Jack Lehner and Ryan Watt Speed to Last Chance Showdown Wins

OSWEGO, NY – October 6, 2018 – It took two Last Chance Showdowns, won by Jack Lehner and Ryan Watt, to set the final positions for the Billy Whittaker Cars 200. Jimmy Horton, Nick Webb, Rich Scagliotta, and Alan Johnson earned the rest of the available starting positions.

Jack Lehner rolls off from position thirty on Sunday, October 7. The no. 2 car looked strong as he outran veteran Jimmy Horton for the win. Ryan Watt had a strong showing as well, driving up from position 13 for the win in the second Last Chance Showdown and starts thirty-first in the Billy Whittaker Cars 200.

Jimmy Horton is a past NAPA Super DIRT Week Champion after taking the win in 1994. With experience, speed, and Halmar Racing equipment, he will be one to watch in the back of the pack. Nick Webb proved he has what it takes to run with the top drivers with a third-place finish that put him in thirty-fourth for Sunday’s finale.

Super DIRTcar Series regular Rich Scagliotta lead early in the second Last Chance Showdown, but he could not hold off Ryan Watt. Scagliotta starts thirty-third in the Billy Whittaker Cars 200.

Fan-favorite Alan Johnson scooped up the third and final transfer position in the second Last Chance Showdown.

Due to the postponed Pittsburgher 100, Tim McCredie will not be able to start the Billy Whittaker Cars 200. His absence results in a bump in position for those behind him on the starting field and Billy VanInwegen making the grid in thirty-ninth.

Meanwhile, during the evening race at Fulton Speedway, Mike Maresca won the Dirt Track Digest Win in Your In, putting him in forty-first position for the 200.

The Billy Whittaker Cars 200 rolls onto the Oswego Speedway tomorrow, Sunday, October 7.
