Lights Shine Brightest for Champions on Final Race of the Regular Season

  Groveton, NH- The hard work of a grueling season culminated Saturday for six drivers and their crews as they were crowned Speedway 51 Track Champions. Defending champion Kasey Beattie (45) of St. Johnsbury can always be found with one of the biggest smiles at the racetrack, whether he’s behind the wheel or playing football with an empty water bottle in his race suit behind the bleachers. But the young wheelman trailed Garrett LaBounty (76) by 20 points with five races to go, that’s when he proceeded to win four of those final five races including the championship finale to retain his championship. LaBounty would finish second in the race and the championship after coming into the final weekend tied with Evan Hallstrom (1vt) who finished third.   Kasey was as excited as any of our champions to win his second championship with the exception of perhaps our Schweppes Street Stock Champion Bunker Hodgdon (83). The Hardwick, VT driver came into Saturday’s event 20 points ahead of Jarred Plumley (12) all while seeing his car flipped over smashed and crashed throughout a long season running two tracks full time. Saturday night would only add an exclamation point on the roller coaster adventure after the high peak of a second place finish in the first segment to the sudden drop as he was involved in a big accident in the second segment that sent him head on into one of the light poles in the infield. During a lengthy caution the 83 team scrambled with the help of no less then five different race teams to some how piece his... read more

Jared Plumley, Cody Smith and Peyton Lanphear are battling for top three supremacy. Kasey Beattie, Evan Hallstrom and Garrett Labounty have a tremendous battle brewing for the A.B.

Richie Veilleux and Jean Leblanc have an outside shot at the title, and Chris Ouellette has a five point advantage over Jason Kenison in the North East Cyclone class.               Don’t forget the teen admission pricing plan where all teenagers ages 13-16... read more

SPEEDWAY 51 ANNOUNCES MAJOR CHANGES FOR THE SIGN DEPOT TIGER DIVISION

                A significant change is coming to the Speedway 51; Sign Depot Tiger division on Saturday, September 3rd, a change that Track owner, Joey Laquerre feels will make this division much more appealing to drivers throughout the Northeast. It is no secret that the Tiger class has been struggling at Speedway 51, Thunder Road and WMMP. White Mountain made a bold change by combining the Tigers and the Strictly Stocks, and now have a solid twenty cars or more on a regular basis. The Speedway 51 mentor has come up with a plan to make his Tigers hopefully grow in numbers as well, and the idea seems to be well liked by all those whom have been informed about the big change.               “The cost of racing a Tiger has become extremely expensive in these last few years, stated Laquerre. This problem has sidelined so many teams. Our plan will cut the cost of racing one of these cars dramatically. Starting on Saturday, September 3rd, the Tigers will be racing on used American Racer Late Model tires. The best thing about this idea is that drivers will be able to get these used tires absolutely free! We will have used take-offs in stock, and teams can also get them from any source they want, including any ACT Tour, Thunder Road team, or from racers at other tracks that use the same brand and compounds. Several teams tested these tires last weekend and were ecstatic about the speed and stability of these tires. Several teams were running laps close to fourteen seconds, and with chassis adjustments, we... read more

We figure it’s in everyone’s best interest to take the weekend off. We are looking forward to the homestretch of our season when we return on September 3rd.”               September 3rd is the date for the return of the North Country Ford Late Model division which had been idle for a couple of weeks.

  Groveton, NH- A night a lot of race fans thought was a long time coming… the Cyclone class returned Saturday to Speedway 51.

Chris Ouellette (81) of Milan, NH put on a sterling performance winning his heat race and leading all 30 laps of the main event en route to the victory. Groveton, NH’s Jason Kenison (03) and Cole Kilby (66) went door to door and wheel to wheel for the final 6 laps for the runner up position with Lancaster, NH’s Kilby edging out Kenison by inches at the line. Matt Kopp (16) had an opportunity to restart on the outside of Ouellette with 10 laps to go following a hard wreck for Mike Sherburne (83) on the back stretch. the Bethlehem, NH driver hung with the leader for a few laps before sliding back on the outside and settling for fourth place.
