KOKOMO, IN - Byron Reed finally got the money off his back and recorded his first career All Star sprint car feature Sunday night at Evans’ Kokomo Speedway. The victory was worth $5,000. "I’ve won USAC races," Reed recalled, standing by his B&S Racing, Kistler-Chevy powered Maxim. "But to win against these guys really means a lot." For the 40-lap A Main, Reed started fourth in the 24 car field and passed early leader Frankie Kerr on a fourth lap restart to take command. Kerr started on the ButlerBuilt Motorsports Equipment Hot Seat pole position and led until Kasey Kahne spun in turn three for the race’s first caution. Reed rode the rim on the tight quarter mile around Kerr to lead over Kerr, Kelly Kinser, Joey Saldana and Kenny Jacobs. Lap six saw a red flag unfurled for hometown driver Boston Reid, who flipped on the backstretch. Reid was not injured in the incident, but his Dr. Gale Kreppel No. 9 was done for the evening. Reed led on the restart ahead of Kerr, Kinser, Saldana, K. Jacobs and Mark Keegan. Dean Jacobs, who started ninth, was now up to seventh and making a move forward. He moved to sixth ahead of Randy Kinser and began to pressure his brother Kenny for fifth. After making the pass of his brother, Dean challenged Saldana for the fourth spot. On lap15, the pair made contact on the backstretch, with Dean making the pass and Saldana spinning. Meanwhile, two laps earlier, K. Kinser ducked under Kerr using the inside groove in turn one to snare second. This left the restart order behind the high groove flying Reed as Kinser, Kerr, D. Jacobs, Keegan, K. Jacobs and Rodney Duncan in the Harrison Trucking No. 22. Reed again lead on the restart, having a lapped car between himself and Kinser. But Kinser ducked under Reed inside turn two to take over the lead. Reed, however, regained his leader spot when the pair entered lapped traffic, and the race was his. Dean Jacobs ended up second in the Jr. Holbrook Motorsports Eagle after passing Kinser. "All in all, that was a lotta fun," Jacobs exclaimed afterward. Kinser ended up third in the Kinser Timber Stealth, relating, "I think I was a touch faster. I hit the water on the bottom of the track and it slowed me down." Kerr held on for fourth in Stan Shoff’s J&J, with 14th starter Duncan fifth and Keegan sixth. Tony Elliott finished seventh, ahead of Danny Smith, Kenny Jacobs and Saldana. The United Expressline heat fell to Boston Reid, the Southwest Expressline heat to Danny Smith, the Southwest Glass heat was won by Reed and the United Specialties heat went to Brian Ellenberger. K. Kinser won the Commercial Truck & Trailer Dash with Dean Jacobs the United Expressline B Main winner. K. Jacobs was the Red Devil Brakes fast qualifier over the 34 car field. Time Trials: 1.
