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...
Degasparre, Adams, Church & Lineham with NWAAS Wins!

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!!! 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...
