Lindeman’s First Truck Win at Thompson Speedway

Andy Lindeman of Poestenkill, NY, came on late in the New England Truck Series (NETS) feature event to score the victory. The NETS had a short field but there was no shortage of action; especially in the early going. The #16 Lee-Boy sponsored Chevy of Willy Auchmoody, took advantage of his front row starting position to show the way from the drop of the green flag.

The #83 FEB sponsored Chevy of Gee Perry had rocketed from his fourth starting position to run second on the opening lap, immediately, Perry was locked in a heated battle for the lead with Auchmoody.

Starting the feature from the back, the # 0 New England ATV sponsored Chevy of Howard Hurricane Payne, wasted no time in pursuit of the third position in tow with Perry. Coming out of turn four, on lap four, Payne moved up into second position with Perry on his inside in third, making contact sending Payne into the infield putting him down two laps.
