Port Royal Speedway to Serve Up Open Wheel Madness 3 in Final 410 Tune Up for World of Outlaws URC 360 Sprints and PASS/IMCA 305 Sprints Fill Out Card

PORT ROYAL, PAa- Port Royal Speedways returns this week for the final Open Wheel Madness event of the season! Open Wheel Madness 3 will feature the Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Cars, the United Racing Club 360 Sprint Cars and the final points race of the season for the PASS/IMCA Penns Valley Meat Market 305 Sprint Cars.



Entering the weekend’s madness, Logan Wagner has already wrapped up his second consecutive Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Car Championship. This event is also not a points event for the 410 division. Wagner leads the division with 5 wins this season as well.



This will be the final chance for drivers to get track time and prepare for the NOS Energy Drink World of Outlaws two-day visit next weekend. With the Outlaws on tap and many tracks done for the season, you can expect a high car count and several invaders to chase the $4000 paying to the winner.



Other winners at the track this season include Aaron Reutzel, Trey Starks, Kyle Reinhardt, Anthony Macri, Jeff Miller (3), AJ Flick, Jared Esh, Dylan Cisney (2), Lucas Wolfe (2), Lance Dewease (2), Danny Dietrich (2), Blane Heimbach and Ryan Taylor.

Also, on the card will be the third and final visit of the URC 360 Sprint Cars. 410 regulars Ryan Smith (April) and Kyle Reinhardt (July) picked up victories in the previous two visits to the Speed Palace for the series while pulling double duty action.



With only three remaining races on their 2019 schedule, Chad Layton enters the event with a 75-point advantage over second place Josh Well and a _165 advantage over third place Curt Michael. Austin Bishop (-323) and Jason Shultz (-651) round out the top five. Expect several drivers to once again pull double duty as well.

Finally, the Penns Valley Meat Market PASS/IMCA 305 Sprint Car will wrap up their Port Royal season with their final points event of the season. Ken Duke currently holds a 65-point advantage over Devin Adams followed by Nick Seigart (-70), Jonathan Jones (-75) and Zach Newlin (-95) in the top five.



Duke and Sweigart lead the division with two wins a piece this season while Adams, Landon Price and Garrett Bard also own victories at the speedway. The 305 sprint Cars are coming off an exciting weekend where Sweigart pulled off a last lap pass of Newlin and Doug Dodson to claim the victory in the 8th Annual Blue-Collar Classic. Kassidy Kreitz also added the excitement and won a non-qualifiers feature on the final turn as well.



This weekend is also the annual Port Royal Fall Foliage Days Parade. The local tradition will begin at the fairgrounds at 1pm and will close down 8th street and the main street through Port Royal until approximately 1:30 pm. So, plan accordingly. All track gates and pit gates open at 1pm with 410 Time Trials set to begin at 4:00pm EST.

David Gravel aiming for 50 wins with Midwest doubleheader on the horizon Intense championship points battle moves to Lakeside Speedway, Lake Ozark Speedway

Josie McIntyre Photo
KANSAS CITY, KS – Oct. 15, 2019 – David Gravel and Jason Johnson Racing have put together an impressive first year together – nine wins, 20 Quick Times and currently sit third in points. With six races to go this season Gravel has a specific goal he’d like to accomplish.

“I’d like to win one more race, hopefully two,” said Gravel, who has 48 career World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series wins. “I’d like to get to that magical number fifty for me in my career. That’s a goal that’s really important to me. I hope to do that.”

He could reach that goal this weekend with the World of Outlaws on Oct. 18 going to Lakeside Speedway for the FVP Platinum Battery Showdown and on Oct. 19 returning to Lake Ozark Speedway for the Jason Johnson Classic.

Both races will play a big part in the World of Outlaws’ championship battle, which Gravel still has a part in. He and second-place Donny Schatz had bad luck at Tri-State Speedway and lost points to leader Brad Sweet – Gravel is now 102 points behind Sweet and Schatz is 30 points back. However, just one weekend can create a large swing in the points, as Schatz had cut Sweet’s points lead in half after the Williams Grove Speedway doubleheader before going to Tri-State.

Gravel has finished third in points the last three years – driving for CJB Motorsports. He has a solid hold of the position for the remainder of the year and could find himself finishing third for the fourth year in-a-row. There is a slim chance for him to catch Sweet without a lot of luck, but Schatz is only 72 points ahead of him.

“My goal is to keep the front two guys honest,” Gravel said. “You know, we have an extremely slim chance of making anything happen, especially with the rainout [at Terre Haute]. I mean, just to be in the conversation at the end of the season with a first-year team, with a team like this, it’s just been really cool. We’ll just try to finish out strong. Be competitive every night.”

He and JJR have unloaded with speed all season long, being fastest in practice 11 times and collecting 20 Quick Times, so far. There’s a combination of elements that have helped the No. 41 car be fast early on in the night, said Philip Dietz, crew chief for JJR.

“Our engines have to run good. They have to be fueled right,” he said. “Just our car balance in general has to be really, really good to start the night off.”

Gravel will be going for his first win at Lakeside Speedway and Lake Ozark Speedway this week. He finished 14th at the half-mile Lakeside Speedway last year. It’s a track he said he usually struggles at. However, he and JJR have been one of the most dominate teams on half-mile tracks this year. They won at Calistoga Speedway, Knoxville Raceway and twice at Williams Grove Speedway.

“We’ve been really good on big tracks, so I’m hoping to go there and qualify good and just keep doing what we’re doing,” Gravel said.

Lake Ozark Speedway may be his next best opportunity to pick up another win before the end of the season. He finished second the last two races there.

The Eldon, Mo. track is also a home track for JJR. Their shop is eight miles away from the speedway. Gravel knows a win at the 1/3-mile track would be special for the team, especially with the event being the Jason Johnson Classic – which will pay $10,410-to-win due to an added bonus by FK Rod Ends.

“That’s a track I’m pretty confident at and excited to go back to,” Gravel said. “To win it for Bobbi (Johnson), and for Jason’s race, that would be very cool. Definitely looking forward to that. They’re going to have a lot of friends, family and sponsors there, so going to be a pretty cool moment.”

York Haven, Pa. (10/12/19) – Chase Dietz is still in his first season with the Rick Lefever-owned team and doesn’t have a lot of experience at BAPS Motor Speedway.

Those two factors probably didn’t help expectations Saturday night at the York Haven facility. Still, this team is starting to jell and find speed.

That was obvious in the 30-lap main event. Dietz fell back to third, but he made a late-race charge to earn a confidence-building victory worth a $5,000 payday.

“This was huge,” Dietz said. “We had a pretty good year at Lincoln. We would be consistent for a little bit and then fall off. We messed around with a few things the last couple of weeks, racing away from where we are comfortable [at Williams Grove].

“To come here where we don’t get to run too often and feel as good as we did and race as well as we did, it’s a great thing for us.”

Billy Dietrich beat Dietz into Turn 1 at the drop of the green flag, but he didn’t stay there for long. Fourth-place starter Freddie Rahmer ripped around the bottom of three and four to pass both Dietz and Dietrich to take the lead at the completion of Lap 1.

Dietz took second from Dietrich, as Rahmer opened up a 1.208-second lead by the fifth circuit. Just as the lap was scored, Dylan Norris spun and stopped at the exit of Turn 2. During the caution period, Hunter Mackison stopped on the frontstretch.

Rahmer pulled away on the restart, leaving Dietz to dice with Brian Montieth for second. There was also a three-car battle for the fourth position, with Ryan Smith, finally, slipping past Brock Zearfoss and Dietrich.

Brian Montieth and Dietz were back-and-forth for the second position on Lap 13. Montieth, finally grabbed the position coming off the fourth corner.

Montieth was the fastest car on the track with 10 laps to go. With Rahmer pinned on the bottom, Montieth used the top to close to within .338 seconds by the time Lap 16 was on the board. Rahmer countered and moved to the top, opening up a .684-second lead on Lap 18.

But, Rahmer’s race came to an abrupt end on Lap 20. He shot into Turn 1 and misjudged the corner, slapping the fence and suffering significant damage to his car.

Rahmer’s misfortune gave Dietz new life. He stalked Montieth on the restart and made his move on Lap 21, sliding Montieth through the first and second corner. Montieth didn’t give and ducked under Dietz coming out of the second corner to maintain the top spot.

Dietz pulled the same move on Lap 24. Montieth tried to duck back under off the corner, but Dietz was able to carry enough speed off the top of Turn 2 to wrestle the top spot away.

“It was just more being patient," Dietz said. "As we got to lapped traffic, it was more intense between lapped cars and knowing where to go. I figured, at one point, we were going to have to move around. When Freddie had that incident, it gave me another chance.

“[Brian] peeled off and tried to run the middle. As soon as I saw him go to the top, I was going to be even better. It gave me more open air and allowed me to drive into the corner like I needed to. I kept working it and working it and knew I would have a good chance. It came down to being patient and getting there when I could.”

Dietz couldn’t afford to be patient once he got the lead. Smith was on the charge and disposed of Montieth for second coming out of Turn 2 on Lap 27.

Smith was 1.354 seconds back when he took second. He chopped the margin down to .705 seconds on Lap 28 and was on Dietz’s rear coming to the white flag.

But, lapped cars didn’t play out in Smith’s favor. Meanwhile, Dietz nailed the bottom to get past a back marker in Turn 2 and took the win by .594 seconds at the stripe.

“I saw him in lapped traffic a couple of times,” Dietz said. “I thought he was almost going to get me out of four, because we got tight between lapped cars.

“At the end, I could see his shadow, but I wasn’t sure what was going on. I felt pretty good on the bottom to middle, so I just committed there and was going to make him drive around me. You’ve got to adjust to the track but also adjust to what you need. It was just great to go back and forth with those guys.”

Smith settled for second, with Montieth earning a third-place finish. Brock Zearfoss and Lucas Wolfe completed the top five in the main event.

“One [lapped car] went one way, and the other didn’t go the way I thought he was going to,” Smith said. “That’s just racing. That’s probably the best we have been here all year in the 410.

“It’s good to race to the front from seventh and have a shot at it. We just didn’t get it done. We had a shot, just lapped cars didn’t fall my way. All and all, second, another second, and another second.”

Chad Layton took the lead from Ryan Smith and went on to score the victory in the 360/358 Challenge featuring the United Racing Club.

Smith got the jump on Layton at the start, but it didn’t last long. The United Racing Club point leader went to the outside of Smith in Turns 1 and 2 on Lap 8.

But, Layton didn’t get away. Smith took the lead back on a Lap 9 restart. Six laps later, Layton regained the point and never looked back. Freddie Rahmer also passed Smith for second on Lap 15 and settled for second. Smith, Brock Zearfoss, and Lucas Wolfe completed the top five.

Christopher Bell wins at Tri-State Speedway as driver, owner Bell wins an eventful night in Haubstadt, Brad Sweet extends points lead

DB3 Inc  Photo
HAUBSTADT, IN – Oct. 13, 2019 – After winning $100,000 in April through NASCAR’s Dash 4 Cash, Christopher Bell already knew what he would like to do with the money: purchase his own Sprint Car.

Six months later, the Norman, Okla. driver parked his self-owned No. 21 car in Victory Lane for the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series’ Sunday night event at Tri-State Speedway.

The victory was his fifth career World of Outlaws win – first as an owner in the Series – and first win at the speedway.

“So, I had four Outlaw wins coming into today and I promise you those four Outlaw wins would be in my, arguably top-five, definitely top-ten of my favorite wins of my life,” said an elated Bell. “To get number five here with my own race car and a group of friends working on this thing is really special.”

The Indiana race was Bell’s fourth time in his own car, which he built with friend Chad Boat. He already had one win in it, too. However, throughout the night, you would’ve thought he’d been racing it for years. Bell even claimed he wasn’t good at the quarter-mile track.

He first dispelled that allegation with strong runs in his Drydene Heat race, where he finished second, and the DIRTVision Fast Pass Dash, where he finished third. In both races he had a car capable of charging to the lead but ran out of laps to do so.

In the Feature, Bell had 40 laps to accomplish his mission.

Sweet jumped to the lead at the start of the race with Brent Marks and Bell in tow. However, five cautions – which separately involved drivers such as David Gravel, Sheldon Haudenschild and Donny Schatz – in the first 12 laps hindered the top three from finding a rhythm.

Bell highlighted his speed in that time span, sliding by Marks for second during a short run in between cautions.

After the accident on Lap 12, the race went caution free for the remaining 28 laps. With Schatz mired in the back of the field, Sweet was poised to have a strong points day, especially if he could secure the win. However, Bell wasn’t sympathetic to his cause.

Both almost saw their winning desire vanish on the restart with 28 laps to go. Third-place Kerry Madsen dove underneath Bell and Sweet in turn three, eyeing the lead. The Australian couldn’t find the grip to exit the corner ahead of them and fell back to third by turn one.

The battle was then Sweet versus Bell. Sweet ran high, while Bell slung his car around the bottom of the track, creeping closer and closer to the NAPA Auto Parts No. 49 car every lap. And Sweet knew it.

On Lap 16 the Californian stole Bell’s line, running the bottom in turns three and four. Bell countered his move and switched to the high side of the track.

The beneficiary of the swap proved to be Bell. He got a run off turn four, propelling him to Sweet’s rear bumper down the front stretch. He stayed high into turn one, as Sweet went low and, again, charged off the corner with momentum. This time, he was able to use it to dart underneath Sweet into turn three and clear him for the lead by turn four, officially taking it on Lap 18.

“I felt good all night long and I knew our car was really close,” Bell said. “Honestly, we didn’t really change very much all night long. We kept getting those short stints and I felt fine. I felt like I just needed to get some time underneath of us and get going.”

The race was then Bell’s to lose. He distanced himself from Sweet, even with lap traffic creating an unpredictable obstacle course in front of him. Sweet began to fade by the halfway point, losing second to Madsen and eventually falling to fifth. Madsen didn’t have anything for Bell, but another threat behind him did.

After finding himself at the back of the field due to being involved in an early caution, Haudenschild moved his way into fifth with 19 laps to go. He was third with nine laps to go and second with five laps to go. The NOS Energy Drink No. 17 was an unstoppable bullet. But time was not in his favor and Bell worked lap traffic with ease.

However, worry did set in for Bell in the closing laps, unsure how his car would handle as the track changed and if he would have enough fuel to finish.

“This track just changes so much,” Bell said. “I’ve never gone good here before in my life. This is the first time I’ve come to Haubstadt and been competitive. I learned a lot today.”

By the time Bell sped past the waving checkered flag, he had a 3.7 second lead over Haudenschild.

“I set us back tonight with qualifying and getting in that mess in four, just really put us behind,” Haudenschild said. “After I did that my goal was to get back to where I was and go from there. On this type of track we know we’re going to have restarts. Just tried to get track position as early and quick as I could on those restarts and just try to pick them off after that.”

Madsen rounded out the podium with his brother Ian Madsen finishing fourth and Sweet ended the night fifth. After being involved in two accidents, Schatz managed a 13th-place finish but is now 30 points behind Sweet.

Wins are all that matter to Bell when it comes to racing with the World of Outlaws. Every one of them he cherishes, he said, especially when they’re with friends.

“Everyone works their tails off on it, but it’s a lot of fun because we’re all friends,” Bell said. “Just very thankful to be here driving this thing.”

Nick Sweigart wins 8th Annual Blue-Collar Classic at Port Royal Speedway

Bill McIntyre photo
As Zach Newlin and Doug Dodson swapped the lead, 12th starter Nick Sweigart passed them both and went on to win the Keystone RaceSaver Challenge for the 305 Sprint cars Saturday night at
Port Royal Speedway.

Other winners during the annual Blue Collar Classic included track champion Andrew Yoder in the limited late models, Brad Mitch in the extreme stocks and Eric Boozel in the 4-cylinder pure stocks.

Port Royal returns to action Saturday evening with Open Wheel Madness 3 featuring the 410, 360 and 305 sprints cars.

Sweigart's second Port Royal win of the season was worth over $1,100 including bonus money.

“It all played out there on the last lap,” Sweigart said. “Those guys ran a hell of a race the entire race. They were trying their best and I was sitting back there in third and could see what I needed to do.
It all worked out.”

“Doug slid me and then (Sweigart) blows around us on the outside," NewIin said. "I thought I could slide him in three and four, but I didn’t have enough to get in front of him. He must have drove one hell of a race because he pulled 12. It was my race to lose and I lost it. We’ve been running pretty crappy, so I’ll take second.”

After trading the lead with Newlin, Dodson settled for third.

“That was a lot of fun,” Dodson said. “It sucks to end up third, but racing and dicing and running close, I’m grinning to be a part of it. It’s great to be this competitive here for such a big race. We keep
getting better here. Hopefully, we can click off a win soon. To be racing for the win in such a huge race is just awesome. I was in Germany all week and couldn’t help. They had a really nice piece
ready.”

Newlin controlled the race after immediately taking the lead from his second starting spot.

Third starter Doug Dodson closed in on Newlin when they started lapping cars. Sweigart, meanwhile, was pounding the top advancing forward from his 12th starting spot.

Sweigart, of Myerstown, took third with 10 laps to go and quickly closed on the top two.

“I didn’t know how lapped traffic was going to play out,” Sweigart said. “I knew we were right there. We just needed something to go our way. I definitely had the car. The crew had it hooked up. It all
panned out. This is awesome. This one was on my bucket list.”

Dodson pressured Newlin for the lead, but Newlin kept him at bay and put a lapped car in between them.

But, the only yellow of the 25-lap feature flew with three laps to go.

Dodson and Newlin swapped the lead at each end of the speedway following the restart. Sweigart waited patiently in third until the final lap when he made the winning move beating Newlin and Dodson. Garrett Bard and Christian Rumsey completed the top five.

National RaceSaver Champion, Pennsylvania State Champion, and Pennsylvania Sprint Series Champion Ken Duke Jr. raced from the 21st starting spot to finish sixth earning the Hard Charger Award. He also leads the Port Royal points.

“We were not good earlier tonight,” Duke said. “In the heat race, I screwed up on the start. I made so many mistakes and it put us behind the eight-ball. We got it going a little bit in the B-main. I knew
we’d be good in the feature, but I didn’t know we’d be that good. I wish there was a few more cautions. I’ll take it 21st to sixth at Port Royal in biggest race of the year against the best competition in the country. I’ll take that any day.”

Kevin Adams, Kevin Nagy, Jeff Geiges and Jaremi Hanson rounded out the top 10.

Dodson set overall quick time with a lap of 18.782. Heat races for the 50 cars were won by Nagy, Rumsey, Sweigart, Statler, Kepner and Scott

Kassidy Kreitz took the lead from Drew Ritchey on the final lap to win the Founder’s Cup race for the 305 non-qualifiers. Ritchey led the first 14 laps before Kreitz’s inside move coming off turn four. She is a guaranteed starter for next year’s RaceSaver Challenge. It was her second win in the event. Ritchey, Jay Krout, Justin Clark and Wally Eshenaur completed the top five.

In the 25-lap feature for the Mason-Dixon limited late models, it was track champion Andrew Yoder dominating the event for his seventh win of the season. He earned $1,500.

Devin Hart came out on top of a torrid battle for second in the closing laps. Justin Weaver, Dillan Stake and Chad Myers completed the top five.  Trent Brenneman, Shawn Shoemaker, James Lichliter, Derick Garman and Ryan Zook rounded out the top 10.

Stake, Yoder, Weaver and Hart won the heat races.

Brad Mitch won the 15-lap extreme stock feature after taking the lead from Pete Leister. Brandon Moser, Dustin Hoffman and Kevin Imes completed the top five.

Eric Boozel won the 15-lap main event for the 4-cylinder pure stocks. Adam Campbell, Justin Williamson, Tim Campbell and Ricky Weaver Jr. completed the top five.

Port Royal Speedway Returns to Racing with 8th Annual Blue-Collar Classic

Bill McIntyre photo

By- Justin Snyder

PORT ROYAL, Pa- Port Royal Speedway returns to action Saturday, October 12, for the 8th Annual Blue-Collar Classic featuring the Keystone RaceSaver Challenge hosted by the PASS/IMCA for the 305 Sprint Cars.

The annual race is one of the biggest events for the IMCA 305 Sprint Cars on the East Coast with the overall purse reaching nearly $16,000 including $800 to win for the A-Main feature. There will also be a special Founder’s Cup Non-Qualifier race as well paying $300 to win.

Including bonus money, the winner of the event could take home $1500.

Along with the hosting PASS division, the challenge race brings together multiple IMCA 305 sprint regions to include the Tri State RaceSaver Region (TSRS), the Capital Region Sprint Agency (CRSA), the Virginia Sprint Series (VSS) and the Laurel Highlands region.

There will be $250 from Beerhill Gang TV and $250 from Penns Valley Meat Market to be split up to heat race winners ($50) and A-Main hard chargers ($200). Also, for the taking will be a $200 Seniority Bonus, a $200 Frequent Racer Bonus and a $300 Travel Bonus. Nonstarters will receive $100 two money.

Past winners of the event are Darren Miller, Kyle Smith, Jeff Miller (2), Jeff Geiges, Jake Waters and Sean Campbell.

Also, on tap for the Blue-Collar classic will be the Mason Dixon Shootout Limited Late Model series racing for $1500 to win and $130 to start. This will be the final race of the season for the Mason Dixon series.

This will also be the final points race for the Selinsgrove Ford Limited Late Model Series, though points leader Andrew Yoder has already wrapped up the championship at the speedway. However, Derrick Garman, Devin Hart and Kenny Yoder are currently in a tight battle for second and only 15-points separate the three drivers.

Last year’s event was won by Trent Brenneman over Justin Weaver, Andrew Yoder, Dylan Yoder and Shaun Jones.

The Juniata Junction Xtreme Stocks will be on hand as well, racing for a $1000 winner’s share. This will also be their final points event of the 2019 season.

Currently Brad Mitch holds a commanding 165-point advantage over second place Walt Peters with Chuck Bryner (-170), Pete Leister (-275) and Dustin Hoffman (-285) rounding out the top five. Mitch has won three races this season.

Last year Bill Powell captured the $1000 title and it led to him picking up the 2018 track title as well.

Finally, the Four-Cylinder Pure Stocks will compete for $300 to win. Last year Eric Boozel used a last corner pass to pick up the feature win and he will be looking to back up his win in 2019.

Danny Dietrich Wins 2019 Williams Grove Speedway Track Title For Kauffman Montieth is Diamond Series champion, Doug Hammaker earns 358 sprint track title

Josie McIntyre Photo

OPENING A DREAM: BRENT MARKS WINS THE NATIONAL OPEN AT WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY Marks pockets $65,000 for winning the National Open, his first win of the season

DB3 Inc Photo
Williams Grove Speedway announcer Bruce Ellis held up a checkered flag to Brent Marks.

“Do you want to read what that says?” he asked the Myerstown, Pa. driver.

Marks grabbed the flag and held it eye level. Fixated on the printed logo he earnestly said, “Williams Grove National Open winner.”

“That’s you,” Ellis replied.

Marks won the 57th Champion Racing Oil National Open at Williams Grove Speedway Saturday night – his first win of the season – and pocketed the $65,000 prize.

How did he feel after Ellis proclaimed him the 2019 victor?

“I have no idea,” Marks said with a smile. “This is amazing. I’ve been wanting to win this race for a very long time. I grew up here in the infield. This is where I fell in love with Sprint Car racing. This is awesome.”

Marks described his 2019 season as frustrating. He failed to make four Features throughout the year and has said he felt like he let four potential wins slip through his fingers. Not Saturday night. Not in his home state in front of friends, family and local fans.

He showcased his determination for atonement during the final Drydene Heat race of the night. He went from fourth to second in one lap on a restart and put himself in the DIRTVision Fast Pass Dash.

He then drew the pole for the second Dash of the night and went on to win it – placing him on the outside pole for the 40-lap World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series Feature.

At the start of the National Open, Marks and polesitter Brian Brown drag raced down the front stretch toward turn one. Brown launched ahead of Marks into the corner to hold the lead, but before the two drivers could continue their duel down the backstretch a caution came out.

When it came time to stomp the throttle again, Marks acted quicker than Brown. He rocketed ahead of the FVP/Casey’s General Stores No. 21 and claimed the lead before the first turn. He led two laps before yellow lights flashed around the speed, again.

Marks chose the inside line on the restart and found himself in the same situation Brown did two laps earlier. Brown got the jump on Marks off turn four and charged ahead of him to reclaim the lead. He then began to extend his lead over Marks every lap.

On Lap nine, Brown lost traction in turn one and fought to keep his car pointed straight off turn two. His slip allowed Marks to reel him in. Daryn Pittman, in third, was also closing in on them both.

Three laps later Marks carried the momentum of a strong run off turn four to catch Brown before turn one. When they entered the turn, Marks dove underneath Brown and cleared him for the lead. Brown then lost second to Pittman the next corner.

Marks’ lead was short lived again with the caution coming out on Lap 14. After losing the lead to Brown on the last restart by starting on the bottom, Marks chose the high side for his next attempt. However, it didn’t help. Pittman bested him on the start and took the lead down the front stretch.

However, before the lap was completed a caution came out for several cars getting together in turn three – including 2018 National Open winner Lance Dewease, who could not continue. The race was then put under an Open Red, allowing teams to fuel their cars.

Marks was ready for Pittman on the restart. He rocketed ahead of the field, pulling away by half of a second when he reached the backstretch.

While Marks pulled away with the lead, Brown, Donny Schatz and Aaron Reutzel brawled for third. The trio used up the entire track for several laps trying to pass each other. Eventually Schatz and Reutzel made their way by Brown to move into third and fourth, respectively.

Heavy lap traffic became an issue for Marks by the halfway point of the Feature. Pittman closed in. And Schatz and Reutzel closed in on Pittman. A blanket could have covered the top-four with 20 laps to go.

Flashbacks of being held up in lap traffic and losing the win at Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway in June projected in Marks’ head. However, that wasn’t going to be the case this time. He learned. He wasn’t going to let another win slip away.

“I tried to play that whole race as smart as I could,” Marks said. “Tried to drive like a veteran and not get over my head. Just be super patient. Because I lost that race earlier in the year at Nashville. Kind of the same situation, you know running the bottom there with lap cars and I felt like I needed to get by them, made a mistake and lost the lead. I made sure I didn’t want to do that tonight.”

His patience with lap cars turned into car lengths gained on Pittman. Pressure from behind faded as the final laps approached. Marks was on his way to his fourth career World of Outlaws win.

Then, a caution. Paul McMahan came to a stop in turn one with a flat tire. Marks had to make two more perfect laps before he could see the checkered flag.

Pittman tried to get a run around the high side of turns one and two, but Marks was too strong on the bottom. By the time the Pennsylvanian finally saw the checkered flag, he had a 1.4 second lead over Pittman. Schatz finished third for the second night in-a-row at the speedway.

The runner-up finish for Pittman was his fifth time finishing second at the National Open. He said he would trade just about any of his win for a National Open win. He thought he might win before the caution came out when he took the lead on the restart. However, he was still pleased with his team’s overall performance – finishing second after starting sixth.

“We had a really good Roth Motorsports car for the weekend,” Pittman said. “We kept fine tuning on it, didn’t make any wholesale changes and continued to get better and better.”

For the second night in-a-row Schatz took a big chunk out of Brad Sweet’s points lead over him – with Sweet finishing ninth. Schatz is now 14 points behind Sweet. David Gravel, who finished fifth, has also crept his way into the points battle, now 88 points behind Sweet with eight races to go.

Reutzel won the National Open rookie award – finishing fourth – and Brian Montieth earned the KSE Hard Charger award with a stellar performance of charging from 26th to eighth.

Marks was the biggest winner in several ways. He celebrated the biggest win in his World Outlaws career, so far, with his family, friends and local fans and earned a large payday for his self-owned Brent Marks Racing team.

“What does it pay, sixty-five (thousand)?” Marks asked Ellis in Victory Lane.

“Sixty-five,” Ellis confirmed.

“That means everything,” Marks said after the race. “That sure as hell gets us through the winter.”

David Gravel wins first night of National Open at Williams Grove Gravel dominated the night by earning his 19th Quick Time and ninth win of the season

Josie McIntyre Photo
MECHANICSBURG, PA – Oct. 4, 2019 – A hunger had been building inside David Gravel the last three weeks.

His appetite for another win had been teased on several occasions. He set Quick Time three times since his last win in September but was unable to make the achievements relevant with another win.

Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway for the opening night of the National Open, Gravel was presented with a full course meal. He made sure to leave no crumbs for his competition.

He set Quick Time for the 19th time this season. Won his Drydene Heat race. Drew the pole for the DIRTVision Fast Pass Dash and won it. And then further demonstrated his mastery of the half-mile speedway by leading all 25 laps to claim his ninth win of the season – tying 10-time Series champion Donny Schatz for the second most wins this season. The victory was also his second win at Williams Grove Speedway this year – sixth overall.

“Just happy to Quick Time and win a race,” Gravel said, of Watertown, Conn. “Seems like the couple of races we’ve been drawing a bad pill for the Dash draw and tonight we were able to get a good draw. So just an awesome night. Finally get to show how good this car is.”

Gravel was proficient on the tacky track conditions all night. He couldn’t afford to be anything less. Fellow masters of the paper clip-shaped track, 10-time Series champion Donny Schatz and PA Posse veteran Lance Dewease had cars fast enough to keep Gravel starving for another win if he made a mistake.

At the start of the 25-lap Feature, Schatz moved his way from third to second by the second lap of the race and Dewease went from sixth to fifth before the first lap was completed.

Before they could try to make up any more ground, the caution came out on Lap two for Kerry Madsen, who lost his brakes.

On the restart Gravel launched ahead of Schatz. The Fargo, N.D.-native peeked underneath Gravel going into turn one, but the Mesilla Valley Transportation No. 41 was strong around the high side of the speedway. Gravel, again, launched ahead of the Toco Warranty No. 15 car down the backstretch.

Behind them, Dewease continued his relentless charge to the front by making the pass for fourth into turn one and then passed Cory Eliason for third-place off turn four. Schatz was his next target.

Gravel, Dewease and Schatz had already won at Williams Grove Speedway earlier this year. For Gravel, he was on a quest to cure his craving for another win. Dewease was looking for his 99th win in total at the speedway. Schatz was not only eyeing another win, but a chance to close the points gap between he and points leader Brad Sweet, who started 20th.

The caution came out again on Lap five for Jeff Halligan having an issue with his engine, which left oil on the track. Now Schatz and Dewease were close enough to Gravel to potentially spoil his night.

However, on the restart, Gravel shot ahead of the 30-car field, clearing Schatz before turn one. Both drivers went low through the first corner. Gravel, again, showed the strength of his car by being able to pull away from Schatz exiting the corner and down the backstretch.

Schatz faded away from Gravel and Dewease closed to the No. 15 car's bumper. The Fayetteville, Pa.-native stalked Schatz for several laps, while Gravel pulled away from them by more than a second. With 18 laps to go, Dewease dove underneath Schatz into turn three, cleared him for second by the apex of the corner but couldn’t hold the bottom. Dewease slid to the cushion in turn four, allowing Schatz to drive back underneath him and take the position back.

The two stayed in their respective positions for the next 15 laps. Dewease never faded from Schatz. Always kept the pressure on him. He tried to pass Schatz a few more times, but Schatz always ended the battle with the advantage.

Gravel reached lap traffic by Lap 16. It was Schatz and Dewease’s opportunity to try to make up ground on the leader.

“It was real hard,” Gravel said about the lap traffic. “If I went low the guy on the outside of me was just as fast. If they didn’t mess up it was going to be hard to get by them. Luckily Sheldon (Haudenschild) messed up once. Got by him. I was able to get by Kraig (Kinser). The top opened with Jacob (Allen) and I was able to put together a few good laps there. I don’t know how close anybody was.”

There was no pressure from behind for Gravel. Even in heavy lap traffic. With three laps to go Dewease was able to dive underneath Schatz into turn one and clear him for the runner-up spot. However, Gravel was more than two second ahead of him.

The Jason Johnson Racing team found themselves back in Victory Lane, picking up the $10,000 prize, while Dewease settled for a runner-up finish and Schatz rounded out the podium.

“We were pretty good from the start,” Dewease said. “It’s a hard field. A lot of fast race cars. I had some of the best in the country I had to pass.”

After two nights in-a-row of finishes outside the top-15 for Schatz and losing more than 30 points to Sweet, he rebounded with a podium finished and almost cut Sweet’s points lead in half. Coming into Friday night’s race Schatz was 40 points behind Sweet. He is now 26 points behind the Kasey Kahne Racing driver. However, Sweet stopped the bleeding from being worse by charging from 20th to 10th, picking up the KSE Hard Charger award.

“We were kind of hanging,” Schatz said about his race. “We’ve got to adapt to somethings and the guys did a great job with that. Hopefully we can learn from the night and make improvements for tomorrow.”

Schatz also had Ford’s new 410-c.i. motor in his car. He said he was pleased with it.

“It’s finally a relief that it’s here,” Schatz said. “You can’t say enough about these guys. I don’t think anyone will see the work and how much went into this… All we can do is keep building on it and keep working on it and that’s what we’ll do because that’s what we do.”

Friday’s night victory for Gravel and his team helped cure one hungry, but another formulated soon after with the National Open on Saturday night paying $65,000-to-win.

“It feels good to win the first night, but tomorrow is why we’re here,” Gravel said.

Williams Grove 57th Champion Racing Oil National Open Sports Biggest Sprint Payday In Oval And East History

Another Chapter In Tremendous History Of Event To Be Written October 5!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Mechanicsburg – Sprint car fans in the East will assemble Saturday night to see the 57th running of the Williams Grove Speedway Champion Racing Oil National Open for sprint cars sanctioned by the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Cars Series, going 40-laps in distance and paying a gigantic $65,000 to the winner.

This year’s event will be quite momentous, as the champion will pocket the biggest cash payday ever in the history of the oval and in the East, at $65,000. . 

The National Open has a grand history that dates back to its inception and first champion in 1963.  It is a history that pre-dates all other season-finale races held anywhere in the East.

Eventual Indianapolis 500 champion Gordon Johncock of Hastings, Mich., won the very first 100-lap affair in a contraption that had what looked like a wing atop its roll cage. 

And this too would soon come to pass, as sprint cars would begin taking over dirt tracks in the east, including Williams Grove Speedway.

Ohio USAC standout Larry Dickson scored Open round two in 1964.  Western Pennsylvania invader Henry Jacoby of Franklin took 1965. 

The name of Blaney graced the National Open winner’s circle in 1966 as family patriarch Lou took Open laurels decades before his sons Dave and Dale would compete on the scene.

Bobbie Adamson, becoming a region name, took back-to-back victories in 1967 and 1968 before a virtual unknown named Gene Varner from Selinsgrove drove a back-up Gary Wasson No. 5 to an upset win in 1969 after a distance of 150 laps.

The decade of the 1970’s dawned with Altoona flyer Johnny Grum picking up the Open win.

The first of three consecutive wins by Midwest transplant Kenny Weld took place in 1971.  All three of Weld’s wins came aboard the Bob Weikert No. 29.

Another transplant, The Bandit, Steve Smith Sr., took wins in 1974 and again in a rain-shortened 122-lap race in 1976 while The Original Outlaw, Bobby Allen drove to a win in 1975.

Texas native racing brother Van May took the 1977 version of the National Open before the Pink Panther struck in 1978 with a Kramer Williamson 100-lap win.

Smokey Snellbaker drove to victory for Charlie Lloyd in 1979 before the grandson of a coal miner named Lucas, Allen Klinger of Hegins kicked off the 1980’s with a 40-lap victory.

Steve Smith Sr. returned for a third Open triumph in 1981.

Lynn Paxton went back-to-back in 1982 and 1983 and stunned the racing world after his second 75-lap win by going into retirement during the off-season.

Three more in a row for owner Bob Weikert came at the hands of South Dakota driver Doug Wolfgang from 1984 – 1986.

Wolfgang got stunned, denied and passed by Bobby Allen’s brother, Joey Allen, for the victory in 1987.

The Mouse, Kenny Jacobs of Holmesville, Ohio, took another win for Weikert in 1988.

The year 1989 found the first true World of Outlaws National Open contested as the yearly sanctioning began with Stevie Smith taking a victory to carry on his father’s tradition.

Technically, the 1978 National Open was considered an outlaws race as well although no outlaws drivers competed in the event.

One of if not the greatest sprint car driver(s) of all time, Hoosier Steve Kinser took his first National Open checkers in 1990.

Stevie Smith returned for another Open win, both for car owner Al Hamilton, in 1991, and now at a distance of 50 laps.

Kinser was again the champion in 1992 before daytime specialist Don Kreitz Jr. drove to victory under the Sunday sun in 1993 after 40 laps of action.

Steve Kinser was again the winner in 1994 before outlaw cousin Mark Kinser took 1995. 

The locals went back in front in 1996 with Lance Dewease and No. 461 car owner Walt Dyer.

Sammy Swindell won his first National Open in 1997 on a night that had fans returning to frozen windshields on their cars by the time the race ended.

Persistent rain forced a non-sanctioned event in 1998, won by modified turned sprint star Billy Pauch in a mount owned by John Zemaitis.

Mark Kinser returned for victory in 1999 before one of today’s outlaws stars and champions, Donny Schatz took his first win in 2000 as part of what would become a historic record in National Open competition in another 13 years. 

Dewease returned the laurels to the PA Posse turf with back-to-back wins in 2001 and 2002, for car owners Joe Harz and Al Hamilton, taking $25,000 and $30,000, respectively on both accounts.

Steve Kinser was again the winner in 2003 before Schatz returned for two in a row in 2004 and 2005.

The first $50,000 to win National Open was scored by Lancaster’s Doug Esh in 2006 and as it turned out it was the richest and shortest Open in history when rains hit on lap 26 of 40. 

Schatz was again the winner in 2007.

Thanks to more persistent rain, another unsanctioned event in 2008 saw future outlaws and All Stars star Cody Darrah drive to victory.

Greg Hodnett took a hugely popular National Open victory for the PA Posse in 2009 driving the Jim and Sandy Kline No. 22.

Sammy Swindell got the second Open win of his career in 2010.

West coast flyer Jason Meyers took the 40-lap, $50,000 laurels in 2011.

The 2012 version saw North Dakota’s Schatz surge for an unprecedented fifth career win in the prestigious classic National Open.

With the $50,000, 40-lap victory, Schatz became the winningest driver in National Open history, breaking a four-win tie with Steve Kinser.

In 2013, the grand career of local driver Fred Rahmer of Salfordville was capped off at Williams Grove with his first and only triumph in the lucrative, prestigious National Open as Rahmer led the final 31 laps of the 40-lap feature before the veteran retired from the sport at the close of the season. 

Connecticut driver David Gravel took the $50,000 win in 2014 but not without controversy.

The outlaws flyer was overtaken by local favorite Stevie Smith during the last half of the race before the slightest of contact from a closely following Gravel found Smith spinning in the first turn with six laps to go while Gravel retook command for the victory.

And then Stevie Smith got redemption in what was to be the first three-day National Open in history in 2015.

After three consecutive days of rain stopped the event dead in its tracks, a break with the weather on Sunday allowed a raindated Open to be completed with Smith taking the lead from Danny Dietrich on the ninth tour to lead the final 31 circuits and beat Schatz to the line for victory.

An uncanny three more days of rain and raw weather wiped out a second attempt at a three-day nationals in 2016.

An outlaws make up two weeks later found Danny Dietrich taking the lead from Joey Saldana with two laps to go in the 40-lap affair to score a wildly popluar win for the Pennsylvania Posse. Brad Sweet also took a turn at leading the main.

Connecticut’s David Gravel struck for his second $50,000 score in the 2017 National Open. Gravel took the lead from Donny Schatz and then took the lead back from James McFadden to win the 55th Annual affair.

An emotional 2018 event held just days after the tragic death of 2009 National Open champion Greg Hodnett saw local driver Lance Dewease win his fourth career nationals for his fourth different car owner.  Driving for Don Kreitz Jr. in the No. 69K, Dewease wrestled the lead away from Brock Zearfoss with a three-wide move in the second turn on lap 24 to seal the 40-lap deal, worth $56,000.  A tearful Dewease dedicated the victory to Hodnett.

Admission prices for Saturday’s National Open are $35 for adults and $20 for youth. 

And please remember, kids ages 12 and under are always admitted free at Williams Grove Speedway.

Williams Grove And Drivers Ready For 57th Annual Champion Racing Oil National Open

October 4 & 5 event ends Grove season with two-day outlaws stand offering big money, big action, big car counts

Josie McIntyre Photo
Mechanicsburg - The 57th annual Williams Grove Speedway Champion Racing Oil National Open for the Pennsylvania Posse sprints and the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Cars Series is coming up in just one week, on October 4 and 5 at 7:30 pm both nights.

The fall classic will take place during a two-day stand by the outlaws sprint cars stars and the winner of this years 57th annual Champion Racing Oil National Open for sprint cars on October 5 will pocket the biggest cash payday ever in the history of the oval and in the East, at $65,000. .

Saturday’s event will be 40laps in distance while Friday’s event will pay $10,000 to win for 25 laps of work.

Admission prices for Saturday’s National Open are $35 for adults and $20 for youth while Friday’s prices are set at $30 and $15, respectively.

Kids ages 12 and under are always admitted for FREE at Williams Grove Speedway.

The two-day Champion Racing Oil Natoinal Open races will find Gettysburg’s Danny Dietrich racing as he trys to cap off his first ever Williams Grove Speedway track title.

But Dietrich will be trying to do more than that in the event as he attempts to win his second career nationals after taking his first in 2016.

And Dietrich may just do it this year as he takes not only the point lead but also five oval wins on the season into the race, more than any other driver this year at the track.

In fact, Dietrich is the winningest driver in the East this season with 13 victories overall, which also ranks him among the top winners in the nation to date this year.

He has beaten the outlaws already this season as well as the All Stars Circuit of Champions on more than one occasion.

Defending Open winner Lance Dewease should be a factor in this year’s event after taking his fourth Open triumph for as many car owners in the 2018 race.

Dewease does have five wins at the track this season including one over the outlaws and last week’s outlaws tune up race but the Fayetteville flyer hasn’t been as consistently in the hunt of late when the biggest races hit the track.

Freddie Rahmer is still looking for a first ever win in the Open and shouldn’t be overlooked nor should Brian Montieth of Phoenixville who has been fast within the last few weeks.

Another potential factor within the local field this week could be Anthony Macri.

Since teaming with mechanic Jim Shuttlesworth in late August, Macri has turned in some stellar performances in other big season-ending races in the area, when the tracks have slicked off.

Californian Giovanni Scelzi won the 2018 Friday night Open Preliminary and is expected to be in the field again this season along with other independents like Brian Brian, Kerry Madsen and Tim Shaffer.

A NIGHT OF FIRSTS; RYAN SMITH & JON STEWART EARN FIRST CAREER LINCOLN WINS

Josie McIntyre Photo
Abbottstown, PA (September 28, 2019) – Ryan Smith had yet to find victory lane in 2019, but that changed when the Kunkletown driver earned his first career win at the Fabulous Lincoln Speedway on Saturday night. Smith held off a charging Danny Dietrich to win the 25-lap main event.

Smith drew the pole position in the redraw and shared the front row with Dietrich. 2019 Track Champion, Brian Montieth lined up third and 410-rookie driver, Tyler Walton, started fourth.

Walton got by Montieth for third at the start of the race as Smith led Dietrich around the 3/8th mile oval.

It didn’t take Montieth long to start challenging Walton for third. Montieth took the spot back on lap 3 after getting under Walton going into the third turn.

The first caution of the race came on lap 4 for Freddie Rahmer who was parked sideways in turn 4.

Smith, Dietrich, Montieth, Walton and Anthony Macri were the top five heading into the restart.

Smith got a great start and went high going into turn 1 with Dietrich opting for the bottom of the track.

Macri used the bottom of the track to challenge Walton for fourth and took the spot-on lap 6.

The yellow flag flew again on lap 7. Anthony Fiore and Brett Michalski got turned around in turn 4. It was a close call for Smith and Dietrich as they nearly get together avoiding the spun-out cars.

Dietrich went low again into turn 1 on the restart and once again Smith held him off.

Dietrich was searching for something on the bottom of turns 1 and 2 as he tried to reel in Smith.

Smith entered lapped traffic on lap 13.

As Dietrich was rim ridding in turns 3 and 4, he hit the wall on lap 16 and lost nearly a second to Smith but was able to keep running.

Another yellow flag came out on lap 18 when Chris Arnold ended up facing the wrong was in turn 4.

On the restart Dietrich once again went low and this time he stayed within striking distance of Smith. Dietrich slid Smith in turns 3 and 4 for the lead, but Smith beat him back to the line.

Dietrich tried another slide job in turns 3 and 4 as the white flag waved for the leaders but once again Smith was able to hold him off.

Smith beat Dietrich to the checkered flag for his first 410 win of the season by .952 seconds. Montieth crossed the line third. Macri was fourth and Chad Trout completed the top five.

Danny Dietrich, Lucas Wolfe and Cory Haas each won a heat race. Chase Dietz won the B-main.

Jon Stewart Wins First Lincoln Speedway Feature

Jon Stewart parked his number 13 machine in victory lane for the first time in his career on Saturday night after making the pass for the lead with seven laps to go.

Stewart lined up fourth for the start of the feature next to Mark VanVorst. Pole-sitter Cody Fletcher paced the field with Michael Hamer on his outside for the start of the 20-lap feature.

Fletcher took the lead going into turn 1 but the yellow came out before the first lap was completed. The caution was for VanVorst who ended up against the wall in turns 1 and 2.

Fletcher took the lead again on the start with Stewart getting around the outside of Hamer for second. A three-way battle for second ensued between Hamer, Jeff Rohrbaugh and Stewart. Both Stewart and Rohrbaugh got by Hamer with Stewart taking second and Rohrbaugh running third.

Rohrbaugh and Stewart raced wheel to wheel for second with Rohrbaugh taking the spot as the caution came out on lap 5 for Dylan Orwig and David Holbrook. Orwig was spun around and Holbrook came to a stop in turn 4.

Fletcher led Rohrbaugh, Stewart, CJ Tracy and Hamer to the cone for the restart.

Hammaker was trying to work his way into the top five as Stewart got back around Rohrbaugh coming out of turn 2 on lap 7 for second.

 An exciting three car race for the lead was brewing between Fletcher Stewart and Rohrbaugh. Fletcher was running the bottom as Stewart rolled through the middle of turns 1 and 2 and was rubbing the wall in turns 3 and 4.

Another yellow flag on lap 10 for Orwig set up the field for another restart.

Fletcher got a good jump at the cone and had a good run coming off turn 2.

The caution flag flew again on lap 12. Nat Tuckey, Brian Allman, Alyson Dietz and VanVorst piled up in turns 1 and 2.

With eight laps to go, Fletcher got out to the lead with another good restart.

Stewart caught Fletcher and the two raced wheel to wheel to the line on lap 14 with Stewart edging out Fletcher for the lead by .008 seconds.

Fletcher had taken the lead back, but the caution came out on lap 14 for Orwig who had spun out in turn 2.

Stewart was pulling away from Fletcher coming out of turn 2 but Fletcher made up ground in turns 3 and 4 running the bottom.

Troy Wagaman had worked his way up through the field to fourth from his ninth starting spot on with three laps to go after getting around Tracy.

Stewart crossed the line for his first career win at Lincoln .825 seconds ahead of Fletcher. Rohrbaugh finished third. Wagaman was fourth and Doug Hammaker completed the top five.

Zach Euculano, Steve Drevicki and CJ Tracy each won a heat with Wyatt Hinkle taking the B-main.

Lincoln Speedway will be back in action on Saturday, February 22, 2020 at 2PM for the Ice Breaker. Pit gates will open at 11:30AM and the grandstand will open at noon.
