Wiscasset Speedway underwent a makeover this past week. The back stretch wall was pushed back, making a bit more room on the back stretch at Maine’s fastest oval. Ken Minott, track promoter / announcer, said, “It’s going to help the outside guy when they’re racing out of turn two onto the back stretch. It’s going to give them the room they needs so they’re not squeezed against the wall. It will make for better side by side racing. We’ve got to thank Reno Excavation & Paving of West Bath for all their hard work getting it ready in just a week”. The new portion of track was put to the test on Saturday when fans lined the grandstands to watch Group Two Division races. Late Model Sportsman, Strictly Streets, Mini Trucks, and Thunder 4’s all raced. The flex race of the week was a non-point New England Four Cylinder Prostock feature.
