Jacob Allen Gets His First Win, Greg Hodnett Wins Central PA Championship

From Alan Holland

The Speedway Motors/Champion Racing Oil Central PA Sprint Cars ran their final race of the 2016 season on Saturday November 5th at Susquehanna Speedway. Jacob Allen came away with his first ever 410 sprint car win and Greg Hodnett won the championship for the seventh time in his career, and the sixth time in the last seven years.

This season it was possible for a driver to compete in 78 local races. There were 88 races held in the series, with Lincoln and Port Royal operating on the same night ten times.

In all 93 drivers were able to score Speedway Motors/Champion Racing Oil series points. Since points are only awarded for top ten finishes, that means 93 drivers scored top ten finishes in local 410 sprint car races this year. In those 88 races, 33 different drivers scored feature wins.

Hodnett was at the top of that list with 19 wins in the series. Hodnett also scored 12 seconds, 16 thirds, six fourths, three fifths, and six other top ten runs for 62 races in the top ten.

He also won the Williams Grove point title.

Second place Danny Dietrich won nine times with 11 seconds, and 16 other top fives, plus 23 other top tens, for a total of 59 top ten runs. Dietrich was the 2016 PA Speedweek champion. Lucas Wolfe ended the season third with four wins, 26 other top fives and 18 more top tens for 48 total top tens.

Brian Montieth won six times, had 19 other top fives, and 13 more top tens for a total of 38 top ten runs. Brent Marks rounded out the top five with four wins, 21 other top fives and 16 more top tens, for a total of 41 top ten runs.

Rounding out the top ten in points were Lincoln champ Alan Krimes with two wins, and 39 top tens, Lance Dewease who won ten times, and scored 23 top tens in just 26 total starts, Port Royal champ Doug Esh with three wins, and 38 top tens, Stevie Smith, another part time racer, who won three times, and scored 27 top tens in just over 30 races, and Ryan Smith, who won once, and notched 31 top tens.
