Westminster's Gary Stuhler ran out of track before he could close in on Denny Bonebrake in the Hoosier Tire late-model 25-lap feature at Hagerstown Speedway on April 17.

Stuhler had won his heat and fought his way through the pack to close within three seconds of Bonebrake in the last lap, but couldn't make up the distance.

Despite the second-place finish, Stuhler leads in the track's point standings with 2,000.

Hampstead's Charlie Schaffer also made a late charge in the late-model feature at Winchester Speedway last Sunday. He finished sixth.

Schaffer was also eighth in the late model at Potomac Speedway last week after winning his heat.

Cris Eash, formerly of Woodbine and now living in Hanover, was second in the sprint car feature race at Lincoln Speedway on April 17.

Eash had won his heat, and his brother Darren of Westminster won the consolation round. Manchester's Jesse Wentz was third in his heat and 10th in the feature race.

In the semi-lates at Lincoln, Westminster's Randy Zechman was fifth in feature and sixth in the heat.

Corky Stull of Westminster was seventh in the thunder car

feature and third in the heat.

At the 75-80 Dragway last Sunday, Ted Eaton of Mount Airy won Class I.

Westminster's George Hoff continued his winning streak in the Class II, and Larry Hoff advanced to the semifinals.

Dave Belt of Taneytown won the motorcycle class by defeating Westminster's Mark Hoff in the final round. Michael Ford of Westminster won the New Jr. Dragster Class.

Reuben Standifer and Sev Tingle, both of Mount Airy, were Class I quarterfinalists. Tom Humm of Taneytown was a Class II quarterfinalist.
