FREEZING TEMPS FORCE LINCOLN SPEEDWAY CANCELATION

410 Sprints & Open Practice on tap March 11th

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 3/5/2017 – Overnight freezing temperatures led to a frozen racing surface. And with a forecast of freezing temperatures to linger through the morning into the afternoon, Lincoln Speedway promoters regretfully were forced to cancel this weekends’ second racing program of the 2017.

Last weekend Danny Dietrich survived a marathon day to pick-up the 2017 season-opening Ice Breaker 30. It was a day that initially greeted fans with spring-like conditions until violent thunderstorms delayed the program. After several hours and drastically lower temperatures, Fred Putney and his track prep team got the racing surface back to race-ready conditions allowing the hearty fans in attendance to witness the Abbottstown ovals’ 2017 season-opener.

 

This weekend overnight temperatures in the teens froze the 3/8th-mile high-banked ovals’ racing surface. Even after waiting an additional day, it was apparent there would be no above freezing temperatures to thaw the racing surface, forcing the promoters to cancel this weekend’s 2nd racing program of 2017.

 

Next Saturday, March 11th, Lincoln Speedway will try again with another single-division 410 sprint car show. Additionally, there will be an open practice session following the scheduled racing program. Once again, gates open at noon, with qualifying to begin at 2:00 PM.

DANNY DIETRICH WAITS OUT STORM DELAY, NURSES MOTOR TO CLAIM “ICEBREAKER 30” SEASON OPENER

(Click on headline link for full story & results)

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 2/25/2017 – Fans saw it all at Lincoln Speedway Saturday.

 

They were greeted with cloudy skies and temperatures exceeding 70 degrees at the outset, cleared the stands when a tornado warning was issued at 2:20 p.m., waited out a four-hour, forty-minute rain and hail storm delay, returned to the stands to a 20-degree temperature drop, and then withstood heavy winds to see Danny Dietrich score his 32nd career win and claim the $4,000 top prize in Saturday “Icebreaker 30” season opener for 410 sprint cars.

 

A redraw placed Dietrich sixth for the start. A second lap yellow for eighth-starting Bradley Howard, who came to a stop in turn three was the only caution of the event. At the time, Jim Siegel dropped into the pits and did not return.

 

Dietrich was running fifth when polesitter and race-long leader Tim Glatfelter hit lapped traffic on lap six.

 

Five laps later, fifth-starting Brian Montieth took the lead from Glatfelter on the backstretch, only to slow suddenly three laps later with mechanical issues, turning the lead back over to Glatfelter. Dietrich inherited fourth when Montieth dropped from the field, behind Glatfelter, front row starter Campbell, and Kyle Moody.

 

Dietrich caught Moody for third on lap 17 and passed both Campbell for second and Glatfelter on the back stretch of lap 20. From there, he checked out on the field until developing motor problems of his own with just a few laps to go. He was able to nurse it home and cross 297 seconds ahead of runner-up Moody at the finish.

 

I think it was a valve spring that went,” said Dietrich upon exiting the Gary Kauffman-owned Weikert’s Livestock/Sandoe’s Fruit Market #48 in victory lane, “But as Bob Weikert would have said, we have more back in the shop.”

 

“I told these guys all week we were gonna race. I expected to be done by 3:00, but we missed that by about a half-hour, said Dietrich tongue in cheek, “It was just another day.”

 

Crossing third through fifth behind Dietrich and Moody were Cory Haas in new Trone Outdoor Advertising #39 ride, 11th-starting Gerard McIntyre, Jr., and Freddie Rahmer. Sixth through tenth were Campbell, 26th-starting and hard-charger Chase Dietz, Chad Trout, Shane Hoff, and 16th-starting Billy Dietrich.

 

All told, there were four lead changes among three drivers over the 30 laps.

 

Heats for the 27 410 Sprints were won by McIntyre, Moody, and Trout.

 

The temperature dropped from 71 degrees during warm-ups to 46 degrees when the “Icebreaker” ended at 7:48 p.m.

 

Next Saturday, March 4th, Lincoln Speedway returns with another single-division 410 sprint car show. Gates open at noon, with qualifying to begin at 2:00 p.m.
