Threatening weather kept a bulk of the crowd away this week as racing action was hot with only one more week of points racing after tonight. Fans and drivers alike reported rain all around us but racing went on uninterupted this week. Three qualifiers were held in the NAPA Late Model division of 12 laps apiece. This first qualifier we saw Tom Smithers take third, Travis Fadden second and Bernie Langtagne first. The second qualifier we saw Jeremy Welch take third, Stacy Cahoon second and Dan Colby first. The third qualifier we had Todd Aldrich place third, Quinten Welch second and Orin Remick the win. The Semi feature event was ten laps in length and Todd Aldrich placed third, Travis Fadden second and Jeremy Welch the win. The fifty lap feature event was pretty rough with some visiting drivers here for the first or second time this year. There seemed to be quite a bit of bumping and nudging going on towards the midpack and the rear. This interupted the action as cautions flew. The point leaders made their way towards the front and with ten laps to go, Stacy Cahoon followed Quinten Welch around Dan Colby who was third and challenge Donnie Lashua for the lead. Quinten Welch took over the lead and with a caution again at lap 45, we saw Welch start on the pole and Cahoon on the inside, second row. As the final five laps played out, Dan Colby worked his way into victory lane with a third place finish. Stacy Cahoon settled for second as he just didn't have enough to challenge the leader and feature winner, Quinten Welch, who drove into victory lane proudly waving the checkered flag. With next week being the final points race, action should be awesome as these drivers battle it out for the championship.

The second qualifier we saw Oren Remick place third, Todd Aldrich second and Brockton Davis the win. The third qualifier saw Will Avery place third, Travis Fadden second and Stacy Cahoon the win. The ten lap consi saw Stacy Cahoon place third, Glenn Martel second and Brockton Davis the win. This set Davis up for the possibility of a triple crown for the night. Going into the fifty lap feature we saw Davis work his way up to fourth place and at about lap 25 he made his move on the leaders. Going to the outside he worked his way up continuing to pass and by lap 31 had captured the lead. The first caution of the night came out at lap 32 when new driver to the track spun out at turn 3 and Norm Andrews had to brake hard to avoid contact. The restart placed Davis at the pole and when the green flew the pedal went to the metal and Davis took the lead, setting a blistering pace. At lap 36 mayhem broke out as David LaBrecque spun out in front of point leader Quinten Welch who expertly avoided contact and drove out unscathed. Davis continued to lead the field from the restart and as the checkers flew, won himself the triple crown. Placing second was Glenn Martel and third went to Todd Aldrich.

Racing action was as hot as the weather here in Woodstock NH as great weather prevailed for the night. In the first of three qualifiers we saw Stacy Cahoon finish third, David LaBreque finish second and Brockton Davis take the win. The second qualifier saw Bernie Lantagne take third, Cody Bodwell place second and Todd Aldrich take the win. The third and final qualifier had Donnie Lashua in third, Oren Remick place second and Ben Lynch take the win. The semi feature saw Bernie Lantange place third, Oren Remick take second and Brockton Davis the win. This set Brockton up for a possible triple-crown win going into tonights' 50 lap feature. At the onset of the feature, Brockton Davis took over the lead and began to pull away from the pack. The feature saw a little action near the middle of the feature as Matt Anderson spun to the infield coming out of turn 2 and with no caution on the track, racing resumed. Anderson attempted to re-enter the race on the back stretch and with the field at racing pace, Anderson drove back onto the track and this action caused several drivers to take action to avoid collision. This cascaded into turn 3 and 4 with Travis Fadden and another driver getting into each other along the front stretch. All drivers managed to get back into the flow and action continued to lap 41 where David LaBreque spun around in the middle of turns 3 and 4. This brought out a caution and a restart. Leading for most of the night was Brockton Davis. Davis had actually lapped a few cars and there was quite a gap between he and second place Oren Remick. The restart saw Remick start alongside of Davis who, upon the dropping the green, just did not have enough to hold off Remick who took over the lead and the win. Placing third was Todd Aldrich, second went to Brockton Davis and Oren Remick went home with the win.

Tonight everyone has a little extra fun as we held four divisions of kids bike racing here at White Mountain Motorsports Park. First up was the five year old and younger. They started off at the beginning of the homestretch and only had to cross the finish line. Some intripid racers were not satisfied with that and continued on into turns one and two and down the back stretch. Quite amusing but the outcome was still the same. Coming in third was Lucas McKensie, second place went to Devin Snider and first place was won by Colby Jones.

On a night riddled with rain showers and delays, a full night of racing was held here at Thunder in the Mountains. Looking for his first triple crown tonight was Orin Remick who took his qualifier and the semi-feature. The N.A.P.A. Late Models managed to finished their race with only one caution right at the start. As the drivers began , taking an early lead, was Jeremy Davis. Davis set a blistering pace for the others to follow and without a caution to slow him down, the crowd saw Davis creep up on the rear of the pack. Lap after lap Davis would be passing another lead lap car. Fighting the pack and hoping for a caution was Orin Remick. Remick had been poised for a triple crown but had his hands full trying to keep pace with Jeremy Davis. Third place was clearly Chris Bergeron who was also having issues keeping pace with Davis while making his way around lapped cars. The unofficial results for tonights feature event was 5th going to Quinten Welch, 4th went to Donnie Lashua, 3rd was Chris Bergeron, 2nd went to Orin Remick and Jeremy Davis took the win.

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.

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.
