STAFFORD – A week ago Alexandra Fearn celebrated her second victory of the season in the DARE Stock division at Stafford Motor Speedway.
Friday little brother made sure to keep up.
Ryan Fearn of East Longmeadow, Mass. was dominant in rolling to his second victory of the season in the 15-lap DARE Stock feature Friday at Stafford Motor Speedway.
“We’ve had some tough luck this year,” Ryan Fearn said. “You’ve just got to work through it.”
Johnny Walker of Ludlow, Mass. was second and Tyler Trott of East Hartford third.
Ryan Fearn and Alexandra Fearn race at Stafford with their uncle Tom Fearn, a longtime Late Model division veteran who came into Friday’s event with four victories this year.
“It’s just really cool when you have everyone on the team winning like in close succession to each other,” Ryan Fearn said before the Late Model feature. “Only one of us can go out there and win in the DARE Stocks. Tommy is the only one in the Late Model, he can go out there and win every week. … I just really hope that he can go to victory lane. That would make it really cool and extra special, a Fearn sweep if you will.”
That extra special that Ryan Fearn was hoping for came true as Tom Fearn of East Longmeadow, Mass. pulled away from the field to win the 30-lap Late Model feature for his fifth victory of the season.
“The race tonight was won in the garage,” Tom Fearn said. “We had a really good car when we got here and I just had to keep it under me.”
Tom Fearn said he enjoys the family dynamic of racing at the same track with his niece and nephew.
“It’s really great to share [wins] with them,” Tom Fearn said. “It’s one thing if I win and they’re just in victory lane or something, for them to go to victory lane and see what it feels like on their own and I go down there to victory lane with them to support them. It’s a great family thing. We’re all in the same shop, we’re all working on the cars all the time. It’s great to see, hopefully some day they can carry on when I leave.”
Joel Monahan of Whately, Mass. was second and Kevin Gambacorta of Ellington third.
Justin Bren of Palmer got his second win of the season in the 20-lap Limited Late Model feature.
Frank L’Etoile Jr. of Wethersfield was second and R.J. Surdell of Manchester third.
