Ronnie Roach Takes Home Super Late Model Win at Orlando SpeedWorld

No "r" word for Orlando SpeedWorld. After a week off from
the concert at Orlando SpeedWorld, the racers were ready
to go.

Dalton Zehr #63 Bandalero not only took home the heat win
but also the feature win. And he won the feature race
from the pole and lead every lap in the heat and feature
race. Following Dalton to the checkered was #l, #lW
Derrick Wood, #38 and #ll Brandon Thomson.

Darren Gould in his #67 modified took the heat win. But
it was #30 John Foerg who had the pole for the feature
event and won from the pole. There was a little spinning
done by the #34 Frank Polly, #38 and #99 but no major
damage. Following Foerg across the finish line was #75
Bobby Blake, #67 Darren Gould, #38 and #34 Frank Polly.

Bobby Orr #30 won the heat race for the Mini Stocks.
But it was the #07 Dick Lazslo on the pole for the feature
event. Lazslo was able to jump to the lead but it did
not take Orr long before he was in the lead and maintained
it to take the win. Following Orr was #7 Tim "Missileman"
McPhail, #07 Dick Lazslo, #88 R.J. Arnone, and #07x Steve
Wagner.

Super Stocks had two heat races. #50 Jeff Wright and #00
John Hodge won the heats. The #50 Jeff Wright sat on the
pole for the feature event and was able to lead the race
until the last few laps. Rich Clouser, driving the #17 of
Rob Watford, was able to pass Wright for the lead and
take home the win. But there was alittle bumping before
the end as Closer bumped Wright to get around him and
Wright decided to do the same to Clouser except he bumped
too hard and spun himself out having to go to the rear of
the pack. Needless to say, Wright was not happy but that
is racing Orlando style. Following Clouser to the
checkered was #12 Cory Freed, #00 John Hodge, #6 Chad
Pierce and #2 Ron Whaley.

Sorry, but I missed the Super Late Heats but on the pole
for the feature event was #22 Larry Osteen. But it was
a determined #14 Ronnie Roach who took the lead and NEVER
looked back. Following Roach across the finish line was
#22 Larry Osteen, #26 Mike Murphy, #33 Ricky Wood, and
#45 Mack Hanbury.

Rick Johns #4 and Robert Hight #23 were the heat winners
in the Sportsman division. On the pole for the feature
was #31 Paul Colgan. Colgan quickly jumped to the lead
on the green and maintained it until he spun out. The
#77 Danny Shearer blew his engine and had a nice little
fire for a second. Also in the field was a Classic
Car with the Sportsman which made it very interesting.
Once Colgan spun, the #4 Rick Johns took over and won.
Following Johns was #93 Bruce Gayton, #31 Paul Colgan,
#9 Kelly Jarrett, and #5. I would like to add that the
#31 did a great job of coming back from the rear to take
third after his spin.

The #8 and #l Coy Riddle were the big winners in the
heat races for the Strictly Stocks. On the pole for
the feature event was the #8 but it was the #5 Charlie
Pitts that was able to pass #8 and take the lead.
Following #5 Charlie Pitts over the finish line was
#8, #l Coy Riddle, #45 Jim Leslie, and #33 Frank
Costantino. After the race, the #5 was told he jumped
the start and the win was given to the #8.
