WEEKEND DIRT-TRACK RACING: Tim Shaffer becomes Lincoln's first repeat 410 winner in 2021
It took seven races, but on Saturday evening, Tim Shaffer became the first repeat 410 sprint winner at Lincoln Speedway this season.
Shaffer collected $4,000 for his third career Lincoln win.
Second-year racer Arron Bollinger grabbed the early race lead from his outside front-row starting spot at the Adams County track. Bollinger was well out front when he entered lapped traffic, which allowed Shaffer and third-place runner, Chase Dietz, of York, to close.
The 23rd of 30 laps decided the fate of the race. Dietz made a bold move around Shaffer in lapped traffic, while at the same time, Bollinger bobbled for an instant on the fourth turn. Dietz and Bollinger’s cars met at the exit of the corner, with both crashing out of the race. The incident turned the lead over to Shaffer, who had started sixth, and he went on to the win.
Spring Grove’s Tim Glatfelter rode home second ahead of Hanover’s Dylan Norris. Freddie Rahmer came from the 15th starting spot for fourth, with Tyler Ross completing the top five. Rounding out the top 10 were Hanover’s Tim Wagaman II, Lewisberry’s Kyle Moody, Shiloh’s Landon Myers, Billy Dietrich and Austin Bishop.
It should be noted that after racing at Port Royal in the late afternoon, Danny Dietrich made it to Lincoln in time for the third heat race. He started 22nd in the feature and was one of six drivers to advance 11 spots, finishing 11th.
Second-year racer Hayden Miller secured his first 358 sprint win, leading all the way in the 20-lap feature. While Miller led the whole distance, he had several challengers — first, veteran Steve Owings and later in the race, fellow second-year racer Zane Rudisill. Rudisill finished second, with Owings, Kody Hartlaub and Cody Fletcher in the top five. Rounding out the top 10 were West York’s Jeff Rohrbaugh, Hanover’s Cody Phillips, York’s Jordan Strickler, Matt Findley and Justin Foster.
Scott Schaeffer won the vintage outlaw feature.
Dillsburg driver wins at Port Royal: Dillsburg’s Anthony Macri raced to his first win of the season in the 25-lap 410 sprint feature at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday.

Danny Dietrich and Jeff Halligan completed the top five. Rounding out the top 10 were Dylan Cisney, Blane Heimbach, A.J. Flick, Jason Shultz and Kerry Madsen.
Alex Bright raced to the victory in the United States Auto Club East Coast wingless 360 sprint feature at the Port. Bright’s win came over defending series champion Steve Drevicki, with Briggs Danner in third. Joey Biasi and Chris Allen Jr. completed the top five. Rounding out the top 10 were Carmen Perigo Jr., Damon Paul, Tommy Kunsman, Ed Aiken and Mike Thompson.
