Hannagan Ignites SOD tripleheader with Limaland victory!

Bob Buffenbarger/Cody Morris, LIMA, OHIO (5/25/2012) Randy Hannagan opened the three day Memorial Day weekend Ohio swing for the Engine Pro ASCS Sprints on Dirt presented by ARP/NRA with an exciting win at Limaland Motorsports Park on a warm Friday night. Chasing Hannagan was Shane Stewart, Ben Rutan, Jared Horstman and Hud Horton (Mike Campbell photo).

At the drop of the green of the 25 lap main event, pole sitter Dallas Hewitt led the initial circuit with Hannagan (also on the front row) and Ben Rutan soon were engaged in a three wide slide job swapping affair with Hewitt maintaining the lead and Rutan taking 2nd early on.

Lap 8 saw Hannagan make his make move as he took the lead but Rutan was keeping the pressure on and bringing Shane Stewart aboard the 3G, along with him. Also, 14th starting Jared Horstman was charging through the field taking over 4th.

By the 15th circuit Hannagan was beginning to stretch his lead while Rutan and Stewart were still staging a duel for 2nd place with Horstman in pursuit. A caution with 4 laps remaining closed the field up but when the green waved, Hannagan was up to the task and took the checkers with Stewart and Rutan following.

The five heat races were captured by Kyle Sauder, Dennis Yoakam, Hud Horton, Shane Stewart and Luke Hall. Three B mains were required due to the large car count and they were won by Tim Allison, Darren Long and Dustin Daggett. The first B main saw Greg Wheeler take a hard flip in turn two. Wheeler was not hurt.
