DECAIRE WINS ANDERSON MUST SEE FINALE IN DOMINTING FASHION
May 15, 2021 – Williamston, South Carolina Troy DeCaire picked up his first Must See Racing Sprint Series presented by Engine Pro victory in several seasons in dominating fashion Saturday night. DeCaire picked up a win in the two-day finale at Anderson Motor Speedway near Anderson, South Carolina.
Saturday’s finale fared far better than the opener Friday night. Friday’s event involved several multi-car incidents including a lap one pile-up that sent two cars flipping. In addition, two separate battles for the lead resulted in damaged cars and egos. It was chaotic to say the least. Saturday’s finale didn’t resemble the previous night’s carnage filled program in the least.
DeCaire started in the sixth position in the 30-lap feature that saw only 11 cars take the green due to availability of cars from the previous night’s event. In typical DeCaire fashion, he jumped to the outside on the green flag and made it three-wide going into turn one. By the time DeCaire exited turn two he was already in second position behind race leader and Friday night winner Joe Liguori. Four laps later DeCaire took command of the event and never looked back in dominating fashion.
DeCaire finished 6.598 seconds ahead of Liguori and built nearly a half lap advantage over third place finisher Jimmy McCune. Rounding out the top five were Anthony McCune and Jacob Dolinar.
Nolan Allison was the night’s fast qualifier with a lap of 13.571 seconds.
“We haven’t run a lot of 410 races in a while” DeCaire explained in victory lane.”I had a couple of them taken from us lately I feel like. Finally, it feels good to close the deal here”.
DeCaire’s early charge to the front may have been the difference. “This place is really hard to pass on. I feel like passing is at a premium here, especially when you can air it out. It sticks really good in the first turn at a lot of places. I really worked on that all day. I didn’t necessarily know I was gonna start on the outside. On the start I got over the top of the right front of the #48 and he gave me the lane. It got a little close with the #7. But to eliminate four cars in the first corner, they say you can’t win it on the first lap, but you can save a little tire” concluded DeCaire.
The series will be back in action May 28-29 at Kalamazoo Speedway for the inaugural American Speed U.S. Nationals and a $5,000 payday.
