Wyatt Hinkle claims first career Lincoln win in 358 sprints;
Charles Potts wins first Lincoln feature in 358 late models
ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 6/4/2016 –Brandon Rahmer turned around a tough start to the 2016 season by holding off a stellar field of sprint cars to claim his second career win in the 25-lap 410 sprint car feature at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.
“This year’s kinda been rollin’ off a little tough, but I’ve been drawing bad and haven’t really been racing like myself,” said Rahmer after matching his brother with his first win of the season and becoming the ninth different winner in 11 races in the Pigeon Hills this year, “I was really good in the heat and finally put a whole night together…and I’m glad that I’m finally standing here.”
Handicapping placed Rahmer on the pole for the start, and despite challenges from two top-notch drivers, led every lap. Cory Haas started third and chased Rahmer for the first 16 laps.
“In the beginning there with Cory, I was a little worried because it was really dirty up top. I slid myself going into one because I knew he was going to come up and slide me, said Rahmer, “I can trust him when I’m racing beside him, but he didn’t clear me and I was able wiggle through there. I’m the one standing here. Just the way it happened.”
While Rahmer enjoying a 1.13-second lead, seventh-starting and Lincoln points leader Alan Krimes finally caught Haas for second on lap 17.
Krimes crossed 1.43 seconds behind the winner, with Haas, Brent Marks coming from ninth to finish fourth, and Freddie Rahmer fifth. Sixth through tenth were Danny Dietrich, Robbie Kendall, Austin Hogue, Brian Montieth, and Chase Dietz.
“I tried not to think about the drivers behind me or I’d get myself really worked up,” said Rahmer of Haas and the other big guns running in the top ten, “There’s some really good competition here, and my brother had a good night, too. Sometimes you come here and you run up front, and the next few weeks you might be rolling around the back, but you’re still with good cars. It’s difficult here.”
Heats for the 30 410 sprinters were won by Krimes, Hogue, and Billy Dietrich, who ended up scratching from the feature.
East Berlin’s Wyatt Hinkle claimed his first career Lincoln win in the 20-lap 358 sprint car feature.
Hinkle started on the outside of the front row and won the drag race to turn one over polesitter Jack Eldreth. From there, he led every lap, despite heavy pressure from both Chandler Leiby and Doug Hammaker over the final laps. In fact, the three drivers were nearly three-wide in turns three and four of the final lap when the caution unfurled for Ryan Higgins, who was backwards in turn four.
On the final restart, Hinkle went low to hold off Leiby, allowing Hammaker to drive around the outside to take second place. The three leaders were under a blanket as the crossed under the checkered flag.
Fourth and fifth behind Hinkle, Hammaker, and Leiby were Adrian Shaffer and Eldreth.
Heats for the 27 358 sprinters were won by Troy Wagaman, Jr., Dwight Leppo, and Kyle Denmyer, with Jordon Givler winning the consolation.
Wagaman crashed into the outside wall after contact with Hammaker while running third on turn two of lap 17, and was done for the night.
Charles Potts led every lap from the pole in scoring his first career Lincoln win in the 20-lap 358 Precise Racing Series 358 late model feature.
He crossed 2.36 seconds in front of Jake Jones, with Randy Christine, Jr., Bobby Beard, and Shaun Jones completing the top five.
Heats for the 17 358 Late Models were won by Brad Shank and Sam Gallagher.

MONTIETH COMES FROM 12TH TO WIN THRILLING NON-STOP LINCOLN HILLY RIFE MEMORIAL

C.J. Tracy scores first career win in “358” sprints; Montgomery claims Central PA Legends feature
ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 5/28/2016 – “Hero or zero, Baby!”
So exclaimed Brian Montieth in summarizing his twelfth-to-first run in a thrilling $5,000-to-win Hilly Rife Memorial non-stop 30 lap feature event at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.
It was a run that saw Montieth advance from fifth to first over the final five laps.
He passed both Billy Dietrich and Jim Siegel on lap 27 to move into third, caught Cory Haas for second on lap 29, and drove around Glenndon Forsythe on the final turn to claim his 52nd career Lincoln win.
In the end, the race took just 8 minutes, 18.723 seconds, and the top three crossed the finish line just .777 seconds apart.
“Absolutely not. I had no idea,” reacted Montieth when asked if he knew where he was in the running order over the final laps, “I was trying to look at the board and make sure no one went to the top on me. I thought Glenndon was definitely going to the top on turns one and two of the last lap. I was better than him in one and two, but everyone was just holding their own in three and four.
“It just came alive toward the end,” continued Montieth, “At the beginning of the race, we struggled, and I thought we were just going to run around the rubber. That’s not me. Luckily, the top came in and I finally felt comfortable in the car. Here we stand.”
A disappointed Forsythe, who took the lead from Chad Trout on lap 19, crossed second, with Haas third.
Completing the top five were Billy Dietrich and Siegel. Sixth through tenth were Robbie Kendall, Alan Krimes, polesitter Chad Trout (who grabbed the lead on a second attempt to start the race and led the first 18 laps), Austin Hogue, and front row starter Frankie Herr.
Heats for the 28 410 sprinters were won by Montieth, Herr, and Haas, with Brandon Rahmer winning the consolation.
York’s C.J. Tracy claimed his first career win in the 20-lap 358 sprint car feature. Tracy started on the pole and was the class of the field. A last-lap spin by fifth-place Ryan Higgins set up the final lap restart, but it was to no avail, with Tracy crossing .75 seconds ahead of fellow front-row starter Mike Bittinger.
Chandler Leiby, Jeff Rohrbaugh, and Jeff Halligan completed the top five.
Heats for the 30 358 sprinters were won by Tyler Esh, Halligan, and Matt Campbell, with Chris Frank winning the consolation.
A wild, caution-filled 20-lap Central PA Legends feature saw York’s Lucas Montgomery score his fifth Lincoln career win. Despite several lead changes within laps, there were five official lead changes during the race. Between laps 13 and 16, there was a different leader each lap.
Bill Diehl led the first 12 laps, before things got interesting, with Harlon Leppo leading lap 13, Mason Chaney leading lap 14, Diehl back in front on lap 15, and Montgomery taking the lead for good on lap 16.
Second through fifth were Leppo, Diehl, Travis Perry, and Justice Forbes.
Heats for the 27 Central PA Legends were won by Chaney, Leppo, and Chad Earnst.
