There was a little bit of everything in the second Pro Stock race of the 2022 season at Seekonk Speedway, but in the end, Tommy Adams was holding the trophy for the first time in his career on Saturday, May 21. Adams started towards the front of the field and was chasing the back bumper of Dave Darling early, but contact sent the two of them to the rear of the pack.
On their way back to the front, they battled again for third in the final 10 laps, and when Adams bested Darling in that race, it ended up being part of the winning move. A caution inside the final five laps gave Adams one more shot, with Ryan Vanasse and Bobby Pelland III on the front row. Adams used a bump to the back bumper of Vanasse, got under him, and rocketed to Victory Lane for the first time in his Pro Stock career.
Vanasse would finish second, coming oh-so-close to his first win of the year, while Pelland settled for third. Darling came back through the field to finish fourth, with Mike Brightman rounding out the top-five.
Colbey Fournier was sixth, followed by Mark Jenison, Ryan Lineham, Kenny Spencer and Tom Scully Jr.
The Pro Stocks will return to the track on Saturday, June 4, for a 60-lap feature in round one of the Everett’s Auto Parts Triple Crown Series. The division will be off next week for the Memorial Day Thrill Show. For more information on Seekonk Speedway, visit SeekonkSpeedway.com and follow the track on social media for the latest updates.
