Super Late Model driver Sean Woodside had it all figured out. Since they were racing on his turf, it was his race to win. Woodside made all the right calculations Saturday night, going wire to wire in the 50-lap main event for his fourth feature victory of the season at Saugus Raceway. However, the race wasn't easy for the Saugus driver, who received stiff competition from Ray Hooper Jr. and Nick Joanides.

The Sports Illustrated cover jinx has nothing on this space. The unpredictable nature of racing is one of the primary reasons we find it to be the most exciting sport of all, except we conveniently forgot motorsports are unpredictable when we tried to forecast the second half of the season Aug. 9. To say we dropped the ball is an understatement. Our predictions about Sean Woodside of Saugus, former Palmdale resident Ron Hornaday Jr.

Sean Woodside of Saugus is facing a double-edged sword in the Coca-Cola 500 NASCAR Winston West series race when the green flag drops at 7:30 PST on Friday at Twin Ring Motegi, Japan. Woodside must finish 28th or better to clinch his first Winston West championship after finishing second his first two years in the series, which would dictate a conservative strategy.

When Saugus Speedway abruptly closed just over a year ago, Sean Woodside found himself in a peculiar situation. He no longer had a home to showcase his talents. Woodside was leading the Super Late Model division at Saugus when the speedway closed in July of 1995. Like many other dislocated drivers, he was forced to scramble and find a new racing venue. The answer for Woodside, who lives in Saugus, is 100 miles north at Mesa Marin Raceway in Bakersfield.

After reviewing tapes of the Grand American modified main event Saturday night at Irwindale Speedway, NASCAR officials declared Dean Kuhn of Oceanside the winner in a Dodge, reversing their earlier decision that Rip Michels of Mission Hills was the winner in a Chevrolet. The race ended in confusion as Michels, while leading, had his engine expire, bringing out a caution flag. Kuhn assumed the lead, but almost immediately the race was stopped because of time limitations.

Four of six Winston West races this year have been won by outsiders from other NASCAR series and tonight's $107,000 Irwindale 250 at Irwindale Speedway may follow that pattern. Mike Wallace, a former Winston Cup driver who is a regular on the Craftsman Truck series, will be in the same Ford that he won with in Phoenix and Pikes Peak. Ron Hornaday Jr., a familiar name to Southern California fans from his days at Saugus Speedway, is the Craftsman Truck series champion.
