MECHANICSBURG, Pa. – Freddie Rahmer put together a consistent performance this season en route to his second Williams Grove Speedway Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint car track championship.

Rahmer wrapped up the honors during the 58th annual National Open earlier in the month.

Rahmer celebrated his second career track crown after also taking the title in 2017. He took the track championship aboard his father’s No. 51 machine, just as he did three years earlier.

Rahmer scored a total of three victories during the abbreviated Williams Grove season although he didn’t get his first win of the year until Aug. 21.

Other wins came on Sept. 4 and on Sept. 25.

Rahmer also walked off with the Williams Grove Diamond Series championship, just as he did in 2017.

The 2020 Diamond crown was also the second of Rahmer’s Williams Grove career.

Following Rahmer in the final 2020 Williams Grove Speedway 410 sprint point standings was one-time winner Brent Marks; Anthony Macri; one-time winner Danny Dietrich; and TJ Stutts.

Sixth through 10th went to Lucas Wolfe, Brian Montieth, Lance Dewease, Brock Zearfoss and Kyle Reinhardt.

Other winners during the season were Kyle Larson and David Gravel, each with two; and one-time winners Carson Macedo, Steve Buckwalter, Shane Stewart, Aaron Reutzel and Donny Schatz.

Special award winners in the 410 sprint division were Brent Shearer, Rookie of the Year; Chad Trout, Sportsmanship; Macri, Most Improved; and Rahmer, Mechanic of the Year.

Derek Locke of Carlisle recorded the Williams Grove Speedway HJ Towing & Recovery 358 sprint track title.

Locke scored fifty-percent of the 358 sprint races run during the season, taking three of six events.

The season was momentous for third generation driver Locke, who not only recorded his first track title in the division, but did it while winning his first career speedway events as well.

Locke took victories on July 31, Aug. 14 and Sept. 25.

Following Locke in the final point standings was two-time winner and five-time track titlist Kevin Nouse, Dylan Norris and Matt Findley/Scott Fisher, who tied for fourth.

Sixth through 10th in points went to Brett Wanner, Chris Frank, one-time winner Zach Newlin, Justin Foster and Steve Owings.

Zach Newlin, whose win on Sept. 4 was the first of his 358 sprint career at the track, was honored as Rookie of the Year.

Brett Wanner was honored for Sportsmanship.
