WHAT OTHER TRACKS IN THE NORTHEAST ARE GIVING FREE TIRES TO THEIR RACERS? None, and that’s why the 2017 season is looking super strong at the high banked, ¼ mile paved Speedway in Groveton, New Hampshire as the Tiger Sportsman will be the premiere division at the track in 2017.
The Tiger Sportsman tried running used Late Model tires in 2016 at the tail end of the season. The drivers were ecstatic about the way their racecars handled and the extra speed they got out of their racers. The best part was that the tires were free. Race teams were allowed to choose from a mountain of tires collected by the track and were not charged for the tires. There was a branding fee and all that money went into the drivers point fund. In 2017 it will be the same deal for race teams, free tires and branding money goes directly to the point fund. The 2017 Tiger Sportsman champion is expected to receive a check for approximately $3,000.
The North Country Ford late Models will be returning for a giant five race Series in 2017, a Series that will pay solid purses and offer a significant point fund to the top drivers. Interest is at a high level, and many of the teams that have been sitting on the sidelines for a couple of seasons are coming back to compete at Speedway 51. The North Country Ford Late Model Series fits many racers plans for this year as it features a schedule that is great for the low budget teams that can’t afford to run a full season, also teams that like more family time in the summer are excited. The purses are great, and the tire bill to run the full Series is only about $2,000.
Right now final touches are being done on the regular race schedule, go-karts, and the car show schedule. The 2017 racing season gets underway on Saturday, May 6th at 6pm.
