Seekonk, MA – In the 40 lap Pro Stock feature, Kevin Casper of Somerset held on and picked up his first career Pro Stock win. Casper jumped out front on the opening lap, and needed a timely caution on lap 34 to hold on to the lead. Over the course of the race, Casper had several challengers, including younger brother Kyle Casper. The pair battled for several laps before Mike Brightman moved into the runner up spot. Brightman put some pressure on Casper, but was being chased down by Tom Scully Sr. The pair ran one-two-three for the middle portion of the race before Ryan Vanasse worked his way on the outside, and edged past Casper as they crossed the start finish line on lap 35. Fortunately for Kevin, the caution came out before the lap was completed, and Vanasse was forced to try it again on the outside.
As they came back for the green, Casper and Vanasse raced side by side for the final five laps, with Casper edging Vanasse for the win. Ryan would hold on to finish second, with Brightman, Dave Darling and Tom Scully Sr rounding out the top five.
Jeramee Lille of West Warwick, RI took over the lead on a lap 30 restart, and never looked back as he picked up his second win of the season. Ron Barboza of Warren jumped out to the lead early, but on a lap five restart, the tires spun, and he spun out in front of the field, collecting several cars, including Dave Hutchins Jr and Bobby Pelland III. Dylan Estrella of North Attleboro took over the lead, and set a comfortable pace over the rest of the field.
