ATTICA, OH - Butch Schroeder led only the last few feet of the race to win the tenth annual All Star sprint Brad Doty Classic 40-lap feature Wednesday night at Attica Raceway Park. The win was worth $5,000 and came after passing Joey Saldana in the final turn as the two leaders made contact, with Schroeder gathering in his Maxim and crossing the finish line half a car length ahead of Saldana. He became the 10th different Doty Race winner in ten events.
"I knew we had a good car. Tim put the right tires on, Tom turned the right wrenches, Jim made the right selection on the bars and Paul Kistler builds one hell of an engine," Schroeder exclaimed from victory lane. "We were both going for it at the end. I didn't know who won at first. I thought we might be on our lid and I was hoping to cross the line first if we were." Schroeder said of his collision with Saldana. Schroeder and his family own their own Maxim, sponsored by Burns Electric, with Kistler-Chevy power and utilizing Goodyear Tires.
Runner-up Saldana recalled, "I started working the bottom and I felt really good. He (Schroeder) just got a good run off the corner and won the race. I was just spinning the wheels real bad off four at the end."
Greg Hodnett started on the ButlerBuilt Motorsports Equipment Hot Seat pole position in the Apple No. 12 with Saldana alongside in the Steve Mox Stealth. Hodnett led with Saldana second, Byron Reed third and Schroeder fourth. Kasey Kahne started sixth, and was fifth when he spun into the infield on lap three, but kept moving, dropping way back in the pack. By lap seven the leaders were in lapped traffic, and Hodnett and Saldana were nose to tail on lap nine, with Saldana grabbing the lead on lap ten running through turns three and four. After four cautions on the next four laps, the drivers settled down again with Saldana leading in the low groove over Hodnett, Schroeder and Fred Rahmer, who started 14th. Rahmer passed Schroeder low going down the backstretch on lap 17 for third and the leaders got back into lapped traffic again on lap 23.
Rahmer took over second behind Saldana on lap 25, but Schroeder began to make a move in the middle groove of the slick third-mile. He disposed of Hodnett, then passed Rahmer for second on lap 28. Schroeder was slowly reeling in Saldana and a lap 37 caution set up a three lap run to the checkered. Saldana ran the low groove after the green reappeared with Schroeder in the middle groove. The white flag came out with Saldana a car length ahead of Schroeder. Down the backstretch Schroeder pulled even with Saldana's back bumper and going into turn three, they were side by side and Schroeder drove up around Saldana in the middle grove, inching ahead coming off turn four. Saldana drove high to block Schroeder and the pair collided, both getting slightly sideways with Schroeder recovering more quickly to cross the finish line first. Rahmer was third with Kelly Kinser fourth after starting 19th. Frankie Kerr was next, with Paul McMahan sixth and Dean Jacobs finished seventh, earning the "Team Simpson Racing Lucky Seven" award. Hodnett, Rodney Duncan and Kenny Jacobs completed the top ten as Kenny came all the way from the back after a lap 13 pit stop.
Rahmer said of third, "I wasn't smart enough to move up where Butch was running. He rolled into the center and if I'd have drove a little better I could have gotten a little better result. It's nice to run a race for Brad Doty because by far he was the nicest outlaw driver there ever was."
The United Expressline heat fell to Kelly Kinser, the Southwest Expressline heat to Fred Rahmer, the Southwest Glass heat was won by Jac Haudenschild and the United Specialties heat went to Rob Chaney.
