BY SOUZA MEDIA
SEEKONK, Mass. — Reese Bogue is back in Victory Lane.
The Groton, Connecticut, driver took down his third win of 2020 after contact with Nick Chaber Jr. in the final laps in the Seekonk Grand Prix Bandolero Outlaw feature. The Fast Friday program continued with its first race in the month of September, still without fans due to COVID-19 restrictions from the state of Massachusetts.
Stephen Bowden jumped out to the early lead from his pole starting position and led the first four laps, before the first caution of the race flew. Under caution, Bowden’s car shutdown on him, sending him pit side for the remainder of the event. That would hand the lead to the No. 00 of Chaber, looking for his first win of the year.
On the restart, Chaber jumped out in front of Bogue, followed by the No. 22 of Isaiah Newcomb, and the No. 27 of Nicholaus Bulkeley. Chaber and Bogue battled intensely for the next eight laps, until lap 13, when Bogue made a move to the inside of Chaber and the two made contact entering turn one, giving Bogue the top spot as the caution waved.
Bogue outdueled Newcomb on the final restart in the final two laps to take the win, while Bulkeley was third, Chaber fourth and Joey Lemay fifth. Aubrey Keller was sixth, followed by Olivia Dardinski, Bowden and Brenden LaBelle.
The Seekonk Grand Prix Bandolero Outlaws will continue the 2020 season next Friday, September 11, with the first green flag of the evening at 7pm.
