DAVID HOLBROOK CLAIMS 5TH CAREER 358 SPRINT CAR VICTORY

Hanover, PA (5/11/18) – David Holbrook made the race winning pass following a lap 8 caution to claim his 5th career Hoosier Tire Mid-Atlantic 358 Sprint Car victory.

“That was a workout,” an exhausted Holbrook said in victory lane. “You don’t know how rough it is up there, but if I had to pass him that was where I had to be. I knew the restart was the place to go.”

Outside polesitter and racelong leader, Joe Trone Jr., held the top spot up until a caution was brought out by last week’s race winner, Austen Treuchet, who spun out in turn four collecting Brody Treaster. On the restart, Holbrook took to the high side of the race track and was able to make the race winning pass on Trone.

“We were a little slow the first couple of weeks and we’ve been making changes trying to catch up to this car,” Holbrook explained, “I think maybe we found something she likes.”

One lap later, Trone tagged the frontstretch wall, sending the car several feet up in the air. Trone was able to regain control and held off late race challenges from Mike Bittinger to finish the 25-lap feature race in the runner-up spot. Bittinger collected the Big Mike’s Crabhouse Hard Charger award by finishing third following his tenth-place start. Cody Fletcher and Steven Kisamore completed the top five.

Heats for the 358 Sprints were won by Kisamore and Treuchet.

An announcement was made in victory lane following the 358 Sprint Car feature concerning next week’s (Friday, May 18) Insinger Fuels 358 Sprint Car Spring Championship race. For the first time since Trail-Way began racing 358 Sprint Cars, lineups will be set based on time trials. The 25-lap feature race will pay $1,200 to win with $100 going to the driver that sets fast time.

“I love time trials around this place,” Holbrook mentioned regarding the Spring Championship race. “They need to do it more often.”

Defending track champion, Brian Marriott, claimed the 20-lap Mason Dixon 270 Micro Sprint feature at Trail-Way Speedway. Marriott made the race winning pass on polesitter Joe Long, Jr. on the fourth lap to take his ninth career win and second of 2018.

Long Jr. began to close in on Marriott, lap-by-lap, but in the end came up nearly a second shy of the top spot. Last week’s feature winner and fourteenth starter, Steven Cox finished third and took home the Donahue Motorsports Hard Charger award. Tim McClelland and Cory Myers completed the top five.

Heats for the 16 270 Micro Sprints were won by Zachary Glass and Marriott.

Brian Walls made a late race pass on Aaron Beard to take the Precise Racing Products Street Stock victory. Beard, who assumed the lead on lap eight following polesitter and racelong leader Sam Gallagher’s sudden exit from the speedway, closed the door several times on Walls’ attempts to pass on the inside.

Walls took advantage of Beard, following a lap 14 caution brought out by Jamie Zentmyer, making the pass and collecting the feature win.

A hard charging Mike Walls battled Ryan Smith for several laps and completed a pass for second when he suddenly lost his transmission and had to retire to the infield. Smith was able to finish second followed by Danny Beard, Jim Jacobs and Aaron Beard completing the top five.

Heats for the Street Stocks were won by Mike and Brian Walls.

Matt Chronister led every lap of the 20-lap Limited Stock championship feature to claim his 38th career win.

“I thought I had it the first week but I couldn’t get a good pass on Travis (Brown),” Chronister explained in victory lane. “I thought I had it the second week and I blew a tire trying to race with Robbie (Carroll). So, I guess tonight’s my night!”

“I lost second gear at some point,” Chronister continued, “I drove most of the race with one hand on the wheel and one hand on the shifter trying to hold it in gear. That one restart I went to go and put it in second and it came right back out. Kyle (Rohrbaugh) pushed me enough to get me going again, but from there on I was driving one-handed.”

Carroll, who blew a motor in his heat race, started the feature 24th and was able to make his way through the field to finish in the runner-up spot. Matt Worley, Justin Oberlin and Cody Klinedinst completed the top five.

Heats wins for the 24 Limited Stocks went to Rohrbaugh, Chronister, and Terry Hartlaub.

Next week, Friday, May 18, Trail-Way Speedway hosts the annual Insinger Fuels 358 Sprint Car Spring Championship, paying $1,200 to win. The event will include time trials for the 358 Sprint Cars. The driver that achieves fast time will receive $100. Also in action will be the 600 Micro Sprints, Central PA Legends and Limited Stocks. Trail-Way invites all military personnel to attend as Friday will be “Armed Forces Appreciation Night!” Show your military ID at the admission gate to receive free general admission. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. with heats scheduled to begin at 7:45 p.m.
