traffic.

Dietz was committed to running the bottom with Marks opting to ride the high line. Dietz put a lapped car between him and Marks. As the leaders raced through lapped traffic Marks was forced to the bottom.

Marks took a shot at the lead on lap 19 in turns 1 and 2 but the pass wasn’t successful. That left things open for Danny to try a move for second, but before things got too intense, the caution flag came out on lap 20. The yellow was for Millard, who was sitting backwards in turn 1.

Dietz, Marks, Danny, Kofoid and Brandon made up the top five for the restart. Dietz went to the top of turns 1 and 2 on the restart with Marks in tow.

Freddie and Brandon Rahmer battled for fifth with Freddie taking the spot on lap 23 coming out of turn 2. Brandon got the spot back when Freddie jumped the cushion in turns 3 and 4 on the next lap.

Marks slid Dietz for the lead in turns 1 and 2 on lap 25. Dietz slid Marks back and the two raced wheel to wheel at the line with Marks taking the lead by a mere .020 seconds.

Kofoid drove by Danny and then Dietz and was up to second with three laps to go. Lapped traffic loomed ahead of Marks with two laps to go. Marks crossed the line .260 seconds ahead of Kofoid for the win. Danny was right behind them just .469 seconds behind Kofoid. Dietz finished fourth and Brandon held off Freddie by .166 seconds to complete the top five.

Heat race wins went to Michael Millard, Riley Emig, Chad Trout, Brandon Rahmer and Trey Hivner. Kyle Moody won the B-main.

358 Sprint Season Opener Goes to Matt Findley

Matt Findley’s win on Saturday night’s season opener for the 358 sprint cars was his fourth at the track.

Findley shared the front row for the 20-lap feature with rookie of the year contender Kyle Keen to kick off the 2022 season.

Findley took the lead when the green flag dropped with Keen running second and Kody Hartlaub in third. Hartlaub got under Keen for second as they raced into turn 3 and took the spot on the first lap.

Frankie Herr and Chris Frank raced wheel to wheel at the line on lap 3 with Frank taking fourth from Herr.

Hartlaub was reeling in Findley as the half-way point of the race approached and lapped traffic came into play.

Findley got caught up by a slow lapped car momentarily allowing Hartlaub to get close, but Hartlaub ended up getting slowed by the same lapped car allowing Findley to get away.

The yellow flag flew on lap 11 for a collection of cars in turns 3 and 4 that included, Ashley Cappetta, Cody Phillips and Dylan Orwig.

Findley, Hartlaub, Jordan Strickler, Frank and Herr were the top five for the restart.

The leaders opted for the bottom in 1 and 2 on the restart. Findley pulled away with Herr using the top line to get by Frank to take fourth on lap 13. Herr went to work on Strickler for third.

Frank used the bottom to stick with Herr and the two continued to battle for position. Herr completely cleared Frank and went to work on Strickler again. This time Herr got by him, taking third at the line on lap 18.

Lapped traffic was just ahead of the leader with one lap to go but that didn’t deter Findley. Findley got to the checkered flag .956 seconds ahead of Hartlaub. Herr finished third and Frank crossed the line fourth. Strickler completed the top five.

Heat race wins in the 358 sprint division went to Steve Owings, Matt Findley, Chris Frank and Frankie Herr. The B-main was won by Kyle Rohrbaugh.

Next Saturday, March 26, Lincoln Speedway is back in action with 410 Sprint Cars and the PASS/IMCA 305 Sprint Cars. Racing starts at 6PM with pit gates opening at 3:30PM and grandstand gates opening at 4PM. The open practice is open to divisions on the 2022 Lincoln Speedway schedule.

Peck Pounces For Williams Grove Opening Day Sprints Win

Satterlee Survives In Super Late Models

3/18/22

Mechanicsburg – Justin Peck of Monrovia, Indiana, scored the 2022 season opener for sprint cars at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, taking over the lead from Mark Smith on lap nine.

Peck scored $5,500 for his second career payday at the track aboard the Tom Buch No. 13.

In other action, Gregg Satterlee of Rochester Mills pocketed his fourth career oval win in super late model action with the ULMS Racing Series.

The start of the 25-lap 410 sprint car main was red-flagged when Brad Howard catapulted down the backstretch, escaping injury.

The restart saw second starter Scotty Thiel pull pitside, placing Pat Cannon alongside Smith on the front row.

Cannon tried to keep pace with Smith at the front with fifth starter Peck up to third when Anthony Macri laid his car over in the third turn on lap six.

When the cars re-fired, defending track champion Lance Dewease withdrew from the event with a right rear flat while racing in ninth.

Peck muscled by Cannon for second on the restart and set his sights on leader Smith who he quickly ran down as he blasted the cushion.

Smith then soon fell off of the pace and pulled pitside on the ninth tour, handing control to a surging Peck who began to run off with the lead.

A final caution flag regrouped the field with four laps to go when Anthony Macri came up lame, this time in the first turn.

Peck pulled away on the restart to take the win by 1.608 seconds ahead of Cannon, Lucas Wolfe, Dylan Norris and Kyle Reinhardt.

Sixth through 10th went to Freddie Rahmer, Brent Marks, Danny Dietrich, Aaron Bollinger and Steve Buckwalter.

Heats went to Smith, Wolfe, Devon Borden and Skylar Gree with Macri taking the consolation race.

Polesitter Kyle Hardy led the first eight laps of the scheduled 30-lap ULMS super late model main and endured three caution periods and a red flag for a rain delay before breaking out of the lead.

After a 15-minute rain delay, Hardy lined up at the helm ahead of sixth starter Satterlee only to suddenly slow and fall behind as the field crossed to complete the ninth tour.

Satterlee then withstood a pair of restarts as the leader, pulling away each time only to be slowed with 10 laps to go because of another rain shower.

The dampness caused officials to call the race official at that point and declare Satterlee the $3,500 victor.

He took the win by more than two seconds over Rick Eckert, Jason Covert, Gene Knaub and Andy Haus.

Sixth through 10th went to Danny Snyder, Matt Cosner, Kyle Lee, Jared Miley and Tyler Emory.

Heats went to Satterlee, Jared Miley and Hardy.

Fast time was set by Hardy with a lap of 19.608 seconds.

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway – PORT ROYAL, PA – (March 10, 2022) Following mid-week snowfall at the Speedway and with expected low temperatures and likely snow/rain in the forecast, the Port Royal Speedway has made the decision to cancel this weekend's racing event on Saturday, March 12.

With many of our drivers and fans traveling from afar and with the element of the unknown lingering into the upcoming weekend, we feel it is in the best interest of all the parties involved to cancel now instead of chancing an unlikely change of forcecast.

Saturday it'll be the first three-division show of the season as the Weikert's Livestock 410 Sprint Cars, the ULMS Super Late Models and the Selinsgrove Ford Limited Late Models take to the track.

Dewease Scores Win Number 120 at Port Royal in Seventh Career Opening Day Win; Flinner takes Honors for Super Late Models

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway – PORT ROYAL, PA – (March 7, 2022) No driver who has won on Opening Day presented by Packer's Concessions, LLC. at Port Royal Speedway has gone on to win the championship since Todd Shaffer did so in 2008.

It's safe to bet that statistic won't change this season either. Lance Dewease, who has committed to a scaled back 2022 Central Pennsylvania campaign, picked up his seventh career Opening Day victory Sunday evening in front of a jam-packed crowd over Mike Wagner, Justin Peck, Danny Dietrich and Logan Wagner.

For Dewease, the win was worth $5000 and was his 120th career triumph at the Juniata County oval. He now sits only nine wins away from tying Keith Kauffman as the all-time winningest driver at the Speedway.

"It's going to be a fun year and a tough year, but we won't be going for any points championships with this team," said Dewease. "It's good to start the year with a win and I just want to thank these fans for being here. With gas prices rising it can't always be easy, but whether they hate me or like me this sport thrives on the fans and It means a lot to do this in front of them here."

The elder Wagner and Peck led the field of 26 sprint cars to the green-flag and it was Wagner getting the initial jump to lead lap one. 10th-place starter Danny Dietrich was on the move early as he was up to sixth at the completion of the opening circuit as well, while Dewease stayed settled into third

Sixth-place starter Michael Walter II moved into fourth on lap four and one lap later Dietrich cracked the top five. Wagner held a 1.6 second advantage at the moment, but with the veteran approaching lapped traffic quickly, Peck cut the gap to less than half a second on lap eight.

However, it was Dewease who capitalized on the lapped traffic the most. Using his patented low line, he got by Peck on lap nine in turn's three and four and three laps later he used the same move on Wagner exiting turn two to take the top spot. Meanwhile Dietrich was continuing his march forward and was up to fourth.

"Mikes has been one of the best cars rolling around this place the last few years and I was just able to sneak by him there in lapped traffic," said Dewease. "We were able to capitalize and the car was just good enough to get out front and that's what we needed."

The red flag would come out two laps later after Jared Esh got upside down after contact with TJ Stutts in turn one. Esh would walk away from the incident unharmed and the stoppage would be the only caution of the event.

Wagner was no match for Dewease on the restart and with 10 laps to go Dewease held nearly a 1.5 second advantage. However, with five laps remaining Wagner was closing fast on the bottom of the Speedway and was within striking distance of the leader.

Wagner tried a move in turn's one and two with four laps to go, but Dewease gained momentum down the backstretch to pull away again. Wagner tried to regroup and was setting up for a final opportunity with two laps to go, but Dewease was able to clear the lapped car of Skylar Gee coming to the flagstand to pull away.

Dewease took the checkered flag by a margin of .554 seconds over Wagner, Peck, Dietrich and Logan Wagner. Anthony Macri, Jeff Halligan, Hunter Schuerenberg, Dylan Cisney and Justin Whittal completed the top ten.

Freddie Rahmer charged forward from 24th to finish 13th and earned the $500 Valley Supply Hard Charger Award, while 17th-place finisher Brent Marks earned the $1000 J&S Classics Warrior Award via of a random draw.

"We were not very good yesterday in practice and we could not figure out why we were struggling," said Dewease, who participated in a test and tune session the night prior at the track. "Donnie found something wrong with the car last night and from the moment we unloaded today it was like a completely different car."

"We got lucky with the draw and ended up starting third and I was able to run the bottom there at the right time and it really benefitted us. The dirty air in lapped traffic really slowed us up and I knew I needed to protect the bottom there late to hold off Mike. I guess it's just nice to see us old guys up front."

For Wagner, who was searching for his first career Opening Day triumph in his 37th year of competition, he felt he had the best car but lapped traffic was his downfall.

"I caught Lance again and I thought I could pass him, but I just couldn't get by him there late," said Wagner. "I went wherever Lance was not and it worked for us. I should have won this race and I'd rather be in victory lane, but this is a good way to start the year and I'm proud of my guys."

Sprint Car Results: 1. Lance Dewease; 2. Mike Wagner; 3. Justin Peck; 4. Danny Dietrich; 5. Logan Wagner; 6. Anthony Macri; 7. Jeff Halligan; 8. Hunter Schuerenberg; 9. Dylan Cisney; 10. Justin Whittall; 11. Buddy Kofoid; 12. Michael Walter II; 13. Freddie Rahmer; 14. Zach Newlin; 15. Blane Heimbach; 16. Pat Cannon; 17. Brent Marks; 18. Devon Borden; 19. Lucas Wolfe; 20. Chase Dietz; 21. Gerard McIntyre Jr.; 22. Skylar Gee; 23. Tyler Ross; 24. T.J. Stutts; 25. Jared Esh; 26. George Hobaugh.

Colton Flinner broke a two-year stranglehold on Opening Day honors for Trevor Feathers as he scored the win in Krill Recycling, LLC Super Late Model competition over Kyle Hardy and Gary Stuhler.

The win was worth $3000 for Flinner and was his third career victory at the Speedway. Even more special for Flinner, the win was his first opportunity to get his young daughter with him in victory lane at the Speedway.

"This is my daughter and I'm pretty happy to get her to victory lane for the first time at Port Royal," said Flinner. "This car was unbelievable. It's a new car and we made a ton of changes before the feature and it was just unbelievable."

Following a spin for Austin Berry on the initial start, Delaware's Trevor Collins and Virginia's Kyle Hardy led the field of 18 cars to the green flag and it was Hardy getting the initial jump to lead lap one.

Stuhler, who started eighth, was already up to third after one lap while fourth-place starter Kyle Lee was on the move in second.

Hardy hit lapped traffic coming to the flagstand with 16 laps remaining, but the field was slowed for a second time three laps later when Chad Meyers slowed on the frontstretch with flat right-rear tire.

While it looked like Lee might be the benefactor on the restart, it was Flinner and Stuhler who made things work as the two settled into second and third respectively. Flinner appeared poised to take the lead from Hardy as well, but the caution flew again for a spin in turn three to halt his momentum again.

This time it was Stuhler and Feathers who made the restart work to their advantage as Stuhler slid into second briefly, before Feathers used a move on the top side to go from fourth to second.

Stuhler got back by Feathers for the runner-up spot with 11 laps to go, but would lose the spot to Flinner as he was able to regroup to get back into second with 10 laps remaining.

Proving to be a man on a mission, Flinner slid under Hardy one lap later entering turn one and exited turn two with the lead for good. Lapped traffic came into play with four laps remaining, however Flinner would take the checkered flag with relative ease by a margin of 2.954 seconds after 25 laps.

Feathers and Lee rounded out the top-five, while Collins, Mike Lupfer, Jason Schmidt, Kyle Knapp and Berry completed the top ten. Lupfer earned the Georges Used Cars Hard Charger Award after starting 13th.

"We came out for bug day yesterday and didn't get any notes as the cars just were not working right," he said. "We got things working and this is so cool. This is the most badass racetrack in Central Pennsylvania and I'm so proud to start the season with a win."

For Hardy, he led a lot of laps but came up one position short in search of his first career Port Royal win.

"I felt pretty good out there and didn't expect him to pass me," said Hardy. "I just need to stay positive and I think we just needed to stay green with the tires we chose. We just didn't come to life after that yellow, but we'll keep trying to get ourselves a win here soon."

Bloomsburg Fair Raceway forced to drop July 7 race night…suitable replacement date in the works

(BLOOMSBURG, PA. 3-6-22) A slight change in the 2022 schedule of events at the Bloomsburg Fair Raceway has been announced by raceway officials.

The originally planned Thursday, July 7 race night that was to have featured the Late Models in a $3000-to-win main along with the Rapid Tire USAC East Coast Sprints contesting in a $2000-to-win 25-lapper, has been cancelled for that evening.

Due to an unforeseen planning glitch, neither of which was from the track or either race groups, was the reasoning for the withdrawal. However, race and organizational officials are currently working on make-up dates that will best be suitable for all.

Racing action at the 3/8-mile dirt oval will be getting underway in a month’s time with an open test and tune on Thursday, April 7 from 6:00 – 9:00 pm and open to any divisions that are on the 2022 schedule.

A week later, on Thursday, April 14 the first race of the season gets the green flag when the Rapid Tire USAC East Coast Sprints and United Racing Club (URC) presented by Capitol Renegade Custom Coaches & Trailers winged 360 Sprints take to the track for a pair of $2000-to-win main events.

The following Thursday, April 21 will see the very first visit to Bloomsburg by the FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 Sprint Car Series which will be racing for a $6000-to-win top prize. Accompanying the All Stars will be the All Pro SpeedSTRs.

Racing at Bloomsburg Fair Raceway, now in its second season, starts in April and runs through August.

Champion Dewease Eye’s Williams Grove Opener Sunday, Handicap’s Oval Season Ahead

Opening Day 2022 to feature 410 sprints and wingless super sportsman at 2 pm

3/6/22

Mechanicsburg - While Lance Dewease has no plans to defend his 2021 Williams Grove Speedway track title, the seventh of his oval career, the Fayetteville driver will make frequent visits to the track during the season including for this Sunday’s 2022 season opener.

Presented by Hoosier, gates for the March 13, Opening Day event will open at noon with the sprint cars racing for a $5,500 payday in a 25-lap main event.

Also on the card will be the wingless super sportsman.

“We’ll be at the Grove opener just because it’s opening day,” Dewease says with a note of reverence for the big East Coast lidlifter that he’s won twice during his career.

“And it’s a day show, and to get some laps.”

With the absence of his No. 69K at several shows during the upcoming season already a foregone conclusion, Dewease points to Freddie Rahmer as the top contender to step into the title of Williams Grove champion.

“The main contender’s gonna’ be little Freddie. Just because the other guys that are capable of winning and putting themselves in position to win the championship are probably not gonna’ race there every week,” Dewease says.

“He (Rahmer) will more than likely be there every week. So to me he’s gonna’ be the one you’re gonna’ have to beat. Other guys like Anthony (Macri) and Danny (Dietrich) are gonna’ be tough to
