WATERFORD – When the sparks stopped flying and the dust settled on some full contact action, it was Keith Rocco doing the celebrating in Late Model victory lane at the Waterford Speedbowl.

Rocco used some bumping and banging to go by Dillon Moltz for the lead in turn four with six laps remaining and held on the rest of the way to win the 30-lap Late Model feature Saturday at the Waterford Speedbowl.

It was the third Late Model victory of the season for Rocco, of Wallingford.

Moltz, of Waterford, was second and Jason Palmer of Berlin third.

Rocco went to the lead past Palmer at the start, but with 18 laps remaining, after some contact, it was Moltz going under Rocco for the lead.

But Rocco never let Moltz go too far before making the move for the win.

“Early in the race I knew Moltz was fast and he was coming so I really didn’t put up much of a fight,” Rocco said. “He got under me and I knew he had a better car then, but this Crazy Horse chassis just keeps plugging. At the end of the race it was still there and still plugging.”

Said Moltz: “It was just a good show. I think we were just so even. I ran him down in the beginning. I think his car came to him at the end and ours started going away. I’m good with that. I’m not going to cry about that. I’m sure other people would, but it was good racing. I’m glad we put on a show for the fans. Can’t complain with a second place.”

Toby Wells of Dublin, N.H. drove away from Danny Field of Deep River on the final restart with six circuits remaining to win the wreck-marred 50-lap Northeast Mini Stock Tour feaure.

Field held on for second and Bill Leonard of Charlestown, R.I. was third.
