Helliwell Jr. wins Spring Green 113

Posted: Updated:
WEST HAVEN, V.t. -

We're 3 for 3 with the opening of local ractracks, thunder road, airbrone and today devils bowl with another beautiful day.

A packed crowd heading down to West Haven for the spring green 113, week three of the ACT season and many of this year's top drivers in mid-season form.

Including last year's rookie of the year, Williamstown's Jimmy Hebert. The 58 car hanging with the pack for the entire day. He ends up with a strong third place finish.

That's because the two cars in front of him were in a 1-on-1 battle all afternoon. Williston's Brian Hoar and ACT Champion Wayne Helliwell Jr. in a furious showdown.

Multiple re-start flags give Hoar the lead with just five laps to go but a late spin out by Plattsburgh's Bucko Branham sets up this epic finish.

Helliwell Jr. and Hoar neck and neck to the checkered flag. But it's the 27 car of Helliwell Jr. that takes it by Point-Zero-Two-Seven seconds for his second straight Spring Green win. Hoar setlles for a tough second.
