North Woodstock, NH – Shiny cars, new paint, new tires, no dents, this can only mean it’s the beginning of the 2005 Season at White Mountain Motorsports Park. It was the Annual Car Show and Practice Day and the cars looked better than ever. This was truly one of the hardest field of cars to judge in the history of the park. The amount of work that has gone into this years cars can’t be measured by hours, for this you have to use the calander. Looking at any of the cars in the car show, you can see months of painstaking work.
The day began by welcoming a new divisional sponsor to White Mountain Motorsports Park. HK Powersports has come on board as the divisional sponsor for the Kids Trucks Division.
