Thompson, CT — During an exciting night of racing, the points battles continued to heat up at Thompson International Speedway on Thursday. Kerry Malone of Needham, MA, won a Sunoco Modified main event that shook up the point standings heading into the final event of the regular season next Thursday night, September 20, 2007. Mike O’Sullivan of Springfield, MA, padded his point lead with a Pro Stock feature victory while Keith DeSanctis of Monson, MA, by virtue of his Limited Sportsman victory, moved into the point lead in the division. Keeping in it the family, Tommy O’Sullivan added to the celebration by winning in the Late Model division. Unofficial O’Sullivan teammate Tim Sullivan of E. Windsor bested the TIS Modified field helping his championship hopes. Scott Michalski of South Killingly earned his first win of the 2007 season in the Mini Stocks.
Kerry Malone of Needham, MA saw it all en route to his third Sunoco Modified win of the season. He nearly spun, took the lead, and his car was suspected of leaking fluid. But in the end, Malone was dry all the way to the checkered flag.
For the second week in a row the points were shaken up atop the Sunoco Modified point standings. With his runner-up finish, Keith Rocco took over the points lead by 14 points over a tie for second between Tommy Cravenho and Woody Pitkat.
