WEEKEND DIRT RACING: Billy Dietrich edges his brother for Lincoln Speedway win
Billy Dietrich raced to his first win of the season in Lincoln Speedway’s 30-lap, 410 sprint feature Saturday.
Dietrich’s third career win in the 410 sprints at the Adams County track makes him the sixth winner in six races there this season. He earned $4,000.
Dietrich started second in the feature and grabbed the lead right from the start. For much of the race he appeared to be home free, but in the end he had some serious challenges from his younger brother, Danny, who pulled along side several times in the closing laps.
In the end, the elder Dietrich topped his brother for the win, with Dover’s Chad Trout crossing third. York’s Chase Dietz and Hanover’s Troy Wagaman Jr. completed the top five. Rounding out the top 10 were Tim Shaffer, Dover’s Alan Krimes, Freddie Rahmer, Fawn Grove’s Matt Campbell and Jim Siegel.
West York’s Jeff Rohrbaugh added to his division-leading career win total with a victory in the 358 sprint 20-lap feature. The veteran driver now has 17 wins in 358 competition at Lincoln.
Rookie driver Riley Emig led the first three laps of the feature with serious pressure from Rohrbaugh before yielding the top spot. Emig would later spin out while running second, turning the position over to York’s Brett Strickler, who would finish there.
Cody Fletcher finished third, with Jon Stewart and York’s Jordan Strickler completing the top five. Rounding out the top 10 were Brett Wanner, Tyler Esh, Kody Hartlaub, Kyle Denmyer and Wyatt Hinkle.
