Glenndon Forsythe earns $5,000 in the Pigeon Hills

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA (August 19, 2017) - York, Pennsylvania’s Glenndon Forsythe held off some of the best in the business on Saturday night in the Pigeon Hills, ultimately scoring a first-ever Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions victory in front of a packed house at the “Fabulous” Lincoln Speedway. Moving into the top spot for the first time on lap two, Forsythe led 29 of the 30 circuits to score his $5,000 payday, crossing by the flagstand for the final time with Chad Kemenah and Cory Haas in tow.

“I couldn’t be happier for this team right now,” Glenndon Forsythe said in victory lane. “Tonight was Dynatech Controls Night and they had their company picnic out in the parking lot before the races. Mark, the owner of the company, was here tonight and it was his first time so I’m glad to get this done for him.”

A pair of York natives, Cory Haas and Glenndon Forsythe, led the field to green on Saturday night at the “Fabulous” Lincoln Speedway. Haas got the early jump, soon overtaken by Forsythe as the pair raced through turns one and two on the following lap. Despite a pair of cautions during the first six circuits, Forsythe was able to maintain his command and stretch his advantage to nearly two seconds during certain segments of the first 15 laps.

Forsythe reached traffic for the first time just before the halfway point of the 30-lap main event, continuing to ring the topside of the speedway with Haas following less than one second behind. Danny Dietrich soon entered the picture after charging forward from ninth on the grid. The nearby Gettysburg native moved into third on lap 16, just before caution flags reappeared on lap 17 for Arctic Cat All Star Rookie of the Year contender, Tyler Esh. Esh, who started fourth, raced his way into third by lap seven, but during his later battle with Dietrich in traffic, lost the handle and ended his night upside-down in turn one. Esh walked away unharmed.

Green flag conditions returned to the speedway once again with Forsythe immediately returning to a commanding lead, extending his advantage to nearly two seconds by lap 24 over Haas and “Double-D” Danny Dietrich. Traffic came back into play on lap 25 setting up a three-car battle between Forsythe, Haas and Dietrich. As lapped traffic intensified, so did the battle for the lead. Forsythe continued to pound the cushion leaving the bottom open for Haas and Dietrich, soon joined by defending Arctic Cat All Star champion, Chad Kemenah.

Just as Forsythe took the white flag, caution flags appeared once again, this time setting up a green-white-checkered restart attempt. The first attempt failed as Danny Dietrich spun between turns one and two. The second green-white-checkered restart was a success for Glenndon Forsythe, holding back a final corner lunge by Chad Kemenah and Cory Haas.

“I looked up at the scoreboard at one point and saw that the ‘48’ and the ‘39’ were up there. The ‘39’ was up there the whole time, so I knew he wasn’t a slouch,” Forsythe explained. “To be honest, I was happy to see that yellow come out with just a few laps remaining. Traffic was getting intense and I was starting to fall out of the seat. But this is Lincoln; if you get going well, you’re going to hit traffic. That yellow gave me the break that I needed.”

A visit to Susquehanna Speedway near York Haven on Sunday, August 20, will conclude the Arctic Cat All Star swing through The Keystone State. Honoring the late Justin Snyder, Tony Stewart’s All Stars will take part in the Salute to the Troops program during their visit to the 4/10-mile oval, awarding a $5,000 top prize, as well as $500 to the evening’s fastest qualifier on behalf of Emory Transmissions, and $200 to the evening’s main event hard charger on behalf of Brown & Miller Racing Solutions.

Susquehanna Speedway will open pit gates at 4:30pm on Sunday, August 20. A mandatory drivers meeting will be held at 5:45pm, followed by hot laps at 6:15pm, sharp. Those seeking additional news and notes should visit the speedway live on the Web at www.susquehannaspeedway.net.

Back to Posse Country; All Stars set for four events in four days across Pennsylvania (Rick Rarer Photo)



Back to Posse Country; All Stars set for four events in four days across Pennsylvania

INDIANAPOLIS, IN (August 16, 2017) - After a two-week intermission to allow teams the opportunity to enter the 57th Annual 5-hour ENERGY Knoxville Nationals presented by Casey’s General Stores, the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions will return to competition with a four-race stretch through The Keystone State, rejoining the notorious Pennsylvania Posse for four consecutive events from Thursday, August 17, to Sunday, August 20.

The Central Pennsylvania invasion will kick off officially on Thursday evening, August 17, with the third annual Thunder Cup at the Grandview Speedway in Bechtelsville, Pennsylvania. The $5,000-to-win, Thunder on the Hill Racing Series program will feature the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions for the first and only time in 2017; the first visit since Dale Blaney tamed the 1/3-mile, high banked oval on August 18, 2016. In addition, Tony Stewart and Rico Abreu will each be on hand Thursday evening and entered for competition.

Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, will host the traveling Arctic Cat All Stars on Friday, August 18. The 35th annual Jack Gunn Memorial will highlight competition at the world-famous half-mile; the 32nd appearance by “America’s Series” since first making tracks in 1970. Williams Grove Speedway last hosted the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions on April 28 with Lance Dewease earning the big payday, bettering all 45 cars in attendance.

Action will move to the “Fabulous” Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown on Saturday, August 19. Much like Grandview, Lincoln Speedway will only host the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions on one occasion in 2017. The last time the Tony Stewart-owned organization invaded the Pigeon Hills, it was “Double-D” Danny Dietrich scoring the victory, beating Alan Krimes and Lucas Wolfe to the final checkers. Dietrich is the most recent winner during Arctic Cat All Star action, scoring $7,000 at Lebanon Valley Speedway in West Lebanon, New York, just before the Knoxville Nationals break.

A visit to Susquehanna Speedway near York Haven on Sunday, August 20, will conclude the Arctic Cat All Star swing through The Keystone State. Unlike the three events prior, Susquehanna Speedway has not hosted an Arctic Cat All Star event since 1991.

Honoring the late Justin Snyder, Tony Stewart’s All Stars will take part in the Salute to the Troops program during their visit to Susquehanna, awarding a $5,000 top prize, as well as $500 to the evening’s fastest qualifier on behalf of Emory Transmissions, and $200 to the evening’s main event hard charger on behalf of Brown & Miller Racing Solutions.

Alvada, Ohio’s Chad Kemenah will lead the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions charge into Central Pennsylvania as the current Series point leader. The five-time and defending Series champion sits on top of the title chase with a 290-point advantage, also leading all full-time competitors with three victories on the season, as well as 25 top-ten finishes in 30 main event starts.

The “Kunkletown Kid” Ryan Smith, a former regular in Central Pennsylvania before joining the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions full-time in 2015, and again in 2017, will enter the weekend second in the championship chase. Smith recently captured his first Arctic Cat All Star victory of the season at Outlaw Speedway in Dundee, New York, on Friday, July 28.

New Castle, Indiana’s Caleb Armstrong, a recent $15,000 winner during the inaugural Great Lakes Dirt Nationals at Mansfield (OH) Motor Speedway, will enter Pennsylvania third in the Arctic Cat All Star standings, followed by leading rookie contender, “Mad Max” Stambaugh, and Caleb Helms.

Grandview Speedway will open pit gates at 2:30pm on Thursday, August 17. The Arctic Cat All Star drivers meeting is scheduled to begin at 6:00pm, followed by hot laps at 6:45pm. Those seeking additional news and notes should visit Thunder on the Hill Racing Series live on the Web at www.tothracing.com.

LARSON WOWS HUGE CROWD WITH “BAD ASS WIN” IN PENNSYLVANIA SPEEDWEEK SHOW AT LINCOLN SPEEDWAY;
Steve Wilbur claims first sprint car win in 358s, becomes 11th winner in 12 races so far this year

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA – July 3, 2017 – NASCAR Monster Energy points leader Kyle Larson made it official in Monday night’s Pennsylvania Speedweek show at Lincoln Speedway. There is NOTHING he can’t do in a race car.

“I’ve now won in Central PA! This is bad ass!!” exclaimed Larson following a wing dance in victory lane, “Last night (at Path Valley) was my style of track and tonight wasn’t, so this is awesome to get the win in front of a huge crowd here. I thank all of you for coming out.”

Time trials and a four-car inversion for the feature placed NASCAR stars Kasey Kahne and Larson beside each other on row five for the start. Larson quickly went to the top and to the front, advancing to fourth by the end of the third lap.
He caught Trey Starks for third a lap later, took second from third-starting Alan Krimes on lap six, and then made his race-winning move around polesitter and race-long leader Lucas Wolfe.

“I couldn’t believe the top was that good. I’ve watched so many videos of Krimes here cruising around the bottom, so I knew I was going to have move down eventually,” said Larson, “I wasn’t very good down there, and I could hear him right behind me. I had to make sure I didn’t miss my marks too bad and slip up off the bottom for him to get underneath me.”

Krimes, who pressured Larson over the second half of the race after catching Wolfe for second on lap 14, settled for second, .34-seconds behind the winner. Third through fifth were outside front row starter Dale Blaney, Wolfe, and Starks. Sixth through tenth were 13th-starting Danny Dietrich, PA Speedweek points leader Freddie Rahmer (who came from 17th), Tim Glatfelter, Gerard McIntyre, Jr., and 19th-starting Cory Haas.

“It’s been a heck of-a-year for me. Every time I get on the track on Sundays I feel like I have a shot to win. This is five winged sprint car wins in a row. And especially a win here at Lincoln. This is a tough place. They kicked my butt here the couple times I’ve been here. I’m really excited to win for all you fans.”

“I wish we could go full-time racing, but Sundays kinda take up my time,” quipped Larson, “Someday we’ll do this again full time and I’m looking forward to it!”

Heats for the sprints were won by Starks, Wolfe, Brian Montieth (who spun out while running fifth on lap 17 of the feature and was scored 24th), Glatfelter, with Ryan Smith (subbing for Doug Esh in the Mark Coldren #07) winning the B-Main.

Fast time in time trials was set by TJ Stutts over the 42-car field with a one-lap time of 13.684-seconds (98.655 MPH).
Steve Wilbur started on the front row and led every lap for his first Lincoln “358”sprint car win. He became the 11th different winner in 12 races in the Pigeon Hills this year.

Ryan Higgins and C.J. Tracy ran second and third the entire way, with Jeff Halligan and Doug Hammaker completing the top five. Brie Hershey slowed to a stop on the backstretch while running fourth on lap 11.

Heats for the 31 358 Sprints were won by Trey Hivner, Kyle Abrahims, Wilbur, and Troy Wagaman, Jr., with Phil Walter winning the consolation.

Lincoln Speedway is back in action this Saturday, July 8, 2017, with a “K1 RaceGear Sprint Summer Series” event for the 358 sprint cars. Also on the schedule are the 600 Xcel Modifieds and All-American Outlaws. Gates will open at 5:30 PM, with racing scheduled to begin at 7:30 PM.

DANNY DIETRICH HOLDS OFF DEWEASE AND ABREU FOR LINCOLN PENNSYLVANIA SPEEDWEEK WIN;
Mason Chaney winner of Central PA Legends feature

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA – July 1, 2017 – Danny Dietrich continued to impress in Saturday night’s Pennsylvania Speedweek show at Lincoln Speedway, claiming the $7,000 to prize in the 18th Annual Kevin Gobrecht Memorial for 410 sprint cars.

Time trials, qualifying, and an inversion of “6” for the feature placed Dietrich alongside Freddie Rahmer on the outside of of row two for the start.

Outside front row starter Trey Starks led the first ten laps before polesitter Rico Abreu took over on lap 11. Dietrich charged by both Starks and Abreu for the lead on lap 12. Though he led the rest of the way in the non-stop 30 lap feature, he had to deal with a closing Lance Dewease over the final eight laps. Dewease, who started sixth, moved into second with eight laps to go, and actually pulled inside Dietrich in heavy lapped traffic on turns three and four of lap 24. But Dietrich shut the door exiting the turn and pulled away to a .75-second victory at the end, his second win in a row, sixth Lincoln win of the year, and 37th of his career in the Pigeon Hills.

“That was pretty good show,” said Dietrich in victory lane after completing the 30-lap event in eight minutes, 10.303 seconds, “I wasn’t really good there at the end. I thought Lance was definitely going to catch me. I think I saw him one time. I started to play defense. I don’t like playing defense, but I’m glad to be standing here.”

“Hats off to this crew back here…Tony, Jake, Jordan, and Tyler…they bust their butts all week long,” continued Dietrich, “I wasn’t in the shop much with other things going on, and it feels good to be standing here again. I’m not sure I had a fast car at the end. We have to get working on the end of the race a little bit.”

Dewease settled for second, with Abreu, James McFadden, and Speedweek point leader Freddie Rahmer rounding out the top five. Sixth through tenth were 11th-starting Alan Krimes, 13th-starting Brandon Rahmer, Lucas Wolfe, Matt Campbell, and Starks.

Heats for the sprints were won by Dewease, Starks, Abreu, and Greg Hodnett, with Chad Trout winning the B-Main. Fast time in time trials was set by Dewease over the 42-car field with a one-lap time of 13.468-seconds (100.238 MPH).

Mason Chaney held off Lucas Montgomery by a half car-length to score his second career Lincoln win in the 20-lap Central PA Legends feature. Chaney started third and grabbed the lead from polesitter and race-long leader Chris Transeau on lap three. He led the rest of the way despite heavy late-race pressure from Montgomery, crossing .19 seconds ahead of Montgomery at the finish.
Third through fifth were Hayden Pascoe, Transeau, and Travis Perry.

Heats for the 31 Central PA Legends were won by Transeau, Perry, and Chaney, with Scott Haudeshell winning the consolation.

Lincoln Speedway is back in action this Monday night, July 3rd, with night 4 of the scheduled Speedweek series. Night 4 of the series will have the 410 sprinters going after the $5,000 winner’s check. The 358 Sprinters will round out the evening’s action. Gates will open at 5:30 PM, with time trials scheduled to begin at 7:30 PM.

AMSOIL USAC NON WING SPRINTS

THOMAS “T-MEZ” MESERAULL POCKETS $6,000 IN LINCOLN SPEEDWAY AMSOIL USAC EASTERN STORM

Abbottstown, PA June 14, 2017 . . .“This 27 car was on fire tonight”, commented feature winner Thomas “T-Mez” Meseraull in the Lincoln Speedway victory lane Wednesday night. This was the second race of the 2017 Amsoil USAC Non-Wing Eastern Storm and “T-Mez” out-classed the twenty-eight car field. “Special thanks to Gene Franckowiak, Sean Michael and the entire Heffner team for this great car tonight and it’s exciting to win here in Pennsylvania”, said a joyful Meseraull who made the trip from his hometown of San Jose, California. In the 20 lap 358 Sprint feature, Brie Hershey took the win leading wire-to-wire over a challenging Adrian Shaffer.

The USAC Amsoil non-wing sprints saw Justin Grant set fast time, stopping the clock with a time of 15.847. Shane Golobic, Chris Windom and Aaron Farney were heat race winners as Robert Ballou took the win the B Main.

At the start of the feature, Jarett Andretti set the pace for the first five circuits but all eyes were on Thomas “T-Mez” Meseraull. By lap seven, “T-Mez” was the new leader. A caution on lap eight brought the field together for the final time, as the race go non-stop to the checker flag.

On the restart, “T-Mez” ran to hide from the rest of the field, leaving Andretti and Chad Boespflug to battle for second. By the halfway mark, “T’Mez” had check out with Andretti and Boespflug still in a battle for second followed by Kevin Thomas Jr and Chris Windom.

“T-Mez” was just awesome threading his way through lapped traffic. The battle for second continued but now Kevin Thomas was racing in third by lap seventeen.

Thomas pulled a few slide-jobs on Andretti but with each attempt, Andretti held on to the runner-up spot.

With the checker flag waiving, T-Mez was all alone to collect the $6,000 first place prize money in the 30 lap feature. Andretti finished second followed by Kevin Thomas Jr., Chad Boespflug and Chris Windom.

A field of twenty-eight 358 Sprints competed in heat race qualifying events with victories going to Phil Walter, Adrian Shaffer and Doug Hammaker as Todd Rittenhouse took the win in the B Main.

In the twenty lap 358 Sprint feature Brie Hersey immediately took the lead from her front row starting position. Hershey immediately had to deal with a challenging Adrian Shaffer with Ashley Cappetta making up the top three. Phil Walter was working his way to the front racing in third by lap five.

Hershey ran a flawless race shaking off a determined Shaffer with each lap. At halfway the top five remained unchanged with countless shuffling for positions taking place in the middle of the field. Shaffer again began to reel in the leader but Hershey was not about to hand over the lead. Meanwhile, Phil Walter was closing in on the leaders and now Brent Shearer was in the hunt.

Through the closing laps, Hershey ran a flawless race to earn the $1,000 first place prize followed by Adrian Shaffer, Phil Walter, Brent Shearer and Ashley Cappetta.

THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES

‘DOUBLE-D’ DANNY DIETRICH ENTERS USAC NON-WING EASTERN STORM, SERIES OPENS AT GRANDVIEW ON TUESDAY, JUNE 13

BECHTELSVILLE, PA (MARCH 19, 2017) – 410 Sprint Car ace, Danny Dietrich has thrown his name into the hat of local competitors that will ‘Chase the Storm’ when the USAC National Wingless Sprint Car Championship Eastern Storm rolls into town for a week of ultra-exciting racing action, beginning on Tuesday, June 13 at Grandview Speedway.

Dietrich will strap into the Tom Buch-owned/APEX/DKW Transport No. 13 machine for action at Grandview Speedway (June 13), Lincoln Speedway (June 14), Williams Grove Speedway (June 15), and Port Royal Speedway (June 17) before the team heads west to compete with the All-Star Circuit of Champions at Waynesfield Raceway (June 18).

“Tom has given me a great opportunity to run these wingless races and I’m looking forward to going out and trying something different,” Dietrich explained. “It’s going to be tough because we’re out of our element, but I think I can adapt and I believe we have a chance of winning at any of these tracks.”

‘Double-D’ certainly isn’t a stranger to victory lane in Central Pennsylvania, having claimed winged 410 victories at Lincoln, Williams Grove, and Port Royal Speedway in the 2016 season – including the $25,000 Williams Grove National Open victory against the World of Outlaws. Dietrich first found victory lane at the Berks County Grandview Speedway in the inaugural Thunder Cup event in 2015.

But all bets are off with this being Dietrich’s first foray into wingless Sprint Car racing.

“With a wing on we’re used to running really hard on entry,” the 28-year-old racer explained. “I think there’s going to be a learning curve, but this is going to make me a more versatile racer.”

“Danny Dietrich is one of the sport’s most popular racers on and off the race track,” Bob Miller co-promoter of the USAC events at Grandview Speedway and Lincoln Speedway stated. “Having someone of his caliber compete against the USAC drivers adds another layer to the excitement of the Eastern Storm.”

The leanest and meanest racers from USAC’s AMSOIL National Sprint Car Series – the nation’s largest group of non-wing open-wheel racers – make their annual stop on the east coast for a five-race series touring through Central Pennsylvania.

The 11th year of the ‘Eastern Storm’ kicks off on Tuesday, June 13 at Grandview Speedway; followed by Lincoln Speedway on Wednesday, June 14; Williams Grove Speedway on Thursday, June 15; Port Royal Speedway on Saturday, June 17; and rounding out the series on Sunday, June 18 at Susquehanna Speedway.

“Double-D” Danny Dietrich Cruises to Lincoln Speedway Victory Lane for Second All Star Win of 2016,
Four-Race Weekend Swing Concludes Sunday Night at Lebanon Valley Speedway

.

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA (August 20, 2016) - “Double-D” Danny Dietrich used traffic to his advantage on Saturday night at Lincoln Speedway, cruising on to score his second Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions feature prize of 2016. The Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, native dominated the final 13 circuits of the 30-lap feature program, crossing under the final checkers nearly three seconds ahead of second place finisher Alan Krimes. Lucas Wolf would round out the podium finishers, completing a podium sweep for the “Pennsylvania Posse” in the Pigeon Hills.

“Man, it feels really good to be back at Lincoln Speedway,” Danny Dietrich explained, pilot of the Gary Kauffman Racing, Sandoe’s Fuit Marks, Weikert’s Livestock, No. 48. “It feels like we haven’t been here in so long, but I think we have something figured out now. I can’t thank my guys enough; Jake, Cody, Tyler - they all work hard and keep me going in the right direction. All of my major sponsors make all of this possible, also. This car was good all night long. We went back to some older notes and mixed them up with some other stuff and it all worked out.”

A pair of “Pennsylvania Posse” competitors, Lucas Wolfe and Danny Dietrich, led the 26 feature starters to green at the “Fabulous” Lincoln Speedway on Saturday night. Wolfe took command during the initial start, officially leading the first circuit ahead of Danny Dietrich, Alan Krimes, Dale Blaney, and Freddie Rahmer. Those five competitors would race in that order until the main event’s first and only caution flew on lap four, halting action for a four-car tangle in turn one.

Green flag conditions would resume with Lucas Wolfe returning to his position at the front of the field. The Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, native raced ahead of Danny Dietrich and Alan Krimes for the next several circuits, approaching lapped traffic for the first time with 12 laps recorded. Traffic allowed Dietrich and Krimes to close the gap, ultimately creating a three-car battle nearly nose-to-tail.

By lap 17, Danny Dietrich was able to work his way under Lucas Wolfe during their battle in traffic, officially leading the lap with Wolfe and Krimes still in tow. Almost immediately, Dietrich opened his advantage, navigating traffic using both grooves of the Lincoln Speedway surface. No challenges would arise for Dietrich during the closing circuits, crossing under the final checkers nearly three seconds ahead of Alan Krimes and Lucas Wolfe. Krimes, who started on the outside of the second row, raced his way to second on lap 20.

“I was just kinda working some different lines there the first part of the race. I was pretty tight during the first half, so I knew the car would eventually come to me,” Dietrich said. “I just tried to stick with Lucas (Wolfe) the best that I could at the beginning. I played my cards out right and was able to use lapped traffic to my advantage a little bit. That’s what we have to do to win these races.”

Following the “Pennsylvania Posse” podium sweep was Dale Blaney and Freddie Rahmer. Blaney’s top-five finish was solid enough to put the defending Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions titlist back on top in the 2016 championship chase, now holding a four point advantage over Chad Kemenah. Kemenah entered Lincoln Speedway as the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions point leader.

For the first time in series history, the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions will venture north and visit areas of West Lebanon, New York, set to tackle the high-banked half-mile of Lebanon Valley Speedway. The Upstate New York visit will conclude a four-race campaign through Central Pennsylvania and New York for Tony Stewart’s Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions, all starting at the Grandview Speedway in Bechtelsville, Pennsylvania, on Thursday night, August 18.

Lebanon Valley Speedway in West Lebanon, New York, will open pit gates at 3:00 pm on Sunday, August 21. The mandatory drivers meeting will be conducted at 5:30 with hot laps to follow at 6:15.

About the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions:
All Star Enterprises, LLC, wholly owned by Tony Stewart, d/b/a the All Star Circuit of Champions, is a winged sprint car series. The All-Star Circuit of Champions Sprint Car Series is one of the oldest traveling 410 sprint car organizations and is a staple of grassroots, open-wheel racing.

Guy Webb then purchased the series from Emick in the summer of 2002 and served as the series President for the next 12 years. Motorsports entrepreneur Tony Stewart agreed to terms with Guy Webb to become the sole owner of the original winged sprint car tour in January of 2015.
