Waterford Speedbowl’s Blastoff Weekend continued Sunday with the final six races of the event card being completed. Keith Rocco of Berlin dominated the day, turning in a memorable performance as he took a victory in all three events he entered. He reached the winner’s circle in the Valenti Modified Racing Series season opening race, joining his triumphs in the Speedbowl’s NASCAR Whelen All-American Series SK Modified® and Bob Valenti Auto Mall Late Model divisions to tie a 54-year old track record for number of victories in a single day. Other race wins on Sunday went to Josh Galvin of Franklin in the Street Stock race and Ian Brew of Wood River Junction in the Mini Stocks, while Avery Stoehr of Lakeville, MA continued a family tradition of winning in the Northeastern Midget Association feature.
Stock car racing returned to the Connecticut shoreline Saturday as Waterford Speedbowl hosted hundreds of racers for its annual Budweiser Blastoff event, part of a two-day blockbuster of racing. In total 13 race divisions saw action on the three-eighths mile oval, with seven feature races run Saturday evening. Rick Williams of Haddam scored a first-ever victory in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series SK Light Modified race. Westport’s Dylan Izzo continued his domination of the INEX Legend Cars division winning for the second straight week while Zach Thomas of New London and Jon Porter of Canterbury won for consecutive weeks in the X-Car and Super X-Cars, respectively. In touring series races, P.J. Stergios of Candia, NH won the NEMA Lite feature and Chris Turbush of Riverhead, NY won the New England Truck Series race. Oakdale’s Derek Debbis checkered the INEX Bandolero feature for the youth racing class.
Although they’ve been NASCAR stock car racing promoters for some five decades now Barbara & Jim Cromarty will take some added pride when they kick-off the 2014 race season at Riverhead Raceway the first weekend of May as it will mark the 30th year since they purchased the Route 58 facility from the Hawkins family. A huge opening weekend is set with seven divisions of NASCAR Whelen All-American Series set to compete on Saturday evening May 3rd with Sunday May 4th finding the cars and stars of the track’s Enduro series enjoying their opening day.
Despite the fact there is no official racing on the two annual pre-season practice days at Riverhead Raceway they are perhaps the two most anticipated days of the season for both competitors and fans alike and Saturday afternoon April 19th and 26th at Barbara & Jim Cromarty’s historic oval will be no exception. As the lunch siren sounds at 12 noon so will the first green flag of 2014 at Riverhead Raceway with the NASCAR stock cars and later in the day the Enduro cars testing and tuning and best of all the grandstand admission is FREE!
In life and on the track we have enemies. This is a fact of life and one we can’t dismiss.
It was a pretty good day for the contingent of Long Island drivers in the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour Icebreaker 150. Justin Bonsignore captured the win, the fourth of his career, and Timmy Solomito and Eric Goodale both scored top-five finishes.
Wins at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park don’t come easy and Justin Bonsignore earned a hard-fought one on Sunday.
It was a run eight years in the making that saw Woody Pitkat capture his first NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour Coors Light Pole Award as he topped the field in qualifying for Icebreaker 150 presented by Town Fair Tire Saturday at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park.
Each offseason brings change on the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour, but when the 2014 campaign begins with this week’s Icebreaker 150 presented by Town Fair Tire, there will be a host of newcomers and familiar faces in different places at Thompson (Conn.) SpeedwayMotorsportsPark.
