Not only was the ‘Dirty 30’ 358 sprint car event at BAPS MotorSpeedway last weekend part of the Summer Series events schedule, it was the highest paying race of the season for the open wheel division anywhere in the area.  


The opportunity for a little extra cash, the series points, and bragging rights brought 36 teams to the York Haven, PA facility Saturday evening.

The field was divided into four groups by pill draw.  They would qualify and heat race within those groups to set the lineup for the first twenty spots for the feature event.  The final four spots would come from the B-main.


Zach Newlin, aboard the Mansberger Motorsports No.21m, logged a disappointing 7th fastest lap of the nine cars in group one.  


From the 7th starting spot in the first 8-lap heat race, Newlin would have to make it into the top five by the checkered flag to advance to the A-main.  He only managed to get to 6th, which shuffled him to the B-main for a final shot to make the show.


Newlin was able to take the win in the B-main, leading all eight laps and securing his spot in the 30-lap finale.


After getting involved in a lap four incident during the A-main, Newlin navigated his way through traffic from the rear of the field to garner a hard-earned 12th place finish.

Newlin and the Mansberger Motorsports team will be back at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday, September 23rd looking to close out the season with a strong finish in the final 358 sprint car race of 2022 at the legendary Pennsylvania facility.
