Stuebner on hot streak
It was quite a weekend for Cory Stuebner.
The motorcyclist from Hamburg, Pa., took full advantage of Maple Grove Raceway’s doubleheader weekend to win twice on the Sunoco Race Fuels Money Trail.
The wins were his second and third of the season, and gave him a little cushion in the early season points race.
He beat Danny Boyer (York, Pa.) for a second day in a row on Sunday. This time Boyer fouled at the start. To get to the final this time, Stuebner beat Keith Alesin (Mohnton, Pa.) in the quarters with a better run of 9.133 at 125.06, and then advanced through the semis when Gockley fouled.
Boyer used a better reaction time to get past Lisa Alesin (Sinking Spring, Pa.) in the quarters, and then advanced when Dempsey fouled in the semis.
Another repeat winner on Sunday was Paul Werner (Sinking Spring, Pa.) in P.C. Richard & Son Street. He took his second win of the season in his 1980 Malibu station wagon by defeating Scott Smith (Birdsboro, Pa.) with a great reaction time of .007 that helped him survive a double-breakout pass.
Werner had a bye in the semis and beat David Sciarretta (Honey Brook, Pa.) in the quarterfinals, getting the win light in another double-breakout. On the other hand, Smith had a bye in the quarters before going .004 over his dial-in in the semis against Jake Knarr (Boyertown, Pa.).
Yet another return visitor to PPC Lubricants Victory Lane was Brock Moshier (Lititz, Pa.) in Ciccarone Racing Products Pro. This was his second win in Pro – and third overall with a win in Super – as he beat Andy Anderson (York, Pa.), who was also looking for his second win of the season.
Moshier and his ’71 Vega won the final with a .017 reaction time and a pass of 9.036 at 145.33 that was .016 over his dial-in.
To get to the final, Moshier had a single in the quarters and then got to the final when Todd Thoman (York, Pa.) got a red light. Anderson had a bye in the semis, and beat Robert Rippel (Fawn Grove, Pa.) in the quarters, taking advantage of a perfect light at the start.
In Gold Rush Trailers Super, Alan Robinson (Honey Brooke, Pa.) was victorious in his dragster and Brian Bensinger (West Reading, Pa.) had to settle for runner-up a second day in a row after a double-breakout run.
Robinson got the win light as he was only .013 under his dial-in and Bensinger was .038. Robinson had a bye in the semis and beat Mike Barber (Douglassville, Pa.) in the quarters by going .037 over his dial. Meanwhile, Bensinger earned a bye in the semis after Shayne Beck (Narvon, Pa.) fouled in the quarters.
Skyler Stump (Mechanicsburg, Pa.) won her first race in Junior Dragster by going .061 over his dial-in to beat Deja Brown (York, Pa.), who was .087 over. Stump faced competition in both the quarter and semifinals. She beat Eddie McBride (Glenolden, Pa.) in the quarters by going .004 over the dial, then beat Hollie Ray-Bausher (Shillington, Pa.) in the semis by going .010 over. Brown had a bye in the semis and beat Kelli Witkowski (Elverson, Pa.) in the quarters.
Bob Keffer (Maple Grove, Pa.) won the Trophy race.
