Beaulieu Racing

Durham, ME – After a week off from racing, Evan Beaulieu and the 56 Hancock Lumber team are ready to get back on track this weekend at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway. The last two events have been eventful ones for the team, but they are rested and ready to make a charge during the second half of the season. Last season at this time was when Beaulieu started to come into his own as a rookie in the super competitive Pro Series at Beech Ridge.


“It’s been a tough season for us that’s for sure, we had a lot of expectations going into this year the way we finished last year,” Beaulieu said of his season so far, “Unfortunately we haven’t been able to get everything to click right, whether it be the setup, the tire sizes, my driving, there’s a lot to being competitive in this division, I think we’ve made gains over the off week making our car much better than it’s been all year, I’m excited to see what we have on Saturday.”

Evan Beaulieu

Scarborough, ME – After a rough start to the 2014 season, Evan Beaulieu and the 56 Hancock Lumber team rebounded in a big way this past weekend. Beaulieu lead laps in the 50 lap Pro Series feature at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway on his way to a sixth place result in what he described as one of the roughest races he’s been a part of. This was a satisfying result for the team, as they have fought to make their car competitive throughout the first three races, Beaulieu was ecstatic after the race.


“This feels so good to have a great run tonight, we had a competitive car, this team did a great job and I was on the wheel tonight,” Beaulieu said after the 55 minute feature event, “We were a rocket for the first three or four laps after a restart, and after that the car just kept tightening up through the run and that ended up costing us the win, but we are making gains and I’m thrilled to just get a good finish, we had a lot of fun tonight and that’s what it’s all about.”

Scarborough, ME – Evan Beaulieu and the #56 Hancock Lumber team were looking forward to getting back on track this past weekend for race two at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway, however the race didn’t go as planned. After running in the top ten, Beaulieu was involved in a chain reaction incident that sent his Chevrolet for a spin off turn four, putting him one lap and out of contention.


“We had a decent car tonight, I just really hate it for all my guys there that we were caught up in an incident, we are all working hard and we want to be up there contending in the top five like we know we’re capable of,” Beaulieu said sounding dejected after the race, “We probably had a top ten car tonight and they stacked up in front of me and I got out of it, looking back I should’ve just kept digging and we may not of been put in that spot.”

Beaulieu Racing

This weekend the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) kicks off the 2014 race season at Oxford Plains Speedway. Then PASS will head to BRMS where former NELCAR Legends Champion Evan Beaulieu, will try and qualify for the PASS SLM feature. “We plan on starting the season at BRMS for the PASS race, and from there it all depends on sponsorship. We do plan on running the Oxford 250, if I can find a ride for that race it will make it a lot easier for us to be competitive. It just makes more sense to do it with another car since we race at BRMS the night before. From there maybe we will run a few others towards the end of the season.”


The one thing all drivers do in the off season is to get ready for the next race season, “It’s been a very busy off season for us, we’ve been working hard getting our new car ready for the start of our season at BRMS in a few weeks. Between that and working at Hancock Lumber and building my Nitro Designs Company, I haven’t had much time for anything else. It was a rough winter up here in Maine, I’m more than ready to get back behind the wheel.”

A gorgeous late summer day greeted race fans at the beautiful Beech Ridge Motor Speedway in Scarborough, Maine on Sunday, and they were treated to some great racing in all three P.A.S.S. divisions that participated on the final day of the event.

Young Austin Theriault carried the checkered flag in the 300 lap Super Late Model event, but it was a challenge from the start as he led for the first four laps before outside pole sitter, Corey Bubar took over until a lap 90 restart for a minor spin by Kyle Desouza. At this point racing became intense as some of the top cars were starting to make their way through traffic and were headed to the front. Theriault got the jump on the restart, and Kelly Moore erupted from the fourth spot, and jumped to the second spot at the green. Travis Benjamin also slipped by Bubar, and Michael Landry worked Bubar’s inside for fifth. While Theriault led the race, Bubar battled his way back into the second spot before the caution flew once again for a minor spin in turn two. Suddenly, Travis Benjamin headed to the pits, the hood went up, and apparent mechanical problems eliminated the 2013 TD Bank 250 from any more action.
