With the heat of summer officially hovering, it’s that time of year at the track when watching points becomes paramount for championship contenders in every division. 

In the Limited Late Model division Jeremy Lavoie is heating up with the weather while chasing a third title in the division. 

Lavoie completed a three-week progression up the podium on Friday by winning the 20-lap Limited Late Model feature at Stafford Speedway. 

It was the second win of the season for Lavoie, of Windsor Locks, who won Limited Late Model division championships in 2018 and 2019. He finished third two weeks ago and second last week. 

“We’ve been hitting on the setup pretty close and this week we were able to go right to the front,” Lavoie said. “I finished second last week and I was really close to being first. But, like I said last week, we had one spot to improve on and we did that.” 

It was the 23rd career victory in the division for Lavoie, who leads the Limited Late Model standings after eight events. 

“The car fired off really well and it just kept getting better,” Lavoie said. “I looked in the mirror two times and I knew I had really no pressure from behind from like lap 15 on. Usually we were about the times in practice, and we were a little slow. But the fastest car doesn’t usually win the race. It’s whoever gets to the front first.” 

Kevin Cormier of Agawam, Mass. was second and Damien Palardy third.
