In the world of winged Sprint car racing, central Pennsylvania is hallowed ground, and on that sacred soil, Fred Rahmer is indisputably one of the sport’s greatest drivers of all time. On America’s toughest weekly Sprint circuit, Rahmer owns 500 career feature victories, which, due to Pennsylvania tracks’ common practice of handicapping big winners to mid-pack feature starts, means Rahmer passed a lot of cars in scoring each win. He was a top regional driver in Modifieds before switching to Sprint cars in 1984, winning immediately with the United Racing Club before switching to Pennsylvania’s 410 Sprint circuit, retiring in 2013. Rarely venturing very far from his home turf, Rahmer remains the all-time 410 Sprint win leader at Lincoln Speedway, ranks second all-time at Williams Grove Speedway, and third at Selinsgrove Speedway. Rahmer, of Salfordville, Pennsylvania, holds 21 track championships, 11 Pennsylvania Sprint Speedweek titles and five World of Outlaws victories, including the Williams Grove National Open. He was inducted into the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame in 2009.
