Editors Note: According to multiple reports, Ryan Preece was disqualified from the victory in post race tech for being too light, giving the victory to Justin Bonsignore.
Ryan Preece remained perfect with his new team on Friday night.
Preece had the field covered on the way to victory in the 35-lap Tour Type Modified feature Friday on opening night of the World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing at New Smyrna (Fla.) Speedway.
Preece, of Berlin, was making his second start for team owners Ed and Connie Partridge and the TS Haulers race team.
He won for the team in his debut at the North-South Shootout at Caraway Speeday in Sophia, N.C. last November.
Preece bolted to the front from the ninth starting position and easily drove away from second place finisher Justin Bonsignore of Holtsville, N.Y. on the final restart with two laps remaining.
“That’s probably the most pressure I’ve ever had coming into a racetrack,” Preece said. “… This car was awesome. A brand new Troyer car. R&D deal, it’s just a ton of forward bite. It rotates the center. That spec motor is awesome. I can’t thank these guys enough.”
J.R. Bertuccio of Centereach, N.Y. was third in the 15-car field.
