Brian Montieth raced to his fifth Lincoln Speedway 410 sprint win of the season on Saturday evening.
Montieth collected $3,500 for his 60th career Lincoln triumph.
Montieth started fourth in the nonstop 25-lap feature and took four laps to track down Shiloh’s Landon Myers, who grabbed the lead at the onset from his second starting spot.
From there, Montieth battled lapped traffic as a wholesale war for the second spot developed far behind the leader. Freddie Rahmer, who had started 12th, picked up four spots in the final five laps to garner second at the finish, with Spring Grove’s Tim Glatfelter finishing third. York’s Cory Haas came from the 10th starting spot for fourth, with Myers in fifth.
Rounding out the top 10 were Danny Dietrich, who started 16th, Fawn Grove’s Matt Campbell, Lewisberry’s Kyle Moody, York’s Adam Wilt and Alan Krimes.
Tyler Walton had just taken the lead from Dillsburg’s Chris Frank when the 358 sprint feature was halted by rain on the seventh lap. The race will be completed as part of the Sept. 15 show.
The street stock feature was completely rained out. With no date left to reschedule the race, the purse was divided equally among all drivers.
Wolfe takes rain-delayed win at Port Royal: The rain hit Port Royal Speedway early on Saturday and caused a delay in the program, but all events were completed.
Lucas Wolfe led all 25 laps for the $4,000 410 sprint victory. Wolfe’s win came over Logan Wagner, with Spring Grove’s Greg Hodnett in third. Blane Heimbach and Dillsburg’s Anthony Macri completed the top five.
Rounding out the top 10 were Paul McMahan, Brock Zearfoss, Mike Wagner, Dylan Cisney and Tyler Reeser.
In the World of Outlaws late model event, Mike Marlar started fourth and took the lead on the fifth of 40 laps to score the $10,000 victory. Marlar’s win came over Brandon Sheppard, with Devin Moran, Newberrytown’s Jason Covert and Tyler Erb in the top five.
Bill Powell won the Xtreme stock feature.
Lewisberry's Dellinger shines at BAPS: Lewisberry’s Scott Dellinger claimed his seventh BAPS Motor Speedway super sportsman win of the season in Saturday’s rain-shortened event.
Dellinger became the third different leader of the event when he took the top spot from Frankie Herr on the 12th lap. Just more than a lap later, the rains came and the event was considered complete.
Herr finished second, with Bruce Buckwalter Jr., who led the first eight laps, in third. Todd Leonard and Davey Walsh completed the top five.
Rounding out the top 10 were Chase Gutshall, Jay Fannasy, Scott Grace, Adam Wray and Russ Mitten.
Features for the 305 sprints and Legends racers will be rescheduled for later dates.
Weaver excels at Hagerstown: Justin Weaver won the Mason-Dixon Series limited late model race at Hagerstown Speedway on Saturday, and in the process claimed his third career Hagerstown point title.
Weaver’s win came over Donnie Farling, with Barry Miller, Shaun Jones and Daulton Bigler in the top five.
Jamie Zentmyer won the pure stock event and William Ecton Jr. was the hobby stock winner.
Schatz takes Outlaws triumph: Donny Schatz won Saturday’s World of Outlaws feature at the Red River Valley Speedway in North Dakota.
Schatz’s win came over Hanover’s Jacob Allen, with Kerry Madsen, Greg Wilson and Hanover’s Logan Schuchart in the top five.
Schatz also won on Friday at the River Cities Raceway.
Rainouts: The first two nights of the three-night New York state swing for the All Star sprints were rained out.
Friday’s entire local slate of racing was washed out. Only Selinsgrove lost its entire program on Saturday.
Sunday's Armin Hostetter/Bob Weikert Memorial race for the 410 sprint cars was rained out at Trailway Speedway. Race officials plan to reschedule for a later date.
