Story By: LINCOLN SPEEDWAY – ABBOTTSTOWN, PA – The winningest 410 sprint car driver in the country, Anthony Macri, won the Kevin Gobrecht Memorial presented by Drydene at Lincoln on Saturday as part of PA Sprint Speedweek. Macri’s win was his second in two nights as he took the Speedweek opener on Friday at Williams Grove Speedway.
Macri set quick time over the 47-car field with a lap of 13.285 seconds. After qualifying for the 30-lap feature through his heat, Macri drew the pole for the feature, “I knew starting on the pole we’d have to start with a pretty good pace and I’d have to be pretty aggressive in lapped traffic.”
When you’re the hottest driver in the country the spotlight shines bright on your successes and failures brining both positive and negative attention. Victory lane was lively after Macri’s win, “That’s win number 14 on the year. We’ll let our success do the talking and continue on to the rest of the week.” With his win, Macri currently sits atop the overall Speedweek point standings.
Night #2 of Pennsylvania Sprint Speedweek saw Anthony Macri draw the pole for the second night in a row. Troy Wagaman, on a streak of three top-3 finishes started on the outside of the front row for the $9,200 to win Kevin Gobrecht Memorial presented by Drydene.
Macri led the field into turn 1 with Freddie Rahmer moving into second sending Wagaman to third. Justin Peck, Chase Dietz and Jeff Halligan raced three-wide for fourth with Peck taking the spot. The yellow flag came out on lap 2 when Landon Myers got sideways and collected Justin Whittall and Alan Krimes in turn 2.
