Haudenschild Wins Brad Doty Classic

Jac Haudenschild vividly remembers competing against Brad Doty in World of Outlaws competition in the early and mid-1980's. The pair of Ohio natives have long been friends off the track and Haudenschild always enjoys racing in the annual event that bears the name of the 1982 World of Outlaws Rookie of the Year.

On Wednesday night, Haudenschild was able to honor the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame member, by first leading the 26 starters in the A-Feature in the missing man formation during the Four-Wide Salute to the Fans to salute Doty, and then he earned a $10,000 payday for winning the 19th Annual Fram Autolite Brad Doty Classic Presented by National Interstate Insurance at Limaland Motorsports Park..

Haudenschild powered to the lead on the opening lap exiting the second turn and went on to lead all 40 circuits as he earned his second World of Outlaws A-Feature win of the season over Steve Kinser and Jason Meyers. The largest crows in the history of the 72 year old track witnessed Haudenschild's win and were on their feet for the last 10 laps of the event.

"This is a special win," said Haudenschild, driver of the Wright One Construction Maxim. "Brad (Doty) raced tough back when he ran with the Outlaws. He was always a good competitor and we had a lot of good times on the road together."

Haudenschild began the night by turning the fastest lap in time trials, with 42 total cars clocking in. He followed that up with a win in the first heat and finished second in the Crane Cams Dash to earn the outside front row starting spot in the 40-lap event. His runner-up finish in the Crane Cams Dash, was the only thing that kept him from becoming the second driver this season to sweep an event.

"The car was running good tonight," said the winner. "The crew did a great job getting everything ready. We have been pretty fast the last few races. Hopefully we can keep this pace up and keep the car up front."

Haudenschild ran the top side of the track for most of the race, which is a trademark of the veteran driver. On several occasions in traffic, Kinser closed the gap and was just inches behind Haudenschild, looking for any opening to get by. This constant pressure had Haudenschild driving as hard as he could, as he weaved his through heavy traffic for the majority of the last 20 laps of the race, and this kept the crowd on their feet.

"We rubbed the wall a couple of time on the straightaway, but the car was handling so good that it didn't really affect me much," smiled Haudenschild.

With the yellow flag flying on the 12th lap after Terry McCarl got upside down negotiating lapped traffic as he was closing in on the second position, Haudenschild held off a couple of attempts by Kinser on the ensuing restart to take the lead on the low side of the track.

"I like the traffic," Haudenschild noted. "I wish the lapped car would be in there on the restarts. Having traffic worked out well for us tonight."

Kinser lined up fifth for the A-Feature and quickly moved in to the fourth spot just three laps into the event. He took third from McCarl just before the latter got upside down. Once he was in third. Kinser set his sights on pole sitter Craig Dollansky who was running second at that point of the race. He got around Dollansky to earn a runner-up finish.

"It wasn't too bad of a night," said Kinser, driver of the Q Oil Maxim. "I may have been too patient. I got pretty loose getting in the corners and a little loose getting off. We have been so tight here lately that we have been trying some things to free the car up. We may have gone a little bit too much, but we haven't quite figured out what we want to do yet."

While he has won seven A-Feature events this season, Kinser his team have been working on some different combinations lately, as they look for more wins. In his first trip to Limaland since a win in 1979, Kinser was quick to get up to speed, finishing second in the first heat and fifth in the Crane Cams Dash.

"We still have a little stumble in the motor," he explained. "If we get that out, we will be right there."

After having some trouble in the third heat that cost him a spot in the Crane Cams Dash, Jason Meyers lined up 13th for the 40-lap A-Feature. He steadily worked his way to the front with only the aid of an early red flag and then one caution prior to the halfway point of the race. With 27 consecutive green flag laps to finish the race, Meyers charged around car-after-car to earn a third-place finish.

"It was a great run," said Meyers, driver of the Primerica Financial Maxim. "The entire team did a great job in giving me a beautiful race car. It was my first time at this race track and it's a great race track. It was an exciting run to come from as back as we did. I wish it would have been 50 laps."

Meyers had never seen Limaland Motorsports Park prior to Wednesday afternoon, but that did not slow him down. With the number of tracks the series visits each season, he is adept at quickly getting up to speed at new tracks.

"Sometimes I think it's better to go a place you have never been, because they you don't have any preconceived ideas about it," he said. "You just come out and do what the car needs. We were good right out of the box and that is a credit to my crew."

With 26 cars competing for a $10,000 top prize on a ¼-mile most of the drivers including Meyers had their team set the car up to roll through traffic.

"You knew here that you would be in traffic right away, and that is what makes good racing," he added. "It was an exciting race. The track crew did a great job and I look forward to coming back."

Craig Dollansky finished fourth in the Karavan Trailers Maxim after battling for the lead early in event and consistently running in the Top-Five all evening. He won the Crane Cams Dash to earn the pole position.

Brooke Tatnell finished fifth aboard the Volcano Joe's Coffee Schnee. The native of San Souci, NSW, Australia began the night by turning in the fifth fastest lap in time trials and after a solid heat race finish, earned a spot in the dash.

Donny Schatz, the current World of Outlaws championship point leader finished sixth in the ParkerStore J&J, with Rob Chaney seventh in the Berlin Bakery JEI. Joey Saldana was eighth in the Open Joist Mopar-powered JEI, with Paul McMahan ninth in the Bass Pro Shops Eagle and Danny Lasoski 10th in the Roth Motorsports JEI.

NASCAR Nextel Cup star Kasey Kahne, who own Joey Saldana's car, drove as a teammate to Saldana on Wednesday night and finished a respectable 11th after beginning the night with a fourth-place effort in time trails, in a rare start in a 410-sprint car.

The World of Outlaws return to action on Friday, July 13 with the Knight Before the Kings Royal, with the 24th Annual Kings Royal by Crown Royal on Saturday, July 14, with $50,000 awaiting the winner.
