WEST HAVEN — Second-place finishes by Brandon’s Dave Snow and Vergennes’ Steve Miller provided the local highlights in Saturday action at Devil’s Bowl Speedway.

Snow finished second behind Jason Durgan, who claimed his first victory of the season in the Coca-Cola Firecracker 44. Durgan, of Morrisonville, N.Y., waded through an early mess in the 44-lap Modified race that saw three wrecks in the first two laps. After trailing Snow for several laps, Durgan threw his car to the outside lane at the one-quarter mark, powered into the lead, and eventually won by a half-track advantage.

Snow took second, the best finish of his career, by holding off Jackie Brown Jr. for much of the race. Brown took third.

Seth Bridge of Mendon inherited his first-ever victory following technical inspection for the Central Vermont Motorcycles Late Model division. Bridge ran a competitive 44-lap race to take third. Josh Masterson of Bristol and Robert Bryant Jr. ran 1-2 originally, but their cars were found to be below the minimum ride height requirement; they were each penalized five positions for the minor infraction. Bridge was named the winner ahead of Miller, who earned second place.

West Rutland’s Scott FitzGerald won an entertaining 20-lap battle in the Rosen & Berger Auto Recyclers Renegades event with Matt Monaghan. The pair traded the lead multiple times per lap. 

Portland Glass Mini Stock rookie Eric Messier of Hinesburg also picked up a win in the inspection line. Apparent first-place finisher Harold LaVair was found to have an unapproved wheel offset and was penalized 10 positions.  

Zach Wood won a bizarre 50-lap Enduro Series race to close the evening. As holiday fireworks exploded in the air prior to the start of the Enduro event, an unexpected heavy rainstorm struck. Because the Enduro Series thrives on all types of conditions, the race was run with cars slipping and sliding around. Wood went off the track in the early going and lost a lap, but recovered to un-lap himself and eventually take the lead and the win. 

Saturday’s winners and local finishers were:

• Bond Auto Parts Sportsman Modified Feature (44 laps): 1. Durgan; 2. Snow; 8. Chuck Bradford, Addison; 9. Vince Quenneville Jr., Brandon; 11. Jimmy Ryan, Whiting.

• Central Vermont Motorcycles Late Model Feature (44 laps): 1. Bridge; 2. Miller; 6. Masterson.

• Rosen & Berger Auto Recyclers Renegade Feature (20 laps): 1. FitzGerald; 5. Ray Germain Jr.

• Portland Glass Mini Stock Feature (20 laps): 1. Messier; 3. Brad Bertrand.

• Enduro Series Feature (50 laps): 1. Wood.
