Last season Joey Saldana won five times on half-mile tracks. Heading into action on Friday night at Eldora Speedway, he had won 11 times in 2007 through 67 A-Feature events, but had yet to earn a victory on a half-mile.

 

 

That all changed on Friday night as used a fast race car and a little bit of luck to earn his 12th World of Outlaws A-Feature win of the season at Eldora Speedway in the opener of the American Revolution Weekend Presented by Chevrolet.

 

Saldana was running third when leader Donny Schatz had a right rear tire explode on the 10th lap. On the ensuing restart, Saldana battled Steve Kinser and took the lead on the 12th lap exiting the fourth turn and would go on to lead the remainder of the race.

 

“It was definitely a hard fought race,” said Saldana, driver of the Open Joist JEI. “We had a strong car. We’ve had a very good season so far and we just have to continue to do what we are doing.”

 

Saldana lined up third for the 30-lap contest and dove low exiting the second turn on the opening lap to take the runner-up spot from Paul McMahan. He then fell back to third as Steve Kinser got around him for the second position. Saldana then chased Kinser for seven laps before taking the lead.

 

“We were pretty tight and once the track freed up about halfway through, we started running pretty good on the top,” explained the winner. “It was smooth sailing from there on out. Obviously the middle was good for a while and at the end, you had to be up on the top to keep the speed up.”

 

The race began with pole sitter Donny Schatz jumping to a quick lead. The reigning World of Outlaws champion had opened an eight car length advantage on the second lap when the caution flag flew for the first time on the night.

 

On the restart, Saldana went to the high side of the track as he stayed with Schatz. At the same time, Steve Kinser slid underneath McMahan for the third spot and set his sights on Saldana in second. Kinser dove under Saldana exiting the fourth turn on the sixth lap to take the runner-up position.

 

The leaders began to encounter lapped traffic on the seventh go-around, with Schatz running the middle of the track and Kinser down low. The 20-time champion began to close on Schatz, as the pair exited the fourth turn on the ninth lap. Schatz came to a stop in turn one after his right rear tired exploded while leading, handing the lead over to Kinser.

 

Kinser led on the restart, with Saldana close behind him. Saldana made the pass for the lead and ultimately the win on the 13th lap as he dove under Kinser coming off the fourth turn. Kinser fought back on the next lap through turns one and two, before Saldana opened a slight advantage.

 

“I was pretty good during the first part of the race,” said Kinser, driver of the Q Oil Maxim. “After the first yellow, I sealed the tires off. I tried a few things tonight and just got the car too free on the long runs. We either needed to be a little more free or had it so I could have run above which would have been hard for me to do.”

 

As the race neared its midpoint, Saldana began to encounter heavy traffic as he used the high side of the track. With 10 laps to go, Kinser got held up in traffic as Saldana continued to slice his way through the slower machines. A caution flew on the 24th lap, which ultimately led to a red flag for a fuel stop.

 

Saldana used a strong restart to charge into the first turn ahead of Kinser. Daryn Pittman got around McMahan on the 25th lap to move into third, with McMahan taking the spot back on the next circuit.

 

“The car was pretty good tonight,” said McMahan, driver of the Bass Pro Shops machine. “We tried a new chassis from what we have been running. It seemed to help. We qualified well enough to start up front and won our heat race. It’s good to have a podium finish at Eldora. We were a good third-place run.”

 

The leaders again encountered lap traffic on the final two laps, with Saldana opening a sizeable lead and taking the checkered flag nearly a second-and-a-half ahead of Kinser, with McMahan in third and Pittman in fourth.

 

When the final caution flew with six laps remaining, Saldana had opened up a sizeable lead and had a couple of lapped car between himself and Kinser. By way of World of Outlaws rules in 2007, those cars went to the rear of the field and put Kinser right on Saldana’s bumper on the restart.

 

“On the last restart, I knew that as long as I hit my marks, I would be all right,” said Saldana. “I had a few lapped cars between us that were taken away, but that’s just how it goes.”

 

Saldana and his crew put enough fuel in the car under the red flag with six laps to easily get them to the finish, but also a fuel load that would not disrupt the balance of the car, as happened earlier this season on a fuel stop when Saldana was battling for a win.

 

“At Edmonton (Castrol Raceway) we put 10 or 15 gallons in it and it really messed me up,” Saldana said. “Tonight, we just put five gallons in and it didn’t upset the car at all.”

 

Pittman finished fourth on Friday night to earn his 45th Top-10 finish of the season. In the process, he moved into the fourth spot in points, just 28 markers behind Danny Lasoski who is in third.

 

“Fourth at Eldora with my track record here the last few years is awesome,” smiled Pittman, driver of the Titan Garages Maxim. “We built a new car this week and built it with the hope that it would be good at this race track and it was good. We’ll keep running it. It was a good point night for us as well and we qualified well. You’re never happy to say you ran fourth, but tonight I am.”

 

Terry McCarl started eighth and finished fifth aboard the Big Game Treestands Eagle to earn his 31st Top-10 finish of the season.

 

Dale Blaney was sixth in the Hoosier Tires Maxim. In the final 20 laps, Schatz worked his way back to finish seventh in the ParkerStore J&J, as he continues to chase his second consecutive series championship. Randy Hannagan was eighth in the Penthouse Magazine Maxim, with Jason Solwold ninth in the City Wide Insulation Maxim. Jac Haudenschild rounded out the Top-10 in the Wright One Construction Maxim after starting 24th to earn the KSE Race Products Hard Charger Award.

 

After enduring some bad luck in the last number of events, Kinser was glad to leave Eldora with a solid finish as the season continues to win down. He has won nine times this season and is currently in the sixth position in the championship points.

 

“I can’t complain,” said Kinser. “It wasn’t too bad of a night. It was better than what is has been the last two or three nights.”

 

Kinser, who is the winningest driver in the history of Eldora Speedway, drove a portion of the race in pain, after being struck by a rock. Like most of the rest of the drivers, he was not worried about fuel, but rather debris on the track that was the culprit of several cut tires.

 

“The tires were a concern,” explained the native of Bloomington, Indiana. “There were a lot of rocks out there. I got a big knot on my chin. I probably should have had a rock screen on. I am not sure where the rocks came from, I had not seen them earlier in the year.”

 

McMahan who won at Eldora earlier this season fell back to fourth early, before getting around Danny Lasoski. He then battled Pittman for a number of laps relinquishing the third spot for a single lap, before regaining it on the 25th circuit.

 

“Right before the last caution I was coming back to Steve (Kinser) and I think on the red my tires sealed up a little bit,” said McMahan, who drivers for Eldora Speedway owner Tony Stewart’s team. “On the restart Daryn (Pittman) got by me and I was able to get back by him.”

 

Pittman tried to be as cautious as he could, knowing the problems that a number of drivers had with tires throughout the night. His team went through a couple of wings on the night, having to change one after it was hit by debris during the Crane Cams Dash.

 

“The tires were definitely more of a concern than the fuel was,” said Pittman. “I don’t know if everyone was running over stuff or what. There seemed to be some debris on the track doing some damage. I was definitely concerned and you saw it early in the race, so you knew they weren’t wearing them out. They were running over stuff. I’m glad to finish the race with all the air in the tires.”

 

The World of Outlaws return to action on Wednesday, September 26 at Orange County Fair Speedway in Middletown, New York to make up an event that was postponed by rain earlier this season.
