Polesitter Cale Reigle would lead the first seven laps of the 18-lap 305-sprint car main before Drew Ritchey would take over.
After starting eighth in the field, Ritchey was taking no prisoners in the non-stop affair, cruising as high around the speedway as he could possibly get while flirting with disaster aboard his No. 880.
On more than one occasion Ritchey slammed the outside walls and even rode the first turn rail at one point but kept going to get the win, sometimes passing two cars at a time to advance through the field.
Ritchey took the win in exciting style and was greeted by his veteran grandfather, Junior Ritchey in victory lane for a special family victory lane celebration.
Reigle ended up 1.861 seconds behind at the finish with Scott Ellerman in third followed by Tyler Reeser and Roger Irvine.
Sixth through 10th went to Ken Duke Jr., Dave Grube, Zach Newlin, Kyle Ganoe and Kassidy Kreitz.
Heats went to Jaremi Hanson, Ganoe and Reeser with Nate Gramley taking the consolation race.

In only his second visit in two years, Cale Reigle of Newport, Pa. scored his second win in as many tries in the IMCA/Pass sprint Auto barn 20-lap feature. Defending limited late model champ Andrew Yoder of Middleburg, Pa., went flag to flag to win the C&E Containers, Freyco Racing 25-lap feature. Other winners include Tommy Dawson of Wapwallopen, Pa. getting his first ever feature win in the 15-lap Pro-Stock feature sponsored by T&C Transport Inc. Kyle Workman of Lock Haven, Pa. was the winner of the FWD four-cylinder Glenn Hawbaker sponsored 12-lap feature, with Alec Quiggle winning his second 600-micro sprint feature in the 15-lap event.
Cale Reigle got the jump from his front row starting spot and never looked back in the IMCA/Pass sprint car feature, in an event that was slowed by only two caution flags. On both restarts Cale was able to pull away from first time visitor Kyle Smith from South Egremont, Mass. Who is getting help from John Matrafailo who has logged many miles around the CCMS speedway. Unfortunately, the second caution was for a spin by Smith who lost the handle coming out of the fourth turn on lap13. On the next restart Cale was able to get away from Dale Schweikert, and drove away to his second career CCMS speedway win. “The track was beautiful tonight, this is the second time here in these cars, and we won the last time, we would like to race here more but it is tough getting off work on a Friday night and driving up from Harrisburg, to race here”, said Cale. “Crew chief Zach changed a tire from the heat to the feature, and he made the right call. “I love racing in this class and this is where I will end my driving career with this group”, noted Cale. Cale drove his J&J chassis with a C&G racing engine the hood of his #99 to the win over Kyle Ganoe who passed Dale Schweikert on lap 17 for the second spot but could not mount a challenge to Reigle. Schweikert held on for third with seventh starting Ken Duke coming on strong at the end for fourth, with Drew Ritchie in fifth. Heats for 18 sprints went to Reigle and Ritchie.

By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway
YORK HAVEN, PA
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.
