WEST HAVEN — Panton’s Mike Preston was among the dirt-track winners on Sunday at Devil’s Bowl Speedway, picking up his second victory of the season in the Portland Glass Mini Stock division.

In Sunday’s 20-lap race Preston and Vergennes racer Kaleb Shepard traded the lead before Preston pulled out the first-place result. Shepard tied his career-best by taking second place.  Leicester’s Derrick Counter finished fifth, and Cornwall’s Jake Barrows was sixth.

White River Junction’s Josh Sunn prevailed in the 30-lap main event, the annual Central Vermont Motorcycles Sportsman Modified race, in which cars’ roofs are removed. Sunn started in the 16th position, but overtook early leader Vince Quenneville Jr. of Brandon to take command.

Shoreham’s Jimmy Ryan worked his way into second, Quenneville was third, Middlebury’s Justin Comes finished seventh, Orwell’s Tim LaDuc took ninth, and Brandon’s Jake Scarborough was 10th.

Joey Roberts of Fletcher won the 25-lap O’Reilly Auto Parts Limited Sportsman feature, dominating the field for his first victory on dirt. Roberts, whose last win was in the 2016 topless event on the former Devil’s Bowl asphalt track, led the final 15 laps of the race and won by nearly half a lap. Salisbury’s Brent Warren and Leicester’s Adam Piper finished third and fourth, respectively.

Chris Murray of Fair Haven won for the third time this season in the Super Stock division. Orwell’s Ronnie Alger was ninth in that event.

Austin Chaves took the checkered flag in the Friend Construction 500cc Mini Sprint division. Kevin Smith of Brandon was 10th in that race.

Devil’s Bowl’s next event is “Throwback Night” at 6 p.m. this Sunday, when restored old-time racecars come from the Mohawk Valley Vintage Dirt Modified Series and the new Champlain Valley Vintage Modified Series join the regular action.
