UMP: Last Lap Gives Carrier Win at Oakshade "Barney Oldfield Memorial"

Track report

WAUSEON, Oh. - July 25. Oakshade Raceway hosted the 22nd annual Barney Oldfield Race on Saturday that drew competitors from all across the region to compete for the $4,700 paycheck. It was the first time Salt Rock, West Virginia’s Eddie Carrier Jr. had visited the 3/8 mile dirt oval and he came away with a last lap pass Barney Oldfield win, a lot of new fans and a great appreciation of Oakshade Raceway.

It was Casey Noonan who looked strong at the start of the 40-lap Barney Oldfield UMP Late Model feature. He darted out to a large lead over Mike Bores after starting on the outside of the front row. The only caution flag flew on lap eight after Bores and Brad Eitniear tangled on the backstretch.

That tightened up the field for a double-file restart in which Andrew Reaume from Blenheim, Ontario Canada took advantage of. Reaume proceeded to open a significant lead over the rest of the field and looked strong for most of the race. Once Reaume caught the traffic at the tail end of the lead lap, he seemed to struggle just a bit. His lead began to dwindle as Casey Noonan began to close late in the race.

Carrier smoothly worked his way toward the front, getting by Noonan for second with just a few laps left. Reaume took the white flag as the leader, but Carrier made an exciting last lap pass on the backstretch to steal the victory away. Reaume’s fantastic run ended with a second place finish. Noonan settled for third. Curtis Roberts was fourth and Steve Casebolt was fifth. Matt Miller started 18th after transferring in through one of the consolation races and ended up sixth.
