On lap number 12, Timmy Bittner moved into fourth place and took the third postion on lap number 18. Kissinger weaved his way through lapped traffic, with Beamer hoping for Kissinger to make a mistake. At one point Beamer was within striking distance, but Kissinger made a bold move and split between two lapped cars going down the back stretch.  A caution slowed the field on lap 22, when Frank Rusnock spun in turn two.   Kissinger brought the field back up to speed on the restart.  Beamer went to the pits, moving Bittner up to second with Prettyleaf in third, seventh place starter Garrett Bard restarted in fourth and Tylor Cochran moved into the top five. At the finish, Kissinger held off Bittner, Prettyleaf, Bard and Cochran.  Sixth though tenth were Dale Schweikart, Matt Tebbs, Jeffrey Weaver, Neil Petock, and Josh Fox.  Heat races were won by Bard, Smith, and Kissinger.

At the halfway point of the event, the top three remained unchanged as Keegan McGrew and Bryan Wagaman completed the top five.  On lap number 12, the top three cars began to encounter lapped traffic.   In the closing laps, Transeau and Stough tried everything they had to get around McClelland but couldn’t make a pass before the checkered flag.  “I know they were both there,” said McClelland in victory lane. “It was a hard-fought battle, but it was exciting.  The track was great.” The top five included McClelland, Transeau, Stough, Choya Young and Logan Carbaugh. Sixth through tenth were Tyler Kaylor, Justin Wagaman, Rick Hartwig, Cory Phillips, and Chad Ernest.  Heat races were won by McClelland, Stough and Transeau.

Hunter Zimmerman and Mac Wert lead the field of 270 Micro Sprints to the green flag.  Zimmerman quickly took command of the field with Cory Stabley, Timmy Bittner, Jeffrey Weaver and Bobby Sanso in the top five.  Weaver moved into second on lap number six, but Zimmerman had established a half of a straight-away lead over the rest of the field.  Weaver was gaining on Zimmerman, who appeared to be on way to securing his first career win at the speedway.  However, misfortune stuck on lap number nine, when Zimmerman’s car stopped on the front stretch, giving the lead to Weaver.  Weaver restarted the race with Stabley, Bittner, Sanso and Brayden Spencer in the top five.   Weaver raced to the finish to secure the win.  Bobby Sanso was second, Spencer third, Wert was fourth, and Stabley completed the top five.  Sixth through tenth were Bittner, Skeetz Hockenbrock, Logan Hammaker, Jim Barkey and Evan Dickey.  Heat races were won by Weaver and Spencer. 

In 600 Micro Sprint competition, Cody Hauck led up to the halfway mark.  Johnny Smith, who started fourth made a pass for the lead with Hauck, Sierra Hauck, Trevor Teats and Mikey Smith running in the top five.  Mikey Smith brought out the events only yellow on lap number 10 when his car stopped on the front stretch.  Smith held off the challenge of Hauck to claim the victory.  Teats finished third, with Weaver and S. Hauck completing the top five.  Smith also won the heat race.

AJ Hoffman won the Pro Stocks, Jeffrey Weaver of Lock Haven won the 270 Micro Sprints, Timmy Bittern of Beech Creek won the 600 Micro Sprints and Hunter Flook of Avis the Four Cylinder feature. 

Jarrett Cavalet and Tylor Cochran led the full field of sprint cars to the green flap for the 25 lap main event.  Cochran led the first lap, with fourth place starter Johnny Smith running second, followed by Josh Beamer, Cavalet and Jeffrey Weaver.   Cochran and Smith were in a fierce battle for the lead until lap number five, when mechanical issues developed for Cochran and his car stopped on the front stretch.   Smith inherited the lead with Beamer, Cavalet, Weaver and Ken Duke Jr. restarting in the top five.   The only other caution of the event occurred on lap number 10, when Kyle Knoop’s car spun.   Smith once again brought the field back up to speed with Beamer and Cavalet trying to chase him down.  

By lap number 17, Smith began to encounter lapped traffic.  At times Beamer was able to get within half of a car length of Smith but was unable to execute a pass for the lead. Ryan Kissinger moved into the top five on lap number 23.   When the checkered flag waved it was Smith over Beamer, Jeffrey Weaver, Ryan Kissinger and Jarrett Cavalet.   Sixth through tenth were Ken Duke Jr, Dakota Schweikart, Timmy Bittner, Garret Bard and Scott Lutz.  Heat races were won by Jeffrey Weaver, Dakota Schweikart, Josh Beamer and Tylor Cochran.  The consolation was won by Logan Jones.

AJ Hoffman started on the pole of the Pro Stock feature event alongside Kris Orwig.  Orwig caused the caution on lap number two allowing Johnny Bouse to move into the runner up position followed by Chris Small, Robert Tressler and AJ Stroup.  Stroup and Tressler battled for fourth and fifth position, with Stroup taking the fourth position on lap number seven.   Hoffman continued to hold off Bouse until lap number 12, when Bouse took his car back into the pit area.   The restart had Hoffman leading Chris Small, Stroup, Robert Tressler, Brandon Moser.   The final laps the top five remained unchanged.  Sixth through tenth were Marc Bittler, Rich Fye, Orwig, Todd Geyer and Austin Hulsizer.  Heat races were won by Bouse and Stroup.

By lap number 12, Teats began to charge his way back to the front.  In the closing laps, Bittner had Swartz and Teats threatening to make a move.  Bittner found grip coming out of turn two, which gave him an advantage going down the back stretch.  In the end it was Bittner over Swartz, Teats, Weaver and Hauck.  Sierra Hauck was sixth followed by Holden, Mikey Smith, and Johnny Smith.  Heats were won by Mikey Smith and Bittner.  

In Four -Cylinder competition, Anthony Potter started on the outside of the front row and powered into the lead.      Sixth place starter Chris Small moved into the second spot by lap number four.  At the halfway mark, Potter led Small, Tim Muthler, Hunter Flook and Shawn Stahl.  A caution on lap nine bunched the field on Potter’s rear bumper.  Flook got a run on Potter and took the lead on lap number ten.  Shawn Stahl added his name into the mix and edged out Flook to lead lap number eleven.   Flook and Stahl raced hard into turns one and two, with Flook reclaiming the lead going down the back stretch.  Flook was the winner over Stahl, Sam Creveling, Chris Small and Terry Karichner.  Sixth through tenth were Tim Muthler, Anthony Potter, Nick Snook, Joey Snook and Matt Weaver.  Heat races were won by Potter, Keith Haagen and Scott Englert.

The furious pace of the leaders was slowed on lap number six with a caution for Garret Bard who had just advanced into the top five.

The restart had Kissinger leading Kepner, Ryan Lynn, Jarrett Cavalet and Josh Beamer. Again, Kissinger and Kepner were in a fierce battle for the lead. On lap number eight, Kepner tried to slide past Kissinger but instead drifted high exiting turn two allowing Lynn and Cavalet to get by him.

The caution came out for a two-car accident on lap number 15 involving Austin Greenland and Reed Thompson. The restart found Kissinger leading, Lynn, Cavalet, Beamer and Kepner. Kissinger was fast using the high side around the speedway. Lynn kept pace with the leader as they entered into lapped traffic.
With two laps remaining, the red flag came out when Mike Allman’s car flipped on the back stretch. Allman was okay.

On several occasions Moser would try to dive under Tressler, but Tressler kept his momentum by utilizing the outside groove. Tommy Dawson moved into the third position, while Geyer and Chris Long battled for fourth and fifth. The leaders began to encounter lapped traffic with fourth laps remaining. In the closing laps, Moser continued to pressure Tressler, but couldn’t find enough speed to make the pass. The event went non-stop with Tressler securing the win over Moser, Dawson, Long, and Geyer. Sixth through tenth were Noah Jensen, AJ Hoffman, Gary Mellott, Brett Gordner, and Noah Kissinger. Heat races were won by Moser and Tressler

In the 270 Micro Sprint feature, several cars tangled on the opening lap with one car rolling over, to bring out the red flap.

Once out in front, Spencer was able to open up a sizable lead over Weaver as the race went non-stop. Ninth place starter Cody Seigel advanced into third followed by Shawn Musser and Timmy Bittner. By lap number nine, Spencer began to encounter lapped traffic which allowed Weaver to close in slightly.

Clinton County Speedway to Honor Winningest Sprint Car Driver

Mill Hall, PA – Clinton County Speedway successfully brought 410 Sprint Car racing back to the 3/8th mile oval for the first time in over a decade in 2021. This year, with much anticipation from fans and drivers, the 410s will return on Saturday, August 13th, presented by NAPA/Toner Auto Parts.
This year’s 410 race will be named in honor of the speedway’s all-time 410 sprint car feature winner, Phil Walter of McClure, PA. Walter was the 1993 division champion and has 29 victories at the speedway. Walter’s first career win at Clinton County came on May 12, 1989. He earned four wins during the Speedway’s inaugural season in 1989.


“Walter was one of the original stars of the Clinton County Speedway,” says speedway promoter Jason McCahan. “We are thrilled to honor Phil Walter and his accomplishments, especially for what he has done for sprint car racing at Clinton County Speedway. Because we are honoring Phil Walter and his familiar #63, we are working hard to make this a $6,300 to win race.”


Walter had 93 career starts over eleven seasons and had a 31% winning average. He was a three-time winner of the Ed Shafer Memorial and a two-time winner of the Syracuse Qualifier.


“Clinton County Speedway has always had a special place in my heart,” said Walter. “I have many great memories of the time that I spent racing there. We were very fortunate to win some races and enjoy some success that made it possible for us to continue racing.”


During Walter’s career at Clinton County, he drove for various cars owners. He raced his own #63 for the first season at the speedway. During his career, he piloted cars for Dan Dietrich, Gene Jenkins, Carl Fry, Joe Watts, Lenny Krautheim, Selinsgrove Ford, Frank Anfuso, Gary Kratzer and Gary Ritter.


His most successful season at Clinton County Speedway was in 1993, while driving the #55 for Gene Jenkins. He won 10 of 15 races that season, claiming 6 wins in a row. He won the Syracuse Qualifier and the Speedway’s Championship.


“The Clinton County Speedway is a driver’s track,” adds Walter. “It is not about money or horsepower, but more about handling and driving. This creates good close and exciting racing for both the spectators and the competitors.”


“Last year, the 410-race paid $4,000 and $400 to start, with Ryan Smith claiming the victory in an exciting race,” added McCahan. “We want to make this event memorable for Phil and his family, our drivers and our fans. We are welcoming businesses looking for marketing opportunities with the Phil Walter Classic to reach out to us and should email the speedway at info@clintoncountyspeedway.com


In addition to the sprint cars, the IMCA Modifieds and 4-Cylinder Stock cars will be part of the program. For the latest information about upcoming events, visit the speedway’s website www.clintoncountyspeedway.com or follow the speedway on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

In addition to the five division show, kids will be part of the racing program.  Kids will have the opportunity to race their Power Wheels, one lap around the speedway.  Any Power Wheels type car is eligible.  Kids must wear a bike helmet.  The kids will be divided into two divisions based on age.  And a third division will be for any Power Wheels that have been modified.

“This is always a popular event at the speedway,” added McCahan.  “We appreciate the support of Century 21/1st Choice Realty and Bob Boob for sponsoring our kids activities again this year.”
