8.18.17 Quick Results: Bowser Dominates Sprints; Shingledecker Holds Off Williamson; Norris And McPherson Cruise to Victory Lane
Sarver, PA (August 18, 2017) Sarver, PA (August 18, 2017) For the first time since July 14, the Fab Four weekly racing divisions fueled by Turner’s Premium Iced Tea, graced the clay on Friday night. And while their absence due to rain over the recent weeks made for a long wait, the racing on display in front of a packed grandstand was worth it. Carl Bowser put on a clinic in the Peoples Natural Gas Sprint Car feature by checking out in both clean air and lapped traffic, while surviving a spin that nearly ruined his night en route to victory lane. It was the former track champion’s first feature victory of 2017.
The battle of the night came in the Diehl Automotive DIRTcar Big Block Modifieds where Mat Williamson’s season long dominance was interrupted by Jeremiah Shingledecker. The former track champion held off Williamson’s furious charge over the final 10 laps to take his first victory of the season at The Action Track.
Corey McPherson made quick work of the Millerstown Pic-A-Part field on hand for the sixth time in 2017 as he made his way around Tyler Dietz and never looked back after several restarts in a caution marred, 20 lap feature. McPherson’s victory clinched his fifth career track championship with one week remaining in the regular season.

The Story From Lernerville: Shingledecker Wins Thriller; Bowser Spins To Win; Norris Inches Closer to Title; McPherson Rules Pro Stocks
Sarver, PA (August 19, 2017) It was just what the doctor ordered. Beautiful skies surrounded Lernerville Speedway on Friday night, and the racing on the track produced two very memorable moments that resulted in victories from drivers who had yet to make an appearance in victory lane in 2017. While at the same time, two drivers that have consistently been the class of the field all season, demonstrated their dominance once again. It was a great night to chase away the misery that comes with three straight weeks of rain outs.
Carl Bowser looked to have victory firmly within his grasp until a late race spin nearly cost him a sure feature win in the 25 lap Peoples Natural Gas Sprint main event. However, he was able to shrug off the momentary setback and rain away from the field on his way to victory lane. Jeremiah Shingledecker’s performance in holding off a late charging Mat Williamson in the Diehl Automotive DIRTcar Big Block Modified feature may just be remembered for years to come as the veteran pilot managed to get add another win to his career total. Michael Norris put the Precise Racing Products DIRTcar Late Models behind him with authority and Corey McPherson came through the field like a knife through warm butter yet again has he collected his sixth win of the season, and another track championship as well.
