Zach Newlin finally got to put a long-awaited two-race weekend under his belt for the first time during the 2024 season.  He has had plenty of those in the past during his successful 305 and 358 sprint car days but when you are working to build your own 410 sprint car team, they don’t come as easily or frequently.

Friday and Saturday he doubled-up with the Mansberger Motorsports 358 and his own 410 sprint car to get some quality seat time.

QUICK RESULTS

DATE:  June 21, 2024

  • Class:  358 Sprint Cars
  • Track:  Williams Grove Speedway
  • City, State:   Mechanicsburg, PA
  • Quick Stats:  29 cars, Heat 4th (4), A-main 3rd (1)
 

DATE:  June 22, 2024

  • Class:  410 Sprint Cars
  • Track:  Port Royal Speedway
  • City, State:   Port Royal, PA
  • Quick Stats:  28 cars, Qualifying 26th, Heat 9th (9), B-main 5th (8), A-main 23rd (23)

 

SO CLOSE

Friday night Newlin returned to the seat of the Mansberger Motorsports 358 sprint car for his 5th race of the year in the No.21m.  After starting the season with a runner-up finish, the team has battled bad draws, incidents, and handling issues as they have worked to get back to racing at the front of the pack.

Newlin kicked off the night by claiming a 4th place finish in his heat race, which was all he needed to put his team in the redraw.  

For a change, luck worked in Newlin’s favor and put him on the pole for the 25-lap Summer Series main event.

From the drop of the green, Newlin found himself in 2nd and chasing leader Adam Carberry.  Numerous times throughout the event the Millerstown, PA native pressured the leader but it seemed each time he was about to strike, the caution lights would come on.

Newlin tried a final charge in the closing laps but jumped the cushion and packed his right side wheels with mud.  Doug Hammaker took advantage of the opportunity to slip by, dropping Newlin to a 3rd-place finish.

“Those cautions sure didn’t help us tonight.  Seemed like every time I would catch Adam (Carberry) and be ready to challenge for the lead the yellow would come out.”, Newlin said of the podium run.

“I could catch him (Carberry) on entry but he was a little better off the corner than I was.  After the late caution, I knew I didn’t have many laps left, so I went to the cushion to try to build up some momentum for one last shot but that bit me.  I got over the cushion and packed some mud in the wheel.  That gave Doug (Hammaker) the chance to get under me.”

“I have to give a shout-out to my daughter for pulling the pole in the redraw.  We haven’t had much luck pulling pills this year, so it was nice to have a little luck for a change!”

DIALING IT IN

Newlin made his second appearance of the season and second in a row with his family-owned 410 sprint car at Port Royal Speedway Saturday night.

In his debut the week before, Newlin experienced electrical or ignition issues that hampered his efforts to begin to build a notebook for the Ron’s RV Sales, Butler Hill Maple Farm, Tuscarora Roofing, Dillman Hauling No.11z.

Although the team thought they had found the issue from the previous week, Newlin’s night got off to a tough start when the issue resurfaced.   As a result, he ranked 26th after qualifying and finished 9th in his heat. 

In the B-main things began to turn around.  Newlin charged from 8th to 5th by lap two and survived a restart after a caution to claim a transfer spot and put his bright green No.11z in its first A-main of the season.

Newlin exited the feature event after just seven laps when the problem returned.  He was credited with a 23rd-place finish.

“The caution in the B-main probably saved me.  The car started having issues again but it settled down during the caution and then ran well after that.”, Newlin commented.

“Unfortunately it started happening again early in the A-main.  We will get it figured out in the shop this week.”

UP NEXT

This weekend Newlin will climb back into the seat of the Mansberger Motorsports No.21m 358 sprint car Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway.

Newlin said the team will sit out of the upcoming Pennsylvania 410 Sprint Speedweek.

“We’re not equipped for time trial shows right now.  The engine we’re running is down on horsepower compared to most of these guys.  We have to be smart about when and where we race to get the most laps to develop our notebook and our program.”, Newlin shared.

Newlin Battles Back at Williams Grove After Early Contact

Mechanicsburg, PA – June 4, 2024

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.

QUICK RESULTS

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)

 

COSTLY CONTACT

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.

UP NEXT

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

Zach Newlin’s Strong Showing Nets 2nd Place Finish at Williams Grove Speedway

Mechanicsburg, PA – March 30, 2024

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Mgmt

Photo Credit:  Derick Kriner Photography

Zach Newlin has been waiting patiently to kick off his 2024 sprint car season.  On a chilly and very windy Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway, his season finally got rolling, and he made it worth the wait.

QUICK RESULTS

DATE:  March 29, 2024

  • Class:  358 Sprint Cars
  • Track:  Williams Grove Speedway
  • City, State:   Mechanicsburg, PA
  • Quick Stats:  27 cars, Heat 3rd (1), A-main 2nd (6)

 

A BATTLE FROM BEGINNING TO END

Newlin’s evening got off on the right foot with a pill draw that put him on the pole for the 3rd heat.  The top six from each of the three heats would transfer, with the top four from each going to the redraw.

The start of the heat race appeared to be a bit uneven but race officials let it stand.  Newlin slipped back two spots on the opening lap.  He held on to that spot to the end to put the Mansberger Motorsports team into the redraw.

The redraw put Newlin outside row three for the start of the 20-lap A-main.  On the drop of the green, the Millerstown (PA) native charged to the outside off of turn four and carried the momentum into 3rd place by the end of the opening lap.

On lap six 2nd place Justin Foster suffered mechanical issues and dropped out of contention, handing the runner-up spot to Newlin.  

Newlin hounded leader Matt Findley for the next five laps before powering by, once again using the high side of the speedway off turn four.  Findley fought back, sliding back into the top spot one lap later.

With five laps remaining, Dylan Norris entered the fray making it a three-car battle for the top spot.  Newlin was briefly shuffled back to 3rd but when the checkered flag fell he was the runner-up behind Norris in the highly competitive and entertaining season-opening feature for the 358 sprint cars.

“For our first night out this year, we weren’t terrible.  A couple of small mistakes cost me.”, Newlin commented after the good showing.  “Once we get the car dialed in a little, we should only get better.”

UP NEXT

The next race for Newlin hasn’t been nailed down just yet.  He hopes to make his season 410 debut in his family-owned 11z in April.  Follow Zach Newlin Racing on Facebook or Zach Daddy Racing on X (formerly Twitter) for the latest schedule updates when the decisions are made!

Newlin Building the Foundation for Future 410 Sprint Car Success in Central PA

Get Your Tickets Now:  Team’s Annual Cash Bingo Event Fast Approaching

Millerstown, PA – January 17, 2023

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Mgmt

Zach Newlin spent most of the 2023 season working to pull his own 410 sprint car team together.  It proved to take longer than hoped but the team did manage to make it to the track three times late in the season.  

The preparation has continued throughout this offseason, and while Newlin has limited resources, he has been working hard to build depth where he can and fans should expect to see more of Newlin in his 410 sprint car in 2024.

There are plenty of other updates from the Zach Newlin Racing camp to share this winter too.

YOU WIN, THEY WIN!

Racers don’t often get the opportunity to hang out and have fun with their fans, family, and friends.  Every winter, Zach Newlin and the entire Newlin Racing family try to remedy that by hosting a fun night 

The night features bingo with cash prizes, door prizes, 50/50 drawings, a Chinese auction, and tear-off tickets.

Not only is it a fun night of games, but the annual event helps Newlin Racing support some of the costs of their program.

Everyone knows how expensive racing is these days.  It doesn’t matter if you are running a go-kart like Caleb Newlin or a full-blown sprint car like his father, Zach Newlin, it takes funding to get to the track.  

The entire event is a win for fans and a win for Newlin Racing.  Come out and support a long-time Central Pennsylvania racing family.

The event will be held at the Millerstown (PA) Moose on Saturday, January 27th.  Doors open at noon with festivities kicking off at 1pm.

Advance tickets are $25.  Only 300 tickets will be sold.  If available, tickets will be $30 at the door.  Interested fans can message Newlin Racing or Zach Newlin Racing on Facebook to get tickets.

Tickets are also available at the Millerstown Moose, Ron’s RV Sales in Mifflintown, and The Podium Awards in Newport.

Fans can find all the latest information on the ‘Newlin Racing Cash Bingo’ event on the Newlin Racing Facebook page.

358 PLANS

Before we get into Newlin’s 410 sprint car plans for 2024, we want to fill fans in on another part of his schedule.

‘Zach Daddy’ as he is known to his fans, will return to the seat of Dan Mansberger’s No.21m 358 sprint car to compete in all the Williams Grove Speedway dates for the division. 

The pairing had a solid season in 2023, capturing one victory and finishing 6th in the season point standings at ‘The Grove’.

We enjoy running with Dan, so I’m really happy to be back in his car again.”, Newlin said.

This will be our 4th year together.  We struggled with mechanical issues our first couple of years but last year we overcame that.  We were competitive almost every week in 2023.  I’m looking forward to 2024.  I think we can run up front and get Dan back to victory lane again.

410 PLANS

Last season, Newlin was aiming to get his own family-owned 11z team put together with a 410 bullet under the hood by early summer but parts delays, funding and other issues kept delaying his debut.  The team did manage three starts before the season closed, one of them unfortunately ending early with a part failure in hot laps.

In 2024, Newlin is set to race the Ron’s RV Sales, Butler Hill Maple Farm, Tuscarora Roofing Co., Dillman Hauling, Precision Auto Repair Services, Christine Booker Realtor, Newlin Bar Service No.11z on a regular basis from the start of the season. 

That said, Newlin will need to be selective when and where he competes to ensure he makes the most of his equipment and gives himself the best chance to build on what he has.  

With only their smaller engine available, ZNR’s schedule options will be a bit limited.  As of now, plans are to compete at BAPS Motor Speedway’s 410 sprint car shows, plus some additional mid-summer dates at Port Royal Speedway.  Newlin is hoping the team’s other engine is done soon so the team will be able to add more dates to their schedule.

This will be a learning and building year for us, so our main goals are just to be at the track as much as we are able and get as many laps as we can.“, Newlin commented.  We are also going to make sure we promote our partners.  We wouldn’t be able to do this without them.  I can’t thank those folks enough.  Last year was disappointing because we wanted to race more but things we couldn’t control kept us from doing that.  

“Our partners have stayed behind us and continued to believe in what we are trying to build, so we are going to make sure to take care of them.

PARTNERS ARE FAMILY

Speaking of marketing partners, Newlin will welcome back several key supporters in 2024.

Ron’s RV Sales of Mifflintown is back as a primary partner.  Ron’s RV Sales is a retirement hobby that has become a passion.

Zach Newlin Derailed en Route To Top Ten Finish

Plans for More 410 Sprint Car Races in the Works

Mechancisburg, PA – September 25, 2023

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Mgmt

Zach Newlin and the Mansberger Motorsports team have been working hard to solve some balance issues with the No.21m over the past month.  The team was running consistently inside the top ten and picked up one victory this summer, but has since been battling to get back to that level of consistency.

Friday night, the team rolled into Williams Grove Speedway for the final 358 sprint car race of the 2023 season at the legendary Pennsylvania oval.

 

QUICK RESULTS

DATE:  9/15/23

  • Event:  Final 358 Sprint Car Points Race of 2023
  • Track:  Williams Grove Speedway
  • City, State:   Mechanicsburg, PA
  • Quick Stats:  26 cars, Heat 2nd (5), A-Main 12th (6)

 

DIGGIN' EARLY

Newlin came out of the box, ready to be a factor Friday night.  Heat lineups were set using a handicapping format, which put the Millerstown, PA driver 5th to take the green.

As he is known to fans, Zach Daddy moved forward immediately and was holding down the runner-spot by lap three.  With the feature set to be lined up ‘heads up’ based on heat race finishes, Newlin went after leader Logan Rumsey but fell 0.850 seconds short at the finish line.

 

WELL, THAT'S UNFORTUNATE

Newlin started outside row three for the 20-lap main event and settled into the 6th spot in the early going.

As the race neared the midpoint, Newlin slipped to 8th but remained in a battle to climb further into the top ten.  Unfortunately, as he entered turn one on lap ten, contact with a competitor going for the same piece of real estate turned Newlin’s No.21m around.

With no damage, Newlin restarted at the rear of the field and made the most of the remaining ten laps, charging his way back to a 12th place finish, nearly completing a full recovery from the incident.

We had a good night going.  Hate that happened in the middle of the race.  I was committed to my line.  Just a racing deal.“, Newlin said.  

We have been battling a tight condition and tonight we were too free.  We’ll keep working on it and find the balance we need.

Newlin and the Mansberger Motorsports team, who compiled five top-ten finishes and one win along the way, finished 6th in the Williams Grove Speedway 358 sprint car championship standings for the 2023 season.

I really want to thank Dan (Mansberger) for the opportunity to drive his car.  We got him back to victory lane this year and had a pretty good season.  Hoping we can come back next year with him and have an even better year.“, Newlin commented.

 

UP NEXT

Newlin’s 358 sprint car season may be over, but he still expects to squeeze in a couple more 410 sprint car races in his family’s familiar No.11z before the end of the year.

Newlin Makes Progress Late at Grove for Mansberger Motorsports

Mechancisburg, PA – September 18, 2023

Zach Newlin returned to the seat of the Mansberger Motorsports No.21m 358 sprint car Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway for the annual Match Race, which offers an increased purse throughout the field.

The team was not only looking to claim some of the cash that was on the line, they were hoping to start a new streak of top ten finishes after losing their previous streak of five with a tough outing on September 1st.

 

QUICK RESULTS

  • Date:  9/15/23
  • Event:  Match Race
  • Track:  Williams Grove Speedway
  • City, State:   Mechanicsburg, PA
  • Quick Stats:  28 cars, Heat 8th (8), A-Main 14th (19)

 

TOUGH HOLE TO DIG OUT OF

Heat race lineups for the 28 358 sprint cars on hand were set using a handicapping format, which put Newlin 8th on the grid for the first heat of the night.  The top six finishers would transfer directly to the night’s main event, but the heavy, narrow track wasn’t very conducive for passing.  The Millerstown, PA driver finished where he started, 8th, and moved on to the B-main for another shot.

In the 10-lap B-main, Newlin started 4th and went on the charge from the drop of the green.  By lap two, he snagged the runner-up spot.  On lap five, he took the lead away from Nat Tuckey.  He never looked back and took the win by over four seconds.

The 25-lap Match Race A-main kicked off with Newlin in the 19th starting spot.  Once again, he started his forward progress from the outset.

Six laps in, Newlin was up to 15th.  On lap eleven, he moved into 14th.  The progress stalled there and Newlin finished 14th.

We weren’t horrible but the car was a little too tight.  We need to figure that out.“, Newlin said.  

Newlin was alluding to a setup issue that the team has been battling the last few races.  Something has changed on the car since their hot streak over the summer and it has been a bit tricky to zero in on exactly what is causing the handling issues.

We’re hoping to be back here next Friday night and give it another shot.“, Newlin concluded.

 

UP NEXT

Newlin will tentatively return to Williams Grove Speedway Friday, September 22nd for the final 358 sprint car race of the 2023 season.

Stay tuned to Zach Newlin Racing’s social media outlets listed below or to Addicted2DirtPR.com/Events for the latest schedule information.

TRIVIA QUESTION

The answer to our last trivia question is Zach accumulated [D] More than 100 top ten finishes in the 305 sprint car division during the 2016-2019 seasons!  Quite an impressive statistic!

Zach Newlin Makes 410 Sprint Car Return at BAPS Motor Speedway

Along With 358 Sprint Duties, More 410 Races Planned Before Year Ends

York Haven, PA – August 29, 2023

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Mgmt

Photo Credit:  Jeremy Zarfos Photography

Zach Newlin has dabbled in 410 sprint cars over the last few seasons in the seat of a few different cars.  The opportunities came his way after several highly successful seasons at the wheel of his family’s 305 sprint car, follow by a successful debut season when the team moved up to the 358 sprint car division.

With an appetite that now had a taste for 410 sprint car competition, late in 2023 Newlin made the decision to resurrect the familiar 11z, but this time it would have a 410 engine under the hood.  

Sunday night the team took the first on-track step in that journey.

 

QUICK RESULTS

  • Date:  8/27/23
  • Event:  Capitol Renegade Clash
  • Track:  BAPS Motor Speedway
  • City, State:   York Haven, PA
  • Quick Stats:  23 cars, Qualifying 7th in Group 3, Heat 7th (7), A-main 17th (21)

 

WORKING OUT THE KINKS

Newlin was forced to dive right in Sunday night.  Group time trials set the heat lineups for the 23-car field, so his first laps in the Ron’s RV Sales, Butler Hill Maple Farm, Tuscarora Roofing Co., Dillman Hauling, FIT Transportation, Grove Financial & Associates, Precision Auto Repair Services, Snyders Knob, Christine Booker Realtor, Newlin Bar Service No.11z were on the clock.

After timing 7th quick in group 3, Newlin started and finished 7th in heat three as well.  

Newlin took what he learned from those laps, discussed the information with brother Lance Newlin, and the pair made adjustments for the 30-lap finale.  It made a difference.  He was able to climb as high as 16th during the first half of the race and ultimately finished 17th.

It’s good to be back at the track with the family team.  We have been working on building this RPM car all year as finances allowed.  The final piece was the engine.  We didn’t even get a chance to come out and test, so tonight was like a test for us.“, Newlin said.

It took some time to get comfortable tonight but we definitely made a lot of progress by the end of the night.  There are a couple components I want to change before we race again.  Hopefully we can use the rest of this year to shake the car down so we have something solid to start 2024 with.

 

UP NEXT

Zach will be back in 358 sprint car action in the Mansberger Motorsports No. 21m at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday, September 1st looking to continue their climb up the season point standings at the track.  Newlin currently sits 5th on that list.

While Newlin is still considering possibly racing at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night September 2nd, his next 410 sprint car race will likely be Port Royal Speedway’s Labor Day Classic.

Newlin says his tentative 410 sprint car schedule includes the remaining races at BAPS Motor Speedway and possibly a couple other races.  

TRIVIA QUESTION

The answer to our last trivia question is Zach won the Hard Charger Award at Port Royal Speedway’s Labor Day Classic in 2020 and repeated the feat in 2021!

Now, on to this week’s question!  In 305 sprint car competition, how many top ten finishes did Zach accumulate over the 2016-2019 seasons?  

A.  Between 50-60

B.  Between 65-75

C.  Between 80-90

D.  More than 100

The answer in the next press release!

Newlin Extends String of Top Ten Finishes to Five

Team Will Return to Williams Grove September 1st

Mechanicsburg, PA – August 22, 2023

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Mgmt

Photo Credit:  Jeremy Zarfos Photography

In case you haven’t noticed, Zach Newlin has been a consistent contender this summer in 358 sprint car competition.

It started with a hard charger award in early May.  A few weeks later there was a podium finish.  That was followed by a 23rd to 6th drive at BAPS Motor Speedway.  In July, he reached victory lane at Williams Grove Speedway.

Now the calendar has turned to August and Newlin is still performing.  Friday night he scored two top ten finishes in two feature events, and he had to get his elbows up to get it done.

 

  • Date:  8/18/23
  • Track:  Williams Grove Speedway
  • City, State:   Mechanicsburg, PA
  • 8/4 Makeup Summer Series Feature:  A-main 8th (19)
  • Quick Stats:  30 cars, Heat 3rd (7), A-main 6th (9)

 

Let's Try This Again

Back on August 4th, Newlin had a rough qualifying night that saw him unable to dig out of an early hole that stemmed from an unlucky pill draw.  Before the feature could be run that night, the rain came.  Now, two weeks later, that feature rolled to the green to kick off the night at Williams Grove Speedway with the Millerstown, PA wheelman in the 19th starting spot.

When the green flag dropped on the 25-lap 358 Sprint Car Summer Series makeup feature, Newlin was ready to put the qualifying challenges of two weeks prior in the rear view mirror.

In the early going he reached 14th but was still mired there at the halfway point.  That’s when the Manchester Hydraulics, Marlow’s Metal Fabrication, Safety Kleen, Lee Chassis Repair & Components, Will’s Lawncare, Mansberger Motorsports No.21m came alive.

Newlin navigated his way to 12th on lap fourteen, then cracked the top ten on lap sixteen.  One lap later he climbed to 8th.  He held on to finish there, completing a solid recovery with a strong run.

 

Consistency Is Key

Thirty teams were on hand for the regular show Friday night at Williams Grove, which set heat lineups by the track’s handicapping system and the feature lineup was ‘heads up’ based on the heat race finishes.

Newlin started 7th in the third and final heat race of the evening.  He made quick work of the cars directly in front of him, racing into 5th on the opening lap.  He continued his push, claiming 4th on the following circuit and eventually 3rd on lap seven.  He pulled even with Justin Foster coming to the checkered flag but fell 0.030 seconds short of a runner-up finish.

The heat race charge provided Newlin with the 9th starting spot for the 20-lap A-main.  On the initial start he slipped back a couple spots but recovered within two trips around the legendary Mechanicsburg, PA half-mile. 

Once he found his rhythm, Newlin began to chip away toward the top five.  He took the 8th spot on lap three, then 7th the next time around.  A few laps later he moved into 6th and began his pursuit of Kody Hartlaub for a spot in the top five.

It never materialized and Newlin closed out the night with a 6th place finish.  The productive night brought his streak of top ten finishes to five, including a win in late July in the Manchester Hydraulics, Marlow’s Metal Fabrication, Safety Kleen, Lee Chassis Repair & Components, Will’s Lawncare, Mansberger Motorsports No.21m.

“We haven’t been out of the top ten anywhere we have gone with this car since May 5th, and that was an 11th place finish.“, Newlin said.  “We passed a lot of cars tonight.  We went forward every time we hit the track.  Almost had second in our heat from seventh.”

“It feels good to have Dan’s (Mansberger) car running the way it should be.  We struggled with odd issues and bad luck the last couple years, so it’s good to finally have things going our way and showing what we are capable of.  You have to be consistent and be there first, then the wins will come.  We have one so far and hopefully we can get a couple more before the season ends.

 

Up Next

Zach and the Mansberger Motorsports team will return to Williams Grove Speedway on Friday, September 1st looking to continue their climb up the season point standings at the track.  Newlin currently sits 5th on that list.

 

Season Stats

8 races, 1 wins, 2 top 5’s, 5 top 10’s, 6 top 15’s

 

Trivia Question

The answer to our last trivia question is Zach won the Williams Grove Speedway 358 sprint car Rookie of the Year award in 2020!

Now, on to this week’s question!  Did you know Zach has won the Hard Charger Award two time at Port Royal Speedway’s 410 Sprint Car Labor Day Classic?  What years did he win that award?

Zach Newlin Wins a Thriller at Williams Grove

Will Go For Back-to-Back Wins This Friday at Williams Grove Speedway

Mechanicsburg, PA – July 31, 2023

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Mgmt

Photo Credit:  Jeremy Zarfos Photography

Zach Daddy is back.  Back in victory lane.

Zach Newlin knows how to win races.  He won a ton of them in his 305 sprint car years and he won in his first year in a 358 sprint car back in 2020.

Since then, it’s been a tough stretch for Newlin.  He has not found victory lane while running a limited 358 sprint car schedule combined with some 410 sprint car outings in a few different cars.  A mix of bad luck, mechanical issues and some good runs have made up the past couple seasons.  None of those nights was quite good enough to get himself or his team on the front stretch after the race though.

Friday night Newlin reminded everyone he hasn’t forgotten how to wheel a sprint car to victory lane.  He came out on top after a thrilling battle with Kody Hartlaub in the closing laps at Williams Grove Speedway.

 

  • Date:  7/28/23
  • Event:  358 Summer Series
  • Track:  Williams Grove Speedway
  • City, State:   Mechanicsburg, PA
  • Quick Stats:  25 cars, Heat 2nd (2), A-main 1st (3)

 

Up On the Wheel Late

Newlin’s night started off with a decent pill draw that put him on the front row for his heat race.  A poor start dropped him back to 3rd on the opening circuit and by mid-race he found himself nearly a second back from the runner up spot.  He continued to grind and close the gap, finally reclaiming the 2nd spot on the final lap.

I have to give a big thanks to Dereck Locke’s son.  He pulled my pill for me tonight and put me on the front row of that heat.“, Newlin shared with a grin.  

The redraw gave Newlin and the Manchester Hydraulics, Marlow’s Metal Fabrication, Safety Kleen, Lee Chassis Repair & Components, Will’s Lawncare, Mansberger Motorsports No.21m the inside of the second row to start the Summer Series 25-lap feature event.

Newlin got bottled up a bit in traffic on the initial start of the A-main and slipped back to 5th.  He went to work on 4th place Cody Phillips and after a few unsuccessful attempts to slip by on the low side, changed lanes and wrestled the spot away from Phillips using the high side in turn three.

A few laps later he used the high side again off turn two to take 3rd away from Jayden Wolf.  With a car that was clearly on point Friday night, Newlin continued his march forward.  He moved into 2nd on lap nine.

One lap later Newlin took command of the race, snatching the lead away from Chris Frank.  He went on to survive a restart and build a comfortable lead.  Meanwhile, Kody Hartlaub was marching forward as well.  The 7th place starter moved into the runner up spot with ten laps remaining and set his crosshairs on Newlin’s No.21m.

Hartlaub caught Newlin with a power move going into turn one to start lap 21.  Newlin battled back, diving under Hartlaub into turn three and had regained the lead before the line.  The pair ran wheel to wheel and nose to tail, dicing through lapped traffic over the remaining laps. 

Newlin held on for his second career 358 sprint car victory by a mere 0.741 seconds.

I looked up at the board and saw Kody was in second.  I knew he was really good.  I just got too complacent with the lead and slowed my pace too much. I had the wing in the trunk to get off the corner but that’s not good for running the cushion, so it was a handful.“, Newlin said. 

He (Hartlaub) certainly woke me up.  He raced me clean I don’t know if I raced him clean on the front stretch but it’s been a few years since we were here (in victory lane) so I wasn’t going to give up easily.

It feels good to be back here in victory lane.  It’s been way too long.  Getting Dan (Mansberger) a win has been a goal of mine and we finally did it.

Up Next

Zach and the Mansberger Motorsports team will return to Williams Grove Speedway on Friday, August 4th looking to go back-to-back in another 358 Summer Series race.

Newlin has quietly been working to put his family’s team back together to compete in the 410 sprint car ranks.  That work is about to pay off.  He expects to make the 410 debut for the familiar 11z during the month of August!  Be sure to follow Zach’s social media outlets listed below for the latest information about when and where that debut will happen!

Fans will see a lot more of Newlin in 2024.  He plans to compete in both the 21m (358) and 11z (410) going forward into next season.  

 

Season Stats

6 races, 1 wins, 2 top 5’s, 3 top 10’s, 4 top 15’s

 

Trivia Question

The answer to our last trivia question is Zach’s racing-related business is Newlin Bar Service!  The business offers a full Torsion Bar Dyno service to sprint car, midget/lightning sprint and micro sprint team.  New Bar Service also carries a full line of new and used torsion bars for all your sprint car, midget and micro needs!

Now, on to this week’s question!  What year did Zach win the 358 sprint car Rookie of the Year Award at Williams Grove Speedway?

The answer in the next press release!

Zach Newlin Puts on Thrilling Show at BAPS Motor Speedway

Next Up:  358 Summer Series event at Williams Grove Speedway

Mechanicsburg, PA – May 29, 2023

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Mgmt

Photo Credit:  Derick Kriner Photography

Zach Newlin may not have won the Dirty 30 show at BAPS on Saturday night, but he certainly gave the fans a show.

It was a night of challenges that on paper didn’t look like it was shaping up to be a success story, but Zach Daddy picked off the competition lap after lap as he charged from the back of the field in the A-main to nearly take home a top five finish.

 

  • Date:  5/27/23
  • Event:  358 Summer Series Dirty 30
  • Track:  BAPS Motor Speedway
  • City, State:   York Haven, PA
  • Quick Stats:  29 cars, Qualifying 6th Group 1, Heat DNS, B-main 5th (10), A-main 6th (23)

Early Troubles

Newlin and the Manchester Hydraulics, Marlow’s Metal Fabrication, Safety Kleen, Lee Chassis Repair & Components, Will’s Lawncare, Mansberger Motorsports No.21m were part of a 29 car field that signed in for BAPS Motor Speedway’s Dirty 30 race, an annual event for the 358 sprint cars that offers a well above average purse for the division.

Group timed hot laps set the heat lineups for the night, which put Newlin outside the 3rd row in heat number three.  As the Millerstown, PA native rolled onto the speedway for the qualifying race, something was amiss on the Mansberger Motorsports No.21m and he returned pit-side.

The diagnosis, a disconnected spark plug wire.  It was too late however and Newlin missed his heat race.

Relegated to a 10th starting spot in the B-main, Newlin raced his way in by advancing to a 5th place finish.

 

The Comeback

Newlin had partially recovered his evening by turning a missed heat race into a main event start, but he wasn’t done yet.

Zach Daddy, as he is known to fans, started 23rd after squeaking in through the B-main.  It didn’t take long for fans to see Newlin had a far better car than his starting spot might have suggested.

By lap five Newlin had already surged forward into the 14th position.  From there on he chipped away, claiming another spot every couple laps.  Fans watched the battle at the front of the field but had one eye on Newlin as he sliced through traffic.

Newlin cracked the top ten with a big move, 11th to 8th on lap fourteen.  As the race entered its final five laps, Newlin moved into 6th after being stalled in 7th for ten circuits.  He appeared to need one more trip around to claim a top five finish but the checkered flag ended the impressive run with a 6th place finish.

We are finally figuring this thing out.  That’s the best we have had the car since I’ve been in the seat.  I think these new tires have actually helped me feel more comfortable.“, Newlin said, referring to the new line of Hoosier sprint car tires that teams have had to switch to this season.

It has been noticeable in recent outings that Newlin, along with brother Lance on the wrenches of the Mansberger ride, have made strides.  It has showed in their performance.  Newlin was the hard charger at Williams Grove earlier in the month, then backed that up with a podium finish there just a week ago.

 

Appreciation

The Dirty 30 has become an annual event nearly every 358 sprint car team circles on their calendar. 

I want to thank Bill Devine and everyone who puts this event on.  It’s a great race for the 358 division.  I really enjoy running it and the team appreciates the opportunity to race for money that makes a real difference to our season.“, Newlin commented.

 

Up Next

Zach and the Mansberger Motorsports team will return to Williams Grove Speedway on June 9th for a 358 Summer Series race.

 

Season Stats

5 races, 0 wins, 1 top 5’s, 2 top 10’s, 3 top 15’s

 

Trivia Question

The answer to our last trivia question is Newlin was dubbed ‘Zach Daddy’ by BAPS Motor Speedway announcer Dave Hare!  Look for a future story from Addicted2Dirt PR with more details on the backstory of the notable nickname!

Now, on to this week’s question!  What is the name of Zach Newlin’s racing-related business?

The answer in the next press release!

Most importantly, tell them WHY you patronized them and thank them for being involved in racing!
