CLUB ALL STAR SPRINT RESULTS - Fri. 7/21/95 - Eldora Speedway Rossburg, OH - By Scott Hall

ROSSBURG, OH - Jac Haudenschild used two restarts to pass his competitors for the lead and scored his third Club All Star sprint win of the season Friday night at Eldora Speedway. The win, in the Night Before The Kings Royal feature, was worth $5,000 to the pilot of Jack Elden's Pennzoil machine. Haudenschild finished a half- straight ahead of runnerup Joey Saldana. "We had more gear than anybody, that's why we were good on the restarts." Haudenschild said. "But once we got strung out we were done, that's why we had to do it on the restarts. Saldana started on the pole and led the first 17 laps until Haudenschild flew by on a restart. "I just didn't get a good run on the restart and he got by me," Saldana said. "I was just lucky to run second." Behind the two leaders was Jeff Swindell, who shared the front row with Saldana on the start. Dale Blaney started 17th and ran fourth with Jimmy Hawley fifth, up from 14th, in Amy Shoup's Avenger. "We just had plenty of problems tonight," Swindell said afterward. "We couldn't get the motor to run, it just stumbled all over itself taking off and didn't want to come off the corner very good. That left the door open for Jac to get around on that restart." With Saldana leading at the start, Swindell followed in second with fourth starting Haudenschild third. Stevie Smith ran fourth in the Ecowater machine, followed by Johnny Herrera and Kerry Madsen. On lap 11, Madsen had his front wing become loose and fold over up on his hood. But the Australian driver did not slow down. Then, on lap 14, the wing totally flew off, sending Madsen head-on full bore into the turn three wall. Madsen was not injured in the crash. After the green came back out, Haudenschild went high around Swindell to take second and chase Saldana for the lead. The yellow came back out when fourth running Smith had a rock hit his spark plug guard and bend it onto his plug, shorting it out and losing a cylinder. Smith stopped on the backstretch, again slowing the field. On the restart, Haudenschild dove under Saldana in turn one, and drifted in front in turn two, bumping Saldana's front wheel with his right rear while taking the lead. It was a lead he would never relinquish, leading the last 13 circuits. With only ten machines running at the end, Frankie Kerr came home sixth after starting 19th. Tim Shaffer was seventh, followed by Ed Lynch, Jr., Todd Kane and Craig Rankin. Smith set fast time over the 46 car field for a new Eldora All Star track record. Kerr won the ButlerBuilt heat, Jeff Shepard took the United Expresslines heat with Dale Blaney and Kevin Huntley the other heat winners. The Commercial Truck & Trailer dash fell to Saldana with the Arizona Sport Shirts C Main to Byron Reed with the Outerwears Pre-Filters B Main to Dwain Leiber. Chuck Scribner flipped in the C main, but he wasn't injured. Time Trials: 1. Stevie Smith, Motter 71m, 13.476; 2. Kerry Madsen, Madsen 29, 13.628; 3. Jac Haudenschild, Elden 22, 13.650; 4.
