STAFFORD SPRINGS, Conn. – Cory DiMatteo notched his first victory in the SK Modified division during weekly competition Friday evening at Stafford Motor Speedway.

Teddy Hodgdon took the early lead as the green flag waved for the 40-lap SK Modified feature, with Matt Vassar holding off Andrew Molleur for second. Cory DiMatteo made a move to get by Molleur for third on lap three and as the field came to the line contact was made that sent Molleur around and collected the cars of Michael Christopher Jr., Troy Talman, David Arute, Bryan Narducci, Todd Owen, Keith Rocco, and several other cars to bring the caution out with three laps complete.

Hodgdon took the lead back under green with DiMatteo moving in to second.  Marcello Rufrano was up to third with Matt Vassar in fourth and Mikey Flynn fifth. DiMatteo made a move to the inside of Hodgdon on lap-8 and he took the lead at the line. The top-three of DiMatteo, Hodgdon, and Rufrano were beginning to pull away slightly from Flynn in fourth and Rocco in fifth as Vassar had slipped back to sixth in line on lap 12.

Rocco took fourth from Flynn on lap 14 while Owen was slowly working his way through traffic back towards the front of the field after being involved in the multi-car melee on lap three as he was eighth in line. At the halfway point, DiMatteo and Hodgdon had pulled away from Rufrano in third, who had a gap back to Rocco in fourth and Ronnie Williams in fifth.  Flynn was sixth followed by Vassar, Owen, Michael Gervais Jr. and Matt Gallo.

With 10 laps to go, DiMatteo was still in the lead with Hodgdon right behind him in second.  Rocco got around Rufrano to take over third with Williams in fifth. Flynn was sixth followed by Owen, Vassar, Gervais, and Gallo.

Hodgdon was able to get to DiMatteo’s bumper but he couldn’t find a way to get by as DiMatteo scored his first career SK Modified victory. Rocco finished third with Williams and Rufrano rounding out the top-five.

In other action, Adam Gray won his first late model feature of the season, Alexander Pearl scored his first SK Light win, Gary Patnode notched his first limited late model win of the year and Meghan Fuller scored her first win of the season in the street stock feature.
