EPPING, N.H. – Joey Polewarczyk Jr. became just the third driver in the history of the American Canadian Tour for late models to score three victories in a row Saturday night at Star Speedway.
Polewarczyk joins Ben Rowe (2006) and Gary Caron (1995) as the only drivers to score three-straight points paying ACT victories.
Polewarczyk and fellow New Hampshire native Wayne Helliwell Jr. put on a show for their hometown fans for the majority of the event. Helliwell took over the lead on lap 53 and just over 10 laps later Polewarczyk arrived at his back bumper from his ninth starting position.
Over the next 70 laps the duo held the top two spots as they battled for the win. Helliwell protected the outside groove and kept the momentum off the corners as Polewarczyk fought for every inch on the inside. Polewarczyk caught the break he needed as the final caution flag flew on lap 135.
Polewarczyk started on the outside of Helliwell and drove it deep into turn one on the restart. Helliwell pulled even out off turn two and the pair barreled down the backstretch. Both drivers got loose through turn four and nearly spun out in front of the field. Polewarczyk regained control and took the lead, a position he would not give up for the remainder of the race.
Eddie MacDonald used the dust up to his advantage as well as he got around Helliwell to claim the runner-up spot.
Todd Davis earned a hard fought fourth place finish after running in the top three for the majority of the day, while Rowland Robinson, Jr. completed the top five. Veteran ACT driver Brent Dragon, Ben Lynch, Ray Parent, Jimmy Hebert and Chip Grenier rounded out the top ten.
