FLETCHER SCORES FIRST CAREER WIN IN TRAIL-WAY 358 SPRINT FEATURE;
Stough comes from 12th to claim Central PA Legends national qualifier;  Stremmel leads flag-to-flag in Street Stocks; Nicklow wins first of the year in limited stocks

HANOVER, PA (6/19/2015) – It’s been two decades since the Fletcher #66A has graced victory lane. 
And what a way for Cody Fletcher to score his first career 358 sprint car feature win, holding off the all-time winner and current points leader to claim the 25-lap feature at Trail-Way Speedway Friday night.

Grandfather Harry Fletcher was there to see it and join Cody in victory lane, but father Bob, the last driver to win in a Fletcher sprinter, is vacationing in Italy and will see the victory lane photos via social media.

“I couldn’t do this without my parents and grandparents,” said the jubilant Fletcher in victory lane, “When you start up front you can only hurt yourself…and I’ve done that enough.”
“It’s been coming,” continued Fletcher reflecting on his first win, “We’ve been running good, and it feels good to finally be standing here.”

The Fletcher Farms/Rocco’s Pizza & Subs sprinter started on the pole and led every lap despite early-race pressure from fourth-starting Isaac Sneeringer (laps 1-12) and then third-starting and third-starting Brad McClelland (laps 13-20). 

J.B. Cunningham was uninjured in a spectacular flip on the backstretch while racing Zach Euculano for fourth on lap 10. 
Euculano was able to restart fourth and finished there, with hard-charger Tyler Reinhardt coming from ninth to cross fifth.

Qualifiers for the 12 “358” sprint cars were won by Dwight Leppo and Cunningham.

Bob Stough won heat one, drew a “12” pill for the inversion, and came through a competitive field to score his second win of the year and seventh career Trail-Way win in the 20-lap national qualifier for the Central PA Legends. 

Stough didn’t enter the top five until lap 13, then caught Bill Diehl for fourth on lap 14, passed both Chris Transeau and Mason Chaney to move into the runner-up spot on lap 17, and took the lead from Scott Houdeshell in turn two of lap 18.
Transeau crossed second, with Diehl, Houdeshell, and Justin Mitchell finishing third through fifth.

Heats for the 21 Legends were won by Stough, Transeau, and Diehl.

Jeremy Stremmel drove to his second win of the year and sixth career TW win in the 20-lap street stock feature.  Though he started sixth, he was scored the leader of every lap, with 11th-starting Dan Furman, Aaron Beard, and Travis Leh rounding out the top five.

Heats for the 11 street stocks were won by Beard and Michael Goodwin.

Robert Nicklow won his first of the year and second of his career in the 15-lap limited stock feature.  Finishing second through fifth were Shane Miller, 21st-starting Ricky Weaver, Jr., 18th-starting Jeff Foster, and Pat Meadowcroft (running his first ever race at Trail-Way).

Heats for the 23 limited stocks were won by Kenny Startzman, Miller, and Kyle Rohrbaugh, who suffered a flat right front tire while racing with Nicklow for the lead in the feature event.

Next Friday, June 26th, Trail-Way hosts the 358 Sprints, Limited Stocks, Street Stocks and Mason- Dixon 270cc Micro Sprints. Gates open at 5:30 p.m., with heats beginning at 7:45 p.m.

The following Friday (7/3), Trail-Way swings back into action with the 358 Sprints, Limited Stocks, Street Stocks, Mason-Dixon 270cc Micro Sprints and the Vintage Cars. Gates open at 5:30 p.m., with heats beginnings at 7:45 p.m.
