Shullick Jr. Rips MSA Field, Wins Sandusky
Sept. 7, 2014
MARION (OH) – They say Bad News travels fast, and last Saturday night at the Midwest Supermodified Association (MSA) Sandusky (OH) Speeedway event that news had a name, Dave Shullick Jr. Shullick Jr. would blister the BioBased.US MSA presented by Adkins Glass Field and pick up his second win in as many weeks, he claimed the Oswego (NY) winged ISMA victory the week before. A Saturday night journey that included setting fast time and a trip out of his heat race on the hook to the pit area that would result in front end geometry repairs, and a feature start from the tail. It was a win and it was fast, but far from easy.
Gene Lee Gibson and Michigander Kevin Feeney would bring the field of MSA ground pounders to the drop of the green, and Feeney would blister out on top. “Chargen” Charlie Schultz would hold up his name sake by sweeping out three wide going into turn two from his outside third row starting position and blister down the back stretch up to third in one big move. Less than one lap later he would dispose of Gibson and hustle after Feeney in a hurry. Once there he didn’t even bother to race Feeney, he just drove right on by like a red streak setting a blistering pace. That pace would come to a slow when the first yellow of the night dropped as three cars got crossed up in turn four. Included was Shullick Jr., after his team had already re-mastered the car after a heat race incident, MSA Champion and point’s leader Trent Stephens, and veteran racer Jim Paller. Shullick Jr. would rejoin the field back in his fourth spot, Paller went to the pits for repairs and rejoined at the tail, and the night finished on the hook for Stephens. Back to green and Schultz would rocket off into turn one in a cloud of dust as the field tried to stay pace. Just a handful of laps later the caution would drop for a broke racer in turn two, as Shullick Jr. had maneuvered his way into second, but well behind leader Schultz. But, now, Shullick Jr. would gain the track position and make up the much needed ground for the restart breathing down Schultz’s header pipes. Another cloud of dust and off Charlie went with Shullick Jr. in tow. Shullick Jr. would stay the pace hugging the bottom as Schultz would push up ever so slightly in the corners of turn one and two. That is where Shullick Jr. would make his move as he darted under Schultz to take command and then set a torrid pace of his own sailing to familiar place, the victory circle at Sandusky Speedway. Schultz handily sailed to second, Paller rebounded from the tail to third, and the future looks bright as youngsters A J Lesiecki and Danny Shirey rounded out the top five.
“The car was really good,” said Shullick Jr. “We kind of guessed at it stager wise, we kind of went off what we knew. We just figured what this car would want, it was excellent. It was a really good race car. It was rolling the ends and had great forward traction, that’s all you can ask for. When this car is right, it is darn near unbeatable. I think we had a perfect race car here tonight, which we do not get here very often. If we can just keep getting this race car we are going to get a lot of “W’s”, finished the happy race winner.
“I didn’t actually realize I was going three wide at the start,” said Schultz. “Jon (Henes) kind of moved up then I think he realized I was there and every one held their own and we all got through it alright. I cannot thank this crew enough. We have struggled here all year, this is the first time we have had a real good stable car underneath me. We tried some big things today that really worked, and I think we have something to work with when we come back here in October. From what we had last time until today it is a complete different set up. I cannot thank Dick Meyers and RAM Engineering enough. We really stumbled upon something here, it really paid off,” finished Schultz.
“At the beginning I thought I was going to get a really good start to get out front,” stated Paller. “But, me and the No. 19 got together coming through turns three and four; I spun out and had to start in the back. So, I just started coming back up through to get the best I could with what I had, and we ended up third. I cannot ask for better people than I got in the pit area helping me out,” finished Paller.
