With impending strong and severe weather in the immediate forecast, "Thunder in the Mountains" will have to postpone to an even later date. The ACT race will be held on Saturday August 16th at 6:00pm with an alternate rain date of SUNDAY August 17th at 1:00pm. Donnie and Teri Avery look forward to seeing everyone next Saturday, August 9th. Lets pray for some clear skies for next Saturday's feature events.

Rain fell during the National Anthem here at WMMP causing quite a delay for the final feature event of the evening. Once the track dried out we brought out the NAPA Late Models for the lineup and start of the race. For the first 40 laps of the race the #7 of Ben Lynch dominated the field, Taking an early lead Lynch was able to distance himself from the rest of the pack. Norm Andrews had managed to pass the #57 of David Labreque but had his hands full trying to close the gap between he and Lynch. At about lap 44 the #57 of Labreque and the #17 of Todd Aldrich spun around at the beginning of turn #1 giving Andrews the break he needed. At the restart Andrews hammered down early and got the jump on Ben Lynch, taking the lead and denying Lynch a win tonight. The #83 of Stacy Cahoon captured third and Dan Colby in the 60 car managed a much needed second place for his team. We kid Norm by calling him the "Legend" here at WMMP, but he deserves every bit of praise for his handling of the #33 racing machine and the true sportmanship he demonstrates, giving credit to everyone else from his wife to the crew in the pits.

Occasional rain showers really put a damper on an evening of racing here at White Mountain Motorsports Park as we prepared for the NAPA Late Model Triple 25's. As another rain shower moved in during practicing, Donnie and Teri Avery had to make a hard decision, whether to cancel for the night or try and race and risk having one of our drivers get injured due to a sudden shower. The decision to cancel out of concern for our drivers was made and everyone is invited to return next week for a regular night of racing in all five division. Remember that on August 2nd we have ACT returning for a night of racing after they were rained out earlier this season.

Excellent weather prevailed and racing was exciting for all five divisions this week at White Mountain Motorsports Park. The NAPA Auto Parts 50 lap feature event saw the return of Russ Clark in the 02. Having a great night in his 83 car was Stacey Cahoon who managed to place third for the night. Oren Remick may have had his sights on the first place slot but had to settle for 2nd in his 21 car. Chris Bergeron, a new driver this year to WMMP, drove his 27 car to a checkered finished tonight. Bergeron took the lead early and kept the lead throughout the 50 laps. Chris thanked his many sponsors which included Gary's Claremont Tire, Wizard Technologies, Ray Morin and Family, Revered Painting, Livington Artic Cat and Main St. Exxon.

Drivers came ready to race after having a week off due to rain. Spectators saw some of the wildest action ever seen here at WMMP. The #20 of Steven Legendre won his qualifier and the Late Model Semi feature putting him into the position of a possible triple crown. From the beginning the #12 of Gary Griswold and #20 of Steven Legendre fought hard for position. Steven Legendre suffered a setback with a caution event taking place and the right side of the #20 lost much of its sheet metal. Legendre tried hard but was unable to ward off the former track champion of 2007 Quinten Welch who drove his #78 expertly around the inside of the #30 of Dean Weber and took over second. Another caution put Legendre and Welch side by side at the restart and the #78 quickly took the lead. Edge of your seat racing right to the end as the #30 of Dean Weber took third and the #20 of Steven Legendre settled for second. A well earned victory for the #78 of Quinten Welch of Lancaster NH drew cheers from the crowd as he thanked sponsors Mulleavey Electric, Robinson's Auto Repair, S & W Motorsports and Jeremy Hiltz Excavating.

Thunder returns to the mountains as the ACT was ready to rock and roll, only to be dealt a blow by Mother Nature. Threatening skies prevailed most of the day as practice got underway, with 45 Late Model cars preparing for 30 open slots. As the qualifing got underway, the HK POWERSPORTS Kids Truck division saw the successful return of Derek Stone in his #77 truck, taking the checkered flag after struggling for the past few weeks.

Threatening skies cleared and fair weather prevailed at last night's feature events here at White Mountain Motorsports Park. Five divisions of racing plus the return of the Senior Tour Auto Racers kept the fans entertained as DAVID SCOTT of Barrington NH and BOB BATEMAN of Greenville RI took the checkers in the Senior Tour feature event. David Scott drove his #5 '32 Ford Coupe and Bob Bateman in his 1978 Ford Pinto. All the drivers worked hard at putting on a good show here at WMMP and more information about the STAR tour can be found at www.seniortourautoracers.com.

David Avery once told me that he has learned over the years to listen to what his father tells him as he is usually correct. Last night was no exception. Donnie was right and the entire forecasting team for northern New England was wrong. Racing at White Mountain Motorsports Park began promptly at 5:00 with five divisions of racing plus the New England Classic Lites and the rain began promptly after the conclusion of our final feature event. Happy Father's Day to you Donnie and to all the fathers out there, you are all appreciated.

We all have been wondering if summer would ever arrive here at WHITE MOUNTAIN MOTORSPORTS PARK and I can tell you, it arrived here Saturday with a thirty degree difference in temperature from the day before. Sunshine and 90 plus degree weather greeted drivers and fans as they made their way to WMMP after being rained out last weekend.

The month of May only provided the northcountry with approximately 1/2 " of rain until Saturday. Mother Nature provided us with some much needed liquid sunshine which caused WMMP to cancel the day's events. We look forward to seeing everyone next weekend when the pit gate opens at 1:00, the main gate opens at 3:00 and racing begins promptly at 5:00. The long range forecast as of Monday looks promising so keep those fingers crossed.

A cool brisk breeze reminded race spectators that summer is still not quite here. As fans huddled together a wild night of racing was enjoyed by all. All five divisions raced alongside the Pro All Star Series which helped to cap off an excellent evening of family fun for everyone.

It was an exciting day for the White Mountain Motorsports Park family to see returning drivers arrive for our annual Mother's Day weekend car show. While walking through the pits and visiting with the drivers and their crews I realized there were several new drivers this year returning after being absent for a year or more. There were also many new drivers from the kids truck division on up.
