SEEKONK, Mass. — Adam Pettey, a non-playoff driver in the Sunoco Drive For The Cup, returned to victory lane on Saturday night in the Helger’s South Coast Power Equipment Sportsman. Pettey rocketed to the top spot early in the 30-lap race, then held off division dominator Chad Baxter in the final laps on a green-white-checkered restart to score another feature win.
Baxter wasn’t far behind at the checkered flag, finishing in the runner-up spot, and making his presence felt, guaranteeing a Final Four spot. Scott Serydynski Jr. and Chris Rioux followed in third and fourth in the race, while Ed Perry joins Baxter in the Final Four, scoring a fifth-place finish.
Colby Lambert finished sixth, good enough to give him a shot at the title next week. Steve Axon was followed by Jimmy Silvia across the line, with Craig Pianka right behind them — Craig will be the final of the four to race for the championship next week.
The final race of the Helger’s South Coast Power Equipment Sportsman 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.
