Izzo wins Legend feature over fast paced field

Izzo wins Legend feature over fast paced field

Legends Feature Recap for 8-21 Dylan Izzo and Nick Lascoula had a classic battle in the Nick’s Pit Stop Legends feature event, that saw Izzo emerge victorious for the first time ever at the Seekonk Speedway. Izzo has come to Seekonk this season after multiple seasons of competition at Waterford Speedbowl, looking to try a new track and fight with new drivers. The domination so far in the 2014 season for Nick Lascoula has been absolutely insane. Lascoula has now won 10 of 12 feature events and has also broken the record for most consecutive wins in the tracks history. Jariah Roderick and Nick Wizialko brought the 18-car field to the green flag in front of a great crowd. While Roderick jumped out to the lead in turn one, Lascoula and Izzo worked three wide to the inside and jumped inside the top five before lap one was complete. While the field started to get single file, Travis Snow spun his 32 signs #7 in turn three bringing down the first caution of the event on lap 4. Snow was able to continue with minimal to no damage, settling in line at the tail end for the restart to come. Brandon Martinez and Brandon Packard brought the field back to the green flag, while Jesse Melberg hounded the back end. Melberg was able to slide around and get to the point, but when Snow spun again in turn three, Martinez was awarded back the lead as the scoring goes back to the last completed green flag lap. On the ensuing restart, Melberg jumped out to the lead but was...

SYRA 750 recap for 8-21 Shelby Donavan used a slip up by TJ Moreshead on the bottom lane to find herself moving from the tail to the front and eventually right into Victory Lane for another win on the season in the SYRA 750’s. David White brought the field down to green in his Field of Dreams #19 but had an issue on the original start that dropped him all the way to the tail end of the field. While he did that, outside pole sitter Shea Kulpa inherited the lead down in turn one and started to set sail until the caution flag flew. When the field rolled into three and four on lap one, Brandon Lille got sideways and spun down into the infield grass at the exit of turn four. The caution came out, setting up a restart with Kulpa and Donavan on the front row. Shelby used the top groove too find herself out front and immediately started leaving the field in her dust. While she did that, Joey Lembo and Taylor Bowser both were able to slide their way around Kulpa and jump into the top three. Just as Bowser started to wind up the outside in her #07. the caution flag came out for the second time when Shea Kulpa spun off turn four. Race control officials deemed that the caution was drawn intentionally and put Kulpa one lap down to the rest of the field. Once the green flag went back up into the wind, Bowser tried to work the outside of Lembo for the second spot. Lembo was fighting hard down...

For the last couple of seasons we all became pretty close. Crab would often bring oysters, clams and stuffies to the track to, as he put it, “Give us an edge”.

DARLING TAKES PRO WIN, BRIGHTMAN HAULS DOWN TRIPLE CROWN Dave Darling shook off the past weeks of bad luck that has plagued him and once again was at his best and hauled down a win on the Pro Stock Phil’s Triple Crown 65-lap feature. Mike Brightman, on a last-minute pass of points leader Kenny Spencer, grabbed fourth place, which (added to a second and a third in other Triple Crown races) granted him the honors of the Phil’s Propane Triple Crown for the 2014 season. Darling’s win, pointswise, pushed him past Fred Astle, who went out just after the midpoint thanks to a collision which yielded a nose-crushing meeting with the frontstretch wall. Spencer’s fifth kept him comfortably ahead of Darling’s second in the points column. Tom Scully, Sr. jumped away from the pole and went door-to-door with Bob Hussey, but gained the lead down the backstretch as Kevin Folan got up under Hussey and Bob Pelland III contested fourth place, door-to-door with Jake Vanada. By lap 3, Scully had a five-car lead. Folan, Hussey and Vanada were bumper-to-bumper, followed by Pelland, Kevin Casper and Dick Houlihan. The remainder of the field was two-wide behind them. Scully continued to move away and had built a straightaway lead on Folan. Hussey was another eight cars back, with Vanada hugging his bumper. Pelland had faded an additional cars. Houlihan then moved underneath Pelland into fifth and Darling followed. But Scully was running well enough to be almost a half lap in the lead. Darling took fifth from Houli and Craig Weinstein did the same on lap later. By Lap 22, Spencer...
