Dave Kuhlman gave his customary kiss to victory lane after winning the Shooter's Iceman Series race at Central PA Speedway Saturday night. It was the traveling circuit's second visit of the season to the Pennsylvania speedplant.
The first start was quickly aborted when polesitter Mike Hennessy was apparently tapped by Scott Baker, spinning Hennessy around in front of the entire field. Hennessy resumed the lead on the restart. On lap two it appeared that Baker's car went wide and pushed up into Hennessy who hit Aaron Hulings. Hulings car slammed into the turn two wall and was done for the evening. Baker took over the lead.
A tight battle ensued between the cars of Baker, fast qualifier Jason Mignogna, Kuhlman and Glenn Gault. Mignogna got a run on Baker and the pair touched on lap 34, with Baker spinning around several times.
After being charged with the caution flag the pair were put to rear and Kuhlman inherited the lead. The Howell, Mich. driver pulled out to a 11-car length lead over Gault which he held for the remaining 66 laps.
"I Know we had luck going our way this time but in addition we had a near perfect handling race car once again. I don't know what it is about that big track and me, but I sure love that place. It seems to fit me and my style of driving very well. I sure enjoy racing there and I'm hoping that we might have one more race there before the end of the year." said the driver of the Monroe Asphalt/Right Tools/Zeillers Farm Market/HJ Prime Cuts/5 Point Embroidery/KMH Monte Carlo.
It was Kuhlman's third win in six Iceman races held at Central PA Speedway over the past three years. The win was Kuhlman's 21st Iceman feature of his career tying him with Freddie Campbell for the most career Iceman wins.
