Findlay, OH (August 25, 2016) – It’s not the championship chase that we’ve become accustomed to. In recent years, Dale Blaney has practically “owned” the battle for the championship of the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions for winged sprint cars. By this late in the season, his overwhelming point total usually makes his next series crown a matter of WHEN, not IF.
In 2016, it’s not playing out that way. The point lead is a mere 14 points…and the lead belongs to local racing star, Alvada’s Chad Kemenah, not Blaney. The All Star series rolls into Millstream Speedway this Sunday night, August 28, with the series title very much in question. In fact, Wooster’s Sheldon Haudenschild, son of sprint car hall-of-famer Jac Haudenschild, is only 74 points out of the lead and is very much in the hunt. The results of Millstream’s $5,000 to win feature event will have a major impact in deciding this year’s championship.
Millstream Speedway also welcomes another must-see event this week, as the 2nd Annual Ron Jenkins Memorial for stock cars (and trucks!) rounds out the evening’s card. This event is named in honor of a local stock car racing legend who was a former track champion, and who has supported many drivers and teams over the years with sponsorship, parts, supplies, and encouragement. That same stock car community has come together in support to make this year’s event pay $1521.00 to win the 21 lap feature, with $100 just to start. This nearly unheard of payout, along with a variety of contingency prizes, promises to bring one of the largest and most talented field of stock cars ever assembled in the 64 year history of Millstream Speedway.
Spectator gates open this week at 3:00pm, with hot laps beginning at 6:30 pm. For more news and event details, please go to www.millstreamspeedway.net .
