Walp Pennsylvania Sprint Series Winner at Trail-Way

HANOVER, PA – Wapwallopen’s John Walp led them all to score his second career win in Friday night’s Pennsylvania Sprint Series 25-lap feature at Trail-Way Speedway.

“For the first time coming to this track, it couldn’t have worked out better,” said Walp upon exiting his GMS Piling Products/LaNapoli Pizza/Dotzel Trucking #5 in victory lane, “Our set-up was just right. There was lots of moisture on the bottom, so I just stayed there.”

Walp started on the pole and was ahead of three aborted attempts to start the race, one of which resulted in a multi-car crash that involved a flipping Keith Prutzman, who was uninjured. Walp restarted at the point, and was never headed, despite heavy pressure from New Jersey driver Tom Carberry over the middle stages of the race. Carberry eventually got sideways in turn two of lap 21, driving through the infield but only losing two spots in the process.

From there, Walp drove away to the win, with fourth-starting Jack Frye crossing second and Dylan Shatzer starting and finishing third. Jaremi Hanson and Carberry rounded out the top five.

Once the race got started, it didn’t stop, establishing a 25-lap PASS feature record of 6 minutes, 30.953 seconds.




Qualifiers for the 16 PASS Sprints were won by Walp and Tyler Reinhart, who was involved in the first lap red flag and came back to finish eighth.

Johnstown’s Jim Young set fast time, took the feaure lead from his second starting spot on the first turn, and drove to his 13th career Trail-Way win in the 20-lap championship event for 600cc micro-sprints. Young was piloting a car he built nine years ago after destroying his car in a crash two weeks ago.

Brad Weber, Jesse Snyder, Travis Keiser, and Tyler Leese finished second through fifth.
Heats for the 16 micros were won by Leese and Keiser.

Jamie Zentmyer started fourth, grabbed the lead on the first lap, and led the rest of the way to claim his second win of the year and second of his T-W career in the 20-lap street stock feature. Polesitter Jeremy Stremmel finished second, with Aaron Beard, Wayne Dutterer, and Danny Beard rounding out the top five.

Heats for the 11 street stocks were won by Dalton Myers and Marshall McMullen.
Matt Chronister started on the pole and led every lap of the 15-lap limited stock feature.
Robbie Carroll made it interesting near the end, coming from 12th starting spot to close on the leader, but then spinning sideways and dropping from the race in the final two turns. Matt Worley started second, ran in the top five the entire race, and got around Carroll to cross second at the end, with Cody Klinedinst coming from 21st starting spot to finish third. Justin Oberlin and Carl Cassell completed the top five.

Qualifiers for the 21 limited stocks were won by Matt Chronister, Carroll, and Worley.
