Former Series Champ, George Sherman, Captures Win at Lee

Lee, NH — The RF Logic/ Bot-L Gas Pro Four Modifieds of New England visited Lee USA Speedway this Friday for their second race within a week. Dave Richardi and Phil Lausier took down the checkers in the heat events. Stan Mertz, #16, had mechanical malfunctions in the practice sessions and was unable to take the green.

George Sherman and Lausier lead the field to the green in the 25 lap event. By lap three the caution was already thrown when D. Richardi went spinning into the grass at the entrance of turn one. On the restart, Lausier held strong on the outside, while #12 Rob Richardi, Jr. tucked in line behind Sherman for second place. By lap four, Sherman began pulling away from the rest of the pack, while the battle for second heated up between Richardi, Jr. and Brian Vincent. Richardi, Jr. fought hard on the outside for several laps, until he fell off the pace a bit on lap 10 and then settled into seventh position behind Cory Cleary, who was driving #07x, usually piloted by Robin Berghman.

At the half way point Sherman lead the single file field of Vincent, Adam Norton, Tyler Anderson, Lausier, Cleary, Richardi, Jr., D. Richardi, Mark Charette, and Billy Joerres. On Lap 14, Sherman had began to lap the back of the pack and held a full straightaway lead over field by lap 17. Lausier took a short ride through the grass on lap 19, but was able to keep it rolling and join the pack without caution, allowing Sherman to keep his monumental lead over second place finisher Adam Norton.

Sherman grabbed the checkers for the first time in 2010, followed by Norton, Vincent, Anderson, and Cleary.
