|Cahoon, Sidney, Brown,
Keith, and LeBlanc
are 2014 Kings of the Mountain
|It was White Mountains
Community College Championship night at White Mountain
Motorsports Park in North Woodstock Saturday, where Stacy
Cahoon, Elwin Sidney III, Downtown Bobby Brown, Tiger Tom Keith,
and Cody “The Kid” LeBlanc, all earned their spots in history as
King of the Mountain for 2014. Kaleb Rogers earned top honors in
the special event held for the Kids Truck division.
In the Napa Late Models, Stacy Cahoon entered the night holding a 24 point lead over Glen Martel and Mike Jurkowski. Racers Oren Remick, Jeremy Harclerode, and Ryan Olsen were drivers on the outside and looking in to earning a top five finish in 2014. In the heat races, Littleton’s Russ Clark and Olsen won their 12 lappers with everyone advancing to the semi-feature except for Martel, thus ending any hopes for a title bid for the Gilford, NH resident. In the semi-feature, Clark had the #02 dialed in and set himself up for a potential triple crown night by taking the win. Jurkowski finished second and Cahoon fourth giving Cahoon a 20 point cushion entering the feature. There were 16 late models in attendance and nothing was a given entering the final 50-lap feature.
Clark and Olsen brought the field to green, with Clark getting the early edge. Olsen was trying to earn his fourth feature win of the year an by lap 10, the 2013 rookie of the year held down the top spot. Cahoon had worked himself up into the top three from his seventh place starting position. Cahoon and Clark put on a great exhibition of side by side racing for the next 30 laps, while Olsen tried to run away and hide. Travis Fadden was on hand for the final racing event of 2014 and the North Haverhill resident showed just how good his car was by running in the outside groove and settling into the second spot by lap 40. Fadden was able to run down Olsen, however it was too late and the #61 had taken his fourth feature in 2014. Fadden, Cahoon, Quinney Welch, and Jeff Marshall completed the top five. In victory lane, a very happy Cahoon thanked everyone that had helped him earn his fifth track title.
In the White Mountains Community College Tiger/Sportsman division, Elwin Sidney III held a 12 point lead over 2013 champion Scott Coburn. There were just seven cars back after the previous week’s 13 car 75 lapper. Lucas Wheeler was currently in the third spot point wise and couldn’t move up or down by taking a green flag. Another battle had shaped up between rookie drivers James Capps III and Lisa Hodgdon for the fourth and fifth spots in the standings. In the heat race, Sidney carried the checkers and Coburn finished third to extend Sidney’s point advantage to 14 markers. All the #88 had to do was take a green flag in the 30 lap feature.
In the feature, Sidney put an exclamation mark on his rookie season. Hodgdon and Capps brought the field to green for the main event and as the cars crossed the start finish line, Sidney had his title in hand. By lap 10, the blue #88 was leading the field in search of win seven. By lap 20, the white #1 of Coburn took over the second spot and began to try and run down and catch the #88. Checkers flew for Sidney for the seventh time in 2014. Coburn, Hodgdon, David Baron Sr., and Lucas Wheeler completed the top five. In victory lane, Sidney spoke and thanked all who helped him earn the divisional title, in just his first season in the Tiger/Sportsman class.
In the Twisted Tea Dwarf Car division, their final event was a Monza style three 25 lap features. The first segment was lined up by point factor. Lincoln’s own “Downtown” Bobby Brown held a 13 point lead over Bethlehem’s Jeff Ainsworth at the start of the night. Racer Jason Wyman had a lock on the third spot but for Tommy Smithers, Mark Wigget, Jeremy Labrecque, and 2013 champion Toby Merchant, a night of racing would eventually decide their finishing spots for 2014.
Seventeen cars were on hand to run the triple 25’s and with the extra money and points on the line, the crowd at WMMP was in for a treat.
It didn’t take Brown long to make a statement in the first segment. Coming from his 12th place starting spot, Brown took the lead by lap 20, sailing under the checkers on lap 25. Ainsworth, Cody Wyman, Jim Wentworth and Paul Marsen completed the top five in segment one.
The field was inverted for their second segment. This time it was Mark Wigget and Tim Anderson showing the way early. By lap 20, Wigget had a rear view mirror full of Brown and Jason Wyman. At the stripe Brown had win #2 of the night, followed by Wyman, Wiggett, Dave Gyger, and Eric Boucher. After two events Brown 2 points, Ainsworth 11 points, Jason Wyman 12 points and Eric Boucher 13 points were the top four drivers heading into the third segment.
Segment three was the last race of the night. Tim Anderson and Paul Marsen brought the field to green for their third and final segment of the event. Jeff Ainsworth showed the muscle early by taking to the top spot by lap eight, with Marsen, Labrecque, Merchant, and Jason Wyman following closely. Checkers flew for Ainsworth, followed by Labrecque, Merchant, Wyman, and Gyger. That enabled Brown to take the nights event with a point total of eight. Second went to Ainsworth at 12, third to Jason Wyman 16, fourth overall to Merchant 17, and rounding out the top five was Labrecque at 18 points. That gave the 2014 crown to the #27 of Brown. Brown had previously earned a Late Model title at WMMP. Brown thanked everyone that had a part it his 2014 season and was subsequently doused with several cans of silly spray by pit crew and family members.
In the Hill Heating Services Strictly Stocks, “Tiger” Tom Keith owned a 49 point lead over brother Jody and Shane Sicard before the final night of racing. Jody Sicard was not in attendance at the speedway, leaving the #4 of Shane Sicard as the only person that had an outside shot at catching Keith. In the heat races, Michael Dennis and Gordon Day won their races. Sicard finished third and Keith fourth basically leaving Keith with only needing to be on the track for the waiving of the green flag. Everyone present knew that Tom Keith’s #63 would not just ride out the final feature in 2014. The green flag flew giving Keith the 2014 title, however by lap five Keith was in the second spot and hounding his grandson for the top spot in the feature. The duo swapped the lead back and forth a few times, before Keith took off for win number seven of the season. Dennis, Sicard, Amanda Wheeler, and Michael Lloyd completed the top five. Keith thanked his crew and supporters for his wonderful 2014 season. This was championship number three for the North Haverhill resident. Keith stated that plans might be different in the future, looking to help out his grandson a little more and possibly a return to the pavement every once in a while.
The Woodsville Guaranty Savings Bank Strictly Mini division saw Gorham younster Cody LeBlanc in search of his first ever championship. LeBlanc held a 21 point lead over Woodsville’s Jeremy Wyman heading into the night with racers Colby Bourgeios, Michael Richards Jr., Desirae Sicard, and Larry Holmes all battling to finish better in the standings. Sixteen Minis were on hand, so the racing was going to be hot and heavy to battle for the top five spots in the standings.
Checkers flew for Scott Corey and Larry Holmes in the heat events setting the stage for the final 20 laps of 2014. Debra Holmes and Donald Judd Jr brought the field to green. The minis had a few yellow flags in the early going to keep things very interesting. Larry Holmes and Michael Richards Jr showed the way early. Working his way to the front was the #23 of Wyman. Yellow flew for the final time on lap 16 showing Wyman holding down the top spot and the #7 of Cody LeBlanc in the sixth spot. Green flew for the final time with Wyman earning win number five in 2014. Richards, LeBlanc, the #04 of Loren Smith, and Nick Pilotte completed the top five. That enabled LeBlanc to take home the 2014 title. A very relieved LeBlanc thanked everyone that helped him along the way in 2014. Fourteen straight top fives, with the last eight features all in the top three played a big part in earning the divisional title.
The Dad’s 4 By Tool & Supply Kids Truck Division had a three 10-lap features for their final racing event and the prizes that were given out were all arranged by Strictly Mini driver, 15 year old Colby Bourgeios. Bourgeios was able to get all of the drivers, tickets to the truck race that was held at Loudon on September 20th. The St Johnsbury youngster also got gift cards to Sears for all of the competitors along with trophies that were made at his school.
Segment #1 saw Kaleb Rogers take the top spot followed by Colin Cornell and Anthony Tompkins. Segment #2 had the field inverted. This time it was the #88 of Nate Walton sailing under the checkers first followed by Tompkins and Cheryl Joyce. In the Third Segment, Evan Amour held off the hard charging Kaleb Rogers to earn the checkers. Rogers and Cornell followed Amour to the stripe in the final race for the Kid’s trucks. All of the trucks were invited into victory lane as every racer received their trophy from Bourgeios. The third place finishing spot overall went to Cornell with 12 points. The top spot had Rogers and Tompkins tied at nine points each. The deciding factor for the overall winner was based on their finish in segment three which saw Rogers finish second and Tompkins fourth. A great event and a great time was had by all of the drivers getting recognized in victory lane.
|Fadden, Coburn, Sidney, Merchant, and Belanger stake claim to 2013 White Mountain Motorsports Park Championship Banners|
|It was championship night at
White Mountain Motorsports Park in North Woodstock Saturday,
where Travis Fadden, Scott Coburn, Elwin Sidney III, Toby
Merchant, and Ben Belanger were crowned as divisional champions
for 2013. Feature wins on the evening belonged to Derrick
O’Donnell, George May, Lucas Wheeler, Nick Pilotte, Andy Hill,
and Michael Dennis.
The Napa Late Models had a two horse battle on the line between Travis Fadden and the #21 of Oren Remick. The Late Model field had 21 drivers take the green flag for their fifty lap main event. Fadden had a big enough point lead that a finish of 18th or better was all the North Haverhill resident needed. Groveton’s Mike Kenison brought the field to green. Kenison and Lincoln NH’s Timmy Churchill showed the way early. There was plenty of side by side racing. O’Donnell, Quinney Welch, and Luke Shannon moved up several spots from deep in the field. Checkers flew for O’Donnell with Churchill, Kenison, Welch, and Shannon completed the top five. Kenison, Todd Aldrich, and Tyler Cahoon captured heat wins, with Remick taking the semi-feature. Fadden took home an eighth place finish in the feature and that was good enough for the track title. The third generation driver had a very strong season accumulating eleven top five finishes.
The White Mountains Community College Tiger Sportsman had their champion crowned prior to the night’s racing. Barre, Vermont’s Scott Coburn had a 63 point advantage over George May. Only a maximum of sixty points can be earned in one event, so the hard working Coburn was all smiles prior to the racing. Coburn had six feature wins, a figure that was matched by the #16 of George May. Jason Fallman and Richie Lafond brought the field to green and by lap 10, David Baron Sr. was leading and trying to hold off May who was working on the outside and Coburn on the inside. The three drivers put on a great show with Baron holding off the division’s top drivers. Contact got Baron spinning around and caution flew before the final lap, setting up a green-white-checkers finish. May nipped Coburn at the line with Baron, Lafond, and Fallman rounding out the top five. May won the qualifying event. A very happy and thankful Coburn celebrated in victory lane with his pit crew and family.
The Kingdom Trailer Strictly Stocks saw Elwin Sidney III holding a slim six point lead over Tiger Tom Keith at the start of the night. The division had as many as 18 cars at one point through mid-season. Down the stretch there were 10-12 regulars and all had to lay claim to a good finishes in order to maintain or move up in the point standings. The 25 lap main event was not short of excitement as five different yellows flew during the racing action. On lap eight, Keith’s bid for a title came up short during a hard crash on the back stretch that claimed the radiator. Sidney experienced a lot of damage to the right front suspension. However, when the dust settled, the #21 of Lucas Wheeler carried the checkers. Lloyd, Sidney, Chandler Potter, and Gordon Day all had top five runs. In victory lane, Sidney thanked everyone that was a part of helping him to his second title in the last three years.
The Twisted Tea Dwarf Cars had seven drivers that were still in contention for the season’s top honors. Toby Merchant had a ten point lead entering the night’s action and he would need all of that to hold off the contending racers. Some early cautions and skirmishes ended title hopes for Paul Marsan, Jeff Ainsworth, and Bobby Brown. Dave Gyger and Dennis O’Brien got the early jump. By the mid-point, the #8 of Andy Hill reached the lead pack and worked hard on the outside to sneak past Gyger for the top spot. At the finish Hill had his second feature win of 2013. Gyger, O’Brien, Merchant, and Jason Wyman were the top five finishers. The soft spoken Merchant was very humbled in victory lane, thanking all of his sponsors and family members that helped out in 2013.
The Woodsville Guaranty Savings Bank Strictly Minis had 18 racers on hand for their final show of the year. Whitefield’s Ben Belanger had distanced himself from the field with consistency all season long. Belanger made a statement in qualifying by earning the win. Scott Corey took the second heat race. The minis were flawless as both Belanger and Nick Pilotte were on the outside and making their way to the front. Belanger got past Dustin Jackson on lap 10 and after a check-up with lapped traffic, Pilotte had the top spot with Belanger in the second position. Checkers flew for Pilotte in his newly built race car, Belanger went second, with Jackson, Jeremy Wyman and Corey in the top five. A large contingent of family members joined in the celebration on the front stretch that included a pair of burnouts.
The Dad’s 4 By Tool & Supply Kids Truck division went out for one last run of the season. The division has grown and seen as many as ten drivers try their skills on the high banks. At the start of the feature, Will Mitchell and Cheryl Joyce were unable to make the call for the event. Colin Cornell and Anthony Tompkins were on the front row under green. The 15 lap feature had a pair yellow flags and when the dust settled, Michael Dennis won his sixth feature of the year. Evan Amour finished runner-up, with Kaleb Rogers, Tompkins, and Cornell all making the top five. Tompkins carried checkers in the heat race.

|Stacy Cahoon, Griswold, Potter, & Hodgdon capture 2012 WMMP Championships|
|The chance to capture a track
title in 2012 was on the line for all four of the racing
divisions on New England Security Championship night at White
Mountain Motorsports Park In North Woodstock Saturday.
The checkered flag flew for the final time in 2012 and Stacy Cahoon, Gerald Griswold, Chandler Potter, and Lisa Hodgdon have etched their names into the record books as divisional champions.
The Shuttle Connection Late Models had an interesting twist thrown into the final event for the year, with five drivers having a legitimate shot at capturing a title. Point leader Quinney Welch had a 15 point edge over his nearest contender. Welch opted to go to Loudon to try his hand at the big race track and then return in time to run the feature, literally sacrificing his 15 point lead. The four contenders all did what they had to do and that was to try and accumulate as many points in the heat and possibly the semi-feature. All four drivers did just that, setting the stage for the final 50 lap event for 2012. Going in, Welch and Davis were dead locked at 757 points, Cahoon was next at 756 markers, with both Travis Fadden 746 and Oren Remick 737 remaining in contention. In order for Welch to win, he had to do it coming from the back of the regulars and in a car (borrowed Tim Churchill’s LMS) he had very little seat time in. The feature had more ups and downs then an old wooden roller coaster. The long shot Remick could only do what he could and on lap18 he had taken over the lead from Jeremy Harclerode. A great side by side battle was shaping up in the form of Fadden in third and Davis on the outside in fourth. Caution flew on lap 21 for a spin putting a whole new light into the picture. Stacy Cahoon was now on the back bumper of Fadden restarting in the fifth spot and Tyler Cahoon in the seventh position. The race went back to green and the inside lane was the quicker lane shuffling around the top five racers. The laps continued to wind down with Remick leading the way, Fadden was now in a war for the runner-up spot with Stacy Cahoon. Son Tyler Cahoon was in the fourth spot and Davis was leaving it all on the speedway on the outside of Tyler Cahoon in fifth. Welch was fighting for all he could inside the top ten. However, the previous two time champion had to settle for a seventh place run not getting the speed in the outside lane needed to move forward.On lap 43 Davis needed to try and make something happen for himself. Tyler Cahoon opened the door briefly coming out of turn four and Davis took the chance he had. Contact was made by the two front runners cutting down the right front of Davis ending his chance at the title shot. Caution flew allowing Davis to get to the pits for repairs. On the final green flag, the top flight division saw Remick take his second feature in 2012, the young gun Fadden held on for second place, Stacy Cahoon third, Todd Aldrich fourth, and Harclerode fifth. Remick and Harclerode won their heat races and Harclerode gave himself a shot at the triple crown by winning the semi-feature. The feature finish allowed veteran Stacy Cahoon of St Johnsbury to take the season title. Cahoon told the large crowd in attendance that it was the furthest thing on his mind when the night began and thanked everyone that had helped him to reach the championship.
The Avery Sweeping Tigers saw veteran late model driver Eric Williams put on an absolute clinic on running a tiger car in the outside groove by capturing the 30 lap feature and heat races. In the feature, Huntington took the lead on lap one and held onto it until lap 24 when Williams completed his journey from his back of the field starting spot. Title chasers George May and Gerald Griswold finished third and fourth respectively and newcomer Brian Delphia finished fifth. Griswold took hold of the season championship winning four features and accumulating an amazing nine top three finishes.
The Beacon Resort Strictly Stocks had three drivers with a shot at a title entering the nights’ competition. However, for point leader Chandler Potter it appeared that his season had come to an abrupt halt when the power plant in his racer expired during practice. Enter 2011 champion Elwin Sidney III. Sidney had a very good chance to end the 2012 season with a solid top five year in points. Instead, Sidney graciously stepped out of his car and gave the youngster Potter a chance to hold onto his possibility of a championship. In race heat competition, Cody LeBlanc and Lucas Wheeler carried the checkers setting up the 25 lap three car shootout. Potter had a six point edge over Sicard, and eight points over Wheeler. Gordon Day lead in the early going until a couple of cautions flags set up for the final shoot-out. Wheeler was driving a hot rod all night long looking for his third win in 2012 and pulled away from the field. Potter had worked his borrowed ride up into second spot with Sicard hot on his heals. Checkers flew for Wheeler, with Potter, Sicard, Brandon Allbee, and Tom Keith finishing in the top five. Potter was awarded the title in a very emotional victory lane. Potter was taken back by the gesture given to him on the night stating only at WMMP would fellow racers do something special like giving up their race car for someone else.
In the Woodsville Guarantee Savings Bank feature, Lisa Hodgdon, Dave Driscoll, and Jason Fallmon had their sights set on a divisional title. On lap one it was quickly extinguished for both Driscoll and Fallmon when their cars had contact and each car received a cut tire. Both had to pit under green flag conditions, putting the title contenders down several laps. Benny Meunier had the early lead and took youngster Nick Willis and Michael Richards Jr. with him to the front of the field. Oxford Plains Speedway Wednesday night regular, Jamie Heath, came to the Park for some racing fun and motored up through the field on the outside. By lap 14 Heath was in control and pulling away. Checkers flew for Heath with Richards, Meunier, Willis and Desirae Sicard rounding out the top five. Heat wins went to Desirae Sicard and Richards. The feature finish gave driver Lisa Hodgdon her very first title in a race car. Hodgdon thanked all of her sponsors, friends, and family for giving her a chance to race.
The Lil Ceaser’s Pizza Kids Truck division saw Brandon Croteau win feature race number seven in 2012 followed closely by Amanda Wheeler, Michael Dennis, and Anthony Tompkins. Croteau captured the eight lap qualifying race. The PASS Super Late Models were on hand for their 150 lap feature race. When the dust settled, the #35 of Derek Ramstrom took home the victory, with the #17 Travis Benjamin, #10 Scott Dragon, #4 Ben Rowe and the #54 of Johnny Clark completing the top five.
