Racing Roundup

It was called total domination for Brian Montieth Saturday night at Lincoln Speedway.

After blowing by both track champ Fred Rahmer and Lance Dewease on Lap 14, the Phoenixville driver left those two and the rest of the field in the dust as he scored the win in the 40-lap Kenny Weld Memorial for 410 Sprints. His margin of victory was 9.82 seconds.

Dewease, Rahmer, Brent Marks and 12th-starter Brian Leppo were the top five.

Matt Cochran rode home with the big $5,000 payday after taking the win in the 30-lap Late Model Fall Classic Saturday at Selinsgrove Speedway. The 20-year-old driver drove by leader Jason Covert on Lap 27 and held off a hard charge by track champion Jeff Rine before securing his fourth career track win.

Rine came from the rear of the field to post the runner up finish over Covert, Dan Stone and Dylan Yoder.

Jake Waters captured a career first 305 Sprint car win in Saturday night’s 25-lap Racesaver 305 Sprint Blue Collar Classic at Port Royal Speedway.

Waters took the lead with nine laps complete and drove to the win, worth $750.

Jordan Thomas finished second but was disqualified in post-race inspection to turn second over to Nathan Gramely, with Ryan Stillwaggon, Tim Tanner and Rick Stief finishing in the top five.

Michael Wagner started 12th and was running second on the final lap when he caught the wall and flipped. His brother, Logan, set quick time over the 53-car field but didn’t finish the main event, being credited with 19th.

Wellsville’s Scott Geesey scored the flag-to-flag win in the 20-lap Super Sportsman feature over Rick Barr, Rich Eichelberger, Russ Mitten and Chad Criswell.
