Scarborough, ME – Evan Beaulieu and the 56 Hancock Lumber team were back at their home track of Beech Ridge Motor Speedway this past weekend for the season opener of the Nascar All-American Series, Pro Series division.  After two weeks of practice with some promising results, Beaulieu and the team felt confident in their car going into week one. However, track conditions threw the team a curveball, as Beaulieu fought his way to a 14thplace finishing position in the 24 car field.

I’m just ran the outside and drove the thing as hard as I could, and I’m surprised we finished 14th, we will take that and make the right adjustments for next weekends race so we can run near the front.” Read Full Article →
