STAFFORD – On July 15, 2016 Bryan Narducci got his first career Limited Late Model victory at Stafford Motor Speedway and joined his grandfather Jerry Pearl on the winner’s list at the historic half-mile oval. 

Friday at Stafford Narducci was passing everything in sight on the track and in the end passed up his grandfather on the track’s all-time win list. 

Narducci went darting to the lead by Mikey Flynn on a lap 13 restart and staved off the challenges of Flynn over the closing laps to win the 20-lap SK Light Modified feature Friday at Stafford. 

It was the 13thcareer victory at Stafford for Narducci, of Colchester. He had six victories in the Limited Late Model division during the 2016 and 2017 seasons. Friday’s victory was his second this season and his seventh overall in the SK Light Modified division since last year. 

Narducci’s 13thcareer victory gave him one more win than his grandfather. Jerry Pearl had 12 SK Modified victories from 1983-1989. 

“It’s pretty cool,” Narducci said. “We were breaking eachother’s chops the other day about when it was going to happen. But I’ve got to catch up to him and get 12 [SK Modified] wins.” 

Flynn dominated the early laps, but Narducci used the high side to power to the lead following the lap 13 restart. Flynn gave Narducci a hard pop in turn three on lap 17, but Narducci was able to defend the attack. 

“It was a real good week this week,” Narducci said. “We had a tough week last week. We got the car back together early this week and put some time into it getting it better and it really showed tonight. The thing rolled the top like an animal.” 

Saod Flynn: “We had the first half of the race pretty much locked up. That red flag came out and we had to pull it down pit road and then after that it got a little tight. I don’t know happened. Bryan was able to get around me. Good run by him. We were able to battle it out on the last restart. It was fun.”
