SANDUSKY, OH – Dave Shullick Jr. wasted little time as he blasted to the front of the field at Sandusky (OH) Speedway last Sunday afternoon in the final race of the season for the Midwest Supermodified Association (MSA) presented by Atkins Glass. His hometown track, Shullick Jr. attacked it with a vengeance the day before in qualifying setting a new Supermodified Sandusky track record with a lap of 14.057 in his No. 94 Bodnar Chassis ride. The old record was 14.080 set by Russ Wood way back in July of 1998 during the ISMA Hy-Miler Nationals.
Starting 11th in the 16 car field, Shullick Jr. would have his work cut out for him. Tim Ice with Jon Henes alongside would bring the field of winged warriors to the start as Henes would blister to the point and set the early pace. By lap four, however, Shullick was already setting sail into fourth and charging forward. By lap six he was third and the yellow would fly. On the restart Shullick would first drive around Trevor Berry and two laps last blast by Henes to get the lead. Another lap later Henes and Berry would have their problems as the both sailed off turn one out into the grass. Both would return to the tail of the field. That would move the 2013 MSA Champion Trent Stephens up to second for the restart. But, Shullick again just blasted off as Stephens maintained second. Charlie Schultz had gone pit side at the beginning before returning to the tail and now he had fought his way up to third challenging Stephens. At the half it was Shullick, Stephens, and Schultz. A late race restart with just five laps to go looked to give Stephens a shot at the top spot, but, just like before Shullick drove away. At the finish Schultz would follow Shullick and Stephens in third as Ice came home fourth and veteran racer Bobby Dawson rounded out the top five. Both Shullick and Stephens won the heat races the day before as well.
“The whole weekend was good,” stated Shullick Jr. “We came here Friday for practice and was very fast. Then we set the new track record Saturday and won our heat race. We have one race left for this car next weekend, and looking forward to going there. It’s not one thing that makes this car fast it is a bunch of little things. Such as the details, the guy works on this thing from early morning until night time. Everybody just clicks and gets along together, it’s just a team effort and that’s the most important thing,” finished Shullick Jr.
By winning his heat race the day before Stephens locked up the 2013 MSA Championship, his third consecutive title. “We made a lot of gains this weekend. We were not happy with the car when we got here. To come out second and at least keep DJ in sight is a plus. Hopefully we can come back next season with something to compete with him. We are real happy with second place the motor was kind of cutting out so we were just hanging on there. Happy with it, just hope we come back better next year. We would not be able to do this without our great sponsors PPG, Kasper Auto Group, Domino’s Pizza, Michelle’s Café, and Schaffer Oil, and Atkins Glass for sponsoring the series. Rich and Steve they work on this car day in and day out, it take a team effort,” finished Stephens.
“We were just a little too short tonight,” noted third place Schultz. “We were good on the short runs, but on the long runs just kept getting tighter. I knew after we took the green I was too tight to go forward. So, on the first caution I gave up the track position to come in the pits and make a couple more adjustments. But, on that one long green run there the car just got tighter. A podium finish is a good way to finish out the year. We had a lot of gains this year after the Nationals, we are looking forward to next year,” finished Schultz.
