HERMON — Kris Watson of Kenduskeag became only the second driver in the Casella Recycling Street Stocks to win more than one feature race this season as he posted his second victory of the shortened season Saturday night at Speedway 95.
Watson began the 30-lap feature on the pole after winning one of the three qualifying races run to set the starting positions for the 21-car field.
At the drop of the green, he surged out front and maintained the lead through the race’s three caution periods.
Milford’s Deane Smart started on the outside pole after winning the second qualifier, and chased Watson for the entire race, finishing second. Behind them, the competition was fierce, with Shane Tatro of Levant, the only other two-time winner in the field, coming from a 12th-place start to finish third.
Fourth went to Holden’s Steve Kimball, with Joe Doughty of Hampden having his first top five of the season. Watson’s only other win came on opening day. Kyle Robinson of Clinton won the third qualifier.
