This Week at the Action Track of the East!

THIS WEEK AT THE ACTION TRACK: Welcome back race fans! Last weekend we saw some great racing action on both our Fast Friday and Super Saturday program. Friday, it was a thrilling battle in the SYRA 750 that really grabbed my eyes. The field battled three and four wide on multiple occasions and Taylor Bowser made some impressive moves in route to her first win of the season. Congrats go out to her and her dad on a job well done. The Pit Party on Saturday was a huge success. It was great to see the fans down on the track showing support for the drivers and grabbing some of the candy that the drivers brought to show their thanks. Kudos to all involved in making that happen and all of the fans for coming out. It was also great to see Manny Dias return to Street Stock Victory Lane after a long, LONG layoff. Congrats go out to Manny and his crew on an awesome setup and drive on the track. Congrats to TJ Thompson in the Legend Cars and Charlie Rose in the Late Models for winning Triple Crown races last weekend as well. Now.. Onto this week at the Action Track… The Fast Friday series will continue with round one of the Phil’s Propane Triple Crown Series for the Pure Stock class along with the Brad Scott Memorial. Those drivers come to the track each and every week fighting for every inch they can get and put on a thrilling show. With the added five laps and the added incentive to try and chase the Triple... read more

Houlihan, Dias, Belcher & Rose Take Home NWAAS Wins!

HOULIHAN AVOIDS CARNAGE, TAKES FEATURE WIN Dick Houlihan stayed at the front, used every bit of the horsepower and handling Len Ellis provided him and came home at the head of a field which lost 45 percent of its participants by race’s end. Houli chased Dave Hutchins, Sr. across the initial sixteen laps – in fact, he worked the outside lane for the span before he gathered up an extra bit of speed to finally surge to the front and take over for good. At mid-race, fast and dangerous Ryan Lineham hauled the Rollie Lindblad special in on Houlihan’s bumper and the distance between them could have been measured in mere inches for the remainder of the race. Lineham was just .290 seconds in arrears at the finish. With seven laps remaining, Angelo Belsiot (who had started at the midpoint of the 20-car field) was able to get past Hutch for third and the previous race’s winner, Kevin Casper, pulled in for fifth. Thinning of the field began seconds after Houlihan had dropped in behind Hutchins on lap one. An accordion effect from a loose setup at midpack sent Ryan Vanasse climbing atop Kyle Casper’s nose coming out of turn 3. They sat, piled like pancakes in the third groove. They were lifted apart and taken to the pits. Casper was done for the night, but miraculously Vanasse was back in time for the restart. On the restart, Hutch popped out ahead of Houlihan, who elected to fight it out from the second groove. Kevin Folan continuously rushed up to Hutchins’ bumper, preventing Houlihan from dropping in.

Marvin, Miranda, Bowser, Baxter & Thompson Take Fast Friday Wins!

  TJ THOMPSON IRREPRESSIBLE IN LEGENDS TJ Thompson blasted off the launch pad in the laps-added Phil’s Propane Triple Crown Legends feature and made his way rapidly to the lead by lap eight to deprive the speedy polesitter Chris Robbins of the lead. By then, he was supersonic and outran the field to the finish, increasing his lead slowly to better than 25 cars at the finish: a 2.156 second margin of victory over Jordan Lamothe, who has dominated the first two features in the young Fast Fridays season. The event, which was also a qualifier for this year’s Legends Nationals, had a host of hotshoes battling at the front, also including Jesse Melberg, Brandon “Batman” Martinez, Brandon Packard, John O’Sullivan and Jesse Jakubajtys. The front ten was a riot of cars battling for position and exchanging places. Robbins and Packard came off the pole and dueled before Robbins ground to the front. Jakubajtys followed but Matt Carpenter dived under into third and then Martinez ducked in to run wheel-to-wheel. Caution flew going into lap four as division champ Nick Lascuola spun in turn four. Curt Snow was unable to avoid a collision and a hard hit ensued. Both vehicles were eliminated by the wreck. Lascuola, who had missed the heats due to his high school graduation, had moved rapidly from the end of the field to 16th, passing 3 cars per lap. Robbins and Packard lined up for the lap 3 restart. But Thompson was now low in the row behind them and did a quick look under Robbins after following him through under Packard. They came door-to-door... read more

This Week @ The Action Track of the East!

Article by Kyle Souza What a weekend we have on tap! This weekend the track will hold round one of the Phil’s Propane Triple Crown Series for the Nick’s Pit Stop Legend Cars on Fast Friday. It will be the second weekend of the Triple Crown Series action for our Fast Friday divisions. For me, the Legends Triple Crown races are some of the most exciting events the track has to offer during the course of the season. They provide side by side racing with some of the young guns here at the track that are looking for a breakthrough ride into a Saturday night division. Nick Lascuola may make a few appearances in these events this season and he will easily be a favorite. The defending champion competed last week and came laps away from a victory before contact sent him to the rear end of the field. Who will be the one to capture the checkers in the 30-lap feature event? Was it not great last week to see Mike Duarte grab a win in the Sports Trucks? He has been fast all season long and it was great to finally see him breakthrough and grab his first winning flag. Congrats go out to Richard Savary as well. He came into Seekonk and stormed through the field to collect the win in the Valenti Modified Racing Series 100. Catch the modifieds back at Seekonk once again on Wednesday July 1. On Saturday, we have the on track pit party going on before the racing begins at 4:00 PM. This is one of my favorite nights of the... read more

Duarte, Vanasse, Potter & Savary In Victory Lane!

DUARTE LEADS TRUCKS GREEN TO CHECKERS FOR FIRST CAREER WIN Mike Duarte took off from the field out of turn two on lap one and refused to relinquish the front for the balance of the race, even when challenged by the likes of Rob Murphy and John Paiva. But Paiva and Murphy engaged in a deadly duel over second, and Duarte used the opportunity to pull out to a lead, which at times was as great as 20 cars, this on lap 16. The deadly exchange between Murphy and Paiva continued through the end of the race. Duarte was able to apply the speed his 50 truck has come to be known by and rush in 2.69 seconds ahead of Murphy. Paiva ran in a half-second later with David Lougee and Darryl Church rounding out the top five. Duarte started off inside Church on the front row. Church got the jump out of the box, but Duarte lit the afterburners and had the lead coming out of turn two as Murphy moved into third. Cavallaro got past Belcher and then under Paiva onto Murphy’s tailgate. By lap four, Duarte and Church had a five-car margin on Murphy, Cavallaro et al. But Cavallaro, in the heat of battle went around between turns two and three on lap six. Testifying to his aggravation, he made a charge at Murphy as the latter passed him on caution laps but did not make contact. The field came away with Duarte and Church door-to-door until turn two, when Duarte resumed the lead, but one lap later, Cavallaro spun into turn four. Shawn DeMello made... read more

Lebrun, Kulpa, Westgate, Desrosiers & Lamothe Take Fast Friday Wins

LEBRUN GOES FRONT TO BACK TO FRONT FOR 600 WIN Luke LeBrun saw the whole field in his SYRA 600 win: he kicked off the feature by taking the front from the pole position, outdistancing Anthony Marvin, then spun out of turn four to find himself at the rear of the field. He worked his way back to fourth behind Alexandra Lillie, Scott Serydynski, Jr and last week’s winner, Karlin Levesque, who was leading. Serydynski, troubling Levesque for the front, came loose in turn two, tagged Levesque and a mad scramble ensued, with Lillie involved and LeBrun eking his way around the swarm – and onto the pole for the restart. Levesque was pit-bound for the evening. Race officials warned the competitors that any further cautions would end the race, already long with restarts on the opening lap, laps 3, 5, 6, and two tries at lap 12. The lap 16 restart saw LeBrun escape Marvin, who surged back up before Luke took control out of turn two. Marvin continued to try to wrest the lead away, but Charette got into Serydynski and was around as Marvin chased LeBrun over the stripe under the yellow/checkered flags, ending the race. Marissa Morgan escaped and crossed in third, while Charette nabbed fourth. Lillie ducked through for fifth. Serydinski was able to hold on to his car and finished sixth, the last car running. LeBrun had stormed out of the box with Marvin alongside at the outset, finally gaining the advantage in turn one. Lillie got under Marvin into second with Serydynski giving chase and Marvin falling in behind him. Morgan and... read more

Casper, Paiva & Arrenegado take home Saturday Night NASCAR Wins. Douton Wins NESST!

  ONE LEADER, 40 LAPS, 9 MINUTES – BIG PRO WIN FOR KEVIN CASPER It was a match-race: Kevin Casper vs. Dick Houlihan for forty laps of nonstop action. They were the front row as the green fell. They were 1-2 when the checkers waved. None of the other 21 starters got past third place in the 9 minutes it took to run as they ran across the stripe just three-tenths of a second apart. Radical Rick Martin roared over another .4 back and Angelo Belsito clocked in a second later and Tom Scully, Jr. closed out the top five just one more second off the pace. Casper and Houli had served notice in their heat races, each taking the top spot in their respective challenges. They came out loaded for bear, leaving the box door-to-door with Kevin nosing ahead. But as he’s known to do in turns one and two, Houlihan evened that back up and it wasn’t until turn four that Casper was able to scrabble his way into the lead. Mike Mitchell took a look under Houlihan, but he fired up and pulled away as as Alex Melnicki headed to the pits with problems which sidelined him for the night. Kevin scooted out to a four-car lead while Martin pursued Mitchell and was in turn shadowed by Mike Brightman and Scully. Seven laps in, Houlihan had narrowed Casper’s lead to just a carlength while Brightman, Scully and Dave Darling were running nose-to-tail over fiffh place. Ryan Vanasse was clinging steadfastly to eighth place ahead of Craig Weinstein, Kenny Spencer, Belsito and Fred Astle, all running in... read more

Lamothe, Kun, Levesque, Westgate & Toner Win Opening Day Fast Friday Style!

  LAMOTHE SLICES TO OPENING NIGHT LEGENDS WIN Jordan Lamothe wasted no time in showing the opening night crowd at Fast Friday Night’s opener that he hasn’t lost any of last year’s speed in a slicing duel with a quick crew of challengers and coming out ahead by a quarter-second. Jesse Mel berg was snarling at his bumper for the final ten laps, making the journey an uncomfortable one, but Jordan held him off to the checkers. Also slicing in on the hunt and giving Melberg fits over the closing laps was John O’Sullivan, who roared into the fray on Melberg’s tailfeathers. Colin Haley had hardly been outside the top five all evening, and he snarled into the dogfight for the final eight circuits to score fourth place, just ahead of Jake Johnson. Chris Robbins inaugurated the excitement by leaping off the pole with Nick Wisialko trying to keep pace while Mel berg and Lamothe pursued from the second row, Lamothe working the second groove on the wide side. Haley stole fifth from O’Sullivan and chased Lamothe while Melberg elevated from second and set course to intercept Robbins, who had a ten car lead by lap four. By lap six, the duo was lapping the tail end of the pack. Lamothe disengaged from the field and tore after Robbins and Melberg as they began navigating dense lapped traffic. The overtaken were a problem on lap 12 as Brandon Martinez was trapped by a slow-mover. Martinez and Haley were running fifth and sixth but the tangle had Haley in a spin to bring caution. Melberg and Robbins roared out of... read more
