SAMMY SWINDELL DOMINATES HAGERSTOWN OUTLAW SHOW-DOWN
Sammy Swindell of Cordova, TN demolished the competition for his first win
of the season in the 30-lap Pennzoil World of Outlaw feature and Rodney
Franklin of White Post, VA held off Doug Burkholder for his first win in the
ITSI 25-lap late model main event before a record breaking crowd Saturday
night at the Hagerstown Speedway. Swindell earned $10,000 for his win and
Franklin's win was his 112th career win.
Swindell started fourth in the 26-car World of Outlaw field as Joey Saldana
grabbed the early lead from the pole. On the third lap, Saldana drifted high
enough for Swindell to slip by to take the lead. Once in front Swindell had
no challengers the rest of the way.
"Its been a big problem qualifying better," said Swindell. "It makes a
difference where you start. Joey (Saldana) didn't go in low enough so we
went underneath of him to get the lead. The car ran great the rest of the
way."
Saldana ran second the entire distance and was followed by Tim Shaffer in
third, Mark Kinser fourth, and Danny Lasoski fifth. Completing the top-10
were Andy Hillenburg, Jeff Shepard, Dale Blaney, Lance Dewease, and Brad
Furr.
