RacedayCT Northern Points Green 280Joey Polewarczyk Jr. continued his stranglehold on ACT Late Model Tour Victory Lane Saturday night, winning the People’s United Bank 100 at Devil’s Bowl Speedway for his third win in five starts this season.

The reiging ACT champion took over the top spot on lap 75 and never looked back in the caution-free event.

“I couldn’t have asked for a better car,” said the Hudson, N.H., driver, who also has wins at Oxford Plains Speedway and Airborne Park Speedway in 2015. “It rolled through the corners better than anyone, and it stuck wherever I put it.”

Nick Sweet of Barre, Vt., finished second, while Wayne Helliwell Jr. finished third to unofficially retain the series point lead.

Polewarczyk started seventh in the 26-car field and remained patient while early leaders Sweet and Helliwell battled for the top spot. Even without the benefit of a caution flag, Polewarcyk was able to keep them in sight.

It was redemption of sorts for Polewarczyk, who dominated this race a year ago before losing it on a restart with just eight laps remaining.

“I wanted this one pretty bad, and it more than makes up for last year,” he said.

Local Late Model competitor Josh Masterson of Bristol, Vt., finished a career-best fourth. Brad Babb of Windham, Maine, rounded out the top five.


Shane Clark of Winterport, Maine, snapped a long winless drought by capitalizing on a late-race restart to win the 35-lap Late Model feature at Wiscasset Speedway Saturday night.

Clark was able to work by Will Collins and Luke Hinkley from the inside of the second row on a restart with 10 laps remaining.

“It was great to win,” Clark said. “It’s been five years since I’ve won, and I’m just very fortunate. We got to (the leaders) and I knew I was a little better… The car got really tight at the end, but we were able to hold (Collins) off. Today was the day that my father passed away two years ago, so this win was good for that.

“It made it special.”

Multi-time NELCAR Legends champion Matt Bourgoine of Newport, Maine, won the 25-lap feature event for that tour on the same card.


Tyler King snapped a drought of more than 11 months by dominating the 50-lap NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Pro Series main event Saturday at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway.

Reigning track champion Dave Farrington Jr. of Jay, Maine, rallied from deep in mid-pack to finish second and take over the early-season point lead.

The Kulwicki Development Driver Program driver looked like he’s begun turning a corner and hitting his stride.

“The car is back to where it’s supposed to be,” Farrington said, via his Facebook page. “Great adjustments all night by the crew.”
