Abbottstown, PA (June 10, 2023) – Freddie Rahmer parked the Eichelberger #8 in victory lane at Lincoln Speedway for the third week in a row on Saturday night. It was Rahmer’s six win at the track this year and his eighth win overall, making him the winningest 410 driver in the country, “Really glad to win again. This is a great race for the [Hawkins] family. I appreciate everything they did for it.” Saturday was the second annual Elijah Hawkins Memorial, Freddie won the first iteration of the race last year as well.
Rahmer lined up fourth for the 35-lap feature and took the lead from Troy Wagaman on lap 3. Rahmer had a decent lead when the caution came out on lap 18. The yellow turned to red when fence repairs were needed in turn 2, “We were really good at the beginning and ok after the red.”
As the lap counter ticked down, Wagaman was closing in on Rahmer, “I figured it was coming. The bottom would clean off and get some rubber.” There weren’t enough laps for Wagaman to make a move for the lead and Rahmer took home the $7,000 check.
Chase Dietz and Troy Wagaman started on the front row of the 35-lap, $7,000 to win feature. Dietz had the lead into turn 1 with Wagaman right behind him.
Wagaman stuck his nose under Dietz as they came to the stand on lap 1 but Dietz held the top spot. Freddie Rahmer took second coming out of turn 4 on lap 2 and was up to the lead on lap 3.
With Rahmer at the front of the field Wagaman and Dietz battled for second. Wagaman got by Dietz for second on lap 10. Justin Peck, who returned to the track after a bad wreck that resulted in a concussion last month, was up to fifth. Brandon Rahmer was running fourth and closing in on Dietz.
Dietz, Brandon and Peck battled in close quarters for third in lapped traffic. The yellow came out on lap 18 after Peck made contact with the lapped car of Zane Rudisill. Rudisill sat stopped at the exit of turn 2 and Peck was able to keep going. The yellow turned into an open red as repairs were needed to the fence in turn 2 before racing could resume.
Freddie led Troy, Dietz, Brandon and Peck for the restart. Peck went to the outside of Brandon for fourth and got it at the line using the high line. Brandon threw a slider to reclaim the spot in turns 1 and 2 but Peck kept fourth. Peck then went to work on Dietz for third.
Dietz and Peck were in a fierce battle, swapping the spot back and forth with Peck using the top and Dietz on the bottom. Peck slid in front of Dietz as they raced into turn 1 and took third on lap 27. While Dietz and Peck continued their fierce battle for third, Troy was slowly reeling in Freddie as they once again caught the tail end of the field. Dietz got third back on lap 31.
Freddie was forced high as they worked through lapped traffic, which allowed Wagaman to close in even more. Wagaman went high to try and make a run for the lead, but the top had gone away.
Freddie scored the win with Wagaman crossing the line second in his debut in the Heffner #27. Dietz held off Peck for third, and Peck settled for fourth. Brandon Rahmer finished fifth.
Kyle Spence Adds Name to Lincoln Record Books With First 358 Sprint Car Win
Kyle Keen and Kyle Spence made up the front row of Saturday night’s 358 sprint car feature. Spence took the lead at the flag stand with Keen in second. Tyler Ulrich and Justin Foster both wanted second from Keen.
Cody Fletcher got by Foster for fourth as Ulrich was still searching for a way by Keen to take second. Fletcher entered the battle and took third from Ulrich.
Logan Rumsey got by Foster to get into the top five. Spence had a 3.2 second lead over Keen when he caught the tail end of the field on lap 11. Heavy lapped traffic for Spence allowed Keen to cut down the lead to 2.7 seconds on lap 12. Keen had Spence’s lead down to 1.5 seconds with five laps to go.
Ulrich got back by Fletcher for third late in the race. Spence worked his way through the heavy lapped traffic and was able to put some more distance between Keen
Once Spence got into lapped traffic he started to pull away from Keen again and had the lead back over 2 seconds with one lap to go.
Spence won the non-stop feature, his first in the division, and took home $1,500. Keen finished second and Ulrich crossed the line third. Rumsey was fourth and Fletcher completed the top five.
Steve Owings Wins June 3 Make-up Feature
Scott Fisher and Justin Foster were at the front of the field for the June 3 make-up feature to kick things off on Saturday night. Fisher led but there was a caution on the start when Wyatt Hinkle ended up sitting sideways on the front stretch.
The field lined up for a complete restart. Fisher shot out to the lead again with Foster to his outside. Foster’s trip to the top of the track allowed Jayden Wolf to get under him and move into second. Rumsey got by Foster for third on the next lap.
Steve Owings was working on Foster for fourth and took it. Kody Hartlaub followed, sending Foster back to sixth.
Fisher, Wolf and Rumsey were evenly spaced at the front of the field as they chased down lapped traffic. Owings caught Rumsey to challenge for third. The front of the field entered lapped traffic on lap 7 and it didn’t take long for Owings to get by Rumsey for third.
Fisher had trouble getting around a lapped car which allowed Wolf to close in. A three-car race for the lead between Fisher, Wolf and Owings was underway. Fisher had the lead when the yellow came out on lap 15 for David Holbrook. Holbrook fell off the pace and came to a stop on the front stretch. Owings had made the pass for second but the yellow came out before the pass was official.
Fisher led Wolf, Owings, Rumsey and Niki Young to the cone for a single-file restart. Wolf was all over Fisher but did not make the pass. Owings went to the top in turn 2 and took second from Wolf. Owings went to the top again to battle Fisher for the lead. Fisher and Owings raced wheel to wheel down the back stretch with Owings taking the lead with three laps to go, right before the caution came out for Cole Knopp who spun in turns 1 and 2.
Owings had a good restart and pulled away. Rumsey was up next to Wolf to challenge for third but Wolf kept the spot.
Owings took the checkered flag for his first win of the season. Fisher crossed the line second and Wolf was third. Rumsey finished fourth and Young was fifth.
