Winslow’s Norris Willette took the lead during the 13th lap and never looked back en route to winning the 20-lap Wicked Good Vintage Racers Late Model and Modified race Saturday night at Wiscasset Speedway.
Driving the No. 8 car, Willette was in the latter half of the field early on but started picking drivers off on lap four. After passing Steve Kahler for third, Willette moved past Mike Willette, also of Winslow, for second on the inside of turn three on lap No. 5.
Norris Willette maintained his position until lap 13, where he passed Rosey Gerry and the No. 151 car along the outside of turn three for the lead. Mike Willette ultimately settled for sixth place.
In other action Saturday, Wiscasset’s Ryan Chadwick scored his second Thunder 4′s victory of the season, holding off Robert MacDonald and Bill Grover, respectively, for the win.
In the Wicked Good Vintage Racers Late Model Sportsman and Outlaws division Don Mehurn took first — followed by Neil Martin in second and John Rice in third — while Ryan St. Clair won the Late Model Sportsman race. Will Collins and Josh St. Clair rounded out the top three, respectively.
Jerry McKenna won the Mini Trucks race, Opie Allard placed second and Jeff Schmidt took third. Zach Emerson rounded out the winners by taking the Strictly Street division, while Corey Morgan and Gerry Freve were second and third, respectively. Ben Erskine, of Farmington, placed ninth.
Local racers Johnny Clark and Cassius Clark put forth a strong effort, but it ultimately was not enough as D.J. Shaw took home first place at Saturday’s Star Speedway 150 in Epping, N.H.
Johnny Clark, of Farmingdale, held the lead for the better part of the first 60 laps despite a series of caution flags slowing the race.
Shortly after a caution on lap 59, Cassius Clark, of Farmington, took the lead away from Johnny Clark and held it until lap 125.
During that lap Cassius Clark had to go high to above a collision, which allowed Shaw to slip in for the lead after a restart. Shaw maintained a two-car lead over Cassius Clark and Johnny Dearborn until lap 138, when the two racers touched and Clark spun out.
Cassius Clark ultimately settled for 13th, while Johnny Clark finished in fifth. Next up in the PASS North series will be the Frameco 150 at the Autodrome Chaudiere in Chaudiere, Quebec.
