SEEKONK, Mass. — Jim Reilly had been fast all year, and on Friday, September 17, the driver of the No. 74 in the Helger’s South Coast Power Equipment Pure Stocks wasn’t going to be denied. Taking the lead on lap 10 and never looking back — minus one lap at the end where Timmy Ouellette edged him out by inches for the lead — Reilly was in control of the 25-lap feature en route to the trophy.
Celebrating a first career victory is very special, and for Reilly, he burned down the engine in turn one, posting an incredible smoke-show burnout for the fans after winning. Greg Perry charged through the field, extending his points lead in the class with a second-place finish, while Joey Morrissette returned to the podium one week after winning, finishing third. Ouellette grabbed the fourth spot, with Danny Massa in fifth.
Sam Lincoln had a strong run in sixth, while Mike Rotondo, Jordan Threlfall, Billy Chouinard and Matthew Talbot finished the top-10.
The Helger’s South Coast Power Equipment Pure Stocks have one more race left on their 2021 calendar — next Friday, September 24, with the annual DAV Fall Classic. Perry leads the point standings heading to the final race. For more information on Seekonk Speedway, visit SeekonkSpeedway.com and follow the track on social media.
