Comes, Preston win at Devil’s Bowl
WEST HAVEN — Addison County drivers Justin Comes and Mike Preston were among the winners at Devil’s Bowl Speedway on Sunday.
Middlebury’s Comes put on a show in the 30-lap feature race in the Central Vermont Motorcycles Sportsman Modified division. He started 10th, took the lead at lap 18 and briefly sailed away from the pack. But championship point leader Kenny Tremont Jr. chased Comes down and caught him in the final two laps. Tremont pulled even with Comes during the final lap, but Comes held him off in a furious drive to the finish line.
Brandon brothers Jake and Joey Scarborough finished sixth and seventh, respectively.
Panton’s Preston ran to his fourth win of the year in a 15-lap race for the Portland Glass Mini Stocks. Clarendon’s Tim Simonds reeled Preston in over the final laps but settled for a career-best second place. Point leader Kaleb Shepard of Vergennes took third, with Ferrisburgh’s Brad Bertrand in fourth. Cornwall’s Jake Barrows was eighth.
East Corinth’s Adam Pierson won the 25-lap Sprint Cars of New England feature. Lacey Hanson of Orwell was sixth in that race.
Eighteen-year-old Paolo Pascarella of Troy, N.Y., earned his first win in three months in the O’Reilly Auto Parts Limited Sportsman division, dominating a 20-lap race. Point leader Brent Warren of Salisbury was third. Leicester’s Adam Piper finished seventh, and Orwell’s James Hanson took 10th.
Fair Haven’s Chris Murray cruised to his ninth win of the season in the 20-lap Super Stock feature, winning by more than half a lap in a race without local contenders.
Thirteen-year-old John McPhee Jr. became the latest rookie to break through in the Friend Construction 500cc Mini Sprint division. The Rutland racer led every lap in the 15-lap event and outlasted second-place finisher Colby Beinhaur of Shoreham. Brandon’s Kevin Smith was eighth.
Devil’s Bowl Speedway is back in action on Sunday at 6 p.m.
