LASCOLA DUELS PARKER FOR LEGENDS WIN

Nick Lascola’s tenure in the Legends Division this year has become legendary – but equally legendary have been his competitors pursuit.  Early season, wins were divided between him and Nick Ladyga.  Since midseason and Ladyga’s departure, Joey Parker has taken over to try to wrest victory away from him.  Parker again forced Lascola to work for his acclaim, but Nick was again able to come away with the trophy. Brandon Martinez started on pole and was having a night for himself at the front, pulling away from Andrew Carpenter and dueling with him for the first five laps until Lascola arrived on the doorstep after starting seventh on the sixteen-car field. Parker had started ninth and followed him, getting by Matthew Carpenter, Matt Chagnot, then Alan Smith, Andrew Carpenter and Tj Thompson to sit third as Lascola moved Martinez back to second.  Three laps later, “Batman’s” early speed came at a cost as his engine grenade coming down the front stretch and Martinez ground to a stop entering turn three with smoke filling the car.  Caution came and the fire brigade arrived, but there were no flames; only the smoke of a cooked motor.   Lascola and Parker leapt away as the front row and Lascola pulled to a four car lead before Joe Punum spun out of turn three.  They joined again for a alp sixteen restart.  Lascola...

MIRANDA MAKES IT TWO IN A ROW IN SPORT FOURS

Devin Miranda disregarded the Seekonk rule that he must come from the back of the pack after a feature win;  he did, but gobled up great amounts of distance quickly, landing in third behind Eric Pelletier and Shawn DeMello going into lap eight.  He was in second by lap nine, when Pelletier suddenly slowed, drove up to the wall and limped to the pits.  DeMello took over the lead and seemed to be romping to a win until they encountered lapped traffic.  Miranda closed to his bumper and they charged through until they met a pair of cars who were going a lap down but would not clear the racing area.  DeMello elected to take the high side.  Jason Enos, one of the lappees, made contact with Miranda, spinning him and bringing out the caution. Miranda went to the pole for the restart, pulled away from David Westgate with three laps remaining and outran Glen Leduc to the checkers by two seconds.  David Gargara, Michael Glad and Westgate completed the top five. Tylar Nailor came off the outside pole to take the lead as the race began and Chuck McDonald jumped under polesetter Kim Bickford for a momentary 3-wide.  But Nailor ran to the clear air with Bickford behind him and McDonald fell to third.  Pelletier came through to second , getting past McDonald on lap three and then...

LOUGEE TAKES 750’S, LEADING GREEN TO CHECKERS

David Lougee turned his unlucky season around with a monster win, leading the SYRA 750 class throughout the 20 lap feature.  Lougee went quickly out to a large lead as the field battled behind him.  He held of Christine Cavallaro on the solo (lap 13) restart of the feature and moved away enroute to a .113 second win over tenacious Kaitlyn Donovan.  Cavallaro was just .66 off in third. Lougee was on the front row for the opening blast, outside Ashley Kuhn.  Theyt went doorhandle to doorhandle down the frontstretch before Lougee claimed the lead out of turn two.  Pit work after the heat, which saw him finished last on the field must have turned up the power as he began to pull swiftly away from the field.  Shelby Donovan came rapidly up from sixth to pry Cavallaro from second on lap two.  She hotly pursued Lougee but was unable to close the gap. Meanwhile, Curtis Rolando worked up to Donovan’s bumper by lap five.  Two laps later, Lougee was enjoying a comfortable fifteen car lead as Donovan and Rolando worked each other over like a pair of middleweights over second. As Lougee disappeared ahead, they fought side-by-side for the runnerup spot.  Cavallaro and Kuhn followed with Shelby Donovan and Bowser dueling side-by-side. By lap 12, second was still a seesaw battle between Kaitlyn and Rolando when there was...

MORESHEAD RECLAIMS 600’S LEAD WITH FEATURE WIN

Thomas Moreshead, Jr. took advantage on a restart, and when  leader Evan Taylor came into turn four too hot and slid up the track, Moreshead nabbed the low road and rocketed into the lead on the tail end of lap nine.Moreshead powered on to a half-second win over Jessica O’Leary and .75 seconds ahead of third place, Matthew Barboza.  David White, who led the division going into the race, was fourth followed by outside polesitter, Joey Lembo. Taylor and Lembo came hot out of the box at the outset, going door-to-door for two laps before Eric Lebrun spun in turn  two, bringing out the caution.  On the lap two restart, they were wheel-to-wheel again as Kendra Levesque came up on the outside for a three-wide at the front of the field, with a  four-wide going on deep in the pack. O’Leary fell off and Cassie Meservey and Maddison Birchall jumped into the space behind them.  But as Birchall came by, Meservey got into her and she spun between turns one and two.  The fourteen cars following scattered to avoid, some spinning, but only Brandon Lillie and Birchall suffered damage.  They retired for the evening after just four laps. Three attempts were made to restart lap four.  The first two, officials struggled to get the very large field realigned and crossed over.  The length of time was primary reason that...
