HAMMAKER COMES FROM 19TH TO WIN NOUSE SIGNS & GRAPHICS SERIES EVENT AT LINCOLN



ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 7/2/2016 –Social media discord and a family feud may have been among the things that inspired Doug Hammaker to score his second Lincoln win of the year in the second leg of the Nouse Signs & Graphics 358 Summer Series event on Saturday night.

“I won the Nouse series without a win last year, and I wanted one of those (tiki warrior) trophies,” said Hammaker upon exiting his Heavy Equipment Loaders & Parts #66 in victory lane, “I’ve been getting bashed pretty hard on social media that I can’t pass cars clean. I just came from 19th and I don’t think I hit anybody. Coming back from that far, you have to tip-toe, but I got my mind set.”

“We don’t run this car a lot, continued Hammaker, “Last night at Trail-Way we hurt the motor in the red car, so we changed the car around at 1:00 this afternoon. The old man ain’t here, so I kinda set it up myself…so I might have bragging rights this week.

“Dad had a family altercation today at the shop, and he decided he wasn’t coming tonight,” said Hammaker when pressed about Dale’s absence, “Hopefully, he got the grumpy pants off and got his happy face on now.”

A tenth-lap crash involving the second, third, and fourth-place cars was the only race stoppage in the 25 laps. Jake Eldreth, who was running second made contact with Matt Campbell and flew into the fourth turn catch fence. Collected in the incident was fourth-place Chris Arnold. Eldreth received a check-up from the track EMTs after complaining of head pain.

Hammaker was placed fourth for the restart, moved past Kyle Denmyer into third on lap 18, and then drove under both Kevin Nouse and race-long leader Steve Drevicki entering turn three of lap 22.

From there, he drove away to his sixth career win and the $1,200 top prize.

Second through fifth were Drevicki (in his best ever Lincoln finish), Nouse, Adrian Shaffer, and Denmyer.

Heats for the 41 358’s on hand were won by Denmyer, Jordan Givler, Shaffer, and Brent Shearer, with Phil Walter winning the consolation.

WALTON SCORES FIRST 358 SPRINT CAR WIN AT TRAIL-WAY

HANOVER, PA (7/1/2016) –Tyler Walton has ten career wins, including one this season, in the micro-sprints at Trail-Way Speedway.

But on Friday night, he scored his first career win in the 358 sprint car division.

“Wow! I don’t know what to say,” said Walton after exiting the Roger McKeehan #4R in victory lane, “We got off to such a terrible start that I thought Roger was going to get rid of me.  The car has been fast.  It was just waiting on the driver.”

Walton started on the outside of the front row, beat polesitter Austin Kirby to the first turn, and drove flawlessly through lapped traffic to lead every lap.  Seth Kearchner ran second every lap, actually pulling alongside Walton in lapped traffic a few times.  He crossed .86 seconds behind the winner, with Doug Hammaker, David Holbrook, and Jeff Halligan rounding out the top five.

Sixth through tenth were J.B. Cunningham, Dwight Leppo (who actually tipped onto his side and brought out the red flag in turn two of lap 12, but changed a flat tire and returned to the track for the restart), Kirby, hard charger Zach Euculano (who started 15th), and Dan Richcreek.

Qualifiers for the 15 sprint cars were won by Leppo and Halligan.
