SEEKONK, Mass. — In one of the closest finishes in the history of the Seekonk Grand Prix Bandolero divisions, Brent Robidoux edged Ryan Vanasse Jr. by a few inches to win the 15-lap feature on Friday night. Robidoux and Vanasse raced hard through the final few laps, but when they took the white flag, it was Robidoux who slid up just enough to give Vanasse a lane, and the race was on.
Down the backstretch and through the final two turns, they both gave it everything they had. And in the end, Robidoux edged Vanasse by .002 in the scoring to take the win in the first race of the Everett’s Auto Parts Triple Crown Series for the division. Vanasse was one of the first people to the car to congratulate Robidoux on the win, showing true sportsmanship in Seekonk’s Youth Racing division. Vanasse won in the first race and finished second in week two.
Andrew Gomes had a solid third-place finish, with Collin Vanasse and Dylan Calabro finishing off the top-five. RJ Murphy was sixth, followed by Bryson Robidoux, Mikey LeFort III, Zachary Keith and Zacharias Kelley.
The Seekonk Grand Prix Bandolero Outlaws will return to the track on Friday, June 9 for another 15-lap race. For more information on Seekonk Speedway, visit SeekonkSpeedway.com and follow the track on social media for the latest updates.
