FREMONT, OH -- It was total dominance by Dale Blaney Saturday night at Fremont Speedway in the Haulmark All Star sprint car 40 lap feature. He led wire to wire in the Andrews Motorsports Maxim, earning $5,000 for his first victory of the season. Lee Jacobs, in the Burmeister No. 16 transferred from the B Main to the A main, started 10th and came home a strong second with Indiana's Bill Rose third.

"My car was really good all night long. George Fisher and Tom Andrews got that thing awful good in the feature, it was easy to drive. Anyone could have driven this car to victory tonight," Blaney related from victory lane.

John Ivy and Blaney led the field to the green flag, with Blaney taking the initial lead. Ivy, in second, executed a 360 degree spin with a lap in the books, dropping him from second to last when the yellow came out. Blaney pulled away from Rose when the green reappeared and Mike Linder, who started seventh was now third, moving up nicely in the bottom groove. When he entered lapped traffic on lap nine, Blaney had a full straightaway lead over Rose. Now Phil Gressman and Byron Reed were battling for third, just ahead of All Star points leader Chad Kemenah.

Reed took over third, and then Kemenah also got past Gressman. Kemenah was on the move also, and by lap 19 was battling with Reed.

Kemenah went low under Reed to take third at the halfway point of the race, but he slipped off the edge of the track a lap later, just before a caution flew for a John Ivy and Chad Blonde spin. This dropped Kemenah to seventh in the field.

Blaney showed his dominance once again following the restart, and pulled out to another half lap lead. Rose held a consistent second with Jacobs taking third from Reed on lap 26. Jacobs, excellent in the low groove, began catching Rose. Jacobs took over second for good on lap 32. Ivy was also on the move from the back of the pack again, and was up to fifth with six laps to go.

As the laps wound down, Blaney won easily, with Jacobs second, Rose third and Ivy fourth. He passed the most cars on the night, coming from the back of the pack twice in the Carousel Racing No. 20. Mark Keegan started 12th and came in fifth, ahead of 14th starter Danny Smith. Linder was next, followed by David Harrison, Kemenah and Craig Mintz, up from 21st starting spot.

"It was just a great night for us, this is pretty amazing," Jacobs recalled. "We've been struggling and we finally got this car operating tonight."

"We had a good night, and had fun tonight," Rose said. "We changed some stuff around and it worked."

The Crown Battery heat fell to Rob Chaney, the B&B Products heat went to Andrew Palker, the Engler Machine and Tool heat was won by Dustin Daggett and the TP Wings heat fell to Chad Blonde. Shane Helms won the Outerwears Pre-filters C Main and Mike Linder was the University of Northwestern Ohio B Main winner. Phil Gressman captured the Haulmark Dash and Kemenah was the Huggins Cams Fast Time qualifier. Jamie Miller captured the 25 lap 305 sprint A Main over Paul Weaver, Scott Miller, Brian Smith and Roger Shammo.
