Ron Blair Best at Eldora’s “Johnny Appleseed Classic”

By Bob Buffenbarger

 

Rossburg,Oh.- The SOD/NRA three race Ohio Weekend concluded Sunday night as part of the annual “Johnny Appleseed Classic” at Eldora Speedway, and Ron Blair put his stamp on this one as he dominated the 20 lap feature.

 

With a big crowd on hand, Blair shot out front at the green from his outside front row start. Fourth starting Butch Schroeder quickly moved into 2nd with Michigan’s Ryan Ruhl looking strong in the early going. The only caution of the event came on the 4th lap and Schroeder closed in on Blair as the green waved once again. However, Blair would have none of that and motored out to a substantial lead using the top of the track near the wall.

 

At the halfway point Ruhl was still 3rd behind the leaders with Jared Horstman on his tail.  Brandon Wimmer was stalking cars and by lap 14 had made his way to 3rd. In the late stages of the feature Horstman was able to dispose of Ruhl but Blair was in his own zone as he left everyone racing for position.

 

In victory lane Blair exclaimed, “FINALLY, a win at Eldora” and thanked his parents for the help and a smooth driving car. Behind Blair was Schroeder, Wimmer, Horstman and Ruhl.

 

Heats for the 33 cars on had were won by Wimmer who won heat #1 after Kyle Sauder flipped while leading.(Sauder was okay), Dustin Daggett, Beau Stewart and Schroeder. Todd Heuerman won the B main.
