Jersey Shore’s Jeremy Ohl wins limited late model race at Clinton County
MILL HALL — Jersey Shore’s Jeremy Ohl raced his No. 5 car to victory lane Friday night at the Clinton County Speedway in the limited late model division. It was Ohl’s first win of the season at the 3/8 mile oval. Brandon Moser of Millerstown was the winner of the pro stocks, Jeffrey Weaver won the 270 micro sprints and Scott Englert won the four cylinder feature event.
Kevin Probst of Renovo and Williamsport’s Matt Cochran brought the field of limited late models to the green flag of the 25-lap main event. Cochran led the first lap, with Probst taking the lead on the second circuit. Cochran however battled back to lead lap number three with Probst, Jim Yoder, JR Toner and Ohl in the top five.
With the restart, Cochran continued to lead the field, with Jim Yoder taking the runner up position on lap number seven. Probst and Yoder continued to battle for position with Probst moving back into second on lap number nine. On lap 10, Probst fought his way back into the lead with Cochran, Yoder, Ohl and Dylan Hart in the top five.
In pro stock action, Kris Orwig and Logan Hile led the field to the green flag. Orwig took command of the field and led the opening laps. Johnny Bouse took the runner up position by the completion of lap number three. Two laps later, fifth place starter, Brandon Moser moved into the runner up spot. At the halfway mark, Moser took over the lead with Robert Tressler glued to his back bumper.
Larry Dickey and Matt Dixon started on the front row of the 270 micro sprint feature. Weaver quickly charged to the front and took the lead. The caution waved on lap number three when Steve Fernburg stopped on the speedway. Weaver maintained his lead on the restart and was chased by Shawn Musser, Zachary Glass, Matt Dixon and Tom Quiggle.
At the midway point, Weaver started to distance himself from the second place car of Musser. On lap number 13, the red flag came out for Mitchell Holden who got turned and hit the front stretch wall hard. Holden was transported to the hospital, but was released several hours later with no injuries, but reported that he will be sore for a few days.
Chloe Smith was the pole sitter for the four cylinder main event. She led the first two circuits, until eight place starter Scott Englert made a pass for the lead. By lap number four, Englert led Smith, Chris Small, Coty Maines and Tim Raup. Englert started to encounter lapped traffic by lap number nine.
Raup moved into the third spot on lap number ten. Englert cruised to his first win of the year over Smith, Raup, Small and Blake Snyder. Sixth through tenth were Andrew Rickets, Cody Maines, Donald Wynn, Zack Kline, and Adam Harris.
