Emerling doubles up at Lancaster Speedway

Patrick Emerling of Orchard Park swept the open-wheeled divisions at Lancaster National Speedway Saturday night, winning both the Race of Champions Modified Series “Queen City Clash 75” and the 35-lap Sunoco Sportsman feature. Emerling held off Ransomville’s Chuck Hossfeld in both races to earn the wins.

Hossfeld set quick time during RoC time trials with a lap time of 16.651 seconds, establishing a new track record at Lancaster.

Emerling earned his second career Modified win at Lancaster and his second straight on the RoC circuit. Hossfeld settled for second, followed by Jimmy Zacharias, Tyler Rypkema and Mike Leaty.

In the Sportsman feature, Emerling started last in the 24-car field after a post-heat race altercation with John Barber, and went on to win his second-straight Sportsman feature at Lancaster. Hossfeld was once again second, while Billy Burd recorded his third-straight top three finish with a third place run. Mike Fiebelkorn Jr. and Neal Dietz Jr. rounded out of the top five.

Dave Wilson was credited with the win in the Advance Auto Parts Street Stocks after unofficial winner TJ Cochrane was disqualified in post-race inspection. Dennis Londos finished second followed by Mark Hoch, Tommy Wentland and Keith Flanigan.

The NYPA TQ Midgets made their first visit to Lancaster’s ¼-mile inner oval, with Dave Wollaber picking up the win in the 20-lap feature. Wollaber passed Kyle Hutchinson for the lead on Lap 3 and never looked back. Hutchinson finished second, with Bobby Holmes, Andy Nye and Erik Musto rounding out the top five.

Kevin Bainbridge won his third Roaming Buffalo 4-Cylinder feature in a row after starting last because he was attending his daughter’s dance recital and missed the heat race. Bobby Hanel finished second, followed by Chris Pennell, Billy Anderson and Dan Dressel.

Lancaster National Speedway is off Memorial Day weekend, but will be back in action on Saturday, June 4, which is First Responders night at Lancaster – all police, fire and EMT personnel receive $5 admission with valid ID. The RoC Big 10 Super Stocks join Lancaster’s three weekly home track classes on the race card. Find out more at
