PARRITT WIRES 95 LATE MODEL FEATURE AT SPEEDWAY 95

Brenton Parritt of Steuben took off from the outside pole position in the 35 lap Dysart’s Late Model feature at Speedway 95 Sunday afternoon and held the lead through two restarts to post his first win of the young season. Parritt was challenged by Duane Seekins of Stockton Springs in the early going and on the restarts, but Seekins eventually settled into the second spot, where he finished. It wasn’t an easy second place finish for Seekins, though, as he faced tough competition from both Josh St. Clair of Liberty and Dale Swoboda of Hermon. Both St. Clair and Swoboda were using the inside groove to move past traffic as they both started near the rear of the field due to their top three finishes last week. Swoboda and St. Clair had passed Seekins and were battling for the second spot , Swoboda on the outside and St. Clair on the inside, when they came together on the front stretch on lap 25, eliminating both cars for the remainder of the event. Seekins then regained the second spot and held it to the end. Bangor’s Doug Day finished the race in third, followed by John Kalel II of Orrington in fourth and Nick Kinney of Danforth in fifth. Seekins won the day’s 15 lap qualifier.
