ECKERT MAKES LATE-RACE PASS FOR $11,000 RON KEISTER MEMORIAL VICTORY; WALTER SCORES FIRST CAREER SPRINT CAR WIN; BACHMAN CAPS NIGHT WITH PRO STOCK CHECKERS

SELINSGROVE, Pa. Mason Ziegler of Chalk Hill looked like he was going to make his four hour tow payoff in a big way Saturday night at Selinsgrove Speedway but it was Rick Eckert of York who made a late-race pass on the 49th of 52 laps to take the win and $11,000 that was posted for the Ron Keister Memorial for super late models.

Keister, a rookie driver who was killed in April of 1976, was honored by the speedway and his family.

The victory was Eckert’s seventh career at the famed Snyder County half-mile oval.

Michael Walter of Selinsgrove scored his first career 360 sprint car win in the 25-lap feature that was worth $2,000.

Kyle Bachman of Selinsgrove capped off the night with his second win of the season in the 15-lap pro stock feature.

Selinsgrove Speedway returns to action at 7 p.m. next Saturday, May 25th, with the United Racing Club Jack Gunn Memorial for 360 sprint cars along with limited late models, pro stocks and roadrunners. Track gates will open at 5 p.m.

Starting on the pole in what was his first ever race at Selinsgrove Speedway, Mason Ziegler slid underneath Coleby Frye for the early lead in the late model race. The pair were followed by Rick Eckert, Randy Christine Jr. and Kyle Hardy.

In the early laps, Eckert got by Frye as Hardy followed. By lap 10 Ziegler had run into traffic and Eckert drew to his rear bumper.  Hardy and Greg Satterlee soon joined the front runners.

Ziegler continued to slice through traffic while Eckert, a former World of Outlaw Champion stayed in contact but did not pressure him. Satterlee got by Hardy for third and was soon tracking down Eckert.

With the first 41 laps run without a caution, a planned competition yellow was thrown to allow for an 11 lap shootout in honor of Keister’s former car number.

The cars restarted using the Delaware restart with Ziegler choosing the bottom lane.  As Ziegler took off, Dylan Yoder used the restart to drive into third.  Eckert stayed glued to Ziegler’s bumper and tried to test him high but on the 49th lap Ziegler came off the fourth turn high.  Eckert drove low and into the lead. 

Almost immediately the caution came out as Jeff Rine, Ken Moreland, Jim Yoder and Shaun Jones got together in the third turn.

After a lengthy caution because a bumper got caught in the guardrail the race resumed for a green-white-checkered showdown.

Eckert checked out winning by .448 seconds over Ziegler, Yoder, Satterlee and Jared Miley.


Late model heats went to Ziegler, Alex Feree, Eckert and Frye.  The B-Mains were won by Kenny Trevitz and Gene Knaub.  Satterlee set fast time of 19.355 seconds over the 36-car field.

Mallie Schuster rocketed into the sprint car lead from the pole position. He was followed by Derek Locke, Michael Walter, Jason Shultz and Kyle Reinhardt.

Locke took the lead on the next go around and the race was cautioned on lap three for a spin by Dave McGough and Jim Schuster.

Walter, Schuster, and Shultz raced the next lap three wide before Walter grabbed second and Schultz settled into third.

Shultz running low and Walter racing high in a side by side race allowed Locke to open a lead by over four seconds when he slowed and pulled off the track on lap 19.


“I saw him go low and pull in.” Walter said.  “My engine was getting hot and I was hoping it would hold up just a few more laps. We’ve tried and failed so many times it feels great to win this one.”

Walter was followed by Shultz, Layton, Reinhardt and Mallie Schuster.

The win was Walter’s first at the speedway after starting his career on the 1/5th mile inner oval and the third generation of his family to race at the speedway.

Sprint car heats were won by Locke and Layton

Shaun Lawton blasted to the front of the pro stock feature followed by Kyle Bachman, Brandon Moser, AJ Hoffman and Tommy Dawson.

Bachman pulled even with Lawton and the pair ran side by side until lap eight when Bachman inched into the lead.

A last lap caution for Dawson and Wayne Shaffer bunched the field on Bachman’s rear but the defending track champion won his second race of the season over Moser, Lawton, Hoffman and AJ Stroup.

Kyle Bachman and Brandon Moser won the pro stock heats.

Mike Enders picks up 1st of the Season in Sportsman feature , John Walp scores the PASS 305 Feature at BAPS Motor Speedway



YORK HAVEN, Pa.: Mike Enders has always shown speed at the old Susquehanna Speedway, regardless of the division he was running.

         

When Enders was in a 358 Sprint Car, he won in 1997. Throughout the years, he was also good in the Super Sportsman class, ripping off numerous second-place finishes.

         

But wins have  eluded Enders in the competitive division. That is until Saturday night at Susquehanna, which is now BAPS Motor Speedway.

         

Enders surged past a pair of fellow competitors early in the 25-lap affair. From there, he held off a late challenge and scored the victory in the BAPS Paint Super Sportsman division.

         

“I’ve always been pretty decent here, even in the 358,” Enders said after his first career BAPS Motor Speedway win in the Super Sportsman division. “When the Sportsman were at Williams Grove, we would do the tour, and every time we went to Susquehanna, I was always fast but couldn’t get that win.

         

“Ever since they took over, the track configuration changed a little bit, and since they put the new clay down, man, I’ve been struggling. It’s been frustrating, so it’s a nice relief to get a win.”

         

Enders started third on the grid and followed Tyler Wolford and leader Tom Wyckoff for the first two circuits before the caution was displayed.

         

Two more cautions occurred on the restart, which slowed Enders pace. The trio ran under a blanket for three more laps before Enders surged past Wolford and Wyckoff on the fifth circuit.

         

“The track was tackier than I thought it was going to be,” Enders said. “All season long, we’ve been struggling with the slick track and trying to get the car tight. Last night, it had a lot of grip.

         

“I was trying to finesse the car, and the track had more grip, and I kept screwing up. I barreled into Turn 1 and got by Wolford, and then on the backstretch, got beside Wyckoff. In three and four, I passed him and led the rest of the way.”

         

Wyckoff’s night came to an end when he flipped hard on Lap 5. he was OK. Scott Dellinger, who was also running in the top five, was also involved and went to the pit area. He fixed his car during the red flag and rejoined the field.

         

Enders paced the field when the race went back to green. He was on cruise control until the final caution was displayed on Lap 15 for Bruce Buckwalter Jr., who spun.

         

Justin Foster was beside the leader on the restart and challenged as they drag raced down the frontstretch. But, Enders was too much through the first and second corner and led the final 10 circuits for the win.

         

“It always feels good to get back to Victory Lane,” Enders said. “The last win I had in anything was three years ago, and that was at Lincoln Speedway. I think we had six seconds since then, so it’s definitely a relief.”

         

Chase Gutshall and Foster battled for second late in the event and got together. Gutshall took the position and maintained it for the rest of the race. Foster slipped to 15th in the final feature rundown.

         

Frankie Herr came from 12th to third, with Kenny Edkin finishing fourth. Russ Mitten was involved in an early incident and came back through the field to finish fifth and earn the ArtWerks Cool Move Award. Mitten, Edkin, and Gutshall were heat winners for the 25-car field.

         

John Walp started on the pole and wired the field to capture the 20-lap PASS/IMCA main event.

         

There were two cautions over the race distance, but that didn’t slow Walp’s pace. He took the win over Jaremi Hanson, Larry McVay, sixth-place starter Doug Dodson, and Zach Newlin.

         

Nick Sweigart was the ArtWerks Hard Charger, as he charged to 14th from his 23rd-place starting spot. Dodson, Johnny Scarborough, Ken Duke Jr., and McVay were heat winners for the 32-car field. Kirsten Hess won the consolation.

         

Jason Townsend took the lead on the second circuit and led the rest of the way to earn the win in the Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools, MJR Equipment.com Street Stock 30.

         

Kyle Saylor jumped out front on the start and held the lead until Townsend charged into the top spot on Lap 2. From there, he paced the field until the checker for the prestigious victory.

         

Jasen Geesaman finished second. He was followed by Saylor, Kory Sites, and Greg Diehl. Brian Walls finished sixth and was ArtWerks Hard Charger. Geesaman was quick time with a lap of 20.31. Townsend, Saylor, and Russ Shoop were heat winners for the 28-car field. Eddie Richards won the consolation.

         

Alex Upegraff  topped the field in the Superior Homes Extreme Stock main event. He took the lead fromMatt Adams on Lap 13 and never looked back.

         

The 20-lap main event had five leaders and featured six caution flags. Adams led twice before being passed by Updegraff, who was also the hard charger.

MIKE BITTINGER HOLDS OFF STEVE OWINGS FOR INSINGER SPRING CHAMPIONSHIP WIN

Hanover, Pa. (5/17/19): Mike Bittinger’s commitment to the high side paid off as he held off Steve Owings by .105 seconds to claim the Insinger Performance 358 Sprint Car Spring championship and his 18th career Trail-Way Speedway 358 victory.

“I’ll tell you what,” Bittinger began in victory lane, “if you guys get this track like this every week it’s going to be nuts around here. I love it! This is great!”

Bittinger continued, “I was beginning to wonder…am I getting too old or am I losing it? We started up front… but I’m going to take this one for sure.”

The Abbottstown driver started on the pole with New Oxford’s Kenny Kuhn starting on the outside of the front row. Kuhn was able to maintain second for the first five laps until Cody Fletcher took advantage of him on a lap five restart, taking over the runner up spot, with Owings following Fletcher past Kuhn a lap later.

Four laps later, the leaders entered lapped traffic, giving Bittinger his first obstacle of the night.

“The unique part was that those lapped guys were running on the top side,” Bittinger said. “The way we had the car set up, I really couldn’t do much more than rip around the top and I tried to go under them but I was losing ground. So I just had to hit them at the right spots, and thank God experience helps there.“

As Bittinger lapped Andrew Hake, the caution flag flew for Tim McClelland and John Sharpe, who were running just ahead of the leaders. Both cars were able to rejoin the field.

On the next restart, Fletcher continued to hold off Owings for second, but only until lapped traffic once again became a factor, allowing Owings to complete the pass for the runner up spot, thus setting his sights on the racelong leader.

Bittinger and Owings continued to maneuver around lapped cars for the next few laps but had the final five laps to battle it out with little to no interruptions. 

“With five to go I started to run out of fuel,” Bittinger said. “In the middle of the corner, it’d stumble and shut off. Normally when that happens, you’d slow down and go to the bottom to try to keep your fuel flat in the tail tank. But I thought, you can slide job me, you’re going to have to get me on the bottom because I’m not moving off this top!”

Bittinger’s commitment to the top side proved beneficial for the #93 sprinter as he crossed the line to win his first 358 Sprint Car feature of 2019.

Bittinger admitted the track being widened over the off season was a great improvement for the speedway.

“I’ll be honest, the track’s wider and you can feel it as a driver,” Bittinger said. “It kind of spreads everybody out. The guy that likes to run the bottom, he’s running it a little bit lower, gives you more room outside of him. So it’s a little bit less hairy when you’re trying to drive off of someone’s right rear tire on entry.”

Owings crossed the line second followed by David Holbrook, Fletcher and Troy Wagaman Jr.

16th starting, Joe Trone Jr., finished 10th, taking him the Big Mike’s Crabhouse Hard Charger award.

Heat winners were Holbrook, Wagaman and Bittinger.

New Oxford’s Zane Rudisill raced to his second career Trail-Way Speedway 600 Micro Sprint win, dominating the field in the process.

The race’s lone caution, brought out by Mechanicsburg’s Mike Sherman on the fourth lap, gave Travis Keiser and Jim Young an opportunity to turn up the heat on Rudisill, but he never gave them the chance.

The field stayed green over the remaining 16 laps with Rudisill taking the checkered flag 1.561 seconds ahead of Keiser in second and Young in third.

Jesse Snyder and Trent Yoder completed the top five.

600 Micro Sprint heat winners were Rudisill and Bradley Weber.

Enola’s Scott Houdeshell made an early race pass and drove on to claim the 20-lap Pizza Shop of Etters Central PA Legends sponsored by Harvest Chapel feature at Trail-Way Speedway.

Houdeshell, who started third on the grid, passed leader Mason Chaney on the frontstretch and never looked back, scoring his 7th career Trail-Way Legends win. The win places him in a tie with Bob Stough for fourth overall on Trail-Way’s all-time win list. Houdeshell also established a 20-lap track record with a non-stop time of 6 minutes, 37.783 seconds.

Houdeshell crossed the line 2.794 second ahead of Chaney with Travis McClelland, Travis Perry and Bill Diehl completing the top five.

Legend heat winners were Jorjie Sweger, Houdeshell, Chaney and Jeremy Ott. Alex Robinson was the consolation race winner.

Limited Stock driver, Robbie Carroll, made the winning pass on racelong leader, Matt Worley, on the 10th lap, driving on to his second victory in as many races at Trail-Way Speedway.

Worley, Jeff Foster, Nick McDaniel and Justin Oberlin completed the top five.

Heat winners for the Limited Stocks were Carroll, Matt Chronister and Cody Klinedinst.

Lance Dewease out duels Donny Schatz for the Morgan Cup at Williams Grove Speedway

The battle for the Morgan Cup at Williams Grove Speedway Saturday night turned into the title match of the century between the World of Outlaws and PA Posse.

One the front row of the 30-lap World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series Feature, representing the World of Outlaws was 10-time Series champion Donny Schatz and next to him, on the pole, representing the PA Posse was Lance Dewease – whose won more races than anyone at Williams Grove.

Dewease added another win to that list Saturday night, defeating Schatz to claim the Morgan Cup and his 17th career World of Outlaws victory. The Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing driver didn’t make it an easy fight, though.

Schatz got the first punch, jumping to the lead at the start of the race. From there, Schatz set a pace the No. 69K couldn’t match.

Dewease contributed that to his setup, stating it takes five or six laps for his car to get going. Because of that, he said he anticipated Schatz would get the jump on him. He knew the race he needed to run.

“The pace we were trying to run, we were going to be hard on tires at that whole 30 laps,” Dewease said about Schatz’s early run. “But hell, I wasn’t too easy with them.”

Schatz’s early lead didn’t last long, though. On Lap two, Logan Schuchart stopped on the front stretch due to an ignition box issue. The caution allowed the two front runners a quick rest to gauge their early run.

When the green flag flew again, Schatz landed another jab, jumping back to the lead. Dewease kept pace with him, though.

“I was shocked how good I hung with him there on the bottom,” Dewease said. “I thought we’d be alright if I could get by him (Schatz). He knows how to get around here when it’s slick.”

Like Dewease predicted, once he got in six consecutive laps, his car took off. While Schatz rode the high side, Dewease found enough grip on the bottom to wear out Schatz’s lead. By that time the two leaders entered lap traffic, which proved to be an advantage for Dewease.

Schatz struggled to navigate around lap traffic, allowing Dewease to plant the attack he needed on Lap 17 to charge by the No. 15 car and take the lead.

“It just came down to getting through lap traffic,” Schatz said. “I got to the 70 car and I didn’t push the issue, to go across the race car and go in front of him and I didn’t do it. It got me in a funk for a few laps and Lance got by. I got myself back going, but it was too late.”

Dewease then cruised to his second win in four days, after winning Wednesday’s night race at Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, Pa. That night he heard the chant, “Posse! Posse! Posse!” in Victory Lane. Then heard it again Saturday night as the PA Posse fans were jubilant to retain the iconic Morgan Cup.

“This rivalry is pretty intense,” Dewease said. “It goes back a long way. We’re some of the few areas that can consistently win against these (Outlaws) guys. We were very fortunate to get it done tonight and keep the cup for another year. Beating Donny is always special because he gets around this place so good.”

While Schatz accepted his defeat, having to settle for second, he laid down a further challenge for the PA Posse fans.

“I hear all of that Posse chant, and I love that,” Schatz said. “Come August, I’m pretty sure he’s (Dewease) going to win the money to go to the Knoxville Nationals, so there’s going to be no damn reason every person in this place isn’t at the Knoxville Nationals watching it.”

While Schatz and Dewease put on a show at the front of the field, California-native Giovanni Scelzi was the show of the race behind them.

Scelzi won the C-Main, transferring to the rear of the 12-car Last Chance Showdown. He then made his way to fourth in the Showdown, transferring to the rear of the Feature. After starting 24th, he charged his way to a seventh-place finish in the Feature, earning the KSE Hard Charger award.

“Just qualified bad, and when you do that it puts you behind the eight-ball,” Scelzi said. “We just kept trucking in the Feature and kept going and going and going. I wish we had a yellow. I think we had something to get back in the top-five.”

Scelzi won his first Series victory at Williams Grove last year, becoming the youngest ever World of Outlaws winner at 16 years old. However, he’s not sure why he meshes with the Pennsylvania track so well.

“I just seem to have some natural speed,” Scelzi said, “I don’t know where it comes from. Seems to be a place I’m comfortable at.”

Both Schatz and Dewease – who credited each other as being exceptional drivers – said they’ve found the set up their comfortable with, leading to another potential title match when the Series returns to Williams Grove Speedway in July.

Norris Tops Lates; King Jr. Strikes in Thriller; Lynch Cruises; Zambotti Climbs Fence In Victory


Sarver, PA (May 18, 2019) Fans were treated to racy surface and night of racing beneath dry skies for the second week in a row on Friday night. They were also treated to some great performances in main event action that saw some familiar faces wind up in victory lane.

Michael Norris was tested by a hard charging Colton Flinner and pressed at times by a strong performance from Tommy Beck who led early on, en route to his first appearance in victory lane at The Action Track. The defending champion took the lead on a lap three pass in turn four and gave it up to Flinner with 11 laps left, but made his way back around and cruised to the win in the Precise Racing Products DIRTcar Late Model main event.

Meanwhile, Rex King Jr. put the field behind him with authority from the pole in Diehl Automotive DIRTcar Big Block Modified action but would be challenged by an oncoming Dave Murdick in the second half of the race. Murdick looked to be on the verge of making a pass for the lead on several occasions and had good looks on the bottom of the speedway. However, King Jr. was too strong on the top side to be overtaken and pegged a lap 23 restart that saw Brian Swartzlander overtake Murdick for the runner up spot.

In Peoples Gas DIRTcar Sprint action, Sye Lynch took early command from the pole and fought off challenges from AJ Flick and Jack Sodeman Jr to earn his second career victory at The Action Track. Flick and Brandon Spithaler tangled in turn four early on, eliminating both from contention with six laps in the books, leaving Sodeman with a clear opportunity to hunt the leader in clean air.  However, he came up short in his pursuit as Lynch was extremely fast on the top side and never looked back once firmly in the lead.

Joey Zambotti’s week one performance in Millerstown Pic-A-Part DIRTcar/RUSH Pro Stock action was impressive indeed as he came from the tail of the field to the second spot and nearly challenging for the win. His performance on Friday night was just as if not more so impressive. Zambotti made his way through the field and ran down a strong running Tyler Dietz out front while Ryan Moyer and Corey McPherson joined the front of the pack. Dietz was able to inch closer after Zambotti made the pass for the win but ran out of laps as he took his first Lernerville feature victory of the season, prompting a familiar fence climbing celebration before victory lane.

David Gravel rides low line to Morgan Cup first round win

MECHANICSBURG, PA – May 17, 2019 – A simple point of the finger by Jason Sides gave David Gravel the assistance he needed to go on and win his third World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series race this season.

Gravel lost the lead to Daryn Pittman at the start of the 25-lap Williams Grove Speedway Feature and 10 laps later lost second to Pennsylvanian Danny Dietrich. It looked like Gravel may have to settle for his second third-place finish in-a-row, but everything changed with 13 laps to go.

Dietrich and Gravel were nose to tail heading down the front stretch with the lap car of Sides in front of them.

“Going into (turn) one, Sides pointed low and I think Dietrich thought he pointed low like he was going to go low and Dietrich was going to go high, but he actually pointed low to pass him down low,” Gravel said. “Dietrich followed him in the corner, and I went low. So, I’m glad it worked out for me and not for him.”

That move allowed Gravel to slide back into second-place, while Dietrich fell several car lengths behind him after having to lift out of the throttle due to Sides blocking his line. Dietrich cited getting caught behind Sides was the one mistake that kept him from a potential win Friday night.

“That was the race I think for me,” Dietrich said.

With Dietrich far behind, Gravel had breathing room to try and run Pittman back down. And he didn’t waste any time. Two laps after passing Dietrich, he was on Pittman’s bumper. Gravel stuck to the low line most of the race, while Pittman stayed high. But with 12 laps to go, the two swapped lanes in turns three and four. The advantage went to Gravel.

On Pittman’s tail, he dove underneath the No. 83 Roth Motorsports car in turn one and charged his way back to the lead.

After the disappointment of losing a potential win at Lincoln Speedway Wednesday night, Gravel was not going to let another win slip through his fingers.

He prepared himself for the Feature throughout the night, studying how his car worked in different lanes. While he won his Drydene Heat race and the DIRTVision Fast Pass Dash by riding the high line, he tested the bottom during the Dash.

“I was just trying it (different lines) out all night,” Gravel said. “Luckily things worked out the way they did, and I found something better than they did.”

Once he cleared Pittman and began to pull away with the lead, Dietrich wasn’t letting him out of his sight. The blue No. 48 also got by Pittman and made his own charge for the lead. At times a blanket could be thrown over the top three.

Dietrich continued to run the high side, while Gravel stayed low. At times he would close on the No. 41 Jason Johnson Racing car, but Gravel could always out power him out of the turn, leading to his 42nd career World of Outlaws victory – and fifth Series win at Williams Grove Speedway.

The ability of the No. 41 car to drive hard through the turn without any issues has Pittman scratching his head on how he can get his car to do the same.

“We didn’t get from the center off very good,” Pittman said. “My car would drop too far and not drive down the straightaway. I think the 41 drivers really hard, a lot harder than mine and we’ve got to figure out why that is. I just start spinning way too easy.”

Gravel and his new Jason Johnson Racing team have found the level of consistency they were hoping to find at the start of the year. He’s finished in the top-five in the last four races – three of those finishes being on the podium. And with three wins now, Gravel is the winningest driver, so far, this season.

“Man, we’re trying all sorts of stuff,” Gravel said. “Every night I don’t think we run the same bar combination. Philip (Dietz, JJR crew chief) is always working, trying to make the car better. It works nine times out of 10. Hopefully we jot down the things that work really well and continue to grow as a team and keep winning races.”

His Williams Grove win has propelled the Watertown, Conn.-native to be tied for third in the Series’ points standings with Pittman – 64 points behind leader Donny Schatz, who only has a two-point lead over Brad Sweet.

With three wins in the early stage of the season, the championship isn’t on Gravel’s mind, yet. He’s focused on staying consistent and winning races.

“The past couple of races have been really good,” Gravel said. “We’re qualifying well consistently now, which is a huge part of this. If we keep that up good things will happen. Where we end up in the points is where we end up. I just want to keep winning races and try to be as consistent as we can.”

A simple point of the finger to the sky in Victory Lane Friday night made that clear.

UP NEXT:

Gravel will get the chance to sweep the weekend when the World of Outlaws return for the final round of the Morgan Cup Saturday, May 18, at Williams Grove Speedway.

Lance Dewease Wins One for Team Posse with Gettysburg Clash Win

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

Saturday, May 25, 2018 (7:30PM) 410 Sprints + 358 Sprints + Central PA Legends (ARCH Night)

Saturday, June 1, 2019 (7:30PM) 410 Sprints + 358 Sprints [Regular Show + Make-up Feature from May 4] + Wingless Super Sportsman

Abbottstown, PA (May 15, 2019) – With the sun shining on a Wednesday evening, 43 cars signed into the pits for the $10,000 to win Gettysburg Clash. Wednesday marked the World of Outlaws’ first visit to Central PA in 2019 and leading up to the race the Posse vs. the Outlaws narrative was alive and well.

As Lance Dewease climbed out of his car in victory lane after the 35-lap feature, chants of “Posse” could be heard loud and clear. Despite starting on the pole of the dash, Lance finished second to David Gravel. The two shared the front row of the main event with Gravel getting the lead when the green flag dropped.

Daryn Pittman nearly got by Dewease for second but Dewease held the spot. Brad Sweet went to work Tim Shaffer for the fourth spot and tried the low side in 3 and 4 but couldn’t take the position.

Dewease started to reel Gravel in with some good runs coming off of turn 2, but every time Dewease would get close, Gravel managed create more distance between the two.

Gravel and Dewease hit lapped traffic on lap 7. As the leaders worked their way around lapped cars, Gravel was able to keep Dewease at bay. On lap 12 it looked like Dewease was closing in on Gravel, but again Gravel pulled away.

Dewease had Gravel’s lead down to under a second on lap 16. Both Dewease and Gravel went to the bottom in turns 1 and 2 on lap 18 with Dewease coming out with the lead. Dewease created distance between Gravel right away, but Gravel caught up to him in lapped traffic.

Just like when Gravel would pull away when Dewease got close, Dewease did the same to Gravel after he caught him battling lapped cars. Dewease had his lead up to over a second with 10 laps to go.

The first caution came out on lap 28 for Pittman when he got turned around in turn 3. Pittman was running third when he brought out the caution and was able to rejoin the field.

With under 10 laps remaining, Dewease led the field to the cone for a single file restart. Gravel was right on Dewease’s bumper on the restart but Dewease held him off. Ryan Smith got around Lucas Wolfe for fourth.

Lap 29 saw the second caution of the race as Brian Montieth, Shaffer and Brandon Rahmer got caught up in turns 3 and 4. Montieth rejoined the field.

This time Dewease got a good jump on the restart. Smith also had a solid restart and got around Gravel for second riding the top of turns 3 and 4.

With clean air Dewease was glued to the bottom of the track in the turns and was separating himself from the rest of the field as Smith was rim ridding the corners to try and catch him.

Dewease had over a second lead with two laps to go and beat Smith to the checkered flag by 1.677 seconds. Gravel held onto third. Brad Sweet crossed the line fourth and Shane Stewart completed the top five.

Donny Schatz was the hard charger. After using a provisional to start 25th, Schatz finished the night 11th.

Schatz, the current point leader of the World of Outlaws and Alan Krimes, the current point leader at Lincoln, each had to use a provisional to compete in the A-main. It is also worth noting that last year’s Gettysburg Clash winner, Freddie Rahmer, failed to qualify for the main event. Rahmer won the C-main and finished 11th in the B-main.

Heat winners were Brad Sweet, Lance Dewease, David Gravel and Tim Shaffer.

This Saturday, May 18, Lincoln Speedway will be dark. The following Saturday, May 25, Lincoln Speedway is back in action with the 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints and Central PA Legends. Racing starts at 7:30PM with pit gates opening at 5:00PM and grandstand gates opening at 5:30PM.

KEISTER FAMILY TO HONOR MEMORY OF RON KEISTER WITH HUGE LATE MODEL EVENT THIS SATURDAY AT SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Selinsgrove Speedway and the family of the late racer Ron Keister of New Berlin will honor his memory with one of the biggest super late model races in the history of the track at 7 p.m. this Saturday, May 18. Keister was a 28-year-old rookie in late model competition in 1976 when he lost his life in a racing accident at the Snyder County oval.

The Big Wrangler Ranch Ron Keister Memorial will pay a track record late model winner’s share of $11,000 to win the 52-lap A-Main out of more than $40,000 in prize money and contingencies. Time trials, heats, and B-Mains will be the qualifying format. The fast qualifier will receive a $520 bonus with heat and B-Main winners picking up $110 bonuses. The hard charger in the A-main will earn $520.

Keister was a crew member on former champion Paul Long’s late model team before his father Eugene Keister fielded the No. 11 for his rookie season. A standout kart and snowmobile racer, Keister showed early promise as a dirt track racer until tragedy struck on April 10, 1976. In the first late model heat race that night his car made contact with the outside guardrail on the backstretch and was then struck broadside by another car, according to published reports.

Keister was a 1966 graduate of Mifflinburg Area High School where he was a star football player who campaigned the No. 52 on his jersey. He later enrolled and graduated from Penn State University in 1974 with a degree in architectural engineering. At the time of his accident he was married and the father of two children.

Keister’s former numbers 11 and 52 will serve as tributes—$11,000 to win and 52 laps—on May 18 at Selinsgrove Speedway.  The 360 sprint cars will also compete in a 25-lap main event.

Keister’s brother Randy along with Randy’s wife Jody and son Michael continue the family’s racing tradition as the owners of the super late model No. 22 driven by Herndon’s Brett Schadel. 

In late model racing this season at the speedway four races have produced four different winners. Coleby Frye of Dover, Jeff Rine of Danville, Hayes Mattern of Beavertown, and Bret Schadel of Herndon have already taken victories entering this weekend’s historic race at the track. Frye leads the Jeff’s Auto Body & Recycling Center standings by just 20 points over Schadel.

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY BATTLES ANOTHER RAINY WEEKEND: SHULTZ, SCHADEL, MOSER & JONES TAKE CHECKERED FLAGS

SELINSGROVE, Pa. - Jason Shultz of Carlisle won the 25-lap 360 sprint car feature from the 16th starting spot at Selinsgrove Speedway Saturday night. The victory was Shultz’s second of the season and 20th career at the Snyder County half-mile oval.


Brett Schadel of Herndon was victorious in the 25-lap late model race.  It was Schadel’s third career win in a super late model at the speedway. Both Shultz and Schadel received the top prize of $2000 for their victories.

Brandon Moser of Middleburg won the 15-lap pro stock race, while Jake Jones of Hunlock Creek took the 12-lap roadrunner nightcap.

The Selinsgrove Speedway will be back in action at 7 p.m. next Saturday May 18, when the super late models will race 52 laps in the Ron Keister Memorial paying $11,000 to win out of the huge $40,000 purse. The 360 sprint cars and pro stocks will also be in action. All track gates will open at 4 p.m.

For the second week in a row a shower started as the sprint cars were pushed to the speedway. The cars returned to the pits as it showered harder.  Like they did last week the track crew went right to work and saved the track.

Mark Smith split the front row starters to rocket to the front of the sprint car feature followed by Cody Keller, Kyle Reinhardt, Derek Locke and Michael Walter.  Curt Stoup brought out the caution on lap eight when he slowed on the speedway.

Reinhardt got a great restart and took second from Keller but the field was again slowed on lap 11 when Ryan Kissinger and Locke stopped on the track.

The restart saw Jason Shultz get by Keller and immediately pressure Reinhardt.  Shultz moved into second one lap later and started to track down Smith.  “We really got a good start on the second one.”  Shultz stated.   “We could go high or low.”

Smith looked unbeatable but in the final laps a puff of smoke ended Smith’s evening as he stopped on the back stretch handing the lead to Shultz.  Shultz led the final circuit winning by .495 seconds over Reinhardt, Keller Chad Layton and Walter.

“When I saw the smoke coming out of Mark’s car I knew it was not good.  I just wanted to be in a different lane in case something happened.”  Shultz said.  “It’s too bad for Mark but we’ll take it.”

Sprint car heats were won by Chad Layton and Cody Keller.

Donnie Schick led Brett Schadel into the first turn at the start of the late model feature.  The pair were followed by Jim Yoder, Bryan Bernheisel, Jeff Rine and Colby Frye. 

Schadel passed Schick on lap four for the lead and Bernheisel followed into the runner up spot.

“Randy (Keister) guessed right and put on a soft tire.” Schadel said.  “We knew Colby (Frye) and (Jeff) Rine would go a little harder.  We wanted to get the lead early and try to hold them off.”

A lap nine restart gave Rine a shot at Bernheisel which he used to grab second.  Frye soon followed into third.   Frye and Rine entertained the fans with some high speed cat and mouse as Schadel continued to lead. 

Frye and Rine raced lap 20 side by side before Frye grabbed second.  A lap later Rine was back underneath but Frye used a lapped car as a pick to maintain second.

The battle for second played into Schadel’s hands as he rolled to .84 second win.

“By lap nine our right rear tire was shot.” Schadel continued. “I used the cushion to turn the car.  The track was great tonight.”

Following Schadel and Rine were Ross Robinson, Bernheisel and Randy Christine.

Late model heats went to Hayes Mattern, Yoder and Bernheisel.

Lori Croop took the pro stock feature lead from the pole position and was followed by Shaun Lawton, John Troxell, Tommy Dawson and Brandon Moser.  By the third lap, Lawton had taken the lead with Moser on his tail.

Making his first start of the season AJ Hoffman was soon in third and joined the battle for the lead.  As Hoffman and Moser traded slide jobs, Lawton opened the lead.  Once Hoffman was clear of Moser he quickly tracked down Lawton when the yellow came out on lap 10.

Hoffman used the restart and the high side of the speedway to take the lead.  One lap later, Moser followed into the runner up spot. Moser tested Hoffman and found some grip coming off the second turn.  He shot around Hoffman going into the third turn and came off the fourth turn with the lead and the win.  Hoffman, Lawton, Kyle Bachman and Cory Long rounded out the top five.

Dawson and Moser won the pro stock heats.

Jake Jones took the lead on the final lap over Will Brunson to win the roadrunner feature.  Curtis Lawton, Jason Zook and Bob Bussey rounded out the top five.  Jones had also won last night in a kart on the inner Selinsgrove Raceway Park oval.

Curtis Lawton and Jason Zook won the roadrunner heats.

Jeff Miller Picks Up First Ever Weikerts Livestock 410 Feature on Rainy Night

By Justin Snyder



PORT ROYAL, Pa- They say the first one is the sweetest! Jeff Miller held off a hard charging Lucas Wolfe and Mother Nature to pick up his first career Weikert's Livestock 410 Sprint Car victory in his rookie season Saturday night at 'The Speed Palace'.



"I started racing go-carts when I was five and this is what I always wanted to do. I can’t believe it happened this early," said an excited Miller in victory lane.



With rains in the forecast, Speedway officials moved up the start time an hour early for Bobby Rahal Toyota of Lewistown Ladies Night. And throughout the night rain would spit from the sky, threatening to cancel the final track time for the cars prior to the Weikert Memorial in two-weeks.



However after persistent effort and the track and teams moving the program along, Justin Whittal and Miller would lead the 410's to the green for an all Rookie front row. Whittal jumped out to the early lead over Jared Esh, but racing action was halted when Dustin Baney got upside down in turns 1 and 2 before ever completing a lap.



When racing activity returned, Whittal once again jumped out to the lead, this time with Miller in tow and Esh in third.



As Whittal was stretching his lead, Dylan Cisney was an early mover, sliding into 4th on lap 5. One lap later, Miller would take the lead, powering under Whittal down the front stretch and taking the point at the flagstand.



"After warmups, I really didn’t have a clue what to do with the car," said Miller. "I started adjusting the wing and I think it really helped me out there."



Miller started to check out. Meanwhile on lap 9, Esh moved alongside of Whittal going down the backstretch and took the second position.



Wolfe, who started seventh in the feature, began to make his move towards the front on lap 10, cracking the top 5 and moving past Cisney for 4th a lap later.



Meanwhile, Miller hit lap traffic on lap 12. As he rode the top of the speedway, Mother Nature also began to show her muscle, as persistent drops fell from the sky.



Wolfe slid Whittal in turns 1 and 2 on lap 14 and 4 laps later used the top of the speedway coming out of turn 2 to power under Esh entering turn 3 to move into the second position.



On lap 21, Miller would struggle with passing the lap cars of Trenton Sheaffer and Adrian Shaffer, allowing Wolfe to close within a car length of him.



Both leaders cleared the lap cars and over the final 3 laps, Miller would stick to the top of the speedway while Wolfe ran a line lower in turns 1 and 2 and attempted multiple runs through the center of speedway in turns 3 and 4.



However, with a slick racing surface due to rains, Wolfe couldn't make it stick. He'd try one final time in turns 3 and 4 of the final circuit, pulling alongside Miller, however Miller powered off the top of the speedway to win his first career 410 Sprint Car victory by a margin of .292 seconds.



"We decided to do this deal this season and this is really a family thing, but we are learning every week," said Miller, who previously ran in the 305 Sprint Car ranks. "This is really a dream come true and I'm really just speechless."



Blane Heimbach finished third followed by Esh and Cisney in the top 5. Tj Stutts, track point leader Logan Wagner, Mike Wagner, Whittal and Ryan Taylor closed out the top 10.



410 Sprint Car Feature Finish, 25 Laps: 1. Jeff Miller; 2. Lucas Wolfe; 3. Blane Heimbach; 4. Jared Esh; 5. Dylan Cisney; 6. T.J. Stutts; 7. Logan Wagner; 8. Mike Wagner; 9. Justin Whittall; 10.

Super Late Models

Gene Knaub, of Dover, Pa, picked up his second career Super Late Model victory at Port Royal Speedway over Dylan Yoder in the River Valley Builders Super Late Model feature.

Tim  Wilson and Dillan Stake started on the front row for the feature, with Wilson jumping out to the early lead over fourth starting Mike Lupfer and Stake.

On lap 2, Knaub would begin his march to the front, passing Stake in turns 3 and 4 for the 3rd position.

Over the next several laps, Wilson looked to be in command as he stretched his lead over Lupfer and Knaub. On lap 11, Knaub used some momemtum coming out of turn 2 to power under Lupfer for the second position on the backstretch.

However, Colton Flinner was turning heads using the extreme high-line of the speedway to move forward from his tenth starting position, cracking the top 5 on lap 11.

As Wilson attempted the pass the lap car of Scott Flickinger on lap 12, both Knaub and Lupfer were on the tail of the leader. After clearing the lap car, Knaub used the middle of turns 3 and 4 to pull alongside of Wilson and take the lead at the flagstand.

There would be no looking back for Knaub. Yoder would move into the second place on lap 20, however Knaub would take the $2000 winners share and the 25-lap checkered flag by 2.108 seconds over Yoder, Wilson, Gary Stuhler and Lupfer.

"We really struggled there in the beginning, however I'm really blessed to drive a great racecar," said Knaub of his victory. "We always look great early in the night and by feature time we just don’t have it. Just thankful to be in victory lane tonight and to beat the rain."

Flinner, Nick Dickson, Stake, Dave Zona and Austin Berry completed the top 10.

PASS 305 Sprint Cars.

Ken Duke picked up his second Penns Valley Meat Market PASS IMCA 305 Sprint Car victory of the season over Jonathon Jones in the 20 lap feature  event.

Jones and Duke started on the front row, with Duke getting the lead on the start. Racing action would be slowed when Dave Grube slowed to a stop on the speedway on lap 3.

Once again, Duke took the lead at the green flag with Jones in tow. The front 2 cars jumped out to a huge lead before Nick Sweigart got into the wall in turn 3 to bring out the caution on lap 5.

Duke would again jump out the lead at the restart and him and Jones would set a blistering pace. Clearly the class of the field the two got out to a nearly 5 second advantage to the third place car. Jones would attempt to make it interesting over the final laps of the race, however he wouldn’t have enough to best Duke as he claimed the checkered flag by an advantage of .551 seconds.

Jones, Roger Irvine, Doug Dodsen and Devin Adams filled out the top 5 with John Scarborough, Jeremi Hanson, John Fiore, Jake Frye and Zach Newlin completing the top 10.

STEVE OWINGS TAKES 358 SPRINT CAR FRIDAY NIGHT OPENER AT TRAIL-WAY SPEEDWAY

Hanover, Pa.: Westminster, Maryland driver, Steve Owings started on the outside of the fourth row, and wheeled his #35 Valentine Motorsports/Baughers Orchard 358 Sprint Car to the lead by the midway point of the 25-lap Hoosier Tire Mid-Atlantic 358 Sprint Car feature.

“It never gets old running here,” Owings explained in victory lane, “They make fun of me at the car wash and say I ought to be a Trail-Way spokesman.”

Owing started 8th on the grid and immediately applied pressure to the 2018 Trail-Way Speedway 358 Sprint Car track champion, David Holbrook, and 4th starting, Shane Hoff. Holbrook and Hoff battled for third with Holbrook peaking to the inside of Hoff coming out of turn two and down the backstretch, until rookie 358 Sprint Car driver, Kyle Rohrbaugh, brought out the race’s first caution.

On the restart, Owings raced around Holbrook for 4th and two laps later, took 3rd away from Hoff. Moments later, Owings crowded Austen Treuchet for the runner-up spot, with Hoff and Holbrook not backing down. Treuchet could only hold off Owings for so long as Owings completed the pass for 2nd on lap 10.

As Owings took 2nd, racelong leader, Dylan Norris, approached lap traffic. Owings followed Norris around Rohrbaugh and then darted to the bottom of the track in turn one, completing the slide job and taking the lead on the 14th lap.

“He left a little hole, so we had to put her down in there. It’s more fun than slinging it around the top,” Owings admitted.

Owings put some added distance between himself and Norris as he lapped Tim McClelland on lap 17.

On lap 18, Norris and Hoff were battling for 3rd, splitting McClelland’s lapped car, with Norris going low and Hoff taking the high side. Hoff jumped a right rear and flipped his #69 sprint car through turns 3 and 4, stopping the cars for the lone red flag of the feature.

The next start saw Owings pull away from Norris to an immediate 1.55 second lead, but one lap later, Norris was forced to pull to the infield with a flat tire.

From there, Owings was untouchable, taking the checkers for his 21st career Trail-Way 358 Sprint Car victory.

Cody Fletcher crossed the line second followed by Treuchet, Holbrook and Joe Trone, Jr., completing the top five.

Heat wins went to Owings and Fletcher.

Brian Marriott picked up where he left off, claiming his first 270 Micro Sprint win of 2019 at Trail-Way Speedway.

The 2018 Trail-Way Speedway 270 Micro Sprint track champion started on the outside pole, but a caution on the initial lap claimed polesitter, Mike Boer, and six additional cars, forcing the complete restart, this time with Marriott on the pole.

From there, Marriott led the entire 20-lap feature, winning his 11th career 270 Micro Sprint feature at Trail-Way Speedway.

Joe Long Jr., Zachary Glass, Mike Boer and Keera Dupler completed the to five.

Brock Whisler started at the rear and finished 7th, taking home the Donahue Motorsports Hard Charger award.

Brent Bull, Long Jr., and Steven Cox won heats for the 21 270 Micro Sprints and took home a $25 cash bonus from Shue Designs. 

Will Walls dominated the 20-lap Precise Racing Products Street Stock feature, Friday night at Trail-Way Speedway.

Walls started on the pole and was able to hold off Sam Gallagher and Danny Beard, taking his 3rd career Street Stock victory at Trail-Way.

Gallagher finished second followed by Danny Beard in third, Aaron Beard in fourth and Dalton Myers crossing the line in fifth.

Heat wins went to Aaron Beard and Gallagher.

2018 Trail-Way Speedway Limited Stock track champion, Robbie Carroll, completed the race winning pass on Matt Chronister in the opening laps of the 15-lap feature to claim his 19th career victory at the Hanover 1/3 mile oval.

Carroll crossed the line 3.897 seconds ahead of Nick McDaniel, who finished second, followed by Terry Hartlaub and Cody Klinedinst.

Heat winners for the 22 Limited Stocks were McDaniel, Chronister and Carroll.

Roland Brown led the entire 20-lap Classic Car feature, Friday night at Trail-Way Speedway.

Following Brown across the line was Wes Brown, Jim Rost, Joe Brown and Chad Stine, completing the top five.

Joe and Roland Brown were the Classic Car heat winners.
