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

By- Justin Snyder

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Matt Findley Wins and Cody Fletcher Claims Title

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Officials opened the red for fuel.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Port Royal Speedway

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

NOS Energy Drink Feature (30 Laps) – 1. 57-Kyle Larson [4][$15,000]; 2. 5-Brent Marks [8][$5,700]; 3. 69K-Lance Dewease [1][$3,500]; 4. 1S-Logan Schuchart [12][$3,000]; 5. 17-Sheldon Haudenschild [5][$2,600]; 6. 18-Gio Scelzi [3][$2,400]; 7. 3Z-Brock Zearfoss [10][$2,300]; 8. 49-Brad Sweet [6][$2,200]; 9. 2-Carson Macedo [7][$2,150]; 10. 1-Logan Wagner [13][$2,100]; 11. 15-Donny Schatz [16][$1,600]; 12. 72-Daryn Pittman [20][$1,350]; 13. 48-Danny Dietrich [21][$1,300]; 14. 2X-Dylan Cisney [11][$1,200]; 15. 9-James McFadden [22][$1,100]; 16. 21-Brian Brown [24][$1,000]; 17. 10X-Ryan Smith [19][$900]; 18. 1A-Jacob Allen [15][$850]; 19. 11-T.J.

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

By- Justin Snyder

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

However, the night belonged to Larson and his team.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Freddie Rahmer Is 2020 Track Champion

10/3/20

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

And again, Schatz followed suit.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Schuchart was third followed by Gravel and Sheldon Haudenschild.

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

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

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

Troy Wagaman won the D Main.

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

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

Lance Dewease was the hard charger in the feature event.

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

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

David Gravel Scores Night One Of Williams Grove National Open,

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

9/25/20

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Gravel commented on his strategy in the event.

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

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

Sixth through 10th went to Shane Stewart, Donny Schatz, Lance Dewease, James McFadden and Kerry Madsen.

Shane Stewart busted the 18-year old one lap track record in qualifying by turning a lap of 16.111 seconds over the field of 57 cars.

Heats went to Stewart, Reutzel, Gravel and Larson with Rahmer claiming the dash.

Brent Shearer won the non-qualifiers race with Wayne Johnson taking the D Main.

Kyle Moody won the C Main and Parker Price-Miller took the B Main.

Brad Sweet was the RV Four Wheel Drive and Performance Automotive Hard Charger.

Feature Finish, 10/2/20:

410 sprints, 25 laps: 1. David Gravel, 2. Kyle Larson, 3. Freddie Rahmer, 4. Aaron Reutzel, 5. Anthony Macri, 6. Shane Stewart, 7. Donny Schatz, 8. Lance Dewease, 9. James McFadden, 10. Kerry Madsen, 11. Brad Sweet, 12. Brent Marks, 13. Sheldon Haudenschild, 14. Gio Scelzi, 15. Brian Montieth, 16. Carson Macedo, 17. Logan Schuchart, 18. Danny Dietrich, 19. Cory Eliason, 20.

58th Annual Williams Grove Champion Racing Oil National Open Is This Week

Outlaws vs Posse $75,000 Match-Up Puts Focus Of Sprint Car World On Williams Grove October 2 & 3 As Contenders Gear Up Anticipated Contest!

9/27/20

Mechanicsburg – The biggest and richest sprint car race in the East and in the history of Williams Grove Speedway is at hand as the 58th annual Champion Racing Oil National Open looms this weekend at the Cumberland County oval.

Sanctioned by the World of Outalws Sprint Cars Series, the two-day affair on October 2 and 3 will put the eyes of the sprint car world on Williams Grove Speedway.

Slated for October 2, the National Open Preliminary will feature a 25-lap main paying $10,000 to the winner on Friday night.

Then on Saturday, October 3, the 2020 Champion Racing Oil National Open will again offer the biggest winner’s share ever in the history of the oval and in the East, at $75,000 for 40-laps of work.

Besting all other sprint car events this year, the widely acclaimed race will go down in history as the richest one-day event and biggest payday in sprint car racing across the nation, with Saturday’s A-Main total purse alone eclipsing $130,000!

The World of Outlaws drivers will enter the meet with Californian Brad Sweet atop the series point standings to go along with eight wins on the season.

But just 40 points back of Sweet is home state native Logan Schuchart of Hanover aboard his grandfather Bobby Allen’s No. 1S.

Schuchart has six wins this season and may be primed for his first ever Williams Grove Open win.

However lurking just behind Schuchart, third in series points although perhaps a bit off of his feed this year, is the winningest driver in National Open history, perennial WoO champion Donny Schatz who has taken the prestigious affair an unprecedented five times. .

A two-time Open winner, David Gravel has been strong this season on the outlaws tour and could also be a contender along with Oklahoma’s Daryn Pittman who has finished second on five occasions in the National Open.

Pittman is due for a win in the race and this year could do the trick now that he has reunited with former local car owner Mike Heffner who likewise is overdue for a victory in the historic spectacle.

Freddie Rahmer enters the final two races of the year in the Open as the Williams Grove point leader by 145 points over defending National Open winner Brent Marks.

Rahmer has never won the Open although his father Fred does own one win and could certainly guide his son to his first triumph.

One-time Open champion Danny Dietrich is currently third in points.

Local Lance Dewease, a four-time Open winner himself, could also be considered a favorite by the PA Posse faithful as he looks for his 100th career Williams Grove Speedway victory with the talents of former driver/car owner Don Kreitz Jr. and mechanic Davey Brown Sr. turning the wrenches.

The National Open will see the 2020 Williams Grove Speedway Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint car series champion crowned at the conclusion of Saturday’s Open.

Adult general admission for October 2 is set at $30 with youth ages 13 – 20 priced at $15. Adult admission for October 3 is $35 with youth priced at $20.

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

Both nights of action are slated to get underway at 7:30 pm.

58th Champion Racing Oil Williams Grove National Open Adds To History This Week With Record Breaking $75,000 Top Prize, Oct. 3 Winner’s Share Largest Sprint Car Payout In State, East And Nation In 2020

Another Chapter In Tremendous History Of Event To Be Written Saturday

9/27/20

Mechanicsburg – Sprint car fans in the East will assemble Saturday night to see the 58th running of the Williams Grove Speedway Champion Racing Oil National Open for sprint cars sanctioned by the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Cars Series, going 40-laps in distance and paying a gigantic $75,000 to the winner.

This year’s event will again be momentous, as the champion will pocket the biggest cash payday ever in the history of the oval and in the East, at $75,000.

And this season, the widely acclaimed event will go down in history as the richest one-day event and biggest payday in sprint car racing across the nation, with Saturday’s A-Main total purse alone eclipsing $130,000!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Schatz was again the winner in 2007.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Anthony Macri Wins $20,000 In 38th Running Of Selinsgrove Nace National Open

Garrett Bard gets 305 sprints to close season

9/26/20

Selinsgrove, Pa. – Anthony Macri of Dillsburg romped to the biggest win of his sprint car career on Saturday night at Selinsgrove Speedway, scoring $20,000 in the prestigious 38th annual Jim Nace Memorial National Open for 410 sprint cars.

The win was the second of the year for Macri at Selinsgrove Speedway aboard his No. 39 and his 10th overall of the season.

Macri started out the night by setting a new track record in qualifications, turning a lap of 15.544 seconds around the big half-mile, breaking the one-year old record of 15.694 set at last years event by Kerry Madsen.

In total, nine different drivers timed in under the old track record.

Macri then drew the pole for the 40-lap Nace National Open with Missouri’s Brian Brown lining up second.

When action began Brown beat Macri into the first turn but Macri swept around the outside to take control onto the backchute.

A blistering pace found the leader entering the backmarkers on just the fifth tour with Brown in tow and as he negotiated traffic, Brown was able to close a bit the leader’s advantage.

The first caution flag of the race appeared on lap 10 for a stopped Trenton Sheaffer, wiping out a 2.163 second lead built up by Macri.

Brown dove under Macri on the restart only to see Macri sweep around the top and again net control.

Macri again entered the rear of the field on lap 16 before the race was halted for a scheduled fuel stop at the halfway point, with Macri again ahead by 2.058 seconds before the stoppage.

Unfortunately, a rules infraction by Brown’s team under the scheduled stoppage would cost him the runner-up spot for the restart.

Brown was placed to the rear of the field for the return to action but instead he withdrew from the event.

This placed Freddie Rahmer on Macri’s tail for the restart but Macri got away when green replaced the yellow before again entering the rear of the field with 12 laps to go.

Rahmer tried to keep Macri close as they raced through traffic but to no avail and by the time a final caution flag appeared with just four laps to go, the leader had amassed a 3.994 second lead.

The yellow flag appeared for a stopped Brent Marks who was running fourth before blowing a tire.

Rahmer tried a low move into the first corner when action returned but Macri again got away, this time to take the win by 3.031 seconds during the final two miles.

Rahmer finished second in the race for the third year in a row aboard his father’s No. 51.

Sixth starter Dylan Cisney rode home a stout third followed by Lance Dewease and Brock Zearfoss.

Sixth through 10th went to Danny Dietrich, Brian Montieth, a rebounding Marks, Blane Heimbach and defending event champion Logan Wagner.

Montieth scored the Hard Charger award worth $400 after starting 13th in the field.

Heats went to Brown, TJ Stutts and Zearfoss with Steve Buckwalter scoring the last chance race.

Macri became the 20th different winner of the Selinsgrove Open in 38 years.

Garrett Bard would lead all 20 laps of the 305 sprint main to close out the night and the season at the track.

Bard blasted to the win from the pole although 10th starter Derek Hauck came to the front to challenge.

Hauck blasted across the bottom lane in the third and fourth turns as the pair headed to the checkers but instead he came up just shy by .312 seconds.

Ken Duke Jr. finished third in the race followed by Doug Dodson and Jaremi Hanson.

Sixth through 10th went to Dominic Melair, Mikell McGhee, Austin Grabey, Kassidy Kreitz and Cruz Kepner.

Austin Grabey was awarded Hard Charger laurels after advancing 16 spots in the field.

Heats went to Jared Zionkowski, Devin Adams, Dodson and Duke with the consolation going to McGhee.

The win was the third of the year by Bard at the Snyder County oval.

Selinsgrove Speedway will open the 2021 season with combined competition for modified stock cars on Saturday afternoon, March 20 before returning with an afternoon program featuring the 410 sprint cars one week later on Saturday, March 27.

Saturday, October 24 Monster Trucks promoted by Renegade Monster Truck Tour

Abbottstown, PA (September 26, 2020) – The final night of the 2020 Dirt Nationals featured the “Crowning of Champions” in each division. The Young Lions, Semi-Pro, Masters and Pro divisions all competed in 30-lap feature events to crown a champion.

First up was the Young Lions division which consists of drivers between the ages of 12-15 and is considered the most novice Legend Car division.

Daniel Adam, from North Carolina, and Florida-driver, Nikita Johnson made up the front row of the Young Lions feature event.

Adam and Johnson raced side by side into turn 1 with Johnson coming out of turn 2 with the lead. Tommie Quenzer, the national point leader in the division, settled into third as Adam stayed with Johnson to battle for the lead.

Johnson, Adam and Quenzer were pulling away from the rest of the field as Taylor

Adam was searching for a way around Johnson for the lead and got his nose under Johnson in turn 4 on lap 3 but couldn’t make the pass. The following lap he looked to the outside, again to no avail.

Johnson and Adam raced door to door down the back stretch on lap 5 with Johnson once again holding onto the lead.

Johnson’s teammate, Jaiden Reyna who had fallen back to seventh after starting fourth, made his way back to fourth on lap 8.

As Johnson and Adam pulled away from third place Quenzer, the battle for the lead didn’t cool down. Adam was still searching the track for a way around Johnson for the top spot.

The two leaders raced side by side down the front stretch on lap 11 with Adam finally making the pass for the lead coming out of turn 2.

Reyna was working on Quenzer for third at the halfway point of the race and made the pass coming out of turn 4.

Adam made contact with the wall on the backstretch on lap 15 allowing Johnson to take the lead back.

Reyna was reeling in Adam and Johnson and made it a three-car battle for the lead on lap 17. Adam and Reyna both got by Johnson in turn 4 on lap 18. Reyna took the lead at the line on lap 20. Adam continued to battle for the lead with Adam taking back the top spot on the following lap.

The first caution and only caution of the race came on lap 22 for Jonathan Robinson whose car was on fire.

Adam led Reyna, Johnson, Quenzer and Payton Jones to the cone for the single-file restart. Reyna got a great run to the cone nearly causing a pile-up, but he was able to pull back just in time to avert disaster.

Reyna got another great run down the back stretch and was on Adam' bumper. Adam got high in turn 4 allowing both Reyna and Johnson to get by.

Reyna beat his teammate, Johnson to the checkered flag by .267 seconds for the win. Adam crossed the line third and Quenzer finished fourth. Jones rounded out the top five.

Landon Lewis Edges Out Teammate in Photo Finish for Semi-Pro Championship

Teammates Billy Workman Jr. and Landon Lewis shared the front row of the Semi-Pro main event. The two raced side by side when the green flag dropped with Workman having the slight advantage into turn 1. Ohio-driver, Steven Partin, made it a three-way battle for the lead as Alex Robinson sat back and watched the battle in fourth.

Partin looked to the inside of Lewis to take second on lap 5. Lewis then got out of shape falling back to fifth.

The first caution came on lap 7 when Kevin Oliver got spun around in turn 4. It was Oliver’s second time racing on dirt in his career.

Workman led Partin, Robinson, Stephen Wurtzer and Lewis to the cone for the single-file restart. The yellow flag flew again on the restart when Oliver lost his hood. Despite the loss of his hood Oliver was permitted to keep running. Yet another caution came on the following restart when Cory Phillips stopped in turn 3.

On the next attempt to go green Lewis was racing door to door with Wurtzer for fourth and took the spot on lap 9.

Partin was all over Workman for the lead when the yellow came out on lap 10. Oliver continued to have issues with turn 4.

Joseph Sanoske had hit the cone on the previous restart sending him back two spots when the field lined up yet again.

Workman paced the field ahead of Partin, Robinson, Lewis and Wurtzer.

Lewis drove under Robinson for third on lap 11 as the race for the lead between Workman and Partin continued.

The leaders raced door to door at the line on lap 13 with Workman having the slight advantage.

The yellow flag flew on lap 14 for Joseph Sanoske who stopped in turn 4 after contact with Aaron Updegraff.

The top five for the restart were Workman, Partin, Lewis, Robinson and Jacob Owens.

The caution came again on the restart when Seth Kearchner, Owens, Josh Sanoske and Ryan Shabram piled up in turn 4. The four-car pile-up was a reaction to Partin getting sideways in turn 4. Partin kept the #51 moving keeping his second place spot for the restart.

Lewis was on Partin's bumper for second and Robinson and Wurtzer battled door to door for fourth.

Jorjie Sweger got by Wurtzer and moved into fourth down the back stretch on lap 16. Wurtzer wanted the spot back but the caution came out again on lap 17 before he could make the pass. The yellow was for Quinn Trimmer who spun out in turn 2. Parker Jones also came to a stop in turn 1.

Ron Little and Joseph Sanoske got together coming out of turn 4 on the restart bringing out another caution.

Nate Tretow entered the top five from his eighteenth starting spot, as Sweger and Lewis battled in front of him for third. Sweger fell back sending Tretow to work on her for the fourth spot.

Oliver brought out his third and final caution on lap 21 when he spun out in turn 2.

Workman led Partin, Lewis, Sweger and Tretow for the restart.

Sweger and Tretow were door to door again at the line. The two continued to battle down the back stretch. Contact was made sending Tretow for a wild ride into turn 3 bringing out the red flag lap 22.

Sweger was sent to the rear for the restart after officials reviewed the incident.

Chris Transeau restarted fifth behind Workman, Partin, Lewis and Wurtzer. Transeau started the race in twenty-second after qualifying through his consy.

Lewis stuck his nose under Partin in turn 1 for second on lap 26 but Partin held the spot. Later that lap Lewis edged Partin at the line for the runner-up position.

The final caution of the race came on lap 29 when Cody Atland and Tyler Garretson got together in turn 4.

The field lined up for a green, white, checkered finish behind Workman, Lewis, Partin Wurtzer and Transeau. Lewis looked to the inside of Workman on the restart and battled for the lead the entire white flag lap.

Lewis beat his teammate, Workman to the checkered flag by .001 seconds in an exciting photo finish. Partin held on to finish third and Wurtzer crossed the line fourth. Transeau completed the top five.

Joey Clanton Makes Triumphant Return with Masters Victory

The Masters division features drivers 40 years old. The Dirt Nationals grouped the Golden Masters, drivers over 50, with the Masters for the event.

After nearly three decades away from the wheel of a Legend Car, Joey Clanton lined up on the pole for the Masters feature event. Central PA Legend regular, Travis Perry, lined up second.

Perry stayed with Clanton into turn 1 and took the lead coming out of turn 2.

Clanton was left to hold of Scott Houdeshell who was challenging him for the runner-up spot.

The yellow flag flew on lap 3 when Scott Spidle, Dwyane Holder and Choya Young got together in turns 3 and 4.

Perry led Clanton, Houdeshell, Blaine Leppo and John Gutman for the single-file restart.

Clanton was able to get a nose under Perry coming out of the turns, but it wasn’t enough to make a move for the lead.

On lap 6 Clanton had enough momentum out of turn 2 to take the top spot. Perry stayed close and was on his bumper wanting the position back.

Clanton was pulling away from Perry and the field when the yellow came out on lap 13 for debris in turn 4.

The top five for the restart were Clanton, Perry, Houdeshell, Leppo and Joe Adam.

Adam got under Leppo down the back stretch but couldn’t make the pass. Perry continued to challenge Clanton for the lead.

Adam got by Leppo on lap 17 for fourth. The yellow flag flew again on lap 19 when Rob Blizzard got turned around in turns 3 and 4.

Clanton pulled away down the back stretch as Perry held off a charge from Houdeshell for second.

Top 4 were evenly spaced ahead of Leppo as he held off Gutman and Dawson in a three-car battle for fifth.

Perry used lapped traffic to take the lead back going into turn 3 on lap 25. A three-car battle for the lead between Perry, Clanton and Houdeshell was brewing when the caution came out on lap 27 for Joseph Plunkett in turn 4.

Perry was doing whatever he could to hold off Clanton, but Joey took the lead back at the line with one lap to go.

In the second photo finish of the night Clanton beat Perry to the checkered flag for the win. Houdeshell held on to finish third and Adam crossed the line fourth. Dawson rounded out the top five.

Central PA Legend Driver Jeremy Ott Best in Pro Division

Central Pennsylvania driver, Jeremey Ott shared the front row of the Pro feature with North Carolina-native, Jake Tretow.

Tretow took the lead going in to turn 1 but the caution came out before a lap was in the book for Chuck Dell and Nathan Skaggs who got together in turn 2.

The field lined up for a complete restart. Tretow shot out to the lead once again with Eddie Daniels into second and Ott running third.

Daniels got out of shape challenging Tretow for the lead allowing Ott to take second.

Casey Traxler brought out the yellow flag on lap 3 when he got spun around in turn 4.

Tretow paced the field ahead of Ott, Daniels, Joe Ryan Osborne and Christopher Clanton for the restart.

Daniels wanted second back form Ott on the restart, but he also had to hold off a determined Osborne behind him.

Ott was all over Tretow’s bumper with a good run out of turn 2 but it still wasn’t enough to make a pass for the lead.

Bill Diehl used the outside of turn 4 to get by Osborne for fourth. Clanton followed sending Osborne back to the sixth spot.

Tretow and Ott were still running bumper to bumper when the yellow flag came out on lap 14 for debris in turns 3 and 4.

Daniels lined up third for the restart but was soon black flagged for his rear bumper as it was dragging behind the car.

Tretow and Ott raced door to door on lap 18 with Ott on the inside and Tretow holding on to the lead.

Ott was still using the inside to his advantage and made the pass for the lead coming out of turn 4 on lap 22.

Tretow stayed close and was on Ott's bumper wanting the lead back when a caution came on lap 23. Daniels finally lost his bumper and was sent to the pits ending his night.

Ott led Tretow, Clanton, Diehl and Osborne to the cone for the single-file restart.

Tretow went to the inside of Ott in turns 1 and 2 to take the lead but Ott got him back at the line by a nose to maintain the top spot by .012 seconds.

Casey Traxler spun out in turn 4 bringing out the caution.

Tretow went to the inside once again but Ott held him off in the turns. Clanton entered the picture challenging Tretow for second.

The final caution came on lap 26 when Chuck Dell stopped in turn 3 after a billow of smoke came from the car.

Tretow tried the bottom again on the restart but Ott was able to pull away. Clanton got under Tretow in turns 1 and 2 for second and then got sideways in the final turn of the race collecting Steve Duderstadt.

Ott crossed the line 1.002 ahead of Osborne who made it through the turn 4 melee to finish second. Clanton crossed the line third and Diehl was fourth. Travis McClelland completed the top five.

Wyatt Hinkle Scores 358 Sprint Victory

With only two races for the 358 sprints left on the schedule, including Saturday night, only 65 points separated the top three in the standings, Todd Rittenhouse Jr., Brett Wanner and Cody Fletcher.

Cameron Burke and Jordan Strickler lined up on the front row of the 20-lap feature event. Strickler took the lead at the green flag with Travis Scott up to second from his fourth starting spot. The red flag came out before a lap was completed when Steven Kisamore got upside down after contact with Mason Chaney who got sideways going into turn 1.

As Scott slowed for the red in turn 3 pole-sitter Burke drove up over the tire of Scott and flipped into turn 3.

Chaney and Scott were both able to rejoin the field for the complete restart. Strickler and Jeff Paulson shared the front row for the restart with Wyatt Hinkle and Rittenhouse lined up behind them.

Abbottstown, PA (September 25, 2020) –

Garrett Bard Charges to 305 Victory

Garret Bard lined up fourth for the 20-lap feature on Friday night. Bard charged to the front early in the race to complete the sweep of the 305 feature events at Lincoln in 2020. Bard also won in the 305 sprint series’ visit to the track in July. Bard’s win on Friday was his eighth with the PASS series this year.

Ken Duke and Devin Adams shared the front row for the feature event with Dave Grubell and Bard lined up in row 2.

Duke led the field into turn 1 with Adams going to the high side to challenge Duke for the lead. Duke held the top spot while Bard moved his way to third.

Bard used the outside of turns 1 and 2 to get by Adams for the second spot.

The yellow flag flew on lap 2 for Dave Wickham and Andrew Boyer who got together at the end of the front stretch.

Duke led Bard, Adams, Grubell and Justin Mills to the cone for the restart.

Bard went to the top in turn 1 and Duke slid up in turn 2 to take away his line. Bard dove into turn 3 to take lead at the line right before the red came out on lap 3. Jake Frye jumped the cushion and got upside down in turns 3 and 4.

This time Bard paced the field ahead of Duke, Adams, Grubell and Mills for the restart.

Bard shot out to a commanding lead on the restart. Mills got by Grubell for fourth but Grubell took the spot back at the line on lap 4. The two continued to battle with Mills solidly taking the position on lap 5.

Bard used the high line around the track as he caught the tail end of the field with a 1.5 second lead.

Adams found some speed and was all over Duke for second. The two raced side by side into turn 3 on lap 10 with Adams having the slight advantage at the line.

Adams went to work tracking down Bard for the lead in lapped traffic. Adams closed the gap in lapped traffic with 5 laps to go.

Bard forced to the bottom as he worked through lapped traffic allowing Adams to gain some ground. Bard was able to put a lapped car between him and Adams to create some distance but Adams made quick work of it.

Adams made one last effort for the lead in turns 3 and 4 and raced with Bard to the checkered flag down the front stretch. Bard beat Adams to the line by .137 seconds. Duke finished third and Mills crossed the line fourth. Darek Hauck completed the top five.

305 Sprint heat races were won by Garrett Bard, Ken Duke Jr. and Jake Frye.

Freddie Rahmer Wins Third Of Williams Grove Season Friday,

Derek Locke Claims 358 Sprint Main And 2020 Track Title

9/25/20

Mechanicsburg – Freddie Rahmer won his third sprint car feature of the season at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night in the National Open Tune Up race and in doing so the Salfordville speedster expanded his lead in the season-long point standings with just two races to go in the season.

In the 358 sprint main, Derek Locke of Carlisle drove by point challenger Kevin Nouse to score the win and the track title in the division. The victory was also his third of the season at the track.

The 25-lap 410 sprint car main would go non-stop with Rahmer leading flag to flag.

On the opening lap with Rahmer at the helm, TJ Stutts, Anthony Macri and Robbie Kendall raced three-wide through the second corner for the second spot with Kendall coming away with the position.

Kendall would then chase Rahmer as he drew up on the rear of the field and by lap nine the leaders had traffic running directly in front of them.

The high line was the lane of choice on this night and Rahmer refused to drop off of the cushion to get around traffic.

This allowed the front four of Rahmer, Kendall, Macri and Stutts to bunch up and pull within half a straight away of each other while all the pilots waited for someone to pull the trigger and drop to the bottom lane.

Rahmer finally put himself into traffic on the 12th tour, bulling his way into the back of the pack and it was then that Kendall made his first bid for control although Rahmer was up to the task.

With 11 laps to go Rahmer made contact with the backmarker of Tim Glatfelter at the flagstand as he raced to stay at the front.

Moments later Lance Dewease slowed and pulled pitside while racing inside the top ten after also dropping out of the dash earlier in the night.

Kendall took a second stab at the lead, more contentious this time on the 17th tour when he dipped under Rahmer in the third and fourth turns only to come up short as Rahmer continued to refuse to forsake his cushion line around the oval.

After that Rahmer began to snake his way through the field and get away from Kendall as Anthony Macri and Brent Marks made moved in to overtake him.

In the end Rahmer took the win by 1.104 seconds over Macri, Marks, Kendall and Brian Montieth.

Sixth through 10th went to Stutts, Brian Brown, Matt Campbell, Danny Dietrich and Kyle Reinhardt.

With three laps to go, Stutts nearly spun on the turn two cushion but recovered while Danny Dietrich did spin to avoid direct contact before continuing on. At the time, both drivers were vying for a top-five finish.

Heats went to Rahmer, Dewease and Macri with Jeff Halligan scoring the consolation and Rahmer winning the dash to earn the pole for the main event.

Stutts set fast time with a lap of 16.629 seconds.

Kevin Nouse took the lead at the start of the 358 sprint main with the track title awaiting at the end of the 20-lap distance.

Derek Locke started the race in third and watched as Nouse took the lead when action began.

The red flag appeared with two laps recorded for a six-car pile up in the second turn.

When action resumed Locke lined up second and immediately went to work on Nouse for the lead.

He worked either side of the speedway with smooth precision to draw even with Nouse more than once before finally driving by with an outside move in the second turn on lap six.

Once at the front, Locke drove away to the third oval win of his career and of the season while also wrapping up the 2020 track title over Nouse.

Nouse was second in the race followed by Brett Wanner, Steve Owings and Alyson Dietz.

Heats went to Dietz, Nouse and Locke with the last chance race going to Scott Fisher.

410 sprints, 25 laps: 1. Freddie Rahmer, 2. Anthony Macri, 3. Brent Marks, 4. Robbie Kendall, 5. Brian Montieth, 6. TJ Stutts, 7. Brian Brown, 8. Matt Campbell, 9. Danny Dietrich, 10.

The Jim Nace Memorial National Open At Selinsgrove Speedway

Prestigious Oval Event Brings 37 Years Of History Into 38th Running Saturday

9/20/20

Selinsgrove, Pa – This Saturday’s 38th annual Icon Legacy Homes Jim Nace Memorial National Open at Selinsgrove Speedway will find the race entering its fifth different decade since beginning in 1983.

Along the way the prestigious Selinsgrove event has seen a total of 19 different drivers win the contest since the late Maynard Yingst of Linglestown swept the first three in a row in 1983, 1984 and in 1985.

But the now fall classic at Selinsgrove Speedway was originally a summer sizzler with the first four taking place in either June or July.

It wasn’t until 1987 when Ohio’s Dave Blaney got the win that the race was moved into the autumn of the year, taking place on October 3 before it settled into September in 1989 as Midwestern star Doug Wolfgang scored a 75-lap United Sprint Association sanctioned Open worth over $51,000.

The event domination of Fred Rahmer took center stage during the second half of the 1990s as the Salfordville speedster scored five of six races between 1995 and 2000.

In fact, to date no other driver has been as successful in the Selinsgrove Nationals as the retired Rahmer.

His closest pursuers on the all-time Open win list are the late Greg Hodnett and retiree Todd Shaffer, both of whom each counted four checkered flags in the race.

Following the untimely death of five-time Selinsgrove Speedway sprint car track titlist Jim Nace in 2009, the race format was expanded into two segments in 2010 and was now run as the Jim Nace Memorial National Open.

The race used the twin segment format for a total of three years before again becoming a single event in 2013.

Interestingly enough, Thompsontown’s Nace only ever recorded one top-five finish in the Open and never scored the big payday but his Selinsgrove record of five track titles and 46 super sprint car wins certainly cements him as the affair’s namesake.

The Jim Nace Memorial National Open was expanded financially in 2019 to post $20,000 to the winner of a 40-lap contest, billed as the biggest unsanctioned sprint car payday to be posted in the state of Pennsylvania and in the East.

Over the years the most successful drivers in the race that haven’t been able to score a win include four-time Open top-five finishers Paul Lotier and Crish Eash along with three-time top-fivers Randy Wolfe, Joey Borich, Sean Michael, TJ Stutts, Mark Smith and Brent Marks.

On the car owner side of the event, no entry has been driven to National Open victory more than the famed Hamilton Motorsports No. 77 machine, having made the victory lane trip some six times.

Keith Kauffman scored for owner Al Hamilton in 1988 with Lance Dewease taking the W in 2002 while Fred Rahmer sandwiched four wins in between.

Bob Stewart, proprietor of the No. 12 Apple Motorsports sprinter, owns four race triumphs with one belonging to Rahmer, two to Hodnett and one to Chad Layton in 2006.

Three time ownership winners have been Maynard Yingst, Gary and Patty Beam and Zane Highlands.

Saturday’s $20,000 to win 38th annual Jim Nace Memorial National Open gets underway at 7 pm. The race carries a raindate of Sunday, September 27 at 6 pm.

Saturday, October 17 (6:00pm) NIGHT OF CHAMPIONS for 410 Sprints + 358 Sprints [final point race of the season] [rain date of Sunday, October 16]

Abbottstown, PA (September 19, 2020) – Kyle Larson’s 39th win of the 2020 season came on Saturday night in the $20,000 to win Dirt Classic 7 at Lincoln Speedway. Larson added his name to the prestigious list of Dirt Classic champions that includes Stevie Smith, Lance Dewease, Tim Shaffer, and Brian Montieth.

The Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions 39th visit to Lincoln Speedway brought a solid field of 53-cars to vie for a spot in the $20,000 to win, $1,000 to start 40-lap feature.

Following the unique format of the Dirt Classic, that includes points for time trials and two rounds of heats, Kyle Larson lined up on the pole having the highest point total of the night. Rico Abreu was second and the lone member of the PA Posse in the top five was Anthony Macri who lined up third.

Larson held the lead going into turn 1 as he went to the bottom and Rico went high.

Brian Brown bobbled and fell off the pace and Brandon Rahmer pulled off the track, but the green flag stayed out.

Abreu got into the wall in turn 4 allowing Macri to get by for second on lap 2. Aaron Reutzel also capitalized on Abreu’s mishap getting by him to move into third.

Brent Marks used a slider in turn 2 to take fourth from Rico on lap 6.

As Larson approached lapped traffic on lap 10 the tail end of the field was battling three wide for position.

Reutzel was closing in on Macri for second as Marks held off a charge from his cousin, Brock Zearfoss for fourth. Zearfoss took the spot on lap 14.

Larson held a 2.326 second lead over Marci as they worked through lapped traffic at the half-way point.

The first caution of the race came on lap 25 for Danny Dietrich who got spun around in turn 4. While the yellow was still out, Tim Glatfelter came to a stop on the front stretch with a flat front tire.

Larson led Macri, Reutzel, Zearfoss and Marks to the cone for the single-file restart. With the leaders mostly using the bottom line around the track Cory Eliason went to the top to pass cars on the restart, driving from tenth to eighth in one lap. Marks used the top as well to get by Zearfoss and take back the fourth spot.

The yellow flag flew again on lap 30 when Chad Trout, who had set quick time in time trials, got into the inside wall in turn 2. The caution with 10 laps to go erased a 3.172 second lead for Larson.

Once again Larson paced the field for the restart. Reutzel drove under Macri in turns 1 and 2 to take second on the restart. Marks was right there to challenge Macri for third and made the pass.

Abreu made his way back into the top five after getting by Zearfoss.

The red flag flew on lap 34 when Paul McMahan and Dietrich got together in turn 3 sending Dietrich on a wild ride.

Larson led Reutzel, Marks, Macri and Abreu for the final restart of the race with six laps to go.

Eliason used the top once again on the restart, this time to take sixth from Zearfoss. Marks also went high trying to close the gap on Reutzel.

Larson got his fourteenth All Star win of the season beating Reutzel to the checkered flag by 3.165 seconds. Marks crossed the line third and Abreu was fourth. Macri held on to finish fifth.

This Friday and Saturday, September 25 & 26, Lincoln Speedway is hosting the Dirt Nationals for the Central PA Legends.

Reutzel Gets Third Grove Win In All Stars Gunn Memorial Dirt Classic Qualifier

Hanson claims 305s

9/18/20

Mechanicsburg – All Stars point leader Aaron Reutzel of Clute, Texas, scored the $5,000 victory in the Jack Gunn Memorial Dirt Classic Qualifier for sprint cars on Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway.

Reutzel took the lead from Gio Scelzi one lap shy of the halfway point in the 30-lap main event to notch his third career victory at the famed oval where he became the first-ever All Stars circuit regular to win a sanctioned event last season.

With the win Reutzel continues to be the only All Stars driver to ever win at the track after what was the 40th outing for the circuit at Williams Grove on Friday night.

Fresno, California’s Gio Scelzi started second in the field and nabbed the lead with a massive slider over polesitter Brian Brown on the initial green when the field roared into the first corner.

Scelzi was then off and running with the lead as Brown raced second until lap six when fourth starter Reutzel made his first bid for the runner up spot with an attempted slider in the first and second turns.

However Brown rallied back to reclaim the spot only to again fall victim two laps later and this time Reutzel made the move stick.

Leader Scelzi entered the rear of the field on lap 10 of the contest and then lost significant ground to Reutzel on lap 13 when he lost the handle on the cushion in turn two and nearly spun out.

This allowed Reutzel to close drastically before he was able to drive under Scelzi for control on lap 14.

With Scelzi on the cushion, Reutzel took the low line through the first and second turns and then drag raced Scelzi onto the backstretch to emerge with control.

Once Reutzel was at the front, attention shifted to the battle for third between Brown and fifth starter Kyle Larson.

The pair raced hard for the spot with Larson working the top before he took the position only to see Brown work his magic and drive back by with 12 laps to go.

Larson refused to give up his runs on the high side until late in the race, continuing to rally for third to no avail.

A lone caution flag with two laps to go settled the non-stop pace when fifth runner Zeb Wise slowed in the second corner.

Reutzel walked off on the restart for the win by 1.514 seconds over Scelzi.

Brown blew a right rear on the final circuit, falling off of the pace.

Larson rode home third followed by Paul McMahan and Brent Marks.

Sixth through 10th went to Anthony Macri, Danny Dietrich, Kerry Madsen, Freddie Rahmer and Dylan Cisney.

The win was Reutzel’s 10th on the All Stars tour this season and his 14th overall in 2020 competition.

“Our car was phenomenal tonight,” Reutzel said.

“I could blow in on the top, move through the middle and run the bottom.”

Heats went to Brown, Wise, McMahan and Reutzel with twin dashes going to Brown and Scelzi.

Chat Trout won the B Main.

Scelzi set quick time over the field with a lap of 16.742 seconds.

Jaremi Hanson started on the pole and won the 20-lap 305 sprint main to close the night.

Eighth starter Ken Duke Jr. rode home second followed by John Walp, Derek Hauck and Dave Brown Jr.

Heats went to Jake McLain, Jared Zienkoaski, Kirsten Hess and Duke with twin consolations going to Dominic Melair and Landon Price.

Feature Finishes, 9/18/20:

410 sprints, 30 laps: 1. 87-Aaron Reutzel [4]; 2. 18-Gio Scelzi [2]; 3. 57-Kyle Larson [5]; 4. 13-Paul McMahan [3]; 5. 5-Brent Marks [11]; 6. 39M-Anthony Macri [14]; 7. 48-Danny Dietrich [17]; 8. 2M-Kerry Madsen [7]; 9. 51-Freddie Rahmer [12]; 10. 5C-Dylan Cisney [10]; 11. 17-Ian Madsen [8]; 12. 26-Cory Eliason [9]; 13. 27S-Adrian Shaffer [19]; 14. 91-Kyle Reinhardt [21]; 15. 24-Rico Abreu [15]; 16. 14-Tony Stewart [18]; 17. 1X-Chad Trout [20]; 18. 24w-Lucas Wolfe [25]; 19. 21M-Brian Montieth [22]; 20. 99-Skylar Gee [16]; 21. 3Z-Brock Zearfoss [13]; 22. 21-Brian Brown [1]; 23. 11-Zeb Wise [6]; 24. 1W-Matt Campbell [23]; 25. 11T-TJ Stutts [24]; 26. 55K-Robbie Kendall [26]

LINCOLN SPEEDWAY

Abbottstown, PA

KYLE LARSON BACK IN VICTORY LANE WITH $6,900 WELDON STERNER WIN

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Saturday, September 19 (7:00pm) ALL STAR CIRCUIT OF CHAMPIONS | $20,000 to WIN DIRT CLASSIC VII for 410 Sprints (TT) [rain date: Sun, Sept. 20]

Thursday, September 24 (6:00pm) Open practice for all divisions

Friday, September 25 (6:00pm) DIRT NATIONALS for Central PA Legends + 305 Sprints

Saturday, September 26 (6:00pm) DIRT NATIONALS for Central PA Legends + 358 Sprints

Abbottstown, PA (September 16, 2020) – Kyle Larson was shut out of victory lane at Lincoln earlier in the year when he made the trip to Central PA for Speedweek. On Wednesday night Larson was back on top of his short-track game when he wired the field in the 33-lap Weldon Sterner Memorial feature to score a $6,900 payday. Larson’s win also earned him a guaranteed starting spot in Saturday’s Dirt Classic VII.

Larson shared the front row with pole-sitter Rico Abreu. With invaders making up the front row, the PA Posse was represented by Anthony Macri and TJ Stutts in row two for the start of the main event.

When the green flag flew Larson and Abreu were racing door to door with Larson having the slight advantage at the flag stand. Larson held on to the lead with Abreu in second, Stutts in third, Lance Dewease in fourth and Macri in fifth.

The first caution of the race came on lap 2 when Brian Brown came to a stop on the front stretch. Brian Montieth, who was sporting the Sterner Cement #69 wing for the night’s memorial race, had just passed Macri to enter into the top five when the yellow came out, sending him back to sixth for the restart.

Larson paced the field ahead of Abreu, Stutts, Dewease and Macri for the single-file restart. Larson and Abreu both opted to run the top in turns 1 and 2 while Dewease used the bottom to get by Stutts for third.

The yellow came out again on lap 4 when Brian Montieth got turned around in turn 4. Montieth nearly got upside-down with a front right flat tire. Montieth’s team changed the tire and he rejoined the field for the restart.

The running order of the top five for the restart was Larson, Abreu, Dewease, Stutts and Macri.

The All Star Circuit of Champion point leader, Aaron Reutzel, was a rocket on the restart, getting by Macri on the top of turn 4 for fifth and then beating Stutts to the line to take fourth. Reutzel went to work on reeling in Dewease.

Larson entered lapped traffic on lap 9 and it wasn’t long before he was in heavy traffic allowing Abreu to close in.

After making his way through the heavy traffic Larson pulled away from Abreu. While Larson and Abreu were running the top, Dewease was using the bottom line around the track to reel in Rico. Abreu tried to take Dewease’s line away by going to the bottom in turn 1 on lap 20, but Abreu’s car slid up the track allowing Dewease to make the pass for second.

Danny Dietrich brought out the caution on lap 23 when he got turned around in turn 1. Dietrich rejoined the field.

Larson went high and Dewease opted to go low into turn 1 on the restart. Abreu used the top to close in on Dewease as Macri and Stutts battled for fifth.

Another caution came on lap 29 when Ian Madsen got into the wall in turn 2.

Larson led Dewease, Abreu, Reutzel and Stutts to the cone for the final restart of the race.

Once again Larson went high and Dewease went low. Rico got by Dewease using the top of the track. Lance went to the top to hold off a late race charge from Reutzel.

Larson took the checkered flag .746 seconds ahead of Abreu. Dewease finished third and Reutzel crossed the line fourth. Macri held off Stutts for a fifth place finish.

This Saturday, September 19, Lincoln Speedway is back in action with the Dirt Classic VII. Action starts at 7:00PM with pit gates opening at 3:30PM and grandstand gates opening at 4:00PM.

Dewease Earns Record Seventh Tuscarora 50 Win in Front of Record Crowd at Port Royal Speedway

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Penn. (Sept. 12, 2020) In the world of sports, the number seven is entrenched with greatness.

Richard Petty, Dale Earnhardt and Jimmie Johnson all won seven championships to cement their legacy as NASCAR's greatest drivers.

In football, seven is what everyone is aiming for in terms of scoring touchdowns. In baseball and basketball, game seven is when all the chips are on the line and the stars come out and legends are made.

On Saturday night, Lance Dewease further entrenched his name in the history books of sprint car racing and Port Royal Speedway as he bested Anthony Macri and Dylan Cisney and the Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 to pick up his record breaking seventh Tuscarora 50 presented by Packer's Concessions and Ramsey's Car Wash of Mifflintown title at the Juniata County oval.

Even more impressive, Dewease has now won Tuscarora 50 titles in four separate decades (90's, 00's, 2010's and 2020). Oh yea, the win was worth an all-time high $53,000 plus $1275 in lap money.

"Honestly, I always just wanted to race and I never dreamed of winning seven or anything really," said Dewease. "I've had some great teams over the years and some great wins, but this team here is so much fun and this is just really cool."

Dewease and Rico Abreu led the field to the green flag and it was Dewease jumping out to the early lead. Abreu was right on his tail at the flagstand. Two laps later Macri, who started sixth, got by TJ Stutts for third.

Two laps later Stutts slowed on the track to bring out the first caution with motor issues. Meanwhile Kyle Larson, who started 22nd on the grid, was already up to 11th. When the field went back to green-flag action Larson broke inside the top-10, but Dewease was in command up front.

Over the next seven laps, Abreu kept Dewease within striking distance and he was slowly reeling in the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame driver. He tried on lap 13 to slide him for the lead entering turn 1 and he briefly held the lead, but Dewease powered back under him down the backstretch.

Buried heavy a lapped traffic, five laps later, Abreu once again reeled in the leader and this time he used a head of steam off the outside of turn three and four to lead lap 19.

"It was getting interesting there in lap traffic and I think I was maybe a little too relaxed," said Dewease. "He got by me there and I was definitely a little upset with myself, but I wasn't about to push it that early in the race."

Abreu didn’t have a lot of time to open up a lead though as the caution flew one lap later when Brian Brown came to a stop on the backstretch. Abreu led the next five laps with limited movement throughout the field before a competition yellow flew at halfway that allowed teams to make adjustments and fuel up.

Once the field went back to green flag action, Abreu jumped out to the lead and by lap 30 he held nearly a 1.0 second advantage. Dewease was searching around the speedway for a way to make up ground and by lap 37 he had cut the distance slightly.

Meanwhile, Larson was running in seventh and newly crowned track champion Logan Wagner was running in 9th from his 19th starting spot.

Fan's dreams for a late race battle between Abreu and Dewease were shattered though on lap 37 when Abreu slowed on the backstretch with mechanical issues to hand the lead back to Dewease.

"We made a few changes there at the halfway point and I think we were going to have something for him anyways, but it's a shame we didn’t get to find out," said Dewease. "Rico is a class act and you hate to see that for him, but I wasn't going to be upset about leading the race as 50 laps is the name of the game."

Dewease commanded the field on the restart and jumped out to a 1.5 second advantage by lap 40, Meanwhile Macri and Cisney were putting on a show behind him for the second position as the two traded sliders at both ends of the track.

One lap later it was last year's Tuscarora 50 winner, Aaron Reutzel, slowing with rear end damage after contact with the outside guardrail to bring out the caution. Meanwhile Larson had cracked the top five.

With everyone wondering if Yung Money had one last charge in him, Dewease jumped out to a 2.3 second advantage over the next five laps. Macri and Cisney continued to go after the second positon, with Macri finally clearing Cisney on lap 45. Larson moved into fourth as well.

Macri cut the distance in half over the final handful of laps, but Dewease was just too far ahead to catch and the Fayetteville, Pa. legend brought the record-setting crowd to it’s feet as he crossed the checkered flag on top for the second consecutive night.

Maxcri, Cisney, Larson and Thursday's winner Cory Eliason completed the top five while Wagner, Tyler Courtney, Spencer Bayston, Kerry Madsen and Freddie Rahmer made up the rest of the top- 10.

"Sometimes you have the best car and don't win and sometimes things fall your way and it seemed tonight it was just meant to be," said Dewease. "We haven't had a season up to our standards this year and it just seems we haven't been real good. I think people maybe underestimated us a bit and I this is just a really special night."

For Macri, he thought that he wasted too much time battling with Cisney for second and that if he'd cleared him earlier he may have had a shot.

"We were good all night, but I think I used up my stuff a bit trying to hold off Dylan," said Macri, who also earned $300 for setting quick time earlier in the night. "This is the second night in a row we're sitting here second to that 69k car, so maybe we're just a second-place car this weekend."\

Earlier in the night Lucas Wolfe picked up $2000 during a non-qualifier feature event that lasted 20 laps. Wolfe also earned a guaranteed spot in next years Tuscarora 50, which speedway official announced will once again be a three-day show in 2021 with an increased purse and feature the All Stars again.

Brett Michalski, Tyler Walton, Curt Stroup and Tyler Bear completed the top-five.

Abbottstown, PA (September 12, 2020) – The super late models made their second appearance of the season at Lincoln Speedway on Saturday night. A strong field of 21-cars was in the pits to vie for the $3,000 prize. After taking over the lead on the back stretch on lap 1, Bryan Bernheisel wired the field to claim his first super late model victory at the track. Bernheisel held one win in the limited late model division going into Saturday night’s competition.

Tyler Horst and Bryan Bernheisel made up the front row of the 30-lap feature. Horst led the field into turn 1 with Bernheisel to his outside. Bernheisel grabbed the lead down the back stretch to lead lap 1.

Bryan’s dad, Jim Bernheisel, and Nick Dickson battled for third with Jim holding the spot. Jim went to work on Horst for second and then the yellow flag came out on lap 2. Chad Julius got turned around in turn 2.

Bryan led, Horst, Jim, Dickson and Shaun Jones to the cone for the single-file restart.

Bryan went to the top on the restart and started to pull away from the field. Horst held on to second as Jim was closing in once again. Jones got by Dickson for fourth.

The second caution of the race cam on lap 5 for Chad Julius and DJ Groft when they got together in turns 1 and 2.

Jim got by Horst for second. Jones didn’t waste any time starting to work on Horst for the third spot. Jason Covert entered the top five on lap on lap 6.

Bryan had a straight-away lead as he caught lapped traffic on lap 10.

Behind the Bernheisel duo a three-car battle for third was well underway between Horst, Jones and Covert.

Kyle Martin got backwards in turn 2 on lap 11 bringing out the yellow flag.

The top five for the restart were Bryan, Jim, Horst, Jones and Covert.

Once again Bryan pulled away from the field on the restart. Jones and Horst raced door to door down the back stretch for third.

Covert joined the battle for third making it a three-car battle at the line on lap 13. Jones got by Horst at the line to take third. Two laps later Covert followed taking fourth from Horst.

Bernheisel had a commanding lead as he caught lapped traffic yet again on lap 16. Jim, Covert and Jones battled for second with Covert getting by Jones for third on lap 17.

Jones didn’t let Covert pull away and the two raced side by side for position allowing Dylan Yoder to catch them. Yoder, who started fifteenth in the main event, got by Jones for fourth on lap 19.

Covert got by Jim for second with 10 laps to go. Jim hit the wall and lost some ground falling to fifth but the caution came out allowing Jim to salvage his third place spot.

Pole-sitter Horst pulled in right before the yellow. The caution on lap 21 was for Kyle Martin.

Covert stayed with Bryan going into turn 1 on the restart while Jim, Jones and Yoder battled for third. Jones got the spot by a nose over Jim at the line on lap 26 as the two were door to door.

Gene Knaub, who started the race twelfth, used the bottom to get by Yoder for fifth with two laps to go.

Bernheisel got to the checkered flag 1.250 seconds ahead of Covert. Jones held on to finish third and Knaub crossed the line fourth. Jim salvaged a fifth place finish.

Jim Bernheisel, Bernie Beard and Chad Myers won the super late model heat races.

Brett Wanner Wins and Claims Summer Series Championship

Not only did Brett Wanner win his second feature event of the season at Lincoln on Saturday night, with the win Wanner also claimed the 358 Sprint Summer Series Championship.

Wanner shared the front row with Dylan Norris for the 25-lap feature. Wanner led the field into turn 1. Norris opted for the low line through the turns to hold onto second.

Fourth-place starter, Cameron Burke slowed after making contact with Cody Fletcher in turn 4. Burke was able to make it off the track before the yellow flag flew.

Shortly after Burke exited the track the caution did come out on lap 3 for a four-car pile up in turns 3 and 4. Zane Rudisill, CJ Tracy, Travis Scott and Jordan Strikler were involved. All four cars rejoined the field.

Wanner paced the field ahead of Norris, Fletcher, Jordan Givler and Chad Criswell for the restart.

Norris continued to use the bottom line around the track to stick with Wanner who was running the high line. Givler was working on Fletcher for third when the yellow came out again on lap 6. Kyle Rohrbaugh ended up nosed into the inside wall on the back stretch.

Givler made the pass for third before the caution came out. The top five for the restart were Wanner, Norris, Givler, Fletcher and Criswell.

Going into Saturday night’s feature, Todd Rittenhouse Jr. had a 65 point advantage over Fletcher in the season point standings for first. Fletcher fell off the pace on lap 7 bringing out the caution. Not what Fletcher wanted to have happen with the point battle so tight with only two races remaining after Saturday.

With the loss of Fletcher, Steve Owings made his way into the top 5 for the restart.

Chris Frank had his eyes set on getting into the top 5 and battled side by side with Owings at the line on lap 8. Owings edged out Frank by inches to hold onto fifth.

The point battle took another interesting turn when Todd Rittenhouse Jr. brought out the red flag on lap 11. Rittenhouse took a wild ride in turns 3 and 4.

Criswell battled Givler for third down the front stretch on the restart as Wanner drove away from the rest of the field.

Givler got away from Criswell’s challenge and used the top line around the track to hunt down Norris for second.

Norris was closing in on Wanner as the laps wound down. Dylan made a pass for the lead down the back stretch and the two crossed the line side by side on lap 23 with Norris having the advantage.

Wanner reclaimed the lead coming out of turn 4 with white flag waving and beat Norris back to the checkered flag by .186 seconds. Givler finished a close third and Criswell crossed the line fourth. Owings completed the top five.

358 Sprint heats were won by Brett Wanner, Dylan Norris, Jordan Givler and Cody Fletcher.

Scott Shaffer Best in Vintage Outlaw Series

Gene Wrightstone started on the pole of the 20-lap Vintage Outlaw Racing Series feature. Wrightstone led the field into turn 1 with Mark Hahn and Jeff Paulson in tow. Paulson got by Hahn for second and Mike Stofflet followed taking third.

Paulson caught Wrightstone and was challenging him for the lead when the caution came out on lap 4. Stofflet, who had been running third, got turned around in turn 2.

Paulson took a look to the inside of Wrightstone on the restart but couldn’t make the pass. Paulson took the lead down the back stretch on lap 6 right before the caution came out for Hahn. Hahn had been running third and got backwards in turn 4.

Scott Shaffer was closing in on Wrightstone for second as Paulson entered lapped traffic.

Shaffer got by Wrightstone and went to work reeling in Paulson. Shaffer got by Paulson for the lead on the back stretch as the two navigated lapped traffic.

After spinning out early, Stofflet had made his way back up through the field and into the top five. Stofflet got by Wrightstone for third on lap 15 as the two raced down the back stretch.

Stofflet beat Paulson to the checkered flag for the win. Stofflet finished third and Wrightstone crossed the line fourth. Hahn completed the top five.

Lance Dewease Takes the Night Before the 50 With the All Star Circuit of Champions at Port Royal Speedway

Jeff Rine Wins Super Late Model Feature While Logan Wagner and Andy Haus Wrap Up Points Titles

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Penn. (Sept. 11, 2020)- Lance Dewease outdueled Anthony Macri and Kyle Larson to pick up the Night Before the 50 victory with the Ollie's Bargain Outlets All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1Friday night during the 166th Annual Juniata County Fair at the Port Royal Speedway.

The win was the 40th career All Star triumph for the Keystone state favorite and the 114th all-time victory for Dewease at the Juniata County oval. Courtesy of Ted Reitz, the triumph paid $6000 to win and leaves Dewease as favorite as he heads into Saturday night's $53,000 finale looking for his record seventh Tuscarora 50 title.

"We were really good all night. We needed that to get our confidence going as we havn't had the best of seasons up until now," said Dewease. "The race is 30 laps and we just wanted to get to the end. I knew if I could get to them they might slip up and I was just waiting my time for an opportunity."

Australian invader Kerry Madsen and Larson lined up on the front row for the 30-lap affair and Madsen pulled a slider on Larson entering turn one to go to the point. However, the former NASCAR star showed why he's been so successful at the speedway by ducking back under him to take the lead exiting turn four and led lap one.

Macri, who started third threaded the needle between Dewease and Madsen on the frontstretch the following lap. Dewease moved into third as well. One lap later the only caution of the night flew when Paul McMahan stopped on the backstretch.

As he has so many times already this season, Larson blasted out to a half straightaway lead following the restart. By lap 10, Dewease was all over Macri for the runner-up position and he was working the bottom of the speedway with perfection.

"Anthony has been so good here this year and he really knows how to get around this place up top," said Dewease. "I was trying a few things and he was pulling away form me so I knew I had to get back to the bottom and just be patient."

Lapped traffic entered the picture on lap 12 and that allowed both Macri and Dewease to start chipping away at Larson's advantage. With 15 laps to go, the top three were all under a blanket and Macri took his shot by throwing a slider entering turn three to briefly take the lead, but Larson again powered under to hold the lead heading to the flagstand.

Larson briefly went to the bottom of the track in an effort to protect his lead, but found that he was better up top and opened back up a near 1.0 second advantage two laps later. Macri again closed the distance on lap 18 and he tried the same move again in turn's three and four, which Larson held on by a nose to lead the lap.

With 10 laps to go, Macri tried again in turn one and two, but Larson again ducked under him coming down the backstretch to stay up front.

"I think as a driver if I had been a little smarter I might have held up a bit," said Macri. "He was right in my sights and I got a little excited and I think we needed to wait just a little bit."

With the leaders throwing haymakers at each other, Dewease saw his opportunity he'd been patiently waiting for. With all three podium drivers within a few car-lengths, Dewease made his move on lap 25 as he shot past Macri in turn's one and two and he slid under Larson entering turn three to take the lead coming off four.

"I actually thought Kyle was going to come down and take my momentum and he never did," said Dewease. "I don’t know if he expected me to make that move, but we got past him and that's an accomplishment in itself."

Dewease searched the track throughout the final five laps to find the best way around in clean air, but nobody was going to touch him as he cruised home to the checkered flag by a margin of 2.484 seconds.

"You know Kyle beat me once earlier this year and he waved at me when he passed me at Williams Grove," said Dewease. "I wasn't going to let that happen again. Those guys were both going really hard and you have to on a track like this. But I don’t get passed too often once I get the lead and here we are tonight."

Macri was able to get by Larson on the white flag lap to secure the second spot and believes he has a car capable of finishing one spot higher Saturday night.

"To run second to Lance and to finish ahead of Kyle, we are definitely doing something right," said Macri. "We'll do our homework a little and scratch our heads and see if we can be sitting one better tomorrow night."

Larson, Dylan Cisney and Rico Abreu made up the top five, while Madsen, Thursday's winner Cory Eliason, Brent Marks, Danny Dietrich and Ian Madesn filled out the top-10. Brock Zearfodss finished 11th and gained 15 positions to earn the $500 hard charger courtesy of Valley Supply Inc.

Logan Wagner finished 16th to lock up his third consecutive Weikert's Livestock 410 Sprint Car championship at the speedway as well.

"It's been a sort of up and down season and it was soo cool to race down to the end with my dad for a point championship," said Wagner. "I'm glad we could come out on top, but now we turn our focus to the Tuscarora 50 and see if we can’t cap off this weekend with some more success."

Super Late Models

Jeff Rine capitalized on a front row starting spot to pick up the River Valley Builders Super Late Model feature win over pole sitter Trent Brenneman and Gary Stuhler.

The feature event win was worth $3000 courtesy of Ted Reitz and moved Rine solely into 10th all time on the wins list of the speedway in late model competition with 25

"Finally we got one here this year. Starting position means so much at this place," said Rine. "That last restart saved us as my tires needed cooled off and we were able to make it work."

Trent Brenneman led the majority of the race from the pole position, but Rine and Colton Flinner were hot in pursuit for the first half of the race.

Rine was closing rapidly on the bottom of the speedway, but a three car incident with 10 laps to go gave Brenneman clean air and a clean start.

When the field returned to green flag action, Rine got a run on the outside of turn one and exited turn two with the lead. Stuhler also dispatched of Flinner on the restart to move into the podium position and was all over Brenneman for second.

Brenneman rebounded over the next several laps and was closing on Rine with three to go. However, Rine was too good in clean air and took the checkers by a 2.027 advantage.

Brenneman, Stuher, Ross Robinson and Dylan Yoder rounded out the top five. Flinner, Dan Stone, Andy Haus, Brett Schadel and Jim Yoder made up the top ten.

"I was getting signals that Flinner was on the top back there and I knew Trent was going to be tough form the front row, but we found something here recently and this car was just great," said Rine. "I wish we'd been a little better earlier this year, but it’s nice to close out the year in this new victory lane."

With his seventh-place finish, Haus wrapped up the track championship in the Super Late Model division as well.

"It's been a short season, but we spent a lot of long nights working in the garage to get to this point," said Haus. "We were way off tonight and we went through a lot of equipment to get to this point. The competition here is as good as it gets and it’s unbelievable to be sitting here as a champion."

Cory Eliason Strikes First During Night One of Tuscarora 50 Opener with All Star Circuit of Champions

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Pa. (Sept 10, 2020)- Cory Eliason kicked off the 2020 racing season at Port Royal Speedway with a victory during opening day back in March. If Thursday night’s performance is a sign of things to come, he just may end the season in victory lane at the Juniata County oval as well.

Eliason bested Australian invader Kerry Madsen and the legendary Tony Stewart to pick up the Ollie’s Bargain Outlets All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 night one opener presented by Ted Reitz of the 53rd Annual Tuscarora 50 at Port Royal Speedway during the 166th Annual Juniata County Fair.

The win was worth $6000 and came on an incredibly fast racetrack that saw a handful of drivers get upside down and suffer flat tires throughout the duration of the feature.

“They don’t call this place ‘The Speed Palace’ for nothing,” exclaimed Eliason. “It was a blast here tonight and definitely a lot different than what we saw on Monday during the Labor Day Classic. The kind of track we had here tonight is kind of my forte and we were fast right out the gate tonight.”

After a pair of red flag incidents for James McFadden and Kyle Larson halted racing action without the completion of a lap, Stewart and weekend invader Brian Brown led the field to the green flag, with Stewart getting the jump and leading lap one.

Eliason, who started third, dropped to fourth on the opening lap but he quickly regained the position a lap later by getting around Madsen and he slipped under Brown entering turn 1 on lap three to move into the runner-up position.

By lap five, Eliason was all over the rear bumper of Stewart and two laps later he shot under underneath the leader to take the point entering turn one. However, the pass was negated when third place running Brown blew a right-rear tire and got into the outside guardrail to bring out the caution.

On the return to green, Stewart got a great restart and jumped back out to the lead but Eliason quickly showed he was to be denied. On lap 10 he closed to the bumper of Stewart again and the two raced side by side heading to the flag stand two laps later with Stewart holding the narrowest of advantages.

However, the momentum was enough for Eliason to pounce as he slid under Stewart to take the top spot and lead lap 13.

“You could get a good run and roll the bottom and that curb up top in three and four was very much like Tulare in California and that’s where I could make up my ground early,” said Eliason. “Tony kind of was showing me the way out there in three and four and I knew I had to lock it in and get him where I could as soon as possible.”

Eliason hit lap traffic at the halfway point and with a commanding lead of 2.345 seconds, he had nearly got tangled up in a wreck when track point leader Logan Wagner got into the fence exiting turn 2 and got upside down. He collected Spencer Bayston and Tyler Bear, but Eliason was able to evade any contact to stay in front.

On the restart, Stewart showed his nose through the middle in turn’s one and two, but Eliason was just too strong as he blasted off the cushion to lead the way once again.

Seventh place start Gio Scelzi had found something on the top of the speedway and after cracking the top-five earlier, he moved past Lance Dewease for fourth with 11 laps remaining. Three laps later Rico Abreu was bitten by the tire bug though as he slowed with a flat left-rear to bring out the caution.

Stewart tried the bottom again on the restart, but Eliason again powered off the top of the track to blast out to a hefty advantage. It looked like he was going to coast home to a commanding victory, but Brock Zearfoss slowed after he blew a right-rear tire in turn three and nearly collected Eliason as he was coming around for the checkered flag.

“You know I thought we were going to lose one there as I came around and saw Brock right in the middle of the track and I had nowhere to go,” said Eliason. “I just turned the car sideways and hoped there’d be enough room to get by and thankfully there was.”

The late caution set up a green-white-checkered finish, but Eliason was not going to be denied as he cruised home to the checkered flag by a 2.114 second advantage. Madsen was able to slide past Stewart for second on the white flag lap, while Scelzi and Tyler Courtney filled out the top-five.

Aaron Reutzel, Ian Madsen, Anthony Macri, Brent Marks and Dewease made up the top-10. Ian Madsen earned $500 as the hard charger (+17) courtesy of Valley Supply Inc.

“We worked on a few things tonight, but nothing major,” said Eliason. “Obviously our main focus is Saturday night as that’s where the big money Is on the line, but this is a nice way to start the weekend and I’m looking forward to two more nights here at Port Royal.”

For Madsen, he knew in clean air Eliason would be hard to catch and was just happy to escape night one with a podium finish. He also set quick time earlier in the night and received $200 courtesy of Packer’s Concessions.

“I don’t know that we could’ve done much different as Cory was just really good and tough to pass,” said Madsen. “I was just kind of biding my time out there and luckily I got a late restart to get by Tony and I just needed more time and help if we wanted to get Cory.”

Heat races were won by Brown, Eliason, Dewease, Stewart and Christopher Bell, while Stewart and Brown won dash races. Freddie Rahmer picked up the B-main victory.

Anthony Macri Continues Winning Ways at Port Royal With 68th Annual Labor Day Classic Triumph

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Pa. (Sept. 7, 2020)- Anthony Macri capitalized on a front row starting spot and held off Brock Zearfoss and Logan Wagner to claim the 68th Annual Foss Jewelers Labor Day Classic Monday evening at Port Royal Speedway.

The victory was Macri’s sixth Port Royal Speedway triumph of the season and was worth $4000 for his efforts.

“I feel like we are clicking on all cylinders right now,” said Macri. “My confidence is obviously pretty good right now and I’m just glad we held on for the win.”

Macri lined up on the front row alongside of one-time winner on the season, Jeff Halligan, and after the first green flag was called back by track officials, he used momentum exiting turn two to slide under Halligan to lead lap one.

Zearfoss, who started fifth, was on the move early on as he moved to fourth on lap two and third the following circuit.

With the track taking rubber early, Halligan capitalized on Macri running the top of the Speedway and he used the bottom of the speedway in turn’s one and two to take the lead on lap five.

However, with lap traffic entering the picture only a few laps later, Macri capitalized on a rookie mistake by Halligan to lcose the gap significantly on lap eight.

Now glued to the bottom of the track, Macri regained the lead on lap nine and he started to stretch his advantage when the caution flew on lap 12 for a flat tire for Ian Madsen. By then, Zearfoss had disposed of Halligan as well and was lurking in the rearview.

“Jim and I talked before the feature and he told ne to run the top until we got passed and we got passed early,” said Macri, referring to his crew chief Jim Shuttlesworth. “He passed me, and I went into maintaining mode and getting into lapped traffic he made a mistake and I just snuck under him and started saving my stuff.”

Zearfoss had an opportunity on the restart to challenge Macri, but the caution again flew one lap later for a spinning Kyle Smith in turn one. Macri opened a half second advantage within three laps after a return to green, but the caution flew again on lap 18 for debris.

One more caution flew on lap 21 for a slowing Brent Marks, but for the rest of the race the name of the game was staying on the bottom and not missing your marks. Track point leader Logan Wagner was able to sneak into a podium position as well, but neither him or Zearfoss was able to capitalize as Macri hit all of his marks and crossed under the checkered flag by an advantage of 1.644 seconds.

Stutts and Halligan finished up the top-five, while Danny Dietrich, Mike Wagner, AJ Flick, Dylan Cisney and Justin Peck rounded out the top-ten.

Zach Newlin earned $400 courtesy of Valley Supply and Mike Cleck Paving as race’s hard charger by going 23rd to 13th.

“I was happy with the cautions, because it was keeping me out of lap traffic,” said Macri. “I knew lapped traffic would open the door for someone to make a ballsy move, so I was happy to see the cautions.

“At the same time, I was nervous because I was seeing all those right rear tires blowing and we had a soft right rear on so it was definitely nerve wracking. I was happy to see it end because those last five laps the tires were vibrating pretty bad and I knew it was only a matter of time before one went.”

For Zearfoss, who blew a right rear tire heading to the scales after the race, he knew without lapped traffic he’d have to rely on a mistake if he wanted to come home first.

“It was rubber racing, but our car was good enough to make a move,” said Zearfoss. “He had clean air the entire time basically. I noticed when he got to lapped traffic, he got really tight and we were still really good.

“I tried to get him one there and the caution came out and I was just hoping another chance would come around. We never got that chance unfortunately, but we’ll take second and keep plugging away.”

Wingless Super Sportsman

Billy Brian Jr. and Joey Biasi won a pair of Wingless Super Sportsman feature events Monday evening at Port Royal Speedway.

In their first feature event, Brian Jr. came form the fourth position to win over Kevin Gutshall, Biasi, Craig Perigo and Cliff Brian Jr.

Brian Jr. moved into second on the opening circuit and to the lead using the bottom of the speedway to pass Brian Hartzell in turn one and two with 18 to go.

Eric Jennings tried multiple times over the next dozen laps to get around Brian Jr, but he couldn’t get enough momentum to pull off a pass.

A late caution with three laps remaining set up a late-race shootout, however Brian Jr. was just too good on the bottom and he cruised home to the victory by 1.097 seconds.

“I’m old enough and ran enough labor day shows in my career to know if you don’t get up off the rubber it’s going to be hard for them to pass you,” said Brian Jr. who noted he last won a limited late model race at the speedway in 1989. “I’m dating myself a bit, but we just had to our marks and we were able to do that.”

Biasi capitalized on a front row starting spot to claim the second feature, which was a rain postponement make-up from earlier this season. He took the checkered flag by a margin of 1.147 seconds over Jennings, Steve Wilbur, Steve Whary and Brian Hartzell.

Biasi fell back to third early in the race, but with 15 to go he moved back into the runner up spot when Derek Sheaffer slid up in turn one. He quickly was all over Wharry and he used a slide job entering turn one with 13 to go to take the lead for good.

A late race caution with four laps to go had Jennings all over the back end of Biasi, but with cars battling hard behind him for the runner-up spot, Biasi cruised home to the victory.

Limited Late Models

Todd Snook led every lap of the Selinsgrove Limited Late Model feature event to bring home his second career feature event in the division at the speedway. Snook also owns four feature wins previously in the Econo Late Model division.

Snook won by an advantage of 1.085 seconds over Dillan Stake, Devin Hart, Donnie Farling and Andrew Yoder.

Snook and Curt Dunn led the field to the green flag and Snook got the early jump form the bottom of the speedway.

A handful of cautions plagued the race for the first half of the event and by lap seven, Hart was all over Snook for the lead. The two made brief contact on the backstretch with seven laps to go, but the contact halted the momentum of Stake and allowed Snook to pull away.

A multi-car caution once again set up a six-lap dash for the checkered flag, but with Stake and Hart doing battle for second, Snook was able to pull away to earn his first victory of the season.

“I don’t know if all those cautions helped me or hurt me, but I was starting to get comfortable there late,” said Snook. “We were lucky enough to draw the pole and that’s probably what won it for us, but I’d rather be lucky than good.”

4 Cylinders

Eric Boozel won the 4-cylinder feature event Monday evening at Port Royal Speedway. The division started 43 cars for the 15-lap race and with five laps remaining, only 20 cars remained.

Boozel started on the pole and fell back to fifth on the opening turn. He regained his composure though and advanced to second at the completion of lap one. After multiple cautions, Boozel took the lead when Adam Campbell got sideways while leading on a lap nine restart and he went untouched the rest of the way.

“I had a good car, but Adam had a better car and that was his race to win,” said Boozel. “I was waiting on him to slip off and I could see he had an issue and I just tried not to get caught up in a wreck.”

A New Identity In Twenty-Twenty

Macri And Marks Thrill In Selinsgrove Sprint Battle Sunday, Rine Gets 112th Oval Win In ULMS Late Model Main, Jones Scores In Roadrunners

9/6/20

Selinsgrove, Pa. – Anthony Macri picked up the 30-lap National Open Qualifier for 410 sprints at Selinsgrove Speedway on Sunday night, besting Brent Marks after a battle for the lead with nine circuits to go.

Macri’s first career oval win was worth $5,000 and it earned him a guaranteed starting spot in the September 26, $20,000 to win National Open Jim Nace Memorial.

Danville’s Jeff Rine drove around Pittsburgh’s Jared Miley to pick up the 30-lap ULMS super late model feature worth $4,000.

The victory was Rine’s 112th at the track and it saw him record the Civil War Super Late Model Series title as waged between Selinsgrove and Williams Grove Speedways.

Jake Jones took the lead on a final lap restart to pick up the 12-lap roadrunner feature to close out the night.

AJ Flick had the pole flanked by Anthony Macri for the start of the 410 sprint feature.

The first lap was halted before it could be completed for a violent backstretch crash that saw Indiana’s Justin Peck and Port Royal’s Dylan Cisney flip hard.

Cisney was transported to a nearby hospital for tests and was released very early Monday morning with no injuries.

Macri soared into control over third starter Brent Marks on the first completed circuit with Flick running third.

Leader Macri entered the rear of the field on lap eight with sixth starter Brock Zearfoss now up to third and ready to challenge.

In what would turn out to be a non-stop event, the pace became dizzying by the halfway point as 10th starter Brian Brown drove up to fourth.

But it was the front trio that would settle the event while racing through traffic and with 10 laps to go, all three drivers were running under a blanket within one turn of each other, contesting for the to spot.

Marks blasted under Macri to take the lead deep in the first corner on lap 20 before sliding up in front to take Macri’s line.

Macri then dropped off of the cushion and raced back to Marks’ inside as the pair shot down the backstretch and into the third turn, still side by side.

Macri bolted low through turns three and four and was able to reclaim command back to the stripe with nine laps to go.

The leader then dropped to the low side in the first and second turns to regroup as Zearfoss raced with Marks for the runner-up spot.

With four laps to go, Zearfoss was able to secure second and start tracking down leader Macri but he failed to get quite close enough to make a bid for control.

Macri took the victory by .915 seconds with Brown riding home third followed by Marks and 17th starter Danny Dietrich, who earned the hard charger award worth $200.

Sixth through 10th went to Blane Heimbach, Freddie Rahmer, AJ Flick, Brian Montieth and TJ Stutts.

Heats went to Marks, Lucas Wolfe and Heimbach with Cisney scoring the consolation race.

Pittsburgh’s Jared Miley took the early lead from the outside of the front row in the 30-lap ULMS late model main and was leading over Jim Bernheisel with a 2.7 second advantage when the pace was slowed with seven laps in the book.

Running third for the restart, Centerville’s Max Blair took second on the restart and closed in on Miley while 10th starter Jeff Rine motored up to third.

Working the outside lane using maximum horsepower, Rine overtook Blair for second on lap 14 and then went to work on Miley to be scored the leader of lap 15.

The pace was then again slowed with 14 laps to go but Rine proved in control for the balance of the race.

Blair got by Miley for second with 10 laps to go but failed to get to Rine before the finish although he kept him honest the entire distance.

Rine’s margin of victory was .602 seconds with Miley finishing third followed by 16th starter Gregg Satterlee and Jim Bernheisel.

Sixth through 10th went to Jim Yoder, Shaun Jones, Mike Lupfer, Brett Schadel and Nathan Long.

Heats went to Blair, Kyle Knapp and Hayes Matter.

Fast time over the 26 car field was set by Blair with a lap of 18.870 seconds.

Scott Dunham Jr. led all but the final lap of the 12-lap roadrunner main.

Early in the race Will Brunson pressured Dunham for the lead but late in the event Jake Jones proved to be the challenger.

Jones got by Brunson and into second with two laps to go but then actually had to take the lead three times before he could be scored the official pacesetter as it took three different attempts to get the final lap recorded.

The victory was Jones’ fourth of the year at the track.

Brunson ended up second followed by Nathan Romig, Tom Brunson and Jimmy Kessler.

Heats went to Will Brunson and Dunham.

Mason Zeigler Earns 16th Annual Butch Renninger Victory for Super Late Models During 166th Annual Juniata County Fair Kick-Off

 

Brent Marks, Jared Fulkroad and Gregg Satterlee Claim Victories as Well

 

By- Justin Snyder

 

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Pa. (Sept. 5, 2020) Mason Zeigler held off Trevor Feathers and Gregg Satterlee to pick up the win in the 16th Annual Butch Renninger Memorial featuring the ULMS Super Late Models by a margin of 1.415 seconds.

 

The win was worth $5333 and was Zeigler's third career triumph at the Port Royal Speedway.

 

"We were good early on and I just gave it all I had out there to win this race," said Zeigler. "I never got to meet Butch, but I know he meant a lot to this place and was a great guy and it's an honor to be standing here carrying on that legacy."

 

Zeigler and Feathers led the field to the green flag for the 33-lap A-main and Zeigler jumped out to the early lead. However, it was third-place starter Satterlee and sixth-place starter Michael Norris on the move as the duo moved into second and third respectively at the completion of lap one.

 

Satterlee peaked under the leader entering turn three and pulled alongside of Zeigler coming to the line, but couldn’t make the pass. However, he was able to use that momentum to get under Zeigler in turn's one and two and pulled ahead down the backstretch to lead lap two.

 

By lap six Satterlee held a commanding lead in lap traffic, while Zeigler and Norris were battling side by side to track him down.

 

By lap 13 the two cars were closing rapidly and three laps later all three were nose to tail coming to the flag stand. Zeigler used the bottom of the speedway in one and two to regain the lead. Satterlee would fall back to third three laps later, but he put his car in overdrive and began marching back towards the front.

 

With ten laps remaining, Zeigler came off the top of the speedway and dove to the bottom of a lap car in turn three, allowing Satterlee to close to his bumper exiting turn four. Three laps later, Satterlee was all over Zeigler's bumper and Feathers had found something up top and regrouped to move back into third.

 

However the caution would fly for a slowing car on the backstretch. With the series utilizing Delaware restarts, Zeigler got a great jump on the field at the return to green-flag action and blasted out to a near 1.0 second advantage. Feathers capitalized on getting to start on the high-side and moved into second.

 

However Zeigler would not be denied and he took the checkered flag convincingly over Feathers, Satterlee, Norris and Kyle Lee.

 

"I would've have liked to have been a little better earlier, but ultimately we were good when we needed to be and capitalized on clean air," said Zeigler. "It’s been a pretty good weekend so far for us and hopefully this leads to even more wins."

 

For Feathers, he wasn't good enough early on and knew it be tough to catch Zeigler in clean air.

 

"Last time we had this car here we finished third, but we hadn't used it in a while and really had no notes to work off of coming in tonight," said Feathers. "We were pretty good there late and I hated to see that caution because who knows what we could've done in lap traffic. But second is not a bad showing at all."

 

Heat races earlier in the night paid $333 courtesy of Ted Reitz, while second place finishers paid $50 courtesy of David Bower. There was also a $133 hard luck award for the first non-qualifier courtesy of Pellman Trade and Gullwing Aviation and Reitz offered up $33 to the B-Main winner. Gene Knaub earned the $333 hard charger award courtesy of Brown's Automotive. Norris set quick time earlier in the night and earned $466 courtesy of Barron's Racing Engines and Del Shank.

 

There was a second ULMS Late Model feature  event that was a make-up feature from earlier this season and Gregg Satterlee led all 25 laps from the pole to earn the victory for his fifth Port Royal Speedway victory of the season.

 

Satterlee bested Michael Norris, Mason Zeigler, Max Blair and Andy Huas. The win was worth $3000 and came by an advantage of 1.102 seconds.

 

"I knew after that first feature that I'd need to be really aggressive in lap traffic as I felt being patient cost us a bit in the first one," said Satterlee. "It's always great to be in victory lane and two podiums on one night is pretty good."

Sprint Cars

 

Brent Marks held off a hard charging Anthony Macri and Lance Dewease to pick up his second win of the season during the 166th Annual Juniata County Fair opener at Port Royal Speedway.

 

The win was worth $4000 and required a little luck. Macri passed Marks in lap traffic coming to the flagstand, only for the pass to be negated as the caution flag waved before the lap could be completed.

 

"We were pretty fortunate to get that caution just in time or I don’t know if we'd have been able to get Anthony back," said Marks. "That allowed us to get back in clean air and out there I felt like we had the best car and that definitely helped us."

 

Western Pa. invader Sye Lynch and Justin Whittall led the field to the green flag and Whittall got the early jump on the field to lead lap one. George Hobaugh settled into second, while Ryan Smith moved into the third spot as well.

 

By lap five, Whittall was cruising as he held a nearly 1.1 second advantage over the field, but Marks, who started ninth, was coming fast. He got by Smith exiting turn four on lap six and three laps later he used a run coming off the top of the speedway exiting turn two to get by Hobaugh for second.

 

One lap later Dewease followed suit by taking the third spot and with Whittall in heavy lap traffic, Marks was gaining fast and he made his move for the lead with a slider in turn's three and four to take the top spot with 11 to go. 

 

"I knew we had to get to the front as quick as possible as those guys behind me were coming fast as well," said Marks. "Sometimes running second is better then running out front, but I knew with how it's been here this year and I knew I wanted the field chasing me."

 

Meanwhile, Anthony Macri was making his presence known as he screamed around the top of turn's one and two to move into the third spot. One lap later he disposed of Whittall for the runner up position and he brought Dewease along as well.

 

Macri was all over Marks on lap 17 and the two swapped positions in turn's three and four. Marks led by  mere inches the following circuit, while Dewease was lurking on the bottom waiting for either driver to make a mistake. 

 

With Macri running the top, Marks positioned firmly in the middle and Dewease on the bottom, the three drivers raced to the start/finish line the following lap and it appeared Macri had the momentum as he inched ahead coming to the line, but the caution flew just in the nick of time when Logan Wagner got into the inside gaurdrail on the backstretch to negate the pass.

 

"It was a hard to know where to go as I know how good Lance is on the bottom and Anthony was great up top, so I tried to go to the bottom there  exiting four to try and get a run on Macri," said Marks. "Ultimately he beat me off the corner, but luckily that caution came out and it definitely saved me."

 

With clean air ahead of him, Marks blasted out to the lead at the return to green-flag racing and he held a nearly 1.5 second advantage with five laps remaining. However the red flag flew on lap 22 for a multi-car incident in which Tyler Reeser needed to be transported to the hospital. He was alert and is currently being treated for multiple injuries.

 

The final restart was all Marks and he again blasted out to a nearly 1.2 second lead and he took the checkered flag by a 1.173 advantage over Macri, Dewease, Mike Wagner and Whittall.

 

"I just felt really comfortable in clean air and I think we had a great car all race long," said Marks. "I was trying to do some different stuff on the restarts to keep them guessing and it seemed to work tonight."

 

For Macri, he knew his best opportunity was in lap traffic and he felt like one may have gotten away from him with that late caution.

 

"We got behind at the start and let Brent and Lance get by us and I started driving harder than I really should have," said Macri. "That caution came out about two seconds too early and I knew we weren't going to catch Brent in clean air. We'll take what we got and move onto the next one."

 

Jeff Halligan, Smith, Brian Brown, Blane Heimbach and AJ Flick rounded out the top ten. Heimbach was the night's hard charger award winner courtesy of Valley Supply.

Limited Late Models

 

Jared Fulkroad bested Devin Hart and Devin Weyandt to pick up the Selinsgrove Ford Limited Late Model portion of the 16th Annual Butch Renninger Memorial to claim his first career victory at the Port Royal Speedway.

 

The win was worth $1333 and came after a late race pass with nine laps to go.

 

"My tires really starting coming in there late and I just committed to the bottom and figured if they were going to get around me, it need to be up top," said Fulkroad. "The track was awesome and we had an awesome car and I can’t thank everyone enough for getting me here."

 

It was a pair of 88's on the front row as Weyandt and Madeline Miller led the field to the green flag with Weyandt getting the early jump. Fulkroad was on the move early, moving from third to second on the opening lap as well.

 

He tried a slider in turn's one and two to take the lead on lap two, but couldn't make it stick. However, he used the momentum to pull under Weyandt exiting turn four and led lap two by a nose. Weyandt wouldn’t go away though and he used the outside of the track to pullback ahead the following circuit to lead lap three.

 

With ten laps to go, Fulkroad was all over Weyandt and using the bottom of the speedway he pulled ahead of him the following lap to lead lap 16.

 

Using the extreme high side of the track, sixth-place starter Matt Cochran suddenly entered the picture and he moved to fourth with seven laps to go and second with five to go. With Fulkroad struggling in lap traffic, Cochran pulled to his tail. 

 

However, he wasn't able to capitalize and Fulkroad pulled away to take the checkered flag. Hart made a last lap move form fourth to second to finish in the runner-up spot followed by Weyandt, Todd Snook and Cochran.

 

"This is just really cool and I don’t really know what to say," said Fulkroad. "I just have to thank my family and sponsors for sticking by me and this will always be a special night."

 

For Hart, who also earned the hard charger award, it was just an example of too little, too late.

 

"We were pretty good there, but it just took us too long to get to second," said Hart. "One of these years we'll end up in victory lane, but tonight we'll just be happy with second."

 

Heat winners earned $100 earlier in the night courtesy of Garman Concrete & Construction, while second earned $33 courtesy of Bill and Kay Weimer. Gullwing Aviation presented a $133 hard luck award, while Zimmerman Truck Repair offered up a $233 hard charger award. Finally Pellman Trade paid $33 to the highest finishing Juniata County driver.

Abbottstown, PA (September 5, 2020) – Danny Dietrich inked his name in Lincoln history with a sweep of the Twin 20 features during the Bob Leiby Memorial on Saturday night. The only other driver to accomplish this feat in Lincoln history was Steve Smith in 1992. It had been eight years since Twin 20 features were on the card at Lincoln. Brian Montieth and Dietrich split the last Twin 20 event held in 2012.

Brie Hershey and Brett Michalski made up the front row for the night’s first Twin 20 feature.

Michalski led the field into turn 1 with Hershey, Alan Krimes, Glenndon Forsythe and Adam Wilt making up the top five.

Wilt got by Forsythe for fourth, but the caution came out on lap 1 before the pass was official. The yellow was for Brie Hershey who go turned around in turns 3 and 4. Hershey rejoined the field.

Michalski led Krimes, Forsythe, Wilt and Brian Montieth to the cone for the single-file restart.

Michalski rolled through the top of turns 1 and 2 to maintain the lead on the restart as a three-car battle for third between Forsythe, Wilt and Montieth waged behind him.

The second caution of the race came on lap 4 when Hershey tried to exit the track out of turn 2 but stopped on the ramp.

Krimes went to the bottom of turn 1 on the restart to challenge Michalski for the lead but Michalski held on to the top spot.

Matt Campbell was working on Tim Glatfelter for fifth and took the position coming out of turn 2 on lap 5.

Montieth had caught Wilt and was on his bumper for third.

As the halfway point approached Michalski was closing in on lapped traffic. Krimes reeled in the leader as they worked through heavy lapped traffic.

Wilt moved into second on lap 13. As Michalski worked his way through lapped traffic, he was holding off Wilt, Montieth and Danny Dietrich as they all challenged him for the lead.

Wilt dove into turn 3 to try and take the lead and made contact with the leader Michalski as he attempted a slide job. Michalksi never stopped as Wilt sat in turn 2 backed into the outside wall to bring out the caution on lap 16.

Michalski maintained the lead as no cars had passed the flag stand before the yellow flag came out.

Michalski paced the field ahead of Montieth, Dietrich, Campbell and Krimes for the restart.

Michalski went high and Montieth went low going into turn 1. The bottom served Montieth well as he took the lead coming out of turn 2. Dietrich followed and took second coming out of turn 4.

The yellow flag flew on lap 18 for Brandon Rahmer who got spun around in turn 4.

With two laps to go Montieth led Dietrich, Campbell, Michalski and Krimes on the restart.

Dietrich drove to the top of turn 1 on the restart and took the lead coming out of turn 2 and held off Monteith down the back stretch.

The first Twin 20 of the night went to Dietrich who crossed the line 1.308 seconds ahead of Montieth. Campbell finished third and Krimes was fourth. Jim Siegel completed the top five.

After winning the first Twin 20 feature after starting 14th, Dietrich pulled the 8 pill for the inversion. The lined up Tim Glatfelter on the pole and Dietrich eighth for the start of the second feature.

Glatfelter led the field into turn 1 on the start with Justin Peck using the top to settle into second.

Michalski and Siegel battled for third with Siegel taking the spot on lap 2.

After Siegel got by Michalski, he had to fend off Dietrich and Montieth as they both tried to get into the top five. Dietrich took fifth coming out of turn 2 on lap 5. Montieth followed on the next lap, taking sixth from Michalski.

Lapped traffic came into play for Glatfelter on lap 6.

The caution flag flew on lap 7 for Glenndon Forsythe who fell off the pace and headed to the pits.

Glatfelter led Peck, Siegel, Campbell and Dietrich on the restart. Peck used the top of the turns on the restart as Glatfelter rolled through the bottom of turns 1 and 2.

Peck tried a slider on Glatfelter for the lead, but it didn’t stick.

Dietrich and Campbell drag raced down the back stretch for fourth with Dietrich taking the spot. Once again Montieth followed getting by Campbell as well.

The yellow came out again on lap 9 when Brandon Rahmer got out of sorts in turns 1 and 2.

Both Glatfelter and Peck went to the top on the restart allowing Glatfelter to pull away. Siegel tried to slide Peck for second but to no avail. Dietrich closed in and was up beside Siegel for third and took the spot on lap 11.

Again, Montieth followed Dietrich and took fourth after getting by Siegel. Montieth got high in turns 1 and 2 on the next lap allowing Siegel to take the spot back.

Dietrich was searching the track to try and make up some ground on the leaders.

Glatfelter entered lapped traffic with five laps to go. As the leaders worked their way through lapped traffic you could throw a blanket over the top three.

Dietrich and Peck were side by side at the line with two to go. Peck had the advantage at the line, but Dietrich took the spot going into turn 1.

Dietrich didn’t have much time to track down Glatfelter, but he caught the leader on the last lap and threw a slider in turn 4 winning the second Twin 20 feature in exciting fashion.

Glatfelter held on to finish second and Peck crossed the line third. Siegel finished fourth and Matt Campbell completed the top five.

With his sweep of both features, Dietrich earned a $750 Clean Sweep Bonus. $500 of the bonus was from Brooks Graphix and the Leiby family with Mamma’s Pizza of Wellsville putting up the additional $250.

Sprint car heat race winners were Scott Fisher, Brie Hershey and Brett Michalksi.

Jaiden Reyna Wins in Second Career Start on Dirt

Jaiden Reyna made the trip to Pennsylvania from North Carolina to field one of Joe Ryan Osborne’s cars at Lincoln on Saturday night. Reyna has been impressive on asphalt this year in the Young Lions division. Saturday was only Reyna’s second start on dirt in a Legend. The young gun was impressive all night and capped off his trip north with a victory.

Billy Workman Jr. drove by Chris Transeau and Reyna from third to take the lead on the start. The caution came out on lap 1 for Richie Dobson who got spun around coming out of turn 4.

Transeau and Reyna were side by side for second at the line on lap 2. Nikita Johnson joined the battle as Workman started pulling away from the rest of the field.

The yellow flag flew again on lap 7 when Taylor Watson came to a stop in turn 2.

Workman led Transeau, Reyna, Johnson and Seth Kearchner to the cone for the single-file restart.

Transeau stuck with Workman on the restart but the caution came out again on lap 8 when Ben Goldsmith spun out on the back stretch.

Reyna and Johnson were door to door at the line for third with Reyna holding the spot. Travis McClelland and Travis Perry were side by side behind Kearchner with both drivers challenging Kearchner for fifth.

Transeau and Reyna raced side by side on lap 11 for second. Transeau held the spot by a nose at the line on lap 12.

Reyna took the second spot using the top side of the track coming out of turn 2. Johnson followed also getting by Transeau. Transeau didn’t go quietly and took the spot back. Johnson stuck around and took third back from Transeau as Reyna caught Workman at the front of the field.

The caution came out on lap 15 as Workman and Reyna made contact as they battled for the lead. Workman ended up backwards in turn 3 as Reyna drove away from the incident without coming to a stop.

After inheriting the lead, Reyna led Johnson, Transeau, Kearchner and McClelland on the restart.

Johnson got his nose under Reyna as they drag raced down the back stretch side by side. Reyna held the lead by a nose on lap 16. The two continued to battle and Reyna’s advantage was even smaller on lap 17 at the line.

The battle at the front of the field allowed Transeau to move within striking distance making it a three way battle for the top spot.

Transeau got his nose under Johnson in an attempt to take second but couldn’t hold the advantage as they crossed the line as the laps wound down.

Reyna got to the checkered flag .743 seconds ahead of Johnson. Transeau held on to finish third with Kearchner crossing the line fourth. McClelland completed the top five.

In addition to winning the feature, Reyna picked up a $50 bonus from MRD Maintenance Solutions for having the fastest lap in the feature. Reyna had a lap time of 20.157 seconds.

Mike Racine earned the $50 hard charger award from Tuned Out Audio after driving from thirteenth to sixth in the main event.

Rahmer And Newlin Win On Wild Night At Williams Grove

9/4/20

Mechanicsburg – Freddie Rahmer scored his second 410 sprint car win on the season at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night in the Bob Stewart Tribute race, worth $5,012 to win.

Rahmer got the win by bolting past race-long leader Anthony Macri with just over two laps to go in the 25-lap main event.

In the 358 sprint main, Zach Newlin took his first ever win at the track in the division.

Anthony Macri started on the pole of the 410 sprint main flanked by Lucas Wolfe and when the green flag came out, fourth starter Brian Montieth flipped outside the first corner after losing a front wheel, causing an immediate red flag.

Only two laps were then recorded before a yellow flag bunched the field with Marcri leading Wolfe.

Third starter Rahmer got around Wolfe on the restart just before another red flag, this time for a turn one flip by Trenton Sheaffer.

Macri restarted with the lead over Rahmer and was still ahead when another yellow flag slowed the pace with just seven laps completed, this time for a slowed Danny Dietrich who had just taken third from Wolfe.

Yet another yellow flag regrouped the field on lap 11 but the final 14 circuits would end up going non-stop with Rahmer slowly but surely running down leader Macri.

Brent Marks would take third from Wolfe twice on laps 13 and 14 before finally making the move stick and entering the fray for the win before the finish.

Leader Macri entered traffic with seven laps to go but his undoing began on lap 22 when he skipped over the cushion in turn one as he set the car into the corner.

This allowed Rahmer to close the remaining distance between himself and Macri and when Macri again slipped up over the next time around, Rahmer was there to capitalize.

Rahmer followed Macri down the backchute as the pair headed for the two-to-go sign and then he swooped across the inside of the third and fourth turns to come up off of the corner alongside the leader.

A little right rear to left front contact in the blink of an eye found Macri edged out back to the line and Rahmer heading for the win.

However the front trio seemed to be faltering over the final two laps with no one able to get away from one another while sliding around on the track.

Marks did get Macri on the final circuit and was all over Rahmer to the finish, crossing the line just. .268 seconds behind at the checkers.

Macri was relegated to third followed by Wolfe and TJ Stutts.

Sixth through 10th went to Matt Campbell, Brian Brown, Danny Dietrich, Brock Zearfoss and Jeff Halligan.

Heats went to Macri, Stutts and Wolfe.

Rahmer set quick time over the field with a lap of 16.569 seconds.

The start of the 358 sprint main was immediately halted when Doug Hammaker hopped a right rear as the green fell before careening hard into the outside fence before flipping back into traffic as the field raced onto the frontstretch.

Hammaker and Kyle Denmyer made hard contact along with four other cars although there were no injuries.

Matt Findley would take the lead when action got going only to be stopped on lap four when Nat Tuckey flipped down the frontchute past the flagstand and again there were no injuries.

Another red flag ensued on the restart for a stopped Jacob Galloway.

Lap seven saw two cars connect in the first turn again hampering the pace.

Fourth starter Zach Newlin had taken second on lap six and on the lap seven restart he was working on Findley for the lead.

With his car working perfectly down low in the second corner, Newlin drove past Findley for control with 11 laps to go to head to the victory.

Derek Locke took second with six laps to go but failed to close in on the leader.

Findley rode home third followed by Chris Arnold and Dylan Norris.

Heats went to Zachary Cool, Findley, Arnold and Newlin with Kevin Nouse scoring the consolation race.

Feature Finishes, 9/4/20:

410 sprints, 25 laps: 1. Freddie Rahmer, 2. Brent Marks, 3. Anthony Macri, 4. Lucas Wolfe, 5. TJ Stutts, 6. Matt Campbell, 7. Brian Brown, 8. Danny Dietrich, 9. Brock Zearfoss, 10. Jeff Halligan, 11.

58th Annual Champion Racing Oil Williams Grove National Open Will Pay $75K To Win

East’s Premiere Sprint Car Event Boasts Growing Purse For Third Year In A Row!

Continued Biggest Payday In History Of Track And East Up For Grabs October 3

9/4/20

Mechanicsburg – The biggest and richest sprint car race in the East and in the history of Williams Grove Speedway just got bigger and even richer!

Speedway officials announced Friday night that the upcoming Williams Grove Speedway 58th annual National Open on October 3 will post $75,000 to the winner, up from 65K just one year ago.

The two-day World of Outlaws stand at Williams Grove Speedway for the Champion Racing Oil National Open is slated for October 2 and 3 with Friday’s 30-lap main paying $10,000 to win while Saturday’s 40-lap feature offers up the whopping 75K.

Just like in 2019, the 2020 Champion Racing Oil National Open at Williams Grove continues to be the biggest cash payday ever in the history of the oval and in the East, at $75,000.

And this season, the widely acclaimed event will indeed go down in history as the richest one-day event and biggest payday in sprint car racing across the nation, with Saturday’s one-event total purse alone eclipsing $135,000!

The premiere sprint car contest at the track since it began in 1963, the Williams Grove National Open first paid $25,000 to win in 2001 before jumping to $30,000 in 2002 and then to a monumental $50,000 in 2006.

The 2020 increase to the Champion Racing Oil National Open winner marks the third year in a row that Williams Grove Speedway has ramped up the prestigious event.

David Gravel pocketed $50,000 for the win in 2017 followed by $56,00 that went to winner Lance Dewease in 2018.

Last year’s winner, Brent Marks of Myerstown, took home $65,000 for the victory.

Save for two years when rains forced postponement, the World of Outlaws has sanctioned the prestigious Open every year since 1989.

The race went to 40 laps in 1993 with distances set at 50, 75, 100 and 150 laps at times since the event’s inception.

Hastings’ Michigan driver Gordon Johncock won the inaugural race.

Saturday, September 12 (7:30pm) Super Late Models + 358 Sprints (Summer Series) + PennMar Modifieds + EMMR Exhibition

Wednesday, September 16 (7:30pm) Weldon Sterner Memorial: 410 Sprints

Abbottstown, PA (August 29, 2020) – The Inaugural Kramer Klash saw the PA Posse pitted against the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions on Saturday night. After 35 laps of racing action an invader, not claimed by the Posse or the All Stars, scored the $7,300 win. Spencer Bayston, in the Swindell SpeedLab #39, scored his first Lincoln win and his third career All Star victory with his Kramer Klash title.

Bayston lined up on the pole with Danny Dietrich representing the PA Posse to his outside. The Posse was well represented on the second row with Brian Monteith and Chad Trout.

At the drop of the green Bayston took the lead. Freddie Rahmer was battling Trout for fourth allowing Aussie-driver, James McFadden to close in. Trout held off Rahmer to keep the spot.

Lapped traffic came into play on lap 4 and saw Dietrich closing in on the leader, Bayston.

The first caution of the race came on lap 6 when Josh Baughman came to a stop on the back stretch.

Bayston led Dietrich, Monteith, Trout and Rahmer to the cone for the single file restart. Bayston opted for the top of the track as did Montieth. Brian got a run on Dietrich using the top and challenged him for the runner-up spot.

The caution came out on the restart before the battle for second could get underway. McFadden bounced off the cushion in turn 4 and got turned around on the front stretch. McFadden made contact with bout Trout and Rahmer during the ordeal but neither car stopped so they both maintained their running order.

McFadden rejoined the field after utilizing time in the work area.

Once again Monteith used the top in turns 1 and 2 to gain on Dietrich but couldn't make the pass. After getting by Trout, Rahmer pulled a slide job on Monteith for third but it didn’t stick. Aaron Reutzel entered the battle for third as the leaders entered lapped traffic on lap 11.

Dietrich used lapped traffic to close in on Bayston. Montieth also took advantage of lapped traffic to track down Dietrich.

Reutzel got by Rahmer for third on lap 15. Lap 16 saw Dietrich right on Bayston’s bumper.

The top two were side by side for the lead at the line on lap 20. Zeb Wise got sideways coming out of turn 2 and collected Dietrich. Danny pulled a 360 spin and avoided coming to a stop despite the contact with Wise. Per All Star rules Dietrich had to tag the rear, as any car pulling a 360 is subject to the rule.

The top five for the restart were Bayston, Reutzel, Monteith, Rahmer and Trout. Montieth got under Reutzel to try and take second on the restart but Reutzel held the spot.

Tim Wagaman was on the move and got by Trout to enter the top 5. Two laps later he got by Rahmer coming out of turn 2 for fourth.

While the leaders maneuvered through lapped traffic Monteith was within striking distance of Reutzel once again for second.

The final caution of the race came on lap 33 when both Rahmer and Brent Marks had flat tires. Marks was running fifth after working through the field from his eighteenth starting spot. Rahmer was running sixth when the caution flag flew.

Reutzel, Montieth, Wagaman and Trout lined up behind Bayston for the green, white, checkered restart.

Reutzel went to the bottom of turns 1 and 2 to try and get by Bayston but Bayston was checked out.

Bayston took the checkered flag 1.005 seconds ahead of Reutzel for the Kramer Klash victory. Montieth held on to third. Wagaman finished fifth and Cory Eliason snuck into the top on the restart. After restarting at the rear of the field after his 360 field, Dietrich drove back for a sixth place finish.

Sprint car heat race winners were Troy Wagaman Jr, Tim Wagaman, Freddie Rahmer and Spencer Bayston.

Jeremy Ott Wires the Field for Legend Win

Dan Harrison and Jeremy Ott shared the front row for the 20-lap Central PA Legends feature. Ott took the lead going into turn 1 and Bill Diehl moved into second. As Harrison fell to fifth Alex Schmeidel moved into third.

Diehl battled Ott for the lead as Travis McClelland got by Schmeidel for third on lap three.

Diehl was trying to use the bottom to gain on Ott when the caution came out on lap 5 for Logan Carbaugh.

Ott led Diehl, McClelland, Schmeidel, and Mike Racine to the cone for the single file restart.

Diehl kept the pressure on Ott for the lead but the caution came out on the restart when Chris Transeau spun in turn 2.

Ben Goldsmith stopped in turn 4 bringing out another caution on lap 7.

Seth Kearchner was working hard on Racine to get in to the top 5 when another caution came on lap 10. Ron Little spun and came to a stop in turn 4.

Lincoln Kearchner was also a victim of turn 4 on lap 11 brining out the yellow flag.

Racine was going after Schmeidel for fourth and got the spot by a nose on lap 15. After the impressive battle Racine got out of shape going down the back stretch and fell back to sixth. Racine’s misfortune allowed Seth Kearchner to enter the top five.

Scott Spidle and Brandon Reiblich brought out the yellow flag on lap 18.

Ott paced the field ahead of Diehl, McClelland, Schmeidel and Kearchner for the restart. The caution came out on the restart for Reiblich, Spidle and Eric Hurst when they piled up going into turn 3.

Diehl took one last look to the inside of Ott after the green flag flew for the green, white, checkered finish. Ott held a half a car length advantage over Diehl at the line with the checkered flag in the air. McClelland crossed the line third. Schmeidel held on to fourth and Kearchner completed the top five.

~ Selinsgrove Speedway ~ A New Identity In Twenty-Twenty

Lance Dewease Scores Selinsgrove 5K Jack Gunn Memorial Saturday, Gives Owner Kreitz First Trip Back To Oval Winner’s Circle In 27 Years

Yoder and Lawton share stock car wins

8/29/20

Selinsgrove, Pa. – Lance Dewease of Fayetteville drove to victory in the 30-lap Jack Gunn Memorial for 410 sprint cars at Selinsgrove Speedway on Saturday night, scoring the $5,000 payday aboard the Don Kreitz Jr.-owned No. 69K for the 15th win of his career at the oval.

In the 20-lap limited late model main, Andrew Yoder of Middleburg scored for the third time this season at the track to pick up $1,200 for the win that was also his 10th overall of the season.

And in the roadrunner feature, Curtis Lawton raced with Jake Jones for the race right down to the final turn to get the win in the win.

Dewease started on the pole of the Jack Gunn Memorial for sprint cars flanked by Dylan Cisney and raced to stay ahead of Cisney as the pair jetted into the first turn when action began.

Dewease entered the rear of the field on the sixth tour and watched as Cisney darted to his inside as the pair rode into turn one.

However the leader was able to fend off the challenge and sling back around to hold command onto the backchute just before the first caution period of the race occurred on the same lap.

On the restart, Anthony Macri blasted under Cisney for second only to see Cisney sling around and reclaim the spot not once, but twice as the pair executed the same moves again the next time around.

The race was then again slowed with nine laps completed for a spin, finding Cisney, Macri, Brock Zearfoss and Mark Smith lined up for the new green.

Dewease avoided a challenge on the restart as Macri again went after Cisney only this time Macri proved successful, securing second on lap 11.

Jay Galloway then slowed with 17 laps to go, again bunching the field.

Dewease kept Macri at bay as the race went through the mid-stages and again entered traffic with six laps to go.

A final yellow flag slowed the pace with four laps to go only to see Dewease pull out to a 3.359 second advantage at the finish over Macri.

The checkered flag was Dewease’s first at the track since 2014 and it marked car owner Don Kreitz’s first trip to victory lane at the track in 27 years when he last took an oval win albeit as a driver.

Cisney was third followed by Zearfoss and Jeff Halligan.

Sixth through 10th went to TJ Stutts, Lucas Wolfe, Mark Smith, Justin Whittal and Kyle Reinhardt.

Heats went to Cisney and Macri.

Andrew Yoder was chased by Jared Fulkroad all through the limited late model main but Yoder proved flawless in the event.

For the last half of the race, the machines of Joe Lusk, Jim Yoder and Danny Snyder staged a three-way race for fourth with Yoder holding the spot at times.

In the end as Andrew Yoder took the win by .695 seconds over Fulkroad, Lusk and Jim Yoder rode home fourth and fifth with Mike Smith crossing the line in third.

Sixth through 10th went to Danny Snyder, Todd Snook, JR Toner, Kevin Probst and Matt Murphy.

Heats went to Andrew Yodeer, Toner and Harold Ranck.

Scott Dunham Jr. led the first two laps of the roadrunner main before fifth starter Curtis Lawton got control and began a battle with Jake Jones.

Jones went out front on lap five and then was pressured by Lawton the rest of the distance for the win.

The duo raced side by side for lap 11 and crossed the start/finish line in a dead heat for control.

Lawton then stuck inside Jones through the first turn and down the backstretch before clawing his way out front as the pair traversed the fourth corner.

Lawton then surged to the line to steal the win away from Jones.

Daren Rice finished third followed by Keith Bissinger and Dunham.

Heats went to Dunham and Rice.

DANNY “DOUBLE D” DIETRICH STEALS THUNDER CUP IN DRAMATIC FASHION; VONDOHREN CLAIMS MODIFIED WIN AT GRANDVIEW THUNDER THURSDAY

BECHTELSVILLE, PA – August 27, 2020 – A wild finish and wet weather highlighted a thrilling night of racing at Grandview Speedway, on Thursday, for the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series Thunder Cup presented by Levan Machine & Truck Equipment. Grandview Speedway and Thunder on the Hill pull off another upset, beating Mother Nature, her rain, thunder and lightning to complete the double header event by 11 PM. And the show was a thriller on an exceptionally well prepared and fast track. A field of twenty-five sprint cars and thirty-three modifieds were in the pits for the 139th Thunder on the Hill Racing Series event at Grandview.

In dramatic fashion, Danny Dietrich scored the Ollie’s All Star Circuit of Champions 410 Sprint Car victory, and Craig VonDohren won the NASCAR 358 Modified portion of the event.

Dietrich, of Gettyburg, PA, found himself in second place when the white flag waved, with Aaron Reutzel in the lead and on his way to a third-consecutive All Star win at Grandview Speedway. The leaders swapped the top spot on lap 20 of the feature with Reutzel regaining the lead from Dietrich. But on the final lap, with slower traffic ahead, the leaders made contract entering turn one. Dietrich took the lead and the contact sent Reutzel spinning in turn one displaying the yellow flag.

“There’s not really a lot to say,” Dietrich explained about the altercation during Victory Lane ceremonies. “Our car was good, and I wanted to win.”

A pair of previous winners led the field to the green flag with Reutzel starting on the pole of the 35-lap Thunder Cup A -Main and Freddie Rahmer starting in the second position.

At the drop of the green flag, Reutzel quickly darted to the lead and held command of the field for the first ten circuits while Dietrich, Rahmer, and Christopher Bell dueled for second spot behind him. Dietrich charged inside Rahmer for second, with Bell muscling his way around Rahmer into third just two laps later.

Dietrich and Bell didn’t let Reutzel out of their sights. As the No. 48 and the No. 39 rand down Reutzel’s No. 87, and waited to strike. With Bell on his tail, Dietrich charged outside Reutzel taking the top position on lap 20.

Traffic continued to be an obstacle for the leaders, with Reutzel maneuvering back into the lead just four circuits later.

Poised and waiting for the right opportunity, Dietrich hunted down Reutzel waiting for the All Star Series Point leader to make a mistake.

The white flag flew, indicating the final trip around the one-third-mile raceway. Heavy-footed, Dietrich motored into turn 1, making contact with Reutzel who spun. The caution left Reutzel to restart in the 20th position.

Dietrich would roll on through a green, white, checkered finish to claim the Thunder Cup win and the $5,000 prize money. Christopher Bell finished in second position, Freddie Rahmer in the third position, James McFadden in fourth, and Paul McMahan in fifth.

In the NASCAR 358 Modified main event, Boyertown, PA’s Craig VonDohren battled with Reading, PA’s Doug Manmiller to win the 30 lap, $3,000 to win main event.

Justin Grim started second and led the early stages of the event before Manmiller took control on the third circuit, with VonDohren following into the second position.

VonDohren claimed the top spot on the 6th lap dueling with Manmiller side-by-side.

In the end, VonDohren would sail on to victory, his seventh career Thunder on the Hill win. Manmiller would settle for second position, Brett Kressley finished in third, Billy Pauch, Jr. in fourth, and Mike Gular finishing in the fifth spot.

A brief rain shower slowed the action during NASCAR 358 Modified qualifying. The track crew worked vigorously to maintain control of the one-third-mile clay oval, and the storm only saw a 30-minute delay. An exercise too often displayed at the Thunder on the Hill events.

Special thanks to the fans and race teams who once again supported all the efforts and displayed outstanding cooperation to get this show completed. We also thank Levan Machine and Truck Equipment of Fleetwood, PA for their support and efforts. It was truly a big win in getting this show completed.

Five Different Drivers Claim Feature Victories During Bobby Rahal Toyota of Lewistown “Five Times The Fun, One Hot Night”

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway-PORT ROYAL, Penn. (August 23, 2020)- Five different drivers picked up feature wins Saturday night as part of the Bobby Rahal Toyota Lexus of Lewistown ‘Five Times the Fun, One Hot Night’.

With rain foiling racing plans throughout much of August and limited dates available for make-ups, the Speedway took on the daunting task of holding five features for three divisions in one night.

Anthony Macri kicked off the evening by picking up his fifth Port Royal Speedway feature win of 2020 during the 14th Annual Living Legends Dream Race make-up feature from early August. Macri bested track points leader Logan Wagner and Lance Dewease by 1.855 seconds to claim the checkered flag and the $10,000 prize.

Logan Wagner and Brock Zearfoss led the field to the green flag, with Wagner getting the early jump and leading lap one. Dewease followed suit into second in the opening turn, while Macri went from sixth to fourth on the opening circuit.

Two laps later Macri pulled under Zearfoss exiting turn two to move into third, but his momentum was halted when fifth-place starter Tyler Bear came to a stop on the backstretch with a small fire the following lap.

Wagner held off a slide job attempt by Dewease on the restart, which allowed Macri to gain momentum on Dewease. He traded sliders with Dewease the following lap, but Dewease held off the charge.

Three laps later the red flag flew when Paulie Colagiovanni got upside down exiting turn two and collected Kody Lehman and Drew Ritchey.

Wagner once again held off a slide-job attempt from Dewease on the restart, but this time Macri capitalized and after a brief swap of positions, claimed the runner-up spot at the flag stand on lap 11. Over the next four laps, Macri cut Wagner’s lead in half and with the leader struggling in lap traffic, he was heavy in pursuit on lap 16.

That same lap, Wagner made contact with the lap car of Dustin Baney entering turn three and Macri closed within .02 seconds. He tried a slide job in turn’s one and two on lap 18, but Wagner pulled away down the backstretch. But lap traffic once again proved to be the X-Factor when Wagner followed the car of Lehman into turn 1, allowing Macri to slide under him to take the lead.

Two laps later the final caution of the race flew when Steve Buckwalter slowed in turn four with a flat tire. Jared Eshs also came to a stop on the Speedway while under yellow. Both cars would rejoin the field.

However, with clean air at his expense, Macri pulled away on the restart. By lap 25 he held a 2.5 second advantage and he would go onto claim the checkered flag without any challenge. Wagner held on for second with Dewease, Brent Marks and Zearfoss making up the top five. Tyler Reeser earned the $350 hard charger award.

“It feels good to get finally get a win as we have been in a bit of a slump here lately,” said Macri. “We destroyed a car out at Knoxville and junked some stuff last night so hopefully this $10,000 check helps to pay some bills.”

Wagner made up for the disappointment as he took the checkered flag in the second Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Car event of the night for his first win of the 2020 racing season. Wagner held off Dylan Cisney and his father Mike Wagner to claim the $4000 checkered flag in what was a makeup from the August 15th program.

Wagner and Cisney led the field to the green with Wagner once again jumping out to the point. Setting a torrid pace, Wagner hit lap traffic on lap seven and was furiously weaving in and out of lap traffic determined not to let this one slips away. By lap eight Wagner’s lead was around 1.4 seconds, but with five to go he was nearly 2.0 seconds ahead.

With two laps remaining, Cisney was closing in on Wagner, but with the feature only being 20 laps in distance, Cisney ran out of time as Wagner took the checkered flag by .850 seconds.

Cisney, Mike Wagner, Lucas Wolfe and Blane Heimback made up the top five. TJ Stutts went from 19th to s10th to earn a $600 hard charger award courtesy of Mike Cleck Paving and Valley Supply.

“We’ve been really close this year and it’s nice to finally park this Zemco Sprint Car in victory lane,” said Wagner. “I wish we were talking about the first one and $10,000, but we’ll take it and keep building toward the end of the season.”

Blane Heimbach capped off a consistent night by picking up the final Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Car night for his first Port Royal Speedway victory of the season. Heimbach bested Logan Wagner and Ryan Taylor to claim 14th career victory at the Juniata County oval.

Jeff Miller and Taylor led the field to the green flag with Taylor jumping out to the early lead. By lap five Taylor held a 3.0 second advantage over Heimbach, who had moved into the runner up spot one lap prior form his third starting position.

With 10 laps to go, Heimbach was cutting into the advantage and by lap 13 he was on the tail tank of Taylor. Taylor, who had been running the top of the speedway, tried to protect the bottom, but Heimbach was able his muscle his way inside entering turn 1 and he exited turn two with the lead on lap 14.

Meanwhile Logan Wagner, who started eighth, had moved up to the third position and with three to go he moved into second. He tried to make a last-ditch effort to catch Heimbach but got bottled up in lap traffic on the white flag lap which allowed Heimbach to cruise to the checkered flag by 1.728 seconds for the $4000 victory.

Wagner, Taylor, Dylan CIsney and Lucas Wolfe completed the top five and Wagner was the races hard charger worth $600 courtesy of Mike Cleck Paving and Valley Supply.

“Anybody who knows us knows it hasn’t been an easy year at all, so this one is pretty special,” said Heimbach. “We were pretty good all night and I felt like we kept gaining on it after each race. It’s just nice to be able to reward the people who stick behind you and believe in you.”

In Penns Valley Meat Market PA Sprint Series 305 Sprint Car division action, Nick Sweigart capitalized on a pole starting position to lead all 20 laps and pick up his second victory of the 2020 race season at the Port Royal Speedway.

“Nitro Nick” lead the field to the green flag and he jumped out to the early lead over second-place starter Kirsten Hess. Series points leader Garrett Bard used the outside of the speedway to go from seventh to fourth on the opening circuit as well.

Third-place starter Doug Dodson moved into the runner-up position on lap four, but the caution flew for two slow cars in turn’s one and two to slow any momentum.

Dodson tried a slider entering turn one on the restart, but Sweigart pulled away easily exiting turn two. The following lap Bard moved into third and with the leaders burried in lap traffic, he moved into second on lap 14.

Bard attempted to track down the leader over the final six laps but could never mount a serious charge and Sweigart took the checkered flag by 1.470 seconds. The win was his his fourth career triumph at the “Speed Palace” and came over Bard, Dave Grube, Dodson and Domenic Melair.

“Starting up front was definitely key and wasn’t going to let the opportunity be wasted,” said Sweigart. “I love racing here and it’s just so cool to be standing here surrounded by a great crew and family and friends.”

Finally, Alex Bright held off Steven Drevicki to claim his first career Port Royal Speedway in the first ever visit of the USAC East Coast Sprint CarsWingless 360 Sprint Cars to the Port Royal Speedway.

358 regular Kevin Nouse and Shawn Donath led the field to the green flag with Donath jumping out to the early lead. Bright started fourth and was on the move early as he used the top of the track to take second and the following lap, he took the lead.

Fifth-place starter Drevicki entered the picture one lap later as he moved into the second position and on lap nine, he poked his nose to the inside of Bright in turn one and two. On lap 10 he pulled even with Bright heading to the start-finish line and Drevicki threw a huge slider entering turn to take the point briefly, before Bright powered back by down the backstretch.

The leaders battled nose to tail over the next three laps before the caution flew for a spinning car in turn one brought out the caution.

The field stayed the same over the next handful of laps before a caution came out with one too go setting up a one lap dash to the checkered flag. Drevicki tried another slidejob attempt on the restart, but Bright was too good and he powered home to the checkered flag by a .510 margin over Drevicki, Davie Franek, Billy Vaninwegen and Chris Allen Jr.

“This is only our third time out in this deal, and I’ve got to say this feels pretty darn good,” said Bright. “It was like the old days with me and Steven throwing sliders out there and it was just a lot of fun.”

Abbottstown, PA (August 22, 2020) – Dean’s Auto Plaza Night was action packed with four features and solid car counts across the three divisions, 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints and Mid Atlantic Modifieds.

Scott Fisher, who was one of three drivers racing in both the 410 and 358 divisions, started on the pole of the 30-lap feature. 2019 Rookie of the year, Trey Hivner lined up second.

Fisher led the field into turn 1 on the start with Jordan Givler moving into second. Givler used the top of the track to reel in Fisher and take the lead at the line on lap 2.

Chad Trout, who was running with a bruised elbow after taking a wild ride Friday night, got by Fisher for second on lap 3.

Danny Dietrich was picking off cars and got up to fourth from his ninth starting spot on lap 4.

Trout was closing in on Givler for second. Dietrich caught Fisher going down the back stretch on lap 5 to take third. Dietrich had his sight set on the leaders and was using the bottom line around the track to reel them in.

Trout continued to close in on Givler as Dietrich hunted them down. The top three, Givler, Trout and Dietrich, were under a blanket on lap 9. Dietrich got by Trout for second on lap 10 and made quick work of Givler taking the lead going into turn 3 on the same lap.

The fist caution of the race came on lap 11 when Hivner got spun around in turn 2. Hivner rejoined the field.

Dietrich paced the field ahead of Givler, Trout, Fisher and Landon Myers for the restart.

Trout took second coming out of turn 4 on the restart and Matt Campbell got by Givler to take third.

Dietrich’s 3.269 second lead over Trout was erased when the yellow flag came out on lap 16. Glenndon Forsythe and Brian Montieth got together on the front stretch. Forsythe rejoined the field but the eight-time track champion, Montieth headed to the pits ending his night.

Freddie Rahmer was on the move making his way to fifth on the restart and then fourth on lap 18.

As Dietrich approached lapped traffic with 10 laps to go, he had a 2.164 second advantage over Trout.

As the laps wound down a three car battle for fifth between Givler, Chase Dietz and Tim Glatfelter was well under way. Dietz hit the wall in turn 2 giving the spot back to Givler for a moment but Dietz rebounded and took the spot for good.

Rahmer continued to work his way towards the front of the field and got by Campbell for third with four laps to go. Campbell didn’t let Rahmer pull away and continued to challenge Freddie to take the spot back.

Dietrich won his third feature in a row and his fifth of the season 2.665 seconds ahead of Trout. Rahmer held on to finish third. Campbell crossed the line fourth and Dietz completed the top five.

410 heat winners were Scott Fisher, Chad Trout and Trey Hivner.

Tyler Ross Races to Victory in August 1 Make-up Feature

Of the 27 cars slated to start the 358 Sprint make-up feature from August 1, 25 cars made the call. CJ Tracy and John Sharpe were the two drivers that were not in attendance.

Alyson Dietz and Kenny Kuhn shared the front row for the first event of the night.

Dietz led the field into turn 1 for the 20-lap feature. Kuhn got his nose under Dietz in the corners, but Dietz held on to lead lap 1.

The first caution of the race came on lap 4 when Mark VanVorst came to a stop on the front stretch.

Wyatt Hinkle came to a stop during the caution and was towed off the front stretch as well.

Dietz led Steve Owings, Justin Foster, Kuhn and Tyler Ross to the cone for the restart.

Owings was all over Dietz for the lead when the caution came out for Jon Stewart who got turned around in turn 3 on lap 5. The caution quickly turned to red flag conditions when Kody Hartlaub rolled on his side in turn 2.

Kuhn who had been running fourth was also stopped in turn 2 with a flat tire.

Once again, the field lined up behind Dietz for the single file restart. Zachary Cool came to a stop on the back stretch as the field lined up for the restart bringing out the yellow flag. Billy Heltzel also came to a stop.

On the second attempt Owings used the bottom of 1 and 2 to get by Dietz for the lead. Brett Wanner got in to the top 5.

Owings entered lapped traffic on lap 9.

Tyler Ross dove under Dietz in turn 3 for second but it didn't stick, and Dietz held the spot.

Heltzel brought out the caution on lap 10 when he stopped in turns 3 and 4.

Owings paced the field ahead of Dietz, Ross, Foster and Wanner for the restart.

Scott Fisher, Cody Fletcher and Todd Rittenhouse Jr. got stacked up in turn 4 on the restart bringing out another caution.

Ross got by Owings for the lead in turn 2 on lap 12. Ross maintained his advantage over Owings in lapped traffic and drove to his second win of the season.

Owings crossed the line second and Wanner finished third. Dietz was fourth and Brett Strickler completed the top five.

Chris Arnold Back in Victory Lane

Chris Arnold pulled double-duty on Saturday night, running both the 410 and 358 sprint car divisions. Arnold lined up sixth for the 20-lap feature and was searching for his first win since June 24, 2017.

Jon Stewart started on the pole with Alyson Dietz to his outside.

Stewart and Dietz were side by side going into turn 1 with Stewart getting the advantage and leading lap 1.

Arnold was up to third on lap 2 and challenged Dietz for second. Arnold took the position on lap 3. Arnold went straight to work tracking down Stewart for the lead. Chris slid Jon on lap 7 to take the top spot.

Jeff Rohrbaugh entered the top 5 on lap 7 and was working his way to the front of the field.

Arnold was pulling away and had a 1.5 second lead at the half-way point.

Mason Chaney did a 360 spin in turn 3 and kept going, but his acrobatics collected Rohrbaugh and Scott Fisher bringing out the caution on lap 13.

Arnold led Stewart, Dietz, Zane Rudisill and Steve Owings for the restart. Rudisill went to the top of turns 1 and 2 but couldn’t get by Dietz for third.

The caution came out on the restart for Matt Findley who stopped on the back stretch.

Rudisill tried the top again along with Owings but to no avail.

Tyler Ross, who won the first 358 feature of the night, made a big move getting to fourth but quickly fell off the pace bringing out the caution. The yellow turned to red when Wanner landed on his side in turn 2. Rudisill was also involved. Rudisill had been running fourth before Ross took the spot, Wanner was sixth on the last lap that was scored.

Owings used the top to get by Dietz for third, but the caution came out again when Wanner got turned around going into turn 1.

Once again Owings went to the top on the restart but this time, he couldn’t get by Dietz for third.

Brett Strickler running was running fifth and spun out in turn 2 bringing out the yellow on lap 16. Dylan Orwig and Jordan Strickler were also involved.

The caution flag flew on lap 7 for George Gutridge.

Altobelli paced the field for the restart ahead of Arnold, Householder, Kling and Hughes.

Cullum was looking to work his way into the top five, but Ray Kable had different plans. Kable was side by side for sixth with Cullum. Kable had the advantage going into turn 3 on lap 9 and made the pass at the line.

Cullum was still within striking distance until Kable raced his way to fourth.

Once again Altobelli and Arnold were pulling away from the rest of the field. Kable worked his way to third on lap 12.

Altobelli was being challenged by Arnold for the lead when the caution came out on lap 13 for Joey Polevoy who stopped in turn 2.

Kable stayed with the leaders on the restart, but the caution came out before he could make anything happen.

A pile-up of five cars in turn 2 was the cause of the yellow flag. Haley Kaiser, Alyssa Rowe, Chase Butler, Jason Saga and Chris Cogan were involved.

Kable challenged Arnold for second with five laps to go. Cullum made his way into the top five on lap 17.

The final caution of the race came with two laps to go when Doug Ostwald and Jason Saga spun around in turns 3 and 4.

The field lined up behind Altobelli for a green, white, checkered finish.

Kable was closing in on Arnold when the white flag flew but couldn’t make the pass.

Altobelli crossed the line head of Arnold, Kable, Brad Kling and Cullum.

Selinsgrove To Honor Career And Legacy Of Jack Gunn Saturday

8/23/20

Selinsgrove, Pa –Selinsgrove Speedway will honor one of the greatest promoters of all time coming up this Saturday, August 29 with the 40th annual running of the Jack Gunn Memorial for Modern Heritage 410 Sprint Cars at 7:30 pm.

The race will go 30 laps and pay $5,000 to the winner.

For the first time in 20 years on Saturday, the race will be contested as a 410 sprint car event.

First run in 1981 at Selinsgrove and won by Lynn Paxton, the Gunn Memorial honors late Selinsgrove promoter Jack Gunn, a native of Hancock, Maryland.

Gunn was a Hall of Fame Promoter who heralded the speedway as announcer and promoter during the 1970s.

After his untimely death from cancer at the age of 48 in 1980, Gunn was honored nationally as the 1979 Promoter of the Year.

Having started out as an announcer in the area in the early 1960s, Gunn honed his skill on the microphone while eventually relaying his talents into promoter at Selinsgrove as well as at other area speedways.

It was during his tenure at the helm of Selinsgrove and other tracks like Williams Grove, Penn National and Hagerstown, Maryland, that Gunn rose to prominence on the local and national scene while taking his tracks along for the ride.

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

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

And it’s that power and reputation that Selinsgrove has honored with the Gunn Memorial each and every season since 1981.

Run as a 410 sprint car race through the 2000 season, no one has won the Gunn Memorial more at Selinsgrove than Todd Shaffer of Millerstown who scored four times in the event.

Keith Kauffman is a three-time winner.

Run as a 358 sprint event from 2001 – 2008, Blane Heimbach proved victorious three times during the time period.

The race has been contested as a 360 sprint contest since 2009 with Mark Smith, Trevor Lewis and Davie Franek each taking two wins during the run.

Kyle Reinhardt, already a super sprint winner at the track this season, is the defending Selinsgrove Gunn Memorial winner, aboard a 360 sprint car.

Twin Purses Offer Over $20,000 Each And $4,000 To Win

Sprints-Only Program Closes August At Oval

8/23/20

Mechanicsburg – Williams Grove Speedway will present the Jack Gunn Memorial Twin 20s for the All Stars Circuit of Champions Sprint Cars Series this Friday, August 28 at 7:30 pm.

The exciting event will be a sprints only program with gates for the big program opening at 5:30 pm.

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

Time trials will set the heat starting grids while the winner of the first 20-lap main event will draw for an inversion to start the second feature event.

Inversion possibilities will be four, six, eight, 10 or 12.

Fast Tees Screenprinting of Thompsontown will pay $300 to set fast time over the field.

Both 20-lap feature events will carry full points toward the 2020 Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint car Williams Grove Speedway track title.

Brent Marks of Myerstown is the current Williams Grove Speedway point leader.

Event sponsor Union Quarries of Carlisle is one of the top stone, concrete and blacktop producing companies in the region.

Union Quarries has been providing materials to Adams County, York County, Perry County and throughout the area since 1961.

Learn more about the company by visiting www.unionquarries.com.

The All Stars will again be led into Williams Grove by series point leader Aaron Reutzel of Clute, Texas, who has six wins under this belt on the circuit this year.

Last year, Reutzel drove to victory in the first Gunn Memorial twin 20 and by doing so he became the first ever All Stars touring driver to win a main event at Williams Grove Speedway since the series first raced there in 1970.

Reutzel is going for his third All Stars circuit title in a row in 2020.

Californian Cory Eliason holds down second in All Stars season points followed by Zeb Wise

Following Reutzel’s win in the first Gunn Memorial twin last year, Lance Dewease came back to score the second of the twins but then Reutzel rallied again in September for another All Stars win at the track.

Thus, the locals known as the Pennsylvania Posse now hold a 35-3 record of victory against the touring stars as they again prepare to take on Williams Grove Speedway.

Invading independent Kyle Larson scored an All Stars win at Williams Grove in July of this season and in total Larson holds 12 this year in series action.

After the August 28 racing program, the All Stars Circuit of Champions will return to Williams Grove on Friday, September 18 to contest the Dirt Classic Qualifier.

The August 28 twin 20s will be another race in the 2020 Hoosier Diamond Series of races at the track.

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

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

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

Gunn was feted nationally as 1979 Promoter of the Year.

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

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

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

Gates will open at 5:30 pm.

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

Williams Grove And Selinsgrove Speedways Team To Present “Back-To-Back-For-Jack Bonus Challenges” For Jack Gunn Memorials Effort Offers Thousands In Bonus Money For 410 Sprint Drivers This Week! Hoseheads.com & Modern Heritage sponsor special promotion

8/23/20

Mechanicsburg – Williams Grove and Selinsgrove Speedways have joined forces to offer the Hoseheads.com & Modern Heritage “Back-To-Back-For-Jack 410 Sprint Car Bonus Challenges”, coming up at both speedways this Friday and Saturday, August 28 and 29, in conjunction with each oval’s Jack Gunn Memorial races.

A native of Hancock, Maryland, late promoter Jack Gunn held tenure at both facilities at times between the 1960s and the 1970s to much success and since the early 1980s, both historic venues have staged memorial races in honor of Gunn and his promotional prowess.

So when fate found both Williams Grove and Selinsgrove Speedways planning to stage their annual Gunn Memorials on back to back nights in 2020, the two-night races seemed to call for a little extra promotion, just as Gunn would have done.

On Friday night, Williams Grove will host twin 20-lap mains paying $4,000 each in honor of Gunn while Saturday’s Selinsgrove show offers a 30-lap main paying $5,000 to the winner.

If one driver can sweep both of the Gunn Memorial twin 20s at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, the track itself will award a $2,000 bonus to the lucky driver giving him an even 10K and that hot shoe will then have a chance to compete for more bonus money in the “Back-To-Back-For-Jack-Bonus-Challenge,” sponsored by Hoseheads.com sprint car internet website and Modern Heritage of Mifflinburg.

The “Back-To-Back-For-Jack Bonus Challenge” will find a $3,000 bonus in effect should the sweeper of the Williams Grove twins go on to score the 30-lap, $5,000 to win Gunn Memorial at Selinsgrove Speedway on Saturday night, pushing his total three-race winnings to an even $18,000 to include a total 5K bonus for the hat trick!

But that’s not all!

If two different drivers motor to victory on Friday in the twin 20s at Williams Grove and either one of those drivers can claim victory on Saturday night at Selinsgrove Speedway, he will pick up an extra $1,000 in the Hoseheads.com & Modern Heritage “Back-To-Back-For-Jack Bonus Challenge”, leveling that driver’s two-race winnings at $10,000.

And that’s not bad Jack, no matter how you look at!

Gates for Friday’s Williams Grove Speedway show open at 5:30 pm with time trials slated for 7:30.

Saturday gates at Selinsgrove Speedway open at 5 with racing slated for 7:30.

Since opening in late 2019, Modern Heritage is a region leader in kitchen and bathroom custom design work and installation, "Creating Beautiful and Timeless Spaces.” Offering not only full design and installation services, Modern Heritage carries full lines of flooring and cabinetry for every customer’s needs at its showroom located in Mifflinburg. www.modernheritage.style

Very few tracks present shows with two star-studded divisions. After a series of qualifying events, the Modifieds will battle in a 30 lap feature paying $3,000 to win. The talent-filled field is expected to include Craig VonDohren, Duane Howard, Jeff Strunk, Brett Kressley, Rick Laubach, Doug Manmiller, Jared Umbenhauer, Mike Gular, Colt Harris, Kevin Hirthler and Mike Lisowski.

Freddie Rahmer Scores First Of Year In Williams Grove Sprints, Sheppard Bags World Of Outlaws Late Models Second Year Running

8/21/20

Mechanicsburg – Freddie Rahmer of Salfordville scored his first sprint car win of the season at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, taking the lead from Chase Dietz with 10 laps to go in the 25-lap main to record the 11th victory of his career at the track.

In the 40-lap World of Outlaws Late Models main, Brandon Sheppard of New Berlin, Illinois, scored the $10,000 flag to flag win for the second year in a row at the track.

The start of the 410 sprint car main was marred by a seven car crash on the frontstretch that saw two cars flip with Robbie Kendall flipping into the base of the flagstand while Chad Trout destroyed his mount just behind.

Other cars involved included Steve Buckwalter, Trenton Sheaffer, Brent Marks, Brian Montieth and Kyle Moody.

Trout was being evaluated for a possible elbow injury following the crash.

When action restarted, Jordan Givler led the first lap before fourth starter Chase Dietz took over by slipping underneath in the first corner.

Jason Solwold followed Dietz into second on the third circuit.

By lap six when Matt Campbell slowed on the track, Rahmer was up to third after lining up eighth for the restart following the initial start melee.

Rahmer went to work on Solwold when action resumed, taking second spot away with eight laps down and by that time Dietz had built up a 2.29 second lead over the field.

Rahmer steadily chipped away at the advantage over the ensuing laps and had the gap down to .865 seconds when a final caution flag unfurled with 12 laps to go.

Dietz would lead only one more lap after the restart as Rahmer darted low in the first turn on lap 15 to take command over the cushion-running leader.

Dietz raced back to Rahmer’s inside as the pair shot down the backstretch but Rahmer pulled away out of turn four with the point.

Danny Dietrich, who came to the stripe 12th on the restart after the initial start crash, muscled by Dietz for second with eight laps to go but failed to challenge Rahmer for the win.

Rahmer’s advantage at the finish was 1.060 seconds over Dietrich, Dietz, Solwold and Steve Buckwalter.

Sixth through 10th went to TJ Stutts, Kyle Reinhardt, Kyle Moody, Lucas Wolfe and Adrian Shaffer.

Heats went to Givler, Brent Shearer and Solwold.

Five caution flags hampered the pace in the World of Outlaws Late Models main but no matter how many times leader Brandon Sheppard had to deal with a restart he proved untouchable for the $10,000 payday.

Polesitter Cade Dillard chased Sheppard until with eight laps to go he slipped over the turn two cushion and lost several spots.

This moved Gregg Satterlee into second who had been running third since lap 11.

After starting 13th, Rick Eckert motored into fourth on lap 16 and he would assume third as Dillard took his trip over the cushion.

Mason Zeigler started fourth and raced inside the top five the entire distance to end up fourth with Gene Knaub coming home in fifth.

Sheppard took the win by .787 seconds over Satterlee.

Sixth through 10th in the main went to Ashton Winger, Darrell Lanigan, Chase Junghans, Dan Stone and Jeff Rine.

Heats went to Zeigler, Lanigan, Sheppard and Dillard with twin consolations going to Kyle Lee and Rine.

Brent Larson set fast time over the 39 car field with a lap of 19.773 seconds.

Feature Finishes, 8/21/20:

410 sprints, 25 laps: 1. Freddie Rahmer, 2. Danny Dietrich, 3. Chase Dietz, 4. Jason Solwold, 5. Steve Buckwalter, 6. TJ Stutts, 7. Kyle Reinhardt, 8. Kyle Moody, 9. Lucas Wolfe, 10.

THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES

LEVAN MACHINE & TRUCK EQUIPMENT PRESENT 410 SPRINT & MODIFIED DOUBLEHEADER. . . . .

RYAN TAYLOR EYES FIRST THUNDER WIN WHEN TONY STEWART’S ALL-STAR CIRCUIT OF CHAMPIONS INVADE GRANDVIEW THURSDAY, AUGUST 27

BECHTELSVILLE, PA AUGUST 18, 2020 . . . . . . The 410 Sprints will make their final visit of the year at Grandview Speedway on Thursday night, August 27 when Tony Stewart’s Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions team up with the 358 Modifieds as part of the Thunder on the Hill Racing Series presented by Levan Machine & Truck Equipment.

Both divisions will compete in qualifying events leading up to the 35 lap Thunder Cup paying $5,000 to win for the 410 Sprint feature and a 30 lap 358 Modified feature paying $3,000 to win. Gates open at 5 PM with race time set for 7:30 PM.

One 410 sprint driver looking to claim his first Thunder on the Hill victory is Ryan Taylor of nearby Mertztown, PA. Taylor started his racing career in the open-wheel karts at Oreville, and he credits his Dad for teaching him the basics. He progressed his driving career advancing to the slingshots then on to the modifieds at Grandview and Bridgeport. Somewhat exhausted of the weekly repairs needed to a modified, at age 18, Ryan made a move to the 410 sprints, and in Ryan’s words, “It was the best racing decision I’ve made yet!”

“Grandview is the track I grew up at, going there as a child, it holds a special place to me.” Taylor continued, “ I’ve raced modifieds at Grandview for a season and got to know many familiar faces.”

“To me, Grandview is one of my favorite places to run a sprint car. I think the track configuration provides a very fast-paced race with lots of traffic and passing, which is great for the fans and drivers alike.” Ryan describes Grandview this way, " It’s the right length straightaways for the right width corners with the right banking to provide wide-open racing early on at high speeds, with slick fun to slide on the surface at the end of the night."

Sponsors play a big part in the on-going success of this race team, and Ryan is quick to recognize Abreu Vineyards, CP=Carrillo, and Wilwood Racin. “Winning the Thunder Cup would be a huge win for myself, there are a lot of family and friends that come to Grandview to watch us race, and it would be nice to pick up a win there in this race. There sure would be a lot of celebrating going on!”

Winning will be no easy task with Aaron Reutzel of Clute, TX, in the field. He won the last two All Star events at Grandview, he is the defending All Series Champion and currently leads the 2020 point chase. Expected entries include Cory Eliason of Valisia, CA, Paul McMahan of Nashville, TN, Zeb Wise of Angola, IN, and Josh Baughman, Odessa, TX. Some home town favorites looking to chase the $5,000 first prize include Freddie Rahmer, Danny Dietrich, Anthony Macri, Alan Krimes, Brandon Rahmer, Brock Zearfoss, and Kyle Reinhardt, to name a few.

The thrilling 358 NASCAR Modifieds are the charm of Grandview Speedway every Saturday night. They never disappoint the fans when they are on a Thunder on the Hill Racing Series event. Very few tracks present shows with two star-studded divisions. After a series of qualifying events, the Modifieds will battle in a 30 lap feature paying $3,000 to win. The talent-filled field is expected to include Craig VonDohren, Duane Howard, Jeff Strunk, Brett Kressley, Rick Laubach, Doug Manmiller, Jared Umbenhauer, Mike Gular, Colt Harris, Kevin Hirthler and Mike Lisowski.

Breaking News- Bobby Rahal Toyota of Lewistown Presents “5 Times the Fun, 1 Hot Night”

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Penn.- (August 17, 2020) As rain has plagued the Port Royal Speedway throughout the month of August, the Speedway promotional team was left with the daunting task of figuring out how to reschedule events with limited dates available.

Originally a feature only schedule was pitched and approved for the Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Car division for this coming weekend (8/22/20). However, after much discussion with drivers, teams and the input of the fans, we have ultimately decided to run a full program for the 410 Sprint Cars to go along with two make-up features, plus the regularly scheduled PASS/IMCA 305 Sprint Car event and the USAC East Coast wingless 360 series event.

This means 5 Feature events in 1 night!!!

To accommodate such an event, the gates will now be opening at 3pm EST, with racing beginning at 6pm EST.

Admission Prices will be as follows- $20 GA, $10 Students, $30 Pits. The previously discussed $100 incentive for the 410 drivers has been scrapped as well with the addition of the full night’s program. Rain checks will not be honored from the make-up shows as all qualifying programs were completed, but there is no additional cost to the evening’s admission for the extra racing.

The Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Cars will kick off the night with the $4000/win make-up feature event from 8/15/20 at 6:00pm. There will be no alternates used for this feature as the field had already taken the green flag prior to rain hitting the speedway.

Following the completion of the feature event, the 410 Sprint Cars, Penns Valley Meat Market PASS/IMCA 305 Sprint Cars and the USAC East Coast Wingless 360 Sprint Cars will all partake in full programs with heat races/B-mains.

At the completion of all the qualifying events, we will run the make-up feature from the 8/1/20 14th Annual Living Legends Dream Race. The race pays $10,000 to win and $500 to start. The total purse for the Dream Race feature is over a staggering $35,000 and is the highest in the state for an unsanctioned event. The feature line-up has already been set with 26 starters. If any of those starters can’t make it, alternatives will be used. Those eligible in order are Michael Bauer, Dustin Baney, Richard Cisney, Landon Myers and Tyler Reeser.

Following that feature event, the PASS/IMCA 305 Sprint Cars will run their feature, followed by the USAC East Coast Wingless 360 Series feature and finally the night’s regularly scheduled Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Car feature.

We fully understand that this is unique and possibly overwhelming. As previously stated, with limited dates available and with a need to reschedule multiple events, this is the best possible way of doing things to benefit the drivers, fans and sponsors alike. We will be working throughout the night to move the program along.

We look forward to seeing you Saturday night for “Five Times the Fun” and ask that you continue to practice social distancing guidelines. Marks are encouraged, but not required and sanitizing stations remain throughout the facility for your use. If you do not feel well, PLEASE STAY HOME and view racing via www.FloSports.com.

Please stay tuned to our various social media outlets and website www.portroyalspeedway.com for any additional changes and we appreciate you remaining flexible during challenging times!

Marks Gets To Williams Grove Victory Lane, Locke And Drevicki Round Out Trio Of Winners

8/14/20

Mechanicsburg – A total of 74 sprint cars jammed the Williams Grove Speedway pit area on Friday night for a rare three-division open wheel program at the track that saw Brent Marks score the 410 sprint car win while Derek Locke took the 358 sprints and Steve Drevicki copped the USAC East 360 sprint main.

Marks of Myerstown started fourth in the 25-lap 410 sprint feature while Brian Montieth started on the pole.

And Phoenixville’s Montieth jetted into control when action began with Marks motoring up to second on just the second lap.

The frantic pace set by the leaders was slowed with six laps completed for a slowed Tyler Ross on the frontstretch.

The restart saw sixth starter Matt Campbell make a two car pass to move from fifth to third before another yellow bunched the field on the seventh tour.

The race would then go green all the way to the finish with Montieth running the cushion, doing his best to stay ahead of Marks, who was slamming the cushion as well.

But as the cushion-running leaders entered the rear of the field on lap 14, Marks began to slowly close on Montieth as he ran up on a pair of cars racing side by side for position.

With 10 laps to go, the pair was side by side at the line for the lead before Montieth pulled ahead.

Marks then regrouped for another run at the pacesetter and with five laps to go, he had caught Montieth again as the pair again crossed the line side by side again with Marks having just a nose into the lead.

But Montieth reclaimed command as the pair shot into the first turn only to see Marks go back out in front in the second turn before pulling Montieth back to the line with the pair again racing side by side with three laps left.

However Marks surged ahead this time around to get away just enough in order to prevent Montieth from slipping back by.

Marks then took the win by 1.088 seconds.

“That was a really, really hard race,” points leader Marks said, “One of the hardest I’ve had to race in a while.”

“I was just trying everything I could possibly do. I thought I lost the race there at one point.”

Matt Campbell finished third followed by Freddie Rahmer and Chad Trout.

Sixth through 10th went to Jeff Halligan, Zeb Wise, second starter Lucas Wolfe, Kyle Moody and Kyle Reinhardt.

Heats went to Campbell, Rick Lafferty and Rahmer.

Three attempts to get the 358 sprint main started were made before the first lap could be scored but when it had, polesitter Cody Fletcher was leading the field.

His run at the front was short lived however as second starter Derek Locke took over with two laps down.

The race was halted on the third lap when Russell Hammaker flipped in the third turn while others involved included Dave Brown Jr., Wyatt Hinkle and Nat Tuckey.

Eighth starter Doug Hammaker raced into second by lap seven and was chasing leader Locke when he entered traffic with nine laps to go in the 20-lapper.

A final caution flag with three laps to go gave Hammaker a clear shot at the leader but Locke moved down entering the first turn when action resumed to prevent a challenge from Developing to his inside.

Prior to that point, Locke was working the top while Hammaker bit into the lead using the low side.

Locked ended up taking the win for his second in a row, his second of the season and the second of his career at the oval.

Kevin Nouse rode home third followed by Fletcher and Zach Newlin.

Heats went to Nouse, Steve Owings and Locke with Scott Fisher taking the consolation race.

Bill Unglert started on the pole of the 25-lap USAC East 360 sprint main and led over Carmen Perigo Jr. when the race began.

Steve Drevicki, who entered the race as the tour point leader with two wins already this season, began the race in sixth.

Eighth starter Alex Bright moved into second behind Unglert on the ninth lap before Drevicki slid into the second spot on lap 11 using a slide job.

Drevicki then went to work on Unglert, taking the lead in the fourth turn with 10 laps to go before a caution flag regrouped the field.

Bright and Unglert swapped the second spot on laps 16 and 17 before Bright finally secured the spot.

A final caution flag with five laps to go put Bright on Drevicki’s tail and although he was able to get alongside Drevicki in the turns when action resumed he was never able to make a pass with Drevicki instead pulling away to the finish.

Billy Vaninwegen was third followed by Joe Biasi and Carmen Perigo Jr.

Heats went to Unglert, Bright and Biasi.

Brent Marks Picks Up First Win of the Season During Curt Hershey Memorial

Greg Satterlee and Garrett Bard Continue Dominating Ways As Well

PORT ROYAL, PA – After numerous runner-up finishes this season, Brent Marks finally parked his sprint car in victory lane following a dominating run in the Curt Hershey tribute race Saturday night at Port Royal Speedway, sponsored by Bobby Rahal Toyota of Lewistown.

Marks was 4-seconds behind Jared Esh when he took over second, but quickly tracked him down in lapped traffic using a fourth turn slider to grab the lead after slight contact. He drove away from there to a convincing 3.3-second win -his first of the season. His ninth career speedway win was worth $4,044, plus a $400 bonus for being the hard charger. He also received a $300 bonus for coming from ninth to win.

“Finally,” a relieved Marks said in victory lane. “It’s been one heck of a year. We’ve been fast all year long, but couldn’t quite get it in victory lane. Tonight, I wasn’t letting anything stop me. This car was awesome all night long. It all worked out great for me tonight.”

“He was a contributor to the sport and meant a lot to a lot of people and it’s an honor to win this race,” Marks said of Hershey.

Esh started second with Nicole Bower on the pole for the 25-lap main event. Esh grabbed the lead and streaked away from the field building a straightaway lead.

Meanwhile, Marks was racing forward from his ninth starting spot and was in a three-car battle for fourth. Esh quickly began lapping slower cars.

Marks secured fourth and quick passes of Kyle Reinhardt and Bower moved him into second with nine laps completed.

Esh was racing in heavy traffic with Marks closing quickly. Marks threw a huge slider at Esh as they raced into turn three. Marks cleared the pass with slight front end contact with Esh in turn four on lap 12.

“I was getting super aggressive,” Marks said. “I’m sure they were close slide-jobs, but you have to do that to win this deal. You can’t let them have the opportunity to get back by you. It’s awesome to be a winner in the CJB Motorsports car.”

“I would have liked to come out on top, but I’m very happy this is the first feature I got to run in this car,” Esh said of the Chiappelli 98. “Marks was in another league and Logan was good as usual. Right out of the box, we seemed to have decent speed. We were lucky in our heat race, some guys wrecked out which helped us get a handicap spot.

After spending years on the road, Marks turned back into a central PA regular this season.

“With the way things worked out with COVID this year, we had to change our schedule,” Marks said. “Most of the big racing is happening in Pennsylvania, so we decided to focus on this part of the country. This car is going to be fast anywhere we go now. Things are starting to come together. We’re fast every time we hit the track.”

Now it was Marks driving away from the field with the right rear up against the cushion. Eighth starter Logan Wagner took second from Esh with eight laps to go.

Marks controlled the final laps scoring the win over Wagner, Esh, Reinhardt and Ryan Taylor. AJ Flick, Dylan Cisney, TJ Stutts, Bower and Mike Wagner rounded out the top 10 in the non-stop race.

“We let Brent get by us early and that ultimately cost us the race,”

Wagner said. “Curt Hershey was a great guy. He propelled me to where I am today.”

Heat races for the 30 cars were won by Logan Wagner, Mike Wagner, and AJ Flick. Tyler Reeser won the B-main.

Late Models

Roy Deese led the opening lap of the 25-lap late model feature over Trevor Feathers and Dillan Stake. Gregg Satterlee moved by Stake and into third. Feathers stayed within striking distance of the leader as they closed on slower traffic by the half-way point.

The yellow flag flew keeping them out of traffic. The red flag was displayed as Stake’s car had a fire under the hood when he stopped on the frontstretch. He was okay.

Feathers ducked under Deese on the restart, but couldn’t make the pass with Satterlee lurking in third. Deese began to pull away following the challenge. Satterlee took second from Feathers with five laps to go.

Another yellow erased a 2.4-second lead for Deese.

Feathers car broke entering turn three on the restart bringing out the yellow. He had been racing third.

Satterlee tried the bottom on Deese on the restart, but Deese was fast thru the middle. He got a little too high the next lap giving Satterlee an opening. He shot under him entering turn three. They raced side-by-side down the frontstretch with Satterlee securing the lead in turn one.

He drove away from there for his fourth win of the season worth $2,544 and a guaranteed starting spot in the Frank Sagi race at Hagerstown.

Deese, Jeff Rine, Donald Lingo and Kyle Lee completed the top five.

Ross Robinson, Andy Haus, Gene Knaub, Mike Lupfer and Jason Covert rounded out the top 10.

Heat races for the 43 cars were won by Gregg Satterlee, Donald Lingo, Kyle Lee, Larry Neiderer and Dillan Stake. Coleby Frye won the B-main.

305 Sprints

A nasty backstretch crash involving Derek Hauck marred the start of the 20-lap main event for the 305 Sprints. Doug Dodson got collected in the crash as well. All drivers were reported okay.

Point leader Garrett Bard raced into the lead over Justin Clark when the race resumed. He cruised to his third win of the season over Clark.

Defending champion Ken Duke Jr. completed the podium after passing two cars on the final lap. Nick Sweigart, who started 20th, and Domenic Melair completed the top five. Jake Waters, John Walp, Roger Irvine, Fred Arnold and Andrew Boyer rounded out the top 10.

Clark’s car failed post-race tech and he was disqualified.

Heat races for the 49 cars were won by Jake Waters, Fred Arnold, Devin Adams, Justin Clark and Garrett Bard. Landon Price won the C-main and Doug Dodson won the B-main.

A New Identity In Twenty-Twenty

Shane Cottle Grabs Selinsgrove USAC Silver Crown Holland Classic On Final Lap

Bracy Bacon gets USAC East 360 Victory Sunday

8/9/20

Selinsgrove, Pa. – Veteran Shane Cottle of Kansas, Illinois, scored the win in Sunday night’s 74-lap Bill Holland Classic for USAC Silver Crown Sprint Cars at Selinsgrove Speedway with a picturesque pass at the start/finish line as the white flag waved.

Cottle’s ride to the $8,100 victory came after he changed a left rear tire on lap 30 of the race and restarted at the rear of the field.

Broken Arrow Oklahoma’s Brady Bacon took the win in the USAC East 360 sprint feature after leader Robert Ballou of Rocklin, California turned into the outside first turn fence before flipping on lap 14.

The original start of the Silver Crown event was red-flagged for a third turn flip as executed by Arizona’s Casey Buckman.

Cottle originally started the Holland Classic in 23rd and raced under the radar up to the point of his blown left rear tire with 44 laps to go.

Up to that point, polesitter CJ Leary of Greenfield, Indiana, had held sway over second starter Justin Grant of Ione, California.

When Cottle’s left rear let go near the start-finish line on lap 30, Mechanicsburg’s Dave Berkheimer ended up climbing up and over Cottle’s machine before flipping near the end of the frontstretch as fire shot from the bottom of his car.

Berkheimer was not injured.

Cottle then got the chance to replace his tire and restart at the tail of the field.

By lap 35, Leary and Grant had Brady Bacon, Kevin Thomas Jr. and Chris Windom in pursuit and with 47 laps completed the front four cars were threatening to settle the event between themselves as they pulled away from the field.

However tire preservation and tire wear would become an issue before the finish.

With 22 laps to go, Thomas and Windom made contact while racing for fourth with Thomas getting sidelined for the duration of the race while also regrouping the field for a restart.

And Leary poured on the speed when action resumed, trying to run away from the pack before the entire complexion of the extended distance affair changed during another caution period with seven laps to go.

Under the caution, Windom developed a right rear flat, forcing him to slow on the restart.

Bacon then restarted third and tried to work on Grant as Grant went after leader Leary, only to see caution again appear on lap 69, this time for more tire troubles.

And then Grant came up lame on lap 70, again with tire woes, dropping out of second, moving Bacon into the spot while also finding Cottle now running just behind.

A master on the low side, Cottle out gunned Bacon on lap 71 to race into second and set his sights on the leader only to again see the pace hampered with two laps to go.

The final restart, as with the last several, saw Leary drive a fast pace back to the green flag while trying to get a jump on the field as action resumed.

But Cottle stuck with him on the restart and tried a low move into the first turn.

Leary fought back that advance and then blasted low through turns three and four only to see Cottle change lanes as the pair raced onto the frontstretch.

And it was with picture perfect skills that Cottle got to Leary’s outside for the race-winning pass just as the pair crossed the start/finish line under the white flag.

Cottle then surged ahead as the pair raced into the first corner as he went on to the victory by .774 seconds.

Leary took second followed by Kyle Robbins, New Castle, Indiana; Bryan Gossel, Fort Collins, Colorado; and Carmen Perigo Jr., Stoystown.

Sixth through 10th went to Kyle Cummins, Princeton, Indiana; Bacon; Shane Cockrum, Benton, Illinois; Matt Goodnight, Winchester, Indiana; and Logan Seavey, Sutter, California.

Leary set fast time over the field with a lap of 21.676 seconds.

Alex Bright led the first two laps of the 20-lap USAC East 360 sprint main before second starter Brady Bacon took command.

However Bacon soon lost the lead to eighth starter Robert Ballou who was working the top cushion to perfection and in thrilling style as Ballou went out front on the fifth tour.

The leader hit traffic with nine laps to go but was working perfectly through the field when it appeared something may have broken on the front of his racer in the first turn.

Ballou pushed up over the cushion as he set the car into the corner and careened straight into the outside fence before flipping although escaping injury.

This handed the lead back to Bacon with defending series champion Steve Drevicki lining up second for the restart.

Bacon controlled action on the restart and again on a restart with five laps to go but a final restart with one lap to go found Drevicki in contention.

The Reading driver got under Bacon in the first turn for the lead only to see Bacon hold the line and race to his outside in turn two before the pair drag raced into the third corner.

Drevicki hung tough with Bacon through the turns but Bacon had just enough bite to surge ahead to the finish, taking the win by. .381 seconds.

Mark Smith was third followed by Kevin Thomas Jr. and Alex Bright.

Heats went to Drevicki, Ballou and Carmen Perigo Jr.

Gerard McIntyre Jr. and Billy Dietrich shared the front row of the 30-lap feature with Freddie Rahmer and Lucas Wolfe lined up in the second row.

McIntyre had the advantage going into turn 1 with Billy and Freddie in second and third respectively. A three-way battle for fourth was brewing between Tim Wagaman, Chad Trout and Lucas Wolfe when the caution came out on lap 1 for Tyler Esh. Esh slowed on the front stretch and came to a stop in turn 2.

The top five for the restart were McIntyre, Billy, Freddie, Wagaman and Wolfe.

McIntyre got a great restart. Freddie looked under Billy in turns 1 and 2 and took second. Matt Campbell, who was filling in for Brian Montieth as he spent time with his family, was up to fifth from ninth and got to work on Wagaman to try and take fourth.

Freddie was reeling in McIntyre and got close enough to slide under him in turn 4 on lap 6 to take the lead.

The yellow came out again on lap 9. This time it was for Jay Galloway when he spun out in turn 2. Galloway rejoined the field.

This time Freddie led McIntyre, Billy, Wagaman and Campbell to the cone for the single-file restart.

Brandon Rahmer tried to get by Campbell to enter the top 5. While those two battled for position Danny Dietrich entered the mix. Dietrich got by Brandon for sixth.

Wagaman was working on Billy for third and took the spot on lap 12.

Campbell and Danny made it a three-way battle with Billy for fourth with Danny getting by them both to take the spot.

Danny challenged Wagaman for third and took the spot coming out of turn 2 on lap 16. Next in Danny’s path was McIntyre. Danny got by Gerard for the runner-up spot on lap 19.

Freddie had a 1.9 second lead over Danny with 10 laps to go.

The caution lights came on for Tyler Ross on lap 21 when he fell off the pace.

Strickler lined up to the outside of pole-sitter Zach Allman at the start of the feature.

Strickler took the lead going into turn 1 on the start with Allman and Cody Fletcher side by side for second coming out of turn 2.

The yellow came out before the first lap was in the books. The field lined up for a complete restart behind Allman and Strickler.

Chris Frank came to a stop on the back stretch before the green came out for the restart. Frank’s belts had come loose. When a driver stops for a safety issue they are able to restart in their running position instead of tailing the field. Frank kept his third starting spot.

Strickler took the lead once again at the start. Fletcher was up to second as he came out of turn 2 but the red flag came out before a lap was completed.

Cameron Burke and Hayden Miller both got upside down and Justin Foster was collected as a casualty of the incident. Foster was able to rejoin the field for another complete restart.

The third time was the charm for the field to start. Strickler shot out to the lead once again. This time it was Frank battling Allman for second.

While Frank was chasing down Allman, Doug Hammaker caught up to him and wanted the third spot. While Hammaker was trying to get by Frank, Fletcher got by him to take fourth. A three-car battle for third ensued between Fletcher, Frank and Hammaker.

Justin Foster came to a stop on the front stretch on lap 4 bringing out a caution.

Strickler led Allman, Fletcher, Hammaker and Frank to the cone for the single-file restart.

Strickler drove to the lead into turn 1 with Hammaker getting by Fletcher for third and battling Allman for second.

Kody Hartlaub entered the top 5 on the restart.

Hammaker got to the outside of Allman coming out of turn 4 to take second on lap 7.

Allman, Hartlaub and Fletcher battled for third with Hartlaub taking the spot on lap 9.

The red flag came out again on lap 10 when Zane Rudisill tipped over in turn 1. Matt Findley got collected in the incident as well.

Strickler paced the field for the restart ahead of Hammaker, Hartlaub, Allman and Fletcher.

Strickler and Hammaker both chose to go low into turn 1 with Strickler holding on to the lead.

Jeff Rohrbaugh, who sits atop the all time win list in 358 competition at the track, entered the top five on lap 11.

Hammaker was trying everything to get by Strickler including a slide job on lap 13 in turns 1 and 2. Strickler got Hammaker back coming out of turn 2 to keep the lead.

As the top two battled for the lead, Hartlaub reeled them in.

Strickler was making the bottom of 1 and 2 work as Hammaker rolled through the middle. Despite throwing everything he had at the leader, Hammaker couldn’t make the pass.

Strickler won his first 358 feature by 1.049 seconds over Hammaker. Hartlaub crossed the line third. Rohrbaugh finished fourth and Chris Arnold completed the top five.

The 358 Sprint heat races were won by Travis Scott, Jeff Rohrbaugh, Chad Criswell and Chris Frank.

Jeff Paulson Wins Vintage Race

Jeff Paulson lined up fourth for the 15-lap Outlaw Vintage Racing Series feature on Saturday night.

Jon Lines started on the pole with Andy Cassel lined up on his outside.

Cassel led Paulson, Dave Dissinger. Mike Stofflet and Mark Hahn for the restart.

Cassel went high in turns 1 and 2 with Paulson using the bottom to close in on the leader. Paulson made the pass for the lead coming out of turn 4 on lap 2.

The yellow flag came out again on lap 3 when Travis Jacobus stopped on the highside of turn 2. Cassel was off the pace when the yellow came out.

Paulson paced the field and took the lead on the restart with Stofflet trying to get by Dissinger for second.

Stofflet got by Dissinger at the line on lap 4 for second right before the caution came out as Cassel was once again off the pace.

Paulson took the lead once again on the restart and started to pull away from the field.

Scott Schaeffer drove by Dissinger for fourth on lap 6 and made quick work of Hahn for third.

Stofflet caught Paulson and got a nose under him lap 7. Schaeffer entered the mix using the high side as the leaders entered lapped traffic on lap 11.

Paulson passed two lapped cars at the line on lap 12 and Stofflet was right behind him.

Another yellow came on lap 13 for John Marks who got spun around in turns 1 and 2. Stofflet and Schaeffer who were running second and third got collected in turns 1 and 2 as well.

Port Royal Speedway set for three-division show to honor Curt Hershey along with Salute to the Military night

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Penn- (August 6, 2020)- Coming off a weekend where persistent rain showers postponed the feature events until dates later this season, racing returns to the Port Royal Speedway this weekend (August 8) sponsored by Bobby Rahal Toyota of Lewistown with a three division show featuring the Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Cars, the River Valley Builders Super Late Models and the Penns Valley Meat Market PASS/IMCA 305 Sprint Cars.

The night will be the annual ‘Salute to the Military’ night and all military veterans will receive FREE ADMISSION with a proper government military ID card or DD-214 form. Bob Timney, a military veteran from State College, Pa., who goes by the stage name of ‘Sgt. Bob’, will sing the national anthem and will provide free music entertainment presented by Butler Hill Maple Farm on the stage just outside of the frontstretch entrance gates next to the ticket offices from 4-6pm EST.

Along with the salute to the military, the track will also pay homage to late engine builder Curt Hershey. Hershey was the owner of Hershey’s Racing Engines and produced powerplants for many 410 sprint cars, dirt late models and 305 sprint cars throughout the years. He was described as an asset to the racing community and his support and engines guided many of driver’s careers who have raced at the speedway over the years. He passed away June 23rd at the age of 58 and is missed dearly.

In remembrance of Hershey, the track has increased the purses in all divisions where the 410’s will be racing for $4,044, the late models will race for $2544 to win and the 305’s will be vying for $444 to win and $222 to start. Also, on the line for the late models will be a $50 bonus to all heat race winner’s courtesy of D&D Auto Recycling.

In the 305 division, the hard charger award will be worth an increased $200 courtesy of Penns Valley Meat Market and CG Racing Engines and Newlin’s Bar Service will be handing out a torsion bar cleaning tool to the highest finishing driver using a Hershey’s Racing Engine. If one of those drivers can win the feature, they will also receive an additional $44 from Newlin’s.

In Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Car competition, Logan Wagner enters the weekend with a narrow 40-point advantage in the season standings over his father Mike Wagner. AJ Flick (-210), Anthony Macri (-250) and Brent Marks (-265) make up the top five. The most recent winner at the speedway in the division was Kyle Larson back on July 19th.

Colton Flinner is the current points leader for the River Valley Builders Super Late Models, and he hold a slim 15-point advantage over Trevor Feathers. Andy Haus (-55), Dylan Yoder (-80) and Mike Lupfer (-140) fill out the top-five. Gregg Satterlee currently is riding a wave of three victories in his last four appearances at the track and if in attendance will likely be the favorite.

Finally, in the Penns Valley Meat Market PASS/IMCA 305 Sprint Car division Garrett Bard holds down the point standings lead by 75-points over Doug Dodson. Erin Statler (-140), Nick Sweigart (-145) and last year’s champion Ken Duke (-155) make up the top five. Bard has two victories in three races at the speedway in 2020 and will be looking to further stretch his lead this weekend.

The speedway and USAC will have a display of USAC Silver Crown cars on display for race-goers to inspect prior to the start of racing action along with a tribute to the race’s namesake, the winner of the very first race ever held at Selinsgrove Speedway in 1946, Bill Holland of Philadelphia.

THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES

EXPECTED SEVERE WEATHER CONDITIONS FORCE CANCELLATION OF USAC NATIONAL MIDGET & MODIFIED DOUBLE HEADER TUESDAY AT GRANDVIEW

BECHTELSVILLE, PA AUGUST 3, 2020 . . . . Due to the fast-approaching Tropical Storm Isaias and the forecast of high winds and heavy rain, management of the Thunder on the Hill Racing Series in conjunction with USAC officials are canceling the Tuesday night, August 4 NOS Energy USAC National Midget & 358 Modified event at Grandview Speedway. The weather outlook is very dismal, with rain forecasted at 100% throughout the entire day and an estimated rainfall of two to three inches. This event will not be rescheduled for 2020.

"It's an unfortunate turn of events for the 2020 racing season," Co-promoter Bob Miller said. "We were excited to offer up a great night of USAC Midget racing, but with the current pandemic, minimizing the cost for race teams is important. We will prepare for this event in 2021."

With the odds stacked against the chance of getting the Tuesday, August 4 event in the books, the early cancellation will allow USAC race teams and spectators to remain safe at home, waiting for the storm to pass before heading east for the balance of the USAC Midget swing.

The next Thunder on the Hill Racing Series event is set for Thursday night, August 27 with the return of Tony Stewart's All Star Circuit of Champions 410 Sprints. The 358 Modifieds will be part of the doubleheader with gates opening at 5 PM and race time set for 7:30 PM.

Adult admission tickets are $30, Children 6 to 11 are $10, Children 5 and under will be admitted free. The pit fee is $40, and a license is not required.

Abbottstown, PA (August 1, 2020) – Danny Dietrich lined up eighth for the 30-lap feature on DCS School of Driving Night. Despite a caution filled event, Dietrich worked his way through the field and caught the leader, Billy Dietrich, and took the lead from his brother with 7 laps to go. Dietrich went on to win his first feature at the track in over a month.

Glenndon Forsythe and Scott Fisher shared the front row at the head of the 25-car field on Saturday night. Forsythe shot to the lead when the green flag dropped with Dylan Norris moving into second. Fisher and Billy Dietrich drag raced down the backstretch for third with Dietrich taking the spot. Jim Siegel followed and moved into fourth sending Fisher to fifth.

The first caution of the race came on lap 2 when Alan Krimes slowed on the front stretch. Krimes rejoined the field after stopping in the work area.

Forsythe led Norris, Billy, Siegel and Fisher to the cone for the single-file restart.

Dietrich was the only driver in the top 5 to opt for the high line in turns 1 and 2 on the restart. Norris got under Forsythe coming out of turn 2 and as the two battled for the lead Billy got by both of them to take the top spot.

Siegel moved into third and the top three, Dietrich, Forsythe and Siegel, started to pull away from the rest of the field.

The leaders approached lapped traffic on lap 7.

Brian Montieth was working through the field from his ninth starting spot and was trying to get in the top 5 as he battled Fisher.

Another yellow came on lap 8 when Aaron Bollinger stopped on the front stretch.

Billy paced the field with Forsythe, Siegel, Norris and Fisher lined up behind him for the restart.

Once again Billy shot to the top going into turns 1 and 2 with Forsythe working the bottom as Siegel was all over him for the second spot.

Siegel slid Forsythe in turns 3 and 4 for second but Forsythe returned the favor in turns 1 and 2. Once again Siegel got by Forsythe in 3 and 4 with Forsythe taking second back in 1 and 2. Siegel finally held him off to take the spot on lap 11 after an intense battle.

The third caution came on lap 11 when Tony Fiore stopped on the front stretch.

The running order for the top five on the restart was Dietrich, Siegel, Forsythe, Norris and Fisher. Danny Dietrich was lurking in sixth with Montieth behind him, both wanting to get into the top five.

Danny got around Fisher earning a spot in the top five. Troy Wagaman Jr. was on the move and got by Montieth and went right to work on Fisher.

Danny got by Norris for fourth before the fourth yellow came on lap 14. Steve Surniak got turned around in turns 3 and 4.

Billy led Siegel, Forsythe, Danny and Troy on the restart. Yet another caution came on lap 15 for a three-car pile-up in turn 4 involving Alan Krimes, Chad Trout and Matt Campbell. Trout and Campbell rejoined the field.

Danny got by Forsythe for third on the restart putting Siegel in between the two Dietrich brothers.

Siegel slid Billy on lap 18 in turns 1 and 2 for the lead but it did not stick allowing Billy to hold onto the lead.

The fifth caution came on lap 18 when Trout and Brie Hershey got together in turn 4.

Another yellow came on the restart as the field stacked up behind Billy with Freddie Rahmer getting on top of Troy. Rahmer collected Fisher and Montieth. Troy was able to continue on without stopping, keeping his top five spot. Brett Michalski was also involved ending his night.

After an open red for fuel, Siegel, Danny, Forsythe and Troy lined up behind Billy for the restart.

Danny drove to the bottom into turn 1 to try and get a run on Siegel for second. Danny got by Siegel at the line on lap 19 for second.

Billy had a nearly 1.5 second lead over his brother with 10 laps to go.

Chase Dietz got under Troy coming out of turn 2 to enter the top 5 on lap 22. Wagaman got him back at the line to hold the spot but the two continued to swap back and forth for position.

Danny drove by Billy for the lead on the front stretch on lap 23 after Billy made contact with the outside wall.

Danny was catching the tail end of the field with 3 laps to go, but his lead of 2.684 seconds gave him plenty of leeway over Billy as the laps wound down.

Danny beat his brother to the checkered flag by 1.839 seconds. Siegel finished third. Adam Wilt made a last lap pass for fourth and Forsythe crossed the line fifth.

410 heat winners were Jim Siegel, Dylan Norris and Scott Fisher.

The 358 Sprint feature was rained out and will be made up on Saturday, August 8. The Classic Car feature will be made up on a future date.

This Saturday, August 8, Lincoln Speedway is back in action with the Hank Gentzler Memorial Manufacturers Appreciation Race presented by Pancho’s Racing Products featuring 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints and the Vintage Outlaw Series.

Dietrich Steals Lead From Macri For First Williams Grove Sprints Win Of Season

Derek Locke Gets First Career Oval 358 Sprint Victory

7/31/20

Mechanicsburg – Danny Dietrich took the lead from Anthony Macri on a lap 18 restart and went on to win his first Williams Grove Speedway 410 sprint main of the season on Friday night at the Cumberland County oval.

The victory was the 25th of Dietrich’s career at the speedway.

In the 25-lap 358 sprint main, Carlisle’s Derek Locke sped to victory.

The win was the third generation driver’s first ever win at the facility.

Tyler Ross could lead only one lap of the 25-lap 410 sprint feature before second starter Anthony Macri got by for control.

Macri hit lapped traffic on the eighth loop with Ross and third starter Danny Dietrich in tow.

The pair dueled for second briefly before Brent Marks and Brock Zearfoss joined in the battle and as all four pilots raced for second under a blanket, Macri began getting away from the field.

By lap 16, Macri had a straightaway lead over the four-car battle for second as Dietrich went for a pass in turns three and four with Ross holding the spot.

That move by Dietrich only served to intensify the war for second as the foursome really bunched up for the spot as they raced into turn three on the 18th tour.

With Zearfoss in the middle and Marks blasting the bottom, Ross ran the top groove only to see both cars get underneath and edge him too high in the fourth corner, forcing him to come to a stop.

Dietrich then took over second with Marks, Zearfoss and now Freddie Rahmer inside the top five.

Macri had been rolling the cushion to perfection prior to the yellow, making his time while pulling away from the field.

But when action resumed, he dropped off of the cushion line entering the first turn and instead rolled in through the middle before sliding up to catch the cushion.

This gave Dietrich exactly the run that he needed for the win as he worked off of the bottom down the backchute to blast by on the lowside in turns three and four for control.

Macri seemed to struggle after the restart, soon giving up second to Marks with five laps left.

By that time however, Dietrich was off and running to the win, which he go by a margin of 2.616 seconds.

Macri settled for third followed by Zearfoss and Lucas Wolfe.

Sixth through 10th went to Ryan Smith, Freddie Rahmer, Jason Solwold, Chase Dietz and Matt Campbell.

Twin heats went to Ross and Macri.

“On the restart we went into one and I thought maybe he might slide himself so I just had to nail the bottom,” Dietrich said of his strategy against Macri on the final restart.

“We’ve been racing against some really, really good competition, whether it’s the All Stars or the outlaws or just plain Kyle Larson.”

The 25-lap 358 sprint main, a Summer Series extra distance event, got off to a rocky start with four attempts at getting the first lap complete before Derek Locke could be scored as the official leader.

Locke would end up leading all 25 laps but not before feeling pressure late in the race as applied by Brett Wanner.

A red for refueling with three laps to go saw Wanner get under and beside Locke for control on the restart and ensuing laps but a wiggle on the second turn cushion with one and one-half laps to go sealed the deal for Locke.

Wanner had also gotten by Locke for the lead on lap 11 only to see Locke come back on him for control in the third turn.

Polesitter Kevin Nouse was sidelined from the event during the second attempted start when Doug Hammaker blasted underneath him for second in the third turn and made contact with his left front wheel, sending him careening upward across the speedway.

Hammaker would later withdraw from the event mid-race.

Dylan Norrish rode home third followed by Jordan Strickler and Scott Fisher.

Sixth through 10th went to Jordan Givler, Brett Strickler, Rich Eichelberger, Chad Criswell and Matt Findley.

Port Royal Speedway

After a weekend hiatus, Saturday night It will be the 14th Annual Living Legends Dream Race at Port Royal Speedway featuring the Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Cars and the River Valley Builders Super Late Models.

The two divisions combined purse will be over $70,000 with $10,000 on the line for the winner of the Sprint Car A-main and $3000 on the line for the winner of the Super Late Models. The late model show will be sanctioned by the ULMS Racing Series and serves as a make-up for their event that was cancelled earlier this season because of COVID-19.

Traditionally the race honors one or two “Living Legends” from the past of the speedway, however this year there will be a unique special presentation in its place that will take place prior to racing activities for the night.

The first ever Dream Race was held in 2007, where Sean Michael triumphed in a very popular and emotional win driving for the late Jim Nace in his #6 Sprint Car. Since then Greg Hodnett (2), Cody Darrah, Chad Layton, Blane Heimbach, Ryan Taylor, Brent Marks, Rick Lafferty, Lance Dewease (2) and most recently AJ Flick have all won the prize event.

For the 410 Sprint Cars there will be a featured full purse of over $55,000 and it will pay $500 to start. The main event offers over $35,000 throughout the field and traditionally is the highest paying unsanctioned purse in the state.

The event includes a unique format featuring twin 16-lap semi mains carrying full purses that help set the feature lineup. Winners will earn $2,000 for their efforts, $200 to start and nearly $10,000 makes up the purse for each Semi. Longtime promoter and racing announcer Ted Reitz is a main sponsor for the semi-purses.

Time trials set the semi lineups via an inversion draw with odd and even qualifiers making up each semi and the top-10 for each advancing directly to the evenings A-main. Packers Concessions is providing a $100 Fast Time Award for the pole sitter of each semi. The top three in each semi will advance to the re-draw. There will be a fan vote for a 25th starter as well. To be eligible, the driver must finish the B-Main and be a non-qualifier.

As traditional, thousands of dollars’ worth of contingency prizes are also given out throughout the night and there will be enough to guarantee each driver receives something. This includes 4 Right- Rear Tires courtesy of Hoosier Racing Tire, One free set of Penske Racing Shocks, 2 engine dynos via Rider Racing Engines, 1 engine dyno courtesy OF Don Ott Racing Engines, 4 $100 certificates via Diversified Machine Inc., 25 $25 certificates via Kreitz Oval Track Parts and 3 $100 certificates towards a top wing via Vortex Racing Products.

The late model purse features close to a $12,500 purse with A-Main qualifiers guaranteed $250 to start. On top of the previously announced $3000 winner’s share, the winner of this year’s event will earn themselves a guaranteed starting spot in the Frank Sagi Tribute Race held August 16th at Hagerstown Speedway in nearby Maryland.

There will also be a Kid’s Money Scramble courtesy of Pennian Bank for Kids 11 and Under. Kids will assembly in the infield during time-trials where $500 in coins will be up for the taking. We will also have a candy scramble as well at the same time.

Saturday, August 15 (7:30PM) 410 Sprints + 358 Sprints + Mid-Atlantic Modifieds

Abbottstown, PA (July 29, 2020) – After charging from ninth to third in his second heat race to solidify a second place starting spot in the 40-lap feature, David Gravel said “If I can’t win from second I should quit” during a pit interview. Gravel won’t be quitting anytime soon as the World of Outlaw driver led wire to wire to claim the $10,000 prize in Wednesday night’s Drydene 40.

Gravel lined up to the outside of Brian Montieth for the feature start. Gravel used his outside starting spot to gain the advantage over Montieth going into turn 1. Logan Schuchart settled into third while Brent Marks and Lucas Wolfe battled for fourth behind the leaders.

The first caution of the race came on lap 2 when Adam Wilt came to a stop on the back stretch.

Gravel led Montieth, Schuchart, Marks and Wolfe to the cone for the single file restart.

Montieth went high to try and catch Gravel but it left the bottom open for Schuchart to take second in turns 1 and 2.

Marks followed taking third, but the caution came out again on lap 3 before the lap was completed to make the pass official. The yellow was for Billy Dietrich who got spun around in turns 1 and 2.

Once again Gravel paced the field for the restart. Gravel and Schuchart pulled away from Montieth as he tried to fend off Marks. Marks got by Montieth for third on lap 4.

After suffering extensive damage in his heat first heat race and qualifying through the B-main, Freddie Rahmer pulled in on lap 8.

Schuchart stayed with Gravel at the front of the pack as the two pull away from the field. Marks also pulled away from the rest of the field as he reeled in the leaders.

Lucas Wolfe entered the top four on lap 10 after getting by Montieth. Brandon Rahmer followed getting into the top 5.

The leaders entered lapped traffic on lap 12. Marks used the bottom in turns 1 and 2 to get by Schuchart for second on lap 13 as Logan tapped the wall using the high line.

Schuchart took second back on lap 15 but only temporarily as Marks took the spot back right at the line.

Schuchart tried the top in 1 and 2 to get by Marks but it was to no avail.

Marks got to the bumper of Gravel but couldn’t make a move for the lead.

The top three were running under a blanket as Gravel and Marks were nearly side by side at the line with 7 laps to go.

Gravel beat Marks to the line for the $10,000 pay day by .485 seconds. Schuchart finished third only .407 seconds behind Marks. Wolfe crossed the line fourth and Alan Krimes completed the top five.

Utilizing the Dirt Classic format points were given for time trial finish and two sets of heat races. The first set of heat races were lined up straight up from time trials. The first set of heats were won by Brian Montieth, Lucas Wolfe and Jacob Allen. The heat line ups for the second set of heats were an invert of the first set. The second set of heats were won by Lance Dewease, Anthony Macri and Dylan Cisney. After time trials and heats the top 20 were locked into the 40-lap feature. The remaining cars ran the B-main with the top four transferring to the main event.

This Saturday, August 1, Lincoln Speedway is back in action with DCS School of Driving Night featuring 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints and Classic Cars. Action starts at 7:30PM with pit gates open at 5PM and grandstand gates opening at 5:30PM.

Aug. 9 USAC Silver Crown Selinsgrove Show Features “Champ Cars & Local Bars” Expo

Historic Race To Showcase Bill Holland Classic 74th Anniversary Race With Local Brews!

USAC East 360 Sprints also on Sunday racing card

7/27/20

Selinsgrove, Pa - The upcoming August 9 appearance of the USAC Silver Crown Champ Dirt Car Series for the Bill Holland Classic 74th Anniversary Race at Selinsgrove Speedway is growing!

The special event will now include the “Champ Cars & Local Bars,” local brews and wines expo, beginning when gates open at 4:30 pm.

To go along with the historic USAC Silver Crown Champ Car Series race at Selinsgrove Speedway, the “Champ Cars & Local Bars” expo will offer fans the chance to purchase more than a dozen locally crafted ales to go along with wines, wine slushies, seltzers and more!

Live music is also expected to be part of the special event.

Local brewers Spyglass Ridge Winery of Sunbury and Three Beards Brewing Co. of Sunbury will be on display and offering up cool brews and treats to go along with the hot USAC on-track action.

Another event in the 2020 Slivinski Law Offices Super 7 Series at the track, the race will not only include the 74-lap, Bill Holland Classic 74th anniversary contest paying $8,000 to win but the USAC East 360 Wingless Sprint Series is also on the two-division racing card.

The big car, big race is a “can’t miss” Selinsgrove Speedway event for the ages that will showcase not only an extremely rare contest for wingless champ car sprints at the big half-mile but it will do so in an equally rare long-distance event.

The USAC Silver Crown Selinsgrove event coming up on August 9 will be the first ever Silver Crown race at the speedway. And it will be just the second time in history that a USAC event of any kind has been staged at the oval since USAC formed out of the defunct AAA in 1955.

Bill Holland of Philadelphia won the very first race ever run at Selinsgrove Speedway on July 20, 1946 before going on to win the 1949 Indianapolis 500 after a legendary career in AAA sanctioned racing contests across the nation

Among the USAC Silver Crown standouts expected to compete in the Holland Classic, five-time and defending Silver Crown champion Kody Swanson of Zionsville, Indiana, is at the top of the list.

Others expected to enter include 2016 Silver Crown champion “The Bear” Chris Windom, Canton, Illinois; USAC Sprint champion Brady Bacon, Broken Arrow, Oklahoma; “Sunshine” Tyler Courtney, Indianapolis, Indiana; CJ Leary, Greenfield, Indiana; and Justin Grant, Ione, California, among many others.

Aug. 9 Selinsgrove USAC Silver Crown Race Steeped In History – Of Holland & United States Auto Club!

7/26/20

Selinsgrove, Pa - When Selinsgrove Speedway hosts the USAC Silver Crown Series for Championship Dirt Cars on Sunday, August 9, for the first time in series and oval history, it will be honoring the track’s original winner, Bill Holland.

Holland won the inaugural race at the track on July 20, 1946 and that in itself was historic.

But Holland’s entire historic career is also meant to be feted with the race that itself, by virtue of carrying a USAC sanction, will also be making history as the Bill Holland Classic 74th Anniversary Race.

The USAC event will be just the second time ever that Selinsgrove Speedway will be hosting a USAC race.

The first event, a regular sprint race, was back on July 17, 1971 and it was Linglestown driver Mitch Smith that topped the USAC boys while competing on a temporary permit as granted by USAC officials to a select few local drivers that wished to join in the fun.

On that night, Smith drove a Gary Wasson-owned sprinter to what was billed as a “super blitz of USAC.” It was an occurrence that was virtually unheard of at the time, anywhere that USAC went.

But not only did local boy Smith win, he led a one-two-three finish by locally permitted drivers against the USAC invaders.

Sixth starter Smith took second from U SAC kingpin Larry Dickson on lap 14 and then drove around USACer Lee Kunzman on a lap 15 restart for second.

It took until lap 29 for Smith to go low on leader Osborne to get the lead and run to the 40-lap victory over Osborne and Bobbie Adamson.

Local turned USAC start Toby Tobias was fourth with Kunzman finishing fifth.

That race in 1971 took place just three days shy of the 25th anniversary of the first ever race held at the new Selinsgrove Speedway on the afternoon of July 20, 1946, won by Willard “Bill” Holland.

Holland began his illustrious racing career in his mid 20s in 1932 and before he retired in 1959, he had accumulated 53 sprint car wins across the East and Midwest while competing with AAA as well as in unsanctioned events.

In 1946 alone, Holland notched 16 sprint victories.

Holland was the 1941 AAA East champion and took second in the national AAA title fight in 1947. His USAC “Big Car” days spanned from 1936 – 1954 during which time he put up over 150 podium finishes.

The 1949 Indianapolis 500 found Holland throttling to victory to go along with second-place Indy finishes in 1947, 1948 and in 1950.

Bill Holland of Philadelphia was the son of a turn-of-the-century major league baseball player who inherited his father’s athletic abilities that found him proficient in roller and ice skating, leading to a tryout for the 1932 Olympic Winter Games.

Late in his racing career as well as afterward, Holland owned and operated a number of roller skating rinks from Connecticut to Arizona before succumbing to Alzheimer’s Disease in 1984.

Holland was posthumously inducted into the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame in 2005.

The 74-lap, $8,000 to win, USAC Silver Crown Series Bill Holland Classic 74th Anniversary Race at Selinsgrove Speedway gets underway at 7 pm, August 9.

The USAC East Wingless 360 Sprint Series is also on the racing card.

Adult general admission is set at $25 with youth ages 12 – 17 admitted for $15. Kids ages 11 and under are admitted for FREE.

Advanced tickets can be purchased by emailing contact information to: promoter@selinsgrovespeedway.com. Gates for advanced ticket holders will open at 4 pm with regular general admission gates opening at 4:30 pm.

There will be no racing at the track on August 1.

FROM WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY

July 25, 2020

DAVID GRAVEL WINS $20K IN CHAMPION RACING OIL SUMMER NATIONALS AT

WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY

MECHANICSBURG, PA – David Gravel is one of the best at Williams Grove

Speedway right now.

The Connecticut native dominated the Champion Racing Oil Summer

Nationals for the sprint cars Saturday night earning $20,000 for his

seventh career Grove win, and third win of the season against the

World of Outlaws.

He led all 30 laps unchallenged in the Jason Johnson Racing No. 41.

“We finally got a good pill draw for the dash,” Gravel said. “You

wanted to start on the outside row of the dash. My goal was to finish

second and we were able to do that. I knew if I started second, I

could probably get the jump on the start and hopefully control the

race. The track was real fast around the top. Three and four was

getting a little tricky. I didn’t know what the best lane was. I knew

running the top I was getting a lot of momentum on exit. Cautions went

my way. I didn’t have to deal with lapped traffic. When you’re out

front and can control the race, it’s so much easier. When you start

seventh or eighth, you’ve got to be extremely good to win these races.

I’m happy to put ourselves in position and capitalize.”

Donny Schatz and Gravel shared the front row to start the 30-lap

Summer Nationals main event. They raced side-by-side down the

frontstretch with Gravel nipping Schatz at the line completing lap one

as the leader.

The red flag stopped the race with one lap completed when Tim Shaffer

flipped on the frontstretch. He was okay.

Lance Dewease raced by Brad Sweet for third on the restart. Schatz

slowed to a stop on the backstretch with two laps completed. He was

done for the night.

Gravel controlled the restart and pulled away from Dewease as Logan

Schuchart raced hard with Sweet for third.

The yellow flew again with five laps completed when Anthony Macri hit

the inside frontstretch fence. He was racing with Brock Zearfoss for

sixth spot.

A three-car crash on the restart in the second corner stopped the race

again as the red flag was displayed. Steve Buckwalter, Kraig Kinser

and Lucas Wolfe were involved. They were okay. Teams were allowed to

refuel at this time.

A single-file restart ensued with Gravel pulling away from Dewease

once again. He had a 1.5-second lead with 10 laps completed.

Sheldon Haudenschild slowed on the frontstretch bringing out the

yellow the next lap. Friday night winner Shane Stewart pitted under

the yellow and was done for the night.

Gravel continued to build his advantage to nearly a straightaway at

the half-way point as Sweet passed Dewease for second, but jumped the

cushion allowing Dewease to drive back by in turn two. The

side-by-side battle continued for second as Gravel pulled away.

Schuchart pulled a slider on Sweet for third, but Sweet returned the

pass.

Dewease finally secured second, but Gravel was 2.5 seconds ahead.

However, Danny Dietrich slowed after a big puff of smoke emerged from

his car with 22 laps completed.

It didn’t matter thought as Gravel easily controlled the final laps

scoring the win by 4.17 seconds over Dewease with Sweet, Schuchart and

Jacob Allen completing the top five.

“Williams Grove has been a really good place for me,” Gravel said. “My

first career sprint car race was here.”

“How the race track was tonight, we weren’t very good,” Dewease said.

“I got real tight after that red and Brad kept getting runs at me. We

had a good race there sliding each other. I was happy to get to

second. It was hard to pass. We had some good restarts.

Brent Marks, Brock Zearfoss, 23rd starter Carson Macedo, Macri and

Daryn Pittman rounded out the top 10.

Stewart set quick time over the 32-car field with a lap of 17.167.

Schatz, Allen, Sweet and Zearfoss won the heat races. Schatz won the

dash. Steve Buckwalter won the Last Chance Showdown.

Selinsgrove, Pa. – Jason Shultz of Carlisle scored the $3,000 Summer Championship for Modern Heritage 410 sprint cars at Selinsgrove Speedway on Saturday night, taking his first career 410 sprint win anywhere while also scoring a first for his new No. 35 race team.

A former Selinsgrove Speedway limited sprint car track champion, Shultz owns 21 career limited wins at the oval.

Andy Haus of Hamburg took the win in the Summer Championship for super late models, also pocketing $3,000 for his 25 laps of work while holding off Jeff Rine.

The victory was the third of Haus’ career at the speedway.

The Roadrunner 20 was taken by 19th starter Jake Jones.

The first lap of the 25-lap Summer Championship for super sprints was red flagged when front row starter Anthony Fiore got sideways in the third turn while running third and collected sixth starter Dylan Norris.

Shultz then started the race second and took the lead over fourth starter Mark Smith on lap one.

But before Shultz could settle into a rhythm, the yellow flag appeared on the second circuit.

Shultz restarted with Smith, Brad Howard, Kyle Reinhardt and Chase Dietz lined up behind.

Reinhardt rocketed into third when action resumed while Shultz pulled away, entering the rear of the field on the ninth circuit.

At the halfway point, Shultz was well out in front while Smith and Reinhardt raced hard for second spot.

A yellow flag with eight laps to go wiped out a near one-second lead held by Shultz and it placed Reinhardt on his tail for the new green after taking second the lap before.

Reinhardt tried to take a look down low in the first turn when green reappeared but Shultz jetted away on the cushion and had a 2.3 second lead with three laps to go when a final yellow flag bunched the field.

Shultz pulled away to the win over the final one and one-half miles of the event to take the victory by 2.064 second over Reinhardt, ninth starter Dylan Cisney, Smith and 11th starter Justin Whittall.

Sixth through 10th went to Chase Dietz, Derek Locke, Curt Stroup, Nicole Bower and Kyle Smith.

Heats went to Dietz and Norris.

The start of the super late model main was stopped when eight cars connected in the second corner on the opening lap.

Polesitter Any Haus took the lead over Tim Wilson upon the completion of the first lap with Ken Trevitz in third.

Fourth starter Jeff Rine took third on the second lap.

Haus had just entered traffic on the sixth tour when a caution flag cleared the track in front of him and Rine took second away from Wilson on the restart by darting underneath in the first corner.

Another restart on lap eight put Rine on Haus’ bumper for a restart but Haus got away and had a near two-second lead at the halfway point.

A caution flag with 10 laps to go erased a 2.056 second lead held by Haus but he built that same margin up again when action resumed by pulling away from Rine, who failed to challenge for the win.

Ninth starter Dylan Yoder rode home third followed by Brett Schadel and Jim Yoder.

Sixth through 10th went to Tim Wilson, Andrew Yoder, Donnie Schick, Hayes Mattern and Nathan Long.

Heats went to Wilson, Schadel and Kyle Knapp.

Second starter Curtis Lawton led from the start until lap 18 of the Roadrunner 20 when 19th starter Jake Jones got by for the lead and win.

Lawton had withstood numerous restarts, racing with Terry Kramer for control before Jones moved into second.

The win was Jones’ third at the track this season and he took home $1,0000 for the win.

Keith Bissinger, involved in an early race accident, came back for third.

Darren Rice and Jimmy Kessler rounded out the top five finishers.

Heats went to Will Brunson and Lawton.

Stewart Turns Back Macri To Win Williams Grove Summer Nationals First Round Friday

7/24/20

Mechanicsburg – Oklahoma’ s Shane Stewart turned away a challenge from Anthony Macri to win night one of the Champion Racing Oil Summer Nationals for the World of Outlaws Sprint Cars at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night.

The 25-lap victory was worth $8,000 to Stewart whose win was just the second of his career at the oval.

Both Stewart and Macri started the race on the front row with Stewart leading lap one before the red flag appeared on the second tour for a two-car tangle between Wayne Johnson and Landon Myers.

Third starter Daryn Pittman drove around Donny Schatz for third on the restart and then tried to close on the leaders but was unable to do so.

Stewart raced the next several laps well out in front before coming up on the rear of the field with 10 laps away, at which time both Macri and Pittman were able to close in.

The pursuing pair was within the same turn as Stewart, ready to tussle for the lead in three-car fashion when a caution flag unfurled with 12 laps completed for a stopped Brian Montieth.

Macri went to work at the new green and pulled a big slide job on Stewart as the pair entered the first corner to take control but Stewart dropped off of the cushion to reclaim the point as the pair raced onto the backchute.

At the same time, Donny Schatz got by Pittman for third, poised to challenge the front runners when a final yellow flag came out with nine laps to go, this time for a slowing Lance Dewease, who had been running fifth.

Schatz got under Macri for second on the restart and held the spot through lap 17 before Macri pulled another slide job in the first turn, this time to reclaim second spot.

But again, Macri was unable to hold the spot and he watched as Schatz went back around for the position.

Stewart was just beginning to come up on the rear of the field once more when the checkers fell on the field, allowing him to take the win by 1.599 seconds over Schatz.

Macri faded to third followed by Pittman and 10th starter Brock Zearfoss.

Sixth through 10th went to David Gravel, Brad Sweet, 21st starter Logan Schuchart, Carson Macedo and 24th starter Sheldon Haudenschild.

“I wouldn’t have guessed that our first win as a team would come at this racetrack,” said Stewart of his Indy Parts No. 71 racer.

“There is no better feeling. I haven’t had a lot of success here. I’ve had good runs but haven’t been able to capitalize on the success.”

Heats went to Dewease, Gravel, Stewart and Pittman with Stewart claiming the dash and Schuchart winning the B Main.

Dewease set fast time over the 35-car field with a lap of 17.025 seconds.

Feature Finish, 7/24/20:

410 sprints, 25 laps: 1. Shane Stewart, 2. Donny Schatz, 3. Anthony Macri, 4. Daryn Pittman, 5. Brock Zearfoss, 6. David Gavel, 7. Brad Sweet, 8. Logan Schuchart, 9. Carson Macedo, 10.

SHELDON HAUDENSCHILD SCORES ONE FOR THE OUTLAWS WITH FIRST CAREER LINCOLN VICTORY

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Saturday, July 25 (7:00pm) Lucas Oil Pro Pulling League: Tractor & Truck Pull

Wednesday, July 29 (7:30pm) Drydene 40 for 410 Sprints

Saturday, August 1 (7:30) DCS SCHOOL OF DRIVING NIGHT: 410 Sprints + 358 Sprints + Classic Cars

Abbottstown, PA (July 23, 2020) – Going into Thursday night’s Gettysburg Clash, Sheldon Haudenschild’s best finish at Lincoln was eighth. Not only was Haudenschild searching for his first career Lincoln victory, he was also vying for his first World of Outlaw win of 2020. Sheldon crossed both items off his check list with his $10,000 Gettysburg Clash victory.

After winning the dash, Haudenschild started on the pole of the 35-lap feature. Jacob Allen lined up second and got under Sheldon going down the backstretch as the two battled for the lead on the first lap. Allen won the race back to the flag stand and led lap 1.

The yellow flag came out on the first lap for Jeff Halligan who got spun around in turn 4. Alan Krimes also spun out as he avoided Halligan’s stopped car.

Allen opted for the inside on the double-file restart. Jacob went to the top in turn 1 as Sheldon tried the bottom. Allen held on to the lead over Haudenschild.

David Gravel was running fifth and wanted Parker Price-Miller’s fourth spot. Gravel slid up the track in front of Price-Miller in turns 3 and 4 to take the spot on lap 4.

As the leaders approached lapped traffic Haudenschild worked the bottom of turns 1 and 2 to reel in Allen.

With Allen and Haudenschild working through heavy lapped traffic Freddie Rahmer caught the leaders. Gravel who was running fourth was also closing in.

Sheldon was using the entire track to try and get by Jacob as Gravel got by Rahmer for third.

Allen and Haudenschild were side by side at the line on lap 15 with Sheldon getting the slight advantage for the lead.

Gravel tried to jump on the opportunity to take second from Allen, but the red flag came out on lap 19. Daryn Pittman was upside down in turn 2. Pittman had been running tenth.

Pittman’s crew were able to make repairs to the #83 in the work are and Pittman rejoined the field.

Haudenschild opted to start on the inside with Allen lined up to his outside. Gravel, Freddie and Logan Schuchart made up the rest of the top five on the restart.

Rahmer, Schuchart and Price-Miller were three wide going into turn 1 for fourth with Schuchart taking the spot from Rahmer. Freddie got fourth back from Logan on the following lap.

Danny Dietrich who started 14th was up to sixth as the front of the field entered lapped traffic on lap 24.

The caution flag flew again on lap 24. This time it was for Chase Dietz who got turned around in turns 3 and 4.

Once again Haudenschild elected to restart on the inside. On the restart a three wide battle for third between Rahmer, Schuchart and Dietrich. After contact in turn 1 the caution came out again as Rahmer shot up to the stop of the track collecting Brock Zearfoss.

With contact on the double-file restart, the field lined up for a single restart behind the leader, Haudenschild.

Schuchart got by Gravel to move into third. That left Gravel to fend off Dietrich as he challenged for the fourth spot.

Haudenschild caught the tail end of the field with five laps to go. The yellow flag flew again on lap 33 when Dietrich hit the wall in turn 4 ending his night.

With less than five laps to go, the field lined up for another single file restart. Haudenschild led Allen, Schuchart, Gravel and Price-Miller.

Carson Macedo got by Price-Miller to enter the top five with one lap to go.

Haudenschild won the Gettysburg Clash by 2.416 seconds over Schuchart who made a last lap pass on Allen for the runner up spot. Allen crossed the line third and Gravel finished fourth. Macedo finished fifth completing a sweep of the top five by the Outlaws.

Heat winners were Freddie Rahmer, Sheldon Haudenschild, Jeff Halligan and Parker Price-Miller.

This Saturday, July 25, Lincoln Speedway is back in action with the Lucas Pro Pulling League. Action starts at 7PM with pit gates open at 4:30PM and grandstand gates opening at 5PM. A quick turn around finds the 410 sprints competing in the $10,000 to win Drydene 40 on Wednesday, July 29.

Kyle Larson Grabs the Bull By the Horn to Pick Up Bob Weikert Memorial Finale

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Penn.- Standing in victory lane surrounded by photographers, well-wishers, family and crewmembers, Kyle Larson wondered out loud about the trophy he was about to receive.

“Where’s that bull and do we get both of those,” asked Larson, talking about the prize only matched in stature by the $15,000 payday coming his way too. “Damn that thing looks awesome! It’s going to look great in the trophy case!”

With the family of the legendary Bob Weikert presenting it, Larson literally and figuratively grabbed the bull by the horns as he completed a weekend sweep of the Bob Weikert Memorial, presented by Folkens Brothers Trucking and sponsored by Packers Concessions, at the Port Royal Speedway with the Ollies Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions Sunday night.

The win was worth $10,000, plus a $5000 bonus offered by the track for the overall winner of the two-day event and was Larson’s third consecutive at Port Royal dating back to the PA Speedweek finale. It made for a total of $26,029 combined earnings from two nights of racing.

“I was honestly a little worried the whole race, but I felt like once I got to the lead if I hit my marks good enough I’d be ok,” said Larson “We’re on a pretty good streak here and it was my goal this week to win one of those trophies and I’m happy to be standing here in front of these great fans.”

However, it did not come easy. Australian Kerry Madsen and World of Outlaws regular Carson Macedo led the field to the green flag with Madsen jumping out to the early lead. Macedo got a run on the top of the speedway in turn three and he pulled ahead to lead the first lap by a car length.

Meanwhile, fifth-place starter Aaron Reutzel was on the move early as he moved into third exiting turn two the following lap. Two laps later he used the high side in turns one and two to get by Madsen for the runner-up position and started tracking down Macedo.

Larson, who started sixth, followed suit behind Reutzel and he moved into third as well. Macedo held a near 2.0 second advantage at the time, but by lap seven Reutzel had nearly cut the advantage in half by running just off the wall at both ends of the speedway.

Reutzel threw a slide job attempt at Macedo entering turn one, but Macedo crossed back under to regain the lead on lap 8 and two laps later with the two nose to tail, Larson slid under both of them to take the lead for the first time of the night.

Macedo crossed back under him down the backstretch, but Larson had the momentum and he slid under the driver of his World of Outlaws team to hold the lead at the flag stand for lap 10. Reutzel followed into second and 10th place starter Lance Dewease threw his hat into the mix of things by taking the third spot.

One lap later Macedo’s hopes of picking up the victory ended as he came to a stop on the backstretch with a flat right-rear tire. He would rejoin the field after changing tires in the pits.

“I was working really hard to get around Aaron and I drove it in there pretty hard trying to get into second and we managed to go third to first,” said Larson. “I didn’t know what was going on with Carson, but I knew we had to get out front before Aaron.”

When green flag action returned, Larson jumped out to the lead again, while Dewease was able to duck under Reutzel entering turn three to pull into the runner-up spot at the line. Fifth-place starter Danny Dietrich, flying the legendary Weikert #29 colors, moved into the fourth position while eighth-place starter Jacon Allen moved into fifth.

Four laps later Reutzel used the top of the speedway again to fly back around Dewease to regain the runner-up spot and with Larson in lap traffic on lap 17, he began putting pressure on the leader. By lap 19 Reutzel had cut the distance in half and was using every inch of the speedway, banging his right rear off the fence multiple times along the way.

Larson was struggling to pass the lap car of Macedo and Reutzel attempted to pull a slider in turn three on lap 20, but Larson sped away on the top of the speedway before the caution waved for a slowing Sheldon Haudenschild on lap 23.

Larson once again sped away at the green flag, with Dewease overtaking Reutzel again for the lead. Two laps later Reutzel’s night would come to an end after a broken rear end that came after continuously slapping the wall on the top of the track.

Ninth-place starter Anthony Macri moved onto the podium after a return to green flag racing on the backstretch before the final caution of the event flew with three to go due Madsen shredding a right rear tire. The field was brought to an open-red flag for fuel in the meantime as well.

With three laps standing between him and victory, Larson wouldn’t be denied as he raced out to the lead again on the restart. Dewease was left to fend off Macri as Larson took the checkered flag by a margin of 1.350 second at the line.

Dewease, Macri, Dietrich and Allen made up the top-five while David Gravel, Brent Marks, Daryn Pittman, Ryan Smith and Dylan Cisney rounded out the top-ten.

“My car was just really good, and I could pace myself out front which was really nice.” Said Larson. “Aaron was running really there the first 10 laps. Once he broke and Lance moved into second, I knew he was running somewhere different than me and I did not really know what to do. But I knew as long as I didn’t see his nose, I was going to be ok.”

For Dewease, it was an improvement from the last few weeks in competition for him and his Kreitz Racing team, but he felt Larson was just the better car.

“After not being able to pass anyone last night, we were a lot better tonight but we’re only about three quarters to where we need to be,” said Dewease. “I wanted to let Kyle know that I was there that last restart and maybe get him nervous, but he’s just too good for that and we’ll take a second and work to get better.”

Heat race wins went to Allen, Marks, Cisney and Steve Buckwalter and were all worth $100 courtesy of Pro Lawn LLC of Liverpool, Pa and Sheldon Haudenschild earned $200 courtesy of Packer’s Concessions and Del Shank earlier in the night for setting fast time.

Other awards included a $500 bonus courtesy of the track for Dewease as the highest finishing top-20 points driver in the field, a $700 hard charger award for Brent Marks (+15) courtesy of Valley Supply and Mike Cleck Paving, while Sammy Swindell picked up a $100 Hard Luck bonus after dropping out early courtesy of Eric Ort and Scotty Schatz Motorsports.

(July 18, 2020) - Kyle Larson’s weekend in the Keystone State has been prosperous, to say the least, first claiming the Tommy Hinnershitz Classic at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday, July 17, then topping that prestigious open wheel triumph with a $10,000 victory during night one of Port Royal Speedway’s annual Bob Weikert Memorial featuring the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1.

Larson, who now owns a Series-leading nine All Star Circuit of Champions victories in 2020, started seventh on the Bob Weikert Memorial grid and rallied in a hurry, climbing his way to third just after a single-file restart with only ten laps checked off the counter, then taking second from former track champion, Logan Wagner, at the midpoint of the 30-lap program. At the time, Brent Marks was in charge of the top spot, using his outside-front row starting spot to garner the lead during the initial start.

With traffic acting as a moving roadblock, Larson was able to track down the leader by lap 17, racing to the back bumper of the CJB Motorsports entry before challenging Marks for the top spot two circuits later. An eventual drag race to the flagstand ended in Marks’ favor.

Beat by a nose at the line, Larson redeemed himself the following circuit and made the next move count, eventually slingshotting around Marks at the exit of turn four, narrowly squeezing by the former Outlaw and a lapped car while navigating the very topside of the speedway. The bold move was the winning move for the Elk Grove, California-native, gradually escaping to a lengthy advantage before the final checkers made their appearance.

The All Star victory was Larson’s fourth in four consecutive tries.

“It’s definitely an honor to win this race. Over the last few weeks, I’ve had a lot of people compare this run that we’re on to Doug Wolfgang. I never got the chance to watch him race, but I knew he was a legend. To read about all of his wins, and the places that he won at, is pretty unbelievable,” Kyle Larson said in victory lane, driver of the Paul Silva-owned/Finley Farms/Tarlton and Sons/Durst/Lucas Oil/Glenn Styres Racing/Priority Aviation/No. 57 sprint car. “Port Royal is starting to become one of my favorite tracks. And the atmosphere here is right up there with the Knoxville Nationals. We still have one more night to go, so hopefully we can park back up here in victory lane.”

Brent Marks held on to finish second at Port Royal Speedway, followed by Anthony Macri, Logan Wagner and Lance Dewease.

“My car was really, really good,” Larson continued. “I saw Brent (Marks) and Logan (Wagner) battling right before the last caution and I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to get by them. Thankfully, Logan was kinda searching for grip which allowed me to gain some momentum on the top and get around him. Then I was able to track Brent down in traffic. I could run about 80-90% and still take care of my tires. The last time I won here, my tires were pretty beat up because I was spinning them so bad. Tonight I just focused on trying to keep my wheel spin down. I’m glad it paid off.”

What’s Next:
Tony Stewart’s Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will conclude their trek through Central Pennsylvania with night two of the annual Bob Weikert Memorial at Port Royal Speedway on Sunday, July 19.

No Clear Favorite Entering Event With Exception Of True Outlaw Larson

Friday and Saturday events offer 8K and 20K to win

7/19/20

Mechanicsburg – The Champion Racing Oil World of Outlaws Sprint Cars Summer Nationals will take place this week at Williams Grove Speedway, slated for Friday and Saturday, July 24 and 25 at 7:30 pm.

The outlaws sprint cars will roll into Williams Grove Speedway for the two-day summer stand to battle the Pennsylvania Posse sprint car stars for the first time this season.

Both nights of this year’s Summer Nationals shows will include full programs of time trials, heats and feature events.

The July 24 outlaws-posse match will feature a 25-lap main paying $8,000 to win while the July 25 Saturday finale Champion Racing Oil Summer Nationals feature will offer $20,000 to the winner.

Adult general admission for each day of the Williams Grove outlaws program is set at $30 with youth ages 13 – 20 priced at $15. Kids ages 12 and under are always admitted for FREE at Williams Grove Speedway.

Just who will be leading the outlaws drivers when they hit Williams Grove this week remains to be seen.

Current series point leader Brad Sweet has been running a string of bad luck during his last several performances in series action and instead former Grove regular, Hanover native Logan Schuchart has been flexing some muscle.

Schuchart and his Bobby Allen-owned No. 1S machine have five total season wins to date including victories at Jackson Motorplex and Terre Haute while true outlaw Kyle Larson has recorded four to date as well including in the Brad Doty Classic at Attica, Ohio on July 14.

Sweet has been held winless since July 4 although his last win was his seventh of the year.

Of two total on the year, David Gravel’s most recent win was at Wilmot Raceway on July 11.

And just as no one has been dominant on the outlaws tour so far this season, there have been no repeat, regular competition winners in Williams Grove weekly action to date in 2020.

Wins have gone to Carson Macedo, Lance Dewease and Steve Buckwalter with Dewease leading season points. Kyle Larson has won twice but is not a track regular.

And so, the 2020 Williams Grove Summer Nationals will take the green flag with no clear favorite this time around save for the fact that true outlaw Larson of Elk Grove, California has to be considered a favorite wherever he races these days, IF he chooses to enter the event.

Since May 8, Larson has won 20 of 37 starts that he has made in either a sprint car or a midget to go along with eight runner-up finishes.

Last year, Tim Shaffer picked up the Friday Summer Nationals win while Donny Schatz took home the 20K payday on Saturday night.

Schatz has two wins on the outlaws season this year but he does sit a very, very close second to Sweet in the standings.

Summer Nationals sponsor Champion Brands Champion Racing Oil offers a wide variety of quality racing lubricants, oils, performance additives and fluids at outlets across the nation and online.

On the web, products can be purchased via Smileys Racing Products, Precise Racing Products and Speedway Motors along with many other internet-based companies.

MACEDO WIRES THE FIELD FOR $10,000 OUTLAW TUNE-UP WIN; Mitten Victorious in Sportsman’s Return to Lincoln; Drevicki Bests Midget Field for Victory

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Saturday, July 25 (7:00pm) Lucas Oil Pro Pulling League: Tractor & Truck Pull

Wednesday, July 29 (7:30pm) Drydene 40 for 410 Sprints

Abbottstown, PA (July 18, 2020) – World of Outlaws regular, Carson Macedo, invaded the pigeon hills on Saturday night and led all 35-laps of the Outlaw tune-up to pocket $10,000. The World of Outlaws will be in action at Lincoln for the Gettysburg Clash this coming Thursday, July 23 and Macedo is poised to be a threat to score a win for the Outlaws as they take on the PA Posse.

Macedo inherited the pole for the start of the event after scheduled pole-sitter, Brandon Rahmer, scratched for the night after experiencing engine issues after winning the dash.

Brandon’s brother, Freddie, started second and was the lone Posse member to start within the first two rows. Outlaw drivers, Daryn Pittman and Logan Schuchart shared the second row.

Macedo led the field into turn 1 running the bottom with Rahmer trying out the top side of the track. Schuchart moved up to third with Ryan Smith driving to fourth and Pittman settling into fifth.

Schuchart worked on reeling Rahmer in for second as both drivers used the high side to get around the 3/8th mile oval.

Brian Montieth challenged Pittman for fifth as Macedo entered lapped traffic on lap 6.

Rahmer and Schuchart caught Macedo in lapped traffic but just as they were making ground, Macedo started to pull away.

The yellow flag flew on lap 15 for Montieth and Tim Wagaman when the two got together in turn 4. Wagaman’s crew took advantage of the work period and got the car back out on the track.

Macedo paced the field for the single file restart with Rahmer, Schuchart, Smith and Pittman lined up behind him.

Rahmer tried the bottom on the restart with Macedo going to the top into turn 1. Smith and Schuchart raced side by side down the backstretch for third with Schuchart holding the advantage at the line.

Another caution came on lap 18. This time it was for Adam Wilt who came to a stop on the backstretch.

Once again Macedo led Rahmer, Schuchart, Smith and Pittman for the restart with Jacob Allen looking to make his way into the top five while restarting sixth.

Rahmer tried the bottom again this time trying a slide job on Macedo in turns 1 and 2 for the lead. It was to no avail as Macedo held onto the top spot.

Schuchart used the bottom in turns 1 and 2 to reel Rahmer in to start a battle for second. Smith was on Schuchart’s heel and made it a three car battle for second.

Smith got under Schuchart for third going into turn 3 on lap 24 but Logan beat him back to the line by a nose to hold on to the position.

Smith got back by Schuchart on the next lap and this time he beat him back to the flag stand to take the spot. Schuchart didn’t go away quietly and briefly took third back down the backstretch but Smith held the position at the line.

Lapped traffic came back into play on lap 27 for Macedo and the leaders.

Smith caught Rahmer and took second with 5 laps to go. Schuchart followed sending Rahmer to fourth.

Schuchart made quick work of Smith to take second and started to hunt down Macedo.

Logan threw everything he had at Macedo on the last lap going into turn 1 but Macedo pulled away and never looked back.

Macedo beat Schuchart to the checkered flag by .442 seconds to take the $10,000 prize and score his second win at the track. Smith crossed the line third and Rahmer held on to fourth. Pittman completed the top five.

Heat winners were Brian Montieth, Daryn Pittman, Matt Campbell & Brandon Rahmer. Brian Montieth set quick time over the 35-car field with a lap of 13.653 seconds.

Mitten Victorious in Sportsman’s Return to Lincoln

The winged Super Sportsman last raced at Lincoln in 2017. On Saturday night they were back in action as part of their Touring Series.

Russ Mitten lined up on the pole of the 20-lap feature with John Edkin sharing the front row.

Mitten took the lead when the green flag dropped with Luke Deatrick and Edkin battling side by side for second.

Kenny Edkin was up to third at the line on lap 1 after starting the feature sixth. Edkin was victorious in the first four stops of the touring series so far in 2020.

Kenny made quick work of John to take second on the next lap. Scott Dellinger was up to fourth from his seventh starting spot and had his eyes set on taking third from John.

Kenny Edkin was working on reeling in Mitten to challenge him for the race lead when the caution came out on lap 8 for Adam Wray. Wray had spun out in turns 3 and 4.

Kenny, John, Dellinger and Frankie Herr lined up behind Mitten for the single file restart.

Mitten and Kenny both went to the bottom in turn 1 as that was the preferred line around the track.

Kenny was on Mitten's bumper at the half way point of the race trying to take the lead from the six-time Lincoln feature winner.

The yellow flag came out on lap 11 for Tyler Wolford and Jay Fannasy who got turned around in turns 1 and 2. Both drivers were able to rejoin the field.

The leaders dove to the bottom going into turn 1 again on the restart.

Dellinger was working on getting his nose under John for third and the two were side by side at the line on lap 14 for the spot with John holding on to the position.

Another caution came on lap 14. This time it was for Doug Holler who got spun around in turn 4.

Mitten was able to pull away from Kenny down the backstretch but Edkin would close the gap in the corners.

Herr got by Dellinger for fourth coming out of turn 1 with five laps to go.

Kenny had closed the gap and was in position to make a move for the lead on Mitten with two laps to go. Mitten worked hard to stay on the bottom to take the line away from Edkin.

Mitten beat Kenny to the checkered flag by .413 seconds. John crossed the line third. Herr, the all-time leader in Sportsman wins at the track, finished fourth. Dellinger completed the top five.

Heat winners were Scott Dellinger and Russ Mitten.

Drevicki Bests Midget Field for Victory

Steve Drevicki added his name to the prestigious list of midget winners at Lincoln with his win on Saturday night. The list includes Parnelli Jones, Van May, Rico Abreu and Jimmy Maguire just to name a few.

Adam Pierson and Jamie Speers shared the front row of the 20-lap feature with Steve Craig and Tanner Allen in row two.

Pierson took the lead when the green flag dropped with Drevicki making his way to second from his fifth starting spot.

The red flag came out on lap 1 for a three car pile up in turn 1. The drivers involved were Speers, Craig and Allen.

Pierson led Drevicki, Kenney Johnson, Zach Curtis and Eric Heydenreich to the cone for the single file restart.

Drevicki had the lead coming out of turn 2 on the restart and held the spot to lead lap 2. Pierson stayed with Drevicki and tried to get the top spot back while a battle ensued behind the leaders for third.

Johnson was doing his best to hold off Heydenreich as he tried to take third. Heydenreich took the spot on lap four.

Drevicki led Pierson, Heydenreich, Johnson and Curtis at the halfway point of the race.

Heydenreich was gaining on the leaders and got under Pierson in turn 2 on lap 11 for second. Eric then went to work on reeling in Drevicki for the lead.

As Drevicki and Heydenreich worked through lapped traffic the two split to get around a lapped car in turn 1 on lap 14 making for an exciting moment on the track.

On lap 17 Heydenreich was out of sorts as he battled Drevicki for the lead coming out of turn 2 and pulled off the track.

With Heydenreich out of the picture it was smooth sailing for Drevicki to the checkered flag.

Larson Continues Bringing The Heat, Rockets To Williams Grove All Stars Tommy Win

Kevin Nouse gets 358 sprints

7/17/20

Mechanicsburg –Kyle Larson won his second race in three starts on Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway, scoring the All Stars Circuit of Champions Tommy Hinnershitz Classic in thrilling fashion to take home a $5,000 payday.

Two weeks ago, Larson pocketed his first career oval win by taking the $15,000 Mitch Smith Memorial and with the popular win in the Tommy Classic, Larson has now stamped his mark on two of the oval’s biggest, most historical sprint car events.

Elsewhere, Kevin Nouse rode home the winner in the 20-lap 358 sprint main, wiring the field from the pole for this second oval win of the season as well.

Larson was originally slated to go off sixth in the 30-lap All Stars Tommy Classic field but when Sammy Swindell spewed the contents of his oil tank all around the speedway during the parade lap, the field was stopped, Swindell was sidelined and Larson advanced to fifth for the initial green flag.

Polesitter Anthony Macri, who was trying to get his first oval 410 sprint win ever, blasted into the lead when action got started over Kerry Madsen, Carson Macedo, Daryn Pittman and Larson.

Macri entered the rear of the field on the eighth lap with a two second lead over Madsen but then used up all of that advantage on lap 10 when he jumped the first turn cushion and all but spun the car, allowing his pursuers to close up all the daylight that he had built over them.

By lap 13, it was all that Macri could handle to keep Madsen at bay with Macedo and Pittman in hot pursuit but then the leader got a reprieve at the halfway point when Josh Baughman rolled to a stop, bringing out the races only caution flag.

And just prior to that yellow, Larson had come to life by blasting under Macedo for fourth and Pittman for third in the second turn only to see the yellow negate the move.

On the restart Madesen kept pace with the leader again and on lap 19 he was able to get alongside Macri for the lead in turns three and four only to see Macri bring the field back to the stripe.

And by that time, Larson was cooking on the topside, up to third and gaining on the front-runners.

It was with an amazing closing rate at the end of the backstretch that Larson did his best dirty work, making up dramatic ground on Madsen for second to take the spot with eight laps to go.

At that point, Macri was again working traffic and Larson was forced to work the field as well all the while fighting a tightening race car as he tried to work the high cushion in turns three and four.

Twice Larson jumped the lip in turn four but gathered up his errant machine to continue the track down, which finally came to an end with another amazing, accordion-style blast into the third turn with three laps to go that netted him the point and the feature win.

From there, the Elk Grove, California native went on to post the victory by 1.338 seconds over Macri.

“I could carry a lot of speed down the straightaways,” Larson said.

“It was getting super tight on the cushion in four and I kept messing up,” he said of his late race cushion jumps that he eventually overcame.

Madsen rode home third followed by David Gravel and Pittman.

Sixth through 10th went to Brock Zearfoss, 17th starter Danny Dietrich, Macedo, Aaron Reutzel and Freddie Rahmer.

Heats went to Brent Marks, Jason Solwold, Reutzel and Macedo with twin dashes going to Macri and Madsen.

Lucas Wolfe won the B Main.

Fast time was set by Larson with a lap of 16.950 seconds.

Nouse led all the way in the 358 sprint main with Doug Hammaker finishing a close second after a lap 19 restart bunched the field.

Chris Frank, Derek Locke and Tyler Brehm completed the top five finishers.

Heats went to Steve Owings, Locke, and Hammaker with Cody Fletcher taking the consolation race.

All Stars Invade Williams Grove To Contest Tommy Classic This Week, Locals Tune Up For Outlaws Summer Nationals

358 sprints round out Diamond Series racing card July 17

7/12/20

Mechanicsburg – Williams Grove Speedway will host the All Stars Circuit of Champions Sprint Cars as they compete in the Tommy Hinnershitz Classic against the Pennsylvania Posse Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint cars coming up this Friday, July 17 at 7:30 pm.

The 2020 Tommy Classic will pay $5,000 to the winner of the 30-lap affair and it will serve as the tune-up for the World of Outlaws Summer Nationals coming up at the track on July 24 and 25.

Also on the July 17 racing program will be the HJ Towing & Recovery 358 sprint cars. As a note to race teams, please be aware that 358 sprints will be pitted in the back parking lot for this event.

Adult general admission for the show is $20 with ages 13-20 admitted for just $10. Kids ages 12 and under are always FREE at Williams Grove Speedway.

The race will be the first of three appearances by the All Stars still remining this season on the Williams Grove Schedule.

Last year in the All Stars Tommy Classic, All Stars regular and champion Aaron Reutzel of Clute, Texas, took the win during what was a historic year at the track for the All Stars and Reutzel.

Just a few weeks earlier, in another All Stars program at Williams Grove, Reutzel took a popular win and in doing so became the first card-carrying, All Stars series traveler to ever win a race at the track dating back to 1970 when the series began.

And Reutzel is likely to be out front again this week at Williams Grove as he is the current All Stars point leader over California’s Cory Eliason, with five series wins on the season to date.

Other All Stars expected to invade aside from the top two include Paul McMahan, Skyler Gee, Zeb Wise, Josh Baughman and Greg Wilson.

So far this season at Williams Grove, Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint car winners have been Carson Macedo, Lance Dewease, Kyle Larson and Steve Buckwalter.

Dewease is a six-time Tommy Classic winner.

Part of the 2020 Hoosier Diamond Series at Williams Grove, the Tommy Classic is run in honor of the late all-time great Hinnershitz of Oley, Pennsylvania.

Hinnershitz won the very first race contested at Williams Grove Speedway in 1939.

All Stars Will Honor Hinnershitz Career With Memorial Classic Friday

7/12/20

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Adult general admission for the July 17 racing program is set at $20 with students ages 13-20 admitted for just $10.

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

JEFF HALLIGAN OVER DYLAN CISNEY IN SPRINT CAR THRILLER AT PORT ROYAL SPEEDWAY

Gregg Satterlee Wins $3,000 Late Model Championship and Andrew Yoder wins Limited Late Models

PORT ROYAL, PA – Dylan Cisney threw everything he had at Jeff Halligan, but Halligan never flinched holding back Cisney for his first career Port Royal Speedway Weikert’s Livestock Sprint car feature win Saturday night by .061.

Cisney would slide Halligan in turns one and two, but Halligan stayed on the gas on the cushion maintaining the lead off two. Halligan had the bottom working in turns three and four while Cisney stayed on the top.

Cisney cleared him twice, but Halligan turned back under Cisney retaking the lead off turn two each time. Cisney had a great run around three and four on the final lap as they were side-by-side down the frontstretch with Halligan nipping him at the line earning $4,000.

“I was pressing my luck, especially the one time I snuck in by him,” Halligan said. “I knew I was pressing my luck. He could have easily closed the door on me and screwed me up big time. I knew if he was going to keep doing it, eventually he wasn’t going to leave that little hole open, so I started cutting down. The first 19 laps, we were getting such great drive off the corners especially four, but after that, I was really struggling. It’s awesome that we won. We did a lot to the car this week and our hard work paid off.”

“I didn’t think there was room for a car, but he kept sticking it in there,” Cisney said. “I tried to drive in there a little deeper and a little faster and clear him and it took me a couple times to do it. It was good, hard, clean racing. That was a lot of fun sliding back and forth with each other.”

Halligan was fast from the start.

“We were good all night,” Halligan said. “I knew if we could hit it tonight in this feature, we’d have a shot at driving past the cars in front of me because you had to get your racecar good, and we were good when we had this car here the last time we got second. At the end, coming off of four, I wasn’t getting the drive I was getting before. I had the wing all the way trunked. It was just enough.”

A five-car crash in the first turn marred the start of the Sprint car main event. Kevin Nouse and Logan Wagner made contact and slid across the track collecting Lucas Wolfe and crashing hard. Kyle Reinhardt and Landon Myers had nowhere to go and got tangled up as well. All drivers were reported okay. Reinhardt and Myers made repairs and returned.

Steve Buckwalter grabbed the lead when the feature resumed. Halligan grabbed the runner-up spot from Ryan Taylor as Cisney and Brent Marks traded sliders for third spot.

Halligan closed and took the lead from Buckwalter with an inside pass of turn four on lap 10. He pulled away.

Halligan began lapping slower cars as Cisney and Marks tried to settle third spot. Buckwalter slowed with six to go bringing out the yellow.

Cisney took second from Marks on the restart. The next time into one, Cisney tried a slider, but Halligan stayed on the cushion and never lifted. They were closer yet the next time around.

With a few to go, Cisney cleared the slider, but Halligan turned his car back under Cisney’s maintaining the lead off two. The final lap Cisney got a great run, but Halligan found just enough speed off the bottom of four to nip him at the line.

Marks, Anthony Macri and Taylor completed the top five. AJ Flick, Tyler Reeser, Kody Lehman, Mike Wagner and Robbie Kendall rounded out the top 10.

Heat races for the 30 cars in the 410 Sprint pits were won by Flick, Halligan, Cisney and Marks. Anthony Fiore won the B-main, but his car wouldn’t fire for the A-main.

Sprint Car Feature (25 laps): 1. Jeff Halligan. 2. Dylan Cisney. 3. Brent Marks. 4. Anthony Macri. 5. Ryan Taylor. 6. AJ Flick. 7. Tyler Reeser. 8. Kody Lehman. 9. Mike Wagner. 10.

Logan Wagner. 22. Kevin Nouse. 23. Lucas Wolfe. 24. Anthony Fiore.

Did Not Qualify: Jeff Miller, Dustin Baney, Nicole Bower, Jonathan Jones, Brie Hershey, Drew Ritchey.

Super Late Models

Bryan Bernheisel led the opening lap of the 30-lap main event for the River Valley Builders super late models. Gregg Satterlee used an inside pass in turn two taking over the top spot.

Kyle Lee moved into second and Andy Haus third as Satterlee increased his lead.

The yellow flew with 13 laps completed as Lee had cut into Satterlee’s advantage.

Sattlerlee controlled the restart and pulled away continuing to dominate the main event.

A yellow with five to go put Lee back on Satterlee’s bumper erasing a 3.7-second lead. Ross Robinson passed Lee on the restart, but had nothing for Satterlee as he scored his third Port Royal win of the season by 1.5 seconds.

“I’ll take it,” Satterlee said. “Any time you can get up here in victory lane is a lot of fun. I’m glad we got a front row starting spot tonight. It wasn’t as easy to move around tonight. Fortunate to get a good redraw and start up front and made my job a little bit easier. I was able to find a line that seemed to work best with the car and make laps. It’s good to get a win.”

Robinson, Lee, Haus and Colton Flinner completed the top five. Marvin Winters, Jim Yoder, Dylan Yoder, Tyler Bare and Gene Knaub rounded out the top 10.

Saturday, July 25 (7:30pm) Lucas Oil Pro Pulling League: Tractor & Truck Pull

Abbottstown, PA (July 11, 2020) – Freddie Rahmer lined up ninth for the 30-lap feature on John Gleim Excavating Night. Rahmer reeled in early race leader, Billy Dietrich, in lapped traffic to take the lead and cruised to his third win at the track this year.

Dietrich started on the pole with Dylan Norris to his outside. Dietrich took the early race lead using the high line around the track. Norris also chose the high side while Tim Glatfelter went to the bottom to challenge Norris for second. Matt Campbell entered the mix and made it a three-way battle for second.

Norris continued to use the high line and pulled away from Glatfelter and Campbell. While Glatfelter and Campbell continued their battle for third Brian Monteith passed by both of them to advance from fifth to third in one turn. Freddie Rahmer followed and went to work on Montieth right away. Rahmer tried a slide job for third on lap 5 in turns 1 and 2 but Montieth held the spot.

Montieth tried a slide job of his own on lap 6 to take second from Norris in turns 1 and 2. Once again Rahmer followed as race leader, Dietrich entered lapped traffic on lap 6.

Rahmer got by Montieth for second on lap 8 and went to work on tracking down Dietrich in lapped traffic. Rahmer caught up with Dietrich on lap 9 and got by him for the lead with a slide job in turn 2.

Workman’s Trip to Central PA Pays Off with Win

Billy Workman Jr. made the 7-hour trip from North Carolina to race at Lincoln on Saturday night. The long haul paid off in more ways than one for the driver as he won the feature and got laps in at the track that will host the US Legends Dirt Nationals in September.

Brent Marquis and Travis McClelland shared the front row for the 20-lap feature with Workman lined up third.

Marquis took the lead at the start by a nose over McClelland. The two raced side by side with McClelland leading lap 1 and Bill Diehl moving into second.

Scott Houdeshell and Workman battled door to door for third. Workman took the spot and got his nose under Diehl for second but couldn’t make the pass before the caution came out on lap 3 for debris in turn 4.

McClelland led Diehl, Workman, Houdeshell and Marquis to the cone for the single file restart.

Workman drove under McClelland going into turn 1 to take the lead. McClelland kept Workman close with Diehl right on his bumper.

Workman created some distance between McClelland, but Travis was not able to shake Diehl off his tail.

Jeremy Hahn fell off the pace going down the back stretch bringing out the caution on lap 10.

Chris Transeau and Jeremy Ott both restarted outside the top 5 and both wanted to get by Marquis and find themselves inside the top 5.

Both Transeau and Ott drove by Marquis on lap 12 sending Brent to seventh.

Diehl got a solid run off of turn 2 on lap 14 to get a nose under McClelland but couldn’t make the pass. The yellow flag flew again on lap 15 as Chuck Dell, Joe Ryan Osborne and Austin Bellamare got together in turn 4.

After restarting third Diehl still had his sight set on second but McClelland was focused on taking the top spot from Workman. McClelland got his nose under Workman with two laps to go but couldn’t get by the invader.

Workman got to the checkered flag ahead of McClelland. Diehl finished third and Houdeshell crossed the line fourth. Ott held on to finish fifth.

Kissinger Climbs To Selinsgrove 360 Open Victory Lane For Biggest Career Win

Hometown drive Duke claims 305 sprints, Fulkroad nets limited lates

7/11/20

Selinsgrove, Pa. – Ryan Kissinger of Bloomsburg scored the biggest win of his sprint car career at Selinsgrove Speedway on Saturday night, walking off with the 20th annual, 30-lap National Open for 360 sprint cars worth $5,000.

The 305 sprint main saw hometown driver Ken Duke Jr. score the victory while the limited late model main went to Jared Fulkroad.

The racing program was delayed several hours by intermittent rains that hit the track just prior to starting time but after the surface was worked back into shape, the beautiful smooth track produced soaring speeds for the sprint cars and late models.

Johnathan Preston of Romulus, New York grabbed the early lead in the 360 Open followed by third starter Kissinger aboard his No. 66.

Preston had Kissinger challenging from the start as the pair raced by the flagstand lap after lap nose to tail for control.

Kissinger made good time on the high side in the third and fourth turns and nearly snagged the lead first on the third circuit before falling back in line only to complete the pass a lap later.

Preston then charged back to Kissinger’s outside as the pair throttled into the first corner on lap five but Kissinger was able to bite fast on the bottom exiting the corner to remain in command.

Preston tried again in the same set of turns the next time around to regain control but again Kissinger was up to the task and he entered the rear of the field with 10 laps in the books.

The only caution flag of the event unfurled on the 12th lap, placing Preston, Davie Franek, Adam Carberry and Mark Smith in line for the restart.

Preston was unable to challenge on the restart and by lap 21, Kissinger was again working the rear of the field.

The leader then nearly gave the race away in traffic with five laps to go when contact with a lapped car low in the middle of the first and second turns found him turn the car sideways and nearly spin.

Luckily, his advantage over the field at that point was large enough so that he was able to right his sprinter and maintain control.

Preston however was able to close somewhat on Kissinger during the final two laps, crossing the line less than a half straightaway behind, a margin of .908 seconds.

The win was Kissinger’s sixth at the Snyder County speedplant.

Davie Franek finished in third followed by Mark Smith and Adam Carberry.

Sixth through 10th went to Derek Locke, Ryan Smith, Paulie Cologiovanni, Jesse Pruchnick and Austin Bishop.

Heats went to Kissinger, Smith and Franek.

Ken Duke Jr. would lead all 20 laps of the 305 sprint main as second and third spots changed several times during the event.

Doug Dodson took second from Derek Hauck on the eighth tour but not before Hauck raced in Duke’s shadow for the lead the first four laps.

Garrett Bard motored into third, around Hauck with eight laps to go but then had Devin Adams take over the spot with five laps to go.

Meanwhile, Duke cruised out in front to the victory by 2.512 seconds.

It was his third career win at his hometown track.

Dodson rode home second followed by Adams, Jake Frye and Bard.

Heats went to Will Brunson, Jaremi Hanson, Adams and Fred Arnold with Kyle Keen taking the consolation race.

Jared Fulkroad won the limited late model main to score his second career win at the track by leading all 15 laps over Todd Snook.

JR Toner, Zach Kauffman and Shaun Miller rounded out the top five finishers.

Heats went to Fulkroad and Snook.

Buckwalter Wires Field For Williams Grove 410 Sprint Win, Macri Scores URC Sprints

7/10/20

Mechanicsburg – Steve Buckwalter of Royersford wired the field for the 410 sprint car victory at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, outrunning Matt Campbell to the checkers for his 11th career speedway win.

The victory tied him on the oval all-time win list with Randy Wolfe.

In the 25-lap URC Sprint feature event, Anthony Macri of Dillsburg took a convincing victory after wrestling with Josh Weller for the lead.

Buckwalter grabbed the lead in the 25-lap 410 sprint main when action began with Kyle Reinhardt giving chase.

The leaders entered the rear of the field on the eighth lap but even in traffic, as long as a lane was open, Buckwalter was good to go as he navigated the field perfectly.

But when both lanes ahead were blocked by cars racing for position with nine laps to go, Reinhardt was able to drive right up on the leader and make his move.

However his move failed when an attempted pass on the bottom in the first and second turns virtually stalled his movement on the 17th tour and instead Buckwalter got away on the backchute.

That near stall allowed the third place car of Matt Campbell to blast around for the second spot but then Campbell soon lost ground when he nearly looped his mount on the second turn cushion a lap later.

All of this put Buckwalter within four laps of the win but again heavy traffic entered the picture just in front of the leader and during the last two laps, Cambpell was able to close dramatically in order to make a final turn move for the win.

The Fawn Grove driver swept across the bottom of turns three and four and nearly came up with the win but instead fell in line nose to tail with the winner as the pair crossed the finish line.

Buckwalter’s margin of victory was .223 seconds.

Reinhardt was third followed by Ryan Smith and Brent Marks.

Sixth through 10th went to Brian Montieth, Danny Dietrich, Freddie Rahmer, Anthony Macri and Lance Dewease.

Heats went to Buckwalter, Reinhardt and Adrian Shaffer.

Justin Barger tried to take control from the pole at the start of the URC Sprint main but third starter Josh Weller had other ideas.

He passed both front row cars including Anthony Macri in the first and second turns when the green flag appeared.

Macri was running in second when the caution flag appeared on the sixth lap.

Macri took the lead from Weller on the restart before another yellow flag slowed the pace a lap later.

Weller served notice he wasn’t so easily set back when action resumed by driving back into control in the third turn only to see Macri return the favor.

Then Weller again retook command moments later in the first turn only again to watch as Macri reclaimed the point.

And this time Macri would not relinquish the top spot, instead driving away to the win by 3.577 seconds.

Weller got another chance on a lap-12 restart but Macri was up to the task for the win.

In fact, he took no prisoners on his way to his first ever sprint car win at the track, threading the needle for a three-wide move going into the first turn with two laps to go as he split a pair of backmarkers.

Fourth starter Steve Buckwalter motored into second with eight laps to go but couldn’t close on the leader.

Weller was third followed by Tyler Ross and 19th starter Jason Shultz who put on a smooth drive to the front.

Sixth through 10th went to Derek Locke, Lucas Wolfe, Paulie Colagiovanni, Adam Carberry and Justin Barger.

Heats went to Barger, Curt Michael and Jonathan Preston with Shultz scoring the consolation.

~ Selinsgrove Speedway ~
A New Identity In Twenty-Twenty

First Ever USAC Silver Crown Race Coming To Selinsgrove Speedway August 9!

Just One Month Remains Until The Big Bill Holland Classic, 74th Anniversary Race

USAC East 360 sprints join champ cars for wingless Selinsgrove sprint extravaganza

Seats now on sale

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

7/8/20

Selinsgrove, Pa. – In just one month, on Sunday, August 9, the cars and stars of the USAC Silver Crown Series will invade Selinsgrove Speedway for the first time in the history of either entity, and its sure to be a really, really big show!

On tap will be the USAC Bill Holland Classic, Selinsgrove Speedway 74th Anniversary Race at 7 pm.

The prestigious event, meant to honor the very first winner of any race at Selinsgrove Speedway in 1946,will go 74 laps in distance and pay $8,000 to win out of a total champ car purse worth $33,000!

The big car, big race is a “can’t miss” Selinsgrove Speedway event for the ages that will showcase not only an extremely rare contest for wingless champ car sprints at the big half-mile but it will do so in an equally rare long-distance event.

The United States Auto Club has only ever conducted one other race at Selinsgrove Speedway, which was a wingless sprint car event in 1971, won by Mitch Smith of Linglestown.

The USAC Silver Crown Selinsgrove event coming up on August 9 will be the first ever Silver Crown race at the speedway. And it will be just the second time in history that a USAC event of any kind has been staged at the oval since USAC formed out of the defunct AAA in 1955.

Bill Holland of Reading won the very first race ever run at Selinsgrove Speedway on July 20, 1946 before going on to win the 1949 Indianapolis 500 after a legendary career in AAA sanctioned racing contests across the nation.

Holland was posthumously inducted into the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame in 2005.

Among the USAC Silver Crown standouts expected to compete in the Holland Classic, five-time and defending Silver Crown champion Kody Swanson of Zionsville, Indiana, is at the top of the list.

Others expected to enter include 2016 Silver Crown champion “The Bear” Chris Windom, Canton, Illinois; USAC Sprint champion Brady Bacon, Broken Arrow, Oklahoma; “Sunshine” Tyler Courtney, Indianapolis, Indiana; CJ Leary, Greenfield, Indiana; and Justin Grant, Ione, California, among many others.

The wingless USAC EAST 360 Sprints will join the USAC Silver Crown Series for a wingless sprint car extravaganza at Selinsgrove Speedway on August 9.

The highly anticipated oval event is another Slivinski Law Offices Super 7 Series race on the 2020 Selinsgrove Speedway schedule.

Reserved admission/seats are now on sale for the big August 9 USAC attack at Selinsgrove Speedway.

Port Royal Speedway Returns With Summer Championship for Super Late Models; 410 Sprint Cars and Limited Late Models Also on Card

By - Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Penn- (June 8, 2020)- On the heels of two excellent nights of Pennsylvania Speedweek competition, the Port Royal Speedway returns to action this Saturday, June 11, with a three-division show featuring the Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Cars, the River Valley Builders Super Late Models and the Selinsgrove Ford Limited Late Models.

Most recently in Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Car competition, Kyle Larson picked up the victory at ‘The Speed Palace’ to wrap of the 2020 PA Speedweek title. Not only was the win the first career triumph at the Juniata County oval for Larson, but it put an end to a four-in-a-row streak at the Speedway by Anthony Macri.

Macri will be looking to get things back on track following a mechanical issue Saturday night, while current points leader Logan Wagner will be looking for his first triumph of the 2020 racing season. Wagner holds a 65-point advantage in the season standings over his father, Mike Wagner, followed by AJ Flick (-255), TJ Stutts (-295) and Lance Dewease (-315).

For the Super Late Models, it will be their Summer Championship night and they will be racing for an increased $3000 to win and it’ll also be $300 to start. They will partake in single car time trials for the first time this season and we will use the PA Speedweek format for the entirety of the night. We will also utilize ‘Deleware Restarts’ during all racing activities for the Super Late Models as well.

Rick Eckert was the last driver to visit victory lane in Super Late Model competition, but he stated last week in victory lane that he would be traveling in the coming weeks, so we’ll have a new winner this weekend. Gregg Satterlee has won twice this season as well entering the weekend.

Opening day victor, Trevor Feathers, currently holds the season standings points lead by 55 points over Colton Flinner. Mike Lupfer (-100), Andy Haus (-115) and last year’s champion Dylan Yoder (-120) complete the top five.

The Limited Late Models will make their second appearance of the season as well and last year’s champion Andrew Yoder picked up the win in mid-June when they last visited the Speedway. Yoder holds a 15-point advantage over Dillan Stake with Ryan Zook (-25), Devin Hart (-30) and Todd Snook (-35) filling out the top five.

Gates are set to open at 4:00pm EST, while racing is scheduled to begin at 7:00pm EST.

The Speedway will continue to operate using all CDC guidelines and we ask fans continue to practice social distancing measures. Masks are highly encouraged, and we continue to offer sanitizing stations throughout the facilities.

If you are sick or not feeling well, we ask that you please stay home out of the respect for your fellow race fans. The safety of our drivers, fans and employees remain a priority and for fans who can’t make it, racing will be available on PPV via FloSports and Speed Shift TV.

Prices are as follow:

The total purse for the big 360 sprint event was already posted at nearly $17,000 and now the newly posted $1,000 Open Option bonus for a first time oval winner pushes that total to nearly 18K.

Larson Picks Up First Career Port Royal Speedway Win and is Crowned 2020 PA Speedweek Champion; Eckert Wins Late Model Feature

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Penn- (July 5, 2020) Kyle Larson arrived in Central Pennsylvania nine days ago for the 30th Annual Pennsylvania Speedweek presented by Red Robin Gourmet Burgers as one of the hottest drivers in the country. It's safe to say that after the completion of Saturday night's 2nd Annual Greg Hodnett Classic at Port Royal Speedway, he's not just hot, but scorching.

Larson overtook Logan Wagner on lap 10 and held off the heavy pursuit of Brent Marks and Rico Abreu for the remaining 20 laps to pick up his first career win at the Juniata County oval. The win was worth $10, 027 and put the final touches on what was a dominating PA Speedweek for the California native that had him capturing four victories and a championship when all was said and done.

He also earned an additional $1,027 courtesy of Ron Rutherford and fans for stopping the streak of four in a row by Anthony Macri at 'The Speed Palace'.

"This place has turned into maybe my favorite racetrack and it's one of the nicest dirt tracks in the world right now," said Larson. "Seeing the crowds so amped up and the atmosphere here, it's just really cool for us drivers and I really wanted to get a win here to back up Williams Grove."

Anthony Macri kicked off the night by earning $250 for fast time courtesy of Packer's Concessions, LLC. and it appeared that we might be in for a fifth straight triumph for the Dillsburg, Pa. native.

However after a top eight re-draw, it was current Weikert's Livestock 410 Sprint Car point leader Logan Wagner along with Marks leading the field to the green flag.

Wagner got the early jump and quickly moved to the top of the speedway entering turn one, but Marks threw a viscous slider underneath him to briefly take the lead before Wagner pulled back in front of him down the backstretch to lead lap one.

However, racing would be halted after Kyle Moody got turned upside down in turn one the following circuit and collected Jason Schultz. Both drivers would be ok, but neither would rejoin the field.

On the restart, Marks tried again, with Wagner crossing back under him to take the advantage again on the backstretch. By then Larson, who had advanced to third form the fourth starting position on the opening lap, was heavy on the tail of Marks.

He ducked under Marks entering turn one and the two raced side-by-side, with Larson holding second by a nose at the line.

By lap five, Wagner held close to a 2.0 second advantage over Larson, but within two laps the advantage was cut in half. With Wagner heavy in lap traffic on lap 9, Larson pulled to the tail tank of the Zemco sprinter coming to the line and he rocketed by using a slide job in turn 1 to take the lead.

Marks and Abreu followed by for second and third as Wagner was suffering from a mechanical issue after making contact with a lap car.

For the next three laps, Marks and Abreu stayed within striking distance and when Larson got caught up in lap traffic on lap 13, Marks capitalized and he pulled even with Larson down the backstretch. The two race side by side through turn three and four and Marks got credit for the led lap by a nose.

However, Larson was not to be denied and he got back around Marks exiting turn two to re-take the lead on lap 14. Over the next ten laps, Larson raced through lap traffic with a sense of urgency and he held a nearly 1.2 second advantage on lap 24.

Danny Dietrich, who suffered motor issues all night had climbed inside the top ten from the 21st starting spot, brought out the caution when he came to a stop in turn one on lap 25. This allowed Marks and Abreu to try and make a move.

However Larson was just too good and he quickly sped away at the green flag while Marks and Abreu duked it out for second.

The final caution of the evening flew with one lap to go when Anthony Macri slowed on the front stretch , thus guaranteeing a new winner for the first time in four races and giving Marks and Abreu one last shot.

When the green flag flew, showing he would not be denied, Larson jumped out to a sizeable advantage. Ultimately he crossed under the checkered flag with an advantage of 1.556 second over Marks, Abreu, Brock Zearfoss and Lance Dewease.

Logan Wagner, Mike Wagner, Ryan Smith, Kyle Reinhardt and AJ Flick rounded out the top ten. Dylan Cisney charged forward form 23rd to finish 11th and was the night's hard charger worth $500 courtesy of Valley Supply and Mike Cleck Paving & Sealcoating, Inc.

"What an amazing racecar! I had so much grip out there by myself on those restarts that I could just run off the cushion a bit and keep good throttle," said Larson. "It’s been a long week but it was really cool and worth it to win this championship and close it out with a win here too."

For Marks he was resigned to the fact that Larson was the better car, but believes his team is set up for multiple wins in the future.

"Those guys are really tough right now and he is one heck of a driver," said Marks. "We have a really fast racecar and I think we only finished outside the top ten one time all week. So to compete against competition like Kyle and hold our own, it says we are pretty close."

Super Late Models

Rick Eckert picked up his tenth career River Valley Builders Super Late Model feature win over Colton Flinner, Andy Haus, Jason Covert and Dylan Yoder. The win was worth $2500.

Jason Miller and Nick Dickson led the field to the green flag with Miller getting the early jump on the field. However, Dickson got a run on the bottom of the speedway exiting turn four to lead lap one by a nose.

Sixth starter Flinner was on the move early and he moved into the third position by lap two. He was challenging Miller for second on the outside of the speedway when the caution came out for Dillan Stake on the backstretch.

On the restart, Flinner once again got a run on the top of the track in turns one and two, when Miller slid up in front of him and the two made contact. Miller got turned around to bring out the caution. He would rejoin the field.

On the restart Flinner used momentum off the top off the speedway to pull even with Dickson coming out of turn four and he led lap four my a car-length.

Meanwhile Eckert, who started ninth, was starting to make his presence known. He was fifth on the restart and by lap five he made a pass for third on the backstretch and followed it up by taking second from Dickson on the front stretch.

Eckert took a peak to the bottom of Flinner on lap nine, but could not complete the pass. Over the next eight laps ,Eckert remained steady on his line. He was trailing by .5 seconds when Flinner jumped the curb and got into the outside guardrail, allowing Eckert to make the pass for the lead.

Over the remaining eight laps, Eckert went untouched and he crossed under the checkered flag by a margin of 5.180 seconds over Flinner, Haus, Covert and Yoder. Kyle Lee, Dickson, Jim Yoder, Kyle Knapp and Trevor Feathers completed the top 10.

"Colton does a really good job up there on the cushion and he drives it hard," said Eckert. "I didn’t think I could c]pass him without him making a mistake so I just tried to stay as close as I could and hope for an opportunity."

Flinner said that his car was starting to lose grip towards the end of the race and that he was happy with the second place finish.

"The second half of the race I was really holding on as much as I could," said Flinner. "It just didn’t happen tonight and that's ok. We’ll be back again and try to end up one spot better."

FROM WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY

JULY 3, 2020

KYLE LARSON WINS MITCH SMITH MEMORIAL AND $15K FRIDAY NIGHT AT

WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY

MECHANICSBURG, PA – Kyle Larson grabbed the lead from Brent Marks and

went on to win the Mitch Smith Memorial Friday night at Williams Grove

Speedway -the crown jewel of Pennsylvania Sprint Car Speedweek.

Larson’s first career Williams Grove win was worth $15,000. It was his

third win of Speedweek and nearly clinched the series championship for

the Elk Grove, Calif., driver.

“I had a really, really good car, but I had a bad start and fell back

to fifth,” Larson said. “I was able to get back to third quickly.”

“Its nice to come back here and be really competitive with Paul

(Silva),” Larson said. “It’s cool to get both of our first wins here

at Williams Grove. This is one of the most historic race tracks in the

world. To put my name on the winners list is pretty special.”

Lance Dewease started on the pole and led the opening lap with Brent

Marks close behind. A five-car crash exiting turn four stopped the

race. Jeff Halligan, Chase Dietz, Brock Zearfoss, Matt Campbell and

Mike Wagner were involved. A few of the cars flipped. No injuries were

reported.

A complete restart ensued with Dewease once again leading and Marks

right behind. Marks didn’t let Dewease get away and a third turn pass

got him the lead with three laps completed.

Marks pulled away to a comfortable lead over Dewease with Larson

charging from third. Brian Montieth passed TJ Stutts for fourth.

Marks began lapping slower traffic on lap 14 and this allowed both

Dewease and Larson to close dramatically. Montieth was not far back

either.

Marks stayed up around a fast cushion as Dewease tried to make the low

and middle groove work. Larson passed Dewease off turn two with 12

laps to go and began tracking down Marks.

“He was searching for the middle and I was able to slide him,” Larson

said. “The top in one and two started to go away and I could see their

noses inside of me, so I moved down.”

As Marks worked the top, Larson tried a bit lower line and finally got

another shot.

Larson tried the bottom in turn three to take the lead, but couldn’t

make the pass. Larson tried the bottom again and got a better run this

time and was inside of Marks down the frontstretch. He squeezed under

him entering turn one making slight contact as the took the lead with

six to go.

“I wasn’t expecting him to go to the bottom,” Larson said. “He’d been

running the top. I got a good run off four and I had enough of a gap

in front of me, I was committed to slide him and he shut it down. I

thought we were going to crash. I hate that I got into him. You’re

trying to judge things so quickly here. You’ve got to make all your

passes in the corners. You’ve got to be really aggressive.”

Marks tried to take the lead back, but Larson got by slower traffic

better. Marks was held up and Dewease got back by for second. Rico

Abreu and Freddie Rahmer completed the top five. Danny Dietrich, who

started 18th, Ryan Smith, TJ Stutts, Chad Trout and Lucas Wolfe

rounded out the top 10.

Dewease set quick time over the 38-car field with a lap of 17.330 and

he also won the opening eight-lap heat race. Brian Montieth won the

second heat. Three laps were completed in the third heat race when a

rain shower hit the track. It created about a 75-minute delay. When

racing resumed, Marks held off Larson to win the third heat. TJ

Stutts won the final heat. Matt Campbell won the B-main.

Macri Sweeps the Night in Both 410 and 360 Competition as he Runs Winning Streak to Five at Port Royal Speedway

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Penn- (June 1, 2020)- Located just outside the entrance to the front stretch grandstands, there are several reserved parking spots for the Port Royal Speedway. Whether they be for sponsors or fans, they are the best spots in the facility.

Though, for the past four weekends Anthony Macri has found his own reserved parking spot- victory lane- and he is getting paid quite nicely to park there.

Macri found himself sitting in the newly constructed victory lane for 2020 as a winner for the fourth consecutive race, besting Lance Dewease and Aaron Reutzel for the Round 6 of Pennsylvania Speedweek presented by Red Robin Gourmet Burgers triumph. The win was the first Speedweek triumph of Macri’s career and was worth $7000.

He followed that up later in the night, in only his second career 360 Sprint Car start and first for former sprint car driver Sean Michael, by besting the United Racing Club 360 Sprint Car field for his fifth straight victory at the Juniata County oval. This one was worth $2000.

“I’m sure this isn’t going to sink in until tomorrow morning and I really don’t know what to say,” said Macri. “I got to thank my crew and they do one heck of a job. We haven’t had the best Speedweek up to this point, so this one is pretty special.”

The feature started off chaotic as before the green flag ever flew, NASCAR star and scheduled pole sitter Christopher Bell, pulled off the track with motor issues and ended his night early.

Brock Zearfoss inherited the pole position as a result and after the green flag it was a three-way battle for the lead between himself, track point leader Logan Wagner and Lance Dewease heading out of turn two. However, seventh-place starter Cory Eliason spun out between turns 1 and 2 and collected Robbie Kendall to bring the field to a halt. Neither driver rejoined the field.

On the restart, Wagner got the jump on the field and set sail on the outside of the Speedway to a nearly 2.0 second advantage. With Zeaross settled in second, fifth-place starter Macri was swapping positions with Dewease for third.

On lap seven Dewease got by Zearfoss to move into the runner-up spot and two laps later he was on the tail of Wagner as the leader entered lap traffic.

One lap later Macri began his march forward as he passed Zearfoss to move to third at the start/finish line and three laps later he used the high side of the track in turn’s one and two to gain momentum and cruised by Dewease on the backstretch for second.

One lap later, Tyler Bear came to a slow on the front stretch to bring out the caution and wiped out a 1.491 second advantage for Wagner.

On the restart, Macri dove to the bottom of Wagner on entry in turn one and slid in front for the lead, but Wagner crossed back under down the backstretch to regain the lead with 16 to go. The two swapped the lead again the next circuit before Macri used momentum coming to the line to pull under Wagner to lead his first lap of the night on lap 16. Meanwhile, All Star Circuit of Champions points leader and Speedweek invader Reutzel, had moved into third and he got by Wagner for second on the bottom of the track on lap 18.

Dewease followed suit two laps later to move into third and both he and Reutzel set their sights on Macri. Macri hit lap traffic again on lap 23 and as he struggled to dispatch the lapped cars up high, Reutzel and Dewease were reeling in the Dillsburg, Pa. native on the bottom of the track.

With three laps to go, Reutzel and Dewease were both within two car lengths of Macri and Reutzel poked his nose inside of Macri at both ends of the speedway heading to the white flag. With the lap car of AJ Flick on the bottom of the Speedway in turn 1, Reutzel attempted to drive through the middle of the turn and allowed Dewease to pull ahead for second.

Macri was able to then clear Flick heading into turn three to thwart Dewease’s last ditch effort and he crossed under the checkered flag by a .861 margin of victory over Dewease and Reutzel. Kyle Larson and Wagner rounded out the top five while Danny Dietrich, Ryan Smith, Brent Marks, Freddie Rahmer and Zearfoss filled out the top ten.

“I was playing it cool the first half saving my tires and I just tried to pounce in lap traffic when I could,” said Macri. “With two laps to go I was struggling a bit with the lappers and I saw somebody poke their nose down there and I just kind of pushed the gas a little harder and here we are.”

Dewease was happy with the finish and felt like Macri had the better car.

“Anthony has been really good here and he’s learned how to run the bottom when he needs to and we just need to get better,” he said. “We were pretty good on the bottom, but Anthony has a good line to run the top along with the bottom and we were probably a second-place car tonight.”

Alan Krimes advanced from the 21st starting position to finish 14th and as a result he earned the $200 hard charger bonus courtesy of Valley Supply Inc. Kyle Larson was the night’s fast timer and he received a $200 bonus courtesy of Packers Concessions.

URC 360 Sprint Cars

For the sixth consecutive time dating back to 2017, a 410 Sprint Car driver pulling double duty picked up the URC 360 Sprint Car victory at Port Royal Speedway as Anthony Macri continued his winning ways at the Juniata County oval.

Macri passed Dallas Schott with five laps to go to claim the $2000 prize by an advantage of 3.780 seconds. The win was Macri’s first career triumph in 360 Sprint Car action anywhere and completed the clean sweep for the night after claiming the 410 Sprint Car feature earlier in the night.

“This whole night just isn’t really registering right now, and I don’t really know what to say,” said Macri, who was making his first-ever start for former driver Sean Micheal. “I wasn’t really sure I even wanted to do this tonight to not mess up our 410 program and it being Speedweek, but I’m glad we decided to go for it.”

Jonathon Preston and Chad Layton led the field to the green flag, and it was Preston jumping out to the early lead over fourth-place starter Schott. The field would slow though one lap later as Mike Thomas slowed on the track.

Using double file restarts, Schott challenged Preston for the lead entering turn one, but Preston was able to pull away on the outside to lead lap three. The field once again came to a slow when Tyler Templin got turned around in turn 1 the following lap.

This time on the restart, Schott was able to make the pass and he led lap five. For the next two laps Preston stayed glued to the bumper of Schott, but the caution once again flew on lap seven.

Preston got the jump on the restart and it appeared he would lead lap eight, however the caution came out again for a slowing car, negating the pass.

Now using single file restarts, Schott got the advantage on the restart. Three laps later, Macri began to make his move. Running in fourth, Macri slid under Derek Locke for third in turns one and two and the top three cars were all nose to tail on lap 18 when the final caution of the night fell for a spinning Ryan Stillwagon.

As a result of the multiple cautions, teams were granted a red flag fuel stop, setting up an eight-lap dash for the win.

Schott jumped out to the lead again after a return to green flag action and Macri was able to slide under Preston entering turn three to move into the runner up spot. Macri set his sights on the leader and two laps later he pulled ahead of Schott exiting turn for to take the lead for good.

He went unchallenged the final five laps and took the checkered flag over Schott, Preston, Locke and URC point leader Josh Weller. Steve Buckwalter, Ryan Kissinger, Adam Carberry, Layton and Tyler Ross rounded out the top ten.

“There for a while I didn’t think we were going to get that one, but as the race went on those guys were blowing through their tires and I was kind of saving mine,” said Macri. “We were kind of just playing the waiting game there but with the yellows I knew I had to get going or someone was going to get us on a restart. This is a night to remember for sure.”

For Schott, it was only his seventh career start in the division, and he believes he is on his way to success.

“If you don’t know me yet, you’re going to know me soon,” said Schott. “It’s hard to beat a guy who has all those wins already so many laps and I’m just really thrilled to run second.”

THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES

THUNDER ON THE HILL BATTLES MOTHER NATURE AGAIN TUESDAY NIGHT AT GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY. . . . .

KYLE LARSON MAKES THE MOVE ON FREDDIE RAHMER TO WIN THE HODNETT CUP AND POCKET $10,000, RYAN WATT TOPS MODIFIEDS


BECHTELSVILLE, PA (June 30, 2020) – A late race slider led Elks Grove, California’s Kyle Larson to a $10,000 win in the Pennsylvania 410 Sprint Car Speed Week event presented by Red Robin. Ryan Watt of Boyertown, PA picked up the NASCAR 358 Modified victory and $3,000 at Grandview Speedway on Tuesday Night, as part of the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series. With scattered showers over Grandview Speedway from noon to 7 PM the track crew and staff of Thunder on the Hill was determined to get this event in the books, and they did. The win also earned Kyle Larson his place on the Greg Hodnett Cup and perpetual trophy. Hodnett, a six time Thunder Champion and nine time Thunder on the Hill feature winner was remembered Tuesday night after losing his life in a racing accident in 2018.

In the 410 Sprint Cars, Larson overtook Freddie Rahmer to win was his third Grandview win in four years after scoring the 2017 and 2018 editions of the Speed Week event.

“Freddie (Rahmer) set such a good pace on the restarts, I’m surprised I could stay with him,” Larson said while celebrating his big payday. “At times we were good, it’s great to get a win.”

NASCAR Cup Series competitor, Christopher Bell set Fast Time and by the luck of the draw started on the pole of the 35-lap A-Main event. At the drop of the green flag, Bell pulled away to about a straightaway lead over Freddie Rahmer setting the pace for the first five circuits around the the one-third mile, Grandview high banks.

Bell’s night would come to an end quickly, after Kyle Reinhardt slowed collecting the leader, and handing the lead to Freddie Rahmer.

Rahmer hit lapped traffic on the 11th trip around the track, but that didn’t faze him, he switched lanes sliding passed cars, while Larson had his hands full battling Sammy Swindell for second position.

Larson would move into second on the 20th lap, and closed on Rahmer in lapped traffic.

A late race restart opened the door and Larson pulled a slide job on Rahmer, pulling away for the victory and the Greg Hodnett Memorial Cup.

Rahmer finished in second and Sammy Swindell rounded out the podium. Ryan Smith finished in fourth and Danny Dietrich completed the top five finishers.

There was no cruise control on the way to victory for Ryan Watt in the NASCAR 358 Modified feature event. Kevin Hirthler led the field to the green flag running side-by-side with Watt for the first 6 laps before Watt’s No. 14W machine could complete the pass.

The top five ran nose-to-tail with Watt leading the way followed by Hirthler, Craig VonDohren, Jeff Strunk and Brett Kressley. Kressley tangled with a lapped car, bringing out the first yellow flag of the night.

On the restart, the top-5 used every inch of the Grandview Speedway battling it out, with Strunk claiming the second spot.

Watt picked up the $3,000 win, Strunk settled for second, while Craig VonDohren, Kevin Hirthler, and Doug Manmiller rounded out the top five.

The NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series returns on Tuesday, August 4 with the Ken Brenn Midget Masters featuring the USAC National Midget Series and the return of the NASCAR 358 Modifieds.

Abreu scored a win for the invaders leading the 30-lap feature wire-to-wire. Rico earned $7,000 for the second PA Speedweek win of his career.

Rico started on the pole with two-time All Star Champion, Aaron Reutzel to his outside.

The lone Posse driver in the redraw for the feature was Ryan Smith and he lined up third for the main event.

When the green flag dropped Rico drove up the track to take Reutzel’s line away going into turn 1 to hold on to the lead. Behind the top two Bell and Smith drag raced back to the line for third with Bell taking the spot coming out of turn 2.

Larson got by Smith for fourth on lap 2 and went to work on Bell for third. Kyle tried a slide job in turns 1 and 2 on lap 4 but Bell go him back to keep the spot coming out of turn 2.

Rico was riding the wall around the track as he approached the tail end of the field on lap 6. Reutzel got Rico's lead down to under a second as the two worked through lapped traffic.

Robbie Kendall brought out the yellow flag on lap 12 when he fell off the pace on the front stretch.

With a line of hard hitters behind him the single file restart was crucial for Abreu. Rico led Reutzel, Bell, Larson, and Brent Marks to the cone for the restart.

Rico went back to the top going into turn 1 with Reutzel testing the bottom. Abreu created some distance as Reutzel held off Bell and Larson.

Larson got sideways in turn 4 on lap 13 but only lost one spot as Marks got by him to take fourth.

Larson slid Marks on lap 17 in turns 1 and 2 to take the fourth spot back.

While running ninth, Brock Zearfoss brought out the caution on lap 19 as he got turned around on the top side of turn 4.

Once again Abreu needed to restart strong with Reutzel, Bell, Larson and Marks lined up behind him. Freddie Rahmer was up to 10th on the restart from his 21st starting spot.

Marks used the bottom line around the track to get by Larson for fourth. Bell and Reutzel were battling for third when Marks caught the two. Marks went to the high side to get by Bell for third on lap 21 but Bell slid him back in turns 1 and 2 to take the spot back.

Reutzel was starting to close in on Abreu’s lead as the two ran along the wall on the top of the track but there were not enough laps for Reutzel to make a pass.

Abreu beat Reutzel to the checkered flag by 1.995 seconds. Bell finished third and Marks crossed the line fourth. After getting by Larson, Smith finished fifth.

Dietrich Wins Sprint Car Fans Delight In Amazing, Non-Stop Selinsgrove Speedweek Opperman/Bogar Memorial

Nick Sweigart claims 305 sprints

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

6/28/20

Selinsgrove, Pa. – Selinsgrove Speeedway hosted the Jan Opperman/Dick Bogar Memorial for Red Robin Pennsylvania Speedweek 410 sprint cars on Sunday night and Danny Dietrich came out on top in what was a non-stop, dizzying event filled with astonishing exhibitions of high-speed skill at the hands of not only himself but by Rico Abreu, Kyle Larson, Anthony Macri and Brock Zearfoss as well.

All five drivers vied for the prestigious payday, exchanging positions repeatedly in the turns, see-sawing back and forth for the top spots while in clear contention for the victory.

The $5,099 win was the second of Dietrich’s career in the Opperman/Bogar Memorial and his second in the 2020 speedweek series after also scoring on Saturday night at Lincoln Speedway.

The Gettysburg driver took over the speedweek point lead with his run at the famed Snyder County oval.

In the 20 lap 305 sprint main, Nick Sweigart scored the win to record his first ever division win at the track.

The 30—lap Opperman/Bogar Memorial would go non-stop from flag to flag with both Dietrich and Rico Abreu of St. Helena, California, taking their turns at the lead all the while fighting to hold back Elk Grove, California’s Kyle Larson, Dillsburg’s Anthony Macri and Brock Zearfoss of Jonestown.

Dietrich fought off Abreu’s immediate challenge on the start with Zearfoss racing in third.

But by lap six, Abreu had caught back up to Dietrich and was ready to pounce as the leader entered the rear of the field on the eighth tour by which time Macri was up to fourth and Larson was running fifth after starting seventh.

By lap 11, Larson and Macri were exchanging fourth in every corner while Abreu began swapping the top spot with Dietrich.

And all the while, Zearfoss, Macri and Larson were collectively catching the leaders.

Abreu went out front over Dietrich for the first official time at the line on lap 13 but Dietrich would be scored the leader of lap 14.

And in between the official scoring at the stripe, the pair went back an forth for the lead in the turns.

It was Abreu back to the official lead at the halfway point as the exhilarating race and pace of the event made the affair a sprint car fans dream and delight to watch.

Dietrich would again be scored the leader on lap 17 as Macri crept up to third with Larson and Zearfoss in tow.

At that time, Larson begin masterfully slinging his mount through the corners, showing amazing speed onto the chutes, catapulting himself up to third with 11 laps to go while nipping at the outside retaining wall.

For the next five laps, Larson dueled with Abreu for second and at times the pair raced side by side around the big half-mile and this was the key for Dietrich as it allowed him to begin sneaking away from the field.

And by lap 26, the Gettysburg speedster had a firm command of the field as Abreu again secured second.

During the final few laps, Macri came back on Larson for third but Larson would hold onto the spot to the finish.

Dietrich’s margin of victory was 5.115 seconds over Abreu with Larson in third, followed by Macri and Zearfoss.

Sixth through 10th went to Freddie Rahmer, Brent Marks, Ryan Smith, Blane Heimbach and Logan Wagner.

Heats for the sprint cars went to Ryan Smith, Larson, Dietrich and Rahmer with the B Main going to Justin Whittall.

Fast Tees fast time was set by Zearfoss with a lap of 17.179 seconds.

Dietrich took the speedweek point lead with his run in the race by 43 points over Larson, followed by Rahmer, Smith and Zearfoss.

Ron Aurand led the first 12 laps of the 305 sprint main before Nick Sweigart took over for the win.

Kassidy Kreitz ran home second while catching the leader, followed by Ken Duke Jr., Landon Price and Aurand.

Heats went to Derek Hauck, Erin Statler and Duke with Kyle Keen taking the last chance race.

Williams Grove Honors Career, Impact & Legacy Of Mitch Smith Friday

32nd annual running of Mitch Smith Memorial on tap

6/28/20

Mechanicsburg – When Williams Grove Speedway opens its gates this Friday night for racing action, it will do so for the 32nd year in a row in honor of a famed sprint car great, the late Mitch Smith of Linglestown.

The oval will host the H & N Landscaping 32nd annual Mitch Smith Memorial as part of Pennsylvania Speedweek on July 3 at 7:30 pm.

And the spectacle to honor Smith will pay a lucrative $15,000 to win out of the largest total speedweek purse to be posted in all 2020 series events to go along with the largest amount to win.

Richard D. “Mitch” Smith was the original “Mr. Excitement” of Pennsylvania sprint car lore.

At Williams Grove Speedway alone he ended his four-decade long career in 1978 with 27 sprint car wins and nine super modified victories.

But overall on his career, his checkered flags added up to 179.

The name Mitch Smith became cemented nationally when in 1971 the “little guy” from Linglestown trounced the boasting stars of the United States Auto Club, not once, but three times when they towed into the region.

In 1971, USAC was to sprint car racing what the World of Outlaws is today.

USAC competition was the way to Indy. The USAC circuit groomed its drivers to sit on the Indy 500 starting grid.

And start they did.

But on June 19 and September 25 at Williams Grove Speedway in 1971 and again on July 17 at Selinsgrove Speedway, Mitch Smith used a rarely doled out temporary racing permit issued by USAC to just a few local drivers to beat the traveling band – badly.

The USAC stars were furious.

Protests were lodged and tear-downs were performed.

All was legal.

Smith had beaten the unquestionable best in the sprint car business not once, not twice but three times.

The word went out.

“The Linglestown Leadfoot,” Mitch Smith, had trounced USAC in Central Pennsylvania.

Smith retired from the sport in 1978 and in 1988 at the age of 58 was felled by a massive heart attack.

In 1995 Mitch Smith was inducted posthumously into the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame in Knoxville, Iowa.

It is the legacy left behind and the impact that Smith had on the sport in the region and at Williams Grove Speedway that the oval honors again this year with the running of the 32nd annual Mitch Smith Memorial on Friday night.

Danny Dietrich is the defending Smith Memorial winner. His victory in 2019 was the third of his career in the prestigious event.

Lance Dewease is the winningest driver in Smith Memorial history, having 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.

Time trials will set the starting grids for the Friday Smith Memorial with the main event going 30-laps in distance.

The fastest driver in qualifying time trials will earn the $300 Fast Tees Fast Time Award, courtesy of Fast Tees Screenprinting of Thompsontown.

The Smith Memorial will be another race in the 2020 Hoosier Diamond Series at the track.

Fireworks will also be part of the Independence holiday weekend show.

No driver owns more wins in the speedweek event than five-time champion Lance Dewease.

Danny Dietrich is the defending event champion and a three-time Smith Memorial winner in his career.

Larson struggled with lapped cars and Dewease was getting a solid run off of turn 2 but Dietrich was on the move looking for the lead. Dietrich got by Dewease for second on lap 18 and went straight for Larson.

Dietrich slid Larson for the lead in turns 1 and 2 and Larson returned the favor in turns 3 and 4. The two made contact as Larson didn’t clear Dietrich completely. Both cars kept moving with Larson holding on to his lead at the line.

Lap 20 saw the top three, Larson, Dietrich & Dewease, nearly three-wide at the line for the top spot.

Dietrich used the high groove to make a run for the lead as Freddie Rahmer entered the picture running fourth.

~ Selinsgrove Speedway ~ A New Identity In Twenty-Twenty

Mark Smith Wins Fifth URC Kramer Kup At Selinsgrove Saturday

Rine and Jones claim stock cars

6/27/20

Selinsgrove, Pa – Mark Smith stormed to the fifth Kramer Kup win of his career at Selinsgrove Speedway on Saturday night, besting the URC Sprints for laurels in the 8th running of the Kramer Williamson Memorial event, run in honor of the track’s late champion and URC stalwart.

Jeff Rine of Danville won his second super late model main in as many weeks at the track on Saturday to score career win 111 in the division at the oval while Jake Jones scored his second win of the season in roadrunner action.

Dallas Schott of Myerstown started on the pole of the 30-lap Kramer Kup with Derek Locke to his outside.

Schott motored into the lead when action began with third starter Mark Smith of Sunbury blasting up to second on the start.

Smith at first appeared ready to storm by Schott during the first two circuits but after nearly colliding with the leader when he hopped the first turn cushion on the second lap, Smith instead fell back while Schott pulled away.

By lap eight, Schott had a 1.693 second lead over Smith but when the leader entered traffic, Smith made up dramatic ground, allowing him to drive up on the leader’s tail.

It was lap 11 when Smith blasted by for the lead, just seconds before a caution flag bunched the field.

At the halfway point, Smith was in control over Schott, Jason Shultz, Locke and Adam Carberry.

Smith hit traffic with 10 laps to go while Locke and Shultz traded the third spot and Chad Layton challenged Carberry for fifth.

With five laps to go, Smith had a lead of more than seven seconds as Locke got by Schott for the runner up spot.

Schott then faded backward as Smith headed for the checkers worth $3,073 ahead of the field by 6.511 seconds at the finish.

Locke rode home second followed by Jason Shultz, Adam Carberry and Chad Layton.

Sixth through 10th went to Josh Weller, Ryan Kissinger, Schott, Joe Kata III and Davie Franek.

Twin heat races went to Weller and Locke.

Rine pulled a two in the feature redraw to start the 25-lap super late model main and wired the field for the victory.

Andy Haus drove from fourth to second on the start but eventually fell victim to seventh starter Dylan Yoder who was motoring the top groove to the front of the pack.

Yoder bypassed Haus for second on lap 12 but was 5.499 seconds back of leader Rine when he crossed the line.

A yellow flag with three laps to go put Yoder on Rine’s tail for a shot at the lead but Rine jetted to the win by 4.011 seconds.

Yoder was second followed by Bryan Bernheisel, Haus and Jim Yoder.

Sixth through 10th went to Brett Schadel, Coleby Frye, Jim Bernheisel, Hayes Mattern and Dave Brouse Jr.

Heats were taken by Rine and Haus.

Keith Bissinger of Orangeville led the first nine laps of the 12-lap roadrunner main before fourth starter Jake Jones got alongside for the lead.

Jones had pressured Bissinger from the start but was only able to make a pass with two laps to go.

The pair of leaders raced up close to the wall in the first turn on the final lap with Jones getting by for his second speedway win of the season.

Bissinger settled for second followed by Will Brunson, Curtis Lawton and Terry Kramer.

Heats went to Jimmy Kessler and John Schreffler.

Dewease Wins Kickoff Of Speedweek At Williams Grove, Outruns Larson

Kevin Nouse opens 358-sprint season with win

6/26/20

Mechanicsburg – Lance Dewease muscled past Brian Montieth and then outran Kyle Larson to win the opening night of the 30th annual Red Robin Pennsylvania Speedweek Series for sprint cars at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night.

Dewease earned $5,000 for his 99th career victory at the oval aboard the Don Kreitz-owned No. 69K.

In the companion 358 sprint main, Kevin Nouse took over when Zach Newlin dropped out of the lead to win the 20-lap feature event.

Dewease started second in the 25-lap speedweek feature but it was polesitter Montieth who would take the lead when the race began.

Montieth was in control when the red flag appeared on the sixth tour for a two-car tangle in the second turn.

Montieth had Dewease, Danny Dietrich and Larson lining up behind for the restart.

Only two more laps could be completed before the pace was again slowed, this time for a spun Robert Ballou in the second turn.

Racing was back underway for just one more lap when TJ Stutts and Rico Abreu made contact on the backchute, again slowing the action.

Dewease went to work on the ensuing restart, keeping pace with Montieth and the pair crossed the line side by side, split by just .002 seconds with 10 laps completed.

After a turns three and four dive by Dewease coming to the line to get that close, the Fayetteville flyer crossed over entering the first corner to ride momentum around the outside of the track and net the lead with 11 completed.

Two laps later, Larson went low on Dietrich for third in the fourth turn and then held him down entering the first corner to get the position and begin his assault on the leaders.

Larson had run down Montieth for second with eight laps to go when Montieth suddenly dropped off of the pace and withdrew from the race.

That put Larson in clear sight of pacesetter Dewease and with five laps to go, he was clearly gaining on the leader.

Larson got close enough to mount a challenge with two laps to go but then a mistake when he hopped the first turn cushion just after the two to go mark cost him too much ground to make up again during the final one and one-half laps.

Dewease took the win by .931 seconds over Larson with Freddie Rahmer in third followed by Dietrich and Ryan Smith.

Sixth through 10th went to Anthony Macri, Brent Marks, Lucas Wolfe, Jeff Halligan and Brock Zearfoss.

Heats went to Montieth, Larson, TJ Stutts and Dietrich with Matt Campbell taking the last chance race.

Abreu set fast time over the 38-car field with a lap of 16.645 seconds.

Zach Newlin led the first three laps of the 358 sprint main before dropping out of the race while surrendering the lead to Kevin Nouse.

Nouse had started 10th in the field but quickly worked to the front during the early going to be in position to assume the lead.

Derek Locke started 11th in the field and drove into second on lap five.

Locke kept the leader in his sights for the remainder of the race but could not get close enough to make a bid for the win.

The victory was the 23rd of Nouse’s career at Williams Grove Speedway.

Russell Hammaker finished third followed by Kyle Denmyer and Chris Frank.

Heats went to Hammaker, Locke and Scott Fisher with Nat Tuckey scoring the consolation race.

Macri Completes Three-Peat at Port Royal Speedway With First Career All Star Win; Satterlee Wins Again in Late Model Competition

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Penn. (June 24, 2020) As part of the Port Royal Speedway’s offseason renovation plans, victory lane got a fresh look. Mike Wagner may have been the first one to visit it, however track officials may want to re-name it the Anthony Macri landing zone after last night’s race.

For the third consecutive race, Macri visited victory lane as he bested a star-studded field of Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint car drivers and Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions drivers to claim the $6000 prize during a rare Wednesday night showing of the 5th Annual Keith Kauffman Classic.

“I don’t even know what to say,” said Macri. “We through some stuff at it in the dash and we didn’t even know if it was going to work. Clearly for sure it worked in the dash and we dumped some fuel in her and let her eat in the feature.”

The win was the first All Star victory of the Dillsburg, Pa. native’s young career and further proved him as the early favorite heading into the 2020 Pennsylvania Speedway schedule, where a champion will be crowned July 4th in the very victory lane he’s grown so accustomed to visiting recently.

After moving from fifth to first on the opening lap of the Dash, Macri earned the pole position alongside of the night’s fast timer Brock Zearfoss and when the green flag dropped, it was Macri jumping out to the early lead.

As Macri raced around the top of the speedway, Zearfoss stayed glued to the bottom of the track and by lap eight, Macri was already mired in heavy lap traffic. However, showing how dominant he was, Macri was able to slice in and out of traffic with ease.

Meanwhile, Zearfoss had his hands full as defending All Star champion and Tuscarora 50 winner Aaron Reutzel, and Danny Dietrich battled for the third position behind him.

Wiping out a 3 second advantage, the caution flew on lap 10 as Tyler Bear slowed on the backstretch.

On the restart, Macri once again proved to be steady as he blasted out to a large lead again and two laps later, Reutzel got by Zearfoss for the runner-up position and set his sights on Macri. Dietrich followed suit and moved into third six laps later as Macri once again was dicing through lap cars with a nearly 3.5 second advantage on Ruetzel.

Reutzel, who was using the middle of the speedway to make up ground, was slowing reeling in Macri and had cut the distance to under two seconds when the caution flew again on lap 21 for a slowing Zearfoss on the front stretch.

Reutzel tried to slide under Macri on the restart, but he wasn’t able to get nearly close enough to make a pass exiting turn two and Macri instantly put a large distance between him and the field. Over the final nine laps, Kyle Larson tried to make it exciting as he found the top of the Speedway to advance up the second position with five to go.

However, Macri would not be denied as he took the checkered flag with a 3.568 advantage over Larson. Dietrich passed Reutzel at the line for the third position and Brent Marks rounded out the top five.

Mike Wagner, Dylan Cisney, Cory Eliason, TJ Stutts and Freddie Rahmer completed the top ten. Cisney picked up the night’s hard charger and earned an additional $700 for his efforts courtesy of Mike Cleck Towing and Paving and Valley Supply.

“I was trying to push hard in lap traffic, but I was happy to see the yellows just so I could have clean air and drive it as hard as I could,” said Macri. “The month we spent on the road changed me as a driver and I came back here ready to win.”

For Larson, he wished he would’ve gotten another caution to maybe get a shot at Macri but was excited for a solid finish heading into the daunting PA Speedweek schedule.

“I was able to get to the top after that last restart and I was honestly shocked that everybody stopped running the top in one and two,” he said. “The last few laps were a lot of fun and I was hoping for a caution when I got to second. It was a good way to start out the PA swing.”

Super Late Models

Following a trend of drivers going back-to-back at the Speed Palace, Gregg Satterlee held off Ross Robinson to pick up his second consecutive River Valley Builders Super Late Model victory of the season.

The win was worth $3000 courtesy of Lauver’s Concessions and the sixth of his career at the Juniata County oval.

“This is so awesome and it’s such a privilege to race here and I’m glad we live close enough to make the trip here each week,” said Satterlee. “It’s really just good to be able to get out and race as it was slow spring with all the cancellations, so to win really is just a plus.”

Robinson and Jeff Rine led the field to the green flag with Rine getting the early jump on the outside of the speedway. However, Robinson stayed even with him down the backstretch and stayed glued to the bottom of the track to lead lap one by a nose. Rine returned the favor the following circuit to lead lap two by a nose as the two raced side by side again.

The following circuit, Robinson got enough momentum exiting turn 1 and was able to pull ahead to lead lap three.

Satterlee, who started third, made his move to the runner-up position the following lap as he diamonded turn three and four to cross under Rine for the second position heading to the line.

Running the middle of the speedway, Satterlee was able to chop away slowly at Robinson’s lead and by lap nine he was on the bumper of the leader on the backstretch. He stayed hooked to his bumper for another lap and on lap 11 he slid up in front of Robinson exiting turn four to lead the lap.

By then, sixth-place starter Rick Eckert had moved into the third position, but the front two were putting on a battle for the ages. With Satterlee engaged in lap traffic on lap 14, Robinson again pulled even with the leader on the backstretch, but he wasn’t able to complete the pass exiting turn four.

Robinson regrouped and tried again on lap 20, this time on the outside of the speedway. Once again Satterlee pulled away coming to the line and the two switched lines on the track the following lap to the same result.

Robinson would stay within striking distance over the final four circuits, but ultimately it would be Satterlee taking the checkered flag by a 1.010 second advantage to complete the drive for two-in a row.

Eckert, Rine and Colton Flinner rounded out the top five, while Andy Haus, Nick Dickson, Bryan Bernheisel, Gary Stuhler and Jason Covert filled out the top ten.

“We’ve got a pretty good roll going on here and we have a pretty good car so I hope we can keep it going,” said Satterlee. “Ross had a really good car, but I was able to make a couple good laps and get some momentum going to pull away. I changed my line there late a couple times and with a track like this, you can do that and ultimately it paid off.”

For Robinson, it was yet another bridesmaid finish for the second time this season.

“It sucks to run second, but to get beat by him you can’t really complain,” he said. “We’re close and I want to get one of these things really bad. We caught lap traffic a couple times and we caught him, but overall, I can’t complain as he’s just really good.”

Macri makes it two in a row on Valley Supply night at Port Royal Speedway, Sweigart and Hammaker Pick Up Wins as Well

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Penn- (June 20, 2020)- Entering the 2020 race season, Anthony Macri made it clear that he intended to be a regular at Port Royal Speedway. Coming off a breakout season that saw the young Dillsburg, Pa. native pick up his first career victory at 'The Speed Palace' to go along with a podium finish to close out 2019 against the World of Outlaws, Macri indeed looked ready to take the next step.

However after two races, with racing limited in Central Pennsylvania due to the effects of COVID-19, Macri headed out West to compete with the World of Outlaws and at the Knoxville Raceway. As racing started back up last weekend, Macri came in looking refreshed and ready to go as he picked up the win Sunday to close out a weekend doubleheader.

Saturday night he showed he will be a force to reckon with for the rest of the season as Macri outdueled Dylan Cisney on Valley Supply Open Wheel Madness 1 night to pick up his second consecutive Weikert's Livestock Sprint Car win at the Juniata County oval and another $5000 prize.

"I can't thank Jim (Shuttlesworth) enough as he gives me a slot car here and all I have to do is control the throttle and this thing just rolls around here," said Macri, thanking his crew chief. "We're coming back next for three in a row."

Unlike last week where Macri started on the front row and lead every lap, this week he had to work for it. It was a young-gun front row as Justin Whittal and Jeff Miller led the field to the green flag, with Miller getting the early advantage entering turn 1. However, Whittal pulled under last years Speedway Rookie of the Year on the backstretch to take the lead entering turn three and lead lap one at the line.

Meanwhile it was sixth place starter Cisney and seventh place starter Macri who were making early moves. By lap five Cisney was sitting in the 3rd position and tracking down Miller while Macri was in fifth and battling for fourth.

Four laps later, with Whittal holding a 1.4 second advantage, Cisney used a slide job in turn's 1 and 2 to move into the runner up spot and Macri used the bottom of the track to take 4th at the line. The following circuit Macri passed Miller for third.

Whittal was struggling with lap traffic by lap 12 and after trading slide jobs with Cisney in both corners, Cisney overtook him for the lead on lap 12. Macri was lurking just behind both cars in third, trailing by a nose, and he passed Whittal for the second position in turn three and set his sights on Cisney.

Macri was hot on the tail tank of Cisney over the next two laps. Cisney was able to gain some breathing room as he put a lap car between himself and Macri on lap 15, but the race's only caution flew one lap later for a slowing Brent Marks, wiping out the advantage and setting up a nine lap scramble.

On the restart, Cisney got a good jump on Macri and used the middle of the Speedway to pull away. Two laps later though, Macri made his move as he pulled a slide job in turn's one and two to take the lead. Cisney returned the favor in turn's three and four to briefly retake the lead, but Macri was able to cross under him coming to the line to lead lap 19.

"I was pushing hard in the beginning and I knew it was time to go, " said Macri. "It’s always easier running second in traffic than leading and I was just able to make it work there."

Cisney tried to regroup over then final six laps and was within striking distance of Macri as he pounded the cushion of the speedway trying to dispose of lap traffic. Multiple times in turn's three and four over the final two laps Cisney ducked under Maci, but both times Macri was able to pull away.

When the checkered flag flew it was Macri by 1.120 seconds over Cisney, Whittal, TJ Stutts and Logan Wagner. Wagner got upside down in his heat race and transferred for the feature via the B-Main and was awarded the night's $400 hard charger award courtesy of Valley Supply as he passed 15 cars from his 20th starting position.

Last Saturday's winner Mike Wagner, AJ Flick, Robbie Kendall, Tyler Reeser and weekend invader Brock Zearfoss rounded out the top ten.

"I could hear him back there and I knew he was there," said Macri. "I knew if I messed up at all it was going to get interesting there at the end and I'm glad we could hold on and make it two in a row."

For Cisney, he thought he had the car to beat in clean air and was surprised Macri was able to get by him. However, he was really happy for his sponsor (Valley Supply) to have the top two cars on the front stretch that they sponsor.

"I was a bit surprised when he got by us like that on that restart. The car was just about perfect in clean air and I was rolling the middle good," said Cisney. "The car felt so good and I really didn’t think anyone was going to get us. They're just on a roll right now and it’s nice to have two Valley Supply cars sitting one and two. I just wish it was the other way around."

305 Sprint Cars

Following a disappointing wreck last week in the Penns Valley Meat Market PA Sprint Series/IMCA 305 Sprint Car feature event, 'Nitro' Nick Sweigart got some redemption as he led all 20 laps for his third career victory at the Port Royal Speedway.

"We may have started on the pole but it was anything but easy out there," said Sweigart. "We had a bit of a tough start to begin the season last week so this is a nice way to get redemption and get back on track."

Sweigart and Derek Hauck led the field to the green flag with Sweigart quickly jumping to the extreme top of the Speedway to lead lap 1. Third place starter Jake Frye moved into the runner-up position while 10th place starter and last week's winner Garrett Brad was already to fourth.

By lap six Sweigart held a full straightaway lead on the field and the following lap Bard got by Frye for third using the low line of the speedway. Brad passed his way to second on lap 12 and began to set his sights on Sweigart.

By lap 18, Bard had cut the lead in half as Sweigart was deep in heavy lap traffic. However, Sweigart was too good on the top of the Speedway and Bard was never ever to mount a serious challenge for the lead.

Sweigart took the checkered flag by 1.839 seconds over Bard, Dave Grube, Larry McVay and Hauck. Doug Dodson drove his way from 20th to sixth to earn a $100 hard charger bonus via Penns Valley Meat Market while Frye, Christian Rumsey and Erin Statler and Tom Carberry rounded out the top ten.

"It was a tough track to figure out as I almost spun out a couple times trying to get to the top," said Sweigart. "This place is my favorite track to race at, so I'm just thrilled to be in victory lane again."

Bard thought he had the car to beat and was hoping for a late caution to see if he could've got by Sweigart.

" A caution would've been really nice, but it just wasn't in the cards tonight I guess," said Bard. "I was really good on the bottom, but the lap cars were all running down there and I just couldn’t get comfortable anywhere else to really make a move."

358 Sprint Cars'

Doug Hammaker pulled off a last corner pass of Brett Wanner on the outside of the Speedway to claim the 358 Summer Series feature event for the second consecutive year.

The win, worth $1500, tied him with his father Dale Hammaker for sixth on the all-time win list at the Speedway in the division.

"I just put the wing to the trunk and went all the way to the top and tried to see what I could make happen," said Hammaker. "I feel bad for Brett as I pretty much did the same thing to him last year, but winning here is special and it means a lot to me."

Wanner and Eric Parker led the field to the green flag and it was Wanner getting the early advantage. However, before any laps could be completed the red flag came out when Colton Hoover went out over the turn three guardrail. He was ok.

Wanner once again took the lead on the restart as he held off a slide job attempt of Parker. Third-place starter Derek Locke moved into the second position one lap later and started tracking down Wanner for the lead.

With Wanner running the middle of track surface and Locke on the bottom, the front two were nose to tail on lap five when a caution came out for a spinning Tyler Templin

On the restart it was Wanner again out front, while Hammaker, who started eighth, was beginning to make his move as he entered the top five in the first turn.

Hammaker moved into fourth position on lap 14 and used the top of the Speedway the following lap in turn's three and four to pass Kevin Nouse for third.

With the leaders nose to tail, Hammaker capitalized and got by Locke for second on the top of the speedway exiting turn four to move into the runner up spot on lap 17.

Two laps later, the final caution of the race fell when Jay Kraut got turned around, setting up a six lap dash for the checkered flag.

Hammaker tried a slide job after the field returned to green flag action, but couldn't make the move stick.

On the white flag lap, Hammaker pulled alongside of Wanner racing to the flag stand and led by a nose. Wanner slid back under Hammaker entering turn one and pulled ahead down the backstretch into turn three.

However Hammaker had the momentum and got to the outside of Wanner exiting turn four and in a drag race to the flag stand took the checkered flag by a margin of .547 second over Wanner, Locke, Nouse and Cody Fletcher.

"I was kind of setting him up those last five laps and I was just hoping it would pay off," said Hammaker. "I wish every track gave us a surface like this as I could really run well anywhere. I love winning in this division and at this track."

For Wanner, it was another disappointment as he led 23 laps and was really hoping to bring home the win.

"It's heartbreaking as I really want to win at this track so bad, but I guess I'll just have to be second best tonight." said Wanner. "We tore up a car a few weeks back and we haven't been able to practice this one at all. To get a second with really no testing, you can’t be too upset I guess."

~ Selinsgrove Speedway ~ A New Identity In Twenty-Twenty

PA Speedweek Jan Opperman/Dick Bogar Memorial Is Sunday At Selinsgrove!

305 sprints also race in Sunday special

6/21/20

Selinsgrove, Pa – Selinsgrove Speedway will stage the third race of the 30th annual Pennsylvania Speedweek Series coming up Sunday night, June 28 at 7:30 pm when the Modern Heritage 410 sprint cars compete in the 30-lap Jan Opperman/Dick Bogar Memorial, paying $5,099 to win, presented by Middleswarth Potato Chips.

The race is another Slivinski Law Offices Super 7 Series Event at Selinsgrove Speedway.

The only track that Opperman ever won an oval title at will pay homage to the sprint car racing legend, and his No. 99 car owner Luke "Dick" Bogar Jr. when gates open at 5 pm.

In honor of famed No. 99 Opperman car owner Dick Bogar, the Bogar family is paying an extra $99 to win and $90 to the Opperman/Bogar Memorial hard charger.

The Apache Tree Service 305 sprints are also on the racing program that will begin the Independence Day holiday week.

So far this season, Modern Heritage 410 sprint car winners at the track have been Kyle Reinhardt (May 31) and Freddie Rahmer (June 12).

The Jan Opperman Memorial began at the track in 2002 when Middleburg’s Todd Hestor scored the popular win aboard the Middleswarth Potato Chips No. 7M.

And the list of winner’s of the race is a virtual who’s who of area and national sprint car talent.

The late 2014 loss of Opperman’s car owner, Dick Bogar, found his name joining Oppermans on the memorial race beginning in 2015.

Opperman passed away in 1997.

Subsequent memorial winners have been: Greg Hodnett, 2003, 2011; Fred Rahmer, 2004, 2005, 2008; Doug Esh, 2006; Sean Michael, 2007; Chad Kemenah, 2009; Daryn Pittman, 2010; Lance Dewease, 2012; Brent Marks, 2014; Stevie Smith, 2015; Danny Dietrich, 2016; Rico Abreu, 2017; Lucas Wolfe, 2018; Dylan Cisney, 2019.

The race fell victim to rain in 2013 and has been run as a leg of the wildly popular Pennsylvania Speedweek series since 2005.

California hippie Opperman moved East in the early 1970’s and was hired by Selinsgrove businessman Luke “Dick” Bogar Jr. to drive his now famous orange and white No. 99 in the region and across the nation beginning with the 1972 season.

The team piled up wins across the nation during two and a half seasons together including a mind-numbing 44 checkers in 90 races entered in 1972 to go along with 26 more in 1973.

Opperman and Bogar scored the 1973 Selinsgrove Speedway track title as the only title either men ever etched their names on and that only occurred after the pair opted to strictly focus on Selinsgrove part way through the season while they were amazingly leading Saturday night points at both Selinsgrove and Port Royal Speedways, simultaneously.

Bogar’s ties to the track reach back to the 1940s when his fathers lumber company earned the contract to erect the oval’s historic covered grandstand and as such, Bogar Jr. helped supply the lumber still in use today as well as to dig the post holes and pour the cement that is the foundation of the structure.

Adult general admission for the show is $20 with students ages 12 – 17 admitted for $10. Ages 11 and under are always admitted for FREE at Selinsgrove Speedway.

Abbottstown, PA

FREDDIE RAHMER WINS A THRILLER; Sagi Adds Historic Victory to Resume; Will Walls Wins in Photo Finish

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Saturday, June 27, 2020 (7:30PM) Kevin Gobrecht Memorial for 410 Sprints (PA Speedweek) + Central PA Legends

Monday, June 29, 2020 (7:30PM) 410 Sprints (PA Speedweek)

Saturday, July 4, 2020 (7:30PM) 358 Sprints (Summer Series) + 305 Sprints + 600 Xcel Modifieds + Extreme Stocks

Abbottstown, PA (June 20, 2020) – Freddie Rahmer drove from his 13th starting spot to edge out the race’s hard charger, Brian Montieth, for his second win in as many weeks.

Two young guns shared the front row for the start of the 30-lap feature. Brent Shearer was on the pole with Aaron Bollinger to his outside.

Shearer was out to the lead when the green flag dropped with Bradley Howard battling Bollinger for second. Howard took the spot from Bollinger on the first lap.

Kyle Moody drove to fourth on the first lap from his seventh starting spot while Cale Thomas and Brett Michalski battled for fifth.

With drivers jostling for position behind him, Howard focused on reeling in Shearer for the lead.

The front of the field started to bunch up as they approached lapped traffic which led to some exciting racing.

Bollinger was able to track down Howard to challenge him for second but Howard still had his sight set on the lead. Howard tried a slide job on lap 12 for the top spot but Shearer took it back.

As Howard was fighting Shearer to take the lead from Shearer, Moody was driving door to door with Bollinger on lap 14 for third. Bollinger held the spot.

Howard’s hard work paid off and he drove to the lead on lap 15 with a slide job.

While Howard was reeling in Shearer, Freddie Rahmer was making his way through the field. Rahmer had driven to fifth on lap 16.

The yellow flag flew on lap 17 for Dylan Norris who stopped on the back stretch. Under the yellow Thomas headed to the pits with a front wing issue.

Shearer, Moody, Bollinger and Rahmer lined up behind Howard for the single file restart. Montieth lined up ninth for the restart after starting 23rd.

Shearer drove to the bottom of turn 1 to try and take the lead back from Howard, but Howard wasn’t giving it up.

Rahmer drove to third on the restart while Danny Dietrich was up to fifth from his 17th starting spot.

Dietrich was working the high line as he battled with Moody and Shearer for fourth.

Rahmer pulled a slide job on Howard on lap 22 in turns 1 and 2 for the lead.

Moody followed on next lap and tried sliding Howard for second but couldn’t make it stick.

Rahmer was working his way through lapped traffic while a three car battle for second ensued behind him. Montieth took the spot with a slider on lap 26 in turns 1 and 2.

Montieth caught Rahmer at the flag stand with one lap to go but the move ended up costing him as Rahmer was able to create some distance.

Rahmer beat Montieth to the checkered flag by .334 seconds for his second win in a row. Montieth’s impressive drive from 23rd to second earned him the hard charger honors for the race. Dietrich finished third. Howard held on to finish fourth and Moody crossed the line fifth.

Heat winners were Brent Shearer, Bradley Howard and Brett Michalski.

Sagi Adds Historic Victory to Resume

With his win on Saturday night Alan Sagi has now won in five different decades.

Sagi lined up third for the 20-lap feature behind Doug Weisser and Chad Earnst.

Earnst drove to the lead when the green flag waved. Weisser got to the inside of Earnst in turn 4 to challenge him for the lead but Chad held the position.

The first caution of the race came on lap 1 for Kyle Moser.

Earnst held onto the lead on the restart ahead of Weisser, Sagi, Kurt Zimmerman and DJ Mease.

Mease got under Zimmerman to try and take the fourth spot, but Kurt held the position.

The yellow flag flew again on lap 5. Jed Latshaw was off the pace and tried to exit the track in turn 2 but did not have enough momentum to make it to the pits.

After the caution came out Weisser, who was running second, spun out resulting in a restart from the rear of the field.

Earnst led Sagi, Zimmerman, Mease and Tommy Slanker to the cone for the single file restart.

A battle for the race lead between Earnst and Sagi was just getting underway when the caution came out on lap 8.

Travis Mease, who started 20th, was up to seventh for the restart. Sagi, Zimmerman, Slanker and Craig Wagaman lined up behind Earnst for the second restart of the race.

Slanker was working on the inside of Zimmerman for third and took the spot on lap 11. After making the pass Slanker slid up the track into the wall in turn 1 to bring out the caution.

Travis Mease was running the outside and got by Wagaman to get in to the top five.

Sagi drove under Earnst for the lead coming out of turn 4 but the caution came out before they crossed the start-finish line. The yellow came out on lap 12 for Daniel Garrett who slowed in turn 2.

Travis Mease was driving alongside his brother DJ for the fourth spot. DJ held him off but Wagaman joined the battle and got to the inside of Travis to take fifth.

Sagi got the lead on lap 14 and started to pull away from Earnst.

Wagaman reeled in Earnst and was all over him for second but was not able to make the pass allowing Earnst to pull away.

Sagi crossed the line 2.259 seconds ahead of Earnst for the win. Wagaman finished third. Zimmerman was fourth and DJ Mease held on to finish fifth.

Heat winners for the Limited Late Models were Craig Wagaman and CJ Mease.

Will Walls Wins in Photo Finish

After plenty of side by side racing throughout the 20-lap feature it was only fitting that two drivers were neck and neck at the finish.

Pole-sitter, Eric Tripp took the lead at the start with Ryan Smith getting under Bud Witmer for second. Brian Walls got upside on the back stretch bringing out the red flag before a lap could be completed. Chris Heller was also involved in the incident and was able to rejoin the field.

Tripp raced to the lead on the complete restart with Smith getting under Witmer for second and Greg Diehl following to take third at the line.

Smith drove to the inside of Tripp for the lead and took it coming out of turn 4 on lap 2. Diehl once again followed and got by Tripp on the inside of turn 3 to take second on lap 3.

The caution came out on lap 3 for Dan Hoffman who got turned around in turn 2.

Smith led Diehl, Jasen Geesaman, Tripp and Will Walls to the cone for the single file restart.

Smith led on the restart with Diehl on his bumper. Diehl got to the outside of Smith in turns 1 and 2 but Smith held the position. Smith and Diehl were driving door to door down the back stretch for the lead with Smith beating Diehl back to the line to maintain the lead.

The yellow flag flew again on lap 6 for Zach Myers who got into the inside wall coming out of turn 4.

Once again the leaders were racing side by side with Smith having the advantage over Diehl at the line every time they completed a circuit.

Right behind the leaders there was another side by side race for third between Geesaman and Walls.

With two side by side battles in the top four you could throw a blanket over them as they battled for position.

Smith was holding onto the race lead by inches when Walls got by Geesaman for third lap 13.

After the pass for third Smith got a slight advantage over Diehl and was able to pull away.

Walls looked to the inside of Diehl for second on lap 15 before the caution came out for Dan Hoffman who gets out of sorts in turns 3 and 4.

Smith led Diehl, Walls, Geesaman and Tripp on the restart.

Diehl drove to the top again trying to get the lead leaving the bottom open for Walls to make a move on the inside. Diehl held on to second by inches over Walls at the line on lap 16.

Diehl got high in turns 3 and 4 on lap 17 giving Walls the opening he needed to move into the second spot.

Walls looked to the inside of Smith on the last lap and the two raced side by side to the checkered flag. In the photo finish, Walls beat Smith to the line by mere inches. Diehl crossed the line third. Geesaman finished fourth and Michelle Walls completed the top five.

Next Saturday, June 27, Lincoln Speedway is back in action with Night #2 of Pennsylvania Sprint Speedweek presented by Red Robin. The 410 Sprints will compete in the $9,200 to win Kevin Gobrecht Memorial. The Central PA Legends will also be in action.

At the recommendation of the PA Dept. of Health, Speedway officials were advised that they did not need to shut down and that proper protocol was taken in every way. The track was informed that no changes would need made and that the best way to further combat the spread of COVID-19 and possible infection was to continue the practicing of Social Distancing Guidelines recommended by the CDC.
Track officials were further instructed that concession stands did not need to be shut down and that all track operations could continue as normal. However, to further do our part and ensure we are treating this with the utmost respect and responsibility, we have made the decision to close the track food stands for the foreseeable future.

Macri’s Long Haul Pays Off With Win on Back-End of Port Royal Doubleheader; Bard Continues Torrid Start in 305 Competition

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Penn. (June 14, 2020) How much is an overnight 927-mile drive from Knoxville, Iowa to the Port Royal Speedway worth in dollars? For Anthony Macri, it is $5000.

Macri made the 14-hour trip worth every penny Sunday night as he picked up his second career Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Car victory over a hard charging Logan Wagner and Brent Marks on the second night of a weekend doubleheader that represented a return to racing for the Juniata County oval post COVID-19.

“On the road you learn to drive hard because those guys take advantage of every inch you give them,” said Macri, who has been racing out west with local racing shut down. “Coming back to Pennsylvania I knew I couldn’t give anybody and inch and that’s just what we did tonight.”

Macri, who set fast time earlier in the night and received $250 courtesy of Packer’s Concessions LLC, lined up on the outside front row alongside of Apollo, Pa. native AJ Flick and he got the early jump at the green flag, making slight contact with Flick entering turn one.

Defending track champion Logan Wagner and Saturday night winner Mike Wagner followed suit as they overtook Flick at the end of the backstretch to move into the second and third spots to complete lap one.

Meanwhile Lance Dewease, who started fifth, moved into fourth on the lap two and he then overtook the elder Wagner for third on lap three.

By lap five, Macri held a 2.6 second advantage over Wagner and Dewease, who were using every inch of the track trying to track him down. Two laps later they cut the distance in half as Macri battled lap traffic.

By lap 12, Wagner was within striking distance of Macri on the high side of the speedway and Dewease was lurking on the bottom. With Macri heavy into lap traffic, it looked like it would be a three-wide battle for the lead entering turn one, but the caution flew for a slowing Tyler Walton, giving Macri some much needed breathing room and clean air.

“It was kind of a struggle for me as I was dealing with tire spin and lap traffic wasn’t playing nice,” said Macri. “I was thrilled to see that caution because I could hear them back there and I knew what I’d have to do on the restart to get it done.”

When green flag action resumed, Logan Wagner made his move as he went to the bottom of the speedway in turn one and he pulled alongside of Macri exiting turn two, only for Macri to again pull away. Two laps later Wagner tried again and this time he was able to complete the pass exiting turn two.

However, Macri would not be denied as he went to the bottom in turn three and excited turn four with the lead again. Wagner made another slide job attempt on lap 19 entering turn one, but he would not complete the pass.

Brent Marks, who also made the overnight trip from Knoxville to Port Royal, found speed on the extreme high side of the Speedway and he moved past Dewease into the third spot the same lap. Two laps later Macri once again found himself in lap traffic, providing Wagner one last shot to pounce.

Wagner built up momentum the last handful of laps and was within striking distance after taking the white flag, but he climbed the fence exiting turn two with his right rear tire, allowing Macri plenty of distance to cruise home to take the checkered flag by a margin of 3.340 seconds.

Wagner, Marks, Dewease and Mike Wagner rounded out the top five with Ryan Smith, Flick, Freddie Rahmer, TJ Stutts and Dylan Cisney completing the top ten. Cisney picked up a $200 hard charger bonus courtesy of Valley Supply for passing the most cars- nine.

“I knew when Logan showed his nose down there in three and four that was probably the place to be,” said Macri. “This track really clicks to my driving style and everything just worked for us tonight.”

For Wagner, who was running second on Saturday before blowing a right rear tire, it was another consistent effort for his team that will pay dividends as he chases a third straight track championship at ‘The Speed Palace’.

“I just got in the wall and used my stuff up,” said Wagner. “I thought when I got by him the clean air would help me, but he got back to the bottom and that the way racing goes. I am just glad for consistent finishes. That’s what wins points championships.”

PASS/IMCA Sprint Cars

Continuing to build experience behind the wheel of a 305 Sprint Car, Garrett Bard kicked off his sophomore season by picking up the Penns Valley Meat Market PASS/IMCA 305 Sprint Car feature victory in the series first visit to Port Royal Speedway in 2020.

Bard claimed two victories last season at the speedway and after coming from the fourth starting spot to best Dylan Proctor and Doug Dodson by 2.270 seconds Sunday night, he’s looking to best that number this season.

“I really like this place and it’s fun to get up top and run the fence,” said Bard. “I got into the wall a couple times, which happens when you get up there, but it was just a fun race and a great start to the season at Port Royal.”

Proctor and Eric Statler lead the field to the green flag with Proctor getting the early advantage entering turn one. However, Bard was already hot in pursuit as he went from fourth to second in the first turn’s and pulled alongside Proctor on the outside of turn three and lead lap narrowly at the line.

The caution came out before he could pull away though as Devin Adams had mechanical issues on the following circuit. On the restart, Bard took off, but the caution would fall again two laps later as Nick Sweigart got into the turn two fence.

The lap four restart would be Proctor’s best opportunity and he attempted to slide under Bard entering turn 1, but he could not make the move stick and Bard powered away.

On lap 12 Bard hit lap traffic, but with nearly a 2 second advantage over Proctor at his expense, he was able to navigate the slower traffic with ease.

Dodson, who started ninth had moved into a podium spot and was now challenging Proctor for the runner up position. At the completion of the 20-lap event Bard took the checkered flag, his third of the season in the PASS division, over Proctor, Dodson, Christian Rumsey and Jared Zionkowski.

Roger Irvin, Ken Duke. Jr., Landon Price, Eric Statler and Derek Hauck completed the top-10. Hauck passed 11 cars to claim the $100 hard charger award courtesy of Penns Valley Meat Market.

“I was just hoping for things to stay green and if so, I didn’t think anyone had anything for us,” said Bard. “I was just going to keep running the top, keep gaining momentum up there and I knew we’d be ok.”

FREDDIE RAHMER SCORES FIRST WIN OF THE SEASON; Fisher Holds Off Hammaker for 358 Victory

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Saturday, June 27, 2020 (7:30PM) Kevin Gobrecht Memorial for 410 Sprints (PA Speedweek) + Central PA Legends

Monday, June 29, 2020 (7:30PM) 410 Sprints (PA Speedweek)

Abbottstown, PA (June 13, 2020) – Freddie Rahmer led the 33-lap feature wire to wire for his first win of the season at Lincoln Speedway. The $5,000 victory came on the 9th Annual Fallen Firefighters Night in Memory of Brandon Little.

Qualifying for the feature event on Saturday night consisted of two sets of heat races for the 410 sprints. The initial heat line up was determined by pill draw with the second heat lining up as an invert of the initial start. Passing points were awarded for each heat with the top six drivers in the point standings redrawing for their feature starting spot. Drivers earned points for passing and lost points for falling back through the field.

The 24-car field saluted the fans by going four-wide before the start of the 33-lap feature.

Rahmer drew the pole in the redraw and had Tim Wagaman lined up to his outside and Chase Dietz and Brian Montieth behind him.

Freddie shot out to the lead with Wagaman holding on to second while Dietz and Montieth battled for third behind him.

While running second Wagaman fell off the pace on lap 6. Tim came to a stop on the front stretch bringing out the first caution of the race. Wagaman utilized the two minute work period and attempted to rejoin the field, but he pulled back into the pits before the restart.

Rahmer was getting ready to enter lapped traffic when the caution came out. Freddie led Montieth, Dietz, Trey Hivner and Tim Glatfelter for the single file restart.

The top line around the track was where Rahmer and Montieth were finding their speed at the front of the field. Dietz, running third, gave the bottom of the track a try but joined the leaders on the top after not making any headway.

Rahmer caught the tail end of the field on lap 12 with Montieth closing in.

Freddie created some distance between Montieth as he maneuvered through lapped traffic. As the leaders worked their way through the field Dietz remained within striking distance of the top two. Dietz was reeling in Montieth when on lap 16 Dietz did a 360 spin in turn 4. Chase maintained his third place spot, but lost ground on Montieth.

Rahmer’s lead was over 4 seconds with 10 laps to go.

After his mishap Dietz was able to hunt down Montieth again to challenge him for the second spot.

The red flag came out on lap 28 for Billy Dietrich who broke an axle and took a tumble in turn 3. Bradley Howard & Tony Fiore went to the pits ending their nights while the red flag was out.

Troy Wagaman Jr. had a left front tire going flat when the red flag came out. Wagaman’s team changed the tire in the pits and he was able to rejoin the field. Wagaman had been running 10th and restarted 11th.

The red flag erased Rahmer's 5.243 second lead over Montieth. Montieth, Dietz, Glatfelter and Ryan Smith lined up behind Rahmer for the restart.

Both Rahmer and Monteith went to the top with Dietz trying out the bottom again. Dietz got a good run off of turn 2 but it still wasn’t enough to take second from Montieth.

Smith continued his charge through the field and took fourth from Glatfelter on lap 29.

Krimes was right there to challenge Glatfelter for fifth and took the spot at the line with two laps to go.

Rahmer took the checkered flag 1.599 seconds ahead of Montieth. Dietz held onto third. Smith, the hard charger, finished fourth from his fifteenth starting spot and Krimes crossed the line fifth.

The first set of heat winners for the 410 sprints Chase Dietz, Glenndon Forsythe and Tim Wagaman. After the line ups were inverted the second set of heat were won by Chad Trout, Freddie Rahmer and Brian Montieth.

Fisher Holds Off Hammaker for 358 Victory

Scott Fisher pulled double duty on Saturday night running in both the 410 and 358 sprint divisions. With the double heat format and running both the B-main and feature in his 410, Fisher had already driven 72 laps before hitting the track for the 358 20-lap feature (Fisher finished the 410 feature one lap down).

Fisher lined up on the outside of pole-sitter, Brett Strickler. Todd Rittenhouse Jr. who won the first two features of the season lined up sixth.

The 358 drivers saluted the fans and honored the memory of Brandon Little by going four-wide before the feature.

Strickler took the lead when the green flag dropped but the yellow came out before a lap was in the books. Jacob Balliet came to a stop in turn 4 and headed to the pits ending his night.

The field lined up behind Strickler and Fisher for a complete restart.

This time Fisher shot out to the lead with Strickler running second and Rittenhouse in third.

Fisher and Strickler were running the bottom line while Rittenhouse was working the top as he challenged Strickler for second. Rittenhouse took second from Strickler at the line on lap 2. Doug Hammaker followed and took third on lap 3.

The caution flag flew on lap 3 for Steve Owings and Kenny Kuhn who got together in turns 3 and 4. Owings rejoined the field.

Fisher led Rittenhouse, Hammaker, Strickler and Matt Findley to the cone for the single file restart.

Fisher drove to the bottom on the restart with Rittenhouse and Hammaker on his tail. Rittenhouse was running the outside while Hammaker ran the bottom as they battled for second.

Hammaker tried a slide job on Rittenhouse in turn 4 and took second on lap 4.

Fisher had a .951 second lead at the half way point as he caught the tail end of the field.

Hammaker closed the gap and caught Fisher as he worked through lapped traffic. Fisher slammed the door in turn 4 as Hammaker tried to make the pass for the lead on the bottom.

The yellow flag flew again on lap 13. This time it was for Billy Heltzel as he stopped on the front stretch with fuel leaking inside the car. Heltzel headed to the pits ending his night.

Hammaker, Rittenhouse, Strickler and Findley lined up behind Fisher for the restart.

Fisher got to the bottom of turn 1 with Hammaker on his outside challenging for the lead. Fisher got a smooth run off of turn 2 allowing him to hold onto the top spot.

Hammaker moved to the bottom and watched Fisher pull away. With four laps to go the field reset after another caution. Jordan Strickler got spun around in turns 3 and 4.

Once again Fisher followed the bottom line through turns 1 and 2 with Hammaker looking to the outside. Fisher held on to the lead and beat Hammaker to the checkered flag by .977 seconds. Rittenhouse crossed the line third. Brett Strickler finished fourth and Cody Fletcher completed the top five.

Mike Wagner Turns Back The Clock to Get First Win Since 2014; Satterlee and Yoder Pick Up Late Model Wins in First Port Royal Races Since COVID-19 Shutdown

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway - PORT ROYAL, Penn (June 14, 2020) -Mike Wagner capped off a return to racing for the Port Royal Speedway by picking up his first Weikert's Livestock 410 Sprint Car win at the Speedway since 2014, leading all 25 laps enroot to a $5000 payday courtesy of Packer Concessions LLC.

While the race fans have waited 91 days as a result of COVID-19 for racecars to grace 'The Speed Palace' clay, Wagner had been waiting nearly six years to find his way back to victory lane in what the Harrisonville, Pa driver described as one of the longest droughts of his career.

"Man we needed that. This is probably the longest I've went without winning in quite a while," said Wagner in front of friends, family and crew. "I got a new sponsor this year in Mc Mcgee and he believes in me and put money into the car. I needed to win for him and all of these guys who work on the car and this is just really cool."

Wagner drew the pole for the feature and got the early jump at the green flag, pulling away from New York native Paulie Colagiovanni and Speedway regular TJ Stutts.

As he set the early pace on the outside of the track, his son and defending Speedway track champion Logan Wagner, was making it known that he'd be a contender as he pulled a slide job entering turn three to move from sixth to fourth on lap two.

With Wagner holding a nearly two second lead by lap six, all eyes were on the next three cars as they battled under a blanket for the runner up position. Logan seized his opportunity on lap nine as he slid both Colagiovanni and Stutts entering turn three to take second.

However, the father and son podium hopes would be dashed as Logan Wagner blew a right rear tire in turn 1 two circuits later, sending him to the pits and bunching up the cars again. He would rejoin the field after replacing the tire under caution.

On the restart, Stutts showed his muscle as he slid under Colagiovanni entering turn 1 and pulled alongside of Wagner for the lead, only for Wagner to pull back ahead down the backstretch. Stutts tried the move again in turns three and four two laps later, but Wagner once again showed he wasn't going to be denied as he pulled away to lead.

Fifth-place starter Jeff Halligan, a rookie in the Sprint Car division this season, had moved into third on lap 11 and he passed Stutts coming to the white flag to take the runner up spot. However it was too late as Wagner crossed the finish line with a 2.060 second advantage for his 12th career victory at the Speedway.

Halligan picked up the runner up spot over Stutts, Lance Dewease (started 16th) and Colagiovanni rounded out the top five. Robbie Kendall, Ryan Taylor, Jared Esh, Dylan Cisney and Logan Wagner rounded out the top 10.

"It sure feels good. I’d just like to do it for these guys," said Wagner, in what was a popular win for fans. "Starting up front, we were just going stay there until we had to move and hopefully we can do it more this year."

For Halligan, it was a career best finish at the Speedway for the young gun who in recent seasons made his name in the 358 Sprint Car division. He believed he had a car capable of winning, but knew that track position was going to be important.

"I really felt like if we would've had a better start or even five more laps we might have had something for them," said Halligan. "This means a lot to us and we're getting around here pretty good so hopefully next time we can be sitting on that stage one spot better."

Super Late Models

Gregg Satterlee picked up his fifth career River Valley Builders Super Late Model victory at the Port Royal Speedway, leading 24 laps to claim the $2500 winner's prize over a charging Rick Eckert and Trevor Feathers.

"I honestly couldn’t tell you the last time we won here, but it feels like it's been a while," said Satterlee. "You have got to be good here to win, so it says we are doing something right and I'm pretty proud of this one."

Scott Flickinger and Marvin Winters led the field to green with Flickinger jumping out to early lead. Satterlee, who started fourth, had moved into second by the completion of lap one and he slid under Flickinger entering turn 1 and exited turn 2 with the lead before the caution flew for a slowing Kyle Lee, negating the pass.

On the restart though, Satterlee would not be denied as he pulled under Flickinger exiting turn 2 and powered down the backstretch to lead lap two. Feathers, who started fifth moved into the third position on lap three and seventh starting Eckert followed to fourth.

One lap later Eckert slid under Feathers to take third and by lap five he slid into the runner up position, bringing Feathers along for the ride.

Meanwhile, Satterlee was out to a half straightaway lead. He approached lapped traffic on lap 13 and was having issues getting by the lap cars, allowing Eckert and Feathers to close the gap in half.

Knowing he couldn’t afford to be patient much longer, Satterlee got creative in passing the lap cars, moving all over the track in search of room. With five laps to go he held a 1.697 second lead over Eckert and it would never get closer.

He took the checkered flag by 2.857 seconds over Eckert, Feathers, Jason Covert (11th place starter) and Marvin Winters. Michael Norris, Flickinger, Colton Flinner, Bryan Bernheisel and Mike Lupfer rounded out the top 10.

"We haven't gotten to race much here lately, so I feel like we haven't been all that good really," said Satterlee. "I was kind of just riding behind those lap cars and I knew Rick was coming and I needed to start moving. If I was going to lose, it wasn't going to be sitting behind lap cars waiting for sure."

For Eckert, he knew track position would be key and that with limited cautions he'd need some help to get the win.

"We were really good all night but the re-draw just didn’t work out for us in terms of starting spot." said Eckert. "I think Gregg was just as good as us and maybe even better, so I can’t really complain. We'll take a podium finish and move onto the next one."

Limited Late Models

Andrew Yoder picked right off where he left off 2019 as he picked up the win in Selinsgrove Ford Limited Late Model action in commanding fashion over Dillan Stake and Ryan Zook.

The win was his eighth career in the division and continues a dominance of the division that saw him pick up the track championship last season.

"I just love this place so much and I can’t really explain things other than we have a really great set-up and car," said Yoder. "Sometimes it’s almost unbelievable how great this car is and I'm excited to keep going this year."

Devin Frey and Shawn Shoemaker led the 21-car field to the green flag with Frey taking the early lead over third place starter Stake. Meanwhile Yoder, who started sixth moved into third at the completion of lap one.

Still using the high side, Yoder next overtook Stake and then Frey to take the lead exiting turn four to lead lap two. By lap four, Stake was back into the second spot and Zook had advanced from his ninth starting spot to take third.

Stake tried to pull a slide job on Yoder on lap three, however he couldn't make it stick and settled back into second. The first of two cautions came out on lap four as Chase Bowsman got turned around in turn three.

On the restart Yoder once again powered off into the lead and by lap 12 when he reached lap traffic, he held a nearly full straightaway lead on Stake. The final caution came out one lap later as Brad McGinnis came to a stop on the front stretch.

On what would be the final restart of the night, Yoder once again took off and Stake and Zook would be left to battle it out for second. Yoder took the checkered flag by 3.996 second over Stake, Zook, Devin Hart and Todd Snook.

Derick Garman, Craig Wagaman, Drew Weisser, Frey and Matt Parks rounded out the top ten.

"We could run all over the track which is great after two features already ran and speaks loudly of the surface here," said Yoder. "Whether it was on the top or the bottom, there wasn’t anywhere where I felt like I couldn’t go."

For Stake, he thought his best shot was the slide job early in the race and felt once Yoder found the bottom of the track he was racing for runner up.

"I had one shot at him with the slider attempt and I just couldn't stick it and he was gone after that," said Stake. "He kind of snookered us all going to the top on te intial start and I thought we might be able tyo get back by him on the bottom, but he moved won on us on that restart and it was over. He's the reason we're trying to get better and I guess we're not there yet."

Limited Late Model Results- 1. Andrew Yoder ($1000), 2. Dillan Stake 3. Ryan Zook 4. Devin Hart 5.Todd Snook 6. Derick Garman 7.Craig Wagaman 8.

~ Selinsgrove Speedway ~ A New Identity In Twenty-Twenty

Freddie Rahmer Gets First Of Selinsgrove Career In 410 Sprints Friday, Andrew Yoder Wins Limited Late Models

 6/12/20

Selinsgrove, Pa. – Freddie Rahmer of Salfordville wired the field for the 25-lap Modern Heritage 410 sprint car win at Selinsgrove Speedway on Friday night, taking home $4,000 for his first victory of the season anywhere and the first of his career at the Snyder County oval.

In the 20-lap limited late model main, Andrew Yoder of Selinsgrove took the win, worth $1,200.

The initial start of the 410 sprint car main was red-flagged when Steve Buckwalter turned over at the exit of turn two.

But before that happened, polesitter Rahmer drove low through the turns and watched as Kyle Reinhardt whipped to his outside through the turns, threatening to surge ahead and into control.

So when Rahmer got a second chance at the start after the red, he stayed higher around the oval in the first and second turns, thwarting Reinhardt’s advances in order to hold control.

Rahmer began lapping cars with six away, allowing Reinhardt to close down some of his advantage over the field but a caution with 10 laps completed for a stopped Mike Walter II. cleared the track for Rahmer on the restart.

Walter had been running a strong fourth before his misfortune.

Rahmer was able to get away when action resumed while Brian Montieth and 11th starter Blane Heimbach battled for fourth with Heimbach taking the spot on lap 11.

The pair battled for the spot for the remainder of the race before Montieth finally returned the favor with just one lap to go.

The leader meanwhile had entered traffic again with six laps to go but this time Reinhardt wasn’t able to run him down, instead settling for second, 1.691 seconds behind at the finish while flirting with the outside rail in the third turn.

Rahmer became the 195th different super sprint car winner in the history of the track.

Jeff Halligan of Ephrata drove a steady race the entire distance to hold third place to the finish.

Heimbach settled for fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Justin Barger, Lucas Wolfe, Cale Thomas, Chase Dietz and Ryan Smith.

Twin heats went to Rahmer and Reinhardt.

Shawn Miller led the first two laps of the limited late model main before a caution flag bunched the field with Andrew Yoder restarting second.

Yoder blasted under Miller when action resumed in the first turn and drove up across the track to take Miller’s line away in the second turn.

After that, Yoder withstood several restarts with Miller giving chase however Miller failed to challenge for the win.

The race was stopped twice, once for a five-car crash in the third turn on lap 13 and again on a restart when a piece of debris struck the assistant flagman.

Yoder took the win by 1.883 seconds over Miller, Kevin Probst, Jared Fulkroad and Devin Hart.

Sixth through 10th went to Tommy Slanker, Craig Wagaman, Doug Ishler, Matt Murphy and John Schoch.

Brad Mitch was credited with 13th although he originally crossed the line in fifth before coming up light in post race inspection.

Heats went to Ryan Zook, Miller and Todd Snook.

Port Royal Speedway to Host Both Juniata and East Juniata High School Graduation Ceremonies

By- Justin Snyder/ Port Royal Speedway

PORT ROYAL, Penn- On behalf of the Juniata County Agricultural Society and the Port Royal Speedway Promotional Team, we are proud to host the 2020 commencement ceremonies for both the Juniata and East Juniata High School’s on Tuesday June 16th.

In the case of inclement weather, there is a rain date scheduled for June 17th. Ceremonies for the East Juniata High School class of 2020 will begin at 5:30pm EST and the Juniata High School Class of 2020 will follow at 7:30pm EST.

The front stretch grandstands will be open for ticket holding family members and friends to watch as the Class of 2020 receive their diplomas and walk across the stage. We encourage everyone to continue to practice proper social distancing guidelines as well for the duration of the event.

In early April, as it became apparent that graduation ceremonies would be impacted because of COVID-19, we offered up the Speedway grounds to both schools as a safe and logical solution to the problem. In a resounding decision, students voted yes to the proposal and the stage was set to host the event.

“The people of Juniata County support the Port Royal Speedway in such a large turnout each year and we fully recognize the sacrifice this community has made during tough times,” said the Port Royal Speedway Promotional Team. “One of the biggest focuses we have as a track is to continue to support the youth and we wanted to do our part to ensure they know how much we value them.”

“Thousands of fans grace our grandstands yearly in anticipation of the waving of the checkered flag at the end of night. While we have some big events and have received national acclaim, this will be by far our biggest honor of our season,” they added. “We are grateful and excited to help wave the checkered flag on the high school careers of the dedicated students of both the Juniata and East Juniata High School’s as they head off into the next chapter of life.”

We ask that all spectators remain on the front stretch grandstand areas and only students will be permitted in the tunnel/infield grounds during the duration of the ceremonies.

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Saturday, June 13, 2020 (7:30 PM) 410 Sprints ($5,000 to win) + 358 Sprints

Saturday, June 20, 2020 (7:30PM) 410 Sprints + Limited Late Models + Street Stocks

Abbottstown, PA (June 6, 2020) – Dylan Cisney led wire-to-wire for his second win of the season and his second career win at Lincoln Speedway. With his win on Saturday night, Cisney was the first driver with a repeat win at the track in 2020.

Cisney started on the pole of the 30-lap feature with Glenndon Forsythe lined up on his outside.

Cisney shot out to the lead while a battle for third ensued between Dalton Dietrich, Kyle Moody and Dylan Norris.

Dietrich emerged victorious and took the third spot with Moody settling into fourth when the red flag came out before the first lap was completed. Chad Trout, last week’s winner, ended up on his side in turn 4. Scott Fisher, Tim Glatfelter, Freddie Rahmer and Brian Montieth were also involved in the incident. Rahmer, Glatfelter & Montieth rejoined the field after a visit to the pit area. Fisher also rejoined the field after pushing off from the accident scene.

Cisney and Forsythe paced the field for the restart. Cisney got out to the lead again and this time the battle was for fourth as Troy Wagaman Jr challenged Moody for the spot.

Moody had his sight set on third despite the charge from Wagaman Jr. Moody and Dietrich raced wheel to wheel at the line on lap 2 with Dietrich holding on to third. Moody wasn’t going away and ran the top around the track to take the third spot on lap 3 from Dietrich.

Tim Wagaman wasn’t far behind and got by Dietrich on the inside of turns 1 and for fourth on lap 4. Wagaman Jr followed moving into the top five on lap 5.

Cisney caught the tail end of the field on lap 8 with a 2.592 second lead over Forsythe. Cisney was able to increase his lead in lapped traffic.

Wagaman reeled in Moody and a battle for third was underway with both drivers running the top line around the 3/8th mile oval.

Forsythe, Moody and Wagaman, running second, third and fourth, were under a blanket mid-way through the 30-lap feature. All three drivers were running the top line around the track.

The caution flag flew on lap 18 for Freddie Rahmer who caught the wall in turn 3 after running three wide down the back stretch with Jim Siegel and Montieth. The three were running for the 17th spot.

Cisney led Forsythe, Moody, Wagaman and Wagaman Jr. to the cone for the single file restart. Cisney drove through the middle of turns 1 and 2 with Forsythe going to the top on the restart. Moody ran the bottom trying to gain on Forsythe with Wagaman on his bumper.

Moody was getting a good run off of turn 2 but Forsythe was the better car coming out of turn 4.

Lap 24 saw another yellow flag when Cale Thomas got turned around in turn 4.

The field lined up for the restart with six laps to go. The top five were Cisney, Forsythe, Moody, Wagaman and Wagaman Jr.

Current point-leader Brandon Rahmer got under Chase Dietz for sixth in turns 1 and 2 on the restart. Cisney maintained the lead and had a 1.103 second advantage over Forsythe with five laps to go.

Cisney raced to the checkered flag 3.034 seconds ahead of Forsythe. Moody crossed the line third. Wagaman finished fourth and Wagaman Jr. rebounded from a mechanical failure the week before for a fifth place finish.

Heat winners for the 410 sprints were Dylan Cisney, Dalton Dietrich, Glenndon Forsythe and Tyler Walton. Jeff Halligan was the hard charger in the main event advancing 11 spots from his 23rd starting spot to finish 12th.

Rittenhouse Makes it Two for Two

Rittenhouse lined up fourth for the 20-lap feature on Saturday night. After starting on the pole last week and leading wire-to-wire, Rittenhouse would have to find a way to the front of the field to land in victory lane.

Tim McClelland lined up on the pole with Dave Brown to his outside. Rittenhouse shared the second row with 358-rookie Zachary Newlin.

McClelland had the lead at the line with Brown close behind. Brown took the lead racing through turns 1 and 2 but the red flag came out before the first lap was in the books. Brett Wanner flipped in turn 1 with Dylan Orwig and Hayden Miller also involved in the incident.

Despite a strong start Dave Brown headed to the pit area during the red. Brown’s loss was Newlin’s gain as he lined up on the outside of row 1 for the complete restart. Brown was able to rejoin the tail end of the field.

McClelland started strong with Newlin following him on the bottom. Alyson Dietz was up to third, but Rittenhouse took the spot at the line and immediately went to work on Newlin for second.

After making two starts in his 410 sprint car, Doug Hammaker was back running his 358 sprint and had made his way up to fourth from his ninth starting spot when the caution came out again on lap 2. Alyson Dietz who was running fifth got spun around in turns 1 and 2.

Once again McClelland took the lead on the restart while a three car battle for third was underway between Newlin Rittenhouse and Hammaker.

Rittenhouse got second from Newlin right before the caution came out again on lap 3. The yellow was for Brett Strickler who spun out in turn 3.

McClelland paced the field and led Rittenhouse, Newlin, Hammaker and Matt Findley to the cone for the single file restart.

Rittenhouse went to the top of the track to challenge for the lead while Newlin held off Hammaker as he challenged for the third spot.

Rittenhouse drove to the top again in turns 1 and 2 and took the lead from McClelland coming out of turn 4 on lap 4.

Newlin held onto third running the bottom with Hammaker all over him for the spot. Hammaker got by Newlin for third coming on lap 6 coming out of turn 4.

Hammaker caught McClelland as Rittenhouse entered lapped traffic halfway through the race.

Hammaker was all over McClelland as they both worked on getting by a lapped car. Hammaker got the spot but the caution came out on lap 13 for Hayden Miller who got spun around in turns 3 and 4.

The caution erased Rittenhouse’s three second lead over McClelland.

The top five for the restart were Rittenhouse, McClelland, Hammaker, Newlin and Findley.

Hammaker tried the outside to get by McClelland for second but the bottom kept working for McClelland’s number 6 machine.

Hammaker was riding the edge throwing everything he had at McClelland and lost some of his momentum with four laps to go. Even with limited laps remaining, Hammaker reeled McClelland in once again. On the final lap in the final turns Hammaker made one last ditch effort to get by McClelland but ending up spinning out and was scored 21st.

Heat winners for the 358 sprints were Matt Findley, Tyler Ross, Dave Brown & Doug Hammaker.

Next Saturday, June 13, Lincoln Speedway is back in action with 410 and 358 sprint cars for the Fallen Firefighters Night in Memory of Brandon Little. Racing starts at 7:30PM with pit gates opening at 5:00PM and grandstand gates opening at 5:30PM.

Heimbach Gets Fourth Whitcomb Memorial In Patriot Sprint Selinsgrove Thriller

Garrett Bard wins 305 sprints and Jake Jones claims roadrunners

6/6/20

Selinsgrove, Pa. – A field of 67 total sprint cars filled the Selinsgrove Speedway pits on Saturday night for the running of the 17th annual Joe Whitcomb Memorial for 360 sprint cars, sanctioned by the Patriot Sprint Tour.

Blane Heimbach of Selinsgrove came out on top in a thrilling battle with Mark Smith for Whitcomb laurels, scoring the $3,071 payday in the Patriot Sprint Tour main event.

Garrett Bard scored an equally exciting win in the 20-lap 305 sprint car main, keeping 19th starter Derek Hauck at bay for the checkers.

Jake Jones took the win in the 12-lap roadrunner main to close the night.

Heimbach’s win in the 30-lap Whitcomb Memorial was the fourth of his career in the special event but he had to battle Mark Smith of Sunbury and the outside first turn guardrail to get the victory.

After starting on the pole of the feature alongside Justin Barger, Heimbach took the lead at the start over third starter Smith before entering the rear of the field to begin lapping cars on just the fifth circuit.

And in traffic, Smith was able to close the gap dramatically as the pair blistered around the oval with Smith dogging Heimbach for the lead with seven laps away.

Smith pulled the trigger on Heimbach for the lead deep in the third turn as the pair headed for the completion of lap 13 but Heimbach was never out of the running.

Just after crossing the stripe, Heimbach shot low into the first turn to get control back only to see Smith slingshot around out of the second turn and keep control.

At the end of the backstretch Heimbach again blasted low under Smith and again took the lead back but again watched as Smith reclaimed control off of the fourth corner to keep command.

Seconds later the caution flag unfurled for one car stopped in the second corner, calming the hectic action and taking lapped cars out of the field for the restart.

Ryan Smith, Justin Barger and Joe Kata III lined up behind the leaders for the new green.

Smith kept the pace up when action resumed but Heimbach was never out of sight and when the tables were turned and this time Smith entered traffic with the lead, on lap 17, Heimbach was there to settle the score.

The Selinsgrove driver ducked under Smith for control in the first corner on the 21st lap only to again see Smith jet back out front coming out of the second corner.

Two laps later, Heimbach pulled the move again amid heavy traffic and this time drove up across the track in the middle of the corner to take Smith’s line away in order to preserved command.

Heimbach then began getting away from Smith during the final five laps only to bite the outside first turn fence and nearly end his night with two laps to go.

Luckily, after gliding along the rail for a short distance, Heimbach brought the car down off of the fence, regrouped and took advantage of just enough distance between himself and Smith to get back up to speed and maintain control to the finish.

Heimbach’s 41st overall limited sprint car win at the track came by 11.127 seconds over Ryan Smith after Mark Smith suddenly lost power on the final circuit before limping home sixth.

Paulie Colagiovanni of Marcellus, New York, rode home third followed by Adam Carberry, Bensalem; and Barger or Cornelius, North Carolina.

Mark Smith was sixth followed by Jonathan Preston, Geneva, New York; Ryan Kissinger, Sunbury; Chad Layton, Harrisburg; and Joe Kata III., Goshen, New York.

Heats went to Colagiovanni, Ryan Smith and Dave Axton.

Fast time was set by Carberry with a lap of 17.861 seconds.

Garrett Bard started second in the 305 sprint main and would end up leading flag to flag to get the win in an event filled with drivers advancing from deep in the pack while making three-wide passes for position.

Derek Hauck started 19th in the main and blasted through the field to finish a challenging second.

Nick Sweigart, who started 14th in the field, motored forward to net third at the finish.

Third starter Mike Alleman ran a steady race and at one time challenged Bard for the lead before falling to fourth.

Ken Duke Jr. was as high as third during the mid-stages before riding home fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Doug Dodson, John Walp, John Scarborough, Will Brunson and Jake Frye.

Heats went to Dodson, Brunson, Alleman and Duke. Kassidy Kreitz netted the B Main and Landon Price won the C Main.

Jake Jones led all 12 circuits of the roadrunner feature but Dustin Snook made numerous attempts to get the win.

Snook nosed into the lead on numerous occasions only to see Jones’ outside momentum keep him in command and secure the victory.

Snook settled for second followed by Will Brunson, Curtis Lawton and Scott Dunham Jr.

Twin heats went to Snook and Brunson.

Selinsgrove, Pa – After torrential rains Thursday evening along with lingering showers this morning, another wet forecast indicating 60-70% chances of heavy downpours and thunderstorms for the balance of the day Friday and especially the evening has persuaded Selinsgrove Speedway officials to again postpone its Friday night racing program of Modern Heritage 410 Sprint Cars scheduled for tonight, June 5.

Reinhardt Duels With Rahmer And Wins Thrilling Selinsgrove 410 Sprint Main Sunday

Lawton credited with roadrunner victory

5/31/20

Selinsgrove, Pa – Kyle Reinhardt of Hanover scored a convincing win in the Selinsgrove Speedway season opener for the Modern Heritage 410 sprint cars on Sunday night, taking $4,000 for the win after wrestling the lead away from Freddie Rahmer.

The 25-lap super sprint car main was filled with challenges for position and electrifying passes inside the top six.

Only two laps of the main were recorded before sixth runner TJ Stutts spun but kept going while the field darted toward and around him, bringing out a yellow flag.

Reinhardt challenged for control on the restart but Rahmer kept the led before a second and final caution flag unfurled with five laps away.

Rahmer restarted with the lead followed by Reinhardt, Logan Wagner, Steve Buckwalter, Blane Heimbach, Ryan Smith and Chad Layton.

Reinhardt went to work on Rahmer when action resumed and took the lead going into the first corner only to see Rahmer fly back around him exiting the second turn.

But the long hauler who towed from Missouri on Saturday night to make it to Selinsgrove for Sunday refused to be denied and again took command back from Rahmer to the stripe to lead lap six.

Meanwhile, Wagner and Buckwalter waged war for third, exchanging the spot repeatedly, staging a high-speed game of chess as they darted inside and outside of one another every lap while also traversing the half-mile side by side at times.

Also waging war, exchanging the fifth spot repeatedly was Ryan Smith and Blane Heimbach, who repeatedly traded the spot before Smith finally got it on lap 12, also racing side by side numerous times.

At the halfway point, Reinhardt held a 2.8 second lead over Rahmer but Buckwalter was on the move and took over second with 10 laps to go.

TROUT GOES WIRE TO WIRE FOR $4,000 WIN; Rittenhouse Victorious in 358 Sprint Season Opener

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Saturday, June 6, 2020 (7:30 PM) 410 Sprints + 358 Sprints

Abbottstown, PA (May 30, 2020) – Chad Trout led every lap of the 30-lap feature for his third career 410 sprint car victory at Lincoln Speedway. With 46 410 sprint cars on hand, Trout qualified for the main event through his heat and selected the pole in the redraw. Brandon Rahmer, the current point leader at the track, lined up second for the main event.

Trout drove to the bottom of turns 1 and 2 when the green flag waved with Rahmer in hot pursuit.

Gerard McIntyre, who lined up third for feature, challenged Rahmer for second early in the race. As McIntyre was working on Rahmer, Chase Dietz took the high line through turns 1 and 2 and got by McIntyre for third but the caution came out before the pass was official. The caution was for last week’s winner, Brian Montieth, who came to a stop on the backstretch after spinning coming out of turn 2.

Trout paced the field ahead of Rahmer, McIntyre, Dietz and Tyler Walton for the single file restart.

McIntyre got a nose under Rahmer going into turn 1 but Rahmer held onto the second spot. Dietz was all over McIntyre for third and took the spot on lap 4. McIntyre stayed close and took the third spot back on the next lap.

Freddie Rahmer was trying to join his brother Brandon in the top 5 as he battled with Dietz and Walton. Rahmer was in the top 5 on lap 5 and made it to fourth on lap 6, right before the second caution of the race on lap 7. The yellow flag came out for Justin Whittall who was facing the wrong direction in turns 3 and 4.

While under caution Ryan Smith exited the track and nosed into his pit, ending his night.

The top five for the restart were Trout, Brandon Rahmer, McIntyre, Freddie Rahmer and Dietz.

McIntyre tried the high line going into turns 1 and 2 to get by Brandon for second. Freddie joined making it a three-way battle for the spot and then another caution came out for Justin Whittall who once again was spun around in turns 3 and 4.

McIntyre tried the high side again on the restart, but this time Brandon was able to pull away and create some distance between himself and the battle for third between Gerard and Freddie.

Once McIntyre broke free from Freddie he closed in on Brandon for second. Brandon held off McIntyre’s charge running the bottom with Gerard sticking to the high side of the track.

The yellow flag flew again on lap 14 as Adam Wilt slowed to a stop on the back stretch.

The field lined up nose to tail with Trout, Brandon, McIntyre, Freddie and Tim Wagaman leading the way.

Freddie was trying everything he could to get by McIntyre, but Gerard held onto the third position. Rahmer tried a slide job in turn 4 on lap 19 but it didn’t stick.

The first red flag of the race came on lap 20 as Robbie Kendall and Brian Montieth got together coming out of turn 4 with Montieth landing on his side.

McIntyre and Brandon made contact in turn 2 on the restart with Rahmer flipping and bringing out the red flag yet again. McIntyre headed to the pits after determining the car had too much damage to continue.

Track officials opened the red to allow teams to refuel due to the number of laps run under caution.

For the second week in a row, both the second and third place cars were taken out of the feature at the same time. The new running order for the top 5 was Trout, Freddie Wagaman, Dietz and Tim Glatfelter.

Once the field restarted Lucas Wolfe was one of the few cars running the high line around the track and it was working for him as he passed three cars in three laps to get to seventh from his sixteenth starting spot.

Trout had a lead of 2.109 seconds with 5 laps to go as he approached the tail end of the field.

Trout held onto this lead and beat Freddie to the checkered flag by 1.052 seconds. Wagaman crossed the line third and Dietz held on for a fourth place finish. Glatfelter completed the top 5.

Heat winners for the 410 sprints were Chase Dietz, Gerard McIntyre, Chad Trout and Tim Glatfelter. Tyler Walton set overall quick time with a lap of 15.395 seconds.

Rittenhouse Victorious in 358 Sprint Season Opener

Todd Rittenhouse Jr. started on the pole and shared the front row with Ashley Cappetta for the 20-lap feature. Brett Wanner and Dave Holbrook made up row 2.

Rittenhouse took the lead when the green flag dropped with Wanner getting his nose under Cappetta for second in turn 1 on the start. Wanner took the spot on the next lap sliding by Cappetta as they entered turn 1.

Steve Owings wasn’t far behind and got to the outside of Cappetta on lap 2 going into turn 1 to take third.

The caution flag came out on lap 4 for Jon Stewart who got sideways on the back stretch. Stewart rejoined the field. Mike Bittinger headed to the pits under caution ending his night.

Rittenhouse led Wanner, Owings, Cappetta and Chris Frank to the cone for the single file restart.

Wanner tried the outside of Rittenhouse going into turn 1 but Rittenhouse maintained the lead. Wanner wasn’t going away and passed Rittenhouse for the lead in turn 1 on lap 5, but Todd got Brett back coming out turn 2 to hold onto the top spot.

Rittenhouse started to pull away from the rest of the field as Owings reeled in Wanner for second.

Wanner got out of Owings grip and left Steve to battle Cappetta for third as he hunted down Rittenhouse for the lead.

Wanner chased down Rittenhouse and was on his bumper at the halfway point of the race.

The leaders caught lapped traffic on lap 13. Owings capitalized on lapped traffic and got by Wanner for second going into turn 3 just as the caution came out on lap 14 for Zachary Cool. Cool stopped on the backstretch.

Rittenhouse paced the field ahead of Owings, Wanner, Cappetta and Tyler Ross for the restart.

Owings rolled through the middle of turns 1 and 2 but Rittenhouse maintained the lead.

Another caution came on lap 15 for five cars that got tangled in turns 1 and 2. As the safety crew worked on untangling Jeff Paulson, Zachary Newlin, Kenny Kuhn, Cool and Alyson Dietz officials threw the red flag to allow teams to conserve fuel.

Newlin was the only driver to rejoin the field. Newlin made his 358 debut on Saturday night after making the move up from the 305 sprint division.

Ross got a nose under Cappetta on the restart as he challenger her for fourth. Ross had the advantage in the turns but Cappetta was able to hold him off on as she was stronger on the straightaways.

The yellow flag flew again on lap 17 as Jon Stewart got spun around in turn 4. Stewart headed to the pits along with Newlin, ending the night for both drivers.

Rittenhouse held off Owings on the restart. Owings made one more last ditch effort for the lead on the final lap, but Rittenhouse beat him to the line for his fourth career 358 victory at the track. Wanner crossed the line third. Cappetta finished fourth and Tyler Ross held on for a fifth place finish.

Brett Wanner, Scott Fisher, who was pulling double-duty running both divisions, and Tyler Ross won the 358 sprint heats.

Next Saturday, June 6, Lincoln Speedway is back in action with 410 and 358 sprint cars. Racing starts at 7:30PM with pit gates opening at 5:00PM and grandstand gates opening at 5:30PM.

MONTIETH DOMINATES AS LINCOLN SPEEDWAY RETURNS TO RACING

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Saturday, May 30, 2020 (7:30 PM) 410 Sprints + 358 Sprints

Abbottstown, PA (May 25, 2020) – Brian Montieth led wire to wire to claim the $5,000 prize in the first sprint car race at Lincoln Speedway after a 72 hiatus. Track management announced Lincoln’s return to racing on Friday evening along with new precautions and procedures in place to assist those in attendance with social distancing and staying safe. Fans in the grandstands were seated by security and every other row was taped off. Hand sanitizing stations were placed throughout venue and the infield viewing area was expanded to allow fans to spread out and social distance.

Montieth started on the pole of the 35-lap feature with Ryan Smith lined up on the outside of the front row.

When the green flag dropped Montieth took the lead with Tim Shaffer charging to second from his third place starting spot. Smith settled into third with Steve Buckwalter challenging him for the spot.

Chad Trout was working hard to hold off TJ Stutts as he challenged him for his fifth place position.

Shaffer was not letting Montieth out of his sight and challenged him for the lead in turns 1 and 2 but Montieth would gain back his advantage on the back stretch.

Jim Siegel brought out the first caution of the race on lap 6 as he fell off the pace and came to a stop on the front stretch.

Shaffer was within striking distance of Montieth and had closed his lead to .683 seconds as they were approaching lapped traffic when the yellow came out.

Montieth led Shaffer, Smith, Buckwalter and Trout to the cone for a single file restart.

Montieth got a good jump on the start and drove through the middle of turns 1 and 2 with Shaffer running the bottom as they pulled away from the rest of the field.

The red flag came out on lap 9 when Robbie Kendall spun in turn 2 as he was battling Trout for sixth. Kendall collected AJ Flick with Flick ending up on his side. Kendall was able to rejoin the field after using the 2 minute work period to make repairs.

Montieth set the pace and led Shaffer, Smith, Buckwalter and Stutts on the restart. Montieth pulled away from Shaffer in turns 1 and 2 but Shaffer was able to make up time running the bottom in turns 3 and 4.

As Shaffer was tracking down Montieth, Stutts was all over Buckwalter for the fourth spot.

With Montieth running the top and Shaffer working the bottom the leaders caught lapped traffic on lap 14.

Shaffer was closing in on Montieth as they worked through traffic but a lapped car running the same line as Shaffer gave him trouble allowing Montieth to get his lead over 1 second.

Just as Montieth was pulling away from Shaffer he encountered the lapped car of Kendall who he struggled to get around. Shaffer was able to get Montieth’s lead back under 1 second as he worked on getting by Kendall.

Once Montieth got by Kendall it was Shaffer’s turn again to struggle with lapped traffic and Monteith grew his lead to over 1.5 seconds.

Montieth’s lead was erased when the caution came out again on lap 29. Gerard McIntyre Jr. spun out in turn 2 and in an attempt to keep running ended up doing some 360 spins. During his spinning McIntyre collected both Shaffer and Smith who were running second and third, respectively.

Smith rejoined the field, but Shaffer and McIntyre’s nights were over. Brandon Rahmer also went to the pits ending his night.

With the second and third place cars out of the running the top five on the restart were Montieth, Buckwalter, Lance Dewease Freddie Rahmer and Chase Dietz. Rahmer had made his way to fourth from his 21st starting spot.

Freddie ran the top and got by Dewease for third and quickly went to work on Buckwalter for second. As the two battled for second on lap 32, contact was made coming out of turn 4 and Rahmer ended up with his front end in the front stretch wall, ending his impressive run and bringing out the yellow flag.

With Rahmer out of the mix Montieth led Buckwalter, Dewease, Stutts and Dietz on the final restart of the race. Montieth paced the field and got an excellent jump on the restart. Running the high side is Montieth’s bread and butter and he had a 1.364 lead in just one lap over Buckwalter.

Montieth took the checkered flag 1.789 seconds ahead of Buckwalter. Dewease held on for third, Stutts crossed the line fourth and Anthony Macri finished fifth from his 14th starting spot to earn the hard charger award.

Monday night’s non-points event followed the PA Speedweek format and started off with time trials for the 49 cars in attendance. The field was split into two qualifying groups with Lance Dewease setting overall quick time with a lap of 13.309 seconds.

Heat winners were Tim Shaffer, Brian Montieth, TJ Stutts and Steve Buckwalter.

This Saturday, May 30, Lincoln Speedway is back in action with 410 and 358 sprint cars. Racing starts at 7:30PM with pit gates opening at 5:00PM and grandstand gates opening at 5:30PM.

Williams Grove Looking Toward Resumption Of Racing

5/17/20

Mechanicsburg – Despite the recent announcement by USAC to cancel its swing through the east including the Silver Crown Series program slated for Williams Grove Speedway, the track continues to plan on hosting racing action on June 12 including the 410 sprint cars.

Williams Grove Speedway is looking toward a resumption of racing as soon as state and Cumberland County officials green light racing action.

The speedway is currently evaluating the possibility of rescheduling the May World of Outlaws dates later this season and it has already decided to conduct racing on Friday night, August 14 with divisions to be determined in place of what was originally a dark night on the schedule.

In addition, oval officials are considering adding dates to the schedule that would see racing continue later into the season beyond the National Open.

Wiliams Grove Speedway hopes to see drivers and fans very soon as racing resumes.

Keep up to date on all the latest speedway news and information by visiting the oval’s official website located at www.williamsgrove.com or by following the track on Twitter and Facebook.

State Will Not Work With Selinsgrove Speedway, Refuses To Allow Racing

May 16 Event Cancelled Per Governor’s Office, Oval Planning For Mid-Season Action

5/12/20

Selinsgrove, Pa. – A late morning call Tuesday to State Representative David Rowe from the Pennsylvania Governor’s office has ended any hopes of racing in the near future at Selinsgrove Speedway and therefore the “Posse Unleashed” 410 sprint car, non-spectator, non-social special slated for this Saturday, May 16 has been cancelled.

Despite the best efforts of Representative Rowe and others in the legislature, no reasonable response could be achieved from the governor’s office that would permit racing at the speedway under the already installed state and CDC “aggressive mitigation” guidelines that the oval was fully instituting as a preventative measure against COVID-19.

“We are extremely disappointed at the heavy-handed approach and response by the governor’s office to our good business practices in an effort to race at the track,” says oval co-promoter Mike Heffner.

“Not only did the state lead us on a wild goose chase by approving our plans and then reversing course mid-stream which caused us significant financial loss, but then when faced with a reasonable and flexible request to see the event completed, the governor’s office simply refused to show any interest or workability in remedying the issue.”

“We are very dissatisfied with not only this decision but with how the entire situation was handled. It is a glaring example of failure in leadership by the state during this trying time,” Heffner summarized.

The cancellation of the event means that ALL entry fees previously collected for the event will be fully refunded by the speedway in the coming days.

Questions can be directed to promoter@selinsgrovespeedway.com.

Slated to be live streamed via pay per view on The Cushion, all pre-purchase event view tickets will be refunded by the broadcaster.

“We have no choice but to honor state directives in order to protect not only Selinsgrove Speedway and its future but to also protect DH & L Fire Company, the majority stakeholder in the facility,” says track General Manager Steve Inch.

“Both the speedway and the fire company are reliant in one way or another upon state awarded contracts, licenses and funding in order to keep operating and to lose that support would be devastating to both places in so many ways.”

Selinsgrove Speedway remains optimistic that it can and will see a return to racing action during mid-season and indeed plans are in place to see the historic oval resume action as soon as possible.

The speedway is currently evaluating a plan for hosting conservative practice sessions during the coming weeks and will make announcements about that plan in the near future.

Selinsgrove Speedway Responds To Assertions It Didn’t Have State Approval To Race May 9, Issues Timeline Of Approval Process

5/9/20

Selinsgrove, Pa - As work continues by Selinsgrove Speedway officials and state representatives to clear the way for the oval to host “Posse Unleashed,” a non-social, non-public 410 sprint car event now slated for next Saturday, May 16, the speedway does stand in opposition to a public narrative put forward on May 8 by state officials that denies the fact that the oval ever received approval from the state to originally conduct the exciting event on May 9.

To that end, the speedway is happy to provide the following timeline and a description of the events that yielded approval from the state for the May 9 race during the last 10 days.

Planning for reopening the speedway began on April 24 and an initial inquiry to Penn Township officials was greeted with positive response after which a follow up letter was sent via email.

The speedway next spoke via telephone with personnel at the State Police, Troop F, based in Selinsgrove. Oval plans to reopen were approved by Sate Police, provided permission was granted to the speedway by the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development.

A letter requesting such permission and describing the plan to reopen was next sent via email to the DCED on May 4.

Later that same day, a reply email to the speedway’s letter was received from the DCED, quoted as follows:

“DCED is good with approval from PSP.”

In addition, the speedway received corresponding email from state representatives involved in the effort, quoted as follows:

“Go race! And provide your method to everyone else as best practices!”

On Tuesday, May 5, an email was received by the speedway from the DCED that outlined best practices to be followed at the event, quoted as:

“Please review and practice the guidance provided in attachments. Additional resources can be found on the Department of Health’s Website.”

On Wednesday, May 6 a phone call from the DCED informed the speedway that the event scheduled for Saturday, May 9 at Selinsgrove Speedway could not take place. The reasoning given was that a section in the DCED FAQ section had been changed to include “racetracks”

A follow up email from the DCED provided a link to the FAQ sections cited.

The terms “updated” and “revised” were used within the FAQ section, which was “updated” at 4:45 pm, May 6, 2020.

The aforementioned revisions and updates clearly indicate that a change was dictated to the DCED by another government entity.

It is without question that Selinsgrove Speedway email exchanges between, and conversations with government officials granted the track permission to proceed with the scheduled May 9 event. Of this fact, the track has no doubt nor was there ever any indication that it should have any doubt until the Wednesday afternoon phone call.

And indeed PA State Representative David Rowe supported this assertion during an interview with a local television station on May 8.

It is important to note that Selinsgrove Speedway has no desire or intention to make unwarranted implications against the officials with whom we had discussions concerning the event planned for May 9.

To the contrary the track has the utmost respect and admiration for local officials, law enforcement personnel and the dedicated officials and staff members of the DCED.

As Pennsylvanians we are all indebted to these public servants for their tireless efforts in the quest for a return to normalcy.

We would never consider impugning the integrity of those officials who worked with us in this effort.

“Posse Unleashed” is now slated to take place this week, on May 16 at 7 pm.

The special 410 sprint car program will be carried live, pay per view on thecushion.com for a price of $24.95.

Selinsgrove Speedway is looking forward to the big event.

Governor's Office Kills Selinsgrove Speedway May 9 Racing - DCED Gave Approval Of Event Just Days Earlier

“Posse Unleashed” race postponed until May 16 at 7 pm

5/8/20

Selinsgrove, Pa - After receiving approval from the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development and local officials within the last seven days to stage a non-social, non-spectator sprint car racing event on May 9 at Selinsgrove Speedway, the DCED was ordered by the governor’s office to reverse course late on Wednesday at which time the DCED called the speedway with an order to shut down the event.

State Representative David Rowe, whose district encompasses the speedway, and Representative Barb Gleim worked on behalf of the speedway and their constituents along with track officials throughout Thursday and into Friday to save the event to no avail.

By Noon on Friday, given the governor’s office lack of response to the legislator’s requests on behalf of the oval, the speedway had to postpone the event in an effort to act as responsibly as possible for all teams that were making plans to attend the race and for fans who were making purchases to view via thecushion.com.

Still working in conjunction with state representatives to conduct a limited opening, Selinsgrove Speedway is soldiering on and will present the same program of Modern Heritage 410 sprint cars next Saturday, May 16 at 7 pm, again to be carried live via pay per view on www.thecushion.com.

All drivers and teams who were already entered for the May 9 race are automatically entered for May 16.

The race will carry a raindate of May 17.

In the event any entered teams cannot attend the May 16 race, all monies will be refunded.

Teams that are unable to attend on May 16 are directed to email promoter@selinsgrovespeedway.com with your refund request.

Prior to the late day order on May 6 that revoked approval of the May 9 race per the governor’s office, Selinsgrove Speedway was full speed ahead with plans to conduct “Posse Unleashed,” a non-social, non-spectator 410 sprint car event with all entries registered and ready to go.

The much-heralded effort by the speedway and the race itself was to represent a restart of local dirt track auto racing before being deadened by the governor’s office.

The May 9 event, which followed CDC and state pandemic guidelines, was to be livestreamed via thecushion.com as a Pay Per View Event.

The oval extends its sincerest apologies to all fans and teams who were looking forward to the return of mid-state racing this weekend before this unexpected turnabout by state officials.

Port Royal Speedway To Postpone Racing for the Month of April in Response to COVID-19 Pandemic

By- Justin Snyder/Port Royal Speedway

Port Royal Speedway- PORT ROYAL, Penn. (April 3, 2020)- After discussions with the various touring series that support us and in accordance with Governor Tom Wolf's 30-day mandate extension regarding social distancing and the closing of non-essential businesses due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Port Royal Speedway has made the difficult decision to postpone/cancel the entire month of April's schedule.

Dates affected include April 4th, April 11th's URC 358/360 Sprint Car Challenge with Mid Atlantic Modifieds, the 5th Annual Keith Kauffman Classic sanctioned by the Ollies Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champion 410 Sprint Cars on April 18th, April 19th's "Rumble by the River" for the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series and April 25th's Open Wheel Madness Race to Cure Cancer Night.

Original plans suggested a week to week approach for the Speedway, however once the stay at home order was extended for the month of April, and with the ASCoC and Lucas Oil Late Models following suit, it became clear this was the proper route to take.

The safety of our employees, drivers and fans remain a priority and we will continue to monitor the situation in coordination with federal, state, local and public health officials, along with information based on the recommendations of the CDC to make the best decisions in regards to a return to racing.

We are working hard and in frequent communication with the various touring series in regards to finding suitable dates to reschedule the events affected.

We will continue to provide updates regarding any changes and potential rescheduled dates via our website www.portroyalspeedway.com along with our various social media outlets via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat.

We understand the severity of the situation and will continue to do our part to ensure our fellow Pennsylvania's remain healthy and safe. From the Juniata County Agricultural Society, track officials and promoters and everyone who makes racing possible weekly at the Speedway, we thank you for your patience and understanding and look forward to returning to racing as soon as possible.

Invader Carson Macedo Claims Williams Grove Opening Day Sprints Victory

3/15/20

Mechanicsburg - Driving for Kyle Larson, outlaws invader Carson Macedo of Lemoore, California, powered to the opening day sprint car victory at Williams Grove Speedway on Sunday afternoon, taking home $4,080.

The victory was the first of Macedo’s career at the oval.

“This is without a doubt one of the biggest wins of my career,” Macedo said in victory lane.

“I never thought it would happen.”

Macedo and his team drove from Texas to get to Williams Grove in time for Sunday’s opening day event.

The Californian started third in the 25-lap sprint car feature and watched as polesitter Ryan Smith took the lead at the start.

Macedo briefly fell backward during the early laps but managed to stay in the game as Smith was entering the rear of the field on the eighth circuit.

At first, Smith was able to handle traffic easily, putting three cars between himself and Danny Dietrich by lap 11 but shortly thereafter the front wing on Smith’s No. 72 collapsed and he began struggling to keep pace at the front.

Dietrich was chomping into Smith’s lead on the 16th tour when Macedo blasted to his outside in the first corner to steal second away.

Macedo then quickly ran down Smith’s struggling racer and drove to his inside in the fourth turn to net command with 17 laps away.

The only caution flag of the race then unfurled with six laps to go for Brock Zearfoss who had spun his mount on the frontstretch, finding Danny Dietrich up to second for the new green.

Macedo pulled away from Dietrich on the restart to record the victory going away.

After starting 14th, Lance Dewease motored up to third at the finish followed by 13th starter Brent Marks and
Smith.

Second starter Freddie Rahmer raced in second for the first several circuits before slipping backward to ride home sixth.

Seventh through 10th went to Gerard McIntyre Jr., Brian Montieth, Anthony Macri and Rick Lafferty.

Heats went to Smith, George Hobaugh Jr., Brett Michalski and Cale Thomas with Zearfoss taking the consolation race.

Feature Finish, 3/15/20:

410 sprints, 25 laps: 1. Carson Macedo, 2. Danny Dietrich, 3. Lance Dewease, 4. Brent Marks, 5. Ryan Smith, 6. Freddie Rahmer, 7. Gerard McIntyre Jr., 8. Brian Montieth, 9. Anthony Macri, 10. Rick Lafferty, 11. Jared Esh, 12. TJ Stutts, 13. Chad Trout, 14. George Hobaugh Jr., 15. Chase Dietz, 16. Brock Zearfoss, 17. Robbie Kendall, 18. Brett Michalski, 19. Cale Thomas, 20. Dylan Norris, 21. Kyle Moody, 22. Brandon Matus, 23. Dylan Cisney, 24. Steve Buckwalter

Dewease Picks Up Sprint Car Win No. 113 at Port Royal Speedway, Lingo Jr. Earns First Career Late Model Win
March 15th, 2020

By- Justin Snyder/Port Royal Speedway

[PORT ROYAL, Pa- Last week Lance Dewease was standing on the front stretch during victory lane celebrations collecting a check for being the night’s hard charger. The Fayetteville, Pa. native advanced from 16th to fourth, passing 12 cars for a nice additional $925 pay day.

This week Dewease passed 14 cars in Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Car action….lapped cars that is. Dewease capitalized on a pole position starting spot and lapped all the way up to 10th place in the field to best Logan Wagner for the victory by a whopping 7.584 second margin during 25 laps of caution free action.

And he did it in front a nice crowd of fans who braved the brisk temperatures on a daylight surface despite national concerns over Cornonavirus.

“It’s not necessarily a good thing that’s going on out there but I have to thank all of these fans, track officials and everybody who showed up to watch us race,” said Dewease, who earned $4000 for his efforts. “I think we all showed what heart and determination does in racing. The racing community never ceases to amaze me.”

Dewease lined up alongside of rookie contender Jeff Halligan to take the green flag and he quickly stretched his lead to a full straightaway by lap 5.

Meanwhile there was a heavyweight battle going on for the second position as Brent Marks, Logan Wagner and Danny Dietrich were putting on a show.

Marks, who started fourth after traveling over 24 hours to race at the Speedway following World of Outlaws cancellations in Texas, had his hands full as Wagner and Dietrich swapped lines in attempt to get into the spot.

Over the next five laps, Wagner and Dietrich jockeyed for position multiple times, with the three cars three-wide at one point exiting turn two. Eventually Dietrich got by Wagner for third and was setting up Marks for the pass in turn three. However Wagner slid past both drivers on the bottom of the turn to move into second, with Dietrich in tow and shuffling Marks to fourth.

“We were having a lot of fun back there battling for second and I think we all knew we needed to get in that position if a caution were to come out or something,” said Wagner of the battle. “You’d have thought we were racing for the win as I couldn’t even see Lance with how far he was out there.”

Dewease, who hit lapped traffic on the sixth circuit, was slicing through the cars like a knife in hot butter and by lap 20 had built up and over 8 second advantage on his closest competitor. Wagner, who had put some distance between himself and Dietrich by then, tried his best to close the gap but without a caution over the final laps he had nothing for Dewease.

“We were good, but Lance and his team were just in another league,” said Wagner. “I was hoping for a yellow as once we got in clean air we were really good. Without it I knew we were racing for second best.”

With the race staying under green flag competition for the entire distance, Dewease took the checkered flag for the 113th time of his career at the Juniata County oval and moved into the points lead along the way.

“We’ll likely be back next week but we won’t be here all season,” said Dewease when asked about chasing the points title. “We have a game plan and we strayed from it a bit last season and I think it hurt us late in the year. It’s nice to have early season success and we’ll see if we can’t get a few more of these flags this year.”

Wagner, Dietrich, Lucas Wolfe and Mike Wagner completed the top five. While Brock Zearfoss, Halligan, Marks, Blane Heimbach and Kody Lehman filled out the top ten.

Anthony Macri picked up the $200 Hard Charger award this week courtesy of Valley Supply Inc. as he passed seven cars to advance to 14th from the 21st starting spot.

Heats for the 33 cars in attendance were won by Gerard McIntyre Jr., Marks, Heimbach, Wagner and Dewease. Macri won the B-Main consolation.

Super Late Models

You’d have thought the Port Royal Speedway was in Delaware as Donnie Lingo Jr. and Ross Robinson, both natives of ‘The Diamond State’, battled it out in River Valley Builders Super Late Model competition looking for their first career victories at the Speedway.

Ultimately, Lingo fended off multiple attempts by Robinson and slight contact to pick up his first career victory at the Speedway and the $2500 prize that comes with it.

“I love this track and I wish we could come here all the time,” said Lingo Jr. “We can’t make that drive from Delaware all the time but I think this will be the shortest drive back home we’ve ever made form Port Royal.”

Speedway regular Mike Lupfer and Lingo led the field to the green flag and Lupfer got the early jump. However, Lingo pulled alongside Lupfer down the backstretch on the outside and had enough momentum to pull ahead to lead lap one just before the flagstand.

Meanwhile Robinson, who started sixth, was coming fast as he moved into the third position by lap 2 . Over the next eight laps, Robinson was all over Lupfer and the two cars raced side-by-side with Robinson utilizing the bottom line of the turns.

With the leader struggling in lapped traffic, Robinson finally found enough momentum exiting turn four to pull ahead of Lupfer on lap 13 and set his sights of his fellow Delaware native.

Robinson tracked down Lingo and by lap 17 he was on the bumper of the leader, who was having a hard time getting by the lapped cars in front of him.

“I was good all race, but every time I got up on those lap cars they were giving me all sorts of fits,” said Lingo. “Once I could clear them, the car was great. I was working hard out there to clear them.”

With Lingo tucked on the bottom of the Speedway, Robinson moved up the track slightly in the turn’s and he was setting Lingo up for the pass. Meanwhile, last week’s winner Trevor Feathers had pulled into the third spot using the high side of the Speedway and was ready to pounce should something happen with the leaders.

Robinson made his best effort with three to go as he pulled alongside the leader entering turn three and was nearly even coming out of four. However Lingo pulled ahead coming to the flag stand and the two made contact, nearly spelling disaster.

Lingo recovered and Robinson settled into second. At the white flag Lingo passed a lap car and gave himself the necessary distance to cruise home to the checkered flag where he claimed the victory by a margin of 1.171 seconds over Robinson, Feathers, Lupfer and Tim Smith Jr.

“I didn’t know he was there until he about got by me and we made contact, ” said Lingo Jr. “I knew then I had to move up the track a little. We got by that last lap car and I knew it was ours to lose.”

For Robinson he knew his best chance to win was to be patient and he was happy with a second.

“I was really just setting him up and I knew I had to time my move to where I was alongside him before he could stop me,” said Robinson. “I thought we had him coming off four and we made a little contact, but ultimately he deserved the win.

ALAN KRIMES CHARGES TO VICTORY

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Saturday, March 21, 2020 (6PM) 410 Sprints + 358 Sprints

Saturday, March 28, 2020 (6PM) 410 Sprints + 358 Sprints

Saturday, April 4, 2020 (7PM) 410 Sprints + 358 Sprints

Abbottstown, PA (March 14, 2020) – It seemed that the lead was not a position one wanted to be in as two leaders experienced issues that took them out of the top spot during the first 20 laps of the race. Alan Krimes broke the mold and inherited the lead with five laps remaining and held on to win his first race of the season.

After a rough few weeks to start the season, Indiana native Cale Thomas won his heat race and started on the pole of the 25-lap feature. Scott Fisher shared the front row with Thomas as Dylan Norris and Jim Siegel made up the second row.

Thomas took the lead when the green flag dropped with Fisher settling into second and Norris and Siegel running third and fourth.

Thomas was running the top line around the track as Norris challenged Fisher on the bottom. Norris got by Fisher for second on the bottom of turns of 3 and 4 on lap 1 to take the spot.

Fisher got Norris back using the middle of turns 1 and 2 on the next lap. Siegel got by both Fisher and Norris to charge up to second coming out of turn 4 lap 2.

Ryan Smith was making his way up through the field from his sixth starting spot and was running fourth by lap 3 and made it up to third on lap 4.

Brian Montieth was on the move as well having made his way to the fourth spot on lap 6 from his eighth starting position.

Siegel was reeling Thomas in as they caught the tail end of the field when the red flag flew on lap 8 for Dylan Norris who ended up on his side in turn 3.

The leader Thomas hit the outside wall avoiding the overturned car of Norris damaging his right rear. Thomas headed to the pits and was able to rejoin the field, albeit at the tail end instead of the front.

After inheriting the lead after Thomas’ misfortune, Siegel led Smith, Montieth, Freddie Rahmer and Krimes to the cone for the restart.

Siegel drove to the top of the track and Smith went to the bottom entering turn 1. Siegel stuck to the top line with Smith joining him. Once Smith made the move up the track, Siegel started pulling away.

As Smith worked on reeling in Siegel Freddie Rahmer and Alan Krimes both got by Montieth on lap 10 to take third and fourth sending Montieth back to fifth.

Freddie went to work on Smith for second, but Smith had his sight set on Siegel. Smith got a good run off of turn 2 forcing Siegel to the bottom of the track going into turns 3 and 4 but Siegel was able to hold off Smith’s charge

Krimes got by Freddie Rahmer for third on lap 17 just as the leaders were catching the tailed end of the field.

Siegel and Smith crossed the line wheel to wheel as they both tried to get through lapped traffic. Smith took the lead going down the backstretch lap 19. Krimes followed and took second from Siegel on the following lap.

Smith slid up the track on the backstretch and thought he had cleared the lapped car of Thomas, but he was mistaken. The yellow flag came out with five laps to go as Smith came to a stop ending his afternoon. Thomas had some minor front end damage and was able to stay out on the track.

Krimes inherited the lead with Siegel, Freddie Rahmer, Montieth and Brandon Rahmer lined up behind him for the restart.

On the restart Krimes went to the bottom into 1 with Siegel driving through the middle. Krimes held the lead.

Brandon took fourth from Montieth coming out of turn 2 on lap 21. Freddie challenged Siegel for second with two laps to go but Siegel was able to hold him off.

Krimes crossed the finish line 2.277 seconds ahead of Siegel. Freddie Rahmer finished third and for the second weekend in a row the Rahmer brothers finished back-to-back, as Brandon crossed the line fourth. Montieth completed the top five.

410 Sprint Car heat winners were Brett Michalski, Jim Siegel and Cale Thomas.

Invader Joe Ryan Osborne Wins in First Trip to Lincoln

After a successful 2019 season at the track, Jeremy Ott started on the pole to kick-off the 2020 season. Stephen Wurtzer lined up second with Zachary Settle and Alex Robinson in row two.

Ott got out to the lead at the start with Settle running second and Wurtzer in third. Bill Diehl got by Wurtzer to take the third spot before a lap was completed.

Ott, Diehl and Settle crossed the start finish line three wide for the lead with Settle taking the top spot by a nose. Ott took over the lead coming out of turn 2 with Diehl moving up to second sending Settle to third.

Mooresville, NC native Joe Ryan Osborne moved into the third spot on lap 2.

Diehl drove by Ott for the lead and Travis Perry got by Osborne for third.

The first three laps of the race saw three different leaders. Before the opportunity for four laps and four leaders could occur, the caution came out. Ott and Perry got together in turns 3 and 4 as they ran second and third. Both drivers rejoined the field.

Diehl led Osborne, Settle, Robinson and Wurtzer to the cone for the single file restart.

Osborne was all over Diehl for the lead on the restart as Ott and Perry started to work their way through the field.

The caution flag flew again on lap 4. This time it was for Aaron Updegraff who got spun around in turn 4.

Osborne was all over Diehl again on the restart and got a nose under the leader going into turn 3. Diehl held off Osborne as Robinson moved into the third position.

Brian Racine was on the move making his way up to fourth from his ninth starting spot on lap 6.

Osborne was still working on Diehl for the lead as they broke away from the rest of the field.

Racine had made his way up to third on lap 7 when the caution came out. Chris McKinney and Jorjie Sweger were both backed into the guardrail in turns 3 and 4.

Osborne tried to go low to get by Diehl, but Diehl blocked his line. After falling back to fourth Racine was back up to third.

Osborne got his nose under Diehl at the line as the field hit the halfway point of the race.

Once again Osborne looked to the inside of Diehl and took the lead going into turn 3 on lap 11.

Racine battled Diehl for second and took the spot with five laps to go.

The yellow flag flew on lap 16 for Seth Kearchner as he did a couple of 360 spins and kept moving.

Osborne pulled away from the field on the restart and got the checkered flag 1.275 seconds ahead of Racine. Diehl held on to third and Settle crossed the line fourth. Chris Transeau drove from his twelfth started spot to a fifth place finish.

Osborne has only run his Legend car on dirt four times including Lincoln on Saturday. It was his first trip to the 3/8th mile oval.

Legends heat races were won by Bill Diehl, Jeremy Ott, Brian Racine and Chris Transeau.

Next Saturday, March 21, Lincoln Speedway is back in action with 410 Sprint Cars and 358 Sprint Cars. Racing starts at 6PM with pit gates opening at 3:30PM and grandstand gates opening at 4PM.

Port Royal Speedway Returns to Saturday Racing Following Successful Sunday Opener

By- Justin Snyder/Port Royal Speedway

PORT ROYAL, Pa- Following a rare Sunday opener that saw one of the largest crowds in the history of the track take to the stands, Port Royal Speedway returns Saturday with the reappearance of the Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Cars and the River Valley Builders Super Late Models.

Gates open at 1:00 pm with racing set to begin at 4:00 pm. This earlier start time will be in effect for all Saturday racing in the month of March as we attempt to navigate potential cold weather.

Due to the outpouring of fan support and high car count (46 Sprint Cars and 27 Late Models), the promotion team has decided to up this weekend’s winner’s share to $4000 for the Sprint Cars and $2500 for the Super Late Models.

This will be of no effect on ticket prices as the fans will still be treated to a general admission price of $17 for adults and $10 for students (13-18). As customary children 12 and under will be FREE and pit admission is $30.

California invader Cory Eliason added his name to the record books last weekend by picking up the 78th Annual Opener and the $5000 prize that came with the checkered flag. While he is set to head out west and won’t be able to go back-to-back, several invaders are expected to stick around to compliment the Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Car regulars looking to break into the victory column for the 2020 race season.

Current point standings have Eliason at the point over Brent Marks, Logan Wagner, Lance Dewease and Anthony Macri. Once again, Valley Supply, Inc. will offer a $200 Hard Charger award for the 410 Sprint cars and they will continue to do so throughout the entirety of the 2020 racing season.

In River Valley Super Late model action, it was Winchester, Va. native Trevor Feathers picking up his first career victory at the Juniata County oval. Feathers went wire-to-wire for 25 laps to best Dan Stone, Jason Covert, Andy Haus and Ross Robinson.

A similar car is expected for the Late Models and you can expect the who’s-who of the division to be in attendance to try and collect on the increased winnings.

As of right now, the tunnel and infield are still temporarily closed. However, employees have been vigorously working throughout the week to put the final touches on the offseason improvements with a goal in mind of opening them as soon as possible. Safety and appearance remain a priority for all our fans and drivers.

Similar to last week, we will continue to update the fans on any possible changes via our various social media outlets (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) and website www.portroyalspeedway.com. So, stay on the lookout for potential openings/changes.

After a successful debut that was a big hit with the fans, Hungry Run Wine Cellars will also return to the Speedway this weekend at the log cabin under the front stretch grandstands. They will again be offering wine and wine slushies at an affordable price. Pricing a
