Seekonk, MA — On Friday, August 14, Branden Dion continued to follow in his father’s footsteps by becoming a winner at Seekonk Speedway. His father Scott is a multi time winner in the Late Model division. Branden picked up his first career win in the Seekonk Youth Racing Association 600 class. Branded started on the pole in the 25 lap feature, and survived a restart on lap 11, and kept Jason Enos II at bay for the entire event.
Point leader Dave Hutchens raced with Nick Lascoula for several laps early in the event, when Willie Sanchez moved into the top five and challenged the two former winners for the third position.
