The United Racing Club 360 winged sprints came to Bedford Speedway Friday night for the second time this season with Jason Shultz leading from green to checkered in the 25-lap feature.

The Carlisle driver, currently sixth in the point standings, started on the front row and never looked back pulling away from Jordan Thomas, Josh Weller, Justin Borger and Derek Locke, who were second through fifth, respectively. 

Points leader Chad Layton of Harrisburg did not finish.

In the limited late race, George Dixon was the winner, his second straight victory, with Clinton Hersh finishing second. 

Taylor Farlling, Tyler Ritchey and Travis Wilson rounded out the top five.

Bob Jay was the semi-late winner, Kyle Deneen claimed the pure stock feature win and Ryan Peer scored the four-cylinder victory.

This Friday’s races are on Milt Miller Tribute Night. Miller, a super modified, sprint car and late model driver from Bedford died in 2012.

The action includes late models, modifieds, semi lates, sportsman modifieds and the Penn Mar Vintage Club.


Weather played havoc with the racing at the Laurel Highlands oval on Saturday.

The track was able to complete heat races for all five divisions, but with two earlier weather delays and hours of effort by the track crew, a third rain shower prevented feature racing at Jennerstown.

Races will be made up one at a time during upcoming programs.

Heat winners included Joe Maruca and Garry Wiltrout in the late models and R.J. Dallape and Pete Rech in the modifieds. In the street stocks, Zac Todaro and Josh Coughenour were the heat winners while Scott Mitchell and Dan Jackson were the chargers heat winners. Brent Bickerstaff and Paul Koffler won the four-cylinder heats. 

The speedway will run a regular five-division program this Saturday.

Jennerstown also announced an update on its Facebook page regarding the improving health condition of modified driver Gary Scott.

Scott of Irwin was injured in a violent crash June 16 and has shown great improvement and has been relocated to a rehabilitation center closer to his home. 

According to the information, Scott still has a long road to a full recovery ahead of him, but he is in great spirits and is thankful for the support of all the fans. His goal is to wave the green flag at the Aug. 10 race.
