York’s Chase Dietz raced to his second Lincoln Speedway 410 sprint win of the season in Saturday’s 30-lap Barry Skelly Memorial Race.

At Lincoln, Manchester’s Trey Hivner grabbed the early lead in the sprint feature from his outside front-row starting spot. Dietz, who started third, took over the top spot on the seventh lap and then had to fend off a late-race challenge from second-place-finisher Jim Siegel for the victory, which came by less than a second. Devon Borden came from the ninth starting spot for third, with 12th-starter Danny Dietrich in fourth and 15th-starter Alan Krimes, of Dover, in fifth.
