St. Johns, PA (9/24/2017)- Mid summer temperatures set the stage for Sunday’s “Slam the Stands” event at Evergreen Raceway. Plenty of action was on the card for the afternoon, including the Himmer Graphics Late Model make up feature that was rained out last weekend. Steve Shultz of Drums took that victory early in the afternoon. With a makeup feature also on the line for the Evan’s Roadhouse Four Cylinder division, Shane Troutman of Andreas took the race lead on lap two and never looked back en route to his first career victory. After many years of coming close, Francis Gross III of New Tripoli held off Shultz for his first career Late Model victory and Randy Schlenker of Whitehall all but sealed the Barbush Automotive Street Stock championship with a feature event win. TJ Kapish of Mountaintop took top honors in the Strictly Stock division, as did Mountaintop youngster Caden Ayre in the Wheels Bar and Grill Junior Four Cylinder class. Also from Mountaintop, Harry O’Neill bested the Four Cylinder field for the regular scheduled Four Cylinder event.

Gross started from the pole and led the Late Model field to the drop of the green flag in the regular 30-lap feature. He led the opening lap over Lorin Arthofer, Shultz, Danny Cascioli and Geno Steigerwalt.

Shultz climbed to second and then took the lead following a lap 11 restart. However, Gross fought back to regain the point on the following circuit.

Following several laps of hard racing, Gross held off the former champion to take his first career victory over Shultz, Steigerwalt, Arthofer and Cascioli.

Brian Halecki led the Street Stock field to the drop of the green flag in the 25-lap feature. However, Dan Pawlicki crossed the stripe first to lead lap one. Halecki fought back to regain the top spot until the caution flag waved three laps into the show.

Todd Ahner took his turn at t leading following the restart until lap 10 when he was overtaken by Rich Paciotti. In the mist of several yellows, Randy Schlenker climbed to second. Just after a lap 18 restart, Paciotti suffered a flat right front and Schlenker took command.

He led the rest of the way and crossed the stripe for the win over Eric Kocher, Scott Adams, Mike Pollack and Pawlicki. Pollack was later disqualified in post race tech, which moved Randy Ahner, Jr. to fifth.

Shawn Kistler started from the pole and led the opening circuit of the 20-lap Four Cylinder field over Ryan Berger, Harry O’Neill, Shane Troutman and TJ Kapish.

O’Neill quickly climbed into second and then took the race lead on the second circuit.

The even went green until lap 14 when three yellow flag periods slowed the competition and when it was all said and done, O’Neill cruised to take the checkers over Joe Barbush III, Jimmy Ayre, Kapish and Jeff Biegley. Kapish was later disqualified in post race tech, which Moved Brian Sones into fifth.

Mitch Sponenberg led the Wheels Bar and Grill Strictly Stocks to the drop of the green flag and was overtaken on the opening circuit by Kapish and O’Neill. Kapish went on to take the win in the caution free event.
