Submitted by: Alan Ward on 2017-08-07 at 21:36
Peanut's Auto Sportsman Modified rookie Tanner Siemons took advantage of his pole position start to claim his first victory in a Sportsman Modified. Toby Stark made a late race pass to take the win in the Homestead Creation Sportsman Late Models with Rich Willey picking up the win in the Rand's Hardware Outlaw Mini Stocks. The Sprint Cars of New England were also on hand and it was wingless weekend. Kevin Chaffee dominated to take the win.
When the green flag flew in The Peanut's Auto Sportsman Modifieds rookie Tanner Siemons jumped into the lead from the pole position but the yellow flew before a single circuit was complete for Jeff Huntington. On the restart Siemons once again moved to the front with Jason Sanville in tow. The yellow flew for the last time only three laps later for Richie Gilpatrick. Once again on the restart Siemons held off the advances of Jason Sanville. Sanville did not make it easy for the rookie Siemons as he challenged for the lead on numerous occasions but could not complete the pass. When the Checkers flew it was Tanner Siemons with the win. Jason Sanville was second with Ricky Sanville bouncing back from flipping last week to finish third. Wayne Stearns and Jeff Huntington rounded out the top five.
The start of the Homestead Creations Sportsman Late Model Feature saw Hunter Nutter power into the lead from the pole position when the field took the green. Nutter held the top spot for three circuits before Bob Crawford worked his way by Nutter to take the lead. The caution flew for the first time with ten laps complete. On the restart Crawford once again powered into the lead and at the same time Toby Stark disposed of Nutter for second. Just a couple of laps later Stark started applying intense pressure to Crawford as he look to take the lead.. Stark was finally able to overtake Crawford for the lead with just four laps to go and go on to take the win. Bob Crawford finished a very strong second with Hunter Nutter third, Matt Pike fourth and Travis Smith fifth.
Rich Willey led all fifteen laps of the Rand's Hardware Outlaw Mini Stock Feature but it was no easy victory for him. The race featured five caution flags and on each restart Willey was able to retain the lead, no easy feat as over the course of the race five different competitors ran in the second spot, trying to unseat Willey. When the checkers finally flew it was Rich Willey with the win, Tyler Stygles was second in his first appearance of the year with Tim St. John third. Nick Comeau and Erin Aiken rounded out the top five.
The Sprint Cars of New England were wingless for the night in an event that was absolutely dominated by Kevin Chaffee. At the drop of the green Christine Boesch took the top spot on only held it for part of a lap before spinning in front of the field which resulted in a multi car pileup. On the restart Kevin Chaffee, who started initially in the 8th position, blasted into the lead never to really be challenged. Dan Douville was the man on the move as by lap five he had moved from his 12th starting spot to claim second. A late race restart after a Matt Hoyt flip found Douville picking the wrong line and fading back through the field. When the checkers flew it was Kevin Chaffee with the win, Clay Dow claimed second with Ryan Avery third. Will Hull was fourth and Dan Douville hung on for fifth.
