WOODSTOCK, GA - Club All Star points leader Dale Blaney broke out of a month long winless slump Saturday night at Dixie Speedway, capturing his tenth feature win of the season, worth $5,000. His last win was exactly 30 days ago, at Pa's. Hickory Motor Speedway.

Behind Blaney's Hughes Wheel and Axle J&J came Danny Smith, for his best finish of the season in the Ken & Sherry Bodkins Jenkins, with Ricky Hood third in Joe Herrera's Avenger. J&J pilot Frankie Kerr was fourth and Maxim driver Keith Kauffman was fifth.

With eight cars inverted on the start of the 30-lap feature, Ohio's Greg "the kid" Wilson sat on the pole with Smith alongside. Kenny Jacobs started third, with Hood fourth and fast timer Blaney eighth. Wilson took the lead at the start, with Jacobs second and Smith third. By lap six, it was Wilson still on top, with Jacobs second, Hood third and Blaney getting by Smith for fourth.

With a dozen laps in the books, veteran experience finally previled over yourth as Jacobs made a slick move to get by Wilson for the top spot, with Hood following Jacobs by for second. Smith got by Wilson a lap later, and by lap 15 it was Jacobs, Hood, Blaney, Smith and Wilson on the dry-slick red clay oval.

On lap 27, Jacobs, who held a six car length lead, got too high off turn two trying to avoid a spinning backmarker, slapped the wall and flattened his right rear tire. Jacobs was through for the night, putting Smith in command on the restart. Smith had just passed Hood for second on the prior circuit, so the misfortune for Jacobs was Smith's gain. Blaney was now third and Frankie Kerr fourth.

It was now a three lap dash to the checkered. Blaney powered his way into the lead after the restart, passing the two leaders in one fell swoop to take command and lead the final pair of laps. Smith's Gaerte powerplant was good enough for second, with Hood third, Kerr fourth and Kauffman fifth.

Completing the top ten were fifth starter Todd Kane in Junior Holbrook's Schnee, Wilson in his own GL Doemelt, 11th starter Mike Lutz in his father's Blaneybuilt, Joey Nash aboard a J&J and Daniel Coggeshell's Viper. Coggeshell recovered from a lap four spin to work his way steadily back into the top ten.

The Butlerbuilt heat went to Kane, the United Expresslines heat to Kerr and the other heat to Jacobs with the Commercial Truck & Trailer Dash to Blaney. Time Trials: 1.
