CARIBOU — Shawn Martin of Turner took the lead after the halfway mark and held on to win the second annual Spud 150 held Sunday at Spud Speedway.
Finishing second was Ellsworth’s Andy Saunders, who despite several mishaps during the caution-laden event was able to survive each incident and provide a late-race challenge to the leader, but his hard-charging ways ultimately wore down his tires to the point where he was unable to pass Martin.
Finishing third was J.R. “Rockin’” Robinson of Steuben, while fourth place went to Deane Smart of Bradley.
The winner of the Maine Alliance Championship was 21-year-old Josh St. Clair of Liberty, who despite a flat tire finished fifth.
The Hard Charger award was won by Puncin St. Clair, also of Liberty.
At Unity, Fairfield’s Jeff Burgess earned his fourth Late Model feature victory while Frank Moulton of Burnham finished 10th to claim his third-straight track championship. Ed Drake of Vassalboro finished second to Burgess followed by Poncho Darveau of Chelsea, Markus Lowe of Jackson and Steve Rackliff of Starks.
