Thompson, CT — A Thompson man will be in court next week facing assault charges.
Police responded to reports of a stabbing and assault at the Thompson International Speedway on May 28, 2007. Officers secured the scene in the parking lot and spoke with witnesses.
NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour driver L.W. Miller is likely to have a few sleepless nights over the course of the next two weeks as the final two races of the season are set to be settled.
The reason the Mooresville, N.C., driver will be a bit worried is because he is the current Whelen Southern Modified Tour championship leader with a 55-point cushion over second-place Tim Brown. L.W. Miller is 77 points ahead of Burt Myers in third and 101 points ahead of two-time and defending Whelen Southern Modified Tour champion Junior Miller in fourth.
Waterford, CT — The Northeastern Midget Association is about to celebrate a unique milestone. Sunday’s appearance at the Town Fair Tire Finale (a 25 lapper) will be NEMA’s 75th event at Waterford Speedbowl.
“It has always been one of my favorite places,” offers Nokie Fornoro whose four Speedbowl wins stretch over 26years (1981-2007). Earlier this year Fornoro won a 25 lapper in a sensational six minutes, eight seconds. “Length, width, surface,” he says, makes the three-eights Speedbowl “an amazing Midget track.”
Mooresville, NC — Steve Park, one of only eighteen winners in all three top divisions in NASCAR, will once again be behind the wheel for the Dover Busch East event, piloting the #53 Waste Management machine for NDS Motorsports.
“Last year I had the opportunity to race for NDS Motorsports and Waste Management, and we brought home a second place finish. It was a blast to get back up here to the North East and run for such an excellent organization. I think we can bring home a strong finish, hopefully a win this time around,” Park said.
