All Star Circuit of
Champions Sprint Cars
he predicted Huset's All Star win
BRANDON, S.D. (By Brian
Liskai) 7-30-10 San Jose, Californias Tim
Kaeding predicted it would happen. The previous night a
third place run gave him the confidence a win was just
around the corner. It came Friday, July 30 at
Husets Speedway during the first of three straight
nights of racing at the fast 3/8th-mile with the
OReilly Auto Parts All Star Circuit of
Champions Thunder Through the Plains.
Kaeding took the lead
from Husets regular Gregg Bakker on lap #2 and then
held off several challenges from young All Star regular
David The Connecticut Kid Gravel and fellow
Californian Tyler Walker to nab his second career All
to Gregg (Bakker) there and I knew hes quick here
all the time so I knew I just had to get out front. This
deal was like it was here last weekend
kind of right
up around the top. We took the back row challenge,
stepped on it flipped over and still run fourth. I have
to thank my crew guys they bust their tails all night.
This one goes out to Bonz (Dean Bonzi Bruns,
crew chief). He lives up here
this is his home
track, said Kaeding beside his Dennis and Theresa
Roth owned #83jr with backing from HR Cattle.
The 30-lap feature
produced close racing which brought out several race
stoppages. Local Gregg Bakker led the field to the green
with Kaeding and Walker in tow. Kaeding blasted around
the outside into the lead on lap 2, bringing fifth place
starter and Ohio Sprint Speedweek champion David Gravel
along into second. The caution would fly on lap 6 when
All Star point leader Tim Shaffer and Johnn Cressman to
tangled up. Shaffers CH Motorsports car was towed
to the pits, which ended a great string of seven straight
top three finishes for Shaffer, the defending All Star
On the restart Kaeding
and Gravel put on a great battle for the lead as they
raced into lapped traffic on lap 10. Kaeding showed his
experience in traffic while young Gravel drove like a pro
to stay close. The caution would fly on lap 13 when
former track champion Terry McCarl stopped on the high
side of turn 3. The red was soon brought out as something
happened on the machine, causing an injury to McCarl who
was taken to an area hospital to be checked out.
On the restart Kaeding
and Gravel resumed their fight with Gravel actually
nosing ahead of Kaeding for a brief moment. Kaeding would
drive back by as Walker would join the battle in his Keen
Motorsports machine. On lap 16 the action would grind to
a halt as Cressman got upside down. On the restart it was
Kaeding, Gravel, Walker and local star Mark Dobmeier. The
leaders ran nose to tail as they hit lapped traffic on
lap 23. As Kaeding picked his way through the traffic,
Gravel would close, but just could not get around Kaeding
as he took the checkered. Gravel, Walker, Dobmeier and
local driver Scott Winters would round out the top five.
God this feels
I can tell you that. We learned a lot racing
here last week. We changed a lot of things. We basically
started where we ended here last week and kind of worked
from there and tightened her up all night. Bonzi knows
what hes doing. I just had to go in there and not
hit the fence and not get taken out by lapped traffic. I
have to thank all the fans for coming out
going to be a great three days I can tell you that,
said Kaeding, possibly predicting more wins.
A second place run for
Gravel continues his hot streak of late as he sits third
in the All Star point standings.
It was a
the tracks really fast and lapped cars
were interesting, said Gravel beside his DDR
Motorsports, P&M Transportation backed #89G.
The only groove was right around the outside. I
tried like hell on every restart to get by Tim. I was a
little bit too nice
I should have given him a dirty
slide job. I thought we were a little better on long
green flag runs and we finally got passed all the lapped
cars and the checkered came out. We were coming but
second place is good.
need to see those yellows and reds because this track was
fast and it was hard to pass in open traffic. Tim did a
good job and so did David. I thought we had a shot at
them there until that red came out. We got by David and
were right on Tims butt and I thought alright
here we go
lets get racing. But then it
was yellow after yellow after yellow and it just kept the
field strung out. Youre going to have
its racing but I love this race track. I
havent been here in quite awhile. I forgot how fun
this race track is, said Walker beside his
Peterbuilt backed #17.
Ive got a
torn ACL so Im kind of a little bit injured. I love
what Im doing and Ive got great car owners,
Jesse and Lorraine Keen
they take good care of me.
We have the best crew out here
Jonesy, Pickle, Lee,
I just love my life man, Im
doing what I love, added Walker.
