The Homak Penn Ohio Pro Stock Championship Series Friday night tracks lost to Mother Nature on May 19th. The first $1,000 or more to win bonus points race for the Series was held at Sharon Speedway on Saturday, May 20th.
As all other Series’ sanctioning tracks were forced to cancel due to the rain, Sharon Speedway officials worked diligently to get the event in and were successful. 29 Homak Penn Ohio Pro Stock drivers were on hand to battle for the $1,000 prize. The race seemed to be another Chris Schneider cruise to victory; but, Tim Bish was able to use his new S & S Chassis built by Schneider to take over the lead and park his #11B Ringgold Plumbing & Heating sponsored machine in victory lane claiming his first ever win at Sharon Speedway.
For the first appearance of the season, Homak Penn Ohio Pro Stocks visited sanctioning Tri City Raceway on Sunday, May 21st. Young gun, Tyler Wyant, just weeks before he will accept his high school diploma, captured the win over the veteran, “Seneca Slider” Bobby Whitling.
5 out of 9 Homak Penn Ohio Series sanctioning tracks were in action last weekend. Drivers were able to kick off the weekend at Lernerville for the Bob Lambert Memorial paying $2,000 to win or for a regular race at Thunder Mountain. Lernerville was a bonus points race for Homak Penn Ohio Series’ members, while Thunder Mountain was regular points. Dominating Lernerville driver and 2023 Penn Ohio Series’ member, Tyler Dietz was able to pull off the win over the 28-car field in the Bob Lambert Memorial. Fuzzy Fields found victory lane over Brandon Connor at Thunder Mountain.
On Saturday, May 27th, drivers were able to go to Marion Center to battle for $1,000 and Series’ members had another chance to earn bonus points. Claiming the win over the 14-car field was Brian Daugherty over Series’ Member Brett Hutira. One other sanctioning track had racing action on Saturday; and, Series’ member, Jordan Perkins claimed his 2nd win in his 2nd appearance of the season at Pittsburgh Pennsylvania Motor Speedway.
Rounding out the Memorial Day Weekend was a last-minute purse increase event at Tri City Raceway. 16 Homak Penn Ohio Pro Stock drivers competed for $1,000 in a 15 lap feature. From the outside pole position, Bobby Whitling was able to use a restart to his advantage over Jackson Humanic to park his Slider Race Car in victory lane for the increased pay day. Due to the event not being a pre scheduled $1,000 or more to win event, the 15 bonus points were not awarded to Series’ members.
