Marks Pockets $4,000 At Lincoln


Montieth caught Krimes for the runner-up spot on lap 29, but was unable to catch Marks, who crossed 1.294 seconds ahead of the four-time track champ for his seventh career Lincoln win.

Krimes settled for third, with Fred Rahmer and Wilt completing the top five. Sixth through tenth were Billy Dietrich, Cory Haas, Jim Siegel, Schuchart (who came from the back), and J.J. Grasso completing the top ten.

Heats for the 410 sprinters were won by Schuchart, Krimes, and Marks, with Nicole Bower winning the consolation. Fast time in time trials was set by Siegel over the 25-car field with a one-lap time of 13.434 seconds (100.491 mph).

Mike Bittinger started on the pole and led every lap of the 20-lap 358 sprint car feature. Defending track champ Tim Wagaman started second and ran there the entire race, with sixth-starting Niki Young, 10th-starting Jeff Rohrbaugh, and lady driver Brie Hershey rounding out the top five. Sixth through tenth were 12th-starting Rodney Westhafer, Shane Hoff, 16th-starting Tim Berkheimer, 22nd-starting Matt Mountz, and Jay Galloway.

Heats for the 30 358 sprinters were won by Rohrbaugh, Chase Dietz, and Bittinger, with Ted Thomas winning the consolation.

Spring Grove’s Rick Miller held off the challenges of Tim Henry and Bob Stough to claim his first career Lincoln win in the 15-lap Central PA Legends feature.

Miller started on the outside of the front row and wrestled the lead from polesitter Chad Ernst on the second lap. He led the rest of the way, despite heavy late-race pressure from sixth-starting Henry and eighth-starting Stough.

Ernst crossed fourth, with Blaine Leppo coming from 17th-startng spot to finish fifth.

Heats for the 30 Legends were won by Scott Haudeshell, Jason Rochelle, and Harlon Leppo, with Lucas Montgomery winning the consolation.
