KUN: SECOND WIN IN THREE WEEKS YIELDS DAV CROWN

KUN: SECOND WIN IN THREE WEEKS YIELDS DAV CROWN Andrew Kun followed up his first rookie win near season’s end with the ultimate victory in the season-ending DAV Memorial. As before, Kun started on the front row, holding pole position under Randy Moretti. They came out of the box dead even. They went wheel-to-wheel down the back, while in mid-pack Keri-Lyn Manfredo got together between turns one and two. Cars scattered and there was smoke everywhere, but the entire field managed to keep moving. On the second circuit, however, Jeremy Lambert’s motor went silent in turn three. Kun and Moretti lined up again and again they were door-to-door across the stripe, hacksawing the lead. But Kun began to edge ahead and second time around, he was 90 percent past. On the next lap, Moretti attempted to drop in, but Daniel Massa was holding the low groove and Moretti’s rear quarter caught his nose, loosening Moretti up. Slowed and on the outside, he faded back. Masse settled in to chase the leader with John Robidoux, Jay Heroux and Moretti giving chase. In the back, 2014 champ, Mark Murphy was struggling with Ed Gould all over his bumper. By lap five, Kun was five cars up on Massa. Robidoux was another 2 back with Heroux on his bumper. Nick Johnson was fifth, leading Moretti and Scott Cestodio. By lap 10 the three leaders were nose-to-tail, followed by Heroux and Johnson. They remained locked together through the next four laps, waiting for any opportunity that might come. On lap fifteen, the began to encounter lapped traffic. Cestodio was running seventh, behind Moretti,...
IZZO OUTLASTS LASCUOLA IN LEGENDS

IZZO OUTLASTS LASCUOLA IN LEGENDS

Dylan Izzo and Nick Lascuola engaged each other in a battle royale well worthy of the D. Anthony Venditti Memorial in the grand finale of the 2014 racing season. It was the record setting Seekonk Legends champion versus the speedster from Waterford and they lived up to expectations. They each won their heats and started on the front row with Lascuola on the pole. And after an in-your-face battle, with Jordan Lamothe and Colin Haley on the attack and Devin O’Connell roaring up from the back of the pack, Izzo pulled into a comfortable lead of nearly a straightaway and finally under the checkers. Lascuola came home second and O’Connell, who started eleventh on a field of 14, rushed up behind, a third of a second back of Lascuola. Lamothe was fourth followed by Haley. Lascuola edged ahead and had a length on Izzo in turn two, but Dylan elected to stay outside and battle. Lamothe pulled up onto Lascuola’s bumper. Izzo settled into second on the second circuit while Lamothe and Haley were in hot pursuit, chased in turn by Matt Carpenter and Mikey Flynn. Third time around, Izzo dropped under Lascuola between thurns three and four and they came down the front straight door-to-door. Izzo pulled into the lead and Lascuola dropped underneath to retake the lead but was rebuffed. Izzo then went to a one-car lead and Lamothe, Haley, Carpenter and Flynn stayed hard on their tails. By lap 5, Izzo had a five car lead, but a kink in his plans came when they roared up on lapped traffic. Izzo moved to go outside Christine...
