North Woodstock, NH- Brad Babb held off a hard charging Jeremy Davis in a caution-riddled event to pick up his second win of the season in the Fadden General Store 100 at White Mountain Motorsports Park (WMMP).
The largest field of the year saw 32 cars fight to get into the inaugural Fadden General Store 100. After the inversion, Bobby Nadeau and Barry Gray led the field to green at the head of the 24 car pack to begin the race. Gray would overtake Nadeau and lead the first few laps, before the first of 12 cautions came out for Nadeau, as the Buxton, Maine driver spun on lap 15. That would pit veteran against young-blood as Gray would see Babb on his outside on the restart. Babb took the lead on lap 16, and would fend off Gray’s multiple challenges on restarts, including a hard hit by 2012 champion Bobby Cabral head-on into the wall, until Jeremy Davis nabbed the second spot, setting up a good battle between two feature winners on the 2014 season. Davis and Babb had the cars to beat, as on every restart the two would rocket in front of the rest of the field, and at one point enjoyed a 10 car-length lead over the rest of the pack.
