SEEKONK, Mass. — To celebrate Independence Day weekend, Seekonk Speedway will be in action for two days of excitement on Friday, July 7 and Saturday, July 8. On Friday, Fast Friday returns to the track, then Saturday night, the track celebrates the holiday with a fireworks show and more during the Independence Day Thrill Show.
On Fast Friday, the Seekonk Grand Prix Bandolero Bandits and Outlaws take center stage with the Everett’s Auto Parts Triple Crown Series second round, while the Helger’s South Coast Power Equipment Pure Stocks, Nick’s Pit Stop Legends Cars and Sport 4’s will also be on track for normal feature events.
The Independence Day Thrill Show includes the best fireworks show presented by MEGA Disposal in southern New England to wrap the event, but multiple divisions are on the track first. The East Coast Towing & Recovery Spectator Drags will be on the track along with the Insane Chain Race, Crazy 8 Figure Races, Car & Truck Enduro Races, Car & Truck Enduro Drags and the Powder Puff division. It’s a full southern New England night with Seekonk Speedway thrills and spills beginning at 5 p.m. on Saturday.
Both Bandolero divisions will race in the second round of the Triple Crown Series to help set the final four in both divisions to battle for that crown at the end of August. In the Bandits, Parker Davis, Nick Uhrig Jr. and Sam Macedo have all won so far this season. Is Mike Hanafin next for his first career win? In the Outlaws, Ryan Vanasse. Jr has three wins so far, with Brent Robidoux scoring the other victory. Will Collin Vanasse or Bryson Robiodux add their names to the list this week for their first career wins? Can someone else bump to the top of the class in their 15-lap race?
The Sport 4 division is one of the top Seekonk divisions when it comes to parody, with four different winners in four weeks. Jarrod Freitas, Mikey LeFort, Crystal Murray and Tyler Duhancik have all been to Victory Lane. Can someone make it five-for-five? Or will we see our first repeat winner of the year in their 25-lap feature?
On Fast Friday, the Pure Stock division has mostly run through Scott Cestodio. With three wins in four races, he was stopped last time on the track by Danny Massa. Names like Ethan Souza, Mike Henriques and others have also been close to Victory Lane. In the Legends Cars, Brenden LaBelle has three wins in four races, with Jacob Burns scoring the other win. Can a name like Chase Silvia, Josh Parsons, Mason Tessier or someone else add their name this Friday in the 25-lap Legends Cars feature?

Fast Friday racing begins 7 p.m. Independence Day Thrill Show tickets are $25 in advance or $28 at the track, with youth 6-12 $12 in advance or $15 day of show and kids five and under and parking free.
