Bryan Bernheisel Bags Pair of Weekend Wins; Winchester Next

Jonestown, Pennsylvania (09/19/17) – Bryan Bernheisel enjoyed an exceptional weekend behind the wheel of his Dieffenbach’s Kettle Chips #119 Lazer Chassis Late Model.

The Pennsylvania racer visited Victory Lane on two occasions in the Steel Block Late Model division.

“It was an awesome weekend for our team,” Bernheisel said. “Really the only snag was getting caught up in a little melee to start the heat race at Path Valley Speedway, but even then we were able to bounce back quickly. Our car was flawless from the time that we unloaded. It just goes to show how hard this team works. I want to thank them and all of my great sponsors for their support.”

Friday night found Bryan Bernheisel in action at Path Valley Speedway (Spring Run, Pennsylvania), competing in a field of 13 Steel Block Late Models. After being collected in a wreck on the opening lap of his heat race, Bernheisel rallied from the tail of the field to place third.

Earning the second-starting position for the feature after the redraw, Bryan took over the lead on the second lap and held off the field for the remaining 18 circuits to capture sixth win of the season. Robbie Emory, Ryan Walls, Bob Dunn, and Brad McGinnis completed the Top-5 finishers.

The following night brought Bernheisel to Lincoln Speedway (Abbottstown, Pennsylvania), where he started the night with a heat race victory from the fifth-starting position. Receiving the pole position for the feature, Bryan jumped into the lead on the opening lap and led from flag-to-flag registering his seventh win of the season. Gene Knaub, Bobby Beard, Cam Zeigler, and Robbie Emory competed the Top-5 finishers in the 20-lap affair.

The upcoming weekend – September 22-23 – will take Bryan to Winchester Speedway (Winchester, Virginia) to compete in the Small Car Nationals in the Limited Late Model division. The event will pay $2,000-to-win.

Hagar Hungry for Another Hockett/McMillin Memorial Victory

Inside Line Promotions - MARION, Ark. (Sept. 19, 2017) - Derek Hagar is excited for the 7th annual Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial this weekend.

Hagar will tackle the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour event Thursday through Saturday at Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Mo., after taking a week off to prepare.

"Everything is freshened up and looked over," he said. "We took last weekend to regroup for the big week coming up. You definitely have to be on your game. There will be a lot of heavy hitters there. We have to have all of our ducks in a row so we have a shot at bringing home some wins."

Hagar has won the prestigious event. Additionally, he has earned a top-10 result during the finale each of the last five years.

"That place fits my driving style," he said. "My crew gives me a good car. Everything seems to work out for us. We've had good showings almost every time."

Hagar placed 10th during the finale in 2012 and 2013 before he was victorious in 2014. He followed that up with a runner-up result in 2015 - when he swept the two nights of non-wing sprint car competition as well - before charging from 18th to fifth last year.

"We know we can do it," he said. "We've raced with these guys and won. We need luck and the draw to play in our favor to get a good starting spot for the feature."


34 races, 8 wins, 25 top fives, 27 top 10s, 28 top 15s, 30 top 20s
