COREY MASON NIPS CRAIG BUSHEY IN LATE MODELS MIKE CLARK HOLDS OF GILCRIS IN TIGER THRILLER

It was a night of nail biting, edge of your seat racing at Speedway 51 powered by the Autosaver Group in Groveton, New Hampshire as the Mid-Season Championship Night turned out to feature the best racing of the season.  Winners included Corey Mason, Mike Clark, Dean Switser Jr., Kaiden Fisher and Jimmy Hurley.   It was Round #3 of the Creative Counters / Vermont Solid Surfaces Late Model Series and it was a very suspenseful night. The 75 lap feature started with a scrum in turn three that sent point leader Corey Mason to pits with moderate frontend damage. Mason returned just before the green flag flew again. The race finally found its rhythm on lap eleven as Corey rebounded and now was challenging Craig Bushey on lap 23 for the lead. The pair ran side by side for close to 30 laps before Mason took over the point. Meanwhile Mike Kenison and Doug Laleme were battling hard for the final podium spot with Steve Fisher on that pair’s bumper. Bushey made a bonsai move under Mason for the lead in turn three as the lead pair swapped paint in turn four coming to the stripe, but Mason held on for the win. Kenison and Laleme tangled at the line with Kenison cutting a tire and Laleme collecting the front-stretch wall. Kenison placed third, Laleme fourth and Steve Fisher was fifth. Floyd Bennett Jr. and Bushey claimed heat victories.   The Dalton Mountain Motorsports / Caron’s Towing Tiger Sportsman once again put on the show of the night as Mike Clark picked up his career first Tiger win at Speedway... read more
