Fab Four Race Report 6.7 - King, Lynch, Pegher & Flick win features

Rex King Jr. holds off Mat Williamson to score career first Diehl Mods win
Apollo doubleheader as Lynch & Flick score wins in Sprints & Sportsman
Mike Pegher Jr. pilots #1 Cochran Late Model to familiar end point

Sarver, PA (June 9, 2013) For the second straight week, the Action Track lived up to its nickname as Thursday’s soaking rains and Friday’s overcast, but humid conditions made for another fast, racy surface and the “Finest race fans in the world” were treated to another Fast Friday of Fab Four Racing.  Rex King Jr. led wire-to-wire to notch his first career Lernerville feature win in the Diehl Auto Group DIRTcar Northeast Modifieds, but had to hold off a late charge by Budweiser Points leader Mat Williamson and a green-white-checkered restart to do so. 

Fab Four Quick Results 6.7

Rex King Jr. scores career first Lernerville feature win in the Diehl Mods
The Apollo Rocket holds of trio of Williams, Bowser & Matus to score #108
Mike Pegher Jr. scores career first Super Late Model win in the #1 Cochran Late Model
AJ Flick goes three-wide to pass Schneider & Kelley to win his first feature of the season

Sarver, PA (June 7, 2013) After an all day soaking yesterday, the Action Track was wet, tacky and fast again Friday Night.  Rex King Jr. started the night with a wire-to-wire feature win in the Diehl Mods after starting alongside his father on the front row and after holding off a furious charge from Mat Williamson on a green-white-checkered restart.  Ed Lynch Jr. followed with his 108th career feature win, (107th in the Peoples TWP Sprints), but never did shake the trio of Eric Williams, Carl Bowser and Brandon Matus who chased Lynch the whole way to the finish line.  Mike Pegher Jr., winner of 11 Pure Stock feature wins and a handful of Crate Late Model wins, scored an almost identical win to King’s by leading wire-to-wire, but holding off a late and furious challenger from Defending Track Champion Jared Miley.  Miley raced him hard and clean, but settled for second when he could have easily stuffed him into the wall at any point in the second half of the race, but Pegher drove the iconic #1 Cochran Late Model into Sheetz Victory Lane unscathed.  AJ Flick capped off the night with a thrilling move on a late race restart; diving below Chris Schneider and Joe Kelley to take the lead down the back straightaway and held on to win his first Pic-A-Part Sportsman feature of the season.

Fab Four Quick Results 5.17 - Swartzlander, Lynch, Miley & McPherson win

Brian Swartzlander and Ed Lynch Jr. add to Hall of Fame resumes
Defending Champs Jared Miley and Corey McPherson victorious
King family goes three for three in heat race victories

Sarver, PA (May 17, 2013) On a perfect, summerlike night, All Time division wins leaders Brian Swartzlander (Diehl Mods) and Ed Lynch Jr. (Peoples TWP Sprints) added to their Hall of Fame resumes with career feature wins #78 and #106 respectively.  And while it’s early to start talking about Hall of Fame credentials for Jared Miley (Precise Lates) and Corey McPherson (Pic-A-Part Sportsman), both Defending Track Champions scored dominant feature wins tonight.  The “Kings of Racing” Rex King Sr., Rex King Jr. and Russell King all scored heat race wins tonight; a feat which had most likely never been accomplished!  Surely there were nights when both Bob Wearing Sr. & Jr. won heats or Lou & Dale Blaney, but nobody in the press box could a recall a father and two son heat race win sweep! 

The Juice scores a sweet win - Fab Four Race Report 5.3

Davey Johnson and Corey McPherson dominate bookend features
Mat Williamson and Cap Henry seal the deal in the closing laps to win
Breast Cancer Awareness Night donations total $1162!

Sarver, PA (May 3, 2013) Friday Night’s features were ones of utter dominance or thrilling late race passes for the lead.  Davey Johnson, easily a generation older than everyone in his proverbial rearview mirror, was absolutely dominant leading every lap of the Precise Late Model feature.  Both Jim Weller Jr. in the Diehl Mods and Danny Holtgraver in the Peoples TWP Sprints looked to replicate Johnson’s feat, only to see victory slip away in the closing laps to Mat Williamson and Cap Henry respectively.  Defending Pic-A-Part Sportsman Track Champion Corey McPherson bookended the night with another dominant performance to score his first win of 2013.  But the biggest winners Friday Night were the generous fans who donated $1162 to Komen for the Cure; our biggest total to date!  Thank you very sincerely to everyone that generously donated their hard-earned money to this noble cause!

Opening Night 2013 Race Report 4.26

It was the best of times; it was the worst of times . . .
Sodeman, Hess, Williamson and Egley score Opening Night wins
Bowser, Ellenberger, Pegher, Swartzlander and Fosnaught struggle

Sarver, PA (April 26, 2013) Opening Night 2013 was a mixed bag of results as four drivers celebrated the new campaign in Sheetz Victory Lane, while others left in anger and frustration! For Jack Sodeman Jr. in the Peoples TWP Sprints, Dave Hess Jr. in the Precise Late Models, Mat Williamson in the Diehl Mods and Bob Egley in the Pic-A-Part Sportsman, Opening Night wins were the perfect way to kick start a run at the Budweiser Track Championships.  For guys like Carl Bowser and Mike Pegher, (whose engines failed them before they logged a single lap in competition), or guys like Brian Ellenberger, Brian Swartzlander or Jim Fosnaught, (who watched helplessly as the opportunity to stand in Sheetz Victory Lane was yanked out from under them), Opening Night ended far differently than their hopes and intentions.

Swartzlander light at scales, Mat Williamson picks up the win

Bob Egley endures a wild finish in the Sportsman

Sarver, PA (April 26, 2013) The 2013 Fab Four Racing season started off with a bang, as Jack Sodeman Jr. won a wild Peoples TWP DIRTcar Sprint feature after early leader Brian Ellenberger broke at the flagstand on lap 14 and restart leader Eric “Turkey” Williams jumped the cushion in turns one & two.  Dave Hess Jr. appears to be back to 100% after back surgery delayed his 2012 season.  Hess scored the win over a hard charging Jared Miley and Ron Davies who raced to a third place finish from the B-Main!  Brian Swartzlander and Canadian young gun Mat Williamson traded the lead multiple times under green flag conditions on the track and then one final time AFTER the races, as Swartzlander came up light at the scales after taking the checkers for a 78th time; giving the win to Williamson.  Jim Fosnaught got collected by a lapped car in turn two on the final lap and then Mike Miller got a little bit slideways exiting turn four coming to the white flag on the ensuing restart.  Defending Track Champion Corey McPherson had nowhere to go and got into Miller, spinning him out.  Bob Egley inherited the lead for a second Green-White-Checkered restart, but had to hold off a roughshod Paul Schreckengost and a rim riding Corey McPherson to score the Opening Night win in Pic-A-Part Sportsman.
