Craig VonDohren and Jeff Strunk had a tooth and nail
battle going on to decide the outcome of the 30-lap NASCAR Whelen All-American
Series 358 Modified feature. VonDohren ?tried to switch things up ? the lanes of
the track he ran to confuse Strunk,? but that didn?t outsmart Strunk, the
current point leader and he stayed right with Von Dohren using lapped cars to
try to gain the lead to score back-to-back wins.

Despite losing the lead slightly as the pair
encountered lap traffic, Von Dohren was always in front when it counted.
VonDohren, the Oley leadfoot, kept Strunk behind him and went on to score his
third win of the season on the one-third-mile, banked clay
oval.

In the BRC Late Model Firecracker 40-lap event, Randy
Stoudt literally ran away and hid as he appeared to be making a statement and
lapped all of the nine finishing cars, but second and third place finishers Sean
Merkel and Lou Egrie. Stoudt, the current point leader, returned to action this
season driving the Taylor White/Wanda Brown-owned No. 10 and captured his sixth
Firecracker event.

In the 25-lap NASCAR Sportsman feature lapped traffic
worked to Jared Umbenhauer?s advantage when Mike Lisowski got trapped behind a
slower car with two laps to go. Umbenhauer took over first and went on to chalk
up his seventh win behind the wheel of the Barry Bashore No. 5 and receive an
additional $100 from T.P. Trailers..
