Working Man Weekend Gets a New Look
CONCORD, NC. – Aug. 3, 2016 – The Working Man at Lernerville will feature a new format for the blockbuster weekend. For the first time in series history, there will be no heat races in the program. On Friday, Sept. 2, there will be qualifying and 25-lap qualifying features that pay $2,500-to-win. The car count will determine how many qualifying features there are. If the car count exceeds 40, there will be three qualifying features; if the car count exceeds 60, there will be four qualifying features. The finale on Saturday, Sept. 3 will host Last Chance Showdown races and a 75-lap, $20,000-to-win feature.
How drivers finish in the qualifying features will determine where they advance for Saturday’s finale. Drivers will either transfer directly to the feature or will have a final opportunity to make the show through one of the Last Chance Showdown races.
“I’m excited to go back to Lernerville,” said Shane Clanton, who won the event last season. “We’re good every time we go. Hopefully this year is no exception.” Clanton, the defending series champion, scored his 30th career win at the Working Man last season, snapping an eight-race winless streak.
Four of a kind; Norris, Swartzlander, Bowser & Dietz double up
Sarver, PA (August 12, 2016) Despite a little bit of a late start opening the gates due to a passing shower at 4:30, the skies cleared up, but the heat and humidity returned to provide a fast race track tonight for Turner Dairy Farm Night of Fab4 Fueled by Turner’s Premium Iced Teas. In the opening laps of the Precise Late Model feature, early leader Mike Pegher Jr. r fell victim to a back-marker and surrendered the lead to Michael Norris on lap eight who never looked back despite a series of cautions. Norris held strong on the restarts and cruised to his second win of the season.
Brian Swartzlander passed early leader Rex King Jr. on lap 15 of the Diehl Modifieds feature to score his second win of the season and 92nd of his surefire Hall of Fame Career. Carl Bowser, like Norris, was in the right place at the right time to inherit the lead after early pacesetter Brandon Spithaler sailed off the top of turn three on lap 18. Bowser then held off the furious advances of Dan Shetler to score his second win of the season and 21st of his career. Tyler Dietz followed Swartzlander’s lead of patiently waiting to make the pass for the lead, dispatching an upstart Noah Brunell on lap 13. Once out front, Dietz rolled to his second win of the season in the Millerstown Pic-A-Part Sportsman, but Brunell’s time will come soon enough!
