MONTIETH CLAIMS FOURTH STRAIGHT TRACK CHAMPIONSHIP
(Click on headline link above for full story)
Jeff Rohrbaugh Claims Second Career Lincoln 358 Sprint Title;
Sam Gallagher also a second-time champ in Thundercars;
Gene Knaub Claims Fourth 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 19th. More than 200 people were in attendance to watch the crowning of the 410 sprint, 358 sprint, thundercar, and 358 late model champions for 2011. The top finishers in the season-long point series for all four divisions were honored as well as special awards.

 

MONTIETH CLAIMS FOURTH STRAIGHT LAWRENCE CHEVROLET TRACK CHAMPIONSHIP

It was another banner year for Phoenixville’s Brian Montieth, whose six wins included the season-opening “Icebreaker 30,” the Lincoln Keystone Cup Series event, the 8th Annual Weldon Sterner Memorial, the Hank Gentzler Memorial Manufacturers Race, and the annual Kenny Weld/Hilly Rife Memorial race en route to his fourth straight Lawrence Chevrolet 410 Sprint Track Championship.

 

The driver known as “the Edge” dominated with 102 feature laps led during the season. And his six wins bumped him up to 10th on the all-time Lincoln career win list (within two of Van May on the Lincoln career win list with 26 wins).

 

In 26 events, Montieth amassed 19 top-10 and 12 top-five finishes to go along with his six wins.

 

Only Fred Rahmer (10) and Steve Smith (9) have more track championships.

 

It was also the fourth track title for car owner Jerry Parrish and sponsors Premiere Auto Works and Auto Locator. Montieth’s title also secured chief wrench Scott Zellers his fourth Mechanic of the Year award.

 

Danny Dietrich was the second winningest driver and nailed down second in season points in the Gary Kauffman-owned Sandoe’s Fruit Market #48.  Among Dietrich’s four wins were the All-Star Circuit of Champions show on June 11th and a win in the final race of the year, the second of twin 20’s on Lincoln’s 59th Anniversary show.

 

Dietrich finished a slim 20 points behind Montieth in a points chase that went down the final lap of the final points race of the year.  Dietrich scored 14 top-five and 18 top-ten finishes during the year.

 

New Oxford’s Brian Leppo had another great year, finishing third in points on the strength of two wins, ten top-fives and 17 top-10 finishes. Leppo’s wins included the Lincoln Spring Championship event in April.

 

Denver’s Alan Krimes scored one win, seven top-fives and 17 top-tens to finish fourth in season points.

 

Brad McClelland followed up his 2010 national sprint car rookie of-the-year honors with the 2011 most improved driver award after his fifth-place finish in season points. McClelland picked up his first career 410 sprint car win at Lincoln on Premier Auto Works/Auto Locator night July 24th.  His sophomore season included six top-five and 12 top-ten finishes.

 

Completing the top ten in season points were Jimmy Siegel (1 win), Cory Haas (2 wins), Sportsmanship Award winner Brent Marks (2 wins), Aaron Ott (1 win), and winless Adam Wilt.

 

Other Lincoln wins in 2011 were recorded by Greg Hodnett (2 wins), Bill Stine (first time career win), Gerard McIntyre, Jr., Mike Bittinger, and Doug Esh.

 

All told, there were 14 different winners in 26 races at Lincoln in 2011.

 

Second-generation driver Chad Criswell, who finished the season 13th in points, was recognized as Lincoln’s 2011 rookie of-the-year.

GREG HODNETT AND DANNY DIETRICH SPLIT TWIN 20s
(Click on headline link above for full story & results)
Tim Henry wins Central PA Legends Main

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA , 10/21/11 - Greg Hodnett and Danny Dietrich ended the 2011 racing season at Lincoln Speedway by capturing the Twin 20’s for 410 Sprint cars on John Gleim, Jr. Excavating 59th Anniversary Night on Friday night

 

Hodnett’s Trone Outdoor Motorsports sprinter raced home the winner of the first 20 lap main while Dietrich drove the Gary Kauffman Motorsports mount to victory in the second feature.

 

Gerard McIntyre, Jr. grabbed the early lead in the first 20 lap feature but an early race red flag on lap three slowed the action. Brad McClelland got upside down in the second turn and collected Lynton Jeffrey.

 

Fifth-starting Fred Rahmer was up to second on the restart but McIntyre kept the 10-time track champion at bay before Rahmer took the lead with 11 laps complete.

 

Hodnett, who started sixth moved into second spot on lap 12 and began to close on the leader when Rahmer made contact with the backstretch wall and then crashed hard into the third turn wall bringing out a red flag.

Hodnett assumed the point and was never challenged in scoring his second straight win in the Pigeon Hills and his 25th career, moving him into 11th place on the all-time track win list.

 

“We were very fortunate tonight, there was obviously a lot of contact in front of us and we just took advantage of their misfortune,” said the Thomasville driver following his $2,700 payday. “That’s the way it goes sometimes. We’ll take any break we can get.”

 

Hodnett noted Rahmer’s contact with the wall as he was chasing down the leader with five laps to go.

“We were good in three and four and could run pretty hard,” he added. “He tapped the wall in two and I was doing the same thing trying to open up the entry and then he really wopped it in three.”

 

Four-time track champion Brian Montieth finished in the runner-up spot over Danny Dietrich, 12th starting Ryan Bohlke, McIntyre, Brent Marks, Tim Glatfelter, 18th starter Jim Siegel, Daryn Pittman and Doug Esh.

 

Glatfelter set sail from his front row starting spot in the second Twin 20 and similar to Rahmer in the first feature, Glatfelter bounced off the front stretch wall and then crashed hard into the first turn wall bringing out the red flag and a destroyed race car.

 

Dietrich, who lined up sixth on the original start blasted from third to first on the lap six restart to assume command of the race.

 

Despite several late race yellow flags for spins by Lynton Jeffrey, Dietrich was able to keep the field at bay and score his fourth win of the year and seventh of his Lincoln career.

 

“We wouldn’t want to have it any other way,” said the Aspers driver as he capped off a great season in victory lane. “We’ve been so close the last several weeks and we knew eventually we were gonna be in victory lane. Just glad we could do it tonight.”

 

Jim Siegel finished in the runner-up spot over 11th starting Alan Krimes, Montieth, 12th starting Chad Layton, Hodnett, Cory Haas, Marks, Bohlke and Nick Schlauch, Jr.

 

“This team behind me and my crew work so hard,” Dietrich added. “I just wheel this thing and they do the rest. You win races from the shop too.”

 

Greg Hodnett set a new one lap track record in time trials with a lap of 13.137 seconds. That eclipses the previous record of 13.200 set by Alan Krimes on October 8, 2011.

 

The top 10 fastest in time trials transferred directly into the Twin 20’s.

Heats for the 30 “410” Sprints were won by Bill Stine and Ryan Bohlke. Bolhke set a new 10-lap track record with a time of 2:16.517 seconds erasing the old record of 2:17.848 seconds set by Cory Haas on March 5, 2011. The consolation was won by Rick Lafferty.

HODNETT PICKS UP FIRST LINCOLN WIN OF THE YEAR IN 410 SPRINTS

Cannon becomes 15th winner in 17 races in 358 sprints; Martin closes season with Thundercar win;
Gallagher claims 2011 Lincoln Thundercar track title

 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 10/15/2011 – Greg Hodnett was the class of the field in Saturday’s 25-lap 410 sprint car feature at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

 

Hodnett took the lead from polesitter and race-long leader Logan Schuchart on lap ten and held off Danny Dietrich and Chad Layton to claim his 24th career Lincoln win.

 

“We’re always trying different things,” said Hodnett upon exiting the Eagle Steel/Trone Outdoor Advertising/Macri Concrete #39 in victory lane, “Lee (Stauffer) and the guys did a great job getting the car set up. I felt really good in the heat and I could run wherever…it just worked out for us to get to the front first.”

 

Hodnett started seventh and advanced the fourth by the end of the second lap. He drove under Danny Dietrich for third on lap three, and both he and Dietrich caught front-row starter Brian Leppo (who was piloting the Heffner Racing #27) for second and third on lap four.

 

Hodnett closed on Schuchart and made the race-winning pass on lap ten. Dietrich caught Schuchart for the runner-up spot one lap later, and Layton moved into third on lap 14 and was closing on the leaders when the first caution of the race came out for a spinning Cory Haas in turn four of lap 17.

 

Brad McClelland, taking his first ride in the C.C. Dietz #14, brought out a caution in turn four on the restart, and Austin Reed spun on turn two of lap 18. But neither Dietrich nor Layton had anything for Hodnett on either of the restarts or the remainder of the race.

 

“I saw Danny try to shove it underneath us there a couple of times, and I figured I’d better move down there and see what was around,” said Hodnett, “Sure enough, there was rubber starting to take, and the longer you run, it gets faster and faster. At the end, I just kinda’ slowed down to make sure I didn’t get into traffic, and I figured if they were good enough to go around on the top, so be it. But the bottom was definitely the place to be at the end.”

 

Schuchart settled for fourth, with Mark Smith rounding out the top five. Sixth through tenth were Brent Marks (back in the family #19M), Alan Krimes, Doug Esh, Brian Montieth, and Leppo.

MONTIETH WINS SECOND IN-A-ROW, SIXTH OF THE YEAR ON MANUFACTURERS NIGHT
(Click on headline link above for full story and results)
Niki Young holds off Mark Smith to claim second win of the year in “358” Sprints

 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 10/8/2011 – Four-time Lincoln track champ Brian Montieth is known as “the Edge,” but he’s been far from it with racing-winning passes over the past two major shows at Lincoln Speedway.

 

“It’s a dirty air thing,” explained Montieth after exiting his Premier Auto Works/Auto Locator #21 in victory lane following his sixth Lincoln Speedway win of the year Saturday night, “A lot of people don’t understand that you get these things two or three car-lengths behind the other car in front you…they’re a hand-full to drive, so you have to try and stay out of that slip stream. Luckily, Scott (Zellers) got this thing working on the bottom enough that we can make the moves we gotta make.”

 

Montieth started third in Saturday’s 23rd Annual Hank Gentzler Manufacturers Appreciation Race and drove under outside front row starter Greg Hodnett for second in the first turns. After that, he chased polesitter and race-long leader Danny Dietrich for the first 18 laps before pulling the slider to make the race-winning pass in turns three and four of lap 19. He tried the same move unsuccessfully in the same turns following an eighth-lap restart.

 

“Danny was actually better than us on the short runs,” said Montieth, “He got a little loose there the longer we went, and I really didn’t want to see all those yellows and reds. If we kept getting them, I don’t think we’d have caught him.”

 

The red flags were for Randy Baughman, who flipped in turn three of lap four. The other red was on lap eight, when Gerard McIntyre rolled in turns three and four, collecting Danny Holtgraver and Nick Schlauch. No drivers were injured in either crash, but earlier in the evening, Lance Dewease was injured when he broke a rear axle and barrel-rolled on the backstretch while running third in his heat. Dewease was taken to Hanover Hospital, and then later transported to York Hospital for further evaluation.

 

Dietrich, who finished second in points to Montieth this season, settled for second, with Hodnett, 13th-starting Brad McClelland, and Justin Henderson completing the top five. Sixth through tenth were fast timer Alan Krimes, Brian Leppo, 20th-starting Cory Haas, Adam Wilt, and Ryan Bohlke.

 

In one of sprint car racing’s most unique events, Denise Gentzler and Hank’s Performance Products distributed more than $48,000 worth of manufacturers products and services to the 24 cars which qualified for the $4,000-to-win feature.

 

410 Sprint heats were won by Bohlke, Wilt, Henderson, and Bill Stine, with Johnny Mackison, Jr. winning the B-Main. Danny Dietrich won the Dash in a new six-lap track record, the second of two set on the night.

 

Fast time in time trials over the 37-car field was set by Alan Krimes with a new one-lap track record time of 13.200 seconds (102.273 MPH).

 

Niki Young became only the second repeat winner of the year in the 20-lap “358” sprint car feature.

 

Young drew the “0” pill for the inversion and started on the pole, but it was invader Duane Mausteller who the first two laps from his outside front row starting spot. Young claimed the lead from Mausteller on lap three and led the rest of the way to take the checkered .44 seconds over a charging Mark Smith, who started third and pressured Young over the final laps.

 

Behind Smith in third was Mike Bittinger, with Ted Thomas, Jr. and 10th-starting Cris Eash completing the top five. Sixth through tenth were lady driver Amy Ott, 15th-starting Steve Owings, Nathan Berwager, Kyle Moody, and Tim Wagaman.

 

Heats for the 44 “358" sprinters were won by Young, Mausteller, Smith, and Thomas.

Twin consolations were won by Billy Johns and Kyle Purks.

MONTIETH ADDS FIRST CAREER WELD/RIFE MEMORIAL WIN TO CHAMPIONSHIP SEASON

(Click on headline link above for full story & results)
Watson wins fifth of the year by a foot over Kyle Martin in Thundercars

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 9/24/2011 – Four-time track champ Brian Montieth used a page out of the Fred Rahmer playbook to score his fifth Lincoln win of the year in the 40-lap Kenny Weld/Hilly Rife Memorial at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

 

The driver known as “the Edge” started third, slid under new one-lap track record holder Rahmer for second on a seventh-lap restart, and then slid under polesitter and race-long leader Stevie Smith in turns three and four following an 11th-lap restart.

 

“I guess I learned my lesson from Fred (Rahmer) being used up all those years,” said Montieth of the restart passes to move into second and then first, “You’ve gotta grab cars on the initial starts, and luckily this thing was good enough to accelerate off the corners.”

 

After that, only late-race lapped traffic kept the win from being in doubt. Fourth-starting Greg Hodnett, who caught Smith for second on lap 18, and third-place Smith closed on Montieth as the three raced through heavy lapped traffic over the final five laps.

 

Montieth, who enjoyed a two-second lead with 10 to go, saw his lead cut in half over the next five laps. The lead dwindled to .56-seconds at the end, with Hodnett (who was racing without brakes at the end) and Smith crossing second and third.

 

“My hat’s off to Scott (Zellers) and the boys,,” continued Montieth, “They gave me a car that I could pretty much drive anywhere. It sorta’ sucks running up front, because I knew Greg was back there, and…running in traffic here…it’s better to be second than first. Greg took his shot and I knew he was there, so it was just block for the win.”

 

Counting bonus money from the Larry Rife, Jr. family (grandson of Hilly Rife) and Pat Sterner from Sterner Rental Properties, lap money, and his heat race finish, Montieth’s 25th career Lincoln win was worth $6,850.

 

Danny Dietrich received a $500 bonus for being the top-finishing car with Weld Tech heads in fourth, with Rahmer crossing fifth. Completing the top ten were 15th-starting Gerard McIntyre, Jr., Lance Dewease, Jim Siegel, 24th-starting and hard charger Chad Layton, and Cory Haas.

 

410 Sprint heats were won by Brent Marks, JJ Grasso, Brad McClelland, and Kyle Pruitt, with Justin Henderson winning the B-Main.

 

Fast time in time trials over the 35-car field was set by Fred Rahmer with a new one-lap track record time of 13.241 seconds (100.597 MPH).

 

Duane Watson scored his fifth win of the year in a wild Thundercar feature that saw him cross a foot in front of Kyle Martin at the finish. Polesitter Tom Walls led the first four laps before third-starting Martin grabbed the lead. Martin then held off the challenges of 11th-starting Watson and Brian Walls from lap nine until Watson finally took the lead on lap 19. Martin came back and challenged Watson off the final turn to the checkered, with Watson crossing .19-seconds in front of the #54. Walls finished a close third, with Jamie Zentmyer and Danny Beard completing the top five.

Heats for the 20 Thundercars were won by Tom Walls, Martin, and Watson.

PERIGO CLAIMS FIRST CAREER “LAWRENCE CHEVROLET SPORTSMAN 100” WIN
(Click on headline link above for full story & results)
Knaub wins race, track title in “358” late models;

 ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 9/17/2011 – “I never led lap 100 and I was going to try and do that tonight,” quipped a jubilant Carmen Perigo, Jr. after winning his first career Lawrence Chevrolet Sportsman 100 at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

 

Perigo, who has finished second in several Sportsman 100’s, started tenth by virtue of a heads-up start based on time for the fastest 12 drivers in time trials, and stayed pretty invisible during the first 70 laps of the 100-lap event.

 

“I was a little too free the whole 70 laps,” said Perigo, “It was all I could do to hang on. The only way I could pass cars was when we hit lapped traffic. We tightened it up a little bit, and actually we didn’t tighten it up enough. It took some traffic to bring Frank back to me and I at least I had a legitimate shot at him. But once I saw I was on his bumper…he was in a ‘no win’ situation and I was coming by.”

 

When the race restarted after the mandatory 10-lap red on lap 70, Perigo wasted no time in advancing from seventh to third on laps 71 and 72, first passing polesitter Rick Barr and Scott Geesey on lap 71, and then getting by Russ Mitten for third on lap 72.

 

Perigo watched Paul Miller and sixth-starting Frankie Herr battle for the lead for the next eight laps before driving under Miller for second on lap 80. He then chased Herr for the next 18 laps before pulling the race-winning slider in turns three and four to take the lead as he and Herr were coming off turn four to take the white flag.

 

Perigo drove away over the final lap to a .63-second win and the $4,000 top prize.

 

“I won championships before,” said Perigo, “But I never won this race. This was my goal this year, and we fulfilled it.”

 

Perigo’s win came in the 60th year of racing for car owner Walt Bigler.

 

Herr, who was seeking his sixth Sportsman 100 win and led on two different occasions for a total of 30 laps, settled for second, with Paul Miller (who also led twice and led the most laps), former Scott Dellinger, and early race leader Scott Geesey completing the top five. Sixth through tenth were Rick Barr, Steve Wilbur, Leroy Martin, Jay Fannasy, and Bobby Hockenberry.

 

Super Sportsman qualifiers were won by Martin and Mitten, with Lanny Hake winning the last chance race.

Fast time in time trials over the 34-car field was set by Rick Barr with a one-lap time of 15.567 seconds (86.722 MPH).

 

Dover’s Gene Knaub capped off his championship season with his fourth win in six Lincoln races in the 358 late models. Knaub officially started 12th, but lined up eighth in a single-file restart after four unsuccessful attempts to start the race. He took the lead from polesitter and race-long leader Carl Graves on the seventh lap. He drove away to a 3.91-second win over D.J. Mease, with Grant Adams coming on strong at the end for third, Ralph Morgan fourth, and Graves completing the top five.

 

The early race crashes took out points contenders Chase Billet and Bobby Beard. Adams, who was only 15 points behind Knaub entering the race, came from the back to finish third following one of the early-race crashes.

 

Heats for the 25 “358" Late Models were won by Adams, Bobby Beard, and Cam Zeigler.

Logan Schuchart becomes first repeat 358 Sprint winner in 2011
ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 9/10/2011
- For those who sat through a three and-a-half hour rain delay, the "358" sprint car championship at Lincoln Speedway was worth the wait.

In what most fans and track officials called the greatest individual performance in the history of "358" sprint car racing in the Pigeon Hills, Hanover’s Logan Schuchart came from 21st starting spot to claim the $2,000 top prize in the 25-lap championship event Saturday night.

And he did it with the help of only one caution flag. By that time (lap nine), the Central PA 358 Sprint Car Point Series leader was already up to eighth.

A poor lap in time trials (24th quick) put Schuchart on the inside of row 11 for the start. Schuchart, who became the first repeat winner in 15 races at Lincoln this year, advanced 13 positions in the first eight laps, entered the top five by passing Austin Hogue on lap 13, caught 11th-starting Niki Young on lap 18, and then got serious.

With four laps to go, Schuchart caught third-starting T.J. Stutts for third. He then wrestled the runner-up spot from Chad Trout in heavy lapped traffic on lap 23. Schuchart spent lap 24 closing on polesitter and race-long leader Pat Cannon, and pulled the race-winning slider through turns one and two of the final lap. Despite slight contact, both Schuchart and Cannon maintained control and finished first and second.

"That was the most fun race I’ve ever been in!" exclaimed the grandson of the famous Bobby Allen in victory lane, "I might have made a little contact with Pat on that final lap, but I knew it was the only chance I had."

"I saw I was in eighth during that caution, and that was the first I realized I had a chance," continued Schuchart, "Coming from that far back is tough, but this car was perfect tonight, and I thank Grandpa and the rest of the crew for another great job."

Third through fifth were Trout, Stutts, and Young. Completing the top ten were Logan Wagner, Tim Berkheimer, Hogue, Nathan Berwager, and Tim Wagaman.

Jeff Rohrbaugh’s 11th-place finish was good enough to secure his second Lincoln track title in the past three years.

Heats for the "358" sprinters were won by Ted Thomas, Brian Wilson, Eric Tomecek, and Logan Schuchart.

Adrian Shaffer won the C-Main, while Cris Eash won the B-Main.

Fast time in time trials over the 46-car field was set by Eash with a one-lap time of 14.526-seconds (92.937 MPH). But then Eash suffered front end damage in his heat, forcing his B-Main start. Eash was able to start seventh for the feature but came to a stop while running fourth in turn two, bringing out the only caution flag of the event.

 Points leader Matt Wallace started on the pole, led the first nine laps, and then reclaimed the top spot on lap 17 to win the 20-lap Classic Car Racing Series feature. Leading laps ten through 16 and finishing second was Pete Neal, with Kurt Welsh, Jim Crocker, and Brandon Little completing the top five.

 Duane Watson drove to his fourth win of the year in the 20-lap thundercar feature. With the rain-delay, a season-long points inversion of nine cars put Watson sixth for the start. It took Watson only two laps to grab the lead from outside front row starter Jamie Zentmyer. Despite a late-race caution for debris on lap 17, Watson drove away to a 1.6-second win over Zentmyer, with hard charger Brian Walls (who started 10th), Todd Miller, and Roy Warehime, Jr. rounding out the top five.

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 9/3/2011 - It went down to the final lap of the final points race of the year.

And as Jim Siegel was holding off title contender Danny Dietrich to become the 13th different driver to win a race at Lincoln this year, Brian Montieth passed two cars on the final lap to secure his fourth straight track championship.

Dietrich’s second-place finish closed the Gary Kauffman-owned Sandoe’s Fruit Market/APM Buildings #48 to within 20 points at the end, but Montieth, who needed to finish in the top seven to secure the title no matter what Dietrich did, passed both Kyle Pruitt and Cory Haas on a last-lap shootout to cross sixth.

The last-lap restart was set up when Jim Siegel pulled a slider on race-long leader Chad Criswell coming through the final turns. Though there was no contact, Criswell lost the handle and spun out, bring out the caution.

"It was pretty exciting from where I was sitting!" exclaimed the third-generation New Oxford driver upon exiting his N-Line Marketing/Orndorff Construction #59 in victory lane, "My hats off to Chad Criswell. He did a heck of-a-job. I don’t think I dirtied him up there. Desperate times call for desperate measures, and that was a last-ditch effort. I think I cleared him there...and I don’t know if he got sideways or spun out or whatever, and I didn’t know what to do on that last restart.’

The caution put 11th-starting Dietrich on Siegel’s bumper for the final restart, but Siegel held on for his seventh career Lincoln win.

"The 48 obviously was looking to put it in victory lane for his championship hopes," continued Siegel, "They had a good year, but it’s been a long time since I’ve been here and this feels good!"

Crossing third behind Dietrich as seventh-starting Gerard McIntyre, Jr., with 12th-starting Brian Leppo and Brad McClelland rounding out the top five. Sixth through tenth were Montieth, Pruitt, Haas, Nick Schlauch, Jr., and Austin Reed.

Adam Wilt was uninjured in a front stretch flip to bring out the only red of the event on lap 10.

Heats for the 22 "410" sprinters were won by Haas, Leppo, and Pruitt.
