Jason Shultz Dominates 19th Annual Joe Whitcomb Memorial at Selinsgrove Speedway

SELINSGROVE, PA – Dominant is the easiest way to describe the A-Main that Carlisle, Pa driver Jason Shultz ran Saturday night at Selinsgrove Speedway, winning by nearly 14 seconds over the second-place driver, Derek Locke.

22 cars were signed in for the 19th annual Joe Whitcomb Memorial, where it was Shultz starting alongside Parker Evans, and they would bring the field to green. Evans would challenge early, but Shultz would begin to pull away from Evans and the rest of the field. Meanwhile, Derek Locke, Davie Franek, Jake Karklin, and Adam Carberry would shuffle for a position in the top five, all while Shultz continued to build his lead.

The only caution would happen on lap three when Jason Wagner would stop in turn two. A single file restart allowed Shultz to get out in clean air and pull away from the field. One driver who would continue to move forward was Mark Smith, who started in ninth and maneuvered his way up through the field into the top five, where he would go toe to toe with Jake Karklin.

As laps clicked, Shultz would continue to separate himself from the rest of the field, passing lap cars left and right.

By lap 18, Smith found himself up to third and started to track down second-place driver Derek Locke, and the two would contest for it. Karklin would sit uncontested for fourth, while Davie Franek and Adam Carberry would race for the final top-five position.




In the end, it was Shultz lapping to the eighth place and scoring his second career Joe Whitcomb memorial event over Derek Locke and Mark Smith.

Heat race winners went to Locke, Jordan Thomas, and Mike Thompson. A unique format where the heats were set by time trials and that was set by Adam Carberry.

This was the Patriot’s first of three races in June, with the next one coming up this Friday, June 17, at the Utica Rome Speedway.
