SEEKONK, Mass. — Story for track program by Race Chaser Online New England Correspondent Kyle Souza — Seekonk Speedway photo —
We have seen some amazing racing here at Seekonk Speedway in 2015. From the Opening Day Pro Stock thriller that saw Tom Scully Jr. carry the checkered flag to the three-wide battles on Fast Friday in the SYRA cars, the racing has been top notch.
Let us not forget, we had one of the best modified shows New England has ever seen on July 1 with the Tri Track Open Modified Series. More than 50 cars packed the pit area and we had more than five qualifying races just to get into the big $10,000 paying show. Kudos to all of the staff and management for making that happen.
Don’t look now, but the season is almost over. We only have a handful of points races remaining here in 2015 but that will not be in your mind when you are here. These drivers will continue to do what they do week in and week out and show us some of the best battles in history.
It will only give you the extra incentive to come each week and watch the battles play out right in front of you. If you have not been here for a Fast Friday yet this season, this is the time.
We have seen some absolutely thrilling battles in the Nick’s Pit Stop Legends on Fast Friday this season. More often then not, that 25 lap feature event is worth the price of admission itself. Chris Robbins grabbed his first career win a couple of weeks ago and there are so many drivers that can be next on the list. would have to say Brandon Martinez, the man we call Batman will be next up.
The Pro Stock field has seen some great car counts and some great racing all year long. Kevin Casper has two feature wins after his big one last week but there are still many drivers seeking their first of the season and time is running out. Can Mike Brightman go into Everett’s Auto Parts Victory Lane this weekend? Can Kyle Casper grab his first Pro Stock victory and rebound from some mid-season struggles?
Watch those point battles down the stretch. If you are interested in seeing the latest standings in the middle of the week before you get here to the track, head onto the track website at www.seekonkspeedway.com and click on point standings.
With the mid-summer months flying on by, thank a staff member while you are here this weekend. If it wasn’t for you the fans and the staff, the drivers would have absolutely nothing to come out here and race for every weekend. The staff gives 110% each and every Friday, Saturday and that occasional Sunday afternoon Thrill Show.
Thank’s to Phil’s Propane, Propane Plus, Miller Lite, NBC 10, WPRI 12, Pepsi and so many more of our track sponsors for their continued support on the 2015 racing season and beyond. 70 years is a LONG time to be in action.
Thanks for coming out again this weekend race fans. Sit back, but not to far back and enjoy some of the best racing that the New England racing scene has to offer.
