4-12-97 Paul Schrein in Legend Win At Auburndale Speedway by Gene Crane Auburndale, FL Paul Schrein Jr. outlasted a 31 car showing of Florida Legends to claim the top spot this Saturday night at Auburndale Speedway. Schrein inherited the lead from Jimmy Walker when Walker’s car slowed and Schrein went on to the win over Andy Logan, David Logan, Eddie LePine and Jon Harney. Early leader Dave Froelich and second place car Ed Brown withdrew during the opening laps to finish at the bottom of the 24 car starting field. Rockin’ Rodney Davis could do no better than second place in the Figure 8 feature as Denny Myers Sr. drove his Mustang to the win. Charlie Myers led much of event which thrilled the fans with some exciting action at the infield crossover but dropped out late in the going with a flat left rear tire. The Denny Myers Mustang was the first of eight Mustangs to finish in the first nine. Davis and his Camaro was the lone Chevy nameplate in the top five. The Late Model Sportsman cars had their final tune-up before next Saturdays 100 lap grind. Lee Davis would score the victory over the second place battle between Thomas Poff and Bud Bronson. Ollie Harbin and Ray Cuzzone rounded out the top five at the end of the 25 lap sprint. The points battle tightened a bit as leader Howard O’Steen fell to the wayside with a broken fuel pickup in the fuel cell of his car and Tony Poff , second in points saw his second place finishing streak come to an end with his seventh place run. Ed Hill started from the pole and led every lap in route to the win in Street Stock feature action. Jason Bennett gave chase but was unable to mount a successful run at Hill for the finish. Jeff Warren, Bud Bronson and Westley Bass completed the top five at the end of 25 laps. Kenny Uhl made it a clean sweep of Modified Mini Stock action by winning his heat starting from the pole and taking the checkers in the 25 lap feature. Don Ezell, who trailed Uhl to the line in heat race action, would also have to settle for second in the feature. Ezell had to work his way through traffic and ran out of laps to challenge Uhl at the finish. Randy Storer, Lee Davis and Jason Rendell finished third through fifth. Rendell’s fifth place run was a bit of a surprise after he was involved in a mid-race crash with Donnie Howell. Howell’s machine rode up and onto the left front portion of Rendell’s car. Rendell was able to continue dispite losing much of the left side sheet metal. V8 Pure Stock racing saw Kim Scheffler-Hays lead the field to the stripe. Hays would finish with a half straight advantage over her closest competitor Johnny Vaughn who finished second. 4Cylinder Pure Stock action saw Scott Taylor dominate for the win with Dusty Robinson finishing second. Buddy Smith took the honors in Super MiniCup racing In an effort to assist Renee Whittington, who was injured last Saturday night April 5th, many of the drivers collected donations in the grandstands and pit areas with several donating their winnings of this evening to Renee. A special recognition of Johel Chaves, Charles Deaton, Jan Mason and Keith Schoonover for their generosity and concern. We are happy to report that Renee was released from the hospital and appears to be doing well. Racing this coming Saturday night April 19th features all of our regular divisions with the Late Model Sportsman cars attacking the quarter mile for 100 lap grind for $1500 to win. The added purse is expected to draw several Florida favorites to add their entries to the very competitive division. Just a reminder concerning the April 26th date; Auburndale Speedway will not be racing on Saturday night April 26th due to the Hooters Cup event at USA International Speedway. The track will open the pit gates at 11:00 am Sunday April 27th for racing action. Grandstand gates will open at 12:00 noon and racing gets underway at 1:30 PM. The Sunday event lineup includes the regular divisions with the exception of Late Model Sportsman and adds the TQ Midgets and Pro Figure 8 cars to the schedule.
