    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 September.
    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.”
