HERMON, Maine — Jim Carr Jr. of Clifton drove to victory in the 25-lap Sinclair Towing Service Pick-up Truck series feature Wednesday night at Speedway 95.

In doing so, he made it a clean sweep of the three series races.

Hermon’s Doug Sinclair followed Carr across the finish line after making a hard charge for the lead in the closing laps. Sinclair also took second in the three-race series. Jason Haskell of Levant finished both the feature and the series in third place.

Jeff Overlock Jr. of Hermon and Peter Drake of Corinth wound up fourth and fifth, respectively, in the Wednesday night feature.

Travis Beale of Hampden led all 20 laps of the Little Enduro feature, holding off runner-up Rick Gomm of Dixmont and Sam Betts of Brewer, both of whom chased Beale throughout but were unable to advance their positions. Darren Durrell of Newburgh and Dustin Lancaster of Milo finished fourth and fifth, respectively.

In the Ladies division, Amy Houde of Howland returned from a first-lap crash into the backstretch wall last week to win the 20-lap feature in a new car. Houde started on the pole and was never passed, although Erin Evans of Milo chased her closely for the entire race.

Evans finished second with Rhonda Wilbur of Hermon in third, followed by Alexis Roach of Brewer, who made her first appearance in the division.

Roger Smith Jr. of Clifton led the Big Enduros from the green to the checkers, beating runner-up Shawn MacNevin of Hudson and his brother Alvin MacNevin of Clifton, who was third. Woody Davis of Glenburn finished fourth with Shawn Racilla of Dover-Foxcroft claimed fifth.

Dylan Street of Old Ttown won the Stars of Tomorrow feature after starting on the pole and surviving one restart during the 15-lap event. Alex Runci of Frankfort was his closest challenger, but he settled for second.

Third went to Kyle Moore of Frankfort with last week’s winner, William McCullough of Kenduskeag, in fourth. Dustin Durrell of Newburgh finished fifth.
