NAPLES ME – (7/21/2009) There’s something for everyone this weekend when Groveton New Hampshire’s Riverside Speedway once again hosts Summerfest 2009, a weekend of motorized mayhem that promises to be bigger and better than ever.
Presented by Dalton Mountain Motors and the Marshall Insurance Agency, the two day extravaganza kicks off on Friday with the $1,000.00 to win Ray Haskell Memorial 100 for street stocks plus late models, and daredevils. The monster trucks share the spotlight, with Predator and Pouncer on hand to wow the fans. The action gets underway at 7:00 PM.
On Saturday night its PASS time, with the lightning quick Pro All Stars Series super late models taking center stage for 150 laps of green flag racing on the tough quarter mile. The popular PASS Mods share the spotlight with Riverside’s own Cyclones, Daredevils and Angels, plus another round of monster truck thrills and chills with Predator and Pouncer. Saturday's events kick off at 5:00 PM .
There’s free camping on site and best of all, a two day ticket is just $25.00 for adults, $20.00 for juniors and seniors and eight bucks for kids five to nine. Friday only adult tickets are $12.00, and Saturday’s is $15.00.
2008 PASS North super late model Champion Johnny Clark kicked off his title charge at Riverside last season, earning the victory in a downpour over Travis Benjamin and Derek Ramstrom. Clark currently holds a forty five point lead over Ramstrom in the standings, and Adam Bates trails Ramstrom by just four points.
Andy Shaw has been on a tear in the PASS Mods, winning three of the first five races and topping the point standings by a 30 point margin over Scott Grant. Steve Bennett Jr. trails Grant by two markers in third. Fourth place points man Bill Dixon was the 2008 Summerfest PASS Mod winner, and he’ll be looking to gain ground on Shaw and the others with another Riverside win.
