Smooth Sailing for Krikorian At The Glen



The MRolfeDesigns Pro Late Model Series ran their one and only road course event of the season as they returned to Watkins Glen for a 40-minute event.

David Krikorian picked up the pole on the night, and led the 24-car field to the green flag. He entered turn one already clear from the rest of the pack, and from there on out it was smooth sailing. He would go on to lead 29 out of 30 laps, with the only lap he didn’t lead coming during green flag pit stops, but things would cycle back through and Krikorian would take the dominating victory, winning by over 9 seconds.

Trey Jarrell ran in the 2nd spot all night long and would finish the race in the same position. Justin Brooks stayed out to lead a single lap during the cycle of pit stops, but would shuffle back down to 3rd after his stop to round out the podium. Kevin J Myers moved into the 4th spot during the early stages and remained there throughout the race, while Casey Kelley was able to pick up 5 spots from his 10th starting spot to round out the top five in 5th.

Just outside the top five, Anthony Celentano ran in the top 10 all race long, and then worked his way back up after his pit stop to move into a 6th place finish. Ty Spearman started just outside the top ten, and was able to work his way by a couple cars in the late laps to move into an 7th place finish, with one of those cars being Cody Kelley who ran in the top five early but a few too many off-tracks would drop him back to 8th. Travis Warling, a multi-time Legends road course winner, used an early pit strategy to work his way back through the field and would finish in the 9th spot. Darrell Hamlin used the opposite strategy and pitted later than anyone, and was able to work his way back up to round out the top ten in 10th.

The points leader, Joe Schaffer Jr., had early troubles in the race with a lap 3 wreck that caused him to finish outside the top 20, but he would hang onto the points lead by just 9 points over 2nd place.
