Dillon Moltz Wins Late Model 100 at Stafford Speedway

Stafford Springs, CT — The Late Model division took center stage at Stafford Motor Speedway this past Friday night with the first of two extra distance 100-lap feature events of the 2008 season.  Dillon Moltz drove to his third consecutive Late Model feature victory of the season in the 100-lapper, with Woody Pitkat winning the 40-lap SK Modified® feature, Mark Bakaj winning the 20-lap SK Light Modified feature, Joey Ferrigno winning the 20-lap Limited Late Model feature, and Robert Thompson winning the 15-lap DARE Stock feature event.

The 100-lap Late Model feature saw Dillon Moltz continue his hot streak by recording his third straight Late Model feature victory.  Scott Cook took the early race lead from the pole and led the first 18 laps before contact from Brian Chapin sent him spinning in turn 4.  Corey Hutchings took over the race lead and he led the race to lap-27 when Joe Rzeszutek took over the top spot.  Rzeszutek held the lead under a long green flag stretch of the race until Moltz ran him down and took the lead on lap-67.  From that point to the finish, Moltz was never seriously challenged as he scored his third consecutive feature win.  Rzeszutek finished second, with Hutchings, Ryan Posocco, and Scott Foster, Jr. rounding out the top-5.
