All Stars Return to “The Track That Action Built”

CAMARGO, IL (9-6-06) – The All Star Circuit of Champions will return to Fremont Speedway in Fremont, Ohio this Saturday, September 9th making this their third appearance at the facility in 2006. Many drivers on the All Star tour have called the 1/3 mile clay oval home at some point in their career. All Star legends Jack Hewitt, Frankie Kerr, Rick Ferkel, Al Liskai, and Jim Linder have several wins in the Fremont record book. The future All Star legends are set to do battle with the tough Fremont regulars this Saturday night.
The All Stars have always put on an exciting show for the fans at Fremont Speedway and this event will be no different as the season points chase is nearing the end. There are many local racers who will insure that the car count will be good in the heart of 410 country and the competition level will be high on the tough little bullring.
The All Star series last visited Fremont during Ohio Sprint Speedweek and the capacity crowd witnessed young hotshoe Ricky Stenhouse Jr. chase down Dale Blaney to take the win. The car count was one of the highest nationally for 410 sprints in the 2006 season. As another season is coming to a close, we hope that the All Star fans will be out in force to cheer on their favorite drivers and witness what has historically been some of the closest and most exciting racing in 410 sprints.

Chad Blonde Thunders to First All Star Victory

MAYETTA, KS (8-14-06) – The All Star Circuit of Champions visited Thunderhill Speedway in Mayetta, KS in 2005 with a first time All Star feature winner – Cody Geldart – who then went on to win the All Star Rookie of the Year title. In 2006, it would appear that history is about to repeat itself. Chad Blonde, who has a commanding lead in the Rookie of the Year points, chalked up his first ever All Star victory in Kansas, much like his predecessor Geldart. With only a few races left on the All Star schedule, he is poised to collect the Rookie of the Year award as well if he can hold off Brandon Martin’s charge.

Greg Wilson, who leads the All Star season points, set quick time atop the 19 car field that made the tow to Kansas on a Monday night after the Knoxville Nationals long week of events. A great crowd came out to see the All Stars in their only appearance in the Plains States in 2006 and it was announced that the All Stars will return to Thunderhill Speedway again in 2007.

Though Wilson snared the top spot in qualifying, it was Blonde who had the fortune of qualifying 6th, putting him on the front row of the A-main with the 6 car inversion. After a lap one crash by Bob Bennett who flipped hard down the backstretch, Blonde would use the complete re-start to rocket to the lead and never look back.

The red flag would fly again for JR Topper just a few laps into the race, but Blonde held onto the lead on the re-start with Jesse Hockett running him down from his 8th starting spot and Danny Smith charging to the front from his 7th starting spot. Hockett would challenge Blonde late in the race as the two entered lapped traffic, but Hockett ran out of fuel with just a handful of laps to go putting an end to his great run and sending him to the tail. Hockett was able to restart the race and finished 8th. Blonde, who has been getting stronger each week with the experience he has gained this season, was able to keep the experienced Smith behind him until the checkered flag flew on lap 30.

This was Chad Blonde’s first victory with the All Stars, but he has racked up several wins at Butler Speedway near his home in Litchfield, MI as well as other wins around the Ohio area. Chad joined the All Stars this season with the intention of becoming the 2006 Rookie of the Year and he and his team have worked hard all season long to accomplish that goal. Not only does he lead the Rookie points, but he sits in 3rd place in overall season points behind Brock Mayes who is currently in 2nd place. Chad and Brock have exchanged that position a few times this season as they both try to reel in Wilson going into the home stretch.

Brock Mayes won the Haulmark Dash and the heats were won by Jim Cameron, Brandon Martin and Paul May.

Next up, the All Stars head to Sharon Speedway in Hartford, OH on Saturday Sept. 2nd for the Sharon Nationals. For more information, please visit www.allstarsprint.com or www.sharonspeedway.com.

Brownsburg Bullet Back In Victory Lane

ROSSBURG, OH (8-4-06) – The All Star Circuit of Champions took on the
World of Outlaws once again at the high banks of Eldora Speedway in
Rossburg, OH on Friday evening. The latest event in the showdown series
between the two traveling groups saw Joey Saldana take the lead from
Donny Schatz with just two laps to go to net Saldana his 2nd
consecutive victory at Eldora.

"I never tried to run in the middle because usually when I do that, I
lose my right rear tire," Saldana said. "The longer the race got, I knew
he (Schatz) would get slower because he was not running against the
fence in turns three and four. That's where I was gaining so much
momentum on top. He was running so low going into (turn) three that it
was scrubbing speed. I knew sooner or later I could get him. It was just
getting to a lapped car and have him have to move his car. It happened
with only a couple laps to go."

Saldana’s car owner Kasey Kahne was in attendance to see his driver win
another race on the big half mile. "It feels really good," said Kahne.
"When I come and watch him, he does an awesome job at this race track. I
think Donny (Schatz) may have been a little better, but he got bound up
in lap traffic and Joey took advantage of it. Joey did a great job and
the guys did a great job giving him a good race car."

"His wins pay a hell of a lot more than mine do," Saldana said jokingly
of his car owner. "It is very cool to drive for him. He has definitely
changed my racing career, so hopefully we can keep this up."

All Stars Dale Blaney and Danny Smith had to make the A-main by way of
transferring from the B-main, but managed to use their experience at
Eldora to climb into the Top 15 by the end of the 30 lap affair. Blaney
would come from the back to finish 8^th and Smith would finish 11^th .
Brock Mayes and Brandon Martin also scored Top 15 finishes in 13^th and
14^th place respectively.

The All Stars also held the 17^th through 22^nd spots in the A-main with
All Star points leader Greg Wilson, Rob Chaney, Neil Shepherd, Chad
Blonde, Butch Schroeder, and Ricky Stenhouse, Jr.

The All Stars will take a short break for the Knoxville Nationals and
then be back in action on August 14th at Thunderhill Speedway in
Mayetta, KS.

King Joey the 23rd!!! Brownsburg Bullet Victorious at Kings Royal

ROSSBURG, OH (7-14-06) – Every summer in the middle of July, the small town of Rossburg, Ohio increases its population by about 18,000 people for the annual King’s Royal event. The crowds converge on Eldora Speedway from all directions to see one of the greatest spectacles in motorsports. The 23rd Annual Kings Royal by Crown Royal did not disappoint those who traveled from near and far to witness the event in 2006.

Friday’s event, dubbed “The Knight Before the King’s Royal” was won by Craig Dollansky after early race leader Kevin Swindell flipped in turn one. “It’s pretty tough when you run above the cushion like that,” said Dollansky. “The cushion was pretty deep. I felt like we would have a good shot in lapped traffic because he (Swindell) was good on the open track by himself. This car was running good.”

The big story of the evening was Dale Blaney who started the A-main 24th and used the bottom of the track to work his way to the front picking off 2 and 3 cars per lap. “I didn’t need the red with ten to go,” said Blaney. “The last nine laps I kind of struggled. I could see McCarl and Walker and who knows where we could have ended up. The way the track was, it was hard to pass anyone. Everyone tried to run around the curb. Starting 24th we took a chance and ran the bottom. We started going good out there and stayed out there. We kept rolling.” Blaney would finish the night in the 4th spot behind Dollansky, Terry McCarl, and Tyler Walker. Kenny Jacobs rounded out the Top 5 in the JEI Performance house car fielded by Barry Jackson.

Saturday’s King’s Royal by Crown Royal event was dominated early by Danny Lasoski who jumped out to the early lead from his front row starting position, but it was Joey Saldana who would keep Lasoski in his sights for the first 19 laps. On lap 20, Saldana maneuvered around Lasoski and checked out. He would go on to win the event and be crowned King Joey the 23rd.

“It feels pretty good,” Saldana said. “The best of the best were here. Everybody was here and this shows we are no slouches. You have to feel confident with these guys that you can win. If you don’t then you won’t get it done. I was confident coming in here. We didn’t get it done the first time we were here this year, but we didn’t get down. We came out strong and got the job done.”

Behind Saldana, Donny Schatz ran down Lasoski in the final laps to finish 2nd. “I’m here trying to win,” said Schatz. “We had a decent car, but it was not quite as good as theirs. They have put a lot into their engine program and it is obviously paying off. It will be nice to get on some track where we can slow down and race a little bit more. We’ll be going to some of those this week. We are in the summer heat, and the speeds will slow down, and we look to be better.”

Kevin Swindell must have been paying attention to Dale Blaney’s Friday night run as he started the A-main 23rd and passed more cars than anyone giving him a 4th place finish. Rounding out the Top 5 was Outlaw rookie contender and former four time All Star champ Chad Kemenah.

The All Stars will be back in action on August 2nd with the World of Outlaws at Butler Speedway in Quincy, MI. From there the series travels to Eldora Speedway with the Outlaws on August 4th. The July events at Southern Raceway in Milton, Florida have been cancelled.

Saldana Heavy on Throttle; Stenhouse Light at Scales

LIMA, OH (7-13-06) – Joey Saldana honored sprint car hero and legend Brad Doty with a victory in the Brad Doty Classic at Limaland Motorsports Park on Thursday night. 44 cars packed the pits to take part in the event that was postponed from Wednesday’s heavy showers that fell throughout the Ohio area.

The large crowd watched as Saldana rocketed around the mile high banked bullring in Western Ohio as he piloted his Kasey Kahne owned Curb Records sponsored machine to another feature win in the highly anticipated event co-sanctioned by the World of Outlaws and the All Stars Circuit of Champions.

“I felt like in traffic I was doing pretty good,” Saldana said. “It seemed like it was my Achilles heal on the other short tracks. I kind of got myself in a bad situation and lost some momentum and those guys ran me down. I definitely felt pretty good though. Traffic always dictates the winner on a quarter-mile. We still had the speed, and I’ll take it.”

Saldana was thrilled to win the Brad Doty Classic, a race which has become one of the “must see” events each summer. “It’s huge,” said Saldana. “He was a hell of a race car driver. I’ve been trying to do this for a while since I was with the All Stars. I have come really close and we got it done tonight.”

Ricky Stenhouse Jr., who made his return to the area after picking up three wins during Ohio Speedweek – including one at Limaland – fought his way to the front from his 3rd row starting position as he held off Donny Schatz while picking off Brooke Tattnell, Daryn Pittman, and finally Terry McCarl with just a few laps to go. He crossed the finish line just a few car lengths back from Saldana in 2nd place, however post race inspection found him to be 10 lbs. light at the scales as he weighed in at 1365 lbs. He was scored in 24th place.

McCarl, who earlier in the evening won the dash, would inherit 2nd place from Stenhouse followed by Schatz, Danny Lasoski, and Tattnell. “Early on I think I had a better car than Joey in the middle of the track and down low in traffic, but the yellow kept coming out,” said McCarl. “He ran the top better than me and probably better than anyone out here. I was moving around and tried everything with my car and looked around up there. I was a little more aggressive with the car on the top. I had to make a bonsai move on the start, but he was a little better. We were hoping to win the Brad Doty Classic, it’s a big race.”

All Star points leader Greg Wilson, who started deep in the field, made an astonishing charge to the front making it all the way up to 6th place through heavy traffic and looked to have one of the fastest cars on the track at the end of the race. However, with just a handful of laps remaining he got into the turn 3 fence and flipped ending what would surely have been a Top 5 run.

All Star members Dale Blaney finished the night in the 7th spot as Danny Smith and Phil Gressman finished 12th and 13th. Chad Blonde was 14th, Bobby Clark 17th, Greg Wilson 18th, Byron Reed 19th, Tim Hunter 21st, and Brock Mayes 22nd. Stenhouse rounded out the field in 24th after the weight infraction.

Next up, the All Stars head South to Eldora Speedway for the two day Kings Royal event on July 14th and 15th. For more information, please visit www.allstarsprint.com or www.eldoraspeedway.com.

Tattnell Wins Wild One at I-55 Raceway

PEVELY, MO (7-8-06) – Brooke Tattnell picked up his 3rd World of Outlaws feature of 2006 on the short bullring known as I-55 Raceway in Pevely, MO. He led 33 of the 40 laps as he was hounded by Joey Saldana and Donny Schatz the entire way. As the track began to take rubber through the turns it was very difficult to pass, but Schatz made every effort to get by Tattnell and the two exchanged the lead several times. In the end, Tattnell’s retro-looking #8 machine was headed to victory lane.

“I’m pretty happy and proud of this team right now,” said Tatnell. “The guys did an awesome job tonight. We made the decision to change the car after the dash, even though we were good in the dash. We win together as a team and we lose together as a team. We all made the decision.”

In the waning laps of the event, tires became the big story of the night as Troy Little lost a right rear tire on lap 30 and then several more cars lost right rear tires on lap 34. Tatnell was hoping they had chosen the right compound to get them through all 40 laps. As the tire problems ensued, Schatz found himself with an ill handling race car and just tried to hold on to his position, but a hard charging Daryn Pittman got around him in traffic and All Star points leader Greg Wilson followed.

“I think I had the right tires on,” said Schatz. “Something happened to the car and I don’t know if it was tire-related. The tire did have a real weird shape when we got done, and it can happen. We used it pretty hard, and it had enough to finish the race. The last 10 laps, I could not turn. I don’t know what is broken, but something definitely happened. We will have to find out what it was.”

Wilson would have his best finish of the season so far in co-sanctioned racing with the World of Outlaws. “It was an awesome night for us,” Wilson said. “It’s our best ever finish with the World of Outlaws. We’ve been running strong all season with the All Stars and it’s good to go into the ‘Month of Money,’ with a good finish.”

Wilson is ready for the upcoming Brad Doty Classic on Wednesday night, an event he has won in the past. He also is looking forward to the Kings Royal weekend at Eldora, as he continues to have a strong season.

“It’s pretty exciting for us,” said Wilson. “Lima is one of our home tracks. My owner is giving me great equipment and we have had some great weather. We are excited to go back to Ohio.”

Danny Smith had a good run all night long and he finished just outside of the Top 10 in 11th place. Chad Blonde also had a good night as he started the A-main on the front row outside of Tattnell after finishing 2nd to Tattnell in the dash. He was not able to hold on, however, and slipped back to 15th place.

Paul May finished 16th and Brandon Martin was 20th. Brock Mayes was barely edged out of the transfer spot in his heat race by Brandon Martin. The two touch as they crossed the line sending Martin into the turn one fence.

Mayes had more bad luck as he was charging to the front in the B-main as he got together with the #19 of Becca Anderson which flattened his left rear tire and sent Anderson head on into the turn one fence. Mayes was able to restart and made a hard charge up through the field, but ran out of laps leaving him with a 7th place finish.

The All Stars will be back in Ohio on Wednesday July 12th for the Brad Doty Classic. The event will be held at Limaland Speedway this year for the first time. From there, the series heads south to Eldora Speedway for the two day Kings Royal event.

Haudenschild Wins City of Lawrenceburg Sprint Nationals

LAWRENCEBURG, IN (7-7-06) – “The Wild Child” showed everyone once again how he got his nickname as it took a couple of wild moves to get past Joey Saldana and Craig Dollansky to win the City of Lawrenceburg Sprint Nationals. Jac Haudenschild nearly crashed on Lap #1 as he bicycled through turn two, but managed to maintain control and held onto the car. Throughout the 40 lap event, Haudenschild would flirt with disaster several more times, battling both lapped traffic and a rough track.

Joey Saldana lead the first 32 laps, but a hard charging Craig Dollansky heated things up with 7 laps to go as he and Saldana exchanged the lead several times. Haudenschild took the opportunity to close on the leaders and make a bold move to pass them both with 2 laps to go. The crowd was on their feet as he took the lead and went on to win the event.

"It was a good race," said Haudenschild. "In the dash we got a few spots to give us a good starting position. The first few laps of the feature we had to fight our way back. We fought our way back about three times after falling to 10th. The guys had the car set up really well. We were able to get up through there."

Saldana, who got caught up behind lapped traffic allowing Haudenschild to get by him was not pleased with the outcome of the race. "Lapped cars at the end would not give anything to the leaders,” said Saldana, “and you just can't forget what comes around goes around. I know that one day I will be getting lapped, hopefully not soon, but you have to remember that stuff and give the leaders some room. Obviously the lapped cars wanted to race us."

The make up race from last April’s rain out had 36 All Stars and Outlaws going head to head on the mile bullring. The All Star Circuit of Champions were able to place 9 of the 13 members on hand into the A-main, but attrition would rear its ugly head and saw many of those 9 end the night with broken race cars caused by the rough track.

Chad Blonde was running in the Top 5 when his throttle stuck open causing him to spin on the backstretch and broke the motor in the process. Brock Mayes flipped in turn two trying to avoid cars dodging around Blonde as he spun. Kelly Kinser, Danny Smith, and Rob Chaney all left the race early with mechanical problems as well.

All Stars Dale Blaney and Paul May had Top 10 finishes with Blaney finishing 7th and Paul May finishing 9th. Kevin Huntly almost cracked the Top 10 as he crossed the finish line in 11th place. Neil Shepherd also had a nice run finishing the night 14th.

All Star season points leader Greg Wilson was not able to transfer to the A-main as he finished 6th in the B-main. This allowed Brock Mayes and Chad Blonde to gain a few points on the leader.

The All Stars move on to I-55 Raceway in Pevely, MO with the World of Outlaws for another co-sanctioned event on Saturday July 8th. This will be the 8th co-sanctioned event in the All Stars vs. The Outlaws Showdown Series.

All Stars Headed to Lawrenceburg and Pevely

CAMARGO, IL (7-6-06) – The All Star Circuit of Champions will take on the World of Outlaws once again with another co-sanctioned event that was rescheduled from the Friday April 21st rain out. The series heads back to the mile bull ring in Southern Indiana with plenty of sun in the forecast this time around for the “City of Lawrenceburg Sprint Nationals”. Lawrenceburg has been described as "having 24 fighter jets in your living room" with the close wheel to wheel racing. The tight quarter mile will make for some of the best action so far this season as the two longest running 410 winged sprint car series do battle on this short, high banked dirt track.

From there, the series travels West to Ken Schrader’s I-55 Raceway in Pevely, MO with the World of Outlaws for another short track showdown. Greg Wilson currently leads the All Star season points and will be trying to add to his series points lead throughout the weekend. Brock Mayes and Chad Blonde are only a few points apart in 2nd and 3rd place respectively. Blonde also leads the Rookie of the Year points going into the weekend.

Another Successful Ohio Sprint Speedweek as Blaney Wins 4th Title

CAMARGO, IL (7-5-06) – By Bryan Autullo – Another Ohio Sprint Speedweek has come and gone. The tradition started by the All Stars in 1983 of inviting cars from all across the land to join the series in 7 straight days of racing at 7 Ohio tracks once again drew large car counts that topped anything seen in 410 racing in recent memory. 89 drivers from 10 different states including Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, California, Arizona, New Mexico, Wisconsin, and Mississippi converged on the Buckeye State to take part in the original sprint speedweek. Even two Australian drivers, Scott Reilly and Troy Little, made the trip from Down Under to try their hand against the American competition.
Speedweek consists of 7 events, but two more dates were scheduled at Lernerville and K-C Raceway on the weekend leading into Speedweek. Friday’s event at Lernerville was rained out, and Saturday at K-C Raceway we saw a new face in victory lane. Tom Busch raced his way to his first ever All Star feature win.
A power outage caused by severe storms claimed the Monday date at Wayne County Speedway, and afternoon showers with more storms on the way caused the Wednesday event at Sharon Speedway to be postponed until September.
At the end of Speedweek, a total of 18 drivers made the tow to all 5 events (Dale Blaney, Greg Wilson, Ricky Stenhouse Jr, Bobby Clark, Brock Mayes, Brandon Martin, Kevin Huntley, Danny Smith, Rob Chaney, Paul May, Chad Blonde, Neil Shepherd, Tim Hunter, Dean Jacobs, Barry Ruble, Scott Reilly, Ben Gregg, and James Mosher). Six of those drivers made every A main event (Blaney, Wilson, Stenhouse, Clark, Huntley, and Chaney). Four former Ohio Speed Week champions competed in this year’s events (Blaney, Kelly Kinser, Jacobs, and Huntley).
With the number of cars in the pits each night, it was never an easy task to qualify well and transfer to the A-main. Three nights had last chance “non-qualifiers” races as the field was limited to just 52 cars. The highest car count of the week was 60 at Limaland where the EFI-NRA 360 group was invited to race with the All Stars with the highest finishing 360 driver receiving bonus money. Fremont had 58 cars with only two 360’s in the field. The lowest car count of the week was 29 at Eldora, but it was still a spectacular show with Dale Blaney picking up the win and the Speedweek Championship.
Greg Wilson retained the All Star season points lead as he finished the week 2nd in Speedweek points behind Blaney. The surprise of the week came from Olive Branch, MS in the form of an 18 year old hot shoe named Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. who had never seen any of these Ohio tracks and never raced with a 410 motor. With the help of Andy Potter, Stenhouse picked up wins at Attica, Fremont, and Limaland. By the end of the week, people were calling him “Harry” Potter for his magical setups. Stenhouse finished the week third in Speedweek points. Another surprise was Fremont, Ohio’s Bobby Clark who made consistent runs all week long and was 4th in Speedweek points after charging from 21st to 7th at Eldora. Brock Mayes also had a solid week’s worth of good finishes and rounded out the Top 5.
The 2006 Ohio Sprint Speedweek point fund paid dividends to the Top 15 in points at the end of the week. The remaining drivers in 6th through 15th place were Brandon Martin, Kevin Huntley, Danny Smith, Rob Chaney, Paul May, Chad Blonde, Neil Shepherd, Tim Hunter, Butch Schroeder, and Dean Jacobs.
The All Stars thank all of our Speedweek sponsors for making the $10,000 Speedweek point fund possible. KS Sales & Service, Outerwears Pre-filters, Crown Battery, Meguiar’s Car Care Products, and RacingFansDirect.com all support the All Stars and area sprint car racing. Please show your patronage when in need of any products or services that they provide.
The All Stars series would like to express our thanks to all teams and drivers who participated in this year’s Ohio Sprint Speedweek. We would also like to thank all the fans who came out and filled the stands all week long. We also thank all the track promoters and crews for their hospitality and hard work in making this week a success. We look forward to an even bigger and better Ohio Sprint Speedweek in 2007. We hope everyone continues to support 410 sprint car racing and the All Stars throughout the remainder of this season. We’ll see you at the next race.

Blaney Rockets to 4th Ohio Speedweek Title with Eldora Win

ROSSBURG, OH (7-1-06) – When asked last Sunday night at Attica if he had another Speedweek Championship left in him, Dale Blaney responded by saying, “We’ll see come Saturday night.” Going into the final Speedweek race at Eldora Speedway, Blaney had a 2 point lead over Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. and a 12 point lead over Greg Wilson. At the end of the night, Blaney did in fact add one more Speedweek title to his resume.

“I have to give the credit to the guys on my crew and (owner) George Fisher,” said Blaney from victory lane. “They gave me a really good car all week long with a good motor. I’m just the guy who is lucky enough to be sitting in this thing driving it.”

Australian visitor Troy Little set quick time in Huggins Cams qualifying at his first ever visit to the speedway. He then turned in a fifth place finish behind Blaney, Wilson, Ed Lynch Jr., and Butch Schroeder.

Wilson started on the front row along side Danny Smith but when the green flag dropped it was Schroeder and Blaney who were on the move to the front. Blaney, who started 5th, followed Schroeder and Lynch to the front as Schroeder took the early lead from Wilson.

Blaney then hounded Wilson for 2nd as Lynch and Little battled side by side behind them. Blaney seemed to get faster as the laps went on and he got by Wilson and chased down Schroeder in lapped traffic as he dove under him and put a patented Eldora slide job on the leader and began to pull away.

Wilson kept them in his sights and navigated traffic on the high side of the track with the right rear scuffing the concrete through the turns giving him the momentum he needed to catch Schroeder and Blaney who exchanged the lead several times ahead of him.

At the halfway point, Dean Jacobs caught Troy Little and was going for the pass on the high side when Mike Miller spun in turn two and collected Jacobs and ended his night. Ricky Stenhouse Jr., who started 13th was now up to 6th place on the restart.

Schroeder led Blaney to the green flag, but Blaney got past him and began to pull away as Wilson caught Schroeder for 2nd with a slide job in turn one. He kept to the high side and reeled in Blaney who was a straightaway ahead.

With 5 laps to go, Wilson was along side of Blaney challenging for the lead as he worked the high side and the low side giving Blaney a run for the money. With just one lap to go, Wilson was on his bumper coming off of turn 2 setting up what would be one last challenge through turns 3 and 4 for the win. It would not happen as the caution flew one last time for Ricky Stenhouse Jr.’s blown right rear tire.

On the restart, Blaney looked like he was shot from a cannon with no traffic to contend with and went on to win the race and his 4th Ohio Sprint Speedweek title.

A disappointed Wilson said, “That last caution killed us. I think I would have had him going into 3, but that’s the way racing goes. Dale Blaney is one of the fastest and most consistent drivers in the country and he earned it.”

Tim Hunter won the B-main followed by Barry Ruble, Bobby Clark, and Neil Shepherd. Clark the drove from 21st to 7th in the A-main, winning the Hard Charger award for the evening.

Butch Schroeder won the All Star Haulmark Dash followed by Blaney, Wilson, Brock Mayes, Danny Smith, and Ron Blair.

The All Stars would like to thank our Speedweek sponsors KS Sales & Service, Crown Battery, Racing Fans Direct, and Outerwears Pre-Filters for being a part of Ohio Sprint Speedweek and supporting sprint car racing and the All Stars.

The All Stars will be back in action Friday July 7th at Lawrenceburg Speedway for the re-scheduled co-sanctioned show with the World of Outlaws. The event was rained out earlier this season.

Stenhouse Jr. Thunders to 3rd Speedweek Victory at Limaland

LIMA, OH (6-30-06) – With 59 sprint cars signed into the pits at the beautiful Limaland facility in Western Ohio, Night #6 of Ohio Sprint Speedweek was bustling with activity. The EFI-NRA 360 sprints showed up to challenge the All Stars on “Ohio’s Mile Thunder” high banked bullring . The racing was intense all night long and the large crowd was on the edge of their seats as the kid from Mississippi sliced and diced his way to another Speedweek win.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. started on the outside of the front row by virtue of a great qualifying run and transferring from his heat race directly to the A-main. Phil Gressman was on the pole, but when the green flag dropped Stenhouse never looked back.

Gressman stayed on his rear bumper as Byron Reed lurked in third. The battle for fourth was intense with Greg Wilson rocketing around Rob Chaney and Dale Blaney to set his sights on Reed. Reed battled Gressman for the second position as they both kept Stenhouse in sight.

Gressman, Reed, and Wilson raced two and three wide for several laps until Wilson finally took over the third spot. He would then hunt down Gressman as Stenhouse began to enter lapped traffic.

Wilson went to the low side and moved into 2nd as Gressman ran up top and got hung up behind a lapped car. Reed stayed on Gressman’s bumper while Blaney and Chaney raced side by side just a few car lengths back.

Stenhouse, now with a comfortable lead, scrubbed the backstretch wall with 15 laps to go coming off of turn two, but it barely slowed his pace as he went on to win the caution free 30 lap event. Wilson closed the gap with just a few laps to go and made several attempts to get close enough to challenge for the win but Stenhouse took the checkered flag followed by Wilson, Gressman, Blaney, and Reed.

Neil Shepherd won the C-main event followed by Jamie Miller, Scott Reilly, and Cory Seeling who all transferred to the B-main.

Veteran racer Danny Smith won the B-main ahead of Kevin Huntley, Brian Ellenberger, and Luke Hall.

The All Star Haulmark Dash was won by Phil Gressman followed by Reed, Blaney, Wilson, Stenhouse, and Chaney.

Next up for the All Stars is Saturday July 1st at Eldora where the 2006 Ohio Speedweek Champion will be crowned. Dale Blaney leads Ricky Stenhouse Jr. by 2 points going into the final event.

Mississippi Teen Tames The Track That Action Built

FREMONT, OH (6-29-06) - The history and tradition of Ohio Sprint Speedweek is synonymous with Fremont Speedway’s long list of All Star feature winners over the past few decades at “The track that action built”. Add to that list a kid from Olive Branch, MS who was told that Attica and Fremont would be the two toughest tracks to tame during the week of events. He wasn’t intimidated by the two tracks he’d never seen before and went out and won at both as he also picked up the Speedweek opener win last Sunday.

"I'm going to have to come back and race in Ohio more often,” said Stenhouse in victory lane. “I have to thank Pete Grove and Premiere Pallets for helping to get us to Speedweek and Jack Elam and J&J Chassis for giving us such a great race car. We hired Andy Potter (from Fremont) to wrench on this car this week and he just had this thing so good. I could drive it anywhere to get around lapped traffic."

58 cars were on hand for Night #5 of Ohio Sprint Speedweek which was a record nationally for 410 racing in the United States in 2006. This made it very difficult to make the 24 car field for the main event.

All Star Rookie of the Year contender Brandon Martin jumped into the lead of the 40-lap feature from his pole starting spot, with outside front row starter Dale Blaney, Stenhouse, Lee Jacobs, Phil Gressman and Paul McMahan in tow. Martin hugged the bottom and continued to lead, but slipped up entering turn three on lap 10 to allow Blaney to get under him.

Blaney would then lead with Stenhouse getting around Martin on lap 11 for second. As the leaders hit lapped traffic, Stenhouse closed on Blaney and raced beside him on several occasions. At the half-way mark, the running order was Blaney, Stenhouse, Martin, Jacobs, McMahan, Phil Gressman and David Harrison.

It started getting wild by lap 27 as the leaders hit heavy lapped traffic racing side by side in front of them. Stenhouse used a lapped car pick move to drive to the inside of Blaney exiting turn four to take the lead as they completed lap 28.

Stenhouse then diced his way through lapped traffic until the checkered flag fell to collect his second Ohio Sprint Speedweek win in just three events.

"I don't know what happened, but with about 15-20 laps to go, the car just got tight," said Blaney next to his George Fisher owned #2. "I'm disappointed, but we'll take second...Ricky's a great driver and we have to work hard to beat him these last two races.”

"These guys (Burmeister Racing) worked hard to give me a good race car. We were a little off at the beginning of the race, but it came around at the end," said Jacobs. "Hats off to Ricky...he's going to be a good one."

Paul McMahan set quick time in Huggins Cams Qualifying at 12.493. Drawing an early number for qualifying was good with so many cars in the pits. The track began to slow down about midway through the qualifying session.

The C-main was won by All Star veteran Danny Smith who ran away with the victory from his front row starting position.

The B-main was a wild one with Rob Chaney and David Harrison racing side by side for several laps with Harrison eventually coming out on top followed by Chaney, Tim Hunter, and Mark Keegan who snuck into a transfer spot on the final lap.

Dale Blaney won the All Star Haulmark Dash and Byron Reed won a special charity dash for the Billy Stierwalt Memorial Fund. Reed and the other drivers donated their dash winnings to the fund and helped to raise $3000.

Next up for the All Stars is Friday June 30th at Limaland and Saturday July 1st at Eldora where the 2006 Ohio Speedweek Champion will be crowned.

OHIO SPEEDWEEK NIGHT #4 WASHED OUT

(HARTFORD, OH) - Tonight's Ohio Speedweek show at Sharon Speedway has
been cancelled due to heavy rains and hail that fell early in the
afternoon with the threat of more rain on the way throughout the
evening. As of 9:30pm more rain began to fall in the Hartford area with
20 - 30 mph wind gusts. The National Weather Service issued the
following warning: "Showers and thunderstorms will move from west to
east across the area early tonight. Winds will gust to 35 mph with some
of the storms along with brief heavy rain...small hail and frequent
lightning." The All Star Circuit of Champions felt that it was in the
best interest of the fans and drivers to pospone the event to a later date.

Ohio Sprint Speedweek action continues on Thursday night at "The Track
That Action Built" - Fremont Speedway in Fremont, Ohio. It will be all
winged sprint cars as Fremont's 305 sprints join the All Stars for Night
#5 of Speedweek.


Tall Cool One Shoots Down Apollo Rocket

ZANESVILLE, OH (6-27-06) Ohio Sprint Speedweek took a dip into Southeastern Ohio on Night #3 to Muskingum County Speedway in Zanesville. 38 cars signed into the pits to take part in the original Speedweek started in Ohio in 1983. After an unfortunate cancellation of Night #2 at Wayne County Speedway due to a power outage from severe storms, the drivers were itching to get back to the intense action of Speedweek and the fans filled the stands to watch it all unfold.

Dale Blaney started off the evening by setting a new track record in Huggins Cams Qualifying, shattering the old mark set by Joey Saldana in 1999. The George Fisher owned #2 was fast right out of the gate. It was a sign of things to come.

Ed Lynch Jr. looked to be unbeatable for 38 laps, but The Tall Cool One chased down the Apollo Rocket in lapped traffic like a heat seeking missile as the fans were kept on the edge of their seats throughout the A-main. Blaney put on a show for them as he came from his starting position outside of row 3 to take the checkered flag in the 40 lap event.

The A-main action started off fast and furious between Rob Chaney and Ed Lynch Jr. as Chaney jumped out to the early lead. Lynch chased him down on the bottom side and the Apollo Rocket shot into the lead on lap 3. A caution for a spinning Nick Naber slowed the action on lap 3.

On the ensuing restart, second place Chaney spun and collected the 5b of Chad Blonde bringing out the second caution of the event. Blonde left on the hook with just 3 laps in the books.

Ed Lynch Jr. led the charge on the restart with heavy action behind him between Brian Paulus, Brock Mayes, Kevin Huntley, and Paul McMahan who spun on lap 10 and was not able to continue.

Lynch then showed Mayes the way to lap 20 through lapped traffic with Blaney and Paulus battling for 3rd. Blaney, who started 6th, chased down Mayes and challenged for 2nd as the Apollo Rocket pulled away from the pack.

Blaney chased down Lynch in lapped traffic while Mayes and Wilson battled for 3rd with 5 laps to go. Blaney caught Lynch as they traded the lead back and forth. With two laps to go Blaney took the lead for good and pulled away from Lynch to go on to his first victory of the season.

Rounding out the Top 5 were Lynch, Mayes, Wilson, and Paulus.

Huntley won the University of Northwest Ohio B-main, followed by Nick Naber, Todd Kane, and Brandon Martin who all transferred to the A-main.

McMahan won the Haulmark Dash in the Tony Stewart owned Bass Pro Shops #20 machine. McMahan was followed by Blaney, Chaney, Mayes, Greg Wilson, and Ricky Stenhouse Jr.

Next up for the All Stars is Wednesday June 28th at Sharon Speedway in Hartford, OH and then on June 29th at Fremont, June 30th at Limaland, and July 1st at Eldora.

"Little Ricky" Takes Ohio Speedweek Opener at Attica

ATTICA, OH (6-25-06) The tradition of Ohio Sprint Speedweek continued at
Attica Raceway Park with a big car count, a large crowd, exciting
racing, and surprise visitors that always make things interesting for
the week of events. To add to the aura and excitement of Speedweek, this
night also included a dominating performance by a young hot shoe they
call “Little Ricky” who after last night's performance can call Attica
Raceway Park "Sten's House".

At just 18 years of age, Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. put on a masterful
performance to top the 47 car field that included many of the All Stars,
some National Sprint Tour drivers, and the always tough Ohio locals. The
native of Olive Branch, MS has the benefit of Andy Potter’s expert
knowledge turning wrenches for the week and he had the car set up to run
anywhere on the speedway.

"They told me the toughest tracks to win at this week would be Attica
and Fremont. We brought an Ohio boy (Andy Genzman) in to help us this
week...he knows how to get ya' around these tracks and he proved that
tonight," said Stenhouse. "I have to thank Pete Grove (from Ohio) and
Premier Pallets...he helped us come out here for this. I've been looking
forward to racing with this deal for a long time."

Stenhouse held off a late charge by Byron Reed in the Reebar Diecasting
#5r as Reed reeled him in through lapped traffic late in the race. A
caution on lap 34 left a wide open track in front of Stenhouse on the
restart as he motored to victory in front of the capacity crowd with
Reed in tow.

"I thought we could have made things interesting those last six laps if
the yellow hadn't come out," said Reed, beside his Reebar Diecasting
sprinter. “He had a good mechanic with him (Potter) who knows how to get
drivers around this track. I have to thank George Gillespie of
ProShocks...he helped us a lot gettin this thing figured out."

Greg Wilson charged to the front on the high side like a madman on a
mission. Spending most of his time searching for more forward bite with
his right rear off the backstretch and on the horse track as he usually
does at Attica, Wilson powered his way past a number of competitors and
came home 3^rd .

"We were just a tick off on set-up,” said Wilson. “But hey, it's pretty
neat for a kid from Mississippi to come in to Ohio and win. The good
Lord gave us great weather and we put on a heck of a race for the fans.
It was a good points night for us...in the big picture we had a good night."

“The Tall Cool One” Dale Blaney finished 4^th and pole sitter Butch
Schroeder rounded out the Top 5.

The heats were won by Tim Hunter, Todd Kane, Schroeder, and Wilson. The
track was fast and the action was furious all through the heat races and
many good teams were forced to run the B or C-mains.

Bryan Scott won the C-main event followed by Paul May, David Harrison,
and All Star Rookie of the Year points leader Chad Blonde who all
transferred to the B-main.

The University of Northwest Ohio B-main was won by the 2005 Ohio
Speedweek Champion Kelly Kinser. The other transfer spots went to Brian
Smith, Kevin Huntley, and Danny Smith. The rest loaded up for the night
and will get ready for Tuesday night’s action.

The Haulmark Dash was action packed with a 6 car battle for points
toward a year-end Haulmark Dash Point Fund. Bobby Clark led the charge
to the checkered followed by Reed, Wilson, Blaney, Schroeder, and Paul
McMahan.

Next up for the All Stars is Tuesday June 27^th at Muskingum County
Speedway in Zanesville, OH and then on June 28^th at Sharon, June 29^th
at Fremont, June 30^th at Limaland, and July 1^st at Eldora. The June
26^th event at Wayne County Speedway has been cancelled due to a power
outage in the area from storms that hit last week.

2006 Merchandise Online Store. More items are being added this week
including new hats and ladies apparel, the All Stars vs. the Outlaws Showdown
shirts and the 2006 Ohio Speedweek shirts.

Busch Nabs First All Star Victory

CHILLICOTHE, OH (6-24-06) – by Bryan Autullo – Bedford, Indiana’s Tom Busch thought he would have trouble making the A-main at K-C raceway with such a tough crowd of competitors on hand on the event dubbed “The Night The Stars Come Out”. However, the driver of the 4B found himself standing on the front stretch at the end of the night as he won his first All Star A-main of his career.

Busch was able to knock off a good qualifying time which set the stage for the rest of his evening. Making the transfer from his heat to the A-main put him on the outside of row #1 as several of the top qualifiers were forced to run the B-main. It was just Busch’s night to shine.

“All those late cautions had me nervous”, said Busch from victory lane. “My right rear tire started shaking.” Busch was still able to pull away on the restarts. “The car was working real good. We never really changed anything all night.”

Greg Wilson, who gave Busch fits throughout the race, lost a right rear tire while running in second place with just 4 laps to go in the 40 lap affair. He got a nose wing under Busch several times but was not able to hold on to make the pass.

Dale Blaney, who was running third at the time Wilson’s tire went down, inherited 2nd place on lap 36 with Wilson’s departure to the work area for repairs. “My tire was shaking from about mid-race on and thought I had the same tire on as Greg did and I saw his go,” said Blaney. I saw Busch’s tire had a lot of tread on it on those cautions and figured I wasn’t going to push it and we’d take what we could get.”

Defending Ohio Speedweek Champion Kelly Kinser, who was running in 4th place throughout the race, also benefited from Wilson’s misfortune. “The track was a little bit tacky around the bottom after the late models went out first and we went with too hard of a tire, but we’ll take 3rd.”

Butch Schroeder and Paul May rounded out the Top 5 as 36 cars signed into the pits this evening to do battle for the $5000 prize money put up by the All Star series.

Outsiders who were on hand to take on the locals and the All Stars included NST drivers Jason Meyers, Paul McMahan, and Brian Paulus. Brandon Wimmer who started out with the NST in the 7tw car was in the Rick Ferkel owned #0. Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. made the journey north from Mississippi to join the series on tour this week. Ben Gregg made his way all the way from Arizona to take participate in his first Ohio Speedweek.

Huggins Cams 2nd place qualifier Brock Mayes was unable to transfer from his heat, but made it into the A-main the hard way – by winning the University of Northwest Ohio B-main.

Butch Schroeder was victorious in the Haulmark Dash over Blaney, Wilson, Danny Smith, Kelly Kinser, and Tim Hunter.

Next up for the All Stars is the kick off of the 24th Annual Ohio sprint Speedweek at Attica Raceway Park in Attica, OH on Sunday June 25th. For more information, please visit www.allstarsprint.com or www.atticaracewaypark.com.

All Stars Welcome Visitors from Down Under for Ohio Speedweek

CAMARGO, IL (6-20-06) – The American Tradition – Ohio Sprint Speedweek – has appeal far and wide in the world of 410 Sprint Car Racing. The intrigue of the week long festivities attracts visitors each year from various parts of the globe to come to Ohio to experience the intensity of 7 consecutive nights of racing at 7 different tracks around the State.

This year the All Stars welcome Australian visitors from both the racing world and the media. These Ambassadors from our sister nation in 410 sprint car racing will be on hand throughout the week.

Western Australian young gun Rob Adley and his father Steve will be present at all seven races as part of the Dean Jacobs crew. Adley said that Dean Jacobs invited him to come over for the Speedweek series when he was racing ‘Down Under’ recently. "We will travel around with his team as part of the crew and hopefully I might be able to organize a (ride) over there too,” said Adley. "It will be an awesome experience for us.

WA sprint car Rookie of the Year Scott Reilly will be in Ohio racing throughout the week. Reilly was impressive in his Australian debut this past season but is looking to get more seat time. His only goal is to gain experience – he is not concerned about where he finishes, although naturally he would like to be able to qualify for an A-main or two.

Sydney sprint car superstar Troy Little will embark on his second American sprint car racing campaign. “I’m really looking forward to getting back over there and hitting the big tracks against the best the US has to offer,” stated Troy prior to his departure. “We’ll be starting off with the last four nights of the All-Stars Ohio Speedweek and then hit some Outlaw shows before Bill (Roberts – Crew chief) goes home. I’ll stay on and hopefully we’ll get about 25 races all told before we bring the car home for the Aussie season.”

Troy, through Roberts’ close ties with the World of Outlaws team of Chad Kemenah, has purchased a complete car from the 15K team. “I’ll be flat out from the moment I get there because I’ve got to go to Knoxville to pick up my tow rig that Bill McCroskey is arranging for me and my trailer that Jaymie Moyle has been looking after,” Troy explained. “Then it’s off up the road to Kemenah’s workshop and Eagle chassis and all points in between before I base myself at the workshop of Doug Kekich’s Intense Fabrications and Design and start putting the car together.”

On the media side of things, Brett Swanson - the assistant editor for a new Australian Motorsport Magazine “Racer Australia” - will be traveling across Ohio following the progress of his Australian counterparts photographing and writing content for his magazine.

It is not uncommon to see such a strong showing of racers from Down Under this time of year and as always we welcome them all to the USA and extend our All Star hospitality at each event and wish them the best of luck while they are here.

Next up for the All Star Circuit of Champions will visit Lernerville Speedway and K-C Raceway leading into Ohio Sprint Speedweek.

CAMARGO, IL (6-19-06) – The 24th Annual Ohio Sprint Speedweek is less than one week away and 410 sprint car stars from across the US will be in attendance to join forces with the All Star Circuit of Champions and Ohio local drivers to bring the fans some very exciting racing at seven different tracks over seven nights.

The All Stars will first travel to Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, PA on Friday June 23rd and then to K-C Raceway in Chillicothe, OH on June 24th as a lead-in to the original Speedweek established in 1983. This will serve as a warm up to the next seven nights of racing that will bring a $10,000 points fund to the Top 15 drivers at the end of the week. This point fund was put in place to reward the non-regular All Star member teams who choose to come and join in the week long festivities to help offset some of the fuel and operational costs associated with running seven nights in a row.

Points will be awarded throughout the week to the drivers who choose to participate. There is no entry fee. Drivers are not required to have an All Star membership to receive Speedweek points. The point fund payout is as follows:

1st = $2,000
2nd = $1,150
3rd = $900
4th = $750
5th = $700
6th = $650
7th = $600
8th = $550
9th = $500
10th = $450
11th = $400
12th = $375
13th = $350
14th = $325
15th = $300
Total = $10,000

The 2006 Ohio Sprint Speedweek kicks off at Attica on Sunday June 25th, then moves to Wayne County on Monday June 26th. The next stop is Muskingum County on Tuesday June 27th, then Sharon Speedway on Wednesday June 28th. From there its back to Fremont on Thursday June 29th and then on to Limaland on Friday June 30th.

Schatz Sweeps Homecoming Weekend at Red River Valley

WEST FARGO, ND (6-17-06) Donny Schatz made it two in a row at Red River Valley Speedway in West Fargo, ND on his homecoming weekend. Schatz was locked into the event by winning Friday’s preliminary feature. The top 4 were locked in from the previous night which also included Tyler Walker, Joey Saldana, and Craig Dollansky.

36 cars were on hand to take part in the “Duel in the Dakotas” weekend brought to you by SLS Promotions. All Star contenders included Greg Wilson, Danny Smith, Brock Mayes, Paul May, Brandon Martin, Chad Blonde, and James Mosher. The World of Outlaws Mean 15 were all on hand for this co-sanctioned event as well as several drivers from the Northern Outlaw Sprint Association to make for another great show for the fans.

Schatz jumped out to the lead on the start and never looked back, leading all 30 laps of the $12,000 to win event. Schatz maneuvered his way through lapped traffic masterfully as he distanced himself from the challengers and kept the hometown crowd on their feet.

“To get in victory lane here at home, there is nothing more exciting,” said Schatz. “We fell a little short last year and tried to make up what we could this year. We raced today with heavy hearts. The loss of Fred Brownfield was a shock to the racing world. Life has to go on for us, and we send out sympathies to his family.”

The A-main started with the usual 4-abreast salute to the fans as they fell into the “missing man” formation in honor of Mr. Brownfield. There was also a moment of silence after qualifying in honor of the respected track promoter and NST President.

Walker and Saldana battled wildly for the runner up spot, trading the position several times throughout the race. Walker eventually held down the position with Saldana finishing third.

Further back it was All Star points leader Greg Wilson finishing 15th for the second night in a row. Greg had a great qualifying run in 6th place and then finished 9th in the Dash putting him inside of row 5 to start the main event.

The 18th through 21st spots were all held by All Star contenders. Danny Smith, Brock Mayes, Chad Blonde, and James Mosher battled each other for season points trying to better position themselves for the upcoming Ohio Speedweek run.

Paul May, who spun in his heat and missed the transfer by one spot, was forced to run the B-main where he again missed the transfer by one spot ending his night. Brandon Martin, who suffered mechanical problems in Friday’s A-main was not able to transfer from the B as he finished 8th.

Next up for the All Stars is Friday June 23rd at Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, PA and then on to K-C Raceway in Chillicothe, OH on Saturday June 24th. From there the series dives right into Ohio Sprint Speedweek on June 25th at Attica, June 26th at Wayne County, June 27th at Muskingum County, June 28th at Sharon, June 29th at Fremont, June 30th at Limaland, and July 1st at Eldora.

Schatz Delivers for Hometown Crowd in Fargo

Donny Schatz’s homecoming was a popular one as he gave the fans their money’s worth as they cheered on the local star who leads the World of Outlaws series points. Schatz has been gaining momentum over the last several races and has not finished outside the Top 7 for weeks.

35 cars were on hand to do battle in Fargo at the Red River Valley Speedway on Night #1 of the Duel in the Dakotas event. Schatz qualified 6th, transferred from his heat and then was able to win the dash, putting him on the pole for the 25 lap preliminary event.

Joey Saldana jumped out to the early lead, but Schatz ran him down and took the lead on lap 20. He managed to hold off a hard charging Tyler Walker, Saldana, and Craig Dollansky to land in victory lane.

“Nothing is better than getting to victory lane at home,” Schatz said. “We want to thank everyone for coming out. Joey and I ran laps side by side in the dash and it’s not very often you have that anymore. It was a good fun night for us, and I hope the people enjoyed it. There’s going to be even more tomorrow.”

Tyler Walker, who spent the last few seasons in the NASCAR ranks, had an impressive run from 6th to 2nd. “It’s good to be back in a position fighting for wins,” Walker said. “I have to thank Guy Forbrook for believing in me. It’s good to be back in a race car that is capable of winning every night. It’s a lot of fun for me and everybody onboard. It’s a pleasure to drive, and I’m having a lot of fun. It’s good to be back in a sprint car.”

All Star points leader Greg Wilson finished the night in 15th place with a solid run that will keep him on top of the All Stars season points. Paul May had a good run against the Outlaws on the big mile speedway as well and finished 18th. Danny Smith, Brock Mayes, and Brandon Martin all had problems in the race that put them at 21st, 23rd, and 24th respectively. Chad Blonde spun in the B-main and was unable to transfer. James Mosher scratched from the B-main with mechanical problems.

The points battle is heating up further down the list as only 13 points now separate 2nd place Chad Blonde and 3rd place Brock Mayes. Chad is only about 100 points behind leader Wilson. Paul May sits in 4th place just 15 points behind Mayes.

Tonight the All Stars will take on the Outlaws in Night #2 of the Duel in the Dakotas for $12,000 to win.

Haudenschild Electrifies Crowd at Powercom

BEAVER DAM, WI (6-14-06) – by Bryan Autullo –The All Star Circuit of Champions hit the road once again this season to join the Outlaws for another co-sanctioned event at Powercom Park in Beaver Dam, WI. This was the first leg of a short tour out West that will see 3 races over 4 nights. Both groups will continue West to Fargo, ND from here.

Tonight the All Stars and Outlaws were hosted by SLS Promotions and the Bumper to Bumper IRA sprint series. 36 cars signed in for tonight’s racing action and put on another fantastic show for the fans. Craig Dollansky set quick time with a lap of 11.676.

Jac “The Wild Child” Haudenschild electrified the crowd at Powercom Park as he took the lead with 12 laps to go in the 40 lap affair and held on for the win over Donny Schatz and Craig Dollansky.

All Star series point leader Greg Wilson, who started the night in the hole by qualifying 24th, made the best of a bad situation in the A-main. The w20 was lined up on the inside of the last row of the 24 car field and Greg managed to flat foot it around the speedway and drove all the way up to a 7th place finish at the end of the 40 lapper.

Chad Blonde, who started 9th in the main event, looked to be on his way to a good run when disaster struck as he put the Blonde Motorsports #5b over the retaining wall ending his night on lap 15. Chad was not injured but the car had far too much damage to continue.

Danny Smith was having a great night running 7th when he suffered front end damage on lap 32 that took him out of the race. Brock Mayes was caught up in an early incident with Jason Martin that ended his night just a few laps into the feature event. Paul May motored from his 21st starting position up to an 11th place finish and Brandon Martin came home 14th after starting 17th. James Mosher had problems early and was unable to transfer to the A-main.

Heat races were won by Brooke Tattnell, Todd Hepfner, Paul May, and Chad Kemenah.

The Dash was won by Outlaws point leader Donny Schatz which put him on the pole for tonight’s main event.

Sammy Swindell won the B-main piloting Terry McCarl’s #24 car as McCarl is still recovering from a broken leg.

From here the All Star series will follow the Outlaws to Red River Valley Speedway in Fargo, ND on June 16th and 17th. For more information on the All Star Circuit of Champions, visit www.allstarsprint.com. 2006 All Star merchandise is now available online through the web site.

Ohio Sprint Speedweek - An American Tradition

CAMARGO, IL (6-8-06) – If you are an All Star Circuit of Champions fan of sprint car racing in general, you know there is one week every summer that is like no other. Ohio Sprint Speedweek is seven nights of racing at seven Ohio tracks with over $197,000 up for grabs in prize money.

We will preview each night of racing over the next two weeks with additional information on each track so that you can begin planning to attend these events. This will be a week that any race fan will not want to miss. With the All Stars paying a $10,000 Speedweek Point Fund on top of the nightly purse, it will be added incentive for the best drivers to make the trip.

Saldana Captures Co-Sanction Cash at Terre Haute

TERRE HAUTE, IN (6-4-06) – by Bryan Autullo – The All Stars had a “long way to go and a short time to get there” as the song goes from the 1977 Smokey and the Bandit movie soundtrack, but everyone made it from Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, PA to Terre Haute, IN just in time for the co-sanctioned event with the world of Outlaws.

Paul May, who lives in Terre Haute, was most likely the last to arrive as they hit a coyote somewhere in Western PA, tearing a fuel line off the team transporter and putting them several hours behind schedule to make repairs. They made it to the track on time, but the coyote wasn’t so lucky.

The All Stars, having raced in Central PA on Saturday night, made the 680 mile overnight trip back West to Indiana and fatigue was setting in by race time. They still managed to take on the World of Outlaws on the semi-banked mile and put on a great show for the fans despite not being able to do proper maintenance on their cars after the long journey between the two facilities left them with little time to work or sleep.

37 cars signed in for tonight’s event at the Action Track. The Outlaws dominated the Top 10 spots with Joey Saldana taking the checkered flag ahead of Craig Dollansky who made a late race charge to the front. On the initial start it was front row starter Dean Jacobs who took the lead on lap one, only to relinquish it to Saldana on lap two. Jacobs is subbing for injured driver Terry McCarl in the #24 World of Outlaws ride.

After a caution for Jamie Martin on lap 2, the restart saw Saldana jump to the lead with Jacobs in tow. Dollansky and Tattnell battled side by side for 4th as Chad Kemenah and Jac Haudenschild raced side by side behind them.

Once Saldana hit lapped traffic on lap 10, Jacobs got under him in turn 2 and lead down the backstretch, only to give up the lead once again on lap 11. Saldana then cleared lapped traffic and began to pull away.

At the halfway point, Saldana lead over Jacobs, Danny Lasoski, and Dollansky as Tim Schaffer had moved up from his 23rd starting spot to 11th place.

On lap 21, Tattnell lost a motor, bringing out a red flag for oil on the track. The running order was Saldana, Jacobs, Lasoski, Dollansky, Kemenah, Haudenschild, Tyler Walker, Jason Solwold, Paul McMahan, and Chad Blonde rounding out the Top 10.

On the restart, Dollansky jumped to 3rd behind Saldana and Lasoski. Jacobs fell to 4th and Schaffer was now up to 5th. Kemenah was 6th and Donny Schatz had moved from 21st to 7th with just 4 laps to go.

On lap 27, Paul McMahan spun in front of the leaders on the front stretch with two flat tires on the right side of his car bringing out the final caution and setting up a 3 lap dash to the finish.

Dollansky got around Lasoski on the restart, but couldn’t catch Saldana who went on to win the event after 30 exciting laps of racing.

Heats were won by Schatz, Tattnell, Jacobs, and Swindell.

The Dash was won by Dean Jacobs.

The B-main was won by Jason Solwold.

The All Stars will be back in action with the World of Outlaws on June 14th at Powercom Park in Beaver Dam, WI. From there the series will follow the Outlaws to Red River Valley Speedway in Fargo, ND on June 16th and 17th.

Hodnett Handles All Star Invaders at Lincoln

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA (6-3-06) – by Bryan Autullo – The All Star Circuit of Champions invaded Posse territory again this weekend to take on the ever so tough Central PA drivers at Williams Grove and Lincoln. Mother Nature had other plans on Friday night as the event at Williams Grove was rained out and rescheduled for later this season.

Saturday’s weather was much more cooperative, and the All Stars pulled into Lincoln Speedway with their game faces on, ready to get some racing in with so many events rained out around the mid-west over the past month.

In the end it was Posse veteran Greg Hodnett who dominated the race, holding off Doug Esh in heavy lapped traffic to win his second race of the year. Thirty-five 410 sprint cars signed into the pits to run for the increased purse brought by the traveling series and once again the Posse pocketed the All Star’s $5000 to win paycheck.

Hodnett, who started on the front row, ran away from the field with a comfortable lead before hitting lapped traffic 8 laps into the event. Doug Esh began to close on the leader in traffic as Dewease moved into the 3rd spot on lap 17.
Brian Monteith brushed the wall in turn 3 bringing out the 2nd caution of the event. On the restart, Esh had 4 lapped cars between him and the leader. He navigated around the lapped cars as Hodnett built another comfortable lead, but as he got into lapped traffic again Esh put the pressure on. Hodnett crossed the line on lap 30 just a car length ahead of Esh for the win.

"We got pretty lucky with our starting spot and took advantage of it," said Hodnett. "I tried not to stop and go...I just wanted to keep up my momentum and that’s how I caught and passed a lot of those guys. It got to where I kind of needed to be on the bottom, but we weren’t good on the bottom, so I kind of kept moving and moving and struggled a lot there over the last five laps...but I hung on for the win."

Rounding out the Top 10 was Dewease Nikki Young, Eric Stambaugh, All Star points leader Greg Wilson, Jeff Shepard, Todd Shaffer, Montieth, and Michael Carber. Other All Stars making the A-main event were Brock Mayes (11th), Chad Blonde (12th), Brandon Martin (14th), and Paul May (20th).

"Those guys did a great job," said Hodnett about the All Stars. "They have to bust ass and get over to Terre Haute, IN, for tomorrow night’s show...we appreciate them guys coming out and always enjoy having them, but we always enjoy beating them too!"

All Stars Swing Into Summer Battling Outlaws and Posse

CAMARGO, IL (5-28-06) – The All Star Circuit of Champions will enter the month of June with a bang. The series will visit Wayne County Speedway on Thursday June 1st for another co-sanctioned shootout with the World of Outlaws. Wayne County – formerly known as Buckeye Speedway – has not seen the Outlaws for 21 years and the All Stars hope to have a slight advantage over the traveling group at the Ohio track that the series visits each summer during Ohio Speedweek.

“I think there is a lot of tradition there from years past and with Jac Haudenschild and the Jacobs boys all in that area we think there is a draw there,” stated Steve Sinclair of SLS Promotions who is bringing the World of Outlaws and All Stars to Wayne County Speedway. “Bringing the All Stars and Outlaws together, that hasn’t been done there so hopefully it is something that can be built on for years to come.”

Steve Sinclair has been instrumental in the idea to put these two groups together on the same tracks on the same nights. “We’re trying to give the fans added value by bringing the All Stars with the Outlaws and it’s been a good working relationship so far between the two series. We’re looking at this race and track as a ‘battleground’ of sorts, that is why we chose a mid-week date so we can hopefully attract some of the Pennsylvania guys and the guys who run weekly at the other tracks in Ohio.”

From there, the All Stars head back into hostile territory in Central PA to take on the Posse at the fast mile Williams Grove Speedway on Friday and then they will move down the road to Lincoln Speedway on Saturday. Lance Dewease and Greg Hodnett both came away with victories the last time the All Stars visited these two facilities.

All Stars Greg Wilson, Chad Blonde, Brock Mayes, Danny Smith, Paul May, Dale Blaney, Brandon Martin, James Mosher, Barry Ruble, and Neil Shepherd will be taking on the PA Posse regulars who have traditionally been tough on any traveling series who invades their turf. The All Stars will get another opportunity to try to steal a victory in Central PA.

Abbottstown, PA is 648 miles from Terre Haute, IN, but the All Stars will make the overnight tow on the final night of the weekend, book ending the 4-day run with another co-sanctioned shootout versus the World of Outlaws on Sunday at the Terre Haute Action Track. SLS Promotions will bring the two series together again for the 2nd time in just 4 days at the Indiana speed plant.

Dewease Dominates Bob Weikert Memorial at Port Royal

PORT ROYAL, PA (5-20-06) – by Bryan Autullo – The All Star Circuit of Champions made their way East to Port Royal Speedway’s semi-banked mile oval in Port Royal, PA. Veteran PA Posse driver Lance Dewease dominated the race by leading all 30 laps at the track where he has won countless other A-main events over the years. He showed tonight that his experience at this Central PA dirt plant was like money in the bank as he took home the $5000 prize money. Mike Erdley was 2nd, Danny Smith came home 3rd, Keith Kauffman took 4th, and Greg Hodnett rounded out the Top 5.
Dewease took the initial green flag and rocketed into the lead followed by Rick Lafferty who was in a fierce battle for 2nd with Brook Weibly. Danny Smith and Mike Erdley chased down the leaders as they battled for 4th place lap after lap.
By lap 10, Dewease was entering heavy traffic which allowed Lafferty to close the gap. Weibly, Smith, and Erdley duked it out behind the leaders. Lafferty started putting pressure on Dewease by mid race, but was involved in an unfortunate accident on the front stretch on lap 21 that put him on his night his lid and ended his night.
On the restart it was Dewease followed by Erdley, D. Smith, Greg Hodnett, Keith Kauffman, Weibly, Mark Smith, Jeff Shepard, Todd Shaffer, and TJ Stutts. All Star points leader Greg Wilson was just outside of the Top 10 on the restart.
When the green flag dropped, Dewease drove away from the rest of the field to victory followed by Erdley, D. Smith, Kauffman (who passed Hodnett at the finish line), Hodnett, Weibly, M. Smith, Shepard, Shaffer, and Stutts.
Mark Smith won the B-main after crashing on lap1 of his heat race. They were able to get the car back together and then take the B-main checkered to transfer to the A-main. Also transferring out of the B-main behind Smith was Greg Wilson, Dan Shetler, and Daryl Stimeling.
Paul May won the All Star Haulmark Dash. May ran side by side with Brandon Martin early in the 6 lap affair and was able to pull ahead of him to claim the victory. Martin was 2nd followed by Dewease, Hodnett, and Danny Smith.

All Stars Head East to Port Royal for Bob Weikert Memorial

CAMARGO, IL (5-15-06) – The All Star Circuit of Champions series is packing up and heading East into Posse country to take on the PA elite at Port Royal Speedway on May 20th. The Posse is historically tough to beat in their own back yard and they will be there to try to steal the All Star loot. Greg Wilson leads the All Stars into hostile territory as the current points leader of the series, with Brock Mayes and Chad Blonde nipping at his heels. Paul May and Butch Schroeder round out the Top 5. The PA drivers will not make it easy on the travelers, but the All Star drivers are up to the challenge and it will be another great showdown between the PA Posse and the invading All Star series.

The 30-lap event will be the 4th Annual Bob Weikert Memorial and pays $5,000 to win. Fred Rahmer won the race in 2003 and 2004 with Todd Shaffer being the defending champ of the Memorial race run each year in honor of the late legendary PA sprint car owner.

It has also been reported that four-time All Star Champion Kenny “The Mouse” Jacobs will be piloting the #55 car for injured driver Mike Wagner this weekend. The All Stars wish the best for Mike and a speedy recovery from neck injuries sustained on May 6th at Port Royal.

“Ohio’s Fastest 3/8 Mile” to Host the Ohio Challenge II

CAMARGO, IL (5-7-06) – The All Star Circuit of Champions are preparing for another shootout with the World of Outlaws on Saturday May 13th at the fast, high banked 3/8 mile K-C Raceway. The showdown has been dubbed “The Ohio Challenge II” by promoter Jim Neir.

The original “Ohio Challenge” was rained out last season and was not re-scheduled. However, the interest generated by the fans and the demand to bring these two series together prompted K-C Raceway to make it happen in 2006.

The concept of this showdown between the two longest running winged 410 sprint car groups is what set the stage for the Showdown Series between the two groups in 2006 with several co-sanctioned events across the Midwest.

K-C Raceway has been a regular stop for both traveling groups, but never have they been there on the same night. The All Stars have recently added some big guns to the traveling tour and the Outlaws will bring their band of thieves who will try to steal the loot. The “tin stars” of “America’s Series” will try to keep that money safe in Ohio.

All Star Points Chase Heating Up as Summer Approaches

CAMARGO, IL (5-7-06) – by Bryan Autullo – The points chase is beginning to heat up among the All Star Circuit of Champions as we approach the busy summer months. June and July are packed full of All Star points races and things could begin to change very rapidly. Greg Wilson has maintained his lead throughout the young season, but Brock Mayes and Chad Blonde are closing in fast.

Wilson, who picked up a win at Attica Raceway on his night off last Friday, came into Fremont with a mission – to win the race and keep his points lead. An unfortunate incident with lapped traffic while he was leading the A-main sent him to restart from the tail and Mayes and Blonde picked up a few points on the leader.

Dean Jacobs won the race, but back through the pack the points battles were heating up. Only 12 points now separates 2nd place Mayes and 3rd place Blonde. Mayes is only 23 points outside of Wilson’s 1st place total. Paul May held onto 4th place this week as Butch Schroeder picked up one spot moving ahead of Ruble for 5th place. Dale Blaney also moved up a spot to 8th , Tim Hunter moved into the 10th position and Danny Smith moved up to 11th place this week.

Chad Blonde, who picked up the feature win at Butler Speedway on his night off on Friday, still leads the Rookie of the Year points as Brandon Martin and James Mosher try to close the gap. Brandon is in 2nd place by one point over Mosher.

The All Star series will be heading to KC Raceway on Saturday May 13th for the next shootout in the Showdown Series between the All Stars and the World of Outlaws.

Dean Jacobs Finds Victory on American Soil with "America's Series"

FREMONT, OH (5-6-06) – by Bryan Autullo – Fresh off his Western Australia AHG Sprintcar Series championship in Australia, Dean managed to find success back on American soil at Fremont Speedway in only his second night out this season with the Ray Pullins #29 team. Dean stole the lead from early race leader – and current All Star points leader – Greg Wilson on lap 14.
Wilson had jumped out to an early lead from his pole position starting spot and pulled away from the rest of the field. There was a caution for debris on lap 6, but on the restart Wilson pulled away as Kelly Kinser and Caleb Griffith battled for 2nd place.
Wilson worked the high side of the track at a blistering pace. He looked to be well on his way to his second feature win of the weekend. He took home the prize money from Attica Raceway Park on Friday night in non-sanctioned local action from his 15th starting position. Several other All Star teams were also in attendance.
By lap 11, Jacobs had worked his way up to 2nd and Chad Blonde (who won at Butler Speedway on Friday night) was up to 4th as Wilson had Verl Warnimont’s #w20 rocketing through the turns. Unfortunately for Greg, a lapped car spun in front of him causing him to go off the high side of turn 3 and into the foam barriers. There was little damage to the car thanks to Fremont’s “soft walls”, but Wilson would have to restart on the tail.
On the restart it was Jacobs, Kinser, Blonde, Brock Mayes, Danny Smith, Caleb Griffith, Kevin Huntley up from 14th, Byron Reed and Butch Schroeder up from 17th.
Jacobs now pulled away from the field with an open track in front of him. With 12 laps to go the leader was into traffic and Kinser began to close the gap. Jacobs, who is famous for hanging it out on the top edge of the speedway must have seen the white #4k behind him and decided to protect the bottom – the preferred line by Kinser over the years. Jacobs had his left front bouncing over the low side berm for the remainder of the race giving Kinser no room to poke a nose under him.
When Jacobs took the white flag, Kinser was on his rear bumper, but Jacobs went on to the win. He was followed by Kinser, Mayes, Blonde, Reed, Smith, Dale Blaney, Huntley, Griffith, and Rob Chaney who was in Stan Courtad’s #9x.
"I know I've been critical of this place in the past, but as I get older I appreciate the history of Fremont and how difficult it is to win here," said Jacobs beside his Waverly Quik Lube sponsored #29 on his first ever victory at "The Track That Action Built." "To come back from Australia and win in only our second night out with this team this season is awesome."

"I have to dedicate this to my dad...we lost him this winter and it's hard to come to the track knowing he's not here. We also had a buddy lose a son in a car wreck last week. We have both their names on the car," added Jacobs.
Kelly Kinser said, "I tried to rattle Dean's cage a couple of times by showing him my nose, but he did what a good racer is supposed to do...stay your line. We gave this Crone Lumber car a good run and we'll take second."
Third place finisher Brock Mayes stated, "This is where a lot of us started...so to come here and be on the front stretch at the end of the night is very special. We have a lot of confidence right now." Mayes began his career in the 305 sprints at Fremont Speedway.
In Haulmark Dash action, Wilson ran hard into the first turn from his front row starting position and took it a bit too high slipping off the top and dropping to the tail. Danny Smith took advantage and ran away with it to the checkered followed by Blonde, Blaney, Mayes, and Mark Keegan.. The cheers could be heard from all around as the huge Fremont crowd showed their support for the veteran Smith.
When asked if he was happy to have some success after all he has been through recently, he stated, “I’m just happy to win the Trophy Dash. I’m grateful for support and generosity of all the fans. Jan wanted the money to be donated to a family whose kid has Leukemia whose house recently burned down. We took them a check the other day for $5200.”
The 15 lap B-main had plenty of action as James Mosher looped it out on lap 1, but managed to keep going as he lost several positions. Then Bobby Clark spun bringing out the first caution. On the restart, Kyle Cummins had a flat right rear bringing out the 2nd caution. By lap 5, Mosher had worked his way back up to 8th, but a spinning John Ivy left Mosher no place to go and he clipped Ivy with the right front. Mosher was on his way back to the front, but the damage was too great to continue. Mike Linder had the fastest car on the speedway coming from 14th to 5th by lap 6. Ryan Coniam caught the low side berm on lap 6 and flipped up the track ending his night. In the closing laps you could have thrown a blanket over the top 4 as Byron Reed, Linder, Brandon Martin, and Neil Shepard battled 2 and 3 wide. All four transferred to the main event.
The All Stars will be back in action on Saturday May 13th at K-C Raceway in Chillicothe, Ohio. The event is co-sanctioned with the World of Outlaws and is dubbed “The Ohio Challenge II”. The original “Ohio Challenge” was rained out last season and was never rescheduled.

All Stars to Invade “The Track That Action Built” – Fremont Speedway

CAMARGO, IL (4-30-06) – The All Star Circuit of Champions is preparing to take on the tough Ohio regulars at Jim Ford’s Fremont Speedway in Fremont, Ohio this Saturday, May 6th. Many drivers on the All Star tour have cut their teeth on the 1/3 mile clay oval located at the Sandusky County Fairgrounds. All Star legends Frankie Kerr, Rick Ferkel, Al Liskai, and Jim Linder called Fremont home over the years. Four time All Star champion Chad Kemenah got his start at Fremont Speedway as well. Current All Star drivers Greg Wilson, Brock Mayes, and Brandon Martin have been turning laps at Fremont for several years.

Tough locals such as Byron Reed and Mark Keegan can give any traveling series fits when they invade Attica and Fremont. Both are current All Star members, but do not travel with the series full time. Other locals who could make things tough for the All Stars are John Ivy, Rob Chaney, Craig Mintz, Andrew Palker, Mike Linder, Caleb Griffith, and Bobby Clark just to name a few.

One thing is certain; the All Stars have always put on an exciting show at Fremont Speedway. The car count will be high in the heart of 410 country and the competition level will be top notch as it has always been throughout the years.

The All Star series was off this past weekend, but the All Star drivers didn’t take a break. Friday night at Attica Raceway Park, Brock Mayes finished 2nd in a make up race from an earlier rain-out, then went on to win the A-main on a last lap pass of Byron Reed. Butch Schroeder took the win at KC Raceway on Saturday night. Greg Wilson finished 2nd behind Mike Linder at Fremont Speedway on Saturday as well. Other All Star regulars Brandon Martin, Chad Blonde, Neil Shepard, and Tim Hunter were in action at Attica, KC, and Fremont over the weekend as well.

Greg Wilson Leads All Star Points; Blonde Leads Rookie Chase

CAMARGO, IL (4-23-06) – By Bryan Autullo – All Star veteran Greg “Wild Man” Wilson has retained the All Star Circuit of Champions season points lead after a fierce battle at Eldora Speedway this past weekend. Wilson’s car owner, Verl Warnimont, leads the Owner Points with his All Star Plumbing & Heating sponsored #w20.

Friday night’s co-sanctioned event with the World of Outlaws was rained out at Lawrenceburg Speedway and has been rescheduled for July 7th. Saturday had the appearance of a co-sanctioned event as many of the Outlaws made the short trip from Southern Indiana up to Western Ohio’s Eldora Speedway.

The All Stars had their work cut out for them battling for season championship points amongst themselves as they fought for track position against the Outlaw teams. All but one All Star team made the A-main making the mix of cars in the main event an even 50/50. Twelve All Star teams and twelve outsiders made up the starting grid. It was Mean 15 member Jac Haudenschild who would win the event with several All Star teams scattered throughout the Top 15.

The Rookie of the Year chase is starting to heat up as Brandon Martin and James Mosher are tied for second place with 6 points each behind Chad Blonde’s 13 points. Blonde has had an exceptional start to the 2006 season, but the other contenders have begun to find their comfort level with the traveling series and may soon start to put some pressure on the leader.

Greg Wilson also leads the Haulmark Dash points chase. New in 2006, points will be kept separately and will be tallied throughout the season for the Haulmark Dash points fund to be paid to the Top 6 drivers at the end of the season. Points for the Dash will be awarded the same as in years past and will also count toward the Series Championship points.

The All Star series will be off this coming weekend and will be back in action at Fremont Speedway on Saturday May 6th. Visit the official home of America’s Series at www.allstarsprint.com for more information regarding the All Star Circuit of Champions.

The "Wild Child" Puts on Clinic at Eldora Speedway

ROSSBURG, OH (4-22-06) – By Bryan Autullo - The “Wild Child” Jac Haudenschild showed everyone in attendance at the fast, high-banked Eldora Speedway how he got his nickname. Starting 15th behind some of the top names in the business, Jac worked his way to the front with bonsai moves, slide jobs, and his patented high line around the mile dirt monster in Western Ohio. He sliced and diced his way through the field of All Star, Outlaw, and NST regulars with the precision of a surgeon. He was a man on a mission, or to be more exact - a man on a missile. Jac asked car owner Rick Wright if they could go run at Eldora with the All Stars and Rick said “Only if you go win it.” Jac didn’t let the boss down, putting the Wright Construction #35 in the winners circle on a night plagued with several short rain delays that kept the moisture in the track and made for a very fast, multi-groove racing surface.

On lap 8, former All Star champion Kevin Huntley got into the fence in turn two bringing out the first caution of the 30 lap event. When the green flag waved, Joey Saldana was leading with Blaney, Kemenah, Pittman, Mayes and Haudenschild rounding out the Top 6. Saldana in the Curb Records #9, who led the first 17 laps of the race, relinquished his lead to Haudenschild on lap 18, followed by a fast closing Chad Kemenah in the 15k UUI sponsored machine. Kemenah and Saldana battled for several laps along with Dale Blaney in the George Fisher #2 car. Saldana closed the gap in traffic and made several attempts to dive through the turns to pick up ground on the leader, but Haudenschild’s experience with the high side of the race track proved too much for the hard charging driver in the Kasey Kahne owned #9.

Randy Hannagan, who started 14th, quietly made his way through the field picking off cars lap after lap and patiently making moves through traffic that would put him into 5th place at the checkered flag. Paul McMahan who made the tow overnight all the way from Hutchinson, KS put the Tony Stewart owned Bass Pro Shops #20 into 6th place at the line. Rob Chaney in his 2006 debut in Denny Ashworth’s #92 car finished 7th. All Star Circuit of Champions points leader Greg Wilson in the All Star Plumbing & Heating sponsored #w20 came home 8th. Daryn Pittman finished 9th. Danny Smith, who made his return after losing his wife to cancer last weekend, rounded out the Top 10.

The Haulmark Dash was as good as any race that has been run all season with All Star members Dale Blaney and Danny Smith exchanging the lead and racing side by side, wheel to wheel down the back stretch, for 6 laps with Blaney coming out on top. Brock Mayes, Butch Schroeder, Greg Wilson, and Tim Hunter rounded out the 6 finishing spots to gain points toward the season-end Haulmark Dash Points Fund.

The B-main was another hard fought battle between Rookie of the Year points leader Chad Blonde, Rookie contender Brandon Martin, and Paul May. The three ran nose to tail throughout most of the race. Blonde took the checkered flag, followed by May, Martin, Rose, Aldrich, and Ruble. Not making the transfer to the A-main was Jason Martin, James Mosher, Kent Wolters who spun early, and Eddie Neumeister who flipped gently trying to avoid the spin. The #1 of Sean Robinson was unable to make the call and scratched for the evening.

The Outerwears Pre-filters Heat was won by Jeremy Campbell. The B&B Oval Track Products Heat was won by Kevin Huntley. The Engler Machine and Tool Heat was won by Jac Haudenschild.

The All Stars will take next weekend off and then be back in action on Saturday May 6th at “The Track That Action Built” – Fremont Speedway in Fremont, Ohio. For more information on the All Stars, visit www.allstarsprint.com. The All Star virtual merchandise trailer should be up and running soon and you will be able to order All Star merchandise online.

All Stars to Battle Outlaws at Lawrenceburg before Heading to Eldora

CAMARGO, IL (4-16-06) – The All Star Circuit of Champions will take on the World of Outlaws again with the 3rd co-sanctioned event of the 2006 season on Friday April 21st. This time it will be on a mile bull ring in Southern Indiana. It has been described as "having 24 fighter jets in your living room". Lawrenceburg’s tight quarters will make for some of the best action so far this season as the two longest running 410 winged sprint car series do battle on a short, high banked dirt track.

From there, the series travels back into Ohio to take on the big dirt monster known as Eldora Speedway. The series visited the high banks just a few weeks ago in what looked like a scaled down version of the Knoxville Nationals with most of the best 410 winged sprint car drivers in the country on hand. Greg Wilson will be trying to hold onto his series points lead throughout the weekend. Brock Mayes and Chad Blonde are not far behind. Blonde also leads the Rookie of the Year points going into the weekend.

(Note: All Star member Danny Smith recently lost his wife to cancer and is taking some time off from racing. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers).

Wilson Backs Up Prediction with Attica Coors Light Spring Nationals Win

ATTICA, OH (4-15-06) – By Brian Liskai and Bryan Autullo
Greg Wilson made a bold prediction from victory lane after winning the All Star Circuit of Champions Haulmark Dash Saturday on the second night of the 15th Annual Coors Light Spring Nationals at Attica Raceway Park: "I'll be back up here in a little while."

Wilson made good on that promise in front of the packed grandstands to claim the 40 lap feature win, his first for new car owner Verl Warnimont. The win moved the Benton Ridge, Ohio driver into the All Star point lead.

"We always run good at Attica. To accomplish this first win for Verl in front of this huge crowd is just awesome," said Wilson beside his All Star Plumbing and Heating sponsored #w20. "I found a good line, high around one and two and low around three and four and my crew just gave me an easy car to drive. It was just a matter of saving the tires and not slipping off the edge."

Wilson dedicated the victory to fellow All Star competitor Danny Smith, whose wife succumbed to cancer earlier in the day. "This is such a sad day for our racing family. Danny is a great guy and our thoughts and prayers go out to him and his family," said Wilson. Information on where you can send cards, flowers, or donations will be posted later this week on the All Star web site.

35 drivers signed into the pits on the second night of racing at Attica and saw a much different racing surface. The Attica 305 sprints were also on hand to provide the support action for the evening. The heavy cushion gave way to a smooth, slick, racy surface that had three grooves of racing.

Stevie Smith jumped into the early lead from his pole starting position in the feature and built a commanding lead over Brock Mayes and Wilson who battled back and forth. Catastrophe struck Smith on lap 18, as he made contact with the lapped machine of Todd Heller in turn two and spun, sending him to the tail. At the 2005 Spring Nationals, Smith encountered the exact same situation late in the race, when contact with a lapped car gave the win to Danny Smith.

On the restart, Wilson had two lapped cars between he and second place Mayes, with fast qualifier Kevin Huntley in third, followed by Byron Reed, Butch Schroeder, Mark Keegan, Mike Linder and Craig Mintz.

While Wilson cruised to a commanding lead positions third through eighth changed every lap. At the half way mark, Wilson led over Mayes, Huntley, Schroeder, Keegan and Reed. On lap 28, Huntley and Mayes waged the battle for second. The second and last caution of the feature would fly on lap 31 for a spinning Reed. On the restart Wilson would have a three lap car advantage over Mayes, Huntley, Keegan, Mintz, Linder, and now a fast closing Dale Blaney who had started 14th.

With five laps to go, all eyes were on Smith, who had steadily worked his way from the tail after his spin to seventh. With three laps to go, Wilson was cruising, and Blaney had moved into second, with Mayes third, Linder fourth and now Smith into fifth. Smith used the very bottom of the track in turns three and four to move around Linder the next lap by and went to the high side around Mayes in turns one and two to take third.

Wilson held a five car length advantage at the checkered, with Blaney, Smith, Linder, Mayes, Mintz, Huntley, Keegan, Schroeder, and Bryan Scott rounding out the top 10.

"We had a good weekend for the first time out this year...a second and a fifth," said Blaney beside his George Fisher #2. "It was just a matter of being patient and staying in your groove."

Smith was upset with himself after tangling with the lapped machine. "I was too worried about where Greg was running and not concentrating on where I needed to be. After I spun, I just had to calm down...I knew I had a good car. I just went back to the line I should have been running and started picking them off. My hat's off to Greg, he ran a good race."

One side note on the evening is that Neil Shepard, the 16 year old son of former All Star champion Terry Shepard made his 410 sprint car racing debut this weekend in the family owned #4n car. Neil spent the last three years running mini-sprints, and in only his second night out he managed to qualify 13th and transfer out of his heat to the A-Main. He also finished 4th in the Haulmark Dash.

The season points have been shaken up this weekend with the addition of several new All Star members and the loss of a few who are already full time members of the WoO or the NST. They had scheduled races on Saturday with their respective series and were not in attendance. Visit www.allstarsprint.com for all the latest news and for the updated series points. The information will be available online soon. Also, look for the new All Star “Cyber Merchandise Trailer” to open soon so you can order your All Star apparel online.

Next stop for the All Stars is April 21st at Lawrenceburg Speedway for another co-sanctioned World of Outlaws show and then April 22nd back at the famed Eldora Speedway.

Terry McCarl Takes Attica Spring Nationals Opener

ATTICA, OH (4-14-06) – By Brian Liskai and Bryan Autullo
The All Star Circuit of Champions rolled into Northern Ohio under threatening skies once again, and again the weather gods spared the series as only a few rain drops fell prior to hot laps. The cars and fans came out in full force. 41 cars made the tow to Attica Raceway Park’s 15th Annual Coors Light Spring Nationals. There weren’t many seats left open as the fans in this region appreciate the great competitive racing that the All Star’s always bring to town. This race was like a marathon, with Altoona, Iowa's Terry McCarl surviving for the victory. McCarl just became an All Star member this past week and then put an exclamation point on his membership form with the win tonight.

The 40-lap A-main took over an hour before the checkered finally flew, as there were three red flags and four cautions slowing the action. Nobody was hurt, but there was a lot of twisted metal exiting the speedway on the hook.

McCarl, who currently sits third in the World of Outlaws point standings, admitted he was nervous leading. "I have had so many shows won here only to slip off the banking. They did a nice job with the track tonight and you could race all over the place," said McCarl beside his Big Game Tree Stand, Bosma Poultry sponsored #24. "This wasn't easy by any means. The All Stars are tough and the Attica regulars always race you hard. I screwed up at one point...moving my wing too far back and it made the car too tight. On that last restart I moved the wing forward and the car just took off."

The start of the feature saw Kevin Huntley spin in turn one. On the restart, 2005 ARP track champion Byron Reed and Paul May flipped hard down the front stretch. The third time wasn't the charm, as Ryan Coniam looped his Miller Rigging car in turn four on the next restart.

On the fourth try, Mark Keegan, the all-time winningest driver at Attica, bolted into the lead from his outside front row starting spot, with Greg Wilson, Andrew Palker, McCarl and Stevie Smith in tow. Keegan also became an All Star member this week and was looking to make a statement with a victory. The red would fly on lap five when Jon Trudeau tipped over in turn four, as Rob Chaney, driving a team car to Craig Mintz, stopped to avoid the crash.

Before the green would wave, Andrew Palker, who had moved into second, would duck into the pits to replace his fuel cap and would have to go to the tail. On the restart Keegan used the rim to build a lead over Wilson, Smith, David Harrison, and Mike Linder who had moved up from his 15th starting spot. All eyes were on Todd Kane who had moved from 17th up to ninth.

Just two laps later the caution would fly again for a Brock Mayes spin in turn two. The running order now was Keegan, McCarl, Wilson, Smith, Harrison, Linder, Dale Blaney, Chad Blonde, Kane and fast qualifier Butch Schroeder.

McCarl would execute his winning move on the restart, using the slide job to move in front of Keegan exiting turn four. The caution would fly a lap later for a Huntley spin. With 32 laps yet to go it was McCarl, Keegan, Wilson, Linder, Smith, Harrison and Blonde, up from 16th.

After the restart, McCarl pulled away, but the yellow would come out again on lap 14, as Wilson slid off the high side of turn two and would coast to a stop in turn four with a flat tire. McCarl would lead on the restart with the lapped car of Caleb Griffith between he and Keegan. Linder had moved into third with Smith fourth, Blonde up to fifth, Harrison and Kane in tow.

A lap later disaster would strike in turn three as Kane ended up on his lid. Once the track went back to green, the longest run of the feature would take place, as McCarl built a lead only to have it vanish in heavy lapped traffic as Keegan and Blonde closed. The final caution would fly on lap 30 for Harrison who slid off of turn three. That gave McCarl a clear track and he pulled away for the win. Behind him though, Keegan and Blonde raced side by side for second, with the All Star Rookie of the Year candidate from Litchfield, Mich., edging Keegan at the line. Linder would come home fourth, followed by Dale Blaney, Smith, Rob Chaney, Lee Jacobs, Jimmy Stinson, and Coniam rounding out the top 10.

In B-main action, it was Huggins Cams Fast Qualifier Butch Schroeder, Paul May, and Brock Mayes leading the charge with Rookie of the Year contender Brandon Martin make a hard charge for the final transfer spot. He made some bold moves and had a spot secured until a late race restart the caused his motor to stumble, which cost him several spots.

The Haulmark Dash was won by Rookie of the Year points leader, Chad Blonde.

The All Stars will be back in action at Attica Raceway Park on Saturday April 15th. For more information on ARP, visit their web site at www.atticaracewaypark.com . For more info on the All Stars, visit www.allstarsprint.com.

All Stars Head to the 15th Annual Attica Coors Light Spring Nationals

CAMARGO, IL (4-10-06) – The All Star Circuit of Champions will head to the high banks of Attica Raceway Park for the 15th Annual Coors Light Spring Nationals this weekend, April 14th & 15th. Over the years this annual event has become a tradition in the state of Ohio signaling that the racing season is fully underway and warm weather won’t be far behind.

The All Stars will face the tough as nails Attica regulars on their own turf, but many of the All Star regulars have turned many laps at this North Central Ohio speed plant. Located in close proximity to Fremont Speedway, most of the weekly Attica regulars compete at both tracks and many of the top guns have moved up into the All Star ranks over the years.

This weekend we’ll face Byron Reed, Mike Linder, Mark Keegan, and a host of other Attica regulars as Greg Wilson, Butch Schroeder, Chad Blonde, Dale Blaney, Barry Ruble, Tim Hunter, Brandon Martin, Brock Mayes, Paul May, and James Mosher bring the All Star tradition back to Northern Ohio for the first time this season.

(Note: All Star member Danny Smith is currently taking some time away from racing due to an illness in his family. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers).

Sammy Swindell Sweeps Eldora Weekend – Night #2

ROSSBURG, OH (4-8-06) – Night #2 of the first co-sanctioned weekend with the World of Outlaws looked a lot like the preliminary night. Once again, it was a veritable “Who’s who?” in the world of sprint car racing. All the top contenders from the World of Outlaws, the National Sprint Tour, and the All Star Circuit of Champions were on hand to do battle, but it was the guy not aligned with any sanctioning body that came out on top once again.

Sammy Swindell completed the sweep on the weekend by dominating from his front row starting position. By lap three he had begun to catch the back of the field. He had the right rear up on the outside wall indicating that his years of experience and countless laps at the famed half mile showed him the fastest way around the race track. “I think a lot of guys get intimidated by running up close to the wall but I’ve got a lot of laps in here and I’m more comfortable running right up next to the wall than being away from it. I figure if something breaks then I won’t hit it very hard. I’d rather be right up next to it rather than be down a ways. Definitely if it’s fast, I’ll be the first one up there,” said Swindell.

Tim Kaeding came home 2nd and could not get through lapped traffic to make a challenge for the lead. Danny Lasoski finished 3rd and stated, “Any time that we can come out of Eldora and roll this Dennis Roth Motorsports Eagle into the trailer, it’s a pretty good weekend. To run good here, you have to run like Sammy Swindell did. You have got to be able to attack the wall and just run it, run it, run it. That’s what he did. They had the best car all weekend and they did the best job. He did the best job driving so my hat’s off to him.”

The weather was cold and windy and the Eldora Speedway track personnel did a fantastic job of keeping the show moving in order to get the fans on the road early and out of the frigid air.

The All Stars managed to correct most of the motor issues that plagued them on Friday night except for Rookie of the Year contender James Mosher who was unable to make repairs in time for qualifying. Another Rookie contender, Brandon Martin, had mechanical problems again after his heat race and was not able to start the B-main.

The fierce competition made qualifying well a top priority. Not making the inversion at the high-speed half mile when up against some of the toughest competitors in the country creates an almost insurmountable task of making the transfer out of your heat race to the A-main.

With Swindell, Lasoski, Schatz, and Kaeding already locked in to run the main event on Saturday, only the Top 4 from each heat could transfer to the A-main. Everyone else had the daunting task of trying to transfer out of the B-main for those final 4 spots. Terry McCarl, Jason Solwold, Stevie Smith, and Rob Chaney would take those positions and move on to the main event. Greg Wilson narrowly missed the transfer from his heat race and from the B-main on a super-fast track that didn’t see a whole lot of passing. Brock Mayes and Butch Schroeder transferred to the A-main, but Brock dropped out early with problems.

The All Star points have been shaken up after the first weekend of racing in Ohio since the Florida Speedweek events back in February. Jason Solwold still leads as he has run all of the All Star points races so far, but being a member of another organization will have him running elsewhere when the All Stars travel to Attica Raceway Park next weekend for the Coors Light Spring Nationals. The 2006 season points chase is still wide open.

Sammy Swindell Wins Eldora Showdown – Night #1

ROSSBURG, OH (4-7-06) – What started off as a warm and sunny day in western Ohio turned into a cold, windy, rainy night with temperatures dropping into the low 40’s and wind gusts blowing at 30 mph. Funnel clouds were reportedly seen in the Rossburg area. Eldora Speedway, however, escaped the worst of the weather that was dumping buckets of rain to the north and to the south.

During the hotlap sessions the temperature was still mild, but the threat of rain was looming and dark clouds could be seen all around the speedway. With just two cars left to go in qualifying, those skies finally opened up and the rain came down. Thankfully it was only a small amount and a half hour later we were ready to roll again.

With the track conditions now changed, fairness had to come into play and the entire field had to be re-qualified. By the time another hot lap session was run for the 46 cars in the pits, the temperature was dropping…fast. The wind was beginning to shift from the North and there was still plenty of moisture in the air. This would take its toll on many motors. The field would take just one lap this time to determine their heat starting positions, and for some this would be the end of their evening.

Rookie contender James Mosher lost a piston during his qualifying run and was forced to scratch for the evening. Rookie contender Brandon Martin also head engine trouble after his qualifying run, and though the crew was working feverishly to get it corrected he was not able to make the call to line up for his heat. Brandon was also done for the evening. Paul May changed a motor and was not able to make it out for his qualifying run, which put him on the tail of his heat. He then had some mechanical problems that forced him to drop out early. Brock Mayes, who was running up front throughout that same heat race, lost a motor with just 3 laps to go. He was solidly in a transfer spot but the motor gremlins got him as well.

The competition within the 46 car field made it challenging for everyone with the top names in sprint car racing rolling into the infamous half mile, high-banked speed plant. However, it wasn’t necessarily the competition who got the best of the All Stars…it was the changing weather and Eldora Speedway itself. With the World of Outlaws, the newly formed National Sprint Tour, and some independent racers from all around the area on hand to do battle, it was the All Stars who took the biggest hit on motors.

Greg Wilson and Butch Schroeder were able to transfer from their heats and also had qualifying times that allowed them to run the Dash. However, it was Butch who was now unable to make the call and was scored last in his Dash. The problems were fixed in time to start the A-main where he came home 12th. Greg Wilson had a good run battling side by side for several laps with former All Star champion Chad Kemenah. Greg finished 14th in the 25 lap A-main event.

Sammy Swindell, who is not officially affiliated with any series, won the event in grand fashion. The veteran star finished the race with no brakes and a stuck throttle. “I had both feet on the floor because there weren’t any brakes and the throttle wouldn’t go down or come up. It wasn’t wide open, but it was close. The problem was that you needed to work the throttle a little bit when you hit the ruts and I couldn’t do that. I knew it was getting close to the end because they gave me the five-to-go. I hoped I had a bit of a lead because I tried to ride it out. I was a sitting duck. I couldn’t go faster and I couldn’t go slower. I was just fortunate that I got into some open track where I could just run laps by myself. It was good enough. I saw somebody right there at the end, but once I got past the checkered flag I just turned the switch off. That was the only way I could stop,” said Swindell.

Through the efforts of the Eldora track crew facing adverse weather conditions, the All Stars will be back at Eldora for the second night of co-sanctioned competition with the World of Outlaws on Saturday, April 8th. The temperature will be cold, but the sun will be shining and the All Star teams will make the needed adjustments and take another crack at the half mile dirt monster we call Eldora Speedway.

Brandon Martin Joins 2006 All Star Rookie Chase

CAMARGO, IL (3-31-06) – As the 2006 All Star tour gets ready to turn up the heat on the World of Outlaws in the season’s first co-sanctioned event at Eldora Speedway on April 7th & 8th, Brandon Martin will be turning up the heat on the All Star Rookie of the Year chase. Brandon and BMI Racing (Attica, OH) made the announcement this week that they will be chasing the Rookie of the Year honors which pays the winner of the award $10,000 on top of the Season Championship Points Fund.

Brandon raced full time with the MASS series in 2005 along with Chad Blonde, who will also be competing for the All Star Rookie title in 2006. James Mosher from Albuquerque, NM will also be touring with the All Stars and chasing that title as well. “We have a great group of young, hard chargers running with us this season,” said series president Guy Webb. “These are the type of guys who are the future of the All Stars and of 410 winged sprint car racing in general.” With the exodus of 4-time All Star Champion Chad Kemenah to the World of Outlaws, the door is wide open for a new champion this season. “Five years ago nobody had heard of Chad Kemenah,” said Webb. “It’s time for the next champion to step up to the plate.”

Brandon Martin started racing 305 sprints in 2000 after spending 7 years turning laps in the go-kart ranks. He won Attica Raceway Park’s “Hard Charger” award and was Fremont Speedway’s Co-Rookie of the Year his first year in a sprint car. Brandon made his 410 debut just one year later in September of 2001 with the All Star series at Fremont Speedway. In 2002 he began racing 410's full time at Fremont and Attica. In December of 2004, Brandon spent some time in Florida on the super-fast high banks of Daytona Speedway testing in an ARCA stock car. His next big challenge will be the high banked dirt 1/2 mile monster called Eldora Speedway.

Brandon has gained lots of valuable dirt track experience around Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Indiana and has been building BMI Racing into a well oiled machine. “The rookie chase will be pretty cool,” stated Martin. “Chad Blonde is a good racer and he will be tough, however I do feel good about our chances. We just need things to go our way and to keep the car out of trouble and we'll be fine!”

Off the track Brandon has gotten a lot of attention as well. After the devastating hurricane season last year, Brandon and the entire BMI Racing team enlisted the help of the Northwest Ohio racing community to lend a hand to those who had lost everything. Martin converted his 48-foot trailer into a relief station, transporting over $50,000 worth of supplies to the nearly 8,000 residents of Pass Christian, Mississippi, which was literally destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. They chose this town because they were a small racing community as well and it just seemed to fit. One racing community helping another. Their generosity was well received.

“You can’t understand the destruction until you see it for yourself... it was utterly amazing,” said Martin after delivering relief supplies to the storm’s victims. To see the faces of the people when we opened that trailer door and they saw all the stuff.... they just couldn’t believe a bunch of race fans from Ohio would do that for them.”

Brandon will enter the 2006 All Star season with a brand new paint scheme and a new sponsor, Clean Burn, who is the manufacturer of the most reliable used-oil furnaces on the market. “I’m looking forward to the season,” said Martin. “The first couple weeks are going to be interesting and we just need some good luck!” You can find out more about Brandon and BMI Racing by visiting his web site at www.brandonmartinracing.com

The All Stars will be in action on April 7th and 8th at Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, OH and then on to Attica Raceway Park for the Coors Light Spring Nationals on April 14th and 15th. Visit the All Star web site at www.allstarsprint.com for more information on the series as well as the most up to date schedule information.


All Stars Team Up with World of Outlaws for Several Co-Sanctioned Events

CAMARGO, IL (3-17-06) – 2006 is shaping up to be a year of change in the world of sprint car racing. The shake up in the upper ranks of the sport over this past off season has prompted many track promoters to question the future of winged 410 sprint car racing. Many also questioned the ability of the All Star series to survive this split and those questions have been answered. “America’s Series” remains true to its roots in providing great racing and good family entertainment at an affordable ticket price.
The All Star series opened the 2006 season at Volusia County Speedway in February and will run approximately 50 races throughout the summer at dirt tracks around the Midwest. Danny Lasoski, Donny Schatz, and Terry McCarl have all visited victory lane with the All Stars already this season.
The All Stars, in an effort to help bring stability back to sprint car racing and increase the exposure of the teams and drivers within the series, have formed an alliance with DIRT Motorsports, SLS Promotions, and the infamous World of Outlaws to co-sanction a number of races and bring the two series together to race head to head on the same track for the first time in history.
What this means to the fans is added value for their admission price. The All Stars will be competing with the World of Outlaws in 14 events in 2006. The two series will do battle and provide the fans with an intense showdown at each one of these events. Tom Deery, president of DIRT Motorsports says, “We’re bringing together the two longest running winged 410 sprint car sanctioning bodies in the United States to run on the same track on the same night. We feel this will increase the entertainment value and experience for the fans.”
The races will be run under the World of Outlaw’s format, but points will be tracked separately for each series. This gives the teams in each series the opportunity to receive points from both the All Stars and the Outlaws if they are card carrying members of both sanctioning bodies.
The teams will receive tow money from their respective series just as they would at any other sanctioned event. Points, however, are a little bit trickier to follow. The highest finishing All Star member will receive points equal to that of winning an All Star event. The second highest finishing All Star member will receive 2nd place points, and so on. If those same drivers also carry an Outlaw membership, points will be awarded to them based on their finishing position under the Outlaw format.
“I feel this is a huge boost for our drivers,” stated All Star series owner Guy Webb. “It gives our guys an opportunity to race for more money and go head to head against some of the best drivers in the business.” He went on to say, “A number of these co-sanctioned races are going to be televised on the Outdoor Channel. That helps to increase our exposure and will hopefully attract new sponsors to our series and provide more value for the ticket buying public’s entertainment dollar.”
Guy Webb has been working with Steve Sinclair of SLS Promotions to put this deal together to increase car counts and to bring the All Star brand to new markets. "At SLS we're extremely pleased to be working with premier regional sprint groups such as the All-Stars, IRA, NOSA, and SCOA in markets where we can,” said Sinclair. “By doing so we're providing additional value to the fans and hopefully they'll realize that SLS is doing everything we can to present a good show. It's good to have positive relationships with other series and have a common goal. I see it as a significant plus.” SLS has had recent success with this program already in 2006. “In Arizona we worked with SCOA and the AMRA Midgets and I thought it worked great, plus we had the highest car count in our three years of bringing World of Outlaw events to Manzanita, plus our crowd was up. I think it's great that the World of Outlaws see this as a positive as well and are allowing us to do this. It's great for 410 racing," stated Sinclair.
Guy Webb has also put together a few deals outside of the SLS promoted shows to increase the number of times the All Stars will have this opportunity to race with the Outlaws. “What we’re trying to do is bring some stability back to the sport,” said Webb. “This split has damaged the integrity of our sport and it is our goal to work with the World of Outlaws to make sure the fans get to see a great race.”
Originally formed in 1970 by Bud Miller and then re-formed in 1980 by Bert and Brigette Emick, the All Star Circuit of Champions has been one of the most competitive dirt track sprint car racing series in the country. Over the past 27 years, 1,358 races have been run with 149 different drivers making appearances in victory lane. Guy Webb would like to continue that tradition as he leads the historical series into a new era in sprint car racing.
Many of the top names in sprint car racing have competed in the All Star series at some point in their careers. Current NASCAR drivers Dave Blaney, Jeff Gordon, and Kasey Kahne are graduates of the All Star series. Other drivers who have won All Star races in the past include Steve, Kraig, Kelly, and Mark Kinser, Frankie Kerr, Kevin Huntley, Bobby Allen, Rick Ferkel, Jeff Shepard, Doug Wolfgang, Sammy Swindell, Ricky Hood, Danny Lasoski, Stevie Smith, Fred Rahmer, Lance Dewease, Greg Hodnett, Keith Kauffman, Chad Kemenah, Kenny Jacobs, and Gary Wright.
For the 2006 season, many more of the top open wheel drivers in the country will join the competition on the All Star tour. Veterans such as Danny Smith, Dean Jacobs, and Dale Blaney will once again compete with the likes of Paul May, Greg Wilson, Brock Mayes, Barry Ruble, and Tim Hunter for the $50,000.00 All Star Season Points Championship. Also, rookie contenders Chad Blonde and James Mosher will take to the dirt along side the others to compete for the $10,000 Rookie of the Year award.
The 2006 season resumes with the first co-sanctioned events of the year at the famed Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio on April 7th & 8th. The All Stars will then head to Attica Raceway Park for the Attica Coors Lite Spring Nationals on April 14th & 15th.

Blonde and Mosher to Battle for All Star Rookie of the Year

Camargo, IL – (3-2-06) – Litchfield, Michigan and Albuquerque, New Mexico are 1500 miles apart on the map, but the All Star Circuit of Champions will bring Chad Blonde and James Mosher together on dirt tracks around the mid-west this summer to do battle as the organization’s latest Rookie of the Year contenders. The winner of the title will find themselves $10,000 richer at the conclusion of the 2006 season.
Litchfield, Michigan’s Chad Blonde, who drives the orange and blue Blonde Motorsports, Wesmar Engines, Maxim #5B, may be familiar to many of the fans in the Ohio/Indiana/Michigan region. Chad is 26 years old and has been a regular contender with the AVSS, GLOSS, and MASS series dating back to 1999. He has several wins with those groups and has run a number of races with the All Stars since 2003 whenever the series visited his area. In 2006, he has decided to make a run at the Rookie title and follow the All Star tour full time. So far in 2006 he has shown that he will be a tough competitor by making the A-main in all 3 All Star shows at Volusia Speedway against some of the best drivers in the country.
James Mosher, who drives the orange Isotopes Micro-Brewery, Mosher Motorsports, Kistler Engines, Maxim, #12m, calls Albuquerque, New Mexico home. He will venture out on the road full time this summer to compete in as many races as he can with a number of different organizations. His main focus will be the All Star schedule and the Rookie of the Year title. James was introduced to the All Star organization this year in Florida and liked the group and the level of competition. At age 29, he made the decision to follow the full tour in 2006 and looks forward to visiting new tracks around the mid-west this summer. James has raced mini-sprints for 10 years and won well over 200 main events in 12 different states, along with a few National Championships. He started racing sprint cars - both winged and non-winged 360 and 410 - in July of 2005. He then won the NMMRA rookie of the year, and also the SCOA rookie of the year.
The All Star Circuit of Champions would like to welcome both drivers to the series and we look forward to seeing them compete for the Rookie of the Year title in 2006. The Rookie chase is wide open and drivers still considering running for Rookie of the Year have until May 2006 to declare their plans to pursue the title. The Rookie points and Season Championship points can be found by visiting the All Star web site at www.allstarsprint.com.


All Stars Add PowerCom and Red River Valley to 2006 Schedule
Press Release By Bryan Autullo

Camargo, IL (2-20-06) – In a continuing effort to increase the number of events on the 2006 racing schedule, the All Star Circuit of Champions have added three more co-sanctioned dates with the World of Outlaws series. This new relationship with the Outlaws is a combined effort to provide an even better show for the fans with increased car counts and even more big name talent being provided by the All Stars. At the same time it allows the All Stars the opportunity to increase the number of higher paying events on the schedule and will help the All Star drivers to gain television exposure through the Outdoor Channel broadcasts. Never before has there been a concerted effort to bring these two series together for one ticket price to do battle head to head and provide added entertainment for the ticket buying public. These events are full points shows for All Star members and could shake things up in the point standings as the season progresses.


The first event to be added is Wednesday June 14th at The Raceway at PowerCom Park in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin. Powercom Park is a high-banked, 1/3-mile oval. Daryn Pittman established the track record of 11.275 seconds on July 10, 2001. From there, the All Stars travel West to a two day show at Red River Valley Speedway in Fargo, ND on June 16th and 17th. Red River Valley Speedway is a high-banked half-mile oval. Craig Dollansky set the single lap record of 14.786 seconds on July 4, 2002.

The All Stars have just completed their trip to Florida for the 35th Annual WinterNationals at Volusia Speedway Park. After a short break through the month of March, “America’s Series” will return to action with Jason Solwold leading the points chase.


Season points after racing concluded in Florida is as follows:


1. Jason Solwold – 167
2. Greg Wilson - 163
2. Greg Hodnett - 163
4. Lance Dewease - 162
5. Chad Blonde - 153
6. Brock Mayes - 152
7. Paul May - 151
8. Jeremy Campbell – 149
9. Danny Smith - 146
10. Spud Gustin - 142
11. Barry Ruble - 141
12. Jessica Zemken – 66


Other All Star regulars such as Dale Blaney and Dean Jacobs will join the racing action when the series returns to the mid-west in the spring. The past 8 series championships have been won by just two drivers. Kenny Jacobs (’98, ’99, ’00, & ’01) and Chad Kemenah (’02, ’03, ’04, & ’05). There will be a new champion in 2006 and the door is wide open as to who that might be.

McCarl Takes Volusia Speedway Park Finale

Volusia Speedway Park (Barberville, FL) – 2-12-06 On an unseasonably cold night at Volusia Speedway Park, the All Star Circuit of Champions WinterNationals saw 6 cars locked into the A-main for the $10,000 finale. Chad Kemenah, Jason Solwold, Danny Lasoski, Terry McCarl, Joey Saldana, and Craig Dollansky were the Top 6 in WinterNationals points after two nights of racing on February 7 and 8. The February 11th show was cancelled due to heavy rains that fell over most of Northern Florida. Danny Lasoski took the checkers in the first night of All Star action in 2006. Donny Schatz picked up his first All Star win on night #2.
On the final night of Florida action, only 29 cars were signed into the pits as some teams had to head out to make their way back home after a long week of racing. The heat races were won by Greg Hodnett, Jeff Shepard, and Shane Stewart with the Top 4 from each heat transferring to the A-main.
The All Star Haulmark Dash was won by Greg Hodnett. Second was Jason Solwold followed by Dewease, Blonde, Campbell, and Mayes.
Danny Smith dominated the B-main, but Becca Anderson gave him a challenge or two early on before getting up and over the wall on lap #3. Randy Hannagan ran Smith down after the re-start, but didn’t have enough to make a challenge for the lead. Smith led all 12 laps on his way to the B-main victory. Hannagan was second, then Busby, Zemken, Ruble, and Gustin rounded out the Top 6 who would transfer to the A-main.
Terry McCarl dominated the 30 lap A-main from start to finish to pick up the $10,000 paycheck. He took the lead on lap #1 and never looked back. Joey Saldana came from his 3rd place starting position and chased Smith down throughout the feature, but never made a challenge for the lead and had to settle for 2nd. Rounding out the Top 5 were Danny Lasoski who started 5th, Craig Dollansky who started 6th, and Daryn Pittman who started 13th and just made it past Jason Solwold on the last lap to take 5th place.
The All Stars will head back North and take a short break to prepare for the rest of the 2006 racing season which will begin in early April. More of the All Star regulars are expected to join the tour when the series comes back to the mid-west region for more exciting racing action. In four nights of racing, the All Stars have had three different winners and the first rain out of the season.
Please visit the All Star web site at www.allstarsprint.com for schedule additions and updates and important news throughout the break between now and April. Congrats to Danny Lasoski, Donny Schatz, and Terry McCarl on their 2006 All Star victories.

All Star Circuit of Champions – Wednesday 2-8-06

On night #2 of the 35th Annual WinterNationals at Volusia Speedway Park, 37 cars signed into the pits with the All Star Circuit of Champions. With Jac Haudenschild, Donny Schatz, and Brooke Tatnell joining the talent already present at the Volusia County Speedway, making the 24 car starting field would again prove to be a tall order. Greg Hodnett would get the night started by setting quick time in qualifying, and backed that up with a run to the front to win the first heat race. The other three heats were won by Bob Felmlee, Donny Schatz, and Jeff Shepard. The Al Hamilton owned #77 again showed they would be the team to beat as Hodnett took the All Star dash. For the second straight night Brock Mayes led the B feature to the checkers.
New track record holder Chad Kemenah and night one’s hard charger Joey Saldana would lead the 24 car starting field to the green. The duo would battle side by side for the first five laps with Kemenah running the bottom line and Saldana running the same top groove that proved so effective the night before. A lap 6 spin by Lance Dewease would bring Donny Schatz into the fold. When the green fell for the restart, Schatz was too much for Saldana to hold off. A caution for Daryn Pittman’s motor expiring on a lap 11 would set up an exciting duel to the finish between early race leader Kemenah and the hard charging Schatz. With the two encountering lapped traffic, Kemenah was forced to move the #15K off the bottom groove where he had been so fast, and as Schatz searched the track for a faster line the gap between them quickly closed. As the laps wound down Schatz was able to work the higher line around Kemenah and hang on for his first career All Star Circuit of Champions victory.

All Star Circuit of Champions – Tuesday 2-7-06

It was an unseasonably cold evening in Volusia County, but the track was extremely fast. In qualifying, four time ASCoC champion Chad Kemenah lowered the Volusia County Speedway track record previously held by Danny Lasoski. Heat races were won by Bob Felmlee, Danny Smith, Joey Saldana, and Becca Anderson. The All Star dash was won by Greg Wilson, who held off a late charge by Greg Hodnett at the line. Brock Mayes picked up the B feature victory.
In the A-main, Greg Hodnett and Danny Lasoski led the 24 car starting field to the green. An early race duel between the two was negated when Hodnett’s front wing supports gave way less the half way through the 25 lap feature. From there Lasoski pulled away from the rest of the field until a hard charging Craig Dollansky was able to track down “The Dude” as the leaders reached lap traffic. A late race caution for Shane Stewart put Dollansky nose to tail with Lasoski in a 2 lap shoot-out for the checkers. Using all his experience Lasoski got a great restart at the green, which proved to be too much for “The Crowd Pleaser” to overcome. Doing some crowd pleasing of his own, Joey Saldana completed an amazing run from the 13th starting spot with a turn 4 pass of Lance Dewease to finish 3rd. Rounding out the top 5 was Jason Solwold.

Qualifying:  1. 15K-Chad Kemenah, 13.164 (NTR); 2.

All Stars Announce 2006 Schedule

CAMARGO, IL – After much anticipation, the All Star Circuit of Champions sprint car series has released the schedule for the 2006 racing season. Many exciting events will be introduced as a part of the 2006 campaign. The goal for 2006 has been to maintain stability in the All Star series and in 410 sprint car racing in general. For the past 3 decades, there have two premier touring 410 sprint car series. The addition of a third touring series in 2006 has not affected the operations of the All Stars in any way. In fact, the All Stars will have more $10,000 to win races than ever before and will once again pay a points fund of nearly $175,000 with an additional $60,000 in contingency awards. Only one 410 sprint car organization pays more in cash and prizes than the All Stars.

Newly formed relationships with the XPLEX Extreme Competition Park and the Westwood Development Group have revitalized the All Stars organization and will bring new concepts in racing entertainment into the 2006 season and beyond. Events are being planned to give the ticket buying fans more than just a race. The All Stars plan to bring entertainment value to the forefront with special events and promotional exhibitions for one ticket price. Other exciting events and promotions are being planned that will be implemented into the racing program itself that will make things more interesting for fans and drivers alike.

With sales pending on the purchase of certain facilities currently being pursued by this new group, dates at those facilities will not be announced until the real estate transactions have closed. There are also a handful of other dates that have been verbally committed to, but contracts have not yet been signed. These will be announced at a later date. The “Thunder Through The Plains” portion of the schedule will also be announced at a later date when all contracts have been signed and deposits delivered.

Early June will make for an interesting bit of travel when the All Stars visit Wayne County Speedway on June 1, Williams Grove on June 2, Lincoln Speedway on June 3 and then make a 648 mile trek to Terre Haute Action Track on June 4. The last leg of this weekend tour will be known as the “All Star Cannonball Run”. All participating teams will receive a case of Red Bull at the end of the Lincoln Speedway A-main event. At that time, the race is on to Terre Haute. The first team to arrive at the Terre Haute Action Track will receive $300 bonus money in addition to their regular tow money.

Ohio Speedweek will once again be the crown jewel in the All Star schedule for 2006. The week will kick off at K-C Raceway this year and end at Eldora, where the Speedweek Champion will be crowned and the Ohio Speedweek $10,000 points fund will be distributed. We would like to welcome Wayne County Speedway back as part of the Ohio Speedweek tradition in 2006.

The All Stars will also co-sanction several races in 2006 with the World of Outlaws at many of the "SLS Promotions" events. Visit www.slspromotions.com for more information. Series owner Guy Webb says, “This is a great opportunity for our drivers to gain experience and exposure at some of the Outdoor Channel televised events and to have the opportunity to race for more prize money. There’s a new sheriff in town,” he continued, “and I have deputized my drivers to go after the Outlaws and bring them to justice.”

The teams who will be competing with the All Stars in 2006 include Danny Smith, Dale Blaney, Paul May, Tim Hunter, Brock Mayes, Greg Wilson, Cody Geldart, Barry Ruble, Dean Jacobs, Jeff Shepard, Chad Blonde, Andrew Palker. As in every other year, other regional stars will also participate in many of the All Star races, such as Byron Reed, Kelly Kinser, Tim Montgomery, Craig Mintz, Jason Dukes, Fred Rahmer, Lance Dewease, Greg Hodnett, and a host of others who will come out and race when the All Stars are in their area. Its part of the mystery that makes the All Stars great. You never know who might show up on any given night. Several other drivers have been in contact with the series requesting membership information and those announcements will be made at a later date when we recieve firm committments from those teams that they plan to run the bulk of our schedule. The 2006 schedule, though still somewhat of a work in progress, is as follows as of today's date:

All Stars Enter 2006 With a New Voice
Press Release by Bryan Autullo

CAMARGO, IL – The All Star Circuit of Champions are viewing 2006 as “a season of change.” Not only will the series have some new fan-friendly rules for the upcoming season as they visit some new tracks, they will also have a new “Voice of the All Stars”.
The All Stars would like to welcome as their new announcer, long time sprint car media member, Dana Blair, of Wooster, Ohio. Dana comes to the series with nine years experience as an on track and booth announcer. In addition to his broadcast background, he is also a member of the print and internet media with his long standing coverage of sprint cars and the All Star series. Blair has also hosted his own racing radio show and has been involved in many other aspects of the sport.
Long time series announcer, Rob Klepper, has left to pursue a television broadcast opportunity with another organization. The All Stars would like to thank Rob for his efforts and wish him the best in his new endeavor.
In addition to broadcasting, Blair will be handling marketing and sales for the internet broadcast as well as the series print publication programs. “I’m looking forward to working with the All Stars again and getting back into the announcing part of the business,” says Blair, “as I really enjoyed that part of it in years past.”
The All Stars will once again be broadcasting each race live via the internet. Tune into www.GoLiveSports.com each race night. A link to the live broadcast can be found on the All Star web site. “Look forward to a lot more things happening during the broadcasts this year,” says Blair. “We are looking to fill a lot of the dead air time between races and during support division races.” Live and taped interviews, live guests, and live e-mail question and answer sessions are just some of the things planned for the new broadcast. “We will be acquainting the fans with the drivers to create a more personal feel. We want to get the fans more involved in knowing who our drivers are.”
The All Stars kick off the 2006 season at Volusia Speedway in Barberville (Daytona), FL on February 7th. Please visit the All Star web site at www.allstarsprint.com for more information. For information on advertising with the All Star series for special events or as a series sponsor, please contact Duane Hancock at 419-553-6746 or 1duane@bright.net.


All Stars Announce 2006 Rule Changes and Official Hotel

CAMARGO, IL – In preparation for the 2006 racing season, All Star Competition Director, Randy Fink, has announced several rule changes that will not only help to improve the racing program, but are also intended to promote a more fan-friendly event.
Some of the minor rule changes are related to body panels, nose wing positions, and ignition box location. The changes can be found on the All Star web site at www.allstarsprint.com or in the 2006 printed rule books, which will be available at the first race at Volusia. Two of the biggest changes are in regards to provisional starting positions and red flag fuel stops.
For the 2006 season, there will be no "provisional" or "promoters' option" A-Main starting positions. The only exception to this revision is if a specific, mutually acceptable agreement exists between the promoter and All Star management. Should such an agreement exist, the specific formula and details must be announced at the driver's meeting. After the conclusion of the driver's meeting, no addition or changes can be made. If an All-Star member is added to the field, the team will race for the designated prize money only, and no All Star A-Main points will be awarded.
Also, the issue of red flag fuel stops has been addressed. There will be NO open red flag fuel stops. You must be prepared to complete the designated number of laps by using a larger fuel cell if necessary. No adjustments will be made to the car during the course of the race. If a driver goes to the work area for any reason during a red or caution period, they will rejoin the field at the tail. “Stopping the race to add fuel just compromises the integrity of the race,” says Fink. “The fans come out to see an exciting race from start to finish. We don’t want to stop the action for fuel, only to have what amounts to a 5 or 6 lap dash to the finish.” Most cars are equipped with a smaller fuel cell to decrease weight, but with the implementation of the weight rule a few years ago, the smaller fuel cell is no longer necessary. “These guys better think about investing in a 33 gallon fuel cell this year to run with our series,” Fink Stated.
Changes to the Rookie of the Year points system and the Haulmark Dash have also been made for the upcoming season in an effort to add excitement to the racing program.
The Rookie of the Year points were previously awarded as (1) point to the highest finishing rookie who transferred to the A-main. For 2006, there will be (1) “show up” point awarded for all rookie drivers who make the effort to compete in any given event. Points will then be awarded for the A-main based on how many rookie drivers transferred to the main event. If three rookie drivers compete in the A-main, points will be awarded (3), (2), (1) in the order that they finished.
The Haulmark Dash has taken on a slightly different form as well. Points for the Dash will be awarded the same as in years past and will count toward the Series Championship points. However, the points will also be kept separately and will be tallied throughout the season for a Haulmark Dash points fund to be paid to the Top 6 drivers at the end of the season.
The All Stars have once again designated Best Western, the World's Largest Hotel Chain, as the official hotel for the series. This program offers everyone discounted room rates at most Best Western’s throughout the United States. Race teams and fans are able to use the special All Star MVP number to save up to 20% at Best Western Hotels worldwide. The information can be found on the All Star web site by clicking on the “Official ASCoC Hotel” button on the Fan Menu. If you cannot access the All Star web site, simply call the special Best Western MVP toll-free number 800-441-1114 and mention the ALL STAR SPRINT CLUB MVP number 00158060 to start saving and stay where the All Stars stay.

Press Release By Bryan Autullo

CAMARGO, IL – The All Star Circuit of Champions sprint cars will invade Florida in February with four events at Volusia Speedway Park in Barberville (Daytona), FL. This will be the 35th Annual WinterNationals, an event that always kicks off the new season in the Sunshine State while the snow is still falling in other areas of the U.S.

The All Star portion of the WinterNationals at Volusia Speedway Park will run on Tuesday February 7, Wednesday February 8, Saturday February 11, and Sunday February 12. The World of Outlaws series will also be racing at Volusia on Thursday February 9 and Friday February 10. Also on the racing card will be the USCS 360 sprints on February 7th and the UMP open-wheel modified series on February 7th through February 12th.

A full program of time trials, heat races, consolation, and feature events will be held each night. Each of the first three All Star events pay $5,000 to win and the final night will pay $10,000 to the feature winner. For information regarding schedule, tickets, and directions for Volusia Speedway Park, visit their web site at www.volusiaspeedwaypark.com . Call 386-985-4402 for reserved tickets.

Car owners and drivers participating in All Star Circuit of Champions sprint car events who wish to earn points toward the 2006 Series Championship must purchase an All Star membership. Teams are encouraged to purchase memberships now and pick up their credentials at the season opener at Volusia on February 7th.

Membership is not required to participate in All Star sprint car races, but is necessary to earn points and be eligible for contingency prize awards. A driver must compete in at least 70% of the scheduled season events to be eligible for the series points fund. Drivers and car owners can find the 2006 membership forms on the All Star website www.allstarsprint.com. The supplemental MCNA insurance information is also available for download on the web site.

The All Stars enter the 2006 season with a new attitude on an age old philosophy – you must race to get paid. The All Star series is not interested in driver contracts, signing bonuses, or show-up money. The All Stars are the weekend warriors with day jobs who cannot travel cross-country full time, yet have the talent and the drive to compete with the best of the best on any given night. This is what has made this “America’s Series”. The names may change, but the competition still remains fierce year after year.

The All Stars welcome all drivers, regardless of affiliation, to show up and compete for the prize money. We welcome all fans to come out and see some of the best 410 sprint car racing in the land. There is one thing that has rung true since the series was formed – you never know who is going to win an All Star race. The 2006 season will be no different.
