ROSSBURG, Ohio (June 20, 2015) – Greg Wilson is a two-time UNOH All Star Circuit of Champion. But in Saturday night’s Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek A-Feature presented by NKTelco at Eldora Speedway, he was battling the legend – Steve Kinser. Kinser, from Bloomington, Indiana, tried to pass him high, but Wilson, who started fifth, led the final 16 laps to collect $5,000. “This is tough,” said Wilson, who hails from Benton Ridge, Ohio. “There are 50 or 60 cars here. I knew Kinser would have some clean air and I was giving the outside away. I actually moved up and pulled the wing back. I just got lucky. I watched that man in his prime and he’s the baddest son of a gun to ever drive a sprint car. It’s just awesome to win at Eldora, especially during Speedweeks. Hopefully we can keep the ball rolling.” Kinser tried everything he could to get another victory at Eldora. “I knew he wasn’t going to get off the bottom, “Kinser said. “I was kind of surprised because he kind of pulled up. If he had pulled about a little bit more I would have moved to the bottom. I’d have had a better chance. But, I kind of overworked my tires at the end.” DIRTcar UMP Modified winner Taylor Cook Dale Blaney, who won at Attica (Ohio) Raceway Park Friday night, was running second with seven laps to go and was closing in on race leader Wilson. However, his left wheel came off entering Turn 1, sending his car into the outside wall and then flipping down the banking. He was uninjured but finished 22nd. Kasey Kahne, who has 17 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series victories, finished ninth. Sheldon Haudenschild now leads the Ohio Sprint Speedweeks points. Wilson is just six points back with seven races to go. Taylor Cook, from Shelby, N.C., battled with Travis Stemler early on, but captured the UMP DIRTcar Modified race at Eldora. His father, Jerry, is the car chief on Tony Stewart’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series car. Stock Car winner Frank Paladino “We struggled in the heat race,” Cook said. “We couldn’t get enough forward drive. My dad and I went to work and we tried to tighten it up and we got it perfect. It’s great to win at Eldora. It’s a great feeling. We’ve had a rough start to the season so to win at the world-famous Eldora is pretty awesome.” Following Cook was Jonathan Taylor and his brother Evan Taylor. Stemler and Rob Starkey rounded out the top-five. Frank Paladino led all 15 laps of a spirited Eldora stock car race. Rob Trent was second, while Earnie Woodard, Anthony Goode and Chris Douglas rounded out the top five. Donnie Jeschke flipped wildly in Turn 3 midway through the race. He was uninjured and finished 20th. The next event on the Eldora Speedway schedule is the 32nd Kings Royal weekend on Friday and Saturday July 17-18.
