13TH ANNUAL WELDON STERNER MEMORIAL RESCHEDULED TO JULY 9TH

Entire April 30th show to be run in its entirety

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 5/2/2016 – Following Saturday night’s aborted attempt to run the 13th Annual Weldon Sterner Memorial, Lincoln Speedway promoters tried to accommodate the race teams schedule when coming up with the original May 10th reschedule date.

But after a couple days of getting feedback from the race teams, the promoters have decided to change the date and re-run the entire show on July 9th.

 

“The original decision to run the remainder of the show on May 10th was based entirely with the race teams in mind,” said Lincoln Speedway promoter Alan Kreitzer. “We got a lot of feedback from the teams following the announced make-up date and it became clear that the mid-week May 10th date would place undue burden on the teams and their schedules.”

 

With the teams and upcoming schedule in mind, Lincoln Speedway promoters have decided to reschedule the show in its entirety to Saturday, July 9th. This date originally had all three divisions from the April 30th Sterner Memorial show - the 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints and All American Outlaws – returning to the Pigeon Hills oval. So it was decided to take advantage of the schedule the race teams had already made plans for.

 

In summary, the original April 30th show will now be considered a complete rain-out and re-run in its entirety on July 9th. All rain checks from Saturday night’s April 30th show will be honored for one of the next three Lincoln Speedway shows, or, the July 9th Sterner Memorial make-up date.

 

The one-lap track record set by Greg Hodnett over the 29-car field of 12.577-seconds (107.339 MPH) on Saturday night’s rain-out will still stand.

 

Reminder, this weekend, Saturday, May 7th, it will be APPLE AUTOMOTIVE NIGHT, along with Dover Elementary Night,  featuring the 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints and Street Stocks. Racing gets underway at 7:30 PM, with gates opening at 5:30 PM.

RAIN POSTPONES 13TH ANNUAL WELDON STERNER MEMORIAL
(Click on headline link above for full story & results)

COMPLETION OF SHOW SLATED FOR TUESDAY, MAY 10TH

 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 4/30/2016 – The predicted rain arrived two hours early Saturday night, forcing “410” sprint cars running the consolation event off the track and forcing promoters to postpone the remainder of the 13th Annual Weldon Sterner Memorial until Tuesday, May 10th.

 

The mid-week show will pick up where it left off, completing the final four laps of the 410 sprint consolation and the 358 sprint car consolation before completion of the features for the two sprint divisions and the All-American Outlaws.

 

Lincoln promoters have announced that rain checks from Saturday’s show will be honored the next three shows or for the Sterner Memorial make-up night on May 10th.  Fans who do not have a rain check from Saturday will be able see the May 10th show at a reduced cost of $12 admission (and $5 for students).  Gates will open at 6 PM, with warm-ups at 7:30 PM, and racing getting underway at 8 PM.

 

Before the rains came, heat races for the 410 sprints were won by Greg Hodnett, Jim Siegel, and Robbie Kendall, with six laps completed in the consolation.

 

Earlier in the evening, fast time in time trials for the 29-car field was set by Greg Hodnett with a new one-lap track record time of 12.577-seconds (107.339 MPH). In fact, the fastest three cars eclipsed the old track record of 12.719 seconds held by Lucas Wolfe from 2015.

 

Hodnett drew a 4-pill for the inversion, putting Danny Dietrich and Alan Krimes on the front row for the May 10th show, with Brandon Rahmer and Hodnett to start on row two.

Heats for the 31 358 sprints were won by Cody Fletcher, Steve Storie, and Kyle Denmyer, with a consolation event still to come on May 10th.

DIETRICH SEVENTH DIFFERENT WINNER IN SEVEN 2016 “410” SPRINT RACES AT LINCOLN
(Click on headline link above for full story & results)

HAMMAKER TAKES HOLDS OFF HALLIGAN TO CLAIM “358” SPRINT CAR FEAURE

CHANEY, STOUGH WIN CENTRAL PA LEGENDS FEATURES

 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 4/23/2016 – Danny Dietrich shook off some early season bad luck in scoring his first win of the year in the 25-lap “410” sprint car feature at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

 

“We’ve been pretty fast, we just haven’t had any luck. This (Lincoln) is where we’ve been struggling the most,” said Dietrich upon exiting his Sandoe’s Fruit Market/Hickory Run Orchards/Weikert’s Livestock #48 in victory lane, “We got lucky and started at a good spot. We were pretty good. I don’t know how fast we really were, because when you get out front like that…you just don’t know how fast Austin (Hogue) is. Austin has had a heck-of-a car all year here and he’s a contender every night we come here.”

 

Dietrich moved up a row and started fourth when outside polesitter J.J. Grosso was not able to fire the car for the feature.

 

Polesitter Kyle Moody to the lead at the start and led the first four laps before Dietrich drove by on the backstretch after a fifth-lap restart.

 

He led the rest of the way, but could never shake Hogue, crossing just .72 seconds ahead.

 

“The other guys are picking up the pace and getting fast and I just wasn’t real comfortable yet,” said Dietrich, “We’ve been hindered so much that I quit looking at the gauges. I’m just trying to put it all behind me and trying to get by. There’s been pretty much pressure on me here, and it’s really good for this team to finally park it on the front stretch.”

 

Third through fifth were Jim Siegel (who moved into the Lincoln points lead after advancing from seventh starting spot), Robbie Kendall, and tenth-starting Adam Wilt.

 

Completing the top ten were Gerard McIntyre, Jr., 13th-starting Freddie Rahmer, Moody, Tim Glatfelter, and 16th-starting Steve Owings.

 

Heats for the 30 410 sprints were won by Brian Montieth (who flipped in turn while running ninth on lap 12 of the feature and was credited with 23rd), Glatfelter, and Danny Dietrich, with Brandon Rahmer winning the consolation.

 

Last week’s winner Tyler Ross was the other feature flip victim, rolling over in turn four of lap 15.

 

Defending Central PA and Lincoln champion Doug Hammaker claimed his first Lincoln win of the year in the 20-lap “358” sprint car feature.

 

Hammaker started fifth and snatched the lead from Jeff Halligan in lapped traffic in turns three and four of lap 11, then held off a late-race charge by Halligan at the end. It was Hammaker’s fifth career Lincoln win, and he became the fourth winner in four 358 events this season.

 

Third through fifth were 11th-starting Jeff Rohrbaugh, 13th-starting Adrian Shaffer, and tenth-starting Chandler Leiby. Rounding out the top ten were polesitter C.J. Tracy (who led the first lap), Matt Findley, Matt Campbell, Cody Fletcher, and Phil Walter.

 

Heats for the 30 358 sprints were won by Halligan, Fletcher, and Campbell, with Tyler Esh winning the consolation.

 

Mason Chaney got what he always wanted, his first career Lincoln win, in the 20-lap make-up feature for the Central PA Legends, and event postponed by high winds and rain on April 2nd.

 

Outside front row starter Nathan Ottensmeyer led the first lap before fourth-starting Scott Houdeshell took over on lap two. Fifth-starting Chaney, who has been attending Lincoln events since childhood, took the lead from Houdeshell on lap 16 and took the checkered 2.8 seconds ahead of Houdeshell.

 

Third through fifth were 19th-starting Bill Diehl, Chad Earnst, and Chris Transeau.

 

In the regularly-scheduled feature, Bob Stough came out on top in a four-car battle for the lead to score his fourth career Lincoln win. One of the four, Lucas Montgomery, ran out of fuel on the final lap. The other two drivers were Earnst in second and Chaney in third.

 

Completing the top five were Bill Diehl and Houdeshell.

 

Heats for the 28 Legends were won by Mason Chaney (who established an 8-lap track record of 2:44.50 in his qualifier), Diehl, and Harlon Leppo.

TYLER ROSS SCORES CAREER FIRST IN LINCOLN 410 SPRINT CAR FEATURE
(Click on headline link above for full story & results)

Campbell comes from eighth to score first win of the year in 358 sprints;

Kyle Lear also wins first in 358 late models

 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 4/16/2016 – “This is unbelievable. I need someone to pinch me right now.”

 

So said Tyler Ross after scoring his first career win in the 410 sprint car feature at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

 

Points handicapping placed Ross on the outside of the front row for the start, but he dropped to fourth by the end of the first lap. He recovered to pass Robbie Kendall for third on lap two, and then reclaimed second from Austin Hogue on a lap 11 restart, following a caution for Danny Dietrich, who stopped in turn four after bouncing off the wall in turns one and two.

 

He chased polesitter and race-long leader Tim Glatfelter for the next four laps before grabbing the lead from Trone Outdoor/Eagle Steel #39 on a lap 16 restart.

 

He led the rest of the way in non-stop racing over the final ten laps, crossing 1.87 seconds ahead of a closing Alan Krimes, who advanced from tenth starting spot to finish second.

 

 “I wasn’t sure it was going to happen, especially this early in the season,” said Ross, “This is only our third time here this year, so to be this fast this early I’m excited to see how the rest of the season goes.”

 

Glatfelter, Hogue, and Kendall completed the top five, with Jim Siegel, Gerard McIntyre, Jr., Brian Montieth, Cory Haas, and Danny Dietrich rounding out the top ten.

 

“I gotta thank my dad (Sam). He works his tail off all week long in getting this thing ready,” added Ross, “We’ve got a lot of good help this year. I want to thank Rick Lefever from Lefever Electric (prime sponsor). He couldn’t make it tonight. We’ll have to give him a call here.”

 

“This is my third year here, and I finally learned to get the wing back,” added Ross, “I got a lot of bite coming off the bottom on the restarts, and that helped me get into the corners.

 

Heats for the 27 410 sprints were won by Danny Dietrich, McIntyre, and Ross, with Billy Dietrich winning the consolation.

 

Fawn Grove’s Matt Campbell came from eighth starting spot to claim the win in the 20-lap “358” sprint car feature.

 

Wyatt Hinkle led the first two laps from the pole before sixth-starting Tyler Esh drove around him into the race lead on lap three. Meanwhile, Campbell followed him into second on the fifth lap before running him down at the half-way point. Campbell led the rest of the way through heavy lapped traffic, crossing 1.47 seconds ahead of Esh, with tenth-starting Adrian Shaffer, Matt Findley, and Jeff Rohrbaugh completing the top five.

 

Heats for the 31 358 sprints were won by Shaffer, Brie Hershey, and Kyle Denmyer, with Chandler Leiby winning the consolation.

 

Kyle Lear scored his first career Lincoln win in the Precise Racing Products three-track series opener for 358 late models. Lear started on the pole and raced side-by-side with outside front row starter Sam Gallagher for the first two laps, with Gallagher leading lap one and Lear scored the leader of lap two.

 

Lear controlled the pace the rest of the way, despite late-race heat from Ralph Morgan, Jr., who pulled alongside Lear racing off the final turns to the checkered flag.

 

Third through fifth were Gallagher, Randy Christine, Jr., and Shaun Jones.

 

Heats for the 23 358 late models were won by Lear, Gallagher, and Christine.

FREDDIE RAHMER FIFTH WINNER IN FIVE ’16 RACES ON A BIZARRE NIGHT AT LINCOLN

(Click on headline link above for full story & results)
Rohrbaugh becomes all-time Lincoln 358 sprint winner in rain-shortened event

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 4/2/2016 – On a bizarre night that saw the three leaders all drop from the field on the same lap, Freddie Rahmer assumed the lead and held off Cory Haas and Gerard McIntyre for his second career win at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

 

Rahmer started eighth and was running fourth when brother Brandon and Adam Wilt got together and both spun in turn two of lap 20. At the same time, third-place Austin Hogue went up in smoke and headed to the infield, ending his night.

 

 “I don’t know what happened to my brother there,” said Rahmer in victory lane, “It’s a shame for him…he was running good laps. I got into a rhythm there about half-way through. I got by Hogue and then messed up, got back by him….and that won the race because we lost those cars.”

 

Brandon Rahmer started on the pole and led every lap up until his misfortune on lap 20. Wilt had started tenth and was on Brandon’s bumper when the two leaders spun.

 

The anticipated drive from mid-pack up through the field by former champ Danny Dietrich and defending champ Brian Montieth ended abruptly on lap two when they were caught up in a chain-reaction crash which started with Brandon Rahmer almost into the wall while leading in turn two. Rahmer came down across the track and collected JJ Grasso, but Rahmer never stopped and, in the confusion, both Dietrich and Montieth tangled into the back stretch guardrail, ending both racers’ night.

 

 “I’m glad to win, but I wish Brandon had a good finish,” said Rahmer, “I want to thank Moon (Byers) for getting the car really good and Don Ott for the good engines. Leffler Energy has come on board as a sponsor, and Miller Brothers and A.R.A.N. Trading are also good sponsors. I think these guys know they gotta race me now.”

 

Haas crossed 1.47 seconds behind Rahmer, with McIntyre third. Alan Krimes (who started 15th) and Glenndon Forsythe (who started 13th) completed the top five. Sixth through tenth were 16th-starting Robbie Kendall, 19th-starting Jim Siegel, Billy Dietrich, Scott Fisher, and 20th-starting Tyler Ross.

 

Both of Rahmer’s Lincoln wins came after advancing from fourth to first on the same lap. Last time, it was a late 2015 event in which Rahmer came from fourth to first in wild last-lap racing.

 

Heats for the 28 410 sprints were won by Grasso, Montieth, and Danny Dietrich, with Siegel winning the consolation.

 

The “358” sprint car feature was no less bizarre, with polesitter Adrian Shaffer leading the first 13 laps before spinning around exiting turn four, handing the lead over to Jeff Rohrbaugh. Despite the spin, Shaffer was able to complete the ‘360’ and hang on to second.

 

Four laps later, the predicted high winds and rain arrived, ending the event after 17 laps.

 

With his 14th career win, Rohrbaugh became the all-time winningest 358 driver at Lincoln.

 

Third through fifth behind runner-up Shaffer were Kyle Denmyer, Chandler Leiby, and Cody Fletcher.

 

Heats for the 31 358 sprints were won by Rohrbaugh, Leiby, and Wyatt Hinkle (who scratched from the feature event), with Troy Wagaman, Jr. winning the consolation.

 

The sudden wind and rain forced postponement of the 20-lap Central PA Legends feature. That event will be made up when the Legends return on April 23rd.

Heats for the 20 Legends were won by Harlon Leppo and Chad Earnst.

KAHNE SCORES FIRST CAREER LINCOLN WIN IN 410 SPRINT SPRING CHAMPIONSHIP

Chris Arnold holds off Matt Campbell to claim season opener for 358 sprints

 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 3/26/16 – NASCAR star Kasey Kahne showed ‘em how it’s done at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

 

Kahne, making a rare appearance in the Pigeon Hills, made the most of his weekend off by out-dragging Lincoln point leader and polesitter Brian Montieth to the first turn and leading every lap of Lincoln’s $5,000-to-win Spring Championship for 410 sprint cars.

 

Despite mid-race challenges from Montieth, Kahne crossed the finish line of the non-stop 30-lap race 1.25 seconds ahead of Lincoln’s point leader.

 

 “I think I saw Montieth on the inside off of turn four lap about halfway, so I went to the bottom for a couple of laps. I just didn’t feel like I was slowing down quite enough on the exit of four, so I went back to the top and then cutting to the middle and I felt better doing that. The lapped cars were quick, too. They start them back there, but there was nowhere to go, and they’re tough to pass.”

 

Kahne drove flawlessly through lapped traffic from lap ten on, and the strong field of sprinters all finished the race.

 

“It feels good to get a win,” said Kahne in front of a delirious crowd, “Lincoln Speedway is a tough track and Pennsylvania is a tough group of racers. It’s a great crowd for early in the season. It’s great to be here Easter weekend.”

 

 “We had a great car, and kept making it better. Factory Kahne shocks were really hooked up,” continued Kahne, “I don’t get a chance to thank the sponsors that support my World of Outlaw teams, but we have Great Clips, Sage Fruit, Ollie’s Bargain Outlet, and Razerback Professional Tools. Rob Cappetta right here in Pennsylvania builds the best engines, and Ti22 Chassis. It’s a big group that puts a lot into it. And Lee Stauffer from PA (crew chief for Brad Sweet) was here to help out tonight.”

 

“We picked up a lot of speed in the last six months. My car is set up similar to Sweet and Daryn Pittman’s cars, and it was pretty quick tonight. It’s great to be able to lean on those guys. I talked to Daryn on the phone today. He’s done really well at this place. I got a good group of guys and it’s really good to win.”

 

“It feels good to get a win,” said Kahne, “I’m really happy with the crowd that came out. What Lincoln does with the Dirt Classic each year is really cool.”

 

Kahne started on the outside pole after timing third fastest and Lucas Wolfe drew a number four pill for the inversion at the front of the field.

 

Montieth ran second the entire way, with Wolfe crossing third and seventh-starting Danny Dietrich and Ryan Smith completing the top five. Rounding out the top ten were Freddie Rahmer, Adam Wilt, Jim Siegel, Cory Haas, and 18th-starting JJ Grasso rounding out the top ten.

 

Fast time in time trials over the 29 sprinters was set by Wolfe with a one-lap time of 13.132 seconds (102.802 MPH). Heats for the 410 sprints were won by Montieth, Wilt, and Danny Dietrich, with Billy Dietrich winning the consolation.

 

Dillsburg’s Chris Arnold ended a battle royale with Matt Campbell to score the opening night win in the 358 sprint car feature.

 

Arnold started on the outside of the front row and led the firsts 13 laps before third-starting Matt Campbell took the lead in wheel-to-wheel racing from laps 14 to 17. But Arnold was not to be denied, dropping to the inside to reclaim the lead on turn four of lap 18. He held Campbell off over the final two laps to claim the win by a carlength.

 

Third through fifth were Adrian Shaffer, polesitter David Holbrook, and Troy Wagaman, Jr.

 

Heats for the 32 “358” sprints were won by Campbell, Doug Hammaker, and Arnold, with Tyler Esh winning the consolation.

 

Defending Lincoln champ Hammaker was caught up in a five-car front stretch crash in the third attempt to start the race, and was credited with a 21st place finish.
