Turck Holds Off Hoyt


Sprint Car Rookie Chad Turck held off fellow Rookie Matt Hoyt to win his first career Sprint Cars of New England Feature at Bear Ridge Speedway in a race that was slowed only once which turned into a red flag for Dan Douville, who flipped wildly off the top of turn three after catching a wheel midway through the 30 Lap Feature.

At the drop of the green flag Christine Boesch surged into the lead from her outside pole position. Meanwhile Chad Turck was working his way forward from his fourth starting position and eventually caught Boesch and took the lead fairly early in the event. Turck who held a comfortable lead when the red flag flew for Douville with 16 laps complete immediately stretched the lead when the green flag once again flew. Matt Hoyt was slowly reeling in Turck as the laps clicked off but when the duo encountered lapped traffic Hoyt came on like gangbusters. As Turck came to the white flag he bobbled after hitting some moisture kicked up in turn four and this allowed Hoyt into striking distance. As the duo powered out of turn four to the Checkers Hoyt momentarily took the lead on the outside lane but Turck was able to get enough bite in the low lane to rocket back by Hoyt and take the win. Hoyt finished a career best second with Scott Holcomb, who had a tremendous battle with Will Hull and Chris Donnelly for the position, third. Hull and Donnelly completed the top five.

Dan Douville and Chad Turck were the Heat Race winners with Douville also winning the Dash for Cash. Chris Donnelly was named the 2016 Sprint Cars of New England point Champion for Bear Ridge Speedway.
