HANOVER, PA (6/10/2016) – David Holbrook sneaked under race-long leader Wyatt Hinkle in the midst of heavy lapped traffic on turn four of lap 22 and drove to his first win of the year in the 25-lap “358” sprint car feature at Trail-Way Speedway Friday night.

“I have to thank lapped cars for their help,” said the Parkton, MD driver upon exiting the Mike Parris-owned Baird Heating & Cooling/Turning Stone Resort & Casino #77 in victory lane, “I kinda lost my mind for a few laps there, and I’m glad I came around.”

Holbrook started fifth, caught Jeff Halligan for fourth on lap four, passed Austin Kirby for third on lap five, and took second from Seth Kearchner on lap 12.  He chased polesitter Hinkle for the next ten laps until Hinkle got caught up behind lapped traffic with just over three laps to go.

“We learned some things tonight, and I told the guys I was going to win on turn four, and that’s where it happened,” said Holbrook, “We’ll be back again next time and try to do it again.”

The final margin of victory for Holbrook’s second career Trail-Way win was 2.91 seconds.

Hinkle settled for second, with 12th-starting Isaac Sneeringer third, hard charger Doug Hammaker (who started 16th) fourth, and Kearchner fifth.  Completing the top ten were Halligan, Tyler Walton, Randy Whisler, Cody Fletcher, and Mike Bittinger (who came from the back after spinning out on the second lap).

Qualifiers for the 19 sprinters were won by Bittinger and Kearchner.

Mike Rutherford took home $1,250 in prize money after winning the 25-lap Gary Keifert Memorial for the Mason-Dixon 270cc micro sprints.  Levi Peck, Nik Gower, Steven Cox, and Chad Myers crossed second through fifth.

Heats for the 31 270s were won by Chad Myers, Nicholas Skias, and Rutherford, with Toby Blumenshine winning the consolation event.

Alex Updegraff of Etters claimed his first career Trail-Way win in the 20-lap street stock feature.  He was followed across the line by Jeremy Stremmel, Matt Wampler, Jim Jacobs, and Marshall McMullen.

Street stock heats were won by Aaron Beard and Updegraff.

It was another one-two finish for the Chronisters in the 15-lap limited stock feature.  Jason Chronister ran to his second win of the year and 13th of his TW career, crossing .78 seconds ahead of brother Matt.  Travis Brown, Charles Millender, and Sarah Redmond were third through fifth.

Julio Perez and Jason Chronister were the heat winners for the 19 limited stocks on hand.

 Next Friday, June 17th, Trail-Way Speedway hosts the Precise Racing Products 358 Late Model Series along with the 600 Micro Sprints, ServiceMaster Clean Central PA Legends and the Vintage Cars.
