ABBOTSTOWN, PA – Freddie Rahmer’s win on Saturday was his third of the season at Lincoln Speedway. It was also his third Fallen Firefighters Night victory, which Rahmer touched on in victory lane, “It’s pretty cool, this is the third one of these Brandon Little races we’ve won. They do a heck of a job promoting, this place was packed when we got here today.” Rahmer lined up eighth for the start of the 33-lap feature and worked his way to second by lap 13. Rahmer took the lead from Alan Krimes on lap 18 in lapped traffic. The feature ran non-stop until three laps to go, “We were decent most of the race. After the yellow I don’t think I was that good the last three laps.” Rahmer took home $5,000 for the win.
Alan Krimes drew the pole in the redraw and Tim Wagaman lined up second, both drivers had wins under their belts previously this season.
Wagaman had the lead at the line and led the field out of turn 2 with Krimes in second, Troy Wagaman third and TJ Stutts fourth. Freddie Rahmer, who started eighth was up to sixth on lap 2 and had Dylan Norris in his crosshairs. Rahmer took fifth from Norris on lap 5.
Last week’s winner, Aaron Bollinger, started 16th and was up to 10th by lap 6. Rahmer got by Stutts for fourth on lap 7 and started reeling in Troy Wagaman for third.
Krimes used the bottom in turns 1 and 2 to take the lead from Tim Wagaman on lap 10. Rahmer was still on the move taking third on lap 11 from Troy Wagaman.
The leaders entered lapped traffic and Rahmer moved into second on lap 13.
Rahmer tracked down Krimes as they worked through lapped cars. Rahmer took a look to the inside of Krimes in turns 1 and 2 on lap 16 but could not make the pass for the lead.
Rahmer and Krimes raced wheel to wheel down the back stretch with Rahmer taking the lead on lap 18.
Krimes kept Rahmer in reach as they continued to race through lapped traffic.
Lucas Wolfe, the night’s fast timer, went to work on Tim Wagaman for third as the laps wound down. Wolfe made the pass coming off the inside of turn 2 on lap 26.
Rahmer started pulling away from Krimes and had a 1.733 second lead with five laps to go.
The only caution of the race came on lap 30 when Troy Wagaman fell off the pace.
Freddie led Krimes, Wolfe, Cory Haas and Tim Wagaman to the cone for the restart.
Rahmer went to the bottom with Krimes choosing the top in turn 1. The bottom worked for Rahmer, and he held Krimes off in the three lap shootout to the checkered flag, winning the 33-lap race by 1.368 seconds. Wolfe finished third and Haas crossed the line fourth. Tim Wagaman completed the top five.
Chase Dietz earned the $200 hard charger award driving from 22nd to 6th. Heat race winners, Lucas Wolfe, TJ Stutts, Troy Wagaman and Dylan Norris, each took home a $100 bonus. Despite being the first non-qualifier, Chris Arnold took home an extra $100. Alan Krimes and Chase Dietz each received $250 for being the first two cars that were sporting Fallen Firefighter designs to finish. Lucas Wolfe’s quick time of 13.149 seconds earned him an extra $500. Right rear tires went to Tyler Ross, Matt Campbell, Tim Glatfelter, Jim Siegel, Dalton Dietrich, Trey Hivner, Aaron Bollinger, Jordan Givler, Brie Hershey and Kyle Moody thanks to generous sponsors.
Brett Wanner Scores First Win of 2021
Riley Emig and Mason Chaney shared the front row for the 20-lap feature on Saturday night.
Emig took the lead with Chaney and Brett Strickler racing wheel to wheel for second, but the caution flag waved before a lap was completed. Kane Eichenlaub nearly got upside-down in turn 3.
The field lined up for a complete restart with Emig once again taking the lead. A three-car battle for second between Chaney, Strickler and Brett Wanner was well underway when the caution came out again on lap 1. Ashley Cappetta and Chris Frank were tangled up in the bottom of turn 4.
Emig led Strickler, Chaney, Wanner and Adrian Shaffer on the restart. Wanner slid Chaney in turns 3 and 4 to take third. Shaffer followed moving up to fourth.
Emig was pulling away as Strickler and Wanner battled for second. Wanner took the runner up spot as Emig pulled off the track on lap 4. Wanner inherited the lead after Emig’s misfortune.
Kody Hartlaub, who was pulling double duty running both 410 and 358 sprints on Saturday, battled Chaney for fifth. The two race wheel to wheel with Hartlaub taking the spot at the line on lap 8.
Just as Wanner was catching the tail end of the field the yellow flag waved on lap 9 for Jake Miller who was sitting backwards in turn 4.
Wanner shot out to the lead on the restart as Strickler held off Shaffer as he challenged for second.
Wanner had a dominate lead of 4.963 seconds with 5 laps to go. Once again Wanner was closing in on lapped traffic.

Jordan Strickler stopped on the front stretch bringing out the caution on the restart.
