SEEKONK, Mass. — For much of Friday’s Seekonk Grand Prix Bandolero Outlaw feature, it looked like Ben Moribito might be on his way to a second straight win. But, when the checkered flag went into the air, it was Ryan Vanasse Jr. rolling across the line first, for his eighth win of the season in the No. 11.
Vanasse worked the outside lane for much of the race. Once he got out front, he had to hold off his cousin, Collin Vanasse, who was right there on his bumper. Ryan was able to accomplish the task to add another win to his second in the first race of the first round of the Sunoco Drive For The Cup and kick-off his championship bid on top.
Collin finished second, a strong opening to his own playoff bid. Andrew Gomes charged to the front to finish third, with Brent Robidoux and Bryson Robidoux, brothers, finishing fourth and fifth. Nathan Rioux, Mikey LeFort III, Brody Wakefield, Zachary Keith and Moribito finished off the top-10 after 15 laps.
The Seekonk Grand Prix Bandolero Outlaws will return to the track on Friday, September 15, for the second race in the first round of the Sunoco Drive For The Cup.
