Packard, Fisher win Late Model features
WEST HAVEN, VT – A two-day delay at Devil’s Bowl Speedway was worth the wait for a handful of NASCAR Whelen All-American Series drivers on Sunday, August 24. Eight different stock car racers carried the checkered flag after twin features at the annual “Double Stack Night” presented by Sugar & Spice Restaurant, which was postponed from Friday by rain.
Jason Durgan of Morrisonville, NY won a rough opening 25-lap main event for the Bond Auto Parts Modified division. After starting fourth, Durgan nosed past Jason Reome to take the lead at lap 14, then survived the third and final restart of the race four laps later to cruise to his second victory of the season. Vince Quenneville, Jr. finished second, and Joey Roberts made a nifty three-wide move in the final corner to take third place. Jessey Mueller was fourth with Jamie LaFountain fifth.
Durgan’s win came at the right time as the season begins to wind down; Durgan entered the race weekend ranked 21st in NASCAR Whelen All-American Series national standings and a tight second in the battle for the National Rookie of the Year presented by Jostens title.
