Andrew Yoder wins at Clinton County Speedway

It was another win for Yoder Nation on Friday at Clinton County Speedway as he earned his 16th win of his career at Clinton.

“We really like racing here,” said Yoder in victory lane. “We had a hard fought battle with Mike Smith, and it was fun. If it wasn’t fun, we wouldn’t be doing this.”

Other winners of the night included AJ Stroup in the Pro Stocks, Timmy Bittner of Beech Creek in the 270s, Trevor Teats in the 600s and Chris Small in the Four Cylinders.

At Hidden Valley Speedway, Gary Little of Clearfield finally got the monkey off his back as he picked up his first semi late feature of the season Saturday. Adam Nixon of Shawville picked up the four-cylinder feature while subbing to claim the bounty on Rob Williams. Repeat winners included Derek Rodkey of Osceola Mills in the super late models, Todd English of Clearfield picked up another small block modified feature to extend the bounty there and Chad Rougeux of Hyde won his second career street stock main.

Freddie Rahmer’s win Saturday was his third of the season at Lincoln Speedway. It was also his third Fallen Firefighters Night victory, which Rahmer touched on in victory lane.

“It’s pretty cool. This is the third one of these Brandon Little races we’ve won. They do a heck of a job promoting. This place was packed when we got here today,” Rahmer said.

He lined up eighth for the start of the 33-lap feature and worked his way to second by lap 13. Rahmer took the lead from Alan Krimes on lap 18 in lapped traffic. The feature ran non-stop until three laps remained.

“We were decent most of the race. After the yellow I don’t think I was that good the last three laps,” said Rahmer, who took home $5,000 for the win.

Brett Wanner earned his first win of 2021 in the 358 sprint car feature.

This Saturday, Lincoln Speedway is back in action with 410 sprints, super sportsman (Tour Series event) and late models (ARCH Night). Racing starts at 7:30 p.m.

Jeff Halligan utilized some timely restarts and took advantage of other drivers bad luck to bring home his first 410 sprint car victory at Port Royal Speedway of 2021.

The win was the second of the young up and coming drivers career at the Juniata County oval and was worth $4,000. Logan Wagner, Dylan Cisney, Jared Esh and Mike Wagner rounded out the top 5.

Austin Berry may still be catching his breath after an absolute barn burner took place in the super late model division. Berry held on for dear life and outlasted Trevor Feathers, Colton Flinner and Gary Stuhler to earn his first career super late model feature win of any kind at Port Royal.

Derek Hauck used a lap-14 pass on Garrett Bard to score his first PASS 305 sprint car victory of the year at Port.

It was a very special night at Hummingbird Speedway as Al Connor was honored with the inaugural running of the Al Connor Memorial. He was a former driver in the track’s first era, capturing a points championship in the novice class in 1968 before moving up to the semi late model division. To honor Connor, a 20-lap, $900-to-win race for the economods and a 33-lap, $1,400-to-win were raced, plus a lap money race for the semi late models.

In the economods, Jeremy Double led all 20 laps en route to capturing the big payday. In the semi late models, Doug Surra led 21 of the 33 laps on his way to earning the $1,400 payout.

The other four divisions were in action as well with two new winners visiting victory lane and two winners adding to their win totals. In the super late models, it was Kyle Knapp capturing his first checkered flag at the Bird this season in his first start. Jim Challingsworth got the job done in the pro stocks. Bryce Swauger notched win No. 2 of the season in the pure stocks. Shawn Hadden also won for the second time in 2021 in the four-cylinders.

Ryan Taylor of Mertztown drove to his first career win at Selinsgrove Speedway in convincing fashion in Saturday night’s Patriot Sprint Tour Joe Whitcomb Memorial for 360 sprint cars.

Taylor’s win in the 25-lap tribute race was worth $2,571, and he became the third different winner in as many 360 sprint car races at the track this season.

Adam Carberry Levittown earned the pole for the start of the sprint car feature by winning $500 in the 10-lap dash for cash in memory of race fan Robert Walter Jr. of Selinsgrove.

Devin Hart of Port Royal powered to his second win of the season at Selinsgrove and eighth overall this year in the 20-lap limited late model main event.

Keith Bissinger of Orangeville held off two-time defending champion Jake Jones of Hunlock Creek for his fourth win of the season in the 12-lap roadrunner race.

Selinsgrove Speedway will be in action two times this coming week with national motorsports events featuring the AMSOIL USAC National sprint car series on Thursday, followed by the World of Outlaws late model series on Saturday, June 19.
