The 46th edition of the Stock Car Stampede concluded Saturday afternoon at Jamestown Speedway with a near-capacity crowd on hand. Coming into the night, Dustin Strand had won the previous two Stampede championships in the late model division. By the end of the night he added a third Stampede win to his already impressive résumé, but it came behind the wheel of his IMCA modified.
Despite cool, windy conditions, the Jamestown Speedway faithful came out in droves for the 46th annual Stock Car Stampede. Race fans were treated to 270 cars for the first of two nights of racing at the high-banked quarter-mile clay oval. John Corell Sr. put on one of the most impressive drives early in the night. The Jamestown driver started sixth on the grid for IMCA modified heat race No. 2 and quickly raced into the lead. "I just never lifted," said Correll after the race. "I ran it wide open and the car felt great."
