Brit Andersen of Branford, CT made history with his win at Seekonk Speedway on Saturday night, August 27, 2005.  Andersen will enter the record books as the first-ever winner in the Ford Focus Midget portion of the Boston Louie Seymour Memorial Classic.  Andersen took the lead from Ryan Smith on lap four of the 9th Annual Boston Louie Seymour Memorial Classic and never looked back.  Andersen jumped form his third place starting position to take the lead on the opening lap of the 29-lap feature but it was all for not as the pass was negated by a spin by the Shawn Gosselin.  On the complete restart, Ryan Smith resumed his position on the pole.

This time it took Andersen three laps to assert himself as the leader once again.  Under racing conditions, Andersen began to stretch the lead.  By lap 10, he had the straightaway lead over the Smith.  A single lane later, Aaron Wall motored into second position over Smith.  The duel between Wall and Smith was far from over.  Smith battled back to reclaim second and Wall began to backslide.  Michael Sboro had worked his way into second while  multi-time feature winner Jeff Abold had moved into the top five.

The second caution of the night flew on lap 15 for a spin Dana Messier.  On the restart, Andersen continued to show the way with Smith, Sboro, Abold and Wall in tow.  Sboro, Abold and Wall made quick work of Smith sending him back to the fifth spot before the third and final caution flew on lap 17 for an incident that involved Ginny Quinones.

Once back to action, the event went green the remainder of the way with Andersen taking down the win over Sboro,Abold and Wall inside the top-five.  Nick Wean, Stephanie Stevens, Wade Mattesen, Gosselin and Adam Fusco rounded out the top-ten.
