SEEKONK, Mass. — Weekend Preview by Race Chaser Online New England Correspondent Kyle Souza for Seekonk Speedway — Seekonk Speedway/Lester Gray photo —

Welcome back race fans! Last weekend we saw some great racing action on both our Fast Friday and Super Saturday program. Friday, it was a thrilling battle in the SYRA 750 that really grabbed my eyes. The field battled three and four wide on multiple occasions and Taylor Bowser made some impressive moves in route to her first win of the season. Congrats go out to her and her dad on a job well done.

The Pit Party on Saturday was a huge success. It was great to see the fans down on the track showing support for the drivers and grabbing some of the candy that the drivers brought to show their thanks. Kudos to all involved in making that happen and all of the fans for coming out.

It was also great to see Manny Dias return to Street Stock Victory Lane after a long, LONG layoff. Congrats go out to Manny and his crew on an awesome setup and drive on the track.

Congrats to TJ Thompson in the Legend Cars and Charlie Rose in the Late Models for winning Triple Crown races last weekend as well.

Now.. Onto this week at the Action Track…

The Fast Friday series will continue with round one of the Phil’s Propane Triple Crown Series for the Pure Stock class. Those drivers come to the track each and every week fighting for every inch they can get and put on a thrilling show. With the added five laps and the added incentive to try and chase the Triple Crown championship, fans should be on the edge of their seats for the whole night.

Watch for Tommy Blackwell to come back from a terrible crash last week with a vengeance. He has been shut out of Victory Lane for a long time and it would be great to see him carry the checkers. Can Mark Murphy start his road towards two straight Triple Crown titles?

Joining the Pure Stocks will be both of the SYRA classes, the Sport 4 and the Nick’s Pit Stop Legends. The Legends have seen two different winners in three races. Will we see another one this week?

On Saturday night the Pro Stocks take center stage in round one of their Phil’s Propane Triple Crown Series. The race will be 75 laps in distance and will really show the fans exactly who can use the strategy to their advantage. The long distance races in the Pro Stocks are really a matter of saving your tires long enough to make sure you have some steam left for the final run to the finish.

David Darling normally comes along in the three extra distance races and puts a charge on the rest of the field. However, there are multiple drivers that will be in contention that could have a shot at knocking him off the top. Could Kyle Casper put a week of bad luck behind him and break into Victory Lane? Could Freddy Astle finally take the money off his back and return to Everett’s Auto Parts Victory Circle?

Until next week race fans… Keep it off the wall and I will see you at the Action Track!
