Area drivers scored two victories at one track last weekend Corky Stull of Westminster got his first career win in the thundercar division, and Cris Eash, formerly of Woodbine, won the sprint car championship at Lincoln Speedway.
"Davey Brown had this car running perfect tonight and everything went our way," said Eash, who lives in Hanover, Pa.
Eash, who had won his heat, passed race leader Steve Rucker on the 17th lap and led the rest of the way. His brother, Darren, was ninth in the 25-lap feature.
Stull took advantage of a faltering Jeremy Miller on the homestretch for his first feature win.
Jesse Wentz of Manchester flipped his car in the sprint car heat, and Jeff Shepard of Finksburg did not finish in the same heat. Despite his accident, Wentz is ninth in the unofficial point standings with 970 points.
Randy Zechman of Westminster did better in the heat for semi-lates, finishing second, but was unable to complete the feature race. In the unofficial standings, Zechman is 10th with 1,190 points.
The weather postponed most of the area races last Sunday, but the 75-80 Dragway had a record broken with Rod Saboury of Millers posting an 8.42 seconds for the quarter-mile in 170 mph. Saboury's Corvette is one of the 10 fastest street cars in the nation.
Jeff Davis and Rick Holland, both of Westminster, made it to the semifinals in the Top 16 Fastest Street Cars at 75-80 mph.
