It wasn't a lot of room, but then Gary Stuhler doesn't need much.

After being frustrated in attempts to pass Booper Bare in the first round of the Tri-State Late Model Championship series at Potomac Speedway on the high side of the track, Westminster resident Stuhler got just enough room on the inside.

The result after taking the lead on lap 30 of the 40-lap feature was the second win for Stuhler at Potomac this season.

Hampstead's Charlie Schaffer was 15th in the same race last Friday night.

Former Finksburg residents Cris and Darren Eash also had busy weekends.

The brothers competed at the Hagerstown Speedway's 30-lap Skoal-Copenhagen World of Outlaw Shootout. Cris was 20th in the time trials and 21st in the feature, and Darren was 13th in the trials and 23rd in the feature.

Darren Eash was seventh in the sprint car feature race and third in his heat at Lincoln Speedway last Friday night.

Cork Stull of Westminster was sixth in the Thundercar feature race.

At 75-80 Dragway last Saturday, Scott Lowman of Woodbine won the Class II competition and Dave Belt of Taneytown won the Motorcycle Class. Last Saturday, Joe Mayne of Mount Airy was runner-up in the Class I competition and Larry Mayne was runner-up last Sunday.

Westminster resident Dan Wall was runner-up in the ETK Class and Dale Parrish in the Burnout contest.

Malcolm Ford of Westminster was a runner-up in motorcycles.

Quarterfinalists in the Class I were Ronnie Carroll of Sykesville and Dave Buete of Mount Airy. In Class II, Jim Peddicord of Westminster was a quarterfinalist.
