Marvin, Miranda, Bowser, Baxter & Thompson Take Fast Friday Wins!

  TJ THOMPSON IRREPRESSIBLE IN LEGENDS TJ Thompson blasted off the launch pad in the laps-added Phil’s Propane Triple Crown Legends feature and made his way rapidly to the lead by lap eight to deprive the speedy polesitter Chris Robbins of the lead. By then, he was supersonic and outran the field to the finish, increasing his lead slowly to better than 25 cars at the finish: a 2.156 second margin of victory over Jordan Lamothe, who has dominated the first two features in the young Fast Fridays season. The event, which was also a qualifier for this year’s Legends Nationals, had a host of hotshoes battling at the front, also including Jesse Melberg, Brandon “Batman” Martinez, Brandon Packard, John O’Sullivan and Jesse Jakubajtys. The front ten was a riot of cars battling for position and exchanging places. Robbins and Packard came off the pole and dueled before Robbins ground to the front. Jakubajtys followed but Matt Carpenter dived under into third and then Martinez ducked in to run wheel-to-wheel. Caution flew going into lap four as division champ Nick Lascuola spun in turn four. Curt Snow was unable to avoid a collision and a hard hit ensued. Both vehicles were eliminated by the wreck. Lascuola, who had missed the heats due to his high school graduation, had moved rapidly from the end of the field to 16th, passing 3 cars per lap. Robbins and Packard lined up for the lap 3 restart. But Thompson was now low in the row behind them and did a quick look under Robbins after following him through under Packard. They came door-to-door...
This Week @ The Action Track of the East!

This Week @ The Action Track of the East!

Article by Kyle Souza What a weekend we have on tap! This weekend the track will hold round one of the Phil’s Propane Triple Crown Series for the Nick’s Pit Stop Legend Cars on Fast Friday. It will be the second weekend of the Triple Crown Series action for our Fast Friday divisions. For me, the Legends Triple Crown races are some of the most exciting events the track has to offer during the course of the season. They provide side by side racing with some of the young guns here at the track that are looking for a breakthrough ride into a Saturday night division. Nick Lascuola may make a few appearances in these events this season and he will easily be a favorite. The defending champion competed last week and came laps away from a victory before contact sent him to the rear end of the field. Who will be the one to capture the checkers in the 30-lap feature event? Was it not great last week to see Mike Duarte grab a win in the Sports Trucks? He has been fast all season long and it was great to finally see him breakthrough and grab his first winning flag. Congrats go out to Richard Savary as well. He came into Seekonk and stormed through the field to collect the win in the Valenti Modified Racing Series 100. Catch the modifieds back at Seekonk once again on Wednesday July 1. On Saturday, we have the on track pit party going on before the racing begins at 4:00 PM. This is one of my favorite nights of the...

Lebrun, Kulpa, Westgate, Desrosiers & Lamothe Take Fast Friday Wins

LEBRUN GOES FRONT TO BACK TO FRONT FOR 600 WIN Luke LeBrun saw the whole field in his SYRA 600 win: he kicked off the feature by taking the front from the pole position, outdistancing Anthony Marvin, then spun out of turn four to find himself at the rear of the field. He worked his way back to fourth behind Alexandra Lillie, Scott Serydynski, Jr and last week’s winner, Karlin Levesque, who was leading. Serydynski, troubling Levesque for the front, came loose in turn two, tagged Levesque and a mad scramble ensued, with Lillie involved and LeBrun eking his way around the swarm – and onto the pole for the restart. Levesque was pit-bound for the evening. Race officials warned the competitors that any further cautions would end the race, already long with restarts on the opening lap, laps 3, 5, 6, and two tries at lap 12. The lap 16 restart saw LeBrun escape Marvin, who surged back up before Luke took control out of turn two. Marvin continued to try to wrest the lead away, but Charette got into Serydynski and was around as Marvin chased LeBrun over the stripe under the yellow/checkered flags, ending the race. Marissa Morgan escaped and crossed in third, while Charette nabbed fourth. Lillie ducked through for fifth. Serydinski was able to hold on to his car and finished sixth, the last car running. LeBrun had stormed out of the box with Marvin alongside at the outset, finally gaining the advantage in turn one. Lillie got under Marvin into second with Serydynski giving chase and Marvin falling in behind him. Morgan and...
Lamothe, Kun, Levesque, Westgate & Toner Win Opening Day Fast Friday Style!

Lamothe, Kun, Levesque, Westgate & Toner Win Opening Day Fast Friday Style!

  LAMOTHE SLICES TO OPENING NIGHT LEGENDS WIN Jordan Lamothe wasted no time in showing the opening night crowd at Fast Friday Night’s opener that he hasn’t lost any of last year’s speed in a slicing duel with a quick crew of challengers and coming out ahead by a quarter-second. Jesse Mel berg was snarling at his bumper for the final ten laps, making the journey an uncomfortable one, but Jordan held him off to the checkers. Also slicing in on the hunt and giving Melberg fits over the closing laps was John O’Sullivan, who roared into the fray on Melberg’s tailfeathers. Colin Haley had hardly been outside the top five all evening, and he snarled into the dogfight for the final eight circuits to score fourth place, just ahead of Jake Johnson. Chris Robbins inaugurated the excitement by leaping off the pole with Nick Wisialko trying to keep pace while Mel berg and Lamothe pursued from the second row, Lamothe working the second groove on the wide side. Haley stole fifth from O’Sullivan and chased Lamothe while Melberg elevated from second and set course to intercept Robbins, who had a ten car lead by lap four. By lap six, the duo was lapping the tail end of the pack. Lamothe disengaged from the field and tore after Robbins and Melberg as they began navigating dense lapped traffic. The overtaken were a problem on lap 12 as Brandon Martinez was trapped by a slow-mover. Martinez and Haley were running fifth and sixth but the tangle had Haley in a spin to bring caution. Melberg and Robbins roared out of...
