MECHANICSBURG, Pa. – Justin Peck wired the field for the 410 sprint car victory at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night.
The $5,500 score marked Peck’s first Williams Grove victory.
At the wheel of the Buch Motorsports No. 13, Peck withstood three restarts with T.J. Stutts on his tail to pick up the win.
Peck drew the number two pill to start the 25-lap sprint car main and jetted out to the lead when action began, entering the rear of the field with just five laps in the books.
The pace was lightning-quick on the early season surface, and Peck had a three-second lead over Stutts when Tyler Courtney spun in the second corner one lap shy of the halfway point.
Another caution flag bunched the field up a lap later, this time for a stopped Robbie Kendall on the frontstretch.
Peck then hit traffic again with three laps to go but had the field covered. He was racing onto the frontstretch for the checkers when, instead, he saw the yellow flag flash over the field, setting up a one-lap dash to the finish.
Peck drove easily to the win from there by 1.337 seconds over Stutts, while 14th-starting Tim Shaffer tried for third on the final restart.
Shaffer tried to bolt outside of Chase Dietz in the first corner when the green replaced the yellow, but despite a blistering effort, he failed to gain the spot.
Steve Buckwalter finished fifth after riding inside the top five during the entire event.
Sixth through 10th went to Freddie Rahmer, Kyle Reinhardt, Ryan Taylor, Danny Dietrich and Kerry Madsen.
Heat wins went to Peck, Stutts and Anthony Macri, with the B-Main going to Lucas Wolfe.
“My guys had this 13 rolling,” said Peck. “We seem to hit it pretty well lately. Every time we hit the track, it’s fast and moving forward.”
“It feels good to be standing on the frontstretch here,” Peck added.
In the 30-lap ULMS super late model main, Max Blair took the win, recording his first ever Williams Grove win as well.
Blair’s $3,000 win came by 1.769 over Coleby Frye, Jason Covert, Andy Haus and Dylan Yoder.
Kyle Lee, Shaun Jones, Gene Knaub, Justin Weaver and Ryan Scott rounded out the top 10.
Bryan Bernheisel set quick time over the 22-car field with a lap of 20.105 seconds, however, at the start of the first heat race he barrel rolled his No. 119 through the first corner and out over the guardrail, exiting the speedway.
Mike Lupfer, Blair and Dylan Yoder won the heat races.
