Another stellar night of racing took place at Speedway 51 powered by the Autosaver Group this past Saturday night as Craig Bushey, Kevin Boutin, Greg Adams, Jesse Dunham, Chris Ouellette and Vanessa Brown Savage carried checkered flags on the night.
Craig Bushey made his first start of the season in the North Country Ford Late Models a good one as he overcame a great challenge from Brendan Moodie to secure the win. Moodie held on for second spot ahead of Jeff Marshall, Mike Giroux and Mike Kenison. Bushey also won the heat race.
Kevin Boutin dusted the field in the Perras Ace Hardware Tiger Sportsman feature as he raced away from Jason Kenison, cousin Ryan Boutin, Nick Gilcris and Bunker Hodgdon. Kevin Boutin also carried the heat checkers.
Greg Adams won a highly entertaining Caron Fabrication Street Stock main event as he took the lead after a caution involving Tom Merchant and Kasey Beattie, with Beattie ending up going off on the hook. Adams held off a solid challenge from Dean Switser Jr. to claim the victory. Allan Birch was DQ’d from the third spot thus giving that position up to Ryan Ware, followed by Ed Bowen and Tom Merchant. Birch did win the qualifying round.
The Claudette and Dean’s Place Daredevils saw Jesse Dunham come out on top after an entertaining battle with opening night winner Keegan Lamson. Makita Giroux, Hunter King and Laci Potter chased the lead pair to the finish. Dunham scored the victory in the lone qualifying round.
2017 White Mountains Community College Cyclone champion picked up where he left off last season as he battled by Shawn Hood on the outside and came home victorious. Hood held on for second ahead of Nick Miller, Nick Gilcris and Jon Savage. Ouellette also was the winner of his heat race.
Vanessa Brown Savage was undefeated last year in the Lady Angels and she kept her streak alive as she won both the feature and the qualifier over Nicole Ouellette.
