Hammaker makes last turn pass become first Lincoln repeat winner in 358 sprints

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 6/6/2015 – Danny Dietrich was hearing things at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

And that was good, because it kept his elbows up in a 35-lap feature that paid $7,000 to win and an automatic starting spot in the September 26th Lincoln “Dirt Classic” paying $20,000 to win.

“I don’t how far ahead I was,” said Dietrich after scoring his second Lincoln win of the year and 25th of his career in the Pigeon Hills, “When you get out front there you think you hear people. I thought Stevie was under me in turn four that one lap. I kinda moved down on the straightaway because I thought I heard somebody.”

Second place Stevie Smith, who wasn’t as close as Dietrich thought, got into Dietrich’s dirty air every time he tried to pull close, and settled for the runner-up spot 1.9 seconds behind Sandoe’s Fruit Market/Hickory Run Orchards/Weikert’s Livestock #48.

After gathering points through time trials and qualifiers that saw the early time trailers start at the back of their respective heats, Dietrich (ninth in time trials and winner of his heat) drew the number three pill for the redraw at the front of the feature field.

Polesitter and early-race leader Kyle Moody was nearly collected and did a “360” to keep moving when Brent Marks spun out on turn four of lap six. At the time, Moody had a three-second lead. Just before the caution, Dietrich caught Ott for the runner-up spot.

Moody led the next seven laps before Dietrich slid under him exiting turn two of lap 14. Dietrich led the rest of the way, and Moody did another “360” under green on turn four of lap 14, just before being collected by a spun-out Tim Glatfelter in turn one to end his night.

Ott assumed second for the restart, but Stevie Smith drove around the Bruner’s Service Center for second on lap 22. At the time, Dietrich was 1.53 seconds ahead. Smith did his best to close on the leader, and Dietrich, feeling the pressure, had one close call trying to clear Adam Wilt with only a few laps to go.

“I had to kinda push the issue with Adam,” explained Dietrich, “But I had to get moving. I wasn’t going to drive into him, but I had to press the issue and it worked out for us. Here we are.”

“Stevie’s fast every time he hits the track,” said Dietrich, “It feels good to beat him because his winning percentage is pretty darn good…a lot better than ours. To beat Stevie and Greg and Brian and Aaron…all those guys…it’s just awesome to get a win on the big stage here tonight.”

Ott settled for third, with tenth-starting Brian Montieth coming home fourth. New one-lap track record holder Lucas Wolfe crossed fifth. Sixth through tenth were Greg Hodnett, 12th-starting Alan Krimes, 14th-starting Niki Young, Lance Dewease, and 16th-starting Freddie Rahmer.

Heats for the 410’s were won by Billy Dietrich, Marks, Moody, and Danny Dietrich, with Austin Hogue winning the consolation. Fast time in time trials over the 33-car field was set by Lucas Wolfe with a record-setting one-lap time 12.719 seconds (106.140 MPH). Brent Marks won the “Fans Choice” Dash.

Lincoln Speedway and Central PA “358” Point Series leader Doug Hammaker became the first repeat winner of 2015 in the 20-lap “358” sprint feature. And he did it in dramatic fashion, sliding polesitter and race-long leader Ryan Higgins in heavy lapped traffic on the final two turns to the checkered flag.

Higgins, shooting for his first career win, settled for second, with 11th-starting Kevin Nouse, Cody Fletcher, and Tyler Esh rounding out the top five. Adrian Shaffer, who did a “360” in turn four while racing with Higgins for the lead with six laps to go, lost several spots but came back to finish sixth.

Heats for the 30 358’s were won by Hammaker, Matt Campbell, and John Braim, with Jeff Rohrbaugh winning the consolation.

Next Saturday night, June 13th, the NEW ALL-STAR CIRCUIT OF CHAMPIONS come to take on the Pennsylvania Posse. The 410 Sprints will be joined by the 358 Sprints. In addition, we will be holding York Flooring KIDS BIG WHEEL RACES! Time trials get underway at 7:30 PM, with gates opening at 5:30 PM.
