Lee Jacobs scores first career UNOH All Star Win - All Star Race Report 5.9

Lee Jacobs scores first career UNOH All Star Win at Lernerville

SARVER, PA. – Lee Jacobs watched his dad, Kenny, take the checkered 98 times against the University of Northwestern Ohio All Star Circuit of Champions. On Friday, because of threatening weather, Kenny decided to stay home as Lee took his team to Lernerville to battle the All Stars. It paid off for Lee as he scored his first career series win…and he couldn’t wait to call dad.

“This is a hell of a feeling to get my first All Star win at Lernerville…that’s where Dad had his last All Star win. And, to do it at a place where my car owners and my family have had so much success is pretty cool,” said Lee beside his Amanda Lewis/Simcox Grinding & Steel/Crown Investments/New Leaf Tree Service/OC Shocks/Butler Built/Fire & Ice Pub backed #81.

Dan Angelicchio and Adam Hilton take the checkers in RUSH Action

Sarver, PA (May 9, 2014) Despite a questionable forecast and mid-program drizzle, the All Star Sprints, RUSH Late Models and RUSH Sportsman Modifieds completed an action packed program with Lee Jacobs, Dan Angelicchio and Adam Hilton standing victorious in Sheetz Victory Lane. Lee Jacobs took advantage of starting from the outside pole to take the lead at the drop of the green flag. A handful of cautions and heavy lapped traffic in long stretches of green flag actions tested the mettle of Jacobs; son of All Time Sprint Great Kenny Jacobs. The Wild Child Jac Haudenschild once again lived up to his moniker by thrilling the crowd with slide jobs under and big runs off the top of turn four past polesitter Cole Duncan. Haudenschild and Duncan battled for second for much of the race, which allowed Jacobs to runaway virtually unchallenged for his first career Lernerville feature win. 2010 Track Champion Danny Holtgraver snookered Duncan late in the race for third. Former Track Champion and Multiple Time All Star Champion Dale Blaney also passed Duncan late for fourth which relegated Duncan to fifth. Dan Angelicchio stayed ahead of some chaotic incidents mid-pack to score his first career Lernerville feature win in the RUSH Late Model Series, while Adam Hilton of Buffalo, NY scored the feature win in the debut of the RUSH Sportsman Modified Series at the Action Track.

Breast Cancer Awareness Night nets $1,240 for Komen for the Cure

Sarver, PA (May 4, 2014)  Like so many things in life, a fast and tacky Action Track is always a love/hate siutation.  For the guy standing in Sheetz Victory Lane celebrating a breathtaking win with his family and crew, it was the best racing surface they’ll see all season, but not so much for the guy that suffered mechanical failure or had to see his racecar towed to the pits after a wreck.  The fast paced features were much to the liking of feature winners Alex Ferree, Rex King Jr., Carl Bowser and Corey McPherson, but drivers like Brandon Matus, John Garvin, Mike Pegher, Brian Swartzlander, Mat Williamson and Jeremiah Shingledecker did not like how their night came to an early end.

Sarver, PA (May 2, 2014) On a lightning fast track created by a week’s worth of rain and manicuring by the Action Track Prep Crew, Defending Precise Late Model Track Champion Alex Ferree and 2011 Peoples TWP Sprint Track Champion Carl Bowser took their #10 cars to Sheetz Victory Lane. Ferree inherited the lead after John Garvin Jr. went sailing off the top of turn two and Bowser passed Brandon Matus in the same turn to take the lead on unlucky lap 13 for Matus. Rex King Jr. scored the feature win in the Diehl Mods; his father Rex King Sr. chased him to the checkers in second. Corey McPherson brought the night to a close with a strong win in the Pic-A-Part Sportsman without much assistance from his power steering!

Opening Night sees Holtgraver, King, Swartzlander and Young in Sheetz Victory Lane

Sarver, PA (April 19, 2014)  There’s nothing quite like Opening Night at Lernerville Speedway; seeing familiar faces, smelling the fumes that evoke childhood memories of “the good old days” and most importantly, being back at our second home.  For drivers, winning on Opening Night is extra special because it starts the season on a high note that tends to carry on throughout the season.  None of tonight’s feature winners were new to Sheetz Victory Lane, but getting the first win of the season sure feels like winning for the first time all over again!

All Time Wins Leader Brian Swartzlander scores career feature win #83
Terry Young holds off Corey McPherson for Sportsman feature win

Sarver, PA (April 18, 2014)  Danny Holtgraver and Russ King have both won bigger races in their careers at Lernerville Speedway, (Holtgraver won an All Star feature two years ago and King won the Uncle Sam 30 last summer), but it’s always great to win on Opening Night!  Holtgraver had to run down fellow former Peoples TWP Sprint Car Track Champion Carl Bowser to score the feature win in a tune up for May 9’s All Star Circuit of Champions Sprint race presented by Turner’s Premium Iced Teas.  King officially led the entire race, but had to battle with Mike Pegher Jr. on lap 17 to score the Precise Late Models feature win.  Pegher drove past King on the back straightaway to briefly take the lead, but King battled back and took Pegher to the wall in turn four.  Pegher checked up, but contact was still made and King maintained the lead at the flagstand.  King then drove away from Pegher and Jared Miley to score the feature win.  Brian Swartzlander extended his All Time Division wins lead with his 83 career feature win in the Diehl Mods after passing early leader Rex King Sr. on lap four.  Terry Young capped off Opening Night with his fifth career feature win in the Pic-A-Part Sportsman over Back-to-Back Champ Corey McPherson.
