Racing Roundup

By Brad Vores

Kenny Moreland posted his first career Super Late Model feature win Saturday night at Hagerstown Speedway.

The Waldorf, Md., driver took the checkered flag in the 35-lap Red Nininger Memorial and the Hagerstown/ Winchester Shootout.

Moreland got around leader Steve Axtell Jr. on the 22nd lap and drove to the win over Gregg Satterlee, Austin Hubbard and Ronnie DeHaven Jr. and Frankie Plessinger finished 12th.

Steve Lowery won the Pure Stock main at Hagerstown over Dave Stouffer Jr., Keith Koontz, Tony Catlett and Brian Miller.

In Friday night’s Nininger Memorial Hagerstown/Winchester Shootout at Winchester Speedway, Satterlee used a final lap slide job on Dan Stone to secure the win over Stone, David Williams, Jamie Lathroum and Daryl Hills.

Brad McClelland captured his second career 410 Sprint car feature win Saturday at Lincoln Speedway after dominating the second half of the main in the win over Robbie Kendall, Tim Glatfelter, Jim Siegel and Cory Haas.

Austin Hogue recorded a career first win in the 358 Sprint car feature at Lincoln over Tyler Ross, Niki Young, Jeff Rohrbaugh and Cris Eash.

Chad Layton led all 25- laps of Saturday night’s 410 Sprint car feature at Port Royal Speedway to claim his second win of the season.

Steve Buckwalter, Blane Heimbach, Danny Holtgraver and Doug Esh completed the top-five finishers, with Mike Wagner taking the sixth spot.

Brett Schadel won the 25- lap Summer Championship for Late Models for his second win of the year. Schadel also led flag-to-flag to score the $2,000 payday over Coleby Frye, Donnie Schick, Mike Lupfer and Jim Yoder.

Tim Wagaman ended a two-year winless streak at Trail-Way Speedway after claiming his first win of the year in Friday’s 25-lap 358 Sprint car main. He defeated Austin Hogue, Brad McClelland, Isaac Sneeringer and Mike Bittinger.

Williams Grove Speedway canceled both its Friday night and Saturday night racing programs due to weather, while Bedford Speedway was rained out Friday night.

Last year, Sammy Swindell’s sprinter blew a tire on the final turn of the Kings Royal 410 Sprint car event at Eldora Speedway as he was headed to the checkered flag. Swindell stormed back this year in the same fashion as he took the lead on the 11th lap and drove to the $50,000 payday to become the 29th annual Kings Royal champion. It was his third career Kings Royal win and seventh win this season.

Kerry Madsen challenged Swindell late in the race and finished in the runner-up spot over Jac Haudenschild, Justin Henderson and Kraig Kinser, who started 23rd. Daryn Pittman led a few laps early and finished sixth.
