Stampede Flashback – Second go ‘round made Lernerville History!

 


Steel City Stampede Flashback – Second go ‘round made Lernerville History!
 

Sarver, PA (April 10, 2013) Building on the success of the Inaugural DIRTcar Round Up Steel City Stampede in 2009, the second running of the event in 2010 made Action Track history; the pits overflowed with over 220 cars in competition, forcing cars to pit in the infield for the very first time in the 40+ year history of Lernerville Speedway!  Highlighted by a door-to-door finish in the BRP Tour/Diehl Mods feature, the Second Annual Steel City Stampede wasn’t just about quantity; the quality of racing was fantastic!  Former Track Champion and multiple-time All Star Sprint Champion Dale Blaney blistered the Ti22 Sprint feature, while Jared Miley capped off his red hot end to the season with his third win in the final four races.  But the best races were contested in the Diehl Mods and Pic-A-Part Sportsman, but more about those scintillating finishes later in the week.

 

In the past few seasons, the huge Stampede car counts have resulted in two expansions of the pit area, but cars are still forced to pit in the infield.  The Steel City Stampede has become the perfect end to a racing season, featuring 10 divisions of racing over three nights with drivers come from all over Western and Central Pennsylvania, as well as New York, Ohio, Michigan and other states throughout the Midwest.  This year, however, the Steel City Stampede will kick off an action packed 2013 schedule with B-Mains and A-Mains followed by a 100-lap Enduro.  The Ti22/Peoples TWP Sprints, Precise Late Models and Diehl/BRP Modifieds will all be racing for $3,000-to-win and the Modified portion of the Stampede will be run under the prestigious banner of the “Kodiak Graham Memorial!”  The FASTRAK Northeast Late Models will duke it out with $2,000 on the line to the feature winner.  The UMP/UEMS Modifieds and Pic-A-Part Sportsman will race for $1,000-to-win and the 305 Sprints, 4-Cylinders and STARS Mod Lites will race for $500-to-win; all on Sunday, April 14 starting at 3:00PM.  Pit gates and tech inspection open at 11:00AM, the grandstands open at 1:00PM.

Steel City Stampede Flashback – Cole Duncan Steals the Show!



Steel City Stampede Flashback – Cole Duncan pulls off major upset of Ed Lynch Jr.
 

Sarver, PA (Tuesday, April 9, 2013) On a beautiful Sunday afternoon in October, 2009, Cole Duncan stole the show at the Inaugural DIRTcar Round Up Steel City Stampede by stealing a win away from All Time Sprint Car feature winner Ed Lynch Jr. on a green-white-checkers restart.  Lynch started on the outside pole and appeared to be on his way to a wire-to-wire victory until a late race caution opened the door for Duncan who found a patch of moisture through the middle of turns three & four and the traction allowed him to drive past Lynch on the restart as a stunned crowd rose to its feet.  Duncan then slid through turns one & two and took away Lynch’s line exiting turn two.  With the super slick track conditions of the breezy Sunday afternoon, Lynch could not regain the lead and had to follow the second generation driver, (Cole being the son of Ohio star Rodney Duncan), to the checkered flag.

 

This Sunday’s DIRTcar Round Up Steel City Stampede Sprint feature is scheduled to have a starting front row of former Track Champions and current All Stars Dale Blaney and Danny Holtgraver.  Blaney has won the past two Steel City Stampede Sprint features, as well as the final Sprint Car race at Lernerville in 2012 against the World of Outlaws at September’s Commonwealth Clash.  Holtgraver won the All Star Circuit of Champions Sprint feature earlier in September of 2012.

 

The Ti22 Sprints will be under Peoples TWP sponsorship in 2013 and will be back on Hoosier Racing Tires after a three year stint Goodyear.  The Lernerville Speedway would like to thank Ti22 Performance and Goodyear Racing Tires for their support of the DIRTcar Sprints the past few seasons and greatly looks forward to new beginnings with the fine folks from Peoples TWP and Hoosier Tire Mid-Atlantic!
