BENTON, MO -- Paul May captured his first career series win Saturday night at Auto and Tire Parts Racepark in the Haulmark All Star sprint car 40 lap feature. With the win, the Terre Haute, IN resident became the 22nd All Star feature winner of 2004 out of 46 races. May's No. 71 is a J&J Chassis with Gaerte power. May passed Randy Hannagan with only three laps remaining and held off Joey Montgomery for the win.
May and "The Hurricane" Hannagan brought the field down to the green and Hannagan got the jump into turn one and took the lead over May. By lap five, Hannagan was already in lapped traffic and by lap eight the leader had built a half straightaway lead on May.
The first yellow came out on lap 10 for Joey Moughan who half spun in turn two and headed toward the infield then drove to the inside of turn one and stops. The running order was now Hannagan, May, Joey Montgomery, Jason Johnson and quick qualifier Lee Dunn. On the restart Mike Ward uses the high line to move around Dunn and take fifth.
The next yellow on lap 12 was for All Star Champion Chad Kemenah, who stopped on bottom of turns three and four. Hannagan still led May, Montgomery, Johnson and Ward at this point. Hannagan opens up a five car length lead over May on the restarts but May slowly reels him in and is on his back bumper after only a few laps.
Action was slowed again just before the half-way mark with the running order Hannagan, May, Montgomery, Johnson, Ward, Dunn, Kelly Kinser, Dean Jacobs, Jerrod Hull and Tim Montgomery. With Hannagan and May still one-two, fourth place Johnson spins in turn two doing two 360s, smoking the tires, but he continues on with no yellow coming out. It was a perfectly executed 720 but Johnson fell back to 14th place.
The turning point of the race was lap 37 Hannagan was trying to lap a car in turns one and two and caught a bit of a rut and May got a run on the leader. May goes from top to bottom crossing over and shoots by Hannagan down the backstretch and leads into turns three and four. J. Montgomery follows May past Hannagan and moves into second while Hannagan falls to third. Once in the lead May drove away to his first career All Star win over J. Montgomery, Hannagan and Ward. Greg Wilson did awesome job working the top of the track after starting 15th and he finished fifth ahead of T. Montgomery, Jerrod Hull, Dunn, Kinser and Jacobs.
The Crown Battery heat fell to Chad Kemenah, the B&B Products heat went to Wilson, the Engler Machine and Tool heat was won by Ricky Stenhouse and the TP Wings heat fell to Johnson. Tim Moss won the Outerwears Pre-filters C Main. The United Aluminum Window Sales & Consulting B Main fell to Jeremy Campbell and Johnson also captured the Haulmark Dash. Lee Dunn was the Huggins Cams Fast Time qualifier.
