Hannagan again at Eldora - 8/4/05 By Scott Hall ROSSBURG, OH - Randy Hannagan made it two wins in a row Thursday night at Eldora Speedway in the Haulmark All Star sprint car 30 lap A main feature. The event kicked off the Mopar Thunder weekend at Eldora on "A Salute to Kenny Jacobs" night. The win was also Hannagan's third career Eldora All Star win. A late race caution saved the victory for the Pittsboro, Indiana driver as Chad Kemenah had passed him for the lead, but a caution nullified the pass. "It was bad for him but good for me," Hannagan said of the late race caution. "I didn't think we had anything for him after he got by since my tires were blistered pretty bad. I just tried to run where the moisture was and take care of my tires. I was waiting for him to go by again and he never did." (More)

Glen Stewart, longtime wrench for Sammy Swindell, has accepted a similar position with Randy Hannagan's #1x. Hannagan was previously doing the tuning himself, while also piloting the THR #1x. Stewart, from Memphis, TN. is a hardworking mechanic that has knowledge of virtually every dirt track in the United States. The pairing should be a big positive for the former King of California's team.

I wont be able to run the Thanksgiving races or Australia this year, but right now Im just hoping this thing will be healed up in enough time to start the beginning of next season. ...Been in alot of therapy now and I have a bone stimulator machine that I'm using to help build up calcium in the leg which is supposed to help rebuild the bone that is missing from where that fragments were removed."
