Newmanstown, PA -  Some "outside the box" thinking provided an opportunity for three drivers to pick up their first career victories at Lanco's Clyde Martin Memorial Speedway in Saturday season-ending Triangle Communications Championship Night event.
Day-long rain had many believing that the 2014 point championships at the Newmanstown, Pa. oval would be determined by Mother Nature. Borrowing a page from public education, however, proved to be a wise decision as Lanco officials initiated a two-hour delay for inclement weather, shifting the entire event's time schedule two hours later than originally planned. The rain moved out and the track crew went to work, prepping the banked oval and overcoming the odds to allow the season finale to be run (and completed) prior to the midnight curfew.
The wait was well worth it for first-time Lanco winners Rebecca LaMothe (600cc), Jas Hehnly (125cc), and Brett Estep (Sportsman). Picking up a double victory in the curtain-closing event was Kenny Miller III (270cc and 250cc Four-Stroke). The 2014 point championships were also decided on the race track, and not by the weather, thanks to the two-hour delay. Claiming this year's track titles were Heath Hehnly (600cc), Mike Rutherford (270cc), Darren Miller (125cc), Curtis R. Miller (Sportsman), and Dave Ravel (250cc Four-Stroke).
