Westminster's Gary Stuhler has returned to his successful ways from the '92 season. Stuhler was third in Motor notebook

the late-model feature race at Hagerstown Speedway on March 6.

With five laps to go in the 20-lap feature, Stuhler was in a four-way battle for the lead. Stuhler had been neck and neck for third place with Nathan Durboraw of Hagerstown.
