Chaney races to his third Central PA Legends win of the season


Mason Chaney raced to his third Central PA Legends victory of 2018 and first of the year at Trail-Way Speedway, Friday night.

Fourth starter, Travis McClelland, paced the field for several laps while Chaney inched closer turn after turn. McClelland and Chaney ran side-by-side on lap five, drag racing down the backstretch with Chaney claiming the sixth lap.

McClelland was able to pull within a few car lengths of Chaney for several laps until Scott Houdeshell raced into the picture. Chaney, McClelland and Houdeshell put on a show, racing for the top three spots, until McClelland suffered mechanical issues on lap 16, bringing out the caution. Houdeshell restarted behind Chaney but was unable to make a pass for the win, crossing in the runner-up spot by .148 seconds.

Third through fifth went to Scott Smith, Travis Perry and Greg Burd.

Heats for the 28 Central PA Legends were won by Perry, Houdeshell and Smith. Chris Transeau was the consolation race winner.
