Action Track Recap- Gravel Capitalizes for Fifth Outlaw Win; Clark Wires 305s

Sarver, PA (September 27, 2020) David Gravel put himself in place to take advantage an opportunity, and capitalized on it. With just two laps remaining in the 35 lap World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car main event, leader Sheldon Haudenschild suffered heartbreak, blowing a tire after having lead from the green flag in a performance that was truly awe inspiring to that point. The Connecticut Yankee in the Outlaw court capped off a week that saw him collect two huge wins and over $65,000 in earnings with a victory in the annual Commonwealth Clash at Lernerville Speedway on Saturday night.

œSheldon was the class of the field,? Gravel said in victory lane. œIf he didnt blow a tire, I would have run second. But a little bit of racing luck got us the win tonight. I dont know where Sheldon was running, but Im guessing he was running aggressive on the top and ran a torrid pace. œ

Kerry Madsen and Haudenschild led the field to the green flag and from the moment it waved, the Wooster, Ohio native appeared to be shot out of a cannon. Haudenschild quickly assumed command of the field while James McFadden surged forward from his fourth starting spot to second. Behind them, Daryn Pittman, Kraig Kinser and Madsen battled for third. With six laps in the books, Haudenschild had caught the rear of the field and he completely used the accompanying lapped traffic to his advantage. Haudenschild found all three grooves to his liking and used them all, sometimes splitting cars to pull even further away from McFadden.

The race leader stumbled on the cushion in turns one and two with nine laps down but gathered it back in the nick of time and then set to put all pursuers behind him with authority, stretching out a staggering seven second lead over the field while Pittman made his way to the third spot. Meanwhile, Gravel had been hard at work picking off positions, coming forward methodically from his sixth starting spot on the grid.  With Haudenschild virtually leaving the field in his wake, back to back feature wins seemed like all but a certainty until his tire gave up the ghost, leaving Gravel who had taken the second spot from McFadden on lap 30, with the lead and a restart forthcoming. Gravel pegged it and never looked back en route to his fifth win with the tour this season. McFadden managed to finish a strong performance with a second place run while Pittman rounded out the podium.

 œThe heat race, we had a really good race car,? Gravel remarked. œThen we drew a seven in the draw. I didnt get too upset because 35 laps here. This is one of the best tracks we go to. Theres always lanes to run three wide. Thats why its one of my favorite places to go to.?

In Allegheny Sprint Tour action, Andy Cavanaugh started on the pole of the 20 lap main event, but Justin Clark jumped to the early lead and managed to use a strong restart game to his advantage in a caution marred feature. Second running Dylan Shatzer was able to stick close to Clarks tail tank in the early going until a hard charging Ryan Lynn overtook him in the second half of the race. Clark was able to hit all his marks and drove a smooth and solid race in collecting his first career win at Lernerville. Robbie Bartchy and Jim Morris were able to come forward and take the fourth and fifth spots in the finishing order.
