BRIAN MONTIETH SCORES WIN FOR PA POSSE IN DIRT CLASSIC 6

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Saturday, September 28 (6:00pm) Hank Gentzler Memorial | Manufacturers Appreciation Race presented by Pancho’s Racing Products | 410 Sprints + 358 Sprints

Abbottstown, PA (September 21, 2019) – After watching the PA Posse struggle to find victory lane against the All Stars during their last few trips to Central PA, Brian Montieth scored a $20,000 win against the traveling series on Saturday night at Lincoln Speedway. Montieth’s win put his name in the record books with Stevie Smith as a two-time winner of the Dirt Classic.

The Dirt Classic offers a unique two heat format where drivers earn points for time trials and two sets of heats. The first set is lined up based on time trial results and the second set sees each heat lined up with an invert of nine.

After qualifying was completed Montieth had a one-point advantage over Aaron Reutzel to earn him the pole for the 40-lap main event.

Reutzel had the advantage at the line on the start when Justin Peck lost a wheel on the front stretch bringing out the yellow.

The field lined up for a complete restart with Reutzel once again getting an advantage over Montieth when the green flag flew.

Reutzel was riding around the bottom of the track with Montieth living up to his nickname, “The Edge”, as he rode around the top side of the 3/8-mile oval.

Montieth was lurking right behind Reutzel as he was better in turns 3 and 4. Reutzel had the advantage in turns 1 and 2 and that was enough to keep Montieth at bay.

The leaders were catching the tail end of the field on lap 10 when the red flag came out for Anthony Macri. Macri hit the wall in turn three while running third.

Reutzel led Montieth, Brian Brown, Danny Dietrich and Freddie Rahmer for the restart. Dietrich was up to fourth from his eighteenth starting spot.

Montieth had the advantage on the restart but Reutzel went to the inside of turns 3 and 4 and got back to the line first. The red flag came out again for two separate incidents. Dale Blaney and Tyler Walton got together in turn 3 with Blaney’s car parked on the wall.

Kyle Moody and Chase Dietz were both spun around in turn 4. Both Moody and Dietz were able to rejoin the field.

Dietrich was all over Brown for third and he got around him for the spot on lap 13. Rahmer followed two laps later sending Brown back to fifth.

Reutzel approached lapped traffic on lap 20 and had a .898 second advantage over Montieth at the halfway point of the race.

As the leaders worked through lapped traffic Montieth took the lead coming out of turn 4 on lap 25.

Rahmer got by Dietrich for third on lap 26 with Dietrich taking the spot back two laps later.

Dietrich was on a roll and moved into second on lap 30 but the caution came out for James McFadden. The field was reset to the previous lap erasing Dietrich’s pass for second.

Reutzel and Dietrich battled for second as Montieth pulled away. Montieth had a 2.592 second advantage with 5 laps to go.

Montieth’s lead was all but erased as he caught lapped traffic with 4 laps to go. Montieth and Reutzel were both stuck to the bottom of the track, same as the lapped cars in front of them. Montieth went high in turns 3 and 4 with three laps to go which allowed Reutzel to gain even more on the leader.

Dietrich had caught Montieth and Reutzel with two laps to go. In a last-ditch effort, Reutzel went high going into turn 3 on the last lap. With Reutzel riding the top, Dietrich went low and got by Reutzel for second in the last turn of the last lap of the 40-lap feature.

Reutzel held onto third. Rahmer crossed the line fourth and Brown finished fifth.

Aaron Reutzel, Jim Siegel, Brian Brown, Paul McMahan and Anthony Macri won the first round of heats. The second round of heats were won by Dylan Norris, Glenndon Forsythe, Brian Montieth, Chase Dietz and Trey Starks.

Lance Dewease won the B-main and Aaron Reutzel set quick time over the 49-car field with a lap of 13.492 seconds.

Lincoln Speedway is back in action on Saturday, September 28 with the Hank Gentzler Memorial Manufacturers Appreciation Race presented by Pancho Racing Products featuring the 410 and 358 Sprints. Racing starts at 6:00PM with pit gates opening at 3:30PM and grandstand gates opening at 4:00PM.

FROM WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY

September 20, 2019

AARON REUTZEL WINS TOMMY HINNERSHITZ CLASSIC AT WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY

Chris Frank and Dylan Norris score 358 Sprint Car wins

MECHANICSBURG, Pa. – In August, Aaron Reutzel became the first All

Star Circuit of Champions regular to win a sanctioned event at

Williams Grove Speedway.

Reutzel backed up that win with another one Friday night as the driver

from Clute, Texas, scored the Tommy Hinnershitz Classic for the sprint

cars earning $6,000.

“We’ve been working really hard on getting good when it’s slick and

20-second lap times around this place is unreal, hard,” Reutzel said.

“The car was really good. We hit on something.”

Reutzel and Giovanni Scelzi won the twin dashes and shared the front

row to start the 30-lap main event.

Reutzel grabbed the early lead. James McFadden raced by Scelzi and

into second. Fifth starter Lance Dewease passed Brian Montieth taking

fourth. An inside move by Scelzi in turn four moved Dewease into

third.

McFadden closed on the leader as they caught the rear of the field.

The yellow flew with eight laps completed giving Reutzel clean air

again.

The top three used three different grooves on the restart with Reutzel

blasting the top, Dewease in the middle and McFadden on the bottom.

Dewease caught McFadden for second and tried a frontstretch pass. They

made contact and nearly did again racing into turn three.

Meanwhile, Reutzel pulled away to a comfortable lead staying on the

outside as he began lapping cars.

McFadden put the pressure back on, but Reutzel dropped to the inside groove.

“I saw a lapped car start running the bottom and he kind of pulled me

one lap, but I missed the top,” Reutzel explained. “I tried to run it

harder the next lap to give it one more chance. I seen him pull me and

McFadden get under me at the same time, so I knew it was time to sit

on the bottom.”

McFadden and Dewease stayed close. McFadden took a shot on the top in

three and four, but slipped over the cushion allowing Dewease to drive

by and Scelzi into third.

Reutzel, the current All Star point leader and defending champion,

controlled the final laps winning his second Grove feature in the past

month and 14th on the season with the All Stars.

“I figured there wasn’t too much going on, but then I seen Dewease

move into second,” Reutzel said. “I could hear someone back there. I

was trying to run a little harder, but at the same time, I didn’t want

to catch those lapped cars.”

Dewease, Scelzi, McFadden and Brian Montieth completed the top five.

“I wish I could have cleared (McFadden) because I think I could have

done something with Aaron,” Dewease said. “I could race the middle and

I found a good lane in three and four, but that’s all part of it.”

Kerry Madsen, Cory Eliason, Brock Zearfoss, Danny Dietrich and Brian

Brown rounded out the top 10.

Scelzi set quick time over the 37-car field with a lap of 16.718.

Zearfoss, Madsen, Reutzel and Eliason won the heat races. Freddie

Rahmer won the B-main.

Teenager Dylan Norris won the 20-lap main event for the 358 sprints

over Doug Hammaker, Matt Findley, Todd Rittenhouse and Wyatt Hinkle.

He led every lap for his first career Grove win.

Norris and Findley won the heat races.

In the 25-lap Summer Series make-up feature for the 358 Sprints from

Aug. 2, it was second starter Chris Frank getting the jump on

polesitter Brett Wanner at the start. Frank controlled the race past

the half-way point. Wanner caught the leader with seven laps to go,

but couldn’t make the pass. Frank earned $1,500. Dylan Norris, Chad

Criswell and Glenndon Forsythe completed the top five. Doug Hammaker,

Matt Findley, Troy Wagaman Jr., Gregg Foster and Wyatt Hinkle rounded

out the top 10. Hammaker was the series champion.

LINCOLN SPEEDWAY

Abbottstown, PA

RICK ECKERT TRIUMPHANT IN SUPER LATE MODEL RETURN TO LINCOLN; Matt Findley Establishes Track Record with Win; Billy Powell Victorious in xTreme Stocks

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Saturday, September 21 (7:30pm) All-Star Circuit of Champions | 6th Annual DIRT CLASSIC | 410 Sprints

Saturday, September 28 (6:00pm) Hank Gentzler Memorial | Manufacturers Appreciation Race presented by Pancho’s Racing Products | 410 Sprints + 358 Sprints

Abbottstown, PA (September 14, 2019) – The Super Late Models made their first return to Lincoln Speedway since 2013 on Saturday night. Rick “Scrub” Eckert won the last Super Late Model race held at the track, and after six years, he found victory lane once again taking home $6,000 in the inaugural Billy Vacek Memorial.

Gregg Satterlee had the quickest time in the scramble qualifying format which allowed him to select the inside our outside of the front row for the 40-lap feature. After seeing three of the four heat races won from the outside, he elected for the outside. That lined up quick-timer Bryan Bernheisel to his inside for the start of the main event.

Satterlee had the advantage going into turn 1 when the green flag dropped and led lap 1 with Rick Eckert getting by Bernheisel for second.

The first caution of the race came on lap 4 for Steve Axtell who stopped in turn 4.

The field lined up for a Delaware style restart which sets the field with the leader out front and the remainder of the field lined up side by side. Satterlee was out front with Eckert and Bernheisel lined up behind him.

Eckert held onto second with Mason Ziegler moving up to third. Bernheisel stayed close and raced wheel to wheel with Ziegler trying to take the spot back with Jason Covert watching the battle unfold in front of him.

Eckert caught Satterlee and was all over him trying to take the top spot.

Bernheisel took third back from Ziegler on lap 6 and Covert followed.

Eckert took the lead from Satterlee coming out of turn 2 on lap 9.

Only three laps after taking over the top spot, Eckert held a .72 second lead over Satterlee lap 12 as he entered lapped traffic.

The yellow flag flew again on lap 15. This time it was for Ziegler who slowed on the track as he was running eighth.

Eckert was out front for the restart with Satterlee and Bernheisel lined up behind him.

Bernheisel took over the second spot after restarting on the inside of Satterlee.

Satterlee went low into turn 3 and 4 and nearly took second back. As Bernheisel and Satterlee battled for second behind him, Eckert started to pull away from the field.

After falling back to seventh at the start of the race from his fifth starting spot, Gary Stuhler had made his way back up through the field to fourth on lap 19.

Eckert held a 2.8 second lead halfway through the 40-lap feature.

Satterlee had just taken second back from Bernheisel when the caution came out on lap 21 for Covert who slowed on the track as he was running seventh.

Eckert led Satterlee and Bernheisel on the restart.

Ross Robinson entered the top five on the restart after starting tenth. It didn’t take Robinson to move up to fourth and challenge Bernheisel for third.

Kyle Lee stopped in turn 2 bringing out the yellow on lap 23.

Robinson got under Bernheisel in turns 3 and 4 to take third on lap 25. Bernheisel got him back on the next lap.

Eckert had rocketed out to a 3.9 second lead with 10 laps to go. Lapped traffic came into play on lap 32 but it didn’t slow Eckert down.

The caution on lap 34 erased Eckert's 4.7 second lead over Satterlee. The yellow was for Billy Wampler who stopped in turn 2.

With under 10 laps to go the field lined up for a single file restart. Eckert led Satterlee, Bernheisel, Robinson and Stuhler for the restart with six laps to go.

Eckert took the checkered flag 4.425 seconds ahead of Satterlee. Bernheisel crossed the line third with Robinson finishing fourth. Stuhler completed the top five.

Gene Knaub was the hard charger driving through the field to finish eighth from his eighteenth starting spot.

Heat winners were Mason Ziegler, Mike Lupfer, Rick Eckert and Gregg Satterlee.

Bryan Bernheisel set quick time over the field with a lap of 15.583 seconds.

Matt Findley Establishes Track Record with Win

Matt Findley established a 25-lap Lincoln track record of 7 minutes 2.436 seconds with his 358 Summer Series win on Saturday night. Findley also secured his second-place finish in the season long point standings with his non-stop feature win.

2019 358 Sprint Track Champion, Doug Hammaker, started on the pole of the feature with Findley lined up to his outside.

Hammaker went to the top of the track to lead lap 1 with Findley in second. A three-car battle for third between Cody Fletcher, Wyatt Hinkle and CJ Tracy was transpiring behind the leaders.

Hinkle drove to the top of turns 1 and 2 to take third on lap 3 from Fletcher.

Tracy went to work on Fletcher for fourth and takes the spot on lap 6.

Hammaker entered lapped traffic on lap 8.

Jeff Halligan, who was back in a 358 Sprint after some seat time in a 410 at the track, got a good run on Fletcher coming out of turn 2 on lap 8 but Fletcher blocked his line down the back stretch to hold onto fifth.

Halligan beat him to the line to take fifth after making the pass coming out of turn 4.

Hinkle had reeled in Findley and was challenging him for second as they worked through lapped traffic.

Halligan got under Tracy down the back stretch on lap 12 to take fourth.

The leaders were all running the high line around the track as Findley closed in on Hammaker on lap 16.

Findley looked to the inside of Hammaker, but a lapped car was driving his line down the back stretch. Findley stayed with Hammaker despite the lapped car to take the lead at the line on lap 18.

Billy Powell Victorious in xTreme Stocks

After leading the beginning of the xTreme Stocks’ last appearance at Lincoln Speedway, Billy Powell was leading when it counted on Saturday night to win the 15-lap feature.

Wayne Dutterer started on the pole with Andrew Hogue on the outside of the front row.

Hogue took the lead and led lap 1. It didn’t take long for the first caution to come out. The yellow flag flew just after lap 1 was completed for Jeff Gill who stopped in turn 4.

Hogue led Powell, Dutterer, Gordie Marshall and Michael Smith to the cone on the front stretch for the restart.

Powell pressured Hogue on the start and was all over his bumper down the back stretch.

As Powell was working on Hogue for the lead a three-car battle for fourth was unfolding between Smith, Jed Latshaw and Marshall. Smith emerged from the battle with the fourth spot.

Powell was getting his nose under Hogue going into the turns, but Hogue would come out with the advantage, maintaining the lead.

Smith took third from Dutterer going into turn 3 on lap 5.

Powell got under Hogue going into turn 1 on lap 6 to take the lead. After taking the lead Powell pulled away from Hogue and the rest of the field and never looked back.

Hogue held onto second with Smith crossing the line third. Tim Berkheimer finished fourth after starting last and driving through the field. Latshaw completed the top five.

WAGNER WIRES FIELD FOR $20,000 NACE MEMORIAL NATIONAL OPEN WIN
AT SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY ON RECORD-BREAKING NIGHT

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Logan Wagner of Harrisonville wired the field for the $20,000 victory in Saturday night’s Jim Nace Memorial/37th Annual National Open for 410 sprint cars presented by Red Robin at Selinsgrove Speedway.

The win was Wagner’s first career at Selinsgrove behind the wheel of the Zemco Racing No. 1. He became the 19th different driver to win the speedway’s crown jewel sprint car race. For the past 10 years, the race honored the memory of former five-time sprint car champion Jim Nace of Thompsontown.

Afternoon rain and nighttime humidity produced a smooth, lightning-fast racing surface for the stellar field of drivers all evening.

Kerry Madsen of St. Mary’s, New South Wales, Australia, broke the one-lap track for 410 sprint cars in qualifying with a lap time of 15.694, eclipsing the 2011 track record of 15.810 set by Daryn Pittman of Pittsboro, Ind. In all, five drivers broke the former record. Madsen collected the $300 Fast Tees Fast Time Award.

Garrett Bard of Wells Tannery took the lead on the second lap of the 20-lap 305 sprint car feature and took the win in only his second visit to the track.

Selinsgrove Speedway will close out the 2019 season at 7 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 21, with the Morton Buildings World of Outlaws Late Model Series-sanctioned 21st Annual Late Model Open paying $10,000 to win. The limited late models will join the super lates on the racing card. Gates will open at 4 p.m.

Front row starters Logan Wagner and Freddie Rahmer led the star-studded field to the green flag with Wagner taking the lead. Brian Brown, Kerry Madsen, and TJ Stutts followed.

Trey Starks slowed on the speedway bringing out the caution on lap eight. Starks was running sixth after starting ninth.

Wagner opened a slight lead on the restart but Rahmer closed in on his tail when the pair hit lapped traffic. Rahmer dogged Wagner until the red flag was shown on lap 20 so the cars could refuel.

As the cars were re-fired, 360 sprint car champion Kyle Reinhardt’s car did not fire. Reinhardt was running ninth after starting 21st.

Rahmer looked under Wagner on the restart but it was Wagner who held the lead with the momentum coming off the second turn.

When Wagner hit the lapped cars he had trouble getting around them which put Rahmer back on his nerf bar. Once in clean air he again opened a lead, taking the checkered flag by just .755 seconds in front of Rahmer, Brown, Madsen, and Stutts.

“Tommy (Carl) called me this week and asked how I did at Selinsgrove,” Wagner said. “I didn’t have the heart to tell him I’d never raced there. This is the biggest win of my career. We timed fast, won the heat, and drew the pole so if anything happened, it was because I screwed up.”

“I did race 305’s here once and finished second to my brother Mike after we exchanged slide jobs,” Wagner added. “He called me and told me to get my butt back there and get the job done.”

410 sprint car heats were won by Brown, Wagner, and Rahmer. Lucas Wolfe won the consolation.

Jake Frye jetted to the front of the 305 sprint car lead, followed by Garrett Bard, Keith Prutzman, Jimmy White, and Ian Cumens.

By lap two, Bard, who is a relative newcomer to sprint car racing was in the lead. Bard, racing at the speedway for only the second time, finishing in fifth, took off and hid. His lead at the halfway point was two seconds. The lead was wiped out on lap 18 when Josh Spicer’s car erupted in flames and stopped in the third turn. Spicer was uninjured.

While the cars sat on the speedway, the car of Jeremi Hansen also caught on fire. Those flames were quickly extinguished and Hansen escaped harm. Second running Frye also had issues as his right rear went flat.

Bard led the final two laps winning by 1.039 seconds over Zach Newlin, Prutzman, and Devin Adams. It was Bard’s fourth win of the year.

Newlin, Nathan Gramley, and Adams won the 305 sprint car heats. Jake Waters, driving a Jim Nace No. 44 tribute car, won the consolation.

All Stars Pumped For Williams Grove Tommy Classic Invasion Friday

358 sprints race in full program PLUS make-up main

9/15/19

For Immediate Release

Mechanicsburg – Williams Grove Speedway will present the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Stars Circuit of Champions Sprint Cars Tommy Hinnershitz Classic coming up this Friday, September 20, at 7:30 pm.

Presented by Eleven Oaks Farms, the Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprints will battle the invading All Stars pilots in a 30-lap, $6,000 to win main event in honor of the famed Flying Dutchman who hailed from Oley, Pennsylvania.

The HJ Towing & Recovery 358 sprints are also on the program, competing in a regular program PLUS a make-up 25-lap Summer Series feature, held over from August 2.

Gates for the show will open at 5:30 pm.

Adult general admission for the program is set at $22 with youth ages 13 – 20 priced at $10. Kids ages 12 and under are always admitted for FREE at Williams Grove Speedway.

The All Stars Vs. Pennsylvania Posse match-up will be the next-to-last race in the 2019 Diamond Series at the oval that currently has Danny Dietrich leading points by 15 markers over Freddie Rahmer.

The show comes on the heels of a history-making and memorable event for the All Stars that was held at Williams Grove in August when for the first time in history a card-carrying, touring All Star claimed a main event at the track.

Prior to that August event, the All Stars had succumbed to the local drivers in 35 consecutive races dating back to 1970 before All Stars point leader Aaron Reutzel claimed the first of twin 20s on August 23.

The second twin saw local Lance Dewease pick up the win, making the score now 36 – 1 in favor of the Pennsylvania Posse stars.

But that record could easily go to 36 – 2 this Friday when Reutzel and his band returns to take on the speeds of Williams Grove one more time this season.

Reutzel is arguably the hottest sprint car driver in America having recently roared through Pennsylvania, taking two of three events for the traveling band against all the Posse drivers, including a $52,000 score in one of the biggest races in the area and the country.

The Clute, Texas native now owns 13 wins on the All Stars tour and 15 on the overall season.

Fellow All Stars contenders Dale Blaney, Cory Eliason, Paul McMahan, Brock Zearfoss, Greg Wilson and others, will join Reutzel in the pit area for the big show.

Locally, Williams Grove point leader Danny Dietrich will be primed to take on the All Stars wheelers along with Freddie Rahmer, Ryan Smith, Brian Montieth and Dewease.

Tommy Hinnershitz of Oley, Pennsylvania, holds the distinction of winning the first ever race held at Williams Grove Speedway on Sunday, May 21, 1939.

During his 30-year career spanning 1930-1960, “The Flying 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.

Hinnershitz passed away in 1999.

Located in Newville, race sponsor Eleven Oaks Farm raises Wagyu beef and Gloucestershire Old Spot hogs in an open pasture, low stress environment.

September 27 will find the track prepping for the following week’s Champion Racing Oil National Open by spinning off the National Open Tune Up, paying $8,000 to win a 30-lap feature.

Lineup For August 2 Make-Up 358 Sprint Feature Event: 1. Brett Wanner, 2. Chris Frank, 3. Gregg Foster, 4. Dylan Norris, 5. Chad Criswell, 6. Glenndon Forsythe, 7. Scott Fisher, 8. Dwight Leppo, 9.

Montieth Ends Williams Grove Win Drought With 5K Win Friday

Dave Grube claims 305 sprints

9/13/19

Mechanicsburg – Brian Montieth fought the battle with Freddie Rahmer and won the war at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night by taking the win in the 25-lap Dirt Classic Qualifier for 410 sprint cars.

For Montieth, the victory broke a 17-month win drought at the oval after last scoring a win in April 2018.

The win means that the Phoenixville flyer has earned a guaranteed starting spot in next Saturday's prestigious Dirt Classic at nearby Lincoln Speedway.

In the 305 sprint main on Friday night, Dave Grube picked up the win from the second starting spot.

The initial start of the 410 sprint car feature saw a yellow flag unfurl when the rear of the field bunched up in the fourth turn as it came to the green flag.

Montieth started fourth in the main event when action got underway and he was able to muscle by Ryan Smith for second on the opening lap, behind polesitter and leader Freddie Rahmer.

Montieth got a clear shot at Rahmer on a lap two restart but Smith returned the favor and reclaimed second with a turn three dive.

Smith ended up losing second on the seventh tour when a lapped car pushed him high as he entered the first turn, allowing Montieth to bolt by on the low side of the first and second turns.

By the halfway point, Montieth had run down Rahmer’s advantage and the pair was nose to tail across the line as they worked the backmarkers.

Setting a hectic pace on a quick racing surface, Rahmer did his best to dart through traffic and preserve his lead but a miscue as he worked through turns three and four with 10 laps to go allowed Montieth to buzz the top and snare control at the line.

Rahmer remained hot on Montieth’s heels however and with 19 laps complete he got back to the leader’s inside as they raced through the first corner.

Montieth then drag raced Rahmer onto the backchute before edging ahead on the cushion into the third turn and when he had to check up for a slower car just in front, Rahmer was that close to his tail tank that he had nowhere to go and ended up smashing into the outside fence, causing a yellow flag.

Smith then inherited second spot for the restart but failed to challenge.

Another restart with four laps to go after Trey Starks dropped ouf of fifth spot again found Smith failing to produce a challenge as Montieth sped to the win, worth $5,000.

Smith settled for second, 1.927 seconds behind the winner, followed by Kerry Madsen, Brian Brown and Danny Dietrich.

Sixth through 10th went to TJ Stutts, Matt Campbell, Lucas Wolfe, Steve Buckwalter and Anthony Macri.

Heats went to Campbell, Rahmer and Montieth.

Smith set fast time with a lap of 16.767 seconds.

Grube started second and claimed the 20-lap 305 sprint car main to close the night.

Reutzel Claims 52 Annual Tuscarora 50 and $52,000 Prize in Front of Sell Out Crowd

By- Justin Snyder

PORT ROYAL, Pa-There's an old saying that many runners use for running races.

"It's not a sprint, it's a marathon."

It encourages one to pace themselves. It’s about saving it until the end and having enough to finish. It can also apply to life. Sometimes it takes a while for the payoff to come.

For Aaron Reutzel it took two years. Two years ago, Reutzel rolled into the Port Royal Speedway as a relative unknown. A young upstart trying to make a name for himself, Reutzel wanted to make a statement in Central Pennsylvania against some of the best the country had to offer.

He qualified for the prestigious Tuscarora 50, but he had nothing for 2017 winner Lance Dewease. He got lapped and finished 18th. But it was a learning experience and it left the Clute, Tx., native with a goal…….win the Tuscarora 50.

Saturday night, Reutzel made that dream as a reality as he passed Dewease after a lap 25 competition yellow and never looked back to claim the $52,000 prize to close out the 167th Annual Juniata County Fair and put his name in the history books as the winner of the 52nd Annual Packer's Concessions and Ramsey's Car Wash and Garage Tuscarora 50 Sabrina by the Ollie’s Bargain Outlets All Star Circuit of Champions.

"Unbelievable! I wanted to win this race so bad since the first time we came here," said Reutzel. "We got lapped by the 69K (in 2017) and I said we were going to have to be up front and have a great racecar where we could just maintain to win. We did it!"

But it wasn't just Dewease he was holding off. He had 26 other drivers also looking to add their name's to the list of winners.

Dale Blaney and Dewease started on the front row, but before the field ever took the green Blaney pulled into the infield with motor issues. With his chief competitor for a second consecutive Ollie's Bargain Outlets All Star Circuit of Champions title sitting in the infield, Reutzel moved forward and would start the 50-lap event from the sixth position.

When the green flag dropped, Dewease jumped out to the early lead over Alan Krimes. Fourth starting James McFadden slid in to the second spot early with Reutzel moving into third by the completion of lap two.

With Dewease checking out, Reutzel showed his muscle early by sliding McFadden for second exiting turn two, however the caution came out on lap three when Kerry Madsen and Cory Eliason got together in the middle of turn's 1 and 2 and negated the pass. Eliason would rejoin the field with front-wing damage.

On the restart it was once again Dewease jumping out to the lead. Two laps later, Reutzel used a textbook slide job in turn's one and two to take second from McFadden and he set his sights on the leader.

Back to back Weikert's Livestock 410 track Point Champion Logan Wagner was also on the move early. After starting seventh, Wagner moved into the top five on lap five as well and settled in behind Krimes.

The leaders hit lap traffic on lap 10 and Reutzel was breathing fire down the back of Dewease. On lap 13 Reutzel made his first move for the lead, passing Dewease on the outside of the speedway exiting turn two.

Meanwhile, Wagner moved into the fourth spot as well on the same lap.

However, Dewease wasn't going away. Coming to the flag stand on lap 18, Dewease and Reutzel were side by side. Dewease attempted to slide in front of Reutzel in turn's one and two, only for Reutzel to cross back under exiting the turn to lead lap 19. Dewease would use momentum exiting the backstretch to then power past Reutzel to lead lap 20 coming to the stripe.

Dewease would speed away in lap traffic, pulling to nearly 2.0 seconds ahead. Reutzel was struggling in lap traffic and Wagner was in heavy pursuit as he had moved into the third spot.

As the competition caution came out at the halfway mark, providing crews 5-minutes to make adjustments and refuel, Reutzel knew it was time to go.

"That was the hardest thing I've ever done in my life. Just trying to maintain with him and not use my stuff up," said Reutzel."I was so excited and just wanted to give it 110%, but I had a game plan and wanted to make sure we were going to be there for the second half."

After making small adjustments and adding fuel, Reutzel wasted no time on the restart. He dove under Dewease in turn's one and two and took the top spot to lead lap 26. Gone was the plan to conserve tires and the car as Reutzel ripped around the high side of the speedway, opening up a nearly 2.5 second lead by lap 30.

"After that restart and I got by Lance I said screw it and I was going all in," said Reutzel. "If I burned up my stuff going all in oh well."

The caution would fly on lap 34 as McFadden slowed on the front stretch while running in the top-five.

Enter Anthony Macri. The young Dillsburg, Pa. native, who picked up his first win at the Juniata County oval just last week, started the A-Main from the 12th starting spot and on the restart, he was sitting in fifth.

As green flag action returned, Macri dove under Danny Dietrich in turn's one and two to move into the fourth spot and exiting turn four he slid past Wagner to move into third. It no longer was just the Reutzel and Dewease show.

With 10 to go, Macri was running the fastest laps on the track. Meanwhile, Reutzel was in lap traffic. After jockeying for position for two laps, Macri passed Dewease for second on lap 41 and hoped he would have enough time to track down Reutzel, who held over a 2.5 second advantage.

With five to go, Macri had cut the lead nearly in half. Reutzel was still riding the top of the speedway, while Macri was weaving in and out of traffic using every inch of the speedway.

However, it was just too little, too late as Reutzel played it safe behind lap cars and took the checkered flag by 1.129 seconds over Macri, Dewease, Dietrich and Wagner.

Dylan Cisney, Freddie Rahmer, Justin Peck and Eliason rounded out the top 10.

"I just can’t believe it. To accomplish something like this is just unreal," said an emotional Reutzel in victory lane. "Just to race with (Dewease) is unreal and to have my name on a race he's won and where so many legends have won is just unreal."

Reutzel also remarked how special it was to win the race in front of a huge field of Pennsylvia fans. Track announcers noted earlier in the night that the track was an official sell out with the most fans ever in attendance for a race at the track for the highest paying event in speedway history.

He also congratulated Macri on his run through the field as he didn’t know he was coming so fast.

"Obviously Macri was really good as I had looked up on the board earlier and he wasn't even in the top five so he really must've been coming," said Reutzel. "This is what makes this so special, to win in front of this many people and this is what makes it possilbe for us to race for 52 thousand to win. It’s unbelievable!"

For Macri, it wasn't a win but he was ecstatic standing on the front stretch as a second place finisher in the Tuscarora 50.

"This is freaking awesome!," shouted Macri. "We were gaining on him and just to pass some of the guys we did and to come from where we started is a victory in itself. I'm ready for the rest of the season."

For Dewease, he knew after the lap 25 restart that he couldn’t hold off Reutzel and that his chances of winning were likely over barring a setback for him.

"I knew where I needed to be to hold Aaron off, but once he got by us we had nothing for him," he said. "He's one of the best driver's in the country and Anthony just keeps getting better and better. These guys are really good and we just have ti get better if we want to win these things."

Logan Wagner and received $200 curtesy of Ted Reitz. Macri was also the hard charger of the night, gaining 10 positions to receive $300 courtesy of longtime car owners Dick and Leslie Leach.

Late Models.

Andrew Yoder used a late race pass to pick up his sixth Selinsgrove Ford Limited Late Model victory of the season from a front row starting position.

Yoder and Dillan Stake led the field to the green flag with Stake jumping out to the early lead. Green flag action was haulted early due to wreck on the opening lap.

Once again it was Stake jumping out to the lead. Stake led comfortably, but as he entered lap traffic on lap 15, Yoder began to plot his move. Yoder made his move on lap 17 and just as he was about to take the lead, the caution flew for debris on the speedway.

Setting up a 5-lap dash for the win, Stake again jumped out the lead. Yoder got an outstanding run coming out of turn two to take the lead and the checkered flag by 2.2 seconds over Stake, Devin Hart, Derick Garman and Donnie Farling.

Jared Fulkroad, Eric Hohol, Taylor Farling, Ryan Zook and Kenny Yoder rounded out the top 10.

Yoder earned $1500 for his efforts. The race was an invitational event with group time trials earlier in the night.

All Stars Return To Williams Grove For Tommy Classic September 20

On-Fire Reutzel To Lead All Stars Series Charge Into Big Event

9/8/19

Mechanicsburg – The Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Stars Circuit of Champions Sprint Cars Series is set to return to Williams Grove Speedway coming up in two weeks, on Friday, September 20 for the make-up Tommy Hinnershitz Classic.

The All Stars will invade for the second time this season to compete in the Tommy Hinnershitz Classic going 30 laps in distance and paying $6,000 to win with action slated to get underway at 7:30 pm.

The race was rained out in April but Williams Grove and All Stars officials worked together to reschedule the event for September 20.

The show comes on the heels of a history-making and memorable event for the All Stars that was held at the track in August when for the first time in history a card-carrying, touring All Star claimed a main event at the oval.

Prior to that August event, the All Stars had succumbed to the local drivers in 35 consecutive races dating back to 1970 before All Stars point leader Aaron Reutzel claimed the first of twin 20s on August 23.

The second twin saw local Lance Dewease pick up the win, making the score now 36 – 1 in favor of the Pennsylvania Posse stars.

However that record could easily go to 36 – 2 on September 20 when Reutzel and his band returns to take on the speeds of Williams Grove one more time this season.

Reutzel is arguably the hottest sprint car driver in America at this time having just roared through Pennsylvania, taking two of three events for the traveling band against all the Posse drivers, including a $52,000 score in one of the biggest races in the area and the country.

The Clute, Texas native now owns an even dozen wins on the All Stars season and without a doubt he will be primed to back up his recent Keystone State success when he gets back to Williams Grove in two weeks.

Fellow All Stars contenders Dale Blaney, Cory Eliason, Paul McMahan, Brock Zearfoss, Greg Wilson and others, will join Reutzel in the Williams Grove pit area for late season action in two weeks.

Tommy Hinnershitz of Oley, Pennsylvania, holds the distinction of winning the first ever race held at Williams Grove Speedway on Sunday, May 21, 1939.

During his 30-year career spanning 1930-1960, “The Fyling 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.

Hinnershitz passed away in 1999.

Williams Grove Hosts 410 Sprint Dirt Classic Qualifier September 13

305 sprints also compete

9/8/19

Mechanicsburg – Williams Grove Speedway will return to racing action this Friday, September 13 at 7:30 pm with the Dirt Classic Qualifier for 410 sprints and the PASS IMCA 305 sprint cars.

The Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint cars will be racing in the Dirt Classic Qualifier paying $5,000 to win.

The winner of the 25-lap Dirt Classic Qualifier will be a guaranteed starter for the Dirt Classic at Lincoln Speedway on September 21.

The event will be the next-to-last race in the 2019 Diamond Series at the oval that currently has Danny Dietrich leading points by 15 markers over Freddie Rahmer.

The 305 sprints will compete in a 20-lap main.

Gates for the show will open at 5:30 pm.

Adult general admission for the racing program is set at $18 with youth ages 13 – 20 priced at $10. Kids ages 12 and under are always admitted for FREE at Williams Grove Speedway.

The 410 sprint car event will provide another chance for current Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint point series leader Danny Dietrich to widen his already large advantage over Rahmer in the quest to be season-long track champion.

Ironically, Dietrich already has a “410” point lead over Rahmer in the track title contest with just four point shows remaining on the season following this Friday’s racing program.

The track title would be a career first for Dietrich if he is able to clinch the laurels.

September 20 will find the track hosting the All Stars Circuit of Champions Sprints make-up Tommy Hinnershitz Classic, presented by Eleven Oaks Farms.

Paying $6,000 to win, the 30-lap Tommy Classic was rained out in April.

The HJ Towing & Recovery 358 sprints are also slated for September 20 including a make-up main held over from August 2.

The 57th annual Champion Racing Oil National Open, sanctioned by the World of Outlaws NOS Engery Drink Sprint Cars Series, will close the season at the track on October 4 and 5.

Saturday’s 40-lap Champion Racing Oil National Open will pay $65,000 to the winner and will serve to crown the 2019 Williams Grove Speedway 410 sprint track champion.

TREY STARKS WINS THE NIGHT BEFORE THE TUSCARORA 50 AT PORT ROYAL SPEEDWAY

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – In the final tune-up for the Tuscarora 50, it was
Trey Starks scoring the sprint car win in the 30-lap All Star Circuit
of Champions main event Friday night at Port Royal Speedway.

The 52nd Annual Tuscarora 50, presented by Packer’s Concessions and
Ramsey’s Car Wash and Garage, pays $52,000 to win Saturday night. The
Friday night program was presented by former promoter and announcer
Ted Reitz.

For Starks, of Puyallup, Wash., his second career win against the
Ollie’s Bargin Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions was worth $5,000
in the Jeff McCall/Scott Gobrecht No. 44.

“This feels awesome,” Starks said. “The first part of the year nothing
went our way and now we’re getting some luck on our side and we have
fast racecars. It’s great to be back here. I kept moving my wing back
and getting more grip.”

A massive seven-car pile-up in turn three marred the start of the main
event for the Weikert’s Livestock / All Star sprint cars. TJ Stutts
got sideways entering the corner and collected Jared Esh. They slid
across the turn collecting Danny Dietrich and the others ran into
them. All drivers were okay. A few teams made repairs and restarted.

Aaron Reutzel grabbed the lead when the race resumed over Starks.
James McFadden took third from Tony Stewart while Freddie Rahmer and
Brian Brown swapped fourth.

Reutzel had a comfortable lead until he reached lapped traffic. He
struggled to lap cars and Starks quickly closed.

The yellow flew with nine laps completed for debris on the racing surface.

Following the restart, McFadden passed Starks for second, Brown passed
Stewart and Anthony Macri raced into fifth.

Reutzel blew a left rear tire with 12 completed and slowed bringing
out the yellow.

McFadden inherited the lead, but Starks blasted by him following the
restart. Macri got by Brown and into third.

Starks streaked away from the field.

“After I got by him, I was going to run it as hard as I could up top
and not worry about my tires,” Starks said. “If my tires blow, my
tires blow. I was going to run it as hard as I could and we ended up
making it to the end. It was a great night.”

Another yellow slowed the race with 18 laps completed. This erased his
2.144-second lead.

The yellow flew again for another third turn wreck involving Paul
McMahan and Stutts. The field was stopped to refuel at this time.

Starks got another great restart as Brown took third from Macri. Gio
Scelzi and Macri swapped the fourth spot.

Starks once again streaked away from the field as they got strung out
around a very fast cushion. Starks reached traffic with five to go and
McFadden cut into his lead.

Starks held on for the win over McFadden. Brown, Scelzi and Macri
completed the top five. Brock Zearfoss, Ryan Smith, Freddie Rahmer,
Reutzel and Cory Eliason rounded out the top 10.

Reutzel set quick time over the 58-car field with a lap of 15.957.

Scelzi, McFadden, Brown, Stewart and Macri won the heat races. Alan
Krimes won the C-main. Dewease won the B-main.

Former track champion Lucas Wolfe made his return to speedway after
sitting out almost two months with a back injury. His left rear axle
broke entering turn one during his qualifying time trial lap sending
him into the wall and flipping. He was okay. The wheel cleared the
high first turn fence and hit the side of a house.

The speedway presents the 52nd Annual Tuscarora 50 tonight. The 50-lap
main event for the sprint cars pays $52,000 to win.

Colton Flinner led Rick Eckert and Kyle Lee on the opening lap of the
30-lap main event for the River Valley Builders /Grit House Rt. 35
series for the super late models. Marvin Winters passed Lee for third.

The first yellow flew with four laps completed.

Flinner and Eckert raced hard for the lead following the restart.
Flinner turned back Eckert securing the top spot after a few laps.

The yellow flew with nine laps completed.

Flinner was up to the challenge once again holding back Eckert on the
restart. But, the yellow flew again with 12 laps completed.

Trevor Feathers raced by Winters into third on restart as Flinner
continued to lead.

The yellow flew again with 12 to go.

Both Eckert and Feathers went after the lead on the restart, but again
it was Flinner holding onto the lead.

Flinner hit the fence off turn two. Eckert took advantage driving by
in turn three taking the lead.

Eckert streaked away, but the yellow slowed the race with four laps left.

Feathers grabbed second from Flinner on the restart as Eckert drove
away winning by 1.262. Feathers, Winters, Flinner and Gene Knaub
completed the top five. Austin Berry, Kyle Lee, Hayes Mattern, Bryan
Bernheisel and Roy Deese rounded out the top 10.

Bernheisel edged out Port Royal track champion Dylan Yoder by one
point for the Grit House Series championship.

Bernheisel, Winters and Eckert won the heat races. Deese won the B-main.

Reinhardt Captures First Career 410 Sprint Car Victory in Labor Day Classic, Wagner Locks Up Points Battle

 
 Yoder and Boozel Pick Up Late Miodel and 4-Cylinder Wins in Last Lap Passes

 
 By- Justin Snyder

 

 PORT ROYAL, Pa- Earlier this year, Kyle Reinhardt quit his job as an engineer and uprooted his life from New Jersey to live in Pennsylvania. To some it sounded crazy. He was making good money and he was living a pretty good life racing part-time.

 

 But that wasn't his dream. Sure, it was comfortable and it paid the bills. But it didn’t fulfill him. Reinhardt wanted to race 410 Sprint Cars and he wanted to win in them. To do that, he needed to run more often and he needed laps. So he went all in and made the move.

 

 That decision finally paid off and that dream became a reality as Reinhardt picked up his first career 410 Sprint Car victory at the Port Royal Speedway during the 67th running of the Foss Jewelers Labor Day Classic Monday evening as he bested AJ Flick and Logan Wagner to claim the trophy and the $4000 prize.

 

 "This is pretty awesome! I was crying on my way to the scales," said Reinhardt. "I came here to do this and it’s crazy that I'm standing here in victory lane. This is what it’s all about."

 

 But it wouldn’t come easy. He'd have to fight off Mother Nature, which pushed back the races starting time an hour to 2pm after rains hit the Juniata County oval Sunday night. He also would have to best a field of hungry drivers, one of them being a hard charging Danny Dietrich, who took the promoters 'Keith Kauffman Challenge' in attempt to gain $4000 extra thanks to a couple of his faithful sponsors.

 

 When Dietrich won the feature event Friday night at the Williams Grove Speedway in an race honoring Kauffman from the front row, Kauffman made the joke in victory lane that back in his day they used to do it from 18th.

 

 As a result, the track and his sponsors offered him the chance to make $4000 if he'd give up his fifth starting spot and try and win it from 18th. If he finished second he'd get $2500 and if he managed only a top-10, he'd get an extra $1500. Dietrich boldly accepted and set the stage for an eventful feature event.

 

 Tyler Bear and Reinhardt led the field to the green flag with Reinhardt jumping out to the lead right away using the outside of turn's one and two. The Neptune City, N.J native set a blistering pace with AJ Flick moving into second on the opening lap. However, the caution would come out as Tyler Reeser slowed on the backstretch two laps later with a flat tire.

 

 On the restart, it was Reinhardt again jumping out to a large lead. However all eyes were on Dietrich, who had advanced seven positions to 11th before the caution and by lap four was sitting in the seventh spot.

 

 Two laps later, the field would once again be brought to a slow when Freddie Rahmer and Jared Esh made contact on the backstretch. Rahmer would tag onto the rear right away and Esh would join re-join the field as well after making various repairs in the pits.

 

 Reinhardt once again jumped out to the lead using the high side of the speedway, with ninth-place starter Logan Wagner making it known he'd be a contender by moving into the fifth spot on the restart. Dietrich also was continuing his march forward, sliding into the sixth position in turn's three and four.

 

 Four laps later Reinhardt hit lap traffic and on lap 12, Wagner passed Saturday's winner Anthony Macri and the following lap he slid under Bear for third coming out of turn four.

 

 However, Reinhardt was checking out and held a nearly 2.0 second lead over Flick.

 

 On lap 17, Dietrich attempted to pass Bear for the fourth position with a head of steam entering the bottom of turn three and he had to check up and got sideways, temporarily ending his march forward as he brought out the caution.

 

 With his 2.452 second lead wiped out, Reinhardt once again hit the cushion of the speedway hard. Flick tried to pull a slidejob entering turn's one and two, but couldn't make it stick and settled back into second.

 

 Over the final eight laps, Flick and Wagner would battle each other for the second position but neither of them would have anything for Reinhardt. The only thing that could stop him would be bad luck, and it nearly struck.

 

 Entering the final turn on the white flag lap, Reinhardt felt power in the car go. He thought he might be out of gas, but managed to have just enough power to ride to the finish line by a distance of 1.232 seconds over Flick, Wagner, Macri and Brian Brown, who came from 20th to be the race hard charger.

 

 Dylan Cisney, Mike Wagner, Dietrich, Bear and Rahmer rounded out the top ten. As a result of charging back to finish inside the top 10, Dietrich got the $1500 bonus. In total he passed 21 cars during the race.

 

 However, the night was Reinhardt's, who gladly climbed on top of the wing and saluted the fans in victory lane.

 

 "I felt the car stumble and I about threw up in the car," said Reinhardt. "I was just blasting the top of the speedway and we had an extremely fast racecar."

 

 "I mean we have had a fast car here all year, but we finally pulled it off. I'm honestly speechless," he added.

 

 For Flick, he thought the final restart was his chance to win the race, but ultimately he didn’t have enough to best Reinhardt.

 

 "We were a bit top dependent and I knew he was going to have to make a mistake or something to have a chance," said Flick. "I honestly thought we had him on that restart and I was surprised when he got back around me there, That was the best chance I had."

 

 With his third-place finish, Wagner not only obtained his 11th podium finish of the season, but he clinched his second consecutive Weikert's Livestock 410 Sprint Car championship at the speedway. He became the first person to repeat as champion since Todd Shaffer did it in 2008-09.

 

 "This Zemco car is so much fun to drive and my guys are consistently giving me a car capable of winning," said Wagner. "It's truly a blessing to be in this position and I couldn’t do it without all my guys. Now we'll focus on winning the big one here next week."

Max Blair Wins Butch Renninger Memorial in Juniata County Fair Opener, Macri, Yoder and Mitch also score Big Wins in Front of Packed House

By- Justin Snyder

PORT ROYAL, Pa- Juniata County and Port Royal Speedway is all about tradition. With 2019 being the 165th holding of the Juniata County Fair and the 16th running of the Butch Renninger Memorial, it’s safe to say that many fans have attended more than one of the annual events. They have likely seen it all and experienced everything the fair has to offer.

However, fans witnessed two firsts Saturday night. With contenders Rick Eckert and Gregg Satterlee choosing to take the promoters challenge of going to the rear of the field in attempt to earn nearly $8500, Max Blair capitalized on a front row starting spot to lead all 33 laps and pick up his first career Port Royal Speedway victory and his 26th career with the ULMS series.

"I have a lot of people to thank, but I think I really have to thank Rick and Greg for deciding to start from the rear," laughed Blair. "This thing was good, but it certainly helped knowing they had their work cut out for them to get back up there."

In Weikert's Livestock 410 Sprint Car action, Anthony Macri shook off the bad luck bug to pick up his first career Port Royal Speedway victory as well and he earned $3600 for his efforts and continued to build confidence heading into the $52,000 to win Tuscarora 50 weekend coming up next week.

"Man this feels good and I'm super happy to finally get that monkey off our back," said Macri. "I think we found every way to lose these things here. I'm just glad we found a way to finally win one and I'm feeling good about next week."

Andrew Yoder won in Selinsgrove Ford Limited Late Model action and Brad Mitch picked up the win in Juniata Junction Xtreme Stock action in an event that was shorted to eight laps after a vicous crash involving multiple cars littered the front stretch with debris late in the night

But the highlight of the night was the ULMS Renninger Memorial race for the Super Late Model Series. With the Tilton Hilton Hard Charger award in honor of Glenn Winnick sitting at 3, 333 dollars heading into the A-Main, track promoter offered all eight drivers at the re-draw the opportunity to go to the rear and if they were able to claim the award, hey would receive $4000 plus their finishing position pay.

Only Eckert and Satterlee, both veterans of many tears, took the bait and both drivers gave up their starting spots for a chance at the money.

Bryan Bernheisel and Max Blair led the field to the green flag with Blair jumping out to the early lead. Blair However momentum would be stopped on lap two as a spin on the backstretch brought out the caution.

Once green flag action returned, it was Blair again jumping out to a large lead with Marvin Winters passing Bernehisel for second on lap three.

However, all eyes were on the two drivers coming form the tail of the field. With the leader hitting lap traffic on lap eight, both Satterlee (eighth) and Eckert (10th).

By lap 14, Eckert had advanced to seventh and Satterlee was in sixth. Meanwhile, Blair was checking out .Eckert made the move to pass Satterlee for sixth one lap later, setting him up to claim the $4000 prize.

On lap 22, Jason Covert slid past Winters for second and he started to try and track down Blair, who is currently the ULMS points leader. As the final laps ticked away, Covert was trying his hardest, but he was no match for Blair on this night.

Ultimately Blair would lead every lap and take home $5442 upon taking the checkered flag by 1.712 second advantage over Covert and Winters. Dylan Yoder and Eckert rounded out the top five, with Eckert claiming the $4000 hard charger award and earning a total of $4850 for his efforts.

"I must've been braindead to decide and go to the rear," said Eckert, who was happy with the check but disappointed not to be in victory lane. "I'm glad we could pout on a show for the fans, but we obviously had a car capable of winning and that was just a challenge."

For Blair, it was a dream come true to finally get a victory at the Juniata County oval. He was excited to finally make it happen in a prestigious event.

"I can’t believe it! This is going to take a bit to sink in," said Blair. "The car was really rolling off the top, but I just tried to not look at the scoreboard and I just kept watching the flagman waiting for him to say two-to-go."

Or Covert, it was too little too late and he was happy to come home second against a stout field of cars.

"He got put there in clean air and really anymore these days that's the name of the game." said Covert. "I wanted to win this thing, but sometimes second is just as good as a first and we're happy with the run."

Satterlee, Ross Robinson, Trevor Feathers, Tim Smith Jr. and Kyle Lee rounded out the top ten. As a result of his fourth place finisb, Yoder also unofficially clinched the point standings win in the River Valley Builders series.

Sprint Cars.

Anthon Macri held off a hard charging Danny Dietrich to claim his first career Weikert's Livestock 410 feature event.

"I can't really put this into words quite yet. This is just awesome." said Macri. "We've been so fast and I knew it was just a matter of time. But I was honestly tired of waiting."

Jared Esh and Macri led the field to the green flag, with Esh jumping out to the early lead For the first five laps, not much occurred. Esh led Macri and AJ Flick by a short distance with Kyle Reinhardt and Logan Wagner and Lance Dewease in tow.

Coming out of turn 2, Macri used a slide job to get under Esh. However this allowed Flick to gain momentum on the top of the speedway. Coming down the backstretch Flick passed Esh on the outside and then dove under Macri in turn's three and four. In a drag race to the line, Flick was credited with leading lap five.

Flick attempted to stretch his lead, however action behind the leader was getting hot and heavy. With close to a 1.0 second lead on lap 10, Macri and Reinhardt were swapping positions behind him and Dewease, who started eighth was on their tail tanks looking to pounce.

Four laps later, it was Danny Dietrich entering the picture. Using a head of steam exiting turn two on the outside of the speedway, Deitrich passed both Wagner and Dewease to move into the fourth position. He continued to march forward with the top six drivers all within 2.0 seconds of each other in lap traffic.

By lap 20, Macri was on the rear bumper of Flick and Dietrich was closing fast as well. Macri slid under Flick in turns one and two on lap 21, but Flick crossed back under him exiting two. Macri would use momentum to get under Flick entering turn three and would lead lap 22. However, Flick wouldn't go away. Coming out of turn two the following circuit, Flick sped under Macri down the backstretch before the red flag flew for a flipping Justin Whittall in turn three, handing the lead back to Macri.

On the restart, Macri once again jumped out to the lead, now maintaining a different line on the speedway thanks to instructions his crew provided under the red flag. On the white flag lap Dieterich was able to slip by Flick using the middle of the speedway, but by then Macri had secured a large enough to advantage to coast to his first career victory by a 1.340 second advantage

Dietrich, Flick, Dewease and Reinhaedt rounded out to top five with Esh, Wagner, Brian Briown, Dylan Cisney and Heimbach making up the top 10.

"Jim Shuttlesworth came on board after Knoxville and we switched his son's shocks and this thing has been a rocket ship ever since." said Macri. "It was nice to finally cross the checkered flag and not feel like we let one get away."

For Dietrich, he believed he had a car capable of winning and if not for the red flag he might've been sitting one spot better at the checkered flag.

"I think that red flag really helped him as his guys could kind of tell him where to go and such," said Dietrich. "I was really sailing the top and things were about to get really good out there, but I'm happy he finally got his win and we'll look to be better Monday."

Limited Late Models

Andrew Yoder continued his dominance of the Selinsgrove Ford Limited Late Model division as he cruised from the 10th starting position and passed Ryan Zook on lap 19 to claim the $1533 prize.

"Honestly this car is so good here that I really feel like I have to screw it up to not have a shot to win," said Yoder. "We've had an amazing year at Port Royal and winning these races never gets old."

Eric Hohol and Paul Cursey lead the field to the green flag with Hohol taking the early lead. One lap later Cursey would get turned around in turn one battling for the third position, collecting two other cars and bringing out the caution.

On the restart, it was Ryan Zook on the move as he used the outside of the speedway to move into the second position and one lap later he got by Hohol on the backstretch to take the lead. Troy Miller would come in tow one lap later to move into the second spot as well.

On lap six, Yoder was making it know that he was coming, sliding into the fourth position. Three laps later the leaders hit lap traffic.

The caution flew on lap 10 for a car turned around on the backstretch, once again bunching up the field and setting up Yoder to make his move.

Yoder would slide into the third position exiting turn four on the 11th circuit, but the caution would fly two laps later after three cars got tangled on the backstretch. Another caution would once again fly before any green flag laps would be counted following the restart.

Once green flag action returned, Miller attempted to perform a slide job on Zook in turn's one and two. This allowed Yoder to fly by Miller for second on the outside.

By lap 18, Yoder was on the tail of Zook. For the next two laps he would try and complete the pass using the bottom of the speedway and he would finally take the lead for good on lap 20.

He would go untouched the final five circuits and would win his fourth Port Royal Speedway feature of the year by 2.598 seconds over Zook, Miller, Derrick Garman and Todd Snook. Shaun Miller, Craig Wagaman, Trent Brenneman, Hohol and Cursey would round out the top five.

"The car was jut amazing and it just feels like it’s gliding out there," said Yoder. "I don’t know iff it just likes big tracks, but I jut feel really good out there and I'm happy to win this race."

For Zook, he didn’t want to see those late cautions and thought without them he might've had a shot.

"We definitely didn’t need to see all those cautions toward the end," said Zook. "We were not really good in one and two and we needed open space to be able to hold him off. But we'll take second."

Results- 1. Andrew Yoder 2.Ryan Zook 3.Troy Miller 4.Derrick Garman 5. Todd Snook 6. Shaun Miller 7.Craig Wagaman 8. Trent Brenneman 9. Eric Hohol 10. Paul Cursey 11. Jared Fulkroad 12.

Abbottstown, PA (August 31, 2019) – There was a three-way battle for the 410 Sprint 2019 track championship going into the final point race Saturday night. Brian Montieth had an eighty-point advantage over Chad Trout who was in third place and thirty points over Alan Krimes who was sitting in second place.

Montieth could solidify his eighth track championship with a win. But with two heavy hitters also in play there were scenarios in which all three could pull off the championship.

Two championship contenders shared the front row of the 30-lap Bob Leiby Memorial. Montieth drew the pole and Krimes was to his outside.

Trout started seventh after being knocked out of the redraw by Montieth in their heat race. The PA Speedweek format was used with the winner and fastest car from time trials in each heat race making the redraw. If the winner is the fastest car from time trials only one car from that heat race makes the redraw.

After setting quick time over the 24-car field Chase Dietz started third with Kyle Moody starting fourth.

Montieth led lap 1 with Krimes being challenged by Dietz for second.

Freddie Rahmer moved into fourth getting by Moody with Cory Haas not far behind to take fifth.

Rahmer was running third by lap five from his sixth starting spot.

Scott Fisher got turned around in turns 1 and 2 on lap 6 bringing out the caution.

Dietrich Claims Williams Grove Kauffman Tribute For Sprints, Buckwalter Gets URC Main

8/30/19

Mechanicsburg – Danny Dietrich led flag to flag to pick up the Keith Kauffman Tribute race for sprint cars at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night.

Dietrich’s fifth win of the season at the track, as the point leader, was worth $4,777.

In the URC Sprint feature, Royersford driver Steve Buckwalter drove to his first 360 sprint car win ever at the oval.

Dietrich drew the pole for the 25-lap Kauffman Tribute event and took the lead from Chad Trout on the opening lap as Trout went low in the first corner.

Dietrich zipped to his outside on the cushion and drove into a comman that he would never relinquish.

Event fast qualifier Brian Montieth started third in the race and got by Trout as well and would dog leader Dietrich for the entire non-stop distance.

Dietrich hit traffic with 15 laps to go with Montieth hot on his heels.

Montieth gained dramatically at times using the same cushion that Dietrich was riding with the lead bu the opportunity never presented itself for Montieth to take control.

Montieth’s closest chance at stealing the win came on lap 13 when Dietrich tried to go low on Dylan Cisney to put him a lap down.

But as soon as Dietrich settled back into his groove, he again was firmly in command.

Montieth would cross the line .447 seconds behind at the finish with third going to Ryan Smith.

Chad Trout finished in fourth with Freddie Rahmer finishing in the fifth spot.

Sixth through 10th went to Brian Brown who started fourth in the race, Kyle Moody, Cory Haas, TJ Stutts and Steve Buckwalter.

The win extended Dietrich’s point lead over Rahmer in a quest for his first Williams Grove track title. It was Dietrich’s 24th career victory at the track.

Heats went to Montieth and Trout. Montieth’s fast time was 17.180 seconds.

Defending URC series champion Josh Weller led the first three laps of the URC Sprints main before second starter Steve Buckwalter took over.

Buckwalter was then chased by Weller and Chad Layton before the first caution flag of the race unfurled with five laps completed.

Mark Smith motored into third on the restart and was racing with Weller for second when the final caution of the race came out with 15 laps to go.

Smith finally put Weller behind him with 12 laps to go and then closed on the leader.

But Buckwalter was able to keep Smith at bay to pick up the $2,000 win by .491 seconds.

Weller finished third followed by Kyle Reinhardt and Jason Shultz.

Sixth through 10th went to Curt Michael, Layton, Tyler Ross, Jimmy Stitzel and Derek Locke.

URC heats went to Michael, Buckwalter and Layton.

Miller Edges Macri at Line for Third Victory of Season, Hammaker and Price Pick Up First Career Victories

By- Justin Snyder

PORT ROYAL, Pa- Jeff Miller added to what has already been a fairytale season as he picked up his third Weikert's Livestock 410 Sprint Car victory of the season when he bested Anthony Macri by mere inches (.010) at the start/finish line in the closest margin of victory known since the inception of electronic timing and scoring in the history of the Port Royal Speedway.

"They said earlier in the night that I had won two races in my rookie season and even then it didn’t seem real," said Miller. "To be up here again is pretty special and this season has just been amazing."

Open Wheel Madness 2 surely lived up to it’s namesake as 101 sprint cars across three divisions packed the Speedway pits to begin the night.

In the feature, Daryl Stimeling and Tyler Bear led the field to the green flag with Bear jumping out to the early lead. However, it would be short lived as Miller blasted past Bear on the outside of the track exiting turn 2 from his fourth starting spot to claim the lead and lead the opening circuit.

As Miller began to stretch his lead, it was former NASCAR champion and surprise attendee Tony Stewart making early moves. Starting from the seventh starting position, Stewart was up to fourth at the completion of the opening circuit.

Macri was also on the move. Rolling off from the eighth starting spot, Macri moved into sixth on lap six, just as Miller began to enter lap traffic on the backstretch with a nearly 3.0 second lead at his expense.

One lap later Stewart moved into third using the top of the speedway coming to the line and on lap eight he overtook Bear for second in turn's one and two on the outside.

With Miller having issues clearing the lap cars, Stewart was chipping away at the lead. Meanwhile Justin Whittall had moved into third and Macri had worked himself up to fourth, passing Bear with 11 to go.

Stewart, running a Ford powered engine, was having a hard time clearing the lap car of Nicole Bower, but on lap 18 he finally cleared her and he closed to the tail tank of Miller, who was struggling to get around Anthony Fiore's lap machine.

Stewart tried the bottom of the speedway, but couldn't quite clear Miller as Miller rocketed around the top and momentum kept him in the lead. With three laps to go, Stewart maneuvered the middle of turn's 3 and four to overtake the rookie to take the lead. However, just as he passed the flag-stand to lead the lap, Stewart banged wheels with Fiore, causing his left rear tire to go flat, handing the lead back to Miller

"I was having a terrible time getting around those lap cars and I knew those guys were coming," said Miller. "Tony kind of threaded the needle and I wasn't really sure what happened to him, but he had a quick car."

As Stewart pulled off the speedway, Miller continued to rail the cushion. Still struggling to pass the lap cars of Fiore and Stimeling, Whittall and Macri were in hot pursuit and it wouldn't be his last challenge for the lead.

On the white flag lap, Macri slid under Whittall to take the second position in turn's one and two and used a head of steam down the backstretch to slide under Miller entering turn 3. He pulled ahead of Miller and cleared him exiting turn four, but Miller crossed under him and the two cars briefly banged wheels coming to the checkered flag with Miller being deemed the winner by the closest of margins.

Macri, Whittall, Jared Esh, who was the night's hard charger coming from the 18th starting position and Logan Wagner rounded out the top five. Wagner also overcame extreme adversity as he wrecked his Zemco Headers #1 in warm-ups and was forced to pilot his father's car for the rest of the night to help protect his points lead.

Passing was rampant throughout the field with eight cars advancing at least four positions. AJ Flick, who won the B-Main, also came form 21st to finish seventh, all in nonstop action.

"We rubbed wheels and I pinched him or whatever, but he didn’t really seem real happy with me," said Miller of the dash to the checkered flag. "It was a racing deal. I'm not giving up for nothing, but I'm not going to destroy my car or his over it."

For Macri, he was happy with the second and is hoping to use the momentum and recent surge of speed for the big races upcoming on the schedule. He also struggled with an ignition switch problem that halted momentum early in the night.

"This car is nothing shirt of a rocket ship," said Macri. "If it wasn’t for me hitting the ignition switch twice during that feature I think the outcome might have been different. I'm feeling pretty good about the Tuscarora 50 right now to be honest with you."

Bear, Flick, Dan Shetler, Steve Buckwalter and TJ Stutts rounded out the top 10.

305 Sprint Cars

Landon Price passed Doug Dodsen on a lap eight restart and never looked back to claim his first career Penns Valley Meat Market PASS/IMCA 305 Sprint Car victory at the Port Royal Speedway.

Dodsen and Kenny Heffner led the field to the green flag with Dodsen jumping out to the early lead. Dodsen would stretch out a half a straightaway lead over the opening eight laps with Price and Nick Sweigart in tow.

A caution for Jimmy White getting into the outside guardrail in turn three would slow the field on lap eight and set up Price to make his move.

On the restart, Price dove to the bottom of turns 1 and 2 and cleared Dodsen exiting the turn to lead for the first time. Over the remaining 12 laps, Price would go unchallenged. He would ultimately take the checkered flag by a 2.085 second over Dodsen and a hard charging Garrett Bard, who started eighth.

Nick Sweigart and Devin Adams rounded out the top five with Drew Ritchey, Ken Duke, Kassidy Kreitz, Zach Newlin and Heffner filling out the top 10.

Dave Grube, Jonathon Jones and Robert Garvey all wrecked coming to the finish line, with Grube slamming hard into the inside guard rail. It was a rough night for Jones, who entered the night as the series points leader. After blowing a tire in his heat race and charging forward to advance through the B-Main, he would be credited with a 21st place finish. Duke now holds a 40 point lead in the standings over Jones as a result.

"Honestly, it was so slick out there and I was waiting to see him come back around me," said the 17 year old Price of his race winning pass of Dodsen. "I don’t know what to say here, I feel like I'm dreaming."

Dodsen, who picked up a victory with the series last week at Path Valley, was happy with a second place finish.

"I was rolling really good early in the feature," said Dodsen. "I didn't want to see that caution, but ultimately that's how it goes in racing. We'll take the second and move on."

358 Summer Series

Doug Hammaker passed Brett Wanner with five laps to go and held off a hard charging Kevin Nouse to pick up his first career Port Royal Speedway victory in the 358 Summer Series only visit to the track in 2019.

"This is pretty dang cool to be here in victory lane," said Hammaker. "It's just really awesome and I don't know what else to say."

Dwight Leppo and Greg Foster led the field to the green flag, but it was Wanner rocketing to the early lead from his fourth starting position. He would enter lap traffic on lap six. Meanwhile Nouse was on the move early. After lining up in the eleventh position, he was already into the top five by lap seven.

One lap later, Hammaker moved into second using the top of the speedway in turn's one and two and Nouse followed suit into fourth the following circuit in turn's three and four.

The caution would come out on lap 10 for a spinning car in turn four. On the restart, Hammaker tried to pull a slidejob on Wanner in turn's one and two, but Wanner had momentum and exited turn two with the lead again. One lap later, Nouse entered the top three as he passed Foster using the bottom of turn three.

As Wanner entered lap traffic on lap 16, Hammaker began to set up his next move. He hit his marks over the next four laps and remained patient, before diving to the bottom of Wanner is traffic in turn's three and four and taking the lead for good with five to go.

"I was able to reel him in there in lap traffic and I was just biding my time," said Hammaker of the winning pass. "He's going to win many of races, but that was just experience paying dividends there."

Nouse would pass Wanner for second the following lap, but would never have anything for Hammaker as he would take the $1500 payday by a margin of 2.364 seconds.

Wanner, Foster and Leppo would round oiut the top five with Steve Owings, Todd Rittenhouse Jr., CJ Tracy, Cody Fletcher and Troy Wagaman filling out the top 10.

Nouse was happy with second, but ultimately felt he let one get away earlier in the race,

"I'm really pleased with the run considering we started 11th and I love Port Royal Speedway," said Knouse. "But I'm a little mad at myself because I had an opportunity to get by Hammaker earlier in the night and I didn't pass him when I could've. But we'll take a second."

Officials got the field lined up after docking Brandon Rahmer a row for being late to staging are.

Gee got the advantage when the green flag dropped but Brock Zearfoss came to a stop in the bottom of turn 1 bringing out the caution.

The field lined side-by-side again for a complete restart after Zearfoss rejoined the.

Gee took the lead again on the start. The caution came out again before a lap was in the books. Danny Dietrich, Chase Dietz and Tim Glatfelter got tangled up in turn 4 with Glatfelter nearly ending up on his side.

All-Star regular, Gerard McIntyre, had a flat right front tire under caution. His team changed the flat and McIntyre was able to tag the rear.

Dietrich and Glatfelter walked back to the pits from the crash and were penalized by All-Star officials for a rule violation. Both cars were parked in the infield until the conclusion of the feature.

The field lined up once again for a complete restart and the saying “the third times a charm” rang true. The start was clean with Gee to the lead and both Dale Blaney and Jeff Halligan getting around Campbell.

As Gee was pulling away and Ryan Smith was starting to work on Campbell for fourth the caution flag flew yet again. Brian Montieth slowed as he had a flat right rear lap 2. Montieth utilized the two-minute work time and rejoined the field.

This time the field lined up for a single file restart with Gee leading Blaney, Halligan, Campbell and Smith to the cone.

Gee went high on the restart going into turn 1 with Blaney diving low.

Halligan made a move on Blaney for second and nearly bicycled after hitting the cushion but and saved it and continued on. In the meantime, both Smith and Campbell got by him shuffling him back to fifth.

The field saw the yellow again on lap 4 for McIntyre and Cory Haas who got together in turn 4.

Adam Wilt went to the bottom in turn 3 to get by Cory Eliason for sixth. Eliason took the spot back on the next lap.

Gee had nearly a 2.5 second lead as he approached lap traffic on lap 10 when the caution out again in turn 2 for Montieth. Montieth was running 13th and spun out. He rejoined the field again.

Smith got under Campbell going down the back stretch for third taking the position. Campbell didn’t go away quietly and stuck around to try and get the spot back from Smith.

Wilt and Eliason continued to battle for position.

Gee had a 2.78 second lead on lap 15, halfway through the main event.

The caution came out yet again on lap16. Eliason got spun around while running 5thcoming out of turn 2. He rejoined the field.

Smith was getting a great run out of turn 2 while trying to reel in Blaney for second.

Halligan raced his way back up to fifth after falling back to seventh earlier in the race.

Gee continued to pull away but tagged the wall coming out of turn 4 lap 21 losing a second of his advantage over Blaney. Despite the mishap Gee had created enough distance between Blaney to maintain his lead as he approached lapped traffic to cross the finish line first for his first career All-Star victory.

Smith completed the podium with a third-place finish. Wilt finished fourth and Halligan crossed the line fifth.

Dale Blaney, Jeff Halligan and Ryan Smith were the heat race winners. Brandon Rahmer won the B-main.

Jeremy Ott Ends Dominating Season with Victory

Jeremy Ott has been a dominating force at Lincoln Speedway in 2019 racing with the Central PA Legends. In the series’ last race of the year at the track, Ott continued to impress.

Jeremy Hahn stared on the pole of the 20-lap feature with Travis Perry lined up to his outside. Alex Schmeidel and Ott made up the second row.

The outside line was fast with Perry taking the lead at the start and Ott sliding into second.

Ott and Perry drag raced to the flag stand to complete lap 1 with Ott getting the edge. Perry stuck around and got the lead from Ott on lap 2.

Ott got his nose under Perry coming out of turn 2 on lap 3 but couldn’t make the pass.

While Perry and Ott battled for the lead, Mason Chaney was working his way through the field from his tenth starting spot. Chaney was up to fifth by lap 4.

Perry led Ott, Schmeidel, Hahn and Chaney on the restart.

Chaney got by Hahn for fourth.

Perry and Ott drove wheel to wheel lap coming to the flagstand on lap 8 with Perry holding on to the lead.

Bill Diehl and Chaney got together on the front stretch bringing out the caution. Hahn was also involved but was able to keep running so he kept his spot. The cars involved were running fourth, fifth and sixth at the time.

Perry held off Ott on the restart, but Ott stayed within striking distance. Ott got his nose under Perry on lap 12 but Perry once again beat him to the flagstand.

Dietrich And Layton Battles For Career First Titles Continue Friday At Williams Grove

8/25/19

Mechanicsburg - Two different sprint car point battles will continue at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night and both have something in common.

Both drivers trying to win titles in the 410 sprints and URC Sprints are looking for the first crowns of their careers.

In the 2019 Williams Grove Speedway 410 sprint car point battle for the track title, Gettysburg’s Danny Dietrich leads the standings over one-time champion Freddie Rahmer.

If he is able to hold on through the final six shows of the season at the track, the oval title will be the first ever for the Adams County pilot.

But Rahmer is close enough to keep the pressure on, some 340 points back, so that one bad feature run for Dietrich could dramatically close the gap for Rahmer.

Both Dietrich and Rahmer have four Williams Grove wins to their credit to date this season.

And in the URC Sprint season point battle, Harrisburg’s Chad Layton is trying to record his first ever series title.

Layton has two wins on the season and nine top five finishes while his pursuer Josh Weller holds a single victory and 11 top five finishes.

Weller is the defending series titlist and is looking to make it two in a row, now 71 markers out of the lead.

Gates for this Friday’s 410 sprint, URC Sprint open wheel doubleheader open at 5:30 pm with racing action slated for 7:30 pm.

The URC Sprints will race in a 25 lap main paying $2,000 to win while the 410 sprints compete in the 25-lap Keith Kauffman Tribute feature paying $4,777 to the winner.

Adult general admission for the big sprint car show is set at $18 with youth ages 13 – 20 admitted for just $10. Kids ages 12 and under are always FREE at Williams Grove Speedway.

WOMER, FRYE, MOSER & BUSSEY WIN RACES SATURDAY NIGHT;
REINHARDT, FRYE, LAWTON & JONES BECOME FIRST-TIME CHAMPIONS

SELINSGROVE, Pa. -- Foss Jewelers Champions Night was presented Saturday night at Selinsgrove Speedway.

Coleby Frye of Dover not only became a three-time winner at the track this season in the super late models but also clinched his first career track championship in the process. The $2,500 win in the 25-lap feature was also a Grit House Route 35 Challenge Race for the super late models that drew a 26-car field.

Colby Womer of Mt. Pleasant Mills won his first 360 sprint car race of the season while Kyle Reinhardt of Neptune City, N.J., scored his first track championship in the division with his seventh-place finish in the 25-lap feature.

Bob Bussey of Northumberland won his first roadrunner feature of the year with Jake Jones of Hunlock Creek crowned as the track champion.

Brandon Moser of Middleburg remained undefeated in August by winning his fourth in a row and his seventh overall in the 15-lap pro stock race. Shaun Lawton of Bloomsburg won his first track championship like his grandfather John Crawford did at the speedway in 1970.

Selinsgrove Speedway will be back in action next Sunday, Sept. 1st with the Selinsgrove Ford Summer Spectacular Ray Tilley Classic for 410 Sprint Cars plus the United Late Model Series, pro stocks, and roadrunners at 7 p.m. Gates will open at 4 p.m. There will be no racing on Saturday, Aug. 31..

Coming into the final points races of the season, Shaun Lawton in the pro stocks and Jake Jones in the roadrunners only had to take the green flag for each to claim his first track championship.

The 360 sprint cars and super late model point chases were a different story. In the 360 sprint cars, Kyle Reinhardt held a 90 point advantage over former track champion Jason Shultz. Coleby Frye’s super late model edge was even closer, leading last year’s champ Bryan Bernheisel by just 40 points. To make things even tougher the late model race was part of the Grit House Route 35 Challenge Series with a full field of cars on hand.

Austin Bishop used the outside pole to grab the early sprint car lead followed by Colby Womer who blasted up the inside. Jake Hummel, Jason Shultz and Cody Keller followed.

Jason Wagner spun in turn four bring out the caution on lap five.

Womer dogged Bishop low but the high side was faster and Bishop held him off for several laps.

Womer finally grabbed the track off turn two on lap 15 to take the lead and immediately took off. Two laps later, Ryan Kissinger passed for second and started to close on Womer.

Kissinger could not catch Womer who took his first win of the season. Kissinger, Shultz, Chad Layton and Bishop rounded out the top five.

“It’s been a long, long, long, long time,” Womer said of his first win in several years. “With two seconds, a sixth, and now a win, our team knew we were getting better but unless you’re standing here no one notices.”

Sprint car heats were won by Shultz and Layton.

Hayes Mattern shot into the late model feature race lead from the outside pole position and was followed by Dylan Yoder, Jeff Rine, Coleby Frye, and Brett Schadel. Dick Houtz spun on lap one bringing out the caution flag. While the cars paced under caution the car of Dan Green erupted in flames bringing out the red flag. Quickly on the scene, the track crew extinguished the flames and Green escaped injury.

Using the Delaware restart, Mattern maintained the lead from the outside lane while Yoder and Rine fought for second. Houtz spun again slowing the field. Under caution, Rine pulled off of the speedway.

Frye blasted by Yoder for the runner up spot and a lap later passed Mattern off of turn four for the lead. Following Frye into second was Bernheisel as the pair fought for the race win and track crown.

In clean air Frye was adding .1 seconds to his lead each lap. At the midway point of the race his lead was 3.46 seconds.

As Bernheisel was trying to catch Frye, Yoder mounted a challenge until he was running second by lap 16. Yoder immediately started to make up ground and was soon right behind Frye.

Lapped traffic came into play for the duo When the yellow flew again on the final lap for Cody Lyter who stopped on the track, setting up a one lap shootout.

Frye led the last lap winning the race and the championship.

“I lost brakes during the race and just about hit a lapped car so I didn’t want to see the caution come out on the last lap,” Frye said. “Our truck broke down twice on the way up tonight so i was already upset when we got here.”

Bryan Bernheisel, Yoder, Jim Bernheisel, and Mike Lupfer rounded out the top five.

Yoder, Mattern, and Schadel won the late model heats. Bryan Bernheisel set fast time in group time trials at 19.983 seconds.

Scott Dunham used the outside groove to take the roadrunner lead followed by Bob Bussey, Will Brunson Curtis Lawton and Terry Kramer.

Bussey passed Dunham for the lead on the following lap. A lap later Lawton was in second and Brunson followed into third.

Kramer soon joined the party and the four cars ran under a blanket.

Bussey held on for his first win of the season followed by Lawton, Brunson, Kramer and Jake Jones were in the top five.

Bussey and Tom Brunson won the Roadrunner heats.

Brandon Moser wrestled the lead from Kyle Bachman in the pro stock feature with Shaun Lawton, Corey Long, and John Schoch following. Moser wired the field for his fourth win in a row. Bachman, Lawton, Long, and Schoch rounded out the top five.

Moser won the pro stock heat.

Texan Reutzel Becomes First Williams Grove All Stars Winner In 50 Years

Dewease Scores 97th Win In Gunn Memorial Twin 20s Friday

8/23/19

Mechanicsburg – The streak has ended. For the first time in 50 years of All Stars races at Williams Grove Speedway dating back to 1970, an All Stars driver has won an All Stars main event at the oval. And his name is Aaron Reutzel.

Reutzel, of Clute, Texas, and local driver Lance Dewease were the stars of the shows Friday night at Williams Grove in the Jack Gunn Memorial Twin 20s for the All Stars Circuit of Champions Sprint Cars.

Reutzel would end up leading all 20 laps of the first main event at the line each time around but Dewease had the lead more than once and would nearly sweep the twins as he went on to claim the second feature event.

Reutzel was chased by fellow All Star Paul McMahan when the first twin got started with McMahan drawing to his outside for control on the second lap as Dewease raced in third.

By lap seven, a fleet-running Reutzel entered the rear of the field as Dewease tested McMahan with an outside move in the third and fourth turns.

Traffic would prove quite challenging for McMahan and especially Reutzel but McMahan held on to the second spot until lap 11 when Dewease was able to power by and then set his sights on the leader.

It only took two laps until Dewease was on Reutzel’s fuel cell and the pair was racing just yards apart as they crossed the line on laps 13 and 14 before Dewease went under Reutzel in the first and second turns with five laps to go.

But Reutzel was not to be denied as he ripped the cushion out of the second corner and drew even with Dewease as the pair raced side by side down the backstretch and into the third turn.

By this point Dewease was exercising a lethal swoop maneuver into the corner but Reutzel put four wheels above the cushion and purely out-powered Dewease around the top and regained control back onto the frontchute.

A well-timed move around two lapped cars then gave Reutzel the breathing room he needed with a pair of laps to go in order to preserve his $4,000 payday and his first ever win at WilliamsGrove Speedway.

The Texas driver’s margin of victory was .389 seconds. The win was his ninth of the season overall and the 18th All Stars win of his career.

McMahan, Ryan Smith and Adam Wilt completed the top five finishers.

The second main event saw Kyle Moody take control at the start over Adam Wilt and Ryan Smith while Dewease started fifth in the field thanks to a six inversion from the first feature finish.

The only caution flag of the race unfurled with four laps complete for a stopped Robbie Kendall.

Just before the yellow, Dewease had driven by McMahan for fourth but he was forced to go back for the restart due to the lap not being completed.

Both McMahan and Smith advanced on the restart for second and third respectively and Dewease was soon to follow, taking over fourth spot with six laps in the book.

After that, the Fayetteville flyer found his rhythym around the oval, mowing down Smith for second with eight laps to go before using a low move in the third and fourth corner with six laps to go to take the lead and run to the 97th win of his Williams Grove career worth $4,000.

Dewease noted in victory lane that he might not have been aggressive enough in the first main event.

The win was the 39th All Stars win of his career.

Smith rode home second by 1.943 seconds, followed by Moody, Wilt and Chad Trout.

Heats went to TJ Stutts, McMahan, Moody and Wilt with Cory Haas taking the B Main.

The twin dashes went to Reutzel and McMahan.

Fast time was set by Dale Blaney with a lap of 16.717 seconds.

LEVAN MACHINE AND TRUCK EQUIPMENT NIGHT BEATS ALL ODDS. . . . . .

AARON REUTZEL ROMPS IN THE RAIN FOR HODNETT CUP TRIUMPH, MIKE GULAR POCKETS $3,000 FOR MODIFIED CHECKERED FLAG AT GRANDVIEW

BECHTELSVILLES, PA (August 22, 2019) – It was a wet and wild night of racing at Grandview Speedway on Thursday night, as Levan Machine and Truck Equipment presented the Inaugural Hodnett Cup as part of the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series. Aaron Reutzel was the winner of the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions feature earning $5,000 as Mike Gular won the NASCAR 358 Modified main event.

An unexpected rainstorm popped up just after All Star Sprint Car time trials, delaying the action for nearly 2 hours. Track crews worked vigorously, and with the help of drivers and teams, heat race events rolled out just before 10 PM. With a good crowd on hand everyone was determined to make every effort to get the show in and they did.

“We just want to race,” Reutzel said graciously thanking everyone during victory lane ceremonies. “I can’t thank the fans and the track team enough. We were lucky – and some days I’d rather be lucky than good.”

Luck was definitely on Reutzel’s side, starting the 35-lap event from the front row alongside Nashville, TN’s Paul McMahan. McMahan attempted to slide in front of Reutzel on the initial green flag start – but couldn’t complete the pass.

“I’m just glad I was able to get out in front of Paul,” Reutzel explained. “If he was able to get me at the beginning this would’ve turned out differently.”

Reutzel powered away to full straight-a-way lead, while Danny Dietrich, Ryan Smith, and Ryan Taylor battled for the third position.

With drivers settling in on an ultra-fast race track, lapped cars proved to a real challenge for Reutzel, a Clute, TX-native – closing the gap between him and McMahan, as laps clicked away.

“The lapped cars weren’t really cooperating with me today,” Reutzel offered in victory lane. “The track was fast and that was challenging.”

While McMahan, aboard the No. 13 machine, was able to lessen the leader’s advantage, he would pressure Reutzel, but couldn’t get close enough to really challenge.

The yellow flag flew for the final time on lap 26 – a huge benefit to Reutzel – who charged on to claim his second consecutive NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill All Star Sprint Car victory. Reutzel earned $5,000 for his efforts and added his name to the Hodnett Cup.

McMahan settled for the second position, Danny Dietrich finished in third, Ryan Smith finished in fourth, and Ryan Taylor rounded out the top five.

Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Sprint Car Heats were swept by Pennsylvania drivers Ryan Taylor, Brock Zearfoss and Danny Dietrich. Aaron Reutzel set the quick time with 23 cars signing in for action.

Mike Gular of Harleysville, PA picked up the $3,000 win in the NASCAR 358 portion of the evening’s event.

Dylan Swinhart and Alex Yankowski made up the front row of the 30 lap feature event – but it was Gular who took the lead heading down the backstretch of the one-third-mile dirt track, with Duane Howard moving into the second position just one circuit later.

Gular and Howard dueled for the top spot for the first half of the event, before a lap 16 yellow flag slowed the action and reset the field.

A three-car battle for the win between Gular, Howard, and Jeff Strunk brought the event down to the wire.

Door-to-Door drag racing to the checkered flag, Gular picked up the win with Howard in second, Jeff Strunk in third, Craig VonDohren in fourth and Jared Umbenhauer in the fifth position.

Modified Heat races were won by Doug Manmiller, Jeff Strunk, and Dylan Swinehart. 29 NASCAR 358 Modifieds were signed in to compete.

The NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series returns on Saturday, October 19 with the Modifieds in a Big Block and Small Block Showdown, Sportsman, and MASS 305 Sprint Cars.

Mason Zeigler Captures First Career World of Outlaws Late Model Feature Win, Logan Wagner Grabs Fifth Sprint Car Win

By-Justin Snyder

PORT ROYAL, Pa- Usually when it comes to the Pennsylvania Posse vs the World of Outlaws rivalry, it’s all about Sprint Cars. However, Mason Zeigler brought home some bragging rights for the Late Models last night as the Chalk Hill, Pa native passed Ricky Weiss with three laps to go to claim his first-ever Morton Buildings World of Outlaws Late Model Series feature victory Saturday night at the Port Royal Speedway.

"We wanted to keep this one in PA tonight," said Zeigler, who won $10,000 for his efforts. "We've been working towards this for a long time and we got a lot of laps at this place, so I'm really excited to standing here."

Zeigler and Weiss, the leading rookie of the year with the Outlaws Late Models, led the field to the green with Zeigler jumping out to the early lead. It looked to be smooth sailing for Zeigler, as he was ripping around the top of the Speedway, with Weiss and fourth starting Brandon Sheppard in tow.

Zeigler first entered lap traffic on lap 11 and six laps later he got bottled up behind the lap car of Austin Hubbard and allowed Weiss to slide by on the bottom of the speedway in turn's 1 and 2.

Seven laps later Zeigler had regrouped and he pounced again. Still ripping around the top of the speedway, he used momentum exiting turn 2 to pass back by Weiss for the lead again.

"I was absolutely out of control out there and I was just trying my hardest to hit my marks," said Zeigler. "We gave him an opportunity there in lap traffic and I knew we had a car capable of getting him back."

The races only caution flew two laps later when Trevor Feathers got into the turn 3 outside guardrail and came to a slow on the inside of turn 4.

On the restart, it was Weiss striking back as he dove to the bottom of Zeigler in turn 1 and 2, pulling even with him as the powered down the backstretch. Zeigler would diamond turn 3 and 4 and pull back under Weiss to hold the lead on lap 29. However, Weiss used the momentum to slide back under Zeigler and regained the lead with 10-to go.

Over the next seven laps, Zeigler was sizing up Weiss, who also was looking for his first career Outlaws Late Model victory. With 3 to go, Zeigler pulled to the back bumper of Weiss coming to the flag stand. Zeigler tried a slidejob attempt in turns 1 and 2, only for Weiss to pull back ahead on the bottom of the backstretch.

But this allowed Zeigler to hit the high line in turn's 3 and 4. With Weiss rolling through the middle, Zeigler pulled ahead exiting turn 4 for good to take the lead for what would ultimately be the winning pass.

Zeigler would go on to take the checkered flag by 1.429 seconds for his second overall River Valley Builders Super Late Model triumph of 2019 at the Juniata County oval over Weiss, Sheppard, Shane Clanton and Rick Eckert

Gregg Satterlee, Chase Junghans, Dennis Erb Jr., Jason Covert and Darrell Lanigan rounded out the top 10.

"I knew he would have to be really good to get me and I knew if I just hit my marks we’d get him back," said Zeigler. "I was too good on the top and I wasn't about to let this one get away from us."

For Weiss, he was happy to continue what has been an excellent season, but was ultimately disappointed that he didn't get his elusive first win.

"I thought if I got out front I could run the top, but I just wasn't very good up there," said Weiss. "He was able to run us back down and ultimately he was just the better car tonight."

Sprint Cars

Logan Wagner led all 25-laps to capture his 5th overall Weikert's Livestock410 Sprint Car victory of 2019 at the Port Royal Speedway.

"I'm soo thankful to be with a team like this and have people who support me and make all this happen." said Wagner. "The car was excellent as it has been all year and I'm just happy to be in this position."

As a result of earning the most points after dual 6-lap heats, Wagner started on the pole with Dustin Baney on the outside front row. Wagner quickly jumped out the early lead over fourth starting AJ Flick and fifth starting Ryan Taylor.

The races only caution would fly on lap 4 as Tyler Bear got sideways in turn 3 and collected TJ Stutts as well. Both cars would be able to re-join the field.

When green flag racing resumed, it was Wagner again jumping out to a sizeable lead. Taylor, using the bottom of turn's 1 and 2 to slide past Flick, set his sights on Wagner as he moved into the second spot.

Wagner would enter lap traffic on lap 10. Before that, Wagner had been trying multiple lines of the speedway, with Taylor catching him and getting to his tail tank on several laps. With a .347 lead at the halfway mark, Wagner knew it was time to make his move.

"I was moving around trying to see where the car was working," said Wagner. "Once I saw Ryan show his nose, I knew it was time to go. I went back up top and just tried to hold on."

With Flick, Dylan Cisney and Jared Esh putting on an exciting battle for the third position behind them, Wagner began to stretch his lead again over the final laps. Ultimately, he would cross the checkered flag by a margin of 1.434 second lead over Taylor, Flick, Esh and Cisney.

Danny Varin, Tyler Reeser, Dan Shetler, Kyle Smith and Stutts completed the top 10.

"I just can’t say enough about this team and my crew," said Wagner, who expanded his series points lead to 400 points. "Even when we are not at our best, I feel like we can win races. Tonight showed that and we earned this one."

For Taylor, he was looking for his first win since the beginning of the season but was happy with the improvement his team continues to show.

"We found some stuff during the Dream Race and we been working at duplicating that and just being more consistent," said Taylor. "We held our own with Logan and not too many people have been able to do that with them this year. I just got to get better in lap traffic if I want to complete the deal. But I'm happy."

SMITH STORMS TO FIRST SELINSGROVE SPRINT CAR WIN OF SEASON; MILLER TAKES FIRST LIMITED LATE MODEL VICTORY; MOSER SCORES THIRD STRAIGHT PRO STOCK WIN; MITCH WINS THRILLING ROADRUNNER 20 CHAMPIONSHIP RACE

SELINSGROVE, Pa. -- Mark Smith of Sunbury returned from the NASCAR Truck Series wars to win his first Selinsgrove Speedway sprint car race of the season Saturday night.

The $2,000 win in the 25-lap feature was Smith’s 27th career in 358-360 sprint car racing at the speedway behind the wheel of the Mach 1 Chassis No. 1M.

Troy Miller of Tower City won his first career limited late model race at Selinsgrove in the division’s 20-lap main event after winning 21 pro stock events and one super late model race at the track in the past.

Brandon Moser of Middleburg scored his third straight and sixth of the year in the 12-lap pro stock race, while Brad Mitch of McClure won his second career Roadrunner 20 after a spirited three car battle.

Selinsgrove Speedway will present Foss Jewelers Championship Night at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 24, featuring the final points races of the season for the 360 sprint cars, super late models in the Grit House Route 35 Challenge Series, pro stocks, and roadrunners. Track gates will open at 5 p.m.

Colby Womer and Mark Smith blasted to the front of the sprint car feature with Smith nosing in front for the lead. The pair was followed by Mike Walter, Jason Shultz, and Derek Locke.

Smith, who just a few weeks ago competed in the nationally televised NASCAR Truck Series race at Eldora Speedway in Ohio, soon opened a huge lead.

Derek Locke, who has been fast all season, showed some speed and drove to the third spot and immediately challenged Womer for the runner up spot.

Smith went on to wire the field and win the 25-lap grind by three quarters of a lap over Womer, Locke, Kyle Reinhardt and Walter.

“This is an all new car,” Smith said. “We just finished up this afternoon. That’s why we got here late. It’s next year’s car, so we are going to park it and go back to the old car.”

Sprint car heats were won by Smith and Shultz.

Troy Miller shot to the lead in the limited late model race followed by his son Shaun, Jared Fulkroad, Tim Krape, and Tommy Slanker.

By the halfway mark, T. Miller, who had previously won four pro stock track championships, had built a comfortable lead over S. Miller.

T. Miller ran the rest of the distance unchallenged followed by S. Miller, Fulkroad, Slanker, and Mike Smith.

“The kid said, ‘you can’t run as good as you’ve been and not win one,’” Miller said referring to his son who won the last time the limited late models raced at Selinsgrove. “I knew Shaun was behind me, I could see it on the scoreboard but I didn’t know how close he was so I kept going.”

Limited late model heats went to T. Miller and Smith.

Brandon Moser rocketed to the front of the pro stock feature followed by Kyle Bachman, Corey Long, Shaun Lawton, and John Schoch.

Kruz Kepner slammed the third turn fence bringing out a lap two caution.

Moser ran to the finish winning his third in a row and sixth overall over Bachman, Long, Lawton, and Schoch.

Moser won the pro stock heat.

Keith Bissinger grabbed the early roadrunner lead followed by Will Brunson, Brad Mitch, Curtis Lawton, and Terry Kramer.

Bissinger was able to maintain a slight lead as Brunson and Mitch battled side by side for second. With Bissinger running high, Brunson ducked underneath coming off the fourth turn on lap six for the lead. The caution flag flew on the following lap for Jim Collier.

Lap nine saw Brunson drift high in the second turn. Bissinger and Mitch got by him but in the third turn Brunson ducked under the pair to regain the lead.

On a restart on the following lap Brunson and Bissinger traded slide jobs. Brunson maintained the lead while Mitch took over second from Bissinger.

Lap 12 saw another yellow as Lawton slowed on the track.

Brunson and Mitch had the fans on the edge of their seats racing side by side and exchanging slide jobs with Bissinger right behind. Lap 17 was disastrous for Brunson who lost a wheel and handed the lead to Mitch.

Brunson’s crew work feverishly and replaced the wheel returning Brunson to the race.

Mitch led the final three laps for the win over Bissinger, Dustin Snook, Bob Bussey, and Terry Kramer.

Snook and Mitch were victorious in the roadrunner heats.

Haas Claims Williams Grove Sprint Main, Sheppard Wins Outlaws Late Models

8/16/19

Mechanicsburg – Cory Haas claimed the 25-lap sprint car feature at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, holding off late race challenges by Ryan Smith for the $4,080 payday.

And in the World of Outlaws Late Models main event, polesitter Brandon Sheppared rocketed to the $10,000 victory.

Aboard the Trone No. 39, Haas also started on the pole of his main event and took the lead over Robbie Kendall on the first lap.

The first caution flag of the race came out on lap six, erasing a 2.199 second lead that Haas had built over Kendall and Smith.

Smith used the inside on the restart to get by Kendall for second in the third and fourth turns before another caution flag with nine down for a slowed Adrian Shaffer again bunched the field.

Freddie Rahmer, who started 12th in the field, drove from sixth to fourth on the restart, getting by Kody Lehman and Brian Montieth.

Montieth later withdrew from the event.

Haas was in control using the cushion and seemed to be home free for the win when a final yellow flag again slowed the pace, this time with three laps to go.

Smith kept the pressure on Haas when green replaced the yellow flag but Haas withstood the challenges to pick up his ninth career oval victory by .420 seconds.

It was the York drivers first speedway win of the season.

Smith crossed the line in second spot followed by Kendall, Rahmer and 13th starter Danny Dietrich.

Sixth through 10th went to Anthony Macri, Kyle Moody, Chad Trout, Kody Lehman and Rick Lafferty.

Heats went to Kendall and Haas.

Outlaws point leader Sheppard drew the pole for the 40-lap super late model main and he cruised to the victory uncontested, wiring the field for his 16th circuit win of the year.

Ricky Weiss drove into second on the second tour and would eventually lose the spot to Shane Clanton on the 25th lap.

Shappard withstood caution flag restarts on laps 20, 24 and 33 to pick up the win that was also the first of his career at Williams Grove Speedway.

Gregg Satterlee raced in fourth spot the entire race but fifth place was up for grabs late in the race as 17th starter Mason Zeigler hooked the cushion to ride into the spot.

Zeigler appeared headed for more when he suddenly slowed and fell backward with nine laps to go before finishing outside of the top 10.

Sheppard ended up taking the win by 2.254 seconds over Clanton, Weiss, Satterlee and Brian Birkhofer.

Sixth through 10th went to Chase Junghans, Jason Covert, Rick Eckert, Darrell Lanigan and Cade Dillard.

Dennis Erb Jr. dropped out while running in fifth spot with 16 laps to go.

Covert raced hard with both Satterlee and Erb at times at the front of the pack before fading.

Heats for the 30-car field went to Sheppard, Weiss and Covert with Gary Stuhler taking the B Main.

Fast time was set by Sheppard with a lap of 19.840 seconds.

ALL STAR 410 SPRINTS & NASCAR MODIFIEDS STORM THE HILL THURSDAY NIGHT, AUGUST 22 AS THUNDER ON THE HILL CONTINUES AT GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY

BECHTELSVILLE, PA – On Thursday, August 22 the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions Sprint Car series returns to Grandview Speedway to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series.

Presented by Levan Machine and Truck Equipment, the Hodnett Cup combines the 410 Sprint Cars in their final 2019 Grandview Speedway appearance – and the NASCAR 358 Modifieds, in an exciting double-header. Gates open at 5:00 PM and racing starts at 7:30 PM.

While the Thursday night event marks the return of the 410 Sprint Cars, and the return of Tony Stewart’s All Star Series, it will also be the Grandview return of 410 racer Ryan Smith.

One of the most popular drivers among fans, ‘The Kunkletown Kid’ was sidelined after and early-July incident at the Selinsgrove Raceway – and consequently missed the Thunder on the Hill Speedweek event. Returning in fine form a few weeks later, Smith set second-fast time at his first event back and has racked up consistent top-10 finishes in subsequent weeks.

However, Smith is still searching for his first NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series win, after coming close multiple times. Most famously in 2017, when the driver challenged Kyle Larson for the top-spot before a late race attempted pass sent him flipping into turn three.

The August 22 event at Grandview is doubly important to the Kunkletown, PA racer. In late 2018, Smith was tapped to pilot the Mike Heffner-owned machine previously piloted by Greg Hodnett – the namesake of the event -- who died in a racing incident in Central Pennsylvania.

“Greg was one of my idols growing up,” Smith said in a team release announcing his hiring. “I have huge shoes to fill.”

Smith holds eight wins with the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Stars, and hopes to lead the Red Robin Gourmet Burgers/Heffner Racing No. 72 machine to Grandview Speedway victory lane.

Tickets for Thursday, August 22 are $30 for adults, $10 for children age 6 to 11, and free for kids under 6. Pit admission is $35 and no license is required. Advanced ticket holder can access the general admission seating at 4:30 PM, thirty minutes before tickets go on sale.

Advanced tickets are available by calling 443-513-4456. Guests may pick-up their tickets and pay for them the night of the event after 3:30 PM. Please leave a message with your name, and the number of tickets you are requesting.

Grandstand gates open at 5:00 PM, with racing starting at 7:30 PM.

Greg Hodnett collected nine Thunder on the Hill Racing Series wins at the Grandview Speedway – sitting third on the all-time win list. The winner of the event will receive the Hodnett Cup -- fabricated from one of Greg’s many trophies, a base was added where names of future event winners will be engraved. As a perpetual trophy, it will be available on race day for Victory Lane celebration, the winner’s name will be added along with the event date, and the trophy will be on display year-round at the Eastern Museum of Motor Racing at the Latimore Valley Fairgounds.

LINCOLN SPEEDWAY

Abbottstown, PA

MATT CAMPBELL LANDS IN VICTORY LANE AT LINCOLN FOR FIRST TIME IN A 410 SPRINT; Ashley Cappetta Picks Up First 358 Win; Ray Cable Jr. Continues Family Legacy with Mid Atlantic Modified Win

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Saturday, August 17 (7:30pm) Valley Supply 30 for 410 Sprints + 358 Sprints | York County Racing Club Night

Saturday, August 24 (7:30pm) All-Star Circuit of Champions | 410 Sprints + Central PA Legends

Saturday, August 31 (7:30pm) Bob Leiby Memorial | 410 Sprints* + 358 Sprints + Extreme Stocks + FIREWORKS (*Final points race for 410 Sprints)

Abbottstown, PA (August 10, 2019) – Campbell has six career wins at the track in the 358 division and was still searching for his first 410 victory at Lincoln.

After mechanical issues last week, track officials didn’t know if the Campbell race team would make it back to the track on Saturday. Matt Campbell and his team are running a limited schedule this year, but they put their big track motor in the #16 machine to race at Lincoln on Saturday night.

To say the plan worked would be an understatement.

Campbell and Justin Whittall shared the front row of the 25-lap feature. Campbell was your race leader coming out of turn 2 on the first lap with Billy Dietrich moving into second. Chase Dietz got around Whittall to take third.

Alan Krimes, who had an impressive run in his heat race working his way through the field without a front wing, was running fifth after starting seventh.

Dietz went to work on Dietrich for the second spot.

After falling back at the start of the race Landon Myers worked his way back up front to battle Krimes for fifth and takes the position.

Campbell made easy work of a lone lapped car on lap 4 as the racing behind him heated up.

Brian Montieth entered the battle for fifth after Krimes took it back from Myers. Montieth went into the night 10 points ahead of Krimes in the overall point standings, so every position counts as they battle for the track championship with the season winding down.

Krimes pulled away from Montieth and Myers to let them battle for sixth. Krimes had his eyes set on Whittall and the fourth spot.

Campbell entered lapped traffic on lap 8.

Ryan Smith, who just got back behind the wheel of the #72 machine last week after crashing at Selinsgrove during Speedweek, was up to eighth. It was a three-way battle for the spot as both Brandon Rahmer and Cory Haas were in striking distance.

At the halfway point of the race Campbell held a 1.6 second lead over Dietrich.

Dietrich went to work reeling Campbell in and had cut his lead to half a second on lap 17 when the caution came out for Krimes who was running fifth at the time. Krimes took a ride on the hook back to the pits ending his night.

Campbell led Dietrich, Dietz, Whittall and Myers on the restart.

Dietrich went to the bottom with Campbell going to the top of the track on the restart. Campbell held onto the lead despite Dietrich getting a nose under the leader in turns 3 and 4.

Montieth passed Whittall and Myers in one move to take fourth on lap 18.

Campbell was pulling away from the field with a nearly 2 second lead with five laps to go.

Myers and Dietz battled for third behind Dietrich as he pulled away trying to catch Campbell.

Campbell held on to add his name to the Lincoln record books with his first 410 win at the track. In only his second week back at the track, Dietrich earned a second-place finish. Myers finished third and Dietz crossed the line fourth. Montieth rounded out the top five.

Heat winners were Kyle Moody, Billy Dietrich and Brian Montieth.

Ashley Cappetta Picks Up First 358 Win

Another name will be added to the Lincoln record books as Ashley Cappetta won her first 358 race at the track on Saturday night.

Cappetta started on the pole of the 20-lap feature with Brett Strickler to her outside.

There was trouble at the start of the race as Chris Frank got over the left rear of CJ Tracy going into turn 1 and flipped up the track bringing out the red. Current point leader Doug Hammaker was also involved but was able to rejoin the field.

The field lined up for a complete restart.

Cappetta led the field into turn 1 with Dylan Norris and Strickler battling for the second spot with Norris taking the position.

Cody Fletcher got by Strickler to take third. Tyler Ross went to work on Strickler for fourth and took it coming out of turn 2 on lap 3.

Ross set his sight on Fletcher for third and reeled him in to take it. Next on Ross’ check list was Norris who was running second.

Norris was racing around the bottom while Ross was running the cushion on the high side of the track. Ross made the top work and took second from Norris on lap 7.

Ross then went to work on reeling in Cappetta.

The caution came out on lap 9 for Kody Kinser as he came to a stop on the front stretch just as Cappetta was getting ready to enter lapped traffic. Kinser, Steve Kinser’s cousin, Kelly Kinser’s son, was in town from Indiana to race the New Jersey based 5z machine.

Cappetta led Ross, Norris, Fletcher and Strickler on the restart. Cappetta went to the bottom with Ross sticking with the top line around the track.

The yellow flag waved again on lap 10 as Jordan Strickler stopped with his nose into the guardrail on the back stretch.

Cappetta led the field again to the cone for a single-file restart. Norris got his nose under Ross going into turn 3 but Ross held the position.

Having success running the cushion, Ross stuck to the top line but Cappetta was making the bottom work around the track.

Not making much ground on the leader Ross tried the bottom on lap 12 to no avail and went back to running the cushion on the next lap as Cappetta pulled away.

Ross tagged the wall in turn 2 on lap 18 allowing Norris to get by for second.

Cappetta crossed the line first to win her first 358 feature at the track. Norris held onto second and Ross finished third. Matt Findley was fourth and Brett Strickler completed the top five.

Heat winners were Matt Findley, Cody Fletcher and Steve Owings.

Ray Cable Jr. Continues Family Legacy with Mid Atlantic Modified Win

Gary Warehime started on the pole with Jerry Foster to his outside. The caution came out on the start of the 20-lap feature for debris on the front stretch. Jacob Whitt stopped on the back stretch after losing a drive shaft on the front stretch. Andy Bosley went to the pits under caution after he hit the drive shaft and dropped oil around the racetrack.

Warehime and Foster lined up the field for a complete restart.

Warehime and Foster raced wheel to wheel down the back stretch with Foster leading lap 1 by a nose at the flag stand.

Haley Kaiser drove up to second and took the lead from Warehime at the flag stand on lap 4.

Kaiser started to pull away from the field as Kable worked on Foster for second. Kable got the spot coming out of turn four on lap 6.

Brad Kling, who won the feature the last time the series was at the track, was up to third from his sixth starting spot.

Kable was closing the gap between him and Kaiser and got a nose under her coming out of turn 4 on lap 9.

It only took Kable one more lap to take the lead. He beat Kaiser to the flag stand by a nose length for the top spot at the halfway point.

With Kaiser running second, Kling went to work and took the position.

The top three were pulling away from the rest of the field with five laps to go. The leaders entered lapped traffic with four laps remaining. Kling caught Kable in lapped traffic with two laps to go.

Two laps weren’t enough time for Kling to make a move. Kable held on to win and Kling crossed the line second. Kaiser finished third. Justin Cullum was fourth and Foster rounded out the top five.

Heat winners were Jason Brookover, Brad Kling and Justin Cullum.

This Saturday, August 17, Lincoln Speedway is back in action with Valley Supply 30 for the 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints and Wingless Super Sportsman. Racing starts at 7:30PM with pit gates opening at 5:00PM and grandstand gates opening at 5:30PM.

All Stars To Invade Williams Grove For Gunn Memorial Twin 20s August 23

8/11/19

Mechanicsburg - The All Stars Circuit of Champions Sprints are headed to Williams Grove Speedway, coming up on Friday, August 23 at 7:30 pm.

Presented by Union Quarries, the All Stars will be at Williams Grove to compete in the annual Jack Gunn Memorial, run again this season as twin 20 lap mains for the Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint cars.

An early season All Stars invasion at Williams Grove fell victim to rain so the August 23 show will be the first of the year at the track for the touring stars.

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.

The All Stars will be led into Williams Grove by series point leader Aaron Reutzel of Clute, Texas, who has six wins under this belt on the circuit this season and the pole in the recently completed Knoxville Nationals.

Reutzel is going for his second All Stars circuit title in a row in 2019.

Perennial series champion Dale Blaney rides second in the season point standings while upstart Californian Cory Eliason holds down the third spot in tour points.

Last year in All Stars Jack Gunn Memorial action, Freddie Rahmer and Jim Siegel scored the wins in twin 20s action, holding the All Stars scoreless at Williams Grove throughout history.

The All Stars first raced at Williams Grove in 1970 and no bonafide touring All Star has ever won an All Stars race at the oval.

The locals known as the Pennsylvania Posse hold a perfect 34-0 record of victory against the touring stars as they prepare to take on Williams Grove Speedway again.

After the August 23 racing program, the All Stars Circuit of Champions will return to Williams Grove on Friday, September 20 to contest the make up Tommy Hinnershitz Memorial.

First run in 1983, the Gunn Memorial honors late Williams Grove promoter Jack Gunn.

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.

Gunn was feted nationally as 1979 Promoter of the Year.

MILEY SCORES LATE MODEL SHOWDOWN OVER STAR-STUDDED FIELD;
ADAMS TAKES FIRST CAREER SELINSGROVE 305 SPRINT CAR WIN;
MOSER & JONES RACE TO PRO STOCK & ROADRUNNER CHECKERS

SELINSGROVE, Pa. -- Jared Miley of Pittsburgh extended his points lead in the Ultimate Northeast Late Model Series with his $3,000 win in Saturday night’s 30-lap Showdown on Sand Hill at Selinsgrove Speedway.

The victory was Miley’s second of the season in the series and his first career at Selinsgrove Speedway. He became the 11th different winner in 12 races this season in the super late model division, making it one of the most competitive seasons in late model history at the track.

Jason Covert of York was the night’s fast qualifier over the star-studded 33-car field with a lap time of 19.255.

Lebanon’s Devin Adams won the 20-lap PASS/IMCA 305 sprint car feature.

Brandon Moser of Middleburg won the 15-lap pro stock race and Jake Jones of Hunlock Creek was the winner of the 12-lap roadrunner race.

Selinsgrove Speedway is back in action at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 17, with the 360 sprint cars, limited late models, pro stocks, and annual Roadrunner 20 championship race. Track gates will open at 5 p.m.

Dylan Yoder and Greg Satterlee led the field to the start of the Ultimate Northeast Late Model Series feature, with Satterlee rocketing to the lead. Jason Covert, Gene Knaub, and Jared Miley were in the top five.

Satterlee, who won on Friday at Path Valley Speedway, saw a nice lead wiped out on lap eight when Billy Wampler stopped on the speedway.

Using the Delaware restarts, Satterlee chose the outside and maintained the lead when the race resumed.

Miley and Jeff Rine found something on the bottom of the track and moved into the top five. The yellow flag flew again on lap 10 for debris on the speedway.

Yoder drifted high on the restart and Miley, Covert, Rine, and Shaun Jones got by.

Miley turned on the afterburners, went after Satterlee, and blew by him coming off turn four on lap12.

Track points leader Coleby Frye slowed with a blown tire on lap 22 wiping out a sizable points lead going into the night.

Satterlee pressured Miley high and Yoder drove back into third. With five to go Miley was able to gain some breathing room but a third turn spin tightened the field for a green-white-checkered finish.

Miley led the rest of the distance winning over Satterlee, Yoder, Cosner, and Jason Covert.

“I was nervous on that last restart, “ Miley said in Victory Lane. “We had four or five of the best drivers on the east coast here and to beat them is amazing. This is an all new car tonight but we learned a lot from before and put that setup in the car.”

Satterlee, Miley, Knaub, and Yoder won the late model heats. Tim Wilson won the consolation.

Devin Adams led the first lap of the 305 sprint car feature but all eyes were on Garrett Bard who rode the rail to second. Dylan Proctor, Zach Newlin, and Jaremi Hanson followed.

Bard, a relative newcomer to sprint car racing, challenged Adams after a few restarts but Adams was able to horsepower away to maintain the lead. Newlin soon challenged and passed Bard for second.

Jake Waters stopped on the front stretch to bring out a lap 13 caution.

Newlin and Hanson started a battle for second with Hanson taking over on lap 15 as Ken Duke moved forward to the fourth spot.

Hanson, using the high groove, put the Ort Racing 36 sprinter beside Adams but could not get past for the lead.

Adams won by .597 seconds over Hanson, Newlin, Duke, and Bard.

“I knew I was going to have to deal with Duke, sooner or later,” Adams said of the winner of the last two events at the speedway. “Each time the caution came out there was somebody different in second and I kept looking for him.”

305 sprint car heats went to Bard, Adams, and Kenny Heffner.

Brandon Moser grabbed the early lead in the pro stock feature followed by, Kyle Bachman, Corey Long, Shaun Lawton, and Jason Smith followed.

Moser opened a big lead as Bachman and Lawton battled for second.

Moser led the entire distance for his second consecutive win followed by Bachman, Lawton, John Schoch, and Corey Long.

The pro stock heat went to Corey Long.

Dustin Snook drove away from the traffic jam at the front of the roadrunner feature followed by Bob Bussey, Jake Jones, Will Brunson, and Tom Underwood.

Jones used a restart to draw even with Snook as Curtis Lawton joined the party. Jones slid into the lead on lap five as Snook and Lawton made contact Keith Bissinger challenged the pair.

Jones led the rest of the distance for his fourth win of the season over Snook, Lawton, Underwood and Smith Cope.

Snook and Jones were victorious in the roadrunner heats.

PORT ROYAL SPEEDWAY

August 3, 2019

AJ FLICK WINS $12,000 IN LIVING LEGENDS DREAM RACE FOR THE SPRINT CARS
AND DYLAN YODER TOPS LATE MODELS

PORT ROYAL, PA - AJ Flick came out on top of a spectacular battle with
Jared Esh to win the Living Legends Dream Race for the Weikert’s
Livestock Sprint Cars Saturday night at Port Royal Speedway.

Flick, of Apollo, Pa., earned the $10,000 base pay, plus $2,000 for
winning his semi-feature as well. Over $55,000 in purse money was
handed out to the Sprint cars -the largest in Pennsylvania for an
unsanctioned race.

In the 25-lap main event for the River Valley Builders Super Late
Models, it was point leader Dylan Yoder, of Middleburg, extending his
advantage with his third win of the season.

Esh had driven to the front and was in control of the 30-lap main
event when the red flag flew with 21 laps completed.

The teams were allowed to refuel and make small adjustments at this time.

Flick was in second for the restart and went after Esh. The two
drivers traded slide job after slide job at each end of the speedway.
Flick did nip Esh at the line for the lead at one point, but Esh kept
getting back around him.

Esh turned off the second turn cushion driving inside Flick securing
the lead off turn two, but another yellow flag and a right rear tire
going down was too much to overcome.

Flick got a great run off the turn two cushion and down the
backstretch blasting under Esh as they raced into turn three.

From there, it was all Flick as he drove away to the win. Esh was
trying to hold onto second. He lost the spot to Danny Dietrich and
then fended off Lance Dewease to finish third.

“We just won 12 grand, holy crap,” Flick said. “I wanted to win the
(Greg) Hodnett race more, but this makes up for some blown right rear
tires there’s no doubt about that. With the tire issues we’ve had, I
tried to pace myself. I didn’t want to lose a tire or a racecar. The
crew came out on the red and told me all the tires were fine. I knew I
could go after it.”

Flick needed some good racing luck to go along with his fast racecar.

“This is amazing,” Flick said. “We’ve been so close so many times. I
didn’t want to be a one hit wonder. For it to come on a night like
this and the way we were able to do it. It means so much. I know so
much of it is luck, but we’ve got a good enough racecar and the team
is confident enough right now that we’re able to put the pieces
together when we need to.”

Esh was coming off his first career Port Royal win two weeks ago.

“So close,” Esh said. “We tried to air it up and take the bleeders
out so it didn’t bleed any air out of it. We hoped for the best. I
thought we were going to be okay until that other caution. The heat
would have kept it up, but with that caution we ran around there for a
little bit. As we were getting towards the end there, I was getting
tighter and tighter and I could feel it rolling over and I was just
trying to hold on.”

“That was a fun race,” Esh continued. “Kudos to (AJ). He’s had the
same uphill battle we’ve had with tires. That was cool to see him get
a win, but 10 grand would have been awesome. When you can still get a
good finish, keep it in one piece, and have some fun racing, you can’t
beat that.”

Polesittter TJ Stutts got the early lead as fifth starter Esh quickly
moved into second.

Stutts began lapping cars with Esh closing quickly. They were racing
around the top and were close in turns one and two as they tried to
lap cars.

Esh ducked under Stutts entering turn three sliding into the lead.
Stutts spun out in turn four bringing out the yellow.

Flick started third, but dropped to fifth in the early laps. He was
back up to third for the restart and passed Blane Heimbach for second.
Seventh starter Danny Dietrich raced into third.

Heimbach went back after Dietrich and they swapped third place at both
ends of the track before Dietrich secured it.

Esh had a straight away lead with 12 laps completed as the leaders all
raced around a very fast cushion. Logan Wagner was up to fourth from
13th starting spot and Lance Dewease into fifth from 15th.

Esh’s lead was 1.676 seconds at the half-way point.

Wagner caught Dietrich and they threw sliders at each other in the
corners as well with Wagner taking over third.

Esh led Flick by 1.770 with Wagner, Dietrich and Dewease following
with 10 to go.

The red flag stopped the race with nine laps left. Cory Haas blew a
tire on the frontstretch and Tyler Reeser drove over some of the
debris causing him to lose control and hit the end of the wall at the
turn one track exit. All drivers were okay.

Teams were allowed to refuel and make minor adjustments at this time.

“Phil (Long) made a good call for giving the car a little bit more
drive,” Flick said. “Everything worked well.”

Esh and Flick’s wild battle for the lead ensued.

Esh controlled the restart, Flick ducked under him in turn three. They
were side-by-side off turn four down the frontstretch with Flick
leading the lap. Esh took the lead back with a turn one slider as
Wagner watched closely from third. They traded the lead again in three
and four. Esh led again as Flick tried another slider. Esh turned down
off the turn two cushion securing the lead for the moment and went low
into turn three taking Flick’s line away.

A yellow interrupted the incredible battle with six laps to go.

Flick got a great run off turn two and drove by Esh entering turn
three. Flick was gone from there as Esh tried to hold onto second.

Wagner tried a slider on Esh with Dietrich right there. Esh turned
down off the cushion again driving between Wagner and Dietrich. Wagner
lost some momentum in the chaos as Dietrich got by Esh for second.

Flick’s final margin of victory was 1.5 seconds over Dietrich with Esh
holding onto third with a right rear tire going flat. Dietrich earned
$5,600 and Esh earned $4,000.

Dewease and Wagner completed the top five. Heimbach, Landon Myers,
Steve Buckwalter, Mike Wagner and TJ Stutts rounded out the top 10.

Joey Gravino (Sprint cars) and Ken Dickson (Late Models) were honored
this year Living Legends.

Dietrich set quick time over the 32-car field with a lap of 15.750.

In the first 16-lap semi-feature, it was Flick scoring the $2,000 win.
Myers, Stutts, Dietrich and Dylan Cisney completed the top five. Haas,
Wagner, Dewease, Jeff Miller and Nicole Bower rounded out the top 10.
These drivers locked into the main event with the top three redrawing.

In the second 16-lap semi-feature, Esh passed Heimbach for the lead as
they raced under the white flag. He led the final lap for the win.
Heimbach, Justin Whittall, Buckwalter and Reeser completed the top
five. Mike Wagner, Mark Smith, Ryan Taylor, Tyler Bear and Dan Shetler
rounded out the top 10.

Smith won the B-main after ducking back into the pits before the
second semi started and then tagging the rear. Rick Lafferty was the
25th starter after receiving the fan vote.

Jeff Rine started on the pole and raced into the lead to start the
25-lap main event for the super late models. Point leader Dylan Yoder
was quickly into second with Andy Haus third.

Rine controlled the pace with Yoder slowly closing. Yoder tried the
bottom lane to get around Rine, but couldn’t get quite enough drive
off the corners.

With Yoder working under him, Rine began to move around the race track
and found some speed.

Yoder’s car continued to get fast and after following Rine around the
top, they were side-by-side down the backstretch and into the third
turn. Yoder came out on top as they raced off turn four completing lap
18 as the leader.

He pulled away from there as Andy Haas took second from Rine over the
final laps.

Yoder won by 2.738 seconds earning $2,500 for the victory and has a
big 350-point lead in the standings over second place finisher Haus.

“This thing is a lot of fun to drive,” Yoder said. “I got into the
wall a couple times, but luckily everything held together. Rine left
me just enough room to squeeze around the outside. Once he moved up,
he was pretty quick and I didn’t know if I’d be able to get him. He
tried the middle one time and I had a good run and got around him. He
always races me clean and I try to do the same back.”

Rine, Michael Norris and Chad Myers completed the top five. Tim Smith
Jr., Gary Stuhler, Nick Dickson, Mike Lupfer and Gene Knaub rounded
out the top 10.

Heat races for the 20 late models were won by Rine and Lupfer.

KISSINGER SCORES SECOND 360 SPRINT CAR VICTORY OF SEASON; DEFENDING LATE MODEL CHAMP BERNHEISEL GETS FIRST WIN OF YEAR; MOSER & BRUNSON TAKE PRO STOCK & ROADRUNNER CHECKERS

SELINSGROVE, Pa. Ryan Kissinger of Bloomsburg found something in the top groove of the fast and smooth Selinsgrove Speedway Saturday night to win his second 360 sprint car race of the season. Bryan Bernheisel of Lebanon found the fast lane around the top too and used it for his first win of the year in the super late model main event.

Kissinger earned $2,000 for his fifth career sprint car win at the track behind the wheel of the Sunbury Motors Ford-powered No. 66. For Bernheisel, the $2,500 victory was his ninth career at the Snyder County oval.

Middleburg drivers Brandon Moser and Will Brunson won the 15-lap pro stock and 12-lap roadrunner features, respectively.

Selinsgrove Speedway is back in action at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 10, with the Northeast Ultimate Super Late Model Series, PASS/IMCA 305 sprint cars, pro stocks, and roadrunners on Fairfield Chevrolet Night. Track gates will open at 5 p.m.

Thomas Radivoy rocketed to the lead of the sprint car race over Jake Hummel, Ryan Kissinger, Adam Carberry and Kyle Reinhardt. On the next lap Kissinger blew by Radivoy and Carberry followed into third. The caution flew on lap three when Mike Walter slowed on the speedway.

Carberry used the restart to take second and Jason Shultz to third.

Kissinger looked unstoppable until the final lap when the red flag came out. David Quackenbush flipped wildly end over end and out of the speedway in turn four. Quackenbush was uninjured.

Kissinger took off after the restart with Schultz shooting to the inside of turn one. Shultz tried again in turn three but Kissinger held on for his second win of the season. Reinhardt, Derek Locke and Cody Keller were the top five finishers.

“I knew I could run the top wide open with very little brake,” Kissinger said. “When Schultz and Reinhardt are on your tail you have to hit everything just right.”

Sprint car heats were won by Carberry and Hummel.

Brett Schadel starting on the front row was the early late model feature leader. Hayes Mattern, Bryan Bernheisel, Donnie Schick, and Kenny Trevitz followed.

Jake Buck stopped on the track on lap two and the yellow came out slowing the field.

Mattern tested Schadel on the restart trading paint in the fourth turn. Lapped traffic soon came into play with Mattern getting beside Schadel but he was able to hold on to the lead.

Schadel again hit lapped traffic with ten to go but this time things went smoother and he cleared it quickly.

Danny Snyder slowed in turn four bringing out the caution again.

Bryan Bernheisel executed a picture perfect slide job to take the lead on the restart in turn one but the race again stalled on lap 22 when Meade Hahn, Jim Bernheisel and Trevitz got together in the first turn after Bernheisel’s engine reportedly blew and the others spun in the oil.

Mattern pulled up beside Schadel and tried to get by when the pair touched leaving Schadel backward in the fourth turn. Schadel was able to continue.

Mattern tried a slider on the restart, got high allowing Schick and Frye to get by. “I tried to run him clean but we may have made some contact,” Bernheisel said. “It’s way too late for this to be the first win of the season.”

Bernheisel took his first win of the season over Schick, Frye, Trevitz and Mattern.

Late model heats went to, Bryan Bernheisel, Trevitz and Mattern.

Kyle Bachman blasted to the lead in the pro stock race followed by Shaun Lawton, Brandon Moser, Corey Long, and AJ Stroup.

Moser slid to the outside getting by Lawton and Bachman for the lead on the second lap. As Lawton and Bachman battled for second, Moser took off. Action slowed on lap seven when Lawton rolled to a stop on the backstretch.

Moser and Bachman took off on the restart with Bachman testing the high side of the speedway but it was Moser picking up the win. Bachman, Long, John Schoch and Jason Smith rounded out the top five.

The pro stock heat was won by Moser.

Dustin Snook led the first lap of the roadrunner race with Keith Bissinger on his tail. Will Brunson, Smith Cope, and Brad Mitch were in tow.

Brunson took second when Bissinger tried an outside pass and slid high. Bissinger and Snook made contact in turn four and Brunson slid through the middle for the lead. Curtis Lawton spun and brought out the yellow.

Bissinger continued to stalk Brunson but soon had to contend with Mitch on his tail. Smith Cope and Snook spun in turn two bringing out the caution again.

Mitch took over second on the restart and was all over Brunson. The pair exchanged slide jobs at both ends of the track. Coming for the checkered flag Mitch’s car slowed and stopped on the speedway.

Mitch and Snook won the roadrunner heats.

Rahmer Claims Billy Kimmel Memorial At Williams Grove Friday

8/2/19

Mechanicsburg – Freddie Rahmer of Salfordville won the Billy Kimmel Memorial for 410 sprint cars at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, taking $3,800 for his fourth oval win of the season.

Alan Krimes and Chad Trout won the heat races and shared the front row for the 25-lap main event.

Trout grabbed the lead at the drop of the green but Krimes shot by him off of turn two, taking over the top spot.

Freddie Rahmer then moved into second and Cory Haas into third.

The yellow flag flew with four laps completed for track point leader Danny Dietrich as his car was sitting the wrong direction against the third turn fence with a flat left rear tire and other damage.

Dietrich was towed to the pits and he was done for the night.

Rahmer ducked inside of Krimes in turn one on the restart but Krimes’momentum off of the cushion kept him out front and then Cory Haas challenged Rahmer for second in the third corner but to no avail.

The yellow flag again unfurled with seven laps completed.

Krimes again controlled the restart and pulled away from Rahmer, Haas and Kyle Moody as they blasted around the cushion.

In traffic, Krimes had to duck off of the cushion to miss the slower car of Barry Shearer entering turn three and Rahmer was then able to close at the halfway point.

Krimes then again had to go low to lap a car in turns three and four as did Rahmer while still keeping pace with the leader with eight laps to go.

Rahmer tried the low side in turns three and four on lap 18 and apparently liked what he found in the low groove because at the other end of the track on lap 19 he ducked low on Krimes entering turn one and slid in front of him to take the lead.

Once in front, Rahmer quickly pulled away to a comfortable advantage and was firmly in control when a two-car tangle on the frontstretch between Anthony Macri and Robbie Kendall as they raced for position inside the top 10 brought out the red flag.

Due to the severity of the accident, the race was called official with 23 laps complete and Rahmer was declared the winner over Krimes, Cory Haas, Brian Montieth and Kyle Moody.

Chad Trout, Rodney Westhafer, Jeff Halligan, Kody Lehman and TJ Stutts rounded out the top 10.

The 25-lap 358 sprint feature was postponed and will be rescheduled for a later date.

Twin 358 sprint heats went to Doug Hammaker and Dylan Norris.

Joe Gravino- Your 2019 Sprint Car Living Legends Dream Race Honoree

By- Justin Snyder

PORT ROYAL, Pa- Legend- An extremely famous or notorious person, especially in a particular field

Over the years, many of legends have passed through the Central Pennsylvania racing scene. Most of them have been honored at the Port Royal Speedway in the 12 Living Legends Dream Race’s that have been held since 2007.

Keith Kauffman, Greg Hodnett, Lynn Paxton and Jim Nace to name a few. All these drivers won races all over the country. Some of them are National Sprint Car Hall of Famer’s. Many of them fill up the record books in the history of “The Speed Palace”.

But along with those drivers, there are also what I like to refer as the everyday legends. The guys who worked nine-to-five jobs and used the little money they made to get to the track. The driver’s who hand painted their cars and who often were just a car in the field.

They were never racing for national acclaim and they would never taste the success many of their peers would. No big paychecks and no fame and fortune. They were just racing because they loved it and whether they won the race or didn’t qualify, it was about the sport and the fans.

If you were not a regular fan or a faithful follower, you might not even know they existed outside of the friendly confines of the Speedway.

Joe Gravino is one of those drivers. Always steady and always fast, but never exactly reaching the peek of the sport. A Body and Paint shop owner by day, Sprint Car driver by Saturday night.

When the word legend gets thrown around, by definition, Gravino likely is not the first person that comes to mind. But in the hearts of the fans and his fellow drivers, he is.

This is why Port Royal Speedway is proud to honor Gravino as the 2019 Sprint Car representative at the 13th Annual Living Legends Dream Race Saturday night.

“I honestly thought to myself, they really must be running out of people to celebrate,” said Gravino jokingly. “I had a long career and I ran pretty decent up there, but I never was the guy who sat the racing world on fire. It’s really cool that they are doing this for a guy like me.”

Sitting 37th on the career win list at the Speedway, Gravino captured 10-career victories at the Juniata County oval. Perhaps his biggest career victory came in 1989 when he picked up the opening day checkered flag.

Not too bad for a guy who got his start in racing motorcycles in 1968. After a few years of competing on 2-wheels, Gravino went to 4-wheels and into the Super Sportsman ranks at the Silver Springs Speedway with his good friend Maynard Yingst in 1972.

Five years later in 1977 he decided to make the move to 410-Sprint Cars. Running his own operation, fans grew to recognize his yellow Polaris sponsored #28. He didn’t have a ton of sponsors and help, but he had a drive to win and succeed.

“Back then money was hard to come by and we made do with the help we had.” Said Gravino. “We had a local Polaris distributor on the car and Harold Hank would help me. But being the relative unknown I was, we couldn’t get big sponsors and we only really ran one night a week.”

One night, Gravino decided to venture to the Port Royal Speedway instead of his regular stomping grounds of Selinsgrove Speedway. A bit smaller than Selinsgrove, but carrying just as much speed, he fell in love with the track.

He also fell in love with the fans.

“I came out to Port Royal one night at the insistence of my buddy Mitch Smith and I just fell in love with the place,” said Gravino. “The management treated me great, but the fans really are what stood out. Some of my fondest memories were of them meeting me in victory lane and getting pictures.”

While he did win races over time, the biggest thorn in his attempts at track success was Keith Kauffman. A multi-time Track Champion and the all-time leading feature winner in the history of the Port Royal Speedway, Kauffman was the man to beat. And Gravino relished every opportunity to best his nemesis.

“I think I finished second in the points four years in a row thanks to Keith and if he hadn’t been there, I think we’d have won quite a bit more,” said Gravino with a slight chuckle. “We didn’t win a whole lot, but when we did, the first question out of my mouth was ‘Where did Keith finish’? I loved beating him when we could.”

One of his favorite accomplishments came at the famed Williams Grove Speedway. Due to a busy work schedule and limited funds, Gravino rarely ran 2-nights a week. But when the opportunity presented itself, Gravino loved running at ‘The Grove’. He was recently reminded that he once won 2 weeks in a row at the Mechanicsburg, Pa. speedway. With 3-career victories there and limited track time, it was something that brought him a lot of joy to go back-to-back.

“I didn’t run at Williams Grove very often. Financially I just couldn’t do it two nights a week,” said Gravino. “To get one win there ever is a big deal. So, to get two in a row is something I’m really proud of. My name is in the record books and that’s something I’ll remember forever.”

In 1987 Gravino moved on from racing his own equipment and he teamed up once again with Maynard Yingst for 2-years. It was a bit of a full-circle moment for Gravino and it was nice to be able to drive for an owner and not handle all the bills and stress of owning a car.

Yingst got out of owning a car after 1988 and Gravino moved over to a few more short-lived rides. Ironically it was a young upstart named Lance Dewease who replaced him in his final season of driving in 1990 in a number 4 car with owners from New Jersey. Dewease won the Living Legends race in 2018 and recently was inducted into the Sprint Car Hall of Fame.

“I always have said they went from bad to great,” said Gravino of Dewease. “I still read the paper and see his name as the guy sitting in victory lane, so I’d say they made the right move after all these years.”

Gravino left the Sprint Car world to return to working in his body and paint shop in Pennbrook, Pa. He rarely attends the races anymore, but still has various pictures from his career on the walls and an old driver’s suit that was burned up after a motor failure at Port Royal.

The last time he visited a track was in 2017 at Port Royal and he was amazed at the progress of the track and how far it has come since his days of racing.

“A lot has changed. I mean honestly it’s a completely different place then what I remember,” said Gravino. “What they have done is truly special and they have turned the speedway into a national treasure.”

But while the place looks different, it still feels like home. He’s looking forward to coming back for the night and talking with old friends and seeing familiar faces form the past. He’s most excited about seeing the fans.

“The last time I was there I was sitting in the bleachers in turn four and a lady looked over and said ‘Oh my, you’re Joe Gravino’,” laughed Gravino. “I couldn’t believe she recognized me and that’s really cool to know I made an impact.”

At 74 years old, Gravino doesn’t have the itch to return to racing. He’s put that part of his life to rest and he’s enjoying life living in Dauphin, Pa. But for one night, Gravino will get to take a trip down memory lane and return to glory in victory lane, this time as a Living Legend.

“I don’t know that I’m really worthy of all this recognition, but I really do appreciate it,” said Gravino. “It’s going to be nice to tell some stories, see some people and just enjoy a night at the track surrounded around the people who made this all possible.”

“One thing you never forget is the people you meet in racing. I’m looking forward to catching up with people I have not seen in years and reliving the good old days. I can’t say thank you enough and this means a lot.”

The Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Cars and the River Valley Builder’s Super Late Models will compete with a grand total $70,000 purse available between the two-divisions and many contingency sponsor prizes as well.

This year’s honorees will be Joe Gravino on the Sprint Car side and Ken Dickson on the Late Model side.

Gravino is most known by speedway regulars for his yellow Polaris sponsored #28 and has 10 career victories at the Juniata County oval, including an opening day win at the speedway in 1989.

Dickson has 54 career victories at the speedway, second only to Scotty Haus. Dickson’s son Nick Dickson is a frequent competitor in the Super Model division at the speedway and picked up a win earlier in the season.

The first ever Dream Race was held in 2007, where Sean Michael triumphed in a very popular and emotional win driving for the late Jim Nace in his #6 Sprint Car. Since then, Greg Hodnett (2), Cody Darrah, Chad Layton, Blane Heimbach, Ryan Taylor, Brent Marks, Rick Lafferty and most recently Lance Dewease have won the annual event. The win last year was Dewease’s second in the race.

For the 410 Sprint Cars there will be an entire purse totaling nearly $55,000 with the 30-lap feature winner guaranteed $10,000 and the track paying $500 to start. The main event will pay over $35,000 throughout the field. The total purse is the largest un-sanctioned purse in Pennsylvania as of this weekend.

As traditional there will also be twin 16-lap semi mains carrying full purses as well that will help set the field for the A-Main. Winners will earn $2,000 for their efforts, $200 to start and nearly $10,000 making up the purse for each Semi.

Time trials will set the semi lineups with an inversion draw. Odd and even qualifiers will split into the semi-mains with the top 10 from each semi advancing to the A-Main. The top 3 from each semi will go into inversion draw as well.

There will also be a $100 fast time award presented by Packer’s Concessions for each semi, hard charger awards presented by York County Racing Club in both semi’s, along with three $200 bonuses in the A-Main’s selected from the 11th-25th place finishers. Fans will have a chance to play a part in the night as well as they will be voting for the 25th place starter in the A-Main. To be eligible for the fan vote, drivers must finish the B-Main and be a non-qualifier. Longtime promoter and racing announcer Ted Reitz is sponsoring the semi-purses.

Thousands of dollars in contingency prizes and cash will also be handed out throughout the night. They include 6 Right Rear Tires via Hoosier Tires, 2 Rider Racing Engine Dyno’s, 2 Don Ott Racing Engine Dyno’s, 4 $100 Gift Certificates via Diversified Machine Inc., 4 $50 Gift Certificates via Zemco Speed Equipment, 25 $30 Kreitz Oval Track Parts Gift Certificates, 1 Set of Bumpers and Nerf Bars via Mach-1 Chassis, 1 Set of Penske Shocks, 24 $100 Gift Certificates via A; Drive Lines for the A-Main starters and 3 Wings Unlimited Buy 1 Get 1 Free Certificates for Nose Wings.

57th Annual Williams Grove National Open To Pay $65,000 To Win October 5!

Event offers biggest sprint car cash winners share ever offered anywhere in East

September 27 Tune-Up Also Increased, $8,000 Offered To Win!

7/31/19

Mechanicsburg –The winner of this years 57th annual Champion Racing Oil National Open for sprint cars at Williams Grove Speedway on October 5 will pocket the biggest cash payday ever in the history of the oval and in the East, at $65,000.

The speedway made the huge announcement late on Wednesday.

“Since 1939, for decades and decades, Williams Grove Speedway has represented the pinnacle of the sport of sprint car racing in the East,” said Williams Grove owner Kathy Hughes.

“Fans and drivers look to us and expect us to carry the torch high for the sport as the premier arena for sprint car racing in the east and taking this step just perpetuates and broadens our legacy as the leader in the industry on the East Coast,” Hughes said.

The $65,000 winner’s share of the 57th annual Champion Racing Oil National Open will be up for grabs by the World of Outlaws NOS Engery Drink Sprint Cars Series and the Pennsylvania Posse sprint car stars at the prestigious two-day event slated to take place October 4 and 5.

The 65K winner’s share will be the biggest cash amount ever offered to win a sprint car race anywhere, ever, in the East, much less just at Williams Grove Speedway.

And in addition to the boost in pay announced for the National Open, the speedway has also now posted an $8,000 paycheck to win the September 27 National Open World of Outlaws Tune Up event.

As usual, the Champion Racing Oil National Open will be a multi-day event with two complete World of Outlaws shows staged on October 4 and 5.

Friday’s event will pay $10,000 to win but Saturday's 40-lap Open itself will be the prize that all in attendance from across the nation will be shooting for as it offers a momentous paycheck worth $65,000 to the winner.

The premiere event for sprint cars at the track since it began in 1963, the Williams Grove National Open first paid $25,000 to win in 2001 before jumping to $30,000 in 2002 and then to a monumental $50,000 in 2006.

The race paid $56,000 to winner Lance Dewease in 2018.

Save for two years when rains forced postponement, the World of Outlaws has sanctioned the prestigious Open every year since 1989.

The race went to 40 laps in 1993 with distances set at 50, 75, 100 and 150 laps at times since the event’s inception.

Hastings’ Michigan driver Gordon Johncock won the inaugural race.

THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES

CHRIS WINDOM SHINES AT KEN BRENN USAC MIDGET MASTERS; JEFF STRUNK GRABS GRANDVIEW CAREER WIN NUMBER 200, 14TH THUNDER VICTORY

BECHTELSVILLE, PA (July 30, 2019) – It was a thrilling night of racing Tuesday night at Grandview Speedway for the return of the USAC Midgets – teamed up with the NASCAR 358 Modifeds -- as part of the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series. The Ken Brenn USAC Midget Masters event was won by Chris Windom, while Jeff Strunk picked up his second consecutive Thunder Modified win and fourteenth career Thunder victory.

The 30 lap victory marked Windom’s second career midget win, battling it out with teammate Tyler Courtney in the late stages of the event.

“I hated to see all those late race restarts,” Windom said in victory lane. “For us (he and Courtney) to finish first and second the first night into Pennsylvania Midget Week is pretty cool.”

Windom inherited the top starting position from Zeb Wise, who moved to a back-up car and was forced to the rear of the field.

At the drop of the green flag, Windom muscled to the front holding off Kevin Thomas Jr. for the initial five circuits around the one-third mile Bechtelsville raceway. With a battle building behind the top competitors, Courtney moved into the third position followed by Jason McDougal, and Kyle Larson.

The top five charged around nose-to-tail swapping race grooves and weaving in and out of lapped traffic, while Windom maintained the top spot.

The red flag flew on lap 23 for Steve Buckwalter, who rolled over after contact with a spinning Zeb Wise.

Courtney moved to second with five laps remaining as Tanner Carrick and Kyle Larson both battled past Kevin Thomas, Jr. With four competitors dicing it out for second position, Windom was able to pull away to a ten-car advantage.

A lap 28 caution slowed the field for the final time, and set up a two-lap dash to the checkered flag.

Windom held the point as the green flag waved, with teammate Tyler Courtney right on his rear bumper.

As the two approached for the white flag, Courtney shot to the bottom of the race track charging inside Windom securing the lead heading into turn 1. But Windom battled back down the backstretch, regained the top spot and scored the Ken Brenn Midget Masters win.

“I knew the slider was coming,” Windom said of Courtney in Victory Lane. “I’m just glad I was able to sneak back by him, I did everything I could to hold him off.”

After a valiant effort, Tyler Courtney would settle for second, Tanner Carrick finished in third, Tanner Thorson came from a 15th starting position to finish fourth, and Chad Boat finished in the fifth position.

Kyle Larson set the Quick Time with a lap of 14.310 setting an initial track record for the USAC Midgets. USAC Midget qualifying events were won by Tanner Thorson, Tyler Courtney, and Jason McDougal.

In the NASCAR 358 Modified event, Doug Manmiller and Tim Buckwalter led the field to the drop of the green flag with Manmiller holding the lead for the initial two laps. Buckwalter would takeover the top spot on lap three with Meme Desantis and Manmiller right on his tail.

All eyes were on Jeff Strunk as he moved into second on the eighth lap of the event – from his fifth-place starting spot. And powered past Buckwalter for the lead, two laps later.

In a race without any caution flags, Strunk was able to steer the Glenn Hyneman-owned number 126 machine around heavy lapped traffic maintaining the lead and claiming his 200th career victory.

Craig VonDohren closed in the late stages – but would settle for second place, Tim Buckwalter finished in third, Kevin Hirthler finished in fourth and Brett Kressley finished in fifth after starting in the 14th position.

NASCAR 358 Modified Heat Races were won by Kevin Hirthler, Tim Buckwalter, and Alex Yankowski

Ken Brenn Sr. was on hand for the event in his honor posing for photographs alongside Kyle Larson – who piloted a Keith Kunz-owned midget painted up like Brenn’s famed number 24 machine.

The NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series returns on Thursday, August 22 with the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions 410 Sprint Cars, alongside the NASCAR 38 Modifieds.

REINHARDT SCORES FOURTH 360 SPRINT CAR WIN WITH LAST-LAP PASS; DUKE WINS SECOND STRAIGHT 305 SPRINT CAR RACE; MILLER VICTORIOUS IN LIMITED LATE MODELS; BRUNSON TAKES SECOND ROADRUNNER RACE OF SEASON

SELINSGROVE, Pa. -- Kyle Reinhardt of Neptune City, N.J., came into Selinsgrove Speedway Saturday night as the 360 sprint car points leader by just 10 markers over Jason Shultz of Carlisle.

Late in the 25-lap feature race Reinhardt was going to be happy with a second-place finish but things changed in a hurry and instead he picked up his fourth win of the season with a last-lap pass by Colby Womer of Mt. Pleasant Mills at the wheel of the Westbrook Enterprises No. 1W.

Ken Duke of Selinsgrove won his second 305 sprint car feature in a row at the track.

Shaun Miller of Millerstown, who turned many laps in a pro stock at Selinsgrove, returned to win the 20-lap limited late model feature.

Tom Brunson of Middleburg won the 12-lap roadrunner nightcap.

Selinsgrove Speedway will be back in action at 7 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 3, with the re-scheduled Kids Night from June. The 360 sprint cars, super late models, pro stocks, and roadrunners will be in action in addition to a classic race car display by the Eastern Museum of Motor Racing on Heller’s Gas Night. Track gates will open at 5 p.m.

Front row starter Colby Womer blasted into the sprint car feature lead followed by Adam Carberry, Ryan Kissinger, Derek Locke and Kyle Reinhardt.

Reinhardt, who started eighth, was fast early in the race and was quickly up to third. Reinhardt caught Carberry for second and started tracking down Womer.

Kissinger dove under Carberry off of turn four for third but the pair tangled in the second turn bringing out the caution. This moved Chad Layton and Steve Buckwalter into the top five with Jason Shultz stalking the pair.

Womer got a great restart and left the battle for second to Reinhardt and Locke. Running fourth, Layton slowed and stopped in turn four, slowing the field again.

Locke, who has been fast but unlucky lately continued to dog Reinhardt as Shultz raced into fourth.

With two laps to go Reinhardt drew to Womer’s tail tank. Womer bobbled on the last lap giving Reinhardt the opening he needed to take the lead and win.

Womer, Locke, Shultz and Buckwalter rounded out the top five.

360 sprint car heats were won by Womer and Locke.

Tyler Reinhardt and Kruz Kepner led the 305 sprint car field to the start/finish line with Keith Prutzman, Devin Adams and Ken Duke in tow.

The field was slowed on lap eight when Kepner hit the second turn fence.

Duke started to dog the Prutzman car and on lap 10 Duke was in second. Within three laps Duke caught T. Reinhardt and on lap 14 drove by him off of turn two for the lead. Then Wally Eschenhaur brought out the caution on lap 15.

Duke ran the rest of the distance untested winning by 4.035 seconds over T. Reinhardt, Prutzman, Devin Adams and Doug Dodson.

The heats for the 305 sprint cars went to, Doug Dodson, T. Reinhardt, Prutzman and Adams. The B-Main was won by Dominic Melair.

Jim Yoder and Todd Snook shared the front row of the limited late model feature with Yoder grabbing the lead. Matt Cochran, Troy Miller, and Devin Frey rounded out the top five.

In the early laps Yoder opened a sizable lead with the father-son combo of Troy and Shaun Miller battling for fourth place. Shaun broke free and worked his way into second. The caution flag flew on lap 12 for Troy, who stopped on the track.

Shaun Miller tested Yoder high, passing the veteran down the backstretch. Almost immediately, the red flag stopped the action as Derrick German slammed the outside wall. He was not injured.

After the restart, Cochran and Yoder started a high speed battle for second exchanging the position over the next couple of laps. With a clear track in front of him, Shaun Miller raced to the checkered flag over Jim Yoder, Cochran, Andrew Yoder and Snook.

A. Yoder, Snook, and Tim Krape were victorious in the limited late model heats.

Tom Brunson grabbed the roadrunner lead followed by Keith Bissinger, Smith Cope, Curtis Lawton and Jake Jones. Brunson opened a sizable lead but Bissinger slowly chipped away with Cope on his rear bumper.

Jim Collier slammed the fence bringing out the yellow on the last lap.

Brunson wired the field, his second win of the season followed by Bissinger, Cope, Lawton, and Jones.

Roadrunner heats were won by Bissinger and Brunson.

Schatz Ends Four Year Grove Winless Streak With 20K Summer Nationals Win

7/27/19

Mechanicsburg – The drought has ended.

After a four-plus year winless streak at Williams Grove Speedway, World of Outlaws champion Donny Schatz roared back to victory at the oval on Saturday night, taking the $20,000 win in the Summer Nationals feature after a flawless drive.

The win was the 20th of Schatz’s career at Williams Grove Speedway but it was his first since May 15, 2015.

After an initial start rollover by Shane Stewart on the frontstretch, the event would go non-stop.

Current World of Outlaws point leader Brad Sweet started second in the 30-lap feature and took the lead when the race began over third starter Schatz, who slipped by polesitter Sheldon Haudenschild in the first turn.

Haudenschild was fast throughout the race on the high cushion with Schatz working well on all sides of the track and when leader Sweet entered traffic on the eighth tour, Schatz was breathing down his neck.

Schatz made a masterful, power move on the 10th lap, driving right through the middle of the race track in the second turn to split a lapped car on the inside and Sweet on the cushion to throttle into control after a three-wide move.

The move served notice just how good Schatz’s car was and just how hard it would be to pass him even if he could be caught.

However Haudenschild had impressive speed on the cushion and after a less than pretty slide job to get by Sweet for second in the first turn on the 13th lap, he set his sights on the leader.

Haudenschild, Sweet, David Gravel and Daryn Pittman trailed Schatz at the halfway point.

With 10 laps to go, Haudenschild had caught Schatz for the first time and the pair crossed the line nose to tail but Haudenschild would miss his mark in the first turn, allowing Schatz to scoot away.

And then again with four laps to go, the Ohio challenger had run down Schatz but passing him proved to be a tall feat as the perennial outlaws champion moved flawlessly through traffic on all sides of the track to hold on to the big payday.

“It’s been a long time since we’ve been standing out here,” Schatz said.

“These guys just made all the right decisions tonight,” he said of his crew.

Sheldon’s really good when it comes to the cushion like that.”

Haudenschild talked about catching the leader.

“Following Donny around there, he don’t make any mistakes so it’s difficult to get around,” he said.

Third finisher Sweet commented on losing the lead saying he felt like he didn’t drive a great race in lapped traffic.

Daryn Pittman and David Gravel rounded out the top five finishers, completeing a top five sweep by the outlaws drivers over the locals.

Sixth through 10th went to Lance Dewease, Danny Dietrich, Ian Madsen, Freddie Rahmer and Carson Macedo.

Schatz’s margin of victory was 1.484 seconds.

Heats went to Gravel, Pittman, Dewease and Schatz with Haudenschild winning the dash to earn the pole for the main event.

The Friday night winner, Tim Shaffer won the B Main after blowing an engine in his heat and making a motor change.

For the second night in a row, Gravel set quick time over the field with a lap of 17.290 seconds.

By- Justin Snyder

PORT ROYAL, Pa- Port Royal Speedway will be off this weekend, but will return next week with the annual Living Legends Dream Race.

The Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Cars and the River Valley Builder’s Super Late Models will compete with a grand total $70,000 purse available between the two-divisions and many contingency sponsor prizes as well.

This year’s honorees will be Joe Gravino on the Sprint Car side and Ken Dickson on the Late Model side.

Gravino is most known by speedway regulars for his yellow Polaris sponsored #28 and has 10 career victories at the Juniata County oval, including an opening day win at the speedway in 1989.

Dickson has 54 career victories at the speedway, second only to Scotty Haus. Dickson’s son Nick Dickson is a frequent competitor in the Super Model division at the speedway and picked up a win earlier in the season.

The first ever Dream Race was held in 2007, where Sean Michael triumphed in a very popular and emotional win driving for the late Jim Nace in his #6 Sprint Car. Since then, Greg Hodnett (2), Cody Darrah, Chad Layton, Blane Heimbach, Ryan Taylor, Brent Marks, Rick Lafferty and most recently Lance Dewease have won the annual event. The win last year was Dewease’s second in the race.

For the 410 Sprint Cars there will be an entire purse totaling over $57,000 with the 30-lap feature winner guaranteed $10,000 and the track paying $500 to start. The main event will pay over $35,000 throughout the field.

As traditional there will also be twin 16-lap semi mains carrying full purses as well that will help set the field for the A-Main. Winners will earn $2,000 for their efforts, $200 to start and nearly $10,000 making up the purse for each Semi.

Time trials will set the semi lineups with an inversion draw. Odd and even qualifiers will split into the semi-mains with the top 10 from each semi advancing to the A-Main. The top 3 from each semi will go into inversion draw as well.

There will also be a fast time award for each semi, hard charger awards in both semi’s, along with three $200 bonuses in the A-Main’s selected from the 11th-25th place finishers. Fans will have a chance to play a part in the night as well as they will be voting for the 25th place starter in the A-Main. To be eligible for the fan vote, drivers must finish the B-Main and be a non-qualifier.

Thousands of dollars in contingency prizes and cash will also be handed out throughout the night. We will a have a complete list close to race day.

The late models will be racing for $2500 to the winner with a 25-lap feature featuring a purse of close to $12,500. A-Main qualifiers will be guaranteed $250 to take the green along with $100 in tow money.

Stage Set For Williams Grove World Of Outlaws Champion Racing Oil Summer Nationals This Week

Friday & Saturday races continue event history that dates to 2002

7/21/19

Mechanicsburg – The Champion Racing Oil World of Outlaws Nos Energy Drink Sprint Cars Series Summer Nationals is coming up this week at Williams Grove Speedway, slated for Friday and Saturday, July 26 and 27 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.

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 26 outlaws-posse match will feature a 25-lap main paying $8,000 to win while the July 27 Saturday finale Champion Racing Oil Summer Nationals feature will offer $20,000 to the winner.

Only one night of Summer Nationals action was completed last season with Lance Dewease taking the win and Dewease has to be viewed as a prime contender again this season.

Dewease has taken three Williams Grove wins this season along with Freddie Rahmer.

Dewease holds a total of five checkered flags in Summer Nationals action.

Gettysburg’s Danny Dietrich however seems to be the hottest driver at Williams Grove this season aboard the Gary Kauffman No. 48 and indeed, Dietrich just notched his fourth oval win of the year on July 19.

Dietrich has a commanding lead over Rahmer in the season point standings and appears ready to make the most of his outlaws chances this upcoming week.

The outlaws circuit rolls into the Williams Grove Champion Racing Oil Summer Nationals with Califorrnia’s Brad Sweet leading the pack aboard Kasey Kahne’s No. 49 sprinter.

Sweet is having a banner year with the outlaws’ series in 2019, carrying 11 circuit wins to date into the Keystone State including a massive drive to a $175,000 victory in the July 20 Kings Royal at Eldora Speedway.

Perennial champion Donny Schatz of North Dakota, who has six wins, is trailing Sweet in the series point standings.

Series regulars Logan Schuchart and David Gravel also have four wins on the series to date this season.

A former track regular with a pair of tour wins this season, Oklahoma’s Daryn Pittman will also be looking to put his Dennis Roth No. 83 back at the front of the field when he gets to Williams Grove this week.

Pittman traditionally runs well when he returns to Williams Grove and in fact scored Summer Nationals wins while driving for Reeve Kruck in 2006 and 2008, and while behind the wheel for Kasey Kahne in 2016.

Schatz has a total of six event wins in Summer Nationals action however he has been winless in the races since 2013.

In fact, since 2013, of the nine Summer Nationals races held, local drivers have scored eight of them with Pittman being the only driver to break the Pennsylvania Posse stronghold on the races.

Summer Nationals sponsor Champion Brands Champion Racing Oil offers a wide variety of quality racing lubricants, oils, performance additives and fluids at outlets across the nation and online.

On the web, products can be purchased via Smileys Racing Produtcts, Precise Racing Products and Speedway Motors along with many other internet-based companies.

Family Tradition- Jared Esh Picks Up First Career Sprint Car Victory at Port Royal Speedway

By- Justin Snyder

PORT ROYAL, Pa- Jared Esh has been so close to tasting victory at the Port Royal Speedway in Weikert's Livestock 410 Sprint Car action. Just last week, Esh was leading the feature by a large amount when he nearly made contact with a lap car and allowed Dylan Cisney to close the gap. Motor issues brought an end to the fairy tale a few laps later.

He's blown tires, got into accidents and at times struggled with track conditions. As a young driver driving in the shadow of his retired father, Doug Esh, it would've been easy to second guess himself and wonder if he'd ever find victory lane. But the Lancaster, Pa. native kept coming back and kept grinding.

The hard work and effort finally paid off as Esh came from the 9th starting position on a hot night to hold off a hard charging Blane Haimbach and a broken shock to pick up his first career 410 Sprint Car victory.

"I don’t even remember half the race honestly," said Esh, surrounded by a mob of friends, family and fans before receiving a congratulatory phone call from his father in victory lane. "This is just so cool and I'm just really blessed and happy to be sitting here. I knew I could do it."

Tyler Bear and Tyler Reeser made up the front row, with Bear jumping out to the early lead after taking the green flag. However, A.J Flick, who started third, quickly showed he would be a factor as he pulled behind Bear exiting turn 2 and used his momentum to slide under him entering turn 3 to take the lead and lead lap 1.

The red flag would come out one lap later as Anthony Macri continued a string of bad luck when he made contact in turn 3 with Kyle Reinhardt on the bottom of the speedway. Macri would spin up the track and get on his side and would briefly get upside down after Jeff Miller had nowhere to go and hit his car.

All drivers walked away unharmed.

With extremely hot temperature's hitting the area drivers were allowed to exit their cars during the red-flag during clean-up.

When green flag action returned to the speedway, it was Flick once again sprinting out to the lead. However, things were heating up behind him. Kyle Reinhardt moved into the second position with a slide job on Bear in turn's 1 and 2 and Dylan Cisney and Esh entered the top five as well.

One lap later, it looked like Cisney was coming to make it back-to-back victories as he passed under Bear for the third position at the line. Esh would slide under Bear for the fourth position in turn's 1 and 2 on lap four and track point leader Logan Wagner would crack the top 5 exiting turn 4 as well.

With the leaders entering lap traffic on lap 7, Esh was able to overtake Cisney for the third position with a slide job in turn's 1 and 2. Wagner would follow suit the following circuit with a slide job of his own to overtake Cisney for the fourth position.

Esh pulled up to the tail tank of Reinhardt and the two briefly jockeyed for position on lap 9, however the caution would fly for a slowing Reeser on the front stretch, wiping out a large lead for Flick and negating Esh's pass for second.

On the restart, Reinhardt showed his muscle as he tried a slide job on Flick entering turn 1. He would pull even with him as the two cars exited turn 2 and they would drag race into turn 3, with Flick using the high side to pull ahead once again. However Esh used a head of steam exiting turn four and passed Reinhardt for second before ducking under Flick at the line.

Esh tried a slide job of his own entering turn 1 and he took the lead from Flick, only for Reinhardt to overtake Flick as well and pull even with Esh exiting turn 2. Reinhardt would try a slide job in turn's 3 and 4, however Esh had enough momentum on the top of the speedway to lead for the first time on lap 13.

"We were really fast and anytime you start as far back as we did, you have to be on the wheel and making moves when you can," said Esh of his move for the lead. "These guys are all so good here and I just knew it was time to go if I wanted to win."

It looked like Esh's string of bad luck might continue as he slammed against the outside guardrail exiting turn 2 the following lap. He was able to continue, but there appeared to be something broken on the car as Esh nearly spun on by himself on the top of the speedway 3 laps later in turn 3 with a 2.985 second lead at his expense.

Realizing something was broken, Esh moved to the bottom of the speedway to try and hold on to the car and be able to control it. With five laps remaining, Reinhardt, who was using the high-side still, had closed the gap significantly and was on the tail-tank of the leader. Knowing he wouldn’t be able to hold off the pack where he was running, Esh made the decision to go all-in and move back up the speedway.

"I almost spun out back there and I really knew something was broken and that it was going to be really hard to hang onto the car up top," said Esh. "But I kept seeing Kyle get closer and closer and I knew at that point I was going to have to just go for it up top if I wanted the chance to win."

Esh continued to fend off Reinhardt and opened up a 1.145 second lead with 2-laps to go, when Kyle Smith brought out the caution as he came to a stop in turn 1, setting up one final restart.

Nursing the car coming to the green flag, Esh waited until the last minute to get in the gas and bring the field back to racing action. Reinhardt tried to execute a slide job in turn 1, only for Esh to ride the middle of the track and break up his momentum. Reinhardt would re-group down the backstretch and try another slide job attempt in turn's 3 and 4, but Esh was able to once again lead to come to the white flag.

With the pack all jockeying for position in hopes Esh's car might finally give in, Blane Heimbach, who started 10th, pulled a slide job to go from fourth to second exiting turn 2 on the last lap. However, he would have nothing for the leader and Esh would win by .992 seconds for his first- ever victory worth $3600. He also received a $300 bonus for winning from the 9th starting position.

Wagner, Flick and Reinhardt completed the top five with Cisney, TJ Stutts, Justin Whittal, Bear and Mike Wagner rounding out the top 10.

"After Speedweek I think we were all ready to kill each other after 9 straight days of racing," said Esh."We've been fast, but we just hadn’t been able to get that break."

"My guys kept working and we kept gaining and I'm just happy to finally be able to give them some recognition that all our hard work is paying off and this is a night I won’t soon forget."

For Heimbach, he was just happy to be able to be in contention after starting from the 10th starting spot.

"We were fortunate to be in a position there on that final restart to even have a shot at winning," said Heimbach. "We kept at it and the car was really good, but ultimately we just started too far back and I'm happy with a second. Congratulations to Jared and his team, they deserved it tonight."

Flick also received a $150 bonus form the 4-H Club for finishing in the fourth position.

Super Late Models

Dylan Yoder capitalized on a rare front row starting spot to lead every lap during River Valley Builders Super Late Model action to become the track's first 2-time super late model feature winner of 2019.

"Usually we are coming from mid-pack and when we have to do that it seems we are always really good," said Yoder. "I usually seem to have bad luck or something happens when we start up front. It’s nice to finally take advantage of the starting spot and come home a winner."

Yoder and Alex Ferree led the field to the green flag with Yoder jumping out to the early lead.

Ferree and Jeff Rine were putting on the early show as the two cars raced side by side behind Yoder for second over the next 3 laps. However a car would spin in turn 3 and bring out the caution with 4 laps down.

With the field utilizing Delaware restarts, Yoder was easily able to pull away on the restart. However, the side by side action behind him was a blessing to 9th place starter Andy Haus as he moved into the fourth position on the top of the speedway in turn's 1 and 2 before sliding into third exiting turn 4 to complete lap 5.

Two laps later he would use the outside of the speedway to move into the second position and he began to set his sights on Yoder. Just after the completion of lap 7, the caution would fly again for a car spinning in turn 3 again.

Haus would choose the outside line to line up on the restart and he would attempt a slide-job on Yoder entering turn 1 and 2. However, Yoder would pull away down the backstretch and begin to once again check out on the field. Things would go relatively calm over the next 10 laps before a car would once again spin in turn 4 to bring out the final caution.

Haus would once again take the high line behind Yoder, but a bad restart allowed Yoder to enter turn 1 unchallenged. Haus would actually lose a few positions and he would battle with Ferree and Rine over the final laps for the second position while Yoder checked out over the final 8 laps to take the checkered flag by a commanding 2.817 advantage.

Haus would rally again for second with Ferree, Rine and Hayes Mattern completing the top 5. Tim Smith Jr., Bryan Bernheisel, Roy Deese, Austin Berry and Chad Myers rounded out the top 10.

Rine took home the $150 bonus form the 4-H Club for finishing fourth.

"For it to be July and me to be the first repeat winner of the season, it really shows how tough this division is and how great the field is," said Yoder. "Sometimes it’s about having the best car and other times it’s about having the best starting spot. Tonight I think we had both and we took advantage of it to be sitting here in victory lane."

Haus knew if he was going to challenge Yoder he was going to have to get him a restart and ultimately was happy to finish second.

"We had been struggling earlier in the year and we made a few changes last week that really seem t be paying off," said Haus. "I thought we mightlve had something for Dylan there early in the race, but once I made my move and he pulled away, ultimately I knew he had the best car and it was going to just be about luck if we were to get him."

305 Sprint Cars

In only his fourth career Penns Valley Meat Market PASS/IMCA 305 Sprint Car start, Garret Bard passed Devin Adams late in lap traffic to claim his first series victory at the Port Royal Speedway.

Adams and Bard led the field to the green flag with Adams getting the early jump on the field. A lap 3 caution brought the field back together before much action could occur.

On the restart it was Drew Ritchey making his move as he tried to pull under Adams in turn 12 and 2, however he couldn't complete the pass and Adams would pull away.

Bard would get by Ritchey to move back into the second position on lap 14 and he would attempt to track down Adams, who was battling with lap traffic ahead. On lap 18 on the backstretch, Bard would taker advantage of the lap cars to pull by Adams and lead lap 18. Nobody would have anything for the young rookie and Bard would claim the checkered flag over Adamas by a .865 second advantage.

Jonathon Jones, Ritchey and Nick Sweigart would complete the top 5 with Doug Dodson, Dave Grube, Kassidy Kreitx, Ken Duke and Keith Prutzman rounding out the top 10.

Ritchey would receive a $150 bonus form the 4-H Club for finishing fourth.

Another three-car battle for third was in progress behind the leaders. This time it was Updegraff, Schmeidel and Travis McClelland with Updegraff keeping the spot.

Diehl was keeping Chaney within striking distance for the lead when the caution came out on lap 8 for Schmeidel who got spun around in turn 4 while running fourth.

Chaney had the field lined up and ready for green, but Bellemare came to a stop in turn 2 before the restart.

Diehl got his nose under Chaney again in turns 1 and 2 but Chaney held onto the lead.

Dietrich Earns Third Mitch Smith Win At Williams Grove, Fourth Of Season

Kevin Nouse overcomes for limited sprint victory

7/19/19

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Mechanicsburg – Danny Dietrich of Gettysburg struck for the third Mitch Smith Memorial victory of his career at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, walking away with $8,080.80 for what was his fourth sprint car win of the season at the track in a World of Outlaws tune up race.

Dietrich took the win ahead of a furious battle for positions in the top five that took place between Freddie Rahmer, Anthony Macri, Chad Trout, Brian Montieth and eventually, Lance Dewease.

The 20-lap 358 sprint main went to Kevin Nouse for his second oval win of the year but only after a marathaon event.

Polesitter Chad Trout tried to get the drop on Dietrich when action began in the 30-lap, 31st annual Mitch Smith Memorial but as quick as Trout took off at the drop of the green, Dietrich blasted to his outside in the first corner to drag race the speedster down the backchute.

The drag race then ended in the blink of an eye as the pair raced into the third and fourth corners with Dietrich taking the lead using the cushion.

Dietrich’s pace was slowed for spins on laps four and six and both times Trout tested the inside on Dietrich but to no avail.

As the leader hit the rear of the field on the 12th tour, Montieth and Rahmer began battling for the third spot with Rahmer eventually besting the match to also get around Trout for second with 16 laps to go.

Dietrich saw a 4.263 second lead erased with 13 laps to go when Kyle Moody backed into the outside first turn rail.

The restart saw Rahmer, Trout and Macri battle for second with Macri finally getting third from Trout with five laps to go while gaining on Rahmer.

Meanwhile, 18th starter Lance Dewease moved into fifth and was up to fourth by the time a final caution flag unfurled with just two laps left.

The return to action saw Rahmer attempt an outside move in the first turn but the bottom was just too quick with Dietrich pulling out to a .732 second lead at the finish.

Macri rode home third followed by Dewease and Trout.

Sixth through 10th went to Brian Montieth, TJ Stutts, Cory Haas, Robbie Kendell and Kyle Reinhardt.

“We’re very happy to be standing here on the frontstretch honoring such a great man,” Dietrich said of taking the prestigious checkered flag.

“Little Freddie fires in there and he’s doin’ everything he can to win, I’m doin everything I can to slow down to set the car into one so I can beat him off the second turn,” Dietrich said of the final restart when Rahmer tried to steal the win.

Heats went to Dietrich, Trout and Stutts with Trout winning the dash.

Dietrich set fast time over the field with a lap of 17.004 seconds.

The 358 sprint feature was plagued by eight yellow flag periods including one that turned red for refueling with three laps to go.

Veteran Rich Eichelberger led the first lap before Tyler Breahm scooted him off the inside line in the first turn to take control.

The restarts worked to Kevin Nouse’s advantage as the defending track champion began the race from the 10th starting spot while current point leader Doug Hammaker started out in 13th.

At the halfway point, Nouse was up to fourth behind Breahm Eichelberger and Dylan Norris.

Nouse used the outside lip in the third and fourth turns to make his big moves during the second half of the race, using it to get by all the lead cars until he was the one out front, with five laps to go.

Hammker took worked his way front and got by Breahm for second on the final restart to finish bridesmaid.

Breahm settled for third followed by Glenndon Forsythe and Norris.

Heats went to Eichelberger and Breahm.

Cisney Claims Second Victory of Season in Wild Finish

By- Justin Snyder

PORT ROYAL, Pa- Cisney has a flare for the dramatic. For the second time this season, Cisney used a last ditch effort to best Anthony Macri coming to the checkered flag for his second win of the season at the Port Royal Speedway.

The win didn’t come without drama though as Cisney was leading on the white flag lap and proceeded to get into the wall in turn 2 and ride the guard rail half way down the backstretch, at one point getting on 2-wheels. He was able to regroup, but made contact with Macri exiting turn four, sending Macri spinning wildly into the front stretch inside guardrail.

"It's not really something to celebrate," said Cisney in victory lane. "It was just tight racing and it was completely my fault. All I can say is sorry and move on."

Rick Lafferty and Trenton Sheaffer led the field to the green flag, with Sheaffer getting the early jump from the outside front row to lead lap one. However, there was plenty of action happening mid-pack on the start.

Third place starter Steve Buckwalter got bottled up on the inside, allowing Cisney to advance from 8th to 4th at the exit of turn 2. Fourth place starter Jared Esh also capitalized to take the third place spot on the opening turn and he slid past Lafferty for 2nd heading into turn 3.

Sheaffer's reign at the top wouldn’t last long, as Esh slid under him in turn 1 and 2 the following lap to take the lead. Cisney would pull under Sheaffer in turn's 3 and 4 and hold the second position by a nose at the line as well.

Meanwhile 7th place starter Macri and ninth place starter Logan Wagner were dicing their way to through the field as well. Macri slid into 3rd exiting turn 2 on lap 3 and Wagner would follow suit two-laps later to take the fourth position.

Esh held a comfortable 2.4 second lead on the field before he attempted to pass the lap car of Ryan Linder on the bottom of the speedway on lap 9, allowing Cisney to cut the lead in half. Three laps later the caution flag would fly as Sheaffer would get turned around in turn 4 while running in the 8th position.

Esh would once again get the jump on the field when racing returned to green-flag action as he held off Cisney's attempt in turn 1 and 2. Macri would pull even with Cisney in turn's 3 and 4 as both drivers looked to pounce on the leader.

Coming into turn 1 Cisney dove to the bottom of the speedway and executed a perfect slide job to take the lead. Macri used his momentum exiting the backstretch of the speedway to slide under Esh as well to move into the second position.

"Jared (Esh) was pretty good there and I got around him." said Cisney. "We were really good in clean air. The car was good enough that I knew if we got there we'd have a shot to win."

Wagner would pass Esh for the 3rd position on lap 17 as Esh slowed entering turn 1 and pulled off the speedway with a mechanical issue.

Over the next 5 laps, Cisney would work up a 1.122 second lead over Macri and Wagner, who both were riding the extreme top of the speedway in hopes of catching the Port Royal native. With a very thin cushion, both Macri and Wagner banged off the wall of the speedway, but it didn't halt their momentum.

As Cisney entered turn 1 following receiving the white flag, he went to the high side of the speedway to pass the lap car of Nicole Bower. With a .743 second lead, he got into the wall and his momentum kept him slapping the outside guard rail. He continued to ride the guardrail down the backstretch, barely keeping the car from wrecking.

This allowed Macri to pass him entering turn 3. However with Cisney regaining speed and the lap car of Bower on the bottom, Macri took entry through the turn in the middle, forcing him to slide up the track exiting turn 4. This allowed Cisney to get a run back under him heading to the checkered flag and the two cars made contact, breaking something in the front of Macri's car and sending him spinning wildly.

Cisney would take the checkered flag by .653seconds as Wagner and Mike Wagner drove by Macri's smoking car resting on the inside guardrail. TJ Stutts and last week's winner Lucas Wolfe completed the top 5.

"It's hard to run the fence here and I jumped It there on the last lap behind lapped cars, " said Cisney to a crowd of boos and cheers. "You have to be real careful or it'll suck you into it. I came up on that lap car and I cracked the throttle at the wrong time and it pulled me into it. It was a bad last lap but I have to thank my guys for a good car."

Wagner, the series points leader was disappointed with the finish and thought the race should have remained with one lap left following the wreck. Speedway officials deemed the race over though.Macri walked away under his own power to the pits.

"It was one of those race tracks where you had to get up on it," said Wagner. "I thought I had another chance at them. It's a shame when Macri wrecks on the frontstretch and Cisney crosses the checkered and the race is over. If anything, we should have another lap."

AJ Flick, Buckwalter, Dan Shetler, Lafferty and Ryan Taylor completed the top 10.

Super Late Models

Kyle Lee became the 11th different winner in River Valley Builders Super Late Model action at the Port Speedwway Saturday night as he bested Gary Stuhler by 1.240 seconds for the $2000 winners share.

"We've had a lot of close ones here. It’s been a long time coming but we finally ended up here on the stage," said Lee.

Tim Wilson and Scott Flickinger led the field to the green flag with Wilson jumping out to the early lead. Colton Flinner was the early mover as he slid from his fourth starting position into second on the opening lap.

Three laps later the caution came out as two cars got turned around in turn's 3 and 4.

When green flag action returned, it was Wilson again getting the jump on the field. However the race was heating up behind him as Stuhler and Lee were in a testy battle for the fourth position. Both drivers held the position multiple times over the next 4 laps before Lee passed both Stuhler and Rance Garlock to move into the 3rd position on lap 9. Stuhler was follow into fourth using the outside of the speedway.

Two laps later both Lee and Stuhler passed Flinner for 2nd and 3rd.

One lap later Lee reeled in Wilson and he pulled even with him exiting turn 2. With a head of steam heading into turn 3, Lee slid in front of Wilson to ultimately take the lead for good. Stuhler would move into 2nd with 10 laps to go, but would never mount a serious threat to Lee as he took the checkered flag by 1.240 seconds.

Trevor Freathers, Dylan Yoder and Gene Knaub filled out the top five with Wilson, Andy Haus, Billy Wampler, Garlock and Scott Flickinger making up the top 10.

"You can race top or bottom or just about everywhere on this track," said Lee. "I was kind of running the middle there at the end and earlier I was on the bottom. The car was great all around and I'm happy to get the win."

Limited Late Models

Andrew Yoder came from the 8th starting position to dominate the Selinsgrove Ford Limited Late Model feature event as he bested Tim Krape by 4.449 seconds for the $800 win.

Krape and Donnie Farling led the field to the green flag with Krape taking the early lead. The caution would come out on lap 3 as two cars got turned around on the backstretch.

On the restart, Krape got crooked in turn's 1 and 2, allowing Farling to move into the lead by a nose at the line. Meanwhile Yoder was lurking in third. As the top two battled, Yoder made his move, taking 2nd on lap five and the lead on lap 8.

Krape would settle in in 2nd, but would have nothing for Yoder.

"I have been on the podium a lot this year, but I'm tired of not winning. That's what we are here for," said Yoder. "I ran the bottom on that restart and the car just didn’t pick up. SO I moved up and the csr really took off. I'm happy to be sitting here."

Shaun Miller, Devin Hart and Jared Fulkroad finished third through fifth with Drew Weisser, Eric Hohol, Kenny Yoder, Ryan Zook and Derick Garman rounding out the top 10.

Wolfe Wins Williams Grove Feature With Big Heat Race Move, Shultz Gets URC Main

7/12/19

Mechanicsburg – Lucas Wolfe led from start to finish in the 25-lap sprint car main at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night but he actually won the race on the opening lap of his heat race earlier in the night.

It was a run up the middle going into the first turn on the initial start of his heat that produced a three-wide move that netted Wolfe the lead in the qualifier and that set him on the pole for the feature thanks to a heads-up format.

And even Wolfe knew the move was key to his victory, his second of the season at the track.

“It was a very critical part of the night in the heat race,” he said.

In the URC sprint feature, Jason Shultz took the win away from Steve Buckwalter after dogging him for the first 17 laps of the 25-lap event.

Mechanicsburg’s Wolfe used the pole to earn the feature victory in the 410 sprint main, chased by Rick Lafferty for the first eight laps before Danny Dietrich got the spot in the midst of a battle with Freddie Rahmer.

Rahmer and Dietrich swapped the spot a few times on lap 10 before Rahmer took the spot for good as the race entered the rear of the field with 10 laps to go.

A restart with nine laps to go put Rahmer on Wolfe’s tail and Rahmer kept pace with Wolfe, biting into his lead while using the low side in turns three and four but eventually Wolfe was able to inch away to get outside of striking distance to the finish.

Traffic again entered the picture on the final lap but Wolfe took the victory by .504 seconds ahead of Rahmer.

Dietrich fought off a challenge from Brian Montieth during the closing laps to record third while Montieth and Mark Smith completed the top five finishers.

Sixth through 10th went to TJ Stutts, Anthony Macri, Kyle Moody, Cory Haas and Rick Lafferty.

Heats went to Wolfe, Lafferty and Moody.

The win was the 21st of Wolfe’s career at the track.

Buckwalter and Shultz had the front row for the start of the URC sprint main and Buckwalter got the drop when the green flag appeared.

Shultz assumed second and hounded Buckwalter all during the first eight laps before a red flag appeared for a turned over Derek Locke in the fourth corner.

Mark Smith lined up third for the restart but failed to challenge instead it was back to Shultz and Buckwalter battling for the win with Shultz sticking to the top lane while Buckwalter worked the inside.

And Shultz finally got far enough around in turns three and four with seven laps to go in order to be scored the leader.

Once in front, Shultz pulled away to a 2.095 second lead to pick up his first career 360 sprint car win at Williams Grove.

Lucas Wolfe was third followed by Josh Weller and Freddie Rahmer.

Sixth through 10th went to Kyle Reinhardt, Adam Carberry, Tyler Ross, Ed Aiken and Curt Michael.

Heats went to Shultz, Smith and Buckwalter.

Smith lost power on the final lap of the feature as the checkered flag unfurled.

The Mitch Smith Memorial will be part of Thrivent Financial World of Outlaws Tune Up Night for the Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint cars on July 19.

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.

Smith retired from the sport in 1978 and in 1988 at the age of 58 was felled by a massive heart attack.

Greg Hodnett Classic Events Raise Nearly $27,000 For Greg Hodnett Foundation Survivor’s Benefit

By- Justin Snyder

PORT ROYAL, Pa- Fighting off thunderstorms that hit the track all evening, Port Royal Speedway worked vigorously to make sure that the 1st Annual Greg Hodnett Classic was a success and that racing activities occurred for the many fans and supporters in attendance.

The 1st Annual Greg Hodnett Foundation 5k race kicked off the days activities where nearly 150 participants ran in memory of the late-great racer. 16-year old Brayden Harris completed the course with a time of 17:27 to take first place with the next finisher more than a minute behind. The highest finishing female was Janelle Werner of Beavertown, Pa. with a finishing time of 20:17.8, which was good enough for 5th overall.

The Greg Hodnett Foundation Memorial Cornhole Tournament organized by Tom Stimely Jr and Mid Penn Cornhole followed the race with 33 teams taking part in the event. The blind draw tournament was won by the team of Dane Delancey and Steve Roush, who both won $150 for their efforts. Second Place was Tom Stimely and Jared Shirk. The tournament raised almost $700 for the foundation.

Finally, the benefit auction occurred at 5:30, where fans were able to bid on one-of-a-kind items to include wing panels, photos, mementos and more. A large crowd took to the pavilion in support of the Mike Heffner led auction and everything went smoothly. Brian Imes was the auctioneer for the event.

As a whole, after all 3 events, merchandise sales, bake sale and raffle ticket sales, the foundation was able to raise nearly $27,000 in honor of Greg. The money will go towards a Survivor’s Benefit that will help ease the burden of the family members of a driver were they to pass away during competition at a Central Pennsylvania racetrack.

“It was such a pleasure to be able to work with Sherry and her team to honor such a great man,” said Steve O’Neal, Port Royal Speedway Head Promoter. “I was overwhelmed by the support we got for all of the events and I can’t thank all of the great fans and racers that helped achieve a very successful day and I’m looking forward to next year’s event.”

Racing activities ran deep into the night, with Lucas Wolfe ultimately picking up the $7027 win and the custom made Greg Hodnett Classic trophy created by Cold Hard Art of Brownsburg, Indiana. Wolfe used the win to also propel his Barshinger Racing team to victory as the 2019 PA Speedweek champions.

The highlight of the night for many was the 5-wide salute where all five of Hodnett’s PA Posse race cars were represented out front of the starting lineup while participating drivers performed a Missing-Man formation” honoring the driver before the green flag dropped.

While an official date has not been scheduled, the event and race will return next year to the Juniata County facility with a potential date being July 4, 2020. Be on the lookout for more information on next year’s event.

“Everybody at Port Royal Speedway and the entire Fair Board did a great job in making sure this event ran smoothly from start to finish and I can’t thank them enough for all of their support,” said Sherry Hodnett, Greg’s wife. “It was a great day and I really appreciate everybody coming out to support the event and all of my volunteers, team members and sponsors were invaluable to making this event successful.”

“The fans were amazing, and the support was above and beyond. Thank you for sticking out the weather and being part of a truly memorable event for a cause dear to our hearts. I’m looking forward to next year and hopefully we can continue to make this a special event for years to come. I think Greg would be proud and honored,” she added.

Event shirts sold out early in the night. There will be a reorder and plans are to have them back in stock and available by the August 3rd Living Legends Dream Race at the Speedway. Information on future events and more can be found at www.greghodnettfoundation.com and also on their Facebook page.

Other shirts and foundation apparel will be available at speedways throughout the region and eventually there will be an online store for purchasers wanting to buy online.

 

 

Wolfe Wins Inaugural Greg Hodnett Classic, Speedweek Title As Well

 PORT ROYAL, Pa- Lucas Wolfe outlasted the rain and a field of hungry drivers in search of victory on an emotional night that saw the Port Royal Speedway close out a grueling 9 race stretch for PA Speedweek and honor the legacy of Greg Hodnett to pick up the $7,027 Weikert's Livestock 410 Sprint Car win and the Greg Hodnett Classic.

 The win was Wolfe's second of the season at 'The Speed Palace' and helped the Mechanicsburg native claim his 4th career PA Speedweek title, which was worth an additional $5000. Wolfe also set fast-time earlier in the night and picked up the Packers Concessions fast time award worth $100.

 "I'm extremely thankful and grateful to have a great team behind me that allows me to be competitive every time we hit the track," said Wolfe. "PA Speedweek can be tough on a team and we came to the track each night with a car worthy of sitting in victory lane and I'm extremely happy to finish it off with a victory in front of a big crowd of fans and great drivers."

 The feature event kicked off with a bit of nostalgia, as 5- race cars representing Hodnett's career in Pennsylvania paced the field while the rest of the field performed a missing man formation in honor of the late-great driver and 2018 PA Speedweek champion. Freddie Rahmer (Al Hamilton #77) and Anthony Macri (Jim and Sandy Kline #22) drove throwback paint scheme's honoring Hodnett along with Cory Haas piloting the Trone Outdoor 39 in normal fashion. Injured driver Ryan Smith piloted a Hodnett #27 for the opening ceremonies while Daryl Stimeling piloted a replica of the Apple #12.

 Track points leader Logan Wagner and AJ Flick led the field to the field to the green flag with Flick jumping out to the early lead using the high side of the speedway in turn’s 1 and 2 while Robbie Kendall used the bottom of the speedway to move into the second position in the same turn.

 Wolfe, from his fourth starting position, also followed suit and passed Wagner exiting turn 2 to slide into the 3rd position on the opening circuit.

 Flick was in cruise control before the red flag was thrown on lap 4 when Mike Wagner took a wild ride on the backstretch and got upside down multiple times. He would walk away from the crash unscathed.

 When green green flag action resumed, Flick once again set sail, opening a nearly 1.5 second lead by lap 8. While Flick slid around the high line of the speedway, Kendall was making ground on the bottom of the speedway.

 4 laps later, Kendall had cut the lead in half. Meanwhile, Wednesday's winner at the Speedway, Lance Dewease had overtaken Wagner for the fourth position from his fifth starting spot.

 On lap 13, Kendall was within striking distance of the leader, showing his nose multiple times on the bottom of the speedway exiting the turns. With Flick hitting lap traffic of lap 14, Kendall made a move. He'd repeat the move in turn's 1 and 2 the next two laps. This allowed Wolfe to pounce, as he capitalized on Kendall's aggressiveness to pass him for 2nd down the backstretch on lap 16.

 One lap later, Flick's shot at victory would end as he blew a right rear tire while leading entering turn 1 of the speedway,

 With the lead firmly in his grasp, Wolfe was ready for all challenges.

 "AJ has had a lot of bad luck this year with right rear tires, so in some ways we were in the right spot at the right time," said Wolfe. "But I knew we had a fast race car and you like to think you could get by him anyways. As a driver you have got to capitalize on those moments and I knew there were a lot of fast race cars behind us wanting it as well."

 Wolfe shot out again on the restart, but Kendall wasn't going away. A one-time winner this season at the Lincoln Speedway, Kendall was hoping to throw a wrench into Wolfe's plans of victory. Over the next two laps, Kendall stayed within striking distance, using the bottom of the speedway to Wolfe's top.

 However, Wolfe would soon show that he was not waiting around, opening a nearly 1.3 second lead by lap 20. On lap 21, Wolfe's lead evaporated as TJ Stutts blew a right rear tire on the backstretch.

 On the restart, it was Wolfe once again jumping out to the lead with muscle. Dewease slid Kendall in turn's 1 and 2 and it looked like he might be vying for an encore performance of his late race move Wednesday night. However Kendall proved to be no fluke as he used the bottom of the speedway the following lap to slide back by Dewease for second in turn's 1 and 2.

 Kendall would move to the top of the speedway and attempt to track down Wolfe. Over the final 5 laps, Kendall was able to cut Wolfe’s lead nearly in half, but it wasn’t nearly enough as Wolfe cruised to a 1.070 second victory for the victory and the Speedweek title. Dewease, Danny Dietrich and James McFadden rounded out the top 5.

 "We were really good out front and it’s a great feeling to be sitting in victory lane," said Wolfe. "The fans stayed all night and the track worked hard to outlast the rain. And to do it on a night where we honored a great driver like Greg, I couldn't be more happy for my guys and this team."

 Wagner, Kyle Reinhardt, Rico Abreu, Haas and Rahmer completed the top 10.

 Route 35 GRIT Series

 On a night where his dad was announced as an honoree for this season Living Legends Race at Port Royal Speedway, Nick Dickson picked up his first River Valley Builders Super Late Model victory of the season during the Grit House Route 35 Challenge Series Late Models feature.

 "Given the weather circumstances, a lot of tracks would've pulled the plug tonight," said Dickson. "We started seventh and passed all those cars to get here, so I’d say it was a good night and good track."

 Dylan Yoder and Bryan Bernheisel led the field to the green flag with Yoder jumping out to the early lead. Gene Knaub followed as well and he slid into the second position on lap 1 as well.

 The following lap, Dickson started making his move, as he passed Andy Haus for fifth position exiting turn four heading to the line. The caution would come out the dame lap when Chris Casner got turned around in turn 1.

 On the restart, Yoder's chances came to an end when he slowed to a stop coming out of turn 4 with a right rear flat tire. This handed the lead to Kyle Hardy, who jumped out to the lead once green flag action returned. One lap later it was Austin Berry slowing with a flat tire as well.

 Hardy jumped out again to a hefty lead as green flag action returned. Dickson, who passed Bernheisel just prior to the caution for fourth, inherited the 3rd position thanks to Yoder's issues. Four laps later he moved around Knaub at the flag stand and he set his sights on Hardy.

 Hardy caught the tail end of lap traffic on lap 14 and while it appeared Dickson would be able to catch him, he was using the lap cars to his advantage and began to put distance between himself and the field.

 However his night would end on lap 16 when he too blew a right rear tire while leading in turn three. This was all Dickson would need.

 Following another caution for Berry getting sideways on lap 17, Dickson would hold off Haus and Knaub to win his first victory of the season at 'The Speed Palace' by 1.674 seconds. He received $2200 for his efforts.

 Bernheisel and Jeff Rine completed the top five.

 "Kyle would have been tough to beat without his issues," said Dickson. "He was so good on the top and the track was getting harder and harder to pass on the bottom."

 "Even in the sprint car feature, tires were an issue. I knew he was running hard up there and I figured If I waited and was patient, I’d have a chance. Tonight just worked out for us and I'm super happy."

 Rick Eckert, Shaun Jones, Gary Stuhler, Hayes Mattern and Mike Lupfer filled out the top 10

URC Sprints To Stage 62nd Club Event At Williams Grove Friday

Interesting history couples series and oval since 1948

7/7/19

When the URC Sprints roll into Williams Grove Speedway this Friday on Leffler Energy Night, the event will mark the 62nd appearance by the traveling club at the historic oval since the two began entertaining each other back in 1948.

The first-ever URC winner at the track in ’48 was Harold “Lucky” Lux of Lebanon.

Lux was a winner on both the AAA and URC circuits in his career before he met a tragic fate in a fiery tractor-trailer accident near Kennett Square in early October 1956.

After that maiden Lux win, other victors through the 1950s and 60s included Speed McFee, Bobby Courtwright, Eddie Galione, Earl Halaquist, Gus Linder, Ray Tilley and many others.

Prior to the mid 1980s at Williams Grove, URC competition at the track took place as part of unlimited sprint car action but by 1985 when URC made a comback to the oval for the first time since 1970, an engine limit of 360 cubic inches had been imposed.

Since that time, no driver has won more URC-sanctioned races at Williams Grove Speedway than the late Greg Hodnett.

Hodnett succumbed to injuries sustained in an area sprint car accident last September.

Hodnett owns a total of six URC 360 wins at the track, having taken his first in 2015 and his last in May of last season including a string of four in a row between 2015 and 2016.

Second to Hodnett on the win list is active driver Mark Smith of Sunbury, who owns five features dating back to his first in 2010 with his most recent coming in 2017.

Other URC winners at the track over the years of 360 engine limits have been oval sprint regulars Fred Rahmer, Lance Dewease, Pat Cannon, Chad Layton, Aaron Ott, Daryn Pittman and more.

Among those 360 winners who have toured with the series and taken Grove wins are Dave Kelly, Kramer Williamson, Pete Green, Curt Michael, Kevin Welsh, Robbie Stillwaggon and others.

Two other winners of note who have made rare starts at the track in an effort to invade and steal the loot have been Tony Stewart and Kenny Adams.

And so the stage is set for the continuing legacy of URC Sprint Car Series competition at Williams Grove Speedway coming up this Friday, July 12 at 8 pm.

Track regulars who are expected to compete in both 410 sprint and URC Sprint action include Lucas Wolfe, Steve Buckwalter, Kyle Reinhardt and possibly Ryan Smith.

URC card carriers who will be racing to maintain the integrity of the club will be series point leader Chad Layton along with Curt Michael, Josh Weller, Troy Betts and Austin Bishop.

Gates open at 6 pm.

Adult general admission is set at $17 with youth ages 13 – 20 admitted for $10. Kids ages 12 and under are always admitted for FREE at Williams Grove Speedway.

The URC contingent will be led to the track by Harrisburg’s Chad Layton who is the current URC point leader over Josh Weller of Mertztown.

Layton has scored a pair of wins on the URC circuit so far this season.

The late Greg Hodnett won the only URC visit of the season to the track in 2018.

In 410 sprint action at the track so far in 2019, Freddie Rahmer, Lance Dewease and point leader Danny Dietrich have scored the lion’s share of victories, having taken three each to account for nine of 11 main events contested.

In a quest for his first career Williams Grove track title, Gettysburg’s Dietrich has a commanding point lead over Freddie Rahmer, holding sway by more than 400 points.

On the restart, this time it was Blane Heimbach, from the second row, grabbing the lead when the caution flew again for Josh Weller.

On the third restart Reinhardt held of Heimbach, Keller, Austin Bishop and Mark Smith.

By lap two Smith was up to third and Chad Layton raced into the top five. As Reinhardt sliced through traffic Heimbach had trouble with Smith catching and briefly passing him.

Greg Jones brought out the red flag when he rolled his racer onto the side in the third turn. Jones was uninjured.

Heimbach tried to slide under Reinhardt on the restart but Reinhardt held him off. Layton also tested Smith for third and Ryan Kissinger roared into fifth.

By lap 20 Smith slid under Heimbach in the second turn only to have Heimbach return the favor in the fourth turn. Once by, Smith started to fade and Layton took over third.

In the final laps Heimbach ran the cushion and closed on Reinhardt but could not get by him. Reinhardt won by 2.176 seconds over Heimbach, Layton, Smith and Derek Locke.

Layton, Kissinger and Heimbach were sprint car heat winners.

Gene Knaub blasted to the lead to start the late model feature from the outside pole and was followed by Brett Schadel, Bryan Bernheisel, Mike Lupfer, and Dylan Yoder.

The caution flew on lap two when Kenny Trevitz, Nathan Long, and Jerry Bard got together in the third turn.

Using the Delaware double file restart, Knaub held the lead but a great battle between Schadel and Bernheisel developed, while Jeff Rine raced into the top five.

On lap 13 Yoder caught and passed Schadel. The pair battled for a lap before Yoder took the spot permanently.

Yoder continued flying around the top and passed Bernheisel for second on lap 23 and started to chip into Knaub’s lead but even with the five additional laps Yoder was able to get to Knaub’s rear bumper but could not get around the leader trailing by .307 seconds at the checkered flag.

Schadel, Bernheisel and Rine rounded out the top five.

Late model heats were won by Schadel and Knaub.

Shaun Lawton took the pro stock lead over Ray Rothfuss, Kyle Bachman, Brandon Moser and AJ Stroup. Moser slowed on the track bringing out a lap two caution.

Stroup shot around Bachman on lap three to take over the runner up position but Bachman kept the pressure on racing the inside. Brad Mitch stopped on the backstretch on lap 11 slowing the field again.

Lawton pulled to a sizable lead after the restart winning for the fourth time in a row by 2.083 seconds over Stroup, Bachman, John Schoch and Rothfuss.

AJ Hoffman and Moser were victorious in the pro stock heats.

Bob Bussey took the high line in turn one to take the roadrunner lead from Smith Cope, Jake Jones, Curtis Lawton and Hunter Shelley.

Cope passed Bussey high in lap two to take the lead and two laps later Jones was running second. Jimmy Kessler spun in turn two to slow the field on lap six.

Cope got out of shape on the restart and Jones took the lead with Bussey on his tail. Bussey dogged Jones the rest of the way but could not get by. Lawton, Cope and Brian Mabus rounded out the top five.

Will Brunson and Bussey won the roadrunner heats.

Dewease Triumphs at Port Royal During PA Speedweek, Reinhardt Claims URC Feature

By Justin Snyder

PORT ROYAL, Pa- Up until Wednesday night, nobody had been able to double up in the win column of the 2019 PA Speedweek Series. Four nights in, there had been four different winners.

Lance Dewease made sure that changed at Port Royal Speedway when he charged from the 8th starting position to pass Logan Wagner with 2 laps to go to pick up the $7000 Weikert's Livestock 410 Sprint Car victory in front of a packed house of fans for his second win of the week.

"I was able to get rolling there late and carry some speed through the corners," said Dewease. "I was fortunate to get to Logan before we got to the checkered and it was a good night for us."

Danny Dietrich and A.J. Flick led the field to the green flag with Flick jumping out to the early lead using the outside of turn's one and two to pull past Dietrich down the backstretch. Making his first PA Speedweek appearance of the year, Flick set sail with a blistering pace, stretching his lead to over 1 second by lap 4.

Over the next four laps, Dietrich slowly was reeling in the leader, making his move on lap 9 in turn's one and two with a slide-job attempt. Flick crossed back under Dietrich exiting turn 2 to foil the attempt. Dietrich tried again in turn 4 with the same results. It looked like Dietrich had enough momentum the following circuit to pull off the pass, however Aaron Reutzel spun and kept going, bringing out the caution to put Flick back in the lead for the restart.

On the restart, Dietrich once again tried to slide Flick in turn's one and two, with Flick once again pulling ahead of the Gettysburg, Pa native exiting turn 2. However, with the field close behind, Wagner used the opportunity to pull ender Dietrich down the backstretch and to take over the second position.

One lap later Dewease cracked the top five for the first time and began to make his move forward as he passed Brock Zearfoss for fifth at the start/finish line.

Over the next two laps, Wagner was sizing up Flick when he made his move using the bottom of turn three and four to take the lead and lead lap 13.Wagner checked out and built up a nearly 2 second lead over the next 2 laps. At the same time, Dewease got past the 91 car of Kyle Reinhardt for the 4th position using the top of the speedway exiting turn 4.

As Wagner was pulling away, Dewease was stalking the tail tank of Dietrich. It looked like he was going to pass him for the third position, but before he could complete the pass the caution flew again for Reutzel, who this time had a tire go flat. While under caution, Flick's shot at victory went out the window as well as he had a right rear tire go flat, handing second to Dietrich for the restart on lap 20. Flick would rejoin the field after changing the tire.

"We were really good all night and it was just a matter of getting to the front and being patient," said Wagner. "I didn’t really know what was going on behind me, but I was feeling good there before that caution."

It wouldn't be the last caution though. Following the lap 20 restart Wagner once again jumped out to the lead with Dietrich and Dewease in tow. But the field would slow again following a caution for a slowing Jeff Miller, who caught the outside guardrail in turn 3 on lap 22 and stopped on the front stretch.

On what would be the last restart, Wagner again jumped out to a large lead. He was using the top of the speedway, while Dietrich tried different lines in both corners to make up the difference and hold off Dewease, who was rolling through the middle of the corners. Finally able to pass Dietrich, Dewease moved into the second position on lap 26 at the line and set his sights on closing the 1.169 second lead Wagner held.

With 2 laps to go, Wagner held a .547 lead over Dewease, who also was searching the speedway for the fastest line to catch Wagner. Using the bottom of the Speedway in turn's 1 and 2 and the middle in turn's 3 and 4 he'd been chipping away at it. Finally Dewease was able to pull alongside of Wagner down the backstretch and pull ahead of him exiting turn 4 to lead the white flag lap.

Wagner would try to once again to build up some momentum around the top of the speedway and he was able to make it close exiting turn 4 coming to the checkers. But ultimately Dewease would take the win by .194 seconds over Wagner, Dietrich, Freddie Rahmer and Reinhardt.

"That's how this place is. If you’re right you can move around," said Dewease of finding the perfect line to catch Wagner. "I was carrying speed off the corner and I could really get runs at him. I was just fortunate enough to get to him before we got the checkers."

Wagner was happy with a second, but ultimately he wished Dewease had gotten to him earlier to be able to make a move back by.

"It was checkers or wreckers and I was really giving it everything I had out there," said Wagner, who is the current track point leader. "Sometimes it's better to be sitting in second at that point so you can kind of see where he's running and such. If he'd gotten to me earlier, I might have had something for him there at the end . But ultimately we can’t be too upset with a second."

The win also moved Dewease into the PA Speedweek Points Lead despite missing an event as he holds a 12 point advantage over Wolfe. Rahmer (-27), Dietrich (-68) and Macri (-98) make up the top 5 heading into Hagerstown.

Zearfoss, Anthony Macri, Steve Buckwalter, Rico Abreu and Dylan Cisney rounded out the top 10.

URC 360 Sprint Cars

Kyle Reinhardt would back up a top five feature finish in the Weikert's Livestock 410 Sprint Car feature with a win in the United Racing Club 360 Sprint Car portion of the event at Port Royal Speedway.

The win was worth $2,000 and was the young driver's first at the 'Speed Palace'.

Reinhardt lined up on the outside front row alongside of Steven Drevicki and jumped out to the early lead before the red flag came out after a 5-car pile up in turn 3 which ended with Michael Walter on his side. All drivers were ok.

At the restart, Reinhardt once again pulled out to the lead to lead lap 1. One lap later Lucas Wolfe, who started fourth, used the top of the speedway exiting turn 2 to pass Drevicki for the second position.

As Reinhardt was checking out, the race or third was getting wild. Third place driver Derek Locke dodged a spinning lapped car with 12 to go, which allowed Jason Shultz, Mark Smith and Steve Buckwalgter to close the gap. Smith would roll through the middle of turn 3 and 4 before taking over the third position just past the start finish line.

With two laps to go, Smith would use a lapped car in front of Wolfe as a pick to slide ahead into the second position, with Buckwalter in tow. However, nobody had anything for Reinhardt as he won the feature by a convincing 3.077 second advantage over Smith, Buckwalter, Schutz and Wolfe.

Chad Layton, Locke, Tyler Ross, Drevicki and Austin Bishop rounded out the top 10

THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES

NAPA AUTO PARTS CELEBRATES 30TH ANNIVERSARY OF THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES AT GRANDVIEW. . . . . .

CHRISTOPHER BELL POCKETS $10,000, JEFF STRUNK WINS MOD THRILLER AS GRANDVIEW DEFEATS MOTHER NATURE TUESDAY NIGHT, JULY 2

BECHTELSVILLE, PA (July 2, 2019) – Mother Nature offered a reprieve to race fans Tuesday Night at Grandview Speedway, providing just enough clear weather for Norman, Oklahoma’s Christopher Bell to claim the 410 Sprint Car main event, while Boyertown, Pennsylvania’s Jeff Strunk scored the win in the Modified portion of the double-header event. A big crowd turned out for the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill event attracting a field of thirty 410 sprint cars and thirty-eight modifieds. The battles were plentiful all night but the biggest story was how the Grandview Speedway track crew fought back after a thunder stormed drenched the speedway surface. The outstanding work by the track crew with help from the modifieds quickly returned the speedway back into race ready conditions after a one hour and fifteen minute rain delay. As the checker flag fell on the modified feature, the rain once again began to fall, but the show in its entirety was presented.

Bell used up every inch of the racetrack on his way to a $10,000 payday as part of Pennsylvania Sprint Car Speedweek. The was Bells first ever Thunder on the Hill Racing Series victory.

“I had a hard time figuring out where the car worked best, I just kept moving around,” Bell explained in post-race victory lane ceremonies. “I almost crashed a couple of times.”

Pole-sitter Lucas Wolfe and Bell raced down to the drop of the green, but action slowed quickly for a six-car tangle that sidelined Pennsylvania Speedweek point leader, Freddie Rahmer.

Bell didn’t bat an eye on the ensuing restart racing around Wolfe and disappearing from the competition – a man on a mission, Bell encountered lapped traffic on the 8th circuit dodging slower cars with his sight set on the winner’s purse.

James McFadden, aboard the Kasey Kahne Racing No. 9 machine, slid passed Wolfe on the 12th lap and it didn’t take long for him to rope in Bell and challenge for the lead. The red flag flew just prior to the halfway when Jessie Attard got upside down in turn three.

Bell had his hands full on the restart with McFadden and Lance Dewease right on his rear bumper.

“I struggled just passed halfway, I used every inch of the race track and tried to block those guys behind me,” Bell explained.

McFadden would make one last-ditch effort for the victory, but ultimately settled for second, Lance Dewease finished in third, Lucas Wolfe in fourth, and past Thunder Cup winner Aaron Reutzel finished in fifth.

Christopher Bell’s sweep included the Quick Time with a lap of 11.617. Heat Races were won by Aaron Reutzel, Lucas Wolfe, Danny Dietrich, and Kyle Reinhardt. Mark Smith scored the win in the B-Main.

Brett Kressley and Mike Gular started on the front row of the NASCAR 358 Modified feature event, with Gular gaining control of the top spot. Gular dominated the first half of the 30-lap event clicking laps off with a strong contingent of Modified drivers behind him.

The top three competitors were door-to-door in the closing portion of the event, with Gular, Kressley, and Strunk all moving to the point in a single lap. Strunk would score the upper hand threading three-wide between Gular and Kressley.

Strunk led the final ten laps of the feature event with Kressley well within striking distance and riding the rear bumper of #126 on the final lap. Kressley rolled home in second, Mike Gular finished in third, Craig VonDohren in fourth, and Duane Howard rounding out the top five. Kressley worked his way to victory lane, but this time to congratulate the great run by Strunk. The thirty lap modified win was worth $3,000.

NASCAR Modified Heat Races were won by Don Norris, Jr., Steve Young, Brett Kressley, and Ryan Watt. Consolations were won by Craig Whitmoyer and Glenn Strunk.

Rain delayed the start of the event with 410 Sprint Car Time Trials finally rolling off at 8:45 PM, the rain fell again at the drop of the checkered flag.

The 30th Anniversary season of the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series continues on Tuesday, July 30 at Grandview Speedway with the USAC NOS Energy Drink Midget National Championship event dubbed Ken Brenn Midget Masters. NASCAR 358 Modifieds are also on the card.

CISNEY WINS ROUND THREE OF THE PA SPRINT CAR SPEEDWEEK SERIES SUNDAY NIGHT AT SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY; DUKE SCORES 305 SPRINT CAR VICTORY

SELINSGROVE, Pa. -- Dylan Cisney towed up Route 35 from Port Royal to take his first career win at Selinsgrove Speedway Sunday night in round three of the nine-race Pennsylvania Sprint Car Speedweek Series.

The victory in the 30-lap Opperman/Bogar Memorial was worth $5,000 at the wheel of the Valley Supply No. 5.

Danny Dietrich of Gettysburg was the Fast Tees Fast Qualifier over the 26-car field with a lap time of 18.057.

Ken Duke of Selinsgrove powered to his first career win on the half-mile track in the 20-lap 305 sprint car main event.

Both winners of the open wheel doubleheader Sunday night got their racing starts in go karts and micro sprint cars on the speedway’s smaller one-fifth mile track.

Selinsgrove Speedway will be back in action at 7:30 p.m. this Thursday, July 4, with a special mid-week show featuring Firecracker 30-lap features for both the 360 sprint cars and super late models paying $3,000 to win. The pro stocks and roadrunners will also be on the holiday racing card. Track gates will open at 5 p.m.

There will be no racing at the track on Saturday, July 6.

Track officials made a huge announcement Sunday night that the Jim Nace Memorial 37th Annual National Open for the 410 sprint cars on Saturday, Sept. 14, will pay $20,000 to win.

A multi-car melee unfolded as the field charged off the fourth turn to take the green flag at the start of the 410 sprint car feature, collecting Danny Dietrich, Ryan Smith, Freddie Rahmer, Mike Walter and Kyle Moody with all but Dietrich able to rejoin the race.

Polesitter Blane Heimbach shot to the front when the race got restarted. He was followed by Dylan Cisney, Kyle Reinhardt, Lucas Wolfe and Tony Stewart.

Reinhardt smacked the second turn wall on lap three bringing out the caution flag.

Heimbach opened a lead while the battle on the track was for third between defending race winner Wolfe and Stewart. Heimbach had built up a three-second lead by the time he drove into lapped traffic and by the midway point Stewart had started to make a charge to the front and was dogging Cisney for second.

Stewart shot into second on lap 17 coming off the fourth turn but Cisney battled back for the position.

The red flag came out when Ryan Smith, who had returned to the field after the first lap crash, lost his top wing and crashed hard into the first turn fence. A palpable silence hung over the speedway until it was announced the popular Smith was all right and a loud cheer from the fans broke the silence.

A lengthy break was needed to clean up the fuel that was spilled. During the stop, Heimbach changed his wing and was sent to the back of the pack, handing the lead to Cisney.

Wolfe used the outside lane on the restart to get by Stewart for the runner up position while Brock Zearfoss took over third. He and Stewart performed a high-speed dance around the speedway as Cisney drove away.

“That race belonged to Heimbach and it’s too bad what happened but I’d rather be lucky than good.” Cisney said. “Back in 2002 my dad and I stood here after my first kart win so this is unbelievable. I got some new sponsors this year and it has allowed us to travel a little bit but I’m still not good on little tracks so it feels good to get back here.”

Cisney beat Stewart by 1.5 seconds followed by Wolfe, Zearfoss and Anthony Macri.

Macri, Cisney and Heimbach won the 410 sprint car heats. Jared Esh won the B-Main.

Ken Duke blasted to the lead in the 305 sprint car feature and was followed by Cale Reigle, Larry McVay, Jake Waters, and Kruz Kepner. Kepner spun on the first lap, bringing out the yellow flag. Ryan Lynn started his charge up through the field and on the sixth lap had second spot in his pocket. Taking the long way around, Lynn started to close on Duke.

Landon Wood spun and slowly rolled on his side to bring out the red on lap 10.

In the waning laps as Duke drove away Dave Grube and Cale Reigle battled for third with Devin Adams soon joining the fray.

After wining many kart and micro races at Raceway Park, Duke claimed his first Selinsgrove big track win over Adams, Reigel, Grube and Rumsey.

305 sprint car heats were won by Larry McVay, Christian Ramsey and Zach Newlin. The B-Main went to Kenny Heffner.

Abbottstown, PA (June 29, 2019) – Chad Trout drew the pole for Saturday night’s 30-lap feature. Despite the excellent starting spot, it wasn’t easy sailing into victory lane for Trout’s second career 410 win.

Trout started on the pole with Australian, Darren Mollenoyux on the outside of row 1 at Lincoln Speedway on Saturday night for the Kevin Gobrecht Memorial. Brian Montieth lined up third with Danny Dietrich, who swept both Speedweek races at Lincoln in 2018, starting fourth.

Mollenoyux took the lead when the green flag dropped with Trout running second and Montieth running third. Friday night’s winner Lance Dewease got up to fifth from his seventh starting spot. Dietrich moved into third on lap two after getting under Montieth in turns 1 and 2.

The leaders caught lapped traffic on lap 7. Trout nearly beat Mollenoyux to the line for the lead on lap 8. Trout took the lead on lap 9 coming out of turn 4. The top five were running under a blanket with Mollenoyux challenging Trout to take the lead back. Mollenoyux got Trout back at the line on lap 14 for the lead. Trout passed him back the next lap with Dewease, Montieth, Ryan Smith and Dietrich battling for third.

Smith was coming on fast when the yellow came out on lap 16 for Landon Myers who slowed on the track.

Trout got a good jump on the restart with Montieth going to the bottom to try for second. Smith got around Dewease in turns 1 and 2 for fifth.

Montieth was coming on strong and tried a slider lap 22 in turns 1 and 2 and nearly took himself and Trout out. Montieth was all over Trout as they approached lapped traffic on lap 23.

Montieth got Trout going down the backstretch on lap 24 for the lead and Dietrich followed. The caution came out on lap 25 for Dewease who ended up facing the wrong way on the front stretch with a right front flat tire.

Montieth led Dietrich, Trout, Mollenoyux and Smith to the cone for the restart with five laps to go.

Montieth was battling engine issues and was only firing seven cylinders for much of the race and Dietrich hunted him down. Dietrich tried to take the lead in turns 3 and 4 on lap 27 and took out Montieth and himself. The red flag came out for Montieth who took a wild ride in turn 4 as a result of the contact with Dietrich.

Trout inherited the lead and held on to the spot for the final three laps to win his second career 410 race and the $7,000 check. Mollenoyux crossed the line second. Smith finished third. Freddie Rahmer finished fourth and Cory Haas finished fifth after starting sixteenth.

Heat winners were TJ Stutts, Darren Mollenoyux, Adam Wilt and Danny Dietrich. Steve Buckwalter won the B-main.

Jeremy Ott Charges to Legends Victory

Travis McClelland started on the pole of the 20-lap feature with Zach Smith sharing the front row. McClelland took the lead when the green flag dropped as Brian Racine challenged Smith for second. Racine took second as Smith got shuffled back to fourth.

With McClelland out front the battle behind him for position was heated as positions four through ten were running under a blanket. Jeremy Ott was running in the top five from his eleventh starting spot after only five laps.

The caution came out on lap 6 for Brian Racine who got spun around in turn 2 while running third.

McClelland led Mason Chaney, Alex Robinson, Harlon Leppo and Ott to the cone for the restart. Chaney was on McClelland’s bumper on the restart with McClelland holding onto the lead.

The caution came out again on lap 9 as Chaney lost a fender and made contact with the leader, McClelland, in turn 4.

Chaney led the field to the cone for the restart and spun out in turn 2 bringing out another caution.

Robinson inherited the lead with Leppo, Bill Diehl, Ott and Chris Transeau in line behind him.

Leppo challenged Robinson for the lead on the restart with Robinson holding onto the position. Leppo, Diehl and Ott made it a three-way battle for second with Ott taking the spot-on lap 11.

Ott chased down Robinson to battle for the lead with Diehl in tow. Ott ran wheel to wheel with Robinson in turns 3 and 4 on lap 16 taking the lead at the line on lap 17.

Robinson got spun around in turns 3 and 4 on the next lap bringing out the caution.

Ott led the field to the cone for the restart with three laps remaining. Diehl was on Ott’s bumper, challenging him for the lead. Diehl tried the top of turns 1 and 2 but couldn’t get a run to make the pass. Ott held onto win with Diehl crossing the line second. Leppo finished third. Aaron Updegraff was fourth and Transeau completed the top five.

Saturday night’s win was Ott’s second Legend’s win in a row at Lincoln.

Williams Grove 31st Annual Mitch Smith Memorial Is Friday Night

Crown Jewel of Speedweek offers purse worth nearly $36,000!

6/30/19

Mechanicsburg - Williams Grove Speedway will present the biggest race of the 2019 Pennsylvania Speedweek Series this Friday night, July 5 at 7:30 pm when it hosts the 31st 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 $12,000 to wiin out of a total purse worth nearly $36,000 thanks in part to contributions from the Smith family.

The 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.

 

 

Williams Grove Honors Career, Impact & Legacy Of Mitch Smith Friday

31st annual running of Mitch Smith Memorial on tap

6/30/19
 

Mechanicsburg – When Williams Grove Speedway opens its gates this Friday night for racing action, it will do so for the 31st year in a row in honor of a famed sprint car great, the late Mitch Smith of Linglestown.

The oval will host the 31st annual Mitch Smith Memorial as part of Pennsylvania Speedweek on July 5 at 7:30 pm.

And the spectacle to honor Smith will pay a very hefty $12,000 to win out of the largest speedweek purse to be posted in all 2019 series events.

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 31st annual Mitch Smith Memorial on Friday night.

Lance Dewease is the defending Smith Memorial winner and the winningest driver in event history.

Dewease scored wins in 1992, 1995, 1997, 2001 and in 2018.

Fred Rahmer has four Smith Memorials to his credit.

Stevie Smith won the inaugural event in 1989.

Dewease Opens Speedweek With Williams Grove Win,

Hammaker Makes It Two In A Row In 358s

6/28/19

Mechanicsburg – Lance Dewease pocketed his 96th career sprint car win at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night with a flag to flag performance in the Pennsylvania Speedweek opener, worth $5,000.

The Fayetteville driver took the victory by a 7.571 second margin over Brian Montieth in what was a nonstop event. The win was the 27th Dewease’s career in speedweek action.

In the 358 sprint car main, Doug Hammaker drove by Kevin Nouse to get his second win of the year at the track in as many weeks.

Dewease took the lead from the pole of the 25-lap 410 sprint car main with TJ Stutts giving chase.

Fifth starter Brian Montieth was up to third by lap seven and the leaders entered the rear of the field on the eighth tour with Dewease holding a half straightaway lead.

Dewease had a 2.5 second advantage at the halfway point as Montieth began to battle with Stutts for second.

The pair swapped the spot twice with 10 laps to go before Montieth finally took the spot for keeps.

Seventh starter Freddie Rahmer continued his advancement forward on lap 17 by taking third from Stutts but only after the two made contact on the frontstretch.

By lap 20 Dewease had a commanding straightaway lead that was growing with every lap and he would continue to stretch his advantage all the way to the finish.

Dewease had lapped up to the 12th spot before the checkers unfurled.

He and his crew replaced the rear end in the car between his heat race and the main event.

Montieth was second in the race followed by Rahmer, Lucas Wolfe and Stutts.

Sixth through 10th went to Danny Dietrich, Anthony Macri, Robbie Kendall, Cory Haas and Kyle Reinhardt.

Heats went to Stutts, Dietrich, Chase Dietz and Kendall with the consolation going to Adrian Shaffer.

Dewease set quick time over the 32-car field with a lap of 16.840 seconds.

Scott Fisher took the lead at the start of the 20-lap 358 sprint main while seventh starter Doug Hammaker drove into fourth.

Kevin Nouse battled with Fisher for the top spot on only the first lap before getting control with two away while finding Hammaker now up to third.

Nouse worked the top of the track while Hammaker used the bottom groove and steadily drove down Nouse’s advantage.

Hammker worked the inside lane in the first and second turns to drive into control on lap 10 and begin pulling away in traffic.

However the red flag unfurled with five laps to go for a nasty frontstretch flip by Rodney Westhafer, regrouping the field.

Nouse took a shot on the restart and again on another restart with four laps to go but both times Hammaker pulled away with control.

It was the Grantville driver’s eighth career limited sprint car win at the track.

Nouse was second followed by Chris Frank, Scott Fisher and Gregg Foster.

Heats went to Fisher and Nouse.

No One Hit Wonder- Jeff Miller Picks Up Second Win of 2019 in Rookie Season

Dylan Yoder, Todd Snook and Brad Mitch Claim Victories as Wekk

By- Justin Snyder

PORT ROYAL, Pa- Jeff Miller doesn’t want to be a one-hit wonder. When he won his first Weikert's Livestock 410 Sprint Car victory at Port Royal Speedway about a month ago, many were surprised.

But Miller is full of confidence and wanted more. He backed it up by winning again Saturday night during Glick Fire Equipment Juniata County Fire and Rescue Nigh tbesting track point leader Logan Wagner and last weeks winner Lucas Wolfe.

"The last couple of weeks didn’t go as planned and we changed the car around almost 180 degrees," said Miller, a rookie in the 410 ranks this season. "This is the same car we won with earlier this season and wow what a difference we saw tonight."

Another rookie, Tyler Walton, and Ohio native Jack Sodeman led the field to the green flag with Walton jumping out to an early lead using the outside of the speedway in turns one and two to grab the point.

One lap later, Miller began to make his move as he passed Sodeman in turn 3 to move into the second position. The following lap Miller slid Walton in turns one and two to take the lead and he began to check out from the field.

Meanwhile things were getting dicey throughout the field. Sixth starting Jared Esh moved by Walton for the second position in turn three on lap 4, while ninth starting Logan Wagner made a daring move the following lap to go from sixth to third in turn one on the bottom of the speedway. Lucas Wolfe would pass by Wagner on the backstretch as the field began to settle in and try and reel Miller in.

Miller, holding a huge lead, would hit lap traffic on lap 8, while Wagner would slide Wolfe for third on lap 13 using the bottom of turns one and two. Two laps later, with the lap car of Rick Lafferty causing Esh to break his momentum, Wagner rolled through the middle of turns 1 and 2 to move into the second position.

One lap later Wolfe was able to overtake Esh for the third position.

Over the next 7 laps, Wagner would work the entire speedway, using every inch of 'The Speed Palace' to make up ground on the leader. Meanwhile Miller was struggling with the laps cars of Justin Whittall and Walton. On lap 22, Wagner would make his move, driving through the middle of turn 1 in attempt of pulling a slide job, but Miller used momentum coming out of turn 2 to pull away once again.

"I knew Logan was there and you can’t afford to mess around with these guys behind you," said Miller. "Logan is one of the hottest drivers in the country right now, so I knew it was time to go if I was going to hold him off."

Wagner would regroup following the slide-job attempt and once again settle in over the final 3 laps. With a lap car in between him and Miller, Wagner once again sized him up. This time he tried the middle of the speedway through turns 3 and 4, pulling to the tail tank of Miller, however Miller pulled away off the top of the Speedway to take the checkered flag by .377 seconds.

"I kept seeing Logan show his nose and I was holding on with everything I had," said Miller. "I was either going to beat him or stuff it in the fence. Luckily we ended up here in first and I'm super excited for my whole team."

For Wagner, it was a great run from 9th. However, he didn't realize he wasn't leading the race and wished he'd driven a little harder over the final laps.

"We were really good and we got there racing pretty hard with Lucas and I guess we let Miller check out on us," said Wagner, the current Weikert's Livestock 410 Sprint Car points leader. "I thought once we got by Lucas we were leading the race and that's on me 100% as a driver not knowing."

"But shout out to that kid. It’s his second win of the year and he was driving one heck of a race. He was up on the fence banging that right rear off the fence and you got to tip your hat and move on to the next one."

Wolfe, Esh and Blane Heimbach completed the top 5 with Dylan Cisney, Tyler Reeser, TJ Stuttus, Aj Flick and Kyle Smith rounding out the top 10

RESULTS- 1. Jeff Miller 2. Logan Wagner 3. Lucas Wolfe 4. Jared Esh 5. Blane Heimbach 6. Dylan Cisney 7, Tyler Reeser 8. TJ Stutts 9. AJ Flick 10. Kyle Smith 11. Justin Whittall 12. Nicole Bower 13. Tyler Walton 14. Rick Lafferty 15. Ryan Linder 16. Greg Plank 17. Cory Thornton DNF- Steve Buckwalter, Jack Sodeman DNS Mike Wagner, Carl Bowser, Tyler Bear

RYAN SMITH WINS THE COVETED 360 SPRINT CAR KRAMER UP & $3,937!
COLEBY FRYE BECOMES FIRST LATE MODEL REPEAT WINNER;
SHAUN LAWTON PULLS OFF PRO STOCK HAT TRICK;
BRAD KLING TAKES MID-ATLANTIC MODIFIED SEASON DEBUT

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Ryan Smith of Kunkletown showed up at Selinsgrove Speedway Saturday with his eye on the coveted Kramer Cup trophy and took it home with him after a wire-to-wire victory in the 30-lap tribute race honoring the memory of the late Hall of Fame sprint car driver Kramer Williamson.

Smith, at the wheel of the Heffner Racing/Red Robin No. 72, also ended up with $3,937 in prize money including contingencies.

Coleby Frye of Dover became the first repeat super late model feature winner of the year in the 25-lap, $2,000-to-win race.

Shaun Lawton of Bloomsburg pulled off the hat trick with his third consecutive win in the 15-lap pro stock feature, while Brad Kling of Mount Union won the 20-lap Mid-Atlantic modified feature in the division’s only appearance of the season at the track.

Selinsgrove Speedway will be back in action with a two-race weekend on Saturday, June 29, and Sunday, June 30.

Saturday night’s race will feature the 360 sprint cars, super late models, pro stocks, and roadrunners on the track’s annual Kids Night sponsored by the Sunbury Eagles Club. The super late models will race for an increased purse with $2,500 going to the winner. Track gates will open at 5 p.m. with racing slated to begin at 7:30 p.m.

The speedway returns Sunday night at 7:30 p.m. with the Middleswarth Potato Chips Jan Opperman/Dick Bogar Memorial PA Speedweek race for 410 sprint cars plus 305 sprint cars. Track gates will open at 4 p.m.

Ryan Smith blasted into the sprint car lead from the pole and was followed by Troy Betts, Michael Water, Curt Michael and Chad Layton. The caution flew on lap two for Kyle Reinhardt.

Walter got a jump on Betts on the restart and moved to second leaving Betts and Michael to battle for third.
Smith, a veteran who spent several years with the ARDC Midgets and All Star Sprint Cars, sliced his way through the traffic opening a straightaway lead but in the waning laps started to slow. This allowed Mark Smith, who had come from the back of the pack, to draw close but Ryan Smith held on by just .416 of a second over Mark Smith, Walter, Michael and Layton.

“With about five to go we got into some mud in the second turn and the wheel packed up.” Smith said. “It was really shaking plus I was having trouble getting by the lapped cars. I saw Mark (Smith) was in second for the last two laps but I didn’t know how close he was.”

Michael, Mark Smith and Josh Weller won the sprint car heats.

Dave Zona nosed past Nathan Long at the start/finish line to lead the late model feature. They were followed by Jerry Bard, Jim Yoder and Ken Trevitz. Dick Houtz slammed the third turn wall to bring out the yellow on lap three.

When racing resumed, Bard drove into second and Coleby Frye was in third. Frye moved to second on lap 10 with an outside move on Bard and took off after Zona.

By the halfway point. Frye was beside Zona and took the lead in the second turn. With four laps to go the caution came out for Kevin Palmer wiping out a four second lead. Yoder used the restart to take second and Hayes Mattern third.

Frye became the first repeat winner in the late models with a second victory over Yoder, Mattern, Brett Schadel and Bryan Bernheisel.

“We really like running up here but it’s hard to come from the back.” Frye said. “Well I guess it wasn’t that bad, we won. The crew worked on the track and it was really racey.”

Late model heats went to Bard and Yoder.

Jerry Foster shot into the lead from the outside pole position to start the Mid-Atlantic modified feature and was followed by Cody Williams, Brad Kling, Cody Oliver and Ray Kable. A lap two caution regrouped the field into a side by side restart.

Jimmy Jesmer Jr restarting outside Foster made a charge for the lead but fell back into second when the caution flag flew again. Jester pulled to the infield under caution.

Kling got by Foster to lead lap five and started to open a lead. By the halfway mark, Justin Cullum had passed for second and started to close the distance on the leader but could not catch Kling who won by 1.734 seconds over Cullum, Rick Hulson, Jerry Foster and Oliver

Mid-Atlantic modified heats were won by Kling, Jesmar and Oliver.

After having trouble and not making last week’s feature Brandon Moser drove into the pro stock lead followed by AJ Hoffman, Shaun Lawton, AJ Stroup and Kyle Bachman.

A lap seven caution slowed the field and put Lawton on his tail. Lawton and Moser battled down the back straight with Lawton taking the lead.

Lawton drove to his third consecutive win by 2.94 seconds over Moser, Stroup, Hoffman and Bachman.

Abbottstown, PA (June 22, 2019) – Freddie Rahmer scored his third victory of the season at Lincoln on Saturday night taking home $5,000. Saturday’s race was the annual Fallen Firefighters Night in Memory of Brandon Little. Opening ceremonies included firetrucks, blessing of the helmets and a video remembering fallen firefighters on the new jumbotron.

Rahmer lined up third for the 33-lap feature behind pole-sitter Danny Dietrich and Adam Wilt.

Dietrich went to the top of the track to take the lead on the first lap while Rahmer got under Wilt down the backstretch for second.

As Dietrich caught the tail-end of the field on lap 6, Rahmer was closing in. Rahmer took the lead in turn 4 on lap 7. Dietrich tried to take the lead back coming out of turn 2 but Rahmer held the spot.

When Rahmer struggled to get by a lapped car, Dietrich would get within striking distance. Once Rahmer made the pass he would pull away as Dietrich worked on getting around the same car.

On lap 17 Rahmer was stuck trying to put two cars battling for position down a lap with Dietrich closing the gap. The caution came out on lap 18 for Chad Trout and Brian Montieth in turn 4. As the leaders came around it was a close call as they nearly avoided the stopped cars.

Rahmer led Dietrich, Cory Haas, Adam Wilt and Alan Krimes to the cone for the single file restart. Rahmer went to the bottom on the restart with Dietrich trying the top. Rahmer held onto the lead in turns 1 and 2. Dietrich made a move for the lead in turns 3 and 4 to no avail.

Despite bouncing off the wall in turn 2 on lap 20, Dietrich held on to the second spot.

Haas and Macri were battling for third when contact was made sending Haas into the wall in turn 2. The red flag came out on lap 21 as a result of the wreck.

This time it was Rahmer leading Dietrich, Macri, Krimes and Wilt for the restart.

Rahmer went to the top of the track with Dietrich diving low on the restart. Rahmer once again held onto the lead. Jim Siegel made his way up to fifth on the restart after starting twelfth.

The leaders were running against the cushion at the top of the track when the caution came out on lap 27 for Wilt and Montieth in turn 1.

Dietrich tried a slide job in turns 1 and 2 on the restart but couldn’t make it stick. Siegel got around Krimes for fourth.

Rahmer held on to the lead and beat Dietrich to the line by .738 seconds. Macri crossed the line third. Siegel finished fourth and Krimes completed the top five.

Heat winners were Cory Haas, Adam Wilt, Freddie Rahmer and Glenndon Forsythe. Tim Wagaman won the B-main.

CJ TRACY WINS FALLEN FIREFIGHTERS NIGHT FOR SECOND YEAR IN A ROW

CJ Tracy found himself back in victory lane for the second year in a row on Fallen Firefighters Night at the track. It was Tracy’s third career win at the speedway.

Tracy started on the pole of the 20-lap feature with Kyle Denmyer to his outside. Tracy took the lead when the green flag dropped. Zach Euculano and Dylan Norris were battling for third down the backstretch on lap 1 when the caution came out for Chris Frank in turn 2.

Troy Wagaman got up to fourth on the restart after starting sixth. Wagaman, running the top of the track, was up to third by the second lap.

The caution flag waved again on lap 5. This time it was for Cody Fletcher after he spun around in turn 1.

Tracy led Denmyer, Wagaman, Euculano and Jeff Halligan on the restart. Tracy kept the lead with Wagaman all over Denmyer for second right behind him.

Halligan got up to fourth on lap 9 from his eighth starting spot. The leaders in front of him were running the bottom groove around the track, except for Wagaman who was riding the cushion.

The caution flag made another appearance on lap 12 when Dylan Orwig got spun around in turns 3 and 4. Unable to avoid the stopped car, Wagaman and Halligan made contact with Orwig ending their night. Wagaman had been running third and Halligan was fourth.

Tracy went low on the restart to block Denmyer’s line. It worked as Tracy kept the lead.

Doug Hammaker was up to fourth on lap 13 and went to work on Euculano for third. Hammaker took the spot from Euculano in turn 1 on lap 15.

Tracy lead wire to wire and took the checkered flag over two seconds before Denmyer crossed the line for second. Hammaker held onto third. Euculano finished fourth and Matt Findley rounds out the top five.

Danny Dietrich Darts To Third Williams Grove Win Of Season

Hammaker nets 358 sprint main

6/21/19

Mechanicsburg – Danny Dietrich darted to his third sprint car win of the season Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway, pocketing $3,680 for the victory that was the 22nd of this career at the track.

To get the win, Dietrich made a big move on the opening lap and then ran down Anthony Macri for control.

In the 358 sprint main, Grantville’s Doug Hammaker wired the field for the checkers, the seventh of his career at the oval.

Gettysburg’s Dietrich started sixth in the 25-lap 410 sprint car main and made a slick move on the opening lap to motor up to fourth in the first and second turns.

Macri was fleet at the front during the early going as Dietrich worked his way forward, getting by Brandon Rahmer low in turns three and four on the second lap before using the outside of the same turns to net second from Brett Michalski a lap later.

But by that time, Macri had a sizeable lead however it was an advantage that Dietrich was able to work with as the leaders hit traffic on the ninth tour.

Traffic was hectic and tight on lap 11 when Macri made a nice move to slide between a pair of backmarkers as he raced through the first corner.

Macri seemed to be up to the challenge as he worked both sides of the track but by lap 17 he committed to the bottom groove in the first and second corners and that allowed Dietrich to rip the top and gain massive ground for the lead.

That momentum gained by Dietrich allowed him to catch Macri and with just over five laps to go he drove under the leader in the third corner to come up with command by just .098 seconds at the line.

Macri then fell behind as Dietrich pulled away to the finish to pick up the win by 1.655 seconds.

With a blown head gasket in victory lane, Dietrich talked about his race.

“I got a pretty good start," he said.

“You could really haul some mail around the top but you had to run it really hard.”

Landon Myers crossed the line with a career best third at the track.

Steve Buckwalter rode home fourth followed by Brandon Rahmer.

Sixth through 10th went to Brian Montieth, Robbie Kendall, Adrian Shaffer, TJ Stutts and Dylan Cisney.

Heats went to Michalski, Rahmer and Cory Haas with the consolation race going to Ryan Smith.

Doug Hammaker started on the pole for the limited sprint main and never looked back on his way to his first win of the season at the track.

Troy Wagaman trailed him for the duration and on the final lap when Hammaker got bottled up in traffic, Wagaman was able to get close but to no avail.

After starting eighth Kevin Nouse drove up to third for the finish followed by Dylan Norris and Steve Buckwalter.

Heats went to Hammaker, Buckwalter and Nouse.

SIXTH ANNUAL KRAMER CUP WILL HONOR MEMORY OF RACING LEGEND KRAMER WILLIAMSON THIS SATURDAY AT SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY; SUPER LATE MODELS, MID-ATLANTIC MODIFIEDS & PRO STOCKS ROUND OUT RACING CARD

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Selinsgrove Speedway will present the Sixth Annual Kramer Cup sanctioned by the United Racing Club at 7:30 p.m. this Saturday, June 22, to honor the memory of sprint car racing legend Kramer Williamson of Palmyra. The 30-lap 360 sprint car race will pay $2,573 to win and $273 to start.

Joining the 360 sprint cars on Reinhart Food Services Night will be the super late models in a 25-lap feature paying $2,000 to win along with the annual appearance by the Mid-Atlantic modifieds and the pro stocks.

Grandstand and pit gates will open at 5 p.m.

Kramer Williamson succumbed to injuries he sustained in a sprint car racing accident at the Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown in August of 2013.

For most of his racing career, Williamson drove the famous “Pink Panther” No. 73 sprint car and won hundreds of races across the country as well as in Australia and Canada. He clinched sprint car track championships at Selinsgrove Speedway and Williams Grove Speedway, where he also was a former winner of the prestigious Williams Grove National Open.

In 2008, Williamson was recognized for his incredible accomplishments in auto racing when he was inducted into the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame in Knoxville, Iowa.

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

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

The qualifying format for the Kramer Cup will include heat races (draw for starting positions) and a B-main. The winner of the 30-lap feature will receive a custom pink trophy cup to commemorate the victory.

Mark Smith of Sunbury has won four of the past five Kramer Cups, with victories in 2014, 2016, 2017, and 2018. Robbie Stillwaggon of Burlington, N.J., scored the prestigious win in 2015.

Members of the Williamson family are expected to be in attendance with one of the Pink Panther No. 73 sprint cars on display at the track. The family will also be presenting various contingency awards including hard charger, halfway leader, and lap sponsorship bonuses.

Race fans and teams are invited to wear pink apparel to honor the memory of Williamson.

Selinsgrove Raceway Park will run a complete program of go kart racing at 7:30 p.m. Friday, June 21. Track gates will open at 5:30 p.m.

Tyler Courtney Wins USAC Eastern Storm Event, Lucas Wolfe Claims 410 Feature

By Justin Snyder

Port Royal, Pa- Bryan Clauson was a legend that transcended all of motorsports. A successful sprint car driver, a multiple time Indianapolis 500 starter and more, Clauson was a hero to fans and drivers alike.

For Tyler Courtney, that admiration was more of a big brother. As a young up and coming driver, Courtney walked into the Clauson racing shop looking for an opportunity and advice. What he got was a mentor, a friend and an inspiration.

Not just on the track, but off the track as well. Whether it was advice about different tracks, driving styles or day to day things, Clauson was always there guiding the young driver along the way.

"He taught me so much and I always have considered him more of a brother then anything," said Courtney. "Mostly he taught me to stay humble and I can honestly say I wouldn’t be the man I am today without his guidance and help."

That's what made losing him so hard when Clauson passed away following an accident in 2016.

"I miss Bryan all the time. It’s hard losing someone so close to you," said Courtney, who got his nickname Sunshine from Clauson as well. "I been trying to make him proud everyday since then."

Clauson would have been proud of the performance Courtney put on Saturday nightas he bested Chris Windom and CJ Leary in dominating fashion to pick up the USAC Eastern Storm feature event presented by www.sprintcarunlimited.com at Port Royal Speedway by 3.150 seconds.

"Today would've been Bryan's 30th birthday, so this one is for him." said Courtney from victory lane. "He did a lot for my career and did a lot for everybody on this team. Even with him not being here, he's helped us more than he knows. We lost a great guy."

Courtney started the feature event on the outside front row next to Windom and jumped out to the early lead using the outside of the speedway in turn's 1 and 2. Nobody else had a chance once Courtney got out front.

By lap 10, Courtney led the field by 1.6 seconds with Windom and Chase Stockon attempting to close the gap. However on lap 11, Courtney's lead was wiped out when Robert Ballou broke in turn 3 with rear end damage.

Meanwhile, 17th starting Brady Bacon had cracked the top 10.

On the restart, it was Courtney quickly jumping out to a large lead again. 5 laps later Kevin Thomas Jr. passed Stockon for 3rd, with Leary, who set quick time earlier in the night, following suit for fourth.

As Thomas Jr. and Leary attempted to track down Windom for second, Courtney was full steam ahead, stretching his lead to nearly 3 seconds by lap 22.

Thomas's night would come to an end 3 laps later as he blew a right-rear tire while battling with Leary in turn 3 and ended up in the fence.

With four lap cars positioned between him and Windom, Courtney just had to hit his marks and make laps. Following a return top green flag action, Courtney again jumped out to a huge lead of nearly 2 seconds within one lap.

Nobody would ever get close, as Courtney cruised to victory and the $6,000 payday

"We've been banging our heads against the wall trying to figure out what we were doing," said Courtney. "We just came to the conclusion that we weren't having fun so we got back to the basics and having fun."

"To get another Eastern Storm win is pretty cool, but to get our momentum going the right way on the Sprint Car side is even more important to us."

Windom, who was looking for his third straight Eastern Storm victory at 'The Speed Palace', had to tip his cap to Courtney and his team.

"Tyler was just better than us and that's really all there is to it," said Windom. "I tried to just save my tires and hopefully we’d be there at the end and something would fall our direction. We'll take a second and move on to the next race."

Stockon and Justin Grant finished out the top 5 with Carson Short, Bacon, Jason McDougal, Jarett Andretti and Joey Biasi finishing out the top 10.

410 Winged Sprint Car Feature

Lucas Wolfe came from the 9th starting spot to claim his first Weikert's Livestock 410 Sprint Car feature event victory of the season at the Port Royal Speedway.

Greg Plank and Justin Whittall led the 22 car field to the green flag with Plank jumping out to the early lead. Plank would lead lap 1 before Whittall used the bottom of the speedway in turns 1 and 2 to take the lead with 3rd starting Jared Esh moving into second in turns 3 and 4.

AJ Flick moved into fourth on the following lap with Anthon Macri in tow. One lap later Wolfe would crack the top 5.

Esh worked the tail of Whittal, however he wasn;t able to make the pass. Whittall began to stretch his lead slightly until the caution came out on lap 8 for Daryl Stimeling as he spun around in turn 1.

As the field went back to green, Whittall again jumped out to a lead with Flick sliding Esh for second and Wolfe passing Macri for fourth on lap 8.

Three laps later, Michael Bauer blew a right rear tire exiting turn four to once again bunch up the field. Meanwhile, Logan Wagner, winner of three straight features at 'The Speed Palace', had cracked the top 10 from his 19th starting spot.

On the restart Whittall again sped off, this time with Flick in heavy pursuit. Wolfe used the high line in turns 1 and 2 to get by Macri for third. Over the next 2 laps, Flick and Whittall would swap the lead multiple times with Flick leading lap 12 before Whittall took it back one lap later.

As Whittall was focused on Flick, Wolfe was sizing up the leaders to make his move. With Whittall guarding from a slide job attempt, Wolfe hit the high side to gain momentum out of turn 2 and flew under Flick for second entering turn 3 on lap 15.

On the following circuit, Wolfe this time used the bottom in turns 1 and 2 to get under Whittall and continued into turn 3 and 4 to take the lead for good

"AJ and Justin were racing pretty hard and I didn't want to let them get strung out, so I made the move while they were racing and we were able to sneak by there," said Wolfe. "It's difficult to pass a good car in an open track, so while they were racing I thought it was my best opportunity."

Wolfe began to stretch his lead over the next 6 lap and he hit the tail end of the field with 3 to go. With Logan Wagner moving into 5th and coming fast and Whittall hungry for his first win, Wolfe was hoping for a caution free finish.

Coming around for the checkered flag, Esh blew a tire in turn 2 brungnout out the caution lights with 1 to go. However, after checking things out, Speedway officials deemed Wolfe took the checkered flag prior to the wreck, giving him a $4300 payday over Whittall, Blane Heimbach, Flick and Wagner.

"I obviously didn’t want a restart. It was awful close coming to the finish," said Wolfe about the incident. "I saw them waving the yellow, but then they came back and said the checker was out so it was good to be me."

"You just never know what the right place is to be on the track in terms of restarts, so I was happy it was over and we can be sitting in victory lane."

For Whittall, a rookie in the 410 Sprint Car ranks, he was happy to have the experience battling for the victory and gaining momentum for his young team.

"After the last couple of weeks it’s just really a good feeling to be competitive and be racing for wins," said Whittall. "Hopefully we can learn from this and keep it going and hopefully next time we'll be sitting up there where Lucas is tonight."

TJ Stutts, Macri, Ryan Taylor, Mike Wagner and Dylan Cisney completed the top 10.

Abbottstown, PA (June 15, 2019) – Danny Dietrich has seen success in Central PA and pretty much wherever he travels in 2019 leading Central PA drivers with eight wins on the season going into Saturday night. The results were no different when Dietrich stopped by the Pigeon Hills to race on Saturday.

Pole-sitter, Joe Kata, lead the field to the green with Kyle Moody on the outside of row 1. Just as Kata slid up the track to hold off Moody out of turn 2, Trey Hivner landed upside down in turns 1 and 2 bringing out the red.

The field was lined up for a complete restart. This time Moody got out to the lead with Kata falling into second. The yellow came out on lap 1 for Jay Galloway after he spun out in turns 2. Galloway rejoined the field.

This time Moody led the field for a single file restart with Kata, Cole Young, Glenndon Forsythe and Bradley Howard lined up behind him.

Moody held onto the lead running the top of the track as Brian Montieth and Cory Haas battled for fifth with Montieth taking the spot.

It only took Moody five laps to catch the tail-end of the field. Just as Moody started to work his way through lapped traffic the caution came out on lap 6 for Cory Haas when he got spun around in turn 2.

Moody held the lead on the restart. A few laps after the restart Dietrich was working on Montieth for his fifth spot. It was a great battle with Dietrich taking over the spot-on lap 10. Moody started to work on his way through lapped traffic again on lap 10 while Young was working on Kata for second. Young took the spot on 12. Dietrich got around Forsythe for fourth on the same lap.

As Moody drove through lapped traffic Young closed in on the leader. Dietrich made his way to third on lap 18 to make it a three-way battle for the lead. With Young on the bottom of turns 3 and 4 Dietrich went high to take second on lap 19.

TROY WAGAMAN WINS 3rd RACE OF THE YEAR IN MAKE UP FEATURE FROM MAY 25

After a hot start to the season with wins in March and April, Wagaman was due for another win. With a 10th starting spot in the make-up feature from May 25, Wagaman would have to work through the field for his third win of the season.

CJ Tracy started on the pole of the 20-lap feature with Zach Euculano on his outside. Tracy took the lead as the green flag dropped. Steve Owings stopped on the front stretch before completing one lap setting up the field for a complete restart.

The yellow came out again before a lap was in the books for Kyle Denmyer and Dylan Orwig. Both drivers stopped in turn 4.

Third time’s the charm. Tracy took the lead on the field’s third attempt at a start with Euculano falling into second and Travis Scott running third.

The field saw the caution again on lap 1 when Tyler Ross and Wyatt Hinkle got together in turn 4. Ross came to a stop bringing out the caution flag.

Tracy held onto the lead again, this time on a single file restart. Wagaman quickly made his way up through the field and was running fourth on lap 6 as Tracy started to work through lapped traffic.

Lap 9 saw the fourth caution of the race. This time it was for the race leader, Tracy, who spun out in turn 2.

Euculano inherited the lead with Scott, Wagaman and Doug Hammaker lined up behind him for the restart.

Wagaman got under Scott driving down the backstretch on lap 13 to take the second spot. The red flag came out on lap 14 for Tyler Ross. Ross got upside down in turn 4.

The yellow came out again on the restart as Wagaman was making a run on Euculano for the lead. Dave Carlberg stopped on the backstretch.

With six laps to go the field lined up for another restart. The caution came out before another lap was completed. Scott got into the wall in turn 1 and nearly flipped while running third.

With both Wagaman and Hammaker challenging Euculano for the lead the seventh and final caution of the race came on lap 17 when Brett Strickler got spun around in turn 2. Strickler rejoined the field.

Wagaman tried the outside on the restart and couldn’t make the pass in turns 1 and 2. Wagaman went to the outside again in turns 3 and 4 and beat Euculano to the flag stand by a nose to take the lead. Both Hammaker and Dylan Norris followed getting around Euculano for second and third.

Wagaman held onto the lead and beat Hammaker to the line by .958 seconds for his third win of the season. Norris held onto third with Euculano finishing fourth. Cody Fletcher completed the top five.

STEVE OWINGS EARNS FIRST CAREER LINCOLN WIN

Steve Owings didn’t complete a lap in the make-up feature held earlier in the night. With pole starting spot for the regularly scheduled feature Owings had the opportunity to turn his night around.

Owings led the field to the cone for the single file restart with Hinkle, Rohrbaugh, Norris and Hammaker lined up behind him.

Hinkle, Rohrbaugh and Hammaker were in a three-way battle for second when the caution came out on lap 10 for Dylan Orwig when he spun out in turn 4. Hinkle had held onto the second spot but pulled into the pits during the caution. Rohrbaugh inherited the runner up spot for the restart.

Owings had a solid restart and created some distance between Rohrbaugh. Kevin Nouse got under Jeff Halligan for fourth, but Halligan stayed close trying to get his spot back.

The caution came out on lap 15 when Hammaker and Rohrbaugh made contact on the front stretch with Rohrbaugh coming to a stop.

A three-way battle for the lead ensued on the restart between Owings, Hammaker and Nouse.

The caution came out again on lap 18 for Orwig in turn 4.

Owings led the field to the cone for a two-lap shoot-out with Hammaker, Nouse, Halligan and Norris lined up behind him.

Hammaker made one last effort for the lead but Owings held him off and beat him to the checkered by .468 seconds. Nouse held onto third. Halligan crossed the line fourth and Norris finished fifth.

Heat winners were Kevin Nouse, Steve Owings and Jeff Rohrbaugh.

MARK RICKRODE & JOHN MARKS EACH WITH PENNMAR CLASS VICTORIES

Mark Rickrode started on the pole of the 20-lape feature. After an impressive run in the heat race, Gene Wrightstone started on the outside of the front row. Both drivers on the front row were running in the Modified Class.

John Marks lined up seventh for the feature start and was the highest starting driver in the Sportsman Class.

Rickrode, driving the number 29 Kenn Weld tribute car, got out to the lead as the green flag dropped with Wrightstone right there to take the lead out of turn 2. Rickrode beat him back to the line to lead lap 1. Rickrode and Wrightstone were running wheel to wheel with Randy Minich watching the close battle in third.

Rickrode started to pull away on lap 2. Mark Hahn started to work on Minich for third as Rickrode caught the tail-end of the field on lap 9.

Hahn went to the bottom of the track to try and take third from Minich and the two drivers drag raced to the flag stand on lap 10. Hahn took the spot the following lap but Minich stayed close. Minich took the spot back on lap 14. The two continued to battle for the spot with Hahn getting the spot back again on lap 16.

Rickrode held onto the lead to win the overall feature and the Modified Class. Wrightstone crossed the line second. Hahn held onto third with Minich finishing fourth. John Marks won the Sportsman Class with his fifth-place finish.

Rahmer Gets Back-To-Back Williams Grove Sprint Wins,

Bacon Wins USAC Silver Crown After Windom Wipes Out Buckwalter On Final Lap

6/14/19

Mechanicsburg – Freddie Rahmer of Salfordville made it back to back wins in 410 sprint competition at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, taking $4,080 for his third oval win of the season.

Rahmer had to recover from a wheelie on a lap 10 restart that cost him two spots in order to get the 25-lap victory.

Oklahoma’s Brady Bacon took the 100-lap USAC Silver Crown main after what was a late-race bout of drama that saw one leader taken out of the event by his challenger from behind.

Enola’s Kody Lehman started on the pole of the 410 sprint car main and held sway over Rodney Westhafer when action began.

Fourth starter Anthony Macri moved into second on the fifth lap and began making his bid(s) for the win.

Macri was quickly followed by Rahmer on his way to the front.

Lehman was doing his best to keep control of the race with 10 laps completed despite Macri’s repeated attempts at snaring the lead when the first caution flag of the race unfurled.

Macri was continually working the outside on Lehman to get the lead and in fact, just moments before the yellow, he had taken the point in the race only to see the move negated by the yellow.

Rahmer seemed poised to pounce on the restart but instead lifted the front end high up off of the ground as the car crossed the stripe and instead of moving forward, he fell backward two spots as he tried to muscle the car back under his control while slipping from side to side.

Meanwhile, Macri was again working Lehman for control as Lucas Wolfe worked from the third spot after getting by Rahmer during his wheel-stand.

A second caution flag appeared with five laps to go and again Macri saw a move for the lead called back after this time having gotten around Lehman in the first and second turns while Wolfe slipped by on the bottom.

Macri then slowed to a stop on the track while under caution.

Rahmer drove through the middle of the track on the restart in the first and second turns to motor by Wolfe and then quickly used the same lane in turns three and four to move from third to the lead in one lap before driving off for the victory.

Lehman then fought to hold on to second, which he lost to Wolfe with three laps to go.

Lehman would finish a career-best third followed by Brian Montieth and Danny Dietrich.

Heats went to Lehman, Westhafer and Kyle Moody with Ryan Smith taking the consolation race.

Rahmer talked about his wheelie, “I wheelied like terrible. That was ugly,” he said.

“I didn’t have any drive in it ‘til about five laps after that.”

The 100-lap USAC Silver Crown main saw seven caution flags slow the race pace with Illinois driver Chris Windom taking the early lead from the outside of the front row.

Windom was chased by polesitter Justin Grant of California for the first 37 laps before Pennsylvania USAC’er Steve Buckwalter of Royersford motored into second after running a slow and steady pace to the front from the eighth starting spot.

Buckwalter followed Windom until a lap 47 restart when he was able to bolt underneath for control.

Buckwalter was able to pull away from Windom during the ensuing laps as USAC point leader Kody Swanson came to second on lap 82 with the leader over two seconds ahead.

After a restart with 11 laps to go, Swanson made a bid for the win only to come up short while also jumbling the field in the second turn that saw Brady Bacon zip through the cluster for the second spot while Windom got by Swanson for third.

Windom then jumped past Bacon to reassume second and apply pressure to the leader but Buckwalter had the race in hand with four laps to go.

However Windom proved rather ungraceful in his bid to steal the win with under a lap to go as he attempted to drive through the leader in the first turn.

The result saw Buckwalter spin out, forcing a green-white-checker run to the finish in which Windom ended up popping a tire just after taking the white flag.

This allowed Bacon to blast by and take his first-ever career USAC Silver Crown victory, worth $8,000.

It would have also been Buckwalter’s first career USAC Silver Crown win.

Kody Swanson ended up second, .612 seconds behind while third went to Justin Grant.

Mike Haggenbottom was fourth followed by Eric Gordon.

Grant set fast time over the field with a lap of 21.799 seconds.

THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES

NAPA AUTO PARTS THUNDER ON THE HILL OPENS 30TH ANNIVERSARY SEASON IN A BIG WAY. . . . .

BRADY BACON STORMS AWAY WITH $10,000 JESSE HOCKETT CLASSIC USAC WIN; RYAN WATT CLAIMS NASCAR 358 MODIFIEDS

BECHTELSVILLE, PA (June 11, 2019) – Broken Arrow, Oklahoma’s Brady Bacon picked up his third consecutive win and the $10,000 winner’s share as part of the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series Jesse Hockett Classic on Tuesday Night at Grandview Speedway. This event marked the one-hundred and thirty-third Thunder on the Hill event since the series started in 1990.

Bacon was the winner of the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car portion of the Thunder season kick-off while Boyertown, Pennsylvania’s Ryan Watt picked up the victory in the NASCAR 358 Modifieds – his second career Thunder on the Hill Racing Series win.

A drag race down the front stretch started the 40-lap USAC main event with front row starters Justin Grant and Brady Bacon. Bacon gained the advantage and quickly pulled away from the twenty-two car field.

Behind the leader, Grant and Tyler Courtney swapped the second-place spot multiple times before the red flag flew on lap 9 for local favorite Tim Buckwalter, who clipped the outside retaining wall -- violently flipping down the frontstretch of the speedway. Buckwalter, a Douglassville, PA native, walked away uninjured.

On the restart, Bacon continued his quest for the win, maintaining the lead over Justin Grant and CJ Leary.

The best-of-the-best in USAC competition battled it out for the second spot. Five cars challenged Grant including Leary, Kevin Thomas Jr. and Tyler Courtney.

All eyes were on Chris Windom, powering from his ninth-place starting position into the top five. Forging a battle with Grant, Windom moved into the third spot at the halfway point – the two stole the show, swapping sliders for multiple laps and exchanging the second position numerous times.

It was all Bacon for the remainder of the event, claiming the victory and the prize money. CJ Leary would grab the second position with three laps remaining and Chris Windom would settle for third.

Tyler Courtney came home in the fourth position followed by Kevin Thomas Jr.

USAC Heat Races were won by Tim Buckwalter, Carson Short, and Chad Boespflug while Jason McDougal won the B-Main with a new 12-lap track record.

Ringoes, NJ’s Ryan Godown led the NASCAR 358 Modified field to the drop of the green flag with Watt quickly moving into the second spot. Godown set the pace, but Watt closed quickly, stalking the leader and waiting patiently to make a move for the top spot.

The only yellow of the event flew on lap 10, as the leader, Ryan Godown slowed entering turn 3 handing the lead over to Watt.

On the restart, Craig Von Dohren charged inside the leader, with Duane Howard close on his tail – but neither could complete the pass on Watt. Howard moved passed VonDohren a few laps later, setting his sights on the leader.

The leaders approached lapped traffic on the 20th circuit closing the gap and allowing Howard to challenge for the win. Howard’s No. 357 machine moved inside Watt’s, showing the nose but unable to complete the pass.

The pair raced down the backstretch side-by-side as the checkered flag approached. The battle for the lead shaped up, but Watt gained an advantage while Howard struggled with a noticeable right rear flat tire. Watt would roll on for the victory, Howard held on for the second position, Craig VonDohren finished in third, Jared Umbenhauer in fourth, and Brett Kressley rounding out the top five finishers.

Modified heat races were won by Brett Kressley, Kevin Hirthler and Brian Hirthler with TJ Lily winning the Modified Consolation.

The NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series returns on Tuesday, July 2 for Pennsylvania Sprint Car Speedweek with $10,000 to win for the 410 Sprint Cars – also on the card, the NASCAR 358 Modifieds. NASCAR competitor Kyle Larson has picked up the victory in the past two Grandview Speedway Speedweek events.

The USAC National Midget Championship comes to Grandview Speedway on Tuesday, July 30 alongside the NASCAR 358 Modifieds for the Ken Brenn Midget Masters event.

USAC Wingless Sprint Cars to Invade Port Royal Speedway as Part of Annual Eastern Storm Swing

By- Justin Snyder

PORT ROYAL, Pa- There is a storm coming! And not the rain that Central Pennsylvania race fans have grown so accustomed to this season.

As part of the yearly Eastern Storm tour, the USAC wingless stars will invade Port Royal Speedway for an open wheel’s fans dream Saturday June 15 as they join the Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Car for an exciting night of racing presented by SPRINTCARUNLIMITED.COM.

It will also be Eastern Museum of Motor Racing night and there will be Father’s Bus Rides in celebration of Father’s Day at the track.

Adult General Admission will be 25$ with Students (12-18 years of age) $10 and Pit Admission being $35.

The ‘Speed Palace’ has hosted the USAC wingless series since 2012 with past winners being Damion Gardner (2012), Dave Darland (2013), Brady Bacon (2014), Robert Ballou (2015), Bryan Clauson (2016) and Chris Windom (2017-2018).

Windom will be looking to make it 3 in a row at the Juniata County oval, but he’ll have to fend off the best that the series has to offer. The USAC feature will pay $6,000 to win.

CJ Leary comes into the PA swing as the current USAC AMSOIL National Sprint series points leader over Kevin Thomas Jr, Windom, Tyler Courtney and Chase Stockon.

Speaking of 3 in a row, Logan Wagner will be looking to add to his 3 straight Weikert’s Livestock 410 feature victories dating back to the Weikert Memorial finale 2 weeks ago. Last week, the defending points leader claimed $7,000 as he swept the night’s events and picked up both Twin 20 features.

Wagner currently leads Dylan Cisney by 190 points in search of his second track championship. Blane Heimbach, Mike Wagner and Ryan Taylor make up the rest of the top five and they’ll all be vying for the $4,000 winners share Saturday night and hoping to cut into his points lead as well.

Finally, Port Royal will continue with the Junior Fan of the Week promotion! Each week there will be a contest where a young fan ranging from 5-12 years old will be named the Junior Fan of the Week.

The fan will get to ride in the Pace Truck, receive a hat from Mel the Pace Truck Driver during opening ceremonies, throw the green flag for a heat race, receive a free hot dog and drink courtesy of Packer’s Concessions and a reserved parking spot for the night. A photo will also be taken during the night to commemorate the event.

Please sign up for a chance to be named the winner with Miss Port Royal Speedway from 4-6pm on race nights at the pavilion. Children may only win once per season and a winner for the following week will be drawn following the conclusion of the sprint car feature.

 

 

THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES

WHERE IS BRADY BACON WITH THREE LAPS TO GO?

AMSOIL USAC EASTERN STORM TO BE PART OF NAPA AUTO PARTS THUNDER ON THE HILL SERIES OPENER AT GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY TUESDAY NIGHT, JUNE 11

BECHTELSVILLE, PA JUNE 9, 2019 . . . . . . . Where oh where will Brady Bacon be with three laps to go?

At the previous two AMSOIL USAC Sprint Eastern Storm events at the Grandview Speedway, Broken Arrow, OK driver Brady Bacon was in the right place at the right time. Bacon, the defending winner of the last two Jesse Hockett Classic events took the lead with just three laps to go in both 40 lap feature events. This Tuesday night, Brady Bacon will attempt the “hat trick” of three wins in a row on the “hill”. This year the Jesse Hockett Classic will pay $10,000 to win so Bacon just may be racing a little harder to get that lead position a little earlier in chase of the biggest payoff of the 13th Annual Eastern Storm.

The AMSOIL USAC sprints will bring a field of talent to the “hill” in chase of the $10,000 to win 40 lap Jesse Hockett Classic. Also on the card will be the NASCAR Modifieds chasing a $3,000 payday for the win in their 30 lap feature. The USAC Sprints will open the show with time trials and a series of qualifying events followed by the Modifieds that will take part in qualifying heats and a consolation. Gates open at 5 PM with qualifying getting underway at 7:30 PM.

LOGAN WAGNER EARNS $7,000 FOR SWEEP OF TWIN 20 SPRINT CAR FEATURES

Devin Adams holds off Jonathan Jones for 305 sprint car win and Pete Leister wins xtreme stocks

PORT ROYAL, PA – Logan Wagner is in complete control of the Weikert’s Livestock sprint cars at Port Royal Speedway.

The defending track champion and current point leader made a huge statement Saturday night by winning both 20-lap sprint car features.

He dominated the first feature earning $3,000 for his third win of the season in the John and Pee Wee Zemaitis Zemco sprinter. In the second feature, he passed Lance Dewease for the win.

Wagner, of Harrisonville, earned another $3,000 for that win, plus a $1,000 bonus for the sweep. Murray Motors Chevrolet of Selinsgrove and Folkens Bros. Trucking of Iowa each put up $500 toward the bonus.

“I can’t believe it,” Wagner said. “To win one of them two years ago would have been unheard of for me. These guys have been doing this for a long time and they know what they’re doing. I’m just the loose nut behind the wheel.”

In the first feature, Wagner started second and grabbed the race lead. Kyle Reinhardt and Ryan Smith swapped second with Reinhardt securing the spot.

Wagner reached lapped traffic with six laps completed, but it didn’t slow him down. Behind the top three, it was a battle between Danny Dietrich and Lance Dewease.

The first yellow of the race flew with 11 laps completed when Trenton Sheaffer stopped on the front stretch. This got Wagner out of the heavy lapped traffic, but also erased his comfortable 2.469-second lead.

Wagner streaked away from the field on the restart as the top cars all blasted around the cushion. He built another big lead and was headed for the white flag when Justin Whittall stopped bringing out the yellow again.

He raced right thru the center of the corners on the restart. Reinhardt stayed closer this time, but Wagner took the bottom line away from him on the final lap. Wagner’s third Port Royal win of the season came by 1.297 over Reinhardt. Smith, Dewease and 15th starter Dylan Cisney completed the top five.

“We capitalized on starting position,” Wagner said. “We have a really fast hot rod. I can’t thank the Zemco Team enough. I did a lot of saving on the right rear for the second feature. I’m not sure what the other guys’ tires look like, but we should be okay. I’m sure if we have car similar to that we should be alright.”

Danny Dietrich, Mike Wagner, Antony Macri, Blane Heimbach and TJ Stutts rounded out the top 10.

Wagner drew the lowest number possible for the second feature inversion. He picked a four putting Dewease and Smith on the front row.

Dewease grabbed the lead over Smith and Wagner to start the second 20-lappper. Meanwhile, Reinhardt, Dietrich and Cisney battled for the fourth spot.

Smith stayed close to Dewease with Wagner third. The battle continued behind them with Dietrich securing the spot.

Dewease worked the middle while Smith and Wagner worked the top. Smith was right on Dewease as they completed lap nine. Dewease was having trouble lapping cars. Smith drove next to Dewease as they raced down the backstretch, but Wagner went way up top entering turn three making the race for the lead three-wide in the corners.

Wagner drove by Smith and then Dewease in turns one and two taking the lead with 11 laps completed. Dietrich was lurking right behind them.

“Ryan had no idea I was there,” Wagner said. “I knew where Lance was running and he wasn’t going to leave it. When Ryan seen Lance, he started to pick it up and spin his wheels. I got a good run off of two and when the gap opened up, I had to pull the trigger then. I skated up. I was probably close to him, but I had to do what I had to do. Two laps later, I got a good run in the middle and got by Lance, too.”

He gave plenty of credit to crew chief Tommy Carl and crew.

“Hats off to the crew,” he said. “For a car to operate like and get by Lance Dewease on his race track, slick, 20-second laps, that speaks volumes on what my guys are doing. We had a good right rear tire going into it and I felt like we could go anywhere. I tried a couple different grooves before I caught them to see what my car was doing.”

Wagner pulled ahead off turn two while Dewease and Dietrich got by Smith. Dietrich took second from Dewease with three to go.

But it was all Wagner winning by 1.569 over Dietrich, Dewease, Cisney and Smith. Macri, Reinhardt, Mike Wagner, Heimbach and Stutts rounded out the top 10.

He got up on the wing with broom in hand following the second win.

“It took me too long to get going,” Dietrich said. “I needed 25 laps.”

“We’re pretty happy with the first feature,” Reinhardt said. “Honestly, we were pretty bad all day until the first feature. We hung on and made it into the redraw. Logan got us at the start. We had a good run. We caught up to him a little bit before that yellow and then he had clear track and that was it. The second feature, we tried a lot of different stuff and it didn’t work. It wasn’t a total loss. We’re still rolling okay.”

Wagner set fast time over the 32-car field with a lap of 16.346. Steve Buckwalter, Dietrich, AJ Flick and Mike Wagner won the heat races. Jared Esh won the B-main.

In the 20-lap main event for the Penns Valley Meat Market 305 sprints, Jonathan Jones grabbed the early race lead, but Devin Adams, of Jonestown, passed him on the frontstretch taking over the top spot with a few laps completed.

Jones stayed with him and worked the inside line as Adams stayed on the cushion. They reached lapped traffic with 11 laps to go.

This bunched up the top five as ninth starter Zach Newlin moved into the top five. The leaders were in heavy lapped traffic as Jones continued to challenge Adams for the lead.

He was under him again on the final lap in turns one and two. Jones final bid for the win ended in a fourth turn 360 spin. Jones had finished second in the first three races of the season. Adams, a recent high school graduate, beat Christian Rumsey to the line by .912 in the non-stop feature. Newlin, Dave Grube and Jones completed the top five. Ken Duke Jr., Cale Reigle, Kassidy Kreitz, Drew Ritchey and Doug Dodson rounded out the top 10.

Scott Ellerman, Rumsey, Jones and Newlin won the heat races. Kyle Ganoe won the consolation.

Pete Leister won the 15-lap feature for the Juniata Junction xtreme stocks. Brad Mitch, Dustin Hoffman, Andrew Shoop and Dustin Snook completed the top five.

Abbottstown, PA (June 8, 2019) – They say the first win is always the hardest. Coming off his rookie of the year campaign, Brett Michalski won his first feature in the 410 division on Saturday night at Lincoln Speedway. After Michalski found success in the 360 division, he made the jump to 410 sprints full time in 2018.

Michalski started on the pole of the 25-lap feature with Kyle Moody on the outside of the front row. Moody was back at Lincoln after missing two weeks of racing.

Michalski got a good start at the line with Tim Wagaman getting by both Cole Young and Trey Hivner for third. Wagaman tried to get under Moody for second but couldn’t make it stick. Freddie Rahmer also had a solid start getting around three cars to advance to fourth on the first lap.

As Michalski and Moody both ran the top line around the track Moody started to reel Michalski in. The leaders hit lapped traffic on lap 6. Moody was forced to the bottom to get by lapped traffic which allowed Michalski to pull away.

The yellow flag came out on lap 15 for Trey Hivner who came to a stop in the top of turn 4.

Michalski led Moody, Wagaman, Rahmer and Jim Siegel to the cone for the single file restart.

Rahmer got under Wagaman for third as Michalski held onto the lead. As Michalski and Moody ran the top again, Rahmer was trying the bottom in turns 1 and 2. Rahmer reeled Moody in and slid up in front of him in turns 3 and 4 on lap 21 for second.

After taking second, Rahmer went to work on Michalski for the lead. The leaders were catching the tail end of the field as the white flag flew. Rahmer had one more shot for the win and took the chance with a slide job in 3 and 4 on the last lap but Michalski came back and beat him to the checkered flag by .263 seconds.

Moody held onto third. Siegel finished fourth and Wagaman completed the top five.

Heat winners were Brett Michalski, Kyle Moody and Trey Hivner.

JEFF HALLIGAN’S 358 MACHINE WINS URC 358/360 CHALLENGE

Last year Jeff Halligan became the first driver to win the 358/360 Challenge with a 358 car. This year he made it two wins in a row as the URC Sprints invaded Lincoln Speedway on Saturday night.

Chad Layton started on the pole of the 25-lap feature with Halligan lined up fourth behind Ryan Stillwagon and Josh Weller.

Layton went to the top of the track on the start and held onto the lead. Weller got by Stillwagon for second before the red flag came out on lap 1 for Connor Leffler and Jonathan Stewart in turns 3 and 4.

Following URC rules, the field lined up for a double-file restart with Layton opting to start on the bottom. Layton held off Weller on the restart with Dylan Norris getting up to third.

The red flag came out again on lap 5 for Wyatt Hinkle who ended up on his side in turn 4.

Layton chose the bottom again for the restart. Once again Layton held on Weller as the green flag dropped. Halligan and Norris were battling for third behind the leaders with Curt Michael making his way through the field into the top five.

Halligan got by Norris for third on lap 6 and went to work on chasing down Weller for second. Michael was chasing down Norris for third.

Weller got under Layton in turns 1 and 2 to try and take the lead on lap 12. The red flag came out just as the race for the lead was heating up. The red came out for Austin Bishop in turns 3 and 4.

Once again Layton chose the bottom for the restart. Halligan got by Weller for second with Michael moving up to fourth.

Michael got by Weller for third on the backstretch on lap 13.

Halligan was all over Layton challenging him for the lead with 10 laps to go. Halligan was running the top and raced Layton wheel to wheel on lap 17. Layton held onto the lead, so Halligan tried the bottom still running wheel to wheel with Layton. Layton got a solid run coming out of turn 4 which allowed him to pull away from Halligan.

Halligan reeled Layton in again and got under him coming out of turn 2 on lap 20 for the lead.

Halligan beat Layton to the checkered flag by 1.203 seconds. Michael held onto third. Weller finished fourth and Dylan Norris, another 358 driver, rounded out the top five.

Heat winners were Curt Michael, Chad Layton, Freddie Rahmer and Connor Leffler. Adam Carbury won the B-main.

Both Freddie Rahmer and Scott Fisher pulled double-duty running in both divisions.

Rahmer & Eckert Win Second Of Season At Williams Grove Friday

6/7/19

Mechanicsburg – Freddie Rahmer scored his second win of the season Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway, earning $4,080 for the sprint car win that was the eighth of his career at the speedway.

In the Tri-Track Late Model Challenge Series for super lates, York’s Rick Eckert scored his second oval win of the season as well, making a clean sweep of his events by setting fast time, winning his heat and then the main event.

Chad Trout started second in the 25-lap 410 sprint car main and took the lead over polesitter Rodney Westhafer when action began as Rahmer came to second from fourth on the opening lap.

Rahmer raced in Trout’s shadow for the first six laps before finally getting the lead.

Prior to taking control, he raced to Trout’s outside repeatedly in the third and first turns only to be forced to fall back in line just behind the leader.

But he was finally able to get far enough around Trout to complete the pass in the first and second turns on the seventh tour.

“I just moved up a half lane and had a little better exit,” Rahmer said of how he got the lead.

“That’s what I thought I had to do to win.”

“Once you get by yourself you can really focus on hitting your marks and managing your wheel spin,” he said of getting out front and setting the pace.

Rahmer hit the rear of the field with nine away but then saw his pace slowed, and his 1.7 second lead erased on the 12th lap when the only caution flag of the race unfurled for a stopped Troy Fraker.

Rahmer jetted away on the restart as Danny Dietrich raced with Trout for second.

With five laps to go Rahmer had a 3.8 second lead that dropped off a bit, to 3.578 seconds at the finish.

Dietrich finally got by Trout on the 24th circuit.

Trout finished third followed by Kyle Reinhardt and Westhafer.

Sixth through 10th went to Lucas Wolfe, Cory Haas, TJ Stutts, Brian Montieth and Steve Buckwalter.

Heats went to Westhafer and Trout.

Eckert started on the pole and led every lap of the 30-lap special for super late models to earn $3,000 for the win that was the eighth of his career at Williams Grove.

His pace was slowed by four caution periods but each time with Dan Stone and Coleby Frye lining up just behind, Eckert was up to the challenge and pulled away from the field.

Stone and Frye exchanged second spot more than once before Stone finally kept the spot to the finish.

Eckert’s margin of victory was 5.396 seconds.

Frye was third followed by Jerry Bard and Jim Bernheisel.

Sixth through 10th went to Matt Cosner, Tyler Horst, Andy Haus, Jason Covert and Darryl Hills.

Twin heats went to Eckert and Lathroum.

Haus earned the hard charger award after starting 16th in the field.

Eckert’s fast time was 19.595 seconds.

Double the Fun- Weikert Livestock 410’s Return With Twin 20 Features

By- Justin Snyder

PORT ROYAL, PA- Port Royal Speedway returns June 8, 2019 with a three-division show featuring the Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Cars, the Penns Valley Meat Market PASS IMCA 305 Sprint Cars and the Juniata Junction Xtreme Stocks.

Following a week off for the 410 Sprint Cars, the drivers will return with double the racing action as they will be running two ‘Twin 20’s feature events following a full format. Drivers will take part in straight up time trials against the entire field and the Fast Time driver will draw either a 2, 3 or 4 for the inversion of heat races.

The top 3 finishers from each heat race will re-draw for the A-Main. The driver who wins the first feature event will draw either a 4,6,8 or 10 inversion for the 2nd feature. Both feature events will pay $3000 to win and $300 to start. Only the first feature will be a points paying event and drivers will use the same Right Rear Tire for both features.

The current Weikerts Livestock points leader, Logan Wagner, will be looking to make it back to back as he picked up the feature win 2 weeks ago during the Weikert Memorial finale on Sunday night.

The 305 Sprint Cars will be making their 4th appearance of the 2019 season. Current points leader Ken Duke, a 2-time winner at the speedway in 2019, will be looking to extend his points lead as he hold a 5 point advantage over Jonathan Jones and a 100 point lead over Nick Sweigart.

Finally the Xtreme Stocks will be making their second appearance of the 2019 season. Brad Mitch picked up the win over Pete Leister in the series initial visit to the speedway and he holds a 15 point advantage in the point standing heading into the event.

Saturday, June 22 (7:30pm) Fallen Firefighters Night in Memory of Brandon Little + Kids Night | 410 Sprints ($5,000 to win!) + 358 Sprints

Abbottstown, PA (June 1, 2019) – Anthony Macri has looked fast since the beginning of the 2019 season but had yet to turn his speed into a win. That all changed on Saturday night when Macri landed in victory lane at Lincoln Speedway.

T.J. Stutts started on the pole with Cole Young on the outside of row 1. Stutts took the lead when the green flag dropped. Landon Myers got under Young in 3 and 4 for second to beat him to the flag stand.

The red flag came out on lap 1 after Young made contact with Myers bumper in turn 3. After contact was made Young collected Tim Glatfelter who landed upside down. Freddie Rahmer was also caught up in the wreck.

Stutts led the field to the cone for a single file restart with Myers, Chase Dietz, Anthony Macri and Adam Wilt in line behind him.

With Stutts going to the top of the track on the restart, Myers tried the bottom but to no avail and Stutts maintained the lead.

Macri got around the outside of Myers to take second on lap 3. Dietz followed suit on lap 7 and took over the third spot from Myers.

Working through lapped traffic, Stutts got hung up behind a lapped car allowing Macri to close in. Macri got under Stutts in turns 3 and 4 and the two went wheel to wheel at the flag stand with Macri taking the lead by inches on lap 9.

Stutts got him right back in turns 1 and 2 to regain the lead. Macri stuck around running the bottom line while Stutts worked his way around the top of the track.

Once again Macri got under Stutts in turns 3 and 4, this time on lap 14, to take the lead. This time it was for good.

Dietz started to reel Stutts in for second running the top line after Stutts moved down to run the bottom of the track. Dietz took the spot on lap 21 coming out of turn 2.

Now it was Wilt’s turn to work on Stutts for position. Wilt took third on lap 23 after getting under Stutts in turns 1 and 2.

Dietz tried to chase Macri down for the lead, but there weren’t enough laps left to get around him.

Macri beat Dietz to the checkered flag by .377 seconds. Wilt crossed the line third. Alan Krimes finished fourth and T.J. Stutts held on to finish fifth.

Heat winners were Robbie Kendall, T.J. Stutts and Cole Young.

Cody Fletcher Earns His First Lincoln 358 Win

The first race on Saturday night’s program was the 358 Sprint make-up feature from May 4.

Four drivers scheduled to start the feature did not make the call. They were Tyler Walton (who has since moved to the 410 division) Steve Owings, Austin Treuchet and Jon Stewart.

Jeff Halligan had motor issues during warmups and ran Dylan Orwig’s 2D car for the make-up feature. Zach Allman also had issues during warmups and was going to run Steve Kisamore’s 77K machine.

Cody Fletcher lined up in the pole position with Mark VanVorst sharing the front row.

VanVorst lead the field through turns 1 and 2 at the start but Fletcher took the lead in turns 3 and 4 to officially lead lap 1.

Troy Wagaman got by VanVorst for second on lap 3 and Doug Hammaker wasn’t far behind, taking third from VanVorst on lap 4.

Wagaman started to work on reeling in Fletcher but couldn’t get close enough to make a move for the lead.

The yellow flag came out on lap 12 when Jeff Rohrbaugh came to a stop on the front stretch.

Fletcher led Wagaman, Hammaker, Dylan Norris and Matt Findley to the cone for the single file restart.

Fletcher had a great start and pulled away from the rest of the field at the cone. Wagaman was able to reel Fletcher in and the top two started to pull away from the field.

Wagaman made one last effort and nearly caught Fletcher coming to the checkered flag, but Fletcher held him off by .114 seconds to earn his first career win at Lincoln in the 358 division. Hammaker finished third. Norris crossed the line fourth and Findley completed the top five.

The regularly scheduled 358-sprint car feature was postponed and will be made up on Saturday, June 15.

This Saturday, June 8, Lincoln Speedway is back in action with the 410 Sprints, 358 /360 Sprint Car Challenge & Kids Big Wheel Races. Racing starts at 7:30PM with pit gates opening at 5:00PM and grandstand gates opening at 5:30PM.

THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES

LOCAL FAVORITE STEVEN DREVICKI TAKES ON THE EASTERN STORM, EYES $10,000 TO WIN JESSE HOCKETT OPENER AT GRANDVIEW TUESDAY NIGHT, JUNE 11

BECHTELSVILLE, PA JUNE 1, 2019 . . . . . Reading, PA driver Steven Drevicki has enjoyed much local success and now he moves into the national spotlight entering the 13th Annual USAC Eastern Storm, a marquis event of the USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship. Drevicki will be driving his own #19 Maxim chassis powered by a Rider Engine from Reading businessman Gene Franckowiak with technical assistance from Clauson Marshall Newman Racing. The 13th Annual USAC Eastern Storm will open on Tuesday night, June 11 with the $10,000 to win Jesse Hockett Classic at the Grandview Speedway, The 358 NASCAR Modifieds will be part of the opening event. The Eastern Storm will move to the Bridgeport Speedway on Wednesday night, June 12, BAP’s Motor Speedway on Thursday night, June 13, Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night, June 15 and the Series finale will close out at the Weedsport Speedway on Sunday night, June 16.

For Drevicki, teaming up with Franckowiak and Clauson Marshall Newman Racing is a big opportunity that could open doors in the future. Franckowiak has ties with USAC going way back to watching them race at the Reading Fairgrounds when he was a child. “I am a devout USAC supporter as a driver, car owner, sponsor and advocate watching some of the greatest Indy car drivers of our generation come through the USAC midgets, sprints and champ cars and it is an amazing honor to be part of the USAC family”, stated Gene.

So why USAC? Gene replied, “I support USAC because they run a professional organization with tremendous history in the sport. The races are well run, the staff and officials treat the racers with respect, the point fund and purses are good and their awards banquet is amazing. . . and most of all, the racing is great” !

At one time, Gene considered himself a low budget racer and there were a few folks who always helped him and today, Gene is in a different position. “I like to think I am paying it forward by helping others who are in the position I was once in”, said Gene.

What was your career highlight? “Winning my first USAC race was the single happiest moment in my sprint car career. And now, years later, being a partner with the Clauson Marshall USAC sprint car team and winning the 2018 Tony Hulman Classic as well as the 2018 National Championship was a kid’s dream come true”, stated Gene in a very sincere tone. The partnership did not end there, for the past two years, Gene has been deeply involved with Brady Bacon Racing which fields the Hoffman #69 “Mean Green” sprint car on the USAC Tour. Gene also enjoyed success winning the 2013 URC Championship (another historical organization) with Dave Ely as the driver. Franckowiak and Ely accomplishments include a win on the ASCS National tour, Central PA 410 wins, Patriot and ESS sprint victories throughout a thirteen year relationship which continues today.

Gene Franckowiak also played a big part in the start of the USAC Eastern Storm. It was Gene who brought together Bob Miller and USAC’s Greg Stabb that opened discussions and eventually the start of the USAC Eastern Storm back in 2007. The first Eastern Storm event, marked the return of USAC to Berks County since they last competed at the Reading Fairgrounds when Paul Pitzer took the victory in 1979. It was Levi Jones who won the first Eastern Storm at the Grandview Speedway on Tuesday night, June 6, 2007 and he came back to win again in 2010. Since that time, other USAC feature winners at Grandview/Thunder on the Hill includes Bryan Clauson (3), Brady Bacon (2),

Jesse Hockett (2), Bobby East (1) , Daron Clayton (1) , Chase Stockon (1),

So it all kicks off again on Tuesday night, June 11 at the Grandview Speedway and the opening event of the 2019 NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series. Gates open at 5 PM with race time set for 7:30 PM. The USAC Sprints will open with time trials followed by a series of qualifying events leading up to the 40 lap $10,000 to win Jesse Hockett Classic.

Dietrich Robs Cisney Of First Williams Grove Win In Final Turn, Nouse Gets 358s

5/31/19

Mechanicsburg – Dylan Cisney came within yards of winning the first Williams Grove Speedway 410 sprint car feature of his career on Friday night but finishing just yards ahead of him, or .066 seconds, was Danny Dietrich.

Dietrich pulled off a last turn, last lap swoop for the lead that robbed Cisney of the glory until another day although Cisney appeared ready for the limelight for the first 24 and three-quarter laps.

Elsewhere, Kevin Nouse scored the 358 sprint car main to notch his first oval win of the year and become the third division winner in as many races this season.

Cisney started on the pole for the 25-lap 410 sprint main and raced to stay ahead of second starter Brian Montieth from the very beginning and it was no easy task for Cisney to stay at the helm.

Already on the second lap Montieth got around Cisney only to see Cisney beat him back to the stripe.

And this scene played out repeatedly throughout the event, mostly in the second turn when Montieth would get under Cisney and take control, leaving Cisney to fight back, which he always seemed to be able to do.

On two occasions, Cisney even dropped off of the cushion and raced back to Montieth’s inside as the pair shot down the backchute in order to reclaim control but in most instances, Cisney was able to catapult back around the outside of his challenger.

The first caution flag of the event unfurled with nine laps to go when Anthony Macri stopped on the track and then red flag appeared on the restart when Rodney Westhafer spun in the first corner while Gerard McIntyre Jr. vaulted over the fence.

Cisney thwarted Montieth when action resumed and Dietrich made a huge move from sixth to third but again the red flag came out two laps later, this time for a crashed Chase Dietz on the frontchute.

This put Dietrich in play but the show was between Cisney and Montieth when action again restarted with Cisney again getting the better of the deal, racing with precision to stay ahead of his challenger despite moves by Montieth that saw him nose into the lead briefly.

But the complexion of the race changed with five laps to go when a final caution flag bunched the field.

Dietrich stuck to Montieth when green reappeared and pulled a third turn dive to steal second with three laps to go.

Dietrich’s dives into three would prove lethal for Cisney in the final turns as the Gettysburg driver was able to get just close enough to complete a pass on the cushion –running leader.

Cisney then turned the car to the inside of Dietrich as the pair raced to the checkers, drawing back up to Dietrich’s cockpit by the finish.

Dietrich picked up an extra $250 from WC Eshenaur and Sons Fuels for the last lap pass to go along with the posted $3,680 winner’s share.

It was his second win of the season at Williams Grove.

Cisney settled for second followed by Montieth, Steve Buckwalter and Adrian Shaffer.

Sixth through 10th went to Kyle Reinhardt, TJ Stutts, Jared Esh, Chad Trout and Kody Lehman.

Heats went to Cisney, Montieth and Shaffer.

Nouse took the lead from Tyler Brehm on a lap three restart to speed to the 21st limited sprint win of his career at Williams Grove in the 20-lap 358 sprint feature race.

Doug Hammaker raced into second from the fourth starting spot on the fourth lap.

Hammaker was able to run down Nouse during the final few laps but Nouse stayed safely ahead to the finish.

Hammaker was second followed by Troy Wagaman Jr., Brett Wanner and Jeff Halligan.

Heats went to Brehm and Nouse.

Logan Wagner Captures Sprint Car Weikert Memorial, Mason Zeigler and Rick Eckert Claim Late Model Portion

Danny Dietrich and Eckert Claim the Bull Trophies As Top Drivers for Both Nights

BY- Justin Snyder

PORT ROYAL, Pa- Logan Wagner felt like he let one get away from him. After leading 23 laps on night one of the Bob Weikert Memorial Saturday night, Wagner got passed by Danny Dietrich following a late restart and finished second.

He could've wallowed and blamed the broken left rear shock that made his car hard to handle and he could've made excuses about cautions and bad luck. However like the old saying says, 'When you get kicked off the bull, you get back on'

Wagner passed his father Mike Wagner on lap 14 and held off a hard charging Dietrich to claim the 10 thousand dollar payday and gain a little redemption in front off a packed grandstand during a late night that saw rain attempt to play foil.

"Everything worked on in our favor tonight," said Wagner, a Harrisonville native and current speedway point leader. "We positioned ourselves well and we run well and my whole crew gave me a car that was made to win."

Freddie Rahmer was fast time and high point man following the heat races and he drew a 10 invert, putting AJ Flick and Mike Wagner on the front row for the feature event.

Flick jumped out to the early lead, with the Logan Wagner making a quick move from his 5th starting position to third on the opening lap.

As Flick was setting a blistering pace on an extremely fast race track, the elder Wagner and his son settled in behind him. However, Lucas Wolfe was making early moves as he moved into the top 5 of lap 5.

One lap later, Flick approached the tail end of the field of turn 3 and a lap later Wolfe moved past Ryan Taylor for 4th as he attempted to make it 3-straight Weikert Memorial victories.

However, the rally would be short lived as a lap later, Wolfe came to a stop in turn 3 with a flat tire and brought the field to the caution flag. Wolfe would rejoin the field following repairs.

On the restart, Mike Wagner made his move. He pulled under Flick in turn 1 and made the pass stick coming out of turn 2. Logan Wagner would follow as well on lap 10, however Greg Plank came to a stop in turn 1 to bring out the second caution of the night and negating Logan's pass.

Following the restart, Logan Wagner once again made the pass of Flick for second and set his sights on his father. Ryan Taylor and Kyle Reinhardt followed suit. On lap 14 Flick's night would also come to an end following a shredded right rear tire that sent him into the backstretch guard rail.

Following a red flag for fuel, rain drops began to fall from the sky for the second time on the night. However, speedway officials deemed the track ok and cars once again pushed off for the restart.

One lap later, Logan made his move on his father, sliding through the bottom in turn's 3 and 4 to claim the lead for good and lead lap 15.

"I knew we had the car to beat and under that red I told my guys I was just being patient and was waiting to make my move," said Wagner. "The car was so good that I just had to get up there and I knew once we got out front it be smooth sailing if I hit my marks and did my job."

Once out front, Wagner took off, building over a 3 second lead by lap 20. As Wagner was cruising around the top of the speedway, Dietrich was looking to make it a repeat of night 1.

After starting 9th in the field, Dietrich cracked the top 5 on lap 17 and passed Taylor for 4th on lap 18. Wagner hit lap traffic on lap 22, and one lap later Dietrich passed Reinhardt for 3rd. The following lap Dietrich passed the elder Wagner for second in turns 3 and 4 and he set his sights on Logan.

Dietrich attempted to catch the Zemco sprinter, but with Wagner sailing around the top of the speedway and taking it easy, he had nothing for them. Wagner would take the checkered flag by 1.208 seconds over Dietrich, who would claim the Steer Head trophy following a tie breaker with Wagner for being the best after 2-nights.

Lance Dewease, Reinhardt and Mike Wagner rounded out the top 5.

Not only did the win make up for a tough night 1 loss, but it was redemption following last year's Weikert Memorial that saw Wagner blow a tire while leading with 6-laps to go.

"I think that video recap of last years race has about 22 thousand views and after losing that one I think 20 thousand of them were me." said Wagner. "This is pretty easily the biggest win of my career and I couldn’t be happier than to be standing here in victory lane on Bob Weikert night in front of all these fans."

While second wasn't what he was looking for, Dietrich was just happy to be on the podium and be going home with the coveted bull trophy

" We got the bull and that's all we really wanted," said Dietrich. "We got a win last night and we been coming up here all year to bring trophy home and I can’t be any happier."

"Logan has been extremely fast here all year and he's tough to beat. So hats off to those guys and I'm happy for my guys to have a pretty successful weekend."

Jared Esh, Dylan Cisney, Taylor, Wolfe and Ryan Smith rounded out the top 10.

Feature Finish, 30 Laps: 1. Logan Wagner; 2. Danny Dietrich; 3. Lance Dewease; 4. Kyle Reinhardt; 5. Mike Wagner; 6. Jared Esh; 7. Dylan Cisney; 8. Ryan Taylor; 9. Lucas Wolfe; 10. Ryan Smith; 11.

LATE MODELS

It was bonus racing for the River Valley Builders Super Late Models as they had 2 feature events for $5,000. The first feature event was a make-up from night ones rain delayed event.

Mason Zeigler claimed his first career Super Late Model victory at the Speed Palace over Jason Covert and Rick Eckert.

Covert and Zeigler led the field to the green with the Covert jumping out the early lead. Five laps later, Eckert, using the top of the speedway in turns 3 and 4, cleared both Zeigler and Covert to take the lead by a nose at the flag stand

Covert would take the lead back a lap later and he an Eckert would drive side by side all around the track for the next 4 laps.

Meanwhile, Zeigler was licking his chops behind the two leaders, waiting for the time to make his move. On lap 11, Zeigler passed Covert for second on the backstretch and set his sights on Eckert.

On lap 16, Eckert had caught the tail-end of the field and Zeigler was all over him. As the 2 pulled through turns 3 and 4, Zeigler attempted to cross under Eckert for the lead and the two were dead even at the line with Eckert holding the slightest of leads.

Zeigler used the momentum to pull past Eckert in turns 1 and 2 and take the lead for good.

"I been coming here for a while and Rick has snookered me a time or 2 for a few victories," said Zeigler. "I been telling him that one of these days I was going to get him back and that was my chance."

With 7 laps remaining, there was a caution for a slowing Hayes Mattern just past the flag stand.

Eckert and Covert would jostle for position over the remaining 7 laps, but it was smooth sailing for Zeigler as he claimed the first feature of the night by a distance of 1.857 seconds.

Covert, Eckert, Gregg Satterlee and Dylan Yoder rounded out the top 5.

"The track is phenomenal. These guys do great things and give us a great surface," said Zeigler. "I'm just glad to get this first win and see if we can’t do it again tonight."

The second late model feature of the night was sweet redemption for Eckert as he parked it in victory lane for the $5,000 and claimed the coveted Steer Trophy for the Late Model portion of the Weikert Memorial for the second consecutive year.

Covert set fast time earlier in the night, while Eckert claimed top point honors following the completion of the heat races. He drew a 7 invert for the feature, putting Tyler Bare and Dylan Yoder on the front row.

As the green flag dropped, Yoder looked to take the early lead, but tracing action was halted due to a 6-car pile up in turn 1.

Yoder once again jumped out the lead form the outside row when the green flag dropped. As Yoder began to put distance between himself and the field, Eckert was beginning his march to the front.

By lap 2 he had moved into 4th place and Covert was following his lead as he slid into 5th a lap later.

Yoder was setting a quick pace and would ride the top of the speedway, hitting lap traffic on lap 16. That same lap, Eckert moved past Tim Smith Jr. for 3rd in turns 3 and 4.

It looked as if nobody was going to have anything for Yoder, however the caution came out on lap27 due to debris on the backstretch coming off the car of Michael Norris.

Following a return to green field action, Eckert would slide past Zeigler on the restart in turn 1 and 2 setting up an 8 lap dash to catch Yoder.

"We've been really fast all year, but just haven't really had a good car for the end of races, " said Eckert. "Luckily I got by Mason there on that restart and that allowed me ample time to catch Yoder and make a move."

With 5 laps to go, Eckert made the winning pass in turn's 3 and 4 and nobody had anything for the veteran driver. He would cross the finish line to the checkers by a 2.180 second margin over Yoder, Covert, Dan Stone and Norris.

"My car was decent but I knew I wasn't going to catch them without some help," said Eckert. "Luckily we got that late caution and I was able to string together a few good laps and it allowed us to be sitting here in victory lane."

For Yoder, it was yet another bridesmaid finish of second on the season and allowed him to stretch his current River Valley Builders series point lead.

"Man I wish Eckert would just stick to racing World of Outlaws Late Model races and let us get a win or 2 here," said a dejected Yoder. "I guess we can’t be too upset with a second, but I really wanted that one and we’ll just go on to next week and be one spot better hopefully."

Danny Dietrich Parks the Weikert #29 in Victory Lane During Night 1 of the the Bob Weikert Memorial

By: Justin Snyder

PORT ROYAL, Pa- On a weekend where honoring legendary car owner Bob Weikert was the main attraction at Port Royal Speedway, it was only fitting that a famed Red, White and Blue Weikert's Livestock #29 would be sitting in victory lane to close out the night.

"I think old Bob is probably up there smiling tonight," said Todd Weikert, son of the National Sprint Car Hall of Famer owner. "He lived for seeing that #29 in victory lane."

Danny Dietrich, driving a tribute Weikert paint scheme #29 different from his normal #48, fought off Logan Wagner in a fierce battle to claim 10 thousand dollars, plus $1,500 in bonus money in night one of the Memorial Day weekend tradition and the Steer Head trophy that comes with it.

"That trophy right there is what it’s all about, " beamed Dietrich, of Gettysburg. "We been wanting to get one of those things for years and we finally pulled it off."

But it wasn't easy. Not only did he have to get by and hold off Wagner, but incoming rain showers were threatening to halt racing action.

Wagner and Dietrich led the field to the green flag after fast qualifier and high point man of the night Ryan Smith drew a 3 invert prior to the feature event.

Wagner, the Weikert's Livestock 410 Series defending point champion and current speedway points leader jumped out to the early lead with Dietrich in tow. Lucas Wolfe moved into 4th from his fifth starting position coming out of turn 2 on the opening circuit and briefly slid into third before settling into 4th at the flag stand.

Within three laps, Wagner had built up a 1 second lead and was cruising around the top of the speedway. He would nearly double that distance over Dietrich before entering lap traffic on lap 7. This allowed Dietrich to cut the distance in half.

However, Wagner was slicing his way through lap traffic with ease and he continued to halt any momentum Dietrich could make by putting the lap cars between himself and Dietrich on the top of the speedway.

It appeared that it was smooth sailing for Wagner, but Tyler Bear came to a stop on the front stretch on lap 20, wiping out a 1.213 second advantage and bunching the front runners together to take their shots at claiming victory.

And you wouldn’t know it from how fast he looked, but Wagner was having issues as well. A broken rear shock sustained early in the feature on his famed Zemco Sprint Car was giving him fits, making the car hard to hold onto at times.

On the restart, Dietrich slid through the middle of turns 1 and 2 to grab the early lead. But Wagner, with a head of steam, pulled alongside Dietrich entering turn 3 and attempted to slide back under him coming out of turn 4. The pair drag raced to the line with Wagner holding a narrow advantage at the flag on lap 21.

Once again, the pair exchanged the lead in turn 3 and 4 the following lap, with Dietrich pulling a slide job on Wagner. However, Wagner crossed back under Dietrich to once again claim the lead by the slightest of margins at the flag stand with 8 laps to go.

It looked as if fans were going to be treated to a 4-car battle as Ryan Smith and Lance Dewease had closed in on the pair with the 2 cars swapping the lead, however racing was once again stalled on lap 23 when Tyler Reeser blew a right rear tire on the front stretch and Dan Shetler also came to a stop.

Still feeling the conditions of the broken shock, Wagner attempted to move down the track as green flag action returned. He would once again jump out to the lead, but Dietrich capitalized a lap later and made the winning pass in turns 3 and 4, using the bottom to take momentum from Wagner and hold the lead.

That was all he needed. Over the remaining 6 laps, Dietrich would build up a 1.4 second lead at one point and would cross the finish line with a 1.382 second advantage over Wagner to claim the coveted trophy.

"We been running this place a little more this year and it was all to be able to win that Bull," said Dietrich in victory lane. "This is a dream come true and man is this just great!"

A dejected Wagner settled for second and set his sights on night 2 of the event.

"I broke a left rear shock, so I was cruising around there with three shocks and what was left there hanging on the frame," said Wagner. "We did all we could to hold him off for 20 laps and I hated to see those cautions."

"We'll get 4 shocks on it for tomorrow and we'll give it another go and see if we can’t be sitting one spot higher tomorrow night."

Smith, Dewease and Wolfe completed the top 5 with Anthony Macri, Ryan Taylor, Tj Stutts, Jared Esh and Mike Wagner filling out the top 10.

Rain started to fall following the completion of the 410 Sprint Car feature event, forcing speedway officials to move the 5 thousand to win River Valley Builders Super Late Model featre event to the beginning of Sunday's finale.

Abbottstown, PA (May 25, 2019) – Brian Montieth’s 63rd win at Lincoln wasn’t an easy one. Montieth lined up eighth as Trey Hivner and Cole Young led the field to the green flag.

Hivner took the lead as the green flag dropped with Young settling into second. Chase Dietz got around Tim Glatfelter on the first lap for fourth.

Ft. Myers, Florida native, RC Roper, pulled in on lap 3. Lap 3 also saw Adam Wilt move into fifth moving Glatfelter back to sixth.

By lap 4 Montieth had made his way up to sixth from his eighth starting spot.

Hivner hit lapped traffic on lap 5 with Young closing in. Once Hivner put the first car a lap down he created some space between Young. It didn’t take Young long to close the gap but his run to take over first was put on hold when the caution came out on lap 8 for Barry Shearer when he got spun around in turn 2. Shearer rejoined the field.

Hivner led the field to the cone for the restart with Young, Glenndon Forsythe, Dietz and Montieth in line behind him.

Hivner got a good start and left Young to battle Forsythe for second. Forsythe tried the outside and nearly made it work with Young beating him back to the flag stand by inches. The next time around Young held onto second by a car length having created some space between Forsythe.

Montieth got around Forsythe for third on lap 11 and started to go to work on Young for second with Hivner 2.5 seconds out in front of the battle.

The battle for second caught up with Hivner with 10 laps to go as he tried to get around a lapped car. The top three were running within a second of each other.

Young tried a slide job for the lead on lap 19 in turns 3 and 4. Montieth managed to get under both Young and Hivner with one move in turn 4 during their battle for first to take the lead. The slide job worked as Young got around Hivner, holding on to second with Hivner falling back to third.

Montieth beat Young to the checkered flag by 1.337 seconds for his 63rd victory in the pigeon hills. Hivner held onto third. Glenndon Forsythe crossed the line fourth and Adam Wilt finished fifth.

Heat winners were Trey Hivner and Glenndon Forsythe.

Jeremy Ott Wins Rain Shortened Legends Feature

Jeremy Ott and Bill Diehl shared the front row of Saturday night’s feature. Ott got out to the lead with Diehl trying to make the outside work to take the lead. Before the first lap was complete the caution came out. Austin Bellemare, Cory Phillips, Rick Hartwig, Chandler Pagnotta and Tony Mrakovich got caught up in turns 3 and 4. Jorjie Sweger came to a stop on the front stretch.

The field lined up for a complete restart. This time Diehl made the outside work and got the lead on the start. Ott was close and all over Diehl for first.

Travis McClelland was up to fourth from his ninth starting spot on lap two. On the next lap McClelland got by Bill Diehl for third going into turn 1.

Diehl started to pull away from the field. Travis Perry was working on Blaine Leppo for fourth. Perry got his nose under Leppo on lap 5 but Leppo beat him back to the flag stand. Perry made the move for fourth on the next lap.

McClelland was on Ott’s bumper as he tried to take second. The pair caught Diehl on lap 10 with the top three running bumper to bumper.

The leaders caught lapped traffic on lap 12 but moved around the first car maintaining their single file line.

The caution flag came out on lap 14 for Cory Phillips who came to a stop in turn 4.

Diehl led the field to the cone for the single file restart. Ott stuck his nose under Diehl for first coming out of turn 4 but Diehl held the spot.

The next lap Ott stuck his nose under Diehl coming out of turn 4, but this time it worked, and he beat Diehl back to the flag stand to take the lead.

The caution came out again on lap 17 for Patrick Debroisse, Zach Settle and Rick Hartwig. Hartwig was able to drive away. The caution turned to red flag conditions when Debroisse’s car went up in flames. Debroisse walked away from the fire.

Before the field could get lined up to complete the final three laps rain started to fall. The track crew ran in the track and just as it was coming in rain came again. The feature finish was made official.

Legends heat winners were Bill Diehl, Travis McClelland, Mason Chaney and Chris Transeau. The Legends consy races were won by Chandler Pagnotta and Zach Smith.

The 358-sprint car feature will be made up on Saturday, June 15.

Rahmer Wires Sprints For Williams Grove Paxton Tribute, Halligan Takes 358s

5/24/19

Mechanicsburg – Freddie Rahmer wired the field for the win in Friday night’s Lynn Paxton Tribute race for 410 sprints at Williams Grove Speedway.

Rahmer collected $4,771 for the victory, the seventh of his young career at the oval.

In the 358 sprint feature, Jeff Halligan took the lead from Rodney Westhafer late to pick up his second career speedway win.

Rahmer drove to his win from the pole of the main that honored former three-time track champion Paxton of Dillsburg.

He began the main with Danny Dietrich to his outside and got the drop on the field at the initial green.

Dietrich tried to keep Rahmer close but as the race wore on Rahmer just continually stretched his advantage over the field.

He entered the rear of the field on the seventh tour as the field strung out all around the track.

With five laps to go, Rahmer had a straightaway lead over a struggling Dietrich in traffic.

The advantage in the end was 4.846 seconds for the Salfordville speedster.

“It was kinda’ a crapshoot where we’d run,” Rahmer noted about his choices of lines around the speedway as the race began.

Rahmer praised the track for the lucrative payoff while questioning a 19-car field for the event.

“Williams Grove does a lot for us. $4,700 for 25 laps – I don’t know if guys are afraid to come here or what,” he said.

Dietrich rode home second followed by Lucas Wolfe, Ryan Smith and TJ Stutts.

Sixth through 10th went to Brian Montieth, Anthony Macri, Cory Haas, Kyle Reinhardt and Chad Trout.

Heats went to Dietrich and Rahmer while Wolfe recorded fast time over the field with a lap of 17.271 seconds while collecting $300 from Fast Tees Screenprinting for his efforts under the clock.

Rodney Westhafer led from the pole at the start of the 20-lap358 sprint main while Cody Fletcher gave chase early.

Jeff Halligan started sixth in the field and worked into second with four away.

But by that time Westhafer had built a comfortable lead but a lone yellow flag in the event with six laps down gave him a clear shot at the leader.

Once able to start with the leader, Halligan stayed close to Westhafer and dogged him until lap 13 when he took the lead coming out of turn four.

Halligan then handled the field the rest of the distance while seventh starter Doug Hammaker worked his way to the front, getting by Westhafer for second with two laps to go but failing to catch the leader.

Westhafer held on for third followed by Fletcher and Scott Fisher.

Sixth through 10th went to Kevin Nouse, Matt Findley, Kyle Denmyer, Brett Wanner and Dylan Norris.

Heats went to Wanner, Fisher and Norris with Denmyer taking the consolation race.

THERE’S A STORM HEADING EAST. . . . . . . . . ..

USAC AMSOIL SPRINT CAR NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP EASTERN STORM OPENS AT GRANDVIEW TUESDAY NIGHT, JUNE 11, $10,000 TO WIN JESSE HOCKETT CLASSIC

BECHTELSVILLE, PA . . . . .Rain and bad weather has not been a friend to local short track racing of late, but all race fans welcome and look forward to this storm, the thirteenth annual EASTERN STORM for the USAC AMSOIL Non-Wing Sprint Cars, and it’s coming to the Grandview Speedway on Tuesday night, June 11 with the $10,000 to win Jesse Hockett Classic. The NASCAR 358 Modifieds will be part of this big doubleheader with qualifying events leading up to the 30 lap, $3,000 to win feature even.

This wildly popular traveling series comes east just one time a year and this show is one you just can’t miss. Watch the non-wing sprints slide and glide around the one-third mile high banked Grandview Speedway and you’ll see some wheel banging, rooster tails and wheelies. And that’s just warm-ups.

For the thirteenth consecutive year, the USAC AMSOIL Non Wing Sprint Car National Championship returns East with stops at the Grandview Speedway, Bridgeport Speedway, BAPS Motor Speedway, Port Royal and Weedsport Speedway’s. The five race swing, in keeping with tradition will open with the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill signature event at the Grandview Speedway. The Tuesday night, June 11 show will boast the USAC $10,000 to win Jesse Hockett Classic joined by the 358 NASCAR Modifieds with racing getting underway at 7:30 PM. This year also marks the 30th Anniversary of the Thunder on the Hill Racing Series.

Wednesday night, June 12 the Bridgeport Speedway will present the USAC AMSOIL Non-Wing sprints in a double header with the 600 micros, Thursday night, June 13 the tour moves to the BAP’S Speedway joined by the 360 Sprints and Super Sportsman. Saturday night, June 15 the traveling non-wing racers invade the Port Royal Speedway before closing out the swing at the popular Weedsport Speedway in Weedsport, NY on Sunday night, June 16. Defending USAC Eastern Storm Champion Chris Windom is already planning his trip East.

USAC brings a long and rich history especially to Berks County. USAC first raced in Berks County at the Reading Fairgrounds in 1956 and it was Oley, PA driver Tommy Hinnershitz who won the first three USAC events on the Reading half-mile. The USAC/Berks County tradition continued until April 1979 when Paul Pitzer took the win at what would be the final USAC event at the Reading Fairgrounds.

Grandview Track Owner Bruce Rogers and Thunder on the Hills’ Bob Miller made several attempts to bring 410 non-wing sprint cars back to Berks County, presenting CRA and SCRA events in the 1990’s . After many discussions, a deal was worked out and in June 2007, USAC made the trip to Grandview and it was Levi Jones who took the win in a historic USAC return to Berks County. Now in 2019, the Eastern Storm will mark its’ thirteenth tour to the East, opening on the famed “hill” of Grandview Speedway.

Drivers from all over the country will gather on the “hill” Tuesday night, June 11 for the 40 lap Jesse Hockett Classic and the roster will include Chris Windom, Justin Grant, C.J. Leary, Brady Bacon, Chase Stockon, Justin Grant, Tyler Courtney and Robert Ballou.

The Berks County one-third mile high banked Grandview Speedway is just the perfect setting for a USAC National Non-Win Championship event. USAC time trials at Grandview are usually more exciting than the main divisions elsewhere, so don’t miss time trials.

Advance tickets may be ordered for the Tuesday, June 11 USAC Sprints & Modified show by calling 443 513 4456. Please speak slowly and clearly when leaving a message and be sure to leave your name and number of tickets you will need. Feel free to leave your phone number as well.

URC GUNN MEMORIAL FOR 360 SPRINT CARS THIS SATURDAY; LIMITED LATE MODELS, PRO STOCKS, & ROADRUNNERS ROUND OUT HOLIDAY RACING PROGRAM

SELINSGROVE, Pa. -- Selinsgrove Speedway will present the 39th annual Insinger Performance/ Sunoco Race Fuels Jack Gunn Memorial for 360 sprint cars at 7 p.m. this Saturday, May 25, sanctioned by the United Racing Club.

The Gunn Memorial will feature a 30-lap race between the traveling URC 360 sprint cars and the track’s weekly 358-360 sprint cars. The race will pay $2,500 to win and $250 to start.

Joining the 360 sprint cars on the racing card will be the limited late models in a 30-lap championship paying $1,500 to win and $150 to start. The limited late model rules in effect for this race include 358 cubic inch maximum engines and Hoosier (1300 or harder) or American Racer (44 or harder) tires. The limited late model weight rule will be 2,350 pounds with driver.

Both the 360 sprint cars and limited late models will use group time trials and heat races as the qualifying format.

The pro stocks and roadrunners will compete in 15- and 12-lap features, respectively.

Co-hosts Tony Angelo and Lucky Costa of the popular MotorTrend Network show HOT ROD Garage have rescheduled the taping of a new episode featuring dirt track racing during this Saturday’s program. Angelo will compete in the speedway’s roadrunner division.

Grandstand and pit gates will open at 5 p.m.

The tribute race is run each year to honor the memory of the late race track promoter Jack Gunn, who operated Selinsgrove, Williams Grove, Penn National, and Hagerstown Speedways during his career and brought mid-state dirt track racing to national prominence in the 1970’s. Gunn was inducted posthumously into the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame (Knoxville, Iowa) in 1990.

Some of the biggest names in sprint car racing have won the prestigious Jack Gunn Memorial at Selinsgrove Speedway. Lynn Paxton of Dillsburg; Steve Kinser of Bloomington, Ind.; Doug Wolfgang of Sioux Falls, S.D., are a few of the drivers who have won the race as a 410 sprint car event. In the track’s modern era, TJ Stutts of Liverpool, Chad Layton of Harrisburg, Blane Heimbach of Selinsgrove, and Dave Calaman of Carlisle took wins as a 358 sprint car race.

The Gunn Memorial became a URC-sanctioned challenge race between 358 and 360 sprint car drivers in 2006, when Heimbach took the victory as well as in the 2008 and 2012 editions of the race. Calaman (2007); Trevor Lewis of Upper Black Eddy (2009, 2010); Shane Stewart of Indianapolis, Ind. (2011); JJ Grasso of Pedricktown, N.J. (2013); Aaron Ott of East Berlin (2014); Mark Smith of Sunbury (2015, 2016); and two-time defending winner Davie Franek of Wantage, N.J., have also won the Gunn Memorial as a URC-sanctioned event.

ECKERT MAKES LATE-RACE PASS FOR $11,000 RON KEISTER MEMORIAL VICTORY;
WALTER SCORES FIRST CAREER SPRINT CAR WIN; BACHMAN CAPS NIGHT WITH PRO STOCK CHECKERS

SELINSGROVE, Pa. Mason Ziegler of Chalk Hill looked like he was going to make his four hour tow payoff in a big way Saturday night at Selinsgrove Speedway but it was Rick Eckert of York who made a late-race pass on the 49th of 52 laps to take the win and $11,000 that was posted for the Ron Keister Memorial for super late models.

Keister, a rookie driver who was killed in April of 1976, was honored by the speedway and his family.

The victory was Eckert’s seventh career at the famed Snyder County half-mile oval.

Michael Walter of Selinsgrove scored his first career 360 sprint car win in the 25-lap feature that was worth $2,000.

Kyle Bachman of Selinsgrove capped off the night with his second win of the season in the 15-lap pro stock feature.

Selinsgrove Speedway returns to action at 7 p.m. next Saturday, May 25th, with the United Racing Club Jack Gunn Memorial for 360 sprint cars along with limited late models, pro stocks and roadrunners. Track gates will open at 5 p.m.

Starting on the pole in what was his first ever race at Selinsgrove Speedway, Mason Ziegler slid underneath Coleby Frye for the early lead in the late model race. The pair were followed by Rick Eckert, Randy Christine Jr. and Kyle Hardy.

In the early laps, Eckert got by Frye as Hardy followed. By lap 10 Ziegler had run into traffic and Eckert drew to his rear bumper. Hardy and Greg Satterlee soon joined the front runners.

Ziegler continued to slice through traffic while Eckert, a former World of Outlaw Champion stayed in contact but did not pressure him. Satterlee got by Hardy for third and was soon tracking down Eckert.

With the first 41 laps run without a caution, a planned competition yellow was thrown to allow for an 11 lap shootout in honor of Keister’s former car number.

The cars restarted using the Delaware restart with Ziegler choosing the bottom lane. As Ziegler took off, Dylan Yoder used the restart to drive into third. Eckert stayed glued to Ziegler’s bumper and tried to test him high but on the 49th lap Ziegler came off the fourth turn high. Eckert drove low and into the lead.

Almost immediately the caution came out as Jeff Rine, Ken Moreland, Jim Yoder and Shaun Jones got together in the third turn.

After a lengthy caution because a bumper got caught in the guardrail the race resumed for a green-white-checkered showdown.

Eckert checked out winning by .448 seconds over Ziegler, Yoder, Satterlee and Jared Miley.

Late model heats went to Ziegler, Alex Feree, Eckert and Frye. The B-Mains were won by Kenny Trevitz and Gene Knaub. Satterlee set fast time of 19.355 seconds over the 36-car field.

Mallie Schuster rocketed into the sprint car lead from the pole position. He was followed by Derek Locke, Michael Walter, Jason Shultz and Kyle Reinhardt.

Locke took the lead on the next go around and the race was cautioned on lap three for a spin by Dave McGough and Jim Schuster.

Walter, Schuster, and Shultz raced the next lap three wide before Walter grabbed second and Schultz settled into third.

Shultz running low and Walter racing high in a side by side race allowed Locke to open a lead by over four seconds when he slowed and pulled off the track on lap 19.

“I saw him go low and pull in.” Walter said. “My engine was getting hot and I was hoping it would hold up just a few more laps. We’ve tried and failed so many times it feels great to win this one.”

Walter was followed by Shultz, Layton, Reinhardt and Mallie Schuster.

The win was Walter’s first at the speedway after starting his career on the 1/5th mile inner oval and the third generation of his family to race at the speedway.

Sprint car heats were won by Locke and Layton

Shaun Lawton blasted to the front of the pro stock feature followed by Kyle Bachman, Brandon Moser, AJ Hoffman and Tommy Dawson.

Bachman pulled even with Lawton and the pair ran side by side until lap eight when Bachman inched into the lead.

A last lap caution for Dawson and Wayne Shaffer bunched the field on Bachman’s rear but the defending track champion won his second race of the season over Moser, Lawton, Hoffman and AJ Stroup.

Kyle Bachman and Brandon Moser won the pro stock heats.

Dewease Wins Grove 95th Over Outlaws In Impressive Style, Nets 17K For Victory

5/18/19

Mechanicsburg – Pennsylvania driver Lance Dewease drove by World of Outlaws champion Donny Schatz not once, but twice, on Saturday night to score the $17,000 Morgan Cup title for the 95th victory of his career at Williams Grove Speedway.

First, Dewease drove by Schatz in the six-lap dash to earn the pole for the main event by driving away and then in the 30-lap feature, after Schatz got the early lead, the Fayetteville flyer repeated the feat to get the win.

Schatz was leading over Dewease and Danny Dietrich on the second tour when the only caution flag of the race unfurled for a slowing Logan Schuchart.

Schatz chose the outside lane for the double file restart and again pulled out in front of Dewease when action resumed.

But Dewease was able to prevent Schatz from getting too far out in front, keeping him in sight so that when the leader ran up on the rear of the field beginning on lap 10, he was able to quickly close the distance.

From laps 10 through 14 Schatz had the rear of the field just in front of him, in essence bunching up the leaders with Dietrich still in third after having lost the spot to Daryn Pittman only to reclaim it.

Schatz officially began lapping cars on the 15th tour and that’s when Dewease rode his lowside money lane into control as the pair raced out of the fourth corner.

With 10 laps to go, Dewease had a 2.416 second lead as he worked through traffic flawlessly.

Schatz did seem to gain momentum during the final five circuits as he took one second off of Dewease’s advantage before the finish, to cross the line 1.251 seconds behind.

“It normally takes five or six laps for it to get going really good,” Dewease said of his car.

“I thought we’d be alright if I could get in front of him (Schatz).

Dewease’s 84-year old mechanic Dave Brown Sr. remarked on the car’s performance and its performer.

“The car was working pretty good tonight. It’s not quite there but it’s pretty good,” he said.

“He’s amazing,” Brown said of driver Dewease.

“He doesn’t spin the wheels and he’s so smooth. I couldn’t ask for anybody any better, I can tell you that.”

Dietrich ended up third followed by Pittman and Freddie Rahmer.

Sixth through 10th went to Kraig Kinser, 24th starter Giovanni Scelzi, Brent Marks, David Gravel and Jacob Allan.

Heats went to Dewease, Dietrich, Rahmer and Schatz with Scelzi winning the C Main and Carson Macedo taking the B Main.

Dewease won the dash to earn the pole for the feature.

Kraig Kinser set fast time over the 38 car field with a lap of 19.334 seconds.

Gravel Overtakes Pittman For Williams Grove World Of Outlaws Win Friday

5/17/19

Mechanicsburg – David Gravel powered under Daryn Pittman in the first and second turns to score the World of Outlaws sprint car win at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night.

The win was worth $8,000 for Gravel aboard the Jason Johnson Racing No. 41 machine. It was the fifth victory of the Connecticut driver’s career at the oval.

Gravel started the 25-lap feature on the pole but it was Oklahoma’s Pittman aboard the Roth Motorsports entry who took the lead when the race began with Gravel and Danny Dietrich giving chase.

Gravel and Dietrich kept pace with the leader during the first 10 laps of the race so when Pittman entered the rear of the field on the 12th circuit, they were in the hunt for the lead.

Dietrich had actually gotten around Gravel for second by the time the race got to traffic but Gravel was back in second and ready to challenge for the win as Pittman began working the backmarkers.

Gravel drove low across the first corner at the halfway point to snare control but before he could get settled into command the only caution flag of the race unfurled with eight laps to go for a stopped Jason Sides.

Prior to the yellow flag, 10th starter Lance Dewease was making haste through the field and was up to fifth but with the field sorted out and single file for the return to green, he fell back one spot before the finish.

Dietrich worked his way by Pittman with six laps to go by zipping the top lane but he failed to mount a challenge for the victory.

Instead, Gravel motored to a 1.518 second lead with Dietrich, Pittman, Shane Stewart and Tim Shaffer in tow.

Sixth through 10th went to Dewease, Giovanni Scelzi, Donny Schatz, Brad Sweet and Chad Trout.

“I think i need to move to PA ‘cuz this state treats me well,” winner Gravel said after taking the checkers.

“I was able to find the bottom in one and two and could run anywhere in three and four."

Dewease set overall quick time on the 40-car field with a lap of 16.761 seconds, an average speed of 109.970 mph.

Heats went to Gravel, Scelzi, Shaffer and Dietrich.

Lucas Wolfe won the C Main with Cory Haas taking the B Main.

Gavel earned the pole for the main by winning the dash race.

The World of Outlaws series returns to Williams Grove on Saturday night, May 18 for a $17,000 to win, 30-lap main event run as The Morgan Cup.

Saturday, June 8, 2019 (7:30PM) 410 Sprints + 360/358 Sprint Car Challenge + York Flooring Kids Big Wheel Races

Abbottstown, PA (May 15, 2019) – With the sun shining on a Wednesday evening, 43 cars signed into the pits for the $10,000 to win Gettysburg Clash. Wednesday marked the World of Outlaws’ first visit to Central PA in 2019 and leading up to the race the Posse vs. the Outlaws narrative was alive and well.

As Lance Dewease climbed out of his car in victory lane after the 35-lap feature, chants of “Posse” could be heard loud and clear. Despite starting on the pole of the dash, Lance finished second to David Gravel. The two shared the front row of the main event with Gravel getting the lead when the green flag dropped.

Daryn Pittman nearly got by Dewease for second but Dewease held the spot. Brad Sweet went to work Tim Shaffer for the fourth spot and tried the low side in 3 and 4 but couldn’t take the position.

Dewease started to reel Gravel in with some good runs coming off of turn 2, but every time Dewease would get close, Gravel managed create more distance between the two.

Gravel and Dewease hit lapped traffic on lap 7. As the leaders worked their way around lapped cars, Gravel was able to keep Dewease at bay. On lap 12 it looked like Dewease was closing in on Gravel, but again Gravel pulled away.

Dewease had Gravel’s lead down to under a second on lap 16. Both Dewease and Gravel went to the bottom in turns 1 and 2 on lap 18 with Dewease coming out with the lead. Dewease created distance between Gravel right away, but Gravel caught up to him in lapped traffic.

Just like when Gravel would pull away when Dewease got close, Dewease did the same to Gravel after he caught him battling lapped cars. Dewease had his lead up to over a second with 10 laps to go.

The first caution came out on lap 28 for Pittman when he got turned around in turn 3. Pittman was running third when he brought out the caution and was able to rejoin the field.

With under 10 laps remaining, Dewease led the field to the cone for a single file restart. Gravel was right on Dewease’s bumper on the restart but Dewease held him off. Ryan Smith got around Lucas Wolfe for fourth.

Lap 29 saw the second caution of the race as Brian Montieth, Shaffer and Brandon Rahmer got caught up in turns 3 and 4. Montieth rejoined the field.

This time Dewease got a good jump on the restart. Smith also had a solid restart and got around Gravel for second riding the top of turns 3 and 4.

With clean air Dewease was glued to the bottom of the track in the turns and was separating himself from the rest of the field as Smith was rim ridding the corners to try and catch him.

Dewease had over a second lead with two laps to go and beat Smith to the checkered flag by 1.677 seconds. Gravel held onto third. Brad Sweet crossed the line fourth and Shane Stewart completed the top five.

Donny Schatz was the hard charger. After using a provisional to start 25th, Schatz finished the night 11th.

Schatz, the current point leader of the World of Outlaws and Alan Krimes, the current point leader at Lincoln, each had to use a provisional to compete in the A-main. It is also worth noting that last year’s Gettysburg Clash winner, Freddie Rahmer, failed to qualify for the main event. Rahmer won the C-main and finished 11th in the B-main.

Heat winners were Brad Sweet, Lance Dewease, David Gravel and Tim Shaffer.

This Saturday, May 18, Lincoln Speedway will be dark. The following Saturday, May 25, Lincoln Speedway is back in action with the 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints and Central PA Legends. Racing starts at 7:30PM with pit gates opening at 5:00PM and grandstand gates opening at 5:30PM.

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY BATTLES ANOTHER RAINY WEEKEND: SHULTZ, SCHADEL, MOSER & JONES TAKE CHECKERED FLAGS

SELINSGROVE, Pa. - Jason Shultz of Carlisle won the 25-lap 360 sprint car feature from the 16th starting spot at Selinsgrove Speedway Saturday night. The victory was Shultz’s second of the season and 20th career at the Snyder County half-mile oval.

Brett Schadel of Herndon was victorious in the 25-lap late model race. It was Schadel’s third career win in a super late model at the speedway. Both Shultz and Schadel received the top prize of $2000 for their victories.

Brandon Moser of Middleburg won the 15-lap pro stock race, while Jake Jones of Hunlock Creek took the 12-lap roadrunner nightcap.

The Selinsgrove Speedway will be back in action at 7 p.m. next Saturday May 18, when the super late models will race 52 laps in the Ron Keister Memorial paying $11,000 to win out of the huge $40,000 purse. The 360 sprint cars and pro stocks will also be in action. All track gates will open at 4 p.m.

For the second week in a row a shower started as the sprint cars were pushed to the speedway. The cars returned to the pits as it showered harder. Like they did last week the track crew went right to work and saved the track.

Mark Smith split the front row starters to rocket to the front of the sprint car feature followed by Cody Keller, Kyle Reinhardt, Derek Locke and Michael Walter. Curt Stoup brought out the caution on lap eight when he slowed on the speedway.

Reinhardt got a great restart and took second from Keller but the field was again slowed on lap 11 when Ryan Kissinger and Locke stopped on the track.

The restart saw Jason Shultz get by Keller and immediately pressure Reinhardt. Shultz moved into second one lap later and started to track down Smith. “We really got a good start on the second one.” Shultz stated. “We could go high or low.”

Smith looked unbeatable but in the final laps a puff of smoke ended Smith’s evening as he stopped on the back stretch handing the lead to Shultz. Shultz led the final circuit winning by .495 seconds over Reinhardt, Keller Chad Layton and Walter.

“When I saw the smoke coming out of Mark’s car I knew it was not good. I just wanted to be in a different lane in case something happened.” Shultz said. “It’s too bad for Mark but we’ll take it.”

Sprint car heats were won by Chad Layton and Cody Keller.

Donnie Schick led Brett Schadel into the first turn at the start of the late model feature. The pair were followed by Jim Yoder, Bryan Bernheisel, Jeff Rine and Colby Frye.

Schadel passed Schick on lap four for the lead and Bernheisel followed into the runner up spot.

“Randy (Keister) guessed right and put on a soft tire.” Schadel said. “We knew Colby (Frye) and (Jeff) Rine would go a little harder. We wanted to get the lead early and try to hold them off.”

A lap nine restart gave Rine a shot at Bernheisel which he used to grab second. Frye soon followed into third. Frye and Rine entertained the fans with some high speed cat and mouse as Schadel continued to lead.

Frye and Rine raced lap 20 side by side before Frye grabbed second. A lap later Rine was back underneath but Frye used a lapped car as a pick to maintain second.

The battle for second played into Schadel’s hands as he rolled to .84 second win.

“By lap nine our right rear tire was shot.” Schadel continued. “I used the cushion to turn the car. The track was great tonight.”

Following Schadel and Rine were Ross Robinson, Bernheisel and Randy Christine.

Late model heats went to Hayes Mattern, Yoder and Bernheisel.

Lori Croop took the pro stock feature lead from the pole position and was followed by Shaun Lawton, John Troxell, Tommy Dawson and Brandon Moser. By the third lap, Lawton had taken the lead with Moser on his tail.

Making his first start of the season AJ Hoffman was soon in third and joined the battle for the lead. As Hoffman and Moser traded slide jobs, Lawton opened the lead. Once Hoffman was clear of Moser he quickly tracked down Lawton when the yellow came out on lap 10.

Hoffman used the restart and the high side of the speedway to take the lead. One lap later, Moser followed into the runner up spot. Moser tested Hoffman and found some grip coming off the second turn. He shot around Hoffman going into the third turn and came off the fourth turn with the lead and the win. Hoffman, Lawton, Kyle Bachman and Cory Long rounded out the top five.

Dawson and Moser won the pro stock heats.

Jake Jones took the lead on the final lap over Will Brunson to win the roadrunner feature. Curtis Lawton, Jason Zook and Bob Bussey rounded out the top five. Jones had also won last night in a kart on the inner Selinsgrove Raceway Park oval.

Curtis Lawton and Jason Zook won the roadrunner heats.

Jeff Miller Picks Up First Ever Weikerts Livestock 410 Feature on Rainy Night

By Justin Snyder

PORT ROYAL, Pa- They say the first one is the sweetest! Jeff Miller held off a hard charging Lucas Wolfe and Mother Nature to pick up his first career Weikert's Livestock 410 Sprint Car victory in his rookie season Saturday night at 'The Speed Palace'.

"I started racing go-carts when I was five and this is what I always wanted to do. I can’t believe it happened this early," said an excited Miller in victory lane.

With rains in the forecast, Speedway officials moved up the start time an hour early for Bobby Rahal Toyota of Lewistown Ladies Night. And throughout the night rain would spit from the sky, threatening to cancel the final track time for the cars prior to the Weikert Memorial in two-weeks.

However after persistent effort and the track and teams moving the program along, Justin Whittal and Miller would lead the 410's to the green for an all Rookie front row. Whittal jumped out to the early lead over Jared Esh, but racing action was halted when Dustin Baney got upside down in turns 1 and 2 before ever completing a lap.

When racing activity returned, Whittal once again jumped out to the lead, this time with Miller in tow and Esh in third.

As Whittal was stretching his lead, Dylan Cisney was an early mover, sliding into 4th on lap 5. One lap later, Miller would take the lead, powering under Whittal down the front stretch and taking the point at the flagstand.

"After warmups, I really didn’t have a clue what to do with the car," said Miller. "I started adjusting the wing and I think it really helped me out there."

Miller started to check out. Meanwhile on lap 9, Esh moved alongside of Whittal going down the backstretch and took the second position.

Wolfe, who started seventh in the feature, began to make his move towards the front on lap 10, cracking the top 5 and moving past Cisney for 4th a lap later.

Meanwhile, Miller hit lap traffic on lap 12. As he rode the top of the speedway, Mother Nature also began to show her muscle, as persistent drops fell from the sky.

Wolfe slid Whittal in turns 1 and 2 on lap 14 and 4 laps later used the top of the speedway coming out of turn 2 to power under Esh entering turn 3 to move into the second position.

On lap 21, Miller would struggle with passing the lap cars of Trenton Sheaffer and Adrian Shaffer, allowing Wolfe to close within a car length of him.

Both leaders cleared the lap cars and over the final 3 laps, Miller would stick to the top of the speedway while Wolfe ran a line lower in turns 1 and 2 and attempted multiple runs through the center of speedway in turns 3 and 4.

However, with a slick racing surface due to rains, Wolfe couldn't make it stick. He'd try one final time in turns 3 and 4 of the final circuit, pulling alongside Miller, however Miller powered off the top of the speedway to win his first career 410 Sprint Car victory by a margin of .292 seconds.

"We decided to do this deal this season and this is really a family thing, but we are learning every week," said Miller, who previously ran in the 305 Sprint Car ranks. "This is really a dream come true and I'm really just speechless."

Blane Heimbach finished third followed by Esh and Cisney in the top 5. Tj Stutts, track point leader Logan Wagner, Mike Wagner, Whittal and Ryan Taylor closed out the top 10.

410 Sprint Car Feature Finish, 25 Laps: 1. Jeff Miller; 2. Lucas Wolfe; 3. Blane Heimbach; 4. Jared Esh; 5. Dylan Cisney; 6. T.J. Stutts; 7. Logan Wagner; 8. Mike Wagner; 9. Justin Whittall; 10.

Super Late Models

Gene Knaub, of Dover, Pa, picked up his second career Super Late Model victory at Port Royal Speedway over Dylan Yoder in the River Valley Builders Super Late Model feature.

Tim Wilson and Dillan Stake started on the front row for the feature, with Wilson jumping out to the early lead over fourth starting Mike Lupfer and Stake.

On lap 2, Knaub would begin his march to the front, passing Stake in turns 3 and 4 for the 3rd position.

Over the next several laps, Wilson looked to be in command as he stretched his lead over Lupfer and Knaub. On lap 11, Knaub used some momemtum coming out of turn 2 to power under Lupfer for the second position on the backstretch.

However, Colton Flinner was turning heads using the extreme high-line of the speedway to move forward from his tenth starting position, cracking the top 5 on lap 11.

As Wilson attempted the pass the lap car of Scott Flickinger on lap 12, both Knaub and Lupfer were on the tail of the leader. After clearing the lap car, Knaub used the middle of turns 3 and 4 to pull alongside of Wilson and take the lead at the flagstand.

There would be no looking back for Knaub. Yoder would move into the second place on lap 20, however Knaub would take the $2000 winners share and the 25-lap checkered flag by 2.108 seconds over Yoder, Wilson, Gary Stuhler and Lupfer.

"We really struggled there in the beginning, however I'm really blessed to drive a great racecar," said Knaub of his victory. "We always look great early in the night and by feature time we just don’t have it. Just thankful to be in victory lane tonight and to beat the rain."

Flinner, Nick Dickson, Stake, Dave Zona and Austin Berry completed the top 10.

PASS 305 Sprint Cars.

Ken Duke picked up his second Penns Valley Meat Market PASS IMCA 305 Sprint Car victory of the season over Jonathon Jones in the 20 lap feature event.

Jones and Duke started on the front row, with Duke getting the lead on the start. Racing action would be slowed when Dave Grube slowed to a stop on the speedway on lap 3.

Once again, Duke took the lead at the green flag with Jones in tow. The front 2 cars jumped out to a huge lead before Nick Sweigart got into the wall in turn 3 to bring out the caution on lap 5.

Duke would again jump out the lead at the restart and him and Jones would set a blistering pace. Clearly the class of the field the two got out to a nearly 5 second advantage to the third place car. Jones would attempt to make it interesting over the final laps of the race, however he wouldn’t have enough to best Duke as he claimed the checkered flag by an advantage of .551 seconds.

Jones, Roger Irvine, Doug Dodsen and Devin Adams filled out the top 5 with John Scarborough, Jeremi Hanson, John Fiore, Jake Frye and Zach Newlin completing the top 10.

LINCOLN SPEEDWAY

Abbottstown, PA

Montieth Proves He’s Ready for the Outlaws; Robbie Kendall Goes Wire to Wire for Make-Up Feature Victory; Tyler Ross Wins First Race of 2019; Steve Buckwalter Impressive in Midget Feature Win

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Wednesday, May 15, 2019 (7:30PM) World of Outlaws Gettysburg Clash

Saturday, May 25, 2018 (7:30PM) 410 Sprints + 358 Sprints + Central PA Legends (ARCH Night)

Saturday, June 1, 2019 (7:30PM) 410 Sprints + 358 Sprints [Regular Show + Make-up Feature from May 4] + Wingless Super Sportsman

Abbottstown, PA (May 11, 2019) – For the second week in a row Lincoln Speedway officials made the decision to push the start time up two hours to try and beat Mother Nature. Luckily with four features to run, the move worked this Saturday with the rain beginning to fall as Robbie Kendall pulled his car into victory lane after the fourth feature.

Going through the Lincoln Record Books, one would need to go back to 2014 to find a year it took Brian Montieth longer to find victory lane. In 2014 Montieth waited until May 31st to earn his first win of the season. Montieth earned his first victory of 2019 on Saturday night during the $4,000 to win World of Outlaws tune-up.

Montieth started on the pole of the 25-lap feature, with Alan Krimes to his outside. Krimes used the top of the track to take the lead as the green flag dropped. Third starting Danny Dietrich started to go to work on Montieth for second. The leaders hit lapped traffic on lap 4.

Typically, more comfortable running the top of the track, Montieth tried the bottom to get by Krimes on lap 5. It looked like it worked until Montieth got held up by a slowing car allowing Krimes to keep the lead.

Montieth dove to the bottom of turn 3 on lap 7 to try and get the lead and it was a drag race to the flag stand, but Krimes held him off again. Any momentum Montieth could carry from the front stretch going into turn 1 went away coming out of turn 2 until lap 10. Montieth got under Krimes in 1 and 2 on lap 10 and made it stick. Dietrich followed to take second.

Dietrich was getting a great run off of turn 2 to keep pace with Montieth. Montieth narrowly split two lapped cars battling for position on lap 13 to put them between him and Dietrich. As Dietrich worked on the lapped cars Montieth was able to pull away.

Once Dietrich made his way past the lapped cars, he had Montieth’s lead down to under a second by lap 18. Two laps later Montieth’s lead was back up over a second as Dietrich got tied up in lapped traffic again.

Freddie Rahmer had gotten by Krimes for third on lap 14 but Krimes didn’t let him out of his sight. Krimes got Rahmer back on lap 23 as Rahmer got caught behind a lapped car.

Montieth beat Dietrich to the checkered flag by .635 seconds to win the non-stop feature. Not only was the feature non-stop, it was record setting. Total running time was 6:19.113, the fastest 25 laps on record at Lincoln Speedway. Krimes held onto third. Rahmer crossed the line fourth and Anthony Macri completed the top five.

Heat winners were Cole Young, Freddie Rahmer and Jim Siegel. Danny Dietrich set quick time over the 28-car field with a lap of 13.112 seconds.

Robbie Kendall Goes Wire to Wire for Make-Up Feature Victory

Robbie Kendall started on the pole of Saturday night’s make-up feature from last week’s rain-shortened event. Bradley Howard started on the outside of row one.

Kendall was out to the lead when the green flag dropped and had nearly a four-second advantage over Howard by lap 4.

Scott Fisher and Trey Hivner battled for third early in the race with Hivner taking the spot-on lap 4. Kendall hit lapped traffic on lap 5 but it didn’t slow him down.

Anthony Macri had worked his way up to third from his eighth starting spot by lap 8.

Kendall’s lead was over 5 seconds by lap 11. Freddie Rahmer was running fourth after starting ninth by lap 12 and started to work on Macri for third. Rahmer tried a slide job to take the spot from Macri on lap 13 but couldn’t make it stick.

The caution flag came out on lap 13 for Hivner when he got spun around in turns 3 and 4. Hivner was running fifth when he brought out the caution. The caution wiped away Kendall’s 4.9 second lead over Howard.

Macri was all over Howard for second on the restart and took the spot after getting under Howard in turns 3 and 4. Rahmer followed on the next lap and took third from Howard.

Dietrich moved up to fourth on lap 15 and started to work on Rahmer for third. As the top four, Kendall, Macri, Rahmer & Dietrich, ran the top line around the track they started to pull away from the rest of the field.

Rahmer tried to the bottom of the track on lap 19 but couldn’t make a move to get around Macri. The leaders hit lapped traffic with five laps to go. Dietrich got around Rahmer for third on lap 21. Rahmer made a run for the third spot on lap 23 but couldn’t beat Dietrich bag to the flag stand.

The caution flag came out with one lap to go when Macri got turned around in turns 1 and 2 after making a move for the lead.

Kendall led the field to the cone for a one lap shoot out. Rahmer got under Dietrich in turns 1 and 2 on the restart to take second with Kendall holding onto the lead.

Kendall won his second career Lincoln Speedway feature by .319 seconds over Freddie Rahmer. Dietrich crossed the line third. Howard finished fourth and Cory Haas rounded out the top five.

Tyler Ross Wins First Race of 2019

Tyler Ross didn’t have an easy path to victory on Saturday night starting eighth in the 20-lap main event. Zach Allman started on the pole with Travis Scott on the outside of the front row.

Scott was out to the with Allman and Cody Fletcher drag racing for second, with Allman holding on to the spot.

Ross had worked his way around Matt Findley for fourth on lap 5. Doug Hammaker followed to take fifth from Findley.

The caution came out on lap 8 for Alyson Dietz when she got sideways in turn 2. Dietz rejoined the field.

Scott led the field to the cone for the single file restart with Allman in second, Fletcher running third and Ross in fourth. Ross went to the top on the restart and was up to second after getting around Fletcher in turns 1 and 2 and Allman in turns 3 and 4.

Ross then tracked down Scott to battle for the lead. Scott held onto the lead by a nose on lap 10 but Ross took the lead coming out of turn 2 on lap 11.

Dylan Orwig brought out the caution on lap 11 when he got turned around in turn 3. This time Ross lead the field to the cone. Ross held onto the lead and started to pull away from the field as Hammaker went to work on Ross for second. Scott was running the top of the track while Hammaker was working the bottom.

With Ross pulling away and Scott and Hammaker battling for second, Jeff Halligan worked his way through the field. Halligan was running sixth after the restart on lap 12 and moved up to fifth on lap 13. With two laps to go Halligan was up to fourth.

Hammaker finally got around Scott with a slide job in 3 and 4 to beat him to the white flag for second.

Ross crossed the line 4.170 seconds ahead of Hammaker. Scott held onto third. Halligan crossed the line fourth and Fletcher finished fifth.

Heat winners were Cody Fletcher and Doug Hammaker.

Steve Buckwalter Impressive in Midget Feature Win

With 18 midgets signed into the pits at the start of the night the decision was made to run a feature only program. The field was timed during warm-ups with the top six inverted for the feature line-up.

The invert put Eric Heydenreich on the pole of the 20-lap feature with Shawn Jackson on the outside of row 1. By the time cars were rolling onto the track for the main event, 21 midgets made the call.

Jackson was out to the lead from the outside of row 1 when the green flag dropped. Buckwalter was up to second from his fourth starting spot in one lap with Kameron Morral holding onto third. Ryan Smith got around Morral on the backstretch for third on lap 2.

Steve Drevicki got around Eric Heydenreich on lap 4 for sixth. Alex Bright, a late addition to the line-up, started at the rear of the field and had worked his way up to 10th by lap 6.

Buckwalter tried a slide job on Jackson for the lead in turns 1 and 2 on lap 7 and it worked. The caution came out on lap 8 for Rich Heydenreich as he slowed on the track.

Buckwalter led the field to the cone for the restart with Jackson, Smith, Tommy Kunsman and Morral nose-to-tail behind him.

Jackson tried the bottom on the restart, but he ended up getting chased down by Smith down the backstretch with Smith taking the second spot.

Bright continued to work his way through the field and was up to seventh on lap 11 and made it to sixth on lap 13.

Buckwalter and Smith pulled away from the field as they hit lapped traffic on lap 14. Smith closed the gap and worked on Buckwalter for the lead. Kunsman battled Jackson for third but couldn’t find a way around him for the position.

Buckwalter held onto the lead by a car length for the win. Smith crossed the line second. Jackson finished third. Kunsman was fourth and Drevicki rounded out the top five.

Dewease Wins 94th In Williams Grove Outlaws Tune Up, Forsythe Wins 358 Sprint Opener

5/10/19

Mechanicsburg – Lance Dewease assailed the field on Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway to record the World of Outlaws Tune Up event for sprint cars, worth $4,180 to win. It was the first race at the track since late March thanks to continuous rainouts.

The 358 sprints made their season debut at the track on Friday night and Glenndon Forsythe picked up the victory worth $1,500.

A rain delay of more than an hour hampered the event but it also made for scorching speeds as the night wore on.

Dewease started fourth in the 25-lap sprint car field but fell back a spot on the first lap thanks to Robbie Kendall.

Meanwhile polesitter Chad Trout streaked away with the lead over Anthony Macri and Freddie Rahmer.

However Rahmer was racing wounded thanks to a missing inside front wing panel stemming from an opening lap mishap on the initial start that also would end up claiming Danny Dietrich.

The only caution flag of the race unfurled for Dietrich on the third lap thanks to a collapsed front end, likely due to the initial start mishap.

Rahmer began slipping as the laps strung together and Dewease was able to get around him for fourth on the seventh tour before taking third with nine away.

But the pace was quick on the soft, moistened clay and it took all that Dewease had to run down the front duo of Macri and Trout.

But steadily, he honed in on Macri for the second spot and using surges of speed at the end of the backstretch to blast across turns three and four, he overtook Macri with seven to go before going to work on Macri.

Upon taking second spot, Dewease trailed the leader by 1.5 seconds and it would take him another five laps to catch Trout and get command before then pulling out to a 1.2 second victory.

Track conditions forced Dewease to use all the muscle in his car and in the cockpit to get the victory as he stated in victory lane, seemingly worn thin from the grueling speed just endured.

The win was the 94th of his illustrious career at the Williams Grove oval.

Trout rode home second followed by Macri, Kendall and Rahmer.

Sixth through 10th went to Lucas Wolfe, Brian Montieth, Cory Haas, Rick Lafferty and TJ Stutts.

Heats went to Dewease and Dietrich with the dash going to Trout.

Dewease set fast time with a lap of 16.634 seconds.

Forsythe wired the field for the 20-lap win in the 358 sprint feature checkers.

He raced ahead of Matt Findley the entire way but while holding a healthy lead most of the race, his advantage slipped away during the final five laps as his mount struggled to get off of the corners with speed.

Troy Wagaman Jr. rode home third followed by Doug Hammaker and Kevin Nouse.

Sixth through 10th went to Rodney Westhafer, Jeff Halligan, Rich Eichelberger, Kyle Denmyer and Todd Rittenhouse Jr.

Heats went to Denmyer and Westhafer.

Abbottstown, PA (May 4, 2019) – After pushing the start time up two hours to 5:30PM on Saturday to try and avoid what Mother Nature had coming, the rain came earlier than expected and forced the postponement of both the 410 Sprint and 358 Sprint features.

Before the rain came the 410 Sprint heats were won by Robbie Kendall, Cole Young and Scott Fisher.

Steve Owings, Jeff Halligan and Tyler Walton won the 358 Sprint heat races.

Horan Capitalizes on Powell’s Late Race Misfortune for Extreme Stock Victory

Travis Horan started fifth in the 20-lap Extreme Stock feature on Saturday night. Horan was up to third from his fifth starting spot by lap 3. Lap 3 also saw Bill Powell take the lead by a nose at the flag stand from Donnie Broderick.

Broderick shared the front row of the feature with pole-sitter, Alex Updegraff. Broderick got out to the early lead as Powell and Horan started to make their way through the field. Powell nearly had Michael Smith beat to the line for third on the first lap after starting sixth but settled for fourth. Powell got by Smith for second on the next lap and got around Broderick for the lead on lap 3.

With Powell in the lead, Horan started to go to work on Broderick for second. Horan took the spot from Broderick on lap 5. Smith and Broderick went to battle for third with Smith getting loose out of turn 4 on lap 11. Smith got spun around on the front stretch bringing out the caution.

Powell lead the field to the cone on the restart with nine laps to go. Horan tried the bottom of turns 3 and 4 but couldn’t steal the lead from Powell. Don Murphy fell off the pace with a flat tire that left debris on the track bringing out the caution.

There were some great battles for position throughout the field. Andrew Hogue was up to fourth on the restart and was working on Broderick down the backstretch for third. Updegraff entered the picture and got under Hogue for fourth on lap 13. Two laps latter Updegraff got under Broderick for third in turns 1 and 2.

Powell and Horan had separated from the rest of the field when a smoking Powell pulled into the infield on lap 17. Horan inherited the lead and held onto it until the checkered flag dropped. Updegraff held onto second. Broderick crossed the line third. Hogue beat Smith to the stand by inches to finish fourth. Smith rounded out the top five.

RAINS HALT MAY 3 WILLIAMS GROVE ASCS/URC BATTLE AT THE GROVES

5/3/19 - Holding out hope that the forecast would change, Williams Grove Speedway and ASCS officials held out on making a decision regarding the May 3 racing program until after 3 pm Friday afternoon, at which time the joint decision to pull the plug on the ASCS/URC Battle At The Groves event was made.

With the area forecast predicting heavy storms and the chance for rain at over 70% beginning at 6 pm through the midnight hour along with a severe thunderstorm watch being issued for surrounding counties, officials made the call in an effort to prevent any undue hardship on teams and fans that may have traveled to the show only to face rain upon arriving.

Numerous teams contacted the oval expressing unease over a decision to race in the face of the seeming imminent evening rains.

Thus, Williams Grove Speedway now shifts its focus to next Friday, May 10 when Brooks PowerSports will present a World of Outlaws Tune Up event at 8 pm featuring the 410 sprints and the 358 sprint cars.

Gates will open at 6 pm.

The 410 sprints will be tuning up for the following weekend’s invasion by the traveling NOS Energy Drink World of Outlaws Sprint Cars Series. The 358 sprints will be making their season debut.

 

Port Royal Moves to 7pm Start Time for 3 Division Show and Grit House Rt. 35 Challenge Series Opener

PORT ROYAL, Pa- Coming off a big weekend that featured three separate Open Wheel divisions and 3 new winners, Port Royal Speedway returns to racing May 4 with a jam-packed schedule. This will serve as the first race of the season where racxing begins at it’s summer hours of 7 pm.

Logan Wagner Picks Up First Win of 2019 and Extends Points Lead

Ryan Smith and Nick Sweigart Claim 360 and 305 features during Open Wheel Madness Night

By Justin Snyder

 

 PORT ROYAL, PA- Logan Wagner has been fast all season. Week in and week out, the defending Port Royal Speedway track champion has barged through the field from mid-pack. If he hasn’t been the hard charger, he's been extremely close.

 

 And fans have grown accustomed to his driving style of running the extreme high-line of the speedway in the turns. It's exciting, but it’s not always the fastest way around the track.

 

 Showing personal growth and determination, Wagner used the bottom of the track to fend off Lucas Wolfe and his father Mike Wagner to pick up his first Weikert's Livestock 410 Sprint Car victory of 2019 and his fourth Port Royal victory of his career.

 

 "Man this Zemco team is something else. When we're fast, man are we ever fast. And it’s sometimes hard to really know how fast you are when you’re out front," said Wagner, who won $4000 for his efforts. "I knew if we could just protect the bottom we'd be pretty good once we got the lead and I'm extremely happy to be in victory lane."

 

 It was a Wagner family reunion on the front row as both Logan and Mike lead the field to the green thanks to earning the most points via a dual heat format that rewarded drivers for finishing order and with passing points.

 

 And as the green flag dropped, it was the elder Wagner jumping out to the early lead after making his car stick on the bottom in turns 1 and 2 and pulling ahead down the backstretch to lead lap 1 over his son. Meanwhile, Lucas Wolfe was able to pull to the inside of Blane Heimbach to take the third positon just after crossing the start finish line.

 

 Two laps later, Logan made his first move for the lead as he slid under his father in turns 3 and 4, only for Mike to cross back under the slide-job attempt and continue to lead the field. On lap 5, Logan would make what ultimately turned out to be the winning move as he regrouped and slid under Mike for the lead on lap 5 in turns 1 and 2, this time making it stick and cutting off the momentum of his father down the backstretch.

 

 "It's always something special when you get to race against your family and leading the field to the green was a unique experience I'll cherish," said Wagner. "But we're both out there to win races and he was giving me everything he had."

 

 "My dad probably races me harder then anyone else out there, so I knew it wasn't going to be easy. We exchanged slide jobs there a couple times and I just had to be patient and I knew eventually we'd get it."

 

 Two laps later, Wolfe would use the top of turns and 3 and 4 to pick up momentum and power under Mike Wagner for second heading into turn 1 just after the flag stand. This put Wolfe within striking distance of the leader.

 

 As Wagner approached lap traffic on lap 9, Wolfe was less then .5 seconds behind him. However, as Wagner began picking off lap cars on the high side of the speedway, Wolfe was left to bide his time and hope for a mistake as Wagner began to stretch his lead.

 

 Though the large lead was short lived. Six laps later, Justin Whittal spun out in turn 2, bringing the leaders back together during the only caution of the 25 lap feature.

 

 With his lead gone and a pair of savvy veterans on his tail tank, Wagner knew it was time to make a change and do something different to protect his position.

 

 Coming back to the green flag, Wagner sped into turn 1, this time using the bottom of the speedway. The move worked as over the next few laps Wagner stretched his lead to nearly 2.0 seconds

 

 "That caution happened and up to that point we'd been running the high side most of the race and I knew if I was going to hold off Lucas and my dad, I was going to have to adjust," said Wagner of the lap 15 restart. "Those guys have way too much experience and way too much knowledge to just give them the bottom of the speedway on a restart."

 

 "So I drove it in there low and let the car do it’s job and just tried to be smooth and I figured that be enough."

 

 As Wagner checked out, the race was heating up behind him. While Wolfe and the elder Wagner remained steady in their positions, Ryan Smith, Heimbach and last week's winner Danny Dietrich were exchanging lines, with Dietrich ultimately splitting the two down the front stretch on lap 17 to claim the fourth spot.

 

 But nobody had anything for Wagner. He'd hit lap traffic again on lap 21, however Wolfe would never mount a serious attempt. Coming to the checkered flag, Wagner would win by a margin of .759 over Wolfe, Mike Wagner, Dietrich and Smith.

He also extended his point lead at the track as he looks to win back-to-bavk championships.

 

 Heimbach, Dylan Cisney, Ryan Taylor, Steve Buckwalter and Jared Esh would round out the top 10.

 

 In victory lane Wagner would climb to the top of his wing and celebrate with a beer in honor of a family friend that passed away last week.

 

 "It's hard to talk about it, but that whole deal on the wing was for him," said an emotional Wagner in reference to his friend Glenn Winnick. "Glenn lived his days harder then anyone I know and lost his life last week."

 

 "I really wanted to win it for him last week, but he was riding along with me here tonight and it’s just a really special win."

 

 For Wolfe, it was a good run, but he needed to be able to get to the front quicker and was happy with the second place finish.

 

 "I just didn’t get to the front quick enough. Mike and Logan were racing and if I could've gotten closer, maybe I’d had the chance to sneak by," said Wolfe. "It was going to be incredibly difficult to overtake a good car in open track when he got the restart. Ultimately we had a reasonable result and congratulations to them."

 

 Feature Finish, 25 Laps: 1. Logan Wagner; 2. Lucas Wolfe; 3. Mike Wagner; 4. Danny Dietrich; 5. Ryan Smith; 6. Blane Heimbach; 7. Dylan Cisney; 8. Ryan Taylor; 9. Steve Buckwalter; 10.

 URC 360 Sprints

 

 When Ryan Smith climbed out his car following the 25 lap Capital Renegade United Racing Club feature 360 Sprint Car event, he let out a sigh of relief.

 

 Following in the footsteps of the legendary Greg Hodnett driving for Mike Heffner, a big new sponsor in Red Robin Gourmet Burgers and a legion of fans clamoring for a victory, you could say that expectations have been high ever since this pairing was announced in January.

 

 And finally after multiple podium finishes at various tracks and a lot of consistancy, Smith picked up his first win of the season over Lucas Wolfe and Steve Buckwalter.

 

 "This means the world to our team," said Smith, of his $2,000 victory. "I've been trying really hard the last few weeks and was able to finally pull one off here."

 

 "I know Greg is watching and I hope he is proud. Hopefully this is the first of many wins for this team."

 

 But it didn’t come easy. Lucas Wolfe, fresh off a podium finish in the 410 Sprint Car feature, blasted to an early lead from his pole starting spot over Brian Carber. Meanwhile, Smith, who started 6th, used the top of the speedway to move into 4th in turns 1 and 2. In turns 3 and 4, he passed both Curt Michael and Carbwer to move into 2nd at the flagstand.

 

 Smith quickly set his sights on Wolfe, however as the leaders entered lap traffic on lap 7, Wolfe was able to extend his lead by over 1.0 seconds. Setting a rapid pace, Smith first looked to the bottom of Wolfe in turns 3 and 4 on lap 13, but could not make it stick and settled back in behind Wolfe.

 

 Like an animal stalking it's prey, Smith hit his marks and waited for the right opportunity. As Wolfe picked off lap cars, Smith patiently waited, following the Pabst Blue Ribbon car's every move.

 

 Meanwhile, Buckwalter moved into 3rd on lap 16. But this was a two-car race.

 

 Finally on lap 19, Wolfe got a little high in turns 1 and 2 and Smith dove to the bottom. This time it worked. Powering down the backstretch, he would never look back.

 

 "For a while there I got the wing too far back and just got too tight," said Smith. "Lap traffic was pretty tight, so I knew that's where I had to pounce on him."

 

 Smith would cruise to a 1.402 second margin of victory over Wolfe, Buckwalter, Austin Bishop and Josh Weller. Chad Layton, Michael, Adam Carberry, Ed Aiken and Derek Locke would round out the top 10.

 

 "Mike (Heffner) isn’t here tonight, but I'm grateful for the opportunity to drive this car,"
 said Smith in victory lane. "I know the guys from Red Robin are here and I;m sure they are pretty happy. Hopefully this is the firdst of many wins."

 

 For Wolfe, it was another bridesmaid finish on the night.

 

 "I got caught behind a few lapped cars and he was in the right place at the right time and ultimately they capitalized and that's why they're up there and we are here," said Wolfe. "Second isn’t bad, but you've just got to be better when you start up front. Hopefully we can do that next time out."

 

 360 Sprint Car Feature Finish, 25 Laps: 1. Ryan Smith; 2. Lucas Wolfe; 3. Steve Buckwalter; 4. Austin Bishop; 5. Josh Weller; 6. Chad Layton; 7. Curt Michael; 8. Adam Carberry; 9. Ed Aiken; 10. Derek Locke; 11. Jason Shultz; 12. Davie Franek; 13. Michael Walter II; 14. Todd Gracey; 15. Tyler Ross; 16. Bill Unglert; 17. Eddie Strada; 18. Steve Drevicki; 19. Tyler Denochick; 20. Ryan Stillwaggon; 21. Tyler Carter; 22. Ryan Quackenbush; 23. Tyler Brehm; 24. Brian Carber.

 305 Sprint Cars

 Charging from the 10th starting position, 'Nitro' Nick Sweigart picked up his first career Port Royal Speedway victory during the Penns Valley Meat Market PA Sprint Series/IMCA 305 Sprint Car feature over a hard charging Jonathan Jones and Jerami Hanson.

 "Two years now! This elusive first win has been killing me," said Sweigart in victory lane. "We been working so hard for this and I'm beyond happy to be up here in victory lane."

 Hanson and Colton Hoover lead the field to the green flag form the front row with Hanson jumping out to the early lead.

 By lap 5, Sweigart had maneuvered himself to the 3rd position using the high line of the speedway.

 Hoover made a move for the lead coming out of turn 2, only for Hanson to get back by him coming out of turn 4. However, two laps later Sweigart would blow by both cars on the high side to take the lead for good.

 A late caution on lap 14 bunched the cars up. Hanson tried to make a move on the bottom of turns 1 and 2 on the restart, however he had nothing for Sweigart.

 "I knew there was really nothing left on the bottom and if I just stayed u top and ripped the lip, nobody was going to have anything for us," said Sweigart.

 Jones, who started 9th made a late move into the 2nd position on the last lap, but Sweigart would go on to collect the $350 payday in dominating fashion.

 305 Sprint Car Feature Finish, 20 Laps: 1. Nick Sweigart; 2. Jonathan Jones; 3. Jaremi Hanson; 4. Zach Newlin; 5. Ryan Lynn; 6. Ken Duke Jr.; 7. Drew Ritchey; 8. Colton Hoover; 9. Kassidy Kreitz; 10. John Scarborough; 11. Devin Adams; 12. Cale Reigle; 13. Nathan Gramley; 14. Reed Thompson; 15. Scott Ellerman; 16. Robert Garvey; 17. Josh Dressler; 18. Doug Dodson; 19.

Wednesday, May 15, 2019 (7:30PM) World of Outlaws Gettysburg Clash

Abbottstown, PA (April 27, 2019) – Chase Dietz earned his fourth career 410 sprint car victory at Lincoln, his first for new car owner, Rick Lefever, on Saturday night.

Pole-sitter, Bradley Howard shared the front row with Trey Hivner with Dietz and Glenndon Forsythe making up row two.

Howard got out to the early lead with Dietz up to second on lap 1.

Freddie Rahmer started to work his way to the front of the field from his ninth starting spot. Rahmer was up to seventh by lap 2 and was running fifth on lap 3 when he went to work on Glenndon Forsythe for fourth. Rahmer got by Forsythe going down the backstretch on lap 5.

Forsythe then found himself caught between the Rahmer brothers with Freddie in fourth and Brandon right behind him running sixth.

While Forsythe was battling the Rahmers, Dietz was tracking down Howard for the lead. Dietz tried to get under Howard on lap 7 in turns 1 and 2 but couldn’t make the pass for the lead until turns 3 and 4.

Freddie passed Hivner for third and Howard for second on lap 10. As Dietz worked his way through lapped traffic Rahmer was chasing him down.

The caution flag came out on lap 14 for debris on the backstretch.

Dietz led Freddie, Howard, Brandon and Adam Wilt to the cone for the single file restart.

Freddie went to the bottom of the track on the start to try and take the lead. He tried again with a slide job on Dietz in turns 3 and 4 but Dietz held onto the lead, beating Freddie to the line by inches. While Freddie was battling for the lead, Brandon got around Howard for third.

The caution came out again on lap 17 for George Suprick who got turned around in turn 3.

Dietz once again led the field to the cone with Freddie in second. Rahmer got up on Dietz’s right rear going into turn 1 on the restart. Although he was able to save the car from flipping, he still ended up turned around, bringing out the caution.

This time Dietz had Brandon Rahmer behind him for the restart followed by Howard, Wilt and Anthony Macri.

Dietz and Rahmer both chose the bottom going into turn 1 on the restart. Wilt pulled a slide job on Rahmer in turns 3 and 4 for second. Brian Montieth was up to fourth on lap 18 from his fourteenth starting spot.

Montieth tried a slide job on Brandon for third on lap 21 but couldn’t make it stick. Dietz caught the tail end of the field with 1 lap to go but had created enough distance that lapped traffic wasn’t a factor.

Dietz beat Wilt to the checkered flag by 1.207 seconds. Brandon Rahmer held onto third. Montieth crossed the line fourth and Macri completed the top five.

410 Sprint Car heat winners were Bradley Howard, Trey Hivner and Chase Dietz.

Current 410 series point leader Kyle Moody came to a stop during his heat race forcing him to run the consy. Moody flipped in turn 2 during the consy, ending his night.

Cole Young was back at Lincoln two weeks after taking a spill down the front stretch. After issues with the car during his heat, Cole’s father, Niki Young got behind the wheel for the consy to try and help figure out what was wrong with the car. Niki started 21st in the feature and finished sixteenth.

Doug Hammaker Makes it Two Wins in 2019

Doug Hammaker won his second feature of 2019 and his seventh at the Speedway on Saturday night.

Zachary Allman started on the pole of the 20-lap feature with Kenny Kuhn to his outside. Mark Van Vorst and Brett Strickler made up row two.

Kuhn took the lead at the start with Allman and Strickler falling in line behind him. Hammaker was on the move early and was up to fourth on lap 1 from his eighth starting spot.

Hammaker made quick work of Strickler and Allman and was up to second on lap 2. Jeff Halligan was right behind him and was up to third from his tenth starting spot.

As Kuhn approached lapped traffic, he had a nearly 2 second lead. Hammaker reeled Kuhn in as he was trying to get around the first lapped car. It didn’t take long for Halligan to join in and make it a three-way battle for the lead.

Hammaker tried the top of turns 3 and 4 and took the lead coming out of turn 4 with two laps to go. Halligan got around Kuhn for second on the following lap.

Hammaker beat Halligan to the checkered flag by nearly a second. Kuhn held onto third. Troy Wagaman finished fourth and Brett Strickler rounded out the top five.

358 Sprint heats were won by Mark Van Vorst and Brett Strickler.

Wesley Bonebrake Goes Wire to Wire for 358 Late Model Victory

Wesley Bonebrake shared the front row with pole-sitter Joe Westerman. Bonebrake and Westerman raced side-by-side for the first lap with Bonebrake beating Westerman to the line by a nose.

Craig Wagaman was up to third on lap 3 and started to go to work on Westerman for second. Wagaman got him at the flag stand on the next lap to take second, but Westerman didn’t go away quietly. Contact was made coming out of turn 4 on the next lap as Westerman tried to bump Wagaman out of the way. Wagaman didn’t let that phase him and he held onto the position.

Troy Miller then went to work on Westerman for third. Westerman was able to create some distance between Miller.

Bonebrake started to work through lapped traffic on lap 8 and didn’t let it slow him down.

The caution flag came out on lap 15 for Bernie Beard after he got turned around coming out of turn 4.

Bonebrake led the field to the cone for the restart. Wagaman tried the outside but got too high and couldn’t make the pass for the lead. Shaun Miller got around Troy for fourth.

Wagaman was getting his nose next to Bonebrake going into turn 1 but couldn’t get the car to stick through the turns to make the pass.

Bonebrake beat Wagaman to the checkered flag by 2.173 seconds. Westerman held onto third. Shaun Miller crossed the line fourth with Troy Miller rounding out the top five.

358 late model heat winners were Tommy Slanker, Troy Miller and Bernie Beard.

Williams Grove Loses Month Of April With Friday Rains, Candy Giveaway Rescheduled For May 3

ASCS/URC Battle Of The Groves On Deck

4/26/19

As a result of afternoon rains that would not relent coupled with a tornado watch, Williams Grove Speedway has again been forced to cancel its Friday night racing program slated for April 26.

Track management was hopeful that the rains would pass in time to still allow for action on Friday night and made a great effort to keep the surface “raceable” but the amount of rain reached an intolerable level shortly after 4:30 pm.

The April 26 rain out means the track has now lost the entire moth of April to weather.

With hopes that May will bring more favorable conditions for racing, the oval expects to be in action next Friday night, May 3 when it hosts the ASCS/URC Battle At The Groves for 360 sprints, along with the 410 sprints, at 8 pm.

National stars on the 360 circuit will compete in the event, slated to be carried on MAV TV.

Originally slated for Easter weekend, May 3 will again find the oval hosting the Hoseheads Hoppers Giveaway At The Gate for kids.

Thanks to sprint car website Hoseheads.com, the first 200 kids ages 12 and under entering the speedway through the main grandstand admission gate will receive a FREE chocolate Easter bunny next week.

To help celebrate the belated Easter holiday, the Hoseheads.com giveaway will begin when gates open at 6 pm however from 6:30 to 7, sprint car drivers Ryan Smith and Cory Haas will be on hand to help hand out the chocolate while also meeting fans

Dietrich holds off Zearfoss on Late Restart to Claim First Port Royal Victory of the Season

Flinner, Hart and Mitch Pick up Late Model and Extreme Stock Victories

By Justin Snyder

PORT RYOAL, Pa- What a difference a one week makes? One week after Lance Dewease used a late restart to pass Danny Dietrich for the win during the Ollie's Bargain Outlets All Star Circuit of Champions visit to Port Royal Speedway, Dietrich held off multiple late restarts and fought off a nearly 2-hour rain delay earlier in the night to bring home his first Weikert's Livestock 410 Sprint Car Series victory of the season at 'The Speed Palace'.

"Man, I really wanted this one tonight. I wasn't going to let it get away this time on restarts," said Dieterich, from Gettysburg. "I had to hold them off twice. 3 to go I had to hold off (George) Hobaugh and 1 to go I knew Brock (Zearfoss) was going to throw me a slider there. Just really happy to be standing in victory lane tonight."

Hobaugh and Cory Haas led the field to the green, with Hobaugh jumping out to the early lead. Meanwhile, Dietrich was already in fourth place at the completion of the first lap using the high line from his 8th starting spot.

Zearfoss also began his trek to the front, moving into the 9th spot early and into the 8th spot by lap 4.

By lap 5, Hobaugh hit lap traffic and began to maneuver through the back end of the field with a lengthy lead over Haas and fourth starting Jared Esh. One lap later, Esh pulled into the infield with an issue handing 3rd place to Dietrich.

As Haas, Dietrich and rookie of the year contender Tyler Reeser attempted to track down Hobaugh, Zearfoss was continuing to move forward. He moved into 6th on lap 8 and then 5th on lap 9, using multiple lanes of the track to pass.

On lap 14, Dietrich and Reeser both pulled under Haas on the backstretch moving into 2nd and 3rd and they raced nose to tail towards Hobaugh. Two laps later, Zearfoss slid under Haas to move into 4th place as well.

On lap 17, Dietrich and Reeser had closed to within a car length of Hobaugh. Hobaugh slid the lap car of Jeff Miller in turn 1 and 2 and nearly made contact, allowing Dietrich and Reeser to pull right to the tail tank of Hobaugh coming down the backstretch.

Dietrich attempted a pull a slide job on the next circuit, only for Hobaugh to power off the top and regain the lead. However, the second time was the charm as Dietrich once again slid Hobaugh on lap 19 in turns 1 and 2, this time making it stick.

"Hats off to Hobaugh and his team for running such a good race and leading a bunch of laps," said Dietrich. "However I know this place a little better than him and I knew if I got there, I could use that to my advantage."

Two laps later, Reeser's night ended when he made contact with the outside wall in turn 2 and slowed to a stop with mechanical issues in turn 3, bringing out the first caution of the night.

Dietrich sped off once green flag racing returned with Zearfoss sliding under Hobaugh for 2nd with only 3 to go. However, it looked to be too little, too late for the Jonestown native to make a run at Dietrich.

But Mike Wagner blew a tire on the white flag lap and came to a stop on the front stretch just before the flag stand setting up a one-lap shootout for the victory.

When the green flag dropped, Zearfoss slid under Dietrich and attempted to make it stick coming out of turn 2, however Dietrich powered back under him going down the backstretch and ran through the middle of turns 3 and 4 to claim his 6th career Port Royal Speedway victoryand the $3600 payday by a margin of .364 seconds over Zearfoss, Steve Buckwalter, Hobaugh and Haas.

"Brock and his guys have been so fast all season and I knew he was going to try and slide me there," said Dietrich. "I just had to make it stick and hold my line and if we could do that I knew we'd get back by him."

Zearfoss knew he only had once chance and he'd have to be perfect to claim the victory, but ultimately was pleased with a podium finish.

"Man that car was fast tonight and my guys gave me a great car," said Zearfoss, who will be a regular with the All Star Tour in 2019. "I gave it everything I had, but ultimately we just needed a few more laps. We'll take a second and some momentum and apply it to the rest of our season."

Sixth place was AJ Flick, followed by new points leader Logan Wagner, Blane Heimbach, Dylan Cisney and Tj Stutts rounded out the top 10.

KISSINGER, MATTERN, MOSER & BRUNSON TAKE SATURDAY NIGHT VICTORIES
ON “GLASS-TOP-SMOOTH” SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY SURFACE

SELINSGROVE, Pa. -- An April storm cloud delayed the heats at the Selinsgrove Speedway Saturday night with a shower but all it did was make the fast, smooth track even faster.

Ryan Kissinger of Bloomsburg was the winner in the United Racing Club 25-lap 360 sprint car feature. Hayes Mattern of Beavertown won the 25-lap late model feature. Both earned $2,000 for their victories in the third racing event of the season at the track.

Pro stock point leader Brandon Moser of Middleburg was the season’s first repeat winner in the division’s 15-lap race, while Will Brunson of Middleburg picked up his first feature win of the year in the 12-lap roadrunner race.

The speedway will return to action at 6 p.m. on Sunday, April 28, with the Icon Legacy Custom Modular Homes Ray Tilley Classic for 410 sprint cars, Grit House Route 35 Super Late Model Challenge Series and roadrunners. Track gates will open at 4 p.m. The speedway will be dark Saturday, April 27.

Cody Keller and Ryan Kissinger shot past polesitter Kyle Reinhardt who faltered at the start in the 360 sprint car feature. The pair was followed by Chad Layton, Reinhardt and Adam Carberry.

The red flew on lap three when rookie Jake Hummel flipped in the third turn. Brian Nornhold, Todd Gracey and Troy Betts were also involved. All drivers were uninjured.

Carberry went around the outside to try an improve his position on the restart but spun bringing the yellow out.

Kissinger ducked under Keller, in turn three, on the restart and took over the lead. Two laps later Layton moved by Keller into the runnerup position.

As Kissinger sliced through traffic, Reinhardt, who had regained the third position drew to the rear of Layton’s racer. The pair danced through traffic as Kissinger drove away.

Kissinger, who races a Ford engine, had a decided power advantage and ran the rest of the distance untouched to defeat, Layton, Reinhardt, Keller and Josh Weller.

Sprint car heats were won by Weller, Reinhardt and Ed Aiken.

Hayes Mattern rocketed to the front of the late model feature and was followed by Donnie Schick, Jim Yoder, Bryan Bernheisel and Coleby Frye.

Through the middle part of the race, veterans Schick and Yoder were battling for second as the youngster Mattern drove away and hid.

By lap 14 Yoder got the better of Schick and raced to the second position while Randy Christine took over fourth.

In the final laps, Mattern had problems with lapped traffic and almost spun in turn one.
Mattern’s issues helped Yoder, who in the final laps was glued to Mattern’s rear bumper.

Mattern was able to hang on as he took the checkered flag by .84 seconds over Yoder, Schick Christine and Frye.

Late model heats went to Schick and Mattern.

Point leader Brandon Moser passed Shaun Lawton on the backstretch and went on to take the pro stock feature over Lawton, Kyle Bachman, John Schoch and Ray Rothfuss.

Moser and Rothfuss won the pro stock heats.

Will Brunson passed last week’s winner Jake Jones on the first lap of the roadrunner feature. They were followed by Terry Kramer, Tom Underwood and Jimmy Kessler.

Brunson who gave up the lead last week, late in the race drove the distance to the checkered flag over Jones, Kramer, Underwood and Kessler,

Darren Rice was the roadrunner heat winner.

Following the PA Speedweek format, Dewease started fourth in his heat. Heat winners and the quickest car in each heat from time trials each earned a spot in the redraw. Dewease drew the fourth starting spot, lining him up behind Adam Wilt, Dan Shetler and Chase Dietz for the start of the 33-lap feature.

Wilt got out to the lead over Shetler with Dewease moving up to third with a run on the bottom of turns 3 and 4 to get around Dietz.

Jim Siegel was up to fourth from his seventh starting spot by lap 3 with a good run coming out of turn 2.

Dewease went to the bottom of turns 3 and 4 on lap 4 to get under Shetler for second. Then it was time for Dewease to start chasing down Wilt. Dewease cut Wilt’s lead down by a half second on lap 5. With Wilt working his way through lapped traffic Dewease went for the lead in turns 3 and 4 on lap 7, taking the top spot and never looking back.

With Dewease pulling away from the field, Siegel got under Shetler for third on lap 8.

Dewease’s 1.787 second lead was erased when the caution came out on lap 10 for Anthony Macri and Brian Montieth. Macri and Montieth got together in turn 4. Last year’s Weldon Sterner Memorial winner, Montieth, rejoined the field. Macri’s team initially thought repairs could be made to the 39M, but his night ended in the pits.

The field lined up for a single-file restart with Dewease at the helm followed by Wilt, Siegel, Shetler and Ryan Smith. Smith moved up to fourth on the restart after getting around Shetler.

After falling back to tenth from his eighth starting spot, Freddie Rahmer was working his way through the field after the restart and was up to sixth on lap 14 just as Dewease started to work his way through lapped traffic.

Lapped traffic did not slow Dewease down as he had a 4 second lead over Wilt with 10 laps to go.

Siegel was working the bottom of the track to try and take second from Wilt while Smith was running the top of the track to try and pass Siegel for third. Siegel took second on lap 27 with a solid run coming off the bottom of turn 2.

Rahmer had moved into fifth on lap 21 and after moving into fourth on lap 29 he went to work on Wilt for third. Rahmer and Wilt drag raced to the flag stand for the position with two laps to go with Wilt holding off the charging Rahmer.

Dewease crossed the line a whopping 4.392 seconds ahead of Siegel to take home the $6,900 check and his second Weldon Sterner Memorial victory. Wilt held on to third with Rahmer finishing fourth. Ryan Smith completed the top five.

410 Sprint Car heat winners were Brian Montieth, Ryan Smith and Chase Dietz.

Jeff Halligan Earns Second Win of 2019

Jeff Halligan started in the middle of the field, 13th to be exact, and ended the night in victory lane.

Zachary Allman started on the pole with Kenny Kuhn in second. Allman was out to the lead when the green flag dropped with Kuhn, Travis Scott and Kyle Denmyer in tow.

The caution came out on lap 2 for Kyle Rohrbaugh who got turned around on the front stretch. Rohrbaugh rejoined the field.

Allman lead the field to the cone for the single file restart. Denmyer went to the bottom of turns 1 and 2 to try and take third from Scott. Scott held him off with Denmyer making another move for the position in turns 3 and 4. The battle for third coming out of turn 4 caused a nine-car pile up and brought out the red flag despite no cars flipping or landing on their side.

Six of the nine cars were able to rejoin the field. They were Dylan Norris, Troy Wagaman, David Holbrook, Dylan Orwig, Steve Kisamore and Tyler Walton. Denmyer, Scott and Cody Fletcher ended their nights in the pits.

With nine cars out of the way Halligan was up to fourth for the restart. Halligan was up to third coming out of turn 2 on the restart and was in second coming out of turn 4 giving him the chance to reel in the race leader, Allman.

While Halligan was working on Allman, Doug Hammaker worked his way into fifth on lap 7 from his eleventh starting spot.

The caution came out on lap 11 for Mark Van Vorst who got turned around in turn 1.

Allman lead the field to the cone for the single file restart with Halligan on his bumper. Halligan stayed with Allman going into turn 1 on the restart and couldn’t make the move for the lead. It didn’t take long though for Halligan to get around Allman, he made the move for the lead on the following lap. Halligan went to the top of turns 3 and 4 and drag raced Allman to the flag stand for the lead.

Once he was in front of the field Halligan started to pull away. Matt Findley worked his way up to third on lap 15 from his tenth starting spot.

Halligan hit lapped traffic with two laps to go and struggled to get by a lapped car due to a lack of brakes. Lucky for Halligan he had built up enough of a lead to hold off Allman and still beat him to the checkered flag by over a second. Findley held onto third. Hammaker worked his way up to fourth and Kenny Kuhn completed the top five.

358 Sprint heats were won by Zachary Allman, Kenny Kuhn and Zach Euculano.

Mason Chaney’s Patience Earns Him First Win of 2019

Mason Chaney started third behind pole-sitter Roscoe Clough and Bill Diehl.

Clough and Diehl drag raced for the lead at the start of the race with Diehl, a two-time feature winner in 2019, leading lap 1. Chaney made easy work of Clough for second and was all over Diehl for the lead.

The caution came out on lap 4 for Rick Hartwig in turn 3. Hartwig rejoined the field.

Chaney tried to get around Diehl on the outside of turns 1 and 2 on the restart but Diehl held onto the lead. Chaney was literally on Diehl’s bumper as they ran the same line around the track.

While Chaney was on Diehl’s bumper, Travis Perry had made his way to third on lap 7 and Jeremy Ott was running fourth on lap 8.

Chaney was still running with Diehl when the caution came out on lap 12 for fluid on the track. The red flag came out for the track crew to lay down quick-dry as the car had made at least two laps while dropping fluid.

Chaney made his move on the restart and took the lead from Diehl going down the backstretch.

Ott was up to third on the restart and got by Diehl for second on lap 14.

After falling back to fourth on the restart, Perry was back up to third with 5 laps to go.

Ott made one last effort to get by Chaney for the lead in turns 3 and 4 as they raced to the checkered flag, but Chaney beat him to the line by .225 seconds for the win. Perry held onto third. Travis McClelland finished fourth and Alex Schmiedel crossed the line fifth.

Central PA Legends heat winners were Jeremy Ott, Bill Diehl, Travis McClelland and Chris Transeau. The two Legends Consy races were won by Tim O’Sheehan and Austin Bellamere.

13TH ANNUAL USAC EASTERN STORM

IT ONLY HAPPENS ONE TIME A YEAR. . . . .

USAC AMSOIL SPRINT CAR NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP HEADS EAST, EASTERN STORM OPENS AT GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY WITH $10,000 TO WIN JESSE HOCKETT CLASSIC

For the thirteenth consecutive year, the USAC AMSOIL Non Wing Sprint Car National Championship returns East with stops at the Grandview Speedway, Bridgeport Speedway, BAPS Motor Speedway, Port Royal and Weedsport Speedway’s. The five race swing, in keeping with tradition will open with the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill signature event at the Grandview Speedway. The Tuesday night, June 11 show will boast the USAC $10,000 to win Jesse Hockett Classic joined by the 358 NASCAR Modifieds with racing getting underway at 7:30 PM. This year also marks the 30th Anniversary of the Thunder on the Hill Racing Series.

Wednesday night, June 12 the Bridgeport Speedway will present the USAC AMSOIL Non-Wing sprints in a double header with the 600 micros, Thursday night, June 13 the tour moves to the BAP’S Speedway joined by the 360 Sprints and Super Sportsman. Saturday night, June 15 the traveling non-wing racers invade the Port Royal Speedway before closing out the swing at the popular Weedsport Speedway in Weedsport, NY on Sunday night, June 16. Defending USAC Eastern Storm Champion Chris Windom is already planning that trip East. Brady Bacon, winner of the two previous Grandview events would like to make it three in a row and collect that $10,000 payday.

The USAC National Championship is rich in history with some of the greatest names in racing parking in the coveted USAC victory lane. Drivers like Tommy Hinnershitz, Johnny Thomson, A.J. Foyt, Roger McCluskey, Jim Hurtibise, Jud Larson, Johnny Rutherford, Bobby Unser, Eddie Sachs, Ronnie Shuman, Pancho Carter, Lee Osborne, Greg Weld, Lee Kunzman, Larry Dickson, Gary Bettenhausen, Bruce Walkup and Toby Tobias are just a few of the legends to compliment even a longer list of current day USAC racing stars.

USAC has four race dates in the books for 2019 with victories going to Chris Windom, Justin Grant and C.J. Leary at the Bubba Raceway Park in Ocala, FL. Brady Bacon took the win on April 12 at Bloomington in Bloomington, IN. There next stop is Eldora.

In the 2019 point battle, Kevin Thomas holds just a three point lead over Chase Stockon followed by Justin Grant, Tyler Courtney, Chris Windom, Brady Bacon and Robert Ballou.

The Berks County one-third mile high banked Grandview Speedway is just the perfect setting for a USAC National Non-Win Championship event. USAC time trials at Grandview are usually more exciting than the main divisions elsewhere, so don’t miss time trials. USAC first raced in Berks County at the Reading Fairgrounds in 1956 and it was Oley, PA driver Tommy Hinnershitz who won the first three USAC events on the Reading half-mile. The USAC/Berks County tradition continued until April 1979 when Paul Pitzer took the win at what would be the final USAC event in Berks County, following the closing of the Reading Fairgrounds.

Grandview Track Owner Bruce Rogers and Thunder on the Hills’ Bob Miller made several attempts to bring 410 non-wing sprint cars back to Berks County, even presenting CRA and SCRA events in the 1990’s . After many discussions, a deal was worked out and in June 2007, USAC made the trip to Grandview and it was Levi Jones who took the win in a historic USAC return to Berks County. Now in 2019, the Eastern Storm will mark its’ thirteenth tour to the East, opening on the famed “hill” of Grandview Speedway.

Start planning now for the 13th Annual Eastern Swing, Tuesday night, June 11 to Sunday night, June 16.

On June 11, the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car Series takes to the track for thJesse Hockett Classic, featuring a $10,000 payday that will help highlight the King of the non-wing jungle. ‘The Macho Man’ Brady Bacon proved he has mega powers at Grandview Speedway claiming the past two USAC victories – but anything can happen on the third-mile when there are $10,000 bucks up for grabs.

The PA Posse 410 sprint cars invade the Grandview Speedway on Tuesday, July 2 and they’ll be competing for $10,000 to win the twenty-fifth Grandview Speedway Pennsylvania Sprint Car Speed Week event. NASCAR Cup Series star Kyle Larson has put the PA Posse in their place for two consecutive seasons, but a strong field of local competitors plans to keep that cash on home turf. Look for local favorite Ryan Smith to hunt down and capture that first career Thunder victory wheeling the Mike Heffner sprint car in the new season.

The debut of the NOS Energy Drink USAC National Midgets takes place on Tuesday, July 30. For years fans have begged, bargained, and pleaded for the Midgets on the Bechtelsville high banks and there’s no better time than the 30th Anniversary season of Thunder on the Hill. Many of the same USAC Sprint Car stars will strap into midgets for this event like Brady Bacon and Kevin Thomas, Jr.

The 5th Annual Levan Machine Truck Equipment Thunder Cup event brings the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions to the one-third mile Grandview Speedway on Thursday, August 22. A highlight of the Thunder season, the All Star event will pay homage to the late Greg Hodnett, with a special memorial trophy.

The 358 Modifieds will co-headline all of the previously mentioned events, competing in 30 lap events for $3,000 to win and lucrative NASCAR points. Grandview’s premier weekly division always thrills the crowd with side-by-side action.

The NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series concludes on Saturday, October 22 with the House of Thunder Halloween Party featuring the 22nd running of the Modified Traffic Jam – where Big-Blocks battle Small-Blocks in the Mods at the Madhouse. Alongside the Modifieds, the Sportsman, and MASS Sprint Cars will also be in action.

Dewease Triumphs Again at Port Royal Against All Star Circuit of Champions, Yoder Wins Mason Dixon Late Models Feature Following Devin Hart DQ

By Justin Snyder

PORT ROYAL, Pa- Even the most dominant competitors in all of sports sometimes need a little luck. Whether it's a missed call on the football field, a ball that just isn’t dropping on the basketball court or injury/misfortune for others, it all plays into the final outcome.

However, it's how the veterans of the sports world react and how they capitalize on these breaks that makes the difference.

Following a lucky late-race caution with 2 laps to go, Lance Dewease found his groove and made the race-winning pass coming to the white flag over a dominant Danny Dietrich to claim the $6,000 Keith Kauffman Classic at Port Royal Speedway sanctioned by the Ollie's Bargain Outlet Circuit of Champions Presented by Mobil 1 April 13.

The win was Dewease's 111th career victory at the Port Royal Speedway and his 38th Career All Star triumph. Specifically Dewease has won 6 of the last 7 visits by the series to the speedway.

"I was happy when that caution came out because It meant we had a shot," said Dewease. "I had a line and I could run the middle for a couple laps, but the longer we ran, I couldn’t do it.

"I could run it up 1 and 2 and make gains, but after about 5-6 laps I couldn't keep up, so I just got in line and followed him. I was just saving tires and seeing what would happen in the end and we got a restart and here we are."

Dietrich and Anthony Macri would lead the field to the green and Dietrich would race out to the early lead. Meanwhile, Dewease, from his 6th starting position, was already into 4th on the backstretch of lap 2.

Logan Wagner, who started 13th, was also on the early move sliding into 9th by lap 6. By this time, Dietrich was closing in on lap traffic and Macri was on his bumper.

The two cars swapped the lead in turn 4, with Dietrich prevailing at the line on lap 8. Macri tried to pull ahead of Dietrich heading into turn 3 and the two cars made contact, sending Macri into the inside guardrail and rolling over lightly to bring out the red flag. Macri would walk away unharmed.

"I feel bad for Anthony, but with the mufflers on these things you can’t really hear anything out there and I definitely couldn't see him," said Dietrich, of the incident. "I'm lucky I didn't go for a ride myself honestly. My dad taught me at a young age, left fronts and rights rear don't go well together and in that position you're at the mercy of the guy in front of you and his right rear. I feel bad, but it's just kind of a learning moment and racing deal for him."

Dietrich once again led the field back to the green flag, however it was Dewease moving again. After he gained 3rd as a result of the accident, he slid under Dale Blaney for second in turn four and began to set his sights on Dietrich on lap 9.

Dietrich once again approached lap traffic at the halfway point and by lap 21, Dewease was nose to tail with Dietrich. For the next several laps, Dietrich hugged the bottom of the speedway while Dewease attempted to maneuver the middle of the track, unable to ever pull past the leader.

It looked like Dietrich was going to go non-stop, but Brock Zearfoss came to a stop on the front stretch with 2 laps to go with a flat right rear tire, setting up for a 2 lap dash to the checkers.

Dietrich led the field to the green flag for the final time and Dewease pounced, pulling along side the leader and turns 1 and 2. Coming down the backstretch, Dewease and Dietrich were side by side, as Dewease made the winning move to roar of the crowd coming to the white flag.

Dewease would pull away slightly and complete the final circuit to take his first checkered flag of 2019.

"Me and Danny were wheel to wheel. I got to him and I knew if I I could get ahead of him in the middle of the corner he wouldn't be able to get off the corner if I got that close," said Dewease. "It worked out. This is only our 2nd race together this year and I'm extremely happy to get a win."

For Dietrich, he felt his car was much better in traffic and that if they didn't get that late caution, he had the race won.

"That last caution really killed us and I didn’t want to see that. We had a really great car out in traffic and I knew once that happened we were kind of a sitting duck," said Dietrich, of Gettysburg, Pa. "I knew he was going to go pretty much wherever we didn't and I just got to give my hats off to them. They were better in open air and anytime you lose to that team you can’t be too upset because they are one of the best in the country for a reason."

Wagner finished third, followed by Aaron Reutzel, Blaney, Lucas Wolfe, Ryan Smith, Dylan Cisney, Freddie Rahmer and Steve Buckwalter rounding out the top 10.

Spencer Bayston, who took a provisional to start the race and started 27th, was the hard charger after gaining 16 positions to finish 12th.

Feature Finish, 30 Laps: 1. Lance Dewease; 2. Danny Dietrich; 3. Logan Wagner; 4. Aaron Reutzel; 5. Dale Blaney; 6. Lucas Wolfe; 7. Ryan Smith; 8. Dylan Cisney; 9. Freddie Rahmer; 10.

SHULTZ, RINE, BACHMAN & JONES TAKE WEEK TWO WINS AT SELINSGROVE

SELINSGROVE, Pa. -- Third starting Jason Shultz of Carlise took the lead on lap four and won his first 360 sprint car race of the season and 19th career in Saturday night’s 25-lap main event at Selinsgrove Speedway.

Jeff Rine of Danville was victorious for the 109th time in his career at the track in the 25-lap super late model feature.

Shultz and Rine collected $2,000 for their victories in the second week of action this season at the speedway.

Defending pro stock champion Kyle Bachman of Selinsgrove won the 15-lap pro stock race. It was his 51st win in the division and his 62nd win overall at the track

Jake Jones of Hunlock Creek added his name to drivers that have won on the 1/5th mile Selinsgrove Raceway Park inner oval and on the big half mile picking up the 12-lap roadrunner race with a last lap pass.

Selinsgrove Speedway returns to racing action at 6 p.m. Saturday April 20, with another four division show featuring the United Racing Club/Keller’s Auto body 360 sprint cars, Jeff’s Auto Body & Recycling super later models and the A&A Auto Stores pro stocks and roadrunners. Track gates open at 4 p.m.

Ryan Kissinger flew around the top of the racetrack to take the sprint car lead. Jason Shultz grabbed second from the second row and they were followed by Jimmy Stitzel, Colby Womer and Derek Locke in the early laps.

Ryan Stillwaggon spun in turn three bringing out the yellow flag on lap three.

Shultz dove under Kissinger for the lead but Kissinger horsepowered his way back to the front down the back stretch. Going into turn one on the following lap Schultz made the same move but was able to hold of Kissinger for the top spot.

“I was really uncomfortable on the restart and was just hanging on.” Schultz said. “It was a little better once I got out front but Ryan (Kissinger) was really pressing.”

Lap eight saw Colby Womer slow on the speedway, bringing out the caution again.

Shultz and Kissinger raced the next lap side by side but Stitzel spun in the second turn again slowing the field. The restarts allowed Chad Layton and last week’s winner Kyle Reinhardt to enter the top five.

Derek Locke found some speed on the restart and on lap 10 took over the runner up position.

By the midway point, Shultz held a second and a half lead while the battle was on for second between Kissinger, Locke and Layton when Locke and Layton got together and spun on the front stretch. With the two front runners going to the rear, Davie Franek and Adam Carberry slid into third and fourth. Reinhardt and Cody Keller quickly got by Carberry for fourth and fifth.

Franek pressured Kissinger and got by him for second on lap 21 but was not able to challenge the high flying Schultz who won by 2.86 seconds over Franek, Kissinger, Keller and Carberry.

Sprint car heats went to Colby Womer and Adam Carberry.

Dan Snyder took the late model feature lead from the outside pole and was followed by Jeff Rine, Jim Yoder, Shawn Jones and Kenny Trevitz

Jim Yoder brought out the caution when he rolled to a stop on the third lap.

Rine flew around the top of turns one and two to take the lead on the restart.

Chris Casner, Brett Schadel, Meade Hahn and Austin Berry tangled in turn two to bring out the yellow flag on lap six. Hahn, Schadel and Casner were able to rejoin the field.

Rine again took off but last week’s winner Coleby Frye was soon in third right on Snyder’s tail. Frye grabbed second coming off the fourth turn on the high side.

Cody Lyter stopped on the track wiping out a 3.9 second lead for Rine and put Frye right on his rear bumper.

Rine slid high in turn three allowing Frye to get inside him. Frye slid up and got into Rine but the pair continued down the front stretch.

“Whew!” Rine exclaimed. “That was some tough racing. It was rough in the turn and Coleby got under me. That was tough.”

Dan Green’s car quit in the third turn on lap 21 setting up yet another Rine, Frye restart that didn’t happen as six cars piled up in the second turn blocking the track, bringing out the red flag. No drivers were injured.

Another three car incident on the restart kept the field under caution.

Snyder cooled his tires under caution and got back by Frye for second but never challenged for the lead

Rine ran the rest of the distance out front winning by 3.7 seconds over Snyder, Jones, Trevitz and Schadel.

Late model heats were won by Jim Yoder, Dan Snyder and Dave Stamm.

Kyle Bachman grabbed the pro stock lead from the pole and then just about spun in the third turn. Bachman held on but it allowed last week’s winner Brandon Moser to take second from Shaun Lawton, Corey Long and John Schoch.

Late in the race Moser drew to the back of Bachman when the caution came out for Lori Croop on lap 13, setting up a green, white, checkered finish.

Bachman ran the rest of the distance with Moser and Lawton on his tail but held on for the win, by .452 seconds over Moser, Lawton, Long and Schoch.

The pro stock heat was won by Kyle Bachman

Will Brunson took the roadrunner lead followed by Jake Jones, Curtis Lawton, Brian Mabus and Terry Kramer.

Jones pressured Brunson and took the lead on lap three. Brunson stayed right on his tail as the pair raced away from the field.

Brunson got back in front on lap nine when Jones slid high in the second turn. Coming off the last turn Brunson slid high and Jones regained the lead for the win. Lawton, Kramer and Mabus rounded out the top five.

The roadrunner heats were won by Jake Jones and Will Brunson

Saturday, May 4, 2019 (7:30PM) 410 Sprints + 358 Sprints + Extreme Stocks (York Flooring Kids Big Wheel Races and York County Racing Club Night)

Abbottstown, PA (April 13, 2019) – Alan Krimes ended a two-year drought from victory lane earlier this year. On Saturday Krimes was back in victory lane, this time after a much shorter hiatus, to earn his 20th career win at Lincoln Speedway.

For the second week in a row Cole Young started on the front row of the feature, but this week it was the pole. Brett Michalski shared the front row with Young.

Young went to the top of the track at the start which let Michalski get his nose under Young going into turns 1 and 2. Michalski was about to lead lap 1 when the caution came out for Chad Trout who got turned around in turns 3 and 4. The caution set the field up for a complete restart.

Michalski got his nose under Young again on the restart but this time Young got a good run coming out of turn 2 to give him the edge over Michalski going down the back stretch to lead lap 1.

Chase Dietz, Brent Shearer and Krimes were waging a three-way battle for third place. Dietz emerged the victor and started to work on Michalski for second. It didn’t take long for Krimes to join in and once he did, he made quick work of Dietz and Michalski in two laps to take second.

While Krimes was working his way through the front of the field Adam Wilt was doing the same and had just moved into fourth when the red flag came out on lap 11. The race leader, Young, hit the front stretch wall and flipped ending his night.

Krimes inherited the lead and led Dietz, Wilt, Michalski and Brian Montieth to the cone for the single file restart.

Monteith, true to his nick name “The Edge” went to the top of the track in turns 1 and 2 on the restart and got around Michalski for fourth.

Wilt got under Dietz in 1 and 2 for second and they stayed side by side with Wilt edging Dietz at the flag stand by half a car length for the position on lap 14.

With Krimes approaching lapped traffic, Wilt was able to close the gap between him and the leader. Once the leaders were in lapped traffic Wilt was able to keep pace with Krimes. Wilt gave it one last shot trying the bottom in turns 1 and 2 but he couldn’t catch Krimes.

Krimes beat Wilt to the checkered flag by .772 seconds. Montieth held onto third. Dietz finished fourth and Michalski completed the top five.

Doug Hammaker finds Victory Lane for First Time in 2019

Kenny Kuhn started on the pole of the 20-lap feature with Austin Treuchet on the outside of row 1. Both Kuhn and Treuchet were chasing their first career win at Lincoln Speedway. Seventh-place starter, Doug Hammaker, was chasing his 10th career win at the track.

Kuhn got out to the lead on the start but there was contact throughout the field which resulted in Tyler Walton coming to a stop on the front stretch, bringing out the caution.

The field lined up for a complete restart with Kuhn getting out to the lead once again. This time Treuchet was on his bumper trying to take the lead.

While Kuhn and Treuchet were battling for the lead, Hammaker started to make his way through the field. By lap 4 Hammaker was up to fourth. Hammaker then went to work on Alyson Dietz for third. Hammaker tried to the outside of Dietz in turns 1 and 2 but both drivers were running the same line coming out of turn 2. Hammaker got under Dietz going into turn 3 and had the position as they came out of turn 3.

Once he was settled into third, Hammaker started to reel in the leaders. The caution came out on lap 9 for Brett Strickler who got turned around in turn 2.

The leaders came to the restart cone nose to tail with Hammaker all over Treuchet. Hammaker pulled off a slide job in turns 1 and 2 for second when the caution came out again on lap 10 for DJ Montgomery when he got turned around in turn 4. Montgomery rejoined the field.

Kuhn got a great jump on the field at the cone. Hammaker went to the outside of Treuchet in turns 1 and 2 to take second.

Hammaker tried the outside of turns 1 and 2 to get around Kuhn but couldn’t take the spot. The red flag came out on lap 15 for Wyatt Hinkle who flipped in turns 1 and 2. Zach Allman was also involved.

With five laps to go the field lined up for a single file restart. Hammaker went to the high side of the track going into turn 1 on the restart and had the lead over Kuhn coming out of turn 4.

While Hammaker was taking the lead, Dietz was battling Treuchet for third and Jeff Halligan and Tyler Ross were racing hard for fifth.

The white and yellow flags came out at the same time when Troy Wagaman Jr. got turned around in turn 4, leading to a green then checkered flag finish.

Hammaker held onto the lead on the final lap to earn his 10th career win at the speedway. Kuhn crossed the line second and Treuchet held onto third. Ross made a last lap pass for fourth and Dietz finished fifth.

358 Sprint heats were won by Tyler Walton, Chris Frank and Travis Scott.

Steve Drevicki goes wire to wire in USAC East Coast Season Opener

With their scheduled season opener at Williams Grove falling victim to Mother Nature, the USAC East Coast Sprint Cars started their 2019 season at Lincoln Speedway on Saturday.

Last year’s series champion, Steve Drevicki, started on the pole with Carmen Perigo to hisoutside.

Drevicki got out to the lead and never looked back though there was plenty of racing throughout the field behind him.

The caution flag came out on lap 1 for Matt Boland who got sideways in turn 2. Boland rejoined the field.

Drevicki led the field to the restart cone for a single-file restart. Three cars got together on lap 3 in turns 3 and 4 to bring out the caution. Mark Bitner, Ryan Quackenbush and Matt Boland were the cars involved.

Drevicki paced the field once again for the single-file restart with Perigo, Eric Jennings, Eddie Strada and Trey Hivner in tow.

Strada, Perigo and Jennings had a three-way battle second with Perigo holding onto the spot. Strada moved up to third on lap 7 and then went to work on Perigo for second. As Strada and Perigo battled for second Drevicki was pulling away from the rest of the field.

Strada got by Perigo for second on lap 10 by beating him to the flag stand by the nose of his car.

Lapped traffic didn’t slow Drevicki down and he beat Strada to the checkered flag by 6.328 seconds. Perigo crossed the line third, Chris Allen Jr. finished fourth and Chandler Leiby completed the top five.

USAC East Coast Wingless Sprint Cars heat winners were Chandler Leiby and Eric Jennings.
