TIGER SPORTSMAN TIRES ARE FREE AT SPEEDWAY 51 IN 2017

WHAT OTHER TRACKS IN THE NORTHEAST ARE GIVING FREE TIRES TO THEIR RACERS? None, and that’s why the 2017 season is looking super strong at the high banked, ¼ mile paved Speedway in Groveton, New Hampshire as the Tiger Sportsman will be the premiere division at the track in 2017. The Tiger Sportsman tried running used Late Model tires in 2016 at the tail end of the season. The drivers were ecstatic about the way their racecars handled and the extra speed they got out of their racers. The best part was that the tires were free. Race teams were allowed to choose from a mountain of tires collected by the track and were not charged for the tires. There was a branding fee and all that money went into the drivers point fund. In 2017 it will be the same deal for race teams, free tires and branding money goes directly to the point fund. The 2017 Tiger Sportsman champion is expected to receive a check for approximately $3,000. The North Country Ford late Models will be returning for a giant five race Series in 2017, a Series that will pay solid purses and offer a significant point fund to the top drivers. Interest is at a high level, and many of the teams that have been sitting on the sidelines for a couple of seasons are coming back to compete at Speedway 51. The North Country Ford Late Model Series fits many racers plans for this year as it features a schedule that is great for the low budget teams that can’t afford to run a full... read more

TWO NEW ENTERTAINING DIVISIONS TO PREMIERE AT SPEEDWAY 51 IN 2017

          Loads of exciting changes are happening at Speedway 51 in Groveton, New Hampshire in 2017, and two of the major changes include the additions of the all new Cyclone and Angel’s division to the tracks lineup.               The White Mountains Community College Cyclones will return to the track after many years absence as a regular division. The Cyclones were known as the Northeast Cyclones traveling group in 2016. The brainchild of Jean Leblanc and Doug Shannon has now become a track division. The Cyclones originally were started many years ago by Dick Therrien. This basically bone stock class with very limited changes except for safety, is a great division to get your feet wet in the sport of auto racing. Cyclone cars are very affordable to build and maintain, and most if not all parts can be found in most junkyards. The affordability is what attracts so many people to this type of racing as well as the fact that Cyclones do not race every week.               The Angels class will feed directly off the Cyclone division, as this Ladies class will be able to use the same cars on the same night as the Cyclones. This is great for family racing as they can share a car with each other and earn a few dollars. The Angels use to be a very exciting class to watch as drivers like the names of Jennie Dion, the Brown sisters, Traci Nelson and a host of others kept the crowd on the edge of their seat. Hopefully some of these historic names will return to racing in 2017.... read more
