The weekend started out with a chance of rain at his hometown track but it stayed away. That was the first good news of the night. The second good news was Rougeux managed to start 5th in the 2nd heat race. “There was a lot of lapped traffic and that held me up a little,” he said. “I managed to move into 3rd place with only two laps to go. That locked me into the lottery draw for the feature.”

Not only did Rougeux make it to the feature, he started on the outside pole position. “I took the lead from the green flag,” he said. “I was challenged by Dave Murdick for two laps and then I moved to the point position and never let go of the lead in 25 laps.” The third great news of the night was Rougeux made it to first place and ended up in the Winner’s Circle.

Team Rouguex races on tracks that consist of light powdered dust. “Our K&N air and oil filters protect our engines from that powdered dust and are just marvelous,” he said. “We get excellent filtration and additional horsepower.”

During the race there were several cautions, but Rouguex’s car was perfect on every restart.

“We’re trying to pick up our racing pace and move up in the Dirt Car Modified Series,” said Rougeux. “We’re trying different circuits which include 35 lap races.”

Team Rougeux will be back at Lernerville Speedway this weekend and then off to Canadaigua Speedway in New York for a 35 lap feature event.
