ABBOTTSTOWN, Pa. (March 17, 2018) – Brian Montieth drove under race-long leader Alan Krimes with the white flag waving entering the first and second turns, and raced away to his historic 56th career win in the 25-lap 410 sprint feature at the Fabulous Lincoln Speedway Saturday afternoon.
It looked like Alan Krimes had the field covered, leading the first 23 laps from his pole starting position. But then Montieth “happened”!
Montieth came from his 9th starting position and charged through the field to move into second place on the 16th lap. But with Krimes effortlessly working through lapped traffic early on it didn’t appear Montieth would have a shot at the win.
A series of fortuitous cautions kept giving Krimes a clear track and remained in control as the laps wound down. But following the final caution restart with six laps to go, Krimes caught lapped traffic as Montieth closed with two laps to go.
With the white flag waving, Krimes got bottled up behind lapped cars entering the first and second turns. Montieth dove under Krimes and exiting the second turn with the lead and then led the final turns for his first win of 2018.
Krimes settled for a disappointing runner-up finish, with sixth-starting Cory Haas third, 10th-starting Kyle Moody fourth, and Jim Siegel fifth.
Completing the top-10 were Lucas Wolfe, Anthony Macri, Glenndon Forsythe, Greg Hodnett, and Caleb Helms
Heats for the 27 410 Sprints were won by Krimes, Brett Michalski, and Cole Young.
Heats for the 30 Central PA Legends were won by Mason Chaney, Scott Haudeshell, and Travis Perry, with Lucas Montgomery winning the consolation.
Lincoln Speedway switches to night time racing next Saturday, March 24th at 6 PM, with the 410 Sprints being joined by the 358 Sprints. Gates will open at 4 PM, with hot laps getting underway at 5:30 PM, and heats at 6 PM.
