Oval HAGERSTOWN - Johnson captures Quaker State Hub-City 150. Davey Johnson of Imperial, Pc. showed why he is the leading late model feature winner in the area by winning the Quaker State Hub-City 150 at the Hagerstown Speedway Sunday afternoon. After being postponed due to rain for three consecutive weeks, the 14th running of the Hub-City is finally in the record books with Johnson the first driver to win the event back-to-back. The win was worth $10,320 for Johnson including $2,320 in lap money. Running a smooth methodical race in the Ray Callahan Bullitt Chassis/Gaerte Engine/Hoosier Tire/Phils Towing Special, Johnson picked off cars at a slow pace after starting the chase in 14th spot. Johnson broke into the top five on the 14th tour and worked his way to second by the 23rd lap. Johnson gained the lead from Buddy Arrnel right before the first fuel stop on lap 49 and led the rest of the way in the most exciting Hub-City event in its 14 year history. "Everything worked just great," said Johnson in victory lane. "The track was super smooth and it just kept getting faster and faster." Butch McGill of West Union, WV grabbed the early lead from his pole starting spot and led the first 20 laps as a fierce battle three and four wide between Mike Balzano, Buddy Armel, Rodney Franklin and Cubb Frank was taking place. On lap 15, Davey Johnson joined the battle as Balzano and Armel began to preeeeeeeeessure McGill for the lead. Armel gained the lead on lap 21 and three laps later Johnson was in the runner-up spot as Balzano, Franklin, McGill continued their battle. Four laps later, Balzano pulled even with Johnson and regained second on the next time around. On lap 34, Armel, Balzano, Johnson and Franklin were four abreast fighting for the lead. Armel held onto the top spot, but Johnson was back in second on lap 37 only to have Balzano take it back on the next circuit. Johnson came right back two laps later for second and began his chase for Armel. With two laps remaining before the first fuel stop, Johnson began to pressure Armel and on lap 49, Johnson was in the lead. Johnson controlled the second 50-lap segment, but the battle for second on back was exciting as the first third of the race. After going to the rear two times for pit stops in the first 50-laps, Gary Stuhler moved into the top five on lap 51 to battle with Balzano, Armel and Franklin. The four drivers battl- ed each other as if it was the final lap with Armel holding second, Balzano third, Stuhler fourth and Franklin fifth. The four drivers never let up as they fought each other for the runner- up spot and the opportunity to try to catch Johnson who began to open some daylight over the rest of the field. On lap 70, Tom Peck joined in and all five drivers were even going down the backstretch five wide. For the next five laps, Armel and Balzano were even for second and Stuhler and Peck were side-by-side right behind. By lap 80, they were back in single file with Armel still holding onto second. On lap 85 Stuhler began to make his move as he worked his way into third and on lap 92 he was around Armel for second. But once in second, Stuhler had his work cut out for him as Johnson had opened a five second lead which he held until the red flag was waved for the second fuel stop on lap 100. With lapped cars in the field on the restart, Johnson was able to open a 2.5 second lead by the time that Stuhler cleared the traffic on lap 119. A cau- tion with 10 laps remaining wiped out Johnson's three second lead and gave Stuhler one last chance. Johnson pro- ved to be too much as he cruised home two seconds in front of Stuhler. Following Stuhler was Peck who started 13th with Balzano finishing fourth after running in the top five the entire race. Fifth went to Franklin with Jeff Robinson sixth and Buddy Armel seventh. Rodney Combs was eighth one lap down with McGill and Chuck Teets rounding out the top ten two laps down. Taking the lead on the eighth lap, Lynn Geisler of Compolis, Pc., won the 25-lap Teddy Marketing/Hamill Enterprises Race of Champions. Representing the Pennsylvania Motor Speedway, Geisler started seventh and won by two seconds over Chub Frank. Geisler picked up $1,840 for the win. Burch McGill, Ben Miley and Nathan Durboraw rounded out the top five. In the hard fought battle, track champion Wayne Walls of St. Thomas, Pc. edged Les Hare in the 30-1ap cham- pionship race for the limited late models. It was Walls' 10th win of the season. Hare led from the drop of the green as Walls worked his way from his 10th starting spot to second by the fifth lap. Walls stayed on Hare's bumper until lap 19 when he gained the upper hand and led the rest of the way holding off a last lap challenge by Hare at the end. Third through fifth were Marvin Winters, Nathan Durboraw and Robby Garlock. Brad Omps of Winchester, Va. won the 20-lap Roadrunner feature. Gifts of Fun 8, Fitness...
