York’s Lucas Montgomery raced to his seventh career Lincoln win the first appearance of the season for the Central PA Legends. Montgomery started fifth and was in the midst of a multi-car battle for the race lead the entire event.
He finally wrestled the lead from Scott Houdeshell on lap nine, two laps after leader Scott Smith spun exiting turn four.
Travis Perry came from seventh starting spot to challenge Montgomery on a last lap restart following a red flag for a flipping Rick Hartwig in a four-car crash on turns three and four, but wasn’t able to make the pass and settled for second. Third through fifth were Harlon Leppo, Hayden Pascoe, and Houdeshell.
Heats for the 39 Central PA Legends were won by Leppo, Perry, Jason Gastley, and Montgomery, with Alex Schmidel and Don Leiby winning the twin consolations.
