Owings Takes Trail-Way Season Opener For 358 Sprints

HANOVER, PA (4/14/2017) – “It’s nice to win the first time out.”

So said Steve Owings after claiming the opening night win in Friday’s 25-lap “358” sprint car feature.

Owings started third, slid under race-long leader Dwight Leppo for the front spot exiting turn two of lap 20, and scored his 11th career Trail-Way win in a non-stop time of six minutes, seven seconds.

“Dwight drove a hell-of-a race,” said Owings upon exiting the Rodney Valentine Westminster Lawn/B&D Truck Hoist #35 in victory lane, “Thank goodness for lapped traffic. I don’t think I could have caught him without it.”

Leppo, who led the first 19 laps, crossed second, followed by fifth-starting Isaac Sneeringer, J.B. Cunningham, and polesitter Cody Fletcher, who drew a “0” pill for the inversion after winning the first heat.

Sixth through tenth were defending track champ and hard charger David Holbrook (who started 11th), Steve Storrie, Wyatt Hinkle, Joe Trone, Jr., and Austin Kirby.

“We’re going to be back in the 410’s tomorrow night (at Lincoln), but we’ll be back here as much as we can,” said Owings, “I love Trail-Way. If didn’t like this, you shouldn’t be here.”

Heats for the 14 “358” sprint cars were won by Fletcher and Leppo.

Brian Marriott came from tenth starting spot to win the Mason Dixon 270cc micro-sprint feature. It was Marriott’s sixth career Trail-Way win.

Joe Long, Jr. started on the pole and led the first nine laps before Marriott made the race-winning pass on a tenth-lap restart. Jim Young, Michael Boer, and Mike Rutherford rounded out the top five.

Qualifiers for the 18 micros were won by Marriott and Rutherford.

Mason Chaney scored the win in a wild 20-lap Central PA Legends feature that saw him lead laps two through four, and lap six through 20. Polesitter Bill Diehl led the fist lap and Hayden Pascoe led lap five in a multi-car battle at the front of the field. In the end, Chaney crossed .34 seconds ahead of Pascoe, with Diehl, Justice Forbes, and Chad Earnst rounding out the top five.

Stephen Wurtzer received the Legends hard charger award ($50 gift card to Advanced Auto Parts) provided by Brian Blank. Wurtzer started 21st and finished 12th.

Heats for the 23 Legends were won by Chaney, Pascoe, and Diehl.

The 15-lap limited stock feature was also a wild one, with Matt Chronister dropping from the field while leading on lap 11 and brother Jason Chronister slowing while leading on the final turn.

Picking up his ninth career win was Robbie Carroll, who also won by .34 seconds. Chronister was able to hang on to second, with Justin Wagaman, Charles Millender, and Terry Hartlaub completing the top five.

Qualifiers for the 20 limited stocks were won by Chad Weaver and Jason Chronister.
