Schild Styles in DWIDude Dash

Fast qualifier and current points leader, Chris Schild drew the pole position for the start of the 50 lap, 24 car main event, flanked by Jeff Pollard. Schild was first out of turn 2 with the lead as Colt James slipped into second ahead of Englehardt. Ian Webster, second in points, had his night go bad early when he spun on lap 12 scattering the field behind him. On the restart, the front of the field stayed together, while Charles Buxton spun in turn 2. James put pressure on Schild for the lead as the race went back to green.


Allen Alexander and Bobby Joe New made contact battling for position on lap 18 with A. Alexander sliding off the track and heading to the pits to keep the race under green. Adam Haugh would bring out the yellow on lap as he spun in his new ride recently bought for Stormin’ Steve Sims. James was knocking on the bumper of Schild as the race resumed, with the top three breaking clear of the fight for fourth.


Mike Williams would bring out a yellow on lap 24 when he looped his ride between turns 1-2. As the race came to the mid-point the top five were Schild, James, Ryan Englehardt, Pollard and four time ‘Spectacular’ winner, Tommy Gural. In the pack, Kyle Sirrizotti and Joe Aramendia were battling for eighth when David Machen got turned the wrong direction to bring about a caution.


On the restart the top three stayed together and inched ahead of the remainder of the field. But caution was quickly back out for debris on lap 28. James tried to get inside Schild on the restart, only to have Teresa Gural spin in turn 2. James again tried to dive inside on the next restart but was unable to get by and fell back in line.


John Hernandez and Buck Basey made contact on lap 29, with Hernandez getting turned around. New and Haugh Made contact as the race resumed with Haugh spinning. Once back to green, James again was putting the heat on Schild for the top spot. As the top six put distance on the field, Sirrizotti finally got around Aramendia for eight, with Leland Waddell following his through for ninth.


Cody Smith spun on lap 34 and was narrowly missed Williams, but more important was James being forced to pit under the yellow with overheating and a flat tire. On the restart, Schild got a car length on Englehardt now in second. But caution came out again on lap 36 when Machen slid off the back stretch. Schild, Englehardt and Pollard stayed glued at the bumpers at the restart, with Pollard looking for way past Englehardt.


This gave Schild the chance to build a slight edge while they battled for second. It also gave To. Gural the opportunity to close the fight. Lap 43 saw Smith spin after contact with Lloyd Alexander to bring out the yellow. The top three inched away on the restart, but it wasn’t long until To. Gural rejoined the scrap.


After getting pressured from Englehardt, Schild managed to get a can length on the pack battling for second. With two to go, Englehardt would slide high in turns 3-4. This Gave Pollard and To. Gural the shot to get by, but they got tangled going into turn 1 collecting Englehardt in the process. This would set up a green, white, checkered finish, with Pollard and To. Gural back in their spots. Schild was able to hold off the challenges of both Pollard and To. Gural in the last two laps to grab the victory and increase his points lead.
