TYLER REESER WINS JIM STRAUSBAUGH BALD HILL SHOOTOUT Kobylarz, Updegraff and Sigler Also Take Checkered Flags

Tyler Reeser came away with the big win in Saturday night’s Jim Strausbaugh Memorial Bald Hill Shootout for the Freedmont ® Mortgage Lending PASS IMCA 305 Sprints at Susquehanna Speedway.

The Orwigsburg driver assumed control of the event on lap 12 when leader Cale Reigle slowed on the speedway while leading.

Reigle, who started on the pole took the lead on lap eight from Stephanie Dodson but mechanical woes sidelined him shortly after taking the point.

Reeser, who had lined up sixth on the starting grid would go unchallenged to his first win of the season at Susquehanna aboard his MAS Trucking No. 5T. The win was worth $1,000 to Reeser in a race run in memory of Strausbaugh, a noted mechanic and car owner who passed away last year.
Following the Orwigsburg racer under the checkered flag were Rick Stief, Kyle Ganoe, 12th starting Zach Newlin and Dodson with Dave Brown, Jaremi Hanson, Greg Dobrosky, Mark Watkins and Drew Ritchey completing the top ten.

In victory lane, Reeser chose two random envelopes for $500 bonuses from Wintermyers Auto Salvage. Brown and Dodson  were the recipients.

Brown, Reeser and Dodson were heat race winners for the 26 305 Sprints. Nick Sweigart won the consolation.

Trevor Kobylarz led all 20 laps to pick up the win in the Autobahn Indoor Speedway ARDC Midget feature over Brendon Bright, Ryan Greth, Alex Bright and Adam Pierson.

Both Bright brothers were heat race winners for the 15 car field.

Defending track champion and current point leader, Alex Updegraff came from his 10th starting spot to post his third win in four starts in the 20-lap Superior Homes Extreme Stock feature.

Not even a late race yellow with two laps remaining could slow Updegraff who posted the win over Patrick McClane, Travis Horan, Jeff Gill and Kyle Emig.

McClane won the heat for the 11 Extreme stocks.

Kevin Sigler became the fourth different winner in as many races this season as he came away with the win in the 20-lap Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stock feature.

Sigler started second and led flag to flag but his domination out front was slowed on lap 12 for a red flag that saw Chad Stine flip his car.

Trailing Sigler at the finish were Eric Tripp, Craig Morgan, 10th starting Mike Potts and Scott Thunberg as Jimmy Combs, Bobby Kupp, Matt Adams, Dalton Frye and Joey Hoffer rounded out the top ten.

Hoffer, Sigler and Potts were heat winners for the 22-car field.

The  first weekend of May will see another double-header at the York Haven facility as the Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman return to action on Saturday, May 8 joined by the BRC 358 Late Models, Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stocks and Pennmar Cars. Race time is 7PM.

Then on Sunday, May 9, the BAPS 410 Sprint Series returns for its second of seven events with the Select Collision Kevin Gobrecht Classis presented by Joining the 410 Sprints on this big program will be the 358 Sprints and it will also be ARCH Night. Race Time is 7PM.

Lance Dewease goes wire-to-wire for Keith Kauffman Classic victory at Port Royal Speedway

Lance Dewease goes wire-to-wire for Keith Kauffman Classic victory at Port Royal Speedway

PORT ROYAL, PA (April 29, 2017) - For the second time in as many nights, Fayetteville, Pennsylvania’s Lance Dewease is an Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions main event winner in Central Pennsylvania, this time dominating feature action from the front row to score the second annual Keith Kauffman Classic at Port Royal Speedway. The victory, the 33rd Arctic Cat All Star win of Dewease’s career and his sixth at the Port Royal “Speed Palace,” was conducted in near-record fashion, crossing under the final checkers 6.748 seconds ahead of the field, lapping up to eleventh place during the ten minute, non-stop 30-lapper.

“These guys work so hard,” said Lance Dewease about the Don Kreitz-owned/Schannauer Plumbing & Heating/ 69K operation. “That’s why we run such a limited schedule. That allows my guys enough time to look over everything and make sure we’re ready to go for the next race. The track was great tonight. Hats off to everyone here at Port Royal Speedway. It’s a dream to drive for this team.”

Lance Dewease started from the pole position and wasted no time gaining the early advantage, crossing under the flagstand for the first time by a margin of 2.2 seconds ahead of Ryan Smith and Blane Heimbach. Even with traffic coming into play by lap six, Dewease still managed to keep positive momentum, extending his lead to nearly four seconds at halfway. Meanwhile, Hartford, Ohio’s Dale Blaney charged forward from the outside of row three to third by lap ten, falling in line behind Ryan Smith and Lance Dewease.

Despite two hiccups, making contact with the inside retaining wall, as well as making contact with Doug Esh during an attempt to put “The Hammer” a lap down, Dewease drove on to score the $5,000 payday with no challenges, followed at the finish by Ryan Smith, Dale Blaney, Dylan Cisney, and Blane Heimbach. The victory was number 101 for Lance Dewease at Port Royal Speedway.

“Finishing second to these guys is like a win for us,” Ryan Smith said. “I can’t thank my team enough for what they do for me. Hopefully we can get a win soon and get the monkey off of our back.”

The Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions will conclude their first Central Pennsylvania swing of 2017 with a visit to the Bedford Fairgrounds Speedway in Bedford on Sunday evening, April 30. Honoring the former Bedford Speedway promoter and Central Pennsylvania car owner, the Roy Morral Tribute will headline competition at the Bedford half-mile; the first of two Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions appearances in Bedford, Pennsylvania, in 2017.

Five-time and defending Arctic Cat All Star champion Chad Kemenah is the most recent winner at Bedford Speedway during Series competition, holding back Greg Hodnett and Cap Henry at the final checkers for a $5,000 payday.

Bedford Speedway officials will open pit gates at 4:00pm on Sunday, April 30. A mandatory drivers meeting will be conducted at 5:30pm, followed by hot laps at 6:00pm. Fans who can not attend the Roy Morral Tribute are invited to watch online via Speed Shift TV will be hosting a pay-per-view internet broadcast which is available for purchase starting at $24.95.

Defending champ Leiby scores 5th career win in 358 sprints; Dellinger also gets 5th career win in super sportsman

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 4/29/2017 – “This is a fast race car.”

That understatement was delivered by Danny Dietrich after claiming his third win of the year in the 33-lap, $6,900-to-win 14th Annual Weldon Sterner Memorial for 410 sprint cars at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

Time trials, qualifying, and an inversion at the front of the field placed Dietrich on the outside of the front row for the start. He grabbed the lead from polesitter Jim Siegel at the outset and dominated the rest of the way.

His lead was 1.16 seconds when he hit lapped traffic on lap nine. He increased it to over three seconds as he raced through heavy lapped traffic at the half-way point, and crossed 6.72 seconds ahead of Alan Krimes, setting a new 33-lap record in the process (8 minutes, 53.171 seconds).

Krimes started sixth and came on strong at the end, passing Gerard McIntyre, Jr. for the runner-up spot with seven laps to go. Third through fifth were Lucas Wolfe (who passed McIntyre for third laps to go), 13th starting and hard charger Brian Montieth, and McIntyre.

Sixth through tenth were Siegel, Cory Haas, Chad Trout, Freddie Rahmer, and Billy Dietrich.

410 Sprint heats were won by Krimes, Freddie Rahmer, and Billy Dietrich, with Brandon Rahmer winning the consolation. Fast time in time trials over the 29-car field was set by Lucas Wolfe with a 1-lap time of 13.229-seconds (102.049 MPH).

Chandler Leiby survived a hard double-whammy with the outside wall in turns one and two with five laps to go to score his fifth career win in the 20-lap 358 sprint car feature. Leiby sustained no damage on impact, and although he slowed momentarily to recover, his lead was big enough to stay in front and claim the $1,200 top prize.

His final margin of victory was 1.06 seconds over David Hobrook, with Todd Rittenhouse, Jr., Dalton Dietrich, and Adrian Shaffer completing the top five. Brie Hershey ended a great run by coming from 17th starting spot to finish sixth, with Kyle Denmyer, Chris Arnold, Chris Frank, and Jeff Halligan rounding out the top five.

So far, there have been five different winners in five races in the 358 division at Lincoln this season.

Heats for the 30 358 Sprints were won by Holbrook, Matt Findley, and Shaffer, with Phil Walter winning the consolation.

Like Leiby, Scott Dellinger scored his fifth career win in 25-lap super sportman feature. That event also went non-stop, with Dellinger crossing under the checkered in a time of 7 minutes, 22.30 seconds. His final margin of victory was 1.66 second over Mike Enders, with Chad Criswell, Frankie Herr, and Kenny Edkin finishing third through fifth.

Herr led the first ten laps from the pole, with outside front row starter Dellinger close behind. Dellinger caught Herr on lap 11 and withstood challenges from Enders and Criswell over the second half of the race. A dive through lapped cars in turns three and four with two laps to sealed the $1,200 win.

Heats for the 24 Super Sportsman were won by Criswell, Edkin, and Garrett Williamson.

Next Saturday night, May 6th, it will be York County Racing Club (YCRC) Night with 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints, and Central PA Legends at 7:30 PM. Gates open at 5:30 PM.

Dewease Notches No. 87 At Williams Grove In All Stars Tommy Classic Tyler Reeser claims 305 sprints

Mechanicsburg – It’s win number 87 and counting for Lance Dewease in the sprint car record books at Williams Grove Speedway after his defeat of Freddie Rahmer and the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions Sprints in the annual Tommy Hinnershitz Classic on Friday night.

Now at 87 wins on his career at the oval, Dewease of Fayetteville needs just three more victories to tie Fred Rahmer Sr. on the all-time Williams Grove win list and four more to become the all-time win leader.

Tim Shaffer and Freddie Rahmer comprised the front row for the start of the 30-lap Tommy Classic with Rahmer going for all the marbles in the first and second turns on the green flag lap but Dewease stuck his nose into the mix on the low side and came out with second as the trio raced onto the backchute.

Shaffer held a small lead over Dewease during the opening laps but by lap four Dewease was reeling in the leader and it took just two more laps for him to catch Shaffer and make a low side pass in the third and fourth corner to take command of the field with six away.

Dewease then entered the backmarkers on the ninth tour as Rahmer finally got around Shaffer for second just shy of the halfway point.

The only caution flag of the race unfurled 14 laps to go for a stopped Steve Buckwalter, erasing a .921 second lead that Dewease had over Rahmer.

Rahmer proved a stout challenger on the restart and over the entire ramining distance, consistenly rolling the outside lane in the first and second turns to try and gain valuable ground in an effort to net the top spot.

Dewease again entered traffic with six laps to go and Rahmer was close enough the whole time to keep Dewease honest but he was never as close as he was on the final lap in the second corner.

As it happened, Dewease and Rahmer took the white flag with backmarker of Anthony Macri just in front and when Dewease chose low to enter turn one, so did Macri with Rahmer blasting the outside lane.

Rahmer drove up and around Macri with Dewease seemingly boxed out until at the last possible moment Macri slipped up off of the bottom just enough in the middle of the turn to set up a breath taking three-wide situation as Dewease nudged by both Macri and Rahmer to burst onto the backstretch still the leader.

The surge that Dewease got off of the bottom groove in the second turn allowed him to hold onto the victory, taking his second win of the year at the track by .814 seconds at the finish.

The $5,000 win was the sixth All Stars victory of Dewease’s career at Williams Grove Speedway alone and the 32nd of his career overall on the series circuit.

Shaffer held on for second followed by Aaron Ott and Danny Dietrich.

Sixth through 10th went to Trey Starks, Brian Montieth, Lucas Wolfe, TJ Stutts and Tony Stewart.

Heats went to Rahmer, Montieth, Wolfe and Stewart with twin dashes going to Shaffer and Rahmer.

Steve Buckwalter took the B Main and Rodney Westhafer took the C Main.

Dewease set fast time over the 45-car field with a lap of 16.446 seconds.

Jay Krout led on the first circuit of the 20-lap PASS 305 sprint main before Tyler Reeser took over the lead and headed to victory.

A lengthy red flag period on the third lap took place for a four-car tangle in the fourth turn.

The final 17 laps of the race went nonstop witih Reeser winning over Zach Newlin, Ken Duke Jr., Krout and Rick Stief.

Heats went to Colby Dice, Kyle Ganoe and Cale Reigle.

Jeff Miller becomes first repeat winner of Keystone RaceSaver Challenge for 305s

Renninger gets second xtreme main

Brent Marks at Williams Grove Speedway in 2016

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Brent Marks of Myerstown took advantage of an unexpected break in his World of Outlaws sprint car schedule to invade Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night and ended up pealing some seven seconds off of the 25-lap track record on his way to a $3,200 payday.

In the 25-lap make-up 2016 RaceSaver Challenge for IMCA 305 sprint cars, Jeff Miller of Huntingdon became the first driver to repeat in the history of the event, dating back to its inception in 2012.

And in the xtreme stock main, Herm Renninger made it two wins in a row.

Nicole Bower jumped from the pole to lead the 410 sprint car feature at the start chased by Curt Stroup and TJ Stutts.

Dale Blaney started seventh in the field and blistered into third on the second tour while Bower streaked away from the field, entering the backmarkers on the sixth circuit.

Blaney was on the move early, working the top and bottom of the track, but made his moves to get into control using the bottom groove.

He got by Stroup for second low in the first and second turns of lap nine and then deep in the third corner was where he overtook Bower for the lead as she worked traffic.

However Blaney wasn’t the only man on the move in what turned out to be a dizzying event that went non-stop as eighth starter Marks took the third spot from Bower on lap 12.

Marks was slinging his No. 19M all around the speedway, working traffic and the leaders at will and drove around Stroup for second with 10 laps to go.

He then spent the next five laps running down leader Blaney before blasting by for control and the victory with five laps left.

Marks then pulled away to the eighth win of his career at the track, taking the checkers 1.266 seconds ahead of Blaney to set a new 25-lap track record of 7:32.949, overtaking the old mark held by Lance Dewease since 1992.

Stroup held on for third followed by TJ Stutts and Ryan Taylor.

Sixth through 10th went to Brock Zearfoss, Doug Esh, Danny Dietrich, Dylan Cisney and Lucas Wolfe.

Heats went to Taylor, Stutts and Bower.

Polesitter Ken Duke Jr. would lead the first 11 laps of the 25-lap Keystone RaceSaver Challenge for 305 sprints before surrendering to Jeff Miller.

Miller started sixth in the main and followed Duke, Zach Newlin and Scott Ellerman for the first nine laps before beginning his march through the top three.

Following Miller across the line for second, 4.502 seconds behind, was Duke with Ellerman finishing third followed by Newlin and Kyle Ganoe.

Sixth through 10th went to Mark Watkins, Tim Tanner, Dave Brown Jr., Dave Grube and Dylan Shatzer.

Heats went to Ganoe, Tyler Reeser, Miller and Grube with Cale Reigle taking the consolation race.

Fast time was set by Miller with a lap of 17.840 seconds.

Kassidy Kreitz won the eight lap non-qualifiers Founder’s Cup race for the IMCA 305 sprints, earning a guaranteed starting spot in the upcoming 2017 RaceSaver Challenge in October.

Herm Renninger took his second xtreme stock main of the year, driving by Kevin Imes for the victory on the second tour of the 15-lap feature.

Imes held on for second followed by Mike Goodwin, Pete Leister and Bill Powell.

Davie Franek wins Jack Gun Memorial at Selinsgrove Speedway

Davie “No Panic” Franek used a lap 8 pass of race leader Chris Coyle to put the 28f in the lead position and went on his way to his first Capitol Renegade United Racing Club sprint car win of 2017 at the annual Jack Gunn Memorial race paying $2,500 to win.

A field of 32 360 sprint cars singed into the Selinsgrove Speedway pit area on Saturday night all in search of the coveted Jack Gunn Memorial trophy and the $2,500 to win that goes with it. With 4 heat races on the docket for the night, heat race wins went to Adam Carberry aboard the family owned #47, Delaware native Chris Coyle aboard the Fred Kennedy, Fred’s Trailers #56, Robbie Stillwaggon aboard the Quality Auto Body #89 and the #28f Franek Auto Sales, Escape RV of Davie Franek. The B-Main was won by the #22 B&G Auto of Troy Betts.

Adam Carberry aboard the R&S Concrete, Paving and Site #47 and #56 of Chris Coyle lead the 26-car starting field to the drop green flag. Coyle quickly jumped out to the lead but a caution for a slowing #08 of Jason Clauss, again doubled up the field. On the restart, Coyle again jumped out to the lead in the Fred Kennedy owned #56 sprint car. By lap 7, the 28f of Franek was pressuring Coyle for the lead and just as Franek took the lead from Coyle, the caution came out for a stopped Justin Whittall in turns 3-4. The back bumper of the Pioneer Auto Body #67w of Whittall was missing and some damage to the tail tank of the 67w could be see as he was pushed back pit side.

On the restart, Coyle grabbed the lead heading into turns 1-2 but the lead was short lived as the 28f of Franek coming roaring back down the back stretch and into the lead as the field entered turn 4. Caution was again displayed on lap 13, this time for the 35 of Chad Layton and the M1 of Mark Smith who tangled in turns 1-2 while battling for the 5th position. With a considerable amount of time to clean u the mess in turns 1-2, the field came to a rest of turn 4 as the track was then opened for a fuel stop.

On the lap 13 restart, the Heffner Owned #27 of Greg Hodnett was right on the back bumper of Franek stalking the 28f and looking for the right opportunity to take command of the lead. At the drop of the green, both drivers battled for the lead but eventually the 28f of Franek held onto the lead. Lap #17 saw the #89 of Stillwaggon pass Curt Michael and Adam Carberry and head into the 4th running position.

With 5 laps to go Franek continued to pace the field followed by the #27 of Hodnett, with the 89 of Robbie Stillwaggon, the 56 of Chris Coyle and the #5g of Curt Michael rounding out the top 5. Just two laps later, Curt Michael over took Stillwaggon for 3rd but the leaders of Franek and Hodnett were just over a straight away ahead of Michael leaving him no time to track down the two leaders.
Franek cruised to his 2nd victory of 2017, his 2nd at Selinsgrove in 2017 and his 1st in the Capitol Renegade United Racing Club’s win for the 2017 racing season.

Some tidbits for the night. Newly wed Adam Carberry was back from his two-week honeymoon just in time for the race at Selinsgrove. Carberry was just married the Saturday before the URC opener at Bridgeport Speedway. Justin Whittall’s crew had to scramble to replace a tire prior to the start of the feature event as a tow truck ran over the youngster’s left rear tire. The #33 of Mike Walter, and #73b of Brett Michalski both took Provisionals on the night for Selinsgrove and the United Racing Club respectably. The night saw multiple green flips during the night at URC rookie Kris Lillick went for a ride on the backstretch, the 5c of Cory Thornton flipped in turns 3-4. Thornton was taken to the infield care area and was later released.

The next race for the United Racing Club will be Friday April 28th as the United Racing Club’s wingless addition will be taking on the high banks of Big Diamond Speedway.
Finish: 360 Sprints A - Main:

1) #28F Davie Franek, 2) #27 Greg Hodnett 3) #5G Curt Michael 4) #89 Robbie Stillwaggon 5) #47 Adam Carberry 6) #45 Kevin Nagy 7) #56c Chris Coyle 8) #63 Josh Weller 9) #77 Derek Locke 10) #76 Larry Kelleher 11) #56 Nate Snyder 12) #29 Jason Shultz 13) #99K Cody Keller 14) #3z Colby Womer 15) #66 Ryan Kissinger 16) #22 Troy Betts 17) #49s Mallie Shuster 18) #7a Ed Aikin 19) #73b Brett Michaski 20) #1 Mark Smith 21) #35 Chad Layton 22) #10 Joe Kata 23) #67w Justin Whittall 24) #33 Michael Walter II 25) #08 Jason Clauss 26) #706 Mark Sasso

Freddie Rahmer Impresses With Come-From-Behind Williams Grove Sprints Win Nouse grabs 358 main


Photo courtesy of Tony De Seta

Mechanicsburg – Freddie Rahmer stole the show late on Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway, coming forward from the ninth starting spot to record the 410 sprint car win over Cory Haas, who led all but the final two laps.

And in the 358 sprint car main, Kevin Nouse pulled off the same feat, leading only the last two laps, to pick up the feature event.

Cory Haas and Matt Campbell started on the front row of the 410 sprint car feature and Haas took the lead at the start, chased closely by Campbell.

Only one caution flag on the final lap would slow the hectic pace in the feature and before that, both Campbell and Lucas Wolfe took their shots at the win.

Campbell got around Haas for the lead on the third lap only to see Haas reclaim control on the next circuit.

Wolfe meanwhile had started fifth in the field and raced into third on the fifth lap just as Campbell was again mounting a bid for the lead.

But Haas would be up to the challenge and Wolfe then began working on Campbell for second.

It took several laps for Wolfe to get around Campbell for the spot, which he finally did with 11 laps to go thanks to a run in the fourth turn.

Wolfe then set his sights on leader Haas who had been unable to get away from the pack and on the 19th lap Wolfe briefly surged into the lead in the first and second turns only to watch as Haas reclaimed narrow command on the backchute.

And it was then that Rahmer entered the picture, up to fifth and mowing down the field at will.

He took fourth from Rick Lafferty with four to go and at the same time Campbell overtook Wolfe to again run second.

On the 23rd lap, Rahmer blasted from fourth to second, passing by both Campbell and a faltering Wolfe before darting around Haas for the lead in stunning fashion as the white flag unfurled.

But just then Wolfe blew a right rear tire and spun backwards on the frontstretch, causing the lone caution period of the race.

Any potential bid by Haas to regain control proved fruitless on the restart as Rahmer easily drove to the win on the final lap, taking the checkers by .334 seconds.

Campbell rode home third followed by Lafferty and 11th starter Brian Montieth.

Sixth through 10th went to Danny Dietrich, Brock Zearfoss, Greg Hodnett, Doug Esh and Alan Krimes.

Heats went to Campbell, Dietrich and Hodnett with Eric Riggins Jr. taking the consolation.

The win was the seocond of young Rahmer’s career at the oval and it was worth $4,100 including a $500 bonus for winning from the fifth row.

The 358 sprint main saw polesitter Phil Walter take the lead when the green flag came out chased by second starter Eric Parker.

Parker tried his best to get around Walter but Walter was able to thwart his advances and keep a narrow lead even as the race hit the halfway point and worked through traffic.

However third starter Kevin Nouse was racing third and began finding speed in his machine with eight laps to go, racing to the inside of Parker for second with four laps left.

As leader Walter worked traffic, Nouse drew even with him for the lead as the pair crossed the line with two laps to go and together they boldly raced side by side into the first corner, displaying great skill in not colliding.

Walter tried to use the inside lane to seize slight control as the pair raced out of the second turn and again the pair shot into a corner, this time the third turn, side by side but this time Nouse got the upper hand and took the lead with one to go.

Shortly after taking the white flag, the races only caution unfurled, clearing the track for Nouse who was able to pull away on the final lap for his first win of the year at the track.

Parker got by Walter for second on the final lap.

Jared Esh and Doug Hammaker completed the top five

Sixth through 10th went to Brie Hershey, Adrian Shaffer, Scott Fisher, Jordan Givler and Dave Thrush rounded out the top 10.

Heats went to Parker and Shaffer.

LEPPO CLAIMS THIRD CAREER TRAIL-WAY WIN IN 358 SPRINTS; Kameron Morral, Eric Johnson, Jason Chronister other Friday night winners

HANOVER, PA (4/21/2017) – Dwight Leppo was in the right place at the right time to win the 358 sprint car feature at Trail-Way Speedway Friday night.

Leppo, who finished second to Steve Owings on opening night, started fourth and was running second when third-starting J.B. Cunningham pulled up lame while leading in turn four of lap 16.  He assumed the lead for the restart and led the rest of the way, crossing 1.25 seconds ahead of fifth-starting and defending track champ David Holbrook at the finish.

“It felt pretty good tonight,” said Leppo upon exiting his family-owned Belmit Engineering Development/Joe Mssinger Home Improvements/Auchey Body Shop #4 in victory lane, “It felt good last week, too, but this week worked out better.  I like lapped traffic, but it was nice to run where you want to for once.”

Owings, who lost a rear end in his qualifying event and lost several spots when he got out of shape and ran through the infield in the feature, came back to finish third and was named the event’s hard charger after starting ninth.  Isaac Sneeringer and Wyatt Hinkle completed the top five.

Sixth through eighth were Joe Trone, Jr., Colt White, and Landon Myers.  They were the only cars that finished the race.

Heats for the 16 sprint cars were won by Sneeringer and Holbrook.

Kameron Morral started on the pole and led every lap of the 20-lap 600cc micro-sprint feature for his second career Trail-Way win.  Jesse Snyder, Tyler Walton, Nash Ely, and Hannah Riser completed the top five.

Qualifiers for the 17 micros were won by Walton and Snyder.

Eric Johnson started on the outside of the front row and led whole way in the 20-lap season opener for the street stocks.  It was Johnson’s fourth career TW win.  Michael Goodwin, Brian Walls, Zach Myers, and G.S.B. Asphalt hard charger Travis Leh (who started ninth) rounded out the top five.

Heats for the 12 street stocks were won by Brian Walls and Jeremy Stremmel.

Jason Chronister held off the late race challenges of Justin Wagaman to claim his 15th career Trail-Way win in the 15-lap limited stock feature.  Chronister’s final margin of victory was a scant .25 seconds.  Terry Hartlaub, Travis Brown, and Justin Oberlin finished third through fifth.

Heats for the 20 limited stocks were won by Wagaman and Chronister.

Next Friday, April 21, 2017, Trail-Way Speedway hosts the Precise Racing Products 358 Late Model Series, along with Mason-Dixon 270 Micro Sprints, Limited Stocks, Vintage Cars and Classic Cars. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. with heats beginning at 7:45 p.m.

KENNY EDKIN SCORES FIRST CAREER SPORTSMAN WIN Charles Potts, Alex Updegraff and Mike Potts Visit Victory Lane

By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA…4/15/17
Kenny Edkin turned a late race pass into his first career Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman feature win Saturday night at Susquehanna Speedway.

Edkin threw everything he had at leader Doug Dodson during the 25-lap Super Sportsman feature but a late race caution put the field in a double file restart and Edkin was able to make the race winning pass on the 24th lap for that first career win.

Veteran Rich Eichelberger led the first three laps before giving way to Dodson, who started alongside Eichelberger on the front row.

Dodson maintained the top spot during several yellows as Edkin, who started 11th had worked his way into contention and was running second with defending champion Russ Mitten brought out a yellow flag on lap 22 when his car suffered a blown motor.

This set up the thrilling finish that saw Edkin drive his Edkin’s Towing, Marysville MotorCars, Carlisle Auto Salvage, King Spin Pizza and Subs, Rich Valley Black Walnuts No. 75 to victory lane for the first time ever.

Dodson settled for the runner-up finish ahead of 19th starting Scott Dellinger (Artwerks, Thompson Lawn Car, Brown & Miller Racing Solutions HardCharger), 15th starting Mike Enders and Davey Walsh as Garrett Williamson came from 22nd to sixth ahead of Eichelberger, Jay Fannasy, Timmie Barrick and Chad Smith.

Gregg Foster, Mitten, Edkin and Tony Jackson won heats for the 33 Super Sportsman. Nate Young won the consolation. Jackson’s heat race win was a New Track Record.

Charles Potts passed Steve Billet on the 10th lap and drove away from the field to post the win in the 25-lap Bernheisel Race Cars 358 Late Model feature.

Potts, who became the fourth different winner in four events, dedicated his win to his sister Victoria, who passed away two weeks ago.

Billet rode home second trailed by point leader Brad Shank, Justin Ehrhart and Ben Whitaker with Cameron Benyou, Steve Billet, Sean Merkel, Eric Hohol and Cory Merkel completing the top ten.

Steve Billet and Whitaker won heats for the 14-car field.

Not to be outdone by his nephew, Mike Potts raced home with the win in the 20-lap Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stock feature.

Starting eighth, the defending street stock champ ran second until using a final lap pass on leader Scott Thunberg. Potts became the third different winner in three races this season.

Thunberg, Jim Palm, Matt Adams and 10th starting Dalton Frye completed the top five finishers followed by Kevin Sigler, Joey Hoffer, Chris Derr, Craig Morgan and Sam Leonard, Jr.

Chris Derr and Eddie Richards won heats for the 20 street stocks.

Alex Updegraff became the first repeat winner in Susquehanna action this season as the defending champion took the checkered flag in the 20-lap Superior Homes Extreme Stock feature.

Updegraff led the final seven laps to pick up his second win of the season over Patrick McClane, early leader Kyle Emig, Brandon Staccone and Ronnie Buck.

Updegraff and Emig were heat winners for the 12-car field.

Susquehanna Speedway returns to action Saturday night, April 22 on R.E. Fink & Son Night as the Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman, Bernheisel Race Cars 358 Late Models and Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stocks will see action. The EMMR cars will also on hand. Race time is 7PM.

Davie Franek of Wantage, N.J.; Donnie Schick of Middleburg; and Brad Mitch of McClure gave the fans their money's worth in feature racing Saturday at Selinsgrove Speedway. The night’s racing provided stiff battles for the top spots and valued trips to victory lane for each of the winners.

A collective groan went through the Selinsgrove crowd when Mark Smith's name was announced as the polesitter for the 25 lap 360 Sprint Car feature event. It's not that Smith isn't popular among fans, it’s merely the fact that when the fast guy starts up front there is usually little to no chance there will be a pass for the win. That wasn’t the case Saturday night.

Smith bolted to the race lead while second-place starter Davie Franek gave chase. A mid-race yellow proved valuable for Franek as he pulled to the rear bumper of Smith's m1 machine for the restart. Franek rolled around the outside on the restart and challenged Smith before the yellow flag flew when Chad Layton crashed in turn four.

Franek again used the outside on the restart. This time it would pay off with a successful slide job in turn three. Franek was now the race leader with Smith in chase. As Franek closed in on lap traffic in the final stages on the race, Smith would close slightly but not enough as Franek picked up his first win of the season.

“It's rare you pass Mark Smith for a win,” Franek said in victory lane afterward, thanking his crew for their many hours in the shop to help them get the win. Smith crossed the line second ahead of opening night winner Jason Shultz. Mallie Shuster and Michael Walter completed the top five finishers. Layton and Shultz took heat races.

Donnie Schick has not been to victory lane at Selinsgrove since 2011 in the Jeff's Auto Body Super Late Models. In the opening night feature event Schick looked like he might end that streak before a misjudged lap car took him out of the race lead. Schick came back this weekend and was out for redemption for himself, his race team, and his legion of fans.

Schick had challenges from Tony Adams and Danny Snyder, but neither ever posed a real threat to Schick. Schick crossed the line for the win in what he called an unbelievable moment. Adams and Snyder closed out the podium finishers. Jim Bernheisel made a rare Late Model start and drove to fourth with Dave Zona closing out the top five. Danny Snyder was the heat race winner.

The A&A Auto Stores Pro Stocks usually roll off as the first feature of the night. On this night, they made for a hard act to follow. Tommy Slanker was carrying all the momentum in the class after winning the season opener and jumping to the early race lead Saturday. On a lap four restart defending champion Brad Mitch, making his season debut, made a big move to slide into the race lead. Slanker crossed Mitch over and took the top spot back as the two continued the exchange.

Mitch would come away with the top spot after the two leaders "traded some paint" in the battle. Slanker lost some ground on lap 12 after slipping above the racing groove. Slanker quickly recovered and closed the gap with one lap to go. Even with Slanker's advances Mitch held on for his first win of the season. Slanker was second ahead of John Fowler, Brandon Moser, and Kyle Bachman. Fowler and Mitch came across the line first in heat races.

Selinsgrove Speedway will sanction the first race of the season with the United Racing Club next Saturday, April 22. The 360 Sprint Cars will compete in the 37th annual Jack Gunn Memorial race. The Super Late Models and Pro Stocks will also be on the racing card. There has been a start time change with the racing rolling off at 7pm rather than the original 6pm scheduled time. Track gates will open at 5pm.

LUCAS WOLFE CLAIMS $5,000 TOP PRIZE IN LEFFLER ENERGY 410 SPRINT CAR SPRING CHAMPIONSHIP, Halligan holds off Shearer for 358 sprint car win

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 4/15/2017 –Lucas Wolfe grabbed the lead at the outset from polesitter Greg Hodnett and led every lap to claim the $5,000 top prize in Saturday’s Leffler Energy Spring Championship for 410 sprint cars at Lincoln Speedway.

Despite torrid racing in behind, none of the heavy hitters were able to catch the Michael Barshinger-owned Embee & Son #24 as Wolfe claimed his fourth career Lincoln win.

Time trials, qualifying, and an inversion draw put Hodnett and Wolfe on the front row, with last week’s winner Gerard McIntyre, Jr. and Billy Dietrich on row two, and Danny Dietrich and five-time champ Brian Montieth on row three. Row four was just as impressive, with defending champ Alan Krimes and Chad Trout.

Montieth was the hard charger through the mid stages of the race, getting around Danny Dietrich with six laps to go and closing on the winner in lapped traffic at the end.

“It’s certainly important we have a good opportunity to start way up,” said Wolfe in victory lane, “These time trial races normally play into my hands and give me a good opportunity. I’ve been able to capitalize on them the last couple of years. It’s fortunate to start the season here this way.”

“We’ve been pretty competitive I thought, but things just haven’t gone right,” said Wolfe, “It was good to put a whole night together. Obviously, there’s tremendous competition there at the front on these types of races, so the start was certainly critical. Both Brian and Danny have been good here all year, and have a lot of laps and wins here, so I’m enjoying the opportunity to run here a little more and hopefully, be able to keep this amount of competitiveness going and move forward and be strong all year.”

Third through fifth behind Wolfe and Montieth were Danny Dietrich, Hodnett, and Krimes. Sixth through tenth were McIntyre, 13th-starting Tyler Ross, Trout, Robbie Kendall, and 18th-starting Kyle Moody.

Heats for the 410 Sprints were won by Montieth, Krimes, and Trout, with Freddie Rahmer winning the consolation after failing to qualify in his heat and missed the inversion. Fast time in time trials over the 28-car field was set by Freddie Rahmer with a one-lap time of 13.391-seconds (100.814 MPH).

Like Wolfe, Jeff Halligan drove to his fourth career Lincoln win in the 20-lap “358” sprint car feature.

The event included an 11-car melee in turn two of lap seven when Wyatt Hinkle and Adrian Shaffer made contact, sending Hinkle into a spin and collecting ten other cars. Shaffer was able to keep moving and was placed third for the restart. While he had his hands full over the remainder of the event with tenth-starting and defending champ Chandler Leiby, Halligan was busy trying to hold off the race-long challenges of early race leader Brent Shearer.

Shearer started fourth and led the first two laps before Halligan claimed the lead on a lap three restart. Though Halligan led the rest of the way, Shearer wouldn’t go away, and crossed a close second.

Third through fifth were Shaffer, Leiby, and Cody Fletcher. Sixth through tenth were 14th-starting Kyle Denmyer, Matt Findley, Ashley Cappetta, Todd Rittenhouse, Jr., and Steve Wilbur.

Heats for the 26 358 Sprints were won by Shaffer, Phil Walter, and Halligan, with Trey Hivner winning the consolation.

Next Saturday, April 22nd, Lincoln Speedway will hold a 3-division show featuring the 410 Sprints, 358 sprints, and Central PA Legends at 7 PM. Gates open at 5 PM.

Brock Zearfoss wires for win in 410 sprints,Brenneman out duels Rine for impressive Late Model win, Shaun Miller takes econo late models

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Upstart driver Trent Brenneman of Port Royal turned in an impressive performance resembling that of a seasoned veteran in the 22-lap super late model main at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night, out-dueling late model star Jeff Rine for the first victory of his career at the historic oval where his grandfather Butch Renninger drove to numerous wins and track titles.

In the 25-lap 410 sprint car main, Brock Zearfoss of Jonestown held off TJ Stutts to record his first win of the year at the track while Tower City’s Shaun Miller won the econo late model main to close the night.

Both Brenneman and Rine started on the front row of the super late model main and the pair spent the first five laps exchanging the lead at will with each set of turns.

Rine would repeatedly overtake Brenneman for control in the second corner while Brenneman would use the bottom to perfection in the fourth turn to lead the majority of the laps at the line with the exception of the third circuit when Rine’s nose was ahead at the stripe.

Only a caution flag broke up the neck and neck action just before lap six could be scored but the battle continued when action resumed.

Brenneman was holding a .367 advantage over Rine on the ninth tour when another caution bunched the field.

And again a war on wheels was waged when action resumed with Brenneman holding his low line to keep control despite constant powering blasts on the top side by Rine and then finally on the 11th tour Rine was able to take the lead by a scant .014 seconds at the stripe.

After that Brenneman kept trying to work his bottom groove but with time he strayed to the topside trying to find more speed and that he did as lap after lap he pulled closer to pacesetter Rine’s rear deck lid.

Brenneman was clearly gaining significant ground as he blasted off of the cushion in the fourth turn and when the pair shot onto the frontstretch on the 19th lap Brenneman crossed over in the middle of the straightaway, pulling off of Rine’s bumper to use a lapped car as a pick as he entered the first corner.

When Brenneman went low on the backmarker, he pushed that car up the track in front of Rine and that allowed him to secure control once more, this time again scored the leader with just two laps to go.

Brenneman was then able to put enough daylight between himself and Rine to focus on two smooth laps and while that was happening, Coleby Frye came blasting under Rine for second with a lap to go while also closing on Brenneman.

But the win went to Brenneman by .813 seconds and a joyous victory lane erupted for the ever-improving local driver with deep ties to the oval.

Rine and Frye were the first people into victory lane to congratulate Brenneman on his victory.

Dan Stone rode home fourth followed by Nick Dickson, Andy Haus, 20th starter Mason Zeigler, Devin Friese, Mike Lupfer and Dave Brouse Jr.

Heats for the 23 late models went to Dickson, Frye and Friese with Chris Casner setting fast time in time trials with a lap of 18.804 seconds.

Zearfoss saw two red flags and two yellows slow his race winning pace in the 410 sprint car main.

The first caution flag unfurled with three laps recorded when Doug Esh looped his car in the fourth corner while trying to avoid a collision with Mike Wagner as the pair raced for fifth.

Esh rejoined at the rear and eventually came back to finish eighth.

The ensuing restart saw Aaron Ott get sideways in the second turn, collecting Jimmy Seger who turned over as Ott righted his car and drove away.

TJ Stutts took second from Tyler Bear on the restart and would follow Zearfoss the rest of the distance.

At the halfway point Zearfoss held a 4.858 second lead over Stutts however a red with three laps to go stopped the pace again, this time for Curt Stroup who turned over after slamming into the inside first turn barrier.

The restart gave Stutts a chance at a flyer but Zearfoss was just too far around to complete the slider, instead forcing Stutts to ride home second by .449 seconds.

Rick Lafferty took third from Mike Wagner on that final restart with Wagner ending up fourth and Aaron Ott fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Tyler Bear, Blane Heimbach, Doug Esh, Logan Wagner and Kevin Nouse.

Heats went to Steve Buckwalter, Esh and Zearfoss.

Shaun Miller started second in the 18-lap econo late model main and held off Eric Irvin for the win after Irvin chased him for the entire distance.

Todd Snook took third at the finish after moving into the spot with three laps to go.

Tim Fedder and JR Toner completed the top five while sixth through 10th went to Derrick Garman, Tim Krape, Andrew Shoop, Garrett Gray and Jason Davis.

Twin heats went to Miller and Krape.

Dewease Scores 86th Win In Williams Grove Sprints, Shaffer gets fourth 358 opener in a row


Mechanicsburg – Lance Dewease scored big on Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway, taking the 25-lap 410 sprint car main in his first appearance of the year at the track to boost his career win total there to 86 which is just four wins shy of the all time win mark at the historic oval.

In the 358 sprint main it was Adrian Shaffer taking the season opener for the division at the track which turned out to be his fourth victory in a row in the Williams Grove lidlifter for the 358s.

Danny Dietrich drew the pole to start the 410 sprint car main and after a strong showing in his heat, Dietrich may have been poised to run off with the victory but Dewease had other thoughts.

After starting fourth in the field, Dewease streaked around the cars of Steve Buckwalter and Alan Krimes in the first corner of the opening lap to be along side Dietrich for control in the second corner.

Dietrich tried to hold Dewease back and pulled ahead for a lap or so but to no avail as the Fayetteville flyer drove through the middle of the turns to net control on the third circuit.

After getting control, Dewease pulled away from Dietrich and was just entering the backmarkers on the ninth tour when the races first caution flag unfurled.

Dewease got away again on the restart and was again poised to enter traffic with eight laps to go when TJ Stutts brought out the red flag after a tumble on the backstretch.

Dietrich could do nothing with Dewease at the new green as he again jetted away, this time to the victory that he took by 2.457 seconds at the finish.

With his eyes set on the top prize of becoming the all time Williams Grove Speedway winner, Dewease said in victory lane that his next try at a Williams Grove win will be in two weeks when the All Stars invade for the running of the Tommy Hinnershitz Classic.

Following Dietrich across the line at the finish was a very competitive Freddie Rahmer, Alan Krimes and Steve Buckwalter.

Sixth through 10th went to Mark Smith, Doug Esh, Chad Trout, Lucas Wolfe and Greg Hodnett

Heats for the 36 cars in action went to Krimes, Rahmer, Dietrich and Esh with the consolation going to Matt Campbell.

Shaffer wired the field for the win in the 358 sprint car main to open the class’ season at the track.

Matt Findley trailed Shaffer for the entire distance but was never able to challenge.

Eric Parker moved from 10th starting spot to finish third followed by Brie Hershey and Doug Hammaker.

Sixth through 10th went to Jared Esh, Kevin Nouse, Jordan Givler, Chris Frank and Nyle Berkes.

Heats went to Troy Wagaman Jr. and Doug Hammaker.
