NEW OWNERS TAKE OVER SPEEDWAY 51 WELCOME MIKE & STEPHANIE, RICHARD & WENDY HUMPHREY

Speedway 51 powered by the Autosaver Group in Groveton, New Hampshire has new owners, and they are chomping at the bit to get started at their new purchase. The new owners are Mike and Stephanie, as well as Richard and Wendy Humphrey from Cornish, Maine. The Humphrey’s purchased the Speedway from Joey Laquerre on Monday, September 16th. The Humphrey’s will take over the Speedway for the balance of the season, and in 2020, the track name will revert back to Riverside Speedway and Adventure Park.   The Humphrey name has been involved in the sport of auto racing for many years, and the group has now fulfilled a lifelong dream, and that is to own and operate a race track. The Humphrey family has been at the track for much of the season, talking with employees, racers and fans alike, and they certainly saw what they have been looking for, and that’s a quality family operation.   Mike Humphrey stated “This has been a dream for a long time. My brother and our wives love racing and we can’t wait to get to work on our new project. We want to get our feet wet the remainder of this year, and as soon as the 2019 schedule is completed we will be blasting into the 2020 schedule in earnest! We have lots of new plans for the future including adding a Bone Stock eight cylinder class as well as ATV racing and more. We want to make this a four season facility and a real family fun park!”   More information will be forthcoming in the near future. To... read more

ATTENTION ALL RACERS AND FANS

We were all caught by surprise by the weather issue that occurred last Saturday night, September 7th. Forecasters had predicted that we would be ok until later in the evening with a chance of a possible passing shower late in the day. As we all know that didn’t happen and has forced us to go to a backup plan for Saturday, September 21st. We were planning to run a Sunday rain date on the 8th, but unfortunately the weather forecast was worse for Sunday than Saturday. I visited the track Sunday morning and at 11:15 it was still drizzling so it was a good decision for all. The new plan seems kind of complicated but it really isn’t. We will announce this complete plan including pricing in the next couple of days. Please be patient as we sort out the best of plans.   Thank... read more
