SEEKONK, Mass. — Mark Jenison wasted little time getting to the front in the Late Models on Saturday night. The driver of the No. 22 started fourth, but quickly raced to second and passed Josh Hedges on the outside for the lead. From there, Jenison drove away into the sunset in a race that didn’t see any caution flags in the final laps.
While Jenison drove away, Hedges settled for the runner-up spot, his second straight effort inside the podium to wrap the season. Richie Murray joined Jenison in the Sunoco Drive For The Cup Final Four, as the No. 08 rolled off in eighth, worked the bottom, and finished third to advance.
Luke Lebrun finished in fourth, just ahead of Chase Belcher and Gerry DeGasparre Jr. — the final two drivers who will join Jenison and Murray to race for the championship next week. Jacob Burns and Vinnie Arrenegado were the two eliminated from the playoffs, finishing in seventh and ninth in the 35-lap race.
The final race of the Late Model season will take place on Saturday, September 24 at 6 p.m. For more information on Seekonk Speedway, visit SeekonkSpeedway.com and follow the track on social media for the latest updates.
