Bechtelsville, Pa. ? Last weekend at Grandview Speedway many felt that defending point champion Jeff Strunk had an advantage in his win because he started fifth since at the time he hadn?t accumulated many points. This Saturday night Strunk started 16th in the 33-car grid, was in the lead by the 18th lap and then held off the continuous hard charges of runner-up Jon Kellner. Strunk just beat Kellner by half a car length to score back-to-back victories in the 30-lap NASCAR Dodge Weekly Racing Series modified feature sponsored by Norris Mechanical Contracting and Checkered Flag Fan Club. Last week it was Jon Kellner Jr. that chased Strunk across the line and this time it was his father that narrowly missed out on another win.
Tschudy stopped in the third turn for the next yellow on lap 16. Marburger erased the restart as he stopped in the fourth turn and had to be pushed into the infield out of action for the night. On the restart Strunk outgunned Hartnett to change the lead for the third time with the top five now comprised of Hartnett, Kellner, Watt and Kerry
