SATURDAY'S DIRT-TRACK RACING: Freddie Rahmer earns $5,000 triumph at Lincoln Speedway
Freddie Rahmer raced to his third Lincoln Speedway 410 sprint win of the season in Saturday’s Brandon Little Memorial Fallen Firefighters Night feature.
Rahmer’s $5,000 win was his fourth overall this season and his 17th career win at the Adams County track.
Hanover’s Tim Wagaman II vaulted from his outside front row starting position to take the lead at the start of the 33-lap feature. Wagaman held the polesitter, Dover’s Alan Krimes, at bay for the first 10 laps before the former track champion was able to wrest away the lead.
Meanwhile, Rahmer was advancing from the eighth starting position and took the lead from Krimes on the 18th lap. Rahmer opened a large advantage that was wiped away when the only caution flag of the race flew with just three laps remaining. Still, Rahmer was able to pull away on the restart to win by 1.368 seconds over Krimes.
Lucas Wolfe finished third, with York’s Cory Haas and Wagaman in the top five. York’s Chase Dietz was the race’s hard charger, advancing from 21st to finish sixth, ahead of T.J. Stutts, Brandon Rahmer, Billy Dietrich and Hanover’s Dylan Norris.
Brett Wanner got his first win of the season in the 20-lap 358 sprint feature. Wanner started third and inherited the lead on the fifth lap when Riley Emig dropped from the event with mechanical problems.
York’s Brett Strickler finished second, with Hanover’s Kody Hartlaub, Hellam’s Adrian Shaffer and Steve Owings in the top five. Rounding out the top 10 were Cody Fletcher, York’s Travis Scott, Tyler Esh, Mason Chaney and hard-charger C.J. Tracy, of York, who started 23rd.
