Tom Abele Jr. of Norwich won the 25-lap SK Light Modified feature. Mark Panaroni of Ivoryton topped the field in the 25-lap Mini Stock feature. Chris Taylor of East Lyme won the 25-lap Truck feature. Brody Monahan of Waterford won the 25-lap Legends feature. Shawn Gaedeke of Groton was victorious in the 25-lap Street Stock feature.

    Was a good afternoon of racing. Smaller crowd till festure time and heat hurt attendees I am sure..
    Good food and lots of happy people for being at the races again. Wednesday start this week and looks like nice weather for next weekend. See you there.

    I like the earlier starts…nice to leave a track before 9pm most Saturdays. Great racing as always, especially in the Late Models. A truck almost went over the wall through the fence just like last year’s ski crash….yikes. Weather was perfect with the ocean breeze.
