FREDDIE RAHMER WINS WILD 410 SPRINT CAR FEATURE AT LINCOLN SPEEDWAY
(Click on headline link above for full story & results)

Shearer 12th different winner in 15 races in 358 sprints; Charlie Summers takes Dizzy Dean Memorial in Classic Cars

 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA – August 5, 2017 – Freddie Rahmer has struggled at Lincoln this year, but he had ‘em covered in scoring his second win of the year in the 25-lap feature for 410 sprint cars in the Pigeon Hills Saturday night.

 

“I just want to win,” said Rahmer upon exiting his Leffler Energy/Miller Brothers Chevrolet/Trans East Equipment #51 in victory lane, “I want more nights like tonight.”

 

Saturday was night number-one of the Lincoln/Susquehanna/Trail-Way tri-track “Shootout,” and a redraw for the front 12 cars placed Rahmer sixth for the start. He drove into the top five by the end of the second lap and passed Chad Trout for fourth a lap later. In the meantime, polesitter Gerard McIntyre, Jr. was leading the field.

 

Rahmer hung in fourth for the next 16 laps while Chase Dietz and Glenndon Forsythe battled for position chasing McIntyre for the race lead.

 

Dietz struck both the turn two and turn four walls several times and slowed on lap 19, just before the red flag waved for a four-car tangle in turns one and two that saw Scott Fisher roll onto his side. Dietz went to the pits during the red and did not return.

 

On the subsequent restart, Rahmer and Montieth lined up second and third, with Forsythe now fourth.

 

That led to a three-car battle for the lead, with Rahmer driving under McIntyre when McIntyre hopped the cushion in turn four of the 19th lap, allowing both Rahmer and Montieth to slip by. A caution flag flew a lap later, as the side panel on the front wing of Montieth became dislodged and landed on the backstretch. McIntyre slid back in front of Montieth on the restart and Montieth wrestled with his ill-handling car. Forsythe reclaimed third from Montieth on lap 23.

 

“They started to get free and I was waiting on lapped traffic,” said Rahmer, “I made my move when I had to on that restart. We’ve been fast at the Grove and on the big tracks, but we’ve struggled here a little. I need to stop worrying about the car and just drive.”

 

Crossing fifth behind Rahmer, McIntyre, Forsythe, and Montieth was ninth-starting Cory Haas, with Jim Siegel, Alan Krimes, Trout, Brandon Rahmer, and Tim Wagaman finishing sixth through tenth.

 

Heats for the 26 “410” Sprinters were won by Tyler Ross, Haas, and Montieth, with Tim Glatfelter winning the consolation.

 

Brent Shearer raced to his first win of the year and second career Lincoln win in the 20-lap “358” sprint car feature. He started sixth and caught polesitter and race-long leader Kody Hartlaub for the top spot on lap 13. He led the rest of the way, with 11th-starting Doug Hammaker coming on strong at the end to finish second. Hartlaub settled for third, followed by point leader Adrian Shaffer and Cody Fletcher.

 

Heats for the 27 “358” Sprinters were won by Todd Gracey, Jordan Givler, and Fletcher, with Steve Wilbur winning the consolation.

 

Charlie Summers was the winner of the 20-lap Dizzy Dean Memorial for Classic Cars. Summers started fourth, grabbed the lead from polesitter and race-long leader Neal Reamer on lap 13, and held Reamer off over the final seven laps.

 

Third through fifth were Wes Brown, Joe Brown, and Ron Grove.

 

Heats for the 12 Classic Racing Series cars were won by Joe Brown and Reamer.

MONTIETH COMES FROM 12TH TO WIN LINCOLN NON-STOP 410 SPRINT CAR FEATURE
(Click on headline link above for full story & results)

Halligan runs away from field in 358 sprints; Sagi claims first-ever Lincoln win in 358 late models

 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA – July 29, 2017 – Brian Montieth continues his climb to legendary status at Lincoln Speedway.  The latest feat was a win from 12th starting spot in a non-stop feature on Saturday night.

 

It included a thrilling three-car pass from fourth to first on lap 14.

 

Montieth entered the top five on lap nine as race-long leader Tyler Ross entered lapped traffic with a one and-a-half second lead over Brandon Rahmer.  Rahmer was side-by-side with Ross for the race lead as the two completed lap 13.  By that time, Montieth had advanced to fourth and was hot on the tail of third-place Chad Trout as all four raced nose-to-tail, side-by-side through lapped traffic.  Montieth split Trout and Rahmer to move into second on the backstretch, and then went to the top side to drive around Ross for the race lead in turns three and four.

 

“Traffic here is everything,” said Montieth in victory lane, “Everybody had a shot to do something, and I just had to do something different.”

 

Montieth pulled away over the final ten laps to score a 2.41-second win over fifth-starting Chase Dietz, who advanced several spots over the final laps to cross second.  Seventh starting Matt Campbell also came on strong at the end to finish third, with eighth-starting Chad Trout and Rahmer finishing fourth and fifth.

 

“It wasn’t a ‘gimme’ tonight.  I can’t say enough about this team,” said Montieth, “We’ve struggled all-year and we should have been here more than we have.  We made a lot of progress last weekend with the Outlaws.  Even though we didn’t do very well time trial and heat race-wise, we finally got on the right page and I hope this continues.”

 

“I think a lot of it is seat time,” added Montieth, “I’ve been racing here a lot longer than most of those guys that started up there.”

 

When reminded that his 55th career Lincoln win moved him to within one of the great Bobby Abel, Montieth said,

“That’s something that 30 years ago I would never even though of.  Thirty-five years ago I didn’t even know this place existed.  There are a lot of legends in this place, and over the years I’ve learned about them.”

 

Ross settled for sixth, with Jim Siegel, Alan Krimes, Gerard McIntyre, Jr., and Tim Glatfelter rounding out the top ten.

 

Heats for the 18 “410” Sprinters were won by Krimes and Cole Young.

 

Jeff Halligan started on the pole and dominated the 20-lap 358 sprint car feature event, opening night of the Lincoln/Trail-Way “Shootout” for 358 sprinters.  (Night #2 will be on September 1st at Trail-Way.)   His second Lincoln win of the year was by seven seconds over a wild three-car battle for the runner-up spot, with Troy Wagaman, Jr. coming from seventh starting spot to hold off point leader Adrian Shaffer and Steve Owings.  Todd Rittenhouse, Jr. was fifth.

 

Heats for the 30 “358” Sprinters were won by Wagaman, Jordan Givler, and Matt Findley, with Chandler Leiby winning the consolation.

 

Alan Sagi took the lead from polesitter Matt Murphy on the second lap and led the rest of the way for his first career Lincoln win in the 20-lap 358 late model feature.  And his win came on a big night, as the active Auto Racing Club of Hagerstown member won on ARCH Night.

 

Murphy, Drew Weisser, Randy Burkholder, and Precise Racing Products point series leader Travis Mease completed the top five.

 

Heats for the 29 “358” Late Models were won by Bruce Kane, Cam Zeigler, and Jeremy Miller, with Steve Lowery winning the consolation.

 

Lincoln is back in action next Saturday night, August 29th, with DCS School of Driving Night featuring the 410 Sprints (Night #1 of three-track “Shootout” series for 410 sprints), 358 Sprints and the Classic Racing Series. In addition, we will be having York Flooring KIDS BIG WHEEL RACES.

FORSYTHE PILOTS WISNER FAMILY #2W TO FOURTH CAREER WIN IN LINCOLN 410 SPRINTS
(Click on headline link above for full story & results)

Criswell cruises to super sportsman win; Chaney wins second straight in Central PA Legends

 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA – July 15, 2017 – York’s Glenndon Forsythe added his name to the 2017 Lincoln winner’s list by claiming the John Gleim Excavating 25-lap feature for 410 sprint cars on Saturday night. Handicapping placed Forsythe on the outside of Dwayne Gutshall on the front row for the start. He grabbed the lead entering the first turn and led every lap.

 

“Obviously, starting spot means a lot, but this is a brand new chassis tonight,” said Forsythe upon exiting the Wisner family Dynatech Controls/Livingston Lawn Care #2W in victory lane, “We struggled and struggled with the other one. Art’s not with us anymore, but we’re still using his set-ups. We appreciate everything he’s done for us. I want to dedicate this one to my buddy Jimmy Walker. We weren’t able to get it done in his car, but this one’s for you, buddy.”

 

Though he led the entire way, lapped traffic and handicapped cars coming up through the field closed the gap over the final laps. A lead of 5.63 seconds on lap 10 was cut to 2.06 seconds at the end. Steve Owings ran second the entire way.

 

“I knew we were setting a pretty good pace. I hooked the wall going into one the one lap, and struggled getting around the 69 car. Tim Glatfelter was getting around good, and I knew those other guys were going pretty good. Our pace was good, and I didn’t want to get too crazy and out of shape unless I saw somebody. I just needed to get back to the top and roll around there.”

 

Eleventh-starting Brian Montieth finished third after a lengthy battle with Cory Haas and Danny Dietrich over the second half of the race. Those three swapped spots several times, with Dietrich crossing fourth and Haas settling for fifth.

 

Sixth through tenth were Freddie Rahmer, Jim Siegel, Chase Dietz, Gerard McIntyre, Jr., and Gutshall.

 

Heats for the 24 “410” Sprinters were won by Dietz, McIntyre, and Forsythe.

 

Martinsville, West Virginia’s Chad Criswell raced to his third career Lincoln win in the 25-lap super sportsman feature. Criswell started fifth and got around Rich Eichelberger on lap three. He caught polesitter and race-long leader Frankie Herr for the lead on lap 11 and dominated the rest of the way, crossing 2.94 seconds ahead of Mike Enders, who got by Herr on lap 18.

 

Herr, Kenny Edkin, and Paul Miller completed the top five.

 

Heats for the 18 Super Sportsman were won by Russ Mitten and Criswell.

 

Mason Chaney started on the pole and led every lap of the 20-lap Central PA Legends feature despite race-long pressure from Bob Stough and late-race pressure from Scott Houdeshell and Harlon Leppo, who joined the chase but settled for third and fourth. Lucas Montgomery finished fifth.

 

It was Chaney’s second straight Lincoln win and the third of his Lincoln career.

 

Heats for the 30 Central PA Legends were won by Chaney, Stough, and Cody Haines, with Alex Robinson winning the consolation.

 

Lincoln Speedway will be dark next Saturday night, July 22nd with Williams Grove headlining the weekend action with the Annual Summer Nationals.

 

Lincoln will be back in action the following Saturday night, July 29th, with David Webb Tool Company Night AND ARCH Night featuring the 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints, and 358 Late Models. For the 358 Sprinters it will also be Night No.1 of the Lincoln Speedway/Trail-Way Speedway 358 Sprint Car “Shootout” with the Shootout finale at Trail-Way on Friday night, August 4th.

TODD GRACEY CLAIMS FIRST K1 RACE GEAR 358 SUMMER SERIES EVENT WITH LINCOLN WIN
(Click on headline link above for full story & results)

Travis McClelland wins All-American Outlaws feature; Richie Hitzler best of 600 Xcel Modifieds

 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA – July 8, 2017 – Todd Gracey was hoping to win one more race while he was still in his 40’s.

And he did, with just two days to spare.

 

And he picked a good one to win; the first K1 Race Gear Summer Series event of the year in Saturday’s 25-lap, $1,500 to win 358 sprint car feature at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

 

For most of the race, it looked like fifth-starting Jeff Halligan was going to run away from the field. Polesitter Kody Hartlaub paced the field for the first six laps. Halligan methodically worked his way to the front, driving around Gracey for third on the fifth lap, got by Kyle Abrahims for second on the sixth lap, and took the lead from Hartlaub on lap seven.

 

From there, Halligan was the class of the field, and opened up a straightaway lead before he caught lapped traffic on lap 11. He was working his way through heavy lapped traffic when disaster struck on lap 19. Brent Shearer and Kevin Nouse got together in turns one and two, with Shearer flipping and collecting Halligan in the process.

 

Hartlaub assumed the race lead for the restart, but a double-file restart put Gracey alongside Hartlaub. He took the lead at the drop of the green and led the rest of the way.

 

“Jeff (Halligan)’s bad luck turned the race over to me. I definitely wouldn’t have caught him,” said Gracey upon exiting the Evan Taylor/Blue Ribbon Exteriors #19G in victory lane, “I was trying to get to second, and I didn’t think I was going to get that far. With these double-file restarts, it’s actually benefits you if you’re running second or third. This is a 2004 car that we put back together. Seems like it works.”

 

A hard charging tenth-starting Chandler Leiby closed the gap over the final laps, but settled for second .68 seconds behind. Third through fifth were Tyler Ross (Halligan’s teammate for the night), 12th-starting Chase Dietz, and Scott Fisher.

 

Heats for the 41 “358” Sprints were won by Fisher, Hartlaub, Doug Hammaker, and Ross, with hard charger Adrian Shaffer (who advanced from 21st stating spot to finish tenth in the feature) winning the consolation.

 

Lebanon’s Richie Hirtzler held off Aaron Bowes to win the 20-lap feature for the visiting 600 Xcel modifieds. His final margin of victory over the only driver to ever win an Xcel race at Lincoln was .44 seconds, with Korey Inglin, early race leader Jon Josko (who led laps 2-16), and Steve Sterner completing the top five in a tightly-contested event between the top four.

 

Heats for the 21 600 Xcel Modifieds were won by Josko and Nathan Brinker.

 

Travis McClelland completed a perfect night by racing to the win in the 20-lap All-American Outlaw feature.

McClelland led the first lap from the pole, yielded to outside front row starter Tim Fake for the next seven laps, then reclaimed the top spot for good on lap nine. Fake settled for second, with Jeff McCauley, Jim Minter, and Danny Holmes rounding out the top five.

 

Heats for the 11 All-American Outlaws were won by McClelland and Gary Moreland, Sr.

 

Lincoln Speedway is back in action next Saturday, July 15th, with the Annual JOHN GLEIM JR. EXCAVATING NIGHT featuring the 410 Sprints, Super Sportsman, and Central PA Legends. Gates will open at 5:30 PM, with racing scheduled to begin at 7:30 PM.

LARSON WOWS HUGE CROWD WITH “BAD ASS WIN” IN PENNSYLVANIA SPEEDWEEK SHOW AT LINCOLN SPEEDWAY
(Click on headline link above for full story & results)

Steve Wilbur claims first sprint car win in 358s, becomes 11th winner in 12 races so far this year

 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA – July 3, 2017 – NASCAR Monster Energy points leader Kyle Larson made it official in Monday night’s Pennsylvania Speedweek show at Lincoln Speedway. There is NOTHING he can’t do in a race car.

 

“I’ve now won in Central PA! This is bad ass!!” exclaimed Larson following a wing dance in victory lane, “Last night (at Path Valley) was my style of track and tonight wasn’t, so this is awesome to get the win in front of a huge crowd here. I thank all of you for coming out.”

 

Time trials and a four-car inversion for the feature placed NASCAR stars Kasey Kahne and Larson beside each other on row five for the start. Larson quickly went to the top and to the front, advancing to fourth by the end of the third lap.

He caught Trey Starks for third a lap later, took second from third-starting Alan Krimes on lap six, and then made his race-winning move around polesitter and race-long leader Lucas Wolfe.

 

“I couldn’t believe the top was that good. I’ve watched so many videos of Krimes here cruising around the bottom, so I knew I was going to have move down eventually,” said Larson, “I wasn’t very good down there, and I could hear him right behind me. I had to make sure I didn’t miss my marks too bad and slip up off the bottom for him to get underneath me.”

 

Krimes, who pressured Larson over the second half of the race after catching Wolfe for second on lap 14, settled for second, .34-seconds behind the winner. Third through fifth were outside front row starter Dale Blaney, Wolfe, and Starks. Sixth through tenth were 13th-starting Danny Dietrich, PA Speedweek points leader Freddie Rahmer (who came from 17th), Tim Glatfelter, Gerard McIntyre, Jr., and 19th-starting Cory Haas.

 

“It’s been a heck of-a-year for me. Every time I get on the track on Sundays I feel like I have a shot to win. This is five winged sprint car wins in a row. And especially a win here at Lincoln. This is a tough place. They kicked my butt here the couple times I’ve been here. I’m really excited to win for all you fans.”

 

“I wish we could go full-time racing, but Sundays kinda take up my time,” quipped Larson, “Someday we’ll do this again full time and I’m looking forward to it!”

 

Heats for the sprints were won by Starks, Wolfe, Brian Montieth (who spun out while running fifth on lap 17 of the feature and was scored 24th), Glatfelter, with Ryan Smith (subbing for Doug Esh in the Mark Coldren #07) winning the B-Main.

 

Fast time in time trials was set by TJ Stutts over the 42-car field with a one-lap time of 13.684-seconds (98.655 MPH).

 

Steve Wilbur started on the front row and led every lap for his first Lincoln “358”sprint car win. He became the 11th different winner in 12 races in the Pigeon Hills this year.

 

Ryan Higgins and C.J. Tracy ran second and third the entire way, with Jeff Halligan and Doug Hammaker completing the top five. Brie Hershey slowed to a stop on the backstretch while running fourth on lap 11.

 

Heats for the 31 358 Sprints were won by Trey Hivner, Kyle Abrahims, Wilbur, and Troy Wagaman, Jr., with Phil Walter winning the consolation.

DANNY DIETRICH HOLDS OFF DEWEASE AND ABREU FOR LINCOLN PENNSYLVANIA SPEEDWEEK WIN
(Click on headline link above for full story & results)

Mason Chaney winner of Central PA Legends feature

 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA – July 1, 2017 – Danny Dietrich continued to impress in Saturday night’s Pennsylvania Speedweek show at Lincoln Speedway, claiming the $7,000 to prize in the 18th Annual Kevin Gobrecht Memorial for 410 sprint cars.

 

Time trials, qualifying, and an inversion of “6” for the feature placed Dietrich alongside Freddie Rahmer on the outside of of row two for the start.

 

Outside front row starter Trey Starks led the first ten laps before polesitter Rico Abreu took over on lap 11. Dietrich charged by both Starks and Abreu for the lead on lap 12. Though he led the rest of the way in the non-stop 30 lap feature, he had to deal with a closing Lance Dewease over the final eight laps. Dewease, who started sixth, moved into second with eight laps to go, and actually pulled inside Dietrich in heavy lapped traffic on turns three and four of lap 24. But Dietrich shut the door exiting the turn and pulled away to a .75-second victory at the end, his second win in a row, sixth Lincoln win of the year, and 37th of his career in the Pigeon Hills.

 

“That was pretty good show,” said Dietrich in victory lane after completing the 30-lap event in eight minutes, 10.303 seconds, “I wasn’t really good there at the end. I thought Lance was definitely going to catch me. I think I saw him one time. I started to play defense. I don’t like playing defense, but I’m glad to be standing here.”

 

“Hats off to this crew back here…Tony, Jake, Jordan, and Tyler…they bust their butts all week long,” continued Dietrich, “I wasn’t in the shop much with other things going on, and it feels good to be standing here again. I’m not sure I had a fast car at the end. We have to get working on the end of the race a little bit.”

 

Dewease settled for second, with Abreu, James McFadden, and Speedweek point leader Freddie Rahmer rounding out the top five. Sixth through tenth were 11th-starting Alan Krimes, 13th-starting Brandon Rahmer, Lucas Wolfe, Matt Campbell, and Starks.

 

Heats for the sprints were won by Dewease, Starks, Abreu, and Greg Hodnett, with Chad Trout winning the B-Main. Fast time in time trials was set by Dewease over the 42-car field with a one-lap time of 13.468-seconds (100.238 MPH).

 

Mason Chaney held off Lucas Montgomery by a half car-length to score his second career Lincoln win in the 20-lap Central PA Legends feature. Chaney started third and grabbed the lead from polesitter and race-long leader Chris Transeau on lap three. He led the rest of the way despite heavy late-race pressure from Montgomery, crossing .19 seconds ahead of Montgomery at the finish.

 

Third through fifth were Hayden Pascoe, Transeau, and Travis Perry.

 

Heats for the 31 Central PA Legends were won by Transeau, Perry, and Chaney, with Scott Haudeshell winning the consolation.

 

Lincoln Speedway is back in action this Monday night, July 3rd, with night 4 of the scheduled Speedweek series. Night 4 of the series will have the 410 sprinters going after the $5,000 winner’s check. The 358 Sprinters will round out the evening’s action.

Arnold first repeat winner in “358” sprints; Cullum two-for-two in All American Outlaws

 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA – June 24, 2017 – It was a big night for the Dietrich family in a thriller Saturday at Lincoln Speedway.

 

In the end, Danny Dietrich claimed his fifth win of the year over brother Billy and Freddie Rahmer in a three-car battle that went down to the finish.

 

“That was freakin’ awesome! That’s some good racing there, ain’t it?,” said Dietrich after scoring his 36th career Lincoln win, “I used the wall to not run into somebody else, so we’re glad to be standing here.”

 

The winner started ninth, with brother Billy starting fourth, and Freddie Rahmer starting sixth. Polesitter Tim Glatfelter grabbed the lead at the drop of the green was immediately challenged by Billy.

 

The red flag came out on lap five when points leader Brian Montieth spun in turns three and four, collecting Jim Siegel and Matt Campbell, who rolled onto his side. Those three were battling for seventh place at the time. That was the only break in the 25-lap event, with Billy Dietrich claiming the lead from Glatfelter on the restart.

 

Freddie Rahmer got by Glatfelter for second on lap eight, and Danny Dietrich moved past Glatfelter to enter the top three on lap ten. That set up a 15-lap battle for the lead through lapped traffic which saw Rahmer and Danny swap second several times. Danny officially took over the runner-up spot on lap 15, with Rahmer reclaiming second on lap 17. Danny reclaimed second on 19, and began to pressure brother Billy.

 

He drove around Billy with a slider on lap 22, and led the rest of the way, finishing 1.47 seconds ahead of Billy, with Freddie crossing a close third.

 

“I drove harder than everybody else,” said Dietrich, “My brother ran hard, too. It looked like he just went away at the end. He was so good early and took the lead from Freddie. We just caught up the last five laps. The car got free and we could run the top. I was running the bottom early on, and thought I was pretty good around there. I was hoping it was still there at the end, and it was. Once I got the lead, I moved back to the bottom and was hoping that no one could take the long way around me.”

 

11th-starting Kyle Moody finished fourth, and Cory Haas completed a spectacular run to come from 22nd starting spot to finish fifth. Sixth through tenth were Glatfelter, Campbell (returning from the early-race crash), Gerard McIntyre, Jr., Tyler Ross, and Chad Trout.

 

Heats for the 23 “410” Sprints were won by Campbell, Montieth, and Glatfelter.

 

Dillsburg’s Chris Arnold came from 12th starting spot to score his second win in a row and become the first repeat winner in 11 feature events in the 20-lap “358” sprint car feature.

 

Arnold was already up to fifth by the end of the fourth lap, got around both Todd Gracey and Brie Hershey to move into third on lap eight, caught Matt Findley for second on lap 11, and then took the lead from polesitter and race-long leader Jake Eldreth on lap 12. Brie Hershey and Findley got together while battling for third on lap 15, but Eldreth couldn’t catch Arnold over the final six laps, crossing one full second behind for the runner-up spot.

 

In a late-race charge, Chase Dietz (driving the Roger McKeehan #4R) advanced to third at the finish, with C.J. Tracy and Ashley Cappetta crossing fourth and fifth.

 

Heats for the 30 “358” Sprints were won by Findley, Tracy, and Gracey, with Troy Wagaman, Jr. winning the consolation.

 

Justin Cullum came from ninth starting spot to win the 20-lap All American Outlaw feature event. He advanced quickly through the field and caught race-long leader Jim Minter for the lead on lap nine. He crossed 1.03 seconds ahead of eventual runner-up Jeff McCauley, with Randy Doty, John Holmes, and Joe Davis rounding out the top five.

 

Minter pulled up lame late in the race, ending his night.

 

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