DICKSON WINS LATE MODEL SPEEDWEEK OPENER AT SELINSGROVE

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – With Saturday’s event at the Hagerstown Speedway getting
rained out, Selinsgrove Speedway hosted the opening race for the Second
Annual CenturyLink Appalachian Mountain Dirt Late Model Series on Sunday
night.

Besting a stellar field of 51 entries, Nick Dickson of Lewistown won $5,000
for his flag-to-flag victory in the 40-lap main event. The win marked the
third of Dickson’s career at the track and his second overall this season.

Dickson became the speedway’s second late model feature winner of the
season, ending Jeff Rine’s winning streak at five. Jamie Lathroum of
Mechanicsville was the night’s fast qualifier with a lap time of 20.562.

At the start of the main event, Dickon powered into the lead from his
second starting position. Fourth-place starter Frankie Plessinger and
polesitter Steve Campbell chased Dickson in the second and third positions.


When the leaders began to encounter slower traffic by the 12th circuit,
Dickson was maintaining a comfortable pace in front of Plessinger,
Campbell, sixth-place starter Rick Eckert, and third-place starter Jeremy
Miller.

The caution flag unfurled on lap 16 when Coleby Frye’s F1 stopped
momentarily in turn four with a front flat tire. On the lap 17 restart,
Eckert powered by Campbell for third on the backstretch and passed
Plessinger for second a lap later. At the halfway point, Eckert was
beginning to reel in Dickson for the lead in traffic and quickly moved
within striking distance.

The field was regrouped on lap 29 when DJ Myers’ car blew a tire while
racing seventh. On the ensuing restart, Dickson was able to distance
himself from Eckert and post a one-second margin of victory over Eckert,
last year’s winner Miller, Plessinger, and Campbell.
