GoGirl Posted May 9, 2005 Report Share Posted May 9, 2005 Attention: All Moms If you came to San Antonio Speedway this past Mother's Day weekend looking for a little peace and quiet...you found out real quick that you came to the wrong place. Mona Turner, J.R. Eichelberger, Eric Knudtson and Joe Aramendia made a lot of noise in their feature event and each were able to roar into victory circle. Stacy Votion and Mona Turner were side-by-side for the start of the 4 lap NASCAR Women On Wheels feature event. Turner not only took the lead, she took a liking to the high groove of the racetrack. Votion made several valiant, yet futile attempts to get by Turner. This win makes it three in a row for Turner. Would all eight NASCAR Road Runner starters make it through Lap #1 in their 15 lap feature event? The answer to this question was...NO. Tony Bernal Jr. leaped into the lead in Turn 2 with George Reyes in hot pursuit. These two drivers mixed it up between Turns 3 and 4, leaving the rest of the field looking for an escape route. Randy Frautschi didn't find one and sustained front end damage. Both he and Bernal's night were over. Reyes was sent to the back of the pack. This put J.R. Eichelberger and Mark Mathias on the front row. Mathias has been unstoppable and this night looked to be no different, as he quickly moved into the lead. However, with 4 laps remaining, Mathias experienced transmission problems. Eichelberger inherited the lead and the win. Reyes recovered to finish in the second position. J.D. Votion crossed the stripe next, but was disqualified (transmission shaft) during post-race inspection. Richard Curtis, Mathias and Nathan Sloan filled out the top five finishing positions. Ten drivers were on tap for the 25 lap NASCAR Sportsman feature event. Starting on the pole was Jamie Evans followed by Garfield Shanklin, Charles Earnhardt and Keith Garrett. When the green flag waved, Evans jumped into the lead. Earnhardt and Tater Mason seemed to see more of each other than they wanted and brought out the yellow flag on several occasions. Tom Casey briefly took a turn at leading on Lap 4. Eric Knudtson then kicked it into high gear and took command on the very next lap. Could Knudtson hold off the hard-charging Justin Oates, who was now sitting on his back bumper? The answer to this question was...YES. Knudtson and his Camaro were awesome, and found themselves the center of attention in victory circle. Oates was the runner-up followed by Casey, Mason and Evans. The NASCAR Late Model division had every fan in the grandstands on the edge of their seats. They were fast. They were exciting. And in the end, it was two veterans vying for the victory and the May Madness $1,000.00 purse. Starting on Row 1 was Michael Lampton and Mike Reininger. Joe Aramendia and Donny Horelka comprised Row 2. Fast qualifier, Robert Barker, started in the fifth position. Reininger rocketed into the lead when the green flag dropped. He was able to hold off the advances of Aramendia for the majority of the race. However, with nine laps remaining both Aramendia and Barker motored past him. Reininger's great run came to an end when he and Horelka tangled coming off Turn 4. When racing resumed, the competition between Aramendia and Barker was close, real close yet squeaky clean. Aramendia held on for the win followed by Barker, Horelka, Lampton and Brian Moczygemba. Congratulations to all of the winners! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
