By Mike Swanger
Despite heavy rain showers in the late afternoon, the Flory’s decided to go ahead with the racing program Saturday night and the track crew did a great job of getting the race surface of Orrville’s Historic Oval into great racing shape on McDonald’s and Hall’s Auto Sales night. The Ohio Sprint Car Series made their second visit of the year to NAPA WCS as the 28 sprinters were led in qualifying by Carson Macedo’s lap of 14.178 seconds. Picking off the heat wins were Dean Jacobs, Danny Mumaw, Jac Haudenschild, who with Nick Patterson, who is the Fisher Performance points leader at NAPA WCS, put on a crowd standing race as they went back and forth with slide jobs on each other before Haudenschild would win, and Dominic Scelzi. Ryan Broughton captured the last chance win. The 25 lap feature would be brought to the green flag by Patterson and Cole Duncan but quickly came to a stop when Macedo got sideways in turn two with Troy Kingan making contact and flipped. He was ok. Macedo and Broughton both went to the pits for repairs and returned on the tail of the field. As the race restarted, Cole Duncan grabbed the lead with Patterson in second but Haudenschild quickly moved past Patterson on lap three from his 7th starting position and closed in on Duncan. The caution would wave on lap 6 as fifth running Mumaw came to a stop in turn four and at the same time, Patterson, who was still third, pulled off with mechanical problems. Back to green flag action, Duncan could not shake Haudenschild as they pulled away from the pack until a lap 16 yellow for Mumaw again but the big happening during this was that Haudenschild’s motor went sour and he would pull off, ending his chance at repeating his July 2nd win at NAPA WCS. This would move Danny Smith into second with Scelzi in third. As the green returned, Duncan would pull away and the Lockbourne driver would put the Helms Construction and I.S.P.C. #22 into the OSCS victory lane for the third time this season. Smith would hold off Scelzi until the last lap when Scelzi nipped him at the finish line for second. Jacobs would take fourth as 11th starting Wayne McPeek finished out the top five.
Jerry Aber would grab the opening lap lead of the Harriger Towing Super Late Model main but Strasburg’s Brad Malcuit would power past on the next circuit and open up a good lead until a lap 8 caution for Jason Skelly. Ryan Markham had been picking his way through the field from his 7th starting spot and was in third behind Aber when the caution flew. With the green lights back on, Markham made quick work of Aber, who would slow the action with a spin on lap 11. From that point on to the checkered flag, Malcuit and his Malcuit Tavern and Malcuit Engines #79 would fend off every move that Markham made. Trying the highside and the low groove, Markham could pull alongside in turns two and four but Malcuit would out gas him down the straightaways for his 1st win. JR Gentry took third from Larry Bellman with six circuits to go as with Kirk Baker claiming fifth. Malcuit and Markham scored the heat wins.
In a season that has been a struggle for the defending track champion, Millersburg’s Charlie Duncan put it all together Saturday night as he went flag to flag for his first Kar Connection Rush Late Model win of the year. Driving the Hall’s Auto Sales, Kar Connection and Auto Pro #240 Duncan would lead by a straightaway for most of the race as two time winner Eric Wilson and Matt Aber who won two weeks ago, dueled for second. Aber would claim second with five to go but all he could do was close the gap a little bit on Duncan. Wilson would keep third as heat winner Alan Dellinger was fourth and points leader Justin Chance was fifth.
Canton’s Paul Holmes would pop into the lead of the Action Auto Body Super Stock feature at the drop of the green flag but the action would come to a screeching halt as the pack went into turn one starting lap three. Seven cars got tangled up that would eliminate Eric Eicholtz, Chase Alexander, Bob Daugherty, Darren Dawson, Nick Smith and Brandon Craver as Chris Albright was the only one able to continue. On the restart, Holmes would pull away in his #68 as the battle was on for second between Dustin Daugherty, points leader Tyler Thompson and Cliff Staley. Thompson would power past Daugherty with six laps to go but could not track down Holmes. Daugherty and Staley would flip flop positions until Daugherty would claim third for good with three circuits to go. Gary Hensel Jr. rounded out the top five after beginning 12th. Thompson, Brandon Gardner and Chase Alexander topped the heat races.
Doug Hensel took the lead of the WQKT Mini Stock main from his outside front row starting position for the opening three laps when two time winner Dale Beckett would take over the lead. His lead would last three laps as Smithville’s Brad Hensel would take over. Hensel would the pilot the M & S Concrete, Joy Ride Transportation and DJ Directional Service #28 to victory circle for the fifth time this season and expand his points lead. Colton St John and Chris Priebe would also get by Beckett on lap seven and would hound Hensel for the top spot but never could get by St John would be the runner up as Priebe settled for third followed by Beckett and Mitch Reichard. Heat winners were Brad Hensel, Michael Workman and Beckett as Braden Wert took the last chance win.
Brandon Gardner was the winner of the Flat Track Cart feature.
Drivers were once again chasing after over $100,000 of yearly prizes in the Contingency Connection Racer Rewards programs.
Racing continues next Saturday, August 6 with all regular divisions in action with the WQKT Mini Stocks competing for their next to last Summer Series race. Check the website out at www.waynecountyspeedway.com
