Shackleford scores WOFS win

Dane, Smith get victories

ANDERSON — Jess Shackleford took the lead on a restart with 28 laps remaining and survived four more restarts to win the inaugural Winged Outlaw Figure-8 Series race at Anderson Speedway on Saturday.

For Shackleford, it was his third victory at Anderson Speedway on Tom Raper RV Night at the Races.

Shackleford used an inside line to take the lead from Michael Hadley Jr. entering Turn 3. On the following four restarts Shackleford used the outside groove to hold off Hadley.

Hadley came home in second, followed by Jeremy Vanderhoof — who recovered from two spins — RJ Norton III and Dennis Whisman.

Fast qualifier and early leader Jacob Garrigus was forced to take evasive action in the cross-over to avoid a slower car and spun in Turn 3, bringing out the first caution flag.

Ben Tunney, a two-time winner at Anderson Speedway, worked his way from the back of the pack to fourth after 16 laps but, just before a restart, headed to the pit area. He returned to action several laps down to the leaders.

The caution flag waved when Vanderhoof spun coming off the second turn and came to a stop on the track on Lap 17 while running fourth.

Garrigus spun a second time on Lap 36 coming out of the second corner after working his way back up to the third position. Vanderhoof brought out the sixth caution with a spin entering Turn 1 while he was running third on Lap 40.

Garrigus’s night came to an end on Lap 42, when he made contact with RJ Norton Jr. approaching Turn 3 and came to rest against the outside retaining wall. It also ended Norton’s chance at a victory.

Jerry Dane climbed from the fourth position to take the lead on Lap 8 from Ron Phipps and went on to record the victory in the Front Wheel Drive Oval Division season opener.
