By Souza Media/Kyle Souza
SEEKONK, Mass. — Adam Pettey seems to have figured out his No. 57 in the Helger’s South Coast Power Equipment Sportsman just at the right time.
He sealed his second straight victory to end the season with a checkered flag in the DAV Fall Classic on Saturday, September 25, scoring the win in the special Helger’s Sportsman 50.
In honor of Donate Life, NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Sportsman competitors competed in their longest race in recent memory, and it wasn’t one that disappointed. Pettey jumped out to the lead early, but had to hold off the challenges of some of the best in the division over the final half of the race, including champion Chad Baxter, who scored a second-place finish to end the year in the final tally.
Ed Perry was third, followed by Craig Pianka and Corey Fanning, who finished the top-five. Scott Serydysnki Jr. was sixth, sealing the Rookie of the Year honors, while Doug Benoit was seventh, Tim Watson eighth, Cody Tripp ninth and Tyler Almeida 10th.
The Helger’s South Coast Power Equipment Sportsman season is now complete. The schedule for the 2022 season will be released over the winter months. For more information on Seekonk Speedway, visit SeekonkSpeedway.com and follow the track on social media.
