1990...A new decade came in and with it came a wild finish in the Nationals, with even a wilder winner. Doug Saunier dominated the event but spun with only a handful of laps remaining in the event handing the lead to Gary Morton. With just a couple of ticks remaining, Mort's wing mounts broke, giving it a c0ckeyed look. New Englander, Bobby Fitzpatrick ceased the opportunity to get by Morton and went on for the win. Bobby was the first Star Speedway (N.H.) regular runner to get the big Nationals win. Friday Night Winner: Gary Griffith (his lone ISMA win)

1992...Young Pat Abold had found the right combination this year and was strong at every race he ran. Only Dave Shullick had anything for Abold as he led most of the race. However the 150 lap distance proved too long for Shullick (and everyone else!) as his motor gave out on lap 100 while leading. Abold got by and a lap later Shullick was pitside. Abold went unchallenged afterward to get the win. Once Again Bentley Warren proved his consistency in the event nabbing a second place. Another consistent runner, Joe Gosek was third.

1993...Doug Saunier has been close to winning the Hy-Miler Nationals more than once, and last year it appeared to be the one. Saunier and Dave Shullick dominated the weekly racing at Sandusky and were poised on the front of the 150 Hy-Miler grind. Saunier lead from the Outset, with Shullick in tow. "The Shoe" made a couple of bids for the lead but rode a comfortable distance behind in second. As the race wore on, it became evident these two Titans would battle for the win as they had all year. Late in the going it appeared that Saunier would not be denied, but a late race caution changed everything. Shullick made the decision to pit for new rubber and join the field at the tail. With Shullick on stickers and the field on worn out rubber, he quickly made mincemeat of the remaining cars to grab a fourth and unprecedented win. Saunier held on to second after seeing his eminent victory disappear. Once again Joe Gosek found himself on the podium at the races end. Mike Muldoon and Pat Abold closed out the top five.

1994...Jim Shirey had been campaigning supermodifieds for almost ten years and in 1994 he got his break. Teaming up with veteran builder/mechanic Jim Bodnar, Shirey captured the lucrative Hy Miler Nationals. Shirey passed Doug Saunier in the early going and drove away from the field. Gary Allbritain grabbed a ride with New Englandís Witkum team and finished a distant second. Bentley Warren, Russ Wood and Dave Simard rounded out the top five. Friday Night Winner: Mike Ordway
