Information and Results from Racing at Hiester's H.O. Raceway

2022-2023 Hiester's H.O. Raceway Modified Season in review.  The Modified season was strong, and well attended all season long as we averaged 20 Racers a night over the course of the 11 Race season. The season high for the Modified division came on the annual Night before Thanksgiving Race with 25 racers in attendance.  We had 6 different winners in the 11 Races held this year.  Claiming wins in the tough Modified division were: Shane Hiester (5), Andrew Cremer (1), Sheldon Hiester (2), Dakota Barlet (1), Peyton Kochel (1), and Mike Feltenberger (1).  We had our 4 special nights for the Mods with the White Plastic Body Night, Coupe Night, the annual 8-Lane Race for Blackie, and the annual Hall of Fame Night before Thanksgiving Race.  We had 46 drivers partake in the Modified division this season, with 5 drivers having perfect attendance so coincidentally they were the Top 5 in points.  The Top 5 were 1-Shane Hiester, 2-Sheldon Hiester, 3-Mark Williams, 4-Tommy Hiester, and 5-Elmer Santiago.  Elmer Santiago started the season off on the slow side until his car owners got the car dialed in by the end of the season as he finished strong with 4 Top 10's in the last 5 races.  Tommy Hiester had some struggles during the year, but came home fourth in the season ending standings.  Tommy was 10 for 11 in Top 10 finishes with a season best of 3rd twice in the last 3 races.  Third was Mark Williams who finished with 10 for 11 in the Top 10 with 2nd as his best finish on the season.  Runner up went to Sheldon Hiester who got 2 feature wins on the season, and was also 10 for 11 on Top 10's throughout the season.  The Champ was Shane Hiester who won 5 features on the season, and was 11 for 11 in Top 10 finishes.  We had our normal veterans return for the Night before Thanksgiving race such as: Bill Waugh, Steve Windle, Bob Windle, Michael Windle, Joey Keesey Sr., and Scott Bender.  We also had quite a few new racers this year such as: Scottie Heilman, Andy Bixler, John Myszkowski, Dan Kramlich, Craig Hoffer, Mike Sheidy, Dave Comley, Brian Saylor, Kevin Kreiser, Jordan Hess, Ashley Hess, Jeff DeAngelis, Joey Keesey Jr., and Linda Lauver.  Scottie Heilman was the highest finisher of the newcomers with a 13th place finish.  We had some othe veterans make cameos on nights other than Hall of Fame Night with Jeff Columbo, Andrew Cremer, Tom Cremer, Peyton Kochel, Brian Sponagle, Dave Lauver, Matt Light, Louden Reimert, Randy Heilman, Bob Zelano, Joe Pieja, Bill Brenner, Rodney Koch, Jim LeVan, and Randy Haydt made a return to a weekly Modifed racer until his move came along.  We want to personally thank all of the racers, sponsors, and wives of the racers for all of the support this season after a 2 year layoff it was a pretty strong season.  Thanks to Jody Williams and Tianna Kramlich for helping with the book and computer if needed it is much appreciated by Sheldon and I to get a little bit of a break.  Thanks to all of the other racers that helped with the book, computer, and power when needed throughout the season.  Thanks to Debbie Hiester for allowing us to do this hobby we all love in the house, and helpimg watch the kids.  We had 18 people make over half of the Modified races this season which is a pretty good number, and a few others that were right there with 5 races.  Thanks to the sponsors: Strapped In, Esterly Motorsports, Little T's Speedway, Lightning Fast Speedway, Craig Hoffer Racing, Randy's Raceway, Mike Sheidy Heart Night, Chris Gambler Motorsports & Towing, Pioneer Pole Buildings, Bob Zelano Appliance Repair, and Hiester's H.O. Raceway.  We hope to see everyone back in October to kick off the 2023-2024 seaon at Hiester's H.O. Raceway.  

Tonight Thursday March 30, saw the 11th Race of the Season for our Sprint Car Division and the evening was sponsored by Mike Feltenberger and his Strapped-In Television Show, and we had 20 drivers in attendance for the event.  Taking the victory and the 2022-2023 Sprint Car Point Title was Shane Hiester, who won 5 races on the night.  Second place went to Sheldon Hiester who also won 5 races on the night.  Third spot went to Mike Feltenberger, who won 3 races on the and came up 4 points shy of his 1st career points title here at Hiester's H.O. Raceway.  Coming home fourth was Dakota Barlet who won 2 races on the night.  Rounding out the Top 5 in fifth was Dennis Barlet, who won 4 races on the night.  The rest of the field finished up like this: 6-Elmer Santiago (2 wins), 7-Scottie Heilman (1 win), 8-Mike Fitzgerald (1 win), 9-Brian Sponagle, 10-Tom Hiester,11-Jim LeVan, 12-Dave Lauver, 13-Kevin Sponagle, 14-Brian Saylor, 15-Dan Kramlich,16-Jazmin Santiago, 17-Andy Bixler, 18-John Myszkowski, 19-Craig Hoffer, and 20-Linda Lauver.  The final race of the season here tonight was a crazy one as we had a tight points battle for the championship coming into tonight as Mike Feltenberger trailed Shane Hiester by 2points, but with Shane picking up the win tonight, and Mike Feltenberger finishing 3rd that took his point lead for the final standings to a margin of 4 points at the end of the night. Mike gave it his all and his car was good, but at points seem to overdrive which came back to hurt him in the final rundown.  Sheldon Hiester finished third in the season long points and lost to Feltenberger by only 4 points as well.  So the Top 3 in points were very close throughout the whole season.  The track was fast tonight and the racing showed it with multiple cars going for the wins in races throughtout the whole night.  With Bear sponsoring the night tonight he did a Revenge draw for our starting positions, we rane lanes 2,3,4 & 6,7,8, we skipped Lane 5 and we also started onLane 8 and moved inside as to our normal procedure of starting on Lane 3 and moving out to lane 8.  Brian Sponagle and Kevin Sponagle made their 1st Sprint starts of the season tonight, and it was Kevin's 1st start here at the race track in 4 years or so and did well coming home 13th on the finishing order, and Brian drove to a strong 9th place finish.  Elmer Santiago turned in another good run tonight with his Sprint Car missing out on a Top 5 finish by only 5 track sections.  Scottie Heilman turned in a strong performance as well coming home 7th on the night which was his best finish all season.  Three people were victorious on Lane 2 tonight as this was the only time running that lane with the Sprints all season and it was quite challenging all night for the racers as tehy weren't used to what set up they needed to conquer the lane well.  Jim LeVan hit the Turn 4 Official tonight and was awarded the pot for that game that we play each week, and that was up to $8 or $9 i think so congrats to him forwinning that.  Mike Feltenberger also sponsored a Cash-Dash tonight as part of his sponsorship and winning that was Kevin Sponagle, followed by Mike Fitzgerald, and Dave Lauver.  We would like to thank Mike feltenberger for sponsoring tonight as he does every season by sponsoring the Last Race of the Season.  We here at Hiester's H.O. Raceway would liek to thank all of our Racers and Sponsors for their support this season as this year was one of our best and most fun seasons of racing here at Hiester's H.O. Raceway.  We had 50 different racers participate in events throughtout the whole season which is great.  We will update people with what we may do as a banquet for this season in the upcoming weeks once we figure out exactly what we want to do for a banquet this year.  Keep an eye on the Tom Hiester's H.O. Raceway Facebook Page over the summer as we will post stuff on there to keep everyone updated with what is going on here at Hiester's H.O. Raceway.  We will be back in October of 2023 to start our Next Season.  So until then to all of our racers, sponsors, and supporters have a safe and fun summer and see you back at the track in October for another fun season of racing here at Hiester's H.O.
