Robbie Storer in Limited Late Model Sportsman at Auburndale.

By Larry Vergon

Auburndale, FL: Robbie Storer, also celebrating his wedding anniversary, won his first feature of the season in the 25 lap Limited Late Model Sportsman event Saturday night with a exciting drive through the field in the No. 07. 18 cars started the feature, with Westley Bass in the No. 63, and Ray Cuzzone in the No. 97, on the front row. The race was a learning experience for everyone, as even the slightest mistake cost a position. Cuzzone and Bass battled for the early lead, with Cuzzone finally making the move into first. Dave Dunkin then showed his experience with a pass of Bass to take second at lap 10, and set sail after Cuzzone. Robbie Storer was working his way toward the front, battling past R. J. Romano, in the No. 18, and Mitch Hawk Jr. in the No. 17. An incident involving Ollie Harbin in the No. 65 and David Hart Jr. in the No. 20, left Hart with significant front end damage and out of the race. Harbin was able to continue and came back to finish fifth. On the restart; Cuzzone, Dunkin and Storer were in a battle for the lead, with Storer making the right moves to get by both drivers and lead the remainder of the race. Dunkin was able to get around Cuzzone and appeared to be lining up Storer for a last lap shoot out, but pulled into the infield with two laps to go, done for the night. Cuzzone finished second, Bart Weatherford was third in the No. 1 and Richard Elkins Jr. was fourth in the No. 55. Elkins Jr. and Bass won the heat races.

In another wild Modified Mini Stock feature, 26 cars took the green, with Mike Lawhorn starting on the pole in the No. 44, and leading 24 and 3/4 of the 25 laps. The action was fast and furious behind him, as several drivers took turns putting pressure on Lawhorn for the lead. Eugene Davidson, in the No. 5, worked his way through the field from his 18th starting position to be the last driver to run second to Lawhorn, with Jay Kaminski, in the No. 7, in third, after starting the event in 24th. As the leaders entered the fourth turn on the last lap, Lawhorn's car got loose, and Davidson, Kaminski, Gary Brown, and Don Ezell drove by to the checkered flag. Davidson won his first feature of the season, with Kaminski second, Gary Brown third in the No. 52 (up from 21st), Don Ezell fourth in the No. 25 (up from 25th), and Lawhorn fifth. Davidson and Shawn Williams, in the No. 73, won their heats.

The Street Stock 25 lap feature was won by Steve Ware in his No. 95. Ware started the race outside the third row and had to hold off several challenges along the way. Michael King, in the No. 96, used the outside groove to get to the front and was side by side with Ware for several laps, until losing an engine and spinning in his own fluids. Jason Bennet was also running the high groove in his No. 5, and challenged Ware at the end for the win. Dave Williamson brought the No. 12 home third, followed by Dale Poff in the No. 0, and James Wright III in the No. 56. Heats were won by Kenny Wingate Jr. in the No. 9 and Poff.

In the V8 Pure Stock 15 lap feature, Dustin Breeden raced his No. 80 through the field from the 15th starting position to take his first feature win of the season, as 24 cars took the green. Troy Lacey was second in the No. 92, followed by Greg Bacon in No. 60 (up from 22nd), Carl Thompson in the No. 75 (up from 19th), and Johnny Vaughn in the No. 77 (up from 17th). Heat winners were Dustin Breeden and Lee Hawkins in the No. 36.

The Pure Stock 4 Cylinder 15 lap feature went to Randy King, for his second feature win of the season. King, in the No. 75, started the race in 13th and had to scramble to get to the front. Jeremy Hodnett started his No. 95 on the pole and led many laps before giving way to King near the end. Mark Soule started 12th and finished third in the No. 76, followed by No. 16, Chris Narramore, who started 15th, and Matt Craig in the No. 56, who started 10th. Heat wins went to Soule and Joe Thomas, in the No. 25.

The Legends cars invaded Auburndale Speedway for their first visit of the season, with an autograph session held at intermission. Andy Logan won the feature event, followed by Jimmy Walker, David Froehlich, Jr., Brad Sanders, and Jim Rogero. Heat wins went to Logan and Sanders.

This coming Saturday, March 27th, will feature the Sara Limited Late Models in a 100 lap feature, plus our regular lineup of Limited Late Model Sportsman, Modified Mini Stocks, Street Stocks, Four Cylinder Pure Stocks, and Pure Stock V-8's.
