SCARBOROUGH, ME — Windham’s Corey Bubar took the victory in the Pro Series 125 Saturday night, in a dominating performance. Bubar led most of the extended race and went on to be the first repeat winner in the Pro Series division. 

After capturing the pole spot in qualifying, Bubar led the 25-car field to the green flag. Bubar led until a early race caution bunched the field back together. On the restart, Bubar faced Charlie Colby, of Newcastle. After battling side-by-side for a few laps, Colby was able to edge Bubar going into the first turn to capture the lead. Colby opened up a two car-length advantage over Bubar, but a caution on lap 26 set the two up for battle again. 

Colby chose the outside leaders lane choice giving Bubar the inside groove. Bubar was able to pass Colby coming out of the fourth turn to regain the lead. Veteran Bryan Kruczek, of New Market, NH, started to charge his way to the front. By lap 30, Kruczek had passed Colby and set his sights on Bubar. On lap 39, Kruczek passed Bubar with ease and opened up a five car length advantage. 

A caution on lap 63 was devastating for Kruczek after a turn one incident with lap cars. The incident sent Kruczek to the pits for repair giving Bubar back the lead. Bubar led the field to the restart and opened up a car length lead over Gorham’s Dan McKeage. Bubar was able to keep McKeage at bay by increasing his lead over him and the field. 

Bubar led until a final caution on lap 120 flew. The caution set up a five lap shootout between Bubar and McKeage. On the anticipated restart, Bubar took over the top spot with ease and again opened up a lead on the field. Bubar led the remaining five laps of the feature event and went on to win the Pro Series 125. 

David Vaughn, of Naples, took the victory in the Wildcat 50-lap feature event. A caution on lap 43 set up for a great battle between Vaughn and Union’s Mac Hannan. Vaughn and Hannan battled nose to tail respectively for multiple laps, until Vaughn was able to open up a small lead over Hannan coming out of the fourth turn and went on for his second win of the season.
