Thompson, CT — Demo-Mania hit Thompson International Speedway on Memorial Day weekend. NASCAR Weekly Racing Series Divisions kicked-off the family fun events on Sunday with Ted Christopher taking down the Sunoco Modified win. Other winners on the night included John Falconi in the Late Models, Ryan Stone in the Strictly Stocks, Chris Gagnon in the Mini Stocks, and none other than George Savary in the Pro Four Modifieds.
Zach Sylvester of Lebanon, CT brought the field of 29 Sunoco Modifieds to the green but by the end of the first lap Darryl Tiezzi of Ivorytown, CT would lead the pack. Heavy hitters Bert Marvin, Ted Christopher, and defending champ Todd Ceravolo were coming on strong.
After taking the lead on lap six Bert Marvin of Waterford, CT would show the lead until a lap 17 restart necessitated by the caution for a spin by early leader Darryl Tiezzi. Marvin would get the early jump but by turn one Ted Christopher would get the edge. Christopher would withstand a number of late race restarts and heavy pressure from Todd Ceravolo to bring home the first checkers of the 2000 season for the Sunoco Modifieds at Thompson International Speedway.
