The A main would be 40 laps and the first 4 rows were lined up with Tim Shaffer on the pole and Kofoid on the outside. In row 2 we had Duncan and Paulker with Haudenschild and Kekich in row 3 and Chris Andrews and Dale Blaney in row 4.
At the start Kofoid grabbed the lead and worked to open up a good advantage over 2nd running Shaffer. On lap 3 a yellow comes out for Chance Morton. The order was Kofoid, Shaffer, Paulker, Duncan, Kekech, Haud and Blaney. On lap 4 Andrews flips it in turn 3 bringing out a red. After racing resumed, Kofoid got a good lead again until a lap 9 caution for a spinning Morton. The order is Kofoid, Shaffer, Duncan, Paulker and Blaney. Racing resumes until lap 14 for another yellow. The running order is the same except Blaney has now gotten around Paulker for 4th. On the restart Kofoid leads the field but this time, Shaffer stays close to Buddy and on lap 16 Shaffer works around the young California driver and takes the lead. Paulker and Haudenschild touch and get tangled up in turn 3 but keep going. Then another yellow on lap 17 and that turns into a red for refueling. We can’t seem to get many racing laps in….before a yellow flies! After the restart, the race goes green until a lap 23 caution for Philo. The running order is Shaffer, Kofoid, Duncan, Blaney, Paulker, Kekich and Haud. The race then goes green all the way to the checkers with Shaffer taking the win, followed by Kofoid, Duncan, Blaney and Paulker.
Kofoid looked like he would run away with it at first but Shaffer would bide his time and figure out a plan and then he made his move…just like the seasoned pro he is. Shaffer is amazing and having a great year. After Shaffer grabbed the lead, Duncan and Kofoid battled for the 2nd position the rest of the way with Blaney lurking behind them but not able to get up close to make a pass. Paulker held on to 5th after damaging a front wing. This was a really good show and a great way for Fremont to end the racing season.
Thank you Fremont Speedway and congrats to Tim Shaffer on the win. A congratulations also goes out to Craig Mintz for winning this year’s 410 FAST championship.
