Cole Duncan steals lead late for Waynesfield All Star/FAST Series victory

WAYNESFIELD, Ohio (August 21, 2021) - A last minute schedule change that led the FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 from northern Indiana to Waynesfield Raceway Park proved to be a valuable move for Lockbourne, Ohio’s Cole Duncan, ultimately stealing the show on Saturday night to score a $5,000 payday, as well as his second Series victory of the 2021 season.
Duncan, who started fifth on the All Star/FAST Series co-sanctioned grid, utilized the slow and steady approach around Waynesfield’s high-banked oval, steadily climbing his way through the top-five before taking command from Rudeen Racing’s Cory Eliason on lap 27. The middle groove served as Duncan’s stomping ground for much of the 30-lap contest, eventually securing a sixth-career All Star victory; a first-ever at Waynesfield Raceway Park.
Cory Eliason, the Friday night winner at I-96 Speedway, held on to finish second after leading laps four through 26, followed by Justin Peck, Spencer Bayston, and Cap Henry.

“Shane Helms gave us one hell of a race track tonight. I don’t think you can ask for much better than that,” Cole Duncan said in victory lane, pilot of the Ohio Heating, Helms Construction, Motor City Transport, No. 22 sprint car. “When the track got slick, we threw the wing back and the car got to working good...I could carry speed into the corner. They were throwing crumbs off the bottom and I could use those for traction.”

Utilizing the pole position by way of dash result, Cap Henry earned the early command, leading the first three laps before losing control to Eliason the following circuit. Tyler Courtney, a runner-up to Eliason one night prior, also found a way to power by Henry and secured the second spot with six in the books. Not settling for second, Courtney’s next objective was to get by Eliason’s No. 26, showing his nose on a few occasions before traffic entered the picture for the first time on lap 10. Despite Eliason’s ability to maneuver the early traffic flow, Courtney stayed tight, keeping the gap within a few car lengths.
When caution flags waved on lap 15, it would seem that clean air would play into Eliason’s favor and allow the Visalia, California-native to sail off unchallenged, but meanwhile, Duncan was just getting started. The ensuing restart would allow Duncan to bump ahead to fourth, eventually tracking down Angola, Indiana’s Zeb Wise for third on lap 19. By lap 21, Duncan was all over Tyler Courtney for second, taking the position, officially, on lap 21. Traffic would enter the picture yet again on lap 24, but to Eliason’s dismay, Duncan maintained momentum and gained ground quickly.
The main event’s final caution on lap 26 would set the stage for Duncan’s soon to be takeover, stealing the spotlight from Eliason the very next lap.
“I think the only thing that was going to screw me up before that last restart was traffic,” Duncan continued. “Traffic was kind of running down where I wanted to be. (Eliason) got a hell of a all worked out and I couldn’t be more proud.”
The FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will continue their 2021 campaign with a four-race sweep through the heart of Pennsylvania Posse Country. Grandview Speedway, nestled in the hills just northwest of Philadelphia, will activate the weekend on Thursday, August 26. The four-day schedule will move to Williams Grove Speedway on Friday, August 27, followed by back-to-back nights of competition at Lincoln Speedway and BAPS Motor Speedway on Saturday and Sunday, August 28-29. Weekend highlights include twin 20-lappers at The Grove awarding $4,000 each, as well as Lincoln Speedway’s Kramer Klash awarding $7,300.
