Thomas takes home NEMST win while Fanning, Belsito, & Arrenegado collect NWAAS wins!

GLEN THOMAS CONQUERS NORTHEAST MINI STOCKS Glen Thomas did what no other Northeast Mini Stock driver could do since the season’s opener back in April at Lee USA Speedway:  he denied Toby Wells a win.  Until Seekonk, Wells was on a tear, taking every trophy available to the NEMS drivers with no hostages taken.  Finally, after a bounty of $250.00 was offered to anybody who could knock Wells off the top, Glen Thomas broke through the barrier, outrunning Wells over 40 laps with just a half-second margin.  Wells rocketed in for second and Tim Collins made it for third, as the Mini Stock Tour had the crowd in the palm of its hand. Joe  Baxter sailed in for fourth.  But fifth went to Seekonk’s own Darryl Church who showed up with his Seekonk Sports Truck to challenge the beasts of the tour.  And with his four cylinder power plant, he grabbed a big fifth place – not to mention winning his heat race. A field of 27 made the show and 25 hit the oval for the feature.  And from the moment the green dropped, the thrill was on.  Church jumped off the outside, beating polesitter Pete Zakarite to the stripe and leading the first two laps before Thomas stormed up to steal the front.  They went wheel-to-wheel before Thomas grabbed the front  in turn four of lap two.  Church clung to second as Zakarite held fourth, ahead of Derek Douglas and Richard Sprague who was working under Shaun Waites, Sr. But Wells was climbing rapidly, clipping off a competitor each lap and occasionally two.  By lap five he...

MARCHAND LEADS 600’S GREEN TO CHECKERS FOR FIRST WIN Evan Marchand snagged the front on the drop of the green and would not let up, carrying the torch from the initial green all the way to Victory Lane for his first-ever win in SYRA 600 competition.  Only a lap 15 caution slowed the streaking Marchand enroute to win, and he was able to pull away and reassume the lead.  Trenton Goodrow served as goad to Marchand, taking second on the opening lap and harrying him the entire 20 laps.  It was his first career victory.  Marissa Morgan, Scott Serydynski, Jr and Luke LeBrun rounded out the top five. Marchand leapt off the pole as Goodrow went under Zachary Martinez into second.  Serydynski followed into third.  Anthony Marvin got outside Martinez and went into fourth followed by Morgan. Martinez was having problems with the car and by lap 3 had faded to tenth. LeBrun had leapt from ninth to sixth, passing Karlin Levesque, Corey Charette and Martinez.  Into lap three, Marchand led Goodrow, Serydynski, Marvin, Morgan and LeBrun.  LeBrun moved up to Morgan’s bumper, while Levesque passed Charette for seventh and was 8 cars back of LeBrun, who was working the outside on Morgan but could not make the pass. By lap eight, Levesque had closed on LeBrun and worked his way underneath.  Marvin, meanwhile, was troubling Serydynski over third but was refused.  Levesque then turned the tables and moved in under Marvin but was rebuffed.  LeBrun then went low on Levesque, succeeding in taking his position back.  Marchand continued to lead Goodrow and Morgan. Goodrow was looking to go around...

This Week at the Action Track of the East!

This Week at the Action Track of the East!

Only six Friday and Saturday night regular races remain on the 2015 season here at Seekonk Speedway, then we go D.A.V. Fall Classic racing before we close out the 2015 season. Man, where did the time go? You have to remember back to Opening Day, watching Tom Scully Jr. win in honor of his ill mother and watching him celebrate with joy. Look now… Scully Jr. sits only four points behind Angelo Belsito in the Pro Stock championship chase in one that will surely be exciting going down the wire in the next few weeks. While you are here this weekend and reading the program, make sure you rip out the Most Popular Driver ballot and fill it out and pass it in at the base of the tower. Show your support for your favorite driver. Those winners will be announced later in the season during the second pit party of the year on September 5. Fast Friday this weekend should see a thrilling conclusion to the Phil’s Propane Triple Crown Series for the Nick’s Pit Stop Legend Cars. Names like Jordan Lamothe, T.J. Thompson, Jesse Melberg and others will be battling it out looking to grab the championship in the 30 lap event. We have seen car counts for the Legend Cars rise over 25 this season and I think we will be back there once again. Joining the Legends on Friday include the Sport 4’s, who come off a great race with a battle to the end between Raymond Herman Sr. and Dave Westgate. Congrats go out to Dave and the whole No. 49 team on picking...

Lougee & Pangelinan make their victory lane debuts & Pelland & Casper repeat!

LOUGEE LEADS ALL THE WAY TO FIRST CAREER TRUCKS WIN David Lougee came off the outside pole, took the front from Lenny Guy and refused to relinquish the lead for the full 25 laps, enroute to snaring his first feature win in the division. Mike Duarte chased him for 23 of those laps and John Paiva for the last two. With a restart on lap 23, Lougee had to give up a long lead and brawl it out with Paiva on his outside. Paiva used a drop-under to getbelow but Lougee stayed steady, held the hammer down and kept Paiva at bay to win by mere inches and just two hundredths of a second on the clock. Paiva was second, followed by Rob Murphy. Duarte took fourth, and Chase Belcher rounded out the top five. Lougee, who already led Belcher in divisional points, was quick out of the box but Guy bore down and drove back alongside in turn two, but he got high and wide, allowing Lougee to go to the front. Duarte, who started low in the second row, also was able to sweep under Guy and into second. Mike Cavallaro started fifth and as Darryl Church faded from fourth on the outside, Cavallaro swept under him and Guy into third. Lougee moved away with Duarte and Cavallaro in pursuit, as behind them, Belcher, Paiva and Rob Murphy scrambled to join in. Lougee went out to a two-car lead on Duarte, who in turn was five up on Cavallaro while Paiva was harrying Mike’s back bumper. Murphy got past Belcher to chase Paiva. As Duarte began to...
