Racing Roundup

By Brad Vores

The World of Outlaws invaded Williams Grove Speedway for its first of three season visits and when Friday night’s 25-lap feature was in the books, Daryn Pittman kept the money local, winning the feature event aboard the Mike Heffnerowned machine.

Pittman passed Brian Leppo with five laps to go and held off Leppo, Jason Sides, Stevie Smith and Steve Kinser.

Persistent drizzle forced cancellation of Saturday night’s WoO event at the Grove.

Shane Stewart used an off weekend with the ASCS National 360 Sprint tour to come to Selinsgrove Speedway for the Jack Gunn Memorial and left with his firstever win in the 30-lap challenge between URC and Selinsgrove’s 358 Sprints. Stewart’s win came in a car owned by Scott McClaren, whose car also won the past two Jack Gunn Memorial events at the track.

Stewart defeated Blane Heimbach, Pat Cannon, JJ Grasso and TJ Stutts.

Scott Haus won his 29th career Late Model main at Selinsgrove, taking the win over Tony Adams, Jim Yoder, Steve Campbell and Mike Walls.

Billy Dietrich was Friday night’s 358 Sprint car winner at Trail-Way Speedway over Mike Duncan Jr., Joe Trone Jr., Dale Hammaker and Jeff Rohrbaugh, while Gene Knaub won the 358 Late Model main over Duane Harbaugh, Mike Walls, Steve Clabaugh and Bobby Beard.

Grant Adams won a thrilling 25-lap 358 Late Model feature Saturday at Susquehanna Speedway Park to become the fifth different winner in as many races. Adams defeated Knaub, Justin Ehrhart, Steve Billet and Jake Lettich.

Harrisonville’s Logan Wagner made it three for three in PA 305 Sprint car action with a Friday night win at Clinton County Speedway over Jim Kennedy and Tom Worrick. Wagner has wins at Susquehanna, Path Valley and now Clinton County this season in his No. 7R. Check out the driver profile on Logan on my Web site www.ijustwannarace.com.

Friday night racing at Bedford Speedway was rained out, while Hagerstown Speedway also canceled its Saturday night program. Lincoln Speedway also had its Sunday night Sprint Car Spectacular rained out as well.

Rick Eckert won a second WoO Late Model main Thursday at Delaware International Speedway and maintained the points lead.

That will do it for this week. E-mail reaches me at Bvores@comcast.net.
