RAHMER, WHITTINGTON SCORE WINS FOR J&J
McKENZIE, TN (March 30) -- Fred Rahmer had a career-high 34 wins last year in the Joe Harz Racing #88h J&J. So far in 2005 at Lincoln Speedway, he is three for three including Saturday's victory at the half-mile dirt oval in Central Pennsylvania. Rahmer led the nation in victories last season and continues to carry the J&J Auto Racing banner to victory lane this season. Rahmer wasn't the only J&J runner that was victorious this past weekend, as Lane Whittington kicked off the Cajun Sprinters Association season with a victory at Southern Speedway in Hattiesburg, MS, driving the Gatwood Motorsports #9 J&J.
Fred Rahmer took advantage of his third place starting position in Saturday's 25-lap sprint car feature at Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, PA. Rahmer raced the Joe Harz Racing #88h J&J into the lead early and dominated the event leading all 25 laps. He was followed by fellow J&J runner, Eric Stambaugh in the Swope Racing #4 J&J.
Greg Hodnett brought the Hamilton Motorsports #77 J&J home fifth. Jason Johnson (who was sixth in the Kline #22 J&J) was joined in the top ten by Stevie Smith (who came home ninth in his #19 J&J), and Doug Esh (who finished 10th in the Leach Motorsports #30 J&J). Sam Scholsberg (#70 J&J), Jim Siegel (#59 J&J), Jeff Busby (#47 J&J), and Brent Kluge (#29k J&J) were also in the field.
Lane Whittington started the 2005 Cajun Sprinter Association season the same way he ended the 2004 campaign by winning the feature event. Whittington started the season opening event at Southern Speedway in Hattiesburg, MS, on the pole in his #9 J&J next to another J&J driver, Tracy Brown, in the #R14 J&J. Midway through the race, Shane Morgan had his J&J in second and trying to close in on Whittington. Whittington held on for the win and was joined in top five by Morgan (#01 J&J), who finished third ahead of Robert Casada (#K9 J&J), Lincoln Gatwood, who finished fifth in the #38 Briggs & Stratton J&J, and Rusty Sanford in the #12 Gatwood Motorsports J&J.
Other strong J&J finishes:
Greg Hodnett came up .43 seconds short of winning Friday's feature event at Williams Grove Speedway in the Hamilton #77 J&J. Jason Johnson, Brent Kluge and Doug Esh all finished in the top ten at the half-mile dirt oval.
Luke Dillon finished third at Borderline Speedway in his Smorgon Steel J&J on Saturday night, and Ian 'The Fly' Lewis scored a solid second on Sunday night at Premier Speedway in his #18 J&J.
