For the second time in the first three weeks of the 2020 season, Connecticut native Reese Bogue was the class of the field in the Seekonk Grand Prix Bandelero Outlaws. Bogue, who started the race in fifth, followed early leader Brenden LaBelle for the first eight laps before taking the lead, and setting sail to the finish.
Week three of Fast Friday kicked-off the same way as the previous two, with restrictions in place for COVID-19 issued by the state of Massachusetts. Proper social distancing and mask wearing was maintained by track staff and competitors alike, with no spectators in attendance due to restrictions given by the state.
LaBelle and Giovanni Ruggiero brought the field down to the initial green flag, with Nicholas Chaber Jr. and Stephen Bowden making up row two. LaBelle jumped out to the early lead until a lap seven caution involving the No. 3 of Olivia Dardinkski slowed the field, bunching them back up for a restart.
LaBelle once again jumped out to the lead until his car snapped out from underneath him exiting turn four collecting Ruggiero, Bowden, Samantha Dell, previous winner Isaiah Newcomb and Nicholas Rose, who made hard contact with the turn four wall. On the ensuing restart, it was Bogue who had inherited the lead, with Chaber on his outside. Bogue jumped out front and began to pull away, while at the finish it was Bogue followed by Chaber, Dell, Labelle, and PJ Evans in fifth.
Aubrey Keller was sixth, Dardinkski was seventh, followed by Nicholaus Bulkeley, Rose and Newcomb. The Seekonk Grand Prix Bandelero Outlaws return to the Cement Palace on Friday August 7th, with the first green flag of the night at 7 p.m.
