STAFFORD – At the season opening NAPA Spring Sizzler on May 12 Ryan Waterman scored his long awaited first Street Stock victory at Stafford Speedway. 

Now it seems the Danielson driver doesn’t want to share victory lane with anyone else. 

Waterman passed Travis Downey for the lead on lap eight and went unchallenged the rest of the way to win the 20-lap Street Stock feature Friday at Stafford. 

It was the third victory in four Street Stock events this year for Waterman, who also won on May 19. 

Waterman made a mad dash from mid-pack over the opening laps before making the move for the lead on Downey. 

“You gotta get to the front quick when you’ve got these fast cars to race with,” Waterman said. “Just gotta get there and protect it.” 

Johnny Walker of Agawam, Mass. was second for the second consecutive event and Jason Lafayette of Somers was third. 

“The [car] was feeling pretty good tonight,” Walker said. “It’s a little discouraging to come home bridesmaid again, but we’ll get there.” 

Jeremy Lavoie came out on top of the wreck-marred Limited Late Model Riley Generators 30. 

Nine cars were left running of the 17 that started the event, which was 10 laps longer than the division usually runs. 

“Man that was like World War III,” Lavoie said. “When you ask to give us 10 more laps, you might see some carnage in this division.”  

It was the 22nd career victory in the division for the Windsor Locks driver. 

Adrien Paradis III of Plainville was second and Matt Clement of Wethersfield was third.
