Fab Four Racing Season Review/Steel City Stampede Preview

Sarver, PA (October 17, 2013) The Diehl Auto Group DIRTcar Big Block Modifieds has been dominated by the “Usual Suspects” for the better part of a decade; Brian Swartzlander, Dave Murdick, Jeremiah Shingledecker and previously Kevin Bolland and Del Rougeux.  But that all changed in 2013 with what began as a Canadian Invasion on Championship Night 2012 and ended with Mat Williamson standing in Sheetz Victory Lane a year later as the 2013 Track Championship after winning his fifth feature of the season.

All Time Wins Leader Joe Kelley ends the season in style
Fab Four Racing Season Review/Steel City Stampede Preview

Sarver, PA (October 22, 2013) If you’re Corey McPherson, how do you top a five-win Championship season?  You go out and win seven features to defend your title.  But despite winning two more races in 2013 than he did in 2012, the defense proved much tougher than winning the first.  AJ Flick led the Budweiser Point Standings for most of the summer and gave McPherson all he could handle.  But in the end, McPherson was just too strong down the stretch and scored his second straight Track Championship in the ultra-competitive Millerstown Pic-A-Part DIRTcar Sportsman division.

Steel City Stampede Flashback – Garvin finally cashes in!


Steel City Stampede Flashback – John Garvin Jr. finally cashes in!

Sarver, PA (April 12, 2013) John Garvin Jr. owns and operates, along with his father John Garvin Sr., a salvage yard literally in the shadows of Lernerville Speedway.  Any Tom, Dick or Harry can drop off and cash in on a load of scrap, but Garvin himself has not been able to cash in at Lernerville Speedway; that it is until last October at the Third Annual DIRTcar Round Up Steel City Stampede! 


Prior to the Steel City Stampede, Garvin had collected four top tens in 2011 and had a few cracks at his first Precise Late Model feature win, but hadn’t sealed the deal.  Maybe all Garvin needed was for the lights to be off.  Racing features in the daylight of the Sunday afternoon rain date for the second time in three years, Garvin held off fellow junkyard dog and Sarver native Michael Norris to cash in on a $3,000 payday and fulfill a lifelong dream of standing in Sheetz Victory Lane.  Norris battled Garvin for most of the race, but late race contact Garrett Krummert allowed Garvin to cruise to the popular win.  Norris and Krummert chased Garvin to the checkered flag, followed by Chad Valone and Jared Miley.


This Sunday’s feature could provide another Lernerville career feature win for another Sarver/Freeport area driver as Dan Swartzlander starts on the pole for the $3,000-to-win Precise Racing Products DIRTcar Late Models A-Main and he just so happened to buy an engine from Garvin after breaking a motor at Hagerstown two weeks ago.  Dan is, of course, the son of Inaugural Hall of Fame Inductee Dick Swartzlander.  Dick has 13 career Late Model wins, as well as wins in the Sprints and Modifieds, and while Dan has feature wins at Marion Center and Dog Hollow to his credit, he has yet to stand Sheetz Victory Lane at his home track.


Garrett Krummert is also seeking his first career Lernerville feature win, but has Late Model wins at Attica Raceway Park in Ohio and Modified wins at Mercer Raceway Park, plus some Sprint Car experience at Lernerville in the Kelsey George #43.  Garrett starts fifth in Sunday’s $3,000-to-win Stampede Finale.


Pit gates and tech inspection open at 11:00AM, the grandstands open at 1:00PM and racing will start at 3:00PM.  For more details about Sunday’s DIRTcar Round Up Steel City Stampede Finale, log on to www.Lernerville.com and click the Steel City Stampede link.
