Swallow and Osborne have been disqualified. Chris Davis is being scored the winner of a wild race.
5:55
Swallow takes the win over Osborne in a wild finish and now Osborne takes out Swallow after the checkered flag. A big impact in turn two as both slam the wall hard. Both drivers got out of their cars and started screaming at each other. Swallow was standing on the hood of his car as he yelled at Osborne.
5:51
Scoring is being reverted back to the last completed lap which places Osborne back ahead of Swallow with two laps to go.
5:50
Osborne throwing blocks on Swallow and then Swallow gives Osborne a huge shot to the rear going into turn one to take the lead, but the caution is back out for the stopped car of Nadeau with two laps to go.
5:49
Swallow is back up there as well. Osborne has gotten by Maniatis with six laps to go and Swallow followed to take second.
5:48
So all of the madness over the last four laps has put Nick Maniatis back in the lead and Osborne is right there with him.
5:46
Anderson goes for a spin off the front of Anthony Nadeu’s front bumper.
5:46
Anderson leads after Osborne was also penalized for jumping the restart.

5:42
5:42
Shawn Swallow has been penalized to the rear of the field for jumping the restart. Billy Osborne is your new leader.
5:38
Swallow and Maniatis get together in turn four. Maniatis cuts down a left-front tire which brings out the caution. That is truly a shame as Swallow and Maniatis were putting on a fantastic battle for the win.

About 10 laps remain in this Four Cylinder mini Roadrunner 25-lap feature. Nick Maniatis and Shawn Swallow are putting on a great battle for the lead as they now go four-wide through lapped traffic.

4:42
The Hobby Stocks/Strictly Stocks have rolled out onto the race track for their 30-lap feature. Mike Williams and Stephen Douphinette will lead the field to the green flag.
4:38
The win is Savary’s fourth win of the season. “There’s no sense trying to race with him when all that could happen is possibly wrecking my car.” Savary was already notified that Barrett had been penalized and was not being scored the leader.

Savary said he is a big fan of Tommy Barrett and he said he wishes that Barrett wasn’t disqualified so that they could have actually raced it out at the end.

“I like his competitiveness. We would have been 1-2 at the end whichever way it went.”

4:35
From John Spence Jr., Valenti Modified Racing Series race director: “The decision was made because he was warned. We addressed it in the driver’s meeting that we weren’t going to tolerate any use of the bumper, or driving through anyone. The 9 (Barrett) used the bumper at least three or four times. He almost spun the no. 51 on the backstretch I guess trying to get a caution.”
4:32
4:31
“I didn’t dump anybody. I don’t really know,” said Barrett when asked if he knows why he was penalized. “We won’t be back.”

Today is the penultimate race for the Valenti Modified Racing Series. They will wrap up their season in six days under the lights at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park (CT).

They are now tied atop the standings.

Race two is underway. One girl went 90-degrees to the left right at the start and drove her big wheel right into the grass before getting put back on the asphalt by a grown-up.

The big wheel race is underway on the frontstretch. It’s pretty close between the top two kids. The kid bringing up the rear has a serious disadvantage. His rear wheels are basically training wheels. They’re maybe a quarter of the size of the rear wheels the other kids have. He’s struggling to find grip.
