Rain Cuts Waterford Speedbowl Run Short


WATERFORD, Conn. -– Waterford Speedbowl was in action on Saturday of Labor Day weekend with its annual Thunder on the Sound event, presented by The Connecticut National Guard.

Mother Nature interfered more than once, as rain soaked the racing surface on two separate occasions. Nine events were scheduled for the program in total with five feature races completed before rain began falling for the final time during the 16th annual Budweiser Modified Nationals SK Modified 150.

The remainder of the night’s races, including the SK-150, were postponed to later dates.

Cam McDermott took home the checkered flag in a rain-shortened NASCAR Whelen All-American Series SK Light Modified feature and in INEX racing action, Joe Mucciacciaro landed his first career Speedbowl win in the Legend Cars and Ken Morin Jr. was declared the winner of the Bandolero feature.

Todd Bertrand bagged a special tribute Northeastern Midget Association race. Keith Rocco scored a career first win in the NEMA Lite series after making his first-ever start in the division.
