Lee, NH. -- 16-year old Sammy Rameau started outside on the front row, took the lead from pole sitter Brian Robie on lap-3, and went to victory lane for the first time Friday night, July 13, in Valenti Modified Racing Series action at Lee USA Speedway, Lee, NH.  The race was the first of two 50-lap ‘Cone’ races. Series point leader Anthony Nocella, the 2017 series champion, nabbed the second feature.

Rameau, of Westminster, MA; drove a flawless race in putting the Race Choice sponsored 6MA car in victory lane. The family operation headed up by father Randy, began their involvement in
modified racing at Claremont Speedway.

Early leader Robie, of Sunapee, NH; who had never been to the Lee track until Friday, finished a solid second after a fourth place finish at Monadnock (NH) Speedway a week ago, Todd Patnode, of Swanzey, NH, finish third, Tony Ricci, of Westbrook, ME, made a late race charge to finish fourth, with Andy Shaw, of Conway, NH;
rounding out the top five. 

Russ Hersey, CJ Bolton, rookie Jacob Perry, Mike Willis Jr, and
Woody Pitkat finished sixth through tenth.  

The Lee facility has provided many firsts over the years. Twin 50-lap VMRS series races were started at Lee, the well-received ‘Cone’ race debuted Friday, and first time tour/type series drivers have found
victory lane at the 3/8th mile oval.  

Rameau from Westminster, MA; becomes the fourth driver in two seasons to win their first Valenti series race at the Lee track.  In 2017, Mike Douglas Jr, Dan Meservey Jr, and Troy Talman, garnered
their first career tour-type wins at Lee. 

The caution flag waved on laps 15 and again on lap-34. The first race was completed in 24 minutes 30 seconds.
