Flemke led 124 of the 150 race laps en route to collecting $8,200 in cash and prizes. The final 40 circuits were not without a challenge however, as Flemke was hounded by both Dave Berghman and Tommy Cravenhoe in the closing stages of the race. Berghman was able to catch Flemke and even pull alongside him twice, but wasn't able to make the pass on the Southington, CT driver.

Carl Pasteryak and Ted Christopher comprised the front row for the 150-lap race which had 30 combatants. Christopher jumped out to the early race lead from his outside pole position. Christopher led until lap 27, when Flemke, who had started third, made the pass for the race lead. Flemke led the next 124 laps before the checkered flag fell on Flemke and his winning Pontiac. The win was worth $8,200. 

Dave Berghman took runner-up honors and collected $4,205 in cash and prizes after starting 13th. Tommy Cravenhoe finished in third after starting 11th. Cravenhoe pocketed $3,170 for the final podium spot.

Rounding out the top five was Joey Caraccia in fourth and Robbie Summers in fifth. Summers started 17th before charging to a fifth place finish.

Unofficially, Jerry Marquis and defending series champion Mike Stefanik are tied atop the NASCAR Featherlite Modified Series standings with 880 points. Dave Berghman (874), Robbie Summers (860) and Rick Fuller (819) round out the top five.

The series will next compete at Richmond International Raceway in Richmond, VA on June28th.
