STEVEN KISAMORE HOLDS OFF STEVE OWINGS FOR 1ST CAREER 358 SPRINT CAR WIN AT TRAIL-WAY SPEEDWAY

Hanover, Pa. (6/21/19) – Four years of highs and lows brought Stewartstown’s Steven Kisamore to this very moment: Standing on the frontstretch, checkered flag in hand, minutes after claiming his first career Hoosier Tire Mid Atlantic 358 Sprint Car win at Trail-Way Speedway.

“It’s taken a while to get here,” Kisamore admitted in victory lane. “We’ve been trying at it for four years, me and my dad… It’s been me and my dad for the past three years, just me and him, and I think some of the stuff we did, just the two of us, was pretty impressive.”

Kisamore, who started on the pole, had to put together 25 flawless laps with Steve Owings charging towards the front.

Kisamore noted, “As soon as I saw 35 up on the scoreboard, I said, ‘Oh man, this is going to be tough… I’m going to have to work for it now!’ ”

That’s exactly what Kisamore did.

Owings raced around Tim McClelland for the runner up spot on the 10th lap, but found himself at a two-second disadvantage. As the laps ticked down, Owings continued to close in on Kisamore.

With only a half-second lead and a lap car in Kisamore’s sights, Owings slightly hit the berm in turns one and two, widening the gap to nearly a second.

As the white flag waved, Kisamore maneuvered his sprinter around Kyle Rohrbaugh’s lapped car, with Owings following, inches behind.

Kisamore hit his marks coming into three and four and was able to cross the line by a margin of .374 seconds over Owings.

“It was awesome to see him win,” Owings said while claiming the Big Mike’s Crabhouse Hard Charger award. “Obviously I would’ve rather won, but finishing second wasn’t bad. He did an awesome job.”

Following Kisamore and Owings across the line were McClelland, David Holbrook and Joe Trone Jr.

Heat winners for the 358 Sprint Cars were Kisamore and Owings.

Following a big win last Saturday at Path Valley Speedway Park, Randy Kunkle backed it up with his second consecutive 600 Micro Sprint victory Friday night at Trail-Way Speedway.

Kunkle started on the outside pole, immediately grabbed the lead and proceeded to hold off late race charges from Jesse Snyder.

Snyder was unable to make anything work, finishing the night in the runner up spot. Donahue Motorsports Hard Charger Bradley Weber, Hayden Miller and Travis Keiser completed the top five.

Jim Young and Snyder were heat race winners.

“This is no cakewalk,” Sam Gallagher exclaimed after exiting his Street Stock. “Any one of those guys can end up in victory lane.”

Gallagher may have led the entire 20-lap Street Stocks feature race, but the show was behind him.

Father-son duo Danny and Aaron Beard never let Gallagher pull too far away, but they also had their hands full with the previous week’s feature winner, Jamie Zentmyer.

Zentmyer, who started last, raced alongside Danny Beard, trying for a podium finish but was unable to make anything stick.

Aaron Beard finished second followed by Danny Beard, Zentmyer and Dalton Myers.

Gallagher was the lone heat race winner.

It’s rare to see someone pass Robbie Carroll at Trail-Way Speedway in 2019. Matt Chronister did just that. Unfortunately for Chronister, a fuel issue on the ninth lap led to his car stopping in turn two, handing the lead back to Carroll with only a handful of laps remaining.

Carroll would race on to this fifth win of 2019 with Robert Rudisill Jr. finishing in the runner up spot. Cody Klinedinst, Jason Chronister and Terry Hartlaub completed the top five.

Jason Chronister and Matt Worley were heat race winners.
