SEEKONK, Mass. — For the second straight week, Craig Pianka was in the right place, at the right time, with speed to get the job done. In Saturday’s 25-lap Helger’s South Coast Power Equipment Sportsman feature, Pianka raced to the front of the pack, and when the caution flew just after the white flag, setting up a green-white-checkered finish, Pianka took advantage.
Using the outside lane, the veteran drove the No. 4 to victory — passing leader Adam Petty to take the impressive victory. It was Pianka’s third win in four Sportsman races early this season, flexing his muscle in the competitive class.
Petty, who dominated much of the race, had to settle for second on this night, while Jimmy “Pepe” Silvia had a flashback from the past, working the third groove to the podium. Colby Lambert and Steve Axon finished the top-five.
Scott Serydynski Jr. finished sixth, followed by Donald Perry, Tyler Almeida, Crystal Serydysnki and Cody Tripp.
