Gene Knaub Dominates Again in 358 Late Model Action
ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 9/13/14 – Frankie Herr continues to rewrite the super sportsman record books. From his fourth starting spot, Herr led 32 laps early, and then led the final 39 to record his seventh win in the prestigious 40th Annual Lawrence Chevrolet Sportsman 100 at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.
Herr chased down outside frontrow starter and race long leader Mike Enders to take his first lead on lap 16 and paced the field through lap 48. Polesitter Gregg Foster had stayed with the leaders, Herr and Enders, through the first half of the 100 lap event and raced by Enders for second on lap 48 and then by Herr for the lead a lap later on lap 49.
Herr and Enders stayed with the race-leading Foster as the top-three raced though lapped traffic just past the halfway point of the 100-lap marathon. Herr got back around Foster for the lead on lap 61 and paced the field to the 70-lap break with Enders and 17th-starting Russ Mitten both keeping pace as the 70th-lap caution, signaled the break in the action.
All teams then headed to the pits for 10 minutes to work on their cars at the 70th lap break in the action’
But nobody had anything for Herr over the final 30-laps as he extended a 3-second lead to 9.53 seconds over the final 10 laps and took the checkered over eighth-starting Chad Criswell and Mitten for his second consecutive Sportsman 100 victory.
Enders, and 20th-starting Carmen Perigo, Jr. completed the top-five.
Rounding out the top10 were Doug Dodson, Bobby Hockenberry, Chad Smith, Paul Miller and Leroy Martin.
Early race contender Scott Geesey was running third when it appeared something broke on his can and turned hard into the third and fourth turn wall on lap 39 and flipped. Geesey was uninjured .
Including lap money, Herr took home $5,138 for his dominating performance which saw him lead 71 of the 100 laps run.
Super Sportsman qualifiers were won by Chad Smith and Tom Wykoff, with Devin Beidel winning the last chance race. Fast time in time trials over the 36-car field was Chad Criswell with a new one-lap track record time of 15.083-seconds (89.209 MPH).
For the second year in-a-row, Dover’s Gene Knaub followed up Frankie Herr’s Sportsman 100 win with his own in the 20-lap 358 Late Model feature.
Knaub, who started fourth, grabbed the lead from outside frontrow starting Kyle Martin on the second lap and never looked back en route to the 2.94-second win over Sam Gallagher, Martin, Ron Kline, and Charlie Schaffer.
Completing the top-10 were Les Hare, Travis Mease, Cam Zeigler, Tyler Horst, and Chaz Walls.
Heats for the “358" Late Models were won by Charlie Schaffer, Cam Zeigler, and Sam Gallagher

LINCOLN LOSES TO RAIN; CHASE DIETZ CLAIMS FIRST TRACK TITLE IN 358 SPRINTS
Night #2 of Trail-Way/Lincoln 358 Sprint Shootout postponed to September 2oth;
PASS Racesaver 305 Sprints added to September 20th show
ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 9/6/2014 – Lincoln Speedway gave it the ole’ college try Saturday, running in the track after a mid-afternoon rainfall and sitting through a lightning delay as the three divisions of race cars were getting ready to come out for warm-ups.
But persistent rainfall coupled with another band of rain off to the west forced promoters to cancel Saturday’s program shortly after 7:00 p.m.
Because Saturday’s event was to be the final points race of the season, Chase Dietz locked up his first-ever 358 sprint car track title over 2013 track champ Niki Young, who finished 95 points behind. Had the race been run, Dietz would have had to finish 18th or better to claim the title. Third through fifth in season points were Chandler Leiby, Matt Campbell, and lady driver Brie Hershey. Another female driver, Ashley Cappetta, finished the season sixth in points.
The second leg of the Trail-Way/Lincoln Shootout was postponed to the next 358 sprint car show on September 20th, and the PA Sprint Series Racesaver 305 sprints will make up their portion of the program on the same date (9/20).
Lincoln swings back in action next Saturday night, September 13th, with the 40TH ANNUAL LAWRENCE CHEVROLET SPORTSMAN 100 for the Super Sportsman, plus 358 Late Models. Gates will open at 5 PM, with super sportsman time trials scheduled to start at 7 PM.
