Rain started the afternoon off on a sour note, wetting the track and threatening to delay the start of tonight's action. The sun prevailed and the track dried and the rubber met the asphalt for this year's A.C.T. 150 LAP feature event. Starting on the pole was John Donahue out of Granitville Vt. Donahue took advantage of his position and raced hard, nearly lapping most of the pack. There were several cautions through tonights race, however Donahue came back strong each time and set the pace for the others to follow. Donahue took the checkers with Brent Dragon following a close second and Nicholas Sweet coming in third. Rounding out the top five was Eric Williams and Ben Rowe.

Dedicating his win to the memory of his two grandfathers' this Father's Day Weekend, Travis Fadden not only won for the first time as a N.A.P.A.late model driver but won a triple crown. Travis Fadden had an exceptional night, winning his qualifier and then the Semi-feature. Coming out for the feature he was also pitted against ACT drivers Randy Potter and Dwayne Lampher, both well qualified and experienced drivers here at WMMP. Travis did a good job early on taking over the lead somewhere mid-race. A couple of minor caution events created a couple of restarts and allowed former track champion Stacy Cahoon to start alongside Fadden. Fadden, who had developed a bit of lead on the 2nd and 3rd place cars now had his hands full with Cahoon to his right and Bernie Lantange to his rear. Keeping his composure and having the ability to draw from, Fadden raced hard at the dropping of the green and raced hard and clean against Cahoon. Cahoon faught hard and clearly made Fadden work lap after lap, waiting patiently for Travis to faulter and fall out of pace. Fadden kept pace and held his own against this veteran driver. At the dropping of the white flag, drivers made their way into the final lap. Another veteran driver and former track champion Quinten Welch ended up in the infield after spinning out coming out of turn four. Welch was able to get himself underway and the race ended with Fadden coming out the victor. Completing the top five was Bernie Lantange in second, Stacy Cahoon in third, Jeremy Davis fourth and Dwayne Lampher fifth.

With the threat of rain looming, track officials scrambled to get the feature races off tonight at White Mountain Motorsports Park. The NAPA AUTO PARTS fifty lap feature was under the gun with intermittant sprinkles falling here and there. Looking for a triple crown tonight was the Fadden Racing Team. Travis took his qualifier and the semi feature and was leading for over thirty laps at the feature. Fighting his way from the middle of the pack to take over the lead was Quinten Welch. Welch had his hands full making it past Brett Clairmont who was in the top five along with Bernie Lantange. Finishing third was Orin Remick and Travis Fadden had to settle for second. Quinten Welch congratulated the other drivers for a awesome race with hard faught battles with no cautions. Welch commented on last weeks' early caution that saw many drivers' cars take a beating and had to perform extensive repairs in order to be race ready for this week.

For the second time this race season, we had a triple crown winner in the NAPA Late Model division. The fifty lap feature got off to a rocky start with only one lap complete, the 92 car of Will Avery got loose going down the homestretch and will a little help, came sideways in front of the rest of the pack causing a huge, multiple car collision right at the entrance to turn one. Several cars had to be hooked to the pits and many more had heavy body damage. Enjoying the safety of the front was the 09 of Jeremy Davis. Davis won his qualifier and the semi-feature and was poised for a feature win. With a restart things got underway again, with the 09 taking an early lead and being chased by the 7 car of Ben Lynch. Lynch was also running strong tonight keeping pace with the Davis car lap for lap, however that was not to be the case when the checkers flew. With Quinten Welch getting caught up in a second caution for the night at the beginning to turn one yet again, we saw returning driver Tyler Cahoon in the 38 car poised for some moving and shaking. Moving is what the crowd saw as Cahoon made his way from the back to the middle and on to challenge Ben Lynch for second place. As the laps passed by and Davis seemed untouchable in the lead, Cahoon soon passed Lynch and took over second and began to gain ground on the Davis car who was involved in lap traffic at this point in the race. With Five laps to go we actually saw Cahoon and Lynch chasing down the leader as he faught his way through lap traffic. When the checkers fell though, Davis came out on top and Cahoon finished second and Ben Lynch took third. Rounding out the top five would be Todd Aldrich in the 17 car who notably made a strong run at the end and the #3 of Bernie Lantange.

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.
