EXCITEMENT BUILDING AT SPEEDWAY 51 2019 WILL HAVE A WHOLE NEW LOOK!

2019 is a rebuilding year for Speedway 51 powered by the Autosaver Group located in Groveton, New Hampshire. The beautiful Northern New Hampshire facility needed changes to help make the track grow to where it should be.  Divisions have been created, while some have been united, rules have been adjusted, new series have been introduced, purses are strong and the track is diversifying with such regular events as the all new ATV- UTV Front Stretch Drags, and the revival of Spectator Drags. Sponsors are flying onboard, and a large amount of new sponsors are also filling in the grid. Promoter and Marketing Manager, Dick Therrien stated, “This has been an incredible off season selling sponsorships to area and national businesses. We have major commitments from several businesses like the Autosaver Group and Abel Toll, Mom’s North Country Powersports, Pepsi-Cola, Caron Fabrication and White Mountains Community College just to name a few. Soon we will be posting a list of everybody that has committed to Speedway 51. We want to thank each and every one of them for their support. We are pleased that they keep renewing their sponsorship because they very pleased with the results they are getting for their marketing dollars. We are looking for a record year in sales for 2019.” For more information about Speedway 51, marketing opportunities and racing questions contact Dick Therrien at 802-274-8823 or E-mail him at dprdick@gmail.com.

VETERAN CHARGERS CLASS INTRODUCED AT SPEEDWAY 51 POWERED BY THE AUTOSAVER GROUP

Speedway 51 is proud to announce that they have added a very unique class of racers to their racing program for 2019 named the Veteran Chargers. There has been a large amount of interest since last year’s racing event held at the Mike Beattie’s Blast From The Past II race that featured many old time racers getting back behind the wheel of a racecar for a 15 lap race. Old time stars such as Aaron Bennett, Mike Bennett, “The Blue Noodle” Tim Russell and others all participated in the fan friendly event. Since that time several other former racers have shown interest in putting something together for a few races at Speedway 51 in 2019. So a new part time division has been formed. The Veteran Chargers will race a half dozen times during the season. The criteria and rules are listed below:   This division is for retired drivers (male or female) that haven’t raced since 2005 or before, or someone that has never raced before and is at least 62 years of age.   Eligible cars must follow the rules of either the Speedway 51 Street Stocks or Bone Stockers. You may have your own car or you may borrow one from a current racer.   Veteran Chargers will race only a feature race on their scheduled nights.   Veteran Chargers will race for trophies only. The top three in the race will each receive a trophy, and one to give the kids in the grandstands.   Points will be kept and the top five competitors will be honored at the Annual Banquet of Champions. Trophies only.... read more
