All Star Sprint Race Results - ELDORA Speedway, Rossburg, OH - Sat. 5/15/99 By Scott Hall
ROSSBURG, OH - All Star points leader Kenny Jacobs led wire to wire and held off a hard charge by Joey Saldana at the end to win his 18th career Eldora Speedway All Star sprint 30-lap feature Saturday night on $10 general admission night. Byron Reed ended up third. "It wasn’t easy," Jacobs recalled. "When Joey Saldana’s behind you it’s not going to be easy. I knew exactly what was going to happen on that last lap. But the Eagle chassis, Goodyear, Kriner-Chevy engine car worked so good it took off like a bullet on that last start. Les and Lynda Stewart started helping me the last week or so and this is Les’s motor here tonight and I think this is the first one he’s ever won at Eldora and I’m so happy to get it for him." Jacobs drives his own machine, wrenched by Barry Jackson and Lee Jacobs. Once Dean Jacobs dropped out of second with mechanical problems on lap ten, Saldana, who started sixth, ran second the rest of the way. "We were pretty good. I wish we could have got into lapped traffic," Saldana revealed when asked about his last lap slide job try on Jacobs. "You can’t do it (pass) in just a lap. You need to work on him pretty good to get by him." Kenny Jacobs started on the ButlerBuilt Motorsports Equipment Hot Seat pole position for the 15 mile run with his brother Dean alongside. K. Jacobs shot into the lead on the initial green with Dean in tow. Kenny stretched his advantage as third starting Reed held third ahead of Saldana and Butch Schroeder. K. Jacobs held his lead and even stretched it in lapped traffic, running the high groove only inches from Eldora’s concrete wall. Saldana got Reed for third on lap ten just as D. Jacobs fell by the wayside with engine problems, so the order was Kenny, Saldana, Reed and Schroeder when a lap 12 yellow appeared for a stalled Kasey Kahne in turn four. Jacobs rocketed away on the restart, with Saldana trying to stay close but to no avail. The action for fifth was heating up among Ed Lynch Jr., and Paul McMahan, as Lynch tried to get around Schroeder for fourth. Lynch took fourth on lap 16 as Kenny motored away with a half a lap lead on Saldana. Now Jac Haudenschild moved in on Schroeder, and the pair waged war side by side as did McMahan and Nier for eighth. Tenth place runner Dale Blaney broke his front end and stopped on the track on lap 21 for another caution with the order Kenny, Saldana, Reed, Lynch, Schroeder, Haudenschild, Frankie Kerr and Nier. On this restart, Saldana stayed within striking distance of Jacobs and both ran high, up against the wall. Schroeder repassed Lynch following the restart, then Haudenschild passed Lynch for fifth on lap 26. Ninth place McMahan stopped on the track with a flat tire on lap 29, setting up a green-white-checkered dash to the finish line. Saldana dove under Jacobs going into turn one following the restart cone, getting beside Kenny, but he didn’t have enough momentum to make the lead pass. Jacobs drove on to a win by two seconds over Saldana, with Reed third and Lynch fourth. Haudenschild exploded a right rear on the last lap, failing to finish and dropping him form a third place finish and Schroeder also had problems on the last lap, stopping on the track also as the checkered flew. That put Nier fifth with Kerr sixth and Paulus finished seventh, earning the "Team Simpson Racing Lucky Seven" award. The top ten was rounded out by Jerrod Hull, who started 15th, Danny Smith and McMahan. "My car was great in the beginning," third place finisher Reed said. "We have a new Kistler motor and it was really driving forward, bus as we went ion it got a little loose, but it still wasn’t too bad." The United Expressline heat fell to Shepard, the Southwest Expressline heat to Chad Kemenah, the Southwest Glass heat was won by Frankie Kerr and the United Specialties heat went to Haudenschild. Butch Schroeder won the Commercial Truck & Trailer Dash with Nick Naber the United Expressline B Main winner while Saldana was the Red Devil Brakes fast qualifier. Eldora’s fans donated $2,702 to injured driver Kevin Huntley during intermission when sprint drivers went through the stands to take up a collection for the driver injured here earlier this season.
