Firecracker 100 Local Perspective - Gregg Satterlee leads the way for the “home team”



Firecracker 100 Local Perspective - Gregg Satterlee leads the way for the “home team”


Sarver, PA (July 2, 2013) As always, the local and regional Late Model drivers came out in droves to support the three-day Firecracker 100 weekend and the results were a mixed bag!  For some drivers, just being in competition is enough; to be part of the biggest Late Model racing weekend in Pennsylvania is a mission accomplished.  For others, they want to measure themselves against the best Dirt Late Model drivers in the country and race into the A-Mains.  But for guys like Gregg Satterlee, Dave Hess Jr. and Davey Johnson, they want to equal the feats of Ed Lynch Jr., Tim Shaffer and Dale Blaney in the Sprint Car division by defending their home turf and adding a World of Outlaws Late Model Series A-Main win at Lernerville Speedway to their resume.  And while no local driver has conquered that mountain, Gregg Satterlee came the closest of any driver yet!

Fab Four Mid-Season Championship Quick Results 6.21



Jack Sodeman Jr. dominates the Peoples TWP Sprint feature; locked into Silver Cup
Ferree and Shingledecker notch first wins of 2013 and score Firecracker & Kodiak Memorial provisionals
Corey McPherson drives away with his fourth Pic-A-Part Sportsman feature of the season

Sarver, PA (June 21, 2013) Jack Sodeman Jr. had a triumphant reversal of fortune Friday Night by winning the Peoples TWP DIRTcar Sprints Mid-Season Championship just a week after a nasty flip ended his night early and junked the chassis.  Behind the wheel of a new XXX Chassis, Sodeman led all 25 laps of a caution-free feature.  Sodeman’s Mid-Season Championship locks him into the Don Martin Memorial Silver Cup XXII Twin 30s in July.  Budweiser Points leader Mat Williamson started on the outside pole of the Diehl Mods feature, but Jeremiah Shingledecker roared from fourth on the grid, passed Williamson on a mid-race restart and then drove to his first feature win of the season.  Alex Ferree started on the pole to the Precise Late Model A-Main and never looked back on the way to his first feature win of the season and in doing so secured a starting position in next Saturday Night’s Firecracker 100 A-Main.  Corey McPherson continued his domination of the Pic-A-Part Sportsman division with his fourth win in seven races, but had to fight off a spirited charge from Mike Miller mid-race to do so.  And now nothing remains between now and the 7th Annual Firecracker 100 presented by GottaRace.com except five grueling days waiting for Thursday and dozens of the best Late Model drivers in the country to roll into Sarvertown for the three-night megashow!

Fab Four Race Report 6.14 - Garvin & Williams win first of 2013



John Garvin Jr. maintains hold on points lead while scoring first win of 2013
Eric Williams wins a spirited battle over Carl Bowser; three reds mar feature
Repeat winners Brian Swartzlander and Corey McPherson dominate from pole to checkers


Sarver, PA (June 16, 2013) The Fab Four features on either side of the Holiday Races fireworks display were more like hand-to-hand combat between a pair of drivers than they were between an entire field of cars trying to get to Sheetz Victory Lane.  Though he dominated the Precise Late Model feature, John Garvin Jr. had brief but serious challenge from Michael Norris midrace.  Eric Williams won a furious battle with Carl Bowser through lapped traffic and had to endure three red flag sessions to score his first win of the season.  After another incredible fireworks show from the folks at Legendary Entertainment, Brian Swartzlander and Corey McPherson led their respective features from green-to-checkers, but had to fend off the advances of Mat Williamson and AJ Flick to seal the deal.

Another amazing pyrotechnic masterpiece on #1 Cochran Fan Appreciation Night!

Sarver, PA (June 14, 2013) John Garvin Jr. entered #1 Cochran Fan Appreciation Night as the Budweiser Points leader in the Precise Late Models but hadn’t been to Sheetz Victory yet in 2013.  After taking the lead from Brian Swartzlander on lap two, Garvin was virtually unchallenged on his way to Sheetz Victory Lane.  Eric Williams and Carl Bowser put on a thrilling show through lapped traffic in the Peoples TWP Sprint feature that was stopped thrice by red flags for flips by Jack Sodeman Jr., Dennis Wagner and Dan Kuriger; all three walked away!  Despite the spirited challenge by Bowser, Williams trotted into Victory Lane for his second career win and first of 2013.  Defending Track Champions Brian Swartzlander and Corey McPherson dominated the Diehl Mods and Pic-A-Part Sportsman features respectively; both from the inside pole.  In between the features, the skies lit up like the Fourth of July with another thrilling fireworks display from the pyrotechnic maniacs at Legendary Entertainment!

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.
