Drydene 40 - Lincoln Speedway - 48 Danny Dietrich

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA – Dean’s Auto Plaza Night was action packed with four features and solid car counts across the three divisions, 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints and Mid Atlantic Modifieds.

Scott Fisher, who was one of three drivers racing in both the 410 and 358 divisions, started on the pole of the 30-lap feature. 2019 Rookie of the year, Trey Hivner lined up second.

Fisher led the field into turn 1 on the start with Jordan Givler moving into second. Givler used the top of the track to reel in Fisher and take the lead at the line on lap 2.

Chad Trout, who was running with a bruised elbow after taking a wild ride Friday night, got by Fisher for second on lap 3.

Danny Dietrich was picking off cars and got up to fourth from his ninth starting spot on lap 4.




Trout was closing in on Givler for second. Dietrich caught Fisher going down the back stretch on lap 5 to take third. Dietrich had his sight set on the leaders and was using the bottom line around the track to reel them in.

Trout continued to close in on Givler as Dietrich hunted them down. The top three, Givler, Trout and Dietrich, were under a blanket on lap 9. Dietrich got by Trout for second on lap 10 and made quick work of Givler taking the lead going into turn 3 on the same lap.

The fist caution of the race came on lap 11 when Hivner got spun around in turn 2. Hivner rejoined the field.

Dietrich paced the field ahead of Givler, Trout, Fisher and Landon Myers for the restart.

Trout took second coming out of turn 4 on the restart and Matt Campbell got by Givler to take third.

Dietrich’s 3.269 second lead over Trout was erased when the yellow flag came out on lap 16. Glenndon Forsythe and Brian Montieth got together on the front stretch. Forsythe rejoined the field but the eight-time track champion, Montieth headed to the pits ending his night.

Freddie Rahmer was on the move making his way to fifth on the restart and then fourth on lap 18.

As Dietrich approached lapped traffic with 10 laps to go, he had a 2.164 second advantage over Trout.

As the laps wound down a three car battle for fifth between Givler, Chase Dietz and Tim Glatfelter was well under way. Dietz hit the wall in turn 2 giving the spot back to Givler for a moment but Dietz rebounded and took the spot for good.

Rahmer continued to work his way towards the front of the field and got by Campbell for third with four laps to go. Campbell didn’t let Rahmer pull away and continued to challenge Freddie to take the spot back.

Dietrich won his third feature in a row and his fifth of the season 2.665 seconds ahead of Trout. Rahmer held on to finish third. Campbell crossed the line fourth and Dietz completed the top five.

The caution came out on the restart for Matt Findley who stopped on the back stretch.

Rudisill tried the top again along with Owings but to no avail.

Tyler Ross, who won the first 358 feature of the night, made a big move getting to fourth but quickly fell off the pace bringing out the caution.

Altobelli was being challenged by Arnold for the lead when the caution came out on lap 13 for Joey Polevoy who stopped in turn 2.

Kable stayed with the leaders on the restart, but the caution came out before he could make anything happen.

A pile-up of five cars in turn 2 was the cause of the yellow flag. Haley Kaiser, Alyssa Rowe, Chase Butler, Jason Saga and Chris Cogan were involved.
