Rhodes Streaks to Topless Win at Roaring Knob; Thomas Scores In FASTRAK Late Models

                MARKLEYSBURG, PA (October 22, 2011) The American Racer Tire Super Late Models and Krause Electric FASTRAK Late Models went topless Saturday night at Roaring Knob Motorsports Complex.  In the Super Late Models Scott Rhodes of Somerset streaked to his fourth win of the season while Kyle Thomas, from Pennsboro, WV, won the FASTRAK Late Models.  Todd Dennis picked up his ninth TC Race Car Parts Street Stock feature with Kyle Burkholder winning his second in the Ft. Necessity Garage Chargers.  Paul Koffler Sr. was the lone new winner in the 4-Cylinder Roadrunners.

                Newell’s Todd Dennis took the lead from Scott Spade on lap two of the 25-lap event and never looked back.  Dennis’ only challenge came early from EJ Rozak, who was making his first start of the year in a brand new car.  Rozak was running second until something broke in the front suspension ending his night.  Dennis cruised to an easy win over first-time visitor Jeremy Swank.  Bob Neratka, Scott Spade, Ryan Newman, Bob Nelson, John Redshaw, Ron Howard, Barry Faris and Rozak were the top ten.  Dennis and Spade claimed the two heat wins.

                Somerset’s Scott Rhodes was the only driver to use a sprint car wing in the $1200 to win, 30-lap “Run What Ya Brung” Topless feature for the American Racer Tire Super Late Models.  Rhodes was the class of the field.  The only time anyone got close to him was under yellow.  Rhodes lapped all but second place Brian Booze to score the feature win.  Following Booze was Len Dobrosielski, Tracie Simpson, Mike Lewis, Robbie Marhefka, Steve Gibney, Rick Strickler, Bobby Watt and Doug Glessner.  Heats were taken by Rhodes and Booze.

                In the 20-lap 4 Cylinder Roadrunners Paul Koffler, Sr. added his name to the win list leading green to checker for his first-ever Knob win.  Koffler had pressure from Robert Pluta in the first few laps of the feature.  Pluta gave way to Ray Edwards who took the lead on lap six.  Edwards lead was short lived as his motor went up in smoke on lap nine. Koffler inherited the lead back and kept Steve Settle in his rear view mirror for his first win.  Settle, Davey Lambert, Sarah Redmond and Doug Hostetler filled out the top five.  Sixth through tenth were Ed Detrick, Todd Detrick, Wes McDaniels, Donnie Wamsley and Andrew Pluta.  Koffler and McDaniels were the heat winners.

                The Krause Electric FASTRAK Late Models were also topless for $1000 to win in their 25-lap event. Rick Meglaye grabbed the lead from Kyle Thomas at the drop of the green.  Thomas challenged Meglaye before John Over took up the pursuit.  Meglaye drove a flawless race until lap 17.  Meglaye spun and was hit by a couple of cars and this handed the lead to Kyle Thomas.  On the restart Thomas took off and was a straighaway ahead when a caution flew on lap 17.  Another caution came out on lap 23, but Thomas was up to the task and drove home to first Roaring Knob win since August of 2009.  Nolan Dalton was second ahead of John Over, Ken Herman, Danny Thomas, Billy Stile III, Louie Krushansky, Maurice Thompson, Jr., Jeremy Zufall and Joe Moyer.  Heats were won by Stile, Derek Doll and Herman.

                The final feature of the evening was the 20-lap Ft. Necessity Garage Chargers. Kyle Burkholder survived challenges from Cody Colflesh and Shawn Smith in his green to checker run.  Behind Burkholder at the checker were Brad Jenkins, Bill Replogle, Ed Vogel, Justin Rodeheaver, James Nelson, Shawn Smith, Cody Colflesh, Corey Faris and Eric Miller.  Colflesh and Smith shared heat win.
