Wolfe Wins Williams Grove Feature With Big Heat Race Move, Shultz Gets URC Main

Mechanicsburg – Lucas Wolfe led from start to finish in the 25-lap sprint car main at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night but he actually won the race on the opening lap of his heat race earlier in the night.

It was a run up the middle going into the first turn on the initial start of his heat that produced a three-wide move that netted Wolfe the lead in the qualifier and that set him on the pole for the feature thanks to a heads-up format.

And even Wolfe knew the move was key to his victory, his second of the season at the track.

“It was a very critical part of the night in the heat race,” he said.

410 sprints, 25 laps: 1. Lucas Wolfe, 2. Freddie Rahmer, 3. Danny Dietrich, 4. Brian Montieth, 5. Mark Smith, 6. TJ Stutts., 7. Anthony Macri, 8. Kyle Moody, 9. Cory Haas, 10. Rick Lafferty, 11.
