Rahmer on a Rail; Dominates Williams Grove Field

The O'Reilly All Star Circuit of Champions made another pilgrimage to the home of the PA Posse -- Williams Grove Speedway - on a hot, humid night to take on some of the best local competition in the country. All Star points leader Lance Dewease might have been the most comfortable All Star driver on the tour being that he is also one of the most successful central PA drivers in history. Hannagan, Wilson, McMahan, and the rest of the All Stars would try to gain valuable points on the leader as he showed them how to get around one of the most storied speedways in the country.

The A-main redraw for the Top 6 starting positions put Dewease on the front row alongside another Posse legend, Fast Freddie Rahmer. Rahmer would get the jump on the initial start and never looked back as the race went green to checkers with Rahmer setting a blistering pace. Dewease lost sight of the leader at the midpoint and had his hands full with Cody Darrah nipping at his heels.

Darrah got around Dewease as Rahmer checked out and put seven lapped cars and a straightaway between him and second place, showing once again why he is one of the winningest drivers in the sport. He went on to take the checkers on lap 30 with Darrah second followed by Dewease, Todd Shaffer, and Keith Kauffman rounding out the Top 5.

Stevie Smith and Brian Montieth put on a show for the fans coming from the back of the pack to bring home respectable finishes. Smith started 14th and crossed the finish line 6th. Monteith started 22nd and drove all the way up to 9th in what looked to be the fastest car on the track as the race went on.

Cody Darrah was the Kistler Engines Fast Qualifier for the night with a time of 17.030. Darrah has been a stand out in Central PA so far this season and has continued to impress with his performance at such a young age.

Heats were won by Dale Blaney, Cory Haas, Mark Smith, and Ryan Bohlke. Brian Leppo won the B-main. The All Star Dash was won by Dale Blaney.
