FULL MOON FEVER AT WISCASSET SPEEDWAY

Wiscasset Speedway was in action Saturday, August 25th with Group 1 on track. The full moon loomed overhead and seemed to add in its usual plot twists and turns. Super Streets and Thunder 4 Minis ran double features in an effort to make up a previously rained out event. Also in action were Pro Stocks, 4-Cylinder Pros, and a 100 lap Enduro to wrap up the show.

In the 25 lap make up feature for the Maxwells Market Super Streets, Jefferson’s Mike Hodgkins reclaimed the division point lead in picking up his 2nd win of the year. Rookie David Thompson notched his first podium finish in 2nd place, with Michael Harrison in 3rd. In the regularly scheduled 25 lap spotlight feature, former 2-time champ Jason Oakes of Boothbay held off reigning 2-time champ Josh Bailey in claiming his first checkered flag of the season. Bailey settled for 2nd and Hodgkins backed up his earlier win with a 3rd place finish.

The Thunder 4 Mini 25 lap make-up feature had Albion’s Spencer Sweatt charge up from the back of the pack to pick up his 4th win of the season, tops in the class. The race was marred by several cautions and was called official with 19 laps complete. Sweatt was joined in victory lane by Noah Haggett of Woolwich and point leader Michael Golding of Pownal. In the second race of the night for the Thunder 4’s Brunswick’s David Greenleaf drove his battered race car to his first career win. David Cook of Jay and Haggett took home the 2nd and 3rd place trophies.

The ServPro of Biddeford Saco Pro Stocks had a 40 lap feature on the card. The action was fast and furious up at the front of the pack as Richmond’s Cody Tribbett withstood constant pressure from veteran Kevin Douglass of Sidney. Never separated by more than a car length, Douglass looked high and low and tried nearly every trick in his arsenal, but couldn’t rattle the sophomore racer. Tribbett finally got some breathing room over the final three laps to nail down his 2nd win of the season. Douglass settled for 2nd. They were joined in victory lane by rookie James Barker of Jay, who made his first podium appearance.

The Cahill Tire 4-cylinder Pro division was once again dominated by West Gardiner’s Hayden Norris. He started deep in the field and picked his way to the lead by the midway point of the 25 lap feature. From there he cruised to his track-high 6th win of the season. Jefferson’s Ryan Hayes picked up 2nd place finish while defending champ Max Rowe of Turner was 3rd.

The show finished with a wild and crazy 100 lap enduro that rolled out 55 cars for the race. Several cautions slowed the action and thinned the field. In the end, Dylan Lancaster of Skowhegan had lapped the competition and won the race by nearly three laps.

Wiscasset Speedway returns to action with a Labor Day weekend doubleheader. Saturday night at 5 pm will feature Group 2 in action with the annual 75 lap Outlaw Mini Madness race, plus Strictly Streets, Late Model Sportsman, and Nelcar Legends. The Late Models will run their regular 40 lap feature as well as the annual Dash for Cash, a 20 lap feature for drivers that have not won a Late Model feature over the past three years. Pit gates will open at 1 pm, grandstand gate at 3 pm and racing action starts at 5 pm. In the Sunday show, it will be the annual Boss Hogg 150 Pro Stock race, named after former track owner and Hall of Fame driver Dave “Boss Hogg” St Clair. The race will attract many of the top teams in the region all vying for the $5000 winner’s take. Also in action will be the K&A Property Services Modifieds and the Wicked Good Vintage Racers. Pit gates will open at 9 am, grandstand gate at 12 noon, and racing action starts at 2 pm. Race day schedule and information can be found at www.wiscassetspeedway.com
