Wolfe Makes it Two in a Row at Port Royal
PORT ROYAL, Pa. (June 3, 2017) – Lucas Wolfe of Mechanicsburg wired the field to record his second Port Royal Speedway sprint car win in six days on Saturday night, taking $3,200 for the victory.
The win was Wolfe’s second in as many days after having also won on Friday night at Williams Grove Speeedway and accounting for his win last Monday at Port Royal in the Bob Weikert Memorial, the win at Williams Grove and again at Port Royal on Saturday, Wolfe pushed his six-day accumulated total earnings to $17,000 in 85 total feature laps.
Wolfe started second in the 410 sprint car main and was trailed by polesitter Blane Heimbach early as he entered the backmarkers on the eighth lap.
Setting a blistering pace around the big half-mile, Wolfe was annihilating the field, a bit more than a half lap ahead of second place Brock Zearfoss on lap 12 when the only caution flag of the race unfurled.
Prior to the caution, Wolfe had a whopping 7.1 second lead over Zearfoss.
Zearfoss took second from Heimbach on the 10th tour but hadn’t been able to close on Wolfe at all.
The restart saw eighth starter Danny Dietrich up to fourth and Dietrich continued his march forward, taking third on the restart and second from a rebounding Heimbach with nine laps to go.
Wolfe didn’t check out nearly as much during the final stages as Dietrich was at least able to keep him in sight, finishing 3.212 seconds behind at the finish.
A fantastic run from the 14th starting spot for Dylan Cisney excited the fans as the Port Royal driver mustered up to third before the checkers could fall.
Zearfoss was fourth followed by Doug Esh.
Sixth through 10th went to Mike Wagner, Heimbach, TJ Stutts, Rick Lafferty and Joey Hershey.
With the finish, Cisney took a narrow lead in the season point standings over Esh.
Heats went to Stutts and Dietrich.
410 sprints, 25 laps: 1. Lucas Wolfe, 2. Danny Dietrich, 3. Dylan Cisney, 4. Brock Zearfoss, 5. Doug Esh, 6. Mike Wagner, 7. Blane Heimbach, 8. TJ Stutts, 9. Rick Lafferty, 10. Joey Hershey, 11.
