The finish of the first 50-lap segment of the People's United Bank Milk Bowl at Thunder Road Int'l Speedbowl, Barre, Vt.:

--Joey Polewarczyk, Jr., passed Brian Hoar on lap 17 to take the lead, then cruised to an easy segment 1 win. Polewarczyk's car spewed water in victory lane, but he said the gauges read only 210 degrees. "The Ford engines run hot regularly, so I'm not worried."

Polewarczyk said that due to the inversion to start the second segment, he will have to be patient in making his way to the front, but that the format change from 50 laps to 75 in the second round will help him. "The second segment has always been my enemy, but the extra 25 laps will be good," Polewarczyk said. "I'll be able to think twice before I make a pass and make a hole in traffic. In the past it was easy to panic and wreck yourself, now we can all take a little more time."

Polewarczyk was excited about his chances for the overall win: "It's awesome to go out and establish yourself in the first segment. The car was awesome, I can't wait for the rest of it."

--Runner-up Brian Hoar's team said their car was loose in the first segment, but they've made changes to get a better handle for the rest of the race.

--Patrick Laperle hit the wall at lap 22, but said his car should be okay for the rest of the day. "The car was very loose even before I hit the wall," he said.

--Scott Payea finished 14th in the first segment after an early scuffle with Ben Rowe. Payea said the toe was knocked out on his car, but none of the damage was bad enough to slow the car down.

"The car was great, even after that hit," Payea said. "I think we're good enough to win the second segment and get back in this thing. That's the plan."
