CAMARGO, IL -- In order to assure a full starting field of sprint cars, the Haulmark All Star Circuit of Champions and Lernerville Speedway have added a non-qualifier's race to the May 7 All Star make-up program.
The Speedway's Haulmark All Star Dave & Earl Bauman Memorial Sprint Car Series feature from Labor Day weekend 2003 will be made up as a part of Lernerville's regular racing program on Friday night May 7. Many drivers already are locked into the feature from the 2003 preliminary events. Since several pre-qualified drivers do not have rides this season, several feature starting spots are open. These spots will be filled by a non-qualifier's race (or more than one race if the number of cars on hand warrants), with the top finishers advancing to the All Star feature. These non-qualifiers events are open to all sprint car competitors, and will be lined up according to a pill draw.
All Star members participating in the Lernerville program will be awarded 2004 show-up points for the evening's activities.
Drivers already locked into the feature in starting order include: 1. Rod George, George 4; 2. Dale Blaney, Andrews 72b; 3. Ed Lynch, Jr., Lynch 2L; 4. Chad Kemenah, Harble 15k; 5. Chad Hill, Shearer 44; 6. Jamie Smith, Smith 5G; 7. Jeremy Campbell, Campbell 10c; 8. Byron Reed, B&S 5; 9. Bill Rose, Rose 6; 10. Stevie Smith, Smith 19; 11. Eric Smith, Smith 7z; 12. Scott Bonnell, Bonnell 3; 13. Ralph Engel, Kubick 00; 14. Bob Bennett, Mickle 3; 15. Dan Shetler, Shetler 7K; 16. Kevin Schaeffer, Schaeffer 9; 17. Ryan Coniam, Grove 70; 18. Phil Gressman, Robenalt 98. Barry Ruble and Arnie Kent are also in the starting lineup as promoter's options.
Drivers participating last year who qualified for the main but are not expected to be on hand May 7 are Shane Stewart, Jeff Shepard, Erin Crocker, Jason Johnson, Kenny Jacobs and Dean Jacobs.
Following the Lernerville feature event, the All Stars move to the Fremont, OH Speedway Saturday night May 8 for a full All Star racing program.
