Degasparre, Adams, Church & Lineham with NWAAS Wins!

  DEGASPARRE ROCKETS FROM GREEN TO CHECKERS Gerry DeGasparre, Jr. exploded from the outside pole to start the extra-laps Mike Marfeo, Jr. Memorial race (also stop two on the Phil’s Propane Triple Crown) to take the lead down the frontstretch and never yield the lead. This, despite an intense effort by Nick Uhrig, who made DeGasparre’s life miserable for forty laps out of fifty. Uhrig spent the race all over the leader’s rear bumper, charging at any and all opportunities and often trying to create some of his own. But at the end of the race, DeGasparre had a .2-second lead and a trip to Victory Lane. Still, it was his first of the season and a change in what the Late Model multi-champ admits has been a difficult year for the team. Dave Hutchins, Jr., who had run second from lap three to lap 11, ran in for third, followed by points leader Charlie Rose and Bobby Pelland III. DeGasparre revealed to the crowd that Mike Marfeo, Sr. had been spotting for him in the memorial, which turned out to be his 50th career win. Missing, however, he told the crowd, was his father, Gerry, Sr., who is awaiting surgery. Polesitter Ron Barboza, Jr. battled DeGasparre at the start, but went to second ahead of Uhrig and Hutchins, who ran by into third on lap two. Mark Hudson then pulled alongside Uhrig. But Curtis Rolando’s spin brought out the caution. Degasparre and Barboza set up for the restart and DeGasparre ran to the front. Barboza dropped into second and pursued but Hutch eased him back to third. Uhrig,...

  THIS WEEK AT THE ACTION TRACK OF THE EAST!!! This week at the Action Track of the East we have a star-studded lineup on both the Friday and Saturday night program. On Friday evening, we are excited to begin round two of the 2015 Phil’s Propane Triple Crown Series with the Sport 4 class. We have been through each of our divisions once in the Triple Crown Series now on both Friday and Saturday. So far, after round one, David Westgate holds the lead in the Triple Crown Series standings. He took the checkered flag in round one of the series back on June 5, just over a month ago. He will be looking for his third overall win of 2015 and looking to not only pad his Triple Crown points lead, but his overall drivers points lead as well. Joining the Sport 4 division on Friday will be the SYRA classes, both the 600 and 750. Both divisions come off their Phil’s Triple Crown races two weeks ago and the championship battles have tightened up throughout. Marissa Morgan leads the 600 championship fight coming in and Shea Kulpa leads the 750 championship run. Both ladies will be looking for their first career championship and Morgan is still chasing her first career track victory. They would become the second and third lady champions in the history of the Seekonk Speedway. Last season, Shelby Donavan took the SYRA 750 title. On Saturday evening our Saturday night divisions begin round two of their Triple Crown Series with a double-dipper for the fans. Since it rained two weeks ago, both the...

CLICK HERE FOR TRIKE RACE RULES & FORM DOWNLOAD! Please bring the filled out form to the base of the tower before the event or these sheets will be available at the base of the tower to fill out as well! This Week At the Action Track of the East! This week here at the Action Track of the East we have the Phil’s Propane Triple Crown Series rolling on for a fifth consecutive weekend! On Fast Friday we will see the SYRA divisions rise to the top looking for glory in their respective 20 lap feature events. With the racing we have seen thus far in the SYRA division, especially the 750, these Triple Crown races could spell some of the best racing across the Northeast. Watch for Shea Kulpa to continue her strong runs in the SYRA 750 this weekend. Kulpa, a two-time feature winner already this year, has one of the best handling cars the division has seen in recent memory. It seems as if when the Donavan sisters left the class, Bowser and Kulpa picked up as the lady leaders. In the SYRA 600, watch for Anthony Marvin and Marissa Morgan to continue their championship fight. They both battled hard coming from the back to the front of the field to the front late in last weeks main event and this week could either spell success or big trouble. With double points up on the line in the Phil’s Propane Triple Crown Series, one of those drivers could go from leading the standings to outside the top five in a blink of an eye. Also...

Lillie, Cavallaro & Scully Saturday Night NASCAR Feature Winners!

  THE HAMMER TAKES LATE MODELS, GREEN TO CHECKERS Nobody could touch Jeramee Lillie. The Hammer had the horses to pull away from anybody and everybody over four restarts and though Austin Blais made a determined run over the closing laps, Lillie had built a significant cushion to hold on to his victory. Blais finished a second off the pace for second. Mark Hudson had another good feature run for third while Gerry DeGasparre, Jr. and Dylan Estrella concluded the top five. In fact, Hudson and Blais divided the time in second, Hudson taking the first ten laps before giving way to Blais for the finale. He had been outside Lillie for the green, and dropped in front of TJ Moreshead as Roland Wheeler lost spped on the start. Lillie had held off to the very end of the starting box and cars at the rear were already charging forward when Wheeler lost speed and Vinny Arrenegado took all the abuse, finding himself around in turn one. It was an instant replay on the lap 0 restart. Wheeler then went below Moreshead and took a tap from Blais and went loose momentarily, but held on. On the second circuit, Lillie manufactured a five-car lead while Wheeler and Moreshead debated third, ahead of Blais and Bobby Pelland III who were contesting fifth. Pelland leapt forward on the ensuing lap, looking between Wheeler and Moreshead, who backed out while Wheeler shot forward, outside Blaise and Charlie Rose moved in under Pelland, who began dropping back. Lillie now led Hudson by eight cars as Rose moved ahead and Pelland worked underneath Wheeler....
