Seekonk, MA — Seekonk Speedway, for the third time, attempted to get their opening day program completed. But even a few rain showers weren’t going to delay us again. Dave Darling picked up his 22nd career Pro Stock win in dominating fashion. Starting on the pole after the top 6 were inverted by a blind draw, Dave was out for a Sunday drive. While he dominated the event from the pole, there were many challengers for the lead. Sophomore Jake Vanada of Berkeley was the first to challenge Dave for the lead, but couldn’t hang on from his outside pole start. He would get another chance, as Wayne Dion brought out the first caution with a spin on lap 1, forcing the Houle Motorsports driver out of the event.
Darling and Vanada would try it again, but Darling was up for the challenge. Vanasse squeezed under Vanada and put the Team V Transport Chevy into the runner up position. The second caution fell on lap 4, when the K Spencer Electric Chevy of Ken Spencer scraped the outside wall and came to a stop in turn 1. Vanasse settled into the runner up spot with Mike Brightman, Rob Murphy and Tom Scully Jr. rounding out the top five when the third caution came out on lap 15.
