WMMP was happy to have many kids of all ages turn out for tonights' kids bike race sponsored by WEIDMANN ELECTRIC TECHNOLOGIES. Kids were seperated by four catagories; age 5 and under, 6 & 7 y/o, 8 & 9 y/o and 10 years old and older. In the 5 and under class we had Delaney Raymond come in third, JJ Goodbout second and Devon Snider take the win. In the 6 & 7 year old class we had Camden Burt take third, Storm Snider second and Lucas McKenzie the win. For the 8 & 9 year old class Tyler Guerriero came in third,Cameron Raymond second and Nate Walton the win. In the final class, the 10 year old and older group, Cameron Poulton took third, Quinten Ross second and Dillan Boynton the win. Each of the top three received a trophy and the winner from each group received a special bag with a $25 wal-mart card inside among other special prizes. We hope all of our kids had fun competing and look forward to next year's race.
Tonight was a make-up night for the NAPA Late Model division. Last weeks rainout prompted that. With plenty of racing ahead of us, we moved full steam ahead with racing, having our makeup race early in the evening. Having a good run was Travis Fadden, giving Stacy Cahoon and son Tyler Cahoon a run for their money. Travis held his own for the fifty lap feature and with his qualifier and semi-feature win last week, managed his second triple crown win for the season. Stacy Cahoon came in second and Tyler Cahoon finished third.
Late Models then had to start right back from the beginning with qualifiers again. A couple of cars had trouble during the first feature, like Dan Colby and Quinten Welch. Both came back fighting hard. Finishing third in their qualifiers were Brockton Davis, Tyler Alati and Tyler Cahoon. Second place finishes went to Stacy Cahoon, Brandon Talon and Tim Churchill. Qualifying wins went to Quinten Welch, Ben Lynch and Todd Aldrich. The Semi feature saw Stacy Cahoon take third place, Todd Aldrich second and Quinten Welch the win. The Second Late Model Feature was totally wild. Ben Lynch was running very well, putting distance between him and the rest of the field. However, as racing action has it, a couple of cautions brought some hard hitters close to the front. Working his way up was non-other than Quinten Welch who, after a restart, powered up the Team 78 car to pass on the outside on the back stretch around Ben Lynch. However, as they came out of turns three and four, Lynch looked like he had to check up to avoid contact with Welch which caused contact between he and another car to the rear and that was all it took. Lynch came right around at the beginning of the home stretch and on the restart, found himself to the rear. Starting alongside Welch now was Stacy Cahoon, last year's track champ. He too was running well tonight but when the green dropped, Welch commanded the field. For all the bad luck the Welch team seemed to be having early on, it quickly went away and Welch dominated the rest of the feature. Dan Colby found himself chasing down Cahoon and with only a couple of laps left in the feature, made the bold move to go to the outside and at the finish, managed to overtake the Cahoon car for a second place finish. Stacy Cahoon settled for third, Dan Colby took second after having serious car trouble early in the evening and Quinten Welch pulled off a fantastic Triple Crown win after having a bad start to a great evening of racing.
Tonight we saw six cars enter the Avery Sweeping Tiger Sportsman division. Finishing third in the qualifier was Jimmy Hebert, second went to Tucker Williams and Gerald Griswold the win. The feature race was exciting, with challenges for second between two drivers and fourth between two drivers right to the end. Brian Gosselin placed third, Jimmy Hebert second and Tucker Williams scored himself a win.
The Beacon Motel Strictly Streets had two qualifiers. Finishing third were Connor McDougal and Jody Sicard, second went to David Baron Sr. and Dan Bean, with wins going to Brandon Bourne and Alex Kelly. The feature race was one of the best I have seen in this division in a long time. These drivers poured their hearts our into their racing tonight and it showed. Right up to the end there was a battle for the lead with everyone wondering how it would end. Alex Kelly would have to settle for third tonight with Connor McDougal placing second and Brandon Bourne scored himself a win. Bourne worked hard to keep McDougal and Kelly at bay, with McDougal complimenting Bourne on a good, clean hard fought race.
The Woodsville Guaranty Savings Bank Strictly Stock Mini's saw Ernie Snider place third in the qualifier, Opie Thayer second and Steve Denio the win. Things changed though for the feature, with a complete change in the top three. Josh Dunn fought his way up for a third place finish. Kyle Willis lead the feature for some time, however did not have enough to keep Nick Pilotte from passing and taking away the lead. Willis had to settle for second tonight and Pilotte relished his feature win.
HK Powersports Kid Truck Division saw Lucas Wheeler place third, Logan Oliver got second and Cameron Ouellette won the qualifier. Moving on to the feature we saw Logan Oliver in victory lane with a third place finish. Finishing second was Chandler Potter and walking away with another win was Cameron Ouellette.
All posted results are not official unless the car and driver pass tech inspection after the feature race. WMMP would like to congratulate all the drivers tonight who found themselves in victory lane as well as all the kids who competed against one another tonight in the spirit of good sportsmanship. We hope to see everyone next week at WMMP for another exciting night of racing to begin promptly at 6;00 pm. Tonight was a reminder of the ever changing weather here in New Hampshire, so as a reminder, be prepared for cooler evenings by packing warm clothing in the car for you and the little ones in the event the temperature drops. We want our race fans comfortable while they enjoy the racing! Have a great week and we shall see you on August 7th for another night of racing at "Thunder in the Mountains", White Mountain Motorsports Park.
