ABBOTTSTOWN — A childhood dream came true for 17-year-old Anthony Macri at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.
And the Dillsburg youngster’s first win couldn’t have been more exciting.
In a thriller that saw five lead changes between front row starters Macri and Glenndon Forsythe, Marci reclaimed the lead for the third time and final time on lap 15.
Forsythe settled for sixth, followed by Freddie and Brandon Rahmer, Scott Fisher, and Chad Trout, who started 19th.
Heats for the 22 “410” Sprints were won by Krimes and the Rahmers.
New Oxford’s Dwight Leppo led every a lap of a wild 20-lap “358” sprint car feature to score his second career Lincoln win. Though he was never passed for the lead, there was torrid racing in behind, with Brent Shearer and Trey Hiver finishing second and third. Doug Hammaker and Kevin Nouse rounded out the top five.
Sixth through tenth were Troy Wagaman, Jr., 14th-starting Ashley Cappetta, Cody Fletcher, Phil Walter, and Steve Wilbur.
Heats for the 32 “358” Sprints were won by Leppo, Nouse, Hammaker, and Adrian Shaffer, with Ryan Quackenbush winning the consolation.
Christine traded second place with Bobby Beard in the early stages of the race and crossed in the runner-up spot 1.10 seconds behind Jones. Travis Mease, Beard, and Derick Quade rounded out the top five.
Heats for the 19 “358” Late Models were won by Quade and Christine.
