BRADFORD, VT – After winning a DIRTcar Sportsman Modified feature and a Sprint Car heat race earlier in the night, Chris Donnelly of Piermont, NH turned in a dominating performance in the Sprint Cars of New England feature, coming from tenth place to earn his second consecutive SCoNE feature win. His sole non-win came in his final race of the night, when he started deep in the pack and “only” finished third in the second Modified feature.
Kevin Chaffee of Fairlee, VT employed his customary unobtrusive, methodical and craftsmanlike style to advance from sixth to the runner-up spot while Dan Douville of Bridgewater, NH sliced and diced his way through the field to finish third, after an early race incident caused him to restart tailback.
“The car was just about perfect tonight, it would go wherever I needed to go,” Donnelly said, downplaying his own role in the outcome. “We’re running a new Triple X chassis and I found a set-up that really matches my driving style, even though we had to make some big changes from what Triple X recommends. I built the shocks myself and the first week of the season they were just awful. I pulled them off and rebuilt them and we’ve been going great ever since.”
