It’s hard to believe but the 2019 racing season at Speedway 51 powered by the Autosaver Group in Groveton, New Hampshire is winding down and has less than a handful of races remaining.
One division that has shown so much improvement this year is the Claudette and Dean’s Place Daredevil Youth Racers. These kids have come on very strong as the season has progressed in 2019 and these youngsters continue to blossom. A few weekends back the Daredevils were allowed to compete with the Street Stocks and they put on a tremendous show for the fans. The leader of the group has proven to be young Kaiden Fisher in the #18 Ford Mustang. He has collected numerous wins and challenged for a top three finish in that special race. He was all over hotshoe Jamie Heath in the closing laps of the race before settling for a fine fourth place finish.
Two other young ladies have had awesome seasons as well. Mekaylah Bowen in the #12 Cavalier was right on the heels of Fisher in the point standings until a crash forced her to miss a race allowing Fisher to extend the point lead. Bowen has a pair of wins to her credit as well. Another contender is the #97, Cassi Leonard who has cracked the top three on a regular basis. Leonard has yet to win but she improves every time she turns a lap on the track. Several other Daredevils have had good seasons including the #7 of Jesse Laquerre who destroyed his ride in a devastating crash several weeks ago. Laquerre was a regular podium finisher and race winner before the wreck sidelined him. Brady Heath driving the 91JR. had a great season going as he also had some victories and several top three runs. Another young lady, the 55VT of Lacy Potter has stood on the podium a few times in 2019, as well as the #78 of Julian Birch. Several other youngsters have made appearances throughout the year and raced very well with the group.
The next appearance for the Daredevils will be on Saturday, September 7th at 6pm.
