Bowser And Scott Win Thrillers Highlighting Stampede Night Two




Sarver, PA (October 14, 2018) Over 320 Cars completed over 690 laps of competition this weekend at The Action Track as the tenth annual Steel City Stampede came to it’s conclusion Saturday night. And by the time the final checkered flag fell on the 2018 season, fans had been treated to some fantastic finishes throughout the 12 main events that comprised the final night of racing action.

In the Peoples Gas DIRTcar Sprints, Carl Bowser defended his 2017 Stampede title in one of the more memorable finishes in event history. Three time track champion, AJ Flick started on the front row and looked to be well in command of the 25 car field as Jack Sodeman Jr. and Sye Lynch engaged in an entertaining battle for the second spot for a large portion of the 25 lap main event.

Behind them, Bowser was making his way through the field from his 14th starting spot with authority and after a late race restart, found himself in position to challenge for the win as he ran down Flick and made his way around for good on the final lap to earn the $3,000 payday and a second consecutive Stampede belt buckle.

Davis Scott started on the front row of the Precise Racing Products Late Model main event and would wind up in Terry Bowser Excavating Victory Lane, but it would be no easy task by any stretch. Scott assumed the early lead until all action was slowed by a lap two caution that saw Andrew Wylie spin in turns three and four while collecting Alex Ferree and Michael Lake. When action resumed, Colton Flinner made his way to the second spot with Russ King just behind him. The two drivers battled for position for a large portion of the race which allowed Scott some breathing room. King would eventually make his way around Flinner and set his sights on the leader. However, his bid for the win came up just short as Scott held on for his first career Late Model win at the Stampede.

Garrett Krummert drove away from what remained of the field in the Diehl Automotive Big Block Modified main event as a front stretch pileup on lap two took 11 cars out of the 22 car field. When racing resumed, Krummert completed a dominant performance as he built a stout lead over second running Rex King Sr and never looked back for his first Big Block Modified victory at Lernerville since 2015 and after having several close chances at victory in 2018.

In the Millerstown Pic-A-Part Pro Stocks, Chris Schneider completed a charge from his tenth starting spot. The multi-time Stampede champion made his way past leader Joey Zambotti on lap 15 and never looked back en route to victory lane. Meanwhile, Colton Flinner was the clash of the RUSH Late Model field on Saturday night as he made his way past Jeremy Wonderling with 10 laps to go and survived two late race restarts to preserve the $2,000 victory in touring series action. Jeremy Wonderling’s second place performance propelled him to the RUSH Late Model touring series championship when all was said and done Saturday night.

Jonathan Taylor managed to take yet another feature victory in UMP Modified action as he made his way past Dennis Lunger at the halfway point of the 20 lap main event. Taylor looked to be in firm control of the field until a series of late race cautions gave Gary Eicher an opportunity to snatch the win in the waning laps. However, Taylor was able to keep Eicher and the field at bay to hold on for the $1,000 feature vctory.

Jake Gomola looked to have the Allegheny Sprint Tour main event all but wrapped up. However, Robbie Bartchy brought a fast car to The Action Track once again and was able to get past Gomola in the final five laps to score his second 305 Sprint main event of the season at Lernerville. Meanwhile, Chad Ruhlman wired the 20 lap main event in RUSH Sprint Car action while at the same time, cementing his series championship in the same night.

Perhaps the most entertaining finish of the night took place in the RUSH Sportsman Modified main event as 14 year old Blaze Myers wrote his name in the event record books by charging forward from deep in the field and nipping Garrett Krummert for the win at the finish line. Krummert would manage to take the honors as RUSH Sportsman Modified Weekly and Touring series champion for 2018 with his second place run.

In Elite Modified Series action, Dennis Lunger made quck work of the field on hand and took the win 20 lap main after building a huge lead during green flag runs while pegging a series of late race restarts to ensure the victory. Meanwhile, Josh Boozel took his fourth consecutive Stampede belt buckle in a row as he bested the field on hand in the American Stel Processing 4 Cylinder main event. And in the 270cc Micro Sprint main event, Brian Borawiec made history becoming the first Micro Sprint feature winner in Steel City Stampede history.

Wrapping up the evening that was were the Enduro cars who made their third appearance of the season. And when all was said and done, Paul Crynock managed to halt Matt Feder’s bid to become a three time Enduro winner at The Action Track in 2018 as he passed Feder in the second half of the race and never looked back en route to victory lane.
