Racing Roundup

By Brad Vores

Chad Layton waited out a long night at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night to win the Jim Nace Memorial/ Dream Race Extreme.

Layton used a Lap 30 restart to drive by race-long leader Brian Montieth and then drove off to capture his biggest career win worth $15,000. Layton became the fourth different winner in as many Dream Race events. Layton pulled a slide job on the restart and drove away to his third win of the season at the track over Montieth, Mark Smith, Mike Erdley and Ryan Taylor. The race ended at 12:30 a.m. Mike Wagner was involved in a hard crash during the feature and was out for the night.

Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway, Jim Siegel scored an exciting win over Brent Marks, Brian Montieth, Don Kreitz and Greg Hodnett in the 410 Sprint feature.

Daryn Pittman captured the $4,000 prize in the URC Rislone 360 Nationals over Pat Cannon, Mark Smith, Gerard McIntyre and Blane Heimbach.

Adrian Shaffer took advantage of two other competitors’ bad luck and turned it into the big $5,500 payday in Saturday’s World Energy Systems 358 Sprint Championship at Lincoln Speedway.

Shaffer started fifth in the field, but it was Dale Hammaker who led the first 19 laps before his steering wheel fell off. This turned the lead over to Jeff Rohrbaugh, who only led two laps before his sprinter suffered a flat tire. Nate Snyder finished second over Brad McClelland, Aaron Ott and Scott Geesey.

Brian Walker won the PA 305 Sprint car feature over Logan Wagner, Mark Watkins, Steve Whary and Michael Wagner II.
