WEST HAVEN — North Bennington’s Marty Kelly III earned his second career win on Saturday at Devil’s Bowl Speedway in the 20-lap Sportsman Modified Feature.

During lap 16, Kelly III saw an opening as Demetrios Drellos and {span}Tanner Siemons were engaging in a side-by-side battle for the lead and snuck through, passing both drivers with one move to take the lead.{/span}

Two quick restarts on lap 18 forced Kelly to fend off the field, and he sped across the line for the second win of his career.

The 20-lap feature saw five different lead changes, though Kelly held on for the final four laps to secure the victory.

Manchester’s Frank Hoard III had a pair of ninth place finishes on Saturday.
