Sheldon Haudenschild Takes Waynesfield Speedweek Win
June 21, 2015

With two nights of racing in the books for Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Cometic Gasket, The UNOH All Star Circuit of Champions made their yearly visit to Waynesfield Raceway Park in Waynesfield, Ohio. A packed house was greeted with a fast racetrack despite the magnitude of rain that saturated Midwest Ohio. Waynesfield track officials clocked in some overtime to provide the best possible racing surface despite the excess water.

Sheldon Haudenschild earned the Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Cometic Gasket victory on Sunday night, June 21st at the Waynesfield Raceway Park in Waynesfield, Ohio. It was Haudenschild’s first UNOH All Star Circuit of Champions victory of the 2015 season and his second career victory with the series. The Wooster, Ohio native survived one caution, countless laps of lapped traffic and a continuous battle with James McFadden to win at the Waynesfield bullring. Haudenschild now has three consecutive podium finishes with the UNOH All Stars during the 2015 edition of Speedweek.

“This feels great” said Sheldon Haudenschild, “I just want to thank all of my sponsors and my crew….my mom and dad…everyone…this wouldn’t be possible without all of those guys…I want to give Bonzai Bruns credit for helping us change things around a little bit…hopefully we can do this night-in and night-out.”

After taking sole command of the 35-lap main event with 22 laps in the books, Sheldon Haudenschild, who started fourth on the grid, navigated the top side of the race track; keeping ‘Aussie’ native James McFadden and pole sitter Tim Shaffer at bay. Despite a few slide job attempts by McFadden to get back by Haudenschild during the closing circuits, it was the familiar black ‘93’ hanging on for the $5,000 victory.

“Oh man, I love coming to this place” Haudenschild said, “I was a little worried in the heat race…it got pretty slick, then they ended up watering it right before the feature…we got rolling around there in the ‘A’ and then I knew we had a good track to race on…I had a blast racing with James (McFadden).”

James McFadden would hang on to finish second after starting the on the pole. Tim Shaffer, who joined McFadden on the front row for the start of the A-main, would come home third. With the victory, Sheldon Haudenschild now extends his lead in the 33rd Annual Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Cometic Gasket standings heading into Monday night’s program at Wayne County Speedway.

A strong field of 50 UNOH All Star Circuit of Champions ‘410’ sprint cars signed in for competition at the Waynesfield Raceway Park high banks on Sunday afternoon. The All Star roster was split into five groups of ten qualifiers with all drivers qualifying against those in their respective heat race. Brady Bacon, Tim Shaffer, Steve Kinser, Cody Darrah, and Roger Crockett each earned ‘fast time’ during their respective group qualifying efforts, with Tim Shaffer earning the fastest time of the night overall during qualifying time trials; recording an official time of 10.763 seconds around the 1/3 mile dirt oval. Brady Bacon, Greg Wilson, Nate Dussel, and Jared Horstman rounded out the top five fastest qualifiers.

Preliminary action would continue with five 10-lap heat races with the top-four finishers transferring to the 35-lap main event. Brady Bacon, Chad Kemenah, ‘The King’ Steve Kinser, Sheldon Haudenschild, and Oregon native Roger Crockett each earned victories during heat race competition. Sprint car ‘Hall of Fame’ inductee Danny Smith picked up the evening’s C-main victory.

James McFadden earned the UNOH All Star dash victory; guaranteeing the pole position for the $5,000-to-win, 35-lap main event. All preliminary competition would come to a close after Stuart Brubaker picked up the B-main victory.

The Performance Powder Coating ASMA Mini Sprints joined the All Stars to make up a powerful program of racing. A total of 24 mini sprints signed in to compete for a spot in the 20-car field A-main. Chris Bounds and Gage Etgen lead the field to the opening green flag to get the feature program underway. There was no clear leader in the opening lap as Bounds and Etgen stayed side-by-side for the top spot. Etgen finally managed to claim the lead on the second lap of the main. A group of cars got together exiting turn two. One of which was the 81H of Anthony Haas when he went upside crushing the right side of the wing. On the restart, Etgen held on to the lead with Bounds trying to chase him down. Bounds began to run out of steam shuffling back to fourth allowing Chase Dunham and Rod Henning to make a run for the lead. Dunham secured second and began to pull away from Henning when his car went over the cushion almost making contact with the outside wall. This mishap resulted in a ninth place finish for Dunham. This opened the door for Henning allowing him to make a run for the lead and claim the victory. Gage Etgen held on for a second place finish with Chris Bounds finishing in third. Gunnar Lucius, Ty Tilton, and Gage Etgen came away with heat race wins. Ron Coleman picked up the hard charger award and the B-main win.

Racing returns to Waynesfield Raceway Park next Saturday night, June 27th. A full program including the Buckeye Machine Non Wing Sprint Cars, Performance Powder Coating AMSA Mini Sprints, Post Agri Service UMP Modifieds, Block Insurance Tough Trucks, and Indian Lake Outfitter Compacts are on the agenda. Pitside gates open at 4PM, grandstands at 5PM. Hot laps get underway at 6PM with racing at 7PM.
