Landon Price Scores Sunoco/Insinger Nationals Victory at BAPS

October 18, 2019

 

York Haven, Pa. (10/18/19) – Like any 19-year-old kid trying to make a name for himself in a division, Landon Price has experienced the ups and downs in racing.

          

One week, he shines with a top five run in PASS/IMCA 305 Sprint Car competition. The next, he struggles and a simple top-10 run is an undertaking.

          

Things have started to turn in a more consistent upward direction of late. Price has found speed, and it was on display Friday night at BAPS Motor Speedway, when he charged to the front and captured the 20-lap main event.

          

“We were getting the hang of it last year, and then this year, we had some stuff happen that put us behind the eight ball,” Price said. “Then toward the end of this season, we started getting the hang of it. 

          

“It was great. I was lucky to get one at Port Royal, and now we have two. I think we have one of the best teams in this whole deal now.”

          

Devin Adams started on the pole but drifted high on the start. That allowed Alex Bright to dive to the bottom of Turns 1 and 2 and grab the lead.

          

The pace was slowed on Lap 4, when Will Brunson spun on the fronstretch. Price, who started sixth on the grid, took third on the restart and started to close on Adams.

          

Bright pulled out to a .729-second lead by Lap 5.  Two laps later, Price slid Adams through the first and second corner to take over the second position.

          

Price closed the gap after a Lap 10 caution. On the restart, he tried to slide Bright, but the two made contact. Price didn’t clear the leader, but he drove by coming out of Turn 2 and had the lead going down the backstretch.

          

“I slid Nick Sweigart early in the race, and he crossed back underneath me, clean race, and I beat him into three and four,” Price said. “On the restart, I threw one on Alex, and I thought he was going to touch the brake and go back underneath me.

          

“He stayed wide open. I didn’t mean to race him like that, but I was going for the win. I respect what he has done in Midget racing. It wasn’t on purpose. I could’ve waited, but I was going for the win.”

          

That was the race. Price had the faster car and pulled out to a 1.535-second lead by the 15th circuit and cruised to the win over Bright, Adams, Doug Dodsen, and Nick Sweigart.

          

Dodsen and Adams were heat winners for the 19-car field. Zach Newlin finished eighth and was crowned the 305 Sprint Car champion at the speedway.

          

The Central Pa. Legends ran a non-winner’s main event, with Josh Schrum taking the victory in the 20-lap event. He shot into the lead on the first circuit after starting fourth on the grid. 

          

Schrum was harassed throughout the main event by Greg Burd and Chandler Pagnotta, but they couldn’t pull the trigger on a pass for the win. Burd settled for second, with Pagnotta, Zac Smith, and Aaron Updegraff completing the top five. 

          

Adam Campbell topped the field in the 20-lap 4-Cylinder main event, with Gene Wrightstone leading all 20 laps in the Penn-Mar Vintage Car A-Main.
