World of Outlaw Sprints - Joey Saldana felt like a win slipped away from him last weekend at Jackson Speedway when he suffered a flat tire late in the going and he made up for it on Friday, as he was victorious in the opener of Outlaw Thunder by Goodyear for the World of Outlaws at the famed Eldora Speedway in Ohio, despite significant damage to the left sideboard of his top wing.

For Saldana, it was his fourth A-Feature win of the season, which ties him with current point leader Jason Meyers atop the win list. Saldana lined up sixth and gained two spot on the opening lap and was up to third on the second circuit. He got around Donny Schatz for second on the 11th lap and took the lead from Lucas Wolfe in turns three and four on the following circuit and would pace the remainder of the distance aboard the Budweiser Maxim.

The first caution of the night flew on the 13th lap with Saldana choosing the high line to restart in, on the double file restart. He charged into turn one, with Schatz and Wolfe battling for the second spot. Saldana would open a big lead as the laps wound down, hitting lapped traffic again on the 19th go-around.

The race was scheduled for 30 laps, but was declared official after a lap-25 caution when rain began to pour down. The final caution of the night flew for four-time and defending series champion Donny Schatz, who had a flat tire while running second. He ended up 18th as the final car on the lead lap.

For Saldana, the win was his eighth with the World of Outlaws at Eldora In his career at the famed half-mile with the series he has nearly 50 Top-10 finishes. Winning at Eldora is always extra special for Saldana, as his father Joe won a number of races at the track as well during his career.

Wolfe lined up second and took the lead from Schatz on the eighth lap in traffic, using the low side of the back straightaway to get a strong run going into turn three. The native of Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania would lead four laps en route to matching his season-best finish of second. It was his second consecutive podium finish aboard the Allebach Racing Maxim as he continues to close in on his first career World of Outlaws A-Feature win.

Wolfe was held up just a bit in lapped traffic on the 12th lap allowing Saldana to close in and take the lead. After lining up on the low side on the double file restart on the 13th lap, he fell back to third, but battled right back to get around Schatz and reclaim the runner-up position.

Steve Kinser was third in the Bass Pro Shops Maxim in his first start at Eldora driving for Tony Stewart Racing.

Paul McMahan came home fourth in the Great Clips Maxim to earn his sixth Top-Five finish of the season and also moved up a couple of spots in points to seventh.

World of Outlaw Sprints - Paul McMahan had been knocking on the door for the last few weeks as he looked for his first win of the season, racking up six Top-Five finishes in his last eight starts heading into the finale of Outlaw Thunder by Goodyear at Eldora Speedway. He broke through on Saturday in impressive fashion at the famed half-mile on a very windy and chilly night to score his first win of 2010 with the World of Outlaws and his first since joining Kasey Kahne Racing earlier this season to fill in for the injured Cody Darrah.

McMahan used a strong restart on the 28th lap after lining up on the low side of the track on the double file restart while running second. He used a masterful slide job in turn one to take the lead from Sammy Swindell and would withstand one final double file restart to take home the $10,000 triumph, which was the ninth of his World of Outlaws career and his first with the series since 2007. It was his second career win with the series at Eldora.

The race began with Sammy Swindell taking the lead from Jac Haudenschild who started on the pole as the pair of Hall of Famers entered turn one. Joey Saldana moved into third on the opening circuit as the lead trio spread out a bit. Swindell set a blistering pace early in the race and was in lapped traffic just five circuits into the 30-lap contest.

Swindell masterfully worked his way through traffic and had a huge lead with five laps to go when a red flag flew for a Cale Conley flip. On the ensuing restart, Swindell chose the high side of the track and despite significant damage to his machine was able to jump out to a lead. The caution came out with three laps remaining for Joey Saldana who had a flat tire while running third, as well as Craig Dollansky who was running fourth.

On the double file restart that followed, Swindell again chose the outside line and led the field into turn one, where McMahan was able to take the lead. McMahan began the night by turning the quickest lap in time trials for the second consecutive night aboard the Great Clips Maxim.

After taking the lead, McMahan opened a slight lead while Danny Lasoski battled Swindell for the runner-up spot. The final caution of the night flew with a couple of laps remaining leading to one last double file restart. McMahan chose the outside line for the restart en route to the win.

Lasoski started 16th and steadily worked his way to the front on his way to a runner-up finish in the Casey's General Store JEI. Lasoski lined up fourth on the final restart and was able to get around both Daryn Pittman and Swindell to gain two spots.

Swindell led the first 27 laps of the race and was in control until contact with Cale Conley damaged his machine. He sustained a broken wing cylinder and also had some oil leaking from his machine during the following red flag. The three-time series champion wound up third as he continues to fill in for the injured Terry McCarl in the Big Game Treestands Maxim.

Steve Kinser finished fourth on Saturday night to earn his series leading 11th Top-Five finish of the season in the Bass Pro Shops Maxim for Tony Stewart Racing. He also took over the top spot in the series standing by three markers over Jason Meyers, who finished 13th.
