Paul Lallier outlasts the fieldOn May 19, 2013
For the second year in a row, Paul Lallier found himself as the winner in week two. This time, he was able to celebrate with all his family, fans and friends. Paul took over the lead on lap eleven, and never looked back for his first win of the season.
Chris DeMoura took off at the drop of the green and led the first circuit before the first slow up of the event came out. Bob Bettencourt moved into second, and on the restart, put the blue and white #21 to the front, edging out DeMoura. Bettencourt set the pace for a few laps before the N Dighton native took back over. The pair swapped the lead back and forth several times before the pair made contact on lap ten, sending DeMoura into the pits and Bettencourt around on the back stretch.
While the fight at the front of the pack wasn’t a hard one, the action was going on for fourth on back. Rey Negley, Crystal Serydynski, Scott Serydynski and Justin Travis were all fighting amongst each other for position outside of the top five, swapping positions back and forth between them.
Lallier took off at the green, and held off Craig Pianka and Charles Beal on the final few restarts. Beal held on for second, Pianka third, opening day winner Rey Lovelace fourth and Jimmy Belmont fifth.
