ABREU ADDS LINCOLN TO HIS WIN LIST IN USAC/ARDC MIDGETS

Leppo claims Central PA Legends feature; 410 & 358 Sprints return on Saturday

 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 8/19/2015 – For the throngs of race fans who turned out to Lincoln to see 4-foot, 4-inch Rico Abreu Wednesday night, he did not disappoint.

 

“That was pretty damn cool right there!” exclaimed Abreu after claiming his second USAC/ARDC win in as many nights as part of the Honda Midget Series “Eastern Storm” swing, “They packed the track in and that helped out a bunch. That was a pretty cool race to be driving.’

 

For most of the race, it looked like Abreu would have to rally to make the podium, as Jerry Coons, Jr. and Bryan Clauson waged a duel for the lead over the first 28 laps.

 

But the final laps were beyond description, with fifth-starting Abreu assuming third when teammate Christopher Bell spun in turns three and four with five laps to go.

 

On the 26th lap restart, Clauson got past Coons for the lead. A lap later, Coons (who led laps 1-13 and 16-25) began to fade, opening the door for a charging Abreu with four laps to go.

 

Abreu then took to the cushion to pass Clauson for the race lead on lap 29, and hung on for the crowd-pleasing win.

 

“I know it’s tough here leading. I went through the same scenario last night of just not knowing where to go. He got by Jerry and then went low. That left a clean lane up there,” said Abreu of the race-winning pass, “He’s a good enough driver to race me clean, and we get great racing like that. I just dragged raced him down into one. The top kinda got burned in there and I got my momentum going up there. It was exciting!”

 

He picked up $3,500 for the win, with Clauson settling for second, Tracy Hines coming from eighth to finish third, tenth-starting Kevin Thomas, Jr. fourth, and 12th-starting Alex Bright fifth. Sixth through tenth were Coons, Steve Buckwalter, Spencer Bayston, Tyler Thomas, and Brandon Bright.

 

“I’m having a lot of fun here in Pennsylvania,” continued Abreu, “I think it’s great USAC is now coming to Pennsylvania. I know there’s a lot of great race tracks here. It shows tonight with the great racing. I thank the fans for coming out. I know it’s a weekday, but it looks like a great crowd to me.”

 

Heats for the USAC Midgets were won by Steve Buckwalter, Coons, Tyler Thomas, Jr., and Christopher Bell, with Trevor Kobylarz winning the consolation.

 

Clauson set a new track record over the 31-car field in time trials, turning a lap of 15.804 seconds (85.421 miles per hour).

 

Spring Grove’s Harlon Leppo became the fifth leader on lap 18 and went on to win the 20-lap Central PA Legends feature.

 

Leppo started third but watched polesitter Mason Chaney led the first three laps and Travis McClelland lead lap four. He then led the next 11 laps before McClelland slid under Leppo for the lead in turn two of lap 17. One lap later, Leppo made an identical move to re-take the lead, and crossed 1.12 seconds in front of McClelland at the end.

 

Bill Diehl caught Bob Stough at the start-finish line to finish third, with Stough and Chaney completing the top five.

 

Heats for the 27 Central PA Legends on hand were won by Chaney, McClelland, and Leppo, with Rick Hartwig winning the consolation.

DIETZ’S FIRST CAREER 410 SPRINT WIN COMES AT LINCOLN SPEEDWAY
(Click on headline link above for full story & results)

USAC/ARDC Midget show up next on Wednesday night

 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 8/15/2015 – Rookie driver Chase Dietz fulfilled a life-long dream by claiming his first career 410 sprint car feature win during Premier Auto Works/Auto Locator Night at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

 

After normal qualifying and a unique set of two-car match races for the top 12 starters, the 2014 Lincoln “358” champ started fifth in the feature event.

 

Polesitter Jordan Mackison took the lead at the outset from outside front row starter Scott Fisher and led the first ten laps before Dietz nosed in front of him at the start-finish line, just before the lone caution flag of the race came out for a spinning Cory Haas in turn four of lap 11.

 

Because half the field wasn’t by, the lap didn’t count but Dietz’s pass for the lead did.

 

“I was sitting there under the caution and couldn’t believe I was in front,” said a jubilant Dietz after exiting his Scott Gobrecht-owned Bad Boy Buggies/Golf Cart Services/H&H Excavating Services #44 in victory lane, “We kept plugging away and I was kinda hoping we’d hit lapped traffic so that they would block for me a little bit.”

 

“After last night,” continued Dietz, “This race is definitely for Jim Campbell and the whole racing community. It’s tough to see that happen, but we all know what could happen when we strap in these race cars. It’s just a passion of ours. We all send prayers and thoughts out to the whole family. It’s just part of racing, but we just hope we never see it again.”

 

“We were racing with Jordan for the lead and I thought I was going spin out there a couple of times. It wasn’t the best I could have done getting up through. But we only have about 20 races on this thing, and it’s definitely a handful…especially when you’re getting excited going for the lead,” said Dietz, “It doesn’t matter what your in or where you are in any event here…it’s so tough. It’s a great accomplishment to be sitting here where all these legends have been. It’s an amazing feeling.”

 

After the 11th-lap caution, Dietz drove flawlessly through lapped traffic over the final 15 laps, holding off serious challenges by Adam Wilt, Alan Krimes, and Brian Montieth as the leaders raced through lapped traffic over the final ten laps. Montieth caught Krimes for third with three laps to go. Though he tried unsuccessful sliders on two occasions, fourth-starting Wilt was unable to make the pass and crossed 1.44 seconds behind Dietz.

 

“We talked to Scott earlier in the year, and he decided he wanted to put me in the car. I told him I didn’t know why he wanted to put a 17-year-old rookie in the car and spend all that money to give me this dream. I’m so fortunate,” reflected Dietz, “I have so many great people behind me. I can’t thank Scott, his family, and my family enough for giving me this opportunity.”

 

Mackison completed his best-ever Lincoln run in fifth, with Jim Siegel, Tim Glatfelter, Austin Hogue, Tyler Ross, and Billy Dietrich rounding out the top ten.

 

Heats for the 25 410’s on hand were won by Robbie Kendall, Dietz, and Krimes.

 

Lincoln swings back into action with a special mid-week show this Wednesday, August 19th, at 7:30 PM with the USAC Dirt Midgets (co-sanctioned by ARDC) coming to Central Pennsylvania. Central PA Legends will round out the evenings racing program which will see the gates open at 5:30 PM, and time trials getting underway at 7:30 PM.

LEIBY BECOMES 10TH WINNER IN 13 RACES IN LINCOLN ‘358’ SPRINTS
(Click on headline link above for full story & results)

Stough pads points lead with Central PA Legends win; Sixeas best of PA mini-stocks

 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 8/8/2015 –How dominant was Chandler Leiby at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night?

 

So dominant that he gave up a half-lap lead when the final caution flag of the event came out with five laps to go, and so dominant that his margin of victory was 6.82 seconds at the end. And so dominant that only eight cars finished on the lead lap.

 

“It’s all because of these guys right here,” said Leiby in pointing to his crew after scoring his first win of the year and claiming the $2,700 top prize in race 3 of the four-race Nouse Signs & Graphics Summer Series feature event, “This car was fast tonight, and thanks to Fred (Putney) for an awesome track. You could run anywhere here tonight.”

 

Ryan Higgins started on the outside of the front row and led the first two laps before yielding to fourth-starting Leiby on lap three.

 

Leiby covered nearly every square foot of the surface in successfully maneuvering lapped traffic over the middle stages of the race. There were four lapped cars between Leiby and second-place Matt Campbell when a caution came out for a spin by Wyatt Hinkle in turns one and two of lap 20.

 

One lap later, Jeff Halligan blew a motor on the backstretch and dropped oil on the track. Last week’s winner Kody Lehman rolled over Halligan’s left rear and barrel-rolled down the backstretch, collecting Brad McClelland, who rolled into the third turn. None of those driver were injured.

 

While circling to line up for the restart, Campbell had a tire go down and pitted to make the change, handing the runner-up spot to points contender Doug Hammaker.

 

That made difference to Leiby, who still had four lapped cars between his Leiby’s Seal Coating/MATCO Tools #119 and Hammaker. Leiby drove away to his third career Lincoln win, with Hammaker second, series sponsor and hard-charger Kevin Nouse third (after starting 15th), Chris Arnold fourth, and Jeff Rohrbaugh fifth. Campbell came back to finish sixth, with Adrian Shaffer and Ryan Higgins the only other cars on the lead lap.

 

Unofficially, Hammaker’s second-place finish combined with Campbell’s sixth put Hammaker back on top of the season-long points chase by just five points.

Heats for the 33 358’s on hand were won by Rohrbaugh, Higgins, Doug Hammaker, and McClelland, with Brie Hershey winning the consolation.

 

Bob Stough padded his points lead by leading all but one lap in the 15-lap Central PA Legends feature event. Though he was scored the leader on every lap but lap nine (Harlon Leppo), Stough bounced back and forth between first and third in a three-car battle for the lead several times in the middle of several laps.

 

Bill Diehl crossed second, followed by Leppo, Chad Earnst, and Joe Ehrisman.

 

Heats for the 26 Central PA Legends on hand were won by Scott Haudeshell, Travis McClelland, and Justin Mitchell, with Justice Forbes winning the consolation.

 

 

Mercersburg’s Shane Sixeas started third, wrestled the lead away from Jeremy Ott on the fourth lap, and led the rest of the way in the 20-lap main event for PA mini-stocks.

 

Frankie Gordon came through from 11th-starting spot to grab the runner-up spot from Ott late in the race and cross second, with Ott settling for third, 14th-starting LeRoy Long fourth, and 15th-starting Zach Myers fifth.

 

Heats for the 17 PA mini-stocks on hand were won by Ott and Sixeas.

 

Next Saturday night, August 15, 2015 it will be PREMIER AUTO WORKS/AUTO LOCATOR NIGHT for the 410 Sprints, along with an EMMR Exhibition. Gates open at 5:30 PM, with racing action getting underway at 7:30 PM.
