AUSTEN TREUCHET RACES TO 1st CAREER 358 SPRINT CAR VICTORY

Hanover, PA (5/4/18) – A 25-minute rain delay didn’t stop Austen Treuchet from racing his way into victory lane, Friday night, at Trail-Way Speedway. Treuchet started the 25-lap Hoosier Tire Mid-Atlantic 358 Sprint Car feature on the outside pole and grabbed the lead on the start but was challenged nearly every lap by fourth starter, JB Cunningham.

“I wasn’t expecting it tonight, but we pulled a good pill,” Treuchet said in victory lane. “I figured we’d get pushed back in the feature— start in the back again. But I lucked into second (starting spot) and we took it and ran.”

Cunningham nearly completed a pass for the lead on Treuchet in the opening laps of the feature until the yellow flag waved for a caution brought out by John Sharpe. Nearly two laps later the rains began to fall and the 358 Sprint Cars were sent to the pit area to wait out the second rain shower of the night.

Cars were brought back to the track after the brief delay where once again, Treuchet and Cunningham resumed their challenges.

“Me and JB have been racing together forever!” Treuchet exclaimed in victory lane. “I kept seeing him stick his nose down there and I tried to give him room and not block, but that motor is so nasty—I love it.”

Treuchet was able to pull away to a comfortable lead in the closing laps to claim his first career 358 Sprint Car win. Cunningham finished second followed by Kody Hartlaub, Mike Bittinger and Troy Wagaman Jr. Last week’s race winner, Dylan Norris, picked up the Big Mike’s Crabhouse Hard Charger award for advancing five positions in the feature race.

Heats for the 16 358 Sprints were won by Norris and Austin Kirby. This was Kirby’s first career heat race win.

Opening night race winner, Tyler Walton, found his way back to victory lane for the second time in 2018 to claim the 600 Micro Sprint 20-lap victory.

Walton, who started on the pole, was challenged by Jesse Snyder in the opening laps until Snyder blew a fuse on the power line. “I thought I had something but once the motor started missing, he pulled away from me,” Snyder commented following the 600 Micro Sprint feature. From there, Walton was able to pull away to a commanding lead to claim the A-main victory.

Completing the top five were Kameron Morral, Bradley Weber, Donahue Motorsports Hard Charger Jim Young and Zane Rudisill.

Heats for the 600 Micro Sprints were won by Morral and Snyder.

Steven Cox claimed the Mason Dixon 270 Micro Sprint feature race in a thrilling last lap battle with Brian Marriott and Mike Rutherford. Marriott and Rutherford both started on the fourth row and quickly worked their way to the front of the field. By the final lap, a blanket could be thrown over the top three as they came across the line, three-wide. Rutherford was able to take the runner-up spot with Marriott in third.

Completing the top five were Zachary Cool and 15th starter Keera Dupler, who took home the Donahue Motorsports Hard Charger award.

Heats for the 17 270 Micro Sprints were won by Marriott and Rutherford.

Kyle Martin raced to his first Precise Racing Products Street Stock 20-lap feature win, Friday night at Trail-Way Speedway.

Polesitter Gary Warehime led from the initial green up until he and Martin made slight contact on the backstretch causing Warehime to spin out, bringing out the caution flag.

While Martin went on to win in convincing fashion, you could throw a blanket over the remainder of the top-five. Brian Walls and Sam Gallagher were able to make a last lap pass on Danny Beard to finish second, third and fourth, respectively. Ryan Smith completed the top five.

Heat wins for the Street Stocks went to Martin and Brian Walls.

 

Next Friday, May 11th, we’re back in action with the Hoosier Tire Mid-Atlantic 358 Sprint Cars, Mason Dixon 270 Micro Sprints, Precise Racing Products Street Stocks and Limited Stocks. It will also be York County Racing Club Night. All card-holding club members will receive $3 off general admission. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. with heats scheduled to begin at 7:45 p.m.
