June 12: In the Hoosier Tire MidAtlantic DIRTcar Super Late Models, Cranberry Township's John Flinner picked up his first win of the season. Outside pole sitter Mike Norris grabbed the lead at the start and led the first three laps before a yellow for a Tom Bateman spin.

On the restart Norris continued to leadwith Flinner hot on his heels. Norris bobbled a bit in one and two and that was all the cagey veteran Flinner needed to get by and take the lead. Flinner, who started 5th, opened up a lead, but Norris was not missing a beat running the best race of his young

career. Flinner weathered yellows on lap 16 and on lap 24, to pick up the win his 27th at PPMS. Norris had a career best to finish a strong second, followed by Lynn Geisler (in a spec car), John Garvin (in his best ever PPMS run), and Jared Miley, from 12th.

It was Flinner’s first win since August of 2009, and since the death of his daughter, who he dedicated the win to and also to his mother, who has been ill.

The Brougher’s Machine Shop Fastrak Pro Late Model Crates 25 Lap Grand Prix saw Greensburg Pa.'s Daniel Angelicchio pick up his first win of the season and first since 2008, and his third career win.

Rocky Kugel led the first three laps before Mike Pegher Jr. took over on a restart. Pegher seemed to have things under control pulling to over a straightaway over fellow two time winner this season, Kyle Lukon.

A caution flew on lap 15 for the stalled Justin Lamb. On the restart, Kyle Lukon took over the lead as Pegher didn’t seem to have the speed he had earlier. Then suddenly on lap 17 Pegher broke a wheelcoming off turn four bringing out the caution.

Lukon again grabbed the lead and opened up a bit of a margin. Angelicchio moved past Rocky Kugel for second, and seem to be closing on Lukon quickly. Then on lap 21 Lukon got a flat tire slowed and brought out the yellow. On the restart Angelicchio pulled away to lead the last four laps for the win.

Kugel had his best run of the season to finish second followed by Mike Reft, Dennis Niederriter, and Dan Karalagas.
