Harrisonville's Mike Wagner ended a long dry spell at Port Royal Speedway with a big win Saturday night in the 410 Sprint car feature.

Wagner, aboard his own No. 55 sponsored by Clugston Lumber, Ott Brothers, Hershey's Racing Engines sprinter took the lead from Joey Hershey on lap 18 and drove to the win, his seventh career at the Port but his first in over four years. Dave Ely was second with Hershey third, Sean Michael fourth and Rick Lafferty fifth.

Dave Wyckoff won the Super Sportsman feature over Russ Mitten, Jay Fannasy, Rich Eichelberger and Dave Berkheimer.

Lance Dewease made it two straight in Williams Grove Speedway Sprint car action.

Backing up his first win last week, the Fayetteville driver pulled off the big $6,000 payday in Friday night's Tommy Classic.

The race was a classic with Dewease, Brian Leppo and Stevie Smith battling for the top spot during much of the 30-lap event with Dewease coming out on top at the end for his 70th career track win.

Smith was second with Leppo third, Keith Kauffman fourth and Brian Montieth fifth.

Scott Geesey added his name to the long list of feature winners at Lincoln Speedway with his first ever 410 Sprint car win Saturday night.

Geesey took control on lap one and never looked back in his win over Brent Marks, Lance Dewease, Fred Rahmer and Alan Krimes.

Craig Wagaman won the 358 late model feature at Lincoln over Jake Lettich, Charlie Schaffer, Gene Knaub and Bob Stough. Corey Houck finished ninth.

The Lucas Oil Late Model Series was in town for the weekend with races at Hagerstown Speedway and Bedford Speedway.

Tim Fuller was in the right place at the right time to take the $10,000 win at Hagerstown. Fuller was running second when Billy Moyer's car came up lame on lap 30 turning the lead to Fuller, who then drove to the win over Jimmy Mars, Scott Blooomquist, Rick Eckert and Brian Birkhofer. Making the most of a provisional starting spot, Frankie Plessinger turned in a 12th place finish.

Terry Flaherty was the late model sportsman winner over Kyle Lear, Andy Fries, Robert Weaver and Richard Walls.

Jimmy Mars came out on top of the Lucas Oil series event Friday night at Bedford Speedway. Mars scored the win over Birkhofer, Billy Moyer, Rick Eckert and Josh Richards were the top five finishers.

Jason Shultz won his fifth career 358 Sprint car feature Saturday night at Selinsgrove Speedway over Nate Snyder, Kevin Nouse, Phil Walter and Matt Heimbach.

Jeff Rine set a new 25-lap track record in the late model feature at Selinsgrove with a time of 9:04.129 seconds. His third win this season came over Tony Adams, Brett Schadel, Coleby Frye and Steve Campbell.

Joe Trone, Jr. won Friday's 358 Sprint Spring Championship at Trail-Way Speedway over Tim Wagaman, Dale Hammaker, Billy Dietrich and Kyle Moody.

Scott Fisher won the 358 late model main Saturday at Susquehanna Speedway in just his third career event. He won over Pat Beard, Carl Graves, Charles Potts and Billy Wampler.

The All Star Sprints will be invading Williams Grove and Lincoln this weekend with two big events along with all of the other regular events at other area tracks. So until next week, we hope we get to enjoy an actual spring during the coming month and not all summer like temps! Email reaches me at Bvores@aol.com.
