SEEKONK, Mass. — Rick Martin’s sixth victory of the season in the Chaz Auto Body Sport Trucks came at the perfect time. Martin put together nearly a perfect performance in the 30-lap opener of the Sunoco Drive For The Cup and rocketed to Victory Lane, besting Jake Vanada and Mike Duarte on the podium to return to the top of the division once again.
Martin has been the top contender in the Trucks all year — now closing in on winning half of the races run so far in 2022. He drove to the front, and drove away into glory. Duarte was running second until a late caution, but Vanada was able to slide around and grab the runner-up spot by the finish.
Duarte would settle for third, followed by Barry Shaw Jr and Brittany Campbell. All five of the top-five contenders at the finish, also including sixth-place Amy Arsenault, all advanced to round two of the playoffs. Danny Thibeault finished in seventh, followed by Darryl Church, Marissa Morgan and Tyler Tomassi.
The Chaz Auto Body Sport Trucks will return to the track for round two of the Drive For The Cup presented by Sunoco Race Fuel on Saturday, September 16. For more information on Seekonk Speedway, visit SeekonkSpeedway.com and follow the track on social media for the latest updates.
