GRUNDY, VA :: Champagne was pouring in victory lane on Saturday night when Rockin’ Ryan Stiltner was crowned as the 2013 Lonesome Pine Raceway track championship after his fourth place finish in the Late Model season finale.  This championship is Stiltner’s first Late Model championship.

“It feels really good to win this,” Stiltner said.  “It took us three years to finally get one.  I’m just really happy tonight to finally win this championship.  We didn’t have that great of a race finish.  We had problems with the caliper sticking but I’m glad we got to finish this deal.

“It’s been a blessing to have this opportunity.  I just can’t thank everyone enough, my sponsors, my grandpa, my father, Jay Hedgecock, Don Kowalsky and everyone that made this possible.  I’m just looking forward to the future.

Stiltner won seven races on the season at Lonesome Pine Raceway en route to the track championship, which he had secured entering Saturday night’s race.

“Seven wins, that’s pretty good,” Stiltner explained.  “I was hoping to make it eight on Saturday.  We just had a great season.  This is just amazing right here.  We didn’t win the battle but we won the war.”

The championship was Stiltner’s first Late Model Stock Car championship and second Lonesome Pine Raceway championship.  In 2011, he won the championship in the Charger division at Lonesome Pine.

Stiltner scored his first career victory last season at Lonesome Pine Raceway.  Entering the season, he wanted to chase the championship at Lonesome Pine Raceway.  He also competed at Kingsport Speedway in Tennessee during the 2013 season where he had a handful of solid runs.

“We got a monkey off our back last year when we won a race,” Stiltner remarked.  “Now we’ve got a championship.  Hopefully next season, we can pick up even more wins.”
