'BULLET' TAKES CANANDAIGUA, HIS THIRD VICTORY IN NEW YORK By Richard Day CANANDAIGUA, NY (June 7) - Dave Blaney passed Danny Lasoski with 2 1/2 laps remaining to win the World of Outlaws' "A" Feature before a standing- room-only crowd at Canandaigua Speedway Wednesday. The victory, Blaney's third in the Skoal Outlaw Series' first four stops on its annual spring tour of New York, pushed him into second place in World of Outlaws the point standings. Mark Kinser, who entered the Canandaigua event only 21 points behind points leader Jac Haudenschild, was leading the Vivarin Dash with less than half a lap remaining when his right rear tire exploded. The #5M Wirtgen Maxim jerked to the right and flipped over the bank in turn three. Kinser's crew was unable to get the #5M ready for the main event, so he received only 75 show-up points and was passed in the point standings by Blaney and Lasoski. Lee Sanders replaced Mark in the "A" Feature lineup. Before his unfortunate crash, Mark received his ninth Ecowater Fast- Time Award of the year for circling Canandaigua's semi-banked, 1/2-mile oval in 15.452 seconds, an average speed of 116.490 m.p.h. Lasoski, the beneficiary of Kinser's crash, earned the right to start the main event on the pole by winning the Vivarin Dash. He burst into lead as the green flag fell in the "A" Feature, only to have outside polesitter Todd Shaffer pass him high in the second corner. Shaffer opened a six-car-length lead by the second lap, and took the high road into lapped traffic three laps later. As Haudenschild caught Lasoski, a three-car battle for the lead evolved in heavy lapped traffic during the 10th lap. Shaffer broke through a pack of backmarkers midway through the race and put a half-straightaway between himself and his closest pursuers. Three laps later, however, Shaffer took the high road around more heavy lapped traffic while "The Dude" drove the #47 Casey's General Stores Maxim into the lead in the low groove. At the same time, Blaney passed "The Wild Child" deep in the fourth corner for third place. "The Buckeye Bullet" reeled in Shaffer within two laps, and steered the #10 Vivarin J&J deep into turn four to take over the runner-up spot late in the 18th lap. Blaney caught Lasoski on the front straightaway two laps later, but fell behind as "The Dude" made a quick move around Sanders. Blaney challenged for the lead again in turn two the next time around, but was unable to pass George Suprick quickly. "The Buckeye Bullet" chased Lasoski for two laps before taking the lead deep in the second corner early in lap 23. "The Dude" was six car- lengths behind when Blaney took the checkered flag. Blaney also won a Skoal Outlaw Series "A" Feature at Canandaigua on June 5, 1991. Shaffer held off 14-time World of Outlaws champion Steve Kinser to finish third. Rounding out the top 10 in the main event were "The Wild Child," Billy Pauch, Stevie Smith, Fourth Snap-on Tools Hear Race winner Andy Hillenburg, Greg Hodnett and Jeff Swindell. Alan Cole received the Wells Lamont Hard Charger Award for driving his #17 Peanut Bowl J&J past 10 cars to finish 13th.
