Blaney Survives Weather, Attrition to Claim Commonwealth Clash Schatz garners runner-up honors to extend Outlaws championship lead to 114 points
SARVER, Pa. — Sept. 22, 2012 — Patience was key on a late, chilly and wet Saturday night at Lernerville Speedway.
Following a lengthy delay to the Commonwealth Clash, in which the program had to restart after weather postponed the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series event during qualifying, a patient Dale Blaney was credited with his first Outlaws victory of the season as attrition took its toll on the frontrunners.
“I knew it was going to be tough for them to get it in,” he said. “We just put ourselves in good position and were fortunate enough to win one.”
