Haulmark All Star Sprint Results - East Bay Raceway Park - Thu. 2/13/03 By Andrew Barman GIBSONTON, FL - The All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Haulmark Trailers were once again ready to put the pedal to the metal at the East Bay Raceway Park for the 27th Annual Winter Nationals Thursday night. All 42 drivers returned to race track for a chance to win $4,000 in the 25-lap A-Main event. At the end of the night Danny Lasoski became the fifth different winner in five All Star races this season.
On the pole of the 25-lap A-Main was Greg Hodnett out of Memphis, Tennessee and on the outside front row was Fred Rahmer. When the green flew, Rahmer jumped out to the early lead with Terry McCarl and Greg Hodnett in tow. McCarl looked underneath the leader Rahmer on lap two and was able to get around him on the exit of turn two. The first yellow flag of the night came out for the 77 of Lance Dewease as he spun in the middle of turn one and two on lap five. McCarl jumped back out into the lead and was running away with the race. On lap 16, McCarl was in heavy lapped traffic and Lasoski, who was now in second, was closing in on McCarl for the lead. On lap 19, Lasoski got around the 24T of McCarl to take over the lead in turn two. Lapped traffic played a big part once again in the outcome of this race as Lasoski was able to pick up the second night feature win in the Home Depot, Tony Stewart owned number 20.
Lasoski said about his running down and passing McCarl on the inside in between turns one and two, "Terry was running a really good race, but sometimes it's better to be running second." Then he added, "Paul Kistler built this Mopar new for Volusia and we have been fine tuning it every race." The Dude has his motor home parked at Daytona and has been making the 30 minute airplane commute every day with Friday being his IROC race. Crew chief Jimmy Carr indicated he made no changes on the car all night long.
Second was Terry McCarl, third was Greg Hodnett, fourth Jeff Shepard, fifth was Tim Shaffer after starting 21st at the start of the race, sixth went to Craig Dollansky, seventh was Shane Stewart, eighth was Dean Jacobs, ninth was Chad Kemenah, and rounding out the top ten was Dale Blaney.
Runnerup McCarl was proud of the way his five-year old Wesmar engine with Brodix Spec Heads performed against these guys.
"I thought the Pennsylvania contingent was strong tonight, but we didn't come home with a win. Driving in so much traffic, those guys just ate me up. I could run the bottom except for turns three and four," third place Hodnett related.
"The Dude" Danny Lasoski picked up the Huggins Cams Fast Time Award with a time of 11.703. The Crown Battery heat race number 1 went to Brian Ellenberger, as Craig Dollansky picked up the B&B Products heat race number 2, Engler Machine & Tool heat race number 3 went to Jason Johnson in the HTI #22, and the TP Wings heat race number 4 saw "The Steel City Outlaw" Tim Shaffer picking up the win.
