Unity, Maine – Fred Brown of Winterport outran all troubles developing behind him in a wild Late Model feature, topping the Friday night racing card at Unity Raceway. Steve Rackliff of Starks and Bradley Bosworth of Clinton each won a pair of feature races, with other victories posted by Glenburn’s Steve Moulton, Unity’s Dustin Hubbard, Veazie’s Kyle Gallant, Skowhegan’s Justin Moore, Molly Feeney of Hope and Henry Boudreau of Winterport.

Friday night at the fights is scheduled for August 21st, but the top-tier Late Model racers took the gloves off even before the green flag flew. Joe Allard and Joey Doyon were done for the night before a lap could be completed, then later in the event point leader Frank Moulton had his car destroyed in an altercation which produced a black flag for David Folsom II. That incident took place just a handful of laps after Folsom and Moulton got together, with Folsom spinning from the lead.

Fred ‘Pee Wee’ Brown took charge of the Late Model main event after Folsom’s demise and drove to victory lane in his first appearance behind the wheel of a stock car this season. Phil Richardson of Carmel, who finally cured mechanical demons that had plagued him in his previous Unity Raceway appearances, dove to an impressive second-place finish, with early leader Picard claiming the final podium position. Ajay Picard of Palmyra finished fourth, with Jerry Robbins, Jr. of Montville rounding out the top five. Moulton won the heat race.

Steve Moulton took the lead from semi-teammate Kris Watson of Hermon and held on to the top spot for the balance of an extremely-competitive Super Street division main event. Vassalboro’s Ed ‘Fubby’ Drake overcame a couple of apparent miscues to take second away from Watson, who did hold on for third-place laurels. Shaun Austin of Norridgewock came from the back of the pack three times to finish fourth, while Orrington’s John Kalel II was fifth under the checkered flag. Austin claimed the heat race victory.

Unity’s Dustin Hubbard, the reigning division champion, took advantage of a front row starting position and romped to victory by a wide margin in the Wildcat feature race. Frankfort’s Bobby Seger drove from the rear of the field to second position early in the race, easily holding on to that spot despite being unable to chase down the hometown teenager. Burnham’s Brent Chase raced hard to claim the third-place trophy. Chris King of Burnham finished fourth, followed by Luke Rickards of Anson. Hubbard scored in hear race action.

The Late Model Pro Four class had a pair of feature races, the first a 30-lap double-pointer held over from a rain-shortened card earlier this season. Steve Rackliff of Starks won both main events.

The first Pro Four feature was a thriller right down to the wire, with Rackliff just edging past Benton wheelman Jimmy Dennis under Bo Overlock’s checkered flag. Rackliff led, just about the final five feet of the 10-mile contest. Bryan Lancaster of Skowhegan filled the show position in the opener, with the top-five filled out by Corey Walker and Ben Nile.

Rackliff’s second score of the evening came after he prevailed in a long and spirited match-up with eventual runner-up Norm Cummings, Jr. of Augusta. Walker finished third to wrap up his 33rd birthday. Lancaster and Clinton’s Tim Robinson completed the top five rundown. Robinson claimed the checkered flag in the heat race.

Justin Moore outran Augusta’s Cody Sleeper to win the Flyin’ 4 feature event. Skowhegan’s Mike Mason drove from the back of the field into the lead in the race, but spun in front of the field in speedy-dri laid down for fluids spread on the racetrack earlier in the event. Moore lost a lap as a result of the spin, but put on a show charging from the back once again to pass all but the first two finishers in the closing laps, finishing eighth. Skowhegan’s Jordan Hawes picked up third-place spoils ahead of Sidney’s Nick Lizotte and Chris Williams of Oakland. Moore and Mason won the heat races.

Molly Feeney of Hope prevailed in Ladies division competition. Feeney held off all challengers following a restart after she inherited the lead from Mika Wilson, who spun off the backstretch trying to hold off the challenges of Feeney and Shelby Kimball. Wilson charged from the back of that restart lineup to finish in second position, with Bucksport’s Kayla Allen’s aggressive drive netting a third-place finish. Samantha Letourneau bounced back from a wild ride into an infield sand trap to finish in fourth position. Carol Wilson, Mika’s mom, was fifth at the line.

Bradley Bosworth swept Teen Thunder feature event action, and won the heat race to complete the trifecta. Like the Late Model Pro Fours, the kiddy class kicked things off with a previously-postponed double-point race, followed by a heat race and their regularly-scheduled main event.

Cole Robinson of Clinton and Gage Landry of Sidney claimed second and third positions in the first race, with fourth and fifth going to Cornville’s Matt Kimball and Brooke Getchell of Pittsfield.

Landry, Getchell, Daymon Dodge of Troy and Robinson filled out the top-five in the regularly-scheduled feature race.

Henry Boudreau led wire-to-wire in the Enduro race closing out the night’s action. It was a career-first trophy dash victory for the happy Winterport driver.
