Hull Blasts to Season Opening Victory


After rain postponed the season opener at Legion Speedway last week the Sprint Cars of New England rolled into the Bear Ridge Speedway for the season opening event.

Pole sitter Tyler Austin took the lead at the drop of the green but had to fend off a two lap challenge from Lacey Hanson before solidly taking the top spot. His run up front didn't last long however as Will Hull was on the move in his new Maxim Chassis. Hull took advantage of a lap five restart and blasted into the lead from his third position. From there Hull built a substantial lead only to have the lead wiped out by a lap 19 caution for Luke Greenwood, who coasted to a stop on the backstretch. Hull bolted back to the lead on the restart while Kevin Chaffee worked his way from his 12th starting spot up to the second position. A final caution appeared setting up a two lap sprint to the finish. On the restart Hull once again motored away although Chaffee kept it close at the finish with early leader Tyler Austin finishing third. Clay Dow and Jake Williams completed the top five.
