Outlaws Return to Lernerville Speedway for Commonwealth Clash
Sarver, PA (September 19, 2017) The World of Outlaws Craftsman® Sprint Car Series schedule is winding down, which means the annual Commonwealth Clash at Lernerville Speedway is upon us. This year’s Commonwealth Clash takes place on Saturday, September 23.
During the World of Outlaws July visit to Lernerville, reigning Series Champion Donny Schatz claimed the Don Martin Memorial Silver Cup after Sheldon Haudenschild jumped the cushion seeking his first career World of Outlaws victory.
Since then, Lernerville has crowned a 410 Sprint Cars track champion. Apollo, PA’s AJ Flick claimed his second career track title and will represent the local contingency when the Outlaws invade Western Pennsylvania once again.
The Greatest Show on Dirt has a rich history at the Lernerville Speedway dating back to 1979, when The King, Steve Kinser, claimed the first World of Outlaws win at the 4/10th-mile oval.
Quick Results 9.16.17- McPherson Delivers A Night For The Ages; Jones Bests Allegheny 305 Sprints; Wolbert Cruises To Victory Lane
Sarver, PA (September 17, 2017 ) Cory McPherson delivered a performance that will be remembered for quite some time as he took two convincing victories in two of the biggest races of the season in the Pro Stock ranks. The five time track champion took the lead from Tyler Dietz on lap nine and never looked back in his victory in the 25-lap Millerstown Pic-A-Part DIRTcar/RUSH Pro Stock main event.
However, one just wasn’t enough for McPherson as he found himself taking an early lead in the Homak Penn-Ohio Pro Stock main event where he used his normal Friday night crate power plant in a field loaded with open motors. McPherson looked to be in command until the second half of the 25-lap feature when the red hot Andrew Gordon drew even with his back bumper and battled for the lead over the course of the last five laps. As lapped traffic approached for McPherson, Gordon looked to have a run going with two laps to go as he made a bid for the lead, but McPherson was able to make a well timed move on top of the speedway to get around two lapped cars, leaving them for Gordon to deal with, and managed to hold him off the rest of the way to collect his second victory on the night.
