STORER TURNS SEASON AROUND AT AUBURNDALE by Gene Crane Auburndale, FL. - Robbie Storer recovered from a month of motor problems to claim the Late Model Sportsman feature win Saturday night at Auburndale Speedway. Storer's twenty car length advantage over a charging Jeff McCaw shrank to only five as the two encountered slower traffic in the closing laps. McCaw ran out of laps and had to settle with second. Rookie of the year challenger Tony Poff worked past Bart Weatherford for third dropping Weatherford to fourth and Bud Bronson completed the first five finishers. Ollie Harbin takes over the point lead from Howard O'Steen. Fred Brunson ran away with the Dwarf Car Racing Association 20 lap feature. Dennis Benoit, Bob Makuch and series point leader Bill Burback were unable to mount a serious challenge to Brunson and along with Paul Hunsberger rounded out the top five. Jay Kaminski made it two in a row with his Ford Courier Modified Mini Stock. Kaminski, who three weeks ago blew an engine in practice, worked his way to the front and will crack into the top five in the point standings for the Mini Stock division. Kevin Boykin finished second, also for the second straight week, with his Dodge Charger. Boykin seemed able to gain slightly on Kaminski in the final laps but Kaminski's early advantage was just to much to overcome. Chuck Frazier, Don Ezell and Keith Roggen gave chase to finish third through fifth. Kim Scheffler-Hays also made it a repeat performance in the V8 Pure Stock division by winning the 15 lap feature. Using the same outside line she used last week, Kim worked her way from the ninth starting position to take the lead at the halfway point and then go on to the win. While Hays checked out on the field the second position became a five car battle with Ted Anderson finally prevailing over Donnie Harp, Daniel Clough and Greg Bacon. The win moves Hays from sixth to fourth in the tight points battle and Daniel Clough takes over the point lead from James Wright, who drops to second. Street Stock action was dominated by Tim Roark who started from the pole and went on to win the 25 lap feature. Roark led by 10 car lengths at the finish over Keith Schoonover and Michael King. Westley Bass and Chuck Steele rounded out the top five. The point standings have become a close three way battle between King, Bass and David Williamson with King taking command by two points over Bass. Tim Ward paced the 15 lap 4 Cylinder Pure Stock Feature A to lead Wayne Weaver, John Bews Jr. and Jan Mason to the checkered flag. 11 year old Freddie Lucas won a spirited battle in the Kids Club Junior division race over Richie Acres, and Larry McCormick. Burt Morse took the Senior division win followed by Kenny Hankins and R. J. Williams. Racing action continues Saturday night May 31st when the Pro Figure 8 drivers join the regular divisions beginning at 7:10 PM.
