Remick Takes Triple Crown
at Leaf Peepers 100
N. Woodstock, NH - Monroe's Oren Remick was unstoppable at N. Woodstock, NH's White Mountain Motorsports Park (WMMP) on Saturday, August 31 as he completed a Triple Crown sweep in the Leaf Peepers 100. Remick took the lead from S. Barre, VT's Mike Bailey early in the 100-lap event for the Foley Oil & Propane Late Models and never let go on the way to his second feature win of the season. With victories in his heat and the semi-feature earlier in the evening, Remick recorded the second Triple Crown of the season at WMMP.

The event was shaken up at the drop of the green when an opening-lap accident took Stephen Donahue, Jerry Lesage, and Cooper Bouchard out of the running. When the race got going again, Moultonborough, NH's Matt Morrill whisked around polesitter Allie Menard for the early lead. Following the second caution on lap four for Jon Savage's spin, it was Bailey's turn to get the jump and take over the top spot.

However, Bailey's stay at the front didn't last much longer than Morrill's. Remick swiftly moved up from the fifth starting position and roared around Bailey for the lead on lap 11. Point leader Quinny Welch of Groveton wasn't far behind Remick as he passed Bailey for second on the 17th circuit. After Savage brought out another caution on lap 31, St. Johnsbury, VT's Stacy Cahoon got into the mix, going around the outside of Welch to snag the second position.

But try as they might for the next 60-plus laps, neither driver could find a way around Remick. The fourth and final caution for Morrill's spin with five laps to go gave both multi-time track champions one final crack at the win. Remick made the outside work, though, and sped off to the victory.

Welch ended up second while Bailey got around Cahoon on the final restart for his first podium finish of the season. Grant Folsom, Jim "Boomer" Morris, Christian Laflamme, Jeff Marshall, Morrill, and Scott Corey rounded out the top-10. Despite coming up short of the win on the track, Welch unofficially clinched his fifth straight "King of the Mountains" title.

Barton, VT's Shane Sicard also unofficially wrapped up a championship with his fourth straight victory and eighth of the year in the Wells River Chevrolet Flying Tigers. Plainfield, VT's Michael Potter and his nephew Matthew Potter of Marshfield, VT went back-and-forth for the lead early. The family duo started on the front row and swapped the lead four times over the first seven laps before a pair of quick cautions allowed Sicard to close in.

Sicard got around Michael Potter for the second spot following the caution on lap seven for an incident involving Amanda Wheeler and Ben Belanger. After the second caution two circuits later, Sicard left Matthew Potter in the dust as well, surviving one more yellow flag and cruising to the win.

Justin Eldridge finished second in a substitute role for Christian Laflamme while Matthew Potter finished third. Jody Sicard and Michael Potter completed the top-five.

It was Jackson Family Night in the Woodsville Guaranty Savings Bank Strictly Stock Mini's as son Dustin and dad Brett, both of Bethlehem, swept the top-two spots on the podium. Dustin came from 10th on the starting grid to take the lead from Brett, who had started on the pole, just before halfway in the 25-lap feature. The event's lone caution came two laps later for Scott Senecal's crash, and from there, Dustin Jackson pulled away for the win.

Brett finished second followed by hometown racer Jason Fallman in third. Littleton's Ryan Ware maintained the point lead with a fourth-place effort. Darren Newland, Adam Sicard, Nate Walton, Andrew Kachmarik, Jillian Baumgardner, and John Knight also earned top-10 finishes.

Waterford, VT's Andy Hill continued a dominating season in the 7-Eleven Dwarf Cars with his fifth victory of 2019. Hill put on a duel with early leader Jason Wyman in the middle stages of the 25-lap feature, swapping the lead multiple times before Hill gained the upper hand for good with six laps remaining to win the caution-free event.

Easton's Wyman took second followed by Kevin Wyman, Dave Gyger, AND Cody Wyman. Nearly half of the Dwarf Cars in attendance were unable to start the feature due to various accidents and mechanical issues.

Orford's Christopher Pierce got his first win of the year in the Dads 4 By Tool & Supply Kids Trucks. Pierce started the event sixth, but officially had the lead in just one lap thanks to a pair of multi-car accidents. That was all Pierce needed as he sailed to the victory followed by Luke Peters, Thomas Smithers VI, Owen Rogers, and Dominic Warren.

White Mountain Motorsports Park Championship Night is this Saturday, September 7 at 6:00pm. All five divisions are in action with the season-long champions crowned at their feature's end. The evening also includes the 75-lap Flying Tiger Triple Crown Series finale as well as the Dwarf Car make-up feature from June 17. Admission is just $12 for adults, $3 for kids ages 6-12, and $25 for a family of four (2 adults, 2 kids).

White Mountain Welcomes Fall
with Big Labor Day Saturday
N. Woodstock, NH - White Mountain Motorsports Park (WMMP) is getting back on track in a big way this Saturday, August 31. The Leaf Peepers 100 Labor Day Special celebrates the holiday weekend while paying ode to the coming autumn season with a packed Saturday night of New Hampshire short track racing.

This weekend's event comes after a two-week break for the 1/4-mile oval. The August 17 event was rained out while August 24 was a scheduled weekend off for the Oxford 250. WMMP is making up for the extended break this Saturday with six divisions of action plus the annual Kids Pit Tour for youngsters to see the cars and stars up close.

The Foley Oil & Propane Late Models are going long-distance with the 100-lap Leaf Peepers event. The top weekly racers and several invaders will duke it out in search of a Labor Day trophy for their mantle. It comes with just two point-counting events in the chase to be the 2019 "King of the Mountains".

Groveton's Quinny Welch has all but sewn up his fifth straight track championship and eighth overall. The veteran has five wins this year and holds an 84-point lead over St. Johnsbury, VT's Stacy Cahoon. But a victory on Saturday is anything but assured as competition at WMMP this year has been fierce.

Seven different drivers have visited Late Model Victory Lane this season, and racers such as Oren Remick, Scott Corey, and Jeff Marshall are itching to get back on top. Other top runners like Cahoon, Mike Bailey, and Stephen Donahue have surprisingly been shut out of the winner's circle so far this year and are eager to break the skid. A surprise winner such as Jon Savage or Matthew Morrill could also end up at the front when it's all said and done.

A full complement of WMMP racing divisions are joining the Late Models this Saturday. The Wells river Chevrolet Flying Tigers have been Shane Sicard's personal playground this season. The Barton, VT veteran has seven wins and holds a 93-point lead over Plainfield, VT's Michael Potter in pursuit of his second straight championship. However, racers such Jody Sicard and Amanda Wheeler have been strong in recent weeks and could spoil the party if only for one night.

The best championship duel at WMMP can be found in the Woodsville Guaranty Savings Bank Strictly Stock Mini's. Littleton's Ryan Ware has put up an impressive season with two wins and eight podium finishes. However, that has only netted him an 18-point lead over Bethlehem's Dustin Jackson. Defending champion Adam Sicard and rookie Darren Newland are also in contention with two races left.

Waterford, VT's Andy Hill has been the man to beat in the 7-Eleven Dwarf Cars with four wins in six events. He currently leads Norman Forest by 31 points and Dave Gyger by 35 points. But the Dwarf Cars have three events left this season thanks to a make-up feature on Championship Night, meaning a lot could still change in their ranks. The Dads 4 By Tool & Supply Kids Trucks are also on the card for Saturday with the young guns of WMMP doing battle once again.

Last, but not least, on Saturday's program are the Senior Tour Auto Racers (STAR). Both the STAR Sportsmen and Modifieds will have features to showcase the cars of yesteryear.

Action for the WMMP Leaf Peepers 100 begins at 6:30pm this Saturday, August 31. Admission for the card of six divisions plus the Kids Pit Tour is just $12 for adults, $3 for kids ages 6-12, and $25 for a family of four (2 adults, 2 kids). The pits open for weekly divisions at 1:30pm and the front gates open at 4:15pm. The Kids Pit Tour will be held from 5:30 to 6:00pm.
