PAIVA HOLDS OFF MURPHY FOR SPORT TRUCKS WIN After two early-race cautions, the Sport Trucks feature ran caution free from lap two through the lap 25 checkers with John Paiva coming on with one-third of the laps remaining to deprive Mike Cavallaro of the lead and rush on through the remaining eight laps to Victory Lane. Cavallaro had one lap previous deprived leading rookie on the division, Eric LeBrun of his fifteen lap stint in the lead. Rob Murphy then cruised in to edge Cavallaro out of second and Chase Belcher sat Mike in third. Late in the race, points leader David Lougee pried Cavallaro out of fourth. LeBrun had gone from the pole to the lead, and Joseph Fortin II got under Dan Johnson into second. But Mike Duarte had come out of the box to spin at the stripe, bringing the field back for a complete restart. The spin had been a mechanical problem which sent Duarte to the sidelines. Again LeBrun grabbed the lead before Johnson spun sideways in turn four, taking a big hit from Bob Rainville, sending them both to the pits and ending their nights. LeBrun once again secured the lead but Lougee spun on lap two, from fluid he was leaking. He went to the pits, but dropped a lot of fluid, which initiated a major cleanup with speedy dry, lasting 20 minutes. The delay was long enough that Lougee’s crew was able to correct the fault and get him back out just as the field hit the starting box. As LeBrun continued to lead Cavallaro, Murphy followed Paiva and Church... read more
CAREER WIN NUMBER ONE FOR GOODROW IN 600’s Trenton Goodrow nailed down his first career win, elevating him to the status of second generation Seekonk racers to win a feature, after his father Jeff Goodrow, who had a career in the Late Models in the latter 1990’s. Trenton deprived pole sitter Ava Chouinard of the lead on a lap two restart following a spin by Alexandria Lillie. From there it was green flag and an unheaded straight shoot to the checkers for the leading rookie in the division. Karlin Levesque’s third place finish elevated him to the honor of Phil’s Propane Triple Crown divisional winner for the 2015 season. Goodrow never had a moment’s peace, however, as Anthony Marvin roared up from a last place start and deprived Scott Serydynski, Jr. of second on lap seven. Marvin then spent the remainder of the feature giving Goodrow the most difficult time possible. Levesque moved into third at the same time, while Luke LeBrun joined the pursuit one lap later. Serydynski joined in as a tight line wound around the bullring for the final 12 laps; all five leaders finished on the same second. Marissa Morgan had risen to sixth by lap four and spent the next five laps in pursuit of LeBrun. But her car became problematic and Evan Marchand steered past as she began a slow fade to tenth, completed when Chouinard took her out of ninth. Marchand held onto the position until Zachary Martinez edged him back to seventh with two laps remaining. Lillie had battled her car since the early spin and completed the feature in... read more

DUARTE NOTCHES SECOND WIN IN SPORTS TRUCKS For most of the 2015 season in the Sports Trucks division at Seekonk Speedway, drivers have struggled to click of a faster time then Mike Duarte in practice all day long. Duarte, nicknamed “Showtime,’ is an upcoming driver who hails out of Dighton, Massachusetts. He is always towards the top of the speed charts in practice, however, some bad luck and misfortune this season had kept him from posting the finishes that he should have gotten. One week it was the rear end breaking, one week it was a flat tire and another week it was the shifter coming off in his hand. With all of that behind him, Duarte showed up to Seekonk Speedway Saturday night and put on one hell of a show in front of a good crowd. Mike Lopes and Dan Johnson brought the field of Sports Trucks to the green flag for the 25 lap feature event and Lopes was on the gas extremely quickly, surprising Johnson just a tad. He couldn’t stick with him going into turn one and Duarte was able to drop to the bottom of the track and make the move of the race. He found himself quickly under Lopes going down into turn three and took the lead away before the first lap even clicked onto the scoreboard. While Duarte started putting some distance between he and Lopes, Chase Belcher took advantage of the inside lane being open to take second spot quickly. While he did that, teammate Rob Murphy charged through the field quickly and allowed himself plenty of time to... read more
Anthony Marvin Claims Second SYRA 600 Feature Win of 2015 Rookie contenders Ava Chouinard and Zachary Martinez brought the field of twelve SYRA 600 drivers to the green flag on Fast Friday and the action was hot and heavy right from the start of the feature. The intense drivers went three-wide in turn one with Luke LeBrun, who started sixth in the pack, moving up to the third groove and into the top spot heading into turn three. Not only was there three-wide battling up front, but throughout the field drivers were battling hard not even one lap in and it caused some chaos. Turn three on lap one saw a multi-car crash including points leader Karlin Levesque, Corey Charette, Evan Marchand and Martinez, who took a hard hit. Once the accident was cleaned up and drivers doubled back up for the restart, Chouinard and new challenger Trenton Goodrow took the front two spots but not for long, since Marissa Morgan spun in turn three drawing the second caution of the event before a lap had been put on the scoreboard. Green flag flew once again just after a short cleanup and Trenton Goodrow was able to clear to the top of the field on lap one and set sail away. Goodrow, native of Carver, Massachusetts is a rookie contender in the SYRA 600 but did not show it early on, using the outside lane with success easily. LeBrun was able to clear a tough group of challengers by lap five and get to second and start chase — but the third yellow of the feature flew on lap... read more
