What started out as Octoberfast turned into Novemberfast due to several rainouts, but finally the Weather Gods gave us a partly sunny, but chilly day to wrap up the 2018 racing season at Speedway 51 powered by the Autosaver Group in Groveton, New Hampshire. The winners on Mom’s North Country Powersports day included Erik Steele, Jason Porter and Jason Kenison. A solid thirty two car field lined up for the Novemberfast 151 Enduro. Jason Kenison from Groveton, New Hampshire jumped out to the front and survived three red flags and cruised to the $2,000 payday.  North Carolina native, Jamie Longley returned home and raced to a second place finish in the Charlie Rockwell Mobile. Jefferson, New Hampshire’s, Daniel Stinson placed third ahead of Shawn McLain, and Kyle Willis rounded out the top five.   Erik Steel from Barre, Vermont won the Spectator Drags.   Jason Porter from Freeport, Maine won the history making one on one Enduro Drags.
