In a special 75 Lap Little Enduro feature scheduled on a Saturday night, and sponsored by Cap’s Tavern of Brewer and Judy’s Restaurant on State St. in Bangor, Darren Durrell of Newburgh came back from a Wednesday night disqualification that took a win away from him to take the win in a race that went the full 75 laps, from green to checkers, without a stop. Durrell wrestled the lead from Donny Blanchard of Orrington on the 11th lap and held Blanchard at bay for the remainder of the race. Blanchard finished in second with Kyle Gallant of Veazie, who had posted a win in the Sport-Four Division earlier in the evening, finishing in third. Newburgh’s Ken Getchell finished the race in fourth, the first car a lap down to the leaders, and Frankfort’s Chris Burbelo was fifth. Durrell and Blanchard each won a qualifying heat, and started the race on the front row. The Little Enduro feature replaced the usual Late Model Feature as the Late Model drivers requested the night off to attend Oxford 250 week-end at Oxford Plains Speedway.

Strictly Street action saw a new winner in victory lane as Orrington’s Nick Huff, in his first ever appearance at Speedway 95 as a driver, came from a 6th place starting position and passed from veteran driver Doug Day of Kenduskeag on lap 9 to take the lead, and later, his first checkered flag. Points leader Bradley Norris of Ellsworth, who got tangled up in a chain reaction collision at the start when Travis Poulin’s Monte Carlo failed to gain speed when the green flag flew, chased Huff for the second half of the race, but was unable to catch the youngster and settled for a runner up finish. Doug Day finished in third, followed by Jim Carr Jr. of Clifton in his first Strictly Street appearance of the year in fourth and Shawn Hamel of Bangor in fifth. Huff is the son for former Speedway 95 and Unity Raceway Pro Stock driver Kris Huff, and grandson of Hermon’s Doug Sinclair, a Super Street driver at the speedway. Bradley Norris was the qualifying race winner.
The Super Street race was a fender rubbing and bumper banging affair which led to another first time winner in the division. Ed Drake of Vasselboro took advantage of a restart on lap 21 to pass points leader Kris Watson of Hermon and lead the final four laps to the win. Watson and Hermon’s Doug Sinclair had been locked in a fierce battle for the top spot until Sinclair went into turn three a little too high and a little too hard, and ended up against the turn three tire wall. Sinclair had been leading and was attempting to overlap a slower car when his misfortune struck. On the restart it was Watson on the outside by choice, and Drake on the inside, with Drake powering by Watson to take the lead when the green flag flew. Watson finished second with Holden’s Steve Moulton recovering from an early race skirmish with Franklin’s Mike Overlock to finish third. Artie Mcguire of Bucksport finished fourth in his first appearance of the season, and Danforth’s Nick Kinney finished in fifth.
Kyle Gallant of Veazie returned to victory lane in the Sport-Four division following a couple of poor finishes due to mechanical issues with his car, and did it in fine fashion, racing points leader David Green side by side over the last 6 laps of the race. The lap 14 caution, which set up the race to the finish, was caused when Hermon’s Ralph Allen and LaGrange driver Rick Grant came together in turn four, causing Grant to spin and stall. Prior to the restart, Grant decided to show his displeasure with Allen and ran into him on the pace lap. Grant was black flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct, and Allen continued in the race to finish fourth, behind Green, who finished second, and third place finisher Brent Fletcher of Milford. The fifth spot went to Ellsworth’s Bradley Norris, who did double duty, racing in two divisions during the evening’s activity.
Saturday night racing continues at Speedway 95 on July 25, when Budweiser, King of Beers sponsors the show that includes a 50 lap Dysart’s Late Model feature, the Super Streets, Strictly Streets, Allenfarm Fence Co Sport-Fours and the Wicked Good Vintage Racing League.
