STAFFORD – Brian Sullivan fought off the challenges of Amanda West and held on to win the 20-lap SK Light Modified feature Friday at Stafford Speedway. 

It was the first SK Light Modified win at Stafford for Sullivan, of South Windsor. 

West, of Colchester, was second and Bob Charland of Stafford third. 

Sullivan went by West for the lead on lap 10 and looked to have the car to beat. But on a lap 16 restart West was able to wrestle the lead back from Sullivan off turn two. 

Two laps later though it was Sullivan finding the lane low to go back by West and hold on for victory. 

“The thing was so good early and we made the right changes tonight,” Sullivan said. “After the restart the motor kind of hiccupped on the restart and I thought ‘It’s going south here.’ It took a few laps to get back going again. But she had a great run. That was fun battling with her.” 

Albert Saunders used a lap eight pass of Michael Ray to take over the lead and went unchallenged the rest of the way to win the 30-lap Late Model feature. 

Ray, of Northford, was second and Darrell Keane of Enfield third. 

Andrew Durand held off a final corner charge from Matthew Clement to win for the second time in two events this season in the 20-lap Limited Late Model feature. 

Clement, of Wethersfield, was second and Alexandra Fearn of East Longmeadow, Mass. third.

  1. Congrats to Brian, Albert and Andrew, along with your teams for tonight’s win great job.

  2. Good luck beating Durand. That car has some extra giddyup no one else has.
    The wait is over. The SK Light’s have their first woman ready to contend for wins and a championship in Amanda West. What happened the last two years with two or three cars dominating the division is over. It’s wide open now.
    Tom Fearn spinning on his own. Never has seen him do that. Ryan out of control to start the race sure. Tom………never.
    Speaking of Fearns I have to say that third place finish for Alexandr was surely earned. Poor gal was pushed and shoved at the start to beat the band.
    No first place checks so far this year for the Fearn clan and no racing tonight.
    Maybe next week.

  3. Two good starts for Amanda, got run all over the track by forrigno the first week , he says he runs the bottom unless someone is going to the out side of him then he’ll decide to run high
