SERIES TITLE RUN
TURNS INTO FOUR WAY BATTLE
FOR WATERFORD SATURDAY
only five races remaining on the 2010 schedule, the Modified Racing Series,
sponsored by Bob Valenti AutoMall.com, returns to the Waterford, CT.,
Speedbowl Saturday night, September 4, with one of the hottest battles for
the series championship in the seven year existence of the tour.
Engine issues for the point leader, an off night for the series defending
champion, a dedicated car-owner and hard working pit crew, a well deserved
win fought by one of the series young stars, last week at Thompson, CT., has
created a log jam at the top of the standings.
Dwight Jarvis, Ascutney, VT., suffered engine problems during practice at
Thompson forcing the point leader and former series champion out of the
event. Jon McKennedy, East Chelmsford, MA., second in the standings, was off
the mark and involved in a late race incident resulting in a 24th place
finish, leaving him in a first place tie with Les Hinckley, Windsor Locks,
Hinckley entered the program 39 points behind Jarvis, but thanks to the hard
work and commitment by his car owner Chuck Montville and crew, Hinckley was
race ready after a hard practice session crash. In the feature race,
Hinckley quietly made his way to a top five finish after starting deep in
the field, and ended up in a tie with McKennedy at the top of the standings.
The drama does not stop there. Rowan Pennink, Huntingtdon Valley, PA., is
now only 33 points out of first place, thanks to his win at Thompson; his
second series win in 2010.
