East Bay Winternational Sprint Cars




TAMPA, FL…..2/2/06…..”I love East Bay,” said happy team owner Lori McCarl in victory lane standing beside her winning husband Terry who had just claimed victory in the opening night for 410 Sprint cars worth $3000 Thursday night as East Bay Raceway Park.


“It took me all of hot laps to get used to having my wing back on top again,” joked McCarl who just finished three wingless shows here.  (More than he had ever run in his life.)  He was quick to point out that his sponsors, Big Game Tree Stands,, Bosma Poultry and, should get all the credit for his win over the 50 cars signed in tonight.  His winning Eagle chassis was powered by a Wesmar engine and rode on Hoosier tires.


After starting third in the 26 car field, McCarl held that spot behind front row starters, Greg Wilson and Bob Felmlee until they got into lapped traffic on lap six.   McCarl and Gary Wright both used the back-markers to slip past Felmlee dropping him to fourth.


With Wilson’s Verl Warnimont owned, Kistler powered Eagle still showing the way on lap nine, Freddie Rahmer and Danny Smith tangled in turn two bringing out the first yellow.  Fast-timer Danny Lasoski, who failed to qualify through his heat, was forced to start seventh in the A-Main after winning the B-Main came up to fourth on the restart line up behind Wilson, McCarl and Wright.


The next seven laps under green let Wilson build a six car-length lead at the half-way mark, but the front four tightened back up as lapped cars entered the picture again by lap 15 and McCarl made his winning move on the inside in turn two and led the 16th lap as Lasoski moved into third.


A red flag came out after that lap for Liberal, Kansas driver Jason Martin who climbed the wheel of another car in turn three and took a hard tumble.  As the green replaced the red, McCarl had his hands full holding off Wilson, Lasoski and Wright.  On lap 23 Lasoski got by Wilson to take second place as Wilson managed to hold off Wright and Felmlee, all top five finishers.


Lasoski’s charge from seventh to second put a smile on the faces of his new team, Paul Silva, Davey Whitworth and Stephen Tiner.   It was the first time out for the Dennis and Teresa Roth owned “new” Eagle chassis design sporting special linkage and geometry,  powered by a reconfigured Kistler engine.


A Sprint car show officially opened East Bay 30 years ago with the Winternationals and tonight’s race was a great tribute to that tradition as the top four cars ran the last 10 laps of the 25 lap feature in tight formation.  Finishing in the top ten it was Danny Smith, Lance Dewease, Craig Dollansky, Jason Sides and Shane Stewart.


Heats went to Brock Mayes, Ed Lynch, Jr., Greg Hodnett and Jason Solwold.  The C-Main was won by Mark Broughman, and the B-Main winner was Lasoski.  The Gulf Coast Produce Strawberry Dash went to Steve King.
