Byron Reed Scores All Star Win at Fremont

 (9-13-13) By Brian Liskai- It’s hard to believe after all the wins he has accumulated at Fremont Speedway over the years that Byron Reed hadn’t won a University of Northwestern Ohio All Star Circuit of Champions feature at “The Track That Action Built.”


The 109th appearance of the series at Fremont Speedway kicked off the Sixth Annual Jim Ford Classic with a $10,000 to win finale Saturday.


Reed, who secured his fourth track championship at Fremont last week, took the lead from Dean Jacobs on lap 17 of the 30-lap main on All Pro Cylinder Heads Night and went on to record his first ever UNOH All Star win at the track. It is Reed’s 10th career series victory. It is Reed’s third win of the season at Fremont and the 25th of his driving career at track, moving him into a tie for 17th on the track’s all-time win list.


“When you look back we really had a good year here. This means a lot. If this was tomorrow night I’d say it was my biggest win ever but it’s among the top five. I definitely wanted an All Star win here for a lot of years. Come real close a couple of times but this is the first,” said Reed beside his Crown Battery backed #5.


“This is a pretty historic track and it feels good to be a part of that history. I’m getting older now…I’m 40-years-old so I’m starting to pull out the scrap book and showing the kids ‘see what I did when I was young.’ I have to thank my crew…they had it really dialed in tonight. I have to thank Paul Kistler…this motor is my favorite motor,” added Reed.


After a fantastic battle with Caleb Griffith for the lead early in the race, Jacobs would bring the Joe and Diane Seeling machine home in second.


“This race track was pretty good tonight, I can’t complain about anything. We just didn’t tighten our car up enough and later on in the race I wasn’t as good as I was early. Obviously Byron was good. He just flat drove by me and beat me. I could stay a couple of car lengths behind I just needed some lapped cars and before you know it I saw the white flag,” said Jacobs beside his Northwest Ohio Towing and Recover/Napa Truck and Auto Center, Sugar Street Bar and Grill backed #97.


“Caleb and I had a really good race going. Generally when you get under a lapped car that’s what spooks them because you can’t see the guys off to your right too much and obviously he didn’t see Caleb and he got the bad end of the deal. This car is a good car and it’s getting better each time. We need to do a little work on it for tomorrow,” added Jacobs.


Rob Chaney would come home third after a great battle with Andrew Palker throughout the feature.


“How about Andrew Palker this year? I mean a guy who just ran Wayne County and coming out and showing what he’s got. Hat’s off to him…we had a pretty good race there and I look for him to be pretty good next year,” said Chaney beside his Stan Cortad owned #9x. “I’m ready for tomorrow and I hope we can get our car ready for it. It will be a whole new ball game tomorrow. We stayed pretty loose through this race and it just about bit us in the end. We’ll make some adjustments and we’ll be ready for it tomorrow.”


Jacobs and Griffith would bring the field to the green for the 30-lap feature with Jacobs gaining the advantage. Griffith would immediately apply pressure as Chaney, Reed, Palker, Paige Polyak, Craig Mintz and Sheldon Haudenschild gave chase. The leaders moved into heavy lapped traffic by the fifth circuit and when Jacobs slipped up in turn two Griffith was there to pounce and take the lead.


Jacobs would fight back and would drive low in turn two on lap eight to regain the top spot with Chaney locked in a tremendous battle with Reed and Palker for third. Griffith would drive back into the lead on lap 10 with Jacobs glued to his bumper. As they hit the lapped car of Jordan Mackison entering turn three, Jacobs went low and Griffith high. Griffith and Mackison made contact, sending Griffith tumbling. He was uninjured but done for the night.


On the restart Jacobs would lead Reed, Chaney, Palker, Mintz, Polyak, Haudenschild and Dale Blaney. Palker would take third on lap 12 as Jacobs and Reed pulled away. Reed would drive under Jacobs exiting turn two on lay 17 to take the lead.


Mackison would slow and the front stretch and stop after 17 circuits were complete, necessitating a caution. Reed now led Jacobs, Chaney, Palker, Mintz, Polyak, Sheldon Haudenschild and Blaney. When the green flew Reed pulled away slightly. It wasn’t until there were four laps to go when Reed caught the back of the field that Jacobs had a shot.


But, Reed maneuvered through the traffic and went on to take the win over Jacobs, Chaney, Palker, Blaney, Mintz, Polyak, Sheldon Haudenschild, D.J. Foos (up from 18th) and Jac Haudenschild (up from 20th).


Blaney’s run coupled with Shaffer’s 13th place finish increased “The Low Rider’s” lead in the UNOH All Star Circuit of Champion’s national point standings to 27 with only two races remaining in 2013. Shaffer leads the Ohio Region of the series by just 13 over Blaney.
