Badore Claims Triple Crown on Casella Night
Eric Badore of Milton held off a pair of challengers early, then pulled away late to claim his second care Late Model victory on Casella Waste Systems Night at Thunder Road. Badore also won his heat race and the semi-feature to earn the second Maplewood Triple Crown of his Late Model career.
Badore and pole-sitter Jason Allen of Barre waged a side-by-side battle at the front of the pack for the first 10 laps of the race. Eric Chase of Milton took over second after Allen spun out on lap 32 to bring out the second caution of the evening on lap 32. Chase led by a nose on the outside on the restart following the caution flag, but Badore regained the top spot and stayed in front for the rest of the way.
