Milford’s Garett Hayman showed up at Speedway 95 Wednesday night with the car to beat, but no one was able to beat it as he won both 25 lap features in the Little Enduro Division. In the first 25 lap event, a caution free series race for the division, Hayman passed pole sitter Andrew Crosby on the 6th lap and cruised to the win . Crosby finished second with Scott Bonney of Bangor finishing third. Fourth went to Carmel’s Jeremy Scott and Charles McKusick of Abbott finished fifth. In the second event, the field was reversed and Hayman started last . By lap 6, he was past Crosby again and had the win in hand until a lap 21 red flag stopped the race. On the restart, Crosby tried a mad dash from his third place position up the inside of Hayman, but Hayman wisely pulled up to give Crosby room, then used the outside groove to power past Crosby to pick up his second win of the night. Crosby was again second with Ladies Division driver Danielle Beale of Hampden finishing third after accepting track owner Del Merritt’s invitation to the ladies to join the field. Dennis Burns of Carmel finished fourth with Chris Hitchcock of Hampden fifth.
In the pick up trucks, Dana Harlow of Bucksport passed David Gray of Dixmont following a lap 3 restart caused when Derek Pearson of Glenburn tangled with Jim Carr Jr. of Clifton, sending Carr into the turn one wall. Pearson was sent to the pit for aggressive driving, and Carr was too damaged to continue. Gray finished second with Jason Haskell of Levant third. Roger Smith Jr. of Bangor finished fourth and Carr was awarded the fifth spot.
Becky Elston of Carmel won the Ladies division feature over last week’s winner Emma Libby of Glenburn, who caught Elston in the closing laps, but couldn’t make the pass for the win. Libby finished second with Hampden’s Danielle Beal in third. Fourth went to Nicole Smith of Clifton with Amy Houde of W. Enfield in fifth.
Bob Seger Jr. of Frankfort led all 20 laps of the Big Enduro feature to post the win, but it wasn’t easy as he had to contend with 2011 champion Ed Cobb Jr. of LaGrange, who stayed on his bumper for most of the race. Cobb finished second with Alvin McNevin of Clifton in third. Fourth went to Shawn Racilla of Dover with Shawn McNevin of Hudson in fifth.
Track Owner Del Merritt announced to the Drivers and fans that next week, on June 27, the Little Enduro feature would be 50 laps long, pay $500.00 to win, and grandstand admission would be only $5.00 per adult. Racing will start at 7:00, with bike races for kids up to 12 years old preceding the racing at 6:30.
