“Keith Jackson Wins 36th Annual Lee Stultz Memorial”
“Tommy Armel Wins The Crate Late Model Feature”
By Brent Hottle
Winchester(VA)-It was time for the super late models to invade the Winchester Speedway once
again for the running of the 36th Annual Lee Stultz Memorial. We would also see the crate late
model, pure stock, SCDRA and Tri-State Vintage Series cars compete on this night. The vintage
cars would compete in two separate feature events. The first one being a make-up feature from
the Jr Boone Memorial night. We would see plenty of side by side action in the heat race events.
The super late models would also hold a climb to the pole event which we would see Kenny
Moreland win, earning him the pole starting position for the main event. Once our invocation and
playing of the National Anthem was complete, it would be time for our feature events.
First to compete on the speedway would be the make up feature for the vintage series. Outside
pole sitter Bill Coada would grab the early lead. Walter Crouch would run second and begin to
look for a way around the leader on lap ten. Crouch would look high and low, but just couldn’t
find the momentum needed to pull alongside Coada and make a pass. Slight contact would
send Coada spinning in turn four. Andrew Fetig would get the win, followed by Chris Bohrer and
Tony Catlett.
Next to pull out onto the speedway would be the crate late model division. Veteran Tommy
Armel would start on the outside pole and take the early lead. Mike Franklin and Davin Kaiser
would begin to chase the leader. The only caution of the twenty lap event would come out on lap
five as Randy Wilkins would spin in turn two. Armel would show his strength as he led the field
at the restart and began to pull away. Kaiser would get around Franklin after the restart and the
pair would battle for the second position for several laps. Franklin would take back the second
position from Kaiser on lap fourteen. However, by this time Armel would have a three quarter of
a straight away lead over the field. Tommy Armel would go on to take the win a full straight away
ahead of Mike Franklin. Davin Kaiser would round out the top three.
The pure stock feature would be next on the schedule. The caution would come out right after
the feature got started. Buddy Wilson would pull into the infield for his crew to service his car.
This would cause him to restart the race in the last position instead of the outside pole position
he was originally scheduled to start. Crouch would take the lead ahead of Jerry Jenkins Jr and
Michael Carter. Crouch would begin to slowly pull away from the field, as he would be a half of a
straight away ahead of Jenkins by lap six. Buddy Wilson would quickly make his way through
the field as he was up to third by the end of lap six. Wilson would battle Jenkins for several laps
and would take over the second position by lap eleven. He would set his sight on leader Walter
Crouch, who was almost a full straight away ahead. Wilson would begin to cut into Crouch’s
lead lap after lap. Time would run out for Wilson before he could catch up to the leader, but not
before cutting the lead down to two car lengths. Walter Crouch would take the win, followed by
Buddy Wilson and Jerry Jenkins Jr.
It was now time for the running of the Thirty-Sixth Annual Lee Stultz Memorial. Kenny Moreland
and Keith Jackson would make up the front row. Jackson would lead the field into turn one at
the drop of the green flag. He would begin to pull away from Moreland who was currently
running second. By the halfway point in the thirty lap event, Moreland would catch back up to
Jackson and pull up to his rear bumper. On lap eighteen we would see Moreland look high for a
way around the leader. Moreland couldn’t find the momentum needed to make the pass. This
would allow Jackson to pull away slightly. Keith Jackson would go on to win the thirty lap event.
Kenny Moreland and Tyler Hershey would round out the top three. However, the top six cars
were almost all nose to tail by the end of the feature event. Jonathan DeHaven came home
fourth after starting ninth.
In the SCDRA feature we would see Wayne Selby take the early lead from his pole starting
position, followed by Tyler Kline and Shawn Payne. Tiff Wilson would spin in turn two bringing
out the caution just after the field completed the first lap. Payne would get a great restart and
battle Selby for the lead. Payne would complete the pass for the lead on lap three. On lap five
Zach Karns would slide way high and hit the outside wall coming out of turn one. This would
cause his car to turn straight towards the inside wall. Unfortunately Brody Tolstyka would be in
the wrong place at the wrong time, as Karns car would collide with the rear of Tolstyka’s car
taking the both out of the event. Payne would continue to lead after the restart as Wayne Selby
and Lonnie Hobday battled back and forth for the second position. Two separate late race
cautions for Stephen Suite couldn’t stop Payne’s bid for a win. Shawn Payne would go on to win
the fifteen lap event. Wayne Selby and Lonnie Hobday would round out the top three.
The final event of the night would be the second feature for the vintage cars. Chris Bohrer would
take the early lead, ahead of Andrew Fertig and Walter Crouch. Bohrer would lead all fifteen
laps and take the win. A late race pass would earn Walter Crouch the second position. Andrew
Fertig would round out the top three.
We want to thank everyone who attended last night's events. A big thank you to all of our track
crew for all of their hard work. And also to Mr Greg Gunter for giving us a place to enjoy our
favorite sport. I’m happy to make two special announcements. The first being, new PA
equipment has arrived and is beginning to be swapped out for the old. We hope to have
everything updated very soon. The second announcement is after speaking with Mr David Stultz
last night, he has confirmed there will be a 37th running of the Lee Stultz Memorial!
