Danny Dietrich raced to his second Lincoln Speedway 410 sprint-car win of the season Saturday evening.
Dietrich’s 40th career Lincoln win was worth $3,500.
Dietrich started second and led all 25 laps of the feature. In the middle stages of the race, Dietrich was challenged by last week’s winner, Freddie Rahmer, but then Rahmer got busy fending off six-time track champion Brian Montieth, and Dietrich drove away to the win. Rahmer held sway in a four-car battle for second, with Montieth, Alan Krimes and Jim Siegel in the top five.
Rounding out the top 10 were York’s Glenndon Forsythe, Fawn Grove’s Chris Knopp, Spring Grove’s Tim Glatfelter, Scott Fisher and Brandon Rahmer.
Relative newcomer Dave Brown, up from the 305 sprint ranks, won the 358 sprint feature. Brown started second and slipped by pole-sitter Dalton Dietrich of York on the seventh of 20 laps. Brown then had to fend off the advances of Cody Fletcher to score his first 358 sprint-car win.
Fletcher, Dietrich, Manchester’s Trey Hivner and York’s Chase Dietz completed the top five. Rounding out the top 10 were Hanover’s Troy Wagaman Jr., Jeff Halligan, Dillsburg’s Brie Hershey, Hanover’s Kody Hartluab and Kenny Kuhn.
Shaun Jones led all 20 laps of the nonstop limited-late-model feature to score the win over Manchester’s Randy Christine Jr. Wes Bonebrake finished third, with Dover’s Gene Knaub and Devin Frey in the top five.
Smith wins Ray Tilley Classic at Selinsgrove: Mark Smith won the 30-lap Ray Tilley Classic at Selinsgrove Speedway on Sunday evening.
Smith’s 410 sprint-car victory was worth $4,088.
Smith started fifth and took the lead from Gerard McIntyre Jr. on the 11th lap. He then had to fend off a late charge by Freddie Rahmer to win by a half second.
Rahmer settled for second, with T.J. Stutts, Spring Grove’s Greg Hodnett and Lucas Wolfe in the top five. Rounding out the top 10 were Dillsburg’s Anthony Macri, McIntyre, Trey Starks, Coleman Gullick and Michael Walter II.
In the pro-stock feature, Kyle Bachman was the winner over Brandon Moser and Strinestown’s Tommy Slanker.
Zearfoss wins at Port Royal: Brock Zearfoss led all 25 laps at Port Royal Speedway Saturday to score his second win of the weekend.
Zearfoss earned $4,000 for his victory in the 25-lap, 410 sprint-car feature.
Zearfoss started second and got the jump on pole-sitter Hodnett at the start. Hodnett finished second, followed by Wolfe, Logan Wagner, and Dylan Cisney in the top five.
Rounding out the top 10 were Steve Buckwalter, Stutts, McIntyre, Mike Wagner and Macri.
In the 25-lap URC 360 sprint feature, Wolfe was scored the leader of all 25 laps, but that’s not the whole story. He and Smith swapped the lead several times over the closing stages of the race, and Wolfe was ahead at the line by just .004 of a second.
Trey Starks, Hodnett and Zearfoss completed the top five. Rounding out the top 10 were Josh Weller, Ryan Kissinger, Jason Shultz, Eric Parker and Bill Balog.
Kyle Smith won the 305 sprint feature over Jeff Miller. Darren Miller, Christian Rumsey and Dylan Shatzer completed the top five.

Dietz won the 358 sprint feature over Kevin Nouse, with Dillsburg’s Rich Eichelberger in third. Halligan and Matt Findley completed the first five.
