Ohio's Fun Place to Race!!
2024 Race Season
Repeat Winners In Midvale Main Events
April 28, 2001
Repeat Winners In Midvale Main EventsThis past Saturday night, April 28, was week #2 at the 3/10-mile asphalt oval, known as Ohio’s Fun Place To Race, was again action packed, as 133 cars were in action. Late Models, Modifieds, Detroit Irons, Pure Stocks, Compacts, and a return for the Figure 8’s were on the card, sponsored by Downtown Ford. Although the fields were again close and competitive, four of the eight feature winners were repeats from opening night.

In the 25-lap Smokers Paradise Late Model feature, 16 cars lined up with Tim Allensworth and Tom Garabrandt unable to start. Ron Jaberg, Jr., who picked up a heat race win earlier in the evening, started on the pole and led the rest of the field until a lap 4 caution. On the restart, Bob Sibila, the Late Model driver with the most feature wins in 2000, moved immediately to the outside and took over the top spot. Opening night feature winner, Marcus Malcuit, was also moving his way up through the field, but was caught behind the runner-up car of Keith Thomas. The duo was joined in a battle for 2nd by Mike Miller, but Malcuit, after another restart, was able to put a strangle hold on the spot. At this time, Sibila had built up a 1/2 straightaway lead over Malcuit, but a caution by his son, Bob Sibila, Jr. erased his big lead. During the slowed laps of the caution, problems arose for the Massillon driver, as his #83 car had a belt pop off, retiring him for the evening. That handed the lead to Strasburg, Ohio’s, Malcuit who would go on to win his 2nd feature in as many tries during the early porting of the 2001 season. Following the Esber Beverage/Citgo #75 across the stripe were the Thomas, Miller, Bear Schwartz, and Jaberg. Gary Hoopingarner, Kenny Stevens, Duane Dunn, Paul Sibila, and Bob Sibila completed the top ten. Tim Sibila picked up the first of two heats earlier in the evening, when he was able to hold off a hard charge from his uncle Bob. Farmer Smith, the top qualifier, dropped out of the feature event.

Mike Buchanan and Jeff Smith brought the field of Tolloti Pipe Modifieds down for their 20-lap feature event. Smith, in his Ford powered machine, took the early lead as Mario Kelly moved up to second. However, the quickest car on the track seemed to be that of Glen Jewell, as he took his Texas Roadhouse/Hydraulic Parts Store ride from the outside of row three into second by lap five. Shortly after, Jewell ducked low and completed the pass of Smith for the lead. The night’s top qualifier, Tim Allensworth, was not far behind, as near the halfway point, the Coshocton driver put his car into second. Smith, who continued to fall back, spun, caused a caution, and set up a five lap shootout for the top three cars of Jewell, Allensworth, and the opening night feature winner, Dusty Woodie. The trio would battle, with Allensworth looking low and high over the last couple of laps, but New Philadelphia, Ohio’s, Jewell, would go on to pick up his first feature win of the season. Allensworth and Woodie followed, with John Wilson and Mark Enos completing the top five. Smith, Mark Striker, Mario Kelly, Jim McCune, and George Bowers finished off the top ten. Jewell and McCune won the evening’s heats.

In what may have been the most interesting race of the evening, 24 cars battled it out in the 20-lap Tusco Net Detroit Iron feature. Waylon Orr, who started on the pole, led the first couple of laps before spinning and collection two of his teammates – Jimmy Orr and Roger Butler, as well as Todd Miller. All were able to continue, but the new leader was Tammy Randolph. Randolph, looking for her first career feature win, led several laps until she also spun by herself in turn two. Don Rufener, Jr., who inherited the lead, would hold the top spot until Chris White and Joe Linard would get by. With White leading and Linard on the outside during the final circuit, White locked up the brakes in turn three, slid high, and opened up the inside groove. The night’s top qualifier and feature winner opening night, Kevin McClintock, who was biding his time in third, jumped to the inside, passed the pair and crossed the stripe first to make it two for two this season. The Broadrun Cheesehouse/Jenei Drilling #38 was followed by Linard, Doug McMillen, White, and Bill Aubihl. Tim Gowins, Joe Sanford, Jr., Don Rufener, Jr., Tim Skinner, and Jimmy Orr completed the top ten. Miller, Rufener, and Shane Billiter won the heats.

The exciting Papa John’s Pure Stocks were next to take the speedway for their 15-lap feature. As soon as the green dropped, cars bunched up and went as high as five wide eventually causing the first caution when the #10 of Vince Martin ended up on the roof of the #01 of Scott Ollis. Both were eliminated from the event as well as John Leasure. As the field spread out, the quicker cars that started toward the rear, were able to move up. Bryan Aubihl, the feature winner opening night, took the top spot after halfway and never looked back for his second feature win of the year. Shane Ball, Barney Gerber, Brian Wood, and top qualifier, Mike Martin followed the Cheap Tobacco/Great Time Hobbies #69 across the line. Shawn Harper, Gary Penland, Adam Ridgway, Paul Parson, and Chester McMasters rounded out the top ten. Leasure and Teddy Oliver won the preliminary events.

In Canton Auto Salvage Compact action, Jason Nealey won his first feature event. The Musick and Son Heating and Cooling/Russ Moore & Sons Concrete #15 held off Jason Shaw, Willie Grove, Kelly McNutt, and Rich Fox for the win. The win helped the New Philadelphia, Ohio, driver keep a secure hold onto second in points.

In the second of three features, Akron, Ohio driver Blaine Partee took his Flashback’s Diner #90 across the stripe first, for the second time during the evening, as he also won a heat. Following him to top five finishes were Brian Ridgway, Chuck Elkins, Lewis Powell, and Randy Hahn.

In the third and final Compact feature event, Brian Oliver made it two for two for the season as he took his Danny’s Auto Parts/Tappan R.V. #34 to victory lane. Chad Squires, Adam Stewart, Bruce Gibson, and Ben Gibson rounded out the top five. Willie Grove, Rocky DeLuca, Partee, and Oliver were heat winners.

The night was also the season opener for the Dale’s Heating and Cooling Figure 8’s. Compact drivers that wanted to compete, signed up and raced 15-laps for prize money. One major accident at the intersection, caused the race to be briefly stopped. Greg Grove was running up front and Brian Oliver, who was back in the field, had a collision that both drivers will not forget. Both cars then went towards the front straight-away wall and came to a stop. Both Grove and Oliver were okay. The final results showed Canton, Ohio’s, Vic Paul as the winner, with Chad Squires, Chris Flickinger, Brian Ridgway, and John Wissman completing the top five.

This coming Saturday night, May 5 will be Tolloti Pipe night at the races. Two features will be held for each of the five divisions, as no heat races will be held. Qualifying will be from 4 –6 with racing action starting at 6:30 sharp. Admission prices will not be raised for this special event.
