Todd Owen Back On Top In SK Modified At New London-Waterford Speedbowl

Less than two weeks ago in the first SK Modified event of the season at the New London-Waterford Speedbowl, Todd Owen’s night ended by getting wrecked out of the lead late in the race.

The outcome was quite a bit cheerier for the Somers driver on Saturday.

Owen came out on top of the 40-lap SK Modified feature Saturday at the New London-Waterford Speedbowl for his first victory of the season.

Rob Janovic Jr. of Waterford was second and Dylan Izzo of Monroe third.

Kyle James had won the first two SK Modified events of the season.

After three events the top-three in the SK Modified standings at the Speedbowl are separated by four points. Izzo leads the standings with James one point behind in second and Owen three points off the lead in third. Janvoic is fourth, four points behind Izzo.

In the 150-lap American Canadian Tour feature it was reigning series champion Scott Payea of Colchester, Vt. scoring victory.

Eddie MacDonald of Rowley, Mass. was second and Jimmy Hebert of Williamstown, Vt third.

Payea went by Hebert for the lead on a lap 105 restart and never trailed, though MacDonald challenged him in the late stages. It was the second victory of the season for Payea.

Jon Puleo of Branford won the 25-lap SK Light Modified feature. It was Puleo’s third victory in three SK Light Modified features this year Waterford. Wayne Burroughs Jr. of Oakdale was second and Brett Gonyaw of Vernon third.

Charles Canfield of East Haven topped the field in the 25-lap Mini Stock field. Doug Curry of Groton was second and Ian Brew of Wood River Junction, R.I. third.

Jon Porter of East Lyme got his second victory of the season in the 25-lap Sportsman feature. Shawn Gaedeke of Groton was second and Jason Chicolas of Sutton, Mass. third.


  1. What is this New London-Waterford Speedbowl you speak of ? I went to Seekonk tonite but they dont have any Modifieds.

  2. Just Wondering says

    Congrats go out to Todd Owen on your victory, wish I could have been there.

    Just Wondering does anyone know where the lap times for the NLWS can be found? I used to be able to find the info in almost real time when I could not make it to or afford to go to the track for their special events. The Speedbowls website has some old lap and run time info but nothing new has been posted since the first race of 2017. I also looked on mylaps and race monitor websites can can’t find anything either for last nights even. Am I missing something? Any help would be greatly appreciated..

  3. There is an app called Race Monitor, it’s free to download but is $6 per year and lets you view every division at every track (except Whelen tour and k&n and any other higher division) but you can scroll through events let’s say Friday night and you’ll see stafford, seekonk and you can click on either or and click your division and it gives you live timing of the event.

    If you like modifieds and you can go on a Friday go to Stafford.

  5. Shawn thanks for the report. Todd Owen, along with many of the other competitors put their heart and soul into their racing efforts at any track they compete at. Glad to see their accomplishments reported here.

  6. Great to see Todd Owen in victory lane, even if it’s at the bowl. Thank you Shawn for covering the racers at the bowl, they do deserve it, even with the way some of us feel about the place
