BARBERVILLE, FL - Greg Hodnett led wire-to-wire in the All Star sprint 20-lap feature Thursday night at Volusia Speedway Park. It was the opening event for the All Stars’ 20th anniversary season, worth $3,000 to the Tennessee speedster now in his second season racing for the Apple Motorsports Chevrolet/Maxim team out of Pennsylvania. Hodnett got the jump on pole man Terry McCarl and survived a Lance Dewease lap 14 challenge to win the first 410 sprint car main of 1999. From victory lane, Hodnett thanked his owner Bob Stewart, sponsors and the All Stars for putting on the Florida Speedweeks series. The top five finishers in the A Main all rode aboard Hoosier tires. McCarl started on the ButlerBuilt Motorsports Equipment Hot Seat pole position with Hodnett alongside. Frankie Kerr and Lance Dewease gridded row two, with Danny Lasoski and Joey Saldana next. Dewease grabbed second on lap two, dropping McCarl to third. Tim Shaffer, Brian Ellenberger and Dean Jacobs were involved in a turn four crash on lap three to bring out a red. There were no injuries, but Shaffer's J&M Motorsports Cook car was destroyed, and Jacobs flipped. Hodnett was still on top over Dewease, McCarl and Kerr, stretching his advantage until he hit lapped traffic on lap nine. The halfway mark saw the order Hodnett, Dewease, McCarl, Kerr, Gary Wright, Lasoski, Jeff Shepard and Kelly Kinser. With heavy traffic ahead, Dewease was right on Hodnett’s back bumper, but he could not move the Walt Dyer Eagle past the leader. Freddie Rahmer stopped on the track on lap 18, bringing out the final caution. Rahmer was able to restart on the tail as Hodnett pulled away to win over Dewease and Kerr, who got past McCarl on lap 19 for third. McCarl was next, followed by Lasoski and Wright. Wright charged from 11th to fifth before losing the spot to Lasoski on the last lap. Shepard finished seventh, earning the "Team Simpson Racing Lucky Seven" award. Kinser, Billy Pauch and Saldana completed the top ten. The United Expressline heat fell to Pauch, the Southwest Expressline heat to Kevin Gobrecht, the Southwest Glass heat was won by P.J. Chesson and the United Specialties heat went to Wright. Paul McMahan was the United Expressline B Main winner and Bob Felmlee won the Georgia Marketing & Promotions C Main. Saldana was the Red Devil Brakes fast qualifier. Time Trials: 1. Joey Saldana, Mox 17, 14.219; 2. Danny Lasoski, Black 1, 14.248; 3. Lance Dewease, Dyer 461, 14.268; 4.
