He may be from out of town--even out of state--but Roger Avants knows the Saugus Speedway track a lot better than he lets on.
Avants, from Littleton, Colo., took the lead on the fifth lap and held on under intense pressure by Troy Beebe to win the NASCAR Southwest Tour stock car race at Saugus on Saturday night.
It was Avants' second win in the Southwest Tour for Grand American stock cars. It was the sixth race of the 14-race series. Avants is the first double-winner in the series.
His first win was in the the opening race of the series at Saugus Speedway on March 29. The Miller 100 marked only his second appearance at the track.
