Abbottstown, PA (June 29, 2023) – Going into Thursday night, Freddie Rahmer was still missing a Lincoln Speedway Speedweek win on his resume. Rahmer had scored Speedweek wins at Hagerstown and Williams Grove in 2019 and 2017 respectively. Rahmer wired the field for 30 laps and can now add Lincoln as his third career Speedweek win. The win was his seventh of the season at the 3/8-mile oval and his ninth overall, allowing him to reclaim the sole title of winningest 410 driver in the country.
Rahmer started the night setting quick time over the 34-car field and made the redraw with a third place finish in his heat. Rahmer drew the pole for the feature, “I really didn’t want to start on the pole,” Freddie shared in victory lane. Rahmer had worked through lapped traffic and had a decent lead over the rest of the field, “We were getting through lapped traffic on and off ok and then I got held up a little bit.” The first caution of the race came with three laps to go, forcing Rahmer to forfeit his 3 second lead. Freddie had Brent Marks and Anthony Macri lined up behind him for the restart. Another restart with two laps to go had Rahmer holding off Marks and Macri yet again for a green, white, checkered finish. Rahmer held off both Marks and Macri as they battled for second, “We’ve been fast all year. Really proud to win this one.”
Pole-sitter Freddie Rahmer took the lead when the green flag dropped with Tanner Thorson right there to challenge for the top spot. Rahmer had a solid lead over Thorson coming out of turn 2 as Thorson was holding off TJ Stutts down the back stretch.
Chad Trout, Brent Marks and Anthony Macri raced three-wide out of turn 4 for fourth with Marks taking the spot and Macri moving into fifth. Trout would pull off with engine trouble, ending his run. Marks and Macri continued to battle for fourth with Macri taking the spot on lap 10. Rahmer entered lapped traffic on lap 10 and Thorson started closing in on the leader as they worked around lapped cars.
Macri got by Stutts for third on lap 13. Justin Peck got under Marks for fifth but Marks took it back after the two bumped wheels. Peck was not going away. Chase Dietz was in seventh watching the battle between Peck and Marks unfold in front of him. Dietz made a move and got under Peck down the back stretch for sixth but Peck battled back to keep the spot at the line on lap 17.
Macri was closing in on Thorson for second and got a good run into turn 3. Thorson held the spot but Marks entered the picture and took third from Macri on lap 24. Marks got under Thorson for second down the back stretch on lap 27 before the caution came out. Thorson sat in turn 4 with a flat tire.
Rahmer led Marks, Macri, Peck and Dietz for the restart. Rahmer and Marks went low into turn 1 with Macri opting for the top. Macri was on Marks’ bumper for second at the line when the yellow flag came out again on lap 28. Danny Dietrich, who had been running seventh, was sitting backwards in turn 2.
The top five for the green, white, checkered finish were Rahmer, Marks, Macri, Peck and Dietz. Rahmer went low again with Marks choosing the high line through turns 1 and 2. Macri was all over Marks for second again and took the spot at the finish line by a nose.
Rahmer took the checkered flag 1.141 seconds ahead of Marci. Macri took second from Marks at the line by .053 seconds. Peck held on to fourth and Stutts took fifth.
