LEE, N.H. -- It had been a few years since Bryan Kruczek had run a weekly division race at the Lee USA Speedway, but Friday Night, Kruczek and his Bobby Webber Racing team made a statement return, winning both Late Model Sportsman feature races in commanding fashion.
The team had a successful practice on opening night, with the car topping the speed charts, only to have a rain storm come in and cut the night short before a feature event could be run. So, after a week of anticipation, the Vynorious Companies, Hawthorne, Hedges Excavating machine picked up where they left off.
Kruczek started the first feature of the night towards the front of the pack, and quickly worked his way to the lead after a restart on the outside of the front row. Kruczek was able to work his way by early race leader Frankie Eldredge, and he was then able to distance himself from the rest of the pack. The Bobby Webber Racing machine finished the 25 lap race a solid 5 seconds over his nearest competitor, Frankie Eldredge crossed the stripe in second, Bobby Melvin Jr. rounded out the top three.
When feature number two of the evening hit the track, Kruczek's No. 19NH would roll off seventh in the 12-car field. In the opening laps, Cam Huntress had taken the lead while Kruczek navigated the BWR machine through traffic and up to the third spot.
On the fifth circuit, Charlie Colby worked his way by Huntress and into the lead, by this point Kruczek had worked his way up to the front duo, and two laps later, took the top spot. Again, the Hedges Excavation, Advanced Gas Distributors machine began to distance itself from the competition until the race was slowed by a caution bunching the field back together. On the restart, Kruczek rocketed his way back out to the lead with Frankie Eldredge following through into second, and Charlie Colby followed in third, which would be the way the trio would finish out the event. Kruczek crossed the line 1.6 seconds ahead of Eldredge completing the evening sweep.
Bobby Webber Racing team owner Bobby Webber also challenged Lee USA Speedway track owner Norm Wrenn to match him dollar-for-dollar for the winnings and donate the winnings to Hole in The Wall Gang, a favorite charity of the late Norm Wrenn III. Track owner Norm Wrenn matched and thousands of dollars were donated to the charity.
Bryan Kruczek and Bobby Webber Racing will return to Lee USA Speedway on Friday, June 11, for another round of the Rodfather Late Model Sportsman. Racing begins at 7 p.m. and admission is just $5 for fans in a special Fans Night at the races. The team will also compete in the Granite State Pro Stock Series event at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway on Saturday, June 12. A full weekend preview will come later in the week right here on BobbyWebberRacingllc.com.
