Tyler Dietz scores emotional first career feature win in Pic-A-Part Sportsman

Baughman bests Peoples Natural Gas Sprint local drivers

King and Williamson return to Dlubak Powder Coatings Victory Lane


Sarver, PA (July 8, 2016) Just one week after coming up a few laps short of his first feature win in the Millerstown Pic-A-Part DIRTcar Sportsman/Stocks, Tyler Dietz sealed the deal Friday Night with his first career feature win.  Surrounded by dozens of crew members and fellow drivers, Dietz fought off a flood of emotions to thank everyone that helped make his victory possible.  Before Dietz stood victorious, Josh Baughman, Russ King and Mat Williamson all took the checkered flag and rolled their mounts into Dlubak Powder Coatings Victory Lane.


Josh Baughman, an ASCS 360 sprint touring driver from Odessa, TX ran Ohio All Star Speedweek and will be running the Lou Blaney Memorial at Sharon Speedway with the All Stars Saturday Night.  Baughman’s parents are from Western PA and he last attended a race at Lernerville Speedway at age eight.  Tonight, he was the class of the field and rolled relatively unchallenged, save a few laps of pressure from Jack Sodeman Jr., to victory in the Peoples Natural Gas DIRTcar Sprints.  Russ King had to fend off his close friend Mike Pegher Jr. for most of the race, before pulling away as Pegher broke with just a handful of laps remaining, to score his second win of the season in the Precise Racing Products DIRTcar Late Models.  Mat Williamson capitalized on a late race restart by jumping to the high side around turns one and two to pass all time division wins leader Brian Swartzlander in the Diehl Automotive DIRTcar Northeast Big Block Modifieds; Williamson’s Fab4 Fueled by Turner’s Premium Iced Teas leading fifth feature win of the season.
