There were 19 Priority Equipment Rental Hobby Stocks signed in on Saturday evening.

When the green flag dropped in their 20-lap feature, Rich (221K) would keep the early lead, but a first-lap caution would come when Jonathan Koteles (2K) stopped in turn two with an unknown car issue. Rich (221K) would lead the field on the restart with T. Magill (5) to his inside in second, F. Magill (05) in third, Benard (15) in fourth, and C. Koteles (1K) in fifth.

Koteles (1K) would take over second on lap eight with Rich (221K) in third, Shelpman (17S) still in fourth, and Benard (15) cracking the top five. The top five would remain the same through lap 12 when another caution would slow the pace for a car that spun out coming out of turn four. T. Magill (05) would choose the outside on the restart with eight laps remaining in the event and he would keep his lead when the field returned to green. Shelpman (17S) would take over second place by lap 14 with Rich (221K) in third, Benard (15) in fourth, and C. Koteles (1k) now holding down the fifth spot.

17 Rohrich RUSH Late Models were signed in on Saturday night at Dirt’s Monster Half-Mile. The Late Models were broken into two heat races with the top four from each heat making it into the redraw to determine the top eight starting spots for their 20-lap feature. Dan Lepro (2L), from Midway, would start on the pole with Daryl Charlier (114) to his outside in second place. Bill Kessler (09), from Freedom, would start in third, while Cole Petrelle (84), from Follansbee, West Virginia started in fourth. Zach Gunn (17G), from McDonald, and Mike Reft (9R), from Pittsburgh, would make up the third starting row. Nico Dabecco (42), from Pittsburgh, and Ben Policz (14B) would complete the top four starting rows for the Rohrich RUSH Late Model Dirt Series 20-Lap Feature. When the green flag waved, Charlier (114) would pull away with the early lead. The event’s first caution would slow the pace towards the end of lap one when Chris Lander (18) Tom Klein (77) got together coming out of turn four which collected DJ Nakutis (31N) as well. Charlier (114) would choose the outside on the restart and he would keep the lead when green replaced yellow. Lap three had Charlier (114) leading the field with Petrelle (84) in second, Reft (9R) in third, Lepro (2L) in fourth, and Policz (14B) holding down the top five. Another caution would come on lap five when Chris Lander (18) would stop with an unknown car issue on the low side of the back-chute. Charlier (114) would again choose the outside on the restart and he would retain the lead with Petrelle (84) still in second, Policz (14B) now in third, Reft (9R) now in fourth, and Dabecco (42) now in fifth. Another caution would slow the pace on lap 10 for the 42 of Dabecco who stopped with an unknown car issue between turns three and four.

The event’s final caution would come on lap 15 when Tim Shaffer (45) would spin out coming out of turn four. Charlier (114) and Petrelle (84) would lead the restart with five laps remaining. Charlier (114) would keep his lead, as he led all laps of the event, en route to another Rohrich RUSH Late Model PPMS win.

The ADMAR Penn Ohio Pro Stocks had an eight-car field with two drivers doing double-duty. Daryl Charlier (114) also ran his Rohrich RUSH Late Model and Todd Weldon (45) would also drive a Crawford Auto Repair Four-Cylinder, and he drove for Lucas Weaver (11W). The eight Pro Stocks had one heat race with the top four making the redraw for the top four starting spots in their 15-Lap Feature. Charlier (114) would be the pole-sitter for the Pro Stocks looking to make it two in a row on the night. Brian Huchko (60H) would start to his inside in second place. Weldon (45) would start in third, while Nick Kocuba (10) would start in fourth. Chris Schneider (18) and Zach Stehle (00) would make up the third row.

Lap four had Charlier (114) still leading, Huchko in second, Weldon (45) in third, Schneider (18) in fourth, and Kocuba (10) in fifth. The event’s first yellow would come on lap four when the race’s leader, Charlier (114) shredded a right rear tire forcing him to the pits. Huchko (60H) would now be the race leader and he would choose the outside on the restart with Weldon (45) to his inside in second. Huchko (60H) would retain his lead when green replaced yellow. Charlier (114) would have his tire changed and was forced to tag the field one lap down. Huchko (60H) would continue to lead through lap 12 when another caution would slow the pace for debris on the track. The caution would put Charlier (114) back on the lead lap restarting in fourth place. Huchko (60H) would again take the outside on the restart with Kocuba (10) in second, and Stehle (00) in third. When the green flag waved for the final time in the event, Huchko (60H) would keep his lead. Huchko (60H) would lead the final three laps of the event, picking up his third ADMAR Penn Ohio Pro Stock PPMS win of the season. He was followed to the line by Charlier (114) in a close-second, Kocuba (10) in third, Stehle (00) in fourth, Schneider (18) in fifth, Weldon (45) in sixth, and T. Charlier (21) in seventh. The heat race winner was D. Charlier (114). 

In the Crawford Auto Repair Four-Cylinder 10-Lap Feature, Weldon (11W) would start on the pole. Starting to his inside was Matt Knight (3K). Hemi Kineston (05) and Bill Tennant (2) would make up the second row, while Eric Reynolds (53) and Craig Rudolph (5R) would complete the six-car field, as April Tennant (2B) and Justin Pellegrini (29P) both did not start the feature. When the green flag waved, the field would battle for the lead heading into turns one and two with the caution coming before a lap was completed, as Knight (3K) spun in turn two which collected Rudolph (5R) and Reynolds (53). A complete restart would ensue and Tennant (2) would take the lead on the start with Weldon (45) in second, Reynolds (53) in third, and Knight (3K) in fourth. The top three would remain the same on lap four as Knight (3K) would retire to the pits with damage from the earlier accident. Tennant (2) had a full straightaway lead by lap seven. Lap eight had the event’s final caution when Weldon (45) would limp off of the track and stop at the turn four pit entrance. Only two cars would remain in the event, Tennant (2) and Reynolds (53). When green replaced yellow, Tennant (2) would keep the lead. Tennant (2) would lead the final two laps of the event to pick up another Crawford Auto Repair Four-Cyinder win. He was followed to the line by Reynolds (53) in second, Weldon (11W) in third, Knight (3K) in fourth, Kineston (05) in fifth, and Rudolph (5R) in sixth. The Heat race winner was B. Tennant (2). 

The All Ways Safe Young Guns have been a growing division all season. On Saturday evening, eight Young Gun cars would be signed in which gave them a heat race. The top four from the heat race would redraw for the top four starting spots in their 10-Lap Feature. Logan Koteles (5K) would redraw number one and start on the pole. Starting to his inside in second place was Cameron Lambert (223). Kiersten Chernik (5X) and Travis Clark (05) would make up the second row. Sadie Snatchko (56) would start in fifth, Gavin Kokolis (91) would start in sixth, Emmerson Laboon (14) would start in seventh, and Camerson Hollister (44) would complete the eight-car field. When the green flag dropped in their 10-Lap Feature, Koteles (5K) would pull away with the early lead. Lap two had Koteles (5K) still leading, Clark (05) in second, Chernik (5X) in third, Laboon (14) in fourth, and Lambert (223) in fifth. Koteles (5K) would enter lapped traffic on lap four and the top five would remain the same through lap seven. The event’s only caution would come on lap seven when Snatchko (56) spun out coming out of turn four after Clark (05) made contact with her. Track officials sent Clark (05) to the pits for making contact with her since it’s a no-contact division. Koteles (5K) would lead the restart with Chernik (5X) to his inside. When the green flag waved for the final time in the event, Chernik (5K) would steal the lead from Koteles (5K). Chernik (5X) would lead the final two laps of the race en route to her first career All Ways Safe Young Guns win. She was followed to the line by Koteles (5K) in second, Laboon (14) in third, Lambert (223) in fourth, Snatchko (56) in fifth, Kokolis (91) in sixth, Clark (05) in seventh, and Hollister (44) in eighth.
