2016 Texas Roadhouse North East Mini Stock Tour presented by Twisted Tea

Bleak forecasts and gloomy skies surrounded the days leading up to the return of the North East Mini Stock Tour along with its sponsors Texas Roadhouse and Twisted Tea to the one third mile flat oval in Hermon, ME. The last race at Speedway 95 for the NEMST was held in May of 2009 the first year of the mini stock touring series which has since become one of the most recognized in New England.

 
That first day saw Justin Trombley take home the feature win, a driver that has had so many laps around the oval he could do it with his eyes closed. Fast forward to 2016. Trombley has decreased the number of tour races he competes in currently and the tour has drawn in the highest caliber of four cylinder competitors the region has to offer. Those competitors include Haywood Herriott and Zach Audet who both won their heat races during Sunday’s event, as well as 2 time champion Emerson Cayer and entering point leader Nick Maniatis.
