Abbottstown, Pa. (5/25/19): Jeremy Ott and Bill Diehl shared the front row of Saturday night’s feature. Ott got out to the lead with Diehl trying to make the outside work to take the lead. Before the first lap was complete the caution came out. Austin Bellemare, Cory Phillips, Rick Hartwig, Chandler Pagnotta and Tony Mrakovich got caught up in turns 3 and 4. Jorjie Sweger came to a stop on the front stretch.
The field lined up for a complete restart. This time Diehl made the outside work and got the lead on the start. Ott was close and all over Diehl for first.
Travis McClelland was up to fourth from his ninth starting spot on lap two. On the next lap McClelland got by Bill Diehl for third going into turn 1.
Diehl started to pull away from the field. Travis Perry was working on Blaine Leppo for fourth. Perry got his nose under Leppo on lap 5 but Leppo beat him back to the flag stand. Perry made the move for fourth on the next lap.
