Waterford, CT — NASCAR Whelen All-American Series action was back at the Waterford Speedbowl Saturday evening. Six divisions were in competition on the night, with Wallingford’s Keith Rocco, the defending division champion, returning to the winner’s circle in the SK Modifieds®.

Brian Andronaco Jr. of Wilton was the winner in a very exciting Bob Valenti Auto Mall Late Model race, his first on the season. Ed Puleo of Branford went back-to-back, winning another Street Stock feature on the year, his third overall. A first time winner took the checkered flag in the Mini Stock feature with third generation racer Jeffrey Cembruch of Wallingford capturing the event. Rounding out the night’s winners were Farmington racer Dana Dimatteo in the Legends Cars and Taylor Martin of Windham, NH, who won the Bandolero feature.

Rocco wasted no time making moves to get out front in the 35-lap SK Modified® feature. Glenn Pressel was the early leader, taking command at the initial start of the race. Tom Abele Jr., Tucker Reynolds Jr., and Rocco bolted by the inside of Joe Perry to make up the top-four positions as the field completed lap-3.
