DOUBLE POINTS ON THE LINE THIS SATURDAY AT SPEEDWAY 51 POWERED BY THE AUTOSAVER GROUP

Excitement is building as racing action resumes this Saturday night at Speedway 51 powered by the Autosaver Group in Groveton, New Hampshire. Twisted Tea will present all the racing action which will include a Perras Ace Hardware Tiger Sportsman Special, Caron Fabrication Street Stocks, A.B. Excavating Daredevils, White Mountains Community College Cyclones and the Twisted Tea Lady Angels. Over twenty different cars have competed in the Tiger Sportsman class in 2017 and a good field is expected for Saturday night’s event. Danville’s, Derek Calkins snapped Brendan Moodie’s undefeated streak last time out and should be a threat again this week. The Streets Stocks have a great battle going as Bunker Hodgdon has a slim lead over several drivers, and with double points on the line, the standings could easily get turned upside down. The Cyclones class is also very close as Chris Ouellette leads the way. Post time for this Saturday night is 6pm, and Kiddee Racecar Rides will take place at intermission, and the Twisted Tea Girls will invade the Twisted Tea Garden as an added attraction.

EXPLANATION OF HANDICAPPING SYSTEM 2017 HANDICAP PROCEDURES

ALL RACERS PLEASE READ There has been much confusion over handicapping. Here is how it works. In every class except the Late Models, I take the drivers last three races, add up their total points over their three races, and divide by three to give them their handicap percentage. If you miss a race, you receive 65 handicapping points for each race you miss. The more points you gain, the higher your handicap. Late Models have a different system since they only have five point counting races. We take their total points and divide by number of races thus giving them their handicap percentage. They also are handicapped 65 points if they miss a race. Each driver that races an event receives 30 bonus points per race, as an incentive to race all the races. I have added in all bonus points as of July 8, 2017 point standings and will continue to do this over the next two races. EXPLANATION OF HANDICAPPING SYSTEM 2017 HANDICAP PROCEDURES ALL DIVISIONS EXCEPT LATE MODELS  OPENING NIGHT DRAW FOR POSITIONS WINNER OF 1ST HEAT OF EACH DIVISION DRAWS FOR INVERSION NUMBER. CHIPS HAVE NUMBERS 1-10. THE NUMBER DRAWN IS THE NUMBER OF CARS TO BE INVERTED IN THE STARTING LINEUP. WE WILL USE A THREE WEEK AVERAGE FOR HANDICAPPING. WEEK ONE IS DRAW FOR POSITIONS. WEEK TWO IS AN INVERSION FROM WEEK ONE POINTS. WEEK THREE IS A COMBINATION OF WEEKS ONE AND TWO’S POINTS. WEEK FOUR AND BEYOND WILL AVERAGE THE PREVIOUS THREE WEEKS TOTAL POINTS. EACH RACE MISSED YOU WILL BE AWARDED 65 HANDICAP POINTS (MAX NUMBER WEEKLY). ANY NEW... read more
