MOODIE, HODGDON AND HEATH PREVAIL AT SPEEDWAY 51 POWERED BY THE AUTOSAVER GROUP

Beautiful weather and hot racing was featured Saturday night at Speedway 51 powered by the Autosaver Group at the high banked ¼ oval in Groveton, New Hampshire, and winners on the night included Brendan Moodie, Bunker Hodgdon and Jamie Heath. The Perras Ace Hardware Tiger Sportsman highlighted the card and the field swelled dramatically from opening night. The best part of the night was the fact that all cars racing were quality piec4es of equipment and there were battles throughout the field all night long. Brendan Moodie picked up his second consecutive win by edging out Dwayne Lamphear and Craig Bushey. Moodie worked his way around Bushey with three laps remaining, and then slid up the track in turn three one lap later surrendering the runner-up spot to Dwayne Lamphear. Travis Calkins raced home 4th ahead of Brandon Lamphear. Moodie won the qualifying round. Bunker Hodgdon showed no mercy in the Caron Fabrication Street Stock feature event as he rebounded from last week’s poor finish, to carrying the checkered flag this week leading from start to finish. Dean Switser Jr. was reeling Hodgdon in at the end of the race but laps ran out and he settled for second. Jared Plumley, Brett Rowell and Kasey Beattie rounded out the top five. Hodgdon also won his heat race. Jamie Heath made the long haul down from Waterford, Maine and scored an impressive victory in the White Mountains Community College Cyclone division. A scrum at the start of the race sent the field scrambling and Heath picked the right hole and shot to the point, never to be challenged. Matt Mason... read more

SPEEDWAY 51 POWERED BY THE AUTOSAVER GROUP ANNOUCES TIRE CHANGE FOR LATE MODELS

                Speedway 51 powered by the Autosaver Group has announced that they will be changing the tire for their North Country Ford Late Model Series beginning on Saturday, June 3rd.               Track owner, Joey Laquerre stated “The Hoosier 9” tire that we opened the season with is a fantastic tire, and it was a very fast tire, but the drivers had numerous problems getting their cars adjusted to it. We feel that it is in best interest of competition that we return to the American Racer brand that our drivers are use to. We will make the switch for the June 3rd event. We want to thank Jack from Northern Race Tires of Ossipee, New Hampshire for all his technical support he provided us with the Hoosier tire.”               The American Racer brand tires will be available right away, and a special practice will be set up for the teams to re-set their racecars before the next race.
