WEST HAVEN – Milton’s Shawn Moquin took fifth place in the 20-lap mini stock feature July 12 at Devil’s Bowl Speedway.
With the super stock division off for the evening, the mini stock was elevated to a 20-lap feature. A few weeks ago, Moquin took first place in the 15-lap mini stock car race June 28.
But on Sunday, Moquin was surpassed by first-time winner Dakota Desabrais from Hampton, N.Y. Desabrais picked up his first checkered flag after coming from behind in the eighth lap.
A forced restart to the race with only four laps left, caused Desabrais to fend off many challengers, including second-place finisher Griff Mahoney and third-place finisher Chris Conroy.
The podium-takers were followed by Chris Summer from Ripton, VT and Moquin.
Competition at Devil’s Bowl Speedway returns July 19, with limited grandstand seating and drive-in spectator parking. Tickets are $16.50 per person for grandstand seating or $21.60 per person for drive-in parking; tickets must be purchased online by 5:15 p.m. on Sunday at https://buytickets.at/devilsbowlspeedway.
