UHRIG TAKES PURE STOCKS FROM GREEN TO CHECKERs

Pure Stock champion for 2010, Nick Uhrig of Warwick, RI, leapt off the pole and led the field from start to finish.  Jamie Salley of Taunton, MA, gave chase from the outside pole to the checkers, but could not overhaul the champ on his way to the DAV win.  Ed Flanagan Jr. from Warwick finished third.  Rounding out the top ten were Mark Boisvert, Uxbridge, Ma, Amy Arsenault, Concord, NC, Earl Curtin III West Warwick, RI, Bill Chouinard Swansea, MA, Randy Moretti West Warwick, Doug Benoit, Swansea, MA, and Kent Hopkins, East Taunton, MA. Uhrig went to the lead off the green with Salley on his shoulder, battling.  Flanagan tried to get underneath, but Salley kept it side-by-side with Uhrig and Flanagan fell back.  Bill Chouinard followed with Moretti and Curtin behind. On lap 6, with Salley clinging to Uhrig’s back bumper, Joe Carpenter had the rim fly off his car in turn 2 and over the wall, putting the 51 car into a spin.  He went off on the hook and was gone for the duration. On the restart, Uhrig and Salley again were door-to-door at the front and they battled at the green.  Uhrig claimed the lead in turn 4.  Flanagan briefly held second, but Salley would not yield and reclaimed the spot.  Brendan Lord spun to the grass on lap 12, As Uhrig again grabbed the front on the backstretch after the restart, Moretti looped...

RUSS WOOD TAKES NEMA LITES

One week after a difficult time with the old Cement Palace and finishing 19th in his ISMA Supermodified race, Russ Wood returned to Seekonk for the D. Anthony Venditti Memorial, hopped into his son’s NEMA Lite car and went out to dominate the field of competitors.  Russ Wood, Jr. was forced out of the event by a foot injury, so dad gladly filled the seat for him.  It was a win-win situation for Russ, Sr. and the fans. Wood, from Pelham, NH, started fifth, behind Paul Bigelow of Berlin, CT and Ryan Bigelow of East Hampton, CT.   New Ipswich, NH’s Andy Barrows and East Hampton, CT driver Randy Bigelow made up the second row.   Joe Krawiek was on Wood’s shoulder.   Also swelling the ranks were NEMA regulars Randy Cabral and Lou Cicconi, Jr. – both starting from the back of the pack. Wood jumped to third on the green and motored for 6 laps, while Paul Bigelow and Barrows battled over third.  On lap 6, Wood erupted, going around and into the lead, sending Bigelow to second.  Bigelow held the spot until Cabral came up to pass on lap 18. Wood began to stretch his lead, and was ahead by the length of a straightaway on lap 12.  Cabral and Cicconi were trading places back in the pack until Cabral began to move steadily to the front, going from eighth to second, moving up a place per...

BOTELHO NABS NEMA CROWN AT DAV

Attleboro driver Keith Botelho came back to the sport and midget racing after a long layoff, in a veteran car with a veteran motor and a veteran crew.  The combination spelled victory for him as he took the lead away from John Zych, Jr. on lap 9 and lead the remaining 16 laps to the finish.  “I was expecting somebody to come by me,” said Botelho of the surprising ease of his victory.   “I knew Cicconi was back there and I was waiting for him or somebody else to come rolling by.”  Nobody could do it, and Botelho found himself in Victory Lane at race’s end. Greg Stoehr from Bridgewater, MA, took second and Zych finished third.  Rounding out the top 10 were:  Chris Leonard of Pelham, NH., Chris Deritis of Philadelphia, Anthony Nocella of Woburn, MA, Chris Abold of Pennellville, NY, Cicconi of Ashton, PA, Jim Miller of Weymouth, MA, and Russ Stoehr of Bridgewater.  Russ Stoehr and Randy Cabral had come into the event with Cabral trailing the points leader by 22 points and Cabral had high hopes of gaining on Stoehr. But lap 4 trouble with a flat left front tire sidelined him from the race, dropping him to 21stoverall with just one event remaining in the NEMA season:  the World Series at Thompson Speedway in Connecticut next weekend. Zych, from Liverpool, NY, leapt off the pole and led the first nine circuits on the 63-year-old...

LATE MODEL CHAMP VANASSE WINS LATE MODELS

Tiverton, RI driver Ray Parent went to the front on lap 9 of the 50-lap Late Model feature at the DAV Memorial race, then led the rest of the 50 laps to the finish, only to be disqualified during post race tech inspection. That left the rest of the story in Ryan Vanasse’s hands.  The reigning divisional champ, from Warwick, RI, had chased Parent from the midpoint of the race to the finish and was waiting in the wings.  Colbey Fournier from Berkley, MA, ran a strong second half to run home on Vanasse’s coattails, followed by Somerset’s Kyle Casper. Gerry DeGasparre, Jr, Pawtucket, RI, Robert Pelland III, Cranston, RI, Matt Breault, Acushnet, MA, Mike Cavallaro, Seekonk, MA, Robert Hussey, Wellfleet, MA, John Paiva, Fall River, MA and Kevin Folan, Attleboro, MA, rounded out the top ten on the afternoon. Folan started on the pole with Bridgewater’s Jimmy Rosenfield on his outside. DeGasparre and Parent were behind them and Middleboro’s Randy Burr and Vanasse made up the third row on the grid.  Pelland and Cavallaro followed.  Folan jumped off the pole but Pelland spun in turn one, collecting Dennis Stange, Paiva and Kyle DeSouza.  Stange had extreme damage to his right front, and the right front wheel hung askew, and had to be towed to the pits.  The wreck ended his participation.  New to the division, Crystal Serydynski (moving up from Street Stocks) and Dylan Estrella (from...
