Waterford, CT — Waterford Speedbowl was in action Wednesday evening to close out its Wild ‘n Wacky Wednesday season, crowning its final three champions. Charles Beal of Ledyard finished 10th in the Super X-Car to clinch the title, while the race was won by Preston’s Taylor-Marie Moran. Dan D’addario of Columbia came out on top of a wild X-Car race to take the win and the championship. Richard “Bubby” Brouwer of Waterford took the X-Modified win and championship, his second title in the division. Stonington teenager David Garbo Jr. won his second Legends Cars race in three weeks and Nick Sowa of Middletown took his fifth Bandolero win of the year.
Veteran racer Carl Blandina led the early laps of the 20-lap Legends Cars feature before Dennis Pantani took over on lap-5. Nick Ladyga moved inside Blandina for second position out of turn four when contact saw Dan Butler go around and collect George Dorothy Jr. and George Whitney just behind.
Ladyga challenged Pantani following the restart with Garbo and Troy Talman also joining the mix. Ladyga took a peek outside the leader, but Garbo filled the hole opened by Ladyga to go by both leaders and into the race lead on lap-12. Just as Garbo cleared the leaders, contact between Ladyga and Talman saw both go around in turn one and draw caution once again.
