DOG HOLLOW ENDS SEASON, DETERMINES POINT CHAMPS
By Terry Whetstone

STRONGSTOWN, PA – Imler’s Poultry presented the final night of racing action at Dog Hollow Speedway and the 2006 point champions were decided, some of which it took until the final lap to determine a champ.
Matt Gaston of Punxsutawney won the super late model feature while Dave Blazavich of Indiana picked up his first ever point title in the division. In the Townsend Gas and Oil Steel Block Late Models it was Shawn “Sheets” McGarvey of Coalport who won the feature and Gary Stahl of Johnstown who won the war.
In the Hugill Sales and Service Street Stocks Josh Jacoby of Fernwood won both the feature and the point title while John Mazey of Bolivar won the Brush Valley Tire Pure Stock feature with Marshall Detwiler of Roaring Spring winning the point championship and in the Texas Auto Ranch Four Cylinder Sidewinders it was Matt Shirk winning both the feature and the title.
In the super late models Matt Gaston and newcomer Brian Bernheisel led the field to the green flag with Gaston taking the lead and leaving his competitors in his dust. As he pulled away from the field, sixth place starter Rick Davis was headed to the front. Davis was second with Cody Schultz in third and Dave Blazavich in fourth.
Once Davis moved into second he began to reel in Gaston and was all over the leaders bumper, often side-by-side, but Gaston was always able to pull off a little extra burst of power and hold him off. At the waving of Kevin Smyers checkered flag it was all Gaston taking his fourth win of the season. Davis, Dave Padula, Darrell Dick and Chad McClellan completed the top five. Heat wins went to Rodney Phillips and Sam Stile.
Deciding who was going to win the steel block feature wasn’t decided until the checkered flag waved, as Mike Duck beat Jim Parson Jr. into the first turn at the start. Parson was on the bumper of Duck for two laps, but Chris Rhodes came out of third on lap three to take the lead. He was setting what appeared to be a rapid pace when Clate Copeman came from seventh to take the lead off turn four on lap seven.
As Copeman was leading Shawn McGarvey was looking for a way into the lead while sitting third, then on lap 14 McGarvey went to the outside of both Rhodes and Copeman in turn one. He had second off the second turn and was side-by-side with Copeman down the backstretch and into the third turn. When the duo exited turn four McGarvey had the lead. He was able to hold off the efforts of Rhodes who fought back but could not muster up the power to get the win. At the finish it was McGarvey with his third win of the season over Rhodes, Parson, Gary Stahl and Randy Smithley. Heat wins went to Clate Copeman, Randy Smithley and Shawn McGarvey.
Jim Boyer and Andy Burns led the street stock feature to the green with Boyer taking the lead and setting a torrid pace. By the fourth lap Boyer had about a straight-a-way lead over second place, but on lap eight Boyer was on the outside on the backstretch and a lapped car moved into his lane, Boyer went over the edge of the track and had to fight to keep from crashing. He regained control but that allowed Josh Jacoby and the rest of the field to reel in the leader. Then on lap 10 Jacoby went into the lead and held off Boyer who tried to regain the lead but ran out of time. The top five were Jacoby, Boyer, Nick Goss, Jeff Sweeney and Jim Britton. Heat wins went to Ron Hanna and Josh Jacoby.
Marshall Detwiler was trying to snap his winless drought this season, as he took the lead at the start of the pure stock feature and set the pace. He was holding off all challengers, until lap 11, when John Mazey began to battle for the lead and took the position off the fourth turn. Once Mazey had the lead he wasn’t seriously challenged as Detwiler held on for second with Rich Powell, Tim Laughard and Joe Zulisky completing the top five. Heat wins went to Tom Warren, Bryan Imler and Scott Lorenzo.
Matt Shirk led the four cylinder feature from green to checkered but his win wasn’t easy, as he had Jesse Laughard, Mark Maglet and Eric Hoover all challenging him for the lead, but when the checkered flag waved it was Shirk holding on in an ill-running car for his fourth win of the season. Hoover, Jay Schettini, Maglet and Dan Adams completed the top five. Mark Maglet, Jay Schettini and Nathan Good split the heat wins.

As he was leading the way the and held off first Peterman, then Bobby Stokes and Chad McClellan then Matt Gaston moved to second and he started to challenge the Hyde driver. Cautions on laps 19, 20 and 21 gave Gaston more chances and on lap 20, as another spin took place in turn two, Kevin Smyers threw the checked with a caution, but it was too late, as Gaston had moved past Schultz off the second turn and took his second straight win. Schultz was second, Steve Everhart was third, Johnny Kuzemchak was fourth and Robby Garlock was fifth. Heat wins went to Chad McClellan and Bobby Stokes.

FOUR NEW WINNERS VISIT DOG HOLLOW VICTORY LANE

STRONGSTOWN, PA - Four of the five features were won by first timers this Friday night at Dog Hollow Speedway as Texas Auto Ranch and Lias Racing Tires doubled up on the trophies. Matt Gaston of Punxsutawney topped the super late models, while Randy Smithley of Bolivar won the Townsend Gas and Oil Steel Block Late Model main. Tyler Hite of Duncansville won his first ever Brush Valley Tire Pure Stock main while Jon Forshey of Altoona copped the Texas Auto Ranch Four Cylinder Sidewinder main.
The only repeat winner was Josh Jacoby of Fernwood who won the Hugill Sales and Service Street Stock feature by disqualification.
The super late models took the track with Rick Davis and Dave Peterman on the front row. Peterman took the lead and he had Davis in second and Dave Blazavich third. While the top three were fighting to keep Cody Schultz out the lead, Matt Gaston was coming to the front from his 13th place starting position. By lap 10 Gaston had worked his way to third and was closing on both Davis and Peterman. Lap 18 saw Gaston move to second and he was on the bumper of Peterman.
As the pair exited turn four Peterman went high and Gaston went under him for the lead, but Peterman wasn’t done, he fought back and tried the bottom off turns three and four, then Gaston bobbled and Peterson dove low, they touched, both were out of shape, but Gaston recovered to take the win and Peterman held on for second. Davis was third, Rodney Phillips was fourth and Blazavich was fifth.. Heat wins went to Rick Davis, Dave Peterman and Matt Gaston.
The steel block late models were also exciting with Randy Smithley taking the lead at the start from fellow front row starter Jeff Weakland. Weakland was second and challenging early on, then Clate Copeman took second and challenged the leader most of the race. Smithley was too tough to tame as he took his first win of the season at the Hollow. Copeman was a close second, Weakland held on for third, Gary Stahl was fourth and John Wayne Weaver was fifth. Preliminary wins went to Randy Smithley and Jeff Weakland.
Matt Hugill looked to be headed for his first Dog Hollow street stock win as he took the lead at the start and held on through multiple challenges, first from Josh Jacoby and then Rusty Martz. As Hugill led, Martz and Jacoby ran side-by-side, but a caution slowed the race on lap nine and regrouped the field with a few laps to go. This allowed Martz to line up behind Hugill, and it was Martz who took the lead on lap 11 and held off the challenges of Hugill then Jacoby. Martz crossed the line first with Jacoby second. In a post race teardown, Martz was found to be running an illegal intake and was stripped of his win. Jacoby took the victory over Hugill, Jeff Sweeney, Ray Charles and Andy Burns. Heat wins went to Mike Laughard and Matt Hugill.
Door to door racing was also the order of action in the pure stocks as Tim Laughard took the lead and he was chased the whole time by Tyler Hite. Hite tried everything short of crashing the leader to take the top spot. He tried the outside, the inside and finally, with the assistance of a lapped car, Hite went to the outside and took the lead off the final turn on the final lap to earn his career first Dog Hollow victory. Laughard was a close second, Bryan Imler was third, Marshall Detwiler was fourth and Rich Powell was fifth. Heat wins went to Tim Laughard and Tyler Hite.
The four cylinder feature was anyone’s race as Josh Westley took the lead at the start with Jesse Laughard in second and Jon Forshey third. Westley held the lead until lap two when he crashed and was eliminated. This gave the lead to Laughard who had Forshey second and Jay Schettini third. Schettini was then the runner up as he took second and Forshey fell to third.
On lap five, Forshey took the lead from Laughard and began to set a torrid pace, with Schettini taking second on lap nine and Mark Faught moving to third then second. Faught and Schettini traded second and ran side-by-side several laps, allowing Forshey to take his first career win. The top five ended up as Forshey, Schettini, Faught, Mark Maglet and Paul Crynock III. Qualifying wins went to Josh Westley, Jon Forshey, Mark Faught and Jesse Laughard. The B main was won by Jim Laughard.
