STAFFORD – Meghan Fuller held off Travis Hydar in a side-by-side battle to the checkered flag to win the 20-lap Street Stock feature Friday at Stafford Speedway.

It was the second victory of the season for Fuller, of Auburn, Mass.

“I was definitely on the edge of my seat the whole time,” Fuller said. “I know this because I was literally out of my seat trying to hold on to it. I was coming down the frontstretch coming to the checkered and I was looking and looking to see who was going to win, me or Travis. It was definitely some clean racing.”

Hydar, of Woodbury, was second and Zach Robinson of Putnam third.

Adam Gray powered by John Blake on a lap 26 restart and went to win the 30-lap Late Model feature.

It was the second consecutive victory and fifth victory overall in 2020 for Gray, of Belchertown, Mass. 

“We definitely earned this one tonight,” Gray said. “Three-wide in [turns] one and two, I thought I was going in the fence and the night was going to be over. We worked our tail off. Unbelievable. It’s like a dream season all over again.” 

Wayne Coury Jr. of Shelton was second and Ryan Fearn of East Longmeadow, 

Blake had checked out from the field before caution flew on lap 26. 

“He was phenomenal tonight,” Gray said. “I don’t know if he spun the tires a little bit on the [restart] and we were able to beat him down into turn one,” Gray said.

  1. Congrats to Adam, Andrew and your teams for your wins tonight. Great job.

  2. Four cars racing “under a blanket”. That’s the ideal isn’t it but so often the expression is over used.
    The finish in the Street Stocks Friday night was 4 cars racing under a blanket with the chick beating the guys to the checkers……….an exciting ending in a night of exciting racing..

  3. Seems strange not to see Tom Fearn not the Fearn charging to the front.
    There you go Ryan. Nothing too flashy. No sketchy parts, dive bombing or three wide’s. No one in the pits looking to give you an ear full after the race I’m guessing. The usual sense of urgency but not overly so resulting in a terrific third place having moved up 10 spots the same number as the points leader and race winner. Passing really good cars.

  4. Suitcase Jake says

    Nice Win Meghan, I will say that next year She will be moving on to the SK Lites…. That will be the next logical step up the ladder… She has learned her lessons well in the full fender cars at Thompson and Stafford . Her Father is very smart guiding her career in racing.. Not sure if College is on the horizon, but I believe she is ready for the open wheels… Her Uncle and Dad can definitely give her a great set up and teach her the ins and outs of racing Modified type Cars.. Hopefully the sponsors have seen her having success, also her popularity with the fans . I wish you the best in your racing career, Having the Fuller’s and McCallum’s in your family tree how could you not become a Good Racer…. Good Luck in 2021

  5. Might I ask, Doug, if you are watching a broadcast of the race, and not AT the race, how do you know your favorite boy was not driving like a crazed fool at any point in the race? You are wrong. He did three wide dive-bombs a couple times and was driving over-caffienated. I’m beginning to think that you enjoy drivers who make their gains by purposely interfering with the others.
    And your continued blind-eye support of a particular couple drivers makes me wonder if you have a personal relationship that is undisclosed . If that is so, it would be useful to know. That way I would know to take your seemingly biased observations with a grain of salt.

  6. Indeed you may ask getserious and I’m happy to oblige.
    Yes I am a loyal streamer of races and have taken in all but one event at Stafford as well as races at many other tracks. Friday for Stafford, Sunday at Star for the MRS race and the Pat’s last night made for a full weekend. I’m going to assume that by capitalizing “AT” you find that deficient. At this point I find that tedious and ignorant so I’ll just get to the beef.
    Disclose relationships. What is this a Congressional investigation? I could be Tom Fearn’s illegitimate half brother and it wouldn’t make any difference. I’m a fan of racing. All I’m required to do is be accurate when I support someone and super accurate when I am critical.
    If the charge is I sugar coat Ryan Fearns on track exploits that too is ignorant. If you take the time to click on this link and read my in depth critique in the comments of his incident last week for which he was penalized you’ll see why.

    I’ve held up my end getserious by being very specific in last weeks incident. Now you be specific and tell me what laps Ryan was out of control. I don’t know you’re wrong but I’m certain you haven’t proven a thing either. If you’re saying mere presence at the event makes your vague accusation accurate I just don’t think there’s any beef in that burger.

Speak Your Mind
