Haudenschild Wins CarQuest Cavalcade of Sprints By Richard Day PHOENIX, AZ (February 21) - While El Nino threatened to wash out the first three events of the Pennzoil World of Outlaws Series' 20th Anniversary Season, it couldn't dampen the spirits of Jack Elden's Pennzoil racing team Saturday. Driver Jac Haudenschild and newly married crew chief Guy Forbrook had the #22 Maxim running among the leaders all night and eventually won the CarQuest Cavalcade of Sprints at Manzanita Speedway. "This is our first win at Manzanita and it feels great," said Haudenschild, who has raced with the World of Outlaws throughout its 20-year history. "The Pennzoil car ran really good. I think we're going to have a good year. I just want to thank Jack Elden and Guy Forbrook for giving me such a good car." The action was taped by Diamond P Sports and will be aired on TNN: The Nashville Network Saturday, March 28th, between 1 and 3 p.m. Eastern time. Haudenschild, the third-fastest qualifier, finished third in both the Third Racing Champions Heat Race and the Channellock Dash and started the 30-lap "A" Feature inside the second row. After Channellock Dash winner Sammy Swindell took the lead from the pole, "The Wild Child" raced into second place midway through the opening lap when the throttle linkage on the #35 AirSep Maxim came loose, causing outside polesitter Tyler Walker to slow on the back straightaway. Walker restarted the race after Paul McMahan crashed in the second corner early in lap three, then became involved in one of the race's key incidents. Walker was unable to make it through turn two cleanly the next time around and flipped in front of Swindell. Sammy's attempt to dodge Walker sent him crashing into the second-corner wall. Swindell's and McMahan's crews repaired their cars in time for them to restart the race, but Haudenschild was the new leader. Despite repeated attempts by defending Western World champion Mark Kinser to pass him, "The Wild Child" kept the #22 up front. He entered lapped traffic during the ninth lap. With Vivarin Fast-Time Award winner Stevie Smith challenging Kinser for second place, Haudenschild extended his advantage during the race's middle stages. Although Craig Dollansky's third-corner flip temporarily slowed the fast-paced race, Haudenschild immediately started rebuilding his advantage as the race resumed. He was clocked at 15.750 seconds - .132 faster than Smith's fastest qualifying run- during the 20th lap. "The Wild Child" caught the backmarkers again with nine laps remaining, but Larry Neighbors took him out of lapped traffic the next time around when he stopped the #29N Neighbors Coffee Nygaard against the wall in turn four. Smith was gaining on Kinser in dense lapped traffic two laps later when a broken axle caused Terry McCarl's #24 McCroskey Chevrolet Maxim to hit the outside wall on the front stretch. Smith collided with McCarl, starting a chain-reaction crash in the first corner involving Andy Hillenburg, Greg Hodnett, Ronnie Day and Randy Hannagan. Haudenschild caught the backmarkers within three laps after the green flag replaced the red and extended his advantage in dense lapped traffic en route to the $7,000 payday. Steve Kinser finished third, ahead of Donny Schatz, Gary Wright, Johnny Herrera, Joe Gaerte, Jeff Swindell, Hillenburg and Garry Brazier. The race was a bittersweet one for Jeff Swindell and the Two Winners team as they debuted their new #104+ Octane Boost J&J. Jeff was only the 26th-fastest qualifier, then suffered a blown engine early in the Second Racing Champions Heat Race. He passed 12 sprinters in a backup car while winning the "C" Feature, but coasted into the infield early in the "B" Feature. Jeff used a provisional to start the main event, and gained 17 positions to finish in eighth place. Dale Blaney, who is battling Walker, Dollansky and Brazier for the World of Outlaws' 1998 Manufacturers Rookie of the Year Award, won the "B" Feature and finished 11th in the main event. TNN is scheduled to televise Friday's opening-night racing program of the Second Annual Silver State Shootout live from Las Vegas Motor Speedway, starting at 8 p.m. eastern time. WoO
