From Wedged To Win: Tyler Chadwick Rebounds With Dominant SK Modified Win At Waterford

WATERFORD – Last week Tyler Chadwick’s night behind the wheel of his SK Modified was seemingly over before it started.

An early race wreck led to a misery for Abele and comedy for those in grandstands. Chadwick’s car ended up wedged in the wall making for a lively struggle by track crew members to pull it free.

Saturday no walls got in the way for Chadwick, of Ledyard, as he proved dominant in driving to victory in the 100-lap NASCAR Whelen All-American Series feature at Waterford, part of the mid-season 300 show.

Rob Janovic Jr. of Groton was second and Craig Lutz of Miller Place, N.Y. third.

“We were all pretty down last week,” Chadwick said. “At the same time I know I have a good enough crew and team behind that no matter what happens the week before we can come back and win the next week. Any week we show up we can win. It’s just having the great support behind me with my team.”

Chadwick went by Kyle James for the lead with 46 laps remaining and never trailed again, though he had to survive numerous restarts over the final 30 laps.

“I struggled with restart for about six years so it’s about time I got those things down,” Chadwick said. “This thing is just dynamite on restarts. It was just a matter of being patient there at the beginning and picking the spots where we had to.”

Janovic now has four second place finishes and a victory over the last five events.
