Thompson, CT — After 50-laps of exciting Sunoco Modified racing it was a familiar face in Thompson International Speedway’s victory lane as Ted Christopher of Plainville, CT, scored the victory in the division’s marquee event. Before last week Larry Gelinas of Buxton, ME, had never won a race at Thompson. After this week’s race, winning Super Late Model features is becoming a habit. John Materas of Voluntown, CT, turned a last lap pass into his first Late Model feature win of the season.
Sparks were flying as Chris “Moose” Douton of Waterford, CT, earned the Limited Sportsman victory. Shane Michalski of Woodstock, CT, turned in a dominating performance to score the victory in TIS Modifieds. It was an emotional victory lane after Scott Jussaume of Danielson, CT, scored a career first in the Mini Stock night capper.
Ted Christopher of Plainville, CT, continued to be the dominating force in the Sunoco Modified division at Thompson with his sixth win of the season. The story in the Sunoco Modifieds; however, began even before the green flag flew. During the pace laps, Keith Rocco headed down pit road. He would pull his #57 machine behind the wall with reported transmission failure; never taking the green.
