LOUDON, N.H. — It had been so long since Todd Szegedy had taken a checkered flag that he was willing to do anything to grab it.
The only thing keeping him from it was Donnie Lia’sNo. 4 Dodge.
On the final lap of Saturday’s F.W. Webb 100, Szegedy wasn’t going to let it stop him.
“I knew I was going to make my move,” Szegedy said. “Donnie threw a pretty good block on me at the same time when I tried passing him. We clanked a little bit.”
Going into Turn 3 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, Szegedy sent his No. 2 Chevrolet diving to the inside.
With Lia out of the picture, Szegedy hung on for his first Whelen Modified tour win in two years. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
