BARBERVILLE, FL - It was a homecoming of sorts Thursday night at Volusia Speedway Park in the All Star sprint season opening 20-lap feature for Dale Blaney. The Hartford, Ohio driver is a former All Star champion and won his first All Star main in several years, defeating Central Pa. veteran Lance Dewease in the process in the Mopar powered sprint car owned by his brother Dave Blaney. The machine now carries the familiar Blaney number 10, after being numbered 93 the past several seasons.

Dewease was the polesitter for the main, with Ronald Laney starting outside row one. Chad Kemenah and James Chesson comprised row two, with defending All Star champ Kenny Jacobs and fast timer Danny Lasoski in row three. Greg Hodnett and Greg Wilson started seventh and eighth, with Joey Saldana and Blaney in the fifth row.

The first lap saw mayhem erupt when Mike Wagner and Sean Michael got together and flipped hard, both leaving the ballpark. On the restart, another violent crash occurred, with Lasoski getting crossed up and flipping, collecting Greg Hodnett and Billy Wilburn. All drivers were okay in the two incidents.

The green finally reappeared with Dewease taking the lead over Laney, Kemenah and Blaney before another flip slowed the action. Kelly Kinser took an easy once-over, bringing out the red. He was able to restart on the tail of the field.

Blaney moved into second following the restart behind Dewease, putting Laney back to third. Blaney kept the pressure on Dewease’s machine, and on lap seven he slid past Dewease in turn four on the half-mile, taking command for good.

From that point on, it was a clean run to the checkered for Blaney, who won over Dewease, Laney and Chesson. Jeff Shepard started 14th and earned passing honors for the night, moving to fifth at the end with Kemenah, Saldana, Jacobs and 14th starter Danny Wood next. Rodney Duncan moved up from 15th starting spot to tenth at the finish.

With 56 cars on hand, the K-T Equipment heat went to Rodney Duncan, the JB Enterprise Racing Products heat to Danny Wood, the Crown Battery Heat to Tim Shaffer and the Engler Machine & Tool heat fell to Blaney with Jeff Shepard the other heat winner. Craig Dollansky won the Georgia Marketing & Promotions C Main and Greg Hodnett was the B Main winner. <pre> TIME TRIALS: 1. Danny Lasoski, Stewart 20, 13.409; 2.
