Williams Grove Speedway World Of Outlaws Summer Nationals This Weekend

Can Schatz Be Beaten? Will Posse Defend Victory?



Mechanicsburg – Williams Grove Speedway will present the two-day World of Outlaws Summer Nationals for sprint cars this Friday and Saturday night, July 24 and 25, at 7:30 pm.

Lineups both nights will be set using time trials with Friday’s feature going 25-laps in distance, paying $8,000 to win

Saturday’s 30-lap finale will pay a hefty $20,000 to the victor plus he will receive another $5,000 for Morgan Cup laurels

The Morgan Cup is awarded each year in honor of the oval’s late owner with the sterling trophy being housed for another year at either Williams Grove Speedway or World of Outlaws headquarters, assigned to go home with whichever camp the event winner hails from – Pennsylvania Posse or World of Outlaws.  

If one driver can possibly sweep the weekend he will pocket some $33,000!

The mid-summer outlaws invasion will continue the rivalry between the locals known as the Pennsylvania Posse and the World of Outlaws travelers.

Back in May when the outlaws made their first stop of the season at Williams Grove, current World of Outlaws point leader Donny Schatz scored the one event that could be completed.

And Schatz has never looked better, currently leading WoO points to go along with his impressive 20 series victories to date.

Schatz has won the Summer Nationals finale on four occasions in his career, in 2003, 2007, 2008 and in 2013.  

Pennsylvania driver Lance Dewease is the defending Summer Nationals Champion however.

Another local in the form of Greg Hodnett scored night one of last year’s event to make it a Pennsylvania Posse sweep in the 2014 two-day affair.

Over the years, Posse stars Hodnett, Dewease, Donnie Kreitz, Fred Rahmer, Brian Leppo, Jason Johnson and Cody Darrah, while still running locally, have taken victories in Summer Nationals action.

Likewise, outlaws pilots Danny Lasoski, Joey Saldana, Paul McMahan, Craig Dollansky, Terry McCarl and Jason Meyers have also taken event wins along with Schatz and Darrah as a card carrier as well.

Hodnett currently leads the Williams Grove point standings while Stevie Smith, driving for Fred Rahmer, recently wrapped up an impressive jaunt to become the 2015 Pennsylvania Speedweek champion.

Both men would have to be considered the front runners to defend Williams Grove turf against the outlaws invaders.

Adult general admission for both Summer National programs is $30 with youth ages 13 – 20 admitted for $15.

Kids ages 12 and under are always admitted FREE at Williams Grove Speedway!

The track portion of the 50/50 over the course of both events will be split between three organizations.

Recipients of the proceeds will be Bethesda Project, Kiwanis and the Williams Grove Steam Association.

The Williams Grove Saturday Series featuring the super sportsman continues on Saturdays during the summer months with race time at 7 pm each week, aside from July 25.


After Summer Break, Port Royal Returns With Slivinski Law Military Night Aug. 1

Aug. 8 Dream Race In Sight



Port Royal – Port Royal Speedway will be dark for Summer Break on Saturday, July 25 before kicking off the month of August on Saturday, August 1 with Slivinski Law Offices Salute To The Military Night, when all past and present members of the military will receive free general admission.

The August 1 racing program will include the 410 sprints, the 305 sprints, the xtreme stocks and the super late models.

The super lates will race in an extra distance event that will find the field receiving some $10,000 in product giveaways and double points toward the season-long track title.

As part of the military theme for the night, specially designed and produced “Little Big Shot” super hose nozzles will be on sale at the event by the Raystown Kruisers car club.

All proceeds from the nozzle sales will go to the Pennsylvania Wounded Warrior Project.

And then just one week later on August 8 the 410 sprints and the super lates will stage the 2015 version of the Living Legends Dream Race including twin semi features for sprints that set the grid for the 35-lap sprint Dream A Main and a special 21-lap, extra purse feature and overall event for the super late models in honor of Scott Haus and Ed Powell.

Honored as Living Legends at the race will be veteran driver and car owner Scotty Haus and Ed Powell, respectively.

The total event purse for both the sprint and late model payouts goes over the $65,000 mark plus another several thousand dollars in contingency prizes and cash awards will be given away to the sprint and late model drivers.  

Gates for the Dream Race will open at 4 pm with WJUN 92.5 FM radio broadcasting live from the speedway prior to the big event as free hand dipped ice cream and vouchers for sandwiches are given away courtesy of Mexico Market and the Juniata County Dairy council.

Smith Is Ready For Grove Outlaws With Tune Up Victory, Kody Lehman Gets 358 First



Mechanicsburg – Stevie Smith said he is ready for the outlaws Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway after taking the checkers in the sprint car tune-up for next week’s two-day World of Outlaws Summer Nationals invasion.

“We’ll give it our best shot,” said Smith after taking his third oval win of the season aboard his Miller Brother’s Chevrolet No. 51.

In the 358 sprint main, Enola’s Kody Lehman scored his first ever win in the division at the track, holding off a tenacious charge by two-time winner Chase Dietz for the victory.

Second starter Lucas Wolfe took his stab at the lead in the 410 sprint main shortly after action began in the 25-lapper by jabbing his No. 1 underneath Smith for the lead as the pair raced through the third and fourth turns to complete lap number one.

Wolfe’s dive and drive up in front of Smith forced both pilots up over the cushion and into near disaster before Wolfe pulled his car back down to lead the first circuit.

But Smith was hot on his tail as the pair crossed the starting line and as fast as Wolfe took the lead he lost it in the first corner when Smith made a big swoop across the bottom to get control in the second corner.

Brian Montieth started fourth in the field and blasted around Wolfe for second on the fifth tour and gave chase of leader Smith.

He steadily cut into Smith’s advantage and was forcing the issue in traffic when a miscue by Smith sent backmarker Jordan Mackison careening into the second turn wall and flipping wildly after contact with Smith as he attempted to put Mackison a lap down.

Smith continued on after the red flag stoppage but took credit for the crash in victory lane, apologizing for the contact and admitting that the pressure from Montieth was all that he could handle.

With open track Smith got away at the new green and instead Greg Hodnett came on strong to get by Montieth for second with 12 laps to go.

And once into second, Hodnett steadily sliced away at Smith’s advantage and as the leader again entered the backmarkers on the 17th tour, Hodnett was there to take his shot at the win.

But just like the last time Smith was to be challenged, a yellow flag slowed the pace and cleared the track with just three laps to go.

After that Smith was home free but the show would be staged between Hodnett and Montieth to the finish as the pair swapped second on more than one occasion with Hodnett coming out on top in what was a contentious battle.

Lance Dewease swooped under Wolfe for fourth in the final two laps, relegating him to fifth at the finish.

Sixth through 10th went to Alan Krimes, Danny Dietrich, Doug Esh, Brock Zearfoss and Jim Siegel.

The victory was the 32nd of Smith’s career at Williams Grove, placing him in a tie with his father Steve Smith Sr. on the all time win list.

Heats went to Wolfe, Dewease and Siegel with Mark Smith taking the consolation and Smith winning the dash to earn the pole.

Wolfe set quick time over the field with a lap of 16.586 seconds.

Matt Findley led the first seven laps of the 20-lap 358 sprint main before Lehman muscled by on the outside for the win.

Lehman made good time around the top of the speedway and was first poised to take the lead with five laps down when the races first caution flag appeared.

It took him a few more laps after action resumed to get control.

After starting 10th, Kevin Nouse took second from Findley with nine laps to go but failed to close on the leader and he instead found 13th starter Chase Dietz challenging him for second when he suddenly dropped out of the race with three laps to go.

The restart set up an exciting finish as Dietz challenged Lehman, taking the lead briefly twice in the first and second turns only to see Lehman one-up him to reclaim the spot, first with a slingshot off the second corner and secondly with a run down low.

Lehman refused to be denied for the victory, followed by Dietz, Findley, Scott Fisher and Doug Hammaker.

Heats went to Chandler Leiby, Matt Campbell and Nouse.

Alan Krimes Wins Williams Grove Sprints

Dietz becomes first repeat winner of season in 358 sprints



Mechanicsburg – “Superman” Alan Krimes scored an annihilating sprint car victory at Williams Grove Speedwya on Friday night, taking his first oval win of the year by 8.403 seconds in the 25-lap 410 sprint car main.

In the 25-lap 358 sprint main, Chase Dietz won his second feature of the year, becoming the first repeat winner in the class this season.

Tim Glatfelter led from the outset of the 410 sprint main from the second starting spot while Lance Dewease worked to take second from Daryl Stimeling.

Krimes started fifth in the field and drove into fourth with four laps down.

Krimes used the outside lane to move to the front and get by Brent Marks for third with five away before changing lanes to the bottom to run down leaders Glatfelter and Dewease.

It took several laps for him to track down the front duo before driving by Dewease on the 11th tour and then biting fast to pass Glatfelter two laps later.

Once in front, Krimes just continued to stretch his lead, finishing nearly a full half lap ahead of Dewease to record the fifth win of his career at the track.

“When the track gets really wide like this, our car works really well,” Krimes said in victory lane.

Seventh starter Steve Buckwalter moved steadily to the front during the race, making it a three-car race for second during the final five laps.

Dewease eventually secured second with Buckwalter getting by Glatfelter for third.

Glatfelter finished fourth followed by Lucas Wolfe.

Sixth through 10th went to Danny Dietrich, a fading Brent Marks, Austin Hogue, Brock Zearfoss and Brian Montieth.

Heats went to Buckwalter, Marks and Stimeling.

The race began with a red flag for a backstretch flip by Scott Wilson that landed him outside turn three while Freddie Rahmer clouted the inside rail.

Russell Hammaker led the first pair of laps in the 358 sprint main before Phil Walter took over.

Walter would lead as Chase Dietz worked his way front, taking over second on just the fourth lap after rocketing into contention from the fifth row.

Dietz was strong in the Godfrey No. 5 and overtook Walter on the eighth tour to secure the win and lead the rest of the distance.

It was his third career oval win and second of the season.

The 358 event was the first in the four race Nouse Signs & Graphics Summer Series staged between Williams Grove and Lincoln Speedways.

Matt Campbell took second from Walter on the final lap with Glenndon Forsythe riding home fourth followed by Doug Hammaker.

Sixth through 10th went to Adrian Shaffer, Kevin Nouse, Bill Stine, Kody Lehman and Jason Shultz.

Heats went to Walter, Stine and Russell Hammaker with Brie Hershey taking the consolation.

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY – Stevie Smith of Broken Arrow, Okla., ended the 25th Anniversary Jake’s Wayback Burgers/Trone Outdoor PA Speedweek series the way he started it—in Victory Lane!—with a convincing win in Sunday night’s Jan Opperman/Dick Bogar Memorial for 410 sprint cars at Selinsgrove Speedway.

The $5,000 win marked Smith’s seventh career at Selinsgrove driving Fred Rahmer’s Miller Bros. Chevrolet No. 51-S. Smith’s performance Sunday night  also earned him the Fast Tees Fast Time Award (16.562) and his first career PA Speedweek title that paid  $10,000 to the champion for the first time. He became the first driver to win five races in a single series.

Chad Criswell of Martinsburg, W.Va., held of Kevin Knouse of Mechanicsburg for his first career win at Selinsgrove Speedway in the 20-lap super sportsman feature, while Tyler Reeser of Orwigsburg also scored his first win at the track in the 20-lap 305 sprint car feature.

The 410 sprint cars return to Selinsgrove Speedway Saturday, Sept. 19, for the Jim Nace Memorial/33rd Annual National Open.

Second-place starter Danny Dietrich powered into the lead at the start of the sprint car feature. Racing off turn four to complete the first lap, fourth-place starter Stevie Smith used the inside lane to secure the front spot.

By the fifth circuit, Smith began to encounter slower traffic as Dietrich and sixth-place starter Aaron Ott dueled for the runner-up position. By lap nine, an intense three-car battle unfolded at the front of the pack between Smith, Dietrich and Ott.

The race’s first caution flag unfolded on lap 11 when Mallie Shuster spun his sprint car in turn four. On the lap 12 restart, third-place starter Greg Hodnett got by polesitter Lucas Wolfe for the fourth spot. Ott then made a thrilling pass in turn two to get by Dietrich for second. A lap later, Hodnett advanced to third.

On the 17th circuit, Hodnett drove by Ott for second and set his sights on Smith. Despite several late-race cautions, Smith was able to hold the field at bay. In the final laps, however, Hodnett began to reel in Smith in a last-ditch effort to pull off a pass for the win. At the checkered flag, Smith was victorious by just .57 of a victory over Hodnett, Ott, Dietrich, and fifth-place starter Brent Marks.

In the super sportsman feature, polesitter Danny Walsh led the first two laps until third-place starter Chad Criswell made the winning pass on the frontstretch. On a lap four restart, 12th-place starter Kevin Nouse passed several cars using the outside lane around turns one and two to take over the fourth spot.

On a lap seven restart, Nouse drove by fourth-place starter Chad Trout for the runner-up spot and began to close in on Criswell. At the halfway point, Nouse was in striking distance as he and Criswell raced through traffic.

In the final laps, Criswell held off Nouse by .95 of a second for his third victory of the season at three different tracks. Mike Enders, Frankie Herr, and Trout completed the top five.

Second-place starter Tyler Reese pulled into the lead at the start of the 305 sprint car feature and wired the field for his first-ever win at the track. Reese checked out from the field early in the race and opened up more than a straightaway lead over polesitter Derrick Bowersox. Late in the race, current points leader and ninth-place starter Zach Newlin advanced to the second position.

At the checkered flag, Reese posted a convincing nine-second margin of victory over Newlin, Bowersox, James Pryde, and Drew Ritchey.


There will be no racing at Selinsgrove Speedway July 11. The track will be back in action Saturday, July 18, with the annual Jeff’s Auto Body & Recycling Center Driver & Fan Appreciation Night featuring the 360 sprint cars, super late models, pro stocks, and roadrunners at 7:30 p.m. Promoter Charlie Paige announced general admission for adults and students on July 18 will be just $5!

Buckwalter Outlasts Smith And Hodnett For Port Royal Speedweek Win



Port Royal – Perseverance paid off for Port Royal Speedway, fans and Steve Buckwalter at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night as the historic oval outlasted the rain to showcase the 25th annual Jakes Wayback Burgers/Trone Outdoor PA Speedweek series for sprint cars.

In the end, Buckwalter scored a $5,000 payday for the 30-lap speedweek feature win, outrunning Stevie Smith and Greg Hodnett for his third oval win of the season.

Buckwalter started on the pole of the speedweek main and after receiving an unexpected two inches of rain Friday night and during the day on Saturday, the oval was lightning fast.

The Royersford driver zoomed into control when action began with Danny Dietrich running in second, trying to hold of speedweek point leader Stevie Smith.

Smith muscled by Dietrich on the fourth lap and went to work on Buckwalter, who entered lapped traffic on the seventh tour.

And amid traffic, Buckwalter’s blistering pace saw him doing all he could to keep the car on four wheels as he ran above the heavy cushion trying to put cars and lap down and keep Smith at bay.

Sixth starter Greg Hodnett took third on the 10th tour and closed on Smith as both drivers closed on the leader.

For two laps Buckwalter had Smith directly on his tail as the pair crossed the start/finish line with Hodnett just a whisker behind as the trio darted through traffic before the dizzying pace slowed when sixth runner Lance Dewease blew a tire with 17 laps to go.

On open track, Buckwalter got away from Smith on the restart but again in traffic starting on lap 20, Smith was able to close in for the lead.

And indeed the pair was ready to mix it up for the win with just four laps to go when Jac Haudenschild coasted right past the first turn pit entrance to stop on the track, forcing a final yellow flag in the event.

The final two miles was all Buckwalter as the Royersford Rocket took the wicked win by a margin of 1.708 seconds over Smith with Hodnett third followed by Brent Marks and Danny Dietrich.

Sixth through 10th went to Aaron Ott, Mike Wagner, Lucas Wolfe, 22nd starter Kevin Nouse and 10th starter Dylan Cisney.

Heats for the 34-car field went to Dave Ely, Buckwalter, Dewease and Marks with the consolation going to Kyle Reinhardt.

Three of the four heats established new eight lap track records with fourth heat winner Marks finally setting the mark at 2:03.611.

Greg Hodnett set quick time in Packer’s Concessions time trials and earned $100 with a lap of 15.357 seconds.

Jason Schmidt led the first eight laps of the 22-lap super late model main before seventh starter Mike Lupfer powered to his inside in the second corner to take control and streak away for the win.

The race was slowed only once, with six laps to go but Lupfer proved unbeatable to the finish, taking the win by 3.607 seconds.

Andy Haus took second with five laps to go and finished behind Lupfer, followed by Schmidt, Hayes Mattern and Brett Schadel.

Sixth through 10th went to Trent Brenneman, Patrick Bryner, Rick Singleton, Mitch Hack and Tim Smith Jr.

Heats went to Lupfer, Haus and Schmidt.

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 7/2/2015 – Combined, car driver Stevie Smith and car owner Fred Rahmer have more than 200 career Lincoln wins. But has Stevie Smith ever had a better week?

“Definitely not!” responded Smith after pulling the Fred Rahmer #51s into victory lane for his fourth win in five races as part of the 25th Annual Pennsylvania Speedweek.

“You’re not telling me nothing I didn’t know before the race started,” said Smith when asked about the race-long challenges from Lincoln points leader Brian Montieth, “I knew Brian was going to be racing hard. This is his best kind of track. He can carry a lot of momentum and his car’s real nice. Before the race, I thought to myself, ‘Of course, you have 22 other cars out here in the field you gotta race with, but you’d better be ready for Montieth.’ And sure enough…if I didn’t see that black nose.”

An inversion of eight put Smith on the outside of the front row beside 2014 Lincoln Speedweek winner Kyle Moody for the start. Moody grabbed the lead on turn two of the start and led the first five laps, with Smith and Montieth close behind.

Smith snatched the lead from Moody in turns three and four of lap six, and led the rest of the way, despite pressure from five-time 2015 Lincoln winner Montieth through heavy lapped traffic over the final third of the race.

In fact, it was with ten laps to go that Montieth actually slid in front of Smith exiting turn two, only to have Smith reclaim the lead exiting turn four of lap 20.

“I made my car wider and we just kinda went in between our normal feature set-up and something a little freer because the track was a little wetter. It seemed to work,” added Smith, whose father Steve won the first Speedweek title in 1991, “I figure that Montieth was probably the fastest car, but we were fast enough to stay ahead of him. I figured he was gonna be close, but I didn’t like when I saw him out my right side there and was eating that top up. I thought ‘I’m going to make him go around me.’ I was prepared to cut across if I had to with the lapped car, but I just felt I had a lot better momentum staying the top”.

Montieth took one last shot at Smith as they passed under the white flag waving as the two entered turn one, but Smith held his line to cross .34-seconds in front for the $7,000 payday plus $300 bonus from race night sponsor BAPS Auto Paints and Supply.

Lucas Wolfe started 11th and came on strong over the final laps to pass Danny Dietrich with five laps to go to cross third, with Dietrich settling for fourth and Robbie Kendall fifth. Sixth through tenth were Moody, Adam Wilt, Greg Hodnett, Tim Wagaman, and Gerard McIntyre, Jr.

Jac Haudenschild, who sustained mechanical problems in time trials, came back through the B-Main to start 24th in the feature and finished 14th. BAPS driver Brent Marks started 18th and finished 11th.

Fast time in time trials over the 39-car field was set by Tim Wagaman with a one-lap time of 13.242-seconds (101.948 MPH).

Heats for the 410’s were won by Kendall, Montieth, Smith, and Moody, with the other BAPS driver Austin Hogue winning the B-Main.

Smith’s win padded his already impressive Speedweek points lead (824 points). Second through tenth after five nights of Speedweek competition were Danny Dietrich (731), Lucas Wolfe (664), Greg Hodnett (649), Alan Krimes (515), Brent Marks (479), Aaron Ott (457), Brian Montieth (434), Lance Dewease (353), and Cory Haas (319).

SELINSGROVE, Pa. –  Selinsgrove Speedway will return to racing action at 7:30 p.m. this Saturday, July 4, with the 14th Annual Middleswarth Potato Chips Firecracker 30 for 358-360 sprint cars plus super late models, pro stocks, and roadrunners. Track gates will open at 5 p.m.

On Sunday, July 5, the speedway will present the Jan Opperman/Dick Bogar Memorial as part of the 25th Anniversary PA Speedweek Finale for 410 sprint cars plus super sportsman and 305 sprint cars at 7:30 p.m.

Saturday’s Firecracker 30-lap main event for the 358-360 sprint cars will pay $2,500 to win and $250 to start. Time trials, heats, and a B-main will be the format for qualifying for the sprint car special.

Past winners of the Firecracker race as a 40-lap contest include the late Jim Nace of Thompsontown (2002), Bob Beidleman of Walnutport (2003), Dave Calaman of Carlisle (2004), Nate Snyder of Halifax (2005), and Blane Heimbach of Selinsgrove (2006). In 2007, the race was abbreviated to 30 laps and was won by Calaman. Scott Flammer of West Milford, N.J.; (2008) Pat Cannon of Etters (2009); Snyder (2010); Logan Schuchart of Hanover (2011); Heimbach (2012); Jason Shultz of Carlisle (2013); and defending winner Davie Franek of Wantage, N.J., also took checkered flags in the race as a 30-lap event.

The super late models will compete in a 25-lap main event, while the pro stocks and roadrunners will race in 15-lap and 12-lap features, respectively.


Sunday night will feature the 410 sprint cars in the final race of the Jake’s Way Back Burgers/Trone Outdoor PA Speedweek Finale honoring the memory of the late driver-car owner duo of Jan Opperman and Dick Bogar. The 30-lap 410 sprint car feature will pay $5,000 to win and $400 to start.

The super sportsman and 305 sprint cars will each compete in 20-lap main events to round out the open wheel tripleheader this Sunday.   

Since 2005, the Opperman Memorial has been run in conjunction with the PA Speedweek Series for 410 sprint cars at Selinsgrove. The inaugural Opperman Memorial was won by Todd Hestor of Middleburg in 2002. Last year’s race went to Brent Myers of Myerstown.

Selinsgrove Speedway is where Opperman won the most races—19 in a sprint car—and where he clinched his only track championship in 1973. In 1974 and 1976 he qualified for the Indianapolis 500 and then returned to Pennsylvania to race sprint cars. He suffered a career-ending injury in a URC-sanctioned sprint car race in 1981 at the Jennerstown Speedway. Opperman died in 1997 at the age of 58.

Bogar is credited with recruiting Opperman to turn the wheel on what would be become one of the most famous sprint cars in the history of the sport – the Bogar No. 99.  The Bogar family name has a long heritage with the historic Snyder County half-mile oval. It was the Bogar Lumber Company that supplied the lumber to build the track’s current covered grandstand. Bogar passed away in 2014 at the age of 86.

Greg Hodnett of Spring Grove won the Ray Tilley Classic for 410 sprint cars at the track earlier this season on May 24.

Selinsgrove Raceway Park will present the Firecracker Special for go karts at 7 p.m. this Friday, July 3. Track gates will open at 5:30 p.m.

25th Annual PA Speedweek Series Begins Friday At Williams Grove Speedway

ARDC Midgets join speedweek sprints



Mechanicsburg – Williams Grove Speedway will kickoff the 25th annual Pennsylvania Speedweek Series for 410 sprint cars this Friday night, June 26 at 7:30 pm.

The Williams Grove Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprints will compete in the speedweek series opener, paying $5,000 to win a 25-lap main event.

The race will be part of the 2015 Hoosier Diamond Series at the oval.

The ARDC Midgets will also be on the Friday night card.

The Williams Grove portion of the 50/50 on the night will be donated to Citizens Hose Co. No. 1 of Dillsburg as the company that supplies ambulance coverage to the speedway.  

Thanks to speedweek series title sponsors Jake’s WayBack Burgers and Trone Outdoor, the 2015 speedweek series champion will receive a hefty and fitting $10,000 for the laurels.

Williams Grove Speedway first began hosting the start of the highly successful series back in 2013.

Greg Hodnett, the current Williams Grove season and Diamond Series point leader, won that first Williams Grove kickoff with Danny Dietrich scoring the opener at the track last year.

Williams Grove will play host to its second and biggest night of the 2015 series one week later, on July 3 at 7:30 pm, when it hosts “The Crown Jewel Of Speedweek,” The Mitch Smith Memorial.

The Smith Memorial pays $10,000 to the winner.

This year will mark the 27th running of the prestigious event honoring the late area hot shoe.

Clearly, current Grove point leader Greg Hodnett is the man to beat in speedweek action.

The Spring Grove pilot owns four career titles in the series but his car owner, Mike Heffner of Hellertown has yet to garner a crown.

And this could be the year for Heffner.

His car and Hodnett have already won twice at the Grove alone this season and eight other times during their campaign thus far, making them the win leaders in the East and one of the top performing teams in the nation.

The quest for the speedweek title all starts Friday night, at 7:30 pm, at Williams Grove Speedway.  

Adult general admission for the show is $16 with youth ages 13 – 20 admitted for $10.  

Kids ages 12 and under are always admitted free at Williams Grove Speedway!  

The Williams Grove Saturday Series featuring the super sportsman continues on Saturdays during the summer months with race time at 7 pm each week.


Wolfe Rockets Through Field, Scores Popular & Pleasing Williams Grove Sprints Win

Campbell scores 358 sprint championship



Mechanicsburg – Lucas Wolfe scored a popular and crowd pleasing sprint car victory at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, pocketing some $4,360 for the 25-lap main event.

In the 25-lap championship event for 358 sprints it was Matt Campbell scoring the win to become the fifth different winner in as many races at the track.

Aboard his orange No. 5W, Wolfe started the 410 sprint feature in the eighth spot and remained outside the top five during the early going while polesitter Kyle Reinhardt paced the field.

Reinhardt was chased by third starter Freddie Rahmer from the beginning and when the races only caution flag appeared for a spin by Greg Hodnett on the third lap, Rahmer took his swipe at the lead.

But Rahmer could only stay close to Reinhardt for about two laps before falling off the leader’s pace.

Meanwhile, Wolfe cracked the top five, getting by Brian Montieth with 12 laps recorded and from that point on he rocketed forward with tremendous entry speed in the corners.

He took fourth with 11 laps to go then got by Cory Haas for third on the 18th tour.

With five laps to go Wolfe had disposed of Rahmer as the leaders raced through traffic and it took up until the two to go point for Wolfe to be in position to pull off a pass for the win.

But despite being close enough, it seemed as though Wolfe would hold off until the final lap and that’s exactly what he did despite almost being foiled by heavy traffic.

With a good run off of the second corner and down the backchute on the final circuit, Wolfe drew up on Reinhardt’s bumper but a lapped car directly under the leader seemed like it would halt Wolfe’s charge in the final corners.

However Wolfe pushed his car and skill to the limit when he suddenly thrust his racer right in between Reinhardt on top and the slow car on the inside, using the middle to perfection as all three cars shot into the corner.

And that move scored Wolfe his 12th career victory at the oval and won him a $250 bonus for a last lap pass plus another $500 for winning from the fourth row.

Reinhardt finished a career best second followed by another career best for Freddie Rahmer.

Cory Haas was fourth and Alan Krimes completed the top five.

Sixth through 10th went to Brent Marks, Danny Dietrich, Lance Dewease, Steve Buckwalter and Daryl Stimeling.

Heats went to Rodney Westhafer, Marks and Krimes with Mark Smith taking the consolation.

Campbell led all 25 laps of the 358 sprint main after the race go off to a rocky start with a nine car pile up in the first corner.

The new lineup placed Chase Dietz in fourth for the restart and he chased Campbell the entire distance, getting close in traffic on several occasions only to see Campbell get away once clearing the slower cars.

Jordan Givler held third early before giving way to Kevin Nouse.

Doug Hammaker raced home fourth with Givler crossing the finish line in fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Adrian Shaffer, Chandler Leiby, Rich Eichelberger, Chad Trout and Phil Walter.

Heats went to Dietz, Todd Reed and Campbell.

Greg Hodnett Expected To Join The Field For This Weekend’s Race

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – The 15th Annual Mach 1 Chassis National Open for 360 sprint cars is expected to draw a talented field of drivers chasing after the $10,000 top prize to win the 35-lap main event sanctioned with the United Racing Club this Saturday, June 20, at Selinsgrove Speedway.

Greg Hodnett of Spring Grove, one of the nation’s leading 410 sprint car winners this season, is tentatively scheduled to compete in this weekend’s lucrative event offering a purse exceeding $35,000, one of the largest of any 360 sprint car race in the United States.  Finishing second in the race will earn a driver $5,000, with $1,000 posted for a 10th-place finish, and $500 just to start the race.

One of Hodnett’s 10 wins this season was in the Ray Tilley Classic for 410 sprint cars at Selinsgrove Speedway  May 24. He is slated to be one of the guests on this Thursday’s edition of “The Inside Lane” on ESPN 92.3 airing 5-6 p.m.

A new qualifying format will be utilized for this year’s race, including one round of sprint car heat races that will award passing points to determine the starting lineup for the A-main.

Track gates will open at 5 p.m., with racing slated to begin at 7:30 p.m. The pro stocks will also be on the racing card.

The rain date, if needed, will be Sunday, June 21, at 7 p.m.
In 358-360 sprint car Open history at Selinsgrove Speedway, 14 races have produced nine different winners since 2001.

TJ Stutts of Liverpool won the inaugural race in 2001 and scored victories in 2003 and 2013. In Pat Cannon of Etters, however, was the first three-time winner of the 358-360 sprint car Open in 2012. Cannon’s other  victories were in 2007 and 2008.

Logan Schuchart of Hanover drove to an impressive victory in the 2011 race. In 2010, Daryn Pittman of Owasso, Okla., was awarded the win when Cannon’s race car was under the legal weight during the post-race inspection.

Heimbach won the 2005 Open and the rain-postponed 2009 edition of the Open that was run in the spring of 2010. Adrian Shaffer of Hallam was the Open champion in 2002, while Nate Snyder of Halifax took the victory in the 2004 race. Phil Walter of McClure took home the trophy in 2006.

In last year’s Open, Aaron Ott of East Berlin scored the victory in the track’s first-ever $10,000-to-win race for 358-360 sprint cars.

In 360 sprint car racing at the speedway this season, defending track champion Mark Smith of Sunbury has four wins and leads the Mach 1 Chassis points standings over defending United Racing Club champion and one-time Selinsgrove winner this year Davie Franek of Wantage, N.J. Eric Tomacek of Abbottstown returned to sprint car racing this season and has one win at the track. Stutts, the only winner this season who has previously won the Open, took the victory in last weekend’s Joe Whitcomb Memorial.


Weikert’s Livestock Unveils Title Sponsorship Of Port Royal Sprint Cars



Port Royal – Weikert’s Livestock of Fairfield has taken ownership of title sponsorship of the 410 sprint car division at Port Royal Speedway as was announced Saturday night at the track.

Synonymous with sprint car racing in the annals of history, the famous family business now in its third generation of ownership has proudly partnered with the track to fly the Port Royal sprint car flag.

“We’re awful proud of what we do and what we’ve accomplished,” says Weikert’s Livestock owner and president Todd Weikert of the day-to-day operations at the multi-million dollar firm.

“And we’re just as proud of Port Royal for what it’s become over the last five years and a stronger relationship with Port Royal just makes good sense for us,” Weikert says.

In late April, Todd Weikert announced in conjunction with Port Royal officials that the annual, prestigious Bob Weikert Memorial will expand to a two-day format at the historic oval in 2016, spanning the Memorial Day holiday weekend.

The Weikert name rose to prominence on the back of the famed Weikert’s Livestock No. 29 sprint car during the decades of the 1970s, 80s and early 90s.

With the car campaigning from coast to coast including at Port Royal, experiencing unprecedented success, Bob Weikert’s forays in the sport laid groundwork for the current prosperity being experienced at Weikert’s Livestock

Weikert’s Livestock buys and sells cattle from coast to coast with more than 50-percent of its clientele placed west of the Mississippi.

“A big part of our clients are race enthusiasts,” says Todd Weikert, “It’s a network.”

In addition to the commerce they conduct in the livestock trade, the firm also owns and operates some 600 acres of farmland in south central Pennsylvania.



SELINSGROVE, Pa. – TJ Stutts of Liverpool and Davie Franek of Wantage, N.J., engaged in another thrilling wheel-to-wheel battle that was reminiscent of a race Franek won a few weeks ago, only this time it was Stutts who rolled into Victory Lane for the first time this season Saturday night in the 30-lap Joe Whitcomb Memorial for 360 sprint cars at Selinsgrove Speedway.

The $2,571 win, which made him the first four-time winner of the Whitcomb Memorial, was Stutts’ 21st career in 358-360 sprint car racing at the track.

Mark Smith of Sunbury was the night’s Fast Tees Fast Qualifier with a lap time of 17.307 (110.16 average mph).

Jeff Rine of Danville returned to Selinsgrove and scored his third win of the season and 94th career at the track in the 25-lap late model main event.

Brad Mitch of McClure checked out from the field to score his second 15-lap pro stock main of the year, while Keith Bissinger of Orangeville won his first race of the year in his first time out this season in the 12-lap roadrunner event.

Stutts started on the pole and drove into the lead in the sprint car feature but his drive to Victory Lane was anything but easy. Early in the race, second-place starter Derek Locke raced in Stutts’s shadow while fourth-place starter Davie Franek made it a close three-car battle at the front of the pack.

The caution flag unfurled on lap two when Mark Smith’s car stopped on the track with wheel trouble. Smith was able to rejoin the race and made a charge back through the pack during the remaining 28 laps.

The race was stopped on lap 10 when Jared Zimbardi flipped his sprint car in turn four. Zimbardi escaped injury. When the race resumed, an intense see-saw battle for the lead unfolded between Stutts and  Franek. The war on wheels was held up again when Michael Walter and John Braim were involved in a double flip in turn two. Both drivers were not injured.

During the second half of the race, Stutts and Franek raced side-by-side while Smith eventually made his way into the third position. At the checkered flag Stutts took the victory by 1.9 seconds over Franek, Smith, Locke, and Ryan Kissinger.

Outside front row starter Hayes Mattern dueled with polesitter Danny Snyder for the early lead in the super late model feature. Mattern pulled into the front spot and stretched his lead during the first half of the race over fourth-place starter Donnie Schick.

At the halfway point, ninth-place starter Jeff Rine stormed into the runner up position and set his sights on Mattern. On the 14th circuit, Rine caught Mattern and made the winning pass using the inside lane off turn four.

On lap 19, Schick withdrew from the race as seventh-place starter Steve Campbell began to show a lot of speed. At the finish, Rine was victorious by 5.2 seconds over Mattern, Campbell, eighth-place starter Jim Yoder, and 10th-place starter Chad Hollenbeck.

Polesitter Jake Buck powered into the lead at the start of the pro stock feature and was chased by fifth-place starter Brad Mitch for the first lap until Mitch made the winning pass in turn two. Once in front of the pack, Mitch checked out from the field while Buck contended with seventh-place starter Adam Campbell for the runner up position.

At the finish, Mitch was victorious by a full five seconds over Buck, Campbell, third-place starter Derrick Garman, and 10th-place starter Nathan Long.

Polesitter Dustin Snook and fourth-place starter Bob Bussey were dueling at the front of the pack when contact between the drivers allowed ninth-place starter Keith Bissinger to storm into the lead on the fifth circuit.

Bissinger kept his trademark green “tank” No. 11 at the front of the pack for the rest of the distance and scored the win by 1.8 seconds over John Fowler Jr., Snook, Jeff Ceballo, and Bussey.

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Selinsgrove Speedway will honor the memory of sprint car driver Joe Whitcomb with the 12th running of the Joe Whitcomb Memorial for 358-360 sprint cars at 7:30 p.m. this Saturday, June 13, sanctioned by the Patriot Sprint Tour.  The super late models, pro stocks, and roadrunners will also be on the racing card. Track gates will open at 5 p.m.

The 30-lap sprint car feature, a tribute to honor the late open wheel racer from Millersburg who succumbed to injuries sustained in a sprint car racing accident at the track on June 21, 2003, will pay $2,571 to win and $225 to start.  Time trials, heat races, and a B-main will be the qualifying format for the special event.   

The June 13 event will carry the second-ever sanction by the Patriot 360 sprint car tour based in Sodus, N.Y.  The race will allow both the Patriot Sprint Tour and Selinsgrove Speedway tire and wing rules. 358 sprint car teams will also be permitted to compete with the Patriot group.

In last year’s Whitcomb Memorial, TJ Stutts of Liverpool (2014, 2012, 2011) became the third driver to win the race three times after a thrilling wheel-to-wheel duel with Mark Smith of Sunbury.

Pat Cannon of Etters (2013, 2010, 2009) and Blane Heimbach of Selinsgrove (2008, 2007, 2006) are the other two drivers who have won the tribute race three times.  Other previous winners include Nate Snyder of Halifax (2004) and Kevin Nagy of East Brunswick, N.J. (2005).

Whitcomb, a dedicated racer most of his life, began his career in go-karts at the age of seven.  He won hundreds of races in karting and was a three-time national karting champion.  A highlight during his karting career was an appearance on ESPN.

In 2001, Whitcomb became a regular competitor at Selinsgrove in the 358 sprint car, driving his trademark blue and yellow number 71 racer.  That year, Whitcomb became Selinsgrove Speedway’s Sportsman of the Year.

Whitcomb won his first sprint car race at Selinsgrove on June 8, 2002, ending the five-race winning streak of champion Chad Layton of Harrisburg.  Whitcomb also won sprint car races at Williams Grove and Bridgeport Speedways during his racing career.

Selinsgrove Raceway Park will present a program of go kart and 125 micro sprint car racing at 7 p.m. Friday, June 12.

The A&A Auto Stores Pro Stock 20 that was rained out on May 30 has been rescheduled for Saturday, June 27.

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 6/6/2015 – Danny Dietrich was hearing things at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

And that was good, because it kept his elbows up in a 35-lap feature that paid $7,000 to win and an automatic starting spot in the September 26th Lincoln “Dirt Classic” paying $20,000 to win.

“I don’t how far ahead I was,” said Dietrich after scoring his second Lincoln win of the year and 25th of his career in the Pigeon Hills, “When you get out front there you think you hear people. I thought Stevie was under me in turn four that one lap. I kinda moved down on the straightaway because I thought I heard somebody.”

Second place Stevie Smith, who wasn’t as close as Dietrich thought, got into Dietrich’s dirty air every time he tried to pull close, and settled for the runner-up spot 1.9 seconds behind Sandoe’s Fruit Market/Hickory Run Orchards/Weikert’s Livestock #48.

After gathering points through time trials and qualifiers that saw the early time trailers start at the back of their respective heats, Dietrich (ninth in time trials and winner of his heat) drew the number three pill for the redraw at the front of the feature field.

Polesitter and early-race leader Kyle Moody was nearly collected and did a “360” to keep moving when Brent Marks spun out on turn four of lap six. At the time, Moody had a three-second lead. Just before the caution, Dietrich caught Ott for the runner-up spot.

Moody led the next seven laps before Dietrich slid under him exiting turn two of lap 14. Dietrich led the rest of the way, and Moody did another “360” under green on turn four of lap 14, just before being collected by a spun-out Tim Glatfelter in turn one to end his night.

Ott assumed second for the restart, but Stevie Smith drove around the Bruner’s Service Center for second on lap 22. At the time, Dietrich was 1.53 seconds ahead. Smith did his best to close on the leader, and Dietrich, feeling the pressure, had one close call trying to clear Adam Wilt with only a few laps to go.

“I had to kinda push the issue with Adam,” explained Dietrich, “But I had to get moving. I wasn’t going to drive into him, but I had to press the issue and it worked out for us. Here we are.”

“Stevie’s fast every time he hits the track,” said Dietrich, “It feels good to beat him because his winning percentage is pretty darn good…a lot better than ours. To beat Stevie and Greg and Brian and Aaron…all those guys…it’s just awesome to get a win on the big stage here tonight.”

Ott settled for third, with tenth-starting Brian Montieth coming home fourth. New one-lap track record holder Lucas Wolfe crossed fifth. Sixth through tenth were Greg Hodnett, 12th-starting Alan Krimes, 14th-starting Niki Young, Lance Dewease, and 16th-starting Freddie Rahmer.

Heats for the 410’s were won by Billy Dietrich, Marks, Moody, and Danny Dietrich, with Austin Hogue winning the consolation. Fast time in time trials over the 33-car field was set by Lucas Wolfe with a record-setting one-lap time 12.719 seconds (106.140 MPH). Brent Marks won the “Fans Choice” Dash.

Lincoln Speedway points series leader Doug Hammaker became the first repeat winner of 2015 in the 20-lap “358” sprint feature. And he did it in dramatic fashion, sliding polesitter and race-long leader Ryan Higgins in heavy lapped traffic on the final two turns to the checkered flag.

Higgins, shooting for his first career win, settled for second, with 11th-starting Kevin Nouse, Cody Fletcher, and Tyler Esh rounding out the top five. Adrian Shaffer, who did a “360” in turn four while racing with Higgins for the lead with six laps to go, lost several spots but came back to finish sixth.

Heats for the 30 358’s were won by Hammaker, Matt Campbell, and John Braim, with Jeff Rohrbaugh winning the consolation.

Madman Ballou Storms To Port Royal USAC Sprints Victory

Buckwalter Drives Heffner To ARDC Checkers



Port Royal – The national stars of USAC blew through Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night for the Eastern Storm, with “The Madman,” Robert Ballou of Rocklin, Calif., taking the 30-lap, $6,000 victory in a cushion-pounding performance.

In the 20-lap ARDC Midget main it was Steve Buckwalter of Royersford driving Mike Heffner’s No. 27 midget taking the victory from deep in the field.

The victory was Buckwalter’s third at the track this season counting a pair of sprint car wins earlier.  It was also car owner Heffner’s third midget win of the season with as many drivers.

Point leader Eric Irving of Petersburg overtook Andrew Yoder in the 20-lap championship for econo late models to close out the night.

Some 28 USAC National Sprint Cars entered competition for the Port Royal leg of the 2015 Eastern Storm Series with “The Throttle,” Shane Cottle of Kokomo, Ind., setting quick time in track record form for a wingless 410 sprint.

Cottle set the mark at 18.997 seconds however he failed to qualify through his heat race, instead driving into the feature through the B Main.

The 30-lap USAC feature began with Landon Simon of Tipp City, Oh., and Logan Jarrett of Kokomo, Ind., lined up on the front row with Tracy Hines and Ballou in row two.

Only one caution flag slowed the hectic non-wing pace, on the 14th tour.

Prior to that time, Simon took the lead at the start with Jarrett falling backwards while former USAC champion Hines raced into second.

Ballou slid backward at the beginning of the event, giving way to Chase Stockon of Elizabethtown, Ind., as Hines worked on the leader for control.

But Simon was up to the task, driving what by all accounts was the race of his career to date, using both sides of the speedway to maintain control.

Meanwhile, Ballou seemed stalled in fifth until just before the lone caution, when he motored into fourth.

And on the restart, the 26-year old went to work driving to the front, pounding the cushion into submission to ride by Stockon for third on the 15th tour before blasting past Hines with 12 laps to go.

Once Ballou got his pace going, his power on the cushion was clear and he used that speed and a run into the first turn to take the lead.

He dropped down from the second turn rough on the 19th tour to steer his No. 12 inside of Simon on the backchute to take the lead as the pair powered into the third corner.

With the lead, Ballou pulled away from any challenges during the final 10 laps although Stockon did have designs on the checkers.

He got by Simon for second with three laps to go and ran down Ballou’s advantage before the finish, still falling short of the top spot at the end by 1.072 seconds and closing.

Simon ended up with a podium in third followed by Hines, New Castle, Ind., and Jon Stanbrough, Avon, Ind.

Sixth through 10th went to Dave Darland, Lincoln, Ind.; defending Eastern Storm and National USAC champion Brady Bacon, Broken Arrow, Ok.; Justin Grant, Ione, Calif.; Logan Jarrett, Kokomo, Ind.; and Shane  Cottle, Kokomo, Ind.

Heats went to Bacon, Ballou and Darland with Stanbrough taking the B Main.

Jim Radney led at the start of the ARDC Midget main with Ryan Greth racing in second.

Steve Buckwalter started 11th in the field and roared to the front, racing fourth on just the third lap.

He methodically drove by the cars of Brett Wanner, Greth and then leader Radney on the seventh tour to take command and check out on the field for the win.

Radney rode home second followed by Greth, Bruce Buckwalter Jr., and Steve Drevicki.

Heats for the 15-car field went to Trevor Kobylarz and Greth.

Kobylarz fell out of third in the feature event with five laps to go after spinning in the fourth turn while trying to race into second spot.

Point leader Eric Irvin started eighth in the econo late model feature while second starter Andrew Yoder took the lead.

Yoder set the pace through nearly the entire race until getting bottled up in traffic with two laps to go.

Upon running up on a backmarker on the frontchute, the pair made contact with both cars turning sideways while Irving motored by into the lead after taking second on the fifth tour.

Irvin went on to claim the win by a margin of 1.291seconds over Yoder, Tim Fedder, Harold Ranck and Shaun Miller.

Heats went to Shaun Miller and Jared Fulkroad.

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Wherever Mark Smith travels to race this season – Florida, Pennsylvania, even Canada – the Sunbury driver seems to have no problem finding Victory Lane. For the fourth time this season at Selinsgrove Speedway, Smith scored a thrilling victory over TJ Stutts of Liverpool by just .64 of a second in Saturday’s 25-lap United Racing Club 360 sprint car feature.

Driving the Mach 1 Chassis house car, Smith collected $2,000 for his seventh overall victory this year and 14th career in 358-360 sprint car racing at the speedway.

Chad Hollenbeck of Kingsley pulled off a last-lap, last-turn pass by Gene Knaub of York for his first career super late model win at Selinsgrove Speedway in the division’s 25-lap main event, while Nathan Long of Selinsgrove held off Andrew Shoop of Mifflintown for his second win of the year in the 15-lap pro stock race.

Selinsgrove Speedway will hold the Joe Whitcomb Memorial for 360 sprint cars at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, June 13. The 30-lap tribute race will pay $2,571 to win and will be sanctioned by the Patriot Sprint Tour. Joining the sprint cars on the racing card will be the super late models, pro stocks, and roadrunners. Track gates will open at 5 p.m.

Second-place starter Jason Shultz drove into a convincing early lead at the start of the sprint car feature. Shultz was chased by polesitter Robbie Stillwaggon while fifth-place starter Mark Smith dueled with third-place starter Ryan Kissinger.

On lap seven, Smith got by Stillwaggon for second  and started to navigate his way through traffic to catch Shultz. The race was stopped on lap 13 when Mallie Shuster’s car flipped out over the second turn guardrail. Shuster escaped injury.

When the race resumed, Shultz led Smith and ninth-place starter TJ Stutts back to the green flag. Exiting turn two, Smith made the winning pass using the inside lane. Two laps later, Stutts advanced to second and closed in on Smith in the final laps.

On the final lap, Stutts almost got alongside of Smith to challenge for the lead and win. At the checkered flag, Smith was victorious by .64 of a second over Stutts, Shultz, Stillwaggon, and Kissinger.

Outside front row starter Gene Knaub powered into the lead at the start of the late model feature and was chased by polesitter Hayes Mattern and third-place starter Tony Adams. Knaub stretched his lead to nearly a straightaway during the first half of the race as fifth-place starter Chad Hollenbeck started making his way through the pack.

A hard battle unfolded for the second spot between Mattern and Hayes. However, by lap seven, Hollenbeck advanced to second and set his sites on Knaub while eighth-place starter Jim Yoder raced into the third position.

In the final laps, Hollenbeck reeled in Knaub and was in striking distance on the final circuit. Racing off turn four for the checkered flag, Hollenbeck made a thrilling inside pass for the lead and scored his first win by only .14 of a second over Knaub, Yoder, Dave Zona, and Coleby Frye.

In the pro stock feature, third-place starter Nate Stroup led the first three laps until 11th-place starter Nathan Long stormed into the lead with an inside pass in turn three. At the halfway point, 12th-place starter Andrew Shoop advanced to second and began to pressure Long for the lead.

At one point, Shoop pulled alongside of Long in a bid for the lead to no avail. At the checkered flag, Long was victorious by just .47 of a second over Shoop, Adam Campbell, Dave Brouse Jr., and Jim Payne.

All Stars Sprints Poised For Another Williams Grove Run Friday

PASS 305 sprints join All Stars for Williams Grove battle with Posse!



Mechanicsburg – Williams Grove Speedway will host the All Stars Circuit of Champions Sprint Cars this Friday night, June 12 at 7:30 pm.

The PASS 305 sprints are also on the racing program.

The match up between the All Stars and the Pennsylvania Posse will be the second and final appearance of the season by the circuit at the track and the show is highly anticipated after a rather successful April stint in the area by the travelers.

One of the All Stars invaders, Pittsburgh’s Danny Holtgraver led the first half of the Williams Grove main event back in April before packing a wheel and falling off the pace.

Greg Hodnett went on to claim the victory.

Holtgraver will be just one of a batch of top-notch All Stars to return to the Williams Grove wars next Friday, gunning for the $5,000 top prize in the 30-lap feature event.

Also pitside will be perennial All Stars champion Dale Blaney, who finished third at the track in April.

Also expected to reappear for the June show are past champions Chad Kemenah, Tim Shaffer and Greg Wilson along with the likes of up and comers Parker Price-Miller and Sheldon Haudenschild, Ryan Smith, Cody Darrah and more.

Adult general admission for the show is $18 with youth ages 13 – 20 admitted for $10.  

Kids ages 12 and under are always admitted free at Williams Grove Speedway!  

The Williams Grove portion of the 50/50 on the night will be donated to The American Red Cross as they will be conducting a blood drive at the track during the night.

The June 12 All Stars show will be another in the 2015 Hoosier Diamond Series at the track.

And given the type of contingent traveling with the All Stars in 2015, the potential for a first-ever win at Williams Grove by a bona-fide All Star in an All Star event seems quite viable.

To date, no such event has occurred, with the score currently sitting at 29-0 for the PA Posse since All Stars competition began at the oval in 1970.

The Williams Grove Saturday Series featuring the super sportsman continues on Saturdays during the summer months with race time at 7 pm each week.

Kreitz And Michael Score Exciting Williams Grove Sprint Wins



Mechanicsburg – Don Kreitz Jr. scored the 61st sprint car win of his Williams Grove Speedway career on Friday night and the 200th overall of his life by taking an exciting victory over Steve Buckwalter after allowing Buckwalter to take the lead away mid-race.

In the companion 25-lap URC Sprint main an amazing battle at the front between four cars as the race finished thrilled the fans with Curt Michael coming out on top for his second club win of the season.

Kreitz started on the pole of the 410 sprint feature with Austin Hogue racing second.

Hogue challenged Kreitz briefly early before falling backward as Buckwalter charged into contention.

Kreitz entered the backmarkers on the 10th tour with Buckwalter chasing furiously and as Kreitz struggled with lapped cars, Buckwalter made repeated attempts to snare the top spot.

Buckwalter zipped around the cushion on the 20th lap to drive into control and bring the field back to the stripe just before the races only caution flag unfurled for Hogue, who shredded a tire.

Kreitz lined up second for the restart with Aaron Ott in third and when action resumed Buckwalter went low to protect the bottom.

But Buckwalter’s attempts at low-slung lines didn’t hold up for long as Kreitz pounded on his rear bumper and retook the lead for the win with three laps to go.

After reclaiming control, Kreitz streaked away from Buckwalter to take the victory worth over $3,600.

Lucas Wolfe charged into third during the final circuits with Ott finishing fourth and Lance Dewease finishing fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Danny Dietrich, Greg Hodnett, Brent Marks, Brian Montieth and Ryan Smith.

Heats for the 28-car field went to Smith, Kreitz and Dewease.  There was no consolation.

ESS invader Jason Barney took the lead from the pole in the URC Sprint feature, chased by Larry Kelleher and Steve Buckwalter.

Kelleher muscled by Barney for the lead on the eighth lap with Buckwalter following him into second on the 11th tour.

At the same time, Mark Smith and Curt Michael started making noise inside the top five.

Buckwalter dogged Kelleher until the 17th circuit when he took over the lead.

Mark Smith pushed his mount into second with six laps to go but just then Michael charged into third using the low line and soon pounced on Smith for second with a pair of laps to go.

A caution flag shortly after the two-to-go sign slowed the hectic pace and change of positions and placed Michael on Buckwalter’s bumper for a final dash to the checkers.

Just like he had done in the previous main, Buckwalter tried defense when action resumed and he was able to hold off Michael back to the white flag but Michael shot his No. 5G under Buckwalter as the pair set their cars into the first corner.

Michael came out of the fracas with the lead and win while Mark Smith got by Buckwalter to steal second.

It was the Ocean View, Delaware, driver’s third victory in Williams Grove URC competition, worth $2,000.

Buckwalter was relegated to third followed by Aaron Ott and Kelleher.

Sixth through 10th went to Greg Hodnett, Barney, Tyler Ross, Glenndon Forsythe and Robbie Stillwaggon.

Heats for the 42-car field went to Ott, Hodnett, Chuck Hebing and Mark Smith.

Josh Weller scored the consolation race.

HANOVER, PA (6/5/2015) – David Holbrook saw near disaster become the race-winning move in scoring the first sprint car win of his career at Trail-Way Speedway Friday night.

The former micro-sprint driver from Parkton, MD started beside polesitter Cody Fletcher and chased him for the first 20 non-stop laps of Friday’s 358 sprint car feature before the leaders collided with a lapped car on the backstretch of lap 21, resulting in a Fletcher flip and stacking up the five cars racing for the lead.

Fletcher was uninjured, but done for the night.  Although all the leaders made contact with each other, no one else stopped and the cars running second through fifth became the cars running first through fourth.

Despite breaking a right rear shock, Holbrook assumed the lead for the restart and held off the challenges of hard-charger Brad McClelland over the final four laps to claim the win by .34 seconds.

“I had to hold the brake down and hit the gas at the same time,” said Holbrook upon exiting the Turning Stone Resort & Casino #77 in victory lane, “I didn’t know if I could hold Brad off, but it all worked out.”

“I want to thank Mike Paris for giving me a chance to race this car,” added Hobrook, “Without him, I’d still be racing micros.”

Crossing third was Dwight Leppo, with seventh-starting Isaac Sneeringer and Seth Kearchner completing the top five.

Qualifiers for the 11 “358” sprint cars were won by Sneeringer and McClelland.
358 SPRINT CARS FEATURE (25 Laps) – 1. 77-David Holbrook; 2. 6R-Brad McClelland; 3. 4-Dwight Leppo; 4. 19Z-Isaac Sneeringer; 5. 30-Seth Kearchner; 6. 19D-Wyatt Hinkle; 7. 90-Jordan Givler; 8. 2-Denny Gross; 9. 10-Zach Euculano (DNF); 10. 6S-Bill Sherman (DNF); 11. 66A-Cody Fletcher (DNF). No time.

Lap Leaders: Cody Fletcher (1-20), David Holbrook (21-25)


Williams Grove Speedway Presents School’s Out Special Saturday Night

Mechanicsburg, PA June 3, 2015

The month of June means students across the Susquehanna Valley will be putting aside the pencils and commencing with summer recess.  To begin the summer of fun, this Saturday Williams Grove Speedway presents the first School’s Out Special as part of the Saturday Night Series.

The School’s Out program began as a math challenge to the students of South Mountain and Monroe elementary schools.  Students that successfully completed the program will attend the evening’s events.

Beginning at 5 PM, gates will open to all spectators.  The first 400 children to arrive at the infield tent will each receive a fun bag that contains activity packs, goodies, and coupons for free items to enjoy throughout the summer.  Wendy's, ABC West Bowling, Red Crown Bowling Center, The Pride of the Susquehanna, Wildwood Park, Alwine Nature Center, and Buffalo Wild Wings are some of the local businesses that contributed to the fun bag.

There will be race cars on display in the infield giving youngsters a close look at the racing equipment.  Drivers will be present to sign autographs.

Included in the entertainment will be face painting, piñatas, and relay races in the infield, along with an inflatable obstacle course. Buffalo Wild Wings will be on hand and will have a spinning wheel to give out prizes. The Buffalo Wild Wing Mascot will also be present.

Williams Grove Speedway will donate their half of the evening’s 50/50 money to the PTOs of Monroe and South Mountain elementary schools.

The young fans will watch racing action featuring the Blazer’s Body Shop Super Sportsman, Credit Connection Auto Sales 358 Late Models and Aquafun Pools Street Stocks.  Last week Scott Dellinger won his first 2015 Blazer’s Body Shop Super Sportsman main event.  Gene Knaub returned to the Credit Connection Auto Sales 358 Late Model victory lane for the second straight week.  In the Aquafun Pools Street Stocks Jeff Haag captured his third victory of the year.

Pit gates open this week at 4:30 PM.  Practice starts at 6:30 with the first qualifying event beginning at 7.



It is with great disappointment,  that rain will again force the cancellation of the  Eastern Storm USAC Non-Wing Sprint Tour for the second night in a row, this time taking its toll at the Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, PA.  

The weather is extremely unsettled and with a 50% or greater chance of rain throughout the day and  late into the night, the chances of completing this event are not favorable.  In 2014, we were up against very similar weather conditions and chose to battle Mother Nature and we lost.     So it is with the highest respect and consideration of both race fans and competitors that we make this decision.

The Lincoln Eastern Storm  event will be rescheduled when USAC returns in 2016  again offering a complete show plus the make-up features that were rained out in 2014.

For nine years, I have truly put my heart into trying to make the USAC Eastern Storm a success , promoting two or three of the tour events each year.    Like many race fans, I too want to see the race, but the weather is just not working to our advantage.

Although Friday night is open for USAC,  without the proper advance advertising of the rain date,  this is not a good option.  Other considerations also include that drivers in both divisions would also be faced with a  race date conflict at another track on Friday night.

Thank you for your support and strong interest in the USAC Eastern Storm.   With your help and the continued support of the current participating tracks who are part of the Eastern Storm, we will keep this non-wing excitement alive going forward.

Please watch for additional details as USAC and event promoters Bob Miller and Ray Herold set plans for the 2016 return of the USAC Eastern Storm.

Scott Dellinger, Gene Knaub and Jeff Haag Win Williams Grove Speedway Saturday Night Features

Mechanicsburg, PA May 31, 2015

Rain, often the enemy of dirt-track racing, became a positive factor Saturday night at Williams Grove Speedway.  A shower prior to qualifying, while delaying the racing program’s start, turned the racing surface into a multiple-groove racing wonderland.

Davey Walsh led the way at the start of the 20-lap Blazer’s Body Shop Super Sportsman main.  Kenny Edkins, Steve Fannasy, Rich Eichelberger, and Jay Fannasy gave chase.  The event’s first caution arose during the third circuit when Scott Geesey came to a halt in turn two.

Walsh continued to lead with Edkins in close pursuit. Steve Fannasy, Eichelberger, Jay Fannasy, and ninth-place starter Scott Dellinger had a close fight for third.  At the race’s midway point, Dellinger shot into fourth using a three-wide pass at the exit of turn two.

The second and final caution occurred on lap 12.  Davey Walsh, Kenny Edkins, Scott Dellinger, and Steve Fannasy, following the restart, were in tight formation.  With five-laps remaining Dellinger swept into second position.  One lap later Dellinger used the low lane in turn four to become the new race leader.

Scott Dellinger, from Lewisberry, gained a comfortable lead.  A battle raged for second between Walsh, Steve Fanansy and Kenny Edkins.  Fannasy made a late push to capture second position.  At the finish Scott Dellinger won his fourth career Saturday Night Series feature by 15 lengths over Steve Fannasy, Kenny Edkins, Davey Walsh, and Scott Geesey.

Following the feature there was a protest on Scott Dellinger’s engine. There was a check of the head on his engine and Dellinger’s car passed the inspection.

Preliminaries for the 24 entries went to Geesey, Steve Wilbur and Doug Dodson.  Frankie Herr received the Sprint Aces Hard Charger award.

Sam Rial was on the pole for the launching of the 20-lap Credit Connection Auto Sales 358 Late Model feature.  Ron Kline, Alan Sagi and Brad Shank occupied the next three positions.  Eleventh-place starter Gene Knaub was fifth by the completion of the opening circuit.  Two laps later Knaub, using an outside line, advanced into second.

A caution during the fourth lap erased Sam Rial’s five-length advantage.  With the race underway, Knaub moved to the low side of the speedway.  He pulled even with Rial on the back stretch.  Gene Knaub remained on the low side in turns three and four, passing Rial exiting turn four.

Gene Knaub drove away from the field.  Alan Sagi and Ron Kline fought for second with Sagi gaining the runner-up position.  Knaub, from Dover, won his 45th career Saturday Night Series feature by a straightaway over Alan Sagi.  Ron Kline was third, with Cam Zeigler in fourth and Les Hare crossed the line in fifth.  Hare’s car did not make weight at the scale and he was dropped to the rear of the finishing cars.  Scott Richwine finished in fifth.

Qualifying for the 21 cars went to Sagi, Hare and Wes Alleman.  Travis Mease was the winner of the Artwerks Hard Charger award.

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 5/30/2015 – Anytime Brian Montieth is on track at Lincoln Speedway, there is never a lack of entertainment.

Montieth didn’t disappoint again Saturday night as he came from his 11th starting spot to score the win in the 25-lap 410 Sprint car feature.

But it wasn’t quite as easy as it might read on paper as the four time track champion raced past Gerard McIntyre, Jr. to take the lead on lap 19 but fell back to third a lap later after making contact with the inside guardrail.

But it didn’t faze the Phoenixville driver as he stormed back into the lead two laps later and drove off to pick up his 48th career track win and fourth this season in the Pigeon Hills.

“We had a good start,“ stated the driver of the Jerry Parrish owned No. 21 sprint. “This type of narrow track and anybody knows on a Saturday night like this, anybody can win the thing. If it wasn’t for lapped traffic, I don’t think we would have caught the leaders in that first set.”

Brandon Rahmer led the first five laps before yielding to McIntyre exiting the second turn. While McIntyre set the pace, Rahmer had his hands full with Adam Wilt, Cory Haas and Montieth who was marching his way to the front.

Wilt took over second place after nine laps with Haas and Montieth getting by Rahmer a lap later.

Montieth took third place from Haas on lap 15 as all top four cars ran under a blanket.

Montieth then disposed of Wilt on the 18th lap for second place with a slider in turn three and then made the same move to take the lead from McIntyre a lap later.

The lead was quick-lived as Montieth brushed the wall and immediately fell back to third place with McIntyre reclaiming the top spot.

But Montieth was not to be denied as he regrouped and two laps later retook the lead and raced to his seventh overall win this season.

“I gotta give 110 percent because my boys give 110 percent,” Montieth said of his hard working crew. “The last couple of weeks I’ve had to work seven days a week and have been barely getting here on time so to be able to get in this thing and be comfortable is the key. It’s all done in the garage and I’m just the glorified guy standing here.”

Wilt was able to fight his way around McIntyre with three laps to go to finish in the runner-up spot with 10th starting Danny Dietrich coming on strong to finish in the third spot.

McIntyre faded to fourth at the checkered flag ahead of Haas with Jim Siegel, Tyler Ross, Tim Glatfelter, Austin Hogue and Robbie Kendall completing the top 10 finishers.

Heats for the 28 410’s were won by McIntyre, Glatfelter and Haas, with Billy Dietrich winning the consolation.

Seventh-starting Matt Campbell picked up his fourth career win in the 20-lap 358 Sprint car feature.

Third-starting CJ Tracy set the pace through the first eight laps, before Campbell took the lead following a lap eight restart. Tracy regained the lead on the 13th lap, but, a flat tire on the restart, handed the lead back to Campbell, who ran unchallenged the final laps to pick-up his first win of the 2015 season.

358 Sprint point leader Doug Hammaker came from 11th to finish second, followed by Brie Hershey, 10th starting Jeff Rohrbaugh and Jeff Halligan.

Completing the top 10 were Todd Rittenhouse, Jr. 19th starting Chandler Leiby, Brian Allman, Cody Fletcher and last week’s winner Cole Young.

Heats for the 27 358’s were won by Tracy, Lucas Montgomery and Hershey.
