WAUSEON, OH (July 14) — Zack Dohm of Cross Lanes, WV., settled into second place at the start of Saturday night’s 20th annual Birthday Race at Oakshade Raceway and, with the 3/8-mile oval’s surface already taking rubber along the inside groove, thought there was a good chance he would stay there for the duration of the 60-lap feature.

Zack Dohm Takes First Career Tour Win at Oakshade


WAUSEON, OH (July 13) — Oakshade Raceway clearly fits Zack Dohm’s style to perfection.


With the 3/8-mile oval’s slick-surface reputation prompting him to make the six-hour haul from Cross Lanes, WV, to compete at the track located outside Toledo, Dohm enjoyed a triumphant debut. He overtook six-time Oakshade champion Rusty Schlenk of McClure, OH, for the lead on lap 29 and held on to register a $5,000 victory in Friday night’s 40-lap DIRTcar Summer Nationals feature that kicked off the facility’s 20th annual Birthday Race weekend.
