Busy 2022 Will Also Include Several 358 Sprint Races
Millerstown, PA – March 2, 2022

During both the 2020 and 2021 seasons, Zach Newlin was fortunate to have the chance to dabble in winged 410 sprint car competition in Central Pennsylvania. It was enough to show his potential, and it was enough to land a full time opportunity for 2022.
When the season opens at Port Royal Speedway this month, Newlin will once again be behind the wheel of the Pryde Motorsports No.29, fielded by long-time owner Allen Pryde. It’s the same seat he finished last season in, but now the team has the benefit of having worked together and an offseason to prepare.
Newlin will have good equipment, a knowledgeable car owner, and his long time crew chief (and brother), Lance Newlin by his side. Still, he is realistic when preparing for his first full season in the tough 410 sprint car division in the heart of PA Posse-land.
“Sure, it would be great to pick up a win. I think it could happen if things go right for us, but a good goal for us is to run in the top 10 consistently. If we aim for that and achieve it, then we will be in position to grab some top 5’s or podium runs when the opportunity is there. You can’t expect too much, but you have to challenge yourself“, Newlin said.
He’s not just saying the right things. He speaks from experience. He’s been there before on other levels. He may still be ‘green’ when it comes to 410 racing, but Newlin has been racing and climbing through the ranks over the past 20+ years and has achieved his share of success in each of them.
There is no reason to believe this new adventure won’t have a similar outcome. This wheelman and his team are likely to garner some attention and turn some heads this season and beyond.
The majority of the Pryde Motorsports 2022 schedule will bring the Grove Financial & Associates / Dillman Hauling / Del Grosso Foods / Ron’s RV Sales / Kirby Kitner Excavating / FIT Transportation / Christine Booher, Realtor / Gio’s BBQ / T&M Homebuilders / Robert Lee Jr. Trucking / R&B Auto Proz / Strange Oval / Walker Performance Filtration / RAM Acoustics / Newlin Bar Service No.29 to the ‘Speed Palace’ in Port Royal, PA, but you can expect to see them at BAPS Motor Speedway as well. Other events could be added as the season progresses, so be sure to follow along to keep up to date.
In addition to a substantial schedule of possibly 30-35 races in the 410 sprint car, Newlin will also be returning to the seat of the Mansberger Motorsports No.21m 358 sprint car, which primarily competes at Williams Grove Speedway.
“I love racing with Dan (Mansberger) and his team. He’s got good equipment and my brother (Lance) and I have a good time racing with them. We were a contender last year and had a couple good runs early, but gremlins kept surfacing and taking us out of races”, Newlin commented.
“I probably won’t get to race the Grove with the 410 this year, so this gives me a chance to race there. I love the challenge of Williams Grove. If you win there, you’ve earned it. Plus, seat time is seat time. You can never get enough laps and experience“, the Millerstown, PA native shared.
