Brent Dragon of Milton, Vt. scored his second feature win of the week in American Canadian Tour competition. Dragon took home the win in the Twin State 100 at Twin State Speedway in Claremont, N.H. after winning the Showdown at Chaudiere just five days ago. It was Dragon's first win of the 2009 ACT Tour season.
Dragon took over the lead after Phil Scott was involved in a lap 82 accident. Prior to the accident Scott had led every lap after starting on the pole. Dragon came from the fourth starting position to challenge Scott before the wreck. John Donahue challenged Dragon for the final 17 laps but settled for second, followed by point leader Scott Payea in third. Young Joey Doiron came home fourth followed by Brian Hoar to round out the top five. Quebec's Daniel Descoste finished sixth followed by Joey Polewarczyk, Jr., Ben Rowe, Aaron Fellows and Dallas Trombley completed the top ten.
The 100 green flag laps were completed in just under 45 minutes with sixth cautions. Thirty cars started the event with 14 cars finishing on the lead lap. Forty-one cars attempted to qualify.
Dragon has already qualified for the ACT Invitational at New Hampshire Motor Speedway on Saturday, September 19 with both a win on the Serie ACT Castrol at Riverside Speedway and with last week's win in the Showdown at Chaudiere. Twenty-eight drivers have received invites with more to be announced next week.
