Debenedetti Survives the 55
Alger, WA -Jon Debenedetti survived 55 laps of racing at Skagit Speedway and walked away with $10,000 to show for his efforts on Saturday night.
Skagit Aggregates sponsored two nights of modified action at Skagit Speedway and Debenedetti, the veteran Oregon driver, proved up to the task as the checkered flag fell. Debenedetti took the lead over on lap 30 of 55, and would lead the rest of the way to score the victory, holding off a strong late race challenge from runner up Jesse Williamson and eventual fourth place finisher Bricen James. James was running second and made a dive bomb at Debenedetti in turn two with two lap sleft that came up short, costing him second and the final spot on the podium, which went to Eston Whisler.
The highest paying race of the year for Sportsman Sprints ran as the companion show to the Survive the 55 modified race. Veteran Jason Solwold closed out his season with a victory, driving the Shaylen Raye Motorsports entry past Kai Dixon on lap four and running unchallenged the rest of the way to pick up the $2,500 payday. Luke Didiuk advance to second with Dana Genn taking third.
