SEEKONK, Mass. -- For the first time in 2022, Karlin Levesque was celebrating in Victory Lane on Friday night at Seekonk Speedway. Levesque, who originally passed Henry Lavallee for the lead just after halfway, had to pass him again in the final laps, but wasn’t going to be denied en route to the win.
Behind the wheel of the No. 44, Levesque started inside the top-five and quickly made his way to the front. Lavallee got to the lead quickly from the pole position and seemed to be the dominant force early. But, it wasn’t long before Levesque got to the front and challenged for the lead. He passed to the top spot on lap 10, then Lavallee was able to get back around on a restart at lap 18.
Levesque would get back to the bumper and pass for the lead with four laps to go, never being challenged over the final few laps. Lavallee settled for second — another podium run for the veteran — who is coming close to returning to Victory Lane.
Crystal Murray finished third, making it four podium runs in four races, while Tyler Duhancik and Matt Pion finished the top-five. Taylor Bowser was sixth, followed by Jarrod Freitas, Christine Cavallaro and Jacob Budznya.
The Everett's Auto Parts Sport 4 division will return to the track on Friday, June 24, for another 25-lap feature.
