JOHN ZYCH CONTINUES NEMA STREAK AT WISCASSET
WISCASSET SPEEDWAY PRESS RELEASE 6/4/18
by Ken Minott

What happens when you put the fastest asphalt sprint cars in the world on Maine’s fastest track? You get a whole new level of speed. Track speed records were up for grabs once again as the lightning-fast NEMA Midgets & NEMA Lites converged on Wiscasset Speedway Saturday night for Ames True Value NEMA Night. Turning laps around the 3/8 mile track with speeds topping 100mph, the NEMA Midgets put on a show for the packed house. John Zych of Mendon, Mass has quickly turned Wiscasset Speedway into one of his favorite tracks. Starting mid-pack in the 30 lap spotlight feature, it took just one lap for the former champ to rocket around the competition and into the lead. A mid-race restart against top rival Randy Cabral gave him his only true test in the race, but just a lap later he was back in charge and ran away with his 3rd straight win at Wiscasset Speedway. “We’ve been very fortunate at Wiscasset and have some success,” said Zych, “I love this place”. Cabral, who picked up a win at Wiscasset back in 2015, grabbed runner-up honors. Jim Chambers finished 3rd. While track records remained intact this time, the NEMA drivers got within just a few 10ths of a second, turning laps just over 13 seconds. In the 25 lap support feature for the NEMA Lites, Jim Chambers returned to victory lane to claim the winner’s trophy, he was joined by Zych and Jim Cataldo, however, post-race inspection and subsequent protest have left the results unofficial. NEMA returns to Wiscasset again in September. (more…)

Eddie MacDonald appeared poised for a top five finish in the American Canadian Tour’s Caron Fabrication 151 at Speedway 51 in Groveton, N.H. on Saturday, June 2 only to be caught in a lap 62 wreck. After a tremendous effort by the crew, Eddie Mac returned to the race without losing a lap to post a 12th place finish despite the severe damage.

On lap 62, two of the leaders tangled on the front stretch collecting the EXIT Realty/Hancock Electric Chevy in the melee causing extensive front end damage with the frustrated veteran racer saying, “ It happened right in front of me and I did not have any place to go, The hood was pushed up and I couldn’t even see out of the windshield and it looked pretty bad but Laura (LaChance) radioed that the car was not leaking so with some guidance I made it back to the pits and the crew went to work,”
