Mike Iles won the second round of the “Romp in the Swamp” 811 Dig Safely Open-Comp Modifieds on the Bridgeport Speedway quarter mile. Sam LaMothe and Tyler Reinhardt won their first features of 2015 in the wingless 600cc Micro Sprints and 270cc Micro Sprints and Joe King, Jr. remain undefeated in the ServPro Four Cylinder Enduro division.
Iles grabbed the lead from Ryan Forte and easily won the 25-lap Modified feature event. Forte led the opening three laps of the contest before Iles took command. John Cornell finished third at the checkered flag followed by Richie Pratt, Jr. and Jimmy Horton.
LaMothe took the lead from his outside front row starting position from Rob Vivona on the opening lap. Bill Thomas and Andrew Locuson passed Vivona for second and third when he drove off the lip of the backstretch on lap five. Lee Nardelli passed Mike Fillbrunn for fifth just passed the halfway point. LaMothe led all 20-laps of the feature to record his first win. Vivona recovered from his excursion to finish second followed by Thomas, Nardelli and Andrew Locuson.
Tyler Reinhardt broke his early season drought by winning the 20-lap feature event for the 270cc Micro Sprints. Reinhardt jumped out to the lead from his outside front row starting position but a caution on lap 9 caught the field up to his bumper. On the restart, sophomore driver Sean Huesser took the lead away from Reinhardt. Huesser began to pull away from Reinhardt over the next few laps then Reinhardt got back into rhythm and caught up and passed Huesser for the win. Huesser held onto second with Lee Reinhardt, Dana LaMothe and Rich Keller completing the top five.
Joe King, Jr. won his fourth Four Cylinder Enduro event of the season over Michael Bentley, Chris Sammons, Keith McKinley and Laura John.
