Rahmer claims season's fifth win at Lincoln
Points leader Freddie Rahmer raced to his fifth Lincoln Speedway win of the season on Saturday evening. Rahmer collected $4,000 for his 23rd career 410 sprint car win at the track.
Rahmer started ninth in the 30-lap feature event and began working his way forward as Franklintown’s Brie Hershey grabbed the early lead from the outside front row starting position. Rahmer was third by lap seven, and second on lap 13. One lap later he took the lead from Hershey. Hershey began to fade and would eventually drop from competition on the 26th lap.

Rounding out the top 10 were Riley Emig, Zane Rudisill, Jim Siegel, Brandon Rahmer and Tyler Ross.
