Passes Pitkat Late To Claim Whelen Modified Fall Final
STAFFORD, Conn. — Bobby Santos waited until the end to make his move and then powered past Woody Pitkat to win the CARQUEST Fall Final Sunday at Stafford Motor Speedway.
Santos made the winning pass with four laps to go en route to his seventh career NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour win for the Franklin, Mass., driver. Four of those wins have come at Stafford, including the 2010 Fall Final.
Pitkat led a race-high 128 laps at his hometown track. The Stafford, Conn., driver had a cushion of over a second late in the race before Santos cleared lapped traffic and tracked him down. Santos wound up winning by .644 seconds.
