Invader Rusty Martz claims top prize at Advance Auto Parts Autumn-Motive Family Fun Fest by claiming $2,000 Sportsman/Stock Spectacular!

McDonald, Bauman, Noland, Crynock, Seibert and Kids also win!


September 18, 2011 (Sarver, PA) The Millerstown Pic-A-Part DIRTcar Sportsman/Stock division took center stage last night during Advance Auto Parts Autumn-Motive Family Fun Fest.  But it wasn’t 2011 Track Champion Mike Miller, All Time division wins leader Joe Kelley, 2011 wins leader Chris Schneider or 2009 Rookie of the Year Corey McPherson that celebrated another win Sheetz Victory Lane.  Instead, Central PA invader Rusty Martz, winner of this event in 2008 and winner of the Inaugural DIRTcar Round Up Steel City Stampede Sportsman/Stock feature in 2009, took his third big money checkered flag at the Action Track!  Despite just running the big Sportsman/Stock shows at the Action Track, Martz definitely knows his way around the 4/10-mile Sarver Speedplant!


Martz was fast right out of the box, setting quick time in his qualifying group, winning his heat race and again in the feature where he passed Corey McPherson for the lead on lap 10.  A handful of cautions would follow, but on each restart, Martz took the outside pole for the restart and rocketed off the top of turn four to solid restarts.  McPherson continually challenged Martz on the bottom of turns one & two to a brief lead, only to see Martz power off turn two and down the back straightaway to maintain the lead.  This went on for 11 laps, until lap 21 when Chris Schneider took second place.  McPherson’s tire started to go flat and he was shuffled back outside the top five, and eventually retired early on lap 26 to finish a disappointing 18th.


The battle for the lead continued with Martz on the highside and Schneider challenging on the bottom and middle grooves, but the SS Chassis guru and leader in divisions wins in 2011 could not find a way to get around Martz who cruised to Sheetz Victory Lane for a $2,000 payday and his third feature win in big money Sportsman/Stock division events at the Action Track.  Martz will likely be back in October for the DIRTcar Round Up Steel City Stampede!


Chris Schneider chased Martz to the checkered flag to finish second.  2011 Budweiser Track Champion Mike Miller raced home third ahead of Joe Kelley in fourth and Rob Shook in fifth.  Kelley came from the tail of the field to finish fourth after pitting on lap eight.  The Sportsman/Stock Spectacular top ten rounded out with Jeff Walters, Greg Beach, AJ Flick, Ryan Moyer and Brett McDonald.  Moyer had previously won B-Main #1 and came from 21st on the starting grid to score an impressive top ten finish, while Brett McDonald went on to win the non-winner’s feature. 


Earlier in the evening, Rob Shook set fast time during group qualifying with a best lap of 19.885 seconds.  Corey McPherson was the only other driver to break the 20 second barrier.  His best lap was 19.938.  Heat races were checkered by Joe Kelley, Rusty Martz, Mike Miller and Rob Shook.  A fan redraw put Corey McPherson on the pole for the dash.  McPherson won that dash and started on the pole for the feature.


In other competition, Action Track prep crew member Jarred Bauman won the School Bus feature over Sam Duncan of Duncan Towing, a regular member of the Lernerville tow truck team. 


Veteran driver Glenn Noland won an exciting, but uneventful Figure 8 race and went on to lead most of the 100-lap Enduro.  Noland jumped the cushion in three & four somewhere around lap 70 to forfeit the lead.  He would return, but was multiple laps down and finished outside the top five. 


Paul J. Crynock III won the Enduro, followed by Keith Sherwin, Tim Gillette, Dave Seibert Jr. and Cody McNaughton. 


Don Seibert held on to win the Demolition Derby over Bob Sweitzer and Jeremy Rybarick.


Over 100 kids also took to the Action Track for the always popular Kid’s Bike races.  Trophies were awarded to the winners by Ms. Firecracker 2011 Samantha McCullough and every one in competition received a ribbon for their finishing position.


We’ll be back in action next Saturday Night, September 24 for the World of Outlaws Commonwealth Clash, then take a few weeks off to prepare for the Third Annual DIRTcar Round Up Steel City Stampede on Thursday-Friday-Saturday, October 20-21-22.
