314456Division titles were on the line last Saturday night at Wiscasset Speedway, and the champs rose to the occasion. Point leaders Adam Chadbourne of the NAPA Super Street division, Nick Hinkley of the Late Model Sportsman class, Ryan Chadwick of the Thunder 4 division, and Jerry McKenna of the Mini Trucks were all on hand to defend their lead and to bring the championship home. The weather was warm and pleasant. The crowd cheered on their favorite drivers and watched as three of the four point leaders won their division races. Wrapping up the night was a one hundred lap Enduro.

The spotlighted race of the week was a thirty-five lap NAPA Super Street feature. Heading into the last point race, Adam Chadbourne of the #1 had only a six point lead over James Osmond of the #05. Prior to race time Osmond said, “Chadbourne has dominated in this division, and his car is fast today. I would need to beat him by four positions for me to win the championship. We will have to see what happens.”

Walpole, N.H. – Entries have been pouring in for the upcoming Fadden General Store 100 at North Woodstock, New Hampshire’s White Mountain Motorsports Park (WMMP) this Saturday, September 20th. 


There have been 28 drivers who have filed pre-entries for the event at the ¼ mile nestled in the White Mountains.  The usual suspects from the Granite State Pro Stock Series (GSPSS) are entered into the event, including point leader Matt Frahm, Dillon Moltz, Larry Gelinas, Derek Griffith, and Barry Gray.  Only 17 points separate Frahm, Moltz, and Gelinas, with two races remaining.  Frahm, who has finished on the podium in each of his last four races, and only finished worse than 7th once in the 2014 season (Star 6/28), and is focused on the task ahead.  “We have been working our butts off at the shop,” a determined Frahm spoke.  “We are determined to win the championship.  Everybody has been clicking extremely well at the track, and extremely efficient getting the most out of the car during practice.  Even if we are the fastest on the speed charts, the team never gives up on trying to find more speed, and I feel that is a huge part to our success recently.”

Patrick Dillon of Portland, Maine is racing the #45 legend car in the MOAT Mountain Legend road course series at New Hampshire Motor Speedway (NHMS). “I raced the NHKA Racing Series (Karting) for two years. I loved the racing experience and the NHKA group, but at 240 lbs. I broke a lot of kart parts. After totaling my last kart, I decided to invest in a Legends car.”

The road course at NHMS has long straight aways’, hair pin turns, inclines and declines, so for the race teams setting up the race cars is a lot of work. Though Patrick has quite a bit of experience racing on the road course. “Time, team and the people in the paddock. Between NHKA, The 24 Hours of Lemons and The Moat Mountain Road Course Series, I have quite a few laps on the track, but I’m still learning the course. In five years on the track, I’ve been happy with my line through turn three only a handful of times.
I’m grateful to have Bob Weymouth and Jeff Gaudette set up the car.
I’m lucky to have a team that pulls together when there’s a problem.
When teammate Luke Hiebert’s motor blew, Luke, Steve and myself, were able to replace the motor in an afternoon due the support of the track and other people in the paddock. The competition on the track is transitioned into help and support off the track.”

Lee, NH – The Granite State Pro Stock Series invaded the Lee USA Speedway on Friday night, with some 30 teams filling the infield pit area in preparation for the night’s racing action.  Three heats, a consolation round, and the 100-lap main event were on the card for the GSPSS, with the weekly Late Model Sportsmen, Hobby Stocks, and Ironmen filling out the program.


Lee’s regular NASCAR Whelen All-American Series divisions put on an entertaining show for the fans, with Groton, MA driver Geoff Rollins making his first trip to victory lane in 2014 in the Prime Storage and Warehouse Late Model Sportsman 30-lap main event.


Fresh off a heat win earlier in the night, Ray Dinsmore of Alfred, ME broke out to the early lead, but he was quickly knocked off the point by rookie contender Mark Parenteau of Groveland, MA, who took the lead on lap three aboard the Brian House entry.

NASCAR’s problems of not selling tickets and dropping TV ratings is a situation that just has to be solved.  Forget the excuses that all of sports world-wide are suffering with deficits due to a global ailing economy.  Just because Brian France was able to get a huge increase over the previous contracts starting in 2015, it does not mean the problems are solved.  That increase TV money is what is holding NASCAR together. But for how long?   There’s a cliche in the rough and tumble business world. “Don’t tell me what you did for me yesterday. What are you going to do for me today,” say the captains of global industry.
We can’t believe those TV rights contracts don’t contain a performance clause that are tied to increased TV ratings!  It’s time for NASCAR’s Brian France to get  going. Let’s talk about Brian’s job performance review by the fans.  We have seen reports on the social media that Brian is not held in high esteem by the folks who buy the tickets and are not watching the races on TV.

Emily Parkard

EAST MONTPELIER, Vt – Determined to put the previous finish from last week in the Vermont State Late Model Championship race at Thunder Road behind her, Emily Packard went out and drove her 9x Northstar Fireworks/Packard Fuels Ford to a third place finish in the second race of the 4 race championship battle.


“We had a great run and a great race,” Packard said, “The car was really fast and we were impressed with how well it ran tonight.”  The night began with her starting in the back (7th) in her heat race, Packard found herself held up for a couple laps, but was able to move her way forward.  At the end of the 10 lap heat, Packard finished in the 4th position (with a plus three), which safely got her in the race and a decent starting position for the feature.  “We got held up a little bit in the beginning, but we were able to maneuver past them,” said Packard, “We caught the third place car right there at the end, and with a few more laps could have had at least one more spot, but I am happy with the starting position it gave us.”

NEPS weekend at 106 011


Oxford, ME – While the PASS North teams opened their season at Oxford Plains Speedway, the Amsoil Nelcar Legends Tour contested their third race of the season to kick the day off. After being delayed a day due to constant rain in the area, the Legends Car field was ready to get their race under way on Sunday. It was a thrilling race for the win at the finish, and the race ended with Kevin Girard Jr. getting his first Legends Car victory!

“We’ve been at this for a little over a year now but this is our first full season of racing Legends Cars so it’s great to get our first win so early in the season,” Girard said in Victory Lane, “We had a great car and just made the right moves on the bottom, I’m excited for my team and I hope we continue to run as well as we have.”

Waterbury, VT –Thunder Road International Speedbowl will open this weekend for the 55th season of championship stock car racing. Billed as the “Nation’s Site of Excitement”, Thunder Road is known for its close door-banging, “take no prisoners” style of racing action.
