LAFARGEVILLE — Tim Sears Jr. held off Watertown’s Billy Dunn to break through for his first victory of the season in the 25-lap 358-modified Friday night at Can-Am Speedway.
Sears and Dunn battled it out for the second half of the race after early leader Michael Maresca of Hannawa Falls encountered car trouble. Lapped traffic forced Sears to the bottom of the track, but Dunn was unable to catch him. Larry Wight was third while Watertown’s Jordan McCreadie and Tyler Meeks rounded out the top five.
Nick Heywood and Kevin Root captured the twin 20-lap DIRTcar Sportsman division races, and Mike White got the victory in the 20-lap pro stock feature.
Josh Verne won the 15-lap thunder stock race, and Maresca claimed the victory in the 15-lap mod lite division event. Tyler Stevenson placed first to take the 15-lap limited sportsman feature.
