SELINSGROVE, Pa. - Scott Haus of Hamburg wired the field for his victory in the Sixth Annual Salem RV Center Late Model Open Saturday night at Selinsgrove Speedway. The win, Haus' first in the Open following three previous second-place finishes, was worth $2,000.

Jake Raudabaugh of Carlisle became the 11th different 358 sprint car winner of the season in the 25-lap feature. The win was the first of Raudabaugh's career at Selinsgrove Speedway.

Troy Miller of Williamstown strengthened his point lead with his third win of the season in the 15-lap pro stock feature, while the two 12-lap roadrunner features were won by Keith Bissinger of Orangeville and Brad Mitch of McClure.

Selinsgrove Speedway returns to racing action on Saturday, July 10 with a racing program of sprint cars, late models, pro stocks and roadrunners sponsored by Foss Jewelers. Also visiting the speedway will be the Williams Grove Oldtimers organization. Gates open at 5 p.m., with racing at 7 p.m.

Second-place starter Scott Haus drove into the lead at the start of the Late Model Open. A close three-car battle quickly developed at the front of the pack between Haus, polesitter Brian Cochran and sixth-place starter Jeff Rine.

On the ninth circuit, fifth-place starter Donnie Schick charged into third, then horsepowered his way into second on the 11th circuit. Schick quickly reeled in Haus at the front of the pack.

The race was red flagged on lap 12 for a nine-car pileup on the backstretch. Colby Frye of York was transported to an area hospital for further evaluation.

When the race resumed, Haus continued to set the pace with Schick and Jeff Rine in close pursuit. In the final laps, ninth-place starter Jim Yoder closed in on the leaders in the fourth position. At the finish, Haus was victorious by 1.19 seconds over Schick, Rine, Yoder and Cochran.

Polesitter Kyle Bachman powered into the lead at the start of the sprint car feature. Bachman was chased by second-place starter Charlie Anderson for the first five laps before sixth-place starter Jake Raudabaugh advanced to second.

The event's first caution flag unfurled on lap seven when Duane Mausteller stopped his racer on the frontstretch. On the lap eight restart, Nate Snyder, who started eighth and was racing third, stormed around Raudabaugh in the second turn for the runner up position. Then, in turn three, Snyder took the lead from Bachman with an inside pass.

Once in front, Snyder streaked away from the field while Raudabaugh and 13th-place starter Jason Shultz followed him. Snyder led until the 16th lap when he made contact with a lapped car in turn four and spun against the guadrail. Although he was able to restart, Raudabaugh found himself in the lead for restart.

Raudabaugh drove to a convincing win over Shultz, 10th-place starter Justin Zimmerman, seventh-place starter Davie Franek and ninth-place starter Dave Calaman.

Third-place starter Meade Hahn led the first 10 laps of the pro stock feature until withdrawing from the race. At this point, 10th-place starter Troy Miller, who moved into second on lap eight, inherited the lead and led the rest of the way for the win over 13th-place starter Brad Trump, fifth-place starter Dan Jensen, 17th-place starter Jim Payne and 20th-place starter Nate Kerstetter.

In the makeup roadrunner feature, sixth-place starter Keith Bissinger wired the field for his eighth win of the year over Gary Kerstetter, Jim Somers, Brad Mitch and Tom Brunsen.

The regularly scheduled roadrunner feature was completed in record time of 5:38.97. Fourth-place starter Cory Long led the first six laps before sixth-place starter Brad Mitch took command of the field. Mitch held off any challenges and posted the win over Jim Somers, Long, Keith Bissinger and Gary Kerstetter.
