Action commenced Friday night at Legion Speedway with the makeup event, completing the opening event from May 6th that was cut short due to rain. Will Hull took the lead early in the event and withstood a late race charge by Kevin Chaffee to take his second win of the year. Chaffee finished second with Luke Greenwood third, Dan Douville fourth and Lacey Hanson fifth.

In the regularly scheduled Feature Tyler Austin would fly to the lead before the halfway point, survive a couple of cautions and go on to take the first win of his career. Rookie Matt Hoyt finished a career best second with Kevin Chaffee crossing the line in third. Will Hull and Chris Donnelly would complete the top five. For the second week in a row rookie Chris Clark would take a wild ride, this time after contact with Luke Greenwood, flipping down the front stretch and hitting the turn one wall. While Clark was OK, his car was not. Tyler Austin and Chris Donnelly copped heat race wins with Dan Douville coming out on top in the Dash.

Sunday at Devils Bowl Speedway Patrick Smith led early was involved in an incident that left him stopped in turn three. Shortly after the restart Dan Douville blasted into the lead and looked to be on his way to his first win of the season but Chris Donnelly had other ideas. The duo started to encounter heavy lapped traffic and Donnelly took advantage of that, making a bonsai, three wide move inside the lapped car to annex the top spot. Douville fought back but after a few laps Donnelly pulled away and ran to the win. For Donnelly it was his third win of the season, one at each of the three tracks SCoNE competes at. Douville claimed second with Bobby Hackel finishing third after a spirited battle with Jake Williams. Hackel started last on the field as it was his first appearance with the Sprint Cars of New England and he was running a 305ci engine instead of the normal 360. Jake Williams was fourth with Kevin Chaffee completing the top five. Dan Douville and Kevin Chaffee won the heats with Jake Williams victorious in the Dash.

Next up for the Sprint Cars of New England will be the Triple Crown weekend, July First at the Legion Speedway, July second at the Bear Ridge Speedway and July Third at the Devils Bowl Speedway.
