Waiting Game Pays Off For Union Bridge Drag Racer

July 10, 1991|By Staff report

Patience was the key of the holiday weekend at 75-80 Dragway in Monrovia, Frederick County, and Union Bridge's Mike Stambaugh was more than willing to wait until Saturday to capture the Class II contest in his Fairmont.

After rain washed out most of Thursday's and Friday's action, Stambaugh came up big on Saturday to edge out Roger Jorss of Sykesville as the two Carroll countians split the first- and second-place money.

In other weekend action:

* Westminster's Gary Stuhler capturedhis second straight 20-lap late-model feature Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa.

Hampstead's Charlie Shaffer settled for third in the event.

* Stuhler settled for second in the annual Lee Tultz Memorial at Winchester (Va.) Speedway Saturday. He started 12th in the 40-lap main event but used an inside move to pass Denny Bonebrake for first place. Eventual winner Nathan Durboraw took second from Bonebrake on lap 26, took the lead from Stuhler six laps later and never looked back.
