TROUTMAN SCORES AGAIN

April 21st, 2018

   The racing weather in Bedford Friday night was winterlike cold, but Dave Troutman was hot for 25 laps.  Troutman, who  waited a decade between Bedford feature wins before scoring last week, jumped back in only seven days later to score again in Friday night action.   The recent pair of wins doubled Troutmans career total to four Late Model wins at the track, the other both coming in late 2007.  In other action, first time winners reigned as Kyle Ganoe scored his first career 305 win and Troy Johnson took the EMod event.  Josh Frankenberry took the Pure Stock event before Wayne Brenize ended his short retirement with a 4 Cylinder win.

 

     A bit of luck accompanied Troutman for the evening.  As only the second event of the season, the lineup was determined by pill draw and Troutman was not handicapped in the field as the recent featuire winner.  Then Troutman again benefitted as front row starters DJ Troutman and Nathan Lasalle both failed to answer the call for the start, moving him two spots forward.

HAUS BAGS BEDFORD LABOR DAY 55

September 2nd, 2017
    Andy Haus, with a dominating performance, took the longest Bedford  event of the season, the Labor Day 55, at Bedford Friday night.   It was Haus’ first win in the prestigious event and he became the first second generation winner, following two wins by his father in the 90s.  In other action on the final point race of the season,  Jonathan Taylor, Erik Weyandt and Darren Howsare also scored wins.
 
    Andy Haus made the best of a front row starting position in the Late Model 55.  He shot off to the lead at the start and basically never looked back.   Several early minor cautions slowed the field but Haus got away on every restart.  Rine found himself locked into a ferocious battle with Dylan Yoder for second which started on about lap 10 and lasted for the duration.
 
   Haus’ only worry happened on lap 24 as he was clipped while lapping Jeff Johnson.  The resulting action saw Johnson impact the inside guardrail heavily while Haus suffered only slight damage.  After that action, the event went all green.   Matt Cosner secured fourth spot with 20 to go and began to reel in the battle between Rine and Yoder, but he fell short at the finish.

WEYANDT SCORES BEDFORD FIRST LIMITED WIN

August 26th, 2017
    It was a night of first time winners Friday at Bedford Speedway.  Devin Weyandt led the parade by grabbing his first ever Limited feature win with a dominating performance.  Nick Bechtell and Kolby Crawley followed that up with career first Pure Stock and 4 Cylinder wins, while Dan Cornman rose to take the Semi Late victory, his furst in a long time.   In the best finish of the night, Evan Taylor used a dramatic last lap pass to take the EMod win.
 
    Devin Weyandt used a front row starting spot to grab the initial Limited lead and took off from the field.   Second place runner Brian Lowery brought out the first caution when he stopped on the track on lap three.  That caution also saw the departure of new second place runner Greg Cornell, who ignited a motor in turn two.  
 
    At that point Curtis Heath emerged in second, but he fell under the relentless pressure of Robby Black,  who had charged up from his seventh starting spot. Black got by Heath on lap seven and took off after the well ahead Weyandt.   After closing slightly over the next few green flag laps, Black really closed up when Weyandt encountered two battling lapped cars on lap 15.   After several heart stopping laps, Weyandt finally burst through the traffic still as the leader.  When Black failed to get by them for another lap,  Weyandt rushed on unhindered for the big win.

Cosner Takes Bedford Sunday Special

August 14th, 2017

BEDFORD, PA – August 13, 2017

After losing three consecutive Friday’s to Mother Nature, Bedford Speedway took advantage of a rare Sunday raindate for the annual Muss Weyant Tribute Show. Matt Cosner was the beneficiary, claiming his third Bedford Late Model win of the year. Bill Replogle won the special 30 lap Semi Late portion of the Weyant Tribute, with Barry Weyandt winning the 20 lap Pure Stock portion. Invader KC Burdette claimed his first ever Bedford modified win in his first career Bedford start and Chris Reckner won the Four Cylinder nightcap.

Nathan LaSalle and DJ Troutman led the Late Model field to the green for their 25 lap feature. Immediately on the start Troutman and Chad Hollenbeck made a move around LaSalle to go to the front. A quick yellow for debris on lap one then slowed the field. Following the restart Cosner passed Hollenbeck on lap five, setting his sights on the long gone Troutman. With no yellows to help him, Cosner tracked down Troutman setting the stage for a multi lap, side by side battle for the lead. With Cosner and Troutman using the entire track they raced hard through lapped traffic. Behind them Jeff Rine and Hollenbeck were racing just as hard for the third position. Cosner finally cleared Troutman on lap 18, leaving Troutman to deal with the fast closing Rine in lapped traffic. The second yellow fell on lap 23 when Nathan LaSalle got into the turn one wall very hard. Troutman and Rine were unable to challenge Cosner on the two lap shootout to the finish. At the end it was Cosner, Troutman, Rine, traveller Colten Burdette, in his first Bedford start, and Chuck Clise rounded the top five. Troutman and Cosner won the heats. Read more »
