Racing Roundup

By Brad Vores

The World of Outlaw Sprints and Late Model series were in the area over the weekend with completely different results.

On the Sprint car side, the Outlaws were sent packing as the Pennsylvania Posse kept its winning streak alive at Williams Grove Speedway as Chad Layton and Fred Rahmer scored the two wins, making it six straight for the Posse against the Outlaws.

But on the Late Model side, defending WoO champion Josh Richards got the broom out and made a clean sweep at Delaware International and then again Saturday at Hagerstown Speedway.

Layton’s second career WoO win came in impressive fashion Thursday night as he scored the win over Joey Saldana, Sammy Swindell, Lucas Wolfe and Justin Henderson.

After two rain delays on Friday, Rahmer captured his sixth career WoO win at the Grove. Rahmer was slated to start 24th but moved up to 14th after a first-lap crash. Rahmer then took the lead when Brian Leppo ran low on fuel with two laps remaining to score the win over Sam Hafertepe Jr., Daryn Pittman, Joey Saldana and Steve Kinser.

Richards dominated the Concocheague 100 at Hagerstown, leading all but one lap in the win over Darrell Lanigan, Steve Francis, Jason Covert and Nick Dickson.

Mike Warrenfeltz won for the third time in pure stock action over Brian Miller, Danny Beavers, Charlie Pensinger and Steve Lowery.

Richards won at Delaware over Brady Smith, Steve Francis, Austin Hubbard and Dale McDowell.

Cory Haas raced to his second career 410 Sprint car win Saturday at Lincoln Speedway over Brian Montieth, Doug Esh, Alan Krimes and Jim Siegel.

Bobby Beard nipped Gene Knaub in a final lap shootout for the 358 Late Models, with Cam Zeigler, Bernie Beard and Craig Wagaman the top five finishers.

Tyler Walker won Saturday’s 410 Sprint car feature at Port Royal Speedway over Greg Hodnett, Chad Layton, Justin Henderson and Mark Coldren, with Mike Wagner finishing seventh.

Jim Bernheisel was the Port Royal Late Model winner over Scott Haus, Scott Flickinger, Bryan Bernheisel and Mitch Hack, with Tim Fedder 25th in the Cisney car.

Trevor Lewis snuck under Pat Cannon coming off the fourth turn on the final lap to win Saturday’s Jack Gunn Memorial Challenge race at Selinsgrove Speedway. Lewis won the 2009 version in the same fashion. Following the top two were Kevin Nouse, Nate Snyder and Blane Heimbach.

Jeff Rine made it four straight wins in Selinsgrove Late Model action over Tony Adams, Steve Campbell, Jim Yoder and Jeff Smith.

Daniel Cornman won Saturday’s Limited Late Model feature at The Rock, Allegany Motor Speedway over Matt Howsare and Matt Cosner, with Scott Daniels sixth.

Jake Jones won his second 358 Late Model feature Saturday at Susquehanna Speedway Park over Justin Ehrhart, DJ Groft, Gary Potts and Jason Rochelle.

Friday night racing at Bedford and Trail-Way Speedway were both canceled due to rain.

That’s a wrap for another week and as always e-mail reaches me at Bvores@comcast.net.
