Matt Cosner’s First Selinsgrove Speedway Win Worth $5,046 In Super Late Model 46er

Story By: STEVE INCH / SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY – SELINSGROVE, PA – Matt Cosner of Ridgeley, W.V., endured a caution-plagued race to score his first career win at Selinsgrove Speedway in Saturday night’s 46-lap Super Late Model 46er commemorating the track’s founding year.

Cosner earned $5,046 for the victory at the wheel of the Line X No. 66 racer. He was also the night’s fast qualifier over the field of 31 entries with a lap time of 18.960.

Devin Hart of Port Royal continued his early season success with his first win of the year at Selinsgrove in the 20-lap limited late model feature, while Jake Jones of Hunlock Creek became the first repeat roadrunner winner of the season in the division’s 12-lap race.

Selinsgrove Speedway is back in action at 7 p.m. Saturday, May 22, with the USAC East Coast Wingless Sprint Cars, Apache Tree Service PASS/IMCA 305 sprint cars, limited late models, and roadrunners on A&A Auto Stores Night. Track gates open at 5 p.m.

Cosner started on the pole in the extra-distance super late model main event and drove a steady race at the front of the pack, but not without several challengers along the way. One-time Selinsgrove winner this season Dan Stone started second and chased Cosner in the early laps until fourth-place starter Brett Schadel advanced to second and showed a lot of speed in a brand-new race car.

Nearing the completion of lap 10, Cosner was leading Schadel, Stone, 11th-place starter Dylan Yoder, and sixth-place starter Max Blair. Through the midway point of the race, a host of drivers see-sawed for the runner-up position behind Cosner, including Schadel, Blair, Stone, and fifth-place starter Jeff Rine.

In the second half of the event, eighth-place starter Colton Flinner took a shot at Cosner as Rine battled back through the pack after having to rejoin on the rear of the field. Eventually Blair retook the runner-up spot and offered the most serious challenges to Cosner for the lead and win.

At the checkered flag, Cosner was victorious by one second over Blair, 15th-place starter Gene Knaub, 18th-place starter Andrew Yoder, and Schadel.

Polesitter Devin Hart led fourth-place starter Dalton Bigler and eighth-place starter Andrew Yoder at the start of the limited late model feature. In an event that went mostly incident-free, Yoder eventually took over the second spot on lap 14 and started to reel in Hart.

Hart maintained the front spot and took the win by 1.5 seconds over A. Yoder, second-place starter Todd Snook, Bigler, and sixth-place starter Travis Mease.

Second`-place starter Nate Romig powered into the lead at the start of the roadrunner feature and was trailed by polesitter Jake Jones for the first three laps until Jones made the winning pass coming off turn four.

In the final laps, Romig made a last-ditch effort to catch Jones to snag the lead and win to no avail. Jones was victorious for the second time in a row over Romig, Smith Cope, Adam Campbell, and Terry Kramer.
