For Immediate Release

October 8, 2017 (Sandy Lake, PA) The two-day show at Pittsburgh Pennsylvania’s Motor Speedway was a great way for the Homak Penn Ohio Pro Stock Championship Series to end the season.  With 24 cars in competition, the drivers did not disappoint the fans with great racing action between record breaking fast laps, to breaking those records in heat races, to a caution free 20 lap A Main.  At the checkers, it was former three-time Series’ Point Champion, Chris Schneider in victory lane driving the Jack Kiehl owned #64 SS Chassis machine.


The two-day event started Friday with time trials.  The “Red Hot” Andrew Gordon #25G led the way with a record breaking time of 20.158.  Rusty Moore #17M, a contender for this year’s point championship, went into the event third in points and had an impressive qualifying time of 20.289 making him 2nd fastest.  Schneider was 3rd with a 20.372.  Point leader going into the event, Rusty Martz #16M, had a fast time of 20.474 making him 4th fastest.  Rounding out the top five was Bob Schwartzmiller #28S with a 20.546.


Heat race line ups were based on qualifying.  Taking the win in the first heat was fastest qualifier, Gordon over Martz and Bobby Whitling #7W, respectively.  Gordon turned the same lap time in the heat as he did in the qualifying laps.  Second heat went to Moore over Dave McManus #114 and Daryl Charlier #14.   Third heat found Schneider in 1st place with the record breaking time of 20.072.  Jeff Broniszewski #08 was 2nd and Cam Kraisinger #47K in 3rd.  Heat races ended Friday night’s festivities.  The top two drivers from each heat would participate in a redraw for starting position in Saturday’s six-lap dash.


Prior to the redraw, two cars scratched from Saturday’s event.  Gordon and Kraisinger experienced motor issues after Friday’s event, eliminating them from the competition.  The five car dash had Schneider on the pole with McManus outside pole.  The six laps had Schneider winning the dash and the pole for the 20 lap A Main, followed my McManus, Moore, Martz, and Broniszewski.


Schneider led the pack of 22 cars to the green for the 20 lap CruiseAmerica PENNational for the Homak Penn Ohio Pro Stock Series.  Schneider took the lead at the start with three wide racing at the flagman between McManus, Martz, and Moore.  McManus would come out of turn two in 2nd while sixth-starter, Whitling would make three-wide racing on the back stretch with fellow point contenders, Moore and Martz.  Whitling would perceiver and take the 3rd spot on lap 1.  Moore passed Martz for 4th on lap 2, as seventh-starter Charlier took 5th on lap 3. 


Charlier would drop out of the race and retire to the pits on lap 4.  Todd Weldon #45 advanced to 5th  at this point, after starting 12th.  Schneider distanced himself from the pack and started lapping the field at halfway, as Weldon took 4th from Moore.  Continuing to march forward, Weldon would pass Whitling for 3rd on lap 13 and 2nd from McManus on lap 17.  With no cautions, Schneider was able to gain a 6.409 second lead over Weldon and brought home the $1,500 Homak Penn Ohio Series’ win.  Whitling made a late pass to take 3rd from McManus, winning the 2017 Homak Penn Ohio Pro Stock Touring Series Point Championship in the process.  McManus held on to 4th, with Moore in 5th.  10th starting Davy Lee #96L, 11th starting Paul Davis #3, 19th starting Danny Rich #67X, 15th starting Rod Laskey #1R, and Martz completed the top ten.

I was wondering why Gordon didn't race last night as he was really fast on Friday.  Thanks for the update.

They have very modified stock type frames in the front ,Rear suspension very modified. Open Steel motors. That makes that a very competitive STOCK car class.

100% false. In fact the rules coming out later this year will seek to provide one set of rules including Lernerville even though they're Crate.

you need to specify stock type..no bump stop springs..or we will all be throwing away all our stuff again.

and level decks front to back..or we are all going to end up with XR1 wind tunnel creations.

SssHHH 67 ! some people think these cars are " NOTHING" like latemodels!


The weight rule is the key rule ! little Motors can weigh less ! big $15000 motors  weigh more ! they do it in horse racing and trackor pulls etc. Let people innovate or copy latemodel bodies and let the hard work shine . Ya no penski shocks .. steel motors with steel heads is good

Look at McPherson in his Crate car ! He beat the big motors twice ! he ran good at Pittsburgh too with a Good Handling car !

don't need allot of changes if you only have a couple rules.

 Congrats to the series for Another great season and all the work shawn and company put into it!
