The Pennsylvania hills region welcomes it's finest competitors! East of Burwick lies the wondrous Pocono Raceway, ready to roll for the Pocono 400. Bill Werkheiser wins what could be his final Extravaganza Series pole, hoping to bring home the pie in old-man style! If not he will eat his Costco pie in the same style.

Race Recap

Bill Werkheiser lost the lead on the first lap, relinquishing to Ryan Heuser as the #6 dropped to the back. Zach Michael took the helm three laps later, watching Dave Miller come out of the pits one lap down with clutch issues. Points leader Ken Pettit nabbed his first bonus points of the race on lap 7.

Miracle-man Cristian Torres shows what Toyota horsepower is all about! He leads only his 10th lap of the season before Craig Lee and the dominators of Extravaganza rummaged through. He, Alex Crapser and Rookie of the Year leader Molemar Diggs take turns at the helm before the first caution.

Tunnel-turn devastation occurred on lap 40. Rob Scarberry and Ben Geer made contact entering the corner, sending the Twinkie machine hard into the outside wall. Jimmie Stevens sent Geer into a half-flip, with Steven Spears, Tony Gunk, Chauncey Redmond Jr. and pole-sitter Bill Werkheiser all piling up into the accident. Only Spears would continue on, eventually blowing an engine on lap 95.

Molemar Diggs and Matthew Dominique battled defiantly for the top-spot after the ensuing restart. The #41 prevailed, eventually losing the lead to Matt Raboin, Ken Pettit and Logan Sheets. The entire Quantum Racing brigade raced inside the top-5, staying withing the lead group by the halfway point.

Trae Larkin blew an engine early in the go, dropping to 38th in the standings after two top-15's to begin the season. Up front, Craig Lee took the helm with John Tharp and Dan Johnston meandering through the field, finding themselves up front for the first time. Logan Sheets would steal the lead back to win the Halfway Bacon Bonus.

Reigning Champion Ryan Heuser and points leader Ken Pettit come out of the pits 1-2. Heuser is going for victory #83, hoping to pass "Rapid" Roscoe Riker for third on the all-time list. A Steven Spears engine failure would bring out the caution, bunching the field back towards the lap 100-mark.

Race dominator Logan Sheets slammed Spears during the green flag stops, losing four laps after fixing the damage. It's a devastating blow for the Quaker State team, ending their three top-12 finish streak and dropping from 18th to 25th in the standings. Up front, Ryan Heuser dominated the initial 10 laps after the restart, holding off Alex Crapser and John Tharp before the #14 finally stole it away.

John Tharp blows a tire with 39 laps to go! All the hard work to pass the #138 falls into the drain hole, limping to a 36th place finish despite a dominating effort. Heuser, Alex Crapser and Matt Raboin fought for the top spot afterwards, with Heuser and points leader Ken Pettit coming in early. Just after they stopped, Bink Lucas and John Battista crashed in turn-3, bringing out the yellow flag mid-cycle. 18 cars entered the pit road prior, handing them the top-18 spots as Matt Raboin and Alex Crapser dropped to the rear. They would never find their way back.

Ken Pettit takes the lead! Ryan Heuser struggled early with the 2-lap older tires, handing the top-2 spots to teammates Pettit and Rick Jackson. The #44 Crown Royal team looks to tie Buddy Griswald for his 70th career victory, taking the lead away with 20 laps to go! Miracle-man Cristian Torres powerhoused his way to the second position in search of his first win, sandwiched between the Jackson cousins, Timothy McDonnell and Pettit. Scott Jackson, who stood in the 45th position during the initial laps, finally passed Torres with 7 laps to go with a hard-charge from Timothy McDonnell from behind. Jackson hasn't won a race since the 2021 Sharpie 500. McDonnell drives with severe bruising on his body after an a mortifying accident last week at Kansas. The #22 made his mo ... Read more »
