MONTIETH STARTS ON POLE, HOLDS OFF DIETRICH FOR THIRD LINCOLN ALL-STAR WIN
(Click on headline link above for full story & results)

Halligan scores second career win in 358 sprints

 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 6/13/2015 – Different story, same result in Saturday’s 30-lap, $5,000-to-win All Star Circuit of Champions feature event at Lincoln Speedway.

 

Brian Montieth won again, his fifth Lincoln win and eighth overall win of 2015. And although he started on the pole, it was his dash win that may have made the difference.

 

“Obviously, if we would have started in the middle of the field there like Danny (Dietrich) did, we’d have finished there. I wasn’t real happy with this thing,” said Montieth upon exiting his Auto Locator/Premier Auto Works #21 in victory lane, “ We tried a couple of things in the heat race and tried to get a little better there in the dash, and I think we went a little too far for as fast as the track was. We keep plugging away and if wasn’t for the yellows, I wouldn’t be standing here.”

 

Montieth started on the pole and led every lap, twice having two-second leads wiped out by caution flags. In the meantime, two-time 2015 Lincoln winner Danny Dietrich was charging through the field from 12th starting spot, and drove under Cory Haas to move into second following a 21st-lap caution flag. Montieth again extended his lead to 1.5 seconds with five laps to go. With lapped traffic looming ahead, Dietrich began chipping away at the lead, and closed to within three-quarters of a second when the checkered flag waived.

 

“It just goes to show the caliber he is and the rest of the teams are here at Lincoln,” said Montieth of his Lincoln rival, “To start that deep in the field and be able run up through like that…I know what a pain in the butt that is. Fortunately, we had clear air and I’m standing here.”

 

The win was the 49th of Montieth’s Lincoln career.

 

Haas crossed third, followed by All-Star points leader Dale Blaney and Austin Hogue. Sixth through tenth were Aaron Ott, 18th-starting Sheldon Haudenschild, Tim Shaffer, Kyle Moody, and Lance Dewease.

 

Niki Young was uninjured in a spectacular second-lap crash on the front stretch.

 

Heats for the 410’s were won by Moody, Freddie Rahmer, Dewease, and Hogue, with Parker Price-Miller winning the B-Main. Brian Montieth won the Dash. Fast time in time trials over the 40-car field was set by Dale Blaney with a one-lap time of 13.079-seconds (103.219 MPH).

 

 

Jeff Halligan took advantage of leader Phil Walter’s spinout in turn two of lap 15 to score his second win of the year in the 20-lap “358” sprint car feature. Walter was in the midst of a six-car race for the lead when Walter was collected by a spinning lapped car, and incident which also collected fifth-place and Lincoln points leader Doug Hammaker.

 

Halligan led the final five laps to join Hammaker as the only repeat winners of the season. Dwight Leppo caught Matt Campbell on the final lap, with Campbell, Isaac Sneeringer, and lady driver Brie Hershey rounding out the top five.

 

Heats for the 27 358’s were won by Campbell, Halligan, and Sneeringer, with Bill Stine winning the consolation.

DIETRICH EARNS “DIRT CLASSIC” GOLDEN TICKET WITH $ 7,000 JOHN GLEIM JR. EXCAVATING NIGHT WIN
(Click on headline link above for full story & results)

Hammaker makes last turn pass become first Lincoln repeat winner in 358 sprints

 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 6/6/2015 – Danny Dietrich was hearing things at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

 

And that was good, because it kept his elbows up in a 35-lap feature that paid $7,000 to win and an automatic starting spot in the September 26th Lincoln “Dirt Classic” paying $20,000 to win.

 

“I don’t how far ahead I was,” said Dietrich after scoring his second Lincoln win of the year and 25th of his career in the Pigeon Hills, “When you get out front there you think you hear people. I thought Stevie was under me in turn four that one lap. I kinda moved down on the straightaway because I thought I heard somebody.”

 

Second place Stevie Smith, who wasn’t as close as Dietrich thought, got into Dietrich’s dirty air every time he tried to pull close, and settled for the runner-up spot 1.9 seconds behind Sandoe’s Fruit Market/Hickory Run Orchards/Weikert’s Livestock #48.

 

After gathering points through time trials and qualifiers that saw the early time trailers start at the back of their respective heats, Dietrich (ninth in time trials and winner of his heat) drew the number three pill for the redraw at the front of the feature field.

 

Polesitter and early-race leader Kyle Moody was nearly collected and did a “360” to keep moving when Brent Marks spun out on turn four of lap six. At the time, Moody had a three-second lead. Just before the caution, Dietrich caught Ott for the runner-up spot.

 

Moody led the next seven laps before Dietrich slid under him exiting turn two of lap 14. Dietrich led the rest of the way, and Moody did another “360” under green on turn four of lap 14, just before being collected by a spun-out Tim Glatfelter in turn one to end his night.

 

Ott assumed second for the restart, but Stevie Smith drove around the Bruner’s Service Center for second on lap 22. At the time, Dietrich was 1.53 seconds ahead. Smith did his best to close on the leader, and Dietrich, feeling the pressure, had one close call trying to clear Adam Wilt with only a few laps to go.

 

“I had to kinda push the issue with Adam,” explained Dietrich, “But I had to get moving. I wasn’t going to drive into him, but I had to press the issue and it worked out for us. Here we are.”

 

“Stevie’s fast every time he hits the track,” said Dietrich, “It feels good to beat him because his winning percentage is pretty darn good…a lot better than ours. To beat Stevie and Greg and Brian and Aaron…all those guys…it’s just awesome to get a win on the big stage here tonight.”

 

Ott settled for third, with tenth-starting Brian Montieth coming home fourth. New one-lap track record holder Lucas Wolfe crossed fifth. Sixth through tenth were Greg Hodnett, 12th-starting Alan Krimes, 14th-starting Niki Young, Lance Dewease, and 16th-starting Freddie Rahmer.

 

Heats for the 410’s were won by Billy Dietrich, Marks, Moody, and Danny Dietrich, with Austin Hogue winning the consolation. Fast time in time trials over the 33-car field was set by Lucas Wolfe with a record-setting one-lap time 12.719 seconds (106.140 MPH). Brent Marks won the “Fans Choice” Dash.

 

Lincoln Speedway and Central PA “358” Point Series leader Doug Hammaker became the first repeat winner of 2015 in the 20-lap “358” sprint feature. And he did it in dramatic fashion, sliding polesitter and race-long leader Ryan Higgins in heavy lapped traffic on the final two turns to the checkered flag.

 

Higgins, shooting for his first career win, settled for second, with 11th-starting Kevin Nouse, Cody Fletcher, and Tyler Esh rounding out the top five. Adrian Shaffer, who did a “360” in turn four while racing with Higgins for the lead with six laps to go, lost several spots but came back to finish sixth.

 

Heats for the 30 358’s were won by Hammaker, Matt Campbell, and John Braim, with Jeff Rohrbaugh winning the consolation.

 

Next Saturday night, June 13th, the NEW ALL-STAR CIRCUIT OF CHAMPIONS come to take on the Pennsylvania Posse. The 410 Sprints will be joined by the 358 Sprints. In addition, we will be holding York Flooring KIDS BIG WHEEL RACES! Time trials get underway at 7:30 PM, with gates opening at 5:30 PM.

UNSETTLED WEATHER AND A FORECAST OF RAIN THROUGHOUT THE NIGHT BRINGS CANCELLATION OF THE 2015 USAC EASTERN STORM WEDNESDAY NIGHT AT LINCOLN SPEEDWAY

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

JUNE 3, 2015

CONTACT:   BOB MILLER

EASTERN STORM USAC NON-WING SPRINTS

 

UNSETTLED WEATHER AND A FORECAST OF RAIN THROUGHOUT THE NIGHT BRINGS CANCELLATION OF THE 2015 USAC EASTERN STORM WEDNESDAY NIGHT AT LINCOLN SPEEDWAY

 

It is with great disappointment,  that rain will again force the cancellation of the  Eastern Storm USAC Non-Wing Sprint Tour for the second night in a row, this time taking its toll at the Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, PA.

 

The weather is extremely unsettled and with a 50% or greater chance of rain throughout the day and  late into the night, the chances of completing this event are not favorable.  In 2014, we were up against very similar weather conditions and chose to battle Mother Nature and we lost.     So it is with the highest respect and consideration of both race fans and competitors that we make this decision.

 

The Lincoln Eastern Storm event will be rescheduled when USAC returns in 2016  again offering a complete show plus the make-up features that were rained out in 2014.

 

For nine years, I have truly put my heart into trying to make the USAC Eastern Storm a success , promoting two or three of the tour events each year.    Like many race fans, I too want to see the race, but the weather is just not working to our advantage.

 

Although Friday night is open for USAC,  without the proper advance advertising of the rain date,  this is not a good option.  Other considerations also include that drivers in both divisions would also be faced with a  race date conflict at another track on Friday night.

 

Thank you for your support and strong interest in the USAC Eastern Storm.   With your help and the continued support of the current participating tracks who are part of the Eastern Storm, we will keep this non-wing excitement alive going forward.

 

Please watch for additional details as USAC and event promoters Bob Miller and Ray Herold set plans for the 2016 return of the USAC Eastern Storm.

BRIAN MONTIETH THRILLS IN ANOTHER LINCOLN WIN
(Click on headline link above for full story & results)

Matt Campbell wins fourth career 358 sprint main and Kurt Zimmerman leads all the way for All American Outlaw win

 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 5/30/2015 ¨C Anytime Brian Montieth is on track at Lincoln Speedway, there is never a lack of entertainment.

 

Montieth didn¡¯t disappoint again Saturday night as he came from his 11th starting spot to score the win in the 25-lap 410 Sprint car feature.

 

But it wasn¡¯t quite as easy as it might read on paper as the four time track champion raced past Gerard McIntyre, Jr. to take the lead on lap 19 but fell back to third a lap later after making contact with the inside guardrail.

 

But it didn¡¯t faze the Phoenixville driver as he stormed back into the lead two laps later and drove off to pick up his 48th career track win and fourth this season in the Pigeon Hills.

 

¡°We had a good start,¡° stated the driver of the Jerry Parrish owned No. 21 sprint. ¡°This type of narrow track and anybody knows on a Saturday night like this, anybody can win the thing. If it wasn¡¯t for lapped traffic, I don¡¯t think we would have caught the leaders in that first set.¡±

 

Brandon Rahmer led the first five laps before yielding to McIntyre exiting the second turn. While McIntyre set the pace, Rahmer had his hands full with Adam Wilt, Cory Haas and Montieth who was marching his way to the front.

 

Wilt took over second place after nine laps with Haas and Montieth getting by Rahmer a lap later.

 

Montieth took third place from Haas on lap 15 as all top four cars ran under a blanket.

 

Montieth then disposed of Wilt on the 18th lap for second place with a slider in turn three and then made the same move to take the lead from McIntyre a lap later.

 

The lead was quick-lived as Montieth brushed the wall and immediately fell back to third place with McIntyre reclaiming the top spot.

 

But Montieth was not to be denied as he regrouped and two laps later retook the lead and raced to his seventh overall win this season.

 

¡°I gotta give 110 percent because my boys give 110 percent,¡± Montieth said of his hard working crew. ¡°The last couple of weeks I¡¯ve had to work seven days a week and have been barely getting here on time so to be able to get in this thing and be comfortable is the key. It¡¯s all done in the garage and I¡¯m just the glorified guy standing here.¡±

 

Wilt was able to fight his way around McIntyre with three laps to go to finish in the runner-up spot with 10th starting Danny Dietrich coming on strong to finish in the third spot.

 

McIntyre faded to fourth at the checkered flag ahead of Haas with Jim Siegel, Tyler Ross, Tim Glatfelter, Austin Hogue and Robbie Kendall completing the top 10 finishers.

 

Heats for the 28 410¡¯s were won by McIntyre, Glatfelter and Haas, with Billy Dietrich winning the consolation.

 

Seventh-starting Matt Campbell picked up his fourth career win in the 20-lap 358 Sprint car feature.

 

Third-starting CJ Tracy set the pace through the first eight laps, before Campbell took the lead following a lap eight restart. Tracy regained the lead on the 13th lap, but, a flat tire on the restart, handed the lead back to Campbell, who ran unchallenged the final laps to pick-up his first win of the 2015 season.

 

358 Sprint point leader Doug Hammaker came from 11th to finish second, followed by Brie Hershey, 10th starting Jeff Rohrbaugh and Jeff Halligan.

 

Completing the top 10 were Todd Rittenhouse, Jr. 19th starting Chandler Leiby, Brian Allman, Cody Fletcher and last week¡¯s winner Cole Young.

 

Heats for the 27 358¡¯s were won by Tracy, Lucas Montgomery and Hershey.

 

Kurt Zimmerman led all 20 laps to score the win in the All American Outlaw feature.

 

Zimmerman started on the pole and held off teammate Rich Hulson to pick up the win with Jim Chenoweth, Dylan Keim and Carnie Fryfogle rounding out the top five finishers.

KRIMES SURVIVES WILD LINCOLN HILLY RIFE MEMORIAL TO CLAIM $5,000 TOP PRIZE
(Click on headline link above for full story & results)

Cole Young scores first career sprint car win in 358¡¯s; Bill Diehl comes from 12th to win Central PA Legends feature

 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 5/23/2015 ¨C Just another night of professional auto racing at the fabulous Lincoln Speedway.

 

Krimes capitalized on a late-race spin by leader Danny Dietrich to score his first win of the season in the 30-lap Hilly Rife Memorial on Saturday.

 

¡°I don¡¯t know what to say,¡± said Krimes upon exiting the family-owned Kimmet Construction/Wayne Carini #87 in victory lane after scoring his first win of the season and claiming the $5,000 top prize, ¡°I think Danny had it won there. He got around us early on and we were racing pretty hard. He got in front of us and don¡¯t think I had anything for him. You don¡¯t see that (Dietrich¡¯s spin) very often. He and the 21 have been far and away the two fastest cars, and I think Brian was behind me¡­those two guys have been real fast and we just haven¡¯t been able to keep up with them. But we were pretty good tonight.¡±

 

Krimes restarted ninth (up two spots) for a complete restart following a spectacular opening lap crash that saw the sprinters of fourth-starting Brandon Rahmer and 20th-starting Robbie Kendall flip in turn one. Also involved were Glenndon Forsythe and Gerard McIntyre, Jr. All four drivers were uninjured, but they were all done for the night.

 

Krimes moved into the top five on an 11th lap restart following a spin by fourth-place Matt Boland in turn four.

 

He caught Scott Fisher for fourth on lap 14, and was still running there when Dietrich spun and collected third-place Adam Wilt in turn four of lap 27. Glatfelter, who was running second, and Krimes assumed first and second, and Krimes wasted no time driving around Glatfelter for the lead in the first two turns of the restart.

 

¡°The track was a little wider tonight, and that played into our hand a little bit. Once I saw Danny spin out and collect Adam, I knew we were second at the time. I had about three more inches on my wing, so I pulled it the whole way back and just held on from there.¡±

 

Krimes¡¯ final margin of victory was 1.53 seconds over Glatfelter, with 13th-starting Brian Montieth, Niki Young, and 17th-starting Tyler Ross completing the top five. Sixth through tenth were 23rd-starting Jim Siegel, Freddie Rahmer (who came from the rear after a mid-race spin), Steve Owings, 24th-starting Chase Dietz, and Cory Haas.

 

Heats for the 31 410 sprinters were won by Haas, Owings, and Young, with Tim Wagaman winning the consolation.

 

Cole Young, who just celebrated his 15th birthday in April, scored his first career sprint car win in the 20-lap ¡°358¡± sprint car feature.

 

Young started on the outside of the front row, led the first two laps of the event, then yielded to sixth-starting Matt Campbell. Campbell quickly opened up a three second lead before being collected in a three-car crash at the back of the field in turn two of lap eight. Young assumed the lead for the restart, and dominated the rest of the way, crossing 2.10 seconds in front of Cody Fletcher, who registered his career best finish at Lincoln by holding off two-time track champ Jeff Rohrbaugh in the process. Fourth and fifth were Chandler Leiby and Matt Findley.

 

Lincoln Speedway and Central PA point series leader Doug Hammaker came from the back to finish tenth after a six-car crash on the front stretch of lap nine.

 

Heats for the 33 358 Sprinters were won by Brie Hershey, Leiby, Chris Arnold, and Hammaker, with Phil Walter winning the consolation.

 

Craley¡¯s Bill Diehl drew the ¡®12¡¯ pill for the inversion and then promptly raced to the win in the 15-lap Central PA Legends feature. He took the lead from Joe Ehrisman on lap nine and held off a determined Bob Stough over the final five laps.

Chris Spidle, Ehrisman, and Shane Glatfelter completed the top five.

 

Jacob Feltch was transported to a nearby hospital after complaining of back pain following a hard crash on lap nine of the feature.

 

Heats for the 26 Legends were won by Diehl, Shane Glatfelter, and Chad Glatfelter.

POSSE SWEEP IS OH SO SWEET AT LINCOLN SPEEDWAY
(Click on headline link above for full story & results)

Greg Hodnett leads PA Posse Charge to take home $10,000 win

 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 5/13/2015 – Greg Hodnett almost made it look easy.

 

Hodnett set fast time over the 47-car field in time trials. Finished second in his heat. Led all six laps of the Dash to start on the pole of the 35-lap Gettysburg Clash. And then finished off his night by leading all 35-laps of the highly anticipated rematch against the World of Outlaws to pick up his 14th career Outlaw win and the $10,000 winners check that went with it.

 

“I’ve struggled here (Lincoln Speedway), said Hodnett in victory lane. “Getting a great draw in qualifying, taking advantage of it, and obviously getting a great draw in the Dash was huge. We were fortunate enough to take advantage of it and pull out a win.”

 

As proud as the PA Posse was to get the win against the Outlaws, it didn’t stop there. Outside frontrow starter Stevie Smith and third-starting Ryan Smith gave the Posse faithful even more bragging rights as they finished second and third respectively to give the PA Posse a podium sweep when the dust settled after 35 laps.

 

Fourth-starting Brad Sweet and seventh-starting Shane Stewart finally got the Outlaws on the board with a fourth and fifth place finish.

 

Completing the top-10 were Lucas Wolfe, defending Lincoln Speedway Champion Alan Krimes came from 13th to finish 7th, eighth-starting Brent Marks finished eighth, Outlaw Kerry Madsen was ninth, and local favorite Danny Dietrich earned a hard fought 10th place finished after starting 19th.

 

In all, three of the top-five and six of the top-10 spots were filled by the PA Posse.

 

Defending six-time World of Outlaw Champion Donny Schatz needed a provisional starting spot after failing to qualify for the feature and earned Hard-Charger honors by finishing 15th after starting 25th.

 

Fast time in time trials over the 47-car field was set by Hodnett with a one-lap time of 12.817-seconds. Heats for the 410 sprinters were won by Kerry Madsen, Shane Stewart, Brad Sweet, and Brent Marks, with Lance Dewease winning the B-Main and Jason Sides winning the C-Main. Greg Hodnett won the Dash.

 

This Saturday night, May 16th, there will be no racing at Lincoln Speedway as the PA Posse travels to Williams Grove to take on the World of Outlaws.

 

Then next Saturday night, May 16th, Lincoln hosts the ANNUAL HILLY RIFE MEMORIAL for 410 Sprints, plus 358 Sprints and Central PA Legends.

DIETRICH PREPS FOR WORLD OF OUTLAWS, CATCHES MONTIETH FOR THRILLING LINCOLN WIN

Halligan claims first career win in 358 sprints; Chad Earnst best of Central PA Legends

 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 5/9/2015 – “Bring on the Outlaws next week!”

 

So exclaimed Danny Dietrich after claiming his first Lincoln win of the season in the 25-lap Prospect Metal and Used Auto Parts Night feature event at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

 

For the second straight week, Dietrich and points leader Brian Montieth thrilled the crowd with another wild ride through lapped traffic through the first 22 non-stop laps. But this time, it was Dietrich turning the tables on Montieth to score his 24th career Lincoln win.

 

Montieth started tenth and worked his way through the field to grab the lead from polesitter and race-long leader Steve Owings exiting turn two of lap 15. It looked like Montieth was en-route to his fourth win in as many races (counting Williams Grove the last two Fridays and Lincoln last Saturday), but Dietrich, who started 12th, reeled him in as the two raced through heavy lapped traffic with five laps to go.

 

At the start-finish line to complete lap 22, Dietrich pulled alongside the Premier Auto Works #21, with electronic scoring showing Dietrich with a .001-second lead. That’s when the event’s only caution came out for Cory Hass, who spun in turn two of lap 23.

 

“It didn’t really matter who was leading at the time,” said Dietrich, “I got really good through the middle down there and able to keep my drive off turn two. That’s where I made all my passes early because everyone is so fast around the top.”

 

On the final restart, Dietrich held off Montieth, crossing 1.19 seconds ahead at the checkered.

 

“We’re gonna try,” answered Dietrich when asked whether he and Montieth could beat the World of Outlaws when they invade Lincoln this coming Wednesday, “It’s been good to see the 48 or 21 sitting here...or anybody from this area. Right now, we’ve been so fast and consistent, the two of us. But I hope some of the other guys can get going because we’re going to need a little help I think.”

 

Owings hung on for third, with Niki Young and 11th-starting Lance Dewease completing the top five. Rounding out the top ten were Robbie Kendall, 22nd-starting Alan Krimes, Hunter Mackison, Austin Hogue, and 16th-starting Adam Wilt.

 

Heats for the 36 410 sprinters were won by Montieth, Kendall, Hogue, and Danny Dietrich, with Aaron Ott winning the consolation.

 

Jeff Halligan started on the pole and led every lap of the 20-lap 358 sprint car feature to score his first career sprint car win by 1.68 seconds over outside front row starter Lucas Montgomery, who ran second the entire way. Friday night Williams Grove winner Brie Hersey advancing from sixth starting spot to cross third at the end. Kyle Denmyer and Cole Young completed the top five.

 

Heats for the 25 358 Sprinters were won by Michael Hamer, Montgomery, and Young.

 

East Berlin’s Chad Earnst claimed his first career Lincoln win in the 15-lap Central PA Legends feature. He started fourth and assumed the outside front row when Chis Spidle spun in turn two of the initial start. He grabbed the lead on the restart from polesitter Jacob Feltch and was scored the leader of every lap.

 

Wild racing in behind saw Duane Watson cross second, but he was later disqualified after a post-race inspection, handing second to Feltch, with 14th-starting Mason Chaney credited with third, Bob Stough fourth, and Chad Glatfelter fifth.

 

Heats for the 28 Legends were won by Scott Haudeshell, Stough, and Earnst, with Rick Hartwig winning the consolation.

 

Lincoln Speedway will be back in action this Wednesday night, May 13th, as the WORLD OF OUTLAWS invade the Pigeon Hills to take on the PA Posse. Time trials will get underway at 7:30 PM, with pit gates opening at 3:30 p.m. and general admission gates opening at 4 p.m.

 

Next Saturday night, May 16th, Lincoln Speedway will be dark allowing the Lincoln PA Posse Teams and fans the opportunity to travel and battle the World of Outlaws.

MONTIETH CARRIES STERNER CEMENT COLORS TO THRILLING WIN IN STERNER MEMORIAL
(Click on headline link above for full story & results)

Rohrbaugh holds off Hammaker in “358” sprint feature; Zimmerman tenth to first in All-American Outlaws

 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 5/2/2015 – Intense. That was the operative word to describe the 33-lap, $6,900-to-win 12th Annual Weldon Sterner Memorial at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

 

And standing in victory lane for his third Lincoln win of the year and second win in two nights was Brian Montieth, who eats intensity for breakfast.

 

“There wasn’t’ much room anywhere, and we weren’t actually very good there at the end. I was worried, and tried looking at the scoreboard, but there was way too much stuff going on,” said Montieth after scoring his 47th career Lincoln win, “I was trying to run defensive and be offensive the whole time. Running first here sort-of sucks. It’s always better running second except when you get in that kind of lapped traffic.”

 

The win ended another storybook night for the Weldon Sterner Memorial, with the Jerry Parrish team carrying the Sterner Cement logo on the top wing of the car normally numbered 21.

 

Time trials and an inversion at the front of the field put Montieth seventh for the start alongside fast time trailer Greg Hodnett. Those two battled for position in the early stages of the race, with previous race winner and polesitter J.J. Grasso leading the first 14 laps.

 

The only caution of the race came out for Jim Siegel and Glenndon Forsythe, who got together in turn four of lap three.

 

The last 30 laps went non-stop, with the leaders racing through heavy lapped traffic from lap 11 on. That’s when things began to change. Danny Dietrich was the first to make his move, catching Robbie Kendall for second on lap 12, with Montieth following on his heels into third. On the next lap, Montieth got around Dietrich for the runner-up spot. Two laps later, Montieth took the lead for good. But Dietrich, who caught Grasso on lap 16, wouldn’t let Montieth get away.

 

“I have to say I don’t even remember it,” answered Montieth when asked about the pass for the lead, “I was too busy trying to hit marks and trying not to screw anybody up or wad myself up.”

 

Those two fought through lapped traffic the remainder of the race, with Dietrich closing on Montieth several times, only to have Montieth make slider after slider to put lapped cars in between. Despite 30 non-stop laps, Montieth’s final margin of victory was a mere half-second.

 

“Danny tried choosing a line and make that pass…toward the end there the middle had a lot of rubber, and it helps with some of those slide jobs driving through the corners,” said the Phoenixville points leader, “This is probably one of the harder intense races I’ve ever driven here.”

 

“Not much excites me, and my heart was beating,” said car owner Jerry Parrish, “Brian’s the most determined driver behind the wheel. I know Danny was back there licking his chops waiting for a lapped car to choke him up and take advantage. He ran good too. I’m glad we’re standing here. Honestly, this is what exciting racing is about right here at THIS track.”

 

Third through fifth were Grasso, Hodnett, and Kendall, with Brent Marks, Alan Krimes, Tim Glatfelter, Niki Young, and Freddie Rahmer completing the top ten.

Fast time in time trials over the 30-car field was set by Hodnett with a one-lap time of 13.164-seconds (102.552 MPH). Heats for the 410 sprinters were won by Glatfelter, Scott Fisher, and Grasso, with Nicole Bower winning the consolation.

 

Jeff Rohrbaugh moved into sole possession of second place on the all-time Lincoln 358 sprint car win list with his 12th career win in their 20-lap feature event.

 

Rohrbaugh started eighth and found himself the leader after getting together with polesitter and race-long leader Kody Lehman on turn two of lap 17. Lehman spun out, collecting sixth-place Cody Fletcher and Dylan Welsh. Rohrbaugh never stopped, and assumed the race lead for the restart.

 

Rohrbaugh held off Lincoln and Central PA point series leader Doug Hammaker by 1.25 seconds at the end, with Matt Campbell, Chris Frank, and Ryan Wilson rounding out the top five.

 

Heats for the 30 358 Sprinters were won by Hammaker, Jordon Givler, and Frank, with Cody Fairchok winning the consolation.

 

Pasadena, Maryland’s Kurt Zimmerman came from tenth starting spot to score his fourth career Lincoln win in the 20-lap All-American Outlaw feature.

 

Fred and Justin Cullum crossed second and third, followed by Rick Hulson and Bryan Green.

 

Heats for the 17 All American Outlaws were won by Green and Justin Cullum.

Shaffer makes another last turn pass for 358 sprint win; Chad Glatfelter best of Central PA Legends

 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 4/25/2015 – A close call in turn four of lap 21 turned out to be the winning move for J.J. Grasso en route to his second Lincoln career win on Saturday night.

 

Grasso, who led every lap from his outside front row starting spot, was bogged down by side-by-side racing lapped traffic when he felt the heat from 11th-starting Lincoln points leader Brian Montieth.

 

“We had some tense moments there when I was getting to the lapped cars. I didn’t know how close anyone was getting to me, but I saw the 21 on the board and I had to make a move,” said Grasso in victory lane, “I had ‘em running two-wide in front of me and I couldn’t get by them.”

 

Grasso and Steve Owings actually made contact as Grasso was splitting lapped cars to stay in front. Owings saved it, but dropped to the infield with two laps to go.

 

“I feel a little bit bad for the 21A there, because I kind of scared him up. I was hoping I wasn’t gonna wreck, but I felt like I had to do it.”

 

“This is huge,” said Grasso, “I want to thank my dad. He’s put a lot of money in this, along with BK Trucking and C&B Mushrooms. This is unbelievable. We were quick from the get-go. We were terrible last week, but my dad and the crew worked on it hard, and again tonight in the pits.

 

Grasso’s final margin of victory was 1.53 seconds over Montieth, with Tyler Ross scoring his best-ever finish in third, Cory Haas fourth, and defending track champ Alan Krimes fifth. Rounding out the top ten were Freddie Rahmer, Adam Wilt, 16th-starting Jim Siegel, Kyle Moody, and 20th-starting Austin Hogue.

 

Heats for the 33 410 sprinters were won by Haas, Montieth, Grasso, and Freddie Rahmer, with Brandon Rahmer winning the consolation.

 

For the second time this season, Adrian Shaffer made a last turn pass to win a 358 sprint car feature.

 

Shaffer gave car owner Stewart Smith a 52nd birthday present by making a perfect last turn slider to get by Chris Arnold and score the win.

 

A disappointed Arnold crossed second, with tenth-starting Chandler Leiby, Doug Hammaker, and Kevin Nouse completing the top five. Sixth through tenth were Matt Campbell, 21st-starting Jeff Rohrbaugh, early race leader John Braim, 19th-starting Todd Rittenhouse, Jr., and Tyler Esh.

 

Heats for the 32 358 Sprinters were won by Esh, Leiby, Nouse, and Doug Hammaker, with Rohrbaugh winning the consolation.

 

Chad Glatfelter started on the outside front row, beat polesitter Harlon Leppo to the stripe to complete lap one, and led every lap of the 15-lap Central PA Legends feature. Leppo spun exiting turn four of the final lap, and was credited with a 17th place finish.

 

Taking advantage of Leppo’s bad luck was opening night winner Bob Stough, who ran third the entire race until Leppo’s final lap misfortune.

 

Third through fifth were Chad Earnst, Bill Diehl, and Mason Chaney.

 

Heats for the 23 Legends were won by Leppo, Chad Glatfelter, and Chaney.

Doug Hammaker claims second career Lincoln win in 358 sprints; Kyle Martin holds off Brian Walls in Street Stocks

 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 4/18/2015 – Score one for the little guys in Saturday night’s thriller at Lincoln Speedway.

 

Glenndon Forsythe started on the pole and claimed his first Lincoln win in more than a year (8/13/13). But he didn’t lead every lap, as four cars were still in the hunt when the event’s only caution came out as the leaders headed into turns three and four on the last lap.

 

Forsythe led the first 18 non-stop laps before sixth-starting Austin Hogue, driving the other Livingston Lawn Car sprinter, raced down the York racer exiting turn four in heavy lapped traffic on lap 19. Hogue led the next two laps, but couldn’t get away from Forsythe, who reclaimed the lead exiting turn two of lap 22.

 

As those two raced for the lead, outside front row starter Mike Bittinger and ninth-starting Alan Krimes entered the battle, with all four cars still in the hunt when the event’s only caution came out for a slowing Billy Dietrich just in front the leaders in turn four.

 

Forsythe withstood the final one-lap dash to the checkered, crossing just in front of Hogue, with a hard-charging Jim Siegel catching both Krimes and Bittinger for third on the final lap. Bittinger and Krimes finished fourth and fifth.

 

Rounding out the top ten were 12th-starting Lance Dewease, 11th-starting Brian Montieth, Adam Wilt, Cory Haas, and Kyle Moody.

 

Heats for the 32 410 Sprinters were won by Wilt, Krimes, Siegel, and Moody, with Brandon Rahmer winning the consolation.

 

Freddie Rahmer was uninjured in a heat race flip that saw him bicycle and crash hard into the fourth turn wall. The car was done for the night.

 

Carlisle’s Doug Hammaker held onto his Central PA point series lead by claiming his second Lincoln career win in the 20-lap 358 sprint car feature.

 

Hammaker started third and took the lead from lady driver Ashley Cappetta on lap five. Cappetta actually led the first four laps, but a slowly-deflating left rear tire forced her to stop while running fourth with three laps to go.

 

Once in front, Hammaker led the rest of the way, despite the challenges of bottom-feeder Jeff Rohrbaugh and 11th-starting rim-riding Kevin Nouse over the latter stages of the race. Hammaker’s final margin of victory was .38 seconds.

 

Crossing fourth and fifth were opening night winner Todd Rittenhouse, Jr. and Friday night Trail-Way winner Isaac Sneeringer. Sixth through tenth were 13th-staring Adrian Shaffer, 12th-starting Matt Campbell, Chandler Leiby, 16th-starting Cody Fletcher, and polesitter Kyle Denmyer.

 

Heats for the 37 358 Sprinters were won by Ryan Wilson, Rohrbaugh, Todd Reed, and Nouse, with Matt Findley winning the consolation.

 

Kyle Martin received a tire rub from good buddy Brian Walls while crossing the finish line to win the 20-lap street stock feature. The two leaders got caught up by a lapped car while racing for the win at the line, with Walls settling for second.

 

Third through fifth were Ryan Smith, early race leader Chris Derr, and 11th-starting Dustin Hollinger.

 

Heats for the 24 Street Stocks were won by Martin, Brian Walls, and Jason Gessaman.
