FREMONT, OH -- John Ivy scored an impressive win Tuesday night at Fremont Speedway in the Haulmark All Star sprint car 40 lap Ohio Speedweek feature sponsored by Coors Beer. After taking the lead from early leader Lee Jacobs on lap 25, Ivy led the rest of the way for his first All Star win of the season over Greg Wilson. He also became the third different Speedweek winner this week. Ivy earned a $500 bonus from Kear's Speed Shop for winning with the track spec Goodyear right rear tire.

"Lee Jacobs had me worried, then about halfway through the race I finally found the middle groove," Ivy stated. He then thanked Sonny's Machining and Welding, Kistler Engines, Pro-shocks and his car owners Sid and Beth Eikelberry for their support. "Man this is awesome," he concluded.

Jacobs and Ivy started on the front row with Wilson and Todd Heller making up row two. Jacobs bolted out to a strong lead, with Ivy trailing in second. Wilson held third with Haudenschild in fourth. By the halfway point Ivy reeled Jacobs back in through heavy lapped traffic, and the leaders were nose to tail. Ivy kept right on Jacobs, and used his Fremont experience to make the winning pass by diving under Jacobs to lead lap 25. Ivy was clearly the fastest car on the track, and pushed out to a huge lead.

Wilson came on strong at the end of the race, going high around Jacobs to take second on lap 35, but he trailed Ivy by a half lap at the end. Jacobs was third at the end ahead of Jac Haudenschild, Heller, ninth starter Kelly Kinser, last starter David Harrison and Byron Reed. Mark Keegan ended up ninth and Dale Blaney was tenth.

"Hopefully things are coming together for us," Wilson said after his runnerup finish. "The American Racer Tires are coming around. John Ivy is tough here, so congratulations to him and his team."

"We were really good at the start. I'm just not as good in the middle as John Ivy is at this race track, " Jacobs said after finishing third in the Burmeister No. 16. "At the end the car just faded away."

The Crown Battery heat fell to Brock Mayes, the B&B Products heat went to Jesse Hockett, the Engler Machine and Tool heat was won by David Harrison and the TP Wings heat fell to Rob Chaney. Caleb Griffith won the Outerwears Pre-filters C Main and Craig Mintz won the University of Northwestern Ohio B Main.
