The first feature of the evening featured Ron’s Collision Center Street Stock division. Angie Kimberly took the lead from pole position and never looked back. It was Kimberly’s second career win and her first of the season. She became the second female driver of the year to visit Stoney’s victory lane at Jennerstown Speedway.
The Farmers Union CO-OP Charger division produced side-by-side competition with riders Steve Singo, Nick Niemiec and last week’s winner Nate Valente. After a fierce battle, Singo returned to Stoney’s Victory Lane for the third time this season.

In the One Stop Auto Sales Pro Stock feature, points leader Jeff Giles took an early lead from his No. 1 spot. It looked like Giles would turn a decisive lead into another win this season. However, Adam Kostelnik would have something to say about it. Kostelnik, who suffered mechanical problems two weeks in a row, would not be denied as he took his first win of the 2022 season after starting sixth.
Not only is Johnathan Haburcsak the current points leader at Jennerstown Speedway in the Somerset Trust Fast N’ Furious 4 Division, but he also leads the NASCAR Northeast Regional points for his division. Haburcsak was seeking his first career visit to Stoney’s Victory Lane and was a man on a mission on Saturday. It was a fierce battle with Caleb Vasos and a late charging Lance Shawley, but when the checkered flag fell it was Haburcsak celebrating a very emotional victory lane.

After a caution-filled feature last week, the Stoystown Auto Wrecker Modifieds, they went flag-to-flag with their 20-lap event. John Fama took his third victory of the season. Fama was challenged by Doug Glessner. However, Glessner was unable to mount a charge for the win. Last week’s winner Tom Golik finished third on the line.
The final of the evening belonged to Barry Awtey, the winningest driver of all time at Jennerstown Speedway. In Martella’s Pharmacy Late Model Division, Awtey dominated from pole position, earning his third victory of the season.
Next week there will be two full nights of racing. A full program will begin on July 2, followed by a free concert by the Katelyn Rose Band. On July 3, a second full day of racing will be followed by fireworks presented by JR Tunstall Auto and Truck Repair.
