Lutz wins SK Modified race at the Speedbowl

Craig Lutz of Miller Place, N.Y., stole the spotlight at the Waterford Speedbowl Saturday, winning the SK Modified race for his first win.

Ken Cassidy Jr. of Lisbon was back in the winners' circle during an extra-distance Mini Stock feature and Jason Palmer recorded his first Late Model win of the season. Robin Berghman of East Providence picked up the victory in the visiting New England Pro Four Modified race and hometown driver Jordan Hadley won the X-Car feature.

Lutz needed a gritty performance over much of the 35-lap feature to record an exciting first career victory that put fans on their feet for the finish. He spent the opening half of the race trying to find a way around Diego Monahan of Quaker Hill. Lutz fell to third place when Plainville's Ted Christopher inched ahead of him, however slight contact between Monahan and Christopher on lap-16 sent Monahan spinning out of turn two, drawing the yellow flag. Christopher was placed to the rear of the field during the caution period, handing the lead to Lutz.
