FRANKIE HERR SCORES FIRST SUSQUEHANNA WIN OF THE SEASON Johnny Palm, Travis Brown and Ryan Greth also Visit Victory Lane

Winning Super Sportsman features was a common occurrence for Frankie Herr for many years.

However, when Herr sold his operation several seasons ago and went part-time in the division with car owner Bill Devine, the starts and wins were few and far between.

The Carlisle, PA driver returned to victory lane in Saturday night’s 25-lap Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman feature at Susquehanna Speedway. The win was the first of the season for Herr as he became the ninth different winner in Super Sportsman competition this season. It was his fifth start of the 2016 season.

Aboard the Dirty Deeds Repair and Fabrication, Victory Lane Construction & Home Improvement, Fastener Specialties No. 70D2, Herr led flag to flag and withstood a caution-laded feature event to capture his 10th career Susquehanna Super Sportsman feature win.

Herr lined up third and immediately drove into the top spot and would never look back despite the seven cautions (including one on the final lap) and a fuel stop.

Russ Mitten started 13th to raced his way into the runner-up spot at the checkered flag, after moving past Scott Geesey following the lap 24 restart with Geesey, who started 12th settling for the third spot.

Completing the top five were Chad Smith and ninth starting Kenny Edkin as 15th starter Gregg Foster crossed in sixth over Scott Dellinger, 20th starting Doug Dodson, Rich Eichelberger and Tony Jackson, who earned the Hard Charger after starting 24th.

Heats for the 31 Super Sportsman were won by Jake Miller, Herr and Edkin with Chad Criswell winning the consolation.

Kirby Sites led the first 18 laps of the 20-lap Extreme Stock feature before Johnny Palm took the lead and held on to capture his first win of the season.

Palm became the fifth different Xtreme Stock winner as Sites, Alex Updegraff, John Frye and 13th starting Ronnie Buck rounded out the top five finishers.

Mallory Duvall won the lone heat for the 14 Xtreme Stocks.

Travis Brown became the first repeat winner in Road Warrior action as he scored the 15-lap feature win and added to his track point lead.

Brown took the lead on lap five and drove off to score the win over Daryl Sipe, Thomas Thompson, Brandon Hedstrom and Robbie Carroll.

Lee Redman actually crossed second but was disqualified after failing post race tech.

Justin Cardasso was the heat winner for the 13 Road Warriors.

Ryan Greth led all 20 laps to win the ARDC Midget feature over Alex Bright, Trevor Kobylarz, Brett Arndt and Tommy Kunsman,.

Brendon Bright was the ARDC heat winner with 10 cars pitside.

The month of September will kick off with a Saturday night, September 3 racing program featuring the PASS/IMCA 305 sprints with the 358 Late Models returning to the track after a few week absense. The Street Stocks and PENMAR Cars will round out the racing card Saturday night.  Pits open at 4PM, Grandstands at 5PM and Racing at 7PM.

SIEGEL 15TH DIFFERENT WINNER OF THE SEASON IN LINCOLN 410 SPRINT CAR FEATURE


BRIE HERSHEY SCORES SECOND CAREER WIN IN 358” SPRINTS; JOSH BLOOM WINS FIRST EVER IN STREET STOCKS

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 8/27/2016 – Jim Siegel picked up his first win of the year and became the 15th different winner in 20 races in the 25-lap feature at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

Handicapping placed Siegel fourth for the start and he drove into the runner-up spot by the end of the first lap.
From there, he chased down outside front row starter and race-long leader Tim Wagaman to make the race-winning pass on lap nine, one lap after the event’s only caution came out for Adam Wilt, who oiled the front stretch after getting a hole in the oil pan.

“Timmy was rolling in the beginning and I didn’t know if I was going to be able get him,” said Siegel in victory lane, “That caution was a welcome sight. My intent was to do it in one and two, but he got a better restart than me and caught me sleeping. I knew there was a big strip of moisture off of two, and I got a good run and almost got to him. I knew he was going to get it back. I didn’t get a real good drive off four, so I just sped up to hit that moisture strip again and once we got out front, lapped cars did a good job of using their heads, and we just got to picking them off one at a time.”

Siegel drove away from the field for his 13th career win in the Pigeon Hills, moving him alongside Neil Haight and Steve Stambaugh for 24th on the all-time Lincoln win list.

Wagaman settled for second, crossing 4.16 seconds behind the winner, with defending track champ and hard charger Brian Montieth advancing from tenth to finish third. Keeping pace and holding on the Lincoln points lead with one point race remaining was Alan Krimes, who came from 11th starting spot. Rounding out the top five was Gerard McIntyre, Jr.

Completing the top ten were Danny Dietrich, Cory Haas, Robbie Kendall, Austin Hogue, and 16th-starting Chase Dietz.

“We’ve been getting better. We had a decent start to the beginning of the year and then we just started struggling,” said Siegel, “We made gains and then struggle and make gains and struggle. About the last month here, we put a Maxim together and we’re back on Pro Shocks and started from scratch. We’ve been getting better every week. Starting spot helped”.

Heats for the 28 410 Sprints were won by Krimes, Montieth, and Danny Dietrich, with Kevin Nagy winning the consolation.

Lady driver Brie Hershey of Dillsburg led every lap in claiming her second career Lincoln win in the 25-lap “358” sprint car feature. Hersey dominated the entire way in the finale of the Nouse Signs and Graphics “358” Sprint Car Summer Series, crossing 1.19 seconds in front under the checkered.

Doug Hammaker finished fourth and took home the $1,000 top prize in the Summer Series after coming into the final race with a slim one-point lead over Kevin Nouse.

Starting on the outside of the front row and crossing second was Phil Walter, who raced with Matt Campbell for the runner-up spot over the final laps, with Campbell picking up the hard charger award for coming 16th starting spot to finish third. Behind Hammaker in fifth was Kyle Denmyer, who finish third behind Nouse overall summer series points.

Sixth through tenth were Adrian Shaffer, Nouse, Tyler Esh, Jeff Halligan (who came from the back after a multi-car incident on lap four), and Matt Findley, who came from 21st starting spot.

Points leader Chandler Leiby was involved in a turn two crash on lap four, ending his night. His 22nd-place finish, combined with Campbell’s third-place finish closed Campbell to within 15 points unofficially with two point races remaining.

Heats for the 38 358 Sprints were won by Hershey, Walter, Dwight Leppo, and Jeff Rohrbaugh, with Findley winning the consolation.

East Earl’s Josh Bloom started on the pole, led every lap, and claimed his first career win in the 20-lap street stock feature.

The win came by 1.16 seconds over third-starting Randy Zechman, with Greg Diehl, Jamie Zentmyer, and hard charger Jimmy Combs, who came from 15th starting spot.

Heats for the 28 Street Stocks were won by Zentmyer, Mike Potts, and Kyle Martin, with with Josh’s dad Ryan Bloom winning the consolation.

Next Saturday night, September 3rd, Lincoln Speedway celebrates the Labor Day holiday weekend with a three division show featuring the Lawrence Chevrolet 410 Sprints’ final point race of the 2016 season. Will Alan Krimes hang on to claim his 2nd track title in three years, or can four-time defending track champion Brian Montieth overcome Krimes’ sizeable point lead to record yet another track title? The 358 Sprints will also be competing in their next-to-last Keizer Aluminum Wheels point race, along with the Super Sportsman who will be competing in their final tune-up before their big Keystone 50 race on September 17th. Rounding out the evening will be a spectacular FIREWORKS display. As usual, general admission gates will open at 5:30 PM with qualifying heats getting underway at 7:30 PM.

Brent Marks Wipes Up Port Royal Sprint Field, Calls Track “Premier Facility In Pennsylvania.”

PORT ROYAL, Pa. ? One week after the Jonestown Jet Brock Zearfoss won the sprint car main at Port Royal Speedway, the Myerstown Missile Brent Marks came in for a landing in victory lane, scoring his second oval checkers of the year, worth $3,200 in a flag to flag performance.

Elsewhere, Dover?s Coleby Frye made it back-to-back wins in the super late model division, holding off Mike Lupfer for the hard-fought victory amid a stellar field.

In the 305 sprint main, Tyler Reeser won his second of the season at the track as did Mike Goodwin in the xtreme stock divisions.

A total of 102 race cars jammed the Port Royal pit area for the night of action.

Ryan Taylor and Marks shared the front row for the 25-lap 410 sprint car feature and Marks took command at the drop of the green.

Taylor trailed Marks for just the first lap before point leader Doug Esh motored into second spot.

A caution flag on the fourth circuit wiped out a two second lead built up by Marks but Esh could not contend on the restart.

Marks entered the rear of the field with 10 laps away chased by Esh and although the rest of the event was fought through traffic, Esh was never really able to get close enough to attempt any sort of challenge.

But even with firm command, Marks weaved through traffic during the final five laps, making some daring and breathtaking moves that could have saved his win or ended his run, depending on pure fate.

Marks took the victory, the seventh of his overall career at Port Royal Speedway by 1.714 seconds.

In victory lane Marks praised speedway track crews for the surface that has produced excellent racing all season long and went on to proclaim the oval, ?The premier track in Pennsylvania.?

Ryan Taylor finished third, nearly seven seconds back of the winner followed by Brock Zearfoss and Dylan Cisney.

Both Zearfoss and Cisney drove by Greg Hodnett to secure their spots.

Hodnett rode home sixth followed by Logan Wagner, Lucas Wolfe, Mike Wagner and Joey Hershey.

Heats went to Taylor, Marks and Esh. Kody Lehman won the consolation race.  Hodnett set fast time in group time trials.

Gene Knaub took control of the 22-lap super late model main when action began, trailed by defending track champion Mike Lupfer.

Lupfer pounded his patented low groove the entire distance of the event and wrestled the lead away from Knaub on the sixth tour.

But third starter Frye was running as high around the track as Lupfer was low and he used the groove to get by Knaub for second with eight laps in the book.

Once he got cooking around the top side, Frye was able to vault around Lupfer for the lead on the ninth lap however Lupfer kept Frye in his sights for the rest of the race.

One miscue by Frye would have netted Lupfer the lead again and at times Lupfer was able to get inside Frye but his bottom lane just never quite came in good enough to put him back out in front.

Frye was victorious by 1.363 seconds over Lupfer, Dan Stone, Knaub and Chad Hollenbeck.

Sixth through 10th went to Tim Smith Jr., Tim Wilson, Andy Haus, Waylon Wagner and Gary Stuhler.

Heats went to Jeremy Miller, Stone and Waylon Wagner with Tim Wilson scoring the consolation.  Frye set fast time in qualifications.

Drew Ritchey drove from his fourth starting spot into the lead on the fourth lap of the 18 lap 305 sprint main, overtaking Scott Ellerman for control.

The first 11 laps of the feature threatened to allow Ritchey to get away for his first ever oval victory but a caution flag bunched the field and placed Jeff Miller and Tyler Reeser on his tail for the restart.

Reeser pounced on Miller for second at the new green and then blasted past Ritchey for control a lap later.

Once in front Reeser pulled away to his second win of the year at the track.

Miller then also got around Ritchey for second, where he would finish.

Ritchey rode home third followed by Scott Ellerman and Cale Reigel.

Heats went to Ellerman, Derrick Bowersox, Miller and Ritchey with Danny Stratton scoring the consolation race.

After a first lap red flag in the xtreme stock feature for some hard backstretch contact, Mike Goodwin led all 15 laps of the feature to win over Pete Leister.

Leister started 12th in the field and raced his way to the front while Bill Powell ended the race in third followed by Kevin Imes and Jason Zook.

OWINGS CLAIMS THIRD WIN OF THE YEAR IN TRAIL-WAY 358 SPRINTS; YOUNG WINS FEATURE, SECOND TITLE IN 600CC MICROS; JUSTIN LEH DECLARED WINNER OF STREET STOCK CHAMPIONSHIP AFTER DQ OF BRIAN WALLS; ROST WINS LYLE ADCOCK MEMORIAL FOR CLASSIC CARS


HANOVER, PA (8/26/2016) – Steve Owings made a late-race pass under Seth Kearchner to score his third win of the year in Friday night’s 25-lap “358” sprint car feature at Trail-Way Speedway.

“They made me work for this one,” said Owings upon exiting the Valentine Motorsports/Westminster Transmission/B&D Truck Hoist #35 in victory lane, “They were running fast up front.  Lapped cars and driver experience made the difference tonight.”

An inversion draw of four put Owings on the inside of row two for the start.

Seth Kearchner started second and led the first 23 laps before Owings slid under Kearchner as the two leaders passed under the white flag.  Two turns later, disaster struck for Kearchner, who hit the lapped car of Steve Kisamore, bringing out the caution and ending the night for both drivers.

Owings led the final lap to claim his tenth career Trail-Way win, with Jeff Halligan, polesitter Kody Hartlaub, Tyler Walton, and Isaac Sneeringer completing the top five.

“If it weren’t for Steve Rucker, we would be here,” said Owings, “We’ve been running here since motorcycles in 80’s.  It’s just a lot of fun here.”

Sixth through tenth were Cody Fletcher, points leader David Holbrook, Dwight Leppo, Mike Bittinger, and J.B. Cunningham.

Qualifiers for the 16 “358” sprints were won by Walton and Owings.

Johnstown’s Jim Young added an exclamation point to his second Trail-Way track title by winning the 20-lap 600cc micro-sprint feature.  It was Young’s third TW win of the year and 10th of his Trail-Way career.  Second through fifth were Brad Weber, Mike Rynard, Zane Rudisill, and Hannah Riser.

Heats for the 18 micros were won by Darren Kauffman and Young.

Travis Leh was declared the winner of the 25-lap street stock championship when apparent winner Brian Walls was disqualified following a refusal by his car owner to a requested post-race inspection.  It was Leh’s first career street stock win.

Michael Goodwin, Jeremy Stremmel, Dalton Myers and Pat Meadowcroft were credited with second through fifth.

\Heats for the street stocks were won by Zach Myers and Leh.

Jim Rost won the 20-lap Lyle Adcock Memorial for Classic Cars.

His margin of victory was a half-lap after Joe Brown and Ron Grove got together while racing for second with two laps to go.  Both drivers recovered, and Brown crossed second followed by Grove.  Tim Fake and Neal Reamer completed the top five.

Heats for the nine Classic Cars were won by Reamer and Rost.

Tomorrow, Saturday, August 27th, Trail-Wasy hosts the “Kings of Crash” Junk Car Demolition. Also in action will be the Figure 8, Powder Puff and the Limited Stocks in a Championship race. Gates open at 4:00 p.m., with the “Best Appearing Junk Car Contest” beginning at 6:00 p.m.

Aaron Ott Wires For Williams Grove Sprints Win, Campbell claims 358s


Mechanicsburg – Aaron Ott wired the field from the pole for the 410 sprint car feature win at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, holding off Danny Dietrich for the victory in a fast paced 25-lap main event.

In the 358 sprint main it was Matt Campbell claiming his first feature win of the season and third overall of his career at the oval.

The 410 sprint main took four tries at a start before the first lap could be recorded but once it was the following 24 clicked off non-stop.

One of the initial start stoppages was for a turn over by Doug Esh who had connected with Lucas Wolfe.

Brent Marks started second in the race but got passed by Cory Haas when the first lap was completed while Marks maintained the third spot.

Leader Ott hit lapped traffic on the 12th tour with Brock Zearfoss and Danny Dietrich in the top five.

A hectic pace on a quickening cushion really shook up the front runners during the final 10 laps as the race waged through heavy traffic.

Eleventh starter Brian Montieth had worked his way up to sixth with 10 laps to go and went for a big slide job on Danny Dietrich and Brock Zearfoss that backfired with him loosing spots instead while Dietrich capitalized on the skirmish to bolt into third from fifth.

With Montieth left to regroup, Dietrich set his sights on the rest of the front runners and overtook Haas for second with six laps to go.

With four to go Dietrich was clearly poised to take a stab at the win and the pair crossed the stripe on lap 22 nose to tail.

At first upon entering the first corner, Dietrich faked to the outside then quickly swerved left and under Aott for the lead, which he grabbed momentarily until his car caught the cushion and bicycled, allowing Ott to zoom back by just underneath.

The bicycle by Dietrich gave Ott enough breathing room afterward to run to the win, although only taking the checkers by .554 seconds.

Marks was third with a recovering Montieth fourth and Haas in fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Greg Hodnett, Zearfoss, Freddie Rahmer, Alan Krimes and Steve Buckwalter.

Heats went to Lucas Wolfe, Hodnett and Marks.

Cody Keller led from the start of the 20-lap 358 sprint main with Brent Shearer in tow and saw the pace slowed for the first time with 12 laps to go.

The caution flag erased a nice advantage built by Keller over the field and placed Matt Campbell, who had just taken second on the eighth tour, in a challenging position for the resart.

Keller held Campbell off for two more laps before another yellow flag bunched the field and Keller again held sway for four more laps before succumbing from pressure from Cambpell.

And once Campbell was able to slip by Keller for the lead, he drove away for the checkered flag.

Kevin Nouse got around Keller for second in the final turns with Keller holding on for third followed by Doug Hammaker and Adrian Shaffer.

Shaffer was the Wee Bee Audio And Video Hard Charger, driving from 18th to fifth at the finish.

Heats went to Brie Hershey, Nouse and Kyle Denmyer with Tyler Esh taking the consolation race.

Weller Parks It Again in Victory Lane

Weller Parks It Again in Victory Lane

Josh Weller is as hot at the August heat right now with the United Racing Club. Fresh off of an 18 to 5 place and hard charger at Williams Grove to winning at Susquehanna Speedway from the 4th position on Saturday night, Weller rolled into Bridgeport Speedway for a Tuesday night special paying $2,000 to win thanks to Valley Forge Inc and GEI Enterprises kicking in an extra $500 for the win.

With a field of 17 cars in the pits for the Tuesday night show, 2 heat races were needed to complete the line up for the 25 lap A-Main. Heat race #1 was won by the Quality Auto Body #89 of Robbie Stillwaggon who was still suffering some physical effects from his crash on Friday night at the Williams Grove Speedway and heat race #2 was won by the 2014 URC Champion and current points leader the Franek Auto Sales #28f of Davie "No Panic" Franek.

After Heat race #1 winner Robbie Stillwaggon drew the "6" invert pill, the front row was set with Weller and the Fall Proof Fall Protection, Bitner Automotive, K&N Filters #15 of Mr. Twister Mark Bitner.

Right from the drop of the green, Bitner out drug Weller going into turn won and was shown the leader of lap #1. Bitner carried the lead until lap 4 saw the first and only caution of the race, unfortunately it was the leader Mark Bitner who rolled to a stop in turns 1 and 2. Bitner later reported motor problems put an early end to his great run. With Weller now in command, the driver of the Victory Auto Glass #63 picked the outside of row 1 heading to the restart. Weller quickly took command of the lead and went and hid for the remaining laps.

Weller parked the #63 in victory lane and completed his traditional wing dance. Following Weller to the line was current points leader Davie Franek, the GEI Enterprises, Valley Forge Inc #5g Curt Michael, the R&S Concrete Paving and Site Contractors #47 of Adam Carberry. Carberry who expired a motor on Saturday night at Susquehanna quickly contacted former 360 driver Eddie Wagner for the purchase of his SEC Racing Engines motor. Carberry had just enough time to pull the old mount from his #47 and place the new motor in before heading to the track on Tuesday afternoon. Rounding out the top 5 was the B&G Auto Glass #22 of Troy Betts.

The Untied Racing Club will now complete a 4 races in 8 days swing when they head north to Middletown NY and the Famed Orange County Fair Speedway on Saturday night. Franek continues to lead the 2016 United Racing Club Points followed by Stillwaggon and 9 Time URC Champion Curt Michael.

Results: 1) #63 Josh Weller 2) #28F Davie Franek 3) #5G Curt Michael 4) #47 Adam Carberry 5) #22 Troy Betts 6) #67w Justin Whittall 7) #39 Nate Snyder 8) #89 Robbie Stillwaggon 9) #56 Chris Coyle 10) #73b Brett Michalski 11) #18 Tim Tanner 12) #5 Stef Palmai 13) #77w Will Eggimann 14) #67 Jason Cherry 15) #15 Mark Bitner 16) #17j Jonathan Swanson

Schatz wins at Junction Motor Speedway

by Tony Veneziano

MCCOOL JUNCTION, Neb. — August 16, 2016 — Entering the World of Outlaws Craftsman® Sprint Car Series event at Junction Motor Speedway on Tuesday night, Donny Schatz had never finished off the podium in five career starts at the 3/8-mile. The seven-time and defending series champion extended that streak, while adding to his win total at the track, as he dominated the 30-lap main event.

Schatz started second and took the lead on the top side of the track from pole sitter Joey Saldana. Schatz would go on to lead all 30 laps aboard the Bad Boy Off-Road J&J for Tony Stewart Racing.

“You definitely had to be up front tonight, because the track was so fast,” said Schatz. “When it started moving it went right to the top. When we got to lapped traffic we had trouble getting by guys, but they were fast cars we were trying to get by. The start is always important and you never really try to push the issue.”

The race was slowed by a pair of cautions, both on the second lap. On the first restart, which was a double file restart, Schatz chose the high side of the track and shot out to a lead. Following the second caution, officials elected to go with single file restarts the remainder of the night. On that restart, Schatz again used a strong run to quickly open a gap on David Gravel, who had moved into second, after Joey Saldana suffered a broken rear end while running second.

Late in the race, Schatz caught lapped traffic, and with how fast the track was it took several laps to get around a couple of cars. That allowed Gravel to close as the leader was not able to get around those machines. With six laps remaining, Schatz was able to get around the two cars he had been trying to lap and pulled away.

“My crew did a great job,” he said. “Tony Stewart Racing has such a good group of guys and they keep doing such a great job with the race car. When the race car is like that, they are fun to drive. It helps when you get yourself in a good position on the front row.”

For Schatz, the win was his 17th of the season and his third triumph at Junction Motor Speedway. He is the only driver that has won more than once at Junction Motor Speedway. The win also helped him extend his lead in the championship standings as he chases his eighth title.

“There is a lot expected out of us, and I expect a lot out of myself as well as my race team at any race track we go to,” noted Schatz. “After 20 years, you’d think you’d be able to figure some stuff out. I think it’s more of that than anything. It’s not a confidence thing. These guys know what they are doing. Some days I may look like I know what I am doing, and some days I actually know what I’m doing. Today we seemed to get everything lined up just right.”

Gravel was able to get side-by-side with Schatz coming off turn-four on lap-23, but was not able to make a pass. Late in the race, Gravel had to fend off several charges by Brad Sweet as the pair battled for the second spot. The runner-up finish for Gravel was his 34th top-five finish of the season.

“I had a shot for one lap and then Donny (Schatz) got by Paul (McMahan) and set sail,” said Gravel. “I think we got a little free at the end and I got the wing back probably too far to roll that fast of a race track. We’re happy with second. We started second in the dash and gained a row there and gained another row in the feature, so I can’t complain with that. I would have liked to have won, but it just wasn’t in the cards tonight, so we’ll move on to Sunday.”

Sweet started third and fell back to fifth early, before making a late-race charge. While the lead duo was negotiating the couple of lapped cars during the last 10 laps, Sweet was able to close in on Gravel, but couldn’t quite get enough of a run to make a pass.

“It was awfully hard to get by the traffic, because there was so much grip there, three-quarters of the way up the track with that cushion,” explained Sweet. “The lapped cars were just fast enough that you couldn’t clear them. I would get a run on David (Gravel), but he covered it up pretty good and he was getting good enough runs off the exit that we weren’t able to get the right run to make the pass.”

The third-place finish for Sweet was his 33rd top-five of the season as he kept pace with Gravel in the point standings. The pair is separated by just three markers.

“You’ll have nights like these and you have to be happy with a podium finish,” Sweet said. “The Ollie’s Bargain Outlet car has been fast and we didn’t get the right draw, but Donny (Schatz) did a great job in traffic clearing those couple guys. It got close for a second. That’s what he does really well and we have to do a little better. We’ll keep working on it and hopefully we can get some wins.”

Daryn Pittman finished fourth, after a side-by-side battle with Shane Stewart, who crossed the line fifth. Logan Schuchart finished sixth, with Jason Sides seventh and Jason Johnson eighth. Ian Madsen, who opened the night by setting a new track record in time trials finished ninth. Paul McMahan rounded out the top-10.

The World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series returns to action on Sunday, August 21 at Angell Park Speedway in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, along with Bumper to Bumper IRA Sprints.

JOSH WELLER CAPTURES URC/358 SPRINT CHALLENGE WIN First Time Wins for Dan Zechman in Late Models and Robbie Carroll in Roadwarriors



Josh Weller out-dueled point leader Davie Franek during Saturday night’s 25-lap URC/358 Sprint Challenge at Susquehanna Speedway and went onto score his second URC win of the season.

Franek, the winner in URC action Friday night, started on the pole and led lap one before Mark Smith went out front and led the next two circuits.

Franek regained the lead from Smith on the fourth tour and was leading Smith on the ninth lap when Smith slowed on the speedway to bring out a caution.

Following a caution on an attempted double file restart, a single file restart saw Weller, of Mertztown, PA jump to the outside of Franek and won the race off the second corner to take the lead  with 11 laps down and he would never look back in scoring the win aboard his No. 63 Sprint.

Franek rode home in the runner-up spot ahead of Robbie Stillwaggon with Doug Hammaker coming from his 13th starting spot to finish fourth, the highest finishing 358 sprint car in the field. Derek Locke finished fifth as Eric Tomecek, Curt Michael, Justin Whittall, Steven Drevicki and Dave Betts completing the top ten finishers.

J.J. GRASSO EDGES 12TH-STARTING MONTIETH IN FALLEN FIREFIGHTERS NIGHT AT LINCOLN SPEEDWAY Troy Wagaman, Jr. scores first career win in “358” sprints; Fred Cullum makes late-race pass to win All-American Outlaws




ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 8/13/2016 –J.J. Grasso started on the front row and held off 12th-starting Brian Montieth at the end to score his third career Lincoln win in Saturday night’s 33-lap National Fallen Firefighters feature event in memory of Brandon Little.

Grasso dominated most of the race from the pole, leading by as much as a straightaway with five laps to go. But Montieth fought his way through lapped traffic to close onto Grasso’s bumper on the final lap, crossing just 11-hundreths of a second behind the Middletown, DE winner. The two cars nearly touched at the finish line as they crossed with a lapped car.

“I thought Brian was going to get me sooner,” said Grasso after claiming the $5,000 top prize in his family-owned BK Trucking/Betts Garage #37, “I was running as hard as I could and was trying not to get over a lapped car or do anything stupid. That rain delay helped. I had a little problem and was able to fix the front end during that delay. I’m just glad Brian Montieth didn’t get by.”

The event actually began with a first-lap flip by Cory Haas just before the rains came, resulting in an hour and-a-half delay. Haas was able to make repairs during the delay and restart at the rear, coming back through to finish 13th.

“I’m having a little trouble catching my breath and I’m a little emotional,” said Grasso, “This one is for Bryan Clauson and Kramer Williamson. Those guys taught everyone so much, and they were such good racers. It feels so good to be here. I guess I’m a little out of shape after going 33 laps non-stop.”

Montieth made Grasso work hard over the final five laps as he closed the gap dramatically, setting up the final front stretch thriller to the checkered.

Third through fifth were points leader Alan Krimes, Tyler Ross, and Kyle Moody. Rounding out the top ten were Billy Dietrich, Jim Siegel, Austin Hogue, Adam Wilt, and Robbie Kendall.
Heats for the 24 410 Sprints were won by Tim Glatfelter, Dietrich, and Montieth.

Hanover’s Troy Wagaman, Jr. took the lead at the outset and led them all in the 20-lap “358” sprint car feature. But the last seven laps were tough, as tenth-starting Jeff Halligan moved into the runner-up spot, closed on Wagaman, and took the lead from Wagaman with a slider in turn two late in the race, only to have Wagaman race back by Halligan down the backstretch.

Halligan settled for second, with 12th-starting Matt Campbell, point leader Chandler Leiby, and Jeff Rohrbaugh completing the top five.

Heats for the 28 358 sprints were won by Nick Palmerino, Adrian Shaffer, and Tyler Walton.

Fred Cullum took the lead from polesitter and race-long leader Randy Doty with two laps to go and scored the win in the 20-lap All-American Outlaw feature.

Doty, Bryan Green, Fred’s son Justin Cullum, and Gary Moreland, Sr. crossed second through fifth.

Heats for the 11 All American Outlaws were won by Fred Cullum and Green.

Lincoln Speedway swings back into action this Wednesday night, August 17th, with a special mid-week show featuring the USAC DIRT MIDGET SERIES (co-sanctioned by ARDC) plus an EMMR Exhibition. Gates will open at 5:30 PM, and time trials getting underway at 7:30 PM.

Jason Johnson Brings Knoxville to Its Feet with Nationals Win!

Jason Johnson Brings Knoxville to Its Feet with Nationals Win!
by Bryan Hulbert and Bill Wright

KNOXVILLE, Iowa (August 13, 2016) – In a race that will go down as one of the best ever run at the Knoxville Raceway, the 56th annual 5-hour ENERGY Knoxville Nationals presented by Casey’s General Stores found a new champion as “The Ragin’ Cajun” Jason Johnson brought a near capacity crowd to their feet with a hair raising battle with Donny Schatz to claim Sprint Car racing’s biggest prize.

“Parked it. B.C.!” screamed the Louisiana native as he immediately dedicated his win to Bryan Clauson.

Asked about his nearly race long battle with the nine-time Knoxville Nationals Champion; Johnson stated, “I wasn’t giving up. I mean, this is the biggest race of the year, and the biggest race of my career. It was a golden opportunity, and I needed to make the most of it and I know he wasn’t happy with me for crowding him but $!&% I wanted to win.”

Bringing up a comment by Jason under the break of needing the second half to go with as few cautions as possible, Johnson explained, “It really made a difference. My guys gave me a great racecar. I was worried about blistering my tires, but I’ve got to thank my fellow competitor, Shane Stewart. I’ve spent a lot of time talking with him about how to race this track, and I was just trying to stay patient and run him [Donny Schatz] down and when I got by him, I stayed patient for a few laps but I just couldn’t stay patient anymore. It was time to go.”

While Jason occupied the outside of the front row, it was Daryn Pittman who took off with the race lead with Jason Johnson in tow. Working to third on the second round, Donny Schatz worked smoothly around the bottom of the Knoxville Raceway with Jason Johnson to his front.

Coming up on the tenth lap, the leaders began closing in on the back of the field. Giving Johnson the advantage to close the gap, the MVT No. 41 worked the cushion as Pittman rolled the bottom side. Completing the ninth circuit, Pittman came very close to a slower car at the bottom of turn four, just as Jason Johnson shot off the fourth turn. Closing more on the tenth round, Johnson made a break for the lead on Lap 11.

Off the fourth turn, the cushion was the line for Jason to grab the point, but it would be short lived as Pittman drove back around the Priority Aviation No. 41 to lead Lap 12. With the Bad Boy Buggies No. 15 taking over the runner-up spot in the mix, Schatz brought a full head of steam behind him to grab the top spot on the Lap 13.

Putting the Great Clips No. 9 to third, Johnson returned to the cushion with Schatz in the crosshairs.

The caution flew on lap 16 for Craig Dollansky, who suffered a failed engine. Johnson rolled the center of the first turn to no avail as Kerry Madsen made his presence known with a high side pass off the second turn to grab third from Pittman in the Keneric Racing No. 1AUS. Struggling to get up to speed, Pittman ended up three wide to hold onto the fourth spot. Finally fighting off the challenge, Pittman went to work to regain lost ground.

Still keeping pace with Schatz for the lead, Johnson began searching around the track, vacating the cushion as the mandatory caution flew on Lap 26.

With adjustments made, the field went back to green with Johnson on a mission…keeping pace with Schatz as Kerry Madsen worked to get around the pair. Going to the cushion, Johnson built his momentum, taking the race lead off the fourth turn of the 27th lap.

Side-by-side for several laps, Donny worked the bottom side as Johnson continued on the cushion. Pulling away slowly from the No. 15, Johnson found traffic on Lap 33. Nearly climbing the wall off the fourth turn on Lap 34, the bobble allowed Schatz to bring the No. 41 back into his grasp.

Under a second behind, Schatz had his hands full as Kerry Madsen powered to by the No. 15 on Lap 38.

Into the final ten rounds, the leaders found themselves in heavy traffic as the race for second heated up again with Schatz retaking the spot on Lap 41. Carrying a huge run into the second spot, the race of the lead was on. On trip No. 44 around Knoxville, the slide jobs came, as Schatz delivered an onslaught of haymaker moves with Johnson returning in kind.

With under five laps to go, the scream of the crowd roared louder than the cars as Johnson ran the right rear of his No. 41 on the ragged edge with traffic about to come into play. With three laps to go, off the fourth turn, Johnson nearly tagged the wall. The bobble was just what Donny needed as the No. 15 was ferocious around the bottom of the Knoxville Raceway.

To the white flag, the stage was set as Johnson entered the final two turns. Powering the bottom side, it was all or nothing as Donny gave it one last run, but it was not to be as Jason Johnson worked to the checkered flag a mere .168 seconds over the nine-time champion. The win is also Johnson’s third at the Knoxville Raceway in 410cid competition.

Donny’s runner-up finish is the 12th time in as many years that Schatz has been on the podium at the Knoxville Nationals. “We did everything we could,” he said. “Jason [Johnson] did a great job. I didn’t think you could run that hard a pace for 50 laps, but he did, and once he got out there, I tried everything to catch him and just couldn’t do it,” commented Schatz from the second podium step.

Running in the top-five just over half the race, Oklahoma’s Shane Stewart worked to the final podium step in the Larson/Marks Racing No. 2s, despite suffering an engine miscue in the latter part of the race. “I actually have to say thanks to Justin (Marks) and Kyle (Larson),” he said. “Justin had a tremendous day today, and we were hoping to carry that through tonight, but my car was really, really, good. We actually lost a cylinder about halfway through the end of the last segment, and just had to try to hang on, but congratulations to Jason, Bobbi, and his whole clan. It’s a huge race to win, and a hard one to win, and he did a great job.”

After leading the opening rounds, Daryn Pittman ended up fourth. Having to race his way in through the B-Feature, Kyle Larson tore a path through the field from 21st to fifth in the Finley Farms Special No. 57.

Jamie Veal crossed as the highest finishing Australian with a sixth place run with Chad Kemenah seventh. Greg Hodnett was eighth with Ian Madsen ninth. The top ten rounded out with David Gravel.

Starting off with the E-Feature, Jon Agan led wire to wire, with the D-Feature won by Austin McCarl. In the C-Feature, the top spot went to Davey Heskin. In the non-stop, 22 lap B-Feature, it was Kyle Larson who grabbed the win.

Best appearing car of this year’s 5-hour ENERGY Knoxville Nationals presented by Casey’s General Stores was the Blazin’ Racing No. 82 driven by Dusty Zomer. Best appearing crew was won by the team of the Josh Baughman Racing No. 17. Each team received $500.

Being interviewed prior to the race, Greg McCormick with the Blazin’ Racing Team, let everyone know that the money was to be donated to the family of Bryan Clauson. The night’s 50/50 winner donated their winnings, worth $20,560, to the Clauson family as well.

Rookie of the Year honors went to Matt Juhl in the Octane Ink No. 09. Juhl advanced from the C-Feature to finish 16th in the ‘B’. The Jesse Hockett Mr. Sprint Car Award presented by Cox Fabrication was awarded to Jamie Veal, who is the first Australian to earn the title since it began in 2002. The 2016 Mechanic of the race was earned by JJR Crew Chief, Phil Dietz.

Montieth Scores Second Williams Grove Win Of Season, Franek Scores URC

8/12/16
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


Mechanicsburg – Brian Montieth of Phoenixville outraced Fawn Grove’s Matt Campbell to pick up his second Williams Grove Speedway sprint car victory of the season on Friday night.

Campbell led untl the final lap and a half when Montieth got by for the win.

In the URC Sprint main, URC point leader Davie Franek proved victorious, scoring in 360 action for the first time at the track although he already owned a pair of 358 sprint car wins at the oval.

Rodney Westhafer led only the first lap of the 25-lap sprint car main before the red flag unfurled for a flip in the first turn that saw Nicole Bower leave the speedway.

Bower was uninjured.

Westhafer started on the pole of the main and Campbell flanked him and the pair ran one-two until the halfway point when Cambpell was able to slice across the turns for the lead.

But all the while Cambpell was working on Westhafer, 10th starter Montieth was moving forward, up to fifth on the eighth lap and then fourth over Cory Haas on the same lap as Cambpell took the lead.

After getting control, Cambpell at times struggled with lapped cars as Montieth continued his march, taking second from Westhafer with eight laps to go.

Witih four laps to go, Montieth had caught Cambpell for the lead but just then Cambpell made some great moves in traffic that proved to buy him some time and that coupled with a Montieth miscue in the second turn with three to go, again gave Campbell some breathing room.

But with two to go Montieth had made up for his mistake and the then followed Cambpell down the backchute with a run before blasting to the inside in the third and fourth turns to take command for the win, his first since April 22 at the track.

Westhafer was third followed by Brock Zearfoss and Austin Hogue.

Sixth through 10th went to Cory Haas, Alan Krimes, Doug Esh, Tim Glatfelter and Rick Lafferty.

Heats went to Esh, Krimes and Zearfoss.

Montieth walked away with $4,300 for his win including a $500 bonus for winning from the fifth row.  His winning margin was .085 seconds.

Doug Esh won the Jim Campbell Jr. Hard Charger worth $300 while Glenndon Forsythe was the lucky driver picked to win $500 also in honor of Campbell.

The URC main had Justin Whittall leading the first 11 laps before third starter Franek went out front off of turn four.

But Whittall proved tough to pass for Franek as he bolted back into control as the pair hit the first corner but then Franek himself came back after Whittall to make the pass stick in the next set of turns before pulling away.

Fifth starter Chuck Hebing mixed it up throughout the event, eventually ending up second, 1.754 seconds behind at the finish.

Finishing third was Eric Tomecek followed by Jason Schultz and Josh Weller, who completed a whale of a run from the 18th starting spot.

Sixth through 10th went to Derek Locke, Whittall who faded late, Jimmy Stitzel, Curt Michael and Glenndon Forsythe.

Heats went to Robbie Stillwaggon, Hebing and Chris Coyle.

Rico Abreu Parks it for B.C. on Friday Night at Knoxville!
Kraig Kinser Earns Saturday A main Starting Spot with World Challenge Win
by Bryan Hulbert and Bill Wright

KNOXVILLE, Iowa (August 12, 2016) – Make it 196 different winners at the Knoxville Raceway as California’s Rico Abreu parked the Abreu Vineyards No. 24 in Victory Lane for the first time on FVP/Speed Sport Qualifying Night at the famed half-mile to earn the 17th starting spot in Saturday’s 56th annual 5-hour ENERGY Knoxville Nationals presented by Casey’s General Stores.

“We just parked it for B.C.!” screamed Rico across the Public Addresses System to the thunderous approval of a nearly packed front stretch grandstand.

“I was trying to pick and choose,” commented Rico when asked about having to work slower traffic. Revealing how fortunate he was to win, Rico spent most of the race battling a car that changed handling characteristics with each stab of the throttle, “My Wing Valve actually broke so it would roll back on the straightaways, and then I’d get in the corner, and it’d roll back forward, but Paul Silva builds a great car along with EMI and Speedway Engines. It takes track position, and good decisions to get it all put together to win these races.”

With a start that couldn’t have gone any better for Rico, the bottom line was wide open for the No. 24 to shoot into the race lead through the first two turns with Danny Lasoski also taking advantage to move from sixth to second on the opening lap. Advancing back to the top-four after falling back on the start, Brian Brown raced into the third spot on Lap 2 to begin closing in on Lasoski.

Having fallen back on the initial start, Greg Hodnett had the pedals turning hard in the Hoffman No. 27, taking over third on the eighth round from Brown with Lasoski falling to third on the 10th lap. Closing fast on Abreu as the leader worked into traffic, the chance to pounce didn’t present itself as Rico continued to pull away.

Remaining under green as the leaders picked their way around the back markers, Lap 14 saw a family battle setting up as Brian Brown closed again on Danny Lasoski. Still not able to get the run, “The Shark” was closing fast as Logan Schuchart let traffic play to his advantage.

With Rico still untouched at the front of the field, business continued to pick up to be in the top-four as Schuchart was all over Brian Brown in the closing laps. Swapping back and forth, the slide jobs came to a stop as Brown’s night came to a drastic and sudden stop. Trying to avoid the spun No. 23s of Trey Starks, Brown tried the top, hoping to squeeze between the wall and Starks, but it was all over as Brown slammed into the No. 23s, ending his run into the A-Feature.

The race’s lone caution on Lap 21, Rico had to outrun Greg Hodnett on the restart. Able to keep the No. 27 at bay, Abreu went on to win by 1.536 seconds.

Greg Hodnett was runner-up and will start 18th in Saturday’s A-Feature. Asked about the caution, Hodnett replied, “After the yellow, I thought I lost air in the Bleeders and was really just flopping around too much. I thought if we would have kept running there I may have had a shot, but I don’t know. We were just screwing around on the bottom trying to protect ourselves and get a run off each corner and work towards Saturday night.”

Taking third, and earning the 19th starting spot on Saturday was Danny Lasoski. While “The Dude” is never happy finishing anything less than first, the winningest driver at Knoxville was more than pleased to have made the show. “However you have to get in this race, is how we have to get in this race. I’ve seen the No. 15 win from the back and win, and I’ve come from the back and run fourth so anything is possible.”

Having to make up ground after falling back to sixth from the pole on the start, Lucas Wolfe rebounded to the final transfer and spot No. 20 in Saturday’s A-Main. “I got fortunate on the restart obviously with Brown getting caught up and luckily I was good enough to get a decent run to get by Logan [Schuchart] there but it’s just a big relief to make it in.”

Rolling from 16th, Tim Shaffer came on very strong in the final six laps, coming from 10th to fifth and will now start 11th in Saturday’s B-Main. Logan Schuchart ended up sixth with Joey Saldana seventh. Stevie Smith was eighth with Sheldon Haudenschild and Brady Bacon completing the top-ten.

With split qualifying among 77 drivers, Pennsylvania drivers proved to be the quickest. The fastest time in the first group was run by Lucas Wolfe with a time of 15.096 seconds. The second group was topped by Jacob Allen with a time of 15.294 seconds. Group A Heat Races were won by Sheldon Haudenschild, Bill Balog, and Brady Bacon. Group B Heat Races were headed by Dakota Hendrickson, Willie Croft, and Brian Brown. The C-Feature was taken by Parker Price-Miller. Twin B-Mains were won by Dustin Selvage and Jacob Allen.

Kraig Kinser Cashes in $10,000 and Golden Ticket with World Challenge Victory!

Kraig Kinser will be the 25th starter in the championship event Saturday night after winning the $10,000 Speed Sport World Challenge. It was the fifth win of the Bloomington, Indiana driver’s career at Knoxville, and improved his Saturday night standing from his original starting spot in the C main. A “missing man formation” preceded the World Challenge, honoring the late Shane Krikke, Bob Trostle and Bryan Clauson.

Jason Sides shot out from his starting spot outside the front row at the beginning of the 20-lap event ahead of Kinser and Paul McMahan. Kinser shot around Sides on the second circuit and began pulling away. With three lap sin, Brad Sweet spun, collecting Lynton Jeffrey. Only Sweet would return.

Kinser led Sides, McMahan, Danny Dietrich and James McFadden back to green. McFadden and Dietrich battled hard for the third spot exchanging it twice. By lap eleven, Ian Madsen got into the fray and shot by McFadden for fourth. A wild battle saw four-wide chaos for second, third, fourth and fifth between Madsen, McFadden, Dietrich and Sides.

While Kinser rolled up front, Madsen grabbed second with two to go, and was followed by McFadden, Dietrich and a late charging Jamie Veal at the checkers. Sides, Brooke Tatnell, Terry McCarl, Kerry Madsen and McMahan rounded out the top ten.

“I felt like there was somebody right on me there,” said Kinser in Victory Lane. “I was taking it cautious around the bottom, trying not to screw up and get off that line. I just felt like I kept slowing down more and more. I knew I had to pick it up, and was just waiting for Doug Clark to wave that white flag. We didn’t have the best of weekends starting out, but this is a great ending to our night!”
