For The Express

At Port Royal on Saturday night it was the Living Legends Dream Race for the Weikert’s Livestock Sprint Cars honorong Joey Gravino and Late Model driver Ken Dickson. AJ Flick was victorous earning the $10,000 base pay, plus $2,000 for winning his semi-feature as well. Over $55,000 in purse money was handed out to the Sprint cars, the largest in Pennsylvania for an unsanctioned race.

In the 25-lap main event for the River Valley Builders Super Late

Models, it was point leader Dylan Yoder, of Middleburg, extending his advantage with his third win of the season.

Down at Williams Grove young Freddie Rahmer did it again winning the Billy Kimmel Memorial for 410 sprint cars at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, taking $3,800 for his fourth oval win of the season. Due to a serious accident the 358 feature will be rescheduled at a later date.

At the Bedford speedway, Taylor Farlling completely devastated the limited field on Friday night. It was Farlling’s first victory of the season and came on the track’s annual post Fair five dollar night.

In other action in the Big Six event program, Kyle Weyant snared his first ever Semi Late event. Drake Troutman took the EMod race and Dalton Ritchey was the Pure Stock winner. Ryan Peer began and ended the evening with wins, snagging both the Fair week makeup and also the regularly scheduled 4 Cylinder events.

Ryan Kissinger of Bloomsburg found something in the top groove of the fast and smooth Selinsgrove Speedway Saturday night to win his second 360 sprint car race of the season. Bryan Bernheisel of Lebanon found the fast lane around the top, too, and used it for his first win of the year in the super late model main event. Kissinger earned $2,000 for his fifth career sprint car win at the track behind the wheel of the Sunbury Motors Ford-powered No. 66. For Bernheisel, the $2,500 victory was his ninth career at the Snyder County oval. Middleburg drivers Brandon Moser and Will Brunson won the 15-lap pro stock and 12-lap roadrunner features, respectively.

Down at the Lincoln Speedway Kyle Moody started on the pole and held on to take the checkered flag.

Doug Hammaker earned his 12th career victory in the 358 sprint series. Wes Brown Wins Diz Dean Memorial for the Classic Cars.

While up at the Dog Hollow Speedway, they presented the second annual Terry “Mole” Bassaro Memorial for the Rush Crate Late Models on Sunday, with trophies being presented by Ingram Racing Engines of Kittanning. Feature winners include: Mike Ott of Central City, as he picked up the Mole Bassaro special for the Crate Late Models, Jon Lee of Mahaffey in the Iron Horse Salvage 358 Semi Lates, Brad Benton of Duncansville in the Amsoil Pure Stocks and Jack Theys of South Fork in the D.M. Craig Fabrication and Welding Four Cylinders.

You still have time to catch a flight out to Knoxville, Iowa….“The Sprint Car Capital of the World,” where the Nationals start on Wednesday or wait until next week when I’ll have a full run down of all the action.

See you at the races!
