SEEKONK, Mass. — The final corner of Saturday’s Pro Stock feature in round one of the Sunoco Drive For The Cup was all that mattered in the 45-lap race. Kenny Spencer had dominated the main event, leading all of the 44 laps prior and looking like he might finally shake the monkey off his back and get his first win of the season.
However, in the final corner, it all fell apart. Tommy Adams and Spencer made contact, and Spencer went spinning in front of the field. While Spencer spun, so did Adams across the line, and he collected eight-time champion Dave Darling in the process. At the end of the final results, Adams was placed to the rear for the contact, and Darling finished in the rear of the finishing cars. This meant Darling and Adams were both eliminated from the Drive For The Cup playoff contention.
The official finish showed Brightman winning followed by Tom Scully Jr., Mark Jenison, Bobby Pelland, Colbey Fournier, Ryan Vanasse, Dick Benoit, Rick Martin, Danny Thibeault and Billy Joeress.
The Pro Stocks will return to the track for round two of the Drive For The Cup presented by Sunoco Race Fuel on Saturday, September 16. For more information on Seekonk Speedway, visit SeekonkSpeedway.com and follow the track on social media for the latest updates.
