Point leader Brian Montieth scored his fourth Lincoln Speedway sprint car win of the season Saturday evening, but it wasn't easy.
Montieth took home $3,200 for his win in the 25-lap feature event.
In a program that was delayed 45 minutes by rain, the feature sported three different leaders, a four-car race for the lead and just one caution flag. Montieth started 11th. Brandon Rahmer led the first five laps before yielding the top spot to Gerard McIntyre Jr. on the sixth lap. McIntyre held the lead for a number of laps, with several top cars close behind him. Montieth made a successful bid for the lead on the 19th lap, only to have McIntyre drive back by on lap No. 20. In fact, Montieth slipped to third on that lap, with five cars racing together. A lap later, Montieth was back in front and went on to score the win over York's Adam Wilt. Danny Dietrich finished third, with McIntyre and York's Cory Haas in the top five. Rounding out the top 10 were Jim Siegel, Tyler Ross, Spring Grove's Tim Glatfelter, Dover's Austin Hogue and Robbie Kendall.
Fawn Grove's Matt Campbell scored his first 358 sprint win of the season in the 20-lap feature. Campbell took the lead from York's C.J. Tracy on the ninth lap. Tracy later dropped from contention with a flat tire. Doug Hammaker finished second, with Dillsburg's Brie Hershey in third. York's Jeff Rohrbaugh and Jeff Halligan completed the top five. Rounding out the top 10 were Todd Rittenhouse Jr., Chandler Leiby, York's Brian Allman, Cody Fletcher and Cole Young.
Kurt Zimmerman bested teammate Rick Hulson to win the All American Outlaws feature.
