Tim LaDuc Wins Sportsman Feature Saturday Night At Devil’s Bowl Speedway

Information By: JUSTIN ST. LOUIS / DEVIL’S BOWL SPEEDWAY – WEST HAVEN, VT – It was Tim LaDuc’s night Saturday at the Devil’s Bowl Speedway.

LaDuc sliced through the field from 11th starting position to reach second place by the halfway mark. A pair of quick restarts on lap 16 bunched the field and allowed LaDuc to mix it up with early leader Jimmy Davis, and LaDuc took the lead at lap 17 to sail away over the balance of the race for the 55th win of his Devil’s Bowl Speedway career.

Davis was second for his best result of the season.

Marty Kelly III was in tight battles for position throughout the race before finishing third.

Unofficially, Justin Comes (who finished sixth in the race) is the new championship leader with 856 points over Demetrios Drellos (847), who raced elsewhere on Saturday and forfeited the point lead, and LaDuc (845), with two point-counting events left.
