Central PA 358 Point Series presented by Capitol Renegade week in review.

As the 2014 racing season rapidly winds down the Central PA 358 Point Series presented by Capitol Renegade got two more shows in the books. This weekend the 358 sprint teams raced at both Trail Way and Williams Grove Speedeway's on Friday night. At Williams Grove Kevin Nouse would come from 10th starting spot to claim his 8th victory of the season and 5th at the historic half mile. Nouse would stretch his point lead at the track over Adrian Shaffer, Doug Hammaker, Scott Fisher and Rich Eichelberger.

At Trail Way Speedway Brad McClelland would score his 9th win of the season in the highest paying race of the season at the Bullring near Hanover in the $2,000 Trone Outdoor Championship. McClelland would start 8th and captuer not only the win the feature his 10th overall in 2014 but be crowned the 2014 Track Champion at the track. Dwight Leppo would come home in 2nd, Jeff Rohrbaugh, Cody Fletcher and Tyler Buchenauer.

The series point standings have not changed this week as both of the series leaders won both their heats and respective feature events. The Rookie of the Year standings have tightened up as Tyler Buchenauer is now just 18 points back from Tyler Esh who was hurt back in July in a wreck at Lincoln Speedway. Esh was well on his way to the ROY and has held onto the point lead in the standings all summer even though he has not raced since July. With only a few races left can Buchenauer catch him or will have Esh built up enough of a lead to hold on and be crowned the 2014 Central PA 358 Point Series Rookie of the Year.

With Half the series point races being held this coming weekend as Trail Way Speedway host their last race of the season and Williams Grove Speedway both racing Friday night the series leaders will be looking to score some major points before heading to Lincoln Speedway on Saturday night. From there they have 2 races at Kevin Nouse's home track Williams Grove, 1 at Lincoln where Nouse leads McClelland with 2 victories to 1, and the final showdown at Susquehanna Speedway a month later on November 15th. Nouse has 1 win at Susquehanna Speedway as well this season, so Brad is looking to keep the series point lead by going to tracks Nouse has run really well at this season. You can bet both drivers will be racing hard to capture the trophy and the $3,000 top prize that goes with being crowned the 2014 Central PA 358 Point Series presented by Capitol Renegade Champion.

The top 10 in points for the Central PA 358 Point Series presented by Capitol Renegade

McCLELLAND WINS FEATURE AND TRACK TITLE IN TRAIL-WAY 358’S

Hanover, PA (09/12/14) – Brad McClelland took home all the prizes in Friday night’s 30-lap Trone Outdoor Advertising “358” sprint car championship at Trail-Way Speedway.

The Westminster, MD superstar came from eighth starting spot to claim the hard-charger award, win his ninth race of the year, and claim another Trail-Way track title.

And again, the McClelland driving clinic made it look much easier than it was.

“I was getting loose and the car was bottoming out,” said McClelland in victory lane.

Not to mention the fact that he got together with Isaac Sneeringer while racing for the lead in turn two of lap 21, rolling over the right rear wheel of Sneeringer and bouncing off the wall.

Sneeringer came to a stop in turn three with a flat right rear, bringing out the only caution flag of the event. But Sneeringer’s throttle was also stuck, and he dropped from the event.

Sneeringer’s misfortune ended a night which saw him come from sixth starting spot to the lead by lap two. He was nearly a half-lap ahead of the rest of the field by the time he reached lapped traffic on lap eight.

Though McClelland saved it and assumed the lead for the lap 21 restart, his right rear tire went down in victory lane, and needed towed back to the pits.

“I knew lapped traffic would be a factor,” said McClelland, “But I was happy to chase him down. Heck, at one point I didn’t even see him!”

“I want to thank John Trone for sponsoring this race,” McClelland continued, “He’s sponsored a big race every year since the 358’s started running here.”

Dwight Leppo started fifth and crossed second, with seventh-starting Jeff Rohrbaugh, Cody Fletcher, and rookie Tyler Buchenauer rounding out the top five.

Heats for the 15 “358” sprint cars were won by Rohrbaugh and McClelland.

Kevin Nouse Gets Fifth In 358s at Williams Grove Speedway


Kevin Nouse motored from the ninth starting spot in the 20-lap 358 sprint main up to fourth on the first lap as Scott Fisher took control.
Nouse moved into third on the second circuit and then was forced to watch veteran Rich Eichelberger try to overtake Fisher for the lead.

It took until the halfway point for Nouse to finally find an opening to weave through in order to put Eichelberger behind him and after getting by for second he made quick work of Fisher for the lead with seven laps to go.

Adrian Shaffer took over second from Fisher with three to go.
Doug Hammaker got around Fisher for third at the finish with Fisher ending up fourth and Eichelberger fading to fifth.

Heats for the 21-car field went to Nouse, Chandler Leiby and Shaffer.

Matt Campbell wins first career 358 feature at historic Williams Grove Speedway

D.J. Montgomery started second in the 20 lap Tool Sheds of America 358 Sprint Car main event. Montgomery led with Jay Galloway, Tony Smolenyak, Rich Eichelberger, and Chandler Leiby trailing. Montgomery and Galloway had a close battle; the two were even during the third lap.

The fight for first became a five-car challenge when Rich Eichelberger, eighth-place starter Matt Campbell and Chandler Leiby caught the lead duo. The first caution of the event came in the seventh lap when second-place driver Jay Galloway spun in turn two.

D.J. Montgomery, following the restart, led ahead of Rich Eichelberger, Matt Campbell, Chandler Leiby, and Kevin Nouse. Campbell wrestled second from Eichelberger and quickly challenged Montgomery for the lead.

Matt Campbell, in the 12th circuit, drove under D.J. Montgomery in turn three. Exiting turn four Campbell slid up the track and made contact with Montgomery’s car. Montgomery’s machine struck the outside fencing launching the car into a series of flips. A stunned D.J. Montgomery walked away from the accident scene.

Matt Campbell was the new leader and the Fawn Grove driver gained a four-second advantage. Rich Eichelberger, Chandler Leiby and Kevin Nouse were in an intense competition for second position.

Matt Campbell won his first Williams Grove Speedway feature by 5.6 seconds. He missed by two days of becoming the youngest driver to win at Williams Grove Speedway.

McCLELLAND SCORES EIGHTH TRAIL-WAY WIN OF THE YEAR IN 358 SPRINTS

Hanover, PA (09/05/14) – “We got lucky again.”

So say a lot of winners in victory lane. But Brad McClelland was right.

McClelland drew the pole for the first leg of the Trail-Way/Lincoln 358 Shootout, and led every lap of Friday night’s 25-lap feature event.

“The track was outstanding…the best it’s been all year,” said the Central PA 358 point series leader after scoring his eighth Trail-Way win of the year, “We’ve had a real good season, and my crew always has an awesome car for me to race.”

The only issue McClelland had to deal with was lapped traffic through the first 18 non-stop laps, and even they didn’t seem to bother him.

“The lapped cars were real good,” said McClelland, “This one was easy tonight.”

McClelland’s final margin of victory over second-place Mike Bittinger was 2.69 seconds.

Cody Fletcher, ninth-starting Jeff Rohrbaugh (hard charger), and Jeff Halligan completed the top five.

The only caution of the event came out on lap 19 for Shane Smith, who slowed on the front stretch and came to a stop in turn one. During the caution, Isaac Sneeringer pulled to the infield.

Heats for the 16 “358” sprinters were won by Zach Euculano and Randy Whisler.

Chandler Leiby becomes 12th different ’14 winner in 358 sprints




Chandler Leiby, grandson of Lincoln co-promoter Bob Leiby and whose family is close friends with race sponsor John Gleim, came from eighth starting spot to claim his first win of the year in the 20-lap “358” sprint car feature. It was Leiby’s second career Lincoln win.



Outside front row starter Denny Gross led the first seven laps before giving way to C.J. Tracy. Leiby was up to third by the end of the third lap, and took the lead from Tracy on lap 12. Following a lengthy red flag when two cars got hooked together in turn two of lap 13, Leiby held off Kevin Nouse, C.J. Tracy, Niki Young, and points leader Chase Dietz over the final seven laps.



Heats for the 31 “358” Sprints were won by Matt Campbell, Nouse, and Doug Hammaker, with Zach Euculano winning the consolation.
