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 of Irvona in the Race Saver 305 Sprints; Luke Hoffner of Turbotville in the Randy Sterling Late Models; Denny Fenton of Clearfield in the Denny’s Beer Barrel Pub Semi Late Models; Curtis Teats of Morrisdale in the Harter and Son’s Garage Street Stocks, Jim Challelingsworth of St. Mary’s in the Quigley’s Pub Pure Stocks and Stephanie Ivory of Coalport 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.
