Irvine Leads The Way In Clearfield


CLEARFIELD, Pa. – The R Bar and Quigley’s Bar presented a six division show at Americas Motorsports Park on Saturday night.

The feature winners include Roger Irvine in the Race Saver 305 Sprints; Luke Hoffner in the Randy Sterling Late Models; Denny Fenton in the Denny’s Beer Barrel Pub Semi Late Models; Curtis Teats in the Harter and Son’s Garage Street Stocks, Jim Challelingsworth in the Quigley’s Pub Pure Stocks and Stephanie Ivory in the Clearfield County Metals Four Cylinders.

The Sprints took to the track first as slim field made its way to the Clearfield oval for their first visit of the season, as Roger Irvine and Craig Folmar led the field to the green flag, with fourth place Steve Kenawell taking the initial lead. He held on for three laps before Irvine wrestled the lead away from him.

As Irvine led second place was a tussle, with Dusty Shatzer in the position first, then Folmar had the spot, but several times it changed, but stayed the same at the start finish line. As the laps wore down, Folmar continued to reel in Irvine, but Irvine wanted the win bad and took Allen Luzier’s checkers. Folmar held on for second with Shatzer, Kenawell and Ron Aurand. The heat was won by Folmar.

Josh Jacoby and Randy Sterling led the Late Models to the start with Sterling taking the lead, but disaster struck on lap three, as a tangle in turn four ended Sterling’s night, as he ended up at the hospital with a badly broken finger.

The restart saw Luke Hoffner on the point and he led the event from there to the end, but local boy Chris Farrell was in second and trying every trick he knew to get the lead away from Hoffner, but Hoffner prevailed over Farrell, Andrew Gordon, Duane Stiner and Justin Kanouff. Farrell and Dan Gill.

The Street Stock feature saw newcomers Daryl Whetstone and Dan Smeal on the front row, with fourth place starter Tony Brown taking the lead for the first two laps, then he pitted after spinning while leading. This gave the lead over to Curtis Teats, who was late due to attending his prom, but he made it to the track in time for the feature.
