DROWN DASHES TO NAPA WAYNE COUNTY SPEEDWAY WIN; HARBLE, WILSON, THOMPSON & B. HENSEL PARK IN VICTORY LANE
Saturday, July 9, 2016
By Mike Swanger
It was another night of action packed racing on the tacky fast racing surface of NAPA Wayne County Speedway with the Harriger Towing Super Late Models in the spotlight with race #4 of the Attica Raceway Park/Wayne County Speedway series on Malcuit Tavern night. For the first 19 laps of the feature, pole sitter Brad Malcuit would set the pace with Wooster’s Doug Drown quickly taking second on the opening lap from his 6th starting position. As the two heat winners were pulling away from the rest of the field, Ryan Markham was working his way through the field from his ninth starting spot and took third from Rick Bond on lap nine. A caution on lap 11 would bunch the field together and Malcuit would lead the way again as Drown stayed in his tire tracks until lap 19 when Malcuit would slip coming out of turn four and Drown pounced on the opening and drove by to take the lead. A yellow flag with two laps to go would give Malcuit a chance as he went low in turn one but Drown and his Hall’s Auto Sales, Wooster Glass and Kar Connection #240 was on the highside and would drive away for his third win of the season. Malcuit would finish with a season best second and take the tracks point lead. Markham’s third place finish would move him into the points lead of the ARP/WCS series with two races to go. Those will be contested in September. Bond would hold off Kirk Baker for fourth.
Wrecking his car on Friday night, Newark’s Mitch Harble would set in the drivers seat of the Kempthorn Auto, Fire & Ice Pub and All Things Retro #38k and go wire to wire for his first win of the season and his second career win in the Fisher Performance Sprint feature. Although Harble lead all the way, a lot of action was going on behind him as 1st heat winner, Shawn Hubler, Jimmy Colvin, Nick Patterson and Danny Mumaw would spend time in second place. Colvin would take second from Hubler on lap three but a flat tire 7 circuits later put a hiccup in Colvin’s run as Patterson inherited second. Mumaw, who started ninth and was to 4th on lap three, would power slide Patterson on lap 13 for second. With a caution with two to go. Mumaw had one last chance but Harble pulled away from Mumaw but on the last lap going down the backstretch, Harble would rub tires with the lapped car of Jeremy Duposki with Harble hanging on to get the win as Duposki ended up sideways, blocking the track exit as the race finished. Patterson would take third behind Mumaw as 2nd heat winner Chris Myers collected 4th as Colvin recovered to take fifth.
Bob Daugherty grabbed the lead from the outside pole in the Action Auto Body Super Stock main with points leader Tyler Thompson and Paul Holmes right on his rear bumper. With numerous caution flags in the race that kept the field packed together, the top three positions would stay the same until a lap 12 restart, when Thompson made a move to the outside of Daugherty, who was glued to the low groove all race long. The Streetsboro driver got the run coming out of turn two to take the lead and then park the Action Auto Body, Nella Enterprises and Ofex of Ohio #T2 for the fifth time this season. On the same lap Holmes got sideways and last several positions and that allowed Tyler Nicely to take third behind Daugherty as Jordan James and Cliff Staley filled out the top five. Daugherty and Thompson claimed the heat wins.
Following the races only caution flag on lap 12, Cortland’s Eric Wilson took the lead from Justin Chance on the restart of the Kar Connection Rush Late Model feature to post his second win of the season. Chance, who led from the drop of the green flag, would take the outside line on the double file restart and slid high in turn two and that allowed heat winner Wilson and his Mark Thomas Ford, Hovis Tire & Automotive and Pennzoil #27w to go low and take the lead for good. Dave Airgood would finish third behind Chance as Alan Dellinger and Matt Aber rounded out the top five.
Smithville’s Brad Hensel would take the lead from Michael Workman on lap three of the WQKT Mini Stock main and then hold off Doug Hensel late in the race and win his third feature of the season aboard the JoyRide Transportation, M&S Concrete, and DJ Directional Services #28. Eighth starting Chris Priebe finished third with Stephen Crowe claiming fourth as Wes Staley picked his way through the field to take fifth after starting 11th. Heat winners were Crowe, Workman and Doug Hensel.
Jamie Johnson pocketed the Flat Track Cart win over Austin Johnson, Justin Chance, Daryl Conkle and Coty Conway.
