Ashton Tucker goes from worst to best in the Castle Building Centres 150! – Short Track Scene


Ashton Tucker (#2) took to victory lane on Saturday night at Speedway 660 to celebrate his third consecutive Easy-Kleen Super Late Model Series victory – but this win was perhaps even more special than the previous two.

Due to a penalty they received at the Fog City Auto Spa 150 on May 11, Tucker, Cory Hall (#83) and Ryan Messer (#1) all had to start at the back of the field at the Castle Building Centres 150 presented by Taiga Building Products. After showing an exemplary test of patience, Tucker completed his march to the front of the field when he took the lead for the first time on lap 107 and led the final 44 laps en route to the win. It didn't take long for Hall and Messer to follow Tucker onto the podium, as the trio that started at the back finished 1-2-3 at the checkered flag.

Lonnie Sommerville (#23) had an outstanding day, overcoming a difficult season opener to finish fourth, while Greg Fahey (#20) took home the final top-five finish on what was a monumental day for him.

After winning the heat, Fahey started the main race from the outside pole position but took the lead on the first lap. Fahey maintained that lead and was able to fend off attacks from drivers such as Sommerville and Dave O'Blenis (#48) for much of the first two-thirds of the race. When the pay window opened, the youngsters displaced the veterans and took the podium spots.

It was a fast and clean race, slowed only by four cautions. With a time of 59 minutes and 12 seconds, it was the shortest race to date in the Easy-Kleen Super Late Model Series.

Sommerville, Fahey and O'Blenis all won heats to start the day, but it was Ironman Kent Vincent (#8) who won the EIT Race Radios Pole Award with a +3 score, while Fahey took second place to win the Two Speed ​​Motorsports award. Vincent put in a fantastic run – and actually set the fastest lap of the race – but retired after an incident on lap 95.

Defending champion Dylan Gosbee (#16) was issued the first caution period of the race when a tire came off his car on the backstretch, causing him to land on the beach in turn three and ending the race. After finishing in the top ten in every race during his championship season a year ago, Gosbee has had a difficult start to 2024 so far.

The only driver making his Easy-Kleen Super Late Model Series debut was Maine's Travis Benjamin (#7), who returned to Speedway 660 with much hype for the first time in a decade. Despite quick performances in practice, the three-time Oxford 250 champion struggled a little with handling but still managed a seventh-place finish, just behind Hudson Weston (#43).

Robbie MacEwen (#40) led the PEI group with an eighth place finish – the best of any Prince Edward Island rider. It was a day where the results did not reflect the performance as all PEI riders had strong runs but ultimately fell behind in the closing stages.

The win was Ashton Tucker's third Easy-Kleen SLMS victory and third in a row. With back-to-back wins, Tucker will once again defend the points lead from Cory Hall (#83). Full points will be updated shortly.

The next Easy-Kleen Super Late Model Series race will be on Saturday, June 15, 2024 at Oyster Bed Speedway for the Universal Truck and Trailer 150. Round three starts at 6:00 p.m. on the Oyster Bed Bridge.
