Lima, OH — (July 29, 2011) —

The Elwer Fence Sprints 25-lap feature produced one of the more thrilling events of the season, with all-time Limaland Motorsports Park race winner Tim Allison prevailing over Dylan Cisney and veteran driver Randy Hannagan.

Cisney, a UNOH student piloting a privately owned car, took advantage of his front row starting position alongside of Allison to lead the opening 14 laps. It wasn’t easy as both Tim Allison and Randy Hannagan were in hot pursuit. A dramatic two car accident on the front straight involving Tony Beaber and Todd Heuerman brought out the red flag.

The final ten laps saw thrilling racing with the three lead drivers navigating lapped traffic masterfully. It led up to a valiant, yet futile attempt by Hannagan to catch Allison at the finish line. “I have to give this one to my crew,” said Allison, on his first win of the season and 29th career during the 14-year UNOH ownership of the facility. “It’s been a while coming for me to win. Doug Wolfgang told me years ago that you are a hero one day and a zero the next. I was a zero last week and a hero today. It was a good race. I knew those guys were coming, so I had to pace myself.”
