WATERFORD – The goal for Ken Cassidy Jr. this year is a NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Division IV short track national championship, and thus far the mission is going well.
For the seventh time in eight events this year it was Cassidy, of Lisbon, celebrating in victory lane Saturday following the 28-lap Mini Stock feature.
“[Winning] never gets old,” Cassidy said. “It’s one thing that never gets old.”
Jeffrey Cembruch of Wallingford was second and Bill Leonard of Charlestown, R.I. was third.
Cassidy is currently leading the Division IV national short track standings.
“Two years ago I finished third [in the national standings], last year I finished second,” Cassidy said. “There’s only one way to go from there, I don’t want to go back to fourth. I want to get up there and finally win one.”
Cassidy passed Charles Canfield for the lead with 18 laps left and then held off a charging Cembruch over the final three laps.
“These guys are awesome to race with,” Cassidy said. “Everybody treat everybody with respect. That makes the division awesome for the fans and the drivers and everybody.”
Said Cembruch: “I’m going chalk that one up to driver error. I just tried a little too hard I guess. What are you going to do? We’re getting closer and closer to Kenny.”
