Abbottstown, PA (March 4, 2023) – Freddie Rahmer pulled the Eichelberger #8 into victory lane on Saturday afternoon with a smile on his face. After lining up deep in the field, Rahmer raced his way to the front and after a battle for the lead with Danny Dietrich late in the race, Freddie scored his second victory of the young season, “Good hard racing with Danny there we raced each other really good, that was pretty cool.”

There were three cautions and a red before the halfway point of the 30-lap feature, “There was a lot of yellows there and stuff happened and by lap 13 we were running 7th and I thought we could still run second or third here if we get into lapped cars and the cautions fell right,” Rahmer recalled in victory lane.

Dietrich was pacing the field and Alan Krimes was in second when Rahmer worked his way to third, “We were about even, the three of us there until about 10 or 12 to go and then we got to lapped traffic and Krimes peeled down right at the perfect time.”

Once he got by Krimes, Rahmer reeled in Dietrich as they worked through lapped traffic, “It was hard to get through lapped traffic and it was almost better to be second.”

Rahmer’s win on Saturday was his 26th at the track and paid $5,000 to win.

Alan Krimes and Danny Dietrich made up the front row for the start of Saturday afternoon’s 30-lap feature. Krimes led the field into turn 1 but Danny used the outside to take the lead out of turn 2 with Aaron Bollinger running third.

The first yellow came on lap 4 when Billy Dietrich came to a stop on the front stretch.

Danny, Krimes, Bollinger, Chad Trout and Tim Wagaman made up the top five for the restart. Chris Windom, making his debut in the Heffner Racing #27, was lined up sixth.

Danny had a solid restart and pulled away from Krimes quickly while Windom and Trey Hivner battled for sixth.

Devon Borden flipped in turn 4 bringing out the red flag on lap 6. There was no change to the top five for the restart.

Once again it did not take long for Danny to pull away from Krimes. Bollinger tried to make a move on Krimes for second in turns 1 and 2 but did not make the pass. Wagaman got by Trout for fourth. Macri followed and took fifth from Trout and then made quick work of Wagaman for fourth.

Macri and Bollinger got together in turn 4 as they were battling for third bringing out the caution on lap 11.

Freddie Rahmer went to the outside of brother Brandon to take sixth and then drove by Windom for fifth on the restart.

The final caution of the race came on lap 13 when Cameron Smith spun in turn 4.

Danny led Krimes, Wagaman, Trout and Freddie to the cone for the restart. Rahmer got by Trout and then Wagaman for third on the restart.

Danny found himself in lapped traffic on lap 19. Rahmer was closing in on Krimes and tried a slider in turn 2 as they caught the tail end of the field. Rahmer took second coming out of turn 2 and started to close in on Danny.

Freddie was getting a good run off of turn 2 using the high line as Danny was running the bottom. The two were nearly side by side at the line on lap 26. Freddie slid in front of Danny but Dietrich reclaimed the spot. Rahmer slid him again and took the lead on lap 28. Danny stuck with him and tried a slider to reclaim the lead in turns 3 and 4 with one lap to go.

Rahmer crossed the line just a half second ahead of Dietrich for the win. Krimes was third and Wagaman finished fourth. Trout completed the top five.

 

Duane Howard Triumphant in Modifieds Return to the Pigeon Hills

It had been over 10 years since the modifieds last visited Lincoln Speedway and on Saturday afternoon Duane Howard was triumphant in their return after a hard fought battle.

Mike Gular led the field into turn 1 with Billy Pauch Jr. on the inside and Louden Reimert in third. Pauch got by Reimert for second and a three car battle for third was underway between Reimert, Rick Laubach and Duane Howard.

Gular was pulling away from the field and Pauch was all by himself in second when the yellow came out on lap 8 when Mike Lisowski fell off the pace in turn 4.

Gular and Pauch lined up side by side for the double file restart. Gular, Pauch and Reimert were nearly three wide down the back stretch with Pauch taking the lead on lap 9. Reimert got under Gular for second coming out of turn 2.

Howard passed Gular for third but Gular got him back at the line to hold onto the spot on lap 11.

Gular got by Reimert to take second back on lap 12 using the high line. Gular was running alongside Pauch and took the lead back on lap 14. Howard caught Pauch and took second on lap 16. Howard then went to work reeling in Gular. Howard was all over Gular for the lead and made the pass coming out of turn 4 to take the top spot on lap 21.

Pauch and Reimert battled side by side for fourth with Reimert taking the spot. Howard was pulling away from the field as Laubach was working on Gular for second.

Howard got to the checkered flag 3.384 seconds ahead of Gular. Laubach crossed the line third and Reimert was fourth. Pauch held on to finish fifth.
