Craig Pianka was in the right place, at the right time, to capture his second victory of the season in the Helger’s South Coast Power Equipment Sportsman at Seekonk Speedway on Saturday, May 21. Pianka, the one they nickname “Captain Fun” seemed to be content to finish third in the 25-lap race, but when Ed Perry and Steve Axon got together racing for the lead late, Pianka took advantage.
Pianka worked to the top spot on the restart at lap 23 and never looked back, pulling away from the pack in the final laps to take down the win. Scott Serydysnki Jr. was second, posting a strong run in the No. 22, his first podium of the season. Doug Benoit, a former Fast Friday Pure Stock champion, jumped to third at the finish.
Colby Lambert and defending division champion Chad Baxter completed the top-five. Tyler Almeida was sixth, followed by Adam Petty, Vinny Pangelinan, Adam Giacomozzi and Kaleb Marcou.
The Helger’s South Coast Power Equipment Sportsman will return to the track on Saturday, June 4, for another 25-lap feature. The division will be off next week for the Memorial Day Thrill Show.
