McINTYRE MANUFACTURERS NIGHT WINNER TO CLAIM LINCOLN SEASON FINALE
(Click on headline link above for full story & results)

Hammaker ends championship season with 358 sprint win; champ Zimmerman takes All-American Outlaw feature

 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 10/10/2015 – Gerard McIntyre, Jr. certainly picked a good night to win his first race of the year. A heat win assured him of a Hank Gentzler Memorial Manufacturers Night prize package valued at more than $3,000, and the win in the season finale earned him another $4,000.

 

“It came down to the very last race,” said McIntyre upon exiting his family Weaver’s Body Shop/NAPA Auto Parts/William McIntyre & Sons #16 in victory lane, “It’s been such a long year. To be standing here…I can’t thank all these guys enough for hanging with me. And hopefully this will give us a boost in the off-season and get things back going for next year. At least I know we’re competitive.”

 

Polesitter Mike Bittinger led the first 13 laps before J.J. Grasso took the lead. But in the process, Grasso damaged the front wing of his sprinter, which finally fell off entering turn one of lap 20.

 

When the caution came out, fourth-starting McIntyre pulled onto his back bumper. McIntyre pulled alongside Grasso several times during the caution, and made the race-winning pass on the restart.

 

“I was going around him anyway,” quipped McIntyre when asked chasing the Grasso #37, “I didn’t wat to take any chances. I knew I was the better car there at the end. He was fast and got around me when I was screwing around at the beginning. Everything went our way tonight. I drew a #1 pill for the heats and drew the #1 pill for the Manufacturer’s prize package. We’ll be back at Lincoln next year.”

 

Tenth-starting Greg Hodnett took the runner-up spot from Grasso on the next-to-last lap, but crossed 2.25 seconds behind McIntyre, with Grasso hanging on for third. Ninth-starting Adam Wilt and Tyler Ross completed the top five, with Aaron Ott, 18th-startng Alan Krimes, Bittinger, Steve Owings, and Jim Siegel rounding out the top ten.

 

Heats for the 35 410’s were won by McIntyre, Kyle Moody, Grasso, and Hodnett, with Cory Haas winning the consolation despite a 360-degree spin in the middle of the event.

 

Carlisle’s Doug Hammaker added an exclamation point to his Central PA point series and Lincoln Speedway championships by scoring the win in the 20-lap “358” sprint car feature.

 

Hammaker started third and caught polesitter and race leader Brie Hershey on lap five. He held off the late-race challenges of 15th-starting Adrian Shaffer to claim his third win of the season in the Pigeon Hills. Just like McIntyre, it was his fourth career Lincoln win, and came by 1.75 seconds over Shaffer.

 

Third through fifth were Hershey, Matt Campbell (who came from the rear following a fourth turn spin on lap four), and Kyle Denmyer.

 

Heats for the 26 358’s were won by Cole Young, Denmyer, and Phil Walter, with Tyler Walton setting a new 5-lap track record in winning the consolation with a time of 1 minute, 19.25 seconds.

 

Kurt Zimmerman polished off a series championship season by becoming the fourth and final leader of the 20-lap All-American Outlaw feature. Zimmerman came from ninth starting spot to grab the lead from Bryan Green during a four-car battle for the lead on lap nine.

 

He led the rest of the way, with Randy Doty coming from 11th starting spot to finish second. Third through fifth were Justin Cullum, Hunter Nester, and Green.

 

The All-American Outlaw feature ended the 2015 Lincoln racing season, with annual Lincoln Race Car Flea Market coming up on Saturday, November 14th (6 a.m. to noon), followed by the 2015 Lincoln Speedway Awards Banquet on Saturday, November 21st (6 PM-12:30 AM).

MONTIETH HOLDS OFF SMITH IN LINCOLN “DIRT CLASSIC” THRILLER
(Click on headline link above for full story & results)

Caps off fifth track championship with $20,000 win; Manufacturers Night season finale in two weeks

 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 9/26/2015 –Brian Montieth showed the huge crowd why is the track champ by claiming the $20,000 top prize in the Second Annual “Dirt Classic” at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

 

After exchanging numerous slide jobs over the final few laps, Montieth held off inaugural “Dirt Classic” winner Stevie Smith to score a milestone 50th career Lincoln win.

 

And although it got down to Montieth and Smith at the end, it was Montieth’s double-pass of third-place Jac Haudenschild and second-place Brent Marks that was key to the win.

 

“Stevie was up there just trying not to make a mistake and trying to keep his speed,” said Montieth upon exiting the Jerry Parrish-owned Auto Locator/Premier Auto Works #21 in victory lane, “That restart when I got from fourth to second was the kicker for me. The car started to go and I got off my butt I guess.”

 

Smith started on the pole as high point man after time trials and two sets of qualifying events, but spotted the lead to outside front row starter Brent Marks for the first 11 laps.

 

Smith then pulled the slider on Marks to grab the lead in turn four of lap 12, and led through lap 26.

 

Montieth, who started third, ran fourth behind fourth-starting Haudenschild the first half of the race. It was after a 21st lap restart that Montieth passed both Haudenschild and Marks to move into the runner-up spot. At the time, Smith’s lead was nearly two seconds.

 

“It was follow the leader and I saw Greg trying to make a move when I was trying to make moves, and this place is tough in lapped traffic…especially when it’s just one lane around the top. The only time the bottom worked was on those restarts when everybody was slowed down.”

 

Montieth tracked down the leader over the next five laps and caught Smith on the backstretch of lap 27. Although Smith stayed close the rest of the way and actually slid in front of Montieth in heavy lapped traffic late in the race, Montieth was scored the leader of every lap.

 

“Once I saw Stevie, I got back on the wheel again, said Montieth, “If I made a mistake, it was on me…but I knew Stevie was going to be tough and I just tried to make the track as wide as I could there at the end.”

 

 “I can’t say enough about this team. We haven’t had a real good run in the last few months, and I’m just happy for this team right now,” said Montieth.

 

Smith settled for second, with Marks third and Haudenschild fourth. Danny Dietrich, who flipped in his first heat, came from 17th starting spot to cross fifth, with Greg Hodnett running fifth the entire race until Dietrich caught him in the final few laps. Seventh through tenth were Lucas Wolfe, Aaron Ott, Gerard McIntyre, Jr., and B Main winner and 21st starting Dave Blaney.

 

Fast time in time trials over the 41-car field was set by Jac Haudenschild with a one-lap time of 13.090-seconds (103.132 MPH).

 

Two rounds of heats were won by Wolfe, Smith, Krimes, Marks, Tim Glatfelter, Billy Dietrich, Cory Haas, JJ Grasso, and Blaney.

CRISWELL ACHIEVES ULTIMATE GOAL WITH FIRST “SPORTSMAN 100” WIN
(Click on headline link above for full story & results)

Rookie John Martin claims first career victory in PASS Racesaver Sprints

 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 9/19/2015 – The driver known as “the big cat” donned his big cat shirt in victory lane after scoring his first-ever “Lawrence Chevrolet Sportsman 100” win at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

 

“Back in February or March, (friend and sponsor) Hal (Bitner) came back from Florida and was in the shop and he brought me this shirt and told me if I won the 100-lapper this year, I’d have to wear it in victory lane,” said Martinsburg, West Virginia’s Chad Criswell in victory lane, “I told him that if I win the 100-lapper, I’ll wear a dress in victory lane!”

 

Counting the $4,000 win, $500 fast time award, $100 bonus for the most laps led, and $1,120.11 in lap money (ask Justin Loh about the 11 cents), Criswell’s total payday was $5,720.11.

 

Criswell started fourth after drawing the #4 inversion pill following his record-breaking time trial run (first driver ever under 15 seconds for a lap in the super sportsman division), and was running third through a series of caution laps when second-place Frankie Herr spun out in turn three of lap 16.

 

Criswell grabbed the lead from polesitter and race-long leader Jay Fannasy on lap 20 and led the final 80 laps.

 

Though Criswell led the rest of the way, it appeared he would receive a serious challenge from Kevin Nouse, who spun on lap three and came back through the field to take the runner-up spot from Mike Enders on lap 73. Nouse was quickly erasing Criswell’s two-second lead when Nouse broke a brake rotor and spun in turns three and four of the 83rd lap.

 

Enders assumed second for the restart, but ended up dropping from the field with a flat tire on lap 96. Chad Trout, who was running fourth, had a tire going down at the time and dove into the pits for a tire change during the final caution. Doug Dodson, who started 17th, was second for the final restart and finished there. Steve Fannasy (who started 12th), hard charger Dave Socks (who started 22nd), and Kenny Edkins (who started 23rd) rounded out the top five.

 

“I’m just happy to come through and get this one off the list,” said Criswell, “This was a long couple of weeks preparing for this race. I’m just happy to be standing here in victory lane. I’ve been a bit of a bear the past two years by finishing second, and I was motivated ever since the end of last year. I keep a photograph of the finishing order of the past two years on my phone just so I can look at it and get mad. That motivates me to keep working hard.”

 

“My guys did a great job tonight,” continued Criswell, “They gave me a good car and we had some luck. I was glad to see that caution with four laps to go. I was trying to not have to deal with lapped traffic. I’ve wanted to win this race for a long time. It’s been on my bucket list ever since I started running in this division. It’ll sink in tomorrow. I love these cars, I love the no power steering, I love the racers…it’s fun, and I’m really proud to win this race.”

 

Sixth through tenth were Tony Jackson (who came from the rear after hitting the restart cone on lap 11), Carmen Perigo, Jr., Bobby Hockenberry, Steve Wilbur, and Jay Fannasy.

 

Fast time in time trials over the 33-car sportsman field was set by Chad Criswell with a NEW one-lap TRACK RECORD time of 14.985-seconds (90.090 MPH). Twin qualifying races for the sportsman were won by Hockenberry and last year’s winner Scott Dellinger, who dropped from the feature on lap 40 and was credited with 23rd.

 

Rookie driver John Martin of Chambersburg raced to his first career win in the 20-lap PASS Racesaver (305) sprint car feature. Martin started second and chased polesitter Ken Duke for the fist nine laps. Once he took the lead in lapped traffic, he drove away from the field.

 

Duke settled for second, with 23rd-starting Tyler Reeser, Erin Statler, and Cale Reigel completing the top five.

 

Heats for the 26 PASS RaceSaver Sprints were won by Stephanie Dodson, Colby Dice, and Reigle.

FREDDIE RAHMER FOURTH TO FIRST IN LAST LAP TO CLAIM FIRST CAREER WIN
(Click on headline link above for full story & results)

Campbell keeps title hopes alive with win in 358 sprints; Dellinger best of super sportsman

 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 9/5/2015 – It’s impossible to describe the last two laps of Saturday’s “410” sprint car feature at Lincoln Speedway.

 

To simplify the shock that left a packed house in awe, Freddie Rahmer came from fourth to first in a wild last lap to score his first career “410” sprint car win, coming on the heels of brother Brandon’s first career win one week earlier.

 

“I knew I had a shot there, but coming through the last corner, that was a little close,” said Rahmer, “I don’t know why it took so long to get going, but I can’t tell you how bad I wanted this, and it means a lot.”

 

Billy Dietrich started outside of polesitter Tim Wagaman and led all but the last lap.

 

Freddie Rahmer took second from Wagaman on lap three and chased Dietrich for the next 15 laps. That’s when tenth-starting and 2015 Lawrence Chevrolet track champ Brian Montieth (who claimed the title in warmups) grabbed the runner-up spot from Rahmer with six laps to go.

 

Then enter 11th-starting Danny Dietrich, who was charging through the field and grabbed the third spot from Rahmer with two laps to go. As Montieth, Rahmer, and Danny Dietrich crossed under the white flag, Rahmer was sandwiched between the two in a three-car battle for second in heavy lapped traffic.

 

Montieth slid high in turns one and two and nearly collected Danny Dietrich, with Rahmer sliding under both cars for second heading up the backstretch. He then slid under Billy Dietrich to take the lead in the final turns.

 

“I saw Montieth at one point. Last week I screwed up when he got to me. It wasn’t his fault. I stepped on it,” said Rahmer of the action around him during the final lap, “But I knew the bottom was coming in. I was waiting for lapped cars, and I didn’t know if I was going to get them. I just ran in hard the last lap and it worked out. Montieth got me off of four and I thought he would have hit the bottom for sure. I don’t know if he slid across or what he did, but it worked out for us.”

All top four cars crossed under the checkered flag within nine-tenths of a second of each other.

 

Billy Dietrich was second, with Montieth third and Danny Dietrich fourth.

 

J.J. Grasso ran in the top five the entire race and finished fifth, with Jimmy Siegel, Austin Hogue, Robbie Kendall, Alan Krimes, and 19-starting Chase Dietz completing the top ten.

 

“Brandon’s win last week bothered me a little bit, but that’s part of it,” said Rahmer, “I want to thank my parents and Moon (Byers), Stevie (Smith), Keith…all the guys that help. It’s pretty awesome!”

 

Heats for the 31 410’s were won by Hogue, Siegel, and Wagaman, with Dietz winning the consolation.

 

Fawn Grove’s Matt Campbell scored his second win of the year in the 20-lap “358” sprint car feature. Campbell drew the pole and led every lap. His win, combined with Doug Hammaker’s third-place finish, closed Campbell to within five points of Hammaker for the 2015 Keiser Aluminum Wheels track title with next week’s race the last points race of the season.

 

Hammaker, who lost a torsion stop on the first lap, claimed the weekend Trail-Way/Lincoln “358” sprint shootout after finishing fourth at Trail-Way Friday night, and held on to the Lincoln points lead by getting around Chandler Leiby for second on lap 11. Kevin Nouse caught Hammaker for the runner-up spot on lap 17.

 

Jeff Halligan came on late to finish fourth, with 12th-starting Adrian Shaffer crossing fifth. Sixth through tenth were Leiby, 16th-starting Jeff Rohrbaugh, Ashley Cappetta, Matt Findley, and 20th-starting Ryan Higgins.

 

Heats for the 24 358 Sprints were won by Findley, Hammaker, and Leiby.

 

The final points tally for the Trail-Way/Lincoln Shootout saw Jeff Rohrbaugh finish second for the two nights, followed by Jeff Halligan, Dwight Leppo, and Mike Bittinger.

 

Scott Dellinger started second, followed polesitter Kenny Edkin the first five laps, took the lead on lap six, and led the rest of the way in the 25-lap super sportsman feature. Third-starting Russ Mitten passed Edkin for second on lap ten and ran there the rest of the way, crossing 1.06 seconds behind the winner.

 

In the final tune-up for the September 19th “Lawrence Chevrolet Sportsman 100,” Edkin settled for third, with Carmen Perigo, Jr. and Frankie Herr rounding out the top five.

 

Heats for the 31 Sportsman were won by Perigo, Bobby Hockenberry, and Chad Smith, with Tom Wyckoff winning the consolation.

BRANDON RAHMER HOLDS OFF MONTIETH TO SCORE FIRST CAREER WIN AT LINCOLN

Ralph Morgan claims first Lincoln win in 358 late models; Kory Sites best of street stocks

 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 8/29/2015 –Another historic night at Lincoln Speedway saw the next generation of Rahmers pull into victory lane, as Brandon Rahmer held off the late-race challenges of Lincoln points leader Brian Montieth to score his first career “410” sprint car win.

 

“I was trying to run my ass off to keep away from them,” said Rahmer when asked whether he knew if Montieth and 12th-starting Danny Dietrich were running second and third behind him, “I kept my speed up top. I didn’t know if Brian had enough to slide up in front of me going into three. That’s how Danny (Dietrich) got me the other two times I was in the front here. But I finally got to stand up here.”

 

“I was lucky enough to draw a good pill and start up front for the feature and it finally paid off,” added Rahmer.

 

Handicapping placed the Rahmer brothers on the outside of the front two rows for the feature. Polesitter Steve Owings took the lead at the outset and led the first two laps, with Freddie dropping back to fifth at outset and Robbie Kendall and Tim Glatfelter moving into third and fourth.

 

Brandon caught Owings for the lead on lap three and led the rest of the way, with plenty of action in behind. Freddie recovered to advance to second after catching Owings on lap eight.

 

As the Rahmer brothers led, tenth-starting Brian Montieth and leading Lincoln feature winner and 12th-starting Danny Dietrich were methodically working their way through the field.

 

Montieth caught Grasso for third on lap 12 and chased down Freddie by the 17th lap. He and Freddie made contact exiting turn four of that lap, pitching Freddie into the outside guardrail on the front stretch and ending Freddie’s night. Also caught up in the crash was fourth-place Grasso and Randy Bachman.

 

Montieth never stopped and assumed second for the restart, with Owings third and Dietrich fourth. One lap later, Dietrich disposed of Owings and made it a three-car race to the checkered.

 

Though he pulled alongside several times, Montieth was never able to get by the Miller Brothers Chevrolet/Wege Pretzels/ARAN Trading #88. Rahmer’s final margin of victory was .53 seconds, with Dietrich a close third, Owings fourth, and Friday night Williams Grove winner Austin Hogue fifth.

 

Rounding out the top ten were 20th-starting Gerard McIntyre, Jr., Kendall, Cory Haas, 19th-starting Alan Krimes, and 22nd-starting Jimmy Siegel.

 

Heats for the 26 410’s were won by Montieth, Kyle Moody, and Kendall, with Krimes winning the consolation.

 

Mt. Union’s Ralph Morgan scored his eighth win of the year in the “358” late model feature event, crossing a convincing 3.53 seconds ahead of Shaun Jones. It was the first career Lincoln win for Morgan, who has already won five races at Hesston and a race each at Hagerstown and Path Valley this year.

 

Gene Knaub was third, with Eric Irvin and Cam Zeigler completing the top five.

 

The event was marred by a 14-car pile-up which blocked the track in turn three of the first lap.

 

Heats for the 26 358 Late Models were won by Morgan, Brad Shank, and Shaun Jones, with Dan Zechman winning the consolation.

 

Kory Sites claimed his first win in five years in the 20-lap street stock feature. Sites, who came out of retirement by running a few events last year, started on the front row and followed polesitter Jason Townsend for the first three laps. He wrestled the lead on lap four and held off Mike Potts over the final 15 laps.

 

Third through fifth were Doug Bennett, Bob Scott, Jr., and Michelle Walls.

 

Heats for the 26 Street Stocks were won by Townsend, Sites, and Bennett.

TODD SHAFFER WINS LINCOLN “LEGENDS OF THE SPORT” FEATURE
(Click on headline link above for full story & results)

DIETRICH CLAIMS $10,000 WINNER TAKE ALL $10,000 IN 410 SHOOTOUT;

Phil Walter holds off Hammaker for 358 sprint car win

 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 8/26/2015 – Technically, it was his sixth Lincoln win and the 197th of his storied career. But Lincoln Speedway and Fred Rahmer Promotions will let it to the pundits as to whether it counts.

 

But for Todd Shaffer, his win in Wednesday night’s “Legends of Central PA Sprint Car Racing” feature event was one that he will cherish for the rest of his days.

 

Second heat winner Kenny Adams of Malibar, Florida drew a zero pill for the inversion and led the first 10 laps of the feature event, losing a sizeable lead over Shaffer and the rest of the field when the competition yellow came out at the half-way point for what many drivers called an “oxygen break.”

 

On the 11th-lap restart, Adams bounced off the outside wall and lost the lead to Shaffer, who led the rest of the way. Adams settled for second, with Kenny Jacobs making a late-race pass to catch Cris Eash, who finished fourth. Keith Kauffman rounded out the top five in an event which featured 12 of the winningest drivers in Central PA history and among Fred Rahmer’s idols that he competed against throughout his career.

 

Qualifiers for the legends were won by the two 88 cars, Shaffer and Adams.

 

Danny Dietrich continued his hot streak by claiming two of the six match races and taking home the winner-take-all $10,000 among the six drivers elected by the fans through on-line voting.

 

Other winners of the five-lap match races were Dale Blaney (2) and Montieth (2).

 

In the end, Dietrich earned 53 points, followed by Lucas Wolfe with 50, Blaney with 48, and Montieth with 44. Greg Hodnett was sidelined in the first set of match races with a broken lifter, and Alan Krimes suffered mechanical problems in the last set of match races, ending both of their nights.

 

 

McClure’s Phil Walter, who raced against all but one of the legends on hand, took care of all the 358 sprinters in winning the 20-lap “358” sprint car feature.

 

Polesitter Cody Fletcher, grandson of one of the mechanics recognized as part of the evening’s festivities (Harry Fletcher), started on the pole and led the first five laps before giving way to fourth-starting Walter.

 

Though he led the rest of the way, he had to hold off the challenges of Central PA point series and Lincoln points leader Doug Hammaker over the second half of the race, taking the checkered .94 seconds in front for the $1,200 win.

 

Matt Campbell, second in Lincoln points, came on strong at the end to finish third, with Adrian Shaffer and Jeff Halligan completing the top five.

 

Heats for the 22 358’s on hand were won by Campbell, Shaffer, and Isaac Sneeringer.

DIETRICH SCORES SIXTH LINCOLN WIN OF THE YEAR IN BAPS NIGHT “410” SPRINTS
(Click on headline link above for full story & results)

Bill Stine claims first career win in “358” sprints; Rick Hulson best of All-American Outlaws

 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 8/22/2015 – Not even the highest pill draw and points handicapping can stop Danny Dietrich.

 

In his first Lincoln appearance since competing in the “A” main at the Knoxville Nationals, Dietrich started last in his heat, made the 12-car handicap, started 12th, and drove away to his sixth Lincoln win in the BAPS Night “410” sprint car feature at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

 

“Night in, night out these guys give me a fast car. I couldn’t be any happier,” said Dietrich upon exiting his Gary Kauffman-owned Sandoe’s Fruit Market/Hickory Run Orchards/Weikert’s Livestock #48 in victory lane, “To be sitting here again after going out on the road and picking up where we left off…we’re doing real good.”

 

Despite another masterful run through the field, Dietrich did have one close call as he closed on polesitter and race-long leader Tim Wagaman on the front stretch of lap 14.

 

“We got real lucky here on the front stretch. Zach (Euculano) was off the pace and pulling into the infield. I tried to stay behind him as long as I could just because there was nowhere to go around the top,” said Dietrich, “I didn’t know Cory (Haas) was there, and that was close…closer than I like to be. But these guys that we race with week in and week out are very clean racers, and I can’t thank all of them enough. Being clean on the track means we don’t tear anything up.”

 

Dietrich regrouped and drove around Wagaman exiting turn two of lap 15. From there, he checked out on the field, crossing 3.09 seconds in front of seventh-starting Haas.

 

Brandon Rahmer started second, ran second the first 12 laps, dropped to fourth with ten to go, and fought back to a well-earned third-place finish. Alan Krimes and Gerard McIntyre, Jr. completed the top five. Wagaman settled for sixth, followed by Brian Montieth, who came from the rear of the field following a second lap spin. Eighth and ninth were the BAPS cars of Brent Marks, 18th-starting Austin Hogue, and Kyle Moody.

 

BAPS Auto Paints & Supply provided $300 bonuses to the two sprint car winners, and added $200 to the second-place finisher and $100 to the third-place finisher in each sprint division. Fundraising efforts during BAPS two nights of 2015 Lincoln racing resulted in $7,000 for Olivia’s House in York.

 

Heats for the 27 410’s on hand were won by Brandon Rahmer, Jim Siegel, and Moody, with Scott Fisher winning the consolation.

 

Bill Stine started on the pole and led every lap of the “358” sprint car feature for his first career division win, despite losing the lead for a portion of a lap and reclaiming the lead from eighth-starting Adrian Shaffer, who chased the winner from lap four on.

 

Third through fifth were Lincoln point leader Doug Hammaker (who started 12th), Kevin Nouse, and Cole Young. Sixth through tenth were Matt Campbell (sporting a #31 to wing in remembrance of Jimmy Campbell), Tyler Esh, Ryan Higgins, Cody Fletcher, and Jeff Rohrbaugh (who came from the rear twice in multi-car crashes, the last one on lap eight).

 

Heats for the 29 358’s on hand were won by Campbell, Stine, and Nouse, with Lucas Montgomery winning the consolation.

ABREU ADDS LINCOLN TO HIS WIN LIST IN USAC/ARDC MIDGETS
(Click on headline link above for full story & results)

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.
