THOMPSON – Buddy Charette won the battle, but Anthony Bello won the war.

Charette, of Woodstock, won the caution-marred 25-lap SK Light Modified feature Sunday at the Sunoco World Series at Thompson Speedway.

“We got three wins,” Charette said. “We missed it a little in the last race [on Sept. 15]. We had carburetor issues and something else. We didn’t have a good showing then, but these guys have been digging hard with me.”

Second place finishing Anthony Bello of Newtown was able to beat out Charette for the 2021 track championship.

“What a season,” Bello said. “… The whole French family, they put this car together. I dedicate this win to Bob Potter and the whole Potter family. This whole season, this whole championship is all for that family. And I just can’t thank the whole French family and my whole crew here. It’s amazing. I just can’t believe it at all.”

Josh Carey of Belchertown, Mass. was third in Sunday’s feature.

PJ Stergois of Candia, N.H. won the 25-lap NEMA Lites feature. Randy Cabral of Plymouth, Mass. was second and Avery Stoehr of Lakeville, Mass. third.

Dave Trudeau of Mansfield won the 20-lap Mini Stock feature. Zach Jurcik of Chaplin was second and Steve Michalski of Brooklyn third.
