STRONGSTOWN, PA- Sam Stile of Charleroi won the late model mid season championship at Dog Hollow Speedway, while Al Zuccolotto of Johnstown did the same in the super stock division. Williamsburgs Jerry Lower and Gallitzen’s Steve Diehl won the street stock and pure stock mains respectively Friday night.

Point leader Tony Raneri and runner-up Sam Stile brought the 24 car late model down to the start, with Stile immediately taking the lead. Raneri had handling problems and began to fade, with Stile opening up a nice lead. Jason Carnahan, the Rodney Phillips, Duane Stiner, and eventually John Britsky hounded the leader, but no one could muster up the power needed to get by the eventual winner. Stile went on to get his third win of the season, with Britsky, Phillips, Carnahan, and Rick Davis rounding out the top five. Jerry Redden, Bub McClelland, and Jason Carnahan won the qualifying heats, while Ken Shaltenbrand won the B-main.

Denny Petyak and Al Zuccolotto led the super stock field down to the green flag, with Petyak taking the lead, and trying to keep Zuccolotto at bay. While working the tenth lap, Zuccolotto tried the inside lane on Petyak, and took the lead entering the backstretch. While Zuccolotto may have led to the finish, Petyak did not give up without a fight, and hounded Zuccolotto the rest of the way. The win was Zuccolotto’s fourth of the season. The top five were: Zuccolotto, Petyak, Shawn "Sheets" McGarvey, Mike Shoemaker, and Rick Lias. Denny Petyak and Yvette Hahn won the heats.

The street stock feature was led to the start by J.R. Rowe and Dan Pfluger, with Rowe taking the lead, and setting the early pace. He held of Dave Kephart before his engine expired, and he was out for the night. This gave Kephart the lead, and he led until lap ten, when Jerry Lower took to the inside and took the lead. Once out front, Lower was on a rail, and took his 7th win of the season. Kephart was second, with Bill Lyons, Jeff Enos, and Brian Helsley completing the top five. Qualifying heats were won by Jerry Lower, Jeff Enos, Tony Fama, and Dave Kephart. Harold Reges won the consolation race.

Tom Alexander beat fellow front row starter Henry Wilfong into the first turn at the start of the pure stock feature, and led until lap six, when Bill Sigafoes took the low road, and the lead. He held the top spot until lap 13, when it was Steve Diehl who took the lead, and eventual win, he had to hold of Darren Desch to do so. The top five were: Diehl, Daren Desch, Brian Parsley, Alexander, and Amy Hawk. Daren Desch and Amy Hawk won the heats.
