TODD SHAFFER WINS LINCOLN “LEGENDS OF THE SPORT” FEATURE
(Click on headline link above for full story & results)

DIETRICH CLAIMS $10,000 WINNER TAKE ALL $10,000 IN 410 SHOOTOUT;

Phil Walter holds off Hammaker for 358 sprint car win

 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 8/26/2015 – Technically, it was his sixth Lincoln win and the 197th of his storied career. But Lincoln Speedway and Fred Rahmer Promotions will let it to the pundits as to whether it counts.

 

But for Todd Shaffer, his win in Wednesday night’s “Legends of Central PA Sprint Car Racing” feature event was one that he will cherish for the rest of his days.

 

Second heat winner Kenny Adams of Malibar, Florida drew a zero pill for the inversion and led the first 10 laps of the feature event, losing a sizeable lead over Shaffer and the rest of the field when the competition yellow came out at the half-way point for what many drivers called an “oxygen break.”

 

On the 11th-lap restart, Adams bounced off the outside wall and lost the lead to Shaffer, who led the rest of the way. Adams settled for second, with Kenny Jacobs making a late-race pass to catch Cris Eash, who finished fourth. Keith Kauffman rounded out the top five in an event which featured 12 of the winningest drivers in Central PA history and among Fred Rahmer’s idols that he competed against throughout his career.

 

Qualifiers for the legends were won by the two 88 cars, Shaffer and Adams.

 

Danny Dietrich continued his hot streak by claiming two of the six match races and taking home the winner-take-all $10,000 among the six drivers elected by the fans through on-line voting.

 

Other winners of the five-lap match races were Dale Blaney (2) and Montieth (2).

 

In the end, Dietrich earned 53 points, followed by Lucas Wolfe with 50, Blaney with 48, and Montieth with 44. Greg Hodnett was sidelined in the first set of match races with a broken lifter, and Alan Krimes suffered mechanical problems in the last set of match races, ending both of their nights.

 

 

McClure’s Phil Walter, who raced against all but one of the legends on hand, took care of all the 358 sprinters in winning the 20-lap “358” sprint car feature.

 

Polesitter Cody Fletcher, grandson of one of the mechanics recognized as part of the evening’s festivities (Harry Fletcher), started on the pole and led the first five laps before giving way to fourth-starting Walter.

 

Though he led the rest of the way, he had to hold off the challenges of Central PA point series and Lincoln points leader Doug Hammaker over the second half of the race, taking the checkered .94 seconds in front for the $1,200 win.

 

Matt Campbell, second in Lincoln points, came on strong at the end to finish third, with Adrian Shaffer and Jeff Halligan completing the top five.

 

Heats for the 22 358’s on hand were won by Campbell, Shaffer, and Isaac Sneeringer.

DIETRICH SCORES SIXTH LINCOLN WIN OF THE YEAR IN BAPS NIGHT “410” SPRINTS
(Click on headline link above for full story & results)

Bill Stine claims first career win in “358” sprints; Rick Hulson best of All-American Outlaws

 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 8/22/2015 – Not even the highest pill draw and points handicapping can stop Danny Dietrich.

 

In his first Lincoln appearance since competing in the “A” main at the Knoxville Nationals, Dietrich started last in his heat, made the 12-car handicap, started 12th, and drove away to his sixth Lincoln win in the BAPS Night “410” sprint car feature at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

 

“Night in, night out these guys give me a fast car. I couldn’t be any happier,” said Dietrich upon exiting his Gary Kauffman-owned Sandoe’s Fruit Market/Hickory Run Orchards/Weikert’s Livestock #48 in victory lane, “To be sitting here again after going out on the road and picking up where we left off…we’re doing real good.”

 

Despite another masterful run through the field, Dietrich did have one close call as he closed on polesitter and race-long leader Tim Wagaman on the front stretch of lap 14.

 

“We got real lucky here on the front stretch. Zach (Euculano) was off the pace and pulling into the infield. I tried to stay behind him as long as I could just because there was nowhere to go around the top,” said Dietrich, “I didn’t know Cory (Haas) was there, and that was close…closer than I like to be. But these guys that we race with week in and week out are very clean racers, and I can’t thank all of them enough. Being clean on the track means we don’t tear anything up.”

 

Dietrich regrouped and drove around Wagaman exiting turn two of lap 15. From there, he checked out on the field, crossing 3.09 seconds in front of seventh-starting Haas.

 

Brandon Rahmer started second, ran second the first 12 laps, dropped to fourth with ten to go, and fought back to a well-earned third-place finish. Alan Krimes and Gerard McIntyre, Jr. completed the top five. Wagaman settled for sixth, followed by Brian Montieth, who came from the rear of the field following a second lap spin. Eighth and ninth were the BAPS cars of Brent Marks, 18th-starting Austin Hogue, and Kyle Moody.

 

BAPS Auto Paints & Supply provided $300 bonuses to the two sprint car winners, and added $200 to the second-place finisher and $100 to the third-place finisher in each sprint division. Fundraising efforts during BAPS two nights of 2015 Lincoln racing resulted in $7,000 for Olivia’s House in York.

 

Heats for the 27 410’s on hand were won by Brandon Rahmer, Jim Siegel, and Moody, with Scott Fisher winning the consolation.

 

Bill Stine started on the pole and led every lap of the “358” sprint car feature for his first career division win, despite losing the lead for a portion of a lap and reclaiming the lead from eighth-starting Adrian Shaffer, who chased the winner from lap four on.

 

Third through fifth were Lincoln point leader Doug Hammaker (who started 12th), Kevin Nouse, and Cole Young. Sixth through tenth were Matt Campbell (sporting a #31 to wing in remembrance of Jimmy Campbell), Tyler Esh, Ryan Higgins, Cody Fletcher, and Jeff Rohrbaugh (who came from the rear twice in multi-car crashes, the last one on lap eight).

 

Heats for the 29 358’s on hand were won by Campbell, Stine, and Nouse, with Lucas Montgomery winning the consolation.

 

Glen Bernie, Maryland’s Rick Hulson led flag-to-flag in the 20-lap All-American Outlaw feature, holding off Fred Cullum the entire way and crossed .97 seconds behind the winner. The victory ended a five-race win streak for teammate Kurt Zimmerman, who came from 11th starting spot to finish third. Fourth and fifth were Randy Doty and Justin Cullum.

 

Heats for the 17 All American Outlaws on hand were won by Zimmerman and Hulson.

ABREU ADDS LINCOLN TO HIS WIN LIST IN USAC/ARDC MIDGETS
(Click on headline link above for full story & results)

Leppo claims Central PA Legends feature; 410 & 358 Sprints return on Saturday

 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 8/19/2015 – For the throngs of race fans who turned out to Lincoln to see 4-foot, 4-inch Rico Abreu Wednesday night, he did not disappoint.

 

“That was pretty damn cool right there!” exclaimed Abreu after claiming his second USAC/ARDC win in as many nights as part of the Honda Midget Series “Eastern Storm” swing, “They packed the track in and that helped out a bunch. That was a pretty cool race to be driving.’

 

For most of the race, it looked like Abreu would have to rally to make the podium, as Jerry Coons, Jr. and Bryan Clauson waged a duel for the lead over the first 28 laps.

 

But the final laps were beyond description, with fifth-starting Abreu assuming third when teammate Christopher Bell spun in turns three and four with five laps to go.

 

On the 26th lap restart, Clauson got past Coons for the lead. A lap later, Coons (who led laps 1-13 and 16-25) began to fade, opening the door for a charging Abreu with four laps to go.

 

Abreu then took to the cushion to pass Clauson for the race lead on lap 29, and hung on for the crowd-pleasing win.

 

“I know it’s tough here leading. I went through the same scenario last night of just not knowing where to go. He got by Jerry and then went low. That left a clean lane up there,” said Abreu of the race-winning pass, “He’s a good enough driver to race me clean, and we get great racing like that. I just dragged raced him down into one. The top kinda got burned in there and I got my momentum going up there. It was exciting!”

 

He picked up $3,500 for the win, with Clauson settling for second, Tracy Hines coming from eighth to finish third, tenth-starting Kevin Thomas, Jr. fourth, and 12th-starting Alex Bright fifth. Sixth through tenth were Coons, Steve Buckwalter, Spencer Bayston, Tyler Thomas, and Brandon Bright.

 

“I’m having a lot of fun here in Pennsylvania,” continued Abreu, “I think it’s great USAC is now coming to Pennsylvania. I know there’s a lot of great race tracks here. It shows tonight with the great racing. I thank the fans for coming out. I know it’s a weekday, but it looks like a great crowd to me.”

 

Heats for the USAC Midgets were won by Steve Buckwalter, Coons, Tyler Thomas, Jr., and Christopher Bell, with Trevor Kobylarz winning the consolation.

 

Clauson set a new track record over the 31-car field in time trials, turning a lap of 15.804 seconds (85.421 miles per hour).

 

Spring Grove’s Harlon Leppo became the fifth leader on lap 18 and went on to win the 20-lap Central PA Legends feature.

 

Leppo started third but watched polesitter Mason Chaney led the first three laps and Travis McClelland lead lap four. He then led the next 11 laps before McClelland slid under Leppo for the lead in turn two of lap 17. One lap later, Leppo made an identical move to re-take the lead, and crossed 1.12 seconds in front of McClelland at the end.

 

Bill Diehl caught Bob Stough at the start-finish line to finish third, with Stough and Chaney completing the top five.

 

Heats for the 27 Central PA Legends on hand were won by Chaney, McClelland, and Leppo, with Rick Hartwig winning the consolation.

DIETZ’S FIRST CAREER 410 SPRINT WIN COMES AT LINCOLN SPEEDWAY
(Click on headline link above for full story & results)

USAC/ARDC Midget show up next on Wednesday night

 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 8/15/2015 – Rookie driver Chase Dietz fulfilled a life-long dream by claiming his first career 410 sprint car feature win during Premier Auto Works/Auto Locator Night at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

 

After normal qualifying and a unique set of two-car match races for the top 12 starters, the 2014 Lincoln “358” champ started fifth in the feature event.

 

Polesitter Jordan Mackison took the lead at the outset from outside front row starter Scott Fisher and led the first ten laps before Dietz nosed in front of him at the start-finish line, just before the lone caution flag of the race came out for a spinning Cory Haas in turn four of lap 11.

 

Because half the field wasn’t by, the lap didn’t count but Dietz’s pass for the lead did.

 

“I was sitting there under the caution and couldn’t believe I was in front,” said a jubilant Dietz after exiting his Scott Gobrecht-owned Bad Boy Buggies/Golf Cart Services/H&H Excavating Services #44 in victory lane, “We kept plugging away and I was kinda hoping we’d hit lapped traffic so that they would block for me a little bit.”

 

“After last night,” continued Dietz, “This race is definitely for Jim Campbell and the whole racing community. It’s tough to see that happen, but we all know what could happen when we strap in these race cars. It’s just a passion of ours. We all send prayers and thoughts out to the whole family. It’s just part of racing, but we just hope we never see it again.”

 

“We were racing with Jordan for the lead and I thought I was going spin out there a couple of times. It wasn’t the best I could have done getting up through. But we only have about 20 races on this thing, and it’s definitely a handful…especially when you’re getting excited going for the lead,” said Dietz, “It doesn’t matter what your in or where you are in any event here…it’s so tough. It’s a great accomplishment to be sitting here where all these legends have been. It’s an amazing feeling.”

 

After the 11th-lap caution, Dietz drove flawlessly through lapped traffic over the final 15 laps, holding off serious challenges by Adam Wilt, Alan Krimes, and Brian Montieth as the leaders raced through lapped traffic over the final ten laps. Montieth caught Krimes for third with three laps to go. Though he tried unsuccessful sliders on two occasions, fourth-starting Wilt was unable to make the pass and crossed 1.44 seconds behind Dietz.

 

“We talked to Scott earlier in the year, and he decided he wanted to put me in the car. I told him I didn’t know why he wanted to put a 17-year-old rookie in the car and spend all that money to give me this dream. I’m so fortunate,” reflected Dietz, “I have so many great people behind me. I can’t thank Scott, his family, and my family enough for giving me this opportunity.”

 

Mackison completed his best-ever Lincoln run in fifth, with Jim Siegel, Tim Glatfelter, Austin Hogue, Tyler Ross, and Billy Dietrich rounding out the top ten.

 

Heats for the 25 410’s on hand were won by Robbie Kendall, Dietz, and Krimes.

 

Lincoln swings back into action with a special mid-week show this Wednesday, August 19th, at 7:30 PM with the USAC Dirt Midgets (co-sanctioned by ARDC) coming to Central Pennsylvania. Central PA Legends will round out the evenings racing program which will see the gates open at 5:30 PM, and time trials getting underway at 7:30 PM.

LEIBY BECOMES 10TH WINNER IN 13 RACES IN LINCOLN ‘358’ SPRINTS
(Click on headline link above for full story & results)

Stough pads points lead with Central PA Legends win; Sixeas best of PA mini-stocks

 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 8/8/2015 –How dominant was Chandler Leiby at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night?

 

So dominant that he gave up a half-lap lead when the final caution flag of the event came out with five laps to go, and so dominant that his margin of victory was 6.82 seconds at the end. And so dominant that only eight cars finished on the lead lap.

 

“It’s all because of these guys right here,” said Leiby in pointing to his crew after scoring his first win of the year and claiming the $2,700 top prize in race 3 of the four-race Nouse Signs & Graphics Summer Series feature event, “This car was fast tonight, and thanks to Fred (Putney) for an awesome track. You could run anywhere here tonight.”

 

Ryan Higgins started on the outside of the front row and led the first two laps before yielding to fourth-starting Leiby on lap three.

 

Leiby covered nearly every square foot of the surface in successfully maneuvering lapped traffic over the middle stages of the race. There were four lapped cars between Leiby and second-place Matt Campbell when a caution came out for a spin by Wyatt Hinkle in turns one and two of lap 20.

 

One lap later, Jeff Halligan blew a motor on the backstretch and dropped oil on the track. Last week’s winner Kody Lehman rolled over Halligan’s left rear and barrel-rolled down the backstretch, collecting Brad McClelland, who rolled into the third turn. None of those driver were injured.

 

While circling to line up for the restart, Campbell had a tire go down and pitted to make the change, handing the runner-up spot to points contender Doug Hammaker.

 

That made difference to Leiby, who still had four lapped cars between his Leiby’s Seal Coating/MATCO Tools #119 and Hammaker. Leiby drove away to his third career Lincoln win, with Hammaker second, series sponsor and hard-charger Kevin Nouse third (after starting 15th), Chris Arnold fourth, and Jeff Rohrbaugh fifth. Campbell came back to finish sixth, with Adrian Shaffer and Ryan Higgins the only other cars on the lead lap.

 

Unofficially, Hammaker’s second-place finish combined with Campbell’s sixth put Hammaker back on top of the season-long points chase by just five points.

Heats for the 33 358’s on hand were won by Rohrbaugh, Higgins, Doug Hammaker, and McClelland, with Brie Hershey winning the consolation.

 

Bob Stough padded his points lead by leading all but one lap in the 15-lap Central PA Legends feature event. Though he was scored the leader on every lap but lap nine (Harlon Leppo), Stough bounced back and forth between first and third in a three-car battle for the lead several times in the middle of several laps.

 

Bill Diehl crossed second, followed by Leppo, Chad Earnst, and Joe Ehrisman.

 

Heats for the 26 Central PA Legends on hand were won by Scott Haudeshell, Travis McClelland, and Justin Mitchell, with Justice Forbes winning the consolation.

 

 

Mercersburg’s Shane Sixeas started third, wrestled the lead away from Jeremy Ott on the fourth lap, and led the rest of the way in the 20-lap main event for PA mini-stocks.

 

Frankie Gordon came through from 11th-starting spot to grab the runner-up spot from Ott late in the race and cross second, with Ott settling for third, 14th-starting LeRoy Long fourth, and 15th-starting Zach Myers fifth.

 

Heats for the 17 PA mini-stocks on hand were won by Ott and Sixeas.

 

Next Saturday night, August 15, 2015 it will be PREMIER AUTO WORKS/AUTO LOCATOR NIGHT for the 410 Sprints, along with an EMMR Exhibition. Gates open at 5:30 PM, with racing action getting underway at 7:30 PM.

Kody Lehman claims first career Lincoln win in 358 sprints; Joe Ehrisman celebrates 19th birthday with first career Central PA Legends win

 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 8/1/2015 – Danny Dietrich is on fire.

 

Dietrich came from 12th starting spot to claim his second straight Lincoln Speedway win, third win of the week, and sixth win over the past three weeks in Saturday night’s Pepsi Night 25-lap feature event in the Pigeon Hills. It was Dietrich’s 12th overall win of 2015.

 

After a spin by polesitter Darren Mollenoyux on the initial start, Glenndon Forsythe assumed the pole and led the first 14 laps, with fifth-starting Robbie Kendall on his tail for 13 of those laps. Meanwhile, Dietrich was charging to the front. He broke the top five by lap seven, advanced to third by lap 11, and made his race winning move around Kendall in turn three and under Forsythe in turn four of lap 15.

 

“I drove around Robbie and that was close, but I had a full head of steam coming and was hoping he would hear me and see me quick enough.” said Dietrich upon exiting his Sandoe’s Fruit Market/Hickory Run Orchards/Weikert’s Livestock #48 in victory lane, “Just a sequence of events. I got to sit back and watch what they were doing, and I made a last minute move to go to the bottom and I’m glad I did.”

 

From there, Dietrich checked out on the field, opening up a six-second lead with five laps to go.

 

Kendall caught Forsythe for the runner-up spot on lap 17, and ran there the rest of the way, finishing 6.31 second behind Dietrich, who won his 28th career Lincoln feature, pulling him into an 11th-place tie with Van May on the all-time Lincoln win list.

 

“This one of the best tracks we’ve had all year long, so I want to thank Fred Putney for that. This is one of the best tracks we’ve had all year long, The track surface has been getting way better here lately, and it’s allowing you to race. That’s the highest we’ve been up on the fence all year long,” said Dietrich, “These guys behind me did a heck-of-a job. By now everybody’s probably getting sick and tired of it, but we don’t get tired of it. These guys do what they gotta do, they work their butts off, and it’s paying off right now. They got this car rolling.”

 

Third through fifth were Cory Haas, Tyler Ross, and Alan Krimes. Forsythe settled for sixth, with Jim Siegel, Tim Glatfelter, Kyle Moody, and Gerard McIntyre, Jr. completing the top ten.

 

Heats for the 27 410’s on hand were won by Glatfelter, Krimes, and Austin Hogue, with Billy Dietrich winning the consolation.

 

Kody Lehman started on the pole, survived a rash of red flags over the first five laps, and led every lap in scoring his first career Lincoln win in t6he 20-lap 358 sprint car feature. Seventh-stating Adrian Shaffer and ninth-starting Matt Campbell advanced to second and third by lap eight and ran there the rest of the way. Lehman held off the closing Shaffer and Campbell as the three approached lapped traffic in the waning laps, with Lehman’s final margin of victory .66 seconds.

 

Fourth and fifth were Nike Young (in the 4R car) and Phil Walter.

 

There were no injuries in the three red flags over the first five laps. Flippers included Jake Eldreth, Chandler Leiby, C.J. Tracy, and Tyler Esh. Esh was actually able to continue after rolling onto his side, and finished 14th.

 

Heats for the 30 358’s on hand were won by Cole Young, Walter, and Doug Hammaker, with Bill Stine winning the consolation.

 

Newport’s Joe Ehrisman celebrated his 19th birthday by claiming his first career Central PA Legends feature win. Ehrisman came from 12th starting spot to pass several big guns, including Chad Glatfelter with two laps to go. Ehrisman assumed second for a restart when close racing resulted in a spin by leader Bob Stough on turn four of lap 13. Ehrisman snatched the lead from Glatfelter on the restart, and then held off Glatfelter and Chad Earnst in a one-lap shootout at the end.

 

Heats for the 24 Central PA Legends on hand were won by Bill Diehl, Scott Haudeshell, and Chad Glatfelter.

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 7/18/2015 – Another big race, another big win for Danny Dietrich at Lincoln Speedway.

 

Dietrich came from 12th starting spot, nursed an injured motor over the final 16 laps, and claimed the $5,040 top prize in the 28th Annual and final DARYL GOHN/GLENN GOHN, SR. MEMORIAL for 410 sprint cars in the Pigeon Hills Saturday night. The extra money was put up by friends, family members, and sponsors.

 

“I hurt a motor there with nine laps to go trying to pass (Tim) Glatfelter going into three,” said Dietrich, who shut it down as soon as he took the checkered flag and went to the infield for some assistance, “As soon as I turned the corner (on the ninth lap) it started going south. We’re just lucky to be standing here”

 

Polesitter Brandon Rahmer led the first 20 laps and had an impressive two-second lead in lapped traffic over outside front row starter Tim Glatfelter as late as lap 17. On lap 18, Dietrich caught Robbie Kendall for third, and then took second from Glatfelter following caution restart on lap 20.

 

Dietrich continued his surge, taking the lead from Rahmer in turns thee and four of lap 21. It was the debris caution on the last restart with two to go that led to Dietrich’s concern.

 

“I was worried about it taking off on that last restart,” said Dietrich, “I know daggone well we’ll show up tomorrow and have another motor. We’ve got another one in the shop that’s just as good.”

 

Despite the engine issue, Dietrich crossed 1.10 seconds ahead of Glatfelter, with Brandon Rahmer settling for third, Kendall fourth, and Austin Hogue fifth. Sixth through tenth were 11th-starting and point leader Brian Montieth, Billy Dietrich, Cory Haas, Jim Siegel, and Tyler Ross.

 

Heats for the 24 410’s on hand were won by Siegel, Brandon Rahmer, and Kyle Moody.

 

Two-time track champ Jeff Rohrbaugh moved into a tie with Cory Haas as the all-time winningest 358 sprint drivers after coming from 11th starting spot to score his 13th career Lincoln win in the 25-lap Nouse Signs and Graphics Summer Series feature event.

 

And he didn’t waste any time, advancing to third by lap the end of lap two.

 

Third-starting Kyle Denmyer led the first lap before spinning in front of the field and collecting Troy Wagaman, Jr. on turns one and two of lap two, resulting in Denmyer being knocked onto his side.

Both cars were done for the night.

 

Sixth-starting Cody Fletcher assumed the lead for the lap two restart, and held off Rohrbaugh for the next 14 laps before Rohrbaugh took the lead on lap 15. Rohrbaugh raced away to convincing 7.01 second win over a charging Doug Hammaker, who started 12th and grabbed the runner-up spot from Fletcher with three laps to go.

 

Fletcher crossed third, with Chandler Leiby and Adrian Shaffer completing the top five.

 

Heats for the 33 358’s on hand were won by Matt Campbell, Nathan Prezenica, Wagaman, and Leiby, with Brie Hershey winning the consolation.

 

Chad Glatfelter delivered a 90th birthday present to his grandfather by claiming the 15-lap Central PA Legends feature. Glatfelter started fourth, took the lead from outside front row starter and race-long leader Mason Chaney on lap four, and withstood the constant challenges of both Travis McClelland and Lincoln points leader Bob Stough over the final eight laps.

 

McClelland and Stough finished second and third, with Chad Earnst and Harlon Leppo rounding out the top five.

 

Heats for the 26 Central PA Legends on hand were won by Stough, Leppo, and Chad Glatfelter.

FRANEK CLAIMS FIRST CAREER LINCOLN WIN IN 358’S; OTT TAKES MACH 1 360/358 CHALLENGE

 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 7/11/2015 – Jim Siegel capitalized on a week of hard work and possibly a little help from upstairs in scoring his first win of the year in the Fallen Firefighters Night feature event at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

 

The 33-lap race was run in memory of firefighter Brandon Little, who was killed in a traffic crash while responding to a fire call in January of 2012, and in recognition of United Hook and Ladder Station 33, which serves Abbottstown and New Oxford.

 

As a young race fan, Brandon’s favorite driver was Jim Siegel.

 

“It’s special for me to be able to stand here on a night when we celebrate Brandon’s life,” said Siegel after scoring his 12th career Lincoln win and claiming the $5,000 top prize, “All I can say is that kids like him give their time and efforts. It matters a lot what those people do for us. I think it’s real special that they volunteer and help us out, because when you need them, they’re there for you.”

 

“I’ve been working my (butt) off all week,” continued Siegel, “So have my guys and my dad. We got that car tore up during the Monday Speedweek show here, and couldn’t make it back for Thursday. It’s been a long year. And it was an even longer week. It sure feels good to get the monkey off my back.”

 

Normal handicapping and a redraw with the first six spots and second group of six cars put Siegel on the inside of row two for the start. Outside front row starter Kyle Moody grabbed the lead from polesitter Glenndon Forsythe at the outset, with Siegel falling in line behind them.

 

The race’s lone caution flag came out for Scott Fisher on lap four. Siegel passed Forsythe for second two laps later, and closed quickly on Moody in lapped traffic over the next six lap. Siegel was actually scored the leader at the line completing lap 15, but Moody was able to retake the lead on the following lap.

 

Meanwhile, seventh-starting Danny Dietrich had worked his way into third place during that exchange.

 

Siegel was able to put on his race-winning move on lap 20. Four laps later, Dietrich got by Moody to take second. For the next ten laps, the Sandoe’s Fruit Market #48 tried to track down Siegel. He got close with five laps to go, but got hung up behind lapped cars, allowing Siegel to pull away to the .62-second win.

 

Moody settled for third, with Alan Krimes and Greg Hodnett completing the top five. Sixth through tenth were Austin Hogue, Forsythe, 20th-starting Brian Montieth, Chase Dietz, and Tim Wagaman.

 

Heats for the 34 410’s on hand were won by Moody, Cory Haas, Wagaman, and Lance Dewease, with Freddie Rahmer winning the consolation.

 

Sussex, New Jersey’s Davie Franek came from 11th starting spot to score his first career Lincoln win in the 20-lap “358” sprint car feature. Franek methodically worked his way through the field during through a red flag and four caution flags during the first nine laps of the race to restart third after the ninth-lap caution.

 

Driving the Roger McKeehan #4R, Franek caught Lucas Montgomery for the runner-up spot at the half-way point, and made his race-winning pass by polesitter and race-long leader Wyatt Hinkle three laps later. From there, he pulled away to a convincing 5.37-second win.

 

Hinkle crossed second, followed by Montgomery, Tyler Esh, and 12th-starting Jeff Halligan.

Rounding out the top ten were Brie Hershey, 22nd-starting Cole Young, Matt Campbell, 24th-starting Todd Rittenhouse, Jr., and 23rd-startng Jordan Givler.

 

Heats for the 40 358’s on hand were won by Troy Wagaman, Jr., Esh, Scott Fisher, and Hershey, with Chandler Leiby winning the consolation.

 

Aaron Ott ended a Lincoln win drought by winning the make-up 25-lap Mach 1 360/358 Challenge from 2014.

 

Front row starters Josh Weller and Jimmy Stitzel battled for the lead in the early going, with Weller leading lap one, Stitzel leading laps two and three, and Weller reclaiming the lead on lap four.

 

Ott made it a race between the yellow #25 cars after passing Stitzel for second on lap seven. Following the race’s final caution (a lap 12 caution for a spinning Mark Smith in turn one), Ott took the lead from Weller on the restart and drove away to a 4-second win, his first at Lincoln since 2011.

 

Weller crossed second, with Stitzel, Greg Hodnett, and Davie Franek rounding out the top five.
