KENISON CLOSES OUT SPEEDWAY 51 POWERED BY THE AUTOSAVER GROUP WITH OCTOBERFAST 150 ENDURO VICTORY

             The best weather of the season greeted a full field of enduro warriors, and hearty race fans looking to enjoy the final racing event of 2017, Octoberfast 150 at Speedway 51 powered by the Autosaver Group in Groveton, New Hampshire. Jason Kenison powered his way to the lead and scored and impressive victory.               Thirty-nine cars and mini-vans lined up to take the green flag for the 150 lap grind. Drivers from Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, New York and the Province of Quebec started three wide on the backstretch and went hammer down when the green flag waved. Several drivers took their turn at the point, but mechanical woes and on track problems changed the top five on a regular basis. Jason Kenison grabbed the lead on lap 29 and never looked back. Charlie Rockwell, James Shufelt III, Paul Hodge and Nick Gilcris all battled hard for top five finishes. Late in the race Shufelt cut a right front tire and headed to the pits. Rockwell and Hodge made contact sending them spinning in turn one. Kenison survived one last three wide scare with two laps to go, but fought his way up the middle to the checkered flag. Kenison was followed by Hodge, Rockwell, Shufelt and Nick Gilcris. Jeff Keaten, Andy Hill, Mike Giroux, Mark Lundblad and Ken Hepburn completed the top ten.   OCTOBERFAST ENDURO 150 SPECIAL NOTES OF INTEREST   Due to a scorer mistake, Nick Gilcris lost four laps and fell from second to fifth in the final standings.   Second place finisher, Paul Hodge, who has been... read more
