Campbell keeps title hopes alive with win in 358 sprints; Dellinger best of super sportsman
ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 9/5/2015 – It’s impossible to describe the last two laps of Saturday’s “410” sprint car feature at Lincoln Speedway. To simplify the shock that left a packed house in awe, Freddie Rahmer came from fourth to first in a wild last lap to score his first career “410” sprint car win, coming on the heels of brother Brandon’s first career win one week earlier.
“I knew I had a shot there, but coming through the last corner, that was a little close,” said Rahmer, “I don’t know why it took so long to get going, but I can’t tell you how bad I wanted this, and it means a lot.” Billy Dietrich started outside of polesitter Tim Wagaman and led all but the last lap.
Freddie Rahmer took second from Wagaman on lap three and chased Dietrich for the next 15 laps. That’s when tenth-starting and 2015 Lawrence Chevrolet track champ Brian Montieth (who claimed the title in warmups) grabbed the runner-up spot from Rahmer with six laps to go. Then enter 11th-starting Danny Dietrich, who was charging through the field and grabbed the third spot from Rahmer with two laps to go. As Montieth, Rahmer, and Danny Dietrich crossed under the white flag, Rahmer was sandwiched between the two in a three-car battle for second in heavy lapped traffic.
