NUMBER 8: Haunted Hundred Ends Season in Style; More Than 100 Cars Show For One of Seekonk’s Top Events in Last Decade
The 2021 edition of the Haunted Hundred is one for the record books for many reasons. Seekonk Speedway played host to the championship races for the Pro All Star Series, Tri Track Open Modified Series and American-Canadian Tour, which is a remarkable statement in itself. However, on this special but chilly October afternoon, the track saw one of the largest car counts in the pit area we have seen in many years. In fact, we even had to open the pit area into the parking lot to fill all of the race cars.
It was a good problem to have.
The Pro All Star Series gave fans an incredible race, with former track champions Dylan Estrella and Angelo Belsito doing their best to defend the home turf. At the checkered, however, it was Johnny Clark taking the win with a late pass and winning the division championship in the process.
In similar style, the ACT Tour feature was a battle between Seekonk stars and invading Late Model competitors. After 100 laps, it was a thrilling finish with Ben Rowe and DJ Shaw slamming off each other on the final lap, and Rowe winning the race and the ACT title by just a few feet.
The Tri Track Modified feature was also no disappointment. Chase Dowling may have dominated the final race of the season, but former Seekonk champion Jake Johnson, making his Tour-Type Modified debut, finished inside the top-five with some dazzling moves.
The Haunted Hundred showcased the best of the invading stars and the best of Seekonk’s weekly NASCAR divisions, and we can’t wait to see it all happen again in 2022.
