Another driver is added to the winner’s circle in the Sabil & Sons DIRTcar Sportsman Modifieds as Matt Lashua was able to capitalize on his up-front starting spot and get by the handful of drivers ahead of him for his first win of the season. These points battle if it continues on its path will see Jason Gray the champ as he is sitting on a seventy-point lead over second place Richie Simmons. The battle for second is shaping up to be a very tight one with only eight points separating second from fifth. Mike Dunn and Allan Hammond, the initial green front row held on for second and third for the victory lane spots with Matt Lashua. Todd Buckwold coming from deeper in the pack crossed the line fourth and Jeremy Huntoon takes home fifth.

There were some very happy new faces in victory in the Wells River Chevrolet DIRTcar Sportsman Coupes. While Tad Kingsbury coming off a rough couple of weeks was able to make the track work for him and thankful the feature event was thirty-five laps and not thirty, as he took the lead on lap thirty-two from Cody Copeland the only leader up to that point. Kingsbury gets the win with Copeland in second, and Copeland teammate Ali Pushee with his best finish ever filling the final victory lane spot in third. Tim Martin and Todd Hayward completed the top five. For the Coupes there is still plenty of racing action left and while there is a slight advantage building up for the current point leader, with this division anyone can have a good night or bad and things will change. Again the third place spot is the one building momentum with only ten points separating sixth from third.

In the USAC DMA Midgets Seth Carlson is another one to get the win of the night and take over the points lead giving himself a slight lead over Joe Krawiec who fell to second in points with his seventh-place finish. The Battle shaping up in this class looks to be that for 5th in points as only two separate the three drivers in 5th thru 7th. Justin Sheridan is scored in second place for the victory lane ceremonies with Josh Sunn grabbing the final victory lane spot. Brandon Piastka and Mike Chaffee with his best finish in a long time rounded out the top five.

It has only taken him four years, but determination finally paid off for Garrett Brown as he finally was able to cross the line first under the checkered flag in the Peanuts Auto LLC Four Cylinders. Tight on his tails was Jonathan Baker in second and Devin Spinks in third. Jon LaForest and Kevin LaForest completed the top five. Chris O’Dell is another first-time winner in the Fours as he beats out Travis King and Blake Buccellato the three to make it to victory lane.
