ABBOTTSTOWN, PA – August 5, 2017 – Freddie Rahmer has struggled at Lincoln this year, but he had ‘em covered in scoring his second win of the year in the 25-lap feature for 410 sprint cars in the Pigeon Hills Saturday night.

 

“I just want to win,” said Rahmer upon exiting his Leffler Energy/Miller Brothers Chevrolet/Trans East Equipment #51 in victory lane, “I want more nights like tonight.”

 

Saturday was night number-one of the Lincoln/Susquehanna/Trail-Way tri-track “Shootout,” and a redraw for the front 12 cars placed Rahmer sixth for the start. He drove into the top five by the end of the second lap and passed Chad Trout for fourth a lap later. In the meantime, polesitter Gerard McIntyre, Jr. was leading the field.

 

Rahmer hung in fourth for the next 16 laps while Chase Dietz and Glenndon Forsythe battled for position chasing McIntyre for the race lead.

 

Dietz struck both the turn two and turn four walls several times and slowed on lap 19, just before the red flag waved for a four-car tangle in turns one and two that saw Scott Fisher roll onto his side. Dietz went to the pits during the red and did not return.

 

On the subsequent restart, Rahmer and Montieth lined up second and third, with Forsythe now fourth.

 

That led to a three-car battle for the lead, with Rahmer driving under McIntyre when McIntyre hopped the cushion in turn four of the 19th lap, allowing both Rahmer and Montieth to slip by. A caution flag flew a lap later, as the side panel on the front wing of Montieth became dislodged and landed on the backstretch. McIntyre slid back in front of Montieth on the restart and Montieth wrestled with his ill-handling car. Forsythe reclaimed third from Montieth on lap 23.

 

“They started to get free and I was waiting on lapped traffic,” said Rahmer, “I made my move when I had to on that restart. We’ve been fast at the Grove and on the big tracks, but we’ve struggled here a little. I need to stop worrying about the car and just drive.”

 

Crossing fifth behind Rahmer, McIntyre, Forsythe, and Montieth was ninth-starting Cory Haas, with Jim Siegel, Alan Krimes, Trout, Brandon Rahmer, and Tim Wagaman finishing sixth through tenth.

 

Heats for the 26 “410” Sprinters were won by Tyler Ross, Haas, and Montieth, with Tim Glatfelter winning the consolation.

 

Brent Shearer raced to his first win of the year and second career Lincoln win in the 20-lap “358” sprint car feature. He started sixth and caught polesitter and race-long leader Kody Hartlaub for the top spot on lap 13. He led the rest of the way, with 11th-starting Doug Hammaker coming on strong at the end to finish second. Hartlaub settled for third, followed by point leader Adrian Shaffer and Cody Fletcher.

 

Heats for the 27 “358” Sprinters were won by Todd Gracey, Jordan Givler, and Fletcher, with Steve Wilbur winning the consolation.

 

Charlie Summers was the winner of the 20-lap Dizzy Dean Memorial for Classic Cars. Summers started fourth, grabbed the lead from polesitter and race-long leader Neal Reamer on lap 13, and held Reamer off over the final seven laps.

 

Third through fifth were Wes Brown, Joe Brown, and Ron Grove.

 

Heats for the 12 Classic Racing Series cars were won by Joe Brown and Reamer.
