A reminder that WoO will have a two day show at Eldora this upcoming Friday and Saturday nights .
If the weather looks good I may head over for Saturday.
The WoO Sprinters will be at the ultra fast 5/8 mile hard clay of OCFS in Middletown, NY, on Saturday, May 19th. They darn near hit 142 MPH in TT's last time they were here. Sad thing - PA Posse will probably stay in PA, since it's a Sat night. Is $35.00 the normal price for a reserved seat for them? $30.00 gen adm?
Sammy Swindell led all 30 laps at Eldora tonight.
I'll post the entire results when available.
BTW, the Outlaw feature was over at 9:40.
The PA Posse struck first against the WoO on their Eastern swing. Hoping the trend continues tonight at the Grove!
To a New Yorker like yourself, a hero is some type of weird sandwich. Not some nut who takes on three Tigers!
And he had to pass another Posse member to do it.
Paul McMahan wins at Rolling Wheels. I'm only posting this because PHJIndy is asleep now.
The WoO show from the Dirt Track at Charlotte will be televised Friday night at 9PM on Speed.
Hes been racing big block modifieds since the 1970s but decdied to go 410 racing this year instead.
Steep learning curve when you decide to make Williams Grove your home track.
I assumed he had sort of a home track advantage at Middletown and he admits to the same.
Thats one nasty track.
Brutal on tires.
Always has been.
Typical surface for a NY dirt track
Faster than a bullet from a gun
He is faster than everyone
Quicker than the blinking of an eye
Like a flash you could miss him going by
No one knows quite how he does it but it's true they say
He's the master of going faster. -George Harrison
Frank raced 410's last season too. Still anytime you can run in the top 5 at a WoO event it's an accomplishment!
Dollansky Dictates Round 2 of Kasey Kahne Challenge
Kinser takes over the World of Outlaws points lead after late charge at Hagerstown
HAGERSTOWN, Md. - May 20, 2012 - Craig Dollansky was clearly the fastest at Hagerstown Speedway on Sunday night.
He clocked in almost a quarter of a second faster than anyone else - and less than two-tenths off the track record - in qualifying, charged from fourth to claim his heat race, nearly won the dash after starting sixth and led all 25 laps of the Ollie's Bargain Outlet presents the Kasey Kahne Challenge brought to you by O'Neill Race Gear feature.
"We had a good race car from the time we unloaded," Dollansky said after his third World of Outlaws win of the season.
It was his first career Outlaws victory at Hagerstown Speedway in the series return to the half-mile track following a six-year absence.
"We could hang with him early and then at the end he got by a couple of lapped cars that really held me up and that was pretty much the end of it," runner-up Daryn Pittman said.
Dollansky, who pulled a six during the dash inversion, rocketed from sixth to second in turns one and two on the opening lap of the dash. He finished a close second to Paul McMahan, who earned the pole for the feature.
The duo were side by side as they headed toward the first turn after taking the initial green flag, but it was Dollansky who powered to the top spot with Pittman in tow. McMahan fell to fourth, which is where he restarted on the only caution of the race - a spin by Greg Hodnett in turn four on the third lap.
"Just getting into (turn) one is the key," said McMahan, who rebounded to finish third for his second podium in the last three races. "The bottom is just too slow around the bottom. If you can carry your momentum around the top it's a better place to be. I had a good start. I just couldn't clear Craig down the front straightaway so I had to go to the bottom and he just carried momentum around the top, and Daryn followed right along with him."
Stevie Smith and Logan Schuchart, who restarted third and fifth, respectively, got together in turn two on the restart. It allowed Dollansky and Pittman to pull away, and it gave Cody Darrah an opportunity to rocket from eighth to fourth and Chad Kemenah to advance from 10th to fifth.
One lap later, Sammy Swindell, who entered the race tied for the championship points lead, began to fall toward the back of the field with a steering issue. By that point Dollansky had half a straightaway advantage over Pittman.
They entered traffic on lap 10, which allowed Pittman to quickly gain on Dollansky. The final 15 laps featured the duo sliding lapped cars with Dollansky pulling away to nearly a straightaway lead by the checkered flag.
"When you're leading you don't know how big of a lead you have," Dollansky said. "I felt there was a couple of times we got held up in lapped traffic and I thought it cost us.
"To come out with a win in this area is not easy to do. You've got the Pennsylvania Posse here and the best of the World of Outlaws, so I'm just proud of this entire team."
Smith finished fourth and Kraig Kinser earned his fifth top five of the season. Darrah was sixth, Danny Lasoski maneuvered from 19th to place seventh, Lance Dewease ended eighth and Joey Saldana finished ninth.
After crashing in the Last Chance Showdown, Donny Schatz used a provisional to start last in the feature and he charged from 26th to round out the top 10. It earned him the KSE Hard Charger Award for the fourth time this season.
Schatz's Tony Stewart Racing teammate, Steve Kinser, also used a provisional and drove from 25th to 11th. That, combined with Swindell's 20th-place finish, moved Kinser into the championship lead for the first time this season.
NASCAR star Kasey Kahne, who co-promoted the event, finished 15th in his World of Outlaws season debut.
Dollansky, Dewease, Darrah and Swindell picked up wins in the heat races, and Sam Hafertepe Jr. claimed the Last Chance Showdown.
The next Kasey Kahne Challenge event is Tuesday, June 5, at Kokomo Speedway in Kokomo, Ind.
