ABBOTTSTOWN, Pa. — Dylan Cisney led wire-to-wire for his second sprint car win of the season at Lincoln Speedway on Saturday night.

Cisney started on the pole of the 30-lap feature with Glenndon Forsythe lined up on his outside. Cisney shot out to the lead while a battle for third ensued between Dalton Dietrich, Kyle Moody and Dylan Norris.

Dietrich emerged victorious and took the third spot with Moody settling into fourth when the red flag came out before the first lap was completed. Chad Trout, last week’s winner, ended up on his side in turn four.

Cisney and Forsythe paced the field for the restart. Cisney got out to the lead again and this time the battle was for fourth as Troy Wagaman Jr. challenged Moody for the spot.

Moody had his sight set on third despite the charge from Wagaman, Moody and Dietrich raced wheel to wheel at the line on lap two with Dietrich holding on to third. Moody wasn’t going away and ran the top around the track to take the third spot on lap three from Dietrich.

Tim Wagaman wasn’t far behind and got by Dietrich on lap four. Wagaman followed moving into the top five on lap five.

Cisney caught the tail end of the field on lap eight with a 2.592-second lead over Forsythe. Cisney was able to increase his lead in lapped traffic.

Wagaman reeled in Moody and a battle for third was underway with both drivers running the top line around the three-eighths-mile oval.

Forsythe, Moody and Wagaman, running second, third and fourth, were under a blanket mid-way through the 30-lap feature. All three drivers were running the top line around the track.

The caution flag flew on lap 18 for Freddie Rahmer who caught the wall in turn three after running three wide down the back stretch with Jim Siegel and Montieth. The three were running for the 17th spot.

Cisney led Forsythe, Moody, Wagaman and Wagaman Jr. to the cone for the single file restart. Cisney drove through the middle of turns one and two with Forsythe going to the top on the restart. Moody ran the bottom trying to gain on Forsythe with Wagaman on his bumper.

Moody was getting a good run off of turn two but Forsythe was the better car coming out of turn four.

Lap 24 saw another yellow flag when Cale Thomas got turned around in turn four.

The field lined up for the restart with six laps to go. The top five were Cisney, Forsythe, Moody, Wagaman and Wagaman Jr.

Point-leader Brandon Rahmer got under Chase Dietz for sixth on the restart. Cisney maintained the lead and had a 1.103-second advantage over Forsythe with five laps to go.

Cisney raced to the checkered flag 3.034 seconds ahead of Forsythe. Moody crossed the line third. Wagaman finished fourth and Wagaman Jr. rebounded from a mechanical failure the week before for a fifth-place finish.

Todd Rittenhouse lined up fourth for the 20-lap 358 sprint car feature and drove to his second victory in as many weeks.
