WATERFORD – Since wrecking his primary SK Modified in a heat race crash on May 3, Keith Rocco has been struggling to get the car back to the place he wanted it.

Though struggling being a relative term as it relates to Rocco, who raced to a second place and third place finish with the car in the last two events at the Waterford Speedbowl.

Saturday he said the car is back.

Rocco, of Wallingford, rolled away from the field to win the 35-lap NASCAR Whelen All-American Series SK Modified feature Saturday at the Waterford Speedbowl.

“This car was awesome tonight,” Rocco said. “It took us about two to three weeks to get this thing straightened out after the big wreck. But my team does an awesome job and they stuck behind me. We threw stuff at it, we threw springs at it, we threw everything in the book at it and we’re back. We’ve got this thing back where it’s supposed to be.”

Ed Puleo of Branford was second and Rob Janovic Jr. of Waterford third.

Rocco has three victories, three seconds and a third place in seven SK Modified events this year at Waterford.

Rocco used the outside lane on a restart with 22 laps remaining to go by Shawn Thibeault for the lead and was never challenged out front again.

“Keith was on rails,” Puleo said. “We kind of just held on there at the end because we knocked some stuff around the car.”
