Paul Hahn took home his first career Late Model feature victory Saturday night at Flat Rock Speedway. For the second week in a row the 35-lap race was plagued by yellow flags. Only two laps into the race, Stan Yee Jr broke loose in turn one. The cars of Bill Steinhilber & Rick Knowles were eliminated along with Yee. On lap 19 the lead pair of Joy Fair and Jimmy Thiel tangled in turn one and Steve Bunge with no place to go slammed into the turn one wall, nearly flipping over. Bunge and Fair were out for the night. Hahn inherited the lead and put up a fierce battle with Ron Allen for the remaining laps.
The fans gave the A main Street Stock division a standing ovation after they put on an outstanding green to checker show. Carl Bumgardner, Rick Knowles and Brian Norton waged a knock-down-dragged-out battle for the entire 25-lap feature that kept the fans on the edge of their seats. Bumgardner crossed the finish line first with Knowles and Norton breathing down his neck. These A street stock races are worth the price of admission alone.
John Huebner won the 15-lap B main over Terry Humphrey.
Ken Ahlgren took the lead from his outside front row starting spot and never relinquished it. As usual this division put on a thrilling show for the fans as they crisscrossed at the 'X'.
Next Saturday, May 8, the AUTO CITY Delco/Murray's Iceman Series will return for a 100 lapper at Flat Rock for the first time in five years. Also, on the card will be the Street Stock and Figure 8 divisions.
