seekonkDave Darling, Bobby Pelland III, Rick Martin and Ed Gannon pick up Saturday ARC wins.

Track Champ and points leader Dave Darling won once again, following the simple rule of staying out of trouble.

Darling took over the lead from Kenny Spencer at midrace, on a lap 19 restart. They had dueled on a lap 18 restart and again following cautions on laps 20, 22, 24, 29 and 30. Darling was able to hold on to the lead each time. The final ten laps ran caution free and Darling led Spencer over the stripe. Dick Houlihan, Fred Astle and Kevin Casper followed.

Signs for the race were bad from the first billowing of the green, as Kevin Folan and Mike Brightman were together and up into the wall before the starting line. They had started side-by-side and something had knocked Folan loose and into Brightman and they locked together in a slide into the wall at the base of the starter’s platform. Brightman pulled away and drove smoking to the pits. Folan, with his right front corner collapsed, had to be hauled to the pits before completing a lap. Brightman was able to return, but Bill Antonellis, who had been collected in the fray, was also out without finishing a circuit.
