Troutman stays in Victory Lane
BEDFORD — The racing weather in Bedford Friday night was winter-like cold, but Dave Troutman was hot for 25 laps.
Troutman, who waited a decade between Bedford feature wins before scoring last week, jumped back in only seven days later to score again in Friday night action.
The recent pair of wins doubled Troutman’s career total to four late model wins at the track, the other both coming in late 2007.
In other action, first time winners reigned as Kyle Ganoe scored his first career 305 win and Troy Johnson took the EMod event. Josh Frankenberry took the pure stock event before Wayne Brenize ended his short retirement with a four-cylinder win.
Mechanicsburg — Brock Zearfoss of Jonestown picked up his first win of the season Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway, claiming $3,600 in the 410 sprint car feature while Chase Dietz picked up the win in the 358 sprint main event.
Port Royal — Scott Bloomquist of Mooresburg, Tennessee, continued his hot streak on the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series by winning Sunday Night’s Rumble by the River at Port Royal Speedway.
Bloomquist took the lead on lap two of the 50-lapper and never looked back in scoring his series all-time leading 88th win, worth $10,000.
Bloomquist also moved to within five victories of his 600th career victory as his second LOLMDS win in the last three series races was the 595th of his Hall-of-Fame career.
On Saturday, more than 90 total sprint cars filled the pits at Port Royal Speedway for Open Wheel Madness featuring action for the 410 sprints, URC Sprints and the 305 sprint cars.
Winners on the night were Brock Zearfoss in 410s, Kyle Smith in 305s and Lucas Wolfe in URC for what was a photo finish.
SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY: Mark Smith of Sunbury held off the hard-charging Freddie Rahmer of Salfordville for the victory in Sunday night’s suspenseful 30-lap Ray Tilley Classic for 410 sprint cars at Selinsgrove Speedway.
Kyle Bachman of Selinsgrove inherited the lead from opening night winner Tommy Slanker of York and went on to win the 15-lap pro stock main event.
Keith Bissinger of Orangeville scored his first win of the season in the 12-lap roadrunner feature by holding off last week’s winner Ryan Zook of Mifflintown.
LINCOLN SPEEDWAY: Danny Dietrich started outside the polesitter Glenndon Forsythe for the start of the 25-lap $3,500-to-win 410 sprint feature, grabbed the lead at the drop of the green, and withstood the challenges of last week’s feature winner Freddie Rahmer for 24 laps to pick up his 40th career win at the Pigeon Hills oval, placing him in a tie with Lance Dewease for eighth all time.
PATH VALLEY: Dillan Stake won the late model race over Wesley Bonebrake with a last lap pass coming down the front stretch on the high side winning by only 0.0037 seconds. Saturday night in the wingless 600cc micros Kenny Murray won over Gunnar Layton by only 0.65 of a second.
