Ricky Sanville became the first driver to win multiple Features in the O'Reilly Auto Parts Twilight Racing Series at The Legion Speedway Friday night by claiming the win in the Peanut's Auto Sportsman Modifieds. Matt Pike was victorious in the Homestead Creations Sportsman Late Models with Mike Lique claiming the top spot in the Rand's Hardware Outlaw Mini Stocks. The visiting Granite State Mini Sprints saw Willie Pinkham Jr best of the 500cc Class with former Champion Tony Shaw claiming the 600cc Victory.
The Sportsman Modified main event saw Richie Gilpatrick fire from the outside pole and lead the first lap. By the completion of lap two Ricky Sanville blasted to the point from his fourth starting spot, never to be seriously challenged for the remainder of the event to take the win. The battle for second was intense during the early part of the Feature with no less than four different drivers holding the spot. That all changed when Ryan Christian, who started last, claimed the spot with about 10 laps to go. Christian slowly reeled in Ricky Sanville but ran out of time to finish second. Jeff Huntington was third in his first appearance of the season with Jason Sanville and David Heath completing the top five.
Matt Pike took advantage of reigning track Champion Doug Boucher's misfortune to take the victory in a rough and tumble Homestead Creations Sportsman Late Model Feature. Bob Crawford Jr. led from the drop of the green leading until the first of numerous cautions. On the restart Boucher took the top spot and started to runaway from the field, but he was the next caution as he went up in smoke. This handed the lead to Matt Pike who held the top spot the rest of the way to take the win. Travis Smith came from the rear after being involved in the first caution to take second with Toby Stark a steady third. Bob Crawford Jr and Curtis Leeman rounded out the top five.
The Rand's Hardware Outlaw Mini Stocks saw Mike Lique take advantage of his front row starting spot to lead every lap on his way to the victory. Last week's winner, Erin Vien came from mid pack to finish second with Eric Castiglioni third. Sean Lantas finished fourth with Jack Cook fifth.
The Granite State Mini sprints were the added attraction this week. The 500cc event saw Willie Pinkham Jr fly to the front, taking the top spot from his 10th starting position with just five laps complete, going on to take the win. Peter Belliveau was second with Riley Chaffee third. In the 600cc Feature Tony Shaw took advantage of the races only caution to take the lead and run to the win. Veteran Dick Lamotte was second with Zack Herbert taking third.
This Friday night joining the regular divisions of the O'Reilly Auto Parts Twilight Racing Series will be both the Granite State Mini Sprints and the Wingless Auto Group. As always post time is 7:00PM
The Legion Speedway is located on Route 25 at the Rumney/Wentworth, NH Town line. Racing on Friday Nights!
