Lascuola wins first career SYRA feature. Ladyga, Cestodio also win. Nocella wins NEMA Lite feature.

Seekonk, MA — In a battle that came down to the last couple of laps, Nick Lascuola of Brockton MA held off Dave Hutchins Jr for his first career win on Friday, July 10. Bob Perry jumped out to the early lead from his pole position, and set the pace in the early going. Willy Sanchez slid under Lascuola and moved into second by lap three. Lascuola made a bid for second, when Dave Hutchins and Jason Enos split Sanchez and made it three wide. Enos got crossed up and slid into Sanchez, who had to chase the car up the racetrack. Enos spun, while Sanchez held on, and the caution came out for the first time.  

As the green came out, Perry slid his WM Perry mount up, opening up the bottom lane with Lascuola taking over for one lap, with Perry coming back on lap 7. Lascuola and Perry continued to race side by side, swapping position back and forth until the caution came out again when Jason Enos and Carl Medeiros got together.

We succeeded as a nation because of our ability to join together and depend on one another. That is what secured our freedom. Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Happy Fourth of July! I hope your picnic went well. I also hope you took some time to remember what it took for us to break away and become an independent nation. It took our willingness to work together, agree on one common purpose and sacrifice everything we had to make it work. Sound like a race team?
