A cold, cloudy day in Shoemakersville was the scene for the latest
edition of Wingless Wednesday’s, promoted by the staff at the
Shellhammers Speedway. The same weekly Wednesday divisions assembled on
the grounds of the small bull ring, which included the Wingless 270’s,
125 Micro Sprints, the Senior and Junior Slingshots, and the Xcel
Sportsman 600 Modifieds.
The initial green flag saw Louden Reimert lead the 270 field around the speedway with top competitors Brandon Edgar and Richie Hartman hot on the heels of the young shoe. After running a good portion of the feature with the top 5 on the tail tank of the number 58 Micro, Louden began to pull away. A caution would bring things to a halt with a tangle between Kyler Heiney, the only 125 to show up, and Morgan Rochelle. Upon restarting the race, Reimert would never look back despite the challenges of Hartman and Edgar, and go on to collect his third win in a row at Shellhammers.
In the Junior Slingshot division Nicholas Flammer would collect the
victory in his heat race over Tyler Ulsh. The feature would see Flammer
jump take an early lead and hold off Tyler Ulsh. Ulsh had a bit of a slow
start but began to reel in Flammer and turned the fastest lap of the
race on lap 18. Ultimately Nicholas Flammer would collect another
victory at the speedway.
The Xcel Sportsman Modified heat and feature would see Jason
Dunkelberger take the victory over rookie driver Lance Garrison.
Dunkelberger would slow his pace down in the heat race with a mechanical
issue. After working to diagnose the problem, Jason returned for the
feature event and would lead every lap to collect yet another victory as
part of the Wingless Wednesday program.
The Senior Slingshots saw a decent field assemble for the Wednesday
night race with 7 cars entering the pit area ready for battle. Dylan
Hoch and Seth Spayd would share the front row for the feature event.
Spayd, who has shown great improvement thus far, would set the pace early
in the first couple of laps. Eventually Spayd would travel too high and
allow Hoch to get by and move on into the lead. Hoch would then
lead the rest of the remaining laps with Spayd close by and collect the
victory after picking up the ride in one of Steve Svanda’s fleet of
It was another action packed Wednesday at the bullring known as
Shellhammers Speedway, and we wish congratulations to all the feature
winners in the program. Wednesday May 4th is the last Wingless Wednesday
that Shellhammers will host until Action Track USA takes their mid –
summer break for the Kutztown Folk Festival. Come out and enjoy the
racing this coming Wednesday one last time this spring season!
