LUKE LEBRUN MAKES IT A BIG 3 IN 600’s A lap one crash moved Luke LeBrun from an eighth place start to the pole and he was unassailable for the remaining 19 circuits enroute to his third victory on the season. On the way, he acquired Anthony Marvin as a chaser. Marvin closed in and spent the final laps all over LeBrun’s bumper but could not pry the lead away, finishing a half-second back. Marissa Morgan was third in a tight pace-line to the finish, with Karlin Levesque working high and low, but unable to pass. He gathered up fourth, while Corey Charette gathered in fifth. Three competitors were eliminated before lap two was complete. Following a spin by AvaChouinard in turn two of lap one, the field reset, but Alexandra Lillie, Trenton Goodrow, Scott Serydynsky,Jr and Karlin Levesque held a spinning ballet into turn three. Zachary Martinez attempted to depart viathe pit exit, but ground to a halt at its entrance, ending his evening prematurely. LeBrun shared the pole with Corey Charette and was able to spring to the front on the third start. Colin McMullen got under Charette and into second while Marissa Morgan followed to third. But Trenton Goodrow and Alexandria Lillie got into it and Goodrow spun across the berm. He went to the pits. LeBrun again took the lead and Morgan vaulted past McMullen for second while Marvin captured third. Karlin Levesque pulled in behind McMullen before Serydynski spun out of turn four into the infield. The lap four restart saw Marvin looking under Morgan as LeBrun ran to the front. Marvin claimed second...

This Week at the Action Track of the East!

We have hit the final stretch of the season here at the Action Track of the East. It is extremely hard to believe that we are now into the second weekend in August with only about seven weeks of racing remaining before we pack these machines into the garages for the offseason which will probably include the normal ton of snow. This week we have a special conclusion to the Pro Stock Phil’s Propane Triple Crown Series with 65 laps of action. Tom Scully Jr. leads the group of four into the finale after winning round one, but he also will come into the event the overall points leader. It will be interesting to see with double points up for grabs if he is able to hold the title lead or do the gremlins haunt him in the extra distance affair. He joins Freddy Astle, Kevin Folan and Rick Martin in the last group of cars eligible for the Triple Crown title. What happens there? Will the championship chase close up even more headed into the final six weeks? Folan has been strong of late, but Martin has fought an ill-handling race car. The Late Model championship fight has also closed up. Bobby Pelland III took over the title lead after last weekends second place finish to Jeramme Lille and he is seemingly the favorite to hold on and grab the title crown by season’s end. On Friday evening, we will crown a champion in the Sport 4 division Triple Crown Series fight. We have had two exciting 25 lap features so far this season and this one should...

MORGAN OUTLASTS LEVESQUE BY INCHES FOR 600 WIN Marissa Morgan out-dueled Karlin Levesque over the nine closing laps of the SYRA 600 feature for a .010-second hairsbreadth margin. It was a big win with double points in the Phil’s Propane Triple Crown feature. They had run wheel-to-wheel, exchanging the lead since charging out of the box on a lap- eleven restart in the 20-lap feature. Trenton Goodrow completed the race in third followed by Luke LeBrun and Scott Serydynski, Jr. Morgan started on the front, outside polesitter Ava Chouinard and they went side-by-side down the front as Evan Marchand jumped in underneath Chouinard for a three-wide at the front. Goodrow was the outside car in the mix. Into the first lap, Morgan led Marchand, Goodrow and Chouinard who had Serydynski on the outside. But Marchand got into the grass in turn two of the second circuit. He tried to fight back onto the oval, but lost traction on the grass and spun. Morgan and Goodrow lined up with Serydynski and Chouinard behind them. Morgan nabbed the lead with Serydynski capturing second over Goodrow while Levesque moved into fourth, then under Goodrow to third. Morgan edged into a one-car lead and the field stretched out into a tight single file until Levesque looked outside Serydynski on the backstretch but was denied and Goodrow attempted to run underneath him. Morgan continued to lead as Serydynski, Levesque, Goodrow and LeBrun ran a tight line behind her. By lap 10, she was eight cars up on them. But LeBrun spun in the middle of the backstretch on lap eleven, bringing out the yellow...

This weekend at the Seekonk Speedway we are wrapping up the Phil’s Propane Triple Crown Series for one of our divisions. That will come on Saturday evening, but let us begin with Friday. After a week off because of Mother Nature raining on our parade last week, we are back in action ending the month of July with a bang. Round two of the Phil’s Propane Triple Crown Series for the Pure Stocks will take center stage. That race was scheduled for last Friday evening but with the weather has been moved to this week, giving us three Triple Crown Series races on the night. The Pure Stock Triple Crown Series has seen one race so far and Amy Arsenault put her Chaz’s Auto Body No. 9 machine into victory lane in thrilling fashion and currently holds the point standings lead in the division as well. Arnsenault has had some strong seasons in the past but never quite been able to seal the deal when it comes to the championship chase. Could this be the year a lady takes the Pure Stock title? Round two for the SYRA 600 and the SYRA 750 will also get underway on Friday evening. Even though both races will have double points and double the glory up for grabs, the distance will remain the same. SYRA drivers will be competing in 20 lap features with their normal 8 lap heats on Friday evening. Don’t forget… Each of the divisions still have round three before a champion can be decided. The Nick’s Pit Stop Legend Cars and Sport 4 will also be in action...

LaMothe, Murphy, Lebrun, Caddick & Levesque Nail Fast Friday Wins!

LAMOTHE TAKES FOURTH WIN, NOTCHES TRIPLE CROWN SLOT Jordan Lamothe added to his three early season wins with a big victory in the second round of the Phil’s Propane Triple Crown, taking the lead after a lap-15 restart, depriving Ryan Kuhn who had led the initial 23 circuits in the 30-lap feature. He also surprised Brandon Martinez, who had shown as the hot pursuer and had lined up outside Kuhn for the restart. But Lamothe was inside Brandon Hammond in the second row. Kuhn ran wheel-to-wheel with Martinez, then pulled ahead. Martinez dropped into second ahead of Lamothe, Jake Johnson, Ray Parent, Jr. and Chris Robbins. Lamothe looked underneath, but Martinez slammed the door. Kuhn worked out to a three-car lead as Lamothe got under Martinez and into second. A lap later, Lamothe had closed on the leader and the lead trio ran nose-to-tail. Lamothe then nosed under into the lead. Martinez followed into second. Lamothe was able to hold onto the lead through four more restarts in the caution-filled feature to claim the victory. Johnson moved up to second, and TJ Thompson moved into third. Hammond and Martinez were fourth and fifth, respectively. Kuhn came off the pole at the start, and rocketed away. Parent got under Joey Lembo for second but Thompson, who started low on the third row, roared up and tapped Parent’s rear bumper, putting Thompson into a turn 4 spin. The race restart saw Kuhn away very fast and Parent under Lembo for second as a four-wide situation opened up at mid-pack. Kuhn had all the boosters blasting as he went out to a...

This week we have more round two action of the Phil’s Propane Triple Crown Series as drivers prepare for the finale in the coming weeks. Fast Friday will see round two for the Nick’s Pit Stop Legend Cars with more than 25 cars expected to be in battle for the extra distance feature. With 30 laps and double points up on the line, there is no telling what could happen. Jordan Lamothe will return after missing action last week due to a vacation and will be looking to pounce. He has gone winless in the last two races after winning three quick feature events right off the bat. You will see names like Jesse Melberg, Brandon Martinez and Chris Robbins battle it out for glory in round two. Joining the Legend Cars will be the SYRA 600 and SYRA 750, Pure Stocks and Sport 4. It will be interesting to see if Corey Caddick can repeat in the Sport 4 class, after dominating and driving away by more than half the track last week. It was an impressive showing for sure. The SYRA drivers have seen some interesting feature races so far. Hard battles throughout the field which has included some hard crashes have highlighted the action. On Saturday night, we have the Phil’s Propane Triple Crown Series round two for the NASCAR Whelen All American Series Pro Stock division. The...
