HAUS, YODER, MOSER & ALTOBELLI SCORE WINS ON STOCK CAR SATURDAY NIGHT
SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Andy Haus of Hamburg held off the challenges of Herndon’s Brett Schadel to become the seventh different winner in as many races this season at Selinsgrove Speedway in Saturday night’s 25-lap super late model main event.
The $3,000 victory was the fifth of Haus’ career at the track.
Andrew Yoder of Middleburg pulled off the “hat trick” by winning his third straight 20-lap limited late model race at the track this season.
In the first return of the pro stock division to the track since 2019, Brandon Moser of Middleburg came out the winner of the 28-lap C.W. Smith Memorial.
The 15-lap mid-Atlantic modified race was won by Michael Altobelli Jr. of Saxton.
Selinsgrove Speedway will present the Middleswarth Potato Chips PA Speedweek Opperman-Bogar-Heintzelman Memorial for 410 sprint cars at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, July 3. The 30-lap main event will pay $10,099 to win. Joining the 410 sprint cars will be the PASS 305 sprint cars. Gates will open at 4 p.m.
Second-place starter Andy Haus beat out polesitter Brett Schadel for the lead at the drop of the green flag in the super late model main event. The race quickly turned into a high-speed chase through slower traffic as Schadel kept Haus in his sights for most of the event. Fourth-place starter Gene Knaub and eighth-place starter Jeff Rine were also in close pursuit.
On the 19th lap, the caution flag unfurled for Rine whose car developed mechanical issues. In the final laps, Schadel had closed in within .34 of a second of the leader. On a lap 20 restart, seventh-place starter Bryan Bernheisel rocketed into third as his father sixth-place starter Jim Bernheisel followed him into fourth.
At the finish, Haus scored the win by 1.8 seconds over Schadel, B. Bernheisel, J. Bernheisel, and Knaub.
Tommy Dawson started on the pole for the pro stock race and powered into the early lead. On the second lap, a seven-car pileup in turn three stopped the race. All drivers escaped injury.
When the race resumed, Dawson led eighth-place starter Brad Mitch and fourth-place starter Brandon Moser. Mitch took command of the field on lap six with a pass in turn four. In the second half of the race, ninth-place starter Jason Geesaman stormed into the runner up position and set his sights on Mitch.
Late in the race, Mitch and Geesaman see-sawed for the lead for several laps until Mitch struck the third turn wall and was forced to withdraw from the race. With Geesaman on the point, Moser entered the picture and made the winning pass with one lap to go as Geesaman’s car developed issues.
Moser was victorious by just .84 of a second over sixth-place starter Jason Smith, third-place starter Cory Long, 18th-place starter AJ Hoffman, and 14th-place starter Terry Lauver.
Polesitter Andrew Yoder pulled into the lead at the start of the limited late model main event. A. Yoder was chased by third-place starter Devin Hart for most of the event. At the halfway point, a four-car battle for the third position unfolded between fourth-place starter Jim Yoder, sixth-place starter Shaun Miller, ninth-place starter Trent Brenneman, and second-place starter Kenny Yoder.
In the closing laps Brenneman showed a lot of speed and moved into second. In slower traffic Brenneman gained on A. Yoder but came up 1.4 seconds short at the finish line. Miller, Hart, and eighth-place starter Dalton Bigler rounded out the top five.
Second-place starter George Dixon led the first 10 laps of the mid-Atlantic modified feature until polesitter Michael Altabelli made the winning pass using the inside lane in turn two on the 11th circuit.
Altabelli went on to take the checkered flag by 1.8 seconds over Dixon, Ray Kable, Justin Cullum, and Devin Frey.
