Capitol Renegade King of the 358's presented by the Central PA 358 Point Series

The 2016 racing season is just around the corner and Capitol Renegade and The Central PA 358 Point Series have teamed up to bring the teams of the 358 division and the fans something that has never been done before. 8 races at all 4 local race tracks that host the 358 division with $3,600 on the line for the race teams as well as special rewards from series sponsor Capitol Renegade.

The Capitol Renegade King of the 358's presented by The Central PA 358 Point Series was born out of wanting to see is the best all round best 358 driver in Central PA. Wayne Quackenbush the General Manager of Capitol Renegade came up with the idea for the series. “I really felt like the season long point series really eliminated a lot of drivers. Certainly the Champs from the last 2 years deserved the title but how many guys couldn’t compete because of the number of races you have to run? 25 years ago I was one of those guys that could only afford to run 15-18 races. Because of that I also felt like quite a few people lost interest in following the series points. The Summer series Kevin Nouse put on last year seemed to attract more attention. After talking it over with Bill, we came up with the idea of 8 races at the 4 tracks. Best all-around driver wins it. You have to run the big track, the little track and the 2 intermediate tracks that each are unique. If you do that you have earned the right to be named the King of the 358’s. I am really excited to do this, I think it will generate a lot of interest for the 358 racers and I think it opens up the opportunity to everyone”.

For years the 358 division has had drivers at each local track have dominate. Never have we seen what the drivers and race teams could do if they had a major incentive to run at all 4 race tracks to see who the best driver is. Now with the Capitol Renegade King of the 358's we will find out. To make this a 1 of a kind series we have come up with a point structure that will be easy to follow for race teams and fans of the series, but we also made it so that to win and be crowned the series champion, you will have to run all 8 races at all 4 race tracks.

The point system will see the winner of the 358 feature receive 1 point for the win. The 10th place finisher will receive 10 points and last place will receive 24 points. Any driver who races that night but does not qualify for the feature event will receive 25 points, and any driver who skips a race but has points at other races in the series will automatically receive 30 points. Simple as this, lowest point total at the end of the 8 races will be crowned the King of the 358 division.

We came up with a simple and fair way to keep track of the points, but also designed it so that race teams will have incentive to not skip a race at any of the race tracks. We want to make sure that all the teams that do support all 4 race tracks have the most to gain. This is not only a way to give back to the race teams but also to help out all 4 local race tracks to bring a few extra cars pit side those nights. Teams that might not run at Trail Way Speedway will have a reason to make the trip, and teams who don't run at Williams Grove now will have a reason to go and try the most historic half mile on the east coast.

The winner of the Capitol Renegade King of the 358's will receive $2,000 for being crowned the King. To sweeten the pot series sponsor Capitol Renegade will be throwing in huge gift certificates to the drivers who finish in the top 3 of the series. “After really thinking about a way to give back to the drivers, I wanted to see more than one guy have the opportunity to earn some prize money. I also wanted to give out some gift certificates towards the purchase of a trailer from us. The certificates are transferable, so if the guy that wins it doesn’t need a trailer, hopefully he knows someone that does and a little horse trading can take place. Second place in the series will receive $1,200 and 3rd place will receive $600. The champion will receive a crown fitting of being the King of the 358's. A first for the drivers of the 358 division in Central PA.

The schedule for the Capitol Renegade King of the 358's presented by Capitol Renegade is as follows...

April 10th Susquehanna Speedway
May 8th Susquehanna Speedway
May 13th Williams Grove Speedway
May 20th Trail Way Speedway
June 4th Lincoln Speedway

Season Ending Thank You's.

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank those that have helped the Central PA 358 Point Series presented by Capitol Renegade have it's best season ever in 2015.

First and foremost I need to thank Wayne Quackenbush and everyone at Capitol Renegade for being the title sponsor again in 2015. Without Wayne and everyone at Capitol Renegade their would be no 358 Point Series. With his help in sponsorship and his help at not only the race track but also on social media spreading the word of the 358 point series and the division as a whole, we have been able to attract more attention to the division, the drivers, and the race teams. Thank you Wayne for stepping up and helping to keep the series moving forward into 2016 and beyond.

Thank you to Allen Holland at Hoseheads.com for being a sponsor again in 2015. Allen who helps with the 410 series as well has been a big help since the inseption of the series in 2009.

Thank you to Jason and Britany Loss at Delco Designs for everything they do for the series. Jason was the very first person to contact me back in 2009 to help with the series and over the years has done the victory lane stickers as well as the awesome victory lane signs we have had the past two seasons.

Thank you to PA Powder Custom Powder Coating for being back with the series for the third season.
Thank you to the fans in turn 4 at Lincoln Speedway known as Jager Hill Racing. You guys all rock.

Thank you to Andrew Rucker for all his computer knowledge. Nobody will ever know the amount of phone calls Andrew gets from me when I screw up the computer and can't update the website. Hopefully we can get a new more modern site up and running in 2016.

Thank you to the new kids on the block in 2015...

Thank you to Kristina Chambers and everyone at Slicks and Sticks radio Show. Kristina came on board at the end of 2014 racing season and we tried to come up with new ways to spread the word of not only the 358 point series, but the race teams of the 358 division as a whole. With her work the division has been able to get some much needed exposure nation wide with her popular radio show which is on every Thursday night during the racing season. She was able to help race fans nation wide get to know the drivers on a whole new level.

Thank you to Wayne Harper. Wayne makes sure the fans at both Trail Way Speedway on Friday nights and Lincoln Speedway on Saturday nights are kept up to speed with the series. Making sure all the sponsors of the series are announced at the race tracks helping to maximize the exposure for everyone in the division.

Thank you to each and every photographer who took pictures for the 358 point series in 2015. Loren Carman and Tim Moran at Williams Grove Speedway, Len Cabasco at Trail Way Speedway, and Barry Skelly and Allen Yeager at Lincoln Speedway, along with Tony De Seta when needed at other area race tracks. Without you all helping in Victory lane the website would just be a bunch of words. Thank you all.

Thank you to all the race tracks who have helped in 2015 when ever needed. You all at Trail Way, Lincoln, and Williams Grove always are willing to help out me or the 358 point series whenever I need anything or have any questions.

Thank you to all the fans of the 358 division. You guys have helped spread the word for years about the great racing in the 358 division, no matter what race track it was on. You have stuck with the series through low car counts, and bad racing, and continue to show up and support the races teams and the feature of local sprint car racing in Central PA.

And last but not least, THANK YOU to each and every driver,car owner,crew member,girlfriend,boyfriend,wife,husband,mom and dad of the 358 division. You guys are the reason I continue to spend countless hours at race tracks and behind the scenes doing everything I can to help make this division as big as it can be. I have said this to many of you over the years, but without all of the time and money that you all sacrifice to entertain all of us every weekend, I would have nothing to do and would spend more weekends at home driving my wife crazy. I will never be able to repay you all for everything you do week in and week out not only to race, but also just for me and the point series.

Just like McIntyre, it was his fourth career Lincoln win, and came by 1.75 seconds over Shaffer.
Third through fifth were Hershey, Matt Campbell (who came from the rear following a fourth turn spin on lap four), and Kyle Denmyer.
Heats for the 26 358’s were won by Cole Young, Denmyer, and Phil Walter, with Tyler Walton setting a new 5-lap track record in winning the consolation with a time of 1 minute, 19.25 seconds.

Central PA 358 Point Series presented by Capitol Renegade weekend in review

This weekend the Central PA 358 Point Series presented by Capitol Renegade saw the final race of 2015 completed at Trail Way Speedway with a familiar face in victory lane. Brad McClelland would draw the pole position for the 2nd week in a row and would lead all 30 laps to win the 2015 Trone Outdoors 358 Championship and the $2,000 top prize. Isaac Sneeringer would make a run through the field for a 2nd place finish which would be good enough to make him the 2015 Trail Way Speedway track champion. Cody Fletcher, Dwight Leppo, and David Holbrook would round out the top 5.

Saturday's race at Lincoln Speedway would fall to mother nature and with that Doug Hammaker is your 2015 Lincoln Speedway track champion.

With the rain out of Saturday there are only 2 races left in the race for the  2015 Central PA 358 Point Series presented by Capitol Renegade Championship. Williams Grove Speedway will host the next to last race on September 25th. Doug Hammaker now has a 119 point lead going into the final two point races and can clinch the Central PA 358 Point Series title. The only driver who still has a mathematical chance of catching Doug is the 2014 series champion Brad McClelland, but Brad will need to win both features as well as both heat races to score the maximum of 120 points. If Brad does not race at Williams Grove Speedway's next event then Doug will be crowned the 2015 series champion after hot laps.

Congratulations to the 2015 Central PA 358 Point Series presented by Capitol Renegade rookie of the year David Holbrook who scored a win on June 5th would lead a solid rookie group that saw a total of 3 rookies score win in 2015. Cole Young and Bill Stine would also score their first career 358 feature wins in their rookie season in the 358 division.
