SEEKONK, Mass. — AJ Manuel returned to the Everett’s Auto Parts Sport 4 division and had quite the task in front of him, but was able to pull it off. Manuel started deep in the field in round one of the Everett’s Auto Parts Triple Crown, but worked his way to the front after being forced to pit for a flat right-front tire.
Manuel charged to the lead, passing Jarrod Freitas for the top spot on lap 23 of the 30-lap feature, and drove away into the sunset to pickup the victory. Crystal Murray, who is inside the same team and had won the first two races of the season, charged her way to the front to finish second after going to the rear at the halfway point. Murray leads the standings after three weeks.
Henry Lavallee finished third, working his way to the front late, as the veteran continues to impress in 2022. Freitas scored another top-five finishing fourth, while Mikey LeFort returned and rounded out the top-five.
Tyler Duhancik was sixth, followed by Ron Gajdowski, Daniel Hayes, Justin Leduc and Christine Cavallaro.
The Everett’s Auto Parts Sport 4’s will return to the track on Friday, June 17, for another 25-lap feature. For more information on Seekonk Speedway, visit SeekonkSpeedway.com and follow the track on social media.
