DYLAN NORRIS NOTCHES FIRST CAREER 358 SPRINT CAR VICTORY

Hanover, PA (4/27/18) – It didn’t take long for the #44 Golf Cart Services sponsored 358 Sprint Car to find victory lane at Trail-Way Speedway. Polesitter, Dylan Norris, led the entire 25-lap Hoosier Tire Mid-Atlantic 358 Sprint Car feature to take his first career 358 Sprint Car win. However, Norris’ first win did not come without obstacles.

During a lap 20 caution for Joe Trone Jr, who was battling David Holbrook for the second and third positions, a red light was inadvertently switched on for a brief second causing Norris to come to a complete stop on the backstretch. After track officials spoke with Norris about the incident, Norris was able to assume the lead for the restart, now with Holbrook and Cody Fletcher lining up behind him.

On the restart, Norris jumped to a four-car length lead leaving Holbrook and Fletcher to battle for the runner-up spot. A lap later, Holbrook and Fletcher made contact in turn four to bring out another caution. This time, it was Mike Bittinger’s turn to challenge the 14-year-old racer for the win, but Norris was once again able to jump out to a comfortable lead, hitting every mark all the way to victory lane.

Bittinger followed Norris across the line .899 seconds later, followed by Big Mike’s Crabhouse Hard Charger, Austen Treuchet, Steven Kisamore and Brody Treaster completing the top five.

Heat wins went to Holbrook and Kisamore.

Jim Young raced to his first win of 2018 in the 600 Micro Sprint 20-lap feature. The win marked Young’s 10th career win, placing him in a tie for 6th all-time, along with now 410 Sprint Car driver, Dwayne Gutshall.

Young, who started on the pole, was able to finish with a 6.845 second lead in the 20-lap nonstop feature.

“I was getting a little nervous with the lapped cars,” Young commented in victory lane. “I would’ve rather had a clean track the whole time but you gotta race sometimes.”

Second through fifth went to Travis Keiser, Bradley Weber, Zane Rudisill and Donahue Motorsports Hard Charger and 11th starter, Tyler Walton.

Rudisill was the 600 Micro Sprint heat race winner.

Austin Belemare found his way to victory lane in the Pizza Shop of Etters Central PA Legends sponsored by Harvest Chapel, 20-lap feature race.

Bellemare and 2017 Central PA Legends point champion, Mason Chaney, battled side-by-side for several laps until Bellemare was finally able to make the race-winning pass on lap 15. The win marked Bellemare’s second career Trail-Way Speedway Central PA Legends victory.

Chaney finished in the runner-up spot followed by Chris Transeau, Scott Houdeshell and Brian Racine completing the top five.

Heats for the Central PA Legends were won by Racine and Bellemare.

Robbie Carroll dominated the 15-lap Limited Stock feature after passing outside polesitter, Justin Oberlin, on the second lap. Carroll was able to maintain a comfortable lead to take his 15th career Limited Stock victory.

Kyle Rohrbaugh finished in second followed by the 2017 Limited Stock track champion, Jason Chronister, Travis Brown and Oberlin, who rounded out the top five.

Limited Stock all-time race winner, Matt Chronister, was challenging for the top spot when a tire went down causing Chronister to retreat to the pits for a quick tire change. He was able to finish the night in the seventh position.

Heat wins for the 17 Limited Stocks went to Carroll and Matt Chronister.
