Here’s how New England drivers did at Watkins Glen, NY and Nashville, TN….

Parker Kligerman of Westport, CT had to be really pleased with taking a fifth place in the NASCAR Camping World Track race at The Glen on Saturday

Ernie Heim won Friday’s ARCA Menards Series at The Glen.  Not so fortunate was former Rockland, MA native Dale Quarterley who crashed out and ended his day in 25th place.
Saturday’s Camping World NASCAR Truck Series was won by Austin Hill.  Parker Kligerman of Westport, CT ended his day happy with a fifth place. Kligerman started the event in 38th place on the grid.  Kligerman also works as a color announcer at various NASCAR events.  He did just that by being part of the announcing team for the Xfinity Series race later on that afternoon.  Also, Boston’s Kaz Grala qualified 23rd and ended up in 12th place at the finish!
The Watkins Glen road course also held a NASCAR Xfinity race which was taken by Ty Gibbs.  Brett Moffitt in Chris Our entry ended his day in 26th place. Cape Cod’s Chris Our is in the construction business and makes his home in Harwich, MA.
Sunday’s NASCAR Cup race at The Glen saw Kyle Larson hold off Chase Elliott to record his fifth win of the season.  It was a tough day for the New England racing contingent.  Usually, a top five finisher, Joey Logano of Middletown, CT did all he could do to finish 22nd.  Corey LaJoie, son of Randy LaJoie, a two-time Xfinity Champion from Norwalk, CT, was 24th. Anthony Alfredo of Ridgefield, CT finished 26th while Ryan Preece of Berlin, CT placed 28th.
Among the missing in Saturday’s Xfinity race at Watkins Glen was Santino Ferrucci of Woodbury, CT who was focused on his Indy Car ride at Nashville, TN.  Santino started 17th in Sunday’s Music City GP and finished 11th.
