READY!! SET!! GO!! ALL SYSTEMS ARE GO FOR WINTER BLAST 100 POST TIME 2PM AT SPEEDWAY 51 “All systems are a go!’ stated speedway 51 powered by the Autosaver Group promoter Dick Therrien. Owner Joey Laquerre and myself have made the final decision that we are running the Winter Blast 100 on Saturday, January 19th at 2pm. “We have contacted all the local, regional and national weather services and according to those we checked, all stated that we will not see much if any snow until Saturday evening, we have based or decisions on their professional opinions and we are not turning back”, Therrien emphatically reported. “The track is beautiful and perfectly snow covered. The parking lot and pits are all plowed, and the final touches are being completed on the bleachers. It is going to be an incredible event. With over sixty vehicles pre-registered, and race vehicles coming from every state in New England, plus New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Quebec we are going to have a full house.” “Our sponsors, White Mountains Community College, Mom’s North Country Powersports, Batch’s Kwik Stop, Optical Expressions, Berlin, Vermont, Around the Clock Auto Repair, North Country Family Restaurant and NEK Trophies are some excited about the race.

DEAD LINE DATE CHANGE FOR LATE REGISTRATION DEAD LINE IS 2/1/19

DEAD LINE DATE CHANGE FOR LATE REGISTRATION DEAD LINE IS 2/1/19 As many of you know, Speedway 51 has only scheduled Late Models for the 2019 Fall Brawl. However, we have had numerous requests from several Late Model teams to run a few races during the season. We have tried to run Late Models regularly in the past, but unfortunately the numbers fluctuate to a point where it is not affordable to run these cars weekly. We are willing to try to run a five race Series with the following restrictions:   To make this work we must have a minimum of 15 ACT type Late Models registered for each event of the Series. You must pre-register for all five races in advance. Registration Fee is $250 or $50 per event if registered by February 1, 2019. This fee must be paid no later than February 1, 2019. We will make a decision as to run these races on February 10, 2019. If we do not have a minimum of 15 Late Model paid registrations, then the series will be cancelled and all registration money will be returned. Tire rule: You will be allowed to purchase 4 (4) tires for the first race and register 2 (2) used tires, and then 2 (2) new tires the next three races. The fifth race can be a 4 (4) tire buy. The cost for the new tires for the five race series will be 14 x $130 = $1,820. We offer good practice tires for free for you to use for spares if needed. There is a $20 per tire stamping fee... read more
EXCITEMENT CONTINUES TO GROW FOR  2019 WINTER BLAST 100

EXCITEMENT CONTINUES TO GROW FOR 2019 WINTER BLAST 100

With the 2019 Winter Blast 100 less than two weeks away, pre-entries are coming in at a record pace as we approach the Saturday, January 19th race date. The track has been recently inspected a six inch crusty base has formed with another five inches of fresh snow on top. It looks like the best track you could ask for will be waiting for the huge amount of entrants expected. Sponsorship this year is being brought to you in part by White Mountains Community College, Mom’s North Country Powersports, Batch’s Kwik Stop, Optical Expressions Berlin from Berlin, Vt. and the Best Dressed vehicle sponsor, North Country Family Restaurant. “I am extremely excited about Winter Blast 2019 as people have been registering and calling us about rules and other questions pertaining to the event”, stated Promoter, Dick Therrien. “Everyone that calls says they are bringing more than one car, some up to a half a dozen and that makes me a little nervous as we might have to park them on top of each other” laughed Therrien. Last year 103 vehicles lined up for the 100 lap grind, and this year appears to be one that will break last year’s record. So far entries have been received from every State in New England, plus New York. Many phoning with question are from Canada, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and North Carolina. The pits will open on Saturday morning at 9am, with Safety checks also starting at 9am. The grandstands will open at noon. All teams must provide a scorer for each car and ONLY SCORERS will be allowed in the scoring area.... read more

Long time volunteer, Jessica Pelletier will assume the leadership role in 2019. Pelletier doesn’t foresee any major changes to the program except adding a few more races to the schedule. The program has run very smoothly since its’ inception and no real major changes are expected. Four divisions including Rookie’s, Junior Mini Pro, Mini Pro, and Pro divisions will all be returning in 2019. The program Karting management team will include: LEAD PERSON – JESSICA PELLETIER FLAGMAN / ASSISTANT LEAD PERSON – CHRIS MEUNIER HEAD OF TECH – BUTCH MITCHELL HANDICAPPER / PIT STEWARD – JESSICA PELLETIER SCORERS – DAWN PELLETIER & CINDY MUNDELL ANNOUNCER – DYLAN PALMER CORNER PERSONNEL – JEFF MELANSON PIT BOOTH MANAGER – JAMIE BOUTIN TRACK PHOTOGRAPHERS – ALAN PLUMMER... read more
