STRUNK, STOUDT AND LISOWSKI ARE NEW 2015 NASCAR FEATURE WINNERS AT GRANDVIEWGrandview PR
BECHTELSVILLE, PA.?~ The names are familiar, but
none of them had been in victory lane at Grandview Speedway in 2015 until
aid of lapped traffic, defending NASCAR Modified point champion Jeff Strunk
erased Tim Buckwalter?s comfortable lead and closed in on him. The ten time
champion used traffic to his advantage and put the Zubi?s Racing No. 88 in front
on the 20th lap. Strunk later went on to claim his first win of the season in
the T.P. Trailers NASCAR Whelen 358 Modified 30-lap feature and become the sixth
different Modified feature winner of the season. Strunk was feeling under the
weather, but his crew helped pull him through and hopefully the first win of the
season aided the healing process.
Stoudt, the Late Model point champion went out a winner last season when he
announced his retirement. He decided retirement was not for him and returned to

off the No. 10 from last year, started on the pole in the event and led from
start to finish to win his first 25-lap NASCAR BRC Late Model feature of the
season. ?Buddy Mertz almost gave me a heart attack commented Stoudt when he spun
in front of me.? Thankfully there was no contact, but it was an exciting moment.

Sportsman had a new winner when Mike Lisowski finally had a change of luck and
