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.

Special thanks go out to my good friend Justin Beltrame who did an excellent job in my absence last week both behind the mike and doing the PR stories. Thank you once again my friend.

On the restart, White used some some side speed to slip past D'Agostino and take control of the action. The action that took place behind White and D'Agostino was engaging to say the least.

By: Steve Pados, GA Motorsports Media

The premier racing facility in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania, the Hamlin Speedway, once again showed how to get things done last evening with an exciting show in between rain drops that covered all of the hard work and dedication the Smith Family has placed into the facility. The tremendous racing season thus far in 2019 and the loyal fan base and talented roster of driving stars who converge at the speedway are appreciative of all of the hard work and determination that goes into preparing an exciting and fun-filled evening of racing. 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. Last night some new winners graced victory circle with some smiling faces all around. The racing was completed by 10:33 in the evening.

The 2019 season is eight weeks old and many special events have been already been completed but the heart of the racing schedule is still coming up in the next few weeks. Heading up the headlines for last evening’s show include RJ Sherman, who won the Junior Slingshot event in a wire to wire triumph, New York driving star Taylor Mills, who captured the All Star Slingshot win in great fashion and "Magic Shoes" Mike McLaughlin returning to action to score a big win in the Super Slingshot feature. Dennis Chamberlain won the JPA Masonry Rookie Wingless event and Joseph Smith who won over a quick field in the JPA Masonry Regular 600 Sprint main event. Tanner VanDohren captured the feature in the division for the Hampton RV & Trailer Sales Stage One Modifieds. Travis Fichter won the X-Cel Modified event after early leader of the event Geoff Sutton's machine let him down.

Joesph Smith grabbed the lead at the start of the JPA Masonry event and hustled out to a huge lead over Mack Brink, last week's winner Tyler Lindsay and track champion "The Travelin Man" Mick D'Agostino. The action that took place behind the Smith was engaging to say the least. Every turn and straightaway action was filled with excitement as the track was extremely racy as the drivers were able to race side by side for most of the event. Smith was the leader of the event and hit his marks around the speedway with precision excellence. Smith would claim the win with Brink, Lindsay and D'Agostino giving chase behind him in an exciting run for in second place. Dylan Martin was fifth with Cody Smith close behind him in sixth place. Noah Zielinski, Zack Weisenfluh, Michael Nolf followed the leaders.

In the Super Slinger action, Mike McLaughlin ran away and hid to go on and claim another win at the speedway. "The Fighting Irishman" John Gilroy would finish in the runner-up role and was the fastest car on the track as the laps closed down. Dle Kober would finish third while Allan Kober was fourth and solid Paul Ennes would finish in fifth place with Wes Hearn close behind him and Mark Exeter rounded out the finishers.

In the JPA Masonry Rookie 600 event, after being introduced to the crowd trackside, Dennis Chamblerlain began from a front row starting place and that and a big right foot would be all he needed to collect the gold on this evening. Carmen "Pops" Leggio was second with Tony Parlanti third, Jacob Eby fourth place and Michael Nolf was fifth. Richie Maguire headed up the second five with Kyle Ferrucci, Matt Brown, Rich Maguire, and Cody Powell.

The Amantea Real Estate Junior Slingshot event found RJ Sherman taking no prisoners as he charged forward as the green flag fell. Many battles were forming up behind him and it allowed Sherman to whisk away to another dimension. Aiden Donaldson, Doug Smith, Aiden Elliot and Charlene Benz were all part of the give and take behind Sherman. Kasey Hufcut, Chase Zimmer and Isabella Van Orden followed.

In the All Star Slingshot encounter, Taylor Mills blasted into the lead at the start of the event and held off all of the competition for the win. Shelby McLaughlin, hustled into runner-up honors with the returning Cody Kline residing in third place. Paul Ennes hustled hard to fourth place while Dale Kober was handling fifth place with ease. Wes Hearn continued his steady work for sixth place, with James Benz, Ashley Kober, Brian Smith and CJ Fritz rounding out the top ten.

In the event for the Stage One Modifieds, "TVD" Tanner Van Dohren outhustled Jeff Hineline at the start and left the field in his wake as he went on to win the event. Hineline was second with Anthony "Chops" Chrobak third and himself doing an admirable job in containing those behind him such as Adam Buchel, Amanda Buchel and Evan Civick.

The X-Cel Modifieds returned to action at Hamlin and Travis Fichter showed the field the fast way around the clay. He won a close battle over Kevin VanValkenburg.

Pearl Jams:

The track was racy from start to finish and Track Promoter Randy Smith contnued to work on the speedway as necessary for the activity on the speedway was non-stop throughout. Smith had an over the top track for all of the racing teams with the clay of the speedway so moist it pulled the shoes off of your feet when walking the track surface.
