Brad Haudenschild wins at Wayne County

Wayne County Speedway Top Story 2015
By Mike Swanger
  The 2016 season long points races got underway Saturday night at NAPA Wayne County Speedway on VP Racing Fuel night. Two time defending track champion of the Fisher Performance Sprints, Brad Haudenschild of Millersburg would start on the outside front row with Jordan Ryan on the pole and those two would go side by side for the opening lap and after a lap one caution for Troy Kingan and Jason Dolick as those two touched coming out of turn four and into the frontstretch wall. Both had flat tires but would return to the race. On the restart, Ryan made a couple of attempts on the low side of turn two to take the lead but Haudenschild used the extreme highside of the track to start to pull away as Danny Mumaw began to close in on Ryan for second. A caution on lap 13 for a spun Mitch Harble bunched the field back together and the return of the green would see Mumaw powering past Ryan for second as the yellow would fly one lap later for Scott Riley spin. Haudenschild and his Kempthorn Auto Mall, Fire & Ice Pub and All Things Retro #38k opened up a six car length lead as Mumaw would close in on the last two laps and when the checkered flag flew, was right on the rear of Haudenschild’s sprinter. Ryan would hold off a challenge from Chris Myers for third as Harble recovered from his spin to take fifth. Myers and Mumaw claimed the heat wins
