Ryan Lynn picked up the win at Path Valley Saturday night in a thriller on a very emotional night.

The most experienced driver in PASS history won from the pole but it wasn't easy. A 26 car field took the green with track officials opting to forego a consy and let all cars in attendance run. The smooth running lynn held the lead for most of the race while Kyle Ganoe and Zach Newlin both made a charge from deep in the field. As the race drew to a close lapped car of Kristen Hess found herself in the middle of a battle for the lead as Ganoe eyed another win and focused on the PASS title and Newlin drove with emotion looking to score an important win for a dear friend lost just early Saturday.

William Sweger, a young race fan that has been fighting Leukemia for some time succumbed to the illness early Saturday after a long fight. Newlin championed a support campaign for "Williams Fight" and others from the racing community joined in the fight to providing financial and emotional support for William and the Family during the long struggle. Williams parents were on Hand Saturday night just hours after their son lost his life as they were most comfortable in the company of the racing family at the races that William enjoyed so much.
A moment of silence was observed for William and Newlin Paced the field before the race to honor the family and his young fan.

Lynn surrendered the lead briefly but regained it as the top 3 shuffled for position through lap traffic. Ganoe gave a strong run but remained cautious amid the determination of Newlin. A late crash triggered 2 green white checkered restarts but Newlin settled for second in a valiant attempt. Ganoe came home 3rd.

Beer Hill Cup race 4 this Saturday at Path

by:Admin - 7/12/2017
The Beer Hill cup has reached the half way point and the top 10 are separated by just 24 points. This week the cup series heads to Path Valley which has been a pillar of PASS since it's inception as the series looks forward to a 20th anniversary celebration in 2018.

The little track with big action saw record crowds recently as the mid-state continues to grow fond of the oval that has seen many improvements over the years. Saturday should be no disappointment as PASS competitors have known the secret of this challenging track several times each season. Many of the teams in attendance Saturday know the track well from years with PASS or one of the many other divisions fans enjoy every weekend at Path Valley.

We're encouraging teams and fans to come out this Saturday as PASS puts Path Valley in the spotlight. Our friends at Laurel Highlands and the Mid Atlantic sprint series are idle this weekend so teams exclusive to RaceSaver will be welcome without handicapping for this special event.

Scott Ellerman became the fourth different winner in as many races this year as he claimed the win in the 20-lap Freedmont Mortgage Lending PASS /IMCA 305 Sprint car main.
Ellerman started fifth but didn't assume command until lap 13 when he drove by leader Colby Dice and was able to maintain the top spot for the win.

Ken Duke, Jr. led the first two laps before Dice took over and led until lap 12.
Tyler Reeser spun on the fifth lap but kept going and finished second in the 20-lap feature with Dice, 10th starting Kyle Craker and Darren Miller the top five finishers.

Sixth through tenth were Dae Brown, Jaremi Hanson, Cale Reigle, Duke and John Haegele.
Cale Reigle, Billy Ney and Kyle Craker won heat races for the 28 PASS 305 Sprints. The consolation was won by Kyle Ganoe, whose car went up in smoke just after taking the checkered flag, forcing him to scratch from the feature.
