The experiment seemed to work.

On May 3 Tommy Barrett Jr. ran a Late Model for the first time at the Waterford Speedbowl for team owner Ted Butler. The Millis, Mass. teenager and rookie went on the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour went on to finish second in his debut in a full-size fendered racing car.

Barrett and team officials said that day they would see how things went and if the possibility was there to run regularly for the duration of the 2014 season. And clearly it went well.

Yankee Racer reports that Barrett has committed to running for the team for the rest of the season when his schedule allows.

“It was a lot of fun,” Barrett said. “Not nearly as much grip but also less horsepower. (You) can bump and bang a little more. I look forward to this weekend.”

“(The competition is) very strong,” Barrett said. “(You) have Keith Rocco, Bruce Thomas, (and) Jeff Smith. (There is) great quality but would be nice to get a few more cars out there,” Barrett told Yankee Racer.

Barrett will be back in the Late Model Saturday at the Waterford Speedbowl.
