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

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.

 

Glen Bernie, Maryland’s Rick Hulson led flag-to-flag in the 20-lap All-American Outlaw feature, holding off Fred Cullum the entire way and crossed .97 seconds behind the winner. The victory ended a five-race win streak for teammate Kurt Zimmerman, who came from 11th starting spot to finish third. Fourth and fifth were Randy Doty and Justin Cullum.

 

Heats for the 17 All American Outlaws on hand were won by Zimmerman and Hulson.

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.
