HERMON — Speedway 95 remembered a fallen friend Saturday night with the running of the Allen Fletcher Memorial Duel 23’s and Josh St. Clair of Liberty won both races to extend his win streak to six straight.
As a way to honor the memory of his brother and raising money for Camp CaPella, Brent Fletcher of Old Town helped put on the memorial races.
Allen Fletcher crashed while racing at Unity Raceway on Sept. 28, 2002. He died three days later.
On Saturday night, in the first Dysart’s Late Model 23-lap shootout, there were two cautions, but when the race resumed for good, Josh St. Clair of Liberty and Ryan Deane of Winterport traded the top spot back and forth until lap 14, when St. Clair pulled away for good. Deane was second and Mike Hopkins of Hermon was third. Phil Richardson of Hermon was fourth and Duane Seekins of Stockton Springs finished fifth.
In the second shootout, only one caution flag came out, in lap 15, and once again St. Clair cruised to victory, pulling the lead away from Hermon’s Dale Swoboda after the caution and keeping it.
Steuben’s Brenton Parritt was second, Swoboda third, Richardson fourth and Dean fifth. The overall points winner for the Duel 23 purse and trophy will be determined in the tech garage before next week’s race.
