10, 2012) –
After giving a victory on the last lap two weeks ago, Rob Allman
was not about to make the same mistake twice.
Two weeks ago Allman was leading the WMDH Thunder Car feature when he
decided to go high entering turn three on the final lap. He got caught
behind a lapped car which allowed Hannah Lundy to cruise past for the
On Gold and Coin Night of Indiana at Anderson Speedway, Allman was not about
to let another opportunity slip through his fingers.
He took the lead at the start chased by Ronnie Rose, Earl Adams Jr., Lundy
and Chris Snyder. Snyder brought put the first of two cautions on the second
circuit when he spun on the back straight.
That allowed Lundy to use the outside line to get around Adams entering turn
three and on the first circuit used the same move to get around Rose.
The final caution flag waved on lap 13 when Ryan Buckner’s mount stopped on
the front straight.
That allowed Lundy one final chance to get around Allman on the restart, but
the veteran driver got a good restart and drove away to win by 1.7-seconds
over Lundy with Rose finishing third followed by Adams and Snyder.
It was Allman’s third feature win of the season.
“I knew she (Lundy) had to fight her way through traffic,” Allman said after
the win. “I wasn’t too worried on the restart. I just had to beat her going
into turn one.”
Lundy continued her mastery of qualifications setting fast time for the
tenth time in 2012 with a lap of 14.688-seconds. Adams was second quick at
14.952-seconds with Snyder posting the third best time at 15.008-seconds.
Rose led the entire distance to win the first of the two heat races followed
by Adams and Lundy.
In the second heat race, Allman passed Jeff Marcum on lap nine entering turn
three to record his fifth heat win of the year. Marcum finished second
followed by Buckner.
