SEEKONK, Mass. — Former Seekonk Speedway Bandolero champion Richie Helger Jr. parked his Legend Car in Victory Lane for the first time on Friday night. Helger passed Isaiah Newcomb, who had won the last three races, for the lead in the final few laps then beat him back to the line to take down his first career win in the Helger’s No. 99. After a few years of trying, Helger was on top during Fast Friday’s premiere division.
Newcomb wasn’t far behind after working his way up through the field once again, finishing second. Behind them, Kevin Davis worked his way to the third spot after 25 laps, his best career Legends Cars finish at Seekonk.
Cole Robie and Brendan LaBelle followed them in fourth and fifth. In sixth, it was Jacob Burns, with Mason Tessier, Chase Silvia, Nicholaus Bulkeley and Jimmy “Pepe” Silvia finishing off the top-10.
The Nick’s Pit Stop Legends Cars will return to the track on Friday, August 18, for the finale of the Everett’s Auto Parts Triple Crown Series, set for 30 laps. For more information on Seekonk Speedway, visit SeekonkSpeedway.com and follow the track on social media for the latest news and updates.
