WEST HAVEN, VT – Healthy crowds of Hometown Heroes cheered on Devil’s Bowl Speedway competitors Saturday night including Sunoco Sportsman Modified driver Troy Audet who earned his second win of the season in the 30-lap main event. Cody O’Brien, Tim Aldrighetti, Adam LaFountain, Logan Dennis, and Matt Wade also earned victories on a night honoring first responders and military at the bowl.
Troy Audet and Brent Warren would lead the 28-car Sunoco Sportsman Modified field to the high-flying green silk flown by Bob Bigelow. The two drivers would swap the lead early, with Audet finally securing the top spot for good on lap eight with his G. Stone Commercial number 13A. Jimmy Davis gave chase in the East Coast Rubbish Removal 24 car racing from 10th to 2nd, but would run out of time.
Johnny Bruno driving his Bruno’s Towing 22 Bicknell was doing some shaking and moving racing his way forward from his 9th starting spot to inside the top five. Same for the Back Road Hair Styles Hair Salon 60W of Anthony Warren who raced his way to battle for position inside the top five. It would all happen behind Audet, as he’d win his second of the season. Jimmy Davis, Johnny Bruno, Walt Hammond Jr., and Anthony Warren completed the top five finishers.
Troy Audet, Austin Comes, and James Hanson were heat race winners. Marty Kelly III earned Elmo’s Pit Stop Bonus Bucks worth $100 via random draw at the pit meeting, while Vince Quenneville earned the CJ Richards Memorial Hard Charger honors, also worth a $100 bonus presented by Ed ‘Elmo’ Allen and the folks from Elmo’s Pit Stop. Quenneville started 23rd and raced his way to 9th.
Twin 20’s for the O’Reilly Auto Parts Limited Sportsman division meant double the action. Springfield, VT driver Cody O’Brien raced from his 5th starting spot to the win in Twin 20 number 1. He was followed by ‘Santa’ Bob Kilburn, Gary English, Jason Quenneville, and Randy Ryan who completed the top five finishers.
In O’Reilly Auto Parts Limited Sportsman twin 20 number 2 it was Bethel, VT driver Tim Aldrighetti who raced his way to victory lane after starting 6th at the drop of the green. He was followed by John Gosselin, William Duprey, Hunter Nutter, and Alex Layn who completed the top five at races end.
Mike McGinn, Cody O’Brien, and Josh LeClaire earned heat race victories.
Adam LaFountain earned victory in the 20-lap Hoosier Daddy Racing Rookie Sportsman main event. The Starksboro, VT racer started 4th, took the lead on lap 4, and never looked back. Kamden Duffy, Daryl Gebo, Josh Bussino, and Holden Bass would round out the top five at races end.
Holden Bass and Adam LaFountain were heat race winners.
Matt Wade claimed victory in the 15-lap Mini Stock A-Main. It’s his first win this season and comes at a good time considering the Fair Haven, VT driver is currently 3rd in championship point standings. He would be followed by Adam Mahoney, Chris Sumner, Chase Allen, and Jake Barrows who completed the top five finishers.
Griff Mahoney, Chris Sumner, and Austin McKirryher were heat race winners. Nick Melotti won the 10-lap Mini Stock B-Main.
Current point leader Logan Dennis raced his way to another Friend Construction 15-lap 500cc Mini Sprint feature win on Hometown Heroes night. It was his second victory of the season helping extend the point lead for the Whiting, VT driver. Rounding out the top five finishers were Chayton Young, Lane Saville, Chris Lennox, and Kevin Smith.
Lane Saville and Gage Provencher were heat race winners.
