Chris Perley Sweeps Classic 100 at Lee USA

Lee, NH — The Classic, traditionally held at Star Speedway the week after the Labor Day International Classic at Oswego, continued for the 45th time Saturday, but it was held 15 miles away from that Epping, NH venue at Lee USA. Chris Perley was the 2009 Classic champion and he defended his title taking both 50-lap segments to win the overall championship. Starting twelfth in the first 50, he traveled up through a pack of talent to take the lead on lap 33.

In the second, after a redraw of the top eight finishers from the first 50, Chris was third on the grid, a unique starting spot for the man who has dominated ISMA races for the past few years. By the time one lap was complete, the 11 was out front and the cliché, “never looked back” was never truer here as he sped to the second 50 win. The overall “Classic” championship was determined by points and Perley made the calculation easy. The title also earned him an extra $1500 bonus, added to his double victories worth $3000 each for the Vic Miller team. It was Perley’s 5th win and third consecutive of the Classic event.
