The New London- Waterford Speedbowl’s premier division was back in action Saturday night. The race was the usual 35 laps and this week 24 cars started the feature.
Adam Gada and Ted Christopher were on the front row for the start. It didn’t take Christopher long to get out to the front and take over the lead.
This race was riddled with cautions ending with 6 total cautions. Last week during the twin SK Modified features T.C. was wrecked in both of them. This week he was able to pull off the ultimate feat, this man came back with a fixed race car, win the heat race that he was a part of and then end up winning the main event.
T.C. led every lap of the race and this was his first win in the 2016 season at the Speedbowl. “Last week was a little rough, a huge thanks goes out to these guys (Diego Monahan and Keith Rocco) for running me clean. In last week well that was just a bunch of bull crap racing if you ask me. Tonight we had and awesome car, to have success here you have to have a great car and tonight that’s exactly what we had… Success.” Said Ted Christopher.
Late Models Get Double Feature
The New London- Waterford Speedbowl was back in action Saturday July 2, 2016 with twin Late Model features.
The first of the two 25 lap features was the first race of the night and the second was the last feature of the night.
Feature 1 started with Chris Garside and Keith Rocco on the front row. It didn’t take Rocco long to get to the lead. Throughout the entire race there was good battles between Ray Christian III, Jason Palmer, Garside, and Brian Tagg.
This race only had two cautions, neither of them phased Rocco as he was able to hold down the lead through both of them. Rocco was the winner of the race, it was his first time in Victory Lane with the Late Model since May 7th.
“Anthony Flannery was closing in on us. Had there been a few more laps he probably would have had the lead. The car was getting tight, we’ll adjust it some and try to come from the back to do it all again.” Said Rocco.
The second Late Model feature was later that evening. The second 25 lap feature had Garside and Jeff Smith on the front row. Smith got to the lead early during the first lap but, only a few laps later Anthony Flannery got the lead away.
This race had no cautions and Flannery had no troubles getting away from the field. The goal for Flannery was to win both races, he was close to reaching that goal with a second place in the first feature and a win in the second.
“We all work hard on the car all week and to get the win was pretty awesome.” Said Flannery.
