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.
