FREMONT, OH - Dale Blaney was on cruise control Thursday night at Fremont Speedway in the Haulmark All Star sprint car 40 lap Ohio Speedweek feature. His third win of the week in round five of the 22nd annual Speedweek was run in front of a standing room only crowd and came in wire-to-wire fashion.

"We qualified 11th and were lucky enough to start on the front row. I don't know if we could have won from 11th or not," Blaney stated from victory lane. "Tom and Fritz Andrews do a great job with the car along with George Fisher." His winning Maxim featured a Fisher engine under the hood.

Starting from the pole, Blaney rocketed out to an immediate lead, followed by Bobby Clark and Rob Chaney. Clark and Jeremy Campbell both disposed of Chaney in the first two laps and began trying to keep Blaney in sight.

Blaney built a half straightway lead over Clark and Campbell, who were dueling back and forth for second. Once a pair of yellows on laps eight and ten were cleaned up, Blaney again set the pace. Kelly Kinser, who started sixth in the Rotochopper 4K, was now fourth and put Campbell in his sights.

Blaney, once in lapped traffic, kept his advantage over Clark.

After the halfway mark John Ivy was the man on the move as Tuesday's feature winner began to pass cars. He started 14th and was 19th on lap 23 and seventh by lap 30. Kinser took third from Campbell on lap 35, but he could not catch Clark for second.

As the laps wound down, Blaney cruised through lapped traffic and Clark began eating into the leader's advantage, but Blaney still won by half a lap at the checkered. Kinser rode home third with Campbell holding on for fourth. Chaney rode home fifth with Ivy moving into sixth at the end. Ninth starter Tim Hunter came in seventh and Greg Wilson, moving into the Andy James No. 72 for the A Main, started last and moved steadily through the pack for eighth. Danny Smith started 23rd and finished ninth ahead of Brock Mayes.

"Andy Potter has the car real nice right now. He told me to just be patient and it would come around," hometown driver Clark said after finishing second. "I wish we had ten more laps because it was really hooking up at the end. I got tied up behind lapped cars for about five laps and it really killed me."

"We were tight all race, then it freed up at the end. I'm tired of looking at that 72 in front of me," Kinser said with a smile after his third place run. "We may not be running fast here but we put on a good show, running side by side," he concluded.

The Crown Battery heat fell to Lee Jacobs, the B&B Products heat went to Andrew Palker, the Engler Machine and Tool heat was won by Craig Mintz and the TP Wings heat fell to John Ivy. Brandon Martin won the Outerwears Pre-filters C Main and Tim Hunter won the University of Northwestern Ohio B Main. Bill Rose captured the Haulmark Dash and Kinser was the Huggins Cams Fast Time qualifier.
