Hallam’s Adrian Shaffer was the winner of a wild "358" sprint car make-up feature from last Saturday night after surviving contact with challenger Isaac Sneeringer in the final turns.
Rookie Sneeringer grabbed the lead from the pole and led the first 18 laps before Shaffer wrestled the to spot in heavy lapped traffic on the next-to-last lap. Sneeringer made one final bid to reclaim the lead in the final turns, but tapped the inside of Shaffer and spun, collecting Brook Weibley Steve Owings, and a few others in the process.
Fifth-starting Jeff Rohrbaugh drove back around 11th-starting Logan Schuchart on the final turn to claim second, with Schuchart third. Billy Dietrich, who started 12th, finished fourth, with 10th-starting Dale Hammaker fifth. Sixth through tenth were hard charger Niki Young (started 19th), Tim Wagaman, Billy Pauch, Jr., Chad Trout, and Tim Berkheimer.
In only his second week out after a dozen years away, Hanover’s Joey Allen dominated the regularly-scheduled "358" sprint car feature. Allen, whose Jeff Spalding race team hauled the car to the track on an open trailer pulled by a Suburban, started on the pole and led every lap.
Matt Boland started fourth and finished second, with Kyle Moody, Jeff Rohrbaugh, and Billy Dietrich crossing third through fifth. Sixth through tenth were Brook Weibley, Jay Galloway, Logan Schuchart, Adrian Shaffer, and Kevin Nagy.
Heats for the 36 "358" Sprints were won by Dietrich, Dale Hammaker, Allen, and Scott Fisher, with Pauch winning the consolation.
