Abbottstown, PA (August 19, 2023) – Freddie Rahmer added another victory to his stellar season on Saturday night, winning the $6,000 Barry Skelly Memorial from his tenth starting spot. It was Rahmer’s 12th win of the season, his fifth in a row and the 36th win of his career, putting him in sole possession of ninth place on Lincoln’s all-time win list.
Rahmer lined up tenth for the 30-lap feature, “The track was a little tougher to get up through.” Despite the track conditions Freddie still found his way to the front, “I got going pretty good in the middle of the race after having a couple of close calls early.”
JJ Loss and Michael Millard made up the front row for the drop of the green flag with Millard taking the lead coming out of turn 2. Loss stuck around and got by Millard to lead lap 1. Millard tried to battle back to retake the lead but Loss started to pull away.
The red flag came out on lap 3 when Tyler Ross spun out in turn 2 and collected Jordan Givler with both drivers landing on their sides. Loss led Millard, Glenndon Forsythe, Trey Hivner and Chris Arnold on the restart.
Loss got a good restart ahead of the field as Tim Glatfelter got by Arnold for fifth. Forsythe got by Millard for the runner-up spot and Freddie Rahmer made his way into the top five.
A three-car race for third was under way between Hivner Rahmer and Millard with Hivner holding the spot. Dylan Norris had made his way into the top five on lap 8.
Hivner used the high line to pull away from Rahmer. Things took a change though as Rahmer reeled in Hivner using the bottom and made the pass for third on lap 11. Rahmer then made quick work of Forsythe and moved into second on lap 13. Freddie had his sight set on Loss for the lead. Loss had lapped traffic looming in front of him as Rahmer locked in on him. Freddie took the lead at the halfway point just as lapped traffic came into play. As Rahmer worked through lapped traffic contact was made with a lapped car but he was able to save the car from disaster.
Norris was working his way up to the front and took third from Forsythe on lap 19. Dylan reeled in Loss and made the pass for second on lap 24. Rahmer had a seven second advantage over Norris with five laps to go.
Rahmer would get to the checkered flag just shy of seven seconds ahead of Norris. Loss held on to finish third and Cory Haas was fourth. Troy Wagaman crossed the line fifth, earning hard charger honors after driving through the field from his 21st starting spot.
Doug Hammaker Victorious in 358 Sprint Summer Series Event
Pole-sitter Chad Criswell took the lead with Cody Fletcher and Niki Young racing side by side for second. Young got by both Fletcher and Criswell to lead lap 1. Fletcher moved into second before the yellow flag flew on lap 1. Criswell, Kody Hartlaub and Jordan Strickler piled up in turns 3 and 4. Cole Small spun out to avoid the melee.
Young led Fletcher, Scott Fisher, Brett Strickler and Logan Rumsey to the cone for the restart. Young paced the field slowly allowing Fletcher to stay on his bumper to challenge for the lead. Rumsey was working on Strickler for fourth and took the spot. Doug Hammaker had worked his way up from his 10th starting spot to battle Strickler for fifth.
Fletcher was riding the cushion to work on Young for the lead but spun in turns 1 and 2 after contact with Young on lap 4 bringing out the yellow flag.
Fletcher rejoined the field and Young led Fisher, Rumsey Hammaker and Strickler on the restart. Rumsey went to the top and took second from Fisher. Hammaker joined in making it a three-car battle for second. Rumsey held on to the spot by a car length on lap 6 with Hammaker finally taking the position on lap 7.
Ashley Cappetta worked her way into the top five as Young and Hammaker raced side by side for the lead. Hammaker took the top spot on lap 9. Strickler was working on Cappetta to reclaim a spot inside the top five and took it back on lap 10.
Hammaker continued to ride the cushion with Young staying within striking distance as lapped traffic loomed ahead. Hammaker entered lap traffic on lap 14 and then the yellow flag waved again on lap 16 when Cole Small fell off the pace on the front stretch.
The top five for the restart were Hammaker, Young, Rumsey, Fisher and Strickler. Strickler went to the top to challenge Fisher for fourth and Brett took the spot. Fisher had it back on the next lap and the two would swap spots yet again before the red flag came out on lap 24. Wyatt Hinkle flipped in turn 4.
Hammaker, Young, Rumsey, Strickler and Fisher lined up for a green and checkered finish.
Hammaker took the checkered flag 1.071 seconds ahead of Young. Strickler crossed the line third and Rumsey was fourth. Fisher completed the top five.
