BECHTELSVILLE, Pa. – Nathan Mohr overcame a few bad restarts to win the 40-lap NASCAR Sportsman feature on Saturday night at Grandview Speedway.
Mohr, a recent graduate of Upper Perkiomen High School, lost the lead twice during the running of the Summer Splash 40-lap NASCAR Sportsman feature on Saturday night at Grandview Speedway, but through the aid of restarts he jumped back into first.
Mohr then proceeded to hold off the hard charges of Gary Wagner until the challenger was sidelined by tire issues, and then with two laps to go Mike Lisowski was on his bumper. Not knowing how close challenger Lisowski actually was, he held his pace and went on to pull the Mohr-family owned No. 17M into victory lane for his first career win and it was worth $1,500.
The T.P Trailers 30-lap NASCAR Modified feature had its second repeat winner when Jeff Strunk, who recently won on June 9, survived a one-lap shoot out and was able to keep Mike Gular, who is currently at the top of the point race, behind to go on to record his 69th Saturday night triumph. Gular also chased Strunk across the line during Strunk’s previous win.
Kyle Merkel, who returned to Late Model action a few years ago after being on other racing ventures, led the 25-lap NASCAR Late Model feature from start to finish to park the Dave “Crazy” Yost owned No. 26 mount in the winner’s circle. Merkel had been shut out of the win column since April 20, 2013.
