All Star Raceweek 2005 A Success
CAMARGO, IL -- The 23rd annual All Star Sprint Raceweek for 2005 saw four different winners in six races. Kelly Kinser was crowned the Raceweek champion, earning the Keco Cup and $2,000.
The opener at Eldora Speedway scheduled for Saturday was washed out, as was round two scheduled for Tuesday at Raceway 7 in Conneaut, OH. Thus the opener was on Sunday at Attica Raceway Park, with Bobby Clark leading the first 39 laps before Greg Wilson used a slide job pass coming off turn four on the final lap to win by the length of his front bumper. Byron Reed ended up third ahead of Kelly Kinser and Mark Keegan.
Round two moved to the Muskingum County Speedway in Zanesville on Monday, with Danny Smith getting past race leader Chad Kemenah with only two laps remaining to record his first Raceweek win of 2005. Kemenah ended up second and Randy Hannagan after starting 13th, got by Reed on the last lap for third. Reed was fourth ahead of Kelly Kinser, Kerry Madsen, Kenny Jacobs, Dale Blaney, Dean Jacobs and Jeremy Campbell.
Wednesday's race three was set for Sharon Speedway in Hartford, where Kemenah returned the favor to Smith by passing him with only five laps to go to take the win. Kelly Kinser also moved past Smith late in the race and a last ditch effort to get by Kemenah fell just short at the finish line. Behind Kinser it was Smith ahead of Blaney, Randy Hannagan, who started 15th, Reed, Kenny Jacobs, John Ivy, Chad Blonde and Ricky Logan.
After a half-inch of rain fell earlier in the day, Fremont Speedway was lightning fast for Thursday's race that ended up being shortened three laps by rain. Chad Kemenah avoided a pair of spinouts right in front of him and narrowly squeezed through the stopped cars to become the first Raceweek repeat winner of 2005. After Mike Linder took the early lead from Kemenah, Reed took control and had things well in hand until Kemenah got by again for the win. With Reed challenging the leader again, a final caution on lap 37 forced the event to be called complete when rains fell. Reed was second and Haudenschild ended up fourth behind Jeremy Campbell, with Kenny Jacobs fifth, followed by Kelly Kinser, Mark Keegan, Kevin Huntley, Danny Smith and Dale Blaney.
Friday's round five was contested on the high banks of Limaland Motorsports Park, where Jac Haudenschild held off a late race challenge from Greg Wilson for the win. Wilson utilized the thigh groove to pull right up on Haudenschild's rear bumper, but a caution flag flew, making Wilson's move a moot point. The last two laps saw Wilson give it another valiant try, but Haudenschild was able to hold him off for a narrow win, becoming the 14th All Star race winner of 2005 in 19 races. Blaney ended up third ahead of Kemenah and Kelly Kinser. Dean Jacobs, Danny Smith, K. Jacobs, Byron Reed and Randy Hannagan completed the top ten finishers.
Greg Wilson led all but four laps Saturday night at K-C Raceway in the 40 lap Raceweek finale. His second win of the week was worth $10,000. Kenny Jacobs and Kelly Kinser waged a tremendous battle all race long for second with Jacobs earning that spot ahead of Kinser. Chad Kemenah was fourth and Smith was fifth with 19th starting Jac Haudenschild sixth. Dean Jacobs earned the Fisher Performance Hard Charger of the race award for coming from a provisional 25th place start to end up seventh. Dale Blaney was eighth, followed by Jeremy Campbell and Randy Hannagan.
Kinser won the Raceweek championship and the Keco Cup, worth $2,000. Second in Raceweek was worth $1,000 in Keco product to Chad Kemenah with Danny Smith in third, earning $750. Paul May was the Keco Hard Luck winner for the week, worth an additional $750.
