Seekonk, MA — Steve Axon of Attleboro, MA is thanking two of his competitors for a big win in the Street Stock division this week. From his third place position with just one half lap to the checkered flag, and Ryan Lineham and Scott Serydynski just a quarter lap from the finish line, he watched the unthinkable happen: The duo, leading the 30-lap feature and battling for position all the way, began trading paint in the third turn, then spun out of control, up and into the wall between turns three and four. Axon then romped home past the carnage to the checkered flag.
Axon started ninth on the grid and was up to fourth by the tenth lap. Coming out of a lap 9 restart, Axon had Greg Perry, Jr, Chris DeMoura and Rey Lovelace in his sights; Lineham was back in the pack, going three wide to make up ground in a big hurry when Elmer Wing’s motor died on lap 10. On the restart, Lineham quickly went three wide again from his seventh position to head for the front. Serydynski took the same route from his eleventh place slot, and the two began to overtake and pass the leaders. Perry and DeMoura were door-to-door battling for first. Craig Pianka, Ronald Lum and Tyler Jarvenpaa got tied together between turns one and turn, bringing out a lot of smoke and the caution. DeMoura earned the pole for the restart for having his nose past Perry’s on the last crossing of the start-finish line.
