Owings Celebrates 50th Birthday With Fourth Trail-Way Win of the Year

From Kalida Landis

HANOVER, Pa. (July 7, 2017) – “They certainly didn’t make it easy. I guess they don’t care it’s my 50th!”

So said Steve Owings after giving himself a 50th birthday present in Friday night’s 358 sprint car feature at Trail-Way Speedway.

Owings started third, dropped to fourth behind fourth-starting Isaac Sneeringer on the first lap, and was running there when polesitter Wyatt Hinkle and sixth-starting David Holbrook made contact and brought out the caution flag on turn two of lap two. Holbrook never stopped, but the yellow flag turned into a red when Hinkle complained of pain between his shoulders. He was treated at the track by emergency personnel and released.

Owings drove back around Sneeringer for second on the restart, and drove under outside front row starter and race-long leader Cody Fletcher for the top spot on turn four of lap ten. From there, he dominated the rest of the way, crossing 1.75 seconds ahead of Sneeringer, who took second from Fletcher on lap 12.

Fletcher, Holbrook, and Joe Trone, Jr. completed the top five.

“Hopefully, we’re making these guys faster,” said Owings, “It sure helps me getting this seat time.”

“This is a great racing surface,” continued Owings, “Some of those guys from Lincoln ought to come here.”

Qualifiers for the ten sprint cars were won by Mike Bittinger and Owings. Bittinger jumped from his car and rolled onto the ground after experiencing a fire in his race car during a 16th-lap caution. He was uninjured.

Bradley Weber raced to his second win of the year and the 11th win of his Trail-Way career in the 20-lap 600cc micro-sprint feature. His margin of victory was 2.16 seconds over Jim Young, with Steven Bull (who led the first 11 laps) third, hard charger Jesse Snyder (who started 12th) fourth, and Tyler Leese fifth.

Young and Leese were the heat winners for the 15 micros on hand.

Jeremy Stremmel, started second and led every lap of the 20-lap street stock feature. It was was also Stremmel’s second win of the year and the ninth of his TW career. Zach Myers finished second, with Michael Goodwin and Travis Leh the only other two cars running at the end. Dalton Myers was credited with fifth.

Stremmel also won the lone heat for the seven street stocks in attendance.

Jason Chronister started on the outside of the front row and led every lap of the 15-lap main for limited stocks.

It was Chronister’s third win of the year and the 17th win of his career at Trail-Way. He crossed .43 seconds ahead of polesitter Robbie Carroll, who held off 17th-starting Terry Hartlaub and Justin Wagaman in a wild three-car race for the runner-up spot. Roy Denike was fifth.

Carroll and Jason Chronister were heat winners for the 20 limited stocks.

Next Friday, July 14th, Trail-Way swings back into action with the 358 Late Models, the Big Wheel Street Stocks, Trail-Way Street Stocks, and Limited Stocks. The Auto Racing Club of Hagerstown will be in attendance for “ARCH Night,” and will be offering $3 off general admission with proof of membership.
