Haulmark All Star Sprint Results - Eldora Speedway - Sat. 4/24/04 By Scott Hall
ROSSBURG, OH - A hurricane blew through Eldora Speedway Saturday night. Randy "Hurricane" Hannagan won the Haulmark All Star sprint car 30 lap feature, recording his first career All Star win. Hannagan started sixth, took second with 12 laps in and passed leader Danny Smith for the win on lap 19. His THR Racing Hurricane Chassis utilized Gaerte power. Hannagan thanked his brother Terry from victory lane, and indicated that without his support this win would not have been possible.
The first attempt to start the main saw 18th starting rookie Brock Mayes take a flip in turn one trying to avoid Jeremy Campbell, who brushed the turn one concrete. Barry Ruble was also involved. Jimmy Stinson and rookie Jon Agan brought the field down for the second start, with Stinson jumping into the lead in the Stinson Concrete Eagle. Agan held second until lap seven when fourth starting Smith went by with a turn one slide job. Once in the lead Smith began stretching his advantage over Stinson, Hannagan and Jac Haudenschild, who was in a fierce battle with Chad Kemenah.
By lap 11 Hannagan was challenging Stinson for second, and he took that spot a lap later. Following a lap 12 caution period, Smith pushed out to a big lead over Hannagan, and fourth place Haudenschild. Jac then broke a bolt in the cam shaft which caused him to lose his power steering as he was riding high full throttle in turn two. Then he shut the car down and coasted to his pit area.
By the halfway mark, Smith was approaching lapped traffic again with Hannagan second, Stinson third and Kemenah fourth. When Smith caught the tail of the field, he was boxed in by the lapped car of Kent Wolters, allowing Hannagan to blast by and lead lap 19. Hannagan pulled away from Smith, but with only a handful of laps remaining, Smith began reeling in the leader again. Smith was poised to pass Hannagan to re-take the lead on lap26, but the lapped car of Ryan Coniam prevented Smith from making his move.
Once Smith fell back, the victory was all Hannagan's, as he won by two car lengths. Points leader Kemenah was third behind Smith, with Stinson fourth and 17th starting Jeremy Campbell fifth, earning the Fisher Performance Hard Charger award. Next across were Rob Chaney, Bill Rose, Agan, Wilson and Coniam. The Crown Battery heat fell to Stinson, the B&B Products heat went to Rob Chaney and the Engler Machine and Tool heat was won by Mayes. Kemenah captured the Haulmark Dash and Randy Hannagan was the Huggins Cams Fast Time qualifier.
