CARMAGO, IL (Dec. 5, 2008) - Dale Blaney's highly successful campaign along the rugged O'Reilly All Star Circuit of Champions Sprint Car trail will culminate Saturday, January 24, 2009 in the Eldora Ballroom as the All Stars will join Eldora Speedway and the Sunoco American Late Model Series (ALMS) in a busy night of awards.
All Star president Guy Webb will reward Blaney and car owner George Fisher with a hefty $50,000 payday, as the Fowler, OH veteran upends the two-year streak of Greg Wilson atop the year-end points race.

Those five will be joined by Brandon Martin, Ryan Myers, lee Stark, Brock Mayes and Tim Shaffer as the top ten in the cumulative points will be rewarded.
