The Pit Pass: Raceway 7 ends season with Patriot 360 Sprint Tour


CONNEAUT, Ohio — Ferree wins another one at Lernerville

SARVER — Alex Ferree’s name has been mentioned in this column many times this year. Friday night down at Lernerville Speedway he showed his fellow racers why he is the track champion in the Super Late Models. The 10th starting Ferree drove his No. 10 under Jared Milley on lap 20 to win his fifth feature of the year at the track.

Canadian Mat Williamson started third in the DIRTcar Big Block Modified feature and grabbed second place on lap one. On lap seven Williamson took over the lead from Dave Murdick and cruised on for the win over Brian Swartzlander, who had a strong second place finish. This is Williamson’s fifth feature win of the year and he took home the points championship trophy.  

Mike Lutz took off with the lead at the start of the 25-lap DIRTcar Sprints feature. By lap 10, Jumpin’ Jack Sodeman Jr. took over the top spot to go on for his fourth feature of the year at the ’Ville. Rod George finished second. At the end of the feature, Brandon Spithaler claimed his very first track championship of his career.   

In the DIRTcar Sportsman class, defending 2012 track champ Corey McPherson defended his title quite well this season, claiming his seventh feature of the season on Friday.

Lernerville Speedway has closed out its Fab Four Racing for the year. For the next three weeks, the track will have special Saturday night programs.

RUSH Series comes to the ’Burgh

CARNEGIE — The RUSH Late Model Touring Series held its manufacturers night at Pittsburgh Motor Speedway Saturday night. Forty cars showed up for the 24-car, $1,500-to-win, 25-lap feature. West Virginia driver Ryan Montgomery had been the driver to beat late in the racing season. Montgomery took off with the lead from the front row. On lap 16 Montgomery and Josh Holtgraver came together and as a result both drivers pitted to replace flat tires. That gave the lead to Tommy Schirnhofer Jr. of Pittsburgh. Montgomery came back out from the tire change and started charging to the front. By the end of the feature Schirnhofer crossed the finish line 2.585 seconds in front of Montgomery’s second place finish. This is Schirnhofer’s first RUSH Touring Series win.

The latest proposed expansion plan for the Crawford County Courthouse potentially would eliminate the former Tarr Mansion on Diamond Park to make room for a county administrative building. Should the 1860 mansion be demolished?

Leave it alone because it’s historic.
Try to incorporate it into the proposed expansion.
It’s too far gone to save, but it’s memory may be preserved with an artifacts and photo display within the proposed courthouse complex.
