Racing Roundup

By Brad Vores

Three new drivers visited victory lane in central PA 410 Sprint car racing over the weekend, making it 17 different winners in 20 races so far in 2011. Fred Rahmer, Justin Henderson and Alan Krimes are the latest drivers to score a win.

Rahmer won Friday night’s Outlaw Tuneup at Williams Grove with a late race pass on Brian Montieth for his 84th career track win. Montieth, Danny Dietrich, Don Kreitz and Greg Hodnett were the top-five finishers.

Pat Cannon made it four wins on the season in 358 Sprint car races this season as he came from 12th to win the 20-lap event at the Grove over Kyle Purks, Rodney Westhafer, Eric Tomecek and Colby Womer.

Krimes won an exciting 410 Sprint feature Saturday at Lincoln Speedway after a spirited battle with Justin Collett over the final eight laps. Krimes took the win over Collett, Rahmer, Adam Wilt and Dietrich.

Glenndon Forsythe won the 358 Sprint car main at Lincoln over Jeff Rohrbaugh, Billy Dietrich, Logan Schuchart and Tim Wagaman. Harrisonville’s Logan Wagner led the first nine laps and was running a close second on the final lap when he jumped the cushion and flipped.

Henderson also used a late race surge to take the lead from Chad Layton with less than two laps to go to win his first career sprint car feature at Port Royal Speedway Saturday night. Henderson defeated Layton, Keith Kauffman, Greg Hodnett and Tyler Walker with Harrisonville’s Mike Wagner finishing 10th.

Gary Beward won his fourth career Port Royal Late Model feature over Scott Haus, Jim Yoder, Scott Flickinger and Dylan Yoder.

Frankie Herr won for the first time this season in Super Sportsman action at Williams Grove Speedway over Russ Mitten, Carmen Perigo, Scott Dellinger and Paul Miller.

Gene Kanub made it three in a row in Williams Grove 358 Late Model action, taking the win over Grant Adams, Jake Jones, Charlie Schaffer and Chase Billet.

Trevor Little scored a career first 358 Sprint car win Friday at Trail-Way Speedway as the 18-year-old took the win over JB Cunningham, Billy Dietrich, Tim Wagaman and Cris Eash.

Chris Knopp was the Saturday night 358 Late Model winner at Susquehanna Speedway over Randy Christine Jr., Justin Ehrhart, Tommy Slanker and Alex Updegraff.

Jeremy Miller won Friday night’s Three State Flyers Late Model series event at Natural Bridge Speedway.

Jason Covert won Saturday’s Lee Stultz Memorial for late models at Winchester

Speedway over Jamie Lathroum, Mark Pettyjohn, Jeremy Miller and Mc- Connellsburg’s Frankie Plessinger.

Bedford Speedway canceled its Friday night program due to excessively wet grounds, and Selinsgrove Speedway was canceled on Saturday night due to late afternoon thunderstorms.

The World of Outlaws sprints invade Williams Grove Speedway this weekend with Friday and Saturday night events. Then Lincoln Speedway will hold a special Sunday night Sprint Car Spectacular to benefit the Eastern Museum of Motor Racing.

That’s it for this week as e-mail continues to reach me at Bvores@comcast.net.
