Youth Served: Anthony Bello Tops 602 Modified Field At New Smyrna World Series

Anthony Bello

It’s not quite clear what the curfew is for 15-year old Anthony Bello of Newtown though it’s probably likely that he broke curfew early Tuesday morning in New Smyrna, Fla.,

But he did it for a victory in the World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing. 

A long night of racing at New Smyrna Speedway starting Monday and going deep into Tuesday morning closed out with Bello celebrating victory in the 25-lap 602 Modified feature just after 1:30 a.m. 

“It’s that man, [crew chief] Paul French,” Bello said “He makes this car so good here. I just can’t thank the whole crew enough. Oh my god. I have no words right now at all. I’m completely speechless.” 

Paul Hartwig of Galloway, N.J. was second and Neil Rutt III of Edison N.J. was third. 

Bello was second in the first 602 Modified feature of the World Series on Sunday night. 

Hartwig was angry after both night’s of racing for the division.

“Last night that [Bello] kept driving me to the moon every restart,” Hartwig said. “I’m here to run clean. I didn’t touch one car. All four of my tires still show Hoosier on every side. … I might have been an idiot when I was younger, but these kids need to get respect and respect the race cars and don’t let mommy and daddy pay all their bills and drive like an idiot. [Bello hit] everything but the lottery so far this weekend, so he can have his win.”
