Waverly, Ohio (June 24th, 2015) – For the second night in a row and the third time this week, Dale Blaney visits UNOH All Star Circuit of Champions victory lane during the 33rd Annual Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Cometic Gasket. Blaney, who now has six UNOH All Star victories in 2015, earned his second consecutive Ohio Sprint Speedweek victory on Wednesday evening, June 24th at the Atomic Speedway in Waverly, Ohio; during round six of the 2015 edition of Ohio Sprint Speedweek. The Hartford, Ohio native held off Cole Duncan and recent Eldora Speedway winner Greg Wilson for the $5,000 top prize. ‘The Lowrider,’ who has Speedweek victories this week at Attica Raceway Park, Sharon Speedway and Atomic Speedway, now has 121 career UNOH All Star main event victories as he chases Speedweek title number six.

“My guys gave me a great car tonight” said Dale Blaney, “Things were going pretty good but I could start to feel the rubber right through the middle of the track there towards the end…we were able to hang on and make it work…feels good to get another one…I knew Cole (Duncan) was going to be good tonight after he came from twelfth to sixth in the dash…we’re just glad to be up here.”

 

Dale Blaney, pilot of the familiar GoMuddy.com, Big Game Treestands, CH Motorsports, no. 1, earned his third Ohio Sprint Speedweek win from an outside front row starting position; surviving one caution on the initial start to help secure his place in victory lane. Red flag conditions would take over the speedway during the initial main event start.Third starting Danny Holtgraver, pole sitter Cody Darrah and fourth starting Dave Blaney were all involved in the red flag incident.

 

The 30-lap main event would go uninterrupted after the complete restart. Dale Blaney would set the tone for the entire distance; racing nearly unchallenged through traffic while utilizing the late race rubber- down surface. Cole Duncan would make an attempt to take over the top spot with less than five laps remaining, but would be denied.

 

“Feels good to finish second” said Cole Duncan, “I just wish we were one more position ahead…we are in a good spot heading into tomorrow at Fremont.”

 

Duncan would finish second after starting sixth, followed by recent Ohio Sprint Speedweek winner at Eldora Speedway, Greg Wilson, who rallied from twelfth to finish third on Wednesday evening.

 

“We are having a lot of fun right now” said Greg Wilson, “Things have been going our way lately so hopefully we can keep this up.”

 

With three victories heading into round seven of nine on Thursday evening at Fremont Speedway, Dale Blaney will have exactly three opportunities to secure two more victories for the $25,000 bonus presented by Cometic Gasket. Any driver who can win five of the nine scheduled Speedweek events will be awarded the five-digit bonus.

 

There were 48 UNOH All Star Circuit of Champions sprint cars signed in on Wednesday evening at Atomic Speedway. The 48 UNOH All Stars were split into five groups of qualifying time trials with each driver qualifying against those in their respective heat race. Josh Baughman, Dave Blaney, James McFadden, Kenny Jacobs, and Sheldon Haudenschild each earned fast time honors during their group qualifying efforts. Josh Baughman earned the fastest time of the night overall; recording an official time of 12.323 seconds around the Atomic Speedway bullring.

 

Five heat races were contested with the top-four finishers qualifying for the 30-lap, $5,000-to-win main event. D.J. Foos, Lee Jacobs, Travis Philo, Jamie Veal, and Chad Kemenah each earned victories during their respective heat races.

The six-lap dash was captured by Cody Darrah.
