North Woodstock, New Hampshire Ė Another action packed night of auto racing came and went at White Mountain Motorsports Park in North Woodstock, New Hampshire this past Saturday night. Kirk Alexander, Randy Potter, Adam Delucca, Cody Bodwell, and Rubin Call all took turns in the Peabody and Smith Reality Winnerís Circle.
The True Value Modified Racing Series invaded White Mountain Motorsports Park for a 100-lap feature. Kirk Alexander of West Swanzey, New Hampshire made it win number 11 for the season by getting to the top of the field and not looking back. Dwight Jarvis, Bucky Demurs, Robert Polverari, and James Kuhn Jr. followed Alexander to the strip for second, third, forth, and fifth.
The Napa Late Models saw a new face in the Winnerís Circle this past Saturday Night. Randy Potter of Groveton, New Hampshire fought off a group of hard chargers all fighting for the top spot for his first win at WMMP for the 2005 season. On the last lap of the 35-lap feature Potter went a little too wide and it was looking like Barrington, New Hampshireís Fulton Mountain was going to capitalize on the error and get the win. As they approached the painted strip Randy Potter was able to gain enough ground to get the win by about a foot. Tyler Cahoon of St. Johnsbury, Vermont, who led a couple of laps early in the feature finished in third place. Late Model Points Leader Stacy Cahoon finished in fourth and Rich Thompson Jr. ended the night with a fifth place finish.
It was a 30-lap feature for the Gilmour Jeep Ford Dodge Super Streets. Adam Delucca of Laconia, New Hampshire got up to the top of the pack early in the race and held off the rest of the field for his first victory of the 2005 season. As the laps ticked away, Arnold Stygles was reeling in the leader hoping to get the win. On lap 30 Stygles had to settle for a second place finish as he was close to Delucca but not close enough. West Burkeís Howard Switser finished in third place. Bernie Lantagne ended the race with a fourth place finish and Doug Laleme in fifth.
The Beacon Motel and Resort Strictly Street race was a dogfight for second and third place. Rookie driver Cody Bodwell got to the led position right off and held on for the entire 25-lap feature. The battle for second was incredible. Strictly Street Points Leader, Jeff Marshall and Pete Gilcris, both of Groveton, New Hampshire fought for each lap. As the final laps happened, Gilcris was in second, then on the next lap, it was Marshall in second. This happened for last third of the race. On lap 25, it was Pete Gilcrisís turn for second place. Jeff Marshall finished in third, Jody Sicard in fourth, and Shane Sicard in fifth.
Concord, Vermontís Rubin Call was the victor this past Saturday Night in the Woodsville Guaranty Savings Bank Strictly Mini Division. It wasnít an easy run for Call as he had to get past a good portion of the field. As the dust settled it was Call with the win. Mike St. Onge finished in second. Rod Knudson of East Concord, Vermont made his first trip to the Winnerís Circle in 2005 with a third place finish in the feature. Opie Thayer and Dan Curren finished in fourth and fifth.
