Rain-out gives Hammaker first Lincoln 358 sprint point title;
358 Championship event to be rescheduled; date to be announced

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA , 9/12/09 - After running in the track three times, Lincoln gave up and threw in the towel Saturday night, postponing its annual 358 Sprint Car Championship event to a date to be determined.

Track master Fred Putney had the track just about ready to go when the first of three rainfalls struck the track shortly before 5:30 p.m. Putney and his crew went back to work, running in the track a second time, and then did it again after a second rainfall arrived at about 6:45 p.m.

Officials were about ready to tell the sprint cars drivers to buckle up for heat in the motors when rain again drenched the track at 8:15, forcing promoters Bob and Don Leiby and Alan Kreitzer to cancel the evening’s racing program.

Forty-seven "358" sprint cars, 32 Central PA Legends cars, and 20 thundercars were in the pits.

Officials had already reduced time trials to a single lap before the program was cancelled.

Though the "358" Championship will be rescheduled at a date to be announced, the rain gave Grantville’s Dale Hammaker his first-ever Lincoln track title by 165 points over Glenndon Forsythe, with defending track champ Jeff Rohrbaugh finishing third in points, 180 behind Hammaker.

With all big shows remaining, promoters were unsure whether the Legends could be rescheduled.

An announcement regarding the date of the 358 championship event will be made later this week.

Next Saturday night, September 12th, Lincoln Speedway will host the 35th running of the prestigious "Lawrence Chevrolet Sportsman 100." Street Stocks and Thundercars will round out the evening’s racing action which will get underway with sportsman time trials at 7 PM. Gates will open at 5 PM, with hot laps getting underway around 6:30 PM.
