WATERFORD – Before the start of the 2015 racing season, reigning New London-Waterford Speedbowl SK Light Modified champion Corey Barry made the decision to forgo running full-time at the track this season.

That decision it seems is becoming harder and harder for Barry to stick with.

For the second time in two events this year, Barry won the 25-lap SK Light Modified feature at the New London-Waterford Speedbowl.

Josh Galvin of Franklin was second and Cal Therrien of Vernon third.

After the win Barry said part-time has become sort of full-time for his team, as of now.

“We kind of made a halfway decision last week,” Barry said. “We kind of told ourselves that if we came home in one piece every week we could manage to bring it back here. So as of right now, it’s a go. We’re definitely racing for wins, but we’re also racing to keep all four wheels on the car. If we wreck it’s not coming back the next week. Wins are nice, but finishing is even nicer sometimes.”

Barry said it means that defensive driving will be a factor weekly.

“All along every year I’ve been racing I’ve never had a lot of money, so I’ve always had that mindset racing,” Barry said. “But this year it’s a little more knowing that we’re technically not racing for a championship, though right now it looks pretty good.”

Barry moved to second on lap five and then on a lap 10 restart he went by Chris Gombos for the lead. From there nobody had anything for him.

“We were playing the setup for later in the race,” Barry said. “I knew it was going to be a little slow for the first five laps, but it definitely came in nice.”

Chris Meyer of Norwich won the 25-lap Limited Sportsman feature. Ryan Waterman of Danielson was second and Al Stone III of Durham third.

Ray Christian III of Groton won the 25-lap Mini Stock feature. Dave Trudeau of Mansfield was second and Jordan Hadley of Quaker Hill third.
