McPherson Looks To Repeat in 2018; Schneider Leads Penn-Ohio Stocks Into Battle

Last year, track champion Corey McPherson was able to pull off a signature win as he bested the Penn-Ohio Pro Stock field, comprised primarily of cars with open motors, using his normal GM Performance 604 power plant. McPherson held off a hard charging Andrew Gordon to preserve the victory and he didn’t stop there as he also topped the field in the DIRTcar/RUSH Pro Stocks.  McPherson’s once again turned in a season to remember in 2018, earning yet another track title in a battle with Tyler Dietz that went down to the final lap of the regular season.

Coming into Saturday, Chris Schneider leads the current Penn-Ohio Pro Stock Series point standings by nine markers over Andrew Gordon and lies 18 points ahead of third running Rob Shook. Schneider has found victory lane twice in series action this season including a $2017 feature win in the annual Ed Laboon Memorial at Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway on June 2, and has several Autumn-Motive Fest wins in his career under his belt.
