STAFFORD – Alexandra Fearn left Stafford Motor Speedway last week looking at destroyed racecar and thinking a trip to victory lane was likely not anywhere near in her future.
She wasn’t even sure she’d be back at the track in a week.
“I was really worried that we weren’t going to get the car done,” Fearn said. “I was thinking ‘Maybe it’s time to take a break.’ … But we got it done. The goal was to just finish the race.”
Finish she did, in perfect style.
Fearn won the 15-lap DARE Stock feature Friday at Stafford Motor Speedway.
It was the second victory of the season for Fearn, of East Longmeadow, Mass.
“I thought we just were never going to get back here,” Fearn said. “I was kind of feeling down after finishing only two races this year. I’m really happy to be here. I would not be in victory lane or at the racetrack this week without [Amedeo Francesca] my car owner, or John G. Powers. They worked on the car last night at the shop and they do wonders. I would not be here without them. I can’t thank them enough.”
Tyler Trott of East Hartford was second and Brandon Michael of Granville, Mass. third.
Following a lap seven restart, Fearn used the outside lane to get by Zack Robinson for the lead. From there she never trailed again.
“I don’t know why everyone is so afraid of the outside,” Fearn said. “It’s not that bad. This is the second race I’ve won from the outside.”
Daniel Wesson used a lap 13 restart to get by Todd Douillard for the lead and went on to win the 20-lap SK Light Modified feature.
It was the second victory of the season for Wesson, of Monson, Mass.
“I was really grateful for that caution,” Wesson said. “Those last few restarts, they were amazing. A great race overall.”
Douillard, of Palmer, Mass., held on for second. Tony Membrino Jr. of Berlin was third.
Justin Bren of Palmer, Mass. led every lap to win the 20-lap Limited Late Model feature.
Rookie Bryan Narducci of Colchester, making his sixth start in the division, had a career best second place. Albert Saunders of Stafford was third.
Noah Korner of Canton won the 20-lap Legends feature. Teddy Hodgon of Danbury was second and Joey Ternullo Jr. of Middletown third.
