Sarver, PA (September 22, 2018) Brad Sweet had a fast car all night it’s driver picked the perfect time to make it go just a little faster when it mattered most on Saturday night at The Action track. Sweet moved forward from his fifth starting spot, reeling in and passing one driver ahead of him at a time including World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Cars points leader Donny Schatz en route to his first career victory at Lernerville Speedway.

Daryn Pittman brought the field to the green flag in a main event that took a few tries to get rolling as early cautions as Brent Marks, Justin Henderson, and Shane Stewart all brought out yellow flags in the first three laps. However, once momentum was established in the 35 lap main event, it set a stage for a classic showdown between Pittman, Tim Shaffer, Donny Schatz and Sweet as the four drivers battled for positions for the next thirty laps.

Pittman assumed early control of the field and held the lead early on until Shaffer made his way around him with six laps in the books.  Meanwhile, Schatz and Sweet were swapping the third spot at will just behind the leaders. With Shaffer in lapped traffic, Schatz and Sweet began to close in with every lap. Schatz was able to pull the string on a pass for the lead on lap 22. However, Sweet was finding a bit more speed than Schatz as the laps clicked of and managed to pull to Schatz’s tail tank on lap 26 and wasted no time in making his way around on lap 28.

Once out front, Sweet faced one more restart following a caution with 32 laps down, and left no doubt about whom had the fastest car on this night as he drove away from the field and towards Terry Bowser Excavating Victory Lane. Shaffer would round out the podium while Logan Schuchart completed a strong performance with a fourth place finish.  Hard charger honors went to Danny Dietrich who managed to climb from his 14th starting spot to a sixth place finish.

In Allegheny Sprint Tour action, Robbie Bartchy led the 20 lap main event early on, holding off strong challenges from Roger Irvine and Tyler Denochik only to succumb to a pass by Jeff Miller on lap 14. Miller looked to have the top spot locked up as he managed to stretch a sizable lead over Bartchy until he jumped the cushion with 18 laps down. Due to time constraints, officials made the decision to checker the main event at that point, giving the win to Bartchy.
