Dillon Moltz Wins N.E. Dodge Dealers 100 for Extra Distance Sweep at Stafford

Stafford Springs, CT — Stafford Motor Speedway returned to racing action on Friday, August 22nd with the 14th Annual New England Dodge Dealers Late Model 100. Stafford’s Late Model division took center stage with their second extra distance event of the 2008 season on tap and it was Dillon Moltz taking down the victory ahead of Ryan Posocco. Moltz’s victory was a repeat of his 100-lap victory in June and cements him as the Late Model extra distance king of the 2008 season. Frank Ruocco nailed down his second win of the season in the 40-lap SK ModifiedĀ® feature, Mark Bakaj scored his third win of 2008 in 20-lap SK Light Modified feature, Carla Botticello scored her first career Limited Late Model victory in the 20-lap Limited Late Model feature, and Scott Roy took down win number two of the 2008 season in the 15-lap DARE Stock feature event.

The 100-lap Late Model saw Dillon Moltz cement himself as the king of the extra distance race by scoring an extra distance sweep by outdueling Ryan Posocco and Michael Bennett in a wild finish. The N.E. Dodge Dealers Late Model 100 took the green with Scott Cook setting the early pace. Cook led the first 8 laps before giving way to Dillon Moltz for the lead on lap-9. Moltz then held the race lead until lap-62 when Woody Pitkat moved to the front of the field. Pitkat’s time out front was short as Moltz took the lead back on lap-68. Moltz was still in front of the field when the caution came out with 94 laps complete and set up a wild finish. On the lap-95 restart, Michael Bennett moved from third to the lead in a power move with Moltz falling back to second and Ryan Posocco third. Bennett drifted up the track on lap-97 and Moltz moved back to the lead with Posocco in tow. Posocco was not able to get by Moltz over the final 2 laps and Moltz took the checkered flag for his fourth victory of the 2008 season. Posocco finished second with Pitkat, Bennett, and Dave Wray rounding out the top-5.
