RON JENKINS MEMORIAL RACE
In the Stocks/Trucks, 57 cars/trucks filled the pit area, and through heat races and B Mains, were whittled down to 22 for the 21 lap A Main. #1M Jeff Matheny would lead the opening 2 laps before a body panel would come off his car and cause the first caution and send him to the tail. On the restart No. 34 Gregg DeTray would assume the lead, with Kyle Moore having already charged from his 10th tarting spot all the way up to 3rd. DeTray would hold the top spot until lap 8 when No. 17x Dustin Keegan, No. 99 Andy King, and No. 14 Ronnie Bloomfield would tangle in turns 3 and four, and Detray would spin trying to avoid the melee, amking contact and coming to a stop briefly enough to be charged as part of the caution and sent to the tail. With that, Moore would assume the lead and cruise to a near straightaway lead and win over No. 21D Bob Daugherty. No. 7B Shawn Valenti would finish 3rd, No. 8KB Kent Brewer 4th, and No. 7B Jeff Babcock would complete the top 5 after battling the last 3rd of the race with Brewer.
HAUDENSCHILD WINS ALL STAR FEATURE, MOORE SETS TRACK RECORD AND WINS BIG IN STOCKS AT MILLSTREAM
August 28, 2016
Millstream Speedway was the setting for a tremendous night of racing on Sunday August 28th, as Tony Stewart's Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions invaded the Findlay Ohio half-mile, and the friends and family of Ron Jenkins presented the 2nd Annual Stock/Truck race honoring the former Millstream track champion. No. 93 Sheldon Haudenschild would best the field in the All Stars, with No. 11A Kyle Moore picking up the $1521 winner's share in the Jenkins Memorial feature
No. 1 Dale Blaney would set a New Track Record in time trials for the All Stars with a 13.746 second lap, while Kyle Moore would start his night off with a bang, setting a new track record for the Stocks/Trucks with a lap time of 20.074 seconds
Mother Nature threw a monkey wrench in the opening of the nights activities with a light shower, but with the help of push truck drivers and stock car and truck racers, the track was ironed out in record time and ready to go for racing.
In feature action, Haudenschild would jump out to the early lead and hold off Alvada, Ohio's Chad Kemenah in the Rob Hunter No. 10H, despite several cautions and a red flag for fuel with 5 laps remaining. Dale Blaney would finish 3rd, with No. 49 Tim Shaffer in 4th, and No. 5T Travis Philo completing the top 5. Full press release for the All Stars will be available at allstarsprint.com.
