Perley Caps His Championship Year with a World Series ISMA Win

Thompson, CT – Chris Perley capped off his 2008 ISMA championship with his fifth win at Thompson Speedway’s World Series of Racing on Sunday. It was his fifth win of the ISMA portion of that racing event and his sixth win overall in that race’s history. Trailing him was his teammate, driving the Vic Miller 71, and 4-time World Series victor himself, Bentley Warren. Perley’s main competition came from Dave Shullick Jr. who led, then ran second to the 11 until, with less than ten laps to go, spun off turn four. Lou Cicconi was able to stay in second for one circuit until Warren took over.

Perley described his race. ” I was running strong. The car was awesome and I kind of got a little lax in traffic. I was just trying to pick my way through and trying not to nick up the car because obviously you have to ‘finish to finish first’ or something like that. Then Dave woke me up there for a minute. I guess then he spun himself out. It’s too bad. It would have been a good battle between him and I. I know that he was pretty strong. That’s why I wanted to get by him as early as I could. I just love coming to Thompson. This place is a blast and we’ve had a lot of luck here, which of course is half of it. With great crew, great sponsors, and great engines, the car just keeps running. I can’t thank everybody enough for coming out to see us today.”
