Trever Feathers Wins Red Nininger Memorial

By Brett Rose

HAGERSTOWN, MD – Trever Feathers scored the Super Late Model win in the 12th annual Red Nininger Memorial on a hot, summer night at Hagerstown Speedway.

Marvin Winters led the field from the start as a three wide battle ensued for second place between Justin Weaver, Tyler Horst, and Allen Brannon. Weaver settled into second while Winters began to pull away. Feathers got by Brannon and closed in on the group a couple laps later.

Winters saw his advantaged erased as the caution flag flew on Lap 11 for Larry Neiderer, setting up a restart. Once again, Winters pulled away from another three-wide battle for second among Weaver, Horst, and this time Feathers.

Feathers got the best of the group and began his stalk of Winters, making the pass for the lead on the low side of Winters on Lap 17.

From then on, Feathers overpowered the field and a late closing Andy Anderson to pick up his first SLM win of the season at Hagerstown.

Feathers said : “This whole week has been the hardest week of my life. This car was sitting in pieces. It’s brand new, brand new motor…. Let me get this Super done, we’ll go to Hagerstown. I busted my butt all week, me and my guys, and my dad…. In warmups and time trials, we had no brakes. Had brakes in the rear for the heat race, and somewhat had brakes in the feature. This is probably the biggest win my career. Not money wise, but as hard as we worked in the past seven days is unbelievable.”

Winters finished third, while Horst and Weaver completed the top five.

Cody Kershner and Barry Miller shared the front row in the Late Model Sportsman feature, and each driver was looking for their first win of the 2019 season. Miller was able to pull ahead into the lead and maintain his advantage over Kershner for the duration to pick up the feature win.

Finishing third was Scott Palmer, followed by James Lichliter and Devin Frey.

With Lichliter’s fourth place finish, he claimed the 2019 LMS track championship over Palmer by a 65 point margin.

Kevin Thomas picked up his sixth Hobby Stock feature win of the season, and the 2019 track championship. Thomas trailed Billy Ecton,Sr. by 22 points entering the evening and briefly battled him early in the feature event until Brady Daniels made his bid for the lead.

Daniels spun on the tenth lap, bringing out the caution and had to go to the rear. Daniels drove from the rear and back into second place as Ecton, Sr. fell out to mechanical woes. Thomas claimed the title by a scant 10 points.

Jason Sarver, Sam Caravello, and James Speelman rounded out the top five.

After a couple seasons of strong runs, Danny Atherton finally picked up his first career Pure Stock feature win. Atherton battled Rob Nichols for much of the feature event, and pulled away at the halfway point before Nichols began to reel in the leader.

A caution on the fourteenth lap setup a one-lap shootout to the finish, and Atherton was able to withstand the challenge of Nichols to pick up the win.

Trailing Atherton and Nichols at the finish were Dillon Wilson, Bobby Meixsell, and Lane Hessong.

Picking up the LaSalle 602 Crate Modified feature nightcap was Cameron Campbell over Chris Chamberlain, Andy Swope, and Keith Van Horn.

Notes: Weaver set quick time for SLM with a lap of 18.750 seconds on a tricky racing surface following a week after the NTPA Truck & Tractor Pull held on the frontstretch.

Kyle Lee was originally eligible to win the Nininger Challenge available to a driver that could win two or three of the memorial races via his win in the Frank Sagi Tribute, but he was not in competition due to being away on vacation. To be eligible for the bonus, the drivers must attend all three memorial events.

An extra $500 is up for grabs to Feathers if he can win the Tex Shaffer Memorial on August 24.

Hagerstown Speedway would like to thank Glenn Nininger and his family for their support and involvement with this event, along with all of the racers and fans that came out to support this race.

Rahmer Wins Johnny Grum Memorial at Hagerstown

By Brett Rose

HAGERSTOWN, MD – Freddie Rahmer picked up the win in exciting fashion during the third edition of the Johnny Grum Memorial on Thursday night’s seventh round of Pennsylvania Sprint Speedweek at Hagerstown Speedway.

Robbie Kendall and Lucas Wolfe paced the field from the front row, and Kendall beat Wolfe into turn one and off of turn two to take the lead.

Kendall quickly drove his No. 55k into lapped traffic on the sixth circuit before a Lap 7 caution waved for the stopped car of Brandon Rahmer in turn one.

On the restart, Kendall repeated his original start, beating Wolfe and the field again to remain the race leader. At the halfway point, Kendall led Wolfe by a 1.63 second margin and once again was working through lapped traffic while rim-riding the top groove of the Hub City oval.

Just a few laps later, Wolfe worked the bottom groove underneath Kendall to take the lead coming off of turn two on Lap 19. As Wolfe was leading, a four-car battle for second began between the cars of Kendall, Cory Eliason, Danny Dietrich, and Freddie Rahmer.

Rahmer made the best of the battle, settling into second and began his chase of Wolfe on Lap 23, and worked the low groove to pass Wolfe for the lead on Lap 24.

From then, Rahmer looked poised to pull away until a Lap 28 caution waved for the spun car of Brock Zearfoss on the backstretch.

This setup a two-lap dash to the finish, but Rahmer was too strong at the end, and took the checkered flag.

The win for the Salfordville, Pennsylvania driver in his Leffler Energy No.51 was the first of his career at Hagerstown.

“I don’t know how good I was at the end, but it was good enough to hold them off. It’s pretty cool to get my first win at Hagerstown.  I always love coming here. I wish we could race here more. The track flows perfect for Sprint Cars and Late Models. It’s all good racing.”, praised Rahmer in victory lane.

Wolfe held onto second, followed by Eliason, Dietrich, and fifth-place finisher Anthony Macri.

The win put Rahmer into the points lead at the time for the PA Sprint Speedweek championship with two races remaining.

Notes: 22 cars signed into the pit area on the July 4th holiday race. Notably absent was Lance Dewease, whose team elected to take the night off. Dewease’s streak of three consecutive wins at Hagerstown came to an end.

Rico Abreu set quick time with a lap of 15.601 seconds, falling short of Mark Kinser’s pre-weight limit best of 14.945 set back in 1999.

Heats were won by Wolfe, Dietrich, and Kendall.

Kane, Warrenfeltz, & Boozel Score Wins at Hagerstown, Johnson Memorial Postponed

By Brett Rose

HAGERSTOWN, MD – Bruce Kane scored his first Late Model Sportsman win of the season after a wild three-wide battle for the lead with race leader Cody Kershner and Randy Burkholder following the final restart on Lap 16 of the 20 lap feature event.

Kershner wasted no time taking the lead from Taylor Farling on the fourth circuit, and appeared to be in control until a late caution came up, setting up the mad dash to the finish.

On the final restart, Kane pulled ahead of the group, as Burkholder followed and Kershner faded to third over the last few laps. Taylor Farling finished fourth and Chad Myers finished fifth.

Michael Warrenfeltz picked up his third Pure Stock feature win of 2019. Warrenfeltz took the lead on Lap 3, and never looked back over the remaining twelve laps of the 15 lap feature event.

Danny Atherton finished second; Randy Zechman was third, followed by Joshua Bloom and Sam Gallagher respectively to complete the top five.

In support division action, Eric Boozel wired the field to pick up the 10 lap U-Car feature win.

The Eric Johnson Memorial for Hobby Stocks got two laps completed before the rains came in a thunderstorm with plenty of lightning that lit up the skies surrounding Hagerstown Speedway. That race will continue from where it left off on July 6 when the Mason Dixon Shootout Series and the Mid Atlantic Modifieds return.

Brady Daniels was the race leader at the time the feature was halted, and will pace the field for the final 13 laps remaining.

Notes – Ryan Lester set quick time in Hobby Stock time trials with a 23.948 second lap. He was the only driver out of 26 entries that turned a sub-24 second lap.

While awaiting repairs to be completed to his own car from a crash last week, Pure Stock driver Dwayne Snyder was scheduled to drive the borrowed car of Brian Swiger before mechanical woes ended his time behind the wheel of that car during hot laps. Tike Loizos then loaned Snyder his ride for the remainder of the evening.

Kyle Lee Triumphs in Sagi Tribute at Hagerstown

By Brett Rose

HAGERSTOWN, MD – Kyle Lee drove his way to the Super Late Model triumph in the 3rd-annual Frank Sagi Tribute on Sunday evening at Hagerstown Speedway.

Pole sitter Jason Covert and Marvin Winters paced the field from the front row, and Winters powered into the lead in his throwback of Tom Peck’s “Fireball 40”.

A caution for a multi-car pileup quickly negated Winters’ lead, but he was able to maintain his position over Covert following the restart, until he slowed going into turn four on the seventh lap.

Covert inherited the lead following the stoppage for Winters, but another multi-car incident following the restart bunched the field back up.

This time, Covert had Lee to contend with, and on Lap 8, Lee drove underneath the potent No.72 machine for the lead off of turn two.

Lee began to stretch out his lead by a two second margin at the halfway point, and then began navigating traffic on Lap 19. The Mercersburg, Pennsylvania driver maneuvered his No.2t through the back markers to keep Covert at bay and take the checkered flag.

Lee said in his interview: “I was really sad for what happened to Marvin.  I’m not exactly sure what happened, but that put us in a good spot on the next restart with Covert, and we just got lucky. I’m glad he chose the top lane and we were really working on the bottom. He kind of missed going into turn one and two, and that was it, man. The car was really, really good tonight.”

Covert held on to second, fending off a fast-closing Trever Feathers coming from tenth to finish third. Rounding out the top five were Gene Knaub, and Tyler Bare.

Scott Palmer picked up the Late Model Sportsman win after battling Derick Quade for the lead in the closing laps.

Quade led up until Lap 14 when Palmer used the low side off of turn four to take the lead away. Palmer’s lead was quickly negated a lap later when a caution came out for the spun car of Zach Kauffman. On the restart, Quade reclaimed the top spot from Palmer and held it until his car pushed hard into the cushion entering turn two, and Palmer moved back out front with the winning pass with two laps to go on the low side to take the victory.

Following Palmer and Quade at the finish were Barry Miller, Bruce Kane, and Randy Burkholder.

A multi-car melee marred the opening lap shortly after the green flag fell on the frontstretch of the Pure Stock feature event. No drivers were injured.

After a complete restart with the remaining cars, Craig Parrill powered past Danny Atherton up high off of turn two to lead the field, and then quickly had Michael Warrenfeltz in pursuit.

Parrill and Warrnefeltz battled side-by-side for most the feature event, until Warrenfeltz ran into the lapped car of Jeremy Mills, bringing out the final caution with just a couple laps to go.

Parrill led the restart and at the white flag lap, but Warrenfeltz was able to pull alongside the leader halfway down the backstretch, and into the lead going in to turn three over the remaining quarter of a lap to grab the win.

Parrill held off Randy Zechman to keep second, Atherton was fourth, and Joshua Bloom was fifth.

Notes: 29 Super Late Models, 30 Late Model Sportsman, and 22 Pure Stocks came out to race on this Sunday special, along with the fans and many retired drivers from the past converged at Hagerstown Speedway.

Covert set fast time during a timed hot lap session with a best lap of 18.789 seconds.

Longtime fans will recognize the name Tom Peck.  The 66 year-old from McConnellsburg, Pennsylvania former racer was the special guest of honor for the 2019 Frank Sagi Tribute. He was best known for driving the “Flaming Fireball 40”, and was one of the best Super Late Model drivers on dirt before leaving the local scene to go racing in what was known as the NASCAR Busch Grand National series.

A feature winner of 171 races, Peck won 43 of them at Hagerstown along with two track championships in 1980 and 1986. Peck’s final feature win at Hagerstown came on September 5, 1988 before departing the dirt world for NASCAR where he finished fifth in BGN points during the 1990 season. His final race competed in was in 1995.

Logan Wagner made his Super Late Model debut behind the wheel of the Coleman Farms No.72, and had a tough time adapting, but put forth a valiant effort to make the show. He was awarded a provisional where he started 25th, and finished in 19th after falling out of the race.

Harris Scores IMCA Open Wheel Madness Win at Hagerstown

HAGERSTOWN, MD – Jerald Harris picked up the 25 lap IMCA RaceSaver 305 Sprint feature win on Open Wheel Madness night at Hagerstown Speedway on June 15.

The Rockingham, Virginia driver took the lead from Erin Statler off the front row at the start of the race, but a caution flag quickly setup a restart after Lap 1 for the stopped car of Dylan Proctor.

Harris remained in the lead following the restart, until a sixth lap red flag unfurled for the flipped car of Stevie Kenawell in turn one. He climbed out of the car under his own power.

On Lap 7, Dave Grube moved into second, and Ken Duke, Jr. moved into third and began to chase Harris as the lead trio began to break away from the field.

Harris began to navigate lapped traffic at the halfway point, and was never seriously challenged for the lead, as Grube and Duke dueled for the runner-up spot.

Meanwhile, Zach Newlin and Drew Ritchey moved into the top five. They began battling within the top five with Grube and Duke. Ritchey powered in third around Duke in the closing laps, while Harris motored on to victory.

“It was a great track. We set the car up dead loose, we didn’t have enough tire to get the stagger so we adjusted. French Grimes helped me adjust it to get it to run in the top, he pretty much set it up, and I just steered it.”, said Harris in his winner’s interview.

Grube held onto second, Ritchey was third, Duke was fourth, and Newlin was fifth.

Jim Young wired the field from start to finish in the 15 lap 600 Micro Sprint feature. Young held off Mike Thompson and pulled away to almost a three second advantage at the finish.

The race was only interrupted by one caution as Hannah Riser went up in a big plume of smoke entering turn one at the end of the third lap.

Following Young and Thompson at the finish were Travis Keiser, Trent Yoder, and Jayden Wolf.

Chad Myers took the lead away from his brother Cory Myers on the second lap of the 12 lap 270 Micro feature, and led the rest of the way to take the checkered flag.

Cory Myers fell back to third, but battled past Levi Peck on the final lap to reclaim the runner-up position. Peck was third, followed by Zachary Glass, and Brian Marriott completed the top five.

Notes: 29 IMCA RaceSaver Sprints were on hand in the interregional event that once again put on a great show for the fans. Ritchey came from 10th to 3rd, and Jake Frye finished 7th after starting 15th.

The 600 and 270 Micro Sprint winners each thanked Hagerstown Speedway for hosting the divisions and expressed interest in wanting to come back to race in the future.

Hagerstown Speedway will be off next Saturday night, but will be in action on Sunday evening, June 23 for the 3rd annual Frank Sagi Tribute featuring special guest Tom Peck.

Corbin Wins 6th MAM Race of the Season at Hagerstown

By Brett Rose

HAGERSTOWN, MD – Mike Corbin has been finding his way to victory lane often in 2019, and he was able to do it for a sixth time in Mid Atlantic Modifieds competition, this time at Hagerstown Speedway where the Winchester, Virginia driver is no stranger to victory lane.

Corbin drove his Ernie D’s Enterprises No.25 from the seventh spot on the grid into second on the fifth lap, and around race leader Rick Hulson on Lap 6.

Corbin survived a few restarts with Hulson and later Ray Kable in pursuit of his lead, but he was able to withstand the challenges of his competition and claim the 20 lap victory.

“Yeah, this means a lot. Me and my guys worked their tails off this week hoping we’d end up here, and with Lady Luck, here we are.”, said Corbin in his winner’s interview.

Kable, Hulson, Cody Williams, and Brad Kling completed the top five.

Dillon Wilson held off Danny Atherton for all 15 laps of the Pure Stock feature, including a final charge at the checkered flag to take his first win of the season by a car length.

Wilson fought off all challenges for the lead in a race that was only stopped by one caution, for the spun car of Doug Hoffman. Atherton valiantly tried to pass Wilson on the restart, but didn’t have enough to get the lead.

Finishing third was Dwayne Snyder, followed by Mike Desch and Wayne Hawbaker in the top five.

Brady Daniels bounced back from last week’s disqualification for unapproved tires to pick up his second official Hobby Stock win in three weeks. The teenage racer moved into the lead on the third lap, and held off a strong challenge from Kevin Thomas over the remaining twelve laps to secure the victory in the nonstop feature event.

Rounding out the top five were Mike Fuller, Sam Caravello, and Billy Ecton, Jr.

In support division action, Steve Axtell, Jr.  took the checkered flag over a fast closing Matt Wallace in the 15 lap LaSalle Crate Modified feature. Andy Swope, Cameron Campbell, and Scott Daniels were in the top five.

Adam Campbell took the win in the nonstop U-Car feature over Matt Worley, Robbie Carroll, Ryan Peer, and Tim Raup, and picking up the Penn-Mar Vintage racers nightcap was Brett Perigo.
