Phil Walter sixth winner in six races in 358 sprints; Lucas Montgomery best of 38 Central PA Legends

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA – May 27, 2017 – “Spank” no more for Freddie Rahmer at Lincoln Speedway.

Rahmer has built up a solid points lead at Williams Grove Speedway, but has had his problems at Lincoln this season.

“We’ve been good since last Wednesday, when we changed one or two things, and it looks like I can race out here,” said Rahmer upon exiting his Leffler Energy/Miller Brothers Chevrolet #51 in victory lane, “This whole year out here I’ve been a spank. I thing we have something now.”

“Tonight’s one night, but it’s definitely a confidence builder for me, said Rahmer, “That was a tricky race track tonight. The curb was chunky and there were so many lapped cars. I wasn’t falling out of the seat, but it was getting all l could do, I’ll tell you that.”

Rahmer started inside his brother on row two and held his own while polesitter Tim Wagaman led the first nine laps. Rahmer drove around both Jay Galloway and Wagaman to take the race lead in turns one and two of lap 10 and led the rest of the way, many times in heavy lapped traffic.

Wagaman broke and spun in turn three of lap 25, the only caution of the event. That put eighth-starting Cory Haas and Chad Trout on his back bumper for the restart, with Chase Dietz and 13th-starting Brian Montieth in fourth and fifth.
Rahmer, however, had little trouble with a clear track ahead, and crossed under the checkered with a sizeable lead for his first Lincoln win of the year.

Haas, Dietz, Trout, and Montieth rounded out the top five, with Robbie Kendall, Galloway, 14th-starting Tyler Ross, Billy Dietrich, and Gerard McIntyre, Jr. completing the top ten.

Heats for the 23 “410” Sprints were won by Haas, Kendall, and Trout.

McClure’s Phil Walter dominated the 20-lap “358” sprint car feature, starting on the outside pole and leading every lap for his second career Lincoln 358 win.

Polesitter Trey Hivner chased Walter for the first 14 laps before seventh-starting Todd Gracey took over the runner-up spot. Hivner crossed third, followed by Dalton Dietrich (who ran in the top five the entire race) and Matt Findley.

Sixth through tenth were Steve Wilbur, 18th-starting Doug Hammaker, Chandler Leiby, Jeff Halligan, and Troy Wagaman, Jr.

Heats for the 29 “358” Sprints were won by Findley, Adrian Shaffer, and Hivner, with Chris Frank winning the consolation.

York’s Lucas Montgomery raced to his seventh career Lincoln win the first appearance of the season for the Central PA Legends. Montgomery started fifth and was in the midst of a multi-car battle for the race lead the entire event.

He finally wrestled the lead from Scott Haudeshell on lap nine, two laps after leader Scott Smith spun exiting turn four.

Travis Perry came from seventh starting spot to challenge Montgomery on a last lap restart following a red flag for a flipping Rick Hartwig in a four-car crash on turns three and four, but wasn’t able to make the pass and settled for second. Third through fifth were Harlon Leppo, Hayden Pascoe, and Haudeshell.

Heats for the 39 Central PA Legends were won by Leppo, Perry, Jason Gastley, and Montgomery, with Alex Schmidel and Donnie Leiby winning the twin consolations.

Next Saturday night, June 3rd, at 7:30 PM it will be John H. Myers Night and ARCH Night featuring the 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints, and 358 Late Models. Gates will open at 5:30 PM, with racing action getting underway at 7:30 PM.
