It was another weekend that saw Mother Nature get the upper hand on many area speedways as severe storms pounded through portions of central Pennsylvania.

Bedford Speedway was the lone local Friday night track to get spared by the elements as Derek Byler scored his second Late Model win of the season.

Byler took the lead on Lap 14 and held off Jack Pencil, Jeff Rine, Scott Rhodes and Scott Haus for the win.

Daniel Cornman won the Limited Late Model feature over Rick Singleton, Tim Smith Jr., Justin Kann and Matt Howsare. Williams Grove and Trail-Way Speedway were also rained out.

Hagerstown Speedway lost the Appalachian Mountain Late Model Speedweek opener on Saturday night after 52 cars signed in for competition. The race will not be made up.

Lincoln Speedway lost Saturday’s Weldon Sterner Memorial for 410 Sprints to rain, and that event will be made up on July 31t.

Port Royal Speedway lost its All Star Sprint-sanctioned Bob Weikert Memorial for a second time, and now that race has been rescheduled for September 25, two weeks after the track’s final scheduled race. Other Saturday tracks losing to Mother Nature were Williams Grove, Selinsgrove and Susquehanna. The PA 305 Sprints were in action Friday at Clinton County Speedway, where Nathan Gramely won the feature over Ryan Lynn, Mark Watkins, Logan Wagner and Tom Worrick. Michael Wagner was 13th.

Late Model Speedweek kicked off Sunday night at Selinsgrove Speedway, where Nick Dickson bested a 51-car field for the $5,000 payday. Dickson led all 40 laps in the win over Rick Eckert, Jeremy Miller, Frankie Plessinger and Steve Campbell with Jason Covert, Jamie Lathroum, Ricky Elliott, Tim McCreadie and Jeff Rine the top-10 finishers.

Appalachian Mountain Late Model Speedweek continues Wednesday at Lincoln with Port Royal Thursday and ending Friday at Bedford.
