The weather was questionable early on with a couple of passing showers at White Mountain Motorsports Park. Clouds were slow to break but clearing skies prevailed and a full night of racing was enjoyed by all those in attendance tonight. Last week's two red flag events putting two cars into the pits brought concern for those returning tonight for another night of racing. Returning with the 73 car was Cody Bodwell after paying a visit to the trees behind the pits last week. The car looked good and won a qualifing event in the Late Model division. The 49 of Matt Anderson failed to return to the track this week after peeling back the entire right side of his car with a mishap coming off turn 4 landing him against the wall down along the home stretch. We hope to see the Matt return next week for the Late Model qualifier and feature.

The first night of racing at WMMP played host to the Pro All Star Series plus all five divisions of regular racing. The night was rocked with multiple caution flag events including two red flag accidents, both of which ended in the pits. The first of which was during the Late Model Feature when the 73 of Cody Bodwell was involved in a spinout coming out of turn two. This brought out the caution and it appeared that as Bodwell got back underway, the car shot up pit road, taking out the chain link fence on the right side of pit road as he flew past the end of the jersey barrier and straight into the pits. Bodwell continued straight into the pits into an area between two vehicles and through the perimeter fence seperating the pits from the river the runs behind the pit area. The car landed against the trees keeping it from landing in the river. The Bodwell was apparently not injured and the extent of damage to the car was unknown as of press time.

The 2008 race season is now officially behind us with the celebration of Thankgiving at the Beacon Resort with over 300 guests. The Banquet was a huge success with some of the best food that could be found. Broiled fish, baked chicken, baked ham and prime rib was just a sampling of the huge buffet laid out by the Clermont Family. Our thanks goes to Ed Clermont and his entire staff for making our Race Banquet so enjoyable. The evening was capped off with a live band playing classic rock with one of our own drivers at the drums. Jourdon Davis wowed the crowd with his skills at the drums for the ROCKN HOUSE band. They kept the crowd moving through the night to the delight of everyone there.

Saturdays at WMMP came to a climatic conclusion here with track champions being crowned tonight. It was exciting for each division as the drivers raced their way through each feature event. The NAPA Late Models saw a tight race between Stacey Cahoon, Quinten Welch and Dan Colby for the championship. Winning his qualifier and the Semi-feature was the #49 of Matt Anderson. The feature race went rather smoothly with Stacey Cahoon making his way from the rear through the pack to second. At about lap 39, Norm Andrews in the #33 car gave everyone quite a scare. He was running the outside going down the back stretch and seemed to run out of lane, running up the wall at full speed into the pits, coming to an abrupt stop by the barricade entering the pits. From this reporter's view it looked like he had struck the barricade which would have accounted for the abrupt stop. Stunned silence fell over the packed stands as the red flag dropped and emergency crews scrambled to the disabled #33 car. Genuine relief swept over the fans as I was able to finally announce that Norm Andrews was out of the car on his own and walked to the ambulance to be checked out by Golden Cross Ambulance. Once the track was cleared and racing resumed, we saw the #17 of Todd Aldrich finish third for the night, the #21 of Orin Remick came in second and the #60 of Dan Colby finished first.

With only two night of racing left, drivers prepared for a battle for the championship here tonight at White Mountain Motorsports park. Donnie and Teri Avery welcomed the Pro All Star Series this week with the D-J equipment 150. Three qualifiers brought 25 racers to the feature. In the first qualifier DJ Shaw came in third, Trevor Sanborn second and Ben Rowe first. In the second qualifier, Rich Eaton took third, Jeremy Davis second and Johnny Clark first. In the final qualifier, Mike Lavoie was third, Scott King second and Travis Kittleson first. During the feature race spectators saw teammates Ben Rowe and Trevor Sanborn battle for position early on back in fifth with Travis Kittleson, DJ Shaw and Johnny Clark set the pace. With very few cautions, action was swift as the lead cars began to lap the slower racers. It was not long before the #4 of Ben Rowe found himself sliding into third place where he was able to finish for the night. Not where he had hoped to be, he credited the Avery family for having a great track which he noted was one of his favorites. Maintaining his place in the top three was the #54 of Johnny Clark who pulled off a second place for the night. He credited his crew for getting the #54 car into victory lane and he too wished he had finished better but was happy with second. The surprise victor tonight was the #60 driven by DJ Shaw. The young Shaw did an awesome job here at WMMP, pulling off a first place win. Congrats to Shaw and his racing team for their victory.

For the sixth time this season we have had to cancel or have been rained out. With only two races left in the season, action will surely be hot next week for the return of the PASS for a 150 lap feature event, along with all five divisions. Attention needs to be made concerning our race for the 13th as we will open the pit gates at 1:00, the main gate at 2:00 and practice is scheduled to begin at 2:30. Post time will be at 5:00 so come early for an action packed night of racing.

Steven Legendre drove his #20 NAPA Late Model to victory Saturday night during a night of awesome racing. Setting the pace from the beginning though was the 87 of Jeremy Davis. He clearly was the car to beat tonight as the pack tried to make their way around the oval here at WMMP. Legendre was able to snatch the lead from Davis and maintained it until the finish. Legendre got his start here in the truck division and has moved into the Late Models and is making a name for himself. Coming in third tonight was the #60 driven by Dan Colby. Colby came into tonight's race third in points and finished third during the race. Having to settle for second place was the 87 of Jeremy Davis. Davis clearly had a good car tonight and made things tough for Legendre, but Legendre skillfully passed the #87 car and secured his place in victory lane.

Stacey Cahoon at the last possible moment snatched victory away from Dean Weber after a 50 lap feature here at WMMP. Dean Weber lead the race from the beginning and it looked as though this sixth place point contender was going to claim victory, giving the #30 racing team a huge shot in the arm towards the point race. With a couple of cautions, second place points leader Stacey Cahoon had made his way through the pack and was poised behind Weber on a restart. The point leader suffered a terrible blow late in the race as Quinten Welch smacked the wall on the homestretch taking his #78 car out for the night. As the last 10 laps played out, the crowd saw Cahoon go from the rear of Weber to the outside in an attempt to take the lead. Weber held his own as he maintained the groove on the inside of the track, forcing Cahoon to the outside. Coming out of turn four Cahoon took his #83 car just a little to the outside and poured on the juice, causing one of the most spectacular photo finishes I have ever seen.

Thunder in mountains was coming both from WMMP and mother nature as some unsettled weather threatened to dampen the spirits of race fans Saturday night. Race fans prevailed and the skies cleared for an excellent night of racing. With the return of the ACT for the completion of a multi-rain delayed race, fans packed the stands. To add to the excitement of the night, three heat races were held with the kids competing with two-wheeled racing machines. The divisions were determined by their ages; five years and younger, six to eight year olds and kids aged nine and older. The youngest racers were taken to the back stretch where they started their race and finished at victory lane. The six to eight year olds raced one complete lap and the nine year old and older kids raced two complete laps. Donnie and Terry Avery congratulate not only the winners of each heat but thank all the kids for competing and for having a good time. Trophies were awarded to those kids who finished in the top three in each heat.

WMMP finally gets in a night of racing here at "Thunder in the Mountains" with Randy Potter pulling off a feature win. Racing tonight was eventful to say the least, with many cautions throughout the night. The NAPA Late Models capped off the night with its 100 lap event. Randy Potter took to the track and raced his way from the back to take the lead by lap 40 and lead the rest of the night. Quinten Welch in the 78 car did not have the benefit of four fresh tires but still managed to pull off a second place finish, also coming from the back of the pack. Racing his heart out tonight to keep pace with the leaders was the 60 of Dan Colby. This third place finish will definitely help Colby who lagged behind in points. We look forward to next week's 150 lap ACT race which has been delayed twice now, or was it three times. Anyways, plan on attending next weeks' ACT feature event here at WMMP.
