Roger Turbush is looking to make the Mr. Rooter New England Truck Series his personal playground in 2015 after another dominating performance.   Turbush was never out of the top 3 for the entire event, and was only  hallenged by Modified Champion Ted Christopher en route to his second victory in as many races in 2015.  Turbush would check out on the field after a lap 7 three wide battle allowed Turbush to grab the lead and open the door for Frank Dumichich Jr. to get by Christopher.  A late caution leading to a green-white-checker would bunch the field, but Turbish had a good restart and left Dumicich and Christopher to battle for second.  Contact going into the last turn would bump Christopher out of of a podium finish, and allow Bert Ouellette and Andy Lindeman to drive past.  Christopher would finish fifth.

Despite Turbush's win, the talk around the paddock was centered around Modified superstar Ted Christopher, making his first career start and challenging the truck regulars.  After the race, a clearly frustrated Christopher expressed his displeasure about the finish by making contact with another truck on the cool down lap, resulting in a 20 point penalty and $100 fine by the series.

"I had to work hard for this win, it wasn't easy beating Ted Christopher," said Turbush.  "If I made a mistake the results could of been different. Awesome feeling winning at not only Thompson but Stafford as well and beating a driver like TC is something I will not forget."

Dumicich agreed, "It was good hard racing on the last lap for the checker flag with TC and that it was a tight fast group of trucks at the front of the pack all day."

Third place finisher Bert Ouellette excitedly exclaimed "I thought it was exciting to get to race Teddy at Stafford, a track that he has dominated, and run with him and battle around him!!!"

 

The Mr. Rooter New England Truck Series returns to action at the Waterford New London Speedbowl this Saturday night.  For More Information, visit www.mrrootertruckseries.com or www.facebook.com/newenglandtruckseries.
