North Woodstock, New Hampshire - A cool, late summer night provided race fans with door to door racing at White Mountain Motorsports Park in North Woodstock, New Hampshire. It was Championship Night for the Gimour Jeep Ford Dodge Super Streets. The HK Powersports Kids Trucks also ran their final race for the 2005 Season. The Dwarf Cars were also in town to run on the high banks of WMMP. When all the dust had settled, Rick Thompson Jr., Arnold Stygles, Jody Sicard, Sean Akers, and Steve Legendre all received the top honors in the Peabody and Smith Realty Winner Circle.
The first feature of the evening was the Woodsville Guaranty Savings Bank Strictly Miniís running a 20-lap feature. Sean Akers of North Woodstock, New Hampshire showed the entire field he meant business. Akers started in the front row and drove his way to victory never looking back. Willard Hedden, who led a couple of laps, stayed right on the heals of Akers to get his first visit to the Winnerís Circle finishing in second. Jefferson, New Hampshireís Nick Pilotte finished in third place also making his first trip to the Winnerís Circle in 2005. Points Leader Jason Welch finished in fourth and Josh Santy in fifth.
The Beacon Motel and Resort Strictly Streets rolled onto the track next for a heated battle in their 25-lap feature. Barton, Vermontís Jody Sicard made another trip to the Winnerís Circle by getting to the front of the pack and holding off hard charger Gary Griswold II of Bath, New Hampshire for the win. In the final laps of the feature Griswold was all over Sicard fighting for the top spot, looking to get the victory but settled for a second place finish. Pete Gilcris also came on strong battling hard for the third spot and joining Griswold and Sicard in the Winnerís Circle. Patrick Burt finished in fourth and Points Leader Jeff Marshall rounded out the top five.
The Dwarfs had a rough start to the night losing a couple of cars in a nasty accident out of turn one. Both drivers were all right but their cars will need some serious work. During their feature they treated fans to a great race with those mighty mini machines, 5/8 scale models of vintage cars from 1928 to 1948, running 15 laps. Next up on the card, the Napa Late Models. The Napa Late Models ran an action packed 35-lap feature. Rick Thompson Jr. of Newport, Vermont fought off a full field of competitors on the ľ mile oval at White Mountain Motorsports Park. Thompson started the feature in the middle of the pack and worked his way to the top and held on for the last couple of laps. Fountain Mountain of Barrington, New Hampshire also made a run for the checkers in the Late Model feature racing side by side with Thompson for a number of laps. North Haverhill, New Hampshireís Todd Aldrich had a good night running the final lap in third place. Tim Churchill was one of the quiet ones on the track, as everyone was watching the dogfight for the checkers, Churchill came up though the field and captured a fourth place finish. Points leader Stacy Cahoon added more points to his lead with a fifth place finish for the evening.
The last race before Intermission was the 2005 Season Finale for the HK Powersports Kidís Trucks Division. For their final race, all the trucks ran in a 25-lap feature that saw rookie driver, Steve Legendre add another victory to his young career.

Jared Martel was out front for awhile during the feature but finished in fourth and Benjamin Lynch rounded out the top five in their final race of 2005 Season.
The last race of the even was also the final race of the 2005 Season of the Gilmour Jeep Ford Dodge Super Streets. Brockton Davis went into the night only 20 points ahead of Craig Roy in the points standings. After the Qualifying Heats, Davis only need to finish in 8th place or better to take the championship.
