Dylan Izzo celebrates his first career SK Modified victory Saturday at the New London-Waterford Speedbowl

WATERFORD – The simple story is that Dylan Izzo led every lap of the second NASCAR Whelen All-American Series SK Modified feature Saturday at the New London-Waterford Speedbowl.

The story that simple description doesn’t describe though is just what Izzo had to hold off to get his first career SK Modified victory at the track.

Izzo had to hold off a charging Ted Christopher after a restart with five laps remaining, but the Monroe driver held on to win the second 35-lap SK Modified feature Saturday at Waterford.

Christopher, of Plainville, was second and Bo Gunning of Bethlehem third.

“I’m trying to hold back the tears,” Izzo said. “I just beat some of the best guys out here. … This is just so surreal for me. I can’t believe I’m [in victory lane] right now.”

Izzo went past Ryan Morgan for the lead on the first lap. He looked on cruise control to his first win before the caution flew with five laps remaining to put Christopher on his tail for a late race showdown.

Christopher deftly looked for the way by Izzo, but couldn’t find the path to work.

“After the last two weeks, we thought we blew the motor last week, [Pettit Racing Engines] power came through for us,” Izzo said. “I thought Teddy was going to give me a real big shot, but he drove me real nice. I appreciate that.”

Said Christopher: “I was better than him and he was getting nervous toward the end. He was so loose, but I’m not going to dump the kid for his first win.”

  1. Who would’ve thought that TC and Gunning would be on the podium together in 2016. And what’s going on with the speedbowl website? Can’t get results or point standings.

  2. To Christopher: You were not better than Izzo because you lost. Don’t make excuses for getting beat. You should be embarrassed of yourself for talking like that in a report. Izzo has always been on top and this is the first of many wins for his team in a new style of racing.

  3. Does anyone know how to find the piont standings for some reason we still cant get them off the web site

    I’m with rich on the lack of info on website, no results, no point standings, and the penalty box has not been updated since 8/29/15!

  6. Doug DiPisa says:

    Great job. Good people.

  7. Anyone see what happened to the 27 of Chadwick on the last lap? I was sitting in turn 1 and was watching the 04 and 13, and as they crossed the line I saw the 27 was in the wall.

  10. Folks,
    It’s getting old posting this over and over and over again. NO vulgar words are allowed in the comments and no creative use of symbols to create things representing vulgar words. It’s getting old posting this once a week. Jeffreyt1258 you’ve got one shot left and you’re done.

    Said Christopher: “I was better than him and he was getting nervous toward the end. He was so loose, but I’m not going to dump the kid for his first win.”

    I’m laughing so hard I can barely type… TC ‘let’ the kid win???? TC had a better car but he let the kid win????

    BuhWHAAAAAAAAAAAAhhaaaahhaaaaaaahaaaaaaaaaa!

    LOL!!!!!

    TC can make us laugh in so many ways!!!!!!!!

  12. darealgoodfella says:

    Jeffreyt1258, Dylan is the real deal. TC is afraid of him. TC didn’t do his usual, characteristic dump job on Dylan, when he was in perfect position. TC is afraid of Dylan.

  13. Chris D. says:

    Keep dreaming and reading your comic books dareal, TC isn’t afraid of anybody.

  14. Grey Matter says:

    Dylan snookered TC on the restart big time. Dylan was the absolute most consistent restarter all night and TC is not afraid of Dylan. TC would have had to wreck the kid to get around him and he thought better of it. Maybe he’s learning something in his old age.

    You guys need to get over yourselves and get a life. Honestly. Bad mouth the people you don’t like. BTW, I’ve seen T.C. in at least 5 races so far this season, and he didn’t dump anyone.

  16. Yes paul the 27 and the 8 where raceing hard the 8 was at his door entering 3 on the last lap they both touched and the 27 went around it is on sids view but if you ask shawn the race director- promoter the 8 took him out if you ask me it was hard raceing and the 8 should not be sent to the raer i dont know what he was watching he also said the 8 put the 47 in the wall earlier in the race witch was not the case it was the 21 but o well

  17. darealgoodfella says:

    Bob Npt., TC hasn’t dumped anyone in five races? HOLY COW!!!! He must have given up or something!

    That’s got to be a record.

  18. Jason, Thanks, I will check out Sids view

  19. Chris D. says:

    Awesome, the points info and penalty box info have been restored on the track website!
