MURPHY MAKES IT THREE STRAIGHT IN TRUCKS Rob Murphy climbed through the field, then had to spoil teammate Chase Belcher’s bid for a feature win enroute to his third consecutive victory. Belcher’s runnerup finish made it a big 1-2 for the Tom Barboza team on the evening. Mike Cavallaro pursued but could not pass the duo, settling for a third. John Paiva and Darryl Church filled out the top five. Murphy, after two wins, started tenth on the field of fifteen trucks; Belcher came from seventh and made it to the front first, displacing Lenny Guy who had held the lead for twelve laps since the start. Murphy arrived a bit later and took over at the the front on lap 20. The win assures that Murphy will remain perched atop the Sport Truck standings. Guy was away from the box quickly from the pole, with Wakefield riding along on his bumper, Nick Uhrig following and Belcher contesting with Rob Rainville for fourth. Rainville fell back and Paiva went under him into fifth, then switched sides to work on Uhrig’s outside after Belcher had taken third. As Paiva around Uhrig, Nick came loose, banging Paiva, loosening him up and allowing Belcher to escape into third place. By lap five, Guy had Wakefield on his bumper and Belcher closing. Church and Murphy were moving up and as Uhrig entered the frontstretch he erupted in smoke or vapor, leaving a trail of fluid along the frontstretch from the exit to turn four to turn one. Incredibly the field was able to avoid the spinning truck and the fluid. Uhrig was pushed...

OUELLETTE: FIRST FEATURE WIN IN 600’S Tim Ouellette spent a dangerous evening holding off a hard-charging Eric LeBrun for fifteen out of twenty laps, the two seldom more than inches between bumpers in a heart-pounding duel to the checkers. But Oellette staunchly defended his position at the front as LeBrun worked desperately for his second win on the season. They finished as they had raced, rocketing across the stripe just two tenths of a second apart. Last week’s winner and points leader Derek Debbis was third, followed by Cassie Meservey and Anthony Marvin. It took two tries to get the field racing, as Luke Lebrun spun out of turn four on the opening lap. No wrecks, as the field scrambled and the lined back up. Oullette and Alexandria Lillie shared the front row and Lillie had a nose as they crossed the stripe at the end of lap one. But Lillie, who had outlasted Debbis for the win in the preliminary, suddenly lost power on the back stretch and pitted after three laps. Suddenly, Oullette was alone, eight cars up on Cassie Meservey, who had Michael Toner in tow. LeBrun came alongside Toner briefly, then was past him and Meservey into second, over the next two laps. Ouellette was fifteen cars into the distance at this point. But LeBrun now had a mission and over the next two laps, he had narrowed the lead to three lengths and was on his bumper after two more circuits. With ten laps remaining, the two settled down to a deadly duel of wits and skill. They were door-to-door on lap twelve, as...
