BRIAN MONTIETH BLASTS TO THRILLING SUNDAY NIGHT WIN
(Click on headline link above for full story & results)
Chad Criswell Scores Sportsman Win and Bob Stough Tops Legends 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 3/29/15 - Brian Montieth lived up to his nickname “The Edge” as he blasted around the outside on the high-banks of Lincoln Speedway during the early stages of Sunday’s 25-lap 410 sprint car main and then used a slide job on Greg Hodnett to assume command with 16 laps complete. Montieth then had to fend off challenges from Hodnett following a late race restart before posting his 45th career Lincoln Speedway feature win.

It was the second Sunday program of the season after bad weather on Saturday forced track owners to utilize the Sunday raindate.

Montieth lined up fifth following a first lap lineup rework following a red flag for a multi car pileup in turn two after Robbie Kendall spun and collected Mike Bittinger, Glenndon Forsythe, Tyler Ross and Scott Fisher.

Polesitter Austin Hogue led lap one before third-starting Hodnett powered by off the second turn to take control.

Hodnett, who won the Icebreaker 30 season opener two weeks ago, set a torrid pace on the top side of the speedway as Hogue, Brent Marks and Montieth were locked in a tight battle for the runner-up spot.

Montieth rocketed from fourth spot into second during the 12th lap after driving by Marks in turn two and then blasting around Hogue to take second.

“I just got lucky,” said the Phoenixville driver after earning $3,200 for the Jerry Parrish owned team. “I knew Greg was going to be tough because he wasn’t happy about that restart lineup and neither was I.”

“The inside row isn’t where you wanted to be. I knew I had to do something. For what the weather is, Fred (Putney) did a good job with the race track. Those guys are working against the weather. If you work outside, you know what I’m talking about. They are doing their best and trying to give us something to race on.”

Hodnett was working heavy lapped traffic just past the midway point of the event as Montieth chewed into his lead lap after lap.

Montieth put the race winning move on Hodnett with a slide job in turn four and emerged as the race leader with 16 laps complete.

Disaster nearly struck Montieth after he made contact with Aaron Ott in turn three, resulting in a caution for Ott.

Montieth entered turn one on the restart low as Hodnett pounded the outside looking to regain the lead. Hodnett stayed with the leader and attempted to slide in front of Montieth’s Auto Locater No. 21 in turn two on lap 22 but Montieth had the momentum and drove off the corner ahead of Hodnett and held on for the feature win.

“It (the track) started to go away and I knew the rubber was going to go away so I was going to make Greg try and go around the outside of me, as weird as that sounds,” said Montieth about the late race restart. “We’re going to try to be better this year as far as my head wise and see what we can do with it.”

“I can’t say much more about this team. A couple of weeks ago was the first I’ve sat in this thing since we last raced in October and they’ve done their homework. They make my life fun.”

Following the top two finishers were Gerard McIntyre, Jr., Hogue and Marks with Freddie Rahmer, Jim Siegel, Niki Young, Mark Smith and Cory Haas completing the top 10 finishers.

Heats for the 32 410 Sprints were won by Brent Marks, Cory Haas, Austin Hogue and Robbie Kendall. The consolation was won by Shane Hoff.

Chad Criswell started on the pole of the 25-lap Super Sportsman feature and held off a hard charging Carmen Perigo, Jr. to score his first career Super Sportsman opening day win.

Criswell held the point early over Doug Dodson and Frankie Herr and held the point through several early race yellows.

Following a lap eight restart, Herr got into the back of Dodson, sending Dodson towards the back of the field and eventually to the pits.

Perigo started sixth and moved into the runner-up spot following the mid-way portion of the race but was unable make a pass on the Martinsburg, W.V. driver.

Perigo, Herr, Steve Wilbur and Scott Geesey finished in the top five followed by Kevin Nouse, Mike Enders, Scott Dellinger, Paul Miller and Bobby Hockenberry.

Mike Enders, Carmen Perigo, Jr. and Scott Geesey were heat race winners for the 27 Super Sportsman pitside. The consolation went to Tom Wyckoff.

Bob Stough came out on top of a thrilling 15-lap Central PA Legends feature after exchanging the top spot with Chad Earnst several times over the final five circuits.

Stough took the win over Earnst, 11th starting Lucas Montgomery, Bill Diehl and early race leader Justin Mitchell.

Mason Chaney and Lucas Montgomery were the two heat winners for the 24 Central PA Legends.

GREG HODNETT SCORES LINCOLN SPEEDWAY ICEBREAKER 30 SEASON OPENER

Hodnett Takes Home $4,000 payday in 2015 Season-Opener

 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 3/15/2015 – After being forced to cancel its first three scheduled races of the 2015 racing season due to snow and cold weather, Lincoln Speedway officially kicked off the racing season Sunday afternoon, March 15th, with Greg Hodnett surviving a marathon Icebreaker 30 feature event to add his name to opening day winners at the Pigeon Hills oval.

 

Using the Sunday rain date after a Saturday rainout, a large crowd of fans came out to watch the 410 Sprinters in action as Hodnett missed several early crashes and held on to score the win in the 30 lap feature that took well over an hour to complete.

 

“I was just in survival mode,” stated the Spring Grove driver after earning $4,000 for his 28th career Lincoln Speedway feature win. “The track was very tricky, obviously due to circumstances…but the guys did a great job with the car.”

 

“They freed up it and I knew I was going to be free pretty much the whole race but that was the only way that I figured we could make any headway so it worked out for us.”

 

Hodnett’s win moved him into a tie with Van May for 10th place on Lincoln Speedway’s all-time track win list.

 

The first feature of 2015 took four starts to get an official lap in the books.

 

Niki Young flipped in turn one on the initial green flag. A second red flag came on the ensuing restart when front row starters Freddie Rahmer and Chase Dietz tangled on the frontstrech. Last year’s opening day winner Adam Wilt was also caught up in the crash.

 

Tim Glatfelter brought out the red flag on the third restart, flipping on the front stretch after contact with Chris Knopp and Scott Fisher.

 

Billy Dietrich finally grabbed the top spot when the first lap was scored, but, a yellow for Brian Montieth, who sat sideways off turn two slowed action with three laps complete.

 

Billy Dietrich continued to set the pace over Hodnett, who originally started sixth on the grid when another yellow for Rahmer slowed the pace once again after seven laps were scored.

 

Hodnett shot under Billy Dietrich entering turn one on the restart, emerging as the race leader before Aaron Ott hit the wall in turn two resulting in a fuel stop.

 

Billy Dietrich rolled to a stop on the restart as Hodnett continued to set the pace when another yellow flag appeared with 12 laps down for a stopped Fisher in turn four.

 

Montieth spun on the restart bringing out the final caution of the day.

 

The final 18 laps went non-stop as Hodnett drove the Mike Heffner owned, Lelands.com, Trone Outdoor, Eagle Steel No. 27 sprinter away from the field.

 

Hodnett was slowed up late in the event when he caught the rear of the field but maintained a near straightaway advantage when he crossed under the checkered flag to officially score the first win in Central Pennsylvania this season.

 

“The 51 (Rahmer) and 44 (Dietz) were kind of bouncing around jockeying for position even before we took off so it was inevitable to happen because it’s a pretty narrow race track down here on the front straightaway…unfortunately those guys got tied up in it and it worked out for us and moved us up a row,” said Hodnett. “It wasn’t the raciest I’ve ever been but we just kind of bided our time and made sure we didn’t do anything stupid to take ourselves out of contention.”

 

“Everyone that helps on this car did a nice job and I’m just fortunate to be standing here. Normally here I’m just not that good here. We just lucked out. Hopefully it’s not a bad omen because sometimes when you win early in the year, you get to struggling in the middle and end of the year. Hopefully that doesn’t happen and we can keep this thing going.”

 

Kyle Moody raced home in the runner-up spot ahead of Robbie Kendall, Brent Marks and 20th starting Cory Haas with defending track champion Alan Krimes sixth ahead of Montieth, Gerard McIntyre, Jr., Danny Dietrich and Cole Duncan.

 

Heat races for the 30 410 Sprints pitside were won by Mike Bittinger, Chris Knopp and Bill Dietrich. Last year’s opening day winner Adam Wilt won the consolation.

 

Lincoln Speedway will switch to night racing next Saturday, March 21st, with a 410 Sprint and 358 late model doubleheader. Race time will be 6 PM, with gates opening at 4 PM.
