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.
The Shuttle Connection Super Streets saw the return of Adam Delucca in his #6 and Jeremy Welch in his #88 as well as Jourdon Davis in his #67. Davis had attempted to debut his new Pontiac last week only to break a steering linkage ( see www.5prs.com for more ) and Delucca and Welch both suffered damage after an incident coming out of turn four last week. The feature tonight saw the #66 of Tim Churchill take the lead early on and set the pace for the field as the former track champion #14 Craig Roy took second and Adam Delucca finished third for the night. Churchill thanked his many sponsors including Autobody works, the crew from Tim's White Mtn. Garage and Dumont Construction.
The Beacon Resort and Motel Super Stock division saw more exciting action as the #76 of Jason Young tried to set the pace but fell back, as another former track champion made his way through the pack to take the lead and the win. The #63 of Tom Keith finally clutched the checkered flag for his first feature win this season. The #28 of David Baron finished second and Curtis Leeman took third with his #10 only to fail tech inspection, which placed the #19 of Dave Driscoll in third. Keith thanked his family and friends for their support as well as his many sponsors.
The Woodsville Guaranty Savings Bank Strictly Stock Mini division saw plenty of action during its feature, with former track champion Nick Pilotte losing control of his #14 on the back stretch and slamming into the wall hard, spinning out Ernie Snider in the #5 in the process. The red came out as the crowd stood to see if Nick Pilotte was alright after that bone jarring head-on into the wall. Cheers and claps were heard as Pilotte climbed from his severely damaged car. Luckily no one was hurt as his car was loaded onto a flatbed and the #5 car returned to racing. The #49 of Ben Irwin started in the pole position and seemed to be doing okay, but started to drop back as action got tough. The #49 spun out in turn 2 with the #5 of Ernie Snider sliding to a stop into the #49 and the Flying 0 of Al Hauver hitting the #5 of Ernie Snider. The restart saw the #99 car come from behind and finish third, not bad for Tucker Williams who celebrates a birthday this week. Second went to the #37 of Dustin Jackson and the #4 of Mike Richards Jr. proudly waved his first place trophy for his wife and children to see. Richards' thanked his sponsors for helping to get him to victory lane; J.Cavanaugh and Son Lawn and Order, Aaron's Repair Service, Sandy's Sign and Lettering and Richard's Motorsports.
The HK POWERSPORTS Kids Truck Division saw the #77 of Derek Stone doing well again this week, finishing out for the night in third. Alex Kelly in the #6 took second and the #47 of Gordon Day came from behind and pulled off a first place finish. Gordon thanked his dad for everything his does each and every week as well as Northeast Autobody, his main sponsor.
