SCARBOROUGH — Matt Bourgoine hasn’t missed a beat at Beech Ridge.
The Amsoil NELCAR Legends Tour driver opened the Thursday Thunder season with his second consecutive win Thursday night, rolling from the tail end of the field to grab the lead before the halfway mark of the 25-lap feature event. Kevin Girard Jr. finished second to Bourgoine after a late-race restart, with veteran Bob Weymouth crossing the line in third.
Others winners Thursday included Todd Libby in the Mad Bombers, Dave Moreau in the Beetle Bugs, Kaitlynn Leavitt in the Ladies and Jeff Gillette in the Mighty Trucks.
Thursday night was a warm-up for Saturday night’s NASCAR Whelen All-American Series event — which features the first of two Autograph Nights scheduled for the 2014 season. The Pro Series, Sport Series and Wildcats will all be in action.
The green flag flies at 7 p.m.
