Campbell collected $4,000 for his third career win at the Adams County track.

Dillsburg’s Chris Arnold grabbed the early lead from his pole starting spot and held the top spot for more than half of the 30-lap feature. Campbell, meanwhile, was working his way forward from the eighth starting spot.

It wasn’t until the 18th lap that Campbell was able to take the top spot away from Arnold. Campbell went on to score the win over seventh-starter Tyler Ross, with Aaron Bollinger coming from 11th for third. Arnold settled for fourth, with New Freedom’s Robbie Kendall in fifth. Austin Bishop (from 11th), York’s Chase Dietz (from 20th), Manchester’s Trey Hivner, Billy Dietrich (from 14th) and Devon Borden (from 21st) completed the top 10.

Travis McClelland won the Legends feature. McClelland charged from the seventh starting spot to take the lead on the second lap. He then had to fend off repeated challenges from Seth Kearchner for the victory. Bob Stough, Chris Transeau and Mike Racine completed the top five.

Marks triumphs at Grove: Friday at Williams Grove Speedway, Brent Marks drove to victory in the All Star-sanctioned Tommy Classic for the 410 sprint cars.

Marks collected $6,000 for his third overall victory of the season.

Marks started from the front row at the Cumberland County track and led the entire 30-lap distance to best Lance Dewease for the victory. Danny Dietrich grabbed third in the closing stages of the race with defending All Star champion Tyler Courtney in fourth and Anthony Macri fifth.

Rounding out the top 10 were Parker Price Miller, Justin Whittall, Hanover’s Dylan Norris, TJ Stutts, and Kyle Reinhardt.

Jackson victorious at BAPS: Tony Jackson proved his adaptability on Saturday at BAPS Motor Speedway in northern York County when he won in the super-sportsman races both with wings and without.

In the winged feature, Jackson battled with two-time season winner Russ Mitten for the win. Jackson led from the third of 25 laps but yielded the top spot to Mitten once on the 23rd lap. He regained the top spot the next lap and led Mitten to the checkered flag. Mitten finished second, followed by Kenny Edkin, Steve Fannasy and Lewisberry’s Scott Dellinger in the top five. Rounding out the top 10 were Jay Fannasy, Timmie Barrick, Matt Ondek, Chase Gutshall and John Edkin.

Using the same car without wings and with some other set-up changes, Jackson came back to win the wingless feature after a battle with Dellinger. This time he took the top spot from Dellinger on the eighth of 25 laps. Dellinger finished second, followed by Steve Wilbur, Erick Walker and Ondek in the top five. 

York’s Sam Rial was the extreme-stock-car winner over Hunter Fulton, York Haven’s Brian Rehbein, York’s Patrick McClane and Johnny Palm.
