DIETRICH INHERITS LEAD, CLAIMS WIN IN LINCOLN 410 SPRINT CAR SEASON FINALE

(Click on headline link above for full story & results)
Dwight Leppo claims first Lincoln win in 358 sprints; Harlon Leppo wins for retiring cousin Brian in Central PA Legends;
Randy Doty takes All-American Outlaw main 

10/11/2014, ABBOTTSTOWN, PA –Danny Dietrich found himself the leader when Brian Montieth and Glenndon Forsythe crashed into lapped cars on the fifth lap and held off repeated challenges of rookie Austin Hogue over the next 20 laps to score his fifth win of the year in the season finale at Lincoln Speedway on Saturday night.

 

“It was a crazy race,” said Dietrich after scoring his third win in the last four Lincoln races in the Sandoe’s Fruit Market/Hickory Run Orchards/Weikert’s Livestock #48, “My brakes were so hot from running so hard.  My hat’s off to Austin.  He drove a hell-of-a race and kept pressure on me the whole time.  That’s impressive for a kid in his first year of 410 racing on a track like this.  This is a pretty tough track to be good on.  He raced me real clean.”

 

A redraw for the feature placed Dietrich fourth for the start.  Outside front-row starter Glenndon Forsythe held off polesitter Brian Montieth over the first three laps.  Montieth took the lead on lap four, but then disaster struck for the two leaders when spinning lapped traffic led to a Montieth flip and Forsythe spin in turn four.

 

Dietrich, who running third at the time, inherited the lead and paced the field the rest of the way, but Hogue gave him everything he could handle through heavy lapped traffic.

 

“That one lap I got into (turn) one there, and I decided to go to the top at the last minute and he was on the outside of me,” said Dietrich, “I thought ‘Oh, man.’ I had a really had a hard time pitching my car down and I was going his direction.  He did a good job moving a little bit and I did a good job of trying to keep the car down.  There were a couple of moments there that I’m not sure how we made it through.  Lapped traffic was tough tonight.  It’s unfortunate for the 2W and the 21.  There were pretty fast.  I wasn’t up on the wheel yet, but those two definitely had good cars there, and it a shame for them.”

 

The last laps of the race were run with Hogue on Dietrich’s back bumper behind heavy lapped traffic racing for position.

The margin of victory for Dietrich’s 23rd career Lincoln win was a scant .65 seconds.

 

Third through fifth were eighth-starting Cory Haas, 2014 track champ Alan Krimes (who came from 12th starting spot), and Matt Boland.  Sixth through tenth were Adam Wilt, Jim Siegel, 14th-starting Tyler Ross, John Rudisill, and 18th-starting Kevin Nagy.

 

Rookie Brandon Rahmer was uninjured in a spectacular opening lap flip up the back stretch while battling a pack of cars, eventually landing on the outside guardrail after damaging the Prospect Auto Parts billboard.

 

410 Sprint heats were won by Boland, Nicole Bower, and Wilt, with 358 point series champ Chase Dietz winning the consolation.

 

The 20-lap “358” sprint thriller saw 305 sprint car veteran John Braim lead every lap until he was caught by Dwight Leppo coming off the final turn.  For Leppo, it was his first career Lincoln win, not counting his big wheel race victory several years ago as a kid. 

 

Leppo started on the pole and chased Braim the entire way before making the race-winning pass and crossing a half car-length ahead of Braim at the end. 

 

Third through fifth were ninth-starting Matt Campbell, seventh-starting Brad McClelland, and lady driver Brie Hershey.

 

358 Sprint heats were won by Jason Schultz, Kevin Nouse, and McClelland.  Nouse dropped from the feature field while running third early in the race.

 

Harlon Leppo recognized the sprint car career of his retiring cousin Brian by changing the number of his car to 71 and then going on to win the 15-lap Central PA Legends feature.

 

Leppo started sixth and wrestled the lead from Lucas Montgomery in the first two turns of the final lap to claim the win in the non-stop event (timed at 5 minutes, 4.53 seconds).

 

Montgomery settled for second in a race that saw three different leaders in the first three laps.  Polesitter Travis McClelland led the first lap, followed by third-starting Chris McKinney on lap two, and then fifth-starting Montgomery, who led until the final lap.

 

Third through fifth were Jason Rochelle, McKinney, and Bill Diehl.

 

Legend heats were won by Leppo, Montgomery, and Bob Stough, with Tim Henry winning the consolation.

 

Randy Doty led every lap of the non-stop 25-lap All-American Outlaw feature, crossing in 8 minutes, 15.56 seconds.

Justin Cullum, Brian Green, Dylan Keim, and Rick Hulson (who started 17th) completed the top five.

INAUGURAL LINCOLN “DIRT CLASSIC PRESENTED BY KASEY KAHNE” GOES TO STEVIE SMITH
(Click on headline link above for full story and results)

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 9/27/14 – Stevie Smith has had a number of memorable wins at Lincoln Speedway. His first career World of Outlaws win was in the Pigeon Hills. His first track title was in the Pigeon Hills. His most recent World of Outlaws win was in the Pigeon Hills. And now his name will stand for all-time as the first winner of the “Dirt Classic Presented by Kasey Kahne.

 

A unique qualifying format which required the drivers to gather points for time trials and a pair of heat races put Smith on the pole for the 40-lap, $20,000-to-win Classic. He followed outside front row starter Lance Dewease for one lap before making the race-winning pass in the first two turns of lap two. From there, he held off Dewease and the rest of the field through heavy lapped traffic over the second half of the race to score his second win of the year and 26th career win the Pigeon Hills.

 

“It’s the position they put me in,” said Smith upon exiting his Fred Rahmer and David Pritchard-owned, Miller Brothers Chevrolet/A.R.A.N. Limited #51s in victory lane, “Fred, Moon (Byers), Freddie, and Dave…all the sponsors…they put me here. I’m having a hell-of-a-time doing it. It’s been fun.”

 

In addition to the all-time Lincoln record $20,000 top prize, the driver and owner each received specially designed giant plates produced by Moose Blocks.

 

“I want to see if Fred wants to trade me $20,000 for this plaque,” quipped Smith, “But he had three cars out here tonight, and he needs about $40,000!”

 

Smith had a comfortable 1.85-second lead with ten laps to go, but it quickly evaporated as Dewease closed onto his back bumper when the two heavy lapped traffic with eight to go. Third-place Shane Stewart (driving the Kyle Larson/Justin Marks #2) and fourth-place Alan Krimes were the others to close on the battle for the lead, as Smith tried to safely navigate the lapped traffic in the waning laps.

 

Those four crossed nearly nose-to-tail at the finish, with Smith’s margin of victory a scant quarter of-a-second. Central PA Point Series champ Greg Hodnett finished fifth, with All-Star points champion Dale Blaney, Danny Dietrich, NASCAR star Dave Blaney, and rookies Austin Hogue and Tim Wagaman (who started 17th) completing the top ten.

 

Brent Marks came from 21st after an engine fire in his first heat to win his second heat and finish 11th in the feature.

 

“I’m really happy to be a part of this deal, and we’re going to focus now on Williams Grove (next week’s National Open),” said Smith, “This win means a lot. Of course, Fred’s the all-time winner here, and my dad’s right there, and I’m a lot of wins behind them. They’re the best drivers ever to come to this track. But we took $20,000 out of here. I want to thank Kasey Kahne and Jarrod and Shannon Adams (Kasey’s sister and brother-in-law) for all their work on putting this together. And I want to thank Lincoln Speedway, Alan Kreitzer and the Leibys. The Leibys have done a lot for me and my racing career, and they helped me get here, too.

 

Coming from NASCAR competition to Lincoln with Kahne was Kyle Larson, both of which addressed the record-setting crowd during course of the evening. 1st Round Heats were won by Dewease, Stevie Smith, Dave Blaney, Gerard McIntyre, Jr., and Danny Dietrich. 2nd Round Heats were won by Adam Wilt, Hodnett, Steve Owings, Marks, and Stewart. C-Main was won by Brian Carber and the B-Main was won by Marks. Fast time in time trials over the 52-car field was set by Dewease with one-lap time of 13.329-seconds (101.283 mph).

 

Lincoln will remain dark next Saturday (10/4), as Williams Grove runs its annual National Open, and then return to action for its final show of the season on Saturday, October 11th. The event will include the 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints & Central PA Legends, with the All-American Outlaws added as a fourth division in a feature-only program for them. Gates open at 4:00 PM, with the first green flag waving at 6:00 PM.
