26 YEARS LATER, EICHELBERGER WINS SECOND CAREER "SPORTSMAN 100";
Prunkl wins thundercars; Patterson leads every lap in street stocks


ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 9/16/06 - It was all Rich Eichelberger in the 32nd
Annual "Sportsman 100" at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.
Eichelberger, who ran second to Fred Putney in the first "Sportsman
100" 32 years ago and won his only other "100" in 1979, set fast time and
led the last 57 laps to claim the $4,000 top prize over the 40-car field.
Eichelberger started fourth after picking the inversion pill after
time trials, and ran fourth behind outside front row starter Dave Calaman,
third-starting Paul Miller, and polesitter Frankie Herr for the first 26
laps before getting by Herr for third place. He then ran down Paul Miller
to grab the runner-up spot on the backstretch of lap 35. At the time, last
year's winner Calaman enjoyed a 2.49-second lead as the front runners raced
through lapped traffic.
Eichelberger began to close the gap and made his race-winning pass
on lap 44. Seven laps later, Calaman lost second to Miller, just before a
caution came out for Geremy Strausser on turn four. During the caution,
Calaman dropped out of the race with no brakes.
After that, Eichelberger opened up a 4.32-second lead over Miller
and Herr by the time the mandatory red was thrown at the completion of the
65th lap. At the break, Gregg Foster and Carmen Perigo, Jr. were running
fourth and fifth.
When the race was restarted, Eichelberger picked up where he left
off. On lap 72, Herr got by Miller for second, and Foster closed on Miller
to start a 25-lap wheel-to-wheel battle for third. Herr closed on
Eichelberger in lapped traffic over the final laps, but crossed 1.5-seconds
behind the winner. Foster edged Miller for third, with 22nd-starting and
hard charger award winner Bobby Weaver crossing fifth. Completing the top
ten were Jason Fry, Perigo, Bobby Hockenberry, John Stehman, and Steve
Fannasy.
"It was a great night," said Eichelberger in victory lane, "I want
to thank the Leibys and Alan Kreitzer for making this the new home for the
'100'. The track was in great shape, and we had a lot of fun."
In addition to the winner's share, Eichelberger won $570 in lap
money provided by lap sponsors.
C-Mains were won by Weaver and Smokey Snellbaker, while Scott
Dellinger won the B-Main. Dellinger advanced from 15th starting spot to
fifth before hitting the outside guardrail exiting turn two of lap 80,
ending his night.
Fast time in time trials was set by Eichelberger with a one-lap time
of 15.838-seconds (85.238 MPH).

Sykesville, MD's David Prunkl scored his second win of the year in
the 20-lap thundercar feature. Prunkl started fourth, followed outside
front row starter and race long leader Al Cramer for the first four laps
before grabbing the point on lap five. He led the rest of the way, holding
off Cramer by .82-seconds for his 12th career win in the Pigeon Hills.
Craig Wagaman started sixth and finished third, with Mike Walls and Duane
Watson completing the top five. Sixth through tenth were Nat Tuckey, Bob
Bare, point leader Neil Smith, Danny Beard, and Sam Gallagher.
Watson's fifth-place finish combined with Smith's eighth-place
finished closed Watson to within 55 points of Smith with three points races
to go.
Heats for the 25 thundercars were won by Mike Walls, Tuckey and
Gallagher.

Shippensburg's Randy Patterson led every lap to claim the 20-lap
street stock feature. Running second through fifth from the second lap to
the end were Chad Smith, George Eash, Kory Sites, and Sam Leonard.
Heats for the 25 Street Stocks were won by Leonard, Kory Sites and
Smith.

Next Saturday night, September 23rd, Lincoln Speedway will once
again host the ANNUAL HANK GENTZLER MEMORIAL MANUFACTURERS APPRECIATION
NIGHT. In addition to thousands of dollars worth of manufacturers goods and
services for the race teams, Hank's Performance Products has arranged for

TROUT PASSES TWO ON LAST LAP FOR 5TH LINCOLN "358" WIN OF '06;
HAAS CLAIMS THIRD TRACK TITLE;
Lettich claims limited late model feature; Walls switches cars with Legum, wins thundercar main

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 9/2/06 - Fans can't say they didn't get their
money's worth at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.
With a track title on the line, 48 drivers from Lincoln's "358"
sprint division got together to put on their best show of the year in the
25-lap Championship event.
And on a night when they saved the best for last, three drivers
saved their best for the last turn of the last lap. In the end, Chad Trout
came from third to first in heavy lapped traffic on the final turns to claim
his fifth win of the year in the Pigeon Hills.
Time trials and qualifying events placed Trout eighth for the start.
Eight-fastest time trialer Adrian Shaffer started on the pole when Mark
Zellers failed to qualify in his heat and Eric Tomecek, the scheduled
polesitter, scratched from the feature event.
Shaffer grabbed the lead at the drop of the green and was scored the
leader of the first 24 laps. Fourth-starting Jeff Rohrbaugh, who locked up
the 2006 point title at Trail-Way Speedway with Friday night's rain out,
moved into the runner-up spot when he passed front row starter Billy Johns
on the sixth lap. Though he ran a distant second most of the race, he began
closing quickly on the leader as his motor starting smoking heavily over the
final three laps. Also closing on the leaders was Trout, who got by Johns
to move into third on lap eight.
The three leaders crossed under the white flag within a carlength of
each other, and Trout threaded the needle to go from third to first and
steal the win in the final two turns.
"With those guys in heavy lapped traffic, I had the advantage going
into the final turns," said the happy winner in victory lane, who
acknowledged that changing a defective tire gauge made the difference over
the second half of the season.
"People don't believe me, but the air gauge was all we changed over
the second half of the season. After we found it, other drivers came up to
me and said they had the same problem," added Trout, "Small things can
really screw up a program. It's not necessarily something big, but that's
the only thing we changed all season."
Trout's final margin of victory was less than a carlength over
Shaffer, with Rohrbaugh crossing third and then coming to a stop in turn
four with an expired motor after the checkered. Dale Hammaker and Adam Wilt
completed the top five, with Billy Johns sixth.
A seventh-place finish by Cory Haas was good enough to secure a
third track title at Lincoln, the first for car owner Mike Barshinger.
"We didn't having a good car in the feature," said Haas during his
track champ interview, "We were really tight, you had to be up on the wall,
and I wasn't going to take any chances tonight.
"We set fast time and made it through the heat, then just kinda
watched everybody real close in front of me, bided my time...and won a
championship. If it wasn't for Mike and Jason Barshinger, we wouldn't be
able to do this. They deserve all the credit in the world, and all of these
people that support this team made this a great year. It's my third, but
Mike's first at Lincoln, and we're proud of that."
Completing the top ten were Mike Bittinger, Todd Rittenhouse Jr.,
and Glenndon Forsythe.
358 sprint heats were won by Forsythe, Brad McClelland, Rohrbaugh
and Danny Dietrich. Steve Jorda won the C-Main while John Westbrook won the
B-Main.
Fast time in time trials over the 48-car field was set by Cory Haas
with a one-lap time of 14.574 seconds (92.631 MPH).

A really bad night turned around quickly for Dover's Jake Lettich in
the limited late model division. Lettich brought his car to the track on a
rollback when his rig broke down on the way to the race, and then borrowed
parts after a heat race incident. But bad went to good when first heat
winner Sterling Kinard drew a #12 pill for the inversion, putting him on the
pole for the 20-lap feature.
Good turned to great when no one could catch him. Even with an
ill-handling car, Lettich outran the rest of a talent-laden field to earn
his first-ever win at Lincoln.
Lettich grabbed the lead at the outset over outside front row
starter Bob Scott, Jr., then held off fourth-starting Bobby Beard from lap
three to the finish to register the .84-second win. Third through fifth
were Larry Baer, Daryl Burkholder, and Scott. Sixth through tenth were
Kinard, Roy Miller, Bernie Beard, Carl Billet, and Pat Beard.
Heats for the 34 Limited late models were won by Kinard, Carl
Graves, Chuck Yingling and Pat Beard, with Justin Ehrhart winning the
consolation.

Gettysburg's Mike Walls jumped in Doug Legum's thundercar and then
went out and held-off eight-time 2006 winner Gene Knaub and four-time winner
Nat Tuckey to pick up his second win of the season in yet another thrilling
20-lap thundercar feature.
Walls, who started seventh, chased-down outside frontrow starter and
race-long leader Al Crammer to take the lead on the fifth lap. But all eyes
turned back to Knaub who was charging from his eighth starting spot to move
into the runner-up spot on the second lap. Then 11th-starting Tuckey made
his charge to the front as well and made it a three-way battle for the lead
with eighth laps to go.
The three races raced side-by-side for several laps with Walls
continuing to lead as 10th-starting Duane Watson and 12th-starting Neil
Smith entered the mix as they raced side-by-side in there battle for the
track championship while running fourth and fifth as the final laps wound
down.
In the end, Walls was able to hold off Knaub by .84-seconds for his
20th career thundercar win at the Pigeon Hills oval.
Tuckey hung on for third, Watson fourth and Smith fifth. Completing
the top-10 were Cramer, David Prunkl, Mike Zeigler Jr., Sam Gallagher and
Bob Stough.
Heats for the 33 thundercars were won by Craig Wagaman, Walls and
Knaub, with Gallagher winning the consolation.

Next Saturday night, September 16th, Lincoln Speedway continues a
former Silver Spring Speedway tradition by hosting the ever-popular 32nd
Annual Sportsman 100.
Time trials, followed by C & B Mains will determine the starting
field for the traditional 100-lap contest.
Joining in the evening's festivities will be the thundercar regulars
who will continue to battle for the 2006 track championship. Rounding out
the evening's racing card are the street stocks.
Gates will open at 5 PM, with time trials for the super sportsman
getting underway at 7 PM.

"THE HAMMER" NEEDS ONE MORE NAIL TO SEAL THE LID ON TRACK TITLE;
Trout wins fourth in 358's; Watson sweeps Australian pursuit and feature in thundercars


ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 8/26/06 - Doug "the Hammer" Esh took a giant
next-to-last step in his quest for his first Lincoln Speedway Cindy Rowe
Auto Glass track title by claiming his sixth win of the season in non-stop
fashion Saturday night.
Esh, who started 10th, chased down outside front row starter and
race-long leader Steve Clabaugh to take the lead on the 20th lap and raced
away from Brian Leppo over the final laps to take the checkered six minutes,
50.97-seconds after the original drop of the green to register his 15th
career win at the lightning-fast high-banked 3/8th-mile oval.
Coupled with second-place Niki Young's 13th-place finish and Fred
Rahmer's third place finish, Esh increased his point lead with only one
point race to go.
"Two weeks ago Dennis (Kohler) said to just keep doing what you are
doing," said a happy Esh after climbing down from his famous wing dance in
victory lane, "He said don't get yourself all screwed up with the points.
Let the points fall where they do, and if you keep winning races, we'll be
okay, just don't go out there and get timid."
"You're still thinking about the big picture in the back of your
head, but I wanted to win the race," continued Esh, "This is just awesome. I
can't believe it."
The Kinard Trucking/C.W. Fritz Company/Bankowitch
Countertops/Butcher Motorsports #30 started tenth and entered the top five
as both he and fourth-place Brian Leppo passed fourth-starting Sam
Schlosberg on lap 11. A lap later, third-place Jeff Busby got out of shape
and lost several positions, with Leppo and Esh moving into third and fourth.

Leader Steve Clabaugh and second-place Judd Shepard hit lapped
traffic on lap 13, and Leppo grabbed second from Shepard a lap later. Esh
caught Shepard for third on lap 15, then squeezed between second-place Leppo
and Clabaugh for the race lead as all three cars entered turn three of lap
20.
"I knew Brian (Leppo) was getting antsy a little there behind Steve
(Clabaugh) and wanted to get by him and the lapped car," said Esh on the
race for the lead. "As soon as he peeled off, I knew he was in trouble.
Steve's been real tough, but we reeled him in, so I figured we were a little
bit better."
"Steve's a great guy. He just flips coins for his set-up. But he's
going real good. And it's great to see Greg Hodnett back. It's so nice to
have him back with us.
Once in front, Esh drove away to a 1.619-second win over Leppo, with
12th-starting Fred Rahmer coming on strong over the last five laps to cross
third, Brian Montieth passing Clabaugh on the next-to-last lap to finish
fourth, and Clabaugh settling for fifth. Sixth through tenth were
Schlosberg, Greg Hodnett, Shepard, Jim Siegel, and Busby.
All 20 "410" sprinters on hand finished the non-stop event, 16 of
the 20 on the lead lap.
"Our crew is so strong and we're talking about plans for next year
already," said Esh. "I don't know where that's going to end up, but
hopefully it's stronger than what we got now, and we'll see if we can get
another one."
Doug Esh can wrap his first-ever "410" sprint track title by taking the
green flag in next week's final points race of the year for the 410's in the
Pigeon Hills.
Heats for the "410 sprints were won by Shepard and Leppo (his
division-leading 10th of the year).

Felton's Chad Trout stormed to his fourth win of the year in the
20-lap "358" sprint feature. Trout started 11th and needed only eight laps
to drive around fourth-starting Joe Trone, Jr. for the race lead.
Polesitter Scott Glover did a wheelie, caught the outside guardrail,
and flipped on the front stretch while leading as he was coming down to
complete lap two. Second-starting Jason Cherry assumed the lead for the
restart, but could hold it only one lap before yielding to Trone on lap
three.
Trout took to the top side at the start and was running fourth by
the end of the third lap. He caught Cherry for third on lap four, passed
Nathan Berwager for the runner-up spot on lap five, and then tracked down
Trone over the next three laps before grabbed the lead exiting turn four to
complete the eighth lap.
It was Trout's ninth career win in the Pigeon Hills, moving him into
a tie for third with Greg Leiby on Lincoln's all-time "358" sprint win list.
Jeff Rohrbaugh came from 11th starting spot to cross second, with
Trone holding on for third (his best ever Lincoln 358 sprint finish), Bob
Anderson fourth, and Brad McClelland fifth. Completing the top ten were
Berwager, Mike Lehman, Glenndon Forsythe, Derek Locke, and Bob Howard.
Heats for the 35 "358" sprints were won by Rick Horn, Glover, and
Trone, with Cory Haas winning the consolation. Lincoln points leader Haas
flipped in turn three of the initial start, ending his night. Dale Hammaker
was unable to capitalize, however, caught up in a crash later in the race
and credited with a 20th-place finish.

Duane Watson won both the special Australian pursuit race and the
20-lap feature in the thundercar division. The pursuit race and feature
victories were his first of the season since opening day.
Watson, who started 11th, inherited the lead when race-leader Mike
Walls suddenly slowed with mechanical problems on the 12th lap and then
survived a wild battle with Craig Wagaman for the lead in the final turns to
the checkered for his 10th career thundercar win in the 20-lap thundercar
feature. Wagaman made a last ditch attempt for the lead on the final lap and
tried to slide up in front of Watson exiting the final turn to the checker
resulting in contact which sent Wagaman spinning into the inside guardrail.
Watson then held off Nate Tuckey by .28 seconds for win a one-lap
dash to the checkered.
Point leader Neil Smith came from his 19th starting position to
finish third, with Mike Zeigler Jr. Fourth and Jim Martz Jr. fifth.
Completing the top-10 were Bob Allen, Mike Slaybaugh, Ronnie Thomas, Bob
Bare and Mark Scott.
Heats for the 28 thundercars were won by Greg Emlet Jr., Wagaman
and Tuckey, with Josh Schrum winning the consolation.
Earlier in the evening the top-10 in thundercar points went after
over $1,500 in prize money in a special 10-lap Australian Pursuit which saw
them inverted by points and would be eliminated by any pass on the track
over the course of the special race. Watson, who started ninth, bided his
time through the wildly-entertaining crowd-pleasing affair and held off
Smith in a final lap scramble to take home the $425 dollar top prize.
Bob Bare was eliminated on the final lap yet finished a strong third
place with Gino Comi and Mike Slaybaugh completing the top-five.

Next Saturday night, September 2nd, the Cindy Rowe Auto Glass 410
Sprinters will compete in there finale point race of 2006 in the special
Labor Day holiday weekend show at the Pigeon Hills oval. Joining them will
be the ever-popular Super Sportsman who will be competing in there final
tune-up race before the running of there annual Sportsman 100 on September
16th.

Layton passed Judd Shepard exiting the fourth turn of the 14th lap
and then held-off one of the hottest drivers in Central Pennsylvania, Doug
Esh, over the final laps to record his eighth overall win of 2006. The
victory moved the Harrisburg driver into a tie with Esh atop the win leader
chart for the season in 410 sprint action at the Pigeon Hills oval.
"I can't say enough about this team," said Layton upon exiting his
York Excavating/Apple Dealerships/York Building Products/Sterner Cement
No.12 in victory lane. "Mike Goss, Todd, Lee, Bob Stewart...these guys give
me a great race car. I've let them down a lot, and I'm just trying to find
it and be a better racer and get this thing to the front where it belongs,
where it's been before, and hopefully where it's heading again."
Defending Lincoln champ Fred Rahmer, back from his 12th-place finish
at the Knoxville Nationals, was out from the start, collected in a five-car
crash in turn one of the first lap. Other cars involved were Kyle Pruitt,
Brian Montieth, Phil Weinsteiger, and Pat Cooper. Rahmer, Pruitt, and
Weinsteiger were all done for the night.
On the complete restart, outside front row starter Steve Clabaugh
grabbed the lead over polesitter Judd Shepard at the outset of the 25-lap
feature and led the first seven laps before Shepard finally got around the
Bonneauville racer for the top-spot on the eighth lap.
Meanwhile Layton was methodically working his way through the field
to pass Weaver, then Clabaugh to move into second place by the 12th lap.
All the while, Shepard was building a 1.89-second lead.
A spin by Eric Stambaugh in the fourth turn of the 13th lap closed
the field onto the Upperco, Maryland racer's bumper for the restart, with
10th-starting Doug Esh entering the picture in third place.
Shepard led the next lap and three-quarters until Layton drove
around the Advance Excavating/Steger Construction/Shepard's Service Center
No.3J exiting turn four of lap 14. Shortly after the race-winning pass,
Cody Darrah spun and collected the cars of Brian Leppo, Brian Montieth, and
Stambaugh in turn two.
On the restart, Esh blew around Shepard to move into the runner-up
spot. The final caution of the event came out on lap 20, when Jonathan
Ericksen got backwards on turn two, setting up a six-lap dash to the
checkered.
Layton quickly pulled away on the restart, opened up a 1.57-second
lead with five laps to go, and cruised to the .59-second win. Michael
Carber came from seventh starting spot to finish third, with Alan Krimes
coming from 13th to finish fourth and Niki Young coming from 14th to finish
fifth. Completing the top ten were Bobby Weaver, Jim Siegel, Jeff Busby,
Darrah, and Stambaugh.
"This was a heck of a win," Layton quickly added. "I saw him (Esh)
there and pretty much knew he would be running second. He had me
sweating...he's been going real good."
"I've been letting these guys down lately," said Layton, "I just
need to find it within me...I'm still a little new at this 410 sprint deal,
but they say I'm a veteran. Compared to the guys that are really getting it
done. I'm still a little wet behind the ears, so I'm just trying to work
harder and make myself a better racer."
Heats for the 21 "410 sprints were won by Darrah and Shepard.

Rod Kistler bested a talented field of Central PA Legends to win the
15-lap Central PA INEX Legends feature. Kistler came from fourth starting
spot to pass outside front row starter and race-long leader Steve
Nederosteck on lap four. Despite heavy pressure from a charging Ronnie
Dunstan (who started eighth) over the final three laps, Kistler led the rest
of the way to cover the 15 laps in 5 minutes, 19.38 seconds.
Dunstan was second, with Nederosteck third, Josh Morrow fourth, and
Brian Levan fifth.
Heats for the 35 Legends were won by Rick Potts, Dunstan and Randy
Kissinger, with Mark Schaffer winning the consolation.

Nat Tuckey claimed his fourth win of the year and the $700 that went
with it in the 20-lap thundercar championship event. Race-night sponsor
Kline's Services added $250 to the posted $350 winner's share, and Larry
Baer from Baer's Paving & Sealing in Dover added $100 to each of the top
five spots in the feature.
Tuckey started 12th and worked his way into third just behind the
battle for the lead between David Prunkl and eight-time winner Gene Knaub on
the 11th lap.
As Knaub attempted to clear Prunkl for the race-leading pass exiting
turn four of lap 14, contact between the two sent Knaub spinning and Prunkl
to the rear for aggressive driving. Tuckey assumed the lead for the restart
and was never challenged, crossing .81-seconds in front of second-place Mike
Slaybaugh. The win was the 14th of Tuckey's career in the Pigeon Hills,
moving him into sole possession of 10th-place on the all-time win list.
Third through fifth were Duane Watson, Smoke Christine, and Danny
Beard.
Heats for the 27 thundercars were won by Gino Comi, Prunkl and Jim
McBee, with Nate Topper winning the consolation.

Next Saturday night, August 26th, it will be PEPSI NIGHT/ARCH NIGHT
with all three point divisions in action - the Cindy Rowe Auto Glass 410
Sprints, 358 Sprints & Thundercars. The night will also include an
Australian Pursuit Race for the thundercars, with more than $1,200 being
divided between the top ten thundercars in points. In addition to $2 off
general admission at the gate for ARCH members, all fans and participants
with commercial driver licenses will get $2 off general and pit admission,
courtesy of Kinard Trucking, as the York company recognizes National
Truckers Appreciation Week.
Gates will open at 5:30 PM with racing action getting underway at
7:30 PM.

LEPPO DRIVES AWAY FROM FIELD FOR FIRST '06 WIN IN LINCOLN "410" SPRINT MAIN;
Forsythe claims second win in 358's; Knaub storms to 8th Lincoln win in thundercars


ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 8/12/06 - One would be hard-pressed to find anyone
in the "410" sprint ranks more desperate for a win than Brian Leppo. And
at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night, he got it. In convincing fashion.
The H&H Contractors/Jay's Lawn and Landscaping/Heather's Nails &
Tanning/York Floor #71 started fourth, moved past Jeff Busby into the
runner-up spot on lap two, and then chased down polesitter and race-long
leader Steve Clabaugh over the next seven laps before moving to the top side
and taking the lead in turns three and four of lap nine. From there, it was
all Leppo, as he raced out to huge leads twice, crossing 5.9-seconds ahead
of Clabaugh, whose runner-up finish was the best of his "410" sprint career.
It was Leppo's third career win in the Pigeon Hills, but his first
since returning to his own race car last year. Despite nine heat wins in
'06, Leppo has suffered terrible luck in feature events this season.
"It's been a long year," said a happy Leppo in victory lane, "I lost
some confidence last year, and had a lot going on...then this year I had a
lot of stress on me. There's been a lot of reasons. I just had a son. He's
five months old, and probably in bed. It's just been a long year."
"We decided to do things on our own. I have a crew chief Lee Myers
and he's just learning like we are. But I got a good crew and they're hard
working. Our car's definitely gotten better over the last few weeks, but I
just haven't gotten the job done. This definitely feels good, and that's
what it is all about."
Eighth-starting Eric Stambaugh, another driver who has had back
racing luck so far this year, completed a good run with a third-place
finish, followed by Josh Wells and 19th-starting Doug Esh, who flipped in
his heat and came through the feature field to take the points lead from
Fred Rahmer, who was racing in the "A" main at the Knoxville Nationals.
"This was one of them things where I had to take advantage of a
couple of fast cars not being there," added Leppo, "But this field never has
slow cars. They're always fast...you just have to beat them to the front.
Clabaugh did a hell-of-a job. He ended up second and drove a nice race.
Things just went my way. He left me a lane and I got by him and just kind of
drove away. I know you can't settle for running second and just kind of hope
for the pass," Leppo said. "He just gave me a lane and I took advantage of
it and things worked out our way today."
Sixth through tenth were Alan Krimes (who came from the back after
being collected in a turn three and four crash on the second lap), Busby,
Niki Young, Michael Carber, and Jim Siegel.
Heats for the 22 "410 sprints were won by Carber and Leppo.

Former Lincoln "410" regular Glenndon Forsythe piloted the Roger
McKeehan #4R to his second win of the year in the 20-lap "358" sprint
feature.
Forsythe, slated for a ninth starting spot, moved up a row for the
restart when front row starters Scott Glover, Jr. And Joe Trone, Jr. spun
simultaneously in turn two of the opening lap. He moved past new polesitter
Tim Wagaman to enter the top five on lap five, caught front row starter
Scott Ellerman a lap later, passed Chad Trout for third on lap eight, and
then followed fourth-starting Chad Criswell and sixth-starting Danny
Dietrich as they battled for the lead on laps nine and ten.
Dietrich took the top spot on lap 11, and one lap later Forsythe
grabbed the runner-up spot from Criswell. He caught Dietrich on lap 15 and
led the rest of the way. Dietrich came to a stop while running second on
lap 19, bringing out the only caution of the event after three tries at the
start.
Trout assumed second and finished there, with Cory coming from 10th
spot on the original restart to cross third, Criswell settling for fourth
and Wagaman fifth. Completing the top ten were Bob Howard, Jeff Rohrbaugh,
Steve Owings, 20th-starting Mike Bittinger, and Bob Anderson.
Heats for the 38 "358" sprints were won by Glover, Wagaman, Haas
and Owings, with Dale Hammaker and Todd Rittenhouse Jr. winning twin
consolations.

Dover's Gene Knaub continued his winning ways in thundercar
competition by picking up his eighth win of the season in there 20-lap
feature.
Knaub, who started fifth, moved into fourth on the fifth lap and
passed both David Prunkl and Danny Beard to move into the runner-up spot on
the sixth lap. Then after appearing to take the lead twice from outside
frontrow starter and race-long leader Smoke Christine following two
consecutive cautions on the seventh lap, Knaub made his pass for the lead
stick on the seventh lap and then outraced the field the rest of the way to
take the checkered 7.48-seconds ahead for his sixth win in the last eight
races.
In a wild battle for second through fifth, ninth-starting Sam
Gallagher made a last lap, last turn pass to beat Danny Beard for the spot,
with Prunkl ending up fourth and Nat Tuckey fifth. Completing the top-10
were Mike Slaybaugh, Bob Stough, Gino Comi, Duane Watson and Bob Bare.
Heats for the 22 thundercars were won by Stough and Prunkl.

Next Saturday night, August 19th, will be another special night at
the Pigeon Hills' lightning-fast one-third-mile high-banked oval as it will
be KLINE SERVICES NIGHT with the Cindy Rowe Auto Glass 410 Sprints and
Thundercar regulars being joined by the ever-popular INEX Legends. For the
thundercars, they will race in there annual Thundercar Championship. In
addition, the kids will compete in there final Kids Big Wheel race event of
2006. Capping-off the evening's racing action will be a spectacular
Fireworks display courtesy of KLINES SERVICES who will celebrate there
evening's sponsored night with over a hundred of there employees in
attendance.

RAHMER AND KRIMES SPLIT CENTRAL MARYLAND POOLS TWIN 20'S AT LINCOLN;
Knaub wins seventh of the year in thundercars


ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 8/5/06 - Fred Rahmer ended a Lincoln win dry spell
by claiming his 147th career win, but it was Alan Krimes who had the best
night with a second and a first in the Central Maryland Pools Twin 20's for
the "410" sprint cars at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.
The Denver driver started beside Rahmer on the inside of row five
when Rahmer picked the #10 pill for the inversion to start the second
feature. He assumed fifth for a second-lap restart when Rahmer came to a
stop with front-end damage after striking the back of Niki Young's mount on
the back stretch of the second lap. Rahmer, who won the first of the Twin
20's, was done for the rest of the night.
During the caution, third-place Doug Esh (who came from eighth to
third on the first lap), came to a stop with ignition problems on turn one,
ending his night.
All the while, polesitter Sam Schlosberg (who finished tenth in the
first feature), was leading. He paced the field for the first ten laps
before Krimes raced around him in lapped traffic exiting turn four of lap 11.
One lap earlier, Krimes did the same thing to second-place Brian
Montieth to grab the runner-up spot.
After gaining the lead, Krimes raced away to an impressive
4.48-second win, his second in three weeks and the second of his career
(both coming at Lincoln in 2006). Meanwhile, several drivers joined the
battle for second, with seventh-starting Chad Layton coming on late to pass
Schlosberg on lap 19 and cross second. Schlosberg hung on for third, with
Brian Leppo and Niki Young completing the top five. Sixth through tenth
were Bobby Weaver, Montieth, Josh Wells, Cory Haas, and Steve Clabaugh (who
finished tenth in both events).
"Ever since we put this car together, we've been getting around this
place super fast," said Krimes of the car and motor put together by his dad
(Larry) and uncle, "The first race Rahmer got by me and I knew whoever got
to the front first was probably going to win it."
"This car comes off the corners like a rocket ship," continued
Krimes, "I just pulled it as hard as I could getting out of the turns. It
makes my job a lot easier. When we put this new car together, it was like
turning on a light switch."

Winless in the Pigeon Hills since claiming his third win in four
weeks back on May 20th, Rahmer wasted little time getting to the front in
the first feature. Scheduled to start 12th, Rahmer slid up a row when
Michael Carber stopped on the track with an unlocked steering wheel as the
cars were lining up to begin the first feature. Carber lost his sixth
starting spot and went to the rear.
The J&S Fabrication/Macri Concrete/Miller Brothers Chevrolet #22
used the top and middle of the track to sort through heavy traffic, and was
up to third by the time an early red flag came out for a five-car crash that
involved the flipping Mike Bittinger on lap three. Bittinger, making his
Lincoln 410 debut in the CMP/KC Automotive/Scott's Signs #12, was uninjured.

Rahmer drove around polesitter Billy Kimmel on the third-lap
restart, then slid under race-long leader Brian Leppo to move to the post
entering turn three of lap four. Rahmer stayed on the low side to lead the
rest of the way, despite heavy pressure from ninth-starting Alan Krimes over
the second half of the race. Krimes, riding the cushion through every turn,
drove side-by-side with Rahmer on each end of the speedway between laps 12
and 18 until Rahmer used lapped cars to his advantage and cross 1.14-seconds
ahead of Krimes.
"We were fortunate to move up a row at the start, but we have a lot
of work to do yet," said Rahmer in victory lane, "I've been supplied with
everything we need to win, and I just haven't been getting the job done.
Hopefully, we can get things going and get turned around here."
"Alan was very quick. I knew that, and saw him coming on the
bottom, and that's why I went to the bottom there," added Rahmer, "He's been
running exceptionally well, and obviously Doug (Esh) been driving superb."
Krimes settled for second, with 11th-starting Doug Esh crossing
third, Chad Layton fourth, and Niki Young fifth (the first of two top five
finishes on the night). Leppo, Montieth, Wells, Schlosberg, and Clabaugh
completed the top ten.
It was Rahmer's fourth win at Lincoln, tenth '06 win overall, and
147th career win at Lincoln, pulling him to within three of Steve Smith's
all-time win record.
Heats for the 27 "410 sprints were won by Leppo, Esh and Carber,
with Eric Stambaugh winning the consolation.

Dover's Gene Knaub found his way back to victory lane for a seventh
time this year in the 20-lap thundercar feature, run between the sprint car
20-lappers.
Knaub started fifth and passed outside front row starter David
Prunkl on lap nine. He led the rest of the way, with points leader and
12th-starting Neil Smith coming through the field to cross second, 11th
starting Nat Tuckey third, Prunkl settling for fourth, and 14th starting Sam
Gallagher fifth. Sixth through tenth were Duane Watson, Mike Slaybaugh,
Danny Beard, Bob Stough, and Bob Bare.
Heats for the 24 thundercars were won by Prunkl, Knaub and Watson.

Next Saturday night, August 12th, it will be YORK COUNTY RACING CLUB
NIGHT with $2 off general admission tickets to all card-holding club
members. All three point divisions will be in action - the Cindy Rowe Auto
Glass 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints & Thundercars. Gates for the evening's racing
action will open at 5:30 PM, with racing action getting underway at 7:30 PM.

ESH HAS THE DRIVE TO SURVIVE, CLAIMS 5TH LINCOLN MAIN OF '06;
Trout wins third of year in "358" sprints; Wagaman ends Knaub streak in
Flooring Outlaw thundercar special


ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 7/29/06 - With a nickname of "The Hammer," one
would think that Doug Esh would be motivated all the time. But the Lancaster
driver showed even more determination this week, as he joined the ranks of
full-time racers and picked up his second win in as many nights after losing
his full-time job earlier in the week.
Esh survived a near disastrous opening lap which saw he and several
cars bounce off each other on the backstretch, then raced through the field
to pass Sam Schlosberg for the lead on the 14th lap and hold off Alan Krimes
in a final two-lap dash to the checkered to record his fifth win of the year
in the 25-lap 410 sprint feature at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.
The win came on the heels of his win the night before at Williams
Grove Speedway, where he revealed he had decided to become a full-time racer
after losing his day job, making him two-for-two in races since deciding to
support his family full-time in racing.
"Fred (Rahmer) and I talked before the races tonight, and he said I
wasn't that good last night," said Esh in victory lane. "I said 'No I really
wasn't,' but he said you're just driving harder than everybody else."
"You know I'm on a mission. I never thought I'd support my family
with racing. If anybody needs a grunt and can pay cash, I'm in," Esh said
with a laugh, "It's such an opportunity to drive for Dick and Leslie
(Leach). They are such great people. They're behind me 120 percent, and
that's why I try to give them 120 percent. I think I'm driving with more
determination than most because I have to. And sometimes that can put you in
trouble. But Dennis (Kohler) has got the car right, and I drive a little
above what I should be driving."
Esh started 11th and was shuffled back several spots when the cars
bunched up and several cars made contact with each other on lap one. He
recovered and was running tenth when the first caution of the race came out
for second-place Steve Clabaugh, who spun out in turn four on lap six.
During the caution, points leader Fred Rahmer (who had advanced from
12th starting spot) stopped on the track while running fifth. The car just
shut off and Rahmer was pushed into the pits. Rahmer did not make it out in
time for the restart, but got a break when second-place Judd Shepard and
third-place Brian Leppo got together and spun into the outside wall on turn
three. Rahmer pushed out during the caution and rejoined the field in 21st.
He advanced through the field to finish eighth at the end.
Sam Schlosberg became the third leader of the race when he passed
Clabaugh on lap four and led through the first two cautions and a subsequent
yellow on lap nine. Esh advanced several positions to move into the top
five on lap seven, made a key pass to get by Alan Krimes for sixth on lap
eight, and caught Jim Seigel for third on lap nine. When he got by Eric
Stambaugh for second on lap 11, Schlosberg enjoyed a 1.14-second lead. But
it didn't last long.
Esh closed on Schlosberg and took to what little remained of the
cushion to drive around the Green Lane Auto Sales/Shop 1 sprinter on lap 13
and led the rest of the way.
Krimes followed Esh through the field from his 13th starting spot
and got by Schlosberg for second on lap 18. With Esh driving through lapped
traffic, Krimes was closing on the leader until a caution came out for a
spinning Schlosberg in turns one and two. Esh pulled away on the restart,
and crossed 1.10-seconds ahead of the Conestoga Valley Garage #87, with
Brian Montieth third, Eric Stambaugh fourth, and Niki Young fifth.
Completing the top ten were Chad Layton, Josh Wells, Rahmer, Siegel, and
Michael Carber.
"Alan Krimes is just incredible right now," said Esh.,"I knew when
he got to second I had to use the bottom up because that's where he likes to
run. He's just a great racer, and has come a long way." "I told my
kids when I walked in tonight that I was going to win this them," said Esh
after his traditional victory lane top wing-dance salute to the fans. "It
was so nice to have the kids here...we're headed to the beach in a couple
hours, where we'll take a week off and come back to the races Friday."
"We got pinched rubbing on a race car," said Esh on the wild first
lap tangle on the backstretch. "I don't know what happened...Brian just got
crossed up a little bit and got together with somebody, and he didn't know I
was there and I lost a bunch of spots."
"But I knew we had a good enough car to get back up through. Dennis
has got the car so nice, and the crew just worked their butts off all day
long just to put me in a good race car."
Heats for the 25 "410 sprints were won by Rahmer, Judd Shepard and
Esh.

Felton's Chad Trout raced to his third win in the last four weeks in
the crash-marred 20-lap "358" sprint feature, moving to the front quickly
from his tenth starting spot and taking the lead from Dan Carrozza on the
sixth lap. After getting through a seven-car crash in turns three and four
of lap one, Trout was out front and unaffected by an 8-car melee on the
backstretch of lap nine that saw both Adam Wilt and Matt Boland flip.
Richard Janney was a flip victim on the first lap, but the six other
cars were able to continue. The ninth-lap red took out seven of the eight
cars involved, with only Joe Ilg able to continue.
One of the cars involved in the first-lap tangle was Cory Haas, who
went to the back and came through the field to move past Jeff Rohrbaugh into
second on lap 16. Haas slid under Trout to take the lead entering turn one
of a 19th-lap restart, but he jumped the cushion, hit the wall, and came to
a stop against the outside guardrail exiting turn two.
Jimmy Layton crossed second, with Rohrbaugh settling for third, Dale
Hammaker fourth, and Brad McClelland (who came through the consolation and
was also involved in the first-lap crash) fifth. Completing the top ten
were Carrozza, Billy Dietrich, Nate Berwager, Todd Rittenhouse, Jr., and Jay
Galloway.
Heats for the 42 "358" sprints were won by Mike Bittinger, Chad
Jumper, Wilt and Carrozza, with Rittenhouse and McClelland winning twin
consolations.

Gettysburg's Craig Wagaman put on the show of the year in the 20-lap
thundercar feature by holding-off six-time 2006 winner Gene Knaub for 16
straight laps to win the special $700-to-win 20-lap Flooring Outlaw feature.
Wagaman, who started eighth, was able to get by fourth-starting Gene
Knaub on the opening lap to move into fourth while third-starting Danny
Beard took the lead at the outset of the feature. Wagaman passed
fifth-starting Al Crammer for third on the second lap, and then outside
frontrow starter Smoke Christine on the fourth lap to move into second.
Wagaman then passed Beard for the lead on the fifth lap as Knaub followed
his every move and moved into second right behind the leader on the same lap.
From there Wagaman drove the cushion to the wall every lap with
Knaub running the bottom line in every turn pulling along side. But in the
end Wagaman was able to hold on for a slim .28-second win over Knaub, ending
Knaub's two-race win streak, and earned Wagaman $700 for his fourth overall
win in the Pigeon Hills in 2006. The win was also Wagaman's 25th career
thundercar win at Lincoln.
Points leader Neil Smith came from his 12th starting spot to battle
with the leaders in the closing laps and finished third, with 10th-starting
Nat Tuckey fourth and 19th-starting Mike Walls in fifth. Completing the
top-10 were Beard, Christine, Bob Bare, Sam Gallagher and Mike Slaybaugh.
Heats for the 30 thundercars were won by Knaub, Crammer and
Gallagher, with Walls winning the consolation.

It's a big night of racing at Lincoln Speedway next Saturday night,
August 5th, as the 410 sprinters, along with Central Maryland Pools (CMP)
bring back an old fan favorite - Twin 20-Lap Features at 7:30 PM. Each of
the 20-lap features will pay $2,500-to-win, along with a regular thundercar
racing program. Gates for the evening's racing action will open at 5:30 PM,

ALAN KRIMES CLAIMS FIRST CAREER 410 WIN IN LINCOLN GOHN MEMORIAL;
Glenndon Forsythe bests 358's in McKeehan mount; Knaub scores fifth of year in thundercars


ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 7/15/06 - First time wins are always special. And
when you follow your father's footsteps and add you name to the same
winners' list, it makes it even better.
Denver's Alan Krimes picked up his first career 410 sprint win in
the 25 lap 410 sprint feature at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.
Krimes, who started ninth, charged through the field to pass
race-long leader Brian Leppo on the 16th lap and then raced away from
nine-time track champion Fred Rahmer over the final laps to pick up the
popular win in the Annual Daryl Gohn/Glenn Gohn Sr. Memorial. In the
process, he joined his father Larry Krimes (who has three career sprint wins
at the Pigeon Hills oval) to become only the fifth father-son driver combo
to be winners in the storied history of the Abbottstown oval.
"I won a few races here in the 358's, but it feels nothing like
beating the Central Pennsylvania guys in the 410's here," Krimes said with a
big smile, "They're the best local competition in the country, and to beat
them feels real good."
"My dad used to race back here in the late 70's and early 80's. I
don't remember too much about it because I was just a little guy sleeping up
there in the bleachers. He won three time here one year and I've really got
to thank him because without him, I wouldn't be able to do this. I've got to
thank my crew and especially my dad's brother Butch who is helping us put
the engines together while we're busy working on the car."
Polesitter Leppo grabbed the lead over outside frontrow starter Sam
Schlosberg at the drop of the green with third-starting Jim Siegel quickly
moving into second by the end of the first lap.
From there, the laps were hard to come by. Three cautions and a red
flag plagued the first four laps of the event. First a Jeff Busby spin
brought out the caution on the third lap. That was followed by a red in a
wild eight-car melee which saw Phil Weinsteiger and Todd Zinn flip in turns
three and four, collecting Brian Montieth, Bobby Weaver, Busby, Danny
Murray, Kyle Pruitt and Johnny Mackison Jr. On the subsequent restart,
Montieth came to a stop with a broken drive line after trying to come back
from the earlier accident.
Leppo and Siegel led the field over the next two laps before the
caution waved again, this time for a Josh Wells and Schlosberg tangle on the
frontstretch while battling for fourth.
All the while, Krimes was methodically driving up through the field
and restarted in fourth place behind Leppo, Siegel and Michael Carber.
Krimes worked his way around Carber into third place on the seventh lap and
then got by Siegel into second on the 10th lap as Leppo enjoyed a
comfortable 2.55-second lead.
Krimes quickly erased Leppo's advantage by the time they headed into
lapped traffic on the 15th lap, and slipped under the Spring Grove racer
exiting the fourth turn of the 16th lap for the lead.
A lap later, fourth-running Eric Stambaugh got into the first and
second turn wall, collecting sixth-running Doug Esh in the process, sending
Stambaugh into a roll to bring out the red flag once again.
On the restart, Kyle Pruitt brought out the final red flag as he
flipped in the second turn.
When all was said and done, Krimes was the leader with Leppo,
Siegel, Rahmer, Niki Young and Chad Layton following for the final nine-lap
dash to the checkered.
While Krimes continued to run the low groove on the restart, all
eyes looked back at 146-time Lincoln Speedway winner Rahmer, who passed
Siegel for third on the 17th lap, and then drove around Leppo for second
with three laps to go.
"We started ninth tonight, which I thought was back pretty far with
all the fast guys right on my tail and there was a lot of good cars in front
of me," said Krimes, "This car works so good on the bottom of the track
here, and I was just coming off the turns so much better than anybody else
and it just drove by them."
"It kind of makes it easy really. Running the bottom is a lot easier
than running the top. Fred Rahmer told me that one time...and he's pretty
smart."
Krimes took the checkered 3.63 seconds ahead of Rahmer for his
inaugural 410 sprint win.
"We just put this car together right before Speedweek and we've been
a rocket ship. The other one we were running with was bent up a little bit,
and we never noticed it...ever since, we've put this car together we've been
fast."
"Unfortunately I was too young to know those guys," said Krimes on
the race's namesake - Daryl Gohn and Glenn Gohn Sr.. "But anytime somebody
has a race named after them, they must have been a hell of a guy. And the
crowd's been unbelievable here for the last three or four weeks, and it
makes it all that much more fun to hear them screaming and yelling
stuff...that makes you feel good."
Leppo hung on for third and was followed by Niki Young and Chad
Layton to round out the top five.
Completing the top ten were Siegel, Doug Esh, Judd Shepard, Cody
Darrah and Steve Clabaugh.
"It looks like our sport is in real good hands," Krimes added. "On
that one restart I was running forth and it was Brian Leppo, Siegel, Carber
and me...and I thought man, they're some young guns running up towards the
front here, and a bunch of other guys that moved up through the 358 ranks."
Heats for the 25 "410" sprinters were won by Wells, Leppo and
Stambaugh, with Todd Rittenhouse Jr. winning the consolation.

Former Lincoln 410 regular Glenndon Forsythe proved he still knows
the fast way around Lincoln in claiming the 20-lap "358" sprint feature.
Forsythe started fifth and wasted little time in moving to the front,
driving under race-long leader Jessie Morrison for the top spot exiting turn
two on an eighth-lap restart and leading the rest of the way.
Tenth-starting Brad McClelland worked his way through the field to
move into second on lap nine and pressured Forsythe the rest of the way, but
could never make the pass for the lead. He settled for second, with Nate
Berwager crossing a career-best third, Dale Hammaker coming from 21st
starting spot to finish fourth, and Danny Dietrich fifth. Completing the
top ten were 20th-starting Nate Hammaker, Rory Janney, Morrison, Derek
Locke, and Jimmy Layton.
Heats for the 37 "358" sprinters were won by Berwager, Danny
Dietrich, Dan Carrozza and Bob Anderson, with Rory Janney and Layton winning
the twin consolations.

Dover's Gene Knaub picked up his fifth win of the year in the 20-lap
thundercar feature.
Knaub, who started fifth, chased down polesitter and race-long
leader Doug Devilbiss on the ninth lap to take the lead and led the rest of
the way to take the checkered over David Prunkl, Nat Tuckey, points leader
Neil Smith, and Devilbiss. Sixth through tenth were Sam Gallagher, Smoke
Christine, Bob Bare, Duane Watson, and Al Crammer.
Heats for the 25 thundercars were won by Gallagher, Devilbiss and
Christine, with Jim Martz Jr. winning the consolation. All thundercar
qualifying events went non-stop.

Next Saturday night, July 22nd, Lincoln Speedway give the Cindy Rowe
Auto Glass 410 Sprinters the night off to race elsewhere, giving the 358
Sprints top-billing for the night along with the ever-popular Thundercars.
Rounding out the three-division show will be the Super Sportsman.
Gates for the evening's racing action will open at 5:30 PM, with
racing action getting underway at 7:30 PM.

ESH WINS SECOND STRAIGHT AT LINCOLN, THIRD OF THE WEEK;
Trout ends dry spell with "358" sprint win; Prunkl scores first of '06 in thundercars


ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 7/8/06 - Had his throttle been working right, it
would've been worse.
Lancaster's Doug "the Hammer" Esh made mincemeat of the rest of the
field in claiming the 25-lap "410" sprint feature at Lincoln Speedway
Saturday night.
Esh's dominating run began with an 11th starting spot, continued
when he became the fourth different leader of the race by passing Jim Siegel
in turns three and four of lap 12, and ended when he crossed 8.05 second
ahead of the rest of the field. By the time the final caution of the event
came out on lap 18, Esh had put four lapped cars between himself and Siegel.
He was on the tale end of the lead lap when he crossed a half-lap in front
of Siegel. Josh Wells, Eric Stambaugh, and Michael Carber finished third
through fifth in a tight pack just behind Siegel.
"I had to calm myself down there a little bit," revealed Esh
following his famous victory lane wing dance, "The throttle was sticking
half open and I was having trouble getting into the corners...I kept having
to pick it (the gas pedal) up. It messed up my rhythm a bit and Dennis
(Kohler) was yelling at me on the backstretch to calm down. Dick and Leslie
(Leach) stick behind us, and Dennis is just awesome. If he gets the car
right, I can get it going. He makes up for me a lot though."
Brian Leppo started on the pole and followed front row starter Jeff
Busby for the first two laps before taking the lead on the backstretch of
lap three. But two laps later, Leppo pulled up lame on the front stretch as
he was crossing under the flagstand, handing the point back to Busby. But
Busby's lead was short-lived, as Jim Siegel dove under Busby for the top
spot in turns three and four of lap six. Siegel led until Esh made the
race-winning pass on lap 12.
Esh assumed fifth when Leppo dropped from the field, moved around
Stambaugh for fourth on lap six, drove the cushion past Josh Wells for third
on lap seven, and got around Busby for second on lap nine. At the time,
Siegel's lead was nearly two seconds. But it only took Esh two and-a-half
laps to reel in the leader and make the race-winning pass.
"We won here on Monday, and, to come back here and win again this
week is awesome," said Esh, who capped off his three-win week with his
fourth of the year at Lincoln.
"I was glad to win at Selinsgrove because I didn't want them to
think I could only win here." said Esh on his win at Selinsgrove this past
Tuesday in the Speedweek finale.
"This is pretty incredible," said Esh, "I kept telling Dennis
(Kohler) that I would love to get on a roll and win every time I was
out...but that's so hard to do when the competition here is incredible. You
know, Fred (Rahmer), Jimmy Siegel, Eric Stambaugh, Leppo, there all just
tough-tough racers and they don't give you an inch. They race you hard. Josh
Wells and I had it going back-and-fourth. It's so much fun to race here.
It's got to be a great show for the fans."
"Dennis's experience that he brought to this team in invaluable. He
raced on a professional level for so many years and we were just a bunch of
part-time junkies. He came in and just totally changed the program and told
us everything we needed to do. I am so fortunate to be in this car. There is
a lot of drivers that would like to be in it."
Sixth through tenth were Niki Young, Alan Krimes, Fred Rahmer, Chad
Layton, and Bobby Weaver.
Heats for the 25 "410" sprinters were won by Leppo, Busby and
Siegel.

Former track champ Chad Trout of Felton finally got the monkey off
his back by claiming his first win of the year in the 20-lap "358" sprint
feature. In doing so, he became the eighth different winner in nine races
at Lincoln this year.
Trout started eighth, moved into the top five by the end of the
second lap, advanced to third by lap four, got by lady driver Jessie
Morrison for the runner-up spot on lap seven, and chased leader Eric Tomecek
the next two laps before making the race-winning pass coming off turn four
and under th crossed flags at the half-way mark.
Morrison led the first five laps from her outside front row starting
spot, and gave way to sixth-starting Tomecek on lap six.
Although Trout led the entire second half of the race, he was
hounded by Tomecek the rest of the way. Former two-time track champ Cory
Haas, who started 11th, entered the picture on the final caution of the race
with two laps to go. The leaders were three-wide off turn four with the
white flag waving before Trout took charge on the cushion of turns one and
two on the final lap. He took the checkered a half-second in front of
Tomecek for his sixth career win in the Pigeon Hills (sole possession of
eighth place on the all-time 358 Lincoln win list). Tomecek held off Haas
for his career best finish. Fourth and fifth were Jay Galloway and Derek
Locke. Completing the top ten were Bob Howard, Mike Bittinger, Rory Janney,
17th-starting Joe Ilg, and Nate Hammaker.
Dale Hammaker handed the point lead over to Haas when he crashed
with Brad McClelland on turn two of lap 13.
Heats for the 37 "358" sprinters were won by John Westbrook, Bob
Anderson, Locke and Trout, with Jeff Rohrbaugh and Ilg winning the twin
consolations.

Sykesville, MD's David Prunkl wired the field in the 20-lap
thundercar feature for his first win of 2006. He became the ninth different
winner in 17 races this year.
Prunkl took the lead from his pole position and led every lap,
including a two-lap dash to the checkered to hold off Dane Watson and
19th-starting Nat Tuckey. It was Prunkl's 11th career win at Lincoln, and
came 1.23 seconds ahead of the opening day winner.
Danny Beard and Smoke Christine rounding out the top five.
Completing the top ten were points leader Neil Smith, Mike Slaybaugh, Bob
Bare, Al Crammer, and Jake Markey.
Heats for the 27 thundercars were won by Markey, Prunkl and Gene
Knaub, who dropped from the field after a multi-car tangle on lap two.

Next Saturday night, July 15th, Lincoln Speedway will host the
ANNUAL DARYL GOHN/GLEN GOHN SR. MEMORIAL once again with hundreds of prizes

ESH HAMMERS DOWN FIRST CAREER PA SPEEDWEEK WIN AT LINCOLN;
Gene Knaub dominates thundercars for fourth '06 win

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 7/3/06 -Doug Esh turned around a modest
Pennsylvania Speedweek by driving away from a talent-laden field and
claiming the $10,000 first prize in the 30-lap 410 sprint feature at Lincoln
Speedway Monday night.
The Lancaster driver known as "the Hammer" coaxed the most out of a
"tired" motor to come from eighth starting spot, drive by some of the best
Eastern sprint car racing has to offer, and claim his first-ever PA
Speedweek win.
"This has been awesome!" exclaimed Esh following his famous wing
dance in victory lane, "We had bad luck this week, and Dick (Leach) told me
'You know, if we win that it'll put us back on target a little bit. We
pulled that bad number...we come here with a wore our Kinard Trucking
motor...it needs rebuilt. We finished it off..."
The early part of the evening looked like much of Speedweek so far
for the Leach family Kinard Trucking/C.W. Fritz Company/Bankowitch
Countertops/Butcher Motorsports #30. Despite setting fast time over the
29-car field, Esh drew the highest-possible "eight" pill for the A-Main
inversion. That put him behind the likes of polesitter Keith Kauffman,
front row starter Chad Layton, a row two consisting of Jeff Shepard and
Lucas Wolfe, and third-row starters Fred Rahmer and Brian Montieth for the
start.
Kauffman jumped out to the lead at the start, and paced the field
the first two laps before he jumped the cushion in turn four and yielded to
Shepard coming down the front stretch to complete lap three. Shepard was
the leader, Kauffman second, and Rahmer third when the first caution came
out for Bobby Weaver, Jim Siegel, and Eric Stambaugh, who got together in
turns three and four of lap seven, ending Stambaugh's night.
Kauffman took to the top side on the eighth-lap restart, reclaiming
the lead through turns three and four of lap nine. Doug Esh, who actually
moved into fourth on lap five, began closing on the top three on lap ten,
just before a caution came out for Brian Montieth, who spun in turn two of
lap 11.
On the restart, Rahmer pulled the slider to drive under Shepard for
second in turns three and four. Esh got by Shepard one lap later, and again
began closing on the two leaders.
Another slider in turns three and four put Rahmer in the lead on lap
16, and Esh edged Kauffman at the line on lap 20 just before a caution came
out for Donnie Kreitz, Jr., who stopped on the backstretch. Since less than
half the field was by the flagstand to complete the lap, Esh's pass counted
but the lap did not. Layton was up to fourth when the caution came out, but
he jumped the cushion in turns three and four on lap 20 and lost three
spots.
While the crowd was watching the York Excavating/Apple Dealerships
#12, Esh was driving by Rahmer for the race lead exiting turn four. He
quickly pulled away from the nine-time Lincoln champ, and cruised through
lapped traffic over the last two laps to cross 2.30-seconds in front.
"He (Rahmer) and I have been tough on each other this year, and he
went in there...I think for the block...and I snuck underneath him and just
got going," continued Esh, "I just need to keep my rhythm going and we
didn't need a caution so I could get lapped cars in between us. Dennis
(Kohler) kept telling me we were pulling away. Man I just can't believe it.
This is awesome!"
Rahmer's second-place finish, combined with Lance Dewease's
ninth-place finish, vaulted him into the PA Speedweek points lead by 28
points (893 to 865). Finishing third through fifth were ninth-starting Alan
Krimes, Kauffman, and Lucas Wolfe. Completing the top ten were
11th-starting Stevie Smith, Shepard, Layton, 16th-starting Dewease, and Mark
Smith.
Heats were won by Kauffman, Stevie Smith and Kyle Pruitt, with
Krimes winning the B-Main. Doug Esh set fast time over the 29-car field with
a one-lap time of 13.311-seconds (96.552 MPH).
Top ten in PA Speedweek points heading into Tuesday's series finale
at Selinsgrove are: 1) Fred Rahmer (893); 2) Lance Dewease (865); 3) Doug
Esh (697); 4) Stevie Smith (675); 5) Jeff Shepard (589); 6) Lucas Wolfe
(586); 7) Keith Kauffman (546); 8) Mark Smith (545); 9) Greg Hodnett (538);
and 10) Chad Layton (532).

Dover's Gene Knaub became the division's first four-time winner in
claiming the 20-lap thundercar feature. Knaub took the lead from his
outside front row starting position and led every lap.
Three-time winner Nat Tuckey advanced from his seventh starting spot
into second on the seventh lap, and chased Knaub the entire distance,
crossing 1.04 second behind the winner.
Third through fifth were Craig Wagaman, Neil Smith, and Danny Beard.
Completing the top ten were Al Crammer, Duane Watson, Sam Gallagher, Mike
Zeigler, Sr., and Ronnie Thomas. Heats for the 35 thundercars were
won by Knaub, Beard and Tuckey, with Bob Bare winning the consolation.

This Saturday night, July 8th, it will be KIDS NIGHT at Lincoln
Speedway with loads of games and prizes to be given away to all the children
in attendance. Thousands of dollars in money and merchandise has been
donated by individuals, race teams and businesses to be used towards the
hundreds of prizes to be given away to children of all ages during the
evening's racing program.
All three Lincoln Speedway point divisions will be in action - the
Cindy Rowe Auto Glass 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints & Thundercars. Green flag
racing will begin at 7:30 PM, with gates opening at 5:30 PM.

DEWEASE OUTRUNS RAHMER IN PENNSYLVANIA SPEEDWEEK OPENER;
Gene Knaub scores third '06 Lincoln win in thundercars

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 6/24/06 - Round one of Pennsylvania Speedweek went
to Lance Dewease at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night. Dewease took the lead
from Eric Stambaugh on the second lap and then led the remaining 28 laps en
route to the opening night win in Speedweek action in the 30-lap Kevin
Gobrecht Memorial.
"We had a better starting spot than Fred (Rahmer)...but Fred was
probably a little better than us," said Dewease upon exiting his winning
HAMM High Performance/Pete's Bridge Street Motors No.25 sprinter in victory
lane. "We're throwing the book at it right now"
"We've been pretty bad the last three races but were gaining on it
and we're still not as good as we need to be. It definately was an
improvement tonight."
Dewease's 15th career Speedweek win capped off a interesting night
that saw the Fayetteville driver set fast time and still start on the front
row. Though he was scheduled to start fourth, Dewease moved to the front
row after the polesitter Lucas Wolfe started too soon twice, resulting in
both himself and fellow frontrow starter Doug Esh being penalized for false
starts, swapping the first and second rows for the start.
"That one guy there on the frontrow didn't start the race right, and
the second start wasn't any better," said Dewease on his good fortune to
move to the front row after two false starts by the polesitter. "I've got to
give Lincoln's officials a lot of credit for calling that back...that helped
me and Stambaugh a lot there."
New polesitter Eric Stambaugh grabbed the lead on the third attempt
to start the race, but the red flag came out for a five-car crash exiting
turn four. Jeff Shepard and Mark Smith both flipped, also collecting the
cars of Niki Young, Bobby Weaver, and Mike Erdley. The damaged cars of
Shepard, Smith, and Erdley were done for the night.
Young, who had suffered top wing damage and a flat right rear went
to the pits, but was able to return to action after another caution came on
the ensuing restart.
The 30-lap race finally got underway on the fifth try with Stambaugh
taking the lead on the opening lap. Dewease took advantage of his newly
found outside frontrow starting spot to get by the East Berlin racer on the
second lap.
"He got me on the first start, and kind of had me on the second
start but I kept jacking the car around and kept getting the car a little
bit better on each start," Said Dewease. "I knew (Stambaugh) would run the
bottom so we were going to run the wall and hopfully get some momentum and
we did and got by him.
The caution flag waved one more time on the third lap for TJ Stutts
who slowed to a stop on the frontstretch.
On the restart Dewease maintained his advantage as Rahmer, who
started sixth, battled with Stambaugh for the runner-up spot. The nine-time
defending track champion worked his way around Stambaugh in the third and
fourth turns of the 10th lap as Dewease enjoyed a 1.10-second advantage.
From there Rahmer, a nine-time Speedweek champ, tried to race-down
the former three-time Speedweek champ and closed on the Fayetteville racer
as they began to race through lapped traffic on the 15th lap.
Rahmer made his only serious challenge on the 20th lap as he pulled
alongside Dewease on the frontstretch with 10 laps to go while racing
through heavy lapped traffic.
But Dewease was able to weather the storm and began to out some
daylight between himself and Rahmer as the lapped traffic began to clear
away in front of him.
"I know where (Rahmer) likes to run, running the bottom," said
Dewease. "I went down there once, but I could move out high to get by those
lapped cars and that last pass around those two lapped cars really helped me
a lot."
Dewease out-raced Rahmer by 1.60-seconds over the final laps to the
checkered.
A scramble for third place in the final turns to the checkered saw
seventh-starting Greg Hodnett make contact with Stambaugh, resulting in a
spin by Stambaugh. Stambaugh spun to a stop, handing third place to Hodnett
and relagating Stambaugh to a 12th place finish.
Esh and Chad Layton finished in fourth and fifth-place respectively.
Completing the top ten were tenth-starting Stevie Smith (who crashed
in his heat and qualified with a "B" Main win), Chris Knopp, Alan Krimes,
17th-starting Brian Montieth, and Brian Leppo.
Niki Young received the $100 Trone Outdoor Advertising hard charger
award for coming from 23rd-starting spot and enduring two feature crashes to
finish 13th.
Heats were won by Stutts, Montieth, Shepard and Scott Geesey , with
Stevie Smith winning the B-Main. Dewease set fast time over the 42-car field
with a one-lap time of 13.612-seconds (99.177 MPH).

Dover's Gene Knaub scored his third Lincoln win of the year in the
20-lap thundercar feature. Knaub started third and passed polesitter and
race-long leader David Prunkl on the fourth lap and held off a last-lap
charge by ninth-starting and three-time winner Craig Wagaman for the win by
.94-seconds.
Danny Beard crossed third, followed by Prunkl and point leader Neil
Smith in fourth and fifth place respectively.
Rounding out the top ten were Nat Tuckey, Bob Bare, Jim Martz, Jr.,
Duane Watson, and Sam Gallagher.
Heats for the 21 thundercars were won by Beard, Tuckey and Prunkl.

LAYTON COMES UP BIG IN STERNER MEMORIAL;
Scott Purcell wins URC feature and Neil Smith wins last lap thundercar thriller


ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 6/17/06 - Chad Layton's Apple Motorsports sprinter
dawned the #69 on its top wing Saturday night at Lincoln Speedway.
The York-based team owned by Bob Stewart was honoring their sponsor
Sterner Cement on a night remembering the former track owner and car owner.
So it was only fitting that the Harrisburg driver would bring home
the big $6,000 payday in the 33-lap Weldon Sterner Memorial for 410 Sprints.
The win was the fourth of the season for Layton and the Apple team and the
fourth career win for the former 358 sprint star.
"This Sterner 69 car was just great and we thank them for their
support," said Layton, who has won the last three features he's competed in
at Lincoln. "They are a big help to us and what a night for us to get it."
While Cory Haas led the first 15 laps of the main event, Layton made
a laugher out of the final portion of the race. Layton held a half lap
advantage over nine-time track champion and current points leader Fred
Rahmer when the checkered flag fell.
"When we pushed out and lined up against the wall, I just tried to
stay focused and I didn't really want to get out of the car and mingle too
much," stated Layton. "This car is just great and Lee (Stauffer) just keeps
surprising the hell out of me. And all the guys just work real hard to get
this car this good."
Haas led early over Eric Stambaugh when a spectacular crash brought
out the red flag on lap seven. Brian Montieth and Jeff Busby tangled going
into turn three with Busby getting some air time and bringing down the track
lights.
Layton, who moved into the top five on lap five, continued to work
his way to the front taking the runner-up spot from Eric Stambaugh with
eight laps complete.
Haas maintained the lead while Layton looked for ways around the
York driver and finally made the pass for the lead entering turn one on lap
16.
Once out front, Layton's York Excavating Company, Apple Dealerships,
Sterner Cement, HTMA, R & R Components sponsored sprinter pulled away from
the field..
Rahmer started 10th and was able to get around Haas for second place
on lap 27 in turn two but was never able to close the gap on Layton.
"I seen the 22 get on the board and that made me worry a little
bit," Layton said. "I thought Fred was gonna at least try and make a dive at
me but I was told he was a little ways back. I was just glad to start in
front of him."
Haas finished in the third spot with East Berlin's Niki Young fourth
and Dillsburg's Scott Geesey fifth.
Completing the top 10 were Stambaugh, Sam Schlosberg, Lance Dewease,
Greg Hodnett and Doug Esh.
Lucas Wolfe won the $500 Hard Charger bonus courtesy of Pat Sterner
and Don Althoff. Wolfe started 24th and finished 13th.
Heats for the 27 "410" sprinters were won by Haas, Sam Schlosberg
and Niki Young with Doug Esh winning the consolation.

Scott Purcell wired the 25-lap URC Sprint car feature for his first
win of the season.
It was a special night for the Frenchtown, NJ driver after being
seriously injured two years ago in a roadside accident en route to the URC
race at Lincoln.
Purcell was never challenged in his fourth career URC win and was
thrilled to win at Lincoln and in "Sprint car country."
Dave Ely chased Purcell the entire distance and finished in the
second spot over Randy West, Josh Weller and Bill Brian, Jr. Sixth through
10th were Todd Rittenhouse, Jr., Kramer Williamson, Ed Aiken, Greg Coverdale
and 24th starting Mark Bitner.
Heats for the 32 URC Sprints were won by Purcell, Ely and Josh
Weller with Jason Clauss winning the consolation.

Neil Smith led the lap that counted in the caution-filled 20-lap
thundercar feature.
Smith took the lead from Craig Wagaman following a lap 19 restart
for his 38th career win and second of the season.
Danny Beard, David Prunkl, Jim Martz, Jr and Wagaman led before
Smith went under Wagaman in turn one on the final lap. Wagaman finished
second followed by Mike Slaybaugh, Mike Zeigler, Jr. And Mike Zeigler, Sr..
Heats for the 30 thundercars were won by Mike Walls, Prunkl and
Wagaman with Barry Williams winning the consolation.

Next Saturday night, June 24th, PENNSYLVANIA SPEEDWEEK gets underway
with the running of the 7TH ANNUAL KEVIN GOBRECHT MEMORIAL with the 410
sprinters going 30-laps in the $5,000-to-win feature. The thundercar
regulars will also be on hand to round out the evening's racing action which
will get underway at 7:30 PM with time trials. Gates will open at 5:30 PM.

LAYTON TAMES 410 SPRINT FIELD ON PREMIER AUTO WORKS/AUTO LOCATOR NIGHT;
Dale Hammaker claims first 358 win of '06; Tuckey wins feature and "Shoot-Out" for second straight year

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 6/10/06 - "It's a fun ride, that's for sure."
So said Harrisburg's Chad Layton after outmaneuvering the field on
a slick racing surface to claim his second win of the year at Lincoln
Speedway Saturday night.
Layton started ninth and scratched through the field to drive around
front row starter and race-long leader Michael Carber in turns three and
four of lap 15. He proceeded to drive away to a quarter-lap lead before the
only caution flag came out for a spinning Brian Montieth in his final two
turns of lap 24.
A lapped car placed between the two leaders for the restart kept
Doug Esh from mounting any serious challenge on the final lap, and the York
Excavating Company/Apple Dealerships/Sterner Cement #12 crossed
84-hundredths of-a-second before the Kinard Trucking #30 at the finish.
"This car keeps surprising the heck out of me each week," said a
happy Layton in victory lane, "Lee (Stauffer) just keeps getting it better
and better...I don't know what to expect anymore, it just wants to take off
and go. We were hot right out of the box early on and didn't make too many
changes as the night went on. Other people were making changes as the night
went on to get better and so Lee went to his box and found a magic set-up
for us we were able to get it done."
Carber, who graduates from Penn Ridge High School this coming week,
had a 2.74-second lead by the fifth lap. That's when Doug Esh, who started
tenth, drove around both Eric Stambaugh and Sam Schlosberg to move into
second. Layton also passed both drivers on lap six, and the two closed on
the leader while battling each other for the runner-up spot. Layton finally
got around Esh for second on lap 11, just as the leaders entered lapped
traffic for the first time.
Layton challenged Carber over the next four laps before making the
race-winning pass. Layton talked about his race with Esh in victory lane.
"Doug's a hard competitor and I just seen we were edging him out
there a little bit...but his cars' always good," said Layton on his race
with Esh for second. "We were just a little bit better tonight...I just
don't know what to say, this car is just outstandingly fast. It's got so
much traction and so much bite. Thanks for letting me drive it."
Defending champ and points leader Fred Rahmer took advantage of the
caution to get by Carber on the final lap and cross third. Carber settled
for fourth, and Schlosberg was fifth. Completing the top ten were Premier
Auto Works Cash Dash winner Niki Young, Cory Haas, Scott Geesey, Jimmy
Siegel (piloting the back-up Wirtgen/Hamilton Motorsports #77), and
Stambaugh.
The win was Layton's third career in the Pigeon Hills and his fifth
overall victory in 2006.
"This Apple Motorsports, York Excavating, Sterner Cement, Wagaman
Construction sprint car just don't have no problems at all," Layton added,
"We struggle a little bit when it's heavy, but that's just me...I'm just a
little scared to go fast when it's like that, but when it slicks off we
don't have no problem."
The win was actually Layton's second in-a-row at Lincoln, as he
missed last Saturday after the rig crashed on the way home from another
race.
"It's unfortunate what happed, but we just didn't have a hauler to
come here last week," said car-owner Bob Stewart , "We are very very
thankful that no one was injured in the accident...we would have liked to
have been here but we just couldn't get here."
Heats for the 19 "410" sprinters were won by Layton and Stambaugh.
Preliminary Dashes were won by Layton and Stambaugh, with Young taking the
$300-to-win Cash Dash.
Grantville's Dale Hammaker showed why he's the Lincoln points leader
by claiming his first win of the year in the special non-points "358" sprint
feature. Hammaker drew the #6 pill for the start, and got around Chad Trout
for the runner-up spot on lap three. He then chased down polesitter and
race-long leader Matt Boland to grab the lead on lap seven, and paced the
field the rest of the way, despite heavy pressure from a charging Cory Haas
over the final 13 laps.
Like the 410 sprint feature, the 358 event had a one-lap dash to the
checkered, with Hammaker holding off Haas by 1.04 seconds for the $1,000
win. Haas completed a good night in second, followed by Billy Dietrich,
Boland, and 18th-starting Danny Dietrich. Completing the top ten were Joe
Ilg, Trout, Eric Tomecek, Nathan Berwager, and Scott Ellerman.
Heats for the 33 "358" sprinters were won by Dale Hammaker, Bob
Anderson and Billy Dietrich, with Danny Dietrich winning the consolation.
Nat Tuckey claimed the Trail-Way/Lincoln "Shoot-Out" for a second
straight year by leading all 20 laps of the thundercar feature. Though he
led every lap, Tuckey had to withstand constant heat from 15th-starting
Craig Wagaman over the final seven laps to score the half-carlength win, his
third of the year in the Pigeon Hills.
The official margin of victory was 22-hundredths of-a-second for the
#22. It was his 13th career win at Lincoln, moving him into a three-way tie
for tenth with Ron Shultz and Mike Zeigler, Jr. on the all-time win list.
Sam Gallagher crossed third, followed by Zeigler, Jr. and Mike
Walls.
Tuckey's win, combined with his second-place finish at Trail-Way
Friday night, earned him the $250 bonus for the best two-night combined
finish at the two tracks. Walls was second overall for the two nights, with
Gallagher, Duane Watson, and Zeigler, Jr. the best five drivers for the two nights.
Heats for the 34 thundercars were won by Tuckey, Neil Smith and
Mike Walls, with Bob Stough winning the consolation.
Next Saturday night, June 17th at 7:30 PM, it will be the $6,000 to
win THIRD ANNUAL WELDON STERNER MEMORIAL featuring the Cindy Rowe Auto Glass
410 Sprints, along with the ever-popular thundercars.
In addition, the URC Sprinters will make their annual visit to the
Pigeon Hills oval to round out the evening's three-division show. Gates will
open at 5:30 PM.

HODNETT HOLDS OFF ESH FOR LINCOLN ALL-STAR WIN;
Mark Zellers wins first ever in 358's


ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 6/3/06 - Sometimes it's better to be lucky than
good.
Greg Hodnett proved that Saturday night, holding off a determined
Doug Esh behind heavy lapped traffic to squeak out his second win of the
year in the 30-lap, $5,000 to win All-Star Circuit of Champions feature at
Lincoln Speedway.
Hodnett only timed ninth quick in the 35-car field, then barely hung
on for a fifth-place qualifying spot in the final heat.
But he landed a front-row starting spot when Jim Siegel, Brian
Leppo, and Craig Keel all failed to qualify in their respective heats.
After a false start and a red flag for a flipping Siegel exiting turn two of
the first lap, Hodnett dove to the low side on the front stretch of the
third start, and pulled away from the field to a comfortable 2.77-second
lead by the time he hit lapped traffic on lap eight.
Two laps later, third-starting Doug Esh drove by polesitter Todd
Shaffer into the runner-up spot. That's when defending champ Fred Rahmer
had a rear end go out and pulled into the infield. At the time, Rahmer was
running seventh after starting 16th. It was the second race in a row that
the 146-time winner failed to finish in the top ten.
While Esh trying to chase down Hodnett, Lance Dewease was advancing
through the field to move into third after a wild four-car battle with
Shaffer, Eric Stambaugh, and Niki Young. Dewease took third from Stambaugh
on lap 17.
Hodnett's lead was nearly three seconds when the only other caution
flag of the event came out for Brian Montieth, who swiped the third turn
wall and slowed in turn four. Montieth went straight to the pits and
changed a right rear, returning to the rear of the field. For the restart,
Hodnett enjoyed a four-car cushion over Esh.
By the time Esh cleared lapped traffic, Hodnett had rebuilt a
2.93-second lead (lap 21). But that's when Hodnett closed on lapped traffic
a final time. He had difficulty dealing with the lapped cars, who were all
racing for position in front of him.
Esh apparently saw Hodnett's dilemma, and began a final charge,
closing to within one carlength of the leader at the checkered flag.
"We got pretty lucky with our starting spot and took advantage of
it," said Hodnett in victory lane,"I tried not to stop and go...I just
wanted to keep up my momentum and that's how I caught and passed a lot of
those guys. It got to where I kind of needed to be on the bottom, but we
weren't good on the bottom, so I kind of kept moving and moving and
struggled a lot there over the last five laps...but I hung on for the win."
"I just knew we were getting really, really bad," said Hodnett on
Esh closing fast over the final laps. "I needed to get by a couple lapped
cars and they were kind of running where I wanted to run...I wanted to run
on the bottom but I couldn't cut across the corner like I wanted to. I just
kind of kept it moving and tried to pick them (lapped cars) off and figured
he was going to have to pass them too. I just knew we were getting bad there
at the end."
"Those guys did a great job," said Hodnett on the All Stars on hand.
"They have to bust ass and get over to Terre Haute, IN, for tomorrow night's
show...we appreciate them guys coming out and always enjoy having them, but
we always enjoy beating them too!"
With the win, his second the year and 16th of his career in the
Pigeon Hills, Hodnett moved into a tie for 16th place on the all-time
Lincoln win list with Steve Kinser.
"To be anywhere near that guy on anything is a good deal for me,"
said Hodnett, "No body's going to come close to Steve Smith or Fred Rahmer
though. My hat's off to them guys...I'm just fortunate to beat these guys
once in a while."
Dewease settled for third, with Young fourth and Stambaugh fifth.
Sixth through tenth were All Star points leader Greg Wilson (who made the
show by finishing fourth in the B-Main), Jeff Shepard, Shaffer, Montieth
(who came from the back on lap 19), and Michael Carber.
410 sprint heats were won by Shaffer, Rahmer, Josh Wells and Scott
Geesey.
Shepard won the Dash while Siegel won the B-Main.
Fast time in time trials over the 35-car field was set by Dewease
with a one-lap time of 13.904 seconds (97.094 MPH).
Dover's Mark Zellers claimed his first career Lincoln win in the
20-lap "358" sprint car feature. Zellers, who also started second, took the
lead over polesitter Joe Trone, Jr. at the start and led every lap.
"It feels a lot better to be standing in victory lane than over the
guardrail like we did the first time out," said Zellers during an emotional
victory lane. Zellers began the season by landing a brand new car on top of
the outside guardrail during the first hot lap session he was in his first
night out.
Fourth-starting Bob Anderson moved into second on the opening turns
and ran there for the next 11 laps before yielding to eighth-starting Joe
Ilg. Ilg chased Zellers the rest of the way, but crossed 1.l51-seconds
behind the winner. Third was two-time winner Brad McClelland, with Jeff
Rohrbaugh fourth and Cory Haas fifth.
Sixth through tenth were points leader Dale Hammaker, Anderson, Rory
Janney, Derek Locke, and Todd Rittenhouse, Jr.
Heats for the 38 "358" sprinters were won by Rohrbaugh, Zellers,
Anderson and Haas. Twin consolations were won by Mike Bittinger and
Rittenhouse.

Next Saturday night, June 10th and 7:30 PM, it will be PREMIER AUTO
WORKS/AUTO LOCATOR NIGHT featuring the 410 Sprints, Thundercars
(Trail-Way/Lincoln "Shoot-Out"), 358 Sprints, and KIDS BIG WHEEL RACES.
The originally-scheduled limited late models for the June 10th show
were canceled due to a scheduling conflict. The 358 sprints were then added
to the show in a special "non-points" race. Also in effect for the
remainder of the season will be a one-tire right rear rule just like the 410
sprints run at Lincoln. Racing will get underway at 7:30 PM, with gates
will opening at 5:30 PM.

PAT CANNON SCORES FIRST CAREER LINCOLN “358" FEATURE WIN
Duaine Smith leads ‘em all in super sportsman feature; Levan takes INEX Legends main
May 28, 2006

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 5/28/06 - Mechanicsburg’s Pat Cannon picked up his first career Lincoln Speedway win Saturday night in the 20-lap 358 sprint feature.

Cannon, who started along polesitter and defending track champion Billy Dietrich, slipped around the Aspers driver exiting the fourth turn of the opening lap for the lead, and then held off a determined Dale Hammaker over the final 18 laps to register the win.

The action came to a quick stop on the second lap for a seven car crash in the first and second turns which saw third-starting Todd Rittenhouse lose control and flip, collecting Cory Haas, Adam Wilt, Mike Duncan, Bob Anderson and Jimmy Layton.

Fourth-starting Dale Hammaker drove around Dietrich on the restart to move into second, just before the first of four cautions waved for the stopped Steve Owings sprinter in the fourth turn.

Cannon continued to hold off Hammaker through cautions on the sixth-, 10th- and 15th-laps.

The sixth lap caution was for the stopped Mike Duncan sprinter. The 10th lap caution ended a very dramatic run by former champion Chad Trout who had roared up through the field from his 18th starting spot and had worked his way up to sixth at one point. But a flat right rear tire brought out the caution and ended his hopes of a win. The final caution on the 15th lap was for fifth-running Danny Dietrich who spun in the first and second turns.

Meanwhile, former two-time track champ Haas, who was involved in the second lap crash, was charging through the field and running sixth as the field took the green with six laps to go.

Cannon drove the final laps flawlessly and took the checkered 1.20-seconds ahead of points leader Hammaker for the win.

After getting passed for second place on the third lap, Billy Dietrich ran tough the rest of the way to finish third, with Jeff Rohrbaugh (who started sixth) finishing fourth and Haas fifth. Completing the top ten 10 were Joe Ilg, Bobby Howard, Davie Franek, Nate Hammaker and Rory Janney.

Heats for the 39 "358" sprinters were won by Haas, Rittenhouse, Rohrbaugh and Dale Hammaker. Twin consolations were won by Randy Rhoads and Trout.

Polesitter Duaine Smith grabbed the lead at the drop of the green and held off veteran driver Smokey Snellbaker over the final 16 laps of the race to pick up the win in the 20 lap super sportsman feature.

Smith, from Linglestown, outraced fellow frontrow starter Snellbaker over the opening lap to take the lead with fifth-starting John Stehman sneaking by into second by the end of the opening lap.

The "Silver Fox", Snellbaker, regrouped and fought back to take back the runner-up spot on the fourth lap and chased Smith the rest of the way.

Frankie Herr came through the field from his ninth starting spot to grab third on lap 10 and ran there the rest of the race, with 18th-starting Jim Shuttlesworth crossing fourth and Stehman settling for fifth. Completing the top ten were 17th-starting Rich Eichelberger, Craig Morrow, Steve Cannon, Carmen Perigo, Jr., and Steve Wilbur.

Heats for the 35 Super Sportsman were won by Snellbaker, Bobby Weaver, Perigo, and Cannon. Twin consolations were won by Rich Eichelberger and Shuttlesworth.

Kutztown’s Brian Levan has done everything but win at Lincoln Speedway throughout his career. He finally reached his goal by claiming the 15-lap INEX Legends feature over the team cars of Ronnie Dunstan and Jason Rochelle, who crossed second and third, respectively. Josh Morrow came from 20th-starting spot to finish fourth, with Rodney Adams coming home fifth.

Heats for the 40 INEX Legends were won by Dunstan, Rochelle, Steve Nederostek and Tim Tomson. Twin consolations were won by Jason Ewing and Bill Harris.

Next Saturday night, June 3rd, the All Star Circuit of Champions invade the Pigeon Hills oval to take on the Pennsylvania Posse. Time trials get underway at 7:30 PM. The 358 sprinters will round-out the special two-division show. Gates will open at 5:30 PM.

RAHMER CHALKS UP CAREER WIN #146 IN LINCOLN 410'S
McClelland first repeat winner in 358's; Knaub reclaims lead in final lap to win second of year in thundercars

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 5/20/06 - A high speed game of "chicken" between two of the Northeast’s best sprint car drivers proved disastrous for Doug Esh and resulted in career win number 146 for Fred Rahmer in the 25 lap 410 sprint feature at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

After swapping the lead back-and-forth several times and literally pushing each other sideways through the third and fourth turns twice, Rahmer emerged victorious in the classic, hard-fought battle between two good friends.

"That was exciting," said Rahmer after climbing from his sprinter in victory lane, "Obviously Doug (Esh) is a little hungrier than I am. I just have to start running a little harder."

"The guys had the car good," added Rahmer, "If I hadn’t won that race, it would have been totally my fault. I got lucky. He went in there and went to the middle and I got a run around the top and it’s all good."

Polesitter Carber grabbed the lead at the outset and led the first two laps before the red flag waved for Chad Layton who flipped over the spinning cars of Josh Wells and Sam Schlosberg in the first and second turns.

On the restart, third-starting Eric Stambaugh took-over the top spot and led until a sixth-lap caution for a Glenndon Forsythe spin. The caution turned to red when Brian Leppo’s sprinter suddenly erupted in a fuel fire and came to a stop in the third and fourth turns. Leppo was uninjured, as emergency crews reacted quickly and extinguished the flames.

On the restart, tenth-starting Doug Esh drove around both Rahmer and Carber to move into second place behind leader Stambaugh. Rahmer, who started 12th, followed suit and drove around Carber to move into third place on the seventh lap.

Stambaugh, Esh, and Rahmer ran first through third until turn two of lap 12, when Stambaugh hopped the cushion and lost two spots before gathering it back in exiting the turn. Esh and Rahmer both drove by, and were setting up for a battle at the front when a caution came out for Davey Sammons, who slowed to a stop on the front stretch with a right rear flat.

Following another caution on the restart for a spinning Brian Montieth on the second turn, Rahmer dove to the inside entering turn one and slid in front of Esh to grab the race lead. Esh came back to reclaim the lead by driving around Rahmer in turns three and four of lap 18. Despite constant wheel-to-wheel racing between the Kinard Trucking #30 and J&S Fabrication #22, Esh was still the leader when the yellow came out for Sammons again when he stopped in turns one and two of lap 23.

Esh tried to make sneak under Rahmer for the race lead as the two exiting turn four on the restart, but his right front tire tapped the rear left tire of Rahmer and did a "360" on the front stretch, bringing out the caution flag and sending him to the rear for the restart.

"I don’t understand why he ran into me under the yellow...we’re good friends," Rahmer commented on the emotional response by Esh after spinning on the frontstretch while battling for the lead. "I was on the outside and had no place to go...it was just one of those deals."

"I don’t know what he expects. That’s just part of it (racing). Like racing any aggressive driver, getting into turn three twice, I had to roll out of it and drive across the track. But that’s part of it. If you get yourself into a victim position, you’re a victim. I almost did that. I’m just glad to win." The race was stopped one final time when Clabaugh hit the wall and flipped on turn one of lap 24.

Rahmer crossed .84 seconds in front of Carber at the finish, with Stambaugh third, Niki Young fourth, and Bobby Weaver fifth. Completing the top ten were Scott Geesey, Alan Krimes, Jim Siegel, Glenndon Forsythe, and Kyle Pruitt. They were the only ten cars running at the end.

"Doug’s running really hard," Rahmer added, "I just have to bump up my game...the guys got the car good and I have to personally do a better job."

Heats for the 24 "410" sprinters were won by Carber, Leppo and Stambaugh.

Brad McClelland took advantage of a seven-car melee on the opening lap and a few great early-race moves to come from ninth-starting spot and become the first repeat winner of ‘06 in the "358" sprint car feature.

McClelland restarted seventh after polesitter Mike Duncan spun on turn two and collected six other cars, including sixth-starting Derek Locke. He was running fourth by the end of the first lap, drove by Chad Trout and then Nathan Berwager for second on lap two, and took the race lead from new polesitter Mark Zellers on the backstretch of ap five.

Despite several cautions over the middle stages of the race, McClelland was never seriously challenged by second and third-place finishers Jeff Rohrbaugh and Cory Haas (who officially started 17th and advanced several spots after the first-lap crash). Danny Dietrich crossed fourth with Jimmy Layton fifth. Completing the top ten were Zellers, Nat Hammaker, Dale Hammaker, Bob Howard, and Billy Dietrich (who came back through the field after being collected in the first-lap crash).

Heats for the 39 "358" sprinters were won by Duncan, Nate Hammaker, Locke and Zellers. Twin consolation events were won by Haas and Matt Boland.

Gene Knaub led the first seven laps from the pole and then the last lap in claiming his second win of the year in the 20-lap thundercar feature.

Seventh-starting Sam Gallagher waded through three first-lap cautions to advance to third by lap four and take second from Bob Bare on lap five. Three laps later Gallagher took over the lead from Knaub and paced the field over the next 11 laps with Knaub dogging him every lap. An 18th lap caution for Bob Johnson in turn two set-up a two lap dash to the finish. Knaub used the outside groove in the final turns to the checkered for momentum and slipped by Gallagher for the win at the line.

Point leader Duane Watson finished third with Neil Smith coming from the rear after an early-race altercation to finish fourth as did Nat Tuckey to finish fifth.

Rounding out the top-10 were Chad Myers, Tom Slusser Jr., Mike Slaybaugh, Bob Stough and Ronnie Thomas.

Heats for the 30 thundercars were won by Watson, Knaub and Stough.

RIM-RIDING BRIAN MONTIETH CLAIMS WILD LINCOLN 410 SPRINT MAIN
Billy Dietrich wins 358 mid-season championship event; Wagaman again in thundercars


ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 5/13/06 - There’s little dispute that Brian Montieth is worth the price of admission at Lincoln Speedway on any given night, even on nights he doesn’t win. On Saturday night, Montieth completed the deal.

"As long as we’re going forward...that’s all that matters to the guys in the trailer," said Montieth on his high-flying aggressive style of racing. "As long as it’s exciting...we ran into a little bad luck here earlier at the Grove with motor problems. But we have them figured out now."

"I caught a lot of flack last week for not being aggressive," said Montieth with a joking smile upon exiting his Jerry Parrish-owned, Auto Locator/Premier Auto Works/Golf Cart Services No.21 in victory lane, "Tonight I had to stand up for myself."

That he did. After starting seventh, the Phoenixville driver took only three laps to join a four-car battle for the lead with second-starting Sam Schlosberg, polesitter Brian Leppo, and fourth-starting Eric Stambaugh. Montieth used the cushion to get around Leppo for third on lap six, and promptly entered a three-car race for the top spot for the next seven laps before the only caution of the race came out for a spinning Jeff Busby on turn one of lap 14. During that seven-lap span, Montieth was never scored the race leader. Eric Stambaugh led lap 11 but dropped back to third by the end of lap 12. There were laps where all three drivers (Schlosberg, Stambaugh, and Montieth) were in the lead at some point.

On the restart, Stambaugh began to fade quickly with a right rear flat. Montieth again took to the top to drive around Schlosberg and claim the lead for good in turns three and four. He never left the cushion in driving away to a 2.9-second win, his first of the year and the seventh of his career in the Pigeon Hills.

Despite heavy lapped traffic, Montieth never lifted.

"It’s fortunate Todd and Scott can get the car good week-in and week-out. You going to have to run hard and take chances when ever you can to beat the field that’s behind you."

Eleventh-starting Greg Hodnett put on a show of his own, advancing through the field to claim the runner-up spot from Schlosberg on lap 21. He crossed second, with 12th-starting points leader Fred Rahmer getting by Schlosberg on the final lap to finish third. Schlosberg settled for fourth, with 15th-starting Lance Dewease coming on strong to finish fifth. Sixth through tenth were Jim Siegel, Doug Esh, Chad Layton, Leppo, and Niki Young.

"The track surface is far superior than last year," Montieth was quick to point out. "The racing is actually fun...it doesn’t matter to me if we finish fifth, as long as it’s swapping back and fourth. It’s just fun to run out here. I’ve been trying to run the bottom. I catch a lotta flack for that also. It’s actually not as close to the wall as I like it. It actually could have moved up a little bit."

"Jerry (Parrish) and Auto Locator, Kriner Engines and the Maxim Chassis, everything just sort of starting coming together at the end of last year and it’s just working (great) right now."

Heats for the 25 "410" sprinters were won by Schlosberg, Stambaugh and Leppo, with Josh Wells winning the consolation.

Defending Lincoln champ Billy Dietrich picked a good night to win his first Lincoln 358 sprint race of 2006.

Dietrich drove around front-row starter and race-long leader Steve Owings on lap 18 to claim the $1,500 top prize in the Trone Outdoor Advertising/York Floor Mid-Season Championship.

Though he started third, Dietrich was actually running as far back as fifth when the red flag came out for a flipping Bobby Rudisill exiting turn two of lap 10. Rudisill, who was running fourth at the time, was uninjured.

Dietrich assumed fourth for the restart and drove around Jimmy Layton for third in the first two turns of lap 11. He grabbed second from Randy Rhoads one lap later, and stalked Owings until making the race-winning pass six laps later. His final margin of victory was .72-seconds over Owings, earning him his fifth career win in the Pigeon Hills.

Owings settled for second, with Jeff Rohrbaugh coming from 16th-starting spot to cross third, Cory Haas starting 12th and finishing fourth, and Brad McClelland advancing from 15th to finish fifth. Sixth through tenth were Layton, 19-starting Danny Dietrich, Dale Hammaker, Chad Trout, and Todd Rittenhouse, Jr.

Heats for the 37 "358" sprinters were won by Rudisill, Eric Tomecek, Haas and Billy Dietrich. Twin consolation events were won by Bobby Howard and Richard Janney.

Tomecek, a teenage rookie from nearby Abbottstown, established a new 10-lap track record in his heat, with a time of 2 minutes 26.29 second, eclipsing the old record of 2 minutes 28.86 seconds set by Chad Trout on 4/12/03.

Gettysburg’s Craig Wagaman became Lincoln Speedway’s first three-time winner of 2006 in yet another thrilling 20-lap thundercar feature.

Wagaman started seventh and raced through the field to move into the runner-up spot by the end of lap five. He then passed polesitter and race-long leader Gene Knaub for the top spot on lap six and led the rest of the way despite continued pressure from Knaub, two-time winner Nat Tuckey, Mike Walls, and Duane Watson over the latter stages of the race and a one-lap shootout at the end.

He claimed his 24th career Lincoln win by a quarter-second over Knaub, with Tuckey, Walls, and Watson close behind. Sixth through tenth were Danny Beard, Bob Stough, Rick Weaver, Sam Gallagher, and Choya Young.

Heats for the 30 thundercars were won by Stough, Knaub and Tuckey, with Young winning the consolation.

Next Saturday night, May 13th, It will be "BUCKLE-UP PA NIGHT" at Lincoln Speedway featuring all three point divisions once again - the Cindy Rowe Auto Glass 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints & Thundercars at 7:30 PM. Gates open at 5:30 PM.

RAHMER HOLDS OFF ESH AND LAYTON TO WIN SECOND STRAIGHT AT LINCOLN
Rohrbaugh now a winner in four Lincoln divisions after "358" win; Tuckey edges Smith in thundercars

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 5/6/06 - It took him eight races to get that first Lincoln Speedway win of 2006. It took him only one to get his second.

Salfordville’s Fred Rahmer was on a mission Saturday night, charging from his 13th starting spot to take the lead on the eighth lap from Brian Leppo, and then holding off a barrage of challengers over the remaining 17 laps to register his second win in-a-row in the 25-lap 410 sprint feature. The $3,000 win moved Rahmer to within five wins of Lincoln’s all-time mark.

After finishing fifth in his heat and failing to make handicapping to the front of the feature field, Rahmer took to the top at the outset of the main event and advanced to sixth by the time the first caution of the race came out for a spinning Eric Stambaugh on turn two of lap five. Stambaugh was running third at the time.

After assuming fifth for the restart, Rahmer again went to the top to drive around Brian Montieth, Scott Geesey, and Jim Siegel to advance to second by the end of the fifth lap.

He drove under race-long leader Brian Leppo as the two swept through turns three and four of lap eight and led the rest of the way.

But all was not over, as Montieth caught Leppo in lapped traffic on lap 11, just before the second caution of the race for Siegel, who spun while running fifth on lap 12. On the restart, Doug Esh entered the picture. He closed in on both leaders, and he and Montieth swapped the runner-up spot several times between laps 13 and 22, when the third caution of the race came out for Glenndon Forsythe on turn two.

A final caution came out for Todd Zinn, who spun on turn one of lap 23. A fourth and fifth car joined the battle for the lead on the restart, with Chad Layton getting by Montieth for third on the next-to-last lap and Greg Hodnett settling for fifth.

Rahmer joined runner-up Esh as the only two-time winners in the Pigeon Hills this year, and chalked up career win number 145 at the Abbottstown oval.

"We were a little bit loose, and I saw (Montieth) was on the top and was second for a long time," said Rahmer. "I knew as long as I ran the top I’d be okay...and then I saw Doug...and he’s been operating real well... so I figured I’d better pick it up a little bit. I had sort-of slowed down through the center. But I didn’t have too much more left. I’m just glad I didn’t have to run any harder."

Sixth through tenth were Sam Schlosberg, Leppo, Alan Krimes, Josh Wells, and Bobby Weaver.

"Jim and Sandy (Kline) and all our sponsors have given us great stuff ...it’s just took us a little longer," said Rahmer on his relatively low win count in the early-going this season, "What we were doing last year we couldn’t do, so Moon (Byers) had to change some things around. Hopefully we get this stuff going. The guys are doing a good job."

"I’m not frustrated, I’m disappointed," Rahmer quickly added, "I’m one of the most consistent top-five cars this season, but that don’t mean (crap). I just want to win."

"When I got fired from Al’s (Hamilton) car, I needed a boot in the butt," Rahmer reflected, "You need to get re-motivated. When you get as old as I am, you know it takes a little more than it should. You should do the best you can every night. It just keeps getting harder to do that."

The win came ten years to the weekend after Steve Smith’s record 150th career win at Lincoln.

"What I said last week...and I meant no disrespect to Mr. Smith...was that I want to win," Rahmer said almost apologetically, "If you’d put as much time and effort into this like myself and my family and everybody I’ve driven for have...getting this close and just leaving it hanging there would be a little bit foolish."

"I’ll do the best I can to get it (the all-time win record), whether it’s this year or next year...or if they’ve got to put me in this thing out of a walker, I’m going to get that record!"

Heats for the 25 "410" sprinters were won by Stambaugh, Siegel and Leppo, with Chris Knopp winning the consolation.

After listening to Rahmer in victory lane, West York’s Jeff Rohrbaugh took to the top side of the track and stormed to his first-ever Lincoln "358" sprint win. Rohrbaugh started fourth and grabbed the race lead from Nate Hammaker exiting turn two of the second lap. His victory added a fourth division to his win record at Lincoln, with previous wins in the 410 sprints, semi-lates, and, most recently, the thundercars.

A torrid three-car battle for second was not settled until the final lap, with father Dale Hammaker edging out son Nate at the finish for second, with Todd Rittenhouse, Jr. crossing a close fourth and Cory Haas finishing fifth. Sixth through tenth were polesitter Randy Rhoads, Adam Wilt, Chad Trout, Mike Lehman, and Steve Owings.

Heats for the 37 "358" sprinters were won by Trout, Rhoads, Haas and Friday night Trail-Way winner Bob Anderson. Twin consolation events were won by Danny Dietrich and Lehman.

Biglersville’s Nat Tuckey scored a dramatic win in the thundercar feature for his second win of 2006 at Lincoln Speedway. Tuckey followed early race-leader Duane Watson, Mike Walls, and Neil Smith throughout most of the race before getting around Smith for the lead on the 19th lap. Smith fought back on the final lap and tried to squeeze under Tuckey in the final turns to the checkered, but was able to hold off the 36-time Lincoln winner by .47-seconds at the line. Afterwards it was revealed that Smith, who had taken the lead from Watson on the 15th lap, had lost his brakes in his valiant attempt to notch his first win of 2006.

Polesitter Rick Weaver lead the first lap just after a 14-car melee in turns three and four on the original start, forcing a complete restart alignment, moving many cars up from distant starting positions. Jim Martz Jr. then took over the top spot on the second lap before Watson took over on the sixth lap.

Watson ended up third, Walls fourth and Mike Slaybaugh fifth. Completing the top-10 were Ronnie Thomas, Bob Stough, Jim Martz Jr., Greg Emlet, and Rick Martz.

Heats for the 27 thundercars were won by Neil Smith, Duane Watson and Nat Tuckey, with Mike Walls winning the consolation.

Next Saturday night, May 13th, Lincoln Speedway switches to 7:30 PM starts for remainder of the season on YORK COUNTY RACING CLUB NIGHT featuring the 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints and Thundercars. In addition, it will be the annual running of the TRONE OUTDOOR ADVERTISING/YORK FLOORING MID-SEASON 358 SPRINT CHAMPIONSHIP. Gates will open at 5:30 PM.

RAHMER MOVES CLOSER TO RECORD WITH FIRST LINCOLN WIN;
Kaylor wins PA 305' s and Walls scores first in thundercars


ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 4/29/06 - "I will have the record," stated Fast
Freddie Rahmer about catching Lincoln Speedway's all-time winningest sprint
car driver Steve Smith's standard of 150 career wins.
Rahmer came out on top of one of the most thrilling sprint car races
in memory for his first win of the year in the 25-lap feature . The win was
the Salfordville driver's 144th career feature win in the Pigeon Hills.
"I will have the record," said the nine-time defending speedway
champion after earning his winning performance Saturday night. "I don't care
how long I have to race or how hard I gotta race but I will have the record.
We've been in this position before and we ended up winning 12 in-a-row. I
don't foresee that happening but this team can still win plenty of races."
Rahmer started 12th in the field but had his hands full the entire
distance battling with Doug Esh and Brian Montieth before putting himself
into position to take advantage of a lap 22 caution flag.
Brian Leppo led the first four laps off the front row before
yielding to Sam Schlosberg on the fifth circuit.
Schlosberg, celebrating his 24th birthday ran out front until lap 10
when Leppo drove back around the Greenlane driver in turn four to take over
the top spot again.
While Leppo set the pace, Josh Wells, Rahmer, Esh and Montieth were
giving the fans more than their monies worth, trying to move through the
field.
Wells moved into third on the 13th lap, but a lap later, Montieth
blew by Wells for the third spot as Rahmer moved into the top five.
Wells passed Schlosberg for the runner-up spot on the 17th lap in
heavy traffic and caught Leppo a lap later. Wells then passed Leppo in turn
two on the next circuit just before Leppo lost the handle of his sprinter in
turn four to bring out a yellow flag on lap 18.
Rahmer moved under Montieth for second spot on lap 20 as Wells drove
off from the field, looking for his second win of the year.
Rahmer closed in on Wells in lapped traffic with 22 laps complete
when Schlosberg and Scott Geesey tangled in turn four.
Wells took the high line on the restart with Rahmer driving under
the York driver to take the lead exiting turn two for the race winning pass.
Rahmer never looked back in scoring the $3,000 payday for his first win at
Lincoln for new car owners Jim and Sandy Kline.
"It was a lot of fun racing Doug and them guys," Rahmer commented in
victory lane. "They are actually racing and not just blocking like half of
these guys. It was a good race."
"We were pretty good on the bottom and the guys had the car real
good tonight," Rahmer added. "Every time I'd get a run, there'd be a lapped
car. Things just hadn't been working out our way but hopefully we'll just
keep at it. We're still a little bit off but we're getting there."
Montieth got around Wells on lap 24 to bring home the runner-up
finish with Esh coming home in the third spot. Wells faded to fourth just
ahead of Greg Hodnett.
Completing the top 10 were Jim Siegel, Stambaugh, Chad Layton, Niki
Young and Jeff Busby.
Heats for the 23 "410" sprinters were won by Jim Siegel, Eric
Stambaugh and Sam Schlosberg.
Randy Kaylor led the first 14 laps of the PA 305 Sprint car 20-lap
feature until 20th starting Richie Fitz took the lead and appeared headed to
his first career win in the division. Fitz, making just his second start in
the 305 sprints led laps 15 and 16 before spinning. On the restart, Fitz's
gallant effort ended upside down in the turn one fence. Kaylor, of Manheim,
led the final laps to secure the win, his second overall feature of the
year. He was a winner earlier this year at Path Valley Speedway Park.
Nathan Gramley finished second over Don Slack, Scott Smith and Jim
Wentz. Rounding out the top 10 finishers were Casey Cook, Gary Heckman,
Dusty Shatzer, Chad Myers and Todd Spangler.
Heats for the 25 Pennsylvania "305" sprinters were won by Jeff
Miller, Michael Alleman and Gary Heckman, with Todd Spangler winning the
consolation.
Mike Walls took the lead on lap seven of the 20-lap thundercar
feature and captured his first feature win of the season. Mike Zeigler, Jr
and Danny Beard led the early laps before giving way to Walls, who started
in the ninth spot. Walls sailed to the win ahead of Nat Tuckey, Sam
Gallagher, Bob Bare and Ronnie Thomas.
Completing the top 10 finishers were Mike Gladfelter II, Greg Emlet,
Bob Allen, Gino Comi and Choya Young. Only nine cars finished the event.
Heats for the 30 thundercars were won by Duane Watson, Nat Tuckey
and Mike Zeigler, Jr., with Jim Martz, Jr. winning the consolation.

Next Saturday night, May 6th, all three point divisions will be back
in action - the Cindy Rowe Auto Glass 410 Sprints, the 358 Sprints &
Thundercars - plus Kids Big Wheel Races at 7 PM. Gates will open at 5 PM.
This will mark the final 7 PM start before switching to the usual
7:30 PM starts on May 13th for the remainder of the season.

MOTHER NATURE ENDS LINCOLN SPEEDWAY'S SIX-RACE WIN STREAK;
410 Sprints, 358 Sprints & Thundercars all in action next Saturday, April 15th

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 4/8/06 - All streaks come to an end sometime.
Lincoln Speedway had been on a roll in 2006 and had produced six-straight
exciting shows on the 3/8th-mile high-bank Pigeon Hill oval without a miss.
But Mother Nature finally had her way Saturday, April 8th, as she
fought back Spring time weather in the form of rain, freezing rain, and
bone-chilling temperatures throughout the day.
The original forecast was for showers to come a stop later in the
afternoon - keeping hope alive for a seventh straight race. But by 2:30 PM
enough rain had fallen, coupled with the rapidly dropping temperature,
making track preparation impossible - even for master track preparation man
Fred Putney.
As has been the case for years, Lincoln Speedway promoters - Don &
Bob Leiby, along with Alan Kreitzer - will look for any reason to race
verses reasons not to race. Tonight's rain out breaks a streak of six
straight full programs to begin the 2006 season.
Next Saturday night, April 15th, Lincoln will have all three point
divisions back in action - the 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints and Thundercars at 7
PM. Gates will open at 5 PM.

ESH FIRST TO REPEAT IN 410 SPRINTS AT LINCOLN SPEEDWAY
Wagaman fifth winner in five races in thundercars; Rochelle sets new record in INEX Legends

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 3/25/06 - The famous “wing dance” told the tale after a wild 25-lap 410 sprint feature in the first night race of the year at Lincoln Speedway Saturday.

Doug “the Hammer” Esh took advantage of a 17th-lap tangle involving Chad Layton and Fred Rahmer to advance from fourth to second and then a 21st-lap spin by World of Outlaw star Daryn Pittman to drive around leader Eric Stambaugh on the restart and storm to his second win of the year in the Pigeon Hills.

Points handicapping placed Esh seventh for the start. He drove by Cory Haas to enter the top five on lap two, then got by Danny Dietrich and Brian Montieth to advance to third on lap five.

One lap earlier, fourth-starting Sam Schlosberg got by Stambaugh for the lead on a restart following a caution for Pat Cooper, who came to a stop on the front stretch. Schlosberg led the next five laps before Stambaugh reclaimed the lead, a position he maintained until yielding the Esh on lap 21.

Esh followed Stambaugh and Schlosberg as they raced for the lead, but gave up third to a charging Chad Layton on lap 11. Layton and Esh both got by Schlosberg for second and third on lap 13, but then 11th-starting Fred Rahmer got by Esh for third two laps later. Just when it looked like the eventual winner would have to settle for a solid top five run, disaster struck for two of the most famous cars in sprint car racing.

Stambaugh’s lead was 2.61 seconds when Rahmer and Layton got together in turn four of lap 17. The contact flattened the right rear of Rahmer’s J&S Fabrication/Miller Brothers Chevrolet #22 and left rear tire of Layton’s York Excavating Company/Apple Dealerships #12. Both drivers made tire changes and joined the rear of the field, with Rahmer coming back through the field to finish sixth and Layton recovering the finish eighth.

Esh assumed second for the restart, and chased Stambaugh for the next four laps before Pittman, who had advanced from 14th starting spot, spun in turn four while running fourth.

On the restart, Esh drove to the edge of the cushion to get around the Swope’s Salvage & Recycling #4, then held off repeated challenges of Stambaugh through two more cautions over the last four laps to score the .50-second win, the 11th of his career at Lincoln.

“Eric raced me hard,” said the happy winner in victory lane, “It was good, clean racing. We used to race together in micros. He’s one of the best competitors out here...he’s just struggling a little bit.”

“We did get lucky there,” added Esh, “Layton got good around the bottom and got by me, and I should have moved down. Then Fred got by me, and I don’t know what happened down there (the Layton-Rahmer tangle). We got lucky. We weren’t the best car at that point, and there’s a lot of friends here that have been coming for a long, long time...and we couldn’t for them, but we did tonight.”

Stambaugh settled for second, with 13th-starting Lance Dewease crossing third, 12th-starting Greg Hodnett fourth, and 20th-starting Chris Knopp fifth. Completing the top ten were Rahmer, Alan Krimes, Layton, Scott Geesey, and Pittman.

Heats for the 27 “410" sprinters were won by Stambaugh, Esh and Steve Clabaugh, with Brian Leppo winning the consolation event.

Jason Rochelle drove to his second win in as many nights (Path Valley on Friday) to remain undefeated in the 2006 Glick Fire Equipment Company campaign with his record-breaking performance in the non-stop 15-lap INEX Legends feature. Rochelle bested teammate Ronnie Dunstan in an event which completed a caution-free night for the Legends, with former record-holder Tim Tomson finishing third, Steve Nederostek fourth, and 15th-starting Rod Kistler fifth.

The non-stop feature saw 28 of 29 starters finish the race. Rochelle’s 15-lap time of 5 minutes, 16.67 seconds shattered the old record of 5:30.39 set by Tomson on September 1, 2001.

Heats for the 27 INEX Legends were won by Rochelle, Josh Morrow and Dunstan.

Gettysburg’s Craig Wagaman out-dueled Mike Walls for 14 straight laps en route to his 22nd career win in the 20-lap thundercar feature. Wagaman was the fifth different driver to arrive in victory lane in as many races.

Wagaman, who started third, trailed polesitter Danny Beard and sixth-starting Mike Walls after the first lap, and watched as Walls took over on the second lap. Beard regained the lead on the third lap as Wagaman then got around Walls for second on the fifth lap. Wagaman then slipped by Beard for the top spot on the sixth lap with 18-time career winner Walls falling in behind on the seventh lap.

From there the top-pair dueled high and low at both ends of the speedway over the remainder of the race with Wagaman holding on for a .67-second win, his first of 2006.

10th-starting Neil Smith finished third, 16th-starting Jim Martz Jr. fourth and opening day winner Duane Watson fifth. Completing the top-10 were Rick Weaver, Dan Zechman, Smoke Christine, Mike Gladfelter and Mike Slaybaugh.

Heats for the 26 thundercars were won by Wagaman, Walls, and Christine, with Bob Stough winning the consolation event.

Next Saturday night, April 1st, Lincoln will run-off it’s second evening show of 2006 featuring the 410 Sprint and Thundercar regulars, along with the former Silver Spring Limited Late Model division cars at 6 PM.. Gates will open at 4 PM.

DEWEASE BECOMES FIRST CENTRAL PA REPEAT WINNER IN LINCOLN SPRINT MAIN
McClelland wins first “358" race of Lincoln career; Nat Tuckey picks up career win #11 in Thundercars

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 3/18/06 - It was at Williams Grove’s season opener that Donnie Kreitz, Jr. proclaimed Lance Dewease the new “king of daytime racing.”
On Saturday he affirmed it, advancing from his ninth starting spot to become the fourth different winner in four races at Lincoln Speedway.
Dewease, who has passed more cars than anybody at both Lincoln and in Central PA this year, was sixth by the end of the first lap, passed Josh Wells for fifth on lap two, and was running third by the time the first caution flag came out for a four-car tangle involving Chad Layton, Cory Haas, Wells, and Doug Esh on lap seven.
Both Dewease and 12th-starting invader Joey Saldana got around Eric Stambaugh for second and third on the restart, and Dewease closed on last week’s winner and race-long leader Rick Lafferty over the next six laps before a caution came out for Brian Montieth, who popped a tire after hitting the turn two wall on lap 12.
It was on the restart that 14th-starting Niki Young made his presence known, driving around Saldana for third and closing in on Dewease as both cars reeled in Lafferty. Dewease slid under Lafferty for the race lead exiting turn four of lap 18, and Young made the pass on Lafferty for second two laps later. By that time, Dewease had opened a 1.45-second lead. But a 22nd-lap caution for a spinning Glenndon Forsythe in turn three slowed the pace and allowed Young to pull in behind the lapped car of Clabaugh just behind Dewease. Young made short work of Clabaugh, but showed Dewease the fast lane in trying to grab the lead.
“I was very fortunate, I’ll tell you what, Niki Young has come a long way,” exclaimed Dewease in victory lane, “He made a mistake by showing me inside line and not going by me. I shut the door on him and found the rubber. That’s what made it for us. He found the rubber before any of us, and was coming up through there, and he just didn’t make the pass on me. He’ll learn that. When you’ve got it, you need to go. He’s come a long way and he’s going to have a good year.”
“Niki Young had the best car here by far,” Dewease continued, “He just didn’t make the pass when he should have and showed me the line.”
“I was pretty good on the bottom early,” reflected Dewease. “But the top, once you got going, was good and Lafferty was pretty good up there. But we were getting loose, and I had to just follow him around the top. When (Young) first showed me his nose, I wasn’t sure if he was a lapped car or what, so I didn’t come down right away. But I could tell by the second time he showed me his nose he wasn’t no lapped car...and he was coming. Then I had to get back down to the bottom.”
“The track was pretty racey there early.” said Dewease. We struggled here last week and we were very upset with our race car...we made some changes for this week and we definitely made it better. We weren’t as good as we needed to be.”
“This whole team has been working hard all winter and all this year so far, and I’m happy.”
Dewease’s 27th career Lincoln win was the first for car owner Pete Postupak.
Young settled for second, with Greg Hodnett coming from 13th-starting spot to finish third, Saldana fourth, and Lafferty fifth. Sixth through tenth were Fred Rahmer, Alan Krimes (who came from 23rd-starting spot), Sam Schlosberg, Chris Knopp, and Eric Stambaugh.
“I just want to thank the fans for coming out and support us like they do when it’s cold out here like this,” Dewease said with a laugh, “I stood over there on top the trailer watching the heats and it was cold! We don’t like the cold any more than anybody else.”
Heats for the 25 “410" sprinters were won by Brian Leppo, Lafferty and Wells, with Michael Carber winning the consolation event.
Brad McClelland started on the pole and dominated in claiming his first career Lincoln win in the season opener for the “358" sprint cars.
McClelland took advantage of some St. Patrick’s weekend racing luck of the Irish to draw pill #1 for the start of the feature, then got a timely caution as Chad Criswell was closing when the two entered lapped traffic on lap 13.
On the restart, McClelland pulled away, leaving the rest of the field to race for second. Matt Boland drove by Criswell for second as the leaders crossed the flag stand to complete lap 14. That’s how they finished, with Boland second, Criswell third, and Mike Bittinger and Danny Dietrich completing the top five. Sixth through tenth were 15th-starting Todd Rittenhouse, Jr., 14th-starting Bobby Howard, 18th-starting Steve Owings, 21st-starting Billy Dietrich, and Rory Janney.
Heats for the 40 “358" sprinters were won by Bittinger, McClelland, Tim Wagaman and Jimmy Layton. Twin consolation events were won by Joe Ilg and Owings.
Biglerville’s Nat Tuckey blew around Danny Beard on a 15th-lap restart in the first and second turns for the lead and held on in a two-lap dash to the checkered to pick up his first win of 2006 in the 20-lap thundercar feature.
Polesitter Gene Knaub led the opening lap before third-starting Danny Beard took over the top spot on the second lap. Tuckey, who started seventh, got around Knaub for second on the third lap and chased Beard over the first half of the race. Knaub fought back to take over second place from Tuckey on the 12th lap and made it a three-car battle for the lead as the laps wound down.
Tuckey took over second place once again just before the caution waved on the 15th lap, setting up Tuckey’s winning pass on the restart. A final caution with two laps-to-go set up a dramatic dash to the checkered with Tuckey hanging-on for his 11th career thundercar win at Lincoln Speedway by .72-seconds over Beard.
Duane Watson came on strong at the end to finish third, with 18th-starting Sam Gallagher crossing fourth and Neil Smith fifth. Completing the top-10 were Dan Zechman, Tom Slusser Jr., Bob Bare, Mike Walls and Jim Rost.
Heats for the 28 thundercars were won by Knaub, Bob Stough and Mike Slaybaugh, with Josh Schrum winning the consolation event.
Next Saturday March 25th, Lincoln will run-off it’s first evening show of 2006 featuring the 410 Sprint and Thundercar regulars being joined by the INEX Legends at 6 PM.. Gates will open at 4 PM.

HODNETT HOLDS OFF MONTIETH, AND THEN RAHMER TO WIN LINCOLN MAIN;
Third-generation driver Dan Zechman claims third of career in thundercars


ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 3/4/06 - Greg Hodnett credited everyone but himself after picking up his first win of the season in the 25-lap “410" sprint car feature at Licnoln Speedway Saturday afternoon.
The Tennessee transplant now living in York drew pill #1 after finishing second in his heat, started on the pole, and led every lap for his 15th career win in the Pigeon Hills. But the daytime surface had more than one groove, and his win was far from easy.
In the early stages of the race, Hodnett held off the repeated challenges of sixth-starting Brian Montieth, who drove against the cushion to advance to third by the end of the first lap and caught fourth-starting Donnie Kreitz, Jr. for the runner-up spot on lap two. Montieth closed and nearly drove around Hodnett before getting out of shape exiting turn four of lap four. Montieth lost ground to the leader, but held on to second and was there for the restarts after a seventh-lap spin for Josh Wells on turn three and a ninth-lap restart after opening day winner Doug Esh came to a stop with a flat tire on the backstretch.
“We had a really good starting spot,” said Hodnett in victory lane, “It seems to be a pretty lucky position to be on the front row. But Tim, Matt, Jason, Bob, Scott, and the guys did a great job with the car. I just had to stay out front.”
Second-starting Niki Young ran a solid third from laps two through nine before yielding to defending track champ and eighth-starting Fred Rahmer on lap 10. Three laps later, Rahmer pulled the slingshot on Montieth to claim the runner-up spot in turns three and four. At the time, Hodnett’s lead was 1.14 seconds. A 17th-lap restart for Brian Leppo, who came to a stop with steering linkage problems on turn four, put Rahmer on Hodnett’s back bumper. But Hodnett was up to the challenge, and pulled away to a .59-second win.
“I know Fred was coming there on the bottom for a while, and he moved me down there in turns three and four. We got to goin’ pretty decent down there,” added Hodnett, “I don’t know what it would’ve been like to start tenth or 12th, but we’ll take it.”
Rahmer settled for second with Montieth third, Young fourth, and T.J. Stutts fifth. Rounding out the top ten were 14th-starting Lance Dewease, Kreitz, Alan Krimes, Chad Layton, and Chris Knopp.
He’ll have start further back next Saturday (3/11), when Lincoln returns to handicapped racing after two weeks of drawing for starting spots.
Heats for the 25 “410" sprinters were won by Scott Geesey, Kreitz, and Niki Young, with Doug Esh setting a new five-lap track record in the consolation event.
Esh’s five-lap time of 1:08.74 broke a decade-old record of 1:10.23 set by Mark Kinser during a World of Outlaws show on June 3, 1995. It was the first “410" sprint car record set at Lincoln since the new 1,375-pound minimum weight rule took effect in Central Pennsylvania at the beginning of the 2003 racing season.
Littlestown’s Dan Zechman took advantage of race-leader Greg Emlet’s miscue in turn four of the 19th lap to pick up his first win of 2006 on the 20-lap thundercar feature.
Outside frontrow-starter Tim Fake grabbed the lead at the outset and led the first three laps before seventh-starting Bob Stough grabbed the top spot on the fourth lap. His lead was short-lived as fifth-starting Emlet wrestled under Stough for the lead on the next lap. From there Emlet held off Stough and 12-starting Nat Tuckey over the later stages of the race in search of his first career thundercar win.
But one bobble exiting turn four with the white flag waving ended Emlet’s run to the checkered and allowed 11th-starting Dan Zechman the opening he needed to grab the lead and eventual win one lap later by .81-seconds over Emlet.
10th-starting Sam Gallagher finished third, Stough fourth and 8th-starting Neil Smith fifth. Completing the top-10 were Tom Walls Jr., Mike Walls, Mike Gladfelter, Nat Tuckey and Jim Martz, Jr..
Heats for the 26 thundercars were won by Bob Stough, Nat Tuckey, and Craig Wagaman, who set an eight-lap track record of 2:40.44 (old record was held by Steve Clabaugh [2:40.57 set on March 3, 2001]). Mike Walls won the consolation event.
Next Saturday March 11th, Lincoln will run-off one final two-division afternoon show featuring both the 410 Sprints and Thundercars.

"THE HAMMER" NAILS DOWN "ICEBREAKER 30" SEASON OPENER AT LINCOLN;
Duane Watson claims second straight opening day win in thundercars


ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 2/25/06 -"The Hammer" took a giant step toward his
goal of a 2006 Lincoln track championship by claiming the "Icebreaker 30"
Northeast season opener at Lincoln Speedway Saturday afternoon.
Lancaster's Doug Esh, who finished runner-up in the 2005 points
chase in the Pigeon Hills, nailed down the opening day win after starting on
the front row and leading every lap. His margin of victory in the final
three-lap dash to the checkered was 1.92 seconds. His 10th career win
placed him all alone in 29th spot on the all-time Lincoln win list.
"It's all about the draw (in day racing)," said the happy winner in
victory lane, "We got lucky and started up front, but Dennis (Kohler) had
the car just awesome. We could just stick right around the bottom and he
kept telling me we were pulling away, and I didn't feel like we were going
that fast. But it's just good to be here."
While Esh was the class of the field and never seriously challenged,
Pipersville's Michael Carber turned a lot of heads by holding off repeated
challenges of nine-time track champ Fred Rahmer to finish second. Carber
actually yielded to Rahmer on a third lap restart, but drove back under Fast
Freddie when Rahmer washed high in turns one and two of lap five.
"I thought it was Donnie Kreitz back there," said Esh about Carber,
"but he must've got by Fred. Hopefully, Fred's going to have a down year so
we can have an 'up' year, but Fred's going to be tough, and Mike Carber's a
good racer and he's going to be tough."
The most dramatic racing of the day came over the final two laps,
when Rahmer again tried a high move in turns one and two to get around
Carber. Rahmer was not able to get by, hanging himself out for passes by
both Chad Layton and 16th-starting Lance Dewease, who crossed third and
fourth ahead respectively. Rahmer settled for fifth, with Greg Hodnett, Jim
Siegel, Donnie Kreitz, Jr., Brian Leppo, and Chris Knopp completing the top ten.
"We're on a championship run this year, and we gotta get the day
shows out of the way," said Esh, "It's just awful nice to win one...I can tell you."
"This place is amazing," said Esh when talking about the huge
opening-day crowd, "They fill this place...it doesn't matter if it's going
to rain, the rain's coming, it did rain...it don't matter, it's just an
awesome crowd. They're great fans. Hopefully, they're rooting for me and
not Fred or Leppo, or any of them."
With a cold front forecast for Central Pennsylvania in the late
afternoon, Lincoln ran the two-division show in two and-a-half hours.
Heats for the 24 "410" sprinters were won by Jim Siegel, Brian Leppo
and Chad Layton.

Abbottsown's Duane Watson picked up his second consecutive Spring
Thaw 20 win for the thundercars.
Watson, who started third, dropped to fourth on the first lap, but
then charged back to pass race-long leader Dan Zechman for the lead on the
fourth lap and then drove away from the field en route to his ninth career
thundercar win.
Mike Walls, who started ninth, passed Zechman on the 15th lap for
second and chased Watson the rest of the way, finishing 1.42-seconds behind
at the checkered. Zechman settled for third, with Sam Gallagher coming from
the 11th-starting spot to cross fourth and Tom Slusser Jr. Fifth.
Completing the top-10 were Neil Smith, polesitter Bob Stough, Craig
Wagaman, Mike Slaybaugh and Tom Walls, Jr..
Heats for the 23 Thundercars sprinters were won by Stough, Zechman
and Watson.

Over the next two Saturday's (March 4th and March 11th), Lincoln
will run-off two-division afternoon shows featuring both the 410 Sprints and
Thundercars.

RAHMER CLAIMS NINTH LINCOLN TRACK TITLE IN 12 YEARS;
Billy Dietrich wins first 358 title; Ron Schultz closes out career with
first thundercar title


YORK, PA, 11/19/05 - Lincoln Speedway track champion and special
year-end awards were handed out at the Holiday Inn Holidome in York Saturday
night, November 19th. Close to 400 people were in attendance to watch the
crowning of the 410 sprint, 358 sprint and thundercar champions for 2005.
The top ten finishers in the season -long point series for all three
divisions were honored as well as special awards for each division.

RAHMER CLAIMS RECORD-TYING NINTH CHAMPIONSHIP
For the ninth time in 12 years, Salfordville's Fred Rahmer, driving
the Joe Harz-owned Miller Brothers/Media Camping Center/Material Handling
Systems No.88H sprinter, was crowned the 2005 champion in the Cindy Rowe
Auto Glass 410 Sprint Series.
Highlighting Rahmer's championship season were wins in the first
three races of the year, opening night of Pennsylvania Speedweek (June
25th), Manheim Auto Auction Night July 30th (his 350th career sprint car
win), and the Bobby Abel Memorial (which locked up the title on September
3rd). All told, Rahmer recorded nine wins, 18 top-five, and 22 top-10
finishes in 23 events at the Pigeon Hills oval.
In the process, he upped his all-time Lincoln win total to 143,
moving him to within seven wins of Steve Smith's record of 150 career wins.
His ninth track title was accomplished in the span of a dozen years, six
less than Smith's nine championships in the span of 18 years.
Lancaster's Doug Esh completed a solid year by capturing two wins,
12 top five, and 18 top ten finishes on route to runner-up honors in the
season-ending point standings. Esh, Lincoln's all-time winningest 358 sprint
driver, upped his 410 win total to nine, tying him with Lynn Paxton for 30th
on Lincoln's career win list.
Tennessee transplant Greg Hodnett was the second-winningest driver
of 2005 with four victories, 16 top five, and 19 top-ten finishes en route
to a third place finish in the season-long point series in his first season
driving for Al and Betty Hamilton. Among Hodnett's major victories in the
Pigeon Hills in '05 were the All Star Circuit of Champions race on June 11th
and the Gohn Memorial on July 16th. He also dominated every lap of the
season-ending Kenny Weld Memorial on October 23rd . Hodnett climbed to 19th
all the all-time Lincoln win list with 14.
Eric Stambaugh won twice and finished fourth in points, followed by
2004 Sportsmanship award winner Niki Young, who was unable to win in '05 but
remained consistent all season, including five top fives and 11 top tens.
Sixth through tenth in Cindy Rowe Auto Glass points were Brian Leppo
(who scored his first two career wins at Lincoln), Brian Montieth, Jason
Johnson, Josh Wells (who claimed his first career Lincoln win to become the
175th different winner in Lincoln history), and Jim Siegel (who scored
dominating wins twice in '05, including the 53rd Anniversary Show on May
25th and the Weldon Sterner Memorial on June 18th).
The other winner at Lincoln in '05 was Jeff Shepard, who claimed his
seventh career victory at Lincoln in the Apple Motorsports sprinter on April 16th.
Rahmer easily outdistanced the rest of the Lincoln contingent by
leading 189 laps during 2005. Hodnett led 83 laps, followed by Jim Siegel
(who led 78 laps, mostly in his dominating victories), Brian Leppo (55), and
Eric Stambaugh (48).
Seventeen different drivers led feature laps in 2005, with eight
different winners in the 23 races. Twenty-nine different drivers won
qualifying events in 2005. Rahmer led the way with seven heat wins.

BILLY DIETRICH WINS FIRST 358 TITLE
In a season-long points battle that went down to the final race,
Gettysburg's Billy Dietrich won the biggest race of the year (the 358
Championship Race on September 10th) to claim his first Lincoln 358 title.
The win was his only one of the season, but his ten top tens and seven top
fives in 13 races made the difference. His win tied his dad (Dan) for 10th
on the all-time Lincoln 358 win list with four.
2004 champ Chad Trout scored two wins on route to his second-place
finish in season points. One of the wins was the season opener, the other
coming in a July 16th make-up feature on Manheim Auto Auction Night July 30th.
2002 and 2003 track champ Cory Haas picked up one win, six top
fives, and ten top tens to finish third in points, despite failing to
qualify for two shows. His lone win vaulted Haas to second on the all-time
Lincoln win list with Cris Eash and Mike Lehman (10 wins).
Sportsmanship award winner Howie Locke failed to win or record a
top-five finish during the season, but his four top tens and consistent
qualifying landed him fourth in points. Brad McClelland was also consistent
all season (six top fives and eight top tens) and finished fifth in the
season-long point standings.
Overall, there were nine different winners in 13 races in the 358
division. Other 358 feature winners were Chad Layton (who led all drivers
with three wins), Mike Lehman (2 wins), most improved driver Scott Geesey
(first career Lincoln win), and Joe Ilg (who returned to racing after two
years off), Alan Krimes, and Judd Shepard (who claimed his second career
Lincoln win over 47 others on Central Maryland Pools Night July 2nd).
Sixth through tenth in season points were Danny Dietrich, Keith
Prutzman, Scott Geesey, Rusty Pressley, and Mike Bittinger.

345 points. Shultz won four races himself, to along with 15 top fives and 24
top tens in 25 events. Shultz's four wins tied him with Mike Zeigler, Jr.
for tenth on the all-time Lincoln win list with 13.

an eight-place tie with three-time champ Bobby Beard on the all-time win list.

winner with six, including the season finale on October 23rd. Neil Smith,

win in '05 to become the 72nd different thundercar winner at Lincoln), and
most improved driver Dan Zechman (who recorded his first two career wins in
'05 to become the first third-generation driver to score wins in Lincoln history).

HODNETT ENDS LINCOLN SEASON BY CLAIMING ANNUAL KENNY WELD MEMORIAL;
Rohrbaugh closes out brief thundercar career with second win in-a-row


ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 10/23/05 - It was a good night all around for Greg
Hodnett in winning the season finale at Lincoln Speedway Sunday night.
First of all, the Hamilton team had the services of Tim Elwell, who
joined the team for the first time at Lincoln Sunday night. Secondly,
Hodnett got a front row starting spot after two drivers (Alan Krimes and
Doug Esh) failed to qualify in their heats and make the inversion at the
front of the field for the 40-lap Kenny Weld Memorial. Third of all,
Hodnett grabbed the lead at the outset and led every lap, adding $2,405 in
lap money to the $5,000 winner's share.
And finally, car owner Al Hamilton announced that the Memphis,
Tennessee transplant now living in Thomasville will again be the driver of
the Manheim Auto Auction/Wirtgen America/Hamilton Motorsports mount in 2006.
"Why not?," responded a happy Hamilton when asked about Hodnett's
return as driver in '06. "It was a good win here tonight...Greg certainly
did a good job tonight, he stayed out of trouble and ended up on the front
row."
"Right now I'll be back with these guys next year," confirmed
Hodnett in victory lane. "Hopefully, we'll come out strong and, you know,
and do as good as we can."
Though he had problems on restarts, Hodnett seemed to pull away at
will on the long runs between the five cautions and three red flags which
marred the Memorial event.
"The restarts were killing us," said Hodnett. "We needed longer
runs."
"We had a little bit harder tire on than most guys, and were banking
on stretching it out and getting it on the start. I was having a hard time
getting the front on the ground on the starts and it was costing me down the
straightaways. Layton got along side of us, but luckily I was good enough
to pull away."
"We started on the front and that was most of it," added Hodnett.
"We had great track position and the guys did a good job all night."
"It's been a tough year, but hopefully, we'll cap it off here the
last couple of races."
A caution in front of the flagstand at the start involved track
champ Fred Rahmer, Brian Montieth, Rick Lafferty, and Alan Krimes. Rahmer
went to the pits to replace a flat left rear and was forced to the back for
the restart. Driving his final Lincoln race in the Joe and Peggy Harz
No.88H, Rahmer stormed through the field to finish second at the end.
Hodnett grabbed the lead in the first two turns with polesitter Jim
Siegel settling in for second over the first seven laps until a red flag
came out for Blaine Heimbach and Doug Esh, who both rolled onto their side
simultaneously while running sixth and seventh in turn three. On the
restart, fourth-starting Chad Layton wrestled second from Siegel, with Eric
Stambaugh, and Lance Dewease running third through fifth for the next four
laps until Glenndon Forsythe came to a stop on the front stretch on lap 13.
The top five was still running in that order when Siegel got out of shape
and flipped on turn three of lap 16.
Stambaugh assumed third for the restart, with Dewease now fourth and
Brian Leppo fifth. It was at that point that Rahmer, battling an
ill-handling race car, entered the top ten.
On lap 19, Stevie Smith got sideways on turn two and collected Sam
Schlosberg, who rolled onto his side, bringing out the red flag for a third
time.
Hodnett continued to dominate through cautions on lap 32 for Krimes
(who stopped on the front stretch) and lap 35 for Niki Young (who shredded a
tire on the front stretch), and crossed 1.54 seconds ahead of Rahmer, who
slid under Leppo to enter the top five on lap 34, passed both Layton and
Stambaugh for third on the 35th-lap restart, and got by Dewease for second
on lap 36. By then, Hodnett's lead was 1.23 seconds.
Dewease settled for third, with Layton fourth and Stambaugh fifth.
Sixth through tenth were Keith Kauffman, Leppo, hard charger Josh Wells (who
started 18th), Stevie Smith, and Mark Smith.
Sprint car heats were won by Stevie Smith, Wells, Brook Weibley and
Schlosberg.
Doug Esh won the B-Main. Setting fast time in time trials over the
32-car field was Lucas Wolfe, with a one-lap time of 13.196-seconds (102.304
MPH).
York's Jeff Rohrbaugh collected his second win in-a-row in the
20-lap thundercar season finale. Rohrbaugh started on the pole and out-raced
outside frontrow starter Rick Weaver into the first turn at the drop of the
green and led the entire distance to become a two-time winner in thundercar
action in 2005.
Neil Smith, who was collected in an accident on a first lap,
returned from the rear of the field to chase Rohrbaugh in a final two-lap
dash to the checkered. But Rohrbaugh was too strong on this final event for
2005 and took the checkered .59-seconds ahead for the win.
Smith settled for second and was followed by Mike Slaybaugh, Mike
Zeigler Jr. and Duane Watson. Completing the top-10 were Ed Canupp, Robert
Bopst, Jerry Pownall, Weaver and Larry Niederer.
Rohrbaugh announced in victory lane that he will joining the 358
Sprint ranks in 2006 by driving the potent Roy Vincent No.7V sprinter.
Rohrbaugh has won in semi-lates, 410 sprints, thundercars and now goes after
a win in the 358's in 2006.
Heats for the 34 Thundercars on hand were won by David Prunkl, Mike
Walls and Duane Watson, with Tim Fake winning the consolation.

RAIN POSTPONES WELD MEMORIAL TO SUNDAY, OCTOBER 23RD

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 10/22/04 - Rain through-out the Central Pennsylvania area
has forced Lincoln Speedway promoters Don & Bob Leiby, and Alan Kreitzer, to
postpone Saturday's 9th Annual Kenny Weld Memorial to Sunday evening,
October 23rd. Gates will open once again at 4:30 PM, with hot laps getting
underway at 6 PM and time trials commencing at 6:30 PM.

It was agreed upon earlier that there will be NO conflict with Williams
Grove's Fall Fest which was re-scheduled for Sunday, October 23rd.

If weather would force the postponement of Sunday's October 23rd make-up,
the Weld Memorial would then be re-scheduled to next Saturday night, October
29. Gates would open once again at 4:30 PM, with hot laps getting underway
at 6 PM and time trials commencing at 6:30 PM.

Lincoln Speedway Weld Memorial update

Friday - October 21, 2005
LINCOLN SPEEDWAY
Abbottstown, PA

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 10/21/05 - Due to the threat of rain, Lincoln Speedway
promoters have said they will make a decision to run the Saturday, October
22nd Kenny Weld Memorial no later than 2 PM Saturday afternoon. If the
Sunday rain date, October 23rd, is then used, there will be NO racing at
Williams Grove to conflict with the race.
If, rain would wipe out Sunday's rain date, the Kenny Weld Memorial will
then be rescheduled for the following Saturday, October 29th.


REMNANTS OF TAMMY POSTPONE KENNY WELD MEMORIAL;
Season Finale Scheduled for October 22nd


ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 10/08/05 - Remnants of Tropical Storm Tammy moved
into the Central Pennsylvania area Friday morning and lingered through the
night and into Saturday, forcing Lincoln Speedway promoters Don & Bob Leiby
and Alan Kreitzer to postpone Saturday evening's 9th Annual Kenny Weld
Memorial for the 410 Sprints.
With several inches of rain already in the ground, and a forecast
for more into Saturday evening, the decision to use the scheduled rain-date
came quickly. That makes the Saturday evening October 22nd racing program in
two weeks the final event in 2005 at the Pigeon Hills oval.
With the rain-out of the thundercar portion of the Saturday evening
racing program, Cashtown's Ron Shultz wrapped up his first-ever Thundercar
track championship with one race remaining on the Lincoln schedule. But the
battle for the remaining top-10 spots are still up for grabs as they join
the 410 sprints in the season final in two weeks.
Lincoln Speedway will be dark next Saturday night, October 15th,
before returning to action one final time in 2005 the following week,
Saturday, October 22nd.
The 410 Sprinters will then go after the $5,000 top prize in the
40-lap Weld Memorial in the final test of the 2005 season. They will be
joined by the thundercar regulars who are still battling for the top-10
spots in the championship point standings.

The scheduled start-time for the October 22nd finale has been
changed. Gates will open at 4:30 PM, with warm-ups at 6 PM, and time trials
for the 410 Sprinters set to get underway at 6:30 PM.

STAMBAUGH HOLDS OFF CHARGING RAHMER IN MANUFACTURERS NIGHT MAIN;
Jeff Rohrbaugh claims first career thundercar win


ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 9/23/05 - "I looked up at the board, but it was
only because I saw a yellow car underneath me there before that caution came
out, and looking at scoreboard was just confirmation."
That was how Eric Stambaugh described the challenges he faced by
nine-time and 2005 track champ Fred Rahmer in holding off the 143-time
winner over the final 10 laps of Saturday night's 17th Annual Hank Gentzler
Memorial Manufacturers Appreciation Race at Lincoln Speedway.
Time trials and a four-car invert at the front of the field put
several top guns at the front of the 25-lap feature. Outside front row
starter Brian Montieth drove around polesitter Greg Hodnett in the first two
turns and led the first five laps. Stambaugh followed Montieth into second
on the opening lap, and chased down Montieth to grab the race lead as the
cars exited turn four of the sixth lap.
Montieth returned the favor two laps later, reclaiming the top spot,
only to have Stambaugh drive back around the Premier Auto Works/Auto Locator
#21 as they entered lapped traffic on lap nine.
Meanwhile, sixth-starting Rahmer joined the battle, getting by
Montieth on lap 11. At the time, Stambaugh's lead was .63-seconds.
Stambaugh used the bottom to perfection, holding off Rahmer until
the only caution of the race came out on lap 16 when Ryan Bolhke spun in
turn four, two turns after doing a "360" and continuing down the
backstretch, only to spin with front end damage.
Stambaugh held off Rahmer's charge on the restart, and again
returned to the bottom to open up a 1.23-second lead with five laps to go.
As the two approached lapped traffic with the laps counting down, Stambaugh
moved to the top side, allowing Rahmer to close on the bottom.
The Swope's Salvage & Recycling/Control Systems 21/Route 30 Seafood
#4 was up to the challenge, blocking Rahmer off every turn to cross
28-hundredths of-a-second ahead of the Harz #88H for his second win of the
year and third of his career in the Pigeon Hills.
"My car really wasn't on those last ten laps. I was just kinda'
treading water," said Stambaugh in victory lane, "I've been passed enough
times by Fred to know how to get in the way. I tried it a couple times, and
I guess it worked out."
"I moved my wing back all the way and then I couldn't keep the front
end on the ground, and I was just thankful to finish where I finished,"
Stambaugh continued. He credited crew chief Jeff Brown for the win, also
thanking car owners Floyd and Joyce Swope for the chance to race their car.
Lance Dewease passed Brian Montieth with two to go to finish third,
with Montieth settling for fourth and Greg Hodnett crossing fifth. Sixth
through tenth were Lucas Wolfe, Doug Esh (who flipped while leading his heat
and made repairs to win the "B" Main), Alan Krimes, Brian Leppo, and Jason
Johnson.
Before the feature, the qualifiers received more than $80,000 in
manufacturers products and services gathered by Denise Gentzler and her
staff at Hank's Performance Products. Both Hard Luck award winner Stevie
Smith (who blew an engine in time trials) and Jason Johnson, frequent
travelers around the nation, commented on never seeing any other race of its
kind in the nation.
Winning the Media Camping Center Heat was Johnson, the Apple
Automotive Group Heat was Rahmer, York Excavating Company Heat was Josh
Wells, and In Memory of Hank Gentzler Heat was Cliff Brian.
Setting fast time in the Al Hamilton Used Truck Sales Time Trials
over the 31-car field was Lucas Wolfe, with a one-lap time of 13.128-seconds
(102.834 MPH).
The Port Royal vs. Lincoln challenge among the top drivers from each
track in season points was won by Lincoln. The challenge, an annual event
included as part of Hank Gentzler Memorial Manufacturers' Appreciation
Night, pits the top drivers in points from each of the speedways who qualify
for the feature against each other.
York's Jeff Rohrbaugh has won races in semi-late models and 410
sprints at Lincoln Speedway. Now he has a win in thundercars. Rohrbaugh, who
started third, grabbed the lead from polesitter Tim Fake on the second lap
and then led the rest of the way to pick up the win in the 20-lap thundercar
feature.
A spin by Chaz Walls on the third lap collected 9 other cars in the
melee, allowing eighth-starting Neil Smith to move into second place with
Jim Martz Jr. following. Smith chased Rohrbaugh the entire distance around
the cushion to no avail as Rohrbaugh took the checkered .53-seconds ahead
for the win.
Defending thundercar champ Mike Zeigler Sr. finished third with
point-leader Ron Shultz and Danny Beard completing the top-five. Rounding
out the top-10 were Mike Slaybaugh, Jim Rost, Bob Stough, Randy Doty and
Will Walls.
Heats for the 28 Thundercars on hand were won by Shultz, Mike Walls
and Martz.
Lincoln Speedway will take next weekend off before presenting the
9th Annual Kenny Weld Memorial on Saturday evening, October 8th. The 410
sprinters will be joined by the thundercars who are still going after
precious points towards the crowning of the 2004 Lincoln Speedway Thundercar
track champion. Gates will open at 5 PM with time trials getting underway
at 7 PM.

BILLY DIETRICH DECLARED LINCOLN "358" CHAMP

This "Hanging Chad" was even more complicated than the aftermath of the 2000
Bush-Gore election.
A complex chain of events leading up to the start of last Saturday night's
358 sprint season finale at Lincoln Speedway left the outcome of the 2005
championship in doubt until a phone call from defending champ Chad Trout to
Lincoln promoters settled it once and for all.
Trout needed only to start the feature in Saturday's "358" championship
event to wrap up his second straight track title. Billy Dietrich needed to
win and hope that Trout didn't qualify to claim his first-ever Lincoln
crown.
Dietrich won.
Trout appeared to have made the show, but only after coming on to the track
as the fourth-alternate after being credited with an eighth-place finish in
the "B" Main.
Two starters for the feature, 10th-starting Travis Keeney and 14th-starting
Randy West couldn't make the call for the championship feature event,
opening the door for alternates.
First alternate Jay Galloway (who finished 5th in the B-Main) reported to
the track. But then second-alternate Troy Becker (who finished 6th in the
B-Main) failed to report.
In this very unusual situation, third-alternate Randy Whisler (who finished
7th in the B-Main) failed to report to the track. That appeared to open the
door for Trout who spun on the final lap of the B-Main and finished eighth,
leading to much speculation over how that could happen.
Lincoln starter Galen Koller inquired via radio with pit officials about the
situation as the cars were reporting to the track for the feature, but was
told that no one else was staged and ready to join the field.
To keep the show moving, officials lined up the cars and ran the race.
Although Trout broke no written rules in tagging the rear of the field for
the feature, he called Lincoln promoters on Monday and requested that the
points he may have gained in Saturday night's feature not be awarded.
Promoters Bob and Don Leiby and Alan Kreitzer on Tuesday honored his
request, deciding to pay Trout for his eighth-place finish in Saturday's
feature and award him only 100 "show-up" points for racing Saturday.
That was enough to keep him second in season points behind new Lincoln "358"
sprint champ Billy Dietrich.
The drivers who finished ninth through 23rd in Saturday's season finale will
all receive additional points to reflect an official finish one spot higher
than they were credited for finishing Saturday night.
Both drivers fighting for the coveted track championship fought through
adversity trying to make the show Saturday.
Dietrich flipped during warm-ups and received help from several racing teams
in making repairs to his Racers Used Parts Warehouse/Shellhamer's Hay &
Straw No.8D in time to run time-trials.
Trout suffered motor problems and missed time trials, forcing him to the
rear for his heat. He missed the transfer spot by one with a fifth-place
finish in his heat. Without taking time, he was put at the rear for the "C"
main, and missed the transfer to the "B" by one spot. But he was able to
join the rear of the "B" when "C" main winner Dale Hammaker was unable to
report out for that event.
Trout had advanced from last to fifth when he spun out on the final turn of
the "B."
Questions then arose when Trout pushed onto the track for the "A" main.
"Lincoln officials felt that it was at that point that we didn't handle
things exactly right," explained promoter Alan Kreitzer, "That led to a lot
of confusion, and changes will be made to make sure this doesn't happen
again."
One of the changes being considered is to have all drivers who aren't able
to run the feature report directly to Lincoln officials, who will personally
talk with the alternates in order.
Because no rules infractions occurred, the payoff delivered the drivers
after Saturday's feature will no be changed.
The final 2005 point standings for the "358" sprint division at Lincoln
Speedway will be posted on the Lincoln website within the next few days.

BILLY DIETRICH BESTS 47-CAR FIELD IN LINCOLN "358" SPRINT FINALE;
Frye dominates limited late models; Zechman, Zeigler, Jr. win thundercar features

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 9/10/05 - Billy Dietrich picked a perfect time for
his first win of the season at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.
The "358" sprint championship, the final event for the 358's at
Lincoln this year, paid $1,500 to the oldest of the Dietrich brothers, his
fourth career win in the in the Pigeon Hills.

Other than Dietrich's win, the final finishing order of Saturday's
race remains unofficial and the final season points standings will not be
determined until promoters review a protest filed at the end of the race and
review circumstances leading up to the protest.

Time trials and an eight-car inversion placed Dietrich outside the
front row for the start, and he led the first lap before sixth-starting and
rim-riding Alan Krimes raced around everyone into the race lead in the third
and fourth turns of lap two.
Krimes dominated the event and had a healthy lead over runner-up
Dietrich when he jumped the cushion and crashed on turn three of the
next-to-last lap. That put Dietrich into the lead for the
green-white-checkered finish. Eighth-starting Cory Haas squeezed under
Adrian Shaffer for second on the 24th-lap restart, but was unable to catch
Dietrich, who crossed 78-hundredths of-a-second in front of the Trone
Outdoor Advertising/Kane Hardwood Flooring Michael Barshinger #39. Shaffer
settled for third, with Brad McClelland fourth and Mike Lehman fifth.
358 Sprint heats were won by Locke, Chad Criswell, Scott Geesey and
Mike Lehman.
Dale Hammaker won the C-Main and Rusty Pressley won the B-Main.
Fast time in time trials over the 47-car field was set by Haas with
a one-lap time of 14.540 seconds (92.847 MPH).

Colby Frye's night didn't start very well when he got knocked to the
ground when he car fell off the blocks and dropped from the trailer while
unloading in the pits. But it sure ended well, with a dominating
performance in the 20-lap limited late model feature.
Frye started third, chased early-race leader Pat Beard for the first
two laps, then led the final 18 laps in picking up the win 91-hundredths
of-a-second in front of Gary Potts. Potts came from 13th-starting spot to
the runner-up finish, with Carl Graves third, Pat Beard fourth, and Potomac
regular Doug Cook fifth.
Sixteenth-starting Scott McCann, Derrike Zirkle, 17th-starting Tom
Blackwell, Carl Billet, and Josh Kimmel completed the top ten.
Heats for the 30 limited Late Models on hand were won by Mike
Spangler, Carl Graves and Bud Barton, with Chuck Yingling winning the
consolation.

Mike Zeigler, Jr. completed his comeback from an early-season injury
to score his first win of the year in the 20-lap regularly-scheduled
thundercar feature. Zeigler started on the pole and led all 20 laps,
despite heavy pressure from his dad over the second half of the race.
Zeigler, Sr. started ninth and moved past Larry Neiderer for the runner-up
spot on lap eight, and gave the younger Zeigler all his could handle as the
laps wound down. Junior hung on for a .47-second win for his 13th career
win at Lincoln, moving him into a tie with Ron Shultz for 10th on the
all-time win list.
Neiderer and Danny Beard both completed career-best Lincoln runs
with third and fourth-place finishes. Sprint car driver Jeff Rohrbaugh, a
former thundercar regular, drove the Jerry Bingaman #21 home to a
fifth-place finish.
Earlier in the evening, Dan Zechman raced to his second career
Lincoln win in the make-up feature from July 16th. Mike Walls, Zeigler,
Sr., Sam Gallagher, and Duane Watson completed the top five.
Heats for the 33 Thundercars on hand were won by Ziegler, Jr.,
Neiderer, and David Prunkl, with Chaz Walls taking the consolation.

Next Saturday night, September 17th, Lincoln Speedway will be dark
while the 410 Sprinters race elsewhere in one of many big season-ending
races.
Then the following Saturday night, September 24th, Lincoln Speedway
will hold one of the most popular races of season with the 17th running of
the Hank Gentzler Memorial Manufacturers Appreciation Race for the 410
Sprinters. The Thundercars will round out the evening's racing action as the
stock-bodied racers continue to battle for the coveted track title in the
next-to-last event.
Racing action will begin at 7 PM, with gates opening at 5 PM.

RAHMER WRAPS UP 9TH LINCOLN TITLE WITH ABEL MEMORIAL WIN;
Joe Ilg completes return to 358's with Lincoln win; Bill Brown, Sr. bests Classic Cars


ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 9/3/05 - The legendary Steve Smith and Bobby Abel
have set the standards by which all have been measured at Lincoln Speedway
over it's storied 53-year history. And Fred Rahmer is on the verge of
becoming a part of that standard which all will be measured in the future.
Rahmer grabbed the lead from his outside frontrow starting position,
held off a furious challenge by Brian Montieth and Greg Hodnett, and raced
to his ninth win of 2005 in the 25-lap 11th Annual Bobby Abel Memorial in
the Pigeon Hills Saturday night.
The win, his sixth Abel Memorial win over its 11-year history, also
clinched his record-tying ninth Cindy Rowe Auto Glass Track Championship.
"When I started racing here he was the benchmark, and he still is,"
said Rahmer on all-time win leader Steve Smith. "He did it a little
different than we do now...he did it on his own. We just call up and order
parts."
And the nation's leading 2005 sprint car winner (now at 25) hinted
that he's not done yet.
"I still have some work left...I'd like to get to that 151 mark if I
could do it," said Rahmer. "The 10 win mark at Lincoln is another goal this
season I'd be proud to do it...we'll just see what happens."
"We come. We do the best we can. Some nights it's good enough, and
some night's it's not."
"It's unbelievable to win a race in his honor," said Rahmer on
winning his sixth Abel Memorial race. "Any race you win here is special."
Rahmer started on the front row beside polesitter Becca Anderson and
led every lap. But ongoing pressure from fourth-starting Brian Montieth and
sixth-starting Greg Hodnett during the middle stages of the race had the
huge crowd on its feet. Montieth closed on Rahmer when the No.88H caught
lapped traffic on lap 13. Four laps later, Montieth pulled alongside Rahmer
exiting turn four. The two were running so close that only the electronic
scoring confirmed that Rahmer led every lap.
"There at the beginning in two laps we were into lapped car," said
Rahmer. "I would have rather started third and figured out where the track
was."
"Brian (Montieth) runs the top so good and as long as I seen his
number up on the scoreboard I didn't have to worry about the bottom too much
because his car works so good on the top."
"You can only run as hard as you have to as the leader. All you can
do is mess up. We just got lucky."
Hodnett closed on the leaders and made it a three-car battle through
lapped traffic until Hodnett jumped the cushion and looped the Manheim Auto
Auction No.77 in turn four of lap 19. Lance Dewease assumed third for the
restart, with 20th-starting Lucas Wolfe right behind. Despite a 24th-lap red
flag for Jeff Busby, who got tangled in the guide wires in the turn four
catch fence, none of the challengers were able to advance position over the
final six laps.
Rahmer took the checkered .88-seconds ahead of Montieth for his
ninth win of the year and 143rd career win in the Pigeon Hills, a victory
worth $3,500.
Dewease and Wolfe crossed third and fourth, with Doug Esh fifth.
Completing the top ten were Josh Wells, Niki Young, Chad Layton, Eric
Stambaugh, and Brian Leppo.
"It's quite an honor," said the newly crowned 2005 Cindy Rowe Auto
Glass 410 Sprint Champion. "We have such a good group of cars here...Brian
(Montieth) was excellent tonight, he runs the curb better than I do."
"We were able to get a good draw for the feature and it paid off."
"We definitely has the best Saturday night racing around here...it's
such a good group of cars," continued Rahmer. "We came up on them lapped
cars and I was starting to slow down and them guys got to me."
"Timmy and the guys had the car good. Don Ott Engines again are
always flawless. I want to thank everybody at Miller Brothers, it was their
motor in tonight. I'll tell ya, everybody involved in this team is such a
good group of people, Joe and Peggy (Harz), and my wife for putting up with
all of this."
Heats for the 26 "410" sprints on hand were won by Jason Johnson,
Young and Hodnett, with Chris Meleason winning the consolation. Johnson
appeared to be one of the fastest cars in the field, but got caught up in a
five-car tangle in the fourth turn of lap three. Anderson, Lonnie Ryan, and
Jim Siegel were all done for the night, with Brian Leppo tagging the rear
and coming back to finish tenth.

Joe Ilg marked a successful return to 358 sprint racing by winning
on his fourth night out in the 20-lap "358" sprint feature. Ilg started on
the pole and dominated the event, while brothers Dietrich came through the
field to finish second (Billy) and third (Danny). Billy's second-place
finish coupled with point leader Chad Trout's sixth-place finish ensured
that the 358 point championship will go down to next week's season finale.
Ilg's final margin of victory in his third career Lincoln win was
1.14 seconds.
Trout's run to the sixth came from 22nd starting spot after he
crashed in his heat and qualified through one of the two consolation events.
Trail-Way/Lincoln "358 Sprint Shoot-out" winner Brad McClelland
crossed fourth, with Cory Haas fifth.
Seventh through tenth behind Trout were Troy Becker, Mike Lehman, Jeff
Young, and Scott Geesey.
McClelland claimed the $250 "Shoot-Out" bonus by having the best
two-night combined finish between Trail-Way last Friday night (2nd) and his
fourth-place finish at Lincoln.
Heats for the 37 "358" sprints on hand were won by Joe Ilg, Troy
Becker, Billy Dietrich and Jeff Young. Twin consolations were won by Cory
Haas and Bobby Howard.

Bill Brown, Sr. reclaimed the points lead with his wire-to-wire win
in the 15-lap Classic Car Club feature event. He crossed .94-seconds ahead
of son-in-law Kurt Welsh, with Daryl Winkler, Jim Crocker, and Joe Brown
rounding out the top five. It ended a perfect night for Brown, who
established a six-lap track record of 2:07.67 in his heat.
Classic Car heats were won by Brown Sr. and Fred Cullum.

Next Saturday night, September 10th, the 358 Sprinters will be in
the spotlight at Lincoln Speedway as the 410 Sprinters will have the night
off to race elsewhere. The 358 Sprinters will conclude their season-long
points race in a special Championship event. In addition, the thundercars
will have a big night, as they compete in two features - the regularly
scheduled program and the July 16th rained-out make-up feature.
Rounding out the program will be the Limited Late Models, which will
run under Silver Spring rules.
Racing action will shift to 7 PM starts for the remainder of the
season with gates opening at 5 PM and time trials for the 358 Sprints
beginning at 7 PM.

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 8/26/05 - Mother nature reared her ugly head for
the fifth time Saturday night in the form of a steady shower that forced
Lincoln Speedway promoters to cancel the evening's racing action. Rain
showers slowly came into the Pigeon Hills area just as the track was being

to linger into the evening. After and hour-and-a half of waiting, track
officials were forced to throw in the towel at 8:30 p.m.

rescheduled for Saturday September 10th.
The Trail-Way Speedway/Lincoln Speedway 358 Sprint "Shoot-Out"

JIM SIEGEL TOPS WELDON STERNER MEMORIAL
Curt Michael runs away with URC sprint win and Neil Smith wins first in the
thundercars


ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 6/18/05 - Two weeks ago, Jim Siegel wired the
sprint car field at Lincoln Speedway to capture his second career feature
win. Last week, the New Oxford racer failed to qualify for the Haulmark All
Star event in the Pigeon Hills.
Saturday night, Siegel returned to his winning ways leading all but
one lap of the 33-lap Weldon Sterner Memorial and left with his biggest
career win. His third career win was worth $6,900 to the Scarpitta
Racing/Bob Folk-owned No. 59 team.
"We were really frustrated with our performance last week and we
really wanted to come back and put on a good show after we had the win but
we ran short," said the 26-year-old second generation racer. "I really
wanted to come back tonight and win this race because there was a lot of
extra money put up by the sponsors of the Weldon Sterner race and it will
look good in my bank account."
Like he did in his first 2005 win, Siegel took full advantage of his
front row starting position. It proved to be the difference on a dry slick
racing surface Saturday night.
After Sam Schlosberg led lap one, Siegel moved the C.H. Folk and
Sons Feed, McCarthy's Marine Sales, Promotion Graphics J & J Chassis to the
front on the second lap. His move would end up being the race-winning move.
Siegel led through the ninth lap when Doug Esh brought out a
caution with a flat tire.
Schlosberg held off Eric Stambaugh for the runner-up spot as Siegel
raced away out front.
Brian Leppo, driving an Apple Motorsports No. 69 sprinter painted
like the old Sterner Cement cars spun on the 19th lap to close the field
again.
Schlosberg showed his nose on the restart but Siegel managed to pull
away.
Greg Hodnett and Chad Layton put on a great battle for the fifth
spot over laps 21 through 26 with Hodnett finally gaining the spot.
Stambaugh's great run ended on lap 29 when his left rear tire blew.
Schlosberg and Siegel crossed side by side on the 30th lap when the
race was stopped one final time on the 31st circuit when Jeff Busby flipped
in the fourth turn. He was not injured.
Schlosberg raced Siegel hard over the final two circuits but Siegel
crossed under the checkered flag by a car length over the Greenlane racer.
"Sam's a helluva good driver and he wanted this one as bad as I
did," said the winner. "I thought I was okay but on those restarts, he
showed himself on the bottom and I thought man, he's pretty quick. I just
really tried to concentrate and slow myself down and try to hold him off."
Siegel is looking forward to the challenge of starting back a little
further next time.
"We started from the front row again and that helps get the
confidence up with the wins but in order to be real good, we need to be able
to race our way through the field," Siegel stated. "We've cut down to one
night a week this year because the money really isn't there and I think that
hurts our program."
Schlosberg finished second and took home $2,900 with Hodnett
crossing in third after starting 10th. Jason Johnson was fourth with Layton
finishing fifth.
Defending champion Fred Rahmer was sixth over Niki Young, Josh
Wells, Chris Knopp and Stevie Smith. Wells earned an extra $500 bonus from
Van May for the Hard Charger award. He started 18th.
Heats for the 20 "410" sprinters were won by Eric Stambaugh and
Brian Montieth.
Former Lincoln 410 sprint regular Curt Michael returned to Lincoln's
victory lane for the first time since the 1999 season after he destroyed the
field to win the 25-lap United Racing Club feature.
Michael, who retook the URC points lead started eighth wasted little
time in driving the Pat and Kathy Palladino-owned BK Leasing sprinter to the
front. Michael took the lead from Chris Coyle on the sixth lap and ran away
from the field aboard a brand new J & J chassis just put together this week.
The win was the second of the season for Michael and his 25th career URC win.
Michael's margin of victory came by a straightaway over Coyle, Jason
Clauss, Josh Weller and Kramer Williamson.
Bill Brian, Jr. Finished sixth over Dave Ely, Chad Trout, Dave
McGough and Mark Bittner.
Heats for the 25 URC Sprinters were won by Chris Coyle, Josh Weller
and Jon Eldreth.
Neil Smith captured his first win of the year in the caution-filled
20-lap thundercar feature.
Smith started ninth in the field and moved to the front in a hurry
taking the lead from Duane Hahn on lap five and then holding off 23rd
starting Mike Zeigler, Sr. over the final laps for his 35th career Lincoln
win.
Zeigler moved into contention on lap 10 when he entered the top five
and then took the runner-up spot with 12 laps complete. Despite a few yellow
flags, Smith came home the winner over Zeigler, Nat Tuckey, Craig Wagaman
and Ron Shultz.
Howard Williams, Larry Neiderer, Danny Beard, Bob Stough and Jason
Watson completed the top 10.
Heats for the 29 thundercars on hand were won by Mike Slaybaugh,
Mike Walls and Dan Zechman, with Larry Neiderer winning the consolation.
Next Saturday night, June 25th, Lincoln Speedway kicks off the
Annual Pennsylvania Speedweek Series with the 6th running of the Kevin
Gobrecht Memorial. The thundercars will round out the evening's racing
action with time trials getting underway at 7:30 PM. Gates will open at 5:30 PM.

HODNETT, POSSE DOMINATE LINCOLN ALL-STAR "A MAIN";
Walls loses it on final turn, Gallagher claims win in thundercars


    ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 6/11/05 - Greg Hodnett picked a good time to claim
his first 2005 Lincoln win, as he and the rest of the Pennsylvania Posse put
away the invaders in Saturday's All-Star Circuit of Champions 30-lap
$5,000-to-win "A Main."
    Time trials place Hodnett third for the start.  He followed front
row starters Eric Stambaugh and polesitter Dale Blaney for the first three
laps before a caution flag flew for Jason Johnson and Josh Wells on turn
four.  He got around Blaney for second on turns three and four of the
restart, and then, after two more cautions, pulled the slider in turns three
and four to grab the lead from Stambaugh on lap eight.
    From there, he dominated while the rest of the Posse climbed through
the field.
    Points leader Fred Rahmer started 13th and passed both Blaney and
Brian Leppo to advance to fourth on lap nine.  By then, fourth-starting
Lance Dewease was in a heated wheel-to-wheel battle with Stambaugh for the
runner-up spot.  Those two raced side-by-side through lapped traffic the
rest of the way, with the Swope's Salvage and Recycling #4 holding on for
second, Dewease crossing third, Rahmer finishing fourth, and ninth-starting
Doug Esh completing the top five.  Sixth and seventh were Brian Leppo and
Alan Krimes, followed by All-Stars Dale Blaney, Greg Wilson, and Kenny
Jacobs.
    Hodnett's final margin of victory was 2.65 seconds.  It was his
fifth overall win of 2005, the 11th of his career in the Pigeon Hills, his
11th career All-Star win, and his first Lincoln All-Star win.
    "We picked a good one (to win)," said Hodnett in victory lane, "We
had a great starting spot and the guys did a great job on tire choices.
This was a great field of cars.  They're the best in the world locally, and
then you add to it the All-Stars, a great bunch of guys...they all run hard
and I'm proud to be standing up here, let me tell you."
    "We've been trying to chase Eric (Stambaugh) and Fred (Rahmer), and
everybody else here.  Maybe we're catching up to them," reflected Hodnett,
adding that of the many famous car owners represented on this night,
including Bob Hampshire and Jack Elden, "Al (Hamilton) probably has more
wins than all of them combined.  I'm proud to bring the Hamiltons a win here
at Lincoln tonight, and hopefully, many more."
    Hamilton added levity to the moment when he quipped, "I haven't won
for so long that I can't believe the two Matts and Greg are still with me!
As old and mean as I am, whining and growling at them, I can't even believe
they're still working for me.  What do they want with me?  But a 'good
loser' is going to be a loser.  I'm sorry, but I'm not a good loser."
    Then the prediction.
    "We'll probably win a few more yet."
    The Crown Battery heat fell to Rahmer, the B&B Oval Products heat
went to Paul May, the Engler Machine and Tool heat was won by All-Star
points leader Chad Kemenah, and the TP Wings heat fell to Erin Crocker. Alan
Krimes won the University of Northwestern Ohio B Main. Brock Mays captured
the Haulmark Dash and Danny Smith was the Huggins Cams Fast Time qualifier
over the 34-car field with a one-lap time of 13.565 seconds (99.521 MPH).
    Hanover's Sam Gallagher picked up his second career thundercar win
in thrilling fashion by taking advantage of Mike Walls one mistake in the
last turn to the checkered. Gallagher trailed three-time 2005 Lincoln winner
Walls over the second half of the 20-lap feature and appeared to be settling
for a second place finish as they headed through the final turns to the
checkered. But Walls got out of shape high on the fourth turn cushion,
sliding out of control exiting the turn, allowing Gallagher to slip by for
the dramatic win.
    Outside frontrow starter Mike Slaybaugh grabbed the lead at the
outset of the 20 lap feature and was looking to make it two wins in-a-row
after picking up his first career thundercar win the week before. But
fourth-starting Gallagher and 12th-starting Walls slipped by on the eighth
lap with Gallagher being credited with leading the eighth lap. But Walls
wrestled the lead away from Gallagher on the ninth lap, setting up the
eventual dramatic last-lap last-turn run to the checkered.
    12th-starting Duane Watson slipped by as well on the final stretch
to the checkered to finish second with Walls recovering to finish third.
Craig Wagaman and Dan Zechman finished fourth and fifth respectively.
    Completing the top-10 were Nat Tuckey, Ron Shultz, Mike Zeigler Sr.,
Tom Walls Jr., Mike Slaybaugh.
    Heats for the 28 thundercars on hand were won by Greg Emlet Jr., Dan
Zechman and Mike Walls, with Jim Martz Jr. winning the consolation.
    Next Saturday night, June 18th, Lincoln Speedway will run the 2nd
Annual Weldon Sterner Memorial for the 410 Sprints. The event marks the
biggest payday of the year at the Pigeon Hills oval with the winner earning
$6,900. Joining them will be the invading United Racing Club sprinters and
the highly competitive thundercars. It will also mark the second appearance
of Kids Big Wheel races. Gates will open at 5:30 PM, with qualifying getting
underway at 7:30 PM.

SIEGEL BLOWS AWAY TALENT-LADEN FIELD IN LINCOLN 410'S;
Stone dominates limited late models; Slaybaugh claims emotional career first
in thundercars


ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 6/4/05 - "Man it was fast tonight."
Truer words were never spoken. The track was fast, but so was the
410 sprinter of second generation driver Jim Siegel, who broke a slump of
more than a year in claiming his second career win in the 25-lap SUSCOM
Night feature Saturday night at Lincoln Speedway.
Siegel, who had not finished in the top five in ten Lincoln races
this year, was dominant. He gained nearly a second-a-lap over the rest of
the field after each restart of the caution-filled event. He grabbed the
lead from his front-row starting spot over polesitter Chris Knopp and was
more than three seconds ahead of Niki Young when Young jumped the cushion
and rolled over in turn three of lap six.
His lead was more than four seconds when the second caution came out
for Danny Murray on lap 11.
Additional cautions wiped out leads of more than three seconds on lap 15, a
second on lap 16, a second on lap 17, two seconds on lap 19, and nearly
three seconds on lap 23.
"It's easy starting from the front row...you're supposed to do
that," said a happy Siegel in victory lane, "We've been struggling it seems
like ever since we got the first (win) last year...we started off okay this
year but have been struggling. We put this new car together...we knew it was
going to be a fast car. We were just trying to feel it out and get a good
balance with it."
An opening-lap melee on turn two involved nine cars, but Siegel was
already down the backstretch. It seemed like a caution flag flew every time
Siegel closed in on lapped traffic.
"It was a double-edge sword," said Siegel on the numerous cautions,
"The lapped traffic was excellent tonight, they were doing a good job
keeping their heads and staying out of the way...but you keep getting those
yellows and you just keep thinking and you hear every little noise. I just
kept thinking we had to get a fuel stop because this thing was going to run
out of fuel."
Siegel's win came over a star-studded field that saw several big
names in the top ten throughout the race.
"I kept looked up at the leader board," said Siegel. "Chris (Knopp)
has been good, Stambaugh's been on a roll here, and then I saw Lance
(Dewease) get up to third and you know he's hungry and you're just waiting
for the 88 (Rahmer) to come on...I just wanted to get this over with."
Siegel pulled away on each restart, crossing 1.64 seconds ahead of
Knopp, who finished second for a second straight week. Dewease advanced
from 12th starting spot to finish third, with Stambaugh fourth and Greg
Hodnett catching points leader Fred Rahmer for fifth on the backstretch of
the final lap. Sixth through tenth were Rahmer, Brian Leppo (who came from
the back after the first-lap crash), Doug Esh (also coming from the back
after the lap one crash), Sam Schlosberg, and Bobby Weaver (who came from
the rear after suffering a flat tire).
"We're a low budget team. Bob Folk from C.H. Folk & Sons Feeds gives
us real good stuff ," Siegel added. "My folks give me everything they
got...Don Ott Engines are the fastest engines around, everybody knows
that...McCarthy's Marine Sales, Hoosier Tires...we got hooked on these VRP
Shocks this year and it helped us and made a heck of a difference on this
car and made us fast."
Heats for the 26 "410" sprinters were won by Schlosberg, Rahmer and
Siegel, with Dan Shetler winning the consolation.
Thompson's Dan Stone came to Lincoln to get some track time for the
August 13th World of Outlaw Late Model show, and dominated a huge field of
cars which turned out for the limited late model portion of the program.
Stone started third and led every lap of the 20-lap event, crossing 3.91
seconds ahead of runner-up Carl Billet, who came from 11th starting spot.
Third through fifth were Bryan Bernheisel, defending thundercar champ Mike
Zeigler Sr. and Mike Spangler.
Heats for the 36 limited late models were won by Pat Beard, Jake
Jones, Spangler and Stone. Stone won the fourth heat in a new 8-lap track
record time of two minutes 20.33 seconds, breaking the old record of two
minutes 21.15 seconds set by Jeff Leiphart on June 10, 2000.
Twin consolations were won by Zeigler and Dave Sokoloski.
Second-generation thundercar racer Mike Slaybaugh picked up his
first career win in there 20-lap feature. His father, Kenny Slaybaugh was
the 1964 late model track champ and was racing up until last season at 69
years of age, was on hand to see his son's emotional first career win.
Slaybaugh, grabbed the lead from his outside frontrow starting spot
over polesitter Greg Emlet Jr. at the drop of the green and led all 20 laps
en route to the win.
But it wasn't easy as third-starting Duane Hahn stayed glued to his
bumper the entire distance. He was followed just as closely by defending
track champ Mike Zeigler Sr., current point leader Ron Shultz, and Nat
Tuckey over the final 10 laps as they cruised the highside of the track the
entire way waiting for Slaybaugh to falter.
But Slaybaugh was up to the task and took the checkered .74-seconds
ahead of Hahn to become the 70th different driver to ever win a thundercar
feature at Lincoln Speedway. Zeigler Sr. finished third, Ron Shultz fourth
and Nat Tuckey fifth. Completing the top-10 were Sam Gallagher, Duane
Watson, Neil Smith, Howard Williams and Tom Slusser Jr..
Heats for the 25 thundercars were won by Craig Wagaman, Emlet and
Zeigler Sr., with Jake Markey winning the consolation.
Next Saturday night, June 11th, the Pennsylvania Posse takes on the
traveling All-Star Circuit of Champions. Joining the Cindy Rowe Auto Glass
410 Sprinters will be the thundercar regulars. Gates will open at 5:30 PM,
with time trials getting underway at 7:30 PM.

FIRST CAREER LINCOLN WINS FOR LEPPO IN 410'S AND LAYTON IN 358'S;
Duane Hahn scores first of year and second of Lincoln career in thundercar feature


ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 5/14/05 - "It's definitely the best feeling ever!"
What more could Spring Grove's Brian Leppo say after he earned his
first career Lincoln Speedway win in the 25-lap 410 sprint feature Saturday
night.
Leppo grabbed the lead from Chris Knopp on the fifth lap and then
survived two critical caution restarts with Doug Esh hot on his tail to
become the 174th different feature winner in the history of Lincoln
Speedway.
"It definitely doesn't get any better than this," said an outwardly
happy Leppo in victory lane, "We've been trying forever to win here...it
feels awesome, this is what it is all about."
"Dave (Yingst) and the crew gave us a heck of a good car. We've been
struggling. Rahmer said I just needed some confidence, and hopefully this
will change things."
Three red flags marred the first nine laps of the feature, with the
first on the opening lap involving polesitter Chris Meleason, who spun and
collected Jeff Shepard, Todd Zinn, Eric Stambaugh, Brian Montieth, and a
flipping Jeff Busby. That allowed Leppo to advance from his original eighth
starting spot to fifth for the complete race restart.
Glenndon Forsythe, who assumed the pole for the restart, grabbed the
lead on the complete restart with new fellow frontrow starter Chris Knopp in
tow. Knopp passed Forsythe on the third lap for the lead, with Leppo
following suit to move into second on the same lap.
Leppo then powered around Knopp in the third and fourth turns of lap
five to take the lead.
The second red flag waved on the sixth lap, when Sam Schlosberg and
Greg Hodnett got together in the fourth turn with Hodnett flipping his
mount. That gave 10th-starting Esh the opportunity to pass Knopp on the
restart for second place and set his sights on the leader.
The third red flag then waved on the 10th lap when Jim Siegel
flipped in the first and second turns.
"The restart before that I left him get a slider on me because I
didn't hit it hard enough," said Leppo on Esh's attempt to take the lead,
"So I just drove in there a ton harder the next time...I figured he was
going to have to give it his all to get by us."
The final 16 laps went non-stop, with Leppo crossing 1.04 seconds
ahead of Esh.
Points leader Fred Rahmer, who started 20th after hitting the first
turn wall and being towed from the scene in his heat, advanced through the
field to finish third, with Niki Young fourth and Josh Wells fifth.
Completing the top ten were Jason Johnson, Glenndon Forsythe, Bobby Weaver,
Eric Stambaugh, and Lance Dewease (who started last in the feature after
making the tow from the rained-out Port Royal Speedway).
Heats for the 21 "410" sprinters were won by Knopp and Forsythe.
The evening's racing program was delayed for over two hours for two
rain showers which swept through the Central Pennsylvania.
Chad Layton, Central Pennsylvania's all-time winningest "358" sprint
car driver, matched Leppo's feat by claiming his first career Lincoln win in
the 25-lap, $1,500-to-win Trone Outdoor Advertising/York Flooring Mid-Season
Championship.
Layton, who started fifth, grabbed the lead from Stewart Smith
coming down the front stretch to complete lap four. Two turns later, Smith
spun and brought out the caution, handing second over to Friday night
Trail-Way winner Mike Bittinger. Bittinger ran second for the next ten laps
before yielding to Chad Trout, who spent the next nine laps trying to track
down Layton in heavy lapped traffic before hitting the wall and bringing out
the caution on lap 24.
At the time, Brad McClelland, Steve Clabaugh, and Bittinger were
battling for third. McClelland assumed second for the restart, but had to
deal with four lapped cars between the B&D Truck Hoist/ Hartlaub and Son
Used Auto Parts #6 and leader Layton.
Layton's final margin of victory was 1.54 seconds, with McClelland,
Clabaugh, and Bittinger finishing second through fourth and Mike Carber
completing the top five. Sixth through tenth Howie Locke, Travis Keeney,
Brian Earnst, Cory Haas, and Jan Opperman, Jr.
Heats for the 34 "358" sprinters were won by Billy Dietrich, Layton
and Trout, with Todd Rittenhouse Jr. winning the consolation.
Abbottstown's Duane Hahn picked up his second career Lincoln
Speedway thundercar win in there 20-lap feature. Hahn, who started fourth,
raced in outside frontrow starter and race-long leader Howard Williams's
shadow over the race's first 14 lap. A patient Hahn finally got his
opportunity on the 15th lap when Williams slipped up into the outside
guardrail exiting the second turn, allowing him to slip by in the third and
fourth turns. From there Hahn drove flawlessly over the final five laps to
register the win and became the fifth different winner in seven races at the
Pigeon Hills oval in 2005 thundercar action.
Mike Walls came on strong in the closing laps to finish second, with
Williams settling for third, Craig Wagaman fourth and Duane Watson fifth.
Completing the top-10 were Ron Shultz, Neil Smith, Nat Tuckey, Dan Zechman
and Mike Slaybaugh.
Heats for the 21 thundercars were won by Mike Zeigler Jr. and
Williams.
Next Saturday night, May 21st, for the third week in-a-row, all
three point divisions will be in action at the high-banked lightning-quick
3/8th mile oval - the Cindy Rowe Auto Glass 410 Sprints, the 358 Sprints
and Thundercars.
Gates will open at 5:30 PM, with racing action getting underway at
7:30 PM.

It was to be the season-opener for the ARDC Midgets, which is now scheduled for this Saturday, April 30th.

Rain-checks will now be honored for the next three weeks.

Next Saturday, April 30th, the 305 Sprinters will be back for there second visit of 2005, being joined by the Cindy Rowe Auto Glass 410 Sprint and Thundercar regulars, as well as the rescheduled ARDC opener. Gates will open at 5 PM, with racing action getting underway at 7 PM.


SHEPARD BLOWS AWAY THE FIELD IN LINCOLN 410 SPRINT MAIN;
Lehman “358" sprint winner; Wagaman wins second of weekend in thundercar thriller


ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 4/16/05 - He’s back...

Jeff “The Jet” Shepard broke into victory lane in a big way Saturday night, as he demolished the 410 sprint field to pick up his first 2005 Central Pennsylvania win in the 25-lap feature at Lincoln Speedway.

Shepard grabbed the lead from polesitter Pat Cooper with a slider in the third and fourth turns of the fourth lap, then drove away to a three-quarter lap lead before a red flag prolonged the inevitable outcome on the final turn to the checkered. Shepard still scored an impressive 2.68-second win over last week’s feature winner Doug Esh for his seventh career win at the Pigeon Hill’s oval.

“I’ll be back!” declared Shepard boldly in victory lane, “I don’t want to run second. I don’t want to run third. I’m tired of running in the back. I want to come up here, win, and be the new ‘Fred Rahmer’ in Central Pennsylvania.”

“Two weeks ago we didn’t even make the race at Williams Grove Speedway, that’s how bad it was,” Shepard revealed, “We had a meeting and we knew we couldn’t do anything but get better. They (Lee Stauffer and crew) work on this thing every day, and this is where it pays off. And they’re going to keep working, because I want to be here every week.”

Shepard slid up one row to start third and Chris Meleason was unable to report out for the feature. He spotted the lead to Pat Cooper for the first three laps. After making the winning pass, Shepard pulled away to a seven and-a-half second lead by the time a red flag flew on the final lap for the cars of Josh Wells and Jason Johnson, who got together while racing for second on turn two. Shepard was within sight of the checkered when the red came out.

Three lapped cars lined up behind Shepard for the restart prevented Doug Esh from making a challenge over the final lap. Greg Hodnett crossed third, with Niki Young fourth and Chad Layton fifth. The other cars still running on the lead lap at the end were Bobby Weaver, Brian Montieth, Brian Leppo, and Eric Stambaugh. Johnson was credited with tenth despite his crash.

Points leader Fred Rahmer was uninjured in a 16th lap flip on turn two. He was running fifth and trying to hold off Greg Hodnett at the time.
The win was Shepard’s second of the year (first was a World of Outlaw win in Florida in February), and Shepard became the third different winner in five Lincoln races in 2005.

“I used to run here years ago...but the tracks have changed, the tires have changed, everything’s changed,” explained Shepard, “These guys that run here on a week-to-week basis, they’re tougher than going out on the road and racing.”

“I’m on the hot seat, because this car wins all the time..they won 90-some races with Greg (Hodnett) and we’re only up to two,” said Shepard. “So I’ve got a lot more to do.”
“Lee (Stauffer) and I are getting along great, contrary to everybody’s belief. I think they didn’t want us to get along,” Shepard was quick to add, “He’s got a lot of experience, I got a lot of experience, the team, the sponsor, everybody included...it’s just really good.”

Heats for the 23 “410" sprinters were won by Shepard, Esh and Wells.

Manheim’s Mike Lehman moved back into a first-place tie with Chad Layton on the all-time Central Pennsylvania win list by finishing one spot in front of Layton in the crash-marred 20-lap “358" sprint feature. It was Lehman’s ninth career “358" win at Lincoln, moving him into a fourth-place tie with Greg Leiby just two behind Doug Esh.
Lehman started 11th and avoided a six-car melee on the backstretch that took out the flipping cars of Billy Dietrich and Dale Hammaker, as well as the 358's of Jon Keller and John Barnett. Two packs of three cars each crashed after Barnett caught the outside guardrail on the backstretch.

Lehman, who was not in the top eight when the crash occurred, assumed fourth for the restart. He worked his way past Alan Krimes on lap six, assumed second when Travis Keeney flipped while running second on turns one and two of lap seven, and took the lead from Cory Haas on the restart. He led the rest of the way, with Layton moving into second and chasing him over the final eight laps. Haas settled for third, with Krimes fourth and Brad McClelland advancing from his 17th starting spot to finish fifth. Completing the top ten were Chad Trout, Howie Locke, Danny Dietrich, Rusty Pressley (who came back from a flip in his heat), and Chad Criswell.

Heats for the 39 “358" sprinters were won by Jan Opperman Jr., Haas, Billy Dietrich and Trout. Twin consolations were won by McClelland and Todd Rittenhouse Jr..

Gettysburg’s Craig Wagaman finally got back to one that got away a few weeks ago in dramatic fashion by passing Neil Smith in the final turns to the checkered to pick up his first win of the year in the 20-lap thundercar feature. Wagaman, who lost in similar fashion to two-time winner Mike Walls, trailed race-leader Neil Smith and Mike Zeigler Sr. in the final stages of the feature with Mike Zeigler Jr. behind. Smith and Zeigler Sr. Drove the bottom groove while Wagaman and Zeigler Jr. rode the high line lap-after-lap.

Wagaman finally got the bite he needed and pulled along side of Smith on the final turns and out-raced Smith to the checkered to earn his 20th career Lincoln win.
Defending thundercar champ Zeigler Sr. had to settle for third, with his son Zeigler Jr. fourth and Ron Shultz fifth. Rounding out the top-10 were Sam Gallagher, Nat Tuckey, Jim Rost, Doug Devilbiss and Al Cramer.

Heats for the 27 thundercars were won by Doug Devilbiss, Wagaman and Duane Watson.

Next Saturday, April 23rd, the Cindy Rowe Auto Glass 410 Sprints and Thundercars will be joined by the mighty ARDC Midgets. It will be the season opener for the ARDC midgets, featuring Twin 20-Lap Features, no qualifying, with one feature with wings and the other without wings. To celebrate ARDC’s season opener, Ed Stimely Jr. in the Yetter Racing No.6 and Scott Zipp in the Zipp Racing No.99 are expected to be on display on the front stretch for the fans to see, as well as get autographs from Stimely and Zipp. Gates will open at 5 PM, with racing action getting underway at 7 PM.

DOUG ESH ENDS OWN WINLESS STREAK & RAHMER'S WIN STREAK AT LINCOLN;
Haas wins "358" sprint feature; Walls claims second straight in thundercars


ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 4/9/05 - The streak is over, and Doug Esh is the
most popular driver in town. At least for one night.
The Lancaster speedster passed race-long leader Niki Young with a
slider in the third and fourth runs of the eighth lap to take the lead, then
held off a rim-riding Brian Montieth and a determined Fred Rahmer over the
final laps to score his first win in almost a year in the 25-lap 410 sprint
feature at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night. In the process, he ended
Rahmer's three-race Lincoln winning streak.
"I saw him coming up on the scoreboard," said Esh after performing
his famous top 'wing dance' in victory lane. "I'll tell you what, the guy
just doesn't go away."
"I wasn't going to give it to him easy and he came from the back so
I knew he had to be pretty good," said Esh of Rahmer. "I'll end it (the
streak) for him...you know me and him have this little argument over shocks,
and we worked this week pretty hard with Penske and got our shocks pretty
good. Maybe we got the right color on tonight."
Sixth-starting Niki Young blasted into the lead coming out of the
fourth turn to complete the first lap, with fourth-starting Chris Meleason
and eighth-starting Esh in tow.
"He (Young) got away from us there on the start," said Esh. "But I
got the car adjusted around a little bit to where I liked it."
Young led the first seven laps before Esh drove under him in lapped
traffic exiting turn four of lap eight. While Esh paced the field, the
racing from second on back was torrid. Josh Wells passed Young for third on
lap 14. At the time, Esh held a 1.03-second lead. Wells ran second until
Brian Montieth took his car to the wall to drive around him exiting turn
four of lap 23. Rahmer, who started 17th after crossing sixth in his heat,
drove through a two-car crash involving Aaron Long and Jason Johnson on lap
two as he methodically worked his way to the leader board (third) by lap 20.
Rahmer was the other car Montieth drove around on lap 23, but the Miller
Brothers No.88H was able to get by Wells for third on the next-to-last lap.
Finishing fifth behind Esh, Montieth, Rahmer, and Wells was Greg
Hodnett. Sixth through tenth were Jeff Shepard, Young, 20th-starting Eric
Stambaugh, Brian Leppo, and Sam Schlosberg.
"It doesn't show by our t-shirt sales," joked Esh about all his fans
that crowded into victory lane. "I think we have a couple fans...I think
they're just more happy we beat Fred Rahmer."
" I don't know if they're really my fans. 'Anybody but Rahmer' seem
to be my fans tonight!"
"Dennis (Kohler), who used to work with Mark Kinser, has really
turned our program around," Esh added. "Now that we got this first win
behind us, hopefully there is many more to come."
Chris Meleason was uninjured in a hard flip in turn one of lap 20.
The lap two crash between Long and Johnson resulted in a red flag after Long
smashed into the inside guardrail exiting the second turn. He also walked
away.
Heats for the 25 "410" sprinters were won by Meleason, Esh and
Shepard.

Two-time Lincoln champ Cory Haas pulled to within one win of Doug
Esh at the top of the all-time Lincoln win list by claiming his tenth career
checkered in the 20-lap "358" sprint feature. After failing to make the
show on opening night for the 358's, Lincoln handicapping placed Haas on the
pole for the start. He grabbed the lead at the drop of the green over
fellow front-row starter John Barnett.
But Barnett spun in turn one and collected four other cars, placing
Jim Layton on the front row for the restart. Haas again took the lead, and
crossed first laps one through ten. But on an 11th-lap restart, Haas drove
into the loose stuff on turn four and lost the lead to fifth-starting Billy
Dietrich. Dietrich then led two laps before Haas reclaimed the lead on the
same spot in turn four on a 13th-lap restart. He led the rest of the way,
with Dietrich settling for second, Mike Lehman coming from tenth to finish
third, Jim Layton fourth, and Brad McClelland came from 16th to finish
fifth. Completing the top-10 were Mike Carber, Chad Trout, Chad Criswell,
Adam Wilt and Mike Bittinger.
Haas' win was a fitting birthday present for car owner Mike
Barshinger, who turned 50 earlier in the week.
Heats for the 37 "358" sprinters were won by Layton, Haas, Todd
Rittenhouse, Jr. and Danny Dietrich. Twin consolations were won by Keith
Prutzman and Jon Keller.

Gettysburg's Mike Walls picked up his second win in-a-row in the 20
lap thundercar feature. Walls, who started 10th, worked his way into the
top-five by the fourth lap while polesitter Mike Zeigler Jr. raced out
front. Third-starting Sam Gallagher took the lead away from Zeigler on the
fifth lap while Walls continued his charge to the front by moving into
third. Walls slipped around Zeigler on the sixth lap to take over the
runner-up spot and immediately set his sights on the leader.
Walls made his race-winning pass on the seventh lap, but the win was
anything but certain as Gallagher and fifth-starting Craig Wagaman stayed
with the race-leading Walls over the final laps.
Walls made it really exciting in the final turns to the checkered as
he slipped sideways, opening the door for Gallagher. But Gallagher actually
straightened Walls out when they touched, and then the drag race to the
checkered was on with Walls barely hanging on for the win.
The wins was Walls' 16th career win, tying him with Mike Zeigler Sr.
for eighth on the all-time thundercar win list.
Wagaman finished third, Doug Devilbiss fourth, and Neil Smith fifth.
Completing the top-10 were Ron Shultz, Nat Tuckey, Dan Zechman, Tom Slusser
Jr. and Larry Niederer.
Heats for the 31 thundercars were won by Zeigler Jr., Gallagher and
Wagaman, with Slusser winning the consolation.

Next Saturday, April 16th, Lincoln will host the same three point
division regulars - the Cindy Rowe Auto Glass 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints &
Thundercars. Gates will open at 5 PM, with racing action getting underway at
7 PM.

RAHMER NOW THREE-FOR-THREE IN LINCOLN SPRINTS;
Kistler wins INEX Legends thriller; Walls makes last-lap pass to win
thundercar feature


    ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 3/26/05 - There are two things that are certain
after three weeks of sprint car racing at Lincoln Speedway. The first is
that defending champ Fred Rahmer is the man to beat.  The second is that
he'll start 12th next week.
    A lucky pill draw put Rahmer on in the inside of row two for the
start, up front just enough to steer clear of a ten-car melee that destroyed
the sprinters of front row starer Glenndon Forsythe and row four starter
Chris Knopp.  The crash also took out the sprinters of Lucas Wolfe, Brent
Kluge, Rick Lafferty, and Niki Young.
    "I'm usually pretty proud of the guys we race with," said Rahmer.
"But the last couple nights, it's been almost embarrassing...they race off
the fourth corner like there getting paid three-grand to get to the
flagman."
    "It's pretty upsetting with the cost of the cars. Everybody makes
mistakes, but it's been a little ridiculous."
    Though he dominated the feature, Rahmer was nearly taken out himself
by the cars of Brian Montieth and Jeff Shepard, who got together exiting
turn four of lap 11.  Rahmer was forced high in turns three and four by the
lapped car of Sam Schlosberg, then pitched the car sideways to dive to the
bottom of the track to get under the two-car tangle.
    "I just look way ahead," said Rahmer once again on missing another
potential big accident. "My dad taught me that a long time ago...a little
bit of it is getting lucky too."
    "I got the lapped car putting me into the fence going in (turn
three). I thought I was going to be junk there and got it turned. I was just
fortunate and glad to win."
    The rest of the race went non-stop, with Rahmer pulling away to a
3.31-second win, his third in three weeks and 137th of his Lincoln career.
    Crossing second was Eric Stambaugh, with Josh Wells, Cliff Brian,
and Greg Hodnett completing the top five.  Sixth through tenth were Lance
Dewease, Jason Johnson, Mark Smith, Stevie Smith, and Doug Esh.
    "Yeah, I look forward to it," said Rahmer upon being told he would
start no better than 12th next week. "It's awful easy starting off the
front."
    "Next week from 12th...I'm going to do what it takes to get to the
front because this is the good time of the year."
    "I've got to thank everybody at Miller Brothers and Materials
Handling Systems," Rahmer added. "We've got so many good sponsors with Media
Camping Center...Timmy has the car going absolutely excellent."
    "The VRP Shocks make the car so stable. Todd Shaffer has switched to
them and now he looks like he is going to be a problem. I just talked to him
a little too much I guess. He was really good last night (at Williams
Grove)."
    "My car was so good in the heat race we were afraid to touch it for
the feature," said Rahmer. "We were a little bit off...but starting off the
front was the whole deal."
    Heats for the 30 "410" sprinters were won by Montieth, Rahmer and
Young, with Dewease winning the consolation.

    Rod Kistler won an INEX Legends feature that saw five cars battle
for the top spot over the second half of the race, crossing a half-carlength
in front of Jason Rochelle.  Rochelle led twice the race, from lap three to
nine and then again on laps 13 and 14.  In between, Allen Felix paced the
field.  Kistler, who started eighth, didn't lead until the final turn.
    Finishing third behind Kistler and Rochelle was Felix, with early
race leader Ronnie Dunstan fourth and Bill Harris fifth.  2004 national
champ Randy Kissinger was also in the hunt for the win until spinning out on
backstretch of the final lap.
    Heats for the 14 INEX Legends were won by Felix, Kistler and Jason
Rochelle.

    Six-time 2004 winner Mike Walls saved his best for last as he dove
under race leader Craig Wagaman in the final turns to the checkered to pick
up his first win of 2005 in the 20-lap thundercar feature.
    Walls, who started ninth worked his way through the field as outside
frontrow starter Roy Warehime Jr. led the first lap before surrendering the
top spot to the fifth-starting Wagaman on the second. Walls worked his way
under Warehime for the runner-up spot on the 13th lap and set sail after the
leader. In the final two laps Walls switched to the bottom groove and began
to close on Wagaman and took his only shot at the lead in the final turns to
the checkered. Walls then out-raced Wagaman to the checkered to earn his
well-deserved 15th career Lincoln win.
    Spring Thaw 20 winner Duane Watson started 11th and finished third,
with last week's regularly scheduled thundercar winner Ron Shultz finishing
fourth and defending thundercar champ Mike Zeigler Sr. fifth.
    Completing the top-10 were Warehime, Nat Tuckey, Doug Devilbiss, Dan
Zechman and Howard Williams.
    Heats for the 27 thundercars were won by Walls, Tuckey and Zechman,
with Hahn winning the consolation.

    Next Saturday night, April 2nd, Lincoln will hold one more 6 PM
start before moving to 7 PM starts on April 9th. The 410 sprint and
thundercar regulars will be joined by the ever-popular Limited Late Models
from Silver Spring Speedway next Saturday night, April 2nd.

RAHMER REMAINS UNBEATEN IN LINCOLN 410 SPRINTS;
Trout ends long win drought in 358's; Watson takes "Spring Thaw 20," Shultz
regular feature in thundercars


ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 3/19/05 - Lesson No.1 - Don't let Fred Rahmer start
12th. Lesson No.2 - Don't let Fred Rahmer start on the front row.
As for a logical starting spot for Fast Freddie, one driver
suggested "Mechanicsburg" after the eight-time and defending track champ
made it two-for-two in 2005 at Lincoln Speedway early Saturday evening.
Rahmer took the lead as a spinning polesitter Jim Siegel performed
a flawless "360" on turn two of lap one and lead every lap in scoring the
136th win of his Lincoln career.
"We got fortunate on the pill draw", said Rahmer upon exiting his
winning Joe Harz No.88H sprint car in victory lane. "It really turned out to
be more critical than I thought."
The slick daytime surface even made passing the lapped cars a
challenge, with Rahmer splitting the lapped cars of Kyle Pruitt and Dan
Shetler to give himself some breathing room over a closing Doug Esh in turn
three of lap nine.
"You just have to jam it through," said Rahmer on navigating the
heavy lapped traffic. "Timmy (Elwell) said lapped cars were going to be
critical...you don't like to over extend, but you can't take a break
either."
"You just might as well jam it through and screw yourself up than
have somebody else screw you up."
"I seen the No.12 was on the board so obviously Jeff (Shepard) was
running pretty well and the No.77," Rahmer added.
A lap later (lap 10), Esh scrambled to hold off the charges of Jeff
Shepard, who started fifth and got by Brian Montieth on a third lap restart
for third. Shepard took second from Esh in heavy lapped traffic on turns
one and two of lap 11, and chased Rahmer until pulling into the pits with a
flat tire during a caution for a spinning Jason Johnson on lap 21.
Greg Hodnett, who started seventh, assumed the runner-up spot for
the restart, but had to deal with the lapped car of Brent Kluge before
getting a shot at Rahmer. By then, it was too late, and Rahmer crossed 1.14
seconds ahead of the Manheim Auto Auction No.77 at the finish for his fourth
overall win of 2005.
Esh, Montieth, and Lance Dewease rounded out the top five.
Completing the top ten were Jeff Busby, Lucas Wolfe, Kevin Schaeffer, Jim
Siegel, and Mark Smith.
Heats for the 28 "410" sprinters were won by Cliff Brian, Shepard
and Hodnett, with Josh Wells winning the consolation.
Chad Trout, who won the 2004 Lincoln title without a victory last
year, put the rest of the field on notice that he's planning a second
straight championship by winning the 2005 Northeast season opener for "358"
sprints.
The Felton driver, who spent the entire week in bed and credited his
crew and Jim Strausbaugh for getting the car ready, started on the pole and
led every lap.
Jeff Young started second and finished there, with eighth-starting
Mike Lehman crossing third, Keith Prutzman finishing fourth, and Blane
Heimbach completing the top five. Sixth through tenth were Chad Layton,
Brad McClelland, Alan Krimes, Rusty Pressley, and Billy Dietrich.
Heats for the 35 "358" sprinters were won by Scott Geesey, Trout,
Billy Dietrich and TJ Stutts. Twin consolations were won by Howie Locke and
Steve Clabaugh.
Duane Watson started the afternoon off by picking up his eighth
career thundercar win in the postponed "Spring Thaw 20" from one week ago.
Watson, who started third, passed race-long leader Sam Gallagher on
the 12th lap for the lead and then held-off Mike Walls the final six laps to
take the checkered .22-seconds ahead for the win. Ron Schultz, defending
thundercar champion Mike Zeigler Sr. and Nat Tuckey completed the top-five.
Completing the top-10 were Dan Zechman, Sam Gallagher, Mike Gladfelter, Mike
Slaybaugh and Ed Ashman.
Then in the regularly scheduled 20-lap thundercar feature,
eighth-starting Ron Shultz tracked-down race-long leader Neil Smith over the
first four laps, grabbed the lead on the fifth, and raced away to his 10th
career thundercar win in the Pigeon Hills.
Shultz had his work cut out for him though over the second half of
the race as both Duane Watson and Neil Smith battled with him
bumper-to-bumper for the win. But in the end, the battle between Watson and
Smith allowed Shultz to pull away to a 1.57-second win.
Watson and Smith were followed by Nat Tuckey, and Jake Markey to
complete the top-five. Completing the top-10 were Duane Hahn, Dan Zechman,
Roy Warehime Jr., Bob Stough and Al Cramer.
Heats for the 33 thundercars were won by Watson, Shultz and Walls.
Stoverstown's Mike Zeigler Jr. was involved in a hard crash during
his heat which resulted in possible leg and shoulder injuries and was
transported (conscious and alert) to York Hospital. His father, defending
champ Zeigler Sr., immediately left the speedway to be with his son and did
not race in the second feature.
On another interesting note, the thundercars started with 33-cars in
the pits, but by the time the regularly scheduled feature took to the track
at the end of the day, only 19-remained. On another interesting note, Mike
Walls finished second in his own car in the first feature. Then was forced
to drive another for qualifying for the second, and then jumped into a third
to start the second feature.
Next Saturday, March 26th, Lincoln switches to evening racing action
with the 410 sprinters and thundercars being joined by the INEX Legends at 6
PM, with gates opening at 4 PM.

RAHMER BEGINS 2005 SEASON WITH SEVENTH LINCOLN OPENING DAY WIN;
"Cowboy" Jim Kennedy claims 305 win in the midst of snow squall; Thundercars
to run makeup 3/19


ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 3/12/05 - Defending Lincoln champ Fred Rahmer
picked up where he left off last year in claiming the Northeast season
opening "Icebreaker 30" at Lincoln Speedway Saturday afternoon.
The Salfordville driver pulled pill No.12 to start in his customary
outside sixth-row starting spot, but it didn't faze him a bit. He was tenth
at the end of lap one, advanced to eighth on the slick daytime surface by
the end of lap three, passed Jeff Busby for seventh on lap four, and got
around Jason Johnson to move into sixth on lap five.
He stayed there until lap 11, when he passed Leppo on the
backstretch. He then vaulted around both Eric Stambaugh and Greg Hodnett to
move into third as race-long leader Rick Lafferty approached lapped traffic
on lap 14. He drove around Josh Wells for the runner-up spot in turns three
and four of lap 16. At the time, Lafferty enjoyed nearly a second
and-a-half lead.
Tight racing in turns three and four led to a Wells spin while
running third on lap 20, putting Rahmer on the New Jersey driver's bumper
for the restart. Rahmer made a high side move in turns three and four to
grab the top spot. He led the rest of the way despite heavy pressure from
Hodnett, who was placed in front of Lafferty after the second of two
successive cautions.
Hodnett pressured Rahmer in turns three and four over each of the
last five laps. Rahmer's final margin of victory was a scant .34 seconds.
"I went on defense there at the end and just drove as fast...I knew
it rubbered off on turn two," said Rahmer in victory lane, "I knew if I
didn't come up off the bottom it was going to be hard for him to pass me. I
should have probably just stayed offensive and kept after it, but...you
know...that's a well-funded car and they're a good team, so they're going to
be tough. I'm just glad to win. When you can win from 12th at these
openers, that's pretty cool!"
The win was Rahmer's seventh on opening day in the Pigeon Hills, the
135th of his career, and his second overall win of 2005.
"I want to thank all the fans for coming out. This isn't exactly
'racing weather,' but I thank God we're racing. I was thinking about
quitting, but the two weeks when we were supposed to race, I was going nuts
at home. I don't know what I'm going to do when I'm not racing."
Eric Stambaugh, Lafferty, and Jason Johnson completed the top five,
with Lance Dewease, Mark Smith, Brian Montieth, Brian Leppo, and Jim Siegel
rounding out the top ten.
Heats for the 28 "410" sprinters were won by Hodnett, Lucas Wolfe
and Lafferty, with Sam Schlosberg winning the consolation.
Everett's "Cowboy" Jim Kennedy won one for the seniors by claiming
the 20-lap 305 sprint feature, driving around race-long leader Dusty Shatzer
on lap 17 and then through a driving snow squall over the final three laps.
Kennedy charmed the crowd with a professional yodeling performance in
victory lane before revealing that he's now "70 and-a-half" years young.
Kennedy was followed across the line by Shatzer, with Rod Ort, Tommy
Beavers, and Jim Wentz completing the top five.
Heats for the 14 "305" sprinters were won by Beavers and Wentz.
The heavy snow squall forced postponement of the 20-lap "Spring
Thaw" for thundercars. With qualifying completed earlier in the afternoon,
the thundercar feature is set for a makeup feature to be run in addition to
the regular three-division show of 410 sprints, 358 sprints, and thundercars
scheduled for next Saturday, March 19th. Gates will open noon, with the
first heat taking the green flag at 2 PM.
Heats for the 30 thundercars were won by Neil Smith, Mike Zeigler
Jr. and Craig Wagaman, with Mike Zeigler Sr. winning the consolation.
On Saturday, March 26th, Lincoln switches to evening racing action
with the 410 sprinters and thundercars being joined by the INEX Legends.

SNOW/COLD WEATHER ONCE AGAIN POSTPONES LINCOLN OPENER
PA 305 Sprints to join the season-opening show of 410 Sprints & Thundercars
on March 12th


ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 3/3/05 - Another snow storm followed by frigid cold weather
forced Lincoln Speedway promoters to postpone Saturday's afternoon's March
5th Northeast Season opener until next Saturday, March 12th at 2 PM.
An early week snow storm deposited several inches of snow on the Pigeon
Hills oval and turned the parking situation into an potential nightmare with
either snow, or possibly very wet and muddy conditions. The speedway itself,
along with the pits and spectator areas could have been ready (just as they
were the week before), but the prospect of a very bad situation in the
spectator parking areas led to the second consecutive postponement of the
2005 season-opening event.
Lincoln Promoter's Don & Bob Leiby, along with Alan Kreitzer, now have there
eyes set on kicking off the season next Saturday afternoon, March 12th, with
the originally scheduled first three-division show of the year with the
Pennsylvania 305 Sprinters joining the 410 Sprinters and thundercars.
The 410 Sprinters will try once again to compete in the Northeast
Season-opening $3,000-to-win "Ice Breaker 30" at the Pigeon Hill's
lightning-quick 3/8th mile high-banked oval. The Thundercars will round out
the three-division opening day festivities with there "Spring Thaw 20".
Once again, the gates will open at noon for the 2 PM afternoon show.
Saturday afternoon racing will continue at Lincoln through March 19th. For
more information on Lincoln Speedway, fans are encouraged to visit the
