Girouard and MacDonald Continue Winning Ways

Mike Girouard kept his winning ways in tact as he scored an 

easy victory in the first of two amateur events this week.

Leaving from post position seven, Girouard got Rock n Delight

away fourth, tipped at the half and zooomed on by the field of

nine.Rock n Delight, the even money favorite, stopped the

teletimer in 1:57.4. Finishing second was the fast closing May

Day JoJo and driver Aaron Hall,who has closed the gap in the

point standings and now trails Alex Richardson by only four

points.Rounding out the triple was Bad Moonshine and Cony

Bonetti.The winner returned $4.00,while the 7-8-2 trifecta paid


The second amateur race was won by Mountain Rock and

driver Alex Mac Donald,who co-owns the Rock with Bobby

Marston. Alex,who dosen’t drive as much these days,has had

five starts with three wins and a third.Pretty good stuff.In

addition to winning in a very quick 1:54.4, the Rock paid

$75.40 to win.Finishing second (as he did in the first event)

was Aaron Hall and Native Lightning. Pinch hitting for Gary

Barbere and finishing third,was John Sears who piloted a Pair

of Deuces for Diane Hellen.The trifecta 6-2-1 paid a wopping


There is a battle going on to see who will be the leading point

getter. No less than four drivers,Alex Richardson,Aaron

Hall,Dan Tuccillo and Mike Girouard are separated by only

eleven points. Richardson,who just a few weeks ago had a

commanding lead,has seen that lead dwindle as the other

drivers score points in bunches.Without a doubt this race will

go down to the wire. It’s up for grabs now. Amateur action

continues on Monday and back again on friday the 28th as

part of The  Spirit of Massachusetts card.Surely to be a great

day of racing.
