After coming up short on opening day, Barry Shaw Jr. wasn’t going to mess around in week two of Chaz Auto Body Sport Truck racing at Seekonk Speedway. Shaw started near the front of the field in round one of the Everett’s Auto Parts Triple Crown Series, a 35-lap feature, quickly taking the lead from Amy Arsenault.
However — from there — Shaw had to fight the charges of Radical Rick Martin, who worked the outside on multiple restarts over the second half of the race, and made it a battle to remember. Martin edged out Shaw a few times, but wasn’t able to do it on the right lap, when the checkered flag was in the air.
Shaw bested Martin to the finish, locking himself into the Final Four of the Triple Crown Series with the victory, while Martin finished second, and former division champion Mike Duarte was third for the second straight week.
Mike Cavallaro, the opening day winner, finished fourth, followed by Brittany Campbell, posting her second straight top-five to open the year. Rick Albernaz was sixth, followed by Jake Vanada, Tom Scully III, Amy Arsenault and Lenny Guy, wrapping the top-10 in a 16 Truck field.
The Chaz Auto Body Sport Trucks will return to the track on Saturday, May 21, for another 25-lap feature. For more information on Seekonk Speedway, visit SeekonkSpeedway.com and follow the track on social media for the latest updates.
