SEEKONK, Mass. — A few weeks ago, Tyler Duhancik was exiting his car and watching it leave the track on the back of a tow truck. Friday night, in the 25-lap Sport 4 feature, Duhancik was driving backwards around the track post-race with the checkered flag in his hand for the first time this season.
Duhancik charged to the front and passed Henry Lavallee for the lead to take the victory in the No. 48. After he took the bottom and the battle began, the two raced side-by-side for many laps right down to the checkered flag. Lavallee settled for second, with Jarrod Freitas, the opening night winner, and Crystal Murray, the defending champion, right there. The four-car battle was one of the best the division has seen down the wire in many years.
Justin Leduc rounded out the top-five with pole sitter and early leader Richie Johnson in sixth. Taylor Bowser, Christine Cavallaro, Daniel Hayes and Jacob Budzyna rounding out the top-10.
The Sport 4 will return to the track after an off week from competition on Friday, July 7 for another 25-lap feature race. For more information on Seekonk Speedway, visit SeekonkSpeedway.com and follow the track on social media.
