ABBOTTSTOWN, PA - With his win on Saturday night, Jeremy Ott is now only one win away from tying Jason Rochelle at the top of the All Time Legends Win List at Lincoln. Ott’s win was his ninth at the track.
Ott shared the front row of the 20-lap feature with pole-sitter Aaron Updegraff. Ott led the field into turn 1 with Updegraff in second holding off a charge from Owen Dimm. Dimm looked to the outside of Updegraff and made the pass for second with Travis McClelland and Logan Carbaugh following right behind.
Dimm looked under Ott for the lead down the back stretch with Ott holding the lead at the line. Dimm, a rookie in the division, continued to battle the veteran, Ott, for the top spot.
McClelland reeled in Dimm and the two battled for second with McClelland taking the spot at the line on lap 3. Dimm stayed with McClelland and the two raced wheel to wheel at the line for second on lap 4. McClelland held the position by inches.
Logan Carbaugh was working on Dimm for third when the caution came out on lap 6 for debris.
Ott led the field for the restart with McClelland and Dimm continuing their fight for second. Carbaugh and Bob Stough joined making it a four-car battle. Carbaugh looked to the outside of Dimm and took third on lap 7. Stough followed sending Dimm back to fifth.
Stough was all over Carbaugh trying to take third. Stough tapped Carbaugh’s bumper and got out of shape, allowing Dimm to reclaim fourth.
Carbaugh caught McClelland and the two raced wheel to wheel at the line on lap 10 for second. McClelland held the spot. Carbaugh continued to get his nose under McClelland in the corners, but McClelland continued to hold the advantage at the line.
Stough was holding off Dimm as he challenged for fourth.
The top five were running nose to tail when the yellow flag waved on lap 17 for Preston Alleman who stopped in turns 1 and 2.
Ott led McClelland, Carbaugh, Stough and Dimm to the cone for the restart with three laps to go. Stephen Wurtzer, who had charged through the field from his twelfth starting spot, challenged Dimm for fifth on the restart. Wurtzer made the pass to get into the top five with one lap to go.
McClelland made one last try for the win, but Ott beat him to the checkered flag by .168 seconds. Carbaugh crossed the line third and Stough was fourth. Wurtzer completed the top five.
