STEVIE SMITH CLAIMS $20,000 TOP PRIZE IN LINCOLN SPEEDWAY “DIRT CLASSIC”
(Click on headline link above for full story & results)

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 9/24/2016 – “I said at the beginning of the night that the only thing better than winning a Lincoln Dirt Classic was winning two of them.”

 

So said Stevie Smith after claiming his second win in three years in the 40-lap $20,000-to-win “Dirt Classic” in the Pigeon Hills Saturday night.

 

Smith, who started third after setting third-fast time and gathering the third-most points in time trials and qualifying, followed front row starters Lucas Wolfe and James McFadden the first two laps before catching the Kasey Kahne Racing #4 in turns three and four of lap three.

 

One lap later saw the “Dirt Classic” lose its front row, with McFadden turning over in turn four to bring out the red, and then Wolfe going to the pits with an oil leak during the red flag. Smith assumed the lead for the restart, with Danny Dietrich, Gerard McIntyre, and Matt Campbell in tow.

 

But it was only the first time he led the race, as Dietrich closed on the leader in lapped traffic. Smith, who admitted having trouble with the lapped traffic, lost the lead to Dietrich on turn four of lap 30. One lap later, Adam Wilt flipped in turn four, leading to a fuel stop. At the time, 11th-starting and rapidly closing Greg Hodnett was about to make it a three-car battle for the lead.

 

And that’s exactly what it became on the restart with nine laps to go. Smith and Dietrich both bounced off the walls on subsequent slide jobs, with Smith coming out with the lead on lap 35. A lap later, the final caution of the event came out for Cory Haas, who spun in turn one.

 

That set up a dramatic three-car battle between Smith, Dietrich, and Hodnett for the win over the final five laps.

 

“I told Fred (Rahmer) during the red that Danny’s going to go to the top, so we’re going to have to run the bottom,” said Smith in victory lane, “When I saw him peel down to the bottom, I knew that was my chance to go back around him on the top. We finished second last year and we didn’t wait to finish second again this year. We ran our tail off. Danny did a nice job, but when you get out there in the lead, you’re not sure which way to go. He’s been really fast this year. I think being in second may have won us that race.”

 

“All these guys are tough in my book,” concluded Smith when reflecting on a talent-laden 48-car field, “The older I get the better they look!”

 

In the end, Smith pulled away to a 1.03-second win over Dietrich, with Hodnett settling for third. Lance Dewease received the $700 bonus ($500 from the Beer Hill Gang and $200 from Winebrenner Harley in Hanover) as hard charger for coming from 14th starting spot to finish fourth, with Brian Montieth coming from 15th starting spot to finish fifth.

 

Sixth through tenth were McIntyre, Tim Wagaman, Jim Siegel, Campbell, and Ryan Smith.

 

The final transfer spot of the night went to J.J. Grasso, as he and track champ Alan Krimes got together just before the finish line in the B main, with Krimes crossing sideways at the finish line to cross fifth.

 

Fast time in time trials over the 48-car field was set by Matt Campbell, running his first-ever Lincoln 410 sprint car race, with a one-lap time of 13.182-seconds (102.412 MPH).

 

Two rounds of heats were won by James McFadden, Lucas Wolfe, Bill Balog, Danny Dietrich, Ryan Smith, Terry McCarl, JJ Grasso, Greg Hodnett, Brent Marks, and Adam Wilt. Tyler Esh won the C-Main and Freddie Rahmer won the B-Main.

MITTEN DOMINATES LAWRENCE CHEVOLET KEYSTONE 50 FOR SUPER SPORTSMAN
(Click on headline link above for full story & results)

Montgomery, Geeseman only lead last lap in winning Central PA Legends, street stock thrillers

 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 9/17/2016 – Russ Mitten raced to his biggest payday of the year in Saturday night’s Lawrence Chevrolet Keystone 50 for super sportsman at Lincoln Speedway.

 

The Newville veteran started on the outside of the front row and led every lap of the extra-distance race, picking up all the lap money and $100 bonus for the leading the most laps for a total payday of $3,190 in scoring his fifth career win in the Pigeon Hills.

 

“I don’t know. I had a game plan when we went on the race track, and that was to run the cushion no matter what unless we got into lapped cars, which I did heavily,” said Mitten in victory lane, “I about crashed a couple of times behind them, but just trying to be as fast as you can and be cautious at the same time is tough to do.”

 

“I knew Frank was back there,” continued Mitten, “On the fuel stop, the guys asked if I wanted to make any changes. I said not to touch it…just put fuel in it. The car’s good, I could maneuver through traffic decent, and I didn’t want to mess it up. But when they put fuel in it, it really changed the car for about five or six laps. The car got tight on me, but as soon as the fuel burned off it came back around and got going good again. That last caution, I was sweating bullets because I knew Frank was back there. Anyone who follows sportman racing knows that Frank’s a killer and restarts, so I knew I had to hit my marks perfect on the restarts. I pretty much figured once I got through turns one and two and didn’t see anyone, I was going to be okay because three and four were my better turns.”

 

Mitten had nearly a two-second lead when heavy lapped traffic allowed all-time Lincoln super sportsman winner Frankie Herr to close in. But a caution with three laps to go gave Mitten a clear track, and he drove away to a 1.09 second win.

 

Herr settled for second, with fast time timer and fourth-starting Kenny Edkin third. Completing the top five were Doug Dodson and 11th-starting Rich Eichelberger. Rounding out the top ten were 15th-starting Mike Enders, 14th-starting Tony Jackson, Steve Fannasy, Timmie Barrick, and 18th-starting Devin Beidel.

 

Todd Leonard received the $100 hard charger bonus after starting 23rd and finishing 12th. Jay Fannasy received the hard luck award when he broke and dropped from the field while running fifth with three laps to go.

 

Fast time in time trials over the 28-car Super Sportsman field was set by Edkin with a 1-lap time of 15.314-seconds (88.155 MPH). Qualifying races were won by Scott Dellinger (who spun on the front stretch of lap five and dropped out) and Jackson.

 

Both support division features saw the winners lead only the final lap after racing-winning passes exiting turn four.

 

York’s Lucas Montgomery went from third to first when race leaders Harlon Leppo and Bob Stough got together in the final turns to the checkered. It was Montgomery’s fifth career Lincoln win. Leppo recovered to finish second, with Stough (who had started 11th) dropping to fifth. Crossing third and fourth were early race leader Jeff Herbst and Chad Earnst.

 

Heats for the 30 Central PA were won by Tony Mracovich, Stough, and Reed Saloney (who came from 10th starting spot and dropped from the field while leading on lap 13), with Greg Burd winning the consolation.

 

Jason Geeseman drove under Ryan Smith to win the 20-lap street stock feature by a half-carlength. Smith, who started fourth, took the lead from Sean Todd on lap five and led going into the final turns. He settled for second, with Jimmy Combs, Greg Diehl, and Todd completing the top five.

 

Heats for the 24 Street Stocks were won by Tyler Stump, Diehl, and Kyle Martin, who was involved in a three-car front stretch crash, ending his night, on lap five of the feature.

SHEARER WNS CAREER FIRST, LEIBY CLAIMS TRACK TITLE IN LINCOLN “358” SPRINTS
(Click on headline link above for full story & results)

Cam Zeigler dominates 358 late models; Hanson wins for the second time this season in PASS/IMCA sprints

 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 9/10/2016 – The youth movement continued in the final points race of the season for “”358” sprint cars at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

 

Rookie Brent Shearer of Manheim became the sixth different first-time winner in the 20-lap feature event.   Shearer, who came from 19th to fourth a week ago, started fourth and finished the job this week, holding off two-time track champ Jeff Rohrbaugh at the end.

 

It was not without drama, as front row starter Tyler Walton grabbed the lead from polesitter Ashley Cappetta and led the first 14 laps.  Shearer took the lead from Walton at the line to complete lap 15, and Walton drove up over Shearer’s right rear entering turn one.  Walton flipped, and Shearer drove out of a 360 spin and never stopped, giving him the lead for the restart with five laps to go.

 

The final five laps saw eighth-starting Rohrbaugh charge into the runner-up spot, but he could never catch Shearer.

 

Rohrbaugh settled for second, with 10th-starting Jeff Halligan third, 11th-starting Matt Campbell fourth, and Matt Findley fifth.  Completing the top ten were Adrian Shaffer, Chris Arnold, Chandler Leiby, Cody Fletcher, and C.J. Tracey.

 

Leiby’s eight-place finish clinched the 2016 Keiser Aluminum Wheels 358 sprint car championship for the Carlisle teenager who just graduated from high school a few months ago.  Campbell finished second in season points for the second straight year, with Shaffer a close third.  Both drivers entered the evening trailing Leiby by just 55 points.

 

Heats for the 30 358 Sprints were won by Halligan, Arnold, and Campbell, with Mike Bittinger winning the consolation.

 

Cam Zeigler took advantage of a crash involving the front row at the outset, and drove the Walls family #98W away to a 5.87-second win over Brad Shank in the 20-lap “358” late model feature event. 

 

Front row starters Travis Mease and Randy Stoudt smacked together in turn two of lap one, ending both of their nights.  Precise Racing Products point series leader Sam Gallagher drove into the pits during the caution to change a flat tire, but then dropped out later in the event.

 

Zeigler and Shank assumed the front row for the complete restart, and ran first and second the entire way.

Third through fifth were Shaun Jones, Jake Jones, and Randy Christine, Jr., who came from 12th starting spot.

 

Heats for the 20 358 Late Models were won by Shank and Zeigler.

 

Jeremi Hanson started on the pole and led all 20 non-stop laps for his second consecutive Lincoln win in the PASS/IMCA 305 sprint car feature.  His 20-lap time was 5:42.18, good enough to hold off a closing 11th-starting John Barnett at the finish.  Third through fifth were Tyler Reeser, Colby Dice, and Rick Stief.

 

Heats for the 29 PASS/IMCA (305) Sprints were won by Drew Ritchey, Reeser, and Ron Aurand, with Kyle Ganoe winning the consolation.

ALAN KRIMES WINS FEATURE, CLAIMS SECOND TRACK TITLE AT LINCOLN SPEEDWAY
(Click on headline link above for full story & results)

Chandler Leiby keeps points lead with first win of the year in “358” sprints; Dellinger dominates super sportsman

 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 9/3/2016 – Denver’s Alan Krimes added an exclamation point to his second track title in three years by claiming the 25-lap “410” sprint car feature win at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

 

And he did it in dramatic fashion, coming from 11th starting spot through a stacked field to take the lead from Brandon Rahmer with two laps to go.

 

Polesitter Matt Boland led the first 13 laps from the pole before fifth-starting Brandon Rahmer took the lead on a 14th-lap restart. Meanwhile, Krimes was methodically working through the field and was running fourth at the time. He moved past Boland into the runner-up spot on lap 17.

 

“We got going real good there on the bottom at one point in the race, and it seemed like we picked off a bunch of them,” said Krimes in victory lane, “Then we had that yellow and I restarted fourth, and I thought with those guys running the top I should go to the bottom and drive through there. But on the bottom for the restart I was junk. Then another yellow came out and I rolled the wing back a little bit. Then the car was pretty good around the bottom and I got into second.”

 

“I was gaining on Brandon a little bit and I was trying to watch the scoreboard because I knew the laps were winding down,” continued Krimes, “I thought I might get one shot at him. When we came up on the lapped car I think Brandon got up over the cushion or something and I was able to slip between him and the lapped car coming off turn four. It’s not a move you can pull off very often, but that was all it took.”

 

Once in front, Krimes took the checkered two laps later by 1.25 seconds over Rahmer, with 10th-starting Brian Montieth, Austin Hogue, and Gerard McIntyre, Jr. completing the top five. Sixth through tenth were Jim Siegel, Kyle Moody, 14th-starting Cory Haas, Freddie Rahmer, and Tim Wagaman.

 

Heats for the 25 410 Sprints were won by Glenndon Forsythe, Billy Dietrich, and Montieth.

 

Chandler Leiby, involved in a tight season points battle with Matt Campbell and Adrian Shaffer, picked up a much-needed first win of the season in the 20-lap “358” sprint car feature.

 

Leiby started fifth after polesitter Kyle Abrahims came to a stop during one of four attempts to start the race, and took the lead from Matt Findley (who ended up on the pole) on lap seven. He fought off repeated challenges from Kyle Denmyer, who actually led laps 13 ad 14 before Leiby moved back in front.

 

Denmyer settled for second, with Findley, 19th-starting Brent Shearer, and Shaffer crossing third through fifth.

 

Doug Hammaker plowed into the third-turn wall while running fourth on lap 13. He was taken to Hershey Medical Center by his family after complaining of a headache, dilated pupils, and general disorientation after the crash, which collected sixth-place Matt Campbell. Campbell came from the back over the final eight laps to cross eighth behind Dalton Dietrich and Phil Walter, remaining alive in the points battle with one points race to go.

 

Heats for the 31 358 Sprints were won by Findley, Hammaker, and Shaffer, with Shearer winning the consolation.

 

Scott Dellinger picked up his fourth career Lincoln win in the 25-lap super sportsman feature. He started on the outside of the front row and followed polesitter Russ Mitten for the first laps before making the race-winning pass. He dominated the rest of the way, crossing 1.53 seconds ahead of Mitten at the end. Third through fifth were Doug Dodson, Steve Wilbur, and Kenny Edkin.

 

Chad Criswell was uninjured in a spectacular end-over-end flip on the backstretch of lap five. That multi-car crash also ended the night for Rich Eichelberger and Jay Fannasy. Fannasy lost a wheel, which Criswell hopped over, leading to the flip.

 

Heats for the 21 Super Sportsman were won by Fannasy, Dellinger, and Davey Walsh.

SIEGEL 15TH DIFFERENT WINNER OF THE SEASON IN LINCOLN 410 SPRINT CAR FEATURE
(Click on headline link above for full story & results)

BRIE HERSHEY SCORES SECOND CAREER WIN IN 358” SPRINTS; JOSH BLOOM WINS FIRST EVER IN STREET STOCKS

 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 8/27/2016 – Jim Siegel picked up his first win of the year and became the 15th different winner in 20 races in the 25-lap feature at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

 

Handicapping placed Siegel fourth for the start and he drove into the runner-up spot by the end of the first lap.

From there, he chased down outside front row starter and race-long leader Tim Wagaman to make the race-winning pass on lap nine, one lap after the event’s only caution came out for Adam Wilt, who oiled the front stretch after getting a hole in the oil pan.

 

“Timmy was rolling in the beginning and I didn’t know if I was going to be able get him,” said Siegel in victory lane, “That caution was a welcome sight. My intent was to do it in one and two, but he got a better restart than me and caught me sleeping. I knew there was a big strip of moisture off of two, and I got a good run and almost got to him. I knew he was going to get it back. I didn’t get a real good drive off four, so I just sped up to hit that moisture strip again and once we got out front, lapped cars did a good job of using their heads, and we just got to picking them off one at a time.”

 

Siegel drove away from the field for his 13th career win in the Pigeon Hills, moving him alongside Neil Haight and Steve Stambaugh for 24th on the all-time Lincoln win list.

 

Wagaman settled for second, crossing 4.16 seconds behind the winner, with defending track champ and hard charger Brian Montieth advancing from tenth to finish third. Keeping pace and holding on the Lincoln points lead with one point race remaining was Alan Krimes, who came from 11th starting spot. Rounding out the top five was Gerard McIntyre, Jr.

 

Completing the top ten were Danny Dietrich, Cory Haas, Robbie Kendall, Austin Hogue, and 16th-starting Chase Dietz.

 

“We’ve been getting better. We had a decent start to the beginning of the year and then we just started struggling,” said Siegel, “We made gains and then struggle and make gains and struggle. About the last month here, we put a Maxim together and we’re back on Pro Shocks and started from scratch. We’ve been getting better every week. Starting spot helped”.

 

Heats for the 28 410 Sprints were won by Krimes, Montieth, and Danny Dietrich, with Kevin Nagy winning the consolation.

 

Lady driver Brie Hershey of Dillsburg led every lap in claiming her second career Lincoln win in the 25-lap “358” sprint car feature. Hersey dominated the entire way in the finale of the Nouse Signs and Graphics “358” Sprint Car Summer Series, crossing 1.19 seconds in front under the checkered.

 

Doug Hammaker finished fourth and took home the $1,000 top prize in the Summer Series after coming into the final race with a slim one-point lead over Kevin Nouse.

 

Starting on the outside of the front row and crossing second was Phil Walter, who raced with Matt Campbell for the runner-up spot over the final laps, with Campbell picking up the hard charger award for coming 16th starting spot to finish third. Behind Hammaker in fifth was Kyle Denmyer, who finish third behind Nouse overall summer series points.

 

Sixth through tenth were Adrian Shaffer, Nouse, Tyler Esh, Jeff Halligan (who came from the back after a multi-car incident on lap four), and Matt Findley, who came from 21st starting spot.

 

Points leader Chandler Leiby was involved in a turn two crash on lap four, ending his night. His 22nd-place finish, combined with Campbell’s third-place finish closed Campbell to within 15 points unofficially with two point races remaining.

 

Heats for the 38 358 Sprints were won by Hershey, Walter, Dwight Leppo, and Jeff Rohrbaugh, with Findley winning the consolation.

 

East Earl’s Josh Bloom started on the pole, led every lap, and claimed his first career win in the 20-lap street stock feature.

 

The win came by 1.16 seconds over third-starting Randy Zechman, with Greg Diehl, Jamie Zentmyer, and hard charger Jimmy Combs, who came from 15th starting spot.

 

Heats for the 28 Street Stocks were won by Zentmyer, Mike Potts, and Kyle Martin, with with Josh’s dad Ryan Bloom winning the consolation.

 

Next Saturday night, September 3rd, Lincoln Speedway celebrates the Labor Day holiday weekend with a three division show featuring the Lawrence Chevrolet 410 Sprints’ final point race of the 2016 season. Will Alan Krimes hang on to claim his 2nd track title in three years, or can four-time defending track champion Brian Montieth overcome Krimes’ sizeable point lead to record yet another track title? The 358 Sprints will also be competing in their next-to-last Keizer Aluminum Wheels point race, along with the Super Sportsman who will be competing in their final tune-up before their big Keystone 50 race on September 17th. Rounding out the evening will be a spectacular FIREWORKS display. As usual, general admission gates will open at 5:30 PM with qualifying heats getting underway at 7:30 PM.

Stough comes from eighth to claim seventh career Lincoln win in Central PA Legends

 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 8/20/2016 – Danny Dietrich took home the $5,000 top prize and led a PA Posse sweep on the podium and Saturday night’s Arctic Cat All-Star 30-lap feature event at Lincoln Speedway.

 

Dietrich was 11th fastest in time trials, won his heat, and finished second in the dash to start alongside polesitter Lucas Wolfe in the “A Main.” He followed Wolfe for the first 16 laps before making the race-winning pass exiting turn two of lap 17. He then drove away to a 2.81-second win over Lincoln point leader Alan Krimes, who caught Wolfe for the runner-up spot as the leaders raced through heavy lapped traffic on lap 20.

 

It's was Dietrich’s second All-Star win of the year, the seventh All-Star win of his career, fourth Lincoln All-Star win, and 31st overall Lincoln career win.

 

“I couldn’t be more excited to be back at Lincoln Speedway,” said Dietrich after exiting his Sandoe’s Fruit Market/Hickory Run Orchards/Weikert’s Livestock #48 in victory lane, “It feels like we haven’t been here for a long time. Last time we were here we were pretty good, but it was a handicapped show and we had to come from 12th. Not that it couldn’t have been done.”

 

“We went back to some old notes,” continued Dietrich, “I’m proud of our guys who have been working their butts off. I want to thank Gary (Kauffman) and everyone who sponsors this thing. I was trying to stay with Lucas and thought I would be better at the end. I was definitely tight at the beginning of the race. I was trying to play my cards right. I thought I could use lapped traffic and was waiting for the bottom to come in on turn four and it was pretty wide out of three and four. I was pretty good up there. After I got the lead, I think I saw Lucas’ front bumper underneath me once, so I just kinda put my turn signal on. That’s what we do to win these races.”

 

Above all, Dietrich said he was glad to be back home.

 

“I’m glad to be back. This is my home track. I’m glad to see all these fans at this place again, and I couldn’t be happier to be back.”

 

Wolfe settled for third, with top finishing All-Star Dale Blaney fourth and Freddie Rahmer completing the top five. Sixth through tenth were Brandon Rahmer, Ryan Smith, Gerard McIntyre, Jr., Austin Hogue, and Stevie Smith (the third Rahmer car in the top ten).

 

Sprint heats were won by Andrew Palker, Cap Henry, Danny Dietrich, and Chad Kemenah, with Jim Siegel winning the B-Main and Wolfe winning the Dash. Fast time in time trials over the 41-car All Star Sprint field was set by Dale Blaney with a 1-lap time of 13.168-seconds (102.521 MPH).

 

Bob Stough came from eighth starting spot to win the 20-lap Central PA Legends feature.

 

It was an unexpected win, as polesitter Harlan Leppo led the first 18 laps before slowing in turn two of lap 19. At the time, Stough was racing with Mason Chaney for the runner-up spot, which turned into a battle for the lead. Stough took control later in the lap, and edged Chaney at the line for his seventh career Lincoln win (second behind Jason Rochelle’s 10 wins).

 

Chaney crossed less than a car length behind in second, with Chad Earnst, Lucas Montgomery, and Reed Saloney (who came from 18th starting spot and failing to start his heat).

 

Heats for the 21 Central PA Legends were won by Leppo and Chaney.

PENNSYLVANIA MIDGET WEEK ENDS WITH RAIN ON LAP SEVEN OF LINCOLN USAC/ARDC FEATURE

(Click on headline link above for full story & results)
ALL-STARS UP NEXT THIS SATURDAY 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 8/17/2016 – A surprise rainfall on lap seven of Lincoln Speedway’s USAC/ARDC feature event brought a disappointing end to an abbreviated Pennsylvania Midget Week Wednesday night.

 

Nevada’s Tanner Thorson set fast time for the 20 midgets on hand, and took the lead from USAC points leader Spencer Bayston on a third-lap restart. He, Brayston, and Brady Bacon were running first through third when Steve Buckwalter brought out the caution flag after stopping in turn two.

 

As track crews were tending to Buckwalter, the rains arrived. Track preparer Fred Putney and his crew went to work, and the track was minutes from being race-ready when the rains returned.

 

Lincoln and USAC officials were forced to throw in the towel, and the remainder of the program was cancelled. Lincoln announced that rain checks from the show will be honored for the next three shows, and anyone who cannot return to the track during that time period can receive a full reimbursement by sending rainchecks to Lincoln via regular mail.

 

Lincoln had skirted other pop-up showers earlier in the evening, and it appeared that the track was in the clear.

 

Heats for the 20 USAC Midgets were won by Trevor Kobylarz, Chad Boat, and Alex Bright.

 

Fast time in time trials over the 20-car USAC Midget field was set by Thorson with a 1-lap time of 15.942-seconds (84.682 MPH).

Lincoln is back in action this Saturday night, August 20th, with Pepsi Night along with York County Racing Club (YCRC) Night as the ALL-STAR CIRCUIT OF CHAMPIONS come to Lincoln Speedway to take on the Pennsylvania Posse. Central PA Legends will round out the night’s racing action. Gates will open at 5:30 PM, followed by time trials at 7:30 PM.

J.J. GRASSO EDGES 12TH-STARTING MONTIETH IN FALLEN FIREFIGHTERS NIGHT AT LINCOLN SPEEDWAY

Troy Wagaman, Jr. scores first career win in “358” sprints; Fred Cullum makes late-race pass to win All-American Outlaws

 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 8/13/2016 –J.J. Grasso started on the front row and held off 12th-starting Brian Montieth at the end to score his third career Lincoln win in Saturday night’s 33-lap National Fallen Firefighters feature event in memory of Brandon Little.

 

Grasso dominated most of the race from the pole, leading by as much as a straightaway with five laps to go. But Montieth fought his way through lapped traffic to close onto Grasso’s bumper on the final lap, crossing just 11-hundreths of a second behind the Middletown, DE winner. The two cars nearly touched at the finish line as they crossed with a lapped car.

 

“I thought Brian was going to get me sooner,” said Grasso after claiming the $5,000 top prize in his family-owned BK Trucking/Betts Garage #37, “I was running as hard as I could and was trying not to get over a lapped car or do anything stupid. That rain delay helped. I had a little problem and was able to fix the front end during that delay. I’m just glad Brian Montieth didn’t get by.”

 

The event actually began with a first-lap flip by Cory Haas just before the rains came, resulting in an hour and-a-half delay. Haas was able to make repairs during the delay and restart at the rear, coming back through to finish 13th.

 

“I’m having a little trouble catching my breath and I’m a little emotional,” said Grasso, “This one is for Bryan Clauson and Kramer Williamson. Those guys taught everyone so much, and they were such good racers. It feels so good to be here. I guess I’m a little out of shape after going 33 laps non-stop.”

 

Montieth made Grasso work hard over the final five laps as he closed the gap dramatically, setting up the final front stretch thriller to the checkered.

 

Third through fifth were points leader Alan Krimes, Tyler Ross, and Kyle Moody. Rounding out the top ten were Billy Dietrich, Jim Siegel, Austin Hogue, Adam Wilt, and Robbie Kendall.

Heats for the 24 410 Sprints were won by Tim Glatfelter, Dietrich, and Montieth.

 

Hanover’s Troy Wagaman, Jr. took the lead at the outset and led them all in the 20-lap “358” sprint car feature. But the last seven laps were tough, as tenth-starting Jeff Halligan moved into the runner-up spot, closed on Wagaman, and took the lead from Wagaman with a slider in turn two late in the race, only to have Wagaman race back by Halligan down the backstretch.

 

Halligan settled for second, with 12th-starting Matt Campbell, point leader Chandler Leiby, and Jeff Rohrbaugh completing the top five.

 

Heats for the 28 358 sprints were won by Nick Palmerino, Adrian Shaffer, and Tyler Walton.

 

Fred Cullum took the lead from polesitter and race-long leader Randy Doty with two laps to go and scored the win in the 20-lap All-American Outlaw feature.

 

Doty, Bryan Green, Fred’s son Justin Cullum, and Gary Moreland, Sr. crossed second through fifth.

 

Heats for the 11 All American Outlaws were won by Fred Cullum and Green.
