Craig Myers Wins 1st Career Gobrecht Memorial at TW

HANOVER, Pa.:Craig Myers missed his Friday night visits to Trail-Way Speedway, so he came out of retirement and got back in the seat for the 2020 season.

But that wasn’t the only reason. Myers had some unfinished business in the 270 Micro Sprint division: He wanted to win the Kevin Gobrecht Memorial National Open.

Cross one off the bucket list. Myers took the lead from Mike Rutherford to capture the 30-lap extravaganza. He earned $1,000 for his first Gobrecht Memorial victory.

“I always wanted one of these,” Myers said. “So, I came out of retirement, and I told the wife I got to win now. This is the one I want.

“I have to thank my Dad, my Mom, and my brother for letting me run another car. Other than that, when you come out of retirement, you don’t have anybody backing you.”

Myers finished third in the Dash, which gave him a good spot in the feature event. Pole-sitter Mike Rutherford jumped out front early after setting quick time and winning the Dash. Before he could complete a lap, Brock Whisler, Tim McClelland, and Brittany Zeller got together in Turn 1.

Rutherford, the 2019 winner of the event, took the lead on the complete restart. Myers settled into second, but the pace was slowed on the third circuit when Andrew Dietrich stopped in Turn 1.

Myers didn’t go away on the restart. He stalked Rutherford, remaining less than a half-second back through the halfway point of the race.

Lapped traffic started to come into play for the leaders on Lap 20. Myers, of Chambersburg, Pa., closed to within .325 seconds, but the backmarker of Jon Williams was in his path, and the leaders had to split Williams on the frontstretch to complete the 21stcircuit.

Myers closed the gap to .203 seconds on Lap 25. Two laps later, Rutherford got held up by a lapped car, which allowed Myers to duck to the bottom and take the lead.

The only thing that slowed Myers’ pace was a caution on Lap 28 for Mike Boer, who stopped in Turn 3. That set up a three-lap dash to the finish.

“It’s always better to have a clean track in front of you, and I was getting through lapped traffic really good,” Myers said. “He was opening holes, and I was right there.

“We were really good. I knew I was just as good as he was, we just needed the opportunity. Mike’s a Hell of a driver, probably the best around. When you can beat him, you had a good night.”

On the restart, it was all Myers. He was never challenged over the last three laps and took the win by .818. Rutherford settled for second, with Toby Blumenshine, Cory Myers, and Jesse Hare completing the top five.

Rutherford set quick time with a lap of 15.662. Tim McClelland was the Donahue Motorsports/RTS Chassis Hard Charger Award winner.

In 600 Micro Sprint action, Dylan Anderson made his first ever race at Trail-Way Speedway count by claiming the 30-Lap main event worth $800.

Anderson lined up fourth on the grid and stayed in the mix. Bradley Weber, started on the pole and led through Lap 9. One lap later, Weber was hit by the lapped car of Connor Bollinger, which sent the leader spinning in Turn 2. Anderson inherited the top spot after the incident.

The only thing that slowed Anderson from there was a pair of caution periods. Still, the rest of the field didn’t have a chance, and Anderson, of Three Springs, Pa., took the win by 1.742 seconds.

Jesse Snyder, Rodney Westhafer, Mike Rutherford, and Trent Yoder completed the top five. Travis Keiser was quick time on the night with a lap of 14.995. Randy Kunkle Jr. was named Donahue Motorsports/RTS Chassis Hard Charger.

Bill Diehl, of Wrightsville, Pa., took the win in the 25-Lap Gene Latta Ford Central PA Legends presented by Harvest Chapel main event. It was his 11thcareer Trail-Way victory, which is tops on the all-time win list.

Diehl led the entire race distance, holding off Travis Perry, Chris Transeau, Seth Kearchner, and Logan Carbaugh at the stripe. Cody Altland picked up the DREAMscape Landscaping Hard Charger Award for advancing 10 positions in only his fourth race.
