Neri survives carnage for Late Model win at Desoto

aaProvided by Desoto Speedway
On a night that saw a lot of bent sheet metal, flaring tempers – and even flying fists between a pair of longtime rivals – it was Nick Neri who found himself holding the trophy after Saturday night’s Turner Tree and Landscape with Sunoco Southern Racing Fuels 50-lap Super Late Model feature at Desoto Speedway
Joe Boyd grabbed the lead from polesitter Michael Atwell at the drop of the green flag. As Boyd and Atwell ran nose-to-tail around the three-eighths mile oval for the first 25 laps the action was tight in the battle for third through sixth between Chris Fontaine, Icebreaker 100 winner Jeff Scofield and Jesse Dutilly.
On lap 25 Dutilly and Scofield made contact in turn four, with Dutilly losing several spots in the exchange. The caution flew two laps later for Dylan Martin’s spin.

Scofield takes win in 30th Icebreaker 100

Jeff Scofield
By SCOTT LOCKWOOD

Desoto Speedway

For the first three quarters of the 30th running of the Icebreaker 100 this weekend at Desoto Speedway, 2014 Brighthouse Series and Desoto track champion Jesse Dutilly looked like he’d start 2015 in a place he found quite often in 2014: victory lane.

But after a mechanical failure 26 laps from the end of the race brought the Bradenton’s driver’s hopes of winning the track’s biggest race of the year to a screeching halt it was veteran driver Jeff Scofield who was left holding the trophy in front of the sun-drenched crowd in Eastern Manatee County.

Dutilly started on the pole and led the first five laps before being overtaken by Scofield for the top spot. As Scofield, Dutilly, Chris Fontaine and Anthony Cataldi battled for the top spot Cataldi and Fontaine tangled, triggering a melee that collected several cars and sending Cataldi to the pits with damage. He was able to rejoin the field before the restart after quick repairs.

Dutilly passed Scofield for the lead on the outside on a lap 21 restart and wasted no time pulling out to a 10 car-length lead over Scofield, Fontaine and defending race winner Joe Boyd. He had over a one-second advantage over Scofield when the caution flew for Troy McNabb’s spin in turn four. (more…)
