Tom Fearn Captures Late Model Victory At Stafford Motor Speedway

STAFFORD – A week ago Tom Fearn rolled a battered and banged up ride to a second place finish in the Late Model feature at Stafford Motor Speedway.

After the race, while Adam Gray celebrated a bruising victory, Fearn remarked that the fastest car doesn’t always win.

Friday, Fearn showed that speed does eventually pay off.

Fearn held off the charges of Gray and Woody Pitkat to win the 30-lap Late Model feature Friday at Stafford. It was the first victory of the season for Gray of East Longmeadow, Mass.

“The last few weeks we were winning warmups but not the features,” Fearn said. “Today we struggled a little in warmups. We ran good in the heat [race] but we found a bent spindle and changed that for the feature. I guess that was just the little bit we needed.”

Pitkat, of Stafford, was second and Gray, of Belchertown, Mass., third.

Fearn moved to second on a lap three restart and then went by Kevin Gambacorta for the lead on lap lap.

Gray challenged Fearn for the lead on lap 13, but ended up losing second place to Pitkat on lap 14.
