STAFFORD – Sunday Ronnie Williams kicked off the week by winning in dramatic style, coming out on top of a final lap full contact tussle with Keith Rocco at Thompson Speedway. 

Friday at Stafford Speedway Williams kept the winning ways going in his SK Modified, though in much less dramatic style. 

Williams, the reigning SK Modified champion at Stafford, cruised to victory in the 40-lap NASCAR Whelen All-American Series SK Modified feature. 

Williams, of Tolland, passed a seemingly defenseless Andrew Molleur for the  lead on lap 8 and went unchallenged the rest of the way in the caution free event. 

“I thought at some point there was going to be a caution because that’s how it always goes here,” Williams said. “That’s probably the easiest … win I’ve gotten in a while here. This is a stout field. … We had a stout car today and I’m happy we got back in victory lane. Hopefully we can build off this.” 

Joey Cipriano III of Waterbury was second and Nick Salva of Prospect third. 

It was the first victory of the season at Stafford for Williams. 

“I felt we were struggling a little bit for the first month,” Williams said. “To get this rolling and get the win at Thompson and get the win here and do it in dominance, it’s a good feeling moving forward. 

“Our peak I’d usually say is the end of the June and all of July and August. Like that’s where the car is strongest and I run the best. So we’re getting to that peak a little bit early. We’ve just got to keep up with the track and keep up on improving our cars because we can be better. This is where we should be every week.”
