ALEXANDER TAKES TRUE VALUE LEE OPENER
Defending champion Kirk Alexander, Swanzey, NH., jumped into the
lead on lap three and roared to victory in the ”Governors Cup 100”
modified race Sunday afternoon at Lee USA Speedway, Lee NH. The win
was Alexander’s 27th career victory with the touring series.
Despite early race pressure from Ted Christopher, Plainville,
CT, and then David Pinkham, Buxton, ME, the three-time champion
survived a caution plagued race that was once stopped for an
overheating racer that sprayed water on the racing surface resulting
in six cars retired to the pit area. Pinkham settled for second
followed by E. Hartland CT’s Dale Evonsion, Madison, CT., veteran Mike Holdridge, and Jon
McKennedy, Chelmsford, MA. making up the top five.
Christopher, Rob Goodenough, Swanzey, NH., Les Hinckley,
Windsor Locks, CT., Ed Dachenhausen, Danbury, CT., and Chris
Pasteryak, Lisbon, CT, finished sixth through tenth.
Sunday’s race was also the first of eight guaranteed starter
races for the Sunoco Modified Mania 400 weekend at Thompson, CT. in
The next event for the TVMRS will be Saturday April 26, at
Monadnock Speedway, Winchester, NH., for the running of the “Bond
Auto Parts 100.”
