(5-17-97) Outside groove heats up racing at Auburndale Speedway by Gene Crane Auburndale, FL - Jesse Hall driving his TMEC sponsored Chevelle picked up his first Street Stock win Saturday night at Auburndale Speedway. Hall started up front and took the lead at the drop of the green to lead every lap of the 25 lap feature. Several drivers through the night made the outside groove pay big dividends including second place finisher Westley Bass. Bass started deep in the pack but stubbornly worked the outside lane to work his way to the second spot by lap 15. Travis Roland, driving with a cast on his right arm as a result of a crash several weeks ago, challenged Hall early and eventually was shuffled back to finish third. Steve Ware and David Williamson completed the top five. Don Carroll won the 25 lap Late Model Sportsman feature over Richard Todd and Ollie Harbin. Carroll recently completed the car and has not been a regular competitor until several weeks ago. Todd was able to wrestle his Oldsmobile to second dispite the car's ill-handling characteristics. Jeff McCaw and Ray Cuzzone rounded out the top five. Feature winner from the previous week Kevin Ingram was knocked from competition for the night after he and Howard O'Steen tangled and crashed in turn four. O'Steen, the division point leader, was able to continue and eventually finished sixth in the feature. The Pure Stock V8 feature saw Kim Scheffler-Hays utilize the outside groove to gain the lead and then run away with the 15 lap feature. Second through fifth place finishers; Daniel Clough, James Wright, Ted Anderson and Rick Bacon; were all part of a race long pack of seven cars battling for the lead with Hays. Heat race action saw several cars eliminated for the night in a turn two accident caused by a blown engine in the Randy King car. King and Johnny Vaughn were out for the night however the cars of Tommy Dopson and James Wright would continue. Jay Kaminiski returned this week after exploding an engine during practice last Saturday to win the 25 lap Modified Mini Stock feature. With a brand new motor in his Ford Courier pickup, Kaminiski drove away from the field unchallenged. Kevin Boykin posted his second strong finish in a row by taking second. Lee Davis; point leader, Randy Storer; and previous week winner, Chuck Frazier completed the remainder of the first five. In other action during the evening, Hugh Williams won the Pure Stock 4 Cylinder feature over Doug Bowen and Larry Chumney II. Thomas North won the Super Mini Cup main and Sky Lungston wowed the fans by jumping his motorcycle over 10 cars, twice. Next Saturday night the Dwarf Cars and Kids Club will be joining the regular divisions for racing action. Figure 8 fans won't want to miss action on the 31st of May as the merchants of mayhem daredevil across the infield crossover. Grandstand gates open at 5 PM and racing starts at 7:15 PM.
