SEEKONK, Mass. — For the second time in 2022, Jacob “Rowdy” Burns found his way to the front to carry the checkered flag in the Late Models on Saturday night. Burns used the outside lane to work from the bottom of the top-five to the front, rocketing past Josh Hedges for the top spot just before halfway, then driving away from the pack in the final laps to score the feature win.
Hedges led the opening laps — one week of his wedding — but Burns was able to slide around, leaving the race for second between DeGasparre and Hedges. Gerry was able to get around and finish in the runner-up spot, while Hedges finished in third. Richie Murray continued a consistent season with a top-five finish in fourth, while Vinnie Arrenegado finished out the top-five. Chase Belcher was sixth, followed by Mark Jenison, Ryan Floor, Jerammee Lillie and Luke Lebrun.
Out of the Sunoco Drive For The Cup drivers in round one, Lillie and Paul Lallier were eliminated from playoff contention.
The Late Models 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.
