Racing Roundup

By Brad Vores

Fred Rahmer continued his late-season hot spell with his second win of the season at Williams Grove Speedway.

Rahmer, who recently switched to Maxim chassis, started seventh in the 25-lap 410 sprint car feature and used a last lap, last turn pass on Steve Buckwalter for the win. The event went nonstop.

Rahmer scored the win over Buckwalter, Doug Dodson, Alan Krimes, Aaron Ott, Brent Marks, Daryn Pittman, Brian Montieth, Greg Hodnett and Mark Smith.

Cory Haas came from his 12th starting spot to win his third 20- lap 358 Sprint car feature of the season over Nicole Bower, Billy Johns, Scott Geesey and Danny Massey.

Gene Knaub won the 50-lap Thunder on the Farm 358 Late Model main Friday at Trail-Way Speedway over Mike Walls, Kyle Lear, Shaun Jones and Brian Lesley.

Mother Nature scored all of the wins on Saturday night as Lincoln, Selinsgrove and Williams Grove speedways all canceled their racing programs. Lincoln and Selinsgrove both used Sunday night as rain dates. Selinsgrove also canceled the show on Sunday, and its 358 National Open will not be made up, concluding the 2009 racing season at the track.

Lincoln Speedway used Sunday night to complete its Hank Gentzler Memorial for 410 Sprints, and it was Cory Haas capturing his first career 410 Sprint car win and the $4,000 payday. Haas won over Daryn Pittman, Cody Darrah, Brian Leppo and Lance Dewease.

Sad but not shocked over Penn State’s poor performance on prime time TV Saturday night in Happy Valley. I guess it could be a long season after all. So, until next week, e-mail reaches me at Bvores@aol.com.
