NICK CHABER JR. TOPS FIELD IN BANDOLERO OUTLAWS
BY SOUZA MEDIA
SEEKONK, Mass. — Nick Chaber Jr. was finally able to taste victory at Seekonk Speedway. The driver of the No. 00 parked his Seekonk Grand Prix Bandolero Outlaw in Victory Lane on Friday, scoring his first career win.
With just three weeks left in the season, Seekonk race teams returned to the third-mile to continue the Everett’s Auto Parts Diamond Jubilee Series — with no fans in the grandstands due to COVID-19 regulations from the state of Massachusetts.
Chaber started from the pole position and led all 15 laps en route to the win — but he didn’t go un-challenged. Early, it was outside polesitter Stephen Bowden who looked for the top spot, but he couldn’t quite get enough momentum to find the way around. Just before the halfway point, Bowden and Reese Bogue locked bumpers at the end of the backstretch — and Bowden went spinning, collecting Brenden LaBelle and others.
After the green, Chaber held control out front — while Bogue tried everything he could to get the top spot. It wasn’t enough — as Chaber exited the blue No. 00 with the checkered flag, followed by Bogue and Isaiah Newcomb. Heading to the final two weeks, Chaber leads Newcomb by just six points in the championship standings.
Nickolaus Bulkeley and PJ Evans finished the top five. Aubrey Keller, Bowden, Olivia Dardinski, LaBelle and Joey LeMay finished the top-10.
The Seekonk Grand Prix Bandolero Outlaws return to the track with another 15-lap feature on Friday, October 2.
