Dragon Claims Checkers On WDEV/Calkins Portable Toilet Night
Patience was a virtue for Scott Dragon on WDEV/Calkins Portable Toilet Night. The Milton driver, who started 17th in the 22-car field, took over the lead with 12 laps to go and pulled away for the win in the 85-lap Thunder Road Late Model feature.
The early part of the event belonged to Eric Badore of Milton, who took over the lead from Darrell Morin of Westford on a 20th-lap restart. Badore opened up 10-car length lead as Morin and Cody Blake of Barre waged a side-by-side battle for second place for over 40 laps. Dragon finally moved into the top three on the 63rd lap, quickly overtook Phil Scott of Middlesex for second, then claimed the lead from Badore on lap 74.
