Hans Stamberg won for the fourth time this season by winning a race he coveted.

The Hedgesville, W.Va., resident came back from an early spinout on Saturday to win the 14th annual Cornett Tribute, a double points event for pure stocks, at Hagerstown Speedway.

"I've been wanting to win this race for a long time," Stamberg said. "It just never worked out. It was hard work winning this one."

Stamberg recovered from his spin on the eighth lap to regain the lead for good on the 11th lap. Mike Warrenfeltz, who won the Cornett race in 2002, stayed on Stamberg's bumper for the last seven laps and two restarts, but lost out in the end by .78 seconds.

Anderson held off Devin Friese to win by .88 seconds.

The speedway will be the featured stop on the 19th annual Pennsylvania Sprint Car Speedweek on Wednesday, the fourth program in the eight-race schedule. The Eastern Museum of Motor Racing will join the program with vintage racers.
