Rutherford, Keiser & Houdeshell Victorious at 29th Annual Kevin Gobrecht Memorial/National Open

Hanover, PA (9/22/18) - For the 8th time in his career, Mike Rutherford raced to victory in the 270 Micro Sprint 40-lap “Kevin Gobrecht Memorial/National Open” A-main at Trail-Way Speedway.

 

Polesitter Brent Bull was able to secure the lead on the initial green, but by the 12th lap, Rutherford, who started in the outside pole position, was inching closer to Bull. Rutherford drove to the inside of Bull in turns one and two, completing the pass and taking over the lead on lap 17.  

 

“Brent Bull was real fast all night long,” Rutherford commented in victory lane, “and it looked like after 10 or 15 laps he started getting a little free going into (turn) one and we were just able to hug the apex a little tighter than he was and got by him.”

 

While Rutherford drove away to a commanding lead, maneuvering around lapped cars, fourth starter Brian Marriott closed in on Bull for the runner up spot. Bull and Marriott fastly approached the lapped cars of Connor Bollinger and Jason Houtz and while making their way around the lapped cars, Marriott took advantage of the situation and made the pass for second on the 24th lap.

 

“There was quite a bit of lapped traffic but they were definitely paying attention to the blue and yellow flag,” Rutherford continued. “They made it pretty easy to get through there.”

 

Rutherford went on to cross the line by a 2.363 second margin of victory over Marriott. Andrew Dietrich, Bull and Cory Myers completed the top five.

 

Thurmont, Maryland’s Doug Yingling started the 40-lap feature in the 24th spot and took home the Donahue Motorsports Hard Charger award with a 12th place finish.

 

Heat wins for the 29 270 Micro Sprints went to Bull, Billy Logeman and Devin Adams.

 

Travis Keiser dominated the 600 Micro Sprint portion of the 29th Annual Kevin Gobrecht Memorial/National Open at Trail-Way Speedway. Keiser won his heat race, the dash and led every lap of the 40-lap A-main to take home the biggest win of his career.

 

“This is awesome!” Keiser exclaimed in victory lane. “Definitely the biggest win of my career, by far. This one here… I gotta send it out to Greg Hodnett and his family. He was definitely one of my biggest idols in this sport if not the biggest.”

 

The only threat posed to Keiser was a hard charging Kameron Morral nearly half way through the feature. Morral maneuvered around Zane Rudisill on a lap 24 restart and began reeling in Keiser until something broke on his #880 600 Micro Sprint, causing him to pull into the infield on lap 32.  

 

Keiser admitted he had no clue who was behind him throughout the majority of the second half of the race. “I saw 88 pop up on the scoreboard, but I didn’t know who the 88 was!” Keiser said laughing. “Kameron’s always fast. You always gotta worry about him.”

 

Following Keiser across the line was Jesse Snyder, who set fast time earlier in the evening with a 1-lap time of 15.174 seconds. Rudisill finished third followed by Brooklyn Gable in fourth and Rutherford completing the top five. Randy Kunkle was awarded the hard charger award following a 19th- to 9th-place run.

 

Heat winners for the 600 Micro Sprints were Keiser, Morral and Kyle Spence.

 

Scott Houdeshell claimed the 25-lap Central PA Legends win, Saturday night at Trail-Way Speedway. Houdeshell and Jeremy Ott traded the lead position over the first twenty laps until a caution was called involving Ott that placed him in the rear for the following restart.

 

Mason Chaney, who had been running second at the time of the caution, inherited the lead on the 21st lap but immediately lost it to Houdeshell coming to the 22nd lap.

 

Houdeshell went on to record his 6th career Trail-Way victory by a .328 second margin of victory over 11th starting, Travis McClelland. 14th starting Bill Diehl finished third followed by 15th starting Lucas Montgomery and Hayden Pascoe, completed the top five.
