  Sparky Arsenault chased John Hanafin for the lead over the first dozen laps of the 30-lap feature in the D. A. Venditti Memorial, then stuffed his Sportsman underneath to grab the lead. And he never looked back, running hard to the checkers for the coveted season’s-end win. Had he checked his mirror, he’d have seen trouble: two laps later, 2017 champ Scott Bruneau was all over Sparky’s bumper, and he stayed all over it until Ryan Flood made a bold move to snare second on the event, relegating the tenacious Bruneau to third. It was a good day...

DAV Fall Classic Saturday Recap With Kyle Souza

  With $6,000 up for grabs, we knew plenty of outside invaders would enter Seekonk Speedway on Saturday afternoon hoping to capture the big check and the D.A.V. Fall Classic trophy. Names like Derek Griffith, Eddie MacDonald and Wayne Helliwell rolled into the third-mile and all were competitive in practice. However, when it came time to write the check, it was two of Seekonk’s weekly regulars that would battle side-by-side for the final laps. David Darling, who had dominated the division all season with eight feature wins, had to hold off a hard-charging Ryan Vanasse in the final circuits...
