Richard Savary Tops Valenti Modified Racing Series Field At Seekonk Speedway

2014 VMRS LogoA Sunday visit to Seekonk (Mass.) Speedway proved the perfect elixir for Richard Savary’s ailing Valenti Modified Racing Series.

Savary, of Canton, Mass., bounced back from struggles in the first two races of the season to win Sunday’s Spring Kickoff 100 at Seekonk Speedway.

Justin Bonsignore, of Holtsville, N.Y., was second and Anthony Nocella of Woburn, Mass. third.

It was a theme of rebounding drivers in the top-four at Seekonk.

Savary, expected to be a driver to possibly contend for a title in 2014, was 23rd of 24 cars in the Valenti Modified Racing Series season opener at the Waterford Speedbowl on April 13 and he was 15th in the division’s second and most previous event at Monadnock Speedway in Winchester, N.H. on April 19.

Bonsignore, who finished 19th in the season opener after getting involved in a crash, was second at Seekonk for the second consecutive event.

Steve Masse of Bellingham, Mass. is another driver on the rebound from a first event wreck. Masse was 21st after being involved in a wreck in the season opener. He was third at Monadnock and fourth Sunday at Seeknonk.

Savary started third, in the 23-car field. According to The Chrome Horn, he passed pole-sitter Todd Annarummo for the lead on lap 46 and never trailed again.

Unofficially, Todd Szegedy of Ridgefield, who finshed 10th, kept the points lead he held coming into the event. He left Seekonk with 127 points. Rowan Pennink (7th Sunday) of Huntingdon Valley, Pa. and Chris Pasteryak (8th Sunday) of Lisbon are tied for second in the standings with 125 points.

Bonsignore is fifth with 113 points. Max Zachem (9th Sunday) of Preston is fourth with 114 points. Jeff Rocco, who finished sixth Sunday, is sixth in the standings with 111 points. Savary jumped from 19th to ninth in the standings.
