Chagnot Captures Win at Sugar Hill
Weare, NH – Matt Chagnot has had probably the worst luck of his racing career in 2009, but finally shook the monkey off his back this past Sunday when he won in the Box Stock Heavy Oval division. Chagnot turned in a near perfect performance on the way to the win, only swapping the lead with Dylan Payea on a handful of laps. Payea and Eric Williams rounded out the top three.

In the Eurasian Autoworks LTD. Jr. Champ Heavy division, the trio of Brittney Burrant, Ian Beliveau, and Stephen Morsillo mixed it up lap after lap. The race was one of the closest battles of the season in the division. Burrant came out on top followed by Morsillo and Beliveau. Less than a second and a half separated them at the checkers.

In the last few weeks there have been two drivers who have really found their rhythm in the Jr. Outlaw division. TJ Jeski grabbed his second win in as many weeks on Sunday and was followed across the line by Cassandra Burrant in second. Burrant grabbed her first win just a few weeks ago. Mike Murphy was a very close third.

Douglas Lazelle returned to victory lane in the Jr. Outlaw 'B' division. The biggest story of the race may have been Adam Manley turning in his best finish of the year in second. He just edged out the spot ahead of Parker Mullins Jr. and Stephen Makela.

Watching the Jr. Sportsman Champ division presented by Amigos Mexican Cantina is like a contest to see how long you can hold your breathe. The division runs wide open on the edge, just inches apart, week after week. The finishes are always two-to-three wide, and often times can only be determined by electronic scoring. This past Sunday was no different when Jonathan Lemay won the feature concluding the battle on the track with Austin Brehio and Jack Lithgow finishing second and third, respectively.

The Kenyon Brothers battled to the wire in the Sr. Outlaw division with Chris winning and John finishing second.

Ashley Boutwell won the Tiger Sprint 'C' feature. Sean Murphy returned and put his SH Modified in Victory Lane.

Dylan Boutwell was able to edge out the competition in the Tiger Sprint 'B' division as the raging battle behind him was wheel-to-wheel between Jack Rogers and Michael Keddy. Rogers finished second at the wire, Keddy third, and rounding out the top five was Dylan Rock and Jeremy Decourcy.

Brad Zahensky has become a master of patience and the final lap pass. Ducking under Josh Annis off turn two, Zahensky was able to hold of Annis at the checkers. Parker Mullins Jr. was a close third.
