STRONGSTOWN, PA (July 23, 2021) – Mike Altobelli, Jr. (Saxton) and Greg Moore (Defiance) were the big winners in the $1200 to win specials for the E-Mods and 358 Limited Lates Friday night at Dog Hollow Speedway. The PA Thunder on the Dirt Vintage Modifieds made their second appearance and it was Cody Schultz taking the Modified half with Jeff Manners winning the Sportsman half of the feature. Cody Young won his second feature in the Texas Auto Ranch 4 Cylinders and Jeremy Zufall won his fifth in the AMSOIL/Ron’s Collision Center RUSH Stock Car main.

Mike Altobelli, Jr. is no stranger to victory lane at Dog Hollow and he added another win to his resume in the $1200 to win E-Mod special. Altobelli jumped out into the lead after battling with Jonathan Taylor and took off. Altobelli went unchallenged in the 20 lap event to park in victory lane. Dan Davies, Ty Rhoades, Jonathan Taylor and David Stremme completed the top five. Jonathan Taylor won the heat.

The Texas Auto Ranch 4 Cylinder feature had action all through it. Chris Anderson led the first lap before he broke something in the right front suspension. On lap two Dylan Young went out over turn two. No less than five drivers were duking it out for the top spot. Cody Young took over the top spot and was chased by Mike Phillipson, Jeff Huber and Joe Huber. Young and Phillipson made contact in turn three. This allowed Jeff Huber to take over the number one spot. Huber led a few laps before Young was able to shoot back by. Phillipson soon followed and the pair were trying to hold of Jeff and Joe Huber. Cody Young was able to hold on for his first win since opening day. Phillipson was second over Jeff Huber, Joe Huber, Rob Williams (from 17th), Justin Williams, Brandon Hoffner, AJ Hoffner, Noah Swank and Michael Sinclair. Heat winners were Cody Young, Dylan Young, Jeff Huber and Mike Phillipson. The B-Main went to Rob Williams.

Greg Moore took the lead at the drop of the green in the 25-lap 358 Limited Late Feature. Moore was chased by Devin Weyandt and Robbie Black. Six yellows slowed the race in the early going. Moore kept the lead through every restart with Weyandt in tow. Weyandt kept him in view but could not catch the flying Moore. Weyandt settled for second over Clinton Hersh (from 17th), Shawn Shoemaker, Paul Ivory, Jakob Piper, JR Toner, Robbie Black, Rick Strong and Bernie Whiteford, Jr. Qualifying heats were won by Moore, Weyandt, Black and Ryan Jacoby. Hersh won the B-Main.

In the AMSOIL/Ron’s Collision Center RUSH Stock Cars it looked like Jeremy Zufall was going to run away with it. Zufall took the initial lead and was pulling away. A caution bunched them back up and this time Bob Torquato stuck with Zufall chasing him to the checker. Torquato won the heat.

Cody Schultz proved he’s the man to beat in the Pa Vintage Modified Series. Schultz wasted no time taking the top spot and ran away from the pack. Steve Longo, Thomas Warburton, Jeff Manners and Paul St. John were the top five. Manners won the Sportsman portion of the feature. Heats were won by Schultz and Manners.
