Vinnie Arrenegado may not have been to Victory Lane in the first two weeks of the Seekonk Speedway Late Model season, but he picked a good time to get back to the front of the pack. Arrenegado scored the victory in round one of the Everett’s Auto Parts Triple Crown, a 45-lap feature on Saturday, May 21, dominating the second half of the race en route to the victory.
Arrenegado bested Gerry DeGasparre Jr. on the final restart of the night, and pulled away in the final laps to Victory Lane. DeGasparre, one week after winning his first race of the year, would finish second in the extra-distance race, while Charlie Rose worked his way to the front and finished third from the rear.
Jacob “Rowdy” Burns ran inside the top-five for the duration of the night and finished fourth, while Richie Murray scored his third straight top-five finish to open the year, finishing fifth.
Reese Bogue was sixth, followed by Chase Belcher, Josh Hedges, Paul Lallier and Mark Jenison.
The Late Models will return to the track on Saturday, June 4, for a 30-lap feature. The division will be off next week for the Memorial Day Thrill Show. For more information on Seekonk Speedway, visit SeekonkSpeedway.com and follow the track on social media for the latest updates.
