McCarl gets late race pass for Huset’s All Star win

All Star Circuit of Champions

By Brian Liskai

BRANDON, S.D. (7-31-11) – Different car, same results for
Terry “TMAC” McCarl Sunday at Huset’s Speedway. McCarl, Huset’s all-time
winningest driver, passed Tim Shaffer and Cap Henry with a lap and a half
to go to score the All Star Circuit of Champions victory Sunday.

McCarl jumped into a familiar #24 but different car – he has been piloting
the TK Concrete #55 most of the season – and took the machine to victory

“I was kind of trying to move around and I saw Cap up top and Shaffer kept
hanging around the bottom and I just made a move. These guys gave me a
great race car. They talked me into driving this late today…we kind of
just threw stuff together…everything just clicked,” said McCarl of his
15th career All Star win aboard Lynton Jeffrey’s back-up car.
It was McCarl’s second win of the season at Huset’s and the 87th of his
career (first all-time) at the track.

Cap Henry, the 2010 All Star Rookie of the Year, would grab the early lead
in his Lucas Oil/FK Rod Ends/Stanton Mopar #04, with Huset’s point leader
and four time feature winner Mark Dobmeier right on his rear bumper.
Two-time and defending All Star champ Tim Shaffer would drive from his
fifth place starting spot around McCarl on lap two to grab third. Disaster
would strike for Dobmeier on lap 11 when he made contact with the wall,
moving Shaffer to second with McCarl and three-time All Star champ Dale
Blaney in pursuit.

By the half-way mark, Henry had the big crowd on their feet as he tagged
the turn two wall lap after lap, but maintained the lead as traffic came
into play. Shaffer would drive by Henry exiting turn two on lap 18, but the
Bellevue, Ohio native fought back as they sliced and diced their way
through traffic. With 10 laps to go Henry and Shaffer were side by side.
Shaffer would lead lap 26, but Henry would rocket around the outside to
grab the lead back.

While Henry and Shaffer were slugging it out, McCarl would close quickly.
As the trio raced out of turn two on their way to the white flag, McCarl
would execute a daring bottom run exiting turn two sling shot past both
Henry and Shaffer to grab the lead. McCarl would go on to take the win over
Henry, Shaffer, Blaney and Kings Royal winner Tyler Walker.

“With about three to go I had killed the right rear tire…it took rubber
around the top. I was just trying to ride around and hang on till the
finish. Terry must be a lot better than me at saving his tires,” said Henry
of his fourth career runner-up finish with the All Stars. “I love this
track…we always run good here.”
