A www.staffordspeedway.com PR w/AMM headline addition
In the 20-lap SK Light feature event, Mark Bakaj took the early lead on the outside of Todd Douillard with Glenn Griswold, Mikey Flynn, and Brett Gonyaw lined up behind them. Gonyaw took to the outside lane to get around Flynn for fourth place on lap-3 and the caution came out with 3 laps complete for debris in turn 3.
Bakaj took the lead back under green with Douillard and Griswold behind him but the caution came back out with 5 laps complete for a multi-car spin at the exit of turn 4.
Bakaj again took the lead with Douillard in hot pursuit. Flynn and Andrew Molleur were side by side for third when the caution came back out with 7 laps complete for Bryan Narducci, who came to a stop in the middle of turns 3+4 infield grass.
Bakaj and Douillard ran side by side for a lap on the restart before Bakaj got clear into the lead on lap-9. Douillard then slid back to fifth as Molleur took second, Marcello Rufrano third, and Flynn fourth. Molleur was looking to the inside of Bakaj for the lead on lap-12 and he was able to take the lead with an assist from Rufrano down the backstretch going into turn 3. Douillard spun in turns 3+4 to bring the caution back out with 12 laps complete and put Bakaj back up front for the restart with Molleur to his outside.
Molleur streaked into the lead on the outside of Bakaj with Gonyaw taking third. Griswold and Alexander Pearl were side by side for fourth behind the lead trio. Pearl got clear into fourth on lap-15 with Griswold now side by side with Bob Charland for fifth.
Molleur held Bakaj off to the checkered flag to pick up his first career SK Light win at Stafford. Gonyaw finished third with Narducci recovering to fourth and Pearl finished fifth.

Andrew Molleur Earns SK Modified Ride For 2018 At New London-Waterford Speedbowl
For the 2018 season at The New London Waterford Speedbowl Andrew Molleur will be driving an SK owned by Dave and Kristin Jackson of Prospect, CT.
At the end of 2017 Andrew was able to run 5 SK races, while contending for the SK Light Championship, which he lost by a mere 2 points. In those 5 starts Andrew had 5 top 10's, 3 top 5's and a 2nd place finish in the biggest SK race of 2017, the season ending 80 lap race. Andrew was quoted as saying “That was the BEST race all year" and " I really love racing that SK. It was a crazy night with all the late race restarts on the outside" Andrew ran in the top 5 all race. Andrew and his team were complimented by several competitors about how well he drove in the SK race. He gained the respect he gave other drivers as they told Andrew they were very comfortable racing side by side with him and how well he drives.
Shortly after the race the conversation began with Andrew’s father, Mike Molleur, and the Jacksons. It was decided that Andrew would be driving the SPAFCO chassis T/A powered SK owned by Dave and Kristin Jackson for the full Championship season at the New London-Waterford Speedbowl 2018.
This is not the first time Andrew has driven for an owner other than his family, he was the pilot of an SK Light owned by Kenny Barry for the past couple years. “I look forward to another AWESOME season of racing" Andrew stated "We ran a TQ this winter at the Indoor Racing Series and learned a lot." Andrew can't wait until next indoor season as he hopes to be a contender. Every time he straps into a race car he learns something new. Dave, Kristin, and Mark have been coming to the races and work really well with the existing team, it should be a good formula to be a threat each and every race.
With the Speedbowl scheduling 22 races the plan is to finish each and every race, grab every point possible, and maybe contend for a win.......or 5!!!
Andrew will have a busy and exciting schedule with 22 races at the Speedbowl and another 22 races at Stafford Speedway on Friday nights, also about 6+ NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour, MRS, and Open 80 races, and possibly some Thompson weekly shows. There will be no shortage of seat time.
