WISCASSET — Doubt, at least for Andrew McLaughlin, is the name of the game. He had no reason to doubt anything Saturday night.

The Harrington fisherman drove away from the field over the second half of the main event, opening Wiscasset Speedway season with a win in the 50-lap Late Model feature. With state guidelines allowing for fans to return to the track in limited capacity as the region cautiously reopens during the COVID-pandemic, the speedway held its first event of the 2020 season.

“It feels really good to be back right now,” said McLaughlin, who now has 11 career wins at Wiscasset. “It’s been a long offseason, but everything feels good and things are going in the right direction.”

McLaughlin, the 2018 track champion and a three-time winner a year ago, easily held off Liberty’s Josh St. Clair and Clinton’s Frank Moulton for the victory in the caution-free event.
