PASTERYAK WIRES SEEKONK FINALE
Point leader Chris Pasteryak, Lisbon, CT, went wire to wire Sunday
afternoon winning the “D.A.V. Memorial Fall Classic 100” for the
True Value Modified Racing Series at Seekonk Speedway, Seekonk, MA.
Pasteryak, by virtue of winning his qualifying heat, started on the
pole, fended off Todd Annarummo and was never headed to score his
second win this season. Pasteryak’s win makes him the fifth
different winner of the October race.
Pasteryak was fast all weekend and in post race interviews was
quick to point out his Dawleys Auto Center racer was dialed in from
the get go. “It was one of them nights and one of them weekends
where everything went good. I picked a good number, started on the
pole in the heat race, we didn’t change it from practice to the heat
race, didn’t change it from the heat race to the feature, we didn’t
touch the thing since we took it off the trailer. It was the right
kind of race for someone who started on the pole to have a good
night with only one caution instead of having restart after restart
where you buzz the tires, buzz the tires, I was just able to roll it
around, I watched Vinnie do it here enough, I should be getting good
at it by now.”
The race was slowed only once, on lap 63 for a minor spin, and
again on the race re-start for another minor spin.
“I was a little nervous after the long green. After a restart cars
change. Cars that are not good all of a sudden are good. After we
ran one lap after the restart, I knew we were still golden. The car
never changed from lap 1 to 100. It was perfect,” Pasteryak said.
Annarummo, making his first start driving his fathers #12 modified
racer, drove a solid race to finish runner-up. 2006 champion Dwight
Jarvis finished third, Les Hinckley, fourth, and Mike Holdridge,
fifth. Sixth through tenth were, Jimmy Kuhn, Ed Dachenhausen, Jon
McKennedy, Louie Mechalides, and rookie of the year contender, Kenny
26 cars started the Seekonk finale with 13 cars on the lead lap.
The race was run off in 31 minutes.
