Open a tribute to Nace


TUSCARORA WRAP: Brian Montieth allowed 21st starter Fred Rahmer to pass him during the mid-stages before passing him back to win the Port Royal Speedway Tuscarora 50 for 410 sprints Saturday night.  

Three of the fastest cars up front were taken out with 11 laps down when Lance Dewease, Stevie Smith and Greg Hodnett crashed with a spun car in the second corner. Smith was the preliminary winner on Friday night. Montieth took home over $12,000 for the 50 victory, which closed the Port season.  

The weekend was full of excessive dust. Car counts were 29 Friday and 32 Saturday. Daryn Pittman won the Labor Day Classic last Monday, while Scott Haus won the late models. Haus won again Friday night.    

OTHER RESULTS: Logan Schuchart won the Lincoln Speedway 358 sprint track title Saturday night, while Chris Shuttlesworth won the feature. There were 40 cars. Phil Walter of McClure finally overcame his bad luck and even a pass by Pat Cannon to win the 358s at Selinsgrove on Saturday. There was 24 cars.  

Jim Yoder got by his son Dylan to win in late models. Jason Schmidt won pro stocks and Rick Bender took roadrunners. Selinsgrove’s Blane Heimbach won the 358 sprint main at Williams Grove on Friday night after tight racing with Chad Trout and Cannon that saw contact. Heimbach is 75 points back of Cannon with one race left in the Selinsgrove points chase. John Smith won sprints at Clinton County on Friday.   

NOTES: Stevie Smith was clocked at the end of the Port Royal backstretch Saturday night going 132 mp. ... The winner’s share of the Port 50/50 on Saturday was over $3,30. ... It was a championship type of weekend for late model racer Jeff Rine. The Danville driver clinched the Bedford Speedway track title Friday and the Selinsgrove crown Saturday.

  • 2010 season in review

    The season is almost over — time for a look back. It was the season Goodyear tires became mandated for 410 sprints. In the end, many drivers faulted them, but some had praise and the outcome in general was better racing for the fans.
