Blaney Gets Another One Up North

Dale Blaney will team with car owner Paul Siva for the Winter Heat Sprint Car Showdown at Cocopah Speedway in January.

WILLISTON, N.D. — Dale Blaney continued his phenomenal season Wednesday, taking his eighth University of Northwestern Ohio All Star Circuit of Champions feature win at Williston Basin Speedway. “The Low Rider” has now won seven of the last 10 series events and ran his career total to 107.

With one more feature win Blaney, who currently leads the UNOH All Star national points as he seeks to become the series’ first five-time champion, would match his All Star win total for 2008 and 2012. Blaney has won an incredible 35 percent of the UNOH All Star features in 2014. Overall in 2014, Blaney has recorded 12 feature victories, including the 8 UNOH All Star triumphs.

Blaney, who started third in his Tony Kennedy owned machine, would drive to the high side of Jac Haudenschild to take the lead and never looked back. Tim Kaeding would drive the Tom and Sherry Leidig owned, Southern Pacific Farms/Rick’s Body Shop sponsored No. 59 around Haudenschild late for second.

The “Wild Child” would bring the Rick Rogers owned, Mondak Portables/Triple X Racing/Renegade Rentals sponsored #9W home in third.

“Can you believe I passed Jac Haudenschild on the high side? The track changed a lot from the dash to the feature and I found the high line in three and four before Haud. This is the most wins I’ve had total since 1996 so we’re on the verge of a big year,” said Blaney.

The finish:

Dale Blaney, Tim Kaeding, Jac Haudenschild, Greg Nikitenko, Kyle Fedyk, Ryder Olson, Tanner Wisk, Kevin Lawson, Dusty Lawson, Loren Rogers, Bill Holler.
