DIETZ OUTRUNS DIETRICHS FOR SECOND CAREER LINCOLN 410 SPRINT CAR WIN
(Click on headline link above for full story & results)

Mitten claims fourth career Lincoln Super Sportsman victory; Stough comes from 12th to win Central PA Legends

 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 7/16/2016 –Chase Dietz outran the Dietrichs to pick up his first win of the year in his family-owned #2D in 25 laps of torrid 410 sprint car racing at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

 

“I’m out of breath. Holy crap!” exclaimed Dietz after exiting the Haas Shocks/Godfrey Racing sprinter in victory lane, “We were okay. We weren’t the fastest, but the way the track was, we just had to be up there and wheel it.”

 

Dietz started third and ran there behind leader Billy Dietrich and polesitter Tim Wagaman for the first eight laps. The lone red then came out for Dwayne Gutshall, who did a soft roll after getting sideways in turn two.

 

“It just worked out for us. I got by Timmy and that red came out,” said Dietz, “I didn’t get a good restart, and Robbie (Kendall) got me and I got him back. I was like ‘Man, I gotta get back up the wheel real quick.’

 

“I was staying with Bill. I would gain and then lose and I figured once we got to lapped traffic it was time to get going and make my move. It worked out to our favor. I knew from Billy’s standpoint I wouldn’t want to be in the same position because you’re kinda vulnerable out there. He had a good run and has had some bad luck. It was a fun race for sure.”

 

Dietz finally drove around Dietrich exiting turn two in heavy lapped traffic of lap 21. The two were side-by-side at the end of the lap, but Dietz didn’t take control until exiting turn two of lap 22. From there, he drove away to his second career Lincoln win, with Billy and 12th-starting Danny Dietrich crossing second and third. Completing the top five were Kendall and Tyler Ross.

 

“This has been a really tough season for us. We get here when we can,” said Dietz, “It’s a family-owned team and there are a ton of people I can’t thank enough that even allow me to be here. Troy Godfrey has poured his heart and soul into me right now and supplies the car for me to even be able to get out here. My grandpa has given us a motor to run. What we have sitting here is what we got, and that’s it. But we come here to win.”

 

Sixth through tenth were Gerard McIntyre, Jr., Freddie Rahmer, points leader Alan Krimes, Brian Montieth, and Adam Wilt.

 

Heats for the 34 410 Sprints were won by McIntyre, Dietz, Cory Haas, and Billy Dietrich, with Frankie Herr winning the consolation.

 

Newville’s Russ Mitten, now in his 27th year of racing, ended a month-long dry spell by claiming his fourth career Lincoln win in the 25-lap super sportsman feature. Mitten started third and took the top spot away from polesitter and race-long leader Gregg Foster on lap seven. He dominated the rest of the way, taking the checkered 2.15 seconds ahead of Foster, with Doug Dodson, 11th-starting Mike Enders, and Scott Geesey rounding out the top five.

 

Heats for the 25 Super Sportsman were won by Dodson, Kenny Edkin, and Scott Dellinger.

 

Bob Stough came from 12th starting spot to score his sixth career Lincoln win in the 20-lap main event for the Central PA Legends. Stough was passing a car a lap in the late going, and drove around both Lucas Montgomery and leader Mason Chaney as the three crossed under the flag stand with two laps to go. Chaney settled for second, with Chad Earnst, Montgomery, and Harlon Leppo completing the top five.

 

Heats for the 30 Central PA Legends were won by Leppo, Justin Mitchell, and Reed Salony, with Tony Mrakovich winning the consolation.

HODNETT CLAIMS 13TH ANNUAL WELDON STERNER MEMORIAL, KRIMES WINS FIRST NIGHT OF LINCOLN/TRAIL-WAY/SUSQUEHANNA 410 SPRNT SHOOTOUT
(Click on headline link above for full story & results)

Trey Hivner scores first career 358 sprint car win; Fred Cullum All-American Outlaw victor

 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 7/9/2016 – Greg Hodnett added to his Central PA point series lead with his fourth Lincoln of the year and Alan Krimes scored his first checkered flag of the year and 17th career Lincoln win in the high-paying Pigeon Hills sprint car double features Saturday night.

 

STERNER MEMORIAL COMPLETION

Hodnett picked up where he left off back on April 30th in claiming the $6,900 top prize in the 33-lap Weldon Sterner Memorial for 410 sprinters. The northeast’s leading feature winner started fourth after drawing the four-pill for the inversion at the front of the field.

 

Polesitter Danny Dietrich led the first 16 laps from the pole before his motor went sour. Hodnett slid under the Sandoe’s Fruit Market/Hickory Run Orchards/Weikert’s Livestock #48 exiting turn four of lap 17, and drove away to a 1.34-second win.

 

“We knew that with Danny starting up front, he was going to be really tough. He’s been tough here all year. We were just fortunate enough to squeak on by,” said Hodnett after scoring his 17th overall win of 2016, “We can’t complain at all about this year. We come out and do the best we can every night, and fortunately for us, the crew keeps plugging away and giving me really good race cars. Again, I’m not the most comfortable here at Lincoln, but they give me really good race cars and even I can win I guess.”

 

Dietrich crossed second, followed by Alan Krimes, Freddie Rahmer, and Lucas Wolfe. Sixth through tenth were 11th-starting Brian Montieth, Ryan Smith, Brandon Rahmer, Jim Siegel, and Robbie Kendall.

 

Heats for the originally scheduled April 30th Sterner Memorial were won by Hodnett, Siegel, and Kendall. Fast time in time trials over the 29-car field on April 30th was Hodnett in the lelands.com/Trone Outdoor Advertising #27, who set a new one-lap track record time of 12.577-seconds (107.339 MPH). That same April 30th night, the fastest three cars had eclipsed the old track record of 12.719 seconds held by Lucas Wolfe from 2015.


REGULARLY SCHEDULED SHOW

Alan Krimes took home the $4,000 winner’s share after winning the regularly-scheduled show, which was night number-one of the Lincoln/Trail-Way/Susquehanna 410 Sprint Car Shootout.

 

Ryan led the first 23 laps from his pole position, before the Wayne Corini CPA/Abe Service Company #87 slid under Smith for the race-winning pass in heavy lapped traffic exiting turns three and four of the 24th lap.

 

“I saw Hodnett was making up ground on the bottom, and I figured it was going to lay rubber sometime during the feature,” said the 2014 Lincoln champ and current points leader in victory lane, “It was just a matter of moving down at the right time and finding it. Adam was down there, too, and we were running the 94 down. Those two guys got to racing and that’s what I needed. They slid each other and I could really gain on them when they were doing that. I finally got him after the caution came out.”

 

“Ryan’s a good racer and he moved down and got away from me a little bit,” said Krimes, “But when we got lapped cars, he tried to go around one of them and I was close enough with a real small strip of rubber there. He missed it and started humming, and that was opening I needed to sneak back by him.”

 

Krimes pulled away from Smith to take the checkered flag 1.44 seconds ahead of the Warko #94. Third through fifth were Hodnett, Adam Wilt, and Danny Dietrich.

 

Rounding out the top ten were Cory Haas, Tim Wagaman, Freddie Rahmer, Jim Siegel, and Scott Fisher.

 

Heats for the 32 410 Sprints on hand for the regularly scheduled show were won by Haas, Smith, Krimes, and Gerard McIntyre, Jr. winning the consolation.

Fast time in time trials for the regularly scheduled show was set again by Hodnett with a one-lap time of 13.433-seconds (100.499 MPH).

 

358 SPRINTS

For the fourth time this year, Lincoln saw a first-time 358 sprint car career winner, as rookie Trey Hivner of Hanover grabbed the lead from polesitter and race-long leader Brian Allman on lap 15 and score the 1.69-second win.

 

Third through fifth behind Hivner and Allman were Tyler Esh, Dalton Dietrich, and 11th-starting Matt Campbell.

 

Heats for the 34 358 Sprints on hand were won by CJ Tracy, Esh, Chris Arnold, and Adrian Shaffer, with Doug Hammaker winning the consolation.

 

ALL AMERICAN OUTLAWS

Fred Cullum took advantage of an 18th-lap caution to close onto the back bumper of race-long leader Bryan Green and make the race-winning pass on the restart following the event’s only caution flag.

 

Green settled for second, with Justin Cullum, Jim Minter, and Tim Fake completing the top five.

 

Heats for the 13 All American Outlaws were won by Green and Fred Cullum.

HAMMAKER COMES FROM 19TH TO WIN NOUSE SIGNS & GRAPHICS SERIES EVENT AT LINCOLN

HANSON OUTDUELS DICE IN PASS/IMCA SPRINT FEATURE; BOWES BESTS POINTS LEADER INGLIN IN 600 XCEL MODIFIEDS

 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 7/2/2016 –Social media discord and a family feud may have been among the things that inspired Doug Hammaker to score his second Lincoln win of the year in the second leg of the Nouse Signs & Graphics 358 Summer Series event on Saturday night.

 

“I won the Nouse series without a win last year, and I wanted one of those (tiki warrior) trophies,” said Hammaker upon exiting his Heavy Equipment Loaders & Parts #66 in victory lane, “I’ve been getting bashed pretty hard on social media that I can’t pass cars clean. I just came from 19th and I don’t think I hit anybody. Coming back from that far, you have to tip-toe, but I got my mind set.”

 

“We don’t run this car a lot, continued Hammaker, “Last night at Trail-Way we hurt the motor in the red car, so we changed the car around at 1:00 this afternoon. The old man ain’t here, so I kinda set it up myself…so I might have bragging rights this week.

 

“Dad had a family altercation today at the shop, and he decided he wasn’t coming tonight,” said Hammaker when pressed about Dale’s absence, “Hopefully, he got the grumpy pants off and got his happy face on now.”

 

A tenth-lap crash involving the second, third, and fourth-place cars was the only race stoppage in the 25 laps. Jake Eldreth, who was running second made contact with Matt Campbell and flew into the fourth turn catch fence. Collected in the incident was fourth-place Chris Arnold. Eldreth received a check-up from the track EMTs after complaining of head pain.

 

Hammaker was placed fourth for the restart, moved past Kyle Denmyer into third on lap 18, and then drove under both Kevin Nouse and race-long leader Steve Drevicki entering turn three of lap 22.

 

From there, he drove away to his sixth career win and the $1,200 top prize.

 

Second through fifth were Drevicki (in his best ever Lincoln finish), Nouse, Adrian Shaffer, and Denmyer.

 

Heats for the 41 358’s on hand were won by Denmyer, Jordan Givler, Shaffer, and Brent Shearer, with Phil Walter winning the consolation.

 

In another late-race pass for the win, Jaremi Hanson drove under Colby Dice exiting turn two of the next-to-last lap to score his first Lincoln win in the 20-lap PA Sprint Series feature event.

 

Hanson actually started on the pole, but yielded the top spot to fourth-starting Dice at the outset. He chased Dice the entire way before making the race-winning pass. Dice settled for second, with Rick Stief, Dave Brown, Jr., and Drew Ritchey completing the top five.

 

Heats for the 29 PASS/IMCA (305) Sprints on hand were won by Hanson, Zach Burd, and Stephanie Dodson.

 

Aaron Bowes celebrated his 23rd birthday by holding off point series leader Korey Inglin in the 20-lao Xcel Modified feature. Bowes started on the pole and led in the early going before Inglin took the lead. Bowes reclaimed the top spot at mid-race in the caution-marred event. Inglin crossed second, with Nate Brinker coming from the back after an early race spin to finish third. Richie Hitzler and Tyler Bartik rounded out the top five.

 

Heats for the 31 600 Xcel Modifieds on hand were won by Bowes, Brinker, and Inglin, with Bartik winning the consolation.

DEWEASE TAKES ROUND ONE OF 2016 PENNSYLVANIA SPEEDWEEK for 39TH CAREER LINCOLN WIN
(Click on headline link above for full story & results)

Bob Stough holds off Chaney and Montgomery for fifth Lincoln Central PA Legends victory

 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 6/25/2016 – Lance Dewease was never really gone. But his performances in a limited number of appearances has amazed even the most doubting fans in 2016.

 

Dewease started on the pole, followed outside front row starter Lucas Wolfe for the first eight laps, drove by the Zemco #1 in heavy lapped traffic on lap eight to take the lead for good in claiming the $7,000 top prize on what turned out to be opening night of the 26th Annual Pennsylvania Speedweek Saturday night at Lincoln Speedway.

 

“It’s fun to be back,” said Dewease after scoring his 39th career Lincoln win in 17th Annual Kevin Gobrecht Memorial, “It’s been a long time since they’ve been here, and I haven’t raced here any this year.” It was the first Kreitz car win at Lincoln in ten years.

 

Once in the lead, Dewease pulled away from the field to a four-second advantage in heavy lapped traffic when the first caution of the event came out for Cory Haas, who made contact with Doug Esh and came to a stop sideways on the back stretch. Haas changed a flat tire and rejoined the race.

 

Fifth-starting Stevie Smith had worked his way into second for the restart, with Danny Dietrich third after a multi-lap battle with Greg Hodnett.

 

They were still running first through third when the red flag came out for Gerard McIntyre, who rolled onto his side after contact with Esh on turn four on lap 24.

 

“The surface is a little different,” said Dewease of his first Lincoln appearance of the year, “We struggled all night. We were pretty good there once we got going. But after that last caution I was just hanging on. I wasn’t that good, and I didn’t know where to run. I saw Stevie and kinda knew where he was probably going to be. When Danny popped to third…you know, he can run anywhere around this place.”

 

Dietrich found a burst of speed over the final laps to close within two car-lengths of Dewease at the finish, just .284 seconds behind the winner. Smith settled for third, with Hodnett and Wolfe rounding out the top five.

 

“It’s an honor for me to drive this for Donnie and with Davey working on it,” reflected Dewease, “The whole Kreitz family and the whole crew. We’re just here having fun. It is what it is. We may not have had the best race car we had all year, but we took advantage of a good starting spot here tonight.”

 

Dewease’s win in the Kevin Gobrecht Memorial gave him the early points lead in the Speedweek series (166), 15 points ahead of Danny Dietrich (151), followed by Hodnett (148), Stevie Smith (143), and Wolfe (135).

 

Sixth through tenth were 13th-starting Brent Marks, hard charger Aaron Ott (who came from 19th), Brian Montieth, Alan Krimes, and Robbie Kendall.

 

Fast time in time trials over the 40-car was set by Greg Hodnett with a one-lap time of 13.375-seconds (100.935 MPH). Heats for the sprints were won by Stevie Smith, Jim Siegel, Wolfe, and Krimes. Brock Zearfoss won the B-Main.

 

Bob Stough won his heat, drew a #6 pill for the feature inversion, and came from sixth to score his fifth career Lincoln win in the Central PA Legends feature.

 

Stough was the four different leader of the event. Scott Haudeshell led the first two laps from the pole before Lucas Montgomery took the lead on lap three. He led until Mason Chaney wrestled the lead away on lap 16. Stough caught Chaney for the top spot on a lap 19 restart and was scored the leader of the final two laps.

 

Second through fifth were Chaney, Montgomery, Australian invader Hayden Pascoe, and Travis Perry.

 

Heats for the 32 Legends were won by Stough, Perry, and Chaney, with Chris McKinney winning the consolation.

ANOTHER 410 SPRINT CAR THRILLER AT LINCOLN; HOGUE IN VICTORY LANE THIS TIME
(Click on headline link above for full story & results)

Shaffer ninth winner in 10 races in 358 sprint cars; Enders tracks down Criswell for super sportsman win

 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 6/18/2016 – Dover’s Austin Hogue caught race-long leader Tyler Ross as the two leaders were crossing under the white flag to score his first win of the year in the 25-lap 410 sprint car feature at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

 

“I didn’t want to have to work that hard!” said Hogue upon exiting his BAPS Auto Paints and Supply/Livingston Lawn Care/Abe Service Company #52 in victory lane, “Tyler ran me clean and it was an awesome race. You feel bad taking ‘em on the last lap…I don’t know what to say I’m so excited because it’s been one of those years.”

 

“Fast cars, but just not able to get it accomplished here,” added Hogue after scoring his second Lincoln win, “It’s a huge weight off my shoulders. We’ve been on and off. This consistency thing has been a struggle for us, but luckily we got it done here tonight and I can’t thank the guys enough.”

 

Hogue, who started third, passed Gerard McIntyre, Jr. for second on a sixth-lap restart and chased outside front row starter Ross for the next 18 laps. The race-winning move came as the two leaders raced through lapped traffic exiting turn four of lap 24.

 

“I wasn’t catching him on the top and I knew Gerard was down there,” said Hogue, “It was worth the shot and I was hoping the rubber would come in. It did at the very end, and luckily it came in just in time.”

 

A disappointed Ross finished second, with McIntyre, ninth-starting Brian Montieth, and points leader Alan Krimes rounding out the top five. Sixth through tenth were Cory Haas, Jim Siegel, 14th-starting Chad Trout, Mike Bittinger, and Brandon Rahmer.

 

Heats for the 26 410 Sprints were won by Montieth, Freddie Rahmer, and Haas.

 

Adrian Shaffer came from eighth starting spot to score his first Lincoln win of the year in the 20-lap 358 sprint car feature. Shaffer was already in the top five by the end of the first lap and was running third by the end of lap three. He passed Tyler Esh for second on lap 11 and drove around Brie Hershey for the race lead on lap 15.

 

That was the last of four lead changes of the event. Friday night Williams Grove winner Brie Hershey led the first lap from her outside front row starting spot before fourth-starting Esh took over. He they led for the next five laps before Hershey reclaimed the lead on lap eight.

 

Tenth-starting Matt Campbell came on late to pressure Shaffer for the lead in lapped traffic over the final four laps of the non-stop event, timed at 5 minutes, 44.6 seconds. He settled for second, with Hershey, Doug Hammaker, and 12th-starting Jeff Halligan rounding out the top five.

 

Heats for the 28 358 Sprints were won by Dwight Leppo, Jeff Rohrbaugh, and Hammaker, with Chandler Leiby winning the consolation.

 

Mike Enders caught race-long leader Chad Criswell on lap 17 and drove away to his third career Lincoln win in the 25-lap super sportsman feature event. Criswell crossed second .62 seconds behind the winner, with polesitter Scott Dellinger, Paul Miller, and Timmie Barrick completing the top five.

 

Heats for the 18 Super Sportsman were won by Criswell and Doug Dodson, who dropped from the feature field while running third.

HODNETT QUALIFIES FOR SEPTEMBER LINCOLN DIRT CLASSIC WITH SATURDAY SHOWCASE WIN
(Click on headline link above for full story & results)

 Scores $7,000 victory with last turn pass

 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 6/11/2016 – The thrillers just keep coming at Lincoln Speedway.

 

This time it was Central PA point series leader Greg Hodnett who had the fans on their feet, sliding under race-long leader Lucas Wolfe exiting the final turn to claim his third win of the year in Saturday night’s 30-lap Leffler Energy Dirt Classic Showcase.

 

“We never touched,” said Hodnett over the din of boos which were there to meet him in victory lane, “I had to do what I had to do to win. I had a good car. They were out in front, and we chased him down and lucky enough to pass him on the last lap.”

 

The event included a last lap challenge which polesitter and outside front row starter Lucas Wolfe turned down to go for the top prize and an automatic qualifying spot for Lincoln’s September 24th Third Annual Dirt Classic.

 

Ryan Smith, who was slated to start third, accepted the last row challenge, and earned $2,050 by advancing from 24th staring spot to finish 15th.

 

Although he started on the pole, Hodnett lost the drag race to turn one and chased Wolfe the first 29 and three-quarter laps. When the two leaders first hit lapped traffic on lap ten, Wolfe had nearly a two-second lead. He increased the advantage to 2 and-a-half seconds with ten laps to go.

 

But heavy lapped traffic allowed Hodnett to close the gap as the laps wound down. He began peaking under the Zemco #1 in the turns with three laps to go.

 

“Lucas was having trouble getting through one and two. He wanted to be up top, and there were a couple of times he split it and went to the middle. That gave me a lot of momentum,” said Hodnett, “Heading into turn three I thought we were faster and we needed to get off turn four better. When he got caught behind the lapped cars, I made my move. I have watched Brian Montieth and Danny Dietrich and the guys that run good do it every time they come here. I’ve been on the receiving end of that slider, so we just put ourselves in a position to get in front of him and make him back off.”

 

As the two front-runners exited the final turn, Wolfe struck the outside guardrail and wrestled his sprinter home second.

 

Third through fifth were Stevie Smith, Brent Marks (who came from 14th starting spot), and Gerard McIntyre, Jr. Sixth through tenth were Danny Dietrich, Adam Wilt, Chase Dietz, Aaron Ott, and Brian Montieth.

 

Fast time in time trials over the 34-car field was set by Brandon Rahmer with a one-lap time of 13.706-seconds. Heats were won by Montieth, Wolfe, Stevie Smith, and Robbie Kendall, with Brandon Rahmer winning the B-Main. And, of course, Greg Hodnett won the Dash.

CLAUSON WINS 77TH, SIMON FIRST IN USAC WINGLESS SPRINT MAINS AT LINCOLN

Halligan holds off Leiby, Campbell in 358 sprint thriller

 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 6/8/2016 – And the beat goes on for Bryan Clauson after the Noblesville, Indiana driver continued his fairytale season Wednesday night by picking up his fifth USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car feature victory of the season, and 11th overall USAC win, in the 2nd round of the Eastern Storm Tour at Lincoln Speedway.

 

Clauson ran down Chase Stockon for the lead with just six laps remaining in the caution-free affair to claim his 39th career USAC National Sprint Car victory, just one shy of the legendary Gary Bettenhausen for seventh on the all-time list.

 

“Chase was pretty good,” Clauson admitted. “He was moving around and I was moving around and we were just kind of staying even. It seemed like once he got to traffic, something happened and he couldn’t get into the corner quite as hard and we were able to track him down. I just kind of threw a half-hearted slider at him just to break his momentum and I don’t know if it surprised him or what, but I never saw him again after that. These races are tough. The competition is so deep in USAC right now. I just feel lucky to be able to drive a racecar as nice as this.”

 

Clauson lined up third behind front row starters Shane Golobic of California and Joey Biasi of Pennsylvania, but at the start, it was Biasi who took control as the field headed into turns one and two. As the two drag raced down the back straightaway, Golobic was able to mount a charge to grab the lead by a single car length at the line at the completion of lap one.

 

By lap four, third row starter and Fast Qualifier Chase Stockon began to charge to the front, maneuvering around the outside of Biasi for the second spot in turn one.

 

On lap six, Stockon had reeled in leader Golobic. The pair blasted side-by-side out of turn two, down the back straight without sparing an inch. As the two came wheel-to-wheel off of four, Stockon stole the leader’s lane, cutting across the nose of Golobic to assume the lead. One lap later, Clauson worked the middle and high grooves to take second away from Biasi with Stockon now his lone target.

 

Stockon took the high side of the 3/8-mile dirt oval after running low earlier while Clauson continued to search both high and low for the fastest way around. Meanwhile, Chris Windom took third from Golobic on the 12th lap.

 

Despite applying pressure throughout the middle portion of the 30-lapper, Stockon was able to gain a little breathing room as he distanced himself from Clauson a bit with 13 to go.

 

With 10 laps left, leader Stockon began to encounter lapped traffic, holding a roughly five-car-length advantage over Clauson in second.

 

Clauson began to creep ever closer to Stockon, foot-by-foot, inch-by-inch, reeling him in to within an arm’s length distance when Clauson (inside) and Stockon (outside) engaged in a fight that resulted in two near dead-heats at the line on laps 23 and 24, both officially credited to Stockon.

 

On the 25th lap, Clauson dove to the inside at the entrance of the first turn, pitching his machine sideways to slide up in front of Stockon in turn two, forcing him to slow his momentum, which allowed Clauson to pull away to a good-sized advantage down the back straightaway.

 

One lap later, when Stockon was still trying to settle back into a groove, Windom used a big run on Stockon heading into turn one, clearing Stockon for second as the duo exited turn two.

 

In the final laps, Clauson ran away from the pack, taking the victory by a half-straightaway over Windom, Stockon, Thomas Meseraull, Golobic, Ballou, Kevin Thomas, Jr., Biasi, Chad Boespflug and Jerry Coons, Jr.

 

Clauson has now won an astonishing seven of eight non-wing sprint car starts in the last 11 days.

 

Wednesday night’s second USAC feature, a 25-lap make-up feature from 2014, the lineup was determined by who finished on the lead lap during the first feature and then completely inverted. Nineteenth place finisher Carmen Perigo, the last driver on the lead lap in the first feature, would start from the pole alongside Landon Simon while first feature winner Clauson lined up 19th.

 

Perigo led the first two laps from the pole, but Simon would run him down to take the number one spot on lap three.

 

With five laps to go, it became a three-car race between Simon, Brady Bacon and Aaron Farney.

 

Bacon closed on Simon until he was right on Simon’s tail tank as the two headed for turn three. Bacon threw a Hail Mary to the treacherous high side in order to find a single ounce of moisture that would propel him past Simon. But it was not to be as Simon took his first career USAC-sanctioned victory and, in fact, Farney was able to make up the ground to beat Bacon to the checkered flag for the second spot.

 

 

Ephrata’s Jeff Halligan held off Chandler Leiby and Matt Campbell to score his third career Lincoln win in a thriller that saw all three leaders cross under the flagstand less than three carlengths apart.

 

Lady driver Brie Hershey led the first nine laps from the pole and was still leading when the Jeff Boll/Mike Miller #91 car went up in smoke entering turn one of lap ten. Halligan, who started eighth, assumed the lead for the restart and led the rest of the way despite heavy pressure from recent high school graduates Leiby and Campbell.

 

Outside front row starter Jordan Givler crossed fourth, followed by ninth-starting Doug Hammaker. Sixth through tenth were Ashley Cappetta, Brent Shearer, Jeff Rohrbaugh, Todd Rittenhouse, Jr., and Chris Frank.

 

Heats for the 29 358 sprinters were won by Campbell, Hammaker, and Rittenhouse, with Wyatt Hinkle winning the consolation.
