WATERFORD – After weeks on the edge of getting to victory lane, a dark Saturday at the Waterford Speedbowl on July 13 was exactly what Todd Ceravolo.

Two weeks off from the Speebdowl gave the Gales Ferry driver the time to find that little bit he was looking for to get him past second place.

Ceravolo had four consecutive second place finishes from May 18 to June 15. Coming into Saturday he had six podium finishes over the last eight races.

Saturday Ceravolo got over the hump, winning the 35-lap NASCAR Whelen All-American Series SK Modified feature at the Waterford Speedbowl.

It was the first official victory at the Speedbowl for Ceravolo since Sept. 14, 2010. Ceravolo drove to victory in an SK Modified feature last year in relief of his injured son-in-law Keith Rocco, who had started the event and was credited with the victory.

“We just haven’t been able to seal the deal,” Ceravolo said. “This two week break was a blessing for us. We went through the whole car, shocks and springs. Now I can get on the gas in the middle and I can turn it and it stays to the bottom. The car is good. And when you can step on the gas early, it makes the motor look really good. Normally I’m just on it, on it, on it. You can’t step on it until just off the corner, now I’m off the gas late and on it early and it give you big power down the straightaway.”

Rocco was second and Tyler Chadwick was third.

Ceravolo is now second in the standings at Waterford, 22 points behind Rocco in the lead. Ceravolo is also in the hunt for the SK Modified championship at Thompson International Speedway.

“I’m getting up in there in age for racing,” the 49-year old Ceravolo said. “We’re still fast and competitive, but I’m not sure really how much more I want to do it personally. I’ve got grandkids coming.”
