STEVE STORRIE CLAIMS 305 SPRINT FEATURE; DAN FURMAN WINS 6TH IN STREET STOCKS; ROLAND BROWN CLASSIC CAR WINNER;
ACMS 600 STOCK MICROS TO DREW RITCHEY
Hanover, PA (08/29/14) – No one in attendance, including track officials, knew how he did it.
Brad McClelland wasn't sure himself. But somehow, McClelland squeezed between two cars sitting sideways in turn four of lap 12 to hold onto the lead and go on to claim his seventh win of the year in the 25-lap "358" sprint car feature at Trail-Way Speedway Friday night.
"I can feel for Tony Stewart," said McClelland in victory lane, "I simply didn't see those guys in turn four. I heard 'caution' on the raceceiver, but I didn't see them until the last second."
MECHANICSBURG: Lucas Wolfe has found his way to the frontstretch at Williams Grove Speedway numerous times in 2014. But not when it has mattered most. Wolfe has proven to be the best car in qualifying throughout the season. He's set quick time in local shows and even against the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series regulars. The extra money is nice, but it's also put Wolfe deeper in the field. And in the age of Sprint Car parity, it's stopped him from cashing a first-place check.
Second generation driver also ties dad on all-time Grove win list
Mechanicsburg – Lucas Wolfe wired the field and held off Lance Dewease to claim victory in Friday night's 30-lap, 32nd annual Jack Gunn Memorial for 410 sprint cars, worth $6,000. Wolfe started second in the field and beat polesitter Don Kreitz Jr. to the punch at the start to take the lead. Fourth starter Lance Dewease got by Kreitz for second on the sixth circuit and was trailing Wolfe within striking distance when he began working the backmarkers on the 11th tour.
MECHANICSBURG: Danny Dietrich and Brent Marks won't be going to the casino for a night out anytime soon. Or ever, for that matter.
These two drivers aren't friends. If anything, there is genuine dislike on one or both sides, and that boiled over Friday during the Jack Gunn Memorial at Williams Grove Speedway. Dietrich and Marks were waging a fierce battle during the 30-lap feature. Apparently, it got testy at times before ending with Dietrich hurling a steering wheel at Marks' car during a caution period and a fine.

Five current Outlaws have wins at Skagit Speedway and/or Grays Harbor Raceway
CONCORD, N.C. - Aug. 27, 2014 - The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series moves into Washington State for three nights of racing action that will take the Outlaws from Skagit Speedway to Grays Harbor Raceway. The Outlaws take on the Monster Meltdown at Skagit Speedway on Aug. 29 and 30 where everyone has their sights set on Donny Schatz, a winner at the track last year. Kerry Madsen, Steve Kinser and Joey Saldana all have wins at the 3/10 mile oval, and wins on the season.
The current points leader and five-time champion Schatz also comes into Grays Harbor Raceway on Sept. 1 as the most recent winner at the track. Kraig and Steve Kinser have both notched wins at Elma, Wash. track.
Sprint Car owner Randy Lisi recently had his 62nd birthday. There were gifts, a celebration and a final decision. Lisi is going to retire. For the last 15 years, Lisi has been fielding a car driven by Mike Erdley. The team spent most of that time running a full schedule but in recent years, Lisi and Co. have scaled back to one night a week at Port Royal Speedway.
Racing is an expensive game and in the end, too much money was going out and not enough was coming in.
