weekend of All Star racing at Fremont
OH Shane Stewart recorded his first career All Star
win Friday night at Fremont Speedway in the 30-lap feature.
It was a
wire-to-wire victory for the Oklahoma driver, who wheeled
Eagle chassis on Hoosier Tires across the line ahead of
Stewart became the 22nd different All Star winner this season
in 42 races.
We had a really good car tonight, Stewart recalled.
Its my first All
Star win. Weve been close so many times. It feels
really good to win here
at Fremont, this place had a lot of history. I knew Kenny
coming and if I could get through one and two that was going
to be the key
because in three and four I was really good.
On the pole for the start was Stewart with Jason Johnson
followed by Byron Reed, Jeff Shepard, Chad Kemenah and Paul
led the first three laps before a pair of cautions slowed
the action. He was
ahead of Johnson and Reed for the restarts and jumped out
into the lead
again as Reed took second from Johnson, but Johnson returned
the favor a lap
later. Stewart began pulling away from Johnson, and was
in heavy lapped
traffic by the tenth circuit.
Shepard passed Reed for third on lap 11, and then disaster
struck Reed a
lap later when he was trying to lap Dustin Daggett and Daggett
slightly in turn three. Reed collided with the Michigan
driver and dumped
his machine on its side, bringing out a red. Reed was able
to repair his car
and return to the tail of the field for the restart. Stewart
again led over
Johnson, Shepard, Jacobs, McMahan and Danny Smith. Eighth
began challenging Shepard for third and took over that spot
with a low
groove move on lap 20. As Stewart pushed out to almost a
lead, lap 21 became a disaster for runner-up Johnson as
he hit the cushion
at the wrong angle in turn three in Al Harrisons No.

into Fremonts foam-block covered concrete wall. Johnson
was uninjured in
This put Jacobs second on the restart with Shepard in third,
Kemenah, McMahan and Greg Wilson who had started 13th. McMahan
Kemenah for fourth on lap 23 and Stewart saw a three second
again on lap 27 as a brakeless Bobby Clark stopped on the
track to bring out
This set up a three lap dash to the finish, but Stewart
was too strong
and led to the end. Shepard took second on lap 29, but Jacobs

second at the
I wasnt going to beat Shane, runnerup
Jacobs said about the restart
with three laps to go. I was about as good as anybody
in one and two. We
had the wing back so far to try and run the top in three
and four. I guess
we were just second best tonight.
After Shepard it was McMahan in fourth and All Star points
fifth. Smith was sixth ahead of Kelly Kinser (up from 16th),
Rob Chaney and Phil Gressman.
Dale Blaney was scheduled to start 14th in the A Main, but
his engine was
missing when he pushed off for the main. He went to the
pits for repairs and
had to start last, and dropped out early.
The Crown Battery heat fell to Bobby Clark, the B&B
Products heat went to
Kemenah, the Engler Machine and Tool heat was won by Shepard
and the TP
