HARTFORD, OH - It was a heartbreak for Rob Chaney. And it was the second win of the season for Jeff Shepard in the All Star sprint race Saturday night at Sharon Speedway. The 20th annual Sharon Nationals preliminary win was worth $5,000 to the Maryland driver in the Double L Racing No. 4J, aboard Goodyear tires and powered by a Kriner-Chevrolet engine. Chaney had led laps 1-23 until he hit a rut and blew his left rear tire, handing the lead and win to Shepard. "The track was real rough tonight, it was fast but it was rough. I'm just real happy that my car all stayed together." Shepard stated. "My crew did a good job of keeping all the nuts and bolts together." After starting fifth, Sean Michael took over second when Shepard took the lead and finished a quarter lap behind. "I think we had a sick cylinder," Michael related. "The motor just wasn't making power all night. The track was racy when it's like this. You just stand on the gas the whole time. I like racing like this." Second place also earned Michael the $100 TW Metals nightly bonus. Veteran Keith Kauffman started eighth and came home a steady third. "This track kind of separates the men from the boys," Kauffman said of his third place run in the Middleswarth Potato Chip Machine. Kenny Jacobs was on the ButlerBuilt Hot Seat pole position with Chaney alongside in Stan Courtad's No. 9x. James Chesson and Chad Kemenah made up row two. Jacobs led into turn one, but Chaney outpowered him to officially lead the first lap, and he began pulling away from Jacobs. By the time he entered lapped traffic on lap seven, Chaney had amassed a quarter lap lead over Jacobs, James Chesson and Shepard. The first caution appeared on lap 19 when Danny Smith stopped on the track. He pulled pitside, and while under caution Jacobs had to stop and change a flat as did Todd Gracey. Chaney led over Shepard for the restart, with Michael now third and Kauffman fourth. They ran that way until the fateful lap 23 when Chaney hit a turn one rut hard, exploding his left rear tire and handing the race to Shepard. Chad Kemenah ran fourth the entire second half of the race and finished there ahead of Byron Reed. Chesson crossed the line sixth, but came up two pounds light at the scales. He was disqualified, putting his brother PJ into sixth. Todd Shaffer finished seventh, earning the Team Simpson Racing Lucky Seven award. Next were Jerrod Hull, Mike Lutz and Jacobs. The heats went to Jerrod Hull, Kelly Kinser, Dave Ely, Kevin Huntley and Todd Bauer. James Chesson won the Georgia Marketing & Promotions B Main and Arnie Kent won the C Main. C.W. Harshman captured the Alky Dash. Jeff Shepard set a new track record of 15.710 seconds, breaking Frankie Kerr's 15.764 mark from April 28. Lance Dewease had a tough night, with ignition problems keeping him from starting his heat and then he fell from the C Main with engine problems. Lou Blaney won a caution filled modified feature, earning $2,000. <pre> TIME TRIALS: 1. Jeff Shepard, Double L 4J, 15.710 (NTR); 2. Sean Michael, Zemco 1z, 15.804; 3.
