Garbo Cleans Up At Waterford
WATERFORD, Conn. – David Garbo, Jr. was the winner of the Legends Car feature during Wild ‘n Wacky Wednesday at the Waterford Speedbowl.
The 20-lap Legend Cars feature showcased another late race showdown between Garbo and Dana Dimatteo. A week ago the two staged a memorable event that was too close to call at the checkered flag.
This week Garbo was the first to the front, rocketing his way through the field over the opening laps. He took the race lead on lap two from the younger of the Dimatteo brothers, Cory.
Once in the lead Garbo survived two caution periods, including a red flag on lap sixwhen Brendon Bock lost an engine causing a flash fire, and dropped fluid on the track which sent several cars wrecking behind him going into turn one. All drivers were OK following the incident.
After the cleanup Garbo streaked out to the lead as Dana Dimatteo raced to second position. Garbo was well ahead when Cory Dimatteo and Nicholas Lascuola spun in turn one on the final lap while dueling for third position to bring out the caution flag.
The green-white-checkered restart pitted Garbo vs. Dimatteo in a final fight for the win. Garbo raced
ahead off turn two coming to the white flag and went on to the victory. Dimatteo placed second while first-year Legend Cars driver Nicholas Sowa placed his best finish in the division with third.
Other winners at Waterford Wednesday included Derek Debbis (bandolero), Dan Butler (super x-car), Craig Miner (x-car) and Chuck McDonald (wacky x-car hot dog race).
