Speedway 9/19/2015 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
OHIO- In the sprint car main, Vandalia, Ohio's Jimmy Stinson claimed
the win in the Ohio Valley Sprint Car Association A-main over runner-up
Crabtree. Stinson won the battle in the Eddie Slone 4x, but Crabtree won the
season-long war. Andy Bond, Coolville, Ohio, subbing for Mark Lunning claimed
an impressive win in the Precision Grading Modifieds, while Crace won the
15-lap Sport Mod main over runner-up Cottrill.
In the Pine Tree-Towing and Recovery Sprint Car main, Ronnie Blair burst out of
the gate to lead the first eleven laps with Jimmy Stinson, Todd Kane, Kory
Crabtree, and Ryan Broughton in tow.
All Crabtree had to do was finish 15 spots ahead of Broughton to claim the
crown. When all was said and done, both drivers did what they had to do--land
great finishes. Crabtree's 3rd place finish however, propelled him to the
overall championship despite what would prove a great fourth place run by
Stinson dove low on the twelfth circuit past a rim-riding Blair. Once on the
point no one came close until the finish. Stinson had built up a comfortable
lead, mainly as a result of an on-going side-by-side battle between Crabtree
The last five laps proved to be go-time for Crabtree as he finally shook Blair
and charged toward Stinson, who was bogged down in lapped traffic. Perhaps
saving the day for Stinson was a wild flip by Beau Stewart at the flagstand as
leaders Stinson and Crabtree came to the checkered. Stewart was o.k., but a
green-checkered restart saw Stinson sail to victory in a plateau of clean air.
Rounding out the top ten were Jimmy Stinson, Ronnie Blair, Kory Crabtree, Ryan
Broughton, Todd Kane, Ryan Myers, Nathan Skaggs, Brian Nuckles, Lance Webb, and
"I had a great car tonight," said Stinson. "I give all the
credit to these guys (crew/owners). The car would go anywhere I wanted. In
closing I just want to dedicate this win to my two sons. They have been through
a lot and this was for them."

Atomic Speedway Results FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
OHIO- Hartford, Ohio's Dale Blaney captured the $2,500 410 Sprint Car
paycheck and a berth in the Seneca Energy Freedom 40 on October 3 with what was
his seventh consecutive win on the high banks of Atomic Speedway during Ohio
Valley Veneer Night festivities. Cole Duncan was the runner-up and also secured
a starting berth in the Freedom 40.
Danny Smith bolted to the front as a result of his front row start on the pole.
Smith led several circuits before swapping positions with eventual winner
Blaney. Blaney went on a ten lap Blitzkrieg and was checking out when lapped
traffic slowed him momentarily, then it was back to full speed ahead.
Smith had a solid second but as traffic
stonewalled the outstanding driver's charge to the front, Jac "the Wild
Child" Haudenschild and young Cale Thomas closed in. Beau Stewart, off a
second place finish last weekend, looped his mount in front of the pack.
Drivers fought to take evasive action with Haudenschild and Thomas shuffling
sharply to the high-side where Thomas rode one of Haudenschild's wheels and
spiraled end-for-end off the turn two banking.
The contact ended great runs for both drivers, but
bumped Duncan up to third. As the race approached the five-lap marker, Duncan
passed Smith, while Ryan Broughton won a race-long battle with Capp Henry for
Rounding out the top ten were Nathan Skaggs, Caleb
Armstrong, Brandon Wimmer, Bryan Nuckles, and Caleb Griffith aboard Randy
Fink's #41. Griffith's usual mount suffered engine woes in hot laps and Fink
offered up his ride for the evening.
"I can't explain it," said Blaney.
"We just love this place and have had the right set-up over the last
several runs here. We drew the last pill, qualified last out of the gate and
put ourselves behind the 8-ball, but we worked through it. I just really enjoy
Usually tabbed as the low rider, Blaney explained
his rim-riding victory run. "Sometimes you have to run up high to win
here. You do what you have to do. It's fast up there (next to the wall) and
actually it's a lot of fun. I just want to thank my crew, my sponsors, George
Fisher, and everyone that works so hard to get us here."
