The East Coast Thunder drivers took to the race track at New Hampshire Motor Speedway for the Paul’s TV Hi-Def 120 this past Sunday and once again it was Baltic, CT’s Chris Forster showing the way in the Thunder Modifieds. Forster started fourth on the fourteen car field and methodically worked his way to the front, leading forty-eight of the 120-laps on the evening. Most of those laps ledfor Forster came in the late stages of the event presented by paulstvgroton.com as he led Jim Windrow around in his #05 Paul’s TV Chevrolet. A green-white-checkered finish set up a fantastic battle between Forster, Window, Todd Taylor and Bobby Ambroceo over the final two circuits of the event with Forster holding off a hard charging and hungry Windrow for the win. Window finished second and admitted post race that he has a huge hill in front of him en route to a 2010 championship in the Thunder Modifieds. Taylor, Ambroceo and Brian Phalin completed the top five in the event. The event was slowed by fifteen cautions but because very competitive up front with six drivers swapping the lead eleven times. Windrow led the most laps of the evening (50 laps), finishing two laps up on Forster (48 laps led) for the award. Phalin came away with the Hard Charger Award after finishing fifth from his thirteenth starting position. Nine drivers finished the event, which took one hour thirty-nine minutes to complete.
The next event for the Thunder Modifieds on RLMtv is the Buckeye 150 on September 26th. The race will be the twelfth on the schedule for the “ground pounders” in 2010. ECT is back on the air on September 12th for the Richard Tilley Foundation 250 from Daytona.
