Douville rides the top for SCoNE win; Older, Severance carry checkered flags
WEST HAVEN, VT – Kenny Tremont Jr. thought he had done it all in dirt track Modified stock car racing, but found out that there were still some “firsts” left for him to achieve. His victory on Vermont Army National Guard Night at The Dirt Track at Devil’s Bowl Speedway on Sunday, August 9 was the headline moment of a four-division card for the Berlin Optical Expressions Dirt Track Series that also saw Danny Douville, Darrell Older, and Justin Severance win.
A winner of more than 300 races and over 30 championships during his long career, Tremont went wire-to-wire in the 35-lap feature for the Liberty Street Discount Beverage & Deli Sportsman Modifieds on Sunday. He topped a field of 25 starters to become the first driver to win more than one feature race in the Sportsman class since the new 3/10-mile Dirt Track opened at Devil’s Bowl Speedway in September 2014.
The win completed a four-race weekend sweep for Tremont, which he believed to be a career-first; the West Sand Lake, NY veteran won Friday’s Modified feature at Albany-Saratoga Speedway, took both the Big Block Modified and Small Block Modified features at Lebanon Valley Speedway on Saturday, and bookended the run with the Sportsman score at Devil’s Bowl.
