Sixth starting Greg Moore drove into second and started to chase Hersh. Hersh was flying on the high side and kept fending off Moore ’s advances.

Ruhlman settled for second over Ryan Fraley, Rod George, Tyler Newhart, Zach Morrow, Nolan Groves, Blaze Myers, Arnie Kent and Brian Hartzell. Rod George and Tyler Newhart were the heat winners.

A three car show between Joe Martin, Michael Duritsky and Mike Laughard had the fans cheering. Joe Martin took the lead at the start and appeared to be on his way to an easy win. Duritsky had other ideas and began to close the gap. Durtisky and Martin went at it lap after lap. Durtisky kept trying to get under Martin and finally did when a caution appeared on lap ten. Martin took off again on the restart with Duritsky in tow. Meanwhile Mike Laughard began to come on and kept them in his sight. Laughard was making a pass for second when he got a little side ways in four and Duritsky had nowhere to go and got into him. This put Laughard to the back on the restart. Duritsky finally got by Martin on lap 16 but a flat tire did him in two laps later. Martin led the final laps to beat Laughard, who made his return to Crate racing. Duritsky came back to finish third over Justin Kann, Doug Glessner, Ray Dallape, Jamie Swank, Rob Coffaro, Tim Snare and Kyle Smith Jr. It was Martin’s fifth win of the year. Heat winners were Duritsky and Martin.

Young went pit side with a flat the following lap. He made it out in time to start on the tail. Meanwhile out front it was the high flying Swank looking for his first of the season. Swank was driving the Ray Dallape #95. Cody Young came charging back through the field and was second by lap six. The first half of the race was caution plagued. However, the last six were a show as the two young driver looked like veterans running side by side in the turns and never touching. Swank held off Young to earn his first win of the 2021 season. Young was second over Chuck Dizzle, Jesse Laughard (from 14th), Jamie Noel, Todd Davis, Bill Eckenrode, Matt Gornick, Timothy Baker and Jordan McEvoy.

It’s A Night of Special Events at Dog Hollow Speedway Friday Night
August 20 / Rained out August 13.

STRONGSTOWN, PA (August 18, 2021) – 358 Steel Blocks, RUSH Late Models, Pure/Strictly Stocks & RUSH Wingless Sprints will be in the spotlight on Friday, August 20. Extra money will be on tap for those four divisions. The Texas Auto Ranch 4 Cylinders are also on the racing card that night. This past Friday, August 13 saw Mother Nature wipe out the show.

The 358 Steel Blocks will share the spotlight with the RUSH Late Models in a pair of features paying $1000 to win each. The RUSH Late Models will be a non-point race. Management made the decision to add them on the evening’s card. The Pure/Strictly Stock Special will be running for $500 to win.

In their first appearance back on July 23, Greg Moore came home with the checkered flag on July 23. Twenty-five cars were on hand for that show and we are looking for another good field Friday. The biggest winner in the 358 class when it last ran at Dog was Nate Smith, who has seven wins in the class. Clinton Hersh won an open race for the class in 2019. Nick Fulmer, Kyle Smith, Jr. and Jeff Sweeney were also winners in 2019.

The RUSH Late Models were added to the show and they will be running for an increased purse paying $1000 to win. Since it was added late to the schedule, this will be a non-points event for the class. Joe Martin and Kyle Hardy each have four wins a piece with Michael Duritsky also parking in the winner’s circle this season. We are looking for a few extra outsiders to stop in for the extra cash.

The Pure/Strictly Stock Challenge race will have their 20-lap paying $500 to winner. It will be a Your Track Rules race. Our RUSH Stock Cars will compete also. The race was originally scheduled for August 13, but was rained out.

Every week we’ve been asked to have a race for the Pure Stocks as many drivers have stated they miss racing at Dog Hollow. “We are committed to making the AMSOIL/Ron’s Collision Center RUSH Stock Car class grow. A lot of drivers have asked us to please run a race for them. So, we decided we would run them this week,” Smith said.

The Texas Auto Ranch 4 Cylinders always put on exciting show at Dog Hollow. This class is always super competitive and has plenty of racing action. There is still a $700 bonus up for grabs for any driver that can win at Dog Hollow and Hidden Valley Speedway.

Pit Gates will open at 5 PM, Grandstands at 6 PM, Hot Laps 7 PM, with racing at 7:30 sharp. Adult tickets are $14, Seniors 60+ & Veterans $12, Kids 12 & Under FREE. Pit Passes are $30, Youth Pit Passes 6 to 12 $15, 5 & Under FREE.

Dog Hollow Speedway and Hidden Valley Speedway Bonus’ for Super Late Models and 4 Cylinders Continue to Grow.

STRONGSTOWN, PA (August 2, 2021) – Hidden Valley Speedway (Clearfield) and Dog Hollow Speedway (Strongstown) teamed up back in June to offer bonus money to the Super Late Models and 4 Cylinders. Each track puts in $100 every week. Any driver who can win Friday at Dog Hollow and then Saturday at Hidden Valley collects the bonus money. If you win at Hidden Valley on Saturday and come back Friday at Dog Hollow and win you would also be eligible for the bonus.

The bonus has only been claimed once so far. Johnstown’s Billy Eash won the bonus the very first week and took home an extra $100. Since then the pot has continued to grow as nobody has been able to claim it. The Super Late Model bonus is up to $400 should a driver win both. Luke Hoffner won Saturday night at Hidden Valley and is in line to claim the bonus should he win at Dog on Friday night.

The 4 Cylinders is another story. The bonus has never been claimed and is now at $700. That is on top of the winners purse. Only a few drivers have tried but as that bonus keeps climbing I’m sure that will change. Wellsburg, WV’s Kevin Criswell won at Hidden Valley and may just stop in Friday at Dog Hollow. Criswell has been in victory lane at Dog Hollow once back in 2019.

Dog Hollow Speedway runs each Friday night with the MCS Super Late Models, Townsend Gas & Oil RUSH Late Models, Texas Auto Ranch 4 Cylinders and AMSOIL/Ron’s Auto Body RUSH Stock Cars.

The Hidden Valley Speedway runs on Saturday with the Subway Super Late Models, TH Porta John Semi Lates, Hugill Sanitation Small Block Modifieds, Winter’s Signs Street Stocks and Little’s Drive In 4 Cylinders.

David and I spent many long nights working on cars and street racing. Jimmy and I attended many races together near and far. Tragically they were taken from us way too soon. JB was then, and is today, a very important person in my life and no doubt my racing roots stem from the old #52. Or the pink panther as the neighborhood kids referred to Jim’s racecar “Jimmy was one of the nicest guys I remember,” stated Kittey. “He always had time to talk to us as a kid after the races in the pits. I would root for him at Jennerstown and Latrobe.

Burns was inducted the Jennerstown Speedway Hall of Fame by local historians. Kyle Hardy, of Linden, VA, has won four races on the 2021 tour and is a two time winner at Dog Hollow this season.
