Somersetís Brian Walker celebrated his 39th birthday by winning his first career Pennsylvania Sprint Series 305 sprint car feature event. Walker started on the outside of the front row, beat polesitter Logan Wagner to the first turn, and those two ran first and second the entire way.

Two-time Lincoln winner Mark Watkins started ninth and moved into third by lap four. He ran there the rest of the way. Steve Whary and Mike Wagner II completed the top five.
