Zach Newlin kicked off his season at Williams Grove Speedway back in March with a runner-up finish but since then it has been an uphill battle to get back into the top five.  

April’s events were rained out and earlier in May he struggled to two finishes outside the top fifteen.

As the month of May came to a close Friday night, Newlin was back at ‘The Grove’ in the Mansberger Motorsports No.21m aiming to get back to where the team started.


DATE:  May 31, 2024

  • Class:  358 Sprint Cars
  • Track:  Williams Grove Speedway
  • City, State:   Mechanicsburg, PA
  • Quick Stats:  29 cars, Heat 9th (7), A-main 12th (20)



Newlin appeared to be on his way to achieving his goal at the start of the night.  

The Millerstown, PA native started 7th in his heat, was up to 5th, and challenging for 4th with one lap to go when contact initiated by another car caused him to spin off turn two.  Although he was able to restart, the one remaining lap was not enough to climb back into a transfer spot.  He finished 9th.

In the B-main, Zach wasted no time ensuring he would put the Mansberger 21m in the show.  On the opening lap he charged from 5th to 2nd, then pursued Williams Grove 358 sprint point leader Doug Hammaker for the lead.  Newlin settled for the runner-up finish and a spot in the finale.

Starting deep in the 25-lap feature field, Newlin started moving forward from the drop of the green.  From the 20th starting spot, he climbed inside the top fifteen by lap seven.  His progress continued and culminated with a 12th-place finish.

“Moving forward a few spots in the heat and eight spots in the feature shows we made progress tonight, so we will build on that.”, Newlin commented.


The next outing for Newlin in the Mansberger Motorsports No.21m will likely be June 21st at Williams Grove Speedway.
