Story By: LINCOLN SPEEDWAY – ABBOTTSTOWN, PA – The first Rack Daddies Rumble title went to Freddie Rahmer.
After Rahmer put on the title belt in victory lane he shared, “That was a tough race. I didn’t have a good start. I lost positions at the beginning and just kept fighting. I don’t know that we were the best car.”
Rahmer lined up eighth for the start of the 30-lap, $5,000 to win feature. Glenndon Forsythe took the lead early in the race with Chad Trout taking over the top spot on lap 6. Trout looked to be running away from the field but two late race cautions allowed Rahmer to close in and eventually take the lead with the white flag waving.
Chase Dietz had also worked his way to the front of the field and was tracking down Trout along with Rahmer, “Just getting Chase there before the last yellow was key. Trout was going pretty good.”
Rahmer was lined up second behind Trout for the final restart of the race, “The last restart I just rolled my wing front. Just figured I’d do what he didn’t do down here.”
Saturday’s win was Rahmer’s fourth of the season at Lincoln and first since June 11th.
A pair of number 5 cars shared the front row for the Rack Daddies Rumble, John Walp and Glenndon Forsythe. Forsythe took the lead in turn 2 from Walp and Mark Smith followed taking second at the line on the first lap. Chad Trout drove to the outside of Walp in turns 1 and 2 to take third. Trout drove by Smith on the back stretch to take second on lap 4.
Trout closed in on Forsythe as Forsythe was blowing smoke out of the car. Trout took the lead on lap 6. Chase Dietz was all over Smith for third and took the spot.
Aaron Bollinger was sitting sideways in turn 4 on lap 8 bringing out the caution.
The top five for the restart were Trout, Forsythe, Dietz, Smith and Rahmer. Trout held the lead with Dietz looking to the outside of Forsythe but could not make the pass. Rahmer drove by Smith for fourth which led to a three-car battle for second.
Dietz slid Forsythe for second on lap 10 and Rahmer followed, taking the spot coming out of turn 4 on lap 11.
Lapped traffic became a factor halfway through the feature at lap 15. At first Rahmer stuck with Dietz as they worked through lapped traffic but Dietz started to pull away from Rahmer on lap 22 as he reeled in Trout.
Trey Hivner spun in turn 4 on lap 22 bringing out the yellow flag.
Dietz looked to the outside of Trout on the restart with Chad holding onto the lead. Rahmer then looked to the outside of Dietz for second and could not make the pass.
Dietz and Rahmer continued to battle for second, which is exactly what Trout needed to pull away from the field. Rahmer took the runner-up spot by half a car length at the line on lap 25.
Tyler Ross and Smith got together in turn 2 as they battled for fourth bringing out the caution on lap 28.
Trout, Rahmer, Dietz, Kyle Moody and Forsythe lined up for a green, white, checkered finish. Rahmer tried the outside on the restart but Trout pulled away coming out of turn 2. Rahmer stuck with him and took the lead at the line as the white flag waved.
Rahmer crossed the line .831 seconds ahead of Trout for the win. Dietz finished third and Moody was fourth. Forsythe rounded out the top five.
Riley Emig was the hard charger, making his way to a 13th place finish after starting 22nd. John Walp was the Lucky Buck award winner after finishing 16th.
Jeff Rohrbaugh Wins 358 Sprint Feature
Eddie Strada started on the pole of the 20-lap 358 Sprint feature on Saturday night. Strada took the lead when the green flag dropped with Hayden Miller on his bumper
Four cars battled for the lead as Jeff Rohrbaugh and Nash Ely split Miller with Rohrbaugh moving into second, Ely third and Miller fourth.
Rohrbaugh took the lead on lap 2 and Ely followed on the following lap, getting by Strada for second.
Ely was closing in on Rohrbaugh with Cody Fletcher not far behind in third. The yellow flag flew on lap 6 when Nat Tuckey was off the pace on the front stretch.
Rohrbaugh led Ely, Fletcher, Strada and Miller to the cone for a single-file restart.
Rohrbaugh had a good restart with Ely opting to run a higher line which allowed him to stick with Rohrbaugh. Points leader, Steve Owings, was working his way to the front from his eighth place starting spot and was running fourth by lap 7.
As Ely and Fletcher battled for second, Rohrbaugh was able to pull away. Once Ely held solidly held second, Fletcher was left to fend off Owings. A fierce battle between Fletcher and Owings ensued as they raced wheel to wheel down the back stretch for third. Fletcher held the spot.
With Fletcher in his rear view, Ely went back to reeling in Rohrbaugh. Owings got by Fletcher and tracked down Ely with five laps to go.
Owings was nearly wheel to wheel at the white flag with Ely for second. Rohrbaugh got to the checkered flag .889 seconds ahead of Owings for his first win of the season. Ely finished third and Fletcher was fourth. Miller crossed the line fifth.
Zachary Cool was the hard charger driving from 21st to 14th and Frankie Herr earned the Lucky Buck award for finishing 11th.
Bobby Beard Dominates
Bobby Beard and Dan Zechman shared the front row for the start of the 20-lap Limited Late Model feature. Zechman had the slight advantage as they raced into turn 1 but Beard took the lead off turn 2. The yellow flag waved before a lap was completed when Ray Ciccarelli, Cameron Benyou, Bruce Kane and Harry Shipe got together in turns 3 and 4.
Beard took the lead on the second start with Travis Mease up to second as Zechman got shuffled back to sixth.
Beard, looking for 10th career win in the division at Lincoln, held a solid lead over Mease as Zechman and Jake Moser raced side by side for third.
Zechman recovered from his rough start and got by Mease for second on lap 6. Wayne Pfeil spun in turn 4 bringing out the caution. The top five for the restart were Beard, Zechman, Moser, Mease and Zach Kauffman.
A four-car battle for fifth between Kauffman, Tommy Slanker, Andrew Yoder and Jed Latshaw was materializing as Beard was out front by himself.
Lapped traffic came into the picture for Beard with five laps to go, right before the yellow flag waved on lap 16 when Kyle Bachman was off the pace and stopped in turn 3.
Beard led Zechman, Moser, Mease and Latshaw to the cone for the late race restart. Moser got under Zechman as they battled for second with Moser taking the spot on lap 17.
Yoder made a late race charge, getting up to fifth on lap 18 and moving into third with one lap to go.
Beard got to the checkered flag 1.765 seconds ahead of Moser for his 10th Lincoln Speedway Limited Late Model win. Yoder crossed the line third and Latshaw was fourth. Zechman completed the top five.
