THOMPSON – The busiest day in local racing came to a close Saturday at Thompson Speedway with Corey Barry celebrating.
Barry survived a mid-race skirmish with Brett Gonyaw and came out on top of the 20-lap SK Light Modified feature at the Sunoco World Series at Thompson Speedway Saturday.
It was the second victory of the season at Thompson for Barry, of Plainfield.
Glen Griswold of Vernon was second and Keith Caruso of Millbury, Mass. third.
Barry went by Gonyaw for the lead on lap six. On lap eight contact between the two sent Gonyaw spinning out of second place.
“I’ve got to thank [Gonyaw] for taking care of himself,” Barry said. “He tried wrecking me but he can’t hang so that’s fine.”
Nick Maniatis won the 20-lap North East Mini Stock tour feature.
Chase Dowling of Roxbury won the 22-lap Pro Four Modified feature.
