Ken Herman Wins First-Ever High Gear Speed Shop FASTRAK Feature; Nick Cramer and CJ Nicola End Dry Spells; Billy Holbert and Jared Hawkins Split Hoosier Tire Mid-Atlantic Super Late Models; Paul Koffler III Wins First On Dirt In The Newt’s York Bar Roadrunners.

 

                MARKLEYSBURG, PA (August 18, 2012) Jared Hawkins and Billy Holbert, both of Fairmont, WV, split the two Hoosier Tire Mid-Atlantic Super Late Model features at Roaring Knob Motorsports Complex on Saturday. Connellsville’s Ken Herman won his career first High Gear Speed Shop FASTRAK Late Model feature while Latrobe’s Nick Cramer ended a six year dry-spell winning the Modified feature. Paul Koffler III won his first feature on the dirt in the Newt’s York Bar Roadrunners and CJ Nicola took his first of the year in the Ft. Necessity Garage Chargers.  Todd Dennis won his fifth Krause Electric Street Stock feature.

                The make-up Hoosier Tire Mid-Atlantic Super Late Model feature started the night off. Matt Cosner led the first seven laps chased by Tim Senic.  Senic took the top spot on lap eight and took off.  What looked like a sure win changed on lap 20 when a lapped car spun and collected Senic also.  This handed the lead over to Jared Hawkins and he drove to his third feature win. Billy Holbert, Matt Cosner, Greg Gellner, Danny Mitchell, Scott Rhodes, Mel Minnick, Jr., LC Powers, Cody Hardesty and Mark Booth completed the top ten.

                Bob Nelson led the field of Krause Electric Street Stocks to the green.  Nelson only led two laps before the “Newell Nightmare” Todd Dennis sped past into the lead.  Dennis drove smooth on the slick track and went on to score his fifth feature win of 2012. Filling out the top ten behind him was Nelson, Ryan Newman, John Redshaw (Rozak #77), Jim Byers, Bob Miller, Michael Duritsky, Jason Gibbs, Charlie McClain and Ron Howard.  Heats were won by Nelson and Redshaw.

                The Modified feature looked like it was going to be an easy win for Dennis Perigo.  Perigo started on the pole and immediately took the lead. Coming out of turn four on lap ten the #114 of Perigo lost power handing the lead over to Nick Cramer.  On the restart Cramer sped away to his first win in six years. Darren Tarabori, Denny Nakutis, Bruce Dreistadt, Bryson Sanders, Larry Atha, Nick Wilson and Dennis Perigo completed the field. Perigo was the lone heat winner.

                Not many have been able to beat Nolan Dalton in the High Gear Speed Shop FASTRAK Late Models but you can add Ken Herman to that list.  Herman out raced Dalton into turn one at the start. Dalton got under Herman on lap three and was going for the top spot when the caution flew.  Herman took advantage of the break driving a flawless race to win his first-ever FASTRAK feature. Dalton had to settle for second over Mike Lewis, Troy Shields, Bobby Cossell, George Kowatic, Darin Henderson, Jeremy Shaffer, Michael Lake and Rich Logan.  Herman and Cossell won the heats.

                The Ft. Necessity Garage Chargers put on the best show of the night for the fans. Cody Colflesh, CJ Nicola and Kenny Burkholder were in a gun fight.  Colflesh kept them behind his thunderbird for 10 laps.  Nicola edged out front as they crossed the line on lap eleven. Nicola led the final lap to earn his first of the season. Colflesh was second over Kenny Burkholder, Justin Howell, Kyle Burkholder, Brad Jenkins, Bradley Nesline, Ben Dennis, Allen Fortney and Corey Faris. The heats were won by Colflesh and Nicola.

                Billy Holbert was looking to improve on his second place finish from earlier in the Hoosier Tire Mid-Atlantic Super Late Model feature.  Holbert led all 25-laps with just a few challenges before earning his third feature win. Scott Rhodes was second over Tim Senic, Matt Cosner, Cody Hardesty, LC Powers, Jared Hawkins, Danny Mitchell, Matt Sponaugle and Bob Gordon.  The three heats were won by Cosner, Senic and Greg Gellner.

                Connellsville’s Paul Koffler III won out in a three car battle for his first win on dirt in the Newt’s York Bar Roadrunners. Six-time winner Steve Settle was second over Paul Koffler, Jr., Donald Wilson, Steve Long, Todd Detrick, Ed Detrick, Clark Ligenfield, Jarred Barclay, Mark Seiler and Cindy Rhodes.  Settle and Koffler III were heat winners.
