Roger Turbush found himself standing in victory lane yet again this season, taking the checkers at the New London – Waterford Seedbowl. Turbush has swept the Mr. Rooter New England Truck Series season to this point, winning race events at Thompson and Stafford to start the year.
Turbush started last on the field after being black flagged in his heat race for leaking fluid onto the track.  Frank Dumicich Jr, Ed Puleo, and Andy Lindeman took turns leading as Turbush worked his way into the top 5 by lap 7.  While fighting for the lead near the halfway mark, Dumicich Jr. and Puleo made contact, sending Puleo hard into the backstretch wall and Lindeman through the grass.  Puleo and Lindeman were too damaged to continue and Dumicich Jr. needed to pit, handing the lead to Turbush.
On the restart Turbush was challenged at the front by Corey Coates, until an electrical problem ended Coates’ day.  Dumicich Jr. worked his way back to second but was unable to catch Turbush.  Cassandra Coates and Bert Ouellette battled for third, with Cassandra Coates getting into Ouellette and turning him around coming to the checkered flag.  Officials credited Ouellette with third, and Cassandra Coates fourth. Rookie Josh Stringer rounded out the top 5 with a career best finish.
The next race for the Mr. Rooter New England Truck Series is at Monadnock Speedway on  May 30th.  For more information on the Mr. Rooter New England Truck Series, visit or Results:
