Thompson, CT — On a night when Thompson Speedway was to have been silent, there was plenty of activity on the 5/8th mile oval on Thursday night with Keith Rocco and Les Rose among those taking down victories. After experiencing three rain outs thus far this season, Thompson Speedway management added a full slate of NASCAR Whelen All-American Series competition that included a 50 lapper for the Sunoco Modifieds.
Keith Rocco of Wallingford, CT, showed perseverance as he came home the victor in the 50-lapper for the Sunoco Modifieds. Les Rose, Jr. of Southbridge, MA, took home the Super Late Model victory. Tommy O’Sullivan of Springfield, MA, broke into victory lane with his first feature win of the 2009 season in the Late Models. Hometown racer Paul Coutu, Jr. of Thompson, CT, scored an exciting win in the Limited Sportsman division while Glenn Boss of Danielson, CT, turned his luck around with a victory in the TIS Modifieds on Thursday night. Brad Caddick of New London, CT, was declared the winner of the Mini Stock main event after post race technical inspection.
