Ryan Avery Best at Legion, Kevin Chaffee Wins at Bear Ridge


The Sprint Cars of New England competed in another double-header weekend with a makeup Feature Friday night at the Legion Speedway and a regularly scheduled event at the Bear Ridge Speedway Saturday night.

Friday night at the Legion Speedway at the drop of the green in the feature Christine Boesch bolted into the lead from the outside pole position with Dennis McLeod following her into second. Boesch set a fast pace pulling away from the rest of the field while McLeod's night ended on the 6th lap as he suffered a mechanical failure that dropped him from second to the infield, his night done. At this point in the event Ryan Avery, who started sixth on the field claimed second and started to close the gap on Boesch. Two laps later Boesch's fine run came to an end as she tangled with a car while lapping it, not only costing her the lead but forcing Boesch to drop from the event as well. This proved to be the only caution of the night and when the race went back to green Ryan Avery assumed the lead with Clay Dow moving into the second spot. A great battle for third ensued with Will Hull finally claiming the spot from Tyler Austin with three laps remaining in the Feature. When the Checkers flew, it was Ryan Avery with his second win of the season. Clay Dow was second with Will Hull third. Tyler Austin was fourth with Kevin Chaffee crossing the line in fifth.

Saturday night at Bear Ridge Speedway the Feature event was delayed by rain and the associated track prep to get the track raceable. The track turned out fast! Dennis McLeod took the lead at the onset followed by Christine Boesch. The duo pulled away from the field until lapped cars came into play slowing their progress. Kevin Chaffee was the man on the move and took advantage of a little indecision on McLeod's part and blasted by Boesch, McLeod and the car being lapped at the same time by using the outside groove to take the lead. The race's first caution came for the duo of Patrick Smith and Chris Donnelly, who ended up hooked together in turn three. By this point in the event Tyler Austin had moved to second with Luke Greenwood lurking in third. On the ensuing green Chaffee put the hammer down and pulled away from the rest of the field and went on to take the win., Luke Greenwood with a late move claimed second with Tyler Austin third. When the checkers flew it was Kevin Chaffee with the win, Luke Greenwood second and Tyler Austin third. Matt Hoyt was fourth and Chris Donnelly fifth.

Coming up next for the Sprint Cars of New England is Wingless Weekend August 4th at The Legion Speedway and August 5th at The Bear Ridge Speedway.
