Stone wins, closes in on another track title at Bowl

WEST HAVEN — Middlebury driver Todd Stone was among the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series winners on Sunday at Devil’s Bowl Speedway in action postponed from Friday, and he is closing in on his second straight track championship.
Stone’s win in the second of two Bond Auto Parts Modified races extended his Modified Series lead over New York driver Joey Roberts to 35 points (846-811) with two events to go, twin 50-lap features on Sept. 13 and 14. Leon Gonyo of New York is third, five more points back at 806.
Stone dominated the second Modified race of the evening in a backup car after wrecking in the first race. Jessey Mueller snuck into second spot on a lap-17 restart. Roberts was third, and Brandon’s Vince Quenneville was fourth.
Jason Durgan of Morrisonville, N.Y., won the opening 25-lap Modified main event. Quenneville finished second, and Roberts made a three-wide move in the final corner to take third place.
 In the two Late Model Division races, East Montpelier teenager Emily Packard fell inches shy of a sweep. Packard won the opening 25-lapper in convincing fashion with Rich Lowrey Jr. and Bristol’s Josh Masterson taking second and third, respectively. Point leader Jamie Fisher took fourth.
In the second race, Packard and Fisher battled for the win. Packard led laps 21 to 24 in a door-slamming duel, but Shelburne veteran Fisher held the bottom lane and earned a margin of victory estimated at less than three inches.
Fisher’s performance was enough to extend his championship lead, though his advantage remains just 13 points over Masterson (660-647) and 15 on Packard (645) entering the 100-lap season finale.
Richard Lowrey III of Charlotte — whose father Rich finished second in the opening Late Model feature — won the first of two 15-lap Renegade races in a squeaker over point leader Robert Gordon, with rookie Scott FitzGerald third. Milton’s Gordon took in the second event after Lowrey was eliminated in an early crash.
John McCarron of New York took his second Central Vermont Motorcycles Mini Stock win of the season after passing Harold LaVair with one lap remaining in the first 15-lap feature. New York’s Bobby LaVair took the victory in the second feature.
