Haulmark All Star Sprint-NCRA Results - Tri-State Speedway - Sun. 5/18/03 By Scott Hall HAUBSTADT, IN - Dean Jacobs made it two wins in a row Sunday night at Tri-State Speedway in the Haulmark All Star sprint car-NCRA 40 lap feature. The driver of the Ray Pullins No. 29 earned $5,000 for his efforts on the ultra fast surface, dampened by a rain shower during time trials. Jacobs defeated NCRA points leader Brooke Tatnell by 10 car lengths.
Kenny Jacobs was on the pole for the start on the quarter mile oval, with Dean Jacobs alongside. Kenny jumped the original start, so the first row was penalized by Competition Director Jack Hewitt. This put the Jacobs brothers in the second row behind Lee Dunn and Kraig Kinser. Kinser shot into the lead when the green reappeared, and Kinser built a half straight lead on Tatnell by lap six. Dean moved into third past his brother on lap seven, but he was passed by Craig Keel for that spot a few laps later.
Kinser rubbed wheels with a lapped car on lap 11, causing a flat tire for the youngster who appeared headed to his first career All Star win. Kinser fixed the flat and restarted on the tail of the field with Tatnell now on top over Keel, Dean, Jason Johnson and Kenny. Danny Smith was now seventh after starting eighth and Jerrod Hull was eighth after starting 10th.
Jeff Shepard moved into the top ten following the restart after starting 12th. Dean moved to the top of the track, grabbing from second from Keel, with Tatnell still on top. The man on the move was now Johnson, who set quick time and started sixth in the Harrison Trucking No. 22. By lap 13 Johnson had gotten past Keel for third, and a lap later got past Tatnell, who had just lost the lead to D. Jacobs. By lap 22 the running order was Jacobs, Johnson, Keel in third again after passing Tatnell, K. Jacobs fifth followed by Danny Smith and Jerrod Hull.
Johnson took the lead from Jacobs going down the backstretch, but bounced off the lapped car of Tom Busch while making the pass. Jacobs regained the lead as Johnson stopped with a flat tire and suspension damage, ending his impressive run. Dean was in first for the restart ahead of Tatnell and Keel. Two laps later K. Jacobs used the high groove to get third place, with Smith utilizing the bottom groove to move into fourth. Shepard and Keel began a battle for fifth, with Shepard up top and Keel on the bottom. Shepard finally took the spot for good on lap 25. Keel regained the spot after al long battle on lap 36 and as the white flag appeared, Daron Clayton lost a front wing after contact with K. Jacobs, setting up a green-white-checkered two-lap shootout to the finish line.
The restart order was D. Jacobs, Tatnell, K. Jacobs, Shepard, Keel and Smith. Tatnell dove to the bottom groove to try and slide under the leader when the green reappeared, but Dean had the momentum to pull away on the high side of the track, enabling him to go on for the win. Tatnell ended second, with Shepard ducking under K. Jacobs for third on the last circuit. Kenny was fourth ahead of Keel's fifth, his best finish of 2003. Smith, Hull, Greg Wilson, Chad Kemenah and Kevin Briscoe rounded out the top ten.
The Crown Battery heat fell to Kevin Briscoe, the B&B Products heat went to Jim Moughan, the Engler Machine and Tool heat was won by Daron Clayton and the TP Wings heat fell to Jeff Shepard.
