From Lincoln Speedway

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA , 5/1/2010 -What looked like a three-car race for the win between Aaron Ott, Kerry Madsen, and Brian Montieth quickly turned into a Fred Rahmer victory in the 30-lap O’Reilly All-Star Series feature event at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

Australia’s Madsen looked to have the lead when he drove under outside front row starter and race-long leader Ott exiting turn two of lap 17, but a caution for a stopped Doug Esh on the backstretch negated the pass and put Ott back in the lead.

Nine laps later, Madsen spun in turn four, collecting fourth-place Brian Montieth, who had yielded to Rahmer five laps earlier. That put Rahmer on Ott’s back bumper for the restart, and Rahmer made his patented third-turn slider to claim the top spot exiting turn four of lap 25.

“I saw we were coming up on those lapped cars and I was just trying to go to the bottom and see if I was going to be able to do anything,” said Rahmer about the late-race Madsen spin, “Kerry’s car was operating good because he was able to run at high speed getting through three and four through the middle. Then I started going there and got the wing back a little bit further and it locked down pretty good.”

From there, Rahmer pulled away to a 1.07-second win, his 166th in the Pigeon Hills. By winning his second in-a-row at Lincoln, the Salfordville racer became the first repeat winner of 2010 in the Pigeon Hills.

“We got lucky there at the end,” continued Rahmer, “We were a third place car. I’ll tell you what…that Aaron Ott is doing a helluva job. It’s an awful tough thing to do to try and go in and do a flyer on one of your best friend’s sons. I’m just glad to win. I want to thank Chad and Jen Clemens and all the sponsors on this car. It just feels good to win.”

Ott settled for second, with fifth-starting Stevie Smith crossing third, polesitter Alan Krimes fourth, and Mark Smith fifth. Completing the top ten were 16th-starting and top-finishing All-Star Tim Shaffer, Cory Haas, 14th-starting Brad McClelland, Dale Blaney, and 19th-starting Danny Dietrich.

Heats for the sprinters were won by McClelland, All-Star rookie Cap Henry, Shaffer, and Esh, with Doug Dodson winning the B-Main. Fred Rahmer won the Dash.

Fast time in time trials over the 39-car was set by Krimes with a one-lap time of 13.538-seconds (99.719 MPH).

Tim Henry came from sixth starting spot to become the sixth and final leader of the 15-lap Central PA Legends feature. Henry took the lead when Blaine Leppo got out of shape coming off turn four of lap 14 and held off both Leppo and 11th starting and hard charging Lucas Montgomery over the final two laps.

Most of the event was a three-car race between Reed Solony, Leppo, and Henry, with Henry unable to find a way by. But Solony spun in turn two while leading, handing the top spot back to Leppo on lap 13.

Henry pass for the lead came just before the final caution of the race for a four-car melee in turns three and four of lap 14. Henry was driving a Greg Burd team car.

Heats for the 24 Central PA Legends were won by Henry, Solony, and Andy Lupfer.

Next Saturday night, May 8th, at 7 PM, Lincoln Speedway will host a three-division, four-feature show on YORK COUNTY RACING CLUB NIGHT. The Lawrence Chevrolet 410 Sprinters will be joined my the Keizer Aluminum Wheels 358 sprints and the Thundercars. In addition to the regularly scheduled event for the 358 Sprinters, they will also run the make-up feature for the rained-out event from May 24th. Gates will open at 5 PM and hot laps get underway around 6:30 PM.
