Brad Babb Wins 2017 Austim Awareness 350 Super Championship

A Rich Hayes press release
It was championship night for the Autism Awareness 350 Supers at Star Speedway on Saturday, and although Windham, ME ace Brad Babb held a comfortable lead in the standings headed into the season finale, it was anything but an easy night for Babb and his BWJ Racing team.
The trouble started in qualifying, when Babb got turned and collected the outside retaining wall, nearly ending his night. The crew went to work and made repairs in time for the feature event, where Babb got tangled up with Mike Collins on lap two, sending him back to the pits once again, this time with a flat left front. The championship hopeful rejoined the field at the rear, and immediately started picking his way toward the front. Richard Humphrey had set the early pace, leading the way for the first ten laps before he spun from contention and brought the field under caution. Babb broke into the top five shortly after the restart, while Plaistow’s Steve Duphily slipped past Mike Humphrey of Cornish, ME to take over the race lead. Duphily set sail for the next dozen laps, while Babb knocked them off one by one to make his way up to second. With lapped traffic becoming a factor late in the race, Duphily continued to lead, with Babb now just a car length behind. Babb gave it all he had, but his efforts came up just short, as Duphily checkered first to score the win in the season-ending feature event. While Duphily was joined by family and friends for his victory celebration, Babb and his legion of fans gathered to celebrate the 2017 track championship, an impressive result for his rookie season behind the wheel of a 350 Super. Mike Humphrey was third in the finishing order, followed by Mike Keddy, Jim Storace, Mike Collins, Richard Humphrey, Nick Pappas, Nette Humphrey, and Brenna Humphrey.
Former champion Barry Raymond of Hampstead survived a flurry of caution flags to collect the win in the action-packed Omni Electric/Bosowski Properties Outlaw Late Model feature, outrunning the field to score a convincing victory. “Rocket Rob” MacRae of Billerica, MA was second, followed by Chuck Dehney of Pelham, Kevin Kephart of Rutland, MA, and Ben Bosowski.
The Woody’s Auto Strictly Stock main saw another impressive performance by John Cashman of Danvers, MA, who passed leader Michele Fushpanski of Salisbury, MA just after the crossed flags, and went on to collect the win. Jim Storace of Kingston was up in the late laps to checkers second, with “Mad Max” Dolliver of Londonderry, Fushpanski, Kris Schroeder of Haverhill, MA, Tom Mackey, Mike Williams, Russ Douphinette, Tom Thibeault, and Rob MacRae the rest of the top ten.
Points leader Bobbo Williams of Dracut, MA padded his lead with another trip to victory lane in the Brickyard Roadrunner main, with 2016 champ Paul “The Wheelman” Wainwright of Salem, Dan Sweeney of Barrington, Billy Osborne of Plaistow and Tyler Chase of Sandown second through fifth.
In the L & W Auto Six Shooters, it was rookie driver Kyle Augevich of Fremont picking up his first career win over Joe Roberts, Jr., Eric Waterhouse, Ryan Pitkin, Jamie Holland, Chris Howard, Nate LeClair, Brandon Flanders, Randy Washburn, and Cody Hodgdon.
After a week off, Star Speedway will be back in action on Saturday night, September 30, with championships on the line for the Strictly Stocks, Six Shooters, and Roadrunners. The NEMA Midgets will be in action as well, in addition to the annual running of the Skofield Memorial for dwarf cars.
