Dwight Leppo claims first Lincoln win in 358 sprints



The 20-lap “358” sprint thriller saw 305 sprint car veteran John Braim lead every lap until he was caught by Dwight Leppo coming off the final turn. For Leppo, it was his first career Lincoln win, not counting his big wheel race victory several years ago as a kid.

Leppo started on the pole and chased Braim the entire way before making the race-winning pass and crossing a half car-length ahead of Braim at the end.
Third through fifth were ninth-starting Matt Campbell, seventh-starting Brad McClelland, and lady driver Brie Hershey.

358 Sprint heats were won by Jason Schultz, Kevin Nouse, and McClelland. Nouse dropped from the feature field while running third early in the race.

Kevin Nouse wins feature, Rohrbaugh claims Trail-Way/Lincoln Shootout in 358 sprints


Mechanicsburg’s Kevin Nouse came from sixth starting spot to claim his 100th career win in the 20-lap “358” sprint car feature. Nouse took the lead from Doug Hammaker in heavy lapped traffic as the leaders came down the front stretch to begin lap 18.

Hammaker settled for second, with C.J. Tracey, Jeff Rohrbaugh, and Matt Campbell completing the top five.

Rohrbaugh’s fourth-place finish coupled with his fourth-place finish at Trail-Way back on September 5th was good enough to claim the 2014 Trail-Way/Lincoln Shootout bonus of $500, edging Mike Bittinger in a tie-breaker for having the better Lincoln finish.

Heats for the 358 Sprints were won by Bittinger, Hammaker, and Jeff Halligan, with Brad McClelland winning the consolation, and finishing third in the two-race Shootout.

ROOKIE OF-THE-YEAR WYATT HINKLE WINS FIRST CAREER 358 SPRINT FEATURE AT TRAIL WAY SPEEDWAY

Hanover, PA (09/19/14) – Remember the name Wyatt Hinkle.

The 14-year-old from East Berlin entered the season planning to just run test and tune nights at area tracks and get prepared for 2015. He made a last minute decision to compete as a rookie at Trail-Way Speedway, and was among the lapped cars in the first several events.

Hinkle got better every week, and locked up rookie of-the-year honors last time out.

On Friday, he added the exclamation point, taking the lead from the pole and leading every lap for his first career sprint car win. And he did it in dramatic fashion, with his smoking Triple A Transport/Stoney Point Farm Market #19D holding off Seth Kearchner and Randy Whisler over the final five laps. His margin of victory in the thriller was a half car length over Kearchner.

“I started seeing Kearchner with three to go,” said a jubilant Hinkle in victory lane, “and not to mention that my motor was blowing up…”

Hinkle no doubt received another incentive to stay out front when he saw the #6R of track champ Brad McClelland pull into the infield on the first lap.
The race went non-stop in a time of 6 minutes, 11.94 seconds.

Another car length behind Kearchner was Whisler in third, with Dwight Leppo (season points runner-up) and Brian Eichelberger completing the top five.
Heats for the 11 “358” sprinters were won by McClelland and Leppo.
