DYLAN NORRIS SCORES FINAL 358 SPRINT CAR WIN OF 2018 AT TRAIL-WAY

 

Hanover, PA (9/14/18) - Friday night, Dylan Norris was the class of the 358 Sprint Car field at Trail-Way Speedway. In only his first full season of 358 Sprint Car racing, Norris managed to claim three wins and a Rookie of the Year title. On this night, Norris held the 2018 Hoosier Tire Mid Atlantic 358 Sprint Car Track Champion at bay for 25 laps.

 

“I kept seeing him behind me,” Norris commented on David Holbrook, who was lurking behind the leader for the entirety of the feature race. “There was really nothing up top so I figured if I stayed low I’d be alright.”

 

Norris had his hands full when lapped cars came into the picture on the ninth lap. Holbrook and JB Cunningham were within feet of the leader, but as Norris quickly passed Wellsville’s Andrew Frye in turns one and two, Holbrook and Cunningham got together resulting in Cunningham’s brief meeting with the turn two wall, ending his night with a broken front axle.

 

Norris continued to hit his marks over the final 10 laps, once again maneuvering around Frye, this time with one lap remaining. Norris crossed the line with a near one second lead over Holbrook with Mark Van Vorst, Cody Fletcher and Big Mike’s Crabhouse Hard Charger, Steve Owings, completing the top five.

 

Heat winners for the 358 Sprints were Zach Euculano and Cunningham.  

 

Holbrook joined Norris on the frontstretch, as his second place finish secured the 2018 358 Sprint Car Track Championship by 14 points over Fletcher.  

 

“This team really overcame some adversity,” Holbrook commented. “We destroyed our primary car a couple of weeks ago and we came back with this one and we’re still pretty good with it.” Good enough to win a championship.

 

Brian Marriott made the race winning pass on the fourth lap of the 20-lap 270 Micro Sprint feature and went on to claim his third win of the 2018 racing season along with his second consecutive Trail-Way Speedway 270 Micro Sprint Track Championship.

 

“That 20 laps seemed like 50 laps,” an elated Marriott said in victory lane, “I don’t care who it is behind me you can’t let your guard down. If you do that, you’re not a racer. Gotta have your elbows up to the end.” Marriott did just that, taking the checkered flag 1.084 seconds ahead of Tim McClelland. 14th starting Mike Boer finished third followed by Joe Long Jr., and Zachary Glass, who completed the top five.

 

Following his first appearance of 2018 at Trail-Way Speedway, Daniel LaFrance took home the Donahue Motorsports Hard Charger award following his 20th to 7th place run.

 

Heat winners for the 20 270 Micro Sprints were Levi Peck and Steven Cox.

 

Ryan Smith claimed the 20-lap Precise Racing Products Street Stock win, Friday night at Trail-Way Speedway. Smith took the lead away from Danny Beard on the third lap and then lost the lead to Brian Walls nine laps later. Walls was unable to hold onto the lead as he made contact with a lapped car coming out of turn four.

 

Walls, who was racing for the 2018 Street Stock Track Championship, was unable to rejoin the field and was forced to watch the points play out from the infield.

 

Smith assumed the lead on the 14th lap and drove on to claim his second victory of 2018 at Trail-Way. Jeremy Stremmel  and Beard finished second and third, respectively. Sam Gallagher’s fourth place finish secured Walls’ 2018 Street Stock Track Championship by a margin of 23 points.

 

“It feels good,” Walls exclaimed on the frontstretch. “It was fun racing with Ryan for the lead.” While Walls celebrated his Track Championship, the incident in turn four left him with a bitter taste in his mouth. “It’s a shame because we had the car to beat.”

 

Heat wins for the Street Stocks went to Walls and Aaron Beard.

 

Kyle Rohrbaugh picked up the 15-lap Limited Stock victory, Friday night at Trail-Way Speedway. Rohrbaugh, who started fourth, was able to drive around Robbie Carroll on the sixth lap and took the lead away from Terry Hartlaub only a lap later.

 

Rohrbaugh’s win was his third of the season. Terry Hartlaub, Robbie Carroll, Matt Chronister and Jason Chronister rounded out the top five.

 

“I was tired of finishing second.” Robbie Carroll exclaimed on the frontstretch, following his third place finish which cemented him as the 2018 Trail-Way Speedway Limited Stock Track Champion. Carroll, who finished second in the Limited Stock points standings three years in a row, was elated to bring home his first title. “Racing down south made the season long, but it paid off.”

 

Heat winners for the 18 Limited Stocks were Matt Chronister and Carroll.

 

Trail-Way Speedway is back in action next Saturday, September 22, 2018 with the 29th Annual Kevin Gobrecht Memorial/National Open.
