HAUDENSCHILD, SCOTT, DUNCAN, GARDNER, HENSEL JR., HEYDER, SHAW, & DANLEY WIN WCS’ BLOWOUT FEATURES
Saturday, September 26, 2015
By Mike Swanger
The 50th season of racing came to a close at Wayne County Speedway Saturday night with the running of the third annual Blowout presented by AAA. The night had some close racing action along with some wild moments. Millersburg’s Brad Haudenschild would start on the pole of the Fisher Performance Sprint feature but action would be slowed before lap two went in the books as Pete Grove got sideways in turn one and collected Sam Ashworth who flipped and ended his night while Kirk Jeffries ended on his side but would continue as would Jim Morris who stayed up right. Grove also went pitside. Haudenschild and his Kempthorn Auto Mall, Fire & Ice Pub and J&J Racing #38 would not be challenged as he posted his 7th win of the season. Racing for top five finishes was intense as Jimmy Colvin would take second from Jordan Harble on lap three while Jordan Ryan and Jamie and Chris Myers would wheel and deal for positioning lap after lap. During the last five laps, Colvin started to fade and on the last lap Harble was able to power past Colvin with Chris Myers right beside Harble and finished inches behind Harble. Colvin, who set fast time, ended 4th with Jordan Ryan taking fifth. TJ Michael flipped in hot laps/qualifying coming out of turn four and went into the front stretch catch fence as he was ok but his sprinter was not. Jimmy Colvin and Chris Myers won the $100 to win heat races.
The Lias Tire Super Late Model feature would have Mansfield’s Randy Scott and Alan Baker on the front row with Scott grabbing the lead and Mike Bores challenging Baker for second. On lap two, Baker and Bores touched in turn two and sent Baker into the back stretch retaining tires and he bounced off those and came back onto the track when Ryan Markham clipped the back of Baker’s car and sent Markham on a series of barrel rolls down the back stretch, completely destroying the #5m of Markham as he would climb out ok. Baker’s night was over also. As the race resumed, Scott would hold off Bores, who was able to get to the inside of Scott in turns one and two but could never get the lead. As the race wound down, Scott, who was filling in for his son Cody, started to pull away from Bores, and would put the Fultz Fabriaction, M R Trucking and Draime Engines #92 into victory lane, Randy’s first win in over 7 years. Rick Bond would finish third behind Bores as Jay Helton and Blaine Aber would fill out the top five. Bond and Brad Malcuit won the $100 to win heats as Markham was fast qualifier.
Charlie Duncan of Millersburg would go flag to flag for his fourth win in the Harriger Towing Rush Late Model feature. Driving the Hall’s Auto Sales, Kar Connection and Nationwide Vehicle Protection #240 would be hounded by Ryan Markham as Markham would go high in turns one and two and power his way to get along side Duncan down the back straightaway but the same line was not working for Markham in turns three and four as Duncan’s ride was working better on the low side of that corner. Behind the two leaders, Justin Chance was battling off Pa. drivers Colton Flinner and Corey McPherson for third with Matt Shipley behind that threesome. The last six circuits of the race would see Duncan pull away from quick qualifier Markham for the win as Chance held off Flinner for third with Shipley taking fifth from McPherson with two to go. Picking up the $50 to win heat races were Duncan and Chance.
With a multitude of cautions in the early part of the Aamco Transmissions Super Stock main, fifth starting Paul Holmes would find himself out front with Miamisburg’s Brandon Gardner in tow. Gardner would use the high line in turns one and two and get beside Holmes down the back stretch several times and on the last lap was able to put the Schaffer Oil, RDL, and Innovative Graphics in front and as they came out of turn four Holmes would spin, bringing out the caution one last time. Tyler Thompson made a run at fast qualifier Gardner on the last restart, but came up short as Gardner collected his third win of the season. Pole sitter Frank Oriti recovered from an early caution to finish third while Dustin Daugherty ran a solid race long fourth as Jim Nicely came back from an early caution also to fill out the top five. Holmes and Thompson collected the $50 to win heat races. In heat race action, TA Perrine flew over the turn two guardrail and never stopped, coming back onto the track, receiving a standing ovation from the large crowd as he continued in the heat race.
Gary Hensel Jr. of Wooster shot into the lead from his 4th starting position on lap one with sixth starting Dale Beckett on his back bumper and those two would duel for the win all race long of the WQKT Mini Stock feature. Beckett could never find a way to get around the Painful Desires Tatoo’s, J& M Carpentry and Smitley Towing #28h of Hensel Jr. as he would win his first feature of the year. Michael Rose would work his way through the field from his 13th starting spot to capture third as Mark Adkins and Chris Priebe rounded out the top five. The $25 to win heat races went to Trae Schonauer and Beckett.
Galena’s Rolly Heyder swept the Mini Truck races and he becomes the only driver to win two features in the three year history of the Blowout at WCS. Colton Locker made a last lap charge and the two bumped coming out of turn four with the checkered flag waving. The Connell’s Furniture, Jack Maxton Chevrolet and James Madison Insurance #10 of Heyder would win by inches. Dwayne Powell and Joey Heyder would finish third and fourth.
Donnie Danley would take the lead from Nick Large on lap three and pick up his first Mini Wedge win as Billy Dawson Zoe Stafford, Nick Large and Logan Duncan would follow. Nick Large would win the heat race. After the race, the season long points awards were awarded as Billy Dawson won the track championship with 672 points as he won 7 features on the year. Jolene Voshel was runner up with 587 points backed by 8 top five finishes and three seconds during the season. Logan Duncan finished third with 548 points with three wins and 9 top fives. Matthew Moore finished with 372 points for fourth place as he had two second place finishes with 7 top fives.
Mike Winters lead the opening 6 laps of the Flat Track Carts but his Cart would conk out and give the lead to Colton Shaw and he would drive away for his first win aboard the #01 cart. Brandon Gardner and Brad Haudenschild jumped into the carts and finished second and third while John Mullinex and Jack Lamborn rounded out the top five. Jamie Johnson and Shaw won the heat races.
All of the Fast Qualifiers won a $100 thanks to Fisher Performance, Jim Nicely, Larry Bellman and Jason and Kristin Flory.
