Rob Liaeff Wins $1,000 Enduro
Race fans were greeted to a warm and sunny Sunday afternoon 200-lap enduro race at Oakshade Raceway that was won by Rob Liaeff.
Shawn Stamm from Archbold, Ohio, set a blistering pace early and led the first hundred laps of the event. Unfortunately for Stamm, mechanical issues would force him to the pits for an extended stay. Jim Sayler also succumbed to mechanical issues after running second the for quarter of the race.
By lap 125, Rob Liaeff took command of the race and soldiered on to the finish. He managed to keep his car out of trouble avoiding other drivers and debris, and he made his equipment last to the end to earn the $1,000 for the victory. Brad Gilbert finished second followed by last year’s Oakshade enduro series champion, Chris Williams. Chris Osborn was fourth and Neil Shaw survived to finish fifth.
The next 200-lap/2 hour enduro race at Oakshade Raceway is scheduled for Sunday, September 19, 2010.
