It was “Sprints Gone Wild” at Waynesfield Raceway Park on Saturday night July 31st. Thanks to Ray Marshall at Buckeye Machine Fabricators Incorporated, the Ohio Cycleworx 360 Sprint Cars joined the racing program along with the Lee’s Hydraulics Non Wing Sprint Cars, Post Agri Service UMP Modifieds, and the JR and Sons Service Center Compacts. It was also corporate night for Tim Hogan’s Carpet Outlet in Lima, Ohio. Ron Hammons and his bunch were on hand under the hospitality tent having a great time, and we were glad to have them!

Starting off the racing action were the Ohio Cycleworx 360 Sprint Cars. The Monster Energy sponsored # 48 of Tommy Kerce would lead the field to the green flag, but getting a great start from inside row number 2 was “The Hurricane” Randy Hannagan, aboard the Dennis Yoakum owned #22d. Hannagan flew to the front of the field as caution waved after lap 1 for the Team Fenner, Wertz Hardware #34 of “The Ohio Hammer” Luke Hall for a flat right front tire. When racing resumed, Hannagan held down the point over a charging “Mr. Excitement” Tim Allison in the Ohio Cycleworx #11 and “The Bellefontaine Bandit” JR Stewart, in the Ron Hammons owned #6s. Caution would wave again on lap four for the #17 of Jared “Hurricane” Horstman, who came to a stop in turn 4 with rear end problems. When the green flag flew again, Tim Allison made a strong challenge on Hanngan through the next lap, until the red flag flew for the upside down car #6z of Zach Ames. Ames would walk away under his own power, but his car was finished for the evening. This time when the green flew again Hannagan was able to get a better restart, and took off with the lead. JR Stewart was able to get by Allison for second and made several attempts to get by Hannagan in lapped traffic, but time ran out as Hannagan picked up the feature win followed by Stewart, Allison, #28h Hud Horton, and #6 Mike Dussel rounding out the top 5. Heat races were won by #34 Luke Hall, #11 Tim Allison, and #6s JR Stewart. Special recognition goes out to #34b Donald “Bounce” Ryder, making his first ever appearance in a sprint car. Bounce is a lifelong friend of Jack Hewitt and is the band director for the “Pride of the Southland” marching band at the University of Tennessee. Dr. Ryder had nothing but high praise for his competitors, the Team Fenner crew and the staff at Waynesfield.

The Lee’s Hydraulics Non Wing Sprint feature will be made up on Saturday August 14th at the beginning of racing action. Heat races were won by #57 Thomas Meseraull, #54 Matt Westfall, and #8b Mike Brecht.
