   The Chrome Horn - Modified Racing Series




Defending Modified Racing Series champion Jon McKennedy of East Chelmsford, MA., scored his first win of the season Friday night, July 9, when he won the “Laticrete Port City 100” before a huge crowd at Lee USA Speedway, Lee, NH.

The win was McKennedy’s eighth career victory with the Modified Racing Series, sponsored by Bob Valenti AutoMall.Com., and his second at the Lee oval.

The race was competitive right from the start with five different leaders and seven lead changes throughout the 100 lap green flag race.

Pole sitter Dwight Jarvis, Ascutney, VT., led the opening lap with Mike Ordway Jr taking over the top spot on lap two. The Fremont, NH., driver led the field until lap 16 when another local favorite, Louie Mechalides, Tygnsboro, MA., took the lead.

Mechalides set the pace before yielding the top spot to Milford, CT., standout Doug Coby on lap 34. It was Coby’s turn at the front as he opened up a sizeable lead before Jarvis took it back for two laps when Coby slowed.

Mechalides and Jarvis then swapped the lead with Jarvis prevailing through lap 73, when a fast closing #73, McKennedy, powered by. Heavy traffic created a close finish as Jarvis was 0.325 behind the winner at the checkered flag.

31 race teams entered the event. 24 cars started the race with 20 cars finishing, 12 cars finished on the lead lap.

The next event on the 19 race schedule takes place on Saturday night July 17 at the Oxford Plains Speedway, Oxford, ME.
