Voluntown, CT’s Nick Ladyga continues his winning streak at Seekonk with his third consecutive Nick’s Pit Stop Legends event. The win gives him a guaranteed starting position in the INEX Nationals, and a leg up in the Phil’s Propane Triple Crown Series. Chris Robbins was the early leader before Nick Lascoula moved past and into the lead. Ladyga wasn’t far behind, after starting eighth in the field, taking second from Robbins on the fourth lap. He chased down Lascoula, and the pair raced bumper to bumper until the caution came out on lap 8.
Over the next few laps, the pair raced side by side, swapping the lead back and forth until Ladyga moved past and closed the door. While they were battling, Dana DeMatteo moved into the fight, and moved past Lascoula for a couple of laps. Nick was able to regain the runner up position, but not easily, as Dana kept the pressure on until the checkered. Joey Parker and Brendon Bock rounded out the top five.
*in post-race tech, DeMatteo’s car did not pass, moving Brandon Martinez into fifth.
