Haynes wins first UMP Late Model feature at Fredericktown
FREDERICKTOWN, Mo. -- (July 11, 2003) Danny Haynes turned aside numerous challenges from Kenny Rumble and Mike Hammerle to take home the UMP Late Model feature win Friday night at the Fredericktown Raceway.
Haynes looked as if he might be in a bit of trouble when Rumble started working the outside of the track midway through the 25-lap feature and had pulled even with him several times, but was never able to complete the pass. But following a late caution flag, Rumble got loose and spun out dropping him to fifth place and placing Hammerle into the second spot.
The remaining six laps featured Hammerle trying to slip inside to take away the top spot, but Haynes would have nothing to do with it as he sped away with the victory, his first at the Fredericktown Raceway.
Hammerle settled for second place with Charlie Savage third, Mike Abney fourth and Rumble fifth. Abney won the heat race with Haynes second and Rumble third. Haynes won the dash with Abney second and Rumble third. Joe Giesler of St. Mary, Mo. picked up an big win in the Modified class against an impressive group of drivers. For the second time in two weeks at the Fredericktown Raceway it was Giesler edging out Brent Thompson of Farmington for the win with Danny Resinger taking third, Joey Montgomery of Fredericktown (driving the #28K of Doc Sloan) was fourth and Tommy Worley Sr. of Farmington was fifth. They were followed by Kevin Hulsey, Kasey Burch, Eric Edgar, Mike Crader and Dean Resinger.

In the RAMS Mini Stock class, Rick Ruch of Perryville continued his winning streak by holding off the charge of Dave "The Wolf" Wofford of Farmington for the win. Wofford settled for second with Jon Paul Reando taking third, Jason Brewington fourth and Brian Cox fifth. They were followed by Shannon Burch, Wes Kintz, Mike Henderson, J.J. "Smurf" Johnson and Susan Stewart.
