BARBERVILLE, FL – Jason Solwold, a driver out of the state of
Washington who competes regularly at the Knoxville Raceway, shocked the crowd
Saturday night at Volusia Speedway Park, leading the Haulmark All Star sprint
car 30 lap A main feature wire to wire. Solwold’s first career All Star win in
the Lon Carnahan owned Citywide Insulation R19 Schnee Chassis was worth
$10,000. Solwold easily drove away from Fred Rahmer following a pair of restarts
enroute to an impressive win.

Mark Smith started from the pole with Solwold alongside and Danny
Smith and Rahmer made up row two. Chad Kemenah and Jeff Shepard started from
row three when the green flag fell. After Solwold grabbed the early lead
action was halted on lap two when Kevin Swindell, Jason Johnson, Jeremy
Campbell and Trevor Lewis tangled in turns three and four with Lewis vaulting
over the guardrail. No one was injured in the crash but all four were
eliminated from the race.

Solwold led Rahmer, D. Smith and M. Smith on the restart and by the
one-third mark of the race Solwold had a margin of four lapped cars
over second place Rahmer’s Harz Racing No. 88h. D. Smith, M. Smith and Lance
Dewease were next. As Solwold continued to stretch his lead working the
bottom of the track, he had to deal with lapped traffic which never
hindered his efforts. Rahmer was never able to close on the leader as he had to
pick his way through the lapped traffic. Sammy Swindell moved into the top
ten on lap 12 after starting 18th and Kemenah moved back into the top five at
this point around M. Smith. Laps ticked off at a fast and furious pace and
lap 20 saw fourth place Dewease drop out of action, handing that spot to
Another caution flew on lap 21 when 10th place runner Jac
Haudenschild got sideways in turn four and almost spun, causing the flagman to
display his yellow flag. The lineup was now Solwold, a pair of lapped cars,
then Rahmer, D. Smith, Kemenah, M. Smith, Shepard, S. Swindell, Greg Hodnett
and Dean Jacobs. Solwold got a great restart to jump back out to another
huge lead.

With seven laps to go, Jacobs got by Hodnett and S. Swindell for
seventh as the battle for third heated up between D. Smith and Kemenah. Kemenah
took the spot for good on lap 24 and the leaders ran that way for the rest
of the 15 mile contest as Solwold went virtually unchallenged in the machine
wrenched by Lenard McCarl.

At the finish it was Solwold, Rahmer, Kemenah, D. Smith and M. Smith
in the top five. Next were Shepard, 18th starter Sammy Swindell who earned
the Fisher Performance Hard Charger award, Dean Jacobs, Greg Hodnett and
Dale Blaney.
