Chinn, Haudenschild, Hennig Are First Time Attica Winners

By Brian Liskai

Image(Attica, OH) Not only did Wayne Chinn, Brad Haudenschild and Dan Hennig beat the competition at Attica Raceway Park Friday night to record their first career wins at "Ohio's Finest Racing" speedplant, but they had to best Mother Nature as well.

Chinn, of Bradford, Ohio, dominated the Fultz Fabrications and Speedshop UMP Late Model feature on R&R Auto Wrecking and Used Cars/Merrill Lynch Financial Services Night, leaving only eight cars on the lead lap. Had it not been for three cautions during the A-main, Chinn may have lapped the entire field.

"The track was a little choppy, but that's to be expected with the rain. Gotta thank the staff for working hard to get this race in. We'd all rather race than not race," said Chinn beside his Erwin Chrysler Dodge Jeep, Sugar Creek Packaging, C.J. Rayburn Racecars backed #1.

Haudenschild, of Fredericksburg, Ohio,  took the lead from Steve Rando on lap 9 after Rando bounced out of shape, and then benefitted from cautions as he was mired in lapped traffic to take the Fremont Fence 305 Sprint feature.

"This car is actually the old Frigidaire car...it's 12 years old, it's always been a good rough track car...but we have to work the bugs out for slick tracks. But this thing was absolutely awesome tonight," said Haudenschild beside his R&B Enterprises, Vision Express, Bell Helmets and Simpson Race Products backed #10. "It was definitely my type of race track...but boy I am out of shape. Hopefully this will turn our luck around."

Hennig, of Castalia, Ohio, led all 15 laps of the dirt truck A-main, but had to hold off a late race charge from defending track champion Cory Ward to score the win.

"I was losing ground a little bit. I was missing my marks there at the end and I was just hoping for the best. Want to thank my dad and my brother, my wife and kids and everyone that helps me everyday of the week work on this thing and get it ready for two nights of racing every weekend," said Hennig beside his Reidy's Auto World, Level Performance York Fabrications backed #32h truck.

Following the heat race action, a brief shower caused about a 45-minute delay, but track crews were able to get the racing surface back into shape for the feature events.

At the drop of the green for the late model feature, Chinn bolted into the lead but Ryan Markham wasn't going to let him get away easily. Following a caution with a lap in the books, Chinn took off and was in lapped traffic in just four laps. Another caution on lap 7 had the running order Chinn, Markham, Dusty Moore, Ryan Missler, Devin Shiels, Justin Chance and Ky Harper, up from his 17th starting spot.

Again it took Chinn just four laps to get into traffic again when the green came back out, but another yellow would fly on lap 11 when Moore's great run came to and end as he lost power. Two green flag laps and another caution saw the running order, Chinn, Markham, Harper, Doug Drown and Shiels. Once the green flew again, Chinn pulled away as Markham, Harper, and Shiels waged a tremendous battle for second.

It took just four more laps again for Chinn to get into traffic, but he was on cruise control. Markham and Harper continued to race side-by-side for second. A caution for debris flew on lap 23, but Chinn pulled away the last two laps for the victory. Rounding out the top fie were Markham, Harper, Shiels and Jeremy Canada.

"2009 is pretty open for us...will hit all the big races close to home, but we're going to kind of skip around and see what we can do," said Chinn.

Steve Rando took command of the 305 sprint feature at the drop of the green with Haudenschild, D.J. Foos, Nate Dussel and Paul Weaver in tow. Rando would hit lapped traffic by lap 7, allowing Haudenschild to close. Exiting turn four to complete the ninth lap, Rando bounced around, allowing Haudenschild to slip underneath for the lead. Foos would bring out the first yellows a lap later as he coasted to a stop in turn four. Haudenschild now led over Rando, Dussel, Weaver and Jake Trevino. Just as Haudenschild was getting into lapped traffic again, another caution for debris would fly on lap 13. The car on the move  was defending champion Stuart Brubaker who had moved from 11th to fifth.

The race would go green for awhile now, and Haudenschild hit lapped traffic with five to go, but Rando's charge came to an end when he stopped in turn four. Now the running order was Haudenschild, Brubaker, Dussel, Weaver, Bobby Clark and Kevin Lee. With a clear track ahead of him, Haudenschild was able to pull away for the win, with Brubaker, Dussel, Clark and Dustin Dinan rounding out the top five.

Hennig grabbed control of the dirt truck feature at the drop of the green with Cory Ward, Josh Lozano and Alex Weichman in tow. The race went non-stop, and Ward was able to mount a challenge for the lead late in the race while Art Ball battled from his ninth starting spot up to third with four laps remaining. Hennig would hold off the challenge for the win with Ward, Ball, Dwight Waltermeier and Weichman rounding out the top five.

Attica Raceway Park will pay tribute to it's all-time winningest sprint car driver, Mark Keegan, a 12-time champion, on Jon Wright's Custom Chrome Plating Night, Friday, May 15. Besides the 410 sprints, the UMP Late Models and 305 sprints will be in action. It will also be night #5 for the Kistler Racing Products FAST (Fremont/ Attica Sprint Title) Championship Series.
