Dillsburg’s Anthony Macri raced to his first win of the season in Saturday’s 25-lap 410 sprint feature at Lincoln Speedway.
Macri collected $3,500 for his third career Lincoln win.
Macri started seventh and worked his way forward as pole-sitter T.J. Stutts led the early laps. Macri edged ahead on the ninth lap, but Stutts was up to the challenge that time, and surged back in front the next lap. Macri again took the lead on the 14th lap and this time it stuck.
Macri went on to score the win over fast-closing Chase Dietz of York. In the end, Macri won over Dietz by .377 seconds. York’s Adam Wilt finished third, with Alan Krimes and Stutts in the top five. Rounding out the top 10 were York’s Cory Haas, Brian Montieth, Dover’s Chad Trout, Jim Siegel and Robbie Kendall.
Just after Macri took the checkered flag, rain again hit the speedway, forcing the postponement of the regular features for the wingless super sportsmen and the 358 sprints.
