Scarborough wins 50-lap race; Devil’s Bowl finale is next

WEST HAVEN — Brandon driver Joey Scarborough on Sunday took his fourth victory of the season at Devil’s Bowl Speedway by winning a 50-lap Central Vermont Motorcycles Sportsman Modified race in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series.   
Veteran racer Ron Proctor held the lead for the first 18 laps before Scarborough took over and drove away from the field.  A caution flag erased his huge lead, and the ensuing restart brought Orwell’s Tim LaDuc to Scarborough’s rear bumper. But Scarborough survived LaDuc’s challenge and then outran East Corinth’s Adam Pierson in the final 10 laps.
Pierson and LaDuc finished second and third, respectively, followed by Whiting’s Jimmy Ryan and Middlebury’s Justin Comes. Point leader Kenny Tremont Jr. of New York finished sixth, and Brandon’s Vince Quenneville Jr. was eighth.
The win pulled Scarborough within 36 points of Tremont for the series lead, 701-665, entering two days or racing at Devil’s Bowl this coming weekend.
 In other races Joey Roberts of Fletcher notched his fifth win of the season in the 20-lap O’Reilly Auto Parts Limited Sportsman division. That race turned out to be a marathon after several wrecks and spins, including a big pileup on the opening lap which knocked out two racers.
Salisbury’s Brent Warren finished fifth, good enough to retain a 15-point series lead over second-place finisher Travis Billington of New York. Roberts is 21 points behind Warren. Adam Piper of Leicester was sixth in the race, and Bristol’s R.J. Germain finished eighth.
Fair Haven’s Chris Murray won for the 10th-time in the Super Stocks division, this time in a 20-lap race. Murray has all but clinched the division. Cornwall’s Garrett Given was fourth, and Orwell’s Ronnie Alger finished eighth.
Milton’s Shawn Moquin of Milton was a first-time winner in the 15-lap race in the Portland Glass Mini Stock division, with Panton’s Mike Preston in second. Cornwall’s Jake Barrows finished fifth, and Vergennes driver Kaleb Shepard continued to pick up points by taking sixth. Shepard has a commanding lead over Moquin in the series, 800-726.
Rutland’s Shawn McPhee prevailed in the 15-lap Friend Construction 500cc Mini Sprints race. Brandon’s Kevin Smith finished third, and Shoreham’s Colby Beinhaur was fifth.
The Vermont 200 Weekend is up this weekend. Saturday’s program begins at 4 p.m., and Sunday’s gets under way at 2 p.m.
