Explosive Start to 1999 Racing Season At Auburndale

Auburndale, FL- The 1999 racing season has begun with an explosive start at the Auburndale Speedway. Jesse the Human Bomb, the Kids Club and the regular lineup of racing divisions all took to the quarter mile on Saturday night to thrill the crowded grandstand. The best appearing car was judged for each division and the winners were: Westley Bass, Limited Late Model Sportsman; Michael King, Street Stock; Randy Storer, Modified Mini Stock; Dan Rising, V8 Pure Stock; and Scott Taylor, 4 Cylinder Pure Stock.

The Kids Club not only sponsored Jesse the Human Bomb's appearance but also kicked off their 1999 season with Sean Bass and Jason Deaton taking wins in their divisions. In the Junior division, 13 year old Charlene Lewis jumped out to a short lived lead on the start when Sean Bass took over the point to make the run to the checkers and the second career win for the 12 year old. In the Senior division Jason Deaton slipped out front after the throttle cable broke on 12 year old Aaron Williamson's Dodge Charger. The second place battle became a three car war between Richie Acres and Andy Lewis, a pair of 15 year olds, and Freddie Lucas, who is 13.

Howard O'Steen was able to fend off a late challenge from Dave Dunkin to claim the win in the 25 lap Limited Late Model feature. Defending division champion, Richard Elkins Jr., won his heat race but could only muster a third place finish in the main. Ollie Harbin and Westley Bass completed the top 5.0

After posting the win in his heat race Mike Pitts motored to the 25 lap Street Stock feature win over Ron Lofquist and Jason Bennett. Dale Poff returned to racing action in the Street Stock division and brought his number 0 home fourth ahead of Steve Ware.

Wayne Weaver also posted a double win night by taking the win in the Modified Mini Stock feature as well as his heat race. Randy Storer survived a three wide battle into turn one on the start to go on to finish second. Jay Kaminski, Rick Sirmans and Eugene Davidson rounded out the top 5 at the finish.

V8 Pure Stock action saw Brian Donahue coast to victory over Jason Todd and Daniel Clough. Carl Thompson and Robin O'Neal completed the top five.

Randy King took the checkers to win the 4 Cylinder Pure Stock feature followed by Greg Case and Scott Taylor. Mark Soule slipped by a fourth place tangle out of turn four on the final lap between Chris Narramore and Matthew Craig. Craig managed get to the line for fifth. Narramore spun into the outside wall and was able to exit the car on his own power.

Racing action continues next Saturday night with all regular division in action and a visit from the Top Cop Racing Association. Grandstand gates open at 5 PM and racing starts at 7 PM.
