ALAN KRIMES WINS SPRINT SPRING CHAMPIONSHIP AT LINCOLN SPEEDWAY FOR SECOND WIN IN-A-ROW

(Click on headline link above for full story & results)
Kevin Nouse Wins Second In-a-row in 358 Sprints;

15 Year Old Female Racer Michelle Walls Wins Career First in Street Stocks

 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 4/19/2014Alan Krimes summed it up best in victory lane Saturday night at Lincoln Speedway.

 

“I don’t know if I won that race or just didn’t lose it,” said Krimes after climbing from his Midnight Antiques, Conestoga Valley Garage, Krimes Racing Engines No. 87. Sprinter in victory lane following his win in the 30-lap 410 Sprint car Spring Championship.

 

It was a race that saw several red flags and in one lap that saw nine of the top 10 running cars dropping from contention due to various reasons. But Krimes missed all of the crashes and won the battle of attrition to score his second straight victory in as many weeks and upped his career total to 15 in the Pigeon Hills.

 

“I thought it was going to be pretty tough starting back there tonight because I knew the best we could start was 12th and ended up starting 13tth,” said Krimes. “Then everybody started dropping out and I thought we might not have to pass any cars tonight if they all keep dropping out.”

 

All of the craziness started on lap five when Steve Owings spun, collecting Nathan Berwager, and Brian Montieth who flipped. Aaron Ott also flipped in turn three after a reported stuck throttle.

 

On the restart, Tim Wagaman and Adam Wilt tangled collecting point leader Danny Dietrich, who did everything but flip on the front stretch.

 

Second-place running Billy Dietrich then stopped on the next restart which made him the ninth car inside the top 10 to drop out. That left only Will Rose, who had led the race from the green flag, the lone top 10 car on the track.

 

When the dust settled, Krimes, Jim Siegel, Brent Marks and Robbie Kendall all entered the top five with Krimes storming by Rose to take the lead with six laps complete.

 

Krimes continued to lead Siegel as the pair closed on lapped traffic when Tyler Ross and Wilt tangled in turn three right in front of the leaders. Siegel took evasive action to miss the incident but Marks wasn’t as lucky and spun into Wilt.

 

Montieth advanced through the field after his flip to move into the top five on lap 18 and then took fourth on the next circuit. But that would be as far as Montieth, the four-time track champion, would make it as Krimes held off Siegel in heavy lapped traffic over the final few laps to pick up the win.

 

“We made a few changes under that one red and freed the car up a little bit but we could have been better,” said the Denver driver after earning the $4,000 paycheck. “Our car has been real good every time out it seems so we’re hoping for a good season. I don’t know that I’ve ever won two in-a-row, and like I said, I don’t know that we would have won tonight if everyone wouldn’t have had problems so we got lucky.”

 

Siegel finished in the runner-up spot ahead of Kendall, Montieth and Gerard McIntyre, Jr.

 

Kevin Nagy crossed in sixth with Freddie Rahmer getting his best career finish in seventh over Danny Dietrich, Austin Hogue and Cory Haas.

 

Sprint car heat races were won by Siegel, Dietrich and Ott with Marks topping the consolation for the 29 car field.

 

Kevin Nouse raced his way from his 12th starting spot to score an impressive win in the 20-lap feature for his second win in-a-row at Lincoln in 358 Sprint car action.

 

The Mechanicsburg driver worked his way into second spot by lap eight and made the race winning move by Jay Galloway on the 15th lap. From there Nouse drove away to fourth career win in the Pigeon Hills.

 

Nouse did have several close calls during the feature before bringing his Bulls-Eye Express, McKeehan Motorsports No. 4R sprinter to victory lane.

 

Galloway finished second followed by Brian Allman, Chase Dietz and Chandler Leiby with Matt Campbell, Matt Findley, Brie Hershey, Mike Bittinger and Zach Eucalano rounding out the top 10 finishers.

 

Heats for the 27 358 sprint cars were won by Rick Horn, Nouse and Dietz with Tyler Esh topping the consolation.

 

At the age of just 15, lady racer Michelle Walls captured his first ever street stock feature win in the only appearance of the season by the division this season at Lincoln.

 

The Gettysburg driver started fourth and took the lead on the 12th lap from Gary Potts and held on over the final eight laps in the win over Potts, Walt Lemmon, Bob Scott, Jr. and Chris Heller.

 

Street stock heat wins went to Gary Potts and Bob Scott, Jr.. There were 12 cars pitside.

KRIMES TEAM CHANGES “EVERYTHING BUT THE DRIVER,” WINS LINCOLN 410 SPRINT CAR MAIN
(Click on headline link above for full story & results)

Perigo takes Super Sportsman feature; Knaub class of the field in Precise Racing Products 358 late model event

 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 4/12/2014 – He gone! That’s the catch phrase Alan Krimes and his followers use when Alan Krimes starts putting his competitors behind him. And he did it short order in Saturday’s ARCH Night 25-lap 410 sprint car feature.

 

“I have to thank Dennis Kohler,” said Krimes upon exiting his Midnight Antiques/Conestoga Valley Garage/Krimes Racing Engines #87 in victory lane, “He changed everything but the driver there before the feature, and he must have found something.”

 

Touché. Krimes started ninth, crossed fifth at the end of the first lap, and passed outside front row started Kevin Nagy for second on lap three. At the time, polesitter Tyler Ross held a 1.16-second lead, which was quickly erased by Krimes over the next three laps.

 

“I knew starting on the bottom was going to be the key,” said Krimes,” The top was real dirty and it was hard to run up there. I got a real good start and I thought we’d be in pretty good shape. I got up to second there pretty quick. The 92 was going pretty good, and he just slipped in turn four and allowed me to sneak underneath him.”

 

Krimes caught Ross in turns one and two of the sixth lap, and led until eighth-starting Brian Montieth passed him in lapped traffic exiting turn four of lap 22. Heading into the very next turns, Montieth lost the handle and spun out, handing the lead back over to Krimes. No one was more surprised than Krimes himself.

 

“We came up on a lapped car running on the bottom, and I made up my mind to go to the top to get around him,” said Krimes, “I almost spun out, and Brian got back by me and I turned and got back underneath him going into one, and the yellow came out. I thought ‘Dang it!’ He had me at the line and they’re going to put him back in front of me. I came back around, and he was sitting there, so we lucked out. He would’ve been tough to get by.”

 

Robbie Kendall inherited second for the restart, but was never able to challenge Krimes, who crossed 1.34 second in front for his 14th career Lincoln win. In doing so, he became the fourth winner in as many races in 2014.

 

Danny Dietrich came from tenth starting spot to catch last week’s feature winner Jimmy Siegel for third with a lap to go. Siegel, who started 12th, settled for fourth, with Nagy fifth. Sixth through tenth were hard charger Cory Hass (who started 15th), Glenndon Forsythe, Lance Dewease, Ross, and Adam Wilt.

 

Heats for the 29 410 sprinters were won by Nagy, Austin Hogue, and Forsythe, with Gerard McIntyre, Jr. winning the consolation.

 

Carmen Perigo, Jr. dominated the 25-lap super sportsman feature, starting third and leading every lap, to score his fifth career Lincoln win. Defending tour champ Frankie Herr was involved in a multi-car crash in turns three and four of lap three to end his night.

 

After setting a new 10-lap track record in his heat, Scott Geesey advanced from fifth to second on the first lap and ran there the rest of the way, with Russ Mitten coming from 14th starting spot to finish third. Rounding out the top five were Mike Enders and Rick Barr.

 

Heats for the 32 Super Sportsman were won by Joey Biasi, Geesey, Perigo, and Chad Trout, with Rich Eichelberger winning the consolation. Geesey’s 10-lap track record was 2 minutes, 31.44 seconds.

 

Dover’s Gene Knaub drove away from the field to score his 15th career win in the 20-lap Precise Racing Products 358 late model feature. Knaub started fourth and took the lead from polesitter Travis Mease on lap four. He led the rest of the way, with outside front row starter Tyler Horst crossing second. Third through fifth were hard charger Kyle Lear (who started ninth), Mease, and Alan Sagi.

 

Heats for the 19 358 Late Models were won by Knaub and Bobby Beard, who dropped from the field while running third in the feature.

RECORD-BREAKING NIGHT AT LINCOLN

Ryan Wilson & Kevin Nouse Celebrate Track Prep Man Fred Putney’s Birthday with Records

 

Abbottstown, PA - 4/7/2014 – Saturday night April 5th Master Track preparer Fred Putney celebrated his 61st birthday by giving the drivers and teams a dream track that saw not one, but two 10-lap track records broken.

 

In the 410 Sprints, Ryan Wilson ran the fastest 10 laps in Lincoln Speedway history in two minutes 9.444 seconds in the first heat. That not only broke only the current weight-rule record of two minutes 12.817 seconds set by Brent Marks last year on 3/2/2013, but broke the pre-weight rule record of two minutes 12.905 seconds held by Brian Leppo from 3/14/2009.

 

And then in the 358 Sprints, Kevin Nouse set the tone early on his feature-winning night by recording the fastest 10 laps in 358 Sprint history in 2 minutes 19.97 seconds to break Mark Smith’s two minute 23.41 second record from 6/22/2013.

 

It was a big night for all, especially for the fans as they saw:

 

  • Ryan Wilson record the fastest 10 laps in Lincoln Speedway history in 410 Sprints.

  • Jim Siegel pick up his 10th career win at the Pigeon Hills oval and became the third different winner in three events this season.

  • Kevin Nouse record the fastest 10 laps in 358 Sprint history.

  • Kevin Nouse pick up his third career Lincoln win and became the second different winner in two events.

  • Scott Jorda claimed his first career win in the 20-lap All-American Outlaw feature.

  • And Master Track preparer Fred Putney celebrated his 61st birthday by giving the fans a track to produce all of the above.

 

It was a great night for all with many more to come in 2014. This Saturday, April 12th, it’ll be ARCH NIGHT in the Pigeon Hills, featuring the 410 Sprints, Super Sportsman, and 358 Late Models. As part of ARCH’s “Cars and Guitars Tour,” the rock band “Seventh Tower” will perform in a special concert in the infield from 5-5:45 PM. Gates will open at 5 PM, with the first green flag scheduled for 7 PM.

SIEGEL CLAIMS CAREER TENTH IN LINCOLN “410” SPRINT FEATURE
(Click on headline link above for full story and results)
Nouse comes from seventh to win “358” main; Scott Jorda scores first career win in All-American Outlaws

 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 4/5/2014 –New Oxford’s Jim Siegel started on the pole and led them all in picking up his tenth career Lincoln win in the 25-lap “410” sprint car feature Saturday night.

 

“The track was super-fast and hard to pass on tonight, said Siegel upon exiting his Mason-Dixon Vault Company #59 in victory lane, “It was a good night to have a little luck and draw a good number for the heat race. Of course, we’ve had bad luck all year and started up front. That was definitely the difference. There wasn’t much passing.”

 

Actually, there was, but Siegel never saw it.

 

Cory Haas came from seventh starting spot to actually challenge Siegel in lapped traffic after passing outside front row starter Tim Wagaman on the 17th lap. And third-place finisher Brian Montieth lived on the edge all night and came from 18th starting spot.

 

“I don’t know where Cory started. I thought I heard him a couple times, I wasn’t really sure,” said Siegel after becoming the third different winner in as many races in the Pigeon Hills this season, “I was trying to take my time with lapped cars, because we tore this thing up on opening day and I don’t want to go through that again. This is the only car we have.”

 

The last 16 laps went non-stop, with the leaders dicing through the field.

 

“I knew they (lapped cars) were holding me up, so I thought ‘It’s time to sit up in the seat and go.’ The car was a lot faster than what I was pushing it, but when the track’s like this and there’s not much passing, you have to just make it wide and go as fast as you need to, and that’s what I tried to do.”

 

Wagaman hung on for fourth, with 15th-starting Danny Dietrich coming home fifth. Sixth through tenth were Steve Owings, Robbie Kendall, Glenndon Forsythe, Mike Bittinger, and 21st-starting Billy Dietrich.

 

When asked about the early-race challenges of rookie 410 racer Tim Wagaman, Siegel pointed out the abundance of young talent now racing weekly at Lincoln.

 

“There’s a lot of new faces this year, and it’s going to make it tough until you learn everyone’s tendencies,” said Siegel, “There are a lot of talented young guys out here, and it’s going to be tough here by the end of the year.”

 

Heats for the 29 410 sprinters were won by Ryan Wilson, Derek Sell, and Siegel, with Freddie Rahmer winning the consolation.

 

Mechanicsburg’s Kevin Nouse prevailed in a late-race battle with Chase Dietz to score the win in the 20-lap “358” sprint car feature. Nouse started seventh and grabbed the runner-up spot from polesitter and early-race leader Tyler Esh on lap 10. From there, he tracked down fourth-starting Dietz, who had taken the lead from Esh on lap five.

 

Nouse was on Dietz’s back bumper as the two navigated through lapped traffic with two laps to go. That’s when disaster nearly struck for both leaders, with Dietz getting crossed up by a lapped car in turn four and both cars bouncing off each other exiting the turn. Nouse nipped Dietz at the line with the white flag waving, and held on for his third career Lincoln win.

 

Dietz settled for second, with opening day winner Niki Young coming from eighth to cross third. Competing the top five were Esh and Matt Campbell. Rounding out the top ten were Duane Watson, Zach Eucalano, Brie Hershey, Chandler Leiby, and Jay Galloway.

 

Heats for the 19 358 sprinters were won by Watson and Nouse.

 

Westminster, Maryland’s Scott Jorda claimed his first career win in the 20-lap All-American Outlaw feature event, after finding himself the leader on an 18th-lap incident involving leader Randy Doty and second-place Hunter Nester.

 

Nester got into the back of race-long leader Doty in turn four, resulting in a Doty spin and a roughriding call against Nester, sending him to the rear.

 

Jorda led the final three laps, holding off Justin Cullum for the win. Third through fifth were Al Daniels, Jim Minter, and Doty.

 

Heats for the 20 All American Outlaws were won by Doty and Bryan Green, who pulled into the infield just before the start of the feature event.

DIETRICH CHASES HISTORY WITH 19TH CAREER LINCOLN WIN
(Click on headline link above for full story and results)

Defending champ Young claims opener with new race team in 358 sprints; J.R. Rodriguez takes 358 late model opener

 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 3/22/2014 – Danny Dietrich turned in a dominant performance at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night, driving away from the field to win the 25-lap “410” sprint car feature and claim his first win in the Pigeon Hills since last July.

 

In the process, he moved alongside his dad with 19 career Lincoln wins.

 

“I sure hope to pass him…maybe even next week!” joked Dietrich upon exiting the Gary Kauffman-owned Sandoe’s Fruit Market/Weikert’s Livestock #48, “But to get to where I’m at, I have to thank him, Gary, and everyone that sponsors this car. Without my dad, my brother, and Gary, I couldn’t do it.”

 

A redraw of the top four finishers from the qualifiers place Dietrich third for the start. He passed outside front row starter Kyle Moody for second on lap four, just before the only caution of the race came out for his brother (Billy), who came to a stop in turn four.

 

Dietrich followed polesitter Brent Marks for six more laps before making the pass as the leaders hit lapped traffic on lap 11. From there, Dietrich drove away to a 1.78-second win over Marks, with Greg Hodnett, Moody, and Lance Dewease completing the top five. Sixth through tenth were J.J. Grasso, Brian Montieth, opening day winner Adam Wilt, Gerard McIntyre, Jr., and Cory Haas.

 

“We were real good in the heat there,” said Dietrich, “We were trying to make the bottom work down in one and two in the heat. We knew if we could make that work, we’d go workin’ tonight. We were happy with that. We did the same thing here in the feature and it worked everywhere we went.”

 

Heats for the 30 “410” sprinters were won by Billy Dietrich, Chad Kemenah, and Grasso, with Austin Hogue winning the consolation.

 

Defending track champ Niki Young started on the pole led every lap of the 20-lap season opener for “358” sprint cars, holding off heavy pressure from 2013 Williams Grove champ Kevin Nouse for his eighth career Lincoln win.

 

And he did it with a new race team, now driving for car owners Jeff Boll and Mike Miller in the Lee Alwine Ornamental Iron Works #91.

 

Though he led the whole way, Young survived a 10th-lap challenge from Nouse, who started tenth and pulled alongside Young heading in to turn one. Young drove low and took away Nouse’s line entering the first turn. Nouse settled for second, with Duane Watson completing his best-ever 358 sprint run in third. Lady driver Brie Hershey and Chase Dietz rounded out the top five.

 

Sixth through tenth were Chandler Leiby, Doug Hammaker, Matt Campbell, Mark Strickler, and Zach Eucalano.

 

Heats for the 18 “358” sprinters were won by Nouse and Strickler.

 

J.R. Rodriguez started on the pole and held off the race long challenges of Cam Ziegler and then a last-lap challenge from good friend Gene Knaub in the 20-lap Precise Racing Products 358 late model feature. Knaub, who started eighth, caught Zeigler for the runner-up spot following an 18th lap restart and closed on Rodriguez, but the neon orange #71 crossed two carlengths in front at the end.

 

Zeigler finished third, with Pat Beard and Tyler Horst completing the top five.

 

Former thundercar track champ Sam Gallagher was running fourth when he suffered engine failure and came to a stop in turn four on lap 18.

 

Heats for the 20 “358” Late Models were won by Alan Sagi, Chase Billet, and Kyle Martin.

WILT CLAIMS SECOND OPENING-DAY WIN IN LINCOLN “ICEBREAKER 30”
(Click on headline link above for full story and results)
Lincoln Returns to Night Racing Next Saturday night

 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 3/15/2014 – “On opening day, you bring all your best stuff. You even wear your new underwear.”

 

So quipped Adam Wilt after claiming his second opening day win in three years at Lincoln Speedway Saturday afternoon.”

 

His underwear wasn’t the only thing new in the Wide Open Motorsports team. Well-known mechanic Lee Stauffer joined the team during the winter months. And he used some hand signals Adam didn’t quite understand during a mid-race caution.

 

“I knew I had a good car from the beginning and I knew I had to power around those guys or they would have held me up,” said Wilt upon exiting his Credit Connection/North York AutoMenders #15, “But, as soon as I got in front in clean air, I saw my new crew chief Lee (Stauffer) come out under the caution doing hand signals. I didn’t know what they meant. I don’t know if I’m going too crazy on the top and I need to slow myself down or what. I figured I did the right thing.”

 

Wilt started fourth and grabbed the lead from outside front row starter Glenndon Forsythe on the second lap. After a caution for Cory Haas, who hit the outside wall and came to a stop in turn two on lap four, Wilt paced the field until seventh-starting Brian Montieth took the lead away on lap eight.

 

Billy Dietrich and Robbie Kendall brought out the caution flag with a joint spin on turns one and two of lap 11, at which time fifth-place Danny Dietrich went to the pits with a flat right rear.

 

Wilt reclaimed the lead from Montieth on the restart, and was doing his best to hold off Montieth when the Premier Auto Works/Auto Locator #21 hit the wall in turn one of lap 14. Montieth only suffered a flat tire and returned to action.

 

The race went non-stop the rest of the way, with Wilt holding off Alan Krimes and J.J. Grasso through heavy lapped traffic over the final stages of the race. Ironically, two of the cars at the rear of the field at the end were the two track champs in the field. Wilt’s final margin of victory in his fourth career Lincoln win was 1.29 seconds over Krimes, with Grasso, polesitter Kyle Moody, and Forsythe completing the top five.

 

Sixth through tenth were 20th-starting Greg Hodnett, invader Cole Duncan, 410 sprint rookie Austin Hogue, 22nd-starting Gerard McIntyre, Jr., and 410 sprint rookie Shane Hoff.

 

“This is a great win for a new team. But we don’t want to set expectations too high right now, said Wilt, “We just want to go as we go and do what we can do. Starting position was a key factor, but I’ll take a win any day. It’s tough at this deal You’ve got 90 per cent of your cars here are just tough to beat.”

 

Heats for the 30 sprinters on hand were won by Grasso, Montieth, and Krimes, with Scott Fisher winning the consolation.
