Bechtelsville, Pa. ? Ray Swinehart, a winner of the 50-lap Forrest Rogers memorial/Stauffer Construction NASCAR Dodge Weekly modified feature in ?88 and ?96, overtook race leader Tom Umbenhauer on the 36th lap of the race on Saturday night and went on to chalk up his second win of the season at Grandview Speedway behind the wheel of the PK Moyer/J & L Speed Supplies No. 33. The third victory in the event netted him a $10,000 payday.
It didn?t take Umbenhauer long to open up a commanding lead over his fellow competitors as by the seventh lap he was approaching lap traffic. Chasing him down in the top five were Barry Readinger, Kenny Gilmore, Jimmy Reppert and Shawn Reimert.
The red had to be thrown on the 18th lap when Barry Readinger?s car caught fire. It was a tough break for Readinger since he was running a solid second. Umbenhauer continued his pace on the restart with Gilmore now in a challenging position.
Gilmore, while running second and in pursuit of Umbenhauer, spun in the fourth turn to bring out the yellow on the 22nd lap. The leader continued to be Umbenhauer when action resumed with Reimert, Terry Meitzler, Reppert and Willman in the hunt. Swinehart joined the thick of the battle when he advanced to fourth by the half-way marker and was steadily marching to the front.
Swinehart overtook Reimert for the runner-up spot on the 27th lap and set out after Umbenhauer.
