MONTIETH CLAIMS THIRD STRAIGHT TRACK CHAMPIONSHIP
(Click on headline link above for full story)
Logan Schuchart Claims First Career Lincoln 358 Sprint Title;
Gino Comi also a first-time champ in Thundercars;
Gene Knaub Claims Third Straight 358 Late Model Championship

YORK, PA, 11/20/10 - Lincoln Speedway track champions and special year-end awards were handed out at the Holiday Inn in York Saturday night, November 20th. Close to 400 people were in attendance to watch the crowning of the 410 sprint, 358 sprint, thundercar, and 358 late model champions for 2010. The top finishers in the season -long point series for all four divisions were honored as well as special awards.

MONTIETH CLAIMS THIRD STRAIGHT LAWRENCE CHEVROLET TRACK CHAMPIONSHIP

It was another banner year for Phoenxville’s Brian Montieth, whose four wins included the Lincoln Spring Championship, Lincoln’s 58th Anniversary show, and a win in one of the two All-Star shows en route to his third straight Lawrence Chevrolet 410 Sprint Track Championship.

The driver known as "the Edge" dominated with 107 feature laps led during the season. And his four wins bumped him up to 15th on the all-time Lincoln career win list with legends Bud Folkenroth and Bobby Hersh at 20.

In 25 events, Montieth amassed 20 top-10 and 16 top-five finishes to go along with his four wins.

Montieth’s third title also placed him alongside Bobby Allen, Bobby Abel, and Kenny Weld as former three-time track champs. Only Fred Rahmer (10) and Steve Smith (9) have more track championships.

It was also car owner Jerry Parrish’s third track championship as well as sponsors Premiere Auto Works and Auto Locator. Montieth’s title also secured chief wrench Scott Zellers his third Mechanic of the Year award, too.

The Most improved driver of 2010, Myerstown’s Brent Marks, not only picked up his first career win, but two wins on the season to finish second in season points. He finished in the top ten 16 times and the top five seven times on the year.

Denver’s Alan Krimes actually had more top fives (17) and top tens (21) than any other driver at Lincoln during 2010. He scored two season wins and finished third in the final championship point standings, just 20 points behind Marks.

It was his third straight top three finish in season points. Krimes was in the hunt for the coveted track title all year long and earned his second straight Sportsmanship Award winner for his on-and-off track efforts.

10-time track champion Fred Rahmer of Salfordville made some noise too in 2010 as he won two back-to-back races early in the season (including the first All-Star race) to up his all-time win leader total to 166 wins. In all, Rahmer recorded 15 top-10 finishes along with eight top-fives en route to his fourth place finish in the final point standings.

For a second straight year, New Oxford’s Brian Leppo finished fifth in points on the heels of five top-fives and 13 top-10 finishes. Leppo’s lone win came on the second race of the year March 27th.

Though he didn’t score a win in 2010, York’s Johnny Mackison completed a solid year by scoring two top five and 12 top ten finishes en route to a sixth-place finish in the point standings.

Completing the top ten in season points were Danny Dietrich (1win), rookie-of-the year Brad McClelland, Jimmy Siegel, and Cory Haas (1 win).

Other Lincoln wins in 2010 were recorded by former track champ Lance Dewease (with four wins on a limited appearance schedule and a new 20-lap track record on August 28th), Mark Smith (with two wins, including first career Lincoln win in the Icebreaker 30 to open the season and opening night of PA Speedweek), Doug Esh, Greg Hodnett (season finale), and first-time career winners Aaron Ott, Daryn Pittman, John Rudisill, and Adam Wilt.

All told, there were 15 different winners in 25 races at Lincoln in 2010.

GREG HODNETT CLOSES LINCOLN SEASON WITH A WIN
(Click on headline link above for full story and results)
Gallagher tops thundercar feature and Comi claims first track championship

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA , 10/16/10 - Greg Hodnett wasn’t coming off the top of the speedway in Saturday night’s season finale for 410 Sprint cars at Lincoln Speedway.

And if someone drove by him, Hodnett said they deserved the win.

No one got around Hodnett during the 25-lap feature as he grabbed the lead on lap one and held back three-time defending track champion Brian Montieth for his first win of the season at the track.

"Brian was running real good and was pressuring us pretty good," said Hodnett, who earned $3,000 for the Jim and Sandy Kline owned team. "I was just gonna run up top and if somebody drove by then good for them. It’s pretty much been the top all year when I’ve been here and I know when Lance (Dewease) won Speedweek he said he wasn’t getting off the top for nothing and I pretty much thought the same thing. We started towards the front in the heat and feature and we held on tonight."

Front row starters Tim Glatfelter and Brent Marks tangled on the start of the feature collecting Dewease, Gerard McIntyre and Johnny Mackison.

Hodnett, who originally started third, moved to the front row and grabbed the lead over Montieth and kept Montieth at bay during several yellow flags and two red flags during the first eight laps of the feature.

The first red flag was for Mackison, who rolled his sprinter on lap five and the second red flag displayed on lap eight when Brad McClelland and Josh Wells flipped on the backstretch. Neither driver were injured.

Montieth tried to slide Hodnett on the lap eight restart but Hodnett pulled away as Daryn Pittman, Fred Rahmer and 18th starting Brian Leppo made up the top five.

Hodnett was able to work through lapped traffic on lap 17 but on the final lap, he caught a pack of cars battling for position and nearly had one of the cars spin directly in front of him in turn one.

"I had to run hard because Brian was right there and we got up to the 48 (Danny Dietrich) and he was trying to race a guy and almost got crossed up and turned sideways in front of us," stated Hodnett after his 23rd career Lincoln feature win. "Luckily we got off the gas and we weren’t too tight and rolled around there. But I was figuring Brian would give us a good shot in turn three and four but I never saw him so I guess we were able to get down the backstretch pretty good."

Hodnett, of Thomasville, also the 2010 Williams Grove Speedway track champion scored the win over Montieth, of Phoenixvlle, Owasso, Oklahoma’s Pittman, Salfordville’s Pittman and New Oxford’s Leppo with Mark Smith, Justin Henderson, Cory Haas, Chad Layton and Alan Krimes.

Heats for the 28 "410" Sprints were won by Fred Rahmer, Jim Siegel and Doug Dodson with Danny Dietrich winning the consolation.

Four different leaders ran out front of the season finale for the thundercars as Sam Gallagher came from 12th starting spot to take control on lap 16 and scored his fifth win of the season.

While Gallagher was leading, Gino Comi and Mike Slaybaugh were battling for the track championship both one lap down to the leaders after some early race problems.

Comi finished 11th and claimed his first career Lincoln title.

Hurricane Menges led the first two laps as Kyle Martin led the next three laps before yielding to Duane Watson.

Watson led until lap 16 then Gallagher took the lead and drove to the win over Watson, Travis Beaver, Allan Cullum and Tom Walls.

Danny Beard and Duane Watson were heat race winners for the 20 thundercars.

KRIMES COMPLETES AMAZING COMEBACK WITH MANUFACTURERS NIGHT WIN
(Click on headline link above for full story and results)
Mike Wagner II takes first Lincoln PASS 305 Checkered

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA , 10/9/10 - Never give up!

Denver’s Alan Krimes thought he lost the race when he got jammed up behind a lapped car on lap nine and watched polesitter Brian Montieth fly by into the lead. But Krimes fought back, and swapped the lead several more times with the three-time track champ before taking control for good on lap 22, and raced to his second Lincoln win of 2010 in a thrilling 25-lap 22nd Annual Hank Gentzler Memorial/Manufacturers Night feature.

"I thought we were done," said Krimes upon exiting his Conestoga Valley Garage/Krimes Racing Engines/Mike’s Powerwash No.87 in victory lane, "I kind of diamonded the corner (turn 4) and got behind the 19H car and he slowed down an awful lot, and then his hands hanging outside the car (signaling he was going to the infield) and I thought, ‘Oh no’, and Montieth drove away."

Krimes, who started outside Montieth on the front row, grabbed the lead following two failed attempts to start the event with Montieth hot on his heels. Following a caution restart on the third lap for a stopped Steve Buckwalter, Krimes, Montieth, third-starting Lance Dewease, fourth-starting Fred Rahmer and sixth-starting Gerard McIntyre, Jr. set a torrid pace and approached lapped traffic on lap nine.

Krimes suddenly found himself behind a slower car, made contact, with Montieth taking advantage of the situation and drove by on the frontstretch.

"I thought that might have been the race there," said Krimes. "But luckily, the lapped cars held him up just enough so I could get close enough to him.

But just when everyone thought Montieth would check out from that point, Krimes got back on the gas and started to close the gap quickly. On the 18th lap ,Krimes slid under Montieth exiting the fourth turn to beat him to the line to complete the lap, just as Brad McClelland stopped in turn two to bring out the caution. At that point, both Greg Hodnett and Brian Leppo pulled into the pits.

On the restart, Rahmer got a run on Dewease and got by to move into third. At that point Montieth made another charge on Krimes to retake the lead on the 19th lap.

But Krimes was not done.

Krimes passed Montieth on the backstretch of the 19th lap and took the high-line away from Montieth entering turn three. That was just what Krimes needed as he powered off the fourth turn with the lead and held firm the remaining laps to take the checkered 1.10-seconds ahead of Montieth for his eighth career Lincoln win.

"Finally we got the better end of a caution there and I just had him at the line when that yellow came out," Krimes said, "That put me back in front of him, and what can you say after that. "I don’t know that there’s anyone more fun to race with that Brian, to tell you the truth," added Krimes, "He gave me plenty of room and I gave him plenty of room...and it was who came out with the fastest car and luckily, I held him off. After that last restart, it was just an all-out battle there."

Rahmer held on to third, with Dewease fourth, and McIntyre fifth.

Completing the top-10 were Chad Layton, Justin Henderson, 21st-starting Adam Wilt, 22nd-starting Danny Dietrich, and Mark Smith.

DEWEASE CLAIMS THIRD KENNY WELD MEMORIAL WIN AT LINCOLN
(Click on headline link above for full story and results)
Gallagher wins fourth of the year in thundercars; Slaybaugh, Comi tied for points lead with one race to go

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA , 9/25/10 - Lance Dewease added another notch to his ‘big win’ belt by claiming his third Kenny Weld Memorial at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

"The first lap don’t pay nothin’, and the last lap pays everything," said Dewease upon exiting his Don and Lisa Owens-owned Advanced Development Services/Hank’s Performance Products/Catoctin Development #30C in victory lane, "It doesn’t matter if it takes you 10 laps or 39 laps to get there...as long as you lead the last lap, that’s all that matters."

"This race is run in honor of a very special guy. He was probably one of the brightest guys ever in racing," continued Dewease, "Anyone who doesn’t know about Kenny Weld, you ought to google him. He’s unbelievable in the things he invented and the stuff he has done, and it’s an honor to win his race."

Dewease’s fourth Lincoln win of the year and the 36th of his Lincoln career was worth $5,000 plus lap money.

Though his team is well know for setting the car up for the end, it didn’t look like he’d be a factor in the early-going.

An eight-car inversion put Dewease on the outside of row three for the start. He passed Aaron Ott for fifth on lap two, but ran fifth the next eight laps before Ott reclaimed the spot following a 10th-lap restart.

As polesitter Greg Hodnett was leading over Chad Layton and Alan Krimes, Dewease continued to run sixth for the next nine laps before passing Ott for the fifth spot again on lap 19.

In front of him, fifth-starting Brian Leppo was having a good run of his own, passing both Krimes and Layton for second in one bold high-side move through turns three and four following a 16th-lap restart.

The 16th-lap caution was brought out by three-time track champ Brian Montieth, sporting the Weld Wheels #91 top wing in memory of Kenny Weld, who spun in turn two.

"We’ve had a pretty good car all year here at about lap 20," continued Dewease, "At the beginning I wasn’t sure we were even gonna go anywhere. We just weren’t real good there...we were a little tight, and with that dirty air behind them guys I couldn’t get momentum going. Every time I got to the corner by myself we were alright. There at the beginning, I had to be patient and not do anything dumb."

Dewease kicked in following a 22nd-lap restart, passing Krimes for fourth and then disposing of both Chad Layton and Leppo to move from fourth to second just before the caution came out Justin Henderson, who came to a stop with a broken axle in turns three and four of lap 24. The lap didn’t count, but because he was past the start-finish line, Dewease’s passes did.

Dewease made quick work of leader Hodnett on the restart, pulling the slider in turns three and four to take to lead.

After that, it was all Lance, as he crossed .94 seconds ahead of Hodnett, with Layton, Krimes, and Daryn Pittman completing the top five. Sixth through tenth were Cory Haas, Fred Rahmer, 23rd-starting Johnny Mackison, Jr., and Leppo.

410 Sprint heats were won by Haas, Derek Sell, Tyler Walker, and Montieth, with Rahmer winning the consolation.

Fast time in time trials over the 35-car field was set by Pittman with a one-lap time of 13.220-seconds (102.118 MPH).

HERR MAKES HISTORY BY CLAIMING 5TH “SPORTSMAN 100";
(Click on headline link above for full story & results)
Wagaman sixth winner in six races, Knaub takes title in "358" late models

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA , 9/18/10 - Frankie Herr has proved he can win big races over the years. Saturday night at Lincoln Speedway, Herr left no doubt by becoming the first five-time winner of the prestigious Super Sportsman 100.

Herr inherited the lead on lap 52 when race-leader Carmen Perigo Jr. spun down the front stretch with a flat front tire, and never gave it up from there as he led the final 48 laps to take the checkered 3.94-seconds ahead of Aaron Eichelberger in the annual marathon run.

"I think we can still get ‘er done," boasted Herr upon exiting his No.99 super sportsman in victory lane after 100 long laps, "This is a tough track...but I had a lot of fun and I enjoy these 100-lappers."

And with the win, Herr added his name to the Lawrence Chevrolet Sportsman 100 trophy for the fifth time following his previous wins in 1996, 1997, 2004, and 2008.

Outside frontrow starter Steve Wilbur led the first three laps before polesitter Leroy Martin got by for the lead on lap four. Martin led green and yellow flag laps through lap 14 before third-starting Gregg Foster took over the point.

But Foster’s lead was short-lived, as seventh-starting Perigo drove around the #32 on lap 18.

Perigo looked like the driver to beat as the race approached the half-way point.

Meanwhile, fifth-starting Herr was charging to the front and moved into the runner-up spot on lap 22. He kept pace with Perigo until disaster struck for the leader, whose right front flat tire sent him spinning into the front stretch inside guardrail just beyond the flag stand on lap 52, handing the lead, and ultimately the win, to Herr.

"I came out there at the beginning, and it was a little heavy and I thought ‘It’s going to be a long 100 laps if we’ve got to deal with that.’", said Herr, "My team worked their tails off all night. I told them we needed to be there at the half-way point, and we were pretty close. We had a good game plan."

After the mid-race 10-minute break, sixth-starting Aaron Eichelberger caught 17th-starting Scott Dellinger for the runner up spot on lap 80.

Late in the race, Aaron’s father Rich Eichelberger, a two-time Sportsman 100 winner, passed Dellinger for third with two laps to go, becoming the first father-son team to ever finish in the top three of the same Sportsman 100 event.

"My legs take a beating working the pedals," said Herr on the physical toll of 100 laps. "You wouldn’t think that, but honestly, working the pedals is a chore...but we could roll the middle, top, and bottom, where ever we needed to go. We said before we left the shop we were taking the money tonight...now we’ll party afterwards!"

Dellinger settled for fourth, with 14th-starting Scott Geesey completing the top five. Rounding out the top ten were 24th-starting Russ Mitten, 21st-starting Dave Socks, Mike Enders, 20th-starting Paul Miller, and Bobby Hockenberry.

SHUTTLESWORTH WINS FIRST OF CAREER IN LINCOLN “358" SPRINTS
(Click on headline link above for full story and results)
Logan Schuchart three spots better than the Godfather to claim 2010 track title;
Neiderer wins second of career in thundercars;
Fred Cullum, Geremy Sheaffer take All-American Outlaw, Central PA Legends features

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA , 9/11/10 - It was a night of firsts in the "358" sprint car finale at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

And the night’s action ended with two young guns celebrating in victory lane.

One of them was Chris Shuttlesworth, who out-dueled Steve Owings to claim his first career win.

The other was Logan Schuchart, whose fourth-place finish was three spots better than Dale Hammaker, resulting in his first-ever track title.

It was a fitting 9/11 win for Shuttlesworth, who gave three years of his life to serve in the military after the terrorist attacks nine years ago.

"September 11th means a lot to me," said Shuttlesworth in victory lane, "I served three years in the United State Army because of September 11th. I just to thank my brothers and sisters who have fought for this great country. I sacrificed three years, and it hurt my racing career, but I’d do it again tomorrow."

Shuttlesworth started on the pole and led the first 11 laps before fifth-starting Steve Owings grabbed the lead on a 12th-lap restart. Owings was scored as the leader the next six laps before Shuttlesworth reclaimed the lead on lap 18, one lap after the event’s final caution.

Shuttlesworth, driving the Jim Strausbaugh, Jr. #50, powered away to a 1.2-second win over Owings. It was Jim Stausbaugh, Jr. and Jim Strausbaugh, Sr.’s first win together as a team.

"That guy in that #35 car...Steve Owings...I haven’t really raced with him very much, but he’s one hell-of-a race car driver," said Shuttlesworth describing the race for the win, "He bounced off the wall down there in turn one and I did something that I preach to everyone else...you don’t follow the car in front of you. So I bounced off the wall, too. But he left me enough room to sneak on by him."

Although the race boiled down to Shuttlesworth and Owings, the race within the race was for the 2010 track championship. Logan Schuchart and Dale Hammaker entered the feature tied in season-long points.

Schuchart made the handicapped inversion through his heat and started 11th. Defending track champ Hammaker qualified through one of two consolation events and started 19th. Though he advanced to seventh at the end, Hammaker was still three spots behind Schuchart’s fourth-place finish.

For Schuchart, grandson of legendary sprint car driver Bobby Allen, it was his first Lincoln track title.

"I actually thought we might get a shot at it (the win) there at the end. Everyone just kept saying ‘Keep you’re head in it; don’t let the championship thing mess you up," said Schuchart upon entering victory lane to be recognized as the track champ, "I just came into it treating it like a regular race, and that’s what we had to do. This championship is great!"

John Barnett started third and raced with tenth-starting Glenndon Forsythe most of the way before finishing there. Schuchart grabbed fourth from Forsythe after the final 17th-lap restart, with Forsythe settling for fifth. Sixth through tenth were Ted Thomas, Jr., Hammaker, Tim Wagaman, 24th-starting Tim Berkheimer, and 17th-starting Brad McClelland.

Heats for the 40 "358" sprinters were won by Shuttlesworth, Mike Bittinger, Thomas, and Steve Storrie. Twin consolations were won by McClelland and Cris Eash.

MONTIETH NAILS DOWN 2010 TRACK TITLE WITH FOURTH LINCOLN WIN
(Click on headline link above for full story and results)
Travis Beaver wins career first in "358" late models; Duaine Smith wins tune-up for Sportsman 100

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA , 9/4/10 - There’s nothing like winning on your sponsor’s night. Especially when you nail down a third straight track title.

Brian Montieth left no doubt who the best was at Lincoln Speedway in 2010 by coming from his 12th starting spot to chase down polesitter and race-long leader Derek Sell, pass him for the lead on a 11th-lap restart, and then pull away from the field to pick up his fourth win of the year in the 25-lap 410 Sprint feature.

With the win, Montieth nailed down his third-straight track championship and joined some elite company by joining legendary drivers Bobby Allen (67, 69, 70), Bobby Abel (60, 65, 66) and Kenny Weld (68, 70, 71) with three track championships.

The win, Montieth’s 20th of his career at Lincoln, also moved him into a tie for 15th on the all-time win list with Bud Folkenroth and Bobby Hersh.

"I can’t complain about this thing," said Montieth in victory lane, "Scott (Zellers), Todd, and Craig work on this thing every week and Jerry (Parrish) gives them everything whatever they need to keep this thing up front. There are so many people to thank...XXX (chassis), obviously Bricker’s French Fries, the Beer Hill Gang, everybody at Premier, the Penske Shocks that we’ve been on the last couple of weeks...it’s a tough crowd here at Lincoln. It’s fortunately I can sit in this thing and get it to go."

"I’ve got respect for everybody else out there," continued Montieth when reminded of the respect that the other drivers have shown for him, "We’re going good right now, but on any given night, you can turn this around. We struggled last night, and that just goes to show that every race is its own entity. I just keep trying."

Sell led from the outset with outside frontrow starter ed Aikin giving chase over the first nine non-stop laps.

But Montieth was on the move. The Phoenixville racer moved into the top-five by lap four. He passed Chad Criswell on the sixth lap for fourth, drove around Pat Cooper on lap nine to move into third, and got by Aikin on lap 10 to move into the runner-up spot.

That’s when a caution came out for a spinning Josh Wells in turn four, putting the Premier Auto Works/Auto Locator #21 on the back bumper of the TheDirtShop.com #20s.

Sell’s lead didn’t last much longer. Montieth drove around Sell in the first two turns after the restart, and only two cautions and a red kept the field in the same zip code.

Tim Glatfelter got backwards and collected Brian Leppo on lap 17, Fred Rahmer lost steering and spun entering turn one of lap 22, and then an eight-car melee on turn one of the 23rd-lap restart brought out the event’s only red. There were no injuries in the crash.

Montieth pulled away from the field over the last three laps to cross 2.93 seconds ahead of 13th-starting Alan Krimes, with Brad McClelland, Sells, and 16th-starting Brent Marks completing the top five.

"Everybody was saying that it was designed for us to win on our night," said car owner Jerry Parrish, "We come here to win EVERY night. Everybody sitting in the seats watched that move (for the lead) down here (turn four) where he stuck between that car and the wall, and we’re talking going between the wall and a car that doesn’t have as much experience...and trust in that. That just takes nerve, that’s all him."

Sixth through tenth were Danny Dietrich, Cory Haas, Jimmy Siegel, Aikin, and Pat Cooper.

Heats for the 22 "410" sprinters were won by Sell, Glatfelter, and Chad Criswell.

RUDISILL SCORES FIRST CAREER WIN, DEWEASE SETS NEW TRACK RECORD IN LINCOLN TWIN 20'S
(Click on headline link above for full story and results)
Mario Page wins first SpeedSTR race ever held in Pigeon Hills;
Kyle Martin becomes the night’s second first-career winner in Thundercars

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA , 8/28/10 - John Rudisill thrilled the crowd by holding off Danny Dietrich and Brian Montieth for his first career win, and Lance Dewease pulled the slider to pass Aaron Ott with the white flag waving to set a new track record in the Twin 20's for "410" sprint cars at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

There was no shortage of action in either feature event.

Though the Rudisill Trucking & Excavating/Caskey Printing/Rife’s Racing Collectibles #4 started on the pole and led every lap of the first 20-lap feature, two red flags, including one on the 19th-lap, kept a competitive field close throughout.

The first red flag came out for a front stretch flip involving Mark Smith and Kevin Nagy, who got together while racing for fifth. Both drivers were uninjured, but done for the night.

The second red flag came out in turn two of lap 19, when Brent Marks caught the back side of Brad McClelland while racing for second, slid up the race track, and collected the #51 of Fred Rahmer, who tipped onto his side. In this case, both drivers were able to continue (Rahmer with a damaged top wing), but the red put McClelland, 20th-starting Brian Montieth, and 17th-starting Danny Dietrich on Rudisill’s tail for the final restart.

The mad two-lap dash to the finish saw both Montieth and Dietrich get by McClelland on lap 19 and Dietrich pass Montieth for the runner-up spot on the final lap.

But through it all, Rudisill ran a flawless race to cross .69 seconds ahead of Dietrich, with Montieth, McClelland, and tenth-starting Johnny Mackison, Jr. completing the top five. Sixth through tenth were 16th-starting Lance Dewease, Tim Glatfelter, 23rd-starting Aaron Ott, 15th-starting Josh Wells, and 21st-starting Brian Leppo.

"I was loose, and I was hanging on for dear life," said a jubilant Rudisill in victory lane, "I tried to get it up on the curb and run it up there...either ballpark it or bring it into victory lane!"

"We bought this car from Daryn Pittman," added Rudisill, "It was an old Titan car from the World of Outlaws."

"My goal was just to get a win at Williams Grove or Lincoln," continued Rudisill, "It’s amazing how much support we get from the fans. Without them, we wouldn’t be here."

Rudisill’s selection of the number "8" pill for the inversion put Aaron Ott on the pole and Lance Dewease on the inside of row two for the second 20-lapper.

Ott, who actually got undressed and thought he was done for the night after a crash in his qualifying event, led the first 18 laps before Dewease pulled the "flyer" in turns three and four as the pair came down to take the white flag.

Dewease led the final two laps to pick up his third win of the year and 35th of his career in the Pigeon Hills, establishing a 20-lap track record of 5:37.346 and crossing .88 seconds ahead of Ott.

"We’re set up for late in races and these 20-lappers are not that long of a race for us," said Dewease after exiting his Advanced Development Services Don Owens #30C, "But we got rolling in the middle there in one and two at the end, and got runs on Aaron. We kept giving him a slider but I kept giving him room, and finally he came down a little going into three, so we could get by him there."

Brian Montieth, Danny Dietrich, and Brent Marks completed the top five. Sixth through tenth were 14th-starting Alan Krimes, Michael Carber, McClelland, Tim Glatfelter, and Mackison.

Heats for the 23 "410" sprinters were won by Rudisill, Pat Cooper, and Kevin Nagy.

MONTIETH EDGES DEWEASE IN LINCOLN 58TH ANNIVERSARY THRILLER

Boland drives away from field in "358" sprint car feature

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA , 8/21/10 - Brian Montieth has made a habit of winning 410 sprint car thrillers. But his win in Saturday night’s John Gleim, Jr. Excavating Night 58th Anniversary show at Lincoln Speedway might have been his most thrilling of all.

In spectacular fashion, Montieth watched 14th-starting Lance Dewease pull a slider to briefly take the race lead in the final turns, then out-muscled the Fayetteville star off turn four to win the race to the checkered.

"Lance has been tough here when it gets dry and slick," said Montieth in victory lane, "I knew he was going to take a shot and I was just hoping I could get enough run to come down the hill and get in front of him."

Montieth’s third Lincoln win of the year, his second of the weekend (Friday night at Williams Grove)a, was worth $5,800 for the special 30-lap event.

At first, it looked like Stevie Smith would be the man to beat. He started on the pole and led the first 15 laps before second-starting Montieth went to the "edge" to catch him in lapped traffic on turns three and four of lap 16. Montieth then began pulling away from the field, and had a lead of more than three seconds over Smith with five laps to go.

"Unfortunately, when you’re in traffic, second is where you want to be," said Montieth, "Stevie tried to do what he had to do to try to pass through lapped traffic. But when you run second, you can take the line the leader doesn’t."

Meanwhile, Dewease was mounting his charge to the front, passing Smith for the runner-up spot with one lap to go.

While heading into turn three for the final turns to the checkered, leader Montieth clipped the slower car of Gerard McIntyre, Jr., sending McIntyre spinning and forcing Montieth into a one-lap dash to the checkered.

"Ah...lapped traffic here is really tough on us," said Montieth, "It’s so slick and there’s no too much of a bottom groove to keep momentum up, so it was just one of those deals."

McIntyre came to a stop after his spin and collected the fourth and fifth-place cars of Greg Hodnett and Daryn Pittman respectively. Pittman suffered an injury to his right arm, and transported himself to a Harrisburg hospital for treatment.

When the final lap began, Dewease stayed on Montieth’s bumper up the back stretch and slid up in front of the Premier Auto Works/Auto Locator #21 through turns three and four. But Montieth prevailed down the home stretch to pick up the lucrative win, the 19th of his Lincoln career.

Dewease settled for a close second, with Smith crossing third and Alan Krimes and Tyler Walker completing the top five. Sixth through tenth were 23rd-starting Johnny Mackison, Jr., Aaron Ott, Justin Henderson, Fred Rahmer, and Brent Marks.

BRENT MARKS WIRES FIELD FOR SECOND CAREER WIN

Curt Michael Wins 43rd career URC Feature

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA , 8/14/10 - Brent Marks used the luck of the draw and a fast race car to drive to his second career 25-lap 410 Sprint car feature win Saturday night at Lincoln Speedway.

The young Myerstown racer drew the pole position for the feature and kept the top guns at bay, leading all 25 laps of the feature.

"It's about time I got to start up front," said Marks, who pilots a family owned No. 19M sprinter. "I've had no luck at starting up front but tonight we did and had a good run. We stuck to our normal game and it worked out great for us tonight."

Cory Haas challenged Marks in heavy traffic during the first half of the feature as Brian Montieth started 12th and was marching his way to the front.

Montieth moved into the top five on lap 10 and had just got around Brian Leppo for fourth when he ran into the rear of a lapped car and spun in turn one to bring out the caution flag.

Marks continued to set the pace with Haas a close second.

Haas good run ended on lap 14 when he spun out in turn two. Leppo challenged Marks for a couple of laps before Mark Smith got around him for the runner up spot on lap 20.

Marks had checked out from the field when Smith took second place and easily scored the win, his first of the season. Marks ability to work through heavy traffic aided in his $3,000 payday.

"That’s one of the reasons why we chose Lincoln as our home track is because I’ve always felt comfortable in lapped traffic in all of the other divisions that I’ve raced," Marks stated. "Once I got used to this car and the speed, it’s a lot easier to get through the traffic here. The car sticks that I don’t have to worry about crashing it."

Drivers received 100 show up points only for the night due to several Lincoln regulars competing at the Knoxville Nationals and Marks would have benefitted had the race been a points show.

"I really needed this to be a points race tonight, especially with Brian’s bad luck," he said.

We need to catch him and tonight would have helped. But well have to keep after it the rest of the season. Marks will have three more points shows to make his bid for his first career title.

Mark Smith was second over Alan Krimes, Brian Leppo and 16th starting Jim Siegel with Danny Dietrich, Brad McClelland, Montieth, Michael Carber and Gerard McIntyre, Jr. completing the top 10 finishers.
