Weiler First Time Winner

Hitzler & Diehl also winners before Rain



There were two races going on Friday night; a race between the cars and the track trying to complete all the racing action. Brie Weiler from Lititz took the first win of her career win in the 125 Micro Sprints while Richie Hitzler (Lebanon) and Bill Diehl (Wrightville)took wins as well in the Earman Fulk Memorial race held in memory of the late race builder.


Brie Weiler started at the tail of the Gutshall Automotive 125 Micro Sprint feature. Weiler worked her way to the front while Dave Grube, Tajae Adams, and Chase Gutshall battle fiercely for the race lead. Adams had just passed Grube for the lead with two to go when Gutshall's car slowed on the home stretch bringing out the yellow. Adams lost his chain under the yellow handing the lead to Dave Grube. Grube, who led much of the race, showed the way with Weiler benefiting from the yellow and restarting second. On the restart Weiler stayed right with Grube and made the last corner pass for the win coming to the checkered flag. It was Weiler's first career win. fellow last row starter Zach Hollinger finished in second with Brianna Gerhart, Brooklyn Shearer, and Adams as the top five. Gutshall, Kelsey Heiner, Austin Graby, and Dave Grube rounded out the field. Adams won the heat race for the 125 Micro Sprints.


The Dayne's Automotive Modifieds went Topless Friday night for their annual race. Richie Hitzler made a quick adjustment to running topless and won both the heat and feature event. Hitzler took the top spot from early race leader Josh Pepe on lap four and drove away. Hitzler won the race by 1.065 seconds over Pepe, Ryan Higgs, Eric Whitby, and Andrew Ace. Chad Zornek recovered from an early race spin to finish sixth, Barry Breidegan did the same to hold down seventh, While aaron Bowes, Joe Cater, and Dylan McCrone came across the line in the top ten. Modified heat race wins went to Hitzler and Michael Burrows.


Scott Houndenshell picked the five pill after winning the heat race for the Central Pa Legend Cars. Bill Diehl was on the other end of lady luck and picked the pole after finishing in the top five of the heat to make the redraw. Diehl was dogged for much of the race by Chris Transeau, but led all the laps and took his first win of the season at the Speedway. Diehl came into the night third in the central Pa Legend point standings. Transeau had his hands full at the end of the race with Clint Penkauskas pressuring for the runner up spot. Transeau would hold of Penkauskas for the spot. Houndenshell came across the line fourth with Rocky Magaro rebounding from a did not finish in the heat race for fifth. Rick Haring, Ed Trump, Rick Hartwig, Austin Bellemare, and Chris McKinney rounded out the top ten finishers.


Feature races for the 270 Micro Sprints and Wingless 600 Micro Sprints were rained out. Rain hit the speedway just after ten as the 270 Micro Sprint main event was taking the green. Make Up dates will be announced as soon as a schedule can be finalized for the remainder of the season. Make up races for the 270 Micro Sprints and Xcel 600 Modifieds are yet to be run from May 29th.
