ALAN KRIMES WINS FEATURE, CLAIMS SECOND TRACK TITLE AT LINCOLN SPEEDWAY

Denver’s Alan Krimes added an exclamation point to his second track title in three years by claiming the 25-lap “410” sprint car feature win at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

And he did it in dramatic fashion, coming from 11th starting spot through a stacked field to take the lead from Brandon Rahmer with two laps to go.

Polesitter Matt Boland led the first 13 laps from the pole before fifth-starting Brandon Rahmer took the lead on a 14th-lap restart. Meanwhile, Krimes was methodically working through the field and was running fourth at the time. He moved past Boland into the runner-up spot on lap 17.

“We got going real good there on the bottom at one point in the race, and it seemed like we picked off a bunch of them,” said Krimes in victory lane, “Then we had that yellow and I restarted fourth, and I thought with those guys running the top I should go to the bottom and drive through there. But on the bottom for the restart I was junk. Then another yellow came out and I rolled the wing back a little bit. Then the car was pretty good around the bottom and I got into second.”

“I was gaining on Brandon a little bit and I was trying to watch the scoreboard because I knew the laps were winding down,” continued Krimes, “I thought I might get one shot at him. When we came up on the lapped car I think Brandon got up over the cushion or something and I was able to slip between him and the lapped car coming off turn four. It’s not a move you can pull off very often, but that was all it took.”

Once in front, Krimes took the checkered two laps later by 1.25 seconds over Rahmer, with 10th-starting Brian Montieth, Austin Hogue, and Gerard McIntyre, Jr. completing the top five. Sixth through tenth were Jim Siegel, Kyle Moody, 14th-starting Cory Haas, Freddie Rahmer, and Tim Wagaman.

Heats for the 25 410 Sprints were won by Glenndon Forsythe, Billy Dietrich, and Montieth.

KRIMES WINS FIRST NIGHT OF LINCOLN/TRAIL-WAY/SUSQUEHANNA 410 SPRNT SHOOTOUT

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 7/9/2016 – Alan Krimes took home the $4,000 winner’s share after winning the regularly-scheduled show, which was night number-one of the Lincoln/Trail-Way/Susquehanna 410 Sprint Car Shootout. 

Ryan led the first 23 laps from his pole position, before the Wayne Corini CPA/Abe Service Company #87 slid under Smith for the race-winning pass in heavy lapped traffic exiting turns three and four of the 24th lap. 

“I saw Hodnett was making up ground on the bottom, and I figured it was going to lay rubber sometime during the feature,” said the 2014 Lincoln champ and current points leader in victory lane, “It was just a matter of moving down at the right time and finding it. Adam was down there, too, and we were running the 94 down. Those two guys got to racing and that’s what I needed. They slid each other and I could really gain on them when they were doing that. I finally got him after the caution came out.”

 “Ryan’s a good racer and he moved down and got away from me a little bit,” said Krimes, “But when we got lapped cars, he tried to go around one of them and I was close enough with a real small strip of rubber there. He missed it and started humming, and that was opening I needed to sneak back by him.”

Krimes pulled away from Smith to take the checkered flag 1.44 seconds ahead of the Warko #94. Third through fifth were Hodnett, Adam Wilt, and Danny Dietrich.

Rounding out the top ten were Cory Haas, Tim Wagaman, Freddie Rahmer, Jim Siegel, and Scott Fisher.

Heats for the 32 410 Sprints on hand for the regularly scheduled show were won by Haas, Smith, Krimes, and Gerard McIntyre, Jr. winning the consolation.

Fast time in time trials for the regularly scheduled show was set again by Hodnett with a one-lap time of 13.433-seconds (100.499 MPH).

NEVER TOO EARLY TO TITLE CHASE, ALAN KRIMES IN THE HUNT AT LINCOLN

DENVER, Pa. (April 28, 2016) – The season is young, but positioning is everything. Alan Krimes, a former Lincoln Speedway 410 track champion, will enter the last weekend of April well within reach of the top of the Lincoln Speedway standings. After a series of strong finishes in the Pigeon Hills, resulting in five top-ten finishes, three of which inside the top-five, the Denver, Pennsylvania, native has positioned himself second in the championship hunt, only ten points behind Jim Siegel. Krimes has finished as high as second during feature competition at the “Fabulous” Lincoln Speedway in 2016, advancing from tenth on the grid on April 16.

“We still have a long season ahead of us, but we definitely want to have the advantage leading into the last half of the year,” said Alan Krimes. “It’s always tough to talk about championships in April, but it all starts this time of the year. You never want to find yourself buried.”

Alan Krimes will continue his 2016 Central Pennsylvania campaign with a potential three-race weekend this Friday through Sunday, April 29 – May 1. Krimes, pilot of the Wayne Corini CPA, Krimes Racing Engines, VRP Shocks, Abe Service Company, Glick’s Auto Body & Towing, Roadrunner Race Fuels, No. 87, will visit Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg on Friday night, April 29, followed by a trip back to Lincoln Speedway in the Pigeon Hills on Saturday evening, April 30. Lincoln Speedway will host the 13th annual Weldon Sterner Memorial, awarding a $6,900 top prize after 33 laps of feature action.

Although plans for Sunday still stand uncertain, the potential plan is to visit Path Valley Speedway Park in Spring Run for the $4,000-to-win, “Party at the Path.” The May 1 program will be the first of three Fred Rahmer promoted 410 events at Path Valley in 2016.

“We haven’t decided on Sunday just yet,” said Alan Krimes. “We have some other things planned for Sunday. If we have a solid weekend up until that point, we may decide to head over there. We’ll wait and see what happens. I just want to take a minute to thank all of our sponsors. We are a family-owned operation, so their help and support keeps us well prepared and competitive. We appreciate everything.”

ALAN KRIMES EARNS BACK-TO-BACK TOP-FIVE FINISHES IN “POSSE COUNTRY”

DENVER, Pa. (April 4, 2016) – “Super” Alan Krimes proved once again that he is always in the hunt, no matter where the driver of the familiar No. 87 is scheduled to start. The Denver, Pennsylvania, native certainly proved that theory correct during the recent weekend; earning back-to-back top-five finishes in “Posse Country,” including a fourth place finish at Lincoln Speedway on Saturday, April 2, after starting on the inside of row eight. Krimes now has two top-five finishes on the season at the “Fabulous” Lincoln Speedway and will enter the upcoming weekend currently fourth in the track championship chase.

“We had a good car on Saturday night,” explained Alan Krimes, the 2014 Lincoln Speedway track champion. “We had a little bit of help along the way with some guys not finishing who started in front of us, but we kept ourselves out of trouble and moved forward the entire race. If we want to keep ourselves in the championship hunt, we’ll need to stay consistent. It says a lot about this race team when we can advance that far in just 25 laps.”

Alan Krimes, pilot of the Wayne Corini, Krimes Racing Engines, VRP Shocks, Abe Service Company, Glick’s Auto Body & Towing, Roadrunner Race Fuels, No. 87, kicked-off the recent weekend with a runner-up performance at the Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, April 1, after starting third on the feature grid. The night ignited with a charge from seventh to fourth during heat race competition, automatically qualifying Krimes for the feature redraw. The runner-up finish was his best of the season thus far at Williams Grove Speedway.

The upcoming weekend will be more than busy, as Krimes plans to compete in three consecutive events at three different facilities. Alan Krimes will visit Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, April 8, followed by a trip back to the Lincoln Speedway on Saturday night, April 9. The upcoming triple-header weekend will conclude with a visit to the Susquehanna Speedway near York Haven, Pennsylvania, on Sunday, April 10. The newly renovated Susquehanna Speedway will host the 410 sprinters for the first time in 2016 on Sunday night, the first of seven total appearances this season.

“We always look forward to big weekends,” said Alan Krimes. “Hopefully we can keep up our consistency and earn three solid finishes. We are all pretty anxious to visit Susquehanna Speedway on Sunday. We’ve heard great things about what they’ve done to the place over the last few months. I’m excited to get there and see all of the changes. I want to take the time to thank all of our sponsors again. We have some new supporters in 2016. Their help allows us to participate in three-race weekends like the one coming up.”

SPRINT CAR DRIVER ALAN KRIMES STRETCHING THE DOLLAR AGAIN IN 2016, PLANS 65 TO 70 RACE SCHEDULE

  Sprint Car driver Alan Krimes knows how to stretch his racing dollar. He's been doing it his entire career.

And yet, Krimes has been able to compete against the best. He wins a few races a year and is known for his consistency.

Krimes will be looking for similar results in 2016. Despite a limited budget and only having one sponsor, the Denver driver plans to run a full schedule with weekly stops at Williams Grove and Lincoln Speedway, as well as shows at Susquehanna Speedway.

"Right now, that is what we are planning," Krimes, 36, said. "We will also run Grandview and Path Valley. Nothing is changing, but it's all tentative.

"We haven't found new sponsors, and it depends on how good we run. If we run good, we will make it. If we crash or have motor issues, then we will cut back to time trial races at the Grove.

"It helps that Susquehanna has seven or eight races. We would like to run 65 to 70 shows this season."

Survive is more like it.

It doesn't take much to burn through the Sprint Car racing wallet. Even the well-funded teams struggle at times.

Motors are the major expense. Krimes, who indicated that some teams are spending $70,000 for a good power plant, gets around it by building his own with father/car-owner Larry Krimes. But even that takes a toll.

"It's really difficult," Krimes said. "It's a money issue more than anything. I mean, $70,000 for a motor, that's our budget for the whole year.

"We do the best we can with what we have. I've really never won with a lot of money, so I don't know what it feels like."

The offseason didn't help the cause.

Crew chief Dennis Kohler moved over to the Mark Coldren-owned team and will be turning the wrenches for Doug Esh. That's a huge loss.

Krimes also inquired with a couple other teams. In each case, he was beat out by a driver bringing more than talent to the team.

"The people that got the rides brought money," Krimes said. "That's what it comes down to nowadays.

"It's really frustrating. I've done pretty well with not having a high budget team. I've won a lot more races than some of the people in those cars, but it doesn't matter. I understand it, but it's still frustrating."

It won't stop Krimes from moving forward. Not after winning over 20 races at Williams Grove and Lincoln combined, plus the 2014 Lincoln Speedway title, in his current situation.

For Krimes, it's business as usual in hopes of adding to his win total and completing the entire 2016 season as scheduled.

"It's tough losing Dennis," Krimes said. "I feel he helped us out over the years, especially at Williams Grove.

"We might suffer there, but not as much at Lincoln. If we start struggling, we might look to bring someone on. Hopefully, he will come cheap."

KRIMES ENDS YEAR WITH TWO VICTORIES AND NATIONAL OPEN TOP-TEN

Denver, PA (November 11, 2015) – “Super” Alan Krimes concluded his 2015 campaign with a level of success nearly matching that of his 2014 season. The defending Lincoln Speedway 410 track champion returned to weekly competition in the Pigeon Hills in 2015, set to defend his 2014 title. Krimes finished just shy of a second consecutive championship, ending the year second in the final Lincoln Speedway standings, earning one feature victory along the way, as well as nine top-five and 17 top-ten finishes. The Denver, Pennsylvania, native also found victory lane at the Williams Grove Speedway during his 2015 trek through central Pennsylvania, ending his championship hunt at the paperclip ninth in the final standings.

“We had our share of good moments this season, just wish we had a few more of them” said Alan Krimes, “I’m proud of what we’ve accomplished. We learn more and more each year and that is most important. We’ll have a similar game plan next year and try to move in on another track championship.”

Alan Krimes wrapped up his 2015 season on an impressive note; earning a top-ten finish against the “Greatest Show On Dirt” at Williams Grove Speedway. The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series invaded the Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, half-mile for the final time in 2015 on October 1-3, ready to do battle against the “Pennsylvania Posse” during another edition of the National Open. Despite rain plaguing the weekend, the 48 sprint cars entered finally saw the racing surface on Sunday evening, October 4. Alan Krimes not only qualified for the $50,000-to-win, National Open main event, but rallied from the sixth row to finish seventh at the final checkers; his second top-ten finish against the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series in 2015. His first top-ten feat occurred back on May 13 during the Gettysburg Clash at Abbottstown’s Lincoln Speedway, charging forward from outside the top-ten to finish seventh.

“We held our own against the Outlaws on a few occasions this season” Krimes said, “I think we were capable of finishing higher if we would have been in better starting positions. That is something we’ll keep working on for the future. I just want to thank all of those who supported this 87 team all year. We have some great people involved with this race team…we couldn’t do it without them.”

News regarding the 2016 season will be released in the near future. As of now, it will be business as usual for the Wayne Corini CPA, Krimes Racing Engines, VRP Shocks, No. 87 team; planning a schedule around weekly competition at Williams Grove Speedway and Lincoln Speedway.

FULL LABOR DAY WEEKEND SLATE FOR ALAN KRIMES

Denver, PA (September 3, 2015) – Alan Krimes will stay plenty active during the long, holiday weekend as the Denver, Pennsylvania native preps to take part in three consecutive events on September 4 through September 6. Krimes, a two-time main event winner in central Pennsylvania thus far in 2015, will chase feature victories at Williams Grove Speedway and Lincoln Speedway during the upcoming weekend, beginning with the $6,000-to-win “Jack Gunn Memorial” on Friday, September 4, at Williams Grove Speedway.

“We are looking forward to the weekend” said Krimes, “We’ve been showing some speed this year, we just need to capitalize on it a little more often. Had some tough nights recently, but we always find a way to bounce back. We’ll work to get a win this weekend.”

On Saturday, September 5, Alan Krimes will visit the Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, Pennsylvania and enter the last point race of the 2015 season. Krimes, the 2014 Lincoln Speedway “410” track champion, will enter the final point event, the J.L. Howard Memorial, second in the updated standings. The pilot of the Wayne Corini, CPA, Krimes Racing Engines, VRP Shocks, #87 is 325 markers behind point leader Brian Montieth and 360 points ahead of Cory Haas who is third in the current championship. Just making an appearance on Saturday should be enough to solidify Krimes as the 2015 Lincoln Speedway runner-up.

“We are happy with our season at Lincoln, just a little disappointed that we didn’t defend our title” explained Krimes, “We were missing a little bit of consistency that we had last year. To enter the final week of points with nine top-five and 16 top-ten finishes is still pretty special.”

ALAN KRIMES WILL DRIVE FOR ED AIKIN DURING PORT ROYAL “DREAM RACE” WEEKEND BEGINS AT “THE GROVE” ON FRIDAY, AUGUST 7

Denver, PA (August 6, 2015) – Lincoln Speedway regular Alan Krimes will test different waters during the upcoming weekend; set to visit Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal, Pennsylvania for the first time in 2015. Krimes, the 2014 Lincoln Speedway track champion, will enter the annual “Living Legends Dream Race” on Saturday, August 8, at Port Royal’s “Speed Palace,” eager to pilot the Ed Aikin owned “7” machine for the first time. The newly paired duo will attempt to snag a large portion of the $80,000 total purse up for grabs on Saturday night.

“Ed and I have known each other for a while” explained Krimes, “Ed raced a lot of “360” stuff and he recently purchased a 410ci engine. Ed asked me if I was interested in driving his car this weekend at Port Royal, so I told him I would. It’s an awesome opportunity. A big purse up for grabs this weekend during their dream race so we’ll try to capitalize on that. I’ve never had a ton of luck up there. Hopefully we can fix that on Saturday.”

“Super” Alan Krimes will drive his own Wayne Corini, Krimes Racing Engines, VRP Shocks, #87 this Friday night, August 7, at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. “The Grove” will feature a regular “410” program. Krimes is a one-time feature winner at the world famous dirt oval in 2015 and is currently seventh in the point standings.

Denver, PA (July 11th, 2015) – ‘Super’ Alan Krimes earned his second ‘410’ sprint car victory of the 2015 season on Friday evening, July 10th; crushing the field at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania by roughly eight seconds.

The Denver, Pennsylvania native earned the non-stop feature win over Lance Dewease, Steve Buckwalter, Tim Glatfelter, and Lucas Wolfe.

“We were really good” said Krimes, “We were able to run right around the top mostly and really make speed. I could make the car do whatever I wanted. Just really comfortable to drive. Feels great to get another one. Things have been tough on us in some respect so this really helps bring all of our spirits up.”  

Alan Krimes will work for season win number three later tonight, Saturday, July 11th, at the Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, Pennsylvania. ‘National Fallen Firefighters Night’ is on tap in the Pigeon Hills; honoring the late Brandon Little.

“SUPERMAN” ALAN KRIMES WINS WILLIAMS GROVE SPRINTS

Mechanicsburg – “Superman” Alan Krimes scored an annihilating sprint car victory at Williams Grove Speedwya on Friday night, taking his first oval win of the year by 8.403 seconds in the 25-lap 410 sprint car main.

Tim Glatfelter led from the outset of the 410 sprint main from the second starting spot while Lance Dewease worked to take second from Daryl Stimeling.

Krimes started fifth in the field and drove into fourth with four laps down.

Krimes used the outside lane to move to the front and get by Brent Marks for third with five away before changing lanes to the bottom to run down leaders Glatfelter and Dewease.

It took several laps for him to track down the front duo before driving by Dewease on the 11th tour and then biting fast to pass Glatfelter two laps later.

Once in front, Krimes just continued to stretch his lead, finishing nearly a full half lap ahead of Dewease to record the fifth win of his career at the track.

“When the track gets really wide like this, our car works really well,” Krimes said in victory lane. 

Seventh starter Steve Buckwalter moved steadily to the front during the race, making it a three-car race for second during the final five laps. 

Dewease eventually secured second with Buckwalter getting by Glatfelter for third. 

Glatfelter finished fourth followed by Lucas Wolfe. 

Sixth through 10th went to Danny Dietrich, a fading Brent Marks, Austin Hogue, Brock Zearfoss and Brian Montieth.

Heats went to Buckwalter, Marks and Stimeling.

KRIMES SURVIVES WILD LINCOLN HILLY RIFE MEMORIAL TO CLAIM $5,000 TOP PRIZE

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 5/23/2015 - Just another night of professional auto racing at the fabulous Lincoln Speedway.

 
Krimes capitalized on a late-race spin by leader Danny Dietrich to score his first win of the season in the 30-lap Hilly Rife Memorial on Saturday.
 
"I don't know what to say," said Krimes upon exiting the family-owned Kimmet Construction/Wayne Carini #87 in victory lane after scoring his first win of the season and claiming the $5,000 top prize, "I think Danny had it won there. He got around us early on and we were racing pretty hard. He got in front of us and don't think I had anything for him. You don't see that (Dietrich¡¯s spin) very often. He and the 21 have been far and away the two fastest cars, and I think Brian was behind me ­those two guys have been real fast and we just haven't been able to keep up with them. But we were pretty good tonight."
 
Krimes restarted ninth (up two spots) for a complete restart following a spectacular opening lap crash that saw the sprinters of fourth-starting Brandon Rahmer and 20th-starting Robbie Kendall flip in turn one. Also involved were Glenndon Forsythe and Gerard McIntyre, Jr. All four drivers were uninjured, but they were all done for the night.
 
Krimes moved into the top five on an 11th lap restart following a spin by fourth-place Matt Boland in turn four.
 
He caught Scott Fisher for fourth on lap 14, and was still running there when Dietrich spun and collected third-place Adam Wilt in turn four of lap 27. Glatfelter, who was running second, and Krimes assumed first and second, and Krimes wasted no time driving around Glatfelter for the lead in the first two turns of the restart.
 
"The track was a little wider tonight, and that played into our hand a little bit. Once I saw Danny spin out and collect Adam, I knew we were second at the time. I had about three more inches on my wing, so I pulled it the whole way back and just held on from there."
 
Krimes' final margin of victory was 1.53 seconds over Glatfelter, with 13th-starting Brian Montieth, Niki Young, and 17th-starting Tyler Ross completing the top five. Sixth through tenth were 23rd-starting Jim Siegel, Freddie Rahmer (who came from the rear after a mid-race spin), Steve Owings, 24th-starting Chase Dietz, and Cory Haas.
 
Heats for the 31 410 sprinters were won by Haas, Owings, and Young, with Tim Wagaman winning the consolation.

ALAN KRIMES WINS SPRINT SPRING CHAMPIONSHIP AT LINCOLN SPEEDWAY FOR SECOND WIN IN-A-ROW

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 4/19/2014 – Alan Krimes summed it up best in victory lane Saturday night at Lincoln Speedway.

“I don’t know if I won that race or just didn’t lose it,” said Krimes after climbing from his Midnight Antiques, Conestoga Valley Garage, Krimes Racing Engines No. 87. Sprinter in victory lane following his win in the 30-lap 410 Sprint car Spring Championship.

It was a race that saw several red flags and in one lap that saw nine of the top 10 running cars dropping from contention due to various reasons. But Krimes missed all of the crashes and won the battle of attrition to score his second straight victory in as many weeks and upped his career total to 15 in the Pigeon Hills.

“I thought it was going to be pretty tough starting back there tonight because I knew the best we could start was 12th and ended up starting 13tth,” said Krimes. “Then everybody started dropping out and I thought we might not have to pass any cars tonight if they all keep dropping out.”

All of the craziness started on lap five when Steve Owings spun, collecting Nathan Berwager, and Brian Montieth who flipped. Aaron Ott also flipped in turn three after a reported stuck throttle.

On the restart, Tim Wagaman and Adam Wilt tangled collecting point leader Danny Dietrich, who did everything but flip on the front stretch.

Second-place running Billy Dietrich then stopped on the next restart which made him the ninth car inside the top 10 to drop out. That left only Will Rose, who had led the race from the green flag, the lone top 10 car on the track.

When the dust settled, Krimes, Jim Siegel, Brent Marks and Robbie Kendall all entered the top five with Krimes storming by Rose to take the lead with six laps complete.

Krimes continued to lead Siegel as the pair closed on lapped traffic when Tyler Ross and Wilt tangled in turn three right in front of the leaders. Siegel took evasive action to miss the incident but Marks wasn’t as lucky and spun into Wilt.

Montieth advanced through the field after his flip to move into the top five on lap 18 and then took fourth on the next circuit. But that would be as far as Montieth, the four-time track champion, would make it as Krimes held off Siegel in heavy lapped traffic over the final few laps to pick up the win.

“We made a few changes under that one red and freed the car up a little bit but we could have been better,” said the Denver driver after earning the $4,000 paycheck. “Our car has been real good every time out it seems so we’re hoping for a good season. I don’t know that I’ve ever won two in-a-row, and like I said, I don’t know that we would have won tonight if everyone wouldn’t have had problems so we got lucky.”

Siegel finished in the runner-up spot ahead of Kendall, Montieth and Gerard McIntyre, Jr.

Kevin Nagy crossed in sixth with Freddie Rahmer getting his best career finish in seventh over Danny Dietrich, Austin Hogue and Cory Haas.

Sprint car heat races were won by Siegel, Dietrich and Ott with Marks topping the consolation for the 29 car field.

KRIMES TEAM CHANGES “EVERYTHING BUT THE DRIVER,” WINS LINCOLN 410 SPRINT CAR MAIN

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 4/12/2014 – He gone! That’s the catch phrase Alan Krimes and his followers use when Alan Krimes starts putting his competitors behind him. And he did it short order in Saturday’s ARCH Night 25-lap 410 sprint car feature.

“I have to thank Dennis Kohler,” said Krimes upon exiting his Midnight Antiques/Conestoga Valley Garage/Krimes Racing Engines #87 in victory lane, “He changed everything but the driver there before the feature, and he must have found something.”

Touché. Krimes started ninth, crossed fifth at the end of the first lap, and passed outside front row started Kevin Nagy for second on lap three. At the time, polesitter Tyler Ross held a 1.16-second lead, which was quickly erased by Krimes over the next three laps.

“I knew starting on the bottom was going to be the key,” said Krimes,” The top was real dirty and it was hard to run up there. I got a real good start and I thought we’d be in pretty good shape. I got up to second there pretty quick. The 92 was going pretty good, and he just slipped in turn four and allowed me to sneak underneath him.”

Krimes caught Ross in turns one and two of the sixth lap, and led until eighth-starting Brian Montieth passed him in lapped traffic exiting turn four of lap 22. Heading into the very next turns, Montieth lost the handle and spun out, handing the lead back over to Krimes. No one was more surprised than Krimes himself.

“We came up on a lapped car running on the bottom, and I made up my mind to go to the top to get around him,” said Krimes, “I almost spun out, and Brian got back by me and I turned and got back underneath him going into one, and the yellow came out. I thought ‘Dang it!’ He had me at the line and they’re going to put him back in front of me. I came back around, and he was sitting there, so we lucked out. He would’ve been tough to get by.”

Robbie Kendall inherited second for the restart, but was never able to challenge Krimes, who crossed 1.34 second in front for his 14th career Lincoln win. In doing so, he became the fourth winner in as many races in 2014.

Danny Dietrich came from tenth starting spot to catch last week’s feature winner Jimmy Siegel for third with a lap to go. Siegel, who started 12th, settled for fourth, with Nagy fifth. Sixth through tenth were hard charger Cory Hass (who started 15th), Glenndon Forsythe, Lance Dewease, Ross, and Adam Wilt.

Heats for the 29 410 sprinters were won by Nagy, Austin Hogue, and Forsythe, with Gerard McIntyre, Jr. winning the consolation.

Sometimes, it’s just your night. And race number two of Pennsylvania Speedweek belonged to Alan Krimes at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

Krimes turned fourth-quick time and finished fourth in his heat. Both Stevie Smith and Fred Rahmer finished in to top two of their heat, putting Krimes into the inversion for the feature. When Smith picked pill number four for the inversion, Krimes found himself on the pole for the “A” Main.

And he didn’t waste the opportunity, outrunning 168-time Lincoln winner and 13-time Speedweek champion Rahmer to the first turn and leading every lap of the 30-lap, $5,000-to-win event for his third Lincoln win of the year.

Lapped traffic also played into his favor in the feature.

“I was pretty good on the top early,” said Krimes upon exiting his Conestoga Valley Garage/Krimes Racing Engines #87 in victory lane, “And then that yellow came out and I wasn’t as good on the top. I kinda stayed up there, but once I got around lapped cars that were running the bottom I moved down, and I felt a little bit better down there.”

The bottom was where Rahmer was running, and although he couldn’t catch Krimes, he did complete a solid run to continue his string of top ten finishes in every race he’s run this year. Krimes’ final margin of victory in his 13th career Lincoln win was 3.28 seconds.

“If Stevie and Rahmer don’t finish first or second in their heat, we have no chance,” continued Krimes, “I knew it was gonna be tough to run first or second in our heat with Siegel and Lasoski and Hodnett all ahead of us. I’ve never been more happy to see Fred Rahmer finish second in his heat! I was sitting in the car getting ready to go out for our heat, and they told me he got second...and then he was back to third...and then he got Marks back, and I was pretty happy in the car.”

Third through fifth were Stevie Smith, Brian Montieth, and 16th-starting Lance Dewease, who caught Adam Wilt as the two passed under the white flag. Seventh through tenth behind Wilt were Sam Hafertepe, Jr., Brent Marks, 21st-starting Cory Haas, and Jim Siegel.

Heats for the Sprinters were won by Montieth, Wilt, Danny Dietrich, and Siegel, with Nicole Bower winning the B-Main.

Fast time in time trials over the 36-car field was set by Stevie Smith with a one-lap time of 13.251-seconds (101.879 MPH).

KRIMES BLOWS AWAY FIELD AND PICKS UP $5,000 TOP PRIZE IN LINCOLN ALL-STAR MAIN

There was no lack of talent in Saturday night’s All-Star Circuit of Champions “A” Main at Lincoln Speedway, but none of them were a match for Denver’s Alan Krimes, who dominated en route to a four-second win and the $5,000 top prize.

After finishing second in the dash, Krimes started beside Stevie Smith on the front row. He beat Smith to the first turn and was never seriously challenged.

“Getting him (Smith) on the start was everything there. I was actually surprised I could turn in off his right rear and pass him down there,” said Krimes upon exiting his Conestoga Valley Garage #87 in victory lane, “That was the biggest move of the race as far as I’m concerned. Getting ahead of Stevie, because he’s a hell of a driver.”

“My goal is to win a World of Outlaw show and an All-Star show, and I’m half-way,” quipped Krimes, “You’re never sure how far you are ahead of everybody else when you’re running out there. We were getting through lapped traffic pretty good, and I knew somebody else was going to have to be really good to beat us.”

“We actually started slowing down there at the end,” said Krimes, “But I was hoping I had enough of lead to hold them off at the end.”

Krimes didn’t know that everyone else was slowing down at the end, too. Krimes maintained a three-to-four second lead over the entire second half of the 30-lap event.

If Krimes was half of the show, Danny Dietrich was the other half. Dietrich started sixth after finishing last in the dash, and bounced off the second turn wall several times in catching Lance Dewease for third on lap 18 and Smith for the runner-up spot on lap 22.

“Danny must have been real good,” added Krimes, “The track was pretty tough to pass on. To come from sixth to second was a great job.” The last 24 laps of the race went non-stop, with the only caution of the night for a spin by Steve Storrie and Greg Hodnett after colliding in turn one of lap six.

Smith settled for third, with Dewease and tenth-starting Fred Rahmer completing the top five. Rahmer, the current Central PA and Lincoln point series leader, continued his amazing streak of top-ten finishes, which now sits at 28 straight races.

Sixth through tenth were Tim Shaffer, Brent Marks, Dale Blaney, Jim Siegel, and Aaron Ott.

Heats were won by Gerard McIntyre, Jr., Jac Haudenschild, Nicole Bower, and Brian Montieth. Dale Blaney won the B-Main while Stevie Smith won the Dash. Fast time in time trials over the 35-car field was set by Shaffer with a one-lap time of 13.286-seconds (101.611 MPH).

By Tyler Altmeyer: ‘FullyInjected.com 

Denver, PA (June 1st, 2013) – Alan Krimes earned his second ‘410’ sprint car victory of the 2013 season on Friday evening, May 31st, at the Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. Krimes, who pilots the familiar Conestoga Valley Garage no. 87 ‘410’ sprint car, started on the pole of Friday night’s 25-lap, $4,000-to-win ‘410’ main event; and held off late race charges by Rick Lafferty and Fred Rahmer to earn his third career Williams Grove Speedway sprint car win. The Denver, Pennsylvania native celebrated his win by donating  an amount of money that equaled the evening’s 50/50 winnings to the recent victims of the Oklahoma tornado tragedy. Williams Grove Speedway hosted ‘Charity Night’ on May 31st at the racetrack; allowing the ‘410’ feature winner to donate an amount of money equaling the evening’s 50/50 drawing to a charity of his or her choice. The healthy donation was $997. Lafferty, Rahmer, Kreitz and Hodnett rounded out the top five on Friday evening at Williams Grove Speedway.

Alan Krimes, and the entire Conestoga Valley Garage no. 87 program, will be back in action later this evening, Saturday, June 1st, at the ‘Fabulous’ Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, Pennsylvania.

ALAN KRIMES WITH BACK-TO-BACK TOP FIVE FINISHES IN CENTRAL PA

By Tyler Altmeyer: FullyInjected.com
Denver, PA (April 29th, 2013) – Alan Krimes has been a ‘man on a mission’ lately in Central Pennsylvania. Not only is the Denver, Pennsylvania native on an impressive roll at the Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, Pennsylvania; earning one (1) win, five (5) top five and eight (8) top ten finishes, but the one-time winner already in 2013 finds himself within the top five of the current Central PA sprint car standings.

The former Williams Grove Speedway winner finished fifth (5th) in the 30-lap, $5,000-to-win UNOH All Star Circuit of Champions main event at Williams Grove on Friday, April 26th; rallying from an outside sixth row starting position to earn the top five finish. Krimes was forced to do things ‘the hard way’ on Friday evening; as the pilot of the Conestoga Valley Garage ‘87’ was forced to run the evening’s consolation B-main after not transferring through his respective UNOH All Star heat race. Krimes would conquer the 12-lap B-main, and then go on to charge seven positions during the main event to solidify himself inside the top five. Don Kreitz Jr. was the UNOH All Star winner on Friday evening. Forty-three (43) UNOH All Star teams were signed-in on April 26th. Check out the complete rundown at www.allstarsprint.com.

KRIMES CLAIMS 11TH LINCOLN CAREER WIN IN ARCH NIGHT “410” SPRINT CAR MAIN

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA , 4/13/13 – Denver’s Alan Krimes came from seventh starting spot to claim his first win of the year in the 25-lap “410” sprint car feature at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

“We’ve been fast the last three weeks. I thought we had the car to beat last week and the week before that,” said Krimes upon exiting his Conestoga Valley Garage/Krimes Racing Engines #87 in victory lane, “A couple late yellows there killed us. We were lucky enough to get to the front first tonight.”

“The yellows were hurting us again tonight,” added Krimes, “I don’t know if the tires were sealing over or what, but every time the yellow came out, my car would get worse and worse. I know J.J. was behind us, and he’s been going real good pretty much every week. I was hoping there was some lapped cars between me and him, but apparently there wasn’t. We got a restart and I saw his front end down in three and four. I already had the wing all the way back, so I just ran around the top and hoped I didn’t see anybody. Luckily, we came away with it.”

Krimes took to the high side to get around sixth-starting Adam Wilt and fourth-starting J.J. Grasso in the first two turns and cross fifth by the end of the first lap. He then drove by both third-starting Gerard McIntyre, Jr. and fifth-starting Danny Dietrich to move into third following a third-lap restart, and caught second-starting Tim Glatfelter for the runner-up spot on lap four. Two laps later, Krimes grabbed the top spot from polesitter and race-long leader Robbie Kendall with a low-side move in turns three and four.

Though Krimes led the rest of the way, torrid racing between Brian Montieth, Danny Dietrich, and Fred Rahmer for fifth had the fans on their feet between laps nine and 12. It was on that lap that J.J. Grasso re-entered the picture after passing Kendall for second. Caution flags on laps 16 and 18 kept Grasso close until the end.

“There’s a lot of good guys running real good this year. I saw the 25 on the board there, and he’s been tough. I heard he’s going to URC when they start their season, and I’m not going to be sad to see him go!

The 16th-lap caution involved the spinning cars of Brian Montieth, Brent Marks, and Cole Duncan. All three of those drivers have won races at Lincoln in 2013. Montieth and Duncan were unable to continue, and Mark joined the rear. The 18th-lap caution was for the spinning car of Jordan Mackison in turns one and two.

Grasso settled for second, with eighth-starting Jim Siegel coming on strong late in the race to finish third. Rahmer and Kendall completed the top five. Sixth through tenth were Danny Dietrich, 13th-starting Logan Schuchart, Glatfelter, 22nd-starting Billy Dietrich, and Wilt.

Heats for the 26 “410” Sprinters were won by Marks, Duncan, and Montieth, with Jordon Mackison winning the consolation.

KRIMES CLAIMS FIRST LINCOLN WIN OF THE YEAR IN PREMIER AUTOWORKS/AUTO LOCATOR FEATURE

To hear him tell it, Alan Krimes has had a terrible year. His worst ever.

But he was good enough to finish fourth in Lincoln points, and has been in the hunt in most Lincoln features in 2012. Saturday night, Krimes sifted through the leaders to score his first Lincoln win of the year, the tenth of his Lincoln career.

Time trials and a redraw placed Krimes fifth for the start. Third starting Cory Haas became the third different leader of the first lap and led the first 10 laps before second-starting Brent Marks grabbed the lead at the flagstand in heavy lapped traffic to complete lap 11. At the time, Krimes was running fourth behind eighth-starting Danny Dietrich.

Haas began to fade after Marks took the lead and was back to fourth by the end of lap 12. Dietrich and Krimes moved into second and third that lap, and Krimes caught Dietrich for second on lap 15. Krimes then chased down Marks as the leader continued to sort their way through lapped traffic, and took the lead on lap 19.

“That was wild! It went by fast,” said Krimes upon exiting his Conestoga Valley Garage #87 in victory lane, “I knew the laps had to be winding down there…we were racing for the lead…and when I got the lead I saw there was only three or four to go and I thought ‘Wow, that went fast!’ I guess time flies when you’re having fun!”

“We’ve been awful all year everywhere we’ve been,” added Krimes, “We won early at the Grove, and I didn’t think we’d get another win the rest of the year. Those three cars (Dietrich, Haas, and Montieth) have been way better than us all year. We passed two of the three…Brian started behind us…We got by Dietrich and Cory somehow. It feels good to beat all three of those guys, along with a bunch of other guys…Marks has been really fast, too…and once he got in the lead I thought it might be tough to get around him. But once we got into lapped traffic there, it didn’t seem like anybody could roll the bottom in one and two and I wasn’t too bad down there. He (Marks) went to the top in turn four and I got a run on the bottom and made it work.”

From there, he drove away to a 2.33-second win over Marks, with Dietrich, ninth-starting Brian Montieth, and Haas completing the top five. Sixth through tenth were Billy Dietrich, polesitter Brad McClelland, Jim Siegel, 19th-starting Niki Young (driving the John Pinter #92), and Gerard McIntyre, Jr.

Heats for the 410 Sprints were won by Danny Dietrich, Haas, and Kyle Moody. Marks set fast time over the 22-car field with a one lap time of 13.519-seconds (99.859 mph).

ALAN KRIMES EARNS WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY SPRINT CAR WIN

By Todd Heintzelman

It’s one thing to win a sprint car feature at Williams Grove Speedway. It’s another when you win a sprint car feature by passing Brian Montieth and Daryn Pittman.

That’s exactly what Alan Krimes did on Friday night as he earned his first win of the season by passing two of the best in the business. The driver from Denver earned $3,600 in a car owned by his father, Larry.

“The car starting getting better and better when I pulled the wing back a little bit,” said Krimes. “Those are two of the best cars, not only in Pennsylvania, but in the whole country. It feels pretty good to pass them.”

Davey Sammons started on the pole and drove into the early race lead. Pittman started third and drove by Curt Michael and into the runner-up spot.

Pittman shot under Sammons in turn three and was the new leader as they raced off turn four and completed the second lap.

The caution flag flew on lap two when Danny Dietrich slowed to a stop on the frontstretch.

Michael went after Sammons on the restart and the drivers traded the runner-up spot in turn four as Krimes, who started sixth, moved into the picture.

The red flag was displayed on lap three for a multi-car crash on the backstretch. Mark Smith and Fred Rahmer made contact and Smith’s car became disabled.

As cars scattered to avoid Smith, Adam Wilt flipped in the accident, which also included two-time Grove winner Greg Hodnett, Frank Cozze, Ryan Smith and Lance Dewease. No injuries were reported.

Pittman’s lead increased following the restart. Brian Montieth was charging forward from his 11th starting spot and pressured Rahmer for fifth. Doug Esh and Montieth passed Krimes, but as they battled for third, Krimes used the low line to drive back by both of them.

“I wasn’t very good at the beginning,” said Krimes. “Doug and Brian got by me and I thought we were in trouble.”

Montieth would get back by Krimes and then they both passed Michael. Pittman lead’s was shrinking with seven laps to go as both Montieth and Krimes closed.

As Pittman and Montieth pounded the cushion, it was Krimes driving his family-owned car working the inside line.

Krimes pressured Montieth and used the inside line to get by on lap 20. Krimes got under Pittman off turn four and was the new leader on lap 21.

Steve Buckwalter brought out the caution flag with three laps to go.

Michael got into Montieth as they entered turn one on the restart. They slid across the track and collected Esh and Cory Haas bringing out the red flag.

Krimes would lead the final three laps to score the win over Pittman, Rahmer, Rick Lafferty and Logan Schuchart. Brian Leppo, Aaron Ott, Frank Cozze, Dewease and Brent Marks completed the top 10.

The sprint heats were won by Sammons, Krimes and Michael. Cozze won the consolation.

ALAN KRIMES COMES FROM BEHIND TO BEST WILLIAMS GROVE SPRINTS,

Mechanicsburg, PA – “I thought we might end up fifth or sixth.” 
 
Those were the words of Denver’s Alan Krimes as he stood in Lawrence Chevrolet sprint car victory lane at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night after taking a well-deserved victory in a come from behind performance. 
 
In the Tool Shed of America 358 sprint main, Grantville’s Nate Hammaker led 17 of 20 laps to secure his third career Grove 358 checkers.
 
Krimes started the 25-lap sprint car feature in sixth and watched from fourth as Daryn Pittman took the lead on the second circuit. 
 
The red flag was displayed with three away when Mark Smith got out of shape on the backstretch while racing hard with Fred Rahmer to break into the top five.
 
With Mark Smith out of control and heading for the inside rail, also piling in was Greg Hodnett, Frank Cozze, Adam Wilt, Ryan Smith and Lance Dewease.
 
It was hard for fans to decide which race to watch on the track on the restart ast Curt Michael advanced toward the lead up front while Doug Esh, Rahmer, Brian Montieth and Krimes dueled for third, fourth, fifth and sixth.
 
But it was the lanky Krimes aboard his No. 87 that began busting through the pack first, taking fourth with nine to go from Esh before following Montieth around Michael to move into third a lap later.
 
And with five to go, Krimes had marched by Montieth for second while running his locked-down inside line to be biting into Pittman’s advantage. 
 
It only took one circuit for Krimes to motor by Pittman for the lead after thrusting his silver racer deep into the third corner to come up off of the fourth turn in front of Pittman and in control. 
 
His pace with the lead was soon slowed however for a stopped Steve Buckwalter with three to go and then the caution turned red on the restart when the good runs of Montieth, Michael and Esh came to an abrupt end when the trio crashed high in the first turn.
 
Krimes motored away on the restart, uncontested for the second Williams Grove win of his career, having taken his first in the Mitch Smith Memorial last July.
 
Pittman finished second followed by Rahmer, Rick Lafferty and Logan Schuchart.
 
Sixth through 10th went to Brian Leppo, Aaron Ott, Frank Cozze, Lance Dewease and Brent Marks. 
 
Heats for the 31-car field went to Davey Sammons, Krimes and Michael.  Cozze copped the consolation race.

ALAN KRIMES GETS BIG WIN AT MITCH SMITH MEMORIAL RACE

BY: TODD HEINTZELMAN

Alan Krimes scored the biggest win of his sprint-car career in the Mitch Smith Memorial at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night. The event was race number six in the Pennsylvania Sprint-car Speedweek series.

Krimes, of Denver, earned $10,000 for his first career Grove victory in a car owned by his father, Larry.

"I didn't know if I'd ever win here," Krimes said. "We've struggled here and had some bad luck. I feel like I should I have won four or five. I guess if you're going to pick one to win, this would be the one."

Krimes will cherish his commemorative checkered flag.

"I've been waiting a long time to get one of these checkered flags," Krimes said. "The names that have stood here where I'm standing right now, it's kind of unbelievable. I didn't know how close those guys were. Once I got the lead, I didn't feel all that great."

The Krimes family continues to compete with the higher dollar operations.

"It's a family run team," Krimes said. "Everybody that works on the car is part of the family. It's pretty cool to have everybody standing here in victory lane at the Grove."

Danny Dietrich of Gettysburg grabbed the early lead in turn one from polesitter Sam Hafertepe Jr.

The caution flag flew on lap two for Adam Wilt's third turn spin and interrupted an intense race for second between Hafertepe, third starter Krimes and fifth starter Fred Rahmer.

Krimes would take the second spot on the restart with an inside move off turn two. Krimes got a great run off the inside of turn four as Dietrich worked the cushion. They were side-by-side at the flagstand on lap five with Krimes scored the leader.

Doug's Esh's frontstretch crash brought out another caution flag.

Dietrich stayed with Krimes as the battle raged for fourth between Hafertepe, Rahmer and seventh starter Greg Hodnett, who won the past two Speedweek races at Hagerstown (Md.) and Port Royal. /p

The caution flag flew on lap 11 when Steve Buckwalter spun in turn one.

Rahmer tried to pass Hafertepe on the restart, but got out of the groove allowing Hodnett to drive by. Hodnett would also drive by Walker and Hafertepe.

Dietrich continued to race in the leader's shadow and they nearly made contact on the backstretch as Dietrich tried to squeeze between Krimes and the wall.

Tyler Walker, who came into the night as the Speedweek point leader, and Aaron Ott made contact on the frontstretch and Walker's sprinter came to a stop against the inside frontstretch guardrail. The race was then stopped to allow teams to refuel on lap 18.

Hodnett used a third turn slider to take the runner-up spot from Dietrich on the restart. With eight laps to go, Krimes had a comfortable lead. Rahmer and 11th place starter Brian Montieth traded fourth. Dietrich would drive back by Hodnett with six laps left.

Dietrich began to reel Krimes back in with three laps to go as Montieth caught Hodnett for third.

Krimes, who moved into second place in Speedweek points, would score the win as Hodnett got under Dietrich for second in the final turn. Montieth then passed Dietrich at the line for third. Rahmer finished fifth.

"We changed a couple things under the red," he said. "We were coming up on that lapped traffic and I was getting worried. I knew it was two or three to go and I was trying to not run up on them."

Ott, Hafertepe, Brian Leppo, Lance Dewease and Chad Layton completed the top 10.

Rahmer set fast time over the 34-car field with a lap of 17.525. Daryn Pittman, Rick Lafferty, Hodnett and Don Kreitz Jr. won the 10-lap heat races. Brian Montieth won the B-main.

KRIMES EIGHTH WINNER IN NINE RACES IN LINCOLN “410" SPRINTS

 ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 5/7/2011

 

For low-buck racer Alan Krimes, the wins never seem to come easy.

And Saturday night at Lincoln Speedway was no exception.

But he used all his equipment and experience to catch race-long leader Justin Collett with a slider in turns three and four of the 20th lap to score his first win of the year in a thrilling 25-lap "410" sprint car feature that saw wheel-to-wheel racing for every position.

Krimes started fifth, caught Adam Wilt for second on the second lap, and chased third-starting Collett over the next 18 laps before making the race-winning pass. Krimes was closing on Collett as the leaders raced through heavy lapped traffic between laps 13 and 17. The second caution flag of the race for a stopped Brian Montieth (flat tire) on lap 18 put Krimes on Collett’s rear bumper for the restart. The two battled for the top spot for the next two laps before Krimes made the race-winning pass.

"I really didn’t think I was going to catch Justin," said Krimes upon exiting his Conestoga Valley Garage/Krimes Racing Engines #87 in victory lane, "I had my wing the whole way back and his wasn’t, and I was on a tire that we used last night for time trials and the consolation at Williams Grove. Justin’s a good racer and he raced me clean, and that was fun."

Collett, seeking his first Lincoln "410" sprint win, settled for second, with 11th-starting Fred Rahmer crossing third, Wilt fourth, and Danny Dietrich fifth. Rounding out the top ten were Aaron Ott, Brian Leppo, Brent Marks, Jim Siegel, and 21st-starting Adam Lawrence.

Heats for the 26 "410" Sprints were won by Dietrich, Collett, and Frank Cozze, with Gerard McIntyre, Jr. winning the consolation.

KRIMES COMPLETES AMAZING COMEBACK WITH MANUFACTURERS NIGHT WIN

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA , 10/9/10

Never give up! Denver’s Alan Krimes thought he lost the race when he got jammed up behind a lapped car on lap nine and watched polesitter Brian Montieth fly by into the lead. But Krimes fought back, and swapped the lead several more times with the three-time track champ before taking control for good on lap 22, and raced to his second Lincoln win of 2010 in a thrilling 25-lap 22nd Annual Hank Gentzler Memorial/Manufacturers Night feature.

"I thought we were done," said Krimes upon exiting his Conestoga Valley Garage/Krimes Racing Engines/Mike’s Powerwash No.87 in victory lane, "I kind of diamonded the corner (turn 4) and got behind the 19H car and he slowed down an awful lot, and then his hands hanging outside the car (signaling he was going to the infield) and I thought, ‘Oh no’, and Montieth drove away."

Krimes, who started outside Montieth on the front row, grabbed the lead following two failed attempts to start the event with Montieth hot on his heels. Following a caution restart on the third lap for a stopped Steve Buckwalter, Krimes, Montieth, third-starting Lance Dewease, fourth-starting Fred Rahmer and sixth-starting Gerard McIntyre, Jr. set a torrid pace and approached lapped traffic on lap nine.

Krimes suddenly found himself behind a slower car, made contact, with Montieth taking advantage of the situation and drove by on the frontstretch.

"I thought that might have been the race there," said Krimes. "But luckily, the lapped cars held him up just enough so I could get close enough to him.

But just when everyone thought Montieth would check out from that point, Krimes got back on the gas and started to close the gap quickly. On the 18th lap ,Krimes slid under Montieth exiting the fourth turn to beat him to the line to complete the lap, just as Brad McClelland stopped in turn two to bring out the caution. At that point, both Greg Hodnett and Brian Leppo pulled into the pits.

On the restart, Rahmer got a run on Dewease and got by to move into third. At that point Montieth made another charge on Krimes to retake the lead on the 19th lap.

But Krimes was not done.

Krimes passed Montieth on the backstretch of the 19th lap and took the high-line away from Montieth entering turn three. That was just what Krimes needed as he powered off the fourth turn with the lead and held firm the remaining laps to take the checkered 1.10-seconds ahead of Montieth for his eighth career Lincoln win.

"Finally we got the better end of a caution there and I just had him at the line when that yellow came out," Krimes said, "That put me back in front of him, and what can you say after that. "I don’t know that there’s anyone more fun to race with that Brian, to tell you the truth," added Krimes, "He gave me plenty of room and I gave him plenty of room...and it was who came out with the fastest car and luckily, I held him off. After that last restart, it was just an all-out battle there."

Rahmer held on to third, with Dewease fourth, and McIntyre fifth.

Completing the top-10 were Chad Layton, Justin Henderson, 21st-starting Adam Wilt, 22nd-starting Danny Dietrich, and Mark Smith.

410 Sprint heats were won by Rahmer, McIntyre, Montieth, and Henderson, with Wilt winning the consolation. Montieth picked up a $400 bonus from Wings Unlimited for winning the Dash.

Fast time in time trials over the 36-car field was set by McIntyre, with a one-lap time of 13.181-seconds (102.420 MPH).

ALAN KRIMES 12TH WINNER IN 15 RACES IN LINCOLN “410" SPRINTS

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA , 7/10/2010 - Alan Krimes coaxed a "worn out" motor to the finish in making short work of a strong field to claim his first Lincoln win of the year in the 25-lap "410" sprint car feature Saturday night.

The Denver driver started sixth after front row starter John Rudisill spun and stacked up four other cars in turn three of the first lap, advanced to third by the end of the second lap, caught Derek Sell for second on lap three, and took the lead from polesitter and race-long leader Ed Aikin in turns three and four of lap six.

After that, there was no catching Krimes, whose final margin of victory over runner-up Brian Leppo was 2.4 seconds.

"It’s been a while since I’ve been here, I almost forgot how to get here!" said Krimes upon exiting his Conestoga Valley Garage/Krimes Racing Engines No.87 in victory lane, "It feels good to be back...we were fast in the heat, and they finally didn’t water the top for one of these races, and I think that helped us a little bit because I like to run the bottom."

"I got a real good start in the feature and got up to second or third and then once I got out in front I was just trying to run as smooth as I could," Krimes continued. "I wasn’t going to go off the bottom unless I heard somebody and we held on."

"This motor has got to be worn out," said Krimes, "I believe it’s on its 19th race, and it’s been due for a rebuild for about eight races...when you’re out front there you’re just waiting for something to break when you count the number of laps on this motor. But it held together."

Though it was Krimes’ seventh career Lincoln win, it was his first in the Pigeon Hills since August 30, 2008. He became the 12th different winner in 15 races so far this year.

Leppo’s impressive second-place run came from seventh starting spot, with Lance Dewease coming from his original 10th starting spot for third, points leader Brian Montieth (who started 11th) crossing fourth, and Mark Smith fifth. Completing the top ten were 19th-starting Doug Esh (in the Pancho’s Racing Products #93), Brent marks, 21st-starting Danny Dietrich, 20th-starting Fred Rahmer, and Adam Wilt.

Esh, Dietrich, and Rahmer all qualified through the consolation event. Rahmer was leading his heat when a front axle broke in turn four.

Heats for the 28 "410" Sprints were won by Aikin, Josh Wells, and Krimes, with Esh winning the consolation.

KRIMES WINS HAGERSTOWN SPEEDWEEK STOP

By: Todd Heintzelman

HAGERSTOWN, Md. - Everything finally fell into place for Alan Krimes.

Krimes has been close to winning some races this year, but hasn’t been able to crack victory lane until Wednesday night at Hagerstown Speedway.

Krimes, of Denver, started on the pole and led all 30 laps to score his first Pennsylvania Speedweek victory and a $5,000 check.

Krimes, who is the Speedweek point leader, was flawless over the entire distance and was smooth and straight off the inside of the speedway and held off Greg Hodnett in lapped traffic.

Krimes became the fourth different winner in as many races of this year’s Speedweek series which continues tonight at Lincoln Speedway.

“It was definitely a key to start up front like that,” Krimes said. “I was trying to be careful lapping cars, but you can’t be too careful because the guys behind you are coming.”

Krimes and Brent Marks shared the front row of the main event with Krimes driving into the lead off the fourth corner.

Daryn Pittman and Greg Hodnett started in row two and drove by Marks on the first lap. Mark Smith drove into fifth spot.

It didn’t take long for Krimes to build a big lead as Smith moved up one spot and Danny Dietrich cracked the top five.

Hodnett began to pressure Pittman for the runner-up spot on lap six. They traded the spot for a lap and then Hodnett gained control.

Krimes began to lap slower cars by the seventh time around. At the time he had a straightaway lead over Hodnett.

Smith moved by Pittman and into third.

Hodnett closed the gap by lap 15, but the only caution flag of the event would give Krimes clear track again. Brian Montieth stopped in turn four on lap 17.

There was one lapped car between Krimes and Hodnett on the restart. Hodnett was by him on the backstretch and closed on Krimes.

Hodnett tried the outside of Krimes in the corners, but Krimes’ car drove off the corners well and he maintained the lead.

“I could hear somebody back there and then I moved my line up a little bit and didn’t hear him anymore,” Krimes said.

Krimes began to slowly pull away again over the final five laps. He did have to squeeze under a lapped car in turn three with one lap to go to secure the biggest win of his sprint-car career.

The Krimes’ family foots the racing bill and most of the crew is made up of family members.

“We build our own motors so it’s really cool to win,” Krimes said.

Hodnett, the 2009 Speedweek champion, settled for second ahead of Smith, Pittman and Dietrich. Lance Dewease came from 18th to finish sixth. NASCAR driver Dave Blaney came from 19th to finish seventh. Stevie Smith, Adam Wilt and Brian Leppo completed the top 10.

Hodnett set fast time over the 30-car field with a lap of 17.102. Hodnett, Leppo and Marks won the heat races. Blaney won the B-main.

Grandview Speedway winner Tyler Walker tore the ACL in his knee following his traditional victory lane back flip.

KRIMES WINS RACE, MONTIETH CLAIMS FIRST TRACK TITLE IN LINCOLN 410 SPRINTS

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA

There’s a new track champion at Lincoln Speedway.

And the driver known as "the Edge" did it without a single win in 2008. Brian Montieth capped off his championship season with a fourth-place finish in Saturday night’s 25-lap 410 sprint car feature Saturday night.

Though he has not yet visited victory lane this season, Montieth’s fourth-place finish was his ninth top five finish and 19th top ten finish of ‘08.

It was a rough night for the four drivers still in points contention for the Lincoln title. Montieth was the only driver who finished high enough in his heat to gain a handicapped spot at the front of the feature field, and he started tenth. Both 1996 champ Cris Eash and 10-time track champ Fred Rahmer qualified in their heats, but missed the handicapping and started 16th and 19th, respectively. Niki Young finished fifth in the consolation event and missed qualifying by one spot. But he made the field when Pat Cooper scratched from the feature.

A flip by sixth-starting Chad Jumper in turn two of the opening lap also took out the YTI Career Institute #25 of Chad Layton and damaged the sprinter of defending champ Rahmer. Several other cars went to the pits during the red, including Young. Rahmer was able to report out before the race re-started, and started in the exact same 19th starting spot.

Once the race got underway, Mechanicsburg’s Bill Stine took the lead and paced the field the first eight laps before doing a wheelie exiting turn four and collecting the Pearl Technologies #9 of Craig Keel, who was setting up for the pass and struck the inside front stretch guardrail. Keel was done for the night, and Alan Krimes, who started sixth after the initial red flag, assumed the runner-up spot.

Krimes made quick work of Unlimited Fencing #71X on the restart, grabbing the lead on the restart and leading the rest of the way. For Krimes, is was his second win of the year and the sixth of his Lincoln career.

Fifth-starting Cody Darrah crossed second .78 second behind, with Jim Siegel third, Montieth fourth, and Josh Wells fifth. Completing the top ten were 16th-starting Doug Esh, Greg Hodnett, Eash, Aaron Ott, and Scott Geesey.

"I hated to spoil the party for those guys in the top-four in points," said Krimes with a big smile on his face in victory lane. "It was a rough night...the track was one groove, not my kind of track that’s for sure. Once I got out front there and I saw Cody on the outside I figured the top was the best place to be, but, my car just didn’t feel comfortable up there at all. It was loose and bouncing all around."

"We were battling real hard there and came up on lapped traffic and I knew that was going to get interesting. Luckily I got under the #4 car there on the white flag lap and that sealed the deal, hung on, and got the win."

The championship was largely determined on the ninth-lap restart, when Cris Eash tried to go high on turns one and two and was forced to the wall while Montieth drove under Eash into fifth. Until he recovered, Eash found himself in eighth-place, and that’s where he finished.

Young, who fought mechanical problems all night, dropped from the field on lap 13, and Rahmer pulled into the infield on lap 16.

Montieth’s point total at night’s end was 7,225, twenty-five points better than Eash (7,200). Rahmer was third with 7,135 points and Young’s final point total was 7,110.

ALAN KRIMES HOLDS OFF RAHMER FOR FIFTH CAREER 410 SPRINT WIN AT LINCOLN

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 4/12/08 - Alan Krimes had an old car and an old motor but was still the fastest car on the track Saturday night at Lincoln Speedway.

Krimes took the lead early then survived a marathon of caution flags to put together his first win of the year in the 25-lap Cindy Rowe Auto Glass 410 Sprint car feature Saturday night.

With track conditions to his liking, the Denver driver was able to get around Brian Leppo for the top spot with just six laps complete and drove off from the field for his fifth career feature win at the track. He started in the ninth spot.

"This car has a lot of races on it and we ran it all last year and the motor has a lot of laps on it but it still runs strong," said the second generation racer. "We need to run good to keep this car going so tonight will help out an awful lot."

Jeff Busby turned over before a lap could be completed to bring out a red flag. Four consecutive yellow flags over the next four laps kept the field slow as Jim Siegel, John Rudisill, Pat Cooper and a Cody Darrah/Niki Young tangle were the drivers involved in the first four yellow flags.

Krimes was already up to third as Leppo set the pace from the second lap.

Krimes drove under Leppo in turn four on lap six but then had to withstand numerous cautions during the next 10 laps.

"I hate caution flags when you are leading the race," he stated. "I thought we ran like six or seven laps and it was actually only three. I just wanted to get the race over because I hate when you get to the front early because you are just waiting for someone to pass you."

Krimes didn’t have to worry about that.

The action behind Krimes was intense as Leppo, Doug Esh, Stevie Smith and Fred Rahmer, who moved into contention on lap 15.

Rahmer, who started 12th made some late race moves to take the runner-up spot from Leppo on lap 21 but could not track down the Conestoga Valley Garage, Krimes Machine Shop No. 87 sprinter, who held a 10-car length margin of victory.

"I told Fred before the race I needed him to slow down a little bit", commented Krimes about the three-time 2008 winner Rahmer. "I see he finished second so he must have been coming but we were pretty good tonight."

Ironically, three of Krimes’ five Lincoln wins came after starting ninth in the field.

"I don’t know what it is about starting ninth here, but my crew guys get pretty excited when we start ninth," he added. "Three out of our five wins here we have started ninth, so I don’t know what it is about that spot but we beat a good field of cars again tonight."

Rahmer, of Salfordville finished second, strengthening his Lincoln points lead with Leppo, of New Oxford finishing a season-best third over Lancaster’s Esh and Broken Arrow, Oklahoma’s Smith.

Completing the top 10 were Nick Schlauch, Jr., Niki Young, Brian Montieth, Aaron Ott and Mike Bittinger.

Heats for the 25 410 Sprinters were won by Leppo, AJ Michael and Cris Eash, with Montieth winning the consolation.

Dover’s Gene Knaub led all 20 laps of the Weikel Racewear 358 late model feature.

Knaub started on the pole by virtue of a nine car inversion and was never challenged in his second straight win in the Pigeon Hills.

Fellow front-row starter Dan Zechman finished in the runner-up spot over Jerry Bard, Craig Wagaman and Shaun Jones with Tyler Hershey, Kyle Lear, Roy Miller, Travis Mease and Jake Lettich completing the top 10 finishers.

Heats for the 32 358 Late Models were won by Roy Miller, Mease and Lear, with Corey Houck winning the consolation.

Harrisburg’s Kory Sites started in the 11th and final spot in the 20-lap Lawrence Chevrolet street stock feature but drove his way to the front by lap seven to score the win over Kevin Sigler, Randy Zechman, Dave Motter and Gary Welsh.

Gary Welsh and Rodney Clouser won the heat races for the 11 street stocks.

Next Saturday night, April 26th at 7 PM, it will be Williams Grove Old Timers Night with the Cindy Rowe Auto Glass 410 Sprints being joined by the 305 Sprints and Thundercars. Gates will open at 5 PM.

LAYTON, KRIMES LINCOLN “410" SPRINT WINNERS

RAHMER WINS RECORD TENTH TRACK TITLE

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 9/1/07 - Denver’s Alan Krimes put together his last motor just hours before race time, and it worked to perfection as he drove from his eighth starting spot to track down Johnny Mackison Jr. and wrestle the lead from the York driver on lap 19 to pick-up his second win of 2007 in the regularly scheduled 25-lap feature for the 410 Sprints Saturday night at Lincoln Speedway.

"The track looked like it was really rubbering down in the B Main, and I wasn’t sure I would be able to get up through there," said Krimes in victory lane, "They went out and watered it a little bit before the feature, and that brought the top groove in for the first four or five laps. That really helped me out at the beginning."

"I really have to thank Uncle Butch," added Krimes, "We only had one motor last night and we blew it up at Williams Grove. This motor here was two hours from being ready and he left the track last night and worked all night putting it together. The blown motor knocked the rear out, too. So we had to wake up early and put this motor in and put a new rear in. But it looks like the hard work really paid off."

Polesitter Pat Cooper ran the best race of his career and led the first 11 laps of the feature before fourth-starting Mackison slipped by on the backstretch of the 12th lap for the lead.

Meanwhile Krimes, who has turned into a slick track specialist, was working his magic on the hard-raced 3/8th-mile high-banked oval and methodically made his way to the front. Krimes, who was running fourth behind Cooper, AJ Michael and Mackison after one lap, passed Michael into third on the third lap, and eventually passed Cooper to move into second on the 18th lap as Mackison tried to work through lapped traffic as the non-stop laps clicked-off.

Krimes dove low under Mackison in the third and fourth turns of the 19th lap to take the lead. Then the race’s only caution waved on the 21st lap for Steve Buckwalter, who had come to a stop in turns one and two.

Krimes had Mackison, Doug Esh, Cooper and Chris Knopp on his bumper for the restart. But before the race resumed, both third-running Esh and Cris Eash had right rear tires go flat and were forced to go to the pits for a tire change.

Krimes easily pulled away on the 21st lap restart and drove away to a 2.30-second win over Mackison to register his fourth career win at Lincoln Speedway.

Cooper held onto third place for his best career finish and was followed by Chris Knopp and Lance Dewease, who finished fourth and fifth respectively.

Completing the top-10 were Fred Rahmer, Niki Young, Greg Hodnett, Nick Schlauch Jr. and Michael.

Heats for the 28 "410" sprints on hand were won by AJ Michael, Pat Cooper and Ryan Taylor, with Bobby Weaver winning the consolation.

Rahmer’s sixth-place finish locked up his record-breaking 10th Lincoln Speedway track title. This came on the heels of his record-breaking 151st career win earlier in the season to become Lincoln Speedway’s all-time sprint feature winner. And last week he scored his 153rd career win to become the all-time leading feature winner in all divisions combined of the storied history of the Abbottstown oval.

Earlier in the evening, Harrisburg’s Chad Layton waited a week to finish the job he just started as the driver of the Pete Postupak No.25 sprinter. Layton, who started on the pole originally, had taken the lead from outside frontrow starter Jim Siegel on the third lap and was leading when the rains came last Saturday night in the second 20-lap 410 sprint feature on Central Maryland Pools Night. Layton led the remaining 15-laps to pick up his first win of 2007 by .66-seconds over defending track champ Doug Esh and became the 11th different winner in 22 events in 2007 at the Pigeon Hills oval.

Layton restarted the leader this week with Siegel, Cris Eash, Doug Esh, Jeff Busby, Brian Leppo, Fred Rahmer, Brian Montieth, Steve Buckwalter and Alan Krimes in tow.

A Montieth spin on the restart collected Alan Krimes to bring out the caution. The caution waved once again on the 10th lap for a Josh Wells and Pat Cooper spin in the first and second turns.

Defending track champion Doug Esh moved into second behind Layton on the 10th lap restart with Siegel, Rahmer and Cris Eash trailing when the caution waved again on the 14th lap when both Cooper and Mike Bittinger stopped on the track.

Rahmer shot around Siegel to move into third on the restart as Layton pulled away to a 1.51-second lead over Esh by the 16th lap.

The final stoppage of action occurred on the 18th lap when Cris Eash flipped in turn two and John Rudisill stopped on the subsequent restart.

But Layton was strong over the final laps and pulled away to register his sixth career Lincoln 410 sprint win.

Esh, Rahmer, Siegel and Niki Young finished second through fifth respectively. Completing the top-10 were Brian Leppo, Jeff Busby, Steve Buckwalter, Alan Krimes and Ryan Taylor

Langhorne’s Eric Eckert, a rookie in the super sportsman division, looked anything but a rookie as he grabbed the lead from his pole starting position and led all 25-laps en route to his first career win.

Eckert first held-off second-starting Jake Raudabaugh for 17 laps and then raced wheel-to-wheel with eighth-starting Duaine Smith. Smith actually took the lead from Eckert on the 19th lap, but tagged Eckert’s front bumper when trying to make the pass, sending the bumper onto the track and bringing out the caution for debris. That put Eckert back out in front for the restart. And he didn’t look back from there. Eckert held off Smith on the restart and pulled away over the final laps to take the checkered 1.07-seconds ahead of Raudabaugh (who got by Smith on the final lap for second) to become the third different winner in four super sportsman events at Lincoln Speedway in 2007.

Frankie Herr got the H&H Wings Hard-Charger Award by coming form his 15th starting spot to finish fourth, and Gregg Foster finished fifth. Completing the top-10 were Bobby Hockenberry, Rich Eichelberger, Jason Fry, Danny Hager and Chris Reed.

Heats for the 36 Super Sportsman on hand were won by Foster, Eckert, Aaron Eichelberger and Hager. Twin consolations were won by Ryan Rupp and Leroy Martin.

Polesitter Craig Robinson started on the pole and led all 20-laps to become the 11th different winner in 11 previous visits by the 305 Sprints in their regularly scheduled feature.

Robinson held off outside frontrow starter Mike Freet the entire distance to take the checkered 1.82-seconds ahead at the end. Scott Smith, Mark Watkins, and Todd Spangler completed the top five.

Earlier, Watkins, of McConnellsburg, grabbed the lead from Todd Spangler on the ninth lap and then held off Spangler in a one-lap dash to the checkered to pick up the win in the Make-up 20-lap 305 Sprint from April 28th.

Watkin’s took the checkered..75-seconds ahead of Spangler to become the 10th different winner in 10 previous trips for the traveling 305 Sprint division to the Pigeon Hills oval. Brent Comp, Nike Fleet and Scott Ellerman finished third through fifth.

Completing the top-10 were Jim Wentz, Dave Wilson, Dave Youtzy, Andy Haus, and Scott Smith.

Heats for the 31 "305" Sprints on hand were won by Tim Kline, Youtzy and Watkins, with Mike Heckman winning the consolation.

Next Saturday night, September 8th, at 6 PM, the 358 Sprint cars will take billing in the annual 358 Sprint Championship. The traditional final point race of 2007 for the 358 sprinters will determined this season’s track champion by nights’ end. Time trials will be used to determine the evening’s starting line-ups. In addition, the evening will mark the second night of the Trail-Way/Lincoln Speedway Shootout for the 358 Sprints as well with the top-10 from the combined two nights of racing being awarded bonus money for their efforts.

In addition, the 358 Late Models will race in the their final race of the season at the Pigeon Hills oval which will also determine that division’s track champion. This could be the most thrilling race of the night, as less than 100 points separate the top-nine in points and mathematically anyone in the top-14 in points has a shot at the inaugural track title. Jerry Bard clings to a slim five-point lead over both Shaun Jones and Bobby Beard, with the winner of the evenings’ feature event quite possibly winning the title.

The thundercars will round out the evening’s racing action as they continue to battle for points towards their track championship.

Racing action will get underway with time trials for the 358 sprints at 6 PM. Gates will open at 4 PM.

KRIMES BESTS ESH, RAHMER IN LINCOLN “410" SPRINT MAIN

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 3/31/07

 

No sophomore jinx for Alan Krimes. The 2006 Lincoln rookie of-the-year turned around his season with an impressive win in the "410" sprint feature at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

In doing so, the Denver driver became the third winner in as many Lincoln races this year, and pulled even with his dad on the all-time Lincoln win list.

"I almost forgot about that," said Krimes with a laugh in victory lane when told he tied his dad Larry with three career wins, "I was hoping to tie him last year when we won those two, and I couldn’t get another one before the end of the year. I guess this ties us with the old man. Hopefully I can win a couple more than he does, you never know."

Krimes started fourth and grabbed the runner-up spot from polesitter Brook Weibley on the second lap. But hard racing in the top five kept him busy while front-row starter Darren Eash pulled away to a lead of more than four seconds by the time Eash caught lapped traffic on lap seven. As the leaders maneuvered through lapped traffic, Krimes began to close on Eash, cutting his lead to less than 2.5 seconds by the tenth lap. Krimes continued to close through each set of turns, finally driving under the E&G Classics/Maryland Industrial Coaters #7E exiting turn two of lap 16.

"I got up into second real quick and Darren kind of got away from me," explained Krimes, "And then he started to get into lapped traffic and I ran him down...and he tried to get around a lapped car going into turn one and I snuck underneath him."

"I knew the bottom of the race track was going to be the place to race here in the feature," Krimes quickly added. "The track really slicked-off and we’re pretty good on the bottom...I was good on the bottom last year and this is the same car we ran here last year."

Krimes built a healthy lead by the time the first caution of the event came out for Eash and Siegel, who tangled while racing for second entering turn three of lap 20. Also collected were Cory Haas and the lapped car of John Rudisill. Eash and Rudisill were done for the night, with Siegel and Haas coming back to finish tenth and 11th.

A red on the restart ended the night for Eash’s brother Cris, who dropped off the pace and collected the #6W of Josh Wells, who flipped on the backstretch. At the time, Cris Eash was third and Wells was fifth.

The two incidents allowed defending champ Doug Esh to advance from fourth to second and nine-time track champ Fred Rahmer to advance from seventh to third.

But four lapped cars helped Krimes keep some distance between the challengers, and Krimes actually increased his lead from 1.35 seconds on lap 21 to 1.89 seconds over Esh at the finish.

"I saw on those last couple of restarts that Doug and Fred were behind me, and those guys are real tough to beat here. I know we had some lapped cars between me and them, but I was still sweating it those last couple of laps, said Krimes, "This sure feels good. We’ve been kind of struggling here since the season got started...but I got a real good starting spot and that was a big difference."

"It’s good to hear I was pulling away from those guys," Krimes added,"You know, this motor is the only one we have together right now. It’s about ready to be rebuilt ,and probably shouldn’t have run it this week. And this is the car we ran here last year and probably has 40 or 50 races on it. We have a new one at home, but we figured we would start the year with this one since it worked so well for us last year and why change something that works so good. We do the best we can with what we have."

Finishing fourth and fifth behind Esh and Rahmer were T.J. Stutts and Cody Darrah, who started seventh and ran most of the race without power steering. Completing the top ten were Chad Layton, 19th-starting Jeff Busby, Steve Buckwalter, Chris Knopp, and Siegel.

Heats for the 29 "410" sprinters were won by Wells, Weibley and Darren Eash, with Busby winning the consolation.

Before Saturday, 16-year-old Tyler Hershey of Mercersburg had never even seen Lincoln Speedway. By night’s end, he was looking forward to coming back.

The 2006 Bedford and Hagerstown rookie of-the-year started on the pole and led every lap in claiming the 20-lap season opener for "358" late models. Hershey was never seriously challenged, crossing 1.73 seconds in front of Sterling Kinard, with Heston’s Mike Shoemaker third, Arlin Brougher fourth, and last week’s thundercar winner Bobby Beard fifth. Completing the top ten were Larry Baer, Pat Beard, Derek Mease, Bernie Beard, and Carl Graves.

Pat Beard and Carl Graves came from the back after an early-race melee that involved 10 cars in turn three and blocked the track, leading to a red flag.

Heats for the 37 "358" late models were won by Bobby Beard, Baer, Rick Scheaffer and Graves. Twin consolations were won by Cory Houck and Carl Billet.

Defending track champion Neil Smith became the third different winner in three events by winning the 20-lap thundercar feature.

Smith, who started 12th, immediately drove to the bottom groove on the dry-slick surface and began racing his way to the front while polesitter Duane Watson and Nat Tuckey raced out in front. A sudden mechanical problem for the race-leading Watson on the second lap handed the lead over to open-day winner Tuckey.

By the third lap Smith had moved into third behind Tuckey and got under fourth-starting Smoke Christine on the fourth to move into the runner-up spot. Smith’s low-groove run allowed him to catch the high-groove running Tuckey and made his race-winning pass on the sixth lap.

Tuckey immediately dropped to the low groove and began to try and get under the Hanover-racer in every turn. But Tuckey was only ever able to pull along side the 39-time thundercar winner exiting turn two with Smith out-racing the Biglerville-racer into turn three each time.

Smith took the checkered 1.26-seconds ahead for the win over Tuckey, with 11th-starting Sam Gallagher finishing third, Christine fourth and Bob Stough fifth.

Completing the top-10 were Danny Beard, Mike Slaybaugh, David Prunkl, Ronnie Thomas and Al Cramer

Heats for the 30 thundercars were won by Smith, Watson and Tuckey, with Slaybaugh winning the consolation.

Next Saturday, April 7th, at 6 PM, Lincoln Speedway will feature the second of eight events for the 358 late models who will be joined by the first appearance of the super sportsman, with the Cindy Rowe Auto Glass 410 Sprints rounding out the evening’s racing action. Gates will open at 4 PM.

RAHMER AND KRIMES SPLIT CENTRAL MARYLAND POOLS TWIN 20'S AT LINCOLN

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA

 

Fred Rahmer ended a Lincoln win dry spell by claiming his 147th career win, but it was Alan Krimes who had the best night with a second and a first in the Central Maryland Pools Twin 20's for the "410" sprint cars at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

The Denver driver started beside Rahmer on the inside of row five when Rahmer picked the #10 pill for the inversion to start the second feature. He assumed fifth for a second-lap restart when Rahmer came to a stop with front-end damage after striking the back of Niki Young’s mount on the back stretch of the second lap. Rahmer, who won the first of the Twin 20's, was done for the rest of the night.

During the caution, third-place Doug Esh (who came from eighth to third on the first lap), came to a stop with ignition problems on turn one, ending his night.

All the while, polesitter Sam Schlosberg (who finished tenth in the first feature), was leading. He paced the field for the first ten laps before Krimes raced around him in lapped traffic exiting turn four of lap 11.

One lap earlier, Krimes did the same thing to second-place Brian Montieth to grab the runner-up spot.

After gaining the lead, Krimes raced away to an impressive 4.48-second win, his second in three weeks and the second of his career (both coming at Lincoln in 2006). Meanwhile, several drivers joined the battle for second, with seventh-starting Chad Layton coming on late to pass Schlosberg on lap 19 and cross second. Schlosberg hung on for third, with Brian Leppo and Niki Young completing the top five. Sixth through tenth were Bobby Weaver, Montieth, Josh Wells, Cory Haas, and Steve Clabaugh (who finished tenth in both events).

"Ever since we put this car together, we’ve been getting around this place super fast," said Krimes of the car and motor put together by his dad (Larry) and uncle, "The first race Rahmer got by me and I knew whoever got to the front first was probably going to win it."

"This car comes off the corners like a rocket ship," continued Krimes, "I just pulled it as hard as I could getting out of the turns. It makes my job a lot easier. When we put this new car together, it was like turning on a light switch."

Winless in the Pigeon Hills since claiming his third win in four weeks back on May 20th, Rahmer wasted little time getting to the front in the first feature. Scheduled to start 12th, Rahmer slid up a row when Michael Carber stopped on the track with an unlocked steering wheel as the cars were lining up to begin the first feature. Carber lost his sixth starting spot and went to the rear.

The J&S Fabrication/Macri Concrete/Miller Brothers Chevrolet #22 used the top and middle of the track to sort through heavy traffic, and was up to third by the time an early red flag came out for a five-car crash that involved the flipping Mike Bittinger on lap three. Bittinger, making his Lincoln 410 debut in the CMP/KC Automotive/Scott’s Signs #12, was uninjured.

Rahmer drove around polesitter Billy Kimmel on the third-lap restart, then slid under race-long leader Brian Leppo to move to the post entering turn three of lap four. Rahmer stayed on the low side to lead the rest of the way, despite heavy pressure from ninth-starting Alan Krimes over the second half of the race. Krimes, riding the cushion through every turn, drove side-by-side with Rahmer on each end of the speedway between laps 12 and 18 until Rahmer used lapped cars to his advantage and cross 1.14-seconds ahead of Krimes.

"We were fortunate to move up a row at the start, but we have a lot of work to do yet," said Rahmer in victory lane, "I’ve been supplied with everything we need to win, and I just haven’t been getting the job done. Hopefully, we can get things going and get turned around here."

"Alan was very quick. I knew that, and saw him coming on the bottom, and that’s why I went to the bottom there," added Rahmer, "He’s been running exceptionally well, and obviously Doug (Esh) been driving superb."

Krimes settled for second, with 11th-starting Doug Esh crossing third, Chad Layton fourth, and Niki Young fifth (the first of two top five finishes on the night). Leppo, Montieth, Wells, Schlosberg, and Clabaugh completed the top ten.

It was Rahmer’s fourth win at Lincoln, tenth ‘06 win overall, and 147th career win at Lincoln, pulling him to within three of Steve Smith’s all-time win record.

Heats for the 27 "410 sprints were won by Leppo, Esh and Carber, with Eric Stambaugh winning the consolation.

Dover’s Gene Knaub found his way back to victory lane for a seventh time this year in the 20-lap thundercar feature, run between the sprint car 20-lappers.

Knaub started fifth and passed outside front row starter David Prunkl on lap nine. He led the rest of the way, with points leader and 12th-starting Neil Smith coming through the field to cross second, 11th starting Nat Tuckey third, Prunkl settling for fourth, and 14th starting Sam Gallagher fifth. Sixth through tenth were Duane Watson, Mike Slaybaugh, Danny Beard, Bob Stough, and Bob Bare.

Heats for the 24 thundercars were won by Prunkl, Knaub and Watson.

Next Saturday night, August 12th, it will be YORK COUNTY RACING CLUB NIGHT with $2 off general admission tickets to all card-holding club members. All three point divisions will be in action - the Cindy Rowe Auto Glass 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints & Thundercars. Gates for the evening’s racing action will open at 5:30 PM, with racing action getting underway at 7:30 PM.
