MILL HALL, PA – Andrew Yoder and Brandon Moser were victorious again in the Limited Late Model and Pro Stock divisions respectively, at the Clinton County Speedway on Friday night. “We really like racing here,” said Yoder in victory lane. Mike “Smith gave us a really good clean race and I didn’t know if I would be able to get around him or not.” Moser is another driver who knows his way around Clinton County and picked up another Pro Stock victory. Mac Wert won his career first 270 Micro A-Main. In 600 Micro completion, Dexter Strawser won the make-up event while Timmy Bittner won the regular feature. Justin Williamson won the four cylinder event and Chelsie Harris won the four cylinder junior division.
Nick Loffredo and Jeremy Ohl started on the front row of the 25 lap event. Ohl led the opening laps of the event with fourth place starter Andrew Yoder in pursuit. An accident on lap number six brought out the caution flag. While under caution, Ohl and Yoder both went to the pits and were able to rejoin at the rear of the field. Mike Smith inherited the lead for the lap seven restart. Smith held onto the top spot with Loffredo, Jakob Piper, Denny Founey and Tim Luben in the top five.
While running second Loffredo brought out the caution on lap number eight, as Yoder began to make his charge back up through the field. Smith again executed a flawless restart while Piper ran in a close second place. By the halfway point, Smith was leading Piper, Yoder, Luben and Kaiden Bard. On lap number 14, Yoder moved into second, then battled Smith for the lead. Two circuits later, Yoder made the winning pass. A caution with four laps remaining, gave Piper the opportunity to wrestle the runner up position away from Smith, who finished third followed by Loffredo and Fourney. Sixth through tenth were Len Stroud, Tim Luben, Kaiden Bard, Ronnie Laubcher and Joe Loffredo. Heat races were won by Piper and Ohl.
AJ Hoffman started on the outside of the front row and out-dueled Kevin VanAmburg for the lead of the Pro Stock feature event. Hoffman received challenges from AY Schilling and Noah Jensen as the front runners. By lap number 5, sixth place starter Brandon Moser added his car into the mix. Moser passed Jensen then Schilling by the midway point of the race. Hoffman continued to lead until lap number 12 when Moser made his pass for the lead. Hoffman battled Jensen for second, Hoffman bobbled on the final lap, allowing Jensen to claim second and Corey Long to get third. Hoffman settled for fourth and VanAmburg was fifth. Sixth through tenth were Robert Tressler, Rooster Peters, Schilling, Gary Mellott and Kris Orwig Sr. Qualifying events were won by Long and Jensen.
James Bilger and Mac Wert lead the field of 270 Micro Sprints to the green flag. Wert got the jump at the start and led fourth place starter Denny Rhinehimer by the completion of the first circuit. Wert maintained the lead even after a few restarts as a result of early race cautions. Timmy Bittner, who started seventh moved into third by lap number seven. The top three remained unchanged to the checkered flag, Nick Whitsel finished fourth and Mike Schuckers was fifth. Sixth through tenth were Skeetz Hockenbrock, Brayden Spencer, Bobby Sanso, Mitchell Holden and Doug Rhineard.
In the 600 Micro Sprints, a make up feature had Dexter Stawser and Trevor Teats start on the front row. Stawser took command of the field with Teats and Derek Swartz in pursuit. Jeffrey Weaver began moving forward and eventually passed Swartz and Teats. Stawser was too strong and held off Weaver for the win, Teats finished third, with Sierra Hauck and Cody Hauck rounding out the top five. Sixth through tenth were Derek Swart, Dustin Roberts, Timmy Bittner, who rallied after a flip on the opening lap, Bryce Harro and Mitchell Holden.
In the regular 600 feature event, Jeff Gyunia and Dexter Strawser led the field to the green flag. Gyunia led the opening lap with Derek Swartz, Timmy Bittner, Trevor Teats and Cody Hauck in the top five. Gyunia tried to distance himself from the rest of the field. A caution on lap number eleven gave Bittner the opportunity he needed. He was able to make the pass coming out of turn number two and took the lead from Gyunia. Hauck followed Bittner and was able to claim second. Swartz was third, Gyunia fourth and Jeffrey Weaver was fifth. Sixth through tenth were Stawser, Josh Beamer, Sierra Hauck, Dustin Roberts and Brain Kramer.
