Story by Chris Roy

Trent Goodrow, of Carver, MA.  is one of the young drivers this season, racing in the #31MA legend car. “What made me decide to run legends was the challenges that I would face. There are many great drivers in this division and the legend cars are one of the hardest cars to drive. That being said I knew I would learn a lot about car control and be a better driver.”

 

J&J’S YOLK & Co. is the new sponsor for the Granite State Legends Series.  “My favorite thing about running in the YOLK Legends Series is racing at NHMS. The track we run there is completely different then every other track I’ve raced on. The front stretch is completely flat then center of the corner we go up the banking of the big NASCAR track, we run down the banked backstretch into turns 3 and 4 onto a transition back onto the flat. It was definitely one of the hardest tracks to learn.”

Eddie MacDonald fought darkness and a wild field of drivers to post a seventh place finish in the American Canadian Tour Invitational at New Hampshire Motor Speedway on Saturday. In what can only be described as the most bizarre race ever staged at the Loudon, NH mile oval, the scheduled fifty lap event was mercilessly ended in darkness after completing just eighteen laps.

Eddie Mac posted the fourth fastest time in the morning practice and drew the 26thstarting position for the final race of the day at NHMS following the NASCAR trucks and Whelen modifieds. The Hancock Electric/EXIT Realty Chevy owned by Freddie Peterson won the event the last two Septembers and five championships overall with Eddie Mac confident another victory could be his.

Multiple accidents and long clean-up and line-up times prolonged the race for nearly two hours.
