HARTNETT TRIUMPHANT IN RETURN TO VICTORY LANE

Kevin Hartnett (Towanda, PA) hasn't exactly had the best season of his career thus far. Picking up only 1 win seems uncharacteristic for the man they call the Stalker. That all changed Friday evening as the former track champion saw some of that championship-caliber swagger return and he parked it in victory lane for the second time in 2018. Mike Loney and Hartnett brought the SUNOCO RACING FUEL distributed by INSINGER PERFORMANCE Modifieds down to the green flag and Hartnett immediately shot out to the lead. Loney tried his best to make up the lost ground, but Hartnett decided it was best to keep his car in another zip code. And that is what Hartnett did. With a new power plant under the ho

PETRILAK THRILLS CROWD; NAGEL SHINES ON LEGEND'S NIGHT - BOTH EARNING FIRST VICTORIES OF 2018!

The 2018 Pappy Beavan Memorial was filled with a night of memories. Emotions ran high as a great crowd was on hand to honor the legends of the speedway and to watch the new class of inductees who have rightfully earned their spots into Penn Can Speedway's Hall of Fame. Nick Petrilak made a last lap pass to win his first race of the season. Mike Nagel Jr got the monkey off his back and picked up a big payday for his first win of the year. Dusty Decker claimed top honors for the first event of the Triple Crown Throwdown and Kenny Underwood picked up the bounty in the 4-Cylinder division. Jamie Frantz powered to his 2nd victory in as many weeks, while Shane Wolf Jr was the first across the line

TRIPLE CROWN THROWDOWN SERIES MOVES BACK TO PENN CAN SPEEDWAY - FIRST EVENT THIS FRIDAY!

Back in February, Josh Towner announced a three race mini-series at the Penn Can Speedway banquet for the Factory Stock division. Unfortunately about a month later, we would learn that Penn Can's status was very much in doubt as the acting promoter of the speedway stepped down just a few weeks prior to opening night. With no one to promote the facility, several planned events such as the Dick Longstreet Memorial and the Triple Crown Throwdown were in limbo. And just like the Longstreet's had to do with their race (which was moved to Five Mile Point), Towner also had to find a new home for his series due to Penn Can's uncertain future. Dean Catlin and Skyline Raceway thankfully stepped up for

ALAN RUDALAVAGE DOMINATES TO CAPTURE THIRD VICTORY OF SEASON

Alan Rudalavage extended his points lead on Friday night by capturing his third victory at Penn Can Speedway this season. The veteran driver jumped out to the lead early, grabbing it from Brad Shaffer, who won his first heat of the season earlier that night. As the laps ticked off, Nick Petrilak rallied from his 4th position up to 2nd, battling with Dan Pompey and Kevin Hartnett along the way. Unfortunately for Petrilak, there would be no NASCAR-style debris caution to help him out, as the modifieds went all 30-laps under green. Rudalavage would prove to difficult to catch, stretching the track of the feature event in dominating fashion. Petrilak settled for 2nd, Pompey 3rd, Hartnett 4th and

RUDALAVAGE CONQUERS; DECKER NOTCHES FIRST OF CAREER; BOUNTY ON SCHANE ANNOUNCED

Butch Getz and Alan “Hollywood” Rudalavage brought the Modified main down-around 3 and 4 to the green flag. H-Wood would jump out to the lead early as Getz would look to chase him down and reel him back in, but Rudalavage would stay as smooth as he could through the tricky turns. Getz would eventually bobble and lose ground. Nick Petrilak was on the move from his 6th starting position however. Petrilak would soon crack the top 3, setting his sights on the 145 machine. Petrilak hustled on the top side of the speedway, eventually catching Rudalavage and would challenge for the lead. Unfortyunately a caution would fly just before the halfway point. Rudalavage would choose the outside, making Pe
