Brian Swartzlander Collects Modified Feature Win At Lernerville

SARVER, PA – The 1000th Sprint Car checkered flag waved for Central Pennsylvania pilot Jason Shultz as he held off a hard charging AJ Flick en route to Terry Bowser Excavating Victory Lane on Friday night to claim the honors in the Lernerville Grand main event for the Peoples Natural Gas Sprint Cars. Shultz started on the pole of the 25 lap feature and never looked back, picking up the historic trophy and the $1,100 in bonuses on top of the normal winners share. Meanwhile, Michael Norris started up front and was overtaken by a determined Alex Ferree who came from the tail of the field to wrest the lead away. Following a series of cautions and restarts, Norris found his way back around to cross under the checkers first in Precise Racing Products Late Model feature action.

In the Diehl Automotive DIRTcar Big Block Modified main event, Garrett Krummert seemed to have the field under a firm command for the majority of the laps until a series of restarts past the halfway point gave eight time track champion Brian Swartzlander just enough clues on how best to beat Krummert to the back stretch as he pegged a late opportunity with the field bunched up and took advantage of it en route to his 98th career win at The Action Track. Cory McPherson was a man possessed in Millerstown Pic-A-Part Penn-Ohio Pro Stock action. The six time track champion started fifth and then made his way around a very strong running Jason Fosnaught at the lap six mark and managed to keep him in rear view, clinching the feature victory by a .74 second margin.
