Central PA Racing Scene 410 Power Rankings 6/26/17

1. Lucas Wolfe -  Leads the division with 7 wins so far in 2017. 6 of those wins have come in the past month. Is by far the hottest driver in Central PA heading into Speedweek. Has wins at Port Royal, Lincoln, and Williams Grove Speedway.

2. Danny Dietrich -
6 wins 5 of them at Lincoln Speedway including this past weekends race at Lincoln Speedway.

3. Lance Dewease - 5 wins for the "Dream Team" so far but has slowed down a bit the past month. Still the team to watch when ever they pull into a pit area at any race track in Central PA.

4. Greg Hodnett - Moves back into the top 5 with 2 big wins at Susquehanna and Port Royal earlier this month. Trying to find that magic the team had the past 2 years in Central PA.

 5. Freddie Rahmer - 2 wins at Williams Grove and 1 at Lincoln so far in 2017. Still the point leader at Williams Grove Speedway.

Just missing the top 5...

Doug Esh - On the shelf right now with an arm injury. Clings to the top 10 only on the strength of his 2 early season wins.

Brock Zearfoss - 1 win early in the season at Port but is still steady at every track he runs.

Brian Montieth - Almost to the mid point of the 2017 season and still only has 1 win at Lincoln Speedway. No driver has passed more cars then "The Edge" and has shown he is fast, but its always after starting deep in the field or waiting till the last 1/3 of the race to finally get going.

Gerard McIntyre - Picked up a win earlier in the season at Lincoln Speedway. Came within 1 lap of picking up his 2nd win 2 weeks ago loosing to our #1 ranked driver Wolfe. Has shown the speed to hang with the top drivers at Lincoln Speedway after a lackluster 2016 season.

Darren Miller picks up Port win

Date 6/24/2017 Port Royal

Darren Miller wired the field in the 18-lap 305 sprint main for the first win of his career at Port Royal Speedway.

Jeff Miller raced into second early from the sixth starting spot and kept leader Darren Miller honest for the entire distance.

Only on the final lap however as the pair headed to the checkered flag and Darren Miller got bottled up by traffic was Jeff Miller able to challenge for the victory.

The 360 Sprint cars had one week left to prepare before the big Firecracker 30 race at Selinsgrove Speedway coming up on July 1. Davie Franek of Wantage, N.J., proved he is more than ready. Franek charged from his 12th starting spot to pass race leader Eric Tomecek on lap 19 and go onto his third win of the season in the 25-lap 360 Sprint Car main event.

Tomecek passed race-long leader Ryan Kissinger on lap 11 after a restart. Once out front Tomecek led until a lap 15 caution flag which gave Franek the opportunity to be on the race leader’s rear bumper for the restart. Ryan Kissinger continued to struggle as Jason Shultz went past while in a battle with Justin Whittall. Whittall also completed the pass and then Derek Locke went by to fifth from his 14th starting spot.

As Franek crossed the line he was chased by Tomecek, Shultz, Whittall, and Locke. Franek mentioned in victory lane that the yellow flags fell his way during the event allowing him to come from his 12th starting spot. He also said he was better in traffic than he was once he was out front which also helped his cause.

Kissinger, Nate Snyder, Larry Kelleher, Colby Womer, and Nyle Berkes completed the top ten finishers.
Justin Whittall, Eric Tomecek, and Jim Shuster won the heat races for the 360 Sprinters.

Tony Adams was the fastest car for much of the night in the Jeff’s Auto Body and Recycling Late Models. Adams started sixth and picked his way to the front to take the race lead away from Dave Zona on lap 11.

Once out front Adams looked to be a lock for his first win in five years at the speedway. A yellow flag on lap 21 changed everything. The yellow flag put Steve Campbell on his tail for the restart. Adams, who was concerned his tire might have gone away under the yellow flag was able to fend off the challenge of Campbell and pulled away to his first win since 2012.

Campbell came home second followed by Tim Wilson, Donnie Schick, and Hayes Mattern. Kenny Trevitz came across the line in sixth ahead of Nathan Long, Dave Stamm, Dave Zona, and Luke Hoffner.
Wilson and Adams won heat races for the Super Late Models on Kids’ Night at the speedway.

The A&A Auto Store Pro Stock feature race had point imprecations the whole way through it. AJ Hoffman was in search of his first win of the season after winning five times a year ago. Hoffman is not in the top of the point battle so his main focus was a trip to victory lane.

On the other hand Shaun Lawton charged to the front of the field Saturday night hoping to better his point race counterpart Tommy Slanker. Slanker, the point leader, was caught up in an accident on lap five.

From that point on Lawton did all he could to work to the front and take a victory. Hoffman had other ideas while in a battle with Lawton, Kyle Bachman, and AJ Stroup. Hoffman and Lawton were left to settle the race for the win on the final lap.

Lawton led lap 14 of the 15 lap race. Hoffman came back and took the race lead back as the duo raced down the back stretch for the final time. In turns three and four Hoffman inched ahead and held on by just inches for the win over Lawton. Bachman, Stroup, and Dustin Snook competed the top five finishers.

Slanker recovered to run sixth, Jake Buck, Noah Jenson, John Fowler, and John Schreffler joined him in the top ten. Hoffman and Lawton were the heat race winners for the Pro Stocks.

The Roadrunners raced for the $400 payday on Saturday night. Daren Rice lead the way early in a tight battle with Keith Bissinger and Will Brunson. Bissinger lost his left front tire and that took him out of contention. On the restart, Brian Johnson made an attempt to slide in front of the leaders going into turn one and two after charging into the battle for the lead from his 15th starting spot.

Johnson made contact with Rice and Brunson took the lead. A yellow flag disregarded the pass for the lead. Rice held the lead until lap ten when Johnson made the winning pass. Johnson crossed the checkered flag ahead of Rice, Tom Brunson, Ken Schreffler, and Tom Underwood. Ricky Buss, Butch Shaffer, Will Bruson, Brandon Shultz, and Brian Mabus.

Smith Cope and Keith Bissinger won heat races for the Roadrunners.

Saturday July 1st is the Firecracker 30 at Selinsgrove Speedway. The prelude to the night’s racing will be the annual Selinsgrove Ford Market Street Race Car Parade at 4 p.m. The 360 Sprint cars will compete to be the winner of the 15th running of the Firecracker 30 paying $3,000 to win plus the Late Models, Pro Stocks, and Roadrunners.

Thanks to Todd Benner of Selinsgrove Ford there will be added purse money in each class. The winner of the Late Models will receive a $2,000. The Pro Stock ($650) and the Roadrunner ($450) winners will also receive extra money as well as the top three finishers in each class.

Saturday night was Kids’ Night at the speedway. A big thank you to all the fans that came out to take part in the events and also to the drivers and business’s that donated items for the kids.

Murphy Gets LM First, Sites, Updegraff and McClane Score Wins
By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA…6/24/17

Gregg Foster held back all challenges to capture his first win of the year in Saturday night’s 25-lap Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman feature at Susquehanna Speedway.

Aboard his American Legion Department of Pennsylvania No. 32, the Harrisburg, PA racer powered from his fourth starting spot into the lead on the first lap and never looked back in becoming the sixth different winner in seven events this season.

Foster held on through all 25 laps but a late race red flag with 19 laps complete put two-time winner Kenny Edkin on his bumper.

Foster kept Edkin at bay to take the win with Edkin, ninth starting Russ Mitten, 14th starter and Hard Charger Mike Enders and Jay Fannasy making up the top five finishers.

        Completing the top ten finishers were Frankie Herr, 15th starter Tony Jackson, Paul Miller, Devin Beidel and Doug Dodson.

Paul Miller, Herr and Jake Miller were heat race winners for the 29-car field while Dodson took the consolation win.

Matt Murphy outran defending track champion Randy Christine, Jr. to score his first career Susquehanna Speedway feature win in the 25-lap Bernheisel Race Cars 358 Late Model feature.

        Murphy started on the pole and led all 25 laps but had to keep Christine at bay during seven caution periods, including one with less than ten laps remaining in the event.

Following the Fallston, MD driver under the checkered flag were Christine,  JR Rodriquez, Ben Whitaker and 12th starting Sean Merkel with Daulton Bigler, Joe Lusk, Hard Charger Tim Murphy up from 18th, Justin Ehrhart and Sonny Norris.

Sam Gallagher and Rodriquez were heat winners for the 20 late models.

Two weeks after a disqualification, veteran Kory Sites raced his way back to victory lane in the 20-lap Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stock feature.

Sites started 11th and took the lead from Matt Adams on the sixth lap and withstood many yellows before becoming the eighth different winner in as many street stock mains this season.

Mike Potts finished in the runner-up spot over Adams, 12th starting Mike Walls and 24th starter and Hard Charger Brad Bingaman as Brandon Wanner, Doug Barber, Jim Palm, Eric McClane and Scott Thunberg completed the top ten.

Heat winners for the 29 street stocks went to Mike Buckley, Ryan Smith and Potts with Jamey Huls winning the consolation.

Alex Updegraff picked up his seventh win of the season in the regularly scheduled Superior Homes Extreme Stock feature as he held back Patrick McClane for the win with Kyle Emig, John Frye and Tyler Knaub the top five.

McClane won the makeup 20-lap Extreme Stock feature that was lost to curfew on June 10th as he picked up his second season win over Updegraff, Emig, Knuab and Donnie Broderick.

Susquehanna Speedway returns to action Saturday, July 1st with the Dellingers Auto Body Firecracker 40 presented by Sutliff Chevrolet for the Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman joined by the the Bernheisel Race Cars 358 Late Models and the Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stocks.

Arnold first repeat winner in “358” sprints; Cullum two-for-two in All American Outlaws
ABBOTTSTOWN, PA – June 24, 2017 – It was a big night for the Dietrich family in a thriller Saturday at Lincoln Speedway.

In the end, Danny Dietrich claimed his fifth win of the year over brother Billy and Freddie Rahmer in a three-car battle that went down to the finish.

“That was freakin’ awesome! That’s some good racing there, ain’t it?,” said Dietrich after scoring his 36th career Lincoln win, “I used the wall to not run into somebody else, so we’re glad to be standing here.”

The winner started ninth, with brother Billy starting fourth, and Freddie Rahmer starting sixth. Polesitter Tim Glatfelter grabbed the lead at the drop of the green was immediately challenged by Billy.

The red flag came out on lap five when points leader Brian Montieth spun in turns three and four, collecting Jim Siegel and Matt Campbell, who rolled onto his side. Those three were battling for seventh place at the time. That was the only break in the 25-lap event, with Billy Dietrich claiming the lead from Glatfelter on the restart.

Freddie Rahmer got by Glatfelter for second on lap eight, and Danny Dietrich moved past Glatfelter to enter the top three on lap ten. That set up a 15-lap battle for the lead through lapped traffic which saw Rahmer and Danny swap second several times. Danny officially took over the runner-up spot on lap 15, with Rahmer reclaiming second on lap 17. Danny reclaimed second on 19, and began to pressure brother Billy.

He drove around Billy with a slider on lap 22, and led the rest of the way, finishing 1.47 seconds ahead of Billy, with Freddie crossing a close third.

“I drove harder than everybody else,” said Dietrich, “My brother ran hard, too. It looked like he just went away at the end. He was so good early and took the lead from Freddie. We just caught up the last five laps. The car got free and we could run the top. I was running the bottom early on, and thought I was pretty good around there. I was hoping it was still there at the end, and it was. Once I got the lead, I moved back to the bottom and was hoping that no one could take the long way around me.”

11th-starting Kyle Moody finished fourth, and Cory Haas completed a spectacular run to come from 22nd starting spot to finish fifth. Sixth through tenth were Glatfelter, Campbell (returning from the early-race crash), Gerard McIntyre, Jr., Tyler Ross, and Chad Trout.

Heats for the 23 “410” Sprints were won by Campbell, Montieth, and Glatfelter.

Dillsburg’s Chris Arnold came from 12th starting spot to score his second win in a row and become the first repeat winner in 11 feature events in the 20-lap “358” sprint car feature.

Arnold was already up to fifth by the end of the fourth lap, got around both Todd Gracey and Brie Hershey to move into third on lap eight, caught Matt Findley for second on lap 11, and then took the lead from polesitter and race-long leader Jake Eldreth on lap 12. Brie Hershey and Findley got together while battling for third on lap 15, but Eldreth couldn’t catch Arnold over the final six laps, crossing one full second behind for the runner-up spot.

In a late-race charge, Chase Dietz (driving the Roger McKeehan #4R) advanced to third at the finish, with C.J. Tracy and Ashley Cappetta crossing fourth and fifth.

Heats for the 30 “358” Sprints were won by Findley, Tracy, and Gracey, with Troy Wagaman, Jr. winning the consolation.

Justin Cullum came from ninth starting spot to win the 20-lap All American Outlaw feature event. He advanced quickly through the field and caught race-long leader Jim Minter for the lead on lap nine. He crossed 1.03 seconds ahead of eventual runner-up Jeff McCauley, with Randy Doty, John Holmes, and Joe Davis rounding out the top five.

Minter pulled up lame late in the race, ending his night.

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

Jim Yoder scores super lates, Darren Miller in 305s and Powell in xtremes

Photo courtesy of Jason McConnell
Port Royal – Lucas Wolfe of Mechanicsburg came back from an opening lap rollover and a restart position of 16th to blast to his third 410 sprint car victory of the season at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night, taking $3,200 for the win.

In the 22-lap super late model main, Jim Yoder took the win aboard a car normally run by his son Dylan Yoder.

In the 305 sprint main Darren Miller was the winner and Bill Powell scored the xtreme stock feature to close out the night.

The opening lap of the 25-lap 410 sprint car main was marred by a third turn 11-car melee that saw Wolfe turn over to begin the incident that ended up collecting 10 more machines with some cars flipping through the corner.

The incident began when second starter Curt Stroup suddenly lost power as he traversed the backchute, sending the rest of the field scrambling to avoid him.

Wolfe turned into the first victim but others involved included TJ Stutts, Jordan Givler, Ryan Taylor, Davey Sammons, Kody Lehman, AJ Flick, Dale Blaney, Cale Grubb and Blane Heimbach.

After the lengthy red flag period for clean up, all but four cars were able to rejoin with Wolfe restarting 16th in the field.

Once the race got going, new second starter Steve Buckwalter took the lead aboard the Wilson No. 38 with new fourth starter Dylan Cisney blasting into second on the second tour.

Buckwalter was fleet at the front and Cisney was having trouble closing any distance but when Buckwalter suddenly lost power on the 10th lap, just after entering the backmarkers, Cisney inherited control with Greg Hodnett now in second.

Hodnett would jab at the lead with Cisney reclaiming the spot thanks to impressive rallies in turn two.

Using the top groove, the leaders displayed fantastic bursts of speed as they hit the mid-point of the second turn and that sent them careening onto the straightaway with the power to dart by traffic and each other with ease.

Chasing the front pair at the halfway point was Brock Zeafoss and Lance Dewease as the front four all kept a torrid and hectic pace around the oval, jetting off of the second turn.

Dewease struck next on the 14th lap when he made a two-car low side pass to blast by Zearfoss and Hodnett to go from fourth to second.

And shortly after the lap was scored, Joey Hershey slowed to a stop on the backchute, setting up a restart with Wolfe up to fifth.

Dewease bolted low and into the lead in the first corner when action resumed with Cisney dropping off of the cushion as the pair ran onto the backstretch to pull back inside Dewease for control.

Cisney beat Dewease into the third corner to reclaim the lead but suddenly Wolfe was on the scene.

Using a lightning-fast burst of speed off of the second turn cushion to annihilate Zearfoss, Hodnett and Dewease in the blink of an eye, Wolfe crossed the line as the pacesetter with nine laps to go.

And that was the end of the story as Wolfe blistered the speedway to the finish line to record the win going away with a 2.819 second advantage over point leader Cisney.

Dewease was third followed by Hodnett and Zearfoss.

Sixth through 10th went to Mike Wagner, James McFadden, Blane Heimbach, AJ Flick and Carl Bowser.

Heats went to Heimbach, Wolfe and Blaney with Jordan Givler taking the consolation race.

Polesitter Jason Schmidt led the first lap of the super late model main before Jim Yoder got the lead, crossing the line on lap two with a .015 second advantage.

But Yoder would steadily extend that lead over the ensuing laps as seventh starter Coleby Frye raced in to second on the ninth tour.

Frye tried to close in for the win to no avail but then his race ended with two laps go to when he slowed to a stop.

Schmidt failed to challenge on the restart, settling for second by 1.003 seconds, followed by Andy Haus, Nick Dickson and Trent Brenneman.

Sixth through 10th went to Dave Brouse Jr., Mike Lupfer, Dylan Yoder, Chris Casner and Tim Smith Jr.

Heats went to Frye and Smith Jr.

Darren Miller wired the field in the 18-lap 305 sprint main for the first win of his career at Port Royal Speedway.

Jeff Miller raced into second early from the sixth starting spot and kept leader Darren Miller honest for the entire distance.

Only on the final lap however as the pair headed to the checkered flag and Darren Miller got bottled up by traffic was Jeff Miller able to challenge for the victory.

Tyler Reeser rode home third followed by Cale Reigle and Ken Duke Jr.

Heats went to Kyle Ganoe, Duke Jr. and Drew Ritchey with the consolation race going to Tyler Denochik.

Josh Bender led the first two circuits of the xtreme stock main before Kevin Imes took over.

But Imes fell victim to one-time winner Bill Powell on the fifth tour.

Powell was chased to the finish by two-time winner Herm Renninger, who took over second on the seventh loop.

Ryan Zook, Walt Peters and Pete Leister completed the top five.

Tye Wolfgang Promotions to Present “Crowd Pleaser” Award in Speedweek

The 2017 Speedweek is set to be a big one. Outside invaders, local powerhouses, and lots of money are raising the hype. Tye Wolfgang Promotions is looking to throw in a little flavor.

“I wanted to do something that would build anticipation and give back to the teams while getting fans involved,” said Wolfgang of the plan. The award will be titled as the “Crowd Pleaser” award. The driver that passes the most cars combined all week long in the main events, wins. Simple, no gimmicks, no stipulations, just passing. “Basically it’s a weeklong hard charger award. You don’t have to even win a hard charger award.”

If a driver competes in less events and passes more cars then someone who raced every race, the driver who passed the most cars wins, simple. “I literally can’t make this any easier, pass more cars than anybody else, and take the prizes.”

Wolfgang is always looking for fan interaction. His non-self-profit efforts rely on support from the local scene to give back to teams. “I get nothing out of this stuff, I just do it to give back to the teams.” The fans come in in the sense of prizes. Wolfgang would like to accumulate, not only some cash, but tires and fuel for the winning team. Sprint Dudes, a website in which Wolfgang is employed by has stepped up to provide the award plaque that the winner will receive. “Fred at Sprint Dudes is an awesome guy. He stepped up and is providing us with the plaque so we didn’t have to worry about that end of things.”

So now Wolfgang is going to work trying to find the “pricey prizes.”  He is set looking for the fans help while still giving them something in return. “We are looking definitely for tires and money to give the winning team and some fuel wouldn’t hurt.” Any group or person who donates $50 or more will be listed as a full sponsor, but of course anything is a help. “All week long I will have Tye Wolfgang Promotions and special “Crowd Pleaser” decals for sale for $5 each along with some items from Sprint Dudes. “ I can’t stress enough that anything, I mean anything helps. If you walk by and dump your pocket change in the “Crowd Pleaser “Award jar we will have a little something for you. I want to please everyone.  Everyone who donates can sign the banner that will be along all week long. At the end, the banner with everyone’s signature will be given to the winning driver as well.
Wolfgang wanted to up the ante a little. “If we get three tires or $500 I’ll do a big online give away and Tye Wolfgang Promotions will buy one lucky fans way into Saturday at the National Open.” Of course he is open to expansion or suggestion. “Heck if someone comes along and wants to donate something to the raffle or whatever we’ll do that too! You just get ahold of me.”

More details will follow in the days to come; however Wolfgang needs to get a jump on things, and any pre-order for decals or pre-donations are extremely appreciated. “We got to get rolling man, it’s Speedweek. I’m going to drop a hint here, but we could use tires, there isn’t a team in the country that won’t appreciate tires.”

Wolfgang can be contacted for any reason concerning the promotion at 717-250-2602, or on twitter at @gramley23. “I want to thank everyone in advance.” – Tye  


Weber wins 600cc micros; Rain forces postponement of 270cc micros, vintage cars, & limited stocks

HANOVER, PA (6/23/2017) – Steve Owings padded his points win by claiming his third win of the year in the 25-lap “358” sprint car feature at Trail-Way Speedway Friday night.

“We’ve got a fast car once we get going,” said Owings upon exiting the Westminster Transmission/Westminster Lawn/Valentine Motorsports #35 in victory lane, “But we’ve been stumbling on the starts.  We weren’t fast on the initial start.  But that red flag on the first lap gave us a second chance.”

An inversion draw put Owings on the pole for the start.  Owings appeared to have trouble getting up to speed on the starts and lone restart once the race got underway.  Owings followed outside front row starter David Holbrook on the first lap, but a Chris Priar flip in turns three and four forced a complete restart.

Owings was able to hold off Holbrook on the second attempt to start the race and was scored the leader of every lap, despite stumbling again on the lone restart after that (a lap 17 caution for an Isaac Sneeringer spin on turn two).

His final margin of victory over Holbrook was 2.03 seconds, with Dwight Leppo, Cody Fletcher, and Joe Trone, Jr. completing the top five.

“I don’t know why we don’t get more cars,” said Owings of the thin field of nine, “We’ve been tearing some cars up in the heats, and maybe that’s why guys don’t come.  It’s a lot of fun here.”

The lone qualifier for 358’s was won by Sneeringer, who was credited with a sixth-place finish after spinning again on the final lap of the feature.

Brad Weber scored the win in the 20-lap 600cc micro-sprint feature after starting on the pole and leading every lap.  It was Weber’s first win of the year and the 10th of his Trail-Way career, moving him into a three-way tie with Dwayne Gutshall and Tyler Walton on the all-time TW win list.  His final margin of victory over Steven Bull was 3.22 seconds.

Darren Kauffman, Zane Rudisill, and Hannah Riser rounded out the top five.

Heats for the 13 600cc micros were won by Weber and Kauffman.

Predicted rains arrived during the Mason Dixon 270cc micro-sprint feature, forcing postponement of the remainder of the event, which will be completed on Friday, July 21st.

Also postponed by rain were the limited stock and vintage car features.  The limited stock feature will be made up next Saturday, July 1st, and the make-up date for the Les Coghill Memorial for vintage cars is still to be determined.

Next Friday, June 30, 2017, Trail-Way Speedway will be back in action with the 358 Sprints, 600 Micro Sprints, Central PA Legends and Street Stocks. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. and racing begins at 7:45 p.m.

The following day, Saturday, July 1, Trail-Way hosts the “Kings of Crash” Junk Car Demolition. Also in action will be the Limited Stocks, Figure 8 and Ladies Powder Puff. Gates open at 4:00 p.m. with heats scheduled to begin at 6:00 p.m.

For all the latest news and related information from Trail-Way Speedway, fans are reminded to visit the speedway website at The complete story and agate from each race night is posted shortly after the final checkered flag.

Selinsgrove Speedway capped off a big two-race weekend Saturday night in thrilling and record-breaking fashion with a strong field of race cars and another super racing surface.

The Patriot Sprint Tour invaded as part of the 14th Annual Joe Whitcomb Memorial for 360 sprint cars to honor the memory of the late Millersburg driver who lost his life in a racing accident at the track in 2003.

Nate Snyder led early in the 25-lap Sprint Car event showing the way over defending Patriot Sprint Tour champion Jarrid Zimbardi. Cody Keller quickly broke into the top three in the early laps.

The caution flag flew on lap 11 for a slowing Jordan Thomas and interrupted a great battle for second between Zimbardi and Keller.

On the restart Jason Shultz threw a slider on Keller to take over the third spot and soon worked his way by Zimbardi into second. Shultz began to close in on the race leader after securing second. Soon Chad Layton and Davie Franek charged to third and fourth.

Over the next few laps the top four closed up and with three to go Snyder led Shultz, Layton, and Franek in a tight high speed chase with no lap cars between them.

Shultz pulled the last corner slide job on Snyder and looked like he might have stolen the victory away. Snyder turned down the speedway and crossed Shultz over coming to the line for the win. Snyder's victory was by just .052, or half of a car-length, over Shultz. Franek ended up third followed by Layton and Makr Smith.

Jared Zimbardi, Robbie Stillwagon, Derek Locke, Larry Kelleher, and Eric Tomecek made up the top ten finishers.

360 Sprint Car heat race winners were Justin Whittall, Eric Tomecek, and Jason Shultz. George Suprick won the B-Main for the 29 car field.

The Fast Tees Fast Time award was taken by Mark Smith with a time of 17.577.

Tommy Slanker isn't the current A&A Auto Store Pro Stock point leader for nothing. Slanker drove from his eighth starting spot to make the pass of Dustin Snook for the race lead on lap 9. Snook, the race long leader, tried to come back and challenge Slanker but spun on lap 12 to bring out a caution flag.

John Fowler took over the second spot and gave Slanker headaches over the next two corners before AJ Stroup moved into the runner up spot. Stroup was out of time by the time he got to second as Slanker was crossing the line for his fourth win of the season.

Slanker dedicated the win to his dad and grandfathers on Father's Day weekend. His grandfather is the reason he runs the number 40. Stroup was second followed by Fower, Brandon Moser, and Lori Croop.

Heat races for the Pro Stocks went to Tommy Slanker and Dustin Snook.

Jeff Rine started in the eighth spot but wasted little time taking the race lead on lap eight from the race leader Tim Wilson.

Rine would pull away from the field and go on to win and set a new track record. Rine shattered the old record (9:02.203) by 17 seconds setting a new time of 8:45.459. Rine dedicated the win to the Eckert family and Rick Eckert who lost his dad Junior earlier in the day.

The battle everyone was watching on the track were for spots two through six. Tim Wilson spent the second half of the race trying to hold off a hard charging Dylan Yoder. Yoder caught Wilson on lap 17 and the two raced side by side for the next five laps before Yoder secured the spot pushing Wilson back to third.

Behind the battle for second was a tight race between Gene Knaub, Steve Campbell, and Hayes Mattern. Mattern held the spot before getting passed by Campbell. Once Campbell went to fourth Knaub followed him by. Knaub then made the pass of Campbell to take the fourth spot.

Rine, Yoder, Wilson, Knaub, and Campbell were the top five followed by Mattern, Dave Brouse Jr., Kenny Trevitz, Donnie Schick, and Jason Schmidt.

Late Model heat winners were Jeff Rine and Gene Knaub.

In a thrilling Roadrunner feature event Will Brunson passed Ryan Leister on the last lap to claim the checkered flag. Brandon Shultz finished third followed by Ryan Zook and Michael Smith.

Smith Cope, Butch Shaffer, Dennis Conrad, Bob Bussey, and Kevin Dobson finished out the top ten in the feature event.

Tom Underwood and Bob Bussey won Roadrunner heat races.

Next Saturday night Selinsgrove Speedway will swing back into action with Kid's Night featuring the 360 Sprint Cars, Super Late Models, Pro Stocks, and Roadrunners. The event will have a 7:30 start time. Track gates will open at 5 p.m.

Also make sure to mark your calendar for the Saturday, July 1, Selinsgrove event featuring the Selinsgrove Ford Market Street Race Car parade at 4 p.m. prior to the evening’s racing events. The 360 Sprint Cars will compete in the Firecracker 30 along with Late Models, Pro Stocks, and Roadrunners plus Fireworks.

TYLER REESER GETS SECOND SUSQUEHANNA 305 WIN Christine Repeats in LM; Morgan and Montgomery New Winners

By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA…6/17/17
Tyler Reeser became the first repeat winner in Freedmont® Mortgage Lending PASS/IMCA Sprint car action Saturday night at Susquehanna Speedway.

The Orwigsburg racer started second and wired the 20 lap distance to pick up his second win of the season at the York Haven oval.

Reeser, who won the Jim Strausbaugh Bald Hill Shootout back in April had no trouble in scoring his latest victory as he took the checkered flag ahead of Kyle Ganoe, Kyle Craker, Colby Dice and 10th starting Zach Newlin.

Ken Duke, Jr. rode home sixth ahead of 14th starter Dave Grube, Stephanie Dodson, Jared Zionkowski and Ian Detweiler.

Reeser, Newlin and Duke were heat race winners for the 21-305 Sprints pitside.

Manchester’s Randy Christine, Jr. strengthened his track point lead with this third feature win of the season in the Bernheisel Race Cars 358 Late Model feature.

Eric Hohol and Cameron Benyou won heats with 16 late models on hand.

Division sponsor Craig Morgan kept the different winner streak alive in the Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stock feature as the Halifax racer became the seventh different winner in as many races.

       Morgan, who started fourth, took the lead from Kevin Sigler on the third lap and stayed out front to pick up that first win of the year ahead of Mike Potts,  Eric Tripp, Jim Palm and Matt Adams with Jimmy Combs, Kyle Saylor, Sigler, Artwerks Hard Charger Dalton Frye (who started 18th) and Randy Zechman completing the top ten finishers.

Sigler and Combs were heat race winners for the 20 street stocks.

Lucas Montgomery was the fifth and final leader in the 20-lap ServiceMaster Clean Central PA Legends feature as he picked up his first win of the season.

Scott Houdeshell, Mason Chaney and Dan Morris all took turns at leading the feature before seventh starting Montgomery gained control on the 12th lap and held on despite a lap 18 yellow flag.

He became the third different Legends winner this season at Susky in taking the win over Hayden Pascoe, Triple T Camp Hard Charger Travis Perry who started 10th, Chaney and Houdeshell.

Chris Arnold becomes 10th different winner in 10 races in 358 sprints

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA – June 17, 2017 – Lucas Wolfe took advantage of one of his few opportunities in lapped traffic with just over a lap to go to score the $4,200 top prize in Saturday’s BAPS Night 410 sprint car feature at Lincoln Speedway.

Wolfe, who picked up the $1,000 bonus from BAPS with the win, set fast time on the night and started fourth. He quickly advanced to second at the start and chased polesitter and race-long leader Gerard McIntyre, Jr. the entire way, pulling onto McIntyre’s bumper for restart following the event’s only caution for a spinning Anthony Macri in turn two of lap 16.

By that time, Brian Montieth had come from his 14th starting spot to pass Danny Dietrich and move into fifth just before the caution.

Wolfe was unable to stay with McIntyre for the next several laps until the leaders hit lapped traffic with five laps to go.

“Gerard was very good…way better…especially off of two. I thought I might get some opportunities and was fortunate to get a good start and get by Freddie. I was never able to close seriously on McIntyre,” said Wolfe in victory lane, “He was able to navigate traffic pretty well. So after the restart, I thought I might have to try and find something that was a little different.”

“I was pretty good on the bottom down there off of two. I could never make anything work in three and four, and just kept trying. I was really overdriving trying to keep up with him,” said Wolfe, “Fortunately, once we got to traffic, it all played out correct for me. It slowed him up enough to give me a few shots at him, and was finally able to make one stick there at the end.”

Wolfe’s race-winning pass came in the midst of lapped traffic while exiting turn four with the white flag waving.
McIntyre tried his best to reclaim the lead in turns one of two of lap 25, but settled for second, with Brian Montieth making a late-race pass to get by Freddie Rahmer for third. Rahmer and Cory Haas completed the top five.

Sixth through tenth were Danny Dietrich, Chad Trout, Tim Glatfelter, Billy Dietrich, and Robbie Kendall.

Heats for the “410” Sprints were won by Kendall, Billy Dietrich, and Haas. Fast time in time trials over the 21-car 410 sprint field was set by Wolfe with a one-lap time of 13.624-seconds (99.090 MPH).

Dillsburg’s Chris Arnold became the tenth different winner in ten 2017 “358” sprint car events after starting eighth and taking the race lead from outside front row starter and race-long leader Mike Bittinger following a lap four restart.

Arnold picked up a $300 bonus from BAPS to round out his $1,300 win, the third of his career at Lincoln.

Points leader Adrian Shaffer continued his streak of top five finishes by crossing second. Third through fifth were 11th-starting Doug Hammaker, Cody Fletcher, and Bittinger. Sixth through tenth were polesitter Landon Myers, Todd Rittenhouse, Jr., Matt Findley, Brie Hershey, and Brent Shearer.

Heats for the 23 “358” Sprints were won by Chris Frank, Shaffer, and Fletcher.

Lincoln Speedway is back in action next Saturday night, June 24th, with PEPSI NIGHT featuring the 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints, and All-American Outlaws. Gates open at 5:30 PM, with racing action getting underway at 7:30 PM.

Ryan Taylor started on the pole of the regular 25-lap 410-sprint car main with Blane Heimbach starting second.

The initial start was red-flagged when Joey Hershey turned over in the third turn, collecting Curt Stroup and TJ Stutts.

After the stoppage, the event went non-stop to the finish with leader Taylor entering the backmarkers with 15 laps to go.

Taylor kept nearly a straightaway between himself and pursuer Heimbach for most of the event but with less than 10 laps to go, Heimbach began chewing into the lead.

It was clear with five laps to go that Taylor was losing speed in the third and fourth turns while Heimbach was gaining with every tour.

It took until lap 23 for Heimbach to finally take advantage of a slipping Taylor when he was able to ride the inside lane underneath Taylor for the lead as the pair headed for the two-to-go sign.

Taylor came back for a brief moment in the first turn as Heimbach rolled the top and Taylor tried getting back by with an low side move.

But Heimbach dropped off of the cushion to again take control and run to the finish by .944 seconds, worth $3,200.

Taylor settled for second followed by Trey Starks, Dylan Cisney and Trenton Sheaffer.

Sixth through 10th went to Mike Wagner, Justin Barger, Brock Zearfoss, Steve Buckwalter and TJ Stutts.

Heats went to Stutts and Heimbach.

Selinsgrove Speedway fended off the rain while Lucas Wolfe of Mechanicsburg fended off Brock Zearfoss of Jonestown for the victory in Friday night’s 30-lap Ray Tilley Classic for 410 sprint cars.

It was Wolfe’s second win in a row at the track in 410 sprint car competition after having won the National Open last September, the last time the 410 sprints competed at the track.

The victory, Wolfe’s third career at Selinsgrove and fifth overall this season, was worth $4,088 plus the custom crystal trophy cup from the Tilley family.

Andrew Yoder of Middleburg won his second straight 355 econo late model race at the track in the division’s 15-lap main event.

TJ Stutts and Lucas Wolfe shared the front row for the start of the sprint car main event with Wolfe grabbing the lead down the backstretch. Fourth-place starter Brock Zearfoss raced underneath Stutts at the same time and began his pursuit of the leader.

By lap six, Wolfe began to encounter slower traffic as Zearfoss raced second, followed by Stutts, and third-place starter Danny Dietrich. At the halfway point, Zearfoss began to close in on Wolfe in a high-speed chase around the Superspeedway of Dirt Track Racing.

With eight laps to go, Zearfoss almost got within striking distance in traffic. The race’s first and only caution flag unfurled on lap 25 when fifth-place runner Jason Shultz blew a tire and parked his sprinter sideways in turns one and two.

When the race resumed, Wolfe maintained the front spot with Zeafoss in tow. The final two laps saw Dietrich power by Stutts for the third position. At the checkered flag, Wolfe was victorious by just two seconds over Zearfoss, Deitrch, Stutts, and Aaron Ott.

Polesitter Tim Fedder led the start of the econo late model main event. A close battle unfolded at the front of the pack between Fedder, Todd Snook, and Shaun Miller. On the second circuit, second-place starter Andrew Yoder reclaimed the position and set his sights on the leader.

On a lap five restart, Yoder took the lead from Fedder with an inside through turn two. Fedder later brought out the caution flag for a flat tire and rejoined the race. Yoder continued to set the pace and posted a mere 1.39 second margin of victory over Miller, Fedder, Devin Hart, and Jared Fulkroad.

SNEERINGER CLAIMS SECOND ’17 WIN IN TRAIL-WAY 358 SPRINTS; Pascoe best in Central PA Legends feature; Stremmel, Hartlaub other TW winners

HANOVER, PA (6/16/2017) – Spring Grove’s Isaac Sneeringer took the lead from his fourth starting spot in the opening lap and led every lap of Friday night’s 25-lap “358” sprint car feature at Trail-Way Speedway.

And he did it in impressive fashion, crossing in a non-stop time of six minutes, seven point 94 seconds and lapping all but two other cars in the process.

“When you have good cars behind you, you can’t let up,” said Sneeringer upon exiting the ATI Worldwide Logistics #19Z in victory lane, “But she started overheating and I don’ know how many more laps it would have gone.”

Once it got started, the race went non-stop. But there were two earlier attempts to start the race.  On the initial start, Dwight Leppo (driving the Shai Morris #15s) and Cody Fletcher made contact in turns one and two, with Fletcher taken off on the stretcher.  Last week’s winner David Holbrook also pulled into the infield and retired for the night.  On the second attempt to start the race, T.J. DeHaven flipped exiting turn two but was unimjured.

Although Sneeringer led every lap, there was a race-long battle for second between J.B. Cunningham and Steve Owings, with Owings nipping Cunningham at the line. In the end, they were the only three cars to finish on the lead lap.

Crossing fourth and fifth one lap down were Joe Trone, Jr. and Zach Euculano.

Heats for the 11 sprint cars were won by Leppo and Hobrook.

Australia’s Hayden Pascoe scored his first Trail-Way win in the 20-lap Central PA Legends feature.  He started on the pole, led the first lap, then chased Scott Houdeshell for the next 13 laps before reclaiming the lead for good on lap 15.  Houdeshell settled for second a half-carlength behind, with Bill Diehl, Travis Mc Clelland, and 12th-starting Mason Chaney rounding out the top five.

Qualifiers for the 18 Legends were won by Diehl and the other Australian in the field Dan Morris. Morris spun the backstretch of lap 13 while running third in the feature and finished 11th.

Jeremy Stremmel won both the heat race and feature event for the eight street stocks on hand.

Mike Walls led the first lap but came to a stop in turn four of lap two, handing the lead to Stremmel.  Shortly thereafter, Brian Walls joined the chase, and was actually scored the leader of laps 13 through 15.  Stremmel reclaimed the lead on lap 16, and the two got together while racing for the lead in turn two of lap 17.  Walls suffered a flat tire and dropped from the field.

In the end, only three cars finished the race, with last week’s winner Michael Goodwin piloting an ill-handling race car to second and Aaron Beard third.
Terry Hartlaub won his first of the year in the non-stop 15-lap limited stock feature.  Cody Klinedinst led the first two laps and finished a close second, with Jason Chronister, Robbie Carroll, and Jeff Foster completing the top five.

Heats for the 22 limited stocks were won by Roy Denike, Klinedinst, and Justin Wagaman.

Next Friday, June 23, 2017, Trail-Way Speedway will be back in action with the 358 Sprints, Mason Dixon 270 Micro Sprints, 600 Micro Sprints, Limited Stocks and Vintage Cars (Les Coghill Memorial). Gates open at 5:30 p.m. and racing begins at 7:45 p.m.

For all the latest news and related information from Trail-Way Speedway, fans are reminded to visit the speedway website at The complete story and agate from each race night is posted shortly after the final checkered flag.

GENE KNAUB CAPTURES CARL BILLET MEMORIAL Mitten Takes Sportsman First while Hoffer Takes Street Stock 40

YORK HAVEN, PA…6/10/17
Gene Knaub showed the fast way around Susquehanna Speedway Saturday night as he captured the 30-lap FK Rod Ends Carl Billet Memorial for the Bernheisel Race Cars 358 Late Models.

Knaub’s win was his second of the season at the speedway and came with a $1,500 payday for his Superior Homes, 382 Auto Sales, Route 30 Seafood sponsored No. 1 team. Knaub’s win came in a race run in memory of one of the all time greats in 358 late model racing in Central Pennsylvania, Carl Billet-who passed in early 2013, just after claiming his seventh and final Susquehanna track championship.

Sean Merkel led the first six circuits before giving way to Knaub on the seventh lap. Knaub, who started fourth on the grid maintained the top spot as defending track champion Randy Christine, Jr. kept pace with the leader and had a lap 25 caution put him right on Knaub’s bumper. But Knaub, of Dover wasn’t to be denied the big win as he took the checkered flag ahead of Christine with ninth starting Shaun Jones, 10th starting Charles Potts and JR Rodriquez completing the top five finishers.

Sixth through tenth were Sam Gallagher, Travis Mease, 17th starter Steve Billet, 18th starter Sam Rial and Merkel.

Ralph Morgan,Jr. and Christine were heat winners for the 19 late models. Knaub was quick time during time trials with a lap of 19.023.

It’s been tough going for defending track champion Russ Mitten so far this season but the Newville racer came away with his first win of the season in the 25-lap Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman feature.

Mitten, who led the division with three wins and of course the track title last season has been hindered by all sorts of issues this season but that first win came in impressive fashion, coming from his ninth starting to claim the lead ith eight laps complete. Mitten never looked back as he drove away from the field to post the win in his Newville Electrical Services/RPM Chassis.

Kenny Edkin followed Mitten from the fifth row to finish in the runner-up spot over 16th starting Paul Miller, Devin Beidel and 19th starter Mike Enders as Gregg Foster, early race leader Bruce Buckwalter, Jr., Scott Dellinger, Jay Fannasy and Garrett Williamson rounded out the top ten finishers.

Steve Storrie, Frankie Herr and Chad Smith won heats for the 28 car field. Enders won the consolation.

In what turned out to be quite a marathon, Joey Hoffer scored the big win in the Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stock 40.

The 40 lap feature saw 11 cautions and one red, lots of crashed race cars but in the end it was Hoffer who led from the 12th lap take the win.

Hoffer became the sixth different winner in as many races this season and he took the win over Jasen Geesaman, early leader Craig Morgan, Jimmy Combs and Jim Palm.

Sixth went to Dalton Frye over Kevin Sigler, Jim Jacobs, David Dietz and Butch Helsel. Kory Sites crossed third but failed post race inspection.

Heats for the 33 street stocks were won by Ryan Smith, Kory Sites and Hoffer.

Morgan paced time trials with a lap of 21.565.

The Superior Homes Extreme Stock feature was postponed due to curfew. It will be made up on June 24.

Susquehanna Speedway returns to action Saturday, June 17th  on Newberry Township EMS/Fire/Police Night at the speedway as the Freedmont® Mortgage Lending PASS/IMCA 305 Sprints headline a four-division program joined by the Bernheisel Race Cars 358 Late Models, Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stocks and the ServiceMaster Clean Central PA Legends.
