Montieth's $3.500 win was his 56th career Lincoln Speedway win, moving him into a tie with legendary Bobby Abel for fifth spot on the speedway's all-time win list.

Former champion Alan Krimes started from the pole position and appeared to have things in hand. He led the first 24 laps of the feature. Montieth, who started ninth, warmed up the chilly fans with his pass of Krimes coming off the second turn on the final lap.

Krimes settled for second, with York's Cory Haas in third. Lewisberry's Kyle Moody came from mid-pack to secure fourth, with Jim Siegel completing the top five. Rounding out the top 10 were Lucas Wolfe, Dillsburg's Anthony Macri, York's Glenndon Forsythe, Spring Grove's Greg Hodnett and Caleb Helms.

Jeremy Ott raced to his first career Legends car win. Like Montieth, Ott started ninth, but he took the lead from defending champion Mason Chaney on the 12th of 20 laps. Chaney finished second, with Travis Perry, York's Lucas Montogomery and Donnie Leiby in the top five.

Evening racing action at Williams Grove on Friday and Port Royal on Saturday were both canceled because of cold.
