Haulmark All Star Sprint Results – Volusia Speedway
Park– Wed. 2/9/05
BARBERVILLE, FL – Fred Rahmer and Jeff Shepard both pulled
victory lane Wednesday night at Volusia Speedway Park after the Haulmark All
Star sprint car 25 lap A main feature. Each driver thought they won race
number two of the All Star season after a side-by-side finish. It was so
that All Star officials had to review a video of the finish, finally
declaring Rahmer the winner by an eyelash over Shepard.
Rahmer led all 12-1/2 miles in the Harz Racing No. 88 Don Ott
powered J&J and had a three car length lead over Shepard’s Apple Motorsports
with two laps to go, but Shepard made a valiant dive under the leader on the
last lap for a side-by-side photo finish.
With Tuesday’s winner Terry McCarl starting from the pole and
alongside, Rahmer rocketed into the lead, entering lapped traffic by
lap seven with McCarl, Shepard, sixth starting Craig Dollansky and Chad
Kemenah trailing. As Rahmer built his lead blitzing by lapped cars, Shepard
past McCarl for a lap but the Iowa driver returned the favor on lap 10.
Shepard got second for good a circuit later, with McCarl, Kemenah and
fighting tooth and nail for third.
Rahmer saw a half straightaway lead erased on lap 18 when Kevin
Swindell spun after making contact with the machine of Mark Smith. Dean
suffered a flat tire on the restart, sending cars scrambling to get
around him but luckily a big crash was avoided. For the second restart it
Rahmer followed by Shepard, Dollansky, Kemenah, Lance Dewease, Jac
Haudenschild, Randy Hannagan and Jason Sides. Dollansky got past McCarl
in the high groove to take over third when the green flew again as Rahmer
took off to another nice lead over Shepard.
With Rahmer using the low groove and Shepard Jetting by on the high
side, it looked like Rahmer had everything under control. Coming off the
final turn, Rahmer slid high and Shepard went low and it was too close to
call at the checkers.
Dollansky ended up third, followed by McCarl, Kemenah, Dewease and
Haudenschild. Sides, 15th starter Shane Stewart and Greg Hodnett
completed the top ten finishers.
The Crown Battery heat fell to Sammy Swindell, the B&B Products
went to Cameron Dodson, the Engler Machine and Tool heat was won by Jason
Solwold and the TP Wings heat fell to Jason Johnson. Mike Lutz won the
Outerwears Pre-filters C Main and the University of Northwestern Ohio B Main
to Jeremy Campbell. Mark Smith was the Huggins Cams Fast Time qualifier.
