Pure Stocks Whiskey Tango Foxtrot Special
Capping off Friday night’s excitement was the annual Pure Stock “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot”
(WTF) race, featuring stars from Seekonk’s Saturday divisions and beyond at the wheel of a pure stock for a voluntary 25-lap exhibition.
13 cars joined in the fun, and the drivers headlining the excitement were Dick Benoit, Corey Fanning, Ed Perry, Gerry DeGasparre Jr., Colby Lambert, Adam Pettey, Barry Shaw, Kaleb Marcou, Derek Gluchaki, Mike Brightman, Tom Scully III, Jake Johnson, and Manny Dias.
Green flag waved and Fanning jumped out front fast, wheeling the No. 28 Austin Flanagan machine, quickly building a lead that held true for the entirety of the 25 laps. Perry and DeGasparre gave chase to the lead early on, using Mike Rotundo’s No. 12 and Don Courtemanche’s No. 77, respectively, to do so.
Lambert looked to ride the wave of his brother’s championship drive at the helm of the No. 15 Pure Stock, while Pettey wheeled the “Wild Man” Greg Perry’s No. 0, and Barry Shaw the No. 02 belonging to Joe Gardner.
After 25 laps in the books, Corey Fanning took down the win. Perry and DeGasparre threw down for an incredible battle for second place, with Perry prevailing in the end. Lambert followed closely, crossing the line fourth, as Adam Pettey rounded out the top five.
