BARRE, Vt. — Patience was a virtue for Scott Dragon on WDEV/Calkins Portable Toilet Night at Thunder Road Int’l Speedbowl.
Dragon started 17th in the 22-car field, but took over the lead with 12 laps to go and pulled away for the win in the 85-lap late model feature.
The early part of the event belonged to Eric Badore, who took over the lead from Darrell Morin on a 20th-lap restart. Badore opened up 10-car length lead as Morin and Cody Blake waged a side-by-side battle for second place for over 40 laps. Dragon finally moved into the top three on the 63rd lap, quickly overtook Phil Scott for second, then claimed the lead from Badore on lap 74.
Scott finished second, with Badore third. Nick Sweet, Jason Corliss, Kyle Pembroke, Blake, Trampas Demers, Tyler Cahoon and Mike Bailey rounded out the top 10.
Joe Steffen finished in the top four in all three segments to claim the overall victory in the Bond Auto Tiger Sportsmen Triple 20s. Steffen had a third and two fourths for a combined 11 points, and earned his first victory of the season and the 14th Tiger Sportsmen victory of his career.
For the second week in a row, a rookie claimed the Allen Lumber Street Stocks feature. Cooper Bouchard took the checkered flag over a 24-car field in the 25-lap main event. Bouchard started in second position, took the lead early, and stayed in front for the remainder of the race.
