MARTIN MASTERS NAPA WCS SPRINTS; DROWN DIALS UP L.M. VICTORY
Friday, May 17, 2013
By Mike Swanger
Wooster’s Broc Martin rolled out for the first time this season in the Fisher Performance Sprints at NAPA Auto Parts Wayne County Speedway and looked to be in mid season form as he drew the number one pill to start on the pole of the 25 lap feature and would lead all the way to park the Santmyer Oil, SCFN, and Jim Smith #83 in victory circle. As Bob Lime and Jason Dolick dueled early on for second, Martin would build up a huge lead as Danny Mumaw, Andrew Palker and Chris Myers would have to battle through Lime and Dolick to get into second. Myers would spin out on lap 10 and have to work his way back up through the field as Dolick would bring out the caution on lap 14 and retire to the pits. On the restart, Mumaw made a charge for the lead, but Martin fended that run off and would jump back out to a half a straightaway lead and as the laps wound down, Martin would encounter some lapped traffic and that allowed Mumaw one last drive for the win but Martin slipped through the back markers to post his first win.
Palker, the Dzugan Fire and Rescue fast qualifier, finished third with Myers weaving his way back up to fourth as Lee Jacobs rounded out the top five. Palker and Myers won the Saldana Racing Products heat races.
With the World of Outlaw Late Models heading into town next week, a couple of PA drivers popped into town this week as Davey Johnson would be the Dzugan Fire and Rescue fast qualifier with Keith Barbara also checking in. Johnson, Doug Drown and Charlie Duncan posted the Summit Racing Equipment heat wins but Johnson’s powerplant began smoking at the end of his heat and he would not make the call for the feature for the Lias Tire Late Models. Wooster’s Drown and Shane McLoughlin would start on the front row of the feature and they would go side by side for the opening three laps as Keith Berner edged past McLoughlin for second on lap six with Ryan Markham moving past McLoughlin two laps later as Barbara and Corey Conley wheeled and dealed for fourth. As the race wore on, Drown and his Weekley Electric and Wooster Glass #63 would increase his lead as Berner and Markham fought for second with Barbara and Conley flip flopping for fourth and at the checkered flag it was Berner behind Drown with Markham, Barbara and Conley trailing, Kyle Bates won the last chance race.
Newark’s Kevin Morehouse topped the VP Racing Fuel heat race and then went flag to flag for the NAPA Auto Parts Modified feature for his first win of the season aboard the Sam’s Used Cars and Morehouse Logging #28. Dzugan Fire and Rescue fast qualifier, Chris Basich finished second for the third time this season as Mike Mizer,opening night feature winner Nathan Loney and Josh Morrow filled out the top five.
Brandon Gardner charged to the low side of the track from his third place starting position and came out of turn two with the lead and then lumbered through numerous cautions to pick up his second win. Driving the Rowtac, GLR, and RDL #27g, the Miamisburg driver would drive out to a six car length lead as Brandon Craver, Jeremy Lynch and Bob Daugherty went back and forth for second with Todd Swim joining the action. As the checkered flew it was Gardner, Lynch, Daugherty and Swim making a last lap pass on Craver for fourth. Larry Baldwin was the Dzugan Fire and Rescue fast qualifier for the Thrifty Muffler Super Stocks as Daugherty, Lynch and Shawn Cains won the Summit Racing Equipment heats as Todd Gallion pocketed the last chance win.
The WQKT Mini Stocks stayed bunched together as Gary Hensel Sr, Doug Hensel, Jason Shaw and Jason King all had the lead at one time or another as a couple of times they were four wide down the front stretch. With a caution on the next to last lap, the double file restart saw Hensel Sr. jump the start on Shaw and finished first but was docked to places for the jump start to give the win to Shaw and his Finishline Motors #1, his second in a row. Billy Parsons took home second followed by Hensel Sr., King and Jeff Barker. Heat winners were Hensel Sr and King.
Tanner McLoughlin of Zanesville won the heat and then lead all the way in the Mini Wedge main to park the 2 Brothers Motorsports and McLoughlin Auto Sales #59 in victory circle for the second time this season. Logan Duncan who was the only other driver on the lead lap finished secon with Daniel Selway, Billy Dawson and Mason Duncan checking in to the top five.
Next Friday night, May 24th will be the World of Outlaw Late Models chasing down the $10,000 to win race with the BOSS Wingless Sprints and the Thrifty Muffler Super Stocks in action with race time set for 7:45 pm. Check the website at http://www.waynecountyspeedway.com/ for all the info.
