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.
The Shuttle Connection Super Street division wins the "most cautions in one night" award as we watched caution after caution occur at a pace of one caution for every two laps completed for the first ten laps. With that frustrating beginning, things seemed to calm down for the rest of the race. The point leader suffered a serious malfunction to his 66 car with driver Tim Churchill showing his frustration. Churchill has been away for a couple of years and returned this year to lead the Shuttle Connection Super Street division in points. Another driver suffering a great deal of bad luck tonight was Jason Welch in his 21 car which showed considerable damage by the end of the feature. Racing under the lights proved good luck for Chandler Davis who succeeded in placing third for the night. Finishing second was last years' track champion Craig Roy in his #14 car. Taking the win was Adam Delucca with the #6 Chevy Monte Carlo. Delucca took time to recognize sponsors DMC Surveyors, West Alton Marina and NW Morrissett and sons for supporting his #6 Monte Carlo.
The Beacon Resort and Motel Strictly Stock division raced last tonight under the lights with a "out of car" driver introduction. Making his way through the pack and taking the lead was Elwin Sidney in the commanding #84, quickly setting the pace and putting distance between him and the rest of the pack. Clearly racing strong tonight, Sidney faced little competition until the very last few laps, as the #63 of Tom Keith made his way into second place and closed the gap between he and Sidney with every completed lap. David Baron Sr. and Steve Parker were left to fight over third place, with David Baron Sr. finishing the night the victor of that battle. Tom Keith finished second with the #63 and Elwin Sidney won the feature. Tom Keith's #63 car failed tech after the feature which ended up putting the 09 of Steve Parker in third and the 28 of David Baron in second behind the victor, Elwin Sidney.
The Woodsville Guaranty Savings Bank Strictly Stock Mini division saw the return of driver Nick Pilotte who totalled his #14 into the wall last week. With another car he returned to place third for the night. Coming in Second was the #37 of Dustin Jackson who took second away from Steve Welch who faught hard for a long time to maintain position, but got wide on one of the corners and drifted to the outside lane, losing position with each passing lap. Setting the pace and winning tonight's feature was the #99 of Tucker Williams yet again this season. Williams thanked his sponsors who include Eric's Auto Repair, Tatro Brothers Concrete and Excavation and Fred's Import Specialists.
With an a new driver added to the HK Powersports Kids Truck Division, a last minute decision was made to have an "A" feature and a "B" feature. During the first feature event Geoffrey Pickering took third with his #5 truck, Brandon Bourne took second with his #31 and Alexander Rooney won his first feature event in his #97 GMC pickup, thanking the Davis racing family and Black Brook Farm and Garden. Congrats Alexander on your first feature win. The second feature of the night saw a little more action than the first with the #6 of Alex Kelley placing third, the #64 of Christopher Pelkey finishing second and Gordon Day who, in a surprising move, drove his #47 truck from the rear up to fourth and in one fell swoop took over the lead and won his feature event. Gordon Day is no stranger to victory lane and he always takes the time to thank his dad for supporting his racing each and every week.
Next week Donnie and Teri Avery invite everyone to WMMP for the return of the NAPA triple 25's. The pit gate is scheduled to open at 2pm, the main gate at 4pm and racing is set to begin promptly at 6pm. WMMP is located on Rt.3 in Woodstock NH 2 miles south of the lights in N.Woodstock and 3 miles north of Exit 30 off I-93. See you there!
