Points will be tallied for each driver and the top five in the final standings will be awarded the same payout.

The series kicks off on Saturday, March 30 at Evergreen. Then it’s on to Mahoning Valley on Sunday, April 28. Sunday, May 19 race No. 3 moves back to Evergreen. On Sunday, June 16 Mahoning welcomes back the show for round 4 and then Evergreen on Sunday, July 21. The series stays at Evergreen for a Sunday, August 25 event while Mahoning gets a reappearance for the next two on Sunday, September 15 and Sunday, October 20. The conclusion of the inaugural twin-track outing will be Saturday afternoon, November 2 at Evergreen.

The series is open to all 4-cylinder, front wheel drive Enduro cars.

Each track has other racing events slated for all of the aforementioned dates as well.

Brown Wins Summer Splash 50; Ross and O’Neill take make ups

Barbush III Garnishes first career win; Zeiner dominates 2nd late Model Main

Most things are always worth the wait and that was the case this Friday night at Evergreen Raceway. It has been over a month since the Late Models, Street Stocks, and 4 cylinders have seen action on the 1/3 asphalt oval in Drums, Pennsylvania. Double features were on tap for the Late Models and 4 Cylinders.

The Barbush Auto Sales Street Stock Summer Splash 50 win would go to Broc Brown who would bring home an $800 payday. Moyer Trucking LLC, Barbush Auto Sales in memory of Frank Barbush, Evergreen Raceway and American Property Solutions combined to add an additional $800 to the remaining part of the field.

Dan Pawlcki would lead the field to the drop of the green flag over teammate and point leader Rich Paciotti. Just a few single car spins would slow the pace of the race within the first 30 laps. The final 20 laps would be nothing but spectacular as the top 4 cars would battle side by side, lap after lap showing nothing short of pure talent and precision on the track. Fans were on the edge of their seats as Paciotti and Broc Brown would duke it out side by side never touching for 15 straight laps, even swapping the lead multiple times between the two of them. Paciotti was able to hold the top spot for several laps but with 5 to go, Brown was able to grab the lead for good and win for the 2nd time this season. Paciotti would finish 2nd over Mike Pollack who was later penalized 2 spots for an illegal pass giving 3rd to Todd Ahner over Eric Kocher and Mike Pollack.

Heat Race Winners: Rich Paciotti, Eric Kocher, Broc Brown

The regularly schedule late model feature would see Plum Air 100 Winner Zane Zeiner dominate once again in-route to his 2nd late model checkered of the season. Steve Shultz, Mike Sweeney, make up feature winner Nick Ross and Geno Steigerwalt finishing in the top 5.

Nick Ross had a dismal start to the 2017 season however he came back in 2018 and  would make up for lost time by picking up the win over Sweeney and Zeiner. Zeiner would lead the first half of the race until a caution would come out for the overheating 42x of Danny Cascioli. On the restart Zeiner’s pass was deemed to be illegal and he would be penalized two spots for passing below the white line. Ross would hold off challenges from Sweeney and Zeiner the remainder of the event.

Heat Race Winners Shultz and Zeiner

Harry O’Neill can wheel anything and right now it is a dream season for him as he picked up his 2nd win of the season. The 4 Cylinder make up feature would be first on deck and Beau Drobot and O’Neill would duke it out for the first 16 laps. On lap 17 Azarowicz would make it 3 wide into turn 1. Drobot got the worst of it as he ended up hitting the backstretch wall head on. Drobot would be ok. O’Neill would cruise to the checkered over Kapish and Josh Oswald

Joey Barbush III would hold the checkered flag for his first career stock car win in the 4-cylinder main. Barbush would take the lead on lap number 5 and a torrid battle ensued with the Tito Juice number 33 of TJ Kapish. Kapish and Barbush would swap the lead multiple times throughout the event but Barbush would not be denied as he would take the win over Bob Azarowicz, Josh Oswald, Kapish and O’Neill. Barbush would dedicate the win to his grandfather Frank Barbush who had passed away 11 years ago the day prior.
