New England Racing Fuel Performer Of The Week Award: Ryan Fearn

Each week during the 2013 racing season the New England Racing Fuel RaceDayCT Performer of the Week will be chosen from among drivers competing in events in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series weekly division competitors at Stafford Motor Speedway, Thompson International Speedway and the Waterford Speedbowl.

Each week’s winner will receive a $20 certificate for race fuel from New England Racing Fuel. Drivers must have a Sunoco Race Fuel decal on their car to be eligible for the weekly award.

On Friday at Stafford Motor Speedway it was Tommy Barrett Jr. celebrating the big victory at the track for the evening, in winning the 80-lap Valenti Modified Racing Series feature.

But hours before the 18-year old Barrett was raising the trophy in victory lane at Stafford that night, one of his records at the track was being stolen away.

The night’s feature lineup of racing at Stafford Speedway Friday begin with a 15-lap DARE Stock feature and in that event it was 14-year old Ryan Fearn grabbing his first career victory in his fifth start in the division.

It was sweet redemption for Fearn, of East Longmeadow, who looked ready to challenge for his first victory at the track on June 14 before a hard crash on the frontstretch took him out of contention.

Fearn, a graduate of the Ceric Fabrication Karting Series which competes on the little Stafford mini-mile on Monday’s, became the youngest winner ever in a stock car in the history of Stafford Speedway.

Before Friday Barrett held that distinction, a mark he set when he won his first SK Light Modified division event at 15 years old on June 4, 2010.

For his efforts, Fearn earns the New England Racing Fuel RaceDayCT Performer of the Week Award.
