All Star Sprint Results - Attica Raceway Park
By Scott Hall
ATTICA, OH - Seventeenth starting Kelly Kinser ran down Kenny Jacobs with two laps remaining Wednesday night at Attica Raceway Park to win the All Star sprint 40-lap feature. The second win of the season for Kinser was worth $5,000 for the 11th annual Brad Doty Classic. The event was broadcast live over the internet on RSBN.net and Kinser became the 11th different Doty Classic winner in 11 years. KOT Trucking put up $500 for the driver passing the most cars in the A Main, and this also went to Kinser. "I thought if I could get up to seventh or eighth I'd be pretty tickled," Kinser replied when asked if he thought he had a chance to win tonight. "I really struggled for a long time, but I had my car just right. I'd have never dreamed we'd win it. We finally got one at Attica tonight." Kinser's winning machine is the Kinser Timber Stealth chassis with Gaerte-Chevrolet power and rode on American Racer tires. Kevin Huntley started on the ButlerBuilt Hot Seat pole with Jacobs alongside. Jacobs pushed his Jacobs-Honecker Motorsports Eagle to a nice lead in the high groove, with Huntley second and Rodney Duncan third. Duncan took over second on lap five before David Harrison spun out of sixth spot on lap six for the first yellow flag. Jacobs led again over Duncan, Huntley and Todd Gracey as the battle for second heated up. Lap 10 saw it three wide for second among Duncan, Huntley and Gracey, with Duncan keeping the spot as the trio fought fiercely for the runner-up spot. With 15 laps down, Kinser began making his move in the bottom groove and was up to eighth. Huntley took second from Duncan on lap 18, and actually got beside Jacobs on lap 21 with a slide job pass try for the lead. Jacobs repelled his advance and pulled out to a one car length advantage as Gracey, Duncan and Huntley fought for second. Gracey finally took over second in the bottom groove and was reeling in Jacobs when disaster struck. Gracey got sideways in turn three on lap 27, and Jeff Shepard, who had just joined the battle for second after starting 14th, bumped wheels with Gracey, sending Gracey spinning. Shepard kept going and Kinser dove into the infield to avoid the mess. The restart lineup was Jacobs, Duncan, Shepard, Huntley and Kinser. Duncan and Shepard battled for second behind Jacobs once the race restarted. Shepard took over second and Kinser was up to third on lap 31. Duncan took back second with Kinser third as Shepard began to fade when the final caution appeared on lap 35. It was now a five lap run to the finish. Jacobs jumped out in the high groove when the green dropped, and Kinser moved under Duncan for second. He got to within a car length on lap 37 and dove under Jacobs in turn four as the pair passed side-by-side on lap 38, with Kinser keeping the lead into turn one, and the race was his. Jacobs tried to go extra high on lap 39 to regain some ground, but Kinser pulled away to win by six car lengths. "He passed me so fast I didn't even know he was there," Jacobs said of Kinser. "When he went by I knew it was over. There was no catching him." Duncan held on for third and Huntley in fourth earned the TW Metals $100 nightly bonus. "Kelly is unbelievable at doing what he does. I have no idea how he does it," Duncan recalled afterward. "I just wish he wouldn't make it look so easy when he passes us," the pilot of the Harrison Trucking No. 22 concluded. Phil Gressman was fifth, followed by Chad Kemenah. Eric Hysong finished seventh, winning the Team Simpson Racing Lucky Seven award. Jerrod Hull, John Ivy and Byron Reed filled in the top ten. The $100-to-win L&L Pavement heats went to Jerrod Hull, Chad Kemenah, Kelly Kinser and Greg Wilson. John Ivy won the Georgia Marketing & Promotions B Main. Gressman captured the Commercial Truck & Trailer Dash and his fast time was worth $300 from Ramsey Trucking. Recovering driver Rusty McClure was also on hand, and reported he is back home and taking physical therapy two days a week and is feeling great. He thanked the fans for all their cards and letters. The 15 lap limited late model main fell to Bill Clapp over John Mayes, Steve Sabo, Chris Smith and Bill Featheringill. <pre> Time Trials: 1. Phil Gressman, Reidling 9, 11.792; 2.
