Saturday at the New London-Waterford Speedbowl it was the newest generation of the racing family proving that point once again.
Ten-year old Tyler Barry, the grandson of legendary Modified Team owner Art Barry and son of longtime Modified driver Ken Barry, won the 20-lap Bandolero feature at the Bud Blastoff 2016 at the New London-Waterford Speedbowl.
Tyler Barry was making his track debut in the event.
Ethan Durocher of Plainfield was second and Andrew Morin of Old Saybrook was third on the track but disqualified for an illegal gear, moving Charles Prinz of Higganum to third.
Prinz led the first 14 laps of the event but on lap 15 a lapped car made contact with Prinz, dropping him to fourth and allowing Tyler Barry to take over the lead. Tyler Barry and Durocher battled side-by-side over the closing laps.
