ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 9/24/2016 – “I said at the beginning of the night that the only thing better than winning a Lincoln Dirt Classic was winning two of them.”

So said Stevie Smith after claiming his second win in three years in the 40-lap $20,000-to-win “Dirt Classic” in the Pigeon Hills Saturday night.

Smith, who started third after setting third-fast time and gathering the third-most points in time trials and qualifying, followed front row starters Lucas Wolfe and James McFadden the first two laps before catching the Kasey Kahne Racing #4 in turns three and four of lap three.

One lap later saw the “Dirt Classic” lose its front row, with McFadden turning over in turn four to bring out the red, and then Wolfe going to the pits with an oil leak during the red flag. Smith assumed the lead for the restart, with Danny Dietrich, Gerard McIntyre, and Matt Campbell in tow.

But it was only the first time he led the race, as Dietrich closed on the leader in lapped traffic. Smith, who admitted having trouble with the lapped traffic, lost the lead to Dietrich on turn four of lap 30. One lap later, Adam Wilt flipped in turn four, leading to a fuel stop. At the time, 11th-starting and rapidly closing Greg Hodnett was about to make it a three-car battle for the lead.

And that’s exactly what it became on the restart with nine laps to go. Smith and Dietrich both bounced off the walls on subsequent slide jobs, with Smith coming out with the lead on lap 35. A lap later, the final caution of the event came out for Cory Haas, who spun in turn one.

That set up a dramatic three-car battle between Smith, Dietrich, and Hodnett for the win over the final five laps.

“I told Fred (Rahmer) during the red that Danny’s going to go to the top, so we’re going to have to run the bottom,” said Smith in victory lane, “When I saw him peel down to the bottom, I knew that was my chance to go back around him on the top. We finished second last year and we didn’t wait to finish second again this year. We ran our tail off. Danny did a nice job, but when you get out there in the lead, you’re not sure which way to go. He’s been really fast this year. I think being in second may have won us that race.”

“All these guys are tough in my book,” concluded Smith when reflecting on a talent-laden 48-car field, “The older I get the better they look!”

In the end, Smith pulled away to a 1.03-second win over Dietrich, with Hodnett settling for third. Lance Dewease received the $700 bonus ($500 from the Beer Hill Gang and $200 from Winebrenner Harley in Hanover) as hard charger for coming from 14th starting spot to finish fourth, with Brian Montieth coming from 15th starting spot to finish fifth.

Sixth through tenth were McIntyre, Tim Wagaman, Jim Siegel, Campbell, and Ryan Smith.

The final transfer spot of the night went to J.J. Grasso, as he and track champ Alan Krimes got together just before the finish line in the B main, with Krimes crossing sideways at the finish line to cross fifth.

Fast time in time trials over the 48-car field was set by Matt Campbell, running his first-ever Lincoln 410 sprint car race, with a one-lap time of 13.182-seconds (102.412 MPH).

Two rounds of heats were won by James McFadden, Lucas Wolfe, Bill Balog, Danny Dietrich, Ryan Smith, Terry McCarl, JJ Grasso, Greg Hodnett, Brent Marks, and Adam Wilt. Tyler Esh won the C-Main and Freddie Rahmer won the B-Main.

Next Saturday night, Oct. 1st, Lincoln will be dark to allow its drivers to compete in the Williams Grove National Open.

Lincoln returns to action for its season finale on Saturday, October 8th with the annual Hank Gentzler Memorial Manufacturers Appreciation Night presented by Panchos Racing Products featuring the 410 and 358 sprint cars, along with the All American Outlaws.

GREG HODNETT TUNES UP FOR CHAMPION RACING OIL NATIONAL OPEN WITH SPRINT CAR FEATURE WIN Phil Walter beats track champion Kevin Nouse at the line for 358 sprint win

MECHANICSBURG, PA – Greg Hodnett went into the night as the Williams Grove Speedway point leader, but hadn’t won a 410 sprint car feature at the track since the end of March.

He changed that stat Friday night as he took the lead from Lucas Wolfe in lapped traffic and controlled the final 14 laps to win his first 410 feature at the track since the second race of the season. He did win three features in the 360 sprints over the course of the summer.

Things were going Hodnett’s way, but a header pipe broke off with three laps to go affecting the car’s performance.

“We lost a lot of horsepower, but being out in front we had a huge advantage to dictate when to take off and how hard I could run,” said Hodnett, of Spring Grove.

“We had a lot of things go our way. We were lucky to finish and had a pretty good car. We are pretty happy going into next week.”

Wolfe started on the pole and drove into the lead over Hodnett to start the final 25-lap main event before next weekend’s Champion Racing Oil National Open.

Wolfe led by about a half-straightaway with five laps completed as they raced around a fast cushion.

As Wolfe closed on the back of the field, Hodnett closed on him with 10 laps completed. Hodnett made an inside move off turn four to take the lead the next time around.

“We caught two guys that were running the top in lapped traffic,” said Hodnett. “Lucas had to momentarily check-up getting into turn three. I shot to the bottom and waited to hit the moisture coming down the straightaway and it worked out for us. Sometimes, it’s better to run second in those situations.”

The red flag stopped the race with 14 laps completed for a hard third turn crash by Danny Dietrich, who walked back to the pit area. A major clean-up was needed as Dietrich’s sprinter leaked fuel across the third turn.

Hodnett led the field down for the double-file restart as the Grove used the World of Outlaws format for the race. Lance Dewease pitted from the fifth spot before the restart.

Wolfe tried to take the lead back, but Hodnett slammed the door as they raced into turn three. Stevie Smith and Wolfe raced hard for second as Hodnett pulled away. Cory Haas drove by Aaron Ott and into fifth.

Hodnett streaked away from the field as Wolfe secured second from Smith. The race was slowed with three laps to go for debris on the race track (Hodnett’s header).  It was a single-file restart because it was less than five to go.

Wolfe stayed with Hodnett following the restart, but it was the Williams Grove point leader picking up his first win since the end of March over Wolfe, Smith, Rahmer and Haas. Doug Esh, who helped assist Dietrich from his crashed car, finished sixth.

Alan Krimes, Ott, James McFadden in Kasey Kahne’s sprinter and Brent Marks rounded out the top 10.

Dewease set fast time over the 30-car field with a lap of 16.532 seconds. Smith, Hodnett, Wolfe and Rahmer completed the top five qualifiers.

Dewease, Smith and Hodnett won the heat races. Wolfe won the dash. Bill Balog won the B-main.

In the 358 sprint feature, it was Phil Walter of Beavertown grabbing the race lead from Dave Thrush with nine laps completed.

Walter streaked away from the field and had a 2.5 second lead with two laps remaining when the red flag stopped the race for Eric Parker in turn three. He was okay.

Jordan Givler worked on Walter for the lead as track champion Kevin Nouse made it a three-car race for the win.

Nouse got by Givler in turn one and put a last lap slider on Walter in turns three and four. Walter turned his car back under Nouse and just beat him back to the checkers to get the win for his first ever triumph at the historic oval despite a decades-long career.

Givler, Chandler Leiby and Adrian Shaffer completed the top five. Thrush, Jared Esh, Nyle Berkes, Todd Reed and Brie Hershey rounded out the top 10.

Shaffer, Nouse and Matt Findley won the 358 sprint heat races.

The three-day Champion Racing Oil Williams Grove National Open sanctioned by the World of Outlaws begins Thursday night with a $10,000 to win main event. An identical program will be run Friday night. The 40-lap National Open will pay $50,000 to win on Saturday night.

Danny Dietrich tweeted “it will be a win it or wear it kind of night”  Thursday afternoon in reference to Thursday night’s BAPS Coatings & Supplies 410 Sprint Series  Justin Snyder “Salute to the Troops”  event at Susquehanna Speedway.
And he wasn’t kidding.

While he nearly “wore it” on several occasions during the 30-lap feature event, the Gettysburg driver remained relentless, pounding the top of the speedway and then “won it” when race-long leader Aaron Ott caught a rut on the final on the final lap exiting the second corner.

Ott’s bobble was just what Dietrich needed to blast into the lead and lead the final half lap to become the first repeat winner in BAPS 410 Sprint Series competition this season. It was his eighth career Susquehanna win.

“I was sitting there catching my breath because my arms are just pumping right now,” Dietrich stated in victory lane following the intense high speed battle on the tricky track. “I had a death grip on the steering wheel. I thought I was gonna crash three or four times down there in one and two and lost  a lot of ground and had to catch back up.”

By virtue of his dash win, Ott grabbed the lead at the start followed by Greg Hodnett and Dietrich.

It didn’t take Ott long to catch the rear of the field and was racing in heavy traffic on lap nine when Trey Starks stopped in turn one to bring out the caution.

The race went red on lap 10 when Davey Sammons flipped hard in turn three as Australia’s  Lynton Jeffrey also turned over. Neither driver was injured.

Ott again stormed into the lead but Hodnett was making some challenges before Ott began to open some distance at the halfway mark of the race.

Hodnett and Dietrich battled hard for the runner-up spot in heavy traffic on lap 18 as Hodnett closed on Ott as they continued to race through traffic as the laps clicked off.

Ott maintained a slight lead with five laps to go as Dietrich used a lapped car to make a move for second spot on Hodnett with three laps remaining.

Dietrich closed on Ott and was right on Ott’s bumper when the East Berlin driver caught the turn two rut, just turning his car enough to allow Dietrich to drive by and score the win.

“I wasn’t following him through one and two and I knew the only way would be around the top,” said Dietrich about his last lap plan to win the race. “I thought maybe he’d baby it but then he hit that rut the wrong way and I knew if I could beat him off the corner, we’d be okay.”

Dietrich’s win was worth $5,000 and was the eighth of the season for the Gary Kauffman Racing owned team. The win came in a race dedicated to the memory of Justin Snyder, a huge race fan and retired combat veteran of the U.S. Army, whose life was cut short earlier this year.

Ott settled for the runner-up spot ahead of Hodnett with California driver Tim Kaeding fourth and North Carolina’s Dave Blaney fifth.

Completing the top 10 finishers were Australian invader James McFadden driving for NASCAR driver Kasey Kahne, Lucas Wolfe, Ryan Smith, Brent Marks and Brian Montieth.

Smith earned $500 from the Beer Hill Gang for his fast time in time trials over the 30-car field.

Sprint car heats were won by Kaeding, Wolfe and Hodnett with Starks winning the consolation.

Tyler Esh earned the Hard Charger award after starting 24th and finishing 18th. He took home $500 courtesy of the McSherrystown’s Moose Lodge 720 along with a $400 gift certificate from Brown and Miller Racing Solutions.

East Berlin’s Bob Stough came home with the win in the 20-lap Servicemasters Clean Central PA Legends feature over Mason Chaney, Scott Houdeshell, Travis Perry and Jeff Herbst.

Heats for the 24 Legends were won by Harlon Leppo, Reed Salony and Chad Earnst.

Susquehanna Speedway returns to action this Saturday, September 24 with the return of the Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman joined by the 358 Late Models, Street Stocks and Road Warriors. Pits open at 4pm, Grandstands at 5pm with racing at 7pm.

Nouse Claims Williams Grove 358 Sprint Championship Race, Ryan Smith Wires For First Grove Victory Of Career

Mechanicsburg – Kevin Nouse scored the 358 sprint car championship event at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, taking $2,500 for the lucrative victory, his second of the year at the track and 16th overall of his career.

In the 25-lap 410 sprint car main, it was Ryan Smith who scored for the first time ever in his career at Williams Grove Speedway, leading all 25 circuits to pick up the $3,600 victory.

Jared Esh took the lead from the pole of the 25-lap 358 sprint championship race with Phil Walter and Eric Parker trailing early while Nouse worked from the 12th starting spot.

Parker bolted around Walter for second on the ninth lap and tried to run down the leader as traffic entered the picture but Nouse was quickly on the scene and was up to third with 11 laps completed.

Nouse overtook Parker for the second spot with nine laps to go and then moments later drove into the lead with eight laps left.

Shortly after being scored the leader, the races first caution flag unfurled, giving Esh and Parker new life.

However the restart saw Nouse pull away when action resumed as he did again on a final restart with a lap to go.

After starting 15th, Adrian Shaffer made his way up to fourth before the finish but failed to challenge for a podium finish.

Phil Walter ended the race in fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Tyler Esh, Chandler Leiby, Chris Arnold, Jordan Givler and Brent Shearer.

Heats went to Walter, Nouse and Arnold.

Nouse was the Wee Bee Audio and Video Hard Charger.

Ryan Smith started fourth in the 410 sprint main and made a big move on the initial start to take over the lead on the first lap from TJ Stutts, who started second.

Brent Marks began the race in third and took second on the second lap as Smith held the lead.

Lap after lap, Marks tried to gain on the leader but Smith was flawless on the slick surface, running the middle of the track to perfection.

Smith entered the rear of the field on the ninth lap with Marks in tow but even in traffic Smith was able to maintain his advantage over Marks.

A lone restart on the 12th lap gave Marks a clear shot at the lead but Smith was again flawless through the middle of the first and second turns to pull away on the backchute while Marks slid sideways after trying to pull a flyer for control.

After starting eighth, Alan Krimes took third from Stutts on the 12th lap and got by Marks for second with six laps to go.

Krimes then consistently ran down Smith over the final laps to have in within striking distance amid traffic at the finish, crossing the line .625 seconds behind as runner up.

Marks was third followed by Stutts and Austin Hogue.

Sixth through 10th went to Lucas Wolfe, Cory Haas, Freddie Rahmer, Danny Dietrich and Doug Esh.

Heats went to Brian Montieth, Nicole Bower and Esh with Matt Campbell taking the consolation race.

Dewease started eighth in the stellar sprint car field sanctioned by the All Star Circuit of Champions and took the lead on the 12th circuit when leader Greg Hodnett broke the rear on his machine.

Both drivers were vying to make history by becoming the first ever five-time Tuscarora 50 champion.

A previous Tuscarora 50 winner in 1994 for Walt Dyer, in 2001 for Joe Harz, in 2002 for Al Hamilton and in 2006 for Pete Postupack, Dewease?s fifth win in the event came for his fifth different Tuscarora champion car owner in the form of Don Kreitz Jr., who himself owns three career event wins as a driver.

In the 22-lap econo late model main, Tim Krape of Bellefonte won the final point race of the season while Port Royal?s Devin Hart finished second and scored the 2016 track title by just five points over Krape.

In the sprint car division, Lancaster?s Doug Esh secured the 2016 crown as well, his first at Port Royal Speedway.

Greg Hodnett drew the pole for the start of the 49th annual running of the Tuscarora 50 flanked by TJ Stutts.

And Hodnett took control over third starter Dale Blaney and Sheldon Haudenschild when action began.

The races first caution flag unfurled with eight laps complete and the top three unchanged while Dewease restarted sixth.

And the next four laps found Dewease simply pouring on the power as he darted by the cars in front of him with ease, up to fifth on lap nine and up to third on lap 10.

On the next lap, Dewease blasted by Dale Blaney to be sitting in second and closing on leader Hodnett when Hodnett puffed blue smoke out of his car on the backstretch and coasted to a stop as Dewease drove by as the new leader with 12 away.

But the caution unfurled due to debris from Hodnett?s busted rear end, regrouping the field with 13 laps to go before the mandatory stoppage on lap 25.

The next driver to turn up the wick was 10th starter and Friday night winner Stevie Smith as the Broken Arrow, Oklahoma driver took fifth on the restart.

He got by Cap Henry for fourth on the 14th tour and then worked on Haudenschild and Blaney during the final stages of the first half to muscle into second, far behind Dewease with five laps to go until the break.

Blaney, Haudenschild and Henry chased the lead duo on the restart.

Henry surprised many by racing with Blaney for third when action resumed but all eyes were on Smith as he attempted to pass Dewease for the lead.

For the first several laps after the restart, Smith stayed within striking distance as Dewease struggled to navigate the first and second turns but turns three and four were his savior as his mount traversed the low side of those turns perfectly, allowing him to make up the ground he lost to Smith at the other end of the track on every circuit.

A final caution with 19 laps to go for a flat right rear tire on Aaron Ott?s racer set up a final restart with 13th starter Lucas Wolfe now up to fifth.

Again Smith stayed close to Dewease for the next several laps but after numerous back to back laps, Dewease?s advantage to grow and grow as he checked out over the final 15 laps to record the victory by nearly eight seconds over the rest of the field.

Dale Blaney rode home third followed by an impressive run by Cap Henry and Danny Dietrich, who started the race ninth.

Sixth through 10th went to Wolfe, Haudenschild, defending event winner Brent Marks, Blane Heimbach and Chad Kemenah.

Heats for the 41 cars went to Heimbach, Blaney, Haudenschild and Stutts with Mike Wagner scoring the B Main.

Fast time was set by Danny Dietrich with a lap of 16.479 seconds.

Dewease took home $12, 975 for the victory including lap money.

?This feels great. It?s an honor to do it for these guys,? Dewease said on the Port Royal Speedway victory lane stage.

 ?I think I may have won this race with five different car owners, too, so that makes it pretty special. I wanted this one so bad all year for these guys. We?ve been really good everywhere we?ve went. We had a really good racecar last night, but had some mechanical problems that were nobody?s fault. I?m having a lot of fun driving for this race team. We are all really enjoying this limited schedule. We savor every one of these things.?

 ?That first 25 laps, I didn?t run that hard,? Dewease explained.

?I knew we could go pretty soft on tires because I?m not that hard on tires. We came in during that red and my guys said my tires were still really good. So, I knew I could get going then. I just wanted to get inside the top-four before the break. I just found a line and was able to reel those guys in. You have to be there in the end in this deal. That?s what it?s all about. ?

Hart started second in the 22-lap econo late model main to record the title and he finished there with Krape taking the win.

Andrew Yoder rode home third followed by Harold Ranck Jr., and Ryan Walls.

Twin heats went to Krape and Hart.

SHEARER WNS CAREER FIRST, LEIBY CLAIMS TRACK TITLE IN LINCOLN “358” SPRINTS, Cam Zeigler dominates 358 late models; Hanson wins for the second time this season in PASS/IMCA sprints

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 9/10/2016 – The youth movement continued in the final points race of the season for “”358” sprint cars at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

Rookie Brent Shearer of Manheim became the sixth different first-time winner in the 20-lap feature event.   Shearer, who came from 19th to fourth a week ago, started fourth and finished the job this week, holding off two-time track champ Jeff Rohrbaugh at the end.

It was not without drama, as front row starter Tyler Walton grabbed the lead from polesitter Ashley Cappetta and led the first 14 laps.  Shearer took the lead from Walton at the line to complete lap 15, and Walton drove up over Shearer’s right rear entering turn one.  Walton flipped, and Shearer drove out of a 360 spin and never stopped, giving him the lead for the restart with five laps to go.

The final five laps saw eighth-starting Rohrbaugh charge into the runner-up spot, but he could never catch Shearer.

Rohrbaugh settled for second, with 10th-starting Jeff Halligan third, 11th-starting Matt Campbell fourth, and Matt Findley fifth.  Completing the top ten were Adrian Shaffer, Chris Arnold, Chandler Leiby, Cody Fletcher, and C.J. Tracey.

Leiby’s eight-place finish clinched the 2016 Keiser Aluminum Wheels 358 sprint car championship for the Carlisle teenager who just graduated from high school a few months ago.  Campbell finished second in season points for the second straight year, with Shaffer a close third.  Both drivers entered the evening trailing Leiby by just 55 points.

Heats for the 30 358 Sprints were won by Halligan, Arnold, and Campbell, with Mike Bittinger winning the consolation.

Cam Zeigler took advantage of a crash involving the front row at the outset, and drove the Walls family #98W away to a 5.87-second win over Brad Shank in the 20-lap “358” late model feature event.

Front row starters Travis Mease and Randy Stoudt smacked together in turn two of lap one, ending both of their nights.  Precise Racing Products point series leader Sam Gallagher drove into the pits during the caution to change a flat tire, but then dropped out later in the event.

Zeigler and Shank assumed the front row for the complete restart, and ran first and second the entire way.
Third through fifth were Shaun Jones, Jake Jones, and Randy Christine, Jr., who came from 12th starting spot.

Heats for the 20 358 Late Models were won by Shank and Zeigler.

Jeremi Hanson started on the pole and led all 20 non-stop laps for his second consecutive Lincoln win in the PASS/IMCA 305 sprint car feature.  His 20-lap time was 5:42.18, good enough to hold off a closing 11th-starting John Barnett at the finish.  Third through fifth were Tyler Reeser, Colby Dice, and Rick Stief.

Heats for the 29 PASS/IMCA (305) Sprints were won by Drew Ritchey, Reeser, and Ron Aurand, with Kyle Ganoe winning the consolation.

Next Saturday night, September 17th, at 7:30 PM, Lincoln Speedway will host the first-ever LAWRENCE CHEVROLET SPORTSMAN KEYSTONE 50 for the Super Sportsman. Rounding out the show will be the Central PA Legends and Street Stocks. Gates will open at 5:30 PM.

HANOVER, PA (9/9/2016) – After two unsuccessful attempts to start the race, Abbottstown’s Mike Bittinger outran polesitter Wyatt Hinkle to the first turn and led every lap of the non-stop 25-lap feature for 358 sprint cars at Trail-Way Speedway Friday night.

“I’m an old man,” said Bittinger upon exiting his Apple Automotive/Boulder Pools #12 in victory lane, “They really made me feel old in the heat and knocked me all around.”

“Starting position helped tonight,” added Bittinger, “I’ve been down on myself that past few months, and tonight was a great way to end the year.  I started paying attention to the scoreboard there toward the end.  I wasn’t going full-bore until the 77 stuck his nose under me, and decided I’d step it up and give it everything I had.”

Bittinger’s second win of the year came one week after picking up the hard luck bonus in the Lincoln/Trail-Way two night “Shootout.”  The non-stop 25-lap time was six minutes, 10.06 seconds.  

David Holbrook’s second-place finish was good enough to lock up the 2016 Trail-Way track title.

“We came up short tonight, and that was driver error,” said Holbrook during a brief interview in victory lane, “I want to thank (car owner) Mike Parris and the crew for a great job this season.  We’ll be back next year and be better than ever.”

Holbrook started third and drove around Hinkle for the runner-up spot on lap 14.  Fourth-starting caught Hinkle for third on lap 14 and finished there, with TW rookie of-the-year Tyler Walton and Hinkle rounding out the top five.
Sixth through ninth were Zach Euculano, Dave Thrush, Cody Fletcher, and hard charger Shane Yost, who started 14th.  Dan Richcreek was a DNF but credited with tenth.

One of the two unsuccessful attempts to start the race was marred by a five-car crash that involved heat winners Cody Fletcher and Dwight Leppo, Seth Kearchner, Randy Whisler, and Brody Treaster.  The cars of Kearchner and Leppo flipped, and both driver were uninjured but done for the night.  The other three were able to continue.

2015 track champ Cory Myers raced to his first win of the year in the 20-lap Mason-Dixon 270cc  micro-sprint feature. He held of the race-long challenges of Bill Laughman for the win, with Chad Myers, Brian Marriott, and Jim Still rounding out the top five.

Chad’s third-place finish secured the 2016 track title.

Heats for the 21 micros were won by the Myers brothers and Steven Cox.

Mike Goodwin claimed the 2016 TW street stock title with his third win of the year in the 20-lap street stock feature.  Travis Leh, Jeremy Stremmel, Marshall McMullen, and Zach Myers rounded out the top five.

Stremmel and McMullen finished in a dead tie for second in the season point series, seven points behind Goodwin.
Heats for the 12 street stocks were won by Dalton Myers and Goodwin.

The limited stock feature was wiped out by rain, with Justin Wagaman claiming the season point title by 15 points over Robbie Carroll.

Qualifiers for the 18 limited stocks were won by rookie of-the-year Charles Millender and Matt Chronister.
Drivers from the limited stock division were paid for the night based on their heat race finishes.

Tomorrow, Saturday, September 10th, Trail-Way hosts the final AMA Motorcycle Flat Track races of the 2016 season. Gates open at 3:00 p.m., with racing scheduled to begin at 6:00 p.m.

Bandit Smith Steals Port Royal All Star Night Before The 50 Jeremy Miller wins Moon Shine Camo Series finale, Jeff Rine Claims Series Title

PORT ROYAL, Pa. ? Stevie Smith took advantage of the chances he was given on Friday night to score victory in the All Star Circuit of Champions Night Before the Tuscarora 50 at Port Royal Speedway, taking $5,000 for the win, his third in the history of the event.

Smith previously took wins in The Night Before the 50 in 2010 and in 2014.

In the 25-lap Rt. 35 Moon Shine Camo Dirt Late Model Challenge Series finale, Jeremy Miller of Gettysburg scored the $2,000 payday while Danville?s Jeff Rine walked away with the inaugural series championship title and Hamburg?s Andy Haus wrapped up the 2016 Port Royal track title.

Greg Hodnett earned the pole for the 30-lap Night Before the 50 feature event and took the lead on the first lap over Brock Zearfoss an sixth starter Lance Dewease.

Dewease drove by Zearfoss on the third lap, showing strength early as Hodnett began running down the rear of the field.

The leader entered the backmarkers on the seventh circuit and at the same time Dewease had caught him for control.

Running the low side of the speedway, Dewease drove into the lead on the ninth lap and began jetting away, leaving the rest of the field to scrap for second.

And then just as suddenly as he took control and was already out to a near one second advantage, he slowed to a stop on the backchute with 20 laps to go, handing control back to Hodnett with third starter Stevie Smith now in second.

Hodnett was only able to hold Smith off for one lap after action resumed as the Oklahoma driver blasted the top to take control on the backstretch on the 12th circuit.

Smith then was able to creep just far enough ahead to keep Hodnett from making any bids for control however he failed to drive away from the field.

With six laps to go, the pace was slowed when Danny Holtgraver and Brent Marks connected in the first corner however the final restart failed to produce a contest for the lead as Smith again kept Hodnett just far enough behind to prevent a stab for the lead.

Seventh starter Lucas Wolfe ended a race long battle with Dale Blaney for third with the spot, followed by Blaney and Danny Dietrich.

Sixth through 10th went to Dave Blaney, Zearfoss, Aaron Ott, Sheldon Haudenschild and Doug Esh.

Heats went to Haudenschild, Wolfe, Zearfoss and Dave Blaney.  Hodnett won the dash and Mike Wagner took the B Main.

Wolfe set fast time over the 41-car field with a lap of 16.202 seconds.

Trent Brenneman started second in the 25-lap late model main and drove into control when the green flag unfurled, chased early by Hayes Mattern.

Fourth starter Kyle Hardy took the second spot away on the sixth lap and began to challenge Brenneman for control with eight laps in the book.

Hardy was able to get alongside Brenneman and nose into the lead at times using the outside lane but a smooth Brenneman on the low side maintained his composure to thwart the bids and indeed drive out to a lead of over two seconds as Jeremy Miller took second from Hardy with 10 laps to go.

But Brenneman?s 2.3-second lead was erased with seven laps to go thanks to a final caution flag and that?s when Miller took his shot.

Using the outside lane, Miller applied heavy pressure for control when action resumed and he made it back to the stripe to be scored the leader with six laps to go.

Brenneman attempted a comeback for the win but Miller was too tough to be caught, taking his second career victory at the oval.

Brenneman was second followed by Jeff Miller, Matt Cosner and Mike Lupfer.

Sixth through 10th went to Hayes Mattern, Rick Singleton, Jeff Rine, Andy Haus and Tim Smith Jr.

Heats for the 33 cars went to Haus, Justin Kann, Rine and Cosner. Singleton took the consolation race.

Andy Haus scored the track title with his run while also finishing second in the Moon Shine Camo Dirt Late Model Challenge Series.

Jeff Rine took home the inaugural series title over Haus with Lupfer finishing third in the standings followed by Mattern, Andrew Yoder, Chad Hollenbeck, Danny Snyder, Dave Brouse Jr., Coleby Frye and Tim Wilson.

Danny Dietrich Scores Second Port Royal Labor Day Classic Peer and Stough win supports

PORT ROYAL, Pa. ? Danny Dietrich of Gettysburg won the 65th annual Labor Day Classic for sprint cars on Monday afternoon at Port Royal Speedway, taking his second victory in the oval event after taking his first in 2014.

Ironically, both wins came aboard a replica Weikert?s Livestock No. 29 sprint car are his only career victories at the track.

Monday?s win was worth $4,000.

Elsewhere, Ryan Peer won the 15-lap four cylinder main event while Bob Stough took the Central Pa Legends feature.

Port Royal driver Dylan Cisney had the pole for the 25-lap Labor Day Classic for sprints and took the lead on the first lap ahead of Dietrich and defending event winner Brent Marks.

Marks got by Dietrich for second on the second tour and quickly ran down Cisney to make a pass for the lead with four away.

Once in front, Marks began driving away from the field, jetting around the first and second turns using a narrowing topside moisture strip that got a bit too narrow on the 10th tour when he hopped up over it and slammed the outside turn two wall.

That misfortune sidelined him for the rest of the event and handed the lead to Dietrich with Cisney now second and ninth starter Greg Hodnett up to third.

Hodnett got around Cisney for second with 11 laps to go but had to run down Dietrich who had built up over a straightaway lead by that point.

But steadily Hodnett did cut away the advantage to be caught up with the leader with a lap to go.

However a final lap clash never materialized as Dietrich stayed just far enough out of reach to prevent a last ditch, final turn effort by Hodnett to steal the win.

The victory was Dietrich?s seventh overall this season in area action.

Point leader Doug Esh, who started 12th ended up a challenging third followed by Ryan Smith and Brock Zearfoss.

Sixth through 10th went to Lucas Wolfe, Aaron Ott, Cisney, TJ Stutts and Joey Hershey.

Heats went to Marks, Dietrich and Smith.

Some 38 four cylinder pure stocks entered competition and 36 of them started the 15-lap feature with Ryan Peer, who started 37th, taking the lead with four laps to go to seal the win.

Second went to Chris Anderson followed by Tom Brady, Justin Williamson and Darren Howsare.

Heats went to Robert Wellman, Anderson and Jeff Foster.

Bob Stough won the legends feature over Harold Leppo and Chad Earnst.

Demolition derby wins went to Alex Keaton and John Miller.

Jason Shultz Wins Duel With Tomocek For 360 Sprint Season Fianle'

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – The 360 sprint cars, super late models, pro stocks, and roadrunners returned to Selinsgrove Speedway Saturday night to complete the Aug. 27 features that were postponed due to a power outage that affected area communities and the speedway.

The features completed the regular points racing season at the Snyder County oval for 2016 with Mark Smith of Sunbury clinching the 360 sprint car title, Jeff Rine of Danville the super late model championship, Brad Mitch of McClure winning the pro stock division crown, and Keith Bissinger of Orangeville wrapping up the roadrunner title.

Jason Shultz of Carlisle and Hayes Mattern of Beavertown were first-time winners this season at the track in the 25-lap 360 sprint car and super late model main events, respectively. Tommy Slanker and AJ Hoffman of Richfield split the wins in the 15-lap pro stock races, while Keith Bissinger closed out the roadrunner racing season with a victory in the 12-lap main event.

Selinsgrove Speedway will be right back in action Sunday night over the Labor Day holiday (Sept. 4)  with the Craftsman World of Outlaw Late Model series in the Jeff's Auto Body and Recycling Center Late Model National Open. The track’s crown jewel event for the super Late Models will pay $8,000 to win and run 40 laps. The Limited Late Models will also be on the night’s racing card. Darrell Lanigan is the defending winner of the event and will look to extend his three-race winning streak in the Open.

Track gates open at 4p.m. for the Sept. 4 race. Adult admission to the grandstands will be $30, students (12-17) $10, and 11 and under are free. Pit Passes will be $40.

The 2016 season will close out Saturday, Sept. 17, with the Jim Nace  Memorial 34th Annual National Open for the 410 Sprint Cars. The Late Models will join the 410 Sprinters in the season finale at 7p.m.

The Selinsgrove Speedway season awards banquet will be held November 5 at the Genetti Hotel in Williamsport. Tickets will go on sale in September.

Colby Womer jumped into the race lead at the drop of the green flag in the 25-lap Newville Family of Companies 360 Sprint Car main event while Jason Shultz charged from his eighth starting spot. Eric Tomecek was quickly into second and Shultz had moved to third on lap four. Tomecek and Shutlz made up a lot of ground on Womer as they approached lap traffic.
Tomecek was the first to go by Womer followed quickly by Shultz, who on the next lap, would go by Tomecek to secure the top spot. A red flag on lap 18 was the first time the race lost green flag status as Ryan Kissinger flipped. He escaped injury.

With the field bunched up for the restart, Tomecek used the restart to challenge Shultz a few times, but never more than in turns 3&4 on the final lap. Shultz got the run he needed to drive away to pick up his first win at the track in over two years. The checkered flag came over Tomecek, Derek Locke, Colby Womer, and Mike Walter.  Michael Walter II recovered from an early race flat tire to finish in sixth. He raced across the line ahead of Eric Parker, Larry Kelleher, Darren Schott, and Charlie Anderson. Heat race wins on Aug. 27 went to Womer and  Walter.

The Jeff's Auto Body and Recycling Center Super Late Model feature race was the last chance for teams to tune up leading into the Sunday’s World of Outlaw race. Hayes Mattern looked to kick the monkey off his back and take his first win of the season. Mattern jumped to the race lead from his front row starting spot. Bryan Bernheisel quickly looked to be the car to beat as he raced into the second position from his seventh starting spot. By lap 20 Bernheisel had pulled to the rear bumper of Mattern's number 9.

Soon the race for the lead was into lap traffic and Bernheisel really put the pressure on Mattern. With two to go Mattern made a bold move around two lap cars that left a gap between he and Bernheisel. Bernheisel was not done yet. He closed the lead up enough that in the final corner he could pull even with Mattern coming to the checkered flag. The two made contact out of turn four as the drag race to the finish began. Mattern held on by just .025 seconds for the win.
Bernheisel earned a hard fought second place. Tony Adams closed out the podium finishers ahead of Jeff Rine and Steve Campbell. Matt Cochran, Luke Hoffner, Jim Yoder, Dave Zona, and Save Stamm made up the rest of the top ten finishers. Bernheisel and Cochran were the heat race winners on Aug. 27.

When the green flag came out in the A&A Auto Stores Pro Stock main event, Brad Mitch locked up the 2016 Pro Stock points' championship. Mitch looked to end the championship bid with a victory when he took the race lead away from Brandon Moser on lap 5. Tommy Slanker had other ideas of how the season would end. Slanker used an inside line to go by Mitch on a lap 11 restart and opened up a lead. A yellow flag came out again on laps 14 setting up a one lap shootout for the win.
Slanker showed the way into turn three when Mitch threw a big slide job going for the win. Slanker was able to make the move back into the race lead to grab his second win of the season. Moser was actually able to sneak under Mitch for second while Mitch settled for the third spot. AJ Hoffman and Curtis Lawton were the rest of the drivers in the top five. Nate Herman finished sixth followed by Shaun Lawton, Lori Croop, Matt Wilson, and John Troxell. Hoffman and Stroup were winners in the heat races.

Keith Bissinger has claimed all but three wins this year in the A&A  Auto Stores Roadrunners. Saturday night he hoped to celebrate his championship run with a victory. Bissinger led much of the feature event, but a late race yellow gave runner up Brian Johnson a chance to grab the race lead away. Bissinger admitted he was running lower on the speedway thinking the inside was faster, but Johnson was making the outside line work. Johnson pulled even with Bissinger going into
turn one of the final lap and then crossed over the race leader coming to the checkered flag. At the flag stand the drag race finish went in favor of Bissinger. Johnson was second ahead of early race leader Will Brunson. Tom Underwood and Smith cope were fourth and fifth. Butch Shaffer, Cory Collier, Dustin Snook, Miranada Minium, and Jim Collier rounded out the top ten finishers.

In the night cap the Pro Stocks returned to complete a feature event from July 3rd. AJ Hoffman took the race lead early and dominated the 15 lap feature. The win moved him into sole possession of the number one slot of the Pro Stock win list. The win was Hoffman's 46th career victory. Matt Wilson followed him across the line along with Nate Stroup, Peanut Heintzelman, and Bill Conrad.

MECHANICSBURG, PA –  Stevie Smith doesn’t visit Williams Grove Speedway too often for regular handicap shows, but he was in the field Sunday night for the Billy Kimmel Memorial and he made the most of it by picking up the $4,300 win in Fred Rahmer’s No. 51.

“It has been tough this year,” said Smith. “We just haven’t been able to get out here (victory lane). It feels good to get back to victory lane. Fred is a great car owner. It’s nice to be a part of this.”
Rodney Westhafer –who had his sprinter painted like the Kimmel No. 47 – started on the pole and drove into the lead to start the 25-lap main event over Cory Haas, who slid to second starting spot after Eric Tomecek failed to start.

Westhafer reached lapped traffic with seven laps completed and a 1.198 second lead. He slipped a little on the cushion in turn two allowing Haas to close.

Westhafer and Haas would get by the lapped car and Haas challenged for the lead once again.
Smith was originally scheduled to start eighth, but moved up to sixth. He’d take third from Ryan Smith just before the first caution flag of the event on lap 11 for a slowing Austin Burke in turn four.
Westhafer pulled away as Smith worked Haas for second. An inside move off turn two got Smith the spot on lap 13. He was 1.701 seconds behind.

He slowly gained on the leader, but when Westhafer tried to duck low on a lapped car, Smith closed dramatically.

Westhafer went low off turn two to lap Nicole Bower as Smith worked the top groove. The next time through the turns, Smith went low and drove by off the corner to take the lead with three laps to go.
“When you’re running second or third, you just go the opposite direction or take a chance, but when you’re leading you’re trying to hold onto the lead and sometimes that’s a disadvantage,” said Smith. “The caution came out and bunched us first three up. I had just passed two in the same corner. It was a good night tonight.”

Westhafer tried to get under a lapped car in turn three and lost control spinning across the track collecting fourth running Ryan Smith and fifth running Brock Zearfoss with three laps to go. Nobody was hurt.

Smith controlled the restart although Haas stayed with him. As they headed for the checkers, the yellow flag flew instead for Zearfoss who spun in turn two.

An uneventful final lap saw Smith take the win over Haas, Hodnett, Lincoln track champion Alan Krimes and Doug Esh. Lucas Wolfe, Brian Montieth, Danny Dietrich, Freddie Rahmer and Tim Glatfelter rounded out the top 10.

Dietrich, Hodnett and Montieth won the sprint car heats.

In the companion 20-lap super sportsman feature, it was Kenny Edkin starting on the pole grabbing the early race lead. Nine time track champion Frankie Herr moved into second with 10 laps to go. Herr would pass Edkin on the frontstretch with six laps to go. He would go on to pick up his 28th career super sportsman win at the Grove.

Edkin, Scott Dellinger, Scott Geesey and Jay Fannasy completed the top five. Paul Miller, Russ Mitten, Rich Eichelberger, Davey Walsh and Steve Fannasy rounded out the top 10.
Herr, Dellinger and Geesey won the super sportsman heats.

ALAN KRIMES WINS FEATURE, CLAIMS SECOND TRACK TITLE AT LINCOLN SPEEDWAY Chandler Leiby keeps points lead with first win of the year in “358” sprints; Dellinger dominates super sportsman

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 9/3/2016 – Denver’s Alan Krimes added an exclamation point to his second track title in three years by claiming the 25-lap “410” sprint car feature win at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

And he did it in dramatic fashion, coming from 11th starting spot through a stacked field to take the lead from Brandon Rahmer with two laps to go.

Polesitter Matt Boland led the first 13 laps from the pole before fifth-starting Brandon Rahmer took the lead on a 14th-lap restart. Meanwhile, Krimes was methodically working through the field and was running fourth at the time. He moved past Boland into the runner-up spot on lap 17.

“We got going real good there on the bottom at one point in the race, and it seemed like we picked off a bunch of them,” said Krimes in victory lane, “Then we had that yellow and I restarted fourth, and I thought with those guys running the top I should go to the bottom and drive through there. But on the bottom for the restart I was junk. Then another yellow came out and I rolled the wing back a little bit. Then the car was pretty good around the bottom and I got into second.”

“I was gaining on Brandon a little bit and I was trying to watch the scoreboard because I knew the laps were winding down,” continued Krimes, “I thought I might get one shot at him. When we came up on the lapped car I think Brandon got up over the cushion or something and I was able to slip between him and the lapped car coming off turn four. It’s not a move you can pull off very often, but that was all it took.”

Once in front, Krimes took the checkered two laps later by 1.25 seconds over Rahmer, with 10th-starting Brian Montieth, Austin Hogue, and Gerard McIntyre, Jr. completing the top five. Sixth through tenth were Jim Siegel, Kyle Moody, 14th-starting Cory Haas, Freddie Rahmer, and Tim Wagaman.

Heats for the 25 410 Sprints were won by Glenndon Forsythe, Billy Dietrich, and Montieth.

Chandler Leiby, involved in a tight season points battle with Matt Campbell and Adrian Shaffer, picked up a much-needed first win of the season in the 20-lap “358” sprint car feature.

Leiby started fifth after polesitter Kyle Abrahims came to a stop during one of four attempts to start the race, and took the lead from Matt Findley (who ended up on the pole) on lap seven. He fought off repeated challenges from Kyle Denmyer, who actually led laps 13 ad 14 before Leiby moved back in front.

Denmyer settled for second, with Findley, 19th-starting Brent Shearer, and Shaffer crossing third through fifth.

Doug Hammaker plowed into the third-turn wall while running fourth on lap 13. He was taken to Hershey Medical Center by his family after complaining of a headache, dilated pupils, and general disorientation after the crash, which collected sixth-place Matt Campbell. Campbell came from the back over the final eight laps to cross eighth behind Dalton Dietrich and Phil Walter, remaining alive in the points battle with one points race to go.

Heats for the 31 358 Sprints were won by Findley, Hammaker, and Shaffer, with Shearer winning the consolation.

Scott Dellinger picked up his fourth career Lincoln win in the 25-lap super sportsman feature. He started on the outside of the front row and followed polesitter Russ Mitten for the first laps before making the race-winning pass. He dominated the rest of the way, crossing 1.53 seconds ahead of Mitten at the end. Third through fifth were Doug Dodson, Steve Wilbur, and Kenny Edkin.

Chad Criswell was uninjured in a spectacular end-over-end flip on the backstretch of lap five. That multi-car crash also ended the night for Rich Eichelberger and Jay Fannasy. Fannasy lost a wheel, which Criswell hopped over, leading to the flip.

Heats for the 21 Super Sportsman were won by Fannasy, Dellinger, and Davey Walsh.

Next Saturday night, September 10th, at 7 PM, Lincoln Speedway will host ARCH NIGHT featuring the the 358 Sprints, which will race in their final Keizer Aluminum Wheels points race in the season-long battle for the 2016 track title. Rounding out the evening’s 3-division show will be the 358 Late Models & PASS/IMCA (305) Sprints. Gates will open at 5 PM, with heats set to get underway at 7 PM.

Greg Hodnett claims seventh oval sprints win Satterlee Thrills For Port Royal UFO Butch Renninger Late Model Memorial Win Barbara and Frye provide sparks at the front , Ranck scores second econo late win Pete Leister wins and scores xtreme stock track title


PORT ROYAL, Pa. ? Gregg Satterlee of Rochester Mills became the first repeat winner of the prestigious Butch Renninger Memorial at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night, taking home $4,290 (including lap money) for his 33-lap run in the UFO Late Model-sanctioned event.

Satterlee put on a sterling performance over the 38 cars in competition, fighting it out with Keith Barbara  and Coelby Frye for the victory, which was also the second of the season for him at the speedway.

In the 25-lap 410 sprint car main, Greg Hodnett of Spring Grove claimed his seventh oval win of the season, using the bottom groove to perfection to get by Aaron Ott for the win.

The econo late model main went to Harold Ranck Jr. for his second checkers of the season while Pete Leister of Port Royal fulfilled a lifelong dream of becoming an oval titlist by wrapping up the xtreme stock championship with a win.

Satterlee started on the pole of the 33-lap Butch Renninger Memorial and was chased early by Nick Dickson.

The smooth running Satterlee entered the rear of the field with 10 laps down and by lap 12 found seventh starter Keith Barbara of South Park up to second and running down his advantage.

But Barbara?s job was made easier on the 15th tour when the races first caution flag unfurled for Mason Zeigler.

Satterlee chose the inside lane for the restart and had Barbara in his shadow when action resumed and when the leader missed his entrance on the low side in the first corner on the 22nd lap, Barbara throttled into the lead on the backstretch.

But that move only served to put Satterlee?s elbows up as it forced him higher around the speedway in the ensuing laps, with Coleby Frye up to third from eighth starting spot.

Barbara held command until the 25th circuit when Satterlee used an outside run off of the second corner to blast across the track on the backstretch and bolt to Barbara?s extreme inside as the pair rushed into the third corner.

Satterlee had no choice but to then blast up across the track in the third turn, hoping to catch the car on the cushion and be able to point it down the front stretch, which he did.

Barbara was still running second with Frye a challenging third with four laps to go when the races final caution flag unfurled and Satterlee chose the inside lane for the restart.

When action resumed, sparks flew, literally, when Frye got to Barbara?s inside as the pair crossed underneath the green flag.

A hard hit between the two found each of them leaning on one another for the hotly-contested spot as they raced hooked together in the first corner with Barbara and Frye driving up across the track only to see Barbara slam the outside wall and come to a stop as Frye got away from any accident.

This set up another restart now with Frye to Satterlee?s outside and Frye drove into the lead on the backstretch using his outside momentum.

But Satterlee was not to be outdone nor denied as he put a massive flyer on Frye in the third corner to regain control and bring the fans to their feet as he raced back down the frontstretch, still the leader.

From that point on he pulled away to the win to take the checkers by 1.918 seconds over Frye, 16th starter Dylan Yoder, Chad Hollenbeck and Dan Stone.

Sixth through 10th went to Kenny Moreland, Trent Brenneman, Jeremy Miller, Mike Lupfer and Tim Smith Jr.

Heats went to Lupfer, Zeigler, Barbara and Waylon Wagner with twin consolations going to Brenneman and Andy Haus.

Lupfer set at new 10-lap track record in his head with a time of 3:08.316.

Rick Lafferty led the first four laps of the sprint car main before fourth starter Aaron Ott took over at the front.

Ott was in control over Lafferty, Lucas Wolfe and Greg Hodnett on the eighth tour when TJ Stutts spun, causing a caution flag period.

That running order remained the same until the 11th lap when Hodnett began coming on to get by Wolfe for third and then Lafferty for second on lap 13.

It took Hodnett only two more laps to run down leader Ott and easily drive into the lead using the smooth bottom lane.

He then pulled away to a 4.283 second win over sixth starter Danny Dietrich who was gaining speed with every lap.

Ott finished third followed by Wolfe and Dylan Cisney.

Sixth through 10th went to Brock Zearfoss, Lafferty, Doug Esh, Curt Stroup and Blane Heimbach.

Heats went to Cisney, Hodnett and Ott.

The econo late model main saw Harold Ranck Jr. wire the field for the victory with the race within the race finding Devin Hart riding home third to reclaim the point lead in the chase for the track title with just one race to go.

Hart now leads the chase by 20 points over Tim Krape.

Todd Snook was second in the feature followed by Hart, Eric Irvin and Trent Brenneman, who raced in both the super late and econo late model divisions on the night.

Heats went to Irvin and Ranck.

Pete Leister started seventh in the 15-lap xtreme stock feature and took the lead from Ryan Zook with four laps to go.

Leister went on to win and claim the 2016 xtreme stock track title.

Mike Goodwin, Kevin Imes and Bill Powell rounded out the top five.
