It wasn't a matter of if, it was just a matter of when Anthony would end up in victory lane, that came true last night with him winning his first SK Modified race at Stafford. Are whole night didn't go as planed tho. In the heat race we unfortunately missed the handicap position by 1 spot. So Anthony was forced to start 17th. After all the wreck he avoided and we finally got some green flag racing Anthony was in 4th. He made it up to 3rd on the restart and quickly made it up to second. It wasn't long until the next caution came out and Anthony dropped back to 3rd, a few laps later he regained 2nd. He ran down the leader and alittle contacted coming off turn 2 gave Anthony the opportunity to slip by and take the lead. Anthony then drove his way to his first SK Modified win
We have to thank:
