Spring Run, PA (April 6, 2024)- Carlisle, PA’s Jeremy Ott claimed a $400 payday, and his 31st overall Legends Victory, when he raced his way to Victory Lane at Path Valley Speedway, Saturday, in the East Coast Legend Series feature event. 

     Ott started fifth in the 27-car feature, and he quickly made his way to the front. There, he fought tooth and nail with Tanner Jones before grabbing the lead for good late in the going to claim the checkered flag.  Jones, who ran a strong race, slipped back in the waning laps to finish fifth. 

      Colton Friese ran near the front of the field all day and finished in the runner-up position, Steven Partin made the long tow from Peebles, Ohio, and raced his way to finish third after starting 11th. Logan Carbaugh had a good race and finished fourth. Jones rounded out the top-five.

       Mike Kelley raced his way to an impressive sixth-place finish, while defending champion, Devin Friese, finished seventh after starting 27th. Rick Hartwig put forth a strong effort to claim eighth, and Cory Phillips had a solid effort to take ninth. Scott Montgomery rounded out the top-10, matching his 10th-place effort the prior race at BAPS.

        Ott, Colton Friese and Carbaugh won the heat races, which awarded $25 to the winners.

        The race was marred by a lap-two accident when Tyler Kaylor’s throttle stuck wide open as he entered turn three. Kaylor slammed the outside retaining wall and rolled three times. Bree Kaylor, Tyler’s wife, indicated on her social media that Tyler suffered three fractured ribs and was discharged from the hospital at 2 a.m. Sunday.

2024 East Coast Legend Series Rules Updates

1. Feature Winners will receive an additional 10 points in 2024. Feature Winners will now receive 110 points. The difference in points between first and second is now 13 points. This does not alter how INEX points are awarded. In a case where show-up points are awarded, this point differential will not be applicable

2. In 2024, The East Coast Legend Series will reintroduce the Rookie Rule (with changes). For a Rookie's first FIVE events, he/she will be required to start at the rear of heat races ONLY. After the driver's respective heat race, the driver will then start in either the A/B Main in the qualified spot from the heat race. If the event has time trials/hot lap time trials, Rookies will start in the qualified position posted from time trials. Rookies will be required to have their rear bumpers painted or taped yellow from bumper tab to bumper tab or rear horn to rear horn, and the bumpers must remain yellow for the duration of the season. Rookie drivers are those with NO prior Legends experience or less than FIVE Legends events as a driver. After the completion of a Rookie's first FIVE events, the driver will not be required to adhere to the Rookie Rule UNLESS the Series race director feels it's warranted based on performance shown by driver.

3. In 2024, a driver will be allowed to miss/drop FOUR races. For example, if a driver does not attend four races, it will not count against him/her. If a driver attends all the races, then he/she will be allowed to drop their four worst finishes. If a driver does not attend one to three races, then those races will not count against said driver, and the driver will then be allowed to drop his/her worst finishes for other races until the race tally reaches four. This miss/drop procedure will be in effect through the Sept. 7 event at Lincoln Speedway. Following that event, drivers will have their misses/drops calculated, and the remainder of the points season will be run "heads up" points and no misses/drops will be allowed. The following tracks in 2024 will NOT BE ALLOWED to be used for a miss/drop: Natural Bridge, Roaring Knob and Hagerstown. If a driver chooses to run a Legends event outside of the East Coast Series on the same night that the East Coast Series has a race, then that driver will not be allowed to use that date as a miss/drop. If an event is canceled, the miss/drop procedure does not apply.
