AUBURNDALE SPEEDWAY PRESS RELEASE FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

11-8-97 Carroll, Hight and Kaminski Winners in Auburndale Speedway Action By Gene Crane Auburndale, FL- Don Carroll scored the 25 lap Late Model Sportsman feature win Saturday night at Auburndale Speedway. Carroll took the lead early from Eddie Rogers and cruised to an easy win with Rogers maintaining the second spot. Richard Scruggs was third, followed by point leader Ray Cuzzone. Billy Jones rounded out the top five. Cuzzone's 42 point lead in the championship point battle over Ollie Harbin all but clinches his first ever division title with only one night remaining in the points counting season. Harbin is solid in the second spot and rookie contender Tony Poff will likely complete the season with third place honors. Robert Hight went wire to wire in the 25 lap Street Stock feature to close the point gap for fifth in the Street Stock points to 15. Westley Bass started 12th and worked his way to the second position at the checkered flag but was unable to keep his championship hopes alive. Chuck Steele finished third, Travis Roland was fourth and closed to within 6 points of Hight. Michael King brought his mount home fifth, in spite of a practice crash, he was able to clinch the Street Stock championship for 1997. Bass will finish in the second spot for the season and David Williamson has a lock on third. The fourth, fifth and sixth spots are still undecided and only 21 points separating Keith Schoonover in fourth and Travis Roland in sixth. Jay Kaminski again won the Modified Mini Stock 25 lap feature in his Ford Courier pick-up truck. Donnie Howell upped his best race of the season with a second place run ahead of Tony Davidson in third. Kevin Boykin and James Wood rounded out the top five. The season championship appeared to be in the tight grasp of Randy Storer from early in the season, but is still undecided as Lee Davis has closed to 29 points behind Storer. Don Ezell and Bobby Judah are third and fourth, separated by 23 markers and Kaminski leads Wood by 13 for fifth. Daniel Clough won both heat and feature for the Pure Stock V8 challengers to secure his third place position in the point standings. James Wright III finished second to tighten the championship contest to 12 points. Randy King was third ahead of point leader Kim Scheffler-Hays. Bob Gorsuch finished in fifth. Jim West, who also won his heat earlier in the evening, won the 4 Cylinder Pure Stock feature. Wayne Weaver finished second and moves to within 6 points of second in the points battle. Matthew Craig, Dave Fair and Hubert Baker completed the top five. Daryl Habbershaw has clinched the championship and Greg Case finds Weaver just six points behind in third. The final points counting night of the season is this Saturday night with all divisions in action. The final night of racing for 1997 at Auburndale Speedway will be November 22nd.
