Hagerstown Speedway

Starting second with a six-car invert, Gary Stuhler led all 40 laps to capture the victory in the first Red Nininger Memorial for the Cindy Rowe Auto Glass late models at Hagerstown Speedway on Saturday night.  

Stuhler of Greencastle, Pa., was in command of the race from the start with late model sportsman driver Tyler Armstrong doing double duty and giving chase from the third lap. Stuhler's racer began smoking on the final lap, but he held on for his second win of the season -- and 125th of his career -- by .81 seconds over Armstrong.

Jerry Bard of Shippensburg, Pa., won the Maryland Clash, the combined Allegany County/Hagerstown event for the Hoosier Tire Mid Atlantic late model sportsman.


Kenny Dillon of Hanover, Pa., was the winner of the 13th annual Jim Cornett Tribute for the Ernie's Auto Enterprises pure stocks for the third time.

Matt Smith of Carlisle, Pa., added his name to the Enduro Dash winners after he took the lead from Larry Hurley Jr. on the 17th lap and pulled out to a 1.7-second lead at the end over Mark Vegh.
