BECHTELSVILLE, Pa. — Jeff Strunk earned the NASCAR 358 modified feature victory on Tuesday night’s NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill racing program at Grandview Speedway.

Brett Kressley and Mike Gular started on the front row, with Gular gaining control of the top spot.  Gular dominated the first half of the 30-lap event clicking laps off with a strong contingent of Modified drivers behind him.

The top three competitors were door-to-door in the closing portion of the event, with Gular, Kressley, and Strunk all moving to the point in a single lap. Strunk would score the upper hand threading three-wide between Gular and Kressley.

Strunk led the final ten laps of the feature event with Kressley well within striking distance and riding the rear bumper of No. 126 on the final lap.

Kressley rolled home in second, Mike Gular finished in third, Craig VonDohren in fourth, and Duane Howard rounding out the top five.

Christopher Bell won the Pennsylvania Speedweek sprint car race.
