Lancaster National Speedway hosted the Race of Champions Big 10 Super Stock Series in addition to its three weekly series on Saturday night, with former Lancaster Street Stock champ TJ Cochrane leading all 25 laps and picking up the win, his first in the Super Stock division. Joe Mancuso rallied from being involved in early race incident to finish second, followed by Timmy Catalano, Eric Hadley and Bobby Schosek.
Jake Lyon came one step closer to the Sunoco Sportsman track championship with his third win of the season on Saturday night. The victory extended his points lead over Tommy Catalano, who finished third.
Lyon worked his way to the front of the field from the 10th starting position. By Lap 8 he was running second and hooked up with Mark Pennell to pull away from the field. On Lap 13, Lyon dove to the inside of Pennell going into Turn 3 and took the lead by the time the pair got back to the start/finish line and never looked back.
Lyon goes into the regular season finale with a 44-point lead over Catalano. Pennell finished second between the two championship contenders. Shawn Nye and Neal Dietz Jr. rounded out the top five.
Keith Flanigan picked up his second win of the season in the Advance Auto Parts Street Stocks, leading all 25 laps from the outside pole position to score the win. Mark Hoch finished second with Tommy Wentland, Brian Hoffman and Dave Wilson completing the top five.
Wilson unofficially clinched the 2016 Street Stock track championship with his fifth-place run. Flanigan padded his slim lead in the race to finish second in the standings. He began the night with a one-point advantage over Jerome Hruby.
Bobby Woch scored his third win of the season in the Roaming Buffalo 4-Cylinders, passing teammate Dan Dressel for the lead on Lap 11 and never looked back. Kevin Bainbridge finished second, followed by Dressel, Chris Pennell and Jason Anasiewicz.
