Hamlin, PA- Hamlin Speedway Ends Another Great Season With Seven Thrilling Feature Events

The Hamlin Speedway closed their regular racing season last evening. The in-place to be was loaded with tremendous racing activity last evening and was able to run through the evening and have a great night at the speedway. The crowd was up and the roster a solid one as once again the X-Cel Modifieds were part of the final show race card for the season. Once again the Smith Fanily was off and running with some superb heat racing action and eight great feature events. The racing action at the 1/5th mile clay-cushioned facility has been remarkable with many outstanding driving personalities carving out their own claim to fame in weekly competition for age groups from 8 to 60 plus.

The 2019 season is now complete after eighteen weeks of over the top racing action taking place. Recapping the action on Saturday had some of the drivers showing what they have done all season at Hamlin, get to the front and stay there until the checkered flag waves. Kasey Hufcut, a New Yorker, made a big impact this season with some drives to the front and he captured the Junior Slingshot action once again. Some scrambling towards the end had "The Traveling Man" Mick D'Agostino in the wnner's circle in the Regular 600 main event. The Rookie main event for the 600 Sprints was captured by invader Morgan Richelle. Rookie Slingshot star James Benz had the lead, lost the lead and then roared back to claim his first win of the season in the All Star Slingshot field. Tanner VanDoren was quick from the greeen flag and went on to claim the win in the Hampton RV & Trailer Sales Stage One Modifieds. Greg Zellman is only a part-time performer at Hamlin but he was johnny on the spot last evening when the two cars in front of him faltered after the halfway point of the event and he went on to capture the Super Slingshot win. The X-Cel Modified feature winner was found to be illegal and then the second place man was as well so Shawna Schibilia who thought she finished in third place now became the winner of the X-Cel Modified feature event.

Pole Sitter Tanner VanDoren took command of the Stage One feature at the start and quickly carved out a huge lead over the rest of the field. Third place starting Amanda Buchel had a quick race car at her as she quickly moved into the runner-up slot. With VanDoren way ahead of the field, all eyes remained on the run for second place as both Buchel race cars (Amanda and Adam) were behind him along with a guy who hadn't raced in over five years Kyle "Hot Rod" Rode and "Mighty" Mike Samony. The particular vewrsion of the event was an eye catcher for the fans who truly enjoy the closeness of the close knit action at Hamlin. Van Doren was the winner with Amanda and Adman Buchel following with Kyle Rode, Michael Samony and Jeff Hineline completing the top six. Anthony Chrobak headed up the next spots with John Bachetti, Joel Price and Mark Evans following.

In the Super Slingshots, "The Oxford Express" Dale Kober was all business as he took the lead at the start and was able to carve some huge distance between he and second place runner Paul Ennes. As the pair raced far in front of the field, smoke began billowing out of the Kober race car. Ennes at that point pulled in front of the pit exit and shut off, calling for a restart. Before the restart could ensue, Kober pulled to the infield with some major problems on his race car. Third place man Greg Zellman, through the process of elimination, now found himself leading the field around the Hamlin clay. Zellman would earn the win over Wally Bell, Jim Conroy, Alan Kober, David Guest, Mark Exeter and Jeremy Hoffman in the top seven.

The Rookie feature for the 600 Sprints began with Morgan Rochelle showing the hot hand from the center of the raceway. "The Ry-Guy" Ryan Stangle made his return to the speedway a successful one as he was glued in as the runner-up in this one. Michael Nolf, who is one of the surprises of the year, was a tick off and managed third place in this one. Jacob Eby began from last place but moved through the field to end up in fourth place. Last week's winner Tony Parlanti finished fifth. Victor Cleary headed up the second five with Rich Maguire, Dennis Chamberlain, Jason Garcia, and "Pops" Carmen Leggio completing the top ten.

In the regular event for the 600 Sprints Noah Zielinski took the lead and began to carve out a nice lead on the field. Tyler Lindsay made some bold and exciting moves to slide into the runner-up status with Zack Weisenfluh, Mick D'Agostino Chad Sandt and Ryan Stangle really having a go at it for positions. Disaster struck Zielinski as passing lapped cars became entangled with one of them and forced to go to the rear of the field. Times move fast and D'Agostino came away with the lead and raced away to the checkered flag on this one. Tyler Lindsay would finish second with Zack Weisenfluh third Chad Sandt fourth and Ryan Stangle residing in fifth place, a crazy finish to an exciting event at the speedway. The seocnd five was headed up by Mack Brink, Brandon Nicholas, Noah Zielinski, the returning Zach Bealer and Dennis Stawinsky.

The Junior Slingshot found Kasey Hufcut taking the lead and quickly stepping away form the field. Charlene Benz was solid in the runner-up role. Behind her the drivers were jockeying for position with Aiden Elliott, Aiden Donaldson, RJ Sherman and James Hendricks having a great go at it. Hufcut would go on for the win with Benz in second place. Elliott would remain in third place with Donaldson, Sherman and Hendricks following. Chase Zimmer raced to seventh in this one with last week's winner Doug Smith in eighth, Matthew BAckus ninth and Isabella VanOrden in tenth.

The All Star Slingshot event began with James benz leading for a lap before giving way to Brian Smith. Smith would go on and lead until lap twelve grabbing the lead from the pole position. On lap thirteen Benz would muster up the power and get by Smith with an insdie move in turn three. Once in front Benz remained there until the checkered flag was displayed. Shelby McLaughlin was fast and was precise on the speedway and quickly moved into second place where she chased Benz until the race was completed. Scott Neary borrowed a car last night and was third with it. Brain Smith was fourth with Andrew Turpin steady in fifth place.Paul Ennes was sixth with Joey Kalafut, Ashley Kober, Justin Newhard and Wally Bell completing the top ten.

In what would be a run for naught Jared Green and Brett Gray would duke it out over twenty laps with Green receiving the checkered flag. As Yogi Berra once proclaimed, "It ain't over till it's over" things changed quickly from the end of the event as neither Green nor Gray paased through the rigid inspection process and both were deemed illegal for the evening and thus handing the win to third place runner Shawna Schibilia. A shuffle in the finish had Zane Roth, Ivan Forney, Travis Fichter and Aiyden Morgan following.

Pearl Jams:

The track was racy from start to finish and Track Promoter Randy Smith continued to work on the speedway as necessary for the activity on the speedway was non-stop but very racy throughout. Randy Smith keeps doing remarkable work at the speedway with as many as five grooves on the speedway for the racers and a dust free environment.

James Benz and Amber Baccaligni captured the heat wins for the All Star Slingshots. The Junior Slingshot heats went to Aiden Elliott and Kasey Hufcut The Stage One Modifieds ran two heat events with Tanner VanDoren and Adam Buchel the winners and the Super Slinger heat found Dale Kober at the head of the pack. The JPA Masonry Wingless heats were claimed by "Bad" Chad Sandt and Mick D'Agostino. The JPA Masonry Rookie 600 Sprints ran two heats and Morgan Rochelle and Michael Nolf were victorious. The X-Cel heats were captured by Jared Green and Brandon Graner

"The Ambassador" Wes Hearn and his son Wesley were at the controls of the flags last night at the speedway as regular flagger Russ Furry is still hobbled by injuries he suffered at his regular job but was still in attendance at the speedway.

Fred Johnson captured the 50/50 last evening.

Dale Borger who heads up the X-Cel Modified division was on hand last evening and did the checking on the cars to see if they were legal or as he found out not. Borger did explain that some of the cars race in New York and use different rules but the cars in question did not comply to X-Cel Modified rules.

Amber Baccaligni's grandmother passed away on Tuesday and Amber requested and granted the privilege to pay tribute to her prior to her feature event. The speedway sends condolences to the Baccaligni Family with her passing

Another great crowd on hand for the night of racing. Thank you folks and make sure you tell your friends about Hamlin Speedway, the "Pearl in the Poconos." Please make sure you look at the sites invovled with Hamlin Speedway. There just may be another event at the speedway this coming week.

To the Smith Family, thank you for taking the Hamlin Speedway far beyond it's capacity.

Hamlin, PA- Hamlin Speedway Beats The Weather With Eight Feature Events
By: Steve Pados, GA Motorsports Media

The Hamlin Speedway was loaded with tremendous racing activity last evening and with an eye on the weather in the Poconos, was able to soldier through it and have a great night at the speedway. The crowd was up and the roster was down with the drivers fearing the speedway might get wet. Once again the Smith Fanily was off and running with some superb heat racing action and eight feature events. The racing action at the 1/5th mile clay-cushioned facility has been remarkable with many outstanding driving personalities carving out their own claim to fame in weekly competition for age groups from 8 to 60 plus and many of the drivers last night were first time winners in their current division. With rain falling throughout the area, it was truly a miracle the Smith Family was able to pull this event off.

The 2019 season is now seventeen weeks old and many special events have been already been completed but the racing action is just a week away from being compeleted at Hamlin. To recap the action on Saturday some drivers at the speedway gained a first, meaning they won their first ever event at the speedway taken over by the Smith Family in 2005. Doug Smith, a nearby resident of Mount Cobb, captured the Junior Slingshot action. Tyler LIndsay had the hot foot in in the Regular 600 main event and came away as a winner. The Rookie main event for the 600 Sprints was captured by Tony Parlanti. Last season's Junior Slingshot champion, Shelby McLaughlin, was way ahead of the curve last night as she powered her way to a win in the All Star Slingshot field. Unheralded Jame Costlow had the fast ticket around the Hamlin Speedway last night as he outgunned a stellar turnout of equipment in the Smith Family Memorial event for the Hampton RV & Trailer Sales Stage One Modifieds. Wally Bell was quick to ring the bell as he captured the Super Slingshot win

James Costlow, who had been in the past running with the Slingshots, took command of the Smith Family Memorial at the start and quickly carved out a lead over the rest of the field. Amand Buchel, who began from third place, had a quick race car at her disposal and with each lap closed a bit on Costlow. With the 30-lap distance in place, Costlow remained strong throughout the event and was able to hold both Buchel race cars (Amanda and Adam) behind him to go on and capture his first win in the Stage One division. Amanda and Adman Buchel followed with Jeff Hineline rushing to fourth place with Ricky Bobby nailing down a top five finish. Anthony Chrobak headed up the next five finishers with Tanner VanDoren, Mike Samony, Joel Price, Mark Evans, and Evan Civick following.

In the Super Slingshots, Wally Bell was all business as he took the lead at the start and was able to carve some distance between he and second place runner Jim Conroy. Conroy had his hands full trying to defend his turf against a very pesty Dale Kober who tried every inch of the territory involved to get by him to no avail. Paul Ennes hustled his way through the field to grab up fourth place and Roger Collins returned to the speedway to nail down a top five finish. David Guest, Mark Exeter and Jeremy Hoffman followed.

The diminshed Rookie feature for the 600 Sprints began with Tony Parlanti showing the hot hand from the top of the raceway. Brandon Nicholas and Jake Eby tried to track Parlanti down but were engaged in their own super battle for position and Parlanti scooted away from them. Parlanti captured the win with Nicholas in second, Eby third, Cody Powell in fourth and Carmen Leggio in fifth place.

In the regular event for the 600 Sprints Noah Zielinski lead the first lap until a restart slowed the action. On the restart, Mack Brink nosed his way outfront with the thundering herd following closely behind. Tyler Lindsay using all angles of the raceway was able to move in and successfully make the pass on Brink from the top of the raceway. Lindsay made the winning pass stick the remainder of the event and captured the win with Brink settling for runner-up honors. Reigning track champion Mick D'Agostino was third in this one with Noah Zielinski in fourth place and Zack Weisenfluh settling for fifth. "The Big Show" Joey Amantea hustled to sixth place with Kyle Ferrucci, Ryan Bohlke, Dennis Stawinsky, Don Colaluce and Jacob Nemeth finshing up the places.

The Junior Slingshot found RJ Sherman leading for a lap and a spin brought the action to a halt. Doug Smith, who had been in a position to win some races, on the restart quickly found the top of the raceway to be the hot spot on the raceway as he took over the lead and lead the remainder of the event to capture the win. Sherman was the runner-up with Aidan Donaldson doing great work to finish third. Aidan Elliot and Charlene Benz completed the top five. Isabella VanOrden was sixth with the returning Connor Mirabelli seventh and Chase Zimmer eighth, Cole Perez in ninth and Kasey Hufcut tenth.

The All Star Slingshot event began with Shelby McLaughlin grabbing the lead from the pole position. McLaughlin was fast and was precise on the speedway hitting her marks at each step and carved out a huge lead over the field. Paul Ennes was in the runner-up role and just held his position down for second place. Scott Neary, who was running third, had a gang of cars behind him looking for a spot but Neary was strong enough to hold the feild at bay. James Benz was fourth in this one and Brian Smith hustled to fith place. Joey Kalafut hit his notes as he headed up the second five with Ashley Kober, Wally Bell, Andrew Turpin, and Justin Newhard nailing down top ten finishes.

Jeff Metsger was all speed as he took the lead at the start of the PA Winged Outlaw event and led all of the way to a win over Clint Loss. It was the first appearance of the division at Hamlin.

In the rained out 600 Sprint feature from last month, "The Taylor Tornado" Zack Weisenfluh took over the lead with a pass of Mack Brink on lap nine to go and claim the win. "The Traveling Man" Mick D'Agostion utilized all of the raceway to claim runner-up honors in this one with Mack BRink in third place, Tyler LIndsay fourth and Joey Amantea in fifth. Kyle Ferrucci, Dennis Stawinsky, and Noah Zielinski rounded out the field.

Pearl Jams:

The track was racy from start to finish and Track Promoter Randy Smith continued to work on the speedway as necessary for the activity on the speedway was non-stop but very racy throughout. Randy Smith keeps doing remarkable work at the speedway with as many as five grooves on the speedway for the racers and a dust free environment.

Paul Ennes and Shelby McLaughlin captured the heat wins for the All Star Slingshots. The Junior Slingshot heats went to RJ Sherman and Doug Smith. The Stage One Modifieds rand two rounds of heat events with Michael Samony and James Costlow winning the first round and Tanner VanDohren and Amanda Buchel capturing the second round. The Super Slinger heat found Dale Kober at the head of the pack. The JPA Masonry Wingless heat was claimed by Noah Zielinski. The JPA Masonry Rookie 600 Sprints ran one heat and Brandon Nicholas was victorious. Russ Ludwig captured the lone heat for the PA Winged Outlaws and did one lap at 12.602 seconds.

"The Ambassador" Wes Hearn and his son Wesley were at the controls of the flags last night at the speedway as regular flagger Russ Furry is still hobbled by injuries he suffered at his regular job.

Anthony Chrobak Sr captured the 50/50 last evening.

One of the track regulars, Anthony "Chops" Chrobak spent a day at the Evergreen Speedway last week as part of the Rusty Wallace experience. Chrobak explained he learned alot from the experience as he expands his horizons in motorsports.

Hamlin, PA- Hoch, Eby And Hufcut All Bag Double Wins In Exciting Hamlin Speedway Feature Events

The Hamlin Speedway was loaded with tremendous racing activity last evening in the Pocono Mountains as the speedway hosted it's regular divisions and was buffered by the addition of a couple of extra feature events being run from a a couple of weeks back. With the Tour races for the Nationals All Stars and Junior Slingshots, the drivers flocked to the speedway with many new faces showing their talent and skills on the speedway. Once again the Smith Fanily was off and running with some superb heat racing action and seven feature events. The racing action at the 1/5th mile clay-cushioned facility has been remarkable with many outstanding driving personalities carving out their own claim to fame in weekly competition for age groups from 8 to 60 plus. The racing will once again take place at the speedway Saturday evening, August 31st, beginning at 6 PM.

The 2019 season is now fifteen weeks old and many special events have been already been completed but the heart of the racing schedule is ongoing and the racing action is always top flight at Hamlin. To recap the action on Saturday three drivers all bagged double wins at the speedway which is something that surprised all of the people on hand last night for the events. Kasey Hufcut captured both ends of the Junior Slingshot action and was matched by Jake Eby in the Regular and Rookie main events for the 600 Sprints and outside invader Dylan Hoch, who was smooth and steady as he outlasted the rest of the All Star Slingshot field with outstanding runs to capture both ends of his events. "Chops" Anthony Chrobak was fast and captured the feature win in the Stage One division for the Hampton RV & Trailer Sales Stage One Modifieds. "The Fighting Irishman" John Gilroy was quick and smooth as he captured the Super Slingshot wi

Anthony Chrobak took over the lead at the start of the event as he as the pole sitter was quick to the task at hand. Adam Buchel wasted no time as he followed Chrobak around the speedway. Chrobak never made a mistake all through the event as he hit his marks on the speedway and held a close lead all through the entire distance of the event. Tanner VanDoren did get around Buchel for runner-up honors with Buchel coming in third, Michael Samony hustling hard for fourth and Amanda Buchel working really hard to come back for fifth position at the end of her run. The returning Cody Motto headed up the second five with Joel Price, Evan Civick, newcomer Mark Tishler and Lawson Szerencits. The event was halted early in the running as Jeff Hineline got upside down on the backstretch and did some flips before coming back to earth. Hineline was uninjured in the wreck.

In the Super Slingshots, Wes Hearn was the initial leader for seven laps until coming out of turn two his racer shut down creating a scramble with John Gilroy emerging as the leader of the event. That was all the Tannersville resident needed as he raced to the win. Jimmy Conroy followed Gilroy home in this one followed by Paul Ennes, Mark Exeter and Jeremy Hoffman.

The Rookie feature for the 600 Sprints began wildly as the front tier of Jacob Nemeth and Dennis Chamberlain got together with Nemeth going upside down and landing in a heap on the front stretch of the facility. Nemeth was uninjured in the incident. The turn of event allowed for Jacob Eby to move into the number one spot and he took advantage of the mishap and controlled the event once the racing continued. Tony Parlant raced into the runner-up role with Michael Nolf third, Cody Powell fourth and Richie Maguire completing the top five. Brandon Nicholas recovered from a spin to head up the second five with Rich Maguire, Jason Garcia, Dennis Chamberlain and Carmen Leggio following.

In the regular event for the 600 Sprints Eby emerged with the pole for the event. At the start Eby was quick to take the lead and that was all he needed as he took the lead over Colin White. White, a former track champion, was all over Eby from start to finish but Eby never waivered and took the win with White settling for runner-up honors. Reigning track champion Mick D'Agostino was third in this one with Alex Bright in fourth place and Tyler Lindsay settling for fifth. Brandon Bright was sixth with Joey Amantea, Joel Smith, Noah Zielinski, and Richie Maguire rounding out the top ten.

The Junior Slingshot found Charlene Benz leading the first two laps before encountering some mechanical gremlins. Doug Smith was johnny on the spot and began cruising towards victory lane. Smith found woes in his car on lap sixtreen while leading and pulled to the infield. Kasey Hufcut assumed command and led the rmaing couple of laps to victory. Outside invader Tyler Ulsh was the runner-up with Aidan Elliot doing great work to finish third. RJ Sherman, and Charlene Benz completed the top five. Adian Donaldson was sixth with Chase Zimmer in a new car seventh, Cole Perez in eighth, Isabella VanOrden ninth and Dillon Beadle tenth.

The All Star Slingshot event began with 32 cars hoping for a shot at the bag of gold at the end of the event. Dyaln Hoch began form the pole and that is where he stayed all through the 50-laps of racing action. Jared Silfee was second throughout the event and although he got close was never able to pull the trigger for the hometown fans and settled for second place. Cody Kline was steady throughout and claimed third place. Kyle Herve was solid for fourth and Scott Neary came in for ffith place. Shelby McLaughlin headed up the second five with Tanner VanDoren, Mike McLaughlin, Alan Kober and Brian Smith nailing down top ten finishes. Joey Kalafut, invader Dave Carraghan, Wes Hearn, Justin Newhard, and Ashley Kober closed out the top fifteen.

Kasey Hufcut took the lead at the start of the rained out feature event and led all of the way to claim yet another win at the speedway. Invader Tyler Ulsh was the runner-up. RJ Sherman, Isabella VanOrden, and Charlene Benz rounded out the top five with Doug Smith, Aiden Elliot, Chase Zimmer, Dillon Beadle and Jenna Amantea closing out the top ten.

Dylan Hoch took the lead on the first lap of the event and that was all he was going to need to go and capture the win. Jared Silfee was the runner-up with Scott Neary, Cody Kline and Kyle Herve following. The second five found Shelby McLaughlin, Dave Carraghan, Tanner VanDoren, Dale Kober and Paul Ennes following.

Pearl Jams:

The track was racy from start to finish and Track Promoter Randy Smith continued to work on the speedway as necessary for the activity on the speedway was non-stop but very racy throughout. The drivers carried out their mission of speeds successfully as Smith had new clay installed during the week and the drivers utilized all of the track throughout the evening of events.

Jared Silfee, Tanner VanDoren, newcomer Mason Pittenger and Dylan Hoch captured the heat wins for the All Star Slingshots in the first round while Cody Kline, Wes Hearn, Dylan Hoch and Paul Ennes captured the second. The Junior Slingshot heats went to Charlene Benz and Doug Smith and the second round of heats went to Tyler Ulsh and Kasey Hufcut.. The Stage One Modified heats found Anthony Chrobak and Adam Buchel being victorious. The Super Slinger heat found John Gilroy at the head of the pack. JPA Masonry Wingless heats were claimed by Zack Weisenfluh and Colin White. Wes Hearn captured the heat win for the Supers. The JPA Masonry Rookie 600 Sprints ran two heats and Jacob Eby and Jacob Nemeth were the winners.

Flagger Russ Furry was on hand last evening as well but in the grandstands sitting one out as he is still hobbled by some injuries he received while working. Veteran flagger and go to guy Mike Feltenberger filled in for Russ on the stand once again for the evening

Jay Powell captured the 50/50 last evening to the tune of $83.00

Hamlin, PA- New Faces Land In Hamlin Speedway Winners Circle
By: Steve Pados, GA Motorsports Media

The Hamlin Speedway was once again the focal point of racing activity last evening in the Pocono Mountains as the speedway hosted it's regular divisions. Once again the Smith Fanily did all of their homework as the track was beyond racy and a full schedule of events took place on the Pocono hot spot. The speedway was off and running with some superb rained out features from last week, solid heat racing action and another batch of hot running feature events. The racing action at the 1/5th mile clay-cushioned facility has been over the top with many outstanding driving personalities carving out their own claim to fame in weekly competition for age groups from 8 to 60 plus and became even better last evening when some new faces found the joys that only a trip to victory lane can bring.

The 2019 season is now fifteen weeks old and many special events have been already been completed but the heart of the racing schedule is ongoing at Hamlin. This coming week the bikers will take over the speedway for some real good over the top racing action.

On Saturday night Brandon Graner topped the XCel Modified feature event with a sound but very close run over Kevin VanValkenburg. Jake Eby was fast and furious in the Rookie 600 Sprint bash. Wes Hearn has been knocking on the door but failing to move across the threshold but did so on Saturday night as he raced through the field to gain the win in the Supers. On the regular night of action, Cody Powell captured his first rookie 600 main event with a solid run to the checkers event. Paul Ennes captured his first main event since 2012 with a great run in the Supers. Kevin VanValkenburg was strong in capturing the X-Cel Modified feature event. Kasey Hufcut trounced a stellar field of Junior Slingshots with a wire to wire run. "The Oxford Express" Dale Kober was back to business as usual with a great triumph in the All Star Slingshot event. "The Electric Man" Colin White was spectacular as he rode the top of the raceway and took over the lead at the midway point of the event and raced for the win.

"Bad" Chad Sandt took the lead on the opening bell in the headliner event for the JPA Masonry Wingless Sprints. Colin White kept pressuring him on the turns and finally got a run off of the top of turn two to slip past Sandt for the lead at the midway point of the event. Once in front, White was a speed demon as he left the field behind him. White captured the win with Sandt in the runner-up role. Mick D'Agostino was third with Zach Weisenfluh fourth and Dylan Martin rounding out the top five. Noah Zielinski headed up the second five with Duane White, Mack Brink, Joe Smith and Kyle Ferrucci following.

Amanda Buchel grabbed the lead at the start of the event for the Stage One Modifieds.

Hamlin, PA- Hamlin Speedway Gets Soaked After One Feature Event
The Hamlin Speedway was once again the focal point of racing activity last evening in the Pocono Mountains as the speedway hosted it's regular divisions and was buffered by the addition of the X'Cel Modified division and the Tour races for the Nationals All Stars and Junior Slingshots.. Once again the Smith Fanily was off and running with some superb heat racing action. Just after the Stage One Modifieds were completed, a heavy downpour came on to the speedway and sent everyone scrambling for cover and safety. The racing action at the 1/5th mile clay-cushioned facility has been over the top with many outstanding driving personalities carving out their own claim to fame in weekly competition for age groups from 8 to 60 plus. The racing will once again take place at the speedway Saturday evening, August 24th, beginning at 6 PM.

The 2019 season is now fourteen weeks old and many special events have been already been completed but the heart of the racing schedule is ongoing and with the rain washing out most of Saturday's feature event, the fans will receive an additional bonus in the upcoming weeks with some additional features being made-up. To recap the action on Saturday Amanda Buchel was smooth and steady as she outlasted the rest of the field with an outstanding start and captured the feature win in the Stage One division for the Hampton RV & Trailer Sales Stage One Modifieds.

Amanda Buchel took over the lead at the start of the event as pole sitter's Tanner VanDohren's car faltered at the start. Buchel wasted no time as she emphasized hitting her marks all around the speedway and built up an a starightaway lead when the checkered flag fell from guest flagger Mike Feltenberger. Joel Price ran in second place for the event with Jeff Hineline scurrying to remain behind him. Anthony Chrobak got a good run going and came in fourth place with Rick Bobby (Joey Amantea) behind him in the new Stage One car out of the Richie Smith Shoppes settling for fifth place. The second five showed Michael Samony in sixth place followed by Adam Buchel, James Costlow, John Bachetti and Mark Evans.

Pearl Jams:

The track was racy from start to finish and Track Promoter Randy Smith continued to work on the speedway as necessary for the activity on the speedway was non-stop but very racy throughout. We counted five grooves on the raceway the drivers utilized to carry out their mission of speed.

Dave Carraghan, and Dylan Hoch captured the heat wins for the All Star Slingshots in the first round while Scott Neary and Jared Silfee were victorious in the second round.. The Junior Slingshot heats went to Aidan Donaldson and Kasey Hufcut in the first round and James Hendricks and RJ Sherman in the second round. The Stage One Modified heats found Tanner VanDohren and Amanda Buchel being victorious. JPA Masonry Wingless heat was claimed by Zack Weisenfluh. Wes Hearn captured the heat win for the Supers. The JPA Masonry Rookie 600 Sprints ran one heat and Jacob Eby was the winner. Korey Inglin captured the heat win for the X'Cel Modifieds.

Flagger Russ Furry was on hand last evening as well but in the grandstands sitting one out as he is still hobbled by some injuries he received while working. Veteran flagger and go to guy Mike Feltenberger filled in for Russ on the stand.
