SEEKONK, Mass. — Ryan Lineham returned to prime form in the Helger’s South Coast Power Equipment Sportsman on Saturday night. Lineham used the inside lane, and the outside lane, to work his way up through the field in the 30-lap race in round one of the Sunoco Drive For The Cup, and became the first non-playoff driver to win a race on the night.
While Lineham won for the first time in a few years in the Sportsman, the race for second was close at the end, with playoff drivers Scott Serydynski Jr. and Colby Lambert crossing second and third on the podium. Chad Baxter, the division domination driver again in 2022, had a flat tire early, but was able to race his way back up to a fourth-place finish, surviving to round two. Sparky Arsenault, a multiple-time former champion, returned to action and rounded out the top-five.
Chris Rioux finished in sixth, followed by Ed Perry, Joe Kohler, Crystal Serydysnki and Ed Flanagan Jr.
The Helger’s South Coast Power Equipment Sportsman 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
