Buffone Among Winners As Thompson’s World Series Begins

THOMPSON, Conn. — Christopher Buffone was both good and lucky on his way to the $1,000 win in the Street Stock Open at Connecticut’s Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park on Friday. With laps winding down, it seemed Buffone could only watch Baxter drive off into the night. After leading the first seven laps, Buffone gave way to Jimmy Renfrew Jr., who came from seventh on the grid to sweep underneath him. Coming out of turn two on the 10th lap, though, Renfrew’s car shut down, handing the lead back to Buffone. Baxter made his move on the 17th circuit, sticking his nose out front and then clearing Buffone a lap later. Like Buffone, Jared Roy also made the most of some good fortune to get the win in the Thompson Mini Stock feature. Trudeau tore back through the field and tried to chase down Roy in the closing laps.
