SARVER, PA (Pittsburgh Racing Now) – AJ Flick passed Russ Sansosti on lap 8 and never looked back to pick up the People’s Natural Gas 410 Sprint Car victory last night at Lernerville Speedway.

Zach Morrow led the field to the green but was passed by Sansosti, who led the first 7-laps.  Flick got by Sansosti and the battle was over for lead, but not for the podium.  Sansosti hung on for second followed by Carl Bowser, Jack Sodeman Jr. and Jimmy Morris.

In the Diehl Toyota Big Block Modified feature, Jeremiah Shingledecker picked up his second straight win at The Action Track.  Dave Murdick started on pole and looked strong throughout the race but Shingledecker got by Murdick on lap 22 en route to his third win of the season.  Murdick finished second followed by Garrett Krummert, Brian Swartzlander and John Mollick.

The Precise Racing Late Model feature saw Colton Flinner pick up his first victory of the season. Kelvin Kohan, who has shown speed all season, led the field to the green flag but Tommy Beck grabbed the early lead. Jared Miley took the lead on lap 6 but it was short lived as he spun on lap 7 to bring out the caution.  Flinner took the lead after that and put his car in Terry Bowser Victory Lane.  Miley recovered to finish second followed by points leader Ken Schaltenbrand, Mike Pegher Jr. and Tyler Dietz.

SARVER, PA (Pittsburgh Racing Now) – The All Star Circuit of Champions (ASCoC) is returning to Lernerville Speedway in 2022 for two nights of action including the Don Martin Memorial XXXI.

The All-Stars will make their first appearance at ‘The Action Track’ on Friday, April 29.  The appearance will mark the series return to Lernerville for the first time since 2019 as COVID-19 cancelled their 2020 appearance and rain washed out this year’s visit.

“We’re very excited to bring in the All-Stars and their thrilling brand of high-level Sprint Car racing” said Lernerville Speedway General Manager Mike Lysakowski said in a statement. “I have always been a fan of the All-Stars and for 2022, we had more freedom in choosing a date for this year’s Silver Cup. We believe we have chosen a date that is very conducive to bringing both national and regional Sprint Car aces to Lernerville.”
