Chris Perley of Rowley, MA scores his third career win at the Speedbowl

Waterford, CT (August 13, 2011) – In the 50-lap ISMA Supermodified race, Perley was the benefactor of a lap-21 wreck that collected race, leader Eric Lewis and drew the red flag.  Lewis bolted out to a commanding early lead in the opening green flag run, reaching the back half of the field and immediately putting competitors down a lap.  Perley started at the back of the top-ten but quickly moved up into the top four positions by lap-15, however was nearly a half-track behind Lewis. 

Lewis was lapping the field at a blistering pace when just in front of him, two cars battling for position just outside the top-ten came together on the frontstretch.  The cars bobbled, sending Rich Reid darting into Lewis with both cars crashing hard into the turn one wall.  The chain reaction wreck drew both the caution then red flags.  Both competitors were done for the night, with Reid’s car suffering heavy damage.

Past NASCAR champion Johnny Benson Jr. inherited the race lead with series veteran Mark Sammut holding down second.  Perley lined up third for the lap-21 restart, wasting no time to race outside both Sammut, then Benson to power to the race lead on lap-22.  Perley distanced himself from the pack in a long green flag run that ended on lap-43 for a spin in turn two. 

Perley was not challenged over the final restart, cruising to his third career win at the shoreline oval, but first since 2008.  Mike Lichty claimed second position over the final stages of the race ahead of Sammut, who finished third.  Ben Seitz and Craig Rayvals completed the top-five.
