(JAMIE BIRD/FOR THE EXPRESS) Blane Heimbach races during a local auto racing event over the weekend.


For The Express

Danny Dietrich was on fire Saturday night, and even an over two-hour rain delay couldn’t dampen his flame. He held off the competition through multiple race restarts and a green, white checkers for his 6th career Port victory. The win was a $3,600 payday over Zearfoss, Steve Buckwalter, George Hobaugh and Cory Haas.

Colton Flinner claimed his second career River Valley Builders Super Late Model victory. Devin Hart had the sweet taste of redemption after being stripped of his win last week for a tech violation in the Limited Late Model Division.

Brad Mitch won the 15-lap Juniata Junction Restaurant Extreme Stock Series feature, his second Selinsgrove Ford Limited Late Model feature win of the season. Meanwhile, the rains also hit the Speedway at Selinsgrove delaying their night, but making the track lightening fast. Ryan Kissinger of Bloomsburg was the winner in the United Racing Club 25-lap 360 sprint car feature. Hayes Mattern of Beavertown won the 25-lap late model feature. Both earned $2,000 for their victories in the third racing event of the season at the track. Pro stock point leader Brandon Moser of Middleburg was the season’s first repeat winner in the division’s 15-lap race, while Will Brunson of Middleburg picked up his first feature win of the year in the 12-lap roadrunner race

Meanwhile down at Lincoln Speedway, Lance Dewease started the night with the second quickest time in time trials. He drew the fourth starting spot, lining him up behind Adam Wilt, Dan Shetler and Chase Dietz for the start of the 33-lap feature. A few yellow flag restarts later and Dewease crossed the line a whopping 4.392 seconds ahead of Siegel to take home the $6,900 check and his second Weldon Sterner Memorial victory. Wilt held on to third with Rahmer finishing fourth. Ryan Smith completed the top five. Jeff Halligan won in the 358 sprint feature. Mason Chaney claimed his first win of the young season in the Cedntral PA Legends feature.

Williams Grove and Clinton County will try again next Friday night and will be giving away the Easter bounty for the kids that had to be cancelled last weekend.

See you at the races!
