Another Top Ten For Sammons and Team


BORDENTOWN, NJ: On April 18th, Davey Sammons and his John Chemidlin Special, Pioneer Pole Buildings No. 747 team competed at Port Royal Speedway. This event was a tune-up show for this coming weekends All Star Circuit of Champion Bob Weikert Memorial event.

Heat races were lined up by using group time trials. Each racer took part in single car two lap time trials, but were only timing against the cars in their heat race.

Sammons timed second quick during his group time trail laps to Greg Hodnett. The four fastest cars were inverted for the start of the heat races, placing Sammons in the 3rd starting position. At the start Sammons made a pass on Rick Lafferty to move into second place. Sammons finished third in his heat race after loosing a position to Greg Hodnett. Dave Ely picked up the victory from the pole position.

Sammons' third place finish lined him up 10th for the start of the A-Main. Sammons got an extremely good start making an inside move in turns 3 & 4 to pass Brent Marks, Dave Blaney and Dave Ely. Sammons would work his way up into the 5th position. On a late race restart with only 2 laps remaining, Sammons used the outside to get around the lapped car of Dave Hahn in turns 1 & 2. Entering turn 3 the lap car would nearly run into Sammons' left rear tire, pulling the air off of his wing and giving Sammons a push into the center of the turn. This left the door open for Brent Marks who took full advantage of the opportunity, dropping Sammons into the 6th position.

With four consecutive top 10 finishes, Davey and team hope to carry their momentum into this Weekend's $15,000 to win Bob Weikert Memorial at Port Royal Speedway.

Sammons and Shreiner Confident - 4/11/15-4/12/15


BORDENTOWN, NJ: April 11th/12th brought two more strong top ten finsihes for Davey Sammons. Sammons and his team competed with the Pioneer Pole Buildings John Chemidlin Special No. 747 at Port Royal and Susquehanna Speedway. 

On Saturday night, Davey nearly picked up his first heat race win of the season at Port Royal. Mike Wagner made a last lap move to take home the victory. Davey lined up in the 5th position for the feature event. After a bad first few laps, Sammons had fallen to 11th position. As the race continued, Sammons continued to improve. Advancing back into the 7th position when a caution came out on lap 20. On the restart, Sammons made a move to the inside of Mike Wagner for the 6th position. Two laps later Wagner would use the same low line to make the pass back on Sammons. 

On Sunday night at Susquehanna Speedway, Davey started second in his heat race, jumping into the lead over Brett Marks on the start and would lead the field to a caution at about halfway. On the restart, Davey suffered a broken left front shock. After getting passed by Marks and Ryan Smith, he was able to hold onto 3rd place. This would line Davey up 8th for the feature event. On the original start, Davey jumped into the 5th position only for a red flag to be displayed as the leaders came past the flag stand for a car flipping in the rear of the field. The lap would not count and revert back to the original start. The second start was nothing like the first for Sammons who fell to the 9th position. The race would run non-stop after the second original start. Davey battled with Steve Buckwalter for most of the race and was able to get past Dave Ely in lapped traffic to bring home an 8th place finish.

Sammons and Shreiner were happy with their 7th and 8th place finishes as they felt their car was strong from the halfway point in both events and were coming forward. The team hopes to improve some more and with a little luck thinks their first win is around the corner.
