                Speedway 51 management has decided to make several changes to the remainder of the Car Show series, as several things have come up that is forcing us to make these changes.               The Car Show set for this Saturday at Sanel Auto Parts in Derby, Vermont has been cancelled due to some unplanned events at the Sanel venue. Since it was a last minute postponement, it didn’t give us time to reschedule the event this weekend. We have also decided to cancel the event at the Green Mountain Mall on the 29th of April. We have continually contacted racers about attending these shows and we are not receiving the kind of commitment necessary to make them work.               The Groveton Car Show will happen at Speedway 51 instead of downtown Groveton on Saturday, May 6th from 10am until 1pm. We are sorry for any inconvenience that these changes may bring.                For more information on this event and others please visit our website at www.speedway51int.com, or call the Track hotline at 802-479-2074.

It is with deep regret that the final Speedway 51 Car Show and Parade scheduled for downtown Groveton on Saturday, May 6th has been moved to the track on the same day. Due to a conflict with a community member over last year’s show, Speedway 51 owner decided it was in the best interest of the Track and the community to return the show back to Speedway 51. “We do not want to cause anyone a loss of business or ruin one of their busiest days of the week, stated owner Joey Laquerre. We feel that we need to keep community interest in Speedway 51 in a positive atmosphere. We will re-visit this event again next year.” For more information on this event and others please visit our website at www.speedway51int.com, or call the Track hotline at 802-479-2074.

It’s hard to believe that after such a long winter that the season opening events at Speedway 51 in Groveton, New Hampshire are less than one month away. After a highly successful winter season that saw the inaugural Winter Blast 100 snow race play before a full house in January, and the Vintage Snowmobile Racing Series wrapping up in March, it’s time to move back to racecars on Saturday, May 6th. The management at Speedway 51 has a whole new philosophy for the upcoming racing season, as they will concentrate more on taking care of the local racers and fans than bringing in outside touring groups. Track owner, Joey Laquerre stated “We tried something different last year at Speedway 51. We brought in a lot of outside touring series to entertain our fans. These events were pricey for the Track and we had to charge more to get in. Our racefans can’t afford the higher admission prices on a semi-regular basis and many stayed home on Saturday nights. We have cut way back on them in 2017. We will be bringing back the Wicked Good Vintage racers out of Maine. They put on a whale of a show last year and fans encouraged us to bring them back. Also the NEMA Lite Midgets will be back, the Near Antique racers and best of all, the Valenti Modified Racing Series will be back on Saturday, June 17th. Our new goal is to give our fans the best show available at fan friendly prices.” 2017 will see a five race series for the North Country Ford Late Models. This high paying... read more
