STAFFORD – It was a fall from the top that left Corey Hutchings and the crew of his Late Model team perplexed.

After starting off the season as one of the best cars in the field, Hutchings spent the mid-part of the season struggling to find the top-10.

“It was like a light switch went off,” Hutchings said. “We went from being one of the fastest cars every week to like a 10th place car. We weren’t sure exactly what happened but we went back and tore the car apart this week and found a couple things and here we are.”

Where he was Friday was back in victory lane after the 30-lap Late Model feature Friday at Stafford Motor Speedway.

It was the second victory of the season for Hutchings, of Salem. Kevin Gambacorta of Ellington was second and Tom Fearn of Longmeadow, Mass. third.

Hutchings went by Gambacorta for the lead on the second lap and never trailed again, offering the relief of frustration Hutchings had been searching for.

“It was very frustrating because we started out so good and I felt like we were a title contender and then like a switch went off and we were just horrible,” Huthings said. “It wasn’t a lack of effort, we tried every week, we just couldn’t find it for about three weeks. This week we put a new rear-end housing in, adjusted a couple shocks and put the car back to where it was and we came alive.”
